Potential jail, security project could cost county up to $7 million
By Lori Copler Staff Writer Proposed security improvements to the McLeod County Courthouse have apparently evolved into an approximately $7 million project, prompting the Board of Commissioners to request County Attorney Mike Junge to petition the District Court to have money released from the Annamarie Tudhope estate to help cover the costs. Tudhope, former owner and publisher of the Glencoe Enterprise, left the bulk of her estate — between $4 and $5 million — to the county with the intent that the money be used for the construction of a new jail in Glencoe. But Junge said that petitioning the court for a ruling may be premature at this time since the County Board has yet to officially pass a motion to pursue a project, and suggested it first put into place a process for getting information out to the public about its proposal. Commissioner Sheldon Nies agreed. Nies said the County Board has heard a proposal from Wold Architects for an approximately $7 million project at a workshop session. Nies said that Wold should be invited to give its “dog and pony show” at a regular County Board meeting, the time and date of which should be publicized so that the public has a chance to listen in and offer comments. Nies noted that the County Board has been criticized for not publicizing its discussions on the recently adopted wheelage tax, which he said was the result of time restraints. “But we certainly don’t want that to happen with this here,” Nies said of the proposed jail security project. Junge also said that the County Board needs to adopt a plan because it will need to outline specifically to the court how the money would be spent so that a judge could determine if that intent is in keeping with the “spirit” of Tudhope’s bequest, which was specifically targeted toward the construction of a new jail. Junge indicated that the proposed plan will include the construction of a new, secure lobby that will be shared by the sheriff’s department and the jail, as well as other improvements to the jail. Those items may be in keeping with the intent of Tudhope’s bequest. Junge said he would liken Tudhope’s bequest to that of a charitable trust fund. By statute, any ruling on dispensing of the funds also has to go through the Attorney General’s office, Junge added. Nies said that any construc-

Koseks named grand marshals
By Alyssa Schauer Staff Writer was surprised. I didn’t expect it. They called us on July 14 and asked if Jo and I wanted it. I said we’d think it over,” Dale Kosek laughed after he and his wife, Jolene, were named Pola-Czesky Days grand marshals for 2013-14. Dale added that it was a bit difficult to keep a secret until it was time to be announced. “Everybody asks me because they think I know who it is. And somebody even said to me, ‘I know who it is. It’s you!’ And I just played along and said, ‘Yep.’ They didn’t believe me,” Dale said. Jolene said they had a busy weekend attending most of the Pola-Czesky events. “Saturday, we watched the kiddie parade, attended the kiddie games, went to the kids’ pedal pull and the tractor pull. We went down to the kickball fields and to polka Mass, where we marched with the royalty. Then we had the Queen’s Ball that night, too,” Jolene said. “And, of course, we sampled some beer and ate some good food,” Dale laughed. On Sunday, the couple attended the community worship service in Legion Park,
the queen’s luncheon, and they rode in the parade before going to the royalty coronation at 3 p.m. “It’s busy, but it was fun,” Jolene said. “I love how friendly everybody is, and it surprised me when so many came to congratulate us,” she added. Dale said it was fun “seeing a lot of people you don’t usually see” while riding in the parade route. “It’s amazing how many people it takes to make Pola-Czesky Days go,” Dale said. “I thought going to the kiddie parade and seeing all of the younger parents with their kids was fun. The women’s club did a really good job organizing that event,” Jolene said. She added that the kiddie games were “fun” too. “It was really cool watching the kids trying to pick up all those pizza boxes during one of the games,” she laughed. “The pedal pull was fun to watch, too. Those little guys have a lot of determination. Their little muscles were just a-pumpin’ to get that tractor to go,” Dale said. The Koseks said they were also impressed with the car show, and heard that it was one of the best car shows of Pola-Czesky
Days. “And we even went to the flea market. We had to get some of Mercedes’ (Nowak) world-class kolaches,” Dale laughed. The Koseks both grew up in the Silver Lake area — Jolene lived north of Henry’s Corner on a dairy farm and Dale lived south of Silver Lake. They have been married for 32 years and have three children, Lindsay, 28, Kelli, 24, and Tyler, 22. They are members of Holy Family Catholic Church in Silver Lake. Jolene is employed at Elkay Wood Products in Waconia and has worked there for 11 years. She enjoys going to garage sales and spending time with her daughters. When her daughters were younger, she was a Girl Scout leader. She is also a member of the Holy Family CCW and being a firefighter’s wife, she has assisted in many fire calls by finding truck keys, shoes and making sure the garage door is all the way up. Dale is in his 37th year as a public works supervisor for the city of Silver Lake. He enjoys fishing and spending his free time in a

Silver Lake seniors to meet
The Silver Lake Seniors Citizens Club will meet on Monday, Aug. 12, at 1 p.m., in the Silver Lake Auditorium.
By Jake Yurek
After our near perfect Pola-Czesky weather, it’ll be hard to top the rest of summer, but once again Mother Nature throws us some amazing weather. A slight warm-up with increased moisture got the week going and, as I write this, we got a nice batch of rain early Monday with another batch maybe Tuesday. The Tuesday one had some energy to it, so I’m hoping we escaped any severe stuff if the rain decided to hit us again. The weather from mid-week to the weekend will be dominated by a high pressure area that will make living in Minnesota feel like the right choice. Highs for the most part should be in the mid 70s with lows in the 50s and low humidity levels (perfect sleeping weather). Our only chance of rain will move quickly through the area Thursday late-afternoon and evening. At this point, weekend plans look great so definitely get out and enjoy! Taking a peek at the extended shows a slight warming trend with increased moisture early next week, but I really don’t want to look past the next few days! Have a great week, all!

Weather Quiz: When did people first start studying “weather?” Answer to last week’s question: What are average highs/lows and weather for August? Average highs and lows for the beginning of August are 83 and 63, respectively. By the end of the month we only move that to 78 and 59 degrees. August is not a month of real transition in Minnesota; that kicks up in September and October. Weather wise it’s fairly calm, too, with normal thunderstorms and the occasional severe bout. Remember: I make the forecast, not the weather!

Ridgewater instructor receives Fulbright award
Dr. Kathy Steffen, English instructor at Ridgewater College, has been awarded a Fulbright Scholar grant to teach at the Pereyaslav-Khmelnsytsky Hryhoriy Skovoroda State Pedagogical University in the city of Pereiaslav-Khmelnsytsky, a historic city in the Ukraine, for the fall 2013 academic year, according to the United States Department of State and the J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board. Steffen’s proposal is to teach two different education courses: one designed to share current trends in evaluation and assessment of teacher candidates and teacher-preparation programs; and one focused preparing every teacher across the curriculum to be a literacy teacher beginning in September 2012, although that plan could vary depending upon the needs of the institution. Why did Dr. Steffen pursue the opportunity? “I believe in the mission of Fulbright, and I believe in the power of education, so why not apply,” Steffen said. “My first choice was Ukraine, where my mother’s grandmother came from, since I know very little about the country and culture. I’m sure I’ll learn more than I can begin to imagine. My students here from Ukraine tell me I will love it there. “I am also interested in our global education initiative at Ridgewater and hope to make international contacts that will help me develop enriching educational experiences with an international flair for our students here,” Steffen said. Steffen is one of approximately 1,100 U.S. faculty and professionals who will travel abroad through the Fulbright U.S. Scholar Program in 201314. Steffen will be traveling to the Ukraine the end of August and teaching through the end of December. Following her fall semester in the Ukraine, she will be teaching a creative writing course in Costa Rica from the end of January to the end of March. Follow Steffen on the Ridgewater Blog at www. ridgewater.areavoices.com. “Kathy’s selection is testimony to her excellence in the classroom and her commitment and dedication to the teaching profession,” said Ridgewater President Douglas Allen. “Students at Ridgewater College have long known of her outstanding teaching ability,” Allen added. Recipients of Fulbright grants are selected on the basis of academic or professional achievement, as well as demonstrated leadership potential in their fields.

tion probably will not begin until next spring or summer, so the County Board has time to go through the proper process for adopting a project. Nies suggested inviting Wold to the County Board’s Sept. 17 meeting for an official presentation. Later in the morning, during a workshop session on longrange planning, the County Board also suggested that Wold look at potential improvements to the county’s other buildings. Commissioner Paul Wright suggested putting together a “package” of proposed improvements that will “address our needs for the next 30 years.” Wright noted that interest rates are expected to start ratcheting up, and the county could take advantage of the currently low bond interest rates. Commissioner Ron Shimanski said that having a “package” of proposed improvements could allow the county to implement the improvements in phases, rather than doing one major project. Nies suggested talking to Wold at the Sept. 17 meeting about what would be involved in a study of long-term building improvements, after Wold makes its presentation on the security and jail improvements.

May you never die and strand me
So guess what happened to me last week? Yes, you guessed it — the Jeep nearly broke down on busy Highway 5 outside of Chaska! I have to laugh because I’ve realized that this column has become a medium for all my vehicle problems, and even though I’ve been brought to tears with the stress of repairing the 1989 beast, I’m still quite fond of it. Last Thursday afternoon, I was headed to the doctor in Chaska, and on my way there, I was thinking how great it was to have a new tire, a full tank of gas, and a smooth ride all along Highway 212. I even tapped the dashboard in excitement and said, “I better treat you right and get you a car wash today.” I spoke too soon. After my appointment, it took a few turns of the key to fire up, but nothing unusual, until I heard an odd, gurgling sound, even over the loud rumbling of the absent muffler. I thought maybe from sitting in the hot sun that it was acting up, and headed out of the parking lot cautiously. At the first stoplight, I felt a little rumble as I stepped lightly on the gas, and made it to the second stoplight before turning on Highway 41. It was here that I realized something was terribly wrong. I hit the gas to accelerate up the hill, and the Jeep would hardly move. I gripped the steering wheel tightly and tapped the gas to putt-putt up the hill. As I drove along 41, I looked around to see if I could spot an auto repair shop nearby. I turned on Highway 5, which was a mistake at first, as it’s such a busy highway, and I could tell other travelers really didn’t appreciate follow-

ing me at 45 miles per hour in a no-passing zone. I took the next right and pulled over to search my phone for the nearest mechanic and say a few quick prayers. I was hoping I could make it to a repair shop at least so I wouldn’t be stranded in the middle of nowhere and/or have to pay towing. Of course, my phone had to take forever “searching for service” and when it found my location (between Chaska and Victoria), I typed in “auto repair shops near Victoria.” My phone, so intelligently, found repair shops in Victoria, CANADA. “ARG!” I yelled and cussed my phone royally. I was on the verge of tears and I knew that the Jeep didn’t have much time left to keep running. I specified “Victoria, MN” and found Victoria Autowerks along Highway 5. At one stoplight, I heard a man yell from his truck, “Hey! What’s with the Jeep!” Thankfully, the light turned green and I putted and scuttled along the highway at 30 miles per hour (the fastest the Jeep could move) on the verge of tears. By the grace of God, I made the four-mile journey to the repair shop on busy Highway 5, rolled into the parking lot and ran into the lobby, arms in the air and face beet-red. Luckily, the receptionist was understanding, and listened as I stammered through tears, “I - think---there-(sniff)-is something---wrong-I--(sniff)--can’t--drive--faster-than 45 miles per hour.” She said the guys could take a look and immediately I called Grandma Genny to let her know what happened. I can always count on her for a ride, and she kindly laughed and said, “I think it’s time for a new ride.” That cheered me up, and I sat back in the lobby and watched the guys try to figure out the Jeep. To my dismay, I watched one mechanic sit and turn the key over and over, only to hear nothing. After a closer examination, they found the fuel pump to be the culprit. Thankfully, I didn’t need a new one as they initially thought — it just needed to be rebuilt. I took a deep breath and waited for Grandma’s familiar red vehicle. That evening, she treated me to a pork patty meal at Music in the Park and reminded me that everything would be OK. As I chatted with friends and family and those of you who read the paper during Pola-Czesky Days, I realized how much of a character the Jeep really is, and without it, I don’t know what else I’d be writing about. So here’s to you, Jeep. May you never die (and leave me stranded.)

3-car accident claims life of Lester Prairie woman
Guadalupe Paredes Ruelas, 43, of Lester Prairie was killed in a July 26 accident in Young America Township, Carver County. According to Carver County Sheriff Jim Olson, deputies responded, along with Norwood Young America Fire and Rescue, Minnesota State Patrol and Ridgeview Ambulance, to a three-car motor vehicle crash on CSAH 33 at CSAH 34 in Young America Township at approximately 5 p.m. A vehicle traveling westbound on CSAH 34 failed to stop at the intersection of CSAH 33 and struck the rear of a vehicle traveling northbound on CSAH 33. After being struck, the northbound vehicle spun into the southbound traffic lane and was struck in the driver’s door by a southbound vehicle. The damage to the spinning vehicle was severe, and the driver, Ruelas, died as a result of injuries sustained in the crash. Olson said there were no obvious signs of trauma or severe injury to any of the other motorists involved in the crash, and all were transported to Ridgeview Medical Center for evaluation. There was no evidence or signs of impairment of the drivers involved in this incident, Olson said. The Minnesota State Patrol is reconstructing the crash and will be investigating the incident for review and possible charges by the Carver County Attorney’s Office, Olson said.

The men are employees of the liquor store and were just about to leave when the storm struck. Limbs were scattered about town although the community escaped the main brunt of the heavy winds and rain. Fire of undetermined origin destroyed remnants of an old barn being razed and set fire to a nearby egg storage cooling building about three o’clock Sunday morning at the Milton Totusek farm. The Silver Lake Fire Department was hampered in its efforts by an unusually large crowd of spectators gathered at the scene who blocked the road and, in general, handicapped the work of the firemen. Some damage was caused to fields by other than department personnel. The Silver Lake Fire Department has issued a warning, effective immediately, that arrest tickets will be issued to anyone who obstructs free and easy passage of fire department equipment or men.

No school referendum planned for November
But GSL building bond, project still in play
By Rich Glennie Editor Any talk of a November school building bond referendum is over, but discussion of the space needs at GlencoeSilver Lake is not. The conversation about facility needs will continue, according to GSL Superintendent Chris Sonju. At Monday night’s second community informational meeting in the high school auditorium, Sonju said deadlines for a November referendum have passed, and no public vote on a school addition building bond will take place this fall. But Sonju said the conversation about the facility needs for the district must continue, including talk of a building bond now in the range of $23 million to $25 million in the future. Before a handful of district residents, Sonju again went over the proposed options and why the building bond is needed. ***** The driving force for the building project, Sonju said, is space needs at Helen Baker Elementary School. But he said even if the Helen Baker space needs are addressed, there are space needs at the high school as well — including a need for more gymnasium space, more classrooms and more locker rooms. The proposed building project would meet those needs as well as the elementary needs in a one-campus approach, he stressed. The latest plan option would move the grades 7-8 classes to the east side of the high school to be closer to the specialty classes for those grades — art, music, industrial arts, etc. The other major change was to put a two-story wing for grades 2-3 on the north end of the Lincoln Jr. High instead of on the south side in the original plan. The rest of the original project would remain basically the same, with the main entry into the building coming from the north parking lot about where the entrance to the Panther Field House is now located. The new option would actually reduce square footage for the project, Sonju said, but because of increases in material costs, the latest estimates are closer to $25 million, instead of the original $18.6 million in 2011. Sonju said the construction of the Early Childhood Family Education/Early Childhood Special Education and Learning Readiness wing onto the Lincoln Jr. High is expected to be completed by the end of the year. In the meantime, those early childhood programs will be housed in two rooms at Lincoln Jr. High to start next school year and then move into the new wing after the Christmas break, Sonju said. That, in turn, will open up classroom space at Helen Baker. The special education program will move into the former ECFE rooms, and that will free up a classroom for a sixth section of first grade next school year. In talking to people about a building project, Sonju said many have emphasized “keep the costs down, but do it right.” He said that is the aim of the proposed project. The goal is to enhance the learning experiences for students, Sonju said, while being more efficient with one campus instead of two in Glencoe. The Helen Baker building would be closed under the proposed building plan. Another part of the building costs is improvements at the Lakeside building in Silver Lake with new windows and the remodeling of the special ed classroom there. “That building is not going anywhere,” Sonju stressed. “That building is in the (bonding) plan.” That work needs to be done at Lakeside building regardless, he added. “The needs haven’t changed,” Sonju said of the two referendum defeats in 2011. “We do a very good job of making things work,” he added about solving space problems at Helen Baker. “Maybe that’s our problem.” Sonju stressed the proposed project would address the district’s space needs well into the future by building in an extra section for each grade in order to “plan for future growth.” ***** But in order to get a project accomplished, Sonju said, “The public needs to get on board. Ultimately, it (the push for the project) needs to come from the community.” He said it took three attempts before the high school building bond was approved in the late 1960s. Now the high school is approaching its 44th year, and that is longer than the former Henry Hill building was used as a high school (36 years). “This is not a Cadillac of a building,” Sonju said of the building addition, but it meets the basic needs of the district. “We were told to go after what you need (for facilities), not any more.” Michelle Sander, district business manager, said people driving by the school buildings often say the buildings “look just fine. “But this building (high school) is 43 years old,” Sander said, and requires maintenance on an on-going basis with plumbing, electrical, roofs and boilers. Helen Baker was opened in 1953, Lincoln was opened in 1963 and the high school in 1970. Lakeside was renovated in the 1980s after a fire destroyed part of the school building. ***** Asked about the “stop gap” project for ECFE/SE, Sonju said the $1.9 million project was done with a lease levy that required no referendum. Of that total, about $600,000 in district funds were used. He said the lease levy is used for obtaining additional space for educational purposes. In essence, using the lease levy, “is leasing from ourselves in building new space.” GSL Board member Anne Twiss said she did not consider the ECFE/SE addition a “stop gap” project. “We will have a fantastic facility. It is really a part of the overall plan. It’s not a stop gap, it’s the beginning of a bigger project.” Sonju said the ECFE/SE addition gives the district’s youngest learners “a great start” with enough space to expand the program in a way it cannot now. Asked about interest rates, Sander said the interest rate of about 3.3 percent remains low, even though the cost of the project has risen. She said the original plan was for a 15-year bond. The new, more expensive plan would seek a longer bond of up to 30 years. She said while the actual tax impact on district properties will drop under a 30-year bond, the bond interest, over the longer time, will be more. When asked why the district does not expand and remodel the Helen Baker first and then “build what you need” at the junior-senior high, Sonju said the state may not allow the district to pour that kind of money into the Helen Baker facility. Twiss said even if the Helen Baker building is fixed, “we still do not have enough classroom space.” She said the proposed addition, “adds enough classroom space and efficiences, too.” Asked about the resale value of Helen Baker, Sonju said it is probably about the same as the old middle school (Henry Hill) — $1. He said the last thing the district wants is for the Helen Baker building to be boarded up and left to deteriorate. “But we can’t market it until we get a positive referendum,” Sonju said. He stressed the need to keep that building as an asset to the community, “not a liability.” Sander said the land is probably more valuable than the Helen Baker building. People need to keep in mind, Sander said, that the Helen Baker building was opened in 1953, and education has changed considerably since then. She pointed to the space needs for special education that now take up classrooms; the need for handicapped bathrooms that are not now available; the expansion of technology and the Helen Baker building still has electrical fuses. As to expanding Helen Baker to gain more classroom space, Sander said, like Lakeside in Silver Lake, it is landlocked. While there is some space at Helen Baker, it would require the loss of the school’s playground and its parking. “There is not a lot of free room.” Sonju said the conversation will continue about facility needs. “No one wants taxes raised, but I think this is a great investment with lots of benefits,” Sonju said.

Precipitation above 5-year average
According to the United States Department of Agriculture, National Agricultural Statistics Service’s July 19 report, precipitation totals since April 1 for Hutchinson were 3.8 inches above the norm and 1.3 inches above the norm the last month. Precipitation totals for St. Cloud were 3.4 above the norm since April 1 and 1.2 above the norm the last month. Statewide corn height was determined to be 44 inches tall compared with the five-year average of 59 inches. Many area corn fields are now starting in the tasseling stage. Soybeans height was determined to be 12 inches tall compared with the five-year average of 16 inches. Spring wheat percent that was headed was 87 percent headed compared with the five-year average of 85 percent. Locally, crop conditions are doing very well other than drowned-out spots from heavy rainfall in June. Moisture stress is starting to set in on some corn fields where less rainfall was received and in fields with lighter soil textures. Weed control has been a major concern in recent weeks due to the rainy weather. There are reports of soybean aphids in Minnesota, but levels have remained low thus far. A practice that can be considered after harvesting small grains, sweet corn and corn silage is planting a cover crop. A cover crop is any crop grown between two cash crops. Cover crops can even be worked into the corn-soybean rotation, especially when overseeded at the leaf yellowing

stage. Be sure to check with the Farm Service Agency and your crop insurance provider any time you intend to harvest or pasture a cover crop. The benefits of utilizing cover crops in a rotation are numerous. Cover crops can reduce soil erosion from wind and rain, prevent soil crusting, improve water absorption and infiltration and slow water and nutrients from leaving the landscape. Protecting and improving our soils can help to conserve and improve the soil in your field. Soil quality will be improved and more water will be available for your future cash crops. Choosing which species or mix to plant depends on your needs and goals, as well as the availability of the seed. There are a few main categories of cover crop species and those include grasses, legumes, and brassicas/mustards. Some of the utilized grasses include oats, triticale, millet and winter rye. The legumes commonly include clovers, field peas, alfalfa and vetches. The other category that is utilized is the brassicas/mustards. The most famous of these includes the tillage radish as well as canola, forage turnip and yellow mustard. The same rules on planting timing apply for cover crops as other agronomic crops. Cover crops need to be planted when soil conditions are favorable and rainfall is adequate for germination and establishment. The Midwest Cover Crop Council has numerous publications listed on its website, www.mccc.msu.edu, as well as a web-based cover crop decision tool to assist farmers in choosing an appropriate cover crop for their situation. University of Minnesota Extension researchers and educators worked with a committee of farmers, agencies and organizations to help growers make the best decisions about cover crops. Minnesota’s decision tool is available by utilizing the following link: http://z.umn. edu/covercropdecisiontool.

Fall activities eligbility meetings set
On Thursday, Aug. 8, Glencoe-Silver Lake will host required informational and eligibility meetings. The participants will meet with coaches and receive scheduled and athletic policies, and signed forms are required before a student can participate. According to Activities Director Kay Wilson, the participation fees will be collected beginning at 5 p.m. in the high school cafeteria on Thursday, Aug. 8. The meetings will be at 6 p.m. for grades 7-12 cross country, 7-12 boys and girls soccer, 7-12 girls tennis, grade 9-12 volleyball and 9-12 football. On Thursday, Aug. 15, meetings will be held at 6 p.m. in the cafeteria for grades 7-8 football, grades 7-8 volleyball, 9-12 cheerleading and grades 7-12 fall musical. “I encourage you to participate in the GSL activity program,” Wilson said. “Research has shown that students who are involved in extracurricular activities do better in school. If you haven’t been involved we encourage you to try something!” The Minnesota State High School League requires that all student athletes have a physical examination performed within the previous three years to be eligible for sports, Wilson added. For most students, this means when entering seventh and 10th grade • Students must bring their completed Minnesota State High School League form signed by a parent. Forms are available at the school or online at www.mshsl.org. The activity fees are listed on the letter and sent to students and parents. “If you need financial assistance or would like to make payment arrangements for the fee, contact Rebecca Dahl in the GSL District Office at 320-864-2494 or email: email@example.com,” Wilson said. “We want all students who want to be involved in activities to have the opportunity. Activity fees may also be paid online from the GSL website,” Wilson said. Wilson encourages students and parents to get to the cafeteria early. At 6 p.m., the general meeting will be held in the high school auditorium. The individual activity meetings will follow the general session. “You may register after the meeting as well to help with the congestion,” she added. “You may use either day (Aug. 8 or Aug. 15) as a makeup date if you cannot attend on the day your child’s activity is scheduled.

Concussion checks part of eligibility meetings
Marielle Gatenby, certified athletic trainer with Ridgeview Rehab Specialities, announced that she will be conducting Neuro-cognitive Baseline Testing using the ImPACT system on Aug. 9 at the eligibility meeting. ImPACT (Immediate PostConcussion Assessment and Cognitive Testing) is the first, most widely used, and most scientifically validated computerized concussion evaluation system, Gatenby said. “Given the inherent difficulties in concussion management, it is important to manage concussions on an individualized basis and to implement baseline testing and/or post-injury neurocognitive testing,” Gatenby said. “This type of concussion assessment can help to objectively evaluate the concussed athlete’s post-injury condition and track recovery for safe return to play, thus preventing the cumulative effects of a concussion.” The testing will take place as follows: Grades 9 and 11 volleyball, Aug. 8, at 4:45 p.m. (meet at computer lab Room 121). Grades 9 and 11, boys and girls soccer, Aug. 8, at 4:45 p.m. (meet at computer lab Room 121). Grades 9 and 11, football, Aug. 8, at 5:15 p.m. (meet at computer lab Room 121). “If you have already had a baseline in the last year with Ridgeview, you DO NOT need to test again,” Gatenby said. If not sure, contact Gatenby at Marielle.gatenby@ridgeview medical.org. If your son or daughter participates in GSL activities and you are not on this list for testing but would like a baseline, please contact Gatenby at marielle.gatenby@ridgeview medical.org. to discuss testing availability. Winter activities will test during the winter activities registration.
The August 21st McLeod County Chronicle will be delivered to the GSL School District!
