Board OKs Pacts With School Principals, Community Ed. Director

The Belle Plaine School Board approved a two-year contract with its three building principals and Community Development Director Monday evening. The contract with the three principals – Kim DeWitte at Chatfield, Liann Hanson at Oak Crest and Dave Kreft at Belle Plaine Junior-Senior High School -- is a 6.77 percent increase in wages and benefits over the two years. The principals’ positions have had a salary freeze the past two years. The 220-day contracts include one percent increase on the principals’ salary schedule for the 2012-13 and 1.75 percent increase for 2013-14. It increases Kreft’s salary to $91,910 for the current school year. Hanson’s salary increases to $97,433 in 2012-2013 while DeWitte’s salary increases to $84,840. The agreement also includes an additional $2,000 for principals who earn their doctor-

ate and a $400 increase in the school district’s contribution to a retirement account. Citing the workload of a junior-senior high principal, Director Judy Nagel, a juniorsenior high administrator herself, suggested the next set of negotiations should consider increasing the contract to 240 or 245 days. The contract with Nelson Ladd, director of Community Development, reflects a 4.73 percent increase. The position’s salary has been frozen the past two years. The agreement with Ladd increases his annual salary to $52,240 for 201213, $54,620 for 2013-14 and $56,805 for 2014-15. The city pays 30 percent of his salary. Superintendent Kelly Smith advised the board that although Ladd is not ready to retire in the immediate future, the district will likely be hard-pressed to find his replacement willing to fulfill the demands of the position for the wage.

Smith Earns an ‘A’

Director Matt Lenz, the board’s chairman, reviewed the board’s review of Superintendent Kelly Smith’s performance the past year. Lenz said the board was very pleased with Smith’s work with school finance and budgets as well as his involvement in the community. The board also praised Smith’s work with helping them approve a new strategic plan. He also was lauded for his work keeping directors informed on important issues as well as his leadership in enhancing the district’s technology and improving test scores. On a scale of 1-5, Lenz said Smith’s areas of strength rate him a 4.5. His areas needing development are rated at 3.6. “I think you’re doing a very good job,” Lenz said. After the meeting, Lenz said, “I’d give

There are plenty of choices to be made at the Belle Plaine Government Center and thousands of other polling places across the United States during next Tuesday’s General Election. The main event on the ballot in everyone of those locations will be what has been a very close race between President Barack Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney. Along with that, each polling place will offer up its own menu of choices, including Belle Plaine, where two local, four county, three federal and two state offices are up for election. There’s also two constitutional amendments on the ballot (see below). City of Belle Plaine residents can cast their ballot from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. next Tuesday. The Belle Plaine Government Center is located at 218 North Meridian Street downtown. Area township residents will vote at their respective township halls. Sample ballots appear on page 15. City Races Included locally is the race between incumbent Belle Plaine Mayor Tim Lies and challenger Mike Pingalore, the latter of whom is midway through his first four-year term on the city council. If he loses to Lies, Pingalore will retain his seat on the

council. If Pingalore defeats Lies, the council will make a decision on how and who to appoint to take Pingalore’s place in early 2013. Meanwhile, there are three candidates vying for the two council seats that are up for election. They are incumbents Cary Coop and Gary Trost, and newcomer Kurt Laabs. The top two vote-getters will automatically earn a four-year term on the council. County Races Two Sand Creek Township men are vying to represent District 1, which includes the Belle Plaine, Jordan and New Prague areas. They are longtime incumbent Joe Wagner, an apple farmer and funeral director, and challenger Jerry Kucera, an insurance agent in Shakopee. Kucera lost to Wagner in the 2010 election but had the most votes between him, Wagner and LuAnne Lemke in the primary election earlier this year, the latter of whom was eliminated from the race. All three of the local Soil and Water Conservation District offices up for election this year are uncontested. The candidates are Doug Schoenecker (District 1), Linda Brown (District 2) and Robert Casey (District 3). State Races In the newly-created House of Representatives District 20A,

Rep. Kelby Woodard, R-Belle Plaine, is challenged by DFLer Ryan Wolf of Le Sueur. The other state race on the ballot in Belle Plaine is for the newly-created Senate District 20, where former Sen. Kevin Dahle, DFL-Northfield, is running against Mike Dudley, R-New Prague. Federal Offices The two other federal races besides the presidential that Belle Plaine voters can help decide next Tuesday are those of U.S. Senator and U.S. Representative (District 2). The U.S. Senator seat is currently held by DFLer Amy Klobuchar. She is being challenged by Republican Kurt Bill as well as Stephen Williams (Independence), Tim David (Grassroots) and Michael Cavlan (Minnesota Open Progressive). For U.S. Representative, District 2, it’s Republican John Kline being opposed by DFLer Mike Obermeuller. Constitutional Amendments When you step into the booth next Tuesday, you will be voting either “yes” or “no” to the following constitutional amendment questions. Failure to vote on a constitutional amendment will have the same effect as

Savage Man Charged in ‘09 Burglaries of B.P. Businesses

Cleanup Efforts Continue in Belle Plaine Michelle and Dan McGowan and Geoff O’Brien, all of the Rochester Rough Riders, were among over 40 volunteers from the Minnesota Four Wheel Drive Association -- four wheel drive enthusiasts from Duluth to Austin -- who came to Belle Plaine Saturday to continue cleanup efforts at the former V & S Auto Salvage Yard north of Forest Street. The effort allowed the volunteers to use their four-wheel drive vehicles to remove several hundred tires from the ground and fill 10 20-yard dumpsters with salvaged and decaying pieces from automobiles and trucks. Paul Nordell, a parks and trails program coordinator for the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, said ongoing cleanup efforts will likely resume next fall.

Oct. 20, 2009, just after 5 a.m., the owner of Cindy’s Kitchen, on the 600 block of Commerce Drive E. reported someone had broken into the restaurant. Police found the door frame damaged from the forced entry. The owner found $30 in missing coin from a cabinet near the nearly-empty can of Mountain Dew. Police said results from DNA tests pointed to Lind. Although he was an early suspect because of previous con-

victions for burglary, checks of his cell phone use the day of the burglaries didn’t indicate he was in Belle Plaine. “Without the DNA, we had nothing,” said Belle Plaine Police Investigator Terry Stier. Also on Oct. 20, 2009, police were called to a reported attempted burglary at Car Co Auto Parts on East Commerce Drive. The service entry to the business was damaged. The re-

Delbert C. Busse, 96, of Prior Lake passed away peacefully the late evening of Thursday, October 25, 2012 at Friendship Manor Nursing Home in Shakopee.  Visitation was on Monday, October 29 from 4-7 p.m. at Ballard-Sunder Funeral Home in Prior Lake, and one hour prior to the service at the church. The Celebration of Life Service was on Tuesday, October 30 at 11 a.m., at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Prior Lake. He was laid to rest at St. Paul’s Lutheran Cemetery in Prior Lake. On Friday, March 3, 1916 in Prior Lake, Delbert Carl was born to George H. and Otille E. (Dorn) Busse. The oldest of eight children, Delbert grew up on the many family farms his

dad rented in Scott, Dakota, and Carver Counties. He attended school through the 8th grade. For most of Delbert’s life, he was an auto mechanic. Starting out in a garage on Lyndale Avenue, he later worked for Melvin Borchardt at the Ford Dealership in Prior Lake. Entering the business world as an owner/operator, Delbert served the Prior Lake community for over 20 years with his shop called Standard Brake and Tune Up. After selling the business, he then worked for Toro Company as a painter, until retiring in 1976. Proudly serving during World War II, Delbert was in the Third Armored Division Spearhead for the United States Army. He received many medals along the way from the European Theater.  Before shipping out overseas, Delbert married Rosalia Oldenburg on February 17, 1943 at the military base in Indian Town Gap in Pennsylvania. Returning from the war, they made their lifelong home in Prior Lake. They were blessed with four children. He was an active member of the community and served on the Prior Lake Fire Department from 1958 until retiring in 1976. Working his way up the ranks, Delbert was also the fire chief from 1967-1975. Serving his church of St. Paul’s Lutheran, he taught Sunday school and served on the cemetery board for decades. He was also a member of the Prior Lake V.F.W. “It’s said a smile is good medicine.” That was Delbert’s reasoning for sharing of his 2000 plus collection of stories and jokes, with family and friends, at birthdays, anniversaries and even when he paid his bills. This gesture was Delbert’s hope to have brightened the

day and make you smile. Each Christmas he would receive stamps and envelopes as gifts, just to assure the continuation of this tradition. A rock hound, Delbert enjoyed the hunt for a good agate to polish up and place in his collection. Enjoying drawing and painting, he had either a pencil or brush in his hand working on surfaces such as mailing envelopes, canvas, garage doors and even basement doors at the family home. Musically inclined, he could pick up any type of any instrument and without music lessons could play any song by ear. Delbert enjoyed bird watching and working in his flower garden and even enjoyed sharing the wealth of the flowers and plants with others. A stubborn German, but thrifty by nature, Delbert was artistic, loving and thoughtful, with a wealth of mechanical knowledge.

Those Who Foreclosed May be Eligible for Compensation Area residents who experienced home foreclosure in 2009-2010 have until Dec. 31, 2012 to request an independent assessment of whether they deserve monetary compensation for foreclosure processing deficiencies. According to the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis, nearly 2,500 Scott County households may be eligible for a free and impartial thirdparty review of whether their mortgage servicer handled their foreclosure inappropriately. This program, known as the Independent Foreclosure Review (IFR), is part of an enforcement action against 14 major mortgage servicers by the Federal Reserve and the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency. “These reviews are not just for those who lost their homes to foreclosure,” according to Dorothy Bridges, senior vice president at the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis. “If your mortgage was serviced by one of the 14 covered servicers and was involved in any part of the foreclosure process during 2009-2010, from initial filing to sale or redemption period, you

can request an independent review.” An impartial expert will reexamine each case, according to Bridges, and recommend whether compensation is warranted for mortgage servicer deficiencies that resulted in financial harm to the borrower. “And you have nothing to lose – there’s absolutely no charge of any kind for these reviews, and you don’t sign away any rights to pursue separate legal actions,” Bridges said. If you or someone you know may be eligible, view the informational video on the Federal Reserve’s IFR webpage http://www.federalreserve.gov/ consumerinfo/independentforeclosure-review.htm. This website also provides further information, including a list of the 14 mortgage servicers included in the program and instructions on how to request a review by the Dec. 31 deadline. To avoid scams, Bridges recommends using these official sites and absolutely avoiding any person or organization who asks you to pay anything for this review.

Thirty Years Ago This Week

Letter to the Editor Letter to the Editor Election Week Policy: The Herald does not publish any new Letters to the Editor the week before the election because it would not allow time for any rebuttal. The only letter we are publishing this week is a response to a letter that was previously published.

Legion Auxiliary Honors Past Presidents Past Belle Plaine American Legion Auxiliary presidents were honored in the fall of 1982 at a special luncheon at the Belle Plaine Vets Club. Included are front row, from left, Mary O’Connell, Mabel Hessian and Margaret Ince. In the middle row are Mary Minton, Agnes Bailey, Ella Smith, Sidonia Anderson and Exerine Tolzman.

Regis of Chisholm. Mrs. Maria Johanna Wolter, Assumption, died at the age of 78. Mrs. Lee Mueller set a new record at the local bowling alley when she rolled a three-game total of 560. The draft board struck a second time at the championship Tiger baseball team. George Bodmer, ace hurler for Belle Plaine, was inducted into the Army. A month earlier, Uncle Sam took Fred Keup, the Tiger first baseman who had a batting average of .253 for the season and was virtually the reason for Belle Plaine winning the league playoffs when he homered in the eighth inning of the final game.

90 Years Ago (1922)

In that fall’s election, Belle Plaine borough cast 455 ballots, the township 270 and Blakeley 145. The Christenson Store opened a grocery department and took in eggs in trade. The Lawrence Coyle family had moved to Milwaukee but would return to Belle Plaine in the spring. Henning Anderson sold his 40-acre farm in Hancock Township, the former Hoban place, to a Mr. Binder of Cologne. The Anderson family moved to their new home in Mille Lacs County. Chas. F. Trost and family were moving to Shakopee where he would operate P.H. Donovan’s 400-acre stock farm two miles east of town. The Blakeley home guards turned out in force when word came that the Henderson depot was burglarized for the second time within two weeks, but the bandit did not come Blakeley way. Louis Binder, 74, prominent resident of Belle Plaine since 1908, died. For many years he farmed in Blakeley Township. Shipstead, Farmer-Labor candidate for U.S. Senator, decisively defeated Kellogg. In the four counties of Scott, Sibley, Carver and Le Sueur, Shipstead carried each with a total of 11,515, Kellogg 5,276 and Mrs. Olesen, Democratic nominee, 5,043.

Gerhard Rolf, resident of Hancock Township since 1859, died and his funeral was held from Zion Church of Benton. He was survived by wife and seven children. A number from this locality went to New Prague to attend the funeral of Rev. Chas. Hovorka, who was a chaplain in France and died while attending the Legion convention in New Orleans. His father was for many years register of deeds for Scott County. Judge Tifft of Glencoe was reelected by a majority of 828 over P.W. Morrison of Norwood. Morrison carried Sibley and Le Sueur counties. Henry Arens was elected to the State Senate, defeating Kuntz of Waconia. Arens carried both Scott and Carver counties by strong margins. In Le Sueur County, Sen. Cosgrove was defeated by Fickling. In a Scott County contest, Hilgers of Jordan was elected county attorney, Weckman of Jordan won for sheriff, and Geister of Prior Lake was top for representative. In Carver County, Trende won the sheriff job, Lundstrom the clerk of court office, Odell the county attorneyship, Fabel for representative and Miss Elke for school superintendent. In Sibley County, all the old officials were reelected.

Another mystery photo will appear in next Wednesday’s Herald. If you recognize it, call 952-8732261.

120 Years Ago (1892)

At the monthly stock fair cows sold as high as $35. Many horses changed hands. The national election went strongly Democratic. Cleveland was elected by a landslide and the Democrats had over a 100 margin in Congress. The Republican ticket carried in Minnesota with Knute Nelson winning by a margin of 20,000. O.M.

gest landslide election since the 1936 FDR triumph. He carried every state except eight southern and border states. Belle Plaine cast 897 ballots, giving Eisenhower 484 to 321 for Stevenson; helped return O’Hara to Congress 545 to 286 for Malone; and helped return Moriarty to the Legislature 652 to 172 for Egan. The Community Halloween Party was the most successful of any thus far held. The weather was ideal and there was a big turnout of youngsters from both town and country. There was an open house party in honor of the 45th wedding anniversary of Mr. and Mrs. Edw. C. Johnson, which was arranged by their children. Mrs. Arthur H. Schmidt of Blakeley, nee Veronica Schuman, died at St. Mary’s Hospital, Minneapolis. Her death was due to cancer. She was 52 years old. Rev. A.J. Doyle, who was pastor at Green Isle from 1923 until 1946, died at Piltown, Ireland, at the age of 70. Orcutt’s corn contest drew considerable interest with 27 farmers trying to outdo each other in the selection of the three best ears of corn. The winner was Glen Crosby of Blakeley and second place went to Henry Tiegs of Belle Plaine. Martin Schmidt of Blakeley was third. Mr. and Mrs. George Hespenheide observed their 25th wedding anniversary with a gathering of relatives and friends at their home. Unofficial returns had M.J. Kehoe of Jessenland one vote short of being elected commissioner of the fifth district, Sibley County. Hebeisen was ahead by one vote. Charles Haas was reelected commissioner of the first Scott County district by a wide margin – Haas 1,046, Karnitz 521. The Belle Plaine Fire Department was one of four to answer the call from the Heinrich Rannow farm in Jessenland. A corn crib with 1,000 bushels of corn burned as well as several hundred bales of hay. Mrs. William Conby, well known in this area, died at her home in Minneapolis. She was 71 years old. Harold Paul Bohnen, 24, son of Mr. and Mrs. Bohnen, nee Catherine Krekelberg of Belle Plaine, was killed in an auto accident when his car failed to make a turn on the highway near Litchfield. 60 Years Ago Sharkey brothers put in equip(1952) ment that fall to reduce still furDwight D. Eisenhower swept ther the actual handling of corn. into the presidency in the big- Their machine, called a corn In what was labeled a landslide victory, Rudy Perpich would be the first former governor to return to that position in Minnesota history. Perpich’s running mate, Marlene Johnson, would also become Minnesota’s first woman lt. governor. Belle Plaine voters helped hand Perpich the victory (768-481) over his Independent Republican challenger Wheelock Whitney. Voter turnout here was very heavy for an off-year election. According to City Clerk Larry Thompson, 1,287 people voted in Belle Plaine. In the 1980 presidential election, which generally would bring out more voters, a record 1,328 went to the polls here. Belle Plaine voters also helped hand incumbent Republican Congressman Tom Hagedorn a major upset as 32year-old State Sen. Tom Penny managed to be the first Democratic congressman to be elected from a southeastern Minnesota district since 1890. Locally, Fran Schuman was reelected mayor of Belle Plaine by an 866-391 margin over Ted Worm. Incumbent Ed Townsend was the top votegetter of the nine city council candidates with 608 votes. Ron Fenske (583) and Orville Heitkamp (536) were the other top vote-getters and would take their seats on the council in January. Two farm accidents claimed the lives of two area people. Mrs. Leslie (Hilda Wolpern) Kahle, 60, former Belle Plaine resident, was killed when a farm grain elevator collapsed and crushed her on her son Curtis’ farm near Gaylord. Harold Solheid, 52, of New Prague, was fatally injured after his clothes got caught in the power take-off on a corn dryer. In another overtime game, the Belle Plaine High School football team lost to Jordan 13-12. Both teams scored in the extra session but it was the Tigers inability to convert a two-point conversion that was the difference. It marked only the second time since 1968 that Jordan defeated Belle Plaine. The Tigers finished the season with a record of 2-5 in the conference, 3-6 overall. The Tiger volleyball team wrapped up a very difficult 1982 campaign as it finished last in the Minnesota River Conference with an 0-14 record. Arlington was the champ with a 14-0 mark, followed by Le Center at 12-2.

Dear Editor, This letter is in response to Don McNeil's letter to the editor attacking me in the October 17 edition of the Belle Plaine Herald. I am Commissioner Joe Wagner of Sand Creek Township and I proudly represent the First Commissioner District in Scott County, which includes Belle Plaine and the surrounding townships. Mr. McNeil, who does not even live in the First District, accused me of not attending extra committee meet-

ings for which I would receive a $50 per diem plus mileages. It is frustrating my opponent and his cronies are once again dragging up this issue. It is true. I do not attend additional committee meetings besides the ones I have accepted. I attend the meetings that matter most to the residents of the district, most notably Planning Commission, Extension and the Farm Advisory Board. Those committees best represent the interests of my district. It is true some commissioners attend many more committee meetings than I do. They've lined their pockets over the years with several thousand dollars in taxpayer monies for their personal per diems. When I first ran for the privilege of representing the good people of First Commissioner District, I promised I would be in the district to take care of the needs and wants of my constituents, the people whom I serve. I am here each day. My businesses are in the district. I contribute over $10,000 annually to the Belle Plaine tax base. Spending a half-day in St. Paul at a GIS meeting does not serve the people of the district well when we have talented staff with the skill and technical know-how to do the job. That's why they were hired. I am proud to serve the people of Belle Plaine and the surrounding area. I am seeking reelection to hopefully continue that privilege. Sincerely, Commissioner Joe Wagner

thing many in the congregation never saw since the director faces the choir, not the people attending the worship service. A beautiful hymn, performed especially well, would bring tears to the corners of her eyes. “That moved her,” Kiewel said. “But she didn’t look up. We might have started (crying).” Gransee has seen many students over the years. After graduating from college in 1965, she began teaching piano in Elgin, Wis., Northfield, Preston and eventually Belle Plaine. Her husband, Earl, was a schoolteacher and building principal. Each time he took a new job, she found a new group of students in a new community. In Preston and Northfield, she led the junior high school choirs. The Gransees moved to Belle Plaine in 1983. When the existing choir director stepped down, Anita was asked to take over. With experience leading church choirs, she accepted the request. “It was something I really wanted to do,” she said. Gransee also taught junior high school choir in the late1980s. The unpredictable nature of young teenagers kept things light. “They’re just fun. You can tell they don’t know what’s coming next, but they’ll figure it out,” she said. In the late-1990s, Gransee also worked with elementary school

choir. Music was important to Gransee from an early age. She grew up in Elk Mound, Wis. Her father was a dairy farmer. Both her parents wanted their daughter to follow her passion for music. While she was a sixthgrader, Gransee recalls the day the local high school principal delivered a new alto saxophone to the house. “I loved the saxophone. It had such a mellow sound,” she said. Her parents were willing to sacrifice for Anita’s development in music. “Of course, it meant one of the cows had to go. There wasn’t enough money in the jar.” The saxophone was her constant companion for years. Anita was a member of the school’s marching band, performing in parades and at school. After high school, she was a member of Augsburg College’s main vocal choir all four years before graduating with a degree in music education. The highlight of her years in the college choir was a European tour and a performance for the King of Norway. Though she’s a little uneasy about the services and ceremony Sunday, Gransee is accepting. She’d just as soon occupy a quiet spot in the background than be pulled into the spotlight. “She’s a very humble Norwegian,” Kiewel said. “We’ll really miss her.”

The site, www.usdakotawar. org, is designed for teachers, students, researchers and everybody else interested in the broader national causes of the war, the war itself and its farreaching consequences. The website reveals stories of survival, resilience and healing, and it uses primary sources, oral histories, maps, multiple perspectives and interactives to tell the history of the war, its causes and its aftermath. The public is invited to join discussions and also to post their family history related to the war in the “Share Your Story” section of the website. “This comprehensive website will help people in Minnesota and beyond learn in a new way about an incredibly important time in state and U.S. history,”

said Rose Sherman, chief information officer for the Minnesota Historical Society. “And because the site uses video, audio and interactives tools, we’re confident it will engage middle and high school students with this history.” In this final phase of the website, visitors can learn about the Dakota homeland, newcomers to Minnesota, treaties, the war and it’s aftermath and the Dakota nation today. This year marks the 150th year since the U.S.-Dakota War was fought over six weeks in Southwestern Minnesota, resulting in hundreds dead, the Dakota exiled from their homeland and the largest mass execution in U.S. history – the hangings of 38 Dakota men in Mankato. The war’s causes began decades earlier and the impact of the war is still felt today. Throughout this year, the Minnesota Historical Society is offering many new ways to learn about the war, its causes and its aftermath, including an exhibit at the Minnesota History Center. Visit www.usdakotawar.org for a list of all initiatives, events and resources for commemorating and learning about the war.

State Department of Health Offering Free Mammograms October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month across the nation and in Minnesota and Gov. Mark Dayton on Monday proclaimed the month of October as Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The month is an opportunity for women to learn about breast cancer and the benefits of screening and early detection of the disease. For example, the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH), Sage Screening Program provides year-round, free breast and cervical cancer screenings to uninsured and underinsured women age 40 years and older. MDH hopes to make more women in Minnesota aware of this free program. “We think many women are not receiving these life-saving screening tests because they have no health insurance or their insurance has deductibles or copayments they cannot afford to pay. Sage can help,” said Jonathan Slater, director of Cancer Control at MDH. Sage has a network of more than 430 statewide health care providers and has served over 138,000 women since 1991. More than 2,000 women have been diagnosed and treated for breast and

cervical cancer through Sage. This year, it is estimated that 3,520 Minnesotan women will be diagnosed with breast cancer and 640 Minnesota women will die from the disease, according to the American Cancer Society. Annual mammography has been reported to reduce breast cancer deaths in women age 40 and older by detecting the disease in its earliest stages when it is most easily treated. Women seeking eligibility information about the free mammography program - or women who want to make an appointment for a free mammogram - should call Sage at 1-888-6HEALTH (1-888-643-2584). Women new to Sage are also eligible to receive $10 for getting screened through the program. Women living in neighboring states or whose incomes exceed Sage’s guidelines should call the American Cancer Society at 1800-227-2345 to learn of other free and low-cost programs. The proclamation is available at http://mn.gov/governor/images/ October_Breast_Cancer_Awareness_Month_2012.pdf. For more information about Sage, visit http://www.mnsage. com/.

SAVING

On Friday Evening, three coach buses carrying Belle Plaine 6th graders, teachers, and parent volunteers, rolled into the Oak Crest parking lot where anxious parents were waiting. They all had enjoyed a week long adventure in Finland MN, home of Wolf Ridge Environmental Learning Center. The group proved to not be known as fair weather adventurists, and did not let the rain, fog, and low temperatures keep them from having a most memorable time. Joe and Tricia Burmeister’s

Father is still at Camp Courage and was brought here by Carol Weiers. Father looks great. The Archbishop changed the plans for Father Mike to be here in Father Dave’s absence. Father Roger Hessian had our Mass Sunday. He is great and we welcome him. Our furnace in church was not working and it was cold. Father Roger warmed the atmosphere by this little quip: “Many are cold, but few are frozen.” Katelyn Zurn and other members of the Belle Plaine FFA Chapter traveled by motorcoach to the 85th National FFA Convention in Indianapolis, IN, this past week. Katelyn and three other Belle Plaine

members competed in the Ag Sales Career Development Event. The team was awarded a silver medal for their performance. The group attended a concert by the Band Perry and Brantley Gilbert at the Lucus Oil Stadium. They also attended a rodeo, The Church Basement Ladies play and dinner as well as many other tours and sessions at the FFA Convention Center. There were approximately 56,000 members and guest present at the convention throughout the week-long event. Mallory Glisczinski was also among the FFA members attending the convention. Middle Age is when broadness of the mind and narrowness of the waist change places! Humor Corner A woman was reading the classified ads when she burst out laughing. “Listen to this,” she said to her husband. “This ad states a guy is offering to swap his wife for a season ticket to the stadium.” “Hmm,” her husband said not looking up from his magazine. Teasing him, she asked, “Would you swap me for a season ticket?” “Absolutely not,” he replied. “The season’s over.”

St. Thomas Mass is scheduled at St. Thomas Catholic Church on Saturday, Nov. 10 by Rev. Roger Hessian. Father Hessian officiated at the Mass on Saturday, Oct. 27 for many who attended. Thank you, Father!

Kathy Halloran, wife of Bruce Halloran, was honored on her birthday at the 5 p.m. Mass at St. Thomas Church on Saturday followed by all family members attending a birthday dinner at the Fishtale Grill in New Prague. Happy Birthday Kathy, and many more! All family members and friends joined together on Sunday, Oct. 28 to celebrate the birthday of Matthew Devine at the home of his mother, Mary Devine, in Le Sueur. After a great chicken dinner and a game of cards and the Happy Birthday song for Matthew, everyone departed for home,

happy. Bob and Becky Block enjoyed a camping trip to Red Wing this past week, down along the Mississippi River. They later traveled down the Mississippi side of the river to Alma, where they met a classmate of Bob's, Larry Farl, who owned Alma Leather. They enjoyed meeting their friends and spending time together. On their return home they stopped at the National Eagle Center in Wabasha, which was very interesting. What an enjoyable vacation, and they learned so much. Tom and Loni Graham entertained their seven grandchildren at their home in Henderson on Saturday by the hayrides on their farm. Along with their parents, all from Buffalo, Mankato and Eden Prairie, all enjoyed the two-hour ride on the hay rack, traveling the country and they really enjoyed their visit.

Kudos to our choir students and Director Cheryl Gorton for a wonderful concert last night. Between our two choirs we have over 160 students participating and they sound great singing a variety of music genres. The next program for the choir is Monday, December 17 at 7 p.m. That concert will be a combined performance of the Junior and Senior High Choirs. Congratulations to sophomore Janessa Meuleners for qualifying for yet another state cross country meet. Janessa, one of the top rated runners in the area, battled through illness at the Section Meet to qualify for the state meet that will be held on Saturday at St. Olaf College. Good luck, Janessa! For the past several years, we have been fortunate enough to have Minnesota Reading Corps tutors at Chatfield Elementary assisting our youngest readers in developing reading skills. This year we have two teachers at Chatfield Elementary and one at Oak Crest Elementary. Minnesota Reading Corps (MRC), an AmeriCorps program, is a statewide initiative to ensure every child in the state becomes a successful reader by the end of third grade. MRC tutors commit to providing daily one-on-one tutoring sessions with students who read just below grade level proficiency; various interventions are also available for preschool-aged students. Teachers who are entering the program spend three intensive days at Institute Training in August along with hours of reading and practicing the interventions to fully prepare them for this service commitment they have signed up for. “It is true with this position that until you experience it for yourself, you don’t really understand what the typical day will hold,� says Sheila Kennedy Brown, full-time MRC tutor in her first year at a Twin Cities area school. The typical day for a full-time tutor involves performing at least fifteen 20-minute interventions, a rushed lunch or prep time, and handling serendipitous issues that arise while working with our students, like runny noses and post-lunch sugar highs. “Having MRC in our school has been fantastic,� says Mike Moore, principal at an MRC School. “We have seen great growth from the students who are in the program. Parents have been supportive of our efforts and teachers have welcomed the additional support. We are extremely fortunate to have this resource in our school.� Full-time MRC members are expected to fulfill 1,720 hours of service by the end of the school year; half-time members serve 920. Most of those hours come from serving at our sites, but several hundred additional hours must be earned by volunteering in our community. The most important and rewarding moments for MRC teachers come when the students admit their newfound love of reading. Many of the students that MRC tutors work with lack the necessary confidence to improve their skills. One time each week, students are tested for one minute to monitor how many words they are able to read in a given passage. “Seeing the smiles on the students’ faces when they work hard and are able to see and know for themselves that their fluency is improving is heartwarming,� Brown says. The hope is that every student, no matter what difficulties they face, will become a successful reader by the end of third grade. The hard work, dedication and patience of Minnesota Reading Corps tutors are making that happen, one 20-minute intervention at a time. We are grateful to have three MRC tutors working with us this year; Angela Ritter and Veronica Swenson at Chatfield Elementary and Diane Rudd at Oak Crest Elementary. Thanks for the great work that you do with our students! 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!

Chaska Gets Levee Judge’s Order Spares Referendum on Le Sueur OK for Ballpark City Nuisance Ordinance Flood Mitigation Chaska recently received an approval from the Minnesota Valley Wildlife Refuge for the construction of an 8-foot levee to protect Athletic Park from flooding. The city wants to encircle the ballpark, one of the best known small-town ballparks in the area, with a berm. It would reduce the impact of flooding and save the city money in cleanup costs when the Minnesota River tops its banks. The ballpark is the only Chaska municipal property still in the floodplain. The city estimates it will take about 16,000 cubic yards of

fill to construct the levee. The $250,000 price tag could be reduced dramatically by a conditional-use permit allowing developers to deposit from their projects at the ballpark site. Staff from the Minnesota Wildlife Refuge OK’d the city’s levee plan after determining the levee’s possible impact on the refuge would be very minor, said Gary Shimek, a supervisory refuge wildlife specialist. Pending city council approval of a construction plan, a trail atop the levee will connect with a trail through the refuge. -- Chaska Herald

A Le Sueur District Court judge recently ruled state law trumps a residents’ request for a referendum to approve a city ordinance. Judge M. Michael Baxter’s ruling means the City of Le Sueur won’t have to hold a special election on the approval of a proposed nuisance ordinance that, if approved, would have likely killed the proposed biodigester project.

the proposed ordinance on the ballot. The proposed ordinance cited corn silage, potato waste and animal manure as potential health hazards. As proposed, the materials will be processed into fuel and a soil enhancement. Baxter wrote the proposed ordinance had some merit, but stated it was not the role of the court to usurp state law. The plaintiffs – Patti Lynn Abrahamson, John Weber and the late Frank Ebert – filed the suit July 20 after the Le Sueur City Council declined to place the proposed ordinance on a ballot for approval by city voters. -- Le Sueur News-Herald

November 6, 2012

November is Life-Writing Month. Have you ever considered writing a memoir or autobiography? You might want to give it some serious thought. While many of us feel that our lives may be too insignificant to bother with such a thing, it is easy to under-value your life experiences. Your descendants may be absolutely thrilled to be able to read about your life. Your life story might fill in a historical puzzle by supplying names, places and dates to researchers of the future. Things that we consider to be trivial may be of great importance years from now. Think about this. Have you ever looked through an old family photo album and wondered who some of the people were? What was the event where they gathered? Why was somebody that you expected to see in the picture, absent from these pictures? When was the picture taken?. It is a shame that nobody wrote that down. The good news is that you do not have to jump into Life Writing all by yourself. Your local library is hosting a program to assist you in your writing. On Thursday November 8, from 6-8 p.m. the Belle Plaine Library is holding a “Writing Life Memories” class. This class helps capture our life memories in written form. Lisa Jamison from Belle Plaine is doing this workshop and has done other workshops here at the library with children. She has been teaching this technique for 4 years now. I promise you will enjoy her presentation and beginning writing your memories. Even if you are not sure about doing any writing, we encourage you to come and see what it all about. It is a wonderful opportunity and it might give you a whole new view on your life and what you might like to pass forward into your family history. For more information, stop by the library for a brochure and sign up. This programs is funded with money from Minnesota’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.

School Board (continued from page 1) him an A.� Lenz aid two areas the board wants Smith to improve upon include documenting the performance of the district’s middle-level managers and also tracking the board’s ongoing progress on meeting its own performance benchmarks. Lenz said he’d prefer rating Smith’s performance more than annually to keep ideas fresh rather than remembering back. He apologized for dragging the review out. The review should have been completed several months ago. Smith is in the third year of a three-year contract. He and the board have not yet begun discussions on a new three-year agreement beginning in 201314. Lenz expects those talks will begin yet this fall.

Serving the Community Members of Belle Plaine’s Cub Scout Pack 324 spent a recent Saturday afternoon walking three miles along Hickory Boulevard/Scott County Highway 5 picking up litter. Completing this community service project helps the boys earn their rank advancements while instilling the benefits of serving their community. Even though it did rain on them for a short period of time, the boys enjoyed being outside and observed several frogs in their natural habitat.

A Generous Donation Minnetonka-based United Health Group recently donated $146,338 raised at its annual charity golf tournament to the United Mitochondrial Disease Foundation (UMDF). The donation was the brainchild of Sue Hartman, a UHG employee, who nominated the UMDF as a recipient of the money in honor of her nephew, Patrick Luskey, 9, who has mitochondrial disease. Patrick is the son of Bonnie and Jeff Luskey of Belle Plaine, where he attends Oak Crest Elementary School. Mitochondrial diseases result from the failure of the mitochondria, which is located in the cells of our bodies and is responsible for creating more than 90 percent of the energy needed to sustain life and support growth. When mitochondria fail, less energy is produced causing cell injury or death. On a larger scale, organ systems begin to fail. The disease is often debilitating. In some cases, it may result in death. There is no cure for mitochondrial disease.

New Fiber Plan, Group Emerges After Sibley County Withdraws A plan to bring improved telephone, TV and Internet service to Sibley County’s buinesses, township and city residents via fiber optics lines changed dramatically after the Sibley County board withdrew from the proposal last Tuesday. Led by commissioners Jim Nytes of Henderson Township, Bill Pinske of Arlington and Jim Swanson of Gaylord, the county board voted 3-2 to pull out, unwilling to agree to cover its share of the $5 million debt service reserve fund. Commissioners cited uncertain costs of covering potential shortfalls of the service and a tenuous position when law firms would not give the board an opinion on the legality of the county issuing bonds to pay the county’s share of implementation of the $70 million project. The Renville-Sibley (RS) Fiber Joint Powers board previously addressed all of their concerns but the three commissioners remained skeptical of the information provided. Tuesday evening (Oct. 23), the Green Isle City Council rescinded resolutions pledging the city’s support and tax revenue to help fund its share of the original fiber project. The cities will receive refunds

on the money they put into the original plan, about $3,000 in Green Isle’s case, if the project goes forward to bonding later this year. The original plan included the Sibley County cities of Gibbon, Winthrop, Gaylord, New Auburn, Green Isle and Henderson, the city of Fairfax in Renville County and the rural 426 phone exchange around Fairfax, all of rural Sibley County as well as the cities of Lafayette, Buffalo Lake, Stewart and Brownton. Henderson, the 11th city, has a deadline of Nov. 7 to decide if it will join, said Winthrop City Administrator Mark Erickson, a member of the joint powers board that oversaw the original project. Meanwhile, Sibley County’s 17 townships are working to form a separate fiber cooperative of their own. They have asked the RS Fiber Board to provide phone, Internet and TV services if the cooperative fiber network is constructed. The original project would have been funded with a $70 revenue bond. Construction of the network would have cost $50 million with $10 million used for three years of bond payments, $5 million to establish a debt service reserve fund

and $5 for working capital. The total bond amount for the revamped project, which includes the cities and the rural portion of Renville County, could be in the neighborhood of $35 to $40 million, Erickson said. The lower cost is based on a reduced number of miles of fiber optic line to be constructed. The original plan consisted of about 1,200 miles of fiber and averaged $10,000 per farm installation and $2,500 for residential property in the cities. The new plan should have about 200 miles of fiber, Erickson said. The old plan called for Green Isle to cover 2.5 percent of any funds drawn upon the debt service reserve fund. The new plan could give Green Isle a larger share of the project but result in a smaller financial commitment. The engineers and financial advisors are recalculating construction costs and the cities and Renville County will receive the updated information in November. Green Isle Councilor Dale Zumberge, the lone candidate for mayor in the city’s upcoming election, expects the council will be interested in the new proposal.

Without Levy Renewals, Area School District Pondering Busing Fee If voters in the Chaska-based Eastern Carver County (ECC) School Board decide not to renew existing property tax levies, the school board could implement a fee for students who live within two miles of school and ride the bus to it or extended no-busing area as part of a possible $8.75 million budget reduction. The two levies are slated to expire at the end of the 2013-14 school year. The school board will discuss fees for busing at an upcoming workshop. Busing is typically a school district’s sec-

ond-largest cost behind staff. The ECC school district, which includes East Union Elementary School about nine miles northeast of Belle Plaine, is considering alternatives to the funding taxpayer-approved levies provide. State law requires the district to provide free transportation to students who live more than two miles from the school. It allows the district to charge a fee for busing within two miles. The ECC School District could eliminate busing within two miles, a move its transpor-

tation director says offers more disadvantages than advantages. Adding a fee for service within two miles also carries an array of questions. They include a variety of economic and fee management factors. The district is not required to follow the free/reduced meal program guidelines for charging a transportation fee. Owatonna, Buffalo-Hanover, Eden Prairie and Minnetonka school districts are among those that charge fees for busing within two miles. -- Chaska Herald

Area Elections Feature Incumbents, Challengers and Write-In Candidates After several weeks of campaigning, candidates for county board and city council are making the final push for votes as Election Day (Nov. 6) nears. In Scott County, all five county commissioners are up for reelection, thanks to the changing population in the five commissioner districts. Besides the Wagner-Kucera race, Debbie Barber of Shakopee challenges Commissioner David Menden of Shakopee. Brent Lawrence of Credit River Township is challenging Commissioner Tom Wolf of Credit River Township. Commissioners Barbara Marschall of Prior Lake and Jon Ulrich of Savage are both running without an opponent. Across the river in Carver County, Jim Walter of Cologne is challenging Commissioner Jim Ische of Hancock Township for a four-year term representing a district that covers most of southern Carver County. Because redistricting did not change the boundaries of the district, there is no race in Sibley County’s first commissioner district where Jim Nytes of Henderson Township is the incumbent. Nytes was elected in 2010. In Le Sueur County, Second District Commissioner Joe Connolly of Le Sueur is running unopposed. In the Third Commissioner District, Todd Redmann and John King, both of the Le Sueur area, are running for the seat retiring Commissioner Joe Doherty holds. At the state level, Glenn Gruenhagen, R-Glencoe, and DFLer Logan Campa are running for the House District 18B. The district includes eastern Sibley County. Senate District has Scott Newman, R-Hutchinson, running against Steve Schiroo, a DFLer from Cokato. In Senate District 47, Julianne

Ortman, R-Chanhassen, is running against James Weygand, a DFLer from Carver. House District 47A, which includes southern Carver County, Rep. Ernie Leidiger, R-Mayer, is challenged by Keith Pickering, a DFLer from Watertown. In House District 55B, which includes central Scott County, Tony Albright, a Prior Lake Republican, is running against DFLer Travis Burton of Jordan. Senate District 55 has DFLer Kathy Busch of Shakopee running against Eric Pratt, a Republican from Prior Lake.

Cologne

Councilor Matt Lein is the only person to file for mayor. But after Lein broke from ranks and opposed the termination of the city administrator, Councilor Scott Williams, who filed for re-election as a council member, announced he would challenge Lein as a write-in. Williams’ name will remain on the ballot as a candidate for councilor. Councilor Jill Skaaland, who did not file for re-election, is also seeking re-election as a write-in. Joel Sievers, who did not file for city councilor, is also seeking support as a writein. Newcomer Jeffrey McInnis, who actually filed for the election, is also seeking a councilor’s seat.

Green Isle

Councilor Dale ZumBerge is the only candidate for the city’s mayor. First elected in 1998, ZumBerge is the longest-serving member of the city council. The council has two seats for four-year terms. Councilor Mark Wentzlaff and Brian Oelfke are seeking election to four-year terms. The council has two two-year seats up for special election, thanks to the departure of councilors Shane Sheets and Laurie

Pepin.

Henderson

Voters will elect two new members to the Henderson City Council to replace Paul Menne and Les Mediger. Mediger is not seeking re-election, while Menne will run unopposed to be Henderson’s next mayor. Lee Browning, Jeff Steinborn and James Brenno are vying for the two city council seats.

Jordan

Just up the road, eight candidates for city councilor seats are running for three spots. They are Terry Stier, David Murray, Michael Griffin, Beth Fournier, Tanya Velishek, Nancy Murray, Sally Schultz and Jeffrey Will. Mayor Pete Ewals is challenged by Councilor Mike Shaw and Dan Elke.

New Prague

Two candidates for city council – Mark Bartusek and Pat Scripture – are running for two seats. Chuck Nickolay and Joe Wollin are running for mayor of New Prague.

Area Townships

Several area townships are holding fall elections, most with incumbents running unchallenged. They include Belle Plaine, Blakeley, St. Lawrence and Sand Creek in Scott County. In St. Lawrence Township, nobody filled for Supervisor Hubert Jeurissen’s seat. He is seeking the seat as a write-in. In Carver County, Benton, Hancock and Dahlgren townships in southern Carver County are holding fall elections. In Sibley County, Faxon, Jessenland, Henderson and Washington Lake townships are holding elections. Their incumbents are also primarily unchallenged.

Renting Sibley County Farmland Will Likely Cost More in 2013

The cost of renting tillable farmland in Sibley County will likely cost more next year, according to the Sibley County Extension Office. The 2012-13 survey indicates the cost of renting tillable farmland in the eastern half of the county is on the rise. In nine eastern Sibley County townships were the surveys were returned, land rented in 2012 ranged from $376 per acre in Kelso Township to $206 per acre in Henderson Township. Countywide, values of rented land were lower in the western half of Sibley County. The survey says 14 parcels covering 1,573 acres in Moltke and Severance townships in far western Sibley County, rented for 126 to $193 per acre, respectively. One parcel of tillable land in Grafton Township, in northwest Sibley County, rented for $140 per acre in 2012, according to the survey. The survey says the cost of renting land will be more expensive in 2013. In eastern Sibley County, per-acre rent on tillable land in Green Isle Township should increase by about 15.7 percent, from $330.21 in 2012 to $382.19, according to the survey. It should jump by about 21.2 percent in Henderson Township, from $262.74 per acre to $318.56, the survey says. The increasing value of tillable land is nothing new. In 2009, for example, the survey indicated Green Isle Township landowners received $152.73 per tillable acre. The 2009 survey indicated they expected to receive $161.45 per tillable

Increasing Ag. Land Prices Could Mean Lower Taxes in Town Bad news for farmland owners could be good for property owners in town. In Le Sueur County, the increasing value of tillable land could create a shift driving down the property owners’ taxes. Le Sueur County Auditor Joe Boetttcher recently said the increasing value of land on the farm could and the county holding the line on its budget could be a formula that equates to a property tax decrease. In 2007, Le Sueur County farmland sold for an average of $4,074 per acre, according to Minnesota Land Economics. In

2011, the average sale price of tillable land in Le Sueur County was $4,805 – an increase of 17.94 percent. Sibley County has also seen an increase in the value of tillable land, as evidenced by double-digit increases in the per-month rent charges. The increasing value of farmland, coupled with decreasing value of residential properties could equate to a reduction in residential property taxes, said Le Sueur County Assessor Dave Armstrong. -- Le Sueur News-Herald

Cologne OKs Final Plats for Village at Cologne, Academy Cologne Academy’s fourth and fifth phases and a small section of the Village at Cologne housing received approval from the Cologne City Council on Oct. 8. The council unanimously granted Hans Hagen Homes’ request for final plat for Village at Cologne 11th and 12th additions. The plats involve four houses at one end of the development southwest of the intersection of Highway 212 and County Road 53 and the next two phases of the charter school. Cologne Academy opened its third phase this fall, a 13,000square-foot addition funded by the developer. The new additions will include additional classrooms and support space to supporting a growing enrollment. The school has about 385 students this year. Footings for the fourth addi-

tion were planned for digging this fall, but have been delayed until February or March, said Councilor Matt Lien, a member of the school’s board of directors. The fourth addition will be open for the 2013-14 school year, when the charter school expects to welcome at least 414 students in kindergarten through eighth grade. The fifth addition is planned for the 2014-15 school year, when enrollment is expected to approach 470 students. The academy is planning on 516 students for the 2015-16 school year.

Steady Utility Rates an Investment in Carver’s Future Utility rates in Carver will remain at 2012 levels next year as an investment toward paying for future projects. The Carver City Council is considering maintaining the existing rates even though doing so will create a $451,173 surplus for the water, sanitary sewer and storm water funds. The fund balance is used to pay for major projects, maintenance and emergency repairs. In 2011, the city tapped fund balance to pay $239,000 for painting a water tower. Carver has maintained steady rates the past two years. Previously, the city has seen sometimes-significant rate increases, like a 15 percent bump in 2005

and a 20 percent jump in 2010. The current water rate structure charges residents $4.93 per 1,000 gallons up to 20,000 gallons a month. As part of a two-tiered structure intended to promote conservation, the city charges $7.40 per 1,000 gallons when using more than 20,000 gallons during the billing cycle. Customers pay $5.62 per 1,000 gallons in the sanitary sewer system. The city sets the rate based on usage during January, February and March – before residential landscape watering begins. The city’s 1,185 residential customers and 44 commercial customers can look forward to

Chili Cook-Off (continued from page 1)

Selbrade – co-workers at Coborn’s in Belle Plaine -- are planning a chicken chili. The recipe for their entry is a closely-guarded secret. He spent the past week on a combination vacation in the deep South searching for exotic ingredients. They’ll add several seasonings – brown sugar, jalapeños and a few other goodies Selbrade brings back – to give their entry a special taste. “Each recipe, each batch you make tends to come out differently. It depends on who you’re making it for,” she said. “It has to have a kick, but not overwhelming.” The cook-off will bring teams together to create and reheat their best recipes. Judging begins at 3:30 p.m. with general service and voting opening at 4 p.m. Judges – Belle Plaine Mayor Tim Lies, Police Chief Tom Stolee and members of his department -- will choose two winners and a popular vote winner will all be honored at the for-fun competition. The entry for each team is a 5-gallon pot of chili. Teams will prepare the chili on their own and reheat it at Oak Crest, said Scott Parks, a Jordan resident who came up with the idea for the benefit the next major utility project in cook-off. 2016 – a new municipal well.

Construction on the left-only turn lane to southbound County Road 53 from westbound Highway 212 and left-only turn lane to northbound Highway 284 from eastbound Highway 284 remain incomplete, Douville said. The new configuration at the intersection of Highway 212 and County Road 53/Highway 284 prohibits left turns from northbound County Road 53 to westbound Highway 212 and from southbound Highway 284 to eastbound Highway 212. The project also includes removing a left-hand turn lane from westbound Highway 212 to County Road 36 and an expanded entrance lane from County Road 36 to Highway 212. That work can’t begin until the work at the junction of 212/284-53 is complete, Douville said.

Chili Cook-Off

When: Saturday (Nov. 3) Where: Oak Crest Elementary School, 1101 Commerce Drive W. Times: Judging, 3:30 p.m.; Tasting, 4-8 p.m. Cost: $8 for adults, $4 children under 12. Benefits: Wizards Special Olympics team, a group of athletes from Belle Plaine and the surrounding area. cause people will want to taste the winning entry,” she said, laughing. “This is a fun event, a fund-raiser. We’re just honored to be part of it because it goes to help Special Olympics.” The cost for chili-eating enthusiasts not in the competition is $8 for adults, $4 for children under 12. Dessert will be included along with bread to cleanse the pallet. Drinks will be sold. Tickets will be drawn for door prizes. “It’s a great deal,” Parks said. “For eight bucks, it’s pretty much an all-you-can-eat chili buffet.” With advance publicity and his contacts in the industry, he’s hoping for a nice crowd for a worthy cause. Chili chefs are a spirited group and Parks concedes the competition’s liberal definition of chili could lead to debates hotter than the chili itself. A wide assortment of cooking styles and

recipes are expected. “There’s definitely going to be a wide variety of styles. Everybody’s got their own of cooking chili,” Parks said. “There could be some infighting among the chefs.” Parks came up with the idea not as a means to promote his own career as a chef for Holiday Inn on St. Paul’s east side, but rather to help the Wizardz. It troubled him that many of the families can’t afford to send their Special Olympians to state competitions. He estimates it costs the full team about $2,500 for a weekend at a state competition in St. Paul. Members of the Wizardz participate in volleyball, bocce ball and bowling. Without being able to spend the weekend at state competitions, many of the team’s members and their parents turn the event into a long day of competition, with parents driving to and from early in the morning and back late in the evening, Parks said. He also wants members of the Wizardz to have the weekend experience to make friends on other teams. It was at one such competition that Parks took a suggestion from a state Special Olympics official and blended his own culinary acumen to come up with the chili-cook-off benefit. He’s hoping to deposit at least $2,000 into the team’s account after expenses associated with the benefit are paid.

Police have also collected evidence they believe connects Lind to the burglary of Subway at 809 Prairie Street E. March 16. Lind is charged with breaking into the restaurant and entering it through a window on the west side of the business. The damage to the window was valued at $1,000. Employees opening the business that morning found the safe open and $383 in cash missing. A surveillance photo shows a burglar police believe matches Lind’s height and weight. Lind has served prison time for a previous burglary. Minnesota Department of Corrections record show he was in prison from December of 2010 through last May.

Senate District 18 The race pits Sen. Scott Newman, R-Hutchinson, against Steve Schiroo, a DFLer from Cokato. He did not respond to the questionnaire. The district is made up of an area that includes all of Sibley County.

Sen. Scott Newman

Why are you seeking election to Minnesota Senate and what separates you from your opponent? Public service and I have the time, education and the desire. Daniel Webster once said, “All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing.” Life’s experiences, education and legislative expertise are vastly different between my opponent and myself. If elected, what are your priorities and (be specific) how will you accomplish them? Our revenue resources are finite. In the current biennium, we have budgeted $62.6 billion to pay for goods and services to provide for our approximately 5.5 million people. If the state would reduce or eliminate unfunded mandates, local units of government would be able to operate in a much more efficient manner and reduce the real estate tax burden upon property owners. I recommend a gradual repeal of the commercial statewide property tax and an immediate repeal of the automatic annual inflator on this tax. Through the use of new technology, government agencies would be able to eliminate unnecessary duplication by sharing information and services. Gov. Dayton is interested in tax reform. What is your opinion of his proposal and what is the ideal plan to reform taxes in Minnesota? I am not aware that Gov. Dayton is interested in tax reform other than to raise income and corporate taxes. There is no ideal plan, but some ideas would be: Repeal the commercial state wide property tax and automatic inflator mentioned above, adopt federal tax conformity to prevent the marriage penalty, phase in an upfront exemption from sales tax for capital equipment purchases and provide for R & D and angel tax credits to businesses, all of which were vetoed by the governor. Yet again, Minnesota is facing another biennial budget deficit. How would you prevent ongoing budget deficits? Will we have a budget deficit in the upcoming biennium? Revenue is currently coming in at a higher than anticipated rate so we will only have a deficit if the legislature does not fully fund the requests from state agencies. Only in government is the refusal to fully fund all of the future wants of state agencies a deficit. That will be accomplished by tax and regulatory reform and stop spending

more money than we have. How would you rate the performance of the Legislature in the past few years and how would you make it better? Only in government where people have no right of input is there absence of controversy. Our legislature acts in a bipartisan manner on about 98 percent of legislation. We disagree sharply on certain issues. The degree of partisanship is a cyclical historical norm for all republican forms of democracy. Ours is no different. Voters are considering two constitutional amendments supported and opposed primarily along party lines. Why should voters support amendments to the state constitution that are arguably so divisive? In Minnesota, only a marriage between a man and a woman is legal. This amendment will not change that law in any way except to prevent activist judges from again declaring that law unconstitutional. The U.S. Supreme Court ruled voter fraud is a matter of historical fact. States have an interest in reducing fraud. What has been the statewide impact of the legislature’s inability or unwillingness to raise taxes and how would you manage that impact. Overall, has the inability or unwillingness to raise taxes been good for Minnesota (and why)? We pay several different kinds of taxes to different levels of government. I’d guess in total we already pay about 50 percent of our income to the government. At what point do we begin to look at the everincreasing size of government, the necessity of the regulations imposed by the government on our businesses and our willingness to fund it. It feels more and more like we work for the government than it works for us.

House District 18B The new House of Representatives District covers much of Sibley County. Rep. Glenn Gruenhagen, R-Glencoe, is challenged by DFLer Logan Campa of Hutchinson.

Rep. Glenn Gruenhagen

Why are you seeking election to Minnesota House and what separates you from your opponent? State government is growing at unsustainable rates. My business and economic experience and 16 years on the GSL School Board equip me to bring reforms to St. Paul. I am endorsed by MCCL, NRA, NFIB. My opponent is endorsed by government unions. If elected what are your priorities and how will you accomplish them? Healthcare reform: In spite of the Supreme Court ruling on Obamacare, states can still pass true healthcare reform. I have recently written a book titled “Healthcare in Crisis, Is the Government the Solution or the Problem?” Reforms include allowing the sale of health insurance across state lines, making it portable and tax deductible.

cies, in particular the MPCA and DNR. We desperately need to reform these agencies in a way that protects our environment and work with the private sector. Equalizing funding per pupil unit for rural school districts. Reforming and reducing our commercial and residential property taxes. Governor Dayton is interested in tax reform. What is your opinion of his proposal and what is the ideal plan to reform taxes in Minnesota? Although the governor has stated that he is interested in tax reform, to date I have not seen a detailed plan. I have been a long time advocate for completely reforming our income and property tax code, which are some of the most complex and difficult to administer in the nation. Whatever reforms are adopted, they need to be simple and treat all property owners and citizens equally. Two immediate reforms that need to be addressed are the repeal of the statewide commercial property tax that hurts our small business owners and closing special loopholes for corporations and wealthy individuals. Yet again, Minnesota is facing another biennial budget deficit. How would you prevent ongoing budget deficits? In the last biennium, our state government was projected to grow by over 20 percent, an unsustainable rate. The Republicans reduced this projected spending to under 10 percent. Generally, programs were not cut. Eliminating waste and duplication reduced their projected rate of growth. The state budget still increased spending by $2 billion. Projected revenues for the next biennium are an additional $2 billion. This should be more than enough to fund our priorities. How would you rate the performance of the legislature in the past few years and how would you make it better? Ultimately it is the voters that will grade us in the upcoming election, not elected officials. However, Republicans did keep their promise to balance the state budget deficit of $5.1 billion without a tax increase, which gave us a projected $2 billion surplus in the upcoming biennium. Voters are considering two amendments supported and opposed primarily along party lines. Why should voters support amendments to the state constitution that are arguably so divisive? If activist judges redefine marriage, there will be divisive ramifications to our school curriculums and parental rights regarding what children are taught. In states where marriage has been redefined, religious freedoms have been infringed upon. The Voter ID amendment will build integrity into our elections and save millions in recount costs. What has been the statewide impact of the legislature’s inability or unwillingness to raise taxes and how would you manage that impact? Overall, has the inability or unwillingness to raise taxes been good for Minnesota and why? Our farms and businesses have to compete nationally and globally. High taxes and regulations are damaging our private sector’s ability to compete in these markets. Businesses are choosing to leave or expand elsewhere, taking their jobs with them. Seventy-seven million baby boomers are retiring and starting to draw on their benefits. Reforming government to live within its means is an absolute necessity if we want our private sector to prosper and create jobs.

Logan Campa

Why are you seeking election to Minnesota House and what separates you from your opponent? I was working 60-plus hours a week at 3M when our state shut down and borrowed $2.4 billion from our schools. This is inexcusable so that is why I am running. If elected, what are your priorities and (be specific) how will you accomplish them? My top priority is to repay our schools responsibly. The incumbent voted to raid our reserves to repay the schools which would have left little money to help northern Minnesota with flood recovery efforts. One way we can solve this is through tax reform. Quite frankly, our system is out of date, and gives credits and cuts to areas that don’t need it and don’t help the economy. This is something both sides want to do, but is unwilling to work with the other to actually accomplish it. Gov. Dayton is interested in tax reform. What is your opinion of his proposal and what is the ideal plan to reform taxes in Minnesota? I support him in reforming our tax code, but I disagreed with a creation of a new bracket. We are in need of a reform to ensure a 21st Century tax system. We must prioritize and stop giving money to groups that don’t need it. What is interesting is that the “Economist” recently published an expose on the need for tax reform in America, for the exact reasons I stated. The publication felt without reforming the system, we won’t be able to put money into infrastructure and education. If a free-marketed orientated organization states this, perhaps we need to listen. Yet again, Minnesota is facing another biennial budget deficit.

How would you prevent ongoing budget deficits? First, some spending reforms need to be enacted to ensure we don’t have redundancies. We need to streamline red tape and regulations, which will save costs. Ultimately, we need the tax reform that we have been talking about 10 years, but it goes nowhere. I am more than willing to roll up my sleeves and go through our code to fix it. I have done something similar and am willing to do it again. How would you rate the performance of the Legislature in the past few years and how would you make it better? I give it an ‘F.’ It seems that regardless of who is in charge, they continue to have party-line votes on every budget related issue. They borrow money from the schools and they hurt Greater Minnesota. We need something better, and it doesn’t help us to continue to elect the same people saying the same things. Voters are considering two constitutional amendments supported and opposed primarily along party lines. Why should voters support amendments to the state constitution that are arguably so divisive? I oppose Voter ID. We don’t have all the information or details on what it will do, requirements, or cost. I support the language of the marriage amendment. It is a waste of government time and money. We already have laws on the book supporting the amendment. It’s a perfect example of redundancy in government. What has been the statewide impact of the legislature’s inability or unwillingness to raise taxes and how would you manage that impact? Overall, has the inability or unwillingness to raise taxes been good for Minnesota (and why)? (75 words) The statewide impact is $2.4 billion was borrowed from schools, which includes $26.1 million from schools in District 18B. Now, I want to see taxes lowered. It’s impossible to achieve meaningful tax reform and close loopholes to update our system when closing loopholes is considered a tax increase. Closing loopholes is making sure my father who has spent 30 years at 3M isn’t paying more than my uncle, a vice-CEO of a Twin Cities corporation.

Home Repair and Grant Program With colder weather upon us, USDA Rural Development is gearing up to help local homeowners finance home improvements through low-interest loans and grants. “Now is a good time for homeowners to evaluate the need for necessary repairs or replacement of items such as a roof, electrical, plumbing and siding,” said Carol Horstman, Area Specialist in Rural Development’s Faribault office. “Energy efficiency improvements through replacing windows and insulation also qualify. Funds can also be used to replace a furnace, sanitary disposal system and to make homes handicap accessible.” Horstman said applicants must own and occupy the home, and their income may not exceed guidelines established by county and household size. Income limits vary by county and average $24,700 for a one-person household and $28,250 for twoperson household in Southeastern Minnesota. Income limits increase for larger-sized house-

holds. Horstman recommends checking with the local USDA Rural Development office for income limits in your county. Applicants must also have an acceptable credit history, show repayment ability, be unable to afford a conventional loan and live in a community with a population of 20,000 or fewer. The maximum repair loan is $20,000, repayable over 20 years with a 1 percent interest rate. Grants are limited to elderly homeowners over the age of 62, and can only be used to remove health or safety hazards or remodel dwellings to make them accessible to household members with disabilities. The maximum grant is $7,500. For assistance in the following counties: Scott, Blue Earth, Dakota, Dodge, Faribault, Fillmore, Freeborn, Goodhue, Houston, Le Sueur, Mower, Olmsted, Rice, Steele, Wabasha, Waseca and Winona, contact the USDA, Rural Development office at 1408 21st Ave NW #3, Austin, MN 55912.

House District 55B

Senate District 55 The newly-created Senate District in Scott County north of Belle Plaine has two newcomers seeking the office, Republican Eric Pratt of Prior Lake and DFLer Kathy Busch of Shakopee. Pratt decided not to submit responses to the questionnaire.

Kathy Busch

Why are you seeking election to Minnesota Senate and what separates you from your opponent? The inability of legislators to set aside partisan politics is unacceptable. My moderate stance is urgently needed in the legislature, and I believe in line with the majority of District citizens. My experience in leadership roles is broad and extensive. If elected, what are your priorities and (be specific) how will you accomplish them? The creation of additional living-wage jobs is my top priority. I want to see incentives that would attract new businesses and encourage companies to remain in Minnesota, programs that train our workforce, and an emphasis on hiring veterans. Full and stable funding for public education is also a priority of mine; school districts must be repaid the more than $2 billion taken from our schools to falsely balance the state budget. Property tax relief is critical for both homeowners and businesses. The Market Value Credit must be restored to reverse huge property tax increases. Gov. Dayton is interested in tax reform. What is your opin-

ion of his proposal and what is the ideal plan to reform taxes in Minnesota? Commissioner of Revenue Myron Frans has conducted a statewide tour, talking to business leaders, elected officials, tax experts, and general public regarding our tax system. These findings will be presented during the 2013 legislative session. This system of gathering information will provide a basis for tax reform in Minnesota. I agree with Gov. Dayton’s viewpoint that property taxes are regressive, and we should shift toward sales and income taxes, and move to close loopholes in exchange for lowering the state’s high top corporate tax rate. The tax code needs to be as simple, fair, and equitable as possible. Yet again, Minnesota is facing another biennial budget deficit. How would you prevent ongoing budget deficits? The legislature must work to reduce expenditures and cut out wasteful spending. The budget process comes down to prioritization; not all wants can be funded. Legislators must work across the aisle to determine the essential expenditures. Raising revenue may need to be considered as an option, but only after an attempt to reduce expenditures. How would you rate the performance of the Legislature in the past few years and how would you make it better? Polarization at the capitol, due to extreme viewpoints, prevents decisions being made in

the best interest of the majority of Minnesotans. The state shutdown in the summer of 2011 impacted many in a negative manner, and was unnecessary. I would work with others for the greater good. Voters are considering two constitutional amendments supported and opposed primarily along party lines. Why should voters support amendments to the state constitution that are arguably so divisive? Our constitution embodies the fundamental principles of our state, prescribes the powers and duties of the state, and guarantees our rights. Amendments should be as rare as possible and should protect rights not limit them. Voters shouldn’t support such divisive amendments. What has been the statewide impact of the legislature’s inability or unwillingness to raise taxes and how would you manage that impact. Overall, has the inability or unwillingness to raise taxes been good for Minnesota (and why)? Certain services are necessary, even when the state government’s budget does not support them. The result is financial responsibility for those services shifts to local government, resulting in increased local taxes, more user fees, etc. We have seen less support for our infrastructure, and our public educational system. At times, local governmental entities must borrow money to support these services, deferring action and costs to citizens in the future.

The newly-created house district is an open seat sought by Tony Albright, a Republican from Prior Lake, and Travis Burton, a DFLer from Jordan.

Tony Albright

by the folks who first worked to earn the paycheck that is then taxed to fund the services provided by the State. I find the legislatures’ actions to be very prudent in making sure the best interests of every citizen were protected during one of the worst economic downturns in recent memory.

Travis Burton

Why are you seeking election to Minnesota Senate and what separates you from your opponent? I share the values with Scott County residents that believe in citizen government that invests in new opportunities and defends freedom, where personal responsibility, hard work and generosity go hand in hand with compassion for strong local communities. If elected, what are your priorities and (be specific) how will you accomplish them? We need to get back to where local governments have the authority to make the decisions that impact their residents as opposed to the state dictating a one-size-fits-all approach to government services, combing that with a requirement that if the state mandates it then the state pays for it. We need to reform the way we tax at the state level. We need to be reminded of the growth opportunities lost by the continuing burden placed on our local businesses and business-owners who must deal with the multi-layered web of regulatory and compliance procedures. Gov. Dayton is interested in tax reform. What is your opinion of his proposal and what is the ideal plan to reform taxes in Minnesota? We don’t have a revenue problem, we have a spending problem. We need to move away from taxing wealth and success, which is a disincentive, and consider a tax structure that is streamlined to encourage growth of jobs and the well being of families. We must improve the transparency of our property tax systems by moving away from the current tax capacity system and consider using a mile rate model, as much of the rest of the country already utilizes. This would make us more competitive to businesses and generate growth and job creation. Yet again, Minnesota is facing another biennial budget deficit. How would you prevent ongoing budget deficits? The state needs to recognize where revenue comes from, the taxpayer. Just as every citizen does, we must live with in our means, and be vigorous in removing wasteful spending, redundant programs, and raise the expected performance of every program to justify all funding received. How would you rate the performance of the Legislature in the past few years and how would you make it better? The legislative process includes the house, senate and the governor. Many bi-partisan bills passed by the house and senate and vetoed would have made great reforms to promote families, business and growth in this state. If the voters want a more cohesive body in the legislative body and the governor’s office, they will speak with their votes. Voters are considering two constitutional amendments supported and opposed primarily along party lines. Why should voters support amendments to the state constitution that are arguably so divisive? Whether voters agree or disagree with the merits of either amendment, they do agree with the right to decide on them by using their vote. The very essence of each amendment and the divisiveness they have created necessitates that the people decide their fate. What has been the statewide impact of the legislature’s inability or unwillingness to raise taxes and how would you manage that impact. Overall, has the inability or unwillingness to raise taxes been good for Minnesota (and why)? First and foremost, they are called to act as stewards over the resources provided to them

Why are you seeking election to Minnesota Senate and what separates you from your opponent? I want to end the partisan divide putting Minnesota into a state of perpetual gridlock, advance an ERA amendment, and repay the money taken from the schools; additionally, my background gives me a thorough understanding of business and government management. If elected, what are your priorities and (be specific) how will you accomplish them? Repay the $2.4 billion borrowed from the schools: A onetime tax at an average of $453 similar to Minnesota’s current progressive income tax to repay what we owe Minnesota’s children. An Equal Rights Amendment for Minnesota’s Constitution: An amendment that guarantees equal rights in the eyes of the law for every citizen regardless of physical or mental ability, age, race, gender, or religious belief system. Reform Minnesota’s tax code: Create an effective tax rate that is progressive, so the wealthiest citizens in Minnesota no longer pay a lower percentage of their earnings than those who are economically less fortunate. Gov. Dayton is interested in tax reform. What is your opinion of his proposal and what is the ideal plan to reform taxes in Minnesota? An examination of the effective tax rate in Minnesota shows that the wealthiest citizens in Minnesota are paying a lower percentage of their total income then hard working Minnesotans in the middle-class. This is a problem that must change if Minnesota is to remain competitive in the nation as well as the world. Taxing the rich is not the solution; however, taxing the middle-class more than the rich is a problem. Working across the aisle, we can find solutions that create a fair revenue system for Minnesotans, so every citizen in Minnesota has the opportunity to become wealthy. Yet again, Minnesota is facing another biennial budget deficit. How would you prevent ongoing budget deficits? First, reexamine every organization in Minnesota to find new efficiencies, cut existing waste, and eliminate programs deemed non-essential during the shutdown to save money. Second, reform the tax code in a comprehensive manner to help maintain current revenue levels and make the effective tax rate for the wealthiest Minnesotans

PLEASE RECYCLE

greater than the middle-class. Third, work with business leaders to create new manufacturing jobs in every sector that increases Minnesota’s exports to expand the tax base. How would you rate the performance of the Legislature in the past few years and how would you make it better? The main problem facing the legislature is the unwillingness of legislators to represent their entire district as opposed to those responsible for putting them into power. I will make a concerted effort to break bread with legislators from any ideology to find what we can agree upon to improve Minnesota. Voters are considering two constitutional amendments supported and opposed primarily along party lines. Why should voters support amendments to the state constitution that are arguably so divisive? Voters should not support amendments that are so divisive and should vote - No. Constitutional amendments are for to enacting laws that the vast majority of people agree to as opposed to partisan issues. I believe, constitutional amendments should be for laws that protect every citizen’s civil rights. What has been the statewide impact of the legislature’s inability or unwillingness to raise taxes and how would you manage that impact. Overall, has the inability or unwillingness to raise taxes been good for Minnesota (and why)? The unwillingness of the legislature to raise taxes has led to an increase in, perhaps, the most regressive tax– the property tax. Failing to restructure the tax code and increase the effective tax rate that the wealthiest Minnesotans are paying is forcing local governments to raise Property Taxes to maintain services. Consequently, the legislature is reducing the ability of Minnesotans to realize the American dream by increasing the taxes on people with less expendable income.

House District 47A Voters will have their choice of Rep. Ernie Leidiger, R-Mayer, or DFLer Keith Pickering of Watertown. The District includes southern Carver County.

Rep. Ernie Leidiger

the inability or unwillingness to raise taxes been good for Minnesota (and why)? Taxpayers are already overburdened by taxes with rates that are some of the highest in the nation and the world. This makes the state uncompetitive when trying to attract new businesses here to provide jobs. It’s why the state’s Fortune 500 companies haven’t grown here. Minnesota should be a made a magnet for business with business friendly policies.

Keith Pickering

Why are you seeking re-election to Minnesota House and what separates you from your opponent? I’m seeking re-election to continue mainstream conservative principles in state government that will produce good economic growth and jobs by halting excessive taxing, spending, and over-regulation. If elected, what are your priorities and (be specific) how will you accomplish them? Reduce property taxes and regulations on small businesses to promote job growth. Streamline and reduce redundancy in government processes and operations such as project screening and applied programs. We must budget differently by moving toward zero-based budgeting and routine program reviews verses just increasing spending by a few percentage points over the previous budget. This means we need to start the process by first asking if a program is needed, then build the budget based on needs. Gov. Dayton is interested in tax reform. What is your opinion of his proposal and what is the ideal plan to reform taxes in Minnesota? I’m interested in tax reform and will work with the governor to produce a more fair tax policy. Yet again, Minnesota is facing another biennial budget deficit. How would you prevent ongoing budget deficits? Spend only what is projected to be received. How would you rate the performance of the Legislature in the past few years and how would you make it better? The legislature gets an A, for balancing the budget leading to a surplus of over a billion dollars, putting forth pro-business legislation, and sending to the people amendments that are important to Minnesotans. There is certainly room for improvement. The governor, who has vetoed all common-sense legislation, gets an F. He wants to raise job-killing taxes, rejects changes to legislation that spurs job growth, and plays politics by rejecting legislation to pay back the school shift. Voters are considering two constitutional amendments supported and opposed primarily along party lines. Why should voters support amendments to the state constitution that are arguably so divisive? Both amendments are vastly supported by the majority of Minnesotans. A small vocal minority of the people opposes them. They will both pass with a yes vote. What has been the statewide impact of the legislature’s inability or unwillingness to raise taxes and how would you manage that impact. Overall, has

Why are you seeking election to Minnesota House and what separates you from your opponent? I’m concerned about the recent rise in property taxes we’ve seen in the last year. That happened because the legislature cut aid to local governments and schools, which then raise property taxes to make up the difference. If elected, what are your priorities and (be specific) how will you accomplish them? Property tax relief is my highest priority. That can only be accomplished by restoring aid to local governments and schools. It’s clear our budgeting and tax structure needs a complete overhaul, and that starts by recognizing there is no free lunch. Last year, the Republicancontrolled legislature tried to create a free lunch by shifting over $2 billion of school aid off budget. Such shifts have happened before, but until this year those shifts had always been paid for in the current budget, as required by the Minnesota constitution. Last year that shift was unfunded, which makes the shift unconstitutional in my view. Gov. Dayton is interested in tax reform. What is your opinion of his proposal and what is the ideal plan to reform taxes in Minnesota? Property taxes can only go down by increasing the income tax – but income tax is better from a business standpoint. If a business’s property tax is too high, it is stuck with no way to avoid that. But if a business’s income tax is too high, it can avoid that tax by shedding income, which they do by hiring more people, buying more plant and equipment, or expanding hours. We want businesses to avoid the income tax, because great things happen when they do. Yet again, Minnesota is facing another biennial budget deficit. How would you prevent ongoing budget deficits? Again, this goes back to having a tax structure weighted more toward income tax, and the ability to pay, and less toward property tax. The wealthy have done remarkably well during the past 10 years as we in the middle class has been struggling to keep our heads above water. They can afford to pay more, and should. How would you rate the per-

formance of the Legislature in the past few years and how would you make it better? F. While jobs, the economy and tax issues languished, the legislature first pushed divisive social-issue amendments to the constitution. The unfunded school revenue shift left the state owing school districts over $2 billion. Cuts to local governments aid worsened the problem. Shutting down state government lowers it to F. Voters are considering two constitutional amendments supported and opposed primarily along party lines. Why should voters support amendments to the state constitution that are arguably so divisive? They shouldn’t. The state constitution should be reserved only for those things that cannot be handled by regular law. Neither of these proposed amendments meets that basic test. What has been the statewide impact of the legislature’s inability or unwillingness to raise taxes and how would you manage that impact. Overall, has the inability or unwillingness to raise taxes been good for Minnesota (and why)? Over the past 10 years, the size of state government has shrunk by about 5 percent in real (inflation-adjusted) dollars per capita. Forty years ago, a middle-class family could afford to send its kids to a state university without taking out a second mortgage or piling the same debt onto their kids’ backs. In the long term, this is terrible for the middle class, and it’s all done in the name of this year’s short-term gain.

Men Charged With Possessing Ingredients to Make Meth

Two men – one from Le Center, the other Redwood Falls, Minn. – arrested in Belle Plaine are charged with possession of the precursors to manufacturer methamphetamine. William Donald Buchan of Le Center and Marcus Wayne Leith of Redwood Falls, Minn., are both charged with felonylevel possession of methamphetamine precursors with intent to manufacture the drug. Both are summoned to appear in Scott County District Court Nov. 16. The two men were arrested Sept. 7, about 9:20 p.m., on the 300 block of South Willow Street during the investigation of an alleged hit-and-run crash the previous day involving Buchan’s white Lincoln Town Car. Leith was arrested at the site on an outstanding warrant, according to the criminal complaint. During the investigation, police found damage to the rightfront headlight and marker light consistent with the pieces

of lighting found at the crash scene the previous day. As Leith got out of the car, police detected the smell of marijuana from inside the vehicle. They found a white Tylenol bottle inside the vehicle. It contained, the complaint alleges, “a green leafy substance which smell of marijuana and little red pills.” He denied the pill bottle or its contents belonged to him. Buchan, 30, told police he was moving from Montgomery to Mankato the day before and was driving a moving truck. He told police Leith, 35, saw the squad car behind them when the pair were driving north on Meridian Street and told him to pull into a driveway on Willow Street. Buchan suspected Leith or his girlfriend was driving the vehicle when it crashed into another vehicle and that he believed Leith left the scene of a crash because he did not have a valid license to drive. Leith denied he was driving the Lincoln

Town Car the previous day, the charge states. After the vehicle was impounded and searched, police later determined the 183 little red pills were non-prescription pseudoephedrine in addition to a half-gram of marijuana. The criminal charge says they also found behind the driver’s front seat several containers of toluene, acetone, brake cleaner, fuel system cleaner, fuel system revitalizer, gas line antifreeze, rust remover, undercoat and sound eliminator – all chemicals police say are ingredients used in the manufacturing of methamphetamine. Leith claimed the chemicals belonged to Buchan. The charges denote Buchan’s three prior drug convictions (one in Scott County and two in Le Sueur County) – twice in 2006 for drug possession and once in 2008. Leith has four prior felony drug convictions (two in Carver County and one each in Le Sueur and Blue Earth counties), all in 2006.

deer firearms season opener, the Brainerd State Patrol District is organizing a statewide saturation on Highway 169, on Friday, Nov. 2. Troopers in the Brainerd District will be working cooperatively with other districts, including Mankato, West Metro St. Cloud and Virginia, to conduct high-visibility patrols across one of Minnesota’s main corridors during the high-traffic deer hunting opener. Troopers will be partnering with county and municipal agencies in this effort. According to Lt. Joe Dwyer, “troopers already scheduled to work in their respective district will plan accordingly to spend their unobligated time patrolling Highway 169. The premise

of enforcement lies in the hope that motorists traversing the state from one end to the other may have the opportunity to see our hard-working troopers and other agency officers at more than one location along the way.” According to Sgt. Curt Mowers, public information officer, “This is just one of the many high visibility projects that have become more commonly used as an enforcement tool by troopers and other agencies in the effort to help save lives.” Sgt. Mowers also reminds motorists that, “It is very critical for all motorists to slow down, buckle up, driver sober and pay attention at all times and for everyone to take personal responsibility for their own actions behind the wheel.”

public or private land? If you are hunting public land, plan that there will be other hunters in the area,” said Hammer. “Scouting for deer signs and signs of other hunters is important to help determine a set-up location during the early morning hours before the season starts.” Hammer noted knowing the safe zone of fire is especially important. “Properly identifying your target and who or what’s beyond the target is a basic rule of hunting safety,” Hammer said. “Hunters must always be aware of surroundings and never shoot at a sound, which could be from another hunter rather than a deer.” Hammer urges hunters to check elevated stands for proper tree attachment before hunting. He also recommends using a fall arrest system when leaving the ground, and using a haul line to raise and lower unloaded firearms. “Falls from elevated stands are a leading cause of injury for deer hunters,” said Hammer. Ground blinds are becoming increasingly popular with deer hunters because they offer protection from the wind, rain and snow. Hammer said it’s important to place blaze orange on the outside of such blinds to alert other hunters. Deer drives also present several potential safety problems. “Plan your deer drive around safety,” Hammer said. “Every-

one involved should know the plan and stick to the plan.” Hammer offered other safety reminders: – Treat every firearm as if it is loaded. – Always control the muzzle, keeping it pointed away others and yourself. – Keep fingers outside the trigger guard until you are absolutely sure it’s safe to fire. – Carefully identify your target, ensuring you have a safe backstop before shooting. – Never load or unload firearms around others. – Be sure that the barrel and action are clear of obstructions. – Never climb a tree or jump a ditch with a loaded firearm. – Never pull a firearm toward you by the muzzle. – Always ask permission before entering private land – As a guest of the landowner, act accordingly. – Avoid alcoholic beverages or other mood-altering drugs before or while hunting. – Wear plenty of blaze orange; the minimum requirement is a blaze orange cap and blaze orange above the waist. Hunters should refer to the big game hunting section of the 2012 Minnesota Hunting and Trapping Regulations Handbook for detailed information concerning deer hunting regulations or call the DNR Information Center at 651-296-6157 or toll-free 888-646-6367 for more information.

Meuleners Heading Back to State by Dan Ruud Belle Plaine sophomore Janessa Meuleners will run in her fourth consecutive state cross country meet at St. Olaf College in Northfield this Saturday after placing 14th overall at Thursday’s Section 4A Meet at Battle Creek Regional Park in St. Paul. Only the top 10 finishers automatically qualify to run at state, but because the top two teams, which qualify for state as a team, had multiple runners

place in the top 10, opened up more spots for individual qualifiers. Blake, led by defending individual medalist and junior Clare Flanagan, one of the top two runners in the state, took first place with a team tally of 65. The other state team qualifier was Minnehaha Academy with a score of 84. Belle Plaine finished fifth in the 15-team standings at 141. Meuleners’ time of 15:45 was 54 seconds slower than her

time (14:51) at last year’s section meet on the same course, which earned her second place behind Flanagan. Meet conditions were very cold and raw this time around, but at least the rain and snow showers that fell earlier in the day had ended. As she did in 2011 and basically every Minnesota cross country meet she runs in, Fla-

Tigers Win Playoff Opener by Dan Ruud As expected, the Belle Plaine High School volleyball team, a No. 1 seed, defeated No. 8 seed Holy Family Catholic in the first round of the Section 2AA, North Subsection Tournament in Belle Plaine Thursday night. What wasn’t expected was the fight the 5-21 Fire had in them, especially in the first two sets, one of which was won by the visitors. The final tallies were 27-25, 23-25, 25-15, 25-20 in favor of the Tigers, who improved their overall record to 22-7. “I think this first round of playoffs provided us a good reality check, that no matter how talented our team is, if we don’t bring our full effort to the court each night, we may find ourselves fighting to stay alive,” said Tigers coach Cassie Wolpern. “I have to give credit to Holy Family, who was more talented and relentless than their ranking or season record revealed. They played consistent and smart. We had an unusual high number of errors on our side of the court, which was Belle Plaine’s Kirsten Johnson (No. 13) had 10 kills, 11 digs disappointing after how well we and 35 set assists against Holy Family Catholic Thursday have been playing and practic- night at the BPHS gym. ing the past week. We will get back in the gym and continue to work hard in preparation for Tuesday.” Haley Fogarty slammed 21 kills for Belle Plaine, followed by Mariena Hayden (11), Kirsten Johnson (10), Jordan Going (9), Marykay Nasby (7) and Amara Meyer (2). Elizabeth Johnson came through with six ace serves for the Tigers. Danielle Taylor and Hayden both added two and Fogarty one. Fogarty had 20 digs, while Johnson and Claire Otto had 10 and 11, respectively. Hayden chipped in nine. Johnson and Devin Lehman had 35 and 17 set assists, respectively. Belle Plaine was scheduled to travel to New Prague to take on No. 4 seed Jordan (11-17) Tuesday night after this edition of the Herald went to press. The winner of that match will take on last night’s winner between

by Dan Ruud It was a long bus ride there and a seemingly longer one home for the Belle Plaine High School football team as the No. 5 seed Tigers lost to the No. 4 seed Fairmont Cardinals 48-26 in the first round of the Section 3AAA Tournament in Fairmont last Tuesday night. The result spelled the end of Belle Plaine’s hope, at least for another year, of returning to the state football tournament for the first time in almost two decades. The Tigers appeared to have the Cardinals, who they had beaten twice in the postseason in recent years, right where they wanted them early. Belle Plaine scored on the first possession of the game via a 76yard touchdown play from quarterback Luke Narveson to Nick Eliason with 7:54 left in the first quarter. Derek Dahlke booted the extra point and the Tigers, winners of two-straight games, were ahead 7-0. That would be their only lead of the night and a short-lived one at that as the Cardinals’ Brandon Martin took over the game. Martin, a 5-10, 220pound power running back, scored all four of Fairmont’s first-half touchdowns on runs of 8, 43, 5 and 3 yards. Fairmont added a successful twopoint conversion on each of those TDs to make it 32-7 with 6:30 left in the first half. Dahlke was the recipient of a 17-yard TD toss from Narveson before the end of the half to make it 32-13 at intermission. The Tigers ate into the Cardinal lead some more early in the third quarter. After forcing Fairmont to punt following a three-and-out to begin the half, Eliason scored his second touchdown of the game on a 36-yard pass play from Narveson. Dahlke’s extra-point kick try was good, making it 32-20 with almost nine minutes left in the third quarter. A major comeback in the making? The Cardinals quickly answered that question as Martin scored his fifth touchdown of the game on a 2-yard burst just a few minutes later. Again, they tacked on the two-point conversion to make it 40-20. The next touchdown, followed by a successful two-point conversion, of course, came early in the fourth quarter when Fairmont quarterback Lukas Hested hooked up with Luke Becker on a 13-yard TD play, giving the Cardinals a 28-point cushion. The Tigers scored on a 1-yard touchdown run by sophomore Ben Wagner in the closing moments to make the final 48-26. Belle Plaine had 382 yards of offense (250 passing and 132 rushing). Fairmont had 411 yards (262 passing and 149 rushing). Narveson, a freshman, completed 13 of 29 passes for 250 yards and two TDs. Eliason had just two catches but they went for 113 yards and two TDs. Dahlke had four grabs for 50 yards. Dillon Haefner was the Tigers’ leading rusher with 61 yards on 16 carries. Christopher Holmbeck added 10 carries for 38 yards. Mitchell Nelson and Jacob

Belle Plaine’s Derek Dahlke (No. 4) almost came down with this pass but it was knocked away at the last instant by a Fairmont defender last Tuesday night in Fairmont. Nowak both had a team-high eight tackles for the Tigers. Martin finished the game with 19 rushes for 139 yards and five TDs. Hested was 13-of-18 passing for 232 yards. Reserve quarterback Spencer Chirpich completed all three of the passes he threw late in the game, good for 30 yards. There were 10 seniors playing their final high school football game for Belle Plaine, which finished the season 3-6. Included were Eliason, Zack Juaire, Jayden Howie, Jordan Johnson, Brandon Boateng, Nathan Phillips, Greyson Getty, Kyle O’Brien, Chris Neubauer and Cameron Klehr. 2012 BPHS Football Results Aug. 30 vs. N.
