Vox Pop -May 5

Can you imagine?

With the weather finally warming, I look back over the last couple of weeks and wonder if you can imagine how cold it would have been without global warming?

 

More big businesses needed

This concerns Brainerd being a tourist trap. Brainerd needs more high-paying jobs or entry level jobs for people who have been out of work for a long time with a better salary than the minimum wage. Brainerd needs to be a big business town. The only big business we have is the paper mill. I want to see Brainerd like the Twin Cities and Duluth with big businesses.
