Read the Bible I hope all you whiners are happy now you got your way. Never mind that the economy is in big trouble and people are losing homes and jobs. No, that does not matter obviously. Thank you very much. Are your children going to help me when I can no longer make my mortgage payment due to b...

Options are endless Thank you to all of you that voted yes for my children’s future. Those complaining about Nisswa snowbirds not being able to vote — it’s called absentee ballot! I was researching all of the other school districts tonight and seeing some of those districts operating at over $...

Anyone fix snow globes? We had the discussion on who had the best hamburgers, now, I have a request. Does anyone know anyone in the town of Brainerd or close by who fixes snow globes? I have a snow globe that has a leak and some of the water has evaporated. It’s an heirloom and I would love to hav...

Editor’s note: Today’s Vox Pop column includes the last comments on the election before Tuesday’s election. The Vox Pop Department of Civic Affairs wants everyone to remember to vote. Where’s the effort? I remember a few years ago when little kids came walking up to the door, all dressed up ...

Surprised I was totally surprised to see the Dispatch recommend we all vote for another scam referendum. In 45 years that I know of, they’ve never recommended a “no,” even on some ridiculous referendums. Someday maybe they could actually look at both sides of an issue so everyone could make an...

Boo to Halloween Here’s a Halloween tip for the parents: If you come to my house and the light’s not on, don’t knock on the door. If you don’t see any decorations, don’t knock on the door. Not all of us are going to sit there and give out candy. Looking for bologna? To the “high on the h...

Living high on the hog? For those complaining about the referendum, I have a suggestion: Why don’t you get yourselves in the classroom and help the teachers educate our youth on a wage almost comparable to that of a McDonald’s worker? That way we won’t have to raise your taxes and the class si...

Dumb place for building Well, I’m happy we’re going to have a curling club building, but why? It’s such a stupid place they’re building it. We probably lost some parking (at the county fairgrounds). We lost some pretty trees. Why didn’t they just build it right out on the road while they w...

Talking traffic? A company wants to build in Baxter, and provide a large tax base and employ 200 people, and we are talking traffic. Really, we are talking traffic. No wonder this country has economic problems. Crow Wing County has one of the worst unemployment rates in the state and we are taking t...

Lighten the load What is with all the homework! I have a child in 10th grade and the homework goes on for hours. Do the teachers not understand that each teacher is giving more and more homework. When are these kids able to get it all done along with after school sports, dinner and some family time?...
