City Puts Finishing Touches on Veterans Park Display Resolution, Final Vote Next
Dome Work Workers and crane operators lowered a 180,000-plus pound dome onto a new commercial building at Jim’s Apple Barn on Highway 169 just northeast of Belle Plaine in St. Lawrence Township Friday morning (Feb. 10). The addition to the business that markets itself as “Minnesota’s Largest Candy Store” is 62-feet tall and 60-feet across. The building permit for the new building lists its value as $500,000. Robert Wagner, owner of Jim’s Apple Barn, said the equipment in it will be worth just over $500,000. Wagner declined a request for specifics on the new attraction. It is scheduled to open May 25.
Brittney Carlson (left) and her sister, Tanya (right), met with U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota Saturday, Jan. 21, at the Women’s March. Klobuchar greeted the Minnesotans who traveled overnight to the National Mall in Washington, D.C. for the rally and march by the White House. About 500,000 people, mostly women, rallied in opposition to newly-inaugurated President Donald Trump’s policies on women, the environment and immigration.
Belle Plaine Area Women Wanted Their Voices Heard Carlson Sisters Traveled to ‘Women’s March’ in Nation’s Capital
Their trip to Washington, D.C. was initially planned to celebrate Democrat Hillary Clinton becoming the United States’ next president, the first woman to hold the nation’s highest elected office. But the way the presidential election unfolded, Belle Plaine High School graduates Brittney and Tanya Carlson couldn’t sit idly by and accept the results without taking action. The daughters of Terry and Randy Carlson, Tanya and her younger sister, Brittney, were among a group of Minnesotans who traveled to Washington, D.C. in about a dozen coach buses Jan. 20 to be a part of over 500,000 people – mostly women – who rallied in protest of newly inaugurated President Donald Trump’s positions on women and his policies on im-
migration, economics and the environment. When the Republican Trump won the presidency, without winning the popular vote, Tanya Carlson said she and her sister decided at the last minute to pay the $250 per-person fee to make the trip to the rally and march in Washington, D.C. “They are both strong, independent, well-informed young women,” said Randy Carlson, a longtime BPHS math teacher and coach. “They will work for what they believe is right and are willing to be active in their beliefs.” Tanya and Brittney’s parents were among the estimated 90,000-plus people at a similar rally in St. Paul at the state capitol, one of several sister marches around the world. The stated intent of marchers was to promote civil rights, gender equality, diversity and inclusion. “It’s just something I had to do for myself,” Tanya Carlson, a school counselor in the BOLD (Bird Island, Olivia, Lake Lillian District) School District, said of the trip to Washington,
by Dan Ruud As early as next Tuesday (Feb. 21), the Belle Plaine City Council is expected to put its final stamp of approval on a resolution establishing a limited public forum at Veterans Memorial Park in Belle Plaine. On Feb. 6, before one of the largest audiences ever to attend a city council meeting in Belle Plaine, the council voted 3-2 to pursue a limited public forum at Veterans Memorial Park. Mayor Chris Meyer directed the city attorney to draft the final language for the forum, which has since been completed. That language is summarized below. The cross honoring veterans at the park was removed last month by the city and Belle Plaine Veterans Club after members of the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF), based in Wisconsin, demanded that the action be taken because the law clearly states that religious symbols are not permitted on government-owned property. Belle Plaine City Attorney Bob Vose recommended that the cross be removed to avoid potentially costly legal action by the FFRF. Following immense outrage by the public, particularly on social media, the council was convinced to rethink its stand on the cross issue and to soon return it to the memorial at Veterans Park. Andy Parrish of Belle Plaine, a spokesperson for the return of the cross, addressed the council at length at the Feb. 6 meeting. He then introduced Doug Wardlow, an attorney for Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), which has agreed to represent Belle Plaine (without charge) should any legal action be taken against the city for allowing the cross to be returned to Veterans Park. Wardlow stood by Parrish’s statements and described the group’s limited public forum proposal as a sound legal tool to defeat the FFRF. However, when asked, Wardlow could not fully assure that lawsuits or

Vets Eager to Return Cross A Defend Veterans Park Facebook page was established recently to help rally support for the return of the cross to Veterans Park. Its supporters look forward to the day when the cross honoring Belle Plaine’s war dead will be legally reinstalled. The following was posted on the group’s page following the council’s 3-2 vote last week to establish a limited public forum at the park, which will allow for the cross to be reinstalled: The Grave marker of the Fallen Soldier will not be reattached until the city gets their new policy in place (which will happen at the next council meeting on Feb. 21st). BUT IT IS GOING BACK ON! Looking at the last weekend in February. We will post here as soon as we have a day and time so those that want to be there can! We thank you all for the overwhelming support! NOW LET’S SUPPORT OUR CITY! At the top of the Defend Veterans Park Facebook page, it states: “A group of out-of-state atheists demanded a statue of a vet be removed from a city park. Our veterans defended us. Now we need to defend them.” Although it was not the kneeling veteran or the rifle that the FFRF sought removal of (just the cross), Andy Parrish of the Defend Veterans Park Facebook page said “it’s open to interpretation.” “Mine is if you remove a portion of it, then the entire monu-
ment is not there, and therefore, it is not displayed as intended.” The Freedom From Religion Foundation, which successfully sought the removal of the cross, issued a press release dated Feb. 7, the day after the Belle Plaine City Council’s vote to allow the eventual return of the cross through a limited public forum policy. In summary, the press release states that “the Freedom From Religion Foundation is troubled about a Minnesota city backtracking on its removal of a cross from a public veterans park.” “FFRF is very concerned by this turn of events. It finds the new policy to be subterfuge to keep the cross at a government veterans memorial. The purpose behind the newly proposed limited public forum is religiously motivated – to keep a Christian cross on government property – and thus calls into question the constitutionality of the policy.” The press release also states that if the proposal goes forward, FFRF will also consider proposing a memorial of its own to atheists in foxholes. The full text of its proposed display in Belle Plaine would read: “In honor of atheists in foxholes and the countless freethinkers who have served this country with honor and distinction. With hope that in the future hu-

Longtime B.P. Businessman Al Hennen Dies Alvin Hennen, who operated Hennen Super Service in Belle Plaine for nearly four decades, died Monday at The Belle Plaine Lutheran Home. He was 81. Hennen, well known to many in Belle Plaine for his popular gas station and auto service center along South Meridian Street, was one of the original members of the Belle Plaine Ambulance Service, for which he served 16 years. He was also a member of the Belle Plaine Knights of Columbus. Tamara Schmidt and her husband Mike (who was out on a delivery) picked a busy week to Hennen’s obituary appears on open The Fabulous Flower Market at 102 Main Street W.

A Busy Time of Year
The Belle Plaine robotics team used last year’s robot to deliver the game ball to center court before Friday evening’s (Feb. 10) varsity basketball game between Belle Plaine and Mayer Lutheran. The Cyber Tigers and their new robot will be at a non-scored robotics event Saturday at Eagan High School. The sectional competition is April 6-8 at the University of Minnesota.
Brittany Teal, a member of the staff at Emma Krumbee’s Floral, was busy designing an arrangement at the flower shop in Emma Krumbee’s General Store Sunday (Feb. 12). The flower shop’s staff prepared dozens of arrangements and hundreds of roses for Valentine’s Day giving during the past week. Valentine’s Day is the top holiday for flowers, just edging out Mother’s Day, said Mary Jo Morris, the flower shop’s general manager.
Cyber Tigers Preparing for ‘Bag Day,’ Sectional Competition The members of the Belle Plaine High School robotics team will get a good look this weekend at how well prepared for the sectional competition they are later this spring. The Cyber Tigers will compete in a dress rehearsal competition Saturday (Feb. 18, 8 a.m.) at Eagan High School. The non-scored competition will give the BPHS team the opportunity to see first-hand what its robot does well, what it and the team don’t do as well and what teams which teams would make potentially good alliance partners for the upcoming sectional competition April 6-8. The Cyber Tigers, like all the other teams, are pressed for time. Tuesday (Feb. 21), each robotics team has to place their robot in a sealed plastic bag. The deadline gives all the robotics teams in the state the same amount of preparation time between the early-January announcement of the game (“Steamworks”) and its rules and the upcoming
sectional competitions around the state. The Cyber Tigers will compete at a sectional at Mariucci Arena. Working in alliances of three teams each, robots have a variety of tasks the teams in a “Steamworks” competition will attempt to earn points during matches. The tasks include launching balls into targets (fuel cells into a boiler), collecting gears and delivering them to an airship lift, and climbing aboard the airship. The Cyber Tigers figure the best way to efficiently earn points is deliver gears to the airship and climb aboard the airship rather than trying to shoot fuel pellets (plastic balls) into a target. “We did a lot of calculations,” said Thea Iverson, a junior on the Cyber Tigers. The Cyber Tigers have been working on making sure their robot smoothly picks up and transport gears and climbs. The team has also been working on weight distribution and traction
since the game will be played on a carpeted surface. Jeff Heine, the team’s coordinator, said the competition Saturday would give the Cyber Tigers a chance to scout potential alliance members. Cyber Tigers members will look for teams and robots that skillfully do tasks Belle Plaine’s robot and team may not do as well. Heine said the team has learned to more accurately decipher information other teams offer in the interest of selecting the best alliance members. Belle Plaine’s biggest need is monetary. Unlike previous years, where the team received a $5,000 grant to cover expenses for the robot, that grant was not available this year, Heine said. The school has covered the costs and the team is looking for willing donors to offset the unexpected expense. The Cyber Tigers are also using last year’s robot to hone driving skills.
Jordan School Mascot Survey Results Will Help Shape Decision It’s a decision the Jordan School Board has considered since four students raised the issue last fall. Now, the results of a community survey will help school board members decide whether to retain one or both of the high school’s mascots or find a new nickname and mascot. The school board will address survey results at its Feb. 27 meeting. “I was actually relieved that the board decided to conduct the community survey,” said Director Bob Malz. “It was one of those issues that to me was easily identifiable as a decision that would trigger strong emotional responses from traditionalistic alumni, those seeking a unified mascot, and current students. I really felt that all of their voices needed to be heard.” Next week (Monday, Feb. 20), results from a survey of community members are due. The survey was mailed out last week, the Jordan Independent recently reported. The school board will use the input from respondents in elementary, secondary and JHS alums when considering options. The survey asks respondents from the public their opinions, whether they favor the Hub-
St. Patrick’s Meeting Feb. 16 The Belle Plaine St. Patrick’s Committee will hold its next planning meeting for this year’s celebration on Thursday (Feb. 16) at Huck’s Shipwreck Saloon downtown. All committee members and bar/restaurant owners are asked to attend. It begins at 5:30 p.m. The “Sullivan Sisters” – Joanie Hartmann, Jeanette Gloege and Theresa Sullivan – will lead Belle Plaine’s annual St. Patrick’s Parade on Saturday, March 18.

men, the Jaguars, both, or if the district should seek a new mascot. “The board felt it was very important to solicit feedback and opinions from all our stakeholders, students, alumni and district residents,” said Director Deb Pauly, chairperson of the Jordan School Board. “I believe that the results of the survey itself will be what directs the discussion at the board table. Should the results be heavily skewed one direction or the other, it will lead to a more simple decision. Should the survey results be a near 50-50 split, it will be a more challenging and in-depth discussion.” Respondents are also asked if they have a strong opinion on the subject. Students that want to participate in the survey can do so via e-mail. “Our district is comprised of rational and intelligent residents. I am sure that with everything else going on in our world today that this issue would be
put into perspective. Some could choose to view this issue as negative conflict. I do not. I look at it as more of a healthy debate,” Malz said. “I am glad to see the passion on all sides of this issue. It means people care. They care about our tradition, our longstanding values and history, the passion of our youth and others to create change,” Pauly said. “We are fortunate to have such passionate, caring people fighting for a cause. When all is said and done, I believe that the people of Jordan will together and support the decision. They may not like it or be happy. That is human nature. In light of all the craziness going on in the world, I believe that they will refocus and put things in perspective. They will remember that our primary job is the education of our youth and they will put their feelings aside and will be about the work of supporting the best education possible for our most valued assets, our children.”

Walter W. Mathwig Walter Mathwig, 97, of Arlington passed away Monday, February 13, 2017 at the Arlington Good Samaritan Society. Funeral services will be 11 a.m. Thursday, February 16 at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Green Isle. Visitation will be 4–8 p.m. Wednesday and one hour prior to service time Thursday at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church. Interment with military honors will be in the Arlington Public Cemetery. Kolden Funeral Home of Arlington is handling the arrangements. Walter Wesley Mathwig was born November 6, 1919 in Green Isle Township, Sibley County to Arthur and Minnie (Sickmann) Mathwig. He was baptized on November 16, 1919 and confirmed on March 25, 1934 at Zion Lutheran Church, Green Isle Township. He attended rural schools. The years following Walter’s formal education were during the Great Depression. Jobs were scarce. Walter was not one to be still for long and found several different ways to earn money. He raised and sold Newfoundland dogs and told stories about the puppy he received via mail. He also trapped and sold the furs and hired out to other farmers. Walter joined the CCC (Civilian Conservation Corp) and for six months worked in northern Minnesota making trails and clearing land. On November 20, 1943 he married Eileen Niehaus in St. Louis, Missouri, which was near Jefferson Barracks, Missouri, where Walter was stationed. They had shared 73 years of married life together at the time of his death. He served his country in the U.S. Army Air Corps between April 1942 and December 1945 and was deployed to the Pacific theater off the Palua Islands and surrounding area. Walter began a tradition in the Mathwig military family – spending time on Okinawa. Sons Wayne, Don, Wes and Marv and granddaughter, Amber, all spent time on Okinawa during deployments to the Pacific theater. Walter was a member of the Arlington VFW and the Green Isle American Legion. On returning to Minnesota he and his wife farmed in Jessenland Township and continued to live there for 69 years. Walter attended Ag School in Green Isle twice a week following harvest until spring planting for four years. The educational program was sponsored by the University of Minnesota. Walter had a knack for remembering the equipment he bought over the years and what he paid for the equipment. He continued his love of farming after retirement by receiving farm magazines, driving around “checking out the crops” and reminiscing about farm life. His large family was another proud accomplishment for Walter. In recent years he always had big smiles whenever holding his many great and greatgreat-grandchilden. He is survived by his wife Eileen Mathwig of Arlington; children, Joyce (David) Kroells, Wayne Mathwig, Jackie (Dar-

Chaska City Council Gives Hy-Vee the Thumbs-Up Sign After 90 minutes of listening to discussion and concerns regarding the effects a proposed commercial development might have on a neighborhood, the Chaska City Council recently gave Hy-Vee the go-ahead. The Iowa-based grocer is planning a 105,000-square-foot grocery store and 4,375-squarefoot gas station and coffee shop on land west of Highway 212, near Engler Boulevard and Creek Road. It will be part of an 87-acre business park that will include a 32,000-square foot medical facility, the Chaska Herald recently reported. Discussion included a possible requirement to screen lights from the parking lot on neighboring houses and the construction of roads supporting the development. Hy-Vee opposed the proposal, noting the existing plans already call for more trees than the city requires. The city expects construction on the store could begin in 2019, after some of the road work in the area has begun. The store is expected to be open 24 hours.

quests in the order they are received. If the City receives more requests than there are spaces available for displays, a waiting list will be created. Once space becomes available in the forum, the waiting list will be used to determine which application will be processed next. – Displays must be removed within a period of one year from the date of approval. Prior to the expiration of the display period, the owner of the display may apply for another permit to display in the limited public forum. Such application will be treated the same as any other application, without any preference given. – It shall be the responsibility of the requesting party to erect the display upon approval from the City and to keep the display in good repair at all times. – The requesting party and not the City shall own any display erected in the limited public forum. The display must have liability coverage as per city procedure. A copy of the policy must be provided to the City prior to installation of the display. – In the event of damage to a display, or if a display is in a state of disrepair, the City Administrator will give the owner of the display notice of said damage or disrepair and require the owner to repair the display within 30 days. If the owner fails to repair the display within the notice period, the City Administrator will order removal of the display. – Displays constitute the speech of the individual or organization erecting the display and not the speech of the City. – The City shall erect a prominent disclaimer near or inside the limited public forum stating as follows: “The City of Belle Plaine has designated this area of Veterans Memorial Park a limited public forum, in order to accommodate privately-owned displays that honor and memorialize veterans. Displays constitute the speech of the owners of the display and not the City. The City does not endorse any speech, message or display herein.” – In the event the City desires to close the limited public forum or rescind this policy, the City, through its City Administrator, may terminate all permits by giving 10 days written notice of termination to the owner, within which period the owner must remove their display from city property.

60 Years Ago (1957)
Mike Fogarty, son of Mr. and Mrs. Mike T. Fogarty, won the District 5 FFA Public Speaking Contest in Waseca. Mike was one of 14 contestants in the contest and won with his speech called â€œGod Helps Those Who Help Themselves,â€? in which he suggested that farmers set up their own marketing organization and abandon government price supports. Mike was also president of the Belle Plaine FFA Chapter. M.J. Prendergast sold his 180-acre farm in Derrynane Township to Clarence Griep of Cleveland for $255 an acre. Mary Hessian, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Arthur C. Hessian of Belle Plaine, became the bride of Thomas L. Rittenhouse, son of Mr. and Mrs. William C. Rittenhouse of Phoenix, Ariz. Mrs. John Weldon of Green Isle, formerly of Blakeley, was $430 richer as a result of winning the big jackpot at the Knights of Columbus bingo party in Belle Plaine. A young Carver man, Robert Kramer, 22, was killed in a cartrain crash near Norwood. The accident occurred at the crossing on Highway 212 about onehalf mile outside Norwood. The Kramer auto collided with a six-car freight train. Mrs. Pauline Woestehoff, well-loved matron of this community and widow of the late Chris Woestehoff, died at the age of 80. Julius Haas, native of this community, died at the St. Peter hospital. He was 68 years old. Thomas H. Rendle, native of Carver County and son of the late James and Elizabeth Rendle, died at Huron, S.D., at the age of 70. Mrs. Anna Anderson, native of West Union and widow of the late Lars John Anderson, died at the home of her son, Ardie Anderson. She was 85 years old. Prudy Taylor and Paul Tillquist received A ratings in the piano division of the District 13 Music Contest held at Gustavus Adolphus College.

creamery let skim milk contract for the ensuing year to Henry Ruehling and William Tikalsky for $1,025, best skim milk bid the creamery ever had. Charles G. Johnson was well pleased with the results of his auction. His cows sold for an average of $68. The Blakeley Farm Club was holding interesting meetings. A.O. Woestehoff was president, William E. Weldon vice president and Fred E. Holste secretary-treasurer. At one of the monthly meetings the Belle Plaine Boy Scouts put on the entertainment program. Mr. and Mrs. Frank Messenbring gave up their home in Hancock-Benton Township to locate at Minnewashta. Carver County ofďŹ cials held a meeting to lay out plans for marking all the highways in the county. The McNary-Hagen Farm Bill was the political issue of the day. Two college debating teams â€“ St. Thomas and Gustavus Adolphus â€“ arranged to debate the issue at Belle Plaine High School. The Nelson Clothing store in Le Sueur was burglarized to the extent of $7,000. The robbers worked unmolested and cleared rack after rack of garments, hauling them to their truck and getting away without detection. Ed Eckardt indicated that he would again sponsor a semipro baseball team in Belle Plaine during the 1927 season. Union Hill young people were making ready to sponsor a home talent play, â€œSafety First.â€? Belle Plaine ďŹ remen announced $60 in cash prizes for their annual masquerade ball.
120 Years Ago (1897)
Belle Plaine businessmen were endeavoring to get together in the organization of a â€œBoard of Trade.â€? Winter ďŹ shing at Hillstrom Lake was all the go. One local ďŹ sherman reported a 300-pound catch in two visits to the lake. William Klanke announced his retirement from the harness business in Belle Plaine. Checker playing was the popular indoor activity. Frank Werrick was recognized as the champ, holding his own against the townâ€™s best players. A public meeting resulted in the naming of a committee of 15 to act as a citizens charter committee. Sentiment favored a new charter and change in incorporation from a borough to a city.
Dear Editor, I feel that I should express some opinion on the recent activity involving the Veterans Memorial here in Belle Plaine. Our country was founded on Christian principles and our rules and guidelines of conduct are largely based on these Christian principles. Our society and community works because people choose to abide by these principles and we all ďŹ nd them beneďŹ cial. The Christian principles of, â€œThou shalt not kill, thou shalt not steal, thou shalt not bear false witness, honor thy father and motherâ€? and others, are accepted and observed because they are most beneďŹ cial to all of us. Yet there are those who are willing to accept these beneďŹ ts, but not willing to acknowledge their source - the ďŹ rst of the set - â€œThou shalt honor the Lord thy God and Him only shall thou serve.â€? To me this is a two-faced and hypocritical situation. How can you have it both ways? Orville Heitkamp Belle Plaine U.S. Army 1953-1954
Dear Editor, I was born and raised near Union Hill, so Iâ€™ve been passively following the Veterans Memorial controversy via my Facebook feed. Last night, I decided to go to the town council meeting. After all, itâ€™s not every day that national news happens six miles away from my childhood home. I was concerned by what I saw. During the pre-meeting rally, Andy Parrish referred to the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) as a â€œviolent, out of state hate groupâ€? who â€œattacked every small town in America that doesnâ€™t have resources to ďŹ ght back.â€? He said that the memorial represented the spirit of Belle Plaine, and now, much as our soldiers did, we need to â€œencounter bullies on the battleďŹ eld and look into the face of evil.â€? During the pre-meeting rally, he spiritedly exclaimed that â€œif a bully kicks you in the shins, you hit him in the face.â€? Mr. Parrish, that is not the way that I was raised. Those are not the ideals of Belle Plaine. If a bully kicks me in the shins, I was raised to avoid the bully (who is clearly a violent maniac anyway) until a solution could be orchestrated. I was raised that taking an eye for an eye makes the whole world blind. The FFRF is not an evil group, and framing them as one is simplistic and dangerous. FFRF admires the sacriďŹ ces veterans have made (and continue to make), and they strive to make sure that veterans â€“ all veterans - feel appreciated and honored at memorials. Instead of considering this point of view, Mr. Parrish instead petulantly exclaimed, â€œI make my decisions from what I know is right and worthy.â€? When the council at ďŹ rst failed to make a motion, he goaded them by sneering, â€œIâ€™m shocked that not one of you had the courage to do the right thing.â€? Mr. Parrish, the only bully in that room was you. I know that the people of Belle Plaine can be accepting and open to alternate ways of thinking. I was inspired by the whoops and hollers from the crowd when the council announced that Jewish, Muslim, atheist, etc. memorials could also be erected in the park under the new limited use forum
cross-supportersâ€™ proposal? At the council meeting, Andy Parrish, spokesman for the cross-proponents, called the FFRF â€œan out-of-state group, driven by extremism. . . . this cowardly hate group hides behind a perverted view of the First Amendment and uses that view to bully others.â€? Speaking of bullying hate groups, you might want to look into the ADF and what they stand for. Just google â€œADF + hate group.â€? See if youâ€™re comfortable having them represent the interests of Belle Plaine. Reports suggest that the Belle Plaine citizen who some say started all this simply asked the city police if the cross placed on city property â€“ without permission â€“ was legal. (Some might argue that whoever placed the cross there in the ďŹ rst place â€œstarted it all.â€?) Since then, the citizen who called the cops has been bullied through social media just for asking questions. Parrish, the cross-proponentsâ€™ spokesman, even went so far as to accuse a Belle Plaine councilor of contacting the FFRF. Why that would matter, Iâ€™m not sure. But according to the Herald, after the councilorâ€™s denial, â€œParrish . . . requested under the Minnesota Data Practices Act that the city review all phone and email and communications from the councilor with the FFRF.â€? Whoâ€™s the bully here? Itâ€™s sad we canâ€™t ďŹ nd a compromise, but when another councilor suggested the Latin cross be replaced by the common BattleďŹ eld or Soldierâ€™s Cross (boots, riďŹ‚e, helmet), appropriate to any service-memberâ€™s religion, the pro-cross crowd refused. One might ask whether cross proponents are more interested in honoring their own religion or veterans. Is there no middle ground here that would avoid the ill will and likely litigation? Proponents of the veterans park cross sometimes cite the â€œno atheists in foxholesâ€? adage, which someone once said is a better argument against foxholes than atheism. Speaking as a veteran myself, Iâ€™d rather we worry more about taking care of veterans and keeping soldiers alive than how we honor them when theyâ€™re dead. Christopher Moore Belle Plaine
policy. However, is this the best solution? Do we really need separate memorials for every group that was represented in war? Did they not all ďŹ ght together? Can we instead have a memorial that honors all soldiers? As this issue progresses, letâ€™s remember what a veterans memorial should be. It is a place to gather and remember the horrible toll that war takes. It is a place to honor those who have lost their lives and to hope that someday a future will come where there is no more war. I hope we can all agree on that. In these difďŹ cult times, we need to be drawn together, not forced apart. Barbara Michel
Dear Editor, Itâ€™s (almost) spring, and crosses blessing veterans have sprouted all around town on private property. I salute those who are so moved. A veteran myself, I appreciate the expressions of support. However, I canâ€™t say the same about certain protests of the crossâ€™s removal from our city-owned veterans park. I donâ€™t know about you, but Iâ€™ve seen some questionable reasoning and â€œalternative factsâ€? about whatâ€™s happening here. For example, in spite of some media reports, the cross is not back in the park, and it wonâ€™t be until our city council passes a resolution stipulating a portion of the park a â€œlimited public forum.â€? Before that happens, someone will have to ďŹ gure out what a â€œlimited public forumâ€? is in this case and how it might work under the law. SufďŹ ce it to say, our fair city is now in legal limbo regarding everything from the First Amendment to liability insurance. Lawsuits may follow with city tax-payers on the hook. One of the cross-proponentsâ€™ complaints is about outside meddling from the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) headquartered in Madison, Wisc. Surely the FFRF has every right to mount a challenge and did so in writing. Given the outside meddling complaint, isnâ€™t it ironic that a lawyer from Scottsdale, Ariz., was ďŹ‚own in for last weekâ€™s council meeting by the Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) â€“ at their expense â€“ to argue in favor of the

Letters to the Editor
When Belle Plaine and other Scott County residents received their 1986 tax statements that week, one thing they probably werenâ€™t looking forward to was a sizeable increase over the year before. The mill rate was up in Belle Plaine by 7 1/2 percent, or 117.509 to 126.508 mills, according to city assessor Ed Bowler. A mill is one-tenth of a cent, a ďŹ gure used in computing tax rates. The reason for the increase at the county level, according to Jim berg, county controller, was that the budget approved went up 19.7 percent, or $2.3 million. The county maintained that it was hit hard by the loss of state and federal aids. The public would get a chance to tour the new Scott County Highway Department Central Shop and Surveyorâ€™s ofďŹ ce at an open house that coming Sunday afternoon. The complex was built at a cost of $3 million. It was located 4 1/2 miles southwest of Prior Lake on Highway 282. The 92nd annual Belle Plaine Firemanâ€™s Dance would be held that coming Saturday evening at the Park Ballroom in New Prague. Music would be provided by the Revival Band. When Andy Rider went out to check on his traps that Thursday morning, he was in for a surprise. Instead of a fox, for which the traps were set, he came across a coyote. Rider, who did a lot of trapping on his farm southwest of Belle Plaine near the Minnesota River, planned to have the coyoteâ€™s hide made into a full head rug to mount on the wall. The Belle Plaine High School boysâ€™ basketball team defeated Le Center 58-45 before a Parentsâ€™ Night crowd in Belle Plaine. Mark Johnson led the Tigers with 16 points, followed by Jeff Johnson with 12 and Kevin Jeurissen 10. The Tiger girlsâ€™ basketball team lost to Jordan 48-34 and Mankato Loyola 43-38. Robyn Denny scored 12 points against Jordan and Julie Halquist had 14 points and 11 rebounds against Loyola. The Tiger wrestling team lost to St. Clair 38-19. The lone wins

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

Tigers Split Two Conference Games by Dan Ruud The Belle Plaine High School boys’ basketball team continued its season-long concoction of a near even batch of wins and losses after splitting a pair of Minnesota River Conference home games last week, falling to Jordan 66-59 on Tuesday and beating Mayer Lutheran 77-66 on Friday. The Tigers, 4-6 in the MRC, 12-11 overall, will travel to fifth-place Norwood Young America for a MRC game 7:30 p.m. this Thursday before closing the conference season at home against last-place Le Sueur-Henderson 7:30 p.m. next Tuesday. Belle Plaine needs to win both those games to reach the .500 mark in the MRC and upgrade its stature in the soon-to-be-released section tournament bracket. Jordan 66, Tigers 59 Belle Plaine led MRC-leading Jordan 51-45 with less than six minutes to play before the Hubmen outscored the Tigers 21-8 the rest of the way for a 66-59 victory last Tuesday night in Belle Plaine. “Our defense and intensity was terrific throughout this en- Belle Plaine’s Andrew Hunsader scored 10 points against Jortire contest,” said Belle Plaine dan last Tuesday night in Belle Plaine. coach Paul Fogarty.

Eric Tiedman at 6-6, and Jimmy Vollbrecht, at 6-8, the two tallest players on the floor, led Jordan with 29 and 21 points, respectively. Jordan, at 9-1, maintains a one-game lead over Sibley East (8-2) heading into the final two games of the MRC season. Tigers 77, Mayer Luth. 66 The Tigers built a 17-point (41-24) halftime advantage en route to avenging a Jan. 30 loss at Mayer Lutheran with a 77-66 triumph Friday night in Belle Plaine. “This was our best start to finish performance of the year,” Fogarty said. “Our pressure defense, rebounding and poise to Belle Plaine’s Noah Hastings, who scored 17 points, tried to Boys’ Basketball maneuver around Jordan’s 6-8 forward Jimmy Vollbrecht (continued on page 6) last Tuesday night in Belle Plaine.

Scott West Lands Top Seed, Will Host Section Matches
The Scott West wrestling team put the final touches on a 16-0 regular season when it traveled to Bloomington Kennedy High School on Thursday night and defeated the Class 3A Eagles 38-22. Scott West’s unbeaten regular season is the fourth in what is its 27th year as a program. The previous three unbeaten regular seasons occurred in the 2000, 2011 and 2012. The 2000 team went 16-0 during the regular season before finishing 20-2 and placing fourth in the state team tournament. The 2011 and 2012 teams both finished the regular season with unbeaten records at 19-0 and 20-0, respectively, before they both went on to wrestle their way to state team runnerup finishes. “It (finishing unbeaten in the regular season) is a nice accomplishment and can give you something to feel good about,” states Scott West co-head coach Darren Ripley. “However, you can throw the record away because the only thing that matters now is what is going to happen at the Section 2AA Team Championships this week.” The Section 2AA Team Championships will take place at Jordan High School this Thursday night with preliminary round action that will be followed by the “Final Four” on Saturday. Scott West received the No. 1 seed for the section tournament and will wrestle at approximately 7:15 p.m. this Thursday against either No. 8 seed Tri-City United (5-12) or No. 9 WEM/JWP (10-11). No. 5 seed Watertown-Mayer (10-4) will host No. 12 Mankato East (4-16) for the right to take on No. 4 seed New Prague (16-8) Thursday night in New Prague. In the lower bracket, Hutchinson (24-3) received the No. 2 seed and will square off against the winner between No. 7 Mankato West (10-9) and No. 10 Waseca (4-15) Thursday night in Hutchinson. Waconia (9-3), the No. 3 seed, will await the winner between No. 6 St. Peter (16-7) and No. 11 Glencoe-Silver Lake/LP (3-15). Saturday’s semifinals at Jordan will take place side-by-side at 4 p.m., followed by the championship at approximately 6 p.m. The winner of the latter match will advance to the state Class 2A team tournament.

at Mankato East in December and followed that up with a 2625 criteria win at Waconia in January. “It should be another exciting day of wrestling in the tradition of Section 2AA Team Wrestling,” states Ripley. In Scott West’s 38-22 win at Bloomington Kennedy Thursday night, Panther Graham Thompson lost in a second period pin to Bloomington’s Kole Krause in the opening match at 106 pounds. But Jacob Strack ignited a six-match Scott West winning streak as he used a five-point first period move to help propel himself to a 9-4 win over Allen Everson at 113. Following Strack’s win, Scott West lit up the scoreboard quickly as the Stauffacher brothers put up back-to-back pin falls at 120 and 126 pounds. Justin’s came over Alex Badeaux in the first period, while Jackson would work his way to a third period pin of Joe Jeans. Tyler Shackle made it three Panther pins in a row as the 132-pounder drove JFK’s Billy Reineccius to his back with a first period arm bar. “Pins are very important, especially this time of the year,” states Ripley. “You get somebody on their back, you have to pin them, and Justin, Jackson and Tyler did just that.” Although senior Panther Parker Huss did not get a pin, he worked his way to an 18-3 technical fall over Bloomington’s Xavier Judge at 138. Huss
used five take downs and three sets of back points to score the win. Huss’ win was followed by the Panthers’ sixth straight victory of the meet as Jack Fogarty scored a pair of take downs and a set of back points to win a 7-2 decision over Reese Averbeck at 145. The six-match Scott West win streak came to an end at 152 pounds when Bloomington’s Percy Willingham scored a pin of Jeffery Kasper when he cradled the Panther sophomore for a first period pin. The home team Eagles were looking to make it two pins in a row behind Alexis Franco but Scott West eighth-grader John Jack Wiese (160) fought his way to making it a full six minutes as he lost a 12-0 major decision in his first varsity match. “John Jack’s fighting effort caught the attention of Scott West coach Frank Kipp,” insists Ripley. “Frank really liked what he saw in John Jack’s performance and he communicated that to the team at the beginning of Friday morning’s practice at 6:00.” It was a hard-fought battle at 170 where Bloomington’s #6-rated Noah Keith scored a 10-3 win over Jon Huss, with four of those points coming at the buzzer with the Scott West wrestler attempting a desperation move that put himself on

Chan Man Arrested in Botched Victoria Liquor Store Holdup A Chanhassen man was arrested Monday after a foiled stickup of a Victoria liquor store. Joseph Scott Lacek of Chanhassen was arrested after he allegedly tried to rob the Hi-Five Liquors, 1512 Commercial Ave., in Victoria. Lacek is being held in the county jail on a $150,000 cash bail. His next court appearance is set for March 1. According to the Carver County Sheriff’s Office, Lacek, 26, entered Hi-Five Liquors, approached the store employee,
produced a handgun and demanded money. He proceeded to set the gun down to put on a glove when the store employee attempted to grab the gun, and a struggle ensued. Lacek regained control of the gun, and the store employee fled as Lacek pointed the gun at him. Lacek then fled the store. The store employee chased Lacek as he fled the store and got into a motor vehicle. A citizen outside Hi-Five Liquors observed Lacek running away from the store and took a
photograph of Lacek fleeing in a motor vehicle. The vehicle description, along with the license plate, was provided to sheriff’s deputies. Lacek was located at his residence on the 3600 block of Hickory Road in Chanhassen. He was taken into custody without incident and booked into the Carver County Jail for armed robbery. A handgun was recovered at the residence and no injuries were reported to deputies. The Carver County Sheriff’s Office will continue to investigate this incident. No other suspects are believed to be involved.
Sibley County Mulls Moving Bluff Setbacks Back to 50 Feet After hearing from land owners that the 100-foot setback made property atop bluffs unbuildable, the Sibley County Planning Commission is recommending the county switch back to a 50-foot setback. The commission is recommending the Sibley County Board approve the revised setback. If the board approves the proposed change, the new rule would likely go into effect April 1, the Gaylord Hub recently reported. Sibley County enacted the 100-foot setback to protect homeowners from property damage in the event of a washout, like those that occurred following storms in 2014. The county
has heard complaint from people who want to build atop the bluffs, particularly on the eastern side of Sibley County. Jeff Majeski, the county’s director of Environmental Services, said staff would inspect the proposed building site, as had been done previously. Jim Bau-
‘Wizardz’ Benefit Chili Cook-off Saturday at Oak Crest
Mary Muehlenhardt and the crew at Sparetime Tavern aren’t relying on a secret recipe to enter in a chili cook-off to benefit the Wizardz Special Olympics team Saturday afternoon (Feb. 18) at Oak Crest Elementary School. “It’s a traditional chili, no beans” Muehlenhardt said. Sparetime will be one of 10 entries in the cook-off. Last year, the tavern’s entry finished second to Coborn’s. Judging starts around 4:30 p.m. Chili will be available for people to enjoy from 5 to 8 p.m. A hot dog dinner will also be available for those who don’t enjoy chili, said Dawn Halverson, one of the event’s co-chairpersons with Ashley Larson. The friendly competition will include a winner named by a panel of judges and a people’s choice honoree named by those attending the benefit. The judges will include Belle Plaine Mayor Chris Meyer and Police Chief Tom Stolee. Jordan Mayor Tanya Velishek and JPD Chief Brett Empey, Arlington Mayor Rich Nagel and Savage Police Chief Rodney Seurer are also scheduled to help judge the cook-off. The cook-off is a benefit for the Wizardz, a Special Olympics team of residents from Belle Plaine, Jordan, New Prague, Montgomery and Sibley County. All the money raised will go to support the Wizardz. Muehlenhardt enjoyed the entries from the other chefs during last year’s cook-off. She was impressed with the Coborn’s entry, although her preference is for a milder blend. “It was good, but too spicy,” she said. “I like a little kick.”
Halverson said this year’s entries include Johan’s Bar, Prairie Grill, Coborn’s, Scott Renne and Sparetime from Belle Plaine, Henderson Road Haus, Jordan Tap Room, Double Tap Bowling Alley from Arlington, and Velvet Touch Catering of New Prague. People’s choice winner Willie Larson of Arlington is also expected to enter the contest again this year.
Mary Muehlenhardt of Sparetime Tavern will be bringing the tavern’s popular chili to the Wizardz’s annual chili cook-off Saturday (Feb. 18) at Oak Crest Elementary School in Belle Plaine. Judging begins around 4:30 p.m. and chili will be served beginning at 5 p.m. Proceeds of the event will benefit the Wizardz, an area Special Olympics team. Muehlenhardt says there’s nothing special about the Sparetime chili. Its distinct flavor comes from a grill that has been used to cook hamburgers for over 50 years, back to the 1960s when Harold “Porky” Westphal owned the bar and grill. The rest is chili powder, some red peppers, salt and pepper. “Just the basics,” she said. It’s the same chili Sparetime serves its customers. The bar and grill goes through three five-gallon pots of the chili during a typical week. The cold winter months are when the chili is in high demand, said Julie Savage, one of the family members that operate Sparetime Tavern. The biggest variable in Sparetime’s chili is who makes it.
Sparetime owner Don Savage tends to make a spicier version of the chili. During the weekday, the chili Bev Fahey and Deb Legg prepare tends to be a bit milder, Muehlenhardt said. The crew from Sparetime isn’t worried about winning the competition. They have no worries about vying for bragging rights among the local establishments. “We always give the community as much as we can,” Muehlenhardt said. “We love to help out the Wizardz. The best part is seeing the looks on their faces.” Oak Crest Elementary School is at 1101 Commerce Drive W. in Belle Plaine. Tickets for the event are $8 for adults, $5 for children and $32 for a family.

man, Faxon Township’s building official, had mixed feelings on the proposed change. The county shouldn’t restrict people from using their land but it should also protect them from D.C.

Overnight to D.C.
Driving overnight from Minneapolis to Washington, D.C., the caravan of buses carrying the Minnesotans arrived in the nation’s capital the morning of Jan. 21, the day after President Trump’s inauguration as the 45th president of the United States. Minnesota’s U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar greeted the group as it arrived in the nation’s capital around 7 a.m. The day (Jan. 21) included a variety of speakers at the National Mall who encouraged the audience to not accept policies that threaten the middle class, women and the environment. The people who made the trek to Washington, D.C. were encouraged to organize at the grassroots level and support candidates who will work for change. Brittney Carlson, 31, believes people have to stand up for what they believe in. She noted Trump ran as a Washington outsider, a person who understands business and appeals to the masses with a populist message. Yet in the first weeks of his presidency, Carlson pointed to actions the president has taken on immigration (travel ban) and the environment (Dakota access pipeline) besides his cabinet appointees she can’t support. When coupled with his campaign message, the two sisters decided doing nothing was not much of an option. An actuary with United Health Care, Brittney Carlson believes the effort was worthwhile. “You can sit and talk about it, but you’ve got to do something about it,” she said. The two women have been politically active before. They door-knocked in Minnetonka during the fall, encouraging people to support DFL candidates. Around 3 p.m. on Jan. 21, the throng of people at the National Mall began a slow march from the mall toward Pennsylvania Avenue. The side streets along
(continued from page 1)
the main route were also filled with crowds of people. People waved at the mass of humanity from the upper floors of buildings, Tanya Carlson said. Their route took the crowd by the White House by approximately 4:30 p.m. “People were passionate on both sides. We wanted our voices to be heard,” Tanya Carlson said. “I definitely don’t regret going.”

SCHS Seeks Stories from Women’s March Participants On Saturday, Jan. 21, an estimated 3-4 million people took part in what is likely the largest protest in U.S. history – the Women’s March. While the primary march took place in Washington D.C., with over 500,000 in attendance at that location, there were “sister marches” around the globe, spanning all seven continents. It is estimated that 90,000-100,000 attended the Women’s March in St. Paul. The stated intent of marchers was to promote civil rights, gender equality, diversity and inclusion.
