St. Joe readies to celebrate Water tower gets facelift by Cori Hilsgen

St. Joseph residents are getting ready for the Joetown Rocks celebration. The annual Church of St. Joseph Parish Festival has grown into a large celebration, drawing a crowd of an estimated 18,000 people last year. Sandy Scholz, Church of St. Joseph business manager, commented on the upcoming events. “Joetown Rocks will be an amazing event this year with great music, superb food and lots of fun,” Scholz said. “We are excited to be using our new parish center this year for the Handiwork and Craft Stand, Country Store and the Candy Stand. It will be a wonderful space to showcase the fantastic items for sale crafted by our talented parishioners. We are also delighted to have two young parishioners, Katie John Heinen and Logan Mehr, members of the music group KJ and the Graduates, kicking off the Joetown stage at 6 p.m.” This year’s concert on Thursday, July 3 begins at 6 p.m. Musical performers include KJ and the Graduates; Jeremiah James Korfe; Rumours and

Dreams, A Fleetwood Mac Tribute, featuring Pamela McNeill, Mary Jane Alm and Jeff Engholm; and The Shalo Lee Band. Evening fireworks are planned at 10:15 p.m. that night. The July 4 events include a Mass, the annual 10 a.m. St. Joseph Lions Club parade, music by the Smok’n Guns band, a quilt auction and raffle drawing. Lions Club member Jim Kuebelbeck is this year’s grand marshal and is being recognized for his 50 years of service to the area. Quilter Delrose Fischer said this year’s 2 p.m. quilt auction includes 19 queen-size quilts, a wall hanging and 17 baby quilts. The signature quilt for this year’s auction is a Collector Cars quilt and a wall hanging. Fischer visited various vintage car owners to photograph cars for the quilt and wall hanging. The quilt is 84-by-97 inches, and the wall hanging is 55-by-68 inches. The quilt will be displayed in the parade, and vintage cars will travel with it.

Eric Brutger was recently hired as a part-time officer for the St. Joseph Police Department.

The St. Joseph Police Department hired a new part-time officer, Eric Brutger, to replace Casey Jansky, who resigned in January because of other commitments. Brutger, 40, was hired May 12 on an as-needed basis to provide continuous coverage and to fill in for others’ vacations and/or special events. He was a reserve officer for the

department last year. Brutger grew up in St. Cloud and graduated from Tech High School. When he was attending St. Mary’s Elementary School, he was impressed with how his DARE officer handled himself. While in high school, he decided he wanted to be a police officer. “I wanted something I could take pride in at the end of the day.” Brutger said. “When people make a call and we show Brutger • page 4

Student Spotlight: Schneider excels at academics and dance by Cori Hilsgen

Cathedral High School graduate Tess Schneider was recently named one of the school’s top 10 students for aca- Schneider demic performance. During her senior year she also excelled at dance. Schneider received an All-Academic All-State Award and was one of 12 dancers

named to the All- Tournament Team at the High School State Dance Tournament at Target Center. Two members of each team that finals at the state tournament are picked by their coaches to be on the All-Tournament Team. “To final” means the team has made it into the top six teams of the top 12 that advanced to state. Schneider is the 18-year-old daughter of Joanne and Kurt Schneider. She has four siblings - Josh, 35; Kris, 33; Meg, 16; and Sam, 13.

Fun Facts about Schneider: Favorite subject: Math “There is one exact answer,” Schneider said. “You either get it wrong or right.” Activities she is involved with: Students Against Drunk Driving, Optimist Club, National Honor Society, Culinary Club and the Cathedral Dance Team. Schneider was captain of the dance team this year. “I was captain with three other girls this year,” Schneider said. “We were there to lead the team and keep them all on task.

Our team had an average age of 14.7 and the majority of our team was freshmen. There were lots of new girls this year, and I enjoyed sharing my experiences on the team and teaching them what I have learned over the years.” Schneider also volunteers at the St. Cloud Hospital. “It’s a really fun place to volunteer,” Schneider said. “If you want to volunteer somewhere, I suggest there.” Favorite leisure activity: Schneider enjoys baking and Schneider • page 5

2 Twelve St. Joseph students were recently named to the spring dean’s list at St. Cloud State University. They and their major are as follows: Spencer Ackerman, finance; Aaron Bragelman, nursing; Luke Brinkman, biochemistry; Chelsea Christman, English; Matthew Donaldson, film studies; Seth Hennagir, chemistry; Brooke Johnson, marketing; Payton Kalla, finance; JaNaye Rennie, community psychology; John Robinson, undecided; Tanner Schafer, health and physical education; and Jeffrey Witthuhn, computer science. To be eligible for the honor, students must have a grade-point average of 3.75 or higher on a 4.0 scale. Brenny Transportation Inc. was recently named one of the Top 100 Workplaces in Minnesota by the Star Tribune. The Top Workplaces special section was published in the Star Tribune on Sunday, June 15. The report can also be found at topworkplaces2014. Top Workplaces recognizes the most progressive companies in Minnesota based on employee opinions measuring engagement, organizational health and satisfac-

tion. The analysis included responses from more than 58,600 employees at Minnesota public, private and nonprofit organizations. The rankings in the Star Tribune Top 100 Workplaces are based on survey information collected by WorkplaceDynamics, an independent company specializing in employee engagement and retention. Brenny Transportation Inc. was ranked 25th on the small company list. Michael Klingensmith, Star Tribune publisher, said, “The companies in the Star Tribune Top 100 Workplaces deserve high praise for creating the very best work environments in the state of Minnesota. My congratulations to each of these exceptional companies.” Brenny Transportation Inc. was founded in 1996 by Joyce and Todd Brenny. They wanted to be part of a company that treated people with integrity and respect, a company that honored champion character and empowered creativity. You could say Joyce and Todd are trucking experts; there are many trucking firms run by managers who have never even seen the inside of a truck. Joyce and Todd both started their careers in transportation behind the wheel of


a truck and between the two of them they have performed most duties involved in the transportation industry. This expanded knowledge of transportation has helped Brenny secure a stable place in the trucking industry. To qualify for the Star Tribune Top Workplaces, a company must have more than 50 employees in Minnesota. More than 2,000 companies were invited to participate. Rankings were composite scores calculated purely on the basis of employee responses. Sixteen St. Joseph students recently graduated from St. Cloud Technical and Community College. They and the degrees they earned are as follows: Adam Anderson, associate’s degree in accounting; Samantha Bard, associate’s degree in accounting, academic honors; Matthew Bedel, associate’s degrees in liberal arts and sciences and in business management, academic honors; Megan Beeler, associate’s degree in liberal arts and sciences; Jackie Braun, diploma in office technology assistant; Nicole Bunnell, associate’s degree in liberal arts and sciences, academic honors; Katelyn Butkowski, associate’s degree in accounting, academic honors; Heath-

up, I want to make people feel safe.” Brutger graduated in 2011. He earned an associate degree from North Hennepin Community College in Brooklyn Park and learned his skills at the Law Enforcement Education Center at Hennepin Technical College. He has 13 years of experience with customer-service skills. Brutger is the general manager of the Waite Park Culver’s store and originally was the operating partner when the store opened. St. Joseph Police Chief Joel Klein said he appreciates that Brutger has life experience and customer-service skills. “I have seen him deal with people and am comfortable with that (his skills),” Klein said. Brutger applied as a reserve officer in St. Joseph because his father, Fred Brutger, is a longtime resident of the St. Joseph area. He said his experience as a

reserve officer showed him the St. Joseph Police Department is a great department and no officer in the department has ever treated him badly. He said he believes the reserve experience is the reason he was considered for his new position. Klein said when someone is a reserve officer, it gives the department a chance to see how they are within the department. “We didn’t have an opening until January, to be able to promote Eric, but that year gave us a good look,” Klein said. Klein didn’t know Brutger that well during his reserve year because they worked opposite hours, but other officers recommended he consider Brutger for the position because they said he’s personable and does a good job. The department currently has eight full-time, two parttime and four reserve officers and is eligible to have up to eight reserves. Klein is seeking new reserve officers soon and said if anyone is interested in being a reserve officer, they should stop in and pick up an application. Not everyone who is on the

Friday, June 27, 2014 reserve force wants to be a cop, Klein said. They want to help their community and they have the interest, but they don’t all want to be full-time police officers. Being a reserve officer is a way for people to get a frontseat ride to see what is going on, participate and learn why cops are the way they are. “They are really a valuable resource for us,” Klein said. When Klein is considering new officers, a good personality is important. He can train the other skills, but a good personality is important to be able to work with other partners and the city and area. St. Joseph reserve officers are always partnered with an officer and are not sent out on their own. Reserve officers carry tasers, batons and mace but do not carry guns. Because police officers are licensed, their arrest powers differ from the citizen arrest powers the reserve officers have. Klein said some of the hardest patrol calls are domestic disputes. Experience has helped him to understand those situations better. “We want to protect people, make them accountable for what they have done and create a safe community,” Klein said. Brutger is married to Teresa. They have four children – Wyatt, 10; Brynna, 8; Boden, 2; and Liam, 1. “I look forward to serving,” Brutger said. “I want to contribute and be a role model and asset to St. Joe.”

Our View

Be aware of suicidal behavior to prevent ‘permanent solution’ Suicide, as they say, is a permanent solution to a temporary problem. It’s a crying shame more people don’t realize that before they take that drastic step. However, most people who kill themselves – teenagers especially – are not thinking rationally when they commit suicide. Emotions – horribly bad emotions – are doing their “thinking” for them. The statistics are devastating. Suicide is the third leading cause of death in the United States among youth ages 15 to 24. It’s the sixth leading cause of death among children ages 5 to 14. According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness, 19.3 percent of high school students have seriously considered suicide, and 14.5 percent had made actual plans to do it. Recognition of suicidal behavior and treatments for it have improved, but there is still a long way to go. The stigma related to suicide must end. Too often, suicide is something people whisper about or pretend does not exist or won’t happen to anyone they know or love. That stigma, that denial, is what most often interferes with people brushing off the serious signs of impending suicide or suicide attempts. Parents, professionals and friends should learn and remember behavioral signs that could lead to suicide. Here is a list of some of them: Personality changes, unexplained depression, loss of interest in daily living, trouble sleeping, sudden fatigue, feelings of guilt or worthlessness, withdrawal from friends and family, feelings of sadness, irritability, aggressive or defiant attitudes, extreme anxiety or panic, neglect of appearance and hygiene, trouble concentrating, poor school performance, the sudden giving away of personal property, drug and/or alcohol abuse. Those behavioral troubles do not necessarily mean someone is suicidal, but – nonetheless – they do cry out to be taken care of, to find root causes, to get effective treatments. If parents or friends think someone is about to commit suicide, they should immediately seek help – even if it involves an intervention involving counselors, the police or other professionals. Children who feel connected, supported and understood by adults and peers are much less likely to ponder thoughts of suicide. Good parents and others realize love and understanding are the best preventive “medicines.” Teenage suicide is utterly devastating in that it leaves a black void in their loved ones that never really goes away. Survivors are often plagued by guilt and the head-hammering question of Why? Why? Why? That is why support groups are essential for loved ones of people who killed themselves. Unfortunately, not enough of those groups exist. To prevent suicide, people must remain aware, heed the warning signs and always take a suicide threat seriously by seeking help for the person. Having a suicide help-line number written in the phone book is also a good idea. The National Alliance on Mental Illness HelpLine toll-free number is 1-800-950-6264.

Opinion Can education stop anti-female barbarity? These words of Hillary Clinton should ring loud and clear as a clarion call to action: “Women’s rights are human rights, and human rights are women’s rights.” She said that in her powerful 1995 landmark speech at the United Nation’s Women’s Conference in Beijing. During her speech, Clinton’s voice quavered with indignation and anger as she voiced a ghastly litany of crimes against females, against human beings, such as newborn baby girls in China killed by starvation, drowning, suffocation or breaking their spines just because they are unwanted “female” babies. These vicious crimes against women still happen with sickening regularity, day and night, throughout the world. One day last May, a crowd stood and watched as a 25-year-old woman, Farzana Parveen, was beaten to death with bricks and bats outside a courtroom in Lahore, Pakistan. Her crime? She married a man she loved instead of the cousin she was ordered to marry. Her self-appointed executioners included her father, her brother and the cousin she’d rejected as a mate. The police arrested the father, who said his daughter had shamed the family. “I killed my daughter as she had insulted all of our family by marrying a man without our consent,” he said. “And I have no regret over it.” That kind of anti-female savagery happens every day. Just in Pakistan, estimates range in the thousands every year for the numbers of girls or women killed by their families for actual or perceived adultery, premarital sex or even disobedience. The twisted name for this monstrous crime is “honor killings.”

Dennis Dalman Editor Islam’s holy book, the Quran, does not mention “honor killings.” And yet – this is the truly sick aspect – perpetrators use their religion as an excuse not just to oppress women but to kill them at the slightest whim. Islam does have strict prohibitions and punishments for “crimes” such as adultery, but at least there is supposed to be a heavy burden of proof on the accuser in a court of law. This anti-woman rage is most common among supposedly “religious” people, like the goons who recently kidnapped an entire school of girls in Nigeria, or the Taliban fanatic who shot a girl in the head while she was sitting in a school bus, or the woman in India who was burned to death because she “dishonored” her family. These are people who invent a “religion” to suit their irrational hatreds. What can possibly fuel such stark cruelties? How could men anywhere be opposed to girls or women going to school? Don’t these men have mothers, sisters, wives, daughters whom they love? Why wouldn’t they want the best for them and for other females everywhere? Even if men are opposed to female education because of some ludicrous “religious” prohibition real or imagined, how on earth can they take the brutal step of killing a girl or woman just because she wants to learn and possibly be happy

in this world? It’s like male chauvinism run amok – but male chauvinism so hate-filled, so poisonous that it spills over into murder. Let there be no doubt that extremist forms of religion encourage and condone those kinds of violence against women. Even in the United States, there are some so-called Christian sects that claim the Bible justifies treating women as lesser than men and that punishing women by husbands is OK in the eyes of God, even marital “rapes” being excused by some adherents of pseudobiblical nonsense. The only way to get rid of these kinds of violence is to get rid of the extremist religions that nurture such cruelties These radicals are nothing but medieval throwbacks who fear and hate the modern world because knowledge (especially women’s education) threatens their male-dominant power bases and weakens their inaccurate visions and responses to the real world. They are trying to live in a past that no longer exists and that probably never did exist in the “sacred purity” they like to imagine it did. It’s not surprising the fear of being so wrong and unjustified can unleash such hatred and violence. Al Qaeda is a prime example of these festering ingrown toenails, medieval nostalgists who seethe with hatred because their outrageous beliefs can find few safe harbors in an enlightened world. But, alas, since it’s impossible to wave a wand and eradicate extremist “religions,” the only solution is through education, to help these extremists see the errors of their ways. But that is going to take education, lots of education. Education for men and – here’s the hitch – education for women. All women.

Letters to editor

Mayor welcomes civil discourse, looks for next silver lining

Rick Schultz, St. Joseph Mayor Hello St. Joseph, Some of the uncertainty, anxiety and instability regarding a rework of city facilities is over, as we move toward a better, more community-involved solution. The city council decided to move forward with further involvement from residents, using facilitated listening and work sessions, by a more neutral party. While at times, it appears we may be at odds, I always look for the next silver lining. There’s nothing wrong with civil discourse. It’s sometimes necessary to aid all in the community to know they are being heard and decisions are not made in isolation. I want to thank everyone for the feedback you’ve offered and for the way you advocate strongly for the well-being of this community. I respect your opinion and will

continue to listen to residents. Very soon, we will begin our budget planning. Our goal is to keep taxes as low as possible while investing in neighborhoods and infrastructure. We will work on how to fund projects throughout the city – from parks and community projects, recreation, trails and needed infrastructure maintenance. We’ll continue to improve the budget process while deploying new and innovative strategies to ensure St Joseph continues to build on past success. I’m interested in how to best engage the public as these sessions begin and continue. I’m looking for suggestions and I’ll try any number of things to encourage feedback from residents. Coffee, town hall or some other type of open session . . . The public is welcome to email, text, call or write a letter, and I am willing to attend

meetings of groups and organizations. Here’s the link to the city’s website where comments may be added also: www. Here are my email(s) and phone numbers:; rschultz@; 320-260-0393; 218-8399378 Thank you for your support.

Bechtolds thank community for help during, after fire The Bechtold Family, St. Joseph We would like to thank the St. Joseph Fire Department, Justin Honer and his crew, Omann Insurance and Landwehr Crane Services for their help with putting out and cleaning up the silo fire last weekend.

Proud and happy to be an American As I get older I find myself reflecting on life. More specifically on my life here in this country. I think of what this life has given me and my family. I speculate on how life might have been different in some other country. I know from time to time we all take our freedoms for granted. I do. I try to be thankful for what this all means, but I know I fall short. I don’t mean to compare living in America with living somewhere else; I just want to note some of what living as an American means to me. Here in my seventh decade of life I still am amazed by the little things. I got up this morning and switched the thermostat on to air conditioning and within minutes my home was deliciously comfy. In the kitchen, I push a button and in moments I have hot coffee. I push another button and cook my breakfast. I serve myself on beautiful dishes which, after breakfast, I place in the dishwasher to have ready for my next meal. I turn on the TV and watch the news. If I don’t like what one station is reporting, I

Ron Scarbro Guest Writer turn to another and another. It’s my choice. I go outside and get the newspaper. The news disturbs me and I write a letter to the editor expressing my unhappiness with some politician or some government program, and nobody comes knocking on my door to ask for an “explanation.” It is great to be an American. What if, back in 1940, I had been born to Jewish parents in Germany, or drawn my first breath in Central Africa? What if I had been born in Stalin’s Russia, the Middle East or even worse in North Korea? As a matter of question, what if I had been born anywhere but in this glorious country

called America? Knowing me the way I do, it is unlikely I would have survived to my seventh decade. The lives which we take for granted here in America are mere dreams for the majority of the world. The poorest among us live lives of luxury when compared to the rest of the world. Our freedoms are too precious to take for granted. When we get tired of a politician, we vote him out and give him a fat pension. We don’t shoot him and his family. When Congress passes a law that doesn’t work, we override it through the courts. And no one is above the law. The same speed limit that applies to me on the highway applies to presidents and all government officials alike. This column is about my love affair with America. This column is about how proud I am to have been so blessed to have been born here instead of those other places I talked about. It is my hope reading it will cause you to re-examine your life here in America. How blessed you and I are.
