Children’s Home ends residential treatment by Cori Hilsgen email@example.com
The Catholic Charities St. Cloud Children’s Home will no longer provide mental-health r e s i d e n t i a l Pareja treatment services for children but plans to expand its
day-treatment program. Children who receive services will no longer live at the site but will instead go home to their families in the evening. The programming transition will begin immediately. The first phase is expected to take about two months and includes discharging youth who will complete the program soon and helping other residents find new program options.
“This decision is intended to increase the focus on community-based mental health services,” said Steve Pareja, Catholic Charities executive director in a media release. “Our programs have provided exceptional care to youth with mental health needs, but over time, the demand for services has shifted from residential services to day services.” He said during the past few years the organization has seen
a trend of decreased referrals for residential services and an increase in request for day services. The program change will allow the organization to serve more children in the area. According to its website, the organization’s staff works with children and their families to help children function more successfully in their homes, schools and community enHome • page 7

A class called Tai Ji Quan: Moving for Better Balance will begin on Monday, March 20 and will continue from 3:15-4:15 p.m. on Mondays and Thursdays through June 12 at the Church of St. Joseph Heritage Hall Parish Center in St. Joseph. Tai Ji Quan: Moving for Better Balance is a program presented in two one-hour sessions each week.
Each session includes warm-up exercises, core practices that include a mixture of practice of forms and variations of forms, mini-therapeutic movements and brief cool-down exercises.

for alumni to give back to their high school and provide valuable assistance to future graduates. An association also allows alumni to remain connected to the cities they were involved in during their high school years. Hamerlinck said he has had many discussions during the past few years with Apollo High School alumni who really felt an alumni association is a good idea. After several discussions with Apollo High School Activities Director Dave Langerud, Hamerlinck decided to move forward with forming the association. Hamerlinck, a 1984 Apollo High School graduate and a St. Cloud State University graduate, has lived in the Pleasant Acres addition by St. Joseph for 20 years. He is a past president of the Kennedy Community School Parent-Teacher Association and was a member of the St. Cloud School Board from 2011-14.

He has one daughter who graduated from Apollo High School and another daughter and stepson who are currently attending there. Hamerlinck works as an account manager for a technology company and also does some work for the Apollo High School activities department. His wife, Amy, works at the St. Cloud Veterans’ Administration Hospital. The next meeting for the St. Cloud Apollo Alumni Association will take place at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, March 22 in the Principal’s Conference Room at Apollo High School. People should enter Door Number 7. Hamerlinck said organizers hope to continue to build upon the March 1 discussions.

Balance from front page The class can be done seated or standing which makes it perfect for all fitness levels. The class focuses on learning eight core movements and incorporates some balance components to help with fall prevention. “We know that falls are a big risk for older adults, which is why we continue to offer these programs in St. Joseph, with the collaboration of the Whitney Senior Center and the Church of St. Joseph,” Woischke said. Church of St. Joseph Parish Nurse Marjorie Henkemeyer said Tai Ji Quan originally considered a martial art but has now transformed into a therapeutic exercise that addresses coordinated movement, range of motion, walking and posture. She said the class is perfect for older adults and individuals who have difficulty with balance. The class is one of the evidence-based program options provided through the Whitney Senior Center of St. Cloud. Woischke first brought this workshop to St. Joseph three years ago and said they

decided to bring the program back to St. Joseph because they had such an overwhelming response to the first one. Woischke said she has been fortunate to be able to train leaders to teach the workshops but yet has the ability to lead the classes herself. She has been teaching the Tai Ji Quan class for three years and an EnhanceFitness class for 12 years. The EnhanceFitness class is ongoing and focuses on all four components of what individuals need in an exercise class that includes balance, endurance, strength and flexibility. “For those that know me and take my class, I bring the energy and passion with me into my classes,” Woischke said. The workshop is covered through grant funding through the Central Minnesota Council on Aging, but voluntary contributions are accepted for the classes. A second session for the workshop will take place from 12:15-1:15 p.m., beginning Friday, April 17 at the Whitney Senior Center in St. Cloud.

Ask a Trooper
Why do officers assume someone was speeding when a driver hits ice and loses control? Q: Why do officers assume someone was speeding when a driver hits ice and loses control? That can happen to the most experienced drivers. Using 169.14.1 to give a person a ticket because he hit some ice and went off the side of the highway seems like that officer has very little compassion. A: Our main mission is to promote traffic safety through education and enforcement. One of the top contributing factors to why people are losing their lives and being injured on our roadways is speeding or traveling too fast for conditions. Law enforcement sees this far too often. In most cases, these tragic crashes are preventable. Many of the fatal and serious injury crashes that I have investigated are the one-vehicle rollovers or a two-vehicle crash where one of the vehicles was traveling too fast for conditions, lost control and struck another vehicle. We all have an obligation to
drive with due care and adjust our driving skills to the weather, road and traffic conditions. This is especially true in winter when weather and road conditions can frequently change. Losing control of a vehicle is evidence that the driver committed a violation of a traffic or equipment law. Failure to drive with due care is the most common violation when a vehicle loses control and goes off the roadway. The number one thing we can all do is slow down and increase our following distances, especially when roads are slippery and the visibility becomes poor. In my experience and when talking with my co-workers, the reasons found for a vehicle losing control on slippery road surfaces are typically: • Traveling too fast for conditions. • Using cruise control on poor road conditions. • Following too closely.

It would be sheer folly to kill arts organization The current Republican majority in the U.S. Congress and the Trump administration are considering putting an end to the National Endowment for the Arts, which would be a most unfortunate decision. Since 1965, when the NEA was founded by an act of Congress, the agency has given a couple of hundred thousands of grants that have helped keep alive this great nation’s vibrant arts, both traditional and cutting-edge. As often happens, unfortunately, when talk comes down to budget-cutting, the arts are often first on the chopping block, with too many uninformed people considering arts as frivolous fluff, not essential or – worse – subversive of traditional values. Years ago, in the late 1980s, there was a big push to end the NEA because of a handful of controversial art works, some of them denounced as blatantly obscene and/or disturbing. Some were, in fact, disturbing. And many great artworks, such as Picasso’s monumental Guernica, are disturbing – goads to our conscience. Such strange works three decades ago outraged some conservatives who were eager to throw out the baby with the bathwater. Fortunately, the NEA survived, largely because many enlightened conservatives who cherish and nurture the arts yelled “Whoa!” The arts have enriched all of our lives in ways we don’t often think about. Some of the arts supported by the NEA include the following: folk and traditional arts, literature, local art agencies, museums, media arts, design, arts education in schools, dance, theater, opera, music and visual arts such as painting, print-making, sculpture and so much more. Arts are what help make us fully-realized human beings in a civilized society, and every great society in history all the way back to antiquity has supported and nurtured the arts, as the world’s magnificent museums so eloquently testify. Societies that are not civilized, that thrive on barbarism, cannot tolerate art works because they view the arts as a threat to their twisted ideologies: Hitler’s regime and ISIS are two examples of art-haters that went on rampages, smashing and destroying as ISIS goons recently did in the ancient ruins of Palmyra, and in Syrian and Iraqi museums. Thriving arts are dependent upon open minds and vigorous democracies. People who interact with arts and are enlivened by arts have a low tolerance for rigid ideologies and intolerant behaviors. The NEA is “dedicated to supporting excellence in the arts, both new and established; bringing the arts to all Americans; and providing leadership in arts education.” The annual budget of the NEA is about $146 million, a tiny fraction of the entire national budget. To kill the NEA would be a grave mistake, cutting off nose to spite face, a cynical move, a darkening of the light of American civilization. We should loudly oppose ending this indispensable arts agency. Tell national legislators, “Do not kill the NEA.”

Forget iPhone; get a piggy bank Mrs. Anderson gathered her three children into the living room. “Well, we can forget about that iPhone we planned to buy next month,” Mrs. Anderson told them. “But why, mom?” they asked all at once. “Because the $700 we saved so long to buy it will have to be used for health insurance,” she said. “The Congress is about to get rid of Obamacare and replace it with another health-care plan. We have to save every cent we can.” “Well, that’s not fair!” said Johnny, the fourth-grader. “Fair or not, we have no choice,” the mother said. “Just yesterday, a congressman, some guy named Jason Chaffetz of Utah, said low-income Americans (that’s us, kids!) should not buy an iPhone and instead save the money for our healthcare premiums and co-payments.” “I suppose that means we can’t get that new car we were going to buy,” said Judy the teenager. “New car?” said her mother, laughing. “You mean that 2001 Dodge Stratus we checked out? The one with 89,000 miles on it? We’ll probably have to stick with the old Ford beater that’s nickeland-diming us half to death.” “Oh, whatever,” scoffed Judy. “Hey, Daddy’s home,” shouted Chucky, the first-grader. “Daddy, what’s that in your arms? Is that a present for me?” “Son, it’s a present for all of us,” Mr. Anderson said. “It’s a jumbo piggy bank. It’s also known as a health-savings account. From now on, I want you kids to put half of your allowance money in this bank. No more bubble gum. No more
Dennis Dalman Editor candy bars.” “C’mon, dad, that’s not fair!” Judy shouted. “Life’s not fair,” he said. “Do you think it’s fair your mother and I work minimum-wage jobs? Do you think it’s fair we sometimes have to go to the food shelf? What’s fair about your mother getting breast cancer last year? Is it fair that Chucky broke his arm on the playground? And this isn’t fair, either, but you might have to get a job, Judy.” “Why?” Judy replied. “Because – sorry, Judy – but you might have to help us pay health-care premiums,” he said. “Well, how come we managed before?” she asked. “Because we had Obamacare,” he told his daughter. “We still do, but that might be repealed soon by Congress. The politicians say their new plan will give us more competition, more freedom, more quality. House Speaker Paul Ryan announced today that everybody – even the poorest (that’s us, kids!) – will be able to afford it if we save enough, but they’ll help us with tax credits. We can choose our own doctors. That’s what our new president promises, too. More choices.” “Choices? No iPhone? No car? Not even candy, for cryin’ out loud?” Judy scoffed. “Some choices! Why do those
politicians get spiffy health care and live so high-on-the-hog, and we have to grovel down in the dumps?” Mrs. Anderson scolded her daughter. “Judy, now stop that,” she said. “Those politicians work harder than we do. They are smarter than we are. They know best. Well, at least that’s the way they act. That’s what they say.” “Yeah, well talk is cheap,” Judy said. “Maybe so, but we cannot do without health care,” Mrs. Anderson said. “What would I have done without Obamacare? Thanks to that, they caught my breast tumors early, or I probably wouldn’t be here to tell about it.” Mr. Anderson went out to the car and brought a package into the living room. “Oh, daddy, a present for me!” Chucky squealed with delight. “No, son, it’s a home-health-care kit,” he said. “If we can’t save enough money in Mr. Piggy, we might have to depend upon this kit.” “Well, what’s in it?” Chucky asked, eyes wide. Mr. Anderson began taking items out of the big box. “Aspirin, Band-Aids, gauze, cotton balls, Ace bandages, rubbing alcohol, splints, clamps and a bunch of other things,” said Mr. Anderson. “This do-ityourself health kit might come in handy some day, in a pinch. Look, there’s even a pliers here for pulling out loose teeth.” “But what if we get really, really sick, like mom did last year?” Judy asked. “If we can’t save enough for health care, we can’t get sick,” he said, pointing to the new piggy bank. “So don’t you dare get sick, kids. And that’s an order!”
VFW great for veterans, great for country
I would like to make a special shoutout to an organization I have come to learn so much about and admire during the last few months. That organization is the Veterans of Foreign Wars. The VFW has thousands of chapters around the country and counts more than a million veterans in its membership. It also does youth outreach, with essay contests and other programs. When I first heard about these, I was very intrigued. Their Patriot’s Pen essay contest is for grades six through eight, and the Voice of Democracy contest is for high-school students grades nine through 12. The theme for Voice of Democracy for this year was “My Responsibility to America.” It was a very fitting theme, and one that made me reflect. Our veterans and current service members have given their time, talents and energy toward protecting us and our rights. They are fully practicing their responsibility, and then some. For most people my age, this is something that is not even thought about. Young people can revel in the freedom America gives us without fully realizing the sacrifices made to earn that very freedom. In my essay, I wrote about that I cannot take for granted the rights I have enjoyed as an American citizen. America was and is continuing to be built on a commitment to improving life for ourselves and our children. The American Dream is all about that if you work hard enough, you can get ahead.
Connor Kockler Guest Writer We should not expect things to be given to us for free but that honest effort will be rewarded. My responsibility to America is to take every opportunity I can to improve myself and to work with those around me – to be involved in voting and to volunteer toward improving my town and the world. I cannot grow complacent with the way things are; Americans should always be ready to stand up for one another and fight for what’s right. After hundreds of essays were submitted and judged in the Sixth VFW district, I was honored to be selected as one of nine competitors aiming to be the Minnesota state winner of the contest. Traveling to the Twin Cities for the ceremony, I was able to meet many outstanding veterans and organization members. The amount of hospitality given was truly extraordinary, and I thank all of the organizers for how helpful everyone was. My fellow competitors were very gracious as well. Despite the high stakes on the line, I had many great conversations with them. Everyone had put a lot of ef-
fort into their entries. When the results were announced, the candidate for the Seventh district was selected as the winner. Upon listening to her speech, I could tell all the passion and thought involved. She will now go on to the national competition in Washington, D.C. I will be cheering for Minnesota all the way. Through it all, seeing all the great people that comprise the VFW, I appreciate everything they have done for this country. I hope my generation can see just how far each of them has gone. Whether it was fighting in a foreign land, raising a family or being active citizens of their towns and cities, they have gone the extra mile. I hope to live up to that same standard, and to make my contribution to my city and country at large. They are amazing role models to aspire to, and I was honored to be able to talk with them about their experiences. This brings to mind for me the famous words uttered by President John F. Kennedy at his first inaugural address some 55 years ago. “Ask not what your country can do for you. Ask what you can do for your country.” I will continue to ask myself that question, and I hope to do what I can for this country. Connor Kockler is a Sauk Rapids-Rice High School student.
