Election Results 2014


Maple Lake city offices saw a steady stream of voters in to and out of the polls Tuesday morning, casting their ballots for governor, legislators, city councilors, local school board members, county sheriff and other public offices. Volunteer Election Judges Vicky Gries, Marge Peterson, Bonnie Elfmann, and Jenny Polsfuss all helped voters with things like registration, providing ballots, and explaining how to mark a ballot. Election Judge Sue Boros helped oversee the ballot counter and handed out “I Voted” stickers.

   In local races, Lynn Kissock ran unopposed and will once again take office in January as Maple Lake’s mayor, along with Deb  Geyen, re-elected, and Todd Jude elected to City Council.

Standing corn row program helps reduce winter road closures, saves state money

 

Strategically placed rows of corn and a lot of teamwork are helping keep more rural roads open in central and southwestern Minnesota this winter by reducing the amount of snow blowing onto roads that are prone to drifting shut, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.
The standing corn rows are part of a MnDOT program started about 15 years ago that pays farmers to leave corn stalks up in the winter. The corn rows break the wind’s force, causing the snow to collect around the corn rows instead of drifting onto the roads. The rows improve driver visibility, road surface conditions and lower costs of road maintenance.

The problem is that too many of the ordinances aren’t uniformly enforced because they are often implemented by a specific department.
