Lady Panthers' season ends in subsection semis

An exciting and successful campaign that was the Glencoe-Silver Lake volleyball team’s 2015 season came to a close Monday night in a loss to Belle Plaine in the Section 2AA North subsection semifinals.

The Panthers put forth a valiant effort against the Tigers – not only the top-seeded team in the subsection, but also the No. 1-ranked team in Class AA – but could not keep up in the face of their opponent’s ferocious power.

Storm water ponds out of picture altogether

A mere two weeks ago, the Glencoe City Council appeased concerns regarding its proposed storm water pond in the city cemetery, posed as part of the Armstrong Avenue improvement project, by taking that option out of the equation.
Proposed, instead were several other sites, all with potential issues to be resolved: some weren’t on city-owned land, others would require extensive excavation.
Rising to the challenge, the city and its engineering consultant, SEH, came up with another option: an underground pipe to divert the storm water into the existing system.
