Two things this month have made me proud to live in Detroit Lakes.

First, the Ice Palace. It was wonderful! Thanks to all who helped on it in any way-the planners, the designers, the builders, and the viewers.

Second, congratulations to the Detroit Lakes girls' gymnastics team. Not only did they win the Class 1A championship, but they had the highest score in the state. Fourth state title in a row! Good job gymnasts, parents and coaches.-Joyce Heisserer, Detroit Lakes
