I hope there’s a library card in there! Most Washington County residents or people who own property in Washington County are entitled to a FREE library card. And, OMG, the access to information and materials that it provides is out of this world!
This past month, I had the pleasure of meeting and touring with the Park Steward of Bethke Park, Maxine Bethke. This beautiful and peaceful seven-acre park is tucked away in Oakdale, just north of Stillwater Boulevard, about halfway between Granada and Gresham avenues. It must not be missed by neighbors and nature enthusiasts.

During the first half of the boys soccer game at Tartan Sept. 17, the Titans and Hill-Murray Pioneers appeared fairly evenly matched.
Although the Pioneers led 3-1 at halftime, neither team dominated the action on the field. But the momentum shifted in the second half, and the Pioneers far outshot and outplayed the Titans, and eventually recorded a 6-1 win.
The Tartan Titans took their unbeaten 3-0 Classic Suburban Conference into the Hill-Murray Fieldhouse Sept. 19. When they emerged a couple of hours later, the Pioneers had inflicted the first blemish on their CSC record.
In gaining the 3-1 victory, the Pioneers moved their season record to 4-0 in CSC volleyball action.
The fourth week of the 2013 prep football season has marked a division among the area schools, and the only unbeaten squad around these parts is Tartan.

As Chair of the Education Finance Division, I spend much of my time at the Legislature working on early and K-12 education, and I am happy to have this role. It is a truly wonderful position to be in. But education isn’t just for children, and learning doesn’t end when a person graduates high school. For many people it continues into higher education.
