Trina Wells strings lights Tuesday, Nov. 30, 2021, on her porch in north Brainerd. Wells' home is always a favorite for the holidays with several inflatable scenes in her front yard. She remarked that her husband is an electrician, so she has several electric displays and lights illuminating her home for the holidays.

I was raised on a farm in western Minnesota where I participated in 4-H, high school sports, and everything that farm kids do for fun after chores. Graduated from Ridgewater Community College with an AA degree and my first taste of newspapering. I worked a summer on the Ortonville Independent as a reporter and photographer.
