Handing over the keys to new business
By Sarah Smith
The locksmith business has conformed to technology and is no longer a skeleton key slipping into a hole. Part computer technician, part mechanical engineer, part physicist and all businessman, Joe Eisterhold is in the process of assuming ownership of what is now Park Rapids Lock & Key, three miles south of Park Rapids.
