There is a unique physical education class being offered at Frazee High School that integrates special education students with those in general studies. The class began shortly after Thanksgiving and is scheduled to continue for the remainder of the year. Each Thursday, special education students in grades 7-12 join the freshman gym class to work on athletic skills. The students in the freshman class were immediately welcoming to the special education classmates, which has led to some special bonds that have been made. 

The future of the Frazee liquor store will be discussed at a special city council meeting this week after just one person showed up at a special hearing in December. The liquor store has lost money in each of the past three years, including in 2016 when it lost over $40,000. It was also estimated to end the year in the red in 2017 as well. According to records, the liquor store made at least $11,500 from 2007-13.
