How great to hear of the proposed veterans' home and hospital being planned in Brainerd. The former state hospital is available. How convenient for this space to be utilized. Our thanks to Mr. Don Samuelson for his efforts in trying to make this worthy project become a reality in the near future. Thanks again, Don - Brainerd's good and faithful servant.
In regard to U-turns at the post office, why doesn't the city or post office put in a second drop-off inlet on the east side of the street? If there's enough space to make a U-turn, there's enough space to make another drop-off spot from the driver's side of the car. I'm aware there's a mailbox on the right side of the car now, but that requires a driver to park and get out to access it which increases the possibility for vehicle and pedestrian accidents. Why not spend money where the result would be useful?
