Excavation equipment arrived on Lots 6 and 7 in the Larry Luker Memorial Industrial Park Tuesday morning to begin preparing the site for a warehouse and distribution center which will employ 164 persons.

Windmill Realty LLC purchased the land immediately west of Titan Pro on 12th Avenue South for $920,700 from Snyder Construction Partnership LLP.  Charlson Excavating, Clear Lake, is doing the site work for the planned 360,000 square foot facility.  The building plan is expected to come before the city’s Planning and Zoning Commission at its next meeting April 15.  Construction is then estimated to take 12-18 months.


Clipping for cash

Box tops can equal big money for Clear Lake school

We all know that clipping some coupons can save you some change.  But did you know box tops are worth thousands?

Last year Clear Creek Elementary School received $5,219.60 just from box tops turned in by the community and trimmed, bundled and sent in by volunteers.

Sure, it takes a lot of box tops to make that kind of money-- 52,196 to be exact, but it’s an easy way for the school district to receive over $20,000 annually say Julie Jones and Shawn Neuman, who have been heading up the box top effort this school year.
