Girls tennis opens up schedule Thursday

The Benson-KMS girls tennis team is set to open up the 2020 season Thursday, Aug. 27 (tomorrow) at Morris Area-WCA.  The Fighting Braves will be playing a condensed schedule this season, due to COVID-19, and the team also has a new head coach as Coleton Anderson has taken over for Jonas Grossman, who resigned after one season at the helm of the girls tennis program.

The Fighting Braves went 9-9 overall last year under the direction of Grossman, including a 5-3 mark within the WCC to place fourth in the 9-team league behind league champion Minnewaska Area (8-0), second-place LQP-DB (7-1), and third-place Montevideo (6-2).

The Fighting Braves have nine dual matches scheduled this season, one against each of the other WCC teams along with a match against perennial sectional power Osakis.  The final matches of the season will be at a two-day WCC Team Tourney, set for Sept. 29 and Oct. 1 at a site yet to be determined...

Our Cooperation Is Rooted In A Common Story

By Reed Anfinson

Swift County Monitor-News

“One nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.” They are the concluding words of the Pledge of Allegiance. They are a myth.

“Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,” Emma Lazarus’ poem on the Statue of Liberty reads. There are those who would scratch out those words and replace them with “stay out.”

“We hold these truths to be self-evident that all men are created equal,” the Declaration of Independence reads - it is an unfulfilled promise.

“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution of the United States of America.” We are still struggling to form that “more perfect union.”

Swift County Monitor-News

The COVID-19 pandemic has meant often providing aid to those suffering from mental health challenges through telehealth services rather than seeing them in person.

Woodland Centers has had to go to almost exclusively telehealth for its services, Woodland Centers Chief Executive Office Dr. Ashley Kjos told the Swift County Board of Commissioners at their Aug. 18 meeting.

By the middle of March, as the pandemic began to spread across the country and state, Woodlands had to make the rapid transition to offer the telehealth services, Kjos said.  “This was a huge undertaking,” she said...

Swift County Monitor-News

A phased approach to maintaining its current facilities and building new ones in the future was adopted by the Swift County Board of Commissioners at its meeting Aug. 18.

It marks culmination of a process that has lasted over several years, and at one time, generated significant citizen opposition.

Back in February 2019, the Swift County board voted 3-2 to proceed with a study for construction of a $17.5 million justice center that would have housed a new jail and sheriff’s office, human services, 6W Community Corrections, the county attorney’s office and the Restorative Practices office...
