By Ric Koehn, Coach High School Soccer The Chain of Lakes High School team played two games this past week, starting with a rematch versus Central Minnesota Christian of Prinsburg on Monday, Sept. 26. Earlier this year the Roosters lost to CMC 6-0 in Prinsburg, but this time they had them at home. The first half was almost an exact replica of the first game. The Bluejays scored half- way through the first half and then added two more goals before half time to take a 3-0 lead. But this is where things changed. The Roosters played their best soc- cer of the season in the second half, thwarting CMC time after time and finally added a goal from George Matua (Kimball) to make the final score 3-1, a vast improve- ment over the first meeting. Carl Blanchard (Kimball) was master- ful in goal for the Roosters, sub- bing for an injured Hunter Jaynes (Paynesville). Wednesday, Sept. 28, Chain of Lakes hosted a new oppo- nent, Maplewood Academy of Hutchinson. MA proved to be a very tough team, and the Roosters suffered a 5-0 defeat. The Roosters faced the Warriors of Cambridge Christian School Monday, Oct. 3, in Paynesville, seeking revenge for a 2-1 loss earlier in the fall. Cambridge Christian won 2-1. Middle School Soccer The Chain of Lakes 3-6 grad- ers played their one and only pure elementary game Thursday, Sept. 29, at Cambridge Christian School. The Junior Roosters showed that they have a great deal of talent in a game that they dominated from the beginning. Alder Ertl (Eden Valley/ Watkins) scored in the first half. Lofting a ball from the left side of the goal he got the ball up and over the goalie and into the net. Avery Karol (Paynesville) make a great save on a break away to keep the score 1-0 at the half. The domination contin- ued in the second half. Gabriel Voss (Paynesville) blocked a goal kick and then beat the goalie to make the score 2-0. Jose Anaya (Paynesville) completed the Roosters scor- ing with penalty kick before the Warriors scored late in the game to break the shutout, leaving the final score 3-1. Saturday, Oct. 1 the Roosters, with seventh- and eighth-grad- ers added, played Community Christian of Willmar in Paynesville. The Roosters got off to another 1-0 half time lead on a goal from Jacob Beck (Kimball). But theywere not able to hold on to the lead. CCS scored three times in the second half to give them a 3-1 victory. The Middle School is in action at home Thursday, Oct. 6, ver- sus Stride Academy of St. Cloud at 4:30. to Be O#r Pat/ t!

Each year, 4-H selects a theme for National 4-H Week and this year's theme is "#4HGrown." Meeker County is celebrating the 4-H youth who have made an impact on the community, and are step- ping up to the challenges of a complex and changing world. Throughout the week, 4-H youth will be visiting schools across the county to share why they partici- pate in 4-H. The celebration will culminate for Meeker County at the Annual Awards Banquet on ~Oct. 9, at Kimball Area High ~School's Cafetorium at 2 p.m. The 'public is invited to attend and help honor our 4-H youth. The 4H Grow True Leaders "Campaign is the first of its kind for National 4H Council - a .national, multi-platform initia- tive that will support the organi- zation's growth goals of empower- ing 10 million youth by 2025 (a 67 percent increase). The campaign and the event are designed to give young people across the nation a forum to put their voices into pos- itive action and rally the nation to invest in the next generation of true leaders. "Minnesota 4-H Youth Development is so excited about the 4-H Grow True Leaders Campaign, that it has set as an initiative the engagement of first generation young people and their families. We believe that in Minnesota we have an opportu- nity to Grow more True Leaders by seeking out and engaging young people who may have chosen not to be involved in 4-H and/or his- toricallywe have not served them" said Dorothy McCargo Freeman, State 4-H Director. The 4-H youth development program provides "learn by doing" experiences to encour- age youth to experiment, inno- vate and think independently. 4-H programs are offered through school-based, after-school and camp settings and within com- munity clubs, where groups meet regularly to work on projects, 4-H Week Oct. 2-8 perform community service and develop leadership skills. Through this unique process, youth obtain essential life skills such as prob- lem solving, decision making, coping and communicating. "4-H provides positive non- school learning opportunities that are critical for the devel- opment of young people," said Dorothy McCargo Freeman, State 4-H Youth Development Program Director. "As a result, 4-H youth are able to contribute and make a difference in positive ways in their homes, schools and communities throughout Minnesota." Today's 4-H projects include the traditional and still popular agriculture and animal science projects. But 4-H youth also work on cutting-edge technology proj- ects, such as aquatic robotics, dig- ital photography, community ser- vice and environmental projects, such as maintaining local hik- ing trails and testing water in area streams for contaminants. "Through showing animals, working on projects, attending leadership retreats, completing service projects, and serving as youth leader as an officer and ambassador, 4-H has given me many opportunities to learn life skills, make new friends, and become a strong leader," said Laura Shoutz, Meeker County 4-H Member. Recent findings from Tufts University's 4-H Study of Positive Youth Development indicate that young people in 4-H are three times more likely to contribute to their communities than youth not participating in 4-H. Notably, the Tufts research discovered that the structured learning, encour- agement and adult mentoring that 4-H'ers receive play a vital role in helping them actively con- tribute to their communities. In Meeker County, more than 350 4-H members and 110 volunteers are involved in 4H. Also during National 4-H Week, hundreds of thousands of youth from all around the nation will complete a single, innovative experiment on 4-H National Youth Science Day, which will be held on Wednesday, Oct. 5, 2016.

Through this unique process, youth obtain essential life skills such as problem solving, decision making, coping and communicat- ing that prepare them to succeed in their school, college, commu- nity and careers. Research shows that youth who participate in 4-H have better grades and are more emotionally engaged with school, are more than twice as likely to be civically active and contrib- ute to their communities, and are 47-percent less likely to have risky or problem behaviors.
