City Council appoints, then debates, role of its liaisons
By Alyssa Schauer Staff Writer At its annual meeting and first meeting of the year on Monday, the Silver Lake City Council started the evening with swearing-in ceremonies and reviewed city council appointments. City Clerk Kerry Venier swore in Mayor Bruce Bebo, who will be starting his sixth two-year term as mayor of Silver Lake, and Councilors Pat Fogarty and Nolan Johnson, who were all re-elected in November’s election. Fogarty will be serving a two-year term and Johnson will be serving a four-year term. Councilor Carol Roquette also was re-elected to a fouryear term, but was absent for Monday’s meeting. She will be sworn in at a future date. The City Council also discussed the liaisons appointed by Mayor Bruce Bebo for 2013. The Council liaisons will remain the same as 2012. “Everything is moving really smoothly between liaisons and departments heads. I feel there is good, open communication, so I am proposing that we keep liaisons as they are for this next year,” Bebo said during the December meeting. Councilors agreed, and at the Monday meeting, a resolution was passed to keep liaison appointments. The following were approved by the Council: • Official city depositories: First Community Bank and Minnesota Municipal Money Market Fund. • Official newspaper: Silver Lake Leader. • City attorney: Gavin, Olson, & Winters, LTD. • Acting mayor: Councilor Nolan Johnson. • Deputy weed inspector: Dale Kosek. • Civil defense director and emergency response coordinator: Chris Wawrzyniak. • City administration liaison: Bebo. • Public works liaison: Johnson. • Public safety liaison: Councilor Eric Nelson. • Municipal liquor dispensary liaison: Fogarty. • Community development and planning commision liaison: Roquette. • Assistant to all liaisons: Bebo. • Regular meeting dates and times: third Monday of each month at 6:30 p.m. and April 1, July 1, and Oct. 7 at 6:30 p.m. • Economic development authority: members of the city council. • Personnel committee: Bebo, Roquette and Department Head Dale Kosek. Council meeting etiquette and liaison descriptions also were reviewed and Fogarty asked about including pay in next year’s budget for councilors attending special meetings with their liaisons, such as the quarterly meetings scheduled for the Municipal Liquor Store. Venier emphasized that the liaisons are “not supervisory. “The liaisons were created to provide an individual link to each department. The goal was that each department head would meet with the liaison, and give them the report,” Venier said. He said liaisons shouldn’t have to attend the meetings. Venier felt that liaisons may then “overstep their boundaries” and that the department heads should be capable of relaying information to their employees and reporting back to the liaisons. Johnson disagreed. “I think it’s good for liaisons to attend these meetings, so we can put faces to names, and vice versa.” Bebo suggested that if liaisons attend such meetings, they should serve as “an observer.” Venier also reminded councilors that the department reports they give should also include their own observations. “They shouldn’t be regurgitated. It would be nice to include your observations in the reports, also,” Venier said. He asked that councilors also include their observations along with the typed reports given by department heads. “That was the initial intent of having liaisons meet with department heads,” Venier said. “I agree, and I disagree with

County Board: new commissioners, chair
By Lori Copler Staff Writer The McLeod County Board of Commissioners’ new year got off to an odd start Tuesday. Newly elected 1st District Commissioner Ron Shimanski was unable to attend because of illness, and therefore was not sworn in to his new position. That meant that current Commissioner Ray Bayerl, who thought his retirement would start with the adjournment of the 2012 business year on Tuesday, stayed around to vote during one more meeting. According to County Attorney Mike Junge, state statute says that an incumbent commissioner remains in office until his successor is administered the oath of office. While Shimanski was absent and unable to vote because he had not be sworn in, the County Board kept the new commissioner on speakerphone so he could listen in its discussions. And 5th District Commissioner Bev Wangerin, who also was the chair and was to have led the current board in finishing its 2012 business, also was absent and Vice Chair Kermit Terlinden led the County Board through that part of the agenda, until new went on to elect its 2013 chair and vice chair, with Wright, who is starting his second four-year term, getting the nod as chair, while Terlinden was re-elected vice chair. Because of the absence of Shimanski and because it was Christensen’s first day on the board, Nies suggested the County Board table committee assignments until its Jan. 22 meeting, adding that the newcomers should meet with County Administrator Pat Melvin to learn about the various committees to determine upon which they may be most interested in serving. In other business Tuesday, the County Board: • Heard that work on a bridge replacement on County Road 15 has been suspended and will resume in spring. Highway Engineer John Brunkhorst said the bridge is ready for the pouring of concrete, but the weather isn’t favorable for the job. The contractor did not complete the job on time, and has been fined since the anticipated completion date. Brunkhorst said the contractor could try to pour the concrete now, but the end result may be less than desirable and shorten the expected lifespan of the bridge, which will cost about $750,000. The highway department had hoped the bridge could be open to traffic before Christmas, but Brunkhorst said it will now likely not open until the first of May. Junge said that the daily fines levied against the contractor are no longer in effect. “The penalty stops with the date of the suspension,” said Junge. The work was suspended Dec. 20. Brunkhorst said the county will continue to have a priority of plowing the detour route. He also said that he had one complaint from a neighbor about the bridge not being open to traffic on time. “She understood the issue,” said Brunkhorst. “She doesn’t like it, but she understood why we stopped the work.” • Approved the McLeod County Chronicle as the official newspaper for the county for 2013. • Agreed to buy iPads for the commissioners to replace the used laptop computers they are currently using at meetings. • Agreed to trade in a 20year-old floor scrubber for a new one at a net cost of $5,700.
Charges against deputy dropped
Criminal charges against McLeod County Sheriff Deputy Mark Eischens have been dismissed. Eischens had been indicted by a grand jury Oct. 19 on four separate charges that resulted from the discharge of his weapon while he and other members of an emergency response team were executing a search warrant in April 2012. Eischens faced a felony charge of assault in the second degree — dangerous weapon and a felony charge of possessing a dangerous weapon and discharging a firearm that endangered safety. He also faced a misdemeanor charge of assault in the fifth degree — inflict or attempt bodily harm; and a misdemeanor charge of dangerous weapons — recklessly handle or use. The case had been scheduled for a jury trial Monday in McLeod County District Court, but the trial was cancelled after the charges were dropped. Sibley County Attorney David Schauer, who was the prosecutor because Eischens is a county employee, said in a court filing that “the state does not believe the case can be proved beyond a reasonable doubt.” Schauer’s filing dismissed the charges, with approval from a district court judge. According to court documents, the team had made entry, and Eischens heard a “thud” or a “bang” just as Harry Lee Ondracek, 58, of rural Glencoe, had come around a corner and emerged into view. Eischens asserted that he thought Ondracek had fired a weapon, and fired his in return in self-defense. It was later determined that Ondracek was unarmed. Ondracek was taken to a hospital for treatment of injuries sustained, and later released and booked into the McLeod County Jail on a fifth-degree charge of possession of a controlled substance. Eischens has been on paid administrative leave pending the outcome of the court proceedings.
Paul Wright, chair 5th District Commissioner Jon Christensen was allowed to assume his seat for the commencement of the 2013 session. Along with Christensen, incumbents Paul Wright, 3rd District, and Sheldon Nies, 4th District, who were re-elected in November, took their oaths of office and resumed their seats at the table. Shimanski will be sworn in sometime this week by County Auditor/Treasurer Cindy Schultz. The County Board then
Glencoe hospital imposes visitor restrictions because of flu
Glencoe Regional Health Services has implemented visitor restrictions due to the recent outbreak of influenza-like illnesses. Visitors will be limited to family members and to a maximum of two visitors per hospital patient. Individuals who are ill are being asked to reconsider their visit. If visits are necessary and visitors are sick, they must wear a mask. In addition, children under the age of 5 will not be allowed to visit patients or long-term care residents until the outbreak of influenza-like illnesses subsides. South Central Minnesota continues to see high volumes of patients with influenza and others with flu-like symptoms prompting all hospitals in the region to announce they are adopting the same visitor restrictions at each of their facilities. Counties impacted by the flu outbreak include Blue Earth, Brown, Faribault, Le Sueur, Martin, Meeker, McLeod, Sibley and Waseca. “We realize these restrictions may be inconvenient, but we believe they are necessary to protect the health of our patients, residents, staff and visitors,” said Jon Braband, President and CEO. In addition to enforcing these restrictions, GRHS would like to remind the public that each of us can help reduce the spread of influenza and other illnesses by taking a few simple steps, washing your hands often, covering your cough, and staying home if you are sick. It is also not too late to get vaccinated against the flu. GRHS has both injectable flu vaccine and flu mist available. To schedule a vaccination-only appointment, call 320-8647816 or 1-800-869-3116.

you. I can honestly say that I thought the liaisons and department heads did an excellent job this year,” Bebo said. He said department heads shared their written reports, and councilors added their concerns and observations to the reports. Nelson agreed. “I saw everybody had a report, but everyone also had their personal thoughts and concerns. That told me we were doing our jobs,” Nelson said. ***** The Council also discussed the duties of the community development liaison. Bebo said part of the duty is to “work with county boards, township boards and other development boards to ensure that growth and development opportunities are capitalized upon. “I’d like to see somebody keep a pulse on things. I think the county is moving on that county shed. Something we’ve never really had is a constant dialogue with a county repre-
sentative,” Bebo said. Councilors agreed and Johnson thought it would be a good idea to invite Commissioner Ron Shimanski to attend Council meetings. Bebo also suggested that Roquette be put on an e-mail list with the county and township boards if possible, so she may receive updates and agendas of future meetings to have an idea of upcoming projects. **** In open discussion, Bebo reported that the Silver Lake Civic Association is working on improving the auditorium. “They started taking steps last year, when they replaced the ceiling tiles, and this last Saturday, they went to the Lake Marion Ballroom auction and purchased tables and chairs to replace the booths,” Bebo said. He said the goal is to update and remodel the auditorium. He added that the Silver Lake Lions are also working to make improvements to the facility.

How are the resolutions coming?
How are the New Year resolutions coming? I read this quote once that said, “May the New Year bring you courage to break your resolutions early! My own plan is to swear off every kind of virture, so that I triumph even when I fall!” I had to laugh at that one. It sounds like something I could live up to. I don’t make resolutions that are unattainable, but inevitably, it seems that every January of a new year is strong and successful, as I plow into the year full steam ahead, but by Feb. 10 or so, my schedule gets busy with meetings and meetings and meetings, and some weather disaster like a blizzard sets in and then I have no motivation to do anything. Oh, who am I kidding? By Jan. 10 I am pooped out from trying so hard to accommodate my resolutions into a busy schedule that I forget what they even were. This year, I’ve been so sidetracked with the holiday schedules and deadlines and family get-togethers, that I didn’t even get the chance to make any New Year’s resolutions. I know it’s not yet too late to make a few resolutions, as we round off our second week in January, and a few goals for 2013 have crossed my mind. And you know what? I think writing them down and putting them in print will hold me more accountable. Not to mention, it gives the few of you who read this section the power to hold me to them throughout the year, so I better work at them. But this year, I’m going to try something a little different with my resolutions. I usually make promises to myself that surround the popular subjects, like health and finance and organization, but I need to be more specific.
The Travel Section
By Alyssa Schauer
Each year, I promise myself I’m going to be more healthy, and every year, I work at this in spurts. Summers are usually productive, with the warmer weather, and I’m outside doing something active nearly everyday. But when the colder weather comes around, in October or so, I find comfort in staying on the couch and eating obscene amounts of potato soup. Then of course, Thanksgiving and Christmas are right around the corner, and I indulge in pecan pie, sweet potato casseroles, and all varieties of cookies on the holiday treat table. It’s embarrassing, really. And so, in order to keep up a routine of healthy habits throughout the entire year, and not just spring and summer, I’ve decided to register for a few 5K races. Lucky for me, there are Thanksgiving “turkey trots” and “polar dashes” in the winter, so that my indulgences may be offset by physical activity. I think I should maybe tell my goals to my grandmothers, so that they are more inclined to send me home with carrots and apples instead of pudding and pies. Another favorite resolution of mine is to organize my finances. Each year, I tell myself I’m going to put away a little bit of each pay check and build up my savings account, but then I see the cutest pair of shoes at Target or I find summer dresses that I just have to have, and my savings go to pot. Most of you know this about me, and as the title of this column suggests, I love to travel. And so, I have opened a savings account at another bank specifically dedicated for a travel fund, so that I can adventure off to a new place this year. And I can use this column as accountability to report back. My final resolution this year revolves around organizing my belongings. As I dug through boxes upon boxes stacked in my closets and under my bed looking for check blanks, I realized I keep everything. I mean, EVERYTHING. I found a movie ticket receipt from 2009 for the movie “Avatar,” an unopened box of fish hooks, bobby pins, broken pencils, a Christmas ornament, corroded pennies, a clothespin, an empty white-out bottle, photographs from high school, and yarn in a small cardboard box, filled with other miscellaneous junk. Talk about a hoarder. So I’m going to ring in the New Year by cleaning up and getting rid of junk. I think I’ll start by taking down my Christmas tree and putting away the Christmas decorations. And I should probably get rid of the box of cookies on the table and put all loose change I find into a glass jar labeled “Travel Fund.” Check back with me in July and we’ll see how everything is coming. Good luck to all on their own resolutions!

2 snowmobilers hurt; airlifted by Life Link
A two-snowmobile accident, reported at 3:17 p.m., Saturday, injured two people seriously enough to call in the Life Link Air Ambulance to transport the injured to the Twin Cities. According to the McLeod County Sheriff’s Office, the two snowmobiles crashed into a drainage ditch in the area of Highway 212 and Hilton Avenue, west of Glencoe. One snowmobile, a 1999 Polaris XC700, was owned and driven by Thomas Anthony Hedin, 33, of Glencoe. The second snowmobile, a 2006 Artic Cat Crossfire, was owned and driven by Joshua Scott Jeppesen, 30, of Brownton. Both individuals were transported by ambulance to the Glencoe Regional Health Services and then airlifted by Life Link Air Ambulance. The snowmobiles were removed from the scene, and the deputies cleared with reports. Also responding were the Minnesota State Patrol, Glencoe Police Department, the Glencoe Fire Department and the Glencoe Ambulance Service.

Silver Lake Leader
By Kevin Simonson Special to The Leader On the strength of seven individual champions and 20 total pins, the GSL/LP wrestlers have brought home the championship trophy from the Ogilvie Lions Invitational for the second straight year. Panther wrestlers went 27-10 in matches wrestled and scored 20 pins while giving up only 4. Only seven teams participated in the 33rd annual event, and GSL/Lester Prairie was the only team to fill all 14 weights. Second-place SartellSt. Stephen used 13 wrestlers. Panthers earning championship medals were Jacob Jewett (106), Michael Donnay (120), Brandon Richter (126), Nate Tesch (138), Mitchell Hartwig (152), John Williams (170) and Dalton Clouse (195). Jewett, a second seed, won his first two matches each by fall; then jumped out to an 111 lead against top-seeded Caleb Kreitter of Crosby-Ironton in the championship match. Jewett, who settled for a 13-2 victory, also was recognized as being the tournament’s outstanding wrestler. Donnay opened his title run with a 15-0 technical fall — his 60th career win at the varsity level. He won his final two matches by fall, in 24 seconds and 49 seconds. After receiving a bye in the

GSL/LP 195-pounder Dalton Clouse, top, muscled his way to a pin of Waconia’s Zach Christians last Thursday in quarterfinals, Richter won 160 in the semifinals — for his 50th career win. In the finals, Richter prevailed 8-6. Also going 2-0 on the day and winning their weight classes were Tesch, Hartwig and Williams. Tesch won by fall in 1:20 and by a 3-1 decision in his title match. Hartwig won by fall in 1:33 before disposing of Bryce Ortloff from Deer River 9-1 in the title bout. Williams pinned both of his opponents to win his title. Times of the falls were 1:09 and :58. Clouse hardly worked up a sweat on the day, as he wrestled a total of 2 minutes, 33 seconds — his pin times were 1:02, 1:15 and :16. His quick pin in the finals propelled him to being named the wrestler with the most pins in the least amount of time. Filling in for the Panthers at 220 was eighth-grader Peyton Sell, who placed second with a
Glencoe. Clouse helped seal a 42-30 Panthers’ victory over their conference and section rivals. 1-1 record. Sell won his semifinal by fall; the first contested victory of his varsity career.

Polzin was recognized at the end of the tournament for having the fastest fall (13 seconds) on the day. That came in his match for third place. Fourth-place finishers for the Panthers were Dalton Kosek (145) and Martin Lezama (182). Each went 1-2 on the day with the wins being by fall. Chris Lemke, (285) finished fifth after going 1-2. The highlight of the day for Lemke was winning his first competitive varsity match. This was in the match for fifth place. Lemke had lost by pin to this same wrestler earlier in the day.

GSL girls’ team tops Luverne, New Ulm
By Lee Ostrom Sports Editor After starting the season with six straight losses, the GlencoeSilver Lake girls’ basketball team now operates with a three-game winning streak. The Panthers got to 2-6 by downing Luverne, 39-26, Dec. 28 in Marshall; then won again, 51-29, last Saturday at New Ulm. Defense was a key factor in each victory. GSL limited Luverne to only eight second-half points. Eight days later, GSL outscored New Ulm 30-6 in the first half of the teams’ Jan. 5 clash. As a result, the Panthers took a 3-6 mark into last night’s Wright County Conference home date with Dassel-Cokato. GSL is at Mound-Westonka on Friday, home against NYA Central (6 p.m. tip) Saturday, and at New London-Spicer on Tuesday, Jan. 15. Decorated forwards Clarissa Ober and Stephanie Klockmann led Panther scorers and rebounders in GSL’s most recent games. Against Luverne, Ober tallied 16 points and grabbed 16 boards, while Klockmann, a junior, added 13 points and 11 rebounds. At New Ulm, Klockmann topped all scorers with 18 points. She also took down six boards. Ober added eight points and 11 rebounds. A 6-1 senior, Ober also blocked five shots and got credit for seven steals in the two games. Against Luverne, GSL had an 11-to-11 ratio of assists and turnovers. Klockmann and guard Maddie Monahan were charted for three assists apiece. At New Ulm, Monahan added six points, six boards, six steals and four assists, while Samantha Lange also tallied six points. In all, no fewer than 10 Panthers tallied at least two points against the Eagles.

GSL boys fall 66-55 at home
By Rich Glennie Editor lagued by foul trouble, missed scoring opportunities, turnovers and poor free throw shooting, the Glencoe-Silver Lake Panthers dropped a 66-55 non-conference decision to the visiting Jordan Hubmen Saturday afternoon. Ethan Masss and Travis Rothstein, the Panthers starting guards, were both in foul trouble midway into the first half. In a foul-plagued game, Jordan was having the same trouble. It was a matter of whose depth would prevail, or whose star would stay in the game. It also boiled down to who could make free throws. Jordan won on all counts. In the end, it was Jordan’s Brian Hartman who propelled the Hubmen to victory. Maass, who sat out a large portion of the first half and picked up his fourth foul early in the second, re-entered the game and pulled GSL within 51-50 with a basket with 4:04 left to play. But Hartman and the Hubmen came right back. The junior guard hit a three-point shot at the top of the circle to give Jordan a 54-50 edge. Later, Hartman drove the lane for a basket and two free throws in a span of 29 seconds that sealed Jordan’s victory. The physical game was closely called. Both teams were in the bonus early in each half. Jordan simply made more

free throws down the stretch. *** — GSL made 23 of the 77 shots it attempted from the field, an icy 29 percent. The Panthers were 3 of 14 (21 percent) from beyond the 3-point arc. Greg Ober, a senior guard, was 6-for-11 and senior forward Trenton Draeger 4-for-6. But Maass was 5-for-13, Reed Dunbar 4-for-18 and Keaton Anderson 2-for-13. — At the free-throw line, GSL went 6 of 16 (37.5 percent). Ober was 4-for-6 and Brandon Ebert was 2-for-2. Collectively, everyone else was 0-for-8. Jordan made 16 free throws and missed 16 free throws. Rebounds went 41-37 in Jordan’s favor. Anderson led GSL rebounders with 11 boards. Dunbar pulled down seven. He also got credit for four assists and a couple of steals. Ober finished with a Panther-high 16 points, to go with three steals, two assists and four boards.

Here are a few tips on writing a good classified word ad:
1. Do not use the fewest words possible. 2. Keep in mind that the more you tell, the more you sell! 3. Remember, the classified section plays to a parade, not an audience. Each time you run an ad, different readers come into the market...new needs are developed between weekly editions by readers. 4. Is the lead word or words aimed at a specific audience? Let the prospect know you’re talking to him. 5. Benefits are what make people buy things. Give the reader a good reason to buy your merchandise. 6. Make sure that your copy is complete with enough details so that the reader can pick up the phone and call you. 7. Make your ad read like a conversation. Read it aloud to see how it sounds.
Be sure to include your name and address or telephone number in ad.
8. Most newspaper readers are interested in price. Make sure that your prospect knows what your prices are. 9. Each ad should encourage the reader to take action. It’s the main part of closing your sale.

GSL Knowledge Bowl teams in top 4
On Saturday, Jan. 5, Glencoe-Silver Lake Knowledge Bowlers competed at Lac qui Parle Valley High School in western Minnesota, and placed in the top four at the meet. “It had been a month since the last meet for the junior varsity and varsity, and they were ready,” said GSL coach Vicky Harris. “Lac qui Parle Valley had decided to add some unusual ‘nerdy’ questions about science fiction series like ‘Star Trek’ and ‘Doctor Who,’ TV shows like ‘The Big Bang Theory’ and video games. This, and an invitation to wear costumes, made the meet interesting,” Harris added. There were 13 teams in the varsity division from nine schools. The two GSL teams placed in the top four. Willmar and Hutchinson started in first and second places with written scores of 49 and 45 and competed for the whole meet in Room 1. Willmar won the meet with 104 points. GSL’s teams began the meet in Room 2 with slightly lower written scores (44 for GSL 1, 40 for GSL 2). After round 1, GSL 1 moved up to Room 1. It competed in Room 1 for the next two rounds, while GSL 2 stayed in Room 2. However, the scores of the top four teams remained similar, and for round four the two GSL teams traded places. GSL 2 finished in second with 100.5 points, while Hutchinson and GSL 1 ended tied for third with 100 points, “so these three teams were extremely close,” Harris said. The members of the second place GSL 2 were Lindsey Becker, Patrick Fehrenbach, and Jacob Wawrzyniak. Third place GSL 1 members were Joe Fehrenbach, Mark Broderius and Chandler Swift. The junior varsity division included 13 teams from 10 schools. GSL’s team began in Room 3 with a written score of 31, but steadily moved up during the meet. For rounds two and three, it was in Room 2, where it won each round, then went to Room 1 for the final round. Harris said the Atwater-Cosmos-Grove City (ACGC) team in Room 1 was quite dominant for the whole meet and ended with 96 points. GSL finished second with 79 points, while Benson teams finished in third and fourth places with 74.5 and 74 points. The GSL team included Cedric Winter, Kyle Beck, Brent Duenow and Oakley Clark. The junior high division was quite large, with 25 teams from 14 schools. The meet was won by Hutchinson with 129 points. Willmar ended in second with 112.5, and GSL 1 finished third with 110.5 points. GSL 1 had never competed in Room 1, but stayed in Room 2 for most of the meet, “doing quite well there,” Harris said. This team included Kaitlyn Arthur, Mitch Beneke, Maddie Kuehn, Jake Vasek, Alexis Sanchez and Theresa Siers. GSL 2 began in Room 2, dropped to Room 3, then moved up to Room 2 and finally Room 1. But in the final round the team earned the fewest points. It finished in seventh with 104.0 points. Harris said the fourththrough seventh-place teams were within one and a half points of each other. The team members of GSL 2 were Jenna Lokensgard. Lindsay Wedin, Jake Fehrenbach, Robin Swift, Katie Twiss and Jack Gepson. GSL 3 competed in Room 3 for two rounds, then dropped to Room 5 and finished the meet in 18th with 81 points. This team included Connor Heuer, Cora Kuras, Marisa Luchsinger, Maggie Petersen, Rachel Reichow and Dini Schweikert. Several GSL Knowledge Bowlers won prizes for unusual costumes. Robin Swift won gold for being dressed as a pencil. Knowledge Bowl will continue its busy schedule with a meet in Willmar on Saturday, Jan. 12, and another at Dawson-Boyd on Saturday, Jan. 19. In addition, the junior high teams will be competing at Marshall on Wednesday, Jan. 9, in a Region 6 and 8 meet.
By Jake Yurek
This week’s forecast will be quite difficult as a warm, then active, weather pattern sets up over the upper Midwest. Warning: forecast confidence is low as computer models are having a very tough time deciding what is actually going to happen. We’ll start the week out very warm, producing a not-toooften-seen January thaw. Highs should make it well into the 30s, with some areas of southern Minnesota pushing perhaps to 40. This is all ahead of what basically amounts to a double-barreled storm system sliding its way into the area late week. The first impulse will come Thursday into early Friday. Right now, computers are keeping most of the precipitation in the form of rain as things will be too warm in all layers of the atmosphere to get snow. As the precipitation moves on, there could be a mess, however, with rain, freezing rain, sleet and snow not out of the question. The second, and possibly more powerful storm for us, should enter the area by very late Friday into Saturday. There will be enough cold air with this one to make everything snow, but it’s hard to pinpoint almost a week out who the bullseye will be on. My advice about the end of this forecast … stay tuned to more up-to-date forecasts, especially if you have weekend plans! Behind the storms, COLD air will move back in so get out and enjoy the warmth while it is here. There is a very cold pool of air building in northern Canada and a piece is wiggling its way free, so we could be in for some of the coldest air of the season by late next week if things pan out. Have a great week! Ma dobry weekendem Mit dobry vikend Wednesday night — Lows 18-24, clear. Thursday — Highs 32-38; lows 26-32; rain, then freezing rain/snow/sleet.

Weather Quiz: What were the top five weather stories for 2012 in Minnesota? Answer to last week’s question: It was a year of ups and downs. We started out near normal and then went very warm and wet early. We proceeded to end the year warm, but the rain faucet turned off, and we are currently in the middle of a moderate to severe drought. In the end, the Twin Cities tied for the warmest year on record, with St. Cloud coming in with its second warmest year ever. Can’t wait to see what this year brings! Remember: I make the forecast, not the weather!
