By a 4-3 vote Monday, the Ellsworth Village Board rescinded the ordinance requiring 2,000 persons per Class A license within the village. The tie vote of the board was broken by Village President Gerald DeWolfe. He stated, before the vote was taken, he was in favor of removing the ordinance. "It's a new millenium and I think it's time we move forward with this," DeWolfe said.
The shortened 2013 spring prep sports season calls for experienced teams and athletes to make up the difference in lack of games.
The Ellsworth Village Board unanimously agreed Monday to amend a developer's agreement which will push back the opening of the new McDonald's Restaurant to August. The developers, Phyllis and Daniel Acker of Stanley, had requested the change as a contingency. They still hope to have the building open by July, as construction on the Midway project has been slowed down due to continued cold weather well past the first day of spring. The board set April 20-27 for village's spring clean-up. The village demo site will be open from noon-8 p.m. Monday through Friday and Saturday from 8 a.m.
The Ellsworth Village Board Monday approved establishing no-parking zones on Hwy. 10-63 on both the north and south side from Piety Street to Nilssen's Foods's driveway. Members approved authorizing Village President Gerald DeWolfe to enter into a Memorandum of Agreement with the Wisconsin Department of Transportation establishing the no parking zones on 10-63. This is being done as new turn lanes will be installed on 10-63 in the midway section by June in time for the opening of the new McDonald's restaurant. The board also approved plans for the 2013 Cheese Curd Festival.
Saturday's WIAA individual wrestling sectionals at hand and there will be 26 wrestlers from Pierce County trying to make it to Madison. Ellsworth and Prescott will be at the WIAA Division 2 Somerset Sectional which begins at 11 a.m. and Spring Valley/Elmwood is at the WIAA Division 3 Independence/Gilmanton Sectional which will be held at Osseo-Fairchild High School in Osseo. The meet starts at 10 a.m. Two local regional champions from last weekend have good chances of making to state.
Ellsworth's upper weight wrestlers delivered the decisive strike on Amery in the finals of the WIAA Division 2 Ellsworth Team Sectional Tuesday evening in front of a big crowd at Ellsworth High School. With the sectional finals dual meet starting at 106, Amery led 16-12 after 145 pounds. But the Panthers won six out of the next seven matches, recording four pins in the process to win their eighth straight sectional title by a 45-22 score. Ellsworth will be making its 12th appearance in the state team tournament. EHS, 13-5 overall, will face No.
You can excuse head coach Carter Turner for looking off into the distant future, however briefly, to look at the status of the Spring Valley/Elmwood wrestling program. Not only did the Redbirds win their second straight Dunn-St. Croix Conference dual meet title, first-ever sectional title and team state tournament appearance brought out a record number of wrestlers to the team, but also has shaped it into more than just a flash-in-the-pan. "We have a big freshman class, which is nice, with some very skilled wrestlers in it," Turner said.
