City Council to look into concert facility
By Alyssa Schauer Staff Writer Colin Clark, lead organizer of the “Bikes-n-Blues” music event held in August, approached the Silver Lake City Council at its meeting last Monday about forming a committee “to investigate creating a concert facility in Silver Lake.” Clark said the concert in August saw 450 attendees and 300 bikes throughout the day, and he reported that no incidents or accidents occurred. “It was a safe event that drew a lot of people, despite the 100-degree heat,” Clark said. He said he would like to see more events like “Bikes-nBlues” organized and suggested taking the next steps of researching options. Clark asked for help in investigating the idea to create a concert facility of about 25 acres in Silver Lake “so that a number of concerts can be provided.” “In addition, this facility would provide space for fixed vendor locations, parking, and camping facilities,” Clark said. He added that the USDA (United States Department of Agriculture) has made funds available for cities and forprofit organizations “to create vital community assets.” “I think it’s an awesome idea. Businesses around the area would see that and perhaps come to Silver Lake,” Councilor Eric Nelson said. “The only thing I wonder is would this be something for the planning commission?” Mayor Bruce Bebo asked. City Clerk Kerry Venier said that because the project is “at such initial stages,” the planning commission wouldn’t need to get involved until more details were certain. Clark said the “Bikes-nBlues” event was a “sort of joint-discovery project” with the City and that “there was a lot going on behind the scenes.” “It was a successful event, and I can’t stress enough the importance of what we did there,” Clark said. He said if the event had failed, he wouldn’t consider a concert facility, but he recognizes the need to bring people to small communities and to keep people living in those small communities. City Clerk Kerry Venier and Mayor Bruce Bebo volunteered to help Clark in his research. Clark also noted that the “Kick Off Independence Country” music event is set for July 4-5, 2014. It is a multiday festival celebrating Independence Day with a country music line up. The event will be held at the park near the pool. The second-annual “Bikesn-Blues” is scheduled for Sunday, Aug. 31, 2014, and includes a motorcycle contest, more bands, and more activities. In other matters, the Coun-

GSL questions city about recycling choice at Lakeside
By Alyssa Schauer Staff Writer The Silver Lake City Council clarified its commercial recycling ordinance after Lakeside Elementary questioned the city whether it should use Waste Management or West Central Sanitation for recycling business. City Clerk Kerry Venier said the school wanted to know what it should do as far as recycling goes, because of the “squabble” over recycling between the McLeod County Board and the Glencoe City Council. Currently, recycling is free for residents in McLeod County through its five-sort contract with West Central Sanitation. Earlier this year, the city of Glencoe voted to move to onesort recycling with Waste Management. “The school doesn’t want to get involved in the whole fight over recyclables. They aren’t linked to a contract in Glencoe so they want us to decide for them,” Venier said. According to Venier, Waste Management moved West Central’s blue bins from the school and replaced them with its own bins. “The school then asked us to decide for them which company to use. I recommend we do nothing. I’d rather see us stay out of that battle,” Venier said. He said as a city, Silver Lake doesn’t regulate commercial recycling. Councilor Pat Fogarty asked about the recycling services to the Municipal Liquor Store, and Venier said Waste Management picks up its recycling. “But the residential side is paid for by the county. It is a five-sort program,” Venier said. Fogarty also questioned the action to “sit back and do nothing.” “If we don’t make any recommendation, I could see Waste Management coming in here to say, ‘one-sort is the greatest thing.’ If we let businesses pick who they want, pretty soon people are going to say, ‘why doesn’t Waste Management pick up our recycling, too?’” Fogarty said. “They won’t. Because they’ll have to pay for it. They are paying for one-sort in Glencoe,” Venier said. “Is the school gun shy or something?” Council Carol Roquette asked. “The superintendent doesn’t want to get involved,” Venier said. Roquette also questioned not making a decision between West Central Sanitation and Waste Management. “We don’t want to jeopardize our garbage service with Waste Management,” she said. “Well, we have a contract with them for garbage. But we don’t regulate commercial recycling,” Venier said. He added that there are perks for the school in either service it chooses. “From the county, the school does get money back from recycling with West Central. But on the flipside, Waste Management picks up their recycling and garbage for free, but they might turn around and charge for garbage if they were to choose West Central,” Venier said. “The school can get garbage picked up by West Central too, right?” Mayor Bruce Bebo asked. “Yeah, they can do what they want,” Venier said. The Council also discussed keeping recycling business in the county. With West Central Sanitation, recyclables are brought to the facility in Hutchinson, and with Waste Management, recyclables are transported out of the county to a facility in Maple Grove. “As a community, we should kind of dig our heels in and say we want recycling to stay in the county. Why wouldn’t we want the profits to stay in the county?” Fogarty asked. The Council decided to continue to operate commercial recycling as it already does and leave the decision up to the school.

The Dahlke family of rural Glencoe was named the 2013 McLeod County Farm Family of the Year. From left to right are Matthew, Doug, Patty and Samantha
Dahlke. The Dahlkes own an 80-acre farm, and raise beef cows and feeder calves.
Dahlkes named McLeod County Farm Family of the Year for 2013
By Lori Copler Staff Writer oug and Patty Dahlke’s farm isn’t the largest in McLeod County in terms of acreage or head of cattle, but the couple and their children, Samantha and Matthew, are just as passionate about it as if they were running 1,200 acres of cropland and a 120-
head herd of cattle. And the family’s passion for their operation is probably why the Dahlkes were chosen as the 2013 McLeod County Farm Family of the Year. The Dahlkes are third generation on the farm, located northeast of Glencoe. Doug Dahlke’s grandfather bought it in 1941, sold it to his son, Bill, in 1976, and now Doug
Dahlke and family are the owners, having purchased the farm from Doug’s father in 2005. The Dahlkes run about 80 acres of cropland, and lease another 50 from the DNR for grazing their beef cows and feeder calves.

A true reporter: a little bit pesky
Ghandi once said, “I believe in equality for everyone, except reporters and photographers.” It’s no secret that reporters and photographers have a reputation of being distrusted, especially those only interested in uncovering the juiciest gossip or those behind the camera known as the annoying paparazzi. But as I’ve said before, being a reporter in Silver Lake is something special, because I don’t feel like a rat reporter, rather a familiar face the community trusts to cover the latest news in town, such as the re-opening of a meat market or the closing of a gas station. I like being the person to contact to take photos at all the events, whether at Lakeside Elementary of imaginative students goofing around or at the auditorium for Wings Music Fest or Rock-n-Roll Wrestling. And I especially love the calls to capture breaking news, such as the destructive fire in Lester Prairie on Monday, where for the first time in my three years as a journalist, I felt like a true reporter, getting shooed away for being a pest. Monday started off like any other work day — there were e-mails to be read, stories to be written, subscriptions to be filed, and other newspaper tasks to be finished. The office was bustling with advertisers and I was all over Silver Lake, running errands for the newspaper, taking pictures of great-grandpa Sam Shimanski playing the button box at Cedar Crest Estate, and retrieving photos from the school bus extrication held two weeks ago at Lakeside. At about 3 p.m., I got the call from my co-worker to head to Lester Prairie to shoot some photos of a destructive fire. As soon as I hung up, I grabbed my car keys and my camera, posted a sticky note to the door, “Be back by 4 p.m.,” and jumped in the Jeep. It took a few turns of the key before the Jeep turned over, but soon I was roaring down Lake Avenue to race to the scene. About halfway there, I realized I had forgotten my cell phone and my wallet that held my driver’s license, checkbook, and proof of insurance, and I quickly threw up a prayer that the Jeep wouldn’t break down and I wouldn’t get pulled over. Luckily, none of those things happened, and I made it

to the scene in time to capture the destruction of the former Cents Pizza building in Lester Prairie. I pulled up to the police barricade, and scrambled out of the Jeep to get the best view of the action. Big red fire trucks were parked every which way on the street in front the scene, their flashing lights warning of danger; thick yellow hoses laid like big snakes in the road; water and white foam pooled in the streets as firefighters from several local departments worked to put out the flames; yellow police ribbon tied from vehicles to light poles and trees fenced in the action and police officers stood at intersections directing traffic and curious bystanders standing in the park. I tiptoed around the hoses and past the police officers to join the children leaning against the cautionary “POLICE LINE DO NOT CROSS” ribbon for a better look at the firefighters doing their dangerous jobs. I snapped photo after photo, moving along the police barricade to get that perfect shot for the newspaper. After 15 minutes or so, I looked carefully around me and took a chance, lifting the police tape over my head to get closer to the action. I felt like a criminal disobeying the strict police charge “DO NOT CROSS” but as a reporter, it’s my job to do that, right? I got a few photos taken as I crept quietly around the fire trucks, and I even got close enough to step in a puddle of foaming water when a firefighter turned the corner from one of the trucks and flung his hands to “shoo” me away. I started laughing and said, “I know, I know,” and I took a couple more pictures when he sternly said, “It’s for your safety.” Sheepishly, I headed back under the police tape to join the rest of the bystanders, and the police kept their eyes on me until I took the rumbling Jeep out of town. It was a proud moment to be part of the annoying paparazzi because it meant I was doing my job, but I was also thankful for the firefighter’s warning of safety. McLeod County is lucky to have so many first responders and fire departments, and we are especially blessed as a small town to have the volunteer department in Silver Lake. So here’s to the men and women who volunteer their time, risk their lives, and deal with pesky reporters to keep our community safe.

Dahlkes Continued from page 1
Doug Dahlke said his father had a dairy operation, but sold the dairy cows in the late ’90s and bought four head of beef cows, with which the Dahlkes are slowly building a herd, expecting to freshen 18 cows next spring. Currently, both Doug and Patty Dahlke have full-time jobs off the farm — Doug works for Arnold’s Implement in Glencoe and Patty works for the Glencoe Veterinary Clinic. Both Samantha and Matthew Dahlke are active in school sports, as well as 4-H and FFA. All of that can leave a small chunk of time for the family to attend to farm duties. The only way to make it all work, Doug Dahlke said, is for everyone to pitch in, and to work a lot of early morning and late evening hours. “There are chores for everyone,” said Doug Dahlke. “Everyone does a little bit of something.” A typical day can start at 6 to 6:30 a.m. with the feeding of cattle and other chores. In the evening, after sports practices, supper, athletic events and meetings, everyone is chipping in on chores again. “Sometimes nights can get really late,” said Dahlke. “We might not get done until midnight or later.” And along with tending the cattle, the family plants and harvests oats, corn, beans and hay. Doug Dahlke said both Sam and Matt contribute a lot, especially in the summer. “They’re both very responsible,” said Doug Dahlke. “I can ask them to do anything, and then I don’t have to worry about it anymore. I know it’s going to get done.” Along with chores, Samantha is involved in cross country, is an FFA officer and participates in a large variety of 4-H activities. Matthew is involved in GSL football, and also is involved in FFA and 4H. Both show beef and swine, and Samantha also shows rabbits, while Matthew participates in shooting sports, shop, small engines and tractor. So, with full-time jobs, kids’ activities and community involvement, why do the Dahlkes keep on farming? It’s the passion for agriculture. “You have to love it,” said Doug Dahlke. “And I do love it. And you really got to love the land. Sometimes there are disappointments — you find out that a cow died during the night or a crop doesn’t do well, but every spring, the calves come along and I can’t wait to get out there.” And it isn’t as if the family doesn’t have help when they need it… if they go on vacation or take a weekend away for kids’ activities, Doug’s brothers and neighbors are willing to lend a hand. And Doug’s dad, although he no longer contributes physically, is always available for some sound advice. Besides farming, the Dahlkes hunt on their land — wild turkeys, deer and other wildlife. Another way the farm gives back to the family, Doug Dahlke said. “I’ve always believed that if you treat the land well, it will treat you well,” Doug said. “And it has treated us well.” He added that he hopes to keep growing the family operation. “I’d like to have something to leave to the kids, if they so desire to keep farming,” said Doug. “I’d like to see it stay in the family.

Panthers route Wildcats 42-25
By Josh Randt Sports Editor The Glencoe-Silver Lake Panther football team has seen both ends of the spectrum when it comes to competition, and now looks to settle right into the rest of its schedule. The Panthers defeated the New London-Spicer Wildcats 42-25 Friday night at Stevens Seminary Stadium. GSL has stuck with the trend of being a second-half team, scoring 27 of its 42 points in the third and fourth quarters. The game was closer than the final score let on, as GSL had a one score lead, 15-7, at halftime. But it only took about six minutes into the second half before the Panthers were up 28-7. Keaton Anderson completed a 21-yard strike to Tanner Grack on GSL’s eighth play that resulted in a touchdown. NLS committed a motion penalty on the ensuing drive, and was intercepted by Zach Pierson during the next play. Dalton Clouse scored from 13 yards out on the sixth play of GSL’s next possession, giving the Panthers a 28-7 advantage. The Wildcats started to close the gap, scoring on their next to possessions to make it 28-19. But NLS could not recover Sophomore Teddy Petersen intercepted Ryan Vraa’s first pass on the next drive, and two kneeldowns from Anderson later and the game was over. Petersen finished with seven total tackles and the game-ending interception, but gave the credit to the entire GSL defense. “I felt good, but I have to give it to our defensive line and our linebackers too,” the sophomore said. “They were making plays and helping me out and not just having me make tackles by myself.” GSL managed to rush for 300 yards against a large defensive line for NLS, which had linemen at, or close to, 300 pounds. “It was a battle from the first play to the last,” senior offensive linemen Nolan Lepel said. “There were guys flying everywhere, but we knew what we needed to do.” Lepel said offensively, the team wanted to get after NLS early. “Before the game we said, ‘let’s start the game off from the first play, let’s not wait,’” Lepel said. “We fired off right away and got after it.” The 3-1 Panthers now travel to Litchfield this week for a matchup with the 1-3 Dragons, who beat Redwood Valley last week, 21-15.

CC teams perform well at home meet
By Josh Randt Sports Editor Posting a third- and firstplace finish last week, the boys’ cross country team proved it can compete, even when down a runner, or two. Brandon Richter took second place at the Caty Delwiche Invitational hosted in Glencoe on Thursday with a time of 17:45. Earlier in the week, Richter was unable to finish the Run of the Lakes meet held in Waconia due to headaches. Teammate Cody Becker dropped out of the meet last second as well because of a family emergency. Without two very seasoned runners, Glencoe-Silver Lake finished third out of 10 teams with a score of 89 points. The Panthers took first at their home meet, the Caty Invitational, with a score of 26 points, showing what they can do with a full lineup. “If we ran there (Waconia) like we ran at our home meet, we would have been a couple places higher,” head coach Jeff Delwiche said. “That wasn’t our best day, and that was not what we were expecting. But, hopefully we’re not going to be burned out, and we’ll be fresher than a lot of these other teams we’ll see this season.” Richter said part of his problem at Waconia was the way he was running. “I needed to relax my body more,” Richter said. “I did that today and I felt so much better.” The junior said this team is still on track for making it to the state meet, but they need to take care of business. “Just keep winning,” he said of what they need to accomplish in order to make it to state. “We just need to do well at Duluth, rest, and then it’s sections.” Litchfield hosts the next competition on Thursday, Oct. 3, at 4 p.m. GSL then travels to Duluth for the Swain Invitational on Saturday, Oct. 5.

Above, the boys’ team waits for the starting gun of the Caty Delwiche Invitational last Thursday. At right, Tori Burr tries to extend her lead on the rest of the pack. Invitational on Thursday, and the girls finished third out of six teams with 71 points. Tori Burr continued her trend of top-10 finishes, placing third at Waconia (15:59), and first at the home meet with a time of 15:49. The senior standout said she was pleased with her first place finish at home, but that the course conditions made what should have been an easy race a little more difficult. “It was awful!” Burr said of the course conditions. “It was really soft and hard to push off, and super muddy. I was excited to run in the mud, but if we wouldn’t have had a race on Tuesday, my legs would have had more in them.” Burr wasn’t the only one who improved at the home meet. Jenny Illg finished in 13th place with a time of 18:30, while Kaylee Venier finished one spot behind her with the same time. Erica Hecksel’s performance was the biggest improvement, according to head coach Jann Savre. “She closed the gap to 20 seconds between our third and fourth runners, helping that team score,” Savre said. While the improvement is nice, “We need to continue to see this as we approach the second half of our season,” Savre said.

Panther tennis team preparing for sections
By Josh Randt Sports Editor The regular season for the Glencoe-Silver Lake tennis team came to an end last week, when they lost 6-1 to the New LondonSpicer Wildcats. With the loss to NLS, the Panthers now have the conference tournament scheduled for Thursday in either Orono or MoundWestonka to decide all conference and honorable mention honors. After that, team sections start on Wednesday, Oct. 2 at St. John’s University. So what did GSL learn from the loss to the Wildcats with the postseason fast approaching? “We need to be one ball better,” head coach Robb DeCorsey said. “There’s things that we know we need to work on. The girls need to ask to hit 100 extra balls or 200 extra balls. They know I’ll do whatever it takes, but they just have to really want to get after it.” Get after it, like Piper Davis and Jenessa Urban did in the No.2 doubles spot against NLS. The two earned the only victory on Friday, and have not played together in doubles all season long. What was the key to their success? “Communication,” Urban said. “Yeah, we communicated really well,” Davis echoed. Communication, and a group that was excited to play together, resulted in a 6-4, 6-0 two set victory. “We just both came in really pumped,” Urban said. “We were ready.” “We were also able to return their lobs really well,” Davis added. The win didn’t surprise DeCorsey, who said “right now, it’s kind of like whoever wants to play with Jenessa seems to be winning.” Going through a 6-14 season, it would be easy to give up, but Urban and the rest of this Panther team haven’t. Which makes the head coach happy. “I’m so proud of her,” DeCorsey said. “She has worked and worked and worked. She got an opportunity and she has made the most of that opportunity given to her.” With a limited amount of opportunities remaining on the season, the Panthers are now focused on the section tournament. “The whole year it’s been, ‘everyday, get better,’” DeCorsey said. “This week, it’s ‘one ball better.’ That’s where we have to be,” he reiterated.

Weather Corner
By Jake Yurek
Warm early this week with possibly some rain late in the week as a frontal system moves through the upper Midwest. Highs should remain in the 70s close to 80 early- midweek as warm air gets ushered back into Minnesota. A cold frontal system will bring in cooler temperatures and a shot at desperately needed rain Friday into the first part of the weekend. Highs this weekend should stay in the 60s with a run at low 70s Sunday if the front exits the area quickly enough. Weekend plans look mostly OK with the rain pushing to our east; cooler temperatures are all we should have to worry about and it won’t be too bad. There appears to be a shot of an inch for areas directly hit by the rain, so hopefully we’re close enough to the bull’s-eye to see some of that. Taking a peek at the extended shows a ridge trying to build in from the west for early next week, so temperatures should moderate up again. Have a great first full week of Fall!

DeCorsey celebrates 20 years of coaching
Former and current team members of the Glencoe-Silver Lake tennis team got together on Sept. 19 for a surprise party, honoring girls’ tennis coach Robb DeCorsey for his 20 years of coaching. “I had no clue!” DeCorsey said of the planned get-together that featured team photographs, cake and plenty of reminiscing. Current team members are marked with an *.

Wednesday night — Lows 52-58; clear. Thursday — Highs 76-82, lows 57-63; partly cloudy/ shower late? Friday — Highs 68-75, lows 47-53; clouds/rain-thunder. Saturday — Highs 63-69, lows 44-50; showers early/ partly cloudy. Sunday — Highs 67-73; clear. Weather Quiz: What are some of October’s weather extremes? Answer to last week’s question: It’s hard to say how trees will react to the dry weather this year since it’s been a weird weather year from the beginning. Indications are a later start and quick finish. This could happen quickly if we get an early frost any time soon. Remember: I make the forecast, not the weather!

Thalmann family farm welcomes visitors
The Thalmann family is used to having visitors on its farm in Plato. It just so happens that a lot of those visitors over the years have been from other countries. A 20-member delegation from Taiwan stopped by the Thalmann farm on Saturday, Sept. 14. The group was in Minnesota to sign a letter of intent to purchase $3.5 billion in U.S. grown corn and soybeans and wanted an up-close look at a Minnesota farm. The Thalmann farm — with its many acres of crops, pieces of equipment, buildings and storage facilities — was exactly what the group was looking for. “Being a farmer isn’t all about working the fields. You need to cultivate personal relationships, too,” said Brian Thalmann, who runs the corn and soybean farm that’s been in the family since 1877. Thalmann also serves on the Minnesota Corn Growers Association (MCGA) board, which helped coordinate the visit along with the Minnesota Soybean Growers Association (MSGA) and Minnesota Department of Agriculture. “Strong export markets are good for farmers and lead to job creation for the economy overall. Any time we can host one of our trade partners on our farm, we welcome the opportunity.” Brian’s father, Randall, estimates that over 400 foreign visitors (the first group came from Russia) have passed through the family farm since the late 1970s. In fact, the Thalmanns needed to find a new guest book for the Taiwan delegation to sign on Saturday since their old one was completely full. After lunch on the farm, Brian and Randall Thalmann provided an overview of their family operation. In addition to growing corn and soybeans, Randall and his father Arnold started a seed plant on the farm in the early 1970s. Thalmann Seeds, Inc., is still going strong today and sells seed corn, soybean, alfalfa, oats, spring wheat and winter wheat seed. While standing underneath one of the farm’s storage bins, Randall and Brian answered questions from the delegation. “How do you put gas in the combine?” a member of the delegation wondered. “Well, we don’t drive it to the local gas station,” Randall said to laughter from the group before pointing to the 12,000gallon fuel storage tank on the farm. Other questions focused on grain handling, corn drying, crop conditions and the history of agriculture in the area. Climbing on the farm equipment and having an opportunity to examine an actual corn and soybean field are also highlights for any foreign delegation that visits the Thalmann’s farm. The Taiwan delegation was no exception and took in the opportunity to sit in the cab of a combine and pose for pictures next to the Thalmann’s almost-ready-forharvest fields. “It was another great visit,” Brian said. “They’re welcome back any time.” MCGA has over 6,750 members and represents the interests of more than 24,000 corn farmers throughout Minnesota. The Minnesota Corn Research & Promotion Council (MCR&PC) administers the efficient and effective investment of Minnesota’s corn check-off. The shared mission of both organizations is to identify and promote opportunities for corn farmers, while building better connections with the non-farming public. To learn more about MCGA and MCR&PC, visit www.mn corn.org and follow @mncorn on Twitter.

In a large skillet, brown meat in oil on all sides; drain. Transfer to a 5-quart slow cooker. Top with sweet potatoes, parsnips, onion, sun-dried tomatoes, garlic, thyme, bay leaves and remaining salt and pepper. Combine broth and wine; pour over vegetables. Cover and cook on low for 6 to 8 hours or until meat and vegetables are tender. Skim fat. Discard bay leaves. All Day Apple Butter Ingredients: 5-1/2 pounds apples, peeled, cored and finely chopped 4 cups white sugar 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon 1/4 teaspoon ground gloves 1/4 teaspoon salt Directions: Place the apples in a slow cooker. In a medium bowl, mix the sugar, cinnamon, cloves and salt. Pour the mixture over the apples in the slow cooker and mix well. Cover and cook on high 1 hour. Reduce heat to low and cook 9 to 11 hours, stirring occasionally, until the mixture is thickened and dark brown. Uncover and continue cooking on low for 1 hour.

Ultimate Potato Soup Ingredients: 1 pound bacon, chopped 2 stalks celery, diced 1 onion, chopped 3 cloves garlic, minced 8 potatoes, peeled and cubed 4 cups chicken stock, or enough to cover potatoes 3 tablespoons butter 1/4 cup all-purpose flour 1 cup heavy cream 1 teaspoon dried tarragon 3 teaspoons chopped fresh cilantro Salt and pepper to taste Directions: In a Dutch oven, cook the bacon over medium heat until done.

Return the bacon to the pan and add enough chicken stock to just cover the potatoes. Cover and simmer until potatoes are tender. In a separate pan, melt the butter over medium heat.

School bus extrication
Two weeks ago, Ron Posusta and other bus drivers talked to students about steps to take in the event of a school bus accident.

At Lakeside, Posusta talked to students about exit strategies and safety precautions.
Midwest Dairy to host ‘School Milk Day’ contest
After heading back to school this fall, students across the Midwest will be asked to create their very own milk mustache poses for a chance to win Midwest Dairy Council’s Fuel Up with Milk World School Milk Day Contest, open from Sept. 18 to Oct. 2, 2013. Stickers and contest brochures were included in all Fuel Up to Play 60 Back to School Kits for the 2013-2014 school year. World School Milk Day is Sept. 25. To celebrate, teachers and students are encouraged to submit photos of themselves wearing real milk mustaches or milk mustache stickers while participating in various school activities – eating breakfast or lunch, working at a computer, doing a favorite physical activity or simply posing with a teacher or school principal. Full contest details and contest rules can be found at MidwestDairy.com/rewards. One Grand Prize winner will receive a $1,000 Fuel Up to Play 60 Game Time Rewards Prize Locker and two softsided Fuel Up to Play 60 coolers. Ten second-prize winners will be chosen to receive Fuel Up to Play 60 Game Time Rewards Prize Locker worth $500. Twenty third-prize winners will receive a soft-sided Fuel Up to Play 60 cooler. “We are looking forward to reviewing the submissions for this contest,” said Bridget Sheehan, a registered dietitian with Midwest Dairy Council. “We are encouraging schools to join in the celebrate and be one of many schools from more than 40 countries recognizing the importance of school milk on World School Milk Day.” Fuel Up to Play 60 provides an opportunity for students to collaborate with their peers to showcase what they have learned about “fueling up” with nutrient-rich foods and getting at least 60 minutes of physical activity every day. Students and teachers can view other schools’ submissions or get involved with the program by visiting www.Fu elUpToPlay60.com.
‘Walk for Autism’ event set Oct. 6 in Mankato
Silver Lake Leader photo by Alyssa Schauer
Storm damage
Last Thursday’s storm brought damage to the northern area of McLeod County. Corn fields were destroyed by strong winds and at the home of John and Rosie Shimanski, this 100-foot Ash tree cracked and fell, missing their pole shed by only a couple of feet. About 2 inches of rainfall were recorded, and winds were gusting between 17 and 33 miles per hour.
