City Reaches Agreement With Afton Administrator by Dan Ruud A process that started last August with the release of then Belle Plaine City Administrator David Murphy is apparently almost over. During a personnel committee meeting Monday night, the Belle Plaine City Council tentatively agreed to terms with Afton City Administrator Ron Moorse to become Belle Plaine’s new head person at city hall. Interim City Administrator Dawn Meyer said Tuesday that the city attorney is in the process of drawing up the employment contract for Moorse, which the council is expected to officially approve at next Monday night’s regular meeting. His anticipated start date is July 1. Moorse’s salary to begin will be step 4 ($86,392), with an increase to step 5 ($89,908) on Jan. 1. Murphy’s salary at the

They’re Here There is currently no traffic light control signal system in Belle Plaine but that’s about to change as workers from Granite Ledge Electrical Contractors are busy this week installing the system at the intersection of East Main Street/Highway 25 and Old Highway 169 Boulevard. With much of the underground work complete, the process of actually installing the poles and lights began Tuesday. The scheduled completion date for the project, which was initiated by the Minnesota Department of Transportation, is May 16. The traffic light control signal system is part of Mn/DOT’s overall plan for the interchange, which was constructed and opened several years ago. The agreement stated that when Mn/DOT determines a traffic light control signal system is deemed warranted, it will be installed. The city of Belle Plaine was not a proponent of the project. City Engineer Joe Duncan reported to the city council last week that flashing yellow arrows will be part of the signal system.

Filing Period for Mayor, Two City Council Seats Starts Next Tuesday The filing period for 2014 primaries and general elections across the state will open 8 a.m. next Tuesday and continue through 5 p.m. June 3. Belle Plaine Mayor Mike Pingalore said he will seek a second two-year term this fall. Pingalore defeated then incumbent

Tim Lies in the 2012 election. Also up for election this year are the seats of council members Paul Chard and Scott Schneider. Chard said he will seek reelection and Schneider said he is undecided. The mayoral seat is for two

This crop field just south of Highway 169 in Belle Plaine and many others like it in the area will require some warm, dry weather before it becomes workable again.

Corn Planting Makes Gains But Still Behind the Norm The United State Department of Agriculture (USDA) reports that Minnesota farmers were able to make moderate planting progress during the week ending May 11. More progress was made on sandier soils before planting was once again halted by rains late in the week. There were 2.5 days suitable for fieldwork. Widespread precipitation caused topsoil and subsoil moisture levels to rise to the point to nowhere in the state is soil moisture content below adequate. According to the Scott County rain gauge on the Ewald and Adella Gruetzmacher farm in Belle Plaine, rainfall amounts were .27 inches last Wednesday, 1.13 on Thursday, .16 on Saturday and .46 on Sunday.

The total amount of rain in May in Belle Plaine was 2.02 inches as of late Monday afternoon. Still, almost one-quarter of the state’s corn crop was planted last week, with southwestern Minnesota making the most progress. Thirty-one percent of the total corn crop has been planted, which is five days behind normal. Cool temperatures have delayed corn emergence. Soybean planting was 4 percent complete and 12 days behind normal. Spring wheat planting stands at 8 percent complete, 45 percentage points behind the five-year average. The forecast for the rest of this week in the Twin Cities area calls for a limited chance of precipitation and temperatures warming into the 60s this weekend.

years. The two council seats are both for four years. The primary election, if necessary, will be held on Tuesday, Aug. 12. The general election is Tuesday, Nov. 4. Filing offices will be closed Monday, May 26 in observance of Memorial Day. The place of filing for city offices is at Belle Plaine City Hall, 218 North Meridian Street downtown. The filing fee is $2. For more information, contact Belle Plaine City Hall at 8735553. A Race on for House There will be at least two candidates for the House District 20A seat. Belle Plaine City Council Member Cary Coop recently announced his candidacy for the job, which is currently held by Republican Kelby Woodard of Belle Plaine. Woodard, who has served two terms, announced last month that he is not seeking reelection this year. He is moving to Texas to become the founding president of a Catholic high school in Dallas. Coop said he plans to seek the endorsement of the Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party. Bob Vogel of Elko New Market and former Scott County Board commissioner has announced he will seek the Republican endorsement for Woodard’s seat. Doing the same is Le Sueur City Council Member Ben Rohloff. If Coop wins the House election, it would open up a third seat on the city council and someone would have to be appointed by the council to fill the remaining two years of his term. If Coop loses the election, he can fill the remaining two years of his term.

time of his departure was $98,485. He had b e e n B e l l e P l a i n e ’s city administrator for nearly 10 years. Before offering the job to Moorse, the city offered it to Waseca City Manager Crystal Prentice, who has held that position since 2008. She turned down Belle Plaine’s final offer and accepted a job in Arizona instead. Moorse served as interim city administrator in Afton from April 2010 to February 2011 and returned to the job in February 2012.

Before coming to Afton, Moorse served as city administrator in Arden Hills for two years, city administrator in Orono for 16 years and as assistant to the city manager in Roseville for 10 years. The city of Afton is located in Washington County about 15 miles east of downtown St. Paul, south of Interstate 94 along the St. Croix River. Its population is approximately 3,000. Afton is well known for Afton Alps, the largest ski and snowboard facility in the Twin Cities area. The most recent issues facing the city of Afton during Moorse’s reign have involved proposed multi-million dollar improvements to the community’s sewer system, flood levee and reconstruction of the St. Croix Trail.

Belle Plaine School Board OKs K-12 iPad Plan for 2014-‘15 Initiative Will Cost District $1.04 Million Over Four Years All of the Belle Plaine School District students will have the opportunity to use iPad minis beginning next fall. In a special meeting Monday night (May 12), the school board approved a proposal to provide all 1,600-plus students with the use of an iPad mini, a smaller version of an iPad, and 60 Chromebooks on carts. Directors unanimously approved providing the devices to junior and senior high-schoolers. They approved by a 4-2 vote expanding the program to kindergarten and elementary students. Directors Joe Vandermark and Mike Ludvik opposed the expansion to the elementary school students. “I’m comfortable doing something,” Ludvik said. Providing the devices to seventh- through

$200,000 from the undesignated fund balance currently at $1.8 million. The district will then look at other funding options for the second, third and fourth years, said Superintendent Kelly Smith. The board also approved the hiring of a technology integration specialist -- $60,000 annually for salary and benefits -- for next year. Vandermark is concerned the specialist might be overwhelmed trying to help 1,700-plus users (teachers and users alike). “That’s the (budgetary) dilemma,” Smith said. He expects the specialist will help teachers assist those who are struggling making good use of the devices. “I’d like to have three people in each building.” The district is also in discussions with the Jordan School District regarding the expansion of Carol Lagergren’s duties as a curriculum director. Belle Plaine and Jordan share Lagergren as a curriculum diUsing Fund Balance rector. The district is looking Along with $150,000 already at expanding her work from in the technology budget, the School Board board will fund the first year (continued on page 7) of the program with about

12th-graders will spread out the costs and discomfort implementing the new program. “I’m just not comfortable jumping all in at once.” Director Dan Giesen believes the elementary students will generally be highly enthusiastic users of the devices. “These are the kids who are living with this every day. “This is all they know.” Director Dan Gardner expects the junior and senior high students will push their instructors for new and better ways to use the devices to enhance education. The devices will cost about $1.04 million. That cost includes the anticipated $310,000 in upgrades to the district’s wireless Internet system. The district plans to lease them over four years with annual payments of $270,632. The district’s plan is for another $23,295 for new and recurring service contracts and annual repairs.

Almost 2,400 Pounds Collected Belle Plaine letter carriers delivered 2,386 pounds of food collected on their routes Saturday (May 10) as part of a national campaign to stamp out hunger. After completing their routes, they delivered the food area residents donated to the Belle Plaine Food Shelf where volunteers were ready to weigh and sort the incoming items. The group includes (clockwise, from left) Connie Bergs, Gloria Graham, Diane Kes, Carl Belz, Nark Schickedanz, Linda Fahey, Norbert Tieben, Warren Wolf, Heather Volmer, Tom Bartholomew, Joe Fahey, Elliana Fahey, Leo Fahey, Bruce Panning, Joe Engelhard, (not pictured) Anita Ernst, Leo Giesen, Julie Oldenberg, Cathy Creech and Diane Randolph.

Belle Plaine Senior High School students and staff crammed into the FFA classroom and shop area for a blood drive Wednesday (May 7). The drive was moved to the FFA area on short notice when staff realized the north gym in the junior-senior high school was double-booked. (Above) Senior Bryce Schmidt (foreground) chatted with her younger sister, Kala, across the room. The drive generated 54 pints of blood, 17 from first-time donors.

Former Henderson Independent owner, publisher and local point man for all things printed, Leonard â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lennyâ&#x20AC;? Blaschko passed away Sunday, May 4. Lenny broke into the world of newspapers and printing as a reporter for the Le Center Leader for 18 years. He became owner and publisher of the Independent in 1960, purchasing the newspaper and printing operation from Oscar Troldahl. He steered the Independent until 1994 when he and his wife Shirley announced their retirement and sold their interests to Paul and Sarah Malchow. For more than three decades, Lenny kept Henderson informed on the town happenings. Reflecting back, however, the 1965 flood posed his biggest challenge and story. Water covered over two-thirds of Henderson and the Independent office pulled double-duty as the newspaper headquarters and a makeshift Red Cross Disaster Center.

Hospice of the Twin Cities and Hospice of the Valley families will hold a hospice educational series at The Lutheran Home Chapel in Belle Plaine. It will take place Wednesday afternoons (eight sessions) from

NYA Teen Drowns On May 9, at approximately 7:30 p.m., Carver County Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office deputies responded to a report of a male swimming in Eagle Lake near the Baylor Park fishing pier in Camden Township. The caller reported the male went underwater and did not resurface. The victim, Davis Paul Colley, 16, from Norwood Young America, was deceased. His body was transported to the Midwest Medical Examinerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office for examination. The victim did not have signs of injury. The Carver County Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dive Team searched the area(s) where witnesses reported seeing the male, recovering the victimâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s body at approximately 11:06 p.m. The circumstances leading up to the victim being in the water remain under investigation. Preliminary information suggests the victim was not engaged in recreational swimming. Over the next few days, investigators will continue to contact and interview people who may have knowledge of the victimâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s activities leading up to the drowning.

press printing transitioned into offset printing and the gathering of the news became more technical, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was really something, it was a process,â&#x20AC;? said Lenny in regards to switching from letterpress printing to offset printing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I tell you, it was like going from a team of horses and a walking plow, to a tractor.â&#x20AC;?

Farmers Market Corner It was a wonderful kick off to the 2014 Belle Plaine Farmers Market. Eight vendors came and lots of shoppers. Hopefully, we can expect even more today (Wednesday). Gene had some beautiful strawberry and raspberry plants as well as scallions and sweet corn seed. Sonja brought great joy with fresh lettuce and radishes. She also had information about her CSA â&#x20AC;&#x153;a place at the table.â&#x20AC;? If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re interested, she would love to share with you. Today there promises to be even more new things. Asparagus has been turning up on the dinner table. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re just hoping those people are ready to share.

Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also news that you can find pear and apple wood at the market. Fruit woods are perfect for the grill and smoker to add flavor to your meat. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re still looking for more vendors. The first time is free and then itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just $10 a month with a season maximum of $50. Come on down, check us out and join the fun. The farmers market is held every Wednesday from 3:30-6:30 p.m. May through Oct. 15 at Court Square Park. Vendors are welcome! You can like us on Facebook for seasonal information and recipes. For more information, contact Lisa Fahey at 952-873-5665 or Diane Skelley, 952-873-2467.

Scott County Memorial Law Enforcement Banquet May 15 The annual Scott County Memorial Law Enforcement Banquet is Thursday, May 15 at the American Legion Post in Shakopee. The banquet is an opportunity to honor members of the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s law enforcement community who have passed away while in active service of law enforcement. It raises money for the county law enforcement scholarship. The departed include Luverne Realander, Scott County Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office; Terry McGovern, Shakopee Police Department; George Lill, County Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office; Jon

Niemann, Scott County Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office; Darrell Honza, Scott County Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office; Mary Hensel, Scott County Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office; and Mark Dominiak, Shakopee Police Department. An estimated 99.5 percent of the money raised is used for scholarships every year. Tickets to the banquet are $12.50 per person. Tickets can be purchased at the door. Social hour is at 5:30 p.m. and dinner at 6 p.m. The Shakopee American Legion Post is at 1266 First Ave. E.

Canterbury Park Begins 20th Season This Friday Horse racing returns to Minnesota Friday, May 16 when Canterbury Park begins its 20th season. The 69-day race meet will run until Sept. 13. Weeknight racing begins at 6:30 p.m. Racing on weekends and holidays will begin at 12:45 p.m., 45 minutes earlier than prior years, with the exception being the five Saturdays in August when racing begins at 6:30 p.m. The season opens with a three-day racing weekend. May 16 features the 10,000 Lakes Stakes and May 17 the Lady Slipper Stakes, both $60,000 sprint races, as well as a simulcast of the 139th Preakness Stakes, the second leg of the Triple Crown. Canterbury Parkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nearly 1,600 horse stalls will be at capacity again this season for only the second time since 1991 due to a cooperative marketing and purse enhancement agreement reached in 2012 with the Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community (SMSC), which owns and operates Mystic Lake Casino Hotel. SMSC will contribute $75 million to the horsemenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s purse structure over the dealâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 10-year span. This seasonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s purses are estimated to reach a record $13 million. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The future of racing in Minnesota is very bright,â&#x20AC;? Canterbury Park President Randy Sampson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Last season saw another increase in average attendance and on-track handle. Nationally, we became more prominent because of the increase in the quality of our racing, resulting in the money bet on Canterbury out of state increasing 46 percent.â&#x20AC;? Attendance averaged a record 6,656 in 2013. Combined han-

dle, the amount of money wagered on Canterbury races both on and off track, was $37.7 million, a 34 percent increase. The suburban Minneapolis racetrack originally opened in 1985 as Canterbury Downs but closed shortly after the 1992 season concluded. Sampson, his father Curtis, and businessman Dale Schenian purchased the track and surrounding property in 1994 and re-opened for simulcast racing in May of that year. With a new name, Canterbury Park, and a business plan that included year-round simulcasting and special events, live horse racing returned to the state in the summer of 1995. This year marks the 20th live racing season under the current ownership. Fridays feature Minnesotaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Biggest Happy Hour with live music on the Mystic Lake Music Stage and drink specials. Sundays are Pepsi Family Day with free pony rides, face painting and a petting zoo. The popular â&#x20AC;&#x153;Buck Nightâ&#x20AC;? promotion, which includes $1 general admission and beverage and food specials, will be offered when Thursday night racing begins June 5. Each of the five Saturdays in August will feature a different theme and a 6:30 p.m. post time. General admission to Canterbury Park is $6, with an additional charge for indoor, reserved seating. There are 10 designated Premium Days when general admission is $8. Children 17 and under are admitted free. General parking is free. For additional information, call the Canterbury Box Office at 952-445-7224 or visit www. canterburypark.com.

Woodard Reflects on His Time Served

Last week, I introduced you to the new web page for the Scott County Library System. A good number of our readers took a bit of time to look it over and I was pleased to hear that they liked what they saw. I want to spend a bit more time on this. I think it is going to be very useful for you. First of all, on whatever device you favor for internet access, go to URL:http://www.scottlib.org. Be sure to bookmark this URL to keep it handy. The first place that I want you to try is the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Library Locationsâ&#x20AC;? feature. Click on the drop-box and select a library. Almost instantly, you are rewarded with an address, telephone number, operating schedules and if you want, a map showing how to find us. You have to admit, that is a slick feature. On the Menu Bar above that, click on â&#x20AC;&#x153;Contact Usâ&#x20AC;?. There you will find more information on staying in touch with your library system. Back at the menu bar, take some time to hover with your mouse pointer over each menu item. You will see additional categories that you can search through. While we are talking about searching, the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Catalog & My Accountâ&#x20AC;? item on the menu bar takes you to a very handy search tool. As an example, I typed â&#x20AC;&#x153;Stephanie Plumâ&#x20AC;? into the Search text box and clicked on â&#x20AC;&#x153;Searchâ&#x20AC;?. Stephanie Plum is the main character in a series of novels that is among the most popular series in the library system. I had seven pages of CDs, DVDs, and books come back in the search. I did not search on a title or authors name, but rather a character in the story. In the old card catalog days, you would not have been able to do that. It is a powerful tool. Take some time to learn it, it will serve you well. The main reason that I want you to get familiar with this web page is a few short weeks away. We are hurtling toward the kick-off of another BookAWocky Summer Reading Program. You can see it announced on the new web page. We try our best to keep you informed of schedules and events in this column. However, space is limited. We often do not have room for details and occasionally, those details change. The web-page is a great way for you to maximize the benefits of the Summer Reading Program for your young readers. We are planning on making this another exciting summer. I have learned over the years that parents, grandparents, guardians and older siblings can greatly enhance the success level of young readers. We want to help you help them. One of the recurring rites of spring during my 20 years here at the Belle Plaine Library, has been that first bouquet of dandelions in spring. My husband handed me one on Sunday. It was a nice try, but he lost on the technicality of failing to deliver them to the library. I guess it is a sign of technological advancement and in the spirit of moving with the times, that the first bouquet delivered this year was a virtual delivery. John Stelten delivered a picture of dandelions via e-mail. Thanks for remembering us.

With a humble heart, I would like to thank you all for allowing me to serve as your state representative for the past four years. It has been an honor, a privilege, and an experience that my family and I will never forget. While I will miss serving you in St. Paul, I look forward to new opportunities and know that whoever replaces me will carry on a strong tradition of service on behalf of Rice, Scott and Le Sueur county residents. Since being elected in 2010, it has been my goal to fight for our common values in St. Paul. Serving as the GOP Lead on the House Education Finance Committee and as a father to five wonderful children, my top priority has been to ensure that every kid in Minnesota has access to a world class education. From advocating on behalf of strong graduation standards to pushing for flexible policies to keep the best teachers in our classrooms, I believe a strong education system is the key to

providing the kinds of opportunities that allow our kids to pursue their highest aspirations. Serving as an Assistant Minority Leader has also allowed me to influence and shape policies that puts Minnesota on a path of economic prosperity. I truly believe in a system where government does not burden its citizens with excessive taxation and overregulation. Your support and input has helped guide me in St. Paul as I considered legislation on a wide variety of topics. While many of you may have a strong distaste for politics, you were the folks who inspired me to work toward making our beloved state a place we can all be proud to call home.

The next step in my life will take me in a dramatically different direction than what I expected even a few months ago, but I look forward to dedicating myself and putting my words into action in a new way. I will be helping start a new Catholic high school that provides college preparatory classes for underprivileged children. This was a once in a lifetime opportunity that I simply could not pass up. As I reflect on my time at the Minnesota State Legislature, the current legislative session is winding down. We still have final negotiations on a few major bills that will be ironed out in the next several days. I am amazed at how fast the time went, but am so thankful to have had an opportunity to serve you. For your support, for your input and for your guidance, I am eternally grateful. I appreciate each and every one of you in District 20A. You are the reason I chose to serve and for thatâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;I thank you.

Dahle Addresses Education Policy Bill Minnesota is renowned across the nation for its public education system. This attention makes our Education Policy Bill one of the more prominent pieces of legislation every year. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bill takes great strides to improve education for all Minnesotans, and I am happy to have several of my provisions included in the larger bill. The Omnibus Bill passed from the Senate Floor with bipartisan support, and very recently passed through the Conference Committee. If a bill passes through both the House and the Senate but the two versions donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have identical language, it goes to a Conference Committee to reconcile those differences. I was a conferee for this bill and I appreciated the opportunity to work with my fellow elected officials to create an end product that will work best for our students. One portion of the bill which I have authored is an initiative spearheaded by First Lady Michelle Obama. This language adopts the interstate compact on education opportunity for Minnesotaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s military children. The change ensures that children in military families have a smoother transition when changing schools from state to state.

A n other section t h a t I authored m a y be the m o s t d i s cussed p o r tion of the bill. The language brings needed reforms to Minnesotaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Teacher Licensure Examinations. After almost two years of thoughtful discussion, I believe that we have an acceptable compromise which makes sure that good teachers arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t kept from the classroom by a test that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t measure the skills they truly need. This revision keeps the current skills tests, but allows candidates to show proficiency with ACT or SAT test scores. I also authored language related to special education case loads. In last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Omnibus Education Bill I called for a task force to find a solution to certain special education issues. The group came back with 29 recommendations, and this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Omnibus Education Bill allows the Commissioner of Education to take steps to implement them. I am happy

to see these proposals move forwardâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;easing the burden on our special education teachers. The bill also includes language that I carried related to career and technical education. The language implements recommendations of a task force focused on workforce development. It builds on the efforts of the Governorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Work Force Council, DEED, workforce centers and a broad range of career and technical initiatives throughout our education system. This bill expands student options and meets the needs of a 21st century workforce. There are many other aspects of this bill that I am happy to support. One section rewards students who learn a second language, while another provision provides a stronger framework for students whose first language is not English. Minnesota will be at the forefront of assisting students in an increasingly multilingual world. The Education Policy Omnibus Bill has great potential to improve the lives of thousands of Minnesota students and I am eager to see the many positive provisions in the bill becoming law. I look forward to hearing from constituents about this legislation and encourage you to reach out to me with any questions or concerns you may have.

Dear Editor, On Friday, April 25, approximately 100 Scott County area 8th and 9th grade students participated in the Future Leaders of Scott County event. This event draws civics and government students from throughout Scott County to the Government Center to experience an entire day with County officials and staff, from mentoring time to participation in a mock County Board meeting, a mock trial, or a day at the Scott County Association for Leadership and Efficiency (SCALE) Regional Training Facility in Jordan. To every Scott County employee who took time to plan the event or mentor a student â&#x20AC;&#x201C; great job! Staff from a variety of departments volunteered to spend time with students for the day, providing valuable insight into the variety of careers available at Scott County. We appreciate the time and thoughtfulness you exhibited by being a mentor; the event couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t happen without you! In addition to the mentors, local American Legions, Veterans of Foreign Wars, and VFW Auxiliaries were instrumental in the success of this event. From providing volunteers to assist with guiding the students throughout the day to financially funding the event â&#x20AC;&#x201C; complete with lunch and memorabilia â&#x20AC;&#x201C; these organizations were crucial to the success of the event! A number of businesses in the community also contributed to this educational and entertaining event for our students. Without the reduced prices for pizzas and cookies offered by Dominoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and Kwik Trip of Shakopee, our costs for this event would have been much higher. Throughout the day, students had an opportunity to gain valuable insight into County government and learn from hands-on experience about the day-to-day functions of local government. We couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have done it without community involvement and our Veterans â&#x20AC;&#x201C; please accept our gratitude! Sincerely, Tracy Cervenka Selina Kolsrud Co-Coordinators

Doreen Taylor was named valedictorian for the Belle Plaine High School class of 1984 after achieving a 9.877grade-point-average. Taylor, the daughter of Robert Taylor of Belle Plaine, planned to attend St. Cloud State University to major in business administration. Joining Taylor in graduating with high honors from BPHS were James Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Laughlin (salutatorian), Kirk Hardwick, Rodger Read, Sharon Jones, Susan Buszmann, Susan Siegler, Sandra Schmidt and Gary Boschee. Scott County Environmental Health Specialist Al Frechette arranged to have state and county officials visit the V & S Enterprises salvage yard in Belle Plaine to show them how it was polluting the Minnesota River. The problem, said Frechette, was debris from the salvage yard was carried down the river when it floods. The Minnesota DNR had identified the property as being a future acquisition that would become part of the Minnesota Valley Trail System. Frechette said he wanted the DNR to purchase the property sooner than later. The Belle Plaine Development Board reorganized that Wednesday evening and expressed a commitment to become more active and vigorously pursue industrial growth for Belle Plaine. The new board directors included John Ploetz, Ed Townsend, Bob Beck, Bill McCue, Bruce Edberg, Bill Chard, Pat Baynes, Ron Hennen, Paul Keup, Louis Lieske, Chuck Perkins, Bill Steffen, Dave Unmacht and Harold Edberg. The unemployment rates in both Scott and Carver counties dropped nearly one-half percent. The rate in Scott County went from 7.4 percent to 7 percent, which was a marked improvement over the previous yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 10.1 percent. In Carver County, the rate dropped from 6.6 to 6.2 percent, down from 9 percent at the same time in 1983. A total of 140 Belle Plaine area residents donated blood during that Mondayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s drive. Four people earned 5 gallon

Team Tigertown ended up on the losing end of a hardfought battle. Zac Dahlke ran his streak of starts against Class â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Bâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; teams to 34 and started on the hill for the Tigers. He gave up one run in four innings before a pulled tweener ended his night early.

Schultz retired all four batters he faced and inspired the troops so well that they loaded the bases in the top of the eighth. That brought up Schultz, who promptly grounded into an inning-ending double play. Rookies Jesse Oelfke and Matt Ruehling made their Tigertown debuts, with Oelfke getting his first hit for El Tigre.

Thanks to all of the students and advisors who were involved in the most recent Spring Pops Concert this past weekend. Great projects were on display from the Art and Industrial Tech departments as well as a plant sale sponsored by the Agricultural department and FFA. Our choir and band students put on a great show once again featuring movie and TV music from through the years. Thanks also go out to all of our small group and solo performers for such a great show. Congratulations go out to Jake Raddatz, Stephanie Rosario and Savannah Schatz for advancing from the Section Meet last week in Jordan to State Competition with their art pieces. Belle Plaine students had 18 pieces entered into the Section competition and came away with an impressive 17 Superior (the top rating earned) ratings and 1 Excellent rating. Freshmen Hannah Burmeister and Mattie Flaschenriem both earned superior ratings in 2D Mixed Media and Sheila Martin earned a superior in Crafts.

Congratulations to all of our 5th grade students as they celebrated their DARE Graduation this past week. The students have learned valuable lessons throughout the year about standing up to peer pressure and saying â&#x20AC;&#x153;Noâ&#x20AC;? to drugs. Officer Brian Vycital is the instructor and does a great job with our students each year. The celebration concluded with the annual 5K run that goes from Oak Crest Elementary to Chatfield Elementary and back to Oak Crest for the finish. It was great to see so many Chatfield students outside on a beautiful day cheering these 5th graders on! Thanks to all who worked to make this event a success! At our school board meeting last night, the school board gave approval to our Enhanced Learning Initiative for students in grades K-12. This program will provide an iPad mini to all students beginning next fall to assist in personalizing education for each and every child. I want to thank the school board for their financial commitment to this initiative and thank everyone who worked diligently to prepare information about this proposal. More information about this initiative will be coming in future communications. I am excited about the opportunities for enhanced learning that await our students in the fall! As always, if you have any questions about school matters, please feel free to call me at 873-2400 or check our website at www.belleplaine.k12.mn.us. You may also find me on Twitter at @BPTiger716.

Cologne Park Board’s Making Pitch City Splash 2x2 & 2x4for ads to run ONE TIME, the Pad week beginning 5/11/2014

A proposal to create a splash pad in one of the city’s two downtown parks has the Cologne City Council and park board looking for ways to fund the project for construction this summer or next. Nicole Evenski, a park board member and the wife of Councilor Kyle Evenski, presented the proposal at the council’s May 5 meeting. The park board, which meets quarterly, has been considering the proposal for some time as a way to create more interest in Cologne among current residents and people who may be considering Cologne as a place to call home, said City Administrator John Hendel. Councilors’ reaction to the proposal ranged from “intrigued to embraced,” Hendel said. The park board will begin firming up costs and looking for funding sources, work it did not want to begin without a warm reception of the proposal. The plan for a splash pad – a playground with water spraying about – includes no stand-

ing water. It would use water re-circulated through a tank and treated before being used again. With no standing water, the city would not need to hire lifeguards. The city would only need to check the water’s pH (acidity or alkaline) levels twice daily, she said. The proposal would cost as much as $120,000 with equipment and installation. The council is also looking for firm operational costs as well. Estimates range from $60 to $100 per month in electric costs. Timers could be installed to keep it from operating when nobody is present or during certain hours of the day or evening, Hendel said. The council and park board are interested in the project because the nearest similar facilities are in Chaska or Eden Prairie. Fully aware of the cost to build and operate a community pool, the council sees a splash pad as affordable and a potential boon to downtown Cologne. “I think it would bring a lot of people into town,” said Coun-

cilor Scott Williams said. But funding for a proposed splash pad is not in the city’s 2014 budget and the city has spent money on the roof of the public works building and the lights at Fritz Field. Williams and the rest of the council encouraged the board to look to other sources for funding that would complement city dollars. The city could also recruit tradesmen to donate their skills to helping to build the facility. “There’s enough electricians that we know,” Hendel said. The parks-trail fund has $299,000 in it, money that is intended in park improvement projects. But the city has other parks plans at other facilities in the city, including possible restrooms at Marion Fields. The splash pad could be funded through a lease-option with a $1 buyout at the end of the lease, Hendel said. Mayor Matt Lein said the city council is interested in the proposal but is not yet ready to commit to it. The council will likely receive an update on the proposal next month.

Tigers Close in on MRC Title

by Dan Ruud The Belle Plaine High School baseball team is on the verge of claiming the 2014 Minnesota River Conference pennant following two more victories without a defeat this past week. The Tigers knocked off Norwood Young America and Le SueurHenderson, both by six runs. The only thing that may have prevented Belle Plaine, 10-0 in the MRC, 12-2 overall, from clinching the title before this edition of the Herald went to press was the weather postponement of Monday’s doubleheader at Sibley East, which will be played this Saturday starting at 10 a.m. Belle Plaine was scheduled to host Holy Family Catholic in a nonconference game Tuesday night after this edition of the Herald went to press. The Tigers will resume MRC play at Tri-City United 7 p.m. this Thursday and will host Le Sueur-Henderson 4 p.m. next Monday. Tigers 7, NYA 1 The Tigers scored three runs in the top of the first inning and that would be more than enough to top Norwood Young America 7-1 in a MRC game Friday at NYA. Aaron Bigaouette led off the game with a walk, which was followed by a Ben Wagner single. Derek Dahlke then crushed a three-run homer. Norwood answered with a solo home run in the bottom of the first but that was all they would get off Dahlke, who pitched the first six innings, allowing one run on three hits. He had seven strikeouts. Joe Hankins pitched the final inning and recorded three strikeouts. The Tigers added three more runs in the fourth inning, which included singles by Cameron

Lark, Hankins and Bigaouette. Dahlke then singled to score two runs, bringing his RBI total for the game to five. Aiden Ladd also singled in a run. Belle Plaine finished with 12 hits, compared to three for NYA. Dahlke finished up with three hits, as did Ladd. Wagner had two hits and scored three runs. Getting one hit apiece were Bigaouette, Lark, Hankins and Chase Emmers. “This was a very well played game and we really came ready to play,” said Tigers coach Pat Schultz. “Dahlke had a great game for us on the mound and at the plate, but the whole team contributed with great at-bats all night and excellent defense. “Bigaouette had another great game at shortstop and Colton Hentges did a very nice job battling the wind in right field and making it look easy,” Schultz continued. Tigers 9, LS-H 3 For a second straight Saturday, the Tigers woke up early to play and win a game. This time, they headed to Le Sueur-Henderson for a 10 a.m. start and by early afternoon were back in Belle Plaine with their 10th MRC victory in a row. Back-to-back doubles by Bigaouette and Wagner gave the Tigers a 1-0 lead in the first inning before a six-run explosion in the third made it 7-0 as Belle Plaine held on for a 9-3 victory. Emmers tossed three innings of no-hit ball before giving way to what would be four relievers to finish the game. “He (Emmers) looked great on the mound to start the game but the bullpen finished off to allow us to have everyone ready to go for three big games Monday and Tuesday before section seeding on Wednesday,”

said Schultz prior to the Sibley East doubleheader postponement. “The boys really came ready to play Friday evening and Saturday morning. Solid pitching and smart, aggressive at-bats early really set the tone for each game. Our entire team contributed to the victories and it is fun to see the great attitudes of the players each game and practice.” Pitching one inning apiece following Emmers’ three innings were Bigaouette, Ladd, Hankins and Ryan Bremseth. Combined, they allowed just three hits. Offensive leaders for the Tigers were Wagner (two doubles, one RBI and a run scored); Bigaouette (a single, double and two runs scored); Emmers (two hits, two RBI, a run scored and a stolen base); and Ladd (two hits and one RBI). Dahlke, Dylan O’Brien, Colton Hentges and Lark all had a double, while Hankins added a single. 2014 BPHS Baseball Results and Remaining Schedule Apr. 8 vs. St. Peter W 10-6 Apr. 10 vs. NYA W 8-4 Apr. 12 Belle Plaine Tourney vs. Paynesvi W 10-9 vs. Minnehaha L 3-2 Apr. 15 vs. W-M W 10-0 Apr. 21 vs. TCU W 2-1 Apr. 22 at New Ulm L 7-2 Apr. 25 vs. Mayer L.

Huber-Led Augustana Baseball Team Advances to NCAA Regionals The Augustana College baseball team, coached by Belle Plaine native Tim Huber, earned the sixth seed in the NCAA Central Region Tournament and will play the No. 1 seed and tournament host Arkansas Tech University. Augustana is making its second NCAA Baseball Tournament appearance in school history, both under Huber. The Vikings last qualified for the national tournament in 2011.

The tournament will be played May 15-18 on the campus of Arkansas Tech University in Russellville, Ark. Augustana earned an automatic bid to the Central Region Tournament by winning the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference Tournament Championship on Saturday. The Vikings defeated Winona State in the championship game, going 4-0 in the tournament, to claim its first tournament title since

joining the league in 2009. For the second straight season, Augustana baseball set a program record for wins in a season and will carry a 40-14 record into the national tournament. Arkansas Tech is 42-10 on the season. Southern Arkansas earned the No. 2 seed, followed by Minnesota State University, Mankato at No. 3, Emporia State at No. 4 and ArkansasMonticello at No. 5.

Town Team Baseball

Belle Plaine Falls to Elko, Prior Lake by Brett Kruschke, Matt Schultz and Mike Schultz The Belle Plaine town baseball Tigers dropped a pair of games last weekend and is off to a 1-3 start for the second consecutive season. Last year got as ugly as 1-6 but eventually led to a second-place finish at state, so let’s hope the Tigers go 0-for-3 this weekend in Freeport! (Just kidding.) With a 6-2 loss to Elko and an 8-4 setback against the Prior Lake Jays in the rearview mirror, the Tigers are indeed off to the Black Sox Tourney in Freeport this weekend. BP will have a doubleheader on Saturday with games at 10:30 a.m. against Beaudreau’s Bar (formerly the St. Cloud Snappers) and 12:45 p.m. against the North St. Paul Roosters. With the six-team tournament providing a three-game guarantee, the Tigers will play in one of the following games Sunday: 5th place (11 a.m.), third place (1:15 p.m.) or the championship (3:30 p.m.). Follow @bptigertown on Twitter for updates.

With the Tigers easing into the May schedule as players and bodies round into shape, that will be the team’s only action for the week. The next contest will be Friday, May 23 when Arlington visits Tiger Park. Do you like to hit the links? Team Tigertown needs you. Join the Tiger Open Golf Tourney fund-raiser on Saturday, May 31 at Valley View Golf Club. We are also seeking businesses to sponsor a hole for $100 each.

Elko 6, Tigers 2 The Elko Express chugged into town to take on the local nine. The Tigers were looking to avenge getting steamrolled by the Shakopee Indians last week, and this was the first chance to do so. Things looked good early as Jake Fiedler threw a 1-2-3 first and then came up with a big two-run double in the bottom

Things will become more difficult again when Belle Plaine closes the regular season with a doubleheader at second-place Jordan this Thursday. Brackets for the section tournament will be released later this week. Watertown-M 7, Tigers 4 The Royals overcame a an early deficit with a three-run frame in the bottom of the first inning en route to a 7-4 victory last Tuesday in Watertown. “We came out and scored in the first inning but struggled again keeping them off the board,” said Belle Plaine coach Jeremy Kalal. “We’ve been talking about not giving runs back right after we score, and tonight we just didn’t close out innings. It’s very frustrating. We feel we are a better team than Watertown, but we just haven’t been able to put a complete game together and show that we are better.” Watertown-Mayer blew the game open with three runs in the fifth inning before Belle Plaine came back with a pair in the sixth. Maddie Haller pitched the first five innings for the Tigers and absorbed the loss after surrendering seven runs (four earned) on seven hits and three walks. Maddie Studnicka pitched a scoreless sixth inning. Accounting for Belle Plaine’s only five hits were Studnicka, Elizabeth Johnson, Kaylee Hentges, Maddi Lark and Hailey Witt. LS-H 6, Tigers 2 Le Sueur-Henderson ace pitcher Carlie Brandt pretty much handcuffed the Tigers on her way to a complete-game four-hitter last Wednesday at LS-H. “Coming into a big week like this we knew it wasn’t going to be easy, especially facing the best pitcher in the conference. I think we did a better job this time around putting the ball in play a little more often, but we couldn’t get hits to string together and mount any real kind of threat,” Kalal said. “I think we made some strides in the right direction, but against a pitcher like Brandt, you just have to be perfect to have a chance to win and we weren’t perfect.” Le Sueur scored twice in the first inning and added another in the second to grab a 3-0 advantage. The Tigers scored a run in both the fourth and fifth innings but the Giants countered in the bottom frame both times. Belle Plaine had just four hits (Johnson, Hentges, Shields and Studnicka), the latter of whom was the losing pitcher after giving up six runs (five earned) on eight hits and five walks. Hentges pitched a scoreless sixth inning that included two strikeouts. Tigers 5, NYA 2 The Tigers may wish they could play on Saturdays more often as they improved to 3-0

on that day with by far their biggest win of the year to date, a 5-2 upset of visiting Norwood Young America, which came into the game undefeated and ranked No. 2 in the state in Class 2A. “With the way we’ve been playing, I doubt many people gave us a chance in this game,” Kalal said. “It was huge for us to shut them down in the first inning, and when we came out and scored four in the bottom of the first, it gave us a huge

Tigers Take Second at True Team by Dan Ruud The Belle Plaine High School boys’ and girls’ track and field teams both just missed out on advancing to this week’s state true team meet in Stillwater by placing close seconds at last Tuesday’s Section 2AA True Team Meet in Faribault. Thursday’s meet at Glencoe was cancelled due to thunderstorms. The Tigers will host the Minnesota River Conference Outdoor Championships this Thursday. Events are scheduled to begin at 3:30 p.m. at the Belle Plaine Athletic Complex. The Belle Plaine girls will be seeking their 10th consecutive MRC championship and the boys will be after their third in a row.

Girls’ Results

(386.5), Tri-City United (381), St. Peter (380), Faribault (365), Jordan (302) and Worthington (183). Jenna Gatz and Amara Meyer were Belle Plaine’s top pointgetters. Gatz won the 100-meter dash (12.77), was second in the 400 dash (1:01.91) and 200 dash (26.58), and was fifth in the long jump (15-07.25). Meyer was tops in the high jump (5-2), and third in the 100 hurdles (16.44) and 300 hurdles (49.38). Junior Janessa Meuleners won the 3,200 run (12:00.88) and was fourth in the 1,600 (5:31.56). Other top finishers for the Tigers were Bridget Egan second in the pole vault (9-6) and Haley Leger third in the 800 run (2:30.92), The difference between winning the meet and finishing second for Belle Plaine was in the relays, where it finished a disappointing eighth in the 4x800, last by disqualification in the 4x200, and sixth in both the 4x100 and 4x400.

at Faribault May 6 The only team the Belle Plaine girls have not been able to finish ahead of this season is Mankato East. After being nipped by the Cougars at the Mankato East Relays the week before, the Tigers again placed second by a slim margin at last Tuesday’s section true team meet, sending Mankato East to the state true at Faribault May 6 team meet.

enough to send them to Stillwater this week. Like in the girls’ meet, Mankato East emerged as the champion with a team score of 468.5. Belle Plaine and Waseca tied for second with 445 points apiece. The rest of the field consisted of Fairmont (411.5), Jordan (390), Worthington (375.5), Tri-City United (360), Faribault (310), New Ulm (216) and St. Peter (163.5).

Tigers Snap Out of Bad Spell by Dan Ruud It was a rough last Tuesday and Wednesday for the Belle Plaine High School softball team, but the Tigers did manage to find a diamond on Saturday – a 5-2 victory over state-ranked and previously unbeaten Norwood Young America. Belle Plaine’s good fortune continued on Monday as it gained its second Minnesota River Conference victory in three days by a 17-5 count over the Titans. The Tigers, 4-5 in the MRC, 7-5 overall, have a good chance to add to their winning streak this week. They were scheduled to travel to winless Sibley East for a doubleheader Tuesday after this edition of the Herald went to press. Up next is a game today (Wednesday) at

May 6 at Winthrop Jordan widened its lead in the MRC standings as it captured last Tuesday’s conference get-together at Winthrop Golf Course. The Jaguars, led by individual medalist and MRC individual standings leader Trianna Thong, posted a team score of 206, followed by Watertown-Mayer (225), Belle Plaine (233), Le Sueur-Henderson (237), NorBelle Plaine’s Emily Vinkemeier, center, competed in the 100-meter hurdles at last Tuesday’s wood Young America (239), section true team meet in Faribault.

Johnson is currently third in the overall MRC individual standings, trailing only Thong and Watertown-Mayer’s Hallie Harding. May 7 at Glencoe Last Wednesday’s 18-hole meet at Glencoe was a twoteam affair won by Jordan over Belle Plaine (406-446). The rest of the field, including NYA, Sibley East and Howard Lake-Waverly-Winsted, fielded incomplete teams. Jordan’s Thong was the only

player to avoid a triple-digit score as she fired an 88.

ConAgra Selling Mill in New Prague ConAgra Mills is selling its facility in New Prague and two others to Miller Milling, a locally based subsidiary of Nisshin Flour Milling Inc. of Tokyo, Japan. The mill in New Prague is the largest of four mills Miller Milling is acquiring. The New Prague mill has a capacity of 18,000 cwts (hundredweights). Miller Milling processes spring wheat, hard wheat and malt barley used for bakery flour, whole-wheat flour and malt barley flour. The flour is pack-

aged in 25-, 50- and 100-pound bags, the New Prague Times recently reported. After the purchase is completed, the New Prague mill will be the second largest in Miller Millingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inventory, only smaller than its plant in Winchester, Va. Forty-nine employees work at the New Prague plant. The company told city officials it plans to retain the staff. Future growth of the plant is also a potential if warranted.
