Interesting start to year

April 4, 2008 - Lee Smith
One of my weekly tasks at the Sentinel is to glean from the newspapers articles that may qualify as stories of the year by the time December rolls around. It requires diligence to make sure I don't forget a week, and thus an important nominee. In any case, the first quarter of 2008 has provided some stories with Top 10 potential. Among them is the proposed $9.7 million school referendum that will go before voters in late May. There also has been quite a lot of hubbub around town regarding the Level 3 sex offender who located here and has now moved several times. He's currently living in a city park. Faribault County approved a $10 million bid for a new jail in January. North Kossuth ratified sharing with Sentral. Michael Burgraff left the Fairmont Opera House. There was a huge local turnout for caucuses this year. Torgerson Properties announced plans to build a Hampton Inn. A Bancroft school site was deemed hazardous to students and staff. We will have to see what the warmer months bring. Usually news heats up with the temperature, or so it seems. We'll see.
