Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.

Neither Lake Ida or Lake Charley northwest of Alexandria are stocked with muskies by the Minnesota DNR, but a connection to Lake Miltona means some of the big fish make their way in. Park Rapids native Tayden George has quite a fish story to tell after landing a muskie near 50 inches long while fishing the channel that connects the two lakes.
