Grove Avenue construction tentatively to begin April 29
By Alyssa Schauer Staff Writer Construction on Grove Avenue is tentatively set to begin April 29. Engineer John Rodeberg of Short Elliott Hendrickson, Inc., (SEH) met with the Silver Lake City Council at its regular meeting Monday for an update on the project. “R&R Excavating will be coordinating with the underground utilities first, to get that work done. They want to be done with the underground utility work by June 1,” Rodeberg said. He said R&R Excavating has other work lined up, so it will be working “very hard and fast” to complete Grove Avenue. Rodeberg said the contractor also has met with the school district, and the contractor has agreed to allow school buses to continue to use the route along Grove instead of a detour. “But we let the teachers know that just because the buses are using that route, doesn’t mean they can. They will still need to use the detour,” Rodeberg said. “When are they doing County Road 2? Will the buses still be able to come into town on that road?” Mayor Bruce Bebo asked. “The same contractor is doing both, so they will continue to work with the buses until the end of the school year. The full detour will begin April 29,” Rodeberg said. “Just a reminder, this is going to be a huge inconvenience. There is no way to avoid it,” City Clerk Kerry Venier said. The Council discussed the detour and Councilor Eric Nelson asked about turning the one-way street into a temporary two-way route. “It would be less of an inconvenience,” Nelson said. “We are reconstructing that corner, too, and the way we are doing that makes it difficult to make it a two-way street. People shouldn’t be coming into town from the south. They will have to use the detour,” Venier said. Nelson said he thought a two-way street had been discussed earlier, and asked when that had changed. “I think we talked about it really early in the project,” Rodeberg said. “But that was before the County decided to do County Road 2,” Bebo added. Venier said the county decided the set detour route. **** The Council also reviewed bids for hydrant replacements, and awarded the contract to Juul Contracting Co. of Hutchinson for a cost of $138,887.50. “A total of nine bids were received for this project, and ranged from a high $272,090.99 to a low $138,887.50. Our estimate was $153,972.50. “We find no reason to deny awarding the contract to Juul. They have done satisfactory work with SEH previously,” Rodeberg said. Bebo agreed and said Juul has done “good work” with the city before. After approving the bid for hydrant replacement, the Council reviewed financing options for the project. Venier presented the Coun-

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas...
Though we are midway through April and into what is supposed to be the “spring” season, Mother Nature had other plans and decided to dump 11.6 inches of heavy, wet snow in the area last Thusday early morning. Lynn Monger and Duane Yurek work together to remove the Christmas-y decor from the sidewalk and driveway. Sadly, more snow is forecasted for the weekend. But, what else can we expect from Minnesota weather?

Being state champions has a nice ring to it, and members of the GSL Knowledge Bowl team had an opportunity to revel in the accomplishment Monday when a pep rally was held on their behalf. The team won the state Class A Knowledge Bowl title last weekend at Brainerd, the sec-
ond such title for GSL since 2007. Team members included, from left, Coach Vicky Harris, Chandler Swift, Ethan Bass, Joe Fehrenbach, Patrick Fehrenbach, Mark Broderius and assistant coach Clare Nolan.
State champions
The Glencoe-Silver Lake Knowledge Bowl team of Joe and Patrick Fehrenbach, Chandler Swift, Ethan Bass and Mark Broderius, captured the state Class A Knowledge Bowl title at Cragun’s Resort in Brainerd. The victory came despite the inclement weather, according to GSL Coach Vicky Harris. “As you all know, the weather on April 11-12 was not much like spring! But this was when the Knowledge Bowl State meet was scheduled,” Harris said. On Wednesday, the state coordinator decided the meet was still on, and suggested that teams come a day early. So Wednesday at 7 p.m., the team left the GSL area to head up to Brainerd, Harris said. GSL’s competition in Class A included 22 teams from all around the state, both public and private, including Aitkin, Albany, Bagley, Blue Earth Area, Chatfield, Cook County, Crookston, Fillmore Central, Hillcrest Academy, International Falls, Lake of the Woods, Minnesota Valley Lutheran, Morris, Mountain Lake, Murray County Central, Park Christian, Pelican Rapids, St. John’s Prep, St. Peter, Virginia, Wadena-Deer Creek and Win-E-Mac. (Duluth Marshall also was scheduled to compete, but didn’t make it because of the weather.) GSL had “qualified for state by winning the Region 6 competition, but all of these schools had also placed high in their regions, so there really was almost no way to predict how we would do,” Harris said. “We felt that we were a strong team, and that we should be able to finish near the top if things went well, but we could not be sure. “Thursday was an interesting day. While we would have loved to start the competition, many teams had been unable to start early and were stranded in their home districts by the snow. We were forced to pass the time by playing pool, ping-pong and basketball,” Harris said. “However, by late after-

noon, enough other teams had come to make it clear that the meet actually would happen, and there was a schedule to follow,” Harris added. The teams all took the 60point written round on Thursday evening, except the teams who were not there yet — they took it later. Until all schools had a chance to complete the written round, the scores weren’t posted, “so we didn’t know until a little after 10 o’clock on Friday morning that our written score of 50 put us in first place to start the meet,” Harris said. Oral competition began
On Sunday, May 12, Mother’s Day, the family of Mileka Hall, will host the second-annual “Mileka’s Run,” a 5K run/walk, starting at Legion Park in Silver Lake.

runs. She was my cheering section,” JoAnna Hall said. The event begins with a one-mile kids’ run at 10:30 a.m. Sunday, May 12, with the 5K run starting at 11 a.m. and the walk beginning at 11:05 a.m. The cost of the kids’ run is $10 and the 5K race is $20.

Very motivated
Craig Hillier, left, brought his high-energy approach to Glencoe-Silver Lake High School Friday as part of a program stressing the important of resilience, respect and responsibility. His entertaining style of fast-paced humor, gestures and audience participation kept the junior and senior high students engaged. Above, Hillier opened his presentation by asking music trivia questions and going into the audience to present prizes for the right answers. Dylan Schuth won for his answer. Hillier’s presentation was sponsored by the Methamphetamine Education and Drug Awareness (MEADA) program, according to Joe Morcomb, Lincoln Jr. High School counselor, who coordinated the event. Morcomb said Hillier “incorporates a visual and some social emotional learning on taking responsibility with topics such as peer pressure and drug/alcohol use.”

cil with two debt schedules reflecting the following: the $247,423.18 of the project that is to be assessed to abutting property owners that will be specially assessed over 15 years at 4 percent interest and the $35,000 that will come from the water fund annually. The first debt schedule shows no cash contribution and the bond issue at $1,070,000. The second debt schedule shows a $135,000 cash contribution from the water fund and a bond issue of $935,000. Venier said the resulting change in the tax levy over the life of the bonds would result in a net savings of $39,812. “I think we’d be more than safe to make that $135,000 contribution from the water fund. It would leave us with a healthy balance of $265,000. Any repairs that would be over $200,000 in the water fund would probably cause us to bond,” Venier said. “By doing this, would we still push to raise the water rates?” Nelson asked. “Yes,” Venier said. “I don’t know how people are going to afford that,” Nelson said. He discussed his own rising water bill, and felt that people will feel the same about rising rates. Venier said the city of Silver Lake is one of the cities in McLeod County with a low water rate, and that the city would have to increase water rates to keep a healthy fund balance. On a 4-0 vote, the Council approved to issue a bond of $935,000 with a $135,000 cash contribution from the water fund to pay for the hydrant replacement and water meter replacement projects.

Another embarassing fishing story
One of my biggest fears this spring is that I’ll have to sit in an ice house during the Minnesota fishing opener weekend. I think we can all agree that is a legitimate concern. By now, I’m sure most of you realize how much I love fishing, so, of course, it will be no surprise to you that I spent last Sunday afternoon learning how to tie flies for fly fishing, an outdoor class at Grace Bible Church taught by Al Teubert and Eric Nelson. I think these classes are as close to the outdoors as I will get for awhile, unless we are blessed with a heat wave within the next couple of weeks — I’ll keep praying for it! As I sat back and listened to Al describe the perfect fishing scenario — a warm sunny day along the shore of a bubbling river beneath large, green canopies of tall trees, loud with talkative birds and buzzing insects — I couldn’t help but drift off into dreamland and reminisce about one of my favorite fishing spots in Winona. Actually, I think I was so nostalgic on Sunday because I had just spent the weekend there for a wedding. Because Winona is three hours away, I don’t get there too often, so I welcomed the trip with open arms. My friend Sarah and I headed to our old stomping grounds for the wedding, but of course we made time to visit all our favorite shops we loved while going to college there, including Bloedow’s Bakery, voted best donut shop in Minnesota in 2012. It was a nice weekend down memory lane, as we drove

about 10:45 a.m. In round one, GSL competed against Mountain Lake and Cook County, which had tied for second on the written with 48 points each. “This was our easiest round in some respects,” Harris said. “Although Mountain Lake and Cook County had good writtens, our team was much faster and outscored them 16-8-7. This was in spite of some questions that we missed because we gave too much information, so we could have done better.” Meanwhile, two teams from rooms three and five also had done really well, so while GSL was still in first, “we were now only one point ahead of Pelican Rapids, and four points ahead of St. Peter.” Round two seemed to have the hardest questions of the meet, Harris said. Scores were very close, with GSL and St. Peter earning 11 points, while Pelican Rapids earned six. In the meantime, St. John’s Prep had earned 15 points in Room 2. GSL was still in first place, but only one point ahead of St. John’s, and four points ahead of St. Peter. “This was not a particularly good round for us, as St. John’s earned 14 points while we earned 11,” Harris said. (St. Peter earned six). “The faces of the team were a little grim after this round,” Harris added. In the few minutes between rounds, “we tried to regroup by eating almonds and telling bad jokes, and headed into the final round tied for second place with Pelican Rapids, two points behind St. John’s Prep, which had 90 points.” The state meet is usually five oral rounds, but because of the weather it had been cut to four. Crookston and Bagley were in fourth and fifth places with 86 and 85, “so really anything could happen,” Harris said. “The only really good description of what happened in round four was that GSL was smoking! Perhaps almonds really are performance-enhancing drugs, or the questions were written just for us, although we don’t know either of those things to be true,” Harris said. In the first 15 questions of round four, GSL scored 10, St. John’s Prep earned two, and Pelican Rapids got zero. Harris said St. John’s Prep members “lost their sense of timing, and missed a lot of questions because they were trying to beat us to an answer. Our team just kept getting answers, remembering what they knew and hitting the timing just right. It was a fun round to watch, if you were a spectator from GSL,” Harris said. “Even when we missed questions, things were going our way. For instance, GSL buzzed a little too early on a question, which began ‘Harry Longabaugh got his nickname’ (Buzz). GSL answered ‘Sundance Kid.’ It was his nickname, but not the answer to the question. The other two teams heard the whole question: ‘Harry Longabaugh got his nickname from stealing a horse in what town?’ The answer was ‘Sundance,’ but neither of the other teams got it correct, even though GSL had all but given away the information.” By the 13th question, GSL’s lead had lengthened to 17-6-3, and a student from Pelican Rapids suggested that GSL could let up a little and let them have a few points, Harris said. But the fun continued until the end of the round, she added, with GSL earning 21, while St. John’s Prep had 12 and Pelican Rapids had four. “We were pretty sure that unless something remarkable had happened in another room, we had won the meet, and we were right,” Harris said. The top three teams at the Minnesota Class A tournament were GSL (115 points), St. John’s Prep (107) and Bagley (102). The Class AA (large school) tournament was going on at the same time. That was won by Spring Lake Park with 121.5 points, followed by Chaska with 119 and Buffalo with 108.5. Hutchinson finished tied for seventh in AA with 99.5, while Willmar ended with 97 in 12th place. “The fabulous champions from GSL — Joe Fehrenbach (senior), Ethan Bass (junior), and sophomores Mark Broderius, Patrick Fehrenbach, and Chandler Swift — was the only team that stayed in Room 1 for the entire meet,” Harris said. GSL had won two rounds outright, and only lost one round. “One coordinator commented that it is very uncommon to have scores over 20 at the state meet, but our team did,” Harris said. “GSL can be really proud of these students who have worked hard all year at getting better and better at their game. The hours of practice have paid off,” Harris said. “We have now joined the small list of teams who have won the state meet more than once. GSL’s 2007 team also won the state class A competition,” Harris said. “We are extremely grateful to all the people who have helped Knowledge Bowl teams along the way. Next year will be our 20th year, and we would not have been state champions twice in that time without a lot of support!” Harris added.
The Travel Section
By Alyssa Schauer
into bluff country along the Mississippi River, and enjoyed the familiar view of “Sugar Loaf,” the rocky landmark overlooking Winona, a couple of turkey hoagies at Acoustic Cafe, and catching up with old friends. We drove past the old dingy apartment where a group of our guy friends stayed, and I had to let out a laugh as I thought about all the trouble I used to get into there. We’ll save some of those stories for later. One of the guys, Brian, was like an older brother, and we used to go fishing and hiking all around Winona. I’d walk over there, donned in flannel, khaki shorts, and hiking sandals, ready for adventure. My favorite memory had to be when we headed to the small lake in Winona on a warm day to catch some sunnies. I headed up the creaky stairs with my fishing pole and school bag filled with bait, tackle, and trail mix, to pick up Brian, and the first thing he says to me: “Al, don’t put this on Facebook or anything. Meghan always asks me to take her fishing and I never do.” Meghan was his girlfriend (now wife), and he said she never liked putting slimy worms on the hooks or taking off any caught fish. “I don’t want to deal with that,” he said very seriously. It was a proud moment for me, because he knew I was a true fisher(woman). That is, until we got to the lake and I embarassed myself with my first catch. We were standing in the warm water along the sandy shore of the lake, when I made an unfortunate cast and caught the end of the large oak branch hanging over the lake. “Go get it,” Brian laughed. “It’s not that deep.” He was wrong. I grabbed onto the low hanging branch for support and started to wade in the water to detach my hook from the leafy branch, careful to not get my clothes soaking wet, before I stepped into a hole and stumbled into the lake. Splash! “Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha,” was all I heard when I looked back at Brian with a watery glare. I managed to get the hook out of the tree, my only catch of the day, and of course the embarassment continued when I returned to Brian’s house and all of his roommates stared at my dripping shorts. I made a vow to fish away from low-hanging trees. And I think I’ll invest in a pair of waders. Ah, Spring. Won’t you come soon?

Letter to the Editor Things bright at GSL despite the weather
To the Editor: We are in the third full week of April and you would think it was February. While the weather certainly seems to dim our spirits, the activity and success at GSL makes things look much brighter. For starters, we have another state championship team at GSL. Our Knowledge Bowl team is the 2013 Class A State Champion! What an amazing accomplishment and something we all can be very proud of. Congratulations to the entire team! Another positive for the school district is that FOX 9, KMSP TV, has announced its finalists for its Top Teacher Award and we are proud to have Randi Erlandson nominated this year. Mrs. Erlandson, who teaches high school music and choir, represents all of our wonderful staff at GSL as she goes for this award. You can cast your vote at facebook.com/fox9kmsp or on its website at www.myfoxtwincities.com/. Best of luck, Mrs. Erlandson! Currently, many of our students across several grade levels are taking the MCA tests. It is our hope that the results will show the improvements our school has been making over the past several years. These tests results, along with several other factors, will show that we are continuing to improve our school. This neverending improvement process at GSL is something that is always happening and a value that we teach our students daily. I am proud of the efforts that our staff and students have shown. GSL is a great school and is only getting better! Christopher D. Sonju Superintendent of Schools

Kitchen Delights & Other Things
Breakfast Burritos Ingredients: 6 large flour tortillas 2 small smoked chorizo sausages, chopped 10 large eggs, lightly beaten 8 ounces Monterey Jack cheese, grated 1/3 cup black bean and corn salsa Hot sauce (optional) Directions: Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Lay the tortillas on a baking sheet. Place in the oven for 1 minute. Fry the chorizo in a hot pan for 1 minutes, then add the eggs and scramble. Meanwhile, sprinkle cheese over each tortilla. Return the tortillas to the oven and allow the cheese to melt, about 1 minutes. Remove from oven. Divide the eggs and sausage evenly among the tortillas, piling the eggs and sausage in the center. Top each one with a tablespoon of salsa and drizzle with hot sauce, if desired. One at a time, fold the bottom edge of each tortilla up and over the eggs and sausage, fold in each side edge to form an open pocket, then fold down that edge. Taco Ziti Casserole Ingredients: 3/4 bag ziti noodles 1 pound ground beef 1 package taco seasoning 1 cup water 1/2 package cream cheese 1-1/2 cup shredded cheese Directions: Boil pasta until just cooked. Brown ground beef, drain. Mix taco seasoning and one cup water with ground beef for five minutes. Add cream cheese to beef mixture, stirring until melted. Remove from heat. Pour pasta in a casserole dish, and mix in one cup shredded cheese. Top pasta with beef mixture and gently mix. Top with remaining cheese. Bake at 350 degrees uncovered for 15 to 20 minutes. Oatmeal Cake and Coconut Pecan Frosting Ingredients: Cake: 1/2 cup quick cooking oatmeal 3/4 cups boiling water 1/2 cup sugar 1/2 cup brown sugar 2/3 cups flour 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon baking soda 1 egg 1/4 cup shortening Frosting: 3 tablespoons melted butter 1/3 cup brown sugar 1/2 cup sweetened shredded coconut 1/2 cup chopped nuts 2 tablespoons milk 1/2 teaspoon vanilla Directions: For the cake, mix the oatmeal with the boiling water, stir and cover.

Boys’ golf team aims for middle of the WCC
By Josh Randt Sports Editor The Panther boys’ golf team will have some fresh faces teeing off this year. Head coach Chad Koenen sees some potential in this year’s team and hopes to have a better showing this season. “The last couple of years we’ve been at the bottom of the conference, but we’re trying to improve this year,” Koenen said. “Last year, we came in last, but we’re working at it. We weren’t that far off from second to last, and we started making some great gains at the tail end of the season.” Koenen is optimistic about this year’s team despite previous seasons and a tough conference schedule. “If we have a really great season, we can be in the middle of the pack,” the coach said. “We’re in a very good conference, but I like that. I like the challenge, and I know our boys do, too.” Attaining that goal is always the challenge. While all spring sports have been locked indoors with the weather as of late, the boys’ golf team has been competing with each other for varsity spots. “Every day everybody is competing for those (varsity) positions,” Koenen said. “Just because you were varsity last year doesn’t mean you are this year. You have to earn it and keep it.” Earning those varsity spots are Joe Fehrenbach (12), Lou Iacona (11), Eric Steffel (11), Tate Lilienthal (10), Patrick Fehrenbach (10) and Dylan Schuth (9). Trevor Posusta (9) could see time on varsity as an alternate as well. Joe Fehrenbach, Iacona and Lilienthal all saw time as varsity golfers last season. Koenen said he expects them to mentor the younger, less experienced golfers, and shoot some good rounds for the team. “Lou was five strokes away from making it to the state tournament last year, and we’ll be looking for him to get himself into the realm of the state tournament this year,” Koenen said. “Joe started last season strong and we’ll look for him to stay consistent this year. Tate was a freshmen last year and he came on strong. Now that he’s got that experience we’ll look for him to play well.” The other three will have to be baptized by fire when the season finally gets underway, since it will probably be the first time they swing a club outdoors this season. “The other three guys will grow as we go,” Koenen said. “I want to see how they handle themselves with the next level of competition. I believe they’re ready. I wouldn’t put them there if I didn’t.” With those positions filled, the team agreed that in order to finish in the middle of the pack, it will take team efforts as well as individual ones. “I think we’ve got good prospects. We’re young but we’re returning myself, Joe and Tate,” Iacona said. “I think it’ll be a really good season for all of us. We just need to stay in a good mindset and not let other things distract us. It’s also about the team, not just yourself.” “Our team looks young and we have room for improvement,” Joe Fehrenbach said. “We’re mostly going to focus on growth and everyone just trying to do their best and shooting some good scores. We’d also like to improve on our last place standing from last year.” “I think the keys to success will be finding our own identity as a team and working on their game individually. And also just playing straight golf,” Koenen said. “It’s also controlling yourself, because you can’t control other things around you, and course management. You know, how you deal with a bad shot and come back.” Correcting a mistake is difficult in any sport, but in a highly mental game like golf, Koenen said the key is confidence. “That’s (confidence) the main thing, and I expect my three leaders to show that and have it rub off on the younger guys. These guys are going to have to deal with some adversity ... this game can play with your mind. Sometimes you have to get back to the basics, and they know that. It’s just doing it.” An extended indoor season does not offer many advantages to any outdoor sport, but one aspect that Koenen said has him optimistic is the amount of time the younger golfers have spent with the older ones. “Once the season gets started these guys are going to be all over the place,” the coach said. “The nice thing about all these indoor practices is that the younger golfers get to work with the leaders on the team.” While a lengthy indoor season is not something he counts on every year, Koenen does expect upperclassmen leadership every year. This year is no different, and the coach seems confident of all of his golfers. “I expect them to explain the holes, help them visualize and just take them under their wing and mentor them,” Koenen said. “They’ve got a lot on their plate, but that comes with the territory. They were brought up that way, and now it’s their turn ... I have confidence in all of them, but I also have high expectations.”

The two returning starters from last year’s softball team: Courtney Lemke and Stephanie Klockmann.
Softball team faces rebuilding season
By Josh Randt Sports Editor Coaches at every level have to deal with replacing talent and rebuilding seasons. Head softball coach Steve Davis is facing one such season. “We’re very inexperienced,” Davis said. “We had three girls returning from last year, but one got hurt so now we’re down to two. The other seven girls will be brand new to varsity.” At least one of those two players will be able to take the mound for the Panthers. Senior Courtney Lemke is a four-year starter and will be an integral part of this team, Davis said. Lemke batted close to .500 last season, and also will see some time at shortstop when she is not on the mound. Stephanie Klockmann will be counted on all over the field in her junior year. Klockmann will rotate at shortstop, third base and the outfield, while trying to improve upon a batting average in the high .400s from last season. The team is young, but Davis likes what he sees in some of his raw talent pool. “Becca Green (10) will do the catching. She’s very fundamentally solid,” Davis said. “Morgan Streich (10) and Laura Becker (11) will be playing first base ... Josie Schmitt (10) will be at second base and Ellie Lepel (10) will be at third.” A young infield will be backed by an equally aged outfield. Sophomores Rachel Rusten and Piper Davis will patrol the grass for the Panthers, and look to make a difference at the plate as well. “Rachel Rusten has done a very good job in the outfield and in the batting cages so far,” Davis said. “Piper Davis is a strong hitter who can drive the ball. She will be an up-andcoming hitter for us.” Davis said he is confident the girls will improve their hitting as the season goes along, as a lot of them will have to get used to the speed of varsity pitches. His main focus is keeping opponents’ runs off the scoreboard. “If we pitch well and play defense, we’ll be all right,” Davis said. “If we walk girls, or make errors, we’ll have some long games. The runs will come. But being solid on the mound and behind the pitcher is number one.” With the lack of experience on this year’s team, Davis said his goal for the season is developing players. “It’s (this year’s goals) more about improving, making ourselves better and being the best that we can be,” Davis said emphatically. “Hopefully, by the end of the year we’re peaking, too, so we can win some playoff games. We haven’t done that in a while.” It may be the best time to be fielding a developing team like Davis’. The Wright County Conference is split into two divisions this year, East and West, which may give the Panthers a bit of a learning curve. The Panthers are in the West division, “which is good,” Davis said. “Everybody’s very good. Annandale should be the favorite, but the other teams are not underdogs either.” The Panthers will play each team in its division twice, and face off against each team in the opposite division once. Of course, the weather has to cooperate first. “We’re starting to get a little frustrated,” Davis said. “We’ve snuck outside for two days. Otherwise we’ve been stuck inside doing the same things over and over ... But, the other teams around here are experiencing the same thing.” When the snow clears and the ground settles, the Panthers softball team will start the tedious task of rebuilding. But you reap what you sew, and the harvest for years to come looks abundant. “Our strength is our younger kids. We’re going to be starting a lot of 10th-graders, and eighth grade has 16 girls out. It’s just getting through this year and gaining experience,” Davis said. “The future is bright.”

Buffalo senior set to break high school pole vault record
Mitchell Valli, a senior from Buffalo, will look to break the state pole vault record this season, along with two other seniors in the state. Valli has already gone above the record of 15 feet, 8 inches, but not during the high school season. He cleared 15 feet, 9 inches at a USA Track and Field Junior Olympics meet last June. Lee Bares of Lakeville South, and Grant Krieger of Blake are also on pace to break the record. Valli is the grandson of Tom and Linda (Micka) Paumen, and the great-grandson of Lucille Micka, formerly of Silver Lake.

Weather Corner
By Jake Yurek
Well, winter is just not wanting to give up this year; maybe it’s what we get for our non-winter last year. Most areas saw plenty of accumulating snow from our big storm with a messy cold rain/snow mix for the weekend. And the hits kept coming for the upper Midwest Sunday as Bismarck and areas of North Dakota saw anywhere from 16 to 20-plus inches of snow (so much for it being mid-April). Moving onto this week: we stay in an active pattern with yet another chance of precipitation and, yes, snow is again a possibility. The storm will exit the Rockies Wednesday and spread its precipitation over us from about midday Wednesday and possibly lasting a bit into Thursday. Right now, it looks like it might start off as snow and change to a mix, but we are so close to the freezing line that more up-to-date forecasts should definitely be looked at. Accumulating snow will be a chance with most models keeping us in the 1- to 3-inch range, but anything can happen this time of year. It dries up to end the week and finally begins to warm closer to 50. Another weaker storm will push through late Saturday into Sunday, but it would bring hopefully only a few rain showers. Highs Sunday could push into the 50s if we get enough clearing during the day, so here’s to hoping! Taking a peek at the extended shows another storm brewing for the upper midwest around the Tuesday timeframe, but the bulk of this one may stay south; we’ll have to keep an eye on it. Ma dobry weekendem Mit dobry vikend Wednesday night — Lows 28-34; snow/rain mix (some accummulations?) Thursday — Highs 34-40, lows 24-31; mix early/clouds. Friday — Highs 37-43, lows 21-28; partly cloudy. Saturday — Highs 43-50, lows 32-38; partly cloudy/night rain. Sunday — Highs 46-53; rain shower early/partly cloudy. Weather Quiz: What type of weather should we be seeing this time of year? Anwer to last week’s question: I may have either forgot if I missed a weather quiz last week or just can’t remember, so my apologies for the missing week. Remember: I make the forecast, not the weather!
GSL School Board places 3 teachers on unrequested leave
By Rich Glennie Editor The Glencoe-Silver Lake School Board placed three probationary teachers on unrequested leave at its April 8 meeting at Lakeside Elementary in Silver Lake. Put on leave were Brandette Barrett, a kindergarten teacher at Helen Baker Elementary; Angela Mellies, a first-grade teacher at Helen Baker Elementary; and Amanda Redman, sixth-grade teacher at GSL Lakeside Elementary. Their contracts are not being renewed. The cuts were part of an annual budget review, including staff needs, for the coming school year. In other matters, the School Board: • Heard that the Grove Avenue reconstruction project in Silver Lake will begin before the end of April and school bus routes will need to be changed for the Lakeside students. • Heard that bids are expected to be ready for the Early Childhood Family Education/Special Education addition by May 16. • Heard from board member Jason Lindeman, also a member of the facilities committee, that there will be a number of projects this summer concerning school facilities, including removing the incinerators at the junior high/high school; repairing the high school water heater and boiler; and replacing of some air handling units in the buildings. “The buildings are showing some age,” Lindeman said. • Accepted the resignations of Kevin Peters as school nurse, effective April 11, and Vonnie Nelson as front desk staff person at the Panther Field House. • Hired Brenda Danielson as a long-term substitute teacher for Jamie Rossmiller, who will be on family leave around May 1. Also hired was Susan Dietel as a long-term substitute counselor for Sue Magnuson, who will be on family leave beginning around April 22. • Granted a leave request by Kathryn Anglin, early childhood family education teacher, for family leave at the beginning of the 2013-14 school year through Sept. 23. • Accepted the following donations, with thanks: Crow River Sno Pros, $1,000 for trip abroad and $1,000 for the trap shooting program. McLeod County SHIP minigrant for the FFA garden, $3,000. Midwest Machinery, robotics program, $75. Seneca Foods, robotics program, $500, and Business Professionals of America (BPA) program, $500.

New Pastoral Center groundbreaking set
NEW ULM — After eight years of planning and fundraising, the Catholic Diocese of New Ulm is set to begin construction on its new Pastoral Center with a 2 p.m. groundbreaking ceremony on Friday, April 19 in New Ulm. “I am looking forward to this significant event in the history of the diocese,” said the Most Rev. John M. LeVoir, bishop of the Diocese of New Ulm. “The new building is a sign that the diocese is alive and looking to a future built on the principles of the New Evangelization.” The current Pastoral Center, located at 1400 Sixth St. North in New Ulm, was built in 1960 as the bishop’s residence and as an office building for a small number of diocesan officials. Today, the building houses over 20 diocesan offices, which assist Bishop LeVoir in ministering to the diocese’s 60,391 Catholics. The new Pastoral Center will be located at the corner of Fifth Street North and Highland Avenue, about 100 yards from the current center. At 28,320 square feet, the twostory structure (which includes a finished basement, will be slightly larger than the current Pastoral Center. It will have 30 offices, five conference rooms, three work rooms and a chapel. “The proposed Pastoral Center building is functional, but it is also a well-designed and beautiful building,” Bishop LeVoir said. “My hope is that those who look upon the building and enter the building will have their minds turned to God, the creator of beauty.” At the end of 2004, KOH Architects of Mankato conducted a facility conditions assessment of the current Pastoral Center. It found a number of problems, including corroded and leaking pipes, faulty electrical wiring and mold caused by condensation. Later estimates determined the cost of renovating the building would be the same or slightly more than constructing a new one. In January 2011, the diocese launched a $15 million capital campaign — the “Christ Our Life” campaign — to raise funds for the new Pastoral Center. Half the money would be dedicated to the Pastoral Center and the other half used for projects in the diocese’s 76 parishes. So far the campaign has raised $12.6 million. In April 2012 meetings began designing the new building. Construction will begin at the end of April 2013 and is expected to take a year to complete. “I am a person who worries, so I will be most happy when the building is complete,” Bishop LeVoir said. “Please pray that God’s will be done.”
