Local fire departments battle March 1 house fire By A ngie Rodenburg angie@fillmorecountyjournal.com

It’s not often that the Rushford Fire Department gets a call for a house fire, and that’s the way they like it. Unfortunately, the Rushford Fire Department received such a phone call at 12:52 a.m. on Saturday, March 1 from the residence of Royal and Stephanie Anderson. Stephanie Anderson called 911 after receiving a phone call from her husband Royal as she was just getting to Rushford after a night out with friends. As she drove up to her house she could see the smoke. “When you’re watching your

house on fire, it seems like it takes forever for the fire department to get there,” said Stephanie. In reality the fire department was able to respond in six minutes. Royal had been home and was sleeping when their dog Nollie came in the bedroom seeming to need to be let out. When Royal went to let out Nollie, he saw that the back porch was filled with smoke. “She’s a real hero,” said Stephanie about their quick acting dog. Royal was able to get out of the house safely. However, the Andersons were concerned when they couldn’t find Royal’s brother, Riley, who had been

staying with them. They were relieved to soon find that he had not been home. With everyone safely out of the home, Nollie included, the firefighters were able to get right to work putting out the fire. Not long into fighting the fire the Houston Fire Department was called in to assist. The old house was built with a balloon style construction that allowed the flames to easily move from one part of the house to another. They not only had to fight the fire in the rooms, but in between the ceiling and the floors. Houses today are not built this way in See HOUSE FIRE Page 12 

Having received detailed road management and improvement recommendations and plans, the Village moved forward the discussion of a potential $1 million bonding on an improvement option. At a Tuesday, February 24 special meeting, the council debated the merits of paving various roads and what impacts the upgrades could have financially for the city, both immediately and in future maintenance. Original consideration to get all needed street work done, which includes resurfacing and paving of heavily traveled roads, amounted to $3.25 million, but the council quickly dismissed a plan of that magnitude. Last August, the council instead selected 14 potential street areas which included portions or all of Cooperative Way, Whitemore, Prospect, West Goodrich, Plummer, East Goodrich, Meadow, Aspen, Village Drive, Money Creek, Nordic

Road, Ridgeview, and Highway 43 to Laura Lane. At that time, the council considered bonding not to exceed $550,000, but dismissed the idea later in the year in favor of in-depth engineering analysis to be done on County Line Road and waiting for a thorough road study to be completed on all areas. Recommendation to the city from financial consultant Mike Bubany, suggested the city seek the maximum bonding this year for selected road projects. Project scope can be reduced, but bonding cannot be increased once roads are selected and brought forth at public hearing. The city was presented with a third option at the Tuesday, March 4 meeting, which would put County Line Road back in the mix, increasing the bonding an additional $299,000. “We hashed it out then, now we’re hashing it out again,” cautioned Councilor Dennis Overland. “We jumped in kind of quick and See VILLAGE Page 13 

C ommentary Asset-based community development By Tim Penny, SMIF President/CEO Too often communities focus on what they don’t have. And it is true that many community leaders struggle due to insufficient funding, limited resources, and inadequate infrastructure. But it is also true that if communities were to dwell only on these deficits, it’s likely nothing would ever get done. This is why Southern Minnesota Initiative Foundation (SMIF) developed a program we call the Community Growth Initiative (CGI). Our CGI process helps a city, a cluster of smaller cities, or a county to focus on what they do have-their assets. The CGI involves an Asset-Based Community Development model to identify a community’s strengths and resources. These assets include individual talent, businesses, local schools, nonprofit agencies, fraternal and civic associations, financial institutions, physical, and more. Our goal is to facilitate a planning process, allowing each community to identify what makes it unique and then collectively strategize about how

to build on their indigenous assets in order to enhance community vitality. Currently, 51 communities in our 20-county region have gone through the CGI process with projects primarily focused on early childhood education or entrepreneurial activity. This means, they have mapped their community’s assets, identified a leadership team, sought public opinion for projects, which then leads to a $20,000 grant from SMIF to implement their highest-ranking project ideas. We are excited about the many impactful projects that have resulted from our CGI work in area communities. For example, in 2008 the city of Lanesboro went through the CGI process with SMIF and identified tourism and local foods resources as community assets. This led to the development of a community-supported online marketplace for local goods, which eventually became a downtown store front. This past year, Lanesboro Local was sold and is now a for-profit business, offering

locally grown and produced food, handmade crafts, and local art. Red Wing’s CGI focused on its entrepreneurs. Community leaders continue to expand upon the initial CGI grant that supported a phone app to link visitors with the community and a new nonprofit promoting the Red Wing bluffs. Their work has now grown into numerous other projects. Red Wing is now a member of the US Ignite Partnership, which pilots ultra-high-speed broadband projects throughout the U.S. to spur entrepreneurship and innovation. As part of the designation, community leaders opened a business incubator-Red Wing Ignite. The project received an additional $20,000 Incentive Grant from SMIF to help with the costs of the incubator, aimed at attracting early stage technology businesses to the community. In Fairmont, SMIF’s facilitation assisted in creating an Early Childhood Initiative (ECI). Established in 2003, the Fairmont ECI continues to be a very active group. They have joined forces with other

youth organizations in the Fairmont area to create their own nonprofit, Youth First, to continue to raise funds and write grants. The Fairmont ECI saw a need to reach families with children ages 3-5 that might otherwise be overlooked. They created a home visitor position to support those families and have continued to fund it for several years, in part through SMIF’s home visiting grant program. The Fairmont team is also actively working on Pre K-Grade 3 alignment effort with in their public and parochial schools. The Fairmont ECI recently created a Kindergarten summer camp for children entering Kindergarten with little or no preschool experience and received an additional Incentive Grant from SMIF to help fund the program. Last year the camp reached just over 100 children, better preparing them for school and life. These communities were able to take on local issues once they focused on the assets they already had. It is our experience that the leaders and citizens who take part in the CGI and ECI process continue to come together to tackle concerns that arise locally. Every community

in our region has a unique set of challenges and assets-through our CGI and ECI programs, our aim is to empower citizens to discover and address both. Contact us to find out what SMIF can help you do for your community. As always, I welcome your questions and comments. You can reach me at 507-455-3215 or timp@ smifoundation.org. Health care... To the Editor, I read Mrs. Nyenhuis’ letter about health care and some red flags were very apparent to me. I found it hypocritical of her to talk about how well her knee is doing and how lucky she is to have her husband after his diabetic trauma and then go trash the very system that has them so healthy. I’m glad your mom never gave you aspirin for a fever; it wouldn’t help a fever anyway. Evil profits help fund the very research and development you said yourself was so needed now. Pharmaceutical companies have huge payrolls and getting a new drug approved costs millions if not billions, evil profits are needed to finance development of the pain meds and anticoagulants you are probably took when your knee was replaced. Cherry picking examples of someone who cured themselves with diet and then using them as broad recommendations is not something you should be doing, you could convince someone into an early grave if you don’t know the big picture. The president had to lie to get the ACA passed (if you like your plan you can keep your plan). The rollout was botched in every conceivable way and they don’t care. Why would anyone trust these arrogant community organizers with a single payer plan? Dan Terbeest Spring Valley, MN

C ommentary A reality check By Stan Gudmundson It is important to periodically reexamine humanity’s hideous past to remind us of how extremely dangerous our world is. We cannot afford to take our country, liberty, and our way of life for granted. The slaughter of the last 125 years or so can be divided into three, Col. Stan often interre- Gudmundson lated, categories. The first is war. Millions and millions have lost their lives for, in most cases, literally nothing. The second is government’s murder of its own people in pursuit of utopian fantasies. Socialists, i.e. Fascists and Communists, for example have killed far more than 100 million of their own citizens in Germany, Russia, China, Cuba, Cambodia, and North Korea to name a few. Worse, in places like China, Cuba and North Korea it still goes on. The century’s death toll as a result of government’s killing their own people is far greater than that of its wars. The third category is that of ethnic cleansing, the focus of this editorial. The phrase “ethnic cleansing” is relatively new. Unfortunately the process isn’t. The stereotypic view of the Jew-

ish holocaust places virtually all of the blame on Germans. That view is incorrect. An observer in Romania in 1940-41 noted that the, “average Rumanian hated Jews with fury unapproached in Germany and equaled only in Poland”. There were anti-Jewish pogroms that killed hundreds of thousands and forced millions to flee in Croatia, Romania, Ukraine, Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, Greece, Serbia, and the Soviet Union before, during, and after WWII. German observers were stunned by the viciousness of Croatians. Most its 700,000 Jews died in Croatia. Consequently, eastern and central Europe was virtually emptied of Jews. “Never Again” became the rallying cry. Unfortunately the reality is more like “Again and Again”. Early in the 20th century thousands of Bulgarians were killed and hundreds of thousands were banished by Romanians and Greeks. During the late teens and early 20s more than two million Greeks were thrown out of places they lived, often for centuries, by Bulgarians and Turks. Some Greeks forced to flee Turkey didn’t even speak Greek. Five hundred thousand were also forced forever into Turkey’s interior. Turks kidnapped many of the Greek women. Beginning in 1915, 1-1.5 million Armenians were the victims of a Turkish genocide. Earlier, in the 1890s, Turks killed tens of thousands. In the late 1990s a quarter of million Armenians became refugees

at the hands of Azerbaijanis. Kurds and Tatars also purged Armenians. In 1932-33 Ukraine suffered a terror famine under Stalin’s direction. Upwards of 7.5 million died. During the ‘40s at least 1.6 million Ukrainians were displaced or killed by Romanians, Poles, and Germans. Turks suffered at the hands of Greece, Bulgaria, and Serbia. Hundreds of thousands were forced out of these countries. In the early ‘20s at least a million left lands conquered by Greece. Hungarians, 350-425,000 of them, were banished by Ukraine and 200,000 fled in 1956, 200300,000 Italians were driven out of Yugoslavia, and over a million Serbs fled at the hands of Kosovars, Croatia, Albania, and Bulgaria. During WWII the Soviet Union removed from the Caucasus region and Crimea, entire Chechen, Balkar, Ingush, and Tatar populations. According to the Soviet NKVD, 144,000 Chechens were eliminated. Upwards of 2.5 million Poles were slaughtered or moved by Ukraine, Germany, and the Soviet Union. At least 500,000 were sent east to work and die in Soviet labor camps. And the nationality subject to the largest population purge in European history? Germans. After the WWII, 12-14 million Germans were purged from Czechoslovakia, Poland, Yugoslavia, Romania, Austria, and the Soviet Union. Precise death tolls as a result of “ethnic cleansing” are impossible

Looking back: The unique perspective of time

to tally. Movements of huge populations always caused enormous numbers of deaths. The agony and suffering caused by starvation, rape, pillage, and whole varieties of other inhuman treatment is beyond description. Virtually every German woman in the area occupied by Soviet troops was raped. In the 1980s and ‘90s there were hundreds of thousands of Georgians, Bosnians, Serbs, Croatians, Chechens, Azerbaijanis, Armenians, and others killed or forced out of the countries they had been living in. The hatreds are still there. Human nature has not changed. Having an unpopular religious, ideological, ethnic, or racial heritage was and still is enough to get one killed or purged. During the Ottoman Empire 20 percent of its population was Christian. Today Christians make up about 2 percent of the population in those same areas. Having the legal status of second class citizens their homes and businesses are being destroyed and they are being murdered. Ancient Christian communities are being obliterated. 450,000 have fled Syria and more than 850,000 have left Iraq. Copts in Egypt are being slaughtered. There are huge faultlines throughout the world that will assuredly continue to produce the horrors of war, slaughters within countries, and ethnic cleansing. A small sample includes Muslim v. Christian in the Middle East but especially in Europe as a declining European

population faces a growing Muslim population, Shia v. Sunni, nationalistic China v. its neighbors and the US, and competing hatreds in the Caucasus. Hatred is worldwide and it is deep and long-lasting. Americans really can’t comprehend hatred of this kind. Those who think they see racial prejudice and hatred everywhere here in the US don’t have a clue. Years ago I began to try to understand the scale of and the reasons for the death toll of the 20th century and the potential for the same kinds of events for the future. I just finished another related book “The Tragedy of Liberation” by Frank Dikotter, an account of Chinese Revolution between 1945-1957. Mao was incredibly depraved and by normal standards of behavior, literally insane. I don’t see how anyone can draw any other conclusion. I wondered if this hatred and evil was just part of human nature or was there more to it? Even without my Christian faith I would find it very difficult to believe humanity is intrinsically that terrible. The toll is just too great. There is more to this wickedness than just human nature. This overview is far from allencompassing but it should help illustrate why it is absolutely essential that the United States maintain the strongest military on earth. We can’t let our guard down. The world is just too dangerous. This is imperative for not only the survival of the United States but for the survival for the rest of world as well.

in a complete meltdown, thanks to the ineptitude by Obama and Hillary.” If Mr. Erding had even a cursory knowledge of Middle East history, he would know that his so-called “meltdown” and “ineptitude” started long before Obama. How about the massive failure under the Reagan Administration to adequately protect our marine barracks in Lebanon resulting in the suicide bombing and murder of over 200 of our soldiers? How about Bush’s failure to capture Osama Bin Laden in Afghanistan when he had the opportunity? The truth is no American president, Republican or Democrat, since at least the 1960’s, and even before, has had an answer for the extremely complex problems that exist in that part of the world. Here’s another of Mr. Erding’s “whoppers.” He states Obama is “using the IRS to silence and

crush any opposition.” Really? What a dangerous and irresponsible statement! Where is your solid, irrefutable proof of that, Mr. Erding? Such wild accusations are inexcusable. Finally, Mr. Erding claims that those on the far left are “typically” guilty of “abusive, insensitive language and name-calling.” I wonder if Mr. Erding has listened to any of the numerous right wing talk shows over the last couple of years. It would be difficult for anyone on the left to top most of those talk show hosts in their use of these same tactics. Let’s hope that any future FCJ opinions submitted by Mr. Erding are more measured, cautious, and deliberative.

By Herb Panko Chatfield, Minn. Jeff Erding’s article in the Fillmore County Journal, February 24, 2014, issue, shows an astounding compilation of wild assertions, exaggerations, unsupportable opinions, and Herb Panko outright false statements. Let’s start with his first “whopper.” Mr. Erding wonders, “Was our system of health care (before Obamacare) all that bad?” Yes, Mr. Erding, unless you have been living under a rock over the past several decades, it was that bad.

There was nearly universal agreement among conservatives and liberals alike that the previous system was badly in need of fixing. There were too many problems with the old system to delineate here, but let’s just point out two of the worst ones. Under the old healthcare system, insurance companies could deny coverage for nearly any preexisting condition. There were also lifetime limits. If you had extensive cancer surgery and you had exceeded your lifetime limit of, say, $200,000 by $300,000, you were on the hook for 300 grand. Obamacare eliminates both of these stipulations. It also puts a cap on the amount insurance companies can take out of your premium and pay their

stockholders and overhead costs. It was commonly 60-70 percent or more. Obamacare limits that to 20 percent. The rest has to actually go to healthcare. Although still not perfect, Obamacare is a great improvement on what used to exist. Mr. Erding goes on to say, “Our closest allies have abandoned us and world opinion of the USA is at an all-time low.” This is nothing short of a gross exaggeration. Germany, the UK, France, Italy, and most of our European allies have “abandoned” us? Disagreements, yes, but abandonment? Hardly! Of course, Mr. Erding provides no proof of that even if he could. Next Mr. Erding says the “situation in the Middle East is now

C ommentary One Moment, Please... Gambling with Minimum Wage By Jason Sethre Publisher Fillmore County Journal Cell: 507-251-5297 jason@fillmorecountyjournal.com There’s a lot of talk about increasing the minimum wage, both at state and federal levels.

lems with this entire concept. Privilege or Entitlement? Employment is a privilege, not an entitlement. Nobody is holding a gun to anyone’s head and making them work wherever they are currently employed. Minnesota is an at-will employment state, which means that employees can quit their job without notice and employers can terminate employment without notice for any reason or no reason at all. So, to me, if you are gainfully employed, you should appreciate what you have. If you are employed at a company where you feel you are not appreciated or underpaid, then get up off your butt and start looking for another job. The most employable candidates for jobs are usually the ones who are already employed with another company. But, as I talk about privilege versus entitlement, I also feel that it is mutually beneficial for companies to hire and retain the best people in the marketplace. When you have great talent, you need to pay them as much as you can afford to pay them within the financial means of the company’s sustainability. I also believe that someone who has a great attitude, outstanding skill sets, and demonstrates that they are a team player deserves an above average increase in wages on a regular basis. Meanwhile, someone who has a negative attitude or lacks talent or doesn’t play well with others in the workplace deserves no increase in pay. Companies, and especially small businesses, can’t afford to keep people on their teams who don’t perform at an acceptable level. In sports, it’s been said many times that we are only as good as our weakest link. For companies, the same analogy applies when it relates to employees. Furthermore, I believe that jobs that don’t pay as much as we feel our talents are worth should encourage us to better ourselves elsewhere. I had a lot of jobs in my early years that were humbling experiences, and they paid minimum wage. I recall earning $3.25 per hour doing jobs I knew I didn’t want to do for the rest of my life. Those jobs became motivation. So, basically, if you don’t like how much money you are making, then seek to change your circumstances. It’s all on you. Artificial Inflation If everyone making $7.25 per hour gets a $2.85 per hour raise to increase their wage to $10.10 per hour, then shouldn’t everyone else who makes more than them also get a comparable wage increase? For example, if someone has been with a company for five years and they started out making $8 per hour, working their way up to $11 per hour, isn’t it a slap in the face to the long-time employee if a new employee starts out making $10.10

per hour? Basically, with a 139 percent increase in the federal minimum wage, we have just devalued every other employee’s earnings who makes more than minimum wage. They deserve more money, too, but where is this money going to come from? The consumers? The government? The taxpayers? And, with that dramatic $2.85 per hour increase in minimum wage, all businesses will adjust accordingly. Grocery stores, gas stations and any other business that has to pay more to their employees will not also automatically see a corresponding increase in their revenues. If anything, we will see an increase in the cost of all consumables, so this dramatic minimum wage increase will impact the Middle Class when they pay for goods at the cash register. Businesses, and especially small businesses, will adjust to make their business competitive yet sustainable. And, the ability to be competitive with price-sensitive consumers is a real issue. Just because the federal minimum wage is increased, doesn’t mean that businesses starting making more money. Instead, they have to find a way to cover that additional payroll freight. What I think our current administration fails to understand is that this will drive artificial inflation at the cost of small businesses and the Middle Class. If higher paid employees want more money in conjunction with this $2.85 per hour minimum

wage increase, that’s fine. But, that means there will have to be jobs cut in their company, and existing employees will have to take on more of the workload. Most business owners will tell you that their greatest expense is payroll, so messing with payroll will have a tremendous impact on the big picture of any small business. The other element of this conversation that I think gets overlooked on a regular basis relates to the owners of these small businesses. There are roughly 1,100 businesses in Fillmore County, and all of those business owners are beholden to taking care of everyone else before themselves and their families. They take their income and cover the cost of payroll, inventory, facilities, utilities, equipment, insurance, taxes and whatever else comes along. And, then, after everyone else is paid, whatever is left over is what they receive. In most cases, the majority of these small business owners are not overseeing any sort of get-rich-quick scheme. They work hard, endure struggles, and hope it will all pay off some day. And, with that said, think of how many empty store fronts we have in each city in Fillmore County. So, obviously, running a business isn’t easy. From my conversations with many local business owners, increasing the minimum wage at the proposed levels will result in job cuts. If you get a chance, ask any local business owner who employs more than five full-time workers how increas-

ing the federal minimum wage by $2.85 per hour will impact their business. I think it is always best to hear it straight from the horses mouth. A “Just Because” Compromise While I don’t believe that people deserve a pay increase “just because,” I do believe there needs to be a minimum wage standard. Maybe we need to have our minimum wage increased at the average rate of inflation every year, and set it like clockwork so we can move on from this debate to solve other challenges like our national debt. If the federal minimum wage increased by a small but manageable rate each year, then maybe businesses could budget for that increase. But, I have to say I am torn by this idea, as well, because I don’t believe that people deserve a pay increase “just because.” That socialistic, union-driven mentality of everyone-gets-an-increase is what encourages mediocrity and complacency in our nation’s workers. Or, maybe, just maybe, our nation is giving up on the idea of encouraging employees of companies to earn an increase in their wage by coming to work with a great attitude, being a team player, and continuously finding ways to help their company succeed -- for everyone’s sustainability and prosperity. If we are going to raise minimum wage to $10.10 per hour, then why don’t we just raise minimum wage to $20 per hour so everyone is happy (insert sarcasm here)?

Notice of fiLLMoRe coUNtY DeLiNQUeNt tAXeS

In District Court

County of Fillmore Third Judicial District Court File 23-CV-14-74 TO: ALL PERSONS WITH A LEGAL INTEREST IN THE PARCELS OF REAL PROPERTY DESCRIBED IN THE FOLLOWING DELINQUENT TAX LIST A list of real property in Fillmore County on which delinquent property taxes and penalties are due has been filed with the Court Administrator of Fillmore County. This list is published to inform all persons that the listed property is subject to forfeiture because of delinquent taxes. The property owner, taxpayer, or other interested person must either pay the tax and penalty, plus interest and costs, or file a written objection with the Fillmore County Court Administrator. The objection must be filed by April 28, 2014 stating the reason why the tax or penalty is not due on the property. If no objection is filed, a court judgment will be entered against the property for the unpaid tax, penalty, interest, and costs. For property under court judgment, the period of redemption begins on May 12, 2014, and ends three to five years later, depending on the type of property and where it is located. The period of redemption means the time within which taxes must be paid to avoid losing the property through forfeiture. To avoid forfeiture, taxes on property located within a township must be paid by May 12, 2019. Taxes must also be paid by May 12, 2019, if the property is one of the following types in a city: (1) residential homestead, (2) farm homestead, (3) private cabins, (4) resorts occupied by the owner, and (5) resorts in operation for not more than 225 days a year. Payment of tax by May 12, 2017, is necessary to avoid forfeiture of any property in a city which is not described in the preceding sentence. To determine how much interest and costs must be added to pay the tax in full, contact the Fillmore County Auditor/Treasurer’s Office, Fillmore County Courthouse, Preston, MN. 55965. The telephone number is: (507)765-3811. JAMES D.

order to help seal off fires from other areas of the house. The fire department not only had to contend with the balloon style construction, they also had the difficult task of putting a fire out in winter. Fire Department Chief Paul Corcoran said that the snow piles were deep and it was extremely icy. The firefighters kept the

trucks running and the water circulating to ensure that the hoses wouldn’t freeze. Chief Corcoran was pleased that it was only zero degrees out while fighting the fire rather than -22 like it had been in days prior. The temperature did still manage to make work more difficult for the firemen. The fire department gear was frozen stiff from the mix of cold and water. Their pant legs became more like tubes as they froze into place and ice formed on their helmets. Firefighters took turns going in the truck to warm up. It took 30,000 gallons of water, 11 hours, and 23 firefighters to put out the house fire at the Anderson’s. This coming August would have marked three years of the Anderson’s living in this home. They plan to rebuild on the same lot. “This has been our home together,” said Stephanie.

“We want to thank everyone for all their help,” said Stephanie. “It’s unreal how many people come to help in a small town like this.” The fire was ruled to be an accident caused by an old gas heater on the back porch. Chief Corcoran encourages homeowners to be careful when using an alternate source of heat. Many people have been utilizing space heaters with the cost of propane skyrocketing this winter, so it’s especially important to be mindful. Make sure no kids or animals could knock over a space heater. Old space heaters do not have the safety features that many of the new ones have. Chief Corcoran also encourages homeowners to make sure their detectors are working and that chimneys are kept clean. For those living in older homes, take extra caution as wiring deteriorates.

found out it wasn’t the best idea. Now, to go back, we’re just going in a complete circle.” County Line Road has several safety issues, namely a narrow section of roadway with a substandard culvert that is likely in need of guardrails. Councilor Gordon Johnson suggested that if the city pursued improvements on the road, that 150 feet on either side of the culvert remain crushed rock until the issues can be addressed completely. “It will reduce the speed and ensure that the road will get fixed to a standard.” The road is also subject to

extreme dust more maintenance that any other road in the Village, which was what kicked off much of the discussion on paving it. Continued sealcoating on the road, if paved, would cost $37,000 every three years, on top of the initial $299,000. “With pure hard numbers, it’s my standpoint right now, that it’s cheaper to maintain it than to pave at this point,” noted Mayor Dale Schwanke. “It would be a beautiful road and would address the dust issue, but it’s an extra $100 per $100,000 in taxes, and that’s just for this year. What will impact us now, what will impact us later, and can our constituents muster that up? The reality is, I don’t know if we can afford it.” www.traditionspreston.com 1-507-765-3837 E.O.E

the city to the tune of $18,000. Harters Quick Clean Up service ran the numbers and presented the city with a breakdown. It was revealed that the company lost funds in serving the city under the last contract. Discussion over how to effectively save the city money was inclusive of ideas such as having the Village pick up and collect at the Village Hall and altering recyclable pickup, including alternating pick up every other week. “Your route is unique,” noted Gary Harter. “It isn’t loading time, it’s the drive time. The savings wouldn’t be substantial. I have no firm answer off the top of my head.” It was acknowledged by Harters that if rural residences were picked up by the city and collected at the Village Hall there could be a true savings. “When you start talking about an $18,000 increase, you have to ask, are we going to save enough to justify our time,” noted Johnson. “It’s a discussion we need to have. I understand you can’t do business if you’re losing money and we can’t expect you to do it for less.” “When you do it the way we do it, it’s the cheapest; unless you’re eliminating stops or eliminating services,” added Harter. Both the council and Harters were agreeable to accepting the current contract, with increases, while leaving an opportunity for

“I’d like to put Option 3 out there and let the people tell us what they’d like us to do,” suggested Johnson. “We’re not used to spending that kind of money. But, we made a decision at the last meeting to go with Option 2. It’s what was doable and that’s valid.” The city will proceed with Option 2, potentially seeking $1 million in bonding for selected roads. A public hearing on the road improvements has been scheduled for Tuesday, April 1, during the regular council meeting. “I’d like to have the room packed,” added Shwanke. “I’d like to have input from the people paying the bill. Continuing discussion on costs, the council sought clarification on an upcoming water rate increase. The rate is set to go up 50 cents following April 1 meter reading, as the city attempts to continue to control costs. It’s been suggested by consultant Bubany that the city may need a 10 percent hike to recapture costs, but it’s unclear at present whether or not figures used in the financial formula are current and include the construction rate. Should the number be accurate and costs still rising beyond generated revenue, the city will need to consider another raise in the rate, beyond what is scheduled. Rates for refuse and recycling collection is also increasing for

contract modification if savings can be found for the city. “I’m open-minded and willing to talk,” added Harter. “But, we’re not going to go back down to making no money. If we’re talking about talking about some savings for both of us, I’m all in favor of that. It’s really to my advantage.” In other news, Mayor Schwanke and Councilor Hamilton Peterson reported an amicable meeting with Peterson mayor and council representative regarding the detachment/annexation issue facing the two cities, per the last council recommendation on the matter. “There was some give, some take. They’ll be taking some things to their next city council meeting and their attorneys more than likely,” said Schwanke. “Our whole goal here is to find a local resolution.” “If they turn a deaf ear, they’re forcing us to play our hand,” stressed Johnson. “We can do nothing or let a law judge decide.” “We can agree to disagree,” added Schwanke. “It doesn’t have to ruin our relationship. It’s a reasonable discussion if we can accomplish something.” The next regularly scheduled council meeting is Tuesday, March 25, at 7 p.m., at the Village Hall. Please note the change from the third Tuesday to the fourth for this meeting. The public is encouraged to attend.

Fillmore County Sports Gophers win state wrestling title

athlete of the week

By Paul Trende The 2013-2014 school year won’t be forgotten for a long while for Chatfield Gopher sports fans, parents, students, and athletes alike. Three-plus months after a state football title, a team wrestling championship! Chatfield’s place atop the Class A field is undisputed. They went through highly ranked foes #7 Pierz, #2 Frazee, and Paul Trende #1 AtwaterCosmos-Grove City as easily as one could’ve ever expected. They trailed on the scoreboard twice (3-0 both times), they won all three duals by double digits; a tremendous exhibition of mat dominance. It started with a morning quarterfinal versus #7 Pierz (25-1, only loss to A-C-GC). At 106, per an injury to regular Treyc Van Sickle, the Gophers went with alternate Maleek Hussein against 6th-ranked Brandon Ortman. Hussein lost by decision (10-4). It was a harbinger of things to come. Chatfield won even when they lost. The unexpected narrow defeat, combined with a Jared Goldsmith (#4) win at 113, and then a huge Ty Van Sickle (#10) first period pin of Brandon Sullivan (#7) at 120, grabbed Chatfield momentum (up 12-3). After a decision loss at 126 (to another ranked wrestler), Ryan Meeker (10-2 MD), #1 Hank Friederichs (7-1 D), #5 A.J. Riley (5-3 OT D), and #3 Harvey Friederichs (4-0 D) ripped off four straight Gopher victories. Riley’s was huge. He trailed 3-2 real late in the third period (0:02), only to get awarded a stalling point. Riley then got a takedown with 2-seconds left in OT

for the win over 6th-ranked Kolten Eischens. After 152, Chatfield led 25-6. The Gophers dropped the next three weights, two to decision, one to pin. Heading to 195, the Pioneers had closed the gap to 25-18. But #5 Cody Bly (195) is one late Gopher stopper. His 7-1 decision win meant either Jacob Bleess (220) or Logan Karver (285) had to (at worst) lose by decision. Both won by fall. Bleess sealed the team win with a first period stick. Karver’s first period pin, over 4thranked Curtis Brisk, was just a big exclamation point. The final of the dual was 40-18. Next up was Frazee (#2, 20-1) in the afternoon session. Hussein got it rolling with a 14-3 major at 106. Goldsmith (#4) then pinned 3rdranked Tanner Reetz, a huge win. The Hornets took 120; Van Sickle (#10), after leading 6-0, fell 7-6 to 9th-ranked Byron Byer. Frazee also took 126; 10th-ranked Grant Jepson led Jake Mandt 9-0 after one period only to hold on 15-12. Chatfield got through three ranked opponents and to the meat of their order with a 10-6 lead. Meeker (132; 12-4 MD), Hank F. (5-3 D over 8th-ranked Austin Skillings), Riley (5-0 D), and Harvey F. (pin) then ripped off four straight victories to put Chatfield up 26-6. Alex Haffner (170; 7-5 D), Bly (195; 6-0 D), and Bleess (220; pin) got wins the rest of the way, more than enough to give the Gophers the 38-19 win. It put Chatfield in the evening finals versus #1 Atwater-CosmosGrove City (ACGC). The Falcons entered with a 25-1 record (including a 52-9 win over Gopher section adversary Zumbrota-Mazeppa). None of that mattered to the maroon and white. They ‘thunderstruck’ ACGC. Hussein got another

lose-but-win at 106 (fell 3-2 to 9thranked Rylan Molinaro). The next five weights, Goldsmith (113; pin), Van Sickle (120; pin), Mandt (126; 10-2 MD), Meeker (132; 4-1 D), and Hank F. (138; 11-3 MD over #9 Derek Dengerud) all went the way of the Gophers. The pins were huge, as was Meeker’s decision over 5th-ranked Tyler Berghuis. After a loss at 145, Chatfield was halfway home up 23-9. Riley fell 4-0 to topranked Logan Peterson at 152, but Harvey F. (160) and Haffner (170) each moved up a weight and got decision wins. Haffner’s 9-2 victory ended his stellar wrestling career. A two-time individual state qualifier (though not in 2013-2014), the senior sacrificed for the team this year, wrestling heavier weights. His win put Chatfield up 29-12 with four weights to go. At 195, Cody Bly’s bout with Cody Berghuis was tied 2-2 late in regulation. There, Bly kept Berghuis from escaping, saving the match. In OT, Bly racked up a takedown that sealed the state deal for Chatfield. A Bleess pin at heavyweight was just icing on the cake. By a final of 38-22, the Gophers downed ACGC to grab their first ever state wrestling title. Goldsmith, Meeker and Hank Friederichs made the All-Tournament team (all went 3-0). Joel Viss was voted Class A Coach of the Year. He and Travis Bartels were Section 1A Coach and Assistant Coach of the Year also. The Gophers finish at 27-1. Meeker, Hank F., Haffner, Riley, Bly, Karver, Ian Morrison, and Ethan Wright are double state champions (football, wrestling).

A Week of Athletes

The week of Monday February 24th, there was really no singular Athlete of the Week, just a week of (awesome) athletes. Two wrestlers were crowned state champions. FCLMC senior Niko Anderson lived up to the #1 ranking he held most of the year. Anderson (37-1) won 13-5 in the round of 32. He beat ACGC’s 3rd-ranked Maverick Whitcomb (46-4) 3-1 in the quarterfinals. River Valley’s 6th-ranked Tim Krueger (37-5) fell next in the semis (7-3). In the finals, Anderson trailed USC’s 2nd-ranked Colten Carlson (38-4) 3-2 late in the third period before getting a takedown for the 4-3 win. Anderson adds state champion to his state runner-up (2012-2013) and all-time touchdown leader prep resume. Chatfield’s #1 ranked junior Hank Friederichs’ (45-2) 2013-2014 prep resume also looks mighty good; state football champ, state team wrestling champ, state individual champ. He won the 138-pound title, not surrendering a point along the way. He won 6-0 over Crookston’s’ 7thranked Nate Merten (37-9), by injury default over Adrian Area’s 4th-ranked Tony Lynn (36-6), and 3-0 in the semis over Medford’s 3rd-ranked Tyler Keller(31-7). In the finals, he got a first period takedown versus Minneota/Lincolin HI’s 6th-ranked Bryce Brunner (39-8). In the third, Brunner started on top and it took a neck-stretching contortionist routine for Friederichs to avoid back points. He then got a

reversal for the 4-0 win and the state title. All that came after beating two top ten opponents in Chatfield’s team duals. He thus beat six of the top ten guys in state in a three day period! Two girls recently went over 1,000 career points. RushfordPeterson’s 5’6” senior G Kendra Crawford did so in a season-finale loss to Chatfield. The four-year Trojan starter has been excellent in Terry Pelzl’s pressing, open-court attack. Her performance against Lanesboro in the first round of the play-offs, 24 points, 8 assists, 8 steals, is on par with what the versatile guard can do night-in and night-out. She’s averaging 16-plus points, nearly 4 rebounds, 5-plus assists, and 5-plus steals per game. The points, assists, and steals all

rank near the top of the 3-Rivers Conference. Crawford’s Trojans’ are having a banner year at 21-4. In Mabel, Lydia Geving also recently went over 1,000 career points. Geving is also an extra-versatile 5’8” senior guard, a four-year starter. She is averaging 14.6 points, 6.8 rebounds, 3.0 assists, and 3.5 steals per game. Her Cougars (15-9) are as good as an M-C girls team has been since 2006-2007, a welcome sight for Geving. She played on team’s freshman and sophomore year with a combined 14 wins. Poetically, M-C and R-P will play each other in a 1A East semifinal. As if those four weren’t enough, Gophers (#4) Jared Goldsmith and (#3) Harvey Friederichs each were state runner-ups.

Over the three day individual and team competitions, the duo each went 6-1. GMLOK’s lone representative (#8) Wyatt Richardson finished 3rd at 195. He won 7-4 and 2-1 before falling in the semis 9-1 to eventual state champ #1 Nathan Rose. Richardson then impressively authored a pair of pins. The junior finishes the year at 29-5. Gopher senior A.J. Riley also placed, taking 5th at 145. He intermixed four wins around a 5-4 loss in the quarters (to 6th-ranked Kolten Eischens of Pierz, who Riley beat in Chatfield’s team dual) and a 5-0 defeat in the consolation semis (to Sibley East’s 2nd-ranked Hunter Retslaff).

A Non-Shocker: Trojans 1A East Champs

One can’t technically say SubSection titles don’t mean anything to the third-ranked R-P boys’ basketball team (28-1). But, with a 50-3 record in sub-section play since 1997, said titles are just a step to much bigger things. R-P’s 20132014 staircase back to what they hope is the Promised Land (state) went through Lanesboro and Spring Grove. Against the Burros (4-seed, 17-9) in the semis, things couldn’t have started too much better for Lanesboro. About six minutes in, they led 16-10. Then a switch was flipped. R-P finished the half on a ridiculous 44 to 9 run. Tom Vix’s boys led 54-25 at halftime and prevailed 79-53. Cole Kingsley (16 pts, 5 rebs, 7 assists, 4 stls), Alex Vix (14 pts), Austin O’Hare (13 pts, 3-4 three’s), and bench wild card Noah Carlson (8 pts, 5 rebs, 4 stls) played the biggest parts in collectively consuming Lanesboro. Senior Kole Ruud pumped in 27

points (6-11 three’s, 7-14 FG’s, 7-7 FT’s) for the Burros. Their season ends at 17-10. R-P then faced the team they are likely to see in the East over the next couple years, the young Spring Grove Lions (2-seed, 25-3). The Trojans won a holiday tourney meeting with SG 79-43. And though the Lions (devoid of seniors) never tossed in the towel, they still headed to the bus with a second ‘L’ versus R-P. The Trojans took control with a 17-2 run out of gate. From there, their advantage never fell below eleven. R-P prevailed 83-65. The senior O’Hare came off the bench to score a careerhigh 26 points (3-6 three’s, 7-10 FG’s, 9-10 FT’s). Junior G’s Vix (17 pts, 3-4 three’s, 5-7 FG’s, 4 assists, 4 stls) and Kingsley (15 pts, 6-8 FG’s, 6 rebs, 6 assists, 5 stls) are a tremendous tandem. Chase Grinde (19 pts, 4-8 three’s), Alex Engelhardt (13 pts, 3-6 three’s), and Brady Schuttemeier (11 pts, 7 rebs) paced the Lions. R-P was an amazing 28-48 from the field (58%). Twenty-one of those field goals were assisted. Spring Grove wasn’t bad at 23 for 48 (48%). Both were good from deep (R-P 8-17/47%; SG 11-25/44%) but turnovers did SG in (24 to R-P’s 16). R-P will face West champ Goodhue (19-10) for the Section title.

An O’Laughlin three with 1:11 made it 45-44. A Broadwater FT made it 46-44. In the final twenty seconds, Ellinghuysen missed a two, but Julia O’Laughlin (Jenna’s sister) was fouled on the rebound. In the double-bonus, she missed the first, made the second. Broadwater tacked on two FT’s (she was 5-6 in the final 2:00) for the win) 1A East Quarter; 6-seed Kingsland (4-22) 44, 3-seed Spring Grove (187) 64 (K: Melinda Woods 11 pts, 5 assists.

My birthday article By Kirby O’Connor The day of writing this article is my birthday, March 3. I am 18 today. I am considered an adult by most rules of society now. The responsibility of being an adult is all around me. For the last few months I’ve been preparing myself for which college I would attend. I will be attending St. Mary’s University in Winona, Minn. this fall. With the transition between being a child and an adult over, I now have things for society I must do. I have to register for selective service and I will be voting in the next elections. There is more expected of me now also. I can’t rely on others to do things for me anymore. That’s probably the biggest difference between these last few years leading up to my 18th birthday. Responsibility has

Happy 50tH MicHell!

become very important in my life. I’ve learned how to manage my time, learned how to own up to my mistakes, and learned to be a more productive person. I’m going to miss being a kid and not having to be in charge but I think I’m ready for the next step in my life and I’m ready to be a productive member of society. Kirby O’Connor is a student at Fillmore Central High School. He is one of 8 area students participating in the Journal Writing Project, now in its fifteenth year.

Musings

“St. Patrick’s Day”. It’s the day one and all claim to have a touch of the IRISH so they can celebrate with the shamrocks and the music of the harps, parades, dances, parties, singing the Irish ditties, stories and, of course, the “drinking of the Guinness and the green beer.” In other words a reason to shake off the winter’s doom and gloom and breathe a little merriment into what has been a long, cold haul and looking forward to spring. I do have legitimate claim to the Irish as I am from a long line of short, auburn haired and blue-eyed Birth Announcement chunky, Irish men. With a maiden name such Teagan Lynn Cords as “McCraney” I can hardly deny it, Jared and Erin Cords of nor do I want to: I am the youngest Rushford, Minn. are proud of 11 and was born in Iowa. How I to announce the birth of their got Minnesota is a story for another daughter, Teagan Lynn Cords, time. born on March 1, 2014. My dad loved to cook, and at one Grandparents are Mark and time he was chief cook and bottle Dawn Volkman of Winona, washer and bread earner (another Minn. and Clark and Mary story) for his family of 10 before my Ellen Cords of Rushford, Minn. mother came along, and she was an excellent cook also. My dad used any holiday that came along as an excuse to gather kith and kin for a big meal and he was never happier than when Main Ave., Harmony • 507.886.7469 he was cooking us a big pot of something. 3 Days to Kill As for our lineage, when asked, he Friday, March 14 ..... ............... 7:30pM always said that we were Irish, PennSaturday, March 15 .................7:30pM sylvania Dutch and on my mother’s Sunday, March 16 ....................7:30pM side I am Welch and Dutch and EngRated PG-13 • Run Time: 1 hour 57 minutes lish.

I had a niece who www.jemmovies.com tried to research our family tree and www.facebook.com/JemTheatre she traced us back to somewhere in Northern Ireland near the Welch Border and that our ancestors were either tin miners or journalists, so that may be where I get my love for telling stories and keeping memories alive. I love to share stories with my grandkids. The older ones, when I start, roll their eyes and look at each other, groan, and say, “Here comes another Grandma story”, but they all seem to listen well. My dad loved the St. Patty’s Day celebration, not as much for the partying as an excuse for the gang to gather and eat and always made

BUBBLE AND SQUEAK”, which I always thought was an Irish dish, but is actually of English origin, but somehow got claimed by the Irish. I guess, according to the history books, the English helped them-

selves to much of what used to belong to the Irish. The Irish figured they could at least steal a recipe back. Anyway, the following recipe is my father’s rendition of Bubble and Squeak. We all looked forward to this. It meant as much for the company to have the chance to catch up with each other as for the food. Sorry say I am the only one left, but the memories and the stories are still there to share and tell. Until next time, enjoy!

Bubble and Squeak

3-4 lbs. corned beef brisket 8-10 small white onions (I use frozen onions) 2 lbs. fresh or 4 boxes brussel sprouts - If you really do not care for sprouts, use medium head of cabbage and cut into 8 wedges. 6 medium potatoes, peeled - or 8-10 red potatoes 1 lb. small carrots In a large roaster, place the corned beef brisket and cook as package directs. During last 45 minutes of cooking time, add potatoes and onions and return to a boil. Cook 20 minutes. Add carrots and brussel sprouts (or cabbage) and return to a boil and cook covered for 10 to 15 minutes. All vegetables should be fork tender. Remove corned beef to a large serving platter, let rest 10 minutes, slice beef and surround with the vegetables. Serve with mustard or spicy brown mustard.

complete any necessary demolition and preparation of the site, and to build the NTC facility. City Administrator Joe Hoffman explained that the city, as the fiscal agent, would receive the funding and see to the construction of the building. The city would own the building and the property it sits on. The city would have no fiscal responsibility in the acquisition of the land, preparation of the site, or the construction of the facility. Councilmen David Collett and Robert Maust were concerned about the ability of the NTC to support itself in its day to day operations once the facility is built. Maust insisted that the NTC hasn’t shown us how they could operate and maintain the NTC. He stated that they need to have a plan to support it once it is built. Maust was concerned about all the “unknowns,” adding that he didn’t believe the NTC had the financial support or the ability to raise money to maintain and operate a project of this size.

Dwight Luhmann, City Attorney and Chairman of the Preston EDA, noted that a feasibility study had been done. He also agreed that fund raising is an issue. Mayor Kurt Reicks responded that in his opinion this is a way to move forward, to acquire the property and to build the facility. Councilmen David Harrison and Charles Sparks voted yea and David Collett and Robert Maust voted nay. Reicks broke the tie with a yea vote, adopting the resolution. Other Business In Brief •Jim Bakken, Public Works, explained that the 1996 Elgin Pelican street sweeper was purchased in 2008. It has been a good piece of machinery, but it is in need of maintenance. The council approved the repairs, which in the worst case scenario will cost about $7,000 ($5,000 for parts and $2,000 for labor). •Approval was given to advertise for summer help. The city and utility each hire one summer employee to help with general maintenance work like mowing, painting curbs, watering flowers

Winter recovery - car care By Angie Rodenburg Winter has a way of wreaking havoc on our vehicles. Between the bitter cold, snow, sand, and ice it is no wonder that vehicles can encounter a whole slew of problems here in the Great White North. As we start to see the (hopefully) soon coming thaw, there are a few things you can do to lessen the wear and tear of your car and keep your vehicle running at peak performance. Steve Huper of Steve’s Auto in Chatfield, Minn. encourages driver’s to wash their vehicles

as often as possible. “Whenever there is a warmer day, take your car to the car wash,” said Huper. Huper also suggests opting for the underbody car wash option to get all the grit and grime out from under the car. If an even deeper underbody wash is needed, the guys at Steve’s Auto can hoist up vehicles and take a hose to the underbody, ensuring the car is as clean as possible. This service costs $25. Getting your car washed on a regular basis not only helps with the look of your car, it also is

necessary in keeping your vehicle in top running condition. A dirty underbody can cause rusty frames, ball joints, and tie rod ends. It can also negatively affect the steering and suspension components of the vehicle. “These parts have to be replaced more often here than in other part of the U.S.,” said Huper. Colby Lind, a teacher at Rushford-Peterson High School, gives students great advice in the “Car Care” class offered at the school. Lind recommends to keep testing your antifreeze even as it starts to thaw. Also, keep getting oil changes on schedule. Delaying a needed oil change during

Winter

the winter can be very hard on a vehicle. Lind also has a rule he keeps about never letting his fuel gauge get below the halfway mark. Lind also reinforces the northern staple of letting your car run before using it, watching your temperature gauge to know when the car is ready to be driven. When the outside temperatures are freezing, oil thickens. Engine damage can occur if motor oil is too thick in cold temperatures. Once the car is warmed up, the oil will flow more easily, ensuring it is lubricating every part of the vehicle that it needs to in order to run properly.

Lind also recommends to his students that everyone keep an emergency kit in their vehicles. This is important for any time of the year, but is especially important when there is snow on the ground. Lind also recommends that a blanket be kept in the vehicle in case of emergency, whether you are stuck and waiting for a tow truck or are stranded and have to sleep in your car overnight. Going the extra mile in taking care of your car can not only improve your vehicle’s performance and longevity, but can also help to ensure the safety of you and your family.

So much snow... no where to put it By Angie Rodenburg Driving on Highway 43 into Rushford the other day, I couldn’t help but notice the snow drifts that towered several feet above my car. In that moment I couldn’t help but be thankful that despite the massive amount of snow we’ve accumulated this winter, I was still able to drive safely on a clear road. It reminded me of all the hard working snow plow drivers have done and continue to do for us this winter. Dealing with the snow in my driveway can be frustrating enough. I’m glad I can rest assured that the roads will be taken care of. Mike Dougherty, our district’s MnDOT public affairs coordinator, says, “They [snow plow driver’s] take great pride in their work.” Snow plow drivers work around the clock, with each driver

taking a 12 hour shift at a time. Many breaks are allotted for such long shifts, ensuring that the drivers do not get over-tired. Snow plow drivers are having an especially difficult time this winter trying to push new snow into already full ditches. Due to the intense cold there has been very little snow melting. MnDOT has had to pull out the big machines in order to push back the huge snow piles; using front end loaders, snow blowers, and road graders. “It had been one of the toughest winters that Minnesota has seen,” said Dougherty. While pushing back piles is important to snow plow drivers, the top priority is to make sure the highways are clean. Safety is MnDOT’s main focus, according to Dougherty. Snow plow

drivers are doing what they can to improve visibility at intersections, though it has proved to be a difficult task with this amount of snow. MnDOT asks that motorists take extra caution and notify them via phone or email if they encounter a problem area. MnDOT advises motorists drive a little slower and plan the trip to take a little longer. Also, for the safety of snow plow drivers and motorists alike, give snow plow drivers plenty of space. “Don’t crowd the plow,” reminded Ron Gregg of the Fillmore County Highway Department. It is recommended that there be five car lengths between cars and plows. Being patient and alert will ensure everyone gets where they are going safely. In January alone there have been seven plow/ vehicle accidents in Minnesota. Thankfully there were no serious injuries. Ron Gregg, Fillmore County Highway Department County Engineer, asks that motorists give the plow drivers a little time as they are doing their best to push the snow back. The Fillmore County Highway Department is utilizing all 17 plows and blower to take on the snow in Fillmore County. A visit to the MnDOT website, www.511mn.org before traveling is a great way to ensure a safe trip. Snow plow drivers and motorists are always calling in the statuses of Minnesota roads to be updated on the website. If you’re out driving and you encounter a snow plow give the driver a thumbs up in appreciation for all they do.

Sesquicentennial Farm Applications due April 1 Minnesota Farm Bureau’s Sesquicentennial Farm program will honor Minnesota families who have owned their farms for at least 150 years. Since the Sesquicentennial Farm program began in 2008, over 165 farms have been recognized. The Sesquicentennial Farm program recognizes family farms according to the following qualifications: 1) The farm must be at least 150 years old this year (2014) according to the abstract of title, land patent, original deed, county land records, court file in registration proceedings or other authentic land records. Please do not send originals or copies of records. 2) Your family must have owned the farm for 150 years or more. “Family” is defined as parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, brothers, sisters, sons, daughters, first cousins and direct in-laws (father, mother, brother, sister, daughter, son-in-law). 3) Continuous residence on farm is not required, but ownership must be continuous. 4) The farm should consist of 50 or more acres, and currently be involved in agricultural production. A commemorative certificate signed by the Minnesota Farm Bureau Federation President Kevin Paap, Minnesota Department of Agriculture Commissioner Dave Frederickson and Governor Mark Dayton will be awarded to qualifying families, along with an outdoor sign signifying Sesquicentennial Farm recognition. Applications are available by writ-

ing Sesquicentennial Farms, Minnesota Farm Bureau Federation, P.O. Box 64370, St. Paul, MN 55164; emailing info@fbmn.org; or calling 651-768-2100. Applications are also available on our website, www.fbmn.org. Deadline for application is April 1. Previously recognized families should not reapply. Century Farms are not automatically recognized as Sesquicentennial Farms. Families must apply to receive Sesquicentennial Farm recognition. County Farm Bureaus are encouraged to work with county agriculture societies and county fair boards on local recognition of recipients. Recipients will be announced at the beginning of June.

Lanesboro discusses parking at Church Hill By Jade Sexton Church Hill Condominiums developer Dan Anderson approached the Lanesboro City Council about a parking issue that has been in question for some time now. He stated the property line goes right down the middle of the parking lot. Right now, people who attend Bethlehem Lutheran Church use the parking lot on Sundays and during church events. Anderson spoke about working out a joint maintenance agreement with the city for the parking lot. He had previously met with Bobbie Vickerman when she was administrator and said that she recommended the city take over the lot. Anderson said he is open to any ideas. City Attorney Tom Manion said the debate is the parking lot is private property, so should the city get involved and have to pay maintenance costs? City Administrator David Todd expressed some confusion about why the city would have

to take over. He recommended the parking spaces be moved so they are on Anderson’s property. He added it should have been developed so that the spaces were completely on his property. He also felt that it would be confusing and “muddy the waters” to get into joint agreement with the city. Theresa Coleman from the Public Utilities Commission reminded the council the city ordinance requires Anderson provide two off-street parking spaces for each unit. Council member and acting Mayor Tom Dybing agreed moving the spaces might be the best solution, so he is in compliance with the ordinance. Anderson said he will look into his options and get more information. Well Project Bids Theresa Coleman recommended the council accept a bid from Mark J. Traut Wells, Inc. for work on the well project. She explained they only received two

bids, which was fewer than they had hoped. One of the reasons was the depth of the well, which is 1,000 feet. Not everyone has the right equipment for that depth. Todd said the state has mandated a time table for the project, and it must be completed by the middle of 2015. Also, companies in Wisconsin and Iowa have had troubles with permits for blasting in Minnesota, and the project will require some blasting. Coleman said it was not recommended to try for more bids, because they could have trouble getting any bids at all. The council accepted the bid. Video for dam In order to pursue bond funds for the dam repair, Lanesboro has submitted a video to BuildMN. Todd said he saw a video example from Chatfield, and working with others, created a short video with photos and video of the dam, explaining why the city needs money for the project. “It was $200 to make, but it was well worth it,” said Todd. “I’m very excited about it.” There are more than 100 cities requesting funds from the state. Todd said he sent the video to Jeremy Miller and Greg Davids, as well as many other people. Farmers Market This is the 13th year of the Farmers Market, and Director Stena Lieb gave her annual report to the council. There are currently four members on the board, with one new member. Lieb said they will not be making any changes to the procedures, and if Amish people want to participate in the Farmers Market, they have to comply with the rules. Lieb also asked about the permanent sign for the market that was approved by the council. She would like to know size and location, since she has an artist lined up to create the sign. Todd said the park board was meeting soon and he would get her the details. Fire Department and Ambulance Ambulance Director Lee Peterson asked the council to change their business year from fiscal year to calendar year to simplify the records. The council approved and the business year for the ambulance will now run from January 1 through December 31. Rob Wagner, Lanesboro’s Fire Chief, said the fire department no longer meets the criteria to be required to have an annual audit. However, they are still required to file paperwork with the state. The cost difference if they choose not to do an audit is only $500. Because of this, Wagner suggested they continue with the audit in order to know where they are financially and for protection. The council was in agreement. Chamber Director Dee Slinde was introduced as the new Chamber of Com-

He also asked permission to seek quotes on a new computer for Deputy Clerk Michele Peterson. Her computer is from 2002, and she has had a lot of trouble with it freezing nad locking up. The council approved both. The council also gave Todd permission to get bids from Mediacom, who recently expressed interest in providing telecommunications for the city offices.

County adopts updated priority listings of its bridges By Karen Reisner At the county board’s March 4 meeting a resolution was adopted rating the county’s deficient bridges. The list provides a ten year plan to replace, rehabilitate, or remove these bridges if and when funding is available. The list is required by the state to receive state funding. County Engineer Ron Gregg explained that a bridge, especially timber bridges, may have to be moved up if they deteriorate faster than the others. There are thirty deficient township structures in the county. Seven bridges are scheduled for construction in 2014. They are located on Nature Road (Fillmore Township), Grosbeak Road (Carrolton Township), Kind Road (Carimona Township), Kodiak Road (Carimona Township), 121st Avenue (Sumner Township), Jet Road (Fountain Township), and 150th

Street (Beaver Township). The typical cost for the township is only $20,000. The actual cost to replace these bridges ranges from $100,000 to $600,000. Commissioner Duane Bakke suggested that there really should be a justification of need for some high cost bridges to be replaced. Some small bridges have or could be closed where residents could travel around another way. Commissioner Randy Dahl agreed that just because the bulk of the money is state or federal dollars doesn’t mean every bridge should be fixed. He added that bridges cost more due to state or federal requirements. Dahl suggested that flooding is less of a problem with smaller bridges that slow the water and debris compared to large structures that let it all rush through. Bakke said clear span bridges are much more expensive than cul-

verts. Chairman Chuck Amunrud maintained that engineering rules that come with federal and state dollars are in place for liability reasons. Bakke suggested federal dollars are being targeted toward major bridges like those that span the Mississippi River and are more limited for small, local bridges. Gregg explained that he was a member of a Bridge Committee composed of state and county engineers. As a group they are looking at alternatives for more economical structures. He agreed that liability is an issue for MnDOT. A bridge that is located on a dead end road that is only there for a couple of property owners, for example, could be rehabilitated and then turned over to the property owners. However, if such a bridge washed out after being turned over to private hands, it would be the responsibility of the

property owners to replace it. Gregg also described another alternative for bridges using flat bed rail cars that have been taken out of service. They are 50 to 70 feet long and can be placed on an old abutment and have been used for this purpose in Iowa. Dahl said he doesn’t think small, narrow bridges that will be structurally sound for decades should be replaced, just because they are only wide enough for one lane of traffic or because the dual wheels of a tractor hang over the edges. Gregg said some of those small bridges on dead end roads could be good for 100 years, adding we have to get MnDOT to accept them. Bakke said any alternatives concerning bridges need to be considered.

In the company of horses By Barb Jeffers Bring up the topic of horses to Tracy Hanson of Chatfield, Minn., and a certain glint comes into his eyes as he describes his love for horses. The only thing which brings a bigger smile to Tracy’s face is talking about his family and their involvement with horses as well. Hanson Horse Company, owned by Tracy and his wife Brenda, buys and sells horses of

all types. Many of the horses travel from Chatfield to Mackinac Island in Michigan where a ferry must be taken to get to the island and transportation on the island is limited to walking, riding a bicycle, or riding in a horse-drawn carriage. Hanson Horse Company supplies horses for carriage rides on the island. Tracy also furnishes horses to an Ohio tourist park that

features a tourist spot featuring a petting zoo, baked goods, handcrafted items, guided pony rides, a farm store, and draft horse rides during certain events. Buying and selling horses is how Tracy makes his living but his love for horses gives way to a hobby as well. Tracy’s father, Bob, bought and sold horses and as children Tracy and his siblings pulled ponies and then “we outgrew ponies and got horses,” he said. The thrill of pulling horses carried into adulthood and has spread throughout his family with everyone getting involved with horses in many ways. Tracy pulls with Belgians as they are “big heavyweight horses that work best for pulling,” he said. Big and heavyweight are a perfect description of these massive yet beautiful animals. A team of two of his horses pulled 12,500 pounds at a national pull which is a staggering show of the horses abilities. When the horses are in a competition and the pull is in front of the sled “They get excited to do their job,” Tracy said. The horses have their own personalities just as people do with some liking attention and others preferring to be left to

nine year old Belgian who is 18 hands tall. Each horse weighs approximately 2,700 pounds. The horses each eat one 60 pound square bale per day along with four gallons of grain. The work is hard and timeconsuming taking care of the horses and preparing for pulling competitions. The horses are worked every day for three to five weeks before a competition. Preparations for competitions as well as responsibilities during and after competitions also need to be done and Tracy always has help from family and/or friends when he attends competitions. Tracy attends pulling competitions throughout the year but more so during the summer. There are a few indoor pulls he competes in during the winter such as the Sioux Falls, South Dakota Farm Show and the North Dakota Farm Show, which have indoor coliseums. Prizes for horse pulling competitions are cash and/or tro-

phies. Hundreds of trophies are proudly on display at Hanson Horse Company as proof positive of the hard work and skill that the Hanson family shares. When it comes to horse pulling, “I’m pretty competitive” Tracy says. Brenda and Tracy’s daughters Brittany, Jessica, and Jennifer have all been involved with horses their entire lives and have many trophies for showing horses. Jessica has shown at state level with 4-H in the past and won first place with a horse she trained herself. Brittany’s husband fits well into the family as he shows horses as well. The entire family helps with the care of the horses. And the love of horses is carrying on to the next generation with Tracy and Brenda’s grandson, Rylen. At 22 months old Rylen has already taken to horses. When asked if Rylen will be a “puller”, his Grandpa got a big smile on his face and said, “We’ll see”, which probably means yes with Rylen’s heritage.

The FCJ reaches over 13,000 household each week.

Farmers Co-op Elevator hosts two ag expos Farmers Co-op Elevator (FCE) hosted its 1st Annual Ag Expos in Caledonia, Minn. on February 12 and Houston on February 13. The expos brought together regional experts and nearly a dozen agriculture suppliers to provide FCE’s customers with the information they need for their farm businesses. Over 140 area farmers took a break from their winter chores and took advantage of the FCE Ag Expos to learn from the experts and socialize with their peers. FCE knows it is important for farmers to have the latest information about agronomy and feed innovations and technologies. At the expos, livestock producers learned the results of hairy heel wart field tests conducted nationwide, including an FCE producer. When a heifer gets heel warts (digital dermatitis), there is a 75 percent chance that the animal will get heel warts as a lactating cow. This is an issue because heel warts can cause lameness. Zinpro field tested whether a new mineral premix with a specific assortment of trace minerals would help reduce heel warts. The research was successful, and Zinpro is now offering the mineral premix commercially to help keep livestock more comfortable and productive. Growing corn needs nitrogen, and new nitrogen management tools can help make sure each corn plant has the nitrogen it needs when it needs it while practicing good land stewardship. Corn growers learned how Winfield’s R7® Tool gives variable-rate prescriptions for seed, crop protection and crop nutrient applications, seeing on a computer screen how the R7 precision ag tool works with data from local farms. They also learned how WinField’s NutriSolutions 360° tool, a comprehensive approach to plant nutrition, can help them at critical times throughout the growing season to maximize yield potential. As expected, the market outlook sessions drew the biggest audience at the expos. Everyone was interested in hearing what Brian Rydlund, a senior market analyst with CHS hedging, had to say about what’s happening with grain markets and what they should be watching globally as we enter another crop season. In addition, representatives from Chr. Hansen, DeKalb, Diamond V®, Land O Lakes® Animal Milk Products Company, Mycogen®, Purina Animal Nutrition, and Syngenta were on hand to explain how their latest research and products could help area producers. FCE and the suppliers also teamed up to offer prizes — some with a value over $1,000. Prize winners were: Chuck Beckman, Ken Bergler,

Mike Bollinger, John Broers, Duane Conniff, Keri Eglinton, Tim Gordon, Mary Lou Graf, Al Hagen, Danny Hanson, Ted Hanson, Wayne Haug, Doug Heintz, Curt Johnson, David Johnston, Doug Jore, Steve Klug, Isaac Kronebusch, Jeff Langen, David Markegard, Bev Meyer, E.J.

Goldsmiths’ gentle giants By Barb Jeffers Dan Goldsmith says, “Don’t be intimidated by their size.” As I look up...way up to the face of “Fawn”, a strikingly magnificent Belgian horse, looks down with affection in her eyes. Amy and Dan Goldsmith own Goldsmith Belgians located outside Chatfield, Minn. and along with their family are active in many events to promote the breed. Sons Tyler, 20, Jared, 17, and Nathan, 13, combined with Dan’s parents and sister’s help, Dan and Amy attend to the horses needs at home and the work involved in participating in different events. The Goldsmiths enter the horses in shows and horse-drawn carriage competitions using prize money to invest back into the horses needs such as food and equipment. Goldsmith Belgians are involved in county fairs such as the Olmsted County Fair and the Minnesota State Fair, and have attended Iowa State Fair in the past. The family stays busy during the summer entering the horses

in approximately eight parades pulling a carriage with anywhere from one to six horses. Dan states that he enjoys bringing the horses and colts to parades as well as fairs so people can see them especially kids explaining that many town kids don’t get the chance to see and touch horses very often. Dan enjoys the temperament of Belgians saying they are easygoing and friendly, describing them as “gentle giants” and adding that they are like any other animal - if you treat them right they will treat you right in return. Sharing this special breed of horses is the reason the Goldsmiths do everything they do. On the day of a parade the Goldsmiths begin preparing at 7 a.m. giving bathes, brushing, and whatever else the horses may need. The horses and equipment then need to be loaded in order to arrive to the parade sight early so the Goldsmiths can braid the horses manes and get them harnessed to the carriage in plenty of time for the start of the

Monday, March 10, 2014

parade. And once the parade is over everything must be done in reverse before the day is over. “But people get to see them,” Dan says, which is what it’s all about. The family loves to see the reactions from children and adults when the horses are brought to an event. Dan says for some adults the horses can bring back childhood memories and for children the horses can create new memories and possibly a new affection for horses and the Belgian breed. Goldsmith Belgians also use the horses to give rides and hayrides and additionally still use the horses to clean the barns. The horses also get a large amount of attention from Tyler, Jared, Nathan and their friends who ride the horses for enjoyment. The Goldsmiths breed horses typically having two to six colts per year usually selling the stud colts and keeping the fillies. They also break the horses themselves. Dan finds that having children take care of horses teaches them responsibility. The horses have taught the family much more than responsibility however. One particular horse, Sally, “saved my dad’s life” said Dan.

His father, Wayne, was driving the horse on their land through a creek and hit a dirt clod which threw Wayne off of the wagon breaking his ribs and shoulder. The horse stood in the water next to Wayne and did not move until Dan’s son Jared came to help.
