Doyle Turner and his father Doyle Turner Sr. will be playing at the Lake Bemidji State Park Summer Concert Series at 1 p.m. today—a nice father and son duo. The concerts are in the amphitheater but move inside in case of rain.
Although we all are remiss in acknowledging the inevitable: life is change; we are always surprised when something comes up that changes our lives.
