Council Okays Start of Plans for Next Year’s Street Project Next Step Taken to Pave Way for OLP Expansion by Dan Ruud This year’s city street and utility improvement project is nearing completion and next year’s is now on the drawing board. The Belle Plaine City Council Monday night unanimously authorized the preparation of the preliminary report for the 2014 street and utility improvement project.

Proposed for next year is the reconstruction of Raven Street between Meridian and Walnut streets, Chestnut Street between Park Street and Commerce Drive, and Cedar Street between Park Street and Commerce Drive. No cost estimate has been developed yet. The project is proposed to be funded with a combination of city funds, state

funds and assessments to benefiting property owners. City Administrator David Murphy told the council Monday that for the past two years city staff has started the planning process for the following year’s street work earlier so that the bids can go out in

Persistent Rains Will Leave Some Farm Fields Cropless With it being past the middle of June and some fields still saturated (as of Monday), it’s likely that a significant amount of agricultural acreage in the area will go unplanted this season. According to Ewald Gruetzmacher, nearly 3 inches of rain has fallen at his farm in June, that’s on top of almost 4 inches in May and over 5 1/2 inches in April. The dagger for some still unplanted acreage may have been last Wednesday’s downpours, which Gruetzmacher said the amounts from varied quite a bit locally. He said one of his gauges near Oakwood Cemetery measured 2.64 inches, while the gauge on his farm just across Highway 169 measured 1.64 inches. Some spots in Belle Plaine reportedly received between 3 1/2 inches and 4 inches.

“This is the wettest (spring) I can remember,” said Gruetzmacher, who has operated his Belle Plaine family farm for a number of decades. Gruetzmacher said he was able to get all of his corn planted but has 28 acres of soybeans (out of about 90 acres) that will not be planted. “What’s today – June 17? We’re just about at the end of the road,” Gruetzmacher said. He added that he has already decided not to plant the rest of his soybeans and will instead take the insurance buyout. He said he knows of other area farmers who have not gotten their entire crops planted and probably won’t. As of last week (before the latest heavy rains), the U.S. Department of Agriculture reported that nearly 3 million acres of

Minnesota’s cropland had not yet been planted. In southeastern Minnesota, it’s estimated that possibly 40 percent of the corn crop will not get planted. According to the USDA report for the week ending June 16, corn planting statewide moved ahead four percentage points to 94 percent planted. Soybean planting was 84 percent done. The statewide average for corn height (as of June 16) was 6 inches tall, compared to 22 inches last year and the average of 13 inches. Planting of small grains are nearly finished, according to the June 16 USDA report. Spring wheat emergence advanced 15 percentage points to 99 percent emerged. Alfalfa hay first cutting advanced 31 percentage points to 38 percent completed, compared with last year’s 86 percent and the average of 67 percent.

Oak Crest Elementary School was the scene of some school emergency-related simulated training drills for Belle Plaine police officers on Thursday.

Belle Plaine, Area Police Train for School Shooter on Rampage Belle Plaine police officers, guns drawn, chase a man they believe has possibly shot students or staff down a hallway at Oak Crest Elementary School. But there are no students in the building, no staff in the area. It’s a training exercise for skills police and school staff hope are never needed. Last week, the police department’s full-time officers, its investigator and chief spent three days in training at the Belle Plaine School District Center (the old junior high).

“I don’t gamble. I don’t play the odds. I’m not going to say it won’t happen here.”

-- Tom Stolee, Belle Plaine police chief

“We’re trying to be pro-active versus reactive,” said Belle Plaine Police Chief Tom Stolee. After the classroom work and some drills, the officers moved out to Oak Crest Elementary School Thursday to put classrooms lessons to the test.

Kevin and Cindy Berger to Lead Saturday’s Parade

by Dan Ruud Grand Marshals Kevin and Cindy Berger don’t know what their transportation for Saturday’s German Days Parade will be but if it was horseback they’d be plenty comfortable with that. And they own enough horses that their eight children could join them front and center. The Bergers, who have 18 horses on their 50-acre farm in Belle Plaine Township, are very much horse enthusiasts. “It’s a family thing. All the

kids grew up training and riding horses and going to competitions. They still do,” said Kevin, adding that the two biggest competitions they attend each year are the Western Saddle Club Association Championship and State Fair shows in St. Paul. Their eight children range in age from 30 to 5 years, Rachel being the oldest and Breanna

BPHS Graduate Paddles, Stands on Head in Water Sports Commercial I’m Jenn Bast and I’m one of the water sports experts at Scheels. That is the closing line that Bast, a 2009 graduate of Belle Plaine High School, speaks in a new television and online commercial she’s featured in for the company she works for – Scheels All Sports in Eau Claire, Wis. The commercial was filmed, appropriately enough, on Lake Bastrop in Texas. Scheels is a privately held, employee-owned and operated sporting goods and entertainment chain store headquartered in Fargo, N.D. Scheels operates two-dozen store locations in 10 U.S. states. Bast, the daughter of Kent and Rose Bast of Belle Plaine, has worked at the Eau Claire Scheels as a water sports expert since 2010. She attended the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire. While on the paddleboard, Bast narrates and demonstrates paddleboarding during most of the 30-second commercial. Bast said paddleboarding is the fastest up and coming water sport that uses a larger surflike board, where the paddler is standing and propelling them self using a large paddle similar to a large canoe paddle. Yoga has also become very popular on the boards throughout the Midwest. During the commercial, Bast said she became hooked on paddleboarding after her “second stroke.� She talks about the versatility of paddleboarding, which can be everything from general recreation to a fullbody workout. At one point in the commercial, Bast even stands on her head on the paddleboard. “Stand-up paddleboarding is a fun, easy and fast-growing water sport,� stated Bast in a Scheels newsletter. “I believe a stand-up paddleboard is the

Jenn Bast’s 2009 BPHS graduation photo perfect toy for everyone of all ages and all skill levels looking to have fun on the water.� Bast added that she has been paddleboarding for just a little over a year. “I started after a customer raved about how much fun it is and how it’s the perfect sport for doing so much on the wa-

ter . . . What fuels my passion for paddleboarding is seeing people use one for the first time and falling in love with it. I’ve seen some of the biggest smiles on people’s faces when they stand up on the paddleboard for the first time.� One of the biggest misconceptions about paddleboarding is that it may look difficult to some people. “My advice to beginners would be to never limit yourself. Let the board be stable and have confidence. The biggest mistake that beginners make is going into it thinking the board is unstable. Only the rider makes it unstable.� Beside paddleboarding, Bast has done demonstrations for various Wisconsin sports and adventure shows, including kayaking and biking. Bast’s paddleboard commercial can be viewed online by Googling “Jenn Bast Scheels commercial.�

Construction workers are preparing land just south of the intersection of highways 169 and 41 near Shakopee for a new recycling center. Its owners expect it will be one of state’s largest.

Dem-Con’s Recycling Business a New Face Along Highway 169 Heading north on Highway 169 and back again each day, Belle Plaine and area commuters have no doubt noticed the construction work on a site that once served a garden center and residential property. But now, those properties are part of Dem-Con’s new recycling facility just south of the intersection of highways 169 and 41 in Louisville Township. Earlier this spring, the Scott County Board approved a conditional-use permit that allows the longtime construction landfill operation to build and operate a 60,000-square-foot residential and commercial recycling facility. It is expected to be among the largest of its kind in Minnesota, according to its owners and operators, Jason Haus and Mark Pahl. Pahl’s family operated the landfill for years before entering into the recycling business in 1999. Dem-Con takes in as-

phalt shingles for recycling. The new recycling business, once operational later this year or early in 2014, will take in up to 60 tons per hour of cardboard and 20 tons an hour of co-mingled commercial and household recyclables. It is expected to draw haulers from much of southern Minnesota. The new business is projected to bring 20 full-time jobs to the area. The facility is on land leased to Malmborg’s Nursery the past two summers. The landowner, Bob Velander, sold the land back to the Pahl family.

The Yellow Apple Barn

The work at the Dem-Con facility isn’t the only construction work underway along Highway 169. Just north of Belle Plaine, near the junction of Highway

169 and Delaware Avenue (County Road 59), the Wagner family is expanding Jim’s Apple Barn. The addition adds about 2,800 square feet to the barn. It will house an inventory that is more about candy and other edibles and less about apples, said Robert Wagner, operator of Jim’s Apple Barn. Workers have been busy preparing the new space for the July 5 scheduled opening of Jim’s Apple Barn, its 35th year. The additional space has also prompted the Wagner’s to expand its parking capacity the past few years. Parking space is available for almost 300 vehicles. Wagner has contemplated paving the parking lot, but can’t without the blessing of the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, which controls the marsh and wetland west of Wagner’s property.

Jenn Bast, a 2009 graduate of Belle Plaine High School, demonstrates in a Scheels commercial how to have fun and stay fit while recreating on the water. The commercial can be viewed online by Googling “Jenn Bast Scheels commercial.�

School District, Teachers’ Union Open Contract Talks Negotiators from the Belle Plaine School Board and the Belle Plaine Education Association (BPEA) recently opened talks toward a new two-year contract that could approach $15 million. Negotiators for the school board and union representing the district’s 110 teachers will meet again July 8. Additional meetings will be scheduled later. Both sides are hoping for a quick and controversyfree completion to the contract talks. Monday (June 17), both sides exchanges their first set of financial proposals. The union proposed a series of wage and benefit enhancements worth an additional 10.56 percent to the value of the existing contract. The school board countered with proposed increases in wages and benefits that would add 3.58 percent to the worth of the existing contract. Emma KrumbEE’s (FOFSBM4UPSF

At their first meeting June 4, much of the opening round of talks on a contract for the 2013-14 and 2014-15 school years was geared toward setting up ground rules for the negotiations, establishing an early calendar for meetings and discussion on how a possible settlement should be reported to the public. The BPEA suggested reporting only new money added to the existing contract, a proposal Director Gary Steinhagen said he was uncomfortable with because most citizens would want to know how a settlement impacts the typical salary of the union’s members. Besides the financial component of a settlement, the teachers raised the idea of discussion of establishing paid time off (PTO) rather than a set number of days for vacation time and sick time. Bereavement time is a topic both sides want toY address. The BPEA are also seemingly interested in revis iting a requirement added two $0-03 years ago that work days lost to inclement weather or other unforeseen circumstances be made up. Superintendent Kelly Smith expects other topics will be addressed as the talks progress.

In January 2012, the BPEA overwhelmingly approved a $14.25 million agreement that The Wagner family has added almost 3,000 square feet to Jim’s Apple Barn along Highway included a 4.307 percent in- 169 just north of Belle Plaine. The additional space will provide more space for candy and crease in wages and benefits other goodies. for the union’s 106 members over the 2010-11 and 2011-12 school years. The June 4 meeting remained amicable, with the teachers’ chief negotiator, Randy Carlson, and school board chairman Matt Lenz wrapping up the initial get-together exchanging picks on which team they thought would win the NBA championship. Smith said the district is ready to bring forward a proposal containing a financial settlement on salary and benefits. He said school board negotiators await the BPEA’s first formal proposal. The two sides are negotiating without the Jan. 15 deadline and financial penalty for an approved contract, a deadline state lawmakers eliminated. Smith likes the deadline to keep the progress moving forward. • Learn the latest information “To my perspective, it’s good 2013 Baby Fair Schedule • 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. from the experts on pregnancy, to have a deadline with consebirth and parenting 9:00 – 9:45 Hospital Midwifery: Utilizing Natural Childbirth quences,â€? he said.

City Council

Klobuchar Addresses Senate Farm Bill

by Sen. Amy Klobuchar Whether it is a cold and wet spring, a punishing drought or foreign countries unexpectedly shutting down their markets to American products, Minnesota farmers and ranchers must contend with a wide range of unpredictable variables that can threaten their livelihood. The U.S. Congress should not be one of them. Unlike the forces of Mother Nature that brought us the poor planting weather this spring or the drought this past summer, lack of congressional action on the Farm Bill is entirely preventable. That’s why as a member of the Senate Agriculture Committee I worked with my colleagues to craft a five-year Farm Bill that passed the Senate with strong bipartisan support. The Senate Farm Bill builds on the successes of the 2008 Farm Bill, strengthening crop insurance, eliminating direct payments, reducing our deficit by $24 billion, promoting a strong energy title and protecting conservation and nutrition programs. The Farm Bill also includes important provisions I fought for to provide beginning farmers and ranchers greater access to crop insurance and more land for grazing, and to help protect pork and poultry producers from catastrophic losses. I also worked with North Dakota senators John Hoeven and Heidi Heitkamp to boost agricultural research, address the backlog of Rural Development loans, support the Rural Energy for America Program and enhance regional conservation efforts like those in the Red River Valley. To open up new markets to Minnesota producers, the Farm

Bill includes my provision instructing the U.S. Departments of Agriculture and Transportation to evaluate rural transportation, including “captive shipping,” to ensure that farmers and rural businesses can move their products as quickly and affordably as possible. Last year, America exported $136 billion in farm products resulting in a trade surplus of $32 billion. As the sixth largest agricultural exporting state, Minnesota contributed more than $6.8 billion in 2012. Finally, the new Farm Bill provides something very simple to Minnesota farmers and rural communities – certainty. It puts an end to the unpredictable and volatile federal farm policy that currently exists without a strong five-year plan. This is the second time in the last 354 days that the Senate has put forward a long-term Farm Bill that helps producers, consumers and our entire economy. Last year, the Senate passed the bill but the House of Representatives failed to act. I have heard from countless Minnesota farmers and ranchers who need the support and certainty that this bill provides, and if the House fails to act again, they do so at their own risk. Congressman Peterson has been working hard to move the Farm Bill forward in the U.S. House and I will work with him as he pushes the House leadership to take up and pass a fiveyear Farm Bill. Minnesota farmers are some of the hardest workers in the United States. They produce the highest quality, lowest cost food in the world, and they represent a proud part of our state’s heritage and history. Minnesota farmers deserve a Farm Bill, and I will not stop fighting until it is signed into law.

The city has received paint and primer from the Valspar Foundation through a Partners in Preservation grant. Crosby Construction of Belle Plaine submitted the only quote to do the work at a cost of $12,850, which will be paid for by funds from the city’s historical properties line item. *Unanimously authorized the purchase of a new computer server at a cost of $10,979, which includes equipment and labor. Staff reported that the computer server presently used at city hall is failing and in need of replacement. The purchase has been included in the city’s budget. *Unanimously approved a request by Haefner Enterprises to vacate the unimproved public street segments of Eagle and Elk streets between Forest Street and the Union Pacific

Railroad right-of-way. The purpose of the request is to “clean up” property boundaries in the vicinity of the various properties owned by the applicant. Community Development Director Chelsea Alger reported that staff reviewed the requests for the street vacations and saw no issues as the applicant has established improvements in both areas and neither currently serves as a public street. *Unanimously appointed Nathaniel Hvidsten as a member of the city’s design committee. He replaces Mike Doheny, who recently resigned. Hividsten’s term expires Jan. 31, 2015. He was the only one to submit an application. Hvidsten also serves on the city’s planning and zoning commission. The next regular meeting of the Belle Plaine City Council is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Monday, July 1 in the City Hall building at 218 North Meridian Street downtown.

In other business Monday night, the council unanimously approved a nonconforming expansion permit for Our Lady of the Prairie Church and School at 200 East Church Street. The council on May 20 approved the conditional use permit and site plan for the upcoming expansion of OLP but stopped short of okaying the onsite parking plan until further review. That review has since taken place and the parking plan was approved Monday. Based on the size and purpose of the expansion, staff reported that the required number of offstreet parking spaces is 72.

Thirty Years Ago This Week

Lake Krant’s Too much water for the storm drains backed water onto the sidewalk at Krant’s Bar and created a lake in the intersection on June 21, 1983. The water dispersed quickly after the rain stopped. Five deaths in three separate accidents in less than three weeks had Jordan residents uneasy over what family might be touched over the next by tragedy. The latest fatality occurred 6:15 p.m. that Friday when two teenagers riding on one motorcycle slammed into a telephone junction box near St. Joe, about five miles east of Jordan. Killed were Lee Arnold, 19, and Kevin Roberts, 18. On May 30, 7-yearold Jennie Blumberg of Lydia died in a crash that injured 10 people on the Shakopee hill. On June 4, Mr. and Mrs. Neil Flynn and Delbert Fahrenkamp were killed when their cars collided head-on on Highway 282 east of Jordan. It was wet in Belle Plaine that Tuesday morning (see accompanying photo). The rain started about 7:30 and kept on coming until about 9:30, and during that two hours, 2 1/2 inches of rain fell here. There was even more nearby. Some Jordan residents were claiming anywhere from 4.2 to 6 inches. A visit to Helena Township to view some flooded fields was not on the agenda for the Scott County Board that Tuesday. But then again, neither was Gerald VonBank. VonBank was a farmer in his mid-50s who stormed the meeting and demanded that the commissioners accompany him to view his flooded fields. But he didn’t put it that politely. “We don’t need your kind in office when you do this to the farmers,� he said as he shook his fist at the board. “I’m being hurt and it’s all because you people were too dumb to put in a decent culvert!� Commissioners tried to calm him down. “Come on Gerald, everyone is getting flooded today,� said Chairman Bill Koniarski (first district). “You can’t prepare for rains like this.� VonBank wouldn’t listen. “Don’t try to brush the taxpayers off. If I step on your feet, you’ll get hurt,� VonBank said. He quieted down after Koniarski and the other commissioners agreed to go view his flooded fields. Belle Plaine’s 13th annual Sidewalk Cookout would be held in Belle Plaine that coming Friday evening. About a dozen grills would be set up in the downtown area, including one huge cooker to barbecue a whole hog. The Western Union Band would perform from 6-9:30 p.m. on the downtown streets. The Belle Plaine Historical Society would be having a garage sale at the Sears store that coming Friday and Saturday. The Scott-Carver Economic Council, the local Community Action Council, reported that it distributed a total of 37,150 pounds cheese, 30,808 pounds of butter and 10,848 pounds of powdered milk in Scott and

Carver counties during the months of March and April. The Belle Plaine High School baseball team placed four players on the 1983 All-Minnesota River Conference team. They were senior Bryan Koepp, junior Jeff Larson, senior Erik Johnson and junior Jeff Miller. Jeff Fogarty received honorable mention. BPHS senior Mary Leonard was the Tigers’ representative on the 1983 All-MRC softball team. Michelle Malz was honorable mention. The Belle Plaine town baseball team got dropped on its heads twice that week, losing to Jordan 12-1 and Carver 10-0.

60 Years Ago (1953)

Mrs. Art Griesbach, mother of Harold Hene of Blakeley, died at the Gaylord hospital at age 71. At Columba’s Church, St. Paul, took place the marriage of Miss Rosemary Backes, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Paul Backes of Belle Plaine, to Edwin Varey, son of Mr. and Mrs. James Varey of Hampton. Many relatives and friends from the Jessenland community attended the funeral of Michael Doheny, who passed away after suffering a heart attack at the age of 73. Navyman Leo Joseph Albrecht, son of Mr. and Mrs. Leo M. Albrecht of Belle Plaine, and Miss Gloria Ann Stibal, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Ernest R. Stibal of Ottawa, Ill., were the principals in a naval wedding that took place in St. Michael’s Chapel, Naval Air Station, Barbers Point, Hawaii. A very large number of relatives and friends gathered at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Tillquist when they held an open house on the occasion of their 25th wedding anniversary. We were still without train service, and it was said it would be weeks before the Omaha railroad would get its bridges and track in condition. The worst washouts were in the vicinity of LeMars, Iowa. Mail service was being entirely supplied by truck. Rev. J. Janzig, former pastor of Redeemer Church in the German Settlement, died at his home in Monona, Iowa, to which place he had retired to after giving up his pastorate in this vicinity. He was in his 80s. A 24-hour rain set back all field operations. Damage to the hay crop was considerable. The river was likely to overflow into some of the lowlands again. River bottom farmers had been hit hard that year. John Adin Lang, formerly of East Union, died at the Lutheran

Home for the Aged at the age of 83. The marriage of Miss Rita Sullivan, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. James W. Sullivan of Le Sueur, to Dr. James H. Hessian, son of Mr. and Mrs. Urban Hessian of Belle Plaine, took place at St. Thomas Catholic Church. Rev. Donald Tomlinson, who had been assistant pastor and administrator of Sacred Heart parish, was transferred to Our Lady of Victory parish in Minneapolis. Henry B. Walker, 50, a native of Derrynane Township, died suddenly of a heart attack while at his Cabin near Cross Lake. Alvin Stromberg was fatally stricken with a heart attack at his home in Graceville at the age of 73. He was born in West Union. Belle Plaine won an extra-inning contest with New Prague the easy way when Jim Geske allowed four bases on balls in the 10th inning, walking in the winning run and breaking a 7-7 deadlock. Norb Schmitt had a homer and triple earlier in the game for Belle Plaine. One-hit relief pitching by “Minnow� Meyer and two home runs by Gene O’Brien made comparatively easy work of Belle Plaine’s 8-2 win over Le Center. Belle Plaine’s Legion baseball team opened its season with a 7-0 whitewash over St. Peter. Leo Engfer tossed the two-hit shutout and allowed only two walks.

90 Years Ago (1923)

There was no July 4 program planned in Belle Plaine that year. Gertrude Neubeiser finished her course at McPhail School of Music, and her brother Ben received a bachelor of science degree at the University and would continue on with the medical course. Mrs. Ernst Schwentker of Belle Plaine and her sister, Mrs. Augusta Kohen of Minneapolis, left on a trip to Germany and Poland. In the latter country they had not seen in 30 years. Roundtrip fare from Minneapolis to Berlin was $302. There was a big turnout at the annual picnic given by the Luther League of the German Settlement. C.W. Mahler of the St. Paul Dispatch-Pioneer Press was in Belle Plaine routing a Sunday tour of the St. Paul motorists, coming the Scott County side of the river, crossing at Belle Plaine and returning by way of East Union. Mr. Mahler had a special interest in Belle Plaine as he was the son of the senior member of the pioneer Belle Plaine firm of Mahler & Spicer. Corn and grain were beaten down in a severe hailstorm that hit the district directly north of Belle Plaine, doing heaviest damage on the Pelz, Duffy, Corcoran and Claus Anderson farms. Strawberry growers had a very

good crop, and prevailing sale was at 15 cents a box. Jake Sawyer, Jessenland resident, died of a disease pronounced cancer of the brain. Belle Plaine won its fourth straight game with Mellgren pitching, beating New Prague 4-0. The village of Blakeley was greatly elated with the clearing of all obstacles to the construction of its river bridge, $50 now being available. Addie Daly, 62, a pioneer school teacher in this vicinity, died, and following funeral services at Sacred Heart Church, interment was in St. John’s Cemetery. She was born in Faxon Township, daughter of William and Ellen Daly. At Trinity Lutheran Church took place the marriage of Miss Anna Krueger, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Herman Krueger, to Helmer Krohn of New Prague. Al Streitz, Jordan police officer, engaged in an exchange of shots with three prowlers, who fled in darkness leaving behind a stolen Buick. Mrs. Swante Hall celebrated her 76th birthday at her home in San Francisco Township with a gathering of her family and friends.

120 Years Ago (1893)

P.A. Shaughnessy was appointed postmaster at Assumption. E.E. Chard and Bernard Kirchoff rode their bicycles to Minneapolis one afternoon, returning the next day. A citizens committee got up a July 4th program. There was to be $75 for horse races, a dancing pavilion was to be built, and fireworks contracted for. Then it was learned the band had contracted to play at a celebration elsewhere, as had also the Chamberlain orchestra. The committee went ahead anyway. A farmhand on the John Leibbrand farm in St. Lawrence contracted a number with the plea he needed six dollars to get a trunk from the Jordan express office. When a number of donors chanced to compare notes, they determined the farmhand was a sharper. They caught up with him in Belle Plaine and forced refunds all around.

Letter to the Editor Dear Editor, As a child, I remember watching the TV sitcom, “The Honeymooners� with my family. One line Ralph Kramden used to address his frustration with his wife, Alice, was, “One of these days, Alice, Pow! Right to the moon!� And, of course, we would all laugh. With more and more domestic violence being exposed in family units, Ralph’s line from the past is not funny anymore, but alarming! Physical, sexual, emotional, and spiritual abuse is not something at which to laugh. It is dangerous. It is destructive. It is deadly to the physical, emotional and spiritual state of those abused. It is contrary to everything that Jesus teaches us. 85% of those abused are women and children, 15% of those abused are men. Just in this month alone there have been countless reports of abusive relationships that have ended in the murder of those being abused. The abused reduces all those that he/she abuses to a commodity, something that he/ she uses, and controls. The victims of abuse often find their personalities systematically being erased by the abuser, sometimes being erased to the point of not existing in any public record, and in extreme cases being murdered. Abuse is not

just something found among the poor, unlearned, and the lower classes. Rather abuse is found among the rich, the successful, the celebrity, Bing Crosby, Ann Bancroft, and Kirby Puckett being terrible perpetrators of abuse. There are examples in scripture that point out the evil of abuse, Sarah’s treatment of Hagar in Genesis, and the rape of Susannah in the Book of Daniel. Jesus teaches us that the “Power Over� relationship of the abused over a victim is not what God intends. Jesus shows us that God’s relationship with all humanity is one of “Power With� exemplified by Jesus’ Incarnation when all that is Divine is united equally with all that is human. The relationship of humans is to mirror the mutual relationship of God with humanity. If you are being abused or know of anyone being abused, it is necessary that help is found. In New Prague, since 1983 there have been 549 reported cases of domestic abuse, 31 cases reported in 2012. In Scott and Carver County, call the Southern Valley Alliance for Battered Women (SVABW), at 952-8734214. If anyone is in imminent danger, call 911. Deacon Bob Wagner SVABW Board Member

St. Thomas The mass schedule for St. Thomas is July 13 at 5 p.m. with Fr. Hessian, and Saturday, July 27 at 5 p.m. with Fr. Burns. There was “a good crowd” in St. Thomas for mass on Saturday. Father Hessian officiated, James Oak served, Tom Connelly said the readings, Jim Oak and Jim Walker were Eucharistic ministers, Andy Oak and Bob Connelly were the ushers. St. Thomas choir was accompanied by organist Mary Reibel Swartz. Wouldn’t have missed mass in St. Thomas for the world but there was mass at St. Annes’s in Le Sueur for Jack Burns, some of us went there. Mass of Christian Burial for George Ruhland of Montgomery was Thursday, June 13 at Holy Redeemer Catholic Church, with burial at the historical St. John’ Catholic cemetery, west of Montgomery. Our sympathies to his siblings, Bill, Dick, Ken, Mike, Sue and Diane and to George’s loving wife, Darlene; their daughters, Michelle, Laura, Melissa and their families. George was a gentle man and always a perfectionist at his jobs and woodworking crafts, his home and his family. George is a brother-in-law of Barb Burns Ruhland who grew up in St. Thomas. The Windmill Man was larger than life. We’re going to miss Joe Koenig dancing at the Pioneer Saloon during Dozinky, singing his trademark song the famous “Second Week of Deer Camp” at Union Hill, his outgoing personality, genuine interest in others. Joe and Marcella made their home on a farm in Derrynane Township along County Road 19, where the first Timothy Burns (18301872), from County Cork,

Ireland, lived after coming to America. Behind every great man, there’s a woman. Our sympathies to Marcella, his wife for 70 years and their family. We’ve been missing Shannon Halloran at Etlin’s. Eddie and Denise Halloran’s daughter was one of 43 students New Prague and TCU High School that left last Wednesday, June 5 for a 19 day trip to Germany, Austria, and Switzerland.Wishing them all a happy and safe trip, they’ll be home on the June 24. Glenn and Judy Loewe, of rural Henderson, hosted an Open House celebrating their 50 years of wedded bliss at the Ney Center on June 15.  Glenn is a son of Ed and Hilda Maltz Loewe, and grandson of Anna Loewe Cogdale, who lived for many years southwest of St. Thomas across from the Jack Burns farm. Around 40 St. Thomas sports fans gathered at the St. Thomas Sportsmans Park and enjoyed a scenic bus ride to and from the Twins game vs. the Detroit Tigers Sunday, Father’s Day.  Twins lost, but fun was had by all. Many celebrated Father’s Day with their Dads here in St. Thomas and if celebrating with our Dad wasn’t possible we partied with a husband, a grandpa, a brother and/or a son, like Vangie Burns, who joined Barney and Jean Burns and their families at their home.   Happy 70th Birthday to Pat Anderly. Pat is celebrating at the Event Center in Henderson on June 23 from 2-4. Pat’s lovely wife is St. Thomas’s own Mary Brown Anderly. Happy belated Anniversary to Eddie and Denise Halloran, who were married on June 15, 1990 at St. John’s in Union Hill, and many happy more.

Tractor Ride Seeks Riders It’s time to get out the classic tractors again! The 12th annual Henderson Tractor Ride will be held on Saturday, June 29. The ride will begin at 9 a.m., leaving from the Le Sueur County Pioneer Power Showgrounds. Classic and collector tractors of all colors will travel north and east through St Thomas and to Union Hill for a pit stop at Ryan and Dana’s Union Hill Bar. The riders will then trek northwest through Belle Plaine and Blakeley, and then through Jessenland, arriving for a grand parade down Henderson’s Main Street at 1:30

p.m. The ride is held in conjunction with Henderson Sauerkraut Days, so after the ride, the participants can participate in one of the many ‘Kraut Days festivities, including great food and music. For the past nine years, tractor riders and spectators have enjoyed this event and this year’s ride promises to be better than ever. The cost of the ride is $20, which includes a cap and lunch at Bender Park. There is always room for more entries. For information contact Tom Graham at 507-248-3515 or grahampr@ frontiernet.net.

Family and friends attended.

Nick Zurn and Katelyn Zurn have completed Lifeguard Classes and now are both lifeguards at the Belle Plaine pool. In last week’s Belle Plaine Herald 60 years ago column, it stated that Ludwina Huss, daughter of John and Martha Huss, became the bride of Gerald Giesen, son of Matt and Barbara Giesen, at St John’s Catholic church in Union Hill. Joe and Evelyn Scheffler of St Patrick celebrated 65 years of marriage last week. We wish them many more happy years. Humor Corner: Walking into the bar, Mike said to Charlie, the bartender, “Pour me a stiff one-just had another fight with the little woman”. “Oh yeah?” said Charlie, “and how did this one end?” “When it was over,” Mike replied, “she came to me on her hands and knees”. “Really.” said Charlie, “Now that’s a switch! What did she say?” She said, “Come out from under the bed, you chicken!”

the youngest. The others are Brian, 26, Travis, 23, Becca, 20, Megan, 16, Michael, 14, and Emily, 11. There are three grandchildren. Kevin and Cindy own and operate Berger Interiors in downtown Belle Plaine. Kevin has been in the flooring industry for over 30 years, beginning his career as a flooring installer for various companies. In 1990, Kevin and Cindy decided to open a retail flooring store at 118 North Meridian Street in Belle Plaine, the present-day location of Deb’s Embroidery Business. They eventually expanded the business to both flooring and furniture and in 1999 moved to their present location at 121 South Meridian Street. Kevin grew up in Blakeley Township, where his father owned the Hillside Tavern for a number of years. Kevin attended school in Belle Plaine until the eighth grade, when the family moved to Jordan. It was while attending Jordan High School that he met Cindy.

In New Prague, July 4th Fireworks Show Fizzles Away If Independence Day pyrotechnics are your thing, apparently New Prague won’t be the place to go. The group that ran the show for 36 years stepped away from staging it after the 2012 display. No other organization has stepped forward to hold the tra-

ditional show. Although the city provided the $1,100 insurance policy, the group noted the $9,000 cost of the fireworks show itself became increasingly difficult to raise, the New Prague Times recently reported. Time and volunteers also

came into play. Twelve people began set up work for the 2012 show at 3 p.m. They didn’t finish the cleanup until well after the show. To fill the void, Lonsdale is hosting a show July 3, 10 p.m. Veseli is hosting a show July 4, 10 p.m.

CertainTeed Begins $20 Million Expansion at Shakopee Plant Aiming to make it more efficient to manufacture asphalt shingles and move product into and out of its Shakopee plant, CertainTeed Corp. has begun a $20 million expansion project. The expansion includes an asphalt blowing processing area as well as unloading station for rail cars. Asphalts for roofing coatings are air-blown to

reduce the affects of aging and increase weather resistance, according to a U.S. patent explanation. The expansion also includes four new rail tracks for unloading up to seven rail cars of asphalt flux on each track, the

Shakopee Valley News recently reported. The improvements also include a temporary truck loading and unloading facility is also under construction. The company employs approximately 230 people at its Shakopee plant.

Kevin graduated in 1982, a year after Cindy. They were married May 22, 1982 in Jordan. Kevin, the son of the late Mark and Rosemary Berger, and Cindy, the daughter of Richard Hartman and the late Marge Hartman, both come from big families. Kevin is the youngest of 15 kids and Cindy is the third youngest on nine children. Both their families have extensive farming backgrounds, Kevin’s in Jessenland and Cindy’s in St. Benedict. “The story I’ve been told is there were five (Berger) brothers who came to (America) from Germany and two of them died on the way,” Kevin said. “One of the other three settled in the southern U.S. and the other two came to Minnesota.” One of those two brothers who came to Minnesota was reportedly Kevin’s great grandfather, who settled in Jessenland. “I’m the youngest of 15 kids, so you might get 14 other stories. But this is the one I’ve been told,” said Kevin, whose grandma Berger was a Trimbo. Cindy, who is almost 100 percent German, has traced her ancestry back to 1702, when her 5x great grandfather, Johan Hartman, was born in Germany. Cindy’s 3x great grandfather Adam Hartman, who was born in 1786, came to America on a ship with his wife and 10 children. The family arrived in Louisville Township in 1854. Two sons homesteaded some 160 acres each. Cindy’s grandfather, Edward Hartman, died in 1938 at a young age. Her dad, Richard, served in the Korean War. About a month ago, the Bergers were asked by Greg Zurn of the Belle Plaine German Days Committee to be the grand marshals of this year’s parade, which they accepted. “We were surprised and very honored,” Cindy said. “I’m extremely happy to be a part of this community and be able to run our business here.”

By Dr. Kelly Smith

While Election Day is at least five months away, I would like to remind everyone about the Belle Plaine School Board election coming up this fall. For this election, three seats will be open as the terms for Mike Daly, Judy Nagel and Gary Steinhagen end on December 31st of this year. School board service is one of the most important responsibilities a citizen can undertake. The board’s standards and decisions will affect a generation of students, your community and society. Governing on a public board is a challenging job with long hours and difficult decisions. However, it is rewarding to watch students succeed and lead productive lives as a result of the educational opportunities you helped create. As a board member, your decisions must reflect what is best for all students and all citizens. This demands a strong commitment to serving other people. If you are willing to devote your time and talents to meeting these challenges, then we applaud your decision to run for your local board. Belle Plaine school board members are elected during the November General Election on odd years. Terms are four years, and at least three members are on the ballot during each election. Our school board members are elected at-large; meaning they do not represent a particular geographic area of the district, but represent the entire district. Here are some key dates to remember with regard to the election: Tuesday, July 30 is the first day to file for office and filing closes on Tuesday, August 13th at 4:30 p.m. Candidates may file in the District Center located at 130 S Willow Street between the hours of 7 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Monday thru Thursday and from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m. on Friday. There is a $2 filing fee that must be paid at the time of application. Election Day is Tuesday, November 5th. To be eligible for the school board, you must be at least 21 years old, an eligible voter, a resident of the Belle Plaine School District for at least 30 day and not be convicted of a felony. If you have any interest in serving on the school board and have additional questions about the time commitment, the responsibilities and the duties of being a school board member, I encourage you to contact current school board members or me. We will answer all of your questions to the best of our ability. Thank you for considering the possibility of running for school board. Please note that the office hours listed previously are the summer hours for the District Center. If residents wish to contact someone at their particular school building, they should contact the District Center staff as there is limited staffing in the other buildings during the summer months. As always, if you have any questions about school matters, please feel free to call me at 873-2400 or check our website at www.belleplaine.k12.mn.us. You may also find me on Twitter at @BPTiger716. Go Tigers!

Jordan 11, Tigers 1 The Tigertown Express travelled north on Highway 169 for a Father’s Day match up with the Jordan Brewers. Another day of threatening rain, and rain it would – rain runs. Not much to say, except that the Brewers would do something this writer has never seen, when they had TEN straight singles in the fourth, leading to nine runs. Another thing this writer has never seen was when it was raining and there seemed to be no clouds in the sky for the rain to be coming from. Some Tigers ventured to believe it was tears from the Lord for having to

watch the ugly affair of a game. Team Tigertown had six hits, with no Tiger having more than one. Larson led the sixth off with a double and was replaced by pinch-runner Trevor Latzke. A Dan Huber sac fly plated Latzke, helping the locals avoid a shutout. Note: Check out the fancy new widget Twitter has come up with (or, visit www.twitter.com/bptigertown). After years as a group on Facebook, the Tigers have a new page on the social media giant that you can ‘Like’ (whether you really do or not) at www.facebook.com/bptigertown.

Training

(continued from page 1) Armed with training Airsoft guns that used C02 to shoot nonlethal rounds, the role-playing included searching for the shooter, pursuit of an active shooter, cornering the shooter and securing the shooter after he was shot and apprehended. “It was a jam-packed three days,” Stolee said. The training included efforts to de-escalate a situation and negotiate when possible and shoot when necessary. “We trained with multiple scenarios, not just the same thing over and over again.” The training was arranged shortly after Lt. David Grossman (U.S. Army retired) visited Belle Plaine and Jordan in January to speak with staff from the two schools plus Belle Plaine and area police on building security in the wake of the Newtown, Conn. elementary school shootings in December. Superintendent Kelly Smith said the district was happy to host the training since the buildings are free of students and relatively unused now that school is out for the summer. He said the department’s training was “kind of a natural next progression of what should happen” after Grossman’s visit last winter. Since Grossman’s visit, the Belle Plaine School District has implemented an array of security upgrades that include check-in points at school front offices and Internet-based security cameras inside the high school. Last week’s training was provided by the National As-

sociation of School Resource Officers. Stolee said the opportunity to host the training is worthwhile, even if the risk of an active shooter in Belle Plaine School is low. The school shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary in affluent Newtown, Conn. and reports of a school shooter at New Prague Middle School in March, though a hoax, are reminders that school violence can occur where it is least expected. “I don’t gamble. I don’t play the odds,” Stolee said. “I’m not going to say it won’t happen here.”

The 19.29 acre parcel preserves 890 feet of shoreline for conservation and public use. “The purchase marks the end of planned land acquisitions for the Lake Waconia Regional Park,” said Carver County Board Chair Tim Lynch. “Since 1975, Carver County has planned for a Regional Park to preserve a portion of Lake Waconia for conservation and public use.” There are many benefits to acquiring the park property. The purchase is a big step for towards the resolution of Old Beach Lane and will allow for a trail connecting the city to the park. The 40-foot tall hillside provides a natural landscape to allow for a secluded atmosphere in the park while buffering noise. In addition, the purchase will allow the park to realize future

Wright County Conference Accepts New Prague’s Bid for Membership New Prague High School appears to have found a conference home for its co-curricular athletic teams for the 2014-15 school year. The Wright County Conference recently voted to accept the Trojans, a move the New Prague Area School Board is expected to accept Monday (June 24). Hutchinson, which like New Prague, was a member of the Missota Conference before it left for the WCC, cast the only no vote of the 11 teams voting. The WCC is proposed to have two divisions – one for its large schools and the other for smaller schools. Based on current enrollment, New Prague will be the largest of the large schools with 1,123 students. The other large schools include Waconia (1,035), Orono (909), Hutchin-

son (797), Delano (724) and Holy Family (507), the Mew Prague Times recently reported. The small school division is proposed to include Mound Westonka (617), Dassel-Cokato (586), Glencoe-Silver Lake (507), Litchfield (486), Annandale (464) and New LondonSpicer (390). The Missota Conference decided to disband at the end of the coming school year after four member schools – Shakopee, Farmington, Chanhassen and Chaska – decided to leave, the newspaper reported. New Prague had sought entry into the Metro West and Big 9 conferences, applications that were rejected. New Prague was a 35-year-member of the Missota Conference.

recreational opportunities, including a public boat access that is planned in partnership with the Department of Natural Resources. The public water access will help to alleviate parking congestion and hazardous parking conditions along County Road 92 near the DNR access. In April, the Carver County Board approved the amended purchase agreement with Alta Investments, LLC, for this parcel. The negotiated purchase price of $3,552,000 plus $70,000 in closing and professional service fees was reached. It is anticipated that Carver County will receive full reimbursement for the acquisition through the Metropolitan Council. Early concepts for Lake Waconia Regional Park date back

to master plans created in 1975. In 1996, an acquisition master plan was approved through a public process to define the park boundary and provide guidance for the types of recreation to be offered at the park. In 2001, another public input and review process was undertaken to create the development master plan for the park. This plan reaffirmed recreational uses and laid out the proposed locations of roadways, beach, picnic areas, trails, boat access, group use area, sledding hill, playground, parking and areas of conservation.

Tigers Beat Saints; Lose to Brewers

by Brett Kruschke and Matt Schultz Team Tigertown looked to be taking a step forward this weekend when with a 9-6 win at St. Peter behind them, they were hanging tough early with the Class ‘C’ juggernaut Jordan Brewers. That’s when the floodgates opened and the hosts put up a nine-spot in the fourth inning, snapping Belle Plaine back to reality in an 11-1, seven-inning defeat. Belle Plaine had its chance to move into first place in the RVL-Central with a win, but instead fell to 3-2 in league play and 5-10 overall. Jordan is atop the competitive Central division at 4-1, with Chanhassen and Henderson sitting at 4-2. Le Sueur is in fifth place at 2-3. The road got no easier for the Tigers with a match up at the Chaska Cubs Tuesday night; check www.bptigertown.com for the result. On Friday, the sadly narrower streets of Belle Plaine will roll out a thinner red carpet for the Randolph Railcats at 7:30 p.m. Sunday will feature a trek to another city of beer brewing legend with a 2 p.m. match up against New Ulm Kaiserhoff. young player the team could In promotional news, the Tinot keep out of the lineup.

gers are bringing back Mustache Night, which was the talked about hit of the summer in 2010. As an added bonus this year, compliments of RTL Construction magnate and Tiger Shawn Larson, the first 216 fans in attendance will receive a free fake mustache! Tigers 9, St. Peter 6 The Tigertown Express travelled southbound on Highway 169 Friday to take on their first RVL-West Division opponent this year in the St. Peter Saints. The night threatened rain, as it always seems to when we head to St. Peter. But aside from a light dusting of rain during pregame, the contest would be played in full on what turned out to be a pretty nice night. Larson started on the mound for the locals and he was greeted by a St. Peter run in the first inning. It would be all Tigers from there on as they took the lead and never relinquish it. The fourth inning started with a leadoff walk and the next five Tigers came up with singles. The inning ended with El Tigre scoring seven runs to take a 7-1 lead. The Saints answered with three runs in the bottom of the fourth and it could’ve been more. Larson was able to escape with a

few runners stranded, although not before a hard-hit ground ball found his knee and forced him to the ground (flashback to the 2012 state tournament). Larson finished the inning and came out for the fifth inning, however. After a leadoff double, Larson was removed, giving way to Jake Fiedler. Fiedler came in and got out of the inning, with the Saints getting two runs to cut the Tiger lead to one. In the top of the sixth, Nate Hartmann led off with a single and Matt Schultz followed with a wind-aided double to put runners at second and third with no outs. The next two batters flailed, leaving it up to Pat Schultz. The veteran catcher came up big with a two-run “bomb” (actually a double, but some young Tigers don’t know the definition of a bomb in baseball) to take a three-run lead. The lead would be all Fiedler would need as he finished the game. He also paced the way offensively with three of the team’s 13 hits. Travis Latzke, Ryan Diers and Pat Schultz all notched two hits, with the latter also recording a walk and three RBI.

A Settlement Offer’s an Offer

Judge Awards Ciliberto Extra 5 Percent Raise TBD: How Scott County Board Will Enact Raise A district court judge has ruled Scott County commissioners’ offer of an additional 5 percent raise for County Attorney Pat Ciliberto constitutes a legitimate offer not even the county board’s chairperson could rightfully rescind. Judge Kevin Mark’s order means Ciliberto will receive the 3 percent offer commissioners approved for him in December of 2012 plus an additional 5 percent the board offered as a settlement following Ciliberto’s salary appeal. State law grants Ciliberto the right to appeal his salary set by the county board. In April, Mark took the issue under advisement a request to force the county to make good on the settlement offer. The ruling last week means Ciliberto’s 2013 salary will be $138,432 and not the $131,840 commissioners unanimously agreed to at the end of 2012. Ciliberto earned $128,000 in 2012. The county board offered the additional 5 percent April 4. Four days later, the offer was rescinded, according to the judge’s ruling. Ciliberto’s attorney John Fabian argued Commissioner Tom Wolf of Credit River Township, the county board’s chairperson, “was getting cold feet� over the potential fallout from an 8 percent salary increase. In his ruling, Mark noted case law stating, “agreements are governed by basic principles of contract law.� He wrote the settlement required both parties to reach agreement “on the essential terms of the deal.� Mark also contends settlement of lawsuits is “greatly favored� and settlements will not be set aside lightly. Although the court filings and ruling indicates the board unanimously approved the settlements, two commissioners claim there was nothing unani-

The purpose of the Honor Flight is “to fly America’s veterans to Washington to visit World War II and other war memorials in honor of their sacrifices.� Red, 92, served in the Army Air Force during World War II. He and Doug brought home many photos from their day-long excursion on April 27. The slide show was Red’s way of sharing the trip with many of his fellow residents at Kingsway.

Fund-raising for Mission Trip Youth from St. John Lutheran Church in Belle Plaine went to work last weekend raising money to cover expenses for the group’s mission trip to southern Alabama next month. Andrea Jeurissen, John Franck and John Karl were among the youth who washed 20 vehicles Saturday morning at Matt Saxe Chevrolet-Buick. Over at Coborn’s Superstore, youth from the church staffed the hot dog and brat stand last weekend.

m o u s about the additional 5 percent offer. Commissioners Joe Wa g n e r of Sand C r e e k To w n ship, Belle P l a i n e ’s representative on the county board, and David Menden of Shakopee both said they vehemently opposed the additional 5 percent raise. Commissioners offered the 5 percent raise earlier this spring after one of several closed-door meetings with the county’s legal counsel representing the board during Ciliberto’s appeal. They claim the board was split on the additional 5 percent with Wolf breaking the deadlock. Wagner said the offer now gives the county’s labor unions the precedence to push for 8 percent raises, wage increases he says could cost taxpayers millions of dollars. “I don’t know what Tom was thinking,� Wagner said. “We had a judge who was willing to make the decision.� Wolf did not respond to several telephone calls and e-mails seeking his view of the matter. The judge’s order makes no mention of Ciliberto’s request the county be ordered to pay his legal fees.

* Place the raise on the county board’s agenda at an upcoming meeting for approval at a public meeting. * Reject the court order, a move that could result in a contempt of court order, * Take no action and meet in closed session to discuss a possible appeal of Mark’s order. In a memo to commissioners, County Administrator Gary Shelton said the board’s legal counsel feels this action would be “somewhat unusual and potentially unproductive.� Wagner favors an appeal because he doesn’t want the county to support 8 percent raises for all its employees. “Sending that message (to the unions) would be very productive,� Wagner said.

Suicide Grief Support Group Meets June 25 Family, friends and anyone who has lost a loved one to suicide are invited to participate in a suicide survivor support group that meets at 7 p.m. next Tuesday, June 25 at Mayo Clinic Health System in New Prague.

Call Sally Schmid at 952-7584735 for more information.

Implementation

Yet to be determined is how the board will enact the additional 5 percent raise the judge ordered is retroactive to Jan. 1, 2013. Wagner, the board’s vice chairperson, said county administration is offering commissioners four options for implementing the raise. They are: * The board could adjust Ciliberto’s salary without formal action. The rationale would be the raise was approved during a closed session with its legal counsel.
