Strength through community


Christmas is almost here. The season when we give to those we care for, even our pets.

Many of us have a Christmas stocking for our dogs or cats stuffed with some treats or a new toy. Our “kids” even have a holiday outfit they grudgingly wear for a short time. These are the lucky animals.

The strength of our communities is proven by how we treat our most vulnerable. We have caring organizations aimed at our youth, elderly and others, but nothing for the homeless animals.

I've worked at the Brainerd Dispatch with various duties since Dec. 7, 1983. Starting off as an Ad Designer and currently Director of Audience Development. The Dispatch has been an interesting and challenging place to work. I'm fortunate to have made many friends, both co-workers and customers.
