Diane Hernandez brings her photography to Harmony By Jade Sexton

There are moments in life that only happen once, and capturing those moments to remember them forever is important to many people. Diane Hernandez loves helping people record those moments and milestones with her photography. She has opened her own studio, Diane H Photography, in Harmony. Hernandez hails from Texas, and has lived in Minnesota for two years now. She lives in Preston with her husband Ramon and their daughter, Kaylee. When she was in college in Texas, she took photography classes and enjoyed them, but studied graphic design, as she thought that would make a good job. Making photography sort of just happened for Hernandez. “When I was pregnant with my daughter, I wanted to try newborn photography,” she said. “It Diane Hernandez at her studio in Harmony. just kind of happened.” Photo by Jade Sexton

Lanesboro City Council approves partial street vacation By Jade Sexton

A public hearing was held before the regular Lanesboro City Council meeting on October 1 regarding the request by Rick and Cheryl Lamon for the city to vacate a portion of Beacon Street. The Lamons are planning on bringing in a building that is 28’ by 48’ and will be a duplex. Their request is to vacate the grassy area of the street to allow for entrance into the building. From the middle of the street,

40 feet on each side belongs to the city. With the vacation of the portion requested, no changes will be made to the street at all. Rick Lamon said they are going to try to do something that fits in with the city and its historical aspect. There was a question about snow removal, and Andy Drake said he does use part of the grass to pile the snow. He said it should work anyway, but he would like to see how the house would be sitting on the property. There were some questions by

community members at the meeting about why the vacation was needed, and how the house would be set. After the meeting, Lamon went with a couple of people to the site to show them how it was staked out. The council approved the vacation with the conditions that if no improvements are made to the property in a year, it will go back to the city. Also, the city will retain easements for utilities See LANESBORO Page 9 

When she moved to Minnesota, it all fell into place. She found a space for her studio, established her business and a web site, and things happened from there. Newborns are her specialty, but Hernandez also enjoys taking senior pictures and family pictures. She prefers working with people, and she loves working with kids. She does not photograph weddings at this time. “I would rather chase a toddler around,” said Hernandez. “It’s more fun!” Using her trusty Nikon, wearing comfortable clothes with her hair pulled up, Hernandez crawls around on the floor with the kids, getting down to their level and trying to capture their personalities. During a photo shoot with a senior, Hernandez likes to help them express themselves with their pictures. “It’s fun,” she says of the experience. “They are at a stage in life, they are so unique, and it’s a fun time to try to figure out how to

get their personality to show. It’s also fun to see mom watch their kids get their photo taken. It’s a milestone, and it can be very emotional.” The goal she has is to get the best picture she can, something that they can be proud to hand out to friends and family. Hernandez offers baby packages that start during pregnancy and continue through the baby’s first year. She has really enjoyed getting to know people in the area this way. The studio in Harmony is not the only place Hernandez works. She travels often for photo shoots, including the Twin Cities area and her home in Texas. She also does a lot of outdoor photo shoots in the area. Capturing these moments for other people has been very fulfilling for Hernandez. “I love editing See HERNANDEZ Page 15 

R-P continues working towards new elementary facility By K irsten Zoellner

At the September 17 board meeting, Dean Beeninga, of architectural firm ATS&R, and Gary Benson, of ICS Consulting, were on hand with updates on the proposed early childhood through grade 5 facility. A “Review and Comment,” required by the Minnesota Department of Education (MDE), was submitted by Benson earlier in the month. Superintendent Chuck Ehler was confident that it would be expedited by the MDE quickly, so the district may proceed with plans for a building referendum

December 19. Potential tax impact amounts have been calculated for the $15 million project at 20, 25, and 30-year variables and will be a key area of the campaign leading up to the referendum vote. A proposed floor plan, as well as the timeline for the scheduled referendum, was also presented. The Facilities Committee, including board members Kathie Ingram, John Nitecki, and Dan Munson will meet Monday, October 8, at 5:00pm to discuss the project. The district has long sought various funding for their New See R-P SCHOOL Page 14 

JAC’s Bar and Grill opens in Chatfield By Barb Jeffers JAC’s Bar & Grill has opened in Chatfield, Minn. Jeff and Candi Hare opened their new business beginning October 1, 2012. The business is located in the former TaCade’s building on Main Street in Chatfield. Jeff and Candi have been very busy, working full-time, to get the business up and running. Candi stated, “It has been a fun and learning experience getting things ready.”

It has been a lifelong dream of Jeff’s to open a restaurant, and when he and Candi got married in 2009, it became a shared dream. The name JAC’S comes from shortening and combining the owners names, Jeff and Candi. JAC’s specializes in burgers, of which they have 14 to choose from, and wraps. Breakfast is offered every day and the new owners have brought back cran-

C ommentary We need a president who will serve “all the people” By Yvonne Nyenhuis Foreign Policy The Bush administration saw leadership in terms of fear at home and abroad. They talked about “The War on Terror,” the “Axis of Evil,” and “You’re Either With Yvonne us or Against Nyenhuis Us.” We were warned of the Mushroom Cloud and subjected to red and orange alerts, signaling to us the degree of danger of which we should be afraid. President Obama has said that while the danger is real, we should not allow fear to rule our lives. If we do, the terrorists will have won. The Bush administration claimed that only “their” administration could keep us safe. President Obama is more realistic. He has promised to do all that is in within his power to keep us safe. The Bush administration sought to control and dominate the world with threats and intimidation. They saw dropping bombs on our enemies as a way to solve conflict. They never seem to figure out that you don’t win hearts and minds by bombing people. Invading Iraq didn’t make the world safer! John Bolton and the neo-cons that advised Bush are now advising Romney. Niether Mitt Romney nor Paul Ryan have any military or foreign policy experience. They have performed a disservice to our country by criticizing the President at this time when the world is a volatile place. The president is privileged with information at a high security level. That Romney and Editorial Cartoon

Ryan would make inflammatory remarks pretending that they are wiser and know more than the president is inconscionable and irresponsible. They accuse President Obama of being “weak, an appeaser and leading from behind!” This from a president who took out Bin Ladin and 26 of Al Queda’s leaders. Regarding the Economy Before the mid-term election John Boehner and Mitch McConnell both stated emphatically that they were for “outsourcing and deregulation.” I was stunned! Why would anyone vote for a party that was “for” outsourcing and deregulation? Deregulation of the banks brought the scions of Wall Street to their knees. They relied on the Federal Government, who they deride on an ongoing basis, to bail them out. Lack of regulation and oversight gave us the BP oil spill where 19 lives were lost, and the Masse mine disaster where 29 miners lost their lives. Financiers and Corporate CEOs put profit ahead of the health and welfare of workers and the environment. Romney touts his business experience as preparing him to be President. There is a difference between creating wealth and creating jobs! A good part of Romney’s wealth was accrued by outsourcing jobs to other countries. He believes in the “free market” when it comes to housing “let them bottom out!” - the car industry “let them go bankrupt!” But when it came to Wall Street suddenly a government bail-out was okay! Republicans didn’t complain about the deficit when Bush was President. He started two wars, installed a drug plan for seniors and supplied tax cuts for the rich, none of which was

paid for or in the budget. He dismantled FEMA, which he called “an entitlement program!” When Katrina struck, the federal government was unprepared to assist local government in dealing with the disaster. A thousand people died in that debacle. I couldn’t believe it. As Isaac lapped at the doors of the Republican convention, Romney could be heard echoing Bush’s words. He announced that he would cut funds to FEMA. That it’s an “entitlement program.” (?) Presently, Corporate America, Wall Street, and Special Interests control the government. They contribute obscene amounts of money to political campaigns. They pay lobbyists to obtain access to politicians to generate laws and policies that will advance their interests, and they spend millions on PR people who flood the media with lies and misinformation. The effort to make healthcare more affordable and expand access to more Americans has been vilified and misrepresented by those who profit in healthcare as it is. For the last 30 years, the divide between rich and poor has been growing. Romney hopes to get rid of Unions, cut funding for food stamps and school lunches, “repeal” healthcare, dispose of Planned Parenthood, privatize Social Security, turn Medicare into a voucher program, and cut funds for Medicaid. He seeks to limit women’s healthcare choices, including access to contraceptives. (If Romney becomes president, American men will have to get used to sleeping on the couch!) And oh, yes, he will increase tax cuts for the wealthy! President Obama has fought

valiantly for the middle class and those that are struggling to survive, in spite of obstruction he’s met in Congress. He proposed a jobs plan over a year ago which Republicans have not allowed to come to the floor for a vote. According to some experts, the economy could be at seven percent unemployment instead of the eight percent if this plan had been implemented. Mitch McConnell said that the main objective of Republicans should be to see that President Obama should not be re-elected! They don’t want to create jobs or grow the economy. I have a great suggestion for them. Do everything you can to promote jobs and build the economy. You can take credit for it! You know, the way you did during the Clinton administration. Clinton worked with a Republican congress and had a great economy. Republicans are eager to point out that Clinton’s success was to due to them. That’s okay, you do the work, we’ll let you have the credit. Americans are busy people. The swing voters may say, “The ecnonomy is not good, maybe the other guy can do better!” Our future may be decided by those who are not engaged and who have not “picked up the rock to see the bugs crawl-

ing beneath it.” I try to console myself. For four years we have had a President who is not driven by ego, or a desire for wealth and power; who is thoughtful and makes decisions based on facts instead of wishful thinking; who truly desires nothing more than to serve all the people of the United States and do what is best for our country.

Letter about marriage amendment To the Editor, Gay marriage in Minnesota will be an everyday occurrence if the people telling you to vote no on the marriage amendment get their way. They’ll confuse you so you don’t vote and a non-vote is counted the same as a no vote. Iowa was once like us until an activist judge ruled that gay marriage can be legal. Iowa didn’t have a constitutional amendment on the definition of marriage as being between one man and one woman, that’s what we are voting on. The same non vote can be said about the voter ID Amendment on the ballot, a blank vote is really you saying you don’t think your constitutional right to vote should be protected by showing your ID. Cut this out and stick it on your refrigerator or take it with you on Election Day so you won’t be confused. Remember to vote YES on these 2 amendments on the ballot this election. Minnesota’s future depends on you. Please check the following website., www.protectmyvote. com Muriel Hanson Preston MN

C ommentary Letter about frac mining To the Editor, Frac Sand: What is the benefit/impact to Fillmore County? I have followed the discussion of frac sand mining ordinances over the past six months. Frac sand supporters have touted that jobs will be created to support this industry. It is common when a new business locates in an area that there is an estimate of the number of people it will employ. I would like to have an idea of the number of Fillmore county jobs this industry could create. How many more families will be able to live in Fillmore County and send their children to our schools? I was pleased to see plans to limit the number of operating sand mines in Fillmore county.

This must be a component of the final ordinance. The ordinance must be strengthened to regulate the location and the volume of mined sand. The most visible impact of sand mining in Fillmore county will be the increased truck traffic on our highways. How many more hundreds of trucks will be rolling through our towns as a result of this industry? There must be controls placed on the volume of truck traffic in towns where there is significant pedestrian traffic. This is a matter of public safety. Fillmore County has a number of business districts that are located on state highways: Highway 139 through downtown Harmony, Highway 43 through downtown

Letter about Tschumper To the Editor, I was reminded this weekend that our communities in Southeast Minnesota have come a long way since that day in August 2007 when eighteen inches of rain fell in our corner of the State. My neighbor recalled that our State Representative, Ken Tschumper, was instrumental in bringing a delegation from the State House

to visit the flood ravaged area and bringing the Disaster Relief Bill back to St. Paul for a vote; adding to the efforts of citizen volunteers committed to rebuilding our communities. We can all be proud of the way that we pulled together to revitalize bluff country. Theresa Coleman Lanesboro, MN

Rushford, Highway 52 through downtown Chatfield and Highway 250 through downtown Lanesboro. Many of these routes also have schools where students park on the street and children

are often near the street. The permits for sand mines must regulate the volume and routes of heavy truck traffic through our downtown districts. If the ordinance does not specifically

regulate truck traffic, permitted uses have the potential of uncontrolled volume of truck traffic. Marv Eggert Lanesboro, MN

Fire Prevention Week By Jade Sexton The week of October 8, 2012, is Fire Prevention week, and many fire departments are taking advantage of this time to educate young people about fire safety. The Harmony Fire Department will be having an Open House on Wednesday, October 10. During this time, children will be able to see what the firemen look like when they are wearing their gear. According to Fire Chief Bill Hanlon, many children can be scared of the sight of a firefighter in their home and try to hide. “I think it’s important they see us in our gear, and see that we’re not monsters,” said Hanlon. “When they get home, parents can talk to their kids and explain to them what to do.” Every family should have an escape plan and discuss it before a fire happens. Each room should have two exits, with the first exit being the door. If a room is not on the ground floor, and there is no porch roof to jump out onto, rope ladders can be purchased at a reasonable price that work well for getting out of the home. It is also important to establish a meeting place outside the home. Smoke detectors are critical, and checking SEE NEXT PAGE

Remember When… This Remember When column is inspired by a photo in my recent hometown newspaper of my senior year football cheerleading squad. That photo was in the Remember When section of the newspaper---almost 30 years ago! Holy crap… where has the time gone? Seeing that photo had me thinking of all the changes that have come along and how most of us have adapted. For instance, I just received a Facebook friend request from my high school neighbor who I haven’t seen since high school. What a treat that was. Without online media though, I would have been trying to find her address or waiting to get pictures in the mail with the letter she might send. Letters---remember those? When we were in junior high, having a pen pal was the “it” thing and so was sending a postcard chain letter to see how many postcards we could get from outside the United States. It was also a time that we remembered our friends phone numbers. In today’s world, I store your number in my cell phone and simply click on your name; I have no clue what the phone numbers are. However, I can still recite some of the phone numbers of my best friends from high school. We would sing “Jenny, Jenny or the 867-5309 song” as many call it and would add our last four digits instead---because Chatfield

Park Lane Estates

had the 867 prefix. Cool, I know. Hey…can you remember a time when no one used cell phones? Hmmmm…think hard. In the old days without caller ID, we truly didn’t know who was calling---it was a surprise every time! And then, there were moments of craziness as we ran through the house to find mom or dad because someone was calling

“long distance.” Yes, that was a big deal. “Make it quick…,” mom would say! It is so odd to think that so much communication is now through texting. There was also a time when you actually had to ask for a date by conducting a face-to-face conversation or a telephone call. Now, of course, many of those conversations are by text... asking out AND breaking up. And finally, with my recent start back to college, it was interesting to hear the professor talk about times changing for him as well. He said he was

Mini Halloween Cheesecakes (adapted from Martha Stewart)

Preheat oven to 275 degrees F. Line a cupcake/muffin baking pan with cupcake liners. 21 Halloween Oreo cookies, 15 left whole, 6 crushed 16 ounces (1 pound) cream cheese, softened – That’s two blocks of cream cheese 1/2 cup sugar 1/2 cup sour cream 2 large eggs, room temperature and lightly beaten 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract orange gel food coloring Place 6 whole Oreo cookies in a food processor and grind them up. If you don’t have a food processor, put them in a plastic bag and crush them. Set aside. Put 1 Halloween Oreo in each cupcake liner. In a bowl of a stand mixer with the paddle attachment (a handheld mixer works fine) on medium speed, mix the cream cheese until smooth. Add in the sugar and mix until combined. Then add in the vanilla extract. Slowly add in the lightly beaten eggs and continue mixing. Now add in the sour cream and mix to combine the ingredients but don’t over mix. Once the ingredients are combined, use a spatula to ensure that all the ingredients are combined. Add in a small amount of orange gel food coloring and stir with a spatula in order to color the entire cheesecake batter. Throw in the Oreo crumbs and stir to combine. Using an ice cream scooper, fill each cupcake liner with the cheesecake batter, almost to the top. Bake at 275 degrees F for 22 minutes. Halfway through the baking time, rotate the pan. Once the cheesecakes are done baking, chill them in the refrigerator overnight. (keep them in the cupcake pan)

New Victim Services Agency requests funding By Karen Reisner Anne Detlefson, a victim advocate and on the board of Fillmore Family Advocates, requested funding from the county at the board’s October 2 meeting. She requested the same gift from the county ($3,000) or more that had previously been given to the former Fillmore Family Resources (FFR), a non-profit agency that was recently defunded by the office of Justice Programs, Minnesota Department of Public Safety. FFR provided services to victims of domestic violence and child abuse. Due to the defunding FFR has discontinued services and is in the process of closing. The mission of the new victim services agency will be to help all who witness violence or fear violence, according to Detlefson. The agency will be dedicated to community violence awareness, education and prevention. The agency is being formed in response to the void left by FFR. Detlefson said they have some donations pledged and have a temporary office in Harmony. They hope to have a permanent office in Preston within a month. Commissioner Duane Bakke asked whether they will be able to get the large funding source necessary to operate continually. Detlefson said their plan

includes having people in Fillmore County provide advocacy to people in the county. She expects to be funded as locally as possible with some grants, adding the beginning budget goal is $168,000. Commissioner Chuck Amunrud asked if there was a chance to apply for something similar to the grant that supported FFR. Detlefson said five domestic agencies were defunded and three were given new grants. She said they are applying for a grant as a new agency. Amunrud acknowledged that the organization is in its infancy and can provide a basic and needed service. Bakke said he would vote to support the new agency as they did FFR. He said maybe the county could provide some space for them to operate. Commissioner Randy Dahl suggested she speak to Wayne Stenberg, executive director of Semcac, about possible office space. He added the overhead for office space is a big cost. The board seemed to generally signal that they would support the new agency as they had FFR. Other Business In Brief •The purchase of a second Storage Area Network (SAN) was approved to be installed in the Fillmore County Office Building. The first SAN is in

the courthouse. Jeff Cooper, Information Systems, said it will help them manage data better. Bakke asked how much of the information being stored could be removed. County Coordinator Karen Brown said there are regularly scheduled reviews to see if folders and some files can be removed. The installation of the SAN costing $31,240.39 was approved using budgeted Information Systems funds and un-allocated funds equally. The purchase of one laptop and nine PCs was approved due to the fact that Windows XP versions will no longer be supported by Microsoft by early 2014. All computers will need to be upgraded to Windows 7 by that time. •The board approved the removal of Ostrander from 606.01 of the county zoning ordinance, as the city now has its own zoning ordinance. •The board approved the amending of the Wind Energy Conversion Systems Ordinance to allow Micro Wind Energy Conversion Systems in the Ag District to be built without the completion of the CUP process, but with just a permit. Micro systems are those that generate up to one kW and have a tower 75 feet high or less. •A Conditional Use Permit for Jim Koenig to build a total confinement hog building for

historically helped other districts and many in the community are aiming to bring enough of the show’s attention to the initiative that they may also get support. They are encouraging people to log onto the show’s website,, and leave up

The Official Legal Newspaper for Fillmore County

Fillmore County Sports By Paul Trende On September 9, R-P and FC met for a 3-Rivers volleyball contest. The Falcons beat the Trojans 25-18, 25-21, and 25-16. R-P is better than that loss. FC is darn good. All that made the LeRoy-Ostrander Tournament, where both schools were participants, intriguing. Could the teams (play to form and) find a way to meet (in the title game)? FC had no problems, vanquishing there four pool play opponents, PEM (25-12, 25-10), the host Cardinals (25-15, 25-11), Riceville, Iowa (25-8, 25-2), and Glenville-Emmons (25-3, 25-7), in sweat-less fashion. Things were quite so perspirationless for the Trojans. They opened the day dropping set #1 to Blooming Prairie 20-25, only to rally to win set #2 (25-16) and the match (scored more total points). R-P treaded through Alden-Conger (25-14, 25-23). They beat Hope Lutheran (27-25, 25-18), but only after trailing 24-25 in game #1 (with reserves playing) to the non-powerhouse Patriots. R-P then beat Grand Meadow (25-20, 25-17) to win their pool. And thus the Trojans got what they wanted, a re-match with the Falcons. There, their intensity picked up. R-P scored the first three points and led most of the early going of set #1. FC held a brief advantage, but R-P then went on a 5-0 spurt. They wouldn’t trail again (won 25-20). The Trojans kept it up in set #2 (best of three series), again jumping out 3-0. FC, dominant throughout the course of the day, was pressed by the Trojans spirited/competitive play. R-P was just motivated/focused. After a couple early ties, the Trojans took

a 12-6 lead with a 7-0 spurt. They didn’t look back enroot to a 25-15 win. They got revenge. They avenged themselves. They were crowned L-O Tournament champions. In the title match, Amy Todd (11 kills, 3.5 blocks, 10 digs), Emily Wade (11 assists, 4 kills), and Sierra McNamer (2 kills, 3.5 blocks) came up big. Taylor Case (7 kills) and Morgan Malley (15 assists) led the way for FC. The Falcons are 6-1 (3-Rivers), 17-3 (overall), tied for 2nd with AA #7 Caledonia (6-1, 13-4) behind A #1 W-K (6-0, 20-0). Chatfield (5-2, 12-7) is 4th. R-P (3-3, 18-8) is tied for 5th with St. Charles (3-3, 7-9). Trojan Football Takes Shot at #1 Caledonia is the number one ranked football team in Class AA, the two time defending state champions. They’ve won 18 straight. Any squad that wants the biggest test, needs only to look to the week in which the Warriors are the opponents. Week #5 of 2012 was it for 3-1 Rushford-Peterson. When the battle was done, it was unknown who was tested the most though, the emerging Trojans, or the vaunted Warriors. Caledonia struck first with a Levi Schmitz 21-yard FG (3-0). Early in the 2nd quarter, R-P got a big play. Tyler McClellan found Zach Boehmke for a 45-yard gain to the Warrior 13-yardline. The drive was stopped though by a Jacob Swindell pick in the end zone on a 4th and 6 from the nine. On Cale’s next play, QB Alex Varney went around right end 80 yards for a TD (9-0 Warriors). In the 3rd quarter, R-P recovered a fumble, and promptly intensified the game.

McClellan swept right for a 25-yard TD making it 9-7. Caledonia seemingly answered immediately. Ryan Pitts returned the ensuing kickoff 93-yards for six, but a penalty saved the Trojans. The Warriors still started near midfield. Six plays later, Varney found paydirt from 7-yards out. The PAT was missed, keeping it a one-possession game at 15-7. From there, R-P ventured into Warrior territory three times (to the 35, 41, and 48-yardlines). The last intrusion came around the 2:00 mark. It was stopped when, on 4th and 6, Casey McClellan ran for 5 ½ yards. The Warriors got a first down. They ran out the clock. They prevailed 15-7. Yardage was close; R-P 201 total (139 rush, 62 pass), Caledonia 240 (189 rush, 51 pass). The teams were a combined 9-29 passing, for 103 yards, 0 TDs, and 4 INT’s (three by Trojan QBs). Each squad had 3 turnovers. Boehmke (74 total yards), Steve Adcock (13 carries, 62 yards), and T-McClellan (10 carries, 42 yards, TD; 4-14 passing, 62 yards, 2 INTs) led R-P. Varney did the damage (11 carries, 114 yards, 2 TDs) for Caledonia. The Trojans fall to 3-2 (1-1 in 3-Rivers). Home(coming) Cooking In college and the NFL, football teams love to play at home. It’s all about the home-cooked meals. In high school, that theory doesn’t apply as much (no one’s too far from home). After wrecking Southland’s homecoming (newly anointed Class AA #10) Chatfield had their homecoming. They feasted on Fillmore Central. The Gophers didn’t stuff themselves immediately. Ryan Meeker took a bite with a 1-yard TD run (7-0). FC answered right back, giving the Gophers a plate full of 6’2” 195-pound senior RB Dan Gatzke. The Falcons had 18 offensive plays that amassed yardage in the 1st half. Gatzke had 14 of them, including a 46-yard 1st quarter TD reception from Brandon Breitsprecher that made it a 7-6 game. Chatfield answered that, getting a couple Nate Skare to Jayme LaPlante completions, and then an 8-yard helping of Justin Viss (14-6 Gophers). Chatfield added a third TD just before the half (0:20), a Nate Skare 15-yard strike to Reid Danielson, on 3rd and 11. It extended the Goph’s lead to 21-6 at halftime. They gorged themselves in the second stanza, getting unanswered TDs from Jake Neis (28-yard INTret), Cody Bly (10-yard run), and Alex Bradt (40-yard run). The final was 41-6. Neis had 17 carries for 114 yards, getting help from sophomores Meeker (9 carries, 65 yards, TD) and Bradt (3 carries, 58 yards, TD). Viss played sparingly (two carries), and Alex Haffner sat, due to injuries. Gatzke accounted for 153 of FC’s total 241 yards (81 rushing, 73 receiving). FC is 1-4 (0-2). Chatfield is 5-0 (2-0).

Preston reviews street assessment report By Karen Reisner Brett Grabau, Stantec, reported on the street assessment completed by his firm at the Preston City Council’s October 1 meeting. Councilman David Harrison was absent. The purpose of the detailed street assessment is to help the city council and staff plan for street replacement and maintenance. Grabau said they had looked at every street in town and graded the condition of each of them on a ten point scale. He described six types of preventative maintenance and estimated the cost per square yard for maintenance. Grabau noted that some streets that have recently been reconstructed are in very good condition. Most of the street ratings fall on “one end of the spectrum or the other.” They are either in good condition or poor condition. Once road ways get to a certain point of wear, without proper maintenance the condition falls off quickly. The plan takes into account underlying utility problems. Costs almost double if preventative maintenance is not routinely completed. Grabau detailed many recommendations including but not limited to a dedicated city maintenance budget and a review of the streets every few years. In the report the estimated total cost to make all the suggested improvements to the city streets

including both reconstruction and maintenance was $4.9 million. City Administrator Joe Hoffman said this is a big number, but manageable. This is not going to be done in one year. Current street bonds will be paid off in four or five years. Some of the cost will also be paid by assessments. The study will be reviewed over the next six months. Any construction will not occur until 2014. Hoffman noted that 40 percent of the streets were graded on the high end of the scale. Grabau called the report a starting point. Voter ID Councilwoman Kay Spangler passed out some information that she had gathered on the proposed Minnesota Voter ID Amendment which will be on the November ballot. She asked that the other council members take it home and read it and suggested they might discuss it at the next meeting. She stressed that the voter ID proposal is an “unfunded mandate,” which means that local governments will foot most of the bill. “In the first year alone costs are projected to be almost $70 million, of which $63 million will come directly from local governments.” Spangler maintained this is relevant to local government, insisting nothing in the amendment says how it will be paid for. She also said that same day registration will no longer be a

possibility, adding that Minnesota has been one of the highest voter turn out states in the union. It was stated that the apparent reason for the amendment is to cut down on voter fraud, but the “evidence

of voter fraud due to unverifiable same-day registration in 2008 was 0.221 percent.” Councilman David Collett called the proposed amendment “highly discriminatory.” However, he questioned whether it was the council’s place to take a position

on it. Spangler said that other municipalities and counties have made statements concerning the proposed amendment. Mayor Kurt Reicks said it is tough to take a position on this. Councilman Charles Sparks added we have to See PRESTON Page 26 

A Dog Spot in Lanesboro By Barb Jeffers There is a business in Lanesboro, Minn. that is for the dogs. “A Dog Spot” is a small boarding facility for canines. The business is owned by Jill Kelly, Shalise Keating and Sandy Cattanach, who have been involved with dogs their entire lives. The three women were interested in living in a rural area and working with animals in some way. Jill and Shalise used to camp near Lanesboro, and loved the area, so Shalise said the three “pooled their resources” to make it a reality in the form of “A Dog Spot.” Shalise and Jill are former owners and trainers of Paws Abilities Dog Training in Rochester, Minn. and Sandy was employed there as a Certified Professional Dog Trainer (CPDT-KA). Shalise was among the first people in Minnesota to become a CPDT-KA. The women originally met through the Rochester Dog Obedience program. The Kennel is in the lower level of the owners’ home, and is designed to make the visiting dogs feel at home as well. There is a large playroom for the dogs, and 10 kennel runs. There is also a very large fenced in area outside for the dogs to get exercise when weather permits. To reduce stress on the dogs, they are not able to see each other from their kennels unless a dog is being moved in or out of a kennel. Dogs that enjoy playing with other dogs are able to do so under supervision, or if they prefer to be by themselves

they are given private space to play. When asked if it is hard for owners to leave their dogs at the kennel, Shalise stated, “It depends on the person. Some people call every day while they’re gone, which is fine, I would do the same thing.” Many services are provided at “A Dog Spot” along with kenneling such as flea baths, nature walks and nail trimming. The owners of “A Dog Spot” are very knowledgeable about behavioral problems with dogs,

Page 25

and have three dogs that come from the Twin Cities for training. The owners offer obedience classes and interested persons can call “A Dog Spot” at (507) 875-2600. Dogs must have certain vaccinations before coming to “A Dog Spot” so be sure to check with the owners or their website,, for details. There are also specified pick up and drop off times listed which minimize stress on the dogs as well. “A Dog Spot” can be a second home for your pets when you are not able to be home with them.

realize it will be costing a lot of money. Hoffman stated he didn’t want to say no or yes, but said if the amendment was approved by the electorate, the photo ID would be needed even in a city council election. Other Business In Brief •Kathy Dahl, Preston tourism, presented a letter from the Root River Trail Towns group. The group promotes trails and all cities along the trails. She said she had been asked by Julie Kiehne to take the letter back to their communities. Dahl noted that most of the communities have chosen to remain neutral. She said she didn’t want to independently decide whether or not to attach the city of Preston to a letter addressed to the Fillmore County Commissioners and the Frac Sand Committee. The letter encourages the committee to make ordinance revisions that set “reasonable limits

and mitigate the adverse impacts of large scale mining of sand.” The group wants to protect and preserve our area for many generations. Reicks said it is tough for the four of us to take a stand on this issue for all of Preston. Reicks, Collett and Sparks all suggested they remain neutral. Spangler asked if the committee has looked into Lanesboro’s list of concerns as to the economic impact. Reicks said they can address the issue in the future if they need to. •Approval was given for the purchase of a new Henderson Stainless Steel tailgate sand/salt spreader at the low quote from Universal Equipment, Galesville, Wisconsin. The council approved an amount of up to $5,000 for the spreader and a retrofitting of a dump truck to make it compatible. Hoffman noted there was money in the budget for the purchase. •Personnel policy was discussed relating to workers compensation. Hoffman noted that there is a state

leave to cover those three days. Language to that effect will be drafted and brought back to the next meeting.
