Brainerd High School student Violet Goodwin slides down a piece of plastic coated with detergent and blue color dye Tuesday, Sept. 20, 2022, near the high school. As part of the activities during homecoming week, students were encouraged to wear white Tuesday and take the slide in the blue dye and water. The event was sponsored by the Brainerd High School Student Council. On one of the last days of summer, temperatures rose to 83 degrees Tuesday. Autumn officially arrives Thursday.

More visual storytelling

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.
