Mike Pingalore Will Move to Center of Table on City Council Halfway Through His Four-Year Term on Council, He Defeats Incumbent Mayor Tim Lies by 144 Votes
Nick Johnson (Harold Hill) and Taylor Bergland (Marian Paroo) are the lead characters in Belle Plaine Junior-Senior High School’s presentation of “The Music Man.” The musical will be presented Thursday through Saturday, 7 p.m., and Sunday, 2 p.m., in the Performing Arts Center within the Belle Plaine Schools District Center (former junior high) building. Tickets for Friday evening’s show are sold out.
For ‘Music Man’ Leads, The Songs are The Draw
Taylor Bergland and Nick Johnson enjoy music. They listen to a wide array of songs each day. Ask them both their favorite type of music and the answer is the same. “I don’t know.” But both Belle Plaine JuniorSenior High School students – Bergland a senior, Johnson a sophomore -- agree the songs in the fall musical, “The Music Man,” is what attracted them to seek the lead roles.
“The Music Man” will be presented in the Performing Arts Center within the District Center (former junior high) Nov. 15-18. The Thursday-Saturday performances are at 7 p.m. The Sunday performance is at 2 p.m. Tickets for the Thursday, Saturday and Sunday performances are available at the district ofﬁce. Johnson plays Harold Hill, a shyster who cons the towns-
Community Thanksgiving Service at OLP Next Tuesday Belle Plaine's Ecumenical Community Thanksgiving Service will take place at Our Lady of the Prairie Catholic Church next Tuesday, Nov. 20 at 7 p.m. The annual service is sponsored by the congregations of St. John Lutheran Church, Our Lady of the Prairie Catholic Church, First Presbyterian Church, Redeemer Lutheran Church, St. John’s Assumption Catholic Church and West Union Lutheran Church. Following the service, refreshments will be served. The entire community is invited. The Thanksgiving worship is also intended to remember the
needs of others. A monetary offering will be accepted during the service to support the local “Good Samaritan Fund” that provides help for transient people in the area. This fund is supported by the participating churches and the Thanksgiving offering is the main source of annual income for this fund. A generous offering of support for this ministry is needed and appreciated. In addition, worshipers are encouraged to bring nonperishable food items to be donated to the Belle Plaine Food Shelf. Monetary offerings are also welcome (made out to the Belle Plaine Food Shelf).
people of River City, Iowa out of their money to invest in a marching band. Bergland plays Marian Paroo, a prim and proper piano teacher who eventually falls for Hill. Both were cast for the lead roles because they have the ability to meet the demands of the songs in “The Music Man.” Bergland is a high soprano and Johnson a low tenor. Both have logged long hours since being named their roles working on the details of each individual musical number. Bergland said her friends have grown weary of listening to her sing the various songs from the play. “They’ve both worked very hard,” said Jerusha Zimmerman, one of the musical directors working on the play. “They’ve both been very receptive to instruction.” Johnson’s voice ﬁts into the songs he’ll sing in the play. He’s been working especially hard on “Trouble.” Johnson was initially worried about keeping up with the pace of the tune. “He’s ready,” Zimmerman said. Bergland was selected because

Chelsea Fogarty Breaks MSU Volleyball Record for Career Kills While Sister Competes at State by Dan Ruud It was a historic week of volleyball for the Fogarty family. Not only was Belle Plaine High School senior Haley Fogarty named to the all-conference and all-state volleyball teams, she recorded 47 kills and 61 digs in helping lead the Tigers to a fourth-place ﬁnish at this past weekend’s state tournament. While Haley was at Xcel Energy Center Friday evening for her team’s semiﬁnal match against top-ranked Marshall, her sister, Chelsea, was in Marshall as her Division II volleyball team, Minnesota State University, Mankato, was taking on highly-ranked Southwest Minnesota State University.
Chelsea, a senior at MSU, had 15 kills against the Mustangs to move to within 23 of the school’s all-time career record with one match to play. That ﬁnal match took place a little further westward Saturday as MSU traveled to take on the
University of Sioux Falls. Chelsea broke the record and then some as she smacked 26 kills to bring her career total to 1,558. Jen Jacobs (2000-03) had held

by Dan Ruud Belle Plaine Mayor Tim Lies received 426 more votes than he did when he was elected mayor over City Council Member Cary Coop in 2010 than he did in last Tuesday’s General Election. But this year included a presidential election and a higher number of people went to vote at the Belle Plaine Government Center, where Lies’ opponent, City Council Member Mike Pingalore, was able to reel in 1,601 votes to 1,457 for Lies. A record 3,313 people voted at the Belle Plaine Government Center last Tuesday, which was 96.03 percent of the city’s 3,450 registered voters. There were 2,278 votes cast at the Government Center in 2010, which was 64.9 percent of the then 3,505 registered voters. In the last presidential election year (2008), 3,199 people voted in Belle Plaine. That was 90.50 percent of what was then 3,535 registered voters. Pingalore has lived in Belle Plaine for nine years. He works for Taylor Corporation in sales and marketing. He and his wife, Tina, have three children – Jake, 11, Ella, 9, and Grace, 3. Pingalore said he is going to make economic development his top priority when he becomes mayor in January. “I’m going to work closely with staff to market Belle Plaine more and to solicit new businesses,” Pingalore said. Pingalore, like many others, said he would like to see an overpass built at the intersection of Highway 169 and County Road 3, but only if it can be done so without local taxpayers paying for most of it. If state and/or federal funding cannot be obtained, he would rather the project be done at a time when there are more businesses
Mike Pingalore to help share the cost. As for ﬁnding someone to replace him on the council, Pingalore said the council will have a couple of options to choose from, ranging from advertising for the job and appointing one of the applicants to not ﬁlling the seat at all and going instead with a permanent ﬁve-member council, the latter of which is being considered. Meanwhile, Lies has been on a political roller coaster ride of sorts for the past eight years. He was elected to the council in the 2004 General Election. He ran for reelection in 2008 but was knocked out of the race in the primary after ﬁnishing last among ﬁve candidates. Brad Krick was elected mayor that year but just months later, he died of cancer. Lies was among those who applied to replace Krick as mayor and was eventually the council’s selection to do so. Lies served the remainder of Krick’s term (almost two years) and was then re-elected in his nine-vote win over Coop in 2010. So what’s next for Lies? It won’t be the city council, even if the new council decides
to appoint a sixth member. “I’m not interested at all (being appointed to the council),” Lies said Monday. What he is interested in is forming a “sustainability” committee that he would like to organize and work on as a nonpaid volunteer. The purpose of the committee, which would be made up of community members, would be to examine economic and demographic trends that are going to shape Belle Plaine over the next 25 years. Although he won’t have a vote in the mater after Pingalore becomes mayor, Lies said he would not be in favor of changing to a ﬁve-member council. He would prefer it stayed at six. “With six members we’ve had to work a lot harder to get things passed. Sometimes with just a simple majority (ﬁve members) things can get passed that don’t get discussed enough,” Lies said.
Trost, Coop Retain Seats on Council
Coop, who lost to Lies in the mayoral race by just nine votes in 2010 (resulting in a recount), was involved in another close election this year and this time prevailed. He renewed his seat on the city council for another four years by ﬁnishing second among the three candidates who were vying for the two four-year terms. Coop, who has 16 years experience on the city council, edged challenger Kurt Laabs, a ﬁrst-time candidate, by 29

Dungey Looking Forward to Heading Back to Work Time Off a Chance to Recharge the Battery, Prepare for New Season He sat in Annie’s Café recently, enjoying breakfast and visiting with friends in Belle Plaine. It’s a long way from the crowded stadiums where most people see Ryan Dungey as a superstar on the motocross circuit rather than someone home to visit family and friends. Dungey headed back to work last week after a few weeks back in Belle Plaine. He’s been busy preparing for the indoor supercross season. It runs from early-January through May. After that, the races move to the big outdoor stadiums from lateMay through early-September. After that, Dungey will be in Germany in the festival of nations races. He’s scheduled to be back in Minneapolis Nov. 30 as part of a motocross event welcoming the sport back to the Metrodome after a ﬁve-year hiatus. Dungey ﬁnished third in

BELLE PLAINE HERALD, BELLE PLAINE, MINNESOTA
Pending Recount in Senate District 20, DFLer Dahle Wins Belle Plaine has a new state senator, someone who knows the area well and will have no trouble navigating his way around the Minnesota State Capitol. But Kevin Dahle, DFL-Northﬁeld, isn’t quite ready to celebrate. There’s a small matter of a recount between he and his Republican challenger, Mike Dudley of New Prague, to be addressed. Monday’s numbers from the Minnesota Secretary of State’s Ofﬁce in the race for Senate District 20, which includes Belle Plaine, has Dahle leading Dudley by 78 votes – 20,628 to 20,550 – a margin well within range of an automatic recount. The recount is slated for Nov. 28. Dahle is conﬁdent the ﬁnal numbers will stay at or near where they are. Dahle won a special election to the Senate in 2008. He lost his ﬁrst bid for re-election to Al DeKruif, R-Maple Lake, in the 2010 election. While redistricting renamed the senate district, from 25 to 20 and shifted it to the east, losing Sibley County, Dahle retained Rice County and the DFL stronghold of Northﬁeld. A teacher at Northﬁeld High School and Northﬁeld resident, Dahle beat Dudley in Rice County and Northﬁeld by 3,445 votes – 10,374 to 6,929. “We worked Northﬁeld especially hard. We made ﬁve or six passes, getting out our support-
ers, independents and moderates,” he said. But Dahle’s support wasn’t limited to Rice County. He held his own in Le Sueur County where Dudley won by 772 votes -- 6,064 to 5,292. It was in the southern tier of Scott County cities and townships where Dudley closed the gap. Dudley, who campaigned frequently alongside Rep. Kelby Woodard, R-Belle Plaine, won Belle Plaine, 1,655 to 1,453. Dudley won Scott County by 2,595 votes – 7,557 to 4,962. While Dahle noted greater support from Scott County this time around compared to ‘08 and ‘10, he also said the lack of a third candidate – John Grimm of Le Sueur, an independent – didn’t divide the vote and gave voters a clearer choice. Dahle credits many votes from young DFL voters participating in the presidential election for his success, voters who likely registered at the polls. Those are the same voters, he said, who potentially might have been opposed to registering at the polls had the voter ID amendment passed. Dahle campaigned against both amendments to the state constitution; Dudley favored their passage. The two men also differed on issues of taxes and the size of government.
Other Area Elections
At the county level, Carver County District 5 voters reelected James Ische of Hancock Township over Jim Walter of Cologne, 4,526 to 3,936. In area state legislative races around Belle Plaine, Republican Scott Newman of Hutchinson won re-election over DFLer Steve Schiroo of Cokato in Senate District 18, which includes Sibley County -- 22,556 to 16,180. In Senate District 47, which includes Carver County, Republican Julianne Ortman of Chanhassen defeated James Weygand of Carver – 27,128 to 15,297. In Senate District 55, which includes the northern threefourths of Scott County, Republican Eric Pratt of Prior Lake defeated DFLer Kathy Busch of Shakopee, 22,254 to 18,070. In the Minnesota House of Representatives in District 18B, which includes eastern Sibley County, Rep. Glenn Gruenhagen of Glencoe beat Logan Campa of Hutchinson, 11,053 to 7,971. House District 47 A, which includes much of Carver County, saw Rep. Ernie Leidiger, RMayer, defeat DFLer Keith Pickering of Watertown, 12,938 to 7,718. Belle Plaine’s former state Representative, David Bly of Northﬁeld, a DFLer, defeated Brian Wermerskirchen of Lonsdale, 11,700 to 8,843 in the race for House District 20B.

she is able to sing in both high and low soprano. She spent the summer in National Guard boot camp and her voice is notably stronger because of she’s in better physical condition. “Singing is very physically demanding,” Zimmerman said. “She’s able to meet the challenges of how ﬂexible her voice has to be. It’s like gymnastics.” Both Bergland and Johnson have also focused their individual and collective preparation on “Till There Was You,” a romantic duet.

Wagner Beats Kucera With Belle Plaine Voters’ Help
Entire Scott County Board Re-Elected
Commissioner Joe Wagner of Sand Creek Township held off a ﬁerce challenge from Belle Plaine native Jerry Kucera to win re-election and another term on the Scott County Board. Wagner beat Kucera by 290 votes – 6,453 to 6,163. The win marked the ﬁrst time in Wagner’s political career at the county level he carried Belle Plaine. “I hope over time, the idea that I have a business in Belle Plaine, pay taxes there and do business in town, people have accepted me,” he said. “Belle Plaine’s support is very important to me. I thank the voters.” It’s the second time he has defeated Kucera. The race came down to the ﬁfth precinct in Shakopee and results weren’t available until
Wagner Kucera Belle Plaine 1,587 1,457 Belle Plaine Twp. 258 250 Helena Twp. 457 433 Blakeley Twp. 106 141 Jordan P-1 814 783 Jordan P-2 475 412 Louiville Twp 288 413 Jackson Twp. 242 298 New Prague P-2 1,138 829 St. Lawrence 140 165 Sand Creek Twp. 457 395 Shakopee P-5 491 587 Wednesday morning after 4 a.m. Wagner’s efforts to build name recognition in the precinct held off Kucera’s familiarity with the area built on his insurance business in Shakopee. The ﬁfth precinct was added to the ﬁrst commissioner district to add population during county redistricting earlier this year. Given the lead he had, Wagner ﬁgured he’d retain his seat on the board if he won over 30 percent of the vote in Shakopee’s ﬁfth precinct.

“I appreciate people voting for me. It was a long and grueling race,” Wagner said. “Mr. Kucera is a worthy opponent. We are similar in some ways but different in others.” Kucera declined to answer questions on the outcome. His only comment was, “I am disappointed that I did not win, I am however grateful for all the support I did receive.” Wagner overcame a huge deﬁcit between the primary and general elections. Kucera carried Belle Plaine, Jordan, New Prague and Shakopee’s ﬁfth precincts plus four of the ﬁrst district’s seven townships in the primary. Wagner said he overcame the deﬁcit through newspaper and radio advertising, handaddressed targeted mailings to every voter in the district, strategically located signage with rotating messages along well-travelled roadways, literature drops and about 5,500 telephone calls reminding people to vote. The effort paid dividends. In the general election, Wagner won Jordan, New Prague and Belle Plaine. He also took Belle Plaine, Sand Creek and Helena townships.
Other Board Elections
In other Scott County commissioner races, Commissioner David Menden of Shakopee defeated Debbie Barber of Shakopee, 6,077 to 4,212. Commissioner Tom Wolf of Credit River Township defeated Brent Lawrence, 7,148 to 4,726. Commissioners Barbara Marschall of Prior Lake and Jon Ulrich of Savage both ran for re-election without challengers.
senior high, said both have the musical ability and maturity to handle the song. “The harmonies in it are the hardest part,” Johnson said. “If you’re off, it sounds really bad.” Jacobson was conﬁdent Johnson would be willing to work on the details of his character and its musical demands. He has been in previous plays, impressing the director with his work ethic and “dedication to theater,” she said. She’s also impressed by his on-stage charisma. “If you cast him, he will become Harold Hill,” Jacobson said. “We don’t worry. We don’t loose sleep over Nick.” Bergland ﬁgured herself a long shot to play Marian, not
for lack of ability but for experience other actresses brought to the stage. Although the other candidates for the female lead made the decision exceptionally difﬁcult, Bergland was selected for the role. “All the girls did a great job and it was a difﬁcult decision, but she (Bergland) showed up and was Marian. We saw Marian standing on stage,” Jacobson said. Bergland’s experience is primarily limited to community theater productions. Last year, she had a small role – the pastor’s wife -- in Anne of Green Gables. It was “a very small part,” Bergland said. “She worked very hard and has a gorgeous voice,” Jacobson said.

Old-Time Medicine Exhibit Coming to SCHS “What’s Up Doc? Medicine in Scott County” exhibit opens at the Scott County Historical Society on Nov. 15 with a presentation on old-time Medicine Shows at 6:30 p.m. by Susan Hynes in costume as a female “Huckster.” By the time Scott County was founded in 1853, scores of major medical advancements had been achieved. Doctors were listening to heartbeats with stethoscopes, using ether to deaden a patient’s nerves
during surgery, and vaccinating children against smallpox. Many people expected to live well into their 40s! Come see, hear, touch and smell a bit of Scott County’s medical history. The exhibit and related programming are sponsored by St. Francis Hospital. The Scott County Historical Society is located at 235 Fuller Street South in Shakopee. For more information contact the SCHS at 952-445-0378 or email@example.com.

November 12-16 is National Young Reader’s Week. You can go to www.bookitprogram.com at one of our internet stations to learn more. The program is sponsored by Pizza Hut through the “Center for the Book” in the Library of Congress. They have on-line reading events and programs to encourage reading. The web site has Facebook and Twitter links to blend in with modern ways of keeping in contact. Take a look at this program. It may just have that little extra thing that inspires your young reader. In my weekend reading, I learned that November 14 is the birthdate anniversary of Claude Monet. If you are like me you recognize the name. You may know that he was a painter. The most recent reference I had seen to Monet was in a newer Woody Allen movie called “Midnight In Paris” which your library has available on DVD. Claude Monet was born in 1840 and died in 1926. I have to admit that I could not name any of his paintings. After a bit of reading, supplemented by some internet searches, I was able to see some of his work. The best web page that I found was at URL:http:// www.ibiblio.org/wm/paint/ auth/monet/. I had seen some of it before but I also learned something new. If you enjoy art or feel that you would like to learn more. This is a good opportunity for you. Between art books in the library and our internet stations, you can do some serious exploring. You then can enjoy and interesting modern movie with references to that period of art in history. Come to the library. We can help you with the entire variety of resources. The Adult Book Club that meets here at the Belle Plaine Library on the 4th Thursday of each month at 7 p.m. is looking for new members. If you would like to join the club, stop at the library for more information. Our next meeting is on November 29th (5th Thursday this month). The group is reading “Those Who Save Us” by Jenna Blum. Join us for Fall Story Time this Friday, November 16 at 10:30 a.m. Our theme will be Turkeys!

Belle Plaine Public Schools and Cologne Academy are among the many schools throughout the state once again asking Minnesotans to display their record-breaking generosity by donating to their favorite charities and schools online at www.GiveMN.org during the fourth annual “Give to the Max Day” Nov. 15. Money donated to Belle Plaine Public Schools and Cologne Academy will directly support the district’s mission of continuing to provide “excellence from everyone, everyday.” People can also find a link to GiveMN. org on both schools’ Web sites – www.belleplaine.k12.mn.us and www.cologneacademy.org “We set single-day records for philanthropic giving in 2009, 2010 and 2011, and want to keep that streak going in 2012,” said Dana Nelson, executive director of GiveMN, which debuted in fall 2009 as the firstof-its-kind giving Web site and sponsors Give to the Max Day. “This is a day for us to come together as Minnesotans and show our support for the nonprofit organizations and schools that work tirelessly to strengthen our communities.” During last year’s Give to the Max Day, 47,534 donors logged on to GiveMN.org and donated $13.4 million raised for 3,978 Minnesota non-profit organizations whose missions range from feeding the hungry, protecting the environment, and promoting the arts. GiveMN hopes to again raise millions of dollars for thousands of nonprofits and schools, showcasing
Minnesota’s unparalleled generosity to the world. In September of 2012, GiveMN launched “Schools on GiveMN,” allowing K-12 public schools to fundraise on the site and offering giving solutions for parents, friends and neighbors to support the genuine needs of schools and students without purchasing unnecessary products. During Give to the Max Day, 2012 K12 public schools will be eligible for prize grants in the form of hourly “Golden Tickets” – an hourly drawing to add $1,000 to a person’s donation, randomly
selected from donors who gave during each hour of the event. At the end of the event, one K12 public schools donor will be drawn to receive a Super-sized Golden Ticket, adding $10,000 to their donation. At GiveMN, Minnesota nonprofits and schools can showcase their work and introduce their organizations to potential donors. Customized profiles of Minnesota charities detail their individual missions, programs and events. The site also lets donors manage their charitable giving by recording online contributions and storing receipts.
Two Men Apply for Jordan School Board Vacancy A former Jordan School Board member and a JHS alum are the two candidates to fill unexpected opening on the school board. Donald Beuch and Kevin Brox applied for the opening created when Director Dan Buresh recently resigned without notice. The opening is for the final year of Buresh’s term. Directors interviewed the two men this week. The board is expected to decide which of them will be appointed to the vacancy shortly after the interview process concludes, said Superintendent Kirk Nelson. In his letter of interest, Beuch
said he has two children attending JHS. He graduated from Jordan high in 1969. He also said he served on the Spring Lake Township Board of Supervisors and was chairman of the Scott County Historical Society for six years. Brox served on the school board in 2004 and ’05. He applied for an opening in 2010 but the board selected Director Bob Volbrecht for the vacanacy. Brox said he is a parent of seven JHS graduates and has lived in the community for 23 years. -- Jordan Independent

Thirty Years Ago This Week
David Spellman, who lived just outside of Blakeley, had a big job on his hands in caring for his new pets. His Saint Bernard, Daisy, had 17 puppies in November 1982. Five of the newborn dogs died as Daisy could only feed 10 of her litter at one time. Davidâ€™s parents, Lynn and Dennis, had another St. Bernard, Bernie, who was the father of the newborns. They planned to sell the pups. According to Lynn, raising the Saint Bernards was â€œDavidâ€™s project.â€? senior Janelle French, juniors Jill Hoelz, Sharon Meger, Jody Schmitz, Stacy Kerkow, and freshman Laurie Wolpern. The Le Center Wildcats were within one win of being the Class B state football champions for 1982 after defeating Kasson-Mantorville in the semifinals. Le Center would meet the Mahnomen Indians in the state championship game that coming Saturday at the brand new Metrodome. It would be the first Prep Bowl game ever played in the cozy indoor confines. Le Centerâ€™s Tim Palmquist became the answer to a trivia question as he scored the first touchdown in Prep Bowl history on a pass from Todd Anderson. The Wildcats won the Class B title over Mahnomen 12-6.

A Big Undertaking
What began as a $20,000 study by the Metropolitan Council more than a decade previous would become a $2.5 million reality at 12:01 a.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 1, 1982. Thatâ€™s when the 9-1-1 emergency phone system would begin operating throughout Scott and Carver counties along with the other five counties that comprised the metropolitan area. The three digits, 9-1-1, would replace more than 200 emergency police, fire and medical phone numbers. It would be the first multi-county emergency calling system in the nation and would serve 189 communities and 1,137,000 phone customers with more than 2 million phones. The system was so simple that a small child would be able to call for emergency help. The Belle Plaine Community Thanksgiving Service would be held on Thanksgiving morning, Nov. 25, at 9 a.m. in the high school auditorium. The Belle Plaine skating rink had not yet been flooded but heavy rains toward the end of the week, followed by temperatures plunging into the low teens was all that was needed for Sunday skating on On Nov. 14. Because of an injury to one of the cast members of Belle Plaine High Schoolâ€™s production of â€œMatchmaker,â€? that Saturdayâ€™s presentation was postponed and rescheduled for Saturday, Nov. 29. The production was cancelled when Kirk Hardwick was hurt after a prop gun, loaded with blanks, went off and injured his eyes. Hardwick had returned to school and would be in the coming Saturdayâ€™s performance. BPHSâ€™s Sandi Schmidt, a junior hitter/setter, was named to the 1982 All-Minnesota River Conference volleyball team. Diane Savage received honorable mention. The BPHS girlsâ€™ basketball team was preparing for that coming Fridayâ€™s season opener at Waterville. The Tigers, who lost three starters from the previous yearâ€™s district runner-up team, had five returning lettermen back. Included were seniors Mary Leonard (all-conference returnee), Diane Savage, Melanie Martin and Connie Mueller, and junior Sandi Schmitt. In addition to these players were

One farmer decided the Lord would understand and chose to spend his Sunday to get the hay in ahead of the rain. As he came down the road with a full wagon load, he met the preacher who looked at him rather angrily. â€œReverend,â€? the farmer explained, â€œItâ€™s better to be sitting on this hay thinking about God than sitting in church thinking about the hay.â€? Nov. 7 News: Word on Father Dave is that he can stand and walk up to 20 minutes and will be going to his parentsâ€™ home soon to continue therapy. We are asked to continue our prayers. Shirley Bodin, Bonnie Valek, Helen Kager, Rosie Schoenecker and Deanie Sticha, daughters of the late Norbert and Viola Weiers, took Friday off from their busy work schedule to visit their Weiers aunts and uncles at the Flavian and Edna Weiers home, Leona Weiers home, Viola Michel home and Francis and Roselyn Weiers home. Us aunts and uncles truly appreciated this gesture and we all had a good time reminiscing and laughing. Many from here enjoyed the breakfast at the K.C. Hall last Sunday. The K.C. men did a good job cooking. Humor Corner: Ole was an avid bird watcher so Lena enrolled him in a class on birds. At the first class meeting there was a test. The teacher put up a chart showing different bird legs and the students were to identify the bird that each pair of legs belonged to. Ole would have none of it. â€œI ainâ€™t taking dis stupid test. How should I know what bird the legs belong to?â€? The teacher was upset. â€œIâ€™ll tell you what, mister, you can leave now and Iâ€™ll just give you a big F in my grade book. Now whatâ€™s your name?â€? Ole stood and pulled up his pants legs exposing his bony shins and said, â€œYou tell me, smart aleck.â€?

Wednesday - 4:30 p.m., Word and Communion Service. * * * * * Father Dave is now at the home of his parents and will be continuing therapy. Father had a brief article in the Sunday bulletin explaining his illness and slow recovery. Father Roger Hessian so kindly had our Masses this weekend. Don and Charlene Skluzacek visited Sunday, Veterans Day, with her parents, Buddy and Rosella Riesgraf at Kingsway in Belle Plaine. Buddy is a World War II veteran. Some folks from here enjoyed the Veterans Day Dance at the Park Ballroom. It was a jampacked event. Relatives were informed of the death of Bill Schoenecker, 44, of Minneapolis. He is a son of Clarissa (Barten) Schoenecker and the late Lee Schoenecker of St. Paul. While my husband, Flavian and myself were ordering food at McDonaldâ€™s, Sunday evening, a nice young man standing behind us came forward, paid our bill and said, â€œHappy Veterans Day!â€? Flavian was wearing his Korean Veterans cap. We truly appreciated this nice gesture and thank him again. The Sunday 8:30 a.m. Mass at St. Wenceslaus was dedicated to the veterans. Breakfast was served at the Park Ballroom club room afterwards. Pete and is crew cooked a tasty breakfast. Don and Charlene Skluzacek celebrated with his family, their grandsonâ€™s, Wayden Whiteâ€™s 5th birthday on November 7. Humor Corner: The Lord understands: As long as there have been farmers, there has been the dilemma of whether to be in church on Sunday or to make hay while the sun shines.

Zumba, itâ€™s the hottest aerobic fitness craze, thatâ€™s all about dancing, party-style, to exhilarating music. A Zumba class is a full hour of continuous dancing to Latin and international social-dance music. It provides a high level of aerobic exercise and is structured according to the same principles as interval training, alternating between fast and slow musical selections. But unlike most fitness classes, Zumba involves virtually no talking. Youâ€™re having so much fun dancing around that you donâ€™t realize youâ€™re exercising. Come join the party.

Congratulations to our girlâ€™s volleyball team as they competed in the State Volleyball Tournament this past weekend and came home with a 4th place trophy. Congratulations also to Mariena Hayden for being named to the All Tournament Team. Great job, girls and coaches, on a tremendous season and thank you for representing our community so well throughout the year! Next Monday and Tuesday are Parent-Teacher conferences for 7th through 12 grade. I encourage all parents to attend these conferences and make a connection with your childâ€™s teachers. Conferences begin each day at 3:30 p.m. and continue through 7:30 p.m. Hope to see you there! Several weeks ago I attended a meeting about Minnesota School Finance Trends, Issues, and Reform Options hosted by the MN Department of Education. The presentation consisted of some historical information regarding school finance, current school finance issues and some recommendations about school funding reform from the 2011 School Finance Working Group. Information and documents regarding the work of the finance groups may be found at: http://www.education.state. mn.us/MDE/Welcome/AdvBCT/EducFinanWork/index.html. The following are recommendations of the working group that concluded their work in May, 2011: 1. Invest in early learning, with resources targeted first to allday kindergarten for students living in poverty. 2. Roll a portion ($400) of referendum levies into the general education formula. 3. Establish a uniform general education levy by consolidating and replacing existing school levies, including a portion of existing referendum levies rolled into the formula. 4. Simplify funding formulas and student accounting to make E-12 education funding more understandable and transparent. 5. Reform basic skills funding. 6. Refocus integration funding. 7. Recognize and reward growth in student achievement. 8. Reform special education tuition billing. 9. Recognize regional cost differences. 10. Restore inflation-adjusted general education formula to FY 2003 level. 11. Reduce charter school lease aid. In addition to the recommendations made by the 2011 School Finance Working Group, the 2012 Working Group is considering additional recommendations such as: A. Special education funding reform. B. Facilities funding reform. C. Teacher evaluation/effectiveness funding. D. Improved school levy equalization. E. Further simplification of school funding. That is a long list of recommendations that will be presented to the 2013 Legislature for possible action this year or sometime in the future. For years we have heard that school funding and finances are much to complicated in Minnesota. These recommendations attempt to simplify the system while striving to make it more fair and equitable for all students and school districts in Minnesota. I hope that our legislative bodies will give strong consideration to the recommendations of the two School Finance Working Groups. 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!

Incumbents, Newcomers BPHS Students Can Take Elected in Cologne, Green Isle received 209 votes and Oelfke got 189 votes. Todd Burg, Shawn Harms and Joe Lemke all won two-year terms on the city council. Burg received 115 votes, Harms 100 and Lemke 84 votes. Other contestants for the two-year terms included Jamey Hecksel (62 votes) and Chet Stuewe (57). All terms in the 2012 election begin Jan. 1. Appointed councilors Steve Wilson and John Schauer did not seek election to the city council.
Green Isle Selects Firm to Demolish Eustis Building Years after deeming it a public safety hazard and condemning it because of its deteriorating condition, the Green Isle City Council accepted the low bid of an Arlington company to demolish the building adjacent to city hall. Last Monday (Nov. 5), the council voted 3-0 to accept the low bid of M.J. Neisen Construction to raze the building Michele Volkenant and Lee Eustis own at 130 Grove Street S. Neisen’s bid of $21,850 was the lowest of five bids the city received. The council will hire a firm to perform asbestos abatement on the building. The abatement should cost about
$3,200. The city will assess the cost of asbestos abatement and demolition of the building to the taxes on the property. Eustis told the council he would pay the city for the abatement and razing. He asked the city to spread out repayment of the bill. Eustis first asked the city to delay the vote on companies to abate asbestos and raze the building to seek more bidders, a request the council declined. He also encouraged the city to seek grants for its renovation and then accused the city council of being opposed to historic buildings in Green Isle. However, Mayor Randal
Bruegger noted it’s not the city’s job to seek funds to renovate privately-owned buildings.
Councilor Steve Wilson submitted his resignation from the city council last week. Wilson periodically misses council meetings because of work commitments. He told the council he would miss two of the last four meetings before the end of 2012. The council will not appoint anyone to replace Wilson. He was appointed in September of 2011 to replace Councilor Laurie Pepin and fill a term she won in 2010.

Friday’s Lessons to Heart
Belle Plaine High School students will get a life-saving lesson this week that will potentially help all students, both now and in the future. Friday (Nov. 16), about 475 students in ninth through 12th grades, will spend the second half of the morning being trained by Ridgeview Medical Center paramedics, EMTs, members of the Belle Plaine fire and police departments, and other volunteers, on cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and the proper use of an automatic external defibrillator (AED). They’ll also hear the story of someone who was saved by the use of both. “Sudden cardiac arrest kills one person every two minutes, but with just one minute of training, anyone could save another person’s life. If administered within minutes of seeing an adult collapse, compression-only CPR can double or even triple a person’s chance of survival,” said Kevin Sipprell, MD, Ridgeview Emergency Department physician. The training will meet a state graduation requirement that all students be trained in the use of CPR and AEDs. That requirement is to be in effect by 2014, said Belle Plaine Junior-Senior High School Principal Dave Kreft. The day’s lessons are germane
thanks to the experience of Belle Plaine staff, police officers, firefighters and paramedics earlier this fall when junior high football coach Ken Wick collapsed on the practice field when his heart malfunctioned. The use of CPR and an AED saved Wick’s life. Wick will present his survivor’s story to students in the junior-senior high’s north gymnasium at the end of the morning, a scheduled half-day for the junior-senior high’s students. The day will begin with CPR training in the south gymnasium. Ridgeview Medical Center will supply mannequins for students. Students will also view a one-minute video explaining the simple, two-step process of
compression-only CPR. The students will learn what to do if they see an adult collapse -call 9-1-1, then push hard and fast on the center of the victim’s chest. Ridgeview is funding the training through a $10,000 grant to provide compression-only CPR training to the general public in mass settings – such as in schools and at the Carver County Fair and Minnesota State Fair. Grant funds are being used to purchase educational materials and supplies to conduct the training. Staff from Ridgeview Medical Center Emergency Department, Ridgeview paramedics and emergency medical staff will be available to answer questions.

(continued from page 1) out of the top spot in motocross. Heâ€™s aiming to move up when the new season begins. But after 30-plus weeks of competition and travel, Dungey was ready for a break. He was home to visit his parents and spend time here with girlfriend Lindsay Siegle. The time home is a chance to mentally unwind, relax and heal muscles weary from the racing seasons before heading back to his residence in Florida and the start of the season. At 22, Dungey is still young in a sport where racers more often than not have retired by 30. â€œItâ€™s great to have two or three weeks of downtime and hanging out. Itâ€™s good to just shut down and give your body a break,â€? he said. â€œOur sport is very physical. Youâ€™re always on the go. For me, this is like a vacation.â€?
Made for TV
Dungey has enjoyed significant success the past few years, the kind of success that has drawn attention to his hometown, Belle Plaine. In 2009 Ryan stormed onto the motocross scene winning both the Lites Supercross Championship and the 250 Motocross Championship. The world would quickly learn that he was just getting warmed up. In 2010 Ryan became the second motocross rider in the history of the sport to win the 450 Supercross Championship and the 450 Motocross Championship in his rookie season. He then went on to lead the USA to victory in the Motocross of Nations that same year. Last year, he led the USA to victory at the Motocross of Nations. That kind of success has drawn media attention. Last summer, a camera crew traveled to Belle Plaine to do a profile on Dungey. The crew was in town during the annual Bar-B-Q festivities. Along with interviews, they also visited his parentsâ€™ home chronicled his development in the sport.

A New Ride
Dungey has an optimistic look for the new season. Heâ€™s switching to a new motorcycle, from the Suzuki to the KTM (Kronreif & Trunkenpolz Mattighofen) 250 cc to the 450 cc. The change was facilitated by what Dungey describes as a change of focus. Whether it was the impact of the down economy and budget reductions on the companyâ€™s racing efforts, he saw Suzuki more interested in the business aspect of the operation. Dungeyâ€™s focus has always been on winning races. The teamâ€™s manager, Roger DeCoster, and engine man, Ian Harrison, made the jump to KTM, two men Dungey credits for much of his success. â€œThey were the driving forces behind our team,â€? Dungey said. So when his contract with Suzuki lapsed, Dungey made the jump to KTM. Heâ€™s glad to be reunited with DeCoster and Harrison. â€œAs a rider, you need good people, people trying to make the bike better,â€? he said. â€œItâ€™s a better environment.â€? He has been working becoming more comfortable on the KTM 250cc and 450cc motorcycles. Dungey figured theyâ€™d be much different than the Suzuki motorcycles and wondered how long it would take him to adapt. Among the most conspicuous differences is KTMâ€™s steel chassis. It is more flexible and absorbs more of the impact of landing after a jump, a feature that spares Dungeyâ€™s body from the brunt of the shock. â€œIt has a little bit more flex,â€? he said.
