Dick Devine is leaving government service on his own terms.

After winning 11 elections in a row for Park Rapids School Board, then Hubbard County commission, Devine is calling it quits on his Dist. 2 county board position.


"Sixteen years is enough," the chairman of the board said.

Before that he served on the school board 18 years.

"Lasting that long on either one is pretty good, I guess," he laughed.
