Dennis Dalman, thank you for the wonderful editorial you wrote in the April 6 Sartell-St. Stephen and St. Joseph Newsleaders (“Pass bonding bill to fix Fort Snelling”).
I think it’s more critical now than ever for legislators to hear from their constituents about their desire to see a revitalized Historic Fort Snelling. Your paper is just the key to getting their ear. Thank you, again.
Dalman was born and raised in South St. Cloud, graduated from St. Cloud Tech High School, then graduated from St. Cloud State University with a degree in English (emphasis on American and British literature) and mass communications (emphasis on print journalism). He studied in London, England for a year (1980-81) where he concentrated on British literature, political science, the history of Great Britain and wrote a book-length study of the British writer V.S. Naipaul. Dalman has been a reporter and weekly columnist for more than 30 years and worked for 16 of those years for the Alexandria Echo Press.
