Reader commenting on articles will end after Friday server move

We will be moving our websites, and, from the servers of Morris Communications to those of our new owners, Forum Communications on Friday morning.

While we anticipate (and hope) that no issues will crop up, please be patient should service be interrupted or access be sporadic between 8:00 am and 10:00 am central time Feb. 28.

In order to operate efficiently, maintain priority services and also conform to new policies and programming, access to and use of our Spotted© websites and will cease, along with reader commenting ability on articles on both websites. Our affiliation and use of Associated Press content will end also.

Our UpNorthAutos, UpNorthHomeFinder and UpNorthJobFinder websites will be merged into the Forum Communications products; CarsHQ, JobsHQ and HomesHQ and be joined by ApartmentsHQ.

This work should not affect our e-editions, N.I.E or iPad editions.

Thank you in advance for your patience.

After graduating high school in 2004, I attended Central Lakes College in Staples, MN for 2 years where I got a diploma in Communication Art and Design. I then transfered up to Bemidji State University in, you guessed it, Bemidji, MN. In the spring of 2009, I graduated from BSU. Then in the fall of 2009 I got a job at Echo Publishing, a sister company to the Brainerd Dispatch.
