The Hutchinson boys basketball team begins a new era under a new head coach this season as Detroit Lakes native Markus Okeson takes the helm. While he may not be a familiar face to Hutchinson, he is no stranger in the Minnesota basketball community.
Following the Nov. 4 election in which he defeated DFL challenger Steven Schiroo with 67.22 percent of the vote to retain his seat representing Minnesota District 18A, Rep. Dean Urdahl is returning to his position as chairman of the committee responsible for allocating sales-tax revenue generated by the Legacy Amendment.
Hutchinson’s reputation as a city welcoming two-wheeled, human-powered transportation got a shot in the legs Tuesday. The League of American Bicyclists bestowed its Bicycle-Friendly Community designation upon it.
