Thompson may delay retirement from county


WILLMAR -- Kandiyohi County Administrator Wayne Thompson may consider delaying his retirement from the county's top job for up to a year.

Last year Thompson said he intended to retire sometime in 2006 from the job he's held since 1977. But on Wednesday, Thompson said he would be willing to stay on the job longer to help the county through a snarl of complicated financial contracts and unfinished mechanical improvements at the Willmar Regional Treatment Center.
