Thanks for the quilts
I wanted to comment on the article in Neighbors on Page 1N about Catherine Blaeser who makes quilts. She's 92 years old and she's from Breezy Point. I wanted to thank her, and many women like her, because of women like her, I can keep warm now. I got some quilts after going through a fire. I appreciate this fine talent and art and wish there were more women like her. Maybe the younger generation can pick up some skills from her. I know I've done some handsewing of my own and it's very difficult work. Also, I read in the crimes area where some kids were ripping off cars up in northeast. All I can say is I hope they get their car stereo ripped off someday so they can know how it feels.

Based on prior printed comments The Dispatch has seemed to portray those complaining about the price of gas and its fluctuation as whiners with unfounded complaints. If you saw the recent WCCO-TV Dimension report, they have found a trend among Twin Cities stations to raise the price of gas every two weeks on Thursdays. I have noticed that there seems to be this same kind of trend in Brainerd as well.
No need to drive?
Evidently Gov. Jesse Ventura figures he's only governor of the big cities that have good public transportation when he said that we don't need to smoke, that's true, and we don't need to drive. How does the other half that doesn't live in the big cities get to work to pay the taxes? He certainly doesn't make sense to me.
Clean up after pets
I live in the Baxter area and I walk a small dog. What annoys me is while I'm walking I notice, on some of the walking paths, how inconsiderate some people must be to let their "huge dogs" do their jobs in other people's yards and directly on the path. I at least will carry a small bag to collect the pooh after mine's done her job. How would they like it if they were out in their yards and they stepped in the stuff? Please people, think about other neighbors and not yourselves when out letting your pets relieve themselves and clean up or maybe we need to have a pooper scooper ordinance like they do in other cities.
