GETFRESH Girl’s Weekend By Barb Jeffers bjeffers@fillmorecountyjournal.com

A group of Ladies in Lanesboro wanted to help children and the rest, as they say, is history. Or, at least it will be, after the weekend of November 2, 3, and 4, 2012. The GETFRESH Girl’s Weekend is for women to do what they like to do: shopping, eating, drinking, music, theatre, yoga, and much more. The fact that the Girl’s weekend takes place during deer hunting season is not a happenstance, as the flyer for the weekend states, “While the hunters are away… the girls will play!” And how, you may ask, does this benefit children and families? The answer to that question is Family & Children’s Center of Winona. Julie Charlebois (Riverside on the Root), Pam

Watson (Brewster’s Red Hotel), and Sue Whitney (GETFRESH Vintage) had come up with the idea for the event and called another friend, Marlene Kohner, who is an advocate for children in Winona, asking for advice on where the proceeds would be best put to use to help children. Marlene got involved with the Girl’s Weekend and recommended the Family & Children’s Center of Winona to receive the proceeds. The group toured the facility and learned of the broad services the Center provides not only to children but to families. On the website for the Family & Children’s Center, (www. fcconline.org), it is stated that “Family and Children’s Center provides a wide range of highly effective, life-changing prevention and intervention programs

designed to strengthen families and promote individual wellbeing, in good times and in bad.” The Center offers services to help families deal with a wide array of issues including, but not limited to, drug abuse, sexual abuse, suicide, bullying, ADD, ADHD, and foster care advocacy. Family & Children’s Center of Winona is the largest private provider of human services in Western Wisconsin and Southeastern Minnesota. The center helps all of southeastern Minnesota, including families from Fillmore County.

The county board at their October 23 meeting introduced Ronald Gregg who has been hired to replace John Grindeland whose resignation to retire had previously been accepted as of December 28, 2012. Gregg was hired as of October 19 and has been appointed as acting engineer during a paid leave of absence for Grindeland. Gregg was hired after a monthslong search to find a suitable candidate to fill the county engineer position. Gregg recently resigned as the Cottonwood County engineer. Medical Examiner R. Ross Reichard, M.D., Southern Minnesota Regional Medical Examiner’s Office, discussed the proposed 2013 Medical Examiner service agreement with the

board. The Mayo Clinic office also contracts with Olmsted and Dodge Counties. Reichard said he will report back yearly on Fillmore County statistics. Sheriff Daryl Jensen maintained the closer location of the medical examiner will be more convenient and the service will be almost identical to what they have had before. County Attorney Brett Corson was satisfied with the contract. Reichard will be appointed county medical examiner as of January 1, 2013. The resignation of the current medical examiner, Lindsey C. Thomas, M.D. was accepted effective December 31, 2012. Testing of Alleged Clandestine Lab Site See COUNTY BOARD Page 2 

Commissioner Duane Bakke noted there was only suspected meth production in unit 6 of the motel and wanted the consultants to understand there was no proof of an actual lab. The contract with West Central Environmental Consultants was approved with a language change from “known” to “suspected” meth production and a bid price not to exceed $2,450.

The public hearing will be held on November 13 at 10:00 a.m. in the commissioner’s board room. The subordinate district, if established, is to be financed by the property owners in the district who would benefit and the district will be overseen by the Fillmore County Zoning Office.

County Coordinator Karen Brown said the county has hired this firm since 2003. She said it was a favorable proposal. Cost of the audit will be $47,250 in 2012, $48,650 in 2013, and $50,100 in 2014. •The non-union pay plan adjustment for 2013 will be an increase of 1.5 percent. This increase is less than the April CPI which was 2.3 percent. •The low and base bid for the Fillmore County Highway building remodel was accepted from Schwab LLC in the amount of $255,000. This bid is under the

preliminary estimated cost. An added bid for a work island was accepted at a cost of $3,100. Asbestos abatement will be done by Mavo Systems at the cost of $3,390 which was the low bid. During the remodel the Highway Department office will temporarily be located in the Fillmore County Office building. •After some discussion the board decided to hold the public hearings on the new mining ordinances in the county board room. The Planning Commission meeting during which the public hearings will be held is scheduled for November 15 at 7:00 p.m. The commissioners discussed whether the board room was large enough to accommodate an expected large crowd. There is no way to determine how many will attend.

Re-Elect

Dear Friends in Fillmore and Houston counties, I am writing to seek your support - and your vote - for another term as your State Representative. It will be my sincere honor to continue serving you in the Minnesota House of Representatives. Throughout Fillmore and Houston counties, I have met many of you at your doors, on your farm, at community events, festivals, parades, church dinners, county fairs, and public forums. Thank you for your willingness to greet me and share your concerns and hopes for our small towns, schools, nursing homes, the agricultural economy, and the State of Minnesota. I am seeking your vote for re-election because now, more than ever, our state needs public servants willing to work hard to preserve our rural values. I have never shied away from fighting for southeast Minnesota. We simply have too much at stake to do otherwise. If there is a small business to support, a family farmer to assist, a student to help, or a small child or senior citizen to protect, I believe it is my job to do so. While we may not agree on every topic, I hope you have found my style of tackling the tough issues an honest approach, especially at a time when many politicians govern only by what may win votes instead of doing what is right for our state. If you continue to give me the privilege of serving as your State Representative, you have my pledge that I will continue to work hard to make a difference for our communities and our state. The House District 28B in the Legislature is your voice in St. Paul, and it would be my honor to serve on your behalf. Thank you for your vote on Election Day. Sincerely, State Representative Greg Davids 507-951-3893 gdavids@centurytel.net

On November 6, Re-Elect State Representative Greg Davids The Name You Know, The Name You Trust!

C ommentary Concerned Citizens for St. Charles By Travis Lange, Concerned Citizens for St. Charles On behalf of the Concerned Citizens for St. Charles, I would like to thank everyone that has volunteered their time and talents to help spread the wealth of Travis Lange knowledge that has made a significant positive impact on our community. Some of you wrote letters or emailed the County Commissioners, some of you ordered yard signs, some of you helped pass those yard signs out, some of you personally visited with county officials, and some of you have sent numerous articles, links, photographs, and other informational pieces to post on our website and Facebook page. I cannot say “thank you” enough for all that you have done and continue to do to help our community become more educated

on such a controversial topic. Frac sand mining and frac sand processing has become the talk of the town. Recently, I’ve heard a comment repeated multiple times that I feel needs to be addressed. There seems to be a belief among some that the organizations behind the mining and proposed processing plant have too much money, therefore, there is nothing we can do. The truth of the matter is, we have no idea how much money MN Proppant has because they have not and will not disclose their investors. Regardless of the money, the statement that there is nothing we can do is absolutely absurd. An organized and motivated group of concerned citizens can make their collective voices heard. A group of concerned citizens joined forces with the school district in Cochrane-Fountain City and got their county officials to listen. The county denied a frac sand railway spur and drying plant because the citizens were concerned about the proximity to the school as well as the health and safety concerns associated with such a facility. In Buffalo County, zoning offi-

cials denied permits for a 450 acre frac sand mine near Montana, Wisconsin, citing concerns from a group of citizens. The city of Red Wing amended their zoning ordinances regulating the mining, transportation, and processing of silica sand because of continued opposition from an organized group of concerned citizens. Goodhue County is expected to adopt similar ordinances for the entire county. The city of Eau Claire rejected a rail spur frac sand transfer facility that was expected to pass just two weeks prior to the vote. In two short weeks, a group of concerned citizens assembled their resources, organized their members, and voiced their concerns. Their elected officials listened. Trempealeau County denied a mining permit for the first time a few weeks ago. The proposed mine was near the small, scenic town of Chimney Rock. The town assessor was quoted as saying, “Because it is quiet and scenic and there is wildlife running around in the hills and clean air and water. If this mine or any other mine is put in Chim-

ney Rock, you are destroying any incentive people have to move there, to build there.” Houston County Commissioners have requested a non-biased, third-party review of a recent EAW submitted for a proposed mine near Rushford. The concerned citizens spoke out at a public meeting to voice their concerns that the author of the EAW was also the project engineer and the representative for the sand company. The County Commissioners agreed with their concerns. Due to the amount of opposition in Wisconsin, the state recently kicked off a five year study of water quantity in areas of greatly expanded frac sand operations. In our very own Winona County, the Commissioners recently voted

to request an EAW (Environmental Assessment Worksheet) on the proposed Nisbit mine. This vote came after the County Planning Commission recommended against the EAW for the proposed mine. The concerned citizens for St. Charles emailed, called, and personally visited the Commissioners to voice our concerns…it worked! The previously mentioned instances all occurred within the past two months. This is proof that a collective group of organized individuals can make their voices heard. I ask that you all continue to voice your concerns, talk to your friends, and ask your neighbors how they feel, discuss the proposed mines and See CONCERNED Page 5 

Letter about LGBT Center To the Editor, The tri-state LGBT Resource Center for the Seven Rivers Region recently held its second annual Soiree fundraiser at a local home in Houston County. The event hosted forty-six supporters and guests for an evening of wine, gourmet appetizers and camaraderie with a silent auction of donations by local artists, artisans and crafts people. Minnesota and Wisconsin lesbian, gay, bi-sexual and trans- gendered people and allies celebrated the presence of the La Crosse area LGBT Center which was established in 2004. Two main goals of the Center are to Provide Connections and Promote Understanding. Activities of the Center include a safe space people can visit, a library, networking and education within the communities, and support for adults and youth to address issues of gender identity and sexual orientation. The Center serves the communities of Southeastern Minnesota, Northeastern Iowa and West central Wisconsin encouraging everyone to celebrate and embrace diversity as a human rights issue. If you’d like to learn more about the LGBT Resource Center for the Seven Rivers Region visit the website at www.7riverslgbt.org or call (608) 784-0452. Marianne Zerbe Houston, MN

Letter about animal care To the Editor, I feel the need to address the cruel, irresponsible, uneducated pet owners that made the decision to drop of five helpless kittens at the Sportsmans Park in Mabel, Minn. When you become a pet owner, you have certain responsibilities. You spay or neuter the pet if you don’t want babies. If you have babies, you find homes for them. Under no circumstances it is ever okay to dump them off! Would you dump off your children along the road? Well that’s exactly what you did. Left to starve to death and freeze. Shame on you! Some people think they wil hunt rodents and survive. I know different from years of living here. And yes they wandered up to our place starving and scared to death. So we called the Humane Society and brought them to get spayed, neutered and to find loving homes.

Your problem became our problem and so on. Below is a list of agencies if someone finds a lost pet or is in the desperate situation never do the unimaginable like these losers! •Winona Area Humane Society: 507-895-2066 •Camp Companion: 507-951-7801 •Sake haven Pet Rescue: 507-292-9122 •Coulee Region Humane Society: 608-781-4014 *Need vet check if crossing the state line. I encourage everyone to donate to these wonderful organizations to help cover cost in taking care of the homeless critters and finding them good homes. Or please visit and adopt a pet that needs a second chance at a good life. Cruel people suck! Steve and Corine Handke Mabel, MN

Politics aside

By Jason Sethre Publisher Fillmore County Journal & Olmsted County Journal Cell: 507-251-5297 jason@fillmorecountyjournal.com Certainly, most of us would like to fast forward to November 7 right now, so we could bypass the election and begin the next chapter in our lives, whatever that will be. But really, for me, it’s all Jason Sethre relative. Elections come and go. Figureheads move in and out like a high profile chess match. I would rather take a detour toward a less contentious temporary distraction: eating and running. Best Cooks of Bluff Country On October 30, Harmony Foods and the Fillmore County Journal will be hosting a cooking contest at the Harmony Foods store in Harmony. All entries have already been submitted, so participants have been selected. This special event, our

third annual cooking contest, demonstrates how blessed we are to have such great recipes and cooks who know how to work their magic. I know I am always happy to be a tasting judge, and we have a number of others signed up. But, if you would like to join in on the fun of being a tasting judge, please contact me before noon on Tuesday, October 30, at 507-251-5297. All you have to bring is your appetite. And, after all of the wonderful dishes have been tasted and judged, rewards for first, second and third place will be granted to cooking contest winners in the form of gift certificates to use at Harmony Foods, Preston Foods, or Rushford Foods. Collectively, $765 in gift certificates will be donated by the three participating grocery stores to the top three finishers in nine categories. And, don’t worry. If you can’t make it to the event held on October 30 at Harmony Foods, you will still be receiving a copy of every recipe offered in this year’s competition in the Tasty Temptations Cookbook published and inserted in the November 19, 2012 issue of the Fillmore County Journal. I would definitely like to thank Brad Hoiness and his staff at the

grocery stores in Harmony, Preston and Rushford for hosting and sponsoring this event each year.

i have lived on property that is adjacent to Ken tschumper for approximately 15 years. when you ran the last time, Mr. tschumper, in the winona daily news, you said you win your property disputes with neighbors. Here’s the truth. you tried to obtain access to some of my property in 1998 and you lost in Houston County Court. you then appealed and lost in the Minnesota Court of appeals. you again tried to obtain some of my property through the La Crescent township by presenting a false statement to the township in May of 1999 and you lost again. in april of 1999, you received a letter from my attorney insisting that you stop trespassing, cutting tress and that you quit attempting to remove an old existing fence. the Houston County sheriff had to be called several times to keep you away form my property and my family. in 2005 several neighbors saw your cattle hauled away and you told us you sold them. Later you had them returned. the 2007 picture shows your dead cattle and cattle confined in several feet of manure. in 2007 & 2008 your cattle were often loose and on a public road. your cattle damaged two different orchards and neighbors’ yards almost two miles from your property. in the winona daily news you said this was aLL HuMorous. now you have several more tickets for public nuisance. you have received citations for public nuisance in 2010 and 2011. in december of 2011 you refused certified mail service from the La Crescent town Board with regard to a fencing issue and had to be served by a deputy sheriff. sheriff report, Crn0002173: you allowed your livestock to get through your fencing and on a public roadway and you called a neighbor a vulgar name to the deputy when you discovered who made the report to the sheriff’s office. in august of 2012 your cattle were out again on public roads and on a neighbor’s property. your nuisance damage claims and harassment claims have all been dismissed by the Court. you have voted against veterans, Mn house journal page 11308,11309 5/5/2008.

grimage from Lanesboro to Preston by way of the Root River State Trail. This 10.3 mile jaunt is full of a perfect blend of scenery and conversation. With the group of people I run with each year, we’ve seen turkeys, deer and all sorts of wildlife. Just think. You can burn 2,000 calories before you consume 2,000 calories of turkey, gravy, yams,

green bean casserole, pumpkin pie, and stuffing -- and you’ll still be a break even for the day. It’s like a free pass for those of us who fight the metabolism battle every day. Oh, and you don’t have to run the entire 10.3 miles. As a matter of fact, many people walk the entire distance. Some people even bring their dogs. I hope to see you on the trail.

The Voter ID amendment would create barriers to voting for seniors and veterans. It will put Minnesota’s Same-Day Registration at risk and change our working system of absentee and mail-in ballots. Barriers to voting weaken democracy. Stand with AARP, Lutheran Social Services, Catholic Charities, Farmers Union, League of Women Voters.

Candidates Q&A Corrections and Additions Kingsland School Board Gwen Howard Why are you running for office? Promoting public education, especially at Kingsland, and communication to the people of the school district that support the education of their youth is essential for a school district to remain strong. After being approached by area residents to consider running, my decision to run for the Kingsland School Board was based on my concerns of issues communicated to me not only from individuals within our district, but from outside our school district. Being a former graduate, teacher, and parent of children of this district, I want Kingsland to be pursued by others for their education instead of one being avoided. What are your top three priorities you will focus on if you get elected? 1. Communication is the basis by which people feel informed and this is one of the biggest goals that I feel that is needed between the Kingsland School Board and the communities which comprise this school district. 2. Cooperatively building trust in decision making among all the key members of the school district; administration, parents, school board members, tax payers, students, and teachers to

make Kingsland an educationally superior school that attracts children from other districts. 3. Collaboration in working with all the members of the school district; administration, parents, school board members, tax payers, students, and teachers to resolve the issue of our community’s children open enrolling to other districts. Kingsland has a lot to offer for educating our youth in today’s technological society and I feel that there has not been enough investigation into the reasons our enrollment has declined in servicing our community youth. Peterson City Council Dick Lee Why are you running for office? I am running for office because of the demand from a large number of people that called or stopped in and encouraging me. They were all pretty familiar with me because I had been mayor for 25 years prior to my retirement three years ago. What are your top three priorities you wil focus on if you are elected? See that all things are done in order, and that we respond to what the residents want to try to take care of their requests as soon as possible, and just make sure that as a city council keep all of our residents in the uppermost of

BY ORDER OF THE SCHOOL BOARD

Monday, October 29, 2012 our minds in the decision making we have to do as a council. Mabel City Council Laura St. Mary Why are you running for office? I am running for Mabel City Council to learn more about and be part of the decisions made for the town. What are your top three priorities you will focus on if you are elected? My priorities will be to network with neighboring communities who share some of the same concerns as Mabel. To bring in some new ideas- promoting what Mabel has to offer and what it can build on while still maintaining a quality standard of living. When I moved to Mabel in 1994, I invested in this town, both financially and civically, and I want to protect that investment for years to come. Brian Street Why are you running for office? As a former, long term, city council member I see a need to address issues that were of concern, and still are concerns to the City of Mabel. With my years on the City Council, the last three of those also as Acting Mayor, I have the experience necessary to ensure that those and all concerns of the community’s citizens are looked into and addressed. What are your top three priorities you will focus on if you are elected? We need to bring business to Mabel. One of the most important would be a Grocery Store so our citizens do not have to travel out of town for basic needs. Second, along with a Grocery Store is revitalizing our Main Street and bringing other business opportunities here. This would create new jobs, help increase the tax base and also increase property values in town. There is also a need to address issues with the City’s infrastructure, such as one of our water towers and some of the older sewer mains in town. Rushford City Council Dave Colbenson Why are you running for office? I grew up in Rushford, and I love the community. I have traveled the world, so I am not naive to how things go. I would like to

I am interested to learn more about the responsibilities of every level, and then working to ensure that these responsibilities are being carried out. Review of accountability structures is needed to ensure that the things that need to be done are actually being done. #3- Excellence. I believe in working to a standard of excellence. “Getting by” isn’t good enough. Excellence should be the goal of students, staff, and administration. Keeping up with the world and our society is a continual process. There is no place to rest when excellence is the goal, especially when the work is so

I don’t have specific priorities that I plan to focus on; I would deal with issues as they arise during my term as a school board member. I would get involved in committees to review any issues that we feel need improvement. I would be accessible to all families to help resolve any issues that were brought to me or to the board. If I had to list any personal priorities, I would like to see our school continue to grow in technology resources, to have our bullying policy and Second Step Training reviewed to see if it is an effective tool, and to assess our college prep options for high school students to make sure they have the opportunities available to prepare them for secondary education after they graduate.

important. Sarah Pieper Why are you running for office? I have lived in Lanesboro for 19 years and have three children that attend the Lanesboro School. This year my oldest is attending high school. I was the director of the Lanesboro Daycare for four years working right in the school; this gave me the opportunity to get to know many staff and see how the school runs from an inside perspective. As a parent and business member in our community, I want to be involved in helping our school district continue to maintain the high standards we have set and improve in any areas we see a need. What are your top three priorities you will focus on if you get elected?

Local residents weigh in on the proposed marriage amendment Mary Thomas of Preston Personally, I don’t think we should be voting on this issue, there are way too many other issues that are more important. Like focusing on who do we really want to run this country and who do we really want to represent our Great State of Minnesota- where we have chosen to live. I am a Christian, I believe in God, Jesus, and his word (the Bible). In the Bible in Genesis 2, God created Adam, he didn’t want him to be lonely so he created animals. This wasn’t good enough for Adam, so he made Eve with a rib from Adam so that

he would have a perfect partner, a wife. Genesis 2:24 “This explains why a MAN leaves his FATHER and MOTHER and is joined to his WIFE, and the two are united into ONE.” To me, God has made the definition of marriage quite clear and obvious. He made us to be fruitful and multiply – it is only possible for a man and a woman to create a baby – a precious gift from God. In Genesis 19 God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah because the men in town wanted to have an intimate relationship with other men.

Mom and Dad have a trust. Dad has passed away and Mom has been mentally slipping lately. Mom is currently the trustee. How do I change trustees for Mom and Dad’s trust?

The trustee of a trust is first determined by the trust document itself. Presumably, Mom and Dad created the trust with successor trustees in mind, and there are some triggering events which would allow the successor trustee to assume their role as trustee. Those events may be incapacity of the current trustee, or resignation of the current trustee, or any number of scenarios dreamed up by your parents and the lawyer who drafted the trust. If a successor is not named in the trust, if no successor is willing or able to act, or the trust does not list triggering events, court intervention may be necessary to change trustees. Trusts are legal documents and issues related to them can get very complicated. It is important that you have an attorney review your documents whenever changes are necessary to the trust or in the administration of the trust. Call us.

Is your garden as attractive in the winter as it is in the summer? Evergreens, trees, shrubs and resilient perennials contribute color, texture and form regardless of snow cover. Ever greens are the backbone of cold-climate winter gardens. Using evergreens in different color ranges adds extra dimension. Ornamental grasses left unsheared provide delicate contrast against a stark, white blanket of snow and add movement in the winter garden. Not all deciduous trees and shrubs drop their leaves when fall arrives. Also, many color the landscape with their textured bark and colorful, persistent fruit. Horizontal limbs catch fallen snow and form striking patterns while cascading branches create interesting silhouettes. Structures of all sorts and stonework can create eye-appeal as well. A professional landscape design will incorporate select, specific elements to enhance your garden.

president The use of Smart Phones has exploded in the past four years, which means more cell phone users are browsing the Internet on their phones. But, the browser applications on Smart Phones are sophisticated enough to present websites as you view them on a desktop or laptop computer. Contrary to some “professional” opinions, you only need one website. If your website is developed correctly, it will align perfectly fine on a Smart Phone -- making it compatible with any browser and any mobile device. You can test your website at www.howtogomo.com to see what it looks like in a mobile version. Yes, mobile compatibility is important, but most website development companies pushing you in the direction of a mobile website are just trying to get you to spend more money onanother website platform. The reality is that a mobile website is a stripped down version of the full website, and most consumers bypass the mobile version to see the full version. So, mobile sites don’t get used as much as some web design companies want you to believe. Develop one good website for your company, and you will hit a home run however your end-user wishes to access it.

Jeff Jackson My clutch chatters and feels ‘jerky’ when i start out from a dead stop. do i need a new clutch? Probably. Chattering and jerking can be caused by oil contaminated clutch linings (due to an oil leak on the back of the engine, usually the rear main crankshaft seal), or by damage to the clutch itself. For the clutch to engage smoothly, the pressure plate must come down evenly on the disc. In other words, the surface of the pressure plate must be parallel to the flywheel otherwise it won’t engage smoothly. If the flywheel is warped (which can happen as a result of overheating and abuse), it can make the clutch grab. On rare occasions, a manufacturing defect in a new or rebuilt clutch can cause uneven engagement as can improper installation of the clutch. If someone allows the weight of the transmission to ‘hang’ on the clutch, it can bend the clutch disk causing shudder, grabbing or chattering. Damaged splines on the transmission shaft can cause the clutch disk to hang up and grab. If this is happening to your vehicle--the best way to diagnose the problem is to take it to your auto’s repair shop. Brown Tire would be happy to help you with any concerns about your clutch.

Typestyles elicit emotion. Therefore, the number and category of the styles used depends on the piece. A piece for an established legal firm would probably feature one or two traditional styles such as Times New Roman and Frutiger. A more contemporary company seeking a modern look may use distressed styles. Legibility factors include: Size of Type; 9-12 point is generally a good size for body copy and 18, 24, and 36 points are used for headlines. Typeface Characteristics; Italics slow a reader down. Medium weight type is easier to read than light or bold. Typestyles with serifs are usually more legible than sans serif. Line Length; Your line length in picas should be roughly be one and a half to two times the point size. So for ten point type use a line length of between 15 and 20 picas. (A pica is about 1/6 of an inch.)

What happens if I should die when I’m away from home, and my family wants my funeral and burial back in my hometown? I do get asked this question often, and it does occur on occasion. If a person dies while they are on vacation or away visiting friends or relatives, it is always best to have the family call their hometown funeral home first. By doing this, a family would only be paying the professional services portion of the funeral bill to one funeral home instead of two. After the family calls their hometown funeral director, that funeral director can refer to a network of reputable funeral homes in the area that the death occurs for their assistance. In the case of traditional funeral this would typically mean that the funeral home contacted would transfer the deceased to their funeral home and prepare the body for transfer (usually by airlines) to the hometown funeral home. By calling their hometown funeral home, the family will have the comfort and convenience of dealing only with someone who they know and trust.

Do you ever notice sometimes I will all of a sudden have quite a few of the same vehicles on my lot? usually it’s minivans or a 4 door sedan (Chevrolet Impala) or even some smaller SuV’s. the reason for this is at the auto auctions the rental companies, usually around when the new models come out, will liquidate their inventory. Often this mean that 1000’s of car are flooding the midwest market. It is not surprising for the value of a certain vehicle to drop 10% or more when this happens. a lot of smaller dealers like myself have to be concise of this so we are not upside down in say 3 or 4 vehicles, resulting in a possible $6,000 - $8,000 loss if we were to wholesale or inventory. Happy Halloween!

Kathy Haynes of Canton I am voting no because I have given the subject of homosexuality thought for many many years. I’m married to a minister so for a long time thought it was a wrong thing or a sinful thing, In my heart I couldn’t buy it. I did a lot of thinking and reading. I read a book about a Mormon man who had tried to be straight and had a family. It hit me over the head that this man was born this way, he didn’t choose to be a homosexual, he did all he could do couldn’t’ change himself. Then I thought – why did I think anybody would choose to be gay? I have four sons. What if one of them said they were gay, how

would I feel about it? Whoever they are, that’s who they are. I cannot imagine in a democracy telling people they can’t get married. We all want equal treatment, what kind of country is this? It also occurs to me that the gay community has been at risk from disease- AIDS for sure in part because they’ve always had to hide their relationships. The result is these people are less vulnerable to the diseases. Giving them the privilege of marriage is putting them less at risk because they don’t have to hide their lifestyle, who they are. Absolutely for the good of our society and the good of homosexuality.

MARRIAGE

Continued from Page 9

We’ve learned this really was an issue brought to the table to polarize, separate and incite voters. It’s discrimination in the true sense of the world. Julie Ryland of Preston In Genesis 2:18, the Bible says a man shall leave his mother and a woman leave her home. It says “literally” they will become one flesh. It also says marriage is for procreating. It was not good for man to be alone, so he made woman. I believe that God’s law is above Man’s law, and that’s why I’m voting Yes.

re monotes from a country kitchen by Vicki Christianson

With school in session the kids are assigned book reports or papers on certain notable figures or papers on world events. Their biggest source of information today is the Internet. Boy, what I wouldn’t have given for the Internet back in my day! When we got an assignment that involved doing a paper on a specific topic, our main source of information was the school library.

The best source for any topic was the “World Book Encyclopedia.” Each letter of the alphabet had uts own volume or book. Information from around the world could be found in those books. Salesmen used to go door to door trying to sell the World

Apple Crisp

Peel and slice about 12-15 apples of whatever kind you have. Combine 1 ¼ cups white sugar, 3 T. flour, 1 ½ tsps., cinnamon and ½ tsp. salt in a bowl. Put ½ of the apples in a 9x13 pan. Sprinkle with ½ of the sugar/flour mixture. Put remaining ½ apples on top and cover with last ½ of sugar/flour mixture. Combine 1 cup brown sugar with ½ cup softened butter or margarine and ½ tsp. salt. Stir in 1 ½ cups flour, ½ tsp. baking powder and 1 cup oatmeal. Mix all together until crumbly. Sprinkle this over the apple mixture. Bake uncovered 50-60 minutes at 350 degrees until apples are tender. Serve with ice cream or cool whip.

Book Encyclopedia. Many college students made money during the summer months peddling those books. You could buy one volume or letter of the alphabet at a time if you couldn’t afford the entire collection all at once. If you couldn’t find what you needed in the encyclopedia, you asked the librarian and she would start looking in the card catalog for a certain book or books that might help you with your topic. Current event topics could always be found in the daily newspapers, or you could watch the nightly news with David Brinkley or Walter Cronkite on your black and white television set. The library had all the major newspapers available for you to read every day. Other items that helped with the report were magazines like Time and Newsweek. During your study hall you could sign out of the study hall and go to the library to do your research. You had better behave while in the library or the librarian would send you back to study hall! Hopefully you had a study hall, otherwise you had to go to the library before school or right after school. That made it tough for kids who had to ride the bus. When it came time to finally write the paper you had to use lined paper with a good pencil or pen. No “word document” on the computer with an attached printer! Those poor teachers who had to try and read everyone’s writing! That was a job in itself! Since it is apple season I dug out my very old and very good Apple Crisp recipe. I actually made some last night. Please join us for a

Halloween was simpler when I was a child. Lacking money for fancy costumes, most kids donned a cowboy hat, a sheet, a black dress or ripped clothes and transformed themselves into a cowboy, a ghost, a witch or a hobo. Some just bought a 79-cent mask from Berges Variety store and wore their school clothes. Goody bags were plain brown grocery sacks rather than orange plastic pumpkin buckets. My mother would have never have allowed me to use one of her pillowcases to collect candy. She thought it made the child appear greedy. Halloween treats were also different in the late l950s. Popcorn balls, waxed paper-wrapped homemade fudge, and apples

were common fare. And no one worried about a needle or razor blade in that apple. How lucky I was to grow up in a more innoncent time! My best ever costume was a gypsy fortune teller when I was in fourth grade. It consisted of a long colorful dress, a bandanna, and all the costume-jewelry from my mother’s jewelry box. My Grandmother Schwartz sacrificed her fake rose in a water globe from her coffee table to create the perfect accessory - a crystal ball. A horrifying experience happened one Halloween when I was trick or treating with my sisters, Julie and Barb Barrett. We stopped at the home of newcomers to Preston. A man answered the door and in

Music stereotypes By Erin Woods Teenagers often identify themselves with the type of music they listen to. I know I do. I am seventeen years old and it’s easier to hang out with someone who likes my music for more reasons than one. Remember those car rides with your parents when you had to listen to their music and all Erin Woods you wanted to do was shove socks in your ears to drown out the sound of their favorite artist? Not what most people would classify as a good time. It’s much easier to hang out with someone who has the same taste in music as I do, I can crank the stereo to your favorite song without someone complaining that they want to change the station. Happy 50th Birthday Scott

Not only does the music I listen to often influence my social circle, but it also affects my fashion sense. For example, when you see somebody walking down the street with their pants around their knees and a hat to the side, you don’t automatically think to yourself, “I bet he absolutely loves to listen to Reba McEntire.” Have you ever seen a person with dark makeup, ripped jeans, an old shirt and some worn out Converse and say to them, “Have you heard the new Lil’ Wayne album?” Music is the perfect example of a stereotypical subject. Rock and roll music has evolved from Elvis shaking his hips to the audacious Alice Cooper running around stage with snakes and singing in a straight jacket. Two completely different ideas, right? But they’re both successful rock and roll artists. Since Elvis Presley, rock music has been “labeled,” if you will, a violent and or inap-

response to our “Trick or treat, money or eats” chant, demanded that we perform a trick in order to get a treat. Stunned, we eventually sang “Happy Birthday.” Then he gave us our treat - a brand new toothbrush. A dentist has to follow a strict moral code. Kids in high school, bitter about being too old to ask for free candy, made their own fun. Throwing eggs, soaping windows and smashing pumpkins provided them with more sophisticated entertainment. So in seventh grade my best friend, JoAnn Ostrem, and I headed out with a bar of Ivory soap stolen from my house to experience a new kind of “fun.” We headed for the home of a history teacher, known for his military demeanor in the classroom and for giving tons of notes. As we tip-toed up to the side of his house adjacent to a picture window with the drapes closed, we discovered that some boys were already soaping that window. As we gazed in horror, the history teacher drew back the drapes and got a good long

look at those boys. The boys ran away fast while we choked back laughter. Having had enough “fun” for one night, we walked home talking about how exciting history class might be the next day.

propriate, not to mention antiestablishment form of lashing out by many people, but to the listener it is nothing but entertainment and a form of free expression. Today, it’s not likely that parents have a problem with their child listening to The Beatles, but at the height of their success, they were a controversial topic within families with children. There have been acts of violence that have been blamed on rock music, such as an adolescent boy killing his mother after listening to a heavy metal song. Is it the genre of music that is provoking this? The answer is no, it is not. A study conducted by Donald F. Roberts, Peter G. Christenson, and Douglas A. Gentile titled The Effects of Violent Music on Children and Adolescents claimed that Heavy Metal music is not the root of these behaviors. Although they found that Rock and Roll music isn’t the root of anger within its fans, it does intensify a person’s emotions. For example, if you’re feeling sad or excessively angry and you listen to certain music, it’ll probably bring

out intense emotions. If you’re not already depressed or angry, chances are you can listen to a Slipknot song without wanting to throw a punch. On the other hand, music can save lives, including heavy metal. It’s not all violence and drugs. As a matter of fact, it is the lyrics that draw a lot of individuals to the genre. Heavy metal music is angry! It’s a free form of expression and not only does it give a lot of youth some form of identification, it’s a way to let loose. Have you ever gone to a Rock concert? It’s tough, it’s loud, and it’s in your face. But there has never been a more safe

May skip beans if you like and just make face on cream cheese mixture. and entertaining way to release aggression than screaming to your favorite band up on thatstage. In conclusion, rock music is like any other form of music and is virtually harmless. It doesn’t seem to be harmless because of the fact that people who enjoy this music don’t tend to be playing it at low volumes in the office. Keep an open mind and realize that rock music has helped more teenagers than it has corrupted. Erin Woods is a senior at MabelCanton High School.

Fillmore County Sports Some nice “D” and some Neis By Paul Trende Most expected the Chatfield Gophers to have a good season on the 2012 gridiron. Goodness accomplished. Sporting a 6-1 record and a #10 ranking in Class AA heading into Week 8, Chatfield’s sole blemish was a 6-0 loss to #1 Caledonia. Rushford-Peterson, on the other hand, was a bit of an unknown in August. But a mixed group of talented young players, and rugged experience ones, allowed R-P to deliver its fans a 5-2 2012 campaign heading into Week 8. With the two (competitive) losses coming to Caledonia and #7 Lewiston-Altura (both undefeated), the Trojans procured a few votes in the Class A state rankings; ditto on the goodness. Thus, the 3-Rivers South season ended with a pair of its powers doing battle. R-P special teams fired the first shot. Cole Kingsley returned the opening kickoff 56 yards. On R-P’s first offensive play, the Trojan gun misfired. A reverse went awry (fumble). Jake Neis got the recovery, starting the Goph’s first drive. He ended it with a 13-yard TD run (7-0).

R-P was quick to answer. On the ensuing kickoff, the ball was initially bobbled. Casey McLellan then grabbed it, and had a good handle for 78 yards, to paydirt (7-7). The Gophers answered on their next possession. A bit of misdirection was the finisher. Six-foot three, 210-pound tight end Jayme LaPlante took the ball on a end-around and used his big-man wheels to score from 17-yards away. The 1st quarter was a bit of a track meet with Chatfield leading 14-7. The second quarter was not. At the half, Chatfield still led 14-7. In the 3rd quarter, the teams exchanged interceptions. R-P senior LB Dalton Bellock tooketh from Chatfield. Gopher junior LB Dalton Schwier then tooketh back from R-P. Schwier’s 41-yard return set the Goph’s up nicely. Justin Viss capped things with a 3-yard run (21-7). Nate Skare kicked a 27-yard field goal late in the 3rd quarter (24-7). Skare drove the final nail with a 4-yard TD run (30-7) with just under 4:00 to play. The Trojans got a final score from Zach Boehmke, a

22-yard run (set up by a Steve Adcock 58-yard KOR). Via a 30-14 final, Chatfield downed R-P. Speedy and elusive Neis was the workhorse (26 carries, 145 yards, TD #11 on the year). Gopher ‘D’ did the rest, holding R-P to 26 yards of total offense in the 1st half, 150 for the game (five 1st downs). The only Trojan immune to maroon and white was Boehmke. R-P’s multi-versed senior tailback had 15 carries, for 145 yards, and TD #8 on the season. R-P’s “other” best weapon was kickoff returns (three over 50 yards). Explosive Trojan sophomores Alex Vix and Cole Kingsley, who combined for 14 TDs through seven games, combined for just one offensive stat, a Vix 25-yard reception. Chatfield finishes the season at 7-1 (4-1 in the 3-Rivers South; 2nd place). R-P finishes at 5-3 (3-2 in the 3-Rivers South; 3rd place). The squads are the 3-seeds in Sections 1AA and 1A. SEC Unblemished It’s not a secret; Mabel-Canton is the SEC’s premier volleyball team. With a win over Lanesboro on October 9, they clinched their 15th straight league title. All that was left after

that, regular season-wise, was to run the table in conference and get a little East-West Showcase redemption. Grand Meadow (9-3 in league, 14-10 overall) offered up the last hurdle to a flawless SEC campaign. A plus .500 team, the Larks aren’t a cupcake. M-C just made it look that way. The Cougs were in control of set #1 13-7 when junior libero Christine Lee served nine consecutive points including four aces to lead M-C to a 25-10 win. GM managed to keep game #2 closer, but they still never led. The Coug’s attacked from everywhere, getting multiple kills from four girls, (amazingly) none named Sand, enroot to a 25-18 victory. M-C left no doubt, taking game #3 25-15 for the 3-0 sweep. They finish their SEC season 13-0. Lydia Geving (8 kills), Christy Welscher (7 kills), and Kristina Mengis (6 kills) all out-spiked teammate Belle Sand (5 kills), something that hasn’t happened this season (making coach Lonnie Morken the Dean Smith to Sand’s Michael Jordan, for the

evening). Carly McCabe notched 25 assists. Welscher joined Lee in serving 4 aces. Danielle Paul (7 digs) joined Lee (8 digs) in leading the team on defensive. The Cougars then faced LeRoy-Ostrander in the EastWest (champions) game. A season ago, M-C entered in the same situation, 13-0, only for the Cardinals to hand them a 3-1 defeat. It isn’t a season ago (L-O no longer has Chanda Riedemann). M-C came out with an attacking clinic in game #1. Twenty-one of their 25 points came via kill. That included nine straight points-via-spike late in the set. The Cougars ended on a 10-0 run to win 25-9. Game #2 wasn’t quite so surgical, but L-O only moved four points closer in losing 25-13. The Cards wouldn’t go down without a fight in game #3. Led by senior’s libero Jessica Jennings and outside hitter Becca Bunne, they won it 26-24. M-C quickly regrouped, began game #4 5-0, and ended it 6-0, to win the set 25-10, the match 3-1. Six Cougars had six or more kills. See SPORTS Page 19 

It was a team effort: Sand 18 kills, 16 digs; McCabe 45 assists, 18 digs, 6 kills; Geving 10 kills, 18 digs; Welscher 11 kills, 5 aces, 2 blocks; Mengis 7 kills; Lee 16 digs; Sara Lind 7 kills. For L-O, Jennings was a hustling attack-denying machine (38 digs). Bunne led the Card’s with 13 kills. Freshman Haley Riedemann, sister to Chanda (now at RCTC), had 7 kills. M-C ends with a 29-5 overall mark, the #2 seed in Section 1A East. Keefe Serves Chatfield to Finale Win When it comes to Gopher volleyball, the first name that probably comes to mind is Alex Duxbury. Alex is one of the best libero’s in the area, in the state. But Chatfield also has sophomore Kirsten Keefe. She has been the Gopher’s most versatile player. The Kingsland Knights got a good look at Keefe’s multitalents, as the teams met up for their 3-River’s finales’. In game #1, the 5’7” sophomore put her superb serving skills (95+ percent) on display. A trio of Keefe aces (five total points scored) was the majority of a 6-0 Gopher run that turned a 3-3 tie into a 9-3 Chatfield lead. The Knights would get

as close as (down) 13-12, but Chatfield would win 25-20. In game #2, Keefe was the first server. When done, Chatfield led 10-1. Keefe’s second service session was the game’s last. An ace fittingly was the final point as the Gophs won 25-10. In game #3, it wasn’t Keefe’s serving, but her attacking (4 kills) that helped Chatfield. Short of ties at 1-1 and 3-3, Chat led throughout enroot to a 25-20 win, a 3-0 sweep. Keefe finished the night 24 of 25 serving with 8 aces. She added 7 kills and 16 digs. Classmate Maddy Kammer led Chatfield with 9 kills. Duxbury led the Goph’s with 18 digs. For Kingsland, seniors Cheyenne Losey (7 kills, 2 blocks), Lizzie Tart (19 assists, 11 digs, 4 kills), and Jessi Kaster (15 digs, 4 kills) led the way. Chatfield finishes the regular season 7-3 in the 3-Rivers (4th place), 19-9 overall. They are the 2-seed in Section 1AA East.

that’s having people sucked out of it to fuel the workforce in the bigger cities.” A thorough housing study was conducted in 2008, but the city may need to look again at housing market needs. Sarvi responded that there were no glaring holes in the housing available, but that the city should always be prepared for making the case for changes. One particular change is housing in which homeowners can be comfortable and safe in for all ages. “There are better

nances,” added Sarvi. Councilor Vern Bunke raised the question of opportunity for further housing and questioned a transportation source. Rural transportation for those commuting to larger cities may seem an option, but Sarvi indicated that it is tough to secure due to federal funding. “It just keeps coming up,” said Bunke. “It’s not just Rushford, but every little town

homes since the flood, but they’re not necessarily set up for people aging in them,” noted Sarvi. “It’s my perspective that we should set the conditions so we’re not behind the 8 ball, but thinking ahead and set the possibilities.” Cooperation with the City of Rushford Village is also a priority for future planning. There are certainly opportunities for the two entities to work together, including joint planning. “The main issue is that they don’t have comprehensive plan,” cautioned Sarvi. “We need to wait until they do and look for opportunities for linear structures that we could jointly plan for. We need to jointly plan for zoning in village areas right around Rushford and Peterson. Right now there are no friction points, but we need to be monitoring and be a part of the discussion.” The Tree Board has been something of a thorn in the side of the city as they’ve struggled to maintain enough interested board members. There has been recent discussion of combining the board’s responsibilities to include parks, trails, and more with its current tasks of maintaining the city’s Tree City designation, tree

inventory, and tree maintenance. Now, the city is also considering changing it from a board to a committee. “A board is autonomous to city,” noted Sarvi. “It has its own authority. A committee would answer to city.” City Clerk Kathy Zacher suggested that perhaps a Park and Tree Committee could be a subcommittee of the Planning and Zoning Commission with one person serve as a liaison. Sarvi agreed that it may generate more interest in than simply a Tree

Board, but he did caution about putting too much on the back of the commission. Another option would be putting the Tree Board under the umbrella of the Trails and Tourism group, which already serves as a clearinghouse of sorts for other recreational development. For now, the city will examine all of the options. The next regularly scheduled council meeting is Monday, November 12, at 6:30pm, at city Hall. The public is encouraged to attend.

Public hearings set for mining ordinances By Karen Reisner The Planning Commission at their October 18 meeting discussed the revisions to Fillmore County Zoning Ordinance 721 and the draft of the new Ordinance 736 that will deal specifically with industrial mining. After some discussion and some tweaking, a public hearing date, November 15, was set for each of the ordinances. The public hearings may be held at the regular meeting place, the county board room in the courthouse. However, other sites are being looked at to accommodate an expected large crowd. This discussion of the two ordinances was not a public hearing, but just an opportunity for Sand Committee members and the Planning Commission to make any changes to the draft language of the two ordinances before the public hearing. The room was full to capacity, but the public was not asked to contribute. Tom Kaase, who chaired the Sand Committee, commented on the process since the moratorium was put into place last February. He said much has been learned with committed committee members and the participation and interest of the

public. 721, Mining for Construction Materials This ordinance remains similar to the ordinance that has set the rules for traditional excavation and mining for some time. There are a few changes including improved definitions and clarifications on rules for blasting. Commission and committee member Duane Bakke noted that all unloading of trucks and equipment must occur on site and not on a public road. The ordinance is geared toward all types of construction materials and includes agricultural lime and bedding sand for livestock operations. It specifically does not include rules for “industrial minerals and metals.” 736, Industrial Mining Some additional changes were made to the current draft made available at the meeting. Bakke noted there are about seven previous drafts. The most recent language prohibits all washing of the materials at the site. “The washing or application of any chemicals or flocculants to excavated or mined industrial minerals or metals at the mining site is prohibited.” The committee also won’t allow materials to be hauled back into

Harmony Arts Board Is hosting an Art Show featuring the paintings of award winning local artist

Joni Finnegan

Saturday, November 3RD from 1-4pm at the Quarter/QUARTER Restaurant in Harmony.

Free appetizers prepared by Chef Stephan Larson along with coffee and water will be served courtesy of the Arts Board. The Wine Bar will be open. The show is titled “Paths Less Taken” and will feature oil and watercolor paintings inspired by nature and the beauty of our part of the county.

Fillmore County that are the leftover by-product after having been washed with chemicals or flocculants. It is estimated that 30 to 40 percent of the material hauled from the mining site will be separated through processing and not qualify as frac sand. Zoning Administrator Chris Graves said washing is prohibited to protect and keep safe the county’s needed water supply. Additional language will be added to 736.04 Prohibited Activity. “Any materials brought back to the site that have been processed with chemicals or flocculants is prohibited. Any haul back material is subject to testing at the owner and/or operator expense.” After some discussion on size, the total allowable size or surveyed boundary, shall not exceed 50 acres and a working area of no more than 25 acres will be allowed at one time. No more than eight industrial mining sites will be allowed at one time within Fillmore County. Reclamation is to be done in phases as the working area moves. Haul routes will be on blacktop or concrete roads. The use of gravel roads is prohibited unless an exception is applied for and approved. “If an exception is approved, the mining operator must maintain the roads to the satisfaction of the local road authority, provide dust control, and still enter into a road maintenance agreement with the county and/or township.” Graves said once the most recent changes are made, the drafts of the ordinances which will be presented at the public hearings will be placed on the county’s website. Bakke commented that the proposed ordinance is pretty restrictive compared to some others in other locations. After the meeting I had a conversation with Paul Leduc. He and his wife Rita were consistent attendees to the committee meetings and often contributed to the discussions. Leduc said he thought the resulting proposed 736 ordinance was a fair compromise. He said it was a good process and he felt he and the public had been listened to by the committee. Others must have agreed with this sentiment because there was sporadic applause at the end of the meeting. Other Business In Brief •A feedlot expansion CUP

•A public hearing was held to remove Whalan from county ordinance 606.01. There was no public comment from Whalan officials or residents. Whalan is the last of the incorporated cities in the county to adopt their own zoning ordinance which they did on October 1. •There will be an additional public hearing on November 15 which will limit the requirement of a permit for cement slabs. Bakke noted a permit is needed for a cement or asphalt area that is part of a feedlot due to runoff issues, but doesn’t seem necessary for a cement patio, a corn dryer pad, or other non feedlot-related areas.

F&M Bank of Preston has a new look By Barb Jeffers F & M Bank of Preston, Minn., has received a facelift which both the bank customers and staff appreciate. According to Dan Christianson, CEO of F & M Bank of Preston, the remodel was necessary, as many items needed to be updated. “The counters were in tough shape,” he stated. The counters were approximately 15 years old and had many scratches. The 30-year-old cabinets were in disrepair, were not working well, and needed to be replaced. Christianson noted the bank wanted to “better utilize the space” when the area was remodeled. The remodeling project began

on June 1, 2012. F & M hired a firm from Rochester by the name of Construction Collaborative to complete the project. Construction Collaborative does a lot of work with businesses who have to keep operating noted Christianson. The remodel was finished the end of August, 2012. The updated look includes a new teller line and offices behind the teller line. Another piece of the remodeling project has yet to arrive. Dan Christianson explained that there was an old safe in the bank vault which is being restored. When completed, the safe will be on display in the bank.

Mr. Christianson has received many positive comments from customers, as well as employees, saying the new colors are warm and inviting. Linda Means, a customer of F & M Bank, said she “loves the colors,” and thinks the remodel is “very nice.” Jenny Niemeyer, a teller at F & M Bank, said the comments she hears most often from customers about the remodel are “comfortable” and “homey-looking.” F & M Bank of Preston invites everyone to stop in and see the new and improved area. Bank hours are Monday through Thursday 8:30 - 4:00, Friday 8:30 - 5:00, and Saturday 8:30 - 10:30.

HARMONY UNITED METHODIST CHURCH

60 Main Ave. S., Harmony, MN 507-886-6851 • humc@harmonytel.net Worship every Sunday at 10:30 am Sunday School at 9:30 am • Coffee Fellowship at 9:30 am Pastor Michael W. Smith

Harmony United Methodist Church Organized Methodism in Fillmore County had its beginning in 1854 in an old school house. In the following twenty to thirty years, there are few records, but it is known that pastors conducted services in the Marks School, located 6 miles west of Harmony, in Harmony, and in Granger. The first Harmony Methodist Church was built in northeast Harmony and was dedicated in 1895. In 1915 enough funds had been raised to add a basement to the church for meetings, suppers, other social events, and a place for the overflowing Sunday school classes. Prior to then, all meetings were held in homes. As membership and Sunday school enrollment increased, it became apparent to the congregation that a new and larger church was needed and a committee was formed to investigate various locations. By May of 1927, a new location was chosen for the second church to be built on South Main Avenue. This property was purchased and the new Harmony Methodist Church was built and later dedicated. After the initial pledge of $5,000 was made by the Ladies Aid, the church assumed the responsibility of the remaining church debt on which they made payments until 1944. At that time congregation members decided to conduct a special drive to make the final payment. We became known as the Harmony United Methodist Church when the Evangelical United Brethren churches and Methodist churches combined. Our church continued to grow and welcome members from the Granger United Methodist Church and the State Line United Methodist Church when each closed. We are an active worshipping, praying, serving, and caring congregation who praises and gives thanks to God and what He has given us. We remember the needy and less fortunate by supporting their needs locally and in international mission effects. Our congregation is active in our local community’s weekly adult Bible Studies and Men’s Prayer Breakfasts, our women’s UMW, and volunteering in our health care facilities, schools, and community events. Our members send health, school, and other kits for disaster victims through United Methodist Committee On Relief organization (UMCOR.) Our church also supports and donates to the Emma Norton services in the Twin Cities, sends clothing and needed items to a church in Appalachia, as well as volunteers drivers for Harmony’s Meals on Wheels program, donates to the Fillmore County Food Shelf, and Christmas in Fillmore County. Originally, our annual Beef Dinner was organized and served by the Harmony Methodist Men’s Club as a project of both the Harmony and State Line Men. The dinners were then served on a Wednesday evening by the men and young men of the two congregations. All profits were directed to the maintenance of the shared parsonage. Today, our Beef Dinner is prepared and served on the first Sunday in November by our entire congregation. Please join us for our annual Roast Beef Dinner served family style on Sunday, November 6th. We welcome everyone to worship and share fellowship with us each Sunday when we are reminded, “When worship is over, our service begins…”

Spring Valley approves agreement with Waste Management The Spring Valley City Council meeting got underway at 6:00 on Monday night, and six minutes later the meeting was over. The agenda consisted of approval of the minutes from October 8, Consider the October Final Accounts Payables totaling $365,080.56 and to approve a short-term extension agreement with Waste Management. Gary Heinzig of Waste Management said that he had talked

with their billing department and changed the extension date so the new agreement will begin February 1, 2013. He said that bills are going out now for service in November, December and January, so the clean break would be to make the changes effective February 1st. Heinzig continued to state that they will still contact the commercial customers and let them know that their new rates will begin November 1. They

will also have best-case pricing. If their current rate is lower than their new rates, that will be honored through the life of the current contract before switching to the new rate. The Recycle Agreement was mutually agreed to between the contractor and the city, the current end date is October 31 and that will be extended to January 31, 2013.

“Billy the Kid” spotted in Chatfield By Barb Jeffers Performer Billy Dean arrived in Chatfield, Minn. on October 22, 2012, to give area residents a chance to “spend an evening with ‘Billy the Kid’.” The singer brought no band, no smoke, no stage full of bright lights. It was just Billy and his guitar. Billy Dean is known for hits like

“Billy The Kid,” “Somewhere In My Broken Heart,” and “Let Them Be Little,” all of which he performed for the audience in Chatfield. Billy Dean has also appeared in numerous television shows and made-for TV movies, and was once among the cast of the soap opera One Life to Live. The evening was held at the

The event is sponsored by the Fillmore County Deputy Sheriff’s Association with the proceeds going towards two $500 scholarships for Fillmore County students pursuing a career in Law Enforcement. A portion is used toward upgrading equipment, and any remaining profit is given to area schools to use for post-prom events. The benefit normally raises approximately $2,500 after expenses. The Sheriff’s Association does not choose the performer, a promotional company makes those arrangements. When asked how he liked the acoustic show compared to a regular show, Billy Dean stated he likes the more intimate acoustic performance because “people can hear the words,” and he added, “and there is no fear of being too loud.” Opening for Billy Dean was Jamie O’Neal with

ley Policy Coordinator appeared before the Council and provided them with a log of calls for service and Patrol Activity. During the month of September officers handled 59 calls, most of which were the usual barking dog complaints and dealing with driving complaints. But there were other calls that involve issues that places these officers in difficult positions and sometimes in dangerous posi-

tions. Every one of these officers deserve a big “Thank You.” Chad Hindt of the street department reported that workers have started rocking the trail and continue to sweep the streets and put up signs on Broadway. Jim Cooper said that it’s been a busy month for the ambulance service with 39 calls during the month. Chris Czapiewski, Fire Chief said that so far this year the fire department has responded to 24 this year, which is down from last year.

her husband, Rodney, accompanying her. O’Neal has had hits with songs such as “Trying To Find Atlantis” and “Somebody’s Hero.” The Fillmore County Deputy Sheriff’s Association was fortunate to get two highly talented performers for this year’s benefit. The song that gets the biggest reaction from the crowd when he plays it is “Let Them Be Little,” according to Dean. Billy Dean released a new CD on September 25, 2012, titled A Man

Of Good Fortune, which he says “has received outstanding reviews from the critics.” The new CD includes a song called “A Seed,” which he stated was “one of the best songs I have ever heard.” Billy Dean gave the audience a show which felt more personal than most. His sense of humor mad se the night even more entertaining telling several funny stories from his life which included his friends and family.

The FCJ reaches over 12,000 household each week.

County residents sought for preparedness exercise Fillmore, Olmsted, and Wabasha County Public Health and their partners are hosting a preparedness exercise titled “Operation Double Dose” from October 30 to November 1, 2012. This exercise is being supported through the Public Health Emergency Preparedness Grant which requires local public health to participate in train-

ing and exercises. One goal of the exercise is to test the feasibility of busing the entire Fillmore County population outside of the county to receive treatment or care during a health emergency. The second goal is to check how efficiently vaccinations and/or medications can be distributed at pointsof-dispensing sites. “The best

way to see if busing and mass dispensing are effective is to try it on a smaller scale and fix any problems that occur so that our response during a real emergency runs smoothly,” stated Brenda Pohlman, Public Health Emergency Preparedness Coordinator, for Fillmore County Public Health. Fillmore County Public Health

is seeking volunteers, age 18 or older, to participate in the exercise on Thursday, November 1, 2012. These volunteers will help public health test the forms, transportation, and mass dispensing tasks that are part of the exercise. Interested participants will depart from Preston at 9:30 AM on a bus and return around 12:30 PM. Transportation to

Local conservationists to be honored as area finalists at State Soil and Water Conservation District convention The Minnesota Association of Soil and Water Conservation Districts (MASWCD) has named Duschee Hills Dairy LLC of Lanesboro as one of eight Area Finalists in the 2012 Outstanding Conservationist Award Program. Pat and Chris Troendle and Ben and Darla Taylor will be recognized at a December 4th luncheon at MASWCD’s 76th annual convention in Bloom-

ington. The awards program recognizes farm families, individuals, conservation organizations and other groups for their accomplishments in implementing conservation practices and improving Minnesota’s natural resources. Of the eight Area Finalists, one will be announced as the State’s Outstanding Conservationalist of the Year at the December 4th

luncheon. “We’re proud of the Troendle and Taylor families for what they’ve done in conserving our natural resources in our area,” said Pamela Mensink, suerpvisor of the Fillmore Soil and Water Conservation District, which nominated Duschee Hills Dairy LLC for the award. “It’s great to be able to recognize the work they’ve done locally. They’ve provided a wonderful example for

Recycling 101 LaVerne C. Paulson Recycling Education Coordinator Fillmore County Resource Recovery Center held a very successful Fall Household Hazardous Waste event on October 2. Approximately two hundred fifty households dropped off donations of unwanted and unneeded materials during this “get rid of all that nasty stuff in your house and garage for free” day. Most LaVerne of the people Paulson that brought hazardous waste have visited us on HHW Day several times. However, residents from forty-six house-

holds attended this event for the first time. I am sure they learned that dropping off hazardous waste is quite painless and they will be back with a few more items next year. Speaking of next year, the spring Hazardous Household Waste Day has been scheduled for May 7, 2013...traditionally the first Tuesday of May, and another will be held the first Tuesday of October. The hours of operation will be noon until 5:00 p.m. As usual, notices will appear in your local paper prior to the event. I know many of you missed this party for a variety of reasons, but it is never too early to start planning for May. Perhaps the boxelder bugs will be a bit less numerous in May. We collected a lot of material that kept the crew of eight quite busy for five hours. Again, paint

is the most common item brought for disposal. We have collected more paint on previous events, but filling nine large cardboard containers measuring approximately 4X4X4 (about seven cubic yards) is still a lot of paint. Please keep in mind that an empty, dried out, paint can is not hazardous waste and should be included in your landfill garbage. Many of us thought that there were few, if any, mercury thermometers still floating around out there, but a bunch, nearly twenty, found their way to us once again. One concerned person turned in five of them and was rewarded with a brand new, never-beenused, digital thermometer. I am aware that several of you graciously donated your old termometer and were not given a new one. I have several on hand at the present time and will, (first come, first served until gone) give you a digital model if you did, indeed, bring one or more mercury models and did not get a replacement. If so,

e-mail me at lpaulson@co.fillmore. mn.us<mailto:lpaulson@ co.fillmore.mn.us> or call me at 507-251-5240. Most people who stop by with donations are asked to complete a short survey of five or six questions. One of the questions asks how important it is that Fillmore County has these HHW days each year. Approximately 95 percent of the people rated the program at a “5” with five being the top score. The comments that many added showed their appreciation for this day, as well. It is indeed encouraging to have a well attended HHW day. This is just another way the people of Fillmore County show their concern for the environment and choose to dispose of this waste in the most correct way. Your children and grandchildren thank you for your efforts. On September 19, I spent several hours at Forestville State Park chatting with 177 Fillmore County Sixth Grade Students. As in past years, they were very interested in

the different facets of recycling. Their questions and comments demonstrate their concern for the conservation of our natural resources and the need to reduce, reuse, and recycle. These young people understand the need for recycling and are actively involved in the process. After visiting the different learning stations throughout the morning, the kids, along with their teachers and bus drivers, were treated to a gourmet picnic lunch. Thanks to Rick Grooters and the entire Fillmore Soil and Water Conservation District staff for hosting this annual event that teaches our youth about conservation of our valuable resources while having fun enjoying a beautiful autumn day. America Recycles Day will again be celebrated November 15. A couple articles are scheduled to appear in the Fillmore County Journal in the next few weeks. I will be giving you information and tips on how you can perhaps improve some of your recycling habits.

launched. The new website provides educational materials, and current research from the University of Minnesota, in the area of manure management and air quality in livestock production. http://www1.extension.umn. edu/agriculture/manure-management-and-air-quality/ Major categories in the new website are: manure manage-

ment, feedlot and manure storage, air quality, milk house wastewater, manure pathogens, manure treatment, and manure application. The website will also provide an events calendar with local and regional manure management educational opportunities. The revised website includes the release of three major additions: The long-standing UM Extension Bulletin “Manure Management in Minnesota” has been updated, printed, and posted on the web. Results of 12 site-years of trials measuring corn yield response to time of swine manure application have been published as a research report entitled: “Swine manure application timing: Results of experiments in southern Minnesota.” Eight case studies of the economic and environmental response to using grid soil sampling to guide zonal manure application have been posted to the revised Manure Management and Air Quality website. These case studies will be presented in workshops this winter. This website was made possible by funding from the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency, Section 319 Nonpoint Source (NPS) Management Program from the United States Environmental Protection Agency. http://www1. extension.umn.edu/agriculture/ manure-management-and-airquality/ If you have additional questions about this work, you can contact Jose A.

Caboose has rolled into Preston By Barb Jeffers A 1951 Milwaukee caboose has arrived at its destination at the Trailhead in Preston, Minn. after much planning and anticipation by the Preston Historical Society. The Historical Society found the caboose in Mauston, WI., and purchased it from Wayne Grietzen. Mr. Grietzen received a contract for taking old train cars after train wrecks, and also later when the railroad started

to shut down he acquired more railroad cars and equipment. Dick Petsch, President of the Preston Historical Society, stated they had “six or seven cabooses to choose from.” The Historical Society had many fundraisers, donations and volunteer hours worked to bring the caboose to Preston. The 1951 caboose joins a 1939 Milwaukee boxcar that was restored in 2005 and placed at

the Trailhead. The caboose and the boxcar are two elements in a long-range plan by the Historical Society. According to Dick Petsch the Historical Society plans to reconstruct the buildings that were once part of the elevator complex. This includes the scale house, bagging shed, and scale enclosure. Preston Historical Society member Sheila Craig stated that they are working with Steve Edwins of SMSQ Architect Firm of Northfield, Minn. and are waiting for the final drawings of the complex to be completed. Once the final drawings are received, an application for construction will be submitted. The historical complex at the Trailhead has been in the process for 25 years according to Sheila Craig, and is funded by ISTEA, as well as other grants and donations. The Historical Society has approximately 15 active members, with a total of 60 members, some of whom are life-members who do not live close but support the Historical Society. The group meets the first Thursday of each month at 7:00 p.m. at the Methodist Church in Preston, Minn., and are looking for new members. Interested parties can email prestonhistoricalsociety@ gmail.com for more information. The Historical Society honors the past while planning Preston’s future.
