It is a real shame that people in Brainerd cannot have things in their yards without individuals wrecking it or stealing.
Can't we do better?
What is it with the phone system in the Brainerd School District? Call the district office number in the phone book and a recording says the number has been changed (gives the new number), then says don't leave a message even though at the end of the recording it says "leave a message after the tone." Then call the high school during school hours only to get a voice mail message asking you to leave your name and phone number. Can't we do better than this?
Join the protest march
I hope many people will come to the Iraq war protest march on Washington Street on Saturday at 2 p.m. We will gather at Gregory Park and march down Washington Street in Brainerd. There are many people from Brainerd going to Washington, D.C., to protest this costly war -- in lives and money. It started on a farce and continues to be one. Help end it and join us and millions others.
