B.P. School Board Preparing to Cut Rate of Spending in 2017-’18 As Contract Talks Near, District Awaits Word on State, Federal Aid

Depending on the level of state aid the Belle Plaine School District receives for the 201718 school year and the cost of contracts with staff, the school board is preparing to curb the growth of its spending. Monday (April 10) during a workshop, the Belle Plaine School Board heard a report on processes for decreasing the growth of spending in its general fund budget by at least $434,305 in 2017-18 – an amount that will return the dis-

trict to the school board’s policy of maintaining 10 percent reserves for its general fund. Making no changes would reduce that fund balance to about 5 percent, Superintendent Ryan Laager told the board. The board will formally consider the course it wants to take for the adjustment process at its April 24 meeting. The level of state aid the district receives will impact the budget adjustment. The district receives $6,067 in basic state aid per student (about $9.74 million overall) and $724 per student (about $1.16 million) in board OK’d excess levy aid. State aid is a significant part of the district’s general fund income of $14.46 million in 2016-17. But about threefourths of what the district spends is on salaries and ben-

efits for staff. Because of the escalations of experience and education of the existing staff, the cost of salaries will increase by $184,000 at the start of the 2017-18 school year. The school board has approved $152,000 in deficit spending this year, less than 1 percent of its general fund. The district is uncertain if federal Title I or Title II aid – almost $490,000 -- will be cut. Schools across Minnesota are awaiting the outcome of the legislative process and the education funding bill. Gov. Mark Dayton is proposing 2 percent increases for the next two years. The House is proposing a 1½ percent increase for 2017-18 The grandchildren of the late Joe Gregory – Emmett Luetmer, Tony O’Brien and Joe Ruehling (above) – returned and fastened the kneeling soldier and cross display during a ceremony at School Board Belle Plaine Veterans Memorial Park Saturday morning. It is the first display to be installed (continued on page 12) in the park’s new limited public forum.

Belle Plaine High School graduate Michael Chabot, with help support from his parents, Verzie (right) and Barry (left), created a larger and more visible shell for the Chaska Valley Family Theater’s presentation of “The Little Mermaid.” Chabot played a sailor, a member of the ensemble and also earned a featured dance part during the play.

B.P.’s Chabot Brings Talents to Chaska Valley Family Theater

He didn’t have a lead part and his soft-spoken approach makes him easy to miss amidst a sizable cast and crew. But Michael Chabot’s array of talents made him an important member of an area theater company’s recent production. Chabot had three parts in the Chaska Valley Family Theater’s presentation of “The Little Mermaid.” The production just finished a successful run Sunday (April 10) at Chanhassen High School. He played a

sailor, a member of the ensemble and also earned a featured dance part during the play. But his contributions to the production were not limited to the stage when the lights shined brightly. Chabot – a 2016 BPHS graduate and the son of Verzie and Barry Chabot – worked with his father to create the seashell where Ursula the Sea Witch imprisoned Aerial’s voice. Chabot used his artistic talents to design a shell that could be seen

throughout the high school’s spacious theater. The original shell the play’s directors planned to use hung on a necklace. It was too small to be easily seen by the audience. The director of the play realized the diminutive size of the

by Dan Ruud After months of ups and downs and lobbying on the part of the Belle Plaine Veterans Club and other members of the community, what has become known simply as “Joe” is back in Veterans Memorial Park. Joe, a soldier with a rifle kneeling next to a cross silhouette, was removed from the park in January. The cross honoring veterans at the park was removed after members of the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF), based in Wisconsin, demanded that the action be taken because the law clearly states that religious symbols are not permitted on government-owned property. Belle Plaine City Attorney Bob Vose had recommended that the cross be removed to avoid potentially costly legal action by the FFRF. Following immense outrage by the public, particularly on social media, the city council eventually reconsidered its stand to have the cross permanently removed, and voted 3-2 to establish a limited public forum area in the park where freedom of expression is more protected. “On behalf of the Belle Plaine Vets Club and the Gregory family, we want to thank you all for the outpouring of support to get what to us is simply a war memorial restored and placed back in Veterans Park where it belongs,” Tricia Burmeister, president of the Belle Plaine VFW Auxiliary, told the crowd of about 50 people in opening remarks at Saturday’s ceremony. “We are humbled by all the support we have received from within the community as well as people from as far away as Afghanistan,” Burmeister continued. “A special thank you goes out to Andy Parish (citizen supporter) and Doug Wardlow (attorney), for without you this would not be happening today.” Burmeister went on to thank a number of other people, ranging from all those who “stood vigilant” at the park this past winter after the cross was removed to William Anderson who donated the large replica of the Joe memorial that now resides atop the Veterans Club entrance downtown. Larry Ruehling, president of the Belle Plaine Veterans Club, was not able to attend Saturday’s ceremony because of work, but said he’s “glad it’s back out there,” albeit not as visible from street level as it

Belle Plaine Junior High Presents ‘Sherlock Holmes’

Performances Next Week in the PAC

Aspiring Belle Plaine seventhand eighth-grade actors and actresses will present “Sherlock Holmes� next week in the Performing Arts Center (PAC) in the District Center building on South Willow Street. The play is a freely adapted version of the classic stage comedy by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and William Gillette. It’s intended to be an entertaining

adaptation of the famed detective story, combining mystery, romance, action, danger and laughter. Alice Faulkner has letters written by a dead girl that will cause grave international problems. Professor Moriarty wants those letters, but so does Holmes. The game’s afoot, but not before the professor’s gang has London in its grip. Only young Holmes understands the true objective the professor has in mind (it’s too sinister to reveal here). He’s willing to put his own life on the line to stop it.

This is a sure-fire, colorful and unusual play guaranteed to have the audience cheering. “Sherlock Holmes� will be presented Friday-Saturday, April 21-22, 7:30 p.m., and Sunday, April 23, 2 p.m. Tickets are $5 each. Tickets for the public will be available beginning Monday, April 24. To purchase tickets, stop at Belle Plaine High School or call Laurie Fogarty in the main office. She can be reached by e-mail at lfogarty@ belleplaine.k12.mn.us or by phone at 873-2403.

Sibley County OKs Area Bridge Replacement, Road Maintenance Thanks to lower-than-expected bids, Sibley County commissioners were able to unanimously approve improvement projects that will replace a timber bridge with concrete box culvert and protect the county’s investment in its roads this summer. At its March 28 meeting, the county board awarded a bid to Landwehr Construction for replacing a timber structure bridge along County Road 6 (Scenic Byway Road). The bridge is about one-third of a mile north of County Road 6’s intersection

with County Road 12 north of Henderson in Jessenland Township. Landwehr Construction’s bid of $249,929.60 was the lowest of the five bids the county received for the project. It was 15 percent below the engineer’s estimate. The timber structure bridge dates back to the early-1960s, said Tim Becker, director of Sibley County Public Works. It serves about 1,000 vehicles a day. The project should begin in early-July. The bridge should be closed up to two weeks, Becker said.

The board also approved a seal coating contract with Astech Corp. of St. Cloud. The contract is for bituminous seal coating of sections of county roads to preserve their lifespan. Astech was one of five companies that bid on the project. The amount of the bids ranged from Astech Corp.’s $608,760.45 to $837,315.52. Astech’s bid was 22 percent below the engineer’s estimate. Astech Corp. has won the county contract three times in the past five to seven years, Becker told commissioners. “They do pretty good work,� he said. Commissioner Bill Pinske of Arlington questioned whether the bids are really a good deal for the county or if engineer’s estimates are set too high. Becker said he sets budgets for projects “middle of the road� rather than “bare bones� to make sure projects are not under-funded. “I guess it’s better than the other way,� Pinske said. County Administrator Roxy Traxler said contractors are bidding competitively to keep their crews busy during the coming season.

BPHS Robotics Team Join Alliance of Final Eight

Thanks to a design that emphasized speed and efficiency, the Belle Plaine Cyber Tigers were among the final 24 of 60 teams competing in the FIRST Robotics regional competition last week at the University of Minnesota’s Mariucci Arena. The Cyber Tigers were selected to join the Cobalt Catalysts of Apple Valley High School as an alliance member for the game, “Steamworks.� The Apple Valley team was one of the final eight teams in the competition. Each of the final eight selected two other teams to teams as alliance members. “They told us were very efficient on the field with our movement and climbing. We were 100 percent on our climbing,� said Jeff Heine, an advisor to the Cyber Tigers. He said the

He has until Friday (April 14) to appeal the city council’s decision, the Montgomery Messenger said. The council went behind closed doors March 30 to discuss the issue regarding its police chief, three days after Schmidt was served notice of the city’s plans to terminate his

Cyber Tigers enjoyed their best showing in the five years they have been participating in the robotics regional competitions. Teams in a “Steamworks� competition attempted to earn points during matches by launching balls into targets (fuel cells into a boiler), collecting gears and delivering them to an airship lift. They could also earn points by climbing aboard the airship manned by a member of each team. The Cyber Tigers arrived at the regional competition aiming to earn points by efficiently delivering gears to the airship and climbing aboard the airship rather than trying to shoot fuel pellets (plastic balls) into a target. Their approach relied on a lightweight robot, one that emphasized speed and mobility rather than bulk, Heine said. But in the final round of competition Saturday afternoon (April 8), the competing teams used larger, heavier and slower robots to block Belle Plaine and its alliance-mates from reaching their targets to deliver gears and

contract. To eschew a void in leadership of the department, the city approved turning control of administrative duties of its police department over to the Le Sueur County Sheriff’s Office. The city will pay the county up to $24,000 for 480 hours of supervisory work. The police department’s ranks include three full-time officers and seven part-timers. As for the reason the city council fired Schmidt, the department’s chief since 2000 and a 25-plus-year member of the Montgomery Police Department, the city provided no specifics on the chief’s termination. The city cited the Minnesota Data Practices Act for its silence. City Administrator Brian Heck indicated there had been an investigation into Schmidt from outside the city. If Schmidt does not appeal the council’s decision, the rationale for his termination should become public, according to Minnesota Newspaper Association Attorney Mark Anfinson.

climb aboard the spaceship. “The final matches were far more aggressive than during the qualifying matches. It’s no different than sacking the other team’s quarterback,� Heine said. “We thought that could be a problem. Going forward, it’s something we’re going to have to be aware of.� Apple Valley selected the Cyber Tigers as an alliance member after Belle Plaine split its first four matches Friday and Saturday morning. Belle Plaine finished the qualifying matches 28th of the 60 teams heading into Saturday afternoon’s finals. The Errors of Eastridge High School and their alliance members, Ravonics Revolution of Olathe High School in Kansas and ProDigi of Lincoln High School in Thief River Falls, Minn. won the competition. All three teams had won previous competitions to earn berths in national-caliber competitions. With their season complete, the Cyber Tigers will work on refining their design, increasing their ranks and fund-raising in the months to come. The team, in cooperation with the other Scott County high schools participating in robotics will be displaying their work at the Scott County Fair this summer to increase awareness and interest in robotics.

BELLE PLAINE HERALD, BELLE PLAINE, MINNESOTA

Doris (nee Hillstrom) Oaks Taylor, 96, passed away on April 8, 2017 in Wayzata. Funeral service 10:30 a.m. Wednesday, April 12 at Roseville Memorial Chapel (2245 N. Hamline Ave, Roseville 651-631-2727) with visitation preceding from 9-10:30 a.m. Interment at Resurrection Cemetery. In lieu of flowers (she was highly allergic to plant pollens) donations requested for Sharing and Caring Hands. Doris Elizabeth Hillstrom was born on June 21, 1920 in Belle Plaine to parents Clara (Townsend) and Harry A Hillstrom. During her early years we know of nine towns the family lived in before settling in St. Paul at age 16. Doris is a graduate of Central High School class of 1939. In 1945 Doris married Edwin H. Oaks Jr. in New Orleans. Together they raised four children moving from Chicago, Vancouver, Minot, Duluth before eventually settling in St. Paul. Doris created a career with the State of MN and later became the first woman tax assessor for Ramsey County. She married Harold Taylor in 1971. Doris’ life is an example of independence, courage, kindness, grace and love. She enjoyed bowling and square dancing...but most of all a good game of bridge. She was known to be an excellent bridge partner. For several years she volunteered with Meals on Wheels in Roseville. She will be greatly missed by her surviving four children, Bud Oaks, Elizabeth Kassekert, Jinna (Ken) Cox and Barbara (Roger) Swenson; 11 grandchildren, Heather (Damon) Graham, Megan Oaks, Danielle (Charlie) Fehring, Kristine Kassekert, Theresa (Stan) Walker, Tony Kassekert, Tom Kassekert, Karen Kassekert, John Kassekert, Roger (Kelly) Swenson and Clair (Joel) Joyes; and last but truly not least her beloved six great-grandchildren, Caitlin Oaks and Jordin Graham, Grizzly and Rocco Steuck, Maxwell and Winston Fehring, Michael and Isabelle Walker, Hadley and Cameron Swenson. Her family is very grateful and wants to acknowledge their thanks to the caring staff of Meridian Manor in Wayzata.

Erma J. Sierk Erma Jane Sierk, 94, of Belle Plaine, formerly of Lake Wilson, passed away peacefully surrounded by her family on Friday, April 7, 2017 at The Lutheran Home in Belle Plaine. A service will be held at The Lutheran Home Chapel in Belle Plaine on Saturday, April 15 at 10 a.m with visitation one hour prior to the service. Pastor Eric Burgdorf will officiate. A light luncheon will follow the service. Burial will follow at Lake Wilson Hillside Cemetery in Lake Wilson at 4:30 p.m. with Pastor Chad Setter officiating. Arrangements are with the Wagner Funeral Home of Jordan. Erma was the daughter of Irvin and Myrtle (Jones) Eichhorn, and was born in Cameron Township in Murray County, Minnesota on November 19, 1922. She grew up on a farm and was active in 4-H. She was especially proud of showing lambs at the South St. Paul Livestock Show. She won many running contests at school and in 4-H. Erma was also a spelling champion. After graduating from Lake Wilson High School at age 16, she attended business college in Minneapolis, acquiring typing and shorthand skills. She worked as a stenographer for the IRS in St. Paul and subsequently in Marshall, Minnesota. On July 20, 1946, Erma married Leon W. Sierk in Pipestone, Minnesota and moved to the Sierk family farm in Murray County. Erma was a stay-at-home mom who cared for whoever came through her door. She was busy, but always found time to attend her daughters’ activities. She and Leon retired from the family farm in 1980, moving to Lake Wilson. She relocated to Jordan in 2010 and most recently resided in The Lutheran Home in Belle Plaine. Always interested and inquisitive, she avidly read newspapers, listened to WCCO radio, and followed the Minnesota Twins baseball team. She was a regular attendant at the Murray County Fair and frequently won prizes for her bouquets of wildflowers and bread. After Leon passed in 2000, she enjoyed caring for and the company of her two Siamese cats and feeding the birds. She was a loving, supportive mother, grandmother and greatgrandmother. She always gave practical advice often with humor and quips. Erma will be forever loved, deeply missed, and never forgotten.

Sentencing Delayed Until May 8

Closure of the legal portion of the prosecution of a Belle Plaine man for the death of his infant son has again been delayed. Joshua Sundblad’s sentencing has been delayed from tomorrow (April 13) until May 8. Scott County Attorney Ron Hocevar said the delay is to allow Michael McDonald, Sundblad’s defense counsel, more time to review Judge Christian Wilton’s ďŹ ndings of fact on guilty verdicts he issued last November. McDonald and prosecutors only recently received the documents March 16. The ďŹ ndings of fact present the rationale for Wilton ďŹ nding Sundblad guilty of two counts of ďŹ rst-degree assault, one count of second-degree manslaughter and one count of third-degree assault. Wilton found Sundblad, who waived his rights to a trial by jury and to a speedy trial, not guilty of ďŹ rst-degree murder and thirddegree assault in the May 2014 death of Carson Scott Bosquez Sundblad. Hocevar said the presumptive

sentence for each count of ďŹ rstdegree assault is 86 months. The presumptive sentence in state sentencing guidelines on the manslaughter conviction is 48 months, Hocevar said. The recommendation on the third-degree assault charge is 366 days. Prosecutors will argue for both an upward departure from state sentencing guidelines and also consecutive sentences. McDonald previously said he plans to argue for a downward departure from the state sentencing guidelines and a non-consecutive sentence. He said the awful nature of the case makes an upward departure unjustiďŹ able. McDonald previously noted Wilton found Sundblad not guilty of ďŹ rst-degree murder as prosecutors claimed he was. McDonald also said Sundblad has not previously been convicted of a crime. Like Hocevar, McDonald declined to identify what he’ll propose. Since Wilton found Sundblad guilty on the assault and manslaughter charges, investigators have been performing a presentencing investigation that will play a role in the sentence Sundblad receives. The investigation looks into the background of Sundblad and the facts of the case. Investigators talked with

well below the city engineer’s $2.2 million estimate, the Chaska Herald recently reported. Businesses along Second Street like Dunn Bros. Coffee aim to remain open during the street reconstruction. The work should begin next month and be completed by September.

Drivers on Highway 41 making their way through downtown Chaska will no doubt note the Second Street reconstruction project this spring and summer. The city council recently accepted a bid from BCM Construction to perform the twoblock street reconstruction project on both sides of Highway 41. Its bid was $1.65 million,

members of the victim’s family and Sundblad before recommending a sentence to Wilton, McDonald previously said. According to the criminal complaint ďŹ led in October of 2014, Belle Plaine police, ďŹ reďŹ ghters and paramedics responded to a report of an unresponsive baby at a house on the 200 block of South Elk Street May 9, 2014 at approximately 5:22 p.m. They found the baby’s skin dark purple and would only lighten in color when oxygen was administered. The child was pronounced dead that night at Minneapolis Children’s Hospital at 10:52 p.m. An autopsy by the Hennepin County Medical Examiner’s ofďŹ ce revealed the baby had several injuries in its head and body. Examiners found a fractured skull as well as evidence of bleeding on the brain. They also found fractures to the front and rear of four ribs. The baby’s left wrist was also fractured. The medical examiner ruled the infant’s death a homicide caused by a brain injury and compromised sleeping position. Sundblad has been in the Scott County Jail since the fall of 2014, unable to pay the bail set just after he was charged with the crimes.

90 Years Ago (1927)

Easter Sunday that year was all that anyone could wish. It was a beautiful spring day. At the meeting of the school board, G.L. Laumann of Bingham Lake was chosen as school superintendent for the ensuing year at a salary of $2,000. He succeeded F.B. Czia, who had been superintendent two terms.

Letter to the Editor

Dennis GrifďŹ n, 66, former resident of St. Thomas, died at his home in Miles City, Mont., and his remains were brought back to St. Thomas for burial. J.J. Rendle and O.F.

The funeral was held from the East Union church.

120 Years Ago (1897)

Dear Editor, Congratulations to Mr. Lynch for serving in the Navy. Your service is appreciated. You do make two leaps in your letter to the Herald that deserve clariďŹ cation. First, a new Navy inductee said “that he had hoped to go into business for himself. His reason: he did not like people telling him what to do.â€? Individualism is a basic American value and that is what is I see expressed. As far as I can see, the military is a good place to learn self sufďŹ ciency, self conďŹ dence and self respect all needed values for a successful entrepreneur. Not liking following orders is a common trait of most of us and using that for motivation to states one’s own goal for self employment seems very American not a prelude to anarchy. Second, Mr. Lynch states the Reason Alliances and the Satanic Temple are anarchists with the assertion from the following statement from Wikipedia “Satan (and the inverted pentagram) “as a symbol representing ‘the eternal rebel’ against arbitrary authority and social norms).â€? The key phrase in the quote isâ€? against arbitrary authorityâ€? not all authority. Why is the Satanic Temple organized? One is to gain attention for the in cause as disentangling religion and government. Far from being anarchists, The Satanic Temple is organized as a legal religion under the constitutional authority of our government. They are using that authority to gain a Constitutional protected access to the Belle

W.F. Latzke started construction of his new mill at the north side of the railroad tracks. The main building was to be 24x36, three stories high. The search for the bodies of the ferryboat passengers who drowned in the river continued without success. A beneďŹ t ball was given in the new hall of the Hallinan building for the widow of the children of William Zellmann, one of the victims of the ferryboat upset. Oranges and lemons were 20 cents a dozen, cranberries 7 cents a quart and oatmeal 3 1/2 cents a pound. A windstorm blew out a building front, knocked over chimneys and shade trees. The draw span on the river bridge, though locked at both ends, was broken from its fastenings until it stood lengthwise with the stream.

Plaine Veteranâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s park. Some at your city government have recognized the Limited Public Forum is Constitutional on shaky grounds if challenged by a legally recognized religion or public beneďŹ t organization who gets deigned access. The Belle Plaine Veteranâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s park is not yet â&#x20AC;&#x153;world famousâ&#x20AC;? as stated in Mr. Lynchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s letter but it perhaps will be soon and it will not be for the correct reasons, but for the wrong reasons. It will be because a narrow group of citizens hijacked the park by placing a religious based sculpture of a deceased loved one in the park rather than on the private property of a surviving loved one. Now in order to justify that action they have lead the city of Belle Plaine into the abyss of unpopular religions and groups demanding legal access to display their views. Perhaps Mr. Lynch and I can ďŹ nd some common ground in that veterans who have served and done their jobs honorably deserve our thanks. Whether they were Christian, Jewish, Muslim, atheists seems ill relevant. What does seems relevant is when they walk into a public park honoring their service that it should treat each of them equally. Steve Petersen Shoreview MN

Beginning April 16, the Chicago and Northwestern railroad tracks bridge on Highway 25 in Belle Plaine would be reduced to one-lane trafďŹ c for the entire summer. TrafďŹ c signal lights would be in place to regulate the one-lane trafďŹ c. Arcon Construction of Mora was the low bidder at $608,883.71 to remove the old bridge and build a new one at the existing site. There was great concern among Scott County Board commissioners on how the county would handle its solid waste problem. The countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only landďŹ ll, the Louisville LandďŹ ll, had been taking in almost more garbage than it could handle since the closing of the Flying Cloud LandďŹ ll in Eden Prairie. A combination of a large volume of garbage and a dry, windy spring was causing litter problems. Most Belle Plaine stores would be closed from noon to 3 p.m. on Friday, April 17 in observance of Good Friday. They would reopen at 3 p.m. and stay open until 8 p.m. It was announced that there were over 200 prizes donated for the Belle Plaine High School prom that spring, among them a 1974 two-door Buick Apollo with just 30,000 miles on it. Belle Plaine High School speech team member Sheral Kahle placed second in Poetry at the regional speech contest and would advance to the state meet April 24 at Frank B. Kellogg High School in Roseville on April 24. The BPHS baseball team split two games that week, losing to Mankato Loyola 15-2 and beating Norwood 4-2. Jeff Bruder pitched the entire game against Norwood. He also had a RBI double. The Tiger softball team blitzed Mankato Loyola 9-1. Jean Schultz pitched a strong game and Lori Johnson had a two-run triple. Schultz also pitched the Tigers to a 6-3 win over Norwood. Johnson had three singles and Barb Weirke tripled and singled to bring in two runs.

Belle Plaine Farmer Places High in Corn Yield Contest As the American farmer strives to meet the growing demand for corn required to satisfy increasing world demand, Jesse Buesgens of Belle Plaine has been honored for his efforts through the 2016 National Corn Yield Contest. The national contest, sponsored annually by the National Corn Growers Association, recognizes farmers from across the country for their exceptional efforts. Buesgens placed third in the state in the B: AA Non-Irrigated Class with a yield of 288.1698 bushels per acre. The hybrid used in the winning field was

Pioneer P1151AM. Buesgens was one of 400 state winners nationwide. The 2016 contest participation included 7,979 entries from 46 states. Of the state winners, 18 growers â&#x20AC;&#x201C; three from each of six classes â&#x20AC;&#x201C; were named national winners, representing nine states. The average yield among national winners was 374.7 bushels per acre â&#x20AC;&#x201C; greater than the projected 2016 U.S. average of 175.3 bushels per acre. Five of the national winners recorded yields of 400 bushels or more per acre. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This harvest, the world witnessed the incredible bounty

U.S. corn farmers can provide to meet the growing need for food, fuel and fiber both in our nation and around the world,â&#x20AC;? said NCGA President Wesley Spurlock, a corn grower from Stratford, Texas. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our contest participants demonstrated that Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s farmers continue to strive for excellence while adopting state-of-the-art tools which help them meet those goals,â&#x20AC;? Spurlock continued. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The top yield in this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s contest â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a tremendous 521.3968 bushels per acre achieved by Randy Dowdy of Valdosta, Ga., - is a testament to these efforts.â&#x20AC;?

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.

combined on three innings of relief, with Miller surrendering six earned runs in the sixth inning. “We swung the bats really well and were very aggressive at the plate,” said Belle Plaine coach Pat Schultz. “I think the time in Florida really helped us to be ready at the plate. It was good to see the boys keep the pressure on and continue scoring runs throughout the game. Our pitching and defense were not as strong, so it was impor-

tant to have as many runs as we did. We had a lot of guys have very good days at the plate, but Carsen Ladd and Tyler O’Brien really did a good job of taking good at-bats and keeping pressure on their defense.” Tigers 4, Hinckley-F. 0 Herman pitched six scoreless innings on just two hits and two walks with 10 strike-

The rest of the field consisted of Sauk Rapids-Rice (71), Le Sueur-Henderson (67), TCU (67), Trinity School River Ridge (57), St. Clair (35) and Mankato Loyola/Cleveland (9).

Boysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; B.P. Invite Results

Nate Loegering took first place in three individual events as he propelled Belle Plaine to 131 team points, just three ahead of second-place Jordanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 128. Rounding out the field were Delano (61), Tri-City United (58) and Mayer Lutheran (32). According to Belle Plaine coach Josh Otto, the original results had Jordan winning the meet by seven points but Jordanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 4x200 relay was disqualified for running out of the exchange, which was brought to Ottoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attention by Jordanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s head coach Friday morning. After rescoring the meet, which is allowed up to 48 hours after the meet for clerical errors, the loss of points to Jordan and adding of points to Belle Plaine resulted in the new score. Loegeringâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s firsts came in the 200-meter dash (23.89), 400

(continued from page 11) dash (53.30) and high jump (5-08). Teammate Drew Spellman won both throwing events â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the shot put (44-08) and discus (116-09). Belle Plaine also captured two relay events. Included were the 4x100 squad of Jack Larson, Max Ponath, Brenden Eyrich and Marcus Walsh (46.34); and the 4x800 team of Kellen Bergs, Loegering, Kyle Siemon and Drew Hastings (9:09.33). Walsh picked up three secondplace finishes for the Tigers â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the 100 dash (11.71), 200 dash (23.92), which was 3/100th of a second behind Loegering), and the long jump (20-08). Also finishing second for Belle Plaine were Bergs in the 800 run (2:10.11), Siemon in the 1600 run (5:07.91) and Larson in the shot put (40-05).

A group of Belle Plaine and area residents mounted flags honoring America, its soldiers and emergency first responders to the East Main Street (Highway 25) bridge over Highway 169 Saturday. The group includes Katie and Steve Novotny of Belle Plaine, Jordanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Kevin Arenz and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Redâ&#x20AC;? (Dale) Bartholomew of Crystal.

Veterans Park According to its application, the monument that Reason Alliance plans to install in the park is a black steel cube with embossed inverted pentagrams with inlaid gold on four sides. An inverted soldierâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s helmet rests on the top of the cube. A plaque on the side of the cube will read:

(continued from page 1) In honor of Belle Plaine veterans who fought to defend the United States and its Constitution. The monument will be approximately 36 inches high, 23 inches wide and 23 inches long. Kris Otto, secretary of both the

Belle Plaine Veterans Club and VFW Auxiliary, said she would not be offended by Reason Allianceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proposed monument. But for now, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Just Joe, which Otto refers to simply as a memorial and nothing more. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s back in its proper place as is should be,â&#x20AC;? she said.

School Board and an additional 1Âź percent in 2018-19. The Senate is proposing an additional 1½ percent in both of the next two years. But those increases, whichever amount is finally approved, will be minimized by the cost of pensions for retirees. The district is also anticipating a 12 percent hike in its self-funded insurance plan. How that cost is shared, along with salaries and benefits, will be determined during school board contract talks with the two unions that represent the districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s licensed teachers and para-professionals/ support staff scheduled to begin this spring. At a time when costs are rising greater than 2 percent, Laager noted the issue is framed against the backdrop of the state sitting on a $1.6 billion budget surplus. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not going to get funded now, when will we?â&#x20AC;? Laager asked. But as Belle Plaineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s state lawmakers noted during their town hall meeting March 17, the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s surplus has plenty of potential suitors making the argument they should receive increases in funding. Arguments for tax relief, and additional funding for the Minnesota Department of Health & Human Services and Minnesota Department of Transportation claim a need for additional state funding. Laager told the board Monday the Title I program funding has been cut by 10 percent. The Title II program has been eliminated. The district uses Title II funding in 2016-17 to help pay the cost of a kindergarten teacher.

Two Options

The board is considering two options for adjusting its 201718 budget. The Step 1 option includes $331,000 in reductions and enhancements of revenue. Everyone who has a job will still have a job,â&#x20AC;? Laager said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;it just might be somewhere else.â&#x20AC;? It calls for reassigning staff positions, not replacing a retiring teacher, a $70,000 grant from the state, reduced funding for PLC leaders, not filling an open para-professional position, and reassignment of Response to Intervention (RTI) staff. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t find that many schools with that level of support,â&#x20AC;? the superintendent said of the RTI positions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been

(continued from page 1) great to have, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not sustainable.â&#x20AC;? The Step 2 option calls for $434,735 in cuts and additional revenue. It would eliminate two probationary teaching positions, would reassign two RTI positions, would reduce funding for general-education para-professionals by $27,500 and cut supplies by $20,000. It would also eliminate the after school building supervisor position, the mentor and reduce funding for the FFA advisor position. It includes the $70,000 grant from the state. With 1½ percent increases in 2018 and 2019, both proposals are based on the district taking in $146,000 in new money. But they both have the district $64,000 short of covering employee payroll.

Enrollment Ups & Downs

Slight drops in enrollments and small class sizes also plague the school district. Next yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kindergarten class is projected at 144 students. The first grade class is expected to have 138 students. Third, fourth and fifth, seventh and eighth grades all have robust projected enrollments of 120 students or more. But the second, sixth, ninth, 10th, 11th and 12th grades are all below 120, with junior and senior classes next year projected at 106 and 103 students, respectively. The district wants to see class enrollments in â&#x20AC;&#x153;in the 130s,â&#x20AC;? Laager said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;106 could become the 90s because you lose kids.â&#x20AC;?
