Budgets, levies ﬁnalized this month BY KIRSTEN FAURIE EDITOR@MORAMINN.COM
Local governments are making final 2017 budget decisions and setting tax levies that will determine (in part) what citizens are to pay in property taxes. Upcoming Truth-In-Taxation meetings will allow for citizens to provide local leaders input on their levies and how they propose to spend tax dollars. These governments set preliminary/proposed tax levies earlier this fall, now each government unit must approve their final levy before Dec. 31. The final levy can be less than the proposed levy, but not more. Statewide, cities have averaged a proposed 6.2 percent levy increase; counties 4.2 percent; townships 2 percent; schools 2.8 percent.
1 dead in head on collision STAFF REPORT NEWS@MORAMINN.COM
One man is dead and another seriously injured following a head on collision on Highway 23 near Brook Park at approximately 5 p.m. Monday, Nov. 21. According to the incident report by the Minnesota State Patrol, Dermont Wester, 20, of Cohasset was driving a Saturn SL2 west on Highway 23 when he drove into oncoming traffic. The Saturn collided head on with a Buick Park Avenue driven by John Moller, 60, of Milaca. Moller was pronounced dead at the scene. Wester was airlifted to North Memorial Hospital in Robbinsdale with serious injuries. Alcohol is not suspected as a factor in the accident.
ACCIDENTS SURGE DURING WINTER STORMS While the roads were clear when this fatal accident occurred, the first snow storms of the year heralded in a slew of traffic accidents. During the first snow storm of the year (Nov. 17 and 18) the Minnesota State Patrol reported 76 crashes and 235 vehicle spin outs/vehicles off the road for the northeast region. The Minnesota Department of Transportation encourages drivers to plan ahead and check road conditions before they travel. “Our snowplow operators are out there cleaning off the roads and trying to make it a safe holiday for everyone,” said Commissioner Charlie Zelle. MnDOT urges drivers to use the 511 traveler information system website and phone app to plan their travel. The system provides road and winter driving conditions for the en-
tire state and links to National Weather Service information. The system is available at www.511mn.org or by dialing 511. Motorists can also download the free 511 app on their smartphones and other mobile devices. For safe winter driving, MnDOT asks motorists to take responsibility to: • Avoid distractions; stay off cell phones and mobile devices. • Don’t crowd the plow. Stay back at least five car lengths, and preferably 10, from the snow plow. • Obey the law by turning on headlights and wearing seat belts. • Turn off cruise control. Make sure vehicles are in good operating condition for winter driving. Allow extra travel time and always be prepared when traveling during winter weather.

White, ﬂuffy, beautiful, deadly Snow plows were busy the morning of Wednesday, Nov. 23, clearing snow that had accumulated on the roads overnight. Now long since melted, the season’s ﬁrst snows usually bring with them a ﬂurry of car accidents or cars sliding into the ditch as drivers re-learn how to drive during winter.
Telander to open new bar, restaurant BY SCOTT MCKINNEY NEWS@MORAMINN.COM
Over a year after the closing of a downtown Mora mainstay, a lifelong resident is using his bar and restaurant management experience to launch a dining establishment there. Kevin Telander is readying Kev’s Depot, a new restaurant and bar. Kev’s Depot will open in mid-December in the former Bowe’s Restaurant and NEWS 320-679-2661 firstname.lastname@example.org

Bowe’s closed its doors in late October 2015. “It was time to take a little bit of a risk,” said Kevin. “I’ve been in the business for 15 years: first at Spring Brook Golf Course and later at the Crystal Bar and Grill. That worked out well for our family, as I was able to be home with our children in the daytime. Now with them off to school, we can shift a little bit to me

Stop for pedestrians in crosswalks Winter is soon upon us, the days are getting shorter and often darker and evening falls earlier. Sometimes drivers fail to remove snow from their windshields or allow them to fog up, driving with less vision than perhaps in summer. Under all of these circumstances drivers still need to be aware of pedestrians and follow the law regarding yielding to them. It seems in our state there is far less compliance by vehicle drivers with laws intended to protect pedestrians than in other states. past It’s In Your From experience, I Court conclude that in California Judge and New York, Stephen Halsey among others, either enforcement is stricter than in Minnesota, or drivers simply have more courtesy and respect for pedestrians than in our state. I am going to provide a brief refresher on pedestrian laws: Where traffic control signals are not in place or in operation, a driver must stop for a pedestrian crossing within a marked crosswalk or at an intersection with no marked crosswalk. A vehicle that is stopped at a crosswalk can proceed once the pedestrian has completely crossed the lane in front of the stopped vehicle. When a vehicle is stopped at an intersection to allow pedestrians to cross the roadway, drivers of other vehicles approaching from the rear must not pass the other vehicle. It is unlawful for the driver of a motor vehicle to proceed through a group of school chil-

Some of you may have stood at the curb in a marked crosswalk and received the universal sign of derision (middle finger) or honking and shouts of profanity from a driver. It is unfortunate that many drivers seem to think that their mission to get to their destination is so much more important than any mere pedestrian.

ed crosswalk in downtown Buffalo and watched as three cars in a row zoomed by me at about 40 mph and failed to stop. Likewise, jaywalkers and bikers who ignore traffic laws put themselves at risk and incur the consternation of drivers. For all of us who share the roads and sidewalks, we should consider and take to heart the messages that MnDOT and others have been broadcasting which discourage aggressive driving, as well as texting while driving. In doing so, we can all contribute to safer highways and byways, thereby lessening the frequency of tragedy on Minnesota streets and roads.

What is the law regarding snowy or frosted car windows? Question: I noticed a car, the other day with the windows so frosted up that the driver had to roll down a window to check for cars coming from the side. What is the law on frosted windows and snow on a vehicle when it is being driven? Answer: There is a law in Minnesota that says no person shall drive any motor vehicle Ask a with the windshield or front side windows covTrooper ered with steam or frost to such an extent as to Sgt. Neil prevent proper vision. Dickenson While the statute does not mention the rear windows, I highly recommend that all windows be cleared. Many people remove the snow from the windows but leave it piled high on the engine hood. If all the snow is not removed, when a
vehicle reaches highway speeds some snow can be blown from the vehicle and sucked into the fresh air intake area of your car. (Normally located near the bottom of the front windshield) This can result in an instant moisture fog up on the inside of your windows and windshield. Try to make sure you get all the snow/ice removed from your vehicle. This will increase your visibility and it could help you avoid a crash. Defrost, scrape and clear all the windows on your vehicle prior to driving, so you can see from all angles. Remember to slow down when the road conditions become poor as your stopping distance can be greatly increased. For questions concerning traffic related laws or issues in Minnesota, send questions to Sgt. Neil Dickenson – Minnesota State Patrol at 1131 Mesaba Ave, Duluth, MN 55811.

Shopping small comes with added value One of my favorite things to do this time of year is to get people gifts. I love shopping for others as long as I can find them something unique that they didn’t have on their Christmas lists or perhaps something that they would want but would never buy for themselves. Every year I go to the Holly Fair and stock up on items I know will be great gifts: Mittens made from old sweaters, handmade scarves, dishtowels embroidered with a Dala horse, Editor jewelry, soaps, etc. Don’t tell anyone, but I once Kirsten Faurie gave one of my in-laws a gift I purchased at the Holly Fair and she thought I had made it myself. I didn’t correct her. The best way to find these special, unique gifts is to shop small. On Small Business Saturday Nov. 26, I had the pleasure of wandering into several stores I had never been in before and finding unique treasures. I understand that sometimes shopping at small local businesses can feel like you are paying more. But remember, you are getting more, too. Money that is spent locally, stays local. It supports creating jobs in our community. Plus, small businesses reinvest in our community — if you ever attend a benefit or see photos of donations being made in the paper, you will notice it is the local businesses that so strongly support local causes. Many of us may struggle to make all of our purchases small and local, but just because you can’t make every purchase at a small and/or local business doesn’t mean it isn’t worth it to at least make some of your purchases locally. This year I challenge our community to look to their downtown shops to buy at least one gift that will be given this season. Kirsten Faurie is the editor of the Kanabec County Times.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Thanks friendly Mora To the Editor: I pass through Mora regularly during the autumn as I travel from St. Cloud to N.E. Pine County. I sometimes stop for fuel, beverages, food and the like. Everyone is always friendly and helpful. This past Saturday further proved the friendliness and helpfulness of your community. As I passed through my trailer had two flat tires. I pulled into a station off TH23 to examine the damaged tires. As I wondered about my predicament, a sheriff’s deputy with “City of Mora” on the squad car pulled up alongside me. He greeted me while I asked, “did someone call in and say there was some idiot driving down the highway with two flat tires?” He replied, “Something like that” with a smile. The friendly deputy contacted his dispatch center who then contacted A-1 Towing. The nice gentleman and his young son from A-1 Towing were there to pick-up my trailer in a few minutes. For a fair
cost, the trailer was taken up the road to Glen’s Tire that was closing in ½ hour. I suggested that I could leave my trailer so the tires could be replaced. The reply to me was, “no, we’re about to close but we’ll get you on the road in a few minutes. About 15 minutes later, for a fair cost, I was on the road with two new tires. Thank you to all involved (including the people that called 911) that saved my weekend trip from disaster. I was only delayed an hour for what elsewhere might have been overnight or longer. I’ll be stopping in Mora more in the future. Michael Williams St. Cloud
Flood relief appreciated To the Editor: To the Kanabec County Flood Relief Benefit Community: Thank you to all that were involved in making this happen. I would like to give my deepest heartfelt gratitude for the gift of money. I couldn’t believe the mail I received
from you. I was so shocked. I fell to the ground crying. Words cannot express how much I appreciate what everyone involved has done in making this happen for me and my family to get our home back together. I couldn’t have done it without your help. I can’t wait to start rebuilding. Thank you all from the bottom of my soul for making this happen. I feel so proud to live in a community like ours that bands together to support one another. Bless you all.

and Ogilvie district students. Behind it all was the quiet work of the Kanabec County service unit of The Salvation Army, whose entire purpose is to identify needs throughout the year and meet them, from emergency response (floods, fires) to helping during shortterm mini-crises with vouchers for gasoline or groceries. We touch a lot of lives because we have funds raised through our Red Kettle campaign. As Christmas approaches, shopping locally and giving locally go hand in hand. This month, bells and kettles will be out around Kanabec County at key locations. When you hear a bell ringing, remind yourself that the change in your pocket adds up big and it always stays within the county collected. So when you see a red kettle out in front of Coborn’s Superstore or Shopko Hometown in Mora, you can be sure that all cash or checks dropped in helps us reach our $7,500 local goal for 2016. If you’d rather swipe a card this season, then make a purchase at the Crystal Bar & Grill or The Fish House Coffee Shop in Mora.

TERRY JOHNSON, MD GUEST COLUMNIST
A flyer that recently appeared in the Kanabec County Times was advertising for a screening program that started with: “We can help you” and then in larger letters: “Stay Stroke Free.” I know this statement is going to appear after this event takes place, but I’m hopeful people will read it and remember for next time. The organization behind this is offering four different ultrasound screenings and an EKG test to screen for atrial fibrillation. I am recommending that people not do these tests for several reasons. Let’s start with the fine print of their notice. They say that they do not participate in Medicare or other insurance programs which means you pay cash for the whole thing. The reason insurance companies do not pay for them is that they know these tests are not indicated in most circumstances. In addition, they have a disclaimer there that says they can’t prevent all strokes. Also, they refer people to their providers with the test results. I’m going to quote the United States Preventive Services
Task Force (USPSTF) a lot in the next few paragraphs so I should tell you who they are. They are a group of mostly physicians who have expertise in analyzing research to help practicing physicians decide how to screen for disease. Let’s start with carotid artery screening. The USPSTF says: “The USPSTF recommends against screening for asymptomatic carotid artery stenosis in the general adult population. There is moderate or high certainty that the service has no net benefit or that the harms outweigh the benefits.” Enough said. Another screening test they offer is for abdominal aortic aneurysm. The USPSTF recommends that screening be done based on age, gender and history of smoking. They do recommend screening certain populations, but in these people, the screening should be covered by insurance. The company offering these screenings doesn’t want you to know this because they want everyone to be screened by them to make more profit. A third test they offer is for peripheral vascular disease (PVD). The USPSTF says there is insufficient evidence to
‘The biggest reason I do not recommend any of these screening tests is that they prey on seniors by making them afraid with their ads.’ recommend screening or not screening for PVD. Another test they offer is for osteoporosis using an ultrasound screening of the heel. First off, it’s pretty rare that people break their heel. Secondly the USPSTF recommends screening based on risk and this needs to be figured out by a doctor, physician’s assistant or nurse practitioner. The USPSTF also says that standards for treating and following osteoporosis are based on DEXA testing and there is no way to compare the ultrasound of the heel with the DEXA. It’s like apples and oranges. The other test they screen for with this group is for atrial fibrillation. It turns out the USPSTF is currently looking at that very topic and guide-
lines will be released soon. For now there are no recommendations to do this screening. In addition to the above, most of the companies that offer these community screenings are for-profit companies. The machines are often owned by the doctors reading the tests and therefore profit by having more of them done. The biggest reason I do not recommend any of these screening tests is that they prey on seniors by making them afraid with their ads. If you have already done this screening and your tests were OK, you are out some money for no reason. If you have had the screening and you have abnormalities, they will tell you to see your provider to discuss them and then you will end up getting the appropriate tests. If you haven’t done these screenings yet, why not save the money and go to your provider right off the bat. Your doctor, nurse practitioner or physician’s assistant knows you best and will help you figure out what screening tests are appropriate for you. By the way, I work in emergency medicine, so I don’t have a stake in this. I’m just trying to save some good people some money.
Dining out doesn’t have to be unhealthy BY AMANDA NASS NEWS@MORAMINN.COM
According to USA Today, restaurant sales in November and December have been on the rise since 2010. With an increase in eating out, usually comes an increase in eating too many calories. So, what do we do to counter act this issue? 1. Check for how food is prepared. The menu will often tell you how the food was prepared or you can always ask the waiter/waitress. You want to look for foods that have been grilled, baked, boiled, roasted or steamed instead of fried, crispy, creamy or sautéed. 2. Try to choose lean meat options. The lean meats to order include, chicken, turkey and seafood. You can also trim the visible fat off, especially if you do order the red meat to make it a little healthier.
3. Take some food home. Most restaurants serve large portions and instead of cleaning your plate, you can always take some home as another meal. 4. Choose items marked “healthy.” Many restaurants have items visually marked as “healthy” because it has become increasingly trendy to eat healthier now. These items can be very tasty, while also being healthier options for you. 5. Avoid ordering the “extras.” Ordering extras, such as sugary beverages, desserts or appetizers will also increase the number of calories consumed, so be aware. If you do order extras, just be selective in what you choose, try to keep a good balance with your meal and share with others. 6. Ask for dressings on the side. Some meals come with sauces
such as gravies and salad dressings, which can add to our calorie amount without you even realizing it. By asking for them on the side gives you the power to control the amount you use. 7. Ask for smaller portion or share. Some restaurants have half orders available or you can even order off the kids’ menu and these portions can usually leave you feeling satisfied instead of uncomfortably full. With these tips, you can still enjoy going out to eat, but you can also feel better about the food you are ordering and eating. Next time you find yourself reading a menu, remember these seven tips and consider them while choosing what to eat. For more information on this topic, you can visit the American Heart Association website under dining out or Choose MyPlate.gov.

rearrange a few things. And the banquet area is just as the previous owners left it.” While Kevin plans to host special events in the banquet area, he has set his priorities on the main dining area. “We’ll concentrate on opening the bar and restaurant first, and then ease into hosting banquets and events,” he said. “We know it’s important to do things really well, to set ourselves apart with good service and good food. We’ll focus on a smaller menu, concentrating on preparing 30 to 40 items really well. We’ll serve a couple of different sandwiches that people won’t be able to get anywhere else. We’re installing a bigger tap system, so that we can offer twenty different draft beers.” Kevin and his wife Kati met while they worked together at the Crystal.
Kati Telander She intends to help out at Kev’s Depot. “I think people are looking for a different option,” she said, “people my age, and my parents’ age. It’ll be a place to host events. And we welcome our local veterans to come in.” Kevin is optimistic about his new venture. “I was born here, and lived here all my life,” he said. “Most people know my last name, and everyone knows this place. We’ve planned Kev’s Depot to be family-friendly; we want the place to be appealing to all and offer as much entertainment as we can.” Scott McKinney is a contributing writer for the Kanabec County Times.

attachments from unknown email senders. Stolen records and dumpster diving: Financial statements, medical information or checks sent by mail contain sensitive information that identity thieves misuse. Card skimming: Some of the largest cases of ID theft in the United States occurred through card skimming, in which thieves electronically capture and store the details stored in a card’s magnetic strip. HOW TO PROTECT YOURSELF AGAINST ID THEFT You can take several steps to protect yourself from ID theft, some of which include the following: Monitor your credit report: You can obtain a free copy of your credit report from the credit bureaus once every year online at www. annualcreditreport.com, by calling 1-877-322-8228 or by writing to: Annual Credit Report Request Service, P.O. Box 105281, Atlanta GA 30348-5281. Monitor your financial statements: Carefully review your credit card and bank account statements each month for unauthorized charges or fraudulent use. Protect your information: Store documents that contain sensitive information in a secure location.
You may ask each credit bureau to place a “fraud alert” in your file to require creditors to contact you before a new account is opened in your name. You may contact the credit bureaus to place a fraud alert in your file as follows: Equifax: 1-800-525-6285 -TransUnion: 1-800-680-7289 -- Experian: 1-888-397-3742 Shred and delete sensitive documents: Before you dispose of documents that contain sensitive information (credit card or bank statements, etc.), shred them. You can opt out of prescreened credit card offers online at www. optoutprescreen.com or by calling 1-888-567-8688. When disposing of electronic devices, make sure they are wiped clean of any personal information that may be stored on them. Secure electronic devices and online accounts: Hackers try to get at people’s information by accessing it directly from their devices or from websites. Make sure your devices have security software, such as a firewall and anti-virus protection that is up-to-date. Create strong, unique passwords for your devices and online accounts and log off when you are done. Encrypt and password protect your home Wi-Fi, and avoid using public Wi-Fi to access accounts or make online purchases.
Utilities campaign to protect consumers from scams Gas and electric utility companies across the United States and Canada, as well as the Better Business Bureau of Minnesota (BBB), are joining forces to protect customers from long-running scams targeting customers of utility service providers. Reports of phone, email billing and door-to-door scams are back again and represent thousands of dollars lost by customer victims. “These schemes often ramp up with the change in seasons,” said Dana Badgerow, president and CEO of the BBB of Minnesota and North Dakota. “Like most scams, it plays on peoples’ fears and has proven to be quite effective, unfortunately.” During the phone scam, a customer receives a phone call from an individual who falsely claims to be a utility representative. The scammer warns that the utility will disconnect the customer’s electric or natural gas service if the customer fails to make a payment, usually within a short timeframe. Scammers have even duplicated utilities’ telephone messages and automated response systems so when customers call phone numbers provided by the scammer it sounds legitimate. Some of these scammers also use caller ID spoofing to replicate utilities’ customer service numbers. The campaign encourages the public to share these messages to help guard against scam activity. Some Minnesota utilities experience an increase of more than 30 percent in customer scam attempts when colder temperatures set in. RED FLAGS FOR SCAM ACTIVITY The scammer tells the customer his or her account is past due and service will be disconnected if a large payment isn’t made, usually within less than an hour. The scammer instructs the customer to purchase a pre-paid debit or credit card, widely available at retail stores,
then instructs the customer to call back to supposedly make a payment to the utility.
HOW TO PROTECT YOURSELF Utilities never ask or require a customer with a past due account to purchase a prepaid debit card to avoid disconnection. Customers with past due accounts receive an advance disconnection notification by mail, not a single notification one hour before disconnection. Know which utility providers serve you. If you suspect someone is trying to scam you, hang up and call your utility at the phone number listed on your bill and report it to the BBB. Never dial the phone number the scammers provide. Customers who suspect or experience fraud or feel threatened during contact with one of these scams, should contact local authorities. The utility companies of Minnesota and the BBB continue to enhance efforts to educate the public. For the first time, in 2014, Minnesota utilities joined forces with the BBB to launch “Slam the Scam,” a coalition and awareness campaign aimed at warning customers and preventing scams. The coalition is encouraging customers who think they are being targeted by a scammer to simply end the conversation and “slam” down the phone. The Better Business Bureau of Minnesota is closely tracking these types of scams. UUAS is a collaborative effort among the electric, gas, and water utility industries to help prevent utility service fraud through education, awareness, and customer advocacy initiatives. A primary goal of this collective effort is to help customers learn how to identify and avoid utility-related scams. Learn more about the UUAS effort at www.eei.org including further tips and resources to help spot and avoid utility scams.

A ﬁre on May 7, 2014, burned the entire building.

City of Ogilvie foots the bill for yet another cleanup after a 2014 downtown ﬁre
While downtown Ogilvie is less another eyesore, the city is also less about $34,000 for the cleanup. Not long after the city of Ogilvie paid to have the site of the former school demolished, Ogilvie again paid to have the site of 209 N. Hill Avenue torn down and ﬁlled in. The building there was purchased by Tim Davis, Central Property Services LLC in January 2014 and he was in the process of renovating it when it burned to the ground on May 7, 2014. The ﬁre left a pit of rubble. Davis transferred the property via quitclaim deed to Jeffry Frovarp in Dec. 2014. Since then, the city of Ogilvie had been pressuring Frovarp to clean up the property by any means necessary. With little progress made, the city of Ogilvie hired Superior Excavating to clear the site, plus attorney fees cost the city approximately $40,000. This cost will be assessed to the property and may be paid back to the city over time via property taxes. The cleanup was completed near the end of October.
Holetz family recognized for work in campground industry
Smithsonian exhibit visits Sandstone
The Minnesota Resort & Campground Association Minnesota Hospitality Hall of Fame award recognizes individuals who have made significant contributions to the development of Minnesota’s resort and campground industry and are deemed “legends” by their peers. The award honors lifetime achievement and exemplary leadership in the industry. This year, two couples were recognized for their contributions to Minnesota’s campground industry including Richard and Ruthann Holetz of Mora. CAMPERVILLE Richard and Ruthann Holetz have owned Camperville Campground just north of Mora for 37 years. Richard had a successful career as an insurance agent while Ruthann became a realtor. They made a home for themselves in Edina and raised four children. In 1979, on their way home from touring vacation condos in the Brainerd area, they took a detour that would shape their lives. Richard had heard of a campground for sale and persuaded Ruthann that they should check it out. Over the next few months, they visited Camperville regularly, envisioning the potential of this campground that had been carved out of the woods 16 years prior. They purchased Camperville in December of 1979. Although the grounds were open all week, most of the revenue in the early years was derived from weekend rentals. Fridays through Sundays was “all hands on deck” for the entire family. Marketing efforts in those days consisted of delivering brochures to every gas station, convenience store and business related to camping within a two-hour drive of Camperville. Richard was also a fixture at the Minneapolis/St. Paul RV, Vacation and Camping Show in Minneapolis with his orange awning display and flashing lights. Over the years, significant improvements were made to the property: building a house, paving the driveway, replacing buildings, erecting a machine
The Minnesota Humanities Center announced the new Smithsonian Institution traveling exhibition, “Water/Ways” opened in Pine County at the Audubon Center of the North Woods in Sandstone on Saturday, Nov. 19. The “Water/Ways” Sandstone Opening Ceremony was held from 3 - 5 p.m. on Nov. 19 at the Audubon Center. “Water/Ways” is a traveling exhibit that focuses on the relationships between people and water, how water connects story, history, faith, ethics, the arts and science, all through the community. Minnesota is one of only five states chosen to launch this exhibit.

Ruthann and Richard Holetz were recognized with the 2016 Minnesota Hospitality Hall of Fame award for their work at Camperville.
shed to store maintenance equipment and planting many, many trees. All of this was accomplished while maintaining their respective careers in financial services and real estate. Richard resigned from his “day job” in 2006; Ruthann continues to help families buy and sell homes in the Twin Cities with Edina Realty, where she has worked for 46 years. Richard served on the board for the Minnesota Association of Campground Operators and was instrumental in bringing about a merger with the Minnesota Resort Association in 1996. In 2002, he was the first Minnesota Resort & Campground Association president who came specifically from the campground side. Today, Camperville is a seasonal-only campground. Daughters Kris and Cathy and their families work in the store and organize activities. Sons Rich and Michael help out occasionally, as do Richard and Ruthann’s nine grandchildren. The family is also grateful to have reliable work campers who help maintain the grounds and keep the operation going.
Due to the holidays, deadlines are as follows: For the Kanabec County Times and the Pine City Pioneer Dec. 29 issue will be Dec. 23 at noon & the Jan. 5 issue will be Dec. 30 at noon.

to the facility over the upcoming years. Adam Schrank joined the Imperial Plastics team as plant manager in July 2016. According to Adam, the best thing about the Mora plant is the surrounding community and working with team members who are passionate about working
together and being successful. Les Haggard has worked at the plant for 23 years. His favorite thing about working at the Imperial Plastics plant in Mora is the friendly work environment, the customers the plant supports and the proximity to his home.
Local author featured at Braham Event Center Marilyn McGriff, a local writer of several historical books about the Isanti County area has a new book coming out. This one is a fiction book with actual localities mentioned. The title of the book is “Caught in the Lye” as in lye for processing lutefisk at the Day Fish Factory. According to the story there is a murder at the fish factory that has to be solved. Marilyn will be at the library room of the Braham Event Center
on Thursday, Dec. 1 from 3 - 5 p.m. to read from the book and discuss it as well as sign books for anyone purchasing it. This is a enticing comment by Marilyn about the book, “Caught in the Lye” summary: To investigate an apparent homicide at the local lutefisk processing plant, Nick Nordin, a rookie sheriff’s deputy, is assigned to the case. Nordin knows nothing about lutefisk or his new environment. In the course of his
investigation, he learns about both, thanks in part to a local historian who regales him with tales of the area. He also strikes up a relationship with the young woman undertaker who dealt with the murder victim’s body. But lutefisk remains the main character of the story, and it doesn’t come out smelling so good.” Come and be entertained and pick up a book for someone’s Christmas present.

Ogilvie students learn about disabilities Ogilvie second grade students participated in disability day on Nov. 9. The day began when Mrs. Enyart came in to speak with the students about what it is like to have a disability. She gave examples of various disabilities people might live with. She told them how important it is to empathize with those who struggle with having a disability. Then each student drew a speciﬁc disability from a hat. Some of those disabilities included the loss of an arm, eye, hand or leg. Students were ﬁtted with eye patches, arm slings, crutches or wheel chairs. They were asked to wear the disability for an entire day regardless of how difficult it might be. The students were relieved to be able to remove their disability at the end of the day and expressed how much they learned from the experience. A follow up journal response to the experience was written by each student.
Students thank veterans through essays Ogilvie students competed in an essay contest prior to Veterans Day. These are the winners: ESSAY 1 Veterans are important because they are the reason America is the wonderful country it is. They bravely fought for our country knowing they were risking life and limb. But they fought anyway because they care about our country and about us. We wouldn’t be here without them. So thank you veterans for all you’ve done; we are very grateful. We will never forget the great sacrifices you’ve made. Thank you. by: Alivia Sanborn, grade 8
ESSAY 2 Veteran’s Day is a day to recognize the brave and the strong that fought for our country. It’s a real honor to know each and every one of you. I would like to say thank you to all of you for your service. It means a lot and we as a country appreciate it. Even the ones that have passed, they didn’t die in vain they died fighting for what they love. Even though they’re not with us today, they will always be in our hearts and watching over us. It’s a day to remember the ones who were gone for so long and gave up being with their loved ones. They left them behind and fought for our country. They go and fight so we can sleep

We as a nation remember Veteran’s Day for all of the strong soldiers that went and fought for our country. They made that decision to go and fight for our country they made the hardest decision of their lives. When they made that decision they wanted to do it and knowing that, chances they might not be coming back home. Veteran’s Day is a very special day and we should all feel honored

and thankful to these strong and brave soldiers. When they are gone we miss them and know there’s a small chance that they might not be coming back. That is a scary thought to have. Some members of my family were in the military for many years. They all came back home. Some of the stories they have told me I could never imagine in my wildest dreams. I’m so thankful for what they have done for our country and I’m so proud to call them my family. A huge special thank you to all of you for fighting and going through everything you have went through. You men and women as a military should be very proud of yourselves for what you have accomplished and how far you have come. For the bravery you guys have shown us and for how hard you have worked. You all were gone for so many months and years from your loved ones. It’s all worth it in the end, when you come home to your family knowing that you saved your country. To see your babies and wife and family welcome you home at the airport. We should thank them for their service, for as long as they were in the Army or other branches of the military. I want to extend a huge thank you to all of you brave and strong men and women for fighting for our country. Thank you. by: Taylor Dobbins, 12th grade

ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20 Aries, peace of mind may come your way after you square away all of your ﬁnances and begin developing a budget for the year to come. Enlist some professional help if necessary. TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21 Introspection leads you on a quest to ﬁnd a creative outlet, Taurus. Play to your strengths and ideas will surface, or check in with friends for inspiration.
LIBRA - Sept 23/Oct 23 Libra, if you take a roundabout route, you will still end up at the ﬁnish line. And the new perspective this route provides may beneﬁt you in the long run. SCORPIO - Oct 24/Nov 22 Scorpio, you may have to work a little harder to get what you want, but the results can’t be denied. Focus your attention on making a name for yourself in your career.
GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21 Gemini, stick with a course of action even if you have hit a rocky road. Your efforts thus far have been extensive, and you will soon see a light at the end of the tunnel.
SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21 There is no stopping you when you have a goal in mind, Sagittarius. Call it stubbornness or just dedication, but your ambition may open doors that remain closed to others.
CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22 Cancer, if family is not around, surround yourself with friends. This support system will prove invaluable. Express your gratitude to friends for their unwavering support.
CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan 20 Capricorn, someone close to you is interested in learning more about what makes you tick. New friendships may develop this week, so approach situations with an open mind.
LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23 Leo, a different way of thinking may be just the thing you need to solve a problem that’s been more puzzling than you expected. Ask others for their point of view.
AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18 Aquarius, resist the temptation to bite off more than you can chew. While you might want to prove your ability to multitask, don’t do so at a detriment to your health.
VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22 Virgo, before you can be honest with others, you have to be honest with yourself. Take a look at things you might want to change and then forge ahead in that direction.
PISCES - Feb 19/Mar 20 Pisces, even if you have rest and relaxation on the brain, celestial forces are pushing you in a different direction.

Participants gather at Eastwood Life Enrichment Center for ‘Name that Tune’ Approximately 30 people attended the Eastwood Life Enrichment Center’s “Name that Tune” activity. With Rosalie Ludwig on the piano and Eastwood activities coordinator Sue Grenier on the cymbals, participants were asked to guess which song was being played. Once the tune was identiﬁed, sheets of lyrics were handed out for everyone to sing along. Some of the classic songs included “Sentimental Journey” and “Your Cheatin’ Heart.”

NEWS FROM YESTERYEAR
125 YEARS AGO (1891) The wreck of a freight train between Mora and Hinckley suspended traffic a few hours Monday. Since the close of lake navigation there have been as many freight trains this way as usual. W. D. Burhite, the wide-awake sewing machine and organ agent of Hinckley, was in Mora this week.

The Arthur Power and Light Company has offered its facilities for sale to the village: however, since it is offered for sale, it is expected that should Mora voters turn down the opportunity to purchase the facilities, the Mora Municipal plant would no longer serve this load. “Saturday is Santa Claus Day:” Saturday will be a funfilled, exciting day for youngsters -- Santa has started for Mora and says he’ll be here Saturday morning for sure. Old Santa says that he has a huge pack full of candy and nuts for the kiddies. To help make it a really big day, members of the Mora Commercial Club not only arranged for Santa’s visit but they have a scheduled a free movie to be shown at 10:30 a.m. and again at 3:30 p.m. Santa will be at the side entrance of the theatre to distribute his goodies. Santa Claus will be busy during his visit to Mora --he’ll not only be at the Paradise Theatre to distribute his goodies, he plans to visit the hospital and the nursing home. Boy’s and girls who want to whisper a big wish in old Santa’s ear can probably spot him along the street somewhere as he makes his rounds. 25 YEARS AGO (1991) “Bones mystify investigators:” An anonymous call led Kanabec Sheriff’s deputies to a mysterious scene involving human bones, artifacts and a revolver last week. “We got a call from the state Archaeological Society office in Duluth about human bones being removed from the ground,” said Kanabec County Chief Deputy Marv Myhre. According to Myhre, a tipster had phoned the society office to report witnessing the desecration of what at first appeared to be an Indian burial mound near Fish Lake south of Mora. “Governor Carlson visits Kanabec County Farm:” Governor Arne H. Carlson and Minnesota Agriculture Commissioner Elton Redalen toured the Tom and Deanna Felger farm in rural Kanabec County last Wednesday as part of a day-long farm-hopping schedule that began in Worthington and ended near Wilmar. Carlson and Redalen made the tour in observance of Farm-City Week to focus on the important link between Minnesota farms and Minnesota cities. Shortly after arrival at the farm, Carlson strolled the aisles of the Felger’s
barn with Tom and Deanna, asking questions, inspecting the animals and equipment, and gaining insight on what makes a dairy operation tick.
10 YEARS AGO (2006) “Lourey ready for new duties; Senator-elect will hit the ground running with committee assignments to health care, agriculture and veterans affairs:” Senator-elect Tony Lourey has been asked to serve on a total of four state senate committees as part of a democratically-driven shake up of senatorial assignments. Lourey’s highest-profile assignment will be serving as vice chair of the State and Local Government and Oversight Committee. Along with governmental policy, this committee includes oversight of Minnesota election law and gaming across the state. “The jurisdiction of this committee is incredible,” Lourey said. “There’s just a ton of important things that come to it for both primary and secondary looks.” Lourey said he had lunch last week with Secretary of State Mark Ritchie to discuss in detail the responsibilities and functions of the committee, saying he came away anxious to get to work. “County comes up short for road projects:” Local road projects involving county roads No. 20, 24 and 2, slated for 2007, will require funds in excess of what’s available in the county’s State Aid Regular Construction Account, Greg Nikodym, the county’s engineer, said last week. The county account balance, as of Feb. 1, 2006, he said, is $1.2 million. The total estimated cost of the three projects is $2,084,400. Nikodym recommended that the county ask for an advance from the state in order to do the projects in a timely manner, in accordance with the county road plan. He told commissioners that the remaining $884,400 in funds would be deducted from future Regular Construction Accounts over a three-year period. “This way,” he said, “we can let out bids early and do the projects as scheduled.” Matt Anderson is a contributing columnist for the Kanabec County Times.

Mora boys basketball begins with core of returning starters BY SCOTT MCKINNEY NEWS@MORAMINN.COM
The Mora Mustangs boys basketball team comes back from a 2015-16 season where they improved upon the season before. With a strong core of returning starters and two players poised to set career milestones, the team is poised for a strong start in 2016-17. Head coach Curt Grachek believes that the team is prepared for the new season. “I expect we’ll start the season with a firm grasp of individual and team roles,” he said. “Each player has a very good idea of what to expect from his teammates.” The Mustangs finished last season with a 10-18 record, fourth place in Section 6 AA East and seventh in the Granite Ridge Conference (GRC). This was an improvement from their 2014-15 record of 5-22. In February they beat Pine City in the first round of Section playoffs, but were eliminated by St. Cloud Cathedral. “Braham, the Class AA State champion, came from our section,” Grachek said. “And the GRC is very tough; our
conference record last season was 2-12. St. Cloud Cathedral, Becker and Zimmerman are conference rivals. If we meet up with Esko at their Holiday Tournament in late December, they’ll be a big challenge too.” “We’ll return our top seven players from last year. And we expect that two Mustang team captains will surpass 1,000 career points this season, junior Cal Wright and senior Brandon Mann. Wright is likely to reach that milestone in January, and Mann in February.” The Mustangs coaching staff includes varsity assistant Jamie Wright, junior varsity coach Pete Balmer and ninthgrade coach John Hageman. “Though the GRC will be tough again this year, I believe we’ll improve on our conference record. I also believe we’ll be very competitive in non-conference games. We should have a strong start to our season and we intend to get stronger.” The Mustangs open the season on Tuesday, Dec. 6, at home against Pierz. Scott McKinney is a contributing writer for the Kanabec County Times.

Mora girls basketball will work at improving every game BY SCOTT MCKINNEY NEWS@MORAMINN.COM

The Mora Mustangs girls basketball team begins the 2016-17 season with a core of motivated players and a goal to contend in a very competitive conference. “We’re approaching the new season with a fresh, enthusiastic outlook,” said head coach Brandon Ostien. “The girls work hard every day, pushing each other to be the best they can be.” Mora finished last season with an 1116 record, fourth place in Section 6 AA East and eighth in the Granite Ridge Conference (GRC). They were eliminated by Braham in the first round of section play. Ostien said the GRC’s teams have been a challenge for the Mustangs. “In the past two seasons, we’ve won only two conference games,” he said. “This year our goal is to be competitive in the conference and come out with more wins.” “Each year’s team brings new players who help us succeed. They may be on the varsity team or on the junior var-

sity or ninth-grade teams challenging the varsity to get better. We’re returning one starter from last year, senior Anna Mork. Accompanying her to start the season are seniors Emily Hackler, Mariko Ruettimann and Rachel Vreeland, juniors Lindsay Boge, Faith Nielsen and Hailey Thielen and a core of younger girls who will round out the varsity team.” Ostien, varsity assistant coach Dale Strelow, junior varsity coach Lynn Headington and new ninth-grade coach Lindsey Peterson have clear goals for the new season. “We want to finish with a .500 record or better in the GRC and advance to round two or further in the section playoffs,” said Ostien. “We expect to grow continuously throughout the season and reach our full potential by the playoffs. To do that, we intend to get better each day.” The Mustangs opened the season on Tuesday, Nov. 29, at Rush City. Their home opener is Friday, Dec. 2, when they host Moose Lake-Willow River.

Mora wrestling looks to reclaim section title BY SCOTT MCKINNEY NEWS@MORAMINN.COM
Last year the Mora Mustangs wrestling team won the Section 7 AA team championship with a 12-0 section record and advanced to the state tournament. Despite a first-round loss to eventual AA champion Kasson-Mantorville the team plans to rely on talent, perseverance and teamwork to reclaim the section. “Our overall record last season was 24-6,” said head coach Tom Youngblom. “We had a great group of seniors who led us. We learned that each person on the team matters and every point counts. So we had to learn teamwork and perseverance.” For the 2016-17 season, Youngblom said Mora’s competition will be as strong as ever. “It’ll be the same cast of characters for us. Foley is the team to beat in the Granite Ridge Conference and the state tournament. In Section 7 AA Grand Rapids, Hibbing, and longtime rival Milaca-Faith Christian are the teams to beat.” “We’re not quite good enough to say those are the only teams who will be tough. This year’s schedule is the toughest it’s ever been and all the other schools look to be competitive this year. We’ll be in for a long year if we don’t get better each week.” The Mustangs are a young team this season, said Youngblom. He anticipates strong seasons from senior Ethan Prachar; juniors Konrad Blood, Hunter Fredrickson, Andrew Klentop, Jordan Lindquist and Mason Sanborn; sophomores Ryan Nosbush, Jacob Nowling, Dan Schroeder and Jon Smith and eighth graders Cody Haggberg, Dylan Nelson and Tommy Nosbush. “We’ll be tested each week,” Youngblom said. “That said, we intend to be competitive and win the section. We’ve had 16 winning seasons and we don’t expect that to change.” The Mustangs open the new season at home on Thursday, Dec. 1, against third-ranked Pierz.

Mora boys hockey looking to repeat last year’s success BY SCOTT MCKINNEY NEWS@MORAMINN.COM
This winter the Mora Mustangs boys hockey team returns from a season where they were co-champions in the Two Rivers Conference and intend to repeat their success through the strong efforts of talented seniors. “We had a successful season last year,” said head coach Kevin Nolt. “We had some great seniors who did wonderful things for our program over the last three years. We lost four of our six top scorers, so players need to step up and replace that scoring.” The Mustangs finished with a 15-11 overall record, clinching a first-place conference tie with Pine City-Rush City and sixth place in Section 5 A. They lost to Monticello-Annandale-Maple Lake in the first round of section playoffs. Though a co-op team between Mora, Milaca and Hinckley-Finlayson schools, Nolt said this year’s Mustangs team is made up entirely of Mora players. “Senior Luke Anderson will continue making strides towards becoming a ‘go-to’ player for us, as will sophomore Gavin Orr, adding scoring punch to our lineup,” he said. “Senior goalie Jake Libra will be a staple for us in the net and will be surrounded by a solid group of defensemen.” Nolt and assistant coach Brett Bald-

It’s our job as coaches to get the most out of those skills, combining with the players around them to make the team more successful.” “We’re a small squad compared to the last few years and so far this has been a plus. The players have been pushing each other during practice, and going hard in the weight room. Hockey is a sport that thrives on team chemistry; the quicker we develop this, the better our season will go.” Nolt said the Two Rivers Conference provides traditional rivalries for the Mustangs. “Pine City-Rush City and Legacy Christian Academy will be our biggest challenges this season. Ever since I started coaching in Mora, these games always seem to be intense and close.” “This will be a fun year for our hockey program. Our expectation is to get better each game.

Mora girls hockey starting with young group BY SCOTT MCKINNEY NEWS@MORAMINN.COM
The Cambridge-Isanti/Mora/Pine City Bluejackets girls hockey team return from a season where they set their best record in eight years. They plan to maintain their successful approach, staying competitive to be well-positioned for the postseason. “We graduated a lot of seniors last season, so we have a young group this year,” said second-year head coach Corey Bustrom. “Our primary challenge will be to get everyone acclimated to our team culture and to work within our systems and expectations.” The Bluejackets finished last season with an 11-12-2 record, a team best dating back to 2008. They finished fifth in the Mississippi 8 Conference and seventh in Section 7 AA. The team was eliminated by Forest Lake in the first round of section playoffs. Bustrom said the Bluejackets won’t make major changes from last season’s approach. “Ultimately, the girls want to make a run for the state tournament,” he said. “This starts by winning games against section teams during the regular season, so to improve our seeding when the playoffs start. We’re also working to win the Mississippi 8; Rogers and Princeton will be the big ones to watch in our conference.” Bustrom is assisted by the Bluejackets’ coaching staff: Brian Guimont, Bailey Hastings, Jared Knutson, Clint Parnell, and Shannon Skelton. “The players to watch this year are seniors Claire Belkholm and Addie Smreker, juniors Alyson Niebur and Megan Smith, sophomores Sydney Nuebel and Ashley Schintz, and ninth graders Chloe Nelson and Madelyn Skelton,” said Bustrom.

Ogilvie wrestlers ready for break out season BY SCOTT MCKINNEY NEWS@MORAMINN.COM
The Ogilvie Lions wrestling team returns from a 2015-16 season that saw them advance to the second round of Section 7 A playoffs. With the return of last year’s experienced wrestlers and coaching staff, the team is primed to continue these achievements. “We had a young group of wrestlers who showed great improvement as the season progressed,” said head coach Adam Halvorson. “And we didn’t lose anyone to graduation last season. Many of our wrestlers are ready for breakout seasons. I’m excited to see them perform this season, as they’re a year older and a year more experienced.” Last season the Lions achieved a 5-7 record in dual meets. They defeated Nashwauk-Keewautin-Greenway in the first round of the section tournament, but were later defeated by eventual section champion Pierz. “Pierz is our toughest competition in the section, and Aitkin and Cloquet are toughest in the Great River Conference,” Halvorson said. “We had a hard-working group last year, with solid leadership from our upperclassmen. But we didn’t have depth. We need to succeed individually and come together as a team to be as competitive as possible at dual meets.” Senior Cole Felde and juniors Braden Ryan and Matthew Warren are the Lions’ captains this season. Dan Belsheim, Matt Houtsma, Ben Burk, Bill Pike and Derek Carlson again make up Ogilvie’s coaching staff. “These guys have a great deal of experience as wrestlers and coaches and they’ll work to build on our wrestlers’ strengths and improve their weaknesses,” said Halvorson. “Each brings his own approach to the wrestling room and that will help all of our wrestlers meet their goals.” Halvorson has prepared the Lions to continue last season’s successes. “We’ll have many individuals seeking to be champions at individual tournaments and we’ll be competitive in dual meets. I expect to have a hard-working group of wrestlers who will be fun to be around.” The Lions begin the new season on Saturday morning, Dec. 3. The varsity team competes in a tournament at Rush City, while the junior varsity and junior high teams travel to Aitkin. Scott McKinney is a contributing writer for the Kanabec County Times.

Ogilvie boys basketball starts year with new coach, philosophy BY SCOTT MCKINNEY NEWS@MORAMINN.COM
The Ogilvie Lions boys basketball team enter the 2016-17 season with a new coach and a new philosophy: winning by working hard, mastering the fundamentals and enjoying the game. “Our expectations this season are for the team to play basketball the way it’s supposed to be played. And have some fun. That’s basically why we play,” said Gerald DeBoer, firstyear head coach of the Lions. “We’ll put the best team on the court that we can and we’ll find a way to make it work.” DeBoer was the Lions’ assistant coach last season, and stepped into the position when last year’s coach Jonathan Nelson took over Ogilvie’s girls basketball program. The Lions ended last season with a 1-22 record, defeating Onamia 73-57 on Senior Night, Feb. 18. They finished ninth place in both Section 5 A South and the Great River Conference (GRC) and were eliminated from section play with a loss to Onamia. “We didn’t get a lot of victories last year,” DeBoer said, “but we did develop a lot of good work habits. The players worked hard and challenged themselves. This year I’m stressing that the players learn the basics and have a good time. That’s really what it’s all about.” DeBoer and assistant coach Matt Gunderson work together to emphasize basketball fundamentals. “We’re introducing a new offense and working on increasing our defensive speed. It’s a team sport and we work together,” DeBoer said. “Every team we face presents a challenge. We respect them all, but we have to play them one at a time.” “The best thing we can do is help players become good individuals as they go on in life. Sometimes sports help with that. If we work hard and we still don’t win, that’s the way it goes. But you’re never a loser if you’re giving your best.” The Lions open the season at home on Friday, Dec. 2, when they host East Central.

Ogilvie girls basketball look to pressure top teams BY SCOTT MCKINNEY NEWS@MORAMINN.COM
The Ogilvie Lions girls basketball team begins the season with a new coach, a home-court advantage throughout their schedule and a strong core of experienced, talented players. Jonathan Nelson, who coached the Lions boys basketball team last season, takes over coaching the girls team with the departure of longtime coach Mike Norton. “Coach Norton set the ground work for our success this season, along with junior high coaches Dawn Hass and Linda Spears,” said Nelson. “Assistant coach Pam Nickels and I hope to take the program to the next level.” The Lions ended last season with a 5-21 record, eighth place in the Great River Conference (GRC) and 10th place in Section 5 A South. They were eliminated from section playoffs with a loss to Swanville. Nelson started his coaching career in 2001 at Ogilvie and begins his 17th season, his first one coaching a girls team. “This has been one of the hardest-working teams I’ve had, since my state tournament team back in Iowa,” he said. “The girls are young but they have experience and they’ll surprise people with their competitive nature.” “Braham will be tough again, but we hope to figure into the conversation by the end of the season. We have a favorable schedule with 13 home games, so we need to take advantage of that and make our court a tough place for opponents to win.” This year, Nelson said, the Lions benefit from a strong core of talent. “Senior Shania Nahring is one of the best players in Class A and the GRC and will carry the load till the younger girls get their confidence rolling. Junior Bonnie Carlson will run the point guard and lead our offense. Sophomore guards are Maizy Burk, who may be our most athletic player and Lilly Lee, the hardest-working and most determined player on our team.” “Our posts consist of seniors Bre Carlson and Hannah Hufstedler and sophomore Emma Vogel. Bre is

versatile and will also play a guard position. Emma is quickly learning the offense and how the system works. Hannah is coming along nicely and catching up after her role in the school play.” The team’s goals are ambitious, said Nelson. “We want to win 15 games this regular season and take first in Section 5 A. Finishing in the top half of the GRC is another goal; we hope to put pressure on the top teams.” “As far as predictions go, I like to play the underdog card and leave people not knowing what to expect from
us. The girls will fight hard and outwork every team we play. I firmly believe that hard work bears good fruits. I’m very fortunate to be in this position and am looking forward to a great season.” The Lions open the season with a road game at East Central on Thursday, Dec. 1, followed by an afternoon game at Isle on Tuesday, Dec. 6. The home opener is on Thursday, Dec. 8, against Hinckley- Finlayson. Scott McKinney is a contributing writer for the Kanabec County Times.

Mora skiers looking for team, personal goals this year BY SCOTT MCKINNEY NEWS@MORAMINN.COM
The Mora Mustangs Nordic ski team wrapped up the 2015-16 season with both individual and team successes. With a new season upon them, the skiers intend to work hard and build upon their accomplishments. Last year’s boys team won the Section 5 Championship, and advanced to the state tournament for the first time in 18 years. The girls team advanced two individual skiers to state: 2016 graduate Sadie Peterson and this year’s senior Mikaela O’Bert. “The boys won every meet but one during the regular season last year,” said head coach Peter Larsen. “They were section champions and took seventh place in the state tournament. The girls had a successful regular season and ended up in fourth place in the section.” Larsen said the Mustangs boys team is currently ranked eighth in the state. “There’s a large group of seniors on the team who will lead the boys to a great season. Seniors John and Michael Schwinghamer will most likely be our top two returners. Senior Caleb Weinand, juniors James Woolhouse and Jordan Woods, sophomore Nathan Williams and ninth grader Cooper Lennox will round out the top seven with a few other skiers working their way up the roster.” “For the girls, Mikaela O’Bert is now a senior and the top returning skier. She and senior Shae Singleton will lead a young group that includes sophomores Ella Bohnen, Addi Hawkins and Cailyn Smith and ninth graders Lily Peterson, Johanna Schwinghamer, Tate Singleton and Abby Szoka.” Larsen is mindful of the competition for both the boys and girls teams. “Champlin Park will be a formidable opponent for the boys in Section 5,” he said. “Little Falls, St. Cloud Cathedral and Brainerd will all be tough in Granite Ridge Conference meets. Maple Grove and Andover will challenge the girls in the section and Little Falls in the conference.”

“Mike Brown and Chip Gerdin return as assistant coaches and this year Wade Weber will help out as well. We’ll continue to build on and improve on what we’ve done in the past.” Larsen believes the skiers have high expectations for the season. “As usual, they plan to work hard and improve. We expect to achieve many personal goals this season. For final results, the boys would like to finish higher than they did at the state tournament. And after finishing fourth in the section, the girls

would like to be in the top two and advance to state,” he said. “I predict we’ll have a lot of fun and work hard to be better skiers. At the end of the season our hard work will pay off. We’ll have many personal best finishes and hopefully a trip to state.” The Mustangs first meet is scheduled for Thursday, Dec. 8. Scott McKinney is a contributing writer for the Kanabec County Times.
