Where do you work and what do you love most about your job? I am a social worker with Goodhue County Health and Human Services and work as an adult mental health case manager. I help people to manage their mental illness so they can participate more fully in their lives and the community. It's a good feeling to be able to help people, but the best part of the job is that I am able to witness every day the courage people show in facing their disabilities and working hard to have the best lives they can. They are an inspiration to me.
Where do you go to school and what do you love most about it? I am a sophomore at Zumbrota Mazeppa High School. I think the things I love the most about my school is the positive atmosphere, the opportunities we have for extra curricular activities and athletics, and how there's a place for everyone here. What's your favorite food, book or movie? My favorite food would have to be probably anything Italian, or chocolate. Are you a morning person or a night owl?

Share what makes it special. My favorite spot in Red Wing other than the school is Bay Point park. My wife and I enjoy the river in the summer. We put our boat in at that access in the summer and during the winter months you will find us down on the ice by the bulkheads fishing.

My name is Marcia Krause and I am a Wacouta Township resident. I have lived in the same home for almost 55 years. I attended the Goodhue County commissioner meeting Tuesday, March 21, where the proposed Wildwood Community Solar Garden was on the agenda. I have many concerns in regards to this proposed solar garden. Mark Andrew, from GreenMark Solar, as the applicant, and Howard Stenerson, the landowner, discussed with the board what their plan entails. "The goal is to generate clean, renewable energy," Andrew said.
