School Board Weighing Plan for Co-op Adaptive Sports Teams Bob Denny Pitches Plan for Permanent Restrooms at Football-Track Complex This winter and next spring, Belle Plaine High School students could have teammates from New Prague, Jordan and Tri-City United schools in adaptive floor hockey and softball. The Belle Plaine School Board is weighing potential participation by special education students on adaptive teams this winter and spring. The board informally gave the go-ahead at Monday’s board workshop for more study on the issue and indicated support to bring it to the Oct. 28 school board meeting for formal consideration. Superintendent Kelly Smith said there are about five or six junior and senior high school students who are both interested

and qualified for the proposed cooperative teams. He said the district has fielded some requests from potentially interested parents. New Prague has been interested in a cooperative participation agreement with Belle Plaine for a few years, but only if BPHS was able to commit students. Having an agreement with New Prague but no participation from BPHS students would push New Prague into Class AA for competition against larger suburban schools. “I think it’s a win-win because New Prague has been struggling (for participants),” Smith said. Belle Plaine’s participation in the two programs is not included in the budget. The district’s informal estimate for transporting participants during the winter and spring seasons is $7,625. It would be cut in half if sharing transportation costs with Jordan. Student would pay an activity fee -- $375 for floor hockey $370 for softball -- like other students, Smith told the board.

Other issues could include staffing for special education students who have a dedicated para-professional working with them during the day. Smith said the opportunity for students to participate in a team setting justifies consideration of the cooperative effort with TriCity United, New Prague and Jordan.

A Permanent Facility

The board heard an initial proposal for a permanent restroom and ticket facility at the football-track complex. Smith told the board Bob Denny, a community member and member of the Lions Club, is proposing raising the money to build a permanent facility that would replace the rented PortaPotties at the football facility. Denny recalls listening to people carp about long lines After finishing in 99th place in Saturday’s half-marathon, Jeff Miller of Blaine got on bended to use temporary facilities at knee and asked his girlfriend, Amy Hauck, also of Blaine to marry him. She said yes. the Tigers’ home game against Jordan. “There were six Porta-Potties

Bill and Dawn Halverson and their daughters Leilani (left) and Shayna are looking forward to Saturday’s chili cook-off at Oak Crest Elementary School. Members of the Wizardz, the girls participate in Special Olympics. They both participate in volleyball, swimming, bocce ball and bowling.

Cook-Off Makes State Events Memorable for B.P.’s ‘Wizardz’ Shayna and Leilani Halverson love chili and competing with their friends in Special Olympics events. Saturday at Oak Crest Elementary School, chili and Special Olympics will be inseparable. The girls – the adopted daughters of Dawn and Bill Halverson of Belle Plaine – are members of the Wizardz, a Special Olympics team that also includes athletes from Jordan, New Prague and the surrounding area. Mom helps coach and dad is a team volunteer. The Wizardz and their families will benefit from the talents of chefs competing in the Second Annual Special Olympics Chili Cook-Off Saturday (Oct. 19, 4-7:30 p.m.), at Oak Crest Elementary School in Belle Plaine. The benefit chili cook-off is a fund-raiser to help fund the Wizardz’s lodging and expenses at spring, summer and fall state Special Olympics competitions. Both girls – students at Belle

Plaine Junior High School – participate in volleyball, swimming, bocce ball and bowling. They were members of the state championship Special Olympics volleyball team last summer. “Our athletes are always together practicing and practicing and practicing,” Dawn Halverson said. The fund-raiser is especially helpful to families with multiple athletes participating in different activities. “Being able to spend time together at the hotel gives them some time for fun activities. They have a good time and nobody’s there to judge them.” The benefit chili cook-off is the brainchild of Scott Parks, a chef from Jordan. He came up with the idea last year. Parks had little trouble drawing volunteers from chefs in the Minneapolis Chapter of the American Culinary Federation who want to lend their talents to a good cause. “The support we’ve received

has been almost overwhelm-

Overnight Rain One of Month’s Top Soakers

If this is a dry time of the year, Monday night’s rainfall did little to dry out fields and lawns. Belle Plaine and the surrounding area received 1¼ inches Monday evening into Tuesday with additional rainfall expected later this week. The overnight rainfall bumped October’s total precipitation to 2.88 inches, said Ewald Gruetzmacher, a Belle Plaine Township farmer. Though some are talking about a killing frost Thursday, the National Weather Service’s forecast says tomorrow’s low in Belle Plaine will be 38 degrees and Friday’s low is predicted at 35 degrees.

Scenic Byway Races Feature Four New Winners and One Marriage Proposal Dan Ruud Most runners in Saturday’s third annual Scenic Byway Half-Marathon in Belle Plaine had no expectations of winning the race. Many just wanted to finish it in the best time possible and enjoy some October foliage along the way. Jeff Miller of Blaine was one of those runners, but he had a lot more on his mind than what his time would be. Every stride he took along the scenic route made him that much closer to the finish line. Once there, he would go down on bended knee to the song “Marry You” by Bruno Mars, which Doug Krohn of Anderson Race Management had ready to play on the speakers as Miller crossed the finish line carrying a bouquet of roses, which a friend had ready to hand to him just blocks from the finish line. “I had this planned for about three months,” said Miller, referring to his marriage proposal to a stunned but happy Amy Hauck, also of Blaine. And the answer was YES. Although they have been dating for only about nine months, Miller had enough confidence that Hauck would say “yes” to where he had no fear of popping the question in public. Miller, who finished the halfmarathon in 99th place with a time of 2:15:10, is the director of academics at Pine Technical College in Pine City. Hauck is an accounting assistant at Renewable Products Marketing Group in Shakopee. Although no wedding date was set at the finish line, Miller did jokingly say “January in Acapulco.” At least the thought is out there. Meanwhile, the first male and female to cross the finish line in Saturday’s 5K race have been married for over 15 years. Kevin Weisner, 52, of Minneapolis, was the overall winner in a time of 19:42. Wife Tammy (Domeier) was fourth overall in 21:30. The next female to cross the finish line was Anna Sexton, also of Minneapolis, in a sixthbest overall time of 22:28. The second-place male finisher was Joseph Murphy of Henderson in 21:05, followed

Jeff Miller of Blaine finished Saturday’s half-marathon carrying a bouquet of roses, which he presented to his girlfriend Amy Hauck, who accepted his marriage proposal at the finish line.

Look Out Vegas, Ryan Dungey and Siegle Family Are on Their Way

Lions Award Recipients

The Belle Plaine Lions Club presented appreciation awards at the Borough Bowl banquet room last Tuesday night. The awards are presented to individuals for their community involvement and work with the Lions Club. The Melvin Jones, Helen Keller Sight and Hearing Foundation awards are at-large awards given to deserving individuals for their work in helping people in need. Pictured are those who received one of those awards. From left, are Pat Krings, Tim Halloran, Ted Weber, Bob Denny, Nancy Pint, Pat Ollhoff, Maria Friendshuh, Mark Koepp and Josh Friendshuh.

Sorry ladies, Ryan Dungey is off the market. That is according to SPEED (The Motors on Fox Blog) – and his fiancee, Lindsay Siegle of Belle Plaine and Dungey himself. Dungey, 23, is a professional motocross racer competing in the AMA Supercross and Motocross championships, where he has won numerous major titles since he was a teenager. He considers Belle Plaine his hometown and Siegle is a 2009 graduate of BPHS. They met several years ago at Annie’s Cafe in Belle Plaine. Earlier this month, Dungey announced on Twitter and Instagram his engagement to Siegle. The news came just days after Team USA – which included Dungey – scored a runnerup finish to Team Belgium at the Motocross of Nations in Teutschenthal, Germany.

Dungey ultimately popped the question while in Barcelona, Spain. “She said YES! #Barcelona,� Dungey’s post said, which was accompanied by a photo of Siegle holding up the ring. Siegle, the daughter of Dave Siegle and Donna Siegle, said

she was not expecting Dungey’s proposal. “I was surprised. I was not expecting it at all,� she said. As part of an engagement celebration of sorts, Siegle said almost all of the Siegle family will be in Las Vegas this weekend. So will Dungey, who is competing in the Monster Energy Cup races there on Saturday. The Siegles plan to leave Thursday and return Sunday. “I’m excited (about the Vegas trip) but a little nervous, too,� Siegle said. “Literally, almost every Siegle is going to be there. It could be like Siegles go wild in Vegas.� Siegle added that getting her grandmother Irene out of the casino may be the biggest challenge. “You can always find grandma at Mystic Lake. Vegas is going to be like heaven for her.�

No Running in the Kitchen

Many members of the Belle Plaine High School cross country teams volunteered their time to work at Friday evening’s spaghetti (and garlic bread) dinner fund-raiser that was held in conjunction with the following day’s third annual Scenic Byway races in Belle Plaine. The event took place just 24 hours after the Belle Plaine girls’ team defended its Minnesota River Conference championship and the Belle Plaine boys moved up to third place. The Tigers also brought home conference championships in both the boys’ and girls’ junior varsity and boys’ and girls’ junior high races.

Carver County

Eyeing State Money to Expand 212 Hoping it qualifies as a business passageway, the Carver County Board is seeking a big slice of a $300 million pie the state will divvy up for road improvements. The county board recently passed a resolution seeking up to $69 million from the Minnesota Department of Transportationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s (Mn/DOT) $300 million â&#x20AC;&#x153;Corridor of Commerceâ&#x20AC;? program. The county wants to expand the 4.6-mile section of two-lane Highway 212 to four lanes between Carver and Cologne, the Chaska Herald recently reported. About 12,000 vehicles use the two-lane section of the eastwest highway each day, a number the county and Mn/DOT expect will increase over time. About 1,800 of those vehicles are heavy trucks carrying goods to market. Commissioner Tim Lynch of Hollywood Township believes the narrow section of highway presents a safety concern as well. He said expanding the roadway is one of Carver Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top priorities. If funding is available, the county will work on acquiring right-of-way during 2014 and begin construction in 2015.

Fire Prevention Poster Contest Winners The Belle Plaine Fire Department Ladies Auxiliary recently held their annual Fire Prevention Poster Contest. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s theme was â&#x20AC;&#x153;Prevent Kitchen Firesâ&#x20AC;? and all students in grades K-5 were invited to participate. Winners in all grade levels were recognized at a reception at the Fire Hall on Oct. 7. The grand prize winner was Faith Miner. Pictured above are all of the winners. They are back row, from left, Aiden Tuchtenhagen, Ava Reed, Lari Ruud, Audra Cruz, Ethan Laing, Sydney Fors, Kadence Bran de Leon, Morgan Glowicki, Johnny Meyer and Faith Miner.

Gaylord and Sibley County reached an agreement over an unpaid water bill generated by users at the county jail over the past 17½ years. But the bill won’t be as big as one might think. The city and county settled on $8,559.53 and not the $18,840 the city originally billed the county for water use. Had sewer been incorporated into the bill, the Sibley County might have been on the hook for over $30,000. The two sides settled with the city paying for water over 17plus years at 8,000 gallons permonth usage rate. The county won’t pay for sewer. The unpaid bill came to light when a meter in the jail not incorporated into the city’s billing system was discovered when the city replaced meters. The county claimed it did not know about the meter installed nearly 20 years ago, the Gaylord Hub

Farmers Market Corner It looks like cool weather in the forecast but the vendors have said they’ll be at the market today, Wednesday, Oct. 16. Denise mentioned this may be her last one and Diane said she’s probably done baking for the season. Terry, Bev, Jan, Charlie, Barb and Roy have all indicated that they’ll continue through the end of October as long as it doesn’t snow. Giant pumpkins are at the market! Come on down and find the one you want. Reasonablypriced and once they’re carved, you could fit a small child inside of one; you know, for pic-

tures. What a great addition to your seasonal decor. There are still a lot of vegetables and fruits to be found. A large variety of apples, tomatoes and peppers along with carrots, green beans, squash and more. The Belle Plaine Farmers Market is held every Wednesday May through October from 3:30-6:30 p.m. at Court Square Park. Vendors of homegrown and/or homemade items are welcome. For more information, contact Lisa Fahey at 952873-5665 or Diane Skelley at 952-873-2467, or like us on Facebook for seasonal updates.

Farm Land Rental Rates to be Topic of Meeting Nov. 6 Landlords, farmers and agribusiness professionals should make plans to attend one of the informative meetings being held across central and southern Minnesota. These free meetings are being provided by the University of Minnesota Extension. Farm land rental rates have never been higher and determining a fair and profitable farm rent agreement is a challenge in today’s economy with recent record corn and soybean prices and record farm land values. A meeting will be held locally on Wednesday, Nov. 6, at 1:30 p.m. at the Scott County Extension Office in Jordan. Negotiating a fair rental agreement that satisfies the land owner and the farmer is a challenge. David Bau, extension educator

in ag business management, will provide several ways; by examples, factsheets and worksheets to determine a fair farm land rental rate for both parties. Topics covered at the meetings will include local historic and projected farmland rental rate trends, current farm land values and sales and a worksheet that will help determine a fair and profitable rental agreement. Input costs for 2014 will be presented along with current 2014 corn and soybean prices. Worksheets will examine 2014 costs and what is affordable rent that a farmer will be able to pay in 2014, the rate of return to the landlord at current market values and examine flexible rental agreements. For more information, call 952-492-5386 or 952-492-4665306.

Each year, the District sells thousands of bare-root seedlings, including a number of choices perfect for buffers along streams, hedges/ privacy screenings, wildlife habitat and rural windbreaks. Sold in bundles of 25, this year’s a long list of trees and shrubs. Call 952-492-5425 or send an e-mail to dhrabe@ co.scott.mn.us if you’d like to receive 2014 tree materials.

Governor Sends Area Attorney, Goggins King, to the Bench A New Prague lawyer and the daughter of a former district court judge, Colleen Goggins King, was recently appointed to the bench in Minnesota’s First Judicial District. Friday, Gov. Mark Dayton appointed Colleen Goggins King to the bench in the same judicial district in which her father, Robert, served for 22 years. Goggins King is an attorney in a New Prague law firm. She was appointed to replace Judge Michael V. Sovis, who retired earlier this year. Judge Goggins will be chambered at Hastings in Dakota County. “Throughout her career, Ms. Colleen Goggins has demonstrated a strong commitment to justice, and to the well-being of her community. I am pleased to appoint Ms. Goggins to serve as district court judge, and I am confident she will serve the people of the First (Judicial) District with distinction,” Day-

defense, civil litigation, family law, estate planning, probate, and conservator/guardianship matters. Previously, she served as a part-time public defender for Scott, Dakota and McLeod counties and was an attorney with McDonough, Wagner & Ho, L.L.P. Goggins King earned her bachelor’s degree from the College of St. Benedict and her law degree at Hamline University School of Law. Goggins King is a founding board member of the New Prague Area Education Foundation, a member of the Rotary Club of New Prague and a volunteer teacher for St. Wenceslaus Church’s Children’s Liturgy. She resides with her family in New Prague. Minnesota’s First Judicial District consists of Scott, Carver, Sibley, Le Sueur, Dakota, Goodhue, and McLeod counties.

We are in the middle of “Teen Read Week”. This week is set aside to encourage our teenage readers to mix in some fun reading with their assigned reading from school. Reading can be fun and we realize that assigned reading may be necessary, but it would be nice to blend in something that you chose to read. We are here to encourage your teenaged readers to do a bit of reading for themselves. The ultimate hope is that it becomes a routine part of their lives. We are going to have special activities running through October 30. Today, October 16 is the birth anniversary of Noah Webton said. ster.

His most famous work is not one of those that you read cover to cover because you just simply cannot put it down. He is, as you may know (or guessed) the Webster famous for compiling Webster’s Dictionary. I am sure that you have found a dictionary to be useful from time to time. It may have been the deciding factor in a heated Scrabble game. Maybe, Mr. Webster’s dictionary just helped you understand something that you had not run into before. The other interesting use of a dictionary is to use it as part of a hobby. Some people make it a hobby or daily ritual to learn the meaning of a word they have never heard or used before.

BELLE PLAINE HERALD, BELLE PLAINE, MINNESOTA

Thirty Years Ago This Week

A Trophy Moose Jim Edblom, left, and Dave Westphal of Belle Plaine showed off their trophy bull moose head in October of 1983. They were half of a four-man hunting team that also included Don Laabs of Belle Plaine and Dewey Barta of New Prague. The moose was shot in northern Minnesota between Hoyt Lakes and Babbitt. Westphal fired the four shots that killed the 1,075-pound bull. It had an antler spread of 47 5/8 inches. Besides its size, also unusual was that fact that it had double-palmed antlers, which are very uncommon in Minnesota moose. They are indicative of a moose that is at its prime age and size. It was an announcement that was expected for some months but finally came from Cooperative Power Association and United Power Association that they had officially abandoned plans to construct the controversial Wilmarth power line between Delano and Mankato. The line would have crossed the Minnesota River near Belle Plaine from Faxon Township to Blakeley Township just west of Belle Plaine coming up through Oldenburg’s ravine. The power line had been vehemently opposed by landowners living along its proposed right-ofway. Opponents of hazardous waste siting in Carver County, MnPOWER, felt they made major gains that week by keeping the Waste Management Board from testing on their land in Benton and Hancock townships. The WMB decided against testing when it became apparent that MnPOWER supporters would do everything possible short of violence to prevent the work from being completed. A proposal to change all northsouth streets in Belle Plaine was indefinitely tabled at that Monday night’s city council meeting. The proposal was presented by retired school teacher and former councilwoman Elizabeth Albrecht. She contended it would simplify directing people to various locations in town. However, about 30 people attended the public hearing and a number of them voiced their opposition to the proposal. Tom Lynch said, “I think the founder of the town did a wonderful job of laying out the town in 1854 and if any changes are to be made it should be put on the ballot.” When a show of hands was called, just two people voted in favor of the change and 25 were in opposition. The Belle Plaine Commission Company was switching to day sales that Thursday. According to Wayne Ediger, baby calves would open the sale at 10:30 a.m. with hay and straw sold at 1 p.m. The Belle Plaine Chamber of

Commerce would again sponsor Halloween activities for the youth of this community. The Halloween dance would be held at the junior high gym for grades 9-12. The roller skating party for grades 7-8 would take place at Skateville in Burnsville. Admission to both events was free. The Belle Plaine High School football team trounced Le Sueur 34-6. The Tigers had 394 yards, averaging 8.8 per play. Jeff Larson had his best night of the season with 205 yards rushing. Paul Jeffrey added 76 yards and Jeff Miller 49. Carl Hennen caught two passes for 32 yards. The Tiger tennis team lost to Visitation 4-1 in regional tournament action. Sharon Meger accounted for the Tigers’ only win. The BPHS volleyball team defeated Norwood and Montgomery to improve its 1983 record to 7-5. Laurie Wolpern and Sandi Schmidt were the kills leaders for the Tigers.

60 Years Ago (1953)

Thos. Novak, formerly of New Prague, was remodeling the north store room in the McKenna building for several weeks as the site for a drug store. The work was far enough advanced to permit announcement of the store’s opening. John Lawrence, 15-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. Edmund Lawrence, escaped fatal injury in an auto accident. The car he was driving was completely demolished and the road grader into which he crashed was damaged, but he came out of it with four fractured ribs and a fractured bone in his foot. The weather ranked as the top conversation item all through the month of October, and as each day brought temperatures in the 70s and 80s, everyone wondered how long it could last. It was expected to rank as the warmest October on record. Mrs. Margaret Bailey of

Blakeley was honored at a farewell party at the village schoolhouse. Many neighbors dropped in to say goodbye as she was leaving to make her home in St. Paul. Three alarms in as many hours kept our firemen busy. First was a grass fire at the Wilmer Karnitzes, then came report of a fire in the woods at the Emmett Crahan farm, and the final alarm was another grass fire at the rear of the Vern Nelson home. A very large number from this locality attended the funeral services at Rockford for Pastor Theo. E. Kock, who died at age 55. Pastor Kock was born in Arlington but lived most of his early years in Belle Plaine. Mrs. Mary Bailey, widow of the late Dennis Bailey, died at her home in Belle Plaine at age 93.

tober; fine for living but bad for business. Belle Plaine Township was largely represented in a ditch case in district court. A demand was for increased damages and reduced benefits. W.J. Gatz received word that his only brother, Wm. T. Gatz, 27, died in Los Angeles, to which place the family had moved the preceding year. At the home of the bride’s father took place the marriage of Miss Lila Wolfram to Roy Chard. Stella Chard and Clarence Wolfram were the attendants. John Boyle, who had farmed many years southeast of Assumption, died at age 92 at his home in Cincinnati, Ohio, to which he had moved on retirement from the farm. Preliminary surveys were underway for the new river bridge at Blakeley, contract for which was to be let the following January. Rev. Edward Schlavakenhausen, pastor of the Lutheran Church in Kelso Township, accidently shot and killed himself while cleaning a gun. Coming in from hunting with his sons, he was showing them how to clean a gun properly when it discharged. Mrs. Hannah Cauley, a resident of the community since 1856, died. Her family name was Sheridan and she was born in County Mayo, Ireland, in 1833. Hugh Mullen, a former resident of Assumption, and Miss O’Leary of Franklin, were married. Tom Connolly of Herdsville, S.D., was back for a visit with the home folks at St. Thomas. Joe Kulick, 12-year-old nephew of Mrs. Jos. Kulisheck, met his death from stepping on a barbed wire at the farm in Helena Township. Reinhard Schallow, 32, of Chaska, was killed when his car was hit by a train at a grade crossing near Chaska.

120 Years Ago (1893)

A chicken supper was being advertised at 25 cents a plate, 15 cents for children. A dozen of our townspeople made the trip to Chicago that week to take in the World’s Fair. The cattle herders wound up their season’s work. The cattle herders were a going business those days. Almost every householder kept a cow, and during seven months of the year, the cows were herded by professional herders on our open range. While wheat was less than 50 cents a bushel, manufactured goods were also low. Sheeting was 5 cents, calicoes and ginghams 5 cents, men’s heavy overcoats $2.50 and up and dogskin overcoats $8.50 and up. When two masked men tried to hold up the depot at Merriam, the night operator, Corley, reached for his gun and fired. After an exchange of shots, the bandits fled and Corley was left with four bullet wounds.

Letters to the Editor Dear Editor, Dear Government Officials: I wonder why you don't agree. For 55 men came to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on September 17, 1787 to create a new form of government. Now I'd like to see you come together just as those 55 men and agree with each other. Will you please compromise with each other? Please put an end to this Government Shutdown.  Rebecca Brueggemeier, 10 Belle Plaine Our Lady of the Prairie

Dear Editor, I would like to encourage everyone to support Dan Gardner in the upcoming School Board election on Nov. 5, 2013. I was privileged to work with Dan for several years at Belle Plaine Junior High. Dan was consistently held in high regard by both students and staff. He is an outstanding educator with 40 years of extensive experience teaching elementary through college level students. Dan is currently supervising and mentoring student teachers at Minnesota State UniversityMankato.  We are indeed fortunate to have an individual who has been an effective teacher and coach and has served in various administrative capacities in our school district. He has been well regarded as an activities administrator and Junior High dean of students. In addition, Dan understands what it takes to make a school function effectively. He has had extensive experience running a successful small business. With his business background and years of running athletic budgets, he has gained valuable specialized skills in analyzing and balancing budgets. This is an important skill set to insure a cost conscious and effective school district. Please support Dan Gardner in our upcoming elections to serve on our school board. Dan has always "put kids first". That is the kind of board member we need to elect to represent Belle Plaine.  Best regards,      Chuck Perkins      Belle Plaine Schools, retired      1964-1998

Three years ago, the Cologne City Council decided it was the way to go to bring low-cost Internet service to a community still too small to command advantageous pricing from a private Internet service provider. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We just didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have enough rooftops,â&#x20AC;? City Administrator John Hendel said. Last week, the city council approved an offer that will cover the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s startup costs and return city staff to city work instead of taking customer service calls for Cologne-ISP, the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wireless Internet service to residents in Cologne, Norwood Young America, Mayer, New Germany and area townships. For $17,500, the city purchased the equipment on towers from To the Home.com â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a company the city created to do installations and provide customer service as a sub-contractor the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Internet service known as Cologne-ISP. Cologne is selling the equipment and the accounts to Broadband Corp., a private sector residential Internet service provider with offices in Hutchinson and Victoria, for $71,500. The companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s service area includes most of Carver County, said Anthony Will, one of its partners. In 2010, Cologne loaned $200,000 in general fund money to start Cologne-ISP. It repaid half that amount in 2012.

That investment is now repaid with $1,000 to spare. Were their hiccups along the way, complaints the service wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t as good as residents expected? Absolutely, said Mayor Matt Lein. But most of those complaints rested with To the Home.com. The sale will put city staff back to work handling calls from residents about city services. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our residents are our No. 1 priority,â&#x20AC;? Hendel said. In the end, the city believes the effort was worth trying.

Not a Windfall

Perhaps the greatest disappointment was that the city walked away from the deal without realizing an eye-popping profit for the time and effort. McInnis wanted to see a larger return on the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s investment. But without a second potential buyer, the big numbers werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t coming, Lein said. The city will finalize the sale to Broadband Corp. by formally approving the purchase agreements at its Oct. 21 or Nov. 4 meetings. Cologne-ISP charged customers $24.95 per month (for 3 megabits) for the service, about half what some private sector companies would charge. The purchase agreement with Broadband Corp. says the company will maintain the price for a year. Anthony Will, one of the

partners of the firm, said plans call for it to honor the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s price â&#x20AC;&#x153;for the foreseeable future.â&#x20AC;? When the sale to Broadband Corp. became imminent, Cologne-ISP provided Internet service to about 90 of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 400 households. The service is at its peak, serving mostly residential and a few businesses in Cologne, Hendel said. Lein, McInnis and Hendel served on the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s technology committee. They studied Broadbandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s offer and realized it was the best option for Cologne given the relatively low rate of customer growth. Lein has noted the service adds new customers but lost almost as many because of inadequate customer service, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If Cologne-ISP were growing by multiple customers every month or every week, I think there would be other options,â&#x20AC;? Hendel said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to a company that is 100 percent dedicated to wireless Internet. They (Broadband Corp.) have the staff and the resources to respond to customer service requests.â&#x20AC;? Will said his company is well suited to take over CologneISP since it has many customers throughout Carver County. Started in 2003, Broadband Corp. serves much of Sibley, as well as Wright, McLeod, Meeker, Kandiyohi and Renville counties.

Green Isleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Vacant Residential Lots Drawing Some Interest ZumBerge: City Can Sell Available Lots to Anyone Once it Rejects Offers

Hall. ZumBerge thinks the city has about three offers so far. One is believed to be for all 43 lots. Monday (Oct. 21), councilors and the EDA will meet to discuss how to handle the offers. According to a resolution the city unanimously approved Sept. 24, the offers will be opened during a closed-door session Tuesday (Oct. 22). The council can decide if it wants to negotiate with prospective buyers or it can reject the offers since it did not set a minimum price. Once it accepts the offer, the name of each buyer and final purchase price is public, said City Attorney Ross Arneson. The city would like to recoup the assessments for the cost of the infrastructure for each lot. ZumBerge said the assessments average $15,000 per lot, assessments that will cover the payments on the bond that funded the street and sewer/water service to the lots about a decade ago. The lots range from about

When Green Isle City Councilors and members of its economic development authority met Monday night to discuss how to handle offers on any of the 43 vacant residential lots the city badly wants to sell, they at least had something to talk about. That wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the case a few days earlier. As of the previous Thursday, the city had yet to receive any sealed bids the city is taking on the properties. But late last week, Mayor Dale ZumBerge accepted a few sealed offers at his house. Offers were also dropped off at Green Isle City

for 2,000 people,â&#x20AC;? he said. The building would be located near the current entrance to the stadium. Denny is proposing a facility that would include a ticket booth and permanent female and male restrooms plus a family restroom that would be accessible from outside the football stadium when it is not being used. It would also include some storage space and a mechanical room. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been taking about such a facility since we built the (football-track) complex, but we were running out of money,â&#x20AC;? Smith told the board. Smith said a rough estimate might be in the neighborhood of up to $30,000. Denny is looking for potential revenue sources, donated monies that would include funds raised by the Lions and contributions from pull#OMMITTEDTO9OUR tabs, raffles and a contribution from the school district. #OMFORT#ARE Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also hoping for donated s#LEANINGS labor.

Buyers wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to pay the unpaid property taxes to the city, county and school district. The city just wants to get the residential properties in private ownership and back on the tax rolls. Even without the $57,280 in property taxes waived after Rosemount Development Corp. lost them for non-payment of property taxes, the special assessments that will pay for the bonds that funded the infrastructure (streets, sewer and water) to the lots is worth more than $660,000, according to the Sibley County Auditorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office. ZumBerge doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t expect the city will recoup the assessments. If the city rejects the offers, it can offer the lots to anyone with the funding to purchase one, some or all of the 43 lots, he said.

Title Defense in Absentia

Chef Dan Vesterling, a lead instructor in St. Paul Technical Collegeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s culinary arts program and the defending champion, canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make it back to defend his title officially. His students from the program will be back with his winning recipe and explicit cooking instructions. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s field again includes culinary federation chefs. Chefs from Cobornâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and Dairy Queen will be competing. Overall, there will be 17 entries in the chili cook-off, six more than a year ago. Each chef with a unique formula, Parks said. Shayna was particularly fond of some of the chili served in red sauces. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know there were so many different ways to make chili,â&#x20AC;? Dawn said. Tickets are $8 for adults, $4 for children under 12 with a family four pack for $18. They are available at the door or from any member of the Wizardz. Last year, Parks was hopeful but uncertain if the group could meet its goal of $2,000 for the Wizardz. This year, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hoping for $4,000. His daughter is a member of the team. The event was a big hit last year. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hoping press coverage will draw in a larger crowd. The biggest change this year is the schedule. The cook-off will be held Saturday, before the start of the deer-hunting season. Halverson was surprised by last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s event. The chefs were very competitive, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but it was all done in fun,â&#x20AC;? she said. The idea that the judges picked one winning recipe and the public picked another was a sign of the overall quality of the entries, she said. Donated paper products and desserts, along with a large crowd, made the event a huge success. The Halversons said the credit goes to Parks and the chefs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was just blown away,â&#x20AC;? Bill Halverson said. The athletes helped serve chili and clean tables. Leilani received a chefâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hat. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I like helping people,â&#x20AC;? she said. Oak Crest Elementary School is located at 1101 Commerce Drive W. in Belle Plaine.

I must admit that I sometimes get a little defensive when I hear discussions about student academic performance that indicate that todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s students are underperforming their peers from 20 to 40 years ago. While I do believe that we can be performing better than we currently are, I also believe that our students of today are performing at a level commensurate with, or even better than, their peers of 20 to 40 years ago. Recently an article by Paul Bruno in an education blog caught my attention with the following information about long-term trends in test scores. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you look at the National Assessment of Educational Progress' "long-term trends" in math and reading, it's true that overall scores have been basically stagnant for 17-year-olds since the NAEP was first administered in the early 70's. Reading Math 1971 2008 1971 2008 White 291 295 310 314 Black 239 266 270 287 Hispanic 252 269 277 293 First, consider test scores by student race. As you can see in the chart above, since the first NAEP administration average reading scores for white 17-year-olds have risen barely at all: 4 points from 1971-2008. (The next set of results - from the 2012 administration - will be released this year.) At the same time, reading scores have grown considerably faster for black and Hispanic students: 27 and 17 points, respectively. We see a similar pattern in math (see graph above). Between 1973 and 2008, scores for white students ticked up by a meager 4 points. Meanwhile, black students saw a gain of 17 points and Hispanic students' scores went up by 16 points. Obviously, it would be nice to have seen bigger achievement gains for white students and even bigger gains for students of color. And it's worth noting that many of the gains appear to have happened in the 70's and 80's, with gains slowing or stalling since then. Still, it's important to note that overall scores look flatter than they are in part because of demographic changes, with lower-scoring groups of students becoming a larger share of the population. Most notably: from 1980 to 2008, Hispanics grew from 6% to 15% of the population, while white students fell from 80% to 66%. Additionally, it's probably a mistake to look at high school achievement without also looking at dropout rates. Educational attainment is important in its own right and, while not as big of an issue in the lower grades, selective attrition has the potential to affect average test scores at the high school level. For example, in 1972 6.1% of students enrolled in high school dropped out. By 2008 that number had fallen to 3.5%. Improvements were striking for white students (5.3% to 2.3%), black students, (9.5% to 6.4%), and Hispanic students (11.2% to 5.3%). Evidently, more students are persisting through high school. The presence of these additional (presumably) lower-scoring students should, if anything, be putting downward pressure on NAEP scores. Instead, scores have - at a minimum - held steady. In other words, educational outcomes for students in the entire K-12 system are probably better than they have ever been. Describing educational achievement as "fairly flat" doesn't quite capture that.

Volleyball (continued from page 15) challenge at the end of set two, but I was proud that the team picked me up and continued battling for the remainder of the night.” Mariena Hayden sparked the Tigers with 24 kills, 17 digs and two ace serves, all team highs. Other statistical leaders for Belle Plaine were Amara Meyer (14 kills and three digs), Marykay Nasby (10 kills and 14 digs), Emily Vinkemeier (eight kills and three digs), Danielle Taylor (seven digs) and Devin Lehman (55 set assists). Tigers 3, Mayer Lutheran 1 This time, instead of winning the first set and dropping the next three, the Tigers dropped the first set and won the next three in a key 23-25, 25-22, 2512, 25-21 MRC victory Thursday night against the host Crusaders. “We had to make some adjustments to our lineup due to injuries earlier in the week,” Wolpern said. “Nonetheless, our players adapted and competed in an intense atmosphere, common in Mayer’s gym. Mayer played some great defense throughout the night but our composure prevailed and we remained in control most of the night. I was especially happy to see our team come back from a 18-21 deficit in game four, with their leading attacker in the front row, to seal the match without a deciding fifth set. That’s the kind of accomplishments we want to see at this time in the season.” Hayden continued her dominance at the net, hammering out 28 kills. She also had 16 digs. Also posting kills for the Tigers were Meyer (7), Vinkemeier (5), Nasby (4), Lehman (2), Taylor (1) and Dakotah Poitra (1). Johnson had 23 digs and two ace serves, both team highs. Lehman had 38 set assists. Kaylee Hentges had a team-high six block assists. The win improved Belle Plaine to 19-5 overall on the season. Tigers 3, Waconia 0 Belle Plaine had its hands full in the first set against a good Waconia team but managed to pull out a 28-26 win. The next two victories came much easier by counts of 25-15, 25-13. “Check off another challenge completed by the 2013 Tigers,” Wolpen exclaimed. “In a game where ball control is so important, Monday matches are challenging, let alone in a gym we haven’t won in for many years. We were a little too content in the first set, playing point for point, despite Waconia making 12 errors. After some physical and mental adjustments, we got into our groove and set the tone for playoff season.” Statistical leaders for the Tigers were Hayden (19 kills, nine digs and two ace serves), Marykay Nasby (17 kills and three digs), Lehman (35 set assists, seven digs and one ace serve), Amara Meyer (three kills) and Hentges (one kill and three digs). Vinkemeier and Poitra had Belle Plaine’s other two kills.

The following day, Romo completed 25 of 35 passes for 506 yards in a 51-48 loss to the Denver Broncos. SWMS and

Dallas both lost at home. For you football historical gurus out there, when is the last time two quarterbacks at the pro and/or collegiate level both threw for over 500 yards at home and lost on the same weekend? Or ever? This past Saturday, highscoring Southwest Minnesota State trounced Wayne State, Neb., 55-16 as Kern threw for 289 yards and four touchdowns and ran for two touchdowns.

That will be answered today (Wednesday) when Belle Plaine travels to Montgomery to take on once-beaten Tri-City United. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. The Titans kept their hopes of a share of the conference crown alive when they blasted visiting Jordan 50-0 Friday night. TCU’s only loss of the season came Oct. 4 by seven points at Watertown-Mayer, which kept its hope of gaining a share of the MRC title alive when the Royals defeated Mayer Lutheran 27-17 Friday night. If TCU defeats Belle Plaine, and W-M (at home) beats Jordan, all the above teams except Jordan will share the 2013 MRC crown. Besides sole possession of the conference championship, plenty more is at stake for the Tigers tonight. Most importantly, a guaranteed No. 1 seed for the Section 3AAA Tournament that begins next Tuesday night. The top two seeds will gain a first-round bye, meaning win or lose tonight, Belle Plaine will likely not have to play until the semifinals on Saturday, Oct. 26 and that game would be at home. Brackets for the tournament are expected to be released this Thursday. Check www.belleplaineherald.com or the Herald’s Facebook page for updates. Last Wednesday’s Herald reported that the Section 3AAA championship game on Nov. 1 will be played at Southwest Minnesota State University. That is incorrect. According to the MSHSL website, the game will be played at the home of the higher-seeded team. The section team standings in terms of wins and losses is currently Belle Plaine (7-0), St. Peter (5-2), Fairmont (5-2), Blue Earth Area (4-3), Sibley East (3-4) and Worthington (3-4). Also at stake tonight is the Tigers’ No. 1 ranking in the state Class 3A poll. In the second spot this week is Rochester Lourdes. Rounding out the top five are New London-Spicer, Watertown-Mayer and Glencoe-Silver Lake. The new rankings will be released later this week. Tigers 40, NYA 20 Belle Plaine took only a few plays to march 80 yards on the game’s first possession, culminating on a 5-yard touchdown run by Gavin Dauwalter. Jordan Buesgens’ extra-point kick made it 7-0 with 10:35 left in the first quarter.

The Raiders fumbled the ball away on their first possession, which led to a 45-yard scoring pass from quarterback Luke Narveson to wide receiver Chase Emmers to make it 14-0 with 9:00 left in the opening quarter. NYA mishandled the ensuing kickoff and Belle Plaine had the ball back at the NYA 43 yard line. Narveson soon scored on a 2-yard keeper. Buesgens missed the only extra-point kick he would on the night and it was 20-0 with 6:21 still left in the first quarter. Just 11 seconds later, the Raiders’ Zach Heiland sprinted 68 yards for a TD to make it 20-7. The scoring fest ended for a time as both teams exchanged possessions for the rest of the first quarter and well into the second. NYA actually closed to within 20-13 on an 18-yard scoring toss from Isaac Hormann to Casey Clemensen with 5:58 left in the first half. That would be as close as the Raiders would get as Dauwalter’s 5-yard TD run capped a 66-yard drive on Belle Plaine’s next possession, making it 2713 with just over a minute left in the half. The wind became even a bigger factor in the second half. After its first possession, NYA was forced to punt from inside its own 10 yard line. Once in the air, the punt sailed backwards and out of bounds at the 5 yard line. That led to a 4-yard scoring run by Narveson to make it 34-13 with 9:27 left in the third quarter. The score stayed that way until a 1-yard TD run by Belle Plaine’s Kincade Retzer made it 40-13 with 6:57 left in the game. A 23-yard TD pass from Clemensen to Evan Worm in the final minutes made the final 40-20. “Offensively, I thought we did a good job of having a balanced attack,” said Tigers coach Justin Johnston. “Chase Emmers and Derek Dahlke did a great job catching balls right away on the first few drives that gave us a big lead early. Luke Narveson did a nice job finding running room once they put seven guys into coverage and he really made them pay for only rushing four. We came out of the

gates so fast that we thought it was going to be an easy night, but it was nice to see the kids refocus and punch three more touchdowns in after Norwood got within a touchdown. “Defensively, we played a very nice second half, only giving up 43 yards of offense. That is a good statement as we head into this game vs. TCU,” Johnston continued. Narveson kept the ball 16 times for 138 yards and two TDs. Passing, he was eight of 18 for 167 yards and one TD and one interception. Emmers caught four of those passes for 112 yards and one TD. Dahlke had two grabs for 23 yards, while Sam Karl and Ben Stier both had one catch for 19 and 13 yards, respectively. Following Narveson in rushing yards for Belle Plaine were Dillon Haefner (eight carries for 38 yards), Emmers (two for 20 yards) Dauwalter (four for 14 yards and two TDs) and Chris Holmbeck (5 for 11 yards). No one else rushed for over 10 yards. Defensively, Mitch Nelson led the team in tackles with nine, followed by Blayne Prochaska and Dauwalter with seven apiece. Other tackling leaders were Zach Bahr (6), Josh Spellman (6), Stier (6), Aiden Winterfeldt (5), Dylan O’Brien (4), Colton Hentges (4), Jake Schultz (3), Brady Johnson (3), Dahlke (3) and Jacob Nowak (2).

Belle Plaine Girls Defend MRC Title; Boys Take Third by Dan Ruud The Belle Plaine High School girls’ cross country team won its second-straight Minnesota River Conference championship at Thursday’s conference meet at Baylor Park in Norwood Young America. The Belle Plaine boys’ team, which finished fourth last season, moved up to third this year. For the Belle Plaine girls, it was the program’s third MRC crown, the first coming in 2006. Although junior Janessa Meuleners fell short of winning her third-straight individual girls’ MRC title, her fourth-place finish this year was tops on the team again as Belle Plaine edged host Norwood Young America in team points 50-56. Rounding the eight-team field were Watertown-Mayer (85), Jordan (93), Tri-City United (131), Mayer Lutheran (171), Le Sueur-Henderson (175) and Sibley East (177). The individual medalist was NYA eighth-grader Judy Larson, who covered the 4,000meter course in a time of 15:11. Coming in second was Watertown-Mayer senior Elizabeth Miller in 15:26. TCU seventhgrader Sarah Novak was third in 15:33, followed by Meuleners at 15:43. Also obtaining all-conference honors for Belle Plaine by finishing in the top 10 individually in the 52-racer field were sophomore Alissa Schultz (eighth in 16:24) and sophomore Danika Schroeder (10th in 16:36). Joining Larson, Miller, Novak, Meuleners, Schultz and Schroeder on the all-MRC team for 2013 are sophomore Lydia Fails of W-M (fifth in 15:49), eighth-grader Emilie Berry of Mayer Lutheran (sixth in 16:09), junior Abbie Schnabel of NYA (seventh in 16:16) and senior Julia Orlow of Jordan (ninth in 16:30). Belle Plaine had four other runners in the race besides Meuleners, Schultz and Schroeder.

They were eighth-grader Skylee Schwingler (13th in 17:09), seventh-grader Hannah Witt (15th in 17:13), senior BreAnn McDermand (28th in 18:03) and freshman Hailey Witt (33rd in 18:20). Belle Plaine coach Steve Schroeder had praise for all of his runners, a number of whom turned in personal best times at an opportune time, resulting in a total team effort and championship.

ence status by placing in the top 10, leading to a team score of 43. Tri-City United was second at 52, followed by Belle Plaine (79), Norwood Young America (85), Mayer Lutheran (131), Le Sueur-Henderson (161), Sibley East (170) and WatertownMayer (172). Belle Plaine sophomore Dylan Bigaouette earned all-conference honors by placing fifth in the field of 55 runners, covering the 5,000-meter course in a time of 17:43.

Tigers Rout Raiders; Set Up Showdown at TCU Tonight by Dan Ruud For the first six minutes of Friday night’s game, the Belle Plaine High School football team looked every bit like the No. 1-ranked team in Class 3A it is and visiting Norwood Young America looked every bit like the winless team it is as the Tigers scored three early touchdowns to grab a 20-0 lead midway through the first quarter. But the rest of the game looked like one between two evenlymatched teams as they both scored 20 points in what ended in a 40-20 victory for the Tigers at a very windy Belle Plaine Athletic Complex. The win clinched at least a share of the Minnesota River The Tigers’ Janessa Meuleners, in front, led during the early Conference championship for stages of Thursday’s MRC meet at NYA. Although she lost the Belle Plaine, which improved lead later in the race, her fourth-place finish helped lead her to 6-0 in the MRC, 7-0 overall. The only question left in the team to a second-straight conference championship. MRC this season is whether the Tigers will have to share that title or claim it all their own.

Tigers Zero in on MRC Title by Dan Ruud The Belle Plaine High School volleyball team took one more step toward an outright Minnesota River Conference championship when it defeated a strong Mayer Lutheran team three sets to one Thursday night at Mayer. Last Tuesday, the Tigers made some noise against state Class 3A powerhouse Chaska in a nonconference match before losing in four sets. In another nonconference test this past Monday night, Belle Plaine swept Waconia in three straight at Waconia. Belle Plaine, which has already clinched a share of the Belle Plaine eighth-grader Skylee Schwingler, No. 23, finished 13th in a field of 52 racers at MRC championship with a 6-0 mark, was out to clinch Thursday’s MRC meet in NYA, which helped propel the Tigers to the conference title. the title outright in the conference season finale at Norwood Young America, which was 2-4

in MRC play. That match took place Tuesday night after this edition of the Herald went to press. The Tigers will close the regular season at this Saturday’s tournament in Chaska, where a number of the best teams in the state will be assembled. This has been an annual tournament for Belle Plaine in recent years, one it believes better prepares itself for postseason play. Brackets for the upcoming section tournament will be announced soon. Check www. belleplaineherald.com or the Herald’s Facebook page for updates. Chaska 3, Tigers 1 One of the best volleyball teams in all of Minnesota, some say it is the best, invaded the

BPHS gym last Tuesday night and accomplished what it came to do. However, it was no easy task as the Tigers battled the Hawks from beginning to end before succumbing 25-23, 2426, 17-25, 20-25. “Our kids were outstanding,” said Tigers coach Cassie Wolpern. “Being the underdog in a match can sometimes result in chaos, even if you’re playing well. But I was so impressed with our team’s composure and focus. Our girls played their best volleyball of the year, posting incredible stats against arguably the top team in the state. Unfortunately, a coaching error by me presented us with a big
