Birch Avenue was very patriotic June 28 as Storytime with Marie and Books with Boone joined together to celebrate the Fourth of July. Twenty-two children and 12 adults and Boone met at the McHugh Building for stories, songs and fun with the flag and the July 4th Holiday. Each child made a star-studded visor to wear in the annual parade down Birch Avenue. They sang, waved flags and chanted “U S A” to the parents and business people who were so kind to take time from their work to come out and watch the parade. We want to thank them very much for helping our parade be more fun.

Clarification to school board report required

In response to clarification from Maple Lake Schools Superintendent Mark Redemske, corrections to last week’s report on the June 13 meeting of the Maple Lake School Board are in order.
In discussion of a proposed operating referendum and capital projects levy, the figure of $529.60 per pupil unit – which was the operating levy referendum amount last November – was used as a reference point and rounded to $530 for purposes of simplicity.
It is a number that may change for this year based on a number of variables, and the report should have stated that a key point Redemske made during the meeting was that a $530 increase in the per pupil unit amount does not correlate to a $530 increase in households taxes, and for most people would be significantly less than that.
The report also erroneously stated that a capital project referendum would add $100 to the per-pupil unit amount.
