Scenic vistas, natural beauty and undeveloped terrain are among the main reasons Scott County wants to preserve the Blakeley bluffs west of Belle Plaine. The county has been acquiring land from willing sellers within the boundaries of a 2,400-acre regional park reserve.

Blakeley Bluffs the Big Winner in Latest Met Council Park Funding

Land acquisition in the Blakeley Bluffs got the funding needed for Scott County to move forward with two large acquisitions that will one day be an important park of the Blakeley Bluffs. The Metropolitan Council last week awarded the county Queen Hannah Johnson and King Zach Bahr $744,927 in funding that will eventually be a $3.6 million purchase of 240 acres from the Albrecht-Hutchinson family and 260 acres from Jeff Monnens of JMJM Holdings, the developer that had been planning including an 11-year-old girl, in seven executive home sites on Le Sueur County Friday night. dress in the school’s colors. high-value land on the bluffs The girl and her stepfather were Sporting events at home this between County Road 1 and the reportedly returning home from week are the tennis team in sec- Minnesota River.

ropolitan Council is the first phase of funding for the purchase since the county has reached the cap on the amount it can receive in 2013, said Mark Themig, manager for Scott County and Three Rivers Park District’s jointly operated parks in Scott County. Specifically, the $744,927 will partially fund 114 acres within the 2,400-acre park reserve. The land purchase is significant because the development would have bisected a portion of the proposed reserve, Themig said. The acquisition includes a variety of types of land for passive recreational uses -- scenic viewing spots of the river valley, bluffs, ravines, river front-

age, floodplain and tilled land, he said. “It really would have had a negative impact on the park reserve if we weren’t able to acquire it,” Themig said. “This funding is really significant.” He credited landowners with having the patience to stick with talks of land acquisition. Talks with the Albrecht-Hutchinson family, Themig said, have evolved over five years. He said the land purchases are made possible because of landowners interested in preserving land for future generations, a supportive political climate in-

2013 Homecoming Coronation Night Coronation Night

Belle Plaine natives Cayla (Seymour) Menke and Samantha Stark have fond memories of homecoming week. As new teachers in Belle Plaine elementary schools, they’ll watch students enjoy homecoming week in preparation for Friday’s game. They are two of several Belle Plaine natives who teach in the school district.

For Belle Plaine Teachers, Getting Hired is The Best Homecoming Samantha Stark and Cayla Menke could have potentially been hired in any of several area school districts. As Belle Plaine celebrates homecoming this week, both are thrilled they were hired in their hometown. Stark and Menke are two of the 16 new staff the district hired earlier this year. Menke teaches early childhood family education at Chatfield. Stark is a third-grade classroom teacher at Oak Crest Elementary School. Both remember their days at Belle Plaine High School fondly. They know firsthand the fun students will enjoy this week during the festivities leading up to Friday night’s big game against the visiting Giants from Le Sueur-Henderson. They recall fondly the week of festivities, especially the themed dress-up days, the dance and the football game Friday night in Tiger Park. “The dress-up days were always the best,� Stark said. Menke grew up Cayla Seymour before she married David Menke. She taught for a year at Arlington Elementary School before taking time off to be at home with her young daughters, Tessa and Taylor, as they grew toward school age. Menke recalls Beverly Huls as the teacher who inspired her toward becoming an educator. “She just made it fun. I liked going to school,� said Menke, a 2002 graduate of BPHS.

Menke can’t walk onto the playground at Chatfield Elementary without thinking of her days playing there. It was Belle Plaine’s only public elementary school at the time. She recalls playing in the ravine beyond the fence that divides the playground from the woods.

No Place Like . . .

When Menke decided to return to teaching, she looked for a job and knew eventually she wanted to come home to Belle Plaine. “I like the school. I like the kids. I like the community,� she said. “You think back and there are so many good memories.� That sense of community proved itself in the past year when an early-morning fire destroyed the Menke’s home. The outpouring of support was heartfelt and impressive. The couple is rebuilding their house. “This is just a fantastic community,� she said. A 2008 Belle Plaine high grad, Stark likewise has strong and positive memories of growing up in Belle Plaine. She recalls riding her bike to the video store to rent movies and spending time with friends never having to worry about not being safe. “This was just a great community to grow up in,� she said. Many of the teachers both Menke and Stark had as high

school students are now colleagues, though they don’t teach in the same building. They can speak on a first-name basis with teachers like Rich Foust, Lyle Noah, Cerisse Murphy, Carol Schultz, Jan Bremseth and Janel Eischens. “Obviously they love it. They’re still here,� Stark said. After graduating from Minnesota State University, Mankato, Stark interviewed with several different school districts. She didn’t get a permanent teaching job, but managed long-term substitute jobs at Oak Crest Elementary School. Though disappointed about not being hired for a permanent job, the long-term substitute positions turned out to be a godsend. She filled in for Angela Kalal, her old softball coach, while she was on maternity leave. Stark then filled in for Martha (Marti) Hartmann, a fifth-grade teacher at Oak Crest, while she was on a medical leave. Stark recalls preparing for the formal interviews for the teaching job. She was as focused and prepared for the interviews like no test she’d taken during her school years. “I really wanted to do well. I really wanted a job in Belle Plaine,� she said. “Before the long-term sub. jobs, I wanted a job anywhere, but afterwards, I really wanted to work at Belle Plaine. I’m so happy I got a job here.�

BELLE PLAINE HERALD, BELLE PLAINE, MINNESOTA

Linda P. Franzen, 67, of Belle Plaine passed away peacefully on Saturday September 28, 2013 at the Ridgeview Medical Center in Waconia with her husband and children at her side. Mass of Christian Burial is Wednesday, October 2 at 10:30 a.m. at St. Brendan Catholic Church (221 Mcgrann St. S.), Green Isle with Father Keith Salisbury as Celebrant of the Mass. Visitation was Tuesday from 4-8 p.m. at the Johnson Funeral Home in Waconia and 1 hour prior to the Mass at church on Wednesday. Interment is in the church cemetery. Linda was born on March 30, 1946 in Watertown, MN the daughter of Lambert and Helen (Van Lith) Bukowski. She was baptized at St. Peter and Paul Catholic Church in Loretto. Linda and John created their home in Green Isle.  She worked with her husband on their dairy farm while raising four children.  Linda enjoyed fishing, baking, reading, music, visiting friends and playing cards. After the dairy herd was sold, Linda enjoyed working part time at the Hillcrest Café where she made lifelong friendships. Linda learned from her parents the enjoyment of fishing.  This is something Linda and John shared and passed onto their children. The children remember wonderful times of getting away for an afternoon of fishing, going up north for a long weekend, and meeting their grandfathers at the lake. In 2010 John and Linda purchased a camper and pontoon on Rice Lake in Eden Valley. The whole family loves meeting there for campfires, BBQs, cards and especially fishing. We would tease mom while fishing, because we would stop at a spot, she would wait to see who would catch a fish, then she would cast out right to where that person was fishing. If her line got tangled or needed fixing, she would give it to John to fix, and ask someone else for their pole. We all enjoyed fishing with mom, and loved how she would laugh and enjoy the banter back and forth.  Though Linda didn’t say too much, especially when in a group of people, she loved hearing others joking and poking fun. We will miss mom for so many reasons, and for so many things that cannot be put into words. She was always there, whether we were kids getting off the bus and needing her comfort after a rough day of school or needed to share the excitement of a fun day. She was always there to jump in and help with a project on the farm, or when you just wanted someone to talk to and listen who would not judge and who would always be on your side.  Mom lives on in her children and grandchildren. Her knowledge of baking and fishing has been passed down and become a love of all of us (the girls like to bake and the boys like to eat it) and we all love to fish. We take comfort in the wonderful family that mom and dad have provided us.  We are surrounded by very caring aunts, uncles, nieces, and nephews.  We were taught how to treasure family, life,

Vendors Sought for Craft Show to be Held at Scenic Byway Races

Farmers Market Corner The original plan was for Oct. 16 to be the last day of the market this year. However, there has been some demand that we hang around through October. Weather dependent, we will be at Court Square for ďŹ ve more weeks. There is a great array of squash available now. Spaghetti squash is fun and nutritious. Butternut makes a super fall soup. Branch out, spice up your life and try something other than acorn. Your taste buds will appreciate your effort. The tables are full of fresh vegetables begging to be on

your table. Broccoli, cauliower, beans, carrots, beets and more await you. There are also a lot of tomatoes and peppers for salsa, soups, sauces and whatever you can dream up. Put Google to work and see how creative you can be. 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.

SCHS Guest Speaker to Talk About Minneapolis Mob Days The Scott County Historical Society welcomes guest speaker author Neal Karlen at its annual meeting 7 p.m. Oct. 10. Karlen will present “Augie’s Secrets: The Minneapolis Mob and the King of the Hennepin Strip.â€? “In a few blocks between the swanky clubs and restaurants on Eighth Street and the sleazy ophouses and bars of the Gateway District, the city’s shakers-and-movers and shakedown artists mingled. Gangsters and celebrities, comedians and politicians, the rich and the famous and the infamous —all of them met at Augie’s: Jimmy Hoffa, Henny Youngman, Kid Cann, John Dillinger and Jack Dempsey. Augie Ratner knew everyone, and everyone knew and liked Augie, and they told him everything.â€? Neal’s presentation is approximately 45 minutes in length followed by time for questions and discussion. The SCHS annual meeting begins with an open house at 6 p.m., followed by a brief business meeting at 6:30 p.m., and

Neal Karlen’s presentation at 7 p.m. The cost is $4 for adults, $ for students and free for SCHS members. “I started more than 25 years ago, getting Kid Cann’s FBI ďŹ les and beginning to poke around whenever I came back to Minneapolis to visit from New York. And nobody wanted to talk,â€? Karlen said. “Too many of the principals were still alive, those who knew what had happened totally clammed up. And then, a couple years ago, people started talking. I guess you reach an age where you just don’t care anymore — when you’re nearing death, and you know it, somehow secrets from 30, 40 or 50 years ago don’t seem that important anymore. I just got lucky in that when I started in earnest on the book, a lot of people were in that weird existential place where you know your time is limited on this planet, but you are still in touch with all your old memories — probably better than you are with what happened today — and you want to tell.â€?

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 2, 2013

October is National Bake and Decorate Month. Baking is a great way to break the chill in the house on a fall morning. It is hard to argue about the joy that home baked goods can bring out. At this time of year, there are some garden vegetables and fruits like raspberries, apples, and pears that are abundantly available to work with. Baking and decorating are activities that you can share with your kids. You can teach them skills that will be valuable throughout life. Learning to read a recipe, or measure out some ingredients are activities easily shared.Cakes can be decorated for all kinds of reasons. Even though anniversaries and birthdays are great reasons to decorate a cake, it does not have to revolve around a birthday or anniversary. You might make something to celebrate a good report card or a job around the house that was well done. Some people might prefer to bake some rolls for breakfast and decorate them with swirls of icing or colored sprinkles. Take it from somebody who baked with her kids and now bakes with her grandkids, it is great fun. Do you need recipes? Could you use some ideas? If so, your local library can help. We have recipe books and magazines to research for ideas. The internet computers can give you access to wonderful recipes from many wonderful websites. Ask me, and I will point you toward some of my favorite websites. Often the toughest part is trying to pick out which recipe you are going to use. Let your library be a key ingredient in your baking adventures. We will try our best to rise to the occasion. One of the things that you may want to check out at your local library is the lost and found box. I could not help but notice that it was getting rather full again and that we are approaching the time of year when some of these items may be welcomed back home. The next time that you drop in at the library, take a quick look through the box. You may ďŹ nd some lost treasure. Once a month adult book club/discussion group meets in the Rose Room of the Belle Plaine Public Library at 7 p.m. on the 4th Thursday of the month. The group is small, but we are hoping more readers may be interested in participating. For October 24, the Book Club will be reading “A Moveable Feastâ€? by Ernest Hemingway Story Time on Friday, October 4 at 10:30 a.m. is a “Meâ€? theme.

There will be more to the third annual Scenic Byway HalfMarathon, 5K and Kids races at Court Square Park in Belle Plaine on Oct. 12. There will also be a Harvest Festival featuring entertainment, food, kid-friendly activities and a craft show, the latter of which vendors can still sign up for. Vendors are being admitted on a ďŹ rst-come, ďŹ rst serve basis. You can sign up by contacting Sony Mesenbring at 952-873-4295 or belleplainefestivals@gmail.com. Set up time will be from 6 a.m. to 8 a.m. and the craft show will stay open until 1 p.m. The event will take place rain or shine.

Friday is Last Day to Save on Scenic Byway Race Fees

The cost to run in the half-marathon is currently $40. After this Friday and through race day the cost will be $50. The fee for the 5K race is presently $25 and will increase to $30 after Oct. 4. The cost of the Kids Fun Run will go up from $5 to $10. You can register for either one of the runs at www.belleplainefestivals.org or www.andersonraces.com. Both the half-marathon and 5K courses are USATF certiďŹ ed and chip-timed, making this event a

great, competitive running opportunity within the peak-of-harvest beauty along the Minnesota River Valley. Anderson Race Management is helping organize the events, which include awards, medals and a post-race party. The Kids Fun Run will start at 8:45 a.m., followed by the halfmarathon at 9 a.m. and the 5K at 9:20 a.m. A pasta dinner and pre-race packet pick-up, put on by the Belle Plaine High School cross country teams, will be available on from 5-8 p.m. on Oct. 11 at Oak Crest Elementary School in Belle Plaine. Race-day registration and packet pick up will open 7:30 a.m. at the park.

Four Killed in Le Sueur County Crash Four people, including a young girl, are dead following a headon collision in Le Sueur County Friday night. According to the Minnesota State Patrol, the crash happened at approximately 10 p.m. on County Road 26 four miles west of Montgomery in Le Sueur County. Condon Hulgan, 51, and his 11-year-old stepdaughter, Mary

Urtuzuastegui, were reportedly on their way home from Tri-City United’s homecoming football game when the crash occurred. Both died at the scene. Also killed were two occupants in the other vehicle – Jeffrey Miller, 22, and his passenger Travis Reak, 25, both of Le Center. They died at the scene. Miller’s brother, Mark Miller, 24, was hospitalized with non-

life-threatening injuries. According to the State Patrol, Jeffrey Miller was traveling east on County Road 26 when his and Hulgan’s vehicles collided. Hulgan was driving a Ford Explorer when it crossed the center line and collided head-on with a Mercedes Benz in the opposite lane. Urtuzuastegui was a sixthgrader at Most Holy Redeemer school in Montgomery.

Green Isle Taking Bids on 43 Vacant Residential Lots After years of wondering what to do with 43 vacant residential lots, Green Isle will take bids on the lots with the hope some or all of them are sold. The council decided to publish a legal ad advertising the 43 lots. Sealed bids are due Oct. 15. The city will open and consider the bids during a closed meeting Oct. 22. The lots are available to the highest bidder with no stated minimum bid amount. A resolution the city passed says at its Sept. 24 meeting the city reserves the right to “reject any and all bids.� The resolution and plan to advertise the lots for sale to the highest bidder was a late addition to the city’s Sept. 24 agenda. Mayor Dale ZumBerge said he and John Foley, the chairperson of the Green Isle Economic Development Authority, came up with the plan Monday, Sept. 23. The city is hoping 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 9,400 square

Free CPR Classes St. Francis Medical Center in Shakopee offers CPR Anytime classes once a month from 6-7 p.m. This class teaches lifesaving skills in case of an emergency. It is not a certiďŹ cation course and participants will not receive a CPR card, however, it will teach basic adult and child CPR. Class size is limited, so call the ‘Ask St. Francis’ Information line at 952-428-2000 or go to www.stfrancis-shakopee.com to reserve your space.

feet on Gloria Drive to 27,000 square feet (almost 2/3 of an acre) on Erin Circle. The city council and EDA were scheduled to meet Monday (Sept. 30) in a workshop to discuss how to handle the bids. ZumBerge expects most of the bids will be below the amount the city has invested in each lot. The city is expecting it will take a loss on the lots, ZumBerge said. “It’s more important to get them back on the tax rolls than have the city own them,� he said. The lots were acquired from the state a few years back through tax foreclosure. Potential buyers will not have to pay back property taxes to the state, Sibley County or City of Green Isle.

Concrete in Lions Park

The council decided at the Sept. 24 to accept a bid for a 30-by50 foot concrete slab for a basketball court in Lions Park. John Schauer submitted the low bid of $6,725. Councilor Mark Wentzlaff submitted a bid of $6,750. Schauer’s bid included a gravel base and steel rebar. Wentzlaff’s

bid included a wire mesh but did not include a gravel base. Wentzlaff abstained from the vote but conceded that Schauer’s bid was a good value for the city. Schauer must start the job by Oct. 15 and complete it by Oct. 21. If he can’t meet those time constraints, the council decided the job goes to Wentzlaff. The city had considered asphalt for the basketball court. It received a bid of $3,675 for a 30-by-50 foot (three inches thick) asphalt court. The council favored concrete to avoid the maintenance issues associated with the asphalt. In other action at the Sept. 24 meeting, the Green Isle City Council: • Paid bills totaling $5,431.85. • Awarded to William Mueller & Sons of Hamburg a repair and blacktop paving job on a section of Western Avenue for $9,809.80 and section of Fourth Avenue for $5,512. • Directed City Attorney Ross Arneson to draft a proposed set of regulations for fencing around businesses.

BELLE PLAINE HERALD, BELLE PLAINE, MINNESOTA

Thirty Years Ago This Week

Bieder Bros. sorghum mill wound up the season’s run with a production of a little less than 6,000 gallons. Mrs. John Crahan died at the family home in St. John’s parish at the age of 65. A native of Wisconsin, Helen Horan was a child when her parents came to Minnesota. In 1892, she married John Crahan. Chris Kahle was erecting an attractive new home on his lots a block south of the public school. At the Catholic church at Heidelberg took place the marriage of Peter Neisen of Belle Plaine Township and Rose Schipertt of Lexington. The couple left for Mahnomen to engage in farming. Death came unexpectedly to Mrs. Peter Hahn at the age of 65. The funeral was held from Sts. Peter and Paul’s Church. Delegates from West Union to the two-day Luther League convention were Lily Williams, Evelyn Anderson, Earl Olson and Hildor Anderson. John Sullivan, 63, died at his home in St. Paul and his remains were brought to Sacred Heart Church for funeral services and burial. He was a native of St. Thomas but was engaged in business in Belle Plaine for 12 years. J.C. Woestehoff purchased what at one time was known as the George McConnell farm in Blakeley Township. After spending the summer with relatives in Sweden, Miss Selma Johnson arrived at her home in East Union, accompanied by a brother who would make his home in this country.

Chili Cook-Off to Benefit B.P., Area Special Olympians A chili cook-off to beneďŹ t Special Olympics is set for Oct. 19 at Oak Crest Elementary School in Belle Plaine. The event will run from 4 to 7:30 p.m. It will draw amateur and professional chefs from throughout the area competing for the top prize. The cost to sample the entries is $8 for adults, $4 for children ages 12 and younger. Proceeds will go to help The Wizardz – a Special Olympics team of participants from Belle Plaine and the area—fund a trip to the Special Olympics state tournament.

Letter to the Editor Dear Editor, By proclaiming November to be "Muslim Appreciation Month," the current occupant of the White House has reached a new low. Paradoxically, I agree. Americans do need to thoroughly appreciate Islam and its' Muslims. To fully appreciate Islam, I recommend these books: 'What Americans Need to Know About Islam' by Michael Federer and 'Barbarian Cruelty' by Francis Brooks. First published in 1693, 'Barbarian Cruelty' is available from T.B.R. Book Club, P.O. Box 15877, Washington D.C. 20003 for $9 and $4 S&H. A word to the wise is sufďŹ cient.

Ediger Auction Service Honored as ‘Friend of 4-H’ Ediger Auction Service of Belle Plaine was honored at the Scott County 4-H Recognition Banquet held on Sunday, Sept. 29 at St. John the Baptist Catholic Church Hall in Jordan. The Ediger family has been calling bids at the Scott County 4-H Blue Ribbon Livestock Auction held during the county fair for more than 50 years. In a Scott County 4-H press release, it states: “During the past decade, we have seen the third generation of the Ediger family assisting with the auction on

what can sometimes be the hottest day of the summer. But that doesn’t deter the dedication the Ediger family displays for this event that beneďŹ ts, not only the individual 4-Hers, but the 4-H program overall. “Ediger Auction Service donates auction services to many non-proďŹ t/charitable organizations on an annual basis. They are to be commended on the support they give to these organizations throughout the county,â€? continued the press release.

Joan Growe announced her candidacy for U.S. Senate at the Leo and Marion Fogarty farm six miles south of Belle Plaine on Sunday, Oct. 2, 1983. “I wanted to announce somewhere other than the Press Club and I wanted to be near my friends. That’s why I picked the rural Belle Plaine setting of the Leo and Marion Fogarty farm for the occasion,â€? stated Growe. Over 300 people paid $5 for a lunch and the opportunity to be on hand for Growe’s formal announcement that she was seeking the endorsement by the DFL for the U.S. Senate in 1984. The incumbent was Independent-Republican Rudy Boschwitz. Growe, 48, was in her third term as secretary of state and lived in Minneapolis. She went on to lose the election to Boschwitz and continued on as secretary of state until 1999.

WEDNESDAY, october 2, 2013

St. Thomas Masses scheduled at St. Thomas Catholic Church are October 5, and November 2, at 5 p.m. with Fr. Roger Hessian officiating. The mass schedule at St. Anne’s Catholic Church in Le Sueur, with Father George Grafsky officiating, is on Saturdays at 5:15 p.m. and Sundays at 8 and 10:30 a.m. Funeral Services for Travis Reak, the son of Roger and Eileen Meger Reak, were here Wednesday, October 2 as the young man was   laid to rest among our dearly departed, near his great-grandparents, Pete and John Callahan, his maternal grandparents, Emil and Bertha Meger, and his uncles, Wayne and Kenny. Travis was a member of our close-knit Callahan/Meger family that connect the Gill, Labin, Honza, Simonette and O’Connell families. A fun-loving, gregarious fellow, lover of life and living it to the fullest. Travis bought a home in the Lexington community close to his folks and was looking forward to a future here, close to family and his many friends. Our sincere sympathies to Roger, Eileen, Adam and Sarah, all the Reak and Meger aunts, uncles, cousins and friends. This family isn’t a stranger to sadness and grief, and it does not get easier. Our sympathies to the other families who lost their loved ones in the accident between Montgomery and Lexington Friday evening. The Bruce Halloran family

all got together for the annual hayride on Sunday. All of the kids showed up to eat and the grandkids showed up to drive one of grandma and grandpa’s tractors and/or lawn tractors to celebrate their rural history and heritage. Caleb Onken drove the old John Deere with uncle Aaron and brother Brad looked over his shoulder as they toured the farmstead. They also celebrated birthdays for young Cullen Flynn, young Alex Case and Grandma Cathy. It was a beautiful day for a hayride. Ellen and Gwen even caught a few rays sunning themselves on the front lawn. Sunday was the 16th Annual Step Up for Down Syndrome walk in St. Paul. This is our 5th year participating at this event. Dan, Julie, Declan and Neela beautiful day to celebrate and raise awareness for individuals with Down Syndrome!  Declan’s Irish Clan included 55 family and friends. St. Thomas folks include: Brandon, Gina and Garin O’Connell, Jim, Marsha, Emily, Anna and Caleb Sullivan. Declan’s Irish Clan successfully collected over $2,000 for the Down Syndrome. Jean and Patti Jo Burns, Diane Palmstien, her daughter and granddaughter, Debbie Telon and Jasmine, and Loni Graham “the other grandma” enjoyed the hospitality of Dave and Dawn Elfstrand, Courtney, Natalie and Jack in Rochester this last weekend. Dawn took her guests shopping, antiquing, dining, and crafting. A good time was had by all.

County Activates New CarverLink Ring of Fiber The culmination of several years of work above and below ground was recently realized when Carver County flipped the switch to activate it new CarverLink broadband system. Initially envisioned in 2008, the new $7.5 million system will allow local units of government – the county, cities, townships and school district – the broadband to efficiently share information in a fraction of the time. Commissioner Tim Lynch of Hollywood Township reported files that previously took 30 minutes to download and send via the old copper T1 line are now electronically out the door in seconds, the Waconia Patriot recently reported.

the book. I thought maybe it was a sticker a kid put there. I started peeling it off and then felt something round and thought, holy cow, I think I’ve found the coin,” Pam said. And that she did, bringing an end to the second annual Harvest Coin Hunt. Last year, it took Annie Miller and Angie Johnson four clues to solve the inaugural Harvest Coin Hunt, finding the coin in the Blaha Bird Sanctuary. Pam said she gives most of the credit to finding this year’s coin to Don. “He’s the one that figured out the clue. I was just a second set of eyes,” Pam said. “It was my theory and her eagle eyes,” Don agreed. Pam and Don were searching the library area earlier Friday but then had to leave because they had other plans. When those plans fell through, they returned to the library and put an end to this year’s Harvest

Coin Hunt. During the years when Gerry Meyer used to write the clues for the St. Patrick’s and BarB-Q Days coin hunts, Don found the St. Pat’s coin in 1996, 1997 and 1998, the latter year of which he also found the Bar-B-Q Days coin. Now that there’s a coin hunt that he doesn’t write the clues for, he’s back in the game once a year. And 15 years after his last coin find, Meger said “I’ve still got it.” Meger said there were at least several references in the first clue that led him to believe that the coin had to be at or very near the library. Included were: Extra! Extra! read all about it. He was way overdue You may want to check out this place more than once. Meger said another major clincher was the phrase Your dream is out there, which is a slogan for nearby American Family Insurance.

Friends of Minnesota Valley Receive $15,000 Xcel Grant Friends of the Minnesota Valley recently received a $15,000 grant from Xcel Energy for its Community Clean-Ups for Water Quality program. This grant was made through the environment focus area for Xcel Energy’s corporate giving, part of the company’s effort to support non-profit organizations providing services in towns and cities served by Xcel Energy. “We are very excited and proud that the clean-ups are being recognized for their innovation and their effectiveness in reducing stormwater pollution in the Minnesota River Watershed,” said Lori Nelson, executive director for Friends of the Minnesota Valley. Community Clean-Ups for Water Quality are locally-led phosphorus and nitrogen pollution reduction projects. Each year, citizens in communi-

ties throughout the Minnesota River Watershed participate in clean-ups by raking and bagging organic debris such as leaves, dirt, grass clippings and branches that collect in and near municipal stormwater intake areas. Nelson pointed out that the support from Xcel Energy is critical and will make it possible for Friends of the Minnesota Valley to continue to expand its network of communities participating in Community Clean-Ups for Water Quality. Clean-ups are conducted in both the spring and fall. Results are tallied and reported to the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency, which is applied to the agency’s pollution reduction data for the Minnesota River. Volunteers interested in organizing clean-ups in their communities can contact the Friends at 952-858-0732 or at lnelson@ friendsofmnvalley.org.

It is Homecoming at Belle Plaine Schools this week with many activities scheduled for the week beginning with Coronation this past Monday evening. Congratulations to King Zach Bahr and Queen Hannah Johnson along with the entire royal court who will preside over all of the festivities. On Tuesday, our cross-country team competes at the Ney Center at 4 p.m. and our volleyball team hosts non-conference foe New Prague. On Thursday, our Minnesota River Conference Champion tennis team begins Section tournament action by hosting Jordan. Congratulations to Coach Annette Moylan who was recently named Coach of the Year for the Conference. The winner of Thursday’s match will advance to the semi-final match at Gustavus on Monday, Oct 7. Also competing on Thursday will be our Tiger volleyball team as they return to conference action hosting Tri-City United. The week concludes with our football team hosting conference rival LeSueur-Henderson on Friday night at 7 pm. Help support our Belle Plaine Lion’s Club by enjoying a pizza supper prior to the football game. Pizza will once again be sold at Oak Crest Elementary with serving taking place from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. While many Minnesotan’s were watching the news on Monday to see if the US Government was going to be shut down on Tuesday, or to see if Ron Gardenhire would remain as Twin’s manager for next year, Minnesota school districts were watching the news for updates on the repayment of borrowed funds by the State of Minnesota. The Management and Budget Office of Minnesota had until Monday, September 30th, to finalize the end of the fiscal year for the state. Any surpluses that exist at the end of the fiscal year are to be paid to Minnesota schools to continue to pay back the funds that had been borrowed from schools several years ago as a budget-balancing maneuver by the legislature and the governor. At the time, approximately $2.8 billion was “borrowed� by the State of Minnesota from school district payments in order to balance the state’s budget. By the end of the 2012-13 school year, the state had paid back nearly $2 billion to school districts with approximately $874 million remaining to be repaid. Monday’s announcement of a $636 million state surplus for the fiscal year just ended means that Minnesota schools will begin receiving repayments of their funds as early as October 15th when the next state aid check is processed for each school district. After this repayment, approximately $238 million is all that remains to be paid back to schools. Prior to the shift occurring, the Belle Plaine Schools would typically have an IOU from the State of Minnesota at the end of each year for just over one million dollars. After the full shift was implemented, the IOU swelled to over four million dollars for our district. Since the IOU is money that is owed to the district for operating purposes, the district resorted to borrowing money in order to continue making payments on payroll and on Legal Notices products/services that were purchased. Our goal (expected to be reached by next summer) as a district is to eliminate any short term borrowing in the future as the shift is paid back in full. As always, if you have any questions about school matters, please feel free to call me at 873-2400, contact me via email at ksmith@belleplaine.k12.mn.us, via Twitter @BPTiger716 or check our website at www.belleplaine.k12.mn.us.

Le Sueur County commissioners are weighing the potential that someone without the appropriate expertise could be elected Le Sueur County’s auditor or treasurer against the time-honored tradition of the public’s right to elect who takes care of millions of taxpayer dollars. Now, they want to hear what the public thinks. The county board scheduled a public hearing Oct. 22, 7 p.m., at the courthouse in Le Center. Pam Simonette, the current auditor/treasurer, believes the job is too important to potentially held by someone without the proper expertise and experience. Elected positions like county sheriff and attorney have statutory requirements to hold the ofďŹ ce. There are no statutory requirements to be the elected auditor-treasurer, Simonette said. To formally change the auditor-treasurer position to an appointed one, the county would either need to hold an election or seek and pass enabling legislation.

Kevin Dahle, DFL-NorthďŹ eld – are preliminarily supportive of the proposal. Before Le Sueur County can draft a bill to send to St. Paul, commissioners need to pass a resolution supporting the change by a 4-1 margin.

According to the 2012 American Community Survey, the median household income in the Minneapolis metro area was $66,282 in 2012, an increase from $64,712 in 2011. In addition, 10.7 percent of people in the Twin Cities area were in poverty in 2012, which was not statistically different from 11.0 percent in 2011. In 2012, 7.8 percent of the area’s population lacked health insurance coverage, a decrease from 8.9 percent in 2011. Across all U.S. metro areas, median household income was $53,607 in 2012 (not statistically different from $53,545 in 2011), the poverty rate remained at 15.5 percent, and the uninsured rate decreased from 15.0 percent to 14.7 percent since 2011. Other selected highlights for the Twin Cities area (compared with all U.S. metro areas): In 2012, 47.3 percent of 3- and 4-year-olds were enrolled in school, which was not statistically different from 48.6 percent in 2011.

proposed 5.3 percent increase in the city’s property tax levy. The city council recently discussed the addition of more coverage by the Carver County Sheriff’s OfďŹ ce. A proposal to switch a second full-time deputy from summer-only coverage to part-time year-round coverage is part of a plan that could increase the city’s commitment to law enforcement from $126,913 in 2013 to $165,447 in 2014, the Chaska Herald recently reported. The city is apparently not ready for a full-time planner and will instead retain contract city planner Cindy Nash on a monthly retainer. The proposal will cost the city about $129,000. The city had considered a full-time community development director, a position Nash reportedly is not interested in taking, for $125,000. Carver is preliminarily budgeting $138,000 in building permit revenue for 2014. The city is expecting the construction of 31 single-family houses and nine town houses. The city took in just under $78,000 in building permit revenue this year. Overall, the city is considering increasing its budget by 4 percent to $2.37 million. The possible hike in spending in 2014 will in part be funded by a proposed 5.3 percent increase in the city’s preliminary levy. The proposed increase of the city’s tax levy to $1.97 million comes after no increase in 2013.

Bluffs (continued from page 1) volving Blakeley Township and Scott County. The township is concerned about the loss of property tax revenue. Themig said those concerns are justified and could result in the county agreeing to “work with the township on the future status of some township roads that might serve more of a park purpose in the future.” “Those are conversations we need to continue having,” he said. The other key factor in preserving the land is funding available from the state thanks to tax revenue voters OK’d in the 2008 constitutional Legacy

Amendment. A portion of the tax revenue voters OK’d was intended for land preservation. “This is what Minnesota voters wanted,” Themig said. The Albrecht-Hutchinson family plans to stay on the land as caretakers, a practice that keeps a set of eyes on the land. In August, the Scott County Board approved a land swap with land the county acquired from a bank. The swap allows the family to build a new home on tilled land. The 500 acres is in addition to 121 acres the Minnesota Department of Natural resources purchased from the Kjellsvig family near the Ney Center. Two years ago, the county also acquired 84 acres, a large house and pole sheds from Wells-Fargo Bank.

MRC Standings

Tigers Sweep Giants; Win 3 of 5 Matches at Chanhassen Tourney by Dan Ruud The Belle Plaine High School volleyball team tightened its grip atop the Minnesota River Conference standings with another straight-set victory over Le Sueur-Henderson this season, the latest coming Thursday night in the Valley of the Giant. It was a busy day on Saturday as the Tigers played five matches, winning three of them against some top competition in a tournament at Chanhassen. Belle Plaine was scheduled to host New Prague in a nonconference contest Tuesday after this edition of the Herald went to press. The Tigers will return to MRC play against Tri-City United 7:15 p.m. this Thursday at the BPHS gym. Class 3A powerhouse Chaska will visit Belle Plaine for a nonconference match 7:15 p.m. next Tuesday. Tigers 3, LS-H 0 Belle Plaine did not have to spill a lot of sweat in this onesided contest as it quickly disposed of the Giants by scores of 25-14, 25-14, 25-12 last Tuesday night in Le Sueur. “The team was outstanding. We were in control of the match all night, keeping LS-H on their toes with our balanced offense,” said Tigers coach Cassie Wolpern. “Our ball control was the best it’s been all season, thanks to the focus and efforts of our defenders. This match felt like a turning point for us in regards to improving our consistency. Our level of play was high from the get-go and didn’t fluctuate much throughout the night. It

was a great match leading into the weekend.” Marykay Nasby had 15 kills and seven digs for Belle Plaine, while teammate Mariena Hayden added 12 kills and 12 digs. The latter also had three ace serves. Other leaders in the kills department for the Tigers were Amara Meyer (10), Emily Vinkemeier (4), Amelia Kahle (2) and Devin Lehman (2). McKenzie Koepp and Kaylee Hentges both had one. Lehman had 44 set assists and seven digs, and Danielle Taylor had four ace serves and eight digs. Chanhassen Tournament The Tigers traveled to Chanhassen High School on Saturday and came away with three victories in five matches. “We had a great experience at the Chanhassen tournament for our first time,” Wolpern said. “We played five matches in seven hours and took advantage of the opportunity to compete against some great AAA teams.” Belle Plaine started the day with an intense match against Delano, the eventual champions, falling 22-25, 22-25. The Tigers bounced back quickly with a win over Holy Family 25-21, 25-15. They then lost to Buffalo 18-25, 25-23, 19-21 before defeating Totino-Grace in another three-setter 23-25, 25-16, 15-10. They concluded the day by beating Tartan 25-7, 25-16. “It was a good day of volleyball. We played at a consistent, high level, resulting in new goals to push us to the next lev-

el . . . It appears we’re on our way to peaking at the right time of the season. We’re excited for October,” Wolpern said. Hayden had 54 kills in the tournament, followed by Nasby with 41 and Meyer 29. Lehman had 129 set assists and Johnson had 44 digs. 2013 BPHS Volleyball Schedule Aug. 27 vs. LS-H W 3-0 Sept. 3 vs. Jordan W 3-0 Sept. 5 vs. W-M W 3-0 Sept. 9 at TCU W 3-0 Sept. 12 vs. S.E.

I am very proud of this team. The fact that we had only four returning letterwinners and eight

Minnesota’s Pheasant Population Down 29% A long winter followed by a cold, wet spring contributed to a significant decrease in Minnesota’s pheasant count, which declined 29 percent from 2012, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR). “Minnesota’s results reflect what we’re seeing in other states,” said Rachel Curtis, DNR wildlife research biologist. “South Dakota had a 64 percent decrease in its brood survey. North Dakota’s mostrecent rooster crowing count is down 11 percent from last year. And Iowa reported a 19 percent decrease in its August roadside count.” Minnesota’s 2013 pheasant index is 64 percent below the 10-year average and 72 percent below the long-term average. Pheasant hunters still are expected to harvest about 246,000 roosters this season, which opens Oct. 12. That would be down 44,000 from last year’s

estimate and is less than half the number of pheasants taken during the 2005-2008 seasons when hunting was exceptionally good. The highest pheasant counts were in the southwest region, where observers reported 51 birds per 100 miles of survey driven. Hunters should find good harvest opportunities in west-central, east-central and south-central Minnesota. “Pheasant populations respond to habitat abundance and changes in weather,” Curtis said. “The steady downward trend in Minnesota’s pheasant population during the past several years is primarily due to habitat loss. Weather has caused minor fluctuations.” The most important habitat for pheasants is grassland that remains undisturbed during the nesting season. Protected grasslands account for about 6 percent of the state’s pheasant range.

session, which began 80 yards from the end zone they needed to get into. The Tigers moved in that direction, mainly on short passes, and with 44 seconds left to play, found themselves in a fourth and 4 situation 15 yards short of their destination. Narveson’s pass to near the goal line was broken up and the Crusaders began to celebrate a triumphant homecoming. However, following a consultation by the officials, one of several during the game, Mayer Lutheran was called for defensive holding and the Tigers had new life with a first and goal at the 8 yard line and 40 seconds left. A couple of plays later, Dauwalter’s 2-yard TD burst and Buesgens’ extra-point boot made it 35-31 with 14 seconds to play. When those too few seconds elapsed, Mayer Lutheran dropped to 2-2 in the MRC (3-2 overall). “The boys showed tremendous character by fighting till the last seconds of the game,” said Belle Plaine coach Justin Johnston. “It was an emotional, hard-fought game. Offensively, our big plays are probably what people remember, but the final drive was what was most impressive. To go 80 yards in the final minutes to punch in the winning touchdown showed our team’s no-quit attitude. “Defensively, again the effort in the second half was the difference, when we turned the ball over at our own 30 and the defense held them to a field goal was a defining moment and again showed the resolve of our kids,” Johnston continued. The Tigers had 450 yards of offense (271 passing and 179 rushing). The Crusaders had

451 yards (226 passing and 225 rushing). Narveson completed 11 of 24 passes for 271 yards and three touchdowns. He was intercepted once. He also had a team-high 71 yards rushing on 12 attempts. Emmers had four receptions for 123 yards and two TDs. Holmbeck had one catch good for 78 yards and a TD, while Derek Dahlke had five grabs for 63 yards. Sam Karl caught one pass for 7 yards. Joining Narveson as rushing leaders for Belle Plaine were Emmers (47 yards), Dauwalter (18 yards and two TDs), Ben Stier (17 yards) and Dillon Haefner (15 yards). Dahlke added 9 yards and Holmbeck 2. The tackling leaders for the Tigers were Mitch Nelson (14), Stier (11), Dahlke (11), Zack Bahr (10), Dauwalter (7), Schultz (7), Josh Spellman (6), Prochaska (5), Emmers (4), Narveson (3), Brady Johnson (2) and Holmbeck (2). Adding one apiece were Taylor Ponath, Buesgens, Jake Hartmann, Kincade Retzer and Cameron Lark, the latter of whom also had an interception. Mayer Lutheran was led offensively by Buttenhoff (226 yards and four TDs passing), Gruenhagen (six catches for 204 yards and two TDs) and Burfeind (22 carries for 120 yards). 2013 BPHS Football Schedule Aug. 29 vs. N.

Belle Plaine Wins MRC by Dan Ruud The Belle Plaine High School tennis team captured its first Minnesota River Conference championship since 2006 when it defeated two-time defending champion Jordan last Tuesday at the Belle Plaine courts. On Thursday, the Tigers wrapped up the regular season and improved to 7-1 in the MRC when they defeated Le Sueur-Henderson by the same 4-3 score. Although the outright conference crown is in hand for 2013, the Tigers are not done with Jordan yet as they will meet in the quarterfinals of the Section 2A Team Tournament. NOTE: The Tigers got the No. 4 seed and will host the No. 5 seed Jaguars 4 p.m. today (Wednesday) at the Belle Plaine Athletic Complex. The match was previously scheduled for Thursday but was moved up to Wednesday due to weather concerns on Thursday. The winner will likely run into No. 1 seed United South Central in the section semifinals at Gustavus Adolphus College’s Swanson Center 9 a.m. next Monday. The only way USC would not be the opponent is if the winner of the play-in match between No. 8 seed Le SueurHenderson and No. 9 Maple River was to topple the Rebels, which is not likely. The lower bracket of the section quarterfinals on Thursday has No. 2 seed Blue Earth Area at home against No. 7 Tri-City United and No. 3 St. Peter hosting No. 6 Sibley East. Those winners will meet in the semifinals 9 a.m. next Monday at Swanson Center. The two semifinal winners will meet for the right to advance to the state Class 1A team tournament. The top three seeds in the section – USC, Blue Earth Area and St. Peter – all defeated Belle Plaine convincingly during the regular season. The combined score of those matches was 19-2. Tigers 4, Jordan 3 Belle Plaine already had a share of the conference title and the only one left with a mathematical chance to share it with the Tigers was Jordan, the two-time defending MRC titleholders. But Belle Plaine’s 4-3 victory dropped the visitors three games behind the Tigers with only one left to play. It was Belle Plaine’s first conference title since it won backto-back championships in 2005 and 2006. Belle Plaine got wins from three of its four singles players and one doubles team. In singles, Jane Schneider bested Victoria Read 6-4, 6-2, Ireland Lambrecht defeated Paige Moran 6-2, 6-1 and Grace Olson beat Katherine Ichinose 6-1, 6-4. In doubles, the duo of Rachel Schroers and Kate Schmit downed Sam Kulas and Nicole Samuelson 6-0, 7-6. The Tigers’ Abby Brandt and Savanna Schatz lost in three sets, while Megan Gavin and Bailey Gavin lost in two sets. Ashley Morrison dropped her No. 1 singles match to Rachel Menke in two sets. Tigers 4, LS-H 3 Five of Belle Plaine’s seven wins in the MRC this year were by the closest possible margin (4-3). Two of those came against the Giants. As was the case against Jordan, the Tigers got wins from their No. 2, 3 and 4 singles players,

Tigers Outlast Crusaders by Dan Ruud The Belle Plaine High School football team left a big nasty paw print on Mayer Lutheran’s homecoming slate Friday night when Gavin Dauwalter stomped into the end zone from 2 yards out with 14 seconds to play to give the Tigers a dramatic 3531 come-from-behind victory. The win improved Belle Plaine to 4-0 in the Minnesota River Conference, 5-0 overall. Belle Plaine entered the game ranked No. 2 in the state Class 3A poll.

The following Wednesday (Oct. 16), Belle Plaine will close the regular season at unbeaten TriCity United in what could determine the Minnesota River Conference championship and a No. 1 seed in the section tournament. Tigers 35, Mayer Luth. 31 Mayer Lutheran’s public address announcer summed it up well when he described Friday night’s first quarter as that of an Arena Football League game. One huge play after another by both teams kept the scoreboard operator busy as the two teams combined for 28 points in the first nine minutes of play. Belle Plaine got the ball to begin the game and drove from its own 20 yard line to the Mayer Lutheran 4 before being stopped on downs. The Crusaders, celebrating

homecoming, answered a couple of plays later when quarterback Cole Buttenhoff dumped a short pass over the middle to Anthony Gruenhagen, who then raced some 80 yards to the end zone. The extra-point kick was good and the home team led 7-0 with 6:49 left in the first quarter. It took Belle Plaine about a minute to get even as Chris Holmbeck caught a short pass form quarterback Luke Narveson on third-and-19 and outraced the Crusaders secondary down the right sideline for a 78-yard scoring play. Jordan Buesgens’ extra-point kick was good and the scored was knotted 7-7 with 5:42 left in the opening quarter. Mayer Lutheran took the lead right back when another big catch and run play from Buttenhoff to Gruenhagen went 50 yards for a TD. Again, the extra-point kick sailed through the uprights and it was 14-7 with 3:27 left in the first quarter. Twenty-one seconds of game clock later, Narveson hooked up with Chase Emmers on a 60-yard scoring play and Buesgens’ extra-point kick made it 14-14 with 3:06 still left in the first quarter. Again, the game did not remain tied for long as the Crusaders capped a 10-play, 69yard drive with an 11-yard scoring toss from Buttenhoff to Joel Burfeind. The point-after kick made it 21-14 with 9:59 left in the second quarter. The Tigers moved to the Crusaders 11 yard line on their next possession but an interception wiped out the drive. After an exchange of possessions, a long field goal attempt by Mayer Lutheran’s Chad Anenson was no good and the half came to a close. The Crusaders got the ball to begin the third quarter but an interception by lineman Jake Schultz near the line-of-scrimmage set Belle Plaine up at the Mayer Lutheran 29 yard line. Several plays later, Dauwalter scored on an 11-yard run. Buesgens’ extra-point try was no good and the Crusaders still led 21-20 with 6:50 left in the

third quarter. Mayer Lutheran got back into Belle Plaine territory on its next possession but was stopped on downs. The Tigers took over on their own 41 yard line, and a couple of plays later, Narveson and Emmers hooked up on another long TD play, this one for 44 yards. Dauwalter powered into the end zone for the two-point conversion and Belle Plaine had its first lead of the night at 28-21 with 2:28 left in the third quarter. Things looked even better for the Tigers when Blayne Prochaska recovered a fumble at the Mayer Lutheran 30 yard line. But Belle Plaine was not able to pick up a first down and the Crusaders regained possession at their own 30. From there, Mayer Lutheran commenced a 12-play scoring drive punctuated by a 2-yard scoring toss from Buttenhoff to Taylor Otterstatter. Anenson drilled his fourth extra-point kick of the night to make it 28-28 with 6:49 left in the game. The Tigers fumbled the ball away on the first play from scrimmage on their next possession, setting Mayer Lutheran up at the Belle Plaine 34 yard line. The Tigers’ defense did not allow a first down but Anenson, one of the best kickers in the MRC, booted a 31-yard field goal to give his team a 31-28 lead with 3:54 left in the game. Belle Plaine’s unbeaten streak was on the line on its next pos-

B.P. Man Running Marathon to Keep Promise, Meet his Goal

Pumpkin Art Miles Farmer-Lies tried his young hand at painting pumpkins during Saturday’s fall festival at Prairie Oaks Institute on West South Street in Belle Plaine. The event was intended as a celebration of the fall harvest with activities and games for children and families, a silent auction, good food, entertainment and crafts. Strong winds and the threat of a downpour limited the participation at the festival.

An Inspiring Message Sarah Bazey, the reigning Mrs. Minnesota International, presented her story of overcoming tragedy to members of the Belle Plaine Rotary Club and residents of Kingsway Retirement Living Wednesday (Sept. 25) at Kingsway. In 1994, she was the owner of two successful businesses and skated professionally. That summer, the helicopter she was a passenger in crashed. One person was killed in the crash. Her body covered in jet fuel, Bazey endured third-degree burns to 40 percent of her body. She endured several surgeries and therapies to replace her burned skin. Eventually, Bazey returned to the pageant stage in 2010 and finished as third runner-up to Mrs. United States. Today, Bazey serves as vice president of the Phoenix Society’s National Board of Trustees. The society is dedicated to empowering burn survivors through peer support programs, education and advocacy.

He hadn’t planned to enter this year’s Twin Cities Marathon and later agreed to run only to accompany his sister on her first effort. But when she backed out, Quin Anderson found himself with a choice to make. Rather than back out himself, the Belle Plaine man decided his last marathon would be his best. Anderson, 37, will be among the thousands of runners leaving the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome Sunday morning for a 26.2-mile run through Minneapolis, across the river to St. Paul, up Summit Avenue to John Ireland Boulevard and the finish line. Along the way, thousands of fans will cheer on the runners. Eight runners from Belle Plaine registered for the marathon. Anderson is looking forward to every step of the run, even after those steps become painful and test his will to continue. He has three marathons to his credit. He has completed Grandma’s Marathon in Duluth in 2010 and 2011 and the Twin Cities Marathon last year. His best time came two years ago at Grandma’s. He finished in 4 hours, 3 minutes. Last year, Anderson finished Twin Cities Marathon in 4 hours and 32 minutes, a time that disappointed his competitive spirit. He expected the 2012 Twin Cities Marathon would be his last marathon. The time demands of the training and the physical toll, Anderson was ready to walk away from running the long run and focus on shorter races and run just for the enjoyment. But then his sister, Leah, caught the running bug. She and her husband were in Boston for the Boston Marathon last spring. They had left the finish line about a half-hour before the explosion that killed spectators and led to a massive manhunt. “They were on a brewery tour when all that happened,� Anderson said. Leah, who like her brother grew up on a hobby farm north of Belle Plaine in Hancock Township, wanted to try a marathon and wanted her older brother to run with her. Quin had promised he’d accompany her on her first marathon. He wouldn’t have minded if she’d forgotten her older brother’s promise. She didn’t.

‘He can Run With Me’

����� ������ �� ���� ���� ����

“Misery loves company,� she said. Leah didn’t participate in sports when she went to high school at Minnesota Valley Lutheran High School in New Ulm. “If I have to train, he can run with me.� Anderson figured a first-time marathoner would require about five hours to finish the race. He figured he could handle the training running at that pace would require. “I guess I’m gullible enough. She’s always gotten her way,� he said. “It was going to be a nice, easy training season.� Anderson admits he’s never been good at turning down his sister’s requests. But last spring, several weeks before she and Quin expected to begin their formal training programs, Leah (Anderson) Steidl and her husband found out they were expecting their first child, a daughter they expect will arrive in early-January. “I’m seven months pregnant. It wouldn’t be fun,� she said. The couple lives in northeast Minneapolis. “I don’t think I’ll be running a marathon.� She has run shorter events before. Steidl and Anderson ran in the 2012 Bar-B-Q Days Bull Run. But rather than give up, Anderson decided he had some unfinished business to address. He was so disappointed with his performance in 2012, there would be one more serious effort at a personal-best time. Despite his easy-going demeanor, Anderson has a competitive side. He ran cross-country and track at a seminary-preparatory school in Wisconsin and finished third in the state in the 100-meter dash. Anderson has set his goal Sunday at a sub-4 hour time. He expects his last marathon will be his best. He’ll settle for five and 10-kilometer runs and other fun runs. There won’t be a fifth marathon, unless, he concedes, Leah needs someone to run with her next year and asks her big brother to keep his promise. “I’ve learned never to say never,� he said.

Quin Anderson of Belle Plaine is aiming at a personal-best time -- four hours or better -- in Sunday’s Twin Cities Marathon. The poor showing in 2012 was the result, Anderson admits, of not sticking to the pre-established training regimen. “I got lazy,� he said. He didn’t do enough of the workouts dedicated to increasing speed and endurance. The speed runs called for four to six mile runs at a rapid pace and then slow down for a few minutes before returning to the faster pace. The endurance runs call for starting with shorter runs, say four or six miles, and increasing their length incrementally until reaching 22 miles in late-August. In early-September, runners training for the Twin Cities Marathon start to back off the number of miles they run, Anderson said. They log shorter runs through September. This week, he’s doing short runs. Sunday, he enjoyed an easy three-mile run to Blakeley and back. The other seven Belle Plaine runners who registered for the race include William Brueske, Anthony Cullen, Micheke Giles, Larry Pintozzi, Dawn Skluzacek, Neal Williamson and Audrey Zurn. Anderson is looking forward to Sunday and reporting to the Metrodome where he’ll find the corral from which he’ll begin the run. He’ll have to jog about 150 yards to reach the starting line triggering the beginning of his timed run. “It seems like forever,� he said. Anderson is focused on finishing in less than four hours. “It’s been bugging me all year. It’s draining,� he said. He knows the course will be lined with people cheering for the runners, offering encouragement to keep going. Anderson expects to feed off their energy. His wife, Sharon, their children and younger sister will all be there to cheer for Anderson as he crosses the line. He’s logged times just over seven minutes a mile during his training runs, a pace Anderson

hasn’t reached since he was in high school. With the cooler weather runners crave, he’s confident his goal will be met. “I’m so much better prepared this year,� Anderson said.
