THE BIG LAKE TRACK TEAM began working out this week in preparation for the upcoming season. Weather conditions made it impossible to use the track, so they did exercises in the middle school gym. The Hornets take part in a time trial meet 4 p.m. Tuesday and Thursday in the Becker Field House. The first regular meet is March 25 indoors at Monticello High School. They compete outdoors April 1 at Monticello Middle School. (Photo by Ken Francis.)

LIFE IN OLD TIME BIG LAKE was a very different proposition then it is today, middle school students from April Bischoff and Ann Segner’s classes discovered when they had some guest speakers come to class Wednesday. Sharing their history were long-time residents Darlene Lanz and Dee and Norm Leslie. That’s me on the right. (Photo by April Bischoff).

BIG LAKE Finance Director Deb Wegeleben was serving as an interim but was awarded the position permanently because she did the job so well.
