Trailblazer ridership up, expenses down

Rides are up, costs are down, the Trailblazer Transit Joint Powers Board heard Thursday morning.
Executive Director Gary Ludwig reviewed by ride statistics and a mid-year expense and revenue report with the board members.
The transit system is running considerably under its proposed budget for several reasons, Ludwig said. The system has only spent about 36 percent of its projected expenses through the first six months of 2015. The total annual budget is about $4.17 million.

Cross country teams have much running to do this week

As they prepared for a stretch of four runs in seven days, the Glencoe-Silver Lake boys’ and girls’ cross-country teams competed in just one race last week, finding themselves on the 5-kilometer course at Baylor Park for the second time this season on Tuesday, Sept. 15 in the annual Norwood Young America Lions Invitational.
The GSL boys took seventh in their 19-team field, while the Panther girls placed 11th among the 19 teams in their competition. 

Gridders head into Homecoming at 5-0

A dank evening in Watertown did not dampen the spirits of the Glencoe-Silver Lake football team improved to 5-0 with a 33-0 blanking of host Watertown-Mayer on Friday, Sept. 18.

While the Royals were able to keep the Panthers offense in check for the first half, the GSL defense was solid from start to finish in notching its second shutout of the season.

“The defense is playing well,” linebacker Tristan Weber said. “Every game we’re doing better.”
