Thirteen individuals from South Winneshiek High School, competing in 12 different events, made the trip south to Des Moines for the 2015 State Track and Field Meet last Wednesday evening.

For the 13 Warriors competing at the meet, it was time for their hard work and season-long dedication to finally pay off. The goals that have been at the top of each and every one’s lists all year were now within reach.

When the South Winneshiek boys’ golf team departed Calmar Friday morning, May 22, it had only one thing on its mind – winning. The boys knew they would be competing in the toughest District in the state and that it would take their best outing of the season. That is exactly what they delivered.

The Class 2A No. 3-ranked Warriors shot 318 as a team, good enough to make them District champions and advance them to the State competition this weekend in Ames.

Lake Meyer enhancement to begin this week

 

 

Major enhancement to protect and improve Lake Meyer is scheduled to begin the week after Memorial Day. The work includes building a wetland with a grouted rock chute spillway in the headwaters of the lake on the northeastern shore and will involve drawing down the lake’s water level.

  Lake Meyer is a 32-acre lake located in the 160-acre Lake Meyer Park, just off Highway 24 between Calmar and Fort Atkinson. The lake was originally built in 1968 as a 37-acre lake, but sediment from the surrounding watershed over the past 40 years has decreased the lake’s size to 32 acres, and has decreased its volume from 165 acre-feet to 78 acre-feet. Lake Meyer has also been placed on the Iowa Department of Natural Resources’ (DNR) 303(d) Impaired Waters List due to high concentrations of sediment and nutrients, primarily nitrogen and phosphorous.

Public invited to judge student designs

Public invited to judge student designs

 

 

North Fayette Valley’s Introduction to Engineering & Design students will get a taste of real life when they present their projects to the public in a setting much like the popular television show, ‘Shark Tank.’

Four student groups will each give a five-minute presentation detailing the process as to how they designed new tables for a fictional coffee shop. The presentation is Thursday, May 28, from 1-1:45 p.m. and open to the public. 

Maximum material costs were $200 per table, and the table must have a modular design, which interlocks for stability. Anyone participating Thursday, will be invited to ask questions on their decisions and can then vote to choose the best design. The presentations will take place in the Performing Arts Center at the high school in West Union.
