Post 641 season comes to a close in playoffs

A pair of losses in the opening weekend of the sub-district tournament spelled the end of the season for the Plato Post 641 American Legion baseball team.
Plato was able to win its playoff opener against Minneapolis-based Giant Valley, but came up short against both LeSueur and Watertown in the following two contests as the summer campaign came to an end.
Behind starting pitcher Chandler Glaeser’s complete-game victory, Post 641 bested Giant Valley 2-1 on Friday, July 20, in Cannon Falls.

Blue Jays seize top spot for 7C playoffs

After peeling off 14 consecutive wins to finish off the regular season, the Plato Blue Jays can take some well-deserved time off as the top seed for the upcoming Region 7C Tournament.
With a 17-1 overall record, the Blue Jays comfortably claimed the top regional seed with a 3-1/2 game cushion over second-seeded Watertown.
Plato also won the Crow River Valley League South Division title by a full four games over Young America, which finished as the third regional seed and earning the final 7C first-round bye.

Changes coming to courthouse security

Starting Aug. 1, access to the McLeod County Courthouse in Glencoe will be limited to the new, main entry on the southeast corner of the building, which means doors leading to the courthouse on the north side, off 11th Street, will be locked and alarmed.
In conjunction with its jail expansion project, McLeod County also began security measures at the courthouse and other buildings, including secured entrances to department offices and the installation of security glass on access windows, among other measures. The most current step is to reduce the number of entry points to the courthouse.
