I School (Continued from page 1) The Kindergarten program had always been half days for many years, then last year the board had decided to try fill days on alternating days. "Kids at this age don't have the attention span for a full day of school yet," stated Beth Tinldenberg, whose daughter was in the alternating day Kindergarten last year. "They tend to get tired halfway through the day, and the schedule was difficult for children that age to understand." Tinklenberg also stated that there are few full day Kindergarten programs in the state, and with the half day program the children will develop a good routine for their remaining years in school. Additional salaries will need to be paid to support staff, who will be used for the nursing duties. Last year, the Kindergarten teacher was also the school nurse. She will be doing only nursing consulting this year while she is teaching. The Board felt the continuity of a full day was better than that of a half day for a child, stated Superintendent Jeff Taylor, and although the children are always the furst priority, there will also be cost savings to the district by going to full alternating days. He stated that the district saved about $17,000 on transportation with the alternating full day program last year. Following much discussion, the board decided to go with this compromised program for one year. "This will help us determine our course of action in coming years, and we plan to survey parents after this year to determine which schedule worked best," stated Elementary Principal Joel Stattelrnan. Stattelman also'stated that this seemed like a way to take into account the parents' decision as well as allowing the board more time to gather data on the matter. Council (C.cminued from page 1) stated Councilman George Elliot. Elwood Throndrud, concerned citizen, stated that he was in opposition to vacating the land since it belongs to the entire city and not a select few. 'The city needs this land as much as it does the golf course land and the city parks," he said. Judy Drewicke, member of the Ortonville Marina Corporation, said, "It would be foolish to go through all this and lose this property. We want new people and new money in the community, and I say let's just do it." Following the discussion, NORTHEAST ORTHOPAEDIC CENTER Serving N.E.

WE NOW ACCEPT MEDICARE ASSIGNMENT (s0s) 2.zs30 or 1-800-658-4763 Mallard Pointe Business Park Watertown, SD Councilmen George Elliot and Ortonville Mayor Dave Ellingson voted for the vacation, while Council Members Butch Mittelstaedt, Bill Hynnek, Mary Gustafson and Dan Oakes cast dissenting votes, and Councilman Mel Rinke chose to abstain. When contacted later about the Marina Corporation's plans now that they will not be receiving the additional land, LaValle Berkner, one of the members of the corporation stated that everything should still be going ahead as planned. "The corporation will be demolishing the south building at the site in the next couple weeks, and we will have gas, concessions and rentals by next spring," he said. "What people didn't realize in this situation is that we would be paying an additional $1,000 per year to the city in taxes on top of the $4,000 we'll already be paying for the rest of the land if we would have gotten this additional property," Berkner said. In other business, the council accepted a quote for an additional $18,310 to Bergerson Caswell Inc. of Maple Plain for unexpected increases in the costs to cap wells in the two buildings at the Ortonville Marina site. In a letter from Bergerson Caswell, Tim Berquam, project manager stated that sealing procedures had changed from their criginal plan, and now include removal of unknown liner casings. Including the cost of the project to date, the well capping will possibly reach a total cost of $25,880. Also, $3,000 which had been set aside for the air show held during Ortonville's Cornfest celebration August 14-16 was instead deferred to the improvement project at Horseshoe Park, located along the dike road between Ortonville and Big Stone City, SD. Ellingson stated that the air show would not be happening this year due to scheduling conflicts, so the council had made the decision to instead use the funds to help improve the park. 128 register for flag drawing A total of 128 persons registered for the Flag drawing at the Republican booth during the 1998 Big Stone County Fair in Clinton last weekend.
