Highway 25 Improvement Open House planned for Thursday Evening in Monticello  

Area residents and business owners are encouraged to attend an open house this week to learn details about two road projects slated for this spring and summer on Highway 25 in Monticello. One project will resurface Highway 25 between I-94 and County Road 106, or 85th Street Northeast in Monticello, and at the same time will extend the 4-lane segment of Highway 25 westward to County Road 106, along with other improvements. MnDOT will be the lead agency on the project, which will begin in April. The other project will improve the Highway 25 County Road 75, or Broadway Avenue intersection in downtown Monticello. The City of Monticello will lead that project, which is expected to begin later in the summer. Those attending the open house will be able to view displays, learn how the projects may affect their travel, take home project handouts, provide comments and direct questions to MnDOT and officials with the City of Monticello. The open house will be held Thursday from 6 to 8 PM at the Monticello Community Center. For more information, log onto; www.mndot.gov, or call the City of Monticello at (763) 295-2711.

Wright-Hennepin Reminds Students of Deadline for Applications for Youth Tour of Nation's Capitol 

Officials with Wright-Hennepin Cooperative Electric Association remind high school juniors in our area that there is still time to get applications in to be considered for selection for the annual Electric Cooperative Youth Tour program, held in Washington, D. C. Each year, the cooperative sponsors one high school junior from its electric service territory to attend the program in the nation's capitol along with some 1500 other students from 43 states. The youth tour gives high school students a glimpse at the country's governmental system, and a flavor for the nation's history. Students selected to participate in the program have the opportunity to travel to Capitol Hill to meet some of Minnesota's representatives and senators. The students also visit the Jefferson and Lincoln memorials, Arlington National Cemetery, the Smithsonian Museum and more. This year's trip will be from June 13th to the 18th. High school juniors are encouraged to submit an application for a chance to be selected for the all-expenses paid trip. Students should get an application online, and submit it by mail with a postmark no later than March 6th. For more information, log onto; www.youthtour.coop.
