MN History Players' "John Beargrease" to tour Kitchigami Libraries
Friday, February 21, 1:00 p.m. Brainerd Public Library
Join us as John Beargrease, Native American fur trader and mail carrier, comes to life! Using props and artifacts, a costumed History Player will engage us all in the memorable life story of John Beargrease in the late 1800s on Minnesota's North Shore.
Ten years ago this month I boarded a plane for an island country I knew little about and, frankly, had never really given much thought. I was 18, I didn't give a lot of thought to a lot of things.
A decade later, it's rare that a day goes by that I don't think about my time in Haiti.
When the tiny half-an-island nation was obliterated by the earthquake one year ago today, I found myself glued to my TV. Watching helplessly from the frozen north, I worried for my friends. I was taken back to the winter of 2001 that I spent in Port-Au-Prince.
News of the death of Brainerd's Patt Krantz, brought to mind a lesson she taught me — one every reporter should keep in mind.
Patt was an energetic woman, an active member of Trinity Lutheran Church and a tireless promoter of the Brainerd Lakes Chapter of Sweet Adelines. As city editor I often worked with her, arranging news photos that would help promote Sweet Adelines' concerts and fundraisers.
Even the littlest of Lakes area residents need some time of their own. A baby storytime for those from birth to 24 months will be held every Thursday morning at 11:15 am starting February 17th. Come to the Brainerd Public library with your little one for stories, music and songs. Read with your baby everyday. It's a great excuse to cuddle.
