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.

She reminded me that her hands had been on Bill Clinton and that I wasn't touching her until I washed my hands.
Eric Justin shared these colorful sunset photos he captured of Raylee, Karma, and Zaeda Braswell and Gabe and Zeke Stevens out Saturday evening trying to catch crappies from a lake near Merrifield. Justin says the crappies were not cooperating, but that, "the sunset was well worth the trip out". After seeing these pictures, we would have to agree they were rewarded with a visual treat.

Sharen Lorch of Crosslake sent us this milestone fishing photo. Jesse Lorch, age 4 of Fort Worth, TX, caught his first fish at grandma and grandpa's place on Goodrich Lake near Crosslake.

They go out with Daddy and Gramps every morning and evening." Jesse caught the fish using a Sponge Bob Square Pants fishing pole with a kernel of corn for bait.
