James was wrestling a good match against Justin Hennesey before being pinned in 4:35. Rich Raffety at 145 pounds wrestled his way to a 2-1 record for the week. Raffety had two pins and one heartbreaking loss. Rich looked like he would pick up his third pin of the week in the first period; it looked like he had the fall against Jacob Asfield of Eagle Valley, but the ref did not see it that way and Rich was reversed seconds later and pinned. Stuart Stone at 130 pounds continues to show a great deal of improvement. Stone has been able to fight off his back more and stay in each match longer. In the past week he has wrestled some tough kids and has been able to do a lot of good things. Stuart has reached the point in his career where he can fight with his opponents longer. He is not quite to the point where he can get the win, but he is getting near that level. Like so many on our team he needs to keep working hard in practice and in his matches and stick with it and good things will happen for him. Others that are in the same boat as Stuart are Dan Laskowske, Josh Sykora, Jason Kellen, and Chris Lee. They all have been doing much better in their matches, but have not been able to put together many wins. "As far as the team has gone we have not been able to get any wins," stated Coach Joe Eustice. 'q'he thing that we are more concerned with is staying in the matches longer and learning to get off our backs. When we can do these things we will start to win more individual matches that will turn into team success. In the last few matches all of our kids have been able to fight off their backs with much more consistency. We have also been able to win more individual matches which helps us keep the scores closer. Last year when we went into a match we could expect to win one individual match and hope to pick up maybe another. This year we have been able to win three to four individual matches that shows we are improving in all areas." The next action for the Mat Men will be today, Tuesday Dec. 22 at Granite Falls to take on WME. This will be the team's last match before Christmas. They will take a few days off and be back in action at Montevideo on Jan. 2nd for a JV and varsity tournament. The team would like to thank all of the fans that turned out to see their first home match last Tuesday vs. Wheaton. "It was great to have so many people yelling for us and cheering us on. We would also like to thank the following: HEDGE AND HERBERG, HENRICH & SONS, HERITAGE PRINTING, SONNY'S PRINTING, BIG STONE PHYSICAL THERAPY, OUR PLACE CAFE, AND SYKORA PLUMBING for sponsoring our t- shirts," Eustice said.

"Increasing numbers of grandparents provide long-term care to their grandchildren as a result of divorce, substance abuse, child abuse or neglect, abandonment, teen .pregnancy, death, unemployment, ncarceratlon and mental health issues. While the reasons vary, they all result in a great deal of responsibility and often times added stress for the grandparent." Brintnall-Peterson says much of the research on grandparent caregivers focuses on the difficulties they face. Older grandparents may be facing health problems, Stamina is also a frequent concern. Many grandparents report feeling both emotionally and physically drained. Older grandparents also say they worry about what will happen to their grandchildren if something happens to them.
