When she arrived on campus in Bemidji, Zoe Christensen was confident in her athletic abilities. Still, there was plenty to learn.
Today, as a Bemidji State sophomore and the granddaughter of Glencoe’s Phyllis Christensen, Christensen has learned plenty, both in the classroom and as a member of the BSU womens’ track and field team. She recently earned acclaim for two first-place performances at a meet at St. Scholastica. The GSL alum won the weight throw and the shot put.

The Glencoe-Silver Lake girls’ basketball team sent the St. James Saints marchin’ to the other side of the bracket as the Panthers put on a dominant performance against a non-conference foe in the GSL Booster’s holiday tournament Friday, Dec. 27.

They had planned to get a little more work in during the holiday break.

Much had changed in the 50-plus years between those two days. Yet Craig Miller was again in downtown Glencoe, and this time he was giving his time to make it a better place a little bit at a time.
Miller, 62, is remembered this week. He passed away Sunday, Dec. 22, almost three months to the day after suffering a devastating stroke.

GSL wants to improve its vo-tech offerings

Through seemingly no fault of his own, Mid-Minnesota Builders' co-owner Kenny Grimm hopes the telephone will ring with an applicant willing to work in the construction industry. He’s been waiting too long for his liking.
Employers like Grimm and Adam Revier of Revier Welding of Glencoe need employees to enter the trades and take skilled jobs that will allow their companies to meet the demands of customers and grow. But without enough employees to fill open spots, the companies are unable to grow.

Like him or not – Our view: Rep. Peterson voted his conscience

Last week, we read U.S. Rep. Collin Peterson voted against approving the articles of impeachment involving President Donald Trump’s alleged abuse of presidential power by using the presidential power to supposedly coerce Ukraine into investigating a political rival of the president’s and then obstruct a Congressional inquiry into whether President Trump committed impeachable acts.

Are we keeping our American democracy healthy?

Representative democracy is based on a simple premise. It’s that ordinary citizens can make satisfactory judgments on complex public policy and political issues — or at least grasp them well enough to decide who should be dealing with them.
But the significance of that premise isn’t simple at all. It means that our country’s future depends on the quality of democratic participation by its citizens. Collectively, we have to make discriminating judgments about politicians, policies, and issues. Not just once, but repeatedly and consistently.
