Profiteers have been in the Middle East for years, exploiting lands for their oil! American profiteers join Putin in his greed and lust for power, selling arms often used to kill innocent people and our own soldiers. Profiteers, who rely on hate and confusion and religious wars to line their pockets.
When we lost John McCain the other day we didn't just lose a patriot, we lost one of the most respected politicians of our day. I'm not a party person when it comes to politics so it wasn't through any affiliation with that, that I loved John McCain. It was simply the respect I had for someone who served his country all of his life. There were many times I didn't agree with some of his decisions but I always respected him for the way he conducted his life, both in and out of politics.
Congratulations Mount Ski Gull 2017-2018 was the best season in history I have been waiting four months for the board of directors to announce that thanks to Missy and her staff our hill had a record breaking season. The best year ever. To the board of directors—publish the entire feasibility study findings. The truth will set you free. Mark Best Pequot Lakes
There are absolutely no words to express to the community our thanks to everyone who prayed, supported, encouraged, visited, hugged, phoned, sent cards and a million other things that have been done during Wheaties' illness and his passing away. Thank you to Pete Mohs for your phone calls, visits to Wheaties, articles in the newspapers and for speaking at his funeral. Thanks to Nancy Vogt for the emails and calls and encouragement. To Pequot Lakes School staff Lori Westlund, Marc Helmrich, Chris Lindholm, and Mike Renford that did so much so Wheaties' service could be at the school.
I am puzzled by so many of our lawmakers who support the man who is disgracing the office of the presidency. What do they tell their children? Do they tell them that it is OK for the president to lie? Do they tell them it is fine for him to disrespect anyone who disagrees with him? Perhaps they can excuse themselves by saying that they lacked the courage to object because they were afraid of the party no longer supporting them
Pequot Lakes Police Chief Eric Klang has served in law enforcement for a total of 25 years — as police chief since 2011 and as county sheriff from 2003-07. I feel his background and training, communication skills, and hands-on experience has prepared him represent Crow Wing County as its sheriff.
I see many job openings in the Brainerd lakes area. What are some of the reasons for so many job openings? Governor Dayton stated recently that all the people that want to work have jobs. What about people that are able to work but aren't working. Are they looking for work ?
"For it is better, if it is the will of God, to suffer for doing good than for doing evil." 1 Peter 3:17.
Several week ago my wife and I were traveling Crow Wing County Road 3 from Crosslake to Merrifield. When we reached the caution light at Andy's Restaurant I was attempting to make a left turn. Turning to check for any oncoming traffic from the right, my line of vision was obstructed due to a large bush. I had to pull far up to see any oncoming traffic.
We use the word "democracy" so easily, nearly forgetting what it means and what it meant to this nation. It is about self-determination, having a voice in the decisions and directions of the country and therefore your own life and the lives of loved ones.
