Thursday, October 22, 2009 ---e---- ! i -, -1 Tri-County News Kimball, MN pox IS I t rage i i Footba|l Jason Mortenson, Co-Head Football Coach The Kimball cubs fell to BBE 0-15 last Wednesday night. The cubs seemed shell-shocked when BBE put 15 on th~ board in the first quarter because of cub misques. But for the first time, all season the defense really stiffened up and wouldn't allow anything else for the rest of the game. Other than one blown cover- age which gave a touchdown to BBE, the defense played their fin- est game all year by far. As a unit, they found that they can hit and tackle. The pursuit to the ball and the effort was excellent. Tyler Loch led the team with 20 tackles and Travis Schiefelbein was next with 15. Every member of the defense will receive a skull sticker for their helmets for their efforts against the jaguars. Special teams were consis- tent after the long snap in the first quarter that went over the punter's head which gave BBE two points from the safety. Offensively, let's just say Wednesday was not the night to have seven turnovers, on one fumble in particular that BBE fell on in the endzone for a touch- down. We had too many misques and lacked intensity in the line to get the running game going. Last Wednesday's was another game where the cubs have yet to show a complete game on all three sides of the ball. Yet, a big step was taken on the defensive side and hopefully just in time for the play- offs. Kimball's last regular season game is in Kimball versus Rock- ford at 7 p.m. Tuesday night, Oct. 20. ieyball Tabitha Mortenson, Co-Hdad Volleyball Coach The ball team loses a heartbreaker for the conference title to BBE on Tuesday, Oct. 13, 2009. The Cubs came out strong leading most of the first set, and at one point was up 23-20. A momentum swing shifted on a lift call, and the Cubs couldn't bounce back. The Cubs lost the first set 23-25.

Theylost the second set 17-25. With a switch in the line up, the Cubs rejuvenated their energy, pushing hard in aggressive swinging and serving. The Cubs won the third set 25-22. In the fourth and final set of the match, BBE found their rhythm and the Cubs just couldn't Volleyball ~Kim Pelzer, C-Squall Volleyball Coach C-team VB, Cubs lose 1, win 1, lose 1 The Cubs traveled to BBE Tues- day, Oct. 13, for a conference match against the BBE Jaguars. Kimball was anxious and ready to play the Jags, to see what skills they had. Kimball played a tough match, but in the end, lost in three sets. Set one started slowly and hesitantly for the Cubs, but they finished with a decent score of 17, then in Set two, they came out to win, and did by a score of 25-19. That brought set three, and the Cubs showed a desire to win and led 12-9. It looked like it could be a victory, however, unforced errors and being unable to stop one server who went five straight serves, cost the Cubs a win. Set three game score was 12-15.

All rights reservecl, do. ~s a r~istevnd mark of Blue Cross and Blue Shield of K Rock outcrops are Along the upper Minnesota River Valley, from New Ulm to Ortonville, is a linear stretch of low, rounded gneiss and granite knobs called outcrops. Some of these rocks have been here for as long as 3.5 billion years, nearly a billion years longer than the bed- rock visible in the Boundary Water Canoe Area Wilderness. Fred Harris, a DNR plant ecol- ogist, is intimately familiar with these rock outcrops and the unique plant and animal commu- nities that inhabit them. And, he is concerned about their future. "Federal highway construction standards now require crushed bedrock instead of gravel and it can be tempting for landown- ers to want to open up their rock outcrops to mining," Harris said. "While we need to have mining to supply highway rock, we also need to preserve these ancient outcrops when we can" ancient, unique When the last glaciers retreated from this area some 12,000 years ago, the "massive erosional forces of Glacial River Warren exposed and abraded this ancient bedrock," Harris explained. "It's amazing that anything can grow or live on them but they are actually home to about 15 rare plant species." Shallow soils that cover por- tions of rock outcrops retain lit- tle moisture for plant growth yet three species of drought-adapted cacti and the small flameflower manage to thrive. And in the spring, when shallow depressions in the rock accumulate water, these ephemeral (or vernal) pools support a surprising diversity of aquatic plants. Rock outcrops are also home to the tiny fairy shrimp and clam shrimp, as well as the five-lined skink, a rare lizard that is active from May through August and then hibernates for eight months below the frost line in bedrock cracks or small animal burrows. Harris said he has also been jolted on occasion while scanning outcrop surfaces for tiny plants by "the sudden flush of a common nighthawk disturbed from incubat- ing its eggs on the bedrock. Both the bird and its' eggs are mottled to blend in with the surrounding pit- ted and lichen-studded rock." "Rock outcrops," Harris said, "are ecologically amazing places. And most Minnesotans don't even know they exist." TOY Deadlirte: 2 p.rq. Moqdays HIGH-SPEED INTERNET IS HERE! DITCH YOUR DIAL'UP AND START ENJOYING THE INTERNET AGAIN.
