This letter is in response to an article in the March 22 Becker County Record. The article described a school board meeting in which a concerned citizen by the name of George Kohn asked if the school board had a long term plan for their building situation. After the meeting, board member Rick Olson "admonished Kohn for asking a 'silly question' about whether the district has a long range plan, adding that he should quit asking them in the future." Are you kidding me? Attempting to silence a concerned citizen?
There will be a conspicuous absence of representation for the group of citizen petitioners expressing concern for development on a natural environmental lake in Burlington Township today (Tuesday, March 28) at the Becker County Board meeting.

Last season, the Frazee softball team was a statistical aberration, winning 14 games and having only two batters hitting over .200. Lucky? No, just timely. The Lady Hornets were able to gain effective pitching from then-sophomore April Wendt, along with a bunch of well-timed hits, to key the 14-win season, said Frazee head coach Dave Trautman. "None of the stats really made any sense that we won 14 games, but we just had timely hits," Trautman said.
There could be a few low-scoring affairs for the Frazee baseball team this season, as it returms its top three pitchers, but also needs to find more runs on the scoreboard after struggling in that department a year ago. The Hornets will have the top of their rotation back on the mound, led by two-year starter Dylan Savary. He logged in 38 innings of work last year, finishing with an ERA of 3.29 and a solid 39-16 strikeouts to walk ratio.
