BRAINERD — Heartland Poet, a local chapter of the League of Minnesota Poets, meets 10 a.m.-1 p.m., Saturday, January 7 in the small room of the Brainerd Public Library. The meeting will open with a poetry reading. Attendees should bring poems to read to others. Following the reading, information and material regarding upcoming events and opportunities for writing and submission will be discussed. Attendees are asked to bring copies of a new poem or two in-progress, so others may more fully appreciate the effort. This is a time for discussion of ongoing work. This meeting is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "Pineandlakes Echo Journal." Often, the "Pineandlakes Echo Journal" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
