City Expects Limited Public Forum Policy Will Stand Up Cross Expected to be Returned Soon
by Dan Ruud Supporters for return the cross to Veterans Memorial Park left the Belle Plaine City Council chambers happy last Tuesday night as the council voted 3-1 in favor of an amended resolution that will allow the cross to soon be returned to the memorial in
the park. The changes will also make it more difficult for individuals or organizations with little or no affiliation with Belle Plaine to successfully apply for their own monument. Mayor Chris Meyer and council members Theresa McDaniel and Ben Stier voted yes. Cary Coop voted no and Paul Chard was absent. One of the key revisions to the policy states: “The city designates a lim-

ited public forum in Veterans Memorial Park for the express purpose of allowing individuals or organizations to erect and maintain privately-owned displays that honor and memorialize living or deceased veterans, branch of military and veterans organizations affiliated with Belle Plaine.” Another revision to the policy is that only 10 displays will be allowed at a time, not 18. You must also apply to the city to have a display placed in the limited public forum, which the Belle Plaine Veterans group(s) did last Wednesday, also paying the $100 application fee. The city will continue to process requests “in the order they are received.” The new resolution also makes no requirement of having to have a cement platform installed for the display, which cannot be larger 3 feet wide by 2 feet deep by 3 feet tall. Although changes to the resolution will make it more difficult for national organizations, including the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF), to successfully apply for their own monument in Veterans Park, no one on the council or

Members of the Belle Plaine City Council and School Board met Friday evening (Feb. 24) to discuss the possibility of creating a community center, most likely on school district-owned land. It would ideally be a catalyst for residential and commercial growth in the community.
B.P., District See Community Center as Catalyst to Growth City, School District to Work on Committee Application
Hoping to enjoy a similar kind of growth Chaska, Shoreview and other communities enjoyed in the early-1990s, the school district and city are looking to a community center as an amenity that will help draw people to Belle Plaine. The feeling is a community center would be one of the amenities making Belle Plaine a more attractive destination for visitors and a community where people will want to raise a fam-
ily. The envisioned growth of the city from about 6,700 toward a population of 10,000 would help attract more corporate chain businesses that would support a larger community and relieve some of the tax burden a growth community faces. The notion Belle Plaine could one day enjoy a community center, most likely on land the school district owns near the tennis-football-track athletic complex and Oak Crest Elementary School on West Commerce Drive was the topic of a joint meeting between the city council and school board Friday evening (Feb. 24). Without an objection to the concept, the two elected bodies informally
agreed to jointly begin working on the creation of a blind application process where people could express interest in serving on a committee to help solidify and shape the vision of what a community center might include. Mayor Chris Meyer is concerned the discussion will have people fearing an imminent tax hike. He wants residents to think about what they want for their community as it grows. Meyer stressed no decisions have been made. “It’s a discussion,” he said. Belle Plaine and its school dis-

Five Panthers Qualify for State Individual Wrestling Tourney Scott West Takes on Totino-Grace in Team Quarterfinals 9 a.m. Thursday
by Dan Ruud Three Section 2AA Individual Wrestling Tournament champions and two runners-up will represent Scott West at this Friday’s and Saturday’s Minnesota State High School Class 2A Individual Tournament at Xcel Energy Center in downtown St. Paul. Winning championships in their respective weight classes at this past Saturday’s section individual tournament at Waseca High School for Scott West and their respective weight classes were junior Jackson Stauffacher (126), sophomore Tyler Shackle (132) and junior Tyler Buesgens (182). Also qualifying individually for state by placing second in their weight classes were senior Parker Huss (138) and junior Jack Fogarty (145). This year’s section individual tournament was wrestled entirely in one day on Saturday.
A winter storm in Waseca and elsewhere in southern Minnesota forced the cancellation of the traditional Friday evening session, making for a long, busy day of wrestling on Saturday. Last year, Stauffacher advanced all the way to the 126pound championship, where he lost to unbeaten Tucker Sjomeling of Delano, who is wrestling at 132 pounds this year. In 2015, Stauffacher placed fourth in his weight division. Shackle is making his first appearance in the state individual tournament, while Buesgens is making his second after placing fourth last year. Huss placed fourth in his weight class at the 2015 state individual tournament. For a second straight year, sophomore Justin Stauffacher (120) just missed the state cut by placing third. Fellow sophomore Calvin Menke (220) also placed third (see section recap story inside). According to The Guillotine’s latest rankings on Feb. 24, Buesgens (25-2) is ranked No. 1 in the state in Class 2A at 182 pounds but received the No. 2 seed for the state individual
tourney. The top seed is Jared Florell of Totino-Grace (37-2). Jackson Stauffacher is ranked No. 2 at 126 pounds and is the No. 2 seed for the state tournament behind Jake Gliva of Simley (41-2). Huss is ranked No. 5 at 138 and Fogarty is No. 9 at 145. Shackle was not ranked in The Guillotine’s latest rankings. The first two rounds of the state Class 2A individual tournament will be held Friday, followed by the semifinals and championships on Saturday. The first day of the tournament (Thursday) will be devoted to the team tournaments, after which all three champions (Class 1A, 2A and 3A) will be crowned (see accompanying Class 2A team schedules). Below is a listing of Friday’s individual Class 2A tourney first-round match ups involving Scott West wrestlers (season records are in parenthesis). Class 2A first-round matches start at

by Dan Ruud The Belle Plaine City Council last Tuesday night voted 4-0 (Paul Chard was absent) to approve sign variances for the Ridgeview Medical Center/ Lutheran Home Health Campus that is currently under construction near the intersection of Highway 169 and County Road 3/Meridian Street in Belle Plaine. Ridgeview requested an increase in maximum sign squarefootage (from 150 to 200) for two freestanding monument signs that will be positioned near Meridian Street South and Commerce Drive West, both of which will be 200 square feet (see accompanying drawing). Staff reported that the situation to which the variances relate is unique in that the uniform sign plan relates to the health campus, which will be a mixed-use and residential planned-unit development consisting of 55 residential dwellings, a up to three-story medical complex, and 10,000 square feet of health and wellness space to be leased to a variety of users. “As such, the uniform signs relate to all uses on the property as opposed to a single sign for each use of the property, resulting in a consistent design product and a reduced number of signs overall,” stated staff’s report. No one spoke at the public hearing that preceded the council’s vote. In another agenda item related to the Ridgeview/Lutheran Home campus, the council adopted an assessment policy for water and sewer connection fees associated with the project. The connection fees total
$401,720, of which Ridgeview will pay 20 percent ($80,344). The remainder of the fees will be assessed equally over six years at the prime interest rate (set annually on Dec. 1). In other business last Tuesday night, the council unanimously authorized staff to obtain quotes for components for lighting downtown trees along city sidewalks from the ground up. Last summer, the council authorized the city engineering firm of Bolton and Menk to prepare plans for a design committee proposal to uplight eight (possibly up to 14) trees in downtown Belle Plaine. Public Works Superintendent Al Fahey reported that rather than “hanging” lights on the trees for decorative purposes, a viable alternative is to uplight the trees from the ground up with LED lights. The lights would be installed in-ground with the availability of colored light streams. “Last year, the design committee asked to look into the
possibility of lighting the trees downtown for aesthetics and safety,” reported Public Works Superintendent Al Fahey. “The committee looked into different options and decided that uplighting could possibly be the best long-term solution.” Fahey added that the estimated cost for 32 lights and controllers is $40,000, while installation ($20,000) and stamped-colored concrete ($20,000) brings the total estimated cost of the project to $80,000. The city will utilize $13,000 donated by the chamber of commerce to help pay for the cost. Reallocated general capital funds will cover the remaining cost, which Fahey said will be reimbursed through future donations pledged by the chamber of commerce. Plans are to have the lights installed and the trees lit later this year. *Unanimously approved the plans and specifications and authorized the advertisement

The Belle Plaine High School YES Club recently attended the winter workshop held in Mankato. Students learned about ways to improve the energy consumption of their homes and were treated to a tour of the Mankato public safety building, which is a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Gold certified green building. Pictured, from left, are Carlos MelendezTrujillo, Josh Finger, Noah Ellingsworth, Isaiah Trimbo, Kenzie Bergland and Kate Haege.
BPHS Students Among Those Who Attended Youth Energy Summit Forty-five students and teachers from Youth Energy Summit (YES!) teams at WestbrookWalnut Grove High School, New Prague Alternative Learning Center, Sleepy Eye Public and St. Mary’s High schools, Belle Plaine High School and Mankato West High School participated in the recent Using Passive and Active Strategies to Design Buildings Winter Workshop at Centenary United Methodist Church in Mankato. This workshop gave students a window into the world of environmentally and energy friendly building design, allowing them to connect with experts and gain information to position them for success as they excel in team-based projects this school year. Students spent the day with multiple presenters, learning about passive and active energy strategies to building design. Kitty Stratton, consultant for SunWindLight and plans examiner for the city of Minneapolis, began the day with a presentation on passive energy saving strategies, meaning the buildings discussed were ultra-low energy buildings from utilizing natural elemental factors of a location. Long ago, these types of building strategies were common knowledge, using familiarity with weather, wind, solar radiation and moisture to dictate their housing structures. Over time, those skills and knowledge had been lost but we are now starting to gain back that consciousness as NetZero homes, a building producing as much energy as it uses, are being built and people are more aware of their energy usage. This is a major improvement since average household size is decreasing while average square footage is increasing. Stratton had the students pick two materials out of her pile of Styrofoam, insulation, pool noodles, cloth and more. Their task was to insulate a glass of hot water to see how close they could keep the temperature to the initial reading two hours later. Each team chose different materials and had various levels of success. The most successful team used Styrofoam and encapsulated the glass in it. Stratton then went on to talk about how important insulation is to minimizing energy loss in a building. Along with proper insulation, Stratton emphasized the importance of using what is free to us. Positioning windows in correct locations can allow solar energy to be utilized to warm a space on its own or with the help of Trombe or water walls. The idea of the walls is for the materials to collect heat from the sun and store it to be released at night when the free heating source, the sun, disappears. Since 35 percent of heating or cooling is lost through windows, good quality windows are a huge factor to energy savings. Another free resource is wind. Using natural ventilation cuts down on cooling costs, and if done properly, can eliminate the need for an air-conditioner. These are just a few of the many passive energy options to put into practice. Gary Schollmeier, active energy efficiency enthusiast and NetZero homeowner, finished up the morning discussing active energy strategies for homes. He says that the cleanest, safest and cheapest energy is energy that one does not use. Since it would be very difficult to not
use any energy in today’s world, Gary discussed options of energy creation that are healthier for the earth. He started with solar and the various types available and moved into geothermal and wind. Technology is expanding to make it easier for the general homeowner to choose these types of energy options. In the afternoon, Todd Miller, director of the Mankato Public Safety Center, made a presentation. The center was awarded the Gold Certification as a LEED building. LEED certification means that the building has gone through rigorous steps to become more sustainable and is awarded points for each implementation, which then determines what level of certification is achieved. The building was completely gutted with a replaced roof during construction. Energy
Star appliances, building materials and decorations made of recycled content, and locally derived and reused materials make up just a few of the many aspects that gave this building such a high rating. It is a mere seven points from qualifying for Platinum Certification, which is an impressive feat. Their solar panel array located on the roof, an active energy strategy, will be owned after six years of renting. The rent payment is covered by the price of electricity produced, so having the panels installed costs nothing for the center. Participants left with a broader knowledge on what is available for sustainable building options and that there are many possibilities for their schools and communities to engage in. It takes research and hard work, but there is hope for sustainable living to be commonplace.

After the 20-week ultrasound, Matt & Sarah Smith of Belle Plaine were told their baby had Dandy-Walker malformation (DW), a condition in which part of the brain is missing. They were told their baby may live a day, a week, a month or years but her quality of life wouldn’t be there. Her parents chose to love her and hold her as long as they could, and their beautiful baby girl, Payton Faith, was born at 34 weeks. At 5 weeks Payton had open heart surgery, and since then she has had two surgeries for feeding tubes and in August had brain surgery. Payton has PT & OT three times a week to help combat balance issues and low muscle tone associated with DW. She has brought many people’s faith back, made people believe in miracles and brings a smile to everyone’s face. She is the little sister to Taylor (9) and Austin (6).

of bids for the cityâ€™s 2017 street and utility improvement project. The public hearing for the proposed improvements was held on Aug. 15. The project is proposed to consist of street reconstruction and utility improvements on West Main Street between Buffalo and Crest streets, and Elk Street between West Main and State streets. The cost of the project at the time of the public hearing in August was a little over $1.2 million, about 72 percent of which would be paid for by the city and 28 percent by beneďŹ tting property owners.

Draheim, Area State Senators Back End to Sunday Liquor Sales Ban Belle Plaineâ€™s representative in the Minnesota Senate, State Sen. Rich Draheim (R-Madison Lake), along with area state senators backed the Senateâ€™s version of the bill ending the ban on Sunday liquor sales in Minnesota. Sens. Scott Jensen, R-Waconia, Scott Newman, R-Hutchinson, and Eric Pratt, R-Prior Lake joined Draheim, in passing a bill to end the longtime ban. The bill passed by a bipartisan vote, 38-28. House File 30 would let liquor stores sell beer, wine, and alcohol between the hours of 11 a.m. and 6 p.m on Sundays, while continuing to prohibit de-
liveries and merchandising on that day. The House version of the bill passed last month. It allows liquor stores to open an hour earlier than the Senate version. Before Gov. Dayton can sign the bill, it will return to the House where they will choose to either accept the Senate version or request a conference committee. Belle Plaineâ€™s representative in the Minnesota House, Rep. Bob Vogel, R-Elko New Market, backed the House version of the bill. Reps. Jim Nash, RWaconia, and Tony Albright, R-Prior Lake, voted yes. Rep. Glenn Gruenhagen, R-Glencoe, voted against ending the ban.
Mom Files Suit to Have Her Children Returned A Minnesota mother of two minor children, along with the grandmother of the children, ďŹ led suit against the stateâ€™s Commissioner of the Department of Human Services, Scott County, and two Native American communities and their tribal courts for usurpation of parental rights. Kimberly Watso and her mother, Kaleen Dietrich, charge that the Minnesota Department of Human Services and Scott County handed Watsoâ€™s two minor children over to the jurisdiction of tribal courts without a state hearing. According to the ďŹ led case, Watso, who is not Native American, has not received her constitutionally guaranteed due process and is being unlawfully deprived of her children. â€œThis mother is being deprived of her parental rights for the prejudicial fact that her childrenâ€™s biological fathers are each members of a tribal nation. Ms. Watso is not a Native American Indian, yet her children have been ripped away from her by tribal law that she is not subject to,â€? explained attorney Erick Kaardal. â€œThe actions of Minnesotaâ€™s Department of Human Services, Scott County and the tribal courts
have violated the Indian Child Welfare Actâ€™s requirement for a state court hearing and parental consent before transfer to a tribal court,â€? he added. â€œThis mother has had her children taken away illegally. Her parental rights have been wrongfully and grievously violated.â€? In concern for her childrenâ€™s wellbeing, states she has persevered through two years of legally unauthorized tribal court proceedings. â€œIn Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community, I am treated as a second-rate person because I am not Indian,â€? shared Watso. â€œI do not believe my children and I should be subjected to this courtroom bias. It has taken a psychological toll on me and has long-ranging negative repercussions for my children.â€? Watso does not believe the tribal court and tribal social services to be safe or beneďŹ cial for her minor children. Watso declared, â€œThe cultural environment created by the tribal court and tribal social services makes it impossible for my children to remain safe and healthy.â€? Minnesota Commissioner of the Department of Human Services, Emily Piper, is named in the suit.
Gaylord, Arlington Talking Merging Police Departments
While Gaylord City Council members feel the city has more to lose than gain, the city will pursue discussions on merging its police department with Arlingtonâ€™s department. Gaylord Police Chief Tony Padilla said the proposal can work in the long run. Initially, the proposed merged department would be an operational challenge. Issues to be addressed, the Gaylord Hub recently reported, include hours of patrol, stafďŹ ng and equipment. Arlingtonâ€™s police budget is about $70,000 smaller than Gaylordâ€™s. Arlingtonâ€™s 2016 police department budget of $294,000 included a police chief, two full-time ofďŹ cers and two part-timers. The part-time positions were eliminated this
year in favor of a contract with the county sheriffâ€™s ofďŹ ce. Gaylord budgeted $365,000 for its police department in 2016. The department includes a chief, three full-time ofďŹ cers and three part-timers. Arlington is currently without a police chief. Padilla said his departmentâ€™s commitment to community policing has ofďŹ cers giving two hours a month of time to community schools and community organizations. Gaylord City Councilors fear losing the community focuses if the departments were merged. Padilla said the structure and services offered by a merged department would determine the budget if the two cities agree to the merger.

Ben Gregory (left) and Terry Buesgens worked together on welding the cross back onto the veterans memorial Friday (Feb. 24). The memorial was created by Joe Gregory, Benâ€™s late grandfather and Buesgensâ€™ father-in-law. The memorial will eventually be returned to the park in a limited public forum.
Public Forum (continued from page 1)
City Administrator Mike Votka will be surprised if they do not receive a grievance or threatened legal action. Prior to the councilâ€™s vote last Tuesday, Coop addressed the audience of cross supporters, telling them why he was going to vote no again to allowing the cross to be returned to the park. â€œI feel there should be no religious symbols on city property . . . This is a gamble I donâ€™t think is worth taking,â€? said Coop, adding that he sees â€œa lack of enthusiastic supportâ€? from the League of Minnesota Cities on the matter. Coop then summarized a couple of examples where cities were taken to court, including Knoxville, Iowa, and King, N.C., for having a silhouette of a soldier kneeling next to a cross displayed on government property, and the results were costly for both Knoxville and King in terms of court costs, etc., and in both cases the battle was lost. According to a press release issued by the city of King in 2015, King had already incurred more than $50,000 in legal fees and costs and estimated that litigation costs would have approached $2 million, exceeding the cityâ€™s $1 million insurance coverage. The city was also facing the loss of that insurance coverage if the matter proceeded to trial, according to the release. Chard, who along with Coop voted no on Feb. 6 to allow the cross to be returned to Veterans Park, was on a pre-planned vacation last Tuesday night but issued the following statement in the councilâ€™s packet. â€œAs for the proposal in front of the Belle Plaine Council this evening, I feel the Alliance Defending Freedom (which has vowed to defend the city should legal matters arise) should establish a retainer or escrow of funds before the resolution is passed to pay all legal fees that the Belle Plaine City and Taxpayers may incur on this issue. If this request cannot be met, please consider tabling the issue until additional information can be obtained. â€œI feel this is a fair request to be made in the best interest of the Belle Plaine Citizens as we were told the city will not incur any expenses as explained to the council by Mr. Andy Parrish,â€? Chard continued. Parrish has been the Defend Belle Plaine Veterans Park group main Herald spokesperson both at the Feb. 6 council meeting and on social media. He was the one who introduced Doug Wardlow, an attorney for Alliance Defending Freedom to the council on Feb. 6. Wardlow said the limited pub-

for displays in the park other than from the Belle Plaine Veterans Club. He also had not received any grievances or ofďŹ cial threats of legal action by any organizations. On Friday, Ben Gregory of Belle Plaine completed welding the cross back onto the display in preparation for its imminent return to Veterans Park. The display was created by Gregoryâ€™s late grandpa, Joe Gregory, who donated it to the park.
lic forum proposal is a sound legal tool to defeat the FFRF. However, when asked, Wardlow could not guarantee that lawsuits from the FFRF or other groups will not follow. Belle Plaine City Attorney Bob Vose, who also addressed the audience on Feb. 6, did not make any such assurances either. As of this past Tuesday morning, City Administrator Mike Votka said that he had not received any other applications

Thirty Years Ago This Week
Shamrock Hunt Begins Belle Plaine's 2017 Shamrock Medallion Hunt begins with the accompanying clue. The medallion is hidden within the city limits (not north of the railroad tracks). It is located on public property and is not more than 6 feet off the ground. It’s also not located on the Historical House property or “inside” the Tiger Park baseball field. The medallion is about 2 inches in diameter and has “Belle Plaine St. Patrick’s Day” inscribed on it. The prize for finding it is $100. The Shamrock Medallion Hunt is a community event. Participants do not need to be of Irish descent. If you find it, call Don
Meger at 952-454-6492. If the medallion is not found this week, a second clue will be published in next Wednesday's Herald. A third clue, if necessary, will appear March 15. This year's parade and festivities will take place Saturday, March 18. The St. Patrick’s Committee will meet 5:30 p.m. this Thursday at Red Door Bar downtown. Any Belle Plaine High School junior girls of Irish descent interested in becoming a candidate for Miss Shamrock are asked to contact the school office or call Jeanette Gloege at 952-873-6684.
The Sullivan Sisters will lead the parade, St. Patrick’s Day traditions will soon be displayed. Whippers and zippers and maybe some slippers, Practice makes perfect for all you trippers. Hocus-Pocus are the words, Mumbo-Jumbo for the birds, Hoity-Toity has the nerve, treasure hunters come in herds.
A Day at the Zoo In February of 1987, 48 Belle Plaine fourth-graders from Mrs. Logelin’s and Mrs. Eintertson’s classes spent the day at the Minnesota Zoological Gardens in Apple Valley as part of as two-week unit on the Northern Trail. The students wore T-shirts they had designed themselves, using fabric crayons to transfer pictures of their favorite zoo animal. Students and faculty were evacuated from Belle Plaine High School that Thursday following a telephone call from an unidentified caller saying a bomb was set to go off at 9:15 a.m. Mary Pat Murphy, secretary at the school, received the phone call at 8:10 a.m. Fifteen minutes after the bomb was supposed to go off, law enforcement personnel checked the building and all of the lockers. Nothing suspicious was found. It was the first bomb threat at the school in 18 years. Sales of $5.5 million for the past year was the big news given to stockholders at the 69th annual meeting of the Belle Plaine Cooperative at the Belle Plaine Elementary School dining room. “It’s been a good year,” said Wilmer Schmidt, manager of the cooperative. The 1987 St. Patrick’s Parade and festivities would take place March 14. There were nine Miss Shamrock contestants – Angie Berger, Geri Devine, Julie Duffy, Molly Hartmann, Jill Morrison, Shannon Morrison, Jean Schultz, Becky Stender and Lisa Witt. Catherine Buesgens, a lifelong resident of Belle Plaine, celebrated her 100th birth on March 4. She was a resident of the Lutheran Home and member of Our Lady of the Prairie Catholic Church. When asked about turning 100, she said, “I don’t feel any different yet.” Belle Plaine’s Congregate Dining program celebrated its sixth anniversary with a party, but had to say goodbye to the woman who had been with the program for those six years, first as a cook and more recently as site manager. Lois Davis resigned her position to accept a position as assistant manager at Skluzacek’s truck stop, convenience store and restaurant in Norwood. Leon Thomason leased the former Jim and Sky’s Tavern from Wally Fahey Jr. Thomason and his wife, Colleen, would run the tavern. Andy Fogarty of Belle Plaine was one of 60 high school se-
niors named a Minnesota High School All-Star that season. BPSH’s Jim Buesgens qualified for the 1987 Minnesota State Wrestling Tournament after placing second in the Region 4A Tournament in the 132-pound class. Teammate Andy Fogarty placed third at 138 pounds. Fellow Tigers Jason Piche (98 pounds) and Brian Stier (heavyweight) both placed fourth. The BPHS boys’ basketball team completed the regular season with a 63-47 victory over Mankato Loyola. Matt Lenz led Belle Plaine with 18 points and 11 rebounds. The Tigers finished 9-5 in the conference, good for sole possession of third place. They were 13-6 overall heading into District 13 play. The Tiger girls’ basketball team defeated Le Center 4727 in the first round of the district tournament before losing to Montgomery in the second round 45-41. Belle Plaine had finished 4-10 in conference play.
60 Years Ago (1957)
Taking top honors in the second annual barrow show in Belle Plaine was Ray Sullivan of Derrynane Township, whose crossbreeds took the grand champion honors in both pen and individual class. Earl Schmidt of Belle Plaine again exhibited the reserve champion pen, which was a duplication of his placing at the 1956 show. Mr. and Mrs. Russell Harsh were called to Boyceville, Wis., on account of the death of Mr. Harsh’s father, George Harsh, 78, who died suddenly. Rev. Thomas J. Coleman, former pastor at Assumption, died while vacationing in Florida. He was 51 years old. Patricia Anne Bowser, daughter of Mrs. Fern Bowser of Le Sueur, became the bride of Paul R. Keup, son of Mr. and Mrs. Fred J. Keup of Belle Plaine. Township candidates who filed in Belle Plaine were Harry Otto

for supervisor, Tony Schultz for treasurer and Herbert Reinke for assessor. In Blakeley, the filers were Wilmer J. Woestehoff for supervisor, A.J. Kreger for treasurer and E.E. Schultz for assessor. In Hancock, they were Robert J. Anderson for supervisor, Werner Rolf for treasurer and Emil Anderson for assessor. At the Belle Plaine Livestock Market, quite a number of stacks of hay had been set up on the grounds and one of the stacks caught fire. From 200 to 250 bales of hay were destroyed before the firemen got the blaze under control. Mrs. William Gruetzmacher, native of Belle Plaine Township, died at the New Prague hospital. She was 73 years old. Many relatives and friends attended a double birthday party at the Louis Lieske home for Mrs. Louis Lieske and Mrs. Otto Schultz. Patricia Des Rosiers, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Jos. Des Rosiers of Detroit, Mich., became the bride of Jos. H. Gill Jr., son of Mr. and Mrs. Jos. Gill of Belle Plaine. Joseph P. Sisterman, veteran Omaha railroad employee, retired after 61 years in the service of the road. Of those 61 years, 50 were spent as station agent in Belle Plaine.
90 Years Ago (1927)
There was a break-in at the Triangle Motor Co. garage and the thief took a complete set of casings, inner tubes and a battery, apparently seeking only items he was in need of. There was a gathering at the Thomas Lochen Sr. home near Union Hill to help the aged man celebrate his 90th birthday. Reuben Frank held an auction on his farm preparatory to moving into Belle Plaine to take a position with Messenbring Bros. garage. The estate of the late Mrs. Wilhelmina Nagel sold the 160-acre farm in Blakeley Township to Henry Nagel of Le Sueur, who would have one of his boys take over and run it. Death took Mrs. Chas. Siemon at the age of 82. Born in Springfield, Mass., she arrived
with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Francis Bliss, in 1856 and Belle Plaine Township was her home ever since. After an absence of 24 years, H.C. Diers of Bellingham, Wash., was back to look over the scenes of his youth in the Belle Plaine-Blakeley neighborhoods. Over a thousand persons witnessed the presentation of “The Womanless Wedding” held two nights at Dooley Hall. The mysterious bride proved to be J.S. Effertz. Eighty characters made of the cast. Belle Plaine was invited to join the Southern Minny baseball league that season. The town was represented at the organization meeting held in Mankato, but the rule adopted there, no more than four “outside” players, was not acceptable to Ed Eckardt and associates, so membership was declined. About 200, mostly farmers in the area, were at the high school to take in the debate on the McNary-Haugen farm bill between the debating teams of St. Thomas College of St. Paul and G.A. College of St. Peter. Before the debate started, it was ruled to be a no decision debate. The village of Cologne elected a woman as its mayor, Mrs. J. Knotz. It was the first time a woman was elected to an executive office in Carver County.
My spot in the rotation is of the utmost importance, I’m on the warning track, I’m using my endorphins. The fight for the cross was a great testimonial, Reinstalling it will be truly ceremonial. It’s better safe than sorry, alleviate the worry, St. Patrick’s Day fun, a parade at one, show us your scurry. I spy with my little eye, using caution as I go, Be vigilant in your request, pester power to and fro. Don’t upset the apple cart, enough is enough, I’d like to be notified of all this McStuff. You must be alert, batten down the hatches, I’m as mad as a hatter, don’t play with matches. But OZ never did give nothin’ to the tin man, The Killian, kiss and cry, it’s part of the game plan.

The school board accepted the plan of Architect Gerlach for its new building, the estimated cost of which was $7,000. About all our business and professional men signed up as charter members of the new civic body – the Belle Plaine Board of Trade. There were three complete tickets in the field for town offices in Belle Plaine Township that spring. The biggest snowstorm of the winter came that week, leaving a half-foot of heavy quality snow. Hastings and Anoka battled hard for the location of the new state hospital. The legislature split appropriation between both towns.

The participating 5th through 8th graders had won their local contests. It took a record setting 47 rounds to name a champion, and that was Briana Joseph from Fairmont. Briana, a 7th grade student from Fairmont Jr./Sr. High School, was named champion after correctly spelling “carious” as her championship word. She will attend the National Spelling Bee in Washington DC. Emily Spieker, an 8th grader from Dakota Meadows Middle School, came in second. The top spellers also included 3rd place Jack Nesnidal from Shakopee West Junior High and 4th place, our own Emily Sullivan, from Le Sueur-Henderson Middle School. Emily Sullivan exited the bee in round 14 on “azimuth” and Nesnidal erred in his spelling of “lieutenant.” A nice crowd attended the St. Patrick Fish Fry Friday night. Eddie and Denise Halloran enjoyed their meal and we enjoyed their company. Others we spotted were Father George Grafsky, John and Susie Smisek, Ron and Lois Solheid,
and so many more. Shannon Halloran, Eddie and Denise’s, is studying nursing at St. Mary’s in Rochester. More on Shannon later. Congratulations to Mason Rutt on advancing to the 2017 MSHSL Wrestling Tournament! They will wrestle at the Excel Energy Center in St. Paul on Friday, March 3 at 11 a.m. Mason’s folks are Joe and Jenny and his proud grandparents are Gary and Shirley. Anna Baumgard from Buffalo celebrated her 8th birthday having fun with family and friends in St. Cloud roller skating last Sunday. Once in a while, deer will wander out of the hills and feed off of what’s left over of the bean field or in front of our house, and around the yard. Yesterday, a deer followed our big cat and then chased it a ways. Hilarious! Great entertainment. Have a good one, folks.

Cologne Mulls Carver County’s Request for Tax Hikes for Roads Like other area commuters, Cologne residents want good roads supporting a smooth flow of traffic for residential and commercial growth in the county. But they are also sensitive to increasing taxes to pay for those roads. Monday (March 6, 7 p.m.), the Cologne City Council will vote whether or not it will endorse Carver County’s proposal for a ½ percent local option sales tax, a $20 vehicle excise tax and increasing the existing wheelage tax from $10 to $20 dedicated to road projects in the county. Carver County’s plan is based on what it says is a $128 million funding shortfall in needed road projects over the next 24 years. The road projects are primarily in the eastern and southern half of Carver County and include expansion of Highway 212 from Carver to Cologne and from Cologne to Norwood Young America. The proposed tax increases, if approved, are expected to generate about $5 million annually for local use. The state highway investment plan does not include any money to expand state roads in Carver County, said County Administrator David Hemze. The Metropolitan Council, through its regional solicitation process, has chosen to distribute federal funds by focusing on transit, non-motorized vehicles, and preservation of roads and bridges, as opposed to expanding and building new roads, he said. Other high-priority unfunded projects include expansion of segments of Highway 41 in Chaska and Highway 5 from Chanhassen into Victoria. Led by Public Works Director Lyndon Robjent and Commissioner Jim Ische of Hancock Township, officials from Carver County presented their proposal for the to tax increases to the Cologne City Council Tuesday (Feb. 21). Council members said they would stay in tune with their constituents on the issue and pay some attention to
feedback via social media. The proposal adds ½ percent to the amount of any otherwise taxable purchase within Carver County. The excise tax would be applied to the purchase of new and used vehicles. Existing vehicles will be covered by the annual wheelage tax. The county is proposing increasing that tax from $10 to $20. The county expects the ½ percent sales tax increase will account for about $102 million of the $128 million revenue increase over 24 years.
No Help Forthcoming
The county’s ability to approve proposed taxes is a sign the state will not be providing the funding needed to maintain or expand the state and local roads in a growing county, Hemze said. The county can use that money itself, or use it to try and leverage additional millions in state and federal funding as Scott County did at the intersection of Highway 169 and Highway 41/County Road 78 in Jackson Township. County officials and commissioners are presenting the proposed tax increases to city councils. They presented the information to the Carver County Township Association during the association’s annual meeting in January. The county estimates the additional ½ percent tax will cost the average taxpayer about $2.61 per month. Mayor Matt Lein said he could support the proposal, especially if it keeps locally raised revenue in Carver County. But, the mayor said, he was uncertain if his opinion was representative of the community’s desires. The county board is planning a 9 am work session Tuesday, March 28. Depending on board direction, we may then hold a public hearing on Tuesday, April 18, 4 pm., Ische said. The earliest potential adoption of the proposed taxes is Tuesday, May 2. “I am interested in listening to additional feedback on the
proposal before committing to a vote,” he said. Scott County implemented a similar local-option sales tax for roads in 2015. In other action at the Jan. 21 meeting, the Cologne City Council: • Paid bills totaling $52,099.20. • Granted a request for the Cologne Lions Club for a charitable gambling permit for May 13. • Discussed using tablet computers valued at no more than $550 apiece to replace printed agendas and meeting materials for city council members. The tablets are intended to save on printing costs as well as staff time. The council directed staff to continue researching the issue. • Agreed to a one-year renewable contract with City Administrator Jesse Dickson. The contract included the standard allocations of vacation, sick time and personal days. An atwill employee, Dickson is the last city administrator in Carver County to receive an employment contract.
County Board OKs Raises for its Staff Attorneys
Approving raises that are in line with wage hikes other unionized employee groups have received, the Scott County Board recently approved wage increases for attorneys in the county attorney’s office. The raises, approved on the consent agenda without discussion, include a 2½ percent increase in 2017, a 2 percent hike for both 2018 and ’19. The increases add $97,000 to the county’s payroll in 2017, $92,000 in 2018 and $95,000 the following year.

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.

BELLE PLAINE HERALD, BELLE PLAINE, MINNESOTA
Section 2AA Individual Recap Scott West had three Section 2AA individual champions as Jackson Stauffacher (126), Tyler Shackle (132) and Tyler Buesgens (182) each won their respective weight brackets in Waseca on Saturday. Those three will be joined by Parker Huss (138) and Jack Fogarty (145), who both wrestled their way back to second place finishes in their respective weight brackets. It would be a rematch of last year’s Section 2AA 126-pound championship match in Waseca as Jackson Stauffacher went to the mat to take on Hutchinson’s Brock Luthens. Both of the wrestlers are juniors and Luthens was looking to avenge his 5-0 championship loss to Stauffacher last year. With the score tied 1-1 in the third period, Stauffacher used a head shuck to power behind Luthens for what would be the 3-2 matchwinning take down. “Luthens tried and did slow the pace of the mat action down,” states Scott West co-head coach Darren Ripley. “Jackson did a good job of keeping his composure and not getting too frustrated with this tactic, and the fact that he was also denied a couple of other really good scoring opportunities along the edge of the mat.” Scott West sophomore Tyler Shackle was denied an individual spot in the state tournament last year when he lost a 7-4 semifinal match to WatertownMayer’s Carter Entinger at 106 pounds. However, on this day in Waseca, the results would be different as Shackle won to advance to the championship round at 132, where he won a hard-fought 3-1 semifinal match over Mankato West junior Josh Block. Shackle then dominated Hutchinson’s Tate Card in the championship match as he used three take downs and a near fall for a 10-0 win. “Tyler wrestled a very solid
tournament and had a good combination of offense and defense,” suggests Ripley. “It was a tough section tournament result for him last year, so it’s really good to see him bounce back and win the championship this year.” Just as his teammate (Stauffacher) had done earlier in the night at 126 pounds, junior Tyler Buesgens defended his 182pound section title that he had won a year ago. This championship win did not come easy for the Panther standout as he was pressed in a hard six-minute match by Hutchinson’s Josh Filk. Although Buesgens had a big first period throw that sent Filk to his back, it was ruled to be off the mat by the referee and the wrestling action continued with no score and that’s the way it stood after two periods. The third period was won by Buesgens as he was the recipient of a stall call point and then iced the 4-0 win with a solid take down and ride out. “It was good for Tyler to get a good, tough match like that before the state tournament,” cites Ripley. “You have to give the Hutchinson wrestler a lot of credit for coming to the mat and wrestling six hard minutes.” Scott West senior Parker Huss had to take the hard route to qualify for the state tournament this year. After pinning his way through the Section 2AA championships to win the 120-pound title last year, Huss dropped a 4-0 semifinal match to Waconia’s Tim Stapleton. After the loss, Huss worked his way back through the consolation bracket, where he won a big 5-2 decision over Hutchinson’s Cody Anderson, and when Stapleton won a 7-1 championship bout over Tri-City United’s Justin Kopet, Huss was back in business with a true second wrestleback match against Kopet. Huss had beaten Kopet twice during the season and he made it three
in a row as he made a solid second period take down stand up for the 3-2 win and earn his individual ticket to the state tournament. “It was great to see Parker bounce back and wrestle well after a tough semifinals loss,” states Ripley. “You have to give the Waconia wrestler a lot of credit for wrestling a great tournament and giving that second opportunity, but Parker also had to make good on that second opportunity and he beat a couple of pretty good wrestlers in doing so.” It would also be Scott West junior Jack Fogarty who would make good on a second opportunity as he wrestled his way back to a true second place finish after losing a 9-1 semifinal match to eventual 145-pound champion Tyler Wagener of Waconia. Fogarty, who entered the season as a leading candidate for a Scott West most improved wrestler, put some of that improvement on display as he beat New Prague’s Trevor Skogerboe 10-0 to advance to state. After securing the opening take down, Fogarty locked Wagener up and took him to his back for a three-point nearfall cradle and a 5-0 first period lead. “Jack’s had to battle through a mid-season injury, so he has been toughing some things out,” contends Ripley. Other Panthers placing but falling short of qualifying for state Saturday were Jacob Strack (fifth at 113), Justin Stauffacher (third at 120), Jace Demmers (sixth at 152), Jon Huss (fifth at 160), Deshawn Carter (fourth at 170), Dylan Aslakson (sixth at 195), Calvin Menke (third at 220) and Ben Alexander (sixth at heavyweight). Scott West freshman Colton Bahr competed for the Panthers at 106 and did not place in the top six of his weight class.

Tigers Finish Regular Season Roaring by Dan Ruud The Belle Plaine High School girls’ basketball team started the 2016-17 season with two wins in a row and ended the regular season with three wins in a row with a 70-51 triumph at Breck School in Golden Valley last Tuesday night. In between those two winning streaks the Tigers mustered just one win on their way to a 6-20 overall record, two of those victories coming against winless Le Sueur-Henderson. All that added up a No. 7 seed for Belle Plaine in the eightteam Section 2AA, North Subsection Tournament that got underway Tuesday night after this edition of the Herald went to press. The Tigers were at No. 2 seed St. Peter, which finished 20-4 in the regular season, with one of those wins accounting for No. 1 seed Norwood Young America’s only loss of the season. NYA hosted No. 8 seed LS-H in another subsection quarterfinal game Tuesday night. The Belle Plaine/St. Peter winner will play the winner between No. 3 seed GlencoeSilver Lake (13-11) and No. 6 Sibley East (10-15) 7:45 p.m. this Friday at Prior Lake High School. The NYA/LS-H winner will square off on the same floor at 6 p.m. against either No. 4 Gibbon-Fairfax-Winthrop (18-7) or No. 5 Tri-City United (18-8). The subsection championship game is set for 7:45 p.m. next Tuesday at Minnesota
State University, Mankato. The winner of that game will play the champion of the South Subsection 8 p.m. March 10 for the right to go to the state Class 2A tournament. The top seed in the South Subsection is New Richland-Hartland-Ellendale-Geneva (21-5). The No. 2 seed is Blue Earth Area (13-12). Tigers 70, Breck 51 The Mustangs raced to a 9-6 lead early before the Tigers clawed back to a take a 15-9 advantage and lead the rest of the way en route to a 70-51 win last Tuesday night at Breck School. “They (Breck) had a couple of good players and once we figured them out, we defended them well,” said Tigers coach Randy Carlson. “Our pressure defense got to them and they made a lot of mistakes that we turned into points. “All in all, it was a good way to end the regular season on a positive note by winning three consecutive games,” Carlson continued. Belle Plaine’s Paige Narveson was 7 of 13 from three-point range on her way to scoring a game-high 28 points. Elizabeth Johnson contributed 16 points, while Jaylen Struck-Schmitz and Sara Lenz both had seven, followed by Lily Vinkemeier with six. Alexa Lenz, Lauren Johnson and Sidney Schafer each had two points. Johnson led the team in rebounds (7), assists (8) and steals (4).
“Elizabeth Johnson showed a lot of heart and stepped up in a leadership role early and set the tone for us,” Carlson said. “It was good to see Paige Narveson continue her improved play. We also did a good job of helping to get her open” 2016-17 BPHS Girls’ Basketball Results and Remaining Schedule Nov. 29 at WEM L 53-49 Dec. 1 at JWP W 64-52 Dec. 2 at C.
