Final assessments for the
Grove Avenue reconstruction
project were approved at the
assessment hearing Monday
evening, and showed a de-
crease from the initial assess-
ment costs presented in
November.
“Bids were opened, and the
lowest bid came in under our
estimate. Rates we presented
in November are actually less
now,” said Justin Black, engi-
neer at Short Elliott Hendrick-
son, Inc. (SEH).
The water service lines were
initially assessed at $1,430
each, and decreased to $965
each. The sanitary sewer serv-
ice lines showed initial costs
of $800, and the final assess-
ment is $595 each. The esti-
mated assessment for costs of
the reconstructed street, in-
cluding street, curb and gutter,
sidewalk and storm drainage
was at $54 per linear foot, and
decreased to $46 per linear
foot.
Black outlined the total proj-
ect costs for the residents,
showing that the street im-
provements are budgeted at
$924,596, the sanitary sewer
costs at $114,211, the storm
sewer costs at $300,757, and
the water main costs at
$162,901, for a total of about
$1.5 million.
“The contingency is set at 5
percent, for unplanned costs,
such as the possible discovery
of contaminated soils, and that
cost is $75,123.
“The project-related costs
are also added in at a cost of
$392,000, and that covers
costs of hiring a resident proj-
ect representative and devel-
opment and planning costs,”
Black said.
The resident project repre-
sentative is Al Hahn of SEH,
Inc., and he will be on site
nearly every day to oversee
construction and answer any
questions for residents.
Black said the total cost of
the project is $1.969 million,
and the financing for the proj-
ect shows that neighborhood
assessments will pay for
$247,423; the County State
Aid Highway (CSAH) funding
is $1.2 million; and the re-
maining $522,165 will be paid
through the city’s general levy,
from sanitary sewer and water
utility funds.
Black said the assessments
were calculated based on the
city’s policy.
The total assessable footage
for costs is 4,200 feet, and the
city assesses 50 percent of the
street costs. Street improve-
ments include street, curb and
gutter, sidewalk and storm
drainage.
One hundred percent of the
storm sewer costs are assessed
to the benefiting propery own-
ers, and these costs include
providing service connections
from the main line to the right-
of-way.
Black said the residents may
prepay the assessment amount
in full or any amount of the
costs within 30 days to avoid
interest.
After 30 days, an interest
rate of 4 percent will be ap-
plied. Black said that rate was
determined on the city’s inter-
est rate to bond for the project.
“In November, the balances
will be given to the county,
and they will certify an assess-
ment roll. The assessment
costs will then show up on
your taxes over the course of
15 years,” Black said.
“The assessments do not in-
clude the cost of bringing a

County Board approves new
social host ordinance, 3-2
By Lori Copler
Staff Writer
On a 3-2 vote Tuesday, the
McLeod County Board of
Commissioners passed a social
host ordinance, with commis-
sioners Jon Christensen and
Ron Shimanski casting the dis-
senting votes.
Christensen had the
strongest criticism of the pro-
posed ordinance, which would
make hosting a party at which
underage drinking took place a
misdemeanor offense for the
“host.”
Christensen said he raised
the issue with constituents,
many of whom felt the ordi-
nance doesn’t address the real
concern, “which is how the
kids are getting alcohol.”
Christensen said he also
consulted an attorney, who in-
dicated that adopting the law
could open those charged to
civil, as well as criminal, ac-
tion.
Christensen also called the
proposed ordinance “more of a
guilty-until-proven-innocent
type of a law.”
Another concern raised by
those to whom he talked,
Christensen said, was that it
would create more drinking
and driving.
“Now we’re putting them
into vehicles and they’re
drinking and driving,” said
Christensen. “Rather than be
grounded in one place, we’re
putting them on the road.”
Shimanski, on his part, said
he felt that there are already
too many laws on the books
and, while he felt current pros-
ecutors would use the ordi-
nance responsibly in
considering charges, “is it
crafted tight enough that an-
other prosecutor wouldn’t try
to stretch the boundaries.”
Jim Raiter, Glencoe’s chief
of police, said Glencoe prose-
cutes one to two social host
cases a year, and that it is in-
cumbent upon the police de-
partment to “do our due
diligence and make sure the
investigation is done prop-
erly.”
Shimanski also noted that
stringent laws have long-last-
ing impacts on people’s job se-
curity, saying that many with
records cannot find jobs and
end up on welfare.
Michele Barley, a public de-
fender who helped craft the or-
dinance with a Zero Adult
Provider (ZAP) committee,
presented information about
the ordinance to a group of
students who were in atten-
dance for student government
day. She tried to address some
of the commissioners’ con-
cerns.
Barley likened the ordi-
nance to both the seat belt law
and the law passed to restrict
the sale of certain over-the-
counter medication that also is
used to manufacture metham-
phetamine.
The goal of such laws is
public protection and to edu-
cate people about the perils of
illegal drug use or, in the case
cited above, the benefits of
using seat belts.
“Hopefully, this will change
the way people look at under-
age drinking, and we won’t
need ordinances like this any
Neighbors concerned about proposed county highway shed
By Lori Copler
Staff Writer
A couple of neighbors
protested McLeod County’s
plans to build a highway main-
tenance shed southwest of the
Highway 7/County State Aid
Highway (CSAH) 15 intersec-
tion, but the McLeod County
Planning Commission will
recommend approval of a con-
ditional use permit to allow the
shed to the County Board of
Commissioners.
At a public hearing held by
the Planning Commission
April 24, neighbors expressed
concern about increased truck
traffic on CSAH 15, safety on
the road and potential noise
from back-up alarms and the
loading of sand and gravel.
The county is planning to
build the highway shed on
about 9-1/2 acres of land. The
proposal includes a nearly
12,000-square-foot shed to
store and maintain vehicles,
and another sand/salt storage
building of about 5,120 square
feet.
County Zoning Administra-
tor Larry Gasow said the
building of the facility is an al-
lowed use in an agricultural
zone, but it requires the condi-
tional use permit because the
property is less than 10 acres
in size.
Neighbor Joel Zellmann,
who has a retail automotive
business across the road from
the proposed site, said he had
concerns about the road.
“That road is already getting
kind of narrow, and now
you’re going to add even more
traffic? Wow,” said Zellmann.
Zellmann said concern about
traffic “was a big issue” when
he applied for his conditional
use permit, and “now we’re
going to add dump trucks?”
Ron Vorlicek, another
neighbor, said he was con-
cerned about the driveway
being too close to the intersec-
tion. “There’s a lot of traffic
coming up to the stop sign, and
there’s a little bit of a hill,” he
said. “The view is tough for a
car. It’s a safety issue.”
Elvis Voigt, county highway
maintenance supervisor, said
that plans to improve CSAH
15 are in place, but because he
isn’t part of the engineering
department, he wasn’t sure of
when or how the road would
be improved.
Voigt did say, however, that
“there has been talk of a turn
lane when the road is recon-
structed.”
Until that reconstruction
project happens, Voigt said, the
highway department is plan-
ning a wider driveway ap-
proach to accommodate the
turning trucks.
Voigt also said that, except
during snow removal, traffic in
and out of the shed should be
minimal, with trucks leaving
in the morning and not return-
ing until the end of the day.
“It’s not like they’re going in
and out all day long,” Voigt
said.
The building will have 12
stalls, and Voigt said the plan
is to house four trucks, a motor
grader, a loader and other mis-
cellaneous equipment in the
building.
Ivan Alsleben, another resi-
dent in the area, asked why the
county was building the shed.
Voigt said the proposed shed
will replace two aging sheds
currently located in Silver
Lake and Lester Prairie, with
the one shed between the two
communities.
Voigt said the Silver Lake
and Lester Prairie buildings
were both designed for
smaller, single-axle trucks, and
there isn’t enough area to walk
around today’s larger equip-
ment.
“The guys have to climb
over the trucks because they
can’t walk around them,” said
Voigt. “It’s a safety issue.”
Alsleben also asked how the
proposed $1.2 million building

more,” said Barley.
And, she said, sometimes
the government takes the role
of protector and enacts laws
for public safety.
“Sometimes you have to
force people to see that this is
a safety issue,” said Barley.
Barley also said that most of
the crimes she sees in court in-
volve alcohol, drugs, sex and
gambling.
“If you saw in this court-
house what I see every day,
there is no way you’d vote
against this ordinance,” said
Barley.
One student said that a
countywide ordinance is better
than a city one, such as the one
currently in use in Glencoe.
Otherwise, Chad Thompson
said, the local law just “forces
people to move their parties
out into the county.”
Other students pointed out
inconsistencies in the laws.
For example, under state
statute, a parent can allow their
underage child to drink in pri-
vate setting with their parents’
permission.
One student thought that
was OK.
“Your parents aren’t going
to let you get hammered and
stumble around,” she said.
But other students said that
if research shows that if alco-
hol use is dangerous to young
people, it ought not be allowed
at all.
Barley said research shows
that alcohol can have emo-
tional, physical and social im-
pacts on young people.
Young people’s brains, she
said, do not fully develop until
they are in their mid-20s.
“People don’t start to make
wise choices for themselves
until they are in their mid-
20s,” Barley said.
As the discussion came to a
close, and before the County
Board voted, Chair Paul
Wright asked for a show of
hands from the students, ask-
ing them “are we making the
community safer, or are we
just finding another way to
bust somebody?”
Wright then noted that there
was some student support of
each view.
The County Board then
voted, with Sheldon Nies,
Wright and Kermit Terlinden
voting in favor, and Chris-
tensen and Shimanski voting
against it.

new line into your houses. You
will have to get bid prices from
local contractors,” City Clerk
Kerry Venier said.
One resident asked if Hahn
would be able to help with that
task, and Venier said he can
put together local contractor
information for the residents.
“I’ll post phone numbers
and contact information for
local contractors. The reason
we can’t combine these costs
with the assessments is be-
cause they are private lines,”
Venier said.
Fifteen residents were in at-
tendance for the meeting, and
also asked questions regarding
mail and garbage/recycling
pick-up.
“We will have a temporary
bank with house numbers on it
for mail, which will be located
on the west side of Grove Av-
enue on Main Street. There
will also be a new mailbox
hanger installed,” Black said.
For garbage and recycling
services, the residents are to
put their addresses on their
bins, and set them out. Black
said the contractors will pick
them up with a skid loader,
bring them to a site for pick up,
and return them to the proper-
ties.
Residents also asked about
getting in and out of their
driveways during construction.
Engineer John Rodeberg
said, “there will be times you
can’t get in and out. But call Al
Hahn because often, we can
work something out if you
need to travel. We’ve worked
around birthdays, weddings
and other occasions.”
Rodeberg and Black also re-
minded residents they will be
using temporary water service
lines during construction.
On a 5-0 vote, the City
Council approved the final as-
sessment rates, and approved

Mark Johnson, the Commis-
sion chair, said that Alsleben
would have to take that ques-
tion to the County Board.
“We’re just here to discuss
the building,” said Johnson.
Zellmann also was con-
cerned about noise, particu-
larly the back-up alarms early
in the morning on snowy days.
Bill Hard, Commission
member, said that the building
and lot were both designed for
through traffic.
“The only backing up would
be inside the building,” said
Hard.
Zellmann said that would
not hold true when the pay
loader was loading sand and
gravel into trucks.
Hard pointed out that would
take place to the northwest of
the building, away from the
neighbors.
However, Hard did say he
felt some type of screening
should be used to shield view
of the building from Zell-
mann’s residence, and the
commission added a tree belt
as a condition on the permit.
With that condition, the
Commission approved the per-
mit, which will now go before
the County Board for final ap-
proval at its May 21 meeting.

This last week has been
very adventurous for me — I
shot my first .22 last Thursday,
tried bear chili on Sunday at
the Wild Game Feed, experi-
enced the kick from shooting
a black-powder rifle, and bat-
tled my fear of heights by
climbing a tree stand seven
feet into the air.
Enrolling in that firearm
safety course was a great idea.
Most of you know, and I’ve
said it before, I love to travel.
But as I get older my trips
have been few and far be-
tween, so to get my fill of ad-
venture, I’ve been trying new
things in the area.
At Tuesday’s firearm safety
class, we spent the evening
outside learning to load and
fire black-powder rifles,
climbing tree stands, shooting
a 3D buck target with recurve
bows and wooden arrows, and
maneuvering a canoe through
a duck pond.
Climbing the tree stand may
have been the biggest feat of
them all, as I am terrified of
heights.
Oddly enough, I love roller
coasters and other towering
rides at Valleyfair, but when it
comes to climbing a ladder to
get to the roof of our house to
sunbathe or to the top of a
seven-foot tree stand, my
blood starts to rush and my
body starts to shake as I white-
knuckle-it one step at a time.
When I started to climb that
metal stand, bear hugging the
tree for support, I couldn’t
help but remember the scariest
climb of my life — up a lean-
ing ladder of 105 steps along a
crumbling ruin in the middle
of the Guatemalan jungle.
In the summer of 2010, my
friend Brent and I backpacked
through Central America,
from Panama to Mexico, for
six weeks, and we spent nearly
a week in Guatemala, touring
the ancient Mayan ruins in
Tikal.
As we hiked through the
jungle and climbed around the
ruins, we came across one of
the tallest ruins, Temple V.
This temple is only 58 me-
ters high, or about 188.5 feet,
and has a crumbling staircase
leading to the top of it that said
“No Subio” or “No Climb-
ing.”
But alas, there is a wide lad-
der built along the temple for
tourists to use, and immedi-
ately, I vowed not to climb it.
If I can hardly make it to the
third step of a ladder to change
a light bulb without panicking,
how on earth would I make it
105 steps to the top of an an-
cient ruin?
However, as I watched
Brent climb to the top and
back down so effortlessly, I re-
alized this is a once-in-a-life-
time opportunity, and after 20
minutes obsessing over the
climb, I decided to go for it.
It had started to rain, which
increased my fear of slipping
off even more, but I pushed
through and headed up the lad-
der, gripping the sides of it so
hard that my hands turned
white.
I got to step 14 and nearly
turned around. I stood at that
step for several minutes, con-
templating the journey.
I started to head down the
ladder and made it to step 12
before my gut said, “Get your
butt back up that ladder. When
will you ever have this chance
again?”
This notion hit me hard, and
I headed straight up the ladder
without looking down once.
With every step, I whispered,
“Please God, don’t let me
slip,” and before I knew it, I
was at the 105th step, at the
top of Temple V, overlooking
the thick, green jungle and the
endless horizon.
My heart was pounding and
my pulse throbbing in my
neck; I was speechless, and in
awe of the stellar view. I was
also a bit dizzy from the rapid
change in altitude and even a
bit nauseated from climbing,
but it was a perfect moment.
Of course, the view from the
seven-foot tree stand was a lit-
tle different, and not so exhil-
arating, but rekindled that
thrill of adventure.
I’m thinking skydiving next.

Tree stand climb sparked memories
The Travel Section
By Alyssa Schauer
75 YEARS AGO - MAY 7, 1938 — Silver
Lake was hit by a terrific windstorm on Tuesday
afternoon a little after 3 o’clock, the worst in the
history of the village. The storm caused thou-
sands of dollars damage in the village and
nearby community. Power and telephone lines
and some poles were blown down or crashed by
huge trees uprooted all over town. A heavy
downpour of rain accompanied the storm.
The heaviest property damage in the village
was at St. Joseph’s Bohemian Church where a
section of the roof was torn off and one of the
big chimneys fell knocking another hole in the
roof. The public school building had a section
of the roof torn off, skylight crushed, and water
damage was heavy. John Navratil’s restaurant
and ice cream parlor had the entire plate-glass
front demolished and the brick work topping the
ridge of St. Adalbert’s School was blown to the
ground.
The roof on the Lopur building, occupied by
the Ed Oliva family, was torn off the south end
of the building. The big barn on the old brewery
property owned by F.H. Chalupsky and, in
which he had farm machinery stored, was
wrecked with sections of the roof being blown
all over the block. One big section of the roof
landed in F.J. Burich’s garden. A chimney on
the Leader office was blown over, smashing
holes in the roof and shingles were torn off. The
big garage recently built on Stephan Pawlak’s
premises, where Leo Kaczmarek stores his big
truck, was wrecked.
The grease shed at the John Pokornowski
Service Station was carried off and strewn over
adjoining fields. Windows in the porch in the
rear of living rooms above the Produce Store,
occupied by J.E. Ziska, blew out, wrecking the
porch and causing considerable water damage.
A big tree in the rear of the store toppled over
against the rear of Charley Podrasky’s Beer
Cafe. Two of the big windows in the front of the
Jos. Chalupsky building, occupied by Clarence
Vorlicek’s Beer Cafe, blew in.
In the country, considerable damage was
done to farm buildings and houses. Steve Poko-
rnowski’s windmill was wrecked, two barns and
the hog house on the Nuwash farm at South Sil-
ver Lake, occupied by Willard Birkholtz, were
wrecked and all the windows in the house were
blown out.
John Wendolek’s farm buildings sustained se-
vere damages, a silo at the Frank Korista farm
was wrecked, Stanley Mallak’s barn was moved
and a hay rack of Will Makovsky’s was carried
out into the lake.

Poppy Day
set May 17
On Friday, May 17, the Sil-
ver Lake American Legion is
observing “Poppy Day.”
Please donate, wear a poppy,
and help support veterans.
Each year around Memo-
rial Day, Veterans of Foreign
Wars members and American
Legion Auxiliary volunteers
distribute millions of bright
red poppies in exchange for
contributions to assist dias-
bled and hospitalized veter-
ans.
The program provides mul-
tiple benefits to the veterans
and to the community. The
hospitalized veterans who
make the flowers are able to
earn a small wage, which
helps to supplement their in-
comes and makes them feel
more self-sufficient.
The physical and mental
activity provides many thera-
peutic benefits as well. Dona-
tions are used exclusively to
assist and support veterans
and their families.
The poppy also reminds the
community of the past sacri-
fices and continuing needs of
our veterans. The poppy has
become a nationally known
and recognized symbol of
sacrifice and is worn to honor
the men and women who
served and died for their
country in all wars.
Around 1924, the Ameri-
can Legion Auxiliary adopted
the poppy as the organiza-
tion’s memorial flower and
pledged its use to benefit our
servicemen and their families.
Today, the poppy continues
to provide a financial and
therapeutic benefit to those
hospitalized and disabled vet-
erans who construct them, as
well as benefiting thousands
of other veterans and their
families.
Each nine-piece poppy is
made by veterans for veterans
in Auxiliary-sponsored poppy
shops that supplement physi-
cal and psychological therapy
needed by hospitalized and
disabled veterans.
The Auxiliary provides the
materials and the volunteers.
The veteran makes the poppy
and is paid a small amount for
each painstakingly made
flower. For some, it is their
only income.
The memorial poppy is
never sold, but given in ex-
change for a contribution.
As a prelude to Pola-Czesky
Days, the first of six Thursday
night Music in the Park gath-
erings will begin Thursday,
June 20. There will not be
Music in the Park on Thursday,
July 4. Watch for schedules,
which will be posted soon.
The Music in the Park Com-
mittee is asking for donations
of prizes to be given away at
these gatherings.
In order to have your dona-
tion acknowledged as being
donated by you, your business,
or organization, please have
them to the committee by June
10, so a listing may be com-
piled.
Donors are encouraged to
put their names on the prizes if
they want to be acknowledged.
Any donations turned in to the
committee after that date, or
brought to Music in the Park,
will be listed as given by an
anonymous donor.
If you have any questions,
please call DeNeil or Lisa
Thompson at 320-327-2278 or
Ray or Sharon Bandas at 320-
327-3115.

Chocolate Eclair Cake
Submitted by Diane Dostal
Ingredients:
Crust:
1 cup water
1/2 cup butter
1 cup flour
4 large eggs
Filling:
1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
1 large box (5.1 ounces) instant vanilla pudding
3 cups milk
Topping:
1 container (8 ounces) cool whip
Chocolate syrup or homemade chocolate sauce
Directions:
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Lightly grease a
9x13-inch baking pan. For the crust, in a
medium saucepan, melt butter in water and
bring to a boil. Remove from heat. Stir in flour.
Mix in one egg at a time, mixing completely be-
fore adding another egg. Spread mixture into
pan, covering the bottom and sides evenly. If the
sides of your pan are too greased, you won’t be
able to get the mixture to stay up, so make sure
to just lightly grease. Bake 25 to 30 minutes or
until golden brown. Don’t overbake the crust.
Remove from oven and let cool. (Don’t touch
or push bubbles down). For the filling, whip
cream cheese in a medium bowl. In separate
bowl, make vanilla pudding. Make sure pud-
ding is thick before mixing with cream cheese.
Slowly add pudding to cream cheese, mixing
until there are no lumps. Let cool in fridge.
When the crust is completely cooled, pour fill-
ing in. Top with layer of cool whip and serve
with chocolate syrup.

In medium bowl, stir baking mixture ingredi-
ents with whisk or fork until blended. Spoon 1
scant tablespoon baking mixture into each muf-
fin cup. Top with about 1/4 cup burger mixture.
Scoop 1 tablespoon baking mixture onto burger

The Glencoe-Silver Lake
boys’ and girls’ track teams
have got off to a hectic start the
past week, participating in an
indoor meet in Foley, a dual
with Belle Plaine, and a confer-
ence competition at New Lon-
don-Spicer.
The Panthers opened the
conference schedule with a
strong showing against three
WCC teams. The boys took
first, and the girls finished
third.
Dalton Clouse manufactured
10 points by taking first in the
110-meter hurdles (17.57) and
second in the 300-meter hur-
dles (43.57).
The relay teams took first
place in two of the four relay
events, and came away with
another 18 points.
The field was dominated by
Panther boys, with Tanner
Konen taking first in the pole
vault (13 ft).
Trent Draeger had a big day,
placing first in the long jump
(20-1.50), and first in the triple
jump (42-2.00).
Clouse, Tyler Donnay and
Nick Rose took second through
fourth places in the discus,
racking up 10 more points for
the boys.
The girls produced 46.5 team
points, just edging NL-S by .75
of a point to stay out of last
place.
Kelly Arnold gave GSL a
six-point lead after posting a
12.76 100-meter dash first
place finish.
Kelly Beneke and Kaylee
Venier added five more points
with third and fourth place fin-
ishes in the 200-meter dash.
The Panther girls would not
score any more points until five
events later when Jennifer Illg
produced a fourth-place finish
in the 100-meter hurdles, earn-
ing two points. Illg also took
third in the 300-meter hurdles.
First-place finishes in the
4x200 meter relay (1:51.41)
and 4x800 meter relay
(10:47.27) gave GSL its biggest
point production since Arnold’s
100-meter dash performance.
In the field, the girls had their
strongest showing in the triple
jump and discus. Shelby
Clouse took first in the triple
jump (30-11.75), and Clarissa
Ober earned second in the dis-
cus (92-11).
Belle Plaine Dual
The track and field teams
saw their first outdoor action of
the season at Belle Plaine on
Thursday, April 25.
The boys were edged out by
Belle Plaine/Holy Family
Academy by a score of 77-69.
GSL finished first in all four
relay events.
Greg Ober took first in the
200-meter dash, and Isiah Her-
out took first as well in the
3200-meter run.
The boys made up some
ground in the field, but not
quite enough.
GSL’s girls did not quite
have the showing they wanted,
losing 107.5-38.5.
The highlight for the Panther
girls on the track was Shelby
Clouse’s 13.00 first place 100-
meter dash finish, and first
place finishes in the 4x200 and
4x400 meter relays.
Ober had a big day in the
field, placing first in the shot
put (31-11) and second in the
discus (87-11).

Track and field teams perform well at
conference meet in New London-Spicer
Silver Lake Leader photo by Josh Randt
Senior Brandon Greeley finished second
in the 110-meter hurdles at Belle Plaine
on Thursday, April 25. The Panther boys
and girls performed well for their first
outdoor meet of the season, and have a
hectic schedule in the coming weeks.
Softball team starts 1-1

Standout golfer Alexis Kerslake shows some early sea-
son frustration at the Crow River Country Club in
Hutchinson on Friday, April 26.

Sports Editor
The Glencoe-Silver Lake
boys’ and girls’ golf teams
got their seasons under way
at New Ulm on Thursday,
April 25.
While the competition both
teams faced was non-confer-
ence, the first meet of the
season provided several cru-
cial hours for golfers to use
every club in their bag for the
first time all year.
The boys came in seventh
out of nine teams, shooting a
404 team score.
Sophomore Tate Lilienthal
shot a 96, the best round for
the Panthers. Senior Joe
Fehrenbach followed with a
97. Eric Steffel shot a 105,
while standout from last sea-
son, Lou Iacona, shot a 106.
Dylan Schuth posted a 108
and Patrick Fehrenbach a
114.
Lilienthal’s 96 put him in a
three-way tie for 21st place.
***
The girls had a slightly bet-
ter showing than the boys,
finishing fifth out of eight
teams with a 436 team score.
Sophomore Alexis Ker-
slake picked up where she
left off last season, shooting
a team best 103. Fellow
sophomore Allison Eischens
followed Kerslake with a
107, while Claire Wraspir
shot a 112. Ashlyn Ratike and
Lindsay Wedin both finished
with a 114 while Elizabeth
Gran notched a 118.
Kerslake tied for seventh
place with LeSueur-Hender-
son’s Kelsey Skelly.
The girls then traveled to
the Crow River Country Club
in Hutchinson on Friday,
April 26 for some WCC play.
The Panthers finished sev-
enth out of 11 teams with a
team score of 432, six places
behind Litchfield’s 373 first
place finish.
One thing is for sure, the
Wright County Conference
will offer some tough compe-
tition this season.
Kerslake shot a 101, tying
for 18th place with Waconia’s
Jenna Lund. Gran and Wedin
tied for 35th place shooting
110 a piece, while Wraspir
shot a 114, and Ratike a 120.
Panthers get blown out by
Holy Family; blow out NYA
By Josh Randt
Sports Editor
Holy Family 16,
GSL 0
The Glencoe-Silver Lake
Panther baseball team did not
get the result they wanted
against a tough Holy Family
team on Friday, April 26 at
Vollmer Field.
Jack Schliesman of Holy
Family sent Ethan Maass’
fourth pitch of the season into
the field for a single.
Connor Riddle then doubled
three batters later to move
Schliesman to third, who then
scored the game’s first run on a
wild pitch.
Things didn’t get much better
for the Panthers in the second
when the Fire scored four more
runs.
GSL had chances to gain on
the Fire in the second and third.
But every time a runner made it
to second, Holy Family’s Con-
nor Herd found the mitt no mat-
ter who swung the bat, closing
out both innings with batters
caught looking.
That was the only time the
Panthers threatened in the 16-0
shellacking.
GSL 11, NYA 1
The Panthers then hosted the
Raiders from Norwood-Young
America on Saturday, April 27,
and earned their own blowout
victory, 11-1.
A huge seven-run first inning
got the Panthers rolling, and
GSL never looked back.
NYA got its first out six bat-
ters into the first inning. By then
the Panthers had reached base
by way of two singles, two
walks, and a first basemen’s
error.
The Panthers made it through
the entire batting order and the
first two hitters again before the
Raiders got out of the inning.
Every Panther that started either
reached a base or put the ball in
play in the first inning. Teddy
Petersen, Ethan Maass, Nolan
Lepel, Reed Dunbar, Brandon
Ebert, Cole Petersen and Carter
Pinske all scored in the first.
Senior Derek Bratsch had a
big day on the mound for the
Panthers in his first start of the
season. He pitched five innings,
faced 23 batters, gave up three
hits, struck out three, hit two
batters and threw 52 strikes out
of 92 pitches.

Teddy Petersen escapes a hot box against Holy Family
on Friday, April 26. Though Petersen survived the
pickle, the Panthers were torched by the Fire, 16-0, be-
fore thumping NYA 11-1 the next day.

Sports Editor
The Glencoe-Silver Lake
softball team got a one-run lead
in the first inning at home
against Holy Family on Friday,
April 26, and won behind a
stingy defense 1-0.
Senior Courtney Lemke sin-
gled with two outs in her first at
bat against the Fire. She would
not have to wait long as Piper
Davis followed her up with a
two-strike triple to get the team’s
lone run.
The Fire threatened in the
fourth and fifth. Getting runners
on third in both instances, but
Lemke struck out Hayley
Thompson to end the fourth, and
got Liz Jansen to fly out in the
fifth.
Lemke pitched all seven in-
nings, faced 27 batters, walked
two and gave up six hits while
retiring five by strikeout in the
season opener.
Annandale 13,
GSL 7
Lemke did not have the same
showing against fellow confer-
ence opponent Annandale on
Monday, April 29.
Lemke kept the Cardinals
scoreless through three innings
while GSL racked up five runs
in the same amount of time.
What looked to be a hot start
for the Panthers quickly smol-
dered when the Cardinals ex-
ploded in the fourth with five
runs, tying it at 5-5.
Annandale took a one-run
lead in the top of the fifth, which
could have gone worse for GSL
with three Cardinals reaching
base in the inning.
Lemke would lead off the fifth
with a double, and cross home
plate three batters later from a
Josie Schmitt double to even the
score once again at 6-6.
A fly out from Jenna Gunner-
son started out the sixth. But
with one out, the Cardinals
ripped off four straight runs be-
fore GSL got another out. With
two outs, the Cardinals bats still
had some pop as they tallied
three more runs before the in-
ning ended.
A seven-run sixth was too
much for the Panther girls to
overcome, going three and out to
cap off the inning.
Stephanie Klockmann scored
in the seventh, but that was all
the Panthers could muster,
falling 13-7 in an entertaining
WCC game.

We head back into weather jail this week after what
seems like our first nice weekend of the year moves to the
rear view.
A strong high pressure ridge will build over the eastern
part of the country this week, blocking the normal flow of
weather. This will allow a low-pressure area to linger over
the central part of the U.S. from late week into the week-
end, knocking temperatures down and bringing in chances
of rain.
Highs will be well below average again, staying in the
40s to end the week and, hopefully, making a run at some
50s by the weekend.
If you enjoy the sun, you probably want to stop reading
due to the fact we won’t be seeing much of it from Wednes-
day through the entire weekend.
Rain chances increase toward the end of the week, but
the focus looks to stay to our south and east. Some indica-
tions are that we could get an inch or more of rain during
this period, but it’ll be hard to keep moisture going in this
long-lived storm. Regardless, it will feel like a very Pacific
Northwest-type weather pattern.
Taking a peek at the extended forecast shows a ridge
building to our west, finally shifting the pattern, and a very
nice warm-up towards the middle of next week.
Ma dobry weekendem Mit dobry vikend
Wednesday night — Lows 32-38; rain, a few snowflakes
possible.
Thursday — Highs 43-49; lows 31-38; clouds/rain/snow

Weather Quiz: How is the drought situation looking after
all the precipitation we saw in April?
Answer to last week’s question: Highest temperature 106
degrees (May 31, 1934); lowest temperature 18 degrees
(May 3, 1967); most precipitation 3.16 inches (May 21,
1906); most snowfall (last snowfall mention until Septem-
ber!) 3 inches (May 1, 1935 and May 20, 1892).
