Thumbs up to everyone who turned out for the 10th anniversary observance of the commissioning of the Iowa Lakes Community College wind turbine at the Sustainable Energy Resources and Technologies Center Monday. This was a great event plus a chance to see just how much progress the college has made since the turbine first began turning 10 years ago.

Thumbs up to the Estherville Lincoln Central Education Association and district officials who exchanged initial proposals Tuesday. An air of cooperation has pervaded negotiations over the past few years as both teachers and the district work toward a common goal - the good of the students.
