Worthington native Andy Ypma, 67, came to McLeod County in 1974 “knowing no one, but I’m leaving with a wealth of relationships and friends.” Ypma retired July 9 as a probation officer after 45 years on the job – all in McLeod County. “I loved working here,” Ypma said. “I’m grateful that I only made the front page once (for an award). I avoided the press. I didn’t want to be the focal point of...

Glencoe is not a destination city. We don’t have a lake. We don’t have many tourist attractions. We don’t have a lot here that would make a driver pull off the highway and spend the day. We do have, however, a lot of history. Glencoe is an old community dating back before Minnesota was even a state. But as we continue to tear down old buildings...
