Sunday Tornado Damages Belle Plaine Area Farms A Lot Going on Downtown This Friday and Saturday This year’s Belle Plaine German Days queen candidates are, from left, Katelyn Zurn, Cassandra Caola and Kourtney Klug.

Sitting in their house Sunday evening shortly after 8, Sherry and Mike Krentz heard the windows vibrating. The sky was dark and the wind powerful. They thought about taking refuge in the basement. A few minutes later, it was over. “It got kind of weird, windows sucking in and out,” she said Monday. “It happened so fast. It was about 20 seconds from

the time it started.” The couple spent much of Monday dealing with insurance adjusters and visiting with neighbors checking in to make sure they were OK. At their farm on German Road in Blakeley Township (County Road 53) just north of Highway 19, one silo was destroyed and two others were damaged. The roof was torn off a barn. The

machine shop was “structurally damaged,” Krentz said. Debris was scattered for hundreds of yards to the north and east.

Marilyn Koepp, Ray Meierbachtol Grand Marshals of Saturday’s Parade by Dan Ruud The Marilyn Koepp and Ray Meierbachtol families have a lot in common – both their ancestral roots are in Germany and both have for decades operated farms in rural Belle Plaine. Marilyn’s and Ray’s spouses both died in the early 2000s. Before that, the two couples took trips together, including to Alaska and Hawaii. On Saturday, Marilyn, nee Stier, and Ray will have one more thing in common as they will be grand marshals of Belle Plaine’s 2012 German Days Parade.

The Koepp family’s dairy farm is located near German Road in Blakeley Township, which is where Marilyn still lives. Her son Wayne currently operates the farm. All of her other children also live close by – Sherry (Krentz), Mark, John and Kim. Marilyn has nine grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. Marilyn’s husband, Norman Koepp, died in 2000. Marilyn’s parents, the late John and Alma Stier, also farmed in the area most their lives. Marilyn’s great-grandfather, August Stier, made the voyage to America from Ger-

many in about 1875 when he was a young boy. He too became a farmer. Marilyn, who graduated from Belle Plaine High School in 1957, said she never learned to speak German, but her parents could. “When the folks didn’t want us to know something, they talked

Forty Years of Service Honored

Emil Ashauer Enjoyed Giving Back to B.P.

Emil Ashauer enjoyed being a member of the Belle Plaine Rotary. As one of the early members of the Belle Plaine Rotary, he almost never missed a meeting. Belle Plaine Rotarians recently thanked Ashauer for his service over four decades, from 1972 to 2012. The Belle Plaine Rotarians didn’t formally organize until 1970. Ashauer didn’t join the Belle Plaine until after he retired. “I wanted some way to serve the community,â€? he said. After returning from military service, businesspersons and homeowners knew him well for his plumbing and heating service, Emil’s Plummery. Regardless of the project Rotarians were running to beneďŹ t the community -- from supporting foreign-exchange students, selling rafes for a game-used football and a car kit to raising money for Christmas programs and research for a polio vaccines -- Ashauer was always willing to give his time. “He was always one of the ďŹ rst to volunteer,â€? said Ed Bowler, one of the early Rotarians. Belle Plaine Rotarian Donna Zeitler said the commitment the early Rotarians laid the groundwork for the project and service current members offer. Being a member of the Belle Plaine Rotary was important to Ashauer. Serving a community that supported his business just seemed right. Even though he’s not able to help with the projects like he once did, at 99 years, he’s proud of the work the club he’s supported is still active. Ashauer and his wife Viola weren’t just supportive of Rotary here in Belle Plaine. Each winter, they would drive to McAllen, Tex. for the winter. The winter of 2011 is the ďŹ rst the couple didn’t make the drive. And if you call him a snowbird, Ashauer will politely correct you. He was “a Texas Rotarian,â€? he said. Ashauer’s resume is ďŹ lled with community service well beyond his work as a Rotarian. He served on the commercial club, the planning commission, the community development corporation, the borough council (a forerunner to the city council), the swimming pool building committee and his church council. He served on the Bar-B-Que Days Committee for 14 years and was the parade’s grand marshal in 1989. He and his ďŹ rst

wife, the late-Faith Ashauer, are for Belle Plaine students attendthe namesakes of a scholarship ing vocational school.

Emil Ashauer served in the Belle Plaine Rotary for 40 years, from 1972 through 2012.

Three File for SWCD Seats Three candidates, including one incumbent, have filed for the Scott Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) Board of Supervisor positions up for election this fall in districts I, II and III in Scott County. In District I, Doug Schoenecker of New Prague has filed for the seat currently held by Ewald Gruetzmacher of Belle Plaine. Gruetzmacher decided not to run again after serving as board member and chairman since 1997. District I includes residents Helena, Belle Plaine and Blakeley Townships. Incumbent Linda Brown of Elko New Market has re-filed for the District II supervisor post, serving New Market and Cedar Lake townships. Brown is currently wrapping up her first term. In District III, Robert Casey of Prior Lake has filed and would serve residents in Credit River and Spring Lake Townships. Paul Krueger of Prior Lake chose not to run, having served as a board member and vice chairman for three terms. Krueger also served part of his predecessor Wally Wormer’s last term when Wormer sold his farm and moved to Jordan

in 1995. The Scott SWCD candidate race will be on the ballot for the Nov. 6 general election. Candidates are elected countywide but must reside in one of the nomination districts up for election. Supervisors serve four-year terms. SWCDs are special-purpose units of government that manage and direct conservation programs such as the state Cost-Share Program and the other partnerships that fund and support conservation improvements in the county. An elected Board of Supervisors governs each of Minnesota’s 90 SWCDs. The Scott SWCD Board of Supervisors meets monthly to discuss the business of the SWCD, including state grant allocations to landowners, district conservation priorities, coordination with other local units of government and state agencies and legislative priorities. They do not receive a salary, although they do receive compensation for attending meetings and are reimbursed for expenses. For more information on the Scott SWCD in Jordan, call 952-492-5425 or visit www. scottswcd.org.

Grand Marshals (continued from page 1) German,� Marilyn said. Although she spent most of her years at home helping tend to the farm, Marilyn worked for The Lutheran Home as a cook for about 10 years. Ray graduated from BPHS in 1949. Soon thereafter, he mixed farming with the trucking business. “The day after Christmas (that year) I took my first load of hogs to South St. Paul,� Ray recalled. Among Ray’s customers were Marilyn and Norman, who he often hauled cattle for. Today, Ray’s sons operate the business (Meierbachtol Trucking). Ray and his wife, Yvonne, nee Schultz, who died about 10 years ago, raised four children – John, Irene (Grochow), Donald and Dale. All the sons live within a mile or so from Ray. Irene lives in New Auburn in Sibley County. Ray has a dozen grandchildren and several great-grandchildren. Marilyn’s and Ray’s families have remained close for decades. In fact, it was Marilyn’s son Mark who asked Ray if he would join Marilyn as a grand marshal for this year’s German Days Parade. There have been many Belle

Plaine German Days grand marshals before Ray, but very few whose eventual ties to Belle Plaine began the way Ray tells it. “My great-grandfather shot a deer on a game preserve (in Germany) and that was a big crime there. He went to prison and escaped by covering himself up in a wagon load of hay, and somehow was able to get on a ship to New York,� Ray said. Son Dale said that is indeed the story he’s heard of how the Meierbachtols first came to be in the Belle Plaine area, and he’s “pretty sure� it’s true. Not one to shy away from a story, Ray also described how his parents, the late Martin and Lucy Meierbachtol, sometimes saw things a little differently. “Mom was the fussy one. We were not supposed to do any partying. My dad was just the opposite. He’d take us out and tell us not to tell mom we stopped at Porky’s (now Sparetime Tavern) for a beer. When my kids were with, he’d tell them not to tell grandma. But it was all okay. We had a lot of fun,� Ray said laughing. Perhaps more stories will be told this weekend.

by John Mueller Anyone who knows Joe Voss well easily imagines him spending his free time working on race cars for race nights at Arlington Raceway. But these days, Voss is committing his energy to a more important effort, recovering from cancer. He’s been unable to regularly go to the track this season. The surgery earlier this spring and chemotherapy treatments he regularly endures have sapped his strength. Voss misses the friends, the competition, the smell and the roar of the crowd as racers fight for the checkered flag. “Being at the track is Joe’s life,� said Holli Reimers, a Belle Plaine resident and one of the people organizing the benefit. She and her family have known the Voss family for years. In 2009, the 47-year-old Voss was diagnosed with colon cancer. Earlier this year, doctors discovered the cancer had spread to his liver and lymph nodes. A benefit to help his family deal with medical costs until he’s able to get back to work is Saturday (June 16 beginning at 11 a.m.) at the racetrack on the Sibley County Fairgrounds in Arlington. The benefit includes a freewill offering pork sandwich dinner, two silent auctions, kids games, live music, a bake sale, stock car races, an after-race party and more live music by the JNH Band (10 p.m. to 1 a.m.). The first of the two silent auctions include items donated by area businesses. The second silent auction primarily includes racing items. Minnesota Vikings’ players Percy Harvin and Christian Ponder have also donated autographed items for the silent auction. A second benefit is planned for July 10. Pizza Plus of Belle Plaine is donating a percentage of its sales toward the Voss family when customers mention the family when placing an order.

Belle Plaine’s Joe Voss, with the support of his wife, Kathy, is battling colon cancer. He’ll be the guest-of-honor at a benefit Saturday at Arlington Raceway on the Sibley County Fairgrounds. The benefit begins at 11 a.m. and includes a meal and silent auctions.

Where Else?

Though Kathy and Joe Voss are overwhelmed by the effort behind the benefit, Reimers can’t imagine not organizing it and holding the benefit at Arlington Raceway. Having grown up around cars, primarily at the auto salvage yards his father operated in Belle Plaine and Green Isle, Joe Voss is a fixture in the local racing community. He’s been involved in racing at the track for about 30 years. Voss has helped many racing enthusiasts with his time, parts, even a car to get their start in racing. Voss is renowned for a quick trip from the pits to his shop in Arlington to pick up parts a racer might need. It doesn’t matter, Reimers said, that the racer he’s helping might be a competitor. The Voss family has also helped Reimers’ sons – JJ and Joe get into racing – by giving them their first go-karts. “They (Voss family members) help everybody out around the track,� she said. “If you need

something and Joe can help you out, he’ll gladly do it. He’d give you the shirt off his back if you needed it.� Joe and Kathy’s four children are involved in racing as well. He’s proud of their success but sad he’s been unable to attend the races to cheer them on and help them out. “You can tell he really misses it,� Reimers said. Voss is three years into his fight with cancer. At first, he dismissed feeling poorly. But the disease started spreading and intensifying. When the bleeding started, he couldn’t dismiss the symptoms any longer. His first surgery was in the spring of 2009. Despite the powerful medications and chemotherapy, it spread to his liver. Earlier this spring, surgeons removed about 70 percent of his liver during an operation aimed at slowing the cancer’s progress. Additional chemotherapy treatments are also scheduled. The chemotherapy and residual effects of the powerful chemicals forced Kathy Voss to close down the home daycare opera-

tion she has run for 13 years. Joe’s employer, Jordan Transformer, has allowed him to work as his strength between treatments permits. Voss is grateful for the company’s flexibility. He expects to be back to work in mid-July. Until then, he relaxes around the house, spends time with family and goes for walks with his dog. The walks keep his internal organs working. Doctors have told the family if surgeons were successful in removing as much or all of the cancer as possible, they believe his quality of life will be good for 10 years, hopefully more. He looks forward to the benefit and seeing many friends and supporters Saturday. “They’re good people,� he said. Additional information on the benefit and Voss’s condition are available at joevossbenefit@ gmail.com, on Facebook (Joe Voss Benefit) and www.caringbridge.com/visit/joevoss. Monetary donations can be dropped off at CornerStone Bank in Belle Plaine.

Thirty Years Ago This Week

the earliest of the Keystone settlers, died in Minneapolis and was buried in Eden Prairie. The marriage of Miss Veronica Kerkow, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Kerkow of Belle Plaine, to Rev. T.R. Kock of Plum City, took place at Trinity Lutheran Church, the groom’s father being the officiating clergyman. In the primary election in Scott County, veteran campaigner, Sheriff Chas. M. Kopp, was eliminated. In Carver County, an old officeholder, School Supt. Williams, was also eliminated. Congressman C.R. Davis was renominated by a margin of 853 in the district. Fifty years previous, the Wm. Kuhlmans moved from Blakeley to Lester Prairie. On that anniversary there was a family reunion at the Lester Prairie home with all his 11 children present and 43 of his 51 grandchildren. Mrs. Kuhlman had died in 1905.

120 Years Ago (1892)

Dahlquists Sell Coast-to-Coast Store Jim Lange, left, took over as owner of the Coast-to-Coast Store in June of 1982, purchasing it from Doug and Lorraine Dahlquist, who sold the store after 13 years of business in Belle Plaine. “It’s exciting and scary in the same breath,� said Lorraine Dahlquist of retirement. “We’ll certainly miss the business and the people.� The sidewalk suit was settled and the city would receive only a portion of the money asked for in the original claim. The suit evolved after the downtown sidewalks, laid in 1979, ended up costing the city an additional $12,611. The suit, filed against civil engineers Reike-CarrollMuller (RCM), alleged that the overrun should not have occurred because the construction costs incurred after the original bid was let. Instead, a change order was received by the engineers and the project continued. The city gave up its claim to attorney fees, putting the final settlement at $4,100 of the original $15,000 claim. Belle Plaine’s annual sidewalk cookout would be held that coming Friday evening. Meanwhile, a sidewalk sale would take place the night before (Thursday) from 6 to 9:30. Dr. Steven Jabs, D.D.S., announced his graduation from the University of Minnesota College of Dentistry. He was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Jabs of Jordan and a 1974 graduate of Jordan High School. Dr. Jabs would associate as a fulltime general dentist with Dr. Robert Miller in Belle Plaine starting that coming July. An old-fashioned circus parade came to Chicago’s Michigan Avenue that Memorial Day weekend and for a second year in a row, the John Carlson family of Belle Plaine and their six Belgian horses were participants. The annual event was sponsored by the city of Chicago. The parade included 80 oldtime circus units, most of which were brought in from the World Circus Museum in Baraboo, Wis. Larry Carlson drove a gold leaf, hand-carved wagon that weighed 7,000 pounds and originally belonged to Ringling Brothers. Belle Plaine High School’s James O’Brien, a senior outfielder, was named to the allconference baseball team. Darrel Schultz got honorable mention. The Tigers’ Polly Burns, a senior first baseman, and Tammy Stimpson, a senior pitcher, were named to the all-conference softball team. Ann Blaschko received honorable mention. BPHS’s representatives on the 1981-82 all-conference academic team were JoAnn Fogarty, Robin Karnitz, Mark Sellnow and Brian Fogarty. The Belle Plaine town baseball team posted its sixth win of the season with a 6-5 victory in Shakopee. The Tigers also lost that week to Jordan 5-1. Starting pitcher Terry Knop was credited with the win against Shakopee. Tom Miller got the

save.

60 Years Ago (1952)

After a long illness, death came to Frank Weiss. A native of Belle Plaine, he was a successful businessman and moved to Le Center. His remains were brought to Le Center from the Rochester hospital for funeral services. Mary Agnes Devine, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. William Devine, and Dale Edberg, son of Mr. and Mrs. Eldridge Edberg, were married, Rev. Father Finley officiating. Following a wedding trip to the Black Hills, the couple resided on the farm home of the groom’s parents.

Both planned to remain and graduate from the College of Dentistry. Edward Gentz, who with Walter Gentz had filled many painting jobs in and around Belle Plaine, lost his life in a fall of 42 feet from the steeple of St. Joseph’s Church in Jordan. The program for the 4th of July was getting into shape with feature events being free afternoon ball games, concerts, doll buggy parades and races of all kind. A $500 fireworks display was planned to highlight the evening. Two men were convicted of criminal charges upon their pleas in Scott County District Court for the burglary of Hahn’s store in Belle Plaine. In a double-ring ceremony performed at Trinity Lutheran Church, Miss Liela Belter, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Theo.

Growing Through Grief Meeting June 14

Dear Editor: There was a generous man named Tom who set up his telescope and sun-viewing equipment outside of Coburn’s on Tuesday evening. He provided passers-by with an opportunity to view the Transit of Venus. The viewing was very cool and was a great opportunity for me and my family to witness an event that won’t happen again for 100 years.   Thanks again, Tom! Tony Case, Belle Plaine

SWCD Board Meets Monthly The Scott Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) Board meets the third Wednesday of each month from 8-10 a.m. at the Scott Conservation and Extension Building on the Scott County Fairgrounds in St. Lawrence Township.

adjustments, clutch repair and replacement, tires, brakes and tune-ups for domestic and import vehicles of many types. The Belle Plaine City Council on May 21 approved Allen Jensen’s request for a conditional use permit to allow an auto and transmission repair business at the building, which he has now sold to Harm Alken, owner of Prior Lake Transmission and Auto Repair. Alken also operates a similar business in Minneapolis. Assisting Alken at Belle Plaine Transmission and Auto Service are head mechanic Steve Cheever and bookkeeper Janelle Alken, Alken’s wife. Alken last year built a 1955 Chevrolet “from the ground up in 57 days� for his and Janelle’s wedding last August (see photo in ad on page 18). Belle Plaine Transmission and Auto Service can be reached at 952-873-5556.

No Need for a City Primary It was a slow finish to the twoweek filing period for Belle Plaine city offices as no additional candidates filed the final seven days. That left only those who had filed the first week. The only two candidates for mayor are incumbent Tim Lies and Council Member Michael Pingalore. The three candidates for two city council seats are incum-

bent Cary Coop, incumbent Gary Trost and Kurt Laabs. If Pingalore fails in his bid to win the mayoral seat, he will be able to keep his seat on the council. Because no more than two candidates filed for the mayor’s seat and/or more than four candidates for the two council seats, a municipal primary election will not be necessary in Belle Plaine on Aug. 14.

Downtown

Town & Vicinity Cole and Sydney Brown are now proud big siblings to their newborn brother Levi.  Celebrations took place this weekend in the 208th/ Hillcrest Lane neighborhood in Faxon Township. Dan Beal was congratulated by family and friends on Friday evening and Courtney Soller on Saturday. Judy Hennen was able to make a quick stop to say hello to Courtney and even shared a few pickle roll ups before heading to her nephew’s open house in Norwood.  Robert and Carrie Elder and family of Rochester, Peggy Harsh and Joe Jendro of Bloomington, and Garm and Loretta Elder of Farmington called on Carmen Meyer to celebrate her birthday on Monday June 4. Great conversation and fellowship were enjoyed by all. Carmen continued the birthday celebration with dinner with her family. Over Memorial Day weekend, the Jr High performance of The Jungle Book was a huge success. Jonah Meyer, a cast member, hosted the cast

party at his home on Sunday afternoon. A great time was had by all. On Saturday evening, Mike and Cindy Legg of Shakopee, along with Marty and Lisa Fahey of Belle Plaine, enjoyed a sunset ride on the Mississippi River near Redwing. Jeff and Angela Townsend, owners of the boat and wonderful hosts, motored through a lock and dam, a new experience for the guests. Upon returning to their slip at Treasure Island Marina, they enjoyed refreshments, great conversation, and dancing.  Chris and Bruce Skluzacek and family entertained the Anderson clan at their home in Montgomery over the weekend. Taking advantage of the tropical weather, swimming was enjoyed by all.  On Saturday, with friends and family by their side, Melissa Tripp and Wesley Mellgren tied the knot! Greatly missed from the festivities was the youngest son of Lyle and Deb Noah. A most wonderful time was had by all!

St. Thomas Mass will be offered by Father George Grafsky at St. Anne's Catholic Church in Le Sueur on Saturday, June 16 at 5:15 p.m. and Sunday, June 17 at 8 and 10:30 a.m. Mass is in honor for Father's Day for all father's living and those who have passed away. A Memorial Day program was held at Bender's Park in Henderson on Monday, June 17 at 11 a.m. for the many soldiers being remembered for serving our country's loyalty and peace. The Legion Color Guard, along with the Le Sueur-Henderson marching band lead the program down Main Street to the New Country School where Lisa Klenk, a veteran service officer, was the guest speaker. Many families joined the group in their love, respect and loyalty for what our soldiers have done and still do for us. Edward and Eileen Burns of New Prague attended the visitation and funeral of Herbert Wolff at the St. Peter and Paul's Catholic Church in Mankato on Friday. The deceased was a close relative of the Charles Wolff family from Madison Lake who also attended. Michael O'Brien of Mankato

accompanied by his brother, Ron O'Brien of Hastings, attended the Minnesota Air Show on Saturday at Mankato which started at 11 a.m. The highlight of the show was the "Navy Blue Angels" which everyone enjoyed their planes and flying stunts. It was wonderful! A very large crowd was in attendance. Annette Kinkeade and Edw. Rasmuson, Arlene and Pat Finn, Mary Devine and Matthew, Michael and Sue O'Brien, were among family members who joined Ron O'Brien of Hastings at the home of Mary Grace O'Brien on Saturday for dinner and game of cards. Edward and Eileen Burns of New Prague and Mary Grace O'Brien visited their sister, Madelyn Wolff, at her home in Madison Lake on Thursday. They also visited Charles Wolff, Jr. at his home in Janesville. Charles had returned home from the hospital recently and was getting along much better. The weather this past Sunday with mostly high winds, lightning, thunder and heavy rains left us with no electricity, down trees, destroyed some buildings and many branches and leaves to pick up. We were thankful it wasn't any worse.

Farmers Market Corner It was another great day at the Belle Plaine Farmers Market last Wednesday as the weather was beautiful again. The vendors will be at the market rain or shine but it does make for a better time when the sun is shining and the violin carries a happy tune throughout the park. Thanks Lucy. There is still time to plant tomatoes and peppers. Roy has some wonderful starter plants available and rumors abound that the berries are close to being ready. Radishes, onions and lettuce have been at the market and will continue this week. Watering gardens is sometimes necessary as the rains don’t always cooperate. Consider collecting rain water in barrels as it contains nitrates that add to the soil. When watering, try not to water from above because it damages the leaves and promotes fungal diseases. Water the base of the plants directly or with a soaker hose. As the squash and cucumbers start to vine out, watch for bugs. They need to be caught early and destroyed so there is no damage to your plants. Eggs are found under the leaves and can be scraped off. Adult bugs will hide under a well-placed board during the night and can be collected and killed in the early morning. The Belle Plaine Farmers Market is held Wednesdays at Court Square Park May through October from 3:30 to 6:30 p.m. Vendors wishing to sell homemade and/or homegrown products are welcome. If you have a talent you would like to share,

we invite you to throw down a hat and perform at the market. For more information, contact Lisa at 952-873-5665 or Diane at 952-873-2467.

Damages (continued from page 1) tween 60 and 75 mph, through a swath with a median width of 50 yards. The weather service said it initially touched down in Le Sueur County and moved northeast for a half mile before entering Scott County. It traveled about 1½ miles before breaking up four miles south-southeast of Belle Plaine. The storm was accompanied by just under 2 inches of rainfall, slightly less north of the Minnesota River. At Krentz’s farm, silos and out buildings bore the brunt of the damage at the farm. The couple’s house escaped unscathed. The equipment in the outbuildings was also undamaged for the most part. “We’re OK. Nobody was hurt,” she said. To the north and east, at the Jeurissen farm on County Road 5 (Hickory Boulevard) in Belle Plaine Township, out buildings took the brunt of the damage from Sunday night’s tornado. After two days of hot, windy weather, Jim Jeurissen was expecting a storm. “We were just watching out the back and saw a big branch fly by,” Jeurissen said. By the time the storm passed, Jeurissen’s 40-by-150-pole barn was destroyed. It was blown off its footings. A door on one side was blown through it. A daylight inspection Monday said the trusses in the building were “compromised.” Despite the heavy rain that was falling, Jeurissen decided to remove the tractors and combine from the building. “We just didn’t trust the building,” he said. As the storm moved to the northeast across Belle Plaine Township, it hit the Stender farm and Oakdale Ridge Hunting Preserve on Union Hill Boulevard. Whipping around a silo, it blew out the north end of the 125-year-old barn, said Susie Stender. “It came with such driving force,” she said. The wind also damaged trusses and support beams inside the barn. The Stenders plan to repair the damage. “We don’t want to throw the barn away,” she said. With the west end of the barn open, the driving rain killed approximately 300 five-week old pheasant chicks, Stender said. The tornado apparently only damaged outbuildings in the area. It is the first tornado in recent memory to hit the Belle Plaine area.

The first full week of summer is in full swing and our school buildings are still busy. Students are back for morning summer school sessions, incoming freshman are attending driver’s training classes, the weight room and gym are open for those who have purchased a summer pass and our custodial crew is already hard at work beginning the summer cleaning. On Wednesday and Thursday, administrators and teacher leaders will be participating in a data retreat. There is a lot happening in our schools over the summer! Just a reminder to all that the Belle Plaine Schools will be implementing summer office hours of 7 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. on Monday through Thursday and 7 a.m. until 11 a.m. on Fridays. These summer hours will remain in place until the week of August 13. Families who are looking to enroll for the coming school year or need to get information about a particular program should come to the District Office located at 130 S. Willow Street. The other building offices will have very limited hours during most of the summer. Congratulations to the girls track team for scoring 22.5 points and placing 10th in the State Track Meet this past weekend. Clair Stier tied for 4th place in the high jump with a jump of 5’3�. The 4 x 200 M Relay team of Amara Meyer, Jenna Gatz, Jamie Read and Celeste Borchardt placed 5th and the 4 x 100 M Relay team of Shannon Egan, Jessica Weldon, Jamie Read and Celeste Borchardt placed 6th. Jenna Gatz placed 7th in the 400 M Dash and Janessa Meuleners placed 7th in the 1600 M Run and 8th in the 3200 M Run. Great job girls and coaches! While I was reviewing some test data on individual students and examining the test scores in reading math over the course of their careers, it was quite clear that most students had a decline in test scores between their spring test and the fall test as they began the next school year. This slow down of academic growth, sometimes referred to as the summer slide, indicates that students who are not engaged in some kind of learning activity over the summer months typically take a step backwards in their academic performance or at best stay even when they return to school for the following school year. I encourage all parents to have their children read over the summer and even do a few math problems to keep some of their academic skills sharp. Academic prowess is the same as athletic prowess in that in order to maintain a certain level of physical performance, one must continue to exercise and work on the skills necessary to be successful. Academic success requires the same level of exercise and work on skills in order to maintain the success level one is at or to improve one’s success. The Belle Plaine Public Library is a great resource for summer reading materials. Kids of all ages can enjoy exciting events and fun reading incentives this summer with “Bookawocky: A Celebration of Summer Reading� at all seven of the Scott County Library System branches, including the Belle Plaine site, starting Monday, June 11 and running until Saturday, August 11. There are specific programs available for pre-school children, school-age children and teens. Check out our great local library and keep your brain sharp throughout the summer months! As always, if you have any questions about school matters, please feel free to call me at 873-2400. Go Tigers!

BELLE PLAINE HERALD, BELLE PLAINE, MINNESOTA

Drive to Fix Belle Plaine Trail Hits Potential Snag

Councilor Gary Trost, who supported paving only the city portion of the roadway if an agreement could not be reached, backs the proposal to annex the right-of-way. But he wants the township to contractually agree to help pay for sealcoating the road in two years as part of an agreement the city take over the road right-of-way. “Eventually, that road is going to be ours anyway,” Trost said. Mayor Tim Lies was less supportive of the unexpected township position on annexation. “I’m not going to call it a deal-breaker, but it’s a concern,” Lies said. “I don’t think we’re in the business of taking on more road.” From Ashford Way to Highway 169, Belle Plaine Trail is 4,375 feet long. About 63 percent of that length – 2,772

Administrator David Murphy previously said last week he’d recommend the city only repair the portion of Belle Plaine Trail within the city limits. The city may not be inclined to annex the road right-of-way because it gains no benefit, only expense, Murphy said. He said last week he’d recommend the city council decline the proposal to annex the road right-of-way. The town board contends the majority of people using Belle Plaine Trail are city residents using it as a shortcut to downtown Belle Plaine or Oak Crest Elementary School via Highway 169. Murphy said there have been no formal studies affirming the township’s position.

by John Mueller The proposal to return Belle Plaine Trail to a easily drivable roadway may have hit a pothole last week when the town board add two provisions not part of the agreement it negotiated the city council. At their June 5 meeting, Belle Plaine Township supervisors capped the funding the township will pay toward the road improvement. They also want the city to annex the road rightof-way. The council is expected to address the issue Monday night (June 18). The town board it and the city council negotiated May 24 that would have the city paying 57.7 percent of the cost of repairing the road and the township paying the remaining 42.3 percent. But the township capped its share of the construction cost at $150,000 at its June 5 meeting. Anything over that amount would be 100 percent city cost. The city estimates it will cost about $135,000 to mill off the old bituminous surface from Belle Plaine Trail between Ashford Way within the Chatfield on the Green development west of County Road 3 and Highway 169 -- a span of 4,375 feet. The potential fly in the ointment is the town board’s desire the city annex the road rightof-way within the township, a move that would make the city responsible for road maintenance and snow removal. The mill-and-overlay project is expected to last for 20 years. If the city and township can’t agree on how to proceed with the roadway and its future, City

Carver County Board Eyeing Land Issues in San Francisco Twp. A pair of land-use issues in San Francisco Township and one county-wide is on the Carver County Board’s docket Tuesday, June 19. The board will hold a public hearing at approximately 7 p.m. on Gerald Hartman’s application for a conditional-use permit (CUP) to allow him through a 26-acre conservation easement to develop seven lots on 75 acres at 6755 County Road 50 instead of one lot in an area zoned one lot per 40 acres. The easement will protect the bluff, shore land and flood plain areas on the land along County Road 50. The easement will allow the protection of “a nice,

pristine area for the future,” said Steve Just, Carver County’s director of Land Management. County commissioners will also hold a public hearing on an amendment to existing county ordinances allowing landowners to bury concrete and rebar from the demolition of an existing building on the property. The amendment is possible after a change in state law, Just said. The burial would only be allowed in certain undeveloped areas. It would be prohibited in cities and transition areas between cities and undeveloped areas. If the proposed amendment is OK’d, landowners burying concrete and rebar from the demo-

lition of a building will have to pay a $100 application fee, restore the demolition and burial areas and record the burial with the county recorder. The county board will also conduct a public hearing to consider Peter Ivy’s application for a CUP. He’s seeking permission for a private accessory structure that will allow him to build a wood-burning sauna in a new building on his property on Kelly Lake Road in San Francisco Township. The CUP is required because of the size of the additional building, Just said. The sauna is for private use. Ivy is a member of the county attorney’s staff.

Belle Plaine High School senior Becky Koepp was scheduled to begin her two-day run at the Minnesota State Class 2A Girls’ Golf Tournament Tuesday after this edition of Herald went to press. Koepp is making her fourthstraight appearance in the state tourney. The event will conclude today, which will also officially bring an end to BPHS’s involvement in the 2011-12 high school sports season.

Belle Plaine Shooters Enjoy Weekend State Meet Experience Although they didn’t come home with any hardware, members of the Belle Plaine High School trap shooting team enjoyed state meet experience team leaders hope will improve their shooting next year. Members of the Belle Plaine team participated in the Minnesota Clay Target League State Tournament in Alexandria over the weekend. The BPHS team of 17 participating shooters did not finish among the top of the 50 teams and 950 participants at the tournament. But two Belle Plaine shooters were lauded for their efforts.

Erika Schneider, a senior, earned a third-place finish in the girls’ novice division. Josiah Berringer carded a perfect round in one of the four rounds of 25 shots during the competition. Berringer is the first Belle Plaine shooter to earn the perfect score. In its second year, the Belle Plaine team has 32 members. But only five are seniors, a sign of potential growth and shooters improving with experience. The seniors are Schneider, Jessy Dols, Zach Effertz, Cory Herrmann and Justin Lundborg. Joe Deutsch, a BPHS industrial tech. teacher, is pleased with

the growth of the team. Last year, 14 students made up the Belle Plaine team. This year, 32 BPHS shooters, including three girls, participated in the varsity, junior varsity and novice competitions. “We have a lot of young shooters. That’s good to see,” Deutsch said. “The program will be around a while.” The team starts its season in April with shooters based at the Caribou Gun Club in Le Sueur. Volunteer coaches, including Deutsch, and corporate sponsors help keep the program affordable for students.

Randy Carlson Named New Coach of Girls’ Varsity Basketball Team Randy Carlson was recently named the new head coach of the Belle Plaine High School girls’ varsity basketball team, replacing Jarod Werner, who resigned after last season. Werner, who replaced long-time coach Doug Anderson, coached the team for two years. Carlson, a high school math teacher, was the BPHS boys’

Carlson said his youngest son, Trent, who played basketball at Southwest Minnesota State University for several years, graduated this year.

H.S. Track and Field

Tigers Place in Six Events at State by Dan Ruud The Belle Plaine High School girls’ track and field team placed in all six events it was represented in at last Friday’s and Saturday’s Minnesota State Class 1A Meet at Hamline University in St. Paul. Those placings added up to 22.5 points, good for 10th place overall. Seventy-four schools recorded at least one point in the meet. Blake, fueled by two firstplace finishes by Clare Flanagan in the 1,600- and 3,200meter runs, was first in the team standings with 39 points. Watertown-Mayer, led by Marissa Janning’s championship in the 300 hurdles and a victory by the Royals’ 4x800 relay team, which Janning was also a member of, finished a close second with 38 points. Rounding out the top nine were Annandale (36), Blue

Earth Area (36), Byron (29.5), St. Clair (28), Esko (26), Osakis (24) and Staples-Motley (23). Clair Stier had Belle Plaine’s highest placing as she tied for fourth place in the high jump with a height of 5-3. Carlie Wagner of New Richland-Hartland-Ellendale-Geneva won the event with a leap of 5-6. The Tigers’ 4x200 relay team of Amara Meyer, Jenna Gatz, Jamie Read and Celeste Borchardt placed fifth in a time of 1:46.01. Osakis was first in 1:44.78. Belle Plaine’s 4x100 relay squad of Shannon Egan, Jessica Weldon, Read and Borchardt finished sixth in 50.60, less than one second behind firstplace Byron (49.76). Freshman Janessa Meuleners placed seventh in the 1,600 run and was eighth in the 3,200 in times of 5:23.18 and 11:32.99, respectively. Flanagan’s first-

place times in those races were 4:59.22 and 10:44.7. Gatz, an eighth-grader, placed seventh in the 400 dash with a time of 59:18. AnnMarie Healy of Providence Academy won the event in 56.73. “It was a great finish to a memorable season as all eight athletes who qualified for state placed,” said Tigers coach Rich Foust, adding that the meet also brought an end to the long high school track and field careers of two of his senior athletes – Borchardt and Stier. “Clair Stier was the highest finisher with her fourth-place in the high jump, while Celeste Borchardt also ran her last two races, anchoring our two relays to medal finishes. I believe both standout athletes will be taking their talents to the college level next season after both finished a wonderful five-year high school career for us,” Foust said.

Belle Plaine’s Clair Stier tied for fourth place in the high jump at this past weekend’s state Class 1A meet at Hamline University.

Belle Plaine Wins Two of Three Team Tigertown finished the weekend 2-1, winning the Tigertown Classic consolation championship 6-3 over the Lamberton Black Sox. The Tigers lost the opening round game Friday night to Union Hill 6-0, then bounced back on Saturday to beat Marshall 5-2 behind some late-inning heroics from manager Jeff Miller. The Blue Earth Pirates claimed the 2012 title – their third Tigertown Classic championship (2005, 2008) – by beating Freeport 6-5 in nine innings. For the rest of the scores and results, check the bracket at bptigertown.com. Next up for the Tigers is a Sunday night affair at Chanhassen, 6:00 first pitch. Last night’s scheduled home game against the Mankato Kubs was cancelled due to the visitors citing a lack of available pitching, surrounded by league games. The game will not be rescheduled, although “Little

League Night #1” may be. “Little League Night #2” will be Tuesday, June 19 against Henderson. Each little league player receives a free hot dog when they wear their jersey to the park. Union Hill 6, Tigers 0 The Tigers took on the Union Hill Bulldogs on the opening night of the Tigertown Classic Tournament. Ryan Diers took the mound for the Tigers but only lasted two innings, giving up two runs on two hits with four free passes. Shawn Larson came on to finish off the final five innings, giving up four runs (three earned), while striking out eight. Tiger hitting was once again quiet with Larson leading the way with two hits. Diers was the only other Tiger to record a hit on the night. Tigers 5, Marshall 2 Shane Hofmann took the hill for the Tigers in the loser’s bracket of the Tigertown Classic. Hofmann threw the first

six-plus innings before handing the ball off to Brad Lawson. Lawson came in and got the next batter to bunt into a double play and received the win after Jeff Miller’s three-run bomb in the top of the eighth (BP was the visiting team on the scoreboard, per a coin flip). Pat Schultz logged three hits on the night and Tim Huber contributed two in his return to the Tigers for the weekend. Tigers 6, Lamberton 3 The Tigers sent Zac Dahlke to the mound in the consolation championship game against the Lamberton Black Sox. Dahlke cruised through six innings but the Black Sox scored three in the bottom of the seventh to make the game seem a little closer than it really was. Dahlke surrendered three runs on eight hits and three walks. He struck out four. Pat Schultz led the Tigers hitting parade, logging three singles.

Turning Back the Clock Congratulations Lowell Hoffman, longtime Belle Plaine High School principal, and his wife, Jennifer, a Belle Plaine special education teacher for 30 years, shared the spotlight at an open house in honor of Lowell’s retirement June 5 at the high school. Lowell Hoffman was a district principal for 31 years.

The front of the Kingsway building on The Lutheran Home Campus looked like a scene from the early-1900s as participants of Saturday’s CottonWood Memorial in Belle Plaine offered residents free car cruises around town.

One of the members of the world famous Budweiser Clydesdales dropped in on the John and Helen Morrison farm home in Faxon Township for a visit one day last week. John and Helen, seated and surrounded by family members, were the guests of honor of the visit. Both are over 90 years old and have a long history with draft horses, having raised many through the years on their farm. Their grandson, Scott Morrison, also pictured above nearest the horse, works with the Budweiser Clydesdales as a driver and handler. His group was at Canterbury Park for some special events last week and Scott was able to bring one of the horses to the family farm for a visit. Scott and the Budweiser Clydesdales left Minnesota on Monday for a trip to Oklahoma City, where this horse and other Budweiser Clydesdales will participate in festivities surrounding the NBA ďŹ nals that started Tuesday. A video of this Clydesdale’s visit to the Morrison home can be viewed at www.belleplaineherald.com or the Herald’s Facebook page.
