Denton (Denny) Newman Jr.
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.

Ron and Amanda LaMere helped dedicate a sign in memory of their mother, Vicki LaMere, on Sunday, May 18, at Fritz Loven Park in Lake Shore. Vicki was a lifelong resident of Lake Shore and a city council member when she died in 2010. She was the council liaison to the Park and Recreation Committee and was involved in Fritz Loven Park for many years. Mike Sedivy of Aardvark Signs donated the sign that was installed at the fishing pier at Stoney Brook. “One of her dreams was to have a fishing pier at the park,” Mayor John Terwilliger said at the dedication.
The Cass County Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) is ready to implement the first year of an Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS) prevention program. Becoming educated on the threats AIS pose and taking steps to prevent their introduction is everyone’s responsibility, whether they live on a lake or not. Everyone enjoys going to the lake — anglers to catch their biggest fish for stories later, water-skiers to show off their latest tricks or the couple going on a relaxing boat ride around the lake. All must take part in the reduction of AIS in Minnesota’s waters.

Nancy and Glenn Krause mesmerized Breezy Point Area Women’s Club members who attended the monthly luncheon Wednesday, May 7, by telling the women that black bears have a mystique all their own. The couple delivered a presentation where they shared their lives and passion as active researchers living among the bears and interacting with them as though they are family pets. They collect and record massive amounts of data, including counting them, collaring them without tranquilizing or caging them, and simply observing them.
Pequot Lakes police responded to a call of a foul smell from a unit in Janice’s Estates and Pines on May 12, and they discovered a body inside. Rene Paul Volcke, 63, was found dead in his apartment on Olson Street at 8:52 a.m. Preliminary autopsy reports indicate Volcke succumbed to a medical issue. It is unknown how long Volcke’s body remained undiscovered, but it was likely several days. “He was a loner,” said Police Chief Eric Klang. “There wasn’t anyone checking on him.”
The Jenkins City Council on Monday, May 12, appointed Brad Person of Breen & Person LTD as the city attorney following the January decision to seek a new attorney. The city personnel committee recommended Person from a pool of four applicants. Breen & Person has offices in Brainerd and Crosslake. Of the four applicants, two others were considered and were close in charges for their service. City clerk Krista Okerman said Person had good references, and his proximity and miscelaneous charges factored into the decision to recommend him for the city.
The Northern Minnesota Railroad Heritage Association (NMRHA), also known as the Northern Trackers Railroad Club, set up one of its model train layouts April 9 at the Crosslake Area Library for the Preschool Story Hour.

Martin leads the Preschool Story Hour group each week, assisted by library volunteer Phyllis McAfee.
