Blake Westling, Eagan High School graduate, finished in second place in the national grocery bagging competition held earlier this year at the Mirage Hotel in Las Vegas. The judges scored bagging competitors on speed, bag weight distribution, technique and style/appearance. His $5,000 prize money helped with University Wisconsin at LaCrosse expenses. Blake held bagged groceries at Byerly's, Eagan's upscale grocery store and his hosting store. Good luck with your compass aimed at medical school, Blake!

Jeff Tibbetts volunteers as a firefighter at Station 2. A family man and senior software developer for Boston Scientific, he also helps others as a fitness trainer at Anytime Fitness. He told me that serving the community for over 6 years and learning CPR and other vital skills are the best parts of being a firefighter.
