She doesn’t anticipate many changes for the new year and said staff will continue working together on ideas and plans that
have been generated through the leadership team. Nagel said she and other staff are excited to have an assistant principal as part of their staff next year. She said they are currently interviewing for this position. Nagel earned a bachelor’s degree from the University of Minnesota-Duluth, majoring

Susan and Gary Kuefler
Friday, May 16, 2014
Dolores and Alfred Torborg
Knights of Columbus names Family, Knight of Year The Knights of Columbus Father Werner Council 7057 of St. Joseph recently named Gary and Sue Kuefler as the Family of the Year and Alfred Torborg as the Knight of the Year.
Gary and Sue Kuefler
This family exemplifies service to the church and community and are loved and respected by many. Gary and Sue Kuefler exemplify the value of responsible Christian living. They generously serve each other and others with love that extends out to their church and the greater community. Gary has been a member of the Father Werner Council for eight years. The Kueflers became members of St. Joseph’s Parish in 2006. Since joining they have worked tirelessly helping out where they were needed without reservation. They were general chairs for the 4th of July celebration and continue to work during that event. They are part of the dedicated parishioners who bring communion to the homebound. The Kueflers work at St. John’s University for the Parish Quilters, giving their time so the quilters can buy materials needed to make quilts. Sue has taken the minutes for the pastoral council meetings and the 4th of July meetings with keen insight and accuracy. In the Diocese of St. Cloud, the Kueflers have established a donor advised fund with the Catholic Foundation in memory of their departed spouses, James Reichmann and DeNile Gaida Kuefler. The couple appreciates donations to this fund. In the community, the Kueflers also serve with distinction. Gary volunteers with the Faith in Action grocery shopping for elderly and homebound clients. Gary also volunteers as a driver to bring clients to appointments for Tri-Cap and delivers Meals on Wheels. Sue serves as the webmaster for the St. Joseph Lions Club and is the club’s secretary.
Both have helped with Buckthorn Control at Stearns County parks. In the council, they both serve with energy and talent. Gary helps with the Knights of Columbus breakfasts, the Knights of Columbus burger sales, for the state-run bowling tournament for Special Olympics, the councils youth free-throw contest, distributes Roses for Life on Respect Life Sunday, distributes Tootsie Rolls to earn funds to help children with special needs and helps with the luncheon at the Ordination for priests and deacons of the diocese. Sue was also involved with the Knights of Columbus when her deceased husband was a Knight. Sue has been editor of the newsletter for the Sauk Rapids Council and the St. Joseph Council. The couple also takes part in the Adopt a Highway project of the council. The Kueflers deserve the distinction of Family of the Year because of their selfless service to others. This honor is bestowed on them because of the manner they support church, the Knights of Columbus and the community showing others the value of generous stewardship of time, talent and treasure. The couple stands firm in support of the unborn and respect for the aged. They demonstrate in many ways how the Catholic Church, through its people, serves the Kingdom of God. We as a council applaud their strong and unwavering support of Catholic values and tenants.
The 2014 Knight of the Year Alfred J. Torborg is a faithful member of the Father Werner Council and daily lives out the Knights of Columbus tenets of unity, charity, fraternity and patriotism. He serves the community, church and his family with energy, dedication, passion and gives generously of his time and talents. We are all proud of him and are blessed to have had him as a member of the Council for 62 years.
In the council Torborg has worked at the hamburger stand for several years. He also works at the breakfasts serving coffee to those needing a cup or refill always with a smile and a cheerful comment. In the church our Knight of the Year has been an usher for several years. He has helped with the set up activities for the 4th of July celebration for as long as anyone can remember, leading the way with his trusty pickup. In the community Torobrg is an active member of the American Legion serving as a color guard member, a flag bearer at funerals of Legion members, as a contributing member on several committees and for several years has been the chairman of our highway clean-up operation. He drives and delivers meals for Meals on Wheels and as a member of the Rod and Gun Club has taught fishing skills to children at the club’s youth introduction to fishing on Kraemer Lake. As he offers his talents and time for the benefit of the church or the community, Torborg does so with a smile and a dedication we can all emulate. He is truly a leader with the trait of generous service and hospitality to and with others. Torborg has a master’s talent in the wood shop, his hobby for many years. He patiently taught his sons and daughter his fine craftsmanship. He has a devotion to the unborn and supports the Knights of Columbus Roses of Life Fundraiser and the Tootsie Roll Drive to raise funds in support of children with special needs. Torborg is married to an equally giving and talented person. Dolores is a dedicated mother and grandmother and she and Al have together raised six children. Dolores said “Al, while farming, taught his children the value and dignity of good, hard work and to take responsibility for their actions.” Sage advice for all.

A historical perspective from 25 years ago May 12, 1989
Expansion in St. Joseph more than evident by Janelle Von Pinnon
Dr. Contardo and his staff will move into this new clinic on Monday, May 15. Since November, Contardo has operated a full-time practice in St. Joseph
Contardo opens doors to new clinic building Dr. Michael Contardo will move his existing dental practice to the new clinic building on First Avenue NW and be open for business beginning Monday, May 5. “We need more space,” Contardo said. “We are tired of bumping into each other all the time. We have been operating in a tiny office meant to be utilized for part-time practice. There was nothing to suit our
needs that we could rent or lease so we built a new building so we could customize it to meet our needs.” Originally from Duluth, Minn., Contardo took a liking to the St. Joseph area during a summer internship from college. “I had the unique opportunity to spend a summer between my junior and senior year, working at the St. Cloud
St. Joe’s Best Kept Secret
VA Medical Center and Dental Clinic. “The people I worked with really impressed me. I enjoyed the area, its people and values. I found it a place I’d like to live and eventually raise a family.” So, after he graduated from the University of Minnesota in 1978, Contardo became a partner in Family Dental Providers, St. Cloud. For the past 10 years, he worked two to three days a week in St. Joseph; the other two or three days were spent in St. Cloud. Last November, the partnership dissolved and Contardo chose to begin his full-time practice in St. Joseph. “The primary reason to start in St. Joseph was to be with the same patients all the time – give my best to the community of St. Joseph,” Contardo said. “I love people and I love helping them. Dentistry is a unique way of helping people and getting to know them.” The old building was 600 square feet while the new building is 1,600 square feet. Contardo said the average solo office space is generally 1,500 square feet. The new clinic has a generous reception area, file room, office space for Contardo, a lab, a lounge and four treatment rooms. “All four rooms can be utilized for hygiene or dental treament,” he continued. “The equipment we will be using is still excellent, but I felt we should change over while we
had the chance. I sent our used equipment – chairs, X-ray equipment and hand pieces – to the orphanage in Port-auPrince, Haiti, where I had done some missionary work. “The decision to go out on my own is due, largely, to the support of my staff. They are a big part of my clinic. They
are fantastic people to work with – very talented and caring. There’s no doubt the people you work with is what makes a clinic.” Contardo is married to Marilynn Olsen. Together they are raising their family of four children: Cori, 17, Eden, 8, Briana, 6, and Matson, 4.
Mike Deutz and Dale Schneider display the live bait fish tank in the new St. Joseph Gas and Bait, Highway 75, St. Joseph, which opened this week. The shop also offers fishing gear and convenience items.

store (half the building) and a bait and tackle shop (a quarter of the building). “The bait shop will sell a full line of bait as well as tackle items and fishing gear,” Deutz said. He and Schneider will rent out the other quarter of the building once the interior construction is completed. Dominos Pizza was considering the space but backed out of the deal a few weeks ago. Schneider also owns Sal’s Bar, St. Joseph. Deutz owns Central Motorcar Specialties carwash and body shop, also in St. Joseph.

St. Joseph Gas and Bait, Highway 75, opened for business Wednesday.

and innovation,” Clarke said. “If they discover early that the STEM-related subjects are fun, they are much more likely to pursue those subjects as they get older. The focus on creativity, problem-solving, teamwork and group decision-making in the Camp Invention curriculum also helps them develop valuable skills that they will use in school and later in life.” This year’s camp program is MORPHED. It features the Super Go module, which allows participants to design a small, motor-powered vehicle. Along, the way, children collect energy coins to build bridges, tunnels and ramps for the Super Go Road Rally. Camp participants will receive personalized challenges from National Inventors Hall of Fame inductees during the Design Studio: Morphed module. With the Amplified module, children invent bionic gadgets while journeying for superhuman senses. At the I Can Invent Pinbug module, children use
tools and electronics to build an insect-themed pinball machine. During the camp, children work together to find solutions to real-world problems. They rotate through four classes each day, working on various challenges, some individually and some in group settings. Together, they come up with ideas, test and make group decisions, and evaluate and revise their ideas. “Camp Invention inspires children to be confident in their natural ability to dream and create,” Clarke said. “Our programs are designed to reflect the spirit of invention, inspired by the inductees of the National Inventors Hall of Fame.” The camp at CSB will be directed by Missy Tellinghuisen, taught by qualified local teachers and will have a one-to-eight staff-to-student ratio. High school and college students will help guide groups through the four daily classes. Even if a child has participated in the camp in past years,

He stated he had no sober friends to come take care of him. He was issued a breathalyzer and tested a .170. Due to his agitated state and no sober friends to come take care of him, it was decided the best op-
tion would be to take him to Detox.
Is your child interested in designing a small, motor-powered vehicle that zooms? If so, then Camp Invention might be a good summer option for your child. Camp Invention is a weeklong science day-camp program that is returning to the College of St. Benedict for its ninth year this summer. The camp is for students entering grades one through six. The week-long experience encourages children to discover their own creativity and inventiveness through hands-on science, technology, engineering and mathematics and helps children engage their brains during months they are usually not attending school classes. Last year 72 children participated in the St. Joseph camp. Susan Clarke is the camp’s regional consultant. “Camp Invention is designed to spark children’s interest in science, technology, engineering

Our View Denying man-made climate change makes matters only worse
Everyone dreads these words: “It’s too late.” Those words are dreadful when it comes to cancer diagnoses, blasted chances for plans and, last but not least, scientific warnings. Someday, that winter vacation to Florida will become impossible unless you and the family want to go scuba diving in a place where Florida used to be. Someday, Manhattan will be a mere memory. Someday, people will be living crammed together on high plains and mountain slopes. Someday, the border of the United States will be so different most of us wouldn’t recognize it on a world map. Sadly, it’s the coming generations who will have to live (or try to live) with this rapidly altered world we left to them. The latest news is that icy Antarctica is indeed melting so fast sea levels are bound to rise by as much as a foot in the next 100 years and will accelerate rapidly up to 10 feet after that. Coastal lowlands won’t just be flooded, they’ll disappear; they’ll be part of an ocean floor. Two groups of scientists are about to publish papers on the crisis in Science and Geophysical Research Letters, according to the New York Times. This doomy news comes on the heels of a report released just two weeks ago that man-made climate change (global warming) is, in fact, occurring, with the average temperature having increased an average of about 1 degree in the past century. Scientists think the abnormally rapid melting of the massive glacier sheets at Antarctica are caused by a combination of global warming, warmer ocean currents in that area and depletion of the ozone layer above that continent. Science-deniers derive glee from blasting any talk of man-made climate change. It is, they claim, nothing but kooky nonsense cooked up by egg-head scientists and by liberals like Al Gore. So-called global warming, they insist, is nothing but part of the natural weather cycles of the Earth. They would rather drown in a quickly rising ocean than admit any climate problems are even remotely man-made. Then there are the eternal optimists, those people who think even if climate change is caused by burning fossil fuels, we’ll be able to “fix” the problem with new technologies in time to avoid disaster. We might even be able to flee to a colonized Mars by that time. Heck, nothin’ to worry about. Then there are the defeatists who say, “Oh, well, we’ve all got to come to an end sooner or later so why worry about it?” Fortunately there are the realists who are trying to address the problem and to do something about it. They have to fight reactionary forces all the time, factions that are stubbornly – and often self-servingly – opposed to development and deployment of safe-energy alternatives like solar and wind power. It will be difficult to initiate the changes required to slow this planet’s warming and pollution. China, for example, has become one giant power plant spewing out zillions of tons of carbon dioxide and pollution from oil- and coal-burning facilities. It’s going to be hard to stop such a destructive juggernaut. Europe has taken giant strides toward energy alternatives. The United States is becoming a leader in that regard, too. But everybody on the planet should do more now – not in some distant future. What could be most helpful is if all these scoffers, optimists and defeatists would someday soon agree there is a man-made problem and then join the realists in demanding solutions.

Opinion Northstar ride leads to breezy conversation Last Sunday afternoon, when I boarded a Northstar railroad car in Minneapolis, I thought for a split second I’d entered a railroad time machine from The Twilight Zone. As I walked down the aisle of the nearly empty car, there in front of me sat a man reading a newspaper with a big front-page headline about Martin Luther King Jr. being assassinated. “What?!” I thought, stopping in my tracks. A second later, I noticed the discolored newsprint. The man said to me, “Hello, why don’t you sit down here and read these papers with me?” I sat down. I noticed he had two newspapers, both from 1968, the San Francisco Examiner about King’s murder, the other the Oakland Tribune, which screamed with bold headlines about another assassination, Robert Kennedy’s. We introduced ourselves. Steve Berkness and his teen son, Jon, had just returned from a trip to San Francisco for a visit to his eldest daughter. After taking the rail link from the airport, they’d transferred to the Northstar bound for Elk River. The newspapers, I learned, he’d bought at a garage sale in California. Apparently, someone had saved them for posterity because of the momentous but tragic news they contained. For a few minutes, we both perused those papers. Glancing at the movie page, I smiled when I saw an ad for that great comedy, The Graduate, which I’d seen in 1968 and several times since. We put the papers down and began to talk: about the Civil Rights era, about too many kids lacking discipline these days, about our jobs. He works in a group home for troubled young people. One of them, a muscular hot head, attacked Steve one day
Dennis Dalman Editor and punched him repeatedly with such force his shoulders were dislocated, requiring two surgeries. Steve’s son, Jon, who was in another train seat, then came over to join our conversation. We razzed Jon, of course. “Oh, what do these kids know?” I said. “Yeah, they don’t know much, that’s for sure,” Steve agreed. Jon, grinning with a scoff, tossed jabs right back in a game of verbal tennis. I learned that Jon, in fact, is bright and responsible for his age (16), that he knows how to resist peer pressure and that he wants to become a cop. From the moving Northstar train a lot of spray-paint graffiti can be seen on bridges, on tunnels, on rusted debris in junk lots, on the butt-ends of decrepit brick buildings. “Why,” I asked, “don’t these graffiti spray-painters use their talents for some other kind of art form, like canvas paintings?” Just then, a young man sitting behind us popped up like a jumping jack and sat across the aisle from us. “They’re not called graffiti spray-painters anymore,” he told us two old-timers. “Now they’re called taggers, and I’m one. I’m a tagger.” Besides being a tagger and a Honda motorcycle mechanic, the young man, Ethan Allbrink, is an Army veteran who served
in Afghanistan, was wounded and now has a titanium right knee. He had travelled all through Europe, working on farms here and there. His tagging is another kind of adventure. He assured us he doesn’t deface private property. Most of his work is commissioned from people who want to see outdoor artwork here or there. Artistic talent runs in his family, and he does many forms of art, but he doesn’t want to stop tagging. It’s a challenge and, what’s more, it pays for itself, including all the cans of spray paint he buys at Home Depot. Ethan lives in North Minneapolis and was on his way to visit his mother in Elk River. The four of us had so much fun talking and laughing, it was a sudden disappointment when the train came to its Elk River stop, and the three of them, with hasty goodbyes to me, had to leave. I’ve had fun conversations like that so often when riding trains. Why is it that strangers can be so conversationally interesting? It might have something to do with knowing you’ll never meet again and so you relate to one another here and now, in the moment, breezily, briefly, with no long-winded stories, with no regard for the future beyond the next train stop. Sunday was my first time on Northstar. I took it from Big Lake to Minneapolis to see the magnificent Matisse exhibit at the Institute of Art. It cost me only $3.50 round-trip. Heckuva deal, and I didn’t have to worry about my directional dyslexia while driving in the big city. I recommend everybody take a ride on the Northstar, at least once. It’s a relaxing ride, and you just might happen into a spirited conversation up or down that line.
Letter to editor
Reader responds to ‘It’s time to abolish executions’
Dolores Schuh, CHM Davenport, Iowa I read the Newsleader online. This morning I read your fine column on the death penalty by Dennis Dalman (May 9). I am vehemently opposed to capital punishment and have learned a great deal during the past two years as I have a pen pal on death row in Raleigh, N.C. There are 150 inmates on death row in Raleigh and most of them have been there well over 10 years; some as long as 25 years. I have joined the National Coalition for
the Abolition of the Death Penalty, which is working hard to abolish it in the 32 states that still use this inhumane form of punishment. I wish a federal law would be passed to abolish these executions in all 50 states. I think it so unfair a guy who has committed a crime in North Carolina can be sentenced to death row and be executed and if he happened to have committed the same crime in, say, West Virginia, he would not be on death row. As a retired nun of the Congregation of the Humility of Mary who worked on the
campus of St. John’s Abbey and University from 1974 to 2004, my ministry at this time is to send birthday cards to each of the 150 death-row inmates in Raleigh and to find pen pals for those inmates who would like to correspond with someone “on the outside.” As Fr. Don Tauscher, OSB, a monk of St. John’s Abbey, has reminded us, death-row inmates are some of the most forgotten people in the world. Thank you for calling attention to a national problem. I pray each day the death penalty will be abolished nationally.
America owes huge debt to vets Today, as a veteran, I am enraged. I am enraged 40 veterans have died waiting for treatment at a VA facility in Phoenix and we are now hearing there may be more, many more. I am enraged some 400,000 veterans are waiting for their promised benefits. As an American citizen I am enraged by the callous and sometimes lethal disregard demonstrated by incompetent bureaucrats who seemingly care less about the very veterans they are employed to care for, those veterans whose sacrifices have allowed this great country to exist. Throughout history victorious armies have returned from battle to cheers, accolades and rewards. Citizens have long known their very existence depends on the warriors who come to their defense. Citizens have long known their treasuries, their way of life, their very futures all depend on a strong victorious military. Unlike armies of old, however, our veterans do not seek accolades nor do they seek reward. They just want what has been promised to them. Here in our country the fact we even have a treasury is because of our powerful military. The fact we have a country is the direct result of our warriors’ willingness to suit up, take up arms and step into harm’s way. Freedom has never been free and we,
Ron Scarbro Guest Writer the people, have a debt. We owe our military and our veterans for their service. We made a promise and we need to keep that promise. The first fruits of our treasury should belong to our military. With that in mind, can someone please tell me why we have 400,000 veterans waiting for their promised benefits? Can someone tell me why 40 veterans died waiting for promised care? I want an explanation. Who is responsible for this? Is it the bureaucracy? The Veterans Administration is granted money to do their job. Generally that amount is decided by the budget requests of the administrators of VA medical facilities. So what’s the problem? Is it possible bonuses are paid to administrators who come in under budget? Is it possible some of these administrators care more about their bottom lines than about the veterans in their care? The more money they
can wring out of their budgets, the higher their bonus. Who do you suppose suffers from this? Certainly not the administrators. As a veteran myself, I have received treatment at VA facilities in St. Cloud and across the country. For the most part that care has been exceptional. But not always. Some of the facilities are understaffed. Many have out-of-date equipment. Some are nearly impossible to reach by phone. Appointments for care are often set months into the future. Do these administrators receive big bonuses for “efficiency?” It’s a fair question. For the majority of my working career I worked as a manager. I learned early on as a manager I was the one responsible for everything that happened, both the good and the bad. Any success was my success but by the same token, any failure was my failure. The same is true for a VA medical facility. The good ones have excellent administrators. The bad ones have something less. Is it time for a changing of the guard? I think VA head Eric Shinseki has some explaining to do. Some in Congress are demanding his resignation. Personally, I don’t care who runs the show; I just want this mess fixed. This country has made promises and frankly we owe our military and our veterans. America has a debt.

Summer Lunch, Learn program meeting to be held by Cori Hilsgen email@example.com
A Joe Town Summer Lunch and Learn program meeting will take place from 7-8 p.m. Monday, May 19 in Heritage Hall at the St. Joseph Catholic church. The summer lunch and enrichment program is for youth 18 and younger. The lunches would be made in St. Cloud through the YES network, which is an organization started by a
number of individuals working for change in our area. The YES network plans to serve lunch at several locations. Enrichment activities such as art, games and more will also be offered at the St. Joseph site. Current plans being considered include possibly offering the lunches and activities at Centennial Park and Klinefelter Park three to four days a week from mid-June to mid-August. The summer lunch program
Click-it or ticket returns
Seat-belt and child-restraint violations will be the target May 19-June 1, as troopers, deputies and city police officers work together to save lives and prevent needless tragedies on Minnesota roadways during the annual May Click-It or Ticket seat-belt enforcement campaign. Since many of our crash injuries and fatalities involving the non-use of seat belts occur at night, about half of the enforcement hours can be expected to be held during the time period between 4 p.m. and 1 a.m. Minnesota’s seat-belt law is a primary offense, meaning you can get stopped
for not being appropriately restrained. Memorial Day will be a main focus time period, as it is in the top six dangerous holidays on our state roadways. Looking back from 2009-13, the Memorial Day holiday weekend was the deadliest of the holidays, with at least 31 deaths and more than 2,060 reported crashes. Preliminary data provided by the Department of Public Safety’s Office of Traffic Safety shows in 2013 there were 94 deaths and 247 injuries where the vehicle occupant was not buckled up.

is a partnership event of the Central Minnesota Catholic Worker, St. Joseph area churches, College of St. Benedict Community Kitchen and other members. Church of St. Joseph member Erinn Hawkins said she hopes to see relationships formed among youth and adults. She also hopes to see children sharing food and fun together. Hawkins said she chose to be involved because summertime is a great time for her children and her to become more connected and involved in the area. She also said she loves to feed people. “I think the Summer Lunch program is needed in order to help support families in our community – plain and sim-
ple,” Hawkins said. “Losing the school-lunch option for summer can place a significant strain on a family’s budget and the Summer Lunch program is a simple way to help ease that burden.” Another St. Joseph Catholic church member, Mary Plafcan, hopes this program will bring people together as they work to solve the needs of others. “As a community we need to try to ensure all children have proper nutrition and learning opportunities,” Plafcan said. “I feel so blessed and want to be able to use my time and talents to bless others.” Resurrection Lutheran Church member Jeanie Wilkins became involved with the program because of a study initi-
ated by the Central Minnesota Catholic Worker which revealed how many people are struggling financially and otherwise in St. Joseph. “I agree with the philosophies of the Central Minnesota Catholic Worker, which is leading the Summer Lunch and Learn and Joe Town Table and seeking to learn more ways in which they and local faith communities can make St. Joseph a better place to live,” Wilkins said. Anyone who is interested in participating, volunteering or learning more about the summer-lunch program for youth 18 and younger should plan to attend the meeting or contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
