By Digger Phelps With the summer turning the corner past the 4th of July, both the men and women have concluded league play from the first half. The late start to the golfing season and the weather have made it difficult to get all of the matches played, and hopefully, the second half of the season will be a bit more cooperative. Winners of the first half were as follows: Ladies - 2 Lady League - Gall Smith and Shirley Wolf (won in a playoff with Lynn Elzenga and Linda Carter.) 5 Lady League is still incomplete. Men's Early League 1 - Dave and Ron Jorgenson Men's Early League 2 - Mark Meyer and John Keithahn Men's Intermediate - Winners - Mike Timm and Dave Skarupa Runners up - tie between Kent Erickson and Russ Fay with Dwayne and Mike Eichner. Playoff will be held. (In intermediate league, both the winner and one runner-up are eligible for year-end play- offs.) The next major event for the club will be the Member Guest Tournament this week- end. If you haven't signed up, you may still contact the club- house for a time on Saturday. Sunday tee times will be deter- mined by your flight and will be assigned at the completion of play on Saturday. This tournament is run on the quota system, which means that your total score is of no real con- sequence, just the number of points which you can accumu- late over your assigned quota. Both you and your guest must have an 18-hole handicap in order to establish your quota. This format is different from stroke or match play, and has been quite well received by members in the past. The Ladies' annual cancer tournament is scheduled for Tuesday August 6, and early arrangements are well under- way. This has been a popular means of showing support and raising funds for some very important programs. It has also proven very popular for participants from all around the area. Those in charge have worked diligently to secure some very supportive sponsors along with some wonderful door prizes for all participants. The Ladies' Association has recently focused on more local giving by donating to area hospice programs through this event. If you haven't reserved a time for your four-lady team, you may contact the clubhouse. Recently, we have been for- tunate at Rolling Hills to have hosted quite a number of indi- viduals from a variety of out- of-town locations who have come to play as part of a vaca- tion or just a weekend "get- away". In nearly all of these cases, individuals have been very complimentary regarding our course, our facility, and their experience here. It is gratifying to know that our staff and employees, as well as members who are present must be doing something right to keep attracting these individu- als to the area and to the golf course facility.

Westbrook-Walnut Grove YES! Team wins awards Southwest Initiative Foundation (SWlF) and Prairie Woods Environmental Learning Center (PWELC) are excited to announce that the Westbrook-Walnut Grove YES! Team was awarded the Grand Prize and Community Involvement YES! Awards for their 2012-2013 project accomplishments. For their efforts, the team received $1250 in award funding to be used in future YES! team work. This award was spon- sored by SWIF and AgStar Financial Services. The Westbrook-Walnut Grove YES! team was part of the Earth YES! class and was led by WWG High School teacher Pat Merrick. 22 stu- dents participated in this class over the course of the year. These students partnered with Southwest Minnesota Housing Partnership to edu- cate over 950 community members about water and energy savings at home shows in Luveme, Windom, and Pipestone. They also installed a wind turbine at the high school that will save the school an estimated $530 a year in energy costs. In addition, they worked with the Sisters of Charity of the Blessed Virgin Mary to recy- cle old, donated t-shirts into cloth diapers for children in need. The team was also selected to share about their projects and accomplishments with other schools and com- munity leaders at the Clean Energy Resource Teams (CERTs) Conference in St. Cloud. YES! is a unique experien- tial learning program where youth in grades 7 through 12 engage in hands-on learn- ing and undertake meaningful projects that not only lead to dramatic demonstrations of renewable energy technology and conservation practices, but also build skills that will directly impact their future in education and our work- force like creativity, innova- tion, problem-solving, com- munication, teamwork, and project management. These projects also expose students to how science, technology, engineering, and math are applied in real life. During the 2012-2013 school year, 32 YES! teams participated around central, southwest and southern Minnesota. This is Westbrook-Walnut Grove's fourth year participating in the YES! Program. The Westbrook-Walnut Grove YES! team is not the only one winning awards: the YES! program was recent- ly awarded the Minnesota Environmental Initiative (MEI) 2013 Environmental Education award. The MEI awards annually honor inno- vative projects that have achieved extraordinary envi- ronmental results by harness- ing the power of partnership. YES! empowers youth to partner with their community to create economic and envi- ronmental vitality through hands-on learning and team- based projects. The YES! program is provided through a partnership of PWELC and SWIF. Funding for the 2012- 2013 season was provided in part by the Minnesota Environment and Natural Resources Trust Fund, a con- stitutionaily-established per- manent fund for protecting and enhancing Minnesota's environment and natural resources, as recommended by the LCCMR. Additional support was provided by AgStar Financial Services and several other businesses and organizations. For more information about YES!, visit www.youthenergysummit. org.
