Bear by Mississippi river

I had to look to see what the other people were looking at from the bridge. I seen they were looking at a bear. I search my place for a better camera. Even though my smart phone is good, not good enough. So, I get my big camera.


distance learning at Brainerd Public Schools (and my perspective)

Brainerd Schools went back and forth between hybrid (either in person limited hours or a combination between online and in person) and distance learning(online) in 2020-2021.
Brainerd Schools went to mostly in person for the 2021-2022 school year with an option for high school students to enroll part time in a new online school.
