City gets state variance for Grove Avenue project
By Alyssa Schauer Staff Writer At its regular meeting Monday evening, Silver Lake City Council heard an update about the Grove Avenue reconstruction project, and found out a variance was approved by the state with no changes to the plan. City Clerk Kerry Venier said the city applied for a variance regarding the corner of Gehlen Drive and County State Aid Highway (CSAH 2). He said the northbound lane of CSAH 2 around the corner was “too sharp” for semi trucks and trailers according to state aid standards, and the options were to either apply for a variance or possibly buy that corner property and remove the house. “The variance was approved, and we will just have to remove a couple of trees on that corner. Also, the stop sign for the southbound traffic will come out,” Venier said. “What is the reason to take the stop sign out?” Councilor Eric Nelson asked. “It’s a state aid standard. The traffic on that road doesn’t warrant a stop sign,” Venier replied. Venier also updated City Council about the parking situation for Grove Avenue. The plans call for parking on the west side of Grove Avenue only from Highway 7 to Main Street, and to keep up with state aid standards, parking will be banned on both sides of CSAH 2 (Grove Avenue) from the centerline of Main Street 235 feet north. City Council passed a resolution approving these parking specifications to go in effect when construction on Grove Avenue begins. Venier also told City Council that the city is in the process of obtaining 10 easements and two temporary easements. “The temporary easements are construction easements and the 10 other easements are permanent,” Venier said. Final plans for the reconstruction project will be presented at the February council meeting. “We turned the project over to the county to get their review, and then it will be ready for our final approval, and we can then get bids,” Venier said. Nelson asked about the start date on the construction, and voiced his concern regarding the school traffic. “We will set a start date once the bids are received and picked. We will try to coordinate construction around the school as much as we can. “The tough part will be in the fall, trying to get the project done when school is back in session,” Venier said. Venier said after the February meeting and City Council’s final review of the project, bids will be sent, and after bids are received, a public hearing will be held to review costs and assessments. “I’m not sure if the assessments will be certified at that public hearing or after the project is done. I’ll find out for sure,” Venier said. In other matters, City Council: • Reviewed the public safety report and heard a meeting regarding school lockdowns and emergency plans was held at Lakeside Elementary. Nelson, the public safety liaison, Police Chief Forrest Henriksen and Mayor Bruce Bebo all attended the meeting, and said it was very “good and informative.” • Heard new officer John Reigstad completed the field training process, and has been working on his own. Henriksen reported that he and Reigstad attended the Silver Lake Business Expo and

Expo smiles
A very smiley crowd showed up for the annual Silver Lake Business Expo last Saturday at the auditorium. Guests perused vendor booths, enjoyed some food, and even stayed for the Phoenix Drumline entertainment and other seminars.

Archery ministry to begin Sunday
Members and friends of Grace Bible Church in Silver Lake will be starting another session of an archery ministry called Centershot. Centershot is a Bible-based archery ministry that consists of a 45-minute Bible study and 45 minutes of archery instruction one day a week for eight weeks. The activity is open for those ages 7 through adult. Individuals need not be a member of the church to participate in the program. The church provides the bows and arrows, which are used during the training sessions in the church basement shooting range. This has proven to be a fun activity for a parent and a child to do together. Participants pay a nominal fee to help cover the cost of the study book. The next session of Centershot will begin Sunday, Jan. 27, from 1 p.m. to 2:15 p.m. Those interested in finding out more are encouraged to contact the church office at 320327-2352, or visit www. centershotministries.org.

Hospice provides end-of-life service
By Lori Copler Staff Writer hen Julia Pavlish’s health began seriously failing, at the age of 91, she just wanted to be home — in the simple rural Lester Prairie home where she and her husband had raised their three children. Her daughter, Diane Zellmann, said her mother was taken to a hospital in early January 2012, suffering from an upper respiratory infection and congestive heart failure. Doctors told the family that Julia “wouldn’t make it through the weekend,” recalled Diane Zellmann. While her mother had suffered a natural decline in her health as she aged, she had continued to live on her own, helped by Zellmann, who lived right next door. Zellmann also is a home health aide. “I visited her every day,” said Zellmann. “We were always very close.” And Julia just wanted to be in that home as her life came to a close, and Zellmann wanted to make that wish a

Weather Corner
By Jake Yurek
We’ll remain cold this week, but the coldest of the cold should be out of the area by the time you read this. Temperatures will slowly migrate back up a bit as we move through the middle part of the week as the coldest pool of air is ushered off to our north and east. A weak storm will enter the picture Thursday and increase the chances of a few flakes of snow. There won’t be much moisture to work with, but the most recent model runs are bringing the storm closer to us, so that could mean a few snow showers as it goes by. Behind the system, temperatures will fall off again, having a tough time getting out of the single digits for highs Friday. The computers are all over the place after that, though, with some bringing in warmer weather for the weekend and some hanging onto the cold. I’m thinking we’ll improve slightly Saturday with perhaps a run into the 20s Sunday ahead of a warm surge of air. A storm could be brewing for the middle of next week, but I don’t trust the weekend forecast at this point, so I’ll punt. Fair warning: there is another pool of cold air as cold as the one we just got rid of building in northern Canada trying to inch its way towards us late next week. Hopefully, warmer weather prevails! Have a great week! Ma dobry weekendem Mit dobry vikend

Answer to last week’s question: Thin rainbows on both sides of the sun (typically on very cold days for us) are called sun dogs. This phenomenon occurs when tiny ice particles reflect sunlight in a way just like water droplets of a summer rainbow to create the tiny rainbows we see. The light is reflected and the colors of the spectrum are displayed. They occur all over the world in any conditions, but we generally see them the most here in winter. Remember: I make the forecast, not the weather!

Putting you in touch with the right business.
Zellmann told Oltmann about her mother’s wish to come home, “but I said, ‘how am I going to be able to do this? How can I take care of her?’” That is when Oltmann suggested ConnectCare. ConnectCare, which recently was assumed by Allina Health Home Care Services, helped provide Zellmann with the equipment she needed for her mother, including a hospital bed, and a lot of emotional and physical support. Zellmann said she had no clue about hospice, and was overwhelmed by how much the program did for her mother and herself. “They had skilled nurses come in and an RN managed all her medications,” said Zellmann. “We had wonderful home health aides who did all of her personal care.” When Zellmann, who quit her job to take care of her
mother, needed a break or had errands to run, a volunteer would come in to sit with Julia. And Chuck Thiel, of the local old-time band Chuck Thiel and the Jolly Ramblers, came and played his concertina for Julia. Julia had worked for the Alice Haney Nursing Home for several years, where she met Thiel, who came to play for the residents. And even when the ConnectCare staff was not at the home, Zellmann was welcome to call at any time to get advice or other help. And the staff often called Zellmann “just to see how I was doing.” The doctors’ original prediction that Julia would live only a few days proved to be false; she lasted several weeks after coming home from the hospital. “She actually rallied for a couple of weeks,” said Zell-
mann. In fact, she got well enough to chat with Thiel during his visits. ConnectCare provided service for the remaining six weeks of Julia’s life. “They were wonderful,” said Zellmann. “Toward the end, they got be like family. I can’t say enough good things about them.” Zellmann said she would recommend the hospice program to any “family that has a member that is failing or terminal. I think hospice is a wonderful program.” Allina Health Home Care Services, Hutchinson/Glencoe branch, serves residents in McLeod, Meeker, Renville, Carver, Wright and Sibley counties.

Fire completely destroyed the farm home of Will Vorlicek on the former Joe Witucki farm in Hale Township on Monday forenoon. The fire is thought to have started from the chimney. The Silver Lake Fire Department rushed to the scene of the fire, but had to confine efforts to saving nearby buildings as the house was a mass of flames when the truck arrived. The family is making their home temporarily at the Art Vorlciek home until other arrangements are made. It is not known whether a new house will be rebuilt on the place. The Silver Lake Legion, at a special meeting on Monday evening, decided to give as much help as possible to the Vorlicek family. A request is made to the people of Silver Lake and community to give as much as they are able in the line of food, clothing, bedding, household and cash. The Legion will see to it that all donations are properly taken care of. There are eight children, the youngest 2 years old, besides the parents.

that fatal vision goggles were used to show the effects of alcohol on vision and judgement at certain impairment levels. • Heard two individuals were arrested for DWIs this month. Henriksen gave an update for December, saying the state of Minnesota reported over 2,500 DWIs in December alone. • Conducted a six-month review for Henriksen and approved a motion to retain him with a step increase. • Reviewed the public works report to find the alarm dialer at the Silver Edge lift station needs to be replaced. Council approved the replacement of the dialer with an upgrade at a cost of $699. Johnson reported that Electronic Servicing in Silver Lake will assist with installing the dialer. • Discussed a letter received from Maguire Iron Inc. regarding the paint job of the water tower. Maguire Iron Inc. was hired to adjust and install insulation in the riser pipe of the water tower, and fire damage occurred during installation. In the letter, Richard Kemmis of Maguire Iron Inc. said they intend to come back in the spring to touch up the exterior paint where it was damaged from the fire. Kemmis noted that the touchup of paint was “due to the age of the existing paint, not be a perfect match,” and so he offered to discount the complete exterior painting of the tank by $4,000. The total cost to completely paint the water storage tank is $23,800. Council discussed this option, and before making a decision, asked Venier to contact Maguire Iron to “clear up some verbage in the contract” regarding fuel surcharges and other disclaimers. • Heard the planning commision met and is in the process of reviewing the city’s comprehensive plan. Councilor Carol Roquette reported that the commission will work on the plan over the next few months and will present recommendations when completed. • Approved a one-day liquor on-sale permit for the Silver Lake American Legion for Feb. 2. • Approved the one-day gambling application for the Silver Lake Fire Department relief for Feb. 26. • Approved the site agreement with Lutheran Social Services for use of the auditorium for senior dining.

Visit from Mom, got things done
So my tree is finally out of the apartment! Last Thursday, after procrastinating over cleaning my place before my mom’s threeday visit, I thought I should get my laundry picked up, the dishes done, the garbage out, and, of course, my Christmas tree down and to the shrub pile. It was a harder chore than I thought. I ended up putting on my good ol’ leather gardening gloves — stained with pine sap and tearing at the seams — in order to remove the two strings of Christmas lights and remaining ornaments. After watching boughs break off and needles upon needles pile up on the red fleece blanket I fashioned into a tree skirt, I decided it would be easier if I took my tree outside in pieces. So I ended up breaking off every branch and stuffing the boughs in a heavy-duty trash bag, and I took the bare, knobby tree trunk to Grandma Alice’s woodpile on the farm. Whew! After that adventure, and a few loads of laundry and a good Pine Sol scrub to the floors, my apartment was finally ready to welcome Mom. She is employed at HTI in Eau Claire, and she visits about every other month to do some work at the plant in Hutchinson. There’s nothing like having your mom around for a few days. The last couple of mornings I’ve awoken to my green tea pot whistling and the bustling noises of Mom closing cabinet doors and finding pots and pans. The sizzling sound of the frying pan and the smell of eggs lured me out of bed and into the kitchen, where Mom had a steaming plate of scrambled eggs with black forest

ham, cherry tomatoes, baby spinach and black beans waiting for me. And on Sunday, as I spent an hour or three cleaning out my closet, Mom kept me company as she prepared her homemade chicken wild rice soup, which she was so kind to leave a cup for me in the refrigerator for Monday’s lunch. Having three brothers and Dad of course didn’t leave much girl time for Mom and me at home. The TV was usually busy with football or Dad’s “Rockford Files” series, and our spring, summer and fall afternoons were often spent playing football, baseball, cutting and stacking wood, or cleaning out the garage. So naturally, when she visits now, the days are filled with shopping, “girl talk,” and watching sappy chick flicks with a box of Kleenex nearby. I look forward to her stay every quarter. It’s nice to have the company and, of course, a few days of hot breakfast waiting for you isn’t half bad either. I’m learning that no matter how old I get, I’ll always need my mom and dad — not only to finish my pile of dishes, or to help me get my taxes done, or to fix the muffler on my Jeep, but to be there to just listen and give advice when I need it. It’s funny how those awkward teenage years, when I was embarrassed by anything my Mom and Dad said and did, have grown into years of me hoping to be just like them some day — smart, unselfish, hardworking and always, always, always giving. I have big shoes to fill, and I welcome the challenge.

Ober tops at GSL for rebounds
By Lee Ostrom Sports Editor larissa Ober scored 22 points, hauled down 15 rebounds and blocked five shots in Glencoe-Silver Lake’s basketball assignment at New LondonSpicer last Tuesday — a 73-59 win for NLS, whose Taylor Thunstedt, a junior guard, tallied 50 points. Despite her team’s loss, Ober’s night was something special, too. With her fifth board, the 6foot-1 senior became GSL’s all-time leader for most rebounds in a career, passing Carolyn Busse’s previous list topper. Busse had 842 in her career; with another 15 in last Friday’s 53-36 setback at Orono, Ober has 868. That is with at least 12 games still to play, assuming she stays healthy. “She takes a lot of pride in her rebounding,” says GSL head coach — and dad — Cullen Ober. “The main thing is, she moves. She goes and gets that ball.” Ober will graduate being her school’s all-time leader in rebounds and blocked shots. Currently, she has 300 blocked shots, which are 162 more than anyone else. Wait! There could be more. Ober’s 1,263 career points rank second to Brittany Thiesfeld’s 1,446 on GSL’s list of all-time scoring leaders. If the future South Dakota State University Jackrabbit averages 15.3 points per game in GSL’s next 12 games she will move to the top of the list. She also is sixth on GSL’s all-time steals list, with 203 (leader Busse graduated with

After winning the championship game of their booster club’s holiday tournament, the GSL Panthers stood 6-2 for the 2012 part of their schedule. Robb DeCorsey’s boys were 50 on their home court. But so far, things have not gone as well in 2013. Last Tuesday at home, the Panthers dropped a Wright County Conference tussle with New London-Spicer. The Wildcats, trailing 63-55, scored the game’s last 10 points to pull out a 65-63 victory. Facing another WCC foe last Friday at home, the Panthers fell to Orono, 79-64. The next night, GSL lost 6764 in overtime at Faribault. Suddenly, GSL is 8-7 overall, with a 6-3 record at home and a 1-4 mark in their league, — Senior guard Ethan Maass scored the 1,000th point of his GSL career last Tuesday.

Hartwig, Clouse claim LCWM titles
By Kevin Simonson Special to The Leader Because of match count issues, the GSL/LP wrestlers were not at full strength when they headed south to Lake Crystal for the inaugural Lake Crystal Welcome Memorial Invitational (LCWM). The Panthers, who have been filling all 14 weights recently, only had 11 competitors for last Saturday’s meet. Missing from the lineup were regulars Jacob Jewett, Aaron Donnay, Brandon Richter, Nate Tesch and Ray Eberhard. Others were missing due to potential 9th-grade section and 9th-grade state meet matches. A wrestler can compete in only 36 matches before the section dual meet tournament. Of the 11 wrestlers competing in the LCWM tourney, seven of them placed with three advancing to the finals. Wrestling in the finals were Michael Donnay (120), Mitchell Hartwig (145) and Dalton Clouse (195). Winning titles were Hartwig and Clouse. The championship match at 145 was a dream matchup between two highly ranked wrestlers. Tanner Trembley from LCWM had not experienced defeat since he lost two matches in Glencoe on Dec. 15, 2011. His two losses that night were to Mitchell Hartwig from GSL/LP, 8-5, and Sam Brancale from Eden Prairie, 53. Brancale ended up winning the AAA state title at 126 while Trembley went on to win the Class A 132-pound state title. This championship match was 0-0 after one period with Trembley winning the flip for choice in the second. He chose the down position and is known for being a scrambler. But Hartwig was able to put him on his back for a two-point nearfall. After injury time, Trembley earned an escape, but Hartwig quickly scored a takedown to lead 4-1 going into the third period. Hartwig was given an escape late in the third to win this classic match 5-1. Hartwig advanced to the finals with a pin in the quarterfinals and a 4-0 decision in the semifinals. Clouse wrestled a total of 1:27 to earn his championship. After a first-round bye, he won by fall in the semifinals in :41; and in the finals, he pinned John Wittman from Chaska/ Chanhassen in :46. Finishing second for the Panthers was Michael Donnay. After receiving a bye in the quarterfinals, he faced Louie Sanders from LCWM. Sanders was ranked No. 2 in the state at 120 in Class A. After giving up the initial takedown early in the match, Donnay scored a reversal and two-point nearfall to lead 4-2 after the first period. Sanders scored an escape to start the second period and a quick takedown to lead 5-4. But he was unable to hold down Donnay, who earned a quick escape and his own takedown to lead 7-5 after two. Donnay scored an escape in the third to win 8-5. In the finals he dropped a 4-2 decision to the top seed Isaac Loosbrock from Chaska/Chanhassen. Loosbrock scored a takedown in the first and a reversal in the second. Donnay scored a two-point nearfall in the second prior to Loosbrock’s reversal. Neither wrestler scored in the third. Finishing in fourth place was John Williams (170) and taking fifth place honors was Dylan Melchert (138). Williams was 2-2 on the day and both losses were by two points each with his opponent scoring a takedown in the closing seconds. Melchert picked up his first ever varsity win in the fifth place match with a pin. Sixth place finishers were Chris Lemke (285) and Kyle Polzin (132). Not placing were Alex Mielke (126), Nick Jenkins (152), Martin Lezama (160) and Colton Lueders (182). Thursday night, GSL/LP wrestles Mound-Westonka for parents night and alumni night. Team totals from LCWM:
1.Lake Crystal Welcome Memorial 214.5; 2.Windom Area/Mountain Lake 201; 3.Chaska/Chanhassen 199. 4.Austin 142; 5.Montevideo 127.5; 6.Benilde St. Margaret 113.5. 7.Glencoe Silver Lake/LP 111.5; 8.Madelia/Truman/ Martin Luther 96.5; 9.LeSueur-Henderson 75.5; 10.Northwood- Kenesett 58.

Spray a 9x13-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. In a medium bowl, combine cake mix, frosting, eggs, oil and water. After mix is combined, stir in 1/2 cup chopped pecans. Pour batter into greased baking dish and bake for about 40 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. In a small pot over medium heat, melt 2 tablespoons butter.

County Board hires consultant to examine recycling program
By Lori Copler Staff Writer The McLeod County Board of Commissioners on Tuesday approved a not-to-exceed figure of $50,000 to have a consultant review the county’s recycling program. According to Commissioner Paul Wright, the consultant, SAIC, will study different options, including one-sort or two-sort recycling programs, and the equipment that may be needed at the county’s Materials Recovery Facility (MRF) to accommodate a different recycling program. Currently, the county offers a free, five-sort recycling program to residents in the community. But recently, the city of Glencoe has been considering a contract with Waste Management for a one-sort program, which has caused issues with the county’s program. It was reported Tuesday that the city of Winsted also is interested in a one-sort program, and has begun discussions with the county about a potential change in the county program. Wright said the county has used a five-sort system because it helps reduce the contamination between different products that are recycled by keeping them separated at the source, rather than having all of the recycled material taken in bulk and mixed to a facility, and then separating. “There is no single-sort that is as good as five-sort,” said Wright. “Our contamination rate will go up,” if the county goes to one- or two-sort, said Commissioner Sheldon Nies. But city officials in Glencoe and others contend that recycling will increase if people do not have to pre-sort the material. Wright said he prefers an outside consultant look at the recycling program because a change may require a significant investment in equipment, or even a building expansion, at MRF. “We may have to put a lot of money into the facility,” said Wright. “And we want to make sure we do it right.” Wright also said that the study and any resulting equipment or facility changes will be paid for through solid waste funds, and not from the general levy. In related business, Commissioner Kermit Terlinden asked about adding additional recycling bins in Glencoe, perhaps in one of the courthouse parking lots or at some countyowned land at the west edge of the city. Terlinden said city of Glencoe officials had shown county officials photos of the overflowing recycling bin at the current site, located near the railroad on the east side of town. Terlinden said the overflowing bins were proof that people are trying to recycle. Nies said the MRF committee has been discussing that issue, and agreed to add another day a week to pick up cardboard at the site, which seems to be the biggest issue. Nies also said that the current Glencoe drop-off site needs to be relocated because it is partially located on railroad property, and because there has been at least one accident there. In other business, the County Board: • Held an hour-long closed session to hear an appeal of a disciplinary action that had been taken against an employee. After the meeting reopened, Nies said a statement will be made about the matter after the appeals process is fully gone through. • Agreed to buy a Caterpillar front-end loader at the state contract price of $188,164, which Highway Maintenance Superintendent Elvis Voigt said will replace two older loaders.

CRAYO seeks area musicians for spring
The Crow River Area Youth Orchestra is seeking area musicians for its second semester. There are two opportunities for musicians. The Symphonic Orchestra is for string students and adults who feel comfortable reading at a more advanced level — end of Suzuki Book 3 on up and band students from an eighth-grade level on up. Instruments desired for this group are violins, violas, cellos, string basses, flutes, clarinets, oboes, bassoons, saxophones, trumpets, French horns, trombones, baritones, tuba and percussion. The group is directed by Michael Zellgert. The Varsity Strings ensemble is for string students and adults who feel comfortable reading at a late beginning to early intermediate level — Suzuki books 1 through 3. Instruments desired include violins, violas, cellos and string bass. This group is directed by Rhonda Johnson. Both groups will meet on Sunday afternoons at Hutchinson Middle School. The Varsity Strings will meet from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. in the choir room and the Symphonic Orchestra will meet from 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. in the band room. The first rehearsal for both will be Feb. 3. The concert is set for April 21. For more information or to register, call Sherri Brigden at 320-296-5704 or visit www.crayo.org. Those interested will be able to listen to the pieces selected for the concert on the website. The Crow River Youth Orchestra can also be found on Facebook.

Matt and Melissa McCalley of Lester Prairie are proud to announce the birth of their daughter, Maria Sofia, on Jan. 7, 2013. Maria weighed 8 pounds, 3 ounces, and was 19-1/2 inches in length.

‘Medea’ is GSL’s one-act play; free performance set Jan. 24
The dates and times for Glencoe-Silver Lake High School’s one-act play have been set. Director Patrick Hiltner and his cast and crew will present the play “Medea” by Nelly E. Cuellar-Garcia, based on the play by Euripides, at a public performance at 7 p.m., Thursday, Jan. 24. This performance is open and free to the public. On Saturday, Jan. 26, Jordan High School will host the subsection one-act play competition. There will be six schools competing, with GSL performing at 1:30 p.m. The play is the classic Greek drama set in ancient Greek times. Deaf to the warnings of her nurse and chorus, griefstricken Medea seeks solace in destroying Jason, her unfaithful husband. This is a condensed adaptation of the classic tragedy that explores Medea’s disjointed psyche within the context of ancient Greek values. The cast members include Mariah Guldemann-Chiarillo as Medea; John Seipel as Jason; Amber Drong as the nurse; Ben Rockswold as Aegeus; Stephanie Welch as Glauce; Stephanie Chastek, Kayla Williams-Schwarze, Sloan Becker and Lili Mallak as Medea’s chorus; Samantha Iverson, Jennifer Jacques, Rachel Bonderman and Leah Peterson as the Greek chrous; and Richard Wilson and Quinten Proehl as the soldiers.

GSL Knowledge Bowl teams all earn medals; JV squad wins at Dawson-Boyd
In the third meet for Glencoe-Silver Lake High School teams since the beginning of January (and the fifth meet for junior high students), GSL’s Knowledge Bowl teams traveled to Dawson for an invitational on Saturday. GSL teams at all levels earned medals. “When 12 to 15 schools attend an invitational, this is a relatively unusual accomplishment, and this is the third time (out of four three-level meets) this year that we have had this level of success,” said GSL coach Vicky Harris. “With a rare weekend break coming up next weekend, this was exciting for us.” Harris said the varsity competition included 20 teams from 12 schools, and Willmar won with a score of 106, while Hutchinson took second with 105. GSL’s top team lagged behind the top two, but placed third with 94.5 points. GSL’s second team tied New London-Spicer for fourth with 91 points. While GSL had the highest score in Room 1 two times, the Panthers could not accumulate enough points to move up in the standings. GSL 1 included Joe Fehrenbach, Ethan Bass, Mark Broderius and Chandler Swift. GSL 2 competed for the whole meet in Room 2, and had one high score of 16, but otherwise suffered the same problem as GSL 1 – it just didn’t have enough oomph to move up farther, Harris said. This team included Lindsey Becker, Kyle Beck, Oakley Clark, Patrick Fehrenbach and Jacob Wawrzyniak. The junior varsity meet had 13 teams from nine schools. GSL’s only team started in Room 2, but earned 20 points in the first oral round. It moved into first place where it stayed for the rest of the meet. GSL’s final score was 94.5 points. ACGC was second with 89, while Willmar Community Christian ended in third with 73 points. The GSL team members were Cody Wendorff, Cedric Winter, Mitch Beneke and Maddie Kuehn. GSL had three teams in the 22-team junior high competition. Thirteen schools were represented. GSL’s first team started in Room 2, dropped briefly to Room 3 in the third round, and came back up to Room 2. In the final rounds the team earned 22 and 14 points and got just high enough to earn third place, Harris said. The junior high meet was won by Willmar with 120, and Ortonville took second with 106. GSL 1 finished with 108.5. This team included Maggie Petersen, Rachel Reichow, Dini Schweikert and Katie Twiss. GSL 3 started lower in Room 4, but by round three, the team was competing well in Room 1. In fact, GSL 3 won Room 1 in round 3, 17-16-14. Round four wasn’t as kind, and GSL 3 lost 15-13-9. GSL 3 ended the meet in fourth place, still an excellent placing, with 106 points, Harris said. The team members were Jenna Lokensgard, Lindsay Wedin, Jake Fehrenbach and Theresa Siers. GSL 2 started in Room 5 and during the rest of the meet competed in Rooms 2 and 3. GSL 2 finished in ninth place with 94 points, still in the top half of the meet. The team was Connor Heuer, Cora Kuras, Marisa Luchsinger, Jake Vasek and Jack Gepson. Next weekend there are no Knowledge Bowl meets in the region, but on the first Saturday in February, GSL will be traveling to Little Falls for the “Lucky Lindy Invitational.” Harris said both students and coaches enjoy the Little Falls meet because there is excellent competition from other parts of the state, often including Brainerd, Moorhead, and many good teams from the metro area. Also coaching the GSL Knowledge Bowl teams with Harris is Clare Nolan.
