Happy Thanksgiving & shout-outs to local athletes

Tuesday, November 26, 2019

Dear Neighbor,

Here are a few shout-outs to area athletes and a brief Thanksgiving message this holiday week.

Fall sports are winding down and I want to commend area athletes for their efforts this season, including congratulations to:

  • The Paynesville Bulldogs football team for winning its section championship and advancing to the state Class AA semifinals. Nice job, young men!
  • ROCORI Spartans senior Olivia Motter for recently winning the Class A state diving title – putting the finishing touches on a perfect season where she finished first in every meet. What an impressive accomplishment!
  • The ROCORI Spartans football team for advancing to the state Class AAAA championship game 4 p.m. Friday at U.S. Bank Stadium. The Spartans play the SMB Wolfpack (St. Paul Academy, Minnehaha Academy, Blake co-op). Good luck, ROCORI!

As for Thanksgiving, this week is a wonderful time to pause and give thanks for the blessings we all enjoy. Sometimes the hectic day-to-day pace we live distracts us from the fact that, despite the personal challenges we all face, we are truly blessed in the lives we live. This Thanksgiving holiday is a great time to join with friends and family to count those many blessings and give thanks to our Lord, from which all good things come.

Look for more official legislative news next time. For now, please have a wonderful Thanksgiving, please be safe out on the roads and, of course, let’s go, Spartans!
