Luck is on her side
Galena Primary School Principal Doug McArthur stands with his family, Kerri, Zach, Kelli and Kathy for a Christmas 2006 photo. Kerri was born with a “birthmark on her brain,” a mass of extra blood vessels. The condition was discovered in late November. She started radiation treatments earlier this week at the Mayo Clinic.

DARLINGTON, Wis.-Most people probably wouldn't consider a bout of severe headaches a blessing in life. For 17-year-old Kerri McArthur, though, crippling headaches in late November led to the discovery of a malformation of blood vessels in her brain, a condition that may otherwise have continued undetected.

The blessings for Kerri just keep coming.

When doctors at UW Hospital in Madison decided weeks later an angioplasty procedure to shrink the mass was too risky, Kerri, the daughter of Doug and Kathy McArthur, landed an appointment with experts at the world renowned Mayo Clinic. And now she's beginning the radiation process, undergoing treatment to reduce in size the 5-centimeter mass, known as an arterial venus malformation (AVM).

It seems luck is on her side.

The gazebo
GALENA-The city has a problem with fixing up the Grant Park gazebo: It's a small job and no contractors want to bother with it, particularly since the city normally requires bid bonds, performance bonds, and payment bonds on any contract over $10,000.

Galena Facilities Manager Craig Albaugh reported to the Galena City Council on Feb. 26 that he had sent out bid documents on the necessary patching and painting to eight contractors and not received any bids. He said that this has happened on several small jobs the city has sent out for bids recently. He added that the staff believes this happens because the contractors are busy and the bonds required are too cumbersome to obtain for small jobs.

Coates to retire from library
GALENA-On Maren Coates' desk are artifacts of the time she's spent here. One in particular is a librarian action figure. You press the button on the back, and the arm moves. The librarian's pointer finger lifts to her lips, making a stereotypical "shhh"-ing motion.

But Coates has hardly been a stereotypical librarian.

She's served as director of the Galena Public Library since 1985, taking the position a year after she was hired.

She retires the end of March. An open house is planned at the library in her honor, Sunday, March 25, from 2 to 4 p.m.
