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 Website Admin and Editor. The Dispatch has been an interesting and challenging place to work these 30+ years. I was here when the website first went live on April 26, 1986. I consider myself very fortunate to have seen so many changes and to have made so many friends, both co-workers and customers.
