City Council Brushes Up on Street Sweeper Financing

Schmeckpepers’ New Home Arrives by Dan Ruud The product of a communitywide effort has landed on the Schmeckpeper family’s property at 601 West Forest Street

Kay Siemon

Belle Plaine Woman Among Top Nurses in Twin Cities Kay Siemon of Belle Plaine was recently recognized by Mpls.St. Paul Magazine as one of the best nurses in the Twin Cities area. Doctors, nurses and patients were asked to recommend nurses who “go above and beyond the call of duty in all areas

of health care.” The judges reviewed nearly 100 nominations with an eye toward professionalism, bedside manner and patient interaction, credentials and experience, and impact on

when a large tree landed on it during the June 19 storm that blew through Belle Plaine with winds up to 80 miles per hour. Since then, friends, neighbors and other members of the community have pitched in to see to it that Chris Schmeckpeper, his mother Shirley and sister Judy will have a replacement home. A series of benefits, combined with some insurance money, has done just that. Chris Schmeckpeper and his sister Judy Nelson were somewhat tongue-tied when it came to listing the people, businesses and organizations who helped them the past two months, much like someone who just won an Oscar and is afraid of leaving someone off a long list of thank yous. A series of benefits helped make the purchase of the 10year-old mobile home possible. It made its slow trek to Belle Plaine from Woodlund Homes in Wyoming, Minn. The benefits included a spaghetti dinner, silent auction, bake sale and a 5K run, walk and stroll. Trinity Lutheran Church hosted the dinner, auction and bake sale. “There were so many people helping us,” Chris Schmeckpeper said. “But I really want to compliment Wendy (Thomas) and Lisa (Mathwig) for all the hard work they did organizing these things.” Judy, who works at McDonald’s in Chaska, said that establishment also helped out, including donating beverages, cups and napkins, etc. for the spaghetti dinner. A number of businesses donated some 200 items for the silent auction. Shortly after the storm hit, Sue Rasmussen, who lives near the Schmeckpepers, called KARE 11 TV, which brought increased attention to the family’s crisis. “This town really pulled together for us,” Chris said. Help was still pouring in after the arrival of the home. Friends Dave Thomas and Andrew Haefner were seeing to it last week that the home becomes properly settled onto its new site, a process that has to be completed before the family can move in. Schmeckpeper said he hopes he and his family can move in by sometime this week. Chris, Shirley and Judy plan to live together and share expenses. Since the storm, Chris has been staying with friends and Shirley has been staying at Judy’s place. During an interview several hours after the storm hit and with the large maple tree still on top of his home, Chris said he was just thankful he and his mother were not hurt. The fam-

by Dan Ruud The Belle Plaine City Council addressed several issues at length Monday night, including the pros and cons of leasing or outright purchasing a new street sweeper. Public Works Superintendent Al Fahey reported that the city’s current street sweeper is 10 years old and is in need of replacement. A new street sweeper (2012 Pelican) would cost $158,295, while the cost to lease a new Pelican sweeper on a five-year term would be $33,830 per year. Staff recommended the latter. Council Member Cary Coop did some math and said that the leasing option would cost the city some $170,000 compared to the $158,295 state contract purchase price. And that’s just after five years (street sweepers normally last about 10 years before maintenance costs begin to significantly increase). Fahey reported that the cost to refurbish the existing machine at this time would be approximately $23,560, and that such costs would likely increase over the next several years if the city was to keep it. Fahey explained that with the lease option, the city would own the street sweeper after five years and at that time have the option of keeping it or starting up another five-year lease

on a new sweeper and receive some $80,000 toward the new lease by trading in the initiallyleased sweeper. Fahey added that $80,000 is considerably more than what the city would get by trading in a 10-year-old sweeper.

After further mathematical review and some comments on the benefits of leasing by Finance Director Dawn Meyer, the council voted 4-2 to go

Woman Killed in Crash Was Former Belle Plaine Resident There was a Belle Plaine connection to the crash that killed three members of an Eden Prairie family at about 9 p.m. Friday on Highway 12 near Willmar. Killed were Michelle Hoffman, 40, her 8-year-old daughter Julia and Hoffman’s mother-in-law Marta Stoffers, 68, the latter of whom was from Atwater. Michelle Hoffman’s son Jason, 5, was also riding in the car but his injuries are not life-threatening. Michelle Hoffman’s husband, Michael Hoffman, taught at Belle Plaine Elementary School a number of years ago before Julia and Jason were born. He and Michelle lived in Belle Plaine. According to the state patrol, Paul Wickenhauser, 21, of Cokato, was driving a Chevy Silverado that hit the van carrying the four family members. The

van then went into the ditch and burned. Wickenhauser, who was treated and released, was taken to Kandiyohi County Jail and charged with criminal vehicular homicide. According to the criminal complaint, Wickenhauser told officers that he had been drinking shortly before the crash. Officers found a broken rum bottle on the road, an open bottle of liquor in the cab of his pickup truck and a case of beer in the back. Wickenhauser reportedly had a preliminary breath test reading of .07, which is under the legal limit of .08. The Hoffman family had been spending the summer with relatives and planned to return soon to Oman on the Arabian Sea, where Michael and Michelle had worked for the past two years at an American international school.

From the Dewey Decimal System to the iPad, Belle Plaine public school students and K-12 Media Specialist Peter Jacobson will have the benefits of new technology when they return to school in a few weeks.

School District Believes iPads Will Raise the Bar on Learning 140 Ready for 2012-13 School Year

by John Mueller Last winter, the idea of spending about $200,000 in new technology and staff development divided members of the school board. When students return to Belle Plaine public school classrooms, they’ll find the new tools ready for the school year. Last December, the district OK’d spending $200,000 on a technology plan that includes 53 new iMac desktop computers and 110 iPads. Overall, the move dedicated $151,875 toward investment in various Apple computers and $51,425 toward staff development so teachers will know how to make the best possible use of the new

Township Board Okays Agreement With City to Repave Entire Road The Belle Plaine Township Board last Wednesday approved the same agreement that the Belle Plaine City Council approved the previous week, thus ensuring that the entire length of the Belle Plaine Trail (between Highway 169 and Ashford Way) will be repaved this summer. “Belle Plaine Township has approved the resolution and provided the city with a fully signed and executed copy,” stated Belle Plaine City Admin-

istrator David Murphy. “They have also paid their portion ($60,537) of the project and Chard Tiling and Excavating has been contacted and informed to move forward with the full project.” Chard Tiling was awarded the contract for the project in June at a bid of $128,113.60.

Some Late Summer Chess Debby Heimerl, Brenda Engelbrecht and Geri Higdon recently opened their new business on Adam Busack, right, of Eden Prairie and Jordan Hartwig of Belle Plaine were the finalists in on Main Street in Henderson. the Intermediate Division of the annual End of the Summer Reading Program Chess Tournament at the Belle Plaine Public Library on Aug. 10. Busack defeated Hartwig in the finals, while his brother, Noah Busack, won the Beginner Division. Nearly 30 youth participated in the tournament. Among them, pictured below, are Jack and Tom Hammargren of Belle by Karen Swenson Street, lent itself as a great retreat ing out with something new and Plaine.

Knitting Ties That Bind

PLEASE RECYCLE

Interwoven with their pets and their passions, Geri Higdon, Brenda Engelbrecht and Debby Heimerl have spun their friendship into a new business on Main Street, Henderson. The Knitting Knest and Kuriosity Shoppe opened its doors this month and was met with an enthusiastic welcome from the community. “There is much excitement from the customers, and curiosity,” said Debby. “There is a surprised reaction to the change the building has gone through.” The last enterprise in the building was Wingnut Welding and Repair, yet many still refer to the building as the old Midland Station. “The last time I was here I had my oil changed,” was a common comment heard since opening last Tuesday, Aug. 7. The maroon and green-themed exterior has received many compliments along with the “comfy” look to the interior. “It’s unique from other yarn shops,” said Debby. It was their dogs and their passion for crafting that united the trio. Debby, a dog groomer who ran a shop in Belle Plaine, has had both Geri and Brenda as customers. When Debby became interested in knitting four years ago, she encouraged Geri to join her group that met at Kingsway Retirement Living in Belle Plaine. The knitting group would hold retreats at The Rectory Bed and Breakfast in Belle Plaine, owned by Brenda and her husband. What was once an Irish Catholic church rectory on South Elm

for the large group of knitters to meet. Geri had worked for 45 years at St. Frances Regional Medical Center in Shakopee. “I was born there and they kept me,” Geri mused. Retiring from nursing one year ago, Geri found herself idle. “I don’t like being retired,” she admitted, missing the interaction with others most. Taking up knitting has generated an interest in the art of crafting. “I want to show people the art of knitting and crocheting is coming back.” Locker rug hooking is the next craft she would like to bring into the Shoppe. Brenda, who has worked in the fast service and hospitality industry for thirty years, said “I’ve always had a passion for crafting when I found something I like. I am a firm believer in repurpose, reuse and recycle. Give them a new life and new use. I like to find things that have character built into them.” And for a while, Brenda ran a consignment shop in Belle Plaine. “I was my own best customer.” Hence Brenda’s talent will lie in the “Kuriosities.” “I believe local crafters and artists should have an outlet to share talent and the rewards. There are fabulous artists out there that have yet to be seen because they have nowhere to market their work.” As a fiber artist, Debby will keep the store supplied with quality yarns. “It’s a learning experience all the time. They are always com-

Grand Opening Saturday (Aug. 18), Cologne Academy celebrated the opening of a 13,00-square-foot addition. The K-8 public charter school will begin its fifth operational year Sept. 4 with almost 400 students. Many families came out to help move into the new addition, which was followed by an ice cream social and the ribbon-cutting ceremony. Pictured are Director Lynn Gluck Peterson and Hans Hagen, of Hans Hagen Homes and Partnership for Better Education. The partnership funded the expansion.

different.” Like yarn made from recycled blue jeans, which the Shoppe sells and yarn made from corn, which they hope to have on their shelves soon. The idea to open a shop came one day when Geri mentioned “wouldn’t it be fun” … and the idea to open their own Shoppe took root. Last fall the women began their search by looking at buildings in Belle Plaine, but the price didn’t fit their means. “Finally I told Geri, ‘Let’s sit back from this for a while and see what happens,’” said Debby. Every dog has its day and Cleo, Dolores Hagen’s dog, was being groomed when Debby happened to mention they were looking for a building. It didn’t take Dolores long to get back to Debby about the corner building in Henderson. Yet when the women took a look at the building they were overwhelmed by the amount of work it would take to turn the old garage into a yarn Shoppe. “When I first saw it,” said Brenda, “I thought ‘Are you kidding me?’” “It all happened so fast,” said Debby. Dolores and Budd Hagen purchased the building, did the major renovations and leased the building to the ladies. All three sing the praises of Ken and Kenny, husbands to Debby and Brenda, who laboriously went about the finish work on the building while the women set up the business end. The location of Main Street, Henderson made perfect sense to the trio. “It’s so cute and quaint,” said Geri. “Not that far off 169.” “After the Tangled Skein closed,” in St. Peter, said Debby, “there is nothing between Excelsior and Mankato.” The three women agree on one thing: Henderson is welcoming and supportive of its shops. “Henderson is a happening place,” said Deb. “Given time and the right combination of shops, it could be another Stillwater.” “Our goal is to really become a destination,” said Brenda, and in a couple years “We’d like to need a bigger space.” Rugged, densely textured chunky wools, silky soft angoras, and rainbows of color fill the shelves of the vintage furniture complimenting an array of garden and household gifts. Catering to all levels of knitters and crafters, customers are encouraged to sign up for future classes with an open invitation for crafty folk to pull up a chair, leave your work behind and laugh, share stories and knit.

Movie Night in Cologne

Waconia’s Brent Jarvis and his daughter Taylor made their way back to their vehicle from the concession stand during the showing of “Despicable Me,” Friday night in Cologne. The movie was part of two double-features Cologne firefighters and an army of volunteers presented as part of the Fourth Annual Firehouse Drive-In Friday and Saturday (Aug. 17-18). The drive-in movie night is a fund-raiser to restore the department’s first motorized truck, a 1923 American La France. Nearly 400 cars and an estimated 1,500 people attended the two presentations.

School Board Brings BPEA Grievance to an End by John Mueller The grievance the Belle Plaine Education Association filed against the school district for eliminating the jobs of two para-professionals has come to different conclusions. One will be back in a similar position and the other has left the district for a similar job with another metro area district. After a closed-door meeting with its attorney lasting nearly an hour, the Belle Plaine School Board recently approved a settlement agreement with Joe Ploetz and a separation agreement with Allison Mereness. Both agreements passed by 4-1 votes, with Director Gary Steinhagen dissenting. Ploetz and Mereness worked the 2011-12 school year as para-professionals in the media centers at Oak Crest and Chatfield elementary schools. Superintendent Kelly Smith said Ploetz would be rehired for a similar position that will be fashioned to avoid future claims he is working as a teacher. The district plans to hire a second media para-fessional. They’ll both report to Peter Jacobson, the district’s media specialist and a licensed teacher. Any teaching involving media work will be left to Jacobson, Smith said.

Mereness has taken a job with another metro area school district. The grievances the Belle Plaine Education Association (BPEA) filed triggered the school board moving to eliminate the two para-professional positions earlier this summer. Two days later, on the advice of its legal counsel, the district eliminated the positions as if Ploetz and Mereness were actually teachers. The concern over their work was originally “brought up to the BPEA by union representing para-professionals. The union contended there was two paras (-professionals) doing what teachers are suppose to be doing, said BPEA President Jerold Stauffacher. “It is about as simple as that,” Stauffacher said. “When this was brought to us, we acted.” Under the settlement agreement with Ploetz, the school district agreed to pay him $6,611 above what he was scheduled to earn during the 2011-12 school year. The agreement, says he will work as a full-time media para-professional as a member of the union representing the Belle Plaine School District’s para-professionals. Ploetz and the BPEA also agreed not to sue the school district.

Le Sueur County Pioneer Power Show This Weekend The Le Sueur County Pioneer Power Association will hold its 39th annual Show this Friday, Saturday and Sunday (Aug. 2426). The cost for a pass, which is good for all three days, is $7. Children 12 and under are admitted free. The activities will take place at the Le Sueur County Pioneer Power Association Show Grounds, located 13 miles south of Belle Plaine on County Road 26. This year’s featured tractor is the Massey Harris Ferguson line. There will also be the usual collection of tractors and equipment of all makes, models and colors. Many working demonstrations of various old-time farming practices will be conducted, including draft horse power, threshing, corn shredding and shelling, combining, and plowing. In addition to the various field activities, visitors may view hundreds of gas engines on display in the tree-shaded “Gas Engine Alley.” The Halloran Schoolhouse and recently relocated 110-year-old Lexington Church will be open, as well as the Dresselville Creamery Building.

On Friday, the 11th annual Consignment Auction will be conducted. The auction attracts hundreds of bidders each year and a large amount of antique tractors, machinery and other equipment is sold.

“It is specifically agreed to by the parties that Ploetz shall have no right as a licensed teacher in the school district and no rights to be transferred to or hired for a licensed teaching positions in the school district,” according to the settlement accord. The district’s agreement with Mereness says the district will pay her $12,394 over the $15,565.90 she was scheduled to earn during the 2011-12 school year. The agreement states Mereness and her representatives also promise not to take legal action against the school district or seek additional damages. “Mereness and the union agree that she has no rights to be re-employed in any position by the school district in the future,” the separation agreement states. The agreements both indicate the outcome of the two cases do “not constitute a precedent, nor will it have any effect on the interpretation of the teachers’ and para-professionals collective bargaining agreements or school district policies.” Smith initially said Mereness and Ploetz were both good employees. The district eliminated the two positions because two additional teaching positions were not part of the 2012-13 operating budget.

New Home (continued from page 1) ily wasn’t as fortunate in 1986 when a trailer fire a short distance away killed two family members – Chris’ and Judy’s brothers James, 16, and Charlie, 11. Judy still has scars on her arm and leg from the fire. “No matter what ever happens, we are kind and caring and help people out like they have helped us,” Judy said. “That’s the way we were raised,” agreed Chris. “Mom taught us to help people and now people are helping us. I want to thank them all.”

Yesterday, August 21st, was Poet’s Day. The words poet and poetry can get a response from revulsion to pure delight. Poetry is a sneaky thing though. Our kids find the stories that contains rhymes and the clever use of repetitive sounds to be quite entertaining. They can be fun to read and often the manner in which they are read, can make these stories more entertaining. Clever rhymes can make for snappy and memorable quotes, sayings, or advertising jingles. Many of our songs are simply poems that have been set to music. I have heard the Beatles referred to as “poets of a generation”. I do not know who said that first and my reading found so many references to that phrase, that I suspect that nobody really knows who said it first. If you like poetry, I hope that you make use of our selection in the Scott County Library System. If you are not quite sure about your taste for poetry, here is an opportunity to try again. Things that you did not care for before can take on new meaning over time. For people with young children, I would encourage you to share a few poems with your young readers. Teach them the concept of poems and what makes poetry special. You may unleash some special artistic talent. They might grow up to be poets of our generation. The Adult Book Club that meets here at the Belle Plaine Library on the 4th Thursday of each month at 7 p.m. is looking for new members. This month they are reading “The Burying Place” by Brian Freeman. If you would like to join the club, stop at the library to get a copy of the book. Meeting is on August 23.

Gueningsman Memorial Pull Set for Green Isle’s Industrial Park Friday

If horsepower and noise is your thing, Green Isle’s industrial Park is the place to be Friday (Aug. 24) when about 60 teams compete for points and prize money in the inaugural Jeff Gueningsman Memorial Pull. Teams will be competing in eight different classes ranging from two-wheel drive “T-buckets” up to pro- and super-stock semis and tractors. Gates open at 5 p.m. to allow fans to claim a bleacher seat, tour the pit area and check out the competitors and their vehicles. Competition will begin at 7 p.m., said Kipp Trebesch Sr. He and his son, Kipp Jr. are promoting the National Truck Pullers Association (NTPA) event. They are hoping for a crowd of 2,000 fans. The event will also be a fund-raiser for Green Isle and Hamburg firefighters, the Green Isle American Legion and Boy Scouts.

City Council (continued from page 1) along with staff’s recommendation to lease a new sweeper on a five-year term. Accounting for the two no votes were council members Gary Trost and Paul Chard, who indicated they would like staff to present additional options for street sweeping before making a decision. In other business Monday night, the council, following its longest discussion of the meeting, voted unanimously to deny Chris Meyer’s request for an after-the-fact variance to allow a 10- by 12-foot storage shed to remain within the utility easement area at 108 Oakwood Drive. However, the denial of Meyer’s request to keep the shed where it’s at does not mean it will have to be moved. Because there are so many other similar structures located on utility easements throughout town and other requests have come in for more variances, the council Monday called for a public hearing to be held on Sept. 17 on an ordinance amendment that would make it easier for the city to allow private sheds on drainage and utility easement areas, as well as bluff areas, provided that property owners sign an agreement that they will remove the structure if and when the time comes the city needs to utilize the easement. The planning and zoning commission, which recommended that such amendments be put in place, called for its own public hearing on the issue for Sept. 10. If the amendments are approved by the council the following week, it will become easier for Meyer and others in

Rivals and Friends

He passed away in July of 2011. Gueningsman was 46. His widow, Kay, is expected to compete in the four-wheel drive trucks class, said Kipp Trebesch Sr. Over the years, Gueningsman advanced through the ranks, competing in the modified tractor competition. He won region titles in 2005 and ’07 and moved up to the NTPA’s grand national level. In early 2011, six months before he passed away, Gueningsman took third at the National Farm Machinery Show in Louisville, Ken. “You have to be invited to go there,” Trebesch said. “It’s the best of the best.” Tickets for Friday night’s pull are available at the UFC convenience store in Green Isle. Tickets are $15 for adults, $8 for children age 10 and under. Kids under 5 are free.

the community to successfully apply for variances to keep the structures in place. *Unanimously approved a request by Chris and Katy Potter for a conditional use permit for a special home permit to allow a hair salon at 968 Mallard Lane. Among the conditions of the approval are that there shall be no employees and all parking needs to be off-street. *Unanimously denied a request by the German Days Committee to conduct charitable gambling at the Red Door Bar downtown. The council had tabled the issue on Aug. 6, citing a need for more information. However, staff reported Monday that the German Days Committee had not yet provided that information. During a public forum earlier in the meeting, Belle Plaine Chamber of Commerce Gambling Manager Tom Meger recommended that the German Days premises permit request be denied. If approved, the Friends of the Library would have kept the pull-tab portion of the charitable gambling at the site and the German Days Committee would have received the remaining portions, including tip-ups, paddlewheels and bingo. However, the council recently passed a change to the ordinance that allows only one entity per premises permit. *Following a presentation by Mark Ruffs of Ehlers and Associates, the city’s financial advisor, the council unanimously approved resolutions providing for the sale of $1,755,000 general obligation improvement bonds and for the sale of $4,650,000 general obligation water revenue bonds to finance construction of the city’s 2012 street reconstruction improvements and refund current water revenue bonds for interest savings, which staff reported will result in a savings of approximately $254,563 over the next 15 years.

*Unanimously authorized the mayor and city administrator to execute an agreement with Great River Energy to utilize the railroad crossing west of the city’s wastewater treatment facility for the construction of several legs of electric line. Great River Energy will be upgrading the service road to handle equipment during the construction of the CAPX2020 power line. As part of the agreement, Great River Energy will pay for balance testing of the wastewater treatment ponds to determine if the construction process damaged the ponds. *Unanimously accepted a donation of $163.64 from the State Bank of Belle Plaine for amenities at the Belle Plaine Community Swimming Pool. The money was earned by employees of the bank working at the Scott County Fair. *Unanimously approved a temporary intoxicating liquor license for the Belle Plaine Chamber of Commerce for the second annual Minnesota River Valley Scenic Byway HalfMarathon and 5K races on Oct. 13. The festivities be headquartered at Court Square Park. *Unanimously approved the conveyance of tax-forfeited land in the city for an authorized public use. The parcel is located at the northwest corner of Orchard and Lindsay Lane and serves as part of the city’s stormwater system at Prairie Ridge 4th Addition. The property was originally to be conveyed during the platting process for the development but was not deeded to the city. The city will obtain the property following submittal of the conveyance form and payment of $400.65 in conveyance fees. Due to the Labor Day holiday on Sept. 3, the next regular meeting of the Belle Plaine City Council is scheduled for 6 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 4 in the Belle Plaine Government Center at 218 North Meridian Street downtown.

Trebesch and Gueningsman met over 20 years ago. They both competed in the super stock four-wheel drive class in those days. Trebesch grew up in the Arlington-Green Isle area. Gueningsman was from Winsted. Over the years, the two men developed a rivalry that evolved into a friendship. Trebesch and his son were casket-bearers at Gueningsman’s funeral. The pull in Green Isle’s industrial park just off Highway 25 replaces a tractor pull held annually in New Germany. The landowner there decided he no longer was interested in hosting a pull event. His decision gave the Trebeschs the opportunity to arrange a pull in honor of their friend, Jeff Gueningsman. “We had been talking about putting together a pull before Jeff got sick,” Trebesch said.

New Teachers

120 Years Ago (1892)

Grain was but a half crop and the quality was as poor as could be. After the town was without a bowling alley since 1862 when Joe Benedict burned out, an alley was opened in the basement of the Weibeler building. The school board let the two teaching positions to the lowest bidders, Katie Clark of Belle Plaine ($25 per month) and J.C. Thompson of Ellsworth ($55 a month). Con Casey moved over from Assumption and took charge of the Merchants Hotel he had bought. Maggie Gated and Olga Krentz were opening their millinery store for the fall trade. Belle Plaine had an assessed valuation of $133,820, Jordan of $136,662 and Shakopee $443,136.

Jessenland Irish Festival Sunday

The Oratory of St. Thomas the Apostle Catholic Church is hosting the annual Jessenland Irish Festival Sunday (Aug. 26) on the church grounds. The event begins with a Rosary at 10 a.m. Father Jerry Berger will lead Mass at 10:30 a.m. Following Mass, a chicken/ beef dinner will be served from 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. Reservations for dinner are required. Call (507) 964-5514 or (507) 248-3506 to make a reserva-

tion. Dinner is $11 for adults and $8 for children. Live Irish music by The Tim Malloys will be from noon to 3 p.m. Other special features include a history program at 2 p.m., silent auction, beer stand, food and refreshments, Irish vendors and a childrens’ play area.

Construction Puts Detours Through Cologne Into Place

The three-quarters intersection project at the intersection of highways 212/284 at County Road 53 is requiring drivers making their way through the city to negotiate alternate route during construction. The project will create a threequarters intersection – also known as a R-CUT at the intersection, similar to the configuration at the junction of Highway 169 and County Road 3 in Belle Plaine. Once completed, traffic northbound through Cologne traffic will not be permitted to cross Highway 212 to continue north on Highway 284 or head west on Highway 212. Southbound traffic will be prohibited from crossing 212 to head south on County Road 53 or turn east on 212. A U-turn 750 to 1,000 feet east and west of the intersection will be available for north and southbound motorists. Drivers heading north on Carver County Road 53 toward Waconia will have to turn east on Highway 212 and cross the highway and wind through town to continue north on Highway 284. Motorists that want to head west on Highway 212 will have to use a similar route, but turn back to the south on 284 to continue west on Highway 212. Through the project, which is slated to be completed by Oct. 26, the Minnesota Department of Transportation (Mn/DOT) encourage motorists to keep an eye out for changes in detour routes during the length of the project. The project has been in the planning stages for months. Mn/ DOT has held several meeting to notify residents and businesses of the proposal. But Mn/DOT announced earlier this month it would begin work Aug. 13. The agency hosted a meeting with businesses the day the project started. Area businesspersons were upset they had no advance warning of the project’s actual start date. They contend several weeks’ advance notice would have given them time to warn customers of the coming proj-

ect and detour routes. The project is intended as a safety improvement. After six fatal crashes since 2001 and two in 2011, engineers for the Minnesota Department of Transportation say the proposed three-quarters intersection at Highway 212 and Highway 284/County Road 53 is critical safety improvement. In Belle Plaine, Mn/DOT said the three-quarters intersection of Highway 169 and County Road 3 saw 55 crashes of varying severities in 2005, ’06 and ’07. After the installation of a three-quarters intersection, Mn/ DOT said the intersection was the site of seven crashes in both 2009 and ’10.

Scott-Carver Master Gardeners Plant Sale Aug. 25 Perennials grace our yard and garden year after year with their unique foliage and color. Recommendations from the University of Minnesota Extension call for most perennials to be divided about every three years. Late summer and fall planting of these divisions allows four to six weeks before the ground freezes for the plant roots to be established. This is particularly important in our northern climate. Scott-Carver Master Gardeners will be hosting a sale on divisions from their own yards and gardens. The sale will allow you to purchase perennials, shrubs, fall bulbs, ornamental grasses, rhizomes, select annuals, books and other items at very reasonable prices. If you need advice, Master Gardeners will be on hand to answer your questions. Come check out our great deals on Saturday, Aug. 25 from 9 a.m. to noon at the Chaska Commons in the Rainbow parking lot. The address is 200 Pioneer Trail, Chaska. Master Gardener is a program of the University of Minnesota Extension.

Oldest RV Dealer courses designed to help them gain a better understanding of the new technology – primarily the iPads – so they can help their students make the best possible use of it. The new electronic tools will be in use in the elementary and secondary buildings from day one this year. “These will help kids learn,â€? said Peter Jacobson, the district’s K-12 media specialist. Working in concert with the district’s upgraded wireless system -- a $280,000 investment – the lightweight devices will assist students with research as well as enhanced graphics. A student in a science class will be able to look up the parts of an insect in 3D rather than just see what is on a flat page. “This is more energizing than just a textbook,â€? Jacobson said. With Apple’s catalog of apps intended to complement the iPad, enhance learning and maintain product use, programs like iBooks Author is a free application that will allow students to create their own books and presentation. Apple markets iBooks Author as “an amazing new app that allows anyone to create beautiful multi-touch textbooks — and just about any other kind of book — for iPad.â€? It comes with galleries, video, interactive diagrams, 3D objects, and more.

With the first day of school just under two weeks away, activity is picking up around all of our school buildings, but in particular at the JH-SH school as activity practices are in full swing. Once again we have had a great turnout for all of our programs with outstanding numbers for cross country, football, tennis and volleyball. Teams have already begun having scrimmages against other schools and official contests are not too far behind. Varsity tennis begins competition this Thursday with a meet at Chaska in the morning. The cross country boys and girls teams host their annual pre-season scrimmage with MN River Conference opponents at the Ney Center on Monday afternoon. Volleyball opens their season with a big match against rival LeSueur-Henderson on Tuesday at LeSueur and our football team opens the season at home next Thursday night against the New Ulm Eagles at 7 p.m. at the Athletic Complex. Good luck to all of our teams as you begin the fall season! Teacher and staff workshops are also just around the corner with new teachers on site this Friday for a workshop day and then all staff reporting for workshops beginning on Monday. Workshop week continues through Thursday and culminates with Open Houses at our two elementary school buildings. Chatfield Elementary will host parents and students on Thursday from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. and Oak Crest Elementary will host parents and students from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. In addition to the elementary open houses, there is an open house/orientation for new 7th and 8th grade students at the JH-SH building on Wednesday, August 29 beginning at 5:30 p.m. All parents and students will assemble in the south gym to begin the evening’s activities with a presentation from VJ Smith, a motivational speaker who will also address our district staff during the day. Mr. Smith has been a professional speaker for more than a decade and is also a published author. He honed his speaking skills through his membership in Toastmaster’s International and twice was a finalist in that organization’s “World Championship of Public Speaking.� Drawing on a lifetime of experiences, Smith peppers his talks with anecdotes and personal stories to illustrate key points. He feels he is better equipped to be a story teller. Members of the public are invited to hear his inspirational message as well on Wednesday at 5:30 p.m. in the South Gym of the high school. On Tuesday, September 4, our doors will open once again to the young people of our community as another school year begins. Teacher assignments have been mailed out to elementary students and families and school bus route information has been mailed out as well. If you have any questions regarding this information, please contact your appropriate school building or the school district transportation provider, Stier Transportation. I am excited about the start of another school year and know that it is going to be another great year for students, staff and families at the Belle Plaine Schools! As always, if you have any questions about school matters, please feel free to call me at 873-2400 or check our website at www.belleplaine.k12.mn.us. Go Tigers!

The Scott County Meth Task Force invites you to participate in the sixth annual Tee It Up for the Task Force Golf Classic fund-raiser on Sept. 7 at Stonebrooke Golf Club. There will be an 8:30 a.m. shotgun start. This year, the Task Force is focusing its efforts on battling the rising popularity of heroin usage. Money raised from this event will go directly to creating new tactics and programs to curb the use of this dangerous and harmful drug. A hole-in-one contest and a $1 million shoot out are among the many features of this fundraiser. Many other prizes and opportunities will be available. To register, visit www.stonebrooke.com/events and click on the Task Force tab. For more information, call the Scott County Meth Task Force at 952-496-8416.

Indians Numerous in Early Days By J. E. Townsend

The following story was written by J. E. Townsend founder of the Belle Plaine Herald. He was a witness to life in Belle Plaine before and after the Dakota conflict of 1852. This article was originally written and printed in 1934.

Being so often asked what I knew about the Indians in Belle Plaine in early days, will try and give you what came under my observation. When my folks arrived here about June 1, 1857, I was in my fourth year. From that time until early in the spring of 1862, a span of over four years, I was more or less in contact with Indians, a reason for which will be seen later on. After my father got the Mechanics Hotel finished in the fall of 1857, which was located half way up the Grove street hill, the only thoroughfare leading to the ferry and steamboat landing in those days, he was appointed express agent for the steamboat lines and also looked after the freight hauling. This required a good span of horses and lumber wagon and during the closed season of river traffic he made frequent trips to St. Paul with produce and on his return brought back merchandise for the stores. Teamsters with heavy loads generally took the third day to make the round trip. In driving to St. Paul the first night was generally spent at Bloomington ferry, where there was a good sized hostelry for the accommodations of teamsters. My father bought a great deal of venison, wild game, deer skins and furs, wild honey, etc., from the Indians, some of which was used at the hotel but the greater part was taken to St. Paul. This is course brought a great many Indians to our place, many to beg if they didn’t have anything to sell or exchange. Squaws would have lots of fancy beaded moccasins and other articles which they sold very cheap or would exchange for bread which appeared to be one of the main articles of food they were after. As for meats, they had plenty of wild game, including deer meat. Dried venison, or as some called it, “jerked” venison, was quite popular in the summer as it would not spoil. It was made by both whites and Indians and many thought the latter had the best. The same could be said of buckskin. The Indians had a way of tanning that was far superior to any regular tannery. Many here tried it out. The wearing of moccasins by white children and women was quite common in those days when they could be had so cheaply from the squaws. Many a pair I wore and my mother also. We had two tribes of Indians here, the Sioux and the Chippewas, but the former outnumbered the latter by far and were located in different places on the south side of town while the Chippewas, I was told, kept to the other side if the river, which was considered the line between them. They could never agree until the outbreak when they all joined together. In those early days I never

Joseph Edward Townsend

knew of but one Indian, a Sioux, that could speak English. He went by the name of “Charley” with everyone, though some said his surname was “Bounce”. He held out around town a great deal, perhaps because he could talk to everybody and was always friendly to the whites. Many a time he was called as an interpreter in some business transactions with the Indians. It was said that during the Indian massacre he met settlers that formerly resided in Belle Plaine and assisted them to escape at the risk of his own life if it was found out by the Indians. In those early days the Indians transacting business with my father could only count up to ten. They would call out “cashpoppy” when their hands had to be watched. Every time the two hands were raised with the fingers extended counted ten. This was repeated ten times to make a dollar. Raising one hand meant five cents. It seems each thumb and finger counted as one. At this late day I suppose there is nothing of the kind any more and probably hasn’t been for many years. The dining room of the Mechanics Hotel was right off from the bar-room with two windows facing east on Grove street. When the boarders were called in from the bar-room for meals there would frequently be Indians among them and when there was no one to take charge of the bar-room during meal time the Indians were ordered to “pocketgee” which they did very sullenly and then would rush around into the dining room windows, peering in and watching every mouth full the diners took when the shades had to be frequently pulled to obscure their view. This all looks very rude to us now but in those early days the Indians didn’t appear to know any better. I remember the Indians bringing in large quantities of wild honey in pails and kegs with chips and bark mixed all through it in getting it out of the hollow trees. This was then melted in a large iron kettle over a fire out in the yard, the same way as farmers heat water for hog

butchering. When hot enough, the rubbish could be skimmed off after which the honey and wax could be separated and the wax remelted and run into six quart milk pans. Had tacks of such beeswax cakes, which, with the clear honey in large crocks, was taken to St. Paul. This process is quite different from the method used by our honey producers now with their extractors and artificial combs. While the Indians were still here there were two brothers living some distance south of town known as the “Wild Connolly’s” who lived a good deal the same kind of a life, depending on deer, game\, furs, etc., for a living. I happened to be present one time when my father bought several wild geese from them, which it seems were to be found here at that time. Frequently since then when the “Wild Connolly’s” came in my mind I would think of wild geese or vice versa. Speaking to Dennis Connolly about them a short while ago, he said he had heard of them but they were not related in any way to any of his folks. I don’t think the Indians hung around other public places about town as much as they did at our hotel for the reason that my father did so much trading with them, and being near the steamboat landing and flour mill where they would get the cheaper grade of flour and corn meal. The Indians were great lovers of tobacco, especially the black plug and smoking tobacco. Of course, when they could not get the real tobacco they had to content themselves with kinnikinick, which they could easily procure and prepare. In looking up the word, my dictionary says it’s “the leaves of the sumac, willow, etc., as smoked by the American Indians”. This is entirely contrary to what I ever saw. Have made it myself many times the same as I saw the young Indians make it. In those days about every bar had a cigar box on it filled with smoking tobacco, free for everybody, especially customers, in which kinnikinck was mixed and when smoked would scent up the room, giving it a very pleasing aroma. In later years the smell of it always reminded me of the Indians. In case any of the Herald readers would wish to try it, will give the particulars as follows: You have no doubt noticed on the edges of some marshes a sort of low with reddishcolored, smooth bark which shows up very bright during the winter months. Cut these into sticks one to two feet in length and scrape off the outer bark lightly; then scrape off the inner bark and when dried in a tin plate on a stove, crush it, many doing this in the palms of their hands. Have seen Indians in making it scrape the inner bark so that one end of the shavings would hang to the stick which was held over an open fire until dry and then rubbed off the stick by hand. As for the Indian camps I could not say how many there were in this locality. During my time I only visited one twice and that was located a little over a mile south of town, a few rods to the right of the Meridian road at the foot of the hill. Would judge this was in the winter of ‘60 and ‘61. Some of

the boarders would borrow our horse and cutter to drive out to this camp on a Sunday afternoon and on two occasions I went out with a couple of them and had to remain in the cutter to see that the buffalo robe did not disappear while they were making the rounds of the teepees. In this settlement, I would judge there were from 75 to 100 Indians, including squaws and children. The second time I was there while out in the cutter alone, a young Indian probably three or four years older than I, came out of a teepee about 75 feet away and pulled a bow and arrow on me. I commenced to scream when an old squaw came out to see what the trouble was. I suppose he only intended to scare me, but as soon as they got him inside the teepee he was the one that did the yelling then. On my visits there I noticed three or four small red-painted coffins resting on poles that were fastened in the crotches of two nearby trees at an elevation of about eight or ten feet. I figured that the bodies were placed in that position to be out of the reach of animals and to keep them frozen until spring when the frost would be out of the ground so as to dig graves easier I may be mistaken in my surmising as I never had it explained to me. Bodies of Indians, or at least what was left of them, have been found in different places about town. Some of them only across the street from our hotel, or a little higher up on Robert Devine’s place. In doing some grading about the premises the body of an Indian was uncovered in the rear of the house said to have his gun and some trinkets buried with him. Did not get to see this, it’s only what I was told, but about 1859 or ‘60 I watched them scrape off a knoll in front of the house down to the street when the workmen struck an old ironstrapped trunk in which there were the bodies of two fairsized papooses in a good state of preservation. Dr. Kieth, who boarded with us at the time, admired the long black hair on the bodies so much that he had to cut the tresses off to keep. The trunk was closed up again after being viewed by many and interred so deep in the street gutter near by that it was thought it would never wash out. The largest number of Indians

I ever saw at one time was in the latter part of the summer of 1859 or ‘60. They had formed for a dance on Meridian street in front of where the Johnson store now stands. They were all stalwart Indians with heads decorated with feathers and in their best toggery. Never knew exactly how many there were, but forming a perfect circle, all standing close together, on a hundred-foot street, I judged there must have been 75 to 100. Most of them carried either large gourds with small stones in them to shake or tambourines. These crude instruments were all used in unison with their chant, “Hey-yah! Hey yah! Hey yah!” as they all slowly moved in step sideways. Just about every one in town that could get away was out to see them. I took it all in while standing in front of a small drug store across the street from Johnson’s corner, which was then Chatillon’s corner. For a long time after that the boys at school would put on the same kind of a dance with the “Hey yah!” chant but minus the instruments. You have been reading about the Indian battle at Shakopee and some atrocious affairs that happened in that vicinity between the whites and Indians. Well, nothing of the kind ever occurred here but we were often afraid of it for this reason: A man here by the name of Malem Freeman, a step-son of Mr. MacFarlan, who kept a general store on the grounds now occupied by the Moore-Backes oil station, was one of those socalled wild westerners and the owner of a fine black stallion. He frequently got wilder than usual when he had too much to drink and he would mount his stallion, and having a large pistol in a holster fastened to his saddle, would parade from one hotel to another, as far apart as they were, “with a chip on his shoulder,” as the saying goes, daring people to fight him. Have known him to ride up in front of the Mechanic’s Hotel and yell out, “If there is any one inside that thinks he can fight me to step out.” Everybody seemed afraid of him on such occasions, even the Indians, and I guess the officers too. Anyway he got away from here before anything happened and I believe enlisted in the Civil War where he could get all the fighting he wanted. Shakopee,

of course, had far more Indians than we had, that place as well as that of Chaska nearby, were both named after Indian chiefs. Shakopee still has the remnant of an Indian village a mile or more down the river on the opposite side. The Indians all cleared out of this vicinity about eight months before the terrible massacre which started at Action, August 17, 1862, a day sooner than it was agreed upon to commence the terrible carnage. When news of the Indian outbreak reached Belle Plaine it was probably August 19, for I know that on the same evening a volunteer company of about twenty men was organized at once. They selected John O’Neill, on of our merchants, whom it was said had some military training, for their captain, and were put through a hurry-up training on Main street, marching back and forth between the O’Neill store, where the Weibeler corner is now, and about where the Presbyterian church now stands. Teams were very scarce in those days and my father had a good span of horses and a wagon, so he joined the company, being so well provided to haul provisions and ammunition. The whole outfit left for St. Peter early next morning, where they were met by recruiting officers from Fort Snelling and were all drafted to serve, except my father, E. C. Townsend, who was beyond the age, being 52 years at the time. However, when his horses, which he thought so much of, were drafted, he informed the officers that wherever they went he was going with them. Our most exciting adventure at home was after my father’s departure. He left my mother to run the hotel with what assistance she could get from the hired girls and boarders from the mill and foundry. Then came the rush of refugees from up the river. Those coming through Henderson and from there down would take the bottom or river road which would land them at our hotel on Grove street, while those fleeing from the Le Sueur direction and southwest would reach the center of town over the Le Sueur road. A great many women and children left Belle Plaine for Shakopee, Fort Snelling and St. Paul, which were the destinations of about all who reached here from up the river.

Don’t stop playing fastpitch softball when summer ends. Play Fall Ball and let the fun continue. The Belle Plaine Fastpitch Association sponsors this shortened season of fastpitch softball for girls between the ages of 8 and 16. Doubleheader games will be played on the following Sundays – Aug. 26, Sept. 9 and 16. There will be a state qualifier tournament on Sept. 22 and 23, with a state tournament being held on Sept. 29-30. Due to the “short season” the

association will need to have a commitment from players who will be able to play every Sunday for league play and weekends for tournaments. The cost is approximately $75 (may be less depending on number of girls) and there will be one practice per week. You can submit a 2012 Fall Ball interest form online at www.leaguelineup.com/bpfa if your daughter is interested in playing. This is not a commitment, but rather an idea of how many girls are interested.

Tigers to Host Chaska Thursday Tigers Go Down in Round 1 by Dan Ruud The Belle Plaine High School tennis team will get the school’s 2012-13 sports campaign started when it hosts Chaska this Thursday at the Belle Plaine Athletic Complex starting at 9 a.m. The Tigers finished 4-2 in the Minnesota River Conference, 10-12 overall, in 2011. Among those losses was a controversial 4-3 decision to MRC champion Jordan in the first round of the Section 2A Tournament in Jordan. The Tigers boarded the bus back to Belle Plaine that evening thinking they had upset the Jaguars 4-3, but learned a short time later that a Jordan protest was upheld, which reversed the score to 4-3 in favor of Jordan. That was 10 months ago and the Tigers have their sights set on a new season, one they will have to do without the services of a number of their regulars from last year. Among the graduated are two of the team’s four all-conference honorees – Amy Hankins (No. 1 doubles) and Emily Otto (No. 2 doubles). Tashia Kalkes and Nora Meuleners, both of whom were allconference honorable mention,

also graduated, as did teammates Cassie Schneider, Adri Doheny, Nora Meuleners, Erika Schneider and Anna Stuewe. Emily Bettleyoun, an allconference selection last year, moved and is no longer on the team. Among those leading the charge back to the courts this season is all-conference recipient and No. 1 singles player Ashley Morrison, who is a junior this year. Other regulars back are sophomore Jane Schneider, junior Kate Savage, senior Kaisa Hallgren and senior Lindsay Vennie. All the above were singles players except Hallgren. Others on the varsity roster are seniors Allison Stolee, Jamie Read, Katelyn Zurn, Mellina Hovorka, Sam Gregory and Sophie Brazil; junior Meghan Gavin and eighth-grader Ireland Lambrecht. “We lost eight seniors who made up most of our doubles line-up,” said Belle Plaine coach Annette Moylan. “We will need to work on finding the right mix of doubles partners and our consistency. We are returning most of our singles

lineup, which will be helpful.” Moylan is optimistic that her team can contend for a conference title this season, even though defending champ Jordan “has most of its letterwinners back.” “Practice has gone great so far. I have a lot of young players that have worked hard in the offseason at summer camps and they look good. I look forward to another fun and successful year,” Moylan said. 2012 BPHS Tennis Schedule Aug. 23 vs. Chaska Aug. 24 at Farmington Invite Aug. 27 at Blue Earth Area Aug. 28 vs. LS-H Aug. 30 vs. Sibley East Sept. 4 vs. Tri-City United Sept. 8 at St. James Sept. 10 at New Prague Sept. 11 vs. Jordan Sept. 13 at LS-H Sept. 18 at Sibley East Sept. 20 at Tri-City United Sept. 24 at St. Peter Sept. 25 at USC Sept. 27 at Jordan Oct. 1 vs. Fairmont Oct. 4 Start Section Oct. 23-26 State Tourney

Next week we will have a season wrap-up and make sure to follow the only other RVL ‘C’ team remaining in the state tournament as the Jordan Brewers play Saturday at Faber Field.

Leavenworth 7, Tigers 5 The Tigers were squared up with the Orioles from Region 2C and got behind quickly after giving up three runs in the top of the first inning. Starter Ryan Diers had trouble figuring out the strike zone, which seemed to be smaller than a softball. Tiger draftee Brad Walsh from Gaylord came in to try and figure out the zone, but it seemed like nobody in the ballpark except the man in blue knew how big or small the zone actually was. Walsh threw well for the Tigers, giving up four runs in his six-plus innings of relief. Tigertown sent a pitcher of their own to the mound in the ninth inning but it didn’t last long.

Last year, the Tigers won the conference title for the second season in a row with a 7-0 mark (22-8 overall) before losing the subsection championship to MRC rival Jordan in five games. Jordan went on to win the section championship against LS-H and gain a berth in the state tournament. Belle Plaine hopes to not only win another conference title this year, but to take an extra step or two in the postseason and make it to state. Leading the way will be senior

outside hitter Haley Fogarty, a longtime starter who led the team with 386 kills, 257 digs, 37 aces and 279 assists in 2011. Those numbers earned her coMVP honors in the conference. Other regulars back and their totals from last year are fellow seniors Kirsten Johnson (214 kills, 145 digs, 26 aces and 514 assists), Jordan Going (99 kills and 57 blocks) and Claire Otto (172 digs and 30 aces). Johnson is an outside hitter and setter, while Goring, who is the team’s tallest player at 6-3, is a middle blocker. Otto is the starting libero. According to Cassie Wolpern, who is beginning her third season as head coach of the team, among this year’s top newcomers is eighth-grader Mariena Hayden, who will be an outside hitter. Another eighth-grader, defensive specialist Elizabeth

Johnson, is also on the varsity roster. Other varsity players are senior Ellie Murphy (hitter), and juniors Amara Meyer (middle blocker), Marykay Nasby (hitter), Devin Lehman (setter), Emily Vinkemeier (hitter) and Erica Selly (defensive specialist). The Tigers graduated two of their four all-conference players from last year – middle blocker Abby Wolpern and libero Lizzy Eischens. Hitter Becky Koepp, who was honorable mention, also graduated. Wolpern said Belle Plaine’s strengths this season should be “depth and powerful outside attacking.” Concerns include the fact that half of the team is new to varsity, which means that

Belle Plaine’s second annual Minnesota River Valley Scenic Byway Half-Marathon and 5K runs will take place on Saturday, Oct. 13. The Belle Plaine Chamber of Commerce, sponsor of the event, is seeking volunteers to help operate the races, which you can do by contacting the chamber at 952-873-4295. If you would like to participate in one of the two runs (walkers are also welcome), you can register at www.belleplainemn.com or www.andersonraces.com. You can direct questions regarding registration by e-mailing Mary Anderson at mary@andersonraces.com. Last year’s inaugural races attracted some 500 runners. This year’s 5K race will have a new route that will wind through Belle Plaine. The halfmarathon route will once again be run along the fall foliage of the Scenic Byway, including crossing the Minnesota River

bridges in Belle Plaine and Blakeley. Both races will begin and end at Court Square Park (race headquarters) in Belle Plaine.

Harvest Treasure Coin Hunt Being Organized

St. Patrick’s and Bar-B-Q Days in Belle Plaine will no longer be the only times you can go searching for hidden medallions. Organizers this year are planning to hold a Belle Plaine Harvest Hunt during the weeks leading up to the races. The hunt will be very similar to those prior to St. Patrick’s and Bar-B-Q Days in that clues will be published in the Herald with basically the same rules. The prize for finding it will be $100 in Belle Plaine Bucks. More information about the treasure coin hunt will be presented with the publishing of the first clue on Sept. 26.

Danielle Renne, Rebecca Weber and Jodi Renne will be among thousands of walkers who’ll leave Southdale Center in Edina Friday morning in the Susan G. Komen Cancer Walk. The three-day fund-raiser will be completed Sunday at the Minnesota State Capitol in St. Paul. “Drinking Buddies” by Sara Smith

Photo Contest Winner Says She Was ‘Just Messing Around’ When She Took Picture Call it luck or just being summoned to the right place at the right time. Sara Smith, 24, winner of the Herald’s 2012 Summer Photo Contest, didn’t know the contest even existed when she was called to the backyard of her mother Mary’s house earlier this summer. Sara said her mom came inside and told her she should get

the camera and take some shots of what was happening in the backyard. When Sara got there, her 2 1/2-year-old son Travis and dog Tank, both with mouths wide open, were drinking from the lawn sprinkler. Sara had no idea that when she took the photo it would become a Facebook sensation of sorts. Her photo of Travis and Tank received 95 “likes”

on the Herald’s Facebook page, 14 more than the second-place photo taken of a farm sunset by Monica Kubes, and 33 more than the third-place photo taken by Stephanie Rosario of a girl’s head partially submerged in a swimming pool. “I couldn’t believe it,” said Sara, referring to her winning the contest. She added that she was “just messing around” when she took the photo. Her mother was the one who told her about the contest afterwards, which she then entered. Sara, a 2006 graduate of Belle Plaine High School, said she used her husband Derek’s Nikon to take the photo. Derek, who serves in the U.S. Army, has been deployed to Afghanistan since May. He’s expected to return in early 2013. Sara won $50 in Belle Plaine Bucks for receiving the most Facebook votes in the contest. Also, her photo of Travis and Tank, titled, “Drinking Buddies,” will automatically be included in the Herald’s 2013 calendar when it is published at the end of this year. The second- and third-place winners both receive a one-year subscription to the Herald and a 2013 calendar. As part of the series, the Herald will conduct subsequent photo contests for the fall and winter. The Herald will choose a selection of photos from each contest (spring, summer, fall and winter) to be included in the 2013 calendar. Winners of the Spring Contest were (1) Kellen Bergs, (2) Kaitlyn Perkins and (3) Tony Kornder.

Man, Woman Injured in Blakeley Motorcycle Crash

A man and woman were injured when the motorcycle they were riding on crashed into a ditch along the 15100 block of Blakeley Trail (County Road 60) Sunday afternoon. The crash occurred shortly before 5 p.m., near Blakeley Trail’s intersection with Sage Avenue. Ruben Alexis Cruz Baez of Coon Rapids was driving a motorcycle southbound on Blakeley Trail. His passen-

ger was Zonia Joseline Ramirez Guevara of Brooklyn Park. The crash occurred when Baez lost control of the motorcycle. It crossed the northbound lane and crashed into a ditch. Baez was airlifted to Hennepin County Medical Center. His injuries were deemed potentially life threatening, said Scott County Sheriff Kevin Studnicka. Monday afternoon, Baez’s condition had improved and he

was in satisfactory condition. Guevara was taken to St. Francis Regional Medical Center. Her injuries were far less severe. Both Baez and Guevara were wearing helmets, according to Belle Plaine Assistant Fire Chief Todd Otto. But Baez’s license to drive was suspended and he did not have a motorcycle endorsement, Studnicka said.

For Belle Plaine Trio, 3-Day ‘Walk’ is Worthwhile Mission

They know the pain will be burning, the stress a constant for 60 miles over three days. But for three Belle Plaine women, it will all be worthwhile if the fund-raiser helps scientists and doctors eventually find a cure for cancer. Danielle Renne, Rebecca Weber and Jodi Renne are among the thousands of walkers participating in the Susan G. Komen Three Day Cancer Walk beginning Friday morning at Southdale Center in Edina and will be completed at the state capitol Sunday (Aug. 26). The route winds through the western suburbs and into St. Paul. The walkers will camp-out Friday and Saturday nights at Macalester College in St. Paul. The Renne sisters walked their first three day cancer fundraiser last year. They worked as ACS volunteers along the route the previous year. Weber will be taking on her first threeday. Their friend, Jill Edberg, planned to walk the event, but can’t because she is pregnant and her doctors are opposed to her participation in the grueling event. They are the only Belle Plaine walkers Renne and Weber know of in the three-day walk. The trio has about $8,200, well above the $7,000 team goal. Each of the walkers had to raise at least $2,300 to participate. Edberg has raised just under $800. Donations in their name can still be offered online --www.the3day.org -- and search for the team name, “Journey for

Community Youth Fair Thursday The Belle Plaine Community Youth Fair, presented by Belle Plaine Community Education, will take place Thursday, Aug. 23 from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at Oak Crest Elementary School. The event, which will feature over 15 organization booths, carnival games, interactive booths and fun demonstrations, will allow parents to learn how their children can get involved in sports, arts and other afterschool programs in the Belle Plaine community. For more information, call Belle Plaine Community Education at 873-2411.

Three Day Cancer Walk

Miles: 60, 20 miles per day Start: Southdale Center, Edina Finish: Minnesota State Capitol, St. Paul Who: Three Belle Plaine women will participate in the fund-raiser. To donate online in their name -- www.the3day. org -- and search for the team name, “Journey for Jugs.” Jugs.” For all three women, the walk is a personal statement of support for people they love and care about, family and friends who’ve been afflicted with cancer. They hope their efforts will play a small role in the efforts to help people currently fighting cancer and the research that one day led to cancer’s cure. Weber will walk with her friend, Tracy Billingsley, on her mind. She was diagnosed with breast cancer four years ago. The cancer has spread to her brain. The two women were military wives, waiting for their deployed husbands to return home. Danielle and Jodi Renne will walk with the memory of their aunt, Denise Bebo of Lester Prairie. She passed away three years ago, a victim of cancer. Cancer, they say, is on both sides of their family. They expect the opening ceremony will again be an emotional event. Survivors will carry flags. As 2,000-plus walkers leave Southdale, they’ll be greeted by horns from passing motorists, some openly weeping as they wave to the walkers. “It’s solid people for about three blocks,” Danielle Renne said. “It’s crazy how many people support this.” Weber is nervous about the possibility of facing hot, humid days. But she’s excited for the experience. As the walkers begin to spread out and the fatigue begins to set in, the walkers will begin to feel the pain in their feet and legs. Along the way, they’ll find businesses – a Walgreen’s and a car dealership in previous years -- that offer bottled water and other encouragement to the walkers. The trio will meet other walkers, people like themselves who have loved ones effected by

the disease. Those stories and the anticipation of the “cheering stations” along the way will keep them going. “Those are, honestly, what keeps you going,” Jodi Renne said. The women have been training for the walk, taking time for long walks on their own each day. The training will help, but it will only ease the mental challenge the trio faces. They will sleep in tents at the college in St. Paul and will shower in a semi truck divided into stalls. The Rennes recall the feeling from their first morning, when they woke up, tired and sore, and realized there were still two more days – 40 miles – to go. “You have to keep your eyes on the prize at the end,” Danielle Renne said. They all know any fatigue they feel is a fraction of the pain a cancer patient endures during treatments. All three women plan to participate in the three-day walk next year. And they hope one day the efforts of walkers like them will help find a cure for cancer. “More and more people know about it. Everybody seems to know somebody who’s fighting cancer,” Jodi Renne said.
