CLHS to perform Little Mermaid this year
The Chisago Lakes High School musical is “Little Mermaid” and it opens next week.  Some cast members took a few scenes out to elementary schools for the younger students to enjoy and maybe pique their interest in attending the full-blown production at the Performing Arts Center at the high school.  Mermaids played by Ashlyn Woeltge, Serenity Schaefer, Michaela Stimson, Darcie Snider, Sophia Charles, and Lydia Trandahl were happy to pose for a photo at Lakeside School.  More photos page 10.

Voters turnout in record numbers
If the voters in Chisago County had decided the office-holders for the whole state in this week’s general election-- Amy Klobuchar would not be going back to Washington D.C., Doug Wardlow would be stepping into the Attorney General’s office, Jeff Johnson would be our next Governor... it’s clear the electorate here was pretty much backing the opposite of what the majority in the state supported.

What a turnout - so glad it's over with, Veterans Day deserves our thanks
I hope you had a chance to get out and vote on Tuesday.  “You can’t complain if you didn’t vote” is such an overused cliche, but the meaning isn’t.  It is us who decide who runs our country, our county, our city, our township, and our school board.  Hopefully the new crop or the newly elected individuals can find a way to work together with the other side instead of this sickening infighting we have seen over the last year or two.

Q&A with Shafer Council candidate Nick Brehm
1. What’s one thing you notice around your town that local government can/should be doing something about to improve quality of life? 
One thing that local government should be doing for our community Is: encouraging participation in community issues Wheather it be through broadening our governments presence on social media, news flyers, websites etc. I feel that for so long people have felt shut out and not listened to at both the County level but also the City level. I also feel that this conversation should be a two-way street. Transparency is key in such a small and closely knit community as ours. Every citizen, as a tax payer, has a right to know what is going on in their communities. At the same time they need to be encouraged to involve themselves in the communities well-being at political, social and economical levels. So if there is one thing that I could stress more, it is that we encourage residents to come forward, and open a line of communication to work through the issues together to better our neighborhoods.

Applesauce for apple flavor
Oh, oh! It’s still apple season. If I remember correctly, when I did apple columns a few weeks ago I didn’t include recipes using applesauce. I did make applesauce but not the amount I usually make. I only went to an apple orchard once to buy a few of my favorites just for eating. I had bought some really red skinned apples at the grocery store. Not Red Delicious but I think it was Cortland; a softer red skinned apple that would make a good applesauce. This may sound putzy but I peeled them and put the red peelings in a saucepan, added water just to cover and simmered them for about 10 minutes and the water was pink in color. I strained it, saving the liquid. While cooking the apples, I used the pink water for some of the water added to the cooking apples. Results? A light pink color in this batch of chunky applesauce.

Lindstrom Council to undertake stormwater study around Lions Park, committee to look into columbarium
The residential area all around Lions Park in Lindstrom frequently experiences drainage problems, with streets almost impassable and yards under deep water at times. The council last week gave the city engineer the go-ahead to assess the stormwater and utility systems in that area and report back.
