Sad to hear of crime’s impact on children

It was disturbing enough Tuesday morning to listen to County Attorney Mike Junge report that crime in the county had risen “dramatically” in the county in 2017 over 2016. It was absolutely heartbreaking to hear about the impact of crime on our county’s children.

What happened to school’s fiscal responsibility?

To the Editor:
I feel as a parent of the community for the last 15 years, I have watched Glencoe-Silver Lake School district go through many changes —some good, some not so good. Unfortunately, I believe we have hit a “not-so-good” threshold.

By Lee H. Hamilton
In a world riven by tension, there’s one skill that stands above all others: the ability to resolve conflict. It is the paramount challenge of our time.

Junge: Crime up ‘dramatically’ in McLeod County

Crime is up in McLeod County, particularly in regard to drug-related crimes and child protection issues, the McLeod County Board heard at its Tuesday morning meeting.
McLeod County Attorney Mike Junge presented his 2017 report to the county board.
“Criminal activity is not decreasing; in fact, it is increasing dramatically,” said Junge. The attorney’s office charged 508 felony or gross misdemeanor crimes in 2017, up by nearly 200 over the 2016 total of 323, and 711 misdemeanor and petty misdemeanor charges, up from 506 in 2016.

GSL Knowledge Bowl captures another state championship trophy

It may have been Friday the 13th with a major blizzard on the way, but that didn’t stop the Glencoe-Silver Lake Knowledge Bowl program from adding another state championship trophy to its collection.
The team had qualified for the State meet on March 17.
“It’s hard to keep practicing when there is a month between the regional and state meet,” said Coach Vicky Harris. All GSL’s team members are involved in spring activities, including baseball and the spring play.
