Coach Weiss really has the team playing well this year. The Wildcats will be hosting St. Francis this Friday and they would like to see you. It would be great if we could pack the stadium and cheer the team on to victory. Why don't you bring the family out early, the Gridiron Club will be serving food and refreshments prior to the game. It is a great time to see friends and neighbors and cheer on your Chisago Lakes Wildcats.
The Chisago Lakes Lions Club would like to invite you and your family to their pancake breakfast. The breakfast is held at the High School on Sunday and runs from 8 a.m. until 1 p.m. I would like to point out (because this is the selling point in our family) that there is also french toast served. The cost at the door is $7 for adults and $3.50 for children 12 and under. A neat fact about the pancake breakfast, Thrivent Financial will supplement up to $1000, which goes directly to the local food shelf as does 1/2 profits from the breakfast. The breakfast is tremendous and the cause is even greater.
Last week in our police report we had a story about a tragic stabbing on the golf course Friday night. It seems some young men were attacked for no apparent reason. Absolutely senseless. The young man who was attacked is recovering from multiple stab wounds. If there is one thing that really bothers me, it is when a person inflicts harm on someone they do not know. As a parent, I am sure the parents of the victim are mortified as would I be.
This is a good time to explain how we at the Press get our information and the process we follow as a case unfolds. Every week we go to the Chisago County Courthouse and review the incidents from the prior week. These records are called initial complaint records. That is where you see the bookings every week. If there is an incident that is above normal and is newsworthy, we will interview whichever department was involved ie; Sheriff, Lakes Area etc. With further details in hand, we will write up a summary of what we get from the report and the interview with the department. If the story is important enough to keep following, once the criminal complaint is out, that is where the details of an incident are explained in great detail. From there, if the event continues to the courts, we will follow it until a verdict is reached.
The folks at the Kids Outerwear Fair are still taking donations. If you have gently used children's winter clothes, you are encouraged to donate to the fair. You may drop items off at Trinity Lutheran Church in Lindstrom or call Bonnie at 651-257-5129.
This week is Fire Prevention Week. That means we are supposed to check out batteries in our smoke detectors and talk with our kids about what to do in the event of a fire.
Lindstrom and Center City will be holding open houses this Saturday. Chisago City will be visiting Room For Growing, Primary School and Lakeside Elementary on Friday.
These great men donate their free time to make sure you and I are safe. For that we owe them a world of gratitude. Thank you to all area firemen for all you do.
