 Our democracy is threatened

By Lee H. Hamilton
With so much turmoil in Washington and around the country these days, it’s easy to get caught up in the crises of the moment. These are, indeed, worth our attention — but so are longer-running developments that threaten the health of our representative democracy. I want to lay them out in one place, so that the most serious problems confronting our system don’t slip from our attention.

GSL’s Knowledge Bowlers tie in Chaska

GSL Knowledge Bowlers made a short trip to Chaska Saturday to find some stiff competition. The teams there were some of the better teams in the state, including Big Lake, Buffalo, Chanhassen, Chaska, Hastings, Holy Family, Holy Angels, Mankato West, St. Thomas Academy and GSL.

Mediation under way to work out Trailblazer differences

Members of the Trailblazer Transit Joint Powers Board from McLeod and Sibley counties showed a willingness to sit down with their counterparts from Wright County Area Transit (WCAT) to try to save a partnership in the local transit system.
WCAT, late in 2016, served Trailblazer with a letter announcing its intent to withdraw from Trailblazer and start its own system within a year because of ongoing dissension amongst the board members.

Rapid progress being made on jail addition, entrance

Work on McLeod County’s jail expansion and courthouse security project is proceeding nicely, the county board heard Tuesday morning.
Sam Lauer of Contegrity, the construction management firm, noted that the addition was nearly “sealed up,” with the exterior walls and most of the roof being completed.
The atrium, located at the new entrance on the southeast side, was nearly enclosed as well.
Lauer said the masons are working on the main floor, putting in the walls for the cells.
