City Council Votes 3-2 to Accept Pasek’s Resignation and Separation Agreement by Dan Ruud At the end of its final regular meeting of the year, the Belle Plaine City Council Monday night voted 3-2 to accept the resignation of police officer Bryan Pasek and the subsequent separation agreement package between the city and the union that was presented by City Administrator David Murphy. Highlights of the agreement include a lump sum severance payment of $15,027.72, which is equivalent to three months pay, as well as a lump sum pay-

ment of $6,581.69 that represents 227.74 hours of accrued paid personal time. The agreement also states that Pasek will continue to receive health insurance benefits through the end of February 2013. Pasek’s resignation will take effect Dec. 21. Voting against the separation agreement were council members Gary Trost and Paul Chard, both of whom wanted one month of the three-month severance package subtracted

from the agreement due to Pasek having been on “paid” administrative leave the past month. Mayor Tim Lies and council members Cary Coop and Scott Schneider voted in favor of the agreement. Mike Pingalore was absent. Pasek, who has been a member of the Belle Plaine Police Department since 2002, was arrested for his second DWI on Nov. 20. His first occurred

B.P. Residents Plagued by Credit/Debit Card Fraud

Santa Claus Returns to Town

Investigation Checking Work of Hackers, Skimmers

Santa was visited by a number of children at the Belle Plaine Public Library Saturday afternoon, his second of two visits there this holiday season. Among those visitors were top photo, from left, siblings Khang, Long and Nhi Nguyen of Belle Plaine. Pictured at the right having a stare down with Santa is Jeffrey Teal of Belle Plaine. Mrs Claus was also there, as was one of Santa’s helpers taking souvenir photos for visitors to take home.

Michael Schoenbauer and his family were shopping for Christmas tree last week. He was stoned to learn someone in Texas illegally used the debit card he planned to use to pay for a tree. “There was $600 worth of charges on it from a Walmart in Texas,” Schoenbauer said. He used cash to pay for the tree but is worried about the ability to use his debit and credit cards for Christmas shopping. Schoenbauer isn’t alone. Dozens of Belle Plaine residents, and several from outside the

community, have reported attempted or successful illegal use of their credit and debit cards in the past week. This week’s police report required an additional eight pages from its typical size because of the 40 reports police received of fraudulent use of credit/debit cards in Dubai, Italy, Mexico, Hong Kong, Ohio and Florida. Police are looking into the reports. They are checking whether a hacker compromised the credit/debit card services used by merchants in Belle Plaine. To determine if the fraudulent uses of credit/debit cards is truly the work of a hacker, police must find a commonality between the fraudulent charges, the credit/debit service company and the merchant. While the FBI is not involved in the investigation, the chief

said the volume of incidents will likely be reviewed by a state task force that handles financial crimes. He’s not aware of any other individual community experiencing the concentration of fraud reports as Belle Plaine has seen in the past few weeks. Police are also concerned some or all of the fraudulent charges could be the work of a skimmer, a devise that can read credit/debit card information and spend money in the accounts without the cardholder’s knowledge or permission. Stolee encourages people to use their credit/debit cards inside businesses and not at an exterior point-of-sale. The outbreak of fraudulent

Schools in Belle Plaine Reviewing Safety Plans Response to Connecticut Tragedy

The news from Newtown, Conn. Friday and over the weekend prompted Belle Plaine school officials to review build-

ing security plans after a shooter murdered 20 students and six adults before he eventually took his own life. Friday afternoon, Belle Plaine Schools Superintendent Kelly Smith sent a pre-recorded message to parents through the school district’s automated notification system. He assured

them school safety is a paramount concern and that district staff is available to help any student struggling with the effects of the shootings at the elementary school in Connecticut. “Our thoughts and prayers are

Happier Holidays at the Pumps

There’s some good economic news this holiday season. The price of regular unleaded gasoline last week and this week (as of Tuesday) was under $3 a gallon after having challenged the $4 mark earlier this year. This photo was taken at the pumps at Coborn’s in Belle Plaine. The Cenex and Kwik Trip stations were also at $2.99 a gallon. Some of the lowest gas prices in the state to begin this week were found in Shakopee, where several SuperAmerica and Holiday stations had prices near $2.80 per gallon. Economists say several circumstances are behind the recent gasoline price drops, including the end of the summer/fall driving season, which reduces demand for gasoline. Crude oil prices had been falling as well. However, economists warn that you shouldn’t get used to these prices as the cost of crude oil may be rising again on reports that China’s manufacturing sector is gaining strength, which could increase demand and prices.

He stands like a conductor at the curb in front of his parents’ house. With an iPod in hand, Mitch Kuhnke points to each set of lights as if ordering them to turn on and off on cue during a demonstration of the light show he created. The light show is computercontrolled. Strands of Christmas lights and 10 floodlights, after all, don’t listen to a 20year-old. Kuhnke knows when each set of lights is to turn on and off because he spent hours at a computer keyboard, meticulously orchestrating the light show. He has the ability to listen to a song, identify individual instruments and notes, and choreograph a strand of lights or floodlights to the melody of the song.

Where: 705 Butler Drive When: Daily though Jan. 1, 5-10 p.m. (Friday’s show includes bonus ninth song) How: Tune radio to 89.10 FM and drive by slowly. The show lasts just under 30 minutes Cost: Best of all, it’s free Can’t Get There: Visit You Tune (Awesomehouselights) “He did all the work. It’s his way of giving something back,”

said Jackie Kuhnke, Mitch’s mother. The split-level house at 705 Butler Drive – just off South Ash Street near Heritage Park – looks like any other house through the course of any given day. But from Nov. 26 through Jan. 1, from 5 to 10 p.m., it comes to life. Passers-by interested in the free show should turn the car radio to 89.10 on the FM dial.

Belle Plaine School Board Narrowly OKs 2013 Levy

With only a minuscule increase in its property tax levy, the Belle Plaine School Board narrowly approved a property tax increase for 2013 Monday evening. By a 4-2 margin, the board approved the .44 percent increase. The district’s Finance Director Chuck Keller said the increase in the levy would have at worst triggered minimal increases in the school district’s share of property tax bills on most residential property, thanks to a decrease in the taxable value of all property within the Belle Plaine School District. Director Mike Ludwig said he was philosophically opposed to the levy increase because a big portion of it -- $169,333 of the $177,964 increase in the $4.49 million operating levy -- is ded-

icated to paying for post-employment health care, a portion of the district’s negotiated contract with the Belle Plaine Education Association (the union representing its 116 teachers). The beneďŹ t affects 10-12 existing teachers hired before 1989. The amount dedicated to OPEB (other post-employment beneďŹ ts) is expected to reduce over time. Ludwig said he was philosophically opposed to using the levy to pay for the OPEB beneďŹ t. Previously, the beneďŹ t was funded directly from the general fund. Director Mike Daly also voted against the .44 percent increase but did not explain his opposition. He had not raised objection to including the beneďŹ t or the increase during public board meetings.

St. Francis Health Services, Pharmacy Coming to Jordan

Next spring, the Jordan and Belle Plaine area residents will have another option for clinic care when the Jordan clinic opens in the multi-use libraryhousing facility on Seville Drive, just southeast of the intersection of highways 169 and 282. A partnership between Scott County, Allina Medical Clinic and Shakopee-based St. Francis

Regional Medical Center, the new Jordan clinic will be part of the facility that includes senior housing operated by Scott County. The clinic will provide primary care, diagnostics and lab capabilities, according to St. Francis Regional Medical Center. Complementing the new clinic will be Keaveny Drug. Last week, Scott County Adminis-

trator Gary Shelton announced Keaveny and the county have agreed to a 10-year lease. Shelton said Keaveny Drug is known for its presence as an independent pharmacy in smaller communities. The Scott County Community Development Agency (CDA) will approve the lease at an upcoming meeting.

Begin Thinking Spring This Holiday Season by Travis Gerjets, Scott/ Carver County Master Gardener Pat yourself on the back for a ďŹ ne 2012 gardening season. Light a ďŹ re and put your feet up. Have a glass of wine. You are deserving of some rest and relaxation this holiday season! But don’t get too comfortable – spring will be here soon enough, and there is no better way to start a new growing season than by starting seeds indoors. During normal Minnesota winters, our days are dark and dreary and oh-so-cold. Nothing brings life and light (literally) to these days like new shoots of green emerging from a growing tray. And once you have started seeds indoors, you are hooked. If you have never tried starting your own seeds, this might be your season to try, and it is not as difďŹ cult as you might think. First, get your seeds. There

is no substitute for high-quality seeds and no thrill quite like looking at seed catalogs in January. Next, consider your growing station. You will need clean seedling trays with individual spots for each seed, a seedling tray cover, a bag of soil-less potting mix and a orescent light ďŹ xture with white or “grow lightâ€? light bulbs. To prepare your growing station, add the soil-less potting mix to each spot. Moisten the “soilâ€? before planting seeds. Position the light over your seedling tray. Now it is time to plant your seeds... or is it? Check the information on your seed packets for the number of days it takes the plant to reach maturity. Depending on the plant and the desired harvest time, work backwards with those numbers and plant your seeds at the appropriate time.

After planting, keep soil moist (but not wet!) and position your light two-inches away from soil surface. Cover the trays for the ďŹ rst two weeks or until the seedlings begin to push against the cover. Remove cover and raise the light as needed, always keeping the bulbs twothree inches away from the seedlings. Depending on your planting date and the growth of the plant, you may need to transport your seedlings to a larger pot at some point. Finally, when spring has sprung and your plants are ready to move to the garden, remember to “harden them offâ€? (acclimate them to the outdoor environment) before transplanting to your garden. For more information on seed starting, visit the University of Minnesota’s Extension website at: http://www.extension.umn. edu. Search “Starting Seeds Indoors.â€?

Green Isle Community School Presents Holiday Musical The students and staff at Green Isle Community School will present a holiday musical – “40 Winks ‘til Christmas� – Thursday, Dec. 20, 7 p.m. The presentation involves a group of children enjoying a holiday sleep over Grab your

pj’s and pillows - the cousins are coming for a holiday sleep over. When sleepiness begins to take over, the toys decide it’s time to liven things up. The merriment includes dancing dolls, disco bears, marching soldiers, somersaulting rag dolls, and a spe-

cial visit from the jolly red fellow himself. They discover it’s never too late to start spreading peace and goodwill. The program will be presented in the charter school’s gymnasium.

B.P.’s Smith a Finalist for Spot on U of M Board of Regents Belle Plaine School District Superintendent Kelly Smith is once again a ďŹ nalist for one of four vacancies on the University of Minnesota Board of Regents. Smith is one of 14 candidates for four vacancies on the Board of Regents. He was selected as a ďŹ nalist at the Regent Candidate Advisory Council (RCAC) meeting Dec. 7. The RCAC announced the vacancies in September. Smith was one of 32 applicants. Four of the 12 seats on Board of Regents are open for appointment every two years, each representing a six-year term. Regents are not ďŹ nancially compensated for their work. In the current biennium, the four seats to be ďŹ lled are one student-at-large position, two at-large positions, and one seat representing Minnesota’s Fifth Congressional District position. The RCAC is a 24-member advisory council established by the Minnesota State Legislature to recruit, screen, and recommend regent candidates for election by the legislature. The interviews in this round will be held Jan. 8-10, 2013 and are open to the public. The RCAC must recommend to a Joint Legislative Committee between two and four individuals for each open position on the board. The joint committee selects one candidate for each open position, and submits this slate of candidates for consideration by the full legislature sitting in joint convention. Smith said he hopes to advance to the interview process with the joint committee.

Under the Minnesota Constitution, the joint convention elects Regents to the board.

Tough Competition

Smith is seeking one of two atlarge appointments. He is competing against Linda Cohen, chairman of the board; Dean Johnson, a board member and former state lawmaker from Willmar; and author and former Hibbing Tribune Editor Al Zdon. Cohen and Johnson are both ďŹ nishing their ďŹ rst terms on the Board Regents. “I’m not holding my breath, but it’s an honor to be consid-

4QFDJBM

ered,� Smith said. Smith last sought a seat on the U of M Board of Regents representing Minnesota’s Second Congressional District during an abbreviated process when Regent Steve Sviggum resigned. Thomas Devine was appointed over Smith and former Scott County Commissioner Bob Vogel. Smith initially applied for a seat on the board in 2010, but passed over for Sviggum, former speaker of the Minnesota House of Representatives. Smith is a 1981 graduate of the U of Minnesota-Morris. He earned his doctorate at the University of Minnesota’s campus in Minneapolis. “I’ve always had a strong interest in the University of Minnesota,� Smith said. He grew up in southwest Minnesota and participated in 4-H, a program run through the U of M Extension Service. “I think it’s just a great part of what makes Minnesota special.� Because the board of regents is a part-time commitment, Smith would retain his job as superintendent of Belle Plaine Schools. He is seeking the position with the blessing of the school board.

Thirty Years Ago This Week

Minneapolis Star was this nice plug for Belle Plaine: â&#x20AC;&#x153;If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re out for a casual drive soon, stop on Highway 169, just at the outskirts of Belle Plaine, for a look at the Christmas crib scene erected there. The figures are life-size and the lighting and the background is indeed exciting.â&#x20AC;?

90 Years Ago (1922)

Hot Air and Snow That was Santa way up there in the Emma Krumbeeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hot air balloon during the restaurantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Santa Breakfast in 1982. Santa and some children were given rides despite the snowfall that day. The unseasonably warm weather was providing good driving conditions around the area, but had left brown grass and slushy ice for those new sleds and ice skates that would be delivered for Christmas. The forecast called for some hazardous driving just in time for a Christmas trip to Grandmaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, however. Freezing drizzle was being predicted for Thursday and on Christmas Eve day on Friday. For Jennifer Meyer, 8-year-old daughter of Bill and Marilee Meyer of Belle Plaine, Christmas of 1982 meant presents and a turkey dinner, but also a trip to the Belle Plaine Clinic to receive the fifth shot in a series of seven for the prevention of rabies. Jennifer was bitten the previous Tuesday by a dog running loose across her home near Westerman Lumber. The dog was not found, so Jennifer had to start the series of shots on Saturday. Archbishop John R. Roach announced that Pope Paul II had conferred upon Rev. Patrick J. Hessian the Pontifical Honor of Prelate of Honor with the title of Monsignor. Father Hessian was a major general in the U.S. Army and its chief of chaplains. Father Hessian, the son of Mr. and Mrs. Emmett Hessian, was a native of Belle Plaine. The Scott County Board that Tuesday approved the possible placement of a horse racing facility at a yet to be determined site in Scott County. The commissioners did not endorse a specific city for a facility, although the Shakopee Chamber of Commerce requested the endorsement and was hoping to have the track located close to that city. Commissioner Bill Koniarski of Belle Plaine said he had heard from some Belle Plaine officials that there was interest in having the racing facility here. Horse racing was made legal in Minnesota after voters gave approval to a parimutuel betting amendment on the Nov. 2 ballot. The Belle Plaine High School basketball team notched its fifth

victory in six games by nipping Le Sueur 55-52. The win put the Tigers alone in second place one game behind undefeated Montgomery in the conference standings. Two free throws by Kevin Wolpern and one by Jeff Miller in the final 14 seconds enabled the Tigers to turn a 5252 tie into a three-point victory. Wolpern, a junior forward, led the team in both scoring and rebounding with 18 points and 17 rebounds. The Tiger wrestling team improved its dual record to 5-2 with a 31-19 victory over Le Sueur. Brian Clymer, Ed Fogarty and Dennis Lehman recorded pins for Belle Plaine. Also that week, Fogarty won an individual championship in the Tigersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; fourth-place finish at a tournament in Morristown.

60 Years Ago (1952)

It was a White Christmas but not a very cold one. A light fall of snow gave all the landscape a beautiful, clean, white covering. The first election in the reorganized school district was held and resulted in the election of two members from inside the borough, four from outside. For the short term, L.E. Lieske and Edwin Stier were elected, and for the two-year term it would be Arthur Laabs and U.D. Hessian, and for the three-year term Jay Bailey and W.J. Gatz. The Boy Scouts had a very enjoyable camping trip near Stillwater. Those who went were leaders Norman Rone and George Hoelz, and scouts Lawrence Albrecht, Larry Hartman, George Hoelz, Roger Hoelz, Douglas Hottinger, Jimmie Bailey, Mike Spellacy and Bob Druke. Postmaster McRaith and staff stated that year had been one of the biggest Christmas card seasons the local office had ever known. Based on the number of stamps sold, â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 3 centers and 2 centers â&#x20AC;&#x201C; they estimated that there were between 90,000 and 100,000 greeting cards mailed out of the local office.

Lieut. Jack Newell from the air base at Bartow, Fla., and seamen Bob Newell and Glenn Oster from Jacksonville, Fla., arrived home for the holidays. Jack Newell was accompanied by Lieut. Leonard Lathan of England. Louis Zeman, 57, who was county engineer for Carver County for many years, died of a heart attack while in his sleep. Donald Schommer, 23, son of Mr. and Mrs. Nick Schommer of Belle Plaine Township, was in the Veterans hospital for treatment of a fractured leg in an automobile mishap. With him was young Woerdehoff of Jordan, who was more severely injured with several dislocated vertebrae. The fire alarm was sounded when a gas stove at Ted Gannonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s house started acting up. Tedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s neighbor, Walter Fahey, was quickly there and had the blaze under control before the arrival of the firemen. Sheriff Lester W. Melchert of Carver County took one look at a wrecked automobile and the three passengers in it and told them they had just lived through a miracle. The car smashed into the side of a Milwaukee train on the outskirts of Chanhassen. The train caught the car, twirled it around, carried it about 200 feet and threw it into a ditch. The three passengers, all from Minneapolis, crawled out of the wreckage without a scratch. The popular local calender that season was the made-toorder production put out by F.J. Keup. It featured a 7 by 9 picture of Belle Plaineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s championship baseball team of 1952. The picture was taken by George Hoelz. Coach Dave Hegnaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s prediction that Belle Plaine could beat Le Sueur on the Tiger court came true as the Giants were given a decisive 58-35 shellacking by Belle Plaine. Belle Plaineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s independent basketball team was nudged out 69-66 by New Prague. This was the second defeat for the Plainsmen and gave them a .500 average in the River League standings. In the opening paragraph in Cedric Adamsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; column in the

Neal McDevitt was back from Oakland, Calif., to spend the holidays with his parents, Mr. and Mrs. J.J. McDevitt. Ernest Schlingman was assigned to the position of section foreman for the railroad at Belle Plaine. Alois Deusterman was severely injured in a delayed explosion of a stick of dynamite in the Erkens gravel pit in Sand Creek Township. One arm had to be amputated at the elbow. Christmas that year was claimed to be the warmest Christmas on record. The thermometers reached a high of 52. The sun was clear and warm, and the day had an appearance of an Easter Sunday. The status of the Belle PlaineSt. Thomas judicial road was still in the courts. A large number of interested farmers, representing both sides of the issue, drove to Glencoe for what was considered the final hearing. Postmaster Joe Casey of Jordan died after a brief illness with a heart ailment. He was a member of the Belle Plaine K. of C., of whom a large number attended the funeral at Jordan. Bill Whitlock, Ben Neubeiser, Chris Zaun and Sylvan Taylor, our students at the University, were home for the holidays. Robert Van Horack was elected commander of the local Legion post and Dr. L.P. Hiniker vice commander. Joe Neisen came from Mahnomen to spend the holidays with his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Matt Neisen, and said he harvested 3,200 bushels of wheat on his farm that season. Mr. and Mrs. Walter Gatz moved into their new home just in time to celebrate Christmas in it.

120 Years Ago (1892)

Joe Lawrence of Jessenland marketed the largest turkey brought into Belle Plaine that season â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a 27 1/2-pound fowl, dressed and drawn. Construction plans for the proposed Orphan Home were halted when the chief donor reduced her promised aid by one-half. The windmill on the town well was to get an assist. The borough council purchased a four-horse engine to do the pumping. Stratton Bros. got the contract for $400. Two strangers were thrown off the train as it came to a stop at Belle Plaine, and they fought with the train crew on the platform and in the depot lanterns, chairs, stove and pokers were brought into play. A brakeman and one of the offenders were badly hurt. Everybody was singing and whistling the tune â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ta-ra-ra Bomm-de-ay.

201 West Raven Street â&#x20AC;˘ Belle Plaine

Kelby Woodard Named to House Leadership Post House Republicans recently elected State Rep. Kelby Woodard to serve as Assistant Minority Leader. The Belle Plaine Republican earned the leadership position just one month after being reelected to his second term in the House. Woodard will join the leadership team led by House Minority Leader Kurt Daudt, R-Crown, in advocating for Republican priorities during the upcoming biennium. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a great honor and I am eager to work with a united Republican caucus during a crucial point in our stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s history,â&#x20AC;? Woodard said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We face a number of significant chal-

lenges as well as opportunities in our great state. I am committed to working on behalf of hard working Minnesotans at a time when the DFL has stated its commitment to raising taxes and dramatically increasing the role of government in our lives.â&#x20AC;? Woodard also recently received his committee assignments for the new biennium. He will serve as the Republican lead on the Education Finance Committee. Woodard also will be a member of Ways and Means, Rules, Commerce and the Ethics committees. The 2013 legislative session begins with a swearing-in ceremony Jan. 8 at the Capitol in St. Paul.

Dahle Returning to Capitol Amidst Good Financial News

Senator-elect Kevin Dahle, DFL-Northfield, begins the 2013 legislative session with positive news. The state has $1.3 billion in revenue available to pay back the school shift -- $2.4 borrowed from K-12 education over the past decade to balance the budget. The legislature still owes school districts $1.1 billion to be paid back over the upcoming biennium and beyond. The state will pay $12.5 million to local school districts including Belle

Plaine, Northfield, Montgomery-Lonsdale and New Prague. Dahle said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am encouraged by the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s financial ability to pay back a portion of the school shift, but am aware of the challenges ahead to balance the budget and return the rest of the funds owed to our public schools.â&#x20AC;? Dahle won election to the Minnesota Senate for District 20 after a November recount. He will return to the capitol and represent the majority of the district he formerly served.

Fraud

formation when shopping online. Stolee said people should use business on secure Web sites, those beginning with hypertext transfer protocol secure (https) or inside a business. As a precaution, Fogarty has shut down his own debit card and ordered a new one. But replacing a credit card can take several business days. Like many people, Schoenbauer started using a debit card for the immediacy of the transaction. But now, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wondering if it would be better to go back to writing checks. Fogarty believes the instances of check fraud or more common than the scheme plaguing many Belle Plaine residents. He suggests regardless of the bank or credit union people use, they check their accounts each day for unauthorized charges. If they find any fraudulent charges, Fogarty suggests they notify the bank or credit union immediately.

(continued from page 1) credit/debit card use and the effects on the cardholderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ability to use it to pay bills or for gifts comes at a lousy time of year. Matt Fogarty, branch president at CornerStone Bank on East Commerce Drive in Belle Plaine, said the bank has received a â&#x20AC;&#x153;significantâ&#x20AC;? number of fraudulent claims against customersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; accounts. Fogarty said the cardholdersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; money must be covered with temporary credit and ultimately replaced if an investigation proves the cardholder is indeed the victim of fraud. He agrees with the theory someone has gained illegal access to account numbers through a credit/debit card processing service. Police also encourage caution with credit cards and credit in-

Schools visitors entering the buildings. Because the buildings have some physical limitations regarding their respective designs, Smith said those policies will be tightened, even if it means a visitor must endure some inconvenience. Belle Plaine Police Chief Tom Stolee said the single entry point to the schools is a significant measure to keep the buildings safe, a measure heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pushed for since 2010. At Belle Plaineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s two parochial schools, access to the buildings are also limited. At Our Lady of the Prairie, visitors must enter the building through the office door along East State Street. At Trinity Lutheran, access is limited through a dedicated entrance. Like the public schools, OLP and Trinity will continue using lock-down drills and other emergency management practices, said Principal Mindy Reeder. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Even before this tragedy in Newtown, Conn., we have been considering a video camera system to help provide more security,â&#x20AC;? said Trinity Principal Daniel Whitney. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Unfortunately, it appears that even though proper procedures were used at Sandy Hook Elementary School, the gunman was able to gain access. This spells the need for us as a community to be even more vigilant in watching over the well-being of our children.â&#x20AC;?

Birth Announcement

Josh Henning and Alissa Theis are proud to announce the birth of their daughter, Josalyn Nicole Henning.

with the families of the victims, with the families of all associated with that school, and with parents of school children across the country who have seen another safe place for their children changed forever,â&#x20AC;? Smith said in the message. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are certainly concerned about the safety of all students and staff within our school system here in Belle Plaine.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;The district will be reviewing our current security practices in the coming days and weeks to ensure that we are doing all that is possible to continue to provide a safe place for students to learn and for adults to work and visit.â&#x20AC;? At Belle Plaine High School, the easiest access to the building is through the main office. Visitors to the school find the only unlocked door is to the main office. The city pays for Belle Plaine police officer, Brian Vycital, to be in the building for much of the school day. At the school districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s two public elementary schools, visitors are expected to check in at the main offices. Vycital spends time in those buildings as well.

She married Charles Wolff of Madison Lake at St. Thomas Catholic Church in St. Thomas on June 16, 1937 and has lived on the Wolff farm at Madison Lake all these years. Happy Birthday, Madelyne. God Bless you, wishing you many blessings on this special day! Sam Cotton, son of Glenn and Marcia Cotton, grandson of Madelyne Wolff, has accepted a Principal Position at St. Felix Catholic School at Wabasha. Sam was a recent graduate from Mankato State College. So far he is happy, busy and

liking his new location. Students from here (Le Sueur) schools accompanied the Hilltop Concerts on Thursday, Dec. 6 at Hilltop gymnasium where they attended the musical "Happy the High-tech Snowman." This musical is filled with music of the winter season. Many students and families attended from here, Park Elementary. Grace and Caroline, daughters of Joshua and Heather Kinkeade of Jordan, were among the Christmas programs presented in Jordan on Friday evening. Annette Kinkeade and Edw. Rasmussen attended from Le Sueur. Annette is the grandmother of Grace and Caroline. Theresa Sullivan and Kathy Thomason of Belle Plaine, spent a week in Kissimmee, FL. They took in the sites of Tampa Bay and St. Petersburg, Islands of Adventure, Universal Studios and Capones supper club with their Christmas show. The weather was beautiful, it was in the 70â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all week.

New Prague Council May Change City Comprehensive Plan As it prepares for growth and change over the next 20 years, New Prague is beginning work updating its city comprehensive plan. The New Prague City Council was recently studied demographic changes as well as anticipated changes in housing needs in the community. City planners also informed the council of the likelihood of possible changes dealing with the addition of rental housing, road expansion, possible changes to minimum lot sizes in residential areas in the updated city

comprehensive plan. Councilors and staff discussed possible consideration of increases in the minimum residential lot size.

our offense for the last few minutes of the game,â&#x20AC;? Wellner said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our turnovers really hurt us. It is tough to win when you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get a shot off in 29 possessions. Their zone caused a lot of problems for us. It was the first time we have seen a zone and we were a little out of synch. We will get better at that as the season continues. We are very close to becoming a really great team, but the little things are holding us back. We need to value every possession and play every possession with intensity.â&#x20AC;? This time only one Tiger (Bigaouette) managed to reach double figures in scoring with 12 points. Karl and Dauwalter both chipped in eight, followed by Koepp and Meger with five apiece. Winders, Luke Narveson and Luke Bristlin had six, four and three points, respectively. Koepp had eight rebounds and three blocked shots, both team highs. 2012-13 BPHS Boysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Basketball Results and Remaining Schedule Dec. 11 at WEM L 62-61 Dec. 13 vs. LS-H W 72-65 Dec. 14 at Benson L 55-51 Dec. 21 vs. GFW Dec. 27-28 at St. James Tour.

College Grad

Thanks to our music department for two wonderful concerts leading into the holiday season. Last Monday night, the 7th through 12th grade band programs performed their Winter Concert and last night the 7th through 12th grade choirs performed their Holiday Concert â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Believe before a packed house. Thanks to all the musicians who performed in these wonderful programs. We are fortunate to have such high quality music programs here in Belle Plaine! I recently posted the following information on our school district website regarding the recent Sandy Hook School events. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our prayers and thoughts are with the people of Sandy Hook School and its surrounding communities. Our entire school family grieves the loss of life and innocence as a result of Friday morningâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shootings. The first and most important priority of our school district is the safety of students and staff. We call upon our entire school community to renew its efforts to keep children safe by reporting any safety concerns to school officials. Our children are our most precious resource, and our hearts are broken today. Please know, children may need extra care and support if/as they become aware of this tragic event. Here is what the Belle Plaine district is doing today and into the future: - All counselors, teachers, administrators and staff are encouraged to give each other an extra measure of support as they work to deal with the needs of all our children. - All safety procedures are being reviewed with a goal to do everything possible to keep children and staff from harm. - We are renewing our efforts to collaborate with local community agencies to create a united effort aimed at school safety. - We are directly asking our entire school community to renew its efforts to help us keep our children and schools safe by following district procedures for entering each of our buildings.â&#x20AC;? We are so fortunate to have such a strong and caring staff working each and every day within our schools to provide any emotional support to our students when needed in addition to the great teaching that they do every day. I am so thankful for our great staff and the job they do serving others on a daily basis. With the coming holiday break, I will not be submitting a column for the week of December 26th and January 3rd. Have a wonderful holiday season and a Happy New Year everyone. 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. Go Tigers and Panthers!

Photos must be taken in 2012 and shot within Belle Plaine or nearby. The top photos will be showcased in a photo gallery on the Herald’s Facebook page for viewers to vote on. Select

photos will be chosen for a 2013 calendar. To enter, e-mail a large photo to bp.herald@yahoo.com. Use “Let It Snow Photo Contest” in the subject.

Carver County Board Reduces 2013 Budget and Tax Levy The Carver County Board of Commissioners approved the 2013 levy and budget and the 2014 long-term financial plan at its Dec. 11 meeting. The $88.5 million 2013 budget is nearly $9 million less than the 2012 budget and will reduce the county’s portion of property taxes on average-value homes. The new budget calls for budget cuts to address increased operating costs and capturing new construction tax base to help fund capital projects. “This budget is based on anticipating a half-million dollars in increased operating costs in 2013 and offsetting those costs with budget cuts and new revenue,” said Board Chair James Ische. “It also captures an estimated $850,000 in new construction taxes, which will be used entirely for capital projects.” The budget decrease from the previous year reflects a decrease in capital outlay expen-

ditures from approximately $21 million to $12 million. This decrease is due to the completion of 2012 road and bridge projects that were funded by onetime turnback funds from the state and federal grants, and unspent funds from a 2008 bond issue. It includes a decrease of approximately $4.4 million in revenue from other governmental units at the federal, state and local level. The board also approved the 2014 and beyond long-term financial plan that focuses on areas that significantly impact future property tax levy and budgets. These include capital projects, facility, vehicle and equipment replacement costs, bond sales and debt services, and increased operating costs. The five-year plan outlines how new capital projects are expected to be funded without increasing the tax levy impact on the county’s average-value home.

in 2003. In the latest arrest, Pasek, 32, was stopped by a state trooper on Highway 169 between Jordan and Belle Plaine at 2:26 a.m. He was allegedly traveling 96 mph in a 65 mph zone. A portable breath test indicated that Pasek had a blood-alcohol concentration of .17, which is more than twice the legal limit. In 2003, Pasek reportedly paid a $1,025 fine, served 100 hours of community service and was suspended without pay for three days. The Scott County Attorney’s office has forwarded the latest case, which is still pending, to Carver County to avoid any possible conflict of interest. In other business Monday night, the council voted 4-1 to change the allowable start time of refuse haulers operating in the city from 6 a.m. to 7 a.m., effective Jan. 1. At its meeting in November, the public works committee recommended a change to the allowable start time in that construction activities can start no earlier than 7 a.m. The committee’s conclusion was that refuse haulers should be restricted to a start time of no earlier than 7 a.m., the same as construction activities. When addressing the issue two weeks ago, the council voted 3-3 to deny changing the allowable start time from 6 a.m. to 7 a.m. Some members of the council stated that the city should contact the contracted refuse haulers for their response to the proposed change before approving it. Public Works Superintendent Al Fahey reported Monday that he has since done so, and that although management of the refuse haulers stated that they would prefer a 6:30 a.m. start time, they will be able to work with 7 a.m. “It shouldn’t cause us much trouble residentially but commercially it would mean some adjustments,” stated Jason Nieson of Waste Management in a letter to the city. “This could potentially push back pick-up times into the later afternoons when the busses are rolling and residents are returning from work, which is something we try to avoid whenever possible. We can adapt to anything, so advise him (Fahey) to do what he feels is best for the fine residents of Belle Plaine.”

Casting the only no vote to changing the allowable start time from 6 a.m. to 7 a.m. was Council Member Scott Schneider. *Unanimously authorized staff to seek an art teacher to be an independent contractor for an Arts in the Park program planned for 2013. The Belle Plaine Park Board had allocated $1,200 of its budget for the program, which will include payment to the program coordinator. Staff reported that it will accept applications until the end of January, with a potential contract in February. The program will start in April and continue through the end of summer. *Unanimously approved Bell Pharmaceutical’s request for a non-conforming expansion permit at 200 Beaver Street West. The permit will allow for the exterior facade of the new building planned for the site to be comprised entirely of steel, which is classified as a class II material. Without the permit, the zoning ordinance calls for a minimum of 25 percent of class I materials, which include marble, granite or other natural stone, textured cement stucco, copper, porcelain and glass. The existing building is comprised of all steel. However, at the time of construction in 1997 there were no design standard requirements. On Nov. 19, the council approved Bell Pharmaceuticals’ site plan for a 2,208-squarefoot warehouse structure on its property at 200 West Beaver Street. The existing 900-squarefoot tin shed on the property will be demolished to help clear the way for the new post-frame structure. The estimated cost of the project is $35,690. *Unanimously approved the concept plan for Valley Business Park Second Addition, which is located south of Highway 169. The action was necessary in order to plat the property and “clean up boundaries,” which include the recently purchased public works facil-

ity site. The plan also includes a future driveway from County Road 7 to the public works facility, which is currently accessed from Diversified Drive. *Following a brief presentation by Jeff McDonald of the Canopy Group in Belle Plaine, the council unanimously approved a $1.5 million per occurrence limit on liability insurance coverage (as per state statute) for elected group and individual meeting law insurance coverage for the mayor and city council members, and affirming a $2,500 deductible for 2013. The above amounts are the same as those for this year. *Community Development Director Trisha Rosenfeld reported that she and council members Michael Pingalore and Scott Schneider met to discuss the potential long-term plan for a community center facility. “We will continue to have discussions as to whether an existing facility or property in Belle Plaine can be converted into some type of community center facility, or if starting from scratch makes more sense,” Rosenfeld reported. *Unanimously approved pay request No. 5 by Chard Tiling for $41,285 for work on the 2012 street improvement project, and pay request No. 4 by Chard Tiling for $21,170 for work on the 2012 Chestnut Street ravine project. The next regular meeting of the Belle Plaine City Council is scheduled for 6 p.m. Jan. 7 in the City Hall building at 218 North Meridian Street downtown.

Dayton Names Carver County Lawyer to District Court Bench

Gov. Mark Dayton appointment Carver County Assistant and Chief Deputy Attorney Michael D. Wentzell as a District Court Judge in Minnesotaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s First Judicial District, which includes Scott County. Wentzell replaces Judge Phillip T. Kanning, who retired earlier this year. Wentzell wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to move far. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be chambered in Chaska. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Michael Wentzell is an accomplished attorney and an exemplary public servant,â&#x20AC;? Dayton said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mr. Wentzellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s commitment to justice, ethics, and service make him the ideal candidate to serve the First District. I am confident he will carry out the responsibilities of this new role with honor and distinction.â&#x20AC;? Wentzell oversees office operations in relation to directing criminal, civil and juvenile legal services. He previously worked as an assistant Carver County attorney and as an associate attorney with the law firm of Collins, Buckley, Sauntry,

& Haugh, where he engaged in the general practice of law, including extensive work in family law. Wentzell received his bachelor of arts degree with highest honors from Concordia College in Moorhead, and received his law degree with honors from the University of Minnesota Law School. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am honored and humbled by this appointment. I look forward to continuing to serve the citizens of Carver County and the First Judicial District in my new role as judge,â&#x20AC;? Wentzell said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Carver County is a special place to live and practice law. There is a tremendous environment of cooperation and collaboration between all of the justice partners. I am thankful for the support of the Carver County Attorneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office, the district court judges, court administration, law enforcement, the defense bar, county commissioners and administration, and all of my other friends and colleagues at the Carv-

Guided by the same 7 principles since 1937 Electric cooperatives are a different type of utility — they are owned by the members they serve. Cooperatives operate at cost. All margins are returned to the membership.

In addition to its annual Capital Credit refund in April, totaling nearly $751,000, Minnesota Valley Electric Cooperative is pleased to announce a special bill credit. This credit represents $1.5 million and will appear on members’ December 2012 statement. This special refund is possible thanks to 2012 energy sales ahead of projections, strong commercial growth, wholesale power costs rising at a slower than anticipated pace and MVEC staff keeping operating costs at a minimum.

We thank you for the opportunity to serve you as member-owners of Minnesota Valley Electric Cooperative.

Katie Cates Completes Student Foster Pet Care Needed Teaching for Fall Semester Katie Cates, a Southwest Minnesota State University education student, has completed her student teaching this semester. She was placed in second grade with classroom mentor Kari Deering in the Savage School District. Cates is an elementary education and early childhood education major from Belle Plaine. In order to reach this milestone as SMSU, student teachers must maintain a 2.8 cumulative grade-point-average and have completed 90 credits toward their teaching degree. They must have successfully completed all their core coursework, including all their methods courses with lab placements, Pre-Student Teaching Experience (PSTE) and passed the Minnesota Teachers Licensing Examination (MTLE) Basic Skills Tests in Reading, Writing, and Mathematics before being able to student teach.

SMSUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s student teachers are placed for a full semester, which provides them with a 15- to 16-week experience. They are mentored by the best practice teachers in the school districts across Minnesota. SMSU places 70-120 teacher candidates in the various locations across Minnesota, and by request in other states and countries each year.

Volunteers are needed to provide temporary foster pet homes for puppies, cats, rabbits, kitten litters and dogs in Carver, Scott and Hennepin counties. The Carver-Scott Humane Society is without a permanent shelter, so all abandoned pets are housed in foster care until permanent adoption occurs. Once or twice a month the foster family comes with the pet to a public adoption day for three hours, held in Eden Prairie and Chaska. The Society provides medical care, food and litter. Volunteers provide a safe, loving home for an average of three to six months. Once a month volunteers come with the pet to a public adoption day for three hours; usually held in Eden Prairie. If you could help a needy pet by fostering or donating litter or unopened pet food, please call the Society at 368-3553, line 4. More information about the Society is also available at www.carverscoths.org.

Gaylord Wants Costs Before Signing On to Mn/DOT Project Gaylord city councilors know the 2014 downtown street reconstruction project planned for 2014 will cost about $8.6 million. But they werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t about to formally support a joint powers agreement with the state without seeing a breakdown of the projectâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s costs. A draft of the joint powers agreement did not include how much of the cost the city would be expected to pay and how much the state would pay, an omission that raised concern with Gaylord Mayor Brenda Pautsch. She opposed approving the agreement without the numbers.

The proposed project will effectively bisect downtown Gaylord. Mn/DOT and the City of Gaylord will replace deteriorated roadways as well as aged and failing storm sewer, sanitary sewer and water mains -- on Mn/DOT highways 22, 5 and 19 in Gaylord. The project work will consist of the removal and reconstruction of the entire roadway pavement, all curb and gutter, all entrances and most sidewalk for about three blocks along Highway 22 south of Main Street, for approximately nine blocks of Highway 22 north of Main Street (to North

Avenue), one block of Highway 19 south of Main Street (to Sibley Avenue) and five and one-half blocks of Main Street itself from Sixth Avenue to east of West First Street. Improvements will include bringing the reconstructed pedestrian walkways and curb ramps up to current Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards. The project also includes milling and overlaying of approximately three and a half blocks of Highway 22 south of the railroad tracks. Mn/DOT expects to let the project for construction in April of 2014, with construction occurring in multiple stages over the 2014 and 2015 construction seasons. The city will consider the draft agreement against at its Dec. After years of discussion on 19 meeting.

After a series of community meetings and approval of the final design, construction of the park will begin late next summer. -- Shakopee Valley News

Kuhnke’s (continued from page 1)

the house and spares the neighbors from repeatedly listening to the same eight songs via a loudspeaker. The Christmas light show is the product of Mitch’s ability to recognize music, program each lyric, and note into a computer using a program called SongO-Rama. Listening to each of the eight songs in super slow motion, he sequentially choreographs each word, each note to a specific set of lights on the house and in the front yard. A 2011 graduate of Belle Plaine High School, Kuhnke played clarinet in band for eight years after the family moved from Illinois to Belle Plaine. The experience gave him a thorough understanding of how words and melodies interact. Kuhnke had no idea how to use Song-O-Rama four-plus years ago. With a set of lights on the floor of an office on the upper-level of his parent’s house and a stereo, he taught himself through painstaking process of trial and error until it was just right. It takes about six hours to program each song one note at a time. The songs include classic holiday songs, some rock adaptations and even a country version of a Christmas song. He translated a Christmas song from Swahili into English. Overall, the eight songs and a drive-in-movie-style notice the show is about to begin lasts just under 30 minutes. Kuhnke draws the line at some heavy metal songs and is not willing to subject himself to anything in the rap or hip-hop genres at slow motion. But the time in front of a computer is easy compared to the set-up and take-down. Fitting the work into a schedule that includes classes at South

Central Technical College and a part-time job, it takes about two weeks to set up the lights show. Jackie Kuhnke is well known at area home improvement centers. “I’m just the gopher,” she said. “Mitch does all the work.”

‘. . . While Wearing Shorts’

He starts in September, adhering to his father Robert’s adage, Christmas lights are best installed while wearing shorts. The task includes strategically placing floodlights and several dozen lines of lights around windows, garage doors, on the house and in a tree. He planned to count the number of strands of lights and extension cords but forgot. It’s probably a higher number than Kuhnke cares to think about. He also carefully makes sure none of the extension cords – they use several hundred feet using cords ranging from 25 to 100 feet long – never cross the sidewalk from the driveway to the front door. Overall, the family has about $1,000 – maybe more – invested in hardware to make the Christmas lights show possible. “It’s a lot of fun,” he said. Once all the lights are set up, Kuhnke hopes snow stays away. The LED Christmas lights don’t generate enough heat to melt snow that covers the lights. The snow that fell earlier this month sent him to the roof of his parent’s house to clear snow from the lights atop the house. Working with his hands, he carefully made sure each light was visible from the street while trying not to fall. “It was not fun,” Kuhnke said.

His attention to small details is impressive. Mitch was considering a return trip to the roof after noticing two of the lights we re not positioned upright. The eight songs Kuhnke are all holiday related. He’s adding a ninth song -- R.E.M’s “End of the World” -- for Friday (Dec. 21), the day the Mayan calendar predicts the end of the world. Assuming the world does not come to a cataclysmic end, Kuhnke will remove the song from the playlist for the next day’s performance. Mitch got the idea for the ninth song a few years ago. The ninth song one of the small additions he’s made to the show over time. Thanks to the Internet, people well beyond Belle Plaine’s borders have enjoyed Kuhnke’s creativity with holiday lights. They are on You Tube at “Awesomehouselights.” He has set lights to hundreds of songs, including “Baba Yetu,” a song Grammy-Award winning composer Christopher Tin wrote, on You Tube. Tin was impressed with Kuhnke’s work. On Tin’s Facebook page, he posted a link to You Tube. “This is flattering and amusing at the same time,” Tin wrote. “Some people are so creative.” Kuhnke composed a light show to the theme music for “Skyrim,” a popular action video game. It has been seen on You Tube over 631,000 times. With the house holding about as many strands of lights it can logically hold, the young maple tree in front of it seems the most likely place for expansion. They’ve looked into the cost of a bucket truck that would allow for more lights higher off the ground. The tree’s thin limbs won’t support anyone climbing up to place lights more than 15 feet off the ground. The LED lights are what make the presentation affordable. They add only $20 to the household electric bill. Most of that additional cost is attributable to the floodlights. “They use most of the juice,” Mitch said.

Green Isle City Levy Reduces Most Property Taxes in 2013 Council OKs Slightly Lower Operating Budget in 2012’s Final Planned Meeting

her property, Glover left the tax hearing frustrated. She said the tax climate in Green Isle would discourage companies to move to Green Isle. The city said it would have had to make significant cuts in its general fund to eliminate the tax hike commercial businesses will face. Green Isle is already cutting its budget in 2013, a budget the council unanimously approved. Green Isle’s $458,006 general fund in 2013 is $4,072 less than the city’s 2012 general fund. The city cut over $8,580 from its general government spending and $2,000 for elections. It added $2,558 to the city clerk, $600 on financial administration, $2,500 for police, $4,303 for street maintenance and improvement and $968 for parks/ recreation.

Although not everybody is thrilled with the impact of the Green Isle City Council’s decision to hold the line on the city’s property tax levy for 2013, the council heartily OK’d it and the operating budget Tuesday, Dec. 11. The city’s levy hearing drew only one resident, Janie Glover, owner of Club New Yorker. She’s frustrated her taxes increased by 17 percent for next year after a 13 percent jump the previous year. Green Isle’s 2013 levy -$502,327 – reflects no increase over the previous year. The amount levied includes bond payments. Worth just over $153,000. The city council’s decision not to increase the property tax levy and the ongoing reduction in the value of property in the city means most Green Isle residents will see a decrease on the city’s portion of their overall tax bill. According to the city’s finance consultant, AEM Financial, a house valued at $93,800 for tax purposes in 2012 should see the city’s portion of the tax bill drop by $153. The owner of a house valued at $63,300 should see the Green Isle portion of the tax bill reduced by $118. Brad Falteysek, one of the partners at AEM Financial, said the tax break houses endured prompted the state to shift the burden toward non-homestead and residential properties. The city’s portion of property taxes, even with no increase in the city’s levy, means a non-residential property worth $45,000 will see a $327 increase in city taxes, according to AEM Financial. A business worth $459,600 will endure a $4,441 increase in property taxes. Though understanding of the impact a state decision had on

relief association to cover the pension of retired firefighter, Councilor John Schauer. n Heard a report from Sheldon Mathews of Mathews Sewer Systems on sewer lines under Dale Circle the company televised. Two of three lines televised need to be dug up and repaired. The council OK’d Mathews’ recommendation that two additional lines be televised. n Heard an update on the Eustis Building and progress toward its demolition. The city is waiting for the natural gas line to the building to be removed and the final personal items removed by its owners. Once those items are completed, M.J. Neisen can commence with demolition. n Decided not to hold its second meeting of December, effectively ending the council tenures of Mayor Randal Bruegger, who did not seek re-election. Schauer is also leaving the council. He was appointed during the fall to fill the remainder of an unexpired term. The council will meet Jan. 8 and swear-in Councilor Dale ZumBerge as Green Isle’s mayor plus Todd Burg, Shawn Harms, Brian Oelfke and Mark Wentzlaff as councilors.

In other action at the Dec. 11 meeting, the Green Isle City Council: n Paid bills totaling $27,900.57. n Discussed new locks/keys on Green Isle Community School building. New locks and keys will reportedly cost between $800 and $900. n Released funds to the fire

City Council Approves New Bench and Tree Memorial Program Policy The Belle Plaine City Council recently put its stamp of approval on a new memorial park bench and tree program policy for the city. According to Community Development Director Trisha Rosenfeld, the Belle Plaine Park Board had been discussing the implementation of the policy for several months before making its final recommendation last Monday. Under the policy, individuals can memorialize a family member or other loved one by placing a bench or tree in a city park of their choice. Program Highlights Benches – For a cost of $1,000, the city will provide an 8-foot vinyl bench, including the pad, and secure it for you. For an additional $100, a 5- by 8-inch en-

graved plaque will be attached to the seat of the bench. Trees – For a cost of $500, a 2- to 3-inch diameter tree will be installed by the public works department. For an additional $100, a 5- by 8-inch engraved plaque will be installed next to the tree. You can choose the tree from the following choices – ash, birch, linden, maple and various types of evergeen trees or other approved tree types. The city will be responsible for the installation and future maintenance of your bench or tree. “This historical dedication provides a lasting remembrance in honor of a loved one and enhances the meaning of a bench or tree to observers,” states the city’s application form and bro-

chure. “The gift is also a valuable contribution to the park system.” For more information, call Belle Plaine City Hall at 952873-5553.

the home team 24-5 the rest of the half to go up by nine at intermission. “We started making some shots and our press got to them,” Carlson said. “Mariena Hayden sparked us inside at the end of the first half and did a good job getting to the basket. The second half was played fairly evenly and we held on to win an important conference game. Haley Fogarty did a good job of taking control and leading our pressure defense. Claire Otto scored well for us and Jamie Read played one of her best games so far. Emily Vinkemeier and Ellie Murphy played very well at the end of the game.” Otto and Fogarty led the Tigers with 17 and 16 points, respectively. Rounding out the scoring for Belle Plaine were Hayden (9), Read (8), Meyer (4), Murphy (2) and Vinkemeier (2). Hayden had a team-high 10 rebounds, followed by Murphy with six.

The Scott West wrestling team traveled to Rochester this past weekend for the prestigious Minnesota Christmas Tournament. The Panthers wrestled their way to a top-10 finish as they scored 129.5 team points, which was good enough for a ninth-place finish in a strong tournament filed of 36 teams. “Overall, we wrestled a pretty good tournament,” comments Scott West coach Darren Ripley. “We had five wrestlers that placed in the top eight of their weight bracket with a couple of others that lost out in their match to place.” The tournament would see a new winner as St. Michael-Albertville won its second ever Minnesota Christmas Tournament team title, dethroning Apple Valley with 256.5 team points to 247. Kasson-Mantorville made it an exciting three-team race as the Komets finished in third place by advancing six wrestlers to the championship round and winning five individual titles. There were no individual titles for Scott West. Andrew Fogarty advanced to the championship round with a thrilling 3-1 overtime win over Simley’s Mack Short in the semifinals. It was the fourth meeting between the two over the last two years, and with Saturday’s outcome, they now have two wins apiece. With the match tied at 1-1 after regulation, Short would start a flurry of action on the edge of the mat as he exploded with a high-crotch attempt that was countered by Fogarty as the Panther wrestler brought the match to an end with an ankle pick that sat the Spartan wrestler on his rear for the winning take down. “That was a good flurry of action by both wrestlers,” insists Ripley. “Andrew did a good job of preventing Short from scoring a couple of times during the flurry before doing a good job of transitioning to his own winning offensive attack.” Apple Valley’s Mark Hall would be on the attack in the 152-pound championship as he used a double overhook lateral drop to throw Fogarty to his back and the ensuing pin fall call and his third-straight Minnesota Christmas Tournament title. Hall, just a freshman and a two-time state champion, was impressive as he pinned his way through the tournament. “Hall is a pretty special talent and is considered one of the best wrestlers in the country right now as just a freshman,”

states Ripley. “Andrew actually wrestled him up at Fargo this summer at the Cadet National Freestyle Tournament and was able to give him a very competitive match by forcing him into some good scramble situations, but that Hall throw ended any possibility of that happening tonight.” The possibilities in the 126pound weight class seemed to be endless as the tournament bracket was considered by many to be the toughest in this year’s Minnesota Christmas Tournament. Scott West had Zach Siegle entered and he was one of 15-rated wrestlers in the bracket. Siegle had a big quarterfinal round match against Forest Lake’s #1-rated James Pleski, who had defeated Siegle last year at the Minnesota Christmas Tournament. Siegle would avenge that loss on Saturday morning as he made a lone second-period escape hold up in a 1-0 win. “Zach did a great job on top and got a little revenge for the loss last year,” suggests Ripley. In the semifinals, Siegle looked to avenge another loss when he took on West Fargo’s #1-rated Jordan Shearer. Shearer had defeated Siegle previously at the Rumble on the Red. It appeared that Siegle might be on his way to the championship round as he scrambled his way to an opening take down and a 3-0 lead. But Shearer came back with a late second-period take down on the edge of the mat and a third-period reversal for the 4-3 win. Kasson-Mantorville’s Nate Thomas would win the 126-pound title by defeating Shearer in the championship, while Siegle would finish in fourth place after defeating STMA’s Tanner Mills 8-0 and losing to New Prague’s Griffin Parriott 3-2, the latter of whom had lost his first match of the tournament 5-1 to Apple Valley’s Brock Morgan before coming back to win seven straight matches to place third. Scott West sophomore David Flynn followed up his freshman fourth-place showing from a year ago with a solid fifth-place performance at 113 pounds. After dropping a 4-0 quarterfinal bout to Amery, Wisconsin’s Hunter Marko, Flynn came back with two hard-fought wins over Centennial senior Mike Mischke and his second win of the tournament over Owatonna’s #8-rated Brandon Moen 3-0. STMA’s #1-rated Mitchell McKee made a lone first-period take down stand up

for a 2-0 win over Flynn in the consolation semifinals before the Panther wrestler finished off his tournament with a dominating 8-0 win over Wayzata’s #7 -rated Jake Stufft. “David is not giving up a lot of points and was right in every match,” states Ripley. Scott West 138-pounder Luke Zilverberg did not need to win by points as he recorded two pins with the second coming against Bismarck, North Dakota’s Forrest Pifer. It was a big pin for Zilverberg as it nailed down his 100th career win in a Scott West singlet as he became the 29th Scott West wrestler to win 100 matches. Zilverberg’s brother, Tyler, won 134 matches for the Panthers before graduating in 2011. “Luke has wrestled his way to a very good career and has obviously been a big part of our team success over the last few years,” states coach Ripley. “It’s always good to see a wrestler reach a career milestone like 100 wins.” Win 101 would have to wait until later in the day on Saturday as Zilverberg dropped an 8-3 decision to Wayzata’s #4rated Weston Droegemueller in the quarterfinals. Zilverberg bounced back with an 8-3 win over New Prague’s Richard Reinartz and an 11-3 triumph over Spirit Lake, Iowa’s Zach Skopec. Those two wins propelled Zilverberg into the consolation semifinals, where he met up with an old rival in Stewartville’s Brett Stolarzyk, who had beaten Zilverberg a couple of times two years ago at the Rumble on the Red and the state tournament. The #3rated Stolarzyk would win a hard-fought 2-0 victory before Zilverberg finished off his fifthplace performance with a 4-0 win over West Fargo’s Kollin Kragnes. You never know who might have a breakthrough tournament and become a Minnesota Christmas Tournament placewinner but Scott West 170pounder Derek Dahlke was an odds-on favorite to do just that as he wrestled his way to an eighth-place finish. After losing by technical fall to White Bear Lake’s #4-rated Tommy Longendyke in the second round, Dahlke came back with three straight wins, including a hardfought 5-3 decision over Jeremy Redmond of Mounds View before locking up his Minnesota Christmas Tournament placing with an impressive 13-0 major decision over Javier Tapia of Spirit Lake, Iowa. “Derek really put some nice matches together,” insists Ripley. “He wrestled with good fundamentals and good attacks and delivered the type of tournament performance that we expected from him.” While Ben Kelvington (106) and Jake Weierke (132) both lost matches in the round to place, Scott West 120-pounder Jacob Backlund delivered a big winning performance on Friday night as he stayed in the tournament with a thrilling comeback over Jackson County Central’s #7-rated Jordan Biehn. With Backlund trailing 4-1 late in the match, he scored a fireman’s take down and with just seconds remaining, drove Biehn to his back for a 5-4 winning set of back points. “That was a great win by Ja-

cob,” exclaims Ripley. “That is a classic example of not giving up and wrestling the full six minutes.” Backlund was knocked out of the tournament Saturday morning as he lost a 7-3 match to Brenden Buryska of Owatonna. Scott West will close its preChristmas schedule on the road with a Thursday night meet against Tri-City United followed by a trip up to St. Michael-Albertville to take on the Minnesota Christmas Tournament-winning Knights. “Just like during the Christmas Tournament, we are looking for six minutes of fight and improvement,” insists Ripley. “We need to continue to fight and improve on a daily and weekly basis no matter who we are wrestling against.” Scott West and STMA have a long history of wrestling, with Scott West winning last year’s contest 33-25. 2012-13 Scott West Dual Results and Remaining Schedule Dec. 6 at E.

Tigers Split Two MRC Games Belle Plaine Drops Two of Three by Dan Ruud The Belle Plaine High School girlsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; basketball team split a pair of Minnesota River Conference road games last week, losing 61-50 at Watertown-Mayer on Tuesday before bouncing back to defeat Sibley East 58-50 on Thursday. The Tigers, 2-1 in the MRC, 4-3 overall, were scheduled to host Mayer Lutheran in a MRC game Tuesday night after this edition of the Herald went to press. Next up is a nonconference game at home against Hutchinson 7:30 p.m. this Thursday. Belle Plaine will head to Norwood Young America for a holiday tournament Dec. 28-29. Watertown-M 61, Tigers 50 Belle Plaine surrendered a sixpoint lead early in the second half as Watertown-Mayer rallied for an 11-point MRC victory in Watertown. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This was a tough, physical game for us,â&#x20AC;? said Belle Plaine coach Randy Carlson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They (W-M) are very quick defensively and are all over you in the half court. We did a good job against it in the first half but not so well in the second half. I thought we lost a little poise in the second half and let the game get to us. Beating good teams is difficult and we need to do a better job of making plays when things are going against us. Finishing shots with confidence will be really huge for us down the line. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll learn from this and improve.â&#x20AC;? Haley Fogarty accounted for 20 of Belle Plaineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 50 points. Mariena Hayden and Claire Otto both chipped in eight points, followed by Ellie Murphy with six and Amara Meyer four. Sophie Brazil and Jamie Read both had two. Hayden had eight rebounds, while Murphy and Fogarty both had seven. Tigers 58, Sibley East 50 Belle Plaine fell behind 13-3 early in the game but outscored

(continued on page 20)

by Dan Ruud The Belle Plaine High School boysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; basketball team had a busy first week of the season as it played three games in four days, including a disheartening overtime loss at WatervilleElysian-Morristown last Tuesday, which was followed by a conference victory over Le Sueur-Henderson on Thursday and then a long bus ride to a tournament in Benson, which was cut short by one game due to weather. The Tigersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; lone outing at Benson was a fourpoint loss to the host team on Friday. Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game against Paynesville Area was the one wiped away from the slate. The Tigers, 1-0 in the Minnesota River Conference, 1-2 overall, will take on GibbonFairfax-Winthrop in a nonconference game 7:30 p.m. this Thursday at the BPHS gym. Belle Plaine will also be in action in a holiday tournament Dec. 27-28 in St. James. WEM 62, Tigers 61 Belle Plaine led almost the entire game, the key word, of course, being almost. The Tigers grabbed a 2-0 lead after the first 17 seconds, and other than a 5-5 tie a couple of minutes later, never trailed in regulation. In fact, Belle Plaine had leads of 13-5, 21-8 and 2719, the latter of which was the score at intermission. The Tigers stretched the lead to 42-32 with 10:58 left in the game, at which time the Bucs began to chip away at the margin. The Tigers still led 57-53 before WEM closed to with two points with 40 second to play. The score remained 57-55 until the Bucs hit a pair of free throws with 15 seconds to play, which led to overtime. Belle Plaine led most of the extra session as well until WEMâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cole Pope canned a shot to give the home team their first lead of the night at 60-59 and an eventual 62-61 victory. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a tale of two halves. The Tigersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Haley Fogarty tossed in a team-high 20 points at We played really well in the Watertown-Mayer last Tuesday night. first half and struggled in the second half. We had first-game problems that every team has. We were a little overaggressive, resulting in a lot of fouls in the second half,â&#x20AC;? said Tigers coach John Wellner. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That allowed WEM to shoot a lot of free throws, which they made a lot of. More importantly, the made free throws allowed them to set up their press, which prevented us from getting in a flow defensively. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need to find a second ball-handler to help relieve some of the pressure and get us into our offense,â&#x20AC;? Wellner continued. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We did a lot of things

n o s a e S e h t s i â&#x20AC;&#x2122;T

Belle Plaineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jack Winders had 10 rebounds, four assists and two steals against LS-H Thursday night at the BPHS gym. well. We played better defense than we had all of last year. We did a terrific job on offensive rebounds and we made some outside shots when we needed some. We rebounded extremely well and used our size to block shots effectively. It was just one or two plays that gave WEM the advantage and we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do enough of the little things, like helping on screens, meeting every pass and playing with our knees bent. Those things donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t show up in the box score, but they do make the difference between winning and losing.â&#x20AC;? The Tigers had four players score in double figures. Included were Gavin Dauwalter (16), Aaron Bigaouette (13), Sam Karl (11) and Alec Koepp (10). The other scorers were Jacob Meger (7), followed by Jack Winders and Brandon Boateng both with two. Dauwalter and Koepp led the team in rebounds with eight apiece, while Koepp added six and Bigaouette five. Tucker Kinniry sparked the Bucs with 21 points. Tigers 72, LS-H 65 This time the Tigers trailed most of the game but were on top when it mattered most as they won their MRC opener against the visiting Giants 7265. Belle Plaine had to overcome a 50-38 deficit early in the second half to pick up its first and so far only victory of the season.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;This game was the exact opposite of WEM,â&#x20AC;? Wellner said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We started out very slow and very lethargic. We did not have much energy on defense. We were not sprinting back on transition and we did not close out on their shooters. We did a much better job of that in the second half. They shot 57 percent in the first half and only 22 percent in the second half. We picked up our intensity level and did not give them as many open shots. Our post players did a great job in the second half of playing unselfish and smart. Sam Karl had the best game of his career and really carried us offensively in the second half. Jacob Meger and Jack Winders both showed how players can help their team win without scoring that much.â&#x20AC;? Only five Tigers scored in the game but four of them were in double figures â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Karl (20), Dauwalter (19), Bigaouette (16) and Koepp (13). Meger had the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s other four points. Dauwalter and Winders both had 10 rebounds and Meger nine. Benson 55, Tigers 51 The Tigers blew a nine-point lead with seven minutes left in the game as host Benson rallied for a 55-51 victory. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We just struggled to get into

Toys for Tots Bound Brodie and Torah Barrett of Belle Plaine (pictured above), along with family, friends and neighbors, recently conducted a toy drive for Toys for Tots. According to their mother Lisa Barrett, a similar drive (for food) was conducted last month. “Torah and Brodie decided they wanted to sell many of their toys to collect money so they could buy food for the food shelf back in November,” Lisa said. “With the help of friends, family and neighbors, the kids collected over 350 pounds of food. They decided they wanted to continue giving, so their next mission was Toys for Tots.” With help from their neighbor Dan Schneider and his friends and family, along with Torah’s and Brodie’s friends and families, the group collected over 75 toys, gift cards and cash donations.”

Holy Family to Present ‘Legends of Christmas’ Holy Family Academy will present “Legends of Christmas” on Sunday, Dec. 23 at Chatfield Elementary School in Belle Plaine. The presentation will include songs and poems from the different classes and two short plays about the “Legends of Christmas.”

The program will begin with a silent auction at 5:30 p.m. with items donated from many local merchants. The student presentation will then follow at 6:30 p.m. The silent auction will conclude at 9 p.m. There will also be a raffle drawing at 9 p.m. for cash prizes. A bake sale of Christmas goodies will be available for all to enjoy. Holy Family Academy is a private Catholic school in rural Belle Plaine. It presently has 20 students in grades K-12. Holy Family Academy was established and has been part

of the Belle Plaine community since 1991. The Academy coops with Belle Plaine High School for most of its extracurricular activities. Raffle tickets are still available for sale. Call the Academy at 952-873-2582. Tickets will be sold the night of the silent auction until 8:45 p.m. Come and enjoy an evening of wonderful singing and entertainment. There will be no admission for this event. Refreshments will be served after the program.

Gaylord Man Killed in Crash A 29-year-old Gaylord man was killed in a one-vehicle crash in Sibley County at approximately 7:45 a.m. Saturday. According to the Sibley Country Sheriff’s Office, Daniel

Lowell Grams died at the scene after he was ejected from his vehicle that went into a ditch and rolled several times. The crash took place on County Road 10 about three miles from Gaylord.

Trinity Lutheran to Present ‘Tidings of Joy’ Tonight Children at St. John-Assumption Catholic Church presented their annual Christmas play Sunday (Dec. 16). The play -- “The Christmas Extra” -- heralds Christ’s birth and the Christmas miracle. It includes dozens of children in the church’s youth religious education program.

John and Shannon Bergs Family Wins Home Decorating Contest The John and Shannon Bergs residence is the 2012 winner of the Belle Plaine Home Decorating Contest, which is organized annually by the Belle Plaine Rotary Club. The home, which is located at 162 Sunset Drive, is surrounded by an array of lighted holiday decor, including candy canes, glittery snowmen and trees, as well as an inflatable Santa and penguin. Shannon Bergs said the exterior decorations are the work of John and their children – J.P., Kellen and Ryan. “I try to stay out of it,” said Shannon, giving the credit to the guys of the family. She added that John is the head of the operation. “Sometimes he has reluctant helpers (the kids) but he usually gets them out there.” Shannon said the interior of the house is also extensively decorated every holiday season, which she says “is more of a joint effort” when it comes to involving herself. John is a physical education teacher at Belle Plaine High School, while Shannon works at home as a travel agent. J.P. attends Minnesota State University, Mankato, while Kellen and Ryan are students in the Belle Plaine School District. The Bergs will receive approximately $350 in cash and prizes, which may help with their upcoming electric bill. The other top five entries and their respective anticipated cash and prize amounts this year (see photos) are second place, Al Bartolomei, 92 Oakwood Drive ($250); third place, Jenny Wolf, 905 West Prairie Street ($115); fourth place, Kevin and Michelle Soller, 710 West South Street ($75); and fifth place, Mitch Kuhnke, 705 Butler Drive ($60), the latter of whom’s outdoor display also includes music (see story on page 1). Bartolomei’s display may very well have the largest electric bill attached to it of the five winners as the front, back and side lawns are densely populated by lighted holiday figures and trees. About the only thing that isn’t lit up is the fire hydrant in the middle bottom of the photo. All the above entrants will receive prizes for their efforts. Prizes were donated by Belle Plaine Rotary, State Bank of Belle Plaine, Cornerstone State Bank, Cenex, Rucks Meats, Matt Saxe Chevrolet, Coborn’s Superstore, Emma Krumbee’s General Store, Strait Smiles Family Dentistry, Johan’s Bar and Grill, JD’s Auto Body, Berger Interiors, Kwik Trip, Steffen’s Hardware, Prairie Farm Supply, North American Safety and Belle Plaine Farmers Market. Other households that entered this year include 9075 Galena Way, 2 Woodridge Drive, 400 West Church Street, 904 South Elm Street, 215 West Raven Street, 609 East Church Street, 14471 Blakeley Trail and 1010 West Prairie Street.
