Charges filed in year-old fatal accident BY BILL STICKELS III EDITOR@COUNTYSTAR.COM

DEMEULES FAMILY | SUBMITTED

Antonio DeMeules

The driver in a fatal accident that occurred in Isanti County in September 2015 has now been charged with failure to stop for a collision causing injury or death. Adam Maki, 31, was charged by the Isanti County Attorney’s Office with the felony on Wednesday, Nov. 23. According to County Attorney Jeff Edblad, the ongoing investigation has now yielded sufficient evidence for

the charges. “Based upon a review of the follow-up investigation conducted by the Isanti County Sheriff’s Department which included additional information developed during the follow-up investigation and submitted in their follow-up report, I believe that there is now sufficient evidence for filing the felony complaint alleging failure to stop for a collision causing injury or death,” said Edblad. The accident, which made statewide news at the time, involved the death of 15-year-old Antonio DeMeules on 285th Avenue near

Isanti. At the time of the accident, DeMeules was reportedly skateboarding on the road after sunset when he was struck by a white pickup that failed to stop for the accident. Maki turned himself in 24 hours after the accident after security camera footage from the area identified the color and type of vehicle involved in the accident. At the time of turning himself in, Maki claimed he thought he had hit some sort of animal. SEE CHARGES, PAGE 5

Funeral home discussion leads to reprimand

North Branch hopes to light up the town

BY JEN KOTILA NEWS@COUNTYSTAR.COM

Everyone loves a walk or ride through a twinkling, colorfully lit holiday wonderland, and the North Branch Beautification Association is doing their part to bring that joy to North Branch. The nonprofit has started the Light Up North Branch Project with a Go Fund Me page to raise money to install holiday decorations on the streets of the city. As of Tuesday, over $1,750 had been raised toward the goal of $2,500. Phase 1 of the project will consist of lighting all 83 streetlight poles on Highway 95 with over 12,450 soft white LED Christmas lights from County Market on the west to Grand Avenue on the east. The lights have already been purchased and are being installed. The association will be reimbursed

The city of Isanti’s Planning Commission will be reprimanded following the disclosure it violated open meeting laws after its Nov. 9 planning commission meeting. What led up to the discovery of the alleged violations was a lengthy discussion regarding a resolution approving an amendment to the zoning ordinance, which the council ultimately approved without the planning commission’s recommendation that funeral homes be permitted within the district. The ordinance establishes the types of businesses allowed along the Minnesota Highway 65 corridor in order to make the highway a gateway into the city and attract travelers from the highway, as well as attract commercial and industrial businesses that will lower property taxes for homeowners. Currently, Strike Funeral Home lies within the district, and the city’s recommendation was that funeral homes not be permitted within the district. It was at the end of the discussion regarding the zoning ordinance that city council and planning commission SEE ZONING, PAGE 8

Barfknecht-Conley sworn in BY BILL STICKELS III EDITOR@COUNTYSTAR.COM

During a previous meeting, the Cambridge city council had decided that whoever won the two-year seat in the special election would take their place on the council at the next regular meeting after the election, rather than waiting until the beginning of 2017. So, at the beginning of the Nov. 21 meeting, Kirsten Barfknecht-Conley, who won the special election

by a narrow margin over current council member Michael Stylski, was sworn in as the newest member of the city council. Perhaps as a “welcome aboard” gift to Barfknecht-Conley, her first council meeting was short with no major decisions required on the three agenda items that were attended to. The first item was the renewal of 16 tobacco licenses and three 3.2 SEE COUNCIL, PAGE 5

Phase 3 is to be determined by association members, and could be anything from lights on buildings to adding newer, holiday-themed lit decals on all light poles.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

SUBMITTED

Greg Shaleen, a 10-year fundraiser, awaits trial in the recent Hunger Relief Bail or Jail event held in North Branch to benefit Family Pathways food shelves.

Bail or Jail raises over $30,000 To the editor, Family Pathways Hunger Relief Bail or Jail Fundraiser “suspects” and sponsors in East Central Minnesota raised $25,000 for Family Pathways Food Shelves. Fundraisers in Polk County, Wis., raised $5,500, resulting in a $30,500 grand total. Family Pathways can’t thank these fundraising “suspects” enough. This year’s mock court hearings were held at The Oak Inn in North Branch and Famous Dave’s in Forest Lake. Judges Kirsten Kennedy, Stev Stenger and Curt Liljenburg committed many ruthless suspects. Judge Stev Stenger resisted attempts at bribery. All suspects have been found guilty of “Crimes of Compassion.” Congratulations to Greg Shaleen of The Shaleen Team – Edina Realty and his commitment to fundraising for the last 10 years! This is an incredible achievement and Family Pathways appreciates Greg’s support. The participation of these generous jailbirds, sponsors, judges and jailors makes a huge impact in making sure Family Pathways’ Food Shelves are adequately stocked during the holiday and winter months. Even small donations have the potential to improve a person’s quality of life. Our pocket change becomes powerful when pooled together. Family Pathways has a mobile food truck and food shelves in Chisago City, Forest Lake, North Branch, Cambridge, Pine City, Sandstone, Onamia, St. Croix Falls and Frederic, Wis., plus a food partnership in Mora. Last year, Family Pathways served 18,922 people and distributed over 2.3 million meals. Caitlin Netzer Family Pathways, North Branch

Cub Scouts thankful for fun fall outing

To the editor, On behalf of the Cambridge Cub Scout Pack 235, a most sincere thank you goes out to John and the Windmill Acres crew. They are always welcoming and adaptive to all our needs. In October 2016 the Cub Scouts and their families enjoyed many activities provided by the farm – hayrides, corn maze, animal feeding, followed by a campfire with hot chocolate, s’mores and hot dog roast. We look forward to this event every year and future ones, like camping, on the Windmill Acres grounds. Darrick Wotachek, Cub Scout Master Carri Levitski, Assistant Cub Scout Master

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Trio Wolf Creek changes student’s life To the editor, My daughter is a sophomore at Trio Wolf Creek Distance Learning Center and this is her story: Cheyenne has Asperger’s syndrome, a form of high-functioning autism. She previously was in a traditional type of school until 8th grade. In traditional school she was dealing with bullying issues, and we were not happy with the lack of action on bullying and lack of accommodations and technology available. Cheyenne was becoming more and more reclusive at school and dreaded going even though she was a good student. I decided a change was needed for her sake, but I didn’t want to have her lose social skills in an exclusively online school format. A coworker suggested I look into Trio Wolf Creek’s program. Trio Wolf Creek’s mix of independent online work and having the option of campus days twice weekly to work on social skills has been incredible. I couldn’t believe how individualized her learning and graduation plan is. I had never experienced that level of personalization in traditional school. Her learning manager Martha has been amazing with suggesting different technology to try. The school is amazing with providing online tutoring and one-on-one learning options. If she is stuck on a topic, Cheyenne knows all it takes is an e-mail to the instructor to schedule campus time for oneon-one or an online session.

As a mother it is reassuring to me that with an email or text I have access to her learning manager to touch base on how she is doing, or if I have a question or concern, the staff responds very quickly to communications. Cheyenne has progressed from a withdrawn student that would never go to lunch or activities, to being active on student council and enjoying lunch with friends. Her grades have never been better, and she has actually been able to progress past some of her more difficult educational needs. I truly believe if we had stayed in traditional school she would not be the student she is today. If you are looking for a different option for your student but don’t care for exclusively online options, I highly recommend looking into Trio Wolf Creek, check out the website and take a tour of the school. Sheryl Davidson Isanti

“Pippin” an enriching experience for playgoer To the editor, The fall musical “Pippin” presented by the Cambridge-Isanti drama department was definitely not a Christmas show, but maybe, in a very special way, it really was. From the moment I took my seat in the Hardy Center, I was surrounded by the magic of the moment even before the curtain was raised. Magicians dressed in beautiful costumes surrounded us with their charms and distractions, girls floated on silken

ribbons from the ceiling, and the stage was set by Director Kelly Fairchild-Fahrni for a very, very special evening. I failed to read the director’s notes until after the production so when I finally understood the story and the implications, it was like an epiphany moment. Hurrah! This is man. This is us. This is me. Surrounded always by the hoopla of the world, tempted by the distractions of the world, always searching, as Pippin did, but never fully comprehending that the fulfillment was right in front of us ... love. And so it connects with Christmas. The malls are playing Christmas music even before Thanksgiving, and we are all rushing and buying into the mood of searching for just the right everything. We are Pippin. And again the everything is right in front of us. It is the birth of Christ. To you, Kelly Fairchild-Fahrni, to your team, to your wonderful cast and behind-the-scenes people, thank you for an awakening moment and an enriching experience. The play was so finessed and so artfully presented that I felt it was a true experience that lived for a long bit after. And the touching moment, and really scary moment at the end when the young boy turned and picked up the “glammer” of the left glove and was surrounded by the “evil ones,” was provoking. Will he, too, be caught by the “rush?” Oh, so well done! So very, very well done! Della Theis Cambridge

off-sale liquor licenses. According to City Administrator Lynda Woulfe, all applications were properly filled out and all of the businesses applying were in compliance with all regulations and had all paid their taxes. The council approved all of the renewal requests. Next up was an abatement of a public nuisance at the address of 223 5th Ave SW. According to Carri Levitski, who authored the resolution, a fire at that residence in June 2015 made the residence uninhabitable. After the original house was removed, an open foundation was left, which has raised multiple complaints of being a blight and safety hazard. According to the report, the homeowner

originally requested that he rebuild on the current foundation; however, an inspection yielded many structural issues that would have to be met. Since then, the property has gone untouched. Levistski stated that multiple attempts to contact the property owner have gone unreturned, so the city has moved forward with abatement proceedings. The foundation at the residence will be removed and the remaining hole will be filled at a cost of $7,400, which will be billed to the homeowner. The final item on the agenda was a request to designate one side of Horseshoe Drive as no parking. According to Public Works/Utilities Director Todd Schwab, the road, located just

north of Highway 293 and intersecting with South Main Street at two points, is only 28 feet wide. If cars are parked on both sides of the street, it is very difficult if not impossible for larger vehicles such as school buses and emergency vehicles to make it through between the parked cars. The problem has become progressively worse as there has been an increase in the number of overflow cars from the two apartment complexes adjacent to Horseshoe Drive to both the north and south. Additionally, whenever it snows, cars from those two apartments are moved onto Horseshoe Drive in order to plow their parking lots. Schwab stated he has talked with the owner of the only property that abuts the road on

CHARGES: Driver facing 3 years in jail FROM PAGE I

Originally, no charges were pressed against Maki as it was believed that DeMeules was skateboarding down the center of the road, as well as wearing dark clothing. Investigators at the time said they “believe this is a terrible accident and not done with malicious intent.” Recently, however, the accident was brought back into the headlines when Twin Cities-based KMSP-TV aired an investigative report alleging that local officials hadn’t done due diligence in conducting their investigation. The story, which aired on Nov. 10, interviewed DeMeules’s family, and

brings up evidence that the family claims they themselves had turned up, including the fact that Maki was on his cellphone at the time of the accident and later did a search for an app that would enable him to listen to the local police scanners. At the very least, the family claimed in the story, Maki should have been charged with manslaughter based on the infamous “ignorance loophole” that was revealed in the well-known Amy Senser case in 2012. According to state law created as a result of the Senser case, drivers must stop and investigate as soon as possible after hitting any object with their vehicle.

The family also disputes the conclusion that DeMeules was in the middle of the road, asserting that the location of the damage to Maki’s truck and additional statements made by first responders contradicts that conclusion. Without expanding on his reasoning, Edblad stated he did not believe that Maki violated that statute. Additionally, Edblad did not indicate if the KMSP story had any bearing on the county attorney’s office now pressing charges. If convicted of these charges, Maki faces a maximum sentence of three years in jail.

the side of the street that will be deemed no parking and the homeowner has no problem with the new parking restrictions. CITY FINANCIAL UPDATES HEARD DURING SPECIAL MEETING Before the regular meeting, the council did hold a special meeting to get updates on the city’s long-range financial plans, including getting a revised preliminary levy and ice rink costs. According to Director of Finance Caroline Moe, staff has been able to decrease the preliminary levy to a 3.2 percent increase, down from the original 3.5 percent. This is the number the city will present to citizens in attendance at the joint Truth in

Taxation meeting on Thursday, Dec. 1, at the CIHS Performing Arts Center. Moe also presented yet another cost increase to the outdoor ice rinks the council approved in July. According to Moe, the cost to build the warming house has doubled from the originally projected cost. Additionally, a second set of boards needs to be purchased new rather than used because it would be nearly impossible to find used boards that would perfectly fit. Moe said in order to cover these and any possible future additional expenses to the project, she is advising the council to approve using excess money from the 2016 street project, which came in significantly under budget. The council approved the recommendation.

member Paul Bergley disclosed that the planning commission, with the exception of one member, discussed the zoning ordinance outside of a scheduled meeting. Wimmer noted the discussion was a violation of open meeting laws, and those who participated would have to be reprimanded. METRO CREATIVE GRAPHICS

DISCUSSION REGARDING ZONING ORDINANCE Not allowing funeral homes would mean that Strike Funeral Home, which lies within the district and has been operating within the city for 51 years, is now nonconforming. It also means that Strike Funeral Home can continue to do business as is for as long as it remains in business, but it could never expand in its current location within the city. Council and planning commission members Paul Bergley and Steve Lundeen argued the case for funeral homes to be included within the district as well as allowing variances for certain businesses that have been in the community a long time and give Isanti a “small-town” feel. Mayor George Wimmer and Council Member Ross Lorinser argued that allowing variances and exceptions for businesses

like Strike Funeral Home opens up the door to every other nonconforming property in town to request a variance, and that would destroy everything the city has been trying to do to attract businesses in order to lower taxes for the residents of the city. STRIKE ALREADY NONCONFORMING Wimmer pointed out that Strike Funeral Home is already nonconforming due to being 17 parking spaces short of what is needed for a business of its size, and the fact that its stormwater pond lies on a residential lot. “If you were to do any kind of expansion to the business, you have to bring it up to the 17 parking spaces already needed for parking spaces and whatever additional parking spaces would be needed due to the expansion,” Wimmer said. Bergley and Lundeen both stated their difficulty telling a business it could not change something simply because it was nonconforming. Bergley pointed out that Community Development Director Roxanne Achman talked about businesses requesting variances. “They could request a variance,” Wimmer said, “but we have never given a variance because you have to have very specific reasons to give a vari-

ance.” One solution discussed was building a parking lot on one of the adjacent lots. “You can’t just put up a parking lot,” Wimmer said. “That’s not going to generate anything.” He felt that with the lot as small as it is, any new business would not be able to build enough parking space for its own use, as well as additional parking for Strike Funeral Home use.

VIOLATION DISCLOSED In the course of discussion it was disclosed that all planning commission members except Jim Kennedy stayed after adjournment of a recent meeting talking about the issue. “I hope not,” Wimmer said, “because if you guys talked as a planning commission, that is a violation of the open meeting law. Now we have to reprimand you guys for that. It’s illegal.” Wimmer said he would be following up on the violation of the open meeting law. The city council approved the resolution establishing the types of businesses allowed along the Highway 65 corridor with funeral homes not a permitted use.

Cambridge signs sister city proclamation with Croatian town This article appeared in a newsletter for the Croatian company Cortec/EcoCortec with photos from the Cambridge delegation’s visit. The last few days were more than exciting for our Cortec/ EcoCortec team. We have welcomed a delegation from the city of Cambridge, Minn., and had the honor of being their hosts and showing them a part of beautiful Croatia. The delegation from Cambridge included Joseph Morin from the city council; Lynda Woulfe, city administrator; Stan Gustafson, economic development director; and Tim Bliss, production manager at Cortec Advanced Films of Cambridge. They visited Croatia for the signing of a sister city agreement between the city of Beli Manastir, located in the region of Baranja, and the city of Cambridge, Minn. The sistership of the two cities was initiated by our president/ CEO of Cortec Corporation, Boris Miksic, as a result of longterm successful businesses of both Cortec’s manufacturing facilities, Ecocortec in Beli Manastir, and Cortec Advanced Films in Cambridge. After flying to the Croatian capital of Zagreb, Cambridge’s delegation traveled to Beli Ma-

nastir the next morning. They attended the formal part of the ceremony that was organized as part of a “Day of Beli Manastir� celebration. EcoCortec’s General Manager Dijana Zrinski greeted the guests and invited them to an Exhibition of Ethnology Center of Baranja’s Heritage. This truly exceptional exhibition was designed through four themes in order to highlight richness of traditional culture of Baranja, demonstrating its lifestyle, before and now. The team also visited a Hungarian commu-

nity in Baranja (Baranja is the Croatian region bordering Hungary). They were given a very warm welcome by city representatives of the Hungarian town of Mohac and enjoyed a delicious Hungarian “paprikaĹĄâ€? and popular Croatian sweet specialties known as â€œĹĄtrudle.â€? Our friends from Cambridge, along with Cortec’s team, attended a formal meeting in City Hall with Mayor of Beli Manastir, Ivan Dobos. After a formal welcome and greetings followed by short speeches,

presents were exchanged between the city government of Beli Manastir and Cambridge. Both delegations gave interviews to various networks as this event generated large media interest. After that, everybody attended a festive event organized as part of “Day of Beli Manastir.� During this event a formal signing ceremony of Proclamation of Sistership between the two cities was conducted. Speeches were given by Joseph Morin from Cambridge City Council and Mayor of Beli Manastir. Our guests were greeted also by other participants of local government and had the opportunity to see some beautiful artistic performances. In the afternoon everybody walked to the main square to see a performance of “Legend of St. Martin.� At the end of the day our team along with representatives of city and local government enjoyed Baranja’s cuisine at Hotel Patria. Next day, after a tour of the EcoCortec plant, Mayor Dobos gave a tour of this amazing region which could not be fulfilled without tasting Baranja’s famous specialties at one of the most successful family farms in this region. Everyone enjoyed tasting gastro-specialties such

Before heading to Zagreb everyone once again enjoyed a delicious meal as well as wine tasting in Josic Winery, one of Baranja’s favorite gastronomic spots. Our friends from Cambridge spent their last day in the Croatian capital, Zagreb, sightseeing the city center including the famous old upper town marked by little streets that stretch between two hills and the city’s 19th-century architecture that mostly dates from the time of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. After tasting Zagreb specialties in the famous Lagvic restaurant, it was time to say goodbye. The few days spent together were filled with education and fun, and true friendship has been formed. The Croatian team was happy to host such wonderful and warm guests and hope that these days spent in Croatia will stay with them forever. Beli Manastir and Cambridge will have plenty of opportunities to cooperate in the future, and we believe that this trip is just the beginning of wonderful things to come.

BLUEJACKET GYMNASTICS Head coach: Wendy Rooney Assistant coaches: Charlie Wilson, Megan Schultz, Deb Hegquist (part-time volunteer) What was last year’s regular-season record, conference record, and finish in the conference? 8 - 0 duals/conference; M8C Champions Who are the players to watch this year? Our team has a lot of depth and any gymnast can step up and play a huge role in our success. We have a number of girls that have been individual qualifiers for the state meet, including: Hannah Haight (12), Kayla Rakowiecki (12), Madi Douglas (11 - hoping to return to competition mid-season after undergoing off-season surgery), Char Morke (10), MollyAnn Harvey (10). What will be the keys to the team’s success this year? This team works well together and they motivate each other to be their best. As long as they continue with the strong work ethic

we’re used to seeing from this group, we should have a very strong showing this season. What challenges will the team face? Staying healthy is always the number one challenge. What are your goals for the 2016 season? Our goals are to defend our JV M8C Championship and our Section 7AA Championship. We would love to place higher at State than we did last season (5th). Who is the opponent to watch for this year? St. Francis, Anoka and Blaine always have the potential to bring in top-level club gymnasts to add strength to their teams. Big Lake and North Branch should be strong as usual in our conference.

VIKING GIRLS BASKETBALL Head coach: Jerome Huselid Assistant coaches: Alison Trampe, Kendall Norman, Tom Kingsland What was last year’s regular-season record, conference record, and finish in the conference? 14-13 overall record, 6-7 conference record, tied for 5th in the middle of the Mississippi 8 Conference (10 total teams) Who are the players to watch this year? We have a lot of talented, young players with little experience. It will be fun to see many develop and contribute to our team. It will be exciting to see some of the players emerge. What will be the keys to the team’s success this year? We do not have a lot of height this year. Defense and fast-paced basketball need to be our key this year. We must be an aggressive team that plays up-tempo. What challenges will the team face? We will face the loss of some great senior leaders and two big scorers from last year:

Courtney Selbitschka, second all-time scoring leader at North Branch, and Morgen Coleman, who is playing at Hamline. Kalley Hartmann was also a great post player that graduated and is now playing at Wisconsin Stout. We will be a young team, so we will need to learn to deal with adversity and be able to learn quickly as the season progresses. We also need scorers to step up. What are your goals for the 2016 season? Our goal is to have pride in our defense. We want to get out and press, be scrappy, and play an uptempo game. Who is the opponent to watch for this year? Chisago Lakes will be a very good team. Every conference opponent will be tough again this year. There is no easy game in the conference.

Lainie Cox (All-Conference last season), Jana Swanson (AC-honorable mention last season). - Unfortunately, Swanson injured her ACL in the opening game of the year and is out for the season. What will be the keys to the team’s success this year? We will be relatively young at the guard positions, so limiting turnovers will be key. We have also been bit by the injury bug the last few seasons, so staying healthy will be a huge key for us. What challenges will the team face? Depth will be a big challenge for us this season. What are your goals for the 2016 season? Our goals will be to

continue to improve every day and be competitive every game. Who is the opponent to watch for this year? STMA is the favorite in the Mississippi 8, and Anoka is the favorite for Section 7AAAA.

We return a lot of experienced players including Luke Johnson (All-Conference), Henry Abraham (AC), Westen Olson (Honorable Mention AC) Colin Lundeen (HMAC), Levi Wylie, Cody Cottrell, Joah Carlson, Ben Stoffel, Alex Ledahl and Jack Nelson. What will be the keys to the team’s success this year? We would like to play more up-tempo and utilize our depth. Luke Johnson’s size and strength, coupled with good perimeter play led by

Abraham and Olson, are two of our strengths. What challenges will the team face? We play a tough conference and non-conference schedule. There are no games that we can take for granted for an easy win. We have a lot of returners, yet only have three seniors on our roster. What are your goals for the 2016 season? Compete for conference and section titles. Who is the opponent to watch for this year? No clear-cut favorites in conference or section. Blaine, Duluth East, Forest Lake are capable of winning, but we think that with our returning experience that we can challenge. BILL STICKELS III | COUNTY STAR

Head coach: Alex Kuhlman Assistant coaches: Gary Dreissig (Varsity Assistant) Jim VanEerden (JV) and Justin Voss (9th) What was last year’s regular-season record, conference record, and

finish in the conference? 4-23 overall, 0-13 conference and finished last in the conference. Who are the players to watch this year? We lost about 10 of our top 11 players from last season, so with a

new coach and with so many new faces our minutes are really up for grabs. We have some talented young players that are inexperienced, but if they can adjust to the varsity level quickly we should be competitive this season. What will be the keys to the team’s success this year? Our success will depend on how quickly our guys can adjust to the varsity level. With how many minutes per game that we lost from last year’s team, it is going to be vital to our success that we have some players that step up into huge varsity roles this season. What challenges will the team face? The lack of experience will be something that challenges us. Also, with a new head coach and so many new faces, it is important that we gel as a team quickly. What are your goals for the 2016 season? Our goals are to show noticeable and substantial improvement from last year, as well as improve as the season moves along. We are at a point that we are building a program and changing a culture, so our goals aren’t based on wins and losses as much as it is improvement on skills/fundamentals and work ethic. During the off season, our

guys have worked extremely hard, and I hope the results reward them for that work. Who is the opponent to watch for this year? Monticello will be tough coming off their state season last year and they return some high-end talent. Chisago Lakes lost a number of key guys from their state team, but they bring back some experienced talent that should keep them near the top of the conference.

North Branch’s Rinke signs with UM-Duluth SUBMITTED NORTH BRANCH AREA PUBLIC SCHOOLS

On Wednesday, Nov. 23, North Branch Area High School (NBAHS) senior Rhianna Rinke signed a letter of intent to continue her education and athletic career at the University of Minnesota Duluth (UMD). Rinke will compete in cross country and track for the northern Minnesota University, and hopes to major in exercise science and pursue a career as an occupational therapist assistant. While attending North Branch Area Public Schools, Rinke was a five-time state qualifier in cross country. She was named all-state her soph-

omore year, and was named all-conference five times. In track, Rinke participated in the state tournament four times, was all-state in the onemile three times and all-conference four times. Outside of athletics, Rinke participated in National Honor Society, Pit and Symphonic Band, Student Council, Drama Club and Link Crew. She also represented NBAHS as a Powerade Athlete of the Year finalist. “This is amazing, and we are all very proud of Rhianna,” said NBAHS Activities Director Matt Lattimore. “She will be missed here, but will no doubt go on to do great things in athletics and life.”

It was pretty while it lasted

The area’s first significant snowfall on Wednesday, Nov. 23, coupled with the warm November temperatures, made for some picturesque scenes like this one at Paul’s Lake. The beauty didn’t last, however, as late November thunderstorms completely melted all of the snow less than a week later.
