Area news digest MONTEVIDfiO-Like football conference rivals, communities along parallel highways 12, 7 and 212 have long vied to have their road designated as this region&apos;s main transportation artery to the Twin Cities. The winner is Highway 212, but it will have to share the crown. "After years of refusing to designate a main route, the Minnesota Department of Transportation's District 8 office is now doing so," district planner Patrick Weidemann said during a meeting on the districts 20-year plan. It's actually designating two routes, Highway 23 and 212 are both proposed for designation as the district's "primary" inter-regional corridors, if eventually approved in St. Paul, the new designation will entitle the two roads to the first cut at district funding for improvement work in the next 20 years. Portions of three other roadways - highways 12, 7 and 19 - will be designated as inter-regional corridors, or one step below the primary ranking provided Highways 23 and 212. The primary designation will enhance efforts to develop Highway 23 as a four-lane route from Willmar to Interstate 94. As a primary route, it will be first in line for the limited amount of funding available for expansion projects in the district, according to Weidemann. MILBANK, SD-Two of the eight young drivers charged with reckless driving after a high-speed chase this fall have pleaded guilty; the remaining six will have a preliminary hearing on Dec. 8. Michael J. Neu, 17, and Chad M. Pollock, 18, both of Milbank, paid $150 fines plus $29.50 costs and turned over their driver's licenses to the clerk of courts for*BO days. They will also have to pay a shai'e of the restitution for a car that was damaged in the incident. Following a girls' basketball game in Milbank Sept. 29th between Milbank and Hamlin, students from the two schools traded insults. When Hamlin fans left town, they were followed by eight carloads of Milbank young people, traveling at high speed. One of the cars from Hamlin County went off the road and sustained some damage. No one was injured in the incident. The eight drivers of the vehicles from Milbank were charged with reckless driving. DAWSON-City workers in Dawson were busy Nov. 19th passing out notices and calling the school and hospital concerning the water contamination that was found in the city's water supply. The Minnesota Department of Health was in Dawson Thursday, Nov. 19 to work with the city of Dawson concerning the analysis indicating a bacteriological contamination. People who us.e the city water were urged to boil the water vigorously for five minutes before using for drinking or cooking. Vince Adelman of the city crew said that they would be adding chlorine to the water and then the city would have to decide based on further information if they will continue to add chlorine. The city does fluoridate the water, but has not been required to chlorinate. The city does random testing twice per month of the water. One suspect sample is what caused the city to contact the department.
