City Council Adopts Assessment Roll for 2012 Street Project by Dan Ruud Following a public hearing, during which no one from the audience spoke, the Belle Plaine City Council Monday night unanimously adopted the final assessment roll for the city’s 2012 street and utility improvement project. “The 2012 street improvement project is nearing completion and the city engineer feels confident that the costs can be accurately assessed,” reported City Administrator David Murphy, adding that the final costs came in under the bid amount. The area to be assessed for this year’s project includes: – North Elm Street between Church Street and Spring Street. – Court Street from Meridian Street to Walnut Street. – Chestnut Street north of Court Street. – Ravine repair at the end of Chestnut Street. The total amount to be assessed for this year’s project came in at $366,121.66, which benefitting property owners will pay back in annual installments over a period of seven years at an interest rate of 3.5 percent per year. The city is absorbing $1,125,118.41 (75 percent) of the cost of this year’s project, which included a considerable amount of work on streets that

fronts Court Square Park and other city properties. What had been an almost full council chambers had already cleared out before the council opened the street improvement assessment public hearing. That’s because the vast majority of those who were in attendance earlier were either local Girl Scouts (and parents), or those who were involved in helping save the life of Belle Plaine technology director and seventh-grade football coach Ken Wick when he suffered a cardiac malfunction on the football field Sept. 11. Belle Plaine Girl Scout Troop 21109 received a certificate of merit for their efforts on Saturday raking leaves from parks and curb-sides of city streets to help reduce the amount of leaves that enter the city’s sewer systems this time of year. Wick’s lifesavers, which included over a dozen Belle Plaine school district staff, firefighters, ambulance and law enforcement personnel, were there to receive certificates of merit for their efforts as well. Mayor Tim Lies made the presentations on behalf of the city. In other business Monday night, the council authorized staff to enter into an agreement with Selly Excavating to ad-

Scenic Byway Races Feature Two Repeat Winners; Runner Turnout Down

Angie Johnson and Anne Miller found the inaugural Harvest Hunt Coin Friday at the Blaha Bird Sanctuary at the corner of North Willow and West Court streets.

Duo Took Successful Search for Harvest Coin to the Birds

Angie Johnson and Anne Miller knew exactly where they were headed once reading the fourth clue in the inaugural Harvest Coin Hunt Friday afternoon. After three clues had stumped the pair and dozens of others searching for the Harvest Coin, the final clue left no doubt where it was hidden. Johnson and Miller hit pay dirt, finding the Harvest Coin in the Blaha Bird Sanctuary at approximately 4:25 p.m. Friday, thwarting the efforts of others who had flocked to the corner of Court and Willow streets with the hopes of finding the medallion and claiming $100 in Belle Plaine Bucks. They found the coin just north of the intersection on the east-

ern edge of the heavily wooded ravine shelter. It was in a New Balance running shoe just under a log and next to a large piece of milkweed. The hunt was a preamble to the Second Annual Scenic Byway Half-Marathon and 5K run Saturday. The final clue was filled with references to the intersection, birds and trees. It made the search easy for indomitable medallion hunters. The pair found the coin with two other groups of hunters nearby. “Everybody figured it out,” Miller said. “But hey, you snooze, you lose.” Like many people, Miller and Johnson had searched a variety of places around town – Veterans Park, school grounds, along nearby curbs and public ball fields. The pair had been out

three times a week in each of the three weeks of the search. They had previously visited the bird sanctuary looked around an area within a few feet of where it was hidden but couldn’t close the deal. “Bill (Kurschke) did a good job of writing the clues,” Miller said. While Miller is a renowned and indomitable contestant in the St. Patrick’s and Bar-B-Que Days medallion hunts, she and Johnson have no plans to take the next hunt off. Miller, her daughter and husband found the Barbecue Days medallion amidst a tree north of the Episcopal Church last summer. The pair served notice to other coin hunters in town. “We’re going to turn it up a notch for St. Patrick’s Day,” Johnson said.

tions at Saturday’s second annual Minnesota River Valley Scenic Byway Half-Marathon and 5K races in Belle Plaine. A total of 387 runners (210 in the 5K and 177 in the halfmarathon) completed the races. Last year, 468 runners (243 in the half-marathon and 225 in the 5K) completed the event’s inaugural races. Carrie Traxler of the Belle Plaine Chamber of Commerce said there were 462 registered for the races this year, but for one reason or another, decided not to compete or didn’t finish the race. Females significantly outnumbered males in both races this year – 101 to 76 in the halfmarathon and 135 to 75 in the 5K. “While race registrations are down slightly from last year, we are pleased with the turnout considering the talk of severe weather the days leading up to the races,” Traxler said. “Between the weather and

construction on Court Street, Scott County Road 6 and Sibley County Road 6, there were many obstacles outside of our control that created additional stress for planning this year’s race. The chamber was able to work with city and county officials to keep the half-marathon route on the Scenic Byway loop and we were very grateful that the rain held off the day of the race.” Traxler added that besides Minnesota, there were runners from Illinois, North Dakota, Missouri, Wisconsin, Maryland, South Carolina, Oregon and Utah taking part in either the half-marathon or 5K. “Runners told us last year that the half-marathon course is challenging and this year we touted that to the running community,” Traxler said. According to Rosemary Harnley of Red Wing, who placed first both years in the female age 60-69 category, the Scenic Byway Half-Marathon course is the “toughest half in Minnesota.” “Because the new 5K route didn’t overlap with the half-

marathon route this year, we also needed more than twice as many volunteers, “ Traxler continued. “We wouldn’t have been able to put on a successful event without all the community members that donated their time.” Traxler said that approximately 75 volunteers assisted in road guarding, chip cutting, concessions and cleanup, etc. There were two repeat winners this year, both coming in the men’s races. Eric Thies, 23, of Apple Valley (formerly of Arlington), won the half-marathon decisively again this year with a time of 1:18:51. His time last year, when the temperature was about 10 degrees warmer, was 1:18.39. Thies, a 2007 graduate of Sibley East High School and 2010 graduate of the University of Nebraska, works as a credit analyst for a Twin Cities area bank. He was a standout longdistance runner in high school and college, the latter of which he earned multiple first-team

By ‘Consensus,’ Scott County Passes on Indian Land Appeal

Birth Announcement Kris and Amy (Weldon) Mortenson of Burnsville are proud to announce the birth of their daughter, Gabriella Grace Mortenson. Gabriella arrived at 9:42 p.m. on Saturday, August 4, 2012 at Fairview Ridges Hospital in Burnsville. She weighed 8 pounds, 4 ounces and was 21 inches long. Grandparents are Brendan and Nancy Weldon of Belle Plaine and Norm and Cheryl Mortenson of Canby, MN. Great-grandparents are Helen Hennen of Belle Plaine and Selma Malecek of Canby.

by John Mueller Scott County commissioners decided Tuesday they won’t fight a Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) decision to place three parcels of land the Shakopee Mdewakanton Dakota Community owns into trust status. After a 45-minute closed-door meeting with legal counsel Tuesday morning, commissioners “reached consensus” they would not appeal the decision on the three parcels covering 153 acres in Shakopee and Prior Lake, said Commissioner Joe Wagner of Sand Creek Township, Belle Plaine’s representative on the county board. “That’s what we agreed to say. It was a general consensus,” Wagner said. He wouldn’t say if any of the commissioners supported appealing the BIA decision in federal court. Commissioners representing Shakopee and Prior Lake have previously supported opposition to the placing of land in their cities into trust status. The unwillingness to appeal is based on the county’s adminis-

trator’s estimate legal fees of up to $1 million over a prolonged court fight with no guarantee of winning. The BIA approved the tribe’s application in August. “It’d be an uphill fight. As much as I hate to lose the land from the tax rolls, there’s a chance we could spend up to $1 million and still lose,” Wagner said. “I’m sorry, but that’s not a good use of taxpayer dollars. If we’re going to spend that kind of money, I want much better odds.” The three parcels are contiguous to land the tribe already owns. The land is currently used for agricultural purposes and taxed accordingly. The three parcels are expected to generate almost $21,000 in property taxes for 2012. Historically, the tribe does not develop its land until it is in trust status. The county had previously opposed the tribe application to place the land into trust. Trust status means the federal government holds ownership of the land, Wagner said. The land is both removed from the local property tax rolls and local zoning controls.

These and dozens of other members and parents of Belle Plaine Girl Scouts were busy raking and bagging leaves on Saturday in an effort to reduce the amount of leaves that reach the Minnesota River and other bodies of water by way of the city’s sewer system. The total count was 316 bags of leaves, which is 6,320 pounds of leaves. This removes 63 pounds of phosphorous from the waterways. The local event was part of Girl Scouting’s “Centennial Day of Service,” during which members from throughout the River Valley Girl Scouts organization and elsewhere did their share to help improve water quality in our lakes and rivers. The troop was recognized for its efforts in receiving a certificate of merit from the Belle Plaine City Council Monday night.

Over the Years, Boessling’s Gardens Have Produced Veggies, Herbs and Satisfaction

Paying Off a Debt Belle Plaine Junior-Senior High School Principal David Kreft and Activities Director-Junior High Dean Mindy Sparby donned Belle Plaine Tiger mascot suits and delivered treats to elementary school teachers last week. The pair were repaying a debt after more elementary school parents reportedly took test drives at Max Saxe Chevrolet-Buick during a recent fund-raiser.

Shelby Promoting Healthy Living at Carver County Senior Expo The Carver County Senior Expo will feature former TV newsman Don Shelby discussing the importance of healthy living Thursday, Oct. 18 (8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.), at Waconia Senior High School. The event’s theme is “The Season Never Ends.” The expo will promote the value of Carver County health care providers, services for elderly adults

and the importance of planning for retirement. Shelby’s presentation begins after breakfast treats. Other events include a vendor fair, health fair, health screening, hot chicken dinner, music with lunch, door prizes and more. The cost to attend is $15 per person. For more information and registration, contact Waconia Community Education at (952) 442-0610.

Scott County Mobile Health Clinic at Fairgrounds Oct. 18 Are you or someone you know without health insurance and need to see a doctor? Scott County Public Health identified a need for services that are more easily accessible to individuals and families who are uninsured, underinsured, and underserved. Through a partnership with the Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community, Scott County Public Health provides adult and child health screening, preventative health care, health information and assistance with connecting to ongoing health care and other local resources. The services are provided with

the partnership of the Mobile Unit, owned by the Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community. Services are brought directly to those in need by having the clinic go to various locations within Scott County. The mission of this Mobile Health Clinic partnership is to provide access to healthcare, health education, and outreach for services to residents of Scott County of all ages, cultures, ethnic groups, and spoken languages. The next mobile clinic is Thursday, Oct. 18 at the Scott County Fairgrounds, 7151 190th St SW, Suite 100, Jordan.

They look back on a good summer for growing pretty flowers and tasty vegetables and herbs, one filled with challenges of extreme heat and long stretches between rainfall. For residents of Boessling Apartments, the community garden is a perk that pays off in many ways. For several years, a handful of residents at Boessling Apartments on The Lutheran Home campus have spent the latespring and summer tending to their gardens, cultivating young plants, making sure the plots have enough moisture, fertilizer and nutrients. A few years back, residents at Faith Apartments began working a small plot for gardening. The Boessling residents credit the late-Fritz Westlund with getting the garden started several years ago. Since he passed away in 2005, a handful of residents in their 70s and 80s – Barbara Kiewel, Lee LaTour, Eleanora Sellnow, Dolores Buesgens and Joe Hawkins – have continued working the various plots annually. Kiewel and Buesgens have worked the small gardens for about a decade. They have planted vegetables including sweet potatoes, cucumbers, zucchini, tomatoes, varieties of peppers and herbs like chives, parsley, rosemary, thyme, oregano and others for sharing with other residents. “We’ve put a lot of fertilizer out there over the years,” Kiewel said. They’ve also grown a wide assortment of flowers, from roses to marigolds and more. There are about a dozen plots at Boessling Apartments and the residents choose on their own what to plant. Kiewel has taken many of the flowers and vegetables she’s grown over the years to the county fair, winning various awards. Her flowering kale won a ribbon this year. “The $5 premium will help pay for next year’s plants,” she said. Others plant flowers or vegetables for the pure enjoyment and satisfaction of working the soil from planting until the harvest. “It’s really fun to growing beautiful flowers and have them sit on the dining room table,” she said. For the residents, gardening comes naturally. Most grew up on the farm in Minnesota. Kiewel grew up in South Dakota while Hawkins, a Nebraska

native, is the Boessling resident furthest from home. “Some of these people have been gardening for 70 or 80 years,” said Mary Albrecht, the service coordinator for Boessling Apartments. “This is part of their livelihood growing up, part of what they do very well.” In addition to the flowers and produce of the gardens shared with the various residents at Boessling Apartments, the gardens also present an opportunity for interaction between the community and apartment residents. Area residents have helped with weeding, tilling and watering. After a heavy rainfall and hot, sunny days last spring, a group of volunteers helped the residents loosen the packed soil. “You couldn’t even get a shovel in the ground,” Buesgens said. Boy Scouts built elevated boxed gardens to make the gardens more accessible to residents unable to spend time on their needs working at ground level. The gardens are on the west side of the building, with south-

A large spruce tree offers some shade for the more tender plantings. A bluebird house provides shelter for welcome songbirds. The birds sometimes help themselves to raspberries or the feed residents leave out for them. The group also lends a helping

hand, as each one is able, taking care of watering or weeding if someone is out of town for the weekend. The gardens have also helped build friendship through a common interest. “We help each other out,” Kiewel said. “It goes pretty well.”

Thirty Years Ago This Week

Letters to the Editor Dear Editor, I understand how difficult it is for people to evaluate the performance of judges and make an educated decision on whether to return them to the bench at election time. Because I spend a great deal of time in courtrooms, I have the opportunity to observe various judges perform the duties mandated by our constitution. Judge Kathryn Messerich deserves re-election. She is bright, articulate and fair. That is exactly what everyone appearing before the court deserves in our judicial system.  Very truly yours, JASPERS, MORIARTY AND WALBURG, P.A. Dennis Patrick Moriarty Attorney at Law

Enhanced Communications for the Deaf Marc Hagen, an eighth-grader at Belle Plaine junior high school in 1982, is pictured using his microcomputer. The machine helped Marc, who was deaf, to communicate with many other people around the country. That year Marc had the privilege of seeing his family’s suggestions become a reality when Northwestern Bell and American Telephone and Telegraph incorporated a change in the system that allowed for the deaf to use phone lines and a computer screen to talk. After a fairly quiet summer, things were heating up again concerning the two proposed hazardous waste sites located near Belle Plaine. The site located in Benton/Hancock townships, about seven miles north of Belle Plaine, had been the area of most activity as the farmers and landowners there protested and rejected a request by the Waste Management Board to allow electric resistivity testing. And the previous week, a state hearing examiner recommended that the fourmile square site, as well as the Waconia Township site, be certified by the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency’s Citizens Board as intrinsically suitable. Parents of Belle Plaine Elementary School students would be seeing new report cards that year. The new card was designed to show not only the achievement a child made in school work, but would also measure the amount of effort he or she put into school projects. Such as system was more equitable, according to school Principal Dave Dooley. The Belle Plaine Chamber of Commerce-sponsored Halloween events were set for that year with the dance and roller skating party scheduled for Oct. 31. The dance would take place in the junior high gym and the roller skating party would be held at Skateville in Burnsville for students in grades 7-8. Belle Plaine received its first snow of the season that Tuesday (Oct. 19), but ground temperatures were warm enough to melt the white stuff as fast as it came down. Larger and lasting amounts fell in areas just south of Belle Plaine, with some parts of Le Sueur County reporting 4 inches. Candidates night, a chance for the public to hear the views of local candidates for Belle Plaine offices, would be held Oct. 25 at Belle Plaine Elementary School. The event was sponsored by the Belle Plaine Rotary Club. The Belle Plaine High School football team lost to Mankato Loyola 19-6 to drop to 2-3 in the conference, 3-4 overall. A 16-yard touchdown pass from Jeff Fogarty of Dennis Lehman accounted for the Tigers’ only score. The Tiger tennis team made a fine showing at the Region 4A Tennis Tournament. The District 13 champs started by beating Brooklyn Center 5-0 in the first round and Le Sueur 4-1 in the second round. Belle Plaine then ran up against three-time defending state champion St. Paul Academy, losing 5-0. The Tigers finished the season with

a record of 9-8.

60 Years Ago (1952)

Belle Plaine again had a Community Halloween Party. It was sponsored by the P.T.A. with the cooperation of other local organizations and business firms. Our north-side turkey raisers disposed of half of their 12,850 turkey crop and expected to sell the remainder before mid-November. Mrs. Alice Swanson, Blakeley, suffered a stroke and died at St. Francis Hospital in Shakopee. She was 72 years old. Three fires during the week kept the Belle Plaine Fire Department busy. The largest blaze was high weeds near the borough’s gravel pit. The second was a burning truck on Main Street and the third was a chimney fire at the Emil Freter Jr. farm. None were serious. The USO drive in Belle Plaine was a success with a total of $286.85 collected. The magnitude of the dirt removal job on the Devine hill was worth observing. The top of the hill was completely removed, a portion going to fill the slough west of the Albert Trost buildings, but the greater part to fill the ravine near the Arnold Oldenburg buildings. Mrs. Mary Smith, mother of Edward F. Smith of Belle Plaine, died at her home in Jordan. She was 85 years old. The public school at New Prague was burglarized with $687.55 being taken from the safe in bills and small change. At the Church of St. Canice in Kilkenny took place the marriage of Miss Donna Byrne, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Leonard Byrne of Kilkenny, to John O’Brien, son of Mr. and Mrs. John O’Brien of Belle Plaine. An overpowering Montgomery grid team blasted Belle Plaine 26-13 in the Tigers’ homecoming game. The homecoming king and queen were George Herrmann and Shirley Shubert. The tax levy for the borough’s general fund was set at $16,000 for 1953. The marriage of Dorothy Langhoff, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Emil Langhoff of Henderson, to Raymond Tiegs, son of Mr. and Mrs. Albert Tiegs, took place at St. John’s Ev. Church.

90 Years Ago (1922)

District court for Scott County was in session. Very few cases, hardly any jury trials. The automobile injury factor had not

then become evident. Dorlie Whitlock departed for Riverside, Calif., to spend another winter in that warmer climate. New oak pews were installed in Redeemer Lutheran Church. Business on the bus line appeared to be growing and the company put on new busses with seating for 27 persons. S.F. Mullen and other Green Isle citizens were active in petitioning for inclusion of Green Isle in the routing of T.H. 25, which merely specified a road connecting Belle Plaine and Norwood. Mr. and Mrs. Matt Nelsen retired from the farm and moved into the house they had bought in Belle Plaine. Their youngest son, Peter, moved in with them. Mrs. James Kivel, who was a resident of Faxon Township until two years previous, died at her home in St. Paul at age 65. At St. Thomas Church took place the marriage of Miss Josephine Duane, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Duane, to William P. O’Connor of Marysburg, at which place the couple established their home. Members of the Anderson and Johnson families went to Braham to attend the funeral of the little daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Nanard Anderson. Nellie and Bridget Colbert of Edmonton, Canada, arrived for a visit with their uncle, P.A. Colbert, and family at Assumption. The marriage of Miss Loretta Lucy and Michael S. Prendergast took place at Sacred Heart Church. The couple left on a wedding trip to Gary, Ind. The former Neubeiser building was taken over by the Columbus Hall Association and was to be known as Columbus Hall. An aged couple, Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Wolf, were hit and knocked down by an automobile near their home in the southeast corner of town. Seriously hurt, both recovered. Mrs. Hunsberger, nee Ellen McCarthy, died in Henderson at age 57. She was born and reared on the John McCarthy farm in Blakeley Township. It was an election period with Minnesota voters having choice of three parties – Republican, Democrat and Farmer-Labor. The big battle was between Shipstead and Kellogg for U.S. senator.

Dear Editor, In a few short weeks Minnesotans will be voting on amending our Constitution to define marriage in our State. Like many others I have read and researched both sides of the issue in order to make an informed decision. In my study I have come to realize that we are beingasked to choose between the known and unknown The known being marriage between a man and a woman in a monogamous union vowing to stay together until death do them part. Our other choice is an unknown, if I decide to vote ‘no’ what wording will replace one man and one woman? How can I or anyone make a choice when the choice is vague and undefined? The choice seems too risky when we are looking to change what has been an institution central to human society for centuries. Brigid Halloran Altman Shakopee

Dear Editor, On November 6th voters of State Senate District 20 will have an opportunity to cast a ballot for Mike Dudley. Mike was born and raised in Northfield and graduated from Northfield High School, and later graduated from the University of St. Thomas and the University of Minnesota Law School. Mike spent 26 years in law enforcement as an FBI special agent and worked for 10 years in the Mankato FBI office protecting and serving the people of Rice and Le Sueur counties. For the last 15 years Mike has been a resident of rural New Prague. His conservative views are shaped by an understanding of limited government, fiscal restraint, economic reinvigoration for job creation as well as his personal courage and faith. Mike lost his wife Tammy to cancer and has raised his 16 year old son as a single parent. He is no stranger to life’s challenges. He is a concerned, principled, pro-life individual that will serve with integrity and commitment. I believe his experiences and background uniquely qualify him to be a strong leader and voice for the residents of our Senate District. Please cast your vote for Mike Dudley on November 6th. Mike Daly Belle Plaine

Dear Editor, This letter is in support of Mike Dudley running for State Senate in District 20. Mike is a retired FBI agent. He is a widower who lives outside New Prague in Helena Township with his 16-year-old son. I talked to a number of people that know Mike well, and they all say he’s a good man. Mike believes government has to learn to live within its means. Mike believes that we cannot afford a government that tries to be everything to everyone. We must concentrate on priorities like education, infrastructure and a safety net for the elderly and truly vulnerable. Instead of growing government Mike believes in growing the private sector by reforming our tax and regulatory environment to help the private sector create good paying jobs. More taxpayers is what we need, not more taxes. Another thing that I agree with Mike Dudley on is drug testing

for those who receive welfare benefits. Mike believes that if you are receiving welfare benefits the public has a right to expect that you are busy trying to get off public assistance, not busy taking drugs. Taxpayer’s money must go to the truly vulnerable. As a farmer I appreciate that Mike comes from a family farm he is still involved in. Mike has an understanding of the agriculture industry and farming. He will be a strong supporter for agriculture. Mike is also pro-life. I hope you will join us in voting for Mike Dudley for state Senate. Larry and Marion Entinger Belle Plaine

Dear Editor, It’s time for change! Scott County is growing and through the eyes of progress we need the best talent serving as our County Commissioners... those willing to serve the interests of the whole county. Joe Wagner has been one of the longest serving County Commissioners, 14 years.  Mr. Wagner allows the other four Commissioners to pick up the majority of the work load. Issues of the entire metro area are discussed and acted upon by 80 different boards and committees with the Met Council. There are three County Board meetings and a work session each month. At the end of each County Board meeting the commissioners are asked to give an overview from the different board and committee meetings they have attended since the board last met. The majority of the time Mr Wagner just states, “I have nothing to report.� His belief being that these boards and committees are a waste of time and chooses not to participate. The County Board serves the entire county, not just respective districts. Mr Wagner doesn’t seem to understand this. Joe Wagner wants to resonate the message that he wants to save the tax payers as much money as he can. That wasn’t shown through his action when he voted a raise for himself. Over the course of the 14 years he has received $574,000 (over a half million dollars) in wages. We need representation from a person who wants to be engaged in working for all of Scott County. Jerry Kucera is willing to get involved. Dear Editor, Don McNeil On the surface, the voter ID Shakopee amendment seems simple and straightforward.

Dear Editor, When we think about community service, one of the names that come to mind is Todd Redmann. In the last 10+ years we have seen first-hand the dedication and service that Todd brings to our communities. Todd inspires others to get involved too. He is a driving force for the youth in the Le Sueur-Henderson school district with his involvement with Youth Opportunities (YO), Healthy Communities, and Community Education. Whenever there is something going on in our communities, it is not unusual to see Todd right in the middle of the activity, whether it be Lions Club, United Way, School functions/committees, or one of the many other organizations that serve to make our community a better place. There are 4 things that you need to know about Todd: 1. He is dedicated. 2. He is a collaborator. 3. He is not afraid of hard work. 4. He is a problem solver. We are proud to support him in his continued community service and hope that you will join us in voting for Todd Redmann for Le Sueur County Commissioner on November 6th. We know that he will bring the same commitment at the county level as we have observed locally. Robert and Michelle Steiger Le Sueur

Farmers Market Corner Two weeks remain for the Belle Plaine Farmers Market season. Come on down and get your squash, pumpkins and apples. Squash will keep for many months in a cool space so stock up for the holidays and beyond. Some wonderful volunteers representing the market manned a water station Saturday for the half marathon. Their enthusiasm and encouragement paid off as the runners voted them into first place. Our thanks go out to the zombies – Kade, Kiersten, Katelyn and Tyson! As you put your garden to bed for the winter, remember to remove spoiled and rotten debris. Insects and disease will thrive on bad fruit throughout the winter and wreak havoc on

your spring garden. It’s also time to plant your garlic for next year. Be sure and use heavy mulch and check it throughout the winter, especially if there isn’t snow cover. If there’s baked or canned goods you may crave through the winter, ask your favorite vendor for contact information. The market will be closed soon but the vendors are still accommodating. The Belle Plaine Farmers Market is held Wednesdays from 3:30-6:30 p.m. May through October at Court Square Park. No early sales, please respect the bell. Vendors are welcome. For more information, contact Lisa Fahey at 952-873-5665 or Diane Skelley at 952-8732467.

City Council (continued from page 1) dress drainage issues at Sunrise Lane to include a drainage tile to the city’s south limit line. The project was bid last year but the work was not completed because the city was unable to obtain the signed easements for all the properties that were needed. Therefore, that portion of the project was not awarded and was removed from construction. The necessary easements have since been obtained and filed with Scott County. Staff contacted Selly Excavating, which will perform the work at a total cost of $15,910. The next lowest bid was $19,839. The job will be completed this fall. *Voted 4-2 to approve a threeyear contract between the city and the International Union of Operating Engineers Local No. 49. The agreement calls for 2 percent pay increases for public works employees in 2013, 2014 and 2015. In 2013, “call pay� will remain at 1.5 times the regular pay but increase to 1.75 times in 2014 and 2.0 times in 2015. Council members Paul Chard and Gary Trost accounted for the two no votes, the latter of whom expressed dissatisfaction with the call pay increases. *Unanimously authorized the purchase of a grass water spray unit for the fire department at a cost of $5,890, of which half ($2,940) is being paid for by Belle Plaine Fire Relief Association. *Unanimously approved the Belle Plaine Fire Department Relief Association’s annual benefit amount as well as the required

It isn’t too early to think about next year. Presented by Pete Plut

We are now in plain view of the “fiscal cliff�. After the election, Congress may or may not end up keeping income and estate tax rates at their recent levels. Next year may bring some notable financial developments, and it isn’t too soon for households to think about them. You may want to prioritize tax reduction. If the Bush-era tax cuts sunset, everyone will see higher taxes. The federal income tax brackets (10%, 15%, 25%, 28%, 33%, 35%) that we have known for the last nine years would be replaced by five higher ones (15%, 28%, 31%, 36%, 39.6%) come 2013.1 High earners may want to watch their incomes. If your earned income for 2013 tops $200,000 - or exceeds $250,000, in the case of a couple – you may face two Medicare surtaxes. While the Medicare payroll tax on earned incomes above these levels is set to rise to 2.35% from the current 1.45%, the second surtax may prove to be the real annoyance: there is scheduled to be a 3.8% charge on net investment income for individuals and couples whose modified adjusted gross incomes surpass these levels.1,2 Some fine points about this second surtax must be mentioned. It would actually be levied on the lesser of two amounts – either your net investment income or excess MAGI above the $200,000/$250,000 levels. Most investment income derived from material participation in a business activity would be exempt from the 3.8% surtax, along with tax-exempt interest income, tax-exempt gains realized from selling your home, retirement plan distributions and income that would already be subject to self-employed Social Security tax.2 The bottom line is that a bonus, an IRA distribution, or a sizable capital gain may push your earned income above these thresholds – and it will be wise to consider the impact that would have. You may have less take-home pay next year. Social Security taxes for paycheck employees are slated to return to the 6.2% level in 2013. They’ve been at 4.2% since the start of 2011. If you earn $75,000 during 2013, you will take home about $1,500 less of it than you would have in 2012. If you earn $50,000, we’re talking $1,000 less.3 Any 2013 Social Security COLA may be minor. In 2012, the cost of living adjustment to Social Security benefits was 3.6%. Before that, Social Security recipients went three years without a COLA. As inflation is mild, whatever COLA is announced this fall in tandem with Medicare premium changes may not amount to much.1 Next year, medical expense deductions may shrink. If you are thinking about delaying a procedure or surgery until 2013, remember that the itemized deduction threshold for unreimbursed medical expenses is set to increase from 7.5% to 10% of adjusted gross income in 2013. Even if that happens, however, the threshold will remain at 7.5% through 2016 for taxpayers age 65 and older.1 You may be able to find a better Medicare Advantage plan for 2013. The Affordable Care Act has altered the landscape for these plans (and their prescription drug coverage). Using Medicare’s Plan Finder (click on the “Find health & drug plans� link at Medicare.gov), you may discover similar or better coverage at lower premiums. The enrollment period for 2013 coverage runs from October 15 to December 7.1 Those without work may find a safety net gone. Extended jobless benefits may disappear for the long-term unemployed at the start of 2013. Will Congress extend them once again? Possibly – but that isn’t a given. The estate & gift tax exemptions may shrink significantly. The (unified) lifetime federal gift and estate tax exemption is currently set at $5.12 million – and it will drop to $1 million in 2013 if Congress stands pat. Federal gift tax and estate tax rates are also slated to max out at 55% in 2013, as opposed to 35% in 2012. Right now, an unused portion of a $5.12 million lifetime exemption is portable to a surviving spouse; in 2013, that portability is supposed to disappear.4 Many analysts and economists think that Congress will eventually abide by President Obama’s wishes and take things back to 2009 instead of 2001 – that is, a $3.5 million estate tax exemption, a $1 million lifetime gift tax exemption, and a 45% maximum estate and gift tax rate.4 Prepare for year-end drama ... and for 2013. The last two months of 2012 will surely bring political theatre to Capitol Hill. As it unfolds, you may want to look ahead to next year and consider the impact that these potential changes could have on your financial life.

Thanks to John and Sheila Lambrecht for the generous donation of pine trees to the Belle Plaine Public Schools. The trees were recently moved to their new home near the tennis courts out at our Athletic Complex and they look great. The twentytwo trees will provide a great start to a more substantial wind barrier for our tennis athletes and fans for many years in the future. Thanks again for this generous donation! Election Day is three weeks away and with every Minnesota House and Senate seat on the ballot, this is a big year for Minnesota in terms of potential changes in our legislative bodies. As candidates come knocking on your door, here are a few education related questions that I would encourage you to ask with some supporting information for each question. Please remember to vote on Tuesday, November 6th. Do you believe there is a need for increased funding for Minnesota’s public schools? If so, how should increases to school funding be paid for? ¡ The education basic formula, which is the per pupil dollar amount that comes from the state, has lagged behind inflation for the past two decades. The gap is over $2,200 per pupil. This is how much less we spend on today's students compared with the children in our schools in the early 1990's. ¡ Minnesotans believe that schools are not adequately funded. In a 2011 poll by Decision Resources, 59% of Minnesotans said the State of Minnesota did not adequately fund public education that year, 33% said schools were adequately funded and 8% were unsure ¡ The most effective way to reduce the reliance on the referendum levy is adequate and consistent state funding of the general education formula and the special education formula. The growing dependence of voter-approved school levies for funding basic educational opportunities causes alarming disparities among school districts. How would you correct this disparity of opportunity that is based merely on a child’s zip code? ¡ Today 90% of school districts have school levies. In 1990, only 47% had levies and, back then, they were called excess levies used to provide "extras". Now levies are called operating referendums as this revenue is critical to funding basic educational opportunities. ¡ The problem with school levies is the cost to the local taxpayer for a levy dollar is based on the individual property wealth of each district, which varies greatly around the state. Without significant commercial or industrial development to broaden the tax base, the cost of a school levy is very high for local residents. Equalization, which is state aid that makes voter approved school levies more affordable for citizens in low property wealth districts, has eroded since its inception in 1993. What priority would you place on increasing the equalization factors so that the local taxpayer cost for a school levy dollar is the same across the state? ¡ Taxpayers in low property wealth school districts such as Belle Plaine pay two or three times more in property taxes than taxpayers in high property wealth districts to support the same level of school levy funding for their schools. ¡ Sixty percent of the variability between metro district’s referendum amounts can be attributed the low cost to local taxpayer equals larger referendum amount approved by voters. As always, if you have any questions about school matters, please feel free to call me at 873-2400 or check our website at www.belleplaine.k12.mn.us. Go Tigers!

BELLE PLAINE - If you’re the parent of a high school student who’s planning on attending a four-year state college or private university, you should attend this popular FREE workshop. The workshop will focus on little-known ways of getting money for college, no matter how much income you make, or how good of a student you have. The class will include

such topics as how to increase your eligibility for free grant money, and the single biggest mistake that 8 out of 10 parents make when planning for college. The workshop date is Saturday October 27th from 10:30 am to 11:30 am at the Belle Plaine Public Library. The workshop is being taught by Ducerus-Minnesota. A

national leading expert on helping families prepare and pay for college. For over twenty years they have been helping families pay for college without changing their lifestyle or going broke. Seating is free, but limited by the size of the room. To reserve your seat, please email: richard.nead@ducerus.com

All-Academic/All-Big 12 honors. The next male racer (Zach Fogarty of Rochester) did not cross the finish until almost eight minutes after Thies. But between them was 16-year-old McKenzie Holt of St. Cloud, who covered the course in a time of 1:21:43, which was by far and away the fastest female time and second best overall. Holt, who is a junior at St. Cloud Christian High School, has already been a three-time high school state meet qualifier in both cross country and track. She is currently ranked among the top five cross country racers in the state in Class 1A. As for half-marathons, Holt holds the female Minnesota all-time age records for a halfmarathon race for the ages of 13, 14, 15 and now 16. Repeating as the overall champion in the 5K race was Brent Giesen, 32, of Cottage Grove. His time of 19:50 was 30 seconds faster than that of secondplace finisher Chris Miller of

How do I begin to ever thank everyone in Belle Plaine & the surrounding area for all the loving support that has been shown to me & my family over the past 2 years? The benefit held on my behalf on September 29 was overwhelming & so very heartwarming. I give my biggest thanks to everyone that helped organize such a wonderful event, to St. John Lutheran Church for such a wonderful facility in which to have the benefit, to all the people that worked that day & the days/weeks leading up to the benefit, to everyone that contributed in any way-the food, the silent auction items, the cards, the very generous donations, and all the hugs and well wishes received from everyone that attended. Even thought I haven’t lived in Belle Plaine for 30 years, Belle Plaine & St. John Lutheran Church will always be “home� to me. I feel so loved & supported & appreciate your continued thoughts & prayers for me & my family.

Many Wanted Lincoln to Release Captured Indians

The following story was written by J. E. Townsend founder of the Belle Plaine Herald. He was a witness to life in Belle Plaine before and after the Dakota conflict of 1862. This article was originally written and published in 1934. By J. E. Townsend

by Dr. Vicki Luehmann (Borowicz)

ACNE TREATMENT MAY LEAD TO EYE PROBLEMS As effective as the acne treatment Isotretinoin may be at clearing teenage skin, it has also been linked to potential health problems. The most recent of these to gain the attention of optometrist is the pill’s link to a two-fold increased risk of developing eye problems such as “pink eyeâ€? (conjunctivitis), styes, and dry eyes. The explanation behind the drug’s increased risk of conjunctivitis (inammation of the membrane lining the eyelids) has to do with the fact that Isotretinoin can disrupt the function of the meibomian glands, which produce an oily substance that prevents the eyes from drying. Users of Isotretinoin are urged to see the optometrist before they take it and every three months while taking the drug. Acne treatment can help people enjoy healthier-looking skin, but certain medications can affect the eyes. You can rely on us for highly skilled eye health care for the entire family. Please call us at 952-492-2350 to schedule an eye health examination that includes a review of the medications you are taking, an examination of the interior and exterior parts of the eyes, and screening for vision diseases. We prescribe medications for “pink eyeâ€? (conjunctivitis), styes, and dry eyes. Our ofďŹ ce is located at 223 E. First Street, Suite 101. We accept most vision insurances. P.S. Isotretinoin use has been linked with increased risk of impaired night vision, swelling of the optic nerve and corneal opacity.

Joseph Edward Townsend horrible that I would not care to repeat it here. It appears there was no accurate record of the number of white persons killed, but it has been estimated at about one thousand men, women and children. After the Indians were finally subdued in the Minnesota Valley then the troubled commenced in getting permission from Washington to execute about three hundred of the most murderous ones, which, finally ended up with thirty eight. Protests passed back and forth, but I will give only the most important parts of the lengthy correspondence carried on with Washington officials. From the commencement of hostilities until the 16th day of September, the war was carried on almost entirely from the resources of the state alone, and some little assistance from our sister states in the way of arms and ammunition. On this latter date Major General John Pope, who was appointed by the president of the United States to take command of the Department of the Northwest, arrived and established his headquarters in the city of St. Paul in this state. The principal part of the service of the season’s campaign had previously been gone through with; but the forces previously under the command of the state authorities were immediately turned over to his command, and the aftermovements were entirely under his control and direction. He brought to the aid of troops both infantry and cavalry. These forces were specially distributed at different points along the frontier, and assisted in guarding the settlements during the autumn, but they were recalled and sent out of the state before the closing of winter.

It was contemplated to send the 6th and 7th Regiments Minnesota Volunteers to take part in the war against the rebels in the Southern states, and orders to this effect had already been issued, but on the 6th of November, in obedience to the expressed wish of a large portion of the inhabitants of the state, these orders were countermanded. They were directed to remain in the state, and the 3rd Regiment was ordered off instead. All the forces then remaining in the state were then assigned to winter quarters at such points as it was thought expedient to keep guarded during the winter, and on the 25th of November, major General Pope removed his headquarters to Madison, in the state of Wisconsin. Brig. General Sibley then remained in the immediate command of the troops retained in service against the Indians, and established his headquarters in the city of St. Paul. On the 9th of October, the “Mankato Record� thus speaks of this expedition: “Considering the many serious disadvantages under which General Sibley has labored, a deficiency of arms and ammunition, scarcity of provisions, and the total absence of calvary at a time when he could have successfully pursued and captured Little Crow and his followers, the expedition has been successful beyond the most sanguine anticipation. Of the three hundred white captives in the hands of the Indians at the commencement of the war, all, or nearly all, have been retaken and returned to their friends. Much private property has been secured, and some fifteen hundred Indians, engaged directly or indirectly in the massacres, have actually stained their hands in this blood of our frontier settlers are condemned to suffer death. Their sentence will be carried into execution, unless countermanded by authorities at Washington.� After the campaign of 1862 and the guilty parties were confined at Camp Lincoln, near Mendota, the idea of executing capitally, three hundred Indians, aroused the sympathy of those far removed from the scenes of their inhuman butcheries. President Lincoln was importuned, principally by parties in the East, for the release of

these Indians. The voice of the blood of innocence crying from the ground, the wailings of mothers bereft of their children was hushed in the tender cry of sympathy, stern in the belief, “Whosoever sheddth man’s blood by man shall his blood be shed,� seemed now the most zealous for the pardon of these merciless outlaws, who, without cause had shed blood of innocent women and children in a time of peace. Senator S. S. Wilkinson and Congressman C. Aldrich an William Windom made an urgent appeal to the president for the proper execution of the sentence in the case of these Indians. From this appeal the following extract will be sufficient to indicate its character: “The people of Minnesota, Mr. President, have stood firmly by you and your administration. They have given both you and it their cordial support. They have not violated any law. They have borne these sufferings with patience, such as few people have ever exhibited under extreme trials. These Indians now are at their mercy; but our people have not risen to slaughter; because they believed their president would deal with them justly. “We are told, Mr. president, that the committee from Pennsylvania, whose families are living happily in their pleasant homes in that state, have called upon you to pardon these Indians; because if it is done, the Indians will become more insolent and cruel than they ever were before, believing, as they certainly will, that their Great Father at Washington either justifies their acts or is afraid to punish them for their crimes. “We protest against it, because if the president does not permit the execution to take place under the forms of law, the outraged people of Minnesota will dispose of these wretches without law. We do not wish to see mob law inaugurated in Minnesota, as it certainly will be, if you force the people to it. We tremble at the approach of such a condition of things in our state. “You can give us peace, or you can give us lawless violence. We pray you, as in view of all we have suffered, and of the danger which still awaits us, let the law be executed. Let justice be done to our people!�

constantly improving. I was also anxious to see the impact the merger had on their program. We played well and consistent, without extreme highs or lows. It was a good match for us to try some different options in our rotations in preparation for the playoffs.” Haley Fogarty led Belle Plaine in three categories – kills (12), ace serves (3) and digs (21). Other statistical leaders for the Tigers were Kirsten Johnson (eight kills, seven digs, 22 set assists and one ace serve), Jordan Going (seven kills), Marykay Nasby (six kills, six set assists and four digs), Mariena Hayden (three kills and five digs), Claire Otto (10 digs and one ace serve), Emily Vinkemeier (two kills and two digs), Amara Meyer (two kills), Ellie Murphy (one kill), Devin Lehman (three digs and nine set assists) and Erica Selly (one ace serve).

ranked teams in the field are host Chaska, Stewartville and Eagan. The section playoffs are scheduled to begin Thursday, Oct. 25. The Tigers will likely play their first match at home against a lower-seeded team. Brackets for the 16-team tournament will be announced this week. Belle Plaine and Le Sueur-Henderson are expected to be among the top seeds. Tigers 3, Tri-City United 0 The home team Titans gave the Tigers all they could handle in the first game Thursday night before the Tigers held on for a 25-23 victory. Belle Plaine carried that momentum to 25-13, 25-20 victories in the next two games. “TCU has had a very good year, beating most of the same conference opponents to date as we have,” said Belle Plaine coach Cassie Wolpern. “Their defense is always scrappy, along with an offense that is

quarter. Belle Plaine’s biggest defensive heroics occurred in the fourth quarter when Zach Bahr recovered a fumble after the Giants drove to the Tiger 18 yard line. LS-H then got the ball at the Belle Plaine 49 yard line with 1:37 left in the game. A big quarterback sack by Blayne Prochaska followed by an interception by Jayden Howie sealed the victory for the Tigers. Belle Plaine had 284 total yards, all but 66 of those coming through the air. Narveson completed 11 of 20 passes for 218 yards and two touchdowns. He was intercepted once. Eliason had his biggest night of the season as he caught nine passes for 164 yards and two TDs. Mitchell Nelson and Dahlke both had one catch for 39 and 15 yards, respectively. Dillon Haefner led the Tigers in rushing with 13 carries for 57 yards. No one else had more than 5 yards. Defensively, Nelson led the team in tackles with 13. Jacob Nowak, Prochaska, Bahr and Ben Stier each had eight

The Giants’ Peter Wagner capped a 65-yard drive with a 1-yard TD plunge that made it 13-6 with 10:22 left in the first half. But then another change incorporated by the Tigers paid dividends when tight end Gavin Dauwalter lined up in the backfield, took the handoff and scored from a yard out. Derek Dahlke, filling in for the injured Cameron Klehr, kicked his second point-after of the night to give Belle Plaine a 14-point cushion heading into halftime. The Tigers’ offense was shutdown in the second half but the defense rose to the occasion when it needed to. The only touchdown of the half came after a mishandled punt return by Belle Plaine was fallen on by the Giants at the Belle Plaine 16 yard line. That led to a 10-yard scoring toss from quarterback Alex Klockmann to wide receiver Ty O’Brien that made it 20-13 with 2:04 left in the third

The tennis season came to a close for Belle Plaine High School as the Tigers put up some strong fights but could not advance beyond the first two rounds of the Section 2A Individual Tournament in the warmth of the indoor Swanson Center at Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter on Thursday. Belle Plaine’s doubles team of Sophie Brazil and Jamie Read started out with an exciting match as they won a three-setter against a team from St. Peter 4-6, 6-3, 10-8 (tiebreaker). Next up was the third-seeded team from Waseca and Brazil and Read lost 0-6, 0-6. Belle Plaine’s other doubles team at section was that of Jane Schneider and Allison Stolee, who also won their first match as they bounced back after losing the first set in a tiebreaker against Sibley East with 6-3, 6-1 triumphs in the next two sets. They then squared off against the top-seeded doubles team from Waseca and led 5-4 in the first set before losing 57. Waseca also won the second set 6-1.

night. The Wildcats posted a 25-20, 28-26, 25-17 victory, their second of the season over Belle Plaine. The first came in a 2-0 win at a tournament in Marshall in early September. The Tigers had multiple chances to win the second game Monday but the Wildcats were able to prevail. Waconia also overcame a 5-0 deficit in the third game, outscoring Belle Plaine 25-12 the rest of the way. “It’s always disappointing to lose but Waconia is tough. They have a talented offense that matches ours at the net, so as anticipated, it was going to come down to defense. They kept the ball off the floor better than we did. With that said, this isn’t a loss I’m necessarily disappointed in. We came ready to play and competed for the majority of the match, looking well on our way to being in tune for playoffs next week,” Wolpern said.

H.S. Cross Country

Belle Plaine Girls Win MRC Title, Boys Finish Fourth Meuleners Defends Girls’ Individual Championship by Dan Ruud After finishing second the past four years, the Belle Plaine High School girls’ cross country team captured Thursday’s Minnesota River Conference Meet at Norwood Young America’s Baylor Park. It was the Tigers’ first MRC team championship since 2006, which was the program’s first-ever conference title. The Tigers this year were led by sophomore Janessa Meuleners, who was the meet’s individual medalist for a secondstraight year. Belle Plaine, who had two other runners (eighth-grader Haley Leger and sophomore Emilyn Siemon) place in the top 10, which is good for allconference honors, finished with a team total of 46 points, well ahead of second-place Watertown-Mayer’s 73. Rounding out the eight-team field were Jordan (83), Norwood Young America (115), Mayer Lutheran (122), Tri-City United (137), Sibley East (161) and Le SueurHenderson (170). Meuleners and Mayer Lutheran freshman Hannah Truniger, who had finished ahead of Meuleners in a coed meet at Ney Nature Center the previous week, ran nearly sideby-side through most of the race before Meuleners opened up a sizeable lead down the homestretch of the 4,000-meter course. Meuleners finished in a course-record time of 14:39 and Truniger was next in 14:55. Also receiving all-conference honors were junior Julie Orlow

LS-H fumbled the ball on this play and it was a scramble to see who would recover it. This particular skirmish was won by the Giants but the Tigers won the war 20-13.

Tigers Hold Off Giants by Dan Ruud The Belle Plaine High School football team changed some things up Friday night and in the process snapped a fivegame losing streak and picked up its first Minnesota River Conference win of the season

by a 20-13 margin at Le SueurHenderson. The Tigers, sporting red pants for the first time this season, opted to start freshman Luke Narveson at quarterback for the first time of his young career. Narveson responded by throw-

ing two first-quarter touchdown passes to wide receiver Nick Eliason that gave the Tigers a 13-0 lead. The first was a 35yard catch-and-run on the Tigers’ first possession and the

Cologne City Council Fires Embattled Administrator

A Long Race Route Members of the Belle Plaine High School cross country program manned two water stations along Saturday’s race routes. At this one members were dressed in togas as they provided water to the runners. The half-marathon course, which began and ended at Court Square Park in Belle Plaine, started out through downtown Belle Plaine and proceeded across the Highway 25 bridge. From there the runners made their way to Sibley County Road 6 on their way to Blakeley, where they crossed the bridge on their way to Scott County Road 6 and eventually back into Belle Plaine.

by John Mueller Just over a week after it placed City Administrator John Douville on paid leave of absence, the Cologne City Council ďŹ red him. By a 4-1 vote after a closed session Oct. 10, the council terminated Douville’s employment. Councilor Matt Lein, who voted against putting Douville on leave claiming it was “ridiculous,â€? voted against the motion to ďŹ re him. Mayor Bernie Shambour says the city does not owe Douville any severance pay, a statement Douville disputed Monday evening. The council claimed, without offering any details to support its ďŹ ndings, ruled Douville failed to effectively and efďŹ ciently direct city operations, that he failed to coordinate and operate projects in line with city objectives, that he violated city personnel policies and engaged in retaliatory behavior against certain employees. It also determined he destroyed unnamed city property without the council’s consent, that he threatened, intimidated or coerced a council member and that he failed to treat council members with respect and dignity. The council also claimed Douville used his ofďŹ ce for his personal gain, failed to deposit a developer’s transportation fee in a timely manner and did not bring to the council’s attention issues regarding crossover funding. Douville argued the process to rate his performance was awed, as was the consideration of allegations against him. The council conducted several closed sessions regarding his performance during the summer and until recently never notiďŹ ed Douville of the allegations against him or allowed him to defend himself against those charges. “I completely disagree with the process that I was put un-





FOR

der this summer and the corresponding results,â€? he said. He plans to appeal the decision of the council regarding these allegations. “I feel I have very objective evidence in my defense whereas most of the council’s allegations are subjective and very general in nature,â€? he said. “I have asked for clariďŹ cation of the general allegations so I can put together a proper defense for each and every one of them. I have yet to receive that documentation.â€? Douville noted all of his previous performance reviews have been excellent and conceded the handling of charges against him have negatively impacted on his work. “It all started to change this spring when I reported to the council an employee had failed to do critical work and intentionally hid that work from me,â€? he said. “At that point the council decided to come after my performance and not my subordinates. Early on, I requested an independent investigator be used as recommended by the League of Minnesota Cities (LMC) to avoid conicts of interest. This didn’t happen, causing a large burden on the taxpayers and I feel a very awed outcome. Douville was the ďŹ rst administrator in Cologne’s history.

Hiring a New City Administrator

Monday, the city council unanimously agreed to begin a search for a new administrator. Shambour said the council would look for an existing administrator in a city smaller than Cologne or perhaps an assistant administrator in a city larger than Cologne. The council hopes to have a new city administrator in place by the end of 2012. Shambour expects the search will be more regional than

statewide and will begin locally, advertising through wordof-mouth, local advertising or even the city’s Web site. Shambour previously has declined comment on Douville’s situation, referring all questions to the city’s attorney handling the matter. Without an administrator on hand, the city is working to ďŹ nalize water and sewer rates for 2013 as well as the ďŹ nal property tax levy. The council approved minor use of overtime for city staff in both the front ofďŹ ce as well as Cologne Public Works. It is also working on making sure the locks are replaced, although Shambour said the city is not certain who handled the locks when Cologne City Hall/ Community Center was built in 2006.
