County Board considers possible weapons, metal screening at courthouse

McLeod County received a citizen complaint regarding its courthouse security procedures, prompting a discussion at a County Board workshop Tuesday on whether it needed to install a weapons screening checkpoint at the entrance to the law enforcement center and courthouse.
Tim Langenfeld, chief deputy of the sheriff’s department, said that the estimated cost to install a fixed metal detector is a little less than $50,000. But, on top of that, the county would need to hire at least one civilian employee to man the detector. That person would be assisted by a licensed peace officer.

A quiet, but productive club

The Glencoe Sportsmen Club works hard as it continues to make its wildlife sanctuary at Oak Leaf Park a stop-worthy destination for visitors and Glencoe residents alike.
The Glencoe Sportsmen Club consists of a group of community members who manage and care for the animals in the sanctuary — all of which is solely funded by donations from the community.
The sanctuary, which is 32 acres in size, houses elk, deer, a variety of pheasants, peacocks and, in the summer, goat kids.
