The frigid temperatures kept students indoors for the day at both the community’s public and parochial schools.The following day, the mercury soared to 27 degrees above zero, allowing youngsters like Tanner Rosenlund, 16, to shed an outer layer and enjoy a pickup ice hockey game in a T-shirt and blue jeans at the rink in the park on North Greeley Avenue.

All downhill from here

Alicia Hernandez, 17 (left), and Yakelin Calderon, 13, were among the dozens of people enjoying the sledding hills at the city park on North Greeley Avenue Saturday. Temperatures in the mid-20s drew a nice crowd out for an afternoon of fun and frivolity.

Vax or test: GSL will let staff decide

Teachers and staff in Glencoe-Silver Lake School facilities can opt to be vaccinated against COVID-19 and its variants or subject themselves to wearing a mask and testing if they wish to keep working on site.
That’s the option staff faces after the school board adopted, by a 4-1 vote, a policy outlining the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (“OSHA’s”) Emergency Temporary Standard (ETS) on COVID-19 vaccination and testing mandate for employers with 100-plus employees at its meeting Monday night, Jan. 10.

Growing up in Litchfield, Jenn Scharpe spent plenty of time with friends at Gert & Erma’s in Glencoe. It was the kind of place a high schooler felt comfortable.
Today, as the new owner of Rhema Coffee Shop, the successor to the popular downtown coffee shop, Scharpe wants people to feel the same way she did as a teenager not so long ago. Scharpe purchased Gert & Erma’s and opened the new coffee shop in the same comfortable space on North Hennepin Avenue.
