Judge Benson retires By Jason Sethre jason@fillmorecountyjournal.com

For many of us, when we are fresh out of high school we don’t know exactly what we want to do for the rest of our life. But, often it finds us. That was the case for the Honorable Judge Robert R. Benson, as well. Since 1997, the Honorable Judge Robert R. Benson has served Fillmore County, while also serving alongside judges from 10 other counties – Dodge, Freeborn, Houston, Mower, Olmsted, Rice, Steele, Wabasha, Waseca, and Winona – all in the Third Judicial District. There are 289 judges serving in 10 districts in the state of Minnesota. Effective April 1, 2013, the Commission of Judicial Selection

will be looking for a replacement for Judge Robert R. Benson. His last day on the job will be March 31, 2013, as he retires from his seat on the bench, hangs up his black robe, and lays his gavel down one last time. While the majority of Benson’s career has been spent in a courtroom, he actually had other aspirations when he entered college at Augsburg back in 1963. He initially took an interest in Pre-medical, considering the possibilities of becoming a doctor. And, then he took a class on constitutional law, which triggered an interest in law. From that point forward, his interest in law became his primary focus, and he changed his major to political science, graduating from Augsburg in 1967.

Following graduation from Augsburg, Benson successfully passed the Law School Admission Test to get into WilliamMitchell College of Law, one of only two law schools in the state of Minnesota at that time. In 1971, he graduated from William-Mitchell College of Law and passed the State Bar Examination to become a lawyer in the state of Minnesota. As he reflects upon his career, he had a lot of different jobs that he enjoyed along the way. While going to college, he worked at a gas station, for Frost Paint & Oil, and the Northern Pacific Railroad. And, while attending college and law school, he worked for the Veteran’s Administration as an Adjudicator Legal Specialist See BENSON Page 7 

City Administrator Joe Hoffman at the council’s March 4 meeting detailed the pros and cons of combining the estimated $4 million worth of street improvements into one project. In early February councilman Robert Maust had suggested it may be cost effective to take advantage of current historically low interest rates and do the work as one large project rather than in two parts. He also questioned whether there would be a cost advantage by issuing the bonds early to get the unusually low interest rate. Hoffman explained that to prefinance the project would be a gamble and raise the interest rate by about .3 percent. Also, this type of financing is rarely done. Hoffman said the city of Kasson has the same AA- rating and has bonded for 2 percent on a 15 year debt. He added that financing the debt in one lump

sum in 2014 would put Preston in the moderate to high range of debt compared to capital assets. At the February meeting Hoffman had presented a scenario for street improvements which would be done in two parts, half in 2014 and half in 2018 with each $2 million bond being paid over 15 years. The city’s existing bond debt payments will end in 2016 and 2019. Hoffman explained the $4 million one time project could be feasible. Seven to ten percent could be saved. Project areas could be tied together more easily. A larger portion of the community will be assessed at once. Maust suggested that the streets will surely be good for twenty years and asked why not bond for 20 years instead. Hoffman noted that with a longer term, the interest rate would be a little higher. The negatives or cons for one large project include difficulty in staging so residents can maintain access, about twice the residents See PRESTON Page 3 

erans Cemetery. The parcel is currently zoned Industrial (I-1) and is located north and west of the county highway shop. The rezoning of the parcel to Agricultural-Residential (R-1) will allow for it to be used for a cemetery. Planning and Zoning recommended the rezoning after a public hearing. There was no comment from the public. Commissioner Duane Bakke reported that the cemetery is expected to serve veterans in a 75 mile radius including Wisconsin and Iowa residents. He said the cemetery will be developed in phases. The cemetery will be a model for others across the country as it will be unique due to its hilly terrain. Many veterans cemeteries are laid out on relatively flat fields. The project has slowly moved forward over the past three years. The application is in Washington D.C. and at this point hasn’t been officially signed. The rezoning request was approved. Other Business In Brief •Jim Bakken, Public Works, described work that needed to be done at the brush dump. He said it has been burned every year, but over the last seven years dirt, stumps, and other materials have piled up. He

recommended hiring Scheevel and Sons to do dozer work to level off the site and make it more usable. He estimated it will cost about $3,000 to open it up and another $1,000 to add road rock. Each year the city budgets $1,000 for this kind of maintenance work, but has only expended $143 since early 2009. The brush dump work was approved. Bakken proposed a bunker style storage area be built east of the city shop. The divided bunker would store road rock, bituminous,and so on. He proposed a unit that would cost about $8,130 for materials. There would be no outside labor cost. The cost would be split between the city and the utility. Maust asked about the distance the structure would be from the trout stream. Also, were there plans to put an apron in front of the structure? Bakken will get more information and bring it back to the next meeting. •The city has had a franchise agreement for 25 years with Minnesota Energy Resources to provide natural gas to the city.

As a regulated utility Minnesota Energy must seek approval from the state Public Utilities Commission to reset rates. The agreement is for “construction, maintenance and relocation of the gas distribution system within Preston.” The city attorney and staff recommended approval of the agreement. Approval was given to sign the new agreement. •The council approved advertising to hire a summer helper to do maintenance work including cutting grass and weeds, painting curbs and filling pot holes. In 2012 the three month position cost the city $5,000 for wages. •A resolution was unanimously approved in support of the State Legislature authorizing a user fee increase in the year 2013. The increase will more fully cover operational costs to maintain deputy registrar offices for local driver license and state I.D. services. Preston has the only deputy registrar in Fillmore County. Councilman Charles Sparks said it is important to keep this service here.

The FCJ reaches over 12,000 households each week.

C ommentary Stupid is as stupid does By Karen Reisner This well known quote from Forrest Gump seems to mean a person is tagged with the label of stupid when he or she does stupid things, regardless of that person’s intelligence. Our national political leaders have once again earned Karen Reisner this designation. The “sequester” or automatic $85 billion in spending cuts from the 2013 budget that went into effect on March 1 is not, in the light of the total national budget, that big of a cut back on spending. The nation will be able to absorb it, but at some pain and loss of economic growth. However, any of us that have trimmed a budget for business or for our own household know that when we need to cut back, we do that by reducing or eliminating items that do the least harm. The “sequester” cuts are estimated to cause a loss of one half of one percent in economic growth. The automatic spending cuts in defense and discretionary spending were never intended to be allowed to go into effect, but were meant to be so unpalatable that it would force a compromise. The presumed ramifications of these cuts failed to thaw the icy barrier standing in the way of progress in Washington. Let’s face it: many Republicans “hate” President Obama to such a degree that anything his administration proposes is met with their disapproval, regardless of the merit of those ideas. Obama and Democrats have distorted the pain and loss that would be felt by the country with the “sequester” in order to win the Editorial Cartoon

public in their favor. No doubt there will be pain, but most of us will not feel it directly and not for some time. Unfortunately, thousands will loose their jobs or have their work hours reduced. These showdowns that fail to produce positive and consequential legislation for the country again and again have turned the public off and hurt the economy and the nation in the eyes of the world. Nobody wins, not the Republicans, not the Democrats, and especially not the American people. Our two party system is ready to ‘cut the baby in half ” rather than give in a little to the other side and do what it best to nurture it. We need tax reform which will produce added revenue, mostly through reducing subsidies and eliminating loopholes. Our government has real structural problems that need to be addressed for the long term economic health of the country. This is the one fact that both sides recognize. We need reforms of health programs including Medicare and Medicaid to keep them solvent for years to come. Every Washington politician knows that. They have seen the projected numbers as the baby boomers retire, people live longer, and health care costs continue to sky rocket year after year. The “sequester” for the most part makes no attempt to deal with the cost of health care. Medicare and Medicaid expenses last year were about 5 percent of the Gross Domestic Product (GDP). By 2037 Medicare and Medicaid are projected to be nearly 10 percent of the nation’s GDP. It is likely that the cutbacks will take one step forward in reducing the deficit and at least a half of a step back. If military equipment is kept in service without proper maintenance, it

may cost more in the long run to fix damage that could have been averted. There will be less tax revenue if the economic recovery is slowed. We won’t know what medical research break through may have been delayed for years or may never happen due to cutbacks. These are examples of the kinds of losses that could be limited with smart, thoughtful spending reductions. The next looming crisis is the continuing resolution to keep the federal government running later this month. Let’s hope some of the adults in Washington can do their jobs, act competently, and take the lead to get the big long-term bargain that puts our nation on the road to fiscal health. This inability to get past the nation’s fiscal problems will get in the way or delay addressing other important issues facing our country like immigration. Minnesota Tax Reform? Governor Mark Dayton has proposed tax reform that would raise about $2 billion and shift the tax burden, especially away from property taxes. His plan is to wipe out the $627 million 2014-2015 structural deficit and provide more funding for education, property tax reductions, Health and Human Services, and economic development. The deficit for the next biennium is expected to be $463 million less than the earlier estimate of $1.1 billion. His plan would broaden the sales tax base and lower the sales tax rate from 6.875 percent to 5.5 percent, lower the corporate tax rate from 9.8 percent to 8.4 percent while expanding the corporate income tax base (closing loopholes), and provide tax relief for property owners. Sales would then be taxed on additional items including, but not limited to the following: digital purchases, clothing costing over $100, over-the-counter drugs, personal

care services, legal and accounting services, repair services, and business to business services. He would create a fourth income tax rate tier for the top 2 percent of income earners raising the rate to 9.85 percent, a 2 percent increase. The cigarette tax would be increased by 94 cents to $1.42 per pack. The business property tax will be frozen for two years and then subject to a slower rate of increase year to year. Dayton suggests that the broadening of the sales tax base and the lowering of the rate will not cause a net tax increase for most Minnesota families. Dayton wants to provide $40 million more funding for County Program Aid and $80 million more for Local Government Aid. These increases would begin in 2014. Local property taxes would presumably see less of an increase with additional state aid. That is if other changes he has proposed don’t cost counties and cities more and have the effect of neutralizing any additional aid. He has proposed a $500 rebate to homeowners regardless of income. Whether or not these tax reforms proposed by Dayton become law even in part, it is

healthy to consider a rebalancing of the tax burden and to begin the discussion. A priority in Dayton’s plan is property tax relief. The plan provides for additional funding to some areas that have been burdened with significant cuts over the last several years. This plan is thought out and there surely are and will continue to be differing opinions on its fairness and benefits. Whether or not his proposals become law, the proposals deserve examination and consideration for taking a first step toward rising above “stupid is as stupid does.”

C ommentary Letter about Greg Davids survey To the Editor, One of the questions that Greg Davids brought up in his questionnaire was to put a 3.5 percent tax on our insurance premiums. I don’t know about anyone else, but my insurance premiums are a huge chunk out of our check already. Health care is our biggest expense. My husband is on Medicare

but we still have to pay $100 up front and another $100 for the supplement and another $50. for his prescription insurance. I have to pay $258 a month for my health insurance and I have to come up with $10,000 for a deductible. Now add in our house insurance and car and truck insurance which is another $200 + and there isn’t much left after the check. I checked and found that $73

billion dollars is lost by hospitals each year by people that don’t have insurance. This amount is tacked on to us that already have insurance. I have to be really ill to go to the doctor because I can’t afford to go, then I hear from a friend that their daughter took her daughter to the emergency room instead of urgent care because she didn’t want to pay the $7 co pay. When I worked at Sauer a few

What’s ahead in Congress this year By Lee Hamilton Earlier this year, it seemed there might be some hope for Capitol Hill when Congress dealt easily with raising the debt ceiling. But don’t let that single episode fool you. As President Obama and H o u s e Republicans circle each other over the forthcoming budget cuts known as the “sequester,” Lee Hamilton it’s a reminder that Congress and the White House have a complicated legislative agenda ahead -- and that none of the items on it will come easily. We’ll get to the specifics in a moment, but two things need to be said up front. The first is that despite President Obama’s exhortations in his State of the Union speech, major policy changes will be difficult to make. The Democrats may have increased their margin in the Senate, but the Republicans still control the House. The ideological polarization and apparently incompatible views that marked dealings between the two bodies show no sign of abating. Significant policy initiatives are not impossible, but it’s safest to have subdued expectations.

Second, although rank-andfile members seem more willing than in the recent past to part with their caucuses on high-profile votes, power will continue to rest with the leadership. Over the year ahead, the dynamic to watch will involve the caucus leaders in both houses -- ordinary members may have some impact on the margins, but they won’t be the center of the action. The big issue, of course, will continue to be the budget and fiscal affairs. The major questions are: Can we get our fiscal house in order? Can we revive economic growth and make the investments we need in human and physical capital? And can we figure out a reasonable way to pay for the government we require -- one that doesn’t need the 73,000 pages of rules and regulations that burden our current tax code? However Congress and the White House proceed, it’s unlikely there will be any “grand bargain.” Instead, they are likely to make piecemeal progress on the core issues: increasing tax revenues and cutting spending on entitlements. Confrontations over these matters will make it harder to tackle other economic issues that need addressing, such as how to address the regulation of the biggest banks and how to finance the infrastructure that our economic growth desperately needs. Congress will also turn to health care. As long as President Obama is in office, his signature health plan will not be repealed, but there will almost certainly be fights over its implementation and funding. The big issue -- how to control health-care

costs -- will remain a centerpiece of the debate, but it is unclear how it will get addressed. On the other hand, there is unambiguous movement on immigration reform. While Democrats have coalesced around a comprehensive approach to the issue -- which would include ways of easing the stay of highly skilled workers, a guest-worker program, and a path to citizenship for the 11 million illegal immigrants in the country -- Republicans have generally preferred tackling specific issues separately. The two sides can find common ground, especially on highskilled workers. Possible citizenship, on the other hand, will be much knottier to resolve. So while the gridlock may be easing, comprehensive reform of our broken immigration system is not assured. You can also look for piece-bypiece initiatives on gun control. While the White House and some members of Congress are looking for wide-ranging legislation banning assault weapons and high-capacity magazines, others are focused on specific proposals that can gain bipartisan support. Some members with widely different views, for instance, are coalescing around an effort to expand requirements for background checks on gun sales. Climate change, which gained national force last year with Hurricane Sandy, is less likely to see congressional action. Despite the

years ago, a couple of kids said that they only have to pay $6 a month for their Minnesota care. Now, I feel that if the average senior citizen that makes about $900 a month on Social Security has to pay $100 a month for health care, and there is no choice then the people on the Affordable Care should be able to come up with that too. I remember working 2 jobs and so did my husband to make ends meet some months

and we got no help from government. There is billions given to the health care system and our health care is going in the toilet. Maybe our legislators should stop favoring all the lobbyists and start doing their job instead of thinking that we should just add another tax to the already taxed to death people of our country.

certain threat of rising seas and storm surges, Congress seems unprepared to get serious about it. Instead, as he promised in the State of the Union, if Congress cannot act the President will take whatever steps he can by executive order, as he just did with cyber-security. There are drawbacks to this

approach, but it is a reminder that when Congress is able to act it remains a player, and when it can’t, it deals itself out of the policy picture. Lee Hamilton is Director of the Center on Congress at Indiana University. He was a member of the U.S. House of Representatives for 34 years.

BENSON

Continued from Page 1

from 1967 to 1972. Moving to Preston After completing law school and passing the State Bar Examination, Benson continued to work for the Veteran’s Administration along with his own private law practice. At that time, while living in St. Paul, Bob and his wife Sandy became the parents of their first child, Rebekah, born in 1971. Bob kept thinking about where they should be raising their family, and he thought about what it was like to go back and visit his uncle and grandfather on their family farm in Owatonna. While Bob graduated from Brooklyn Center High School, he was originally born in Owatonna, so he had roots from the farm. Meanwhile, Sandy was born and raised in the Minneapolis area. So, Bob kept his eyes open for opportunities in which his personal and professional aspirations might intersect. And, along came an opening in Fillmore County for an attorney in Preston, Minn. While Bob had never been to Preston before, he made the trek down to this area and immediately fell in love. He knew that it would be a tough sell to get Sandy, the city girl, to move to a smaller community, so he told her he

wanted to take her on a tour of the area. They traveled down to Preston, and then along Highway 16 through Lanesboro and all the way to Rushford, peering up at the bluffs and downward at the winding river. Sandy fell in love with the area, as well. Their destiny became clear, and Preston would become their home. Bob applied for a position with David Joerg Law Office, and began working for Joerg in 1972. In 1974, while his son, Matthew, was on his way into this world, Bob ran for the part-time Fillmore County Attorney position and he won. Benson served as the Fillmore County Attorney from 1974 until he was named Judge in 1997. During His Service When asked what was different about today’s issues in the courtroom he deals with versus the way things were when he first started, he said they still see many of the same types of cases year after year. However, Fillmore County tends to see increases and decreases in the volume of cases and that volume is never predictable. Probably the most challenging part of his job as Judge related to cases involving the children. He recalled about 15 years ago when a father had been charged with the murder of his three-year-old son. During that trial, he thought about his own grandson, who was exactly the same age. Benson

said that case, which happened in Houston County but was moved to Fillmore County, was emotional for everyone involved. Year after year, Benson saw how children were affected by decisions he would have to make. He had difficult decisions, but he wanted to make sure they were always in the best interest of those children. And, at night when he was at home, he thought about those decisions and hoped things would turn out for the best. And, while being a judge meant that he had to make decisions that would not always be wellreceived from those who were subject to consequences of their actions, he did find a measure of gratitude when he found out he made a difference in someone’s life. “Sometimes you crafted solutions that worked out good. This is when you saw that you made a difference,” shared Benson. During his service as District Judge for Fillmore County, he has faced three elections, 1996, 2002 and 2008, and was elected each time. In 2008, Benson was named “Judge of the Year” from the Minnesota District Judges Association, bestowed the “Award For Exemplary Service.” In January 2009, the Honorable Judge Robert R. Benson was selected to be the Chief Judge of the Third Judicial District, consisting of the 11 counties

in Southeast Minnesota. For that additional role, his responsibilities included managing the resources as efficiently as possible for the Third Judicial District. In January 2013, Judge Jeff Thompson of Winona County District Court, was selected to be named Chief Judge for the Third Judicial District taking over for the retiring Judge Benson. After Retirement Now approaching his 68th birthday, Benson’s retirement comes with a bit of mixed emotions. He will miss being a part of all that is involved in his daily responsibilities. But, most importantly, he said, “I’ve been really, really lucky to work with wonderful people all these years. I’ve been lucky to work with great people. It’s been a really good career!” According to Bob, his wife of 45 years, Sandy, is looking forward to spending more time with him. His long days, usually ranging around 11 to 12 hours per day, take time away from family. While Bob feels that he is not old enough to retire, he is also looking forward to doing the things he hasn’t been able to do for a long time. He enjoys cooking, fishing, hunting, woodworking and reading. And, Bob and Sandy have a piece of land outside of Preston in which they maintain food plots for deer and manage native

grasses and wildflowers. Bob will have plenty to keep him busy, and that is his plan. Our Next Judge Without a doubt, Judge Benson’s role in Fillmore County and this corner of the state of Minnesota has been significant. He has presided over the Fillmore County District Court for well over 16 years. While Fillmore County has grown accustomed to the household name of Judge Benson, seeing his name as the oversight of our judicial system in this area in the Fillmore County Court Reports throughout the pages of the Fillmore County Journal, there will be a new household name in the near future. The Commission of Judicial Selection is currently accepting applications for Judge Benson’s position, and will accept them until the close of business on Monday, March 25, 2013. Interviews are scheduled to be held on Tuesday, April 9, 2013, at the Fillmore County Courthouse in Preston, Minn. From those interviews, the top three candidates will be selected, and their names will be made available to the public. Those three candidates will then endure an interview process with Governor Mark Dayton, and he will ultimately have the final decision on the next Judge of the Fillmore County District Court.

Arlene and Floyd were married on June 7, 1945, in Peterson. The couple farmed for many years in rural Peterson. Following Floyd’s death in 1976, Arlene moved to Peterson and later to the Good Shepherd Lutheran Home in Rushford. Arlene was an accomplished pianist and loved teaching. Despite her challenges with Multiple Sclerosis, she always had a smile on her face and never complained. She was a member of Grace Lutheran Church and was the first President of the American Legion Auxiliary in Peterson. Arlene is survived by two children: Patricia (Steven) Chapman of Dakota, Minn. and Wayne (Becky) Ferden of Preston, Minn. and five grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her husband, parents and two siblings: Leland Dahle and Ellen “Toots” Westberg. The funeral service was Sunday, March 10, at Grace Lutheran Church in Peterson. Burial was in the West Grace Lutheran Cemetery in Peterson. Opal Violet Lubrecht Opal Violet Lubrecht, 88, of Harmony, Minn. died peacefully after a short illness on Monday, March 4, 2013 at St. Mary’s Hospital in Rochester, Minn. Opal was born on November 16, 1924 in York Township, Fillmore County, Minnesota, the daughter of Ingval and Clara

(Hendrickson) Bjortomt. Opal cared for her parents up until their deaths while living in Bristol Center, Minnesota. On April 15, 1958 she married Arthur Lubrecht at Saetersdal Lutheran Church, rural Harmony. They moved to their home in Greenleafton in 1969 where they lived until 2005. During that time she worked at HECO for nine years followed by 20 years as a home health aide. Art and Opal moved to the Harmony Manor in 2005 and from there they moved to Harmony Healthcare Center. They were happily married 51 years. Art died in 2009 at the age of 100. God’s gift to Opal was the ability to be a caregiver. She used that gift and touched the lives of everyone around her. Opal was a longtime member of Saetersdal Lutheran Church. She loved gardening, canning her own vegetables and crocheting in her younger years. Opal is survived by one brother, Kenny Bjortomt of Two Harbors, Minnesota; 13 nieces and nephews; and 23 great nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by one brother Lyle (Buddy) Bjortomt; and one sister Leona Grabau. Funeral services were held Saturday, March 9, 2013 at the Saetersdal Lutheran Church with Rev. Maureen Hagen officiating. Burial was in the Saetersdal Lutheran Cemetery.

Chong Ok Paulsen Chong Ok Paulsen, formerly of Rochester, MN and Ostrander, MN died Friday, March 1, 2013 at her home in Tucson, Arizona. Ok was born in Korea and came to Minnesota after she and Kenneth Paulsen were married on December 30, 1965. Ok worked at the Ostrander Care Center and Spring Valley Care Center for many years until moving to Rochester. After Ken’s retirement from IBM, they sold their home in Rochester and traveled in their 5th wheel motor home. Winters were spent in Tucson, Arizona and the warmer weather months in Rochester and her favorite place of Grand Marais, MN. Ok enjoyed many kinds of

Page 9

crafting and knitting and made many beautiful items for her family to enjoy over the years. Ok is survived by her husband, Ken of Tucson, sisterin-law and brother-in-law, Carol (Marvin) Lenz, sister-in-law and brother-in-law, Sue (Tom) Fowler of Spring Valley, sister-inlaw, Lydell (Brett) Reinardy of Hampton, MN and many nieces and nephews.

No formal services are scheduled at this time. As was her wish, her ashes will be scattered near Grand Marais.

Amunrud explained that the county can use State Aid funding instead of using the local tax levy. Cities under 5,000 population are not eligible for State Aid funding. He continued saying some projects have been held up when the city has had to bear all of these costs. When asked what they thought of the proposed revision, Illg said it is wonderful and Hoffman added it was a good idea and will be a great benefit to communities. As projects are proposed and are scheduled in the Five Year Capital Improvement Program, the county engineer or representative will meet with staff of the city to discuss the project. An agreement will be drafted to be approved by both the county and the city. If a city has to do a repair on utilities under a roadway post construction, it is up to the city

to return the roadway to good condition. Chairman Randy Dahl asked about a situation when the county expends funds to do the engineering for a project within city limits and the city then fails to approve the project. If the project is shelved, the county is out the funds expended for the engineering. County Engineer Ron Gregg responded if the city has not concurred with the proposed project, we will not go forward. Approval was given for adjustments for security doors and for flooring for the Highway Administration Building remodel. A one month extension to the contract because of delay for flooring materials was approved. It is now expected that the remodel project will be completed by April 10. Advertisement for the following construction projects was improved: CSAH 23 full depth reclamation and overlay, CSAH 17 resurfacing in Preston from library to bridge, CSAH 35 resurfacing in Harmony, and CSAH 1 a total reconstruction in Spring Valley between Highways 63 and 16. Gregg will analyze which surfacing material will be best for CSAH 24, concrete or blacktop, and bring a recommendation back to the next meeting. Gregg noted anything built at this point will be a 10 Ton road.

Semcac Services Semcac Director Wayne Stenberg reviewed the programs and services Semcac provides. The organization has been serving southeast Minnesota for 46 years. The main office is in Rushford with a workforce of 235 people covering 79 locations in seven counties. Of the 235 employees, 77 are fulltime, 96 part-time and the rest are seasonal. Over 3,500 volunteers donated over 115,000 hours of their time to help provide services. Dahl, who is one of three from Fillmore County who sits on the Semcac Board of Directors, thanked Stenberg and his staff for their work. The organization runs a lot of programs for the state and federal governments. Dahl said the staff has done a good job over the past few years even with their efforts being complicated by inconsistent funding. Stenberg said it has been a challenging time. He said Headstart will be affected by the federal government sequester. Semcac programs offered in Fillmore County include Senior Nutrition dining and meals on wheels, senior and caregiver advocacy, retired and senior volunteer program, weatherization and housing services, outreach and emergency services - food shelf, Head start, Transportation, and Energy assistance.

Other Business In Brief •The Institutional Community Work Crew contract was renewed with the Minnesota Department of Corrections at the same rate of $55/day for each inmate effective July 1. Sheriff Daryl Jensen called this contract that allows for state inmates to work in the Sentence to Serve (STS) program a “winwin.” Currently, the county has three state inmates. The state inmates guarantee an STS crew every day. A low wage is paid by the county. Jensen said he highly recommended renewal of the contract. •Sheriff Jensen was granted approval to replace three older vehicles with new. He said the purchase of a replacement 2013 Chevrolet Impala (patrol car) at the state contract price of $20,373.20, a 2013 Dodge Durango (Chief Deputy’s vehicle) at a price of $25,875.00, and a Dodge Grand Caravan (jail vehicle) at a price of $21,000.00, will be

at significant savings and under the total budgeted for the three replacement vehicles. The older vehicles will be sold and are high mileage and/or experiencing mechanical issues. The purchase of four Intoximeters III at $279.00 each was approved. The testing equipment will be partially paid for with Toward Zero Death funds, $460. The purchase of Video Conference (Mspace) Maintenance Renewal at the cost of $1,769.45 was approved. All of this expense will be reimbursed by Region 1 Emergency Management Grant. •Out of state travel was approved for Veteran Services Officer Jason Marquardt to Fort Bliss, Texas from March 22-March 25. Marquardt will serve as an alternate for reintegration of returning Minnesota National Guard. Costs will be paid if he makes the trip through the National Guard, grant money and county funds up to $500.

Fillmore County Sports Gopher Wrestling posts best finish ever By Paul Trende If someone had told the Chatfield wrestling team that they’d end the 2012-2013 season with a win, the Gophers would’ve naturally been ‘all-in on that one.’ A third place finish probably wasn’t their dream, but it’s certainly special. It’s the best finish the school has ever had in wrestling. It might also be just the beginning. The Gophers (5-seed, 29-1), who finished the season ranked #8 in Class A, opened with a contest versus Kerkhoven-Murdock-Sunberg (4-seed, 16-2), ranked #4. Chatfield made hay from 120145, getting five straight wins from #5 at 120 Hank Friederichs (10-2 MD), #4 at 126 A.J. Riley (4-1 over #2 Cody Peters), #3 at 132 Harvey Friederichs (4-1), #5 at 138 Alex Haffner (12-3 MD), and Ryan Meeker (7-3). The Gophers built a 23-3 lead. A trio of K-M-S falls reduced the lead to 23-21. Cody Bly (182; pin), Jacob Bleess (220; a big 7-6 decision over #8 at 195 Chase

Norton), and #7 at 195 Justin Viss (285; pin) then cemented things with three wins. Chat downed K-M-S 38-24. That put the Gophers up against Jackson County Central (21-2), the #1 seed. JCC spent the entire season ranked #1 in Class A. After 132, things were deadlocked at 9 points apiece. An Alex Haffner 6-4-decision win at 138 gave Chatfield a brief 12-9 lead. JCC then rolled out their studs (two #1’s, a #2, and a #4). They racked up six points in five straight matches, taking in insurmountable 39-12 lead. Chatfield won the final three weights and fell to the eventual state champions 39-25. The loss put Chatfield in the 3rd place match with #9 Sibley East (23-9). The Gophers beat the Wolverines in December (35-31) at the New Prague duals. The re-match was similarly tight. Chatfield built a 25-11 lead after 152. They then lost the next three matches to trail 28-25. A Cody Bly 10-0 MD (195)

Chatfield senior Justin Viss is Athlete of the Week. Viss didn’t wrestle for a state championship, like Harvey Friederichs, Niko Anderson, or Jordan Theede. He did, though, via a pin versus Sibley East, give his Gophers the team 3rd place. The two days that followed that, Viss fought his way to a 5th place individual finish at state. He wrestled 9 matches over three days, going 7-2. Photo by Paul Trende

got Chat the lead back (29-28). Sibley East won 220 via TF (3329). It all came down to Justin Viss at 285. Viss got a dramatic pin, and got his team the 3rd place trophy, 35-33. Hank Friederichs, Bly, and A.J. Riley were All-Tournament. That trio, 8th-ranked 106-pounder Jared Goldsmith, and Viss all went 3-0. The Gophers end the season a magnificent 31-2. Graduating just two seniors (Viss, Sam Fryer), it’s good reasoning they won’t begin next year unranked. It’s good reasoning they could make a return trip to state. Three State Runner’s Up One could say the status of high school wrestling in Fillmore County is pretty good. All one had to do was or follow the state individual wrestling tournament. County-based grapplers were everywhere. Of the 13 entrants (8 from Chatfield, 3 from LARP, 1 each from GMLOK and FCLMC), three wrestled for state titles, five others placed, and all but two got at least two wins under the brightest wrestling lights. Highlighting the action were Chatfield’s Harvey Friederichs, Lanesboro-native, FCLMC representative, Niko Anderson, and Lewiston-Altura attendee, LARP representative, Jordan Theede. Each wrestled for a state championship. Friederichs (132) started with a couple decision wins (4-0 and 2-0). He then pinned USC’s 4th-ranked Dylan Herman to make the finals. His opponent was his kryptonite: JCC’s #1 ranked Elliot Jurries. Harvey lost 5-1. He’ll finish his junior year as state runner up at 132 (44-3 record). All three losses came to Jurries. Niko Anderson, who began the year unranked at 170 and finished at #8, surely got some respect. He started with a 2-1 win, then beat #6 Isaac Josephson 4-2 in OT in the quarters, and then beat #3 Maverick Whitcomb 3-1 in OT in the semis. In the finals, he fell to JCC’s #1 ranked Darick Vancura 5-2. Vancura was 160-pound champ in 2012. Anderson finishes his junior year as 170-pound runner up (37-2 record). Jordan Theede’s state experience included some irony.

18 SE 3rd St. Chatfield, MN 507-867-4120 888-766-8748 www.rrsbchatfield.com

He moved his way to the finals with three wins (12-6, pin, 3-1 OT), two over top 10 wrestlers. There, the 3rd-ranked Theede faced 2nd-ranked Brady Ayers of WEM/JWP. Jordan beat Ayers for the Section 1AA 160-title. Ayers handed Theede his only loss earlier in the year. The third installment had Ayers go over, 8-3. And thus, Theede is 1AA 160-pound champ, but Ayers, from Section 1AA, is the 160pound state champ. Theede ends his junior year with a 28-2 record. Five other county wrestlers placed. Chatfield’s Hank Friederichs (120) opened with a pin, lost to JCC’s Jordan Biehn 7-2, then rattled off four decision wins (5-1, 5-1, 4-2, and 6-2), the last over Biehn for 3rd place. It was (at least) the fourth meeting between the two with Hank winning three. He finishes his sophomore year with a 47-2 record. Hank finished 5th last year at state. Teammate Justin Viss finished out his stellar wrestling career nicely. Viss won (6-1), lost (6-5 to #1 Nathan Rose, the eventual state champ), won (9-3), won (15-3), lost (4-2 to 3rd ranked Lucas Etchason of Triton, the guy Viss beat for the Section 1A title), before winning 7-2 to claim 5th place. Viss ends his senior year with a 36-9 record. He improves upon last year’s 6th place finish. LARP seniors Greg Johnson (182; 32-10) and Evan Bain (285; 30-8) both took 6th (going 2-3). Bain pinned his way to the semis only for lose three straight. GMLOK senior Lucas Roe (152; 41-5) also took 6th. He went 3-3. Gophers Goldsmith (106; 39-7), Riley (126; 43-5), and Haffner (138; 41-4) each went 2-2 (didn’t place). Meeker (145; 30-14) and Bly (170; 37-6) each went 0-2. Each Chatfield Gopher wrestled up to three team matches Thursday, and then their allotment of individual matches Friday and Saturday. They are manimals (definition, ½ man, ½ animal). Fouls and Free Throws It wasn’t a shock that topseeded Rushford-Peterson (1512) and 2nd-seeded Spring Grove (22-6) met up for the

1A-East girls title. R-P had little trouble downing 4-seed LeRoyOstrander in the semis. They jumped ahead 25-2 and coasted from there to a 65-33 victory with Amy Todd (18 pts, 8 rebs) and Sierra McNamer (13 pts, 11 rebs) leading the way. Spring Grove, on the other hand, walked through 3-seed Grand Meadow for a third time this season, 63-41. Meeting number two between R-P and SG (the Trojans won in December) was a close affair, one dominated by fouls and FT’s, and some more fouls and FT’s. Neither worked in the Trojans favor. R-P’s trouble began almost right way. SG went in the bonus early in the 1st half. Still, R-P took a 30-25 lead into halftime mainly cause the Lions had 20 TO’s. The 2nd half was similar; fouls, FT’s, and R-P clinging to small leads. With just over 2:00 left, the Trojans led 52-48. With 0:40 left, they trailed 56-52. A Keela Brand offensive-rebound putback closed the score to 56-54. Lion Samantha Bratland then went to the FT line. She made both, but the second was waived off per a lane violation. Kendra Crawford then came down court and buried a game-tying three with 0:15. SG had a chance in the last few seconds, but if didn’t go, sending the game to OT. There the Trojans led 62-61 with 1:00 left. SG’s Addy Cross subsequently banked home a mid-range jumper to put the Lions up 63-62 (0:24). Hope Morrison took a three. It rimmed out. Cross made a FT (0:08). With four players fouled out, R-P couldn’t even get the ball across half-court in the final seconds before turning it over. By a final of 65-62, the Lions won their third straight 1A East crown, second straight over R-P. Senior Amy Todd went out leading the Trojans (24 pts, 10 rebs, 5 assists). McNamer had 16 points and Mariah Mueller 10. Nicki Ellingson (15 pts, 10 rebs), Cross (14 pts, 12 at the FT line, 7 rebs), Bratland (14), and Randi Mehus (13), all reached double figures for SG, which See SPORTS Page 12 

had no foul outs. The teams combined to shoot 70 freebies. SG was 30 for 44, R-P 15 of 26. And R-P’s foul outs (Crawford, McNamer, Mueller, Brand) effectively offset the 34 TO’s R-P’s physical full-court press forced. The Trojans had their chances. They seriously out-shot SG (20 of 75 to 16 of 39), but made just 26.6% (to SG’s 41%). R-P finishes the season at 15-13 as 1A-East runners-up. Boys Sub-Sections The Mabel-Canton Cougars kicked off the boys half of the post-season. M-C (7-seed, 6-19) hosted Houston (10-seed, 2-23) in a 1A-East play-in game. The contest played out like the two regulars season meetings (55-36 and 62-36 M-C wins). The Coug’s got off to a 31-8 halftime lead and cruised to a 63-48 victory.

As the sport is intense for the fans, there is even more intensity on

Lanes’ two junior phenoms, Kole Ruud (29 pts, 5 of 7 from deep, 6 assists) and Luke Rogers (22 pts, 6 of 12 from deep, 11 rebs) led the way. Daulton Gartner (10 pts, 10 rebs) and Erik Peterson (11 pts, 5 rebs, 5 assists, 4 stls) also left their mark. As a team, Lanes made 15 of 29 three’s (an impressive 53%).

pts, 12 rebs) and junior Nick Powell (17 pts, 13 rebs) led the way. Jake Tammel (14) and PG Logan Masters (13) both also reached double figures. In Class AA action, county teams weren’t so successful. Kingsland (#6 in the West, 7-19) took the long trip to Lake City (3-seed, 20-4) and fell 77-51. Filip Swanson (16) and Marshall Oeltjen (11) were the leading scorers. The Tigers had four in double figures. Kingsland’s season ends at 7-20. Five-seed Winona-Cotter (14-11) slowed down, and upset 4-seed (15-10) Chatfield. The Ramblers held Chatfield to 15 first half points, and led 25-15 at the break. The Gophers made a run in the second stanza. They tied it at 39 with 0:50 to go, but Cotter got an inbounds hoop to go back in front (0:28). Chatfield then missed a go-ahead three with 0:15 left. Cotter made two FT’s; they were 14 of 18 for the game (versus the Goph’s 5 of 7). Via a final of 43-39, Cotter got the win. Mitch Irish (12 pts, 9 rebounds) and Jayme LaPlante (11 pts, all in the 2nd half, 9 in the final 6:00) led Chatfield. They finish at 15-12.

FCLMC’s Anderson ‘pins’ state runner-up title the shoulders of the participants. Anderson described the state tournament as having an exciting atmosphere, stating, “It took awhile to take everything in… the lights, the noise.” Anderson went into the beginning of his season with the goal of being a state tournament entrant, never expecting to come out with the title of “second in state.” The thought of actually placing never really entered his mind. He faced some tough competition at the state tournament as he worked his way through the championship bracket. Two of his matches resulted in overtime wins. His championship match took place Saturday evening at around nine o’clock, which resulted in a 5-2 loss against Jackson County Central’s senior Darick Vancura (who was also last year’s Class A 160 weight class champion).

Anderson said he was very thankful for his support network throughout his wrestling season including his parents and the Fillmore Central, Lanesboro, and Mabel-Canton communities. When he arrived at the state tournament he was told, “You have nothing to lose.” He lived by this theme throughout the entire duration of the tournament. On Sunday, March 3 a reception was held for Anderson in the Fillmore Central cafeteria where FCLMC’s head wrestling coach, Jim Love, formally congratulated Niko for a tremendous job and the team for a great year. Assistant Coach Joe Cullen commented on Niko’s success, “Niko is a great natural athlete… His success comes from many years of hard work, not just one weekend of wanting to do well. There are very few who can match his dedication to improving himself in the weight room.” When asked about his future goals for next year Niko responded, “To be a state champ after being runner up this year, and to reach my 100th win, I’m pretty close.” In fact, he has currently has 90 wins and finished the season with a 36-2 record. Note: The Chatfield wrestling team also had a very successful season. The team placed third overall in the Class A team state tournament. They also had three wrestlers place individually: Hank Friederichs placed third in 120A, Harvey Friederichs placed second in 132A, and Justin Viss placed fifth in 195A.

Sue’s Muse By Sue Ommen

Cars Two restored Mustangs, 60s era style, cruised past my window last summer, one red, one yellow, both music to my eyes. Mustangs can’t help but bring back thoughts of first cars and first loves. I met my older brother’s first car after he offered me a ride to the football game in high school. I was surprised, to say the least, as he had no car to my knowledge, nor my parents. He smoothly told them his friend Paul would pick us up at the bottom of the hill. However, there was no Paul, no car, but a trek across the

highway to a less traveled road, revealed a dilapidated pile of rust with four wheels. We pushed the bucket of bolts out of the weedy bushes they were hidden in, and Jerry instructed me to hop in and steer. He proceeded to push the car while running with it, and I popped the clutch until it kicked in. I was not sure if we’d arrive or even get home later, but we were on our way. I don’t know if my first car set my heart on fire, but there is certainly a special feeling for that first set of wheels. I had just finished college and my dad presented me with a set of keys for my graduation present.

I eagerly went outside, my heart pumping with anticipation, to meet Waltzing Matilda, as she was later dubbed. She certainly danced to her own tune, none of them the great rock ‘n roll of the 60s, but more a 2-step. She was used, with a sturdy, boxy body, a car my dad thought practical and safe for his little girl. However, she came with a quirky set of options all her own. Out on the road on a sunny day, her windshield wipers would suddenly switch back and forth, forcing me to peer between sweeps. When rainy pellets pounded the windshield, the wipers alternately slowed almost to a standstill and then sped up frenetically. Instead of the racy red exterior I had envisioned for my first ride, Matilda was a funny dark maroon, paint that streaked onto my sleeve when I brushed up against it. We had a love-hate relationship, as she got me where I wanted to go, but often with a little heart-

ache thrown in. My mother did not learn to drive until in her 40s, and for her efforts my father presented her with a slightly used 1967 Mustang. Be still my heart! She was beautiful; a lovely shade of baby blue, but unfortunately, the keys never seemed to make it into my hands. Eventually, my older brother gained possession of her with some slick moves, and a short time later crashed her. In college, I met the steed

of my dreams, a 1966 Navy blue Mustang, and later married him. I had to break the sad news to Waltzing Matilda, that though we’d had some swell times together, she was not the object of my affections any longer. We still traveled along life’s path together for a while, but eventually I watched Matilda waltz away to that great used car pile in the sky.

11 killed in 10 days on Minnesota Roads First pedestrian death of 2013 reported ST. PAUL, MN - At least 11 people were killed in the past 10 days on Minnesota roads, according to preliminary traffic crash reports submitted to the Minnesota Department of Public Safety (DPS) Office of Traffic Safety. To-date for the year there have been 47 traffic deaths, down from 57 at this time last year. Among those killed since Sunday, Feb. 24, was the first pedestrian death of the year and two 16 year olds. Seven of the 11 killed were ages 27 and younger. First pedestrian death of 2013 The year’s first pedestrian death was a 20-year-old male, who was struck on Saturday, March 2, in Pine County. There were 39 pedestrian deaths in 2012 and 40 in 2011. DPS reports pedestrian deaths remain steady over the years, showing no trends of decline.

Officials remind motorists to drive attentively and to scan for pedestrians. Motorists must stop for those crossing at both marked and unmarked crosswalks. Pedestrians are reminded to make eye contact with drivers to show intent to cross, cross with caution, and continue to look for traffic during the cross -as distracted drivers are not likely looking for pedestrians. Two teens killed, one seriously injured In response to the two teen deaths and another seriously injured, DPS last week called on the support of Minnesota high schools to reinforce safe driving decisions. Traffic crashes are the leading killer of teens due to inexperience, risk-taking, distractions and poor seat belt compliance. DPS and the Minnesota Safety Council provided turnkey resources to help schools pro-

AustrAlIAN shepherd/CollIe mIx I am a very loyal young man. I am looking for a playful canine partner who likes to play tug-a-war, wrestle, and snuggle up to when we get wore out. I have no preference of male over female because I like everybody. I would like a companion who likes to lay and chew on a bone once in a while, and not try and steal mine. I don’t have any aggression in me, but want everyone to be my friend. I love to play ball and need something to keep me busy. I’ve always wanted to try agility classes as I know I would be really good at this. I am very intelligent and learn easy.

Commonweal Theatre Apprentice Company presents Miss Julie LANESBORO, MINN. —The Commonweal Theatre Company proudly presents the capstone production of the 2013 Apprentice Company, Miss Julie by August Strindberg, in a new translation by Ethan Bjelland.

pursuit of their dreams, the two vie for control and become entangled in a cycle of love and lust, domination and subservience that may ultimately be their downfall. Commonweal Resident Ensemble Member Scott Dixon will direct; previous Commonweal directorial credits for Mr. Dixon include last season’s A Christmas Carol, Ice Maidens (2008), and An Enemy of the People (2011). “Miss Julie is a passionate story about passionate people who cross the line one summer night and find their world has completely changed,” says Dixon. “Now they must decide whether to go further into this new world with all its new hopes and new

Laura Broadwater promoted to Assistant Vice President

ST. CHARLES, Minn. – Laura Broadwater has been promoted to Commercial/Ag Banker and Assistant Vice President at Merchants Bank in St. Charles, according to Jim Allen, President of Merchants Bank in St. Charles. “Laura is a very smart banker, and she has excellent personal skills, which her customers appreciate,” Allen said. “I know her customers enjoy working with her because she truly cares about their outcome.” Broadwater grew up on a dairy farm in southern Fillmore County.

The Lanesboro Barn Dance starts it’s 19th season The Lanesboro Barn Dance will hold its first dance of the 2013 series on Saturday, March 23, at the Sons of Norway Hall in Lanesboro, MN. Starting time is 8:00 PM and admission is $7.00 at the door. Guest fiddler Tim Foss from Soldiers Grove, WI will join regulars Bob Bovee and Gail Heil for a rollicking evening of traditional square dances, big circles, waltzes, polkas and schottisches. Heil will be teaching and calling the organized dances with Bovee on guitar and harmonica and Foss on fiddle providing the music. Although it’s good to know right from left before you come, no other knowledge or experience is required. All organized dances are taught and you don’t need to bring a partner. This is like the old-fashioned barn dances that were once the mainstay of entertainment in this part of the country. Just come prepared to have a good time. This event is presented in cooperation with the southeastern Minnesota Arts Council through funding from the Minnesota State Legislature. For more information, call 507-498-5452 or check the website: www.boveeheil.com

She began her career as a business banker in St. Charles in 2009. “I look forward to helping customers continue to obtain loans that enable them to meet their financial goals,” Broadwater said. “Banking can be intimidating, so I strive to make it as easy as possible to understand. For instance, I help customers and potential customers to understand their financial statements, so they know exactly what options are most viable.” Merchants Bank has $1.28

FILLMORE COUNTY JOURNAL

Root River Citizen Conversations at six local events Join Root River watershed neighbors at six local events scheduled in March and April throughout the watershed to engage in respectful, citizen-led conversations about this place we all value. Information about the watershed and the river will be shared. We’ll ask for your insights about how to live and work in the watershed while protecting water quality now and for future generations. You’ll have time to share your experiences, hopes and visions, and we’ll explore together what we can do to protect the river and the drinking water aquifers. We hope to see people from town and country; members of 4-H, FFA, scouts, church and school groups; farmers; business owners; artists; public employees; landowners; hunters, cyclists, canoers, and fishers. The events include a free meal or snacks and door prizes featuring local businesses and products.

Interactive activities will allow everyone to participate in providing information for a Root River watershed plan. The events are funded by a grant from Meadowlark Institute, which receives funding from InCommons. Other support for Root River watershed citizen engagement comes from Minnesota’s Clean Water Land and Legacy Amendment.

The FCJ reaches over 12,000 household each week.

Mabel Food Shelf tours Channel One Several members of the Mabel Area Food Shelf Committee recently toured and volunteered at Channel One in Rochester. The Channel One Regional Food Bank receives surplus food from the food industry and distributes it through a network of member agencies in a fourteen county service area in Southeast Minnesota and Western Wisconsin. The Mabel Area Food Shelf is one of the member agencies who helped to distribute over eight million pounds of food during the past year. As a member agency, they can order food from a list of available items to supplement the local food donations. There is usually a fee for these items to

cover the cost of handling and delivery. The tour allowed the committee members to see the amazing amount of organization required to sort the food donations received and prepare them for delivery to the proper sites. Their volunteer efforts resulted in labels being affixed to approximately 1500 cans of food so they could be placed on the shelves for distribution. The Mabel Area Food Shelf has been blessed with generous donations, some monetary and some food, personal hygiene items and paper products. It has seen increased use, especially in recent months. Donations are always needed and grate-

fully accepted. They look forward to extra donations during the month of March as that is Food Share Month. Food Share Month is a time when donations are actively solicited and recorded. Some companies offer matching grants to the area food shelves based on the comparative amount of money and food received that month. As a result, donations received during March result in additional resources that can be used to serve area patrons. The committee is looking forward to seeing results of special efforts made by local individuals and organizations during March to support this worthwhile program.

Winter Rye Field Day March 16 in SEPlease Minnesota do not bill for

HARMONY, Minn. -- What to do with winter rye as the planting season approaches is the topic of a short field day Saturday, March 16, from 10:30 a.m. to noon, at the hog farm of Travis Willford southeast of Harmony. The event is free, though an RSVP is appreciated to guarantee coffee and a roll: contact Caroline van Schaik at 507-523-3366 or caroline@ landstewardshipproject.org. Willford’s farm is located at 33568 County 30 at the southern edge of Fillmore County.

Willford, a member of the Fillmore County Soil and Water Resources District Board of Directors, will talk about his use of winter rye as a cover crop planted after soybeans and prior to corn. This is his second year working with a cover crop. Participants will take a look at the rye in the field, and hear how it can be killed under tillage and no-till conditions, with and without the use of chemicals. Other topics to be addressed include the relation between cover

Commerce Commissioner reminds consumers to protect themselves from identity theft SAINT PAUL, MN – As part of National Consumer Protection Week, the Minnesota Department of Commerce warns consumers to protect themselves against identity theft. Minnesotans who suspect they might be victims of identity theft should act quickly to minimize the damage to their credit reports and lessen financial losses. “Identity theft can happen to anyone and can have devastating financial results,” said Commerce Commissioner Mike Rothman. “The threat can come from hightech skimmers that capture your credit card information to scammers who dumpster-dive for your personal information. Fortunately, Minnesotans can protect their information and financial wellbeing.” Here are important steps consumers should take to monitor and protect themselves from identity theft crimes: •Before revealing personal information, find out how it will be used. Ask whether it will be shared with other companies.

Many businesses will provide you with their “privacy policy.” •Never give personal information over the phone or email. Most businesses that need bank account information, passwords or credit card numbers already have all the information they need and will not call or email a request for more information. •Check your credit report once a year. Credit reports show your credit history, including the number of loan requests and whether it’s for credit cards, auto loans or mortgages. Make sure the report is accurate, and write a letter noting any mistakes. •There are three major credit bureaus that provide credit reports for a nominal fee, and there may be variations in each report: Equifax, 800-685-1111, Experian, 888-EXPERIAN, and Trans Union, 800-916-8800. •Pay attention to billing cycles. Follow up with creditors if bills don’t arrive on time. •Take your receipts. If a store payment is made by credit card, some receipts list the full card

number. Do not dispose of the receipt in a public place •Have new checks delivered to the bank. •Use passwords whenever possible. Avoid using passwords that contain easily available information like your mother’s maiden name, your birth date or the last four digits of your Social Security Number. Use a different password for each account. Do not store written passwords in purses or wallets where credit cards are kept. •Minimize the amount of personal information you carry. Do not store Social Security cards, passports or birth certificates in purses or wallets. •Write down credit card names and numbers and store them in a safe place. It’s important to cancel your credit cards immediately if they’ve been stolen. •Guard the mailbox from theft. •Tear up junk mail. If you receive pre-screened credit card or mortgage offers in the mail, tear them up if you decide not to accept the offer. In a method called “dumpster diving,” thieves scour trash bins for personal information.

•Reduce the amount of junk mail you receive. To opt out of receiving pre-screened credit card offers, call: 1-888-5-OPTOUT (1-888-567- 8688). •Only use secure internet sites for e-commerce. Look for a small yellow “padlock” in the toolbar and “https” in the web address. •It is important to simply know who you are dealing with. Do not give out personal information over the phone, through the mail or over the Internet unless you have initiated the contact How to recover your identity: After identity theft occurs, it is critical to document all conversations and correspondence with the companies and agencies helping to reestablish your personal information. Steps to repair your personal information may vary depending on what crime occurred, but in most cases there are a few basic steps to take: •Contact the fraud departments of the three major credit bureaus. Tell them that you’re an identity theft victim, and request a “fraud alert” on your file. Ask creditors to call you before approving any new accounts or changing your existing accounts.

Duane Benson to keynote the Preston Area Community Foundation Banquet The Preston Area Community Foundation announces Duane Benson as the featured speaker for their Annual Banquet.

•Ask the bureaus for a copy of your credit report, which is usually free if the report is inaccurate due to fraud. Check the area that lists “inquiries,” and if loan or credit requests appear that you did not make, ask that those inquiries be removed. Order new reports in a few months to be sure that the information was removed, because it can negatively affect your credit score. •Contact the credit card companies for any accounts that have been tampered with or opened fraudulently. Speak with someone in the security or fraud department of each creditor, and also notify them with a letter. Immediately close accounts that have been tampered with and open new accounts with new PINs and passwords. •File a report with your local police or the police in the community where the identity theft took place. Be sure to obtain a copy of the police report in case the bank, credit card company or others need proof of the crime. Even if the police can’t find the identity thief, having a copy of the police report will be helpful when dealing with creditors.

Recycling 101 By LaVerne C. Paulson, Recycling Education Coordinator How many times have you stood on the bank of the Root River amazed at the clarity of the water and the occasional flash of a fish as it feeds on LaVerne larvae and Paulson other tasty morsels in the water? Each year thousands of visitors come to Bluff Country to admire the beauty of the rugged bluffs and the pristine streams and experience this beauty first hand. Now and then, one may encounter a small whirlpool in the stream, spinning lazily on the edge of the current. There are usually a few leaves, a hapless bug, or a small stick or two caught up in the eddy. Such is the beauty of nature. We can also see other items in the eddy. Perhaps a plastic bottle, an aluminum can, or

maybe a styrofoam bait container. These do not belong in the water and certainly do not add to the beauty of the stream. There is garbage, perhaps not a whole lot, but there is some garbage in the Root River. It doesn’t stay around long. Sooner or later, it will escape the eddy and make its way down stream to be caught in another whirlpool, escape again, and eventually reach the Mississippi River. Some of it will even find its way to the Gulf of Mexico and won’t bother us anymore. A lot of the following information was supplied by Wikipedia and National Geographic. There are many large cities on or near the western coast of North America. Way too much plastic finds its way to the streets of these cities, and during a heavy rainstorm, enters the storm sewers and then travels out to sea. Living here in the Midwest, the Pacific Ocean may not seem to be a concern to many of us, but I thought you may find this a bit interesting, if not a little disturbing. The Pacific Ocean is like a large

RCF approves four grants totaling $5,180 for projects Four grants totaling up to $5,180 were approved for a variety of community projects at the Rushford Community Foundation (RCF) Board of Directors meeting on February 8. A $1,480 grant will go to the Rushford Area Chamber of Commerce’s Community Lighted Christmas Tree Fund. The RCF joins a host of area business donors in supporting this project, which has upgraded the bluff-top tree with LED lights to reduce costs and has created a more efficient and safer way to make future repairs. With RCF’s grant, the project reaches its fundraising goal and the greater community will enjoy this prominent Rushford

holiday symbol for many years to come. A grant in the amount of $150 was approved for the Semcac Retired & Senior Volunteer Program’s substance abuse prevention initiative with 8th graders at R-P Middle School. The program involves monthly discussions with people who have experienced first-hand the effects of drug or alcohol abuse. Volunteer speakers have included probation officers, law enforcement, and individuals or families that share their personal stories. The program’s intended outcome is to help young people understand the impacts of their decisions and make posi-

Monday, March 11, 2013 Root River... a very large Root River. It is always moving, and it has extremely large whirlpools known as gyres that trap and hold tons and tons of floating chemical sludge, plastic debris, and other waste that finds its way to the ocean. The Giant Pacific Garbage Patch, located approximately a thousand miles off the California coast has been estimated to be at least the size of Texas and seems to be growing each year. That is certainly one large floating island of trash just spinning around out there somewhere. It is a swirling mass made up mostly of plastics that threaten the delicate ocean ecosystem. Plastic buried in a landfill breaks down slowly in the absence of light. Out in the ocean, sunlight striking the water breaks plastic down into small pieces quite quickly. These particles either float on the surface or are suspended out of sight. Numerous sea animals see the bits of plastic as food and eat them, clogging their digestive systems, usually resulting in death. If these small animals are eaten by larger tive choices. The RCF grant will allow the project to offer awards for the top essays written by the 8th grade participants this spring. The RCF has granted the City of Rushford, in partnership with the R-P School District, up to $3,000 towards the process to apply for a planning grant from the MN Department of Transportation (Mn/DOT) Safe Routes to School Program. If the planning grant is awarded, Mn/DOT would contract with a planning company to develop— with significant public involvement and input—a comprehensive, community-wide plan for the creation of safe biking and walking routes to schools. These new routes would improve student safety, potentially reduce transportation costs, and increase recreational opportunities for the entire community. Lastly, the Foundation for R-P Schools will receive a $500 grant for the development of its website. The Foundation for R-P Schools was organized within the past year and is under the umbrella of the Southern MN Initiative Foundation and the RCF. Once firmly established, the Foundation for R-P Schools intends to return the granted funds to the RCF. The new website will inform parents, students, alumni, and area residents about the Foundation for R-P Schools’ efforts to raise money to establish and administer scholarship funds. The RCF Board of Directors meets quarterly and considers proposals for projects or programs that fit the foundation’s grantmaking priorities. The community foundation is made possible by the past, current and future financial gifts from individuals, organizations and businesses.

animals, the plastic is ingested by them and causes even more complications. Albatross have been known to inadvertently feed their young bottle caps and other pieces of plastic that cause certain death to the bird. Other sea dwelling birds, mammals, and fish can be trapped, cut, drowned, or become entangled in plastic bags, garbage bags, or other debris. The plastic bottle, aluminum can, and styrofoam container floating in the Root River, will not be joining the Giant Pacific Garbage Patch, but there is a chance that one of them will find its way to a relatively large body of water, and cause problems there or somewhere along the way. Or...perhaps an ecological angler or caring canoeist will rescue the three travelers and deliver them to where they really belong, helping make the

Between five hundred billion and a trillion plastic grocery bags are used world wide each year. The first ones were produced in the 1960s, but didn’t become common in grocery stores until 1982. 1,000,000,000,000 bags a year gives you a couple billion more reasons to join the “Bag Brigade” of Fillmore County and just say “no thanks” to paper and plastic.

House Health Insurance Exchange Bill is not one that small business wants ST. PAUL, MN - Despite the fact that the advocates of House File 5 keep claiming that they are passing the bill to help small business, the state’s major smallbusiness group, the National Federation of Independent Business Minnesota, with more than 13,000 members statewide, is opposed to several provisions in this bill and is concerned about the fact that it is going to increase cost on small employers and individuals. “We hope House members will realize that the new 3.5

percent assessment on small employer and individual health premiums is a mistake,” said NFIB/Minnesota State Director Mike Hickey. “This 3.5 percent increase comes on top of a 2.8 percent increase and will bring total new assessments under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) to 6.3 percent. This is coming on top of very large increases for some small groups and individuals due to the underwriting reforms imposed on the 50-state insurance markets by the federal act.” Hickey noted that the only actuarial analysis done to date, by Gruber Gorman, is estimated average individual market increases of 29 percent with high increases of 42 percent, and in the small group market, increases ranging as high as 28.5 percent, but decreases for some groups (older, sicker) that will range to a 22 percent decrease. “The last thing small business needs is for the state to raise their health insurance premium 3.5 percent for an exchange that the vast majority of small businesses are not going to utilize,” said Hickey. Hickey also noted that NFIB

is opposed to the active purchaser provision in the bill despite its revision. For one year the exchange board will have to accept all insurers that meet stated criteria, but in the second year, they could arbitrarily reject insurers for any reason, and NFIB fears this could really limit choice for people who are in the exchange. NFIB is also opposed to the conflict-of-interest provision, which bars any person who is currently employed in the insurance industry or related industries or recently retired from serving on the board. The restrictive language under the law states that you have to have been separated from employment in insurance or a related industry for one year. “We need people on the exchange board who understand insurance and are going to make the right decisions, not a lot of people who have no background at all in this complicated industry.” Hickey also noted that small business supports more accountability for the exchange and for extending the normal rule-making process to the exchange, so that they can better inform citizens and

people who work in this industry regarding actions they may be taking. “Finally, we question the enormous cost of the exchange at an estimated $165 million. That is extremely expensive to set up

a web portal to assist people in purchasing health insurance and administer the subsidies of the ACA. The Legislature should take a second and third look at this large cost and reduce it,” said Hickey.
