Mohall and Hettinger Airports to
receive $5.7 million in federal funding

U.S. Senators John Hoeven and Heidi Heitkamp announced this past week that the Department of Transportation (DOT) has awarded nearly $5.7 million in federal funding to make needed improvements at the Mohall and Hettinger Municipal Airports.

“As North Dakota’s economy continues to grow, so have our state’s transportation needs,” Hoeven said. “These DOT grants will support important airport improvements to ensure pilot and passenger safety.”

The City of Mohall will receive $1.5 million to construct an apron and extend the taxiway for Mohall Municipal Airport.

Adams County Airport Authority will be awarded $4.2 million to rehabilitate the runway at Hettinger Municipal Airport.

“Investing in North Dakota’s airports is a critical part of keeping our families and neighbors safe, and securing the longevity of our transportation infrastructure,” said Heitkamp. “Local airports across the state have felt the strain on a growing population and increased demand. These funds will help the airports in Hettinger and Mohall make needed improvements and continue providing quality and safe service.”

Earlier this month, more than $9 million in DOT funds was given to help build and repair airports in Tioga, Garrison, and Dickinson.

American flag again flying at the Sports Complex in Mohall

Ask and you shall receive, thanks to volunteers!

Wayne Brackenbury, new athletic director at the MLS School District, asked at the Maverick Booster Club meeting on Thursday, August 20th, if the Booster Club would be willing to donate money to have a flag pole and a flag installed at the Sports Complex. The Booster Club agreed if it was cleared with Superintendent Peltier, which it was.

On Friday morning, August 21st, a contact was made to Ken Shobe, Mohall City Coordinator and one of the volunteers instrumental in the new sports complex in Mohall, about access to getting a pole to put up out there. Shobe informed them that a pole already existed out there, as it had been installed after the Yellowjacket Sports Complex had been completed. The pole, which is located in the southwest corner of the complex, needed a fresh coat of paint and a new pulley system to hang the flag. So Ken Shobe made a call to Bob Marmon that morning and he agreed to bring his bucket out and spray paint the pole and hang the new pulley for the flag. Shobe then contacted Tom Gehringer about getting a flag to hang on the pole. By 2:30 p.m. that afternoon, the flag pole was painted, the new pulley installed, and the flag was being hung. Bob Marmon, above right, owner of Marmon Enterprises, and his employee, Justin Wick, left, are pictured hanging the flag. They graciously donated their time and labor to get the pole ready and hang the flag. The flag was donated by Tom Gehringer and the Geo. T. Taylor American Legion Post #52 of Mohall. The Booster Club paid for the paint and the pulley.

So thanks to Ken Shobe, Marmon Enterprises, Tom Gehringer and the Mohall American Legion, the flag was up and ready to be used for the first home football game of the season that evening, August 21st against the Towner/Granville/Upham Titans.

This year marks the 25th anniversary of the Yellowjacket Sports Complex. The first football game was played on the complex on Friday night, August 31st, 1990 against the Rolette Comets.

Improvements made at MLS Schools for 2015-2016 school year

This summer Fargo Glass and Paint replaced all of the exterior aluminum panels that are above the existing classroom and office windows at the MLS-Mohall School. The new darker panels, which will be more energy efficient, cost the district $52,996.00. The aluminum panels had to be replaced as many of the panels were allowing moisture into the windows.

Other improvements included partitioning/dry walling the English/Business classroom, and installing some carpet. The Title I classroom was painted, along with the English and Music classrooms; and the gym floors, tiled classrooms, and hallways were all waxed.
