Power outage causes food shortage

The St. Cloud Salvation Army is looking for food donations after their supply of food has dwindled after recent power outages. “More than 120 families requested emergency food assistance due to the power outage and it’s expected the number will increase during the week,” said Major Lee Morrison. “Not only are we receiving more requests for food, but we also lost all of the food in our own walk-in cooler because of the outage.” Even before the outage the needs from the Corps for the basic essentials have been increasing. In the first five months of 2013, the Salvation Army in St. Cloud experienced a 25-percent increase in food requests and meals served and a 36-percent increase in the number of people needing shelter. The St. Cloud Salvation Army served more than 50,000 meals in the last 12 months and distributed more than 240 tons of food from their food pantry. They also have a 64-bed emergency shelter with an occupancy rate in the high 90s, 1220 percent of which were occupied by children. Contact Morrison at the Salvation Army at 320-252-4552 for ways you can help. You can also donate “on-line” at www.SalvationArmyNorth/

Large crowds turn out for two days of festivities by Mike Nistler

Picture-perfect weather, great food and wonderful entertainment drew thousands to St. Joseph for what is becoming one of the best small-town festivals in Minnesota. An estimated 35,000 people poured into the city for the event that was held under sunny skies and temps in the low 80s — a welcome relief after last year’s humidity-filled 100-degree temps that kept many folks away. The festival is a fundraiser for the Church of St. Joseph, and it all starts with the Joetown Rocks Concert the night before Independence Day. As a rule, enough sponsorships help pay for the musical offerings with the church getting the money raised from concessions. Volunteers fuel the events as more than 1,000 help to run concessions, work security and, of course, clean up. Again this year, the Joe Burgers were a hot seller as could be attested by the number of people carrying them around in stacks and dishing them out to family and friends. The musical offerings of the first evening were provided by a local group of four youngsters called 4 Below Zero. Of course, in all of the music there

had to be a member of Bobby Vee’s family and there was. His grandson, Bennett Vee, only 11, played drums. His grandfather and grandmother fondly looked on as the next generation took over the baton. In past years,

Bobby Vee and his sons have entertained the crowds. 4 Below Zero consists of a couple of other St. Joseph residents: Will Leach, 14, on lead guitar and Travis Brattensborg, 14, on bass. The group is rounded out

by vocalist Charlie Stuck, 13, St. Cloud. The next group to take the stage was the Receders, a St. Cloud-based band who has been entertaining local audiences for Festivities • page 4

Sisters pass torch at CSB centennial reunion by Cori Hilsgen

The Benedictine sisters passed the torch to College of St. Benedict alumnae during the centennial reunion kickoff ceremony held June 29. The Sisters passed their light to Bennie alumnae and each Bennie passed her light to the next woman, by an electronic votive candle, until the entire Benedicta Arts Center auditorium was filled with light. Class of 1989 graduate Kim Motes, vice president of institutional advancement at the college, said the passing of the light is symbolic of the alums taking up the torch and accepting the responsibility to light the path for future generations of Bennies. The college motto is “So let your light shine,” and the passing of the torch symbolized the sisters passing the torch to the alumnae to be strong leaders for the next century, Motes said. “We need to become the sisters of the next century,” Motes said. “It is up to us to carry the legacy

forward.” Before the passing of the torch, alumnae lined up and proceeded into the BAC by decades. Women walked or danced their way up the

BAC steps to decade-themed music and were greeted by the CSB dance team, president MaryAnn Baenninger and others. Motes talked about the Benedic-

tine sisters’ foresight and courage to build and establish the college during a time period when women did not have the rights they have Centennial • page 5

Student Spotlight: Ruegemer would change judgment by Cori Hilsgen

If Gaby Ruegemer could change something, she would change how humans automatically judge everyone. Ruegemer said people tend to judge others by certain looks; she thinks they should not “judge a book by its cover.” She is a senior at Sartell High School who, after graduation next year, hopes to attend college in Rochester to become an ultrasound technician. “I think it would be fun and interesting to learn about that technology,” Ruegemer said. Ruegemer is the 17-year-old daughter of Craig and Sara Ruegemer of St. Joseph. She has one brother – Rudy, 8. Ruegemer was active with the swim team at Sartell for five years and volunteered at Pine Meadow Elementary School in a first-grade classroom. “I was in swimming from fifth grade through ninth grade,” Ruegemer said. “I liked how the team was a family, but our school was very competitive, and I didn’t like that so much.” Ruegemer previously worked at a gas station and currently

Centennial from front page today – including the right to vote. When the college was started, someone with a doctorate degree was required to be on the college staff, so Sister Magna Werth earned a degree from the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities. She was the first woman to graduate with a doctorate in physics from the U of M. Motes led the BAC auditorium in singing “Happy Birthday” to St. Benedict; 1939 graduate Josephine Zahnle Terwey, 97, gave the invocation; and U.S. Sen. Al Franken presented an American flag to Baenninger in honor of the 100-year anniversary. “This flag was flown over the United States capital for the college of St. Benedict in honor of their centennial celebration in memory of their dedication in educating women since 1913,” Franken said. 1975 graduate Denise DeVaan, who has worked to increase financial stability among Minnesota’s low-wage earners, spoke about the transformation that occurs when attending CSB – a transformation that continues throughout a lifetime. “It’s time to say thank you to the Benedictine sisters who have never lacked vision or dedication but now lack numbers,” DeVaan said. DeVaan said the bells will continue to ring over the college in the hands of strong leaders for many years to come – leaders who are clear, centered, bright, funny and competent. Prioress Michaela Hedican presented a stained-glass window from the original chapel. The Sisters then passed the light to the auditorium of alumnae. Almost 1,500 CSB “Bennies” gathered in St. Joseph for the reunion, which took place June 2830. Alumnae from at least seven countries and 38 states came home to celebrate “A Century of Connection,” the theme for the college’s year-long celebration of events showcasing what the college has provided to women for the last century. Women travelled from Australia, the Bahamas, Jamaica, Canada and other areas to celebrate 74 years of graduating 21,000 alumnae. “It was so fabulous,” Motes said. “There was a lot of energy and buzz on campus all weekend.” Motes said CSB received emails

stating how moving the passing of the torch experience was for many alumnae. “The biggest surprise of the reunion was how many alums came home for the reunion,” Motes said. “They seemed to understand how important this event was for the college.” Motes said everything was seamless and went off without a glitch, including the completion of CR 2 road construction so the road could open before the reunion. “I have not seen an event go this well in my experience,” Motes said. A new “CSB Connect” free mobile app for iPhones and iPads and approved by Android and Apple was launched in honor of the centennial year. The app allows alumnae from all over the world to connect through photos, some of which are posted on the CSB gallery. The app was designed in partnership with Yamamoto CEO alum Shelly Regan and the college’s information technology department. The app is available in both the Apple Store and on Google Play. Other weekend events honoring CSB graduates for their many contributions included a “Blazer Hall of Fame” dinner and a “Gala Awards” dinner. The Blazer Hall of Fame dinner inducted the 1990 soccer team, No. 1 sports fan Sister Lois Wedl ’53 and six athletes, Lisa Grefe ‘00 (soccer), Heather Schmitt Johnson ‘00 (golf), Tina Kampa ‘95 (basketball/volleyball), Laura Wendorff Meyer ‘00 (basketball), Danielle Guse Schlomann ‘95 (basketball) and Missy Petersen Trenz ‘98 (cross country/track and field). The Gala Awards dinner celebrated 21,000 CSB alumnae and their impact around the world. Awards given at the dinner included the Sister Emmanuel Renner Service Award to Barbara Torborg Melsen ‘78, a Benedictine Service Award to Kenzie Kraemer ‘08, a Decade Award to Laura Hauff ‘03 and a Distinguished Alumna Award to Kari Erpelding Bunkers ‘83. Centennial presidential awards – one honoring each college president – were given to Betty Schneider ‘39, Mary Kay Braus Hunt ‘56, S. Mara Faulkner ‘62, Joan Strom Riebel ‘64, Judge Elizabeth Hayden ‘68, Diana Lam ‘69, Mary Dombovy ‘77, Judy Forstner Poferl ‘82, Karin Remington ‘85, Irma Mayorga ‘88, Shari Lamecker Rogalski ‘89, Colette Peters ‘93, Glennis Werner Roseboom ‘93 and Krista Cleary Carroll ‘00.

Circle of Sisters awards for women who have done something remarkable together or have stayed together were given to Maria Hunt O’Phelen, Molly McGlynn Varley and their 1978 classmates and to the Bahaman Alumnae.

Our View

Hats off to a wonderful Fourth of July celebration

Organizers and volunteers of this year’s Joetown Rocks and the Church of St. Joseph Fourth of July Celebration deserve a hearty pat on the back. One of the largest crowds in recent history attended the two days of festivities, which kicked off on Wednesday night with a lineup of music that more than pleased the large crowd estimated at around 15,000 people. Everywhere you looked people were eating, drinking, talking and reveling in the sunfilled skies and perfect temperatures. After last year’s humid and stifling temps near 100, this year’s weather couldn’t have been more picture-perfect. The same held true on Thursday for the St. Joseph Lions Fourth of July Parade. Again, large crowds estimated in the 20,000 range lined the streets. Many set out chairs hours before the 10 a.m. parade to reserve their spots along the parade route. Many of the folks were local, but others came from far and wide, including places like Arizona and Florida and states in between. For many, it’s an annual tradition that makes summer complete. Maybe the large attendance was due to this year’s long winter that seemed to push spring back by months. Or maybe it’s just that festival-goers know what to expect when they come to St. Joseph for the party. And that’s because of those who organize and volunteer all year long to plan and prepare. That group is led by Sandy Scholz, parish business manager. Scholz is quick to point out she’s just one of many who plays a role in the event. More than 1,000 parishioners volunteer during the event and some work at it all year long. There’s planning to do, and that begins the moment one year’s festival is done. There is work done in the dead of winter. There is work that needs to be done the moment the festival is over, especially taking down displays and cleaning up. We shouldn’t forget to thank also the chairpersons who make the parade a success — Ken and Mary Stommes and Joe Bechtold. But there are so many more to thank it would be impossible to name them all. There were those who toiled over the grills making the wonderful food. Others worked in the beer tent as thirsty patrons waited sometimes several people deep. And still others worked security, checking purses and bags to ensure the safety of all. St. Joseph should be proud of these hard workers and of being able to host such a wonderful event. It’s a feather in the city’s cap. Let’s relish this year’s success as we eagerly await next year’s festival.

Opinion Working on the 4th wasn’t really that much work

photo by Mike Nistler


Jeff Engholm, local resident, business owner and lead singer for Collective Unconscious, gave the crowd at Joetown Rocks a great show along with members of the Fabulous Armadillos. The group, which presented its “Takin’ it to the Limit: A Tribute to the Eagles,” teased Engholm that for the night he was the “Mayor of St. Joe.” I had to work both the night of July 3 and on our nation’s birthday the next day. Before you cue the violins and feel sorry for me, let me just say it wasn’t that bad. My job was to take pictures and write a story about the festivities surrounding the Joetown Rocks musical offerings and the Fourth of July Parade and other events of the Parish of St. Joseph Festival.

It was actually more fun than work. At Joetown Rocks, my camera allowed me to wander right up to the stage to take pictures of the local musicians playing with the Fabulous Armadillos and Collective Unconscious. Those two groups had joined forces for a “Takin’ it to the Limits Tribute to the Eagles.” The show is fantastic and I’ve heard it a handful of times now at different central Minnesota venues. However, to hear and see the group perform in front of 15,000 fans on a picture-perfect July evening was a real treat. Being up front by the stage, I got to experience the music like never before. For one thing, I could feel the pounding of the bass coming through the gigantic speakers. And I was so close I could almost reach out and touch Paul “Stretch” Diethelm, keyboardist Greg Armstrong, vocalist Billy Scherer and Jeff Engholm, lead singer and local celebrity. Engholm owns the Local Blend and his band mates joked that for the night he was “the mayor of St. Joe.” And my experience got even better when I was walking away from the stage through the crowd and was greeted by musical legend Bobby Vee. Vee spotted me, smiled, got out of his chair and gave me a hug. It was nice to see him and to chat. I

first met Vee several years ago when he was turning 50 and I wrote a story about him for a newspaper article. For that story, I got to interview another musical legend, Dick Clark. What a thrill. On the day of the parade, while thousands of people had lined up early to view the parade from special places along the route, I was able to saunter down to the event just minutes before it began. Once again, my camera allowed me to walk along the route, into the street and up close to the floats, bands and other entries. I almost felt bad doing that, half expecting to be stopped by security at some point and told to sit down. But this family-friendly event is just that. No one told me to sit down or get out of their way. I was respectful not to stay in any one area too long to avoid just that. But on this day, everyone seemed extra nice and eager to enjoy the great event and great weather.

Summer’s here! Slap those ribs on the grill After that dismal non-spring we endured, it’s such a pleasure to light up the grill and barbecue my favorite grill food – ribs. After so many years of dickering and fine-tuning rib recipes, I finally have one I consider near perfection, and my guests always agree. I wish I could take credit for those ribs; I can’t. The combined recipe comes from three sources: a good friend of mine, now deceased; my niece’s boyfriend, Greg, who is from Kansas City, rib capital of the world: and Bon Appetit magazine. Here’s how I do the ribs. It’s a putsy recipe, but it’s worth it: The marinade: This is based on tips from Greg. Mix 1/2 cup red-wine vinegar, 1/4 cup honey, 1 tsp. kosher salt and 1 tsp. fresh-ground pepper together. Take rack of ribs of your choice, poke holes all over in between the bones. Then put into a big plastic bag. Pour in the mixed marinade and let it sit in the fridge overnight. Be sure to seal the bag well. The dry rub: This rub is from Bon Appetit. Take the ribs out of the fridge. Drain marinade. Using paper towels, pat the ribs dry. Now you’re ready for the dry rub. Mix 4 Tbsp. kosher salt, 3 Tbsp. brown sugar, 2 Tbsp. paprika and 1 Tbsp. cayenne pepper. Thoroughly rub all over and into the ribs. The sauce: This knock-out recipe is from good

Dennis Dalman Editor friend Kathy Laumb of St. Cloud. One long afternoon 10 years ago, during an amusing verbal game of tug of war, I had to guess the ingredients one by one because, at first, Kathy would not divulge her recipe, which I was wild about. I must have guessed more than 200 possible ingredients, some so “wrong” she burst out laughing. But after more than an hour, after I’d guessed the final ingredient (dry mustard), she let out a whoop of mock disgust, along with an obscenity, and said, “OK, now you know it. Just don’t sell it!” Ah-hah, sweet victory. I’d finally won. Here’s the hard-won recipe for “Kat’s Baby-Back Rib Sauce.” In a blender, puree the following: 4 Tbsp. butter, 4 Tbsp. olive oil, 2 Tbsp. crushed garlic, 2 cups chopped onions. Other ingredients: 3 cups ketchup, 1/4 cup light soy sauce, 1 tsp. cayenne pepper, 1/2 tsp. salt, 1/2 tsp. fresh-ground pepper, 1/2 tsp. hot Tabasco sauce, 1-1/2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce, 1/4 cup redwine vinegar, 1 tsp. liquid smoke, 1/3 cup lemon juice (fresh), 1 tsp. dry mustard, 2 Tbsp. brown sugar (or honey). If you

want your sauce sweeter, please add a bit more sugar or honey. I like my sauce on the tangy side. Kathy’s original recipe had no sugar in it at all. Add the last batch of ingredients to the four pureed ingredients in a large pot. Put on stove on medium heat and simmer, covered, for 20 minutes. Grilling the ribs: Soak hickory chips in a heat-proof container for 30 minutes. Drain and put container over hottest part of the grill until chips begin to smoke. Those little aluminum “mini-bread pans,” so inexpensive at dollar stores, work great for smoker pans. Once chips are smoking good, put ribs that have been patted well with the dry rub and cook on high for 3 minutes on each side. Then move the ribs over to one side of the grill. Turn the heat down to very low on the other side and grill the ribs, slowly, on indirect heat, for about two hours. Be sure to keep grill cover closed. About 30 minutes before they are done, brush ribs frequently with the sauce on both sides, at least six times until the sauce kind of thickens and coagulates. Depending on the size of your grill, it might be a good idea to cut your rack of ribs into four or five pieces before putting them on the grill. Also, cooking times will vary greatly depending on your grill so do keep an eye on them as they slowly cook.

Old-timers to be honored at Saturday’s baseball game

Smoke from front page by Mike Nistler

The St. Joseph Fire Department conducted a controlled burn of an abandoned building on June 29, and the windy weather didn’t help when it came to dealing with the smoke. While firefighters battled the blaze of the building, hundreds of onlookers gathered, trying to figure out what was happening. Meanwhile, motorists along CR 75 did their best to drive through what was at times a blackout.

“Is this heaven?” the old ballplayer asked. “No, it’s St. Joe,” came the reply. Well, maybe that’s not quite the way is was in the movie “Field of Dreams,” but for at least this Saturday that will be the case when the St. Joseph Baseball Reunion will be held. If you remember when baseball was played in the ‘50s and ‘60s in St. Joseph, you’ll surely want to attend the game at Schneider Field. Some 15 to 20 ballplayers from that era and up are expected to be at the game and beforehand to take some swings of the bat, field some ground balls and pop flies,
