Scott County OKs Royalty Payments from Silica Mine Although it’s not expected to be a stable and significant revenue source, Scott County approved a plan for mineral rights from the first of two silica sand mines west of Highway 169. Tuesday morning, the board unanimously approved a plan where it will be paid a half-percent of the value of the silica sand Great Plains Sand mines from land west of Highway 169 north of Bluff Drive in Sand Creek Township. Using the company’s estimates, the county expects to receive about $137,500 annually in quarterly payments.

Tornado Can’t Squash Belle Plaine Family’s Spirit Benefits Planned to Help Family Chris Schmeckpeper isn’t terribly interested in people feeling sorry for him. Last weekend, with the mobile home he and his mother, Shirley, share in Belle Plaine, he was thinking about helping his neighbors in need. Chris Schmeckpeper is known throughout the mobile home park as someone who’ll lend a hand if a car isn’t starting, the guy you can call if you need a ride to an appointment. He and his mom are unfamiliar with being on the receiving end. “They don’t like the help. They’d rather help other people,” said Faye Robertson, the neighbor who called police and firefighters when the silver maple fell cross the Schmeckpepers’ mobile home. “Now it’s their turn.” But they could use the help. The mobile home they’ve lived in since the mid-1980s was destroyed around 4 a.m. last Tuesday (June 19) when powerful winds roared through Belle Plaine. The wind gusts measured as strong as 80 mph took down the silver maple next door to their home. As they were pulled out of the ground, the tree’s roots lifted Robertson’s deck next door by over 36 inches. The tree’s stump is almost 24 inches across. It fell across the trailer, crushing the hallway be-

tween two bedrooms and forcing Chris to scramble for an opening and move around the outside of trailer to reach his mother who slept in the front room. She wasn’t immediately certain a tree had just fallen on her home. Outside the mobile home, Chris Schmeckpeper saw smoke coming from inside the trailer. The mobile home park’s owner cut electricity to the lot. An insurance agent has told them the trailer is likely a total loss. A visit from an adjuster yesterday was expected to confirm that prediction. Judy is staying at her daughter’s apartment. Chris is staying at a neighbor’s place. He’s not about to give up. The park has been his home for nearly all of his 37 years. “Storms come and go, but we’re still here,” he said. “I like living in Belle Plaine,” Shirley said. “This is home.” In a community that’s close, where people are willing to help one another out in times of need, the Schmeckpepers’ neighbor and friends are planning benefits to help bridge the gap between insurance and the cost of a new mobile home. Robertson and Lisa Mathwig are planning benefits Aug. 34. The first is a spaghetti dinner with a silent auction. The second is a 5k walk, run and stroll. A separate benefit is scheduled for July 27, 6 p.m. to 1 or 2 a.m. in the park. It will feature a band or DJ, dinner and silent

auction. The family is more interested in thanking those who have helped them – police, firefighters and neighbors – than a benefit in their honor. Though there is nothing they could do to saw the family’s home, the Schmeckpepers are thankful for the help in a time of need. It’s not the first time firefighters have come to their aid. Sept. 27, 1985, around 2 a.m., a fire started in the family’s mobile home in Lot 2. The fire destroyed the home and killed Shirley’s two sons, James, 16, and Charlie, 12. The fire, Mathwig said, “brought them together as a family.” Shirley is a single mom who raised three boys and one daughter. She has worked with Shirley at Tina K’s and Hutton’s Café, business that occupied the restaurant currently known as Cindy’s Kitchen on East Commerce Drive. “They are such kind-hearted people. After everything they’ve been through, we just want to help,” Mathwig said. “They’ve been dealt a lousy hand in life and they deserve the help.”

county attorney. Lezlie Vermillion, deputy administrator in charge of Scott County Public Works, said the stability of the revenue is not guaranteed since frac sand mining is subject to the whims of the economy. Commissioner Joe Wagner of

Sand Creek Township said the amount of money the county will receive in mineral rights from the Great Plains mine will be much smaller than the much larger mine the county is considering farther north in Jackson Township. Bruce Malkerson and family owns that mine.

City Applying Again for Grant to Help Pay for Interchange by Dan Ruud If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again. So it goes. Only a few weeks after having its application denied for a Minnesota Transportation Economic Development Program (TED) grant to help fund an overpass at Highway 169 and County Road 3/Meridian Street

with access to 169, the Belle Plaine City Council last week gave staff the okay to submit another application to the state for the same project. Belle Plaine has been developing the plan for the overpass with access for several years.

Moving Day Volunteers relocated the Belle Plaine Food Shelf from leased space on the east side of Meridian Street to its new digs across the street, at 128 Meridian Street N. The food shelf opens tonight, 5 p.m. until 7 p.m., and will also be open Saturdays, 9 a.m. to noon. The food shelf’s board of directors purchased the former home of Belle Video from Dale Entinger earlier this spring.

Mystic Journey Closes After four years of doing business in downtown Belle Plaine, Mystic Journey closed last week. Mystic Journey provided “classes, services, products and gifts that aid in the development of one’s body, mind and spirit.” Owner Sarah Jaeger, who most recently operated the business at 109 North Meridian Street (the business started across the street), could not be reached for comment this week. But she did leave the following message and other information on Mystic Journey’s Facebook page: “After being a part of this community for four years, I

have made the difficult decision to close Mystic Journey’s doors. It has been an honor to be a part of this community for those four years. “Since day one of opening Mystic Journey, I have met such wonderful people. You have enriched my life with your presence. I will always be thankful that I followed my heart and opened Mystic Journey. I have grown and have seen growth within you, which makes it all worth it.” The building is owned by Tom Meger, who operates Golden Touch Jewelry next door. Meger said Yaeger’s lease was due to expire at the end of this month and that she chose not to renew it. He said he plans to advertise to lease out the approximate 1,700-square-foot space.

No Match for Hail Young field corn in Belle Plaine Township was no match for hailstones early Sunday morning (June 17). Soybeans also took a beating from a storm that pounded crops in northwestern Le Sueur County heading northeast into Scott County. A Belle Plaine Township farmer said his corn field looks like

someone took a machete to it. After an early start to the growing season, crops have been deluged by heavy rainfall and hailstones. Farmers are hoping for gentle rains and warm days the rest of the summer.

Dakota Gutzke and Zechariah Rathe (right) love playing lacrosse.

For Belle Plaine Boys, Lacrosse Could Be Their Sport of Choice

If Belle Plaine ever brings lacrosse to the community, Zechariah Rathe and Dakota Gutzke will no doubt be there ready to sign up. The pair cemented a passion for the increasingly popular sport earlier this spring. Rathe and Gutzke were members of Anoka/Ramsey/Maple Grove, a cooperate team of third- and fourth-grade boys from several west metro communities playing in the Minnesota Swarm’s youth box league (YBL). Unlike YBL teams that were not accepting boys from outside their respective communities, the north suburbanites welcomed the Belle Plaine pair. Despite its larger-than-most roster, the Anoka/Ramsey/ Maple Grove team gelled in time for the box league’s playoffs and advanced to the age group’s championship game, only to lose 4-3 to Edina. Gutzke scored a goal late in the first half to give his team the lead, 3-2. It didn’t take the boys long to fit in. They had experienced lacrosse during their phy-ed class at Oak Crest Elementary School. The introduction to lacrosse helped them quickly adapt to the passing requirements in the third- and fourthgrade league where a team’s players are required to pass the

ball four times before a shot at the opposing goal is permitted. The opening face-off resembles a scrum in a rugby match. The rest of the game is constant motion, especially when a change of possession allows a team on defense to transition to offense. “I like the action,” Rathe said as his team prepared to face Edina in the box league’s championship game last month. “It’s a lot of fun,” Gutzke said. The Rathe family has been watching lacrosse for several years. Before moving to Belle Plaine years ago, the family lived in Oregon and the sport is popular there. Zechariah has played ice hockey within the Le Sueuer-St. Peter community program. Lacrosse was an easy transition. Zechariah’s parents hope more young athletes in Belle Plaine will take a liking to the sport. The players wear heavy padding on their upper bodies as well as a helmet with face shield. Players can use their sticks to try to slow down opposing players, but only on the padded areas. Gutzke took to lacrosse easily. His father signed him up for the team just before the registration deadline. “He’s loved it ever since,” said

Shane Gutzke, Dakota’s father. To the uninitiated, lacrosse is the oldest known sport in the United States. Its origins trace back to a game Native Americans played. But it is one of the fastest-growing sports and has been added to area high school sports offerings, particularly in larger suburban school districts. Today, the game is a hybrid between field hockey, soccer and ice hockey. Each team has five players and a goalie. Box lacrosse is played within the confines of an ice hockey rink where field hockey is played on a soccer field. At the high school and college level, lacrosse is played on a soccer field.

His First Musky Austin Eyrich, 8, a student at Chatfield Elementary School in Belle Plaine, recently caught his first-ever Musky on a Carver County lake. Austin, the son of Josh and Renee Eyrich (Josh is pictured with Austin), was using an Orange Rapala lure given to his father by Austin’s greatgrandpa. The fish measured in at 40 inches.

Sibley County Moving to Hire First Administrator

Be Prepared Ham radio operator Mike Castor of Henderson was one of a handful of local volunteers participating in the annual emergency communications field day Saturday and Sunday (June 23-24) from the Sibley County Emergency Management Trailer. Powered by a generator and hand-made antennas, ham radio operators like Castor and Don Burgess of Green Isle, the National Association for Amateur Radio Minnesota section emergency communications coordinator, use the annual field day to make connections with other ham radio operators around the world in preparation for a disaster that could knock out traditional communications.

After about a decade of talking about hiring its first-ever administrator to lead staff and support the county board, Sibley County commissioners are finally moving forward with the proposal. Last week, county commissioners voted unanimously to hire former Springsted & Assoc. and its senior vice president David Unmacht, former Scott County and Belle Plaine city administrator, to lead a committee process intended to hire a county administrator by Jan. 1, 2013. The company’s services will cost Sibley County up to $17,250. Commissioners Bill Pinske of Arlington and Jim Swanson of Gaylord will serve on the committee. Its work will begin later this summer. “This is a preliminary plan to see how it would be done and the cost to the county. We aren’t following the leader, but we are the only county around without an administrator,” said Commissioner Harold Pettis of Gibbon, the county board’s chairman. The new position will be incorporated into Sibley County’s 2013 operating budget. Commissioners will create that budget during work sessions

over the summer. The adminis- told the board a good administrator’s pay and benefits is esti- trator should be able to pay for mated to cost around $100,000. the salary and benefits.

Just Passing Through A few dozen antique tractors passed through downtown Belle Plaine early Saturday afternoon as part of Henderson’s 11th annual Tractor Ride. The ride began at the Le Sueur County Pioneer Power Showgrounds and continued through the Union Hill and Belle Plaine area en route to Henderson’s Sauerkraut Days festivities. The slow-moving processional was scheduled to arrive in Belle Plaine at about 11:15 a.m. but it wasn’t until the early afternoon that the machines started turning the corner at the Main and Meridian streets intersection. Only a sprinkling of people were out and about in the downtown area at the time to watch the processional pass through.

Bar-B-Q Days Coin Hunt Underway Mary Ann Gill Grand Marshal of Parade The first clue for the 2012 Bar-B-Q Days Medallion Hunt is published below. Additional clues, if necessary, will be published in the July 4 and 11 Heralds. The same rules apply as last year. The search area includes all of the Belle Plaine city limits northward to the railroad tracks (the coin will not be north of the tracks). A map of the city limits can be found on the city’s Web site at www.belleplainemn.com. The medallion is located on public property and is not more than 6 feet off the ground. It is not on the Historical House property or inside Tiger Park baseball field. Those searching on foot are encouraged to use the tunnel to cross Highway 169. The medallion is about 2 inches in diameter and has "Belle Plaine Bar-B-Q Days" inscribed on it. The prize for finding it is $100 in Belle Plaine Bucks. If you find it, call Tom Meger at

Thirty Years Ago This Week

Greg Engfer and Paul Johnson.

90 Years Ago (1922)

Just Clowning Around The Minneapolis Aqua Jesters would highlight the 1982 Grandstand Variety Show at the upcoming Bar-B-Q Days celebration in Belle Plaine. The Aqua Jesters, two of the clowns are pictured above, were being sponsored by Bridgeman’s Ice Cream parlors. The group consisted of people from all walks of life who donated their time to the art of clowning. The Aqua Jesters was formed in 1946 and had about 100 members. They performed 12 months of the year, visiting shut-ins, the elderly, mentally retarded, the physically handicapped – and themselves. The Aqua Jesters would be performing prior to the queen coronation the Sunday night of Bar-B-Q Days. The Bar-B-Q Days treasure coin was in hiding. It was worth $50 to its finder. The Rev. Roger Lechtenberg, the new pastor at Our Lady of the Prairie Catholic Church, liked to fish. And although he enjoyed the angler hobby during his free time, he was content to “fish for souls.” Father Roger arrived in Belle Plaine in late June and offered two masses over that weekend. He replaced Father Hugolinus, who left for his new duties in Texas, and Father Ronald, who would become an associate pastor in Missouri. The strawberries were still clinging to the vine at Kornder’s Berry Farm outside of Belle Plaine, but they likely wouldn’t be around for much longer as the season was winding down. The Borough Bowl was burglarized that Thursday afternoon. The burglar(s) entered the office although the door was locked, apparently entering through the ceiling. There were suspects in the case, according to Police Chief Rod Peddycoart. About $1,700 was stolen from the safe, according to owner Dick Hart. The Belle Plaine City Council was considering appointing a local Cable TV Board. A recent poll held in Belle Plaine found little demand for the installation of cable TV in Belle Plaine, but a few residents had made inquiries about the possibility of setting up a local system. The Belle Plaine town baseball team defeated Chaska 7-5. Terry Knop pitched the distance in notching the win on the mound. He also had a team-high three hits at the plate.

60 Years Ago (1952)

A large turnout was expected at the big 4th of July celebration. A full schedule of events was planned – baseball games, children’s parades, races, a horseshoe contest, bingo, band concert and fireworks. An early-morning fire de-

stroyed a barn on the Bernard Cemensky farm located one mile south of St. Thomas. Mrs. Wm. Juni of Jordan died at the New Prague hospital. She was 63 years old. Auxiliary Bishop J. Byrne confirmed 15 children at Sacred Heart Church. Members of class were Joan Ciminski, James Daly, Audrey Devine, Thomas Diers, Juliann Engfer, Mary Jo Fogarty, Sharon Hughes, Yvonne Hughes, Mary Rose Lawrence, Margaret Mahoney, Joan McCormick, Michael McNaughton, Robert Murphy, Joseph O’Brien and Richard O’Brien. Funeral services for Charles Bliss, 71, former resident of Keystone, were held at his home in Lingerwood, N.D. Construction of the new parsonage for St. John’s Lutheran Church started. A two-story house was to be built on the site of the old parsonage, which had been sold to August Stier and moved one block south of the church near Voss Produce. Several hundred members of farm families and others from Carver, Scott and Hennepin counties were expected to study soil conservation from the air during half-hour airplane flights from the Flying Cloud Airport. Tickets for the flights were $3.50 each. Officers were elected at the annual meeting of the Scott County Red Cross. Reelected officers were Mrs. Mayme Schroeder, Shakopee, chairman; Mrs. William Breimhorst, Jordan, vice chairman; W.B. Schroeder, Shakopee, secretary; and Miss Isla Lindmeyer, Shakopee, treasurer. Dr. H.F. Peternell was elected grand knight of the Knights of Columbus. George Kartak was named deputy grand knight, John McCue recording secretary, Ray Theis chancellor, Art Huber treasurer, Joe Pieper advocate, Larry Oelfke inside guard and Joe Fogarty outside guard. Rev. William F. Tinge, pastor of Redeemer Lutheran Church,

officiated at the marriage of his daughter, Grace Mae, to Robert Berg at Immanuel Lutheran Church in Princeton. The never-ending rainfall that soaked the area most everyday for two weeks brought the Minnesota River to near flood stage. Miss Lois Dahlke, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. H.C. Dahlke, became the bride of Gerald C. Scott, son of Mr. and Mrs. Oswin Scott of East Union. Belle Plaine moved back to the top of the league with victories over New Prague and Le Sueur. The Tigers were now two games ahead of the next team, New Prague, in the Northern Division and were tied for first place in the overall league standings with Montgomery and St. Peter. Two home runs by manager Gene O’Brien and one-hit pitching for five innings by Paul Keup and no-hit pitching by George Bodmer for the remaining four innings brought victory to the Tiger camp when the home team club measured New Prague 5-1. Home runs by Jerry Miller and Rollie Seltz brought the Tigers back into the win column. The victory was won at Le Sueur when the Tigers topped the Green Sox 11-6. Lefty Schultz threw a no-hit, no-run game against the Waterville Peewees to win 5-0. His team also beat the Le Center Peewees 11-1. Players on the VFW Midget team were Roger Martin, Roger Hoelz, Phil Hespenheide, Gerry Meyer, Larry Hartman, Dan (Lefty) Schultz, George Hoelz, Stanley Effertz, James Bahr, Jim Buesgens, Dick Lynch, Jim Daly, Don Maus, Larry Martin,

The auto was definitely winning out. A count of the vehicles parked in town on a Saturday showed 160 cars and one buggy. Mrs. Julia Simonet was back from Vermillion, Alberta, for a visit with her folks, the Fogarty family. In Minneapolis took place the marriage of Rose Terry, daughter of Mrs. Ellen Terry, formerly of this community, to J.M. Marxen. The was no July 4th celebration in Belle Plaine that year. Many local folks took in the program at West Union. On June 27 took place the marriage of Robert O’Connell of St. Thomas and Miss Margaret Benzick of Lexington. Rev. and Mrs. Haupt began their custom of spending a portion of the summer at one of the northern lakes. Henry Mahlmann, a native of Blakeley Township, died at his home in Plato at the age of 68. He had moved to Plato 20 years preceding his death. Henry H. Gruetzmacher, 34, former Belle Plaine boy, met his death while fishing on a lake in South Dakota. The boat used by the fishing party filled with water and the occupants had to jump. Mr. Gruetzmacher could not swim. Remains were brought to Belle Plaine and the funeral was held from St. John’s Lutheran Church. Cutting of rye on the Belle Plaine prairie started the first week of July. The crop was described as excellent. Reuben Frank was taking a motoring trip through northern Minnesota and the Dakotas. When someone threw the barrel of an old musket into a rubbish pile and set fire to the pile, Jerry Logelin chanced to have his have his back turned to the fire and was about 20 feet away. His back was peppered with about 150 bird shot, some of which penetrated deeply. The old musket barrel happened to have powder and shot in it. The bus line that had been started from Mankato to the Twin Cities immediately had patronage beyond the capacity of the equipment. There generally was no passenger space when the bus reached here.

120 Years Ago (1892)

The river was running over the cutoff for the third time that year. The Fourth was celebrated in Belle Plaine, St. Thomas and St. John’s. Main events at the local and St. John’s programs were the horse races, all entries being by local farmers. A daring train robbery was attempted on this line of the Omaha. Two masked men climbed over the tender with guns and ordered the engineer and firemen to bring the train to a halt, which they did a mile from St. Peter. Then they made the engineer call the express messenger to the door and made him captive. The robbers found nothing in the safe. Only one shot was fired, that at a brakeman who wasn’t hit. A reward of $3,000 was offered for the capture of the robbers. Shell-game operators with a circus at Shakopee cleaned up $1,000. The biggest loser was a man who bet $350.

Memorial Service Letter to the Editor Planned for Marie Dear Editor: Geronime Shim Marie Geronime Shim, who worked for the Belle Plaine School District for a quarter of a century before retiring in 1972, died Nov. 2, 2011 in Le Sueur at age 102. Many of those years were spent in Belle Plaine as principal of the elementary school here. A memorial service for Marie will be held 11 a.m. June 30 at St. Joseph’s Church in Henderson. Lunch will follow. At the age of 98, some 35 years following her retirement, Marie was in attendance at the opening ceremony for new Oak Crest Elementary School on Sept. 10, 2007. She was also involved in Belle Plaine’s sesquicentennial observance during the 2004 Bar-B-Days.

SCHS Research Library Open House July 12

I love to live in Belle Plaine. It is a very friendly town. But on Thursday, it was really proven to me again. I stopped by Kwik Trip to make a purchase. When I looked in my purse for my wallet, I accidently had taken it out of my purse. I told the cashier that I would have to come back. A customer in the store heard my dilemma and stepped up and paid my bill! I did not know her. But I want to tell her I really appreciate that and God Bless! Leona Schlingmann

Farmers Market Corner A threat of storms kept vendors and customers home at last week’s Belle Plaine Farmers Market. There’s a definite change in the weather this week though, so bring everyone down to the farmers market today (Wednesday). Next week the market will not be held due to the celebration of Independence Day. A lot of produce is showing up at the market. Radishes, lettuce, onions and peas are still on the list, as well as summer squash and beets. Grilled vegetables are yummy and will add a special treat to your holiday plans. Cut the summer squash lengthwise, slice some beets, cover with olive oil and some favorite spices and grill for about 20 minutes turning them once. The beets will be almost

candied and even the kids will like them. There are lots of butterflies and hummingbirds around looking for tasty flowers. As you add to your perennial gardens, be sure to plan for flowers to bloom throughout the growing season. It’s always fun to see the changing of colors during the season and the birds and bees will be happy, too. The Belle Plaine Farmers Market is held Wednesdays at Court Square Park May through October from 3:30 to 6:30 p.m. Vendors wishing to sell homemade and/or homegrown products are welcome. If you have a talent you would like to share, we invite you to throw down a hat and perform at the market. For more information, contact Lisa at 952-873-5665 or Diane at 952-873-2467.

But the plan has not fared well in various applications for state and federal funding. The latest application is to the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development (DEED), which is accepting applications for capital projects that are eligible for some of the $47.5 million that became available at this year’s legislative session. According to Belle Community Development Director Trisha Rosenfeld, funding will be available for projects “having a useful lifespan of at least 10 years.” Applicants can request funds for up to 50 percent of eligible capital costs for a project and must show evidence of matching funding support from nonstate government sources. That means, if approved, Belle Plaine would have to come up with some $5 million of the estimated $10 million cost to build an overpass at Highway 169 and County Road 3/Meridian Street with access to 169, something the council acknowledged that without considerable help from Scott County, would be difficult to come up with but not impossible. “I’m in favor of applying,” said Council Member Cary Coop, adding that if Belle Plaine got an overpass with access to Highway 169 at that location, more land would be developed for businesses, which in turn would bring jobs. On April 16, the council authorized an expenditure not to exceed $9,950 for the city engineering firm of Bolton and Menk to develop and submit an application for the TED grant. City Engineer Joe Duncan said much of the information gathered and processed for that application will be used in the DEED application, with some modifications. The deadline to submit the application was Tuesday after this edition of the Herald went to press. Belle Plaine City Administrator David Murphy said “only some staff time” is the city’s expense for this latest grant application.

The Minnesota Valley Electric Cooperative (MVEC) Board of Directors welcomed three new faces and returned two incumbents following elections at the 75th annual meeting and member appreciation event on Wednesday, June 13. In District I, Brent Lawrence of Prior Lake received a twoyear term, while incumbent Tom Wolf of Prior Lake returns with a three-year term. In District II, Bill Heinlein of Chanhassen was elected to take the place of Director Gordy Bates of Green Isle, who has retired after 22 years of service. In District III, Fran Barten of New Prague joins the board of directors with a two-year term, while incumbent Bob Hauer of New Prague received a threeyear term. A total of 3,967 MVEC members – or 12.6 percent – voted in this year’s election, either by mail or onsite at the meeting. Nearly 1,400 members and their guests turned out at the Scott County Fairgrounds in Jordan to learn more about the cooperative and to enjoy an evening of food, entertainment, children’s activities, exotic animals and prizes. General Manager Roger Geckler’s annual presentation focused on highlights from the past year, including ranking among the most efficient distri-

bution systems in the country, receiving a $1.6 million grant from the Department of Energy for smart grid research, saving members more than $14 million since 2007 due to purchasing wholesale power from two separate providers, successfully launching the Pay as you Go pre-pay program, and scoring higher than other utilities in the annual American Customer Satisfaction Index survey. In honor of MVEC’s 75th anniversary, Tom Graham, MVEC director for 29 years, recounted the cooperative’s story through photos and recollections. “I’ve been on the MVEC Board for over one-third of its existence.

B.P. School Board OKs Budget Hike for 2012-13

Woman Assaulted After German Day Festival

A Belle Plaine man whose sexual advances toward a woman were rejected allegedly assaulted her as she walked away from the German Days festivities downtown early Sunday morning. Norman Alexander Drake Zink is charged with third-degree assault causing great bodily harm. He appeared in Scott County District Court to face the felony charge June 22. An omnibus hearing is set for July 11. According to the criminal complaint, Zink, 21, approached a woman just after 2 a.m. Sunday as she walked eastward along East Main Street near Chestnut Street. The complaint states he inappropriately touched her. The woman, a 32-year-old New Hope resident, rejected his ad-

vances, the complaint states. Belle Plaine Police Chief Tom Stolee said the woman and Zink have not met before and that the alleged attack was a random incident. “The victim was just walking away from the downtown when approached by the intoxicated suspect,” Stolee said. The woman walked across the street trying to get away from Zink. The complaint states he sprinted across the street and “punched her twice in the mouth.” The woman hit him back in self-defense. The complaint says Zink forced her to the ground and punched her once more in the mouth. The woman went to the fire station to seek medical help. Firefighters were there after returning from a call for medical

help. She required nine stitches to close the cut on her upper lip. Police arrested Zink downtown. Officers are aware of who he is from prior contacts,” Stolee said. Unable to meet the court-imposed bail -- $1,000 cash or $10,000 bond -- Zink was still in the county jail when he made his first court appearance June 19. Belle Plaine Police are familiar with Zink. He has been convicted on 11 charges that include open bottle and possession of a small amount of marijuana, theft and receiving stolen property in 2009, tampering with someone else’s motor vehicle and second- and fourth-degree assault in 2011. He is currently on probation from a 2011 assault conviction.

The Belle Plaine School Board approved an operating budget for next year that includes a dip into reserves during the year. It also OK’d spending from its other major funds. The district’s approved general fund – the fund from which its daily expenses and salaries are paid – calls for $13.87 million in spending in 2013, an increase of 2.9 percent. The spending increase is against $13.43 million in revenue. The district expects its revenue will increase by about 14 percent next year. About $11.6 million of the general fund’s $13.5 million in revenue comes in the form of per-pupil and other state aids. It reflects a $50 per student hike to $5,224 per student. Local taxpayers contribute $1.13 million through the excess levy voters approved. The district expects 1,600 students in 2012-13 -- 86 more than at the start of the 201011 school year and 100 more than at the start of the 2008-09 school year. The overwhelming majority of the general fund’s expenses – about $10.3 million are salaries and benefits for the district’s staff. Purchased services ($2.55 million), supplies and equipment ($983,912) and other expenses ($45,732) are included in the general fund spending. That difference will push the district to dip into its general fund undesignated reserves of approximately $2.06 million at the end of 2012. The district expects it will be at approximately $1.91 million at the end of 2013. The approved food service fund is expected to see $626,000 in revenue and $625,000 in expenses. The district expects the

Schiroo DFL’s Pick of Senate District 18 Delegates

fund’s balance will increase to $81,218 by June of 2013. The accepted community education fund will see $550,832 in revenue and $573,882 in expenses – a $23,050 deficit. The deficit will reduce the fund’s positive balance to $64,759. The approved debt service fund – the fund that pays the district’s outstanding bonded debt – will have approximately $3.25 million in income and $3.09 million in expenses in 2013. The debt service’s fund balance is expected to be at $854,059 by June of 2013.

Salary Hikes

The board also approved negotiated salary increases without discussion for top district officials, key staff and Superintendent Kelly Smith. The board approved an increase in Carol Lagergren’s 215-day contract. Using the increase teachers received, her annual salary was increased to $70,888. Jeff Heine, the district’s building & grounds director, will have his salary increased to $63,000 in 2012-13 and $66,000 the following year, an increase of 6.06 percent over two years. His salary has been frozen the past two years. The salary for the district’s activities director and junior high dean, Mindy Sparby, was increased to $71,400 for 2012-13 and $72,828 the following year, an increase of 5.24 percent over two years. She will also receive a $2,000 allowance for professional development in both years of her contract. The salary in the final year of Smith’s three-year contract was left undetermined

and open to negotiation. The board increased his salary from $132,000 to $135,000 – an increase of 1.82 percent. His salary has been frozen the past two years. The district is still negotiating a contract and salary with Nelson Ladd, its director of community education. The school district pays 70 percent of Ladd’s salary and the city pays the remaining 30 percent. In other action at its June 25 meeting, the Belle Plaine School Board: n Paid bills totaling $1,815,920.20. n Tabled consideration of spending $6,520 on directional signage. The signage is to help visitors to the community find school-related facilities. Suffering sticker shock at the $1,500 per-sign cost, directors wanted to know if the city sent the signs out for bidding to receive the lowest possible per-sign cost. n Approved the final reading of the district’s health & safety policy. n Approved the strategic planning visioning cards. The cards are intended to help directors track their progress toward meeting facets of the district’s strategic plan. n Approved approximately $1.8 million in cash-flow borrowing to cover revenue gaps as the state delays delivery of 40 percent of the district’s state aid. n Approved a literacy aid report, a plan to receive state aid by enacting a proposal aimed at making sure all Belle Plaine students are reading by the third grade.

Nellie Irwin, front-center, had a family photo taken on her 100th birthday on July 4, 1982. Included in the photo are family members from Belle Plaine, the Twin Cities and California.

Remembering Belle Plaine’s July 4th Birthday Girl 30 Years Later

There was a time many years ago that Belle Plaine as a community celebrated the Fourth of July actively and loudly. There were baseball games, children’s parades, races, horseshoe tournaments, bingo, concerts and other organized activities. Oh yes, and fireworks. A little over a half-century ago something else came along later in the month called BarB-Q Days, which many of the traditional Fourth of July-type festivities were carried over to. The Fourth of July became a far quieter day in Belle Plaine compared to past years. Then 30 years ago Belle Plaine decided to once again stage an organized celebration on July 4. The occasion was long-time resident Nellie Irwin’s 100th birthday on that day in 1982. The event included an oldfashioned picnic in North Park, where everything 100 years or older was recognized. The object was to make your family picnic as close to a late-1800s picnic as possible – clothes, food and transportation. No plastic spoons or grills. Of course, those who did not feel competitive were invited to come anyway, and bring steaks and grills to provide some contrast. Competitiveness, however, paid off for the Roman Barten family of Union Hill as they were the grand prize winners of a $100 war bond. The John Bailey family of Belle Plaine took second, while the Stock, Walsh, Elder and Tolzman families also won prizes. Nellie addressed the crowd at the church service on the Episcopal Church grounds that special Fourth of July, and the dress she wore for the occasion

was older than she was. It was a hand-me-down from a cousin when she was a young girl. Nellie said the last time she had worn the flower-print dress with a green sash and a lace collar was when she was about 12. Being as petite as Nellie was 88 years later, the dress fit. The following story was published in the June 24, 1982 Herald to promote Nellie’s upcoming century-hood and oldfashioned picnic, etc. Nellie Irwin will turn 100 July 4 and she thinks she has the secret to longevity. “I stay home and mind my own business.� Besides that, she said she also eats right and that contributes to her health. “I like pork hocks, sauerkraut and dumplings. I like a hot toddy once in a while,� said Nellie, who would add a little cinnamon or nutmeg to her drink. Nellie Irwin will be honored on her birthday July 4 with an old-fashioned town picnic, ice cream social, a service at the Episcopal Church of the Transfiguration, games, contests and probably what Nellie is looking forward to the most, a band. She wants the band to play “My Little Georgia Rose� and “Oh! Ebenezer� just like in the old days when Nellie used to attend square dances in Belle Plaine. Nellie was born in Jordan to Anna Martin and Frank Rosenborg. Her father was a Danish immigrant who worked as a carpenter. Nellie’s mother died of tuberculosis when Nellie was 11, and the young girl moved to Belle Plaine six months later. Her father had to return to Denmark to take care of family business, as his parents had also recently passed away. He

never returned to the United States, Nellie said. “I can still remember the day he left. He didn’t want to leave but sometimes you have to do things you don’t want to do,� Nellie said. So Nellie came here to live with her uncle Willis Martin, who had married Vy Irwin. Mrs. Andrew Chatfield, wife of Belle Plaine founder Judge Chatfield, also lived with the Martins. Grandma Chatfield made certain that Nellie’s life was kept on the straight and narrow, but that didn’t stop the young girl from going to square dances. “Oh, we had fun,� said Nellie, who wasn’t allowed to go to square dances until she was 16, but made up for the “lost time� she said. “I’d rather go to a dance than eat,� said the 82-pound Nellie. “We enjoyed our way of having a good time.� Nellie continued her dancing days until she started having children. Then, she said, “I did a different kind of dancing.� Nellie tried to teach the art of square dancing and two-stepping to a few others, including Charlie Townsend and Fanny Irwin. Townsend’s only problem in learning to dance was that “his feet were in his way,� Nellie said. Every dance had a banquet served at midnight, which cost only $1 per couple. Nellie said the food was “marvelous.� Nellie married Alexander Irwin, who was a trained lawyer but served as the Belle Plaine postmaster during the Woodrow Wilson administration. Nellie became the assistant post mistress, earning $60 a month. Alexander and Nellie had three children, Harriet and Robert, who are deceased, and Virginia (Mrs. Archie Kruger). Nellie was active in community events in Belle Plaine. She has served as secretary and president of the American Legion Auxiliary, and as matron and secretary of the Eastern county roads 26 and 116 in Star. Nellie was also an active Sharon Township and county member of the old Episcopal roads 24 and 114 in Lexington Church. Township. The county selected the intersections based on traffic counts and a study on the benefits weighed against the cost of installation. The utility company serving the area where the selected intersections are located will install the lights and bill Le Sueur County. The county will in turn use the federal money to pay the bill. Le Sueur County will also pay he cost of electricity.

Le Sueur County Will Use Federal Money for Intersection Lights The Le Sueur County Board recently accepted and approved the use of $65,000 in federal money for the installation of streetlights at rural intersections. The county will pay for 10 percent of the federal grant. County Administrator/Public Works Director Darrell Pettis said there are as many as 15 intersections that will benefit from the lighting. Two of the intersections are in the northwest corner of the county, at the intersection of

Lewd Messages, Child Porn Land Man in Jail

A Belle Plaine man was recently sentenced to 90 days in jail for sending child porn and vulgar messages to the 13-yearold who baby sits his children. Scott County District Court Judge Rex Stacy also sentenced David A. Wentworth to five years probation for the possession of child pornography and disorderly conduct charges. Wentworth could have been sentenced to 15 months in prison, but the harsher sentence was stayed. In exchange for county jail time, Wentworth, 31, must sub-

Nellie said times have changed in Belle Plaine, as she watched the robins and blue jays eat at the birdfeeder outside her room at the Lutheran Home. “All those old times, they’re gone,� she said. Belle Plaine now consists of a different type group of people with different ways than she knew. The old-timers, they’re all gone too, she said. The world has become more commercialized now than it was when she was younger. However, that’s “natural.� “It (the world) is modern,� she said. Nellie made many of her own clothes when she was young, and couldn’t go to a dress shop as women do now to buy a dress. But she thinks she may have the perfect outfit for the old-fashioned July 4 picnic. She has a dress that belonged to her cousin that was handed down to her. It fit her when she was about 10, but thinks it may fit now because she is so tiny. “I haven’t worn it lately,� she said. She also has a silk jacket that belonged to an aunt that she said she will most likely wear to the picnic. Nellie’s house was “exploded� a while back, she said, so she doesn’t have most of her old things anymore. As for food, she hopes that someone will bring old-fashioned pork and beans to the picnic. As far as what else is planned for the celebration, Nellie said she isn’t sure what to expect. “I wonder what they’re going to do,� she mused. “They’re going to put me on the spot,� she guessed. Nellie also said she doesn’t have a special speech prepared for the occasion. “I’ll say what comes to my mind,� she said. Maybe the band will play “My Little Georgia Rose.� Nellie lived to celebrate two more birthdays. She died Aug. 5, 1984 at the age of 102. There are eight grandchildren, 19 great-grandchildren and four great-great-grandchildren.

mit to random checks of his computer and lie detector testing. First, he must also pass a maintenance polygraph test. Wentworth can’t have contact with his own children until completing sex-offender treatment and can’t have unsupervised contact with children. Belle Plaine police began investigating Wentworth in April of 2010. He sent lewd texts and Facebook messages to the babysitter. When searching his computer, they found child porn images of a boy between 5 and 7 and girl around 13.

DNR Says Aquatic Invasive Species Violation Rates Are Unacceptable The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) has released some initial statistics from its increased aquatic invasive species patrol efforts. So far this year, the AIS violation rate among boaters is 20 percent. “The majority of violations could have been avoided if people had taken the time to change their routine when leaving lakes and rivers, and com-



ply with AIS laws.� The extra patrols began May 12 and will continue through the summer. Through June 6, conservation officers had worked nearly 3,200 hours dedicated to AIS enforcement, making more than 20,000 combined law and education contacts. During this time, 193 criminal citations, 463 civil citations, 975 written warnings and 267 verbal warnings were issued.

Town Team Baseball

Town Tigers Fall to Henderson and Jordan, Rip New Ulm Kaiserhoff by Brad Lawson The Tigers had an up-anddown week, winning one game and losing two. The Tigers lost to the other Tiger crew (Henderson) and Jordan, but got back into the winning track Sunday night when they beat New Ulm Kaiserhoff 12-3. This week will be a busy one for Team Tigertown. BP played in Shakopee last night after this edition of the Herald went into press. This coming weekend, the Tigers will play three games in three days – Friday night 7:30 at Le Sueur, Saturday 1 p.m. in Henderson and Sunday a 6 p.m. home game against Chanhassen. Remember to check out www. bptigertown.com for the latest updates and stats. Also check out the Tigers on Facebook and Twitter for the latest posts and tweets. Mark down on your calendars for Thursday, July 5 for the RVL-DRS All-Star game in Chaska. The Tigers hope to send a couple of players to the game; check next week’s article to see who was selected. The June 17 rain out at Chanhassen has been rescheduled for Thursday, July 17, 7:30 p.m. at Chanhassen. Henderson 5, Tigers 3 It was a battle of the Tigers in a River Valley League game at Tiger Park. The better Tiger team on the night unfortunately was the visiting team from Henderson. Henderson beat the town Tigers 5-3 on an error in the top of the ninth. Shane Hofmann threw the first seven innings and left the game with the scored knotted up at three. Zac “Smiley� Dahlke finished off the game for Belle Plaine and received the loss without giving up an earned run. Travis Latzke and Dan Huber led the Tigertown Express with three hits apiece. Latzke also received credit for the only RBI on the night for Belle Plaine. The other two runs were scored on wild pitches. Jordan 7, Tigers 2 The Tigers took a short drive on 169 to neighboring Jordan to take on the Brewers. The Brewer/Tiger rivalry has been re-established now that the Brewers have been reclassified

into Class C after being in Class B for many years. Brad Lawson took the mound for the Tigers, throwing the first six innings and receiving the loss. Lawson gave up six runs (three earned) on six hits. Dan Huber came in for his season debut on the mound to finish off the game, and looked impressive. Rumor has it, according to Huber, that he can be the Tiger closer for the remainder of the year. Lawson led the Tiger hitting on the night, going 4-for-4 with one of the two RBI. Zac Dahlke came on to pinch hit for the Tigers in the ninth and got the other RBI on a “should I go, or shouldn’t I go� double. Tigers 12, New Ulm 3 The Tiger bats finally came alive in the 15th game of the year, tallying 18 hits and scoring 12 runs. Shawn “Poptart� Larson toed the rubber fresh off a trip to watch the Twins out East. Larson looked great, going seven innings and giving up three runs,

only one of which was earned. Larson gave the ball off to Zac Dahlke in the eighth, who came in and closed the door in the final two innings. Watch out Huber, Dahlke may be challenging you for the closer role. Travis Latzke led the hitting parade again, going 5-for-6 and was a home run shy of the cycle. Brad Lawson logged three hits for the Tigers, and Pat Schultz and Dylan Nyberg each got two hits on the night. 2012 Town Tigers Results and Remaining Schedule Apr. 27 vs. St. Ben.
