What's this guy's deal?
You might have seen him -- the man in red who has been standing all day long, propping up a red cross around Detroit Lakes.
Who is he and what is his deal?
His name is Obadiah Franklin, and he is a preacher from West Virginia -- complete with a southern drawl.
Franklin is in Detroit Lakes, an invited guest of the Christian Retreat at Strawberry Lake.
