April in February Belle Plaine and the rest of the Twin Cities region experienced several days of record-breaking February warmth with highs in the 50s and even some 60s this past week. But all that is about to come to an end. As of Tuesday, weather models indicated that winter weather appears to be heading our way as temperatures fall to seasonal averages, which could be accompanied by a significant snow event in the Twin Cities and elsewhere in southern Minnesota late this week. Pictured above are kids taking advantage of this past weekend’s warmth at Heritage Square Park in Belle Plaine.

Belle Plaine FFA Alive & Growing

Additional Teacher Preparing Students to Thrive In the shop in the northwest corner of Belle Plaine JuniorSenior High School, Paige Lemke helped a group of students rebuild small engines. She wasn’t about to tell the students how the job should be done. Lemke let them learn through trial, err and adjustment. That’s how she learned when she was a FFA student at Hutchinson High School. Lemke’s not your older brother’s FFA instructor. She’s bringing new life and a new perspective to the BPHS FFA, an already-popular program that continues to grow, said Bruce Mathiowetz, the school’s lead FFA instructor. Lemke, a graduate of the Ridgewater Community College and the University of Minnesota, will be among the FFA members celebrating FFA Week at the school Feb. 20-26. The BPHS program has 47 students in it, plus recent alums. That’s a slight increase over the past two years. Statewide, FFA has about 11,000 and around 650,000 members nationally. Lemke joined FFA when she was a freshman at Hutchinson High School in 2008. Her family grew produce on her grandparents’ hobby farm. Lemke was impressed by her teacher’s willingness to let her try anything. “I didn’t really know what it (FFA) was about,” Lemke said. “As soon as I learned, I wanted to be a part of it.” She hadn’t planned to pursue a degree in education while in high school. She had no interest in agricultural education when graduating from Hutchinson in 2011. Her plans included culinary school. “I love to bake,” she said. Lemke’s FFA instructor,

Lavyne Rada, encouraged her to consider a career path that included teaching. Rada, who is now the state FFA leadership coordinator, saw potential in Lemke. She recalls her leading a FFA safety program for elementary-schoolers and an agricultural program for nonFFA students. Today in Belle Plaine, she teaches junior and senior high students. “Everything she did, she did with a lot of passion,” Rada said. The beauty of teaching FFA in Belle Plaine is the variety, Lemke said. Last week, she led a group of students during an exercise tearing down, cleaning and then rebuilding small engines. Her schedule includes classes in agricultural technologies, agricultural food and natural resources, an agricultural exploration class, and a leadership class where students learn in-depth information about FFA. “It makes it easier to go through the day. There’s always something different happening,” Lemke said. “I want students to understand that agricultural touches almost every part of their lives.” Mathiowetz said the addition of a second ag. educator has allowed for greater supervision and flexibility when working with FFA students. With the departure of Joe Deutsch, Mathiowetz’s schedule has been broadened to include construction classes. Lemke’s arrival has allowed the addition of a food science class. “We haven’t been able to

do food science in five or six years,” he said. Mathiowetz said the job market for students in agricultural is wide open. “We need every student, all ability levels,” he said. “There is a job for them.” Belle Plaine FFA students will be busy this week. Monday, they went to Feed My Starving Children for a community service project. Tuesday, they were at Oak Crest teaching fourth-graders about fruits and vegetables. Today (Wednesday,

by Dan Ruud The roller-coaster ride that is the cross removal issue at Veterans Memorial Park took a few more dips, climbs and turns in the days leading to Tuesday night’s Belle Plaine City Council meeting. The Defend Veterans Park group, via Facebook, had expressed displeasure with the changes the Belle Plaine City Council was proposing to make to the limited public forum resolution, final approval of which was expected to be voted on Tuesday night after this edition of the Herald went to press. Last week, Andy Parrish, a spokesperson for the Defend Veterans Park group, posted: VERY DISAPPOINTED IN THE CITY!!: I have reviewed their proposed policy. It is a total joke and worse than a Nicolas Cage movie. It is written so we reject it and they can say they “tried”. Their Policy allows 18 monuments rather than the 5 we proposed. They are approved on a first come first serve basis with ZERO preference given to YOU the residents of Belle Plaine. Finally, the display must have liability coverage of $1,000,000 which coverage must list the City as an additional insured. $1,000,000 is more insurance than your average house has, more than your average life insurance policy, and an amount the Vets Club and your average individual resident can’t sustain. However, a large out-of-state group certainly could pay for that. I am hopeful that someone on the council will amend these items

and then pass it as amended to more accurately reflect our original proposal. - Very disappointing, but we are not giving up. If passed as written Joe’s memorial won’t go back up. However, Parrish posted this week that: GREAT PHONE CALL WITH MAYOR CHRIS MEYER: I can’t divulge the details of the conversation between him and me, but I can tell you after our conversation, I am confident we will leave Tuesday night extremely pleased! PLEASE: Attend the meeting at the Veterans Club at 5:30 pm tomorrow night (Tuesday). I will explain what is happening there, and then please attend the city council meeting at 6:30 pm to show your support. We are almost there!

Mayor Responds

When asked what Parrish meant by “we are almost there,” Meyer provided the Herald with the following written statement this past Tuesday morning: “I had a very open conversation with Andy regarding the pending policy and also some of the language changes that will be reviewed by the legal counsel that would make the veterans more at ease with the policy. “I also had a few things in the policy that I needed some clarification and also possibly changed,” Meyer continued. “I have forwarded this information onto the city administrator as well as Bob Vose the city attorney for comment. I also requested that any of these proposed changes be presented in a form at the meeting tonight (Tuesday) that could be voted on by the council for action. “I am sure there will be more

developments as the day plays out but I remain confident that at the end of the meeting tonight all parties will be satisfied.” Meanwhile, the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF), which demanded that the cross be removed from city property (Veterans Park) in the first place, expressed concern of its own over recent developments. In a letter from FFRF Staff Attorney Rebecca Markert to Belle Plaine City Attorney Bob Vose dated Feb. 16, it states in the first sentence that: “In light of the city of Belle Plaine’s decision to open a ‘limited public forum’ in its Veterans Park, our national organization, which works to protect the constitutional principle of separation from state and church, is considering its legal options including litigation in this matter.” Before learning that the proposed limited public forum had grown from space for five monuments to space for 18 monuments, Parrish stated that four Belle Plaine residents had submitted plans for four monuments, which along with the current monument (with cross reattached) would account for the five monuments in Veterans Park. Parrish said each memorial would have the logo from each branch of the military that would surround the present memorial, which would be made of the same steel and color. On the non-logo side of the monument a “size appropriate” plaque would read: Dedicated to the soldiers, sailors, airmen, and marines—religious, agnostic, and atheist— who served our Nation as one and as brothers.

Scott West Headed Back to St. Paul The Scott West wrestling team qualified for the Minnesota State High School Class 2A Team Wrestling Tournament for the fourth year in a row with victories over Tri-City United on Thursday night, and then New Prague and Hutchinson in Saturday’s Section 2AA Final Four Championships at a jampacked and noisy Jordan High School gym (see details under “Section 2AA Tournament Recap” on page 13. Scott West, 19-0 on the season, is returning to the state team

tournament for the 17th time in its 27-year history. The entire team tournament will take place throughout the day next Thursday (March 2) at Xcel Energy Center in downtown St. Paul. Scott West, a combination of wrestlers from Belle Plaine and Jordan high schools, received the tournament’s No. 3 seed and will square off against unseeded Totino-Grace in the quarterfinals. Kasson-Mantorville is the top seed and Simley is No. 2. Foley is No. 4.

The top five teams have been seeded 1 through 5. Perham received the fifth seed and the other three teams randomly drew to determine which of the top three-seeded teams they will face in the quarterfinals. Those match ups and the team tournament schedule can be found at the end of this article. Defending state Class 2A champion Kasson-Mantorville finished undefeated last season

Dungey still leads the points standings as the series heads to Atlanta for round eight of the 17-race series, with Musquin now 16 points back. Tomac took a sizable five-point chunk out of his deficit behind Dungey and now sits 24 points back with nine races left to run. Dungey, the son of Troy and Michelle Dungey of Belle Plaine, is married to Lindsay (Siegle) Dungey, a 2009 graduate of Belle Plaine High School.

available to students and teachers via apps. and/or Web sites -- ebook versions of text, Lexia, RAZ kids, IXL, Storia, and Spelling City to name a few, said Margot Hansen, the districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s director of curriculum and assessment. Many teachers are using Schoology as their platform for accessing other curricular resources, giving assessments, providing instant feedback, and submitting assignments. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are very impressed with the commitment and progress teachers have made in implementing tech. to impact student learning and teacher instruction,â&#x20AC;? Hansen said. The district will likely discuss its future use of technology with parents at the end of the school year, possibly via a survey, said Giesen.

Back to Apple?

The Belle Plaine School District is in the third year of a four-year lease with Apple for iPad minis. The districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s technology committee -- a collection of staff, administrators and board members â&#x20AC;&#x201C; recently reviewed result of a survey of staffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s opinion on technology. Laager told the board results from a survey indicate about seven of 10 teachers favor continuing to use the iPads. The other most likely option would be Chromebooks. The district knows one of the weaknesses of the iPads is the lack of a keyboard. The district will consider purchasing some keyboards should the district consider continued use of iPads. Giesen said the technology

committee is already considering which device it will use moving forward. He said the next technology contract could be a blend of iPads and Chromebooks. The committee wants to invest in the technology that will provide the district and its students the best long-term educational value, Giesen said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These are not light expenses,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These are heavy expenses.â&#x20AC;? The current lease costs the district $266,613 a year. The district budgets about $135,000 a year for new computers and existing software licenses such as our student management system and classroom programs, said Chuck Keller, the school districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s business manager. That amount does not include the cost of leasing the iPads. Keller expects the district will again lease technology after the current lease expires.

Superintendent Eval.

The school board began the Feb. 13 workshop with a closeddoor evaluation of Laagerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s performance since he was hired in the fall of 2015. Director Dan Gardner said Laager is doing an excellent job leading the staff and running the district on a day-to-day basis. Laager was evaluated on operations, ďŹ nance, curriculum & instruction, his presence in the buildings, and instructional review. The board will be doing another formative review in April and will put out a full report/comment when we do the summative report in June or July, Gardner said.

Thirty Years Ago This Week

The Belle Plaine Lutheran Home commissioned a market study of retirement housing to determine the need in the Belle Plaine area for a living facility for people not yet ready for a nursing home but whose home has become too much for them to handle. Except for increases in vehicle theft, DUIs and trafďŹ c violations, 1986 was not much different than the year before, according to Belle Plaine Police Chief Steve Rost. The department, consisting of Rost and three full-time ofďŹ cers, answered 2003 calls in 1986, 72 more than in 1985. There were 12 cases of motor vehicle theft and 77 DUIs in Belle Plaine in 1986. Dennis and Dan Neisen of Belle Plaine and Robert Neisen of New Prague purchased the Gaylord municipal liquor store. Dennis Neisen planned to manage the Gaylord business when the brothers assumed ownership on March 2. The Neisens also owned the Red Door Bar in Belle Plaine and Neisensâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Bar in New Prague. The Belle Plaine community would be observing the 100th celebration of World Day of Prayer on Friday, March 6. Seven area churches planned to participate in the celebration, which would take place at St. Johnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lutheran Church. The Ancient Order of Hibernians would sponsor an evening of entertainment on Saturday, Feb. 28 at the Belle Plaine Vets Club, where they were planning for their upcoming St. Patrickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s celebration in town. Over 1,000 people attended the open house for the new Scott County Highway Department Central Shop building. Sheral Kahle of the Belle Plaine High School speech team took ďŹ rst place in a ďŹ eld of 60 poetry contestants at Mankato East High School, where over 500 high school students from 27 schools competed in the contest won by Mankato Loyola. The BPHS boysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; basketball team beat arch-rival Jordan 4539 in Jordan. Leading the way for the Tigers were Jeff Johnson with 14 points and Mark Johnson with 13. The BPHS wrestling team took second place in the subregion tournament, losing to Norwood-Young America 3221 in the ďŹ nal. Belle Plaine and NYA would both advance to the eight-team section tournament. The Tiger girlsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; basketball team was set to open District 13A play on Feb. 26 against Le Center at Faribault Bethlehem Academy.

LS-H School District Aims to Reverse Declining Enrollment Students have been leaving the Le Sueur-Henderson School District in alarming numbers in recent years. But the rate of their departures is slowing, according to a report Superintendent Brian Gersich presented to the school board at its Jan. 3 meeting. Since the start of the 2016-17 school year, 34 students have left the Le Sueur-Henderson School District via open enrollment. But 26 students have come to the district since then, the Le Sueur News-Herald recently reported. Each student generates about $7,975 in state aid to the school district. Per student state aid is typically the largest source of revenue districts receive. Overall, 182 students from Le

Sueur-Henderson have left the district via open enrollment, 72 attending Minnesota New Country School in Henderson and 21 to Belle Plaine Schools this year. Forty three students attend Le Sueur-Henderson schools from other school districts. Based on the existing trends, the district expects it could lose another 43 students to open enrollment by the 2022-23 school year. Suggestions to stem the tide of departures and even draw more students to Le Sueur-Henderson include adjustments to curriculum and improvements in advanced placement courses. The districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s science tests scores were among the top of Minnesota River Conference schools.

St. Thomas by: Loni Graham Father James Burns will celebrate our next Mass here at St. Thomas Sunday, March 19at 9 a.m. Father Andrew Stueve celebrates Mass at St. Anne’s in Le Sueur on Saturdays at 5:15 p.m., and Sundays at 8 and 10:30 a.m. Many Roll-in folks partied last Saturday in Henderson. Fourteen-year-old Colton Tupy preformed with his band Sand Creek Connection. Automotive Trivia was anxiously played. The KCHK crew won out of seven groups, for the second year in a row! A few other groups competing were The Arlington Cancer Cruise Crew from Arlington and a car collector group from Henderson. The Jam Session last Sunday was at a jam-packed Roadhaus Event Center. The KCHK crew did an awesome job mingling with the crowd, giving a face to the voices on the radio. Jean O’ Connell Rybak is going to be missed. I remember Jean at the Pexa reunion up at Parkers Prairie about 2003. Her husband Myles or Mike is on that family tree. The fellows were playing polkas on concertinas. Jean kicked off her sandals, grabbed my arm and shouted “Come on, let’s go!”

without much of a choice, away we went with the other dancers, Iaughing and dancing across the park on the grass. Jean loved to have fun. She’d be at the Park Ballroom, Dozinky and Dale Pexa’s barn dances, where she enjoyed a around or two on the floor with 100-yearold Joe. Jean was a straight shooter, told you what was on her mind, in a kind-hearted and caring kind-of-way. She often talked of playing with her siblings, Ruth, Pat, Paul and Mike at her Grandpa and Grandma Boeckmann’s home located south of St. Thomas where Luke and Alice Retka presently make their home. Tiana Moliter, grandaughter of Joseph “Jokey” Halloran and Rita Cashin Halloran, Kathleen’s daughter of Sauk Center is a member of the University of St. Thomas Swim Team, who recently set a school and Minnesota InterAthletic Conference record in the 200 Free Style relay swim. Congratulations to “our” Pat Sullivan, Iris and the late Bobby’s lad, was awarded the highest award earned for sales with Edina Realty: The Chairman Award. Not only did he earn an awesome award, so did several members of his New Prague office.

Benefit Planned for Green Isle Resident

Green Isle is backing up talk of improving the city’s economic development efforts with money. The council voted at its Feb. 14 meeting to back a contract with Sibley County Community Development Program Manager Amy Newsom. The proposed contract is for an average of four hours a week at a cost of $40 per hour. That amount is all-inclusive. It covers salary, benefits, transportation, printing and other administrative costs, said Sibley County Administrator Roxy Traxler. The city will review the contract in the months to come for possible adjustment if needed. The contract will run from March 1 to the end of 2017. The proposed contract still needs county board approval. “We’re just looking to cover our costs. We’re not looking to make any money,” Traxler said. Newsom will help the city with any inquiries from firms interested in relocating to Green Isle or any existing businesses interested in expansion. She will help the city with the Southern Minnesota Initiative Fund (SMIF) grant. She will also help with grant writing and other economic-development related projects.

Arlington Ambulance Service’s need for additional staff is reaching a crisis point. The 60year-old service may soon come to an end, thanks to the dearth of available staff. The service is currently staffed by a dozen emergency medical technicians and two emergency medical responders, first responders, the Arlington Enterprise recently reported.

Newsome will serve on the city’s EDA board. She will also help the city with a grant application to help Green Isle create a revolving loan fund to help businesses. She has already assisted the city with an application to the USDA. “Without her, that wouldn’t have gone anywhere,” Panning said of the application. “I think we’ve got a good start here. It is something we haven’t had here in years,” said Councilor Mark Wentzlaff. The $40 per-hour fee is “a lot less” than the fee the city considered earlier this winter for hiring a private-sector firm, said Bert Panning, Green Isle’s clerktreasurer. Councilor Shawn Harms raised a concern, noting the city did not budget for the $6,240 contract with the county in 2017. Other cities in Sibley County have considered a similar contract with Sibley County. Arlington opted for a private sector firm and Gaylord is considering a proposed contract with the county.

First Place The crew from Velvet Touch Catering of New Prague (above) and its entry in the Wizardz Chili Cook-Off came in first place Saturday evening (Feb. 18) at Oak Crest Elementary School. The annual event is a benefit for the Wizardz, a Special Olympics team with athletes from Belle Sunday afternoon (Feb. 19), Henderson native Steve Felix proudly displayed the mounted elk Plaine, Jordan and the surrounding area. Johan’s Sports Bar & Grill’s entry finished second he shot while hunting in Montana last September at a hardware store in Henderson. The elk again. Willie Larson of Arlington again won the People’s Choice Award. (Below) Dawn Halv- will be judged for possible status as a world record for an elk shot with a bow-and-arrow. erson, one of the cook-off’s organizers, handed out samples of one of the 10 entries for judging to the panel of judges that included (right) Belle Plaine Mayor Chris Meyer and Police Chief Tom Stolee.

Henderson Native Proudly Displays His Trophy Elk

by Baylye Anderson After attending a banquet at Caribou Gun Club in Le Sueur Saturday, Feb. 18, Steve Felix had his trophy elk on display at Bender’s True Value in Henderson on Sunday, Feb. 19. Felix is traveling with his elk to St. Louis, Missouri for panel judging which will determine if the elk Felix shot with his bow and arrow last September will set a new world record in archery. The elk is reportedly the largest ever shot in Montana and the fourth largest in North America. Boone and Crockett Club gave the elk a gross score of 447 inches and an official net score of 430 inches. The Pope and Young Club will score it again.

About 450 people came to Henderson to view the elk on Sunday. Felix said that he remembered many of the people from growing up in Henderson. He graduated from Henderson High School in 1984 and he said he usually comes back to town to visit family and friends two or three times a year. Felix has lived in Montana since 1993. He shot the elk on public land in Powder River County. To display his elk, Felix hired a taxidermist to mount it. Felix’s girlfriend, Darla Smarz, said the taxidermist is local and has done other mounts for Felix in the past. She said that he came and stayed with Felix for a week and worked on the mount in Felix’s garage.

“He thought he would be interrupted working on it at his shop,” Smarz said. Smarz estimated that 50-60 hours went into completing the elk shoulder mount. Felix said this is only the second elk shoulder mount, but he has many other animals mounted and on display in his home. “There are no heads in the kitchen or the bedroom,” said Smarz, “But everywhere else you look there is some sort of mount or another.” His father, Warren, his sisters, nieces and nephew at True Value on Sunday, joined Felix. His family as well as many community members congratulated Felix and expressed their pride and awe over the elk.

Section Recap (continued from page 13)

ger position as he powered the Panther wrestler to his back and gained a pin fall call with just one second left in the second period. Gifferson’s pin gave Hutchinson a 6-3 lead, which would be their only lead of the meet as Scott West sophomore Justin Stauffacher answered with a solid 7-4 win over Hutchinson’s Dasin Mateski at 120. The Panther wrestler used a pair of take downs and some solid riding to secure the key match win that tied the team score at 6-6 . Junior Jackson Stauffacher then went right to work in his match at 126 pounds as he gained a take down, cradle and pin fall, all in just 28 seconds over Hutchinson’s Payton Jepsen-Lee. With Scott West leading 12-6, the championship meet moved to the 132-pound class, where Panther sophomore Tyler Shackle did battle against the Tigers’ #6-rated Brock Luthens. Shackle opened up the battle by quickly scoring the opening take down, and although Shackle took a 3-1 lead into the third period, Luthens rallied to take the lead before Shackle scored a late escape to send the match into overtime tied at 4-4. Luthens then won the match 6-4 with a take down. Scott West senior Parker Huss rolled through his match at 138 pounds as he used seven take downs and a set of back points to score a 19-4 technical fall over Hutchinson’s Tate Card. That gave Scott West a 17-9 lead as the meet moved to another important match at 145 pounds, where Hutchinson’s Cody Anderson defeated Jack Fogarty 3-1.

Hutchinson senior Logan Wadsworth was a major decision better than Panther freshman Jace Demmers back in December but on this night at 152 pounds Demmers limited Wadsworth to an 8-5 decision. With the team score now 17-15 in favor of Scott West, Panther sophomore Jon Huss (160) was a flurry of action as he scored three take downs and two sets of back points, all before driving Hutchinson’s Zach Reuber to his back with a half that resulted in the first period pin fall call at 1:40. Huss’ pin gave Scott West a 23-15 team lead. “Jon knew that we were looking for a pin out of him here,” states Ripley. “And to his credit, he did not waste anytime in going out and getting it done.” Getting it done during Section 2AA Team Championship Final Four action is was Scott West senior Deshawn Carter has been all about as he took to the mat against Hutchinson’s Christian Kurth in what would become the match of the night and the one that they are still talking about on The Guillotine Forum. With the score tied at 2-2 late in the third period, Carter grabbed Kurth’s leg while rolling in underneath the Hutchinson wrestler, where he was fighting from his back for a few seconds but somehow managed to get to his knees, turn back into, cross face and get behind Kurth for the 4-2 match-winning take down at the buzzer. The Scott West bench and crowd erupted with a deafening round of noise and celebration. However, with all of the noise and confusion, the Hutchinson coaches challenged the call and the mat officials Spencer Beech and Jeff Schultz conferred at the scorer’s table, and when mat official Beech came back toward the middle of the mat, he held up two fingers confirming the take down and the Carter’s win. “It was an incredible scramble take down by Deshawn and it’s a position that we will put our wrestlers in to start practice at least a couple of times a week,” states Ripley, adding that this was not the first time Carter has produced a dramatic win in team sections. With the dramatic Carter win at 170 still buzzing throughout

the gym, the Hutchinson coaching staff was deliberating on what to do next as the Panthers sent junior Tyler Buesgens to the mat at 182. After a short delay in the action, the Tigers made the decision that they would forfeit to the #1-rated Panther wrestler and that decision gave Scott West its biggest lead of the night at 32-15. With the 17 point lead and three matches to go, it put the visiting Tigers in the difficult position of having to basically pin out to win the meet, and that would not happen as Scott West junior Dylan Aslakson held Josh Filk to a 14-4 major decision. Hutchinson continued to win out from there as #4-rated Tyler Stenzel scored a 5-2 win over sophomore Calvin Menke at 220 and #7 Chandler Kurth brought the meet to a close with a pin of senior Ben Alexander. However, it was too little and too late for Hutchinson as it had to watch the Panthers celebrate their 17th section championship and fourth in a row with a 32-28 win. “You have to give our wrestlers a lot of credit as they knew that there was a big fight coming here today and they responded by wrestling hard and winning that fight,” states Ripley. 2016-17 Scott West Wrestling Dual Results and Remaining Schedule Dec. 1 vs. N Prague W 47-19 Dec. 8 at MKato East Quad vs. Hutch W 30-28 vs. Austin W 66-7 vs. MKato E.

Elko Speedway Looks to Expand Racing, Movie Schedule A plan to increase the number of races held and mesh race nights with movie nights has the Elko New Market City Council looking to revise the planned unit development (PUD) that governs operations of the track. The track is seeking approval to expand its schedule from 70 races to 90. The track also

wants permission to host races and drive-in movies simultaneously, the New Prague Times recently reported. The basis for the simultaneous events is when races are delayed, the track’s management wants to start movies before the races are completed. That would keep the drive-in movies from running too late.

Councilor Josh Berg wanted public comment on the track’s proposal. City Administrator Tom Terry said a public hearing would be held during a planning commission discussion on the proposal. The track’s management will work with the planning commission on both requests.

Chamber Gala Mayor Chris Meyer addressed nearly 50 Belle Plaine area businesspersons at the annual Belle Plaine Chamber of Commerce gala last Wednesday evening (Feb. 15) at Matt Saxe ChevroletBuick. The event offered chamber members the opportunity to catch up with other chamber members while networking over a light dinner. The mayor updated the chamber members on interesting events the chamber and city have addressed, while providing tidbits on Belle Plaine history.

It is up to the individual to decide when to begin receiving Social Security beneďŹ ts. A person can take a reduced beneďŹ t as early as age 62. Or, a former employee can claim a full beneďŹ t at what the Social Security Administration considers to be full retirement age, which, for example, is 66 for anyone born between 1943 and 1954. Otherwise, a person can wait until age 70 for yet a larger beneďŹ t. Bear in mind that, once you elect to receive a reduced beneďŹ t, you remain at that level for the rest of your life (with normal cost-of-living increases). The longer you are apt to live, the more you beneďŹ t from waiting for the larger check. The current generation of retirees is more likely than the last generation to have active retirement years ďŹ lled with a mix of travel, sports, and education. How will you spend your retirement years, and how can you fund those years? Social Security may ďŹ ll only a limited amount of your ďŹ nancial demands.

Section 2AA Tourney Recap After beating Tri-City United 57-9 on Thursday night in Jordan, state Class 2A’s #2-rated and unbeaten Scott West Panthers readied themselves for the big Section 2AA Final Four showdown at Jordan High School on Saturday. This year’s Section 2AA Final Four featured four teams that were all rated in the latest edition of The Guillotine ratings with Scott West at #2, Hutchinson at #7, Waconia at #8 and New Prague at #11. “Our Section 2AA has a longstanding tradition of being one of the deepest and toughest sections in the state regardless of class,” states Scott West cohead coach Darren Ripley. “We stressed all week that there was a big fight coming here on Saturday and that you had better be ready to do just that.” The Final Four began with semifinal action where Scott West defeated New Prague 39-17, while the Hutchinson rallied to beat Waconia 29-28

as Hutchinson senior Chandler Kurth powered Waconia’s Bobby Flemming to his back for a second period pin fall in their match at heavyweight. Kurth’s pin brought the Hutch crowd roaring to their feet and would set up a rematch of last year’s section championship meet in Hutchinson, which was won by Scott West 43-21. “We had to make sure that we did our job and beat New Prague first,” comments coach Ripley. “However, with that said, we certainly had an eye on the wrestling action that was taking place on the far mat between Hutchinson and Waconia and it appeared to be a real barn-burner.” Although the Jordan gymnasium had hosted the 2004 section team championships that ended with a 38-22 Scott West win over Waseca, it had now been turned into a full-scale wrestling pressure-cooker with a more than standing-room crowd attempting to catch its breath and

position itself for the upcoming championship wrestling action between Hutchinson and Scott West. “It was a pretty electric atmosphere for a great night of wrestling,” states Ripley. Scott West freshman lightweight Jacob Hill opened the meet by nailing Hutchinson 106-pounder Tristian Lang that nearly took the Tiger wrestler to his back, but to Lang’s credit he fought it off and trailed just 2-1 after the first period. Lang then tipped Hill to his back in a second period cradle that Hill fought his way through after giving up a three-point near fall. Hill went on to win the match 9-6. “It was a good bounce back match by Jacob and we certainly needed it,” states Ripley. Hutchinson responded in the 113-pound match as Tucker Gifferson put Scott West sophomore Jacob Strack in the dan-

Section Recap

by Dan Ruud The Belle Plaine High School girls’ basketball team defeated Le Sueur-Henderson by at least 30 points for the second time this season with a 74-44 triumph last Tuesday night at the BPHS gym. The Tigers stomped the Giants 66-35 on Jan. 12 in Le Sueur. The Giants finished MRC play 0-12 and are 0-25 overall. Belle Plaine, which finished 2-10 in the Minnesota River Conference, entered last night’s regular-season finale at Breck School in Golden Valley with an overall mark of 5-20. Results of last night’s contest were not available prior to press time. The Tigers will more than likely have to take to the road for the start of the Section 2AA, North Subsection Tournament next Tuesday, brackets for which are scheduled to be released today (Wednesday). Tigers 74, LS-H 44 The Tigers jumped out to a 15-3 lead and led 47-24 at halftime in what was a Valentine’s night rout at the BPHS gym last Tuesday. Paige Narveson poured in 24 points for Belle Plaine, followed closely by Elizabeth Johnson with 20. Also scoring for Belle Plaine and their point totals were Sarah Lenz (8), Lily Vinkemeier (7), Jaylen StruckSchmitz (6), Lauren Johnson (5) and Alexa Lenz (4). Elizabeth Johnson and Sarah Lenz both had seven rebounds, with the former also having 10 assists. Narveson had five steals. Acy Adamzak netted 22 points for LS-H. “We came out ready to play,” said Belle Plaine coach Randy Carlson. “We defended really well early and they didn’t get any easy shots . . . Elizabeth Johnson did a good job of breaking down the defense and getting shots for herself and others. Sarah Lenz was also very good with the ball

and Paige Narveson had a very good overall game. “It was a great way to send out our seniors in their last home game – Alexa Lenz, Ireland Lambrecht, Elizabeth Johnson and Schuyler Sterk. They have been a great class for us and we will really miss them,” Carlson said. 2016-17 BPHS Girls’ Basketball Results and Remaining Schedule Nov. 29 at WEM L 53-49 Dec. 1 at JWP W 64-52 Dec. 2 at C.
