NUMBER 44

Voters Will Decide New Half of Belle Plaine School Board

Working together, volunteers with the Belle Plaine Area Food Shelf, Thrivent Financial and Oak Crest Elementary School are starting a program to help provide healthy food and snacks for children in need over extended holiday breaks. Pictured above is Pat Ollhoff of the food shelf, Liann Hanson, Oak Crest principal, Karen Borresen-Berg, a Thrivent associate, and Laurel Miller, a para-professional at Oak Crest.

Backpack Program Aims to Help Needy Students Over Breaks

Pat Ollhoff, the operations manager at the Belle Plaine Food Shelf recalls a teenage boy stopping by the food shelf during a recent weekend. The family had almost no food in the house and the boy was looking for help. There was no school lunch breakfast or lunch program to provide the children with a healthy meal. In Belle Plaine’s public schools, just over one-fourth of students’ families qualify for free or reduced cost meal service, a number that’s slowly grown over the past five years. At Oak Crest Elemen-

tary School, that means about 130 of the school’s 500-plus students qualify for free or reduced price meals. While students needing healthy, balanced meals have access to the school district’s food service Monday through Friday, that service is obviously not available weekends and during extended holiday breaks, like Thanksgiving and over Christmas. Starting at Oak Crest Elementary, the Backpack Program will provide students and families in need with healthy food that will bridge the gap during extended holiday breaks. It will start this

year over the Thanksgiving and Christmas breaks. “Having enough food is just so basic,” said Liann Hanson, principal at Oak Crest Elementary School. She noted children who don’t have enough food are far less likely to succeed in school. With donated food collected via food drives run by the Oak Crest Student Council, school staff will discreetly provide students with food and healthy snacks for the breaks. Once the program is established, it can

School Board Reaches Tentative Agreements With Two Unions

Last Tuesday was a productive day for negotiators on the Belle Plaine School Board. The school district reached tentative agreements with the unions representing its teachers and support staff. Members of both unions will be reviewing the details of the proposed contracts this week. They’ll vote on them later this

week or next week. If approved by the two unions’ rank-and-file, the school board plans to include them on the agenda for a special meeting Nov. 11. Negotiators reached the agreement that evening after approximately 90 minutes of proposals and private discussions. The tentative contract agree-

State Berths on Line for Football, Volleyball Teams It’s possible the Belle Plaine High School football and volleyball teams could qualify for state tournament berths this week as both are No. 1 seeds in their respective tournaments and both won last week’s playoff match-ups convincingly. It’s been decades (if ever) that Belle Plaine qualified two teams for state in fall sports. Although the volleyball team has made it there on multiple occasions in recent years, the football Tigers have not been to state in 20 years. In the first round of the 1993 state playoffs, Belle Plaine loss to St. Cloud Cathedral on a cold and mixed-precipitation-filled night at Tiger Park in Belle Plaine. St. Cloud Cathedral went on to win its second-straight state championship that season, but like Belle Plaine, has not been back to the state tournament since that year. Coincidently, St. Cloud Cathedral, like Belle

Plaine, is one win away from breaking its 20-year drought. It will play Pierz for the Section 5AAA championship this Friday night in St. Cloud. The Tigers overwhelmed last year’s defending Class 3A state champion Blue Earth Area 33-7 in the Section 3AAA semifinals Saturday at the Belle Plaine Athletic Complex. Belle Plaine will host No. 2 seed Fairmont for the section title 7 p.m. this Friday. More about Saturday’s game against BEA and this Friday’s even bigger game against Fairmont appears inside this edition of the Herald. The Belle Plaine volleyball team, which swept Le SueurHenderson in the opening round Thursday night, was heavily favored to defeat Norwood Young America in the semifinals of the

It represents about $15.5 million in spending on salaries and benefits over the next two years. Details of the proposed pact include an additional $800 per cell on the steps (experience) and lanes (additional education) schedule in the first year and an additional 2 percent increase the second year. Teachers leading teams and groups in co-curricular activities will also see a wage increase – 2 percent the first year and 2½ percent the second year of the contract. The final financial piece of the proposed contract with the BPEA is a 3 percent increase in the district’s contribution to health care the first year of the agreement and 1½ percent increase in the contribution the second year of the deal. The final hurdle in contract language was the number of

Voters will provide the Belle Plaine School Board with a potentially distinctive different look Tuesday when they elect three new directors to the sixperson board. Votes can be cast Nov. 5 at the Belle Plaine Government Center, 218 Meridian Street N. in downtown Belle Plaine.

Pine City Girl, 8, Killed in Crash on Highway 169 Sunday A girl from Pine City, Minn., was killed in a crash along Highway 169 near Blakeley Trail Sunday just after 2 p.m. Laura Maloney was a passenger in a 2008 Ford Super Duty truck driven by Walter Grewe of Brooklyn Park. They were heading north on Highway 169 when Grewe, 62, had to slow down quickly to avoid a 2008 Honda Civic that had slowed down, according to the Minnesota State Patrol. The truck rear-ended the Honda driven by a Mankato man, Timothy Adams, 48. Grewe lost control of the truck

and entered the ditch. The horse trailer the Ford Super Duty was towing landed on the truck. The girl’s mother, 35-year-old Erin Maloney of Pine City, was also a passenger in the truck. Like Grewe, she suffered nonlife-threatening injuries in the crash, according to the state patrol. The crash and rescue efforts prompted the Minnesota State Patrol, Belle Plaine police and firefighters to close Highway 169 and reroute traffic through Blakeley and Belle Plaine for over three hours.

Business Trick-or-Treat Thursday The Belle Plaine Chamber of Commerce will hold its annual Halloween Business Trick-orTreat this Thursday from 3-5 p.m. Many downtown businesses and a number of others throughout the community are participating, just look for the pumpkin cutout in the window. Also participating is The Lutheran Home, where residents from 3-5 p.m. will gather in a circle to hand out treats in the home’s Chapel. Participants can enter through The Lutheran Home’s main entrance.

Public School Halloween Events

Chatfield Elementary School students will hold their annual parade of costumed participants at the “high school” gym starting at 2 p.m. Thursday. The event is open to the public and doors will open at 1:35 p.m. Oak Crest Elementary School is not having a costume parade this year. Instead, each class will hold its own Halloween observance in the classroom. Belle Plaine High School’s annual Halloween Dance at the school was held this past Friday night.

First Presbyterian Church Sloppy Joe Dinner

First Presbyterian Church on West Main Street downtown will hold its third annual Halloween observance from 4-6 p.m. this Thursday. The event will include trick-or-treats and a sloppy joe dinner.

Klatts Observe 25 Years Of Service to The Lutheran Home Association

Oct. 24 marked Michael Klatt’s 25th year of service to The Lutheran Home Association (TLHA). Starting as a direct care worker in 1988, Klatt began his career in an entry-level position and gained invaluable experience and knowledge that would help form his leadership style. He was promoted to different roles with increasing responsibility and then appointed president and CEO in 1997. A natural visionary, Klatt played a significant role in growing TLHA from an organization that served 200 residents on one campus to an organization with five campuses serving almost 1,000 residents. He has championed the use of technology on the campuses and The Lutheran Home: Belle Plaine was one of the first nursing homes in Minnesota to adopt electronic charting while Kingsway Retirement Living employs sensor monitoring technology in the assisted living community. Klatt also created the Office of Mission Advancement, the fund-raising arm of the organization, and the program became self-sufficient in three years and met national standards in four years. Under his direction, TLHA also incorporated a new ministry, Jesus Cares Ministries (JCM). JCM assists congregations in reaching out to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, their families and communities. With over 100 satellite locations nationwide, each program encourages Bible studies, worship and fellowship opportunities. With a servant leadership style, Klatt has built a stable, highperforming organization by putting people first in a Christcentered environment. Respect, excellence in customer service and continuous improvement are values he expects of his team and also delivers himself. Through his stewardship and commitment to the care of the soul, Klatt leads by example

Observing History and Future Michael and Shari Klatt as a humble servant doing the Lord’s work. Klatt is also a strong influence in the health care industry and the community-at-large. He is a member of the American Association of Homes and Services for the Aging, Association of Fund-raising Professionals, Association of Residential Resources in Minnesota, Aging Services of Minnesota (ASM) and Wisconsin Heath Care Association. He serves on the board for Healthsense Care Alliance, Great Plains Lutheran High School (Watertown, SD) and previously served on the board of directors for ASM. In 2006, Gov. Tim Pawlenty

Donald W. Borchardt

Donald W. Borchardt, 83, with his loving family present at his side, passed away peacefully and entered God’s arms the morning of Wednesday, October 23, 2013, at his home in Prior Lake. Celebration of Life Service was on Monday, October 28 at 11 a.m., with visitation two hours prior all at Fish Lake Immanuel Lutheran Church, 20200 Fairlawn Avenue, Prior Lake. Pastor Brent Parrish presided. Don was laid to rest next to his triplet brother, Delbert at St. Paul’s Lutheran Cemetery in Prior Lake. Services were with Ballard-Sunder Funeral Home and Cremation Services, Prior Lake Chapel. Otto and Clara (Klingberg) Borchardt proudly announced the birth of Donald William, born on the family farm, on January 2, 1930, in Spring Lake Township. His birth was quite unique, for Don was the oldest of triplets. Don, Delbert and Doris weighed a combined total of 5 pounds.They stayed warm packed in cotton and laid in shoe boxes, on top of the oven door. Living during the depression, they were blessed to have survived. As a young boy, Don walked to school ‘both ways up hill,’ to Fish Lake Immanuel Lutheran Church. He later attended District 17. When it came to high school, Don drove the students to Shakopee High School, attended school and drove the students back home. He graduated from Shakopee in 1949. After high school he helped his dad and uncle on their farms. Most of Don’s career was spent working as a carpenter for Sears. For over 20 years, he also had a small business sharpening saw blades. Life became complete for Don when he married the girl next door, Verna Mae Busse, on September 11, 1954, at St.

Stop N’ Shop FALL Boutique

Paul’s Lutheran Church, in Prior Lake. They were blessed with two daughters, Debbie and Lori. As a family, they treasured the annual vacations up north, where their days were spent fishing. Later in life, Don made many trips to Alaska, hoping to catch that prize fish. He also liked to deer hunt as well. As a couple, Don and Verna traveled to all 50 states, Canada and set sail on a cruise in the Caribbean. For 20 years, Don was a member of the Prior Lake Volunteer Fire Department, with serving as assistant chief for two years. He was also a member of the Prior Lake City Council and served two years as treasurer for the City of Prior Lake. A faithful servant of the Lord, Don was an active member of the Fish Lake Immanuel Lutheran Church, as an elder and a secretary. Don was a compassionate and loving husband, dad, grandpa, great-grandpa and brother. He had this soft heart and happy personality, which will be forever missed. He will be deeply missed and remembered always by those who loved him, wife, Verna of Prior Lake; children, Debbie (Stan) Schultz of Park Rapids, Lori (Chuck) Marquardt of Soldotna, Alaska; grandchildren, Jamie Schultz, Derek (Shauna) Schultz, Josh Marquardt, Nick Marquardt; great-grandchildren, Casey and Carter Schultz; sisters, Lois Will of Shakopee, Phyllis Rowe of Prior Lake, Doris Malz of Prior Lake; sister-in-law, Carol Thorsfeldt of Prior Lake; and other relatives and devoted friends.

Don’s grandson, Derek Schultz was the urn bearer, with the rest of the grandchildren and greatgrandchildren being honorary bearers.

USDA Program Offers Single-Family Home Loans The USDA Rural Development Agency is currently accepting applications for loans available to low-income families to buy, build, rehabilitate or improve homes located in rural communities with a population of 20,000 or less. The maximum loan limits for the counties served throughout the region, which includes Scott County, range from $161,800 in Faribault County to $193,800 in Goodhue County. Approval for the maximum amount is based on household income and monthly debt obligations. No down payment is required and a portion of the loan closing costs may be included into the loan. The applicant must be unable to obtain the needed credit from another lending source, have an acceptable credit history, meet income guidelines, have repay-

ment capacity to service any existing obligations and the home loan payment, be without adequate housing, be a United States citizen or a non-citizen legally admitted for permanent residence and have the ability to personally occupy the home on a permanent basis. Funding is based upon an annual appropriation. Loans may be made for up to 100 percent of the appraised value of the home. The Rural Development loan may be subsidized based on financial need in order to show repayment capacity. The repayment period of the loan is typically 33 years. For information, contact the USDA, Rural Development office at 1408 21st Ave NW #3, Austin, MN 55912. (507-4378247, ext. 4.). Information is also available at www.rurdev. usda.gov/mn.

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.

Golf Zone Acquired for New Highway 101 River Crossing Carver County has acquired a business to make space for the expanded Highway 101 bridge and road project between Shakopee and Chanhassen. The county board agreed to a $748,570 settlement with the owners of Golf Zone (Rain Snow or Shine Golf) on County Road 61 near the Highway 101County Road 61 Y. The business will be part of the right-of-way for the expanded road project. The amount reflects the land and impact the project will have on the business in the years to come.

The county is acquiring less than one acre for a permanent easement for drainage and utilities and 2.1 acres as a temporary easement. The construction will completely include the par-three and mini courses, the Chaska Herald recently reported. The project will include a new four-lane roadway spanning 4,100 feet elevated above the floodplain. Bids are due next month. Work begins in January of 2014 and should run through the fall of 2015.

Green Isle City Council OKs Sale of 43 Vacant Lots to Developers

Although the timing of the future of 43 vacant residential lots is yet to be determined, they will soon be back in private ownership and back on the open market in Green Isle. Last Tuesday (Oct. 22) week, the city council formally approved the sale of the lots to developers Bill Feldman and Norm Beckman for $6,000 per lot. The pair was the high bidder for the lots from the start, but the council initially rejected their offer of $5,500 per lot after the bids were opened in a closed session Monday (Oct. 21) and the city told the pair they needed to up their bid. The following forming, Feldman and Beckman upped their bid for the lots by $500 apiece. The $258,000 the city will receive from the sale will be used to reduce the approximately $663,000 Green Isle still owes on the bonds that funded installation of streets, sewer and water lines when the developments were created about a decade ago. The city hoped to sell the lots for at least the value of the assessments against the bonds, about $15,400 per lot. The remaining money for the bonds – about $405,000 – will likely come from money levied from city taxpayers over the

next few years, said Bert Panning, the city’s clerk-treasurer. If Green Isle begins levying for the remaining $405,000 in 2014, it will take an additional 2 percent annual increase to cover the debt by the time the bonds come due in 2017, said Mayor Dale ZumBerge. Feldman and Beckman plan to begin marketing the 43 lots as soon as possible. They range from about 9,400 square feet on Gloria Drive to 27,000 square feet (almost 2/3 of an acre) on Erin Circle. The two men developed the lots in Lake Erin Estates just east of Irish Yard, the baseball park. Unlike Rosemount Development, which originally developed eight Green Isle additions, Feldman and Beckman never sought city assistance.

As I went through the process of looking for something library oriented and specific to this week or day, it became more obvious that Halloween themed things seem to dominate the week. For the most part, it is all of the obvious stuff. There were articles about the popular costumes and various articles about hauntings. About the only fresh thing I ran into is that some people consider October to be “Haunted Refrigerator Night”. It is a night to empty your refrigerator, clean it and then evaluate all of the items that you took out before you consider returning them to the refrigerator. I must admit that I have occasionally found something scary in a container that had worked its way to the back of the refrigerator. The near-Halloween timing might ‘Two Good Guys’ be correct. I can hear you asking “What does this have to do with “These are two good guys,” the library”.

and reset the price. Feldman expects the state of the recovering housing market and the cost of the 43 lots he and his partner just bought, will bring the price of the Lake Erin Estates lots down. “We just feel it’s a good area for people. We wish there was more commercial, but Green Isle’s a good area and we think it’s got a future.” The city received three sealed bids on the 43 vacant lots Rosemount Development originally developed between 2002 and 2007. The other two bids were from Ann Tracy-Lopez and Kathleen Tracy-Lopez, Green Isle natives currently living in Arizona. Eyeing potential retirement homes, they offered $2,001 for three lots on land their family once farmed. Rosemount walked away from the lots when the residential housing market collapsed in 2008, allowing to go to foreclosure. The city recently acquired them from Sibley County. ZumBerge said Feldman and Beckman buying all 43 lots will generate about $15,000 a year in property tax revenue. More importantly, it spares the city trying to sell them individually. “I wouldn’t live to see them all sold,” he said.

were returned for insufficient funds in the two accounts. The checks for the rented property were far from the only allegedly worthless checks attributed to O’Hara. Police learned that between Oct. 26, 2011 and Nov. 22, 2011, O’Hara allegedly wrote 21 worthless checks on the KleinBank account cumulatively worth over $4,326. The account was closed Nov. 25, 2011. Police spoke with O’Hara regarding the worthless checks. He told them the landowner, the criminal charge states, the property owner could take him to court if he owned him money.

BELLE PLAINE HERALD, BELLE PLAINE, MINNESOTA

Thirty Years Ago This Week

The Four Teachers Not just the students but the teachers as well dressed for Halloween on Monday, Oct. 31, 1983 at Belle Plaine Elementary School. Among them were the storybook characters, from left, Goldilocks, Mama Bear, Baby Bear and Papa Bear. Salary increases for the city’s non-union employees were agreed upon by the Belle Plaine City Council. The increases ranged from 5 to 11 percent. The highest paid employees, Public Works Superintendent Pat Fogarty and Police Chief Rod Peddycoart, were given a 5 percent increase, which amounted to $1,080 per year, going from $21,600 to $22,680. The Minnesota Waste Management Board and three groups of residents active in the board’s consideration of a candidate hazardous waste disposal site in Carver County reached an agreement that would allow tests and evaluations of the site while providing for special board consideration and support of landowner views and concerns. At its Oct. 27 meeting at the State Capitol in St. Paul, the Waste Management Board became the fourth party involved in the dispute over testing of the site to approve a joint agreement hammered out by representatives of the board and citizens’ groups. Judge Francis J. Connolly, 84, of Shakopee, died Nov. 1 at St. Francis Regional Medical Center. He was educated in Belle Plaine schools and was for a time employed by the State Bank of Belle Plaine until he was stricken with tuberculosis in 1925. He made a complete recovery from the disease and was elected Scott County probate judge in 1929. He served on the judge’s bench in Scott County for 50 years and was regarded as one of the most knowledgeable judges in the state on probate law. However, he never went to law school and was one of the last of the state judges without a law degree. Wayne Ediger, one of the top Charolais breeders in the state, developed a champion bull called “Double H Pathfinder,” which took a host of top prizes that summer and fall, including the Minnesota State Summer Show. The Belle Plaine High School football team ran into a tough and fired up Montgomery squad in the 1983 season finale and lost 28-0. The victory enabled Montgomery to finish in a two-way tie for first place with Jordan in the Minnesota River Conference. The Tigers finished in fifth place with a record of 3-4. They were 5-4 overall. Jeff Larson led the offense against Montgomery with 52 yards. It was the first conference game he was held under

100 yards. He finished the year with 1,016 yards in the conference and 1,131 overall. The Tiger volleyball team came from behind to defeat Cleveland and advance to the District 13 semifinals. Lori Farrar had 16 service points for Belle Plaine and Laurie Wolpern had 14 kills. She also had five blocks. Up next for the Tigers in the semifinals would be No. 1 seed and defending district champion Le Center. Belle Plaine’s head football coach the past 19 years, Roy Henderson, submitted his resignation. He planned to continue his teaching career here but drop the football duties. During his coaching career in Belle Plaine, he had 101 wins, 66 losses and three ties. He coached four conference champions – ‘70, ‘78, ‘79 and ‘80, and two state playoff teams in ‘77 and ‘79. He coached 57 allconference players and two allstaters – Denny Riesgraf and Bruce Volek.

60 Years Ago (1953)

Most unexpected was the death of Harry E. Plantz. He was at work in a gravel pit near St. Louis Park, operating a dragline, when stricken with a heart attack. He was 53 years old. Mrs. Earl Johnson, Donald Olson and LeRoy Koepp were still hospitalized following the previous week’s head-on automobile collision. The other involved victim of the accident, Earl Johnson, was buried at East Union Cemetery. A surprise birthday party was given Mrs. Joe Zeiher at her home in Jessenland. A blue-wing teal banded on each leg in Manitoba, Canada, was shot by Edward Young in a wild rice slough in south Le Sueur County on the opening of the duck hunting season. Miss Betty Lou Devine, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. William Devine of Blakeley, and John Murphy, son of Mr. and Mrs. Daniel Murphy of Faxon, were united in marriage at Sacred Heart Church. Mr. and Mrs. William Domras, Mr. and Mrs. Chas. Gebhardt and Mr. and Mrs. Marvin Gebhardt attended the funeral at Lester Prairie of their nephew and cousin, Loren Gebhardt, 18, who was fatally injured in an automobile accident. Relatives and friends helped Fred Trost celebrate his 80th

birthday at his home. Life ended quietly, although unexpectedly, for John Patrick Connolly, 42, at his home in Belle Plaine. He had been in poor health for several years. Manral Jahns met with a tractor accident while working at his farm. The tractor was tipped over onto him for a couple of hours. He was at the New Prague hospital with broken arm, shoulder and ribs, and other injuries. The month of October came through to the end with a record of exceptionally fine, although dry, weather. Only one day did the mercury reach the freezing mark with a reading of 30. The children of Mr. and Mrs. Peter Melchior entertained at a candlelight buffet supper at the home of their son Edward. The occasion was Mr. and Mrs. Melchior’s 40th wedding anniversary. The Trinity congregation met to discuss the call that Pastor Radtke received to serve Zion Lutheran Church of Monroe, Mich. After many hours of discussion, the congregation reluctantly granted Pastor Radtke a peaceful release to labor in this new field. It was a Halloween without a single act of destructiveness, not even a soaped window or auto. Miss Margaret Egan and Lloyd Doheny of Belle Plaine exchanged marriage vows at St. Rose of Lima Catholic Church, St. Paul. Cyril W. Maxa of New Market was appointed chief deputy sheriff of Scott County, according to an announcement made by Sheriff W.B. Schrieder. Le Sueur edged the Tigers 7-6 in the final game of the 1953 football season. The seniors who ended their playing for Belle Plaine were Dave Grosser, Tom Melchior, Lee Engfer, Lee Lynch, John McPartlan and Earl Olson. Jeanne Wilczek of Little Falls became the bride of Michael Plonski at Our Lady of the Lourdes Church, Little Falls. Our Northside turkey raisers were fewer in number that year

Police found Moran dead in his house on the 800 block of Prairie Street last Tuesday (Oct. 22) after receiving a report of an armed robbery. Shakopee police believe at least one of the two arrested men is a former acquaintance of the victim. The Shakopee Police Department is no longer looking for additional suspects associated with this incident, said Jeff Tate, chief of the Shakopee Police Department.

Dear Editor, In electing new school board members lets remember the most important part is an excellent education for our kids. My biggest concern is the low test scores compared to a town like New Prague. Our kids are asked to wake up 1 hour early to catch a school bus to sit in a lunchroom, or after school to sit in a lunchroom for 1 hour before going home. We need to find the funding to fix this big problem. Teenagers more than any age need that sleep and that sleep might be all they need to get those scores up. I will support any candidate that can fix this issue. I will pay a few more dollars in taxes to fix this problem. Our children deserve to be on the same playing field as other kids in nearby towns.  Douglas Sloan Belle Plaine, MN

Tigers Plow Over Blue Earth (continued from page 13)

Belle Plaine provided the first hint of things to come on its second possession when it put together a nice blend of runs and passes to drive 73 yards for the game’s first score, ending with a 3-yard TD run by Gavin Dauwalter. The extra-point kick was no good but the Tigers had drawn first blood with 2:46 left in the first quarter. Again, the teams exchanged punts – BEA twice and Belle Plaine once. It was already well into the second quarter before the Tigers got the ball back for a fourth time. They started from their own 47 yard line and moved all the way to the Bucs 1 yard line, where Dauwalter again carried the ball the rest of the way. The two-point try was no good but Belle Plaine had a 12-0 cushion with 4:42 left in the first half. The Tigers moved to inside the BEA 5 yard line in the final minute of the half but was stopped on downs and it stayed a 12-point lead heading into halftime. What questions about the outcome of the game remained at halftime were answered by the Tigers loud and clear in the third quarter as the contest quickly became a rout. After BEA went three and out to begin the third quarter, the Tigers’ Derek Dahlke had a long punt return, setting his team up 16 yards shy of the end zone. That led to a 3-yard touchdown run by quarterback Luke Narveson that made it 18-0 with 7:38 to play in the third quarter. Fifty-nine seconds of game clock later, Belle Plaine’s Zach Bahr scooped up a fumble and returned it nearly 60 yards for a TD. Narveson hooked up with receiver Brady Johnson for the two-point conversion and it was 26-0 with 6:39 left in the third quarter. It became 33-0 when running back Chris Holmbeck broke loose on a 30-yard scoring scamper with 36 seconds left in the third quarter. The only other score of the afternoon came on a 1-yard TD plunge by BEA’s David Franta late in the game, making the final 33-7. “Anytime you get a chance to knock off the defending state champs you have to play a great game and the kids stepped up and did that,� said Belle Plaine coach Justin Johnston. “All three phases of the game executed well, and the fun part is knowing we can still get better. “The offensive line did a great job of establishing the line of scrimmage,� Johnston continued. “Chris Holmbeck did an outstanding job of running downhill when he needed to and being patient and looking for cutbacks when he needed to. We have to do a better job this Friday of finishing drives and making sure we clean up the penalties. “Defensively, the effort was amazing and it was fun to see the kids flying around doing their jobs. It was an outstanding team effort led by Zach Bahr making two huge plays with the fumble recovery and an interception,� Johnston said. The Tigers had 320 yards of offense (202 rushing and 118 passing). No team or individual statistics were available for

Luke Dandurand and Danny McCann both had 8 yards on three and four carries, respectively. Narveson completed 10 of 15 passes for 118 yards. He had no interceptions. Dahlke had six catches for 78 yards, while Johnson caught two for 24 yards. Sam Karl and Chase Emmers both had one catch for 10 and 5 yards, respectively. Defensively, Bahr had a teamhigh 10 tackles and one interception to go along with his fumble recovery for a touchdown. Ben Stier had seven tackles and one interception. Nathan Herman had six tackles, followed by Dauwalter, Colton Hentges and Dahlke with four apiece. Emmers, Ben Wagner and Blayne Prochaska each added three tackles. Fairmont Next Top-seeded Belle Plaine will square off against No. 2 seed Fairmont in this Friday’s 7 p.m. Section 3AAA championship game in Belle Plaine. The Cardinals, who blew out the Tigers 48-26 in the first round of last year’s section tournament in Fairmont, are 7-2 this season following Saturday’s 30-6 drubbing of visiting Sibley East, a team Belle Plaine defeated 41-27 in Arlington on Sept. 13. The Tigers and Cardinals had two other common opponents this season – New Ulm and Blue Earth Area. Belle Plaine defeated New Ulm 34-13 in the season opener on Aug. 29 and the Cardinals routed that same team 42-0 just two weeks ago.

Three weeks ago, Fairmont defeated BEA 40-22 in Blue Earth. So on paper, Friday’s fight to go to the state playoffs is shaping up to be a close one. “This Friday is going to be a great challenge playing Fairmont and it’s one that I believe the kids are ready for,� Johnston said. More About Fairmont Fairmont generated almost 70 percent of its total yardage through the air during the regular season, which included 1,690 yards and 27 TDs via 199 passes. The Cardinals also rushed for 843 yards and six TDs on 219 attempts. Junior quarterback Spencer Chirpich completed an impressive 57 percent of his passes during the regular season – 111 of 194, good for 1,650 yards. He had five interceptions. Chirpich set Fairmont’s singlegame passing TD record with six, in addition to producing a career-best 271 yards, against BEA on Oct. 11 in Blue Earth. The Cardinals’ only two losses this year came back-to-back on Sept. 13 and 20. Both were at home – to Dassel-Cokato 31-21 and Waseca 43-27. Their regular season wins besides BEA and New Ulm were against Worthington 26-0, Marshall 15-2, St. Peter 21-18 and St. James 35-0. 2013 BPHS Football Schedule Aug. 29 vs. N.

Superintendent’s Update

By Dr. Kelly Smith

Congratulations to Janessa Meuleners for advancing to another State Cross Country meet this weekend in St. Olaf. Janessa placed fifth overall at the Section 2A meet in Montgomery on Thursday leading the girls team to a 5th place finish out of 19 teams. Our boys team finished 6th out of 20 teams. Great season everyone and good luck on Saturday, Janessa! Congratulations to our football and volleyball teams as well as they both advanced in the play-offs last week. The volleyball team beat LeSueur-Henderson by a score of 3-0 on Thursday and were playing again on Tuesday night in their next round. The Football team beat Blue Earth Area 33-7 on Saturday to advance to the Section finals this Friday night at 7 p.m. in Belle Plaine. Best wishes to both teams as you continue your drive to the state tournament! The Belle Plaine Schools and all Minnesota schools will be operating under the rules set forth in new legislation last spring as part of the World’s Best Workforce Act. The legislation directs each district to adopt a comprehensive, long-term strategic plan to support and improve teaching and learning that is aligned with creating the world’s best workforce. Minnesota schools strive to provide the best educational opportunities for all children. Providing an education to Minnesota youth that leads to creating the world’s best workforce is a goal that must be addressed early on in every child’s life. Students are more likely to reach this goal if they are ready for school upon entering kindergarten; achieve grade level literacy by grade three; graduate from high school and attain career and college readiness. In order to create the world’s best workforce, it is imperative that academic achievement gaps are closed among all racial and ethnic groups of students and between students living in poverty and not living in poverty as well as for English language learners and non-English language learners and for students who receive or do not receive special education. The comprehensive strategic plan that districts create is intended to serve as a foundational document to align educational initiatives that serve to ensure reaching intended student outcomes from pre-kindergarten to post high school graduation. Districts should consider and use existing plans, documents and strategies that may already be in place and/or are required by the Minnesota Department of Education (MDE), such as the Title I Plan, School Improvement Plans; School Readiness Program Plan; Local Literacy Plan; Student Transition Plan to College and Career Readiness; Plan for Educator Effectiveness, Q Comp, Alternative Delivery of Specialized Instructional Services, Continuous Improvement Monitoring Progress Plan, Achievement & Integration Plan. This district level strategic plan should illustrate how the various existing district plans fit together and serve as a blueprint to create a quality workforce equipped with necessary skills for the 21st century. The Belle Plaine Schools will be working on our World’s Best Workforce plan in the coming months. We are in a good position to move forward with this plan as we have an up to date Legal Notices strategic plan and goals already in place in addition to plans regarding our early learning programs and college & career readiness. Stay tuned for more information about this plan as it is developed. 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.

“It has really blossomed,” Hanson said. Thrivent Financial has also pledged to help. Nov. 14 – Give to the Max Day – people can pledge to help their favorite.

He can fill up his Trailblazer with $700 worth of food – about 2,800 pounds -- for individuals and families in need. The food shelf also benefits from donations from area grocers like Coborn’s, Ollhoff said. To start, school staff, Ollhoff and Borresen-Berg are trying to raise awareness of the need and the Backpack Program. “It’s really a good example of people coming together to help each other,” Borresen-Berg said.

Coalition, which includes representation from Belle Plaine and Scott County, wants the interchange project underway next spring. However, the new rest stop, a $3.5 million project, is not yet funded. Cambria wants the 28½ acres the rest stop currently occupies for its expansion plans. The state has OK’d selling the rest stop land in the name of economic development. The company has offered $700,000 for a parcel with an assessed valuation of $439,000. There’s also the issue of acquiring right-of-way for the interchange and designing it once the right-of-way is purchased, processes Mn/DOT says can take months.

Chaska City Councilors recently approved a concept plan for an 83-acres business park plan along Highway 212 near its intersection with Engler Boulevard. The business park could include a grocery store, prompting concerns from grocers in downtown Chaska. Downtown businesspersons are concerned the park could have a negative impact on their bottom lines. The proposed business park will have five distinct districts, the Chaska Herald recently reported. The districts include two offices districts, a corporate industrial district, a highbay industrial district and a retail district. The retail district would be on 15 acres and be anchored by a proposed 65,000-square-foot grocery store. It would also include businesses like a sit-down

restaurant, bank, pharmacy, day care, dry cleaner, daycare or barber/beauty shop. Councilors were initially enthused about the prospects of a restaurant near a businesses park. They are reportedly concerned about the impact a grocery store might have on other grocery operations in the city. The exact tenants of the park will depend on market demand. The park still needs preliminary and final site plan approvals from the city council. Gary Cooper, owner of Cooper’s downtown, believes a new grocery store would kill his business. The loss of Cooper’s would eliminate between 6,000 and 8,000 shopping trips downtown, said Dan Keyport, a downtown business owner and member of the Chaska Planning Commission.

Le Sueur County is in no hurry to accept a federal grant that will help pay for a new interchange on Highway 169 until details on the relocation of the rest stop are finalized. The Minnesota Department of Transportation (Mn/DOT) has yet to finalize where the rest stop along Highway 169 will be placed. That location will impact the location of the new interchange at Highway 169 and County Road 28. The federal government has OK’d a $2.1 million grant for the interchange project, the Le Sueur News-Herald recently reported.

New hunters who have missed the opportunity to take a firearms safety class may still deer hunt under supervision this fall by purchasing a hunter apprentice validation, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR). Now that deer hunting season is quickly approaching, many prospective youth hunters and their parents are realizing the remaining hunter safety and education classes are full. The hunter apprentice validation allows a new hunter the opportunity to hunt one season under the direct supervision of an adult licensed hunter without completing a formal firearms safety hunter education class (FAS). The hunter apprentice must first purchase the validation for $3.50 at an electronic licensing system vendor, and then purchase the appropriate hunting license. The validation is usable for one hunting season and apprentice hunters are allowed to

senior Josh Kimball of Waseca (17:00), sophomore John Roth of LCWM/Nicollet (17:03), freshman Cole Streich of Waseca (17:04), junior Matthew Viesselman of MCW (17:08), senior Wyatt Elmer of Mankato Loyola/Cleveland (17:14) and eighth-grader Landon Javens of Mankato Loyola/Cleveland (17:14). The top Belle Plaine finisher was sophomore Dylan Bigaouette with a 27th-best time of 18:06. Also competing for Belle Plaine, all of whom finished in the upper half of the individual standings, were sophomore Brendan Mackedanz (29th in 18:07), junior Max Hughes (37th in 18:17), freshman Kellen Bergs (38th in 18:18), junior Carter Olson (51st in 18:36), sophomore Carter Corl (65th in 18:54) and senior Kris Corl (66th in 19:03).

Validation Option for New Hunters

purchase only two validations in a lifetime. Apprentice hunters are then required to get their FAS certificates to continue hunting. Firearms safety hunter education classes are offered throughout the year by DNRcertified volunteer instructors. New hunters are encouraged to take a FAS class as early in the year as possible when many classes have openings, rather than waiting until demand is high and seats fill. “Safe hunting is not just a result of passing a firearms safety class,” said Shelly Patton, DNR northeastern regional training officer. “Equally important is the role of a parent or mentor to model the safe practices of firearms handling and ensure the new hunter is safe, responsible and ethical while hunting. Actual field experience is one of the greatest teaching tools.” Anyone born after 1979 is required to have a FAS certificate to hunt with a firearm, except youth age 12 and under may

hunt without a FAS certificate as long as a parent or guardian accompanies them. New, adult hunters (age 18 or older) may choose to take an approved FAS classroom training, an online study course with virtual field day, an independent study course from an approved instructor, or utilize the same hunter apprentice validation option under the same rules. Even though FAS certification field days may no longer be available this season, a new hunter may still benefit from reviewing the firearms safety course at www.huntercourse. com before hunting.

But as every No. 1-seeded team in the state knows, things

get more difficult each step of the way toward Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul, site of next week’s state high school volleyball tournaments.

B.P. Girls’ and Boys’ Teams Finish High at Section Meet

Will Host Fairmont for Section Title Friday Night

by Dan Ruud It was one of those games that beforehand many fans did not know what to expect. The Belle Plaine High School football team was at home against Blue Earth Area in the semifinals of the Section 3AAA Tournament. The Bucs were the defending Class 3A state champions but were without a number of key players from that squad this year, as evident from the 6-3 record they came to Belle Plaine with. The Tigers were coming off their only loss of the season 10 days earlier at Tri-City United, which by the way was upset in its playoff opener six days later by unranked Cannon Falls. So would Blue Earth Area regain some of its form from a year ago and defeat Belle Plaine, maybe even in blowout fashion? Or would the Tigers rise to the occasion and batter the Bucs?

For Muehlenhardt, Rural Route School Board Affirms Tight a Relaxing Ride in the Country Controls Over Internet Access

He can drive a car with his left hand and foot as well as anyone, slowing down just enough to deftly open a mailbox, deposit envelopes into it and close the box before the dust catches up with him. Lyle Muehlenhardt knows his way around the gravel roads of the Belle Plaine countryside. Having delivered mail in the rural areas around Belle Plaine for nearly all of the last 30 years, he’s has seen plenty. Tomorrow (Oct. 31), he’ll drive his route for the last time. His retirement becomes official Nov. 1. His last day will, as it has for years, start around 7:30 a.m. Muehlenhardt sorts mail before hitting the road. His route takes about 5½ hours and covers “103 point something miles.â€? Muehlenhardt will wrap up the day sorting mail. Friday, he was the last to leave the office. He wonders what his coworkers might have in store for a farewell. Muehlenhardt hopes things don’t get too emotional. “I’ll miss ‘em,â€? he said. “I’ve had good people to work with.â€? Muehlenhardt’s looking forward to time dedicated to doing not much of anything, perhaps a little fishing and plenty of time with his family and grandchildren. He likes to play cards when not wetting a line. “He’s going to find he has a lot of open time,â€? said Roger Malz, another veteran rural carrier. “He’s pretty easy-going so I’m sure he’ll be OK.â€? Muehlenhardt is known for his quiet but friendly demeanor. His co-workers describe him as someone they can turn to when they need help with something. “When I became a substitute carrier in Belle Plaine 10 years ago, he made me feel welcome. He could always tell a good story to make us smile,â€? said Cathy Creech, a co-worker at the Belle Plaine Post Office. “Most of all I’ll remember him telling me not to get so excited. To quote him, ‘Just let it go’.â€?

Helpful Hints

When Malz started working with Muehlenhardt back around ‘85, he was immediately impressed by Muehlenhardt’s approach to the job. He recalls the helpful tips Muehlenhardt offered, ideas that would save

Lyle Muehlenhardt has been delivering mail to rural Belle Plaine residents for 30 years. Tomorrow, he’ll run his route for the last time. He won’t miss heavy parcels or bad weather. Muehlenhardt will miss co-workers. “I’ve had good people to work with,� he said. time or keep mail from spilling about the car during the route. Muehlenhardt’s route runs through townships around township roads west, southwest and north of Belle Plaine. Creech, who has worked rural routes, too, enjoys periodically working rural routes on an emergency basis. “He has one of the most scenic routes, with the most hills and gravel roads, yet he hardly ever complains about having to deliver when the weather is bad,� Creech said. Having grown up on the farm, Muehlenhardt handles the heat and humidity with relative ease. He’s no fan of winter turning gravel roads treacherous. The winter of 2011-12 will forever be a bad memory. “It was always snowing,� he said. A good day for Muehlenhardt is a nice drive around the countryside. He grew up near the Malz farm in Blakeley Township, on a 115-acre farm along County Road 51, and doesn’t mind his route’s gravel roads and rolling countryside. Like many rural carriers, he has mastered the art of changing a flat tire on the fly. “The worst day you can have is when you have two flat tires,� Malz said. “Thank goodness for cell phones. You had

Belle Plaine School District students and visitors using the district’s wireless Internet system will still have to deal with relatively strict access to information based on a policy the school board approved Monday night. The policy limits the information students and guests can access. It is based on the most recent case law, some of which is based on litigation in Minnesota. The controls will limit the kinds of information students and guest users can access. For example, access to Facebook is blocked. A student doing a research paper on breast cancer will find information blocked by the district’s filters, said Superintendent Kelly Smith. “That’s the classic example,� he said. The filters target certain words to block or permit access to web sites, he said. But the student doing a paper on breast cancer research can have a teacher, working in concert with the school’s information technology staff, approve the use of a computer with a less-restrictive filter, according to the superintendent. There are good arguments for and against access to Facebook. For now, it will remain blocked, Smith said. The policy says “users are expected to use Internet access through the district system to further educational and personal goals consistent with the mission of the school district and school policies.� The district’s wireless Internet system allows access to guest and student users before and after school hours. Its filters should block access to certain sites the district deems not appropriate for education. That means a student won’t be able to post a photo taken during a basketball game on a Facebook page. The district’s policy prohibits

to hope somebody drove by or somebody was home. Lyle and I have both had that happen over the years.� Muehlenhardt got his start when a former carrier Lloyd Schultz told him Don Anderly needed a substitute for one of the rural routes. He started parttime in 1983. Muehlenhardt worked some shifts in Carver County as a way to make some extra money. After a few years as a part-timer, he went fulltime. Today, Muehlenhardt is the senior carrier working out of Belle Plaine. At 70, there are days when he knows lugging heavy parcels and bundles of mail will pleasantly be a distant memory. He won’t miss the ache in his shoulders and back from lugging mail. “When he retires, the joke is out I’ll be the old man,� Malz said. Along with his friendly disposition, Muehlenhardt may best be remembered for the cars he drove. Over 30 years, he’s logged plenty of miles. He recently put a ’96 Oldsmobile to rest. He logged over 200,000 (continued from page 1) miles driving his rural route. The frequent starts and stops can be tough on the vehicle. personal days teachers can take The key to long life, he said, and how many they can carry “I do oil changes every 3,000 over from one year to the next. The district agreed to a cap of miles.� two days carried over per year. The district will buy back any additional days at $110 per day, the rate it would pay a substitute teacher.

New Restroom, Ticket Building

The board OK’d a plan to allow a new restroom building on the west side of the footballtrack complex across the street from Oak Crest Elementary School. The 34-by-22 foot building will include womens’ and mens’ restrooms accessible during events at the facility, a uni-sex restroom for families open spring, summer and fall, an area for selling tickets to events and storage space. The district estimates the building could cost as much as $35,000. The board unanimously OK’d committing $15,000 as seed money from the operating capital fund balance. Financial donations and donated labor, including BPHS students, will help complete the project.

Construction will start in the spring. The building is expected to be completed by the start of the school year. In other action Oct. 28, the Belle Plaine School Board: • Paid bills totaling $1,992,372.73. • After a report on Belle Plaine students’ potential participation in adaptive sports, the board OK’d a cooperative agreement with New Prague for Belle Plaine students’ participation in adaptive recreation. Participation will cost individual families $75, the school’s participation fee. It will cost the district $375 for floor hockey this winter and $370 for softball in the spring. Superintendent Kelly Smith expects those costs will be reduced by the time the sports begin. • Approve the addition of five days to the contract for the high school counselor Laurie Green for the 2014-15 school year. • Approve the addition of two days to the contract for the junior high counselor/social worker Kelly Vorlous for the 2014-15 school year. • Accept the resignation of Darlene Anderson, high school secretary, effective Oct. 11, 2013. • Scheduled a special board meeting for Nov. 11, 6 p.m., to canvass results of the school board election and possibly approve contracts with unions representing teachers and support staff. • Approved the annual Assurance of Compliance report to the Minnesota Department of Education. The report assures the state the school district is following its myriad of policies and procedures. • Approved updates to policies addressing protection and privacy of pupil records; do not resuscitate/do not intubate orders; and violence protection.

School Board

Support Personnel

The agreement with the union representing the support staff – approximately 65 para-professionals, custodians and clerical staff – reflects a 7.32 percent increase for the 2013-14 and 2014-15 school years. The deal is worth approximately $3.2 million. Details of the tentative agreement include a 40-cent per hour wage increase on the salary schedule the first year of the contract and an additional 3 percent the second year for all members. Union members starting their 12th and 17th years will receive an automatic 60-cent per hour hike. About 18 members in the union qualify for the longevity pay increase. Union members who work 1,600 hours a year or less will receive two additional paid holidays. The agreement also includes the same increase in the district’s contribution to employee health coverage -- 3 percent increase the first year of the agreement and 1½ percent increase in the contribution the second year of the deal.
