BPHS sophomore Isaiah Trimbo recently earned a perfect score on the ACT exam.
Can’t Get Any Better BPHS Sophomore Aces ACT Exam
Isaiah Trimbo Took Exam Just for the Experience
He thought the information in front of him on a computer screen was an example, a display of what the results of the American College Test (ACT) results are supposed to look like. Belle Plaine High School sophomore Isaiah Trimbo didn’t immediately realize it was his test results. And it was perfect, 36 out of 36. The son of Katie and Chad Trimbo, Isaiah learned in November he had aced the ACT exam. The exam is a display of college readiness, tests a student’s acumen in science, math, reading, and English. He was recently recognized for the accomplishment by the Belle Plaine School Board. Trimbo took the exam in October and received the results back online in November. He didn’t take the exam just to gain admission into a college. He’s only a 10th-grader, just 15 years old. Always looking for a challenge, Trimbo wants to take college level post-secondary enrollment option (PSEO) classes while in high school.
“I took it for the experience, for the future,” he said. “I just like taking tests and seeing how I’ll do.” Katie Smith said her son’s favorite class is chemistry, a class some shy away from because of the academic rigor associated with it. Smith, herself a Belle Plaine native, has always enjoyed math and science. As a 5-year-old, she said Isaiah was using math and science to prove Santa Claus couldn’t possibly exist. As a fourth-grader, he was devising his own methods for accurately and consistently solving math problems. “He’s just always loved math and science. Those things come very natural to him,” Smith said. “It’s kind of hard to grasp how smart he is. I knew he was going to do well, maybe 32, 34.”
‘Kind of Crazy’
Once Trimbo realized the score on the computer screen was his and that he had aced the ACT, Trimbo began to realize what he had accomplished. He sent his mom a text message and sat

‘Remembrance Run’ A lone runner, followed by supporters in three vehicles, made his way through Belle Plaine before dawn Monday (Dec. 26) during a segment of the 30th annual “Remembrance Run.” The run memorializes the trek condemned Dakota men walked from Fort Snelling to the gallows in Mankato after the Dakota Indian War during the summer and fall 1862. Thirtyeight Dakota men were hanged in what is the largest mass execution in United States history. Leaving Fort Snelling just after midnight Monday, runners annually retrace the approximately 80-mile route their ancestors walked from Fort Snelling to Mankato. Because of weather conditions, this year’s run was split into segments run concurrently. A southwest wind gusting from 25 to 40 mph slowed runners’ progress as they battled single-digit windchills.
Steel workers guided the first of six 40-ton concrete beams into place over southbound Highway 169 in Belle Plaine the night of April 20. The following night, six beams were placed over the northbound lanes.
The 2016 Year in Review
Startups and Endings Among Top Stories There was plenty of out with the old and in with the new in Belle Plaine in 2016. Among the new are a second overpass and city administrator. Included in the gone are Steffen’s Hardware Store and several elected officials. Two tragedies ended several lives prematurely, one a hitand-run vehicle crash and the other a murder, the former taking the life of a young Belle Plaine man and father, and the latter a former Belle Plaine woman and high school homecoming queen. The Herald’s top news story for the year was the opening of Belle Plaine’s second Highway 169 overpass, which two weeks later was followed by the ground-breaking and start of construction of another top 10 local news event – the Ridgeview Medical Clinic and Lutheran Home senior living campus, which is scheduled to open in 2017. The historic general election of 2016 promises to bring more change – locally and nationally. Not only did Belle Plaine very strongly support the controversial President-elect Donald Trump on Nov. 8, but it voted in a new mayor and two new city council members. There’s also a new sheriff in town after the old one, who is from Belle Plaine, retired in midterm. Also garnering a lot of ink in 2016 was Belle Plaine High School’s sports and activities teams, especially the baseball team that not only became the first in program history to make it to the state tournament, but played in the state Class 2A championship game on a beautiful June day at pristine Target Field in downtown Minneapolis. The weather was also inviting for Belle Plaine’s annual St. Patrick’s and Bar-B-Q Days celebrations, the former of which was held on March 12 when the mercury climbed to a record 70s degrees for that day. On page 2 begins a recap of the first four months of 2016. The Year in Review will continue in next Wednesday’s Herald.
After running Steffen Hardware in downtown Belle Plaine since the 1970s, Jim Steffen began his retirement sale in May.
Top 10 Stories of 2016
(1) Hello Bridge, So Long Turn Lanes – Following a ribbon-cutting ceremony on July 27, the Enterprise Drive overpass opened. Afterwards, it took the Minnesota Department of Transportation (Mn/DOT) just six days to close the left-turn lanes from Highway 169 to County Road 3/Meridian Street. Mn/DOT made removing the left-turn lanes a requirement from the beginning of the bridge planning phase and stood by it. S.M. Hentges and Sons of Jordan was awarded the overpass project at the low bid of $3,179,966.84, which was over $1.2 million below the city engineer’s construction estimate of $4,387,703. (2) Business Closures/Changes – After running Steffen’s Hardware in downtown Belle Plaine since the 1970s (his father, William, started the business in 1955), Jim Steffen announced a retirement sale that would start on May 26. Decades after he took over the operation from his father, Steffen said he was ready to take his leave. He had the building on North Meridian Street at East Church Street for sale for the past few years. “I’ll be 70 next month,” he said. “I want to go to car shows, to swap meets or on vacation. I want to jump in the car and not worry about the business." Different groups of people, one from Belle Plaine and others from the Twin Cities proper, were interested in buying the hardware store, a member of the Do It Best chain. Steffen said the amount of money Do It Best wanted up front from the interested buyers was a hurdle too steep to be cleared. The building went for sale for $179,000. Meanwhile, Otto Pries put the cap on the Little Brown Jug liquor store in Belle Plaine, which he opened in 1975 at 520 Commerce Drive East. Pries said he planned to retire, and after making some improvements to the building, would put it up for sale. Ron and Heather Fry, owners of the Belle Plaine Dairy Queen for the past 3 1/2 years (they still are), purchased the Borough Bowl from Judy Otto and her son, Tom Otto. The eight-lane bowling alley with bar and restaurant was built by the late Ivan Otto and opened in 1976 at 235 South Ash Street. Prior to that the business was located downtown. (3) Construction Starts on Massive Project – Fifteen days after a “ribbon-cutting” ceremony marking the opening of a second overpass in Belle Plaine, a “ground-breaking” ceremony was held just a little more than a football field length away to mark the start of construction of a nearly $20 million medical clinic, wellness center and senior housing campus at the northwest corner of the intersection of Highway 169 and County Road 3/Meridian Street. Officials from Ridgeview Medical Center, The Lutheran Home Association and the City of Belle Plaine, some with gold shovels in hand, and others gathered at the site Aug. 11 to ceremonially flip some dirt to commemorate the start of real earth-moving. Excavation and tree removal for what will be one of the biggest building projects in Belle Plaine history got underway Aug. 15. Plans call for a mixed-use development that will include a three-story, 55-unit senior independent living center, a 12,900-square-foot medical clinic with future vertical expansion up to three stories and a 10,000-square-foot health and wellness center. Ridgeview Medical Center (medical clinic and health and wellness center) and The Lutheran Home Association (senior housing facility) are teaming on the project. Top 10

Missing Manâ€™s Body Found in Lake Waconia Last Tuesday Ice Anglerâ€™s Camera Locates Stifter
The search for Andrew John Stifter of Waconia, the missing paddle-boarder, is completed. Carver County Sheriffâ€™s deputies recovered his body Tuesday afternoon (Dec. 20) from Lake Waconia. He was found by an ice fishermanâ€™s camera just before 4:30 p.m. in approximately 10-12 feet of water in the lakeâ€™s southeast quadrant. The Midwest Coronerâ€™s Office determined Stifter died of freshwater drowning. The manner of his death remains un-
der investigation, said Carver County Sheriffâ€™s Chief Deputy Jason Kamerud. Investigators are waiting on the toxicology report and final medical examinerâ€™s report to close the investigation, Kamerud said. The search for Stifter, 35, in the southeast quadrant of the lake had been suspended because of ice on the lake. Deputies and other emergency responders had been searching for Stifter since he was reported missing Nov. 26. He had reportedly been on the lake on a paddleboard photographing wildlife on and around the lake. Stifter is married with two children. His wife is expecting a third child.
Le Sueur EDA Still Looking for Solution to Cambria Expansion Le Sueurâ€™s municipal economic development authority (EDA) is still looking for a solution to help Cambria complete its expansion plans, a move intended to bring hundreds of new jobs and tax base to the city, county and school district. A proposed land swap between the city EDA and the state is the first step toward allowing Cambria to complete expansion plans, the Le Sueur News-Herald recently reported. It will take land the city has ac-
quired north of Wolf Motors on the west side of Highway 169 on Le Sueurâ€™s hilltop and sell it to the state, an exchange that will allow Cambria to expand on to land on the east side of the highway currently being used for a highway rest stop. The Minnesota Department of Transportation (Mn/DOT) needs to purchase the EDA land. It has to work out financing for its part of the deal. Mn/ DOT needs to acquire the 34-

Commissioners, Attorney, Sheriff Receive Raises
In its ďŹ nal meeting of 2016 last Tuesday (Dec. 20), the Scott County Board approved pay raises for itself, the county attorney and county sheriff. The county board approved a 3.472 percent pay hike, increasing commissionersâ€™ salaries to $59,930. Commissioners are also paid $50 per diem for attending board-approved committee assignments plus beneďŹ ts. The county boardâ€™s vice-chairperson will be paid $75 per month for additional duties. The board chairperson will be paid an additional $150 per month for additional work associated with the leadership role. Scott County commissioners OKâ€™d a 3.676 percent increase in the county sheriffâ€™s 2017 salary. The increase moved Sheriff Luke Hennenâ€™s salary to $146,212. County Attorney Ron Hocevar also received a raise for next year. The board approved a 2.359 percent increase in his salary, increasing it to $158,146. He also received a $300 per month car allowance. The raises are all based to keep the county sheriff, commissioners and county attorney on pair with the average pay of their counterparts in metro area counties, excluding the more populated Hennepin and Ramsey counties. The raises were unanimously approved via the consent agenda, without discussion at the Dec. 20 meeting.
Scott County wasnâ€™t the only county increasing the compensation its elected ofďŹ cials will earn in 2017. In Carver County, commissioners raised their own compensation by 27.8 percent to $62,064 from $48,564. The county board chairperson will be paid an extra $715 per month for duties associated with the position. The vice-chairperson will be paid an additional $640
Erica Selly Gets Scholarship Erica Selly, of Belle Plaine is the recipient of a University of Minnesota, Morris Alumni Association scholarship for the 2016-17 academic year. Many UMM alumni make contributions to the Morris Scholarship Fund through alumni annual giving. Through their collective efforts, they have made it possible for students to receive scholarships based on academic merit. On Sept. 20, more than 130 students gathered to celebrate their scholarship awards and to share their â€œAttitude of Gratitude.â€?
per month and commissioners $615 for additional duties connected to their positions. The Carver County Sheriffâ€™s salary was increased to $150,142 â€“ an increase of approximately 5.734 percent. The County Board increased the Carver County attorneyâ€™s salary by approximately 6.902 percent to $162,491. In Le Sueur County, commissioners have only set 2017 salaries for themselves. They increased their salaries from $28,210 to 28,933.70 â€“ an increase of about 2.57 percent. County Administrator Darrell Pettis said the county board
might address the salaries of the county attorney and county sheriff at its Jan. 3 meeting. Sibley County commissioners increased the salaries of elected ofďŹ cials by 2 percent across the board. They set the salary of the county sheriff at $105,653.60. The county auditorâ€™s salary is $72,197.77 and the recorderâ€™s salary is $68,462.16. The Sibley County treasurer in 2017 will be $71,329,23. Commissioners increased their own salary by 2 percent at $25,571.02. Commissioner Bobbie Harder of Henderson Township declined the increase.
Scott County OKs 4.6 Percent Levy Bump Approving a levy that keeps pace with rising costs plus allows the county to take on some of its needed projects, Scott County commissioners approved a 4.6 percent in the property tax levy for 2017 at its ďŹ nal meeting of the year last Tuesday (Dec. 20). The countyâ€™s 2017 property tax levy is $63.66 million, a $2.8 million increase from 2016. It will help fund a total 2017 budget of just over $151.78 million, an increase of about 7.36 percent. The board approved the levy by a 4-1 vote, with Commissioner Joe Wagner casting the lone dissenting vote. He claimed the increase was well beyond the rate of inďŹ‚ation. The budget was passed unanimously. To the owner of a typical house in Scott County, the levy means an increase of just over $9 for the year in the countyâ€™s share of the property tax bill. Just over half the house owners in Scott County will see that property tax bump, thanks in part of that increase results from the house
gaining value, said Gary Shelton, the countyâ€™s administrator. A portion of the property tax levy â€“ just over $2 million â€“ is intended for rising costs of day-to-day operations, including salaries. It will also help fund additional staff, capital improvements and funding for the county fair, the county historical society and U of Minnesota Extension services in Scott County. The county boardâ€™s budget is also funded by state and federal aid. The rest of the increase will go to help capital investment that includes investment in roads, parks and debt payments. The levy also funds unexpected cost shifts from the state to the county. The state has made the counties now responsible for community behavior health care. Counties must also now fund an increasing share of the tab for mentally ill people incarcerated for crimes, a mandate covering almost one-third of the $1.5 million increase in the countyâ€™s health and human services budget.

Thirty Years Ago This Week
Letter to the Editor
90 Years Ago (1926)
Harvesting Corn on Dec. 28 Edgar Ruehling, who farmed one mile south of Belle Plaine on County Road 3, was pictured doing his fall harvest on Sunday, Dec. 28 in 1986. Mr. Ruehling stated that his corn was too wet to harvest and store earlier that fall, so he decided to wait on one small ďŹ eld. The weather had stayed mild enough for many farmers in southern Minnesota to get their crops out of the ďŹ eld late, and in so doing, save money on drying costs. Mr. Ruehlingâ€™s corn was being used to feed his farm animals. The Belle Plaine City Council approved a 1987 budget totaling $596,070, which was an increase of only $6,205 over the 1986 budget. One of the biggest reasons for the small increase was that only $20,000 was allocated to the contingency fund, down dramatically from $42,926 allocated for 1986. The total police department budget was $164,806, an increase of $12,857 over 1886. Most of the increase was attributed to police salaries that were added to by $11,577. Jackie Smith of rural Belle Plaine won the national award in overall gardening in a contest sponsored by Organic Gardening magazine. An editor and photographer were sent to the Smith farm northwest of Belle Plaine to study the garden and talk to Smith, who had over 850 varieties of fruit, vegetables and perennials in ďŹ ve acres of garden and orchards that she had been tending to for 13 years. Smith and her husband, Jerry, and their daughter, Sara, raised sheep and crops on their farm. Belle Plaine native Wayne Stier, who was now living in Hawaii, had written his third book that was now in bookstores. â€œHawaii Blueâ€? was about the multi-cultured island. Stierâ€™s other two books â€“ â€œWide Eyes in Burma and Thailand: Finding Your Wayâ€? and â€œTime Travel in the Malay Crescentâ€? were guidebooks based on Stierâ€™s ďŹ rsthand experiences of Asia. The Belle Plaine High School boysâ€™ basketball team captured the Gaylord Holiday Tournament that Friday and Saturday, defeating Cedar MountainMorgan 55-53 in the ďŹ rst game and Gaylord 51-41 in the championship. Against Cedar Mountain-Morgan, Matt Lenz had 22 points and 11 rebounds, while Jeff Johnson added 15 points and nine rebounds. Johnson was the top scorer against Gay-
lord with 10 points. Some of the top news stories in Belle Plaine in the 1986 Year in Review included Pharmacist Dale Otto opening Otto Drug Express and Gift Store in February in the Waldheim building on East Main Street, the former spot of Cloutier Design Services, which the owners, Marilyn and Jeff Cloutier, had relocated to Eden Prairie. Also in 1986, after 12 years of operating the Sears Store in Belle Plaine, Agnes Chard sold the business to Alice and Wayne Mediger of Le Sueur. That same year, Earl and Harriet Gerdes sold their shoe business to Ralph and Sally French, and Tim and Marilyn Moriarty of Eden Prairie purchased Hennen Jewelry from Ron Hennen, who had owned the store since 1956.
60 Years Ago (1956)
The appearance on the Edgar Bergen TV quiz show, â€œDo You Trust Your Wife,â€? of a former Belle Plaine boy, Russel Bromaghim and his wife, Erma, was enjoyed by quite a number of Belle Plaine folks. The Bromaghims were invited to participate due to the name of their place, Santa Claus, Ariz. William Devine was able to leave University Hospital to spend Christmas with his family. After the holiday, he returned to the hospital and wasnâ€™t expected to be released until spring. Lila Jane Hert, daughter of Mrs. Thomas R. Hert, became the bride of Edwin William Linner Jr., son of Mr. and Mrs. E.W. Linner of Stillwater. The bride was a former Blakeley girl. The new Shell Oil Station at the south side of Highway 169 opened for business. Armin Koepp was operating the station, leasing the property from

Carl Johnson. Mrs. P.H. Casey, mother of Mrs. F.J. Keup of Belle Plaine, died at her home in Hammond, Wis., at the age of 88. The New Year brought our ďŹ rst zero weather, the mercury dropping to minus-3 the morning of the ďŹ rst. The absence of snow made it an unusual Jan. 1. The State Bank of Belle Plaine announced that it would raise interest rates on time certiďŹ cates as of Jan. 2, 1957. The new interest rate would be 3 percent for time certiďŹ cates of deposit for 12 months. Miss Karen Lynch, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas H. Lynch of Belle Plaine, became the bride of Mr. William Bryan Torp, son of Mrs. Gudrun Torp of Minneapolis. The Scott County Board of Supervisors selected Francis Wermerskirchen as the outstanding conservation farmer for 1956. Since all the notes against Zion Lutheran Church on Benton were paid during 1956, the building committee announced that on New Yearâ€™s Eve there would be held a special noteburning ceremony, to be conducted during the intermission between the German and the English New Yearâ€™s Eve services. Peter J. Pung, 66, husband of the former Mary Riley of Belle Plaine, died at Brooke Army Hospital, San Antonio, Texas. Mrs. Henry Busch of St. Benedict passed away at her farm home at the age of 74. Funeral services were conducted for Mrs. J. Henry Harms, Norwood, with burial in Zion Lutheran Cemetery of Benton Township. She was 77 years old. Dr. O.P. Idsvoog, Norwood veterinarian, was in the Glencoe hospital with injuries received when his car rolled over on a county road about seven miles south of Norwood at the Elmo Downs farm. The Belle Plaine Progressive Homemakers elected Mrs. Mark Murphy leader for 1957. Mr. and Mrs. Gilbert Tengblad were given a party in honor of their 25th wedding anniversary.
Belle Plaine gave a noisy but well ordered welcome to the new year. Church bells rang and band members were out with their instruments to serenade the new year. Peter Larson died at his home in Jessenland Township at the age of 83. H.H. Lehnert raised broomstraw on his farm in Blakeley and took a load to the city for making into brooms. Homegrown broomstraw lasted longer than others. Dr. D.W. Wilson went to St. Paul to commence his second term as a state legislator. Everett Larson of Gotha went to St. Paul to take a six-week course in creamery management. Charles Joyce died at the home of his sister in St. Paul. The funeral was held from his parish church in Jessenland. Miss Florence Johnson, former Belle Plaine girl, was married at the home of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Gust Johnson, at Buffalo to Edward Erickson of New York City. Creamery raids were still going on, but at the Cologne creamery the thieves found the operator waiting with a shotgun, and they made a hasty departure. Another attempt was made to break into the Bongard creamery. H.C. Hespenheide, Blakeley Townshipâ€™s sole survivor of the Civil War, was making ready to celebrate his 88th birthday that month. The Henry Schultz family took occupancy of their new farm home. It was the largest home in this section. A gasoline explosion in the George B. Schrupp home in Henderson brought death to Mrs. Schrupp and severe injury to her daughter, Ella. The two women were cleaning clothes in the bathroom when the gasoline they were using suddenly exploded, blowing out windows and starting a ďŹ re that was quickly extinguished. C.A. Christenson was named head of the local Masonic lodge. Other ofďŹ cers were E.O. Peterson, M.O. Hagen, F.B. Hillstrom, W.E. Moore, W.J. Gatz, W.E. Bromaghim, M.H. Doyle and R.R. Mahler.
120 Years Ago (1896)
Dear Editor, My adult children are now in there 30's, they got bussed to school from the same block I live on now. My grandchildren are in grade school; they are expected to walk to school. It's obvious on its face that a child a bit over 3 feet tall is not realistically going to walk in the snow, on the street, in trafďŹ c to school this far, 4,496 feet on Google Maps. Walk up that hill and tell me it's not far. The only cross walks on State Street - County Road 6, are at City Hall and at Highway 25, 1.14 miles if they go to the legal cross walk. They are expected to walk in the street east on Forest to Elk, walk south up Elk Street (there is a sidewalk on Elk put in last year, but two car pads cut across the walk so kids can't actually use the sidewalk, disappointing waste of money) walk east up Court Street, then walk south up Eagle Street, cross County Road 6 and proceed up Eagle Street to Main Street. From that point on there are cross walks and sidewalks to school. It's extremely unsafe to send small children, boys or girls on this walk to school but it's exactly what the school board says they are supposed to do. No cross walks and not a
blinky light anywhere on County Road 6 where the kids are supposed to cross in the street, in the snow, in trafďŹ c. What are they thinking? Some of the local moms have complained to the School Board and apparently the school is complaining about the price to bus the kids. (Less than the price of a small car I am told.) No children should be walking to school where there are no crosswalks and no sidewalks. Some of the moms in the neighborhood have worked out a deal to pay a day care provider who gets one of the white busses to take the kids to school. The children that go to Oak Crest are late every single day because the white busses can't work out a way to get them to school on time. It's simply unconscionable that the School Board even dreams of having tiny children walking on the streets in the snow in between the cars in trafďŹ c with no crosswalks to school. They should be ashamed. The local moms who are paying for the bus tell me they feel ripped off, they feel their children's safety is not important. My kids got busses in the snow, why are my grandkids supposed to pay for their own bussing from the same place? Tim Olson

The grain market had advanced, wheat reaching 72 cents. The special election for the issuing of bonds for a new school building carried 148-59. Over 200 couples tried to get into Weibelerâ€™s Hall for the New Yearâ€™s dance. The crowd was so large that many had to be turned back. What snow there was had entirely disappeared by New Yearâ€™s Day. The weather was so ďŹ ne on the holiday that the Valley Cornet Band gave an open air concert from the large balcony of the Belle Plaine Hotel. Arnold Smith, former Belle Plaine man, joined with Mr. Wilson of Le Sueur in taking over the controlling interest in the Le Sueur ďŹ‚our mill. Patrick GrifďŹ n, Blakeley Township pioneer, died at the age of 77. A native of Limerick, Ireland, he located on the farm in Blakeley in 1854, and it was on this homestead that he died. The Twin Cities was experiencing a ďŹ nancial panic. A group of banks failed in one week.

Year in Review (continued from page 2)
tion 2AA championship game at Minnesota State University, Mankato. Belle Plaine, champion of the Minnesota River Conference and North Subsection, finished the season with an overall record of 19-9. Gaining allconference honors for the Tigers were seniors Luke Narveson and Mitchel Stier, and junior Brody Curtiss. Senior Branden Schulz was honorable mention. * The Belle Plaine City Council unanimously awarded the bid for the city’s 2016 street and utility improvement project to Chard Tiling and Excavating of Belle Plaine. Chard’s bid was $1,169,798.60, which was $155,470 below the city engineer’s construction estimate of $1,325,268.25. The only other bid received was from RAW Construction of Faribault at $1,530.581.10. The 2016 project would consist of street and infrastructure improvements on Forest Street East, as well as one block of Oak Street North and two blocks of Court Street East. Also included was the construction of a sidewalk on the south side of Forest Street to the street’s eastern terminus. *A record-high temperature of 70 degrees for March 12 resulted in an exceptionally large sea of green for Belle Plaine’s annual St. Patrick’s celebration downtown that day, with much of that greenery coming in the form of shorts and T-shirts. A first occurred when two girls were crowned Miss Shamrock rather than the customary one. Receiving crowns of equal status were Belle Plaine High School juniors Rachel Fahey and Lauren Murphy, the only two contestants in the contest. Margaret McCue Morrison, emcee of the post-parade program, explained that the judges concluded that it was too difficult of a choice between the two girls to choose just one. Fahey and Murphy said they look forward to representing Belle Plaine “together” at parades and other functions in the coming year. Emerging from the parade of clans as the Most Authentic-Dressed Leprechaun was Chris Fahey, who won $100 in the process. The grand marshals of the parade were Bob and Sue Fahey. Finding the hidden Shamrock medallion were the trio of Colin Schultz, Lauren Johnson and Joey Gorman. Four clues were necessary before the coin was found at the base of the steps of the corkscrew slide at Fountain Park. *The Belle Plaine High School speech team placed second at the Minnesota River Conference speech meet at Jordan on March 19. Earning all-conference honors for Belle Plaine were juniors Hannah Burmeister and Jonah Meyer. Senior Patrick Selly was honorable mention. Qualifying for the state meet were Burmeister, Isaiah Trimbo, Selly and Neil Bigaouette. *Belle Plaine High School graduate Michael Kroells and Le Sueur-Henderson graduate Brett Pfarr, both juniors on the University of Minnesota wrestling team, were the two Gophers who earned All-American status at the NCAA Championships at Madison Square Garden in New York City. *After five conference crowns, four section titles and one state championship in her six years as head coach of the Belle Plaine High School volleyball team, Cassie Koch resigned. Her resignation came just four months after leading the program to its first state championship. “I submitted my resignation after confirming my husband and I are expecting our second child interested persons of the date of hearing on the objection. Unless objections are filed, and unless the Court orders otherwise, the personal representative has the full power to administer the estate, including, after thirty (30) days from the issuance of letters testamentary, the power to sell, encumber, lease, or distribute any interest in real estate owned by the decedent. Notice is further given that, subject to Minn. Stat. section 524.3-801, all creditors having claims against the decedent's estate are required to present the claims to the personal representative or to the Court within four (4) months after the date of this notice or the claims will be barred.

in September. BPHS has always been flexible and supportive of my needs away from the court, but it was ultimately time for me to take back the time I dedicate to the program year-round and dedicate it to my growing family,” Koch stated. *With approved spending outweighing anticipated income, the Belle Plaine School Board stemmed the tide of deficit spending in a move that would cost several probationary teachers, para-professionals and an administrator their jobs for the 2016-17 school year. Over 20 members of the school district’s staff and students watched the school board unanimously approve budget cuts that would save the Belle Plaine School District about $434,860 this year. *Members of the Belle Plaine High School band and choir programs were confident they had the ability to perform well at the Section 2 Solo/Ensemble contest on March 30. But the results were better than even they might have expected. For the first time in memory, all of Belle Plaine’s entries – in both choir and band competitions – earned superior ratings, the highest rating possible. April *The Belle Plaine Historical Society agreed to facilitate the Belle Plaine Farmers Market beginning with the 2016 market season. Lisa Fahey and Diane Skelley had been overseeing the local market since they founded it in 2009. *A familiar face to many area residents opened a new salon in downtown Belle Plaine. Paula Olsen of Belle Plaine opened The Hair Loft at 103 Main Street West on April 2. *Countless hours of shooting hoops on her driveway at home and the basket hanging over her bedroom door paid off for Ciara Fahey of Belle Plaine. On April 2, she won the girls’ 10-yearold division at the 42nd annual Knights of Columbus State Free Throw Championships at Cathedral High School in St. Cloud. Ciara, the daughter of Jodi and Jon Fahey, earned the state championship after making 24 of 25 free throws. *A 68-year-old man and 67year-old woman were found beaten and dead in a Shakopee home midnight Tuesday (April 12). The man was identified as Terry Weimer and the woman was Renee (Hillstrom) Ahrens, formerly of Belle Plaine. According to the Shakopee Police Department, Shakopee officers, at the request of a family member, checked their welfare at a residence in the 1100 block of Dakota Street. In the residence, officers found Weimer and Ahrens dead. They had suffered apparent blunt force trauma injuries. The suspect was the deceased man’s 40-year-old son, who was from Waseca. When authorities went to the suspect’s residence, he barricaded himself into a room with a firearm. For several hours, negotiators tried to talk him into coming out of the residence and turning himself in. At approximately noon Tuesday, the suspect was found deceased at the scene by a selfinflicted gunshot wound. *After less than two years on the job, Belle Plaine City Administrator Holly Kreft announced she was resigning, effective May 16. “I have accepted a position as executive director of Charlson Meadows, a private foundation in Victoria. I wasn’t seeking another position, but this is my dream job,” Kreft stated. “The new position will give me a chance to continue to serve others, but with more flexibility in my schedule and new opportunities.” Mayor Mike Pingalore said Kreft will be missed. “Holly over the last couple of years has helped move this city forward. Her economic development background has allowed us to create opportunities to enhance our community. The city has many projects underway and new ones being discussed. Holly’s ability to network along with building relationships has given many of these projects a starting point.” The city council decided to give itself most of the summer to hire a replacement for Kreft, and appointed Finance Director Dawn Meyer as acting city administrator. *Ryan Dungey clinched another Supercross season championship on April 30 by finishing fourth in the 450SX main event at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J. Dungey, 26, is the son of Troy and Michelle Dungey of Belle Plaine. He is married to Lindsay (Siegle), a 2009 graduate of Belle Plaine High School. The 2016 Belle Plaine Year in Review will continue in next Wednesday’s Herald.
Top 10 (Continued from page 1)
(4) Belle Plaine Man Fatally Run Down – A Belle Plaine man walking along Highway 169 was hit and killed before sunrise on Sunday morning, Aug. 14. Investigators were looking for the driver and vehicle involved in the crash. Derek J. Fath, 29, was killed near the intersection of Highway 169 and Belle Plaine Trail. The crash was reported at 5:15 a.m. The vehicle that hit Fath was in 169’s northbound lanes, according to the Minnesota State Patrol. Ashley Hiemstra, Fath’s girlfriend, said he was on his way home from a friend’s house. Hiemstra and Fath had a 1-year-old son, Tucker. Friends and family took to social media to mourn Fath’s tragic death and urge whoever hit him to call police and admit they hit Fath. Authorities still have not announced any leads in the case.
(5) 1966 BPHS Homecoming Queen Murdered – A 67-year-old woman and 68-year-old man were found beaten
and dead in a Shakopee home on April 12. The woman was identified as Renee (Hillstrom) Ahrens, formerly of Belle Plaine and Belle Plaine High School’s 1966 homecoming queen. The man was Terry Weimer of Shakopee. According to the Shakopee Police Department, Shakopee officers, at the request of a family member, checked their welfare at a residence in the 1100 block of Dakota Street. In the residence, officers found Ahrens, a retired school teacher, and Weimer dead. They had suffered apparent blunt force trauma injuries. The suspect was the deceased man’s 40-year-old son, who was from Waseca. During the investigation, police said it was determined that a vehicle registered to Ahrens was missing. The vehicle was located later Tuesday morning unoccupied in the city of Waseca. When authorities went to the suspect’s residence, he barricaded himself into a room with a firearm. For several hours, negotiators tried to talk him into coming out of the residence and turning himself in. At approximately noon Tuesday, the suspect was found deceased at the scene as a result of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. (6) Election Day – Three of the five seats on the Belle Plaine City Council will have different people sitting in them when the first regular meeting of 2017 takes place on Tuesday, Jan. 3. Four years after being elected mayor over incumbent Tim Lies, Mike Pingalore’s bid for a third two-year term was blocked on Nov. 8 by a large contingent of Chris Meyer supporters in what was a near record election turnout for Belle Plaine. Joining Meyer on the new-look city council will be Ben Stier and Theresa McDaniel, along with incumbents Cary Coop and Paul Chard, the latter of whom’s seat was not up for election this year. Stier was easily the top vote-getter in a four-way race for two four-year terms, in which voters could vote for up to two candidates. Stier received 2,083 votes, while Coop was second with 1,181. Incumbent Henry Pressley Jr. was 77 votes short of keeping his seat on the council with 1,104. The fourth candidate, Nickole Shetka, got 835 votes. Meanwhile, incumbent Gary Trost, a veteran of the city council for nearly two decades, was defeated for the one two-year term on the council by challenger McDaniel in what was the closest race on the local ballot. McDaniel harvested 1,506 votes, 18 more than Trost’s 1,488. Belle Plaine joined the tidal wave of GOP support for Donald Trump and running mate Mike Pence that washed across the Midwest. Belle Plaine and neighboring communities backed Republicans across the board. Voters in Belle Plaine and the surrounding area backed Trump over Democrat Hillary Clinton in large numbers. He beat Clinton in Belle Plaine by more than a 2-to-1 margin, 2,034 to 1,005. Across Scott County, voters favored Trump over Clinton, 39,948 to 28,502. Clinton did carry Minnesota and won the national popular vote by some 2 1/2 million votes. But Trump won where it counts most – the electoral vote. (7) High School Teams Make State – The longest season and postseason run in Belle Plaine High School baseball history came to an end on the longest day of the year (summer solstice on June 20) when the Tigers lost to Minnehaha Academy 5-1 in the state Class 2A championship game at a warm and sunsplashed Target Field. The Tigers, who were playing in their first state baseball tournament in program history, won their first two games in St. Cloud to earn their date at Target Field, defeating Fairmont 1-0 in the quarterfinals and Maple Lake 6-4 in the semifinals. Along with a section tile, the Tigers also won the Minnesota River Conference title for a third year in a row with a record of 13-1 and finished the season with an overall record of 25-2. In February, the Belle Plaine High School one-act play, “Anatomy of Gray,” captured the section championship and went on to earn its 12th starred performance rating at the state level in program history when it competed in the Minnesota State High School Class 1A One-Act Play Festival at O’Shaughnessy Auditorium on the campus of St. Catherine University in St. Paul. For a second year in a row, the Scott West wrestling team won two of three matches in the Minnesota State Class 2A Team Tournament at Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul. The Panthers, the No. 4 seed, defeated No. 5 seed Wabasso-Red Rock Central 35-25 in the quarterfinals before having to square off against No. 1 seed and unbeaten KassonMantorville in the semifinals about 30 minutes later, losing 36-18. Scott West came back to double up No. 2 seed Simley 40-20 for third place. This past fall, the BPHS football team qualified for the state tournament for a second year in a row, and the cross country girls’ team qualified for state as a team for the first time since 1978. (8) Bar-B-Q Days – It was summery but far from downright hot for the 2016 Bar-B-Q Days celebration in Belle Plaine July 15-17, making for comfortable conditions from the start of festivities Friday evening through Sunday’s fireworks display. The only blemish in the weather was a thunderstorm that rolled though town late Saturday night into early Sunday morning. That was a major factor to lower than usual sales in the Beer Garden for a Saturday night. The Beef Stand had total sales of $38,226.17 compared to $36,413.95 last year. Sandwiches cost $3.50 apiece, the same as in recent years. The Beer Garden, where the cost of most beverages was similar to last year, had sales totalling $48,180.50, which was down from $56,757.65 last year. Carnival ride sales this year totalled $61,936.00, up from $59,034.50 last year. Rachael Eliason was crowned the new Miss Belle Plaine, succeeding McKenzie Koepp. Also receiving crowns were Makayla Anderson (first princess), Alyssa Neisen (second princess) and Hailey Witt (miss congeniality). Bill Kruschke was the grand marshal of the parade.
(9) Duo Queens and Warm Temps for St. Pat’s – A record-high temperature of 70 degrees for March 12 resulted
in an exceptionally large sea of green for Belle Plaine’s annual St. Patrick’s celebration downtown that day, with much of that greenery coming in the form of shorts and T-shirts. A first occurred when two girls were crowned Miss Shamrock rather than the customary one. Receiving crowns of equal status were Belle Plaine High School juniors Rachel Fahey and Lauren Murphy, the only two contestants in the contest. Margaret McCue Morrison, emcee of the post-parade program, explained that the judges concluded that it was too difficult of a choice between the two girls to choose just one. (10) Another City Administrator Search – After less than two years on the job, Belle Plaine City Administrator Holly Kreft announced she would be resigning in May. “I have accepted a position as executive director of Charlson Meadows, a private foundation in Victoria. I wasn’t seeking another position, but this is my dream job,” Kreft stated. “The new position will give me a chance to continue to serve others, but with more flexibility in my schedule and new opportunities.” Mayor Mike Pingalore said Kreft will be missed. “Holly over the last couple of years has helped move this city forward. Her economic development background has allowed us to create opportunities to enhance our community.” Following a summer-long search process, the city opted to hire a former U.S. Army officer of more than a dozen years and current Tracy City Administrator Mike Votca to be Belle Plaine next city administrator. Votca, 39, who had been the city administrator at Tracy since the summer of 2013, emerged from a pool of 20 candidates to become the top choice.

Matt Nelson, Noah Hastings and Jack Otto each had two points and Dylan Schumacher one. Herman had nine rebounds and two assists, while Biagaouette had six rebounds and three assists. Curtiss also had six rebounds to go along with one steal. Jordan 83, Tigers 58 The Tigers trailed the MRCleading Hubmen by just three points at halftime but could get nothing going in the second half as Jordan quickly pulled away by double-digits and kept rolling en route to a 25-point victory at a packed and energized Jordan High School gym Thursday night. In the words of Belle Plaine coach Paul Fogarty – “nothing went the Tigers’ way in the second half.”
Jordan 6-8 senior forward Jimmy Volbrecht, who became the 12th player in Jordan school history to score his 1,000th career point in the second half, led all scorers with 31 points. He also had eight rebounds as Jordan improved its record to 6-0 overall. Curtiss netted 20 points for Belle Plaine and Hastings and Herman added 12 and nine, respectively.

Breeding Bull Introduce to Mankato Area Bison Herd The first breeding bull has arrived at Minneopa State Park near Mankato, bringing to 15 the number of bison in the park, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. The yearling bull comes from Theodore Roosevelt National Park in North Dakota and spent a month quarantined at the Minnesota Zoo in Apple Valley. “This is a milestone,” said DNR regional naturalist Alex Watson. “Nearly 130 years after the last wild and free bison disappeared from Minnesota and narrowly escaped extinction, this bull symbolizes the success of past conservation, and the need to always look forward.” Eleven bison were reintroduced to Minneopa in the fall of 2015. The herd expanded to 14 with the birth of three calves in 2016. It’s hoped the newlyacquired bull will successfully breed bison cows within the existing herd, strengthening the herd’s genetic similarities with its free-ranging ancestors from two centuries ago. The bison are part of the Minnesota Bison Conservation Herd, managed through a formal agreement between the DNR and Minnesota Zoo. The partners are working together to preserve American plains bison and plan to grow the herd at several locations, including Blue Mounds State Park, Minneopa State Park and the Minnesota Zoo. The goal is a 500-animal herd at multiple locations. “The herd is not yet large enough to sustain reproduction on its own, so this new addition is very valuable,” Fisher said. Watson offered some tips for viewing the bison. “The new bull may be only a year and half old, but he is already the same size as the adult cows, which might make him hard to identify. He has a noticeably longer beard and thicker horns that point outward. Female bison usually have horns that curve in. The new bull also has a temporary ear tag required for transportation from North Dakota that will eventually be removed. For now, this makes him easy to spot if you see the tag.”

Changing Weather Creating Unpredictable and Unsafe Ice Due to widely variable weather conditions across much of the state, ice is deteriorating rapidly and creating potentially dangerous conditions for anglers, snowmobilers, skiers and others planning to recreate on the ice over the holidays. According to recreation safety specialists with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, ice that formed quickly during the recent sub-zero temperatures is now thawing and refreezing, which leads to extremely weak ice that is dangerously deceptive. “The calendar nor air temperatures can be used as indicators of ice thickness or safety,” said Lisa Dugan, DNR recreation

safety outreach coordinator. “There are many variables to consider, including whether a waterbody has a current or run-off, the freeze-thaw cycle, and snow cover. River have been especially problematic, as water levels have continued to drop even after surface ice formed, creating dangerous air pockets under the ice.” A layer of insulating snow, coupled with above-average temperatures, means new ice takes longer to form, Dugan explained, adding that ice that has thawed and refrozen is only half as strong as new, clear ice. Conservation officers across the state are reporting vehicles, snowmobiles and ATVs going through the ice on lakes where ice may be relatively thick in one area, with as little as 4-5 inches nearby. “No ice should ever be considered 100 percent safe, and checking ice thickness every 150 feet is imperative when on notoriously inconsistent early ice,” said Lt. Lisa Kruse. “Icerelated fatalities have averaged just under four per year over the past five ice seasons. Half of those deaths occurred with someone operating a snowmobile or ATV. Side-by-sides are

becoming more popular, and weigh much more than a typical ATV, so more ice is needed than operators may realize.” The cold facts about ice: – You can’t judge ice conditions by appearance or thickness – other factors including water depth, size of waterbody, currents, snow cover and local weather all combine to determine its strength. – Ice seldom freezes uniformly. It may be 9 inches thick in one location and only an inch or two just a few feet away. – Ice formed over flowing water and currents is often dangerous – ice along streams, springs, and channels between lakes, bridges or aeration systems is usually weaker due to faster current. “The best present you can give your family and friends this holiday season is your presence. Think twice before going out on unsafe ice,” Dugan said. Additional ice safety tips and thickness guidelines are available at: mndnr.gov/icesafety.

BPHS Alum Brings Invitation to Chard Companies, Staff Study Science in Sunshine State Provide B.P. Food Shelfâ€™s A Belle Plaine High School alum came visited an old stomping ground with an invitation for students interested in science to consider spending six weeks in the sunshine state this summer. Thursday (Dec. 22), Katie (Kurtz) Dunleavy visited a BPHS chemistry class to promote the Student Science Training Program (SSTP) at the University of Florida in Gainesville this summer. The six-week program is for incoming high school seniors interested in working on research in chemistry, biology or physics with graduate students like her and professors. The program runs from June 11 through July 29. There is no cost to apply for the SSTP program. The only cost is travel to Gainesville Fla. and food for the six weeks. Students will stay in dormitories on campus and funding may be available to help with living expenses during the six weeks. Students selected for the program will work on ongoing projects they can choose from, working in a lab with graduate students and University of Florida professors. Dunleavy, a 2008 BPHS graduate and the daughter of Laurie Devine and Marty Kurtz, is working on her doctorate in chemistry. She is studying the
cell, and then when they need to do their job they immediately make a structure to complete its task.â€? These naturally unstructured proteins are commonly involved in many diseases we currently donâ€™t know a whole lot about. Diseases like Alzheimerâ€™s and Parkinsonâ€™s are somewhat dependent on the malfunctioning of the quick folding process of these unstructured proteins, Dunleavy said. â€œI study how the hydration and diffusion of water molecules at the protein surface is involved in this protein folding process,â€? she said. Dunleavy said the six-week study offers students interested in studying the sciences â€œan amazing opportunityâ€? that will help them get into college. She said the six-week study will offer them insight on the sciences and potential science-related career options. BPHS science instructor Brad Peterson jumped at Dunleavyâ€™s request to present information about the program to juniors. â€œMany students might not know about these opportunities and or they might not think that former students would be doing such fascinating work in the areas of science and technology,â€?

Most proteins are structured all of the time, like hemoglobin, a commonly known protein found in the blood. However, there are many proteins that form their structure immediately prior to functioning, these proteins are naturally unstructured when not doing their function and hanging out in the cell,â€? she said.

(continued from page 1) back to begin soaking it in. â€œIt was kind of crazy,â€? he said. â€œI was kind of excited.â€? Trimbo hadnâ€™t taken any practice exams, hadnâ€™t attended any special training for how to do well on the ACT. Instead, he relied on his skills, intelligence and interest in learning. Trimbo likes to read about many different subjects. Not really one to spend a lot of time cramming for exams, he tends to soak in knowledge and put it to good use. â€œI wouldnâ€™t call it studying,â€? Smith said. â€œHe does like to read a lot.â€? Smith said school staff told her Isaiah is the only BPHS student known to ace the ACT. Belle Plaine Junior-Senior High School Principal Dave Kreft said less than 1 percent of students who take the ACT ace it. That places Trimbo in rarified academic air and gives him a good chance to gain acceptance to almost any college he chooses. Trimbo is accustomed to academic success. He is well-rooted on the senior high schoolâ€™s A & B honor rolls. He told a few friends of his success. Naturally, they kidded him with friendly ribbings about devious tactics to earn the lofty score. â€œThey didnâ€™t really think I cheated,â€? Trimbo said. â€œThey just wanted to tease me.â€?

Though he does very well in it, English classes are Trimboâ€™s least favorite on the schedule. Smith theory is her son favors classes that are more in the black-and-white realm of study than deciphering how a verse from Shakespeare is properly interpreted. But Trimbo is far from just a very good student. He is one of those students schools love to have â€“ academically intelligent and well-rounded. He plays the drums, is in the school band. He played in the pit band for the fall musical, â€œBye Bye Birdie.â€? Trimbo is on the speech team, competing in the discussion category.
