Jeff Reese was wearing a New Richland-Hartland Cardinal uniform the first time a certain Morristown cheerleader named Carol Allingsworth caught his eye.

He was immediately stricken.

“I thought she was pretty neat the first time I saw her,” said Reese.

He remembers talking to her for the first time after an afternoon football game at Morristown, and he remembers their first extended conversation when he ran into her — along with her then steady boyfriend — in the Waseca bowling alley lounge.

“She said I tripped her,” said Reese.

In a way, he did.

New Richland City Council


Staff Writer

A new, all-electronic document management system, discussed briefly at the April 28 meeting, was approved Monday night by the New Richland City Council. In his proposal to the council, City Clerk Wayne Billing said that due to the amount of documents handled by the city each year, switching from a paper system to one that is more efficient in the struggle to keep track of important documents and respond to information requests would be potentially immensely beneficial.

The document management system provides keyword search, document versioning, comparison and collaboration, web publishing, workflow automation and e-mail integration, among other things; software that would, in the long run, simplify the city’s knowledge base. According to Billing, switching to an electronic system would ease the burden on the city created by regulations such as the Minnesota Government Data Practices Act and HIPAA, which require the city to produce more documents and track them more methodically.
