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.)

Adopt-a-Road participants volunteer for Sherburne National Wildlife Refuge (NWR) and work to clean roadsides that border and bisect refuge land. This spring, from April to June, approximately six individuals, three families, and seven groups, such as boy and girl scouts and 4-H groups, volunteered to clean countless miles of roads.
