The Auxiliary requests people wear a poppy in memory of U.S. veterans.

White blocks spell news in front of a stack of newspapers.

Hackensack American Legion Auxiliary will distribute poppies to Hackensack businesses May 13-14.

May is poppy month and red poppies are worn to commemorate the sacrifice of men and women who gave their lives fighting for their country. The Auxiliary requests people wear a poppy in memory of U.S. veterans.

Those who wish to donate to the Unit 202 poppy fund to support veterans can leave a check payable to Unit 202 Poppy Fund at the Legion Post or mail it to P.O. Box 414, Hackensack, MN, 56452.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.

Hi, I'm the Brainerd Dispatch. I started working a few days before Christmas in 1881 and became a daily paper two years later. I've gone through a lot of changes over the years, but what has never changed is my commitment to community and to local journalism. I've got an entire team of dedicated people who work night and day to make sure I go out every morning, whether in print, as an e-edition, via an app or with additional information at News, weather, sports — videos, photos, podcasts and social media — all covering stories from central Minnesota about your neighbors, your lakes, your communities, your challenges and your opportunities. It's all part of the effort to keep people connected and informed. And we couldn't do it without support.
