New county administrator selected 5-0

The County Board last week unanimously offered the job of County Administrator to Chase Burnham; one of about 40 applicants and six finalists who went through interviews earlier this month.  The choice of Burnham was no surprise.  He’s been deputy administrator and stepped in as interim administrator when Bruce Messelt left late last summer,  and has served as clerk of the board in the eight years he has been with Chisago County.

Turek leads Vikings to upset of state-ranked Gentry Academy

North Branch 6, Gentry Academy 3
If there was ever any doubt how much senior goalie Jake Turek means to the unranked Viking boys’ hockey team, last Thursday’s 6-3 win at home against the seventh-ranked Gentry Academy Stars erased  those doubts.  The Stars averaged over a shot per minute in the game, outshooting the Vikings 52-32.  But Turek allowed just three goals on those 52 shots while his teammates made the most of their opportunities, enabling the Vikings to come away with a win against one of the top teams in the state.
