“Is he the best golfer in the world, Grandpa?” “He’s the god of golf.” The story begins in April when my son-in-law Ron Kalvoda mentioned during our morning jog that the PGA Championship was scheduled to be played at Hazeltine National in Chaska, Minn., Aug. 13-16.
Tracy Peterson has joined the Center-Stanton School District staff as full-time school guidance counselor. Previously the district shared a counselor with Washburn and Wilton. The school board approved the move to full time this past winter.
Let’s see. What did I do on my summer vacation? Played video games, went shopping, caught some sun, and, oh yeah, toured Europe. When 12 Center-Stanton girls returned to school this fall, they certainly didn’t have to think too hard to compose that pleonastic essay in English class.
When that first bell of the new school term rings next week, a new face will be in the halls of Center-Stanton High School greeting the students as they walk through the front door.
The Center City Council discussed vacant building plans brought forward by property owners at its monthly meeting Aug. 3. At last month’s meeting, the council had given individual property owners Lee Benjamin, Myron Brown and Carla Anderson 30 days to come forward with plans for structures that the city inspector had deemed out of compliance with the International Building Code. The city uses this as a guide for inspection of buildings.
When it comes to showing they care, the people of Center do so in many ways, so many times. They do it because they know the difference support can make in the many causes that come abruptly into people’s lives.
