For the 'love of the ride'

Burnout. Cyclists try to pop their tire (right).

The sound of motorcycles permeated the Minneota air on Saturday as Minneota’s ninth annual Memorial Run began.
Motorcyclists signed in early, and yet there was a mad dash for registration as the one o’clock hour approached.
Much like going to church, most of the cyclists rushed in at the last minute.
Organizers did not care, for it was soon evident that this would be one of Minneota’s best runs yet.
While the majority of the riders were on Harley Davidson machines, there were a few other types of cycles in the mix, as well. There may have been a little ‘ribbing’ about this, but it was still a great day for a motorcycle ride.
As the motorcycles headed out of town, some 293 had signed up, but committee members were sure there would still be a few more.

After negotiating for a couple of hours Monday night, the Minneota City Council and Sarah Friesen have agreed on terms to make her the next city administrator.
There were about eight different areas where the two parties differed when negotiations began.
In the end, the Minneota Council and Friesen settled on a $52,319 base salary with a potential five percent increase one year from now if she gets a favorable review.

An air of relaxation hits you when you open the door to  Prairie Winds Wellness here in Minneota.  
Doctor Stephanie Vlaminck greeted folks on Monday, the opening day of the new business on Highway 68. “I’m really pumped,” she said with glee. It’s been a couple of fantastic weeks getting this ready and I couldn’t have done it without my family.”
Vlaminck, a Doctor of Chiropractic, purchased the former Gene’s Sporting Goods store on April 26, and it has been ‘all hands to the task’ ever since.
While the street project has been an eyesore out the new front windows of the place, Vlaminck was quick to note that it was also helpful.
