Facing an estimated $17 trillion federal deficit, members of a capacity crowd at the Central Lakes College cafeteria sharpened their pencils and went to work Wednesday night. Rep. Rick Nolan, D-Minn., co-sponsored the interactive public forum designed to solicit advice on how to balance the federal budget. The forum was also sponsored by Central Lakes College in Brainerd and the Concord Coalition, a nonpartisan group that champions fiscal stewardship. Sara Imhof, midwest regional director of the Concord Coalition, delivered a brief primer on the budget problem, addressing both short-term and long-term challenges.
