Sartell man keeps alive legend, lore of trains by Dennis Dalman news@thenewsleaders.com

Ron Euteneuer of Sartell loves to think his late grandfather helped build the old red caboose Ron and other volunteers are lovingly restoring at a site along 3rd Street and 2nd Avenue in Waite Park. It’s very likely grandfather Albert Euteneuer did, in fact, have a hand in building the caboose. He worked at the Waite Park “car shops” from 1917 until 1960, constructing mainly railroad boxcars. Euteneuer was an expert at putting finishing wood touches on the cars, and grandson Ron is almost certain he would have been chosen to do the specialty-built features that characterize cabooses. The caboose in question was built in 1943 in the car shops just 50 yards or so directly north from where it now sits. Although its frame is steel, most of the boxcar is wooden because steel in the mid-1940s was critically needed for the war effort. The wood for the car, Euteneuer noted, came from Douglas fir trees from either Washington or Oregon – from some of the forests then owned by the railroad. For many decades, the old boxcar sat unused in St. Paul until in early 2011 when the Great Northern Railway Historical Society agreed to sell it for $1 to the St. Cloud Area Rail Legacy Museum (Starail), of which Euteneuer is treasurer. It cost $7,000 to move the caTrains • page 6

Bantams take third at state tourney

Sartell Bantam As have sealed up an amazing season battling for a third-place trophy at the VFW Bantam State Tournament playing against AA teams in White Bear Lake March 22-24. The team included (front row, left to right): Tommy Pinkerton, Logan Brookins, Matt Partch, Alec Adelman and Dillion Blommer; and (back row) Jared Freeman, John Schmidt, Jordan Roller, Matt Moran, Isaac Dammen, Matt Michaud, Will McCabe and Keenan Lund. They showed up ready to play hard and bring home hardware. Off-ice training at the Crossfit Fast Factory built much-needed endurance as they played short three players this weekend. Game one started with beating Rochester, 6-1, then taking a tough loss to Elk River in a shutout, 4-0 for game two. In the final game against White Bear Lake, Matt Moran scored with an assist from goalie Matt Partch for the first goal. Next Isaac Dammen took a shot from the blue line sinking it in deep for goal number two with an assist from Moran and Alec Adelman. In the final seconds of the game the offense crashed the net. Keenan Lund scored the winning goal with an assist from Moran leaving only 2.5 seconds on the clock. Hard work and pushing past fatigue was much rewarded with medals around their necks and a trophy to bring home. Three Sartell students were recently named to the fall semester dean’s list at St. John’s University, Collegeville. They are the following: Austin Barkley, son of Julie and Jim Barkley, a sophomore Hispanic studies major; Jared Baxa, son of Diana and Donald Baxa, a junior biology major; and Alex Hanson, son of Michelle and Ron Hanson, a junior individualized major. Students must earn a semester grade-point average of a minimum of 3.80. Troy Monson of St. Stephen, was recently named to the fall semester dean’s list at Bemidji (Minn.)

Sabres from front page formed great in rebounds, and they outperformed us.” Angell has been the Sabres basketball coach since 1983. Making it to the state was a big thrill, of course, for him and his players. “It was a great experience,” he said. Playing at state was “kind of scary,” said Patrick Fischer. “A big arena and all those lights,” he said. “At first I felt a bit nervous. We knew they (DeLaSalle) are really good. Still, it was disappointing to lose, and yet I wouldn’t change any of it. I’m happy with how our team played. Our goal was to get to state and we did it.” Fischer will attend Bemidji State University next fall and will be a member of its basketball team. Like Fischer, all the Sabres are happy about their experience at state. For example, on the night after the Sabres lost to DeLaSalle, Sabres’ shooting guard Tom Bearson said he went to sleep “with a happy head.” He was still exhilarated by the experience as he drifted into sleep. He replayed in his mind what he described as the “phenomenal ambiance” of the tournament: he and his teammates entering the huge Williams Arena with its bright lights and packed crowds, the

roar of Sabres fans greeting them, the intense and tough play against superb opponents, the ecstatic rush when the Sabres took an 11-4 lead near the game’s start. “It was really cool,” Bearson said. “Our goal as a team was to win at sectionals and go to state, and we ended up doing it. I’m so proud of our team and the coaching staff.” Many others are proud, too. Many people Bearson has come into contact with since the game have congratulated him and the team with “Way to go!” comments and hearty pats and handshakes. “People come up to me and congratulate me – people I don’t even know,” he said. “It’s nice to know people really did care and appreciate our team as something cool.” Bearson, who is a junior, is eager to begin practicing for next year’s basketball season. It was Bearson who was part of a play that electrified everyone March 14 at Halenbeck Hall at St. Cloud State University. That’s the night the Sabres won the Section 8-3A championship that sent them to state play. It was a very tight game all through when in the closing seconds Bearson threw the ball, which was caught by post player Tim Immelman. In the blink of an eye, with just seconds to go on the clock, Immelman slammed the ball through the hoop, causing Sabres fans to erupt in a deafening roar of joy. With that one remarkable

moment, the Sabres won the game 57-55, leaving their opponents, the Fergus Falls Otters, stunned but impressed. Immelman, too, felt a bit dazed and dazzled after the state tournament. “The fans were screaming in Williams Arena,” he said. “It was just insane.” His post-game moods range from pride and elation to disappointment and sadness. Immelman is proud of his team and the coaching staff; he is elated the Sabres made it to state; he is disappointed a bit they lost; and he is sad his four happy years with the Sabres are gone now. He keeps sadness at bay by looking forward to his years as a St. John’s University student and member of the legendary Johnnie’s football team. He will start college next fall. “My four years on the Sabres team were unforgettable,” he said. “It was my favorite part of high school. I have an almost

surreal feeling now it’s all over. I wish it was still going on. It was great and it went by so fast. It’s sad knowing I’m not going to practice anymore after school.” However, Immelman said he has memories to cherish forever. “Playing at state was one of my best accomplishments,” he said. “I was super-excited about it, and it was such an honor. I loved playing for (coach) Angell.” Immelman scored 10 points at the state tournament. Parker Hagen scored 19, Brandon Snoberger 12; Bearson 8; and Fischer 6. Immelman said he will always remember the support he and his team received from so many fans: school chums, parents, siblings, city residents and total strangers. His family members (parents Aubrey and Pam; brother Matt, 15; sister Elizabeth, 13; and Patrick, 7) were his number-one fans,

naturally. Patrick loved to wear a shirt with his big-brother-hero’s name and number on it; he would make team-spirit signs to help cheer on Tim; and he would cry when he couldn’t attend an away game. Immelman said he has little doubt Patrick, too, will someday be a Sabres team member, and – who knows? – at some happy future time just might help win a state championship. “I want to thank everybody for all the support,” Immelman said. “It’s been a great run. The whole experience is something I’ll never forget.” The members of the Sabres basketball team are Scott Ballard, Bearson, Brett Bertelson, Fischer, Nolan Frank, Nick Gjense, Hagen, Andrew Hayes, Dylan Hollenkamp, Immelman, Mick Kutz, Ben Lanners, Matt Markman, Cordell Midas, Clay Nackenthun, Sam Neeser, Snoberger and Kevin Wolfe.

Our View

Sartell Sabres shine even after state loss

There are winners; there are losers. On March 20, the Minneapolis DeLaSalle Islanders were the winners of the high-school basketball 3A state championship. The Sartell Sabres were the losers, with a score of 70-55. That’s a fact. But beyond that fact, the words “winners” and “losers” should be reexamined. Winners are those who, despite losses, take responsibility and move on. They do not whine and pout; they do not blame anyone else; they learn from loss; they demonstrate class and dignity even in a disappointing defeat and through the everyday ongoing thick-and-thin. In that sense, the Sartell Sabres basketball team players are indeed “winners,” even after their state-tournament loss. For one thing, the Sabres’ goal all season was to make it to the state championship tourney, and because of their determination and superb teamwork they did just that – the first time in the 43-year history of Sartell High School the boys basketball team went to state competition. For another thing, the Sabres performed at the peak of their powers against a team that is widely acclaimed as the most accomplished, ferociously talented basketball team in the state. The Sabres knew from the get-go what they were up against, but they didn’t flinch. Even as they saw defeat coming during that terribly intense game, they played as if there was no tomorrow. And yet another thing: After the game, the Sabres – disappointed, naturally – gave full credit to the tremendous talents of their opponents. There was no bitterness whatsoever. There was a mutual admiration of the kind only the best winners and best losers always demonstrate. In Sartell Newsleader interviews with coach David Angell and several Sabres players, it was so impressive how these team members stressed the indelibly positive reactions of their experiences leading up to the state tournament, even in the wake of their loss at the state level. They discussed the joys of playing basketball at Sartell High School; they talked about the importance of teamwork and camaraderie; they praised the guidance of coaches; they expressed gratitude for their legions of diehard fans; and they all shared upbeat thoughts about their plans for future goals in life. True losers don’t learn anything. They turn sour and then give up. The Sartell Sabres lost the state championship. It was a temporary loss, and because of their true grit, sterling character, discipline and hard work, the Sabres are long-time winners. Those hard-won and important character traits will make them winners throughout their lives. Congratulations, Sartell Sabres!

Opinion ‘Bridges help people cross rivers’ Did you know Lady Diana was still alive before she died? I didn’t, either. Not until the other day, when I saw a headline that stated: Diana was still alive hours before she died Shocking. Just imagine – alive, then dead. That’s one of many headlines a news colleague emailed me last week. In the email attachment, there are about two dozen headlines that have been photographed from a variety of newspapers. I have to wonder, though, if some are hoaxes because a few are so obscene and/or just plain dumb I cannot imagine how any headline writer could have written them – even in haste – without knowing how “bad” they are. It’s hard to imagine how such headlines could have escaped the eagle-eyed attention of a proofreader, unless the proofreader called in sick that day. However, I know all too well how “blooper” headlines can happen. During a hectic day, when a newspaper staff is scrambling under deadline pressure to put together a paper for publication, the hurried last-minute writing of some headlines can lead to awful mistakes. It can happen within hastily written stories, too. My own most regrettable blooper is: “Adolescence is the confusing corridor that leads from childhood to adultery.” When I read goofy headlines, I laugh, but then I cringe, knowing first-hand how easily they can happen. Here are some of the other “bloopers” sent to me, with my parenthetical reactions: Barbershop singers bring joy to school for deaf

The U.S. Constitution is not a living document Is the U.S. Constitution the law of the land or not? Are we a nation of laws or not? Recent events have caused me to wonder. Some now seem to believe if a law is inconvenient, we should just change it to suit ourselves or the situation. If a particular law doesn’t favor our group or our agenda, we should just change it to meet our modern needs or wants. I hear the word fairness tossed around. Nothing is more fair than a system of laws designed around the equality of all individuals with no special favor being granted to anyone. Our Founders got it right. They put into place a template that, when observed and followed, deals with all our modern situations. No person or persons should be singled out for special consideration for any reason regardless of any past injustices or perceived injustices. First and foremost the U.S. Constitution is indeed the supreme law of the land. It’s not a living document. It was good when it was adopted and it’s good now. The document itself has in place methods for amending it if and when changes are necessary. In fact, the first 10 amendments, The Bill of Rights, are clear examples of legitimate changing of the Constitution. There have been other

Ron Scarbro Guest Writer amendments throughout the years. No reasonable person can deny that in this world there is right and wrong, good and evil. There is black and white. Issues facing us can be decided by those very easy factors. Nuance has become a convenient method for some people to try and circumvent what is right. Our nation guarantees every legal citizen the rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Nowhere, however, is there any guarantee of success. We are instead guaranteed equal opportunity. Our outcome will be based on our hard work, our talent and in some cases just plain luck. Some of our citizens will become wealthy and some will not. Such is life. Some may even work long and hard and still fail to achieve monetary success. Again, such is life, but we as free people get to decide what success is. I believe in personal responsibility. I am responsible for the care and feeding of my family, not your family. That is your responsibility. I believe in obeying the law and I expect you to do the same.

If you don’t, I expect the law-enforcement agencies my tax dollars fund to arrest and prosecute you. The very first amendment to our Constitution guarantees us all the right of free speech and the freedom to practice our religion and its tenets or to practice no religion at all. That is not a guarantee with a time limit. Nowhere in that guarantee is the requirement that my religious beliefs should be compromised because of some politician’s zeal for a nationwide, onesize-fits-all health-insurance program. Of course the Second Amendment guarantees you and me the right to own and to bear arms. There is no nuance here. This amendment was never about deer or duck hunting. The true purpose of this amendment was and is for my protection against both home invaders and government invaders, either foreign or domestic. Finally, I believe we are a country of diversity. We always have been. The only difference between today and 1776 is there are many more of us. We already have in place a system of government sufficient to deal with our diversity. We do not need more laws. We just need to obey and enforce the laws we have.

of accomplishment. Watch him skillfully cut out puzzles for his little brothers on a scroll saw. Guide his hands in the carving of a snake and creation of a bear puzzle for sale at the ‘Magic Moments Ball.’ Skyler and I think we were the ‘best in the show.’” The two were matched in the “School- and Site-Based” program and met once each week during the school year. They played board games, made and flew paper airplanes in the gym and flew kites outside in warmer weather. During the school year, they did not meet off-site. When the school year ended, however, Riner and Figallo wanted to continue with the program. They expanded to the “Community-Based” program where they met outside the school and increased their fun activities. Some of their activities included attending as many BBBS events as they could, spending time at the library, bike riding, swimming, fishing, playing board games and card tricks, playing catch with balls, playing pool, bowling, working on lots and lots of woodworking projects, eating lunches at places such as “Mongos” and other activities. They went to the theater to see the movie called “Wreck it Ralph” and really enjoyed it. Riner said he would never have gone to that movie on his own. Riner and Figallo have also shopped together for Christmas gifts for Figallo’s family and also for items for Figallo. “Skyler is an excellent shopper,” Riner said. “He spends his money very well. He takes a long time to make comparisons and frequently does not make a purchase. He knows how much money he has available and decides how to allocate his funds.” Riner said Figallo is fun to

Sartell Newsleader • www.thenewsleaders.com watch when he shops. “He compares prices and assesses value; it’s not a fast process,” Riner said. “I just tag along and listen to him think aloud about his choices. I’ve told him several times I think he is a very good shopper.” Figallo, 15, is a student at St. John’s Preparatory School. His father, Andrew, works at Merrill Corp., and his mother, Shaana, recently passed the Minnesota Teacher license exam after graduating from St. Cloud State University in December. Figallo has two younger brothers – Rainer, 6, and Donovan, 4. Figallo started with the BBBS program when he was a student in Sauk Rapids. A teacher, who had had a good experience with the program, suggested Figallo would like it, too. At about the same time, a class member of Figallo’s mother had also given a passionate, informational speech about the program. Since male volunteers were minimal, he was originally matched with a Big Sister. Figallo’s mother said she was a wonderful match, but as Figallo grew, his needs changed and the program matched him with a Big Brother. “We are forever thankful to BBBS for recognizing he needed a match that could be with him throughout the years and help mold him into a well-rounded, healthy, positive young adult,” Shaana said. “And they succeeded when they paired Skyler with Bill.” Figallo is active in plays and musicals and Riner says he always lands a major role. Recently Figallo performed as the “Scarecrow” in the “Wizard of Oz” performance at the Paramount Theatre. The two also watch other plays and musicals at the Paramount. Figallo has played soccer, participates in track and cross country and enjoys attending German Camp in the summer. Riner, married for 48 years,

has two sons and five grandchildren. A Minnesota resident for the past 10 years, he is retired from an engineering and management career in heavy manufacturing. Before joining the BBBS program, Riner had experiences with his sons and grandchildren and says he does many of the same things with Figallo. Riner believes all youngsters need a good adult role model who interacts with them in a loving, nonjudgmental way. He said kids thrive on it and it’s essential for their healthy development. “The BBBS organization is a proven way of providing this vital component to many young people,” Riner said. “Being a part of this organization as a ‘Big’ is very rewarding. “We are just two guys, one young fellow and one not so young sharing time together. Something we would not have if it were not for the pairing brought about through the marvelous BBBS organization.” Figallo said Riner deserves the BBBS award. “He’s one of the smartest, funniest and nicest guys I know,” Figallo said, “and I am glad he’ll finally get recognized for it.” Figallo said Riner has taught him many things about a variety of subjects. He has taught him to understand math, how to be safe and have fun at the same time, how to play chess and other things. “Teaching me to play chess helped me learn I needed to plan ahead,” Figallo said, “anticipate what was coming next and to plan accordingly.” Figallo said Riner has helped him to see the world in a few different ways. Riner liked classical music as much as Figallo did, so they listen to that a lot. “I found it to be a mostly relaxing genre of music,” Figallo said. “It helped me slow down and think about things. When-

5

ever I get upset or stressed out, I listen to classical music to remind me to calm down and think about things. Most of the time, it helps me realize what was wrong and how it could be fixed.” Figallo said Riner also taught him a few things about people

and about the difference wearing a smile and being nice can make. Riner had shared a story about getting stuck at the airport and how the person waiting in line ahead of him had yelled at the woman behind the counter. When it was Riner’s Big Brother • page 10

Trains from front page boose on a flatbed truck to Waite Park. It couldn’t come by rail because of its badly aged and weakened bearings.

Long history

photos by Dennis Dalman

Above: Sitting in the caboose cupola, Anil Shah looks out toward the Waite Park carshop facility where the caboose was manufactured in 1943. Shah, a St. Cloud State University student from Nepal, is helping restore the old caboose. Right: An old caboose lantern, with red and blue lenses, was fueled by kerosene and hung at the rear of the caboose so it could be seen by trains that might be following far behind.

The boxcar was used by the Great Northern Railroad from the time it was built in the spring of 1943 until 1980. It was latched onto the back of countless trains during their journeys primarily in Minnesota and North Dakota. The caboose, like cabooses everywhere, served as a kind of traveling “office” for the train’s conductor and other staff – typically two brakemen. All would keep an eye on safety issues while the train was on the tracks. Another “duty,” though an unofficial one, was for the conductor to wave merrily back to the happily waving children and adults in cars traveling on roadways near the tracks.

Exhibit

The refurbished bright-red boxcar will be one part of a three-part exhibit on a track next to 3rd Street, across the street from Pesty’s Bar and Restaurant. The other parts of the “trio” will follow. They include a boxcar and a diesel locomotive engine. All will proudly display a famous logo – “Rocky,” the Great Northern Railroad mountain goat. Euteneuer loves to share details about the permanent exhibit. The boxcar, which recently arrived from St. Paul in mid-February, was built at the Waite Park car shops in 1948 – the first made completely

of steel and the first one with roller bearings. The diesel locomotive engine, a gift from Xcel Energy, was built in 1941 and will be sent from Becker, where it is now, to Waite Park. The trio of train-car exhibits will be hooked together, front to back, just like an abbreviated train. Starail members are also hoping Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad and the City of Waite Park can negotiate the purchase of the car-shop building, which would be adapted into a train museum with thousands of fascinating artifacts culled from the long history of railroading. The rail industry shaped much of American history and culture. It had a decisive effect on the settling of the West and the sad demise of the Plains Native Americans. Euteneuer is a long-time, passionate train hobbyist. Just the slightest mention of anything to do with trains can set Euteneuer down the track he so loves – the history, legend and lore of trains. Born in St. Paul, he was raised in Waite Park, a city well known for its “car shops” – the local slang phrase for the vast series of buildings where train cars were constructed for trains far and wide and the place where Euteneuer’s Grandpa Albert worked for 43 years. The car shops employed hundreds of people from throughout the area. The car-shop building is 300 feet long, made of yellow brick and built on solid granite bedrock. The oldest part, on the west, was built in 1890. The other half, to the east, was constructed in 1920. Between the car-shop building the train exhibit sits on a paved portion of the Wobegon Trail, which will eventually link up to the Wobegon Trail from St. Joseph and points west and

Friday, March 29, 2013 to the City of St. Cloud to the east. Euteneuer can foresee the day when people will enjoy a day visiting the train exhibit and the car-shop museum, and many visitors, he said, will be bicyclists or hikers on the trail.

Refurbishment

Although the boxcar was in sad-sack condition when it arrived in Waite Park, the members of Starail were determined to bring it back to life. They sandblasted it, repainted the inside, put in seating cushions, redid a rotted part of the wooden floor and installed new windows with shatter-proof glass. That labor of love continues. Just recently, Euteneuer and two other men worked inside the caboose, sprucing it up. The other men were Barry Schreiber, secretary of Starail and a professor of criminal-justice studies at St. Cloud State University; and Anil Shah, an SCSU student of computer technology who hails from the world’s “rooftop,” the country of Nepal high in the Himalaya mountains. As the men worked, doing various tasks within the caboose, Euteneuer proudly called attention to the caboose’s features. Its walls have been repainted a mint green, which is the original color. The repaired tongue-and-groove wooden floor will be painted brick-red, also the original color. The cast-iron stove, bolted to the floor, is the original that was used for heating the car and for cooking. In true railroader fashion, like a conductor of yore, Euteneuer brought a cast-iron skillet and ingredients to make a stove-top quiche – eggs, spinach and cheese. The red caboose is a “cupola-style” car, meaning there is

a raised portion (cupola) in the very middle of the car so two people can climb up a ladder and sit down in facing chairs while looking out several windows above the boxcar. It’s high enough so workmen could sit and watch the top of the train cars ahead of them as it chugchugged down the track. Cabooses were created in the mid-19th Century and were considered “traveling hotels” for the train staff by railroad companies. They were spartan accommodations and yet also rather cozy and homey with their wood or coal-fired stoves and their sleeping benches. Euteneuer and his assistants are currently working to install cushions on the two long sleeping benches. They will also install a chemical toilet, an air conditioner and – to the delight and amusement of visitors – a four-foot-long, bright-red cribbage board made by Euteneuer, complete with gold and silver actual railroad spike “markers.” While riding in boxcars, railroad staff during their down times enjoyed playing cards and cribbage.

Bye, bye boxcars

The word “caboose,” historians surmise, came from the Dutch word “kabhuis,” which referred to the compartment on the main deck of a ship where meals could be prepared.

Sartell Newsleader • www.thenewsleaders.com For many decades, cabooses on trains were required by law. Rail staff had to keep a close eye on safety factors, such as air-brake pressure and rail parts overheating. Then, in the 1980s, the invention of contraptions known as “flashing rear-end devices” more or less sealed the doom of cabooses. Known as FREDS for short, the electronic devices automatically kept track of safety concerns and could instantly relay any information to the engineer at the front of the train. Nowadays, the conductor is often also at the front of the train, with the engineer. Euteneuer and other train hobbyists are sad about the gradual decline of trains and train culture. That is why they want to preserve as many artifacts as they can for the enjoyment and enlightenment of future generations. School children have already enjoyed visits to the caboose. Many of them ask their teachers if they can “stay and play” there. The exhibit will become a part of Waite Park Family Fun Fest every June. Generations of children in the “good old days” grew up waving at conductors while traveling with their parents. Many old-timers fondly remember the song, “Little Red Caboose.” “Little red caboose chug, chug, chug

Little red caboose chug, chug, chug Little red caboose behind the train. Smokestack on its back, back, back, back Coming down the track, track, track, track Little red caboose behind the train. Last car on the end, end, end, end Racin’ ‘round the bend, bend, bend, bend Little red caboose behind the train . . . “

Above: Visitors to the caboose, when it’s opened to the public, will have a chance to play cribbage, using this giant red-caboose cribbage board with actual railroad spikes for markers. Ron Euteneuer is holding the board he dreamt up and created. Left: A very old radio, which still works fine, lends an air of “good-old-days” authenticity to the inside of the caboose.

School-board meetings can be viewed online by Dennis Dalman news@thenewsleaders.com

Video recordings of Sartell-St. Stephen School Board meetings can now be viewed online by the public. It’s one of several efforts by the new school board to open up communications between the board and the public it serves. The regular monthly board meetings are taped, and the video is then uploaded to the district’s webpage within 48 hours of the meeting. Links to the video can be found at www. vimeo.com/isd748. “The ability to have our community watch school-board

meetings at their convenience will continue to support enhanced communication efforts,” School Board Chair Michelle Meyer stated in a webpage memo. “We realize everyone may not be able to make Monday night meetings but are still interested in the happenings of our district. This addition will allow for more information to be accessed by our community in a timely manner.” Superintendent Joe Hill said he also believes online access to meetings will be a big plus. “This is a progressive means to enhance communication with our community in the 21st Century,” he stated in a memo. “This aligns well with Vision 2015 in

supporting and enhancing open and responsive communication, which allows for greater community engagement.” Three other efforts by the board to keep lines of communication open are these: 1.) The addition of a student representative to sit on the board in a non-voting, advisory capacity. 2.) Occasional question-answer sessions for the public, most recently at Liquid Assets coffee shop in Sartell. 3.) The scheduling of occasional meetings in St. Stephen. The April meeting will be held there at 6 p.m. Monday, April 15 at St. Stephen City Hall.

A site plan for an apartment complex – Schultz Apartments – was recently approved by the Sartell City Council. The project, to be built just west of Victory Avenue, will consist of 49 units on a 3.28-acre site.

Big Brother from page 5 turn at the counter, he told the woman she didn’t deserve what she had just received and that she had handled it very well. Riner ended up getting put in a first-class seat because he was nice and wore a smile. Figallo’s family is happy he has met Riner and made a good friend. They said they realize how important it is for any child to have someone he can trust and is comfortable enough with to share feelings. The family is glad for an authority figure like Riner, who can guide “Little Brothers” through listening, understanding and being together through difficult times and joyous times. Figallo’s younger brothers wish Riner could be their Big Brother, too.

Almost half of the area will be greenspace, with 74 trees and 212 shrubs. There will be eight one-bedroom apartments and 41 threebedroom apartments in the complex, which will be three stories

high. There will be two accesses at Victory Avenue. The applicant for the site-plan approval is Rick Schultz, owner; along with Mahler and Associates Architect.

Riner was nominated for the award by the BBBS agency. He said it’s an “honor and a privilege to represent and promote the program,” and he would recommend the program to others. “You will most likely make a difference in a young person’s life and have a whole lot of fun in the process,” Riner said. “There is a very good chance you will get more than you give.” Figallo said he doesn’t really know anything about the other ‘Bigs’ in the BBBS program, but he believes Riner is the best. Whenever he needs someone to talk to, is bored and doesn’t know what to do, or is confused about math, Riner is there to help. Figallo said Riner listens, offers ideas for him to use his time productively and helps him understand math. “Bill is the best ‘Big’ because no matter what I require to get the skills I need to succeed in

life, Bill is always there,” Figallo said. Figallo would also recommend the BBBS program to others. “BBBS has a lot of events, fun things to do and gets us discounts at a lot of places, but the best thing is they gave me a best friend for life, a Big Brother,” Figallo said. This is the second year both the state Big Brother and Big Sister have been chosen from the central Minnesota agency. The Big Brother Big Sisters program began in 1969 and provides youth with one-to-one mentoring relationships. The Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Minnesota program currently has 190 children who are waiting for a mentor.

Residents urged to prepare for possible flooding by Dennis Dalman news@thenewsleaders.com

necessary – the following tips: 1. Contact your insurance company about purchasing flood insurance. That type of insurance does not become effective until 30 days after the date of purchase. 2. If possible, have sandbagging equipment and supplies ready. 3. If your home may need sandbagging, you will also need a pump to remove water that will seep in. 4. Organize volunteers now who can help sandbag your house. 5. Locate alternative storage for valuables. 6. If you have a basement, remove or relocate all paints, solvents, fuel-oil tanks or other contaminants. 7. If necessary, plan another location in which to stay if your home is damaged. 8. Know how to shut off the main power breaker, main gas supply and main water valve. 9. Be aware if your home does sustain flood damage, the city building inspector will conduct a damage assessment, which could include exterior and/or interior.

The report will determine if the home is habitable or not. In the event of flooding, Hughes said, the City of Sartell will assist, if needed, in organizing volunteers to help with sandbagging. The city will make available for purchase the bags, sand and delivery of the items when available. Sand must be placed on the property of the property/ homeowner, not in a street or alley. However, the city cannot guarantee there will be enough supplies or volunteers, Hughes said, adding “that is why personal preparedness is so important.” There will be updates about flooding on the Sartell City website at www.sartellmn.com. Anyone with questions should call Hughes, who is the also the emergency management director, at 320-251-8186 or Butch Rieland, deputy emergency management director and fire marshal, at 320253-2171. Another good resource to check is the Stearns County Emergency Management website at www.co.stearns.mn.us/LawPublicSafety/Emergency Services/Flooding.

The divergent diamond interchange project in Sartell has caused Metro Bus to create two separate detour routes for bus service to and from the city. The two new routes will begin Sunday, March 31 and will continue through the fall. Both were created out of what was known as “Route 31 Sartell.” Metro Bus’s action is necessary because of the closure of CR 120 and other construction work in the area near Epic Center, the site of Walmart, Sam’s Club and several food businesses.

The former “Route 31 Sartell” was split into two routes: a different Route 31, which will run from the St. Cloud Transit Center in downtown St. Cloud to Walmart in Epic Center, every half hour. The other newly created route, Route 32, will provide hourly service within the City of Sartelll. Passengers can transfer to or from each route by asking for a “transfer” on the first bus they board. Both routes will meet once an hour at the Sartell Walmart parking lot. Route 31 scheduled stops include the transit center, St. Cloud Hospital and Sartell Walmart. Route 32, which is service

within Sartell, includes a large loop-route with stops at Walmart, the medical campus, Coborn’s Superstore, Sartell City Hall, North Riverside Plaza, Hi-Vue Mobile Home Park, Country Manor and CentraCare Health Plaza. The buses connect at Walmart every hour on the half hour – for examples, 6:30 a.m., 7:30 a.m., 8:30 a.m. and so forth. Schedules for the special detour routes, along with route maps and stops, are available at the Metro Bus Transit Center or online at www.ridemetrobus. com.

It’s better to be safe (and prepared) than sorry. That’s the advice from Sartell Police Chief Jim Hughes about the possibility of flooding in Sartell this spring. Wet soil, combined with a very heavy snowfall, could lead to flooding. “The City of Sartell will do its best to be ready, and we hope you too can prepare for potential flooding so any damage can be minimized,” Hughes said in a statement. Those who think flooding is a remote possibility obviously did not live in Sartell after the winter of 1965 when spring floods inundated many areas of the city. In recent years, the city has experienced minor flooding. Sartell has updated its emergency-response plan and has enhanced working relationships with neighboring cities, along with Stearns and Benton County Emergency Management, Hughes noted. Hughes said he hopes all residents will review – and heed if
