Spring sports season officially pushed back due to April snow

Old Man Winter’s latest unwelcome visit has officially delayed the start of the spring sports season at Glencoe-Silver Lake as this week’s regularly-scheduled baseball, softball and golf openers have all been pushed back.
The Panther baseball and softball teams were both originally slated to start their seasons against Sibley East in Gaylord on Thursday afternoon, but several inches of snow whitewashing the area again this week has forced the postponement of those games until at least Monday, April 23.

Koehler lives with heart defect

It was a scary time for Emily and Jon Koehler last summer. Their 6-1/2 month old daughter, Evie, was suddenly having great difficulty after trying some peanut butter. With her tiny fingers and toes beginning turning blue, Evie was rushed from Lester Prairie to Glencoe Regional Health Services.
“I thought she was having an allergic reaction,” said Emily, a teacher at Glencoe-Silver Lake High School.
However, after an emergency flight to Children’s Hospital in the Twin Cities, the reason for Evie’s malaise was discovered – she had a congenital heart defect known as “Tetralogy of Fallot.”

Marshall twins both on autism spectrum

There are a lot of things about the twins that are very typical for boys their age, such as a love of the outdoors and a penchant for coloring.
However, the pair are also on the autism spectrum and that makes for a whole different set of challenges for the Marshall family.
“They were late (premature births),” Morgan said. “They both are delayed in their development, such as speech and a few other things.”

LaFountaine deals with autism

Charley LaFountaine is very similar to many five-year-old girls. She’s energetic and enjoys the outdoors. She loves riding the bus to preschool, and when at home she is a big fan of watching “Bubble Guppies” on the television and listening to music.
Young Charley, one of two daughters born to Sheri and Travis LaFountaine of Glencoe, is also nonverbal autistic. She was diagnosed approximately two years ago, not long after the family moved to town.
