Please, please, please keep "Paul" in Brainerd-Baxter. Somewhere there must be a place for it. There are those of us in the Nisswa area who do not want the added noise, traffic and helicopter buzzing and traffic congestion and accidents that the amusement park will add to our mostly quiet neighborhood.
Franklin School usage
The hospital should buy Franklin Junior High School in Brainerd and move off any non-hospital essential services there. That would help the neighborhood, use existing buildings and keep houses and taxes on the north side.
'Annie' production, abandoned schools
The recent local production of "Annie" was a great event and our community is fortunate to have such opportunities available. Great job cast and crew! I hope our community leaders have the foresight to preserve and use these soon-to-be-abandoned school buildings (Franklin and Washington) so that we may continue to have these small venues for local theater, concerts, and other events.
