Drinking and driving: Choices do have consequences; to Backstroms it is personal

“Life happens when you have other plans,” Nathan Backstrom said Thursday afternoon to an engrossed audience of secondary students at Glencoe-Silver Lake High School. He had their attention.
Backstrom, his wife, Connie, and son, Charles, were part of a McLeod County MEADA-sponsored program about drunk driving and its consequences. They know the consequences first-hand.
As the Backstroms spoke, one could hear a pin drop in the high school gymnasium.

Brownton Library: new librarian, new space; more material, events

It’s National Library Week, which seems like a good time to introduce the new librarian at the Brownton Public Library, and some of the activities that are going on, both this week and throughout the year.
Sylvia Muecke is the new librarian. The North Dakota native has lived in Brownton for 12 years with her husband, Bruce. The couple has two sons.
Muecke said she pursued a degree in secondary art education at Dickinson State University in North Dakota. She moved to Minnesota in pursuit of a job.

GSL Knowledge Bowl 2nd at state; wins Heritage Spirit award

The Glencoe-Silver Lake Knowledge Bowl Black team captured second place at the State Class A competition, April 10, at Brainerd. The GSL Purple team earned the Heritage Spirit award at the meet.
St. John’s Prep won the competition with 128.5 points, while GSL Black finished at 120, an excellent score, according to GSL Coach Vicky Harris.
After a pep fest wishing them luck, Glencoe-Silver Lake’s two Knowledge Bowl teams headed up to Brainerd for the state meet.
“They had been practicing since March when the two teams placed first and third at the regional meet,” Harris said.

Panthers still strong in relays

It’s only been one week of outdoor competition, but the Panther track and field teams have had an opportunity to see some different competition, and try individuals in events they may not normally compete in.
Thursday at Willmar, the girls took fifth out of eight teams with 42.9 points, while the boys claimed sixth out of nine teams with 55.5.
Previous to Thursday, Glencoe-Silver Lake traveled to Mankato for a quad featuring Mankato West, Waconia and Waseca on April 8.

First 2-0 start since 2005 season

“It’s been a while since we’ve started 2-0,” Head Softball Coach Steve Davis said after his team notched victories over Lester Priairie/Holy Trinity and Mound Westonka last week. In fact, it’s almost been a decade since the 2005 team downed Lester Prairie 10-0, and BOLD 11-1 to open the season with back-to-back wins.
But after beating the Bulldogs 9-3 Thursday, and the White Hawks 11-1 in six innings Friday, the Glencoe-Silver Lake Panthers find themselves in a position that’s been foreign for multiple years, sitting at 2-0.

Stewart City Council abandons plans to improve Winona Street

The Stewart City Council voted Monday night to drop Winona Street from its latest round of street and utility improvements.
The street runs for one block north and south between Highway 212 and Croyden, and has St. Paul’s Lutheran Church on the east side and the church’s parsonage on the west.
At issue is the church’s desire to keep the street at its current 58-foot width to accommodate angle parking, rather than having it narrowed to a standard 38-foot residential street.
