I was on my way to an assignment in Jenkins to get pictures of an orchard and quite suddenly found myself stuck in Road Construction Purgatory for the sin of believing that I could go from Nisswa to Pequot Lakes without any trouble. Silly me.
Probably for the same reason every other critter in the county crosses them. Over the past week I've seen no fewer than 3 dead skunks on the road I drive to work. Although I feel bad for the dead animals, I've always wondered how, exactly, does one manage to hit a skunk?

For 8 weeks this summer, kids flocked to the Brainerd Public Library for the Summer Reading Program "One World Many Stories." Children traveled the world this summer by exploring exotic places such as Africa and Antarctica through stories, guest speakers, crafts, music, dance, and other activities. We have seen imaginations opened to a world that TV and video games just cannot provide.
