“Both 4x8 teams were phenomenal,” Maijala said, adding that the girls were just a couple seconds shy of a the 9:32 school record at 9:34.96. “It was really cool to get all their splits (individual times) — it’s amazing how fast each gal ran.” The same went for the boys, another team that qualified for state last year, and who ran faster than they were running this time last year, completing the race in 8:18.71, with anchor Connor Denman running in almost 2 minutes flat.

Little girls wearing glowing bracelets and anklets and oh-so-groovy necklaces danced to Thriller like they remembered Michael Jackson. Their dads sure did, as they joined with their daughters, making monster arms to the chorus.
For the points of interest, the In Plain Sight teams had to design and construct two items that shows how camouflage is used by organisms in nature, and then integrate them creatively in a skit.

Now 49 years old and living in New York City for the second time after a stint in Seattle, Anderson said he feels lucky that he stumbled upon jazz at that time in the early 1980s, when it wasn’t exactly mainstream music. He also feels lucky that Cloquet had the kind of music programs that gave him the opportunity to develop his interest and skills. He started with the school band program in middle school and kept going all the way through graduation.
