Lots of changes in store for Benson and KMS sports

The Minnesota State High School League recently released its new section alignments for the 2015-2016 and 2016-2017 seasons and there are quite a few changes involving Benson High School sports.  Some of the changes are minor, while others, including wrestling and boys and girls basketball are significant.
The MSHSL does the realignments every two years, based on new enrollment figures.  Benson High School will continue to play in a variety of administrative sections, including 5AA, 5A, 6A, 3A, and 3AA, while KMS teams will play in 4A, 3A, and 5A, as well as the sections where Benson and KMS are paired.
Fall sports --
•  In football, Benson stays in Section 5AA, but picks up ACGC and Osakis while losing YME and BOLD.  The KMS football team meanwhile, stays in Section 4A, but loses ACGC and Buffalo Lake-HS while picking up Upsala-Swanville Area.

Plans for assisted living facility moving forward

Construction of an assisted living facility that would include independent living quarters as well as a dementia unit has moved from an idea to pursuing making the project a reality.
Benson’s Planning Commission will be meeting Monday to start the process of rezoning the land on which the facility is to be built from residential single family housing to multiple-unit housing. That process starts with a request form the property owner then goes through the public hearing process as an ordinance is presented to change the zoning.
The proposed site is west of Minnesota Highway 29 north between the highway and the Hawleywood residential development. It is also just across the highway from the baseball fields at the Northside Recreation Area.
An advantage of the site is that the facility would be highly visible to people traveling through the community.
