ROCORI High School
There will be a Minnesotan on the field during Sunday’s Super Bowl. Denver Broncos wide receiver Eric Decker grew up in Cold Spring, and played for the Gophers. On Thursday afternoon, hundreds of people filled the Rocori High School gymnasium for “Eric Decker Day.” Those on hand included preschoolers, teenagers, grownups and family – including Eric’s grandma, Bernice Decker.
Students and staff at Rocori High School are marking the tenth anniversary of a fatal school shooting in a low-key manner at the request of families involved.

The Rocori school board has not decided whether to install metal detectors after two weapons incidents in two weeks at the middle school.
