Red Cross launches new RapidPass for blood donors

The American Red Cross is launching RapidPass, a way for blood donors to complete their pre-reading and donation questions online from the privacy of their home or office.
RapidPass is only used to complete the reading and pre-donation questionnaire in advance of donors’ appointments at the Wednesday, Nov. 18, blood drive at the Glencoe City Center; it does not take the place of scheduling an appointment. The online process will hopefully reduce the time RapidPass donors spend at the blood drive by up to 15 minutes.

Panther boys' CC takes 12th at state meet

It wasn’t quite the day that the Glencoe-Silver Lake boys’ cross-country team had hoped for at the state Class A meet. However, a 12th-place finish on the back fields of St. Olaf College in Northfield was still satisfying enough in what it meant for this season and beyond.

“It wasn’t as good as our section performance and I think we could’ve had a better race,” coach Jeff Delwiche said. “But, it was a good experience in preparing our younger kids for next year.”
