What will it take to reduce accidents?

Our local fire department, ambulance service and law enforcement personnel had the unenviable task of responding to two serious accident within two days last week — one resulting in a critical injury, the other in a fatality.
As if that weren’t enough, we also received news releases this past week detailing two fatal ATV accidents, one involving a rural Olivia man, the other involving a Green Isle man.
The first accident was reported Wednesday morning, Oct. 11, at about 7 a.m., and occurred at Highway 212 and Chandler Avenue.

Money should be used for educating students

To the Editor:
Thank you, Ken Polifka! I think your proposal is a win-win idea.
In the first place, why are we even discussing using $300,000 of school money, money that belongs to GSL students for their education.
Second, what difference does it make what Mr. Polifka does with the land; even privatley owned green space within the city limits should yield some tax revenue. The city would still have a say in its future use by permits, etc. I am sure Mr. Polifka is not going to use it to dump waste or blight.

According to the Minnesota State Patrol, Kraemer was eastbound on Highway 212 in a 1998 Dodge Dakota pickup and was turning left onto Chandler Avenue when his pickup was struck on the passenger side by a westbound 2016 Freightliner semi-tractor trailer driven by Robert Joseph Traynor, 42, of Maiden Rock, Wisconsin.

Olivia man dies in ATV crash

A rural Olivia man died Friday, Oct. 13, in an ATV accident in Renville County, according to the Renville County Sheriff’s Office. The accident was reported at 5:27 p.m., and occurred on Highway 71, about one-half mile north of 840th Avenue.

Couple opens Enchanted Swap and Sell in Glencoe

Enchanted Swap and Sell, owned by Ashley and Matt Dols, and only open on weekends, sells personalized gifts, consignment clothing, wedding decor and — most importantly — hand-crafted items made by local crafters.
The idea to open a little store began to take shape after the couple got married last October.
