Benefit to be held for premature twin girls Khloe

By Jade Wangen

When most people find out they are going to have a baby, they expect everything to go normally. Mothers expect they will be pregnant for 40 weeks and deliver a healthy baby. But life doesn’t always work out that way. Marshall and Kellie Hoiness of Eden Prairie, Minnesota had several unexpected surprises on their journey to parenthood. First, they discovered they weren’t having just one baby, but twins. Then Kellie’s pregnancy was plagued with health problems, and the twins had to be delivered at just 25 weeks gestation. Marshall Hoiness grew up in Rushford, where his parents, Jim and Gayle still reside. According to Gayle Hoiness, twin girls Kennedy and Khloe were born at Abbot Northwestern Hospital in Minneapolis on August 21. Kennedy weighed 1 pound 4 ounces, and Khloe weighed only 15 ounces. The twins were taken to the children’s hospital immediately


and placed in separate rooms. Each girl has her own 24-houra-day nurse by her side. “Abbot Northwestern has an underground tunnel, and it’s two blocks from the children’s hospital,” explained Hoiness. The condition that caused the girls to be born so early was called HELLP syndrome. This caused significant decrease in blood flow to the babies, and affected Kellie’s blood platelets and liver enzymes. Hoiness explained Kellie had no symptoms, and this condition doesn’t usually show up until later in the pregnancy. Fortunately, they noticed the babies weren’t growing like they should, and they discovered the condition while Kellie was in the hospital. Both girls have had a couple of surgeries and have fought breathing problems and infection, but they are growing and improving every day. According to Hoiness, Kennedy is up to four pounds, two ounces, and Khloe now weighs three pounds. Their mom and dad have been able to help take care of them and hold them, which has helped them progress

and thrive. “We are so excited to possibly take her out of the isolette today,” said Hoiness of Khloe, who was born smaller and has had more struggles. “She may get to start oral feedings next week.” Nobody knows just how high the medical bills will climb throughout this ordeal. The babies will be in the hospital at least until their original due date, which is early December, and they have needed a lot of care already. To help the family with the costs of their medical care, a benefit is taking place on November 12 at Rockwoods Grill in Ostego, Minnesota. Hoiness said the benefit is being called “Sweets for the Sweeties,” and it will be a dessert benefit with a silent auction. Items for the silent auction are pouring in already, and many donations have been made to the family. Also, the Vikings Cheerleaders will be at the benefit to sign autographs, get pictures taken, and put an autographed calendar in the silent auction. See TWINS Page 3 

County moves toward a shared Community concern community services administrator over frac sand mining By K aren R eisner

The Fillmore county board unanimously adopted a resolution declaring their interest to develop a contract with Winona County for services of a community services administrator at the board’s November 1 meeting. County Coordinator Karen Brown confirmed on Wednesday that the Winona County

board decided to go forward toward a shared administrator at their meeting on November 1. The next step is to develop the position for advertisement. Both counties have been active members of the Southeast Minnesota Human Services regional redesign to create a more efficient consumer driven system of services. Fillmore County created three divisions headed by a Social Services Manager, a Veterans

Brown noted these changes and the reduction of three positions has helped the county realize savings. Support staff has more flexibility in that they can work in one of the other divisions when necessary. The board has looked at the possibility of a part time community services administrator to See COUNTY Page 10 

From two million to two

By Berta Aug Picture round-the clock public transportation, Arab-owned Internet cafés, Lippizaner horses clipcrossing the stonefilled walkway to their Sunday performance, and zither music a la The Third Man. This is the city of two million I know. It was recently named the number one city in the world to live in and there is no doubt in my mind it deserves the ranking. I’ve made the trip numerous times – at least a dozen now-and the landscape of this age-old metropolis is ever-changing if at a slow, laid back pace. Russians and Poles now drive the Mercedes-laden taxis and

“local” tour guides are Hungarian, yet you can still grab a great cup of Joe at Café Hawelka, third generation owned, not by Arabs, but Austrians. Vienna, Austria is my beloved city of two million. To get a sense of landscape and architecture, one best climb aboard a tram (Strassenbahn) and ride it to the end of the line. Biedermeier, Roccoco and Baroque styles are all at your window. As fate would have it, though, after teaching Business English to eager young students at the University of Economics and Business Administration, I boarded a plane once again. Destination: a

city of two. An adjustment, you ask? Imagine this. Be it birds, deer, raccoon, or woodchucks literally scratching at my doorstep, it is wildlife and I that address each day now vs. millions of Hapsburg-era citizens drinking a Melange, Obermaier, or Achterl. Gone are the days of teaching to classes of 75 plus students, enjoying a plate-sized Wiener Schnitzel pounded so thin it resembles a crepe, and conversations in Austrian style German

over politics and religion. I’ve adjusted to this difference in landscape – in Austria overlooking a large courtyard, or hillside fortress depending on the day vs. a wide expanse of green, farm buildings and gravel roads. My preference is both as both have their positives and reasons to contemplate why life brings us to the place we’re at in the moment. Why choose? Language becomes more of a barrier where American English is

widely spoken as this city of two, too, has its own foreign language: Gooby, Smokey, Shaggy, Snappy, Snake and Bepop. I struggle to follow along as relatives rattle along in their own kind of slang. However, the tiger lilies are beginning to show, the grill’s almost ready to go and the porch swing ever ready to enjoy a stateside cup of Joe. We’ve made the transition from two million to two – we’re grateful for the ability to compare.

Two local men killed recently in logging accidents By Jade Wangen Thursday, October 20, 2011, Kenneth Erding, age 60, was killed when a tree fell on him while he was operating a chainsaw just south of Preston. Erding was the owner of the Fillmore Saw Mill. He was logging with another person, who left the scene and returned to find a tree had fallen on Erding. Erding was pronounced dead at the scene. Two weeks later, on November 2, Lyle Greenlee, age 75, was killed in a similar accident

C ommentary Is the American dream history? By Karen Reisner The American Dream as defined by James Adams (1931) is a better and fuller life by everyone, with opportunity for each according to ability or achievement regardless of circumstances of birth. For many throughout our history the American Dream has represented freedom to live according to one’s beliefs. Karen Reisner For many today the American Dream can be realized given the opportunity to achieve prosperity and wealth. With a shrinking middle class the American Dream seems to be more and more out of reach for many. The Congressional Budget Office, a non-partisan agency, reported on October 25 that the after tax income for the top one percent of income earners has had a 275 percent boost over the past three decades, while the after tax income of the bottom one-fifth has had a mere 18 percent gain during the same period. The middle income group saw less than 40 percent growth over those three decades. The number of Americans making $1 million or more jumped by eight percent since 2009, while 50 percent of US workers earn less than $26,364. These are eyeopening statistics. This growing income gap between the wealthy and everyone else is the rallying cry of the protesters in recent weeks which began with the “Occupy Wall Street” movement. The protesters see the growing inequity as a barrier for the so called “99 percenters” to achieve upward mobility which is the American Dream. However, financial inequity is a given in a free market economy. Maybe it’s really the exploding gap Editorial Cartoon

between the “haves and the have nots” that has precipitated the protests. More limited opportunities are afforded by today’s economy and the resulting frustration is fueling the anger. The reality is that technological growth and automation have slammed the doors shut on certain jobs that will never come back. Are our country’s best days behind us? This is a question which is discussed at length in a thoughtful look at America’s position in the world today, yesterday and in the future. I am currently reading “That Used To Be Us” by Thomas Friedman and Michael Mandelbaum. I checked it out of the library and I recommend this read for anyone trying to put into perspective where we are as a country and where we can be in the future. In the preface, the problem is clear, “America today is not healthy-economically or politically.” The authors are optimistic that the United States will meet its challenges as it has throughout its history to “sustain the American Dream for future generations.” The first step is to acknowledge that there is a problem and admit that change is necessary. “When you come to see your exceptionalism as permanent, you set yourself up to wind up less than exceptional.” They list five pillars for renewal, including “education, infrastructure, immigration, research and development, and regulation.” The foundation for economic strength is education. Education builds opportunity. One Barrier to Recovery One section of their book is headed with two words “Political Failure.” This political failure is recognized by the public in a recent CBS News/New York Times poll which gives a nine percent approval rating to Congress, an all time low. Congress is so caught up in hyper-partisanship that they

are paralyzed in a time where they need to be in motion. Contributing to our dysfunctional Congress is the power of special interests. We are at a place in our history where major, long reaching decisions must be made to secure a prosperous future. Special interests look out for themselves with little regard to the cost for the country going forward. One thing that is imperative for Congress to produce is a longterm deficit reduction plan. The only way this can happen is political compromise. As I’ve stressed in past columns, the “safe seats” that are held by many representatives have made compromise near impossible. Safe seats allow for ideologically extreme candidates to be elected by both the left and the right, and these representatives have tunnel vision and can not see the value of compromise. They are a threat to our country’s future, perhaps the greatest threat to our country’s future. The inability of our politicians to work together and cooperate for the good of the country in a crisis only extends and magnifies the problem; it has crippled our government. Political ideologues are “fiddling as Rome burns.” The projected future deficit will be driven by healthcare, especially Medicare, due to the number of baby boomers that are and will be retiring, longer life spans, advancements in medicine, and costs that are rising at a much faster rate than the economy. These increases in the deficit will be unsustainable if reforms are not put into place. The current debt and deficit, however, is not due entirely to government health programs, but a combination of decisions made during the last decade. The Bush tax cuts reduced revenue nearly $2 trillion over the last decade, plus two long expensive wars have been fought using a credit card. At least $700 billion has been spent in just Iraq. Add to that, a long serious recession which has caused govern-

ment expenditures to be made and continue to be made to boost a weakened economy, plus a significant reduction in revenue because of the recession. Recessions are part of the business cycle, but the depth of this one was magnified by financial institutional greed and the fact that many households lived well beyond their means. Together these factors have provided the conditions for a “perfect storm” toward a ballooning debt. Super Committee The bipartisan committee or Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction (three democrat senators, three republican senators, three democrat representatives, and three republican representatives) is tasked with reducing the deficit over 10 years by $1.5 trillion through cuts or additional revenue or a combination of both. This will only be a first step and it is questionable whether the fractious politicians can accomplish this by November 23. It will require compromise on both sides. This super committee hopefully can do what the normal committee process in Congress has failed to do; agree on spending cuts and revenue increases for deficit reduction. Our democratic system of government is dependent on compromise and cooperation to be effective. If the committee does come up with a plan, then the House and Senate will need to approve the plan with a simple majority by December 23. No amendments will be permitted, and no extended filibuster will be allowed in the Senate, just an up or down vote. Cuts and revenue increases would not have to kick in immediately as they would likely put pressure on the weak economic recovery. Additional targeted spending could be appropriate to protect and strengthen the recent growth in the economy. If the committee or Congress fails to approve a 10-year deficit reduction plan, pre-set automatic spending cuts are mandated for 2013, including $600 billion in defense spending and a comparable amount in domestic spending. There is economic value in a concrete long term plan to reduce the deficit as it will provide stability for businesses and individuals allowing them to plan and make decisions for their future which is a positive step for the economy. A long term plan will strengthen our position in the world. Republicans want to reduce overall spending, cut or restructure Medicare and Social Security, without increasing revenue. Democrats want to increase revenue especially by increasing taxes for the wealthy and maintain, as much as possible, Medicare and Social Security as they are. Democrats won’t agree to Medicare reform or cuts without raising more revenue and Republicans say they won’t raise taxes. Neither party has it right; over the long term, it will require both additional revenue and significant reforms to entitlement programs, along with a shrinking of the defense budget. Defense spending (20 percent) and Medicare and Medicaid spending

(40 percent) comprise the largest expenditures today by the federal government. Achieving a fair compromise will be a tall order especially on the doorstep of a presidential election year. Patriots are those that support and defend our country. Right now supporting and defending our country includes making her economically and politically strong which requires cooperation and working together toward that common goal. Politicians who signed Grover Norquist’s Tax Payer Protection Pledge have limited their flexibility and have put themselves in a straight jacket, when it comes to negotiation. We elect people to represent us, not Norquist. The only pledge that should be honored is the pledge to do their best to serve their constituency and their country. Norquist’s pledge is just one more barrier causing Congress to be dysfunctional. Congress’s job is to make laws, laws which solve problems and are clearly in the best interest of the country and its people. We do not elect people to fight, it is not a boxing match. Unfortunately, many are focused on raising money for the next election and serving the big money donors who brought them to Washington. The Citizen United versus Federal Election Commission (2010) severely weakened McCain-Feingold campaign finance reform (2002). With the Citizens United decision of the US Supreme Court the unrestricted money flow will only compound the problem. Our tax code is riddled with favors to big money interests and it deserves reform. The unfairness in the tax code produces and escalates inequities and makes the American Dream that much harder to grasp for many of the masses. To get back on course, the only solution is “shared sacrifice.” Even with fair solutions like those offered by SimpsonBowles, the National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform, nearly a year ago, it will take longer to climb our way out of this hole than it took to dig it. Hopefully, the Super Committee can at least take that first step. Somewhere between the policies of the left and those of the right are the policies that will move the whole country forward. Frankly, a large percentage of the country is in the center; we just don’t have any real representation in Congress. A team of horses pulling together will turn the earth; two horses pulling against each other just dig holes. One thing is very clear. To ensure the American Dream for future generations, we have to accept the fact that corporations and individuals will all have to be willing to take less and give more. Most, if not all of us, will have to do our part contributing to a strong comeback. The good news, with cooperation and American ingenuity there is a way out and a way to restore and strengthen the American Dream.

C ommentary Letter about Rushford liquor store To the Editor, There is one concept that everyone in the United States ought to agree on by now. That is, it is essential that government not be involved in running businesses that cannot be otherwise run by private citizens or industry. The Rushford liquor store is a case in point. What the liquor store makes in profits or doesn’t make is irrelevant. Liquor stores, bars, saloons, or anything like them belong in private hands, not in the government’s, and that is true in Rushford, St. Paul, or Washington, D.C. It is especially pertinent in Rushford where the city is competing with other private businesses in the community, as well as with other communities in the surrounding area. That is just plain wrong. Close that darn thing down and drive a wooden stake through the heart of the unconscionable “government running business” idea. Stan Gudmundson Rushford, MN

Veteran’s Day Submitted by Jason Marquardt, quoted from the website, http://www. Veterans Day gives Americans the opportunity to celebrate the bravery and sacrifice of all U.S. veterans. However, most Americans confuse this holiday with Memorial Day, reports the Department of Veterans Affairs. What’s more, some Americans don’t know why we commemorate our Veterans on Nov.11. It’s imperative that all Americans know the history of Veterans Day so that we can honor our past and present service members properly. A Brief History of Veterans Day Veterans Day, formerly known as Armistice Day, was originally set as a U.S. legal holiday to honor the end of World War I, which officially took place on November 11, 1918. In legislation that was passed in 1938, November 11 was “dedicated to the cause of world peace and to be hereafter celebrated and known as ‘Armistice Day.’” As such, this new legal holiday honored World War I veterans.


In 1954, after having been through both World War II and the Korean War, the 83rd U.S. Congress -- at the urging of the veterans service organizations -- amended the Act of 1938 by striking out the word “Armistice” and inserting the word “Veterans.” With the approval of this legislation on June 1, 1954, Nov. 11 became a day to honor American veterans of all wars. In 1968, the Uniforms Holiday Bill ensured three-day weekends for federal employees by celebrating four national holidays on Mondays: Washington’s Birthday, Memorial Day, Veterans Day, and Columbus Day. Under this bill, Veterans Day was moved to the last Monday of October. Many states did not agree with this decision and continued to celebrate the holiday on its original date. The first Veterans Day under the new law was observed with much confusion on Oct. 25, 1971. Finally on September 20, 1975, President Gerald R. Ford signed a law which returned the annual observance of Veterans Day to its original date of Nov. 11, beginning in 1978. Since then, the Veterans Day holiday has been observed on Nov. 11.

“They did their share” On Veteran’s Day we honor Soldiers who protect our nation. For their service as our warriors, They deserve our admiration. Some of them were drafted; Some were volunteers; For some it was just yesterday; For some it’s been many years; In the jungle or the desert, On land or on the sea, They did whatever was assigned To produce a victory. Some came back; some didn’t. They defended us everywhere. Some saw combat; some rode a desk; All of them did their share. No matter what the duty, For low pay and little glory, These soldiers gave up normal lives, For duties mundane and gory. Let every veteran be honored; Don’t let politics get in the way. Without them, freedom would have died; What they did, we can’t repay. We owe so much to them, Who kept us safe from terror, So when we see a uniform, Let’s say “thank you” to every wearer.

ArendAhl lutherAn ChurCh Rural Peterson, MN • 507-875-2466 Worship every Sunday at 10:30 am • Sunday School at 9:00 am Pastors ron & Janet Warnes

Great Is Thy Faithfulness, O God my Father!

Arendahl celebrates God’s gracious faithfulness as we worship each Sunday at 10:30 a.m. This week, we continue our fellowship: you are welcome to come to our bazaar Saturday, November 12 for fellowship, fun, and fine food! Bake sale and supper begin at 5:30 p.m.; auction at 7 p.m. with proceeds going for missions and WELCA projects. Our 155-year history has shown that God remains the same through all the changes that time may bring; and our congregation strives to carry out our mission to “teach and invite others, while encouraging and equipping God’s children to grow in their Christian faith.” To complete this mission, we have joined together with Grace, North Prairie, and Pilot Mound churches and are served by Pastors Ron and Janet Warnes. Sunday school is held in conjunction with our neighbor church, at North Prairie at 9 a.m. each Sunday. Our youth are active in preparation for Holy Communion and confirmation. The youth group meets monthly for fun and mission events. Our youth have done mission work for Belize, for flood recovery, and currently for Grace Place. Family events such as hayrides, breakfast brunches, caroling, and movies occur monthly. Our parish nurse is shared by the other churches in our four-point parish, providing blood pressure checks, referrals, home visits, and wellness information in our newsletter. Our “Faithfully Fit” walking group meets Monday mornings. Our WELCA meets monthly for Bible study and mission work. This group of committed women sews quilts for distribution to those in need; they also manage fund-raisers, such as our bazaar, to help support local organizations who provide hope to those in need. Their work is balanced by fellowship and celebrated with an annual outing. Arendahl’s worship is informal, welcoming, and filled with praise in song. Our eldest soloist, Bertram Boyum (93) often solos; our Sunday school shares their songs; and three members of Highway 30, a Christian singing group, share roots at Arendahl. Hwy. 30 recorded their first CD “Richly Blessed” last winter. It is available at Rushford Foods or from group members. We “pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge - that you may be filled with the measure of all the fullness of God.” (Ephesians 3) Our congregation hopes to show that love by being the hands and feet of the Christ in our outreach to our community and the world. For more information about Arendahl, please come to worship! You may also call our church office at 507-875-2466 for more information. We look forward to seeing you!

On March 23, 1939, he married Angeline Moen at the Washington Prairie Parsonage in rural Ossian. The couple started farming in the Mabel area, then in 1945 purchased a farm in Preble Township where they remained until they started spending the winters in Mabel. After retiring from farming he sold real estate for a couple years. Roger was a member of the Mabel United Methodist Church and the Masonic Lodge. He loved farming and was proud to be a farmer. He had served on the school and church boards. He enjoyed playing Euchre and Cribbage, and his herd of Belgian horses, but most of all enjoyed the times spent with family. Roger is survived by three daughters; Barb Solum of Spring

Fillmore County Sports Streaking

7). The big game atmosphere was a bit much for the young FalconsSouth. They dropped the first two sets 25-18 and 25-16. They rallied in the third though, as Alex Peterson and Taylor Case found more open spots for their kills. After a little extra volleyball, FC won 28-26. W-K then jumped out early in set four, led throughout, and prevailed 25-17 (3-1). Katie Cavalco (22 kills), Lexi Kanz (18 kills) and company were too much for Peterson (12 kills), Case (12 kills) and company. FC’s very good 2011 campaign finishes at 24-7. Mabel-Canton’s affair with 3-seed Lewiston-Altura was much more dramatic. The Coug’s took set one (25-21), dropped the second and third (13-25, 20-25), but rallied long and hard in the fourth (30-28) to force a deciding fifth game. There, M-C was one point away from victory (14-13). L-A held. The Card’s got to one point away. M-C held. The Cards got to one point again, and finished (17-15), winning the hotly contested to-the-wire match 3-2. Trojan killer Jenny Mundt was also a Cougar killer. She finished with 35 spikes. M-C’s Belle Sand (18) and Lydia Geving (13) combined for less than that. The Cougars finish an excellent season at 31-4. See-Saw Ends With Gopher VB in Sub-Finals One can’t say Chatfield (17-11) came out like balls of fire against 3-seed Lake City (14-13) in the SubSection 1AA East VB semis. They dug a 0-5 hole in game one, rallied for a 10-all tie, but then lost 25-20. The Gopher attacks kind of flew anywhere and everywhere. But set two saw the Goph’s tighten things up. They led from wire-to-wire and won 25-17. Set three went back (Chatfield led 3-1) forth (Lake City held a 9-5 advantage) and back again (Chatfield took the reigns 11-10). They held them (holding off a Tiger push that closed the score to 22-21) until declared victorious 25-21. In set four, the Tigers stole a page from Chatfield’s set two playbook. They led the entirety, winning 25-19. And thus it came down to the final push to 15(+) points. Like the first four games, it was a yoyo-like (Gophers 5-3, Tigers 8-5, Gophers 10-8). The two teams then tied at 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, & 18! At one point, Lake City had a 16-15 lead and Kenna Moechnig’s attack was ruled out, getting the Tigers into a victorious uproar. But a back judge ruled ‘tip’, giving the Gophers the point, keeping them alive. They lived to be

By Paul Trende How tough is sub-section 1A in volleyball? Two teams with doubledigit win streaks did battle in the quarterfinals. Six-seed RushfordPeterson (21-12, 10 straight) visited 3-seed Lewiston-Altura (24-4, 13 straight). Amy Todd was the Trojans’ best weapon in game one. She notched five ace serves, but seven R-P attack errors benefited L-A. In the end, Todd took her spot deep with R-P trailing 24-20. The score narrowed to 24-23, but a service error gave the Card’s the win. The competitive loss shook R-P. They fell easily 25-16 in game two. It looked like the match woul be anti-dramatic. It looked more so that way when L-A led game three 14-11. But it was nipand-tuck down the stretch (ties at 21-25). A pair of attack errors on the Cards part ensured R-P wouldn’t go home skunked (27-25). That shook L-A. R-P amassed a 16-10 game four lead. The Card’s got composed though. Seniors Jenny Mundt and Natalie Kalmes asserted themselves. At one point, the duo accounted for eight straight points. An 18-13 Trojan lead became a 22-18 Cardinal lead. R-P got it to 21-22, but no closer. L-A prevailed 25-22 (3-1). Mundt was the difference (26 kills, 4 blocks, intimidation). L-A also got quality attacking from Brooke Schilling (12 kills) and Kalmes (7 kills), plus 46 assists from setter Maddie Hess. R-P’s Kenzie Lind amassed 20 kills; Todd had nine. Kendra Crawford had 20 digs. A successful Trojans 2011 campaign ends at 21-13. M-C, FC Advance… Fillmore Central and Mabel-Canton advanced to the Sub-Section 1A East VB semifinals. M-C did so by going through a familiar foe, 7-seed Spring Grove (19-9). In the fourth meeting of the year between the two squads, the Coug’s prevailed 3-0, but by two points in each set (2624, 25-23, 25-23). Meanwhile, the Falcons (#5, 22-6) made a lengthy trip to Goodhue (#4, 18-6). The ride home was probably long too, but good. After dropping game one (22-25), FC ripped off three straight (25-15, 25-22, 25-18). Sophomore Taylor Case was impressive, notching 23 kills and 13 digs. …Only To Fall in Semi-Finals Fillmore Central’s reward was a semi-final contest with top-seeded, third-ranked, defending state Class A champion Wabasha-Kellogg (22-

denied match points at 17-16 and 18-17, but not 19-18. A Lake City four-hit gave the Gophers a 20-18 win and a birth in the Sub-Section 1AA East finals. Both teams relied on a number of players for production. Kenna Moechnig (16 kills, 5 blocks) and Alex Duxbury (5 aces) led Chatfield; Taylor Koller (12 kills, 4 blocks) paced the Tigers. County FB Teams Get One PlayOff Win, No More Four of the counties football teams advanced to their sectional semifinals. In 9-man, Mabel-Canton and Lanesboro both withstood scares to do so. The Cougars (#3, 5-3) trailed 6-seed Glenville-Emmons (2-6) 20-14 early in the 4th. A Gabe Lind run (plus PAT) put the Coug’s in the lead 21-20. A Jacoby Bigalk short TD run made it 27-20 with two-to-go. G-E’s last gasp got to around midfield before running out of downs. Lind had 23 carries for 100-plus. Bigalk accounted for three scores (two rush, one pass). Lanesboro faced a similar situation. The 4-seed Burros (5-3) trailed 5-seed Houston (4-4) 14-6 entering the 4th. But Niko Anderson notched two scoring runs and Braden Hanson added another, as the Burros outscored the ‘Canes 21-7 in the final stanza. They won 27-21. Anderson eclipsed 200 yards and had 3 TD’s. In 1A, (#2, 6-2) Fillmore Central began sluggishly

(led 7-0 at the half) versus (#7, 2-6) Rushford-Peterson. They responded in the 3rd quarter though, scoring 20 points in a four-minute span, led by new tailback Tanner Ristau (21-139, 3 TD’s). The Falcons ended R-P’s season at 2-7 with a 30-0 drubbing. Stat of the game; R-P’s Casey McLellan broke off a 50-yard run on the games second play. It took the Trojans another 30 plays to equal that yardage. In 1AA, Chatfield (#2, 5-3) built a 27-7 halftime lead versus (#7, 1-7) Pine Island. But a Panther score with less than three minutes to go trimmed the margin to 35-28. Justin Viss then iced the game, breaking off a 50-yard TD run on 3rd and 9 from midfield. Chatfield prevailed 42-28. Viss ended with 116 yards and 3 TD’s. Backfield mate Jake Neis tallied 257 yards and 2 TD’s. All four teams then faced massive struggles in semifinal contests. Mabel-Canton couldn’t tame (#2, 7-2) Grand Meadow (like they did in week 4). The Coug’s spotted the Larks a 14-0 1st quarter lead and couldn’t recover, losing 34-20. They end with a 6-4 record. Number six in state Spring Grove (#1, 9-0) shellacked Lanesboro 62-6. It was ugly: 41-0 at half, 62-0 after three. Lanesboro’s season concludes at 6-4. Fillmore and Chatfield each got handled too. FC turned the ball over twice on their first three possessions.

Southland (#3, 7-2) turned each into TD’s. At one point, FC had 19 yards total offense, the Rebels 14 points. Southland built a 35-0 lead on the backs of Tyler Kressin (18-126, 2 TD’s rushing) and Mike Goergen (2 TD’s). Only then did FC finally score; Andy Todd hit Ristau and Marcus Tucker for 55 and 65-yard TD passes. The final was 35-12. The Reb’s avenged a week six 7-0 loss. FC concludes the season at 7-3. The Gophers were victims of their own carelessness, plus Zumbrota-Mazeppa’s (#3, 5-4) aerial attack. Chatfield committed seven turnovers, four in the first half. A pair of Z-M QB’s combined to throw 5 TD’s. Kevin Niebuhr caught three of them (7 catches for 93 yards). The score was 27-0 at halftime and would balloon to 40-0 before the Gophers scored (Nate Skare 26-yards to Jesse Julian, Alex Haffner 9-yard run, Brandon Adler safety). The final was 40-16.

Good PeoPle


We know that sometimes life deals us a bum rap, situations can occur that we have little or no control over financially. In today’s ever-changing economic cycle, job challenges arise that may have caused financial hardships or unexpected medical emergencies may have dealt an unfair blow. As much as we try, sometimes it is very difficult to rebound from unexpected or outof-control finances without help or understanding from some outside source. We want that opportunity to help. Re-establishing credit can be as important as buying a car. We have lenders working right now to finalize loans. Let’s see how this program works: From the start, our customers are under no obligation to enter this program, they can say no at any time. This program is designed to reestablish their credit in as short a period of time as possible. Other dealerships offer “Buy Here - Pay Here” operations. Generally, you buy a vehicle they want to get rid of, and no credit is established since they do not report to the credit bureau (unless payments are not made) and there are no warranties or guarantees. If credit is established, it’s only with

Bad Credit

them so people are trapped inside their spiral of driving less than desirable vehicles and never improving their credit situation, which is the primary mission in this venture. At Zumbrota Ford, we offer all of our customers the opportunity to drive the vehicle that is right for them. We only use lenders that help re-establish your credit on 1998 and newer models, that meet the conditioning and mileage criteria of the lenders. Many of these vehicles have remaining factory warranties and are eligible for an extended service contract. After paying on this vehicle, credit will be reestablished, provided payments have been maintained current on it and all your other credit obligations. Do you have: 1. A full-time job? 2. $1,300 gross monthly income? 3. Stable residence? 4. Down payment or trade? 5. Past credit problems with a drive to re-establsh credit? If so, we would like the opportunity to help you. Call 1-800-757-3080, ask for Brent or Greg for a completely confidential interview and drive home in your next automobile or truck form Zumbrota Ford tomorrow.

Corn stalks - fertilizer bill?

the P: 200 bushels X 50 percent X .25 lbs P X $.62 per lb. = $15.50 of P. Next the K: 200 bushels X 50% X 1.05 lbs K X $.58 per lb. = $60.90 of K. This totals $76.40 per acre fertilizer being removed. A few years ago, Jeff Coulter, Extension Corn Agronomist, estimated 200 bushel per acre corn crop produces 4.22 tons of dry matter per acre as corn residue. Once again, assuming 50 percent is harvested, we would have just a little over 2 ton of stalks removed or about four bales per acre. If your cornstalk bale weighs 1,000 lbs, each bale would then contain $19.10 in fertilizer plus baling costs.

A couple of recommendations from Jeff Coulter: Residue harvest is best suited to continuous corn systems that consistently have high yields and utilize little or no tillage. If corn residue is harvested, do not remove more than 45 percent of the residue. Harvesting only 45 percent of the corn residue is tricky, but it can be done if stalks are cut high during grain harvest and if stalks are not chopped prior to baling. If a rake is used prior to baling, make sure that the rake is set as high as possible to avoid collecting too much residue. Another useful idea when harvesting residue is to rotate residue harvest among fields. This ensures

that residue is not harvested from the same field every year. In addition, think seriously about reducing tillage following residue harvest. Also target manure applications rather than fertilizer for these fields if soil test levels indicate that phosphorus is needed. Winter cover crops should also be considered for fields where residue is removed. While it is critical to maximize profitability from the land, we need to balance short-term economics with long-term sustainability. When removing residue this fall, be aware of the affect on fertility, soil organic matter, and increased erosion potential.

oversee the three divisions. The administrator would do analysis, look at trends, and would be required to have extensive technical knowledge. A shared administrator will reduce costs for taxpayers. There was some discussion as to whether Houston County would also be interested. Commissioner Duane Bakke stated that the inclusion of Houston County would lower our cost. He said he would like Houston County to say no or yes. Commissioner Chuck Amunrud maintained that we need to move forward regardless of what Houston does. Brown added that the contract portion for Fillmore County with Winona should be less than half time. Other Business In Brief •Director of Nursing Lantha Stevens reported that they applied for a $6,000 grant to do a comprehensive community health assessment to identify health issues and write policies that will be required for accredidation. The policies will include enforcement of environmental laws on things like discarded tires, mosquitoes, and other environmental public health hazards. Stevens said accreditation will get them up to standards which could improve their eligibility for future grant funding. This will be just the first step toward accreditation. Bakke suggested zoning, law enforcement and the attorney’s office should be involved in the writing of policy. The board approved a letter of support for the grant from the National Association of County and City Health Officials. •November 15, 2011, is “America Recycles Day.” LaVerne Paulson, SCORE, encourages people to take another look at their recycling. Improved recycling can help make the county a better place. He noted the garbage in the metro area could fill the Metrodome in just three or four months. Paulson added that twelve bins per week go to the Salva-

tion Army filled with clothes, curtains, rugs, and more. Bakke expressed his dismay, having seen from the height of his combine the increasing volume of cans and bottles in the road ditches. Some recycling facts and figures: in the United States more than four pounds per person per day of solid waste is generated . About a third of recyclables are recycled. Recycling saves each year “an energy equivalent of the annual energy consumption of nearly 13.3 million U.S. households.” It saves $24.4 billion in costs for crude oil. Greenhouse gas emissions are reduced equivalent to the “removal of 35 million cars from the road.” •The board directed Karen Brown to offer a one percent increase for each year in a three year contract with SELCO. The county has seven libraries and the suggested increase would be an additional $2,000 to be shared by the libraries. SELCO had requested increases of three percent for the first year, two percent for the second year and one percent for the third year. There was no increase last year. Bakke recognized that the libraries offer a valued service and that they are doing good work for the communities. •The board approved the advertisement for bids for 2012 county printing. The bids need to be in hand before 10:00 a.m. on January 3, 2012.

Proposers Jack and Greg Griffin are hoping to use the expansion in part for the mining of approximately 10-15 feet in depth of highly-prized silica sand. Often dubbed, “Frac Sand,” the round sands are used in hydraulic fracturing, a process used in the extraction of natural gas and oil from underground rock. It is a process which is transforming the domestic energy push. The Frac Sands of Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, and Illinois are considered some of the finest in North America because it’s chemically inert and can withstand intense pressure needed to break rock. The sand in southeastern Minnesota is ideal and sought for its size and strength. (1) Its value is listed as anywhere between $100 to $300 per ton. According the filed EAW, the excavation of the overburden and sand generally will not require blasting. The plan is to excavate in 20 acre phases with each phase restored to grass pasture to provide erosion control measures. Lifespan of the operation is anticipated to be 20 to 25 years depending on market supply and demand. The washed course silica sand will be used for the oil and gas services industry. The initial quarry was permitted by Olmsted County in 1996 and contained 11.55 acres. The quarry was expanded in 2005 and was updated to 19.05 acres, along with the additional area in Elmira Township. To date, an environmental review has never been completed for this project. Opponents of the proposed Frac mining site the dangerous, nearly invisible dust created by the jostled silica. This dust, per the National Environmental Health Association and Halliburton Material Safety, can cause progressive, disabling,

and sometimes-fatal lung disease called silicosis. Individuals with silicosis are predisposed to develop tuberculosis. In addition, The International Agency for Research on Cancer has determined that crystalline silica, inhaled, can cause lung cancer. There is some evidence that breathing respirable crystalline silica or the disease silicosis is associated with an increased incidence of significant disease endpoints such as scleroderma and kidney disease. Ground and surface water issues, as well as soil quality, are also key, according to opponents. A Department of Natural Resources water appropriation application is pending. Other environmental concerns include runoff and erosion control, potential damage to two state-protected species. Terry Lee, of the Department of Environmental Resources, also stresses the injury risk that the site poses during its operation and after reclamation in regards to land use regulations. This could translate to currently unknown issues concerning economic development in the area, future housing, and property values. Issues have arisen with the boom in Frac sand mining in communities and both Goodhue and Wabasha Counties have recently placed a one-year moratorium on it. The move is primarily focused on an attempt to thoroughly understand all of the issues of the operation prior to making any decisions on projects. After hearing the concerns, the board voted unanimously to delay the proposed Griffin expansion. It further ruled that Griffin and White Diamond Frac Sand must complete an indepth Environmental Impact Study. It is unclear how long the study will take to complete.

Habitat partners with homeowner families, the members of the local community, and volunteers to build simple, decent, affordable houses. The houses are sold to those in need at no profit, through no-interest loans.

To qualify for a Habitat home, families must currently live in substandard housing, be unable to obtain a conventional loan from a bank, have the resources to pay a monthly mortgage and be willing to partner with Habitat for Humanity. Before moving into a Habitat home, families must contribute 300 hours of “sweat-equity” to the building of the home and must make a modest down payment. Habitat for Humanity Winona-Fillmore Counties built its first home in Winona County in 1994. Since then, 43 homes have been built. In addition to the 25 homes within the city of Winona, Habitat has built homes in Lewiston, St. Charles, Minnesota City, Altura, Stockton and Rushford. Volunteers interested in helping with Habitat for Humanity projects or offering donations may call the Habitat for Humanity Winona-Fillmore Counties office at 507-457-0003 or visit our website at

WHERE’S THE BEEF?? That’s what I tend to hear in October every year! Fall is the month when we buy beef and stock up for the winter and spring. Personally, I could care less about meat but my hubby thinks that beef is just about the only food item worth eating!! So, every October we contact our favorite beef grower, Bill Johnson, and order a quarter of beef. That amount of beef usually gets us through the winter and spring months and sometimes even through summer before we have to start buying over the counter again. We use a lot of chicken too. Grill it in the summer and hotdishes in the winter. Hamburger is our favorite beef product of all but we usually get all the “other” pieces too. Winter is a good time for pot roast and hamburger/vegetable soup and swiss steak and all those good oven foods! Soup bones are a must for my family! If I don’t use them then my sister does. She cooks up the soup bones and then freezes the broth for use later on. I’m not a rib eater so I usually don’t get those. But the one thing I get, and I get every package there is, is LIVER!!! That is my absolute favorite meat of all!!! Yes, I know, some of you probably don’t like it—but tough! My hubby refuses to be in the house whenever I make it as the smell is just to awful for him – what a baby!!! My personal favorite way of fixing it is to sauté a ton of thinly sliced onions and a full package of thinly sliced fresh mushrooms – yum, yum!! Then, without flouring the liver pieces, I brown them with the

onions and mushrooms. Once everything is nice and brown and cooked through, I pour in a big can of tomato sauce and let things simmer for 30 to 45 minutes. Sometimes instead of simmering I put everything in a casserole dish and bake in the oven along with baked potatoes or scalloped potatoes. If I have any green peppers on hand I also slice them in with the onions and mushrooms. I can eat this every night for a week and not get sick of it!! Some people I know brown their liver with bacon. I have never tried that. Not sure if that gives the liver a porky taste or what. I have even heard of people that pour brown Karo syrup over their liver. Can’t imagine what that tastes like either! When we were kids and had liver at home (naturally there weren’t too many who would eat it then either) dad would make his “homemade” potato chips. He would start some grease (remember how our folks saved used grease in a can on the back of the stove?) heating it in a big cast iron fry pan. Then he would peel several potatoes and using the old potato peeler, peel layers of the potato into the hot grease. As the potato pieces got brown and crispy, he would remove them and put them on old newspapers to drain. He also sprinkled on some good ole salt too!!! Good thing we didn’t know about cholesterol back then! Now, I wonder what I should fix for supper tonight??? How about tuna??!!!

Crock Pot Pizza

1 ½ lb. browned hamburger with some onion 15 oz. can of any pizza sauce 30 oz. jar of Ragu or any kind of spaghetti sauce 8 oz. package of cooked Kluski noodles (available at Harmony Foods) 1 package of pepperoni 1 cup cheddar cheese 1 cup mozzarella cheese Mix the hamburger and onion with the sauces. Put ½ of the hamburger/sauce mixture in bottom of crock pot. Next, put the noodles, then pepperoni, then both cheeses and top with remaining hamburger/sauce. Cook on high for 1 ½ hours or on low for 3 hours. You could bake in oven at 350 for about an hour too.

Trade IT! We take motorcycles, snowmobiles, atv’s on trade. Get the car or truck you want. Turn yours into cash!

Journal Writing Project

A week in Costa Rica

By Katie Wolter Last summer I had the best experience in my life so far. In June, myself and nine of my classmates traveled to the beautiful country of Costa Rica. We stayed for seven days, experiencing and learning about a whole Katie Wolter new culture. Our stay was short, but we did so many amazing things and saw the most spectacular scenes. I wish I could tell everything about the trip, but that would make for a very lengthy story. However, I will tell about the most memorable experiences I had in Costa Rica. Imagine being strapped into a harness and hanging from a single cord. You are pushed out of a tree, and you zoom across a cloud forest. Zip lining is the one of the most thrilling experiences. We got to do quite a bit of zip lining in Costa Rica. Our zip line tour consisted of eight different zip lines spaced

throughout the cloud forest. The last zip line was the longest and the fastest. For a split second I closed my eyes as I was pushed off the platform. When I opened my eyes, I had emerged from the cover of the trees and was zipping across an immense valley of lush, green cloud forest. I was above the tops of the trees. I stared in amazement at the spectacular view before me. It was breathtaking. However, that was not the end of the zip line tour. There was one part left that would leave me utterly breathless, the Tarzan swing. After being detached from the cable, I walked down a small, steep hill. I came to a cable bridge 100 feet up that extended out over the valley. Slowly I walked to the end of the bridge where two men were waiting for me. They hooked a rope to the front of my harness and led me to the very end of the bridge. One man swung open a small gate and the other instructed me to put both hands on the rope and to bend my knees. “Uno, dos, tres!” My stomach was in my

Student Writing Project By Jade Wangen This year marks the 13th year that the Fillmore County Journal has been publishing articles written by local high school students for the Journal Student Writing Project.

This year’s student writers are

Mitchell Walbridge, Kiah Halvorson, and Sam Stocker from Lanesboro High School; Collin Richert and Bailey Hanson from Mabel-Canton High School; Katie Wolter from RushfordPeterson High School, and Stephanie Hendrickson and Katrina Schmidt from Fillmore Central High School. We appreciate all of the students who contribute to this project, and look forward to reading their stories throughout the school year.

mouth and I was screaming. I was falling from a 100 foot cable bridge in the middle of a cloud forest. I swung back and forth out over the valley. Finally I was lowered back down to the ground. My whole body was shaking. It was the most thrilling and exhilarating experience I have ever had. The zip line tour was only the beginning of my experiences in Costa Rica. Another memorable experience was visiting Manuel Antonio. Manuel Antonio is a beach located in the Manuel Antonio National Park. To get to the beach we had to walk half a mile through the nature preserve. On the hike I got to see my favorite animal. Numerous times our tour guide stopped us and pointed up to the trees. There, lazing around in the tree tops, were two-toed sloths. Sloths have long shaggy hair and long pointed claws. It is actually quite funny to watch the sloths move around at such a glacial pace. Along with the sloths we also saw bunches of rambunctious monkeys and a couple of raccoons. When we finally made it to the beach, it was another breathtaking sight. The sun was shining and glinting off the ocean, the sand was white and soft, and the blue waves

Jem Movie Theatre is going digital By Jade Wangen The Jem Movie Theatre in Harmony has been trying to raise funds to switch from a 35-millimeter projector to a digital one, a switch they were forced into by the movie industry. The cost of a digital projector was estimated at $75,000. So far, they have raised $7,200 in funds from people who are eager to keep the small theatre open. Owners Paul and Michelle Haugerud recently came upon a great opportunity to buy a barely-used digital projector for $55,000; quite a bit less than they thought they would have to spend. But it’s still a lot of money. They have borrowed the remainder of the cost from First Southeast Bank in Harmony, and continue to raise funds to pay the loan. “If things go as planned, the first digital movie will be shown on November 11,” said Michelle Haugerud. The Haugeruds are grateful for all the support they have received from the community in helping to keep the theatre open. The Jem Theatre has been around for a long time, providing local, inexpensive entertainment for families since 1940. With this new opportunity and the help of fundraisers, it now has a chance to stay around a lot longer. Donations can be sent to First Southeast Bank, PO Box 429, Harmony, MN 55939 to the Jem Projector Fund. All money raised will go toward the purchase of the projector.


were rolling and crashing into the shore. We wasted no time in changing into our swimming suits and heading into the surf. My classmates and I were in the water for over an hour, swimming and rolling with the waves. Quite a few times we were all caught up in a big wave that pulled us back to shore and smashed us into the sand. Even after I had gotten out of the water and left the beach, I could still feel the powerful push and pull of the waves. Along with the zip line tour and the beach, there is one more experience that was most memorable in Costa Rica. On the last day of our trip, we took a short bus ride to a local school. The school was located on a beach. It was a one room school and very different from schools here in the states. Not all the children attended school every day, but the ones that were there the day we visited were happy to be there. The classroom was bare except for a few posters and ramshackle desks. Everything they had was in poor condition. They definitely did not have com-

puters or Smart boards. Seeing how little these children had made me grateful for the school I attend and the technology I have access to. We were able to bring lots of new school supplies for the children. We also brought them a new soccer ball and a new volleyball. We handed out candy and made balloon animals for them. We spent the rest of the morning talking and playing games with them. I am sure the children enjoyed having us there, and we had a lot of fun visiting them. My trip to Costa Rica was filled with tons of new and exciting experiences. I gained insight into a whole new culture and learned about many new things that gave me new perspectives on my life and the world around me. My classmates and I had the time of our lives. Every time I think of Costa Rica, I wish I was still there. Hopefully, someday I will be back there once again. Katie Wolter is a student at Rushford-Peterson High School. She is one of 8 area students participating in the Journal Writing Project, now in its thirteen year.
