The Belle Plaine Friends of the Library Board plans to eventually demolish the city-owned building at left, currently rented for use by Front Porch Photography, and construct an addition to the library building.

Belle Plaine Friends of Library Proposing to Expand Facility The BPHS robotics team and its robot -- No. 4663 -- is ready for the regional competition tomorrow, Friday and Saturday at the University of Minnesota. On its pyramid, the team includes (from left) Alex Casebier, Thea Iverson, Ben Preusser, Patrick Schaefer, (not pictured) Keegan Titus and Nicole Eisenschenk. The team is led by (below, from left) advisors Jeff Heine and Kyle Iverson.

B.P. Robotics Team Has Lofty Goals for First Competition

‘Cyber-Tigers’ Will Enjoy First Regional This Week at ‘U’

A year ago, the idea of a robotics team at Belle Plaine Junior-Senior High School was something few were certain would become reality. Today, the team’s entry in the regional competition is packed and ready to go. The Minnesota North Star Regional competition begins tomorrow (March 28) and runs through Saturday (March 30) at Williams Arena and Mariucci Arena on the University of Minnesota campus. Belle Plaine – known as the Cyber Tigers -- will compete at Mariucci Arena. The pits and machine shop open each day at 8 a.m. A practice round will be tomorrow morning, 10 a.m. to noon, and again at 1 to 4:30 p.m. Qualification matches are Friday, 9 a.m. to noon and 1 to 5:45 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. The final round of

by Dan Ruud The Belle Plaine Friends of the Library Board is proposing to construct an addition to the public library downtown that would increase the size of the facility by one-third to onehalf. According to Joey Behnke, CEO of the Friends of the Library Charitable Gambling Committee, the project could be done with very minimal costs to the city. Behnke said he is confident the project, estimated at over $300,000, could be funded almost entirely through

charitable gambling funds and a county or state grant. The Friends of the Library presently has charitable gambling sites at the Red Door Bar, Sparetime Tavern and Borough Bowl. “We have enough money stashed away to get this started, and with future charitable gambling proceeds, this shouldn’t cost the city,” Behnke said. Laurie Behnke, treasurer of the Friends of the Library Board, and Tami Almlie, charitable gambling manager, both agreed that the cost to the city would

be minimal. The city is responsible for the public library building and its maintenance, while Scott County pays for all staffing and material costs, the latter of which includes books, computers and furniture, etc. The expansion would occur at the present site of Front Porch Photography (123 West Main Street), which has been operated by Toni Fogarty for a number of years. She rents the facil-

Mayor Pingalore is New Manager of Valley View Golf Course/Restaurant by Dan Ruud Belle Plaine Mayor Mike Pingalore is the new General Manager of Valley View Golf Course and Eagle Ridge Restaurant/Lounge in Belle Plaine. His first day on the job was March 18. Pingalore replaced Matt Hauge, who resigned recently to accept a similar job with the Waseca Lakeside Golf Club. Hauge had worked at Valley View for about seven years. Pingalore, 39, became mayor of Belle Plaine this past January after defeating incumbent Tim Lies in the November General Election. He has lived in Belle Plaine for about 10 years.

Pingalore, who has also worked for Taylor Corporation in sales and marketing, said he is in the process of transitioning from that job to his new one at Valley View. Pingalore spent a number of years living in Florida before moving to Belle Plaine. He attended Jacksonville (Florida)

University on a golf scholarship from 1992 to 1996, graduating with a degree in business communications. He eventually operated his own business in Orlando as a manufacturers’ representative for golf products. He currently runs his own small business called BrokenTee Custom Golf, a mobile golf club repair service. Pingalore and his wife, Tina, met at a PGA Golf Show in Orlando in 1998. They have three children – Jake, 11, Ella, 9, and Grace, 3. Pingalore is

What to Do With County Jails and Not Enough Prisoners? Scott-Carver Counties to Study Sharing of Jail Space Hoping to bridge the gap between the number of available beds and bed space in use in the Scott and Carver county jails and the cost to operate the two facilities, county sheriffs and commissioners are beginning to look into the possibility of sharing space and possibly services.

Last week, Scott and Carver County commissioners met in a workshop to begin what could be a lengthy study and series of talks on the potential of sharing services in the name of maximizing the efficiency of operating the two jails.

Plenty of Vacancies

The Scott County Jail in Shakopee was built for $32 million in 2005. It includes sheriff’s offices, a 9-1-1 dispatch center, conference and training space. It has 264 beds and space to expand to 450 beds. But that expansion would eliminate office space. Its average daily population the past four years has been 116 or about 44 percent of its existing capacity.

The Carver County Jail in Chaska was built in 1994 and has 117 beds. Its average daily population the past four years is 78, or 67 percent of capacity. The two counties built their jails hoping to bring in additional revenue by housing other counties’ inmates, state and federal prisoners as well as their own inmates and pre-trial offenders when space permits. Carver County has a beneficial contract with the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). It provides the lion’s Workers were moving large coolers into the former Duets building downtown on Tuesday. Inshare of Carver County’s $1.1 side was Linda Heng, who with her husband Tim recently purchased the building from Rick million in annual revenue. Scott and Mary Krant. The Hengs, who also operate Broadway Market in Jordan, plan to call their County has eight to 10 Bureau Belle Plaine business Main Street Donut and Deli, which will include breakfast pastries, sandwiches, hamburgers, soups and more.

New Prague Has a Tough Week at Middle School; Boy, 12, Arrested

Between bomb threats and false reports of a shooter in the middle school, it was a tough week in New Prague Area Schools last week. Wednesday (March 20) around 8 a.m., a 12-year-old boy’s alleged reports of a shooter armed with an AK-47 in the school sent police, sheriff’s deputies, state troopers and paramedics from throughout the area racing to New Prague. The school was evacuated and police searched it for the shooter and victims. They found no shooter, no victims and no gun. The incident was deemed a hoax, according to New Prague Police Chief Mark Vosejpka. Using technology that led them to the boy and his cell phone, police took him into custody that morning. Scott County Attorney Pat Ciliberto would not comment on any charges the boy may face in juvenile in court. Thursday morning, the district received bomb threats at the

middle school via e-mail. At approximately 8:35 a.m., New Prague Middle School administration informed police of several bomb threats. Officers responded to the school and met with administrative staff. During that meeting, more emails containing bomb threats arrived. They all said the bomb detonate within 30 minutes, Vosejpka said. School administration evacuated students and staff from both New Prague Middle School and Central Education Campus to the New Prague Community Center Thursday. Officers and some school staff searched the building and its exterior and no suspicious items were located, Vosejpka said. After about one hour, students and staff returned to the school. The U.S. Marshals Service is investigating the origin of the e-mails. They do not believe a New Prague Area Schools student sent the e-mails.

Carver SWCD Seeking Applicants for Wetland Conservation Easement The Carver County Soil and Water Conservation District (SCWD) is seeking applicants for wetland restoration projects through a conservation easement sign-up. Wetland restorations will generate wetland credits, which will be used to offset wetland impacts resulting from qualifying road improvement and rehabilitation projects in Minnesota. Landowners will be compensated for allowing the generation of these credits (rates vary across the county). The Board of Water and Soil Resources (BWSR) is partnering with the Carver SWCD on this program. Eligible sites have restorable wetlands or existing degraded wetlands, and: – Have no legal ownership is-

sues (in foreclosure, ongoing divorce settlement or probate, etc.). – Have no conflicting easements or legal agreements (mineral rights, wind towers, etc.). – Have wetlands that can be reasonably restored without affecting adjacent lands. The application period continues through May 13. Interested landowners should contact the Carver SWCD office at 952466-5230. The SWCD will help determine if sites are a good fit for the program and work with landowners to complete the application materials for submittal to BWSR. More information can be found on BWSR’s website: http://www.bwsr.state.mn.us/ wetlands/2013_WB_RFP.html.

A person is usually comforted by things they know they can count on. You often like to depend on things being a certain way. For instance, can you imagine the disappointment of tourists that would arrive at Niagara Falls and find no falling water? In this week of history, on March 29, 1848, Niagara Falls did just that. It stopped flowing. None of the three waterfalls that make up Niagara Falls had water going over them. A huge jam of ice blocks formed a huge natural dam up above the falls and stopped the flow of water until April 1st when the ice dam gave way and a huge torrent of water spilled over the falls. Days later, it was back to normal. During the stoppage, hundreds of people went down into the now dry areas to look for souvenirs. It does not strike me as a clever or safe thing to have done. One thing that I can count on, in my weekly reading, is the opportunity to learn something new. The Niagara Falls story was interesting in several ways. I did not know that it had ever stopped flowing and I even learned the names of the three falls that make up Niagara Falls. I will leave that for you to look up and learn for yourself. If you wish to compare notes, stop by the desk at the library and we can talk about it. If you wish to learn more about Niagara Falls, we have many resources for you to use. Of course, one thing you can count on, is that we will be happy to help you. There will be no Story-Time will be Friday, March 29, but we do have Open House Craft Day. Come in and make a craft.

Roman Barten Memorial Breakfast Will Help B.P. Family Fran Barten and her children weren’t sure who they would select as the beneficiary of this year’s annual family community service breakfast. There are many worthy options. A visit to her dentist provided the inspiration she needed. The Barten family selected Emma German and her family as the recipients of proceeds from the Sixth Annual Roman Barten Memorial Breakfast. It is slated for April 7, 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., at New Prague Knights of Columbus Hall (411 Fourth Avenue SW) in New Prague. The menu features pancakes, sausages and cinnamon rolls. A free-will donation is requested. The daughter of Keriann and Chris German of Belle Plaine, Emma German suffered a relapse of neuroblastoma in December. She was first diagnosed with the disease during the summer of 2010. At 6 years old, she has endured chemotherapy, kidney failure, surgery and a stem cell transplant before doctors found the relapse after a year of upbeat tests results. The news in December means Emma and her family face more treatments and possible travel expenses to other hospitals. The proceeds from the breakfast will help offset those costs. Each year, the family selects someone in the area to try and help with proceeds from the breakfast. This year, the family was stumped who was most in needs of help until Fran’s recent visit to her dentist, Strait

Thirty Years Ago This Week

State Tourney Champs Six kid wrestlers from Belle Plaine won first place in the Minnesota State Jaycee Wrestling Tournament in Willmar in March of 1983. Over 1,500 kids from throughout the state competed. Taking first for Belle Plaine were Joe Hoelz, Keith Nyblom, Aaron Bahr, Adrian Bahr, Donnie Revord and Shawn Buesgens. Jason Piche, Josh Baynes and Dana Otto were runner-ups, while Jeremy Schultz and Chad Schmit placed third. Pictured above back row, from left, are Chad Schmit, Aaron Bahr, Keith Nyblom, Adrian Bahr, Joe Hoelz and Dana Otto. In the front row are Donnie Revord, Josh Baynes, Jason Piche, Shawn Buesgens and Jeremy Schultz. Scott County taxpayers would likely be footing a bill of over $2 million to do something about providing more space for county government in the future. A public hearing was set to give residents an opportunity to voice their opinion on four options for construction. Three of the options topped the $2 million mark, while the other, the conversion of the courthouse garage to office space, would cost about $1 million. But constructing a third floor on the courthouse appeared to be the option that had the most support among county commissioners. That option would cost an estimated $2,070,107. Other options included an on-site threestory building ($2,494,075) and a two-story off-site building ($2,494,075). Two school board positions would be filled at the school board election that was scheduled for May 17, filings for which would open April 4. Joanne Johnson and Mike Newell were the board members whose terms were up in 1983. Spring just could not break through. Each time we were thinking spring, another 3 or 4 inches of snow descended upon us. Elsie Stoppelmann had recently been honored at a party given in recognition of her 40 years of telephone service, and also her retirement from Central Telephone-Minnesota (Centel). Elsie began her career on Jan. 20, 1943 as an operator in Belle Plaine. She held that position until May 22, 1957 when she was moved into the position of commercial clerk. In 1976 she was transferred to Jordan and in 1977 she was transferred to Le Center, where she held her commercial clerk position until she retired.

Dear Editor, To whom it should concern, I am Mark Koepp and have farmland that is impacted by the power line CapX. I would appreciate the opportunity to publicly respond to CapX spokespersons, Randy Fordice and Dan Lector (sp.) Statements made by these "hired-guns" of CapX in newspaper articles of March 20, 2013 in the Belle Plaine Herald and the South Metro edition of the Star Tribune of March 13, 2013 are ridiculously inaccurate. Everyday CapX shows disrespect for my land and my neighbors land. They do this when it is unnecessary by using equipment and vehicles that compact the earth and destroy improvements such as tile lines that are not made to withstand heavy equipment weight over it. This is when they have a choice and could have used pump trucks that are available to them. No, they have no respect for our land and way making a living and our livelihood. Heavy vehicles could use existing roads, as the lines are many times adjacent to

roads. But no, they drive across field land even after I raised objections at several meetings that I have attended. My concerns fall on "deaf ears." During these meetings, Randy Fordice has stated that the landowners will be made "whole' after the line is constructed. If past actions are any indication of what that means, then I believe that whole is being misspelled by CapX and the real term should be "hole." All that I have seen is the 12 holes for the power line poles. Randy Fordice says not to worry but we have to hire attorneys and document damages and try to get a fair appraisal for the land that is usurped, damaged or scarred. This is for the good of all? No, just so wind generated power can be said to be delivered to Chicago, Milwaukee or Detroit? And then after all expenses of the landowners in defending their land they end up with the "morning after" equivalent. Take a drive down Stoppelmann Boulevard and note how many times the new power line crisscrosses the road. Ask yourself why? The reason is CapX does not have to compensate adjacent landowners if the line does NOT run across the landowner's property. My neighbors and I will not get a fair deal for anything done to us. In fact, I have not even addressed damages done from stray voltage or electromagnetic radiation. The power company says these dangers do NOT exist. Data has proven otherwise with information from California and studies done of leukemia rates adjacent in children near power lines. Yet the power companies dispute this and concoct data to suit their own needs. These "hired-guns" are paid to manufacture and finesse information to fool the public. Have they not heard of line loss of stray voltage or electromagnet radiation? Simple physics. Ask Ollie Heitkamp, a person you can trust for an honest answer to physics of electricity transmission. Randy Fordice would not give me a straight answer on this. Randy even quotes a Doug Reinemann of University of Wisconsin, Madison that there is no stray voltage. Who is he kidding? Did he ever hear of line loss? 1040% in some cases. My brother decided to sell his two generation dairy operation rather than take a risk to his dairy heard and the possibility of four hooves on wet ground near a stray current. The CapX did NOT make him WHOLE! My mother was forced to accept a low appraisal on her residence over which the power line is running. What I am asking for my neighbors and myself is that we be shown some respect for our livelihood and be treated fairly and not be taken advantage of. CapX insulates themselves from OUR real life situations. Therefore, we can get nowhere without good attorneys being hired. The power company knows that some people will just settle, so they win. I wish all of my neighbors affected by this the best. You will need it.  Sincerely,  Mark N. Koepp

Dear Editor, I recently attended Dental Day at the Minnesota Capitol and was proud to be among over 100 members of the Minnesota Dental Association meeting with legislators on important dental issues. A recent report released by the Minnesota Department of Health on the state’s oral health status showed that 55% of third graders experience tooth decay and that lowincome children and adults suffer disproportionately from oral diseases. This does not have to be the case. I work hard in my dental practice in Belle Plaine to provide care to all who need it, but the current system for treating the states’s Medical Assistance population is broken and must be remedied. My office and one other treat almost all of the patients at the Lutheran Home, the majority of which are on medical assistance. The rates the state pays to provide care for those on medical assistance have not increased in 14 years. This fee structure is woefully inadequate and doesn’t even cover the cost of care. Dentists need the ability to serve their patients and cover overhead costs of their practice which averages 65%. It is impossible for me or any other dental provider to meet the needs of Minnesota’s public program patients under this system. That is why the MDA is proposing a bill at the Minnesota legislature that would bring dental fee reimbursement rates in line with current dental fee schedules. This bill is similar to action taken by other states that has proven to significantly increase the provider network and improve oral health outcomes. It is an “ask� that is long overdue and will ensure all Minnesotans have access to quality dental care, regardless of socio-economic status. Dr. Tasha Strait

County’s First Administrator by Gina Kammer, Henderson Independent The new Sibley County Administrator, Matthew Jaunich, having recently begun his new job said, “Well, it’s been almost three weeks, and I’m still here.� More seriously, Jaunich stated, “It’s going well. I can’t really complain.� He admitted that there’s definitely a “fast learning curve,� considering the position is completely new. That’s both the most difficult part and best part of the former Arlington city administrator’s new job as Sibley County’s first-ever administrator. “I’m establishing the foundation here. Everything is brand new,� he said, adding even though it’s a challenge, it’s nice he gets to “mold it.� The main duties Jaunich has in beginning the new position is to gain information through meeting with department heads and commissioners “to see what’s going on,� and then he is putting together a list of goals for the county. Jaunich will be presenting some of his findings at an upcoming meeting and will assemble a work plan for the future.

Learning Curve

“They’re very informative,� Nytes said. “I’m very happy with what I’ve seen so far.� Nytes has yet to enjoy much time with Jaunich. This week, with two rounds of labor negotiations and a series of meetings that includes the U of M’s County Extension staff, Nytes looking forward to gaining a better handle on the way Jaunich conducts himself.

Plenty to Learn About

Besides meeting with the department heads and commissioners as part of this plan, Jaunich also plans to learn more about the county budget, ordinances, contracts, policies and procedures. He also sees his job as being an opportunity to “create a positive working atmosphere along all levels of county government,� he said. Nytes is looking for Jaunich to “clarify� some of the facets of the two labor contracts that are a matter of “this is the way it’s always been,� he said. “There may be some thing that need fixing.� As the voice of the county board, Jaunich has been highly approachable so far, Nytes said. Other than meeting days, his casual approach offers the staff a sense he’s there to help and not be overly critical. “Everything I’ve herd from the staff has been very positive,� Nytes said. One of the benefits of having a county administrator position, he said, is there will be “one person filtering through everything.� Nytes said he speaks for himself, not for the board. Jaunich will be the singular voice of the county board to staff. “Now there’s someone passing on those decisions to department heads and following up with them. I’m the one filtering person,� he said. “My responsibility is to make sure everyone’s achieving those goals.�

Jaunich called the plan his “90/1 Work Plan� in his memo he presented to the county board. This title means he would like to gain some “general knowledge� on how everything operates in 90 days, and believes it will take one year to “have a real good understanding of how these items and people operate and how they will be coordinate with the county administrator position.� Commissioner Jim Nytes of Henderson Township is pleased with everything he’s heard from Jaunich and of him, too. Jaunich recently hired his own secretary, a part-timer staff poLike a CEO sition that will help him with economic development issues. Jaunich compared the posiThe administrator also keeps tion to the equivalent of being his five bosses well informed the chief executive officer of a on what he’s been working on. private-sector company. “What

$25 million corporation doesn’t have a CEO,� he asked. Jaunich stated that by having such a position, Sibley County will experience “more clear communication,� and it offers a “new way of a structure of government at the county level.� Although Jaunich said the county operates efficiently, he hopes his position will make everything even more efficient as they are always working to improve wherever they can. “If there’s an issue,� Jaunich said, “I can relay that back to the board.� In addition, Jaunich also wants information to go both ways. He can then also be “someone to go to for information� and help to “provide the public with it.� Nytes is looking forward to any expertise Jaunich can offer on the management of Sibley East and Sibley West apartment facilities in Henderson and Winthrop. He hopes Jaunich will be able to help the county save the $40 to $50,000 it pays a management company to run the facilities annually. Jaunich believes having the county administrator position intact for the future “will start helping for thinking and planning long-term rather than more on a year-to-year basis.� Jaunich said, “That doesn’t mean it’s not being done now.� Going forward, he’ll be able to keep everything organized and provide the pubic with that information. “I hope,� he said, “we have a better, faster, cheaper form of government.� Nytes is hoping the savings an administrator can generate will cover the administrator’s salary in a few years. Although he was concerned when the commissioners Bill Pinske of Arlington and Jim Swanson of Gaylord only brought in two candidates to interview, Nytes is confident Sibley County commissioners made a good hire. Both would have been choices, although Nytes favored Jaunich. “Arlington really wanted to keep him,� Nytes said. “That says a lot.�

Superintendent’s Update

Service News Army National Guard Pvt. Patrick R. Fahey of Belle Plaine graduated from basic combat training at Fort Jackson, Columbia, S.C. During the nine weeks of training, the soldier studied the Army mission, history, tradition and core values, physical fitness, and received instruction and practice in basic combat skills, military weapons, chemical warfare and bayonet training, drill and ceremony, marching, rifle marksmanship, armed and unarmed combat, map reading, field tactics, military courtesy, military justice system, basic first aid, foot marches, and field training exercises. Fahey is the son of Jennifer and Thomas Fahey of New Prague and is a 2012 graduate of Belle Plaine High School.

New Manager (continued from page 1) also a volunteer coach for the Belle Plaine High School golf program. “This (Valley View) job is a golden opportunity for me with all my years as a golfer and background in the golfing business,� said Pingalore, adding that the course will open as soon as Mother Nature permits. Pingalore said he plans to reopen Eagle Ridge Restaurant/ Lounge, a full-service bar and dining facility within the clubhouse area, on April 3. He said plans are to change the environment of the establishment from a sports bar to more of a lounge. Keys 4/4 Kids in Belle Plaine is providing a baby grand piano for the bar area and local and area piano players are being sought to play it during evening hours. As for the golf course, Pingalore is working with Head Superintendent Jon Almlie on making some changes to the golf course to have it play a little differently. “I have played many different golf courses all over the country and I am looking to bring some new looks and feels to the course,� Pingalore said. Pingalore is also in the process of creating a junior golf membership and league. Valley View Golf Course, built in 1991, spans 6,300 yards from the furthest tees. It is a par 71, 18-hole championship golf course. The clubhouse and pro shop building was built in 2001. Valley View Golf Course is owned by Connie and LeRoy Chard, Bill and Marge Shinehouse, and Roger Moody.

Along with students and staff of the Belle Plaine Schools, our Minnesota legislature is also on spring break this year. The legislative break marks the mid-way point of the current session and allows legislators to visit constituents back in their home districts prior to their return next week for the final push to session adjournment scheduled for Monday, May 20th. What are the current prospects for an on-time adjournment and what will be the major accomplishments of this legislature. As of the legislative Easter/Passover break, there are now three different budget plans that have been presented by the Governor, the House and the Senate. Each of the proposals spells out the priorities of the branch of government it came from. Let’s take a look at each of the proposals. Governor Dayton made is initial proposal earlier in the session and there were two major priorities within his proposal. He focused on the investment of additional revenue for E-12 education programs including special education. The Governor’s proposal did not include a repayment of the shift taken from Minnesota schools. In order to help pay for this additional investment, the Governor proposed additional taxes with significant changes in the sales tax including the addition of business to business taxes that were not very popular with many and he has since revised his proposal. After additional revenues were part of the most recent state economic forecast, the Governor revised his proposal by dropping the business to business tax and backing off on many of the sales tax initiatives. The Governor’s education proposal increases funding by $355 million over the biennium. The House proposal has a priority to repay the dollars that were shifted from Minnesota schools along with fully funding all day, every day kindergarten, and providing additional revenue for special education programs. Additional revenue in the House proposal is generated by taxing higher income Minnesotans and by broadening the sales tax. The total new investment from the House for E-12 education is $550 million over the biennium. The Senate proposal also focuses on additional funding for all day, every day kindergarten and special education, but does not seek to repay the school shift. In addition, the Senate proposal dedicates approximately $150 million for property tax relief. The total new investment for E-12 from the Senate is $486 million. While there are some common threads throughout each of the proposals – increased taxes, funding all day, every day kindergarten and special education – there are still many details to be worked out to come to an agreement on a final E-12 education bill over the course of the next eight weeks. I am encouraged that additional funding for education is present in all of the proposals and that property tax relief is still a part of the discussion. Stay tuned for further information as our legislature continues to move toward adjournment of the 2013 session. As always, if you have any questions about school matters, please feel free to call me at 873-2400 or check our website at www.belleplaine.k12.mn.us. Go Tigers!

BELLE PLAINE HERALD, BELLE PLAINE, MINNESOTA

(continued from page 1) of Prisons inmates each day in the final 30 to 90 days of their sentences. That contract diminishes Carver County’s reliance on its property tax levy to fund jail operations. Carver County’s jail expenses are $3.9 million and the county levied $2.8 million for jail expenses. Scott County’s jail cost $4.9 million to run. Since Scott County only takes in $500,000 in revenue. Its operating costs are approximately $4.9 million annually, meaning taxpayers on this side of the river chip in $4.4 million for jail operations. A study would be aimed at increasing the efficiency of the two jails and the court systems. It will look at feasible merger alternatives designed to ensure equity between the two counties. A task force led by Scott County Sheriff Kevin Studnicka and Carver County Sheriff James Olson will lead the study. It will include the two county administrators, both counties’ employee relations and finance directors and administrative support staffs. The study will also consider input from district court judges in Scott and Carver counties, corrections officers, probation officers, court staff, public defenders and taxpayers. Possible recommendations are expected in November with board decisions on potential implementation of recommendations slated for December. The study comes about a year after the two counties were unable to reach an agreement on sharing of 911 dispatch services, despite being about four miles apart. Studnicka said “buy-in� from the judges and other groups will help the study reach a potentially more workable solution. If the two counties consider some form of cross-county-line merger, enabling legislation could be required to allow, for example, a Carver County citizen to have a criminal trial in

Scott County or a Scott County citizen to have a civil case heard in Carver County. The two counties also hope to diminish the impacts upon their existing staffs. Commissioner Joe Wagner of Sand Creek Township said the Scott County Jail seems overbuilt. Belle Plaine’s representative on the board, Wagner was the senior commissioner on the committee that helped plan the new facility after the county finally agreed to replace its noncompliant jail. “Development was rocking before that. We expected to sell (bed) space but also to fill it up with our own residents,� Wagner said. Studnicka said building for the future is a matter of good planning. Wagner contends a maturing population in Scott County as well other counties being less interested in the costs associated with renting bed space has affected counties’ jail populations and bottom lines. “We thought we were making a good decision when we planned the jail. Things happened. Things changed,� Wagner said. “Now, we need to do this study to make sure we move forward and do the best we can with what we have going on.�

Library (continued from page 1)

ity from the city, which bought the property a number of years ago as a site for the future expansion of the library. Because the proposal to expand the library is still in its early stages, Behnke said Fogarty would receive at least a one-year notice to find another location for her business. “We are just on the ground floor of getting this started and handing it over to the hierarchy,� Joey Behnke said. In discussions with Belle Plaine Librarian Georgine Gansen, the Behnkes said Gansen “is very excited about the project and wishes it could start tomorrow.� “Georgine has over 500 kids in the summer reading program and it’s unbelievable how busy the place gets,� said Joey Behnke, adding that space is also limited for the year-round junior and adult reading programs, and the conference area (Rose Room) is often “booked solid.� The Behnkes said the addition would allow for additional “private� computer-equipped study rooms, a second conference room and another rest room facility. For a number of years, the Belle Plaine Public Library was located in the former Dr. Juergens building at 127 South Cedar Street. It moved to its much larger, new facility on West Main Street in 1995. The building was constructed mostly with charitable gambling proceeds and grants. The Behnkes said they have the support of Scott County Library System Director Vanessa Birdsey to proceed with the expansion plans. They also appear to have the support of the city council, which at next Monday night’s regular meeting is expected to officially give the Friends of the Library authorization to proceed with an architectural drawing of the expansion. The Behnkes said the Belle Plaine Friends of the Library Board is always looking for new members. The annual membership fee is $5, which includes early entry into books sales, etc. For more information, call the library at 952-873-6767.

Cologne Council Turns its Focus to Former Melrose Administrator After about four hours of interviews Monday evening, the Cologne City Council hopes Brian Beeman will be the city’s next administrator. The council voted unanimously in favor of extending an offer to the former Melrose city official. The vote means Cologne’s personnel committee – Councilor Jill Skaaland and Mayor Matt Lein – will begin negotiations on a two-year contract with Beeman. Lein is anticipating formally hiring Beeman and approving a contract at Monday’s meeting (April 1). The city has been without an administrator since John Douville was fired last fall. The council extended an offer to a candidate earlier this winter, but rescinded the offer when he was not receptive to contract discussions. Beeman understands the workings of city government. His resume includes employment as city administrator in Melrose, Minn. from 2004-09 and one year in Sutton, Neb. before moving to Melrose. He has worked through complete budget cycles and is credited with enhancing Melrose’s development scene. He impressed Cologne city councilors with ideas of promoting commercial development in Cologne’s planned industrial park using tax-increment financing. “He told me things I didn’t know about,� Lein said. But Beeman’s departure from

Melrose in 2009 drew some discussion from the council. After four-plus years as its city administrator, the Melrose City Council voted to eliminate the administrator position during a period of budget cutting in the summer of 2009. Beeman told Cologne councilors the issue was rooted in politics. He reportedly opposed an aggressive timeline for building a new fire station in Melrose and objected to the council, which included three firefighters, for not following state bidding practices for purchasing a new fire truck. When applying for the city administrator position in North Mankato, Minn. last summer, Beeman told a reporter his performance reviews in Melrose were solid.

‘A Political Deal’

“It was kind of a political deal. Judging by the way the papers read, it was a very big political deal,� Lein said. “I’m comfortable with it. From what I’ve read, it looked very political.� Lein said the city would do a background check on Beeman if he accepts Cologne’s offer. Lein said that check would include a formal verification of Beeman’s salary while city administrator in Melrose compared to what the City of Melrose is now paying its administrator since reinstating the position. Beeman told councilors he made more there, about $76,000 annually,

than Cologne is comfortable paying its new administrator right away. “I have no problem with him making that in the future,� Lein said. “But we have to start somewhere.� Skaaland suggested the council could potentially enhance the new administrator’s salary after a successful evaluation six months into the job. “If we like what we see, we’ll bump you up,� she said. Beeman is a 12-year veteran of the U.S. Army and worked for two years as a Nebraska State Trooper before taking the job in Sutton, Neb. He received several educational post-secondary degrees including an associate of arts in criminal justice from Western Nebraska Community College and a bachelor of arts from Chadron State College. He received an associate of arts degree in business administration from Alexandria Technical College and a bachelor’s degree from G.R. Herberger School of Business at St. Cloud State University. Beeman earned his master’s degree in public administration from the University of Nebraska at Omaha. He is currently the CEO, president and part-owner of Quail Valley Investment Group, LLC. The company is a business consultant to Central Minnesota Small Business Development Center.

competition Saturday runs from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. The Belle Plaine team’s robot carries No. 4663 as its moniker. “We never thought to give it a name,” said Jeff Heine, the team’s advisor and the school district’s facilities director. He said there were some people who suggested naming it after Lowell Hoffman, former juniorsenior high principal, because of Hoffman’s staunch support for the robotics team. Heine and Kyle Iverson, a parent of one of the team’s members, has also been working with a handful of students who have formed Belle Plaine Junior-Senior High School’s first team. After six weeks of work, the Belle Plaine team bagged up its robot before the mandatory Feb. 19 deadline. The rules called for the robot to be in a sealed plastic bag by midnight. After a dozen successful climbs the previous weekend (Feb. 1617), the Cyber Tigers closed the bag at 8 p.m. confident they had done their best. When the team formed, there were members who didn’t know what to do with hand tools. Now, they’ve collectively designed and programmed a robot and attached basket that will allow it to score additional points.

plastic disc into a bin atop the pyramid. “We feel confident our machine will get us (an additional) 30-35 points,” Heine said. The competition at the U of M will be much more intense than 4663’s public debut at the Belle Plaine-Jordan basketball game last month. It presented the referee the game ball and during halftime helped mop the court. It also visited a school board meeting just down the hall from the team’s workshop on the second floor of the Belle Plaine School District’s District Center.

But in the regional competition, competing against larger and more experienced teams, the robot will need to perform without fail. Some of the teams they may compete against and later be aligned with have dozens of members and budgets up to $20,000. Belle Plaine has seven members and a budget of less than $7,000. That amount doesn’t necessarily include some staff time and several trips to Steffen’s Hardware, Menard’s, Fleet Farm or Home Depot. “We’ve got supplies for next year’s robot,” Heine said.

B.P. Teachers Using Technology to ‘Flip’ Their Class Lessons

A Belle Plaine High School student who once struggled with homework may now has a new way to receive information and work on it in class with assistance as needed. Belle Plaine Junior-Senior High teachers are using the district’s investment in technology to flip their classrooms. Flipping a classroom is more about presentation of information than gymnastics. A flipped classroom is one where students watch a lesson a teacher recorded in advance or is available online, either at home or in school during a study hall. Having heard the lesson on their own time, the students can then work on an assignment related to the lesson in class with the teacher available if they need assistance. Tony Von Bank, an English teacher at Belle Plaine JuniorSenior High School and the district’s leader in using the flipped classroom, presented an example of a flipped classroom to the Belle Plaine School

Board at its workshop March 11. Unlike the traditional model of lectures during the school day and homework outside of class, the flipped classroom is intended to allow students who need assistance on some facet of the lesson the help they need without holding up other students who are ready to move forward, Von Bank said. “If they don’t need help, they’re off to the races,” he said. Teachers can either record themselves or assign an approved presentations teachers around the country have created and placed on the Internet where students can view them. Von Bank told the board dealing with recording themselves is a challenge for some instructors. “Teachers feel they have to reinvent the wheel, but it’s already been done,” Von Bank told the board. Melissa Hanson, a math

OLP School Raises $3,580 Students at Our Lady of the Prairie could relax and celebrate after raising a total of $3,580 for their school this year through the annual Catholic Schools Raffle. Our Lady of the Prairie students took part in the Catholic United Financial fund-raiser that raised $923,635 for Catholic schools in Minnesota, South Dakota and North Dakota this year. Catholic United covers all costs associated with this raffle, printing more than 300,000 tickets and purchasing more than $54,000 in prizes. That means schools like Our Lady of the Prairie keep every dollar their children raise. “It’s a privilege to be part of something that does such direct giving back,” Catholic United Financial President Harald Borrmann said during the ceremony. Catholic United’s Spiritual Director, Bishop John M. LeVoir of the Diocese of New Ulm, presided, drawing winners from an 8-foot wide raffle drum. “It’s just excellent,” LeVoir said. “All the money goes back to the schools and [ticket buyers] have a chance to win prizes. It doesn’t get any better than that.” Along with the financial relief this program provides,

Our Lady of the Prairie’s top ticket seller was kindergartner Addisyn Giles, who, with the help of her family sold 120 tickets. Catholic United also rewarded top sellers and classrooms at each school, and the top three schools in terms of per-student ticket sales. The top performing schools included St. Francis of the Lakes of Brainerd (also the top-selling overall school), Holy Cross in Kimball and St. Mary’s in Pine City. Each will receive a SMARTboard package from Catholic United, valued at approximately $3,500. The Annual Catholic Schools Raffle has raised more than $2,011,000 for Catholic schools in Minnesota and the Dakotas since 2009. It will return in 2014 with goal of raising another $1 million.

teacher who frequently uses the flipped classroom model during her advanced math and algebra classes said students are using the flipped model – watching the presentation on their own time -- at a rate similar to the traditional model where they do homework on their own time.

‘Obvious Either Way’

Students not viewing the presentations at home is the exception and not the rule, since her students are “pretty motivated. “If they don’t, it’s pretty obvious,” she said. “But it’s obvious either way.” Flipping a class is also beneficial because it allows students to learn at their own pace. The flipped classroom is a tool the district is looking at for “improving academic achievement,” said Dave Kreft, principal at Belle Plaine Junior-Senior High School. It meets the needs of students who are growing increasingly accustomed to learning in a different way than their elders, thanks to access to the Internet and devices like laptops and iPads. “It’s not that dramatic a shift from the old model. It is still a lecture,” he said. Hanson sees it as a way to potentially improve test scores. “By flipping, you can maximize the time with students,” she said. Von Bank believes the flipped classroom is better suited, although not exclusively, for science, technology, engineering and math classes. In the humanities classes, many times “we still need to have the discussion” during a lesson. Von Bank told the board the widespread use of the flipped classroom requires coordination between teachers so students aren’t expected to watch three hours of presentations on any one night. For students without an Internet-ready laptop or iPad without Internet access at home are allowed time during a study hall or class time, Von Bank said. It is a piece of the school board’s overall consideration of further investment in technology, possibly even a one-to-one use of iPads or tablets for students, said Belle Plaine School District Superintendent Kelly Smith. “I think this is the first of a number of discussions the board is going to have on our investment in technology,” he said.

Cologne’s Benton Lake Has Too Much Phosphorus in It To meet state clean water standards, Benton Lake in Cologne needs a 74 to 79 percent reduction of algae, according to a Minnesota Pollution Control Agency draft report. The agency is taking public comment on the report. Excess algae interferes with fishing, swimming and boating, the MPCA said. The City of Cologne and a local lake conservancy group are working to clean up the lake and make it more user-friendly for anglers, boaters and swimmers. A new fishing pier is currently icebound and waiting for placement after the ice melts this spring. Water flows eastward from Meuwissen Lake in Benton Township into Lake Benton. An outlet channel allows water to flow through a stream south toward the Minnesota River. Discharge from Cologne’s wastewater treatment plant into a ditch system is among the possible sources of excess nutrients in the lake. The MPCA draft report says county staff also believes high levels of phosphorus are likely present in the lake sediments due to historical land use, point source discharges, and surrounding inflows. The report is available online at www.pca.state.mn.us/0agxa04. For more information, or to submit public comment on the report, contact Chris Zadak at chris.zadak@state.mn.us or by phone at (651) 757-2837.

Bald Eagles on Spring Migration Back to Minnesota Bald eagles are migrating back to Minnesota and may be seen in large numbers across parts of the state over the next few weeks, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR). “It’s definitely time for folks to keep their eyes out,” said Lisa Gelvin-Innvaer, DNR regional nongame wildlife specialist. “It all depends on the weather. It’s typical to see eagles coming through our area in mid-to-late March, as waters begin to open up and snow melts.” Only two states, Florida and Alaska, have greater nesting populations of bald eagles than Minnesota. In 2005, researchers estimated there are more

than 1,300 active nests in Minnesota. Fall migration typically occurs as lakes and rivers freeze over, since most eagles prefer a diet of fish. Bald eagle wintering grounds ideally contain open water, ample food, limited human disturbance and protective roosting sites. Not all bald eagles migrate southward in the fall, GelvinInnvaer said. In southern Minnesota, it’s common for some eagle pairs to stay the winter, especially during milder winters. “This winter has been a mixed bag,” she said. “We’ve had more snow and cold tempera-

tures than last year, making carrion a bit harder for eagles to find. However, this has been interspersed with periods of thawing and some open water.” Bald eagles that stay local may begin courting and nesting as early as December or January. Other bald eagles return to their breeding territories, as soon as a food source is available. “Eagle migration hotspots are a bit of a moving target, so it’s hard to say where the eagles are right now,” Gelvin-Innvaer said. “In Minnesota, the biggest migrations tend to be along the Minnesota River corridor, the north shore of Lake Superior and around Lake Pepin in southeastern Minnesota.”

Tiger Boys’ and Girls’ Win MRC Indoor Championships

by Dan Ruud The Belle Plaine High School boys’ and girls’ track and field teams picked up where they left off last May as they both won the Minnesota River Conference Indoor Championships Saturday at Minnesota State University, Mankato. The Tigers boys’ and girls’ teams were both victorious at last year’s MRC Outdoor Championships. The Belle Plaine girls continued their dominance at the MRC Indoor Meet in recent years as they again defended their title. The Tigers boys captured the crown after finishing third last year. Both Belle Plaine teams are scheduled to open their outdoor slate on April 4 at the Belle Plaine Athletic Complex. Other teams scheduled to compete include Mayer Lutheran, Jordan, Tri-City United and Lester Prairie. Events will start at 4:15 p.m. Boys’ MRC Indoor Results Senior Nick Eliason won two events and was second in another to help propel the Tigers to 154.38 team points. Jordan was second with 137.88, followed by Mayer Lutheran (110), TriCity United (93.75), Le SueurHenderson (65.50), Sibley East (58.88) and Norwood Young America (45.63). WatertownMayer did not compete. Eliason won the 55-meter dash in 6.94, just ahead of second-place C. Hull of Jordan (7.06). Eliason was also first in the 200 dash in 24.80. Mayer Lutheran’s J. Price was second in 25.03. Eliason placed second in the long jump with a distance of 18-11.50. Teammate Blayne Prochaska won the event with a leap of 19-02.00. Other first-place finishers for Belle Plaine were Zach Bahr in the triple jump (41-01) and Josh Spellman in the shot put (4111.50), which was 1 1/2 inches better than TCU’s J. Trnka. Taking second for the Tigers were David Schabelski in the pole vault (9-6) and Brady Johnson in the high jump (58). Also finishing second was the sprint medley relay team of Robert Nowak, Kyle Fahey, Jake Schultz and Dylan Bigaouette (4:17.0). Third-place finishes were turned in by Chris Holmbeck in the 200 dash (25.05), Carter Olson in the 1,000-meter run (3:01.0); and the 4x400 relay team of Holmbeck, Johnson, Nowak and Prochaska. Girls’ MRC Indoor Results The Tigers kept their MRC counterparts way back in the rearview mirror Saturday, scoring well over double the points of any other team. Belle Plaine piled up 205.50 points, followed by Mayer Lutheran (87.50), Jordan (79.50), TriCity United (79.50), Sibley East (74), Le Sueur-Henderson (73) and Norwood Young America (48). Watertown-Mayer did not compete. “We have a strong group of upperclassmen returning this season and a large talented group of ninth-graders that should make this team very deep,” said Belle Plaine coach Rich Foust. “We have several girls in each event who are capable of scoring. If they train hard and can stay healthy, this team could rival last season’s successful run.” The Tigers took first place in eight events, including three relays. The individual firsts were

BPHS Grad Selected as Space Foundation Teacher Liaison

by Sue Austreng, ABC Newspapers Those lacking a passion for aerospace and all things astronomical may say Nicole Fleming’s got her head in the clouds, stars in her eyes, ideas over the moon ... Turns out they’d be right. In fact, Fleming’s passion for space and science education made her an ideal candidate for one of the Space Foundation’s 2013 Teacher Liaisons. Fleming, the daughter of Connie and Dan Witt and a 2002 Belle Plaine High School graduate, teaches at University Ave. ACES (Aerospace, Children’s Engineering, and Science) Elementary School. She was notified in January that she had been selected as one of 20 educators from 13 states to participate in the 2013 flight of Teacher Liaisons. Teacher Liaisons serve as advocates for space-themed education, and will use Space Foundation-provided training and resources to further integrate space principles into the classroom. Fleming’s passion for space already spills into her thirdgrade classroom daily as she integrates science into math and reading lessons, sparks young imaginations and inspires exploration with art projects and lessons on physics, social studies and more. “It’s fun to see how excited students get, fun to integrate science into all curriculum,” Fleming said, sitting among constellations and orbiting planets dotting the walls in her classroom. Her selection as Space Foundation Teacher Liaison was made by a panel of past Teacher Liaisons and representatives from the United States space industry and the military. Fleming’s first year as Teacher Liaison, one deemed “probationary,” is one she’ll devote to promoting space education and helping fellow teachers get the necessary materials to further that education in the classroom. It also means she can take advantage of specialized training and instruction throughout the year at Space Foundation and NASA workshops. Fleming is also invited to participate in exclusive science,

Belle Plaine’s Carsen Sparks has earned plenty of hardware competing in trials motorcycle competitions. He’s one of the top riders for his age in the state and nationally.

A Veteran at 7, Belle Plaine Rider Makes Every ‘Trial’ Look Easy

Fellow University Ave. ACES educator Angela Voves Anderson was named Teacher Liaison last year and anticipates a great collaboration with Fleming, one which will greatly benefit students. “Space science really promotes imagination, it really ignites students’ thought process and inspires them with questions, inspires them to investigate,” Voves Anderson said. “We have more resources than you could ever imagine. I’m just very excited about this.” Fleming shares her colleague’s excitement and has already attended classes in Colorado and visited the Johnson Space Center in Houston since being named Teacher Liaison. “Space and the exploration of space really gets people wondering, gets them asking questions and wanting to learn more. No matter how much you know,

there’s still more to know and there’s always something new discovered,” Fleming said. University Ave. ACES already enjoys a partnership with the Observatory at Jackson Middle School in Champlin with students visiting the Observatory three times every year. Fleming and Voves Anderson also report that the Bell Museum’s ExploraDome routinely stops by the school, opening students’ eyes to even more exploration and their minds to deeper understanding of the universe. “There is so much to learn, so much to explore, so many resources, but we’re only in our second year as ACES charter school. We’re still evolving and as Teacher Liaison I will be able to access so many more resources. I’m very excited,” Fleming said, her head in the clouds, stars in her eyes, ideas over the moon.

Carsen Sparks doesn’t mind going fast on a bike. At 7, he’s learned all about the thrill of winning trophies on a small motorcycle. But in the Belle Plaine boy’s case, winning trophies isn’t about going fast over jumps and slinging dirt at those who can’t pass him. It’s all about control, balance and making good choices. The son of Angie and Chad Sparks, Carsen is one of the top riders in the state and the country for his age in a little-known motor sport called trials. He has a slew of hardware and stats to prove it. Carsen won the Upper Midwest Trials Association (UMTA) state championships in the youth class in 2009, 2010 and 2011. Moving up in age group to the adult novice class in 2012, he took fourth in the state last summer and won his first national championship competing in the 7 and under expert class at the AMA Youth National Trails Championships in Colorado. Trials requires a motorcycle rider to complete a course navigating hillsides, hair-pinned curves, rocks, up rises and down into depressions, tree stumps – most any obstacle nature has to offer – without dropping a foot to the ground to retain control of the motorcycle. Each touch of the foot to the ground – known as dabs – costs a rider a point. The fewer dabs a rider accumulates, the better. In each competition, the low score wins. Judges assign a rider who falls

Wickenhauser 4th Runner-up at State Miss Teen Competition

Cologne’s Hilary Wickenhauser recently finished as fourth runner-up in the Miss Teen Minnesota competition in St. Cloud. “It was one of the most fun weekends of my life,” Wickenhauser said. “Everyone I met was kind and supportive and I really appreciated it, especially since I was nervous. I do not think I have ever met such amazing people and I am very grateful that I had the chance to meet them and further myself.” Wickenhauser, Carver County’s Miss Teen, is the daughter of Anna and Don Wickenhauser. She is a student at Main Street School of Performing Arts in Hopkins and is a charter member of the Cologne Leos, the youth arm of the Cologne Lions Club. She has relatives in Belle Plaine as well. Megan Muehlberg of Brooklyn Park was crowned Miss Teen Minnesota. She’ll compete against the other state winners in the Miss Teen International 2013 July 27-28. “Megan Muehlberg, from Hennepin County, could not have been more deserving and I am very proud and honored to be a member of her queen’s court,” Wickenhauser said. “She is a beautiful, intelligent, sweet girl an I am so happy for her.” The other runners-up include Anna Kroger of Lakeville, Ella Harrison of Wadena County and Libby Yost of Shakopee. Wickenhauser said the experience has taught me many things. It has helped educate her on her platform, Can-Do Canines, the Norwood Young-America Times recently reported. “It has allowed me to meet some of the most caring, friendly, beautiful, smart girls who are all passionate about a platform and want to educated the public on it,” she said.

An Easter Treat Katelyn Ardette took time to savor some of the goodies she found hidden inside the plastic eggs she gathered during the tiny tots portion of the Easter egg hunt Sunday after 9 a.m. service at Trinity Lutheran Church. The 15-month-old daughter of Jenna and Luke Ardette was among a few dozen kindergartners and pre-schoolers looking for sweets in the school’s gym. Separate searches were held for older students in sections of the school.
