I have always considered myself to be fairly athletic. A dedicated sports nut, whether it be watching or playing, I have embraced all that sports have had to offer for as long as I can remember.
Soccer, basketball and lacrosse were my main focuses, with bouts in fast pitch softball, volleyball, track and field and even golf; the latter of which has been my enemy since those summers in the junior golf league at Oak Glenn in sixth and seventh grade.

Anton Treuer (pronounced troy-er), Minnesota Ojibwe author and Professor of Ojibwe at Bemidji State University, visits the Brainerd Public Library on Thursday, May 31 at 6:00pm. He’ll present on his most recently released book “Everything You Wanted to Know About Indians but Were Afraid to Ask.” More than one hundred stereotype-debunking questions—thoughtful, awkward, and searching—answered with solid information, humor, and compassion. He’ll also present on his children’s book Awesiinyensag, published in 2011.
The mood of "Amen Corner" was established the moment we took our seats at the Wurtele Thrust Stage. We can see into the church, and the housing unit below. Someone is lying on the street. People walk by. Kids run, giggle and play. A man is pick-pocketing someone. Then, a cop appears. We feel like we're in a rough neighborhood. This is a glimpse of life in a city, in a place where everyone is doing what they can to survive. Some people turn to crime, to alcohol, and others to extreme religion.
I guess plans for a massive shopping spree before the world ended Dec. 21, 2012 — according to the Mayan calendar predictors — are off. It sounded like a good idea especially since no one would be around to send the bills. But it turns out the world isn't destined to end that day after all.
In the Guatemalan rain forest, at a noted Mayan site, scientists found the calendar continues well beyond December 2012.
Researchers at Xultun in Guatamala found wall paintings projecting 7,000 years into the future.
After years of touring the Midwest with their bluegrass band, childhood best friends Joe Mailander and Justin Lansing, originally of Denver, Colorado, decided to return to where it all began: childhood imagination. That’s when they moved to Minneapolis to start their family music band called The Okee Dokee Brothers. They will be here to delight and inspire you on Thursday, May 17th at 3:30pm at the Brainerd Public Library. And the best part is it’s all free of charge, affordable for any family.
