For the second year, Clearwater-Orchard is launching its Girls On The Run (GOTR) program, which promotes healthy choices and healthy living.
Shelly Mlnarik helped start the local (GOTR) program last school year, which teaches girls life skills through dynamic, interactive lessons and running games. The curriculum includes three parts - understanding ourselves, valuing relationships and teamwork and understanding how we connect with and shape the world at large.
Registration this year is opening on Sunday, January 15, and won't be open for long, so don't miss the opportunity to be a part of this positive program. The program is open to grades 3-6, with a registration fee of $60. However, Mlnarik has been working with various organizations to reduce the registration cost to $40. This fee covers insurance, curriculum, supplies, t-shirts, bags and other materials.
For the time being, the group will meet on Tuesday and Thursday, although halfway through the season the days may change to Monday and Thursday.
Although the name implies a lot of running, GOTR is about more than logging in miles. GOTR focuses on teaching girls to be joyful, healthy and confident problem solvers as well as independent thinkers

The Clearwater annual rodeo is reaching a big milestone this summer and bringing in a big name to help them celebrate.
The rodeo will celebrate it's 50th anniversary this summer. To commemorate the event, Nashville recording song writer and recording artist Eric Paslay will headline a Saturday night concert on Main Street following the rodeo. Paslay is known for his hits, including "Friday Night," "She Don't Love You," "Song About A Girl" and his newest single, "Angels In This Town."
Jake Owen, Rascal Flatts, Love and Theft and the Eli Young Band have all scored No. 1 singles thanks to Paslay’s songwriting prowess, but fans who have seen him onstage will testify there is so much more to the tall, Texas redhead than his excellent songwriting chops. Paslay is a charismatic performer and a potent vocalist who knows how to connect with an audience. When his single “Friday Night” reached the No. 1 spot, Paslay arrived as an artist in his own right.
Emmet Bower Band will take the stage as the opening act for Paslay and James Lee Band will continue the party until 1 a.m.
On Friday, Main Street will still be busy as they will hose a Battle of the Bands, featuring Emmet Bower Band and James Lee Band.
It was a high-scoring affair when Clearwater-Orchard and Elkhorn Valley clashed in the boys consolation game of the Cyclone Holiday Tournament Thursday evening.
Both teams shot well from the floor, with the Cyclones hitting 45 percent of their shots and the Falcons hitting on 40 percent of theirs, but it was Clearwater-Orchard who was able to pull away late thanks to a 21-point fourth quarter for a 65-54 victory.
Four Cyclones reached double figures on the night, led by Jacob Long's 18 points. Ryan Wilhelm added 16 points off the bench, Travis Kerkman added 12 and Blake Hoke finished with 11. Long and Wilhelm were both strong on the glass as well, pulling in seven rebounds each. Long also dished out five assists and came away with five steals.
Earlier in the day, the Cyclone girls took on Chambers/Wheeler Central for third place. Both teams played well throughout, with a big second quarter from the Renegades being the difference as they downed Clearwater-Orchard 52-41.
Leading the way for the Cyclones was once again senior Kinzly Macke with 17 points on eight of 16 shooting. She added six rebounds and four steals in the loss. Fellow senior Allee Snider added nine points and seven boards on the night.
The Lady Cyclones five-game winning streak came to an abrupt halt Wednesday night in their own holiday tournament.
Ewing came to town on a mission to take down Clearwater-Orchard and did just that in a 42-35 win. The Cyclones struggled from the floor, shooting just 26 percent from the game. Through three quarters, they were only able to muster up 20 points. They made their attempt at a comeback in the fourth quarter with 15 points, but unfortunately it was too late for the Cyclones.
Kinzly Macke once again posted a strong game, scoring 13 points and adding eight rebounds, three assists and three steals. Kylie Thiele added 10 points and provided strong defense, particularly in the fourth quarter. She pulled in five steals and looked to be willing the Cyclones back into the game before picking up her fifth foul.
The Cyclones now play Chambers/Wheeler Central on Thursday at 3 p.m. for third place.
In the boys bracket later in the night, it was a similar story as the Cyclones shot just 27 percent from the floor. They were still able to keep the game tight throughout, including holding a 42-41 lead with just under two minutes remaining. However, Ewing was able to hit a couple of crucial late shots while Clearwater-Orchard missed a few late free throws to give Ewing the 48-44 win.
Blake Hoke and Liam Odell finished the night with 12 and 11 points, respectively to lead all Cyclone scorers. Travis Kerkman was fantastic while cleaning up in the paint, racking up a season-high 21 rebounds, including seven on the offensive end. He also added seven points, despite shooting just 20 percent on the night.
The loss drops the Cyclones into the third place game against Elkhorn Valley at 4:30 p.m. on Thursday.
Two Clearwater-Orchard grapplers returned for the rescheduled Elgin Public/Pope John Tournament on Thursday with some hardware.
Dominic Bolling and Zach Hoffman finished the meet at fourth place at 170 and 285, respectively.
Bolling made his way through the bracket in comeback fashion. After dropping his first three matches, he earned a forfeit win over Palmer’s Hunter Reimers. That set him up with Quin Otto of Twin River. Bolling got the best of Otto, taking him down by way of pin at the 4:25 mark of the match.
Hoffman started the day with a first-round bye before falling to Cole Rosenkrans of St. Mary’s in a tie-breaker. He then had two more byes before earning a win over Randolph’s Dalton Rath by a medical forfeit. That put Hoffman in the third-place match against Jade Buss of West Holt, eventually falling 1-0.
Clay Thiele added three wins for the Cyclones. Codey Snider and Tommie Peed each took home two wins on the day.
The Cyclones will return to action on January 5 at the Elkhorn Valley Triangular.

With Christmas time here Clearwater-Orchard Schools certainly showed their spirit last week. They’ve kicked off the Christmas season with a joyful Christmas concert last Monday, and now students are getting ready for the holiday season in many different ways.
As you walk through the schools, you will notice an abundance of excited little kids bringing in presents of all shapes and sizes for their gift exchange. While the elementary bring their gifts a couple of days early, you will notice that the high school students do not bring their gifts until the last day of school. Students of all ages are eager to give and receive gifts to kick off their Christmas vacation.
Gifts are not the only holiday cheer one will find within the walls of the schools. Students are starting to show their spirit by wearing cheerful holiday outfits that come in a variety of options. So far, it ranges from character Christmas t-shirts, sweatshirts, and fun holiday socks. However, there are those few students who have gone above and beyond to spread their Christmas spirit by wearing a playful Christmas onesie. How can one not be jolly with so much holiday cheer walking through the halls?
On Wednesday students were treated for their hard work by a movie, popcorn, and candy. This will be a good way to relieve all that stress from studying and a good way to end the semester. School will also end at noon on Wednesday for the kids, which is a treat to everyone.
Christmas is a joyful holiday to spread kindness, joy, and cheer. Clearwater-Orchard Schools have these traits covered. We all wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Taxes and costs associated with combining Clearwater-Orchard and Ewing were discussed Monday night as four different school and advisory boards sat in front of dozens of community members.
But there was one resounding theme at the meeting held at in the Clearwater gymnasium - Students come first.
Dr. Gerald Ehlers answered questions about the feasibility study he presented in early December, and, just like he did the first time he presented, made clear the focus of the project was student achievement.
“We need to focus on the kids, and what we can do by working together, we all win,” said Ehlers. “Kids win, parents win, patrons win, communities win. Are there sacrifices to get there? Yes, there are.”
Ehlers said that it can be difficult to make decisions with large amounts of money affecting many different communities. However, he said what’s most important is how it will affect students in the district.
“That’s why we are here,” Ehlers said to the crowd at Monday night’s meeting. “To give them (students) every opportunity we can. Of course, within the financial means we have in doing so.”
Most of the meeting was spent on three primary issues — cost of a new 7-12 building, whether Ewing’s facility should be considered and what is the timeline for potential changes.
How much would a new building cost?
Concept C gave the districts two options for new facilities.
One option allowed each community to keep PK-4 with a new 5-12 building constructed somewhere between Clearwater, Orchard and Ewing. It’s often called a cornfield school because there is no town, just a school. The second option was for an entirely new PK-12 facility at that location.
Ehlers said he recalculated those figures and needed to correct the tax rate on a new facility.
Ehlers explained that the initial dollar amount was on the high side, and the revised plan, with a new PK-12 building, is more generic and will be on the low side. He reduced the number of classrooms only to the necessary amount.
This reduction, which didn’t include rooms for art, band or other non-core classes, brought the cost down for a PK-12 facility from nearly $39 million to $29 million. Ehlers said he made the reduction to show that the cost estimate should be somewhere between $29 million and $39 million for a new facility.The 5-12 changed from $30.5 million to $23 million. A 7-12 bare-bones facility would run about $22 million, he said.
“Once you get an architect on board, and start redoing your stats, find out exactly what your needs are, how much storage space, how big of classrooms do you need, those types of things,” he said. “He will design one specifically with you in mind.”
He said the bond necessary to build a new 7-12 building would add 13 to 14 cents to the general fund tax levy. A new PK-12 facility would add 18 cents, and a new 5-12 building would add 14 to 15 cents.
New to the scenario was a 7-12 building, which wasn’t presented on the original study. Ehlers said that 5-6 grades are taught independently,and have no need to be with either high school or elementary grades. But the 7-12 teachers usually teach multiple grades and multiple classes.
Ehlers said separating the 5-6 from the original 5-12 scenario would also provide an administrative cost reduction since only one principal would be needed at a 7-12 facility as compared to needing two for a 5-12 facility.
Would Ewing have enough room for pre-K-4th grades in its building?
Concept B presented in the study offered six options for housing students grades 5-8 and 9-12. Four of the options included having students in Ewing, but questions were raised if Ewing’s facility was large enough.
Ehlers said each K-4th grade class would require two classrooms, with a classroom for pre-kindergarten as well.
“It would take 11 classrooms in addition to the additional classrooms they would need the computer room, art room, special ed room, all your physical education types of rooms,” Ehlers said. “All of those rooms are going to be needed at that site.”
Currently, Ewing has six classrooms. Ewing also has the possibility of making two classrooms out of the shop room, leaving the total at eight. All of the options Ehlers considered for Concept B during the feasibility study did not include the use of the old elementary building at Ewing.
With that, Ehlers said Ewing’s facility remains questionable as a viable option.
“The bottom line of that is, unless you want to use the old elementary at Ewing, the pre K-4, in their current secondary building would not be great,” concluded Ehlers.
Is It Time To Include Ewing?
Ehlers said for a new PK-12 facility, utilities would be less costly due to only having one location compared to three (Clearwater, Orchard and Ewing). Also, he said a cornfield school would need to acquire land and would also have more transportation fees to consider.
Duane Liska of Verdigre asked Superintendent Dale Martin to clarify Ewing’s involvement since they have not asked to be part of the district and they have not been invited.
“Right now obviously we’re looking at feasibility to actually do it,” Martin said. “Can we use current facilities or the other option of building. What does that look like? What does it cost?
Two Ewing board members were present, but Martin said they were not present as a board and could not participate in the meeting.
“That might be the logical next step to have them involved as a board to see what we can work out in detail,” Martin said.
He asked board members whether they agreed to have Ewing’s board more involved at this point. While no vote was taken, the consensus among members was favorable to reaching out to Ewing.
“I will talk to their administration and see where they want to go with that. And that will somewhat decide where we meet or when we meet next,” he said. “I think we need to keep moving with this process.”
Martin said after hearing from Ewing, board members should plan to make some decisions on the future next month.
As for when changes that include Ewing could occur, Martin said nothing could happen for 2017-18; however, a merger could occur for the 2018-19 school year. As for a new facility, Ehlers said that would be three years down the road if approved soon.
A Clearwater graduate helped cook for a cause recently at a Columbus competitive cooking event.
Adam Wolfe, a 1998 Clearwater graduate owns WolfenDitters with Brent Ditter and was one of several competitive cookers who gathered in Jason Whitmore’s driveway in Columbus on a recent weekend to cook turkeys and side dishes on their smokers.
Wolfe and Ditter won the rumble competition.
The group also accepted donations from the public which they were accepting from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. when they delivered the food to Center for Survivors.
Center for Survivors volunteer Traci Pilar said the support from the community in the form of donations, and the generosity of the pitmasters has been overwhelming. Pilar stars the Center is very thankful for all the assistance and says the food and supplies they received will help victims and their families well through the holiday season.
This was the second year of the event, and Whitmore says working with the Center for Survivors has been a positive experience.

Questions and answers was the theme of the Unified board’s monthly meeting on Wednesday, as they prepared to meet with Dr. Gerald Ehlers on Monday, December 19th for further clarification on the feasibility study.
“That’s what we’ll do Monday, too,” said superintendent Dale Martin. “That chance to ask him specific things.”
A major clarifying point that the board briefly discussed was the bond issue, which was calculated including Verdigre’s tax levy.
“I guess I was surprised that as many as these as he has done, he through the bond issue on the wrong tax base,” said Terri Hergert. “Because he included Verdigre in that and he shouldn’t have.”
“He noticed that right at the end of the meeting, finally he saw it once it got up there,” explained Martin. “ . . . He caught it that night but it was right at the end. . . and he sent out the correction fairly soon. And that’s the key, we want to get accurate information as much as we can.”
Projected enrollment numbers were also a topic of discussion, as the numbers show that significant change could be coming in the numbers in Orchard and affect site location for Clearwater-Orchard.
“What’s going to happen with enrollment? We have seen a few small increases in kids in Orchard with some young families moving back, how much that’s going to be we don’t know some of it,” said Martin. “I took a look at some of these families and the kids, and I think, are we going to have all these kids come at both Clearwater and Orchard? Maybe, maybe not. With option enrollment being so easily done we just don’t know. If it says 20 kids, it might be less than 20 . . . or it might be more . . . As you look at projections, I guess keep those things in mind that it’s not cut and dry.”
As for Ewing, the school board is still discussing the future and looking to schedule a follow-up meeting with Ehlers.
“Well, I sense that probably their first choice would be a new building,” said Joe Thiele. “But I don’t know that they’ve ruled out a second choice either . . . I hear a little talk even in Clearwater about looking into a new building a little further just to get some firm numbers.”
The board discussed some questions regarding a new facility, including how the building estimates shown on the feasibility study were made and the costs of land acquisition.
“My opinion is that our first option should be what can we do to utilize what we have for existing facilities before we consider building a new facility,” said Terry Hergert. “To me there’s nothing wrong with our buildings, to me there’s no need to build more. We need to explore all of our options on how to utilize what we already have . . . You have to consider all three sites.”
Peggy Liska, a Verdigre board member, brought up the possibility of the high school in one town, middle school in the other and Pre K-4 in the third town. That’s an option the feasibility study didn’t consider, as the board previously said they did not think the three towns would send elementary students to another site.
“I don’t think it was in there because we would like to keep our Pre K-4 at home,” said Hergert, “if at all possible, at all three sites.
“I think it’s a great time to throw everything on the table,” said Thiele.
Hergert also suggested they discuss finding a central location for all three schools--Clearwater-Orchard, Ewing and Verdigre.
Martin said that he does not see any actions being taken with Ewing for next school year, and instead believes site location should be the Unified board’s priority.
“I would say we need to keep moving forward with our talks here. We need to have a decision by January if we’re going to do something different staffing wise,” said Martin. “I think Ewing is looking at that too. What is Clearwater-Orchard going to do?”
The board considered various options, including separating the two sites, which would add a lot of expenses to both sites, and site rotation.
“Why isn’t leaving it the way it is an option,” asked Marty Kerkman. “The numbers say that down the road the high school will be in Orchard.”
Liska agreed, saying, “If you left it the way it is now and say in five years the high school moves to orchard it will stay there indefinitely until there’s a significant change in numbers again.”
Terra Willaby and Hergert members were unsure that the predictions are accurate and that significant change will really move the high school to Orchard eventually.
“After two years of talking about this, nobody’s come up with anything better,” said Kerkman.
The board continued discussing options, and eventually Martin brought their attention to fact that although site location is a difficult discussion, the board will have to make a decision in the next couple meetings.
“I think the question’s gonna be are we going to have agreement on whatever we come up with. That’s important. We have to come up with something that has consensus with all three of the schools, especially Clearwater-Orchard,” said Martin. “Because it affects all three--unification could be affected by this as well. I think down the road if people aren’t happy with where it’s at we could definitely have some issues. I think we have to come up with something the best we can, that we can agree to. I don’t disagree that nobody’s been able to come up with anything. I’ve racked my brain, Marty, many times trying to come up with a different option that would satisfy all sides on this. I worry about a lot of things if we do split apart.”
The board ultimately moved on without making any decisions and agreed to tackle the issue of site location.
Ehlers will meet with the board on Monday, December 19th at 6 p.m. in Clearwater to address any questions the board might have. The meeting is also open to the public.
The next Unified Board meeting will be on January 16, in Orchard at 6 p.m.
