Watermark galleries are free and open to the public from 10 p.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday at 505 Bemidji Ave. N. in Bemidji.

The Bemidji String Quartet concludes its Northern Minnesota tour Sept. 10, performing works by Mozart and Grieg.

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.
