Businesses to Light Up Thursday

Time to Come Down Boy Scouts and their leaders in Belle Plaine Troop 324 took down the American flags Saturday that have flown in Veterans Park since just before Memorial Day. The flags will be inspected and carefully put away. Those unsuitable for use next spring will be honorably retired.

City Tax Hearing Next Monday The Belle Plaine City Council will hold its annual budget and tax levy public hearing 6 p.m. next Monday, Dec. 3 at the Belle Plaine Government Center, 218 North Meridian Street downtown. On Sept. 4, the council adopted a 2013 preliminary property tax levy of $4,528,272, an increase of $228,635 (5.3 percent) over this year’s levy of $4,299,637, which was a 2.7 percent increase over the 2011 levy. The 5.3 percent increase for 2013 represents only the city’s

portion of your property tax bill. County and school taxes are not included. Of the 5.3 percent property tax increase, Belle Plaine Finance Director Dawn Meyer said 3.3 percent will go toward increases to the budget. The other 2 percent will go toward expenses associated with the city’s recent purchase of its public works building. For property owners with an average-value home of $167,400, the 5.3 percent hike

will represent approximately a $132 increase on the city’s portion of their property taxes in 2013. Feedback from any resident wishing to comment on the city’s proposed budget and property tax levy for 2013 will be accepted by the council at next Monday’s hearing. The council will adopt the final 2013 property tax levy and budget in December, perhaps next Monday. At that time the preliminary levy can be decreased but not increased.

B.P. School District’s Annual Tax Hearing Monday If Necessary, Second Meeting Dec. 10

Although a proposed .44 percent increase in the Belle Plaine School District’s operating levy next year isn’t expected to draw residents to the annual Truth-in-

Taxation hearing in droves, the district will nonetheless host the annual meeting Monday (Dec. 1, 6 p.m.) in the District Center. The proposed .44 percent increase is well below the 1.39 percent increase in the levy the district preliminarily set in September. The reduction is the result of refined information from

the Minnesota Department of Education, said Chuck Keller, the school district’s business manager. The school board will formally approve the operating levy for the coming year at its Dec. 17 (6 p.m.) meeting. Although the district is not certain the impact a .44 percent increase will have on individual properties within the Belle Plaine School District in Scott, carver, Sibley and Le Sueur counties, Keller is certain any tax increase attributable to Belle Plaine School District will be “very minimal.” Because of a mix-up on dates sent to district residents within Scott County residents, Superintendent Kelly Smith told the board Monday night (Nov. 26) he will also present the information to any interested residents who attend a second meeting, this one Dec. 10, 6 p.m., in the District Center. The proposed 2013 levy will generate an additional $19,326.38 – increasing the school district’s operating levy to $4,449,120.14. The overwhelming majority of the district’s $13-plus million in revenue arrives in formuladriven per-student state aid and a voter-approved excess operating levy. The district is reducing the amount it levies for debt service and community education. The only significant increase in the general fund is for negotiated retirement health care benefits for teachers hired pre-

Pasek on Administrative Leave

Belle Plaine police officer Bryan Pasek has been placed on administrative leave pending the outcome of an investigation following his arrest for DWI Nov. 20 on Highway 169 between Jordan and Belle Plaine. Citing advice from legal counsel, Belle Plaine city officials are not saying whether Pasek is on paid or unpaid leave. City Administrator David Murphy said that once the disciplinary procedure is completed, then the issue of whether Pasek has been on paid or unpaid leave Poultry Social will become public information. Bingo Change Pasek was stopped by a state The Poultry Social Bingo at trooper on Highway 169 bethe Vets Club will be held 8 tween Jordan and Belle Plaine p.m. Friday, Dec. 7, not Friday, at 2:26 a.m. He was allegedly Nov. 30 as stated in the chamber postcard that was recently mailed to residents.

traveling 96 mph in a 65 mph zone. A portable breath test indicated Pasek had a blood-alcohol concentration of .17, which is more than twice the legal limit. Pasek, 32, was arrested and booked into the Scott County Jail for third-degree DWI, a gross-misdemeanor. He has since posted bail. Pasek was also arrested for DWI in the fall of 2003, not long after he joined the BPPD. He reportedly paid a $1,025 fine, served 100 hours of community service and was suspended without pay for three days. The Scott County Attorney’s office has forwarded the latest case to Carver County to avoid any possible conflict of interest.

‘Tis the Season Belle Plaine Boy Scouts and Rotarians gathered outside the city police station at the corner of North Elm and East Main streets Saturday afternoon to assemble the community Nativity scene, a popular symbol of the holiday season. The diorama was first presented 61 years ago.

Another Wolf Ridge Trip in the Memory Banks

The ďŹ rst phone calls were made at 5 a.m. Oct. 22, beginning the phone tree making sure everyone was up and ready to begin their one of a kind journey to the North Shore. By 6:30 am, kids and parents were piling into the Oak Crest commons by the dozens. With the help of some much appreciated parents, the buses were packed, the kids had their directions and Belle Plaine’s annual ďŹ ve-day, four-night Wolf Ridge excursion was underway. “We were driving to Wolf Ridge and I was thinking about all the things I was going to do. I imagined myself going down the zip line, the wind blowing through my hair, screaming as loud as I can; the 30foot rock wall and kissing the white goat at the top. To look down Marshall Mountain and see the amazing views of Lake Superior,â€? was all sixth-grader Jamie Zahn could think of on the way up to Wolf Ridge - Environmental Learning Center (E.L.C.). When asked if she accomplished all she had set out to do, her reply was, “yes, it was a great experience.â€? After a few rest stops, the buses pulled into Wolf Ridge around 11:45 am. Organized chaos ensued with unpacking the buses. Within a half-hour, the kids were enjoying their ďŹ rst Wolf Ridge meal, meatball subs. Within 90 minutes, the students were thrust into action, participating in their ďŹ rst of 11 classes for the week. The demanding schedule doesn’t leave much time to acclimate. So the students have to rely on their preparation and adaptability. The average day at Wolf Ridge begins with a 7:15 a.m. wake-up call, followed by breakfast. The ďŹ rst class then runs from 8:30 to 11:30, followed by lunch. The afternoon classes run from 1:15 to 4:15, followed by dinner. The average evening class goes from 6:15 to 8:15, followed by an evening naturalist program, which is very interactive with the students, that ends at about 9:15. The three naturalist programs were Raptors, History of

the North Shore, and Bats. “I enjoyed the Raptor Program because it was cool to see the owl eat the mouse!â€? professed Justin Stauffacher. The students then ďŹ nish out with daily journaling, get ready for bed, and lights out around 10:15. Wolf Ridge consists of 2,000 acres found on Minnesota’s North Shore, just outside of Finland. Breathtaking views and wildlife are a constant at all the overlooks, through the trees, from the top of Marshall Mountain, or the shores of Wolf or Raven Lake. Many miles were logged as the students can vouch for the distance between each class. However, Jamie O’Brien would like it known, “E.L.C. is one of the greatest places I’ve ever been to. It was so fun! I wish I could go again.â€? Fun, educational, self deďŹ ning, and physically rigorous all while electronic device free? Who’d have thunk it? Grace Wallert discovered, “The thing I learned about myself up at E.L.C. was that I can accomplish things I thought I couldn’t and that I’m braver than I think I am.â€? Rock Climbing, Geology, Voyageur Life, First Games, Lake Study, Wetlands Ecology, Trees & Keys, Adventure Ropes, Forest Ecology, Animal Signs, Birds, Ojibwa Heritage, Changing Climates, Beavers, Geo Caching, Canoeing, Star Lab, Fisheries Management, Renewable Energy, Weather, and Small Mammals round out the classes offered by Wolf Ridge and its staff. The students embraced each of the classes offered by the Wolf Ridge staff and enjoyed participating whenever they could. “Adventure Ropes will teach you to take your trust to different heights and levels,â€? stated Lauren Tesch. “I learned at Wolf Ridge that teamwork is a really big thing in your life,â€? added Sarah Johnson. When asked about Rock Climbing, Tatum Ackerman

commented, “It helps a person trust more people and to make new friends. It also helps you overcome your fear of heights.â€? Mikkel Schmidt recalled on Beavers class that, “It was cool to learn about what they can do in an environment.â€? “In Renewable Energy you get to learn how to save the earth in a fun way!â€? added Colin Schultz. Alexus Reck divulged about Voyageur Life, “It’s so fun! You get to cook, sing and go canoeing. But watch out for the Northwest Company, those stinky pig dogs!â€? Black Bears, Superior View Hike, Photography, Block Printing, Stargazing, Dreamcatchers, Voyageur Canoe, TShirt Design, Night Hikes and Rainsticks are all the classes taught by the Belle Plaine staff. “Dreamcatchers was probably my favorite evening class. I’ve always wondered how to make one. When I got home, I made another!â€? expressed Siri Kuhn. Garrett Meeuwen speciďŹ ed, “You need lots, lots and lots of patience for Dreamcatchers, but it’s fun.â€? “Now I have my own T-shirt that I MADE! I think that is really cool,â€? chimed Tyson Fahey referring to T-Shirts class. Levi Schmidt afďŹ rmed on the Night Hike, “It’s fun to get scared!â€? By the time Friday morning rolled around, the students were still going strong. They were sad they were going to their last class. They were sad they were leaving Wolf Ridge. However, they were elated to make that stop in Duluth, and what many were thinking, but not saying, was how excited they were to see their family again. The welcome home at Oak Crest couldn’t have been better. The kids were welcomed back to open-armed parents, siblings, grandparents and friends. After it was all said and done, Noah Dauwalter testiďŹ ed, “Wolf Ridge, I’ve got to say, was a blast.â€?

1989. Keller said that amount will dwindle over time as those teachers reach the age where they draw Medicare. Still softening the potential property tax hit of the proposed increase is the ongoing reduction in the value of all property within the Belle Plaine School District. In 2010, the overall value of property in the district was valued $885.7 million for taxation purposes. In 2011, the year being used for the 2013 levy, county assessors valued the same property at $858.5 million, a 3.08 percent decrease from 2010 to 2011.

Farmers, Ag Businesses Can Obtain Grants Through New Program Minnesota agricultural producers and processors can now apply for grants to implement value added projects to their operations. A total of $700,000 in funding was made available through the Agricultural Growth, Research and Innovation Program (AGRI), established by the legislature to advance Minnesota’s agricultural and renewable energy industries. The Minnesota > Department of Agriculture (MDA) will distribute the funds through its AGRI Value Added Grant Program that aims to increase sales of Minnesota agricultural products by diversifying markets and by increasing market access and food safety. Specifically, these grants are intended to: _ Initiate or expand livestock product processing. _Create feasibility, business, marketing and succession plans for existing and new businesses. _ Purchase equipment to initiate, upgrade, or modernize value added businesses. – Increase on-farm food safety, such as implementation of a food safety plan. – Increase farmers’ processing and aggregating capacity to enter farm-to-school and other markets. Proposals that have a meat processing, farm-to-school (or other institution) component, or are addressing Good Ag-

ricultural Practices (GAP) or similar type of food safety plan will receive priority, but all value added proposals are encouraged to apply. Small- to medium-sized operations will also receive special consideration. Proposals that include business planning, feasibility studies, marketing planning and succession planning are eligible for 50 percent of the total project cost up to a maximum grant award of $30,000. Equipment purchases or physical improvements are eligible for 25 percent of the total project cost up to a maximum grant award of $70,000 with a completed business plan or food safety plan. A business or food safety plan must outline what equipment and improvements are necessary to fulfill the plan. The grants will be distributed in two rounds. Round one applications must be received by the MDA no later than 4 p.m. on Dec. 31. Round two applications must be received no later than 4 p.m. on March 1. Proposals may be delivered by mail, in person or by e-mail. If a proposal is e-mailed, the time and date it is received by the program administrator will be considered the received-by date. Applications are available at www.mda.state.mn.us/valueadded.aspx. For more information, contact David Weinand, MDA grants administrator, at 651-201-6646 or david.weinand@state.mn.us.

A Rarity Occurs When Council Dismisses Two Fire Call Bills

by Dan Ruud What normally doesn’t happen once a year occurred twice in 15 minutes last week. A number of people over the years have appealed the bill they received from the city after the Belle Plaine Fire Department responded to a call involving their property. Almost all those appeals have failed, but last Monday night (Nov. 19), two appeals were reviewed by the city council and both bills ($300 apiece) were dismissed. The first appellant was Tim Irvin of 836 South Chestnut Street. The fire department was called to his neighborhood on July 11 for a smell of gas. “My wife and neighbor were standing outside talking when they both smelled gas,� wrote Irvin in his appeal letter to council. “My neighbor told my wife to call the fire department. She didn’t want to, so she called Gopher One Call at 811. She told the woman (who answered) that she wanted Center Point Energy to come out and check for a gas leak. The woman told her it was protocol to call the fire department. “I am a retired fire fighter from Norwood Young America with 22 years of service and five years as an officer,� Irvin continued. “My wife is well aware of what it costs to run a fire department, and that is the reason she did not want to put this call in. “The first person on the scene could smell gas as well, but it seemed to dissipate as they were talking. When you have a gas leak from a construction accident, you usually evacuate a one-block square area for safety purposes. You know where the source is. The wind will carry the smell of gas for blocks. Since there was not a leak found and the source was never discovered, I don’t feel we should be charged for this. That smell could have come from anywhere. My wife was just trying to keep herself safe, along with the entire neighbor-

hood,� concluded the letter. Irvin was not in attendance at the meeting. According to Dawn Meyer, city finance director, the city billed the property owner for the call per the city’s policy and fee schedule. “The city does not reduce or dismiss fire bill charges unless there is a discrepancy regarding the type of billing,� added Meyer, who forwards the city’s bills per information received from officers of the fire department. Mayor Tim Lies said that many fire bill appeals are difficult to deal with in that the council must weigh what are often legitimate arguments by the appellant against city policy, which is “fire response is billed to the property/vehicle owner, and that the city of Belle Plaine charges individuals for fire response in an effort to defer costs incurred for the emergency, to the specific incident, this reduces the burden on tax dollars.� But in Irwin’s case, the council felt there was enough substance in his argument to dismiss the bill. The vote was 3-2 to do so, with Mayor Tim Lies and council members Paul Chard and Gary Trost voting to dismiss the bill. Accounting for the only no votes were Cary Coop and Scott Schneider. Mike Pingalore abstained. Minutes later, after reviewing its second fire bill appeal of the evening, the majority of the council again agreed with the appellant and the bill was dismissed. The appellant, Matthew Klumper, was not in attendance but his letter was reviewed by the council. “I live in Tyler, Minn., which is about 140 miles from your city. On May 8, 2012, I was driving through Belle Plaine on my way to St. Paul. Although I had stopped to get out and stretch several times during my drive, I felt myself getting tired and decided it would be safest to find a place to rest for a

short time rather than continue. I parked my car in the far corner of the mini-mall (BP Commons) parking lot on East Enterprise Drive and rested. After about 15 minutes, two police cars pulled up to where I was parked and one of the officers informed me that they had been notified that my car was on fire. I quickly got out of the car and inspected it, but saw no excessive smoke, flames or anything out of the ordinary that even remotely resembled a fire,� Klumper wrote. “Shortly after, someone from the fire department also arrived on scene and quickly got on the radio telling the rest of the fire department to stand down and not to send trucks. Despite my insistence that my car was fine, the firemen still checked it to make sure there was no fire. He confirmed there wasn’t a fire and never had been. After he took down my name for his records, I went on my way with the belief that everyone recognized this incident as a misunderstanding by the person who dialed 911 . . . “In this case, the responsibility lies with the person who called 911 without cause. The cost of the fire call should be the caller’s responsibility because nothing about this situation warranted such a call,� Klumper concluded. Nonetheless, Klumper eventually received a $300 bill from the city, prompting his appeal. Again, members of the council found themselves in the position of having to decide between city policy and the points brought forth in the appellant’s letter. In the end, history was made as two fire bills were dismissed in the same evening after the council voted 4-2 in Klumper’s favor. Casting the only no votes were Chard and Coop. City Administrator David Murphy said this week that the city does not intend to contact or bill the individual who made the call reporting that Klumper’s vehicle was on fire.

November 28 is a bit special this year. The full moon tonight, also known as the “Beaver Moonâ€?, will have a penumbral eclipse. I ran into this in my weekend reading. When I saw the word “penumbralâ€? used to describe the eclipse, I realized that there might be more to eclipses than I had heard of before. I had heard of partial and total eclipses. Obviously, some more reading was needed to understand this a bit better. After a bit of reading and searching, I learned that the partial and total eclipses that I know of are caused when the moon travels partly or totally through the umbra. The umbra is the shadow where the earth completely blocks the sun. The penumbra is a special “Vâ€? shaped ring where only part of the sunlight passes the earth with the rest blocked by the earth. It is reasonably rare to have the moon pass fully through the penumbra. We should expect to see a dimmer moon and most likely a different copper tinted color. Different parts of the world will see this event differently. We may be too far east here in Minnesota. Switching over the internet, I found this site to help out interested readers: http://www. timeanddate.com/eclipse/lunareclipse-november-2012.html with a more specific URL for our area: http://www.timeanddate. com/eclipse/in/usa/minneapolis. It would be fun to hear reports and see photos from the amateur sky-watchers among our readers. If you would like to learn more, we have many resources for you to use as you do some research.

Thirty Years Ago This Week

Raffling Dudley Belle Plaine Future Farmers of America member Brad Latzke was the top ticket seller (132 sold) during the calf raffle held in November of 1982. Latzke is pictured with Dudley, the calf that was raffled at Prairie Farm Supply in Belle Plaine. Dudley, which weighed 280 pounds and was 3 months old, was won by David Savage, son of Mr. and Mrs. Marlin Savage of Belle Plaine. Belle Plaine school officials declared war on the problem of teenage drinking, driving and alcoholism and were using a system of education and awareness to help solve what become an increasing concern for many area school districts. Public concern about drinking came to the fore in Minnesota in 1982 as legislators passed one of the toughest drunk driving laws in the nation. Meanwhile, the local driver education program was spending about one-third of its training time on the issue of drunk driving, according to an article written by instructor Chuck Perkins in the school’s most recent newsletter. Steffen’s Hardware and the Vets Club downtown were burglarized, with both entries made through alley doors. A total of $505 in cash was stolen from Steffen’s, but no merchandise was believed to have been taken. A couple of days later, just two doors down at the Vets Club, a rock was used to break the rear-door window. According to Maynhardt Bahrke of the Vets Club, between $70 to $75 in cash was taken as well as gum and cigarettes. Many Belle Plaine stores would start their Christmas holiday hours on Monday, Dec. 6, staying open until 9 p.m. each weekday until Dec. 23. Santa would begin regular visits to his downtown house on Dec. 10. A total of $1,000 in shopping certificates would be given away to those who did their Christmas shopping in Belle Plaine in 1982. The Scott County Fair Board held its annual election and Roger Stier was reelected president. Also re-elected were Oliver Rucks (vice president), Bill Chard (treasurer) and Maynard

Harms (secretary). The BPHS boys’ cagers opened the 1982-83 season with a pair of wins, defeating Waterville 56-40 and Jordan 60-53. Against Waterville, Kevin Wolpern scored 16 points and grabbed 13 rebounds. Jeff Fogarty added 12 points, while Brent Meyer contributed 11 points and 12 rebounds. The key performer in the win against Jordan was Eric Johnson as he hit 11 of 15 field goals and was 4 of 5 from the free throw stripe on his way to 26 points, 15 of those coming in the second quarter. The Tiger girls’ basketball team won its second and third games of the season, crushing Jordan 44-17 and St. Peter 60-30. Sandi Schmidt led the charge against Jordan with 15 points and 15 rebounds. Mary Leonard chipped in 11 points and Laurie Wolpern had 13 rebounds. Schmidt also led the team against St. Peter with 17 points and 15 rebounds. Melanie Martin added 12 points and Leonard 10. The BPHS wrestling team opened the season by topping Mound-Westonka 31-28. The Tiger matmen were powered by three pins courtesy of Brian Clymer (98), Tim Siegle (105) and Bob Fogarty (155). Also recording wins for Belle Plaine were Ed Fogarty (126), Carl Hennen (145) and Joe Dvorak (167).

Belle Plaine had taken on a holiday appearance with its light standards decorated with trees and lights, and its main street intersection criss-crossed with colored lights and evergreen boughs with a large

bell in the center. The nativity scene, which had attracted wide interest the previous year, was set up in a new location at the east end of Main Street. Therese McRaith, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J.G. McRaith, became the bride of Clayton Panek, son of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas F. Panek of New Prague. The December term of district court opened at Shakopee with one of the longest calenders in the history of the county. There were seven criminal actions listed and 90 civil actions. Michael O’Brien, native of Belle Plaine, died unexpectedly of a heart attack at his home in Webster, Mont., at the age of 51. He was the son of the late Mr. and Mrs. William O’Brien. Many who planned a Thanksgiving dinner had missing guests due to the winter’s first storm. The snow measured 6 to 8 inches with high winds. Belle Plaine was the proud possessor of a Boy Scouts troop. Our local troop No. 324 received its first official charter at a special investment ceremony. August Bloedel, who was Norwood’s blacksmith for more than 40 years, died at age 84. He started his blacksmithing career at Blakeley, where he remained until 1897 when he moved to Norwood. Belle Plaine’s independent basketball team lost its opener to Lakeville 50-39. It was decided at a meeting of the state baseball association that New Ulm was to be the site of the 1953 state baseball tournament.

90 Years Ago (1922)

The advent of December brought the first zero-reading night. Following a day of rain, streets and roads were left very rough. After making their home at Gary, Ind., for two years, Mr. and Mrs. Fran Blau moved back to Belle Plaine. Mr. and Mrs. Michael Nester took up their residence in Belle Plaine. Their son, Leo, continued on the farm in Carver County. A group of 50 arrived at the home of Mr. and Mrs. M.S. Corrigan near Assumption to surprise the couple on their anniversary date. Gould Irwin, 60, died at his home in Dorset. A son of Mr. and Mrs. R.A. Irwin, he and his wife, nee Kate Costello, moved to Hubbard County and were one of the first to pioneer the summer recreation resort business in that area. A very fine musical revue, given at the local theater on Thanksgiving Day, was sponsored by Gertrude Neubeiser, in which her sisters participated. At St. John’s Church in Sibley County took place the marriage of Miss Margaret Fahey, daughter of Mrs. P.E. Fahey, to John W. Shaughnessy. Miss Nellie

Nevin and Steven Shaughnessy were the attendants. One of the through passenger trains was derailed near Blakeley without injury to anyone aboard, but several hundred ties were damaged and many had to be replaced. Train service was halted for a time. Dennis Sherlock, native of Faxon Township, died at his home in Wahalla, N.D., and burial took place there. At the Catholic church in St. Peter took place the marriage of Miss Eva Hughes, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Percy Hughes, to Ray J. Molitor of Henderson. The Hughes family had been living on a farm north of Belle Plaine for several years before moving to St. Peter. After spending several months with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Jerome Greenbush in Jessenland, Mrs. Thomas Egan returned to her home at Milk River, Alberta, Canada. C.A. Mason was transferred from Jordan to station agent at Blakeley to begin his long career there. Mr. and Mrs. Dennis Ronayne retired from the farm at St. Thomas and moved to Le Sueur, their son Connie and wife taking over operation of the farm. Mrs. Michael Ryan, nee Kate Hodnett, formerly of St. Thomas, died at Le Sueur. The famous $20,000 “Hog Case” ended with a verdict for the defendant. Pinske of Arlington had bought for $20,000 a Duroc Jersey board from the Dammanns of Glencoe, and six months after the purchase, the boar died. Pinske sued on the grounds that the hog was not healthy at the time of sale. Le Sueur was to get a new river bridge. The project was included in that month’s call for bids by the state highway department. Burglars made a haul of $25,000 when they broke into the bank at Lonsdale.

120 Years Ago (1892)

Thomas Milton acquired a site between the depot and the Peavey elevator on which he was to begin construction of a creamery building. Belle Plaine was always considered a great farmer’s trading center. A count was taken that Saturday afternoon on a number of teams from the county, and 227 were counted. It was figured that a third more had been in town and gone home before the count was taken. The borough council had brought an action against a Sibley County man who had pledged $25.00 for the river bridge and then refused to pay it. The borough won the suit. The Australian ballot was used that fall for the first time. It confused many. In Scott County, 700 of those ballots were thrown out for incorrect markings; in Carver County nearly a thousand were tossed out.

BELLE PLAINE HERALD, BELLE PLAINE, MINNESOTA

Letters to the Editor Dear Editor, Once again, the Belle Plaine Food Shelf has benefitted from the generosity of the Belle Plaine Community. We have had High School students bring us several truck loads of food that they collected for us. Recently we had a successful Annual Fundraiser with many people attending and giving of their time and talents. Last week 23 baskets of food were put together for families in need, celebrating Thanksgiving. We will do that again for Christmas. The Belle Plaine Food Shelf opened its doors in July 2011. We are currently serving 381 families in the Belle Plaine Area. I am so proud of our community and the support that it gives those in need. Our activities could not be done without all of you. Have a wonderful holiday season! Betsy Ollhoff President

Dear Editor, On November 6 we did a good thing. We have celebrated, taken a well deserved rest. Now it’s time to get back to work. We cannot afford to fall asleep like we did in 2010, when the tea party came to town. We need to stay engaged now to keep moving forward. On Nov. 7 I wrote John Kline congratulating him and reminding him that “the people” had spoken. 60% of whom, in response to exit polls, including 42% of republicans, said that we should raise taxes on the top 2%. I.e. repeal the Bush tax cuts. They also voted against the privatization of Medicare, Medicaid, social security, and public schools. We “the people” need to hold John Kline accountable for representing US now, before we go off the cliff. This is our responsibility. Government “of the people, by the people, for the people” demands that we stay engaged. And since we can’t all go to Washington we have John Kline there to represent US. We need to communicate with him, now that he represents US. If he wants to keep his job he needs to actually represent US, not just 2% of us, not just the special interests that funded his campaign, but the majority of the American people who just won this election. Tell him to repeal bush tax-cuts, pass the Buffet rule, and maintain entitlements, and pass the President’s American Jobs Act. Lest we repeat the mistakes of the past (that handed our legislature to the tea party) we must be awake and empowered NOW. I assure you that the right wing extremists are fully awake with their hair on fire! Let’s keep the activism, and the energy (sans flames) going, and keep moving forward. If we truly want to be a democratic republic which is representative of ”the people” voting is only the first ( and arguably the most important ) step. It is good we had such a fantastic turn- out, and won so much. But if we just take our prize home and throw it in the corner, it will surely go to waste! We must use this opportunity to make changes happen. Please write John Kline and tell him to serve the will of the people, before Christmas: Washington, D.C. Office 2439 Rayburn HOB. Washington D.C. 20515….. (202) 225-227

Kline.house.Gov Remind him that his vote against raising minimum wage cost us a great stimulus.   Peace, Jon Frasz, Northfield

Dear Editor, Wed. Nov. 21 was a scheduled pick up day for the Epilepsy Foundation and I thought about how I can give back to those who are less fortunate than me. So I diligently went through my closets and put together three boxes of items for donation. The card instructed us to have the items to the curb by 7:30 a.m. so I placed my items at the curb on Tues. evening. As I was leaving for work on Wed. morning, low and behold someone had taken one of the three boxes. Let’s just say I was very upset that someone had the guts to do that. Being a Christian woman, I took a deep breath and said a prayer that whoever decided to take the box marked Epilepsy Foundation, really needed the items as much as the other people I intended to help but I was thankful that they left behind the other two boxes. So, I made a new sign and set out for work. Thanksgiving was the next day, so I pray that the person or persons who have these items really appreciates them and enjoys them because they were put out there for others in need and I trust that God put them into the right hands. May God bless you today and always. Kelly Zurn Belle Plaine

Dear Editor, While the results of the 2012 election mean that I will no longer serve in the majority, I remain passionate about ensuring our conservative voice is heard in St. Paul. I am also confident that we will continue to work for the bi-partisan common sense solutions that are 90% of our work at the Capitol. In the last two years we have seen a significant improvement in the state’s fiscal position. When I first ran for office in 2010 we were facing a $6 billion budget shortfall. We will now hand off a $1.3 billion surplus to the DFL majorities and to the governor. The surplus coupled with a projected 6% increase in revenues ($2 billion) should be enough to pay off the school shift and fund priorities without raising taxes on Minnesotans. Governor Dayton has indicated however that the election was a mandate for his ideas of larger government and higher taxes. He has also stated that he does not intend to ‘squander’ that mandate. I disagree with that assessment, but the stark reality is that the governor and the DFL majorities have full control over the legislative agenda of the next two years. I intend to lead the fight to ensure that more moderate voices prevail. As always I enjoy hearing from constituents throughout the district and would like to hear your ideas for making Minnesota a better place to work, live, and play. It is a privilege to serve as your State Representative. Kelby Woodard State Representative Elect, District 20A

Scott County is joining Dakota County in pulling out of the group charged with recommending ways to clean up the Minnesota River. The county board decided informally at its 2013 organizational workshop Nov. 13 to leave the Minnesota River Basin Board. It will formally approve Scott County’s departure at the 2013 organizational meeting, traditionally held during the first board meeting of 2013. Commissioner Joe Wagner of Sand Creek Township, Belle Plaine’s representative on the county board, believes the river basin board is an ineffective group that doesn’t have legislative authority or funding to enact significant regulations that will result in a cleaner Minnesota River. He cited the concerns former Commissioner Jerry Hennen of Shakopee raised three-plus years ago. “Jerry said it all the time. All they do is talk about ways to clean up the river. Nothing actually gets done. If the legislature wants the river cleaned up, they should pass laws to get it done,� Wagner said. He was the board’s representative to the river basin board but did not attend, citing the board’s inability to enact anything. “In eight years, nobody’s so much as picked up a pop can.� Wagner said a runoff from cities and chemicals from agriculture through small tributaries have long plagued the 335-mile

river’s cleanliness. The river flows from the South DakotaMinnesota border southeast to Mankato and then turns northeast toward Belle Plaine and the Twin Cities, meandering its way through 15,000 square miles, some of it being the richest agricultural lands in the state. There are 37 counties in the river basin, 23 of which are represented on the board. Using a formula that includes population and the area along the river, membership dues range from $625 a year to the $2,500 Scott County pays. The board’s efforts are also funded in part by a $42,000 grant from the state board of soil & water resources. Among the most common challenges the river faces are excess levels of nitrates and phosphorus chemicals essential for plants and animals. But in the river, they are frequently found in levels that can cause harmful effects. Tests indicate high levels of the agricultural chemicals accetochlor, atrazine and metolachlor are routinely found in the river, according to the river basin board’s Web site. They have been in samples collected the past three years at Judson, in the Blue Earth and Le Sueur rivers (tributaries to the Minnesota River). The river also suffers from sediments clouding the water and increasing turbidity, which obstructs growth of aquatic

plants. “I’d be supportive of membership in the river basin board if it could actually accomplish something other then have a bunch of people sit around and talk about it,� Wagner said.

On the Positive Side

On the positive side of the coin, the state recently announced water tests the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency took between Shakopee and St. Paul taken during the summer show water quality and oxygen levels have improved to the point the river can now support fish, mussels, plants and other aquatic life. Tests show long-term efforts to reduce the nutrient phosphorus from agricultural and urban runoff, which suppresses oxygen in water, were a good investment. Efforts to reduce phosphorus levels entering the river since 2004 have cut the nutrient’s level in half, according to PCA test results. The test results gave PCA Commissioner John Linc Stein reason to believe that longterm, dedicated efforts to repair the river from the impacts of agricultural and urban runoff are worthwhile. The PCA says if further testing shows the oxygen levels persist even at lower flows, then the last 20 miles of the river will no longer be considered “impaired’’ for low oxygen, a pollution designation it has been saddled with since 1992.

(continued from page 1)

Representatives of the station surprised the family at their home late Tuesday afternoon, weeks after family friend Melissa Mellgren nominated them to be a Christmas wish recipient (see letter below). Andrea and Brian’s 4-year-old son, Austin, was diagnosed with leukemia earlier this year, which has placed considerable strain on the family, both mentally and financially. Mellgran, felt the family was deserving of a surprise visit from the KDWB Christmas Wisha-Thon crew. The station would not divulge to the Herald on Tuesday what the Gerres/Overline family’s gift would be until after the surprise visit to their home. By that time, the Herald had already went to press. Every year, KDWB finds local families, individuals and organizations in need of help during the holiday season. For nearly 20 years, the station, through its Christmas Wish-a-Thon fund-raiser, has provided clothing, food, gasoline, car repairs, appliances and more to people in and around the Twin Cities area. These are people “who, through no fault of their own, but because of a death, job loss, injury, illness or other unforeseen matter, have found themselves in need during the holiday season.�

Superintendent’s Update

By Dr. Kelly Smith

The Thanksgiving Holiday snuck up on me with the early date this year so I was not ready with this column prior to the holiday. At this time of year when we are thankful for family, good health and all that we have been blessed with, I also want to give thanks for all the key pieces of our Belle Plaine School system. I am thankful for a supportive community that has stood by our schools financially as we have worked hard to improve our facilities and the technology available within them. We have been supported by our community through the passage of our operating levy several years ago and that levy has been a critical piece to the financial stability that we have seen over the past five years. I am thankful for the wonderful students who enter our buildings every day to improve themselves academically and personally. We have great students here in Belle Plaine doing great things for themselves and for others. Our vision for the district is “Expecting Excellence from Everyone, Every Day!� Our students exhibit that passion for excellence in the classroom, on the athletic field or court, and through the arts. I am thankful for a great team of employees who are dedicated to increasing the academic capabilities of all of our students. Whether it is the building administrator, the classroom paraprofessional, or the classroom teacher, all have a common goal of academic excellence for our students. Our teachers, led by each of our building principals, have truly engaged in the difficult work of organizational change and improvement. Our work conversations have a focus today than they did not have five or ten years ago. The conversations concentrate on the work necessary to improve teacher competence and skills that will result in improved student academic performance. I am thankful for community members who are willing to run in an election to serve the community as a member of the Belle Plaine School Board. Being a board member can be a difficult duty at times and I am fortunate to have worked with outstanding board members who have been committed to high academic performance and fiscal responsibility throughout my years here in Belle Plaine. As we enter December, it is the season for various school concerts. On Monday, December 10th our 7-12 grade band program will perform in the north gym. One week later in the same location will be the 7-12 grade choir concert. On Thursday, December 20th, our 5th & 6th grade band students will present their concert at Oak Crest Elementary. A quick note of some date changes for meetings in December. The school board will be meeting on Monday, December 3rd and Monday, December 17th at 6 p.m. each night instead of our normal 2nd and 4th Monday’s of the month. On December 3rd, we will have a report from our school district auditor on the 2011-2012 fiscal year and will present our annual Truth in Taxation Hearing that evening as well. Our regular meeting will be held on the Monday, December 17th. Representative Woodard and our new Senator (at this time it appears to be Kevin Dahle pending a recount on Friday) have been invited to talk about the upcoming legislative 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 and Panthers!

Justin and Andrea have two young boys – Austin just turned 4 and Jaxson is 1 1/2. Their family of four lives in a southwest suburb of Minneapolis. Everything turned upside down for this family on Feb. 8, 2012. Austin had been sick on and off in January – he seemed to have the flu but it didn’t go away. He had been running a fever and he was tired, pale and complained that his legs hurt. Austin’s parents took him to see a doctor where they drew his blood and noticed his blood counts were very low. He was immediately sent to Children’s Hospital. On Feb. 8, 2012, Justin and Andrea found out their little boy had cancer – something every parent wishes they will never hear. Since being diagnosed with leukemia, Austin’s and his family’s lives have drastically changed. In the beginning his family was making daily trips to Children’s Hospital for blood transfusions and chemo treatments.

Dahle-Dudley Recount Friday Wolf Expected to Return as Scott County Board Chairman in 2013 The Scott County portion of the recount of the Senate District 20 race between Kevin Dahle, a DFLer from Northfield and Republican Mike Dudley of New Prague will be held Friday, Nov. 30, 8:30 a.m., at the Scott County Law Enforcement Center in Shakopee. Votes will be recounted in Rice County

today and Le Sueur County tomorrow. The latest unofficial count from the Minnesota Secretary of State has Dahle in the lead by 78 votes – 20,628 to 20,550. There are also 53 write-in votes cast in the election. Given the accuracy of electronic vote counting ma-

chines, Dahle previous stated he doesn’t expect the total to change much. Dudley’s wins in Scott and Le Sueur counties (cumulatively, 13,621 to 10,254) were not enough to overcome Dahle’s huge win (10,374 to 6,929) in Rice County. In Scott County, Senate District 20 includes Belle Plaine city and Belle Plaine Township, Blakeley, Cedar Lake and New Market townships as well as the City of Elko New Market and the New Prague precinct within Scott County.

The Scott County Board will have a familiar face as its leader in 2013. The board decided informally at its organizational workshop Nov. 13 that Commissioner Tom Wolf of Credit River Township will return for a third consecutive year as chairperson. Commissioner Joe Wagner of Sand Creek Township, Belle Plaine’s representative on the county board, will serve as vice chairperson. The county board will formally decide its chairperson and vice chairperson at its organizational meeting in January. Both Wolf and Wagner believe they have the support of the majority of the county board. “Tom has done a good job running meetings,” Wagner said. Wagner returning to the vice chairperson’s role, a job he held in 2011, means Commissioner Barbara Marschall of Prior Lake will apparently not make the move from 2012’s vice chairperson to chairperson and is a sign of an ongoing division between commissioners that surfaced last January. The county board stopped the rotation of commissioners from vice chairperson to chairperson in 2010. “Commissioners Hennen, Marschall and (Jon) Ulrich de-

cided we would stop the rotation back then,” Wagner said. “It turned out to be a good idea to name the chair by consensus, not just because it was someone’s turn.”

Next Year’s Salaries

The county board had planned Tuesday to OK a study that would help commissioners approve the salaries for themselves and the elected county sheriff and county attorney in 2013. Scott County commissioners are paid $47,500, plus one $50 per diem each day for attending board-approved committee meetings. To define the wage for elected officials, Scott County opted to rely on an analysis of salaries suburban metro counties (plus St. Louis and Olmsted coun-

ties) pay their elected officials . Those counties are being compared to Scott County because of their similarity in size, complexity and structure. Using the salaries of like-sized counties was part of the outcome of appeals Scott County Sheriff Kevin Studnicka and County Attorney Pat Ciliberto filed when the board declined to approve raises for 2011. At the annual organizational workshop, commissioners had decided to pay themselves, the county sheriff and county attorney the average of their market peers, hoping to make the salary-setting process more procedural and systematic. Yesterday (Nov. 13), the board could not agree to move forward with the study. The issue will be back for discussion in the next few weeks.

Cologne Fire Truck, Ballpark Lighting Moving Forward In Both Cases, Fund-raising Efforts Continue

Several months after the Cologne City Council heard updates on plans to upgrade the city’s historic fire truck and bring lights to Fritz Field, groups are making impressive efforts to raise their share of the funding. The requests to the council include the inherent expectation the city will assist with funding the improvement at the ballpark in 2015 as well as the renovation of the truck in time for the Cologne Fire Department’s 125th anniversary in 2014. Representing the Cologne Baseball Board at the Nov. 19 meeting, Craig Pexa and Darrin Good told the council lights would allow Fritz Field to host more games and attract more people to the city. The field was used 66 days during the summer and fall seasons by area school teams, the Cologne Hollanders town baseball club and a fall instructional league. The lights will cost about $150,000 – although “sweat equity� could reduce the cost to around $110,000, Good said. The baseball board has been working on fund-raisers for several summers. It hopes Now accepting applications for current & future 2 Bedroom Apartments at Belle Plaine Apartments. $488/ mo. Must income qualify.

to have about $40,000 raised toward the lights through fundraisers by the end of next summer and $50,000 to contribute by 2015. But Good and Pexa stressed they are not trying to pressure the city into helping with funding. “We want to partner with the city and not doing it ourselves,� Good said. While he can’t commit a future council, Mayor Bernie Shambour said the city’s participation in paying for the lights at Fritz Field could potentially be part a larger bond issue.

1924 Fire Truck Restoration

Firefighter John Hendel, representing the Cologne Fire Relief Association, told the council firefighters have raised about half the $40,000 they believe will be needed to fully restore the city’s first motorized fire truck – a 1924 LaFrance-Brockway – to its original condition and transport it in an enclosed trailer. The majority of the funds for the project have come through drive-in theater nights the past few summers. The 2013 drivein is already slated for Aug. 1617. The truck will leave for the restoration project after the holidays. They hope to have it back by the summer of 2014. Along with the work on the engine and other facets of the truck, the project will require additional time to find as many authentic

parts for the truck – a lantern, a hatchet, a nozzle and the like – as possible, Hendel said. “We’re looking to restore it to as close to its original condition as possible,� Hendel said. With unanimous votes, the council approved three requests from the association. Councilors formally granted the group’s request to restore the truck. They granted the truck as a historic piece of property and promised the city would never sell it and they granted the relief association’s request to manage the restoration project. The council did not take up the association’s request to promise funding toward the restoration effort. Hendel said the association is “committed to this project� and will continue to raise the money even if the city declines to allocate funding toward it. But overall, Shambour and the council lauded the baseball board and Cologne Fire Relief Association with the fund-raising efforts to date. The council encouraged representatives of the two groups to continue their efforts and keep the council in the loop, efforts that will help the council make a better decision when it comes time for a funding decision. In other action at the Nov. 19 meeting, the Cologne City Council: n Paid bills totaling $49,234.17. n OK’d Modern Design’s plans to purchase a building behind its existing facility on Paul Avenue South. n Heard a proposal from a representative from Springsted on a potential bond sale refinancing existing bonds. It is one of a multiple proposals from firms that work with local governments selling bonds. n Granted Hans Hagen Homes request for approval of the 13th addition of Village at Cologne. The addition includes four single-family lots on Silver Leaf Trail.

runner at Belle Plaine High School. He was named the team’s MVP during his senior year and broke the track record at the school for the one mile. He was a three-time track letter-winner and a two-time cross country letter-winner. He didn’t start fully competing for the SCSU cross country team until this fall. He ran under 30 minutes (29:46) for the first time this year at the University of Minnesota’s Roy Griak Invite on Sept. 29. A month later, at the Northern Sun conference meet, Mueller cut his time on the same course by almost one minute. He’ll also compete in distance events for the track and field team this winter and spring. “I wanted to keep my running career going so that’s why I went out for cross country and track,” Mueller said. “I’m doing pretty good for the most part this year. My times have been getting better in each race.” Mueller enjoys interacting with people as Blizzard. But there are some rules he can’t break. It’s almost like being a Shakespearean actor at times. “You can’t talk. That’s one of the hardest things to do,” he said. “When you’re trying to explain something and people ask you a question sometimes can be tough. It’s hard trying to explain something when they still aren’t getting it.” One Blizzard outfit is only used for hockey games and the other is stored at Halenbeck Hall. The students in Blizzard get breaks during games so they can drink water and cool off. For basketball doubleheaders, two different people put on the outfit. Being in the outfit for more than four hours would be a little torturous, after all. Mueller says most fans treat the mascot kindly. “People like having Blizzard

around,” Mueller said. “Some people come running up and yell ‘Blizzard’ and give you a big hug. That’s always cool. “The crowds I’ve worked have all been pretty good. When I’m doing big events with a big crowd, I’ll always have a friend that follows me around to help me out.” The design of the mascot was changed in 2006. Lewis said about six months of meetings went into the design. “We wanted to bring back more of our school spirit and pride when we redesigned it,” Lewis said. “Before that, people called it ‘The Husky Dog.’ Some folks thought that was Blizzard’s name. It gave us a different look and we went with that.” Mueller wants to keep being Blizzard until he graduates. “It’s fun. I hope I can do some basketball games in the future. If I wanted to do hockey, my skating would really have to improve,” Mueller joked. “I’m not much of a skater right now. I just can’t stop.” 2012-13 BPHS Girls’ Basketball Schedule Nov. 27 at WEM Nov. 29 at NRHEG Dec. 4 vs. Glencoe-SL Dec. 6 at Mound-Westonka Dec. 7 vs. LS-H Dec. 11 at Watertown-Mayer Dec. 13 at Sibley East Dec. 18 vs. Mayer Lutheran Dec. 20 vs. Hutchinson Dec. 28 -29 at NYA Tourney Jan. 4 at Jordan Jan. 10 at NYA Jan. 12 vs. St. Peter Jan. 15 vs. Tri-City United Jan. 17 vs. Bethlehem Acdy.

by Dr. Vicki Luehmann (Borowicz) CUSTOM FIT

To ensure that your eyeglasses will fit you like a custom suit, four basic frame measurements must be taken into account. The first, eye size, refers to the horizontal width of one of the frame’s lenses. The next, bridge size, measures the distance between the two lenses at their closest point. Temple size is measured from one end of the temple to the other (including the bend). And, finally, there is vertical size, which is a measurement of the lens’ vertical height. This measurement is particularly important when ordering multifocal lenses. Unless new eyeglass frames are selected in accordance with these measurements, they will be uncomfortable and ineffective. Ask anyone whose frames slip down his or her nose. Eyeglass frames must fit properly on the bridge of your nose and stay in place whether you are looking up, down or sideways. We carry the latest designer frames and a variety of temple styles and lengths to suite all lifestyles. Most importantly, we ensure that the height and width of the prescription lens provides the wearer with optimal vision. Please call us at 952-492-2350 to schedule an eye health examination, or visit us at 223 E. First Street, Suite 101 to browse through our display of frames. P.S. Lifestyle factors must be carefully taken into consideration when selecting eyeglass frames.

Carver County Buys Key DNR Releases Preliminary Stretch of Waconia Lakeshore Deer, Wolf Harvest Numbers

The Carver County Board on Tuesday approved a purchase agreement for the last remaining parcel within the Lake Waconia Regional Park boundary. The 19.29 acre parcel preserves 890 feet of shoreline for conservation and public use. The negotiated purchase price of $3,250,000 was based upon a property appraisal. It is anticipated that Carver County will receive full reimbursement for the acquisition. Funds to acquire the property will come from two sources of the Metropolitan Council – CIP funds and Acquisition Opportunity Funds. “Preserving this property will allow current residents and future generations the opportunity to enjoy one of the county’s greatest assets – Lake Waconia,” said Carver County Board Chair James Ische. “The acquisition of the parcel is key to resolving a long-awaited closure of Old Beach Lane to vehicle traffic and the planned continuation of a trail connection from downtown Waconia and along lakeshore to the park.” A significant feature about the parcel is that it contains a 40foot tall hillside. From the top of the hill, one has a panoramic view of the lake, Coney Island, with views to the south to undeveloped property and a view to the west of the city. This topography feature effectively blocks noise that occurs outside of the park setting. Conversely, nearby residents are sheltered from active use areas of the park and large events that occur inside the park. A public boat access is planned in partnership with the Depart-

ment of Natural Resources. For financial and efficiency purposes, it is proposed that land needed for the boat access be purchased by the DNR and it would provide funding for development. Day-to-day park maintenance of the boat access would be performed by the county and there would be no fee to access. This public water access will enhance activities at the park as well has help to alleviate parking congestion and a hazardous parking condition along County Road 92 near the DNR access. Lake Waconia Regional Park amenities include a beach, parking area, playground, picnic area, sledding hill and supports an annual visitation of approximately 102,000 visits. Additionally, the park has hosted state and regionally significant events, including the Governor’s Fishing Opener, Waconia Triathlon, the Vintage Snowmobile Classic, the National Windsurfing Regatta and is a favorite location to watch the annual 4th of July fireworks display. Regional significance is further demonstrated with 42 percent of the park’s visitors originating from outside of the county, thus demonstrating the need for state and regional funding. If Carver County does not use the funding, other regional park agencies could use the funds to acquire regional parks and trails for their county or city. Carver County residents pay a variety of taxes, including sales tax, which support these types of regional park projects and this land acquisition applies those taxes locally.

Minnesota hunters harvested 151,400 deer so far during the 2012 early firearm season, according to preliminary numbers announced Friday by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR). Overall, antlered buck harvest increased 9 percent and antlerless deer harvest decreased 21 percent compared to 2011. In total, firearm harvest was off 7 percent, which was expected given the conservative allocation of antlerless deer permits. “The increase in buck harvest and decrease in antlerless deer harvest is a reflection of slightly higher deer populations statewide, yet a more conservative harvest philosophy this year,” said Lou Cornicelli, DNR wildlife research manager. “What drives total harvest is how we manage antlerless deer.” This year, DNR increased the number of lottery areas where hunters could only take an antlerless deer by permit. Opening weekend weather, which drives much of the statewide deer harvest, was nearly ideal with clear skies, cool temperatures, and a near total crop harvest. Ample hunting opportunities remain as the statewide muzzleloader season runs from Saturday, Nov. 24 through Sunday, Dec. 9. The archery season closes on Monday, Dec. 31. The deer harvest number is calculated using data provided by hunters when they register a deer. A final report, which includes more detailed harvest information, will be available on the DNR website at the end of January. Wolf Harvest Hunters registered 147 wolves during the early portion of Minnesota’s first wolf season that ended Nov. 18. 53 fewer than the statewide harvest target, according to the DNR.

The wolf harvest trend closely mirrored the deer harvest trend. “The harvest was highest at the beginning of the season then declined as fewer hunters returned afield,” said Dan Stark, DNR large carnivore specialist. “It’s been a smooth start to the state’s first regulated wolf season. Interest was strong. Harvest is well within expectations.” Wolf hunting in the east-central zone closed Nov. 5 with hunters registering eight wolves. The northeast zone closed Nov. 15, with hunters registering 61 wolves. Hunting in the northwest zone closed with the season on Nov. 18, with hunters registering 78 wolves. Hunters registered three more wolves in the northeast zone than the target of 58. In the east-central zone, hunters registered one fewer wolf than the target harvest of nine. The agency anticipated slight overages or underages in its management planning. Stark said targets were established as guidelines, not absolute quotas and that late-season targets will be adjusted based on the early season harvest. He said that actual zone harvest numbers may change slightly as exact harvest location data is verified during wolf inspection. Minnesota’s late hunting and trapping season began Saturday, Nov. 24. It will conclude Thursday, Jan. 31, provided late-season harvest targets in each of Minnesota’s three wolf zones are not met. Hunters and trappers are encouraged to monitor the DNR website www.dnr.state.mn.us/ hunting/wolf/index.html daily to ensure their season is open.

Girls’ Basketball Boys’ Hoops Home Opener Team Opens Next Tuesday Season Dec. 11

The Belle Plaine High School boys’ basketball team is getting a late start to the regular season as it will not play its first game until Dec. 11 at Waterville-Elysian-Morristown. The Tigers’ originally-scheduled season opener at Blue Earth Area on Dec. 4 has been pushed back to the end of the regular season (Feb. 28) due to the Bucs’ participation in the state Class 3A championship game last week. A preview of this year’s BPHS boys’ basketball team will appear in the Dec. 5 edition of the Herald.

Panthers Open Season Saturday

After wrestling their way to a second straight MSHSL State AA team runner-up finish and a 2012 Amateur Wrestling News national ranking of #24 to go along with an Intermat national ranking of #32 last year, the Scott West Panthers wrestling team will be looking to continue their tradition of success that has saw them make it to the MSHSL State Team Tournament over the last five seasons and 13 times in the program’s 22-year history. “You have to embrace your history and success; we certainly think that we do that here at Scott West,” insists Scott West Wrestling co-head coach Darren Ripley, who will again team up with co-head coach Jerold Stauffacher to help lead the Panthers into their 23rd wrestling season. “This team has the great opportunity and challenge to try to take Scott West to its sixth straight state team tournament.” Scott West will look to “Bring the Heat” (this year’s team motto) behind a solid nucleus of proven wrestlers led by tricaptains Luke Zilverberg, Jake Weierke and Zach Siegle. Zilverberg wrestled his way to a 34-9 record last year as a junior, however after placing fifth in the State as a sophomore at 112 pounds, he missed qualifying for the state individual tournament last season as he placed third in the Section 2AA Tournament at 126 pounds. “Obviously, that did not sit well with Luke and hopefully it has and will be a motivating factor for him entering this upcoming season,” states Ripley. “Luke certainly has been a key wrestler in the success of our team over the last three years and we are looking for him to have a big senior season.” The wrestling seasons may continue in the future for Zilverberg as he has recently committed to attending South Dakota State University and wrestling in the Division I Jackrabbit program. During last year’s wrestling season, many Scott West fans also had an opportunity to be-

come big Jake Weierke fans as the Panther wrestler broke through and wrestled his way to a 21-8 record, which included a 5-0 Minnesota River Conference record and All-MRC status. “We address him as Captain Weierke and that is what he will be for us this year,” insists Ripley. “Jake really came up big for us last year and we are looking for him to continue to add to that success again this year in his senior season.” It was an injury, in part, to now junior Zach Siegle that helped pave the way for Weierke’s emergence to Panthers prominence as he cut down a weight class to 113 to fill in for the highly talented Siegle, who was absent from the lineup for about a month after dislocating his elbow in a match at the Anoka Duals. Siegle would return just in time for team and individual section competition, where he would come up with a key team win in the state semifinals with a 5-2 decision over one of his long-standing rivals, Tristian Manderfeld. Siegle’s win helped propel the Panthers to a 31-21 win over Foley and back to the state team championship meet. As an individual, Siegle wrestled his way to a 359 record and a fourth place state finish at 113 pounds. “Zach showed a lot of toughness last year, especially late in the year,” comments Ripley. The Panthers had a pair of tough freshmen last year that will now be looking to being even tougher sophomores. Lightweight David Flynn wrestled his way to a 40-9 campaign as he qualified for the state individual tournament at 106 pounds after placing fourth at the Minnesota Christmas Tournament and sixth at the Rumble on the Red. “David had a really nice year for himself last year. Not many freshman put up 40 wins in the state,” suggest Ripley. Scott West will be looking for another big year from Flynn’s sophomore teammate Andrew Fogarty. Fogarty wrestled his

way to a 36-14 record last year as he really took the Minnesota wrestling world by storm late in the season by finishing third in the state individual tournament. Junior Derek Dahlke will become a regular mainstay in the Scott West lineup this year after wrestling successfully on a part-time basis over his freshman and sophomore campaigns. Dahlke had a 14-7 record last year, while turning in an inspirational performance in his last match of the year when he battled and fought for six minutes with now Simley threetime state champion Jake Short during the state team championship meet against Simley. Scott West will also be looking for freshman lightweight Ben Kelvington to help lead the way for the team. He went 7-2 in limited varsity action last year. If Scott West is going to continue its tradition of success, it will need to get big contributions from the remaining five of their 12 returning letter winners. Four of them are juniors this year and Jacob Backlund is the lone one to return a winning record as he went 6-5 a year ago. Shane Abraham, Ray Carter and Jake Schultz also return for the Panthers, while senior John Hiegel returns after going 6-6 last season. “Jacob and Shane put in some good off-season work so we are hoping it will provide positive results for them this year, while Jake Schultz had a good summer camp this year and is looking to bring some stability to the upper weights,” states coach Ripley. “John Hiegel has some skill sets to be successful, while Ray Carter finished the football season very strong this year as he was running and hitting hard.” The Panthers will begin the season rated #4 in Minnesota’s Class AA with David Flynn rated #7 at 113, Zach Siegle #6 at
