Planning Commission gives OK to camping cabins By K aren R eisner

At the Planning Commission’s June 7 meeting, amendments to zoning ordinance 711 were approved which will allow camping cabins including park model campers on a limited basis. The changes to the ordinance will next go to the county board for their consideration. Zoning Administrator Chris Graves explained that the discussion to allow camping cabins started when an application for a Conditional Use Permit (CUP) was received for camping cabins.

During the public hearing, Vernon Crowson, Pilot Mound, said he was appearing on behalf of himself. He had been asked to read a letter written by Rita LeDuc. She felt there were two problems with the proposed changes. LeDuc said most campgrounds are located along a river and she was concerned about additional runoff during a flooding event due to the concrete slabs required for the camping cabins and park models. Secondly, most campgrounds are in remote locations and the cabins will change the appearance of the agricultural neighborhoods. She suggested

that no new campgrounds be allowed beyond two miles of an existing city. Gary Ruskell said the camping cabins will not be allowed in a flood plain and they are only allowed to be 400 square feet. He added her concerns are noted, but that the number of cabins allowed will be limited. The definition of a camping cabin in the proposed amendment reads: “A building or structure that has been constructed or located in a permitted campground for use as an alternative to tents and recreSee CABINS Page 23 

First theatrical play of active murder investigation debuts in Spring Valley By R achel H ammer

Jodi Huisentruit, a 27-yearold KIMT-TV news anchor of Mason City, Iowa, disappeared on June 27, 1995. It is thought she was abducted from her apartment complex parking lot while on her way to the news station at 4:30 in the morning. Jodi was never found; her abductor was never identified. The case remains open to this day, without suspects, without a body, but not without hope. On the seventeenth anniversary of Huisentruit’s disappearance, director and playwright, Debi Neville, with co-founder Gary Peterson of Brave Community Theater in Spring Valley, Minnesota bring this compelling story to the stage with their production “Fade to Black.” To Neville’s knowledge, this is the first play ever written about an open murder case. Creating

a drama from an active murder investigation presented the producers with several ethical and legal issues. They have had to exclude details that are still sensitive to the legal proceedings. With approval from Huisentruit’s family, Neville and Peterson proceeded to navigate the evidence, incorporating actual tapes, reports, excerpts from Jodi’s journal, and findings available to the public from the investigation into the play. “Once you get into this story, it is a very multi-layered, unusual abduction,” said Neville. “I’ve never heard a story like this. There are so many strange, inexplicable elements that you really scratch your head.” Neville described her careful consideration to write the play making sure not to lead people to any automatic conclusion. The complexity of storylines and possible suspects is meant to The cast of “Fade to Black” starring Sarah Kohn as Jodi Huisentruit.

plated where to celebrate two events: Father’s Day and her birthday. She mentioned Riverside on the

Root in Lanesboro, and I said, “We had better make a reservation.” So, mid-afternoon I called to make a reservation for 5:30 p.m. for our family of four. The young lady who answered the phone surprised the heck out of me, in a good way. Upon making our reservation, she asked me if we were attending the show at the Commonweal Theatre. My thoughts stumbled for a bit as a I replied, “Ahh, no, but thanks for asking.”

Call the FCJ at 507-765-2151 to advertise or offer news tips! “Oh, sure, we just want to make sure we give our guests enough time for dinner so they can make it to the show on time,” she replied. I was so impressed for many reasons. As a patron and board member of the Commonweal Theatre, I appreciated hearing that one of the local restaurants in Lanesboro was taking into consideration the possibility that one of their guests may also be a guest of the theatre. In addition, I thought that was a selfless approach to serving customers for the common good of all involved. In a way, this one little question demonstrates how businesses can connect the dots between each other for the mutual benefit of providing a memorable experience. We all know that Lanesboro stands out from the crowd when

it comes to tourism, but it’s not by accident. It takes some work, and I commend Riverside on the Root along with any others who partake in collaborative hosting. When we arrived at Riverside on the Root, we were greeted and seated at a table outside by the walkway. We had a perfect view for taking in all the scenery. Across the street, we looked up at the lofty Brewster’s Red Hotel and observed a couple dining on a patio. They probably saw us, too! I watched garden enthusiasts stop by the planters strategically placed in front of Riverside on the Root, showcasing a wide variety of flowers. As a matter of fact, I don’t think the same flowers could be found from one planter to the See REAL BITES Page 3 

next. I overheard two women discussing the variety, talking about how that would look good at their home. In the background of the outdoor dining experience was a magician preparing to put on a show that would start at 9:00 p.m. that night. Our children caught wind to the fact there would be a magician at the restaurant, and the begging began. “Are we going to get to see the magician?” “No, Olivia and Landon, the

Chatfield School Board looks ahead to next school year By Mitchell Walbridge The Chatfield School Board met briefly for the regular June meeting on June 18 to recap the school year that concluded a few weeks ago and the school district’s summer plans. Both Principal Randy Paulson and Superintendent Ed Harris both agreed that the end of the 2011-2012 school year had a great finish. Learning continued to the last day of school. Randy Paulson also gave the board a review on the year’s SMART Goal initiative that was utilized during the school year. The purpose of the program was to help students achieve realistic goals that the students set for themselves. The students were a school-wide survey through their cell phones. Survey results showed that on average students achieved 1-2 of the 3 or 4 of their personal goals. Student also considered that they would likely use their goal building skills in the future in addition to finding them useful. Since the school year has concluded, Ed Harris and staff members have been dedicating some of their summer to looking ahead to the next school year. Harris had met with office staff, teaching staff, and a curriculum building team to dis-

cuss education challenges and what improvements could be made. There was even a ½ day workshop on June 8 for staff members to collaborate on the challenges. Finally, Harris gave an update on the hiring process for the replacement of Judith Brockway. The board also gave word of the district’s budgeting information. This year, the budget is expected to finish on track once again. All revenue and expenditures are falling within one percent of the anticipated goal. The board also approved a resolution to support the Chatfield Center for the Arts DEED grant application which would bring money that is left over from taxes back to Chatfield. The application for the grant is only being submitted, but strong community support is a key element in order to be awarded for such grants. Before concluding, the board pointed out that the next board meeting is set for a Tuesday— July 17.

revolves around their Green Chili Ranch salad dressing. If you ever get a chance to taste test this dressing, you’ll be hooked for life. As a matter of fact, my wife has searched every grocery store in Southeastern Minnesota to no avail. I really think Riverside on the Root could have great success bottling and retailing that unique dressing near and far. Even if they start out selling it at the restaurant, I know of at least one frequent customer. While I can barely recall what Amanda, Olivia and Landon had for dinner that night, I know we shared a masterful dessert fit for a family. This platter of moist brownies smothered in ice cream, whipped cream, caramel and chocolate syrups, and topped with a couple cherries, really makes me wish that it were socially acceptable to always eat dessert first – before the main course. Mothers seem to frown up that, though. And, upon completing our meal, we visited with some friends (the Hellickson’s) also celebrating special occasions such as Father’s Day. I have to say that Mike and Julie Charlebois, owners of Riverside on the Root, know how to host a gathering for groups of any size. There’s a lot of work that goes into coordinating the presentation of a fine dining experience. The food is superb! I think I’ve said that before. But, what adds to the experience is the ambiance, which can’t be easily duplicated. Riverside on the Root has a niche.

C ommentary The Federalist Papers By Stan Gudmundson I just finished reading an absolutely marvelous book but am disturbed that it has taken me this long to read it. Even more disturbed because it should have been and should be required reading for every American. No student should be allowed to graduate from high school until they have read it. And certainly not Col. Stan from any Gudmunson college. Ever yone has heard of it but not many have taken the time to find out what is in it. “The Federalist Papers,” as writer Johah Goldberg says, “(is) the greatest instruction manual ever written for democratic, republican government.” We live in a wonderful country, but I am reasonably certain that there are few of us who have a clue as to the struggle that went into creating it. Moreover, we have little appreciation for the profound understanding and wisdom of our founding fathers or their philosophical forebears, those dead white males of long ago. What’s to be learned by reading it you ask? We as a people will never have an adequate understanding of what exists today without understanding its beginning. Or put another way, how do you we know where are headed unless we know from where we started? Our founding fathers had an extraordinary comprehension of history. They examined and looked hard at the variety of governments that existed to that time. They extracted the best lessons of history of what constiEditorial Cartoon

tuted a good government based on individual liberty going back to ancient Greece and Rome up through the constitutions of each of the 13 colonies. They had a deep understanding of the political philosophies of the political theorists of that time and before. Locke and Montesquieu are two of the more influential and both remain so today. Mark Levin’s book “Ameritopia” is brilliant expansion of our founding father’s philosophical underpinnings and is a must read. What is also especially clear is that they had a consummate understanding of human nature and the ever-present dangers of power, especially that of encroaching power. James Madison, for example said, “I believe there are more abridgments of freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachment of those in power than by violent and sudden usurpation’s.” I am convinced that their knowledge of human nature and history was far better than ours of the modern day. They recognized, better than we do, that there is never an end in attempts to usurp liberty and take away freedoms. That is why the constitution is written largely to constrain government. The eternal “yeah but we need to solve this or that problem or protect this or that whim” and the corrupting influence of power for our own good pushes and pushes and takes and takes until we no longer recognize or understand who we were, who we are, or where we are going. There are a number of things our founding fathers would not be surprised at. They would understand the principles of modern economics. The Laffer curve, for example, would make

perfect sense to them. Hamilton, in Federalist 22 says that if taxes “are too high, they lessen the consumption, the collection is eluded and the product to the treasury is not so great as when they are confined within proper and moderate bounds.” The authors of the Federalist Papers also were master communicators and writers. There are few alive today who could write as brilliantly or take arguments to the depth these men did. Read it slowly, highlight and underline, and you cannot help but be impressed. Having said that, they were overly optimistic. They believed they had written a constitution that would be followed and modified according to the process they set up. They would have been shocked to find that our country’s leaders would literally not follow the constitution. Today, it is only given lip service. There are many examples but just a couple will do. The Obama administration will not enforce the Defense of Marriage Act. Yet all of our political officials take an oath to uphold and defend the constitution. In addition, this administration is suing Arizona because Arizona is trying to enforce federal law. These are clearly impeachable offenses but we have drifted so far off track, we just shrug our shoulders. Our founders also would never have expected that judges would begin to legislate or invent rights contrary to the constitution. Hamilton in No. 78 insisted that, “A constitution is, in fact, and must be regarded by the judges as, a fundamental law.” They were also adamant that Congress shall, “make no law which will not have its full operation on themselves and their friends, as well as on the great mass of the society...If this spirit shall ever be so far debased as to

tolerate a law not obligatory on the legislature...the people will be prepared to tolerate anything but liberty.” This is Madison in No. 57. A knowledge of the constitution is absolutely critical. We are a nation founded on law and not of men. Today, as our leaders ignore the requirements of constitution and judges legislate from the bench, it is clear we are no longer a constitutional government but a government ruled by men. We have actually regressed. And that is a prescription for utter failure. To survive, we must return to a nation based on laws and not on the capricious whims of the judiciary or executive branch. Letter about solicitation calls To the Editor, Just received another solicitation call. This was from an organization for Missing Children. I asked what percentage went to the organization and he said 15 percent, the rest for expenses(mostly salaries). Unbelieveable, and I told him so. Please be very careful with phone solicitations and always ask how much actually goes to the organization. We have a lot of good causes right around here that very much need our extra dollars and do not spend 85 percent on themselves!! Again, please be very cautious. I have been told that a well-run organization should at least be able to use 75 percent or more to the cause. Linda O’Connor Preston, MN

Reading the Federalist Papers would provide our country’s citizens with a better understanding of why it is important to do so and it would act as an antidote for the corrupting influence of power and ideologies. Finally, one of the side benefits of reading the Federalist Papers is that the first time a professor says something about “dead white males,” to most new college students conversant with our beginnings, the professor will be laughed out of the lecture hall. That can’t be all bad. Irrespective of “IQ,” any idiot with a Ph.D. who would say anything like that deserves to be laughed at.

Correction In last week’s article on the Fillmore County Board of Appeal and Equalization, it was stated that pasture land value was down from $2,600 in 2011 to $2,000 in 2012. It should have read that the estimated market value for pasture land was down from $2,900 in 2011 to $2,600 in 2012. Also, the Green Acre value went up from $1,700 to $2,000 for pasture land.

C ommentary Nation’s founders had religion By Mike Hopper On June 11, the Fillmore Journal published a lengthy commentary by Herb Panko which declared that most of our nation’s founders were “deists, agnostics, and atheists.” Let’s consider what some of our Founders said and wrote, and see if that is true. Patrick H e n r y (Revolutionary General & Ratifier of the US Pastor Mike ConstituHopper tion) wrote: “Being a Christian. is a character which I prize far above all this world has or can boast.” (The Life of Patrick Henry of Virginia by A. G. Arnold) “This is all the inheritance I can give to my dear family. The religion of Christ can give them one which will make them rich indeed.”

(Will of Patrick Henry) John Jay (Original Chief Justice of the US Supreme Court, President of Congress) wrote: “Condescend, merciful Father! to grant as far as proper these imperfect petitions, to accept these inadequate thanksgivings, and to pardon whatever of sin hath mingled in them for the sake of Jesus Christ, our blessed Lord and Savior; unto Whom, with Thee, and the blessed Spirit, ever one God, be rendered all honor and glory, now and forever. (The Life of John Jay by William Jay) John Hancock (signer of the Declaration of Independence and President of Congress) called on the entire state of Massachusetts to pray “that universal happiness may be established in the world [and] that all may bow to the scepter of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the whole earth be filled with His glory.” (A Proclamation for a Day of Public Thanksgiving 1791) Samuel Adams (Signer

How many volunteers does it take? By Jason Sethre Publisher of the Fillmore County Journal & Olmsted County Journal Cell phone: 507-251-5297 Every year, KTTC recognizes “10 Who Make A Difference,” and Preston’s own Dan Christianson was recognized this past week for his continuous volunteerism and leadership with a wide variety of proj- Jason Sethre ects benefiting Preston, Fillmore County and the entire region supported through the Southern Minnesota Initiative Foundation.

Whether school board, National Trout Center, Habitat for Humanity, Preston Area Community Foundation, or Christ Lutheran Church, I have seen Dan play a tremendously active role in the community, and this award is welldeserved. To be honest, I would even say it is long overdue. While he leads F & M Community Bank wearing the hats of Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Board, I am most impressed by how his employees are also actively involved in the community. With companies cutting back on their support of civic responsibilities simply to save a few pennies, volunteerism takes a hit. When a company encourages their employees to help the community by any means possible, good things happen.

[and] above all to cause the religion of Jesus Christ, in its true spirit, to spread far and wide till the whole earth shall be filled with His glory.” (Proclamation for a Day of Fasting and Prayer) George Washington (our first President, “Father of his country,” Commander-in-Chief of the Continental Army) declared: “You do well to wish to learn our arts and ways of life, and above all, the religion of Jesus Christ.

Fitzpatrick) Charles Carroll (Framer of I see Carole Bond involved in the Preston Area Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors. I see Chuck Aug involved in the Commonweal Theatre and the Preston Area Community Foundation. And, I am only brushing the tip of the ice berg. There are many employees at both F & M Community Bank locations getting involved in the community. I know F & M Community Bank is not the only business making this commitment to volunteerism, but my commentary was definitely prompted by Dan Christianson’s recognition by KTTC. On www.fillmorecountyjournal. com, I posted the KTTC interview with Dan regarding his recognition with this award. In that interview, he said, “Well, I think that most of the people who donate their time, donate their money, and do things to try to make our communities in which we live and work better, don’t look for the recognition a lot of the time. But, it’s very much appreciated to be recognized as someone who does give back and tries to do a lot for our communities.” As I look around Fillmore County, I continually see opportunities for volunteers to step in with a helping hand. And, it’s not always about money. We need people. The old adage that 10 percent do 90 percent of the work is very true. We need to increase our percentages, otherwise volunteers get burned out. I know. It’s happened to me before. I think that’s what has happened with our annual Fountain Trail Days event -- where our family lives. We have a small population to begin with, and there are already so many people who are so busy. Volunteers are hard to come by, and they can get spread very thin taking on too many things. I hope it’s not a lost cause.

the Bill of Rights) wrote: “On the mercy of my Redeemer I rely for salvation and on His merits, not on the works I have done in obedience to His precepts.” (Letter by Charles Carroll to Charles Wharton) John Adams (Signer of the Declaration of Independence; Signer of the Bill of Rights, Second President of the United States) wrote: “The general principles on which the fathers achieved independence were the general principles of Christianity. I will avow that I then believed, and nowbelieve, that those general principles of Christianity are as eternal and immutable as the existence and attributes of God.” (In a letter from John Adams to Thomas Jefferson on June 28, 1813). Daniel Webster (US Senator, Secretary of State, “Defender of the Constitution”) wrote: “[T] he Christian religion - its general principles - must ever be regarded among us as the foundation of civil society.” (Mr. Webster’s Speech delivered in the Supreme Court of the United States, February 10, 1844)

“Whatever makes men good Christians, makes them good citizens.” (The Works of Daniel Webster) Noah Webster (Revolutionary Soldier, Educator, “Schoolmaster to America”) wrote: “[T]he religion which has introduced civil liberty is the religion of Christ and His apostles. This is genuine Christianity and to this we owe our free constitutions of government.. The moral principles and precepts found in the Scriptures ought to form the basis of all our civil constitutions and laws.” (History of the United States by Noah Webster) These do not sound like comments from atheists, agnostics, or deists. Additional quotes from these men and from other Founders can be found (with references) at asp?id=8755 While not all of our Founding Fathers were believers, many were dedicated followers of Christ, and as a result Christian principles helped shape the foundation of our nation.

Obituaries Eloise Grebin Eloise Grebin was born in 1917 of William Walter and Rose Gresbrink Gossman in rural Winneshiek County, Iowa, and was valedictorian of the Canton Minn. High School class of 1934. She completed N o r m a l Training (for Eloise Grebin teachers) and taught in a one-room country school before she married Francis Grebin of rural Preston, Minn. In 1943, they bought a farm north of Harmony, Minn., where they raised five children. Eloise and Francis, active members of the Nativity Catholic parish of Harmony, retired from farming and moved into Harmony in 1974. After Francis suffered a stroke, Eloise was his faithful caregiver for many years until his death in 1993. The couple had enjoyed traveling together throughout the U.S. After Francis’ death, Eloise volunteered at her parish church and at the nursing home; she was a sharp bridge and Scrabble player; and she was an avid reader. Her friends and family remember her as a spirited woman with an active, inquiring mind—and a woman of the Spirit, who prayed her progeny into healthy births and healthy lives. Eloise died peacefully on June 16, 2012. Her living relatives include her sister Gertrude Ellestad, son Gary (and Wanda Broadwater) – father of Jerome, Sheryl (Johnson), Gregory, and Steven; daughter Rosemary Palms – mother of Amy and Michael; daughter Kathleen (and Richard McKay) – mother of Natalie (Rominger), Brent, Sarah (Fix), and Nicholas; son John (and Jean Lillibridge) – father of Jeffrey, Barbara (Connor), Bradley, Christopher, Corey, and Joshua; and daughter-inlaw Carol Benter Howard – mother of Todd and Michelle. Eloise was preceded in death by her husband Francis, son Michael, sister Irene Hardwick, brothers Clair and Louis Gossman, great-grandson Blake Eckert, son-in-law Charles Palms, and daughter-in-law Frances Pieper Grebin. The funeral was at Nativity Catholic Church in Harmony on Tuesday, June 19, 2012. Marjorie Virginia Hamlin Marjorie Virginia Hamlin, age 94, formerly of Spring Valley, Minn., died Tuesday evening, June 19, 2012, at Madonna Towers in Rochester where she had been a resident since January 2011.

She worked at the Sward Kemp Drug store in Spring Valley as a clerk/ bookkeeper until after WW II when she entered into marriage with Richard Hamlin on December 19, 1949, in Spring Valley. Richard and Marjorie lived and farmed in the Cherry Grove area until 1949, then moved to Spring Valley to continue farming until 1981. They then retired and moved to their rural home three miles north of Spring Valley. After Richard’s death in 1995, Marjorie continued to care for their rural home until 2004 when she moved to the Hillside Apartments in Spring Valley and then to Madonna Towers in 2011. Marjorie loved working with Richard on the farm and raising their two children. She enjoyed reading, visiting with family and friends and being on her tractor mowing the lawn. She was known for her correspondence with friends and relatives of all ages. She was a member of Faith United Methodist Church and was an active member on the group that served at church functions. Marjorie is survived by her daughter, Norma Jean (Dave) Amundson of Oronoco; son, Gary (JoAnn) of Spring Valley; four grandchildren, John (Hwa) Amundson of Greenville, Wisc., Michael (Mary) Amundson of Oronoco, Darcy (Steve) Erickson of Rochester and Kristine (Scott) Hildebrand of Rochester; and greatgranddaughter, Elizabeth Amundson of Oronoco. She was preceded in death by her husband, Richard; one brother, Virgil; two sisters, Wilma Stennis and Lucille Ladsten; two brothers-in-law; and a sister-inlaw. The funeral will be 11:00 a.m., Monday, June 25, 2012, at Faith United Methodist Church in Spring Valley with Pastor Beth Perez officiating. Burial will be in the Spring Valley Cemetery.

Sermon series in Lanesboro and Wykoff

What do Woody Guthrie, Allison Kraus, Whitney Houston, and Merle Haggard have in common? All four will be featured in an upcoming sermon series at Lanesboro and Wykoff United Methodist Churches this July. Lanesboro’s services are Sunday at 8:30 a.m. and Wykoff’s are Sundays at 10:30 a.m. The sermon series looks at the lives and music of the performers and seeks to identify what the gospel or good news looks like to them. It’s really fun. July 1 features Woody Guthrie, best known as an American singer-songwriter and folk musician. His musical legacy includes hundreds of political, traditional and children’s songs, ballads and improvised works. Guthrie traveled with migrant workers from Oklahoma to California and learned traditional folk and blues songs. His best-known song is “This Land Is Your Land” and many of his recorded songs are archived in the Library of Congress. . The July 8 sermon is about Ronald R. TePoel Ronald R.

sixth on Online Magazine COVE’s list of the 100 Best Pop Vocalists. In 2008, Rolling Stone listed Houston as the thirty-fourth of the 100 greatest singers of all time. Elysa Gardner of the Los Angeles Times said, “She is first and foremost a pop diva . . . . No other female pop star . . . quite rivals Houston in her exquisite vocal fluidity and purity of tone, and her ability to infuse a lyric with mesmerizing melodrama.” July 15 features Alison Krauss, an American bluegrasscountry singer, songwriter and fiddler. She began studying classical violin at age five but soon switched to bluegrass. Krauss has remained grounded and real. Deeply introspective as an artist, she’s commensurately outgoing and spontaneous in conversation—both sides of her character evidencing a lifeembracing humanity. In her work, Krauss has managed to consistently locate the fertile common ground between traditional modes and topical themes. The series closes on July 22 with a sermon on Merle Haggard, country music song writer, singer, and instrumentalist. Ninian Dunnett of the BBC described Haggard as “a man

who sings . . . with rare conviction: the son of Oklahoman immigrants to the Bakersfield oilfields, and somebody who lived in a box car, served time in San Quentin, dug ditches and drove trucks. When he sounds like Bob Wills, it’s not a coincidence: the great innovator of western swing left Haggard his fiddle when he died. And when he falls naturally into the rocky honky-tonk of the Bakersfield brand of country, it’s because – along with Buck Owens – Hag invented that whole fiery answer to the slick ‘countrypolitan’ of Nashville.” Called “the poet of the common man,” Haggard has won just about every music award imaginable, and in 1994 was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame. The Lanesboro and Wykoff United Methodist Churches are both served by Pastor Amanda Larsen who will speak on July 1, 8, and 15. Guest preacher John Lage will speak on July 22. The Lanesboro church is located at 507 Parkway Avenue South in Lanesboro; the Wykoff church is located at 236 Gold Street South in Wykoff. For more information, call Pastor Amanda Larsen at 507-8849835.

Fillmore County Sports State Golf: Hungerholt ties for 4th By Paul Trende With experience comes expertise. Lanesboro senior golfer Paige Hungerholt entered the 2012 Minnesota Class A state girl’s golf meet with a lot of the first. She made the trip to Pebble Creek Golf Course in Becker (with teammates Johanna Bearson and Kiah Halvorson) for her fourth consecutive meet. After a 10th place (tie) finish in 2009 (sophomore), and a 13th place (tie) finish in 2010 (junior), she saved her best performance, the expert part, for her last go-round. After day one, the 5’11” redhead was in a four-way tie for first place, having shot an initial round of 82 (39, 43). On day two, she remained in the hunt (was a couple shots off the lead) for a state championship all the way up to the 16th hole. A double-bogey on that par-5 doused the state title hopes. Paige finished the day with an 85, but finished the tournament with a 167: good enough for a three-way tie for 4th place with familiar foe Kayley Borkowski of Lewiston-Altura and

Ali Wood of United South Central. L-A’s Kaitlyn Hennessy and Southwest Minnesota Christian’s Emaleigh Vreeman tied for second with 166’s. The 2012 girls champion was Rachel Grey of Legacy Christian Academy with a two-day total of 161. As for the other two Burros competing, junior Johanna Bearson and senior Kiah Halvorson each fared quite well also. Bearson, in her third state appearance (an error from FCJ Sports two weeks ago), was dead consistent. Not only did she shoot mirroring 90’s day one and day two, she shot mirroring 43’s and 47’s on the front nine and back nine each day. Her 180 tied her for 20th place (of 84 total golfers). She bettered both her score (195) and place (34thtie) from her last state appearance two years ago as a freshmen. The senior Halvorson wasn’t too far behind. Kiah had to fight back from a day one 94. A day two 89 did the trick, giving her a twoSee SPORTS Page 14 

When selling a property what are the steps after accepting an offer for the seller?

When accepting an offer on your property your real estate agent will follow the steps needed to move forward with the sale and guide you through the process. 1. Deliver your Abstract or Owners Title Insurance Policy to your real estate agent. 2. The Home Inspection usually is scheduled within 5-10 days after acceptance of the offer. 3. Appraisal of your property is usually within the first 10-14 days after the offer is accepted. 4. If you agreed in the Purchase Agreement to repair or replace items, it is best to address those items prior to the Home Inspection and Appraisal to save you a re-inspection fee for the items not being completed prior to Inspections. 5. Your attorney will also need your social security numbers, full legal names of all owners and spouses of the real estate being sold. 6. Loan Payoff- Your attorney will need the name of the Mortgage Holder, loan number, and contact information to request a loan payoff for the date of closing. 7. Call the utility companies 5-7 days prior to closing to have the utilities transferred to the new owner on the date of closing. 8. Keep your home owners insurance active through the date of closing to ensure you are covered. Cancel your insurance once your property has closed. We discuss in detail with our clients the contingencies of the transactions.

Scott Springer, attorney

A levy was just placed on my bank account. Can they levy my prepaid Visa, too? Yes. Prepaid credit cards are just like a savings account. In fact, several prepaid cards are now paying interest on money placed into the card account. Any debt owed to you can be garnished or levied, with relatively few exceptions. A bank account can be thought of as a demand loan that you make to the bank, meaning the bank must repay it to you upon your demand, subject to the conditions of your account agreement. The difference between a savings account and a prepaid credit card is the way in which you demand your repayment. To a creditor, however, they are identical for purposes of a levy. If you are having problems with creditors, Springer & Gumbel offers consults regarding debt adjustment or repayment strategies and bankruptcy. If you’re having problems collecting money owed to you, Springer & Gumbel can help you with that, too.

507.765.2117 Dr. Linda Sifford How can I protect my pet from heat stroke this summer?

Heat stroke can be a serious and even life threatening condition in your pet. Fortunately, it is easily preventable by taking these precautions and watching for the warning signs. Always make sure that you pet has access to fresh clean water. Also, make certain that your pet has plenty of shade available. Never leave pets in a closed car! Temperatures in cars can exceed 120 degrees in 10 minutes even when it doesn’t seem to be warm outside. If a heat advisory is announced, it is best to keep pets indoors until the temperatures cool off. Warning signs of heat stroke include: excessive panting, drooling, bright red gums, staggering, lethargy, and vomiting. If you suspect that your pet has heat stroke, first, try moving your pet to a cool area. Then soak your pet with cool water. If it is available, use a fan to cool your pet more quickly and always call your veterinarian for advice.

Dan Bader Consultant Hwy. 16 & 43 • RUSHFORD, MN 507-864-2969 do my wheels need to be realigned after the struts have been replaced?

507-398-9115 • tony Russel

On most vehicles they do. Here’s why. MacPherson struts are more than overgrown shock absorbers. They’re an integral part of your vehicles suspension. They replace the upper control arms and ball joints and serve as the steering pivots for the front wheels. When the strut assembly is unbolted and removed from the vehicle, the original alignments of the suspension is lost-unless the position of the camber bolts and upper strut plate are first marked so they can be reinstalled in exactly the same position as before. But this only works if the same original strut is being put back into the car. If the strut is being replaced because it is leaking, damaged or work out, the dimensions of the new strut will usually vary enough to cause a change in wheel alignment. So wheel alignment should at least be checked to see if adjustment is necessary (which it usually is). On some import cars, the struts are ‘rebuildable’. The housing has a removable nut that allows the old guts inside to be dumped out and a new cartridge installed. On these vehicles, it should not be necessary to realign the wheels after rebuilding the strut.

Q: I plan on designing my own flyer to promote my business. What are some of the basics I should know? What are some of the traps I want to avoid? A: Just remember, at Perfect Glossy all design work is included in the price. But if you really want to try it on your own, here are some basics. K.I.S.S Keep it simple, to the point, keep it short and don’t expand the text with fluff words. No one likes to read fluff. It’s annoying. Make certain that it is well edited. THREE BASIC STEPS 1. Get their attention - use a bold headline or a special relevant image. Don’t use clip art if possible. Try to develop your own image or look. 2. Create a Desire – You have their attention. Now, in as few words as possible present your special offer or special service. Give them something to be interested in. 3. Call to Action- Give them the information they need to respond. Make it easy to contact you for your service or product. TRAPS TO AvOID Don’t lose of your objective. Don’t get bogged down with trying to be too perfect. Make sure you know your goals. Don’t put your name at the top of the flyer. Put it near the bottom. People will remember the last thing they read. use a bold headline. use a font that is easily readable and will not detract from the message. Arial Black is solid and easy to read. use Times New Roman in the main body. Again, make sure that the font is readable and not too busy to understand. If your flyer may be printed in black & white at some point, avoid black on red, gold on black, yellow on white, pale to middle blue or green on silver as these will not produce readable images. Avoid color paper. White paper will work just fine.

Rushford 864-7771 • Houston 896-3127 St. Charles 932-4100 • Lewiston 523-2277 Goodview / Winona 452-4241 gary Hoff 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.

ADD ON OPTIONS Have you ever been shopping for a vehicle and have found what you thought was the perfect one except it might be missing one or two options? Well, this might not be a deal breaker. There are certain options that can be added on as an aftermarket purchase. These can include remote start, cruise control, power seat, stereo systems, moon roof, hitches, etc. One option that can’t be added is rear air & heat on vans & Suvs. If you have any questions on what can be added to a vehicle, fell free to stop in and we can discuss it.

Have a Happy and Safe 4th of July!

day total of 183; good enough for 25th place (tie). Kiah also came in with state experience, having participated in 2009 as a sophomore (finished tied for 28th). The Lanesboro trio fared very well, but can probably only wonder “what if.” What if, as a team, they had defeated Wabasha-Kellogg for second place in the Sub-Sectional meet, and thus advanced to the Sectional meet. There, with all things remaining the same, they would’ve had the lowest team score (defeated Lewiston-Altura) and advanced to state. They would’ve kept the Cardinals from winning their second straight state crown (they shot a 709 and won by 15 strokes). Conceivably, the Burros could’ve won their first title. With Hungerholt, Bearson, and Halvorson combining for a 530, the Burros fourth golfer (likely Bryn Harmon) would’ve only needed to shoot a 193 (194 for a tie), finish middle of the pack, for Lanesboro to defeat second place Ivanhoe-Lincoln High (724) for a state championship. Harmon shot a 189 at the state tourney in 2010 as a sophomore. Burro coach John Smith: “The Lanesboro golf team will miss the golfers that we will be losing to

graduation. The girls have provided the program and school an unforgettable ride that will be very hard to match. Paige, Kiah, Bryn and Johanna never lost a conference match or conference championship. They were the first Lanesboro golf team to ever make it to the state tournament. They set the school scoring record for a match. Along with many other individual and team accomplishments, they put Lanesboro girls golf on the map the last six years and they will be truly missed on the course by the coaches and fans. I want to thank everyone for their contributions to both the boys and girls teams over the past year, especially the golfers and the families that have put in so much time and effort.” On the boy’s side of things, only one county golfer competed at state. Fillmore Central Falcon senior Andy Todd represented his school (and the county). In his first state appearance, Todd bettered over half the field. He did so the hard way, by fighting back from a rough day one. An 88 had him placed in the fifties (of 88 golfers) heading to his second 18-holes. He recovered on day two with the 15th lowest score (tie), a 78. The two-day 166 pushed him 20-plus places up the leader-board into 33rd place, a fine turn-about and very good showing.

Food For Life By Jade Sexton

Beating the heat Summer is in full force, and it’s a hot one for us already. I don’t have air conditioning where I live, and it has been a challenge. However, there is a part of me that doesn’t really mind all that much. Sure, the humidity is stifling, and last night my thermostat read 87 degrees in the house, but I survived. I lived in central air for the last several years, and I became spoiled. As soon as it got slightly uncomfortable, I would turn the air on. Now I have to make do. I drink cold drinks, go swimming with the kids, let them play in a pool or with the hose, and take cool showers before going to bed with the fan blowing on me. What I am getting at is that right now I am in the real air, the fresh air, and there is something to be said about that. I do, however, prefer that fresh air be a little drier than it has been! The heat of the summer has been changing the way I eat lately. I don’t feel like cooking, and the oven sure isn’t going to be turned on for any amount of time. Last night I made sandwiches and smoothies for supper. Sometimes I don’t have an appetite at all, especially when I have been working around

the house and sweating all day. Luckily, fresh produce is all around us and more fruits and veggies are on their at local farmer’s markets. Grilling is one of my favorite things about summer. Almost nothing feels better than sitting outside smelling the food cook and watching the kids play. I love to grill vegetables with some olive oil and spices, or to grill a large portabella mushroom that has been marinated in some olive oil and garlic. After eating a meal that has been grilled to perfection, dessert should be something cold. My kids and I love to eat fresh fruit, and it makes a perfect addition to a summer meal. My daughter Grace recently shoved her entire face into a chunk of watermelon bigger than her head and ate the entire thing. But for something special that feels like a rich dessert, this chocolate pudding recipe is actually nutritious. You can feed it to your kids and not feel too guilty. There is no processed sugar added. Although the sugar in the fruit is a natural sugar, I am guessing it wouldn’t be the greatest thing to eat the whole batch yourself. It’s still carbo-

Chocolate Blender Pudding

(Recipe by Angela Liddon)

½ large avocado, frozen (flesh only) 1 large ripe banana, peeled and frozen 1 cup milk (dairy, soy, almond, whatever) 2 tbsp. cocoa powder 2 soft medjool dates, or 4-6 regular pitted dates ½ tsp. pure vanilla Pinch of salt Shaved chocolate and shredded coconut, to garnish 3-4 ice cubes, add until very cold Freeze banana and avocado beforehand. This makes for an ice cream-like texture. Add milk to blender first, then frozen avocado, banana, cocoa powder, pitted dates, vanilla, and a pinch of salt. Process until smooth. If you have a cheap blender like mine, it will still work. Just be patient! Add ice cubes and keep processing until it is very cold. Pour into a parfait glass or bowl. Add shredded coconut and shaved chocolate on top if you want. Enjoy!

Monday, June 25, 2012 hydrates. But seriously, do what you have to do. I won’t judge you. It’s still better than eating an entire package of Oreos. I have made a chocolate pudding with avocado before, and found it was to rich for me, probably because it had almond butter in it. Also, I could taste the avocado a little and it was


kind of weird, despite my love affair with avocados. I tried this recipe with a little trepidation, but I was not disappointed. It was lighter, you cannot taste any avocado, and it was perfect for those chocolate cravings, and perfect for a hot summer day. It felt less like pudding and more like eating a bowl of ice-cold

chocolate ice cream. I always keep bananas in the freezer for making smoothies, but this was my first time freezing an avocado. It works! I plan to do it more often, so I don’t have to waste them if I don’t eat them in time. Also so I can make this whenever the cravings hit.

Fillmore Central approves staffing changes By Jade Sexton During the Fillmore Central School Board meeting on June 21, 2012, the board approved many items, including changes in personnel. The board approved the hire of Shira Anderson as a daycare aide. They also approved the hire of Kelly Hill as a kindergarten teacher for the third section. Tenure was approved for licensed teachers Sara Niemeyer and Janet Prinsen. The board approved the termination of non-tenured teachers Connie Lindstrom and Heidi Harstad. A few more coaches were approved for fall sports. Jordana Whalen was hired for 8th grade volleyball, Brady Grewe for 7th grade volleyball, and David Broadwater for 9th grade football. The school board also approved the resignation of John Torgrimson from the school board at the end of the year. Torgrimson said he felt it would be better to have someone elected to his position, and he will stay on until someone takes over. Torgrimson said it has been a privilege to be on the

For example, there were about six people in Jodi’s apartment complex who heard things, heard screams, at four in the morning, and never reported it at the time.” Peterson founded to raise awareness of

Huisentruit, Gary Peterson narrates the story playing himself, as he was at the time a news producer for KAAL-Austin, and there are eight other cast members who rotate through a multitude of characters, all based on real people. Some of those real people portrayed in the play will be in the audience June 27th. Along with Huisentruit’s family, Amy Kuns plans to attend. Kuns was one of Huisentruit’s co-workers at KIMT in Mason City, and it was she who called Jodi that fateful morning to ask why she was late

keep the audience guessing, until the end, when all fades to black. Because of the provocative ending, Neville and Peterson plan to host a question and answer session immediately following the show to further absorb and engage the public’s interest in Jodi’s case. “These are real people,” Neville said, “We don’t want to portray Jodi as simply a victim. We have tried to show Jodi for who she was.” Sarah Kohn plays Jodi

The Official Legal Newspaper for Fillmore County Huisentruit’s case, to pay tribute to Jodi’s life, and to encourage those who yet have information to come forward. The website is a forum for the public to peruse “the facts” that have been released, to put the puzzle together, and to comment upon and to question police procedures that may have contributed to Jodi’s disappearance. “This isn’t just a play,” Neville said. “If this case is ever going to be resolved, it’s going to come from awareness of this story, and it’s going to come from people coming forward with missing

information.” The original production of “Fade to Black” has been produced in cooperation with the Southeastern Minnesota Arts Council Inc. through funding from the Minnesota State Legislature, presented by Brave Community Theatre. The play debuts June 27-30 at 7:30 in the evening at Spring Valley Community Center.

R-P takes a chance on unusual funding By Kirsten Zoellner At a special board meeting June 2, the district was encouraged by architectural firm ATS& to look at other funding avenues for R-P’s New School Initiative. The district has been diligent in seeking out funding for the proposed $20 million, preK-12 facility, including recently looking at a separate Flood Mitigation Bill, a Cooperative Facilities Grant, and various state bonding bills, in addition to an expected referendum of some amount. The most recent alternative funding source is a grant through the Minnesota Business Development Capital Projects

Program. Funded by the 2012 Bonding Bill Appropriation Committee, only $42 million set aside for this grant program, so the district has chosen to seek out only a portion of the needed funding for the initiative. “I’ve been advised that this funding source is not intended to support schools,” acknowledged R-P Superintendent Chuck Ehler. “It’s for capital projects, but we do meet the criteria.” That criteria is spelled out, in no ranking of priority, as: •Creation of new, full-time equivalent jobs, retention of existing jobs, or improvements

in the quality of existing jobs as measured by wages, skills, or education associated with those jobs. •Improvement in the quality of existing jobs, based on increased wages or improvements in the job duties, training, or education associated with those jobs. •Increase in local tax base, based on demonstrated measurable outcomes •Demonstration that investment of public dollars will induce private investment •Whether the project provides health or safety benefits •Number of residents served by or who will benefit from the


project •Demonstration of local support •Capacity of the project to attract out of state revenue •Strong impact in return on investment and cost benefit ratio While the district has been told, as in other times, not to get their hopes up, it’s been assured that the district does meet all criteria and the Ehler and the board believe it’s worth the effort to follow through with grant submittal. Even in the least, this may open up other opportunities for the district to seek out funding. “We’re rattling the tree a bit. Why can’t schools be eligible for these type of funds? If we’re not

Page 21

eligible, show us what your standards are and we’ll meet them. We need to continue to nudge people and say, ‘Why not? We met the criteria,” noted Ehler. The district will be submitting a proposal for $7.5 million of the grant funding. “It’s like the lottery,” Ehler added, “You can’t win unless you buy a ticket, and we can’t get it unless we apply.” In other news, the school board has approved the revised application to the Minnesota Department of Education (MDE) seeking to be the authorizer of the Dakota Area Community School. Les Hittner, administrator of Dakota school, was on hand at the last board meeting to clarify the role of the authorizer See R-P FUNDING Page 23 

review. Changes were made to policies 607 through 612 during the second reading. The PR Committee discussed promoting Kingsland in the county newspapers. Principal James Hecimovich spoke in regards to the Gateway Academy which was well attended and the children were “highly engaged” according to Hecimovich. Graduation went well. Principal Hecimovich discussed the Ramp-up to Readiness program ,which is a career education program for grades 6-12. Very few schools who went through the rigorous application process received the grant. There has been ipad and netbook training ongoing in the last two weeks. Superintendent McDonald also spoke enthusiastically about the Ramp-up to Readiness Program. He stated that Kingsland was one of 20 schools selected in the entire state. Partch property has been acquired and plans will be discussed as to what the future use of the property will be.

There is a need to cooler sensor and alarms in case they were to fail. The district would be notified if this were to happen, and such a situation has occurred in the past. There is enough money in the Food Service Fund to cover the cost of the sensors and alarms. Health and Safety Committee met and discussed the removal of asbestos in both buildings. A low bid was received from Environmental Plant Services for the removal. The following resignations were accepted: Eli Hill as Industrial Tech teacher, Amanda Schwarck as Art teacher and Key Club Advisor, Jake Dodge as Assistant Principal and Athletic Director, Bruce Rohne as Senior Class Advisor, and Jeremy Tesch as B-squad baseball coach. The following hires were approved: Andrew Brouwer as Industrial Tech teacher, Gereld Stockdale as bus driver, Jill Thalmann as .5 additional weight training coach, Mollie McMahon as .5 additional weight training coach. Currently there are over 50 students weight lifting on a regular basis.

The FCJ reaches over 12,000 household each week.

Motion approved to set the date for filing Affidavits of Candidacy beginning July 31 and ending August 14. Revision of 2011-12 Capital Outlay budget was approved raising the amount from 370,000 dollars to 596,391 dollars. There were expenses not planned, such as iPads at a cost of almost $42,000. The Health and Safety budget was approved. Food service budget was discussed and approved. Kingsland receives 22.25 cents in commodity revenue in reimbursable meals. Reimbursable meals are healthy meals. 86,477 lunches were served in the 2011-12 school year. Motion approved to accept the first reading of the Handbooks for staff and students. Approved the Minnesota District Literacy Plan which must be filed by all schools. There will be a special School Board meeting on June 29 primarily to approve the filling of the open positions that remain. Next regular meeting will be held July 16, 2012 at 7:00 p.m.

Lanesboro School Board meets briefly By Jade Sexton The Lanesboro School Board got together for a very brief meeting on June 19, 2012, to approve a few items. The board made a formal recognition of state golf participants Paige Hungerholt, Johanna Bearson, and Kiah Halvorson, as they did very well in competition.

In Personnel, the board approved the resignation of Lindsay Mace, who was the Health and Phy. Ed. teacher. They also approved the administrator contracts for Brett Clarke, James Semmen, John Smith, and Jeff Boggs. A contract was also approved for Cheryl Halvorson, who recently retired, to work part-

time next school year. She has been teaching English with the district for 34 years. The board authorized getting bids for milk and bread. They also approved using the budget from last year until the numbers come in from the state this fall.

and why they’re hoping MDE will approve the application. MDE had previously been the charter school’s authorizer, but now it wants out. Winona Area Public Schools then sought the position, only to be notified three months later that the rules prohibit the owner of the school facility from being the authorizer. “It took them three months to realize the conflict,” noted Hittner. “We have a a June 30th deadline, or we cease to exist. MDE has assured us that it will

put the application at the top of the list. Should the state approve R-P as the authorizer for the twoyear agreement, there will be added responsibilities to the district, as well as benefits. “My fear is that we’re adding another layer onto your busy schedule,” cautioned board member John Nitecki. “You’re already spread thin.” “I know there will be work associated with it, but I like new challenges and new opportunities,” responded Ehler. “I think it’s a good fit,” added board member Greg Smith. “It’s a good fit. The culture there fits well here.” “It is,” said Ehler. “It’s exciting. It’s a new direction” The next regularly scheduled board meeting is Monday, July 16, at 5:30pm, in the high school biology room. The public is encouraged to attend.

ational camping vehicles. This includes park model campers.” Duane Bakke suggested the zoning administrator send a letter to every campground to explain the change in the ordinance. There was some discussion about whether existing campground owners would have to come in for a new CUP if they wanted to put in some camping cabins or park models. Graves said they will need a building permit for either as they will be attached or anchored to a concrete slab. Bakke didn’t see the need for the CUP as long as they weren’t expanding and still had the same number of sites. Ruskell agreed if they weren’t increasing the size of the campground, they shouldn’t need a new CUP. After more discussion, it was decided that the density for the camping cabins is one per every six recreational camping vehicle sites. Tent sites would not count toward existing camping sites to allow more cabins. Also, the camping cabins must be owned by the campground owner with the intention of renting them out. The title will be in the campground owners name. Bakke said they are trying something brand new and want some good parameters on it, adding we may change it later. The amendment requires all camping cabins to be on a concrete slab and they must have a minimum setback of 100 feet from the edge of the floodplain, shoreland, toe or shoulder of the bluff impact zone. If the campground ceases to exist, all camping cabins must be removed and the property can not be subdivided. There must be two parking spaces per cabin. They can be up to 400 square feet in size and no more that 18 feet in height. No new campground may be located within 1,000 feet of rock or sand extraction sites or of any registered feedlot. Feedlot Travis Willford and Craig Hanson, State Line Swine LLC, requested a CUP to build a 122 foot by 164 foot by 8 foot total confinement swine finishing barn for 2400 head. They are located in Section 36, Harmony Township. No EAW is required. Mike Frauenkron, Feedlot, said everything was complete and there is plenty of land for manure application. He noted there was an anonymous request that no manure appli-

cation would be allowed on Sunday. Frauenkron requested that this condition be added and noted the owners were not opposed to the condition. There were no other comments from the township or the public during the public hearing. Frauenkron said the well will be grouted and then certified by the state. He will be on hand to observe the sealing of the well. The CUP was approved with two conditions: No manure application on Sunday and the securing of state certification of the sealing of the well. The application will be sent to the county board for their consideration. Other Business In Brief •Graves noted that one existing campground lies within a

Page 23

commercial district. He suggested campgrounds be added as a permitted use in the commercial district. There will be a public hearing on this proposed ordinance change at the next planning commission meeting which is to be on July 19. •There was a short discussion on the recent sand tour. Steve Duxbury felt it helped correct a lot of misinformation. Bakke added we need to find out what is legal and what is not from MnDot concerning the covering of loads of sand in transport. The next sand committee meeting is June 13. There was discussion about having a joint sand committee and planning commission hearing in July or August.

Root River Outfitters expands offerings By Jade Sexton Mike and Julie Charlebois of Lanesboro purchased a building and began Root River Outfitters many years ago. Along with renting out tubes, canoes, and kayaks to people wanting to enjoy the water, they also opened up their restaurant, Riverside on the Root. Two years ago they moved the outfitters right down the street and were able to expand their offerings. A recent project made tubing down the river a lot easier for

customers. Behind the building, Mike and his employees worked hard to excavate the steep hill there to add a trail and stairs for instant access to the water. “Now the tubers don’t have to walk down the street,” said Mike. “They can come right behind the building.” According to Mike, it was two weeks of “blood, sweat, and tears,” to get the project done. “That used to be a collection area for old concrete from con-

struction projects,” said Julie. “I am really impressed with the work these guys did.” Mike said they started from the bottom up, and the steps each took a full day. They would pull out boulders that would take three or four men to move. The inside of the Root River Outfitters building is still evolving. Right now they sell items people would need for tubing or canoeing, as well as snacks and drinks. Julie said they would like to expand to include t-shirts and other clothing items. Along with the project, Mike and Julie purchased a school bus. They are using the bus to transport people to the river. The price of rental includes the shuttle service. “This way there will be less vehicles on the road, and less waiting time for customers,” explained Julie. The 2012 season started early, and started wonderfully for seasonal businesses like Root River

Outfitters. The heat of Memorial Day weekend alone made people flock to Lanesboro looking for a way to cool off. The latest work done to the place is just a part of what they would like to do with their business. According to Julie, they would like to have a mural

painted on the back wall of the building, but it needs to be approved by the Historic Preservation Commission first. They also have dreams of expanding the building, but are happy with how things are going right now. “It’s 20 times more beautiful than I imagined,” said Julie.

Root River Outfitters invested in a beautifully landscaped stairway down to the Root River to create another access point. Photo by Jade Sexton

This work would be done an eight-tenths of a mile section of the river that lies within the city of Preston. The outdoor environment work would include floodplain protection, wetland and habitat restoration and improved public access. The city council unanimously passed a resolution of support for the proposal and grant request. Councilman David Collett asked about the loss of property tax revenue from those parcels. City Administrator Joe Hoffman said the dollars this project will bring in will more than offset the loss of revenue from those parcels. Members expect that Napa would relocate in town if that parcel is sold. Other Business In Brief •The 2011 audit was reviewed by Pam Ristau. She complimented the city staff on their good work. Ristau issued an unqualified opinion, saying she was comfortable that the council and staff are watching the city’s budgets. Total net assets increased in 2011. Hoffman praised Sheila Marzolf, saying she should be very proud of the way she manages the books. Ristau agreed. The council accepted the audit as presented. •Variances requested by Dustin Arndt were approved as recom-

More than just Art in the Park By Barb Laganiere Lanesboro’s Sylvan Park overflowed with visitors from near and far for the 32nd annual “Art in the

Park” on Sunday, June 17. Sylvan Park is the perfect place to hold such an event, with vendor booths placed in amongst the shade

trees, which helps draw a crowd of thousands. There are typically 85-95 vendor booths each year, with this year being no exception. The variety of art is astounding with items ranging from wood furniture to Hmong needlework. Sara Decker of the Lanesboro Arts Center, which organizes Art in the Park, said, “The food is a big draw.” The curry and rice sold out last year so there were plans to make a larger amount for this year’s event. The J.O. Volleyball girls also had a booth as a fundraiser, selling hamburgers, hot dogs, and brats. Other foods available were egg rolls, pulled pork, and pie a la mode. Last year, over 1000 pieces of pie were sold. The children especially like the animals in the petting zoo. Tovah Schroeder, 13, of Rushford says the Alpacas are her favorite animal at Art in the Park. The Alpaca booth sells wool products. Back this year was the traditional favorite “Make a Tie for Dad” booth, being that Art in the Park is held on Father’s Day. There were many dads sporting some fancy ties! A new musical group this year was the Café Accordion Orchestra, which plays an eclectic mix of French flair, Latin heat, and Bohemian attitude. The opening act was Patchouli, which plays Indie-folk music. There were children’s dance

Sara Decker put it best when she said Lanesboro’s Art in the Park is so popular because people can “let go and relax.” The Lanesboro Arts Center does a wonderful job of letting people do just that.
