“Joining Julie” during her presentation in Harmony By Barb Jeffers barb@fillmorecountyjournal.com

Julie Kramer holds her latest book Shunning Sarah and an Amish doll which she purchased while doing research for the book. Photo by Barb Jeffers

It is no mystery why a group of more than forty people attended a book-signing event and presentation by author Julie Kramer at the Harmony Public Library in Harmony, Minn. on Saturday, April 6, 2013. Kramer started her presentation by stating she was excited to be in Harmony… “the scene of the crime,” which drew a large chuckle from the crowd. Julie Kramer’s latest book, titled Shunning Sarah, has ties to the area which makes it especially interesting for local readers. In Shunning Sarah a homicide is being investigated by TV reporter Riley Spartz and it is discovered that the murdered woman was a member of the local Amish community. The police have a hard time investigating the woman’s death as the Amish community prefer to handle their problems within

their community and prefer to keep things private. Julie grew up on the Minnesota-Iowa state line where she had some experience with the Amish and their way of life. She did research for her book by visiting many Amish farms in the area and talked with the Amish while purchasing their wares including baskets, potholders, cashew crunch, and also an Amish doll which she uses as a prop while speaking to audiences. Julie stayed at the Amish Bed and Breakfast to get a sense of living the way the Amish live. Julie mentions the Fillmore County area in Shunning Sarah specifically naming the Village Square and Quarter/quarter of Harmony. In the acknowledgements of the book she also mentions Richard Scrabeck of the Amish Tours of Harmony and the Amish Bed and Breakfast near Canton, Minn. Julie states that she enjoys the research she does for her writing say-

ing “when you are writing books you always want to have a new adventure” which can give the writer a new perspective to draw from when writing. She says she “gets inspiration from all sorts of places” and stated she is “highly influenced by happenings around me” which can be used in her writing as well. Julie had a “new adventure” while staying at the Asahi Loft of Harmony during her visit and thanked owner Cindy Ofstedal for the hospitality. Julie Kramer said she moved “from journalist to author” having once worked as a freelance news producer to NBC and CBS and also ran the WCCO-TV I-Team in Minneapolis, Minn. where she received many national investigative awards. Since stepping into the role of author Julie has continued to receive accolades for her work including the Minnesota Book Award, the See JOINING JULIE Page 13 

Our closing was March 29,” she says. “It was an exciting whirlwind and the speed at which it happened really confirmed that the decision to sell and who was buying was right. It is truly fortunate that a friend purchased the store. Knowing the person who was buying the store I put so much work into making is someone of integrity is comforting,” she adds. For the new buyers, two enthusiastic and strong women, a business is something they’ve looked at for many years. “We pretty much always wanted to

do a business. We talk by phone every morning and have been brainstorming ideas for years,” notes Wenzel. “We even have a folder called ‘brilliant ideas for the future’ where we have kept invention and business ideas,” she laughs. Until now, there just didn’t seem to be the right time or the right opportunity for the duo. Life kept happening; school for Amanda, babies for Audrey. The timing just wasn’t right.

owners, their family is very close and involved. “No matter what we have decided to do in our lives, we always know our family is there to support us and help us. Buying a business is

a big step, but it is less scary when you know your whole family is behind you,” adds Wenzel. “One of the first things we did after deciding to buy the store was to plan how we would announce it to the family and to prepare a list of things that they could help with because we knew everyone would want to help us jumpstart the business. We come from a family of very strong, independent, and creative women who has jumped right in to support us as a small women-owned business from generating ideas, to building custom shelving, painting, and storing inventory in their living room to helping take care of the kids while we build up the business.” “Our mom, Brenda Ziebell and our grandma, Joyce Finley, have always shown us that we can do anything we put our minds to. These amazing women have always encouraged us to dream big and then go after those dreams. They paved the way for us to have the courage and belief that we can do this,” she contin-

C ommentary Not the school you remember By Eric Leitzen There’s something making the rounds out there on them there interwebs: it’s a resignation letter from a teacher of nearly thirty years. In it, the teacher says a “long train of failures” in decisions not by his school, but by a larger educational body that has Eric Leitzen lead him to conclude that his profession, in his words “has left me” and that “It no longer exists.” He’s speaking to something in the educational world that is called the Common Core Approach and the STEM Movement, and it is the belief of this now viral resigning teacher that these ideas have switched our thoughts on education from one that used to be based on the process of learning to one that is now based solely on the results of tests. As an educator myself, these are issues that come up often in our little part of the world, and the issue has begun a sort of Jets/ Sharks divide between proponents and detractors.

Speaking of Jets and Sharks… I have decided that twenty years is long enough to let a frustration fester, and though I will continue to support Canadian hockey teams on principal, I will be considering myself a fan of the Minnesota Wild from here on out. Now back to your regularly scheduled rambling. Now, STEM is a simple acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math; as you can probably assume, this movement centers around the focused education in these four subjects. As we are becoming a more technological society and we seem to be having some lack of skilled engineering and labor, this idea seems only natural. The Common Core Standards is an initiative that tries to unite the requirements of several different state education systems under a system of standard-based, mandatory testing. It’s an attempt to make sure that a child in Vermont is getting the same basic ideas in education as a child in Oregon. Once again, on the surface this isn’t a bad idea: Japan has nationalized curricula and they are consistently a very high performing country when it comes to education. So why

Letter about Erding commentary To the Editor, Your article is right on Jeff; too bad that Yvonne didn’t do a little history reading before she wrote. Her opinions on history and gun control are not factual. Yes, Hitler & Stalin were dictators but what made them Dictators? Hitler, known as the polish corporal was a nobody until he promised a chicken in every pot; a car in every garage. This sounded good to a starving nation. (Does this sound familiar?) And then when elected,

all the frustration and blowback? There’s two main arguments against this new education movement: one, it cuts down on the freedom to be creative and/or deviate from a prescribed course or curriculum, which teachers find understandably confining. As a substitute teacher, I’m often stuck with a list of things to get through with my students for that day, whether they like it or not (here’s a hint: they don’t) and sometimes the natural movement of the class, even if it’s for the better, has to be wrangled back onto what is written down for the day. I mean, you don’t want to be known as that sub who doesn’t listen to the plans he’s been given, do you? That means teachers will think you don’t like their ideas, which won’t want you to fill in, which means you won’t get hired, which means you’re back to selling hot dogs in Siberia to make ends meet. It can certainly seem like a rockand-a-hard-place situation when your students want to discuss String Theory and the very makeup of the universe since time began… and they’re supposed to be answering question 3. True story. Secondly, teachers find it frus-

trating because it tends to crush the more classically “liberal arts” style of classes and the teaching of them. You can be a modernday Socrates, asking students what they think and how they feel about the ethical implications of Hiroshima or Nagasaki when everything comes down to answering questions on a test or focusing instead on the science or engineering of the bombs. We drop bomb, it end war, fill in bubble C, got it? Just recently, a group of 35 teachers and administrators in the Georgia area were arrested on the suspicion of cheating to get their students scores on standardized test flying high. Good test scores means no threat of funding cuts or government intervention, which often leads to desperate times and more desperate measures. All of this seems to fly directly in the face of the high-minded ideals that most people get into teaching for: the pure essence of education, the beautiful dance and drama of critical thinking, the Lord-ofthe-Rings-style quest to instill not only facts and figures, but a lifelong love of learning into what will be the next generation of elites. There’s no time for that in this rush-rush world, so says the new movements, they are

here to learn and they only need the important stuff, case closed. Now, as a good Moderator, I can see both sides of the story. I’ve been in some classes where I loathed the final bell every day, because it meant I would have to stop pumping some of these students so full of knowledge and the desire to learn and all that other ephemeral, teacher-y stuff. In other classes, I found myself looking to the clock in the hopes it would make time go faster. Yes, teachers pray for the bell sometimes, too… especially when it’s clear that nobody in the classroom wants what you’re selling. In my next column, I’ll go ahead and look at how we can turn our education system around and once again make it the envy of the world while still managing to satisfy both those who see hard Math and Science as the way forward, and those who believe there is still merit in the classical forms of education. In fact, it’s perfect that I’m writing this to Fillmore County at large, because in my opinion this country could serve as the perfect crucible in which to test a new style of American education.

confiscated all of the firearms of the German people and ran over them with an army tank. Can you see how a dictator was born? Are we opening the door to something like this in our country? Looking at our current Government and going back to 2008 & 2012 with all of the elections promises and pure BS, and nothing but accusations of previous administrations. Not taking any fault for their own failures. Now they want to take away the firearms of the people. (History repeating itself!)

What would our country be like if our populist would not have had their own firearms when the British were forcing us almost into slavery with taxes and laws to cripple this great nation? If we yield our 2nd amendment rights; watch out as the rest of our constitution will soon follow, including the freedom of speech. The only thing our Government has accomplished lately is more spending, raising taxes, raising their own wages, and putting us deeper into debt. I have to live within my income. Do you? Read why Jefferson and

others insisted on adding this amendment to our constitution. OH! That is History! An armed nation will keep our Government honest. Some people make a lot of noise without knowing the history of which they are writing. A concerned citizen; Rod Skare Spring Valley, MN

tion. Now let’s look at some of the particulars in his anti-gun regulation screed. Mr. Erding says he reveres the entire constitution. Well, maybe not so much the first right, the right to life. The second amendment supercedes that. It supercedes everything, according to Erding. Nancy Lanza’s right to own a semi-automatic rifle capable of a magazine of up to 100 rounds was more important than the right to life of those innocent twenty darling babies in Newtown, CT. and their brave four teachers who were martyred for standing up to her demon possessed son Adam Lanza and his right to possess said weaponry. The right to life is the first right, Mr. Erding. He goes on to say

only law abiding citizens will honor the background checks. Mrs. Lanza was a law abiding citizen. So were her snakes in the head son. So was the mass killer in Aurora, CO, Oak Creek, Phoenix AZ, VA tech, and places too many to mention. Erding goes on to make his ultimate argument: (I’ll avoid using his capital letters, a literary devise of screaming at your reader) “Registration means confiscation!” Odd Mr. Erding. I have no such fear. I own pistols, rifles, antique arms, shotguns,and one air rifle. I also do not fear my goverenment, which may be the unspoken baseless fear of Mr. Erding. I’ll agree with Erding that the vast majority of murders are not committed with an assault rifle; but all the massacres, mass killings, employ a high capacity magazine assault rifle or pistol. They are good for only one thing-mayhem! Ninety percent of the American people support background checks. The majority of gun owners like myself support bacxkground checks. The political fight is moot, over. The American people want a vote! The little kids at Newtown deserve a vote, the survivors of the Aurora slaughter deserve a vote. Gabby Giffords and her husband Mark deserve a vote. Question is, are our learned gutless salons in Washington capable of being shamed into allowing a vote?

Maxine Elaine “Maggie” Bren Johnson We share in the celebration of the life of Maxine “Maggie” Johnson of Chatfield, Minnesota, who passed in peace on April 4, 2013. Maggie was born on December 20, 1940, in South Dakota and lived there until she was swept off her feet by the handsome Merlyn (Johnny) Johnson. In 1959 at the age of 18, she left her mother and four brothers in South Dakota and was off to a new life as a married woman. After going to business school, she followed Johnny’s Air Force career to Tacoma, Washington, Reno, Nevada, and then to New Prague, Minnesota, with two boys in tow (Brad, Scott) and a girl (Tammy) on the way. After a few years there, they left to settle in Chatfield where the third boy (Cory) joined the family. She lived a life of a wonderful mother and independent working mom, who taught her children good moral values and how to sit still in church. She raised those children while working full-time at Twin Valley Ag. Association and still finding time for her fun with bowling league, ladies’ night golf, and going out with friends. She gave her kids many hugs, much love, and enough independence to See OBITUARIES Page 11 

Notice of fiLLMoRe coUNtY DeLiNQUeNt tAXeS

In District Court

County of Fillmore Third Judicial District Court File 23-CV-13-123 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 May 6, 2013, 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 13, 2013, 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 13, 2018. Taxes must also be paid by May 13, 2018, 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 13, 2016, 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. ATTWOOD DISTRICT COURT ADMINISTRATOR FILLMORE COUNTY, MINNESOTA DATE: February 07, 2013 Names of Owners, Taxpayers, & Interested Parties

congratulate them in their adventures and support them when life was tough. She definitely deserved and received the highest respect from her children. Just as she and Johnny were reaching their golden years and enjoying their first three grandchildren, Maggie suffered a medical trauma and began her life as a resident of Chosen Valley Care Center in Chatfield. Her dedicated husband, Johnny, passed away from cancer shortly thereafter. During the next sixteen years at the care center, she became a member of a second family that gave her the loving care she needed and, for that, her family is eternally grateful. We also want to thank all of mom’s friends who took the time to visit her at the care center and bring a smile to her face. She is survived by her sons Brad (Kim) Johnson and Cory (Nichole) Johnson both of Spirit Lake, IA; daughter, Tammy (Chad) Danielson of Fountain, MN; brothers Bob (Sue) Bren, Chad (Vicki) Bren, and sister-in-law Janice Bren, all of Goodwin, SD; nine grandchildren; three great-grandchildren; and a daughter-in-law who was very dear to her, Faye Johnson of Chatfield. Maggie’s loved ones who beat her in the race to heaven were: her husband Johnny, son Scott, father Oscar, mother Maizie, and brothers Coye and Oscar “Jr.”(wife, Connie who passed March 2013). Another heartfelt thank you goes to the Riley Funeral Home of Chatfield for transporting Maggie to her final resting place in Goodwin, South Dakota. The funeral service will be held on April 15th at 12:30 p.m. at St. Peter’s Evangelical Lutheran Church in Goodwin, South Dakota.

JOINING JULIE Continued from Page 1

Daphne du Maurier Award for Mainstream Mystery/Suspense and the RT Book Review’s Best First Mystery. Julie is also a finalist for several other award presentations. Shunning Sarah is Julie Kramer’s fifth book in a series of thrillers which are all set in Minnesota. The titles of her books have all been verb-name titles: Killing Kate, Silencing Sam, Stalking Susan, and Missing Mark; all written before Shunning Sarah, her most recently published book. This had the crowd wondering what the title of her next book will be. According to Julie “the next book is done and the title is being decided on” and

while taking several questions from the audience about her new book she did not give up too much information except that one of the main characters is currently named “Jack” but emphasized that the name could very well be changed. Julie talked about how publishing has changed over the years with technology and social media, saying that “writers need to think of themselves as small business persons, not artists, these days” with promotion and sales happening over the internet with items such as e-books. There are many ways to try to get a book published from acquiring an agent, who will receive a percent of the profit, to the other side of the spectrum of self-publishing books.

Monday, April 15, 2013 Julie Kramer took time to sign books and talk with people before and after her interesting presentation. When attendees purchased Kramer’s set of five books in paperback the set was cleverly tied together with yellow “crime scene” tape which would make a great gift for those who love to read investigative crime stories. She also donated a set of her books to the Harmony Arts Board and the Harmony Public Library who together brought Julie to speak. The audience had a variety of questions for Julie Kramer who answered them openly and humorously. Ironically, as the program was taking place, an Amish buggy strolled by which seemed very fitting considering the topic at hand.

Rushford cancels City Hall project, for now By Kirsten Zoellner At least for the time being, Rushford’s city hall will remain at its present location. Plans to convert the former municipal liquor store into new city hall have stalled more than once due to cost and funding. The council voted unanimously at the April 8 meeting to reject all bids for the project, cancel the project, and leave city hall in place while other courses of action are determined. Capped at $200,000, the project has been a hotly debated item with some contending the city is spending money frivolously and others angry that the city denied the new library project last year, but proceeded with exploring renovating the “muni” and moving city hall. In a letter from City Administrator Steve Sarvi, it was noted that all bidders for the project came in under the maximum level, even with every additional alternative bid included. “The one thing I come away with is that I don’t think there’s a consensus solution that we’ve come to yet that makes sense to the whole community,” said councilor Vern Bunke who suggested awareness to the current debt level. “Going any further at this point doesn’t seem to make sense to me. I hold out hope that we can go in and do the project with a strong sense of value engineering and create a space if we need it. Until we have a stronger direction, that’s my feeling.” The council will revisit the issue at the first meeting in June to discuss funding sources, value engineering, and to determine further options. The council also debated the recent question of their methods in water and sewer rate structure, especially in how it applies to multiple household dwellings such as apartments and motels. In effort to

mitigate that issue, the city considered a proposal from MSA Professional Services for a study to evaluate the city’s current water and sewer utility rate structure at a cost of $3,500. The city noted that the study was not intended to dictate rates needed to fund projects, but rather a study of the structure itself. The city uses Residential Equivalent Units (REU) based on water consumption. The REU structure was put in place in 1996 and was intended to have users which put the most stress on the system, such as manufacturing, more accountable for wear and tear to the system. “The funds are recovering from a deficiency,” added Bunke. “We’re building cash reserves to pay for debt. Sarvi cautioned that changes to this structure could see a drastic effect. “With this rate structure, all our debt is based upon it. It might unravel the whole thing if we change the structure and have it affect our collections. It’s complex. We need to look at the future and see finance projections. We’re seeing progress in these funds due to the rates. We don’t want to jeopardize that by making a change and not understanding the full effect.” Postponing the study to roll it into another study, which will need to be conducted for the 2014 Highway 43 project, was considered as a cost-sharing opportunity. While this study could give the city a head start on that project, it would likely complicate the issue further if both issues are tackled at once. For now, the city will not proceed with the study now, but research the options, look at trends, and revisit the issue when MSA representative Bill Chang can present more information to the council.

In other news, the council listened to councilor Roger Colbenson’s proposal for public works employee record keeping and documentation regarding mowing of city property. The council was mostly in agreement over the keeping of detailed logs for tasks associated with equipment repair and maintenance, maintenance expenses, and mowing time. They were less in sync, however, over Colbenson’s request to PW employees “punch in” for the start and end of each day, along with before and after each break and lunch break. “You’re going to waste more time driving back and forth to punch a clock,” noted councilor Mark Honsey. “They’re big boys.” One of the time issues, according to Colbenson, stems from public rumor over public works employees taking extended breaks. Per union contract, they are entitled to two 15 minute breaks, typically one morning and one afternoon, and a 30 minute lunch break. Public works employees were on hand to address the issue and noted that there are instances when they do take a longer morning break. In these occasions, they lump both breaks into one morning break, skipping the afternoon break to maximize time efficiency in the latter part of the day. In the end, the council made no official motion on the proposal, instead offering it as discussion for the forthcoming record keeping. The next regularly scheduled council meeting is Monday, April 22, at 6:30pm, at city hall. The public is encouraged to attend.

Severe Weather Awareness Week, April 15-19, 2013 Fillmore County Severe Weather Awareness Week takes place April 15-19 this year, with the statewide tornado drills on Thursday, April 18th. Lessons learned from Fillmore County floods in recent years and the tornado near Granger and Harmony in May of 2011 is that Minnesota weather hazards can happen anytime and anywhere. The key to maintaining your personal safety and well-being is to be aware of the threats, be prepared, and know how to receive and respond to warnings. To help citizens achieve these goals, the Minnesota Department of Public Safety Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management, along with the National Weather Service sponsor Severe Weather Awareness Week annually. This year’s event takes place April 15-19, with Tornado Drill Day on Thursday, April 18th. Schools and businesses are encouraged to practice emergency plans during the statewide tornado drill at 1:45 p.m. on Thursday. A second drill at 6:55 p.m. will take place in most counties, including Fillmore County, to allow families and second-shift workers to practice sheltering plans. Find more lifesaving informa-

tion at www.severeweather.state. mn.us. Links to the American Red Cross, the Minnesota Safety Council, the National Weather Service and others provide learning materials — many of them downloadable for use in homes, businesses and classrooms. They also offer links for the information in several different non-English languages. The site also contains information on weather watches and warnings, thunderstorms, hail, lightning, flash floods, tornadoes and heat waves, along with instructions on how to make a survival kit, develop a plan to shelter or escape, and avoid surprises by staying informed of weather conditions. If you have not signed up to receive email notifications, go to the website and sign up today! Please remember the statewide tornado drill on Thursday, April 18th, too, and plan to participate at 1:45 p.m., 6:55 p.m. or both! Don’t let severe weather catch you unprepared! Get ready during Severe Weather Awareness Week! Contacts: Kevin Beck, Fillmore County Emergency Management Director, (507) 765-3874 Daryl Jensen, Sheriff, (507) 765-3874

the GPS equipment would not interfere. The council will take the information into consideration and tabled the discussion until more information is received from SEMA. The council members made a point to express that they need to support the local farmers and will look into the request further. Consent agenda items were approved including the Treasurer’s report, monthly city bills, and monthly Fire Department bills. City Maintenance reported an inventory on tools has been completed. Council approved the purchase of additional tools in the amount of two hundred dollars. Another agenda item which the council took action on was the need for concrete work on certain sidewalks in town, as well as a platform underneath the bleachers at the ball field. Motion carried to get bids for the concrete work. City Clerk agenda items included notice of a 2013 Safety and Loss Control Workshop that city employees Ronda Flattum and Dan Byers will be attending on April 16 as well as a MNWARN presentation that they will both attend on April 18. Ronda discussed the possibility of acquiring the services of David Drown Associates which sets up pay scales for cities. The council declined to take action on this agenda item. The personnel policy was approved. Police Chief Tom Mosher reported there has been a male

black dog loose around town. The owners have been identified and contacted. Officer Mosher assisted in a verbal domestic disturbance on March 14. On March 25 Officer Mosher took a six hour Use of Force training course. On March 27 he responded to a domestic disturbance in Wykoff and on the third of April he assisted an officer in Chatfield with a disturbed person. Also during the month of March Officer Mosher investigated a theft by check at a local business. In the Mayor’s report Richard Kujath discussed the lease agreement with AT&T. AT&T has requested to lower the amount they pay for rental space on the water tower from 1200 dollars per month to 1000 dollars per month with other options possibly available such as a two percent increase each year. The council unanimously agreed to leave the agreement the way it is. The council approved attaining blacktopping bids for several projects in town including the Frontier Communications property. A resident’s request to vacate a small section of Pine Street was declined and the council approved blacktopping the road and maintaining it. The contract with Ruskell Outdoor Services, Inc. was discussed and other bids will be attained to be sure the price is competitive. The City of Fountain donated two hundred dollars in support of the “Taste of the Trail” event which will be held in September of 2013. Meeting adjourned. The next meeting will be held May 2, 2013 at 7:30 p.m.

wonderful! It was nice and white and fluffy! First time my little brother saw Crisco he thought it was something else. I think whipped cream. I tried to tell him to get out of the Crisco can but he had grabbed a big tablespoon and dipped it into the Crisco before I could stop him. I told him he would be sorry but he just stuck his tongue out at me and shoved the entire tablespoon full of Crisco into his mouth! His eyes got big, his face turned red, he glared at me and then he ran to the waste basket and starting spitting. Bet he spit for 10 minutes! And then I think he started crying and blaming me! Mom finally gave him a couple of soda crackers to eat so he could get the taste out of his mouth. I remember looking at him with a big smile on my face saying “I told you so!” Made him cry all the more!! We fried a lot of chicken and fish and pork chops in that Crisco. Made a lot of cookies with Crisco too. Eventually we moved up to the cooking oils. They were much nicer as you just poured whatever amount you wanted into the pan and you didn’t have to wait for it to melt. And now today everyone uses “olive oil” - suppose to be the absolute healthiest choice for cooking and baking. I also think the price is a whole lot more than that one pound block of lard was!!

Local artist to have painting grace cover of TOSCA magazine ture a story about Joni and her work. This is the first magazine cover for Joni which is quite an honor. Joni began her life as an artist when her sister came home from first grade one day and had learned to paint profiles; she taught Joni and Joni never stopped painting. Joni describes her paintings as “representational landscapes and paintings of nature” and adds that she believes “our world offers so much beauty” and she shares that beauty with the world in her paintings. Joni Finnegan works in both

By Barb Jeffers Joni Finnegan, an artist who resides in rural Lanesboro, Minn., has had one of her paintings chosen to be on the cover of the Twin City Arts and Theatre Magazine, TOSCA, which is an acronym for Theatre, Opera, Shakespeare, Culture and Art. The title of the painting which will be on the cover of the magazine is “Garden Retreat” and features the beautiful setting of a peaceful getaway spot filled with flowers that look so realistic their scent seems to waft out of the frame and into the air. The TOSCA magazine will also fea-

oils and watercolors. She begins with a small sketch on paper and once she is satisfied with all of the elements such as lighting and color she moves on to canvas. Joni enjoys painting “en plein air”, which in essence means painting outdoors in the open air, when the weather cooperates Painting outdoors brings with it certain benefits and also some challenges. Joni explains when painting “en plein air” elements can change rapidly, and the artist is painting wet on wet, “so everything has to be deliberate” she says. Joni states that painting outdoors teaches an artist to “look behind the scene” and see the “excitement of the moment” and try to capture it. In addition, “en plein air” painting teaches the artist to pay attention to “movement and motion” in nature which is something that doesn’t happen in a studio. When Joni is unable to work outside due to weather conditions she can be found in her studio working from photographs taken locally and from her travels around the world. Traveling for art exhibits and shows among other reasons has taken Joni to places such as New Zealand, Argentina, Europe, and Ireland just to name a few. A few years ago Joni flew to Florence and

attended a workshop in Tuscany which resulted in many glorious works of art. According to her website, joanfinnegan.com, Joni’s painting of Tuscan Path won a Special Recognition Award in an international online art competition, Light Space and Time, which included artist submissions from 20 different countries. Additionally, her painting “Garden View” was chosen for the cover of a new novel entitled “In the Garden” which was published by William and Keats Publishing. When not in her studio painting, Joni stays busy with many other art-related activities including attending and teaching workshops. When teaching a workshop, Joni will critique the artists’ painting and work with them on different aspects which could be improved. Joni explains that she likes to “communicate with the artists” before the workshops to know what level they are at which helps her to prepare. Joni also gives private lessons for those who wish to take

their talent to the next level. She will also do commission work for those who have a special spot or view out their window they would like to capture forever. Currently Joni is getting ready for the Bluff Country Home Studio Art Tour which takes place the weekend of April 26-28, 2013. During the art tour artists open their studios to visitors. Joni’s studio is wheelchair accessible. The Art Tour is a chance for visitors to see the artists in their own studios and environment, and for those looking for that “one of a kind” painting, they will be able to view many more pieces than an artist can typically bring to an art show. Joni Finnegan says her most gratifying moments are when someone sees her art and “it speaks to them” which is easy to understand because her paintings invoke feelings which produce words within the heart of the viewer. For more information about Joni Finnegan and to view her paintings visit her website www. jonifinnegan.com. To schedule a visit to her studio phone (507) 272-0254.

City of Harmony donates to nursing home project By Jade Sexton Tim Samuelson, Administrator at Harmony Healthcare, approached the City Council at their regular meeting on April 8. He explained that he has had a dream for many years to be able to purchase a new power generator, as the current one is old and needs replacing, but they have not had the funds to do so. A new generator will cost $75,250. Recently, they received a donation from Murrell and Joyce Jacobson in the amount of $50,000 to go toward the purchase, so since then he has been trying to raise the rest of the money. He asked the city to donate $4,000 toward to new generator. He explained the new generator will enable the nursing home to continue to offer food, lights, power, heating, and air condition in the event of an emergency. They would also be able to hold more people from town, such as the residents at Heritage Grove or the other senior apartments in town. Stuart Morem spoke up on behalf of the nursing home, saying the donation is a huge deal, and he feels it’s a very important project. “It’s really a positive thing,” he said. “It will take care of the food and everything else for people who have nowhere else to go.” There was a question about other generators in town. The fire hall has a generator, as does the wastewater treatment plant, the bank, and the telephone office. Gerald Shuck made a motion to donate $10,000 from the electric fund. The motion passed. Audit Report Jason Boynton of Smith Schafer and Associates presented the council with the 2012 audit report. He went over the fund balances, revenues and expenditures for each fund, and gave a good report for Harmony, seeing nothing to be concerned about. The fire fund has a negative balance due to the purchase of a new fire truck, but the city already has plans and is working on building that balance back up. Local government aid (LGA) has remained the same since

2010. The general tax levy has made up 37 percent of total revenues. The general fund balance of $600,000. The unreserved general fund balance is 90 percent of expenditures, which is a good percentage to have. There is currently $497,241 in the Capital Projects fund. City Administrator Jerome Illg pointed out that the reason it is so high is because these numbers are as of December 31, 2012, and some of the money has been or will be spent on seal coating for the next four years, the new squad car, and an ambulance that is out for bid right now. Boynton saw no problems with the city’s debts, as they are being paid down in a timely manner. Recreational Vehicle Ordinance A committee has put together a new Recreational Vehicle ordinance that clearly outlines rules about driving golf carts and other vehicles on city streets. The previous policy was that people could drive to and from the golf course on a golf cart without a permit, but that has been difficult to enforce. The new policy requires anyone driving a cart to have a permit, and the person must be at least 15 years old or have an adult with them. Emily Ellis, Director of the Harmony Chamber of Commerce, asked if that policy would affect the 4th of July parade, when many people drive golf carts down the street. Deputy Jesse Grabau said a town celebration would be an exception. The permit fee is $10 per year, and the administrative penalty is $25. Chamber Request Emily Ellis, Director of the Harmony Chamber of Commerce, spoke to the council about removing a tree in the front of the Visitor’s Center. She explained the fir tree is very overgrown, and has to be trimmed on one side so people can use the sidewalk. They would like to have it removed and put up more signage to direct people to the center, and possibly replace it with a smaller tree, or landscaped in some way. The council approved the removal of the tree, which the

Monday, April 15, 2013 city employees can do. They would only have to hire someone to grind the stump. There was a question about whether that tree was planted in someone’s memory, but nobody has any knowledge about that. Building and Maintenance Report City employee Chris Johnson brought some bids on compressors to the council. Johnson explained there are two air compressors at the wastewater treatment plant, and one is completely shot. The cost to rebuild it would be $7,000, the same cost as to replace it. He added that they really need to have a working air compressor at the plant. He spoke with Russ Stammer, an engineer with Bonestroo, who got some bids for him on new compressors. Johnson recommended the Ingersoll Randall compressor for $5,400. There was some question about the equipment that came with the compressor, and what was actually needed, and Johnson is going to clear that with Stammer. He said this would work for now, but eventually he would like to have the two pumps replaced for the cost savings. Other Business Bakken said the Park Board has decided to go back to the choice of pea rock for the Selvig Park playground, as the engineered wood chips were not what they were expecting. Installation was supposed to be April 20, but will have to be delayed at least a week due to the weather. Illg said the county will be delaying the 1st Ave. street project until 2014. The city will have to think about what sidewalks they would like to replace or take out. Lynn Mensink informed the council there were 51 attendees at the book signing event at the library for Julie Kramer, the author of Shunning Sarah. The new police squad car has arrived, and Illg said they received $5,400 for the old one.

Text & Drive Technology, normally I would argue, usually has its benefits outweigh its downfalls, however, I believe that you can have “too much of a good thing.” One example of the overbearing technology in our lives is rooted in cell phone usage, particularly the act of text messaging. Last week, I was on my commute to my morning sociology class at Winona State University when I could see a rapidly approaching driver in my rearview mirror. Understandably, it’s a well-known fact that a lot of

Monday, April 15, 2013

people may push the speedometer a little on the way to work in the morning. Guilty of a lead foot myself at times, there is a clear difference between a slight fudging of the speed limit and excessive speeding. Speeding lecture aside, glancing in the mirror revealed a lot: another typical college student running a few minutes behind, whether from hitting the snooze button one too many times or having trouble getting the car to start, is trying to make up for lost time. That is, until she caught up to me. With a ‘No

Passing Zone’ in place, she was forced to slow down. Perfect time to respond to some text messages, right? Wrong. In a split second anything could have happened. Looking back periodically this crazy person had her cell phone strategically balanced on the top of her steering wheel while driving down the road, even trying to pass me at one point while simultaneously texting. I’m sure you can imagine my feelings in this situation. Access to technology is omnipresent in our lives, even in the car. But just because your phone is available and within an arm length does not mean it needs to be utilized around the clock, especially while you’re driving. Following this incident I was even more interested to see if this encounter was isolated, or whether it was occurring more often. While waiting at a

The Official Legal Newspaper for Fillmore County stoplight for the green light, I watched the cross traffic move through the intersection. There’s no way I can guarantee what was occurring in other people’s vehicles, but as the cars proceeded, I counted four drivers looking down and taking their eyes off of the road. Distracted driving, including cell phone use and specifically texting, accounts for upwards of 25 percent of all vehicle crashes in Minnesota. In a University of Utah study cited by the Minnesota Department of Transportation, drivers look away from the road and their surrounding environment 4.6 out of every 6 seconds while texting. At an average highway speed of 55 miles-per-hour, this length of time allows a vehicle to move the distance of a football field. Texting while driving is illegal in the state of Minnesota for everyone, even while sitting at

Board of Appeals and Equalization in Lanesboro By Jade Sexton Ron Vikre, appraiser from the County Assessor’s Office, was at the Lanesboro City Council meeting on April 8 to discuss 2012 property assessments in Lanesboro and answer any questions. According to Vikre, there were 158 residential sales in Fillmore County, 13 commercial /industrial sales, and 47 agricultural sales. Vikre explained that properties must be assessed at between 90-105 percent of their market value. Lanesboro’s levy went down 2.376 percent in 2012. The value of all property in Lanesboro is $56,404,400. Richard Horihan asked Vikre about his property assessments, and asked about what happens if the assessors make a mistake. Vikre explained that if there are typos, a mistake can be corrected for up to a year. Horihan said he pointed out a mistake to the asses-

sor’s office, and it was corrected, but he did not receive a refund. The mistake was in the property value. Horihan said they should have the board of appeals at the same time as the budget meetings in December. “It’s extremely confusing for most people,” he said. “It’s a horrible system.” Vikre said they have to abide by certain policies, and that legislators are the only ones that can change things. “The bottom line is we have rules we have to follow.” Norwegian Flags Ethan Bjelland, apprentice at the Commonweal Theatre, approached the council about placing flags of Norway along Parkway and Coffee Street for Lanesboro’s Ibsen Festival. Bjelland said the Commonweal would like to add a little more Norwegian to the festival. “We have a lot to celebrate about our Norwegian heritage,” he said.

One hundred years ago, Norway became the first country to allow women to vote, and to celebrate that, the Ibsen Festival will include a feminist play, A Doll’s House. There will also be a display of dresses and several speakers. The flags will be free of charge and are being borrowed from Decorah. Bjelland asked the city if it was okay to put the flags on the light posts, and also if they had the personnel that could put them up and take them down. The council approved the flags, and approved the Commonweal to put up the flags and take them down. Chamber Request Julie Charlebois of the Lanesboro Chamber of Commerce spoke to the council about the ongoing landscaping project in town. The Chamber had received some bids for laying down mulch and the total cost will be $2,700. Charlebois said the DNR (Department of Natural Resources) will be contributing $500, and she asked the city to contribute the same amount. The Chamber will be paying the remaining $1,700. She added that the cost for maintenance will go down each year after this. It was approved to contribute the $500, but councilor Tom Smith said the Chamber should have the cost budgeted for next year. Charlebois explained the issue has been figuring out who is responsible for the cost of maintenance; the DNR, city, or Chamber. It was not made clear when the project was completed. The motion as approved with the stipulation that they have a discussion with the Chamber about it at budget time next year. Park Road Improvements Improvements are going to be made at the parking lot at the Community Center and the road all the way to the campgrounds. At the meeting, it was approved to have Yaggy Colby and Associates engineer the project, and do soil boring in the parking lot only. Administrator/Clerk Position The city is in the process of

receiving applications for the administrator/clerk position since Bobbie Vickerman left. They will be choosing which applicants to interview in the near future. In the meantime, clerk Michelle Peterson will be taking on more duties, and Theresa Coleman was approved to be the interim Administrator/Clerk at an hourly wage until a new person is hired.

County to acquire federal grant for CSAH 1 By Karen Reisner County Engineer Ronald Gregg acknowledged at the county board’s April 9 meeting that he was excited to announce that an application for a federal grant was successful. Future plans for needed work on CSAH 1 have threatened to eat up the county’s road budget. This procurement of a federal grant will help ease that pressure. Gregg said the $2.2 million 2017 grant is to be used on the northern most five miles of CSAH 1, which includes two bridges. The section is north of CSAH 4 to the Olmsted County line. The grant will pay for 71 percent of the estimated cost and the rest will be paid for with state aid. The stretch will undergo shoulder widening which is considered reconstruction. Gregg noted Olmsted County will improve the half mile north of the Fillmore County line to Highway 30. The federal grant money has to be used from July 2017 to July 2018. The five miles south of CASH 4 to Spring Valley is not included in the grant. There are three bridges in this section. The plan for this section includes a shoulder widening project about three miles north of Spring Valley. The board was pleased with Gregg’s successful effort to get the federal grant funds. Sheriff Department and Jail Options •Sheriff Daryl Jensen updated the board on a variety of things including ARMER. He was

asked how much has been spent so far on the communication system. Jensen estimated nearly $800,000 has been spent, with only about $28,000 coming from tax levy money. The bulk of the funding has been from 911 money and grants. These figures do not include narrowbanding expenses. Commissioner Duane Bakke asked how much more was needed. Jensen explained that the radios they have acquired have been issued for EMS. The only piece left is radios for the fire departments. He said there is no urgency for this as they can continue to operate with the equipment they have, adding part of the responsibility in his opinion to upgrade communications for the fire departments should fall on the cities. Jensen said there is more training to be completed. Enhancement of the signal in some communities may be necessary so communications can be heard inside of a building. Jensen credited Emergency Management/Jail Administrator Kevin Beck for doing a fantastic job. •Jensen noted the average population at the county jail is 12 to 13, which is down from three years ago. The state suggests the maximum population should be 18. The facility has had a population of up to 24. The sheriff continued to express strong support for the Sentence to Serve (STS) program. The program is funded by the county which has a contract with DNR. The county now

houses up to 3 state inmates who participate in the STS program through the Institution/Community Work Crew (ICWC) program. The state pays $55 per day per inmate. The county pays STS workers $1 to $1.50 per hour for their work. Jensen said he would like to expand the program, having up to five inmates from the state. The state inmates guarantee having a crew for STS and the state per diem pays for the cost of the program. Inmates have to be in their last 6 to 18 months of their sentence, are not a disciplinary problem, and are not predatory offenders to qualify for the program. The inmates after 6 months in the program have a unique release, to a half way house. The STS workers do a lot of DNR projects and have worked in cities, like the Rushford flood clean-up and at the Center for the Arts. Jensen maintained that STS “is a good program,” adding “we have had good inmates that work very hard and it is a good fit for us.” •The sheriff’s office has under gone staff turnovers due to retirements and the installation of new equipment over the last year which has necessitated more training. Changes being made for the next generation 911 and ARMER, to bring the dispatch center into compliance with the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (BCA). •During the 2012 jail inspection, two issues were critical. There isn’t a jail nurse and Fill-

Black Cutworm monitoring project By Jerrold Tesmer, Extension Educator for Fillmore/Houston Counties A number of years ago, University of Minnesota Extension along with the Research and Outreach Centers had a Black Cutworm Mo n i t o r i n g Project, it was dropped, Jerrold Tesmer I suspect for budgetary reasons. It has been re-instated in 2013 due to damage that occurred in 2011 and 2012.

The black cutworm moth flights will be monitored by pheromone traps as the black cutworm migrates into Minnesota. These traps can provide 2-3 weeks advance warning on when and where to expect cutting damage from black cutworms. A lure that contains a sex attractant for male black cutworm moths, and a waxed paper bottom with a sticky surface trap incoming moths. Black cutworms are only an occasional corn pest, but this insect still deserves attention due to its potential to cause economic loss. Currently seed treatments and genetically mod-

ified hybrids do not fully protect against cutworms, so corn is still at risk every year to migrating black cutworm moths. Production practices that favor black cutworm damage include late tillage and late planting. Corn planted after soybeans is also more likely to get infested than in continuous corn. Poorly drained, weedy fields or fields located near native vegetation can also be attractive to egglaying females. Black cutworm infestations have been historically sporadic and patchy. A just-in-case treatment does not follow Integrated Pest Management (IPM) guide-

The FCJ reaches over 12,000 household each week. more County has the second oldest jail in Minnesota. Options for a jail nurse were discussed and will be discussed further at a Community Services meeting. The jail was built in 1968. Jensen said they can’t replicate things because of its age. He said they have four options. They could do nothing, which is not an option any more. They can remodel, build new, or go without a jail. Going without a jail is not a reasonable option because they are not close enough to Rochester, Caledonia, or Austin. Bakke said they first have to determine the costs of going forward. Jensen said they should visit jails, discuss what they learn from the visits, then focus on remodel or new, and determine the cost to see if it is affordable. Other Business In Brief •Five Olmsted County Commissioners traveled to Preston and met with the Fillmore County Board to discuss several issues including Destination Medical Center, DFO Corrections, the proposed legislation for an aggregate tax, and silica sand. The Olmsted County Board had unanimously passed a resolution in favor of the DMC concept which could provide 30,000 to 35,000 jobs. Jim Bier said Mayo Clinic is a proven, good, steady employer and supports the community. Part of the DMC expansion plan is to capture some of the increased income and property tax sent to the state to pay for additional infrastructure projects in Rochester. They offered to send a copy of the their resolution to the Fillmore Board.

Bakke was concerned that there is a misunderstanding of the aggregate tax at the state legislature and suggested they work to make it more clear. Bier said Olmsted is waiting to see what comes out of this session of the legislature concerning silica sand. •Three more citizens addressed the board during the Citizen Input portion to encourage the board to require an EIS for the Rein Quarry expansion. Dale Forster, Lanesboro, asked the board to request the EQB to do an EIS. Roy House, Pilot Mound Township, insisted this “is the time to get things right.” Emily Spende, Lanesboro, read a letter on behalf of the Lanesboro Area Chamber of Commerce in support of the MPCA recommendation made in a March 22, 2013 letter to Fillmore County Zoning. It was recommended in the letter that the Minnesota Sands, LLC projects and the Rein Quarry expansion be evaluated by the same Environmental Impact Statement, due to the cumulative effects of the projects. Bakke said the Rein Quarry EAW will be on the April 23 agenda. •Robert Bjorklund, Bjorklund Compensation Consulting, reviewed a salary survey report for county employees. This is the first such survey completed for the county since 2006. He recommended adjustments to bring salaries within market rate and the review of three or four positions which have salaries significantly lower than the market.

CITY OF PRESTON 2012 DRINKING WATER REPORT The City of Preston is issuing the results of monitoring done on its drinking water for the period from January 1 to December 31, 2012. The purpose of this report is to advance consumers’ understanding of drinking water and heighten awareness of the need to protect precious water resources. A copy of this report is available at your request. You can stop at the Preston Public Utility Office, 210 Fillmore St. W., Preston, MN 55965 to pick up your copy. This report is also made available on our website: http://www.prestonmn.org. Call 507-765-2491 if you have questions about the City of Preston drinking water or would like information about opportunities for public participation in decisions that may affect the quality of the water. Source of Water The City of Preston provides drinking water to its residents from a groundwater source: three wells ranging from 222 to 420 feet deep, that draw water from the Jordan aquifer. Firm capacity is 600 gpm or 396,000 gpd, which meets “Ten State” and “Water Works Operations” standards. Total capacity of the three wells is 1250 gpm or 1.8 million gpd Well # 1 is located in the treatment plant building, at the intersection of Ridge Road and Cottage Grove Avenue. It was constructed in 1951, and is equipped with a vertical line-shaft pump. The total depth of this well is 252 feet, which a 10 inch inner casing extending to a depth of 220 feet. The output of sand free water is currently about 325 gpm. Well # 2 is located in the treatment plant building near the intersection of Franklin and Kansas Streets. It was constructed in 1957, and has been upgraded with a submersible pump equipped with a variable frequency drive. The total depth of Well # 2 is 327 feet, with an inner 16-inch casing extending to 327 feet. This well is currently producing 275 gpm. Well # 3 is located in the treatment plant building located in the industrial park south of the Ethanol Plant. It was constructed in 1999. The total Depth of Well # 3 is 420 feet, with an inner casing extending 330 feet. This well is currently producing 650 gpm. Currently, Wells # 1 and # 2 are operated as a lead pump and lag pump rotation. Normally they are rotated on a monthly basis so both wells share about the same amount of water pumped. According to the records that were available, it appears water levels have not changed very much since 1973. Well # 1 is a flowing well and changes very little. Well # 2 varies from 6 feet to 26 feet over this 20 year time period. Well # 3 static water level is 106 ft. to 125 ft. below ground level. The essentially stable population outlook for Preston means that construction of new well capacity will probably be required only if it becomes necessary to replace one of the existing wells. These wells should continue to perform satisfactorily well into the future. Well # 1, with a capacity of 325 gpm, could supply peak day flow to a population equivalent of over, 2,500 at Preston’s per capita water usage rate. Well # 2, with a capacity of 275 gpm, can supply peak day flow to the existing population and thus serves as a backup to Well # 1. However, if population were to grow substantially in the next 20 years, Well # 2 would no longer be able to supply peak day flow, and this backup capacity would be impaired. Well # 3 has a capacity of 650 gpm. Preston’s existing water storage facilities have adequate capacity to serve current domestic needs and any conceivable future domestic needs within the next 20 years. Although the existing reservoirs have sufficient volume to serve considerable additional residential development, they are unable to serve potential development in areas on the north and south sides of the City due to their elevation. The existing reservoirs are situated too low to provide proper pressure to these areas. These areas, which we call “high level service areas,” would have to be served either by new gravity reservoirs or by booster pumping stations and hydro pneumatic tanks. A small area at the south end of the system is at an elevation too high to be served by the ground reservoirs. A booster pump station containing two 60-gpm pumps, a 300 gpm pump, and a 1000 gallon hydro pneumatic tank serves this area. The hydro pneumatic tank provides a very limited amount of storage and serves to maintain more uniform water pressure. The capacity of this booster station and hydro pneumatic tank is insufficient to provide fir flows to the area served. The water provided to customers may meet drinking water standards, but the Minnesota Department of Health has also made a determination as to how vulnerable the source of water may be to future contamination incidents. If you wish to obtain the entire water assessment regarding your drinking water, please call 651-201-4700 or 1-800-818-9318 (and press 5) during normal business hours. Also, you can view it inline at: www.health.state.mn.us/divs/eh/water/swp/swa. Call 507-765-2491 if you have any questions about the City of Preston drinking water or would like information about opportunities for public participation in decisions that may affect the quality of water. Results of Monitoring No contaminants were detected at levels that violated federal drinking water standards. However, some contaminants were detected in trace amounts that were below legal limits. The table that follows shows the contaminants that were detected in trace amounts last year. (Some contaminants are sampled less frequently than once a year; as a result, not all contaminants were sampled for 2012. If any of these contaminants were detected the last time they were sampled for, they are included in the table along with the sate the detection occurred.) Key to abbreviations: MCLG-Maximum Contaminant Level Goal: The level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MCLGs allow for a margin of safety. MCL-Maximum Contaminant Level: The highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCLs are set as close to the MCLGs as feasible using the best available treatment technology. MRDL- Maximum Residual Disinfectant Level. MRDLG- Maximum Residual Disinfectant Level Goal. AL--Action Level: The concentration of a contaminant, which, if exceeded, triggers treatment, or other requirement, which a water system must follow. 90th Percentile Level- This is the value obtained after disregarding 10 percent of the samples taken that had the highest levels. (For example, in a situation in which 10 samples were taken, the 90th percentile level is determined by disregarding the highest result, which represents 10 percent of the samples.) Note: In situations in which only 5 samples are taken, the average of the two with the highest levels is taken to determine the 90th percentile level. pCi/l—PicoCuries per liter (a measure of radioactivity).

* This is the value used to determine compliance with federal standards. It sometimes is the highest value detected and sometimes is an average of all the detected values. If it is an average, it may contain sampling results from the previous year.

ppm—Parts per million, which can also be expressed as micrograms per liter (mg/l). ppb—Parts per billion, which can also be expressed as milligrams per liter (mg/l). nd- No Detection N/A—Not Applicable (does not apply)

If present, elevated levels of lead can cause serious health problems, especially for pregnant women and young children. Lead in drinking water is primarily from materials and components associated with service lines and home plumbing. City of Preston is responsible for providing high quality drinking water, but cannot control the variety of materials used in plumbing components. When your water has been sitting for several hours, you can minimize the potential for lead exposure by flushing your tap for 30 seconds to 2 minutes before using water for drinking or cooking. If you are concerned about lead in your water, you may wish to have your water tested. Information on lead in drinking water, testing methods, and steps you can take to minimize exposure is available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline or at http://www.epa.gov/safewater/lead. Monitoring may have been done for additional contaminants that do not have MCLs established for them and are not required to be monitored under the Safe Drinking Water Act. Results may be available by calling 651-201-4700 or 1-800-818-9318 during normal business hours. Compliance with National Primary Drinking Water Regulations The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs, and wells. As water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally occurring minerals and, in some cases, radioactive material, and can pick up substances resulting from the presence of animals or from human activity. Contaminants that may be present in source water include: Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic systems, agricultural livestock operations, and wildlife. Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally occurring or result from urban stormwater runoff, industrial or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining or farming. Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban stormwater runoff, and residential uses. Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are by-products of industrial processes and petroleum production, and can, also come from gas stations, urban stormwater runoff, and septic systems. Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally- occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining activities. In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) prescribes regulations, which limit the amount of certain contaminants in water provided by public water systems. Food and Drug Administration regulations establish limits for contaminants in bottled water, which must provide the same protection for public health. Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that water poses a health risk. More information about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Environmental Protection Agency’s Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 800-426-4791. Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immuno-compromised persons such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ transplants, people with HIV/ AIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk from infections. These people should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers. EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by Cryptosporidium are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 800426-4791. Publish 15
