In July a public hearing was held as an opportunity for citizens of Ortonville to give input and comment on the Plan. "It's a far reaching and comprehen- sive document. The city is 'on .track' with some of the items addressed, such as the industrial park, working on assisted living, the city hall project, and working with the main street busi- ness corridor. It's a matter of pulling them together, and including the work plans into the budget process early on," said Mayor Dinnel. Council member Mike Dorry said, "Volunteers put a lot of time into this. It's an exciting project with long term implications. ; The people involved deserve recognition." The Council hopes the various boards, offices and committees will use the recommendations during the .next budgeting process as a guide. Mayor Dinnell said, "We need to look at the short term and decide what's workable." media can respectfully interact to cre- ate a global culture. As a video artist, Media Mike writes, shoots, produces and directs videos with heart and soul. As a video teacher, he instructs people of all ages in how to make videos. This will be Media Mike's second residency in the area. In the summer of 2000, the 3rd Big Stone Arts Intergenerational Project included video making along with a number of other arts workshops. His residencies involve intimate and intelligent deci- sion making, teamwork, inquiry, writ- ing, speaking and all the arts from dance and drama to painting and poet- ry. Mike teaches the technical knowl- edge base needed for production, along with the vocabulary of moving image creation in a hands-on process working in front of or behind the cam- era. -, This program is made possible with funding support from the Southwest Minnesota Foundation and other support by Bonanza Education Center and it's member schools of Big Stone City, Ortonville, Clinton- Graceville-Beardsley, Chokio- Alberta, and Browns Valley. People can view work of Media Mike and that of some of his workshop partici- pants on Channel 10 throughout this week.
