April 8th

Grievance, street funding, recycling topics at city’s personnel committee

The personnel and legislative committee of the Glencoe City Council held a brief meeting last Wednesday afternoon in the Glencoe City Center west conference room, and then went into closed session to discuss a Glencoe Police Federation grievance.
While nothing was made public on the police grievance, during the open session the committee members discussed support for a League of Minnesota Cities (LMC) resolution concerning transportation funding, and were given an update on the county’s upcoming takeover of the city’s recycling program.

Continued improvement is name of the game for boys’ golf team

With the members of the Glencoe-Silver Lake boys golf team looking to improve and refine their game this season, one key victory has already been achieved – practicing outside before the end of March.
With the snow having mostly receded by the first day of Spring, the Panthers were already getting out and practicing on the links at Glencoe Country Club. It’s a far cry from the last few seasons, when winter’s icy grip kept the team hitting balls into a net inside the high school gym. 

Strength in numbers for boys’ track and field team

Buoyed by a program-best 46 members in ninth- through 12th-grade, the Glencoe-Silver Lake boys’ track and field team looks to continue its strong tradition and build on successes of the past. 
“We’ve been fortunate to have very good track teams here,” coach Josh Metcalf said. “Kids keep coming out and our numbers keep improving every year.”

Girls squad ready to roll on track and in the field

They’re younger and deeper – and there are more of them. The Glencoe-Silver Lake girls track and field team has entered the 2015 season with numbers in the upper 30s, leading to more hands on deck to compete across a broad spectrum of events.
Youth will be served this season, as only five seniors dot the roster.
