City Proposing 5.3% Levy Increase in 2013 The Belle Plaine City Council next Tuesday night is expected to approve a 2013 preliminary property tax levy of $4,528,272, an increase of $228,635 (5.3 percent) over this year’s levy of $4,299,637, which was a 2.7 percent increase over the 2011 levy. The 5.3 percent increase for 2013 represents only the city’s portion of your property tax bill. County and school taxes are not included. For a third straight year, Belle Plaine, due to state budget cuts,

will get $54,473 in state local government aid, some $300,000 less than years past. Of next year’s 5.3 percent property tax increase, Belle Plaine Finance Director Dawn Meyer said 3.3 percent will go toward increases to the budget. The other 2 percent will go toward expenses associated with the city’s recent purchase of its current public works building. The city council will adopt the final 2013 property tax levy and budget in December. At that time the preliminary levy can New teachers at the Belle Plaine School District this year are back row, from left, Nick Zwick, Jennifer Grabow, Katie Graff, be decreased but not increased.

Public Hearing on 2013 Street Improvement Project Next Week The Belle Plaine City Council will hold a preliminary public hearing on the city’s 2013 street and utility project next Tuesday (Sept. 4). The hearing will start shortly after 6 p.m. Next year’s work is proposed to consist of street reconstruction and utility improvements at: – Main Street from Willow Street to Buffalo Street. – Eagle Street from Park Street to Main Street. – Buffalo Street from Main Street to Church Street. City Engineer Joe Duncan said the total estimated cost of the project is $1,963,850, of which $1,416,416 (72 percent) would be paid for by the city. The rest would be assessed to benefitting property owners. Staff reported that a reasonable estimate of the assessment impact to benefitting property owners will be available at the public hearing. In Duncan’s report presented to the council Aug. 6, it stated that inspections have revealed

that a substantial portion of the project area raised numerous concerns in regard to the existing sewer pipes and other infrastructure. He added that the existing bituminous street surfaces on Main and Eagle streets are characterized as poor and exhibit alligator cracking and raveling. “The public works department expends significant resources annually to rework, patch and otherwise maintain the streets in the proposed project area,” reported Duncan, adding that Buffalo Street, which was constructed in 1993, is in “fair condition.” Duncan said the city is about four months ahead of schedule when it comes to planning for its annual street improvement project. He said the reason for that is not to speed up the project, but rather to attract more favorable bids by bidding the project in January rather than on the doorstep of spring.

Sunday Was A Grand Day to be Irish in Jessenland

A warm, sunny afternoon, delightful music and good food drew a big crowd to the Oratory of St. Thomas in Jessenland Township. Several hundred Irish -- by lineage or in spirit -- came to the church for the annual Irish festival. After Mass and lunch, The Tim Malloys entertained the crowd with high energy pubstyle music. Violinist Larry Greenstein of Minneapolis (below; his wife is a McShane) strolled the grounds playing traditional Irish favorites. Megan Maloney of Mankato performed a traditional Irish dance to “Juniper.”

Without Major Projects, School Opens With New Faces in Charge by John Mueller When the school year opens Tuesday and students return to Belle Plaine schools, they’ll find a pair of new building principals greeting them at the doors. In a year without major construction projects, new leaders and an ongoing commitment to enhanced instruction highlight the beginning of the 2012-13 school year.

Enrollment Up

Belle Plaine Public Schools are expecting about 1,600 students in kindergarten through high school senior through the doors Tuesday, an increase of 34 from a year ago.

Kim DeWitte is the new principal at Chatfield Elementary School, replacing Bill Adams who took the superintendent’s position at Janesville-WaldorfPemberton. David Kreft is the new principal at Belle Plaine Junior-Senior High School. He succeeds Lowell Hoffman, who retired last year after three-plus decades of service. Mindy Reeder is the new principal at Our Lady of the Prairie Elementary School. The Catholic School has an all-new teaching staff. Reeder will work part-time at OLP and part-time at Most Holy Redeemer in Montgomery. At Chatfield Elementary School, DeWitte will continue working on professional learning communities (PLCs) – a system of classroom teachers working collectively to help all students improve academically -- as well as maintaining

the School of Excellence Chatfield Elementary School’s staff earned the past few years and received last year. PLCs are based on teachers collaborating to help students individually and collectively improve their academic skills in specific areas. The initiative is credited with Oak Crest Elementary School students improve their scores on state math and reading exams students took last spring. DeWitte is not planning wholesale changes to the program Adams and his staff initiated, but rather tweaks to the existing program. At Belle Plaine Junior-Senior High School, Hoffman laid the groundwork for his successor to introduce PLCs to the staff. Both Kreft and DeWitte were hired in part because of their experience with PLCs. Their work will make them more of a teachers’

coach and less of a building administrator than their predecessors. “The role of the principal has really evolved,” Kreft said. DeWitte saw PLCs help improve test scores during her seven years at Sibley East. “My job is to help the teachers get from where they are to where they want to be,” she said. “It’s about me being in the classroom helping teachers help kids.” DeWitte is looking forward and ready to meet students and parents in the first few days and weeks of the school year. She received 40 e-mails from school staff after the school board approved her hiring. She worked last year as principal at an elementary school in South Dakota. “I’m good, ready to start,” she

Meekers Appreciated, Wanted to Save Historic Downtown House They would have preferred to save the historic building at the northwest corner of Willow and Main streets. Ultimately, starting anew just made financial sense. So it was a little bittersweet for Todd and Connie Meeker to see the building razed Monday. Connie Meeker watched from across the street, talking with neighbors and reminiscing. From the rubble, a new history will begin. In four to six months, Dr. Todd Meeker’s new chiropractic office will open for business. And a new piece of Belle Plaine’s history will begin. “It’s very important to us,” Connie said Friday afternoon as Todd met with contractor discussing details of the demolition. “We want to preserve the history.” In the meantime, his office for the next four to six months will be at 168 Commerce Drive E. But those quarters are nothing but temporary. Dr. Meeker is looking forward to being back downtown. Built circa 1880, the building began as a house with workspace. Todd Meeker, a doctor of chiropractic, is the fourth chiropractor to practice the art and science of his craft at the corner of West Main and North Willow streets. He arrived in

Dr. Todd and Connie Meeker prepared for the razing of their office at the northwest corner of Willow and Main streets Friday afternoon. The building dates back to the late-1800s.

By Tuesday morning, Meeker Chiropractic was a pile of rubble. It will reopen permanently on the same site in four to six months. In the meantime, his office will be at 168 Commerce Drive E.

BELLE PLAINE HERALD, BELLE PLAINE, MINNESOTA

Area Mayors, Councilors Decide To Step Aside The look of city councils in Cologne and Green Isle will seemingly change now that the filing period for the fall election is closed. In the two area communities, incumbent mayors and councilors decided not to file for re-election. The filings closed Aug. 14, after the most recent issue of the Herald went to press. In both cities, unless a write-in candidate offers a surprise, the expected successors will be experienced councilors stepping up to fill the void. Election Day is Nov. 6.

Cologne

In Cologne, Mayor Bernie Shambour did not file for reelection. Councilor Matt Lien, who is currently in the middle of a four-year term, filed for the job and its two-year term. If Lien is elected mayor, the council will appoint his successor. Councilor Scott Williams filed for re-election to a four-year term. Joel Sievers, a member of Cologne’s planning commission, also filed. Jeffrey McInnis and Councilor Jill Skaaland did not file for re-election, leaving Williams, Sievers and McInnis vying for two council seats. Monday, City Administrator John Douville said Sievers’ application “was not able to be accepted. It was a late application and unique circumstance, which was not conducive to an effective affidavit. Mr. Sievers intends run an active write in campaign for the city council position.” Sievers called city hall the last day for filing for candidacy (Aug. 14). The affidavit needed to be in by 5 p.m. and Sievers stated he would not be able to get back to Cologne by 6 p.m. He asked if there was someone who could fill the form out for him. “I told him we would see what we could do,” Douville said. “The election manual states that a candidate can be drafted by five eligible voters in the district in lieu of an affidavit. The city could not get clear answers from the election manual or county election officials on the proper form to use.” In an attempt at best efforts, the city found a form staff thought could work. A citizen came and picked up the form and received 8 signatures for the drafting of Joel Sievers to be put on the election ballot and submitted that form just prior to the 5 p.m. filing deadline. “Our city attorney determined the next day our form was invalid and we had to inform Mr. Sievers our best efforts were not successful and we would not be able to put his name on the ballot,” he said.

cilors on the ballot. Geisler said the decision to pull out of the race had nothing to do with the size of the field of candidates seeking a two-year terms. “When I made the decision to run, I was not prepared to commit to a four-year term, either as a council member or as mayor. I intentionally chose to run for a two-year-term seat,” she said. “At the moment I filed, I already knew that several other people had already signed up before me for the same two-year term.” The terms were created by the resignation of Councilor Shane Sheets in the middle of a fouryear term and the final two years of the four-year term Laurie Pepin won in 2010 and vacated to take a job out of state. Steve Wilson was appointed to fill the vacancy. He is not seeking election for the final two years of the term.

Elsewhere

Townships holding fall elections in Scott, Carver, Sibley and Le Sueur counties also held filings. In most cases, candidates are unchallenged.

Scott County

In Belle Plaine Township, Robert Koenig and Doug Kasper filed for the supervisor positions. Myron Bratsch filed for the treasurer’s job to replace Kevin Slack, who is not seeking re-election. In St. Lawrence Township, no one filed for the supervisor’s position. Supervisor Hubert Jeurissen is planning a write-in campaign. Robert Wagner filed for the supervisor’s position in Blakeley Township. Maureen Busse filed for the clerk’s position. In Helena Township, Duane Deutsch and Edward Nytes are running for the two supervisor positions. Deann Croatt is running for clerk.

Belle Plaine in the Indian Uprising of 1862

Farmers Market Corner Great weather and a change of venue has kept the Belle Plaine Farmers Market hopping. You can find us behind the high school near Union Square Park until road construction is complete on Court Street. It’s a fun park so bring the kids to play while you browse. There are so many fruits and vegetables in the offering now, it’s hard to choose – broccoli, squash, potatoes, tomatoes, peppers, apples, pears and more. The tables are colorful and bursting with goodness. Next Wednesday, Sept. 5 will be a salsa contest. Bring your best jar of salsa and see how it holds up to the competition. The contest is open to every-

one. There will be a table in the middle of the market. Customers willing to judge will be given chips and a voting ballot. About 6 p.m. the ballots will be tallied and a winner will be announced. The winner will receive bragging rights, a mention in the Herald and gift certificates. Come to the market, judge and be judged. The Farmers Market is held Wednesdays from 3:30-6:30 p.m. May through October, currently at Union Square Park. No early sales, please respect the bell. Vendors are welcome. For more information, contact Lisa Fahey at 952-873-5665 or Diane Skelley at 952-8732467.

Belle Plaine Family Hosting Farm Walk-n-Talk Tomorrow Seven Story Farm, a Belle Plaine diversified farm owned and operated by Heidi Morlock and family, is hosting a small farm walk-n-talk Thursday, 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. The event includes a discussion and viewing of the farm’s pasture poultry and pasture pork production. It also includes review of the farm’s rotational grazing of cattle and sheep. Participants will also see the small farm’s vegetable garden, its wetland area as well

as the hazelnut plants and hoop house. Pre-registration is not required for the outdoor event which includes some walking. Visitors should dress accordingly. Seven Story Farm is located east of Belle Plaine at 22285 Delaware Avenue/County Road 59. Parking space is limited so car-pooling is encouraged. Rural Advantage and University of Minnesota Extension are sponsoring the event.

Thirty Years Ago This Week

Enrollments at Belle Plaine public schools were down only slightly when students returned to school on Aug. 30. The total opening day attendance was 1,082, which was 14 fewer than 1981-82. The public schools had 904 students in grades K-12, compared to 915 the previous year. Trinity Lutheran School had 99 students in grades 1-8 and Our Lady of the Prairie Catholic School had 79 in grades 1-7. The sprinkling ban that was in effect in Belle Plaine much of the summer was finally over as the town’s second well was repaired. But with over 5 inches of rain that past week, it was doubtful anyone was in need of watering their lawns or trees, but the ban was over. The total repair job was expected to cost Belle Plaine taxpayers $13,000. With both bumps now in good shape, the town had the capacity of pumping more than a million gallons per day. Belle Plaine native Joe Hahn was named to the Minnesota Amateur Baseball Hall of Fame. He was an 18-year veteran ball player for Belle Plaine. Hahn was the second member of the state baseball hall from Belle Plaine. Fred J. Keup was inducted in 1966 just one year before he died. Joe contacted baseball fever as a youngster growing up in Belle Plaine. His urge to play ball continued and he was drafted to play with the town team after his sophomore year in high school. Hahn played third base along with teammates Jerry O’Connell, Clyde Bristol, Fred Keup Sr., Ray Grosser, Alf Albrecht and Clarence Mellgren. He also played college baseball at St. Thomas. Coach Roy Henderson was starting his 18th season as head coach of the Belle Plaine High School football team. He had a won-loss record of 10565, which had him number 38 in wins among active coaches in the state heading into the 1982 season. The Tigers were scheduled to open the season the following week against St. Michael-Albertville. The Belle Plaine Men’s and Women’s Softball Association playoffs concluded that week. In the women’s division, the Lutheran Home defeated the Co-op 6-4 for first place. The men’s division was won by Krant’s Bar, which defeated Jerry’s Bar 7-5.

Henry Weber of Jessenland Township won the Ford car given away at the Arlington fair. Wm. G. Teubert, well-known farmer of Hancock Township, died at a Minneapolis hospital following an operation. He was 57. He had lived in Hancock Township practically all his life. Public schools opened with almost a complete new faculty. On the staff were Supt. S. Gilbertson, S.C. Lucas, Misses Prothers, Lohr, Studnicka, Bacon, Martins Norton, Casey and Kenny. Miss Anna Albrecht, daughter of Mrs. Christ Albrecht of Belle Plaine, and Reuben Christian of North Branch were married. They established their home in Minneapolis.

Passengers to the State Fair crowded the trains, all of which were running in sections. Great improvement was made to the depot hill road. The top of the hill was cut down and the roadway made twice as wide as it was. Fifty tons of hard coal arrived. The price was $9 in the customer’s bin. M. O’Brien engaged in the grain-buying business, going to Boone Iowa, to run an elevator. There was a contest over who would bring in the first prairie chickens. Frank Hally and Jake Krekelberg won as they got theirs at 4 a.m. of the opening day. E.E. Chamberlain and R.J. Henderson were close seconds.

Letter to the Editor Letter to the Editor, Dear Editor, The Minnesota Dental Association and the Minnesota Dental Foundation recently hosted its first Mission of Mercy event in Mankato, resulting in over 2,000 patient visits. I was proud to be a member of the task force and planning committee for this event and along with five of my staff members to be one of 1,367 volunteers who helped provide $1.3 million in free dental treatment on August 17 and 18. The Verizon Wireless Center in Mankato was transformed into a massive temporary dental clinic where dental professionals from across the state, along with lay community and corporate volunteers, worked tirelessly for two days to deliver free dental care to patients who face insurmountable barriers to dental care. The clinic focused on providing immediate care to patients with dental pain and infection, resulting in 1,489 fillings, 1,307 extractions, and 111 partial dentures, along with hundreds of cleanings, sealants, and fluoride treatments. The weekend was filled with remarkable examples of pa-

tients who have difficulty obtaining dental care on a daily basis, so who stood in line for hours to receive the free treatment. My staff and I had the pleasure of serving and speaking with so many wonderful people over the course of the weekend, and were greatly impressed by the commitment and optimism of the volunteers who all worked together with flexibility and compassion. While I am pleased to have been part of this extraordinary effort by so many generous volunteers, charity care is not a long-term solution to the access to care problem in our state. I urge lawmakers to work on bi-partisan solutions that will reduce the barriers to dental care faced by this underserved population. Sincerely, Tasha Strait, DDS Belle Plaine

School Board OKs 2005 Bond Refinancing Plan Refinancing Will Save Taxpayers $2 Million

Homeowners aren’t the only ones taking advantage of low interest rates these days. Monday night, the Belle Plaine School Board approved a refinancing plan expected to save the school district and taxpayers about $2 million over 10 years. Seven years ago, the School District sold approximately $33.1 million in voter-approved general obligation bonds to fund the construction of Oak Crest Elementary School and improvements to Belle Plaine Junior-Senior High School. The district agreed to pay the 4.68 percent interest rate. But since then, interest rates have dropped, presenting the

school district with an opportunity to refinance the bonds for approximately 2.4 percent. The school district is planning to issue bonds refunding the remaining $27.07 million. Springsted will track interest rates and keep the district informed on changes. State law requires the district planning to refinance bonds must experience a 3 percent reduction in the amount they spend on paying off the bonds. The current estimate is the district will save about 6 percent on the approximately $3 million it spends annually repaying the 2005 bonds. “In layman’s terms, it’s like a person refinancing their mortgage,� said Superintendent Kelly Smith. With the expected 2.4 percent interest rate, the district expects to save about $200,000 in annual bond payments between 2015 and 2026. After meeting with Don Lifto,

Austin

St. Thomas

a senior vice president from Springsted, the board approved moving forward with the sale. Providing interest rates remain favorable, the sale will take place just before the school board’s Sept. 24 meeting. Springsted will keep the district informed on changes in interest rates. “Assuming everything looks good, we’ll charge ahead to the finish line and get those bonds sold,� he said. “Sounds like a no-brainer,� said Director Matt Bigaouette. In other action at the Aug. 27 meeting, the Belle Plaine School Board: n Paid bills totaling $1,007,247.35. n Approved revised student handbooks for the 2012-13 school year. Among the changes are clarified regulations on student use of cell phones at Chatfield Elementary School. n Approved a cooperative agreement allowing a student at Cologne Academy participate in junior high activities. n Approved student enrollment agreements for five elementary students -- three leaving the district and two coming to school in Belle Plaine.

Meekers’ Historical House (continued from page 1)

Superintendent’s Update

1998. The late-Dr. Wallace Olhow practiced there in the mid1950s through early-1960s. The late-Dr. Don Schneider practiced in the 1960s through the late-1980s. After Schneider, Dr. A. J. Riley practiced in the building until the early-1990s. A jeweler named Kahle owned the building in the 1940s into the ‘50s. “There aren’t many things that have been the same thing for this long,” Todd Meeker said. The Meekers spent the weekend looking for signage beneath the siding indicating the building once served as a blacksmith’s shop. If found and in a presentable state, they plan to hang it in the new office. They found signage, but for a farm implement business. The owner cut the sign to allow for an air conditioner. They also plan to incorporate elements of the house, some pillars from the front porch, and office in the new design. They have photos of the building indicating that in the early1900s, the building served as a bicycle repair shop. The photos, taken from approximately the same angle, indicate city-supplied water and a fire hydrant, arrived around 1907. They started considering the future of the practice and the building about five years ago. The lot doesn’t permit expansion of the building and regulations requiring access for the disabled would force them to put in a ramp inside the building. They considered two plans for remodeling the existing house. But renovating the existing structure, Todd said, would just not be cost effective. The new office will cost them $350,000. “This is probably our fifth rendition,” Todd Meeker said.

By Dr. Kelly Smith

At the school board meeting on Monday evening, I shared news with the school board that the Belle Plaine School District had received word that we had been recognized as a recipient of a 2012 School Finance Award. The award certificate states that the award is presented “In recognition of performance in financial management and timely submission of UFARS (school financial data system) data and audited financial statements for FY11. In addition, in a letter of recognition from Education Commissioner Brenda Cassellius she stated that, “The award recognizes districts for timely submission of FY2011 Uniform Financial Accounting and Reporting Standards (UFARS) data and annual financial statement, as required by Minnesota Statutes, as well as for having positive fund balances, and having no variances between amounts on MDE budget application systems and expenditures on UFARS.” This is the second consecutive year that our district has been recognized for this achievement and speaks to the financial stability and efficiency that the district has operated within. Congratulations to Business Manager Chuck Keller, payroll clerk Amy Franck and accounts payable clerk Kris Davis for their outstanding work that made this award possible! The school board also took action to approve moving forward with refunding our bonds from the 2005 bond sale for the Oak Crest and the JH-SH school building projects. Refunding bonds is a similar process to refinancing a home mortgage. Interest rates for bonds are at all time lows at this time and our financial advisor has indicated that the refunding will save local taxpayers a total of $2 million over the remaining life of the bonds. Savings will be reflected on individual taxpayers tax statements beginning in 2015. A major portion of our school board meeting was a presentation from our food service provider company, Taher, regarding new federal regulations for the school lunch programs. I encourage parents to pick up information about the changes that must be implemented in our school lunch program this fall at the open house events at our schools this week. We will also post information on our district website in an effort to get this information out to as many people as possible. Some of the changes for the 2012-13 school year are: 1) Students will be offered both fruits and vegetables every day of the week, doubling the amount currently offered. 2) Each student must have at least ½ cup fruit and/or vegetable on their tray as part of the meal. 3) At least half of the grains offered will be whole grain-rich. 4) Minimum and maximum calorie levels are specified depending on the age of the student. The new age groupings are grades K-5, 6-8, and 9-12. Some of the changes may cause some consternation and confusion as we begin the new school year. I encourage all parents to become as familiar as possible with the new regulations. Please know that the school district will be working in cooperation with Taher to present the highest quality meal possible while adhering to the new regulations. We will make every effort to evaluate and adjust our offerings as we move forward into the school year. Please remember Open House events this week beginning with Pop Bottle 7th grade students and new 8th grade students on Wednesday Bombs Reported at 5:30 p.m. at the JH-SH. On Thursday, Chatfield Elementary will have their open house from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. and Oak Crest in Jordan will host students and families from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. Let’s The Jordan Police Department have a great school year everyone! has received at least three recent As always, if you have any questions about school matters, reports of “pop bottle bombs” be- please feel free to call me at 873-2400 or check our website at ing thrown onto residents lawns. www.belleplaine.k12.mn.us. Go Tigers! A pop bottle bomb, also referred to as a “Works Bomb,” a “Drano Bomb” or a “MacGyver Bomb,” explodes when drain cleaner and aluminum foil are mixed together in a pop bottle or similar type of bottle or container and then shaken. This causes a chemical reaction that builds up pressure until the bottle detonates. Jordan Police Chief Bob Malz states that the liquid in the bottle is actually boiling at the time of explosion. There is enough force to sever fingers and to cause second-degree burns. The liquid inside the bottle is drain cleaner so not only are the fumes toxic, but the boiling drain cleaner can cause blindness. Malz cautions that there is a chance that an unexploded bottle may go off if picked up. Residents should notify police if they find any suspicious bottle containing liquid on their property. He states that in the past there have also been a number of incidents reported where bottle bombs have been detonated in mail boxes, especially in rural areas.

Scott County Tightens Justice Center Security Heading to court or meetings in the Scott County Justice Center will take a little longer to reach now that the Scott County Board approved security improvements for the building west of the courthouse. Once installed later this fall, the new metal detector will scan visitors to the justice center for potential weapons. The new equipment includes a baggage X-ray machine, additional security cameras strategically placed throughout the justice center and push-bar door alarms. The equipment will be purchased from Rapiscan Systems and will cost $75,500 including optional software an additional training. “It’s too bad we have to spend the money on this, but it’s the world we live in. We have to keep people safe in the building,” said Commissioner Joe Wagner.

Commissioners discussed the need for beefed-up security this spring after a courthouse shooting in Cook County, Minn. Scott County staff noted the high-tension family court issues as well as gang and drug cases heard in the justice center. Two years ago, a fight in the justice center involving led to a shooting in Shakopee. Other new improvements include easy drop-down metal windows for staff to protect themselves in case of an altercation and thick windows where people must hand documents through an opening. Carver and Scott counties are the only metro area counties currently without metal detectors in their respective courts buildings. Both use portable metal scanners for high-visibility cases. The county sheriff, attorney and judges have been promoting security improvements for many months.

Team Tigertown as a whole hit .283 this year, an improvement from last year’s .274 average. Tiger pitching was once again on top of its game for most of the year, with four different pitchers making double-digit appearances – Larson, Lawson, Shane Hofmann, and Zac Dahlke. Lawson led the team in wins with six, and posted a career-low ERA at 1.93. Larson posted a near-perfect ERA (0.32) on the year, as he only gave up one earned run over 28 1/3 innings pitched. Veteran Shane Hofmann posted the most innings (73) and starts (11) for the Tigers this year. As a team, Tigertown posted an ERA slightly higher than last year, going from 2.85 to 2.90. However, the Tigers were without ace Adam Johnson (new team) and veteran Rob Wagener (injured), who accounted

for 129 innings last year and posted a combined ERA under 1.00. So with that said, the increase in ERA seems more like a decrease due to the amount of pitching that was lost. There are a couple of games/ plays that come to mind for the highlight of the year. The biggest highlight of the year may be Jeff Miller’s go-ahead home run in the Tigertown Classic against the Marshall A’s. With the score tied in the top of the eighth (extra innings, per the tournament format), Miller hit a ball to deep right field, but most people in the stands didn’t know if he had it in him still to put it out of the park. It seemed like time stood still as the ball kept rising, and the crowd and dugout erupted as the ball went over the fence for a three-run home run. Another highlight within the Tigertown Classic was that the Tigers took home the consolation championship. After losing to Union Hill (state tournament team), they went on to beat Class ‘B’ Marshall and a state tournament team in Lamberton.

Belle Plaine Off to Busy Start

H.S. Football

Tigers Host New Ulm Thursday by Dan Ruud The Belle Plaine High School football team will open the 2012 season 7 p.m. this Thursday at home against New Ulm, a team the Tigers defeated 1913 in last year’s opener at New Ulm. Belle Plaine, which dropped it next two games after that win, reeled off six straight victories, including a 20-10 victory over St. Peter in the first round of the section tournament. The Tigers lost 50-33 at Minneapolis Washburn in the second round. Belle Plaine will be without 22 players who graduated from the 2011 squad. Among them were all-conference recipients Michael Kroells (offensive lineman and linebacker), Billy Boecker (offensive lineman and defensive end), Trevor Latzke (offensive and defensive lineman) and Shane Poppler (tight end and linebacker). Luke Schmidt and Austen Bahr, who were all-conference honorable mention, also graduated. The lone all-MRC player from last year returning this season is junior Gavin Dauwalter, who is a tight end and defensive end. Joining Dauwalter as returning offensive starters from last season’s 7-3 squad are seniors Jayden Howie (quarterback), Jordan Johnson (running back) and Nick Eliason (wide receiver and cornerback). This year’s captains are Dau-

walter, Howie, seniors Brandon Boateng and Nathan Phillips, and junior Derek Dahlke, the latter of whom is expected to start at cornerback and perhaps on offense after he recovers from a baseball injury. He will not play Thursday. Although the complete starting line-up for Thursday’s game was not yet complete prior to Tuesday’s press time, head coach Justin Johnston, who is in his eighth season at the helm of the Tigers, said some of the leading candidates are offensive linemen Jake Nowak (junior), Blayne Prochaska (junior), Kyle O’Brien (senior) and Josh Spellman (junior); fullback Zach Juaire (senior) and wide receiver Chase Emmers (junior). Among those expected to start defensively are Dauwalter (end), Phillips (tackle), Boateng (tackle), senior Luke Siegle (end), junior Zach Bahr (outside linebacker), junior Mitch Nelson (middle linebacker), sophomore Ben Stier (outside linebacker), freshman Luke Narveson (cornerback) and junior Cameron Lark (cornerback). Johnston on Monday said there are still too many uncertainties to comment any further on potential starters and playing time. “Our team goal is to be competitive on every play, which

will lead to wins and ultimately put us in position to challenge for the conference and section (titles),” said Johnston, adding that his team’s strength at this time appears to be speed and size in the lines. Staying healthy and limited depth at key positions are among the concerns. Johnston said Tri-City United and Watertown-Mayer look to be among the MRC’s most improved teams as both are “returning a lot of starters.” In fact, Tri-City United (formerly Montgomery-Lonsdale) has the benefit of having the normally very competitive Le Center High School football program added to its team this year. The Tigers will be Tri-City United’s first MRC opponent when the two teams collide in the conference opener next Friday (Sept. 7) in Belle Plaine. Johnston said Fairmont and Blue Earth Area look to be among the top teams in the section. 2012 BPHS Football Schedule Aug. 30 vs. New Ulm Sept. 7 vs. Tri-City United Sept. 14 at Watertown-Mayer Sept. 21 vs. Sibley East Sept. 28 at Jordan Oct. 5 vs. Mayer Lutheran Oct. 12 at LS-H Oct. 17 at NYA Oct. 23 Start Section Tourney Nov. 9 Start State Tourney

The Belle Plaine High School tennis team had a busy first two days of its schedule last week, splitting four matches. The Tigers were scheduled to travel to Blue Earth Area for some more nonconference action on Monday, results of which were not available prior to Tuesday’s press time. The Tigers opened at home Thursday against Chaska, losing 4-3. Belle Plaine’s wins were turned in by Ashley Morrison at No. 1 singles (6-1, 61), Lindsay Vennie at No. 3 singles (6-4, 2-6, 7-5) and Ireland Lambrecht at No. 4 singles (6-3, 6-2). The Hawks won all three doubles matches and No. 2 singles. Farmington Invite The Tigers won two of three matches at Friday’s Farmington Invitational, defeating host Farmington 4-3 and New Life Academy 7-0 and losing to Cannon Falls 4-3. Lambrecht, an eighth-grader, won a first-place medal at No. 4 singles by winning all three of her matches. Included were 5-0, 5-4 over Farmington, 5-2, 5-2 against Cannon Falls and 51, 5-1 against New Life Academy. Also going 3-0 for Belle Plaine was the No. 2 doubles team of Sophie Brazil and Jamie Read as they defeated Farmington 5-1, 5-1, Cannon Falls 5-1, 54 and New Life Academy 5-0, 5-0. Winning two of their three matches at Farmington were Morrison at No. 1 singles, Kate Savage at No. 3 singles and the No. 3 doubles team of Kaisa Hallgren and Meghan Gavin. Hallgren and Gavin were one point away from losing their match against Farmington before rallying to win in two tiebreakers 2-5, 5-4, 5-4. Also winning their matches against New Life Academy were Vennie at No. 2 singles, Allison Stolee and Jane Schneider at No. 1 doubles and Katelyn Zurn and Sam Gregory at No. 4 doubles.

The Tigers’ Jamie Read reached high to return a shot during Thursday’s match against Chaska in Belle Plaine.

H.S. Cross Country

Tigers Race Into Season The Belle Plaine High School boys’ and girls’ cross country teams held their final tune-up for the upcoming season with a scrimmage against other Minnesota River Conference teams Monday at Ney Nature Center in Henderson. No team scores or official times were recorded. Both the boys’ and girls’ teams were scheduled to officially open the season at a meet at Mankato East Tuesday after this edition of the Herald went to press. Next up is a meet on Sept. 6 at the Montgomery National Golf Course. Complete 2012 varsity rosters were not yet finalized before Tuesday’s press time. Girls’ Returnees Leading the cast of this year’s returning girl runners is sophomore Janessa Meuleners, last year’s Minnesota River Conference individual medalist and three-time state-qualifier. Meuleners placed second at the 2010 conference meet. She had her highest finish in a state meet

last season, placing 13th among 156 runners. Also back for Belle Plaine this season is sophomore Emilyn Siemon, who gained all-conference status in 2011 by placing seventh in the conference meet. Other letterwinners back for Belle Plaine are sophomore Cheyenne Westin, who was all-conference honorable mention, freshman Alissa Schultz, senior Kelly Morrison, senior Kiley Hallgren, senior McKayla Siemon and senior Mariah Walsh. The Tigers placed second as a team at the 2011 MRC Meet, which was won by WatertownMayer. Boys’ Returnees Like the Belle Plaine girls, the Tiger boys finished second at last year’s MRC Meet, which was won by Mayer Lutheran. The Tigers graduated most of its top runners from last season, including Phil Dvorak, who placed second at the conference meet behind Mayer Lutheran’s

Belle Plaine’s Jane Schneider returned a shot from just in front of the net during Thursday’s Alex Fredrickson. match against Chaska in Belle Plaine. Leading this year’s returnees is senior Jacob Schaffer, who earned all-conference status last season by placing 10th at the MRC Meet. Nolan Schroeder, who was honorable mention, is among those who graduated. Some of the other leading candidates to crack the varsity roster this season are seniors Mitch Walsh and Mitchell Farmer-Lies, and juniors Kris Corl, Tony Dvorak and Zander Stier. 2012 BPHS Boys’ and Girls’ Cross Country Schedule Aug. 28 at Mankato East Sept. 6 at Mont.

Gerres-Overline Benefit Sept. 8 Austin Gerres-Overline will be celebrating his fourth birthday soon and to help see to it that he will be around for many more, family, friends and other members of the community are planning a special event on his fourth birthday. Austin, the son of Andrea Gerres and Justin Overline, has been diagnosed with leukemia. To help assist with medical and other costs, a fund-raising event, partnering with Thrivent Financial for Lutherans, will take place on Sept. 8 from 3-7 p.m. at Belle Plaine High School. It will include a hog roast and silent and live auctions, etc. Prior to Austin’s beneďŹ t, there will be a rafe ticket drawing at Valley View Golf Course from tickets sold during German Days. From Andrea Gerres Austin was diagnosed with a form of cancer called Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (A.L.L) on Feb. 8 at the age of 3 1/2. How did Justin and I ďŹ nd out? Well, around Christmas time Austin had the stomach u for a few days, which seemed to hit our whole family. Then the following weekend he had temps ranging from 101 to 103 that lasted for a few days. The following weekend he had diarrhea for about four days. And ďŹ nally, another weekend with temps again ranging from 101 to 103. We knew something wasn’t right. We looked at other unusual signs that didn’t seem normal. Austin had consistently complained of his legs being tired. He would stop walking after taking a few steps, crying for someone to hold him. He did this off and on for weeks. Day-care and myself started to notice Austin was looking super pale with dark spots under his eyes. On Feb. 7, we went to our primary family doctor and nothing about Austin’s blood counts or his body looked good. Almost all his blood counts were half of what a normal person should have and his spleen was so enlarged that it was taking over his whole stomach. We were sent to Children’s

Austin Gerres-Overline, pictured in front of his father Justin Overline, was diagnosed with leukemia on Feb. 8. Also pictured is Austin’s little brother Jaxson Overline and mother Andrea Gerres. Hospital in Minneapolis the next morning and something every parent hopes to never hear say was said – “Austin has leukemia.� The type of cancer Austin has is very common for young kids and is 85 percent treatable/curable. Based on all of Austin’s tests, he’s about 90 percent treatable/curable. The biggest downside is Austin has to endure chemotherapy treatment over the next 3 1/2 years. This type of cancer hides in your body and if chemo is not continued for a long period of time, the cancer can come back much harder. So far, Austin has endured bone marrow biopsy’s, lots of spinal taps where chemo is injected into his spine, blood and platelet transfusions, etc. He also has lost all his hair and has to wear leg braces due to some of the side effects of the chemo. Right now, Austin is doing well. We only take one day at a time since we never know how Austin is going to feel each morning he wakes up. Some days he feels very sick, has

headaches and pains all over his body, while other days he feels great. The scariest thing for Austin is making sure he stays healthy since his immune system is very low. Any colds, infections or other illnesses Austin may catch are very hard for his body to ďŹ ght off. We basically live our life on where we go and what we do around his blood counts. It’s scary to not know the future and what each day holds for him. Austin does know what’s wrong with him from a child’s perspective. He knows his blood is very sick and even though he may not always feel sick, he is. Austin knows he receives icky medicine and always gets poked into his chest because the doctors are killing all the bad guys in his blood. He knows that none of his friends have icky blood and that he’s the only one. He knows that everyone is helping him ďŹ ght his icky blood every single day!

Pioneer Power

The 39th annual Le Sueur County Pioneer Power Show took place with mostly favorable weather conditions this past weekend, generating some big crowds. Numerous demonstrations took place all three days. Among them was Mark Klammer (right) of Mankato making straw brooms. Pictured below is blacksmith Wyatt Bienfang of Le Sueur slaving over a hot ďŹ re on a warm day (Friday) in the blacksmith shop. The festival featured many other working demonstrations of various old-time practices, including plowing and threshing. There was also the daily parade of antique tractors and other old-time machinery and equipment. Next year’s show is scheduled for Aug. 23-25.
