Bender found guilty in second trial – plans on appealing guilty verdict

A Mitchell man who did not comply with a mask mandate at a Mitchell School Board meeting in September 2020 and refused to leave when asked to do so was found guilty of entering or refusing to leave a property after notice. 41-year old Reed Bender was ordered to pay a $400 fine and court costs of $78.50. Bender had gone through a three-day jury trial last year, which ended up in a hung jury. Davison County State’s Attorney Jim Miskimins was not seeking jail time for Bender in the second trial. His request for a second jury trial was denied, and his case was heard before Judge Kasey Sorenson.

Base bid for new Mitchell High School would not initially include main gymnasium

The Mitchell School Board received an update on the new high school at yesterday’s meeting, which was held at the MCTEA building. Architect Robin Miller of Omaha-based Schemmer initially presented plans for the new school in June. The price tag was about $20 million more than the school district had budgeted. Yesterday, Miller presented base bid plans which would come in just under the $42 million budget. However, that would mean portions of the school, including a new main gymnasium, auxiliary gymnasium, locker rooms, cheer and dance space, a tornado shelter, and other support spaces, would not be built until more funds could be secured. Students would use the gymnasium and other athletic facilities at the current high school. Mitchell Schools Superintendent Dr. Joe Graves says the hope is that the rest of the school could be completed within five years. The project will be priced over the next few months with a possible groundbreaking taking place in the spring. Miller says the new high school could be completed by the fall of 2024.

Update on new Mitchell High School on Mitchell School Board agenda for Monday

An update on the new high school is on today’s Mitchell School Board agenda. Robin Miller, who is an architect for Omaha-based Schemmer, is expected to update the board on the new building.
