Take my advice and stop talking about "how great your area is" if you want to avoid your area becoming the next Brainerd eyesore where only business owners win and everyone else gets lowered quality of living as the masses and taxes rise.

"Alaska has about 3,197 officially named natural lakes,out of over 3,000,000 unnamed natural lakes," Wikipedia. Alaska has boroughs though, maybe the writer saw this loophole and justified saying Ottertail Cty has more lakes than any in the entire United States. However, this statement is blatantly false.
