Letter to the editor

To the editor,
The final Glencoe Community Blood Drive for 2018 was held Wednesday, Nov. 14, from 1 to 7 p.m. The American Red Cross set our goal at 105 units, and we exceeded that goal by collecting 111 units: 84 whole blood units and 27 from power red units.
The Red Cross is in such dire straits for their blood supply that they are happy with any number of units that we are able to collect. Surpassing the goal was frosting on the cake. Each unit collected may help up to three people, so the 111 total units may provide hope and life to 333 patients.

Moving forward: GSL contracts should’ve been renewed

T here is little reason to doubt GSL School Board Director Clark Christianson is a thoughtful, measured man. His words at last Monday’s board meeting were from his heart and mind.
Christianson was frustrated directors Donna VonBerge, Kevin Kuester and board chairman Jamie Alsleben opposed new contracts for Superintendent Chris Sonju and Michelle Sander, the district’s business manager in the wake of a failed operating levy. We recognize Christianson’s befuddlement with the rationale the three board members used to justify opposing new contracts.

City gives wastewater treatment plant the go-ahead

After years of discussion, planning, design work, grant applications and politicking for funding, the Glencoe City Council finally gave construction of a wastewater treatment plant the go-ahead Monday night.
The plant will use the existing site south of Highway 212 and west of Morningside Drive along Buffalo Creek and also build new buildings on the site. The original facility and its equipment were built and installed in 1956 and updated in 1971 and again in 1992.
