ONE HUNDRED AND THIRTY-THIRD YEAR

BELLE PLAINE, MINNESOTA, APRIL 23, 2014

Huntington’s Fund-raiser is Personal For Fahey, Goodchild

They’d give their last dime to cure a disease that has and will take loved ones from them. With nothing else they can immediately do to stop Huntington’s Disease, the two men promote increased awareness and money with the hope one day their efforts will bring a cure for this little known illness. Joe Fahey of Belle Plaine lost his first wife, Janice, his high school sweetheart, to Huntington’s Disease in June of 2002. She fought the disease for about 20 years. Jim Goodchild’s wife, Patty, was diagnosed with Huntington’s Disease in 2011. Patty’s diagnosis with the disease was a recognition she would have to fight the disease that took her mother, Dayle, back in the early-1980s. “We always knew this was a

Huntington’s Disease Benefit

Money, Awareness

Dozens of motor homes and campers have been parked at the Pioneer Power Association campground for days already in anticipation of this weekends’ swap meet and flea market.

Pioneer Power Swap Meet This Weekend The 37th annual Le Sueur County Pioneer Power Association Swap Meet and Flea Market will take place this Friday through Sunday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. There will be no early sales. The showgrounds are located 13 miles south of Belle Plaine on County Road 26 (watch for signs). A ham and egg breakfast will be available Friday starting at 7 a.m. until gone. A pancake

and sausage breakfast will take place from 7-11 a.m. Saturday and Sunday. Food and beverages will be available all hours elsewhere on the grounds. Admittance to the swap meet and flea market, which will be held rain or shine, is free to attend. Vendors can register for an outdoor space by calling Mike at 507-327-4927. If you prefer an indoor space, call Nancy at 507-931-4009.

Goodchild and Fahey agree the benefit serves a dual purpose. It helps raise funds for research and care of Huntington’s patients. But it also generates something almost as important – awareness of a disease most people have never heard of and know little about. As muscle and brain function deteriorates, Huntington’s Disease victims appear to walk and act as if they are inebriated. “It takes money to fund a cure, money to fund support,” Goodchild said. The gathering is also a chance for people who live with someone fighting the disease to find support. “We need it all.” Huntington’s disease (HD) is an inherited brain disorder that results in the progressive loss of both mental faculties and physical control. Symptoms usually appear between the ages of 30 to 50, and worsen over a 10 to 25 year pe-

Council Votes 3-2 to Continue With Current Overpass Plan by Dan Ruud The Belle Plaine City Council Monday night voted 3-2 to authorized the expenditure of up to $26,000 for the city engineering firm of Bolton and Menk to proceed with the preparation of a document (Appendix E). The purpose of the document is to pursue potential funding sources from the state for the proposed construction of an overpass near the Highway 169/County Road 3/Meridian Street intersection in Belle Plaine. “Under this proposal, Bolton and Menk will prepare the interchange request to conform to the Metropolitan Council’s requirements,” reported City Engineer Joe Duncan. Belle Plaine Mayor Mike Pingalore, Council Member Scott Schneider and other representatives of the city as well as Scott County have met multiple times in recent months to promote support for the project. Pingalore recently said the best-case scenario to get an overpass in place sooner than later with access to prime economic development land involves a plan called Alternative 2B, which he said the cost estimate for is slightly over $5 million. He added that the project could become reality as early as next year. Alternative 2B would involve the construction of a bridge over Highway 169. However, rather than build it at the point where County Road 3 intersects with Highway 169, it would be located a short distance down the southbound lane of Highway 169 with access from West Commerce Drive on the north side of Highway 169 and County Road 3 on the south side. This would not be a fullfledged interchange system with cloverleafs and all, which could cost approximately $15 million. But Alternative 2B would be enough to provide access to potential economic properties on both sides of Highway 169 for less than half of the cost. The county would pitch in at least $700,000 of the project cost and the rest could be financed through a variety of sources. The city is hopeful that the Minnesota Department

of Transportation (Mn/DOT) may fund a percentage of the cost as well, thus the need to deal with the Appendix E application process, the preliminary schedule for which is: May 1 – Kickoff meeting with Mn/DOT, Met Council and city of Belle Plaine. May 5-16 – Prepare responses to qualifying criteria. May 19 – Submit qualifying criteria. May 30 – Hold meeting to go

over qualifying criteria with Mn/DOT, Met Council and city of Belle Plaine. June 2-4 – Revise qualifying criteria based on comments from May 30 meeting. June 5-26 – Write draft interchange request document. June 27 – Submit draft interchange document. June 30-July 18 – Mn/DOT,

Ancient Order of Hibernians Find Stronghold Locally

A Fitting Stop Lloyd Schultz of Belle Plaine created a lot of baseball memories for himself, his family and many other members of the community during his playing days over a half century ago. Schultz, who died Friday at the age of 84, made one last trip to Tiger Park, where he played many games through the years. His funeral procession this past Tuesday went through Tiger Park, where family and friends got out of their vehicles to sing “Take Me Out to the Ball Game.� For more about Schultz’s baseball lore, see Tom Melchior’s letter to the editor on page 5.

Easter Sunday Bocce Ball Members of the Sensibaugh family from Shakopee, the Effertz family from Prior Lake, the Sanchez family from St. Paul and the Grimm family from Jordan were at Lori and Anthony Rella’s house on Maple Street in Belle Plaine Sunday to celebrate Easter. With a warm, sunny day, the group took time for some bocce ball across South and Maple streets.

Owned and Operated by the Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community.

by Karen Swenson, The oldest and largest Irish Catholic organization, the Ancient Order of Hibernians, has a presence in the local area with its Shamrock Division. Holding its Founders Day Mass Saturday, April 26, the group is inviting the broader community to join in the fun as they celebrate their Irish heritage. “This is an organization that has fallen by the wayside in recent years in Minnesota,� said Shamrock Division President Shawn Kirby, of Le Sueur. “But in the last few years, membership has been picking up at a steady rate.� With its base in Belle Plaine, the group draws members from the southern Minnesota area including Henderson, Le Sueur, Carver, Chaska and Shakopee. There is only one other division in the state of Minnesota, the John Ireland division of St. Paul. It boasts nearly 80 members. “Out East,� said Kirby, “Boston, New York, South and North Carolina, they have much stronger memberships and are really thick with lots of different divisions.� As a place to meet like-minded Irish Americans who share the same values and beliefs, Kirby has found satisfaction in the recent growth of the Shamrock Division, with nearly 70 members. “We’ve worked pretty hard on our communication,� said Kirby. “We have a Web site now and we’ve got a nice newsletter we put out. We’re doing more activities at our meetings, things like that.� As an Irish Catholic fraternity, the group puts more emphasis on socializing than charity work, said Kirby. “We are not out like the Lions Club or the Rotary, trying to make lots of money to give back to the community. We have a little money in our account and we give to things that we think are of interest to us,� Kirby said. The local Hibernian group recently donated $500 to have the Belle Plaine’s Catholic Church’s statue of St. Patrick restored. “There were a lot of chips in it and it needed to be repainted.� They also have a scholarship fund and give $500 scholarships to all college bound children and grandchildren of its members. “You don’t have to be 100 percent Irish, just a little trickle

“You don’t have to be 100 percent Irish, just a little trickle will do.�

–– Shawn Kirby

Shawn Kirby will do,� said Kirby. “You can be a Schmidt or a Schultz and still be a member of the Hibernians. But it is a Catholic group, so you have to be a practicing Catholic.� And it is only for men. There is a women’s auxiliary associated with the St. Paul division, but not this local division, at this time, he said. “It’s a fellowship with guys your own age, guys with your same interests, same faith, same heritage,� explained Kirby. The organization meets every second Wednesday of each month. A member for 20 years, Kirby has become much more active in the group as his children have grown and moved from home, freeing up his time. “When I kind of got re-activated in it, maybe four or five years ago, there were three or four people showing up for meetings. Now we’ve got a good two dozen people showing up. I’ve enjoyed watching this group grow.� Monthly meetings are come as you are, but there are three dress-up days for the group. St. Patrick’s Day parade, the Christmas party and Founder’s Day Mass, members are expected to wear their green silk vests and ties with their navy blazers and their khakis. Some also have sashes. “St Patrick’s Day is a big day with us,� admits Kirby. “We split up our group a bit as there are lots of different parades. We go to Mass in Belle Plaine and then go to the parade. Le Center has a parade and some of us drift over there. St. Paul has a rather large parade and we like to go up there and go to Mass at the cathedral with the John Ire-

land group and then go to the parade.� The Christmas party consists of an evening out with the wives, usually held at Lakeside Dinner Club near Montgomery. “Then, of course, we have this Founders Day coming up, the day our chapter was formed in 1980. We are a relatively new group.� In the past, Founders Day has been a much smaller event, but this year the group is putting a new twist on it by hosting the event on a Saturday, bringing an Irish band and even a comedian. Opening it up to the public, there will be 200 tickets available at $25 apiece, $45

Jessenland Church per couple. Mass will be held at 4 p.m. at the Oratory of St. Thomas in Jessenland. The rest of the event will be held in the barn at Edgewood Farms on Sibley County Road 6, with a social hour at 5 p.m., a roast beef and chicken dinner at 6 p.m. followed by the comedian Michael Thorne and a band, The Tim Malloys. “We just want to get our name out there and let people know we are here. We are not too interested in making a lot of money on this, we just want everybody to have a good time and experience what we do,� added Kirby. For tickets, call Scott McDonald at 612-203-9772 or Tony Hartmann at 612-245-9707.

Belle Plaine’s Bob Malz Ready for Life After Jordan P.D. Jordan’s Top Cop Served Two Stints as B.P.’s Interim Police Chief

He’s been in law enforcement for almost 30 years at small communities in the area. As he works the final month of his career, Belle Plaine native Bob Malz is ready for life after police work. Malz has been Jordan’s police chief since 2000. His resume includes full-time police officer positions in Le Center and St. Peter. He also worked part-time for about a year in Gaylord and Belle Plaine. He’ll retire as Jordan’s police chief at the end of May. Malz has also worked two stints as Belle Plaine’s interim police chief in the last decade. His temporary office in Belle Plaine was not far from the house where he grew up along the 200 block of South Cedar Street. What will he do with his time after retirement? Malz, 50, isn’t saying yet. He’s got some ideas about public service projects. And there are some overdue work around the house he knows must be addressed. “My wife has a pretty big honey-do list for me,� he said. Malz is well grounded in Jordan. He’s a member of the Lions Club and is a treasurer in the Jordan food shelf. With a son still in high school and land up north, the family has no immediate reason to take off. He followed his father into law enforcement. Bob Malz Sr. was a sergeant in Jordan before he left law enforcement. The younger Malz was intrigued by the trappings of the job – excitement, a car with flashing lights, the badge and work arresting bad guys.

Bob Malz

The ‘Heart of a Public Servant’

Along the way, as he matured, Malz realized police work in a smaller community is more about helping people when they need it most and improving the quality of life for the community than driving fast with the sirens blaring. “It looked like a cool profession. I got into the right profession for the wrong reason,� he said. “When you’re young, you look at things differently. As you get older, you figure out you either have the heart of a public servant or you don’t.� He still enjoys occasional patrol work, still enjoys responding to calls where he can help improve a resident’s quality of life. He recently found a stray dog on the street and took it to the pound where it will hopefully be reunited with its owner. The best part of his job is the relationships with the community. The toughest part is the work of a department administrator. But that work has been made a little more palatable because, as Malz said, he’s always felt supported by city hall. Malz is pleased the Jordan Police Department is back teaching DARE in schools, has a canine officer and has an increased

presence in schools. He’s got an office at Jordan high. It’s a more lively setting than his office in Jordan City Hall where there are two administrative support staff screening potential interruptions. His open door policy at the high school allows students to stop in and ask quick questions, “like how high can my bumper be?� It also gives Malz’s son the chance to stop in to his father’s office, relax in the chair and hit dad up for lunch money. “He never really had that access before,� Malz jokes. After retirement, Malz’s eye on public service includes possibly expanding the food shelf to include a thrift store. He’ll retire wishing the City of Jordan could have transformed a house it owns into temporary housing for victims of domestic abuse. Today, victims of domestic abuse receive a voucher for a hotel room. That may put them in a safe place, but a hotel can be a “little impersonal,� Malz said. Transforming the house might be a worthy project for the Lions, he said. “I still might do that. I want to do that,� he said.

riod. People donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t die from Huntingtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Disease itself, Goodchild said. Ultimately, the patient dies from pneumonia, heart failure or other complication that includes choking on the tongue or food because the muscles lose control. This is the 14th year the benefit has been held. It has raised, Fahey said, over $325,000 toward research and support for a cure and support for people who face Huntingtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Disease.

Ten residents spoke at Mondayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual property evaluation public hearing that was held prior to the city council meeting. The first to speak was Cheryl Flynn, who said sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been trying to sell her building on East Main Street for three years, but because of the taxes on it, she has been unable to do so. She asked that the property be reevaluated and Elizabeth Vatsaas of the Scott County Attorneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office said the county will do so. A number of other property owners expressed similar concerns with their properties, and in most cases, Vatsaas and Carrie Borgheiinck, who also represented Scott County at the hearing, will review their appeals and report back to the council with their findings on May 5.

When it came time to vote on Appendix E Monday night, it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the need to pursue money for the overpass project that resulted in two no votes, but rather the location of the bridge. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t approve of this,â&#x20AC;? said Council Member Gary Trost. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like where the bridge is. I think it should go straight over (Highway 169). Trost added that building the overpass where itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proposed to go will hinder the community for many years. He also said that the council never had a chance to vote on where the overpass should be located. Council Member Paul Chard agreed with Trost, saying that the crossing should be on a straight line with County Road 3/Meridian Street. Mayor Mike Pingalore said the city has already gone down that road with the Minnesota Department of Transportation (Mn/DOT), and that the agency is opposed to it. He added that reproposing a crossing right at Highway 169 and County Road 3 would set the project back many years and possibly force the relocation of Stier Bus Company. It would also cost twice as much. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You think coming up with the money is difficult now, try coming up with $15 million,â&#x20AC;? Pingalore said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This bridge is very important to our community. I think this is the next step in the growing of our community.â&#x20AC;? Pingalore said local business people have told him that the Alternative 2B plan is a good one and will lead to more economic development, which the city needs to have to increase its tax base and take some of the burden off present taxpayers. Council Member Cary Coop said Belle Plaine has for many years been â&#x20AC;&#x153;shortsighted when it comes to this highway (169).â&#x20AC;? He said that years ago Mn/DOT offered to build two overpasses in Belle Plaine but the community didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to because it didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to lose all of its (ground-level) crossings. All those crossings were eventually closed, the final ones coming after the existing overpass and interchange was built and opened at East Main Street seven years ago. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If we can get two bridges built across this highway, we should do it,â&#x20AC;? Coop said. Pingalore, Coop and Scott Schneider voted to stick with the current plan and authorize Bolton and Menk to prepare Appendix E, while Trost and Chard voted no. In other business Monday night, the council voted 3-2 to approve the public works departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s request to purchase a replacement for its John Deere 5420 tractor at a cost of $23,000 after trade-in of the existing tractor. Public Works Superintendent Al Fahey reported that the department uses the 5420 daily during the summer for dragging fields and mowing the water ways and ponds. A snow thrower is used on the tractor during the winter months to clear the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 6-foot trails. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This tractor was purchased in 2002 and has 2,000 hours of operation on it,â&#x20AC;? said Fahey, adding that the purchase is included in the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s capital improvement plan for this year. Fahey explained that the tractor needs new tires and is having hydraulic issues. Trost said he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think that 2,000 hours for a John Deere tractor is all that much, and that the city should do what it needs to keep its vehicles running longer. Fahey said now is the optimum time to trade-in the old tractor and receive the most value for it. If the city waits, it will have to purchase new tires, fix the hydraulic system and receive less trade-in value on the existing tractor when the time comes to replace it. Pingalore, Coop and Schneider voted in favor of a new tractor,

Did you know that there is such a thing as â&#x20AC;&#x153;National Jelly Bean Dayâ&#x20AC;?? Yesterday, April 22 was it. You missed it, didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t you? That is what happens when you do not stay well informed. Just think what you missed. If you are a regular reader of this column, you know that we try to keep you informed as much as possible about library events. Since our space is limited, we rely on you to call us, visit the library and read the information we have posted, and also to have you visit URL: http:// www.scott.lib.mn.us/ on the internet. The web site informs you on a wider range of activities throughout the Scott County Library System. To find these localized schedules, click on â&#x20AC;&#x153;Locations and Hoursâ&#x20AC;? six links down on the left side.

A Quilt for Next Yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Class Belle Plaine sixth grade students in 1984 made a 30-square quilt that they planned to raffle to raise money so that the 1985 sixth grade could spend five days at the Environmental Learning Center (ELC) in Isabella in northern Minnesota. Approximately 30 students made the quilt squares while they were at ELC the previous fall. Pictured with the quilt are front, from left, Melissa Wolf and Mark Mahoney. In the back, from left, are Michelle Ahrens, Jason Stier, Denise Koepp, Steve Morrison and Brenda Fahey. determining state needs. The bill called for a two-year siting moratorium. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a super, super victory,â&#x20AC;? said Carver County Board Member Earl Gnan of Norwood. St. Johnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lutheran Church in Belle Plaine was cooperating with WCCO Television in Project Abuse, an attempt to inform children and parents about the dangers of sexual abuse of children and to educate the public on how children can be protected from this type of abuse. A special meeting would be held April 30 at the church. Recent studies had revealed that between 15 and 38 percent of all girls and 3 to 10 percent of all boys were victims of sexual abuse before the age of 18. Dr. Roger Bromaghim announced the opening of his Big Lake dental office for May 1 in the Medical-Dental Clinic building there. Dr. Bromaghim, 31, is the son of Roger and Luella Bromaghim of Belle Plaine and a graduate of Belle Plaine High School. Donna M. Bigaouette, 46, died at her home in Belle Plaine on April 19. She was born in Mankato and on July 18, 1959 married Gerald J. Bigaouette of Belle Plaine. Three members of the BPHS speech team were to compete at the upcoming state contest in Shakopee.

Nine cars of a Chicago and Northwestern freight train derailed in front of Wendt Laboratories in Belle Plaine that Wednesday. The 31-car train traveling from St. Paul to St. James jumped the track at 10:55 a.m. It was carrying a variety of items, including steel and corrugated paper. The cars that derailed were empty. None of the four crew members were injured. The damage was estimated at $90,000. Incumbents Don Koepp and Pat Schwartz were the only ones to file for the two threeyear terms up for election on the Belle Plaine School Board. The filing period had come to a close. Budd and Dolores Hagen of Belle Plaine returned home from Fairbanks, Alaska, where they conducted a â&#x20AC;&#x153;Closing the Gapâ&#x20AC;? computer workshop and interfaced several handicapped children with computers and special devises. The Hagens offered the two-day workshop to teachers working in the Fairbanks North Star Borough. A radical change in direction for waste management in Minnesota came out of legislative action. After a four-year rush to find a hazardous waste landfill, the Legislature told the Waste Management Board to slow down and develop a plan

60 Years Ago (1954)

Howard Stender, 20, Young America, was killed in an automobile tragedy in Carver County. With Stender were Lester Loehrke, 34, and Melvin Feltman, 30, both of Young America. Both suffered critical injuries and were hospitalized. For the second year, Lee Lynch coveted the top honor of a superior rating in the State Speech Contest. He won his way from local to state with his selection â&#x20AC;&#x153;Why Poison Yourself?â&#x20AC;? which was his own composition. Lois Lange, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Lange of Henderson, became the bride of Eldon Johnson of Stillwater. Rev. Richard Johnson, former pastor of the West Union Church, died at his home in Milbank, S.D. Miss Elaine Otto, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Otto of Belle Plaine, became the bride of Pfc. Donald K. Roman, son of Mr. and Mrs. Walter Roman of Minneapolis. George J. Brown, well-remembered former resident of Belle Plaine, died at the home of his sister in Edson, Alberta, Canada. He was 69 years old. At the Scott County Republican Convention Ed F. Smith and Walter Gatz were elected delegates to the district and state convention. Mrs. Emil Ashauer was an alternate. Many relatives and friends helped Mr. and Mrs. William C. Reinke celebrate their golden wedding anniversary. Mrs. Hubert Pinske, 57, wife of the Arlington auctioneer and realtor, died at her home in Arlington. Leo Albrecht made a strange find on his circus lots at the south side of town. While digging out some brush, his shovel came in contact with metal objects. He unearthed three brass ingots that were buried just below the sodline. The three bars weighed 56 pounds. Hurbert Molitor, who made his home in Belle Plaine with his son, Donald, died unexpectedly at the age of 80. The seniors of 1954 presented a four-act comedy â&#x20AC;&#x153;Seventeenâ&#x20AC;? directed by Harold Albrecht. The lead character was played by Lee Lynch. Carl Johnson made a trip to Aberdeen, S.D., to see his son, Pete, participate in the first professional ball game with the Winnipeg team. Mr. and Mrs. Carl Voss celebrated their silver wedding anniversary with relatives and friends at Waseca. The community failed to get mail one morning because of an unusual accident in the St. Paul railroad yards. A locomotive about to hook onto the mail train gave the front mail car so severe a jolt, it sent all six mail clerks to the hospital. Louis Richard, father of Francis Richard of Belle Plaine, and one other clerk were the most injured. Alonzo Lanphear, former resident of Belle Plaine, died at his home in Trenton, N.J. He was

Wheat prices had broken under the dollar mark and butterfat was down to 36 cents. Top hogs were $6.80. It didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t cost much to take to the road. A Ford runabout car was priced at $265 f.o.b. Detroit. Evan Trimbo, son of Mr. and Mrs. George Trimbo of Blakeley, and Miss Mildred Seleen of Heron Lake were married. The couple established their home at Wilmar, where the groom was employed. Mrs. Katherine Baldwin, 61, died in St. Paul where she had been making her home since the death of her husband, Michael Baldwin. Her remains were brought to Belle Plaine for funeral services at Sacred Heart Church. James Wilson Sr. and Harry Marks, local horseshoe-pitching champs, resumed their series of games. Howard Engfer, who had been clerking at Ehrenbergâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s drug store, commenced work for the wholesale drug company in St. Paul. The marriage of Miss Agnes Albrecht and Ben Ahmann, both former residents of Belle Plaine, took place at St. Paul Cathedral, and was attended by many relatives from here. The popular evening train to the cities no longer stopped at the Belle Plaine station. Private autos and busses were curtailing sales of passenger tickets. The death of Mrs. Henry Reinitz, 64, occurred at her home in Hamburg. The funeral was largely attended by many relatives and friends from the German Settlement. A cloudburst of unusual severity hit Chaska and the east portion of Carver County, filling basements, washing out roads and flooding fields. Matt Eder, Chaska alderman, met death when he touched an electric wire blown down in the storm. Members of the Brown, Denzer and Moore relationship of St. Thomas were in St. Paul to attend the marriage of George Brown and Miss Bernice McGee.

120 Years Ago (1894)

The Belle Plaine bank chartered a steamboat and barge and arranged to put on an excursion up the river on May 13. Extremely long Prince Albert coats were in style, and Belle Plaine men were equipping themselves in those togs. Bicycles were popular and numerous and a move was on to organize a bicycle club. There were three applicants for the job of street commissioner. On the 5th ballot, Martin Kelleher won out and was duly appointed. Coxey Armies were springing up all over the country. Hobos were joining under leaders and marching to town. One army marching through Iowa had a thousand men.

Letters to the Editor To the Editor, In late May of 1949, the Belle Plaine Tigers played their archrival, the Jordan Brewers. Jim Pollard, who played basketball for the Minneapolis Lakers in the winter and hit home runs for the Brewers in the summer, faced the Tigers. Belle Plaine needed the win to remain in a tie for first place. Pollard struck out 12 Tigers but gave up 16 hits as the Tigers won 13-10. Lloyd Schultz played third base and hit in the leadoff spot for Belle Plaine. Lloyd led the Tiger hitting attack with five hits in five official at bats, including two doubles. Pollard also hit Lloyd with a pitch. The Herald reported that one of Lloydâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hits went beyond the grounds in far left field but the umpire claimed the ball went through the wire fence in that distant area and limited it to two bases. I played in the Tiger outfield from 1954-1956. In most of those games I had the honor of playing next to Lloyd. As a 17 year old I could not have wished for a better mentor. The boys of my summers gave me wonderful memories of a great game: Gene Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Minnowâ&#x20AC;? Meyer, Fred and Paul Keup, Joe Shrake, Jerry Miller, Pete Johnson, George Bodmer, Dave Grosser and Lloyd Schultz. Tom Melchior Dear Editor, I strongly disagree with Mr. Ackermanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s opinion piece published on April 10 (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Broadband â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Is it a government obligation?â&#x20AC;? http://belleplaineherald.com/ main.asp?SectionID=12&SubS ectionID=54&ArticleID=3864). Contrary to his column, business owners and economic development officials know that poor broadband access and low speeds make communities less competitive. The Governorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Task Force on Broadband ranks Minnesota 23rd in broadband service, and Minnesota is not â&#x20AC;&#x153;above averageâ&#x20AC;? nationally, according to the Akamai â&#x20AC;&#x153;State of the Internetâ&#x20AC;? survey. Minnesota can and should do better. While Mr. Ackerman states that â&#x20AC;&#x153;government-funded broadbandâ&#x20AC;? is not needed, it was his company, XtraTyme, that took advantage of an innovative public-private partnership in Bird Island, according to the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis (http://m.minneapolisfed.org/article.cfm?id=2079). The Greater Minnesota Partnership hopes that these sorts of partnerships can be reproduced across the state. Specifically, local communities or the state should be able to build the infrastructure necessary to allow private providers to expand. An investment in high-quality broadband in Minnesota would add $1 billion to the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economy each year, according data from the Strategic Networks Group. However, it is still unclear whether our stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leaders will support even a modest broadband infrastructure fund to expand broadband access. Greater Minnesota has waited long enough. It is time for our policymakers and Governor to act this session to make Greater Minnesota strong. Sincerely, Gary Evans President of the Greater Minnesota Partnership and former President/CEO of Hiawatha Broadband Communications

Dear Editor, Belle Plaine schools would be taking a huge step in the direction of modernizing education by investing in computing devices for students. A tablet per student, properly utilized by staff, would drastically reduce the need for print-outs and textbooks, can open the door to alternative learning methods being brought into the classroom (think free online schooling as a supplement, e.g. Khan Academy, Ted Talks, Coursera), and can provide all students and staff the opportunity to learn and potentially even help develop a technology with rapidly growing real-world applications. Sadly for students, it does eliminate the "the dog ate my homework" excuse, but I'm sure the teachers and parents who read the paper can see past that downside. But I'm not writing this to pat the school on the back. Frankly, I'm a bit disappointed that they appear to be going down the well-worn path of publicly funded projects costing more than what most people with a wallet of their own would be willing to spend. I understand the draw Apple has; it's a well marketed brand with products that function and look superb, but a device for school use simply needs to allow students to write papers, read books, work with spreadsheets and presentation-creation software, calculate complex math problems, explore the internet, watch videos (educational ones, of course), compose and read emails, etc - all the basics of technology in education. The vast majority of portable devices available today (including the ones below) far surpass these needs and can be made to work with Belle Plaine schools' setup, so I'll skip the tech jargon and take a quick look at pricing for a few options: Right now the Windows Surface tablet has a base price of $349/device and the Chromebook comes in at $248/device. The Apple iPad Mini, which according to last week's paper is the device the district plans to buy, has a base price of $399/ device and the Google Nexus 7, which is comparable is size and ability to the Mini, has a base of $229/device. The Nexus and iPad have optional keyboards for about $30/each and basic cases for each are about $40/ each. They can all be upgraded, but the base product for each is perfectly workable for school use. This is clearly not a comprehensive list so please continue researching on your own, but I find it interesting that approximately four minutes of research shows a potential savings to tax payers of $289,000 on the proposed 1,700 tablets. While I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean to endorse the Nexus because I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know the exact needs and circumstances at the school, from a tech point of view itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a perfectly valid option and from a financial point itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s simply a superior option.  I hope that the education of current and future generations can be run by people who are devoted to intelligently utilizing modern technologies, like tablets, and that utilizing these technologies can help them be aware of ways to ease the bill tax payers are required to pay.  Respectfully, Douglas Crosby

St. Thomas Father James Burns officiated mass at St. Thomas to over 180 this Easter Sunday morning as Carlie and Mason Simon assisted Father at the altar, along with Will and Marvin Halloran. Words encouraging forgiveness and forgiving were so inspiring. Reader of the Liturgy was Brett Simon, taking up the gifts were Gary and Shirley Rutt, Kevin Halloran and James Oak. Eucharistic ministers were Debbie Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Connell and Jim Walker. Mary Schwartz was the organist and Marie Retka directed the St. Thomas Choir, and we appreciate Carol Jean Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Connell for the loving care of the church and the beautiful flowers. What a wonderful day, weather was perfect. Some folks visited among our dearly departed after mass. Little Noraâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grave was decorated for Easter. After mass Father Burns, his dad and family looked forward to dinner at the home of Hanna Younce in Vadnais Heights. Mass is scheduled at St. Anneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s every Saturday at 5:15 p.m. and Sundays at 8 and 10:30 a.m. Jim Oak was recently in Iowa for the memorial service of his uncle, 1st Lt. Louis Longmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s return home. More than 70 years after completing his fighter escort mission, World War Two Pilot Longmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s remains were returned home to Iowa. Longman, a 26 yearold Clinton, Iowa native serving, 5th Air Force, U.S. Army Corps was last seen April 16, 1944 as his unit returned from a B-25 bomber escort mission over Hollandia, New Guinea. Longman was on the return leg of the mission in an aircraft when his unit encountered severe weather, and was officially declared deceased on February 26, 1946, his remains were never found. Longmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s last location was in the vicinity of Bogadjim, New Guinea as his formation broke up. The 5th Air Force lost 53 pilots and crewmen that day. Jim has another uncle, 2nd Lt. Richard T. Longman, a Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress

navigator stationed in England, was also reported as missing in action after being shot down in February. Richard spent the next 14 months as a prisoner of war at Stalag Luft 1, near Barth, Germany before being liberated in May 1945.â&#x20AC;? A Funeral Service was held for Paul Byrne on April 19 at Redeemer Lutheran Church in Maple Grove. Paul, the youngest son of Patrick and Mary Grundhoffer Byrne, was baptized and confirmed in St. Thomas Catholic Church. He attended District 64 country school and St. Anneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. The Byrne family moved to the Twin Cities and Paul graduated from North High School in Minneapolis in 1957, entered the Army in 1961, was stationed at Fort Sheridian, and in Stuttgart, Germany. Paul married Karen Behr and with daughters, Karla and Julie, made their home in Brooklyn Center. Karen passed away 3 years ago. Paul was always a likable guy, kind, helpful, friendly and out-going. The Byrne homeplace here in St. Thomas was a farm on the west side of the lone windmill on CR 26. His folks, Patrick (18991977), Mary (1899-1990) and brothers, Jimmy (1938-1940) and Jackie (1929-1940) are among our dearly departed here at St. Thomas.

April 24-2014 Preschool & Kindergarten

Our Lady of the Prairie Catholic School

This week is Severe Weather Awareness Week in Minnesota. For more than 25 years, Minnesota has conducted a Severe Weather Awareness Week in partnership with the National Weather Service and local governments. The information campaign is designed to teach and remind Minnesotans about weather hazards and provides resources to minimize the risks associated with severe weather. The main event of Severe Weather Awareness Week is the annual statewide tornado drills. The drills are scheduled for Thursday, April 24 at 1:45 p.m. and 6:55 p.m. At those times, sirens and NOAA Weather Radios are will sound in a simulated tornado warning. The first drill is intended for institutions and businesses, while the evening drill is intended for second shift workers and especially families. All of our schools will be practicing our tornado drill during the 1:45 p.m. drill. According to the National Weather Service, Minnesota experiences an average of 40 tornadoes per year. In 2012, 37 twisters touched down. A record was set in 2010 with 104 tornadoes across the state. Understanding this threat and knowing what to do when a tornado is approaching can save lives. Take advantage of Severe Weather Awareness Week to review your own and your family's emergency procedures and prepare for weather-related hazards. Each day of the week will focus on a different topic: Monday - Alerts and Warnings; Tuesday - Severe Weather, Lightning and Hail; Wednesday – Floods & Flash Floods; Thursday – Tornadoes; and Friday – Extreme Heat. For information about each of these areas, please check out more information at https://dps.mn.gov/divisions/hsem. Thanks to the Belle Plaine Lion’s Club and member Bob Denny for spearheading the fundraising effort to construct a permanent restroom facility and ticket booth at the Belle Plaine Schools Athletic Complex. The addition of permanent bathroom facilities will be a great asset to all those who visit the Athletic Complex to watch football games (from elementary football on Saturdays through varsity football on Friday nights), track meets (we host a number of big meets each year for our boys and girls varsity teams & host junior high meets as well) and tennis matches (we host at least 8 contests each year and practice on site every day during the season). When all events are combined, there are over 30 events each year at the Athletic Complex. If your organization or you individually are interested in supporting this project, please contact Bob Denny or any member of the Belle Plaine Lion’s Club. I want to give everyone a quick reminder about nominations for our Friend of Education award. If you have someone you wish to nominate as a "Friend of Education", please contact me by Friday, May 9th. Please indicate the name of your nominee(s), their contact information and the contributions that they have made to the district that you believe makes them worthy of this honor. This award is a wonderful way to recognize individuals who have committed much time and effort to the youth of our community. The 2014 Friend of Education Award Recipient will be honored at the Spring Awards Banquet scheduled for Wednesday, June 4th. Thank you for your assistance with this request. As always, if you have any questions about school matters, please feel free to call me at 873-2400 or check our website at www.belleplaine.k12.mn.us. You may also find me on Twitter at @BPTiger716.

The Tigersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Aiden Ladd sprinted around first base en route to his second double of the game against W-M last Tuesday.

Baseball (continued from page 15)

The Tigers scored three runs in the fourth inning and seven more in the sixth to bring an early (10-run rule) end to last Tuesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Minnesota River Conference game in Belle Plaine. Chase Emmers pitched all six innings for the Tigers, surrendering just three hits and two walks while striking out seven. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He pitched great,â&#x20AC;? said Tigers coach Pat Schultz. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He attacked the zone, mixed up his spots and used a variety of pitches to keep Watertown-Mayer off balance all day. He really showed that he has the ability to be one of the top pitchers in the MRC. It was good to see the boys battle against a tough pitcher and manufacture some runs in the fourth inning before the bats came together in the sixth. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ben Wagner led off the fourth with a single and used smart and aggressive base running to reach third and force a wild throw from the catcher that led to our first run,â&#x20AC;? Schultz continued. Gavin Dauwalter had a big

two-run double later in the inning to stretch the lead to 3-0. Ten Tigers came to bat in the sixth and strung together seven hits and a walk to reach the 10run rule. Cameron Lark, like Dauwalter, had one hit and two RBI, while Aiden Ladd singled, doubled and drove home two. Wagner finished with two hits, a walk and two runs scored. Colton Hentges added two hits, a hit by pitch, a stolen base and two runs scored. Joe Hankins, Derek Dahlke and Emmers each had one hit. Tigers 2, TCU 1 Dahlke pitched all six innings for Belle Plaine as he struck out 11 and allowed just one hit and two walks. The Titansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; lone run came in the top of the second inning when it grabbed the lead. It stayed 1-0 until the bottom of the sixth when the Tigers scored two runs. In that frame, Dahlke and Ladd led off with singles to put runners at first and third with no outs. A wild pitch scored Dahlke and the

go-ahead run crossed the plate thanks to a clutch single by Dylan Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien. Belle Plaine had seven hits, including two from Ladd. Hankins, Ben Wagner and Tyler Schumacher added one hit apiece. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This was a fast and fun high school game,â&#x20AC;? Schultz said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Both pitchers threw well and the we battled to earn the victory. We finally played a solid game defensively and made the plays when needed. Our bats were a little slow to get started. We need to get better at being ready when we get into the box and not give at-bats away.â&#x20AC;? 2014 BPHS Baseball Results and Remaining Schedule Apr. 8 vs. St. Peter W 10-6 Apr. 10 vs. NYA W 8-4 Apr. 12 Belle Plaine Tourney vs. Paynesvi W 10-9 vs. Minnehaha L 3-2 Apr. 15 vs. W-M W 10-0 Apr. 21 vs. TCU W 2-1 Apr. 22 at New Ulm Apr. 24 vs. Mayer Luth.

H.S. Softball

Tigers’ MRC Slide Continues by Dan Ruud Scoring just one run in two games added up to two losses for the Belle Plaine High School softball team this past week. The Tigers fell at home to Watertown-Mayer 1-0 last Tuesday before dropping another home game to Le Sueur-Henderson 8-1 this past Monday. Belle Plaine, 1-3 in the MRC, was scheduled to host Tri-City United in another MRC game Tuesday after this edition of the Herald went to press. The Tigers will be at winless Mayer Lutheran this Thursday before heading to New Richland-

Hartland-Ellendale-Geneva for a tournament on Saturday. The Tigers will host Blue Earth Area and Jordan next Monday and Tuesday, respectively. Watertown-M 1, Tigers 0 Belle Plaine collected just three hits and one walk off Watertown-Mayer pitcher Lily Reinart as the visiting Royals left town with a 1-0 victory. Reinart also contributed at the plate with two hits. “We got beat by a team that wasn’t better than us,” said Belle Plaine coach Jeremy Kalal. “Our bats did not show up and you’re not going to beat

Belle Plaine leadoff hitter Elizabeth Johnson and the rest of the team did not have much luck last Tuesday against Watertown-Mayer, collecting only three hits and one walk.

many teams with only three hits. This very frustrating because we made an average team look way better than they were and we let them beat us. Defensively, we looked pretty good and our pitching was solid, but our overall offense and fire just wasn’t there.” As a result, a solid pitching performance by Maddie Studnicka was wasted. She pitched all seven innings, allowing just one run on four hits and no walks. She struck out six. Accounting for Belle Plaine’s only hits were Kate Schmit, Kaylee Hentges and Kenzie Koepp. LS-H 8, Tigers 1 Le Sueur-Henderson ace Carlie Brandt struck out 18 batters and allowed just three hits and four walks in leading her team to an 8-1 victory over Belle Plaine. The game was originally scheduled for last Thursday but was postponed until Monday due to weather. “We faced the best pitcher in the conference and our bats are still not there,” Kalal said. “You can’t win many games with three hits, especially if you play defense like we did. “We will be okay,” Kalal continued. “We are off to a really slow start but I have confidence that we will get it figured out and get things back to our winning ways. It’s tough and frustrating to see this group play like this, especially coming off such a great year like last year, but it’s time to hit the reset button and start mixing things up a bit.”

Southern Valley Allianceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Annual Fund-raiser Gala April 25

Scott County Board OKs â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Equityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Raise for Gary Shelton County commissioners granted Scott County Administrator Gary Shelton a 5 percent raise in an effort to bring his pay closer to the wages his metro area peers earn. The county board voted 4-1, with Commissioner Joe Wagner of Sand Creek Township dissenting. The increase elevates Sheltonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual salary to $139,336 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; an increase of $6,635. Despite the increase, Shelton remains the lowest paid county administrator in the metro area, including Washington and Anoka counties where the administrators have less experience as county administrators. The average salary of those administrators is $155,000, said Jack Kemme, Scott Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s director of Employee Relations. Under Scott Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s compensation policy, he said, the midpoint of the administratorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s salary range is $155,300. Because of the recession that gripped the state and region at the time, Shelton maintained his salary as county deputy administrator when he was promoted to administrator in July 2009. He and top staff declined a raise 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012. There was no salary adjustment that year, but commissioners OKâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d a lump sum payment ranging from Âź to 1 percent. The commissioners

froze all county staff salaries in 2012. Shelton is currently paid less than two of his subordinates and earns just more than two other subordinates in county administration. Since he became the county administrator, Sheltonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wage has increased by just over 2½ percent, or ½ percent annually. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s slight compared to the salaries of other elected officials or other county management staff, whose salaries have increased by about 8 percent, Kemme said. Commissioners Barbara Marschall of Prior Lake and Jon Ulrich supported the raise for Shelton, citing his performance, knowledge and equity. Shelton is due a performance review later this summer. Kemme said he would recommend another wage increase at that time if the performance review warrants an increase. Wagner wants the performance review nixed and suggested commissioners express their feelings on Sheltonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s performance during one-on-one meetings with the administrator. Commissioners Tom Wolf of Credit River Township, the boardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chairman, and David Menden of Shakopee are leery of another raise later this year.

The event is open to the public. It includes an evening of music, entertainment and many items to bid on. Social hour and silent auction bidding will begin at 6 p.m. followed by dinner at 7:30 p.m. To purchase tickets for $50 per person through Friday (April 18), or to donate an item for the auction, call 952-873-4214

Area Farmers Challenging Power Line Builders in Court

Owners of a longtime area dairy farm are challenging the consortium of power companies that built the power lines across Minnesota in Scott County District Court. This morning (Wednesday, April 23) in Shakopee, Florence and Dave Minar, owners of Cedar Summit Farm, will be in court claiming the CapX power line that crosses a piece of their farm near New Prague threatens the viability of the dairy, beef and poultry operation. They want CapX to be re-

quired to buy their farm under the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Buy the Farmâ&#x20AC;? law. The law requires a utility to buy the operation when its project threatens the viability of the operation. The Minars believe stray voltage from the power line could impact the health of their grass-fed cows their cows and will negatively impact the business operation.
