Need a Good Laugh? Brainerd Community Theatre Delivers with ‘The Odd Couple’

One of America’s most famous and beloved comedies, Neil Simon’s ‘The Odd Couple,’ headlines a summer season of theatre produced by Brainerd Community Theatre (BCT). The hilarity begins on June with performances June 22-24 and 29-July 1. All performances will be performed at 6:30 p.m. on the outdoor stage on the south lawn of Brainerd’s Central Lakes College campus.

BCT Director Patrick Spradlin said the play was chosen to meet several criteria. “We wanted to greet the relaxed health protocols with something that would be met with loud and continuous laughter. Who doesn’t need that after what we’ve been through as a society? This play is well known, it’s well written, and it will definitely give our audience a reason to laugh.”

DNR Enforcement Division welcomes aboard 2 new K9 teams

The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources Enforcement Division’s K9 Unit now has six dog/handler teams spread across the state, following the recent graduation of two teams from a 17-week K9 school. Lt. Phil Mohs and CO Scott Staples – and their dogs Mack and Fennec, respectively - graduated May 27 and began working in the field immediately thereafter.

The multi-purpose dogs in the K9 Unit assist in search-and-rescue missions, can sniff out fish and game, and have the ability to locate firearms and spent ammunition. Three of the dogs, including Mack, also are trained to smell zebra mussels. Both Mohs and Staples have previous experience as K9 handlers. Mohs, who coordinates the K9 Unit, is a former dog handler in the Army. Staples and his former K9 partner Schody, who retired earlier this year, worked together for 10 years.
