A lot of work for a little bit of a sore throat

I woke up early Tuesday morning (and by early, I mean 3 a.m.) with three annoying sensations — a sore throat, an earache, and the feeling that my dog was staring at me with that “I need to go out, and I need to go out right now,” look in his eyes.
I had heard over the weekend that head colds were making their fall emergence, along with the Asian beetles. Neither are very welcome in my household.

Commissioners, foundation need to consider small towns, also

To the Editor:
I read with interest the article in last week’s Chronicle (Oct. 7) that the county commissioners want to use county property under the umbrella of Southwest Initiative Foundation to promote the city of Glencoe. I would hope that the commissioners and Southwest Initiative Foundation would spend more time and money promoting the small cities in McLeod County that are struggling to keep their cities operating.

Bringing awareness to domestic violence

By Glynis Vacek
Family violence, domestic assault, and intimate partner violence are words we hear in the news every day. Domestic violence has many names and many victims. It knows no boundaries. It doesn’t matter how much money you have, or where you live. It doesn’t matter what your race, religion, or sexual orientation is. Anyone can become a victim of domestic violence.

‘Beam signing’ celebration

Employees of Glencoe Regional Health Services (GRHS) were invited Monday to become a personal, permanent part of a $4.1 million expansion project.

Anderle farm named a 2015 Century Farm

Vintage is the word the Anderle family uses to describe their farm located about halfway between Glencoe and Silver Lake. Vintage indeed, the land was first purchased almost 150 years ago by their great-great-grandfather, Joseph Anderle, and is still run by the family today.
This summer, the Anderle farm was recognized as a Minnesota Century Farm at the McLeod County Fair.

Miller Manufacturing celebrates 10 years as part of Glencoe

Miller Manufacturing recently celebrated its 10th year as part of the Glencoe community. The company’s manufacturing and distribution facility first came to town in 2005.
Marketing Communications Manager Ashley Lenz explained the move allowed the company to consolidate its facilities in Dassel, Savage and Amery, Wisconsin.
In its 10 years in Glencoe, the facility went from 75 employees to more than 350. Lenz explained this was possible through organic growth.
“It was all by acquisition of other companies and new products,” she said.

Minnesota Nice starts boxing up care packages for soldiers

Minnesota Nice is already packaging up boxes to send to soldiers, according to local organizers.
One of those organizers, Linda Krueger of Glencoe, said the local group is already receiving e-mails that new units have been sent to remote locations where supplies are very limited — the nearest PX can be up to 60 miles away and it is very dangerous to travel.
Minnesota Nice sends soldier care packages through the Christmas season.
