Though there were admittedly some "rocky times" during his 16½-year tenure on the Lake Park-Audubon School Board, Dale Binde said that ultimately, "it's been a fun time."


Binde attended his last meeting as a member of the LP-A board on Dec. 17, after declining to run for re-election in November.

"I made it known early on that I wasn't going to run this time (for re-election)," Binde said. "I figure it's time to move on."
