Belle Plaine Native is Right Where He Wants to Be James Fogarty Has His ‘Dream Job’

He recalls the many times he sat in a pasture at his grandfather John Halloran’s farm in Belle Plaine Township not far from Union Hill. James Fogarty watched ducks glide into a wildlife management area. It was a vision that cemented his career plans. Fogarty is one of the lucky ones, a person who works his dream job each and every day. He wouldn’t have it any other way. Fogarty is a new Department of Natural Resources conservation officer. He works in the La Crescent Station in southeastern Minnesota, one of the state’s most scenic areas. “This is a job that doesn’t feel like work to me,” Fogarty said. “I get to talk with people who are doing what I love to do.” He spends most of every day in the field, in a truck, on a snowmobile or all-terrain vehicle meeting people out hunting, fishing or just hiking in the area’s many coulees (deep ravines). He has learned about the potential dangers of fishing on the Mississippi River, where the levels of water below the ice can fluctuate dramatically depending on the amount of water the U.S. Army Corps of Engi-

neers allows flowing through lock and damns at Genoa, Wis. and Dresbach, Minn. “It really changes how safe the ice is,” he said. “It can fluctuate dramatically in just a few hours.”

‘Standard’ Law Enforcement

Fogarty spent 13 years in what he calls “standard” law enforcement. His career started in 2003 as a dispatcher and corrections officer with the Le Sueur County Sheriff’s Office. He was later hired as a road deputy and later promoted to detective with the Carver County Sheriff’s Of-

fice. Both jobs taught Fogarty skills he uses everyday as a conservation officer. In standard law enforcement, when he wasn’t responding to calls, Fogarty learned to work with people, showing them the best ways to safely enjoy the outdoors. He constantly preaches safety to people he meets during his work as a conservation officer. As a road deputy and later detective, he learned about details of an incident or a crime were chronicled and properly handled. Along the way, Fogarty realized his true calling as a conservation officer. He became the Carver County Sheriff’s Office’s unofficial go-to deputy on questions involving outdoor The cross in this display at Veterans Park in Belle Plaine will be removed following a comsafety regulations and laws. plaint from the Freedom From Religion Foundation.

Woman Gets Prison Time for Check Forgery, Assault at B.P. Store A 24-year-old woman will spend time in prison for trying to cash a stolen and forged check at a Belle Plaine grocery store and then threatening the life of the store manager when staff declined to honor the check. After being convicted of forgery and assault in July of 2016, Mai Kai Lee of Cottage Grove was sentenced Jan. 6, 2017 to 366 days in prison for felony check forgery and fifth-degree assault, a misdemeanor. Judge Rex Stacey dismissed a third count against Lee, misdemeanor disorderly conduct. According to the criminal complaint, Lee was one of two women who tried to cash the worthless check for $412.05

at the Belle Plaine Coborn’s Superstore Feb. 28, 2016. The manager was familiar with the two women thanks to a security alert he had received from a Coborn’s store in Albertville, Minn. The women were pictured on the alert. They had previously used a stolen check to purchase $1,251 in merchandise from the Coborn’s in Albertville. The criminal charge says Belle Plaine store personnel tried to delay the transaction until police arrived. The two women grew frustrated with the holdup and threatened to call the police. They demanded the identification and check they had presented to Coborn’s store

Hibernians Meet Tonight

The Green Isle City Council held its first meeting of 2017 last Tuesday (Jan. 10). Councilors Diane Brown, Mark Wentzlaff and Mayor Joe Kreger all took the oath of office. The council and city staff include (standing, from left) councilors John Schauer and Shawn Harms, City Attorney Ross Arneson, Wentzlaff, (seated, from left) Clerk-Treasurer Bert Panning, Kreger and Brown.

Green Isle Lions Seek City’s Help With ‘Legacy Project’ to Honor Vets

Brown, Kreger Wentzlaff, Take Oath of Office

With crowds expected for the state amateur baseball tournament in Green Isle later this summer, the Lions club wants to help the community put its best foot forward by creating a veterans memorial in a high visibility location along Highway 5. The Lions delivered the request to the Green Isle City Council Jan. 10. The proposal had members of the council contemplating ways to help the Lions, starting with identifying potential high-visibility locations along Highway 5 owned by the city or the Minnesota Department of Transportation. Another possible location for the memorial is the city-owned vacant lot on the east side of Green Isle City Hall, although the Lions favor using land along the highway, said Donna Wolter, president of the Green Isle Lions. The city owns land across Highway 5 from the United Farmers Coop convenience store. Councilor Mark Wentzlaff liked the lot as a possible site for the memorial. The club is hoping the city will donate the land or sell a small piece or it for, say, $1. Mayor Joe Kreger noted the city could use the land it owns as it wishes. “Give us some idea of how much you want,” Kreger said. The memorial’s preliminary design includes three flagpoles carrying the American flag, the blue Minnesota state flag and the black and white POW/ MIA flag. The memorial would include some aggregate, landscaping and benches plus a plaque honoring veterans and indentifying the memorial as a Lions club project, Wolter said. “We just want it to be very simple,” she said. In the years to come, the memorial could be

expanded, possibly with the addition of a statute of a soldier, Wolter said. The group is not interested in bringing largescale military hardware to the memorial, Rose Thies, a member of the Green Isle Lions told the city council. Paver blocks honoring veterans and their families were suggested as a means to raise funds for the project. The Lions plan to use proceeds from their annual dinner-comedy show Saturday, Feb. 4, 6 p.m., at Green Isle Community School to help fund the project. Tickets are available from Green Isle Lions Club members or at CornerStone State Bank in Green Isle. The proposal for a veterans memorial is part of a legacy project the Lions are planning in conjunction with the 100th anniversary of Lions Club International. The Green Isle club was formed in 1972. “This is about patriotism and improving our community,” Thies said. “This is community spirit and to thank our veterans.” City councilors were open to working with the Lions on the potential use of city owned land along Highway 5. They asked the club for some indication of the amount of space the memorial would require. Lions club members agreed to bring information back to the city council at a future meeting. Green Isle is hosting the state amateur baseball tournament in conjunction with Hamburg and Norwood Young America Aug. 18 through Sept. 4.

Oaths of Office

The first meeting of 2017 started with two new council members – Councilor Diane Brown and Mayor Joe Kreger – and one returnee taking the oath of office from City ClerkTreasurer Bert Panning as part of the annual organizational meeting.

S.M. Hentges Takes County to Appeals Court Over Gravel Mine Rejection

After Scott County commissioners rejected S.M. Hentges & Sons plans to dig a gravel mine on land the company owns in Sand Creek Township in September, the company is taking its case to court. The Jordan-based company is taking its case to the Minnesota Court of Appeals. It is arguing commissioners were arbitrary and capricious when denying the company’s request for an interim use permit (IUP) and that there is no factual basis for rejecting S.M. Hentges & Sons application. Former Commissioner Joe

Wagner of Sand Creek Township was not surprised by the company’s move to the courts. He long ago predicted the final decision would be made in court and not by locally-elected officials. “The word ‘no’ is not in Steve Hentges’ vocabulary. He’s not going to go away,” Wagner said. “I said all along this would be decided by a judge.” The county board voted against the application for an IUP, 4-1. Commissioner Mike Beard of Shakopee cast the lone vote supporting S.M. Hentges plan. The vote against the appli-

cation was predicated over concerns the mine would be dug below the water table and flooding from nearby Sand Creek and the Minnesota River could lead to contamination of groundwater. Commissioners were also concerned about the volume of truck traffic from the mine accessing public roads. Hentges argues commissioners ignored data from the National Pollution Discharge and Elimination System conditions and requirements and instead relied on hyperbole and rhetoric.

With her husband, Jamey at the wheel of the tractor, Nicole Hecksel (above) took down the Christmas lights from a street light pole at the intersection of McGrann Street and Gloria Avenue in Green Isle Saturday (Jan. 14) afternoon. Overall, the couple removed 21 Christmas lights mounted on street poles in Green Isle. The city had planned to remove the lights Monday (Jan. 16), but the Hecksels took advantage of a mild, sunny day to complete the task.

Religious Display (continued from page 1) November for the 2016 holiday season, Belle Plaine Rotary Club member Fred Keup said the decision to relocate the scene was that of the Rotary Club, not the city. He added that the consensus of the club was that it “just didn’t want anymore problems.” As for the FFRF’s latest attempt to have a religious symbol removed from city property in Belle Plaine, an email to the Herald from Keith and Jennifer Lorensen in Pueblo, Colo., urged Belle Plaine to holds it ground. “A friend notified me about the Freedom from Religion Foundation’s attempts to force your community to remove a veterans’ memorial from Veterans Park because it is offensive to those who practice no religion or non-Christians,” states the email. “We pray that you stand strong against the atheist bullies. Do not let them get a foothold in your community by bowing to the pseudo-altar of atheism. This organization marches it way across America, intimidating and threatening small communities, with the goal of eradicating the JudeoChristian founding of our nation. They have been all the more emboldened these past eight years as attacks on religious liberty have escalated significantly under the outgoing president.”

down to better Deshawn Carter 3-2 at 170. At 182 pounds, the Panthers sent Jon Huss to do battle with Waconia’s Cole Bremer as the home Wildcats now held a 2216 lead. Huss won a wild 11-10 decision to pull Scott West to within 22-19. The craziness of the meet continued as Waconia had weighed in their #6-rated heavyweight Jake Hawkins in at 195 pounds and Scott West countered with the return of its newly #1-rated 182-pounder Tyler Buesgens as he made his return to the Panther lineup for the first time since his third place finish at the Minnesota Christmas Tournament, although he did accept a forfeit a week later against Norwood Young America. Buesgens went right to work as he opened the match with a quick take down of Hawkins and then used a tight arm bar where it appeared that the Scott West wrestler had the Waconia wrestler on his back when the referee blew his whistle and stopped the match for what was termed to be inappropriate language by the underneath wrestler. Buesgens went on to win the match 10-3 and tie the team score at 22-22. At 220, Scott West sophomore Calvin Menke made a lone second period escape stand up in a 1-0 win over Wildcat Bobby Flemming. That brought the meet to the all-important match at heavyweight where the Panthers’ Ben Alexander would battle it out with the Wildcats’ Dylan Gluck. After a hardfought match, it would be the Waconia wrestler who got his hand raised with a 2-0 win. Gluck’s win would end the crazy Friday the 13th night of wrestling with the score knotted at 25-25. But the Panthers would be declared a 26-25 winner for having won eight of the 14 matches. “Calvin and Ben did a great job of staying in good position, slugging it out with the Waconia wrestlers and getting done what they needed to do for the result of a big team dual victory,� contends Ripley. Scott West, 10-0, will travel to take on Le Sueur-Henderson this Thursday night in a Minnesota River Conference dual meet before heading to the Eastview Invitational on Saturday in Apple Valley.

Belle Plaine Police Report

Boys’ Basketball

Wrestling

only bonus point the Panthers put on the scoreboard all meet as the Waconia wrestlers fought hard for six minutes throughout the night. “Justin did a good job of putting points on the board, nearly got a pin and was just short of a tech,� states Ripley. “It’s kind of crazy to think that we won eight matches and only scored one bonus point. That is probably a first in Scott West wrestling history.� The wrestling fans on both sides of the stands would get a bonus point in the next match as the Wildcats opted to move up their returning senior state champion Garrett Vos to go against Scott West returning junior state runner-up Jackson Stauffacher at 126 in what would become the feature match of the meet. Stauffacher struck first with a solid and quick single-leg that he finished to take an early 2-0 first period lead. However, trailing 2-1 entering the second period, Vos returned the favor as he scored an escape and single-leg take down to take a 4-2 lead going into the third period. After a Stauffacher escape, Vos sealed a 6-3 win with a late take down and a triumphant flexing of the muscles to the Waconia crowd as the home team was now on the board trailing 10-3. Panther Tyler Shackle earned an 8-3 win over Waconia’s Mitch Garnatz in their match at 132 to make the team tally 13-3. “It was important from our team perspective that Tyler respond with a solid win after Jackson’s loss,� remarks Ripley. “That is what team wrestling is about as you have to have each other’s back, and while it would have been nice to get after bonus points here, it was a solid match win by Tyler.� Scott West senior Parker Huss would save his best for the third period as he turned a Minnesota Christmas Tournament loss by pin to Waconia freshman Tim Stapleton into a big 4-3 win. “Parker did a good job of keeping the pressure on Stapleton and pursuing him around the mat,� states Ripley. With the team score standing at 16-3 in favor of Scott West, Waconia would mount a comeback behind the powerful middle part of its lineup by winning the next four matches. The rally began with an impressive 23-8 technical fall by two-time state place winner Tyler Wagner as he used 10 take downs to beat Panther Jack Fogarty. Wagner’s win was followed by a second straight technical fall as returning state qualifier Justin Schultz used seven take downs and three sets of near falls in beating Scott West freshman Jace Demmers 22-7 at 152. The home team Wildcats then took their first lead when returning state qualifier Cade Meuller was able to get a third period power half that took Panther Tariq Smith to his back at 160 for an ensuing pin fall call at 5:30 of the match, and just like that, it was a three-point Waconia team lead at 19-16. Alex Logelin capped off the four-match Wildcat win streak as he scored a third period take

BELLE PLAINE HERALD, BELLE PLAINE, MINNESOTA

Thirty Years Ago This Week

“Every organization and every person will have to work together and think for the community as a whole,” said new Belle Plaine Mayor John Ploetz. “I’d like to see that more than everything else, even if I’m mayor for only two years.” Ploetz added that he didn’t run for mayor to make a lot of promises to make big changes or criticize how things are run. “I ran for mayor because this town has been good to me and my family,” and I’d like to give something back. Belle Plaine High School was broken into for the second time in less than a week. Entrance was gained by breaking a window in the faculty lounge. The intruder(s) then got into the main office by taking the door off the hinges. An attempt was made to get into the safe but failed. School Superintendent Dr. John Bartholow said the school hadn’t noticed anything missing. In the first break-in on Jan. 9, photographic equipment and a phone were taken, but later recovered. Two juveniles and an adult were apprehended in that case. St. John’s Lutheran Church of Belle Plaine and Redeemer Lutheran Church of Henderson welcomed their new associate pastor, Rev. Mark Hall, and his family into their congregations that Sunday. The Halls came here from Westby, Mont. The State Bank of Belle Plaine was participating with the Minnesota Housing Finance Agency, which had a total of $56 million in below-market interest rate financing available for first-time homebuyers. Under the single-family mortgage loan program, low- and moderate-income homebuyers were eligible for a 30-year, fixed-rate mortgage loan at an interest rate of 7.85 percent. The BPHS boys’ basketball team defeated Jordan in a home game to improve to 3-3 in the conference and 7-3 overall. Mark Johnson led the way for the Tigers with 19 points.

The Schmidt family took temporary quarters with relatives in Jordan. A Carver County farmer, Wm. J. Gregg of near St. Bonifacius, reported making good money from a 10-acre farm. He raised pigs that were fed on rented alfalfa, some shelled corn, boiled barley, and before reaching 180 pounds, were turned into sausage. He had sold $6,800 worth of his sausage to Minneapolis hotels and clubs the preceding year.

Suicide Grief Support Group Meets Jan. 24

Letters to the Editor Dear Editor, I hope President Donald Trump brings a renewed spirit of morality to America. But since honesty is a primary principle of moral behavior, I’m disheartened by his first news conference as President-Elect. Fact-checking organizations found a number of his statements to be questionable or out-right false. For example, he claimed “I have no loans, I have no dealings” in Russia. That’s hard to know because he hasn’t released his tax returns, repeating his claim that “you learn very little in a tax return.” Clearly, his returns would offer valuable details on his financial affairs. Trump said, “You know, the only one that cares about my tax returns are the reporters, okay?” Not true. The Pew Research Center released a poll the day before the press conference showing that close to two-thirds of Americans think the issue is important. Sixty percent of the people polled by Pew said Trump has a responsibility to publicly release his tax returns. About health care, Trump said, “Some states have over 100 percent increase” in premiums under the Affordable Care Act. “Obamacare [is] imploding as we said. Some states have over 100 percent increase.” False: Arizona is the only state with a triple-digit increase. On the other end, a few states saw decreases. The average premium increase across all states was 25 percent. Furthermore, premiums rose much faster under the eight years of President George W. Bush, before the Affordable Care Act was passed in 2010. Another bit of chicanery occurred when he pointed to a table stacked high with file folders and said, “These papers are just some of the many documents that I’ve signed turning over complete and total control [of my businesses] to my sons.” He was referring to a plan to avoid any conflict of interest between his duties as president and his role as the owner of a multi-billion-dollar business by turning the management of his companies over to his sons. So he’s going to put his sons in charge and then not discuss any business matters with them. Believable? And the plan itself? Government ethics gurus from both parties call it ridiculous. Even the pile of papers on the

table were bogus according to several sources who could see the folders. They noted that none of them were labeled and the papers were blank. Reporters were not allowed to touch or examine the documents. So what? you might ask. All politicians misshape the truth. Maybe so. But according to several fact-checking organizations, our new president is a master of dishonesty. For example, Politifact rates 69 percent of his fact-checked statements as Mostly False, False, or Pants on Fire. Seeing all this, I wonder whether Mr. Trump is uninformed, deluded or just plain dishonest. Whatever the case, I hope we citizens are not afraid to speak truth to power, and that we expect those in power to speak truth to us. If we want a spirit of renewed American morality, we must pay careful attention to President Trump’s honesty as he tries to improve our already great nation. Christopher Moore Belle Plaine Dear Editor, The farmers, small businesses and families buying individual insurance policies on the exchange are facing significant premium increases coming from insurance companies. Gov. Dayton and legislative leaders knew this was coming and they all agreed last summer that premium relief for these folks was necessary. Now, we start the legislative session and we’re seeing political gamesmanship getting in the way. Democrats and Gov. Dayton want to provide the 125,000 Minnesotans a simple 25 percent rate reduction. It’s important that it’s done now so people know what policy they want by the Jan. 31 deadline. Unfortunately, Minnesota House and Senate Republicans have taken this idea and loaded up all sorts of political wishlist items, including allowing for-profit insurance companies to enter Minnesota. All of the sweeping policy changes they are pushing for would delay any relief for these hardworking people until 2018. It’s unacceptable to not act now. It’s fine if we’re going to have our policy discussion about insurance but let’s not let that fight delay relief for the people that really need it now. So, please contact your local legislator now!

Buffers are strips of permanent vegetation planted along the edge of a stream, lake or wetland. They help filter out phosphorus, sediment and other pollutants from runoff during rain and snowmelt events, and can help prevent streambanks and shorelines from collapsing and washing out. They are one of many important conservation practices that help keep water clean. For more information, contact the Scott SWCD in Jordan at 952492-5425. A detailed map showing where buffers are required can be viewed online at dnr.state. mn.us/buffers/index.html.

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.

Luke Zilverberg Earns Big 12 Wrestling Honor South Dakota State Universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Luke Zilverberg was honored last week as Co-Big 12 Conference Wrestler of the Week after recording a pair of overtime victories in dual action. A junior 165-pounder from Belle Plaine, Zilverberg helped the 20th-ranked Jackrabbits to convincing home victories over Boise State (37-3) and Northern Colorado (34-6), improving his individual season record to 13-4 overall, 6-1 in duals. After giving up a takedown late in regulation in his match

against Boise Stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Demetrius Romero that forced overtime, Zilverberg came up with a takedown of his own midway through the extra session to pull out the 5-3 win on Jan. 6. Against Northern Coloradoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Keilan Torres â&#x20AC;&#x201D; ranked 14th by FloWrestling â&#x20AC;&#x201D; on Jan. 8, Zilverberg trailed 3-1 in the waning seconds of regulation, but came up with a reversal to send the match to overtime. He then came away with his second 5-3 victory of the weekend with a takedown of Torres 14 seconds into the sudden-victory period.

Scott West Improves to 10-0 in Duals Following Wild Dual at Waconia After beating Tri-City United 50-16 in Montgomery on Thursday night, the Scott West wrestling team travelled to Waconia on Friday for a Section 2AA Showdown dual with the Wildcats that was wrestled in front of a near capacity crowd. The big night of wrestling developed into what would become a classic regular season thriller as the two teams battled it out on Waconiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s purple mat under the spotlight, and when the meet came to an end, it was visiting Scott West that walked out with a hard-fought 26-25 team win. One of those points was tacked on as a criteria point as the visiting Panthers had won eight matches to the home teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s six. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a great night of wrestling by both teams and I think that every wrestling fan got more than their moneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worth tonight,â&#x20AC;? states Scott West cohead coach Darren Ripley. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were very fortunate to get the team win and our kids did a good job in winning eight matches on the night, while the Waconia wrestlers did a really good job of getting bonus point wins and also not giving up bonus points.â&#x20AC;? Bonus points for Scott West were hard to come by all night and it would begin at the start of the meet at 106 pounds as Panther Jacob Hill worked his way to a 7-0 decision over Reece White, which was one point shy of a major decision. It was the second meeting of the season between the two lightweights as they had wrestled in the opening round of the Minnesota Christmas Tournament with Hill taking White to his back for a second period pin. Scott West sophomore Jacob Strack then wrestled his way to a 3-0 win over Waconiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Will Burroughs, and teammate Justin Stauffacher scored a 20-7

I would really like to thank all the parents and volunteers who

helped make this invitational possible. The competition was very intense as it was almost an entire section match up. With Austin not being in our section, our varsity kick team is currently in the third place prospect for the state tournament. We are all very excited and can’t wait to work even harder these next couple of weeks to maintain this placement.

Man Faces Felony Drug Charge

A Belle Plaine man faces two charges, one an alleged felony, related to allegations he was in possessions of drugs early last month. Thor Abdullah George Gardner, 33, is charged with possession of 60 grams (2.12 ounces) of marijuana and a pipe for its consumption. He is due in Scott County District Court for a first appearance Jan. 23. Gardner was stopped on Meridian Street for a speeding violation Dec. 9 at 11:18 p.m.

Slippery Going Closed Highway 169 Drivers heading south on Highway 169 south of Belle Plaine early last Tuesday afternoon (Jan. 10) found the highway closed for part of the afternoon after two semi trucks crashed near the intersection of Highway 169 and Johnson Way shortly after 1 p.m. Preliminary reports indicated one semi was

northbound, lost control and crossed through the median, clipping a southbound semi. There were no injuries reported. Troopers opened a single southbound lane before 3 p.m. and eventually both lanes.

Belle Plaine Pond Hockey Tournament Delayed a Week

Forecasted Temps in Low-40s, Chance of Rain Make Rescheduling an Easy Choice

When members of the Belle Plaine Ice Hockey Association gathered Friday evening to finalize plans on this weekendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual pond hockey tournament, discussion on whether or not to reschedule the event was brief. The association decided to defer the tournament from Saturday (Jan. 21) to next Saturday (Jan. 28). Tournament play will begin around 11 a.m. The championship game is expected to take place around 6 p.m. Temperatures expected this week are not conducive to good ice, said Johnny Egan, the associationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chairman. Highs

should reach the mid- to upper30s and low-40s. The forecasted weather for Saturday (Jan. 21) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; high temperatures reaching the low-40s and a possibility of rain â&#x20AC;&#x201C; made the decision to move the tournament to Jan. 28 an easy one. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to change, but it was unanimous,â&#x20AC;? Egan said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you see a five- or sixday trend like that, you know you have to make a change. That kind of weather would not help the ice at all.â&#x20AC;? Egan said as many as eight teams are expected to participate in the tournament, although the decision to reschedule has at least one team â&#x20AC;&#x201C; two-time defending champion â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jag Bombsâ&#x20AC;? from Prior Lake -- uncertain if it will have enough players available. Teams can have as many as 10 players on their rosters for the four-on-four competition. A handful of teams from the

Belle Plaine area are expected to compete. A team from Mankato is also expected to participate in the tournament. The competition is a fund-raiser for the local ice hockey association. The entry fee is $100 for early registration, $125 for a team registering in the final few days before the competition. The winners will receive $125 and a homemade trophy. Additional teams are still welcome to register, Egan said. Proceeds from the tournament will help the association improve ice hockey in Belle Plaine. Proceeds from last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tournament helped fund new netting and repainting of goals at the rink at Market and Park streets. The association has also previously funded painting of the warming house and one day hopes to buy a sweeper for the rink, Egan said.

WIC Voucher Pick-Up Days

The CAP Agency WIC voucher pick-up dates for all residents of Scott County are Monday through Thursday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.; Friday, 9 a.m. to noon, and 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. The pickups are at the CAP Agency, 712 Canterbury Road South in Shakopee. For more information about WIC, call the CAP Agency WIC Program at 952-402-9869.

The officer noticed the aroma of marijuana emanating from inside the vehicle. He also noticed a â&#x20AC;&#x153;green leafy substanceâ&#x20AC;? on Gardnerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s jacket and pants, according to the criminal complaint. The complaint states Gardner handed the officer a bag of marijuana and a pipe used for smoking it. A search of the vehicle, the criminal complaint states, produced â&#x20AC;&#x153;several more bags of marijuana.â&#x20AC;?

Sibley County Board Will See Final Plans on CIP Bonding Tuesday Sibley County commissioners will see the final version of the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s capital improvement plan Tuesday (Jan. 24), plans that will be funded through bonds the county might issue. The county can issue up to approximately $39.06 million for capital improvement plans. Its maximum debt limit is currently about $97.6 million. CIP bonds could also include just over $6 million for improvements to the Sibley County Courthouse in Gaylord, the Gaylord Hub recently reported.

The facility needs work on his mechanical, heating and ventilation systems. The work would be performed during 2017 and 2018. Sibley County could also issue general obligation bonds authorized by a referendum. Sibley Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s capital improvement plan includes a new server and storage for the tax system, updated computer software, new computers for the global information system, and equipment for the sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office and public works department.

Belle Plaineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s NHS Honorees Belle Plaine High School recently honored its National Honor Society (NHS) members at a ceremony in the Belle Plaine Schools Performing Arts Center. Students in grades 10-12 with a cumulative grade-point average of 3.5 or above are eligible for NHS. Qualified applicants must show strength in scholarship, leadership, character, and service.
