Historic building morphs from cheese factory, to residence to retreat center by Randy Carlsen
The Milton Cheese Factory was built in 1924 and was in operation for 45 years. For many years Lynn and Rosie Boynton drove by the cheese factory and saw it as a “fascinating” building. They also saw opportunity for converting the cheese factory into a home and purchased the building in 1988. Twenty years later, kids grown and moved out, Rosie and Lynn bought a new home. The Boyntons started a new business in 2008, The Milton House, allowing them to share the home and surrounding area for others. Serving as a cheese factory from 1924 to 1969 has provided an interesting history for the building. The original cheese master, Maurice Lally, and his wife raised a family of four in one-fourth of the factory. For 45 years Lally, whose son George lives in Mantorville, made cheese for patrons of the Milton Cheese Association. During the peak years the Milton Cheese Factory was processing 26,000 pounds of milk into cheese. Patron numbers dwindled and improvements required to keep the plant operating did not make it financially profitable to remain open. While the Lally’s raised four children in a small part of the Milton Cheese Factory, Lynn and Rosie Boynton raised four children in the whole space of the converted 6,000 square foot building. At the time they moved in Brea was 14, Hallie 12, Chad 11 and Ben was five. “It took a couple of years to get it where we wanted it,” said Lynn. “We remodeled and converted it to pretty much what you see it as from the outside today.” He adds, “We put a lot of sweat equity into this place.” When asked if they would do it all over again, Lynn hesitates and Rosie is quick to respond, “I would do it again in a minute.” They might not have known exactly how much work was involved, but Rosie did not care. They had to install a new septic and the well had to be updated. Due to the size of the building there are two furnaces and two air conditioners. For nearly 20 years they lived in the converted cheese factory. The plan was for their daughter Brea and her husband Mike Koebele to build a new house and Rosie and Lynn would buy that from them on the five year plan. Two years later the couple built a new home on a desired location and Lynn and Rosie had to choose between the former cheese factory and the new home. Lynn said they could not afford both. They decided to try and sell their home and move into the new one. While waiting for it to sell, Lynn met a lady at Kasson Eye Care and the conversation included the popularity of scrapbooking. That triggered an idea. “We could let other people call it home for a weekend,” said Rosie. The Milton House was the next step for making efficient use of the building. Daughter Hallie Glenna, who is married and lives in Wisconsin, is in marketing and designed the website. Rosie serves as what you might call the interior decorator who likes to create new things at The Milton House and Wendy Hettinger is the day to day manager. Lynn maintains the grounds and likes to keep a low profile. The Milton House sits on one-and-one-half acres in a country setting three miles north of Mantorville. The house has a full kitchen, dining room, gathering room, elevator to the second floor, fireplace, sleeps up to 16 (14 single beds and one double) and has three baths, one with a jet tub. The Milton House has all the amenities for scrapbookers, including a computer, printer, photo and scrapbooking paper, tape runner (adhesive) and Cricut machine to name a few. They even have a massage therapist available for a group retreat weekend. They also have all the utensils for inhouse cooking. The Milton House can also be used for quilters, family gatherings, weddings, groom’s dinners, reunions, business retreats, picnics and church gatherings. “It’s in a country setting and so peaceful and quiet,” said Hallie. “We have even had hookers-rug hookers that is,” jokes Rosie. The Boyntons like the fact they are close to historic Mantorville and the two complement each other. The antique shops, theatre, Art Guild, Chocolate Shoppe, historic sites, Hubbell House and other places of interest can be a destination for groups staying at the Milton House. “We put so much sweat equity into that place,” said Rosie. “It’s so uplifting to get the positive comments and hear how much fun the guests have had.” January through April is the busiest time of the year at The Milton House and September-November is also quick to book. Through marketing and word of mouth they want to attract more activity during the quiet time. One of Lynn’s goals is to appeal to weekend bikers. “They could stay here and ride along the river one day and around the countryside the next. We have the scenery here to attract people who like to do that,” said Lynn. “We lived there as a family and now we work The Milton House as a family,” said Rosie. “We were able to call it home and now we have made it a home setting for others to enjoy.”
Hallie (Boynton) Glenna and her mother Rosie Boynton are partners in owning and operating The Milton House, a business they started in 2008. The picture at left is what the original cheese factory looked like.
On a weekend in early January a large group of scrapbookers gathered at the Milton House. They came from throughout Minnesota. January-April is the busiest time of the year at the Milton House.
Lynn Boynton checks in with scrapbookers on a Saturday morning in January. He wanted to make sure the accommodations were satisfactory and that they were able to find what they needed. As part of the weekend retreat for the scrapbookers a massage therapist was scheduled later that afternoon.
Rosie Boynton has a knack for decorating The Milton House to fit a special occasion. This particular weekend re-enactor officers for Wasioja Civil War Days 2011 took up residence at The Milton House.

14 million pounds of garbage delivered to Olmsted Waste to Energy In 2012 Dodge County delivered 14,009,120 pounds of garbage to the Olmsted Waste to Energy Facility in Rochester. That compares to 13,178,820 pounds in 2011. Garbage delivered to the landfill for disposal amounted to 536,040, down from 1,731,280 pounds in 2011. Self-disposal, estimated legal and illegal burning/burying, was 1,860,000 pounds. The estimate for 2011 was 1,822,000 pounds. From cardboard to aluminum cans, glass bottles and jars, food waste (made into compost), tires, etc., the amount recycled in 2012 was 6,855,104 pounds. For 2011 that figure was slightly higher at 6,939,840 pounds. The most commonly recycled items were mixed paper to include newspaper, office paper, junk mail, magazines and boxboard. The amount recycled was 3,017,360 pounds which compares to 3,240,540 pounds in 2011. Glass bottles and jars were second at 984,104 pounds and that compares to 1,046,560 pounds in 2011. The county also recycled 82,000 pounds of tires, 117,140 pounds in electronics and 206,760 pounds in steel cans. What is termed single stream recycling has caused recycling numbers to jump beginning in 2011. Single stream means paper, glass bottles, aluminum cans, steel cans and plastic bottles can be mixed together, making it more convenient for consumers to recycle. The single stream of recyclables is delivered to a large private sorting facilities in the Twin cities where people and machines sort out individual items to be sold to manufacturers. Dodge County Environmental Services Director Mark Gamm pointed out that it is still very important to keep nonrecyclable items out of recycling bins. He added that the county does not want to lose access to the sorting facilities and single stream services because of non-recyclable items being sent.

Corky is a seven year old, 16 lb, Chinese Crested/Poodle mix or a Crestapoo. He is really shy, it takes him a little bit to warm up, but once he does look out!. The Chinese crested side is really noticeable on his underbelly, it is just like the skin on your face. In the winter months he may have dry skin that needs lotion. If you would like a cuddle bug, heâ€™s the dog for you. Corky was surrendered to SDR as the result of a divorce. He has a history of seizures when really stressed but none have been seen in the time he's been here. He also has a history of allergies, but seems ÂŽ asymptomatic right now. Corky is good with older respectful kids who give him space. He is also good with quiet dogs but is not interested in playing. He walks well on a leash with the use of a harness and is housetrained if kept on a schedule. He wants to be with his people so someone who does not work long hours is best or a retired person. Corky is neutered and up to date with Rabies and Distemper, is heartworm and intestinal parasite free. Corky is also microchipped. For more information on adopting Corky or any of the other dogs check out the website: www.smalldogsminnesota.org or call Erin at 358-0210

How to Avoid Identity Theft When You Travel Dear Savvy Senior, What tips can you recommend to help retirees guard against identity theft when traveling? My sister and her husband had their identity stolen while on vacation last year, and I want to make sure I’m protecting myself on my trip to Europe next month. Paranoid Pam Dear Pam, Most people don’t realize that when you travel, your risk of identity theft increases. Here are a few simple steps you can take to protect yourself while you’re away. • Alert your credit card companies: Before you leave, let them know when, where and how long you’ll be traveling. This helps their fraud departments stop bogus charges if your card is used where you’re not. And, it reduces the risk that your card will be frozen when you use it far from home. • Secure your mail: Get a friend or neighbor to pick up your mail every day while you’re gone, or stop your mail at the post office. A full mailbox can be very inviting to identity thieves and burglars. Also, stop the newspaper, and don’t broadcast your travel plans on social networking websites. • Clean out your wallet: Pickpockets love tourist destinations, so take only essential identifiers, like your driver’s license, and just two credit cards – carry one with you, and lock the other one in a hotel room safe in case your wallet gets stolen. Also, don’t ever carry your Social Security card in your wallet, and leave your checkbook home too. It’s also a good idea to make copies of your plane tickets, hotel reservations, passport, driver’s license and credit cards, and leave them with a friend or relative who you can call in an emergency. And make a list of contact numbers of your credit card providers so you can call them if your pocket gets picked. • Protect your smartphone: These are gold mines for ID thieves. If you use a smartphone, protect your personal information by using the security settings to lock your screen with a password. Then install a GPS location tracking app on your phone such as “Where’s My Droid” for Android devices, or if you’re an iPhone user, activate the built in “Find My iPhone” app. You can also set up your phone so that if it does get stolen, you can remotely erase its data. Your wireless carrier may offer this service, and many security apps include this feature. • Use safe ATMs. If you need cash while you’re away, use ATMs that are located at banks. These are more secure than stand-alone ATMs which can be rigged to capture your card information that thieves can steal. • Safeguard your hotel: Never leave your wallet, passport, credit cards or other valuables lying around your hotel room. Either keep them with you or lock them up in the hotel safe. And if you have a laptop computer or tablet, get a locking device that lets you lock it to something fixed in the room. You local computer store can help you with this. Be careful with hotel computers and free Wi-Fi networks: Don’t access your personal accounts or disclose any of your financial information on hotel or other public computers or on public Wi-Fi networks. You never know what identity-stealing software is at work. • Freeze your credit: A temporary freeze denies access to your credit history, so ID thieves can’t open accounts in your name while you’re away, but it doesn’t stop you from using your credit card. To set up a freeze, contact each of the three credit bureaus – Equifax (equifax.com, 800-6851111), Experian (experian.com, 888-397-3742) and TransUnion (transunion.com, 877-322-8228). It typically costs around $10 per credit bureau to freeze your account, and $10 to unfreeze it. If you’re going to be gone for an extended period of time this is a good extra protection. Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O. Box 5443, Norman, OK 73070, or visit SavvySenior.org. Jim Miller is a contributor to the NBC Today show and author of “The Savvy Senior” book.

For the past 26 years Mark Bernard, owner of Bernard Landscaping, has been awaiting spring so he can be busy once again. Bernard said you can't blame people for wanting to begin outdoor projects. It gives them that much more time to enjoy the improvements made around their home. It was some 13 years ago when Mark capitalized on his experience and went out on his own full time to start Bernard Landscaping. Up until that time he had been landscaping part time and relied on word of mouth for work. He traded in a "secure" indoor job at Mayo Clinic for outside work and "uncertainty" as far as job security. So far Mark has no regrets in making the transition from his job to being his own boss. “I think there is still a good demand for the service,” said Bernard even though the new housing market has slowed and consumers have tightened their belts. With “spring fever” consumers are typically ready to spend money to have a landscaping project done right the first time. Bernard said many people don’t have time or don’t want to take the time to work on a landscape project on their own, spending money on a project that might not turn out like it was intended. Mark will typically walk through an area with a prospective customer to gain an idea of the work they want done. He can also give ideas for what might be the best design fit for a particular yard. Mark offers free estimates and can pro-

Frank ‘N Stein Restaurant & Lounge
Name: Chief Master Sergeant Todd Nelson Branch: USAF Years of Service: January 1981 to September 2005 Why are you supporting the Veteran’s Memorial in Dodge Center? It is the military man and their families that have throughout our great history kept this country safe and free. They are the true “American Heroes” not sports figures or Hollywood types, but real heroes, some who died and all who gave oath to die if necessary in defense of our country. This memorial rightfully honors those who have served. Veterans don’t ask for recognition, so it is up to communities to recognize their lasting contributions. This memorial is a tribute to their service. I hope local family members take this time to honor their loved ones who have served by purchasing a paver because the most significant part of any memorial are the people who served. Do you have any memories you wish to share of your time in the military? I had a wonderful 24+ year career. I had the opportunity to travel to numerous places that I would not have been able to. I was stationed in Europe (Germany and England), several places in the United States and ended my career in the Washington DC area while living in Northern Virginia. I was stationed at the Pentagon from January 2000 to May 2002. I flew out of National Airport one day prior to 9/11 for military related business in Florida. After the attacks, I was immediately recalled back to the Pentagon to participate as a member of the USAF Crisis Action Team. When you approach the Pentagon from the South on I-395 you round a curve and the Pentagon is right in your view. On that bright sunny September 13th I rounded that curve and saw our glorious flag draped over the damaged side of the Pentagon and knew then that we would stand tall and come back as we Americans always do... United We Stand! This time became the most demanding part of my service. My last assignment was with the Joint Personnel Recovery Agency. We were tasked with making sure all dislocated military members were trained to Survive, Evade, Resist and Escape as necessary based on their situation. Our motto: That others may live... to return with honor. I retired September 1, 2005 at Fort Belvoir, VA. We moved home to Minnesota in November 2006.

DID YOU KNOW? Facts about May
wAccording to the early Roman calendar, May was the third month. Later, the ancient Romans used January 1 for the beginning of the year, and May became the fifth month. wMay is one of the most beautiful months of the year in the Northern Temperate Zone. USUALLY the snow and ice are gone and the hot temperatures haven't arrived. Gardens begin to sprout and wild flowers are blooming. Many birds have built their nests, and mother birds are sitting on the eggs, which will soon hatch. wEmerald is the birthstone for May and Hawthorn and Lily of the Valley are the flowers for the month. wMemorial Day, Mother's Day, Armed Forces Day and The Kentucky Derby happen during the month of May. Visit our Library to find out more facts about the month of May.
