Match scores were 25-21, 24-26, 25-14, 25-20, in the 3-1 non- conference decision. Eagles junior Raevon Willner was brilliant with .10 kills, and teammate sopho- more Faith Forcier shined with 16 'set/assists, but the Dragons tenac- ity was more than EV-W had bar- gained for. Match Stats: Hitting: Raevon Willner 27-30 (10 kills), Tiffany Donnay 28-32 (8 kills); Serving: Faith Forcier 19-21 (3 aces), Raevon Willner 9-9; Digs: ]amie Scherer 10-14; Blocks: Brittany Hesse 4-6 (2 ace blocks); Setting: Faith Forcier 64-66 (16 assists), ]ordyn Geislinger 38-39 (7 assists). Shaking off the Tuesday night loss to Litchfield, the Eagles wel- comed in Holdingford for a Thurs- day, Sept. 19, conference clash. EV-W took the 3-2 decision in a 5-set classic battle, winning the final three in comeback fashion, and sending the fans off to the Dairy Queen, with smiles. Despite a few serving woes, EV-W came alive, scoring 7 of the last 8 third- set points on kills. Brittany Hesse's 12 kills and Raevon .Willner's 10 kills and 16 digs, helped the Eagles seal the win.

Iunt Coupona Avaflale at: Discount Ticket]; Available at: Mark Messman Superintendent, Eden Valley-Watkins Schools Sept. 20 Update Updates on Affordable Care Act (ACA) You may have recently read that parts of the Affordable Care Act have been delayed until Jan. 1, 2015. I'd like to share some of the details and clarify what parts of ACA have actually been postponed. The IRS delayed certain pro- visions of the ACA back in July of 2013. The announcement to delay the employer mandated health- care or pay penalties came from the U.S. Departmen t of Treasury. Three specific ACA requirements that were delayed until 2015 are listed below. Pay or Play Penalties - The mandate that employers must offer coverage to employees who work on average 30+ hours per week or be subject to a penalty. Affordability Penalties - The requirement that employers pro- vide affordable single coverage for employees, as well as the employer mandate that the employee's share of the lJremium must not exceed 9.5 percent of the employee's household income or face penalties. Minimum Value Penalties - Employers will not be required to provide minimum value coverage to avoid penalty. But, the employ- ers must report whether the plan provides minimum value on the Summary Benefit Coverage (SBC). Please visit HealthCare.gou, for more information, including an online application for health insurance coverage and contact information for a Health Insur- ance Marketplace in the area. Partnerships One of my greatest pleasures of serving as the Superintendent of the Eden Valley-Watkins School District is the opportunities to visit with students, staff, community members, and administrative col- leagues. I'm frequently informed of the wonderful things that occur in our school district and .around the region on a daily basis. As I reflect on recent conversa- tions and observations, it is clear that collaboration and partner- ships are vital to our success in working on behalf of all the EV-W students. As we progress into the 2013-14 school year, be sure that we are all working together to max- imize our partnerships and pro- vide our youth with opportunities. Senior of the Week The EV-W School District would like to recognize Brittany Hesse, daughter of leffrey and Connie. Brittany demonstrates student leadership and vision as she currently serves as the co- president of EV-W'Student Coun- cil. She has been a positive stu- dent role-model in and outside of the traditional classroom setting. Staff and students commend Brit- tany on her optimistic demeanor and heightened levels of respect. Congratulations! Heidi Blook ClassGradeSubject(s): Elementary Special Ed. Teacher at the Ikigh School My family: Husband Steve; children BobbL ind Nick; and foreign exchange student Kai (for this school year). I grew up in: Long Prairie, Hutchinson, and Olivia, Minn. My high school: OHS: Olivia High School. College: St. Cloud State University. My academic achievements: I graduated from SCSU, magna cure laude, while working full- time and commuting. Other life achievements: My husband and I built a home about 15 years; we had a contractor, but did some work ourselves. IfI had the opportunity, I would build another home and, yes, there are things I would do differently. My favorite school experience (as a student): Working summers at my high school. I was hired as a painter, so I enjoyed getting to know and work with the school staff. My favorite school experience (as a teacher): I enjoy seeing stu- dents learn in a hands-on manner, therefore, I encourage field trips so students can take what has been taught in the classroom and apply it to real life. Something most people don't know about me: I love living in a small town and the residents of EV and Watkins are great people; however, I enjoy the opportunities a big has to offer.., so I will live here and visit the big city.
