Wanted man may be here
A warrant for the arrest of 29-year-old James Lee Samide of Marshall has been issued by the Lyon County District Court and police believe he may be in Minneota.
He’s wanted for the issuance of worthless checks and also has a warrant for burglary. He is 5-5, 150 pounds with blonde hair and hazel eyes.
Anyone seeing this man should call 9-1-1.
Pool needs repair

On Saturday dozens of girls, their parents and fans gathered to watch an outdoor swimming meet at the Minneota Pool.
That’s proof, as Minneota Mayor Paul Larson said, “That the community has determined they want a pool.”
So the city council has taken the need for extensive pool improvements under advisement.
How extensive? As much as $85,000. If they do only part of the job, it could be less.
Bob LaDuke of Signature Aquatics told the council the existing pool filter and heater are in bad shape. LaDuke proposed a double filter system for larger capacity at $45,000 to $49,000 and a heater from $18,000 to $20,000.
Other possible items would include an “Auto Fill for the main pool,” and a chlorine system for the main and wading pools.
Councilman Tony Esping asked, “If we did all this, what would we have?”
“The outside of your pool is excellent,” said Nick Nowacki of USAquatics of Delano. “The shell is in very good condition,” he added.
The city council will take the repair issue under advisement.
Larson 15th at state open golf

Minneota native Jesse Larson finished tied for 15th place at the Minnesota State Open Championship last weekend at the Hastings Country Club.

"I thought I played well," Larson told The Mascot.

He also was 24th last week in the Minnesota Amateur Golf Tournament.

The full week of golf came after he won the Wynston Boe Tournament in Minneota last Sunday.

"I felt I can compete at this level," Larson said about the State Open and the Amateur tournaments.

At the Open, he was in second place after the first round when he golfed a 68. He followed up with 74 and 72 and fell back to 15th place.

"I felt validated," he said after the good showing. "I hit the ball well enough to compete but I did not putt as well," he added.

In the Amateur event he shot a 74, 67 and 72 for 24th place.
