Power Line Land Issues Frustrating Area Landowners

As landowners, agents and staff from CapX 2020 continue to debate the value of residential and agricultural land affected by the transmission line crossing Sibley and Scott counties and southern Minnesota, lawyers and lawmakers will also have their say on the level of compensation awarded. One thing is potentially certain, the issue won’t likely be wrapped up quickly.

easement. But the law allows CapX, a consortium of 11 power companies including Xcel Energy and Great River Energy, to decide whether it will purchase the residential or agricultural property. The process could take more than a year to complete, leaving landowners waiting and frustrated. Monday, Dan Lesher the lead person on CapX’s land rights acquisition team, said he’s aware of 15 requests from farmers in Sibley and Scott counties interested in the power line group acquiring their farms. CapX has accepted four of the 15 requests. Through both counties, eminent domain boards have yet to approve any awards to landowners, whether the acquisition is for an easement or the entire property, Lesher said.

Most of the farmers in Scott and eastern Sibley counties have until early-April to decide if they want the group to acquire their properties via the buy the farm law, Lesher said. CapX has several weeks to decide if it is willing to do so once it accepts a farmer’s decision and determines the farm is economically viable.

Weighing-in from St. Paul

City Council Gets Stuck on Garage Door Height Issues Dog Park Gets Official Approval, Rules Set Forth by Dan Ruud The Belle Plaine City Council last Tuesday night had a full agenda of items, ranging from recognizing local karate school students to authorizing the opening of a dog park to discussing garage door and accessory building heights. As for the latter, the council could not come to a conclusion on a proposal that would allow accessory buildings to be the same height as the primary structure on properties. City Council Member Scott Schneider, the council’s liaison for the planning and zoning commission, said the commission had “worked long and hard” on its recommendation to allow property owners more flexibility in meeting their accessory building needs. During the public hearing that

preceded the council’s discussion, Ashby Carter, alternate member of the planning and zoning commission, spoke against the proposed ordinance, expressing concern over what he felt may result in a negative impact on the aesthetics in some neighborhoods. Nate Hvidsten, a member of the planning and zoning commission, had submitted written testimony in support of the ordinance. Schneider concurred with Hvidsten. However, fellow council members Gary Trost and Paul Chard agreed with Carter, expressing concern over not just the aesthetic aspect of the proposal, but what property owners may be able to do inside their expanded accessory structures in terms of business, such as working on multiple race cars or large trucks. “I don’t think we should approve this,” Trost said. Mayor Mike Pingalore said he felt like he was caught in the middle between both sides, and expressed a desire to reach

some sort of compromise. Following more of the same discussion, the council elected to table the issue and send it back to planning and zoning. In other business last Tuesday night, the council put its official stamp of approval on holding an open house at 6 p.m. April 22 for the opening of a dog park at the hockey rink on the 200 block of South Market Street. The dog park will be open during the non-skating months. The following rules will be posted at the park: (1) Owners are liable for damage and/or injury inflicted by their dog. (2) Dogs must be leashed prior to entering and upon leaving the off-leash area. (3) Dogs must have current dog license to use the park. (4) Owners must pick up and dispose of dog feces in on-site trash cans. (5) Owners must prevent aggressive behavior, including biting, fighting and excessive barking by the dogs. (6) Do not allow children to approach or pet dogs without permission from the owner. (7) Hunting, discharging of firearms and dog-training devises are prohibited. (8) Park is open from sunrise to sunset. (9) Owners must remain in the area with their dog at all times. (10) No tobacco or alcohol is to be brought into the dog park. Park board members plan to have dog treats and hot dogs available for the public at the open house. Local businesses

Trisha McGovern flapped her hands quickly when stimulated by classroom activity or other children around her. As an autistic student, the motion helped McGovern process what was happening nearby. Her mother, Kelly Ploumen, recalls a day when Trisha was a third-grader and, with mom’s permission, students could ask McGovern anything they wanted about her autism. The session helped build understanding of students with autism. “No questions were off limits,” Ploumen said. McGovern is proud of her classmates. She credits that day in third grade with their acceptance. “I couldn’t choose better classmates than the ones I’ll graduate with in a few years,” she said. Today, McGovern is in mainstream classes, a high-functioning autistic student much like her 10th-grade classmates walking the halls of Belle Plaine Junior-Senior High. She’s a student with a powerful message and a heartfelt request of all her schoolmates, Please don’t use the ‘R’ word – Retarded. “It’s a medical term,” she said, defining an intellectually delayed person. It’s also a hurtful word, a word filled with negative connotations and lack of understanding. It also is used for people who act foolishly and inappropriately, McGovern said. “It’s an offensive word,” Ploumen said. This week in the junior-senior high school’s common area, McGovern will be standing at a table asking her schoolmates to sign a pledge not to use that hurtful word. She’ll wrap up her pledge campaign tomorrow since Friday is an early-release day at the school. A federal law President Obama signed in the fall of 2010 outlawing the use of “mental retardation” in federal statute. The law, known as “Rosa’s Law,” requires the use of the phrase, “intellectual disability.” The law bolsters McGovern’s belief in her request.

Trisha McGovern wants people to promise not to use “the R word” -- retarded -- when referring to people with autism or other intellectual disabilities. agnosed when she was 4. Her mother and doctors noticed the signs, including Trisha avoiding eye contact with others. She and her mom moved from Burnsville to Belle Plaine when Trisha was in first grade. It’s that early detection and support from family that has helped McGovern thrive within her

classes. Years ago, McGovern wouldn’t have the temerity to ask people to sign such a pledge. Along with help in school and at home, she owes much of her confidence to Special Olympics. Mc-

Longtime Ambulance Fund Dispute May be Resolved Soon

It appears that an issue that dates back over two years may be resolved within the next week. According to Belle Plaine City Administrator David Murphy, the city and area township officials, as well as legal representation for both sides, have reached a tentative agreement on solving the dispute regarding the ambulance fund issue. The latest “closed” session on the matter was held last Tuesday night. Murphy said another closed session will be held following next Monday night’s regular city council meeting, after which the council could approve the agreement. After both sides finalize it, all the details within will become public record. Murphy, citing attorney-client privilege, said he could not comment on any of the details Early Diagnosis McGovern’s autism was di- outlined in the tentative agreement at this time.

The issue centers around $613,786 that was left in the local ambulance fund when Ridgeview Medical Center took over the Belle Plaine Ambulance Service in January of 2008. After that, Murphy said the city no longer operated the ambulance “201 fund,” which prior to 2008 was used as working capital for local ambulance services. Murphy said the $613,786 (the amount at yearend 2009) was transferred to the public safety capital fund of the city’s general fund. The city council, by resolution, approved the transfer of the money on March 1, 2010. Included in that resolution was the transfer of $50,000 of the ambulance funds to the park fund for the development of Riverview Park as a memorial for Belle Plaine Ambulance

Ronald Brings Message of Respect to Trinity

BPHS students Allison Stolee, left, Zach Juaire and Samantha Gregory were among those utilizing instruments from the Mayo Clinic in Rochester to transfer their own DNA (from cheek Ronald McDonald and his friends -- Trekker Meritworth (left) and Professor Zibbit -- recently cells) to a test tube/vial in class last week. visited Trinity Lutheran School to present a play about the importance of recognizing differences in people and respecting each other. The group posed with teachers Andrea Hahm, Sam Korth and Lavonne Bratsch and students in kindergarten through fourth grade. The visit was sponsored by the Belle Plaine McDonald’s.

BPHS Science Students Get Hands-On Experience With Equipment from Mayo Belle Plaine High School science teacher Rich Foust attended a one-week class at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester this past summer. It was called molecular biology and genomics for high school teachers. The class involved a full day of lab prep and studies utilizing recent advancements and techniques in the ďŹ eld of biotechnology. “The long term goal of the program is to develop an interactive group of teachers who will incorporate molecular biology and genomics instruction into their classrooms,â€? Foust explained. “By completing this course, and as an instructor at Belle Plaine, I had the opportunity to rent a trailer for three weeks that included all the equipment necessary (enclosed within a trailer) to perform the biotech labs at the school setting.â€? Foust added that the approximate cost of all equipment in the trailer is close to $50,000, which is funded by the low rental fee of $125 for a week-anda-half session. Large donors are sponsors of the program. “While it would be nice to

have some of this tech equipment available at our school, and maybe over time we may be able to slowly add this equipment, renting this trailer is a great way to expose students to the new science techniques and studies,â€? Foust said. “For the students who are planning on continuing their post secondary education in science ďŹ elds, this was a great opportunity to get some basics before continuing at the college level.â€? “Before these labs, I wanted to pursue a career in this ďŹ eld, and after doing this, I want to pursue this career much more,â€? said student Samantha LeMay. “Working with the biotech lab tools and equipment was so much fun and interesting. I would deďŹ nitely do it again.â€? “The gene labs were a rockin’ good time,â€? chipped in Kris Corl. Fellow students Kirstyn Klug and Rachel Feldermann both agreed that “having the biotechnology trailer in the classroom and getting to work hands on with the equipment helped us realize that science is and will continue to be a growing part of future generations.â€?

Some of the labs performed by students included: Micropipetting - students used tools to transfer very small amounts of uids measured in microliters, (5 microliters or 5ul is equivalent to .005 milliliters). Transformation lab - taking the gene that codes for a uorescent protein in a jellyďŹ sh to be inserted into a common bacteria. Making future generations of bacteria glow. DNA necklace - students used their own cheek cells, isolated their DNA, and inserted it into a small capped tube, and made a necklace. Crime scene analysis - students collected DNA from a crime scene, ampliďŹ ed it (made many copies) through a PCR (polymerase chain reaction) machine, and then ran a gel electrophoresis to determine which DNA from several suspects matched the DNA from the crime scene. Mitochondrial DNA analysis - students collected mitochondrial DNA (which is passed down from mother to children) Jarrett Johnson, a sophomore at Belle Plaine Junior-Senior from cheek cells and analyzed High School, said he’d rather have been in school Friday than the results. shovel -- by hand -- the several inches of snow from the end of the driveway on West Main Street.

Area Students Can Continue Their School Work on the Road

Chaska and Chanhassen high schoolers can continue their studies during lengthy road trips now that 25 of the district’s 110 school buses are equipped with secure Wi-Fi. The $13,500 investment will allow students to access the In-

Scott County Offering Raingarden Workshops The Scott Clean Water Education Program will host Blue Thumb Planting for Clean Water Workshops again in 2013 to help residents create their own raingardens and stabilize shorelines with native plants. Raingardens and native shorelines can slow rain water runoff, anchor soil, provide wildlife habitat and filter pollutants from lawns. This program makes it easy for residents interested in doing their part to keep our waters clean to plan, purchase and create raingardens and native shorelines. Following the workshops, residents will have the opportunity to purchase a “Raingarden in a box” kit, depending on the type of garden suitable for their properties. In addition, residents may receive a grant to help offset the costs of creating beautiful gardens with native plants.

Workshops will be held the following dates and locations: – Thursday, Feb. 28, 6:15 p.m. at the Scott County Government Center. – Tuesday, March 5, 6:15 p.m. at the Scott SWCD, Fairgrounds, Jordan. – Thursday, March 14, 6:15 p.m. at the Scott County Government Center. Tuesday, March 26, 6:15 p.m. at the Scott SWCD, Fairgrounds, Jordan. The workshops are free but registration is requested. Contact Diane Hrabe with the Scott Soil and Water District in Jordan to register, (952) 492-5425, or send an e-mail to dhrabe@ co.scott.mn.us. For more information about raingardens, native gardens and stabilizing your shoreline with native plants, visit www.bluethumb.org.

Scott County Relay For Life Team Kick-Off is March 9 Teams interested in participating in the annual Scott County/American Cancer Society Relay for Life should attend a kick-off team rally Saturday, March 9, 10 a.m. to noon, at the Scott County Conference Center, 205 Fourth Avenue W. in Shakopee.

Relay for Life planning committee members will be on hand to answer questions. The relay is set for Friday-Saturday, July 12-13, at Vaughan Field on the Shakopee West Junior High School campus. The American Cancer Society Relay for Life, a nationwide effort, is a unique communitybased event that allows individuals to celebrate the lives of cancer survivors, to remember loved ones lost, and to rally together as one community to fight cancer.

State Fair Seeking Century Farms Minnesota families who have owned their farms for 100 years or more may apply for the 2013 Century Farms Program. Produced by the Minnesota State Fair in conjunction with the Minnesota Farm Bureau Federation, the Century Farms Program was created to promote agriculture and honor historic family farms in the state. Nearly 9,500 Minnesota farms have been honored since the program began in 1976. Family farms are recognized as Century Farms when they meet three requirements. The farm must be: (1) at least 100 years old according to authentic land records; (2) in continuous family ownership for at least 100 years (continuous residence on the farm is not required); and (3) at least 50 acres. A commemorative certificate “REFUSE TO BE VICTIMized”

signed by State Fair Board of Managers President Jim Foss, Minnesota Farm Bureau Federation President Kevin Paap and Gov. Mark Dayton will be awarded to qualifying families, along with an outdoor sign signifying Century Farm status. Applications are available at fbmn.org; by calling the State Fair at 651-288-4400; or at statewide county extension and county Farm Bureau offices. The submission deadline is April 1. Recipients will be announced in May. Previously recognized families should not reapply. Information on all Century Farms will be available at the Minnesota Farm Bureau exhibit during the 2013 Minnesota State Fair, which runs Aug. 22 through Labor Day, Sept. 2. A Century Farm database is also available at fbmn.org. Sesquicentennial Farms Also Sought Minnesota Farm Bureau’s Sesquicentennial Farm program also honors Minnesota families who have owned their farms for at least 150 years. Since the Sesquicentennial Farm program began in 2008, over 150 farms have been recognized. Many of the same criteria that apply for Century Farms also apply to Sesquicentennial Farms.

BELLE PLAINE HERALD, BELLE PLAINE, MINNESOTA

Today, February 27, is the birth anniversary of the American poet, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. He was born in 1807 and died in 1882. Now as your brain starts searching back to your American literature in high school days, let me see if I can help you with a few hints. Titles like “The Song of Hiawatha”, “Paul Revere’s Ride” and “The Village Blacksmith” should ring a bell or two. Many of us know the start of “The Village Blacksmith” form a Rocky and Bullwinkle cartoon. If the latter is your source of knowledge, I have two suggestions for you. One is to go to www.youtube.com and search for “Rocky Bullwinkle Village Blacksmith” and re-live a wonderful cartoon clip from many years ago. The more serious suggestion is to find a good library, like a Scott County Library, and look up the poetry of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. In less than an hour, you can enjoy several pieces of this great American poet’s work. Come visit us at the library and we will help you. You may want to give us some advance notice.. One if by land, and two if by sea. It has worked before. If you are looking for library information, one good Belle Plaine source is put out by our friends over at the Belle Plaine chamber of Commerce. Visit the URL: http://www.belleplainemn.com/ and click on “Residents” then “Public Library” and you will find a nice display of information about your public library. Please consider bookmarking this page as a favorite. There is also a link there that will take you to the main Scott County library site. They make it very convenient. Our Winter Jackets program is winding down this week. Everybody should get their reviews in by Thursday, Feb 28. The group has been active in their reading and we hope their experience will bring them back next year with a few friends in tow. Story-Time will be Friday, March, 1 at 10:30 with a “Weather” theme. Library Hours: Sunday & Monday: Closed Tuesday: 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday 1-8 p.m. Thursday 1-8 p.m Friday: 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday: 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. New Arrivals February 27, 2013 Adult Non-Fiction: The Eve of Destruction How 1965 Transformed America by James T.

Local Band to Perform for Food Shelf Horseplay band members Jack Winders (senior), Luke Dandurand (junior), Aaron Bigaouette (junior) and Jayden Howie (senior) will return to the Belle Plaine Performing Arts Center for a concert to help raise money for the Belle Plaine Food Shelf on Friday, March 8. It will take place from 7:30-10 p.m.

This year, the band will be joined by some talented classmates from Belle Plaine High School for some songs and a chance to showcase their talent for a great cause. Last year’s Horseplay concert raised over $1,100 of the Belle Plaine Food Shelf. Betsy Ollhoff, president of the food

shelf, appreciates the band’s initiative and hopes the night will again be a success in raising donations and a fun night out for the community. All ages are welcome to attend. There is no cover charge. Attendees are simply asked to make a donation at the door. All proceeds will go to the Belle Plaine Food Shelf.

School Board OKs Part-Time Child Care Coordinator Position Hoping to enhance the revenue the Kids Company schoolage child care generates for the school district’s community services department, the school board approved the creation of a part-time coordinator to provided curriculum and oversight for the program. The before- and after-school program averages about 30 children per day, with a few more after school than in the morning, said Nelson Ladd, director of community services. The program runs daily, from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m., with a break while children are in school. Over the past four years, the hourly-rate fee has generated between $54,000 and $69,000 annually, Ladd told the board at a workshop Feb. 11. The program has finished above breakeven by about $7,000 the past four years. “It should be a lot more than that,” he said. Ladd and the board expect by implementing more of a structured curriculum aligned with what elementary children enjoy in schools, the numbers of students will increase. The board OK’d hiring a parttime person, someone who can implement curriculum, oversee the part-time staff and be a consistent presence for interaction with parents. Ladd will post the position in the next week or so. He’s hoping for someone with an elementary education, recreation or early-childhood degree. The

Thirty Years Ago This Week

Early Spring Flooding In what was one of the earliest spring floods ever in this area, the Minnesota River jumped out of its banks in late February into early March. This photo was taken at the Blakeley bridge approach, which is no stranger to flooding. The 1983 flooding was not expected to cause much damage as the river was already in retreat by the end of the first week of March. The Minnesota River jumped out of its banks and was spilling over onto low-lying river bottom land. It was one of the earliest spring flooding on record, resulting from one of the warmest Februaries on record. The normal high water on the Minnesota River is late March or early April. The flooding was not expected to cause much damage. In fact, the river was already receding in Mankato at the start of March. It was announced that building permits issued and the amount of money collected by the city through expansion had dropped in 1982, due mostly to a depressed economy. Fourteen permits for new homes were issued, according to Clerk Larry Thompson. Seven permits for home additions were also given. There were no permits issued for new commercial buildings. The annual meeting of the Belle Plaine Cooperative was set for March 5 at the elementary school. Manager Wilmer Schmidt would be reporting that sales were down 5 percent over the previous year, with totals sales for 1982 being $6,700,000. “The whole agricultural economy was down this past year,� Schmidt said. “Farmers are all cutting back.� There was a big change planned for Belle Plaine’s upcoming St. Patrick’s festivities on March 12. There would not be a guest speaker, but rather all those gathered to celebrate the “wearing o’ the green� would have the opportunity to watch the Saoire Eire Dancers, who would perform traditional Irish dance steps. Ben Murphy, a former Belle Plaine resident, would be among the dancers performing on the platform. A sing-a-long of Irish tunes would be led by Dennis Lehman and Jean Effertz. The BPHS basketball team split its final two regular season games, losing a heartbreaking 65-64 double overtime game to Norwood before bouncing back to blast Le Center 62-32. Kevin Wolpern led the Tigers against Norwood with 20 points. Brent

Meyer took charge against Le Center with 12 points and 20 rebounds. Belle Plaine would be taking a 11-7 record into the District 13 Tournament, with its first-round opponent being archrival Jordan. The Tiger girls’ basketball team advanced to the semifinals of the District 13 Tournament with a 42-30 victory over Cleveland. Sandi Schmidt led Belle Plaine with 15 points, followed by Mary Leonard with nine. Laurie Wolpern grabbed 12 rebounds. The Tigers’ semifinal opponent would be Montgomery. Belle Plaine wrestler Ed Fogarty was on his way to the state wrestling tournament after earning the runner-up title in the 119-pound class at the regional meet at Inver Hills. Ed, a junior, was the first Belle Plaine matman in five years to qualify for state. The state tourney would take place that Thursday through Saturday at the St. Paul Civic Center.

60 Years Ago (1953)

Residents of Cedar Lake Township were running for cover when a 19-year-old Minneapolis youth consumed too much alcohol and went berserk. He had gone to several farm homes and threatened to kill the occupants. The youth later surrendered to Sheriff Schroeder and was locked up in the Carver County Jail. At a special meeting of the voters of Zion Church, Benton Township, the architect presented detailed plans of the proposed new structure. The congregation voted to accept the plans and to advertise for bids. Mrs. George P. O’Connor died at her home in St. Paul. She was the daughter of Mrs. Emma Clifford of Le Center and the late Patrick Clifford. She was in her 50s. The funeral of Fred C. Mechtel was held in St. Paul with services at Holy Spirit Catholic Church. Mr. Mechtel had

two brothers in Belle Plaine, J.B. and Al Mechtel, and many friends who were most grieved to hear of his sudden death. Death came most unexpectedly to Ben Herrmann, renter of the John C. Latzke farm. He was taken sick and before a doctor could arrive he passed away. He was 35 years old. Mrs. Elmer Wolf and her neighbor, Mrs. Frank M. Dietz, held a joint birthday party at the former’s home. In Belle Plaine Township only present officials filed for office. They were supervisor E.A. Edberg, Treasurer Tony Schultz and Assessor E.E. Schultz. Henry Heintz, a native of Henderson and brother of Ed Heintz, passed away very suddenly following a heart attack. He was 60 years of age. A surprise party was carried out at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Herbst on the occasion of his birthday. Ferdinand Wilhelm Heinrich Engfer, formerly of Belle Plaine, died at his home in Parkers Prairie at the age of 96. Mrs. Pearl Daniels was pleasantly surprised when a group of ladies, relatives and friends gathered to help her celebrate her birthday. St. Peter, defending District 13 champion, snuffed out Belle Plaine’s basketball candle that had glowed with brilliance at times but went dim as time elapsed in the quarterfinals of the district tournament in St. Peter. The Tigers were sent out of the tourney on a low-scoring 38-31 decision. Pete Johnson and Tom Melchior were top scores for Belle Plaine with eight points each.

The borough council was considering installing a municipal weighing scale. Mrs. Fred Laabs Sr. died after a short illness at age 58. The funeral was held from Redeemer Church. The day after nearly all local people had paid their personal property taxes, word came that another month’s grace would be allowed. The Legislature bungled the tax deferment bill, and a correct statement of the law was not forthcoming until too late to be of benefit. Mrs. Ann Moreaw of Edmonton, Alberta, came for a visit with her uncle and aunt, Mr. and Mrs. P.A. Colbert at Assumption. Gustave Nitz, a resident of

Belle Plaine for 34 years, died at age 66. The funeral was held from St. John’s Lutheran Church. The county boards of Scott and Sibley agreed to finance the proposed Blakeley bridge to the extent of $15,000 each. Adjacent townships were in favor of voting a levy for the project also. The engineer’s estimate of the cost of the bridge was $50,000. Adam Brandl, 66, died at the hospital in St. Paul, and the funeral was held from Sts. Peter and Paul Church. All his lifetime was spent on farms in this locality. Two dozen prohibition enforcement agents got off a train in Sibley County and divided up for raids on Gaylord, Green Isle and Arlington. Every soft drink establishment in the towns was thoroughly searched. The oldest resident in Belle Plaine was Fred Falkenberg, 94, who made his home with his nephew, William Kruschke. At Pomona, Calif., occurred the death of Dr. A.W. Daniels, 94, whose remains were brought to his old home at St. Peter for burial. For many years he was on call as a consultant with Belle Plaine doctors. The New Prague Milling Co. was making ready to establish headquarters in Minneapolis, moving 60 of its office force at New Prague to the city. Art Chard purchased the farm of Frank Kulisheck, who moved to Jordan. The school board reengaged Supt. Gilbertson at a salary of $2,400 for the ensuing term. In the school’s declamatory contest, first places went to Clarence Pearson and Grace Christenson. Mrs. J.W. Frank of Belle Plaine Township was elected a member of the executive committee of the Scott County Farm Bureau. John Barry, adopted son of William Dunn, came back from St. Paul to become associated with Art Splettstoesser in operation of the Belle Plaine Garage.

120 Years Ago (1893)

High water fears began to prevail. The heavy snow started to thaw. James Boland, Faxon pioneer, died at age 77. Burial was at Jessenland. The Widow Holste’s family had general sympathy. Within three weeks a son and daughter died, and three of the remaining children were very sick. The father died the year before. They inaugurated the president on March 4 and Grover Cleveland’s second term was ushered in with an elaborate ceremony.

Woodard, Dahle Hosting Town Meetings March 9

Belle Plaine’s two state representatives – Rep. Kelby Woodard and Sen. Kevin Dahle – are hosting a series of two town meetings March 9. Woodard, a Republican, and Dahle, a DFLer, will be at the Belle Plaine Library on West Main Street at 10 a.m. to dis-

cuss state legislative issues. The pair will meet with residents for about an hour before leaving for similar meetings at the Le Sueur Public Library at 11:30 a.m., Le Center City Hall at 1 p.m. and Northfield Public Library at 3 p.m.

Sign Up Now for Garden Fever It’s time to Think Spring and the Carver-Scott Master Gardeners are again presenting GARDEN FEVER! Join us for a day filled with education and fun, on Saturday, April 6 from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. This year the featured speaker is award-winning landscape designer and author Julie Moir Messervy, who designed the Toronto Waterfront Music Garden. Her presentation will demystify the art and practice of landscape design for homeowners and professionals alike. Using beautiful images, together with helpful tips, case studies, befores and afters, diagrams and plans, Julie walks you through the process of turning any property into the “home outside� that you’ve always dreamed of. She highlights many of the ideas introduced in her book, “Home Outside: Creating the Landscape You

Love,� illustrating that good landscape design does not have to be overwhelming or expensive. A book signing will follow the lecture. Held at the Oak Ridge Conference Center, 1 Oakridge Drive in Chaska, Garden Fever also includes workshops on Fairy Gardens, Native Plants, Espalier, Train Gardens, Ornamental Grasses, Underplanted Vegetables, Design Your Own Water Garden, Trees and Shrubs, and Container Design. Registration includes a continental breakfast, lunch, door prizes, silent auction, commercial vendors, educational exhibits and the book signing. The cost is $49 through March 15 and $59 thereafter. Registration ends March 23. Books are available for pre-purchase with registration for $30. Register online at www.carverscottmastergardeners.org or call the Extension Office at 952-466-5300 for a brochure.

New Prague Expects It Will be Looking for Conference Home With Farmington High School leaving the Missota Conference and Shakopee on the way out, too, New Prague High School expects the days of the conference will soon be “a thing of the past� after the 2013-14 school year, according to Activities Director Brad Skogerboe. In addition to Farmington and Shakopee leaving the Missota, Chaska and Chanhassen high schools will be forming a conference of southwest metro area schools. That leaves New Prague, Holy Angels, Northfield and Red Wing holding the bag, the New Prague Times recently reported. Skogerboe was working on a plan to save the Missota that would have had east metro schools – South. St. Paul, Simley and Henry Sibley -- leaving the Classic Suburban for the Missota. However, the plan fell apart. His next plan is for the New Prague Area School Board to decide whether the Trojans should turn their focus south to the Big Nine or north and seek membership in the new conference Chaska and Chanhassen are forming. Red Wing has already applied to the Big Nine and Northfield is

expected to apply as well. The Big Nine has 10 schools in south central and southeastern Minnesota. Rochester Mayo is its biggest member with 1,500plus students compared to New Prague at 1,100-plus students. A trip to Big Nine member Faribault is 35 miles away. A conference clash with Winona is a 120mile drive, the Times reported. The new conference has seven refugees from the Missota, North Suburban, South Suburban and Classic Suburban. An eighth team could be added in the conference’s second year. New Prague coaches are reportedly split on their two best options, Big Nine or new conference. The new conference offers metro area exposure and shorter travel. Its disadvantages include reduced emphasis on the arts and some of the schools not having wrestling or gymnastics teams, Skogerboe reportedly said there is no guarantee either conference would accept the Trojans. He wants to have conference membership for 2014-15 solidified soon. If three conferences reject New Prague, the Trojans could apply to the Minnesota State High School League for placement in a conference.

Govern is a member of the TriCounty Chargers and competes with other Special Olympians from Chaska in Carver County and Montgomery in Le Sueur County. She also participates with athletes from the Wizardz, a more recently formed team from Belle Plaine and Jordan. McGovern has a leadership role on the Special Olympics Youth Activation Committee (YAC). YAC is comprised of high school and college students with and without intellectual disabilities who work throughout the school year on presenting Special Olympics Minnesota as a movement for change, inclusion, and acceptance. The soft-spoken McGovern won’t let autism define who she is. “If you see me as just an autistic girl, you don’t know me,� she said. “I’m an athlete, an artist and a student who works hard.� In local and state-level Special Olympics competitions, McGovern has won bronze, silver and gold medals in her favorite sports – track, swimming and equestrian. She is hoping to perform well enough on the track and in the pool at the 2013 Minnesota Special Olympics to earn a spot in the national competition in Los Angeles. McGovern’s goal with the campaign to end the use of the R word is to make more people aware. She doesn’t hear it used in the school and hopes she never does. Much of the credit to that is because Belle Plaine mainstreams its special education students as often as possible, said Carey Piampiano, a special education teacher who works with McGovern and other special ed. students. “Trisha is such a fantastic student,� Piampiano said. “She’s a hard-working person who advocates for herself. That’s something many students with autism don’t have the ability to do.� Piampiano has seen McGovern’s confidence grow as she excels in Special Olympics and becomes more involved with its YAC. She said McGovern’s confidence has risen to a point where’s she’s able to write well thought-put papers in a sophomore English class. “She’s kickin’ butt in that class,� she said. “Trisha’s just a fantastic student.�

also took a dive last year. Police received 42 reports of damage to property in 2012. In 2011, patrol officers responded to 76 vandalism calls. Theft was also reported less in 2012 than the previous year. The department received 105 theft reports last year, 28 fewer than in 2011 and well below the three-year average of 125. The theft reports include dozens of cases of credit/debit card fraud. Reports of fraud dropped dramatically in 2012. Police handled only nine cases last year, down from 21 in 2011. They suspect a credit/debit card processing firm outside of Belle Plaine. The case has been turned over to the U.S. Secret Service for further investigation. A more vigilant public, residents taking better care of their property and police solving outstanding cases is credited with the reductions, said Belle Plaine Police Chief Tom Stolee. But there are some numbers that increased. DWIs were up slightly in 2012. Police arrested 43 drunk drivers, many passing through Belle Plaine on Highway 169. In 2011, Belle Plaine police arrested 39 drunk drivers. Drug-related arrests were up slightly last year. The city arrested 47 people for possession of drugs, two more than in 2011. Reports of harassment on a criminal level almost doubled

(continued from page 1) DFL-Northfield, authored. It would expedite the timing of the buy the farm process and make it much more landowner friendly. Rep. Kelby Woodard, R-Belle Plaine, is conceptually supportive of the bill as it begins the committee process before reaching the House floor. The bill they authored requires utilities to pay their relocation costs and provide minimal compensation to landowners - additional money that would cover the difference between the property they’re leaving and an equivalent property in the community. “My sense is there’s a lack of equality and fairness,� Bly said. The bill is designed to make farmers who don’t want to raise herds near a high-voltage power line financially whole. “My heart goes out to them. This is going to completely change their lives. They should be taken care of.� Area landowners, including Scott Morrison of Faxon Township in Sibley County and Dave Minar of Helena Township in Scott County recently attended the meeting before the House Energy Policy Committee on the impact of the transmission line and its towers will have on their farms. Krass is concerned farmers who ultimately elect to have CapX acquire their farms may not have a farm to move to, given the current market for agricultural land and the cost of moving an operation. “The moving expenses are horrendous,� he said. Bly and Dahle believe they have bipartisan support from the DFL-controlled House and Senate. They expect passage before lawmakers adjourn this spring. The bill in its current form says it becomes enacted immediately. As one who helped write the bill, Krass isn’t quite as confident. He’s concerned about the impact Xcel Energy’s team of lobbyists could have on the bill. Those two issues – relocation costs and minimal compensation – are at the crux of a case before the Minnesota Supreme Court. A district court sided with a farmer affected by CapX’s Fargo-to-Monticello transmission line. The state appeals court sided with CapX, noting that landowners elected to move. “But landowners feel is wasn’t voluntary. They’d rather you (CapX) hadn’t shown up,� Krass said. A ruling in favor of landowners would “change the game,� Lesher said. CapX contends the bill Bly and Dahle authored will potentially usurp the court’s ruling due this summer and will add “another layer of complexity� and delays to a process many landowners find painfully slow. “If we have to deal with it, we have to deal with it,� Lesher said. “We’ve heard the 1970s legislation was in-artfully written,� said Randy Fordice, a spokesperson for CapX 2020. Krass believes the court ruling on relocation costs and minimum compensation may not address all the issues landowners face. He said the Bly-Dahle bill “makes it crystal clear.�

Congratulations to our Scott West wrestlers who have qualified for the Individual State Wrestling Tournament this coming Thursday thru Saturday in St. Paul. Although our streak of team qualifications for the state meet came to an end, five individual Panther wrestlers did qualify for the tournament. Representing Scott West will be David Flynn (113), Zach Siegle (126), Jake Weierke (132), Luke Zilverberg (138) and Andrew Fogarty (160). Congratulations to all of you and good luck at the State Meet! As I write this column, our girl’s basketball team is preparing to play Tri-City United in the opening game of the Sub-Section Tournament at Belle Plaine High School on Tuesday night at 7 p.m. If the Tigers are successful in their first round game, they will advance to play the winner of the Kenyon-Wanamingo and LeSueur-Henderson contest on Friday night at 8 p.m. at Northfield High School. Good luck Tigers! The Common Core Standards were a major topic at a recent conference that I attended and I thought it might be a good time to provide an update on where Minnesota is at with regard to the Common Core Standards. In 2010, Minnesota approved the national Common Core Standards for English Language Arts to be implemented in schools by the 2012-13 school year. Minnesota also looked at the Common Core Standards for Mathematics but has declined to adopt them at this time. At this time the MN Department of Education standards experts believe that current Minnesota Math standards exceed the rigor of the national Common Core Standards. The Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts & Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects (“the Standards�) are the culmination of an extended, broad-based effort to fulfill the charge issued by the states to create the next generation of K–12 standards in order to help ensure that all students are college and career ready in literacy no later than the end of high school. The Standards are intended to be a living work: as new and better evidence emerges, the Standards will be revised accordingly. In Minnesota, the K-12 standards address viewing and media literacy, in addition to the standards in reading, writing, speaking, listening, and language. As a natural outgrowth of meeting the charge to define college and career readiness, the Standards also lay out a vision of what it means to be a literate person in the twenty-first century. Indeed, the skills and understandings students are expected to demonstrate have wide applicability outside the classroom or workplace. Students who meet the Standards readily undertake the close, attentive reading that is at the heart of understanding and enjoying complex works of literature. They habitually perform the critical reading necessary to pick carefully through the staggering amount of information available today in print and digitally. They actively seek the wide, deep, and thoughtful engagement with high-quality literary and informational texts that builds knowledge, enlarges experience, and broadens worldviews. They reflexively demonstrate the cogent reasoning and use of evidence that is essential to both private deliberation and responsible citizenship in a democratic republic. In short, students who meet the Standards develop the skills in reading, writing, speaking, and listening that are the foundation for any creative and purposeful expression in language. 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!

City Council (continued from page 1) such as the Belle Plaine Vet Clinic, Prairie Farm Supply and The Country Store will be invited to attend and possibly have display tables available. It’s also possible that representatives from the police department will be there to provide licensing services for dogs. *Unanimously approved a charitable gambling premises permit for the German Days Committee at Andy’s Bar and Grill downtown. That official action came after the council on Feb. 4 voted to direct staff to “prepare” a resolution to approve the committee’s request for the permit. According to the application, the charitable gambling proceeds will be used as follows: –$1,000 to Austin Overline to help cover expenses associated with his medical condition. – Fifty percent of the finds will go to town festivals, most notably St. Patrick’s Day and German Days, including queen scholarships, etc. – The rest of the proceeds will go to donations to Belle Plaine schools, Dollars for Scholars and occasional lawful purpose donations when needs arise. *Unanimously authorized the advertisement of bids for the city’s 2013 seal coat project, for which $85,000 has been budgeted. A map highlighting the streets that are proposed to be seal coated this year is available at city hall. *Unanimously approved a resolution authorizing a new home building incentive program similar to the one initiated in 2012. The city’s HRA (Housing and Redevelopment Authority) recently met and reviewed the proposed incentives that include the waiving of building permit and plan review fees for certain new home construction in 2013. The waived fees will apply to the following: (1) The new single-family homes shall be constructed in existing, platted subdivisions. (2) The subject homes shall be owner-occupied, or be owneroccupied when sold by the builder. (3) After closing on the sale of an existing spec home, in which the building permit and plan reviews fees were waived, the contractor may have the same fees waived for subsequent single-family homes, contingent upon the builder not having more than two unsold spec homes. (4) The maximum number of single-family homes allowed under this program is 10. *Unanimously approved the preliminary plat for Valley Business Park Second Addition south of Highway 169, which includes the public works facility site. The plan includes a future driveway from County Road 7 to public works, which is currently accessed from Diversified Drive. Fencing around the facility is also planned. The concept plan for this proposal was approved in December. The final plat will be addressed in March. *Voted 4-0 (Pingalore abstaining) to award the bid for graphic design and printing services to Lime Valley of Mankato. The other bid finalist was Curtis 1000 of Mankato (Michael Pingalore and Dave Brieter). Lime Valley will perform

graphic design and printing services as part of the city’s new economic development marketing plan. The cost is not to exceed $10,000. The city was recently awarded a $15,000 grant from the Scott County Community Development Agency to be used on economic development and marketing activities. This grant will be used to pay for the graphic design and printing services that were awarded to Lime Valley. *Unanimously approved a change to the city ordinance pertaining to criminal history background checks for city employees. The city had already used background checks in the past but Police Chief Tom Stolee reported that the current ordinance does not meet what will be heightened requirements in the near future, and that amended one will. *Unanimously approved the

renewal of joint power agreements between the city and Belle Plaine School District. The agreements annually (sometimes biannually) identify the use and responsibility of ball fields and other public facilities that are jointly used by the city and district. *As a way of promoting economic development, Mayor Mike Pingalore plans to acknowledge local businesses on a regular basis at council meetings. Last Tuesday night, the featured business was ATA Karate of Belle Plaine. Pingalore presented five youth, two adults and karate instructor Karl Knight with Belle Plaine logo pins for their recent accomplishments in martial arts. The next regular meeting of the Belle Plaine City Council is scheduled for 6 p.m. Monday, March 4 in the City Hall building at 218 North Meridian Street downtown.

Still Time to Sign Up to be a Queen Candidate

Belle Plaine High School senior girls of Irish descent interested in becoming a Miss Shamrock candidate can still sign up at the school office. The grand marshals of this year’s parade will be Pat and Bonnie Skelley.

Next Phase of Cambria Project Won’t Require More Review the 395,000-square-foot expansion does not require significant mitigation studied in an environmental impact statement (EIS), the Le Sueur News-Herald recently reported. An EIS is a much more detailed, lengthy and costly study. Since the expansion could trig-

ger more traffic near the plant in Le Sueur on Highway 169, Cambria will perform a traffic study to determine if an acceleration lane on the northbound side of the highway is needed.

Jordan School Board OKs Investment in More Technology

Multiple sclerosis not only affects the person with the disease but their loved ones as well. The MS support group provides a setting for those whose lives are touched by multiple sclerosis to connect with others while engaging in lively discussion and gaining valuable information. The next meeting will be held on Tuesday, March 5 from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. in the Solarium at Mayo Clinic Health System in New Prague. Pre-registration is appreciated. For more information, call the Mayo Clinic Health System in New Prague Public Affairs Department at 952-758-8956.

The second phase of Cambria’s environmental review won’t trigger additional environmental review, according to the Le Sueur City Council. The council recently reviewed the plan in an environmental assessment worksheet (EAW) and determined the second phase of

The Jordan School Board recently approved an upgrade to its commitment to technology in its three public schools, increasing its funding to $234,000. The investment includes wireless Internet access in schools and iPads for students, the Jordan Independent recently reported. Jordan Elementary School Principals Stacy DeCorsey and Lance Chambers, principal of the middle school, endorsed the plan as a way to give students the tools they need to succeed academically. DeCorsey noted other area

districts, including Belle Plaine, have had wireless Internet service in public schools for years. Chambers said Jordan students should have the same access to technology others area students enjoy. Jordan High School Principal Barb McNulty noted the district’s students likely have greater access to technology and the Internet in their homes than they do in schools. With possible renovations to the Jordan School District’s middle school on the horizon, the district plans to remove any equipment in the middle school to protect its investment.

The letter went on to explain that the contract requires Coborn’s to create at least 25 fulltime jobs at wages no less than 175 percent of the federal minimum wage, which for calender year 2012 was $12.70 per hour, excluding benefits; and at least 88 part-time jobs with wages no less than the 2012 federal minimum wage of $7.25 per hour, excluding benefits. According to Murphy, Coborn’s recently provided job information that indicated that the store met its part-time job and wage goals, but was five

Cologne Gets Good News on its Bills Members of the Cologne City Council knew the process of hiring a new city administrator would come with a price tag. Last week, the council received bills from its consultant councilors didn’t expect or even know about. But the request for payment was withdrawn after the council rejected the bills. As it starts the process of hiring a city administrator anew following the council’s unanimous decision to rescind its offer to John Meyer earlier this month, Mayor Matt Lein reported to the council at its meeting Feb. 19 the city received over $3,300 in bills from Springsted, the consulting firm that helped with the processing of resumes, the selection of finalists and negotiations with Meyer. Lein told the council $2,000 worth of bills was for “additional services.� He said former Mayor Bernie Shambour OK’d the additional services during November and December because the city had exceeded its initial contract with Springsted. Because Shambour OK’d the additional services via e-mail, the council won’t dispute the claim. What caught councilors off guard was a $1,135 bill from Springsted’s Sharon Klumpp, a senior vice president. It included a $600 charge for Klumpp to attend a meeting Jan. 3. The council interviewed one of the two finalists and then discussed both his qualifications before decided to offer the job to Meyer. “It couldn’t have lasted more than a couple of hours,� Lein said. The bill included an additional $500 for “additional negotia-

tions,� $178 for mileage and $65 to contact the unsuccessful candidates for the city administrator position. “I hate it when vendors come back (with additional bills),� Lein told the council. Councilor Jill Skaaland said she expected the entire hiring process would cost about $4,000. “You don’t just blind side somebody like that,� said Councilor Jeff McGinnis. The council unanimously balked at the idea of paying the bill. After Lein delivered the council’s sentiment, Klumpp backed off the request. “She never did say why,� Lein said. “I am guessing that she knew she was in the wrong with trying to bill us after the fact. I guess the why doesn’t really concern me. She did remove that portion and we are a satisfied customer because of that.�

Administrator Update

The council received 17 applicants for the administrator’s job. Lein and Skaaland narrowed the field to six. They will identify three or four finalists for the job based on responses to a series of written queries due yesterday (Feb. 26), Lein said. The city will invite the finalists in for interviews with the full city council during the first two weeks in March, Lein said. All six of the semi-finalists are from Minnesota. Two currently work for municipalities in the state and four have previous public-sector experience, Lein said.

Chemical Costs

More good news on bills arrived at the Feb. 19 meeting when Cologne’s re-bidding of chemicals for the city’s water plant cut the cost of chemicals in half. Jeff Wildung reported the new price on the cost for chemicals in January dropped from $1,700 to less than $750 from the same

vendor, Hawkins Chemical of St. Paul. The big difference for the savings is the rebidding of chemicals and the manner in which chemicals and services are now billed. Previously, the city received one amount for both. Now, Cologne gets one price for chemicals and another for services. Because Cologne only buys chemicals and contracts for water plant operator services from Watertown jointly with Norwood Young America, it immediately saw the savings. “It’s huge,� Lein said. “Over the long haul, it’ll be more than half because we’re more efficient.� In other action at its meeting Feb. 19, the Cologne City Council: n Paid bills totaling $39,961.98. n Discussed a request from M & M Construction on the city’s interest in selling land and a shed adjacent to Fritz Field, vacation of an alleyway and possible rerouting of a city sewer line to make way for a commercial development. n Granted a request from the Cologne Leos Club for no-cost use of Louis Hall.

I’m cursed as a phantom, you make me so proud.

by Dan Ruud After reviewing a report from city staff, the Belle Plaine City Council last Tuesday night approved a reduction of the tax abatement payable to Coborn’s Superstore in Belle Plaine, and execution of a new pay-as-yougo note in the reduced amount. In a contract dated May 14, 2010, Coborn’s agreed to construct, own and operate a 38,000-square-foot building, including a full-service grocery store at its site located near Highway 169 in Belle Plaine. In exchange, the city agreed to conditionally issue Coborn’s a note in the amount of $243,580. However, that amount was eventually reduced to $202,810 because the cost to construct the building was less than origi-

Because five of the 25 full-time jobs required by the contract have not been created, we have reduced the note by $8,923.64,� stated the city’s letter. Murphy said Coborn’s is not disputing the abatement reduction. Other than the first abatement reduction due to lower construction costs, Murphy said the 20 full-time employees instead of 25 is the only obligation Coborn’s has not met in the tax abatement contract.

Belle Plaine Gets No. 3 Seed The Belle Plaine High School girls’ basketball team opened the Section 2AA, North Subsection Tournament at home against Tri-City United Tuesday night after this edition of the Herald went to press. The Tigers (9-15) were the No. 3 seed and the Titans (5-21) were seeded sixth. Belle Plaine had beaten TCU twice during the regular season, both times by 23 points or more. Barring a big upset last night, the Tigers will head to Northfield High School to square off against No. 2 seed KenyonWanamingo (18-8) 8 p.m. this Friday. Kenyon-Wanamingo hosted No. 7 seed Le SueurHenderson (1-23) Tuesday night. Belle Plaine and K-W met once during the regular season, with the Knights winning 69-52 in Belle Plaine on Jan. 25. The other North Subsection first-round match-up Tuesday night had No. 4 seed Sibley East (9-15) at home against No. 5 Waterville-Elysian-Morristown (10-15). The winner

of that game will take on No. 2 seed St. Peter (19-5) in this Friday’s 6 p.m. quarterfinal at Northfield. The Saints received a first-round bye.

NRHEG, the top seed, hosted No. 8 seed Maple River (4-22) in Tuesday night’s quarterfinals. The other South Subsection quarterfinals Tuesday had No. 5 United South Central (15-10)

B.P. Traveling Fastpitch Sign Up Boys’ Basketball The Belle Plaine Fastpitch Association (BPFA) is sponsoring traveling fastpitch teams to play in the Suburban League. We are looking to form teams at the following age groups: 10 and under (10U), 12 and under (12U), 14 and under (14U), 16 and under (16U), and 18 and under (18U). The Suburban League games are played against teams from around the metro area on two different week nights.

Teams at the older age levels also stress fundamentals, but

add more game strategy and advanced skills. Teams are limited to 12-14 players. If you are interested in playing more competitive ball, are available on two week nights from May through July and weekends for tournaments, then traveling fastpitch may be for you.

score bonus points where we are supposed to and don’t give up bonus points,” Flynn said. “Every kid wrestles hard and does their job. I’m very proud of this team and the efforts they give. It was a great day for Scott West Wrestling.” The Panther Cubs will be in action this Sunday at Shakopee High School for the MNUSA State Dual Championships.

(continued from page 19) Weierke placed second in his bracket at 132. It was Weierke scoring the biggest win of his career in semifinal action as the senior wrestled his way to a 2-0 upset win over Aaron Sweeney of WatertownMayer, who had beaten Weierke 7-0 earlier in the year at the Minnesota Christmas Tournament. After a scoreless first period, Weierke put a hard ride on his Royal opponent that left the match tied going into the third period, where the Panther wrestler would come out the back door for the winning reversal. Although Weierke would lose by fall to Waconia’s Jacob Steinbauer in the finals, he was in the front door to the state tournament as Sweeney came back to win two matches and take third place, which eliminated the possibility of a true second wrestle back match. Weierke will take his 25-14 record to the Xcel Energy Center with a first-round match against the 26-12 Riley Roth of Marshall/Lakeview. After pinning his first two opponents of the tournament, David Flynn used a reversal, a hard snap down shuck by take down and some hard riding to win his championship match at 113 pounds over St. Peter’s Chris Pettis 4-0. “David has had a very good year thus far,” states Ripley. “He now has the opportunity to take it to the next level at the state tournament.” Flynn will take his 37-4 record to state with a first-round match against the 29-6 Ray Hoffman of Milaca/Faith Christian. After beating Delano’s Connor Dalbec 13-2 to advance to the championship finals at 126, Zach Siegle would win his first Section 2AA title with a hard-fought 3-0 win over New Prague’s James Berg. After a scoreless first period, Siegle

scored a quick escape and then hit the Trojan wrestler with his super duck single leg for a three-point lead and a ride out win in the third period. “That was one slick take down by Zach,” insists Ripley. “Hopefully, we will see some more of those at the state tournament.” Siegle will take his 32-5 record to state with a first-round match against the 33-7 Reid Johnson from North Branch. After pinning his first two opponents of the tournament to advance to the finals at 138, Luke Zilverberg would storm back to better Tri-City United’s two-time returning state placewinner Mason Brownlee to win the title. Trailing 2-0 after the first period, Zilverberg used a big second period as he scored five points on an escape, take down and two-point near fall. Taking a 5-2 lead into the third period, Zilverberg would ice the match with a slide by shuck take down. “Luke wrestled extremely well in periods two and three,” comments Ripley. “He can have a big state tournament if he puts three periods together like that match after match.” Zilverberg will take his 38-4 record to Xcel Energy Center with a first-round match against the 19-8 Kirby Winson of Quad County. After pinning his first two opponents of the tournament to advance to the finals at 160, Andrew Fogarty found an opportunity to avenge a varsity loss that dated back to his eighth grade year when he lost to Hutchinson’s Chris Schmidt 7-2. Now, a sophomore, Fogarty used a couple of take downs and an escape to win the championship match 5-2 in his customary trademark workman-like fashion over the Tiger wrestler. “It was a solid win by Andrew,” states Ripley. “And it is solid wrestling like that that will win matches at the state tournament.” Fogarty will take his 36-3 record to state with a first-round match against the 27-10 Kez Flomo of Totino-Grace. It appeared Scott West might advance six wrestlers into the championship round as Derek Dahlke overpowered St. Peter’s Dylan Connor to his back for a 4-0 first period lead in their semifinal match at 170. With Dahlke ahead 6-3 in the second period, Connor scored a controversial go-behind take down on the edge of the mat, where it appeared he never got fully behind Dahlke to gain control for the two points awarded by the referee. After the two wrestlers were called off the mat, Dahlke attempted a stand up on the restart, and when he did not secure hand control, Connor locked him up and took him to his back with a cradle and an ensuing pin fall call. “I hate to see a very important match turn on a controversial call and that is certainly what happened here,” states Ripley. “Derek had a great year of wrestling and put himself into

a good opportunity of going to state and it just didn’t happen.” Dahlke ended up placing fourth in the tournament and finished his junior season with a 27-7 record. Scott West had three other fourth place finishers in the tournament. Included were Ben Kelvington (106), Jake Schultz (182) and Ray Carter (195). Kelvington would score a big 20-3 technical fall quarterfinal win over Hutchinson’s Dylan Pundsac. Kelvington finished his freshman year with a 23-17 record. “Ben had a solid year of wrestling,” states Ripley. “He finished with a good tournament here and we will look forward to continued improvement from him over the next three years.” Two wrestlers that really improved for Scott West this year were junior upper weights named Jake Schultz and Carter. Schultz also scored a big quarterfinal win as he won 5-4 over St. Peter’s Kyle Bosacker as he went on to place fourth in the tournament at 182. Schultz finished the year with a 22-15 record. “Jake really made a lot of improvement throughout the year,” suggests Ripley. “He really wrestled well late in the year and we are looking forward to more of that improvement next year.” Also wrestling very well late in the season was Carter as he turned in a fourth place performance in what was possibly the toughest weight class in the tournament. Carter showed his mettle as he defeated two wrestlers that had beaten him during the regular season. The first would come against Watertown-Mayer’s Nick Burns as Carter used three take downs to score a 7-2 win over the Royal wrestler that had defeated him 5-3 earlier. In the consolation semifinals, Carter did it again as he broke a third period 44 tie with a third period take down and a 6-4 lead over New Prague’s Cody Sirek, who injury defaulted the match at that point. Sirek had beaten Carter earlier in the year 5-0. “We were really proud of how Ray Carter wrestled in this tournament and turning two match losses is testament to that,” insists Ripley. “We are excited about Ray’s year of wrestling and look forward to his continued progress going into next year.” Carter finished the year with a 19-18 record. It was a sixth place finish for Jack Storlie as he won a couple of matches at 152 with a 4-3 victory over Hutchinson’s Ethan Link to nail down the placing. “Jack scored a couple of good victories,” states Ripley. “It was a good end of the year for him to get in there and get sixth place.” Jacob Backlund (120), Shane Abraham (145), Willie Staple III (220) and Josiah Schatz (HWT) competed for Scott West in the tournament and did not place in the top six of their weight classes.

Inaugural Hockey Event A Success The Belle Plaine hockey rink was the site of a pond rules hockey tournament Saturday. The double-elimination event, which featured 10 teams, began shortly before 1 p.m. and ended at about 11:30 p.m. Tournament organizer Johnny Egan of Belle Plaine said he was very pleased with the interest the tournament drew, from the number of teams that played and the fans that attended. Among those fans, above, were Egan’s mother Pam and sister Bridget. Seated between them is friend Jenna Seaver. Pictured in the upper right photo is Tony Scherer scoring a goal in his team’s (Bash Bros.) earlyround victory. Among those joining Scherer on the team (not pictured) were his sons Tyler, Jake and Luke. Pictured in the lower right photo is one of the tournament’s younger players waiting for his next turn on the ice. Egan said he plans to make the tournament an annual event, adding that he thanks Belle Plaine Community Services, the city, Coborn’s, Annie’s Cafe and others for their support. Winning the championship was a team from Savage called The Savages.

BPHS Woodworking Students Making Something Old New Again

Learning from an Expert Award-winning Minnesota author William Durbin recently visited Oak Crest Elementary School and talked with students about writing and the importance of reading. Durbin told sixth-graders he spends up to two years researching a book and then about a year writing and working with his editors on revisions to the books. Students read copies of Durbin’s books before he arrived and then were able to ask him questions about his work. He autographed copies of his books for students before leaving.

Earlier this year, Joe Deutsch had an idea for the students in his woodworking class. It offered students a break from work on their yearlong projects while learning lessons about reusing what is available. Deutsch is an industrial arts teacher at Belle Plaine JuniorSenior High School. He recently assigned his students to find old wood – the older the better – and use it to make a coat rack or some other usable piece. The results have been a pleasant surprise. From old barn wood to wood from a house abandoned long ago to wood from an old pallet, Deutsch and his students are using it all. He calls it “re-purposing” of wood and a chance to help students learn about the impacts humans have on the environment. “Going green, it’s a huge part of their future and our duty as educators to include that environmental piece every day wherever you can,” Deutsch said. “It’s an easy way to be eco-friendly.” At the beginning of the project, an area wood smith offered tips on working with dilapidated pieces of wood. “It really added a lot of valid-

ity to the assignment,” Deutsch said. Cameron Klehr brought in wood from a small barn at his grandparents farm in Belle Plaine Township. The wood is over 100 years old, the younger Klehr said. Like many old barns, the wood is some form of oak. Luke Bristlin brought in a large oak log from a farmhouse along County Road 14, just north of Highway 25. The log was part of a wall. The house has been slowly collapsing for decades. “My grandpa is 80 and he said it was falling down when he was a kid,” Bristlin said. From old barn wood to pallets, much of the wood was in tough shape. The students’ first task was to select the most usable parts, that which required the least amount of preparation ranging from removing old nails to straightening warped sections of the wood. They spent hours sanding, removing bark and years of growth, work made easier by the array of tools in the school’s shop. Deutsch has been pleasantly surprised by the creativity his students have displayed in the short project. He placed few

guidelines upon them, only that they have to make something usable. “These kids are really creative. I like the art of what they’re designing,” Deutsch said. At a worktable on the west side of the workshop, Klehr was assembling the pieces of the coat rack. He frequently stopped and rearranged pieces before finally settling on a pattern. “I just started cutting boards randomly,” Klehr said. “We started putting pieces together, some horizontal and some vertical.” When assembled, the coat rack will be mounted to a wall. He’ll apply decorative hangars to complement the wood. Klehr likes the idea of making something usable that will provide memories of the old barn. The project is a break from the night stands, gun cabinets, chairs and tables the students are making. Their re-purposing of wood is also a start contrast to the smooth, pristine wood from the mill. Deutsch expects his students will have completed their coat rack projects earlier this week. “It’s kind of cool working with this old wood,” Klehr said.
