    Some people do care, especially those who knew her in the nisswa area. She was a great asset to the community. Why be so negative?

    Nisswa is like every other small town in Northern Minnesota. A bunch of self centered groups and snobby cliques that don’t socialize with “outsiders”. I have lived and worked in many areas up north; Little Falls, Brainerd, Hibbing, Grand Rapids, Detroit Lakes. Lots of drunks wanting to start a fight with you and the rest spreading b.s. rumors. They want your tourist cash, but they also want you out of their town. Don’t ever try living up there and expect to make friends.

      Never had a problem in Brainerd or Nisswa as a seasonal resident with any of what you mentioned Jessica.

      I’d wager the problem was you, and that was what they were trying to remedy.

    • I'm just saying...

      Do you have a point? How is your jealous rant even related to the story?

  • OMG

    I can’t believe you people, a family has lost a loved one and you make these kind of comments and WCCO should be ashamed of themselves to allow people to comment on stories of others tragedy. WCCO YOU ARE DISGUSTING

    For those of you that are new and getting upset: take nothing serious that you see on this comment board. It happens on every story regardless of how serious the subject. It is some people’s actual form of entertainment to hide behind their computer and try to come up with some new shock value. In other words it is a chicken-s*$# way to say whatever you want and remain anonymous

      It’s our way of accurately pointing out how many friggin’ dorks and useless minorities that Minnesota shelters, without having to put up with your stupid whining.

      Now, you can go finish your soup, AFTER you finish shining my boots. Oh, and while you’re down there…

      • nothing new

        My point exactly. This post by fah que is actualy an attempt to be funny and intimidating. When really all this guy needs to do is look in the mirror to find a “friggin’ dork” and accept the fact that he likes other guys to go down on him (but preferably not minorities because he doesn’t want to feel…you know inadequate).

    should of gotten out of the tub before getting smashed and passing out.
    Thats what happens when you try and swim with the fishes.

    Kari was an amazing woman. She was kind, out-going, and was full of life and laughter. This is a tragedy and she will be sorely missed.
