NUMBER 3

Karl and Rosemary Kolden of Belle Plaine recently purchased the Belle Plaine, Arlington, Le The Belle Plaine School Board held its organizational meeting Jan. 7. The board includes Sueur and Henderson funeral homes from his parents, Darrell and Jane Kolden. (back row, from left) directors Mike Ludvik, Mike Daly, Matt Lenz, Superintendent Kelly Smith, (front row, from left) directors Judy Nagel, Matt Bigaouette and Gary Steinhagen.

B.P. School Board Passes on Raise at Annual Meeting In a year where there were no elections and no new members to be sworn-in to membership on the Belle Plaine School Board, the annual organizational meeting was more about formality on Jan. 7. The board unanimously named Director Matt Lenz board chairperson for a second year, continuing a board practice of a two-year rotation as leader of the school board. Lenz is begin-

St. Patrick’s Planning Meeting Jan. 17 The Belle Plaine St. Patrick’s Committee will hold its first planning meeting for this year’s celebration on Thursday, Jan. 17 at Neil’s Pub downtown.

ning his sixth year on the Belle Plaine School Board. Directors named Matt Bigaouette board vice chairperson. Like Lenz, Bigaouette is beginning his sixth year on the board. Directors named Mike Daly as the board’s clerk and Gary Steinhagen as the treasurer. They’ve served on the board for seven and three years, respectively. Directors declined to increase board member compensation for 2013. Steinhagen suggested an increase of $300 annually, a motion that received no support. “Nobody does this for the money, but we shouldn’t do it for a loss,” he said. Steinhagen, a dairy farmer, pays someone to milk cows for him on school board meeting days. “The reality is there isn’t a tremendous clamoring to be on the board,” Bigaouette said, adding that the level of compensation may discourage anyone from serving. Board members are paid $1,200 annually, an amount that hasn’t changed in eight years. The chairperson is paid an additional $200. The vice chairperson, clerk and treasurer receive an additional $150. They also receive an additional $50 for special meetings and $100 for all-day meetings. Directors

will be paid 56.5 cents per mile they drive to events associated with their roles on the board. The board typically meets twice a month on Mondays. In additional to preparation for meetings, the actual meetings generally last one to two hours. Superintendent Kelly Smith said Belle Plaine School Board members are paid on the “low end by what would be considered average” compared to other area school boards. Jordan directors receive $2,500 annually. In districts with larger enrollments, Waconia School Board directors receive $3,100 a year. Directors on the Eastern Carver County (Chaska), Shakopee and Prior Lake-Savage Area school boards receive $4,000 annually. Pointing to the economic impact the recession has had on area residents, Daly spoke against an increase in compensation. “I don’t mind being on the low end of average,” he said. Steinhagen and the rest of the board OK’d maintaining director compensation at the existing level. In other organizational business, the board tabled approval of board committee assignments until its Jan. 28 meeting.

Darrell and Jane Kolden Sell Funeral Homes to Son and Daughter-in-Law Darrell and Jane Kolden have announced the sale of Kolden Funeral Homes in Belle Plaine, Arlington, Le Sueur and Henderson to their son and daughter-in-law, Karl and Rosemary Kolden of Belle Plaine. Darrell Kolden has been asso-

ciated in funeral services for 43 years, having owned the funeral homes in Le Sueur and Henderson since 1981. He acquired the Fenske Funeral Homes of Arlington and Belle Plaine in 2001 from Ronald Fenske. Karl and Rosemary have been

employed at Kolden Funeral Home since graduating from Worsham College of Mortuary Science in 2002. Darrell will continue to be employed at the funeral home along with Shawn Kirby, Greggory Borchert and Tonya Borth.

Honored Life-Savers Tuesday morning, Scott County Sheriff Kevin Studnicka (left) presented the Morris A. Miller Health Hero Award to Belle Plaine School assistant football coaches Jerold Stauffacher, Joe Ploetz and John Wellner and the Morris A. Miller Outstanding Service Award to Belle Plaine Police Officer Ben Pederson (far right). Their efforts saved the life of Ken Wick, a junior high football coach and the district’s IT director (second from right) after he collapsed during practice Sept. 11. When Wick collapsed, Wellner, Stauffacher and Ploetz ran to his side. They administered hands-free cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) after Stauffacher called 9-1-1. Pederson administered the first of four automated external defibrillator (AED) shocks that returned Wick’s heart to its proper rhythm. Wick credits the four men and the use of CPR and an AED for saving his life. Ridgeview Medical Center paramedics and Belle Plaine firefighters have since trained BP students in the use of CPR and AED. Hands-only CPR training is now a requirement for graduation from high school beginning in the 2014-15 school year.

The benefit includes live music donated by Nite Time Boogie Band. A member of the Meger family, Kathy Kocina grew up in rural Belle Plaine. Her son, Tom, was seriously hurt in a motorcycle crash Aug. 7 on Highway 13 south of Montgomery. He endured an array of injuries that include serious head

trauma, nerve damage to the left side of his face and the back of his head, a fractured collar bone and damage to his ribs, foot, ankle and dislocated shoulder. Because of the memory loss he has suffered, Tom was moved to the head trauma unit at Bethesda Hospital in St. Paul where he received treatment. Kathy said her son is facing future surgeries with optimism and faces a long recovery ahead. Unable to work, Tom and his three children, ages 10, 6 and 4, are living with Kathy and Ron.

Area School Districts Eying Earlier First Day of School Year

Extension Service Workshops for Small Farm and Acreage Owners Do you have the dream of owning acreage in the country? Do you have an existing acreage that is in need of a plan and strategies for the best possible results? The Living on the Land Workshop Series, offered by University of Minnesota Extension, will equip you with the education and resources to be successful. The eight-week course is designed to arm landowners with agricultural information to enable them to be good stewards of their land. The course will begin with goal-setting and individual property inventory, then address soil, plant, water and animal basics. The Living on the Land curriculum addresses a growing need for information regarding small acreages. The series incorporates knowledge and experience from a team of instructors to address topics, including what do you have and what do you want, what you can do with your land, protecting water quality, what to do about weeds, lawn and pasture maintenance, getting down and dirty with soils, and caring for and managing your animals. The series also includes a farm tour. The series will be taught by Extension educators and natural resource professionals at two locations. One of the locations is in Gaylord at the Sibley

County Service Center. In Gaylord, the series will be held on Monday evenings from Feb. 4 to March 25. The second location is in Northfield at the Northfield Community Resource Center. In Northfield, the series will be held on Thursday evenings from March 7 to April 25. Both workshops will run from 6-9 p.m. with light meals provided at each session. Early registration is $175 until Monday, Jan. 28 for the Gaylord location and Thursday, Feb. 28 for the Northfield location. All registrations received after those dates will be $200. Each registration is valid for up to two people representing a single farm who will share materials. For example, a husband and wife team or two siblings may attend together. Benefits include useful educational publications, an educational farm tour, soil tests, a site visit/consultation from a University of Minnesota Extension educator in your area, as well as the tools to help you succeed with your goals and dreams on your country acreage. For more information about the series in Gaylord, contact Julie Sievert at 507-237-4100 or schu0944@umn.edu or Christian Lilienthal at 507-9340360 or lili0004@umn.edu. For questions regarding the Northfield location, contact Mike Donnelly at 507-332-6109 or donne099@umn.edu.

Private Pesticide Applicator Trainings Scheduled Minnesota farmers will have three options for renewing their pesticide applicator certification. In addition to completing an open book test or an online test at www.pat.umn.edu, private applicators who need to recertify can attend a three-hour private applicator recertification workshop offered by the University of Minnesota Extension in lieu of taking the test. Recertification by retesting is also an option, as in the past, and no changes have been made to the testing option. Tests packets can be picked up at most county extension offices or the test can be taken online. A farmer who is not currently certified (i.e. getting the certification for the first time) is required to take the test and cannot be certified by attending a recertification workshop. There are many workshops being offered across Minnesota, with several workshops being offered in your area. The training site located in the Belle Plaine area include: Jordan: Wednesday, Jan. 23 at noon – Scott Co. Extension Office, 7151 190th Street West – Suite 100. Cologne: Wednesday, Jan. 30 at 12:30 p.m. – Cologne Community Center, 1211 Village Parkway. Le Center: Wednesday, Jan. 30 at noon – Le Sueur County Fairgrounds 4-H Building, 320 South Plut Avenue

Arlington: Tuesday, Feb. 19 at 1 p.m. – Arlington Community Center, 204 Shamrock Drive. North Mankato: Wednesday, Feb. 20, at 6 p.m. – South Central College, 1920 Lee Boulevard, Conference Center A or C. Farmers who attend a recertification workshop must have two forms of ID to attend a workshop, one being a government issued photo ID (i.e. Driver License), the second a current Applicators Certification Card (preferred) or another ID such as a credit card or library card. Persons who do not have their Applicators Card may obtain their applicators number (needed for registration) online at www.mda.state.mn.us or by contacting MDA via phone at 651-201-6633. Attending a recertification workshop renews your certification for three years. Workshop topics will include pesticide laws and regulations, record keeping, applicator health effects, pesticide label comprehension, application equipment, pest management and endangered species. The cost to recertify either by attending a recertification workshop or retesting is $50. Registration for the recertification workshops will be taken at the door. No pre-registration is required. Applicators who arrive more than 15 minutes late to a workshop will not be allowed to receive recertification credit.

My weekend reading lead me into a bit of a paradox. If you routinely read this column, you know I like to look and see what makes the day or week famous. This week, I learned that January 16 is “National Nothing Day”. This observance has run for 40 years. It was created to provide Americans one day in the year where there was no observance or celebration or a specific need to honor anything. At first, the idea seemed to make some sense. The more I thought about it though, the more it confused me. If we chose of observe this day, would we have, in fact, failed to do so. If I choose not to observe the day, I think I have observed the day. It may be something about the day January 16, that causes things that make no sense. How well do you know your American history? Do you know the what the 18th amendment to the constitution was? The Volstead Act was passed to enforce it. January 16, 1919 was the start of prohibition of alcoholic beverages. Obviously, it must have made sense to enough people at the time to pass into law. However, in the long run, it spurred a huge increase in criminal activities. The unpopularity finally lead to the 21st amendment which repealed the 18th amendment on December 6, 1933. If you wish to brush up on your American history, I suggest that you do a bit of reading. We will gladly help you. On the Minnesota history side, the start of prohibition on January 16 caused Schell’s Brewery in New Ulm, to invent their 1919 root beer to stay in business during the prohibition years.

If the state will cooperate, students in the Le Sueur-Henderson and St. Peter school districts will be heading back to class in August. Superintendents in those two school districts are seeking support from state lawmakers to move the allowable opening date for school to before-Labor Day, the traditional end of summer vacation. The Le Sueur News-Herald reported the rationale for the change would be aligning the end of semester with the Christmas break. Currently, students come back from break and then finish the semester. Rep. Kelby Woodard and Sen. Kevin Dahle, DFL-Northfield, both support the move if that is what the school boards desire. “Local school boards and superintendents are in the best position to make the decisions that meet the demands of their local community,” Woodard said. “As a result, the determination of start dates should be made by local school districts

and not by St. Paul.” Dahle authored a bill that would allow school district’s to set their own start dates during his first stint in the Minnesota Senate. “I did get a hearing but it did not pass of course due to the heavy lobbying from the hotel and tourism industry. I am still in favor of allowing schools to set their own calendar and will support any legislative efforts to allow that to happen,” he said. Proponents of the calendar change note starting school in August would give schools two weeks of additional time to prepare for state math, science and reading tests in the spring. Other advantages include closer alignment with college schedules for students in PSEO (post secondary educational opportunities) and college in the schools programs. The earlier start date would also create a mid-May end of the school year. A few years back, several

school districts in southwestern Minnesota moved to an earlier start date. Belle Plaine School District Superintendent Kelly Smith was interested in the advantages of the plan. However, he needs support of school districts in Scott and Carver counties because they share educational cooperative and special education programs. However, Le Sueur-Henderson Superintendent Rich Hanson said the calendar he and St. Peter School District Superintendent Jeff Olson are supporting would make the Thursday and Friday before Labor Day as noschool days, a move that would extend the holiday weekend. Olson reportedly believes the proposal has merit, noting the state’s OK for districts elsewhere in the state to start before Labor Day. The Northfield School District and other districts in Rice County are also reportedly interested in the proposal.

Great River Energy to Hold Open House On Transmission Line Separate from CapX2020 Great River Energy will host one more open house meetings on today (Wednesday) for property owners and members of the public to learn about an electric transmission project the utility is proposing in Scott and Rice Counties. This project is independent of the CapX2020 projects. The public is encouraged to stop by one of the open houses to learn about the proposed project and the state of Minnesota’s permitting process, which will include further opportunities for public input. The proposed project consists of rebuilding approximately 11.5 miles of existing transmission line to operate at a higher voltage (115,000 volts), building a new transmission line approximately 5.4 miles long and permitting two miles of existing transmission line to operate at a higher voltage (115,000 volts). Communities that could be affected by the proposed project

include portions of Credit River, New Market, Cedar Lake, Wheatland and Webster townships, and portions of the cities of Savage, Prior Lake and Elko New Market. A fact sheet that includes a detailed map of the proposed project can be found at greatriverenergy.com/elkonewmarketclearylake. The proposed project is needed to improve the reliability of the transmission system in the area and address risks associated with low voltage and transmission line overloading. The project is also important for providing the capacity needed for economic development and growth in use of electricity in the area. The meetings are an opportunity for the public and property owners to provide feedback to Great River Energy on the project and potential routing considerations before the utility prepares an application for a

certificate of need and route permit from the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission (MPUC). The MPUC will make the final decision on the project’s need and route. “Public input is an important part of the process,” said Great River Energy’s Senior Field Representative Peter Schaub. “Great River Energy will consider public input when we are preparing our permit application and we encourage people to come to the meetings and have their questions answered.” Tonight’s open house will take place at Prior Lake High School at 7575 150th Street West in Savage. No formal presentations will be given. Attendees are welcome to stop by anytime between 6:30-8:00. Great River Energy is a notfor-profit cooperative that provides wholesale electricity to more than 1.7 million people through 28 member distribution cooperatives in Minnesota and Wisconsin.

Thirty Years Ago This Week

Wrestling Brothers Wrestling has been a Fogarty family affair for many years. During the 1982-83 wrestling season at Belle Plaine High School, these three brothers, from left, Ed, Andy and Bob, were all having good seasons for the Tigers and for good reasons. “We make each other work harder,� said Bob. “It’s all our goals to go to state competition,� said Bob. “Mom makes sure we get our vitamins,� Andy said. Although some reservations were cited at the public hearing that Tuesday night, most Belle Plaine seniors agreed that they were happy with the possibility of having a new senior citizens center in town. About 20 Belle Plaine residents, mostly seniors, met with members of the city council and a representative of the Scott County Housing and Redevelopment Authority to discuss the center, which was only in the planning stages as the city waited for the awarding of a possible grant ($215,000) from the government. “I do think a town this size should have one (a senior center),� seniors director Frances Brandl said. “I have been praying for this for the past 10 years.� Most of the discussion centered around the size of the building and available parking spaces, of which some residents said weren’t enough. Those folks putting on a “Wellness at Work� fair for that coming Friday were not out to turn people into health nuts who run five miles a day and eat nothing but sunflower seeds and yogurt, but they wanted the residents of Belle Plaine to be more aware of what they can do to stay healthy. The event, which was to be held from noon to 5 p.m. at the junior high gym, was a first of sorts for Belle Plaine. The Scott County Board of Commissioners and county department heads were looking into the possibility of building a third floor addition to the courthouse in order to provide office space for the Human Services Department. The total cost of the new facility would be $2.3 million, most of which would come from the general government fund. A public hearing was scheduled for Jan. 25. The flu bug had apparently hit Belle Plaine. A number of wrestlers and basketball players at the school missed athletic events that week due to illness. The Belle Plaine High School basketball team stretched its winning streak to five games with victories of 60-44 over Le Center and 53-51 over Minnehaha. Dave Harms led the scoring attack against Le Center with 15 points. At Minnehaha, Brent Meyer’s last-second lay up gave the Tigers an exciting two-point win. Jeff Fogarty led the team in scoring with 22 points. Kevin Wolpern had 15 rebounds. The BPHS girls’ basketball squad split two games that week, beating Jordan 53-28 and losing to Norwood 36-29. Against Jordan, Sandi Schmidt led the Tigers with 13 points. Laurie Wolpern, a freshman, had 10 points and 18 rebounds against Norwood. The Tiger wrestling team lost two duals that week, falling to Le Center and Nicollet. Joe Dvorak and Bob Fogarty both won two matches for Belle Plaine.

60 Years Ago (1953)

away at a hospital at New Castle, Wyo. Mrs. Hubert Molitor, mother of Donald Molitor of Belle Plaine, died at her home in Farmington after a brief illness. She was 72. The marriage of Leo J. Brown, son of Mrs. Mary Brown of St. Thomas, and Miss Irene Shimota, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. William Shimota of Elko, took place at the New Prague Catholic Church. Kevin O’Brien was to represent this region in the welterweight division at the state Golden Glove meet. O’Brien won the right to enter the state tournament by winning two bouts at the regional finals in Shakopee. The Belle Plaine Independents continued their winning streak as they topped Prior Lake 3934. Dave Hegna again took scoring honors for Belle Plaine with 11 points. After holding a slight lead throughout most of the game, the Belle Plaine Tigers lost in the final minutes to Henderson 51-46. Leo Brandl, who sold his farm, the old brewery place to Charles Goetz, was planning an auction.

90 Years Ago (1923)

Beckman of Jordan was elected president and Lando Mensing of Belle Plaine vice president. In order to boost winter attendance at the movie house, management scheduled one night a week as “Family Night,� the whole household admitted for 44 cents. Mrs. August Gabbert, nee Koepp, died at her home in Henderson. Many from Belle Plaine and Blakeley attended the funeral. J.J. Clifford sold his farm east of St. Thomas to Joseph T. Wacker, and had under consideration moving to St. Peter, from which point he would continue in the auctioneering business. Well drillers on the Fred Krueger farm in Le Sueur County claimed they struck a large deposit of iron ore at a depth of 200 feet. It was said the ore was of excellent quality. When relatives and friends carried out a surprise on Mr. and Mrs. Emil Freter, they brought with them the Moenke orchestra, and there was dancing and card playing.

120 Years Ago (1893)

Skating on the river attracted crowds. Every woman and girl in the community learned to skate that winter. The borough council had Atty. Irwin draw up a memorial to send to Congress to appropriate $25,000 to make the Minnesota River stay within its bounds at this place. The convention of the county teachers association included the teachers from this community – Katie Clark, Peter Weldon Jr., Nellie Conroy, Maggie Stratton, Andy Donovan, E.J. Meierbachtol, George Sandberg, Emma Jackson, Bridget Clark. The borough council was being cussed for the cold weather that froze up the town’s water works. Most of the water pipes burst, the tank leaked badly, and the pump rod broke and fell “clean down into China,� as one citizen commented.� A Milwaukee bank brought an action against Sibley County to recover $4,560 on Green Isle ditch bonds. The county claimed the bonds were not officially authorized and therefore void. The bank said it would fight the case to the bitter end.

Letters to the Editor Dear Editor, The NRA is afraid. They are afraid that we finally understand what they are. The response of the NRA to the Newtown massacre proves they are not listening to the mothers of the world. To call immediately for teachers to carry guns in elementary schools instead of a thoughtful measured response proves they care neither for safety nor justice. Their claim to be the protector of a strict reading of the constitution can not be believed in light of the evidence on our streets. It is now obvious the NRA has only two goals: sell weapons, and protect their power in Washington, D.C. It is time for the mothers of this country to join together, and speak in a clear loud voice. Too many babies have died of gunshot wounds. The NRA spent $24 million on the 2012 elections on top of $4.4 million to lobby congress. The headlines only 30 days after Newtown say congress will not ban assault weapons because of the NRA lobby. It is time to speak to congress in the only language they understand. Join Gabby Gifford’s PAC (americansforresponsiblesolutions. com). Give what dollars you can afford. If congress is only going to listen to dollars, then we need to speak with dollars. Larry Kiewel Belle Plaine Dear Editor, Common Sense vs Hysteria On guns, we need common sense rules. We have licensing and registration requirements for vehicles, why not guns? As a gun owner, a background check doesn’t bother me, I have nothing to hide, people against background checks must be hiding something...if “guns don’t kill people, people do�, then why not do background checks on PEOPLE?  I don’t need a clip that holds more than 10 rounds. People that need a large capacity magazine need more practice.  I don’t believe civilians need military weapons for “sport� or hunting. The basic AR15 is a military M16 that is not fully automatic capable, and will fire just as fast as you can pull the trigger, about 3 rounds per second. It can  be made fully automatic illegally with a kit. It is a weapon and ammunition combo that was created to inflict maximum damage on the enemy body it enters, as the bullet tumbles upon entry. One round shot into a pumpkin causes it to explode. There wouldn’t be much edible meat left on a deer if shot with one. Can you imagine what it would do to a sixyear-old?  There is no civilian use for armor piercing bullets, it’s what you’d need if hunting people.   On “good guys with guns� stopping “bad guys with guns�: On the day of the Columbine shootings, there were two armed deputies in the school before and during the shooting. The shooting didn’t stop until the shooters shot themselves. During the Tucson shooting there was a “good guy with a gun� present and he almost shot the unarmed good guy that took Jared Loftner down.     The Clinton COPS program was defunded by the GOP, showing we don’t want to pay for protection. Which teachers/classes are we willing to do away with to pay for armed deputies in schools? Some say we pay too many taxes for education already; does anyone have an idea on how to pay for armed guards, too? Eighty-five percent of children killed by guns in the world are killed in the U.S. It’s time for clear thinking, common sense regulation.  The NRA opposes all regulation, even lobbying against basic checks against the Terror Watch List on gun purchases. National security doesn’t  take precedence over their wanting to sell guns to terrorists. They use gun

control hysteria to sell guns and get contributions, it’s their business. Not much common sense in evidence.  Sanda Oslin Sturgeon Lake, MN

Dear Editor, We live in the midst of small town heroes. My husband has been on the BP Fire Dept since 2003. Through these years, I occasionally find myself feeling selfish. His pager goes off; he heads out the door, responding to whatever emergency lies ahead, wherever he is needed. How many meals, activities, holidays with family, birthdays, kids’ sports, concerts, plays/ productions, he misses. How many times we’re left stranded with no ride, or at a restaurant with his meal, left to finish the grilling/making of dinner. To be on the fire department, police department, or a paramedic means the family as a whole commits. On a normal day, our family does that; we support my husband, their father. Often enough, however, those selfish feelings surface, and my husband reminds me that the individual at the other end of that call needs him more at that moment than we do. It was just a couple months ago that I needed such a reminder, and in more recent history, on December 8, it became even more personal. Our own dad and grandfather was the individual that needed my husband, the firemen, policemen, and ambulance personnel more than I and our children did at that moment. And he needed more than even them; he needed our small town barber, Brad Schultz. Brad called 911 and began CPR on Dad. Later Brad confessed that he felt his CPR skills were inferior to those of the paramedics and first responders. To you I say, your “inadequate skills�, hands-down, saved our dad’s, our grandpa’s, life. You brought his chance of survival from 0% to 50% the moment you used your hands on his chest. Your skills WERE adequate; they were exactly what Dad needed at exactly that moment. How many times in the hospital did we hear the importance of that. Over and over, each doctor, each specialist, each nurse. (These individuals are heroes and angels in their own right as well.) I resolutely believe that God put each of these individuals in the path of our dad that day, and that in turn, God directed Dad’s footsteps into Brad’s Barber Shop, and into the lives of each of these individuals. “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you, not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.� (Jeremiah 29:11) How does a family, a survivor, show adequate, yet humble, gratefulness? How do those overwhelming emotions get put into words? I don’t believe they can. I don’t know how WE can. Our dad is a Christmas miracle. The overwhelming love and support from all of you; our community, our congregation, our pastors, our family, our friends, and our neighbors; Brad Schultz, paramedics, policemen, firemen, (ALL of which are our small town heroes) and your families; Dad is absolute and profound proof of the power of prayer - YOUR prayers. With humble gratitude, Shelly and Rob Selly, & family Mike and Noemi Vatthauer, & family Sue and Phil Werth, & family Beth and Bob Schmidt, & family (Several weeks ago, the Belle Plaine School District, along with individuals from the community and organizations listed above, brought these CPR/AED skills to our own 9-12 grade students. Our entire community can appreciate the instruction and knowledge given to these students.)

Le Sueur County Needs New Home for Mental Health Clients The Le Center City Council recently sent a message to Le Sueur County – find a new place to house human service mental health clients. The council recently rejected proposals to allow clients enduring serious and persistent mental health illness to stay at the Guardian Inn more than 30 days. The hotel was not zoned for people to stay there more than 30 days. Fearing possible public safety concerns, especially in a part of town where many residents have children, the council rejected a proposed conditional-use permit to allow the clients to stay at the motel for more than a month.

Le Sueur County needs a place to house the clients that is less expensive than an institutionalized setting. About 90 of the county’s 130 serious and persistently mentally ill human services clients live in residential settings, in apartments or with family members in their homes. The motel needs the revenue from the county to benefit its bottom line. Its owner, Tom Serie, said allowing nine clients to stay at the hotel and maintaining a 50 percent occupancy rate would allow his business to get by. Serie said he would accept the city council’s decision.

Benefit Set for Evan Snyder Family and friends of infant Evan Snyder are organizing a benefit on his behalf that will take place Jan. 26 from 1-5 p.m. at Neisen’s Sports Bar and Grill in Savage. Evan, the grandson of “Big Don� Edberg of Belle Plaine and great grandson of Ken and Vernie Edberg, also of Belle Plaine, was born Sept. 4, 2012, and ever since that time, “has been a fighter.� Evan inhaled Meconium, which is called Meconium aspiration syndrome (MAS). MAS is a medical condition affecting newborn infants. It occurs when meconium is present in their lungs during or before delivery. Meconium is the first stool of an infant, composed of materials ingested during the time the infant spends in the uterus. Meconium is normally stored in the infant’s intestines until after birth, but sometimes (of-

ten in response to fetal distress) it is expelled into the amniotic fluid prior to birth, or during labor. If the baby then inhales the contaminated fluid, respiratory problems may occur. Evan had been on a number of different machines that help to support his heart and lungs. He recently was able to go home and is doing much better. The benefit will help Evan’s parents cover the mounting medical and travel expenses, as well as general cost-of-living as they have missed many hours of work due to Evan’s condition. Donations for auction and raffle items are being sought. With you donation, your company/ individual name will be recognized, including your name being placed on a banner at the benefit. For more information or to make a donation, visit www. caringbridge.org/visit/evansnyder.

Christmas Bird Count Results by Art and Barb Straub The annual Nay Nature Center area Christmas Bird Count (CBC) on Dec. 15 began and ended with “birding for geese weather� – misty, light rain and fog. The result, you may have guessed, Canada Geese numbers were higher than anytime in the past five years. The Mark and Shirley Katzenmeyer Preserve attracted about 700 at one time, and other flocks plied about the Minnesota River, with a goodly number of bald eagles keeping a close eye on their behaviors. In spite of the drizzly weather, close to 90 stalwart citizen-scientists braved the bleak outdoors, tromping and stomping hither and yon, in an attempt to gather data on their feathered friends, after a summer of heat, drought and unpredictable circumstances. Some folks dared to brave the out-of-doors; others chose to keenly observe their bird-feeders. A major surprise was the spotting of a Rose-breasted Grosbeak near Belle Plaine. This winter rarity has never graced the CBC in the past 16 years. (The outskirts of that fair city are within the 7.5 radius of the NEY Nature Center, CBC epicenter.) The summer and autumn of 2012 were seasons of all manner of odd observations, and this grosbeak seemed to be accustomed to Minnesota hospitality, thus sticking around for black-oil sunflower seed at local feeding stations.

Wild turkeys made a great showing, the best in the past five years as there were 412 counted. Around noonday, after the drizzle slackened, flocks of 25 and more dashed from the woodlands to the few corn/bean fields showing stubble. Darkeyed juncos were abundant, 456, with American gold-finches close behind, 322. Finches, being nomads, vary from year to year, however, purple finches and pine siskins appeared in goodly numbers in this year’s count. Due to the rather “open winter,� plus mouse and rabbit population explosions, raptors were on patrol in good numbers, with red-tailed hawks and kestrels being most prevalent. It was a rarity in not too many years gone by, for Mourning Doves to “winter-over� in Minnesota. The count of 91 was the second highest in the past six years. In addition, two Greatblue herons have remained in the area, and where they are gaining sustenance is a mystery, their natural food supply being sparse. When citizens were greeted by the dank environment on birdcount day, a general feeling of depression as to number of birds that might be encountered enveloped the participants. However, with so many local citizen scientists involved, the count was quite remarkable with 45 species encountered in all. Complete totals of the CBC results may be obtained on the NEY Nature Center website.

By Dr. Kelly Smith

Everyday across America, children attend school in pursuit of an education that will help them be successful throughout their lives. One of the many vital cogs in this pursuit is the paraprofessional. In general, paraprofessionals work in support of the teacher. Having certified, enthusiastic, well-prepared paraprofessionals can make an enormous difference in the efficiency of a child's classroom and the implementation of a child's Individual Education Plan; and Belle Plaine is fortunate to have such quality staff filling these roles. Paraprofessionals can and do wear numerous hats throughout the school day. They work with students with special needs in a small group or one-to-one situations, they assist the classroom teachers with ensuring the learning of students, they supervise the playground during recess, monitor the cafeteria, they assist in the media center, assist the office staff, administer and enter RTI probes, job coach, etc. This list could go on and on. One thing is certain; they are necessary for our students and teachers to help ensure learning success. They are essential to the smooth operation of any good school. Governor Dayton has proclaimed January 14-18 as Paraprofessional Recognition Week in Minnesota. There are over 25,000 paraprofessionals working in Minnesota schools and educational programs. Without these important members of our staffs, the day-to-day operations of our schools would look significantly different. Paraprofessional Recognition Week is January 14-18, but Paraprofessional Appreciation should be everyday. The legislative session is now in session and already there are proposed bills that would have a significant impact on our local district. The most significant bill is one that would fully fund Kindergarten for all districts that voluntarily offer the program. Belle Plaine has offered free, all-day kindergarten for the past five years and has already committed financial resources to this program. Any additional funding that is approved for all-day kindergarten would be of great benefit to our district. As I mentioned in this column last week, I am seeking parents and community members to visit the State Capitol and our local legislators to talk about school funding issues. January 29th is the date we have set for our visit and I would encourage any interested parties to contact me as soon as possible if you wish to join us for this visit. Please contact me via email at ksmith@ belleplaine.k12.mn.us or at the phone number listed below. We hope to have a good sized group representing Belle Plaine at the Capitol! 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!

open position, and submits this slate of candidates for consideration by the full Legislature sitting in joint convention. Smith earned his doctorate at the University of Minnesota. The four open regent seats to be filled include one student at-large position, one representative from Minnesota Fifth Congressional District and two at-large positions. All appointments will be for full six-year terms. Smith is one of four candidates for two at-large positions. The other three includes current regents, Linda Cohen and Dean Johnson plus Peggy Lucas. He is seeking the position with the approval of the school board and if ultimately selected, will retain his job in Belle Plaine. The RCAC received 33 applications for the four positions. It interviewed 14 applicants. The other finalists include (in alphabetical order): Student at-large:

Drew Coveyou, Abdul Omari, and Christopher Tastad; Fifth District: Dennis Nguyen and Ertugrul Tuzcu. The legislature created the council in 1988. It recruits, screens, and recommends regent candidates to the legislature. State law requires a minimum of two and a maximum of four names be forwarded for each open position. The Legislature appoints the council’s 24 members. The University of Minnesota Board of Regents has 12 elected members who serve without pay. Eight members represent the state’s congressional districts, and four at-large elected members, as is a student representative. The student member must be enrolled in a degree program at the University of Minnesota at the time of election. The six-year terms are staggered so that four regent positions come up for appointment every two years.

On the afternoon of January 31st, 2012 I was involved in a single-car accident on Hwy 169 just north of Belle Plaine. Sustaining significant injuries, I was airlifted by helicopter for emergency surgery and an extended stay in the ICU at North Memorial Hospital. Last fall, my family and I met with the responding members of the Belle Plaine Rural Fire Protection Agency to express our thanks. It is something we will never forget. As we begin 2013, I would like to once again thank our local firefighters who volunteer their time and skills to serve the community of Belle Plaine, along with the BP Police Department and all other emergency personnel. The past year has been full of challenges, small and large victories and ample time to reflect on how this event has changed my life for the better. The physical effects of the accident will be with me for a lifetime, but I am simply grateful to be here and owe my life to these men. Finally, I would like to thank local resident Sean Setterquist - the sole motorist who saw my vehicle leave the road and took action. I will always remain humbled by what you did for me that day. God bless - Nathan Shutes

Green Isle Council Eyes Plan for Disaster Communications

If a storm roared through Green Isle, eliminating cellular and landline communications between the small eastern Sibley County city and emergency responders, the ability to communicate vital information across the region would almost immediately overwhelm the systems citizens and emergency responders use to communicate throughout the region. In its first meeting of 2013 Jan. 8, the Green Isle City Council moved toward fixing that potential problem. The council gave a preliminary unanimous OK to Green Isle resident Don Burgess’s plan to put a low-voltage ham radio repeater on the city’s water tower 135 feet off the ground. A member of the Sibley County Skywarn Team, a group of trained weather spotters, Burgess is seeking a twoyear agreement with a five-year renewal. The repeater is an antenna that transmits ham radio communications throughout the region. Ham radio signals operate at a different level than the 800-megahertz signal police, firefighters and paramedics use, Burgess said. “You’d be doing a great service to the citizens of Green Isle and Sibley County,” he said. City Attorney Ross Arneson is further researching the issue and drafting a liability waiver and agreement for Burgess to sign. Donations from the Green Isle Lions and the Southern Minnesota SMART Radio Club are helping to fund the equipment for the repeater. The city council preliminarily agreed the city would pay for the electricity. Burgess expects it will cost about the same amount as operating the light in the park-

ing lot at Irish Yard. If a storm knocks out electricity to the area, solar-powered backup batteries will keep the repeater working, Burgess said. Because there are no repeaters nearby, Green Isle and the area are in a communications “black hole,” Burgess said. He said a repeater at Green Isle would serve Sibley, western Carver, northern Nicollet, northern Le Sueur and western Scott counties. It would dramatically enhance the signal from the area to Mankato and repeaters in the western suburbs. He said the need for a repeater in eastern Sibley County came to light in the summer of 2010 when many tornados and frequent severe weather plagued the region and state. Burgess recalled a baseball tournament at Irish Yard where severe weather sent fans scurrying for cover in the Green Isle Community Center.

New Councilors Take Oath, Organize

The first order of business at the Jan. 8 meeting was swearing in the new city council, led by Mayor Dale ZumBerge, the longest serving member of the council. Voters elected ZumBerge after Randal Bruegger opted against re-election. Councilors Mark Wentzlaff, Brian Oelfke, Todd Burg and Shawn Harms were also sworn-in. They were individually assigned committee posts that included the city’s economic development authority (EDA) and park board. Wentzlaff, the lone councilor with city experience, was unanimously approved as Green Isle’s vice-mayor. He’ll lead council minutes in ZumBerge’s

absence. ZumBerge wants the EDA to take an active role in marketing the undeveloped residential lots the state recently took via foreclosure. The city will set the price for the lots. Wentzlaff and Oelfke are ZumBerge’s appointees to the EDA. Once sold, he said, the city could reapply the assessments for city infrastructure to the lots. In other action at the Jan. 8 meeting, the Green Isle City Council: n Paid bills totaling $187,662.40. n Approved Fahey Sales Auctioneers and Appraisers schedule of auctions in the city’s industrial park for 2013. The company will pay the city a $1,000 fee for each auction it conducts. n Approved the city’s 2013 schedule of fees for service. It is the same as the 2012 schedule. ZumBerge said the city should crack down on unlicensed dogs and residents with past-due utilities bills. n Directed City Attorney Ross Arneson to draft a proposed city sump pump ordinance. The proposed ordinance is intended to prevent people from depositing storm water into the city’s sanitary sewer system. n Heard a report that Green Isle Community School will pay for repairs to a refrigerator and re-keying of locks in the school building the city owns. n Heard an update on the former Eustis Building the city recently demolished. The council tabled deciding how long the city will extend assessing the $21,450 cost of the demolition and interest rate it will charge until its Jan. 22 meeting.

Scott West Beats Sibley East, Wins Plainview Invitational The Scott West wrestling team won a Minnesota River Conference dual Friday night in Belle Plaine as it defeated Sibley East 37-20. The win keeps the Panthers’ MRC winning streak intact and will set up what will most likely be a Minnesota River Conference championship showdown in Jordan on Jan. 25 against Watertown-Mayer. Scott West last lost a MRC meet in the third year of the program during the 1992-93 season as it was beaten by Le Center, which is now Tri-City United after also wrestling as Montgomery-Lonsdale-Le Center for several seasons. After being removed from Minnesota River Conference wrestling membership following the 2002 season, Scott West returned last year to win the MRC championship. Friday night’s matches between Scott West and Sibley East began with Panther seventh-grader Jackson Stauffacher using a third period escape to fight his way to a 1-0 win over Tanner Pasvogel at 106 pounds. Stauffacher, the son of Scott West co-head coach Jerold Stauffacher, had made his successful Panther varsity debut the previous Thursday when he won a 17-2 technical fall over Le Sueur-Henderson’s Luke Wilson. “That was a huge win by Jackson to get us off to a good start against Sibley East,” insists Scott West co-head coach Darren Ripley. “Jackson has really improved his wrestling over the last year or so, and as he continues to develop, Scott West fans are going to be excited to watch him wrestle over the next several years.” After the Wolverines’ Mitch Heibel tied the team score at 3-3 with a 4-2 win over Ben Kelvington at 113, David Flynn put Scott West ahead for good as the sophomore scored a first period pin of Mason Voight at 120. “We were expecting bonus

points from David and he delivered with a tight pinning combination,” states Ripley. Panther Jacob Backlund would find the correct winning combination for the second consecutive Friday in Belle Plaine as the junior followed his big win over a New Prague opponent with a tense 4-3 overtime decision over Wolverine senior Nathan Thomas. Backlund tied the match at 3-3 when he was awarded a stall-call penalty point late in the match before he went on to win the match with an overtime escape and ride out. “It’s important to win the close matches in big dual meets,” comments Ripley. “Jacob has delivered on back-to-back Friday nights with big wins in close, hard-fought matches that the team needed him to win.” Scott West would continue to win matches as Zach Siegle dominated Wolverine freshman Jason Meyer in a 12-0 major decision at 132. That would lead to one of the feature matches of the night as Panther senior Luke Zilverberg got a rematch against Hunter Retzlaff at 138, a wrestler that essentially knocked Zilverberg out of the state tournament last year as he won over Zilverberg in a section semifinal match while wrestling for St. Peter, where he went onto place fifth in the state. Zilverberg would use a big second period to take command in this match as he scored a reversal and a low-level take down to score a big 4-2 win over Retzlaff. “Luke wrestled a good match and it was a big win for him and the team,” states Ripley. “It’s always good to see a Scott West wrestler avenge a previous loss and that’s something that is very important to us.” It was also important for Scott West to knock off one of the Wentzlaff’s brothers, and after Shane Abraham lost a 7-2 decision to Mitch Wentzlaff at 145, that task would fall to Panther

captain Jake Weierke, who delivered a 6-5 winning decision at 152 by scoring two points in each of the three periods. “We are still waiting for Shane to breakthrough and win matches, but he has done a good job in limiting bonus points,” comments Ripley. “Jake has been the consummate teammate as he has not had an easy assignment in wrestling in four different weight classes from 132152, but to his credit he will do what is needed to best help the team be successful.” After Wolverine Austin Kube scored a first period pin of Jack Storlie at 160, another consummate Scott West teammate, Andrew Fogarty, moved up a couple of weight classes to take on #4-rated Aaron Bates at 170 for the second feature match of the night. With the score tied at 1-1 in the third period, Bates scored a take down for a 3-1 lead. Fogarty quickly scored back with a reversal and a ride out that sent the match into overtime. After a Fogarty escape, Bates would win the match 5-4 on a penalty point for stalling and an escape. “Andrew gave it a great effort and you have to give him a lot of credit for moving up two weight classes to challenge Bates,” insists Ripley. The exciting wrestling continued as junior Derek Dahlke scored a third period pin of Nolan Osborne at 182 to give Scott West a 28-14 team lead. Dahlke’s teammate, Jake Schultz, secured the Scott West meet win as he followed with a big come-from-behind victory over Brandon Ashton at 195. With Ashton ahead 3-1 and in on Schultz’ leg in the third period, Schultz used a wizzar to power Brandon Ashton to his back for a take down and two-point near fall as Schultz went on to win a 5-4 decision that gave Scott West a 31-14 team lead. “We were expecting Derek to deliver bonus points and he did,” states Ripley. “It was a great win by Jake and our fourth one-point win on the night, which illustrates how hard-fought of a meet this was on both sides.” Sibley East was without their #1-rated 195-pounder Nathan Rose, and the meet would come to a close with a pair of pins as Wolverine Miah Dufrane scored a second period pin of Ray Carter at 220 before Scott West freshman Josiah Schatz put an end to the night of wrestling with a first period pin over Wolverine Clay Mogard. “Josiah did a good job of going right out and getting after him,” exclaims Ripley. “He put an exclamation point on a good, hard night of wrestling.” Scott West continued the good, hard wrestling on Saturday as it traveled to Plainview for the PEM Invitational, where it would crown six individual champions on the way to claiming the team championship with 193.5 points to the host runnerup PEM’s 175 points. “It was a good tournament for us,” states Ripley. “We got a lot of kids on the mat and had some breakthrough performances by a couple of them.” Scott West lightweight Ben Kelvington would have a

breakthrough performance as he wrestled his way to the championship at 106 pounds. After using two take downs and some solid riding to beat PEM’s Chase Defrang and advance to the championship finals, Kelvington outscored Eau Claire North’s 22-2 Justin Peterson 87 to win the tournament. Jackson Stauffacher placed fifth for Scott West at 106. David Flynn continued to use the wrestling weapons that he has as the sophomore ran his season record to 27-4 by claiming the championship at 120 pounds. Flynn nailed down the championship with a solid 4-0 win in the finals over former state place-winner Zach Kuhns of Maple River. Junior Zach Siegle also wrestled his way to the PEM Invitational championship as he scored a solid 7-0 win over Fillmore Central’s Connor Hanson in the finals. After a 4-3 first period, Luke Zilverberg converted a double arm bar into a second period pin of Austin’s Devon Felton to win the championship at 138 pounds. Sophomore Andrew Fogarty earned a 16-1 technical fall win over Mitch Stoltzman in the championship match at 160 and upped his season record to 25-2. Scott West 195-pounder Ray Carter, a junior, claimed the first varsity invitational championship of his career. After scoring a pin of PEM’s Elijah

need to improve on every day. Our posts really dominated this game. Alec Koepp had a great game blocking shots and was an intimidating presence late in the game. Gavin Dauwalter was tremendous rebounding the ball. Rebounding won the game for us.” Dauwalter had 10 points and 14 rebounds for the Tigers, both team highs. Koepp was limited to six points and six rebounds but had eight blocked shots. Rounding out the scoring for Belle Plaine were Bigaouette (7), Narveson (6), Bristlin (5), Meger (4), Karl (3) and Brandon Boateng (2). Winders and Meger followed Dauwalter in the rebounding department with seven apiece. Jordan 58, Tigers 53 Belle Plaine, which needed a big rally just to put itself in a position to send the game into overtime, couldn’t get the ball through the webbing in the closing seconds as the host Hubmen held on for the win. “This was a fun high school basketball game to be involved in. We didn’t end up on the winning side, but I am so proud of all our players after this game,” Wellner said. “We got down 19-4 and we could have folded the tents, but we kept fighting and took the lead 20-19 late in the first half. Jordan made more runs on us but we kept fighting back every time. Jack Winders does so many things that don’t show up in the box score, but he really made some nice plays in the game. Jordan really didn’t have an answer for Gavin Dauwalter. We ran the offense through him and he was a presence the whole night. Mitch Nelson really did a nice job of handling the ball and hitting a key shot when Alec got in foul trouble.” Dauwalter had another double-double with 17 points and 12 rebounds. The other scorers for the Tigers were Bigaouette (11), Meger (10), Winders (4), Koepp (4), Narveson (3), Karl (2) and Nelson (2). Bigaouette and Meger both had seven rebounds. St. Peter 79, Tigers 64 St. Peter, the No. 2 ranked team in the state in Class 2A, knocked off turnover-riddled Belle Plaine 79-64 at the BPHS gym. However, the coach was not displeased with his team’s effort. “Again, I can’t say how proud

I am of our guys,” Meger said. “This was their fourth game in five days, including three in a row. All of these games were against tough opponents. St. Peter is No. 2 in the state for a reason and that is because they capitalize on other team’s mistakes. We played pretty well in the first half but we couldn’t handle their press in the second half. They scored on almost every turnover we committed in the second half. You can’t have 20 turnovers and beat a team like St. Peter . . . On the bright side, Sam Karl played a great all-around game. He scored inside and outside, threw several great passes and played inspired defense.” Also having another big allaround game was Dauwalter as his latest double went for 16 points and 13 rebounds, both team highs. Karl and Bigaouette had 12 and 11 points, respectively. The other scorers for the Tigers were Koepp (8), Narveson (7), (Bristlin (5), Meger (3) and Nelson (2). 2012-13 BPHS Boys’ 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 W 68-52 Dec. 27-28 at St. James Tour. vs. Morris L 60-40 vs. St James W 75-62 Jan. 3 at S.E.

Tigers Fall to Raiders, Saints by Dan Ruud The Belle Plaine High School girls’ basketball team completed perhaps its toughest stretch of the season with losses at Norwood Young America on Thursday and at home against St. Peter on Saturday. In the game before those, the Tigers fell at first-place Jordan on Jan. 4. NYA is in second place in the Minnesota River Conference, while St. Peter is still regarded as one of the better teams in the section. The Tigers, 2-4 in the Minnesota River Conference, 5-9 overall, were scheduled to host Tri-City United in a Minnesota River Conference game Tuesday night after this edition of the Herald went to press. Next up is a nonconference game at home against Bethlehem Academy 7:30 p.m. this Thursday. MRC play will resume with a 7:30 p.m. tilt at winless Le Sueur-Henderson this Friday. NYA 77, Tigers 62 Despite the 15-point deficit in the end, Tigers coach Randy Carlson said he saw his team take another step forward. “We competed well during the whole game and were on the verge of an opportunity to win on numerous occasions. Again, we need to continue to learn to make plays at crucial times. “NYA is a very good team that shot well tonight,” Carlson continued. “At times, we rebounded well but not consistently enough.” Carlson was particularly pleased with the play of eighthgrader Mariena Hayden, who had 17 points and 13 rebounds. He also singled out Claire Otto, who had a team-high 18 points. Haley Fogarty was also in double digits with 14 points. Jamie Read and Amara Meyer both chipped in four points, followed by Sophie Brazil and Ellie Murphy with two apiece. Kalli Koepp had one. Fogarty

led the team in assists with seven. St. Peter 62, Tigers 60 In a rare Saturday matinee at the BPHS gym, the Tigers overcame an early 25-14 deficit with a 13-0 run to take a 27-25 lead. The game stayed competitive from that point on but it was the visiting Saints who got the lastsecond basket for a two-point triumph. Belle Plaine tied the game at 60-60 when Meyer scored with 13 seconds left to play. But St. Peter, with three seconds left, had the opportunity to inbound the ball from underneath its own basket and hit a lay up for the victory. “We did a lot of good things this game,” Carlson said. “We competed the whole game and made some big plays in tough situations against a quality team. Their two big girls hurt us inside but we did a good job containing them . . . This was a step in the right direction for us. Now, we need to learn to win these close games. We are a work in progress. Good things are coming.” Carlson praised the play and leadership of Fogarty, who poured in 27 points to go along with eight rebounds and four assists. Rounding out the scoring for the Tigers were Otto (13),

by Dan Ruud The Belle Plaine High School boys’ basketball team began last week in sole possession of first place in the Minnesota River Conference standings. By week’s end, the Tigers were tied for fifth following losses to Mayer Lutheran 55-46 on Tuesday and Jordan 58-53 on Friday. Belle Plaine split its two nonconference games last week, defeating Kenyon-Wanamingo 43-40 on Thursday and falling to St. Peter 79-64 on Saturday. The Tigers, 2-2 in the MRC, 5-6 overall, were scheduled to travel to New Ulm for a nonconference game Tuesday night after this edition of the Herald went to press. They will return to MRC play with a 7:30 p.m. tip off this Thursday at Norwood Young America and at home against Tri-City United the same time next Tuesday. Mayer Luth. 55, Tigers 46 The Tigers came close to overtaking the Crusaders on several occasions in the second half but the visitors were able to pull away late for the nine-point victory. “We just couldn’t put the ball in the basket tonight,” said Belle Plaine coach John Wellner. “Credit Mayer Lutheran with that. They played excel- Belle Plaine’s Alec Koepp had 12 points, eight rebounds and lent defense and really bothered three blocked shots against Mayer Lutheran last Tuesday us with their quickness. We had night at the BPHS gym. trouble running our offense as they pushed us out away from the basket. Defensively, we played pretty well. They scored a few more points than us in the second half but they made those shots off scramble situations that got them open shots. When we had our defense set, it was tough for them to score as well.” Alec Koepp led the Tigers in scoring with 12 points. Jacob Meger added 10, followed by Gavin Dauwalter (8), Sam Karl (5), Aaron Bigaouette ( 4), Jack Winders (4), Luke Narveson (2) and Luke Bristlin (1). Koepp and Dauwalter shared the team lead in rebounds with eight apiece. Tigers 43, Kenyon-W 40 The Tigers shot just 27 percent from the field but accumulated 51 rebounds to edge KenyonWanamingo by three points at the BPHS gym. “This was a good game to win, especially after losing to them in double overtime last year,” Wellner said. “Credit goes to our defense. When you hold a team to 40 you are doing something right. We had trouble again shooting and passing the ball. It is something that we just The Tigers’ Aaron Bigaouette had four points, six assists and Boys’ Basketball five rebounds against Mayer Lutheran last Tuesday night at (continued on page 16) the BPHS gym.

Ciliberto, Scott County Board at Odds Over Salary Again

Two years after his appeal of the Scott County Board’s decision on his salary, County Attorney Pat Ciliberto and the commissioners may again be headed back to court if they can’t find common ground. Last Tuesday, the county board met behind closed doors on Ciliberto’s appeal of his 2013 salary. Ciliberto had the county served with papers the previous week preserving his right to appeal his salary. But he has not opened a court file that will formalize the process and set a date for a court hearing. He said he has yet to retain counsel on the issue and will only move forward with an appeal if the board won’t address his concerns. The board unanimously OK’d a 3 percent salary hike for Ciliberto Dec. 18, increasing his salary to $131,840. It also granted a 3 percent raise for the county sheriff and commissioners. Commissioners Tom Wolf of Credit River Township and Joe Wagner of Sand Creek Township, the county board’s chairman and vice chairman for 2013, said their read of the board from the closed session is commissioners are not willing to grant Ciliberto the raise he wants and believes he deserves. They both declined to answer specific questions on the closed door-meeting.

Friday, Ciliberto said he had yet to hear from the county’s legal counsel on the wage appeal issue. Speaking separately, Wagner and Wolf fear the financial affect giving the county attorney the greater raise he wants would have with the county’s union and non-union employee groups.

He Understands, But . . .

enough,” said Wagner, Belle Plaine’s representative on the county board. Ciliberto was paid $128,884 in 2012 and received the same 3 percent salary increase for 2013 Scott County commissioners approved for themselves and County Sheriff Kevin Studnicka. But that’s the rub. Ciliberto says the 3 percent raise places his salary more than $9,000 below the average salary of county attorneys in Carver, Washington, Dakota, Anoka, Olmsted and St. Louis counties. Four of those six county attorneys are in their first term. Ciliberto is in his third term. Ciliberto believes he should be paid on-par with his peers and that to attract quality county attorney candidates in the years to come, Scott County should pay its county attorney a fair wage. Ciliberto is also frustrated because commissioners had apparently agreed during their off-camera November planning workshop to increase his salary to the average salary paid to the county attorneys in those six counties. Wagner said the understanding “crumbled like a house of cards” in the weeks between the planning workshop and mid-December because it meant approving salary increase at or near 10 percent. “There was no way anybody was willing to do that. Politically, that wasn’t going to happen,” Wagner said. Wagner and Wolf believe the next move is Ciliberto’s. Two years ago, he won a slight increase through an appeal. A judge also ordered Scott County to pay his legal fees of $13,930.94.

Brad Benson, president of the county’s largest union, the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) said he recognizes the importance of people being paid a fair market wage. Benson recognizes the complicating nature of the issue in that county commissioners have to face constituents who may not be as supportive. Benson said the timing of the issue is “awkward” because the county is still dealing with the economic challenges caused by the recession. “I’m generally supportive,” he said, “but the timing is not so good.” Benson said giving Ciliberto the raise he believes is fair wouldn’t directly impact the county’s next round of contract negotiations with AFSCME since the county has a salary and performance matrixes in place for each position and pay grade. “It’s complicated,” Benson said. Wagner has long advocated giving all the elected officers -- commissioners, the county attorney and sheriff the same percentage wage increase.

Woodard Bill Would Make Tapping School Funding Harder The first bill introduced this session by Rep. Kelby Woodard, R-Belle Plaine, would make it more difficult for the legislature to delay school funding. The bill (H.F. 53) would require a three-fifths majority in the legislature to enact a funding shift, instead of the simple majority needed today. “The standard for borrowing from our kids should be at least as high as it is for borrowing through bonding,” said Woodard, who serves as Republican lead on the DFL-controlled House Education Finance Committee. “Not only should we pay back what we owe now,

we should also make it tougher to borrow from our schools in the future. I look forward to committee hearings on this bill as soon as possible.” This year’s H.F. 1, which was introduced by the new House Democrat majority, resembles legislation House Republicans passed last year, with one key exception, Woodard said: That bill (H.F. 2083) identified surplus revenue from reserve accounts to pay back delayed school funding and was vetoed by Gov. Mark Dayton last spring. The Democrats’ latest bill makes no mention of where the funds would come from to

pay back this debt to public schools. The governor has repeatedly stated that he will not accept a piecemeal approach to the state budget, Woodard said. “The DFL did not like our bill to pay down K-12 debt last year when we dedicated the funds to actually make it happen,” he said. “Minnesotans clearly agree that we need to put a stop to accounting gimmicks (the Republican majority previously used) in our budget process. I hope the DFL will join me in calling for the full repayment of the balance owed to our schools ... now.”
