The course winds around Mora and throughout Kanabec County with water, food and toilet stops along the course. The event also features a free bikers’ lunch at the end of the tour. The 50-mile tour qualifies for the Mora Classic Series and the 25-mile distance qualifies for the Motion Series. For more information see www.moraclassicseries. org.

Downtown Mora has a new sweet spot with the opening of Mick and Mary’s Candy Shoppe on Aug. 17. This husband and wife team specialize in nostalgic candy to satisfy the sweet tooth, and for adults, perhaps help recapture a taste of childhood, all at 114 S. Union Street. Joe (better known as Mick) and Mary McCarty moved to Mora about two years ago. Originally from the Twin Cities area, they loved to vacation up north. They were looking for an area that was close enough to the cities to visit with their kids and grandkids, but far enough from the city to enjoy peace, quiet and lake living. Mora turned out to be the ideal place. Mick had retired from his

job as stockbroker and government car dealer. Mary commuted awhile longer to her job as executive director of a senior housing complex, eventually retiring and joining her husband to enjoy the quiet life. Well, almost. One evening Mick was watching a show on PBS about a woman who had opened her own candy shop. At first he thought it was kind of a crazy idea. Then, the more he thought about it, Mick said, “That would be a lot of fun.” He shared his growing dream with Mary, and they began considering all the benefits to running a small business together, including what a great way it would be to get to know people in the community. They started

FINES Cost of a speeding violation will vary by county, but it will typically cost a driver more than $110 with court fees for traveling 10 mph over the limit. Fines double for those traveling 20 mph over the limit, and fines for speeding in a work zone are more than $300. A driver can lose their license for six months for going 100 mph or more.

Increased stopping distance. Less time for driver response for crash avoidance. SAFETY TIPS Put the distractions away. Distracted driving is a leading factor in crashes in Minnesota. The driver needs to focus 100 percent of their attention on the road. Move over for construction workers and their vehicles if there is room to do so. Never drive impaired. Wear your seatbelt as it can save your life. Check out 511mn.org for road closures, detours and traffic incidents.

Can social media be “fixed”?

T

his week, executives from Twitter, Facebook and Google testified before Congress. Again. This was the third congressional hearing this year where the internet giants were grilled on their content policies, their privacy and security practices and their role in democracy. It’s been a rough couple of years for social media platforms. They’ve come under fire for so many different things it can be hard to remember all of them. To recap: For enabling First Russian propagandists to influence our presidential election Amendment and terrorist organizations to Center find new recruits. For allowing fake news stories to go viral. Lata Nott For exacerbating political polarization by trapping their users iin “fi fillter b bbl bubbles.” For giving hate mongers and conspiracy theorists a platform to reach a wider audience. For filtering or down-ranking conservative viewpoints. For collecting private user data and selling it to the highest bidder. For siphoning profits away from struggling local news organizations. The social media platforms are taking various actions to mitigate these problems. But every potential solution seems to bring forth another unanticipated consequence. YouTube is currently trying to debunk conspiracy videos on its site by displaying links to more accurate information right alongside of them — but there’s concern that the presence of a link to an authoritative source will make a video seem more legitimate, even if the text and link directly contradict the video. Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey has expressed a desire to break up his users’ filter bubbles by injecting alternative viewpoints in their feeds. But new research suggests that exposing people to opposing political views may actually cause them to double down on their own — ironically, actually increasing political polarization. Facebook instituted a system for users to flag questionable news stories for review by their fact-checkers — but soon ran into the problem that users would falsely report stories as “fake news” if they disagreed with the premise of the story, or just wanted to target the specific publisher. Some doubt the sincerity behind these efforts. As former Reddit CEO Ellen Pao says, “[S]ocial media companies and the leaders who run them are rewarded for focusing on reach and engagement, not for positive impact or for protecting subsets of users from harm.” In other words, what’s good for a company’s bottom line and what’s good for society as a whole are often at odds with each other. It’s no wonder that the government is looking to step into the fray. If the numerous congressional hearings don’t make that clear, a proposed plan to regulate social media platforms that leaked from Senator Mark Warner’s office last month ought to. Just last week, President Trump announced that he wanted to take action against Google and Twitter for allegedly not displaying conservative media in his search

Presidential news is cringe-worthy To the editor, Are you embarrassed yet? Almost every day now, I find out about something the president has done or said that makes me ill. I’m just going to mention four of the things that I think are cringe-worthy. He calls the press the enemy of the people and claims that they peddle “fake news.” One of the things important to a democracy is press that has no influence from the government. In many nations, the press is controlled by

the government and can only say things that the government allows. We need a free and active press. Freedom of the press was important enough to the framers of the constitution that it was in the first amendment. His constant verbal assault on the press is reminiscent of behavior of dictators. I think he attacks the press just to protect his ego. Secondly, he has no moral compass. A few examples of this are: he cheated business partners out of money he owed them, he swindled students who thought they would get a business education at his “university,” he admitted he sexually assaulted women because of his celebrity status, and he has paid off women with whom he has had extramarital affairs. Not exactly “leadership” material. He stole our election by colluding with our enemy. Also, the Russians laundered money through the Trump organization. In addition, he is beholden to them as the Russians have bailed him out financially. He will never admit SEE LETTERS, PAGE 5

results. It’s unlikely that the president would be able to do much about that, just as it’s unlikely that Congress would be able to force Facebook to say, ban all fake news stories from its platform. Twitter, Facebook and Google are all private companies, and the First Amendment prohibits government officials from limiting or compelling speech by private actors. So what can the government do? It can encourage (and, if necessary, regulate) these companies to be more transparent. It’s shocking how little we know about the algorithms, content moderation practices and internal policies that control what information we receive and how we communicate with one another. It’s reckless that we only become aware of these things when something catastrophic happens.

The last thing I will mention is that he has made lying the new norm. A Toronto newspaper has a list of 2,436 false statements that have been made by the president. They call their list “false claims” as they indicate that he might have been confused by making some of them or simply ignorant. They include an explanation about the truth for each of these lies. We know politicians have lied before. But in the past, when caught in a lie, most politicians have faced some sort of repercussion. Not him. He just doubles down.

Fall lawn care tips

Spring and summer are the seasons associated with landscaping and lawn care, but fall is the best time for homeowners to address the landscaping around their homes. Fall lawn care differs from spring and summer lawn care. Take advantage of the welcoming weather of fall to address any issues. • Keep mowing. Continue to mow lawns so long as grass is growing. Lower mower blades so the grass is cut shorter but no blade of grass should ever be trimmed by more than one-third. Lowering the blades allows more sunlight to reach the grass. • Remove leaves as they fall. Leaves left to sit on the lawn will suffocate grass by forming a wall that deprives the lawn of sunlight and oxygen. The result is dead grass and fungal disease. Leaves may not need to be raked every day, but

periodically rake and remove leaves. • Repair bald spots. Lawns may end up with bald spots come September. Autumn is a great time to repair them. Lawn repair mixes contain mulch, seed and fertilizer to repair bald spots, which can recover in seven days. Before applying products, remove dead grass and loosen the top soil. Follow any manufacturer instructions as well. • Aerate the turf. Aerating reduces soil compacting, allowing fertilizer and water to reach the lawn’s roots. Many can aerate their own turf, have soil tested so you know what to add after lawn has been aerated. Gardening centers and home improvement stores sell soil testing kits that measure the pH of soil. Fall lawn care provides a great reason to spend some time in the yard before the arrival of winter.

Libraries welcome Strings Across the Ocean Folk musicians from Minnesota, Sweden to share the stage CONTRIBUTED EAST CENTRAL REGIONAL LIBRARY

East Central Regional Library presents Strings Across the Ocean, featuring Minnesota-based musician Ross Sutter and Sweden’s most prominent folk musicians, Anders and Maria Larsson, at shows coming up at libraries in Mora, Isle, Hinckley, McGregor, North Branch, Milaca and Wyoming. The trio is joining in a collaboration that tells the story of a couple immigrating from Sweden to America. The show features a wide variety of musical instruments including the string bass, accordion, limberjack, guitar, drum set, fiddle, nyckelharpa, recorder and lots of singing. Here is the schedule: • Monday, Sept. 17 10:30 a.m. — Mora Public Library 2 p.m. — Mille Lacs Lake Community Library/Isle • Tuesday, Sept. 18 10:30 a.m. — Hinckley Public Library 2 p.m. — McGregor Public Library • Wednesday, Sept. 19 2 p.m. — North Branch Area Library • Thursday, Oct. 4 10:30 a.m. — Milaca Community Library 2 p.m. — Wyoming Area Library Anders and Maria Larsson ran their own record label and culture house in Malung, Sweden, where Anders was a vocal coach at the renowned folk music education course Malungs Folkhögskola. They now live in Malmo in the south of Sweden and work as freelance musicians and teachers. Using an array of traditional instruments, the duo creates a sound that is both modern and traditional at the same time. Sutter is well known as a singer of Scandinavian, Scottish and Irish songs and for his wide repertoire of American traditional and popular songs. With a degree in music education, Sutter has years of experience working with children and has developed many popular and time-tested school residence and workshop programs on a variety of engaging themes. Sutter and the Larssons met at a music festival in the United States, where they discovered a musical kinship that they have enjoyed exploring on two Swedish tours and one American tour. Strings Across the Ocean is an entertaining musical and cultural experience for all ages and audiences. This project was funded with money from Minnesota’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.

Esther Piszczek demonstrates Zentangle at the History Center in Mora.

The Kanabec County Art Association had a perfectly delightful day on Monday, Aug. 20, at the Kanabec History Center when artist Esther Piszczek demonstrated a class on “Zentangle.” Ten local artists participated in the class and were introduced to a new method of pattern drawing. Zentangle is a non-representational, contemplative way of drawing complex patterns ‘one stroke at a time.’ The class created beautiful art on three and one half inch square paper tiles using pen, ink and pencil shading. Esther Piszczek is a certified Zentangle teacher and resides in Duluth.

Professional gossips are known; urged to use discretion hereafter 125 YEARS AGO (1893) C.E. Williams has a crew of men at work laying new sidewalks. Hans Nyberg, living west of Mora lost thirteen stacks of hay last Saturday by fire. C. E. Williams attended the grand jury at Duluth this week as a witness against Ross, the horse thief. James Goldin, has gone to St. Cloud to take charge of an extra gang that will work with the steam shovel. The heavens opened up Sunday afternoon and the heaviest rain storm of the season prevailed for about an News from hour. The rain was badly needed. The roof of L. E. Conger’s drugstore Yesteryear was peppered with holes by hail in Sunday’s storm. The roofing was Matt Anderson last made of manila leather paper which was recommended to be very durable, but in this instance it was not. The county commissioners yesterday appointed S. B. Molander to the office of county auditor. Mr. Molander’s familiarity with the duties of the office will soon place it in shape again. The Ann River Logging company sent a large crew of men up to the woods Monday morning to watch the hay stacks from fire and prepare for winter work. Wages for woodsmen will probably be very low next winter. Mrs. Andrew Norum requests the Times to express her sincere thanks to the people of Mora and Kanabec county for the sympathy and assistance extended her during her recent affliction. The District court convened again yesterday and after issuing special venires for 34 jurors the panel was finally completed and Lundeen placed on trial for his life. The courtroom was crowded all day with men from all parts of the county. The case will probably occupy two or three days more. John Olson, of Brunswick, fell from a load of hay last week and was seriously injured, but will recover. The scandalizing back-biting tongues of chronic gossipers appear to be on the wag in this community, and too, without regard to persons or whatever position they occupy in society. How any person can stand up and wilfully tell an utter falsehood about a friend

SINGLE-GAME

or neighbor passeth our understanding. The professional gossipers of this village are known; they have been quiet for a time, and it had been hoped that they never would take up their baneful vocation again, but it seems that like a besotted tippier they have returned to their cups. Should this item be read by any of them, and we are certain it will be read, we hope it will cause them to use more discretion hereafter. “Notice to Cattle Owners:” Notice is hereby given, that on and after the date of this notice all cattle found trespassing upon the Conger field, adjoining Lake Mora, will be impounded and the law against them enforced. “Sheriff Nelson Takes a Bride:” Mr. N. E. Nelson, of this village and Miss Ena Nelson, of Brunswick were quietly married on the 2nd inst, by H. Ekman, Esq., Justice of the Peace. The young people are well known in the county, Nels being our popular sheriff, and their many friends will join in wishing them a happy and prosperous future. 100 YEARS AGO (1918) “County Fair To Open Next Week; Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, Sept. 16, 17, 18 and 19:” The Management of the County Fair will present this year an entertaining program which is going to please both old and young. Martin’s Fireworks Company will present what is known as a Liberty Program of the most gorgeous and spectacular production. Each night will have different displays and the Fair is to be congratulated on securing night Fireworks of the magnitude and high quality indicated by the commendations of the press at various point where the Martin’s Fireworks Company have exhibited. Moving pictures will also be presented on each night in front of the Grandstand as well as the Happy Harrison’s Animal Circus in one act, and the Two Famous Christensens, presenting their high-class Voloplane Drop and spectacular gymnastics. Music throughout the evening will be furnished by the Mora Booster Band. Singing by the well known Odin Singers of Grasston. “Bans Penny Nuisance:” The post office department proposes to put a stop to the practice of rural route patrons of putting loose coins in mailboxes in lieu of postage upon letters. Mail carriers find it very difficult and annoying, especially during the winter months, to be obliged to pick loose pennies out of mailboxes and patrons of rural routes should avoid this practice. Postmasters at rural delivery offices and rural carriers are directed to bring to the attention of patrons that it is the desire of the Department that all first class mail matter deposited in rural mail boxes shall be stamped before being so deposited. 75 YEARS AGO (1943) “County Board Endorses Proposed County Hospital; Submits Question to Voters of County at Special Election To Be Held October 5:” The question of building a county hospital came to a head last Thursday when the county board in special session voted to submit the proposition to the voters of Kanabec county at a special election to be held Tuesday, October 5. The voters also will pass on the question of issuing short term bonds in a sum not to exceed $75,000 to pay the cost of the hospital and equipment in the event the vote is favorable. The estimated cost of a hospital with a 23 bed capacity is about $50,000. Estimated cost of equipment is $16,000. Although an authorized bond issue of $75,000 is submitted, if the proposition carries only enough bonds will be issued to cover the actual cost of the building and equipment. “Many People Visit Manufacturing Plant At Mora; Open House of Milk Dryers, Inc., Last Thursday Proves Interesting Event:” Several hundred people visited the Milk Dryers manufacturing plant last Thursday and inspected the operations of this important Mora industry. The visitors were much impressed with the size of the plant. Most of them had not visited

it before and did not realize Mora had an industry of such capacity. In the evening the business people of Mora were entertained at a dinner and speaking program at the creamery auditorium. E. Virgil Hall, president of the Mora Business Men’s association, acted as toastmaster. 50 YEARS AGO (1968) “Big Bear Killed Near Brook Park:” Sam Raines gets up early to get his cows from pasture for milking and off and on during the summer has seen a bear loitering about. The Raines live about 1/4 mile west of village near cemetery road. Last Friday about 5:15 a.m. both Mr. Raines and Paul Reynolds saw the bear. Paul, not having a good gun, called Reinhold Stieben who shot the bear. The bear, it is thought, was about six feet tall, weighing over 250 pounds, a young one. This may be the culprit who has been coming to the Phillips home in the southwest part of town some nights turning over pails, cans or whatever. “Course Offered In Modern Math For Parents:” A course in modern mathematics designed for parents will be offered by the Mora school. The eight-week course will cover all the latest trends and enable a parent to better understand the new concepts being brought home by their children who are studying modern mathematics. There is no charge for the course. Classes will meet one day a week for the eight week period, either on a Tuesday or a Thursday. Classes will run from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Joseph A. Johnson, elementary principal, points out that at least 20 parents must be enrolled before the course can be offered. 25 YEARS AGO (1993) “Open enrollment proves favorable:” As expected, the Ogilvie Schools’ student population is up this fall -- way up, in fact. How does two score and 15 sound? Whether or not the initial numbers hold up -- and at this early juncture, Superintendent Jerry Horgen definitely sounds skeptical -- they obviously bear at least two consequences: on the one hand, additional bodies in some already bloated classrooms; on the other, more dollars for their education. The most obvious explanation for such a dramatic increase in students is the presence of several relatively large classes, including this year’s kindergarten class -- especially when compared to the much smaller senior class which graduated last spring. School officials foresaw this disparity and, accordingly, predicted a greater enrollment this term. But what they neither expected nor could have predicted was the adding of pupils via Minnesota’s open enrollment law. In Ogilvie’s case, at least 18 students have, so far, chosen to transfer in from neighboring districts. “New Oslins, but business as usual:” It was the individually-owned, small business on which our country was founded, and it is just this business which has continued to be the backbone of our nation’s economy. When the future looks uncertain for even the profitable major corporations, and numbers have to be trimmed from the work forces, many of the small businesses remain stable. Oslin Lumber Company is an example of such a business, going into its 40th year in Mora, now in its third generation of Oslins. Oslin Lumber did not start out in Mora, however. In fact, it did not even start with Lumber. Emil Oslin, grandfather to the current owners, Craig, Curt and Gary Oslin, started out in potatoes. In the 1890s and early 1900s potatoes were Kanabec County’s big cash crop. As new land was broken, potatoes were sown. Several large potato warehouses were constructed throughout the area, including three in Quamba; one of which was owned by Oslin. Howard Oslin, son of Emil, recalls the time. “I remember when my dad had the potato warehouse, and the teams were lined up all through town. There might have been 100 teams waiting to unload their potatoes,” he said. “At 5 in the morning they would start coming; a lot would bring two loads a day...About six (train) carloads a day would go to New York. The potato crop, however, was not to remain profitable. Disease, most probably soft rot and blackleg, led to the decline of the crop. Prices also fell as larger potatoes were being raised elsewhere in soil more favorable to the tuber. Potato farmers turned to dairy, and Emil Oslin turned to the lumber industry. Buying a quarter-share in the Rudd Lumber yard of Quamba in 1927, Oslin successfully managed the yard while the other 16 Rudd Lumber yards closed during the Depression. Oslin bought another quarter in 1936, and then in 1940 acquired the remaining half of the company. Although twin sons Howard and Harold had been helping out at the lumber yard since being able to lift lumber, it was at this time they began to work for wages. MATT ANDERSON serves as a Kanabec History Center board member and shares his passion for history with others.

Love is an action not a reaction — even if unreturned

A

man called me having relationship problems. His wife was acting distant and stopped doing the things around the house that were her normal things. He made some changes for two weeks and she did not seem to be responding. This man had figured out he needed to change his actions, but his motive was so she Focus on would change and start holding up her part of Faith the relationship, and not leave him. So we Rick Marcy focused on why we do loving things for the people in our lives. Do we do acts of kindness and love to get the other per-

son to do things or because we want to bring them joy in their life? Do we care about their joy? Do we do loving things because they do them in return? What happens when they return none of our affection? Romans 5:6-8 says “For while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. For one will scarcely die for a righteous person—though perhaps for a good person one would dare even to die—but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” And John 15:12- 16 contains this: “This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, that someone lays down his life for his friends.” “You did not choose me, but I chose you.” Jesus showed us that true love is what

you do when you get nothing back. True love is what you do when the other person has nothing to give you. We have nothing to give for God’s love and can do nothing to earn it. Jesus showed His love by giving His life on the cross even while we are fighting against Him. He chose to love us, not in response to us, but in spite of us. It is this type of love I challenged this man to have for his wife by doing the following things. He should understand that she is beautiful and valuable not because of what she can do for him but because she is. She is worthy of all he can do for her even if she never returns it. He should make her joy and happiness the most important thing, not his own comfort. He needs to make a choice to love her. Love is an action not a reaction.

He should stop responding to what she does good or bad and should choose to act in love towards her. He should realize that love is not an emotion we feel but an action we choose to do. Finally, he should not expect to make some changes and have her snap out of it in a week. I heard from him later, that after our talk he realized he had a long way to go in learning to love his wife. The truth is most of us have a long way to go in learning to love the people in our lives- to love as Jesus loved. We need to ask ourselves if we are truly loving people. True love is a choice.

Lions hold traction, stuff Huskies 28-6 BY JAYSON PAUTZKE NEWS@MORAMINN.COM

The Ogilvie Lions football team continued its fine start to the 2018 season by defeating Isle 28-6 in Ogilvie last Friday night on a gorgeous night for high school football. The opening quarter saw both offenses struggle to get anything consistent going. The biggest play of the quarter came from Isle. Pinned deep in their own territory they completed a 48-yard pass from their own one-yard line. However, after that play the Lion defense stiffened and stuffed the Huskies on a fourth and seven. After that fine defensive stand, the Ogilvie ground game began to find its traction. The second quarter saw the Lions start grinding out good chunks of yards. Senior running back Jake Felde was doing a lot of the damage and eventually got the first score of the game with a two yard touchdown run. The two point conversion failed and the Lions held a 6-0 advantage. The Ogilvie defense made life tough for the Husky offense. The Lions run defense was stingy throughout the evening as they allowed only 64 rushing yards on 28 attempts for the game. After stuffing Isle again on a fourth down the Lions took over and once again methodically marched down the field. Jake Felde scored his second touchdown of the game with a thirteen yard scamper. Brady Harlan connected with Beau Burk for the two-point conver-

sion and the lead expanded to 14-0. Perhaps the biggest play of the game occurred on the last play of the first half. With Isle threatening to take some momentum into the halftime break, the Lions broke their heart. With one second left in the half it appeared that the Isle quarterback was going in for a touchdown, but a great strip of the football and subsequent recovery thwarted the potential touchdown. Ogilvie came out in the second half and continued its dominance on the ground. The Lions opening drive lasted nearly seven minutes and it ended with another Jake Felde touchdown. The five yard touchdown run was followed once again with a Harlan to Burk connection on the two point conversion making the score 22-0. Isle finally got on the board about half way through the fourth quarter. The Huskies talented quarterback used his legs and arm to help march them down the field to make it 22-6. Isle followed with a recovery on an on-side kick and all of a sudden it looked like the Huskies may get back into the game. But, as they did most of the night, the Lions defense stepped up and recovered a bad snap. The run game then took over again as the Lions ran time off the clock while getting chunks of yards. Gabe Gray had a number of good runs on the drive and he punctuated the

drive with a five yard touchdown run for the final margin of 28-6. Head coach Dave Halvorson was proud of his team’s effort, “The team played hard and kept competing the whole game and we were able to get playing time for lots of players to reward them for their hard work at practice. Both sides of the ball played hard and worked well together.” Ogilvie will take its 2-0 record on the road Friday,

Sept. 14. The Lions will get a stiff challenge as they travel to Cromwell (2-0) to challenge one of the traditional state powers in 9-man football in a 7 p.m. game. On the challenge of taking on Cromwell coach Halvorson said, “We will have to play mistake free football to be in the game with Cromwell but all we ask is they compete hard all game and the outcome will take care of itself.”

Captain Grace Harmon plays first singles during the Mustangs Sept. 6 home match versus Pine City.

No ‘drama’ tennis touts mental tenacity, team unity BY SCOTT MCKINNEY NEWS@MORAMINN.COM

The Mora Mustangs girls tennis team boasts a larger-than-usual number of enthusiastic players out for the team this fall. And the team’s unity is a result of the support shown by veteran players. “We’ve got 27 girls out for tennis this fall; usually we’re in the low 20s,” said head coach Mara Sjodin. “Twelve of the girls are eighth graders, which is awesome. It’s very exciting to think about – not having to worry about filling our varsity and junior varsity teams.” “We’re kind of unique because, for lack of a better term, we don’t have a lot of ‘drama.’ The older girls support one another on and off the tennis courts, which is reassuring for the younger girls because we all practice together. They set a great example, and encourage the younger girls to stay with it.” Sjodin pointed to the positive influence of junior captains Grace Harmon and Kelsey Reynolds. “They’re always super-positive, and very good at setting the tone in practices. They know we have high expectations: our goal is to work hard, become more competitive and be remembered for being mentally tough. And they do whatever is best for the team. They also set an example in the off-season, taking private lessons in the winter and going to camps in the summertime.” Kelsey and Grace started playing tennis together in fifth grade. “I really like playing with this team. We’re very close; we’re like sisters,” said Kelsey. “I like being there for the girls when they need someone. Positivity is a key that we’ve been working on with the team.” “When we go to matches, win or lose, we always have fun together,” said Grace. “I really like being able to show the younger girls how to do things. We want to set a good example, staying positive even when we may get tired.” The Mustangs have very supportive families who are welcoming to old and new players, according to Sjodin. “When you go to a tennis match you can’t yell and scream for your child; you have to lightly applaud. You have to be ready for long hot days out-

doors. And it’s like one big family reunion at our matches.” Sjodin anticipates more decisions as as Section play approaches in early October. “Section 7 A is very competitive, but once our doubles teams get settled we may see opportunities to advance,” she said. “The FirstLight Wellness Center has been one of the best things that’s happened to Mora tennis. We’ve heard nothing but positive things from parents and other teams. At the beginning of the boys season last spring there was still snow all over, and we didn’t have to worry about canceling practice. Usually at the beginning the players are anxious to get outside and hit; now we can hit anyway.” The captains listed Foley, Pine City and Becker as the teams they find to be challenges. “Going into a match we can’t just look at a team’s name; we need to play like we do at practices, play the way we know how to play,” Kelsey said. Grace had hope for her teammates. “We’re a younger team, up-and-coming, really intelligent. Our younger girls are getting so good in the program,” she said.

Sjodin added, “We’re a growing team, not just in our numbers but in our skill and abilities. The credit for that belongs to the leadership shown by the older girls.” Their success hasn’t come without great effort. “We work really hard to get where we are,” Kelsey said. “We may not always win, but we always try hard. And we’re excited to see what the future holds.”

SEPT. 6 VS. BECKER AT BECKER Loss 0-3 (19-25, 18-25, 19-25) From the Coach: We started out poorly and played catch up most of the night. We missed serves at crucial times, making it even more difficult to stay even paced. We gave up too big of runs to their tall offense, would work hard to get back in the game, only to have untimely errors which again gave Becker the upper hand. We hope to be more focused and tighten up our defense when we face Becker at home. A positive from the night was that we blocked really well. We did shut down their big hitters 14 times for points. Hailyn Bos led the blocking with six ace blocks. In this week and upcoming games we need to work on defense (moving in sync on the court) as well as making constant attacks back at the opponent . We are sending too many easy balls back over and not forcing teams’ defenses to struggle. -Coach Lisa Gustafson UP NEXT 7:15 p.m. Sept. 13 vs. Milaca at Mora 7:15 p.m. Sept. 17 vs. Hinckley-Finlayson at Mora 7:15 p.m. Sept. 18 vs. Moose Lake at Moose Lake HS 7:15 p.m. Sept. 20 vs. Foley at Foley HS

Speechless over spittlebugs, shoelaces ECHOES FROM THE LOAFERS’ CLUB MEETING Why so glum? My wife is going on a three-day shopping trip. So what’s the problem? She’s taking me with her. DRIVING BY BRUCE’S DRIVE I have a wonderful neighbor, named Bruce. Whenever I pass drive, thoughts Al’s World his occur to me, such as: I enjoy watchAl Batt ing baseball. The leisurely pace of the game suits me. That’s part of its charm. I confess that I’m a chronic multitasker and baseball games allow opportunities for that. You can take a nap during a game. When the Washington Senators relocated to Minnesota in 1961, they became the Twins. I was a lad then, but I didn’t care for the name. I liked the Minnesota part, but the Twins? The Twins stood for Minneapolis and St. Paul. Two minor

league teams, the Minneapolis Millers and the St. Paul Saints had been displaced by the Twins. The Twins played at Met Stadium, located in Bloomington. Their name is unique and no worse than other professional teams. It’s probably better than most. The familiar name suits them now. What was my choice for a team name? I based it on the excessive expectoration of baseball players. They were and are spitting fools. An insect that creates a white, frothy foam on plants is called a spittlebug. The Minnesota Spittlebugs. It has a ring to it. A MOUTHFUL OF EVERYTHING BUT SHOELACES I was feeling as run out as a wellplaced bunt. I’d looked everywhere, but I couldn’t find it. I’d searched for so long that I’d forgotten what I was looking for three times. The good news is that wherever it was when I was looking for it, it’s still there. I decided to have something to eat. Maybe hunger was the cause of my inability to remember the location of whatever it was that I

was trying to find. Off to a restaurant I went. “Only one?” asked the headwaiter. They are good at that. “Just one?” is another common greeting. I wanted to say, “No, there are 29 more getting out of my car. We’re clowns.” He likely wanted to say, “Be sure to check out our Loser Special.” My meal came. The server waited until my mouth was full before asking, “How is everything?” I wanted to tell her about my shoelace that had broken that morning. I couldn’t find any replacement shoelaces, so I needed to go shopping. That’s what I wanted to say, but I couldn’t because my mouth was full. So I just nodded and gave her a thumps-up sign with my fork. Servers wait until a mouth is at full capacity before asking questions. That cuts down on complaints. AL BATT is a syndicated columnist.

The 2018 roadside survey for pheasants showed a 19 percent increase in the overall pheasant index from 2017. While the index is similar to the 10-year average, it is still 52 percent below the long-term average. “Given the April snowstorms and heavy rains across a good portion of the pheasant range this year, it was surprising to see increases in the pheasant indices across so many regions,” said Lindsey Messinger, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources wildlife biologist who coordinated this year’s survey. “It appears hens may have delayed nesting and chicks were able to tolerate the rain in most areas.” Weather and habitat are the two main factors that drive Minnesota’s pheasant population trends. Weather causes annual fluctuations in pheasant numbers. In the south-central region of the pheasant range, late-season snowstorms and heavy rain this past spring and summer has been tough for pheasants. Habitat can help mitigate the impacts of weather and the availability of quality nesting habitat is more important for long-term pheasant population trends. Conservation Reserve Program acres in particular play a large role in providing habitat for pheasants in Minnesota. The program, covered under the federal Farm Bill, pays farmers to remove environmentally-sensitive land from agricultural production and restore vegetation that will reduce soil erosion, improve water quality, and provide habitat for wildlife and pollinators. Minnesota peaked in nesting habitat acres, particularly CRP acres, in 2007 but has declined since then. Minnesota added about 82,500 habitat acres in the past year, many of which were CRP acres; however, nearly 297,000 acres of CRP may be lost within the next two years due to contracts that are set to expire. ROADSIDE SURVEY DATA The DNR’s August roadside survey for pheasants showed a 19

percent increase in the overall pheasant index from 2017. This year’s statewide pheasant index was 45.5 birds per 100 miles of roads driven. The pheasant index increased in all regions except the south-central region, which decreased by 36 percent from 2017. The highest pheasant counts were in the west-central, southwest and central regions where observers reported 48 to 65 birds per 100 miles driven. Hunters should find the best hunting opportunities in these regions. Minnesota’s 2018 pheasant season is open Saturday, Oct. 13, through Monday, Jan. 1. ANNUAL WEATHER IMPACTS ON PHEASANTS Winters that linger can impact the start of the breeding season and success of early nests. Heavy rain, particularly at or just after hatching, can impact chick survival. One indication of delayed nesting activity were the ages of broods that observers recorded during the roadside surveys. From brood ages, approximate hatch dates are calculated. The range-wide hatch date in 2018 was nearly a week later than in 2017, and a few days later than the long-term average. Hatch dates in the southwest of June 26 and south-central of June 23 were 20 and eight days later, respectively, than in 2017, and they were one to two weeks later than the 10-year and long-term averages. Another key indicator of annual reproduction is the number of broods observed during roadside surveys. The 2018 statewide brood index increased 28 percent from last year. Regional brood indices increased in every region except the east-central region, where it remained similar to last year, and the south-central region, where it declined by 28 percent compared to last year. “Unfortunately, heavy rains came during the period of peak hatch in the south-central region,” Messinger said. “And as our survey results indicate, brood survival was affected in this region.” SURVEY INFORMATION Monitoring pheasant population trends is part of the DNR’s annual

August roadside wildlife survey, which began in 1955. DNR wildlife managers and conservation officers in the farmland region of Minnesota conduct the survey during the first half of August. This year’s survey consisted of 171 25-mile-long routes, with 151 routes located in the pheasant range. Observers drive each route in early morning and record the number and species of wildlife they see. The data provide an index of relative abundance and are used to monitor annual changes and long-term population trends of pheasants, gray (Hungarian) partridge, eastern cottontail rabbits, white-tailed jackrabbits, mourning doves, and other wildlife. The 2018 August Roadside Survey report and a map of pheasant hunting prospects are available at mndnr.gov/hunting/pheasant. Also recorded in this year’s survey: • The gray partridge index remained similar to 2017 and was 50 percent below the 10year average and 93 percent below the long-term average. • The mourning dove index decreased 7 percent from 2017 and remained below the 10-year average and longterm averages. • The cottontail rabbit index decreased 23 percent from 2017 but was 13 percent above the 10-year average and similar to the long-term average. • The white-tailed jackrabbit index was similar to last year and remains historically low. • The white-tailed deer index decreased 13 percent from 2017 but was still 19 percent above the 10-year average and 99 percent above the long-term average. During the 2018 pheasant season, the daily bag limit is two roosters through November, and it increases to three roosters on Saturday, Dec. 1. The possession limit is six roosters (increasing to nine roosters on Dec. 1). Shooting hours are 9 a.m. to sunset. Additional details are available at mndnr.gov/hunting/pheasant.

Education foundation opens first round of grants CONTRIBUTED

After an outpouring of support over the last year from local businesses, individuals and alumni, the Braham Area Education Foundation has announced that it is now accepting applications for its first round of grants. The Foundation will be seeking applications from faculty and staff within the Braham Area School District, for projects that expand learning opportunities for Braham’s students in ways that extend beyond the reach of the ordinary school budget. In this first year of supporting students, the

Foundation will provide grants of up to $1,000 each, for a total of up to $5,000. The Braham Area Education Foundation announced its official launch last fall, with a mission of providing Independent School District No. 314 with enhanced educational opportunities and resources, supporting academic excellence, and encouraging student achievement. The Foundation is a partner fund of the Initiative Foundation in Little Falls, which provides the Foundation with additional professional support in identifying educational needs, building

relationships with donors and managing the Foundation’s investments in Braham’s future. The development of that fund is off to a terrific start, thanks to a successful Spring Gala, with more than 300 people in attendance. Thanks to the gala and contributions from individuals and businesses in the Braham area and beyond, the foundation raised more than $90,000 in less than a year, and has its sights set on reaching $100,000 by homecoming. To add your support to the Foundation quickly and securely online, please visit www.ifound.

Weinand completes school of banking CONTRIBUTED

Michael Weinand, vice president and senior lending officer, a 19 year employee of First Citizens Bank, was awarded a diploma on Aug. 10, 2018, at commencement exercises during the 74th annual session of the prestigious Graduate School of Banking at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. The school, sponsored by state bankers associations from across the central United States, as well as the University of Wisconsin-Madison, was established in 1945 to provide bankers with an opportunity for advanced study and research in banking, economics and leadership. Instruction at the Graduate School of Banking takes place during two-week

resident sessions for three consecutive summers, along with comprehensive study between summer resident sessions. The curriculum focuses on the management of strategic issues faced by banking executives and financial services industry professionals. More than 85 esteemed academicians, economists, government officials and industry professionals comprise the school’s faculty. In addition, Weinand was awarded a Certificate of Executive Leadership from the Center for Professional and Executive Development at the Wisconsin School of Business. This is the highest-level certificate offered by CPED and reflects the rigorous leadership curriculum that is delivered through the Graduate School of Banking.

Hinckley: Conservation officer Bret Grundmeier and Jacob Swedberg continued to patrol state forest areas for bear hunting activity and took complaints of hunters using ATVs in restricted areas. Nice weather also brought an increase in fishing activity. While checking some remote fishing spots late one evening, one small lake was found with a single boat and three occupants that had the lake to themselves. After visibly having a good time and catching northern pike, the trio quickly got quiet and nervous as they returned and found conservation officers waiting at the dock. The anglers had no fishing licenses and no life preservers in the boat. Pine City: Conservation officer Eugene Wynn checked bear hunters and anglers during the week. He spent time checking WMAs and state forests for ATV and hunting activity. Wynn answered questions about upcoming hunting seasons and gave advice on nuisance animal complaints.

Teacher, pupil reunite after 67 years BY KIRSTEN FAURIE EDITOR@MORAMINN.COM

The two men hadn’t seen each other in 67 years. On Thursday, Sept. 6, a former country school teacher and his pupil came together in Mora for a unique reunion. In 1948, Don Johnson was just 17 years old when he was asked to teach in Kathryn, North Dakota. The area was experiencing a teacher shortage and no one had stepped forward to educate the school’s eight students. Don grew up less than 20 miles away in Fort Ransom and had just graduated from high school. He had attended only two months of college to be a teacher when he was asked to teach at the country school. Don was offered a $1,700 salary for the year, which he jumped at. By saving his money, he was able to pay cash to buy a brand-new, 1950 Studebaker. Don taught in Kathryn for three years before moving on to teach in Lisbon, North Dakota. During those three years in Kathryn, Don grew to know a young student, Dennis Olstad, who was attending for his first, second and third-grade years. “I enjoyed school,” Dennis recalled. Dennis walked half of a mile across country to school. His neighbors, Virginia and Sharon Nelson, also attended school with him. As the students grew up and Don taught elsewhere, Virginia stayed in touch. Today, she calls Don every week to talk. It was Virigina who knew Don now lives in Mora and heard that Dennis was moving to Belle Plaine. She saw an opportunity for the two men to reunite. At her prompting, on Sept. 6, Dennis drove to meet Don at his Mora apartment. Together they looked at old photographs of the

schoolchildren and reminisced about the cast iron stove and how Dennis’ mother was the first to call the school when bad weather was on the way. Though it had been 67 years, the men spoke as old friends and

recalled their years as teacher and pupil as if it were hardly yesterday. Dennis recalled Don’s teachings fondly. “He was the only teacher I had, so he was the best teacher,” Dennis teased.

PUBLIC HEARING

REQUEST FOR THE PUBLIC REVIEW AND COMMENT ON PROPOSAL FOR TITLE III COST SHARING AND PROGRAM DEVELOPMENT & COORDINATION FUNDING In accordance with the Older Americans Act (Section 315(c)(1)), the Central MN Council on Aging (CMCOA) is allowed to submit a proposal to the Minnesota Board on Aging (MBA) to use Title III funds for the purpose of providing supportive, health promotion, and caregiver support services and will employ a cost sharing strategy for allowable services to expand potential of this Title III funding to support older individuals and their families in the central 14 county region of Minnesota. The Area Agency on Aging is required to solicit the views of older individuals, providers, and other stakeholders on the implementation of its cost sharing strategy for review and comment. CMCOA is proposing to use approximately $275,018 in Title III-E National Family Caregiver Support funds to pay for caregiver activities/ services, $416,671 in Title III-B funds to pay for supportive services, and $89,469 in Title III-D funds to pay for health promotion/disease prevention programs in 2019 which are subject to cost sharing requirements. CMCOA is allowed to submit a proposal to the MBA to transfer Title III-B (Supportive Services) funds to the Area Plan administration for Program Development and Coordination Activities that will have a direct and positive impact on the enhancement of services for older persons in the 14 county central planning and service region of Minnesota. The Area Agency on Aging is required to make the details of such proposals available to the general public for review and comment. The CMCOA is proposing to use $154,445 in Title III-B funds to support Program Development and Coordination Activities during 2019 as a cost of Area Plan administration. The MBA policy allows up to 25% of these funds to be used for this purpose. The proposed amount represents 25% of the Area Agency on Aging’s new Title III-B direct service allotment. Written comments are encouraged and will be accepted until September 21, 2018. Please send to: lori@cmcoa.org or CMCOA, 250 Riverside Ave North, #300, Sartell, MN 56377 Individuals may also give oral testimony at the Public Hearing to be held at CMCOA at the address above on Monday, September 24, 2018 at 9:00 a.m. Testimony is limited to 5 minutes per person.
