Audience is “Pow-Wowed” at Historical Forestville By Barb Jeffers

Historic Forestville hosted the Prairie Island Indian Community on Saturday, June 1, 2013 to present a Dakota Drum & Dance Mini Pow Wow. Two presentations were given with the first held at 11:00 am and the second being offered at 2:00 pm. As visitors meandered through Historic Forestville, the participants in the Pow Wow donned their regalia and set up their equipment. The beat of the drum drew people to the Pow Wow site where dancers in beautiful bright colors awaited. Viewers were seated on benches set in a large circle. One great aspect of this particular Pow Wow was the fact that it was interpreted. The members of the Prairie Island Indian Community spoke of their heri-

Skydivers jump for hope By K irsten Zoellner

“Do you know someone who likes adventure? Is addicted to adrenaline? Has skydiving on their bucket list?” June 23, at the Rushford Municipal Airport, Jumps for Hope founder Alana Wilson, in cooperation with Westside Skydivers, will provide an opportunity where thrill seekers can quench their search for adventure while providing funds for cancer research. “We’re excited to bring an

event like this to southeast Minnesota,” says Wilson, who is passionate about both skydiving and her opportunity to make a difference to those whose lives have been touched by cancer. “I spent almost 20 years feeling cheated that I lost my father when he was so young. However, since starting Jumps for Hope, I have a new view and have decided to use the power of that emotion to help others. It has also taught me to live with no regrets, to pursue my dreams, to live life boldly and




do what makes me happy.” Wilson has been tandem skydiving for nearly two years and says it’s an experience that’s indescribable. She was so struck by the experience that she set a personal goal of 50 skydives before the age of 50. “I never had a direction in what I could do to help fight cancer, until I gave it some thought and decided I should pair my love for skydiving with raising funds for cancer research. I had also discovered how empowered I See SKYDIVERS Page 3 

tage. Paul Dressen, Educational Manager of the Prairie Island Indian Community, described the Dakota people as “very spiritual people, a caring people, and a compassionate people,” adding that in the last 200 years the Dakota have “had to be a very resilient people.” Dressen explained that he and the other participants of the Pow Wow are not a professional dance group. He said the group consists of extended family from the community. Dressen stated, “This is one way we teach our children, through participation in such events and drumming and dancing.” Dressen explained that it is very important for kids to sit and play the drum as it is one way to hand down their traditions to the next generation. Whether you realize it or not, you also speak Dakota words. Dressen told the audience that many words we use are Dakota words including Winona,

Mazeppa, Mankato and many other words the residents in the area use frequently. Dressen stated that even the word Minnesota is actually a Dakota word, which shows the influence the Dakota people have in our everyday lives. Following a song that is comparable to the Dakota National Anthem, the Pow Wow officially began with the Grand Entry. During the Grand Entry all of the dancers formed a single line and entered the circle one by one and began to dance to the beat of the drum and the singing by other members of the Dakota community. The first impression of the dancers is their regalia and the many articles the regalia entails. The clothing the dancers wear is See POW-WOW Page 8 

Lanesboro City Council hears audit report By Jade Sexton

Jason Boynton of Smith Schafer and Associates presented the 2012 audit report at the regular Lanesboro City Council meeting on June 3. Boynton went over the main points of the revenues and expenditures. The property tax revenue was very close to the amount that was levied at $435,144. Boynton noted that

state LGA (Local Government Aid) had not increased at all, which is the same in all cities. The LGA accounted for 18 percent of the city’s total revenues. General expenditures increased by only $1,066 from 2011. These include the mayor and council, administration, building, and election costs. Public safety expenditures, including police, fire and ambulance services, totaled $217,234. BoynSee LANESBORO Page 11 

C ommentary The Field Behind the Plow By Eric Leitzen You know, I can’t remember the last time I bought beef. I don’t mean staggering into the local gruntburger stand and grabbing a Whopper (or maybe a Villager Road Special to split with a friend or two), but actually going to the store Eric Leitzen and purchasing a cut of beef, a grind of beef, or even any of those potentially hazardous canned-beef products. Luckily, my parents happen to know a local beef farmer, and they can get a wholesale deal from him, which allows me to buy it from them at a decent markup or, more normally, my mother will just start throwing cow parts in my freezer before I

get a chance to pay. What can I say, she is my mother, and mothers do what mothers do. Looking back only a few years, I doubt I’d recognize myself. Or, at least, my plate. I suppose you could call me a reformed carnivore, trading out seven nights a week of meat-heavy dinners for even (shock!) one or two meatless nights a week. It’s partly economically motivated, but the recent financial crunches have managed to force my hand into eating healthier, and so I’m suddenly trolling the internet for vegetarian and vegan recipes. That sound you just heard is my father fainting in shame and a few generations of my ancestors groaning from the Great Beyond. I’ve tried to make peace with great-great grandfather Johann and the others by following in their homesteading footsteps

One Moment, Please... Continuous Improvement By Jason Sethre Publisher Fillmore County Journal & Olmsted County Journal Cell: 507-251-5297 You’ve probably seen our recent advertisements showcasing a few employees who make the Fillmore County Journal a reality every single week. You’ve only seen the tip of the ice berg. We have many more people behind the scenes that you’ll get Jason Sethre to read about as our “Community Ads” appear in the Journal Editorial Cartoon

each week. Our goal with these advertisements is to demonstrate what we feel is important for our company to be fully vested in the betterment of the communities we serve. At the top of each advertisement, you’ll see the phrase, “We Live Where We Work.” We feel this is important. And, it’s not just about living where you work. It is about getting involved in the community. We need to give back. And, not just us at the Fillmore County Journal. I think everyone has the opportunity to help make their community and the world a better place. And, while I am proud of our talented and dedicated team, and all the good things we do,

this summer. When my wife and I moved into our house in March of 2012, we had a small bare patch of earth in the (back yard) I managed to turn into a small amount of beets and lettuce thanks to the wonderful folks at Seed Savers in Decorah, Iowa. Sadly, my first bean crop fell victim to a dreaded plague of adorable bunnies, but it allowed me to catch the gardening bug not only as a mean of recreation and exercise, but also to satisfy my thrifty nature and be satisfied in the knowledge that I am eating by my own hand and my own toil. This summer, I decided to extend the tiny, five-by-five square I’d planted last year into a bona fide gardening operation, adding peas, beans, squash, radishes, and even potatoes into the mix. However, my (back yard) was currently the domain of ragweed, creeping charlie, and enough burdock to block out the sun. Suddenly, I found myself

connecting to the Leitzens of the past, turning over soil that hadn’t been broken in years, busting sod and planting my livelihood in the tiniest sliver of an acre to provide for my family. Sure, it’s nothing like the 160 acres of our homesteading past, but it’s my crop, warts and all. Within five years I went from a pampered college boy to an aspiring urban farmer, up to my elbows in loam, arms full of stinging nettle burns, and not a hamburger in sight. I do still crave beef sometimes, that much is certain. But still, there’s something to be said for cutting some of the meat out of your diet, for health or wealth reasons. My picture up there may not, or probably does, show that I am what they might call a gentleman of increased carriage, and I am no less well-fed now that I was during my hamburger and taco-fueled college days… but I’m being fed a lot better than back then, thanks to my

I am also our worst critic. I have to be. I have to take a step back and look at our company from the eyes of our customers -- readers and advertisers. We can never settle. I have always been a firm believer that we can always do better. It doesn’t matter what we do, we can always do better. We never want to assume that we’ve arrived at our best. On occasion, we have readers point out errors, whether grammatical or factual. And, we appreciate the fact that our readers are paying attention to the information we are providing the public. When we run a correction, we realize that what we provide to the communities we serve is relevant to so many people. And, we need to strive to be at our best. Unlike many other jobs, when we make a mistake it is completely exposed to the public. There are not many

jobs in which a person can be so vulnerable to public scrutiny. We consider this a good thing. Without relevance, we would quickly fade. With all of this said, I know that we do a great job in many areas, and it all relates to our greatest asset - our people. We have the most talented team of graphic designers of any newspaper in Southeast Minnesota. As a matter of fact, while other newspapers have conducted layoffs or downsized their production departments, eliminating and outsourcing graphic design positions to other states and even other countries, our local design team continSee SETHRE Page 5 

fantastic cook of a wife. Give it a shot yourself: dig up a little of your yard, or stick a box of potting soil in your apartment window. There are plenty of plants out there that are darn near impossible to kill, and I’m speaking from experience. I have the personal grace of several bulls in the world’s smallest china shop, and even the squash seedling I stepped on two days ago was back standing tall yesterday. It’s economical, it’s healthy, and you can’t beat the satisfaction of putting a seed in the grown and watching it first poke up through the soil. Yes, despite my years of fancy book-learning, tens of thousands of dollars in student debt, and time on stage performing Shakespeare, Chekhov or Sondheim… it seems I’m still a farmer at heart. Somehow, I hope that makes all the old Leitzens smile.

ues to stand out in the creative crowd. It’s amazing to me that our weekly newspaper in Fillmore County has more graphic designers than the largest daily newspaper in Southeast Minnesota. We have five and they have none. Our local designers live where they work and they interact with our clients all the time. They know this area, which helps them better serve the needs of clients. To me and to our advertisers, this is priceless. Likewise, our salespeople also live in the communities where they work. They know their clients and their primary goal is to help their customers succeed in business. We couldn’t ask for a

more caring, creative and intuitive team of salespeople. And, our local reporters are dynamic in that they truly care about the communities they cover in Fillmore County. They keep their thumb on the pulse of our communities. Our reporters live among the people they serve. Every week, we have a flood of stories to choose from as reporters bounce story ideas in my direction. Also, while many people may not realize the importance of a well-organized distribution system, we have a team (myself included) that helps to make that a streamlined process every week. It’s not easy, rain or shine, but very important. When you see one of our company vans dropping off newspapers at the local Post Office or a rack loca-

tion, we are doing our part to make the Fillmore County Journal the most accessible newspaper in the area. While we have a fantastic team, we want to be even better. Our team takes personal pride in providing you with the best local newspaper in the region. And, if you don’t feel where are there yet, then please tell us why. We are always open to suggestions. What can we do better? What do you think of our news coverage in particular communities? Too much of one town, not enough of others? What are we missing? What do we publish that you think is a waste of space? We want to know. In today’s Fillmore County Journal, please look for a survey in which we are asking for

referred to as “regalia,” not as costumes. Each dancer’s regalia is made up of things handed down to them, traded, or have meaning to them in some way. The individual dances featured a separate dancer for each different dance style. Before beginning their individual dances, each dancer gave his or her name and said which dance he or she would be performing. The dancer would then tell the audience why they chose their particular type of dance and what it means to them. The dances included the Traditional Men’s Dance, the Women’s Traditional Dance, Women’s Fancy Dance, Men’s Fancy Dance, Grass Dance and Jingle Dance. Jasmine Fiddler, 20, is a Traditional Dancer who explains that the Traditional Dance is “the oldest dance,” and she chooses to dance the Traditional Dance because she “loves to express herself ” through the dance.

Monday, June 10, 2013

One of the most exciting and colorful dances was the Fancy Feather Dance. The speaker stated that the Fancy Feather Dance originally came from “trading dances with Indians in Oklahoma” and explained that the Traditional Dance style was traded to learn the Fancy Dance style which is how different dances were taught. Seven-year-old Laurel, who performs the Jingle Dance, explained that the dance is known as a “healing dance,” and the regalia includes small bells covering the dress which make a joyous sound as she dances. The last dance performed was the Circle Dance. The audience was invited to participate, which many chose to do and seemed to enjoy immensely. Whether young or old each person in the circle had a smile on his or her face and expressed themselves in any form of dancing they chose. Admission to the Pow Wow also included a tour of Historic Forestville, complete with roaming chickens and interpreters in costume. Alisa Wagner is one of the interpreters and portrays “Nellie Moyles,” a house servant who lived and worked in Forestville in 1899. Alisa stated that the interpreters were on hand to answer any questions a visitor may have. Also available to help with the event and answer questions was John Grabko, Site Supervisor at Historic Forestville, as well as Sandy Scheevel, Site Manager. Two visitors at Historic

Forestville for the Pow Wow were Everett and Beatrice Eickhoff of Fountain, Minn. Beatrice stated that she likes to watch Indian things and said that Forestville is her “old stomping grounds.” She explained that she taught school for two years in Forestville seventy years ago. She said the school was a large two story school, but it is no longer standing. There is a plaque in place showing where the school was located. The past came alive in Forestville on June 1, 2013 with the sights and sounds of the Prairie Island Indian Community Pow Wow. Sandy Scheevel stated that there have been Pow Wows in Forestville in the past, but this was the first one in probably one hundred and fifty years, making it very special. Many hope it will not be another 150 years before the next one. Historical Forestville is located within Forestville Mystery Cave State Park at 21899 County Road 118, Preston, Minn. For additional information about Historic Forestville or Forestville Mystery Cave State Park go to Contact John Grabko at (507) 765-2785 with any questions.

ton noted the Culture and Recreation expenditures had increased by almost $50,000 due to the landscaping project. Revenue from Buffalo Bill Days was $40,646, and the total cost was $38,388. The unassigned general fund balance makes up 32 percent of the general fund expenditures. Boynton explained the state likes to see it from 30-50 percent, so they are still in range, but it’s something they should keep an eye on and be aware of. All debts are being paid off in a timely manner, and there was no new debt issued in 2012. Utility revenues are covering expenses well. Fund cash reserves are at $397,472. Sewer and Street Projects Dillon Dombrovski, an engineer with Yaggy Colby and Associates, had quotes from two contractors for the storm sewer project on Hwy. 250. The pipe under Riverside on the Root will be abandoned and re-routed to the south with an outlet into the river south of the building. Blitz Contracting was the low bid, and Dombrovski recommended they accept it. He said

they have requested the project be done by mid to end of July so it is done before Buffalo Bill Days. There was also discussion about the road project at the park. Dombrovski said the water table is within two or three feet of the existing surface at the area near the tennis courts. He spoke with geotechnical engineers who said if they do a reclaim and repave in that area, they will have the same problems return in two years. Dombrovski explained how they could look at a complete sub-cut and reclaim and reshape the area to help drain the water away. The cost of just the construction would be $127,000. Mayor Steve Rahn said they should consider this, as it would be waste of money to do work on a road that will be damaged again in two years. Dombrovski is going to look into some legacy grants, and other funding options will be discussed when they go over the Capital Improvement Plan. Ambulance Department Ambulance Director David Haugen informed the council that he will be resigning his position as director as of July 1. Haugen said there will be two

Monday, June 10, 2013 EMTs completing their training this summer. They will have to take the national test before they can go on ambulance calls. They also have four first responders that are taking training in Spring Valley, Minn. The bare minimum for calls is one first responder and one EMT, so this will help cover on-call hours. Haugen said they have not missed any calls, but it has been a strain to cover these hours. With the strain of the position, a family, and two jobs, Haugen feels there should be a director who can give more time to the job. “It was not an easy decision,” he said. He will be staying on as an EMT. There was some discussion about replacing the director, and Haugen said the consensus of the team was that it should be a paid, part-time position at 20 hours a week. “There’s nobody willing to take over my position as it is,” he stated. He added that he believed there would be a lot of interest if the position was paid. This person could help cover the daytime hours, which are the hardest to cover. The council approved advertising for a part-time director, and Haugen will help create a job description.

Lanesboro celebrates annual Rhubarb Festival By Mitchell Walbridge Town celebrations are pretty common around southeastern Minnesota, celebrating the founding of a town or highlights of the geographical area. What is uncommon, however, is when a festival is completely centered around a vegetable, specifically rhubarb. Everything from juggling flaming stalks of rhubarb to rhubarb zumba dancing, the community of Lanesboro, Minn. recently celebrated its annual Rhubarb Festival on Saturday, June 2. Over the years that the rhubarb

celebration has been hosted in Sylvan Park, it has been increasing in popularity for locals, residents of the state of Minnesota, and beyond. This year’s 5th annual “Rhubarb Run” had 163 participants. To begin the events of the day, Master of Ceremonies Phil Dybing welcomed two members of KTTC-TV’s morning news team, Jess Abrahamson and Ted Schmidt, as they threw the first rhubarb stock for the Rhubarb Olympics. They then proceeded to lead the Tasting of Everything Rhubarb competition.

Musical entertainment was provided all through the morning and afternoon by the famous Rhubarb Sisters, Rutabaga Brothers, Walter Bradley and Steve Arnold, and Tom Schramm. A Rhubarb National Anthem was even performed. In addition the Rhubarb Sisters entertained guests at the St. Mane Theatre with a “I Left My Heart in Rhubarb Country” concert on Saturday evening. Several competitions also took place throughout the festival. A rhubarb Minute-to-Win-It Chopstick Contest took place. The winner, Jessica Stannard, was

we will not be having a strawberry festival in henrytown this year.

“It’s a very important service for our community,” said Mayor Rahn. Autumn Johnson informed the council about the Boy Scouts of America Explorer Program. The program is to encourage young people from age 14-20 to get involved in Emergency Medical Services. “It’s a great program, and a great experience for them,” said Johnson. She said hopefully some of these kids will come back and work on the ambulance crew someday. The council approved the program, as well as a checking account in Lanesboro. A new ambulance is needed, as the current one is more than 10 years old. Johnson said they are looking at grant money to help out and to add to the money that is already budgeted. They are looking at a 2012 fourwheel drive ambulance which has a cost of $139,900. City Administrator position The contract for City Administrator David Todd was signed, and Todd will start on July 1. Interim City Administrator Theresa Coleman said she would be around for his first week to help out, and would also be available the second week, while Todd is at a conference.

Radium project Councilor Joe O’Connor spoke about the bids received for the project to fix the water radium issue in Lanesboro. They received four bids, and Davy Engineering was the lowest bid. Davy Engineering did the preliminary study for the project. O’Connor explained they will do all of the engineering on the project, as well as submit reports to the state and help with funding options. He added there are a still a lot of unknowns about the project and costs. The council approved Davy Engineering contingent upon review by City Attorney Tom Manion. Other Business Mike Bubany of David Drown Associates will be at the Public Utilities Commission meeting on June 17 at 10:30 am, and at the joint City Council/Public Utilities meeting on July 1 at 5:30 pm to discuss the city’s Capital Improvement Plan. The chicken/fowl ordinance was approved with minor changes. It was approved to assess the unpaid utility bills of two residents to their property taxes. A gambling license was approved for the Lanesboro Chamber of Commerce.

able to transfer 81 finely chopped pieces of rhubarb from one bowl to another within in one minute. Pie making contests took place during the afternoon. Categories of kids, men, and women tested their pie making skills. Competitors were able to keep their pies after each competition round. The rhubarb tasting competition ended as rhubarb fest attendees spent several hours tasting the rhubarb entries and

voting for their favorites. The first place winner was Wendy Nickel, who entered a rhubarb cheese cake, second place went to Theresa Coleman who entered “Rhu-B-Que,” and third place went to Jerilyn Eddy for her rhubarb BBQ sauce. The annual Rhubarb Festival takes place in Sylvan Park in Lanesboro, usually the first weekend of June. For more information on the Rhubarb Festival, visit

Fillmore County Sports By Paul Trende No one would’ve expected it, or seen it coming. As it was occurring, people were skeptical that it would continue. Yet somehow, the Fillmore Central/Lanesboro baseball team made a post-season pilgrimage that included stops in Rushford, Winona twice (for three games), and finally Austin. Most would’ve probably not batted an eyelash if FC/L’s post-season included just one stop and then the summer. The Falcons weren’t wearing Cinderella slippers. There wore Cinderella cleats. After a first week of play-off action that saw 5-seed FC/L take down 4-seed Rushford-Peterson 11 to 3, lose to top-ranked Wabasha-Kellogg 10 to 0, and then upset 2-seed Chatfield 7 to 3, the Falcons (4-11) got 3-seed Lewiston-Altura (10-7) in the Sub-Section 1A 2nd place game. Like the contest with the Gophers, FC/L got the Cardinals immediately following a loss (to W-K 9 to 1) and, the Falcons jumped on L-A right away. After an out, an Andy Love walk, and then another out, FC/L’s next four batters reached, three (Clay Olson, Cal Larson, Jake Tammel) by hit, one (Nick Powell) by walk. Larson’s RBI single plated Love to make it 1-0. Tammel then

smacked the most important hit of the game, burning L-A left-fielder Storm Seefeldt for a huge, bases clearing 3-run double. After half an inning, the Falcons led 4-0. But Lewiston-Altura did what Chatfield couldn’t do days earlier. They got back into the game. Hunter Matzke smacked a 2-run double in the second inning making it 4-2. FC/L got those runs back a ½ inning later. Powell answered with a 2-run double of his own, his first hit of the post-season no less, and the Falcons again led by four (6-2). L-A then got a run in the 3rd and 4th innings. In the bottom of the 5th, Ryan Gnadt got in on the 2-run action with a 2-run single and, suddenly, with two full innings to go, the teams were back to square one, tied at 6 apiece. They didn’t stay tied long. In FC/L’s half of the 6th, Niko Anderson led off with a single. A pitch then hit Andy Love. Dan Gatzke followed with an infield hit, filling the bases with Falcons runners. Clean-up man Clay Olson, on a 0-2 count no less, then got one run in via sacrifice fly. Senior Cal Larson got a second courtesy of an off-the-pitchers-glove infield hit. On the play, Gatzke was gunned down at home trying to expand FC/L’s lead, but

with 6 outs to go, the Falcons led 8-6. Senior pitcher Nick Ebner (who recorded the win) saw four batters and set down three in the 6th. Josh Jones, the hero pitcher from the Chatfield game, did the same in the 7th, giving up a walk, but striking out the final two Cardinal batters to get the save. By a final of 8-6, FC/L grabbed the Sub-Section 1A runner-up trophy and, improbably, booked themselves a trip to Austin for the Section final four. Four players had two or more hits for the Falcons, Larson (3-4, 2 RBI, 2 R), Gatzke (2-4, 2B), Olson (2-3, RBI), and Powell (2-3, 2B, R, 2 RBI). Tammel was 1 for 3, but his 3-run double was the tone setter. Matzke (2-4, 2 2B’s, 3 RBI) and Gnadt (2-3, 3 RBI) drove in all six L-A runs. In Austin, the dream postseason run finally was halted. FC/L faced off with Sub-Section 1A West runner-up Hayfield (9-13). The Vikings sort of did to FC/L what FC/L had done to Chatfield and L-A. Courtesy of three first inning hits, Hayfield jumped ahead 2-0. They added to the lead in the third inning making the score 3-0. FC/L finally got on the board in the top of the 5th. Devin Block singled. Garrett Boggs sacrificed him to second. Niko Anderson then drove him in, but Block would be the only Falcon to cross home plate. Hayfield added an insurance run in the

6th and prevailed 4-1. FC/L had a couple opportunities snuffed out before they could even get off the ground. Viking catcher Connor Nelson picked FC/L runners off first base in the 2nd and 5th innings. He also threw Anderson out trying to steal second in the 3rd. That, combined with Hayfield’s ultraaggressiveness at the plate (they had 11 one-pitch at bats and another five two-pitch at bats), and the mound work of Viking sophomore pitcher Blake Risius (7 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 3 K) combined to spell the Falcons demise. FC/L’s whirlwind season, their first under head coach Keith Larson, ends at 5-12. It was the deepest play-off run of any FC/L baseball team in the program’s history (which dates back to 1993-1994). Dissimilar Track and Field Duo Shines Chatfield’s Jayme LaPlante and Maddy Kammer are pretty much physical opposites of each other. Jayme is male. Maddy is not. LaPlante is 6’3” and 210plus pounds of athletic burly bigness. Kammer is 5’9” tall of an indeterminate weight, though one much less than 210 pounds. She is probably best described as long and limby (all limbs). LaPlante can run, but specializes in the ‘throw’ portion of the ‘field’ events. Kammer

is a ‘track’ runner all the way. They are both blondes. Each used their respective physical tools (besides the blond hair) to earn multiple trips to the state Class A track meet. Kammer, a sophomore, used her long legs to become the Section 1A 200-meter and 400-meter champion. Her 200meter time was 26.62 seconds. It is Kammer’s second straight Section title at that distance. She did not qualify for last year’s state 200-meter state final (ran five races in two days, per her other inclusion on Chatfield’s state 4x100 and 4x200 teams). Coming in right behind her was not-yet-in-high-school Gopher teammate, 8th grader Mariah Bell. Bell snatched the coveted second state spot by a whopping .01 seconds from Byron’s Jillian Krier. In the 400, Kammer was a full second (58.68) faster than second place Elizabeth May of Southland (GMLOS). Maddy’s time garnered the highest seed (was the lowest) of 16 state participants (she’s one of only three entrants to run a sub-one-minute 400-meters). In addition to the individual 200 and 400meter races, Kammer will run with teammates Ashley Baker (junior), Autum Erickson (freshmen), and Bell as the Section 1A See SPORTS Page 13 

champion entrant in the 4x200 relay. With a time of 1:46.32, they have the best seed (lowest time). The foursome continues the grand Gopher girl’s relay tradition. Chatfield sprint teams have made it to state each of the last seven years. LaPlante, meanwhile, will make his first state track and field appearance, in two events. Jayme, a junior, won the Section 1A discus crown. His 147’9” tally was exactly a foot better than Stewartville’s Shane Curtis. LaPlante also finished third at the shot put (50’10”), behind Lewiston-Altura’s Evan Bain (53’2”) and Winona-Cotter’s Kenny Kirkvold (51’3 ½”). Per standard (50’9”), Jayme qualified for the state meet. Two other county athletes qualified for the trek to Hamline University. Lanesboro sophomore Olivia Haug (L/FC/M-C) won the girls Section 1A discus title

with a throw of 114’11”. She bested Stewartville’s Sarah West (111’) by over three feet. Rushford-Peterson 8th grader Noah Carlson won the triple jump (42’1”) over Pine Island’s Ben Farrell (42’00 ¼”). It was one of three events Carlson competed in at Sectionals, and he isn’t even in high school yet. He also finished 5th at the 400-meter dash and was a part of R-P-H’s 4th place 4x200 team (with Tyler McLellan/Casey McClellan/Dan Thorson). It will be Haug and Carlson’s first state track and field meet. A few other county athletes were within earshot of a state birth. Chatfield junior Ashley Baker finished 3rd in the 100-meters and was only .18 seconds out of second place (behind Byron’s Krier). L/FC/MC 8th grader Kiera Olson was a part of a logjam photo finish in the 3,200-meter race. Olson wound up finishing third with a time of 11:54.87. La Crescent’s Sylvia Lechnir (11:54.52) and

Rochester-Lourdes’ Shannon Strickland (11:54.64) finished 1-2, as all three were right there. R-P-H junior Austin O’Hare notched two third place finishes (1,600-meters, 3,200-meters). He was well back in the 3,200, but right behind (4:36.98) Lourdes’ Dakota Streit (1st, 4:35.88) and Faribault B.A.’s Drew Busch (2nd, 4:36.29) in the 1,600. The Chatfield girls 4x100 (Baker/Erickson/Maddie Talamantes/Bell) was also just off state pace. They finished 4th, but their time (0:51:41) was .41 seconds short (0:51:00) of that needed to qualify by standard. L/FC/M-C’s Gabe Decker and R-P-H’s Jordan Honken (Pole Vault) each had third place finishes, or just out of reach of state. For more Section 1A meet results, see below. Bearson, Stensgard Qualify For State There will just be two county athletes competing at state golf meets this season. Lanesboro senior Johanna Bearson (82), the Sub-Section 1A East runner-up (to Wabasha-Kellogg’s Courtney Sill), was again runner-up at the Section 1A meet. Her 81

was one shot behind LewistonAltura’s Elizabeth Hennessey. Bearson tied for second with GM/L-O’s Kaitlin King. The effort advanced Bearson to her 4th state golf meet. She finished 51st as an 8th grader, tied for 34th as a freshmen, and tied for 20th last year as a junior. A pair of Fillmore Central gal golfers, Katie Tammel (96, 8th place) and Laura Donney (97, 9th place) finished in the top ten. Kingsland’s Megan Back (98) finished 10th. On the boy’s side of things, Rushford-Peterson junior Hudson Stensgard shot a 79, three off the pace (76) set by co-medallist’s Brady Becker (Hayfield) and Fletcher Blaschko (W-K). Stensgard finished tied for 4th with three other individuals (enough to move on to the state tournament). The Fillmore Central boys team finished 3rd (339) behind W-K (316) and Hayfield (335), but no Falcon qualified for state. Jordan Miller, the Sub-Section 1A co-champion, finished tied for 9th place (82). Teammate Trevor Barnes and Lanesboro’s Liam Dorn were the next best two county golf-

Due to the alarming amount of non-recyclable materials (ie: trash, paint, tires, used oil, electronics, mattresses, bed frames, plastic swimming pools, and vinyl siding) to name a few, being left at the Fillmore County rural recycling containers, they are now being monitored more closely. If conditions don’t improve, the containers will be removed and recyclables will need to be brought to the Fillmore County Resource Recovery Center in Preston. The Fillmore County Resource Recovery Center is open from 7:30am-3:30pm Monday-Friday and the first Saturday of the month from 8am-Noon, unless the first Saturday is a holiday weekend then it is open the same hours the second Saturday of the month. Leaving non-recyclables at these contrainer sites is a misdemeanor violation of the Fillmore County Solid Waste Ordinance and is punishable by a $500.00 fine.

Wykoff Fall Fest Invites Subjects for Sept. Photo Display The Wykoff Fall Fest Committee in collaboration with the Wykoff Historical Society, the Dreamery Rural Arts Initiative, and Spring Valley photographer Anthony Calabrese, have received a grant through the Southeastern Minnesota Arts council for a public art project that will take place during the month of September, 2013, as part of the town’s Fall Fest celebration. The project, entitled Facing Wykoff, will be a display of photographs of town residents that will fill the downtown storefronts. Current residents of Wykoff (those that live within the town’s city limits) are invited to come to 106 Gold Street (Eickoff community building) on Saturday, June 29 from 10am to 4pm or Sunday, June 30 from noon to 5pm to have their pictures taken. Any Wykoff resident is welcome and encouraged

to participate; there is no cost involved. Photographer Anthony Calabrese graduated from St. Mary’s College in Winona, Minn. in 1974 with a degree in Studio Arts and sociology. He went on to have a career in photography, being published in Modern Photography, Photo Design, and a variety of newspapers and journals, as well as participating in Minnesota photographic exhibitions. For a period, he photographed professional wrestlers, including a one Jesse Ventura. But, his largest solo project involved 2,300 photographs documenting facilities of the Federal Bureau of Prisons for the Bureau of Prisons archives in Washington DC. He recently retired from a 25 year career with the Federal Bureau of Prisons, and has returned to his alma mater (now St. Mary’s University) as a teacher of photography. Facing Wykoff will comprise approximately 50 photographs of a spectrum of Wykoff residents. The display will hang during the month of September in the Gold Street storefronts: it will be free to view and open to the public, and will coincide with Fall Fest. Mr. Calabrese will photograph all Wykoff individuals that wish to partici-

pate. While his final selection of photos for display will depend on the results of the sessions and his aesthetic discretion, all photos taken will be projected as a slide show during the opening reception for the exhibit on Sept. 1 and be made available to participants. Those Wykoff residents that would like to be part of the exhibit are invited to come to 102 Gold Street on the abovementioned days. The photographer will work with people as quickly as time allows. People are asked to come in comfortable clothing and not to take pains to “dress up;” the photographs are intended to be of people “as they are.” Elder or mobility-challenged Wykoff residents who have either moved to a care facility or cannot leave their homes, are asked to call Mr. Calabrese (507-346-7399) directly to make an appointment to be photographed during the month of July. This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Southeastern Minnesota Arts Council thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund. Questions may be put to the Dreamery’s Eva Barr (507-352-4255), who is facilitating the project.

Seeking volunteer host families to host exchange students for 2013/2014 school year “Hosting an international exchange student is a wonderful way for American families to learn about another country and culture without ever leaving their homes,” says Laura Stahl, Special Services Director for Organization for Cultural Exchange Among Nations. “It is also a great way to promote cultural awareness while providing young people with the opportunity of a lifetime.” While participating in the exchange program students learn how Americans celebrate holidays that may be new to them, such as Halloween and Thanksgiving. They also participate in the family’s daily life while attending American Students are fully insured, proficient in English and come with their own spending money

to cover personal expenses. Organization for Cultural Exchange Among Nations is currently sponsoring students from the countries of Brazil, China, Colombia, the Czech Republic, Ecuador, Germany, Kyrgyzstan, Slovakia, Spain and the Ukraine. Families of all types are able to participate in our program, to include single persons and senior citizens, as well as married couples who are either with or without children. Host families are volunteers and are asked to provide the student with room and board, as well as a loving family environment.

Let your inner Norwegian shine at Gammel Dag By Kirsten Zoellner In Peterson, Minn. it’s pretty hard to top the kick off to summer; Gammel Dag. Hailed by the town as a “hidden treasure where everyone is Norwegian for the day,” it’s jam-packed with enough fun events to make the whole family shout a hearty, “Uff da!” Running June 14-16, this year marks the fest’s 32nd celebration, and organizers think it’ll be the best one yet. New this year, the festivities will include a Bean Bag Tournament. With a 32 team limit, bags will start flying at 1pm, Saturday, June 15. The cost for the event is $20 per team, with a 100 percent pay out. It will conclude with a Winner’s Bracker and double elimination, a Loser’s Bracket

with single elimination, and a Bad Luck Bracket. In addition, a Longest Throw Contest will be held. Participants can buy three throws for $3. The winner will get half of the proceeds, while the other half will go to the city of Peterson. Participants must be signed up no later than one hour prior to the start of the event. Back by popular demand, the festivities will once again include four bicycle tours, in coordination with HaveFunBiking and The Fit Tourist. The routes vary and include a 15, 35, 65, and 100 mile options. Sag support and refreshment stops will be provided. The cost of the event is $25 per rider and it begins at 7am on Saturday.

Also back is JAKES Take Aim, an inflatable trailer and indoor BB gun shooting range. The fully enclosed and noise-free range made its debut in Peterson last year and was wildly popular. The product of the National Wild Turkey Federation and Daisy Outdoor Products, its goal is to promote hunting heritage, especially among youth. It is sponsored by the Peterson Legion and will be located next to the legion. As always, the weekend’s events are highlighted by a varied collection of Norwegian artisan demonstrations with the Vesterheim Museum. Other artists include glass works, books, wire art, wood carvings, fiber art and more. The

Peterson Museum will have storytellers on hand to share the history of the town and Amish buggy rides will also be running, at a $1 cost. All will run from 10am4:30pm. Norwegian Folk Dancers, Det norske Folkedanslaget, will do demonstrations from 11am until 1pm and the Grand Parade will kick off at 1pm. For those looking to whet their whistle, several vendors will be on hand to offer mouth-watering bites, beginning at 11am. Other highlights of the weekend will include: • Friday night dance, featuring Troubleshooter

• 25-mile tractor ride • Mens’ Softball • Kids’ train rides in the park • Saturday night dance featuring Music on Wheels • Grace Lutheran Church Service - 10am Sponsors of this year’s “Good Old Days” include the Sons of Norway, Thrivent Financial, Valley Crest Riders, Tri-Country Electric, and the Fillmore County Journal.

Mom’s Guilty Little Pleasures As a kid, I remember looking in the fridge and being totally grossed out when seeing a jar of pickled herring staring back at me. It got worse when I searched the freezer for chocolate chip ice cream and found, instead, the grownup flavors of maple nut or cherry nut. Yuck. What were my parents thinking?! My taste buds were pretty well stuck in a pizza and chicken nuggets mode back then and many foods that my parents liked fell into my food dictionary as “old people food.” So either I am getting older or food options are getting better. I will go for the latter. Considering that I had never tried an avocado until I was thirty, it is shocking to me that they hold their own on the top of my guilty pleasures list. My family will not eat them so I can leave

them on the counter all week without the risk of them being eaten. Of course, the same cannot be said for chocolate or cookies. So, what is in your food dictionary? Do you stick to the same things that make you happy or do you venture out to see if you can add another item to your list? While I am exploring and trying new foods, I have been quite a curmudgeon when it came to my favorite drink. There was no substitute or new flavor that could sway me away---just go home Mello Yellow. For over 25 years, my guilty pleasure has been Diet Dew. Oh how I love that bubbly fruit

Triple-Layer Rhubarb Dessert

CRUST 1 cup all-purpose flour 1/3 cup powdered sugar 1/3 cup margarine or butter FILLING 1 1/4 cups granulated sugar 1/3 cup all-purpose flour 1/2 tsp. salt 2 eggs, slightly beaten 3 cups chopped rhubarb (fresh or frozen) TOPPING 3/4 cup all-purpose flour 1/2 cup granulated sugar 1/4 tsp. cinnamon 1/3 cup margarine or butter DIRECTIONS: CRUST In a medium bowl, combine the flour and the powdered sugar. Using a pastry blender, or a fork, cut in the margarine or butter, until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Press into bottom of an ungreased, 9” x 9” baking dish. Bake at 350° F for 10 minutes. Note: Crust will be only partially done. FILLING In a medium bowl, combine the filling ingredients and blend well using a fork. Pour over the partially baked crust. TOPPING In another medium bowl, combine the flour, sugar and the cinnamon. Use a pastry blender, or a fork, and cut in the margarine or butter, until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle the crumbs over the filling. Bake at 350° F for an additional 55 - 60 minutes, or until the topping is light golden brown and the rhubarb is tender. Cut dessert into squares and serve warm with yogurt or whipped cream.

flavored drink. And, since I do not drink coffee, soda has been my morning beverage of choice. I justified my addiction by noting that I do not have other vices so what was wrong with a little pop? After all, I was not spending my time out boozing, cheating, or gambling so a little Diet Dew was O.K….right? My habit was to drink around three to four cans of pop a day until a friend mentioned to me that carbonation is not good for you and actually expands your stomach. Well, there it was…cue music and the heavens open! The answer to those extra pounds and the larger stomach I was carrying around! So, much to my disbelief, I said goodbye to my favorite beverage this past April and replaced it with water. It has been a boring and uneventful change to say the least. The fruit flavored waters give me heartburn, so those are out. And, yes, I said heartburn…gosh, I am getting old. Plain, noncarbonated, and unflavored water and I have started a not so exciting lovehate relationship and cheating has crossed my mind. The pounds have not dropped off like everyone says they will so my next big step will be adding exercise back into my life. However, I am less hungry all of the time, and the caffeine that I thought kept me going each day actually made me groggy and, I have more energy without it. Do I still crave pop? Yes. My morning ritual of stopping at the convenience store in Chatfield to pick up my drink and a snack is just as pleasurable as it used to be. Expecting another uneventful experience, I trudged in for a bottled water from their cooler and what do I see? Someone had put a can of Diet Dew in that slot instead! Was it fate? Were we meant to be together again? Oh the temptation! But, I quickly banished those thoughts and reached around it and grabbed water. After all, a few more weeks and I will be out of the rhubarb and on my way to more challenges. Hey, speaking of rhubarb...try this one. A little more work but well worth it.

Old Bank Art Gallery Opens in Whalan, Minn. The Grand Opening for the Old Bank Art Gallery in Whalan, Minn. will be June 22, 2013, from 1:00 – 5:00. The Lanesboro Chamber of Commerce will hold a ribboncutting ceremony at 1:30. The public is warmly welcome. The current gallery pieces are by all four retired Gilbert siblings. Opening a gallery in the old bank has received enthusiastic response. Visitors are often interested in the old vault and a bit of history about the building. Elaine creates jewelry and loves to tramp through woods and ditches near her home in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, collecting ‘weeds’ and flowers to arrange in old vases and picture frames. Diane worked with youth theatres in Rochester, Minn. making puppets and masks, so creating stories with figures is a natural progression. She uses clay, wire and stripes of cloth and resides in Whalan. Leon is a wood turner from Santa Rosa, Calif. He turns many varieties of wood into bowls, platters, vases, wine bottle stoppers and mug lids. His latest piece is a beautiful urn for pet ashes. Ivan, from Arden Hills,

Minn. creates tree sculptures with copper wire. The foliage is created by several methods to suggest different types of trees. He does commissions and has exhibited in many art shows in Minnesota and Wisconsin. As the gallery moves forward , there will be opportunity for other artists to show and/or sell their art. Demonstrations and mini classes are being considered for future weekends. Check and Culture/Galleries for special events or contact Diane, 507-467-2535, dmknigh@

Dairy Night on the Farm will be SEMAC awards arts grants On May 21, 2013, the Board Austin Artworks Festival. held June 29 of Directors of the Southeast- •Austin Community By Barb Jeffers Dairy night on the Farm will be held on June 29, 2013 at Boettcher Dairy near Wykoff, Minn. Curtis and Cheryle Boettcher are in partnership with their sons Brian and Chad to run Boettcher Dairy and are looking forward to hosting the event. This is not the first event they have held with the American Dairy Association (ADA). Twenty years ago the Boettchers hosted the first ever Dairy Breakfast on the Farm. This year’s Dairy night on the Farm will feature the American Dairy Association serving cheeseburgers, Hamburgers, Macaroni Salad, Beans and of course, milk, to visitors. The ADA will also have their malt and ice cream wagon at the event to serve visitors their frozen favorites. The kids will surely enjoy the bounce house that will be on site

as well as other activities. There will be calves available for the children to see and interact with, and the kids will get to tour the farm to see how a dairy farm operates and find out where the milk they drink comes from. 2013 Dairy Princess Margaret Alexander will also participate in Dairy Night on the Farm. Margaret is the daughter of Tom and Ruth Alexander of Canton, Minn. Margaret was crowned 2013 Dairy Princess on April 6, 2013. The Boettchers are expecting a very large crowd as the farm is equipped with robotic milkers, and many people in the area are not familiar with robotics and have expressed their anxiousness to see the robots milk the cows. Boettcher Dairy is located at 18688 State Highway 16, Wykoff, Minn. The hours of Dairy Night on the Farm will be 5:30 - 8:30 pm.

MOOCs: Satisfying Your Intellectual Curiosity For the individuals out there who love to learn for the sake of learning and expanding your intellectual knowledge through educational opportunities, you already know that you can educate yourself in an infinite number of ways, whether it’s through reading, observation, or a handson approach. Classroom settings often require you to pay fees, but now you have the option to explore thousands of MOOCs (pronounced m-o-o-k-s). MOOCs are Massive Open Online Courses that are for nondegree seeking people who just wish to learn. MOOCs are completely online and do not provide you with academic credit upon completion. They’re just meant to teach and satisfy the curiosity of the intellectually-inclined population. However, MOOCs are often provided through universities as a qualified instructor

leads the virtual course. The only requirement to participate would be to have an internet connection. MOOCs are available globally and teach students through traditional tactics such as readings, videos, and problem-solving sets. MOOCs commonly also provide a forum for students, professors, and teacher assistants to build a communication community. Although the actual completion rates for MOOCs are significantly low, this does not have an impact on MOOC students as the classes are completely voluntary. MOOCs allow for individuals to learn and explore in a more informal setting. They’re not as organized as your typical classroom experience, but nonetheless, if you find fascination in a subject area, finding a MOOC that caters to your interests is totally worthwhile. Doesn’t the expression ‘knowledge is power’ come into play here?

Rural recycle dumpsters at risk of being yanked By Karen Reisner Commissioners discussed at the June 4 county board meeting the prevalent misuse of dumpsters which are provided so that residents can drop off recyclable materials at convenient locations. The containers are mostly used by rural citizens to deposit their recyclable waste. There are containers located near Amherst, Minn. Canton, Minn. Chatfield, Minn. Cherry Grove, Minn. Peterson, Minn. and Spring Valley, Minn. Commissioner Marc Prestby made it clear that all of the locations have seen some dumping of all kinds of garbage that is not recyclable. He stressed that if this abuse continues the containers for recyclable materials at Spring Valley will be pulled on July 1. Spring Valley has seen the most illegal dumping of non-recyclable materials. Sixteen yards of non-recyclable waste per week has been picked up at the Spring Valley site. Prestby said removing the dumpsters will get the word out

fast. Commissioner Tom Kaase said the dumping of non-recyclable garbage is illegal and a misdemeanor punishable by a fine or up to one year in jail. Dumping of non-recyclable materials at these sites is a violation of the Fillmore County Solid Waste Ordinance. Commissioner Chuck Amunrud added if the dumping continues, the only practical thing to do is to remove the dumpsters. Other Business In Brief • The Sentence to Serve agreement was renewed as recommended by Sheriff Daryl Jensen through June 30, 2015. County Coordinator Karen Brown said the rate will be the same and no changes were made in the agreement. Chairman Randy Dahl called it a good program. • After considerable discussion the Highway Account Technician Lead position was reclassified with a title of Highway-Airport Office Manager. Commissioner Duane Bakke said this position is in lieu of

an Assistant County Engineer. He said the change is specific to the Highway Department. Amunrud agreed it is a unique position. Dahl commented that an Assistant County Engineer would require a significantly higher wage, adding there is a cost savings. • The half time custodian positions of John Dollar and Erik Paulson were each increased to full time custodian positions. There will be one half time employee left in the Maintenance Department. Bakke noted that the use of several half time employees has not worked well. • An access permit to CSAH 12 was approved for Andy and Esther Gingerich, Section 13 Amherst Township. The access will serve as a direct access to a new school house, which was approved through the CUP process two months ago. Zoning Administrator Chris Graves admitted he normally would not approve the access because there is another access within a quarter

approved. The poor condition of CR 115 was also discussed. Because it is a three digit road, local levy dollars would have to pay for any repair work. Bakke asked county engineer Ron Gregg about what it would take to convert it to a two digit road, which would then be eligible for state aid. Gregg described the process to get a road on the state aid system, noting it is harder to add a road than to take one off of the system.

Make it great, make it grow By Kirsten Zoellner So what’s in a name, or in a brand for that matter? One can hardly think of a city other than New York when you see a big red heart preceded by the letter “I.” What about our small towns? Can they build a lasting public image? Can they build a strong identity that instantly captures who they are to the rest of the world? The Rushford-Peterson Area Branding Council thinks so. They’ve been diligently working for over two years to find what it is that makes the tri-city area a place to live, work, and play. Pouring over years of previous surveys, studies, and presentations, including that of brand-

ing expert Roger Brooks, the council is now on the verge of revealing the Rushford-Peterson area brand. “This is people equity. We need to inspire our communities to take the opportunity to take something and make it great, make it grow,” says council member Terri Benson. “We need to plant the seed.” Much thought and foresight has been put into the creation of the brand. The optimistic group has refined the past two years worth of study into a condensed summary, which at the end will deliver what everyone has been waiting for; the brand itself. The council is keen to share

its vision with the area, but they’re equally keen to see the communities take ownership of the brand and make it grow into an economic and social result. “We need to get them thinking, ‘How, when, and where can I use this?’” added Benson. One thing is certain; the promotion of the brand needs to be consistent and incorporated into more than just a slogan or logo for tourists. “This will provide vitality to our community, along with economic growth and development,” notes council member Gail Boyum. “We need to bring the brand to life.” The brand will serve as a sort of umbrella covering the area in which it serves. The process of brand-building can take years, but it has to start somewhere. “It needs to benefit the entire com-

duced during the shattering. However, we continue to purchase food in glass containers, but most likely not because we enjoy the challenge of a broken container now and then. There is an excellent chance that most of the food items you purchase in glass containers are also be found in metal containers, but many of us prefer the purer taste of food from glass. A lot of us also like to see those jumbo stuffed olives, sauerkraut, and cute

baby dills prior to purchasing. Some historians believe the Mesopotamians were creating a form of glass around 3500 BC. That’s a few years before the invention of plastic. As long as there is sand, we have the raw material for glass, but perhaps we shouldn’t use any more of it than necessary. We must make every effort to recycle as much glass as possible and keep it out of the landfill. Food and beverage glass is 100 percent recyclable. Glass

The FCJ reaches over 12,000 household each week. munity and future generations and have a unified message that pulls us together,” adds council member Peggi Redalen. One challenge the council faced was branding an area of this size. The council discovered that no commercial branding expert has ever created an established brand with a community population smaller than 3,500 people. Essentially, the council was breaking new ground in brand-building. A goal of the group has been to find an individual brand that will integrate well within the communities, both in personal and economic growth, for residents, potential residents, as well as tourists. In doing this, however, it’s key to them to maintain the individual character of each of the communities involved.

“We need to find a balance. To not singly drive towards the tourism industry, but long term to develop our communities,” stressed Benson. “The challenge isn’t that there’s not enough money or ideas. We need an energy to drive it, to say, ‘Here’s your inspiration. Run with it!” Monday, June 17, at 6:30pm, the council intends to present its findings and officially announce the brand. A PowerPoint presentation will cover their summary of the in-depth study before launching into the brand, brand strategy, the tagline, and logo. A question and answer session will follow. The location of the presentation will be announced in next week’s paper. “We have a rich area, a culture,” added Benson. “We need to celebrate it.”

can be recycled over and over with no loss of quality to the new product. Glass beverage bottles and all jars that have contained food such as pickles, spaghetti sauce, jams, jellies, olives, or sauerkraut are recyclable. The machine in the Twin Cities that strongly dislikes plastic bags wrapping around its shafts and gears, separates recyclables as they proceed down a conveyor belt. As I have mentioned before, this machine is more than capable of separating different colors of glass. After the glass has been separated by color, it will be crushed into a material called cullet. Once crushed, the glass cullet is mixed with sand and melted in a furnace to create molten glass. It is then recast into new food and beverage containers. The clear glass is used for new clear containers, the green for new green containers, and of course, the amber glass is used to make new amber containers. Much of our glass is recycled at Anchor Glass Company in Shakopee. Broken glass is sometimes crushed into small pieces and mixed with asphalt to cover our state’s roadways. Some very creative people are making attractive holiday ornaments, garden art, and even

some fashionable jewelry from recycled bottles. However, please keep in mind, not all glass is recyclable. Ceramic cups, window panes, canning jars, mirrors, incandescent light bulbs, crystal drinking glasses, dishes and ovenware, including Pyrex glass are landfill garbage. These are not recyclable due to their color or their melting points. For the safely of your garbage collectors, neighbors, and pets, please check with your hauler before throwing broken glass into garbage bags or just stacking it on the curb. Recycling one ton of glass saves 1,330 pounds of sand, 433 pounds of soda ash, 433 pounds of limestone, and 151 pounds of feldspar. This saves more than one ton of your natural resources. With all the deserts on the earth, there is a very slim chance we will ever run out of sand, but the recycling of glass reduces related air pollution by 50 percent over making glass from raw materials, as well as 25 to 32 percent of the energy used to make glass for the first time. Today, thanks to you, most bottles and jars contain at least twenty-five percent recycled glass.

Preston Ecumenical Progressive Dinner to address human trafficking By Mitch Walbridge A huge problem in today’s society plagues the United States as human trafficking has taken the title of the “fastest growing crime in the U.S.,” second only to illegal drug trafficking. The illegal industry is estimated to secure nearly $40 billion each year, which shows how severe of a problem human trafficking is. Today, human trafficking is often defined as the modern day form of slavery in which human beings are traded for the purposes of sexual exploitation or forced labor. Individuals,

including men, women, and even children are bought, sold, and smuggled as they are illegally traded in this horrific industry. In the trading process it is not uncommon for the victims to be beaten, starved, or worse. According to the 2012 Minnesota Trafficking in Minnesota Report to the Legislature, the U.S. State Department estimates that between 600,000 and 800,000 people are trafficked across international borders every day. The State Department also estimates that between 14,500 and 17,500

people are trafficked into the United States each year. Human trafficking commonly occurs in the state of Minnesota as well. The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) ranks Minnesota as the 13th largest center for human trafficking of children. Because the problem has hit so close to home, there are numerous efforts to battle the problem human trafficking in Minnesota, including one to be held in Preston, Minn. on June 12. The 39th annual Preston Ecumenical Progressive Dinner

Prevented Plant and Cover Crops By Jerrold Tesmer, Extension Educator for Fillmore/Houston Counties Jill Sackett, Local Extension Educator, Conservation Agronomist, has passed along this information on opting for Prevented Plant acres this spring. Be sure to talk to your insur- Jerrold Tesmer ance agent and Farm Service Agency before choosing and planting a cover crop. If you choose the 60 percent payment option, you CANNOT

graze or hay the cover crop until after November 1. It is my understanding that you can terminate it via tillage or herbicide at any time, however. If you choose the second crop / 35 percent payment option, you CAN graze or hay the cover crop. Check with insurance and FSA on this before making any decisions. It is also my understanding that your FSA office should have a list of acceptable cover crops. These lists can vary from state to state and even county to county. Most will NOT include anything that can be insured (i.e. - alfalfa, soybeans). Again, check with insurance and FSA on this before making any decisions.

Cover crop seed availability is already low and prices are already high. If you know you are going to use a cover crop, order it and get it delivered as soon as you can. Farmers have had to make tough cropping decisions do to the extreme spring weather conditions and will have to continue to do so this summer and fall. As I have searched for information for various people these are some of the sources of information that I have found useful. Hopefully some of them will also be helpful to you. The University of Minnesota Extension website http://www., has a sec-

will feature a presentation titled Human Trafficking: Stop the Silence and will take place on Wednesday evening to bring more awareness to human trafficking and what can be done to stop it. The Preston Ecumenical Progressive Dinner begins at 6:00pm at the United Methodist Church in Preston for a salad course. Attendees will advance to Christ Lutheran Church at 6:45pm for the main course. Lastly, at 7:30pm attendees will meet at St. Columban’s Catholic Church for dessert and to listen

to the featured guest speakers. This year’s speakers will be Sister Anne Walch and Sister Briana McCarthy of the Sisters of St. Francis in Rochester, Minn. The Sisters will address human trafficking in a way that will allow the public to learn about the gruesome industry and how to help end its presence in our state and around the world. The public is welcome, including both men and women, to attend this year’s event in efforts to cease human trafficking in today’s society.

tion Extension News. Two useful articles are “Choosing ACRE or DCP” and “Website for Forage Shortage, Late Planting Issues.” From that website you can move to Extension’s “Alfalfa Weather Damage and Emergency Forages” website at: www.extension.umn. edu/agriculture/crops/springissues and Extension’s “Late Planting” website at late-planting. If postemergence application of a soil-applied residual herbicide is considered, be sure to check the herbicide label for any crop height restrictions. Maximum height restrictions can range from five inch corn to 40 inch corn, depending on the product. A helpful table from the University of Illinois summarizes

these: http://bulletin.ipm.illinois. edu/?p=745 Iowa State University was an excellent source for “Delayed and Prevented Planting Provisions” FM 1859 https://www.extension. a1-57.pdf. If you want to look at forage related information, the University of Wisconsin Extension has a Focus on Forage website with forage crop information: Sometimes it takes a little digging to find the exact information you need, but if you contact me at the Fillmore County Extension Office 507-765-3896 or the Houston County Extension Office 507-725-5807, or, I will attempt to assist you.

Join Habitat for Humanity, neighbors and volunteers to celebrate the completetion of another home Habitat for Humanity Winona – Fillmore County invites you to a community celebration to welcome the Teri Root family to their new home. On Monday, June 17 at 5:30 pm, volunteers, Habitat for Humanity representatives, members of the community and the excited partner family will gather at 165 Niagara Court in Harmony, Minn. to honor the hard work, the generous financial backing and the community support that made this home possible. A brief program is planned for 5:30 pm The homebuyer— Teri Root and her children—are more than a little eager to move into their new home. She has completed 300 hours of “sweat

equity,” helping to build the home, a basic tenet of Habitat for Humanity. They will repay the zero-interest mortgage over a period of 30 years, illustrating Habitat for Humanity’s objective to give families a “hand up” rather than a “hand out.” Immediately following the dedication, volunteers and donors who have supported this house in Harmony during the last two years are invited for a Volunteer Appreciation and friends of Habitat picnic serving brats, hot dogs and root beer floats. “This dedication opens a new door for the Root family. The volunteers, donors and other supporters who will be on hand

to recognize and celebrate the positive change this home will bring to this family are in for a real treat. A special presentation of a hand-signed quilt will be made to the Root family. The quilt has been signed by hundreds of area community members and sewn and quilted by area friends of Habitat.

We are delighted that this family will be able to spend the summer getting settled into their new home,” said Megan Grebe, Community Development Coordinator, Habitat for Humanity Winona -Fillmore Counties.
