Who says you can't go home again?

Such is definitely not the case for Guy Fischer, who became Becker County's new housing and economic development coordinator at the beginning of January.


Fischer, a 1979 graduate of Detroit Lakes High School, says that moving back to the community has been "an adjustment," but only because of the timing.

"Moving up here in the middle of winter was an adjustment," he said. "But it is milder than I remember."
