On the About You site, visinate@olmstedcountyjournal.com tors can watch videos about the After gathering extensive project, read a synopsis and get input through community raw data on the inventory’s findforums, questionnaires, and ings in areas of interest, and online surveys, Rochester’s com- parse through the data to find munity asset inventory, About responses contributed by various You, offers insights into the feelings and preferences of neighbors who live and work in Rochester, comprising a snapshot of how it feels to spend life here. “We are excited to roll out the tools for the community to learn more about themselves and leverage the assets here and also look at new opportunities that they could be a part of,” said Heidi Mestad, director of communication and community engagement at the Rochester Downtown Alliance. More than 3,000 people volunteered their opinions, far greater than the minimum that organizers had hoped for. Twenty meetings were held with cultural groups that About You wanted to make sure were counted to ensure a more representative survey. “We had the usual list of names and organizations,” said diversity committee chair Adam Ferrari. “We sought out people who are active in their communities. When we found just one person active in a group, everything clicked and it was no problem putting the forums together.” The data collected is available at www.aboutu.org and By Nate L angworthy

demographics. If you’re feeling particularly ambitious, you can even download the entire 200page report. Four general themes emerged from the data as organizers reconstructed the input: •People in Rochester are busy, yet find time to reinvest in community. •Area residents enjoy using Rochester’s outdoor amenities, but feel that indoor gathering places are lacking. •Rochester is viewed as being a diverse community, but residents are unsure whether that diversity is fully embraced. •Rochester residents have many talents to offer, yet struggle to feel a sense of belonging. Adam Ferrari, chair of the project’s diversity committee commented that one of the most eye-opening insights from the project came to him in a community forum. “Someone said ‘I don’t think Rochester embraces its diversity, it merely tolerates it.’ That stuck with me. There’s a lot of data to support that statement,” he said. While About You was a large undertaking, organizers insist that it is just a starting point for community organizations to work from. “It’s going to take people and organizations to stand up and be champions for change,” said Ferrari. “We need leaders to emerge and do that.”

Stewartville

Fire Station up to Stewartville voters By Patrick Shumaker patrick@olmstedcountyjournal.com

In recent months Stewartville City Council members have discussed the many options and opinions regarding the cities plans for updating the fire station. Concerns over the location, building costs and construction designs continue to be addressed as the council agreed to move forward with the project. The final decision in the matter has been put into the local voters hands. The voter referendum will take place in the Spring of 2013 after the blue print design plans are finished and agreed upon by all of the involved parties. Financing of the construction will be The City of Stewartville’s obligation and none of the cost is to be passed on to the Township. The Township will continue to be charged through a Contract for Services agreement with the city. In a three to one vote (with

member Judy Hanson voting against) the council approved a local real estate finders fee. The reward will go to any licensed real estate agent or broker who closes on the sale of property for commercial, industrial or private use purchased from The City of Stewartville. Only one finders fee will be permitted per sale and the fee is set at five percent. Among the restrictions that do apply to the fee: city employees, their families and those with outstanding violations in the city are currently ineligible. Hanson would have preferred the legal document to be sent back to the lawyers so the verbiage regarding the restrictions listed could be further researched. Mayor Jimmie-John King updated current events in the city, encouraging citizens to go See STEWARTVILLE Page 10  Comment on this article at www.olmstedcountyjournal.com

Wes Bussell named Eyota Citizen of the Year By Bill Lisser bill@olmstedcountyjournal.com

Mayor Wes Bussell was surprised by the Eyota City Council when he was named Citizen of the Year at the Annual Eyota Days Celebration. “I was humbled and honored,” Bussell said. According to City Councilman Tony Nelson he was given the award because of his service to the community. “All of his years of service

to the community and the fire department and the things he did for the community that were not known,” Nelson said. This is the second time Bussell has been named Citizen of the Year. The City Council added verbiage to the sanitary services request for proposals requirements to insure they contract See EYOTA Page 12 

Obituaries Charles David Butruff, Jr. Charles David “Charlie” “Pops” Butruff Junior, 70, of Rochester passed away We d n e s d a y evening, July 25, 2012, at St. Mary’s Hospital in Rochester. Charlie was born November 3, 1941, in Charles David Rochester to Butruff, Jr. Charles Sr. and Pearl Butruff. He married Sandra Bickford on November 30, 1963. He enlisted in the United States Navy in 1959 and he proudly served his country aboard the USS Lexington on an East Asia tour from 1959-1963. He returned from his time in the service and fell in love with his sweetheart of almost 49 years, Sandra. He went to work for IBM shortly after returning from his Naval tour. He retired from IBM in January of 1994 after 30 years of employment. Charlie loved the outdoors and enjoyed hunting, fishing, buck skinning and camping. He loved afternoon adventures at Treasure Island Casino, where he could be found playing his favorite penny slot machines, quality time with his dear friends, and spending weekends and summers with

his precious granddaughters. In 2003, Charlie survived a cardiac arrest due to the rapid response help from an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) and he spent many years afterwards committed to educating others about the importance of providing AED equipment in public spaces. He is survived by his wife Sandra of Rochester; three sons, Christopher (Glynis) Butruff of Austin, Tx.; Eric (Susie Timm) Butruff of Scottsdale, Ariz.; Chad (Sara) Butruff of Farmington; four granddaughters, Heather Mickelson, Bree Vipond, Trinity and Alexa Butruff; sisters Jo Ann Anderson and Deborah Butruff of Rochester; brother Craig “Skip” Butruff of Austin, Tx.; Aunts Jane Smith, Pat Taylor and Elaine Morse of Rochester, Lucille Healey of Victor, Iowa; Many nieces, nephews, cousins, brothers & sisters-in-law and numerous loving friends and camping buddies.

C ommentary None of us make it alone By David Hansen “When we succeed, we succeed because of our individual initiative, but also because we do things together,” President Obama said recently. “If you’ve got a business, you didn’t build that,” was the out-of-context excerpt pounced upon by Mitt Romney. It’s unfortunate that the President didn’t choose his words more carefully; he was stating a fundamen- David Hansen tal truth. No one has succeeded entirely on his or her own. Will Rogers pointed that out eighty years ago and it’s been echoed ever since, including by Romney in one of his previous incarnations. Mr. President, let me restate the case. This illustrates the fundamental difference in the Presidential candidates and most Congressional aspirants as well. This is the case Democrats must make to win this year. Financial success is the result

Editorial Cartoon

of our hard work AND the cumulative work of all who gave us opportunities, from teachers to parents to customers. It’s also the result of all who impacted the lives of those people. Credit goes to others who built businesses, educational and religious institutions, infrastructure, traditions, etc. Americans who have defended and improved our country within and abroad made success possible. As a result we all start with a tremendous advantage! We are born with an investment having been made in us by all those who came before. Not everyone has the same advantage, and some make more use of it. But if we are successful, what is a fair price to pay for the opportunity we have been given? 25 percent? 50 percent? A bargain at that price. That’s why we ought to cringe when we hear talk about the government “taking our money.” We are just paying a debt to our fellow citizens, giving them a small return on their investment. As has been true in nearly every country since the Middle Ages, a higher

tax rate is asked of those who have benefited more. I don’t begrudge anyone financial success. That’s our free market system. But no one gets there alone and none of us should be so pompous as to deny that. It would be like giving our parents no credit for our birth. I have no problem with Romney having wealth. I do find it troubling that our tax system encourages some of the methods used to accumulate that wealth, sometimes reaping profits while leveraging takeover targets into bankruptcy. The result was undeniably to leave the rest of us holding the bag. The Romneys reported nearly $43 million in income for 2010 but paid less than 14 percent in taxes. That’s lower than the marginal rate on someone who earns $30,000. We, the other taxpayers, have to make up the difference. The one return released shows about $25 million came from overseas investments. And, always, we make up the difference, with more government debt, lesser services or higher taxes elsewhere. We need only look at the dramatic growth in income disparity over the past few years to see the results. As Mitt Romney has said, he did nothing illegal; he said he paid the taxes he had to “and not a dollar more,” followed by a chuckle. That’s hardly the point. It should bother him a little, not be a joke. It doesn’t occur to Romney that maybe there is something wrong when that tax structure is legal and encouraged. The obliviousness is consistent with installing a car elevator in one of his homes even as he runs for President as a “regular guy.” (Apparently none of his advisors get it, either.) How many of us have created nonprofit corporations and shifted untaxed

investments to it, thus seemingly avoiding hundreds of thousands in taxes? Did you deduct $77,000 in a year to care for your horses? Romney and many Republicans running this year defend the inequity in our tax code, even wanting to skew the system further. Romney and his former firm, Bain Capital, lobbied for more favorable tax treatment for investments and hedge funds. Yes, it is true that nearly half of American households don’t pay Federal income tax. (They do pay many other taxes, of course.) But you could take half of everything those households have - not just what they earn but what they own - and not have the revenue over the next decade from simply letting tax cuts on the wealthiest expire. That is being lost in all the demagoguery and “Class Warfare” jargon. Class Warfare, indeed – Class Warfare is lobbying for more tax advantages at the expense of the poorest. Clearly, the poor among us have much less effective lobbyists. As a society we want to encourage and reward suc-

cess. But we have a system that encourages and perpetuates it. Will Rogers, President Obama and others are correct: as we move forward, working our way out of a recession and reducing the Federal debt, we must remember that we benefit from each other.

C ommentary One Moment, Please...

Presidential Pendulum of Popularity By Jason Sethre Publisher of the Fillmore County Journal & Olmsted County Journal Cell phone: 507-251-5297

jason@olmstedcountyjournal.com

Source: http://candychang.com/ parties-in-power/ with references compiled from sources such as: http://artandhistory.house.gov/ house_history/partydiv.aspx, http:// www.senate.gov/pagelayout/history/one_item_and_teasers/partydiv. htm, http://www.enchantedlearning.com/history/us/pres/list.shtml

Well, another presidential election is upon us in a little over three months. Or, shall we call it a popularity contest? I certainly wish that the voting process put more weight on the Jason Sethre popular vote than the electoral vote, but I know I am only one of about 235 million U.S. voters who feel the same way. Yes, the coverage of the presidential election might as well be the weekly cover of People Magazine, since it seems to be a celebrity affair. To me, I could care less about debate over Voter ID and gay marriage. There are only three things that really matter: jobs, the economy and healthcare. All the rest is simply filling a void of back-and-forth conversation. Forget foreign affairs for a moment. We have people in our own nation who need assistance. Let’s clean up our own backyard before we try to fix problems around the world. I said this along time ago in a newspaper far, far away, that the presidential election process is merely a public pendulum. Since we are adamantly opposed to anything but a two-party system, the question always comes down to public perception and whether it will be four or eight years of control by that particular party. The Republicans maintain control for four or eight years until people are convinced through media and marketing efforts with the help of Democrats that we need a new president. And, likewise, when the Democrats maintain control, the Republicans do everything they can to defame the Democrats until they are voted out of office. Can’t we all just get along? Yeah right! Historically speaking, Roosevelt is the reason our nation established no more than a two-term limit for the office of president, serving more than 12 years in office. So, if your party isn’t in control at the moment any time in the near future, don’t worry. History shows that either political party will be in control again at some point. We are simply following the continuum of the swinging pendulum. Whomever is in office is always the target of our nation’s inadequacies. It comes with the turf.

Right or wrong, it is what it is. And, I do believe that just like Rome, the state of our economy wasn’t built in a day. It takes years for the evolution of an economy. Stimulus packages are mere blips on the radar. And, even when we think they will have an immediate impact, they don’t. We don’t see the expense of those endless shopping sprees in the immediate future. Yes, truth be told, many presidents take credit for success and blame for demise for things of which they cannot control. Decisions made 10 and 20 years ago will impact the outcome of today. And, likewise, decisions made today will impact a future yet to be had. Public perception is everything in this celebrity fit club of the presidential campaign. How many houses does the candidate have? What are their religious beliefs? Where were they born? How many children do they have? What are their ages? What have they done for a living? How rich are they? Do they like cats or dogs? The interview for president is a human resource manager’s

nightmare. I can just hear HR saying, “You can’t ask that!” We dive into the personal lives of all of our candidates, looking for moral fiber imperfections. And, really, we should. We should be looking for ghosts in the closets of all candidates from Senate to Congress to Supreme Court Justice to President. If it is a position of power, it deserves ultimate magnification. In the end, the incumbent always has the upper-hand. Even with a dismal approval rating, they have already had an opportunity to demonstrate they can “act presidential.” They have had the opportunity to show what they would do if they were president – for real. They’ve been there, done that. So, the question will be answered yet again in the November election as to who will be our next president. But, in case your presidential hopeful ends up falling short, don’t worry. Your party will come again some day. It’s the pendulum at work. But, really, can a president solve our problems? Look for my answer to this question next week.

sources. Wilson focused on the accomplishments of the board during his years of service, as well as state and national county leadership positions that he has held. “As I look toward the future, I see that I can be an integral player,” said Wilson. On the topic of silica sand mining, Skudlarek said that government should listen to citizens who have objections with the practice, but called the industry a potential economic boon for the area. Wilson expressed his support for the mining if adequate regulation can be put in place to ensure safety. Wright was skeptical about the practice, remembering visits to Iron Range mines with poor air quality. “The lure of potential wealth leads people to think that the pot of gold is at the end of the rainbow,” he said. On the topic of transportation, Wilson stated that he supported a high-speed rail line between Rochester and the Twin Cities if studies show a solid business case. Skudlarek repeatedly emphasized the need for planning for less fossil-fuel intensive transportation and indicated connecting Rochester’s bike trails to create a viable means of transportation as a priority. Wright said that local infrastructure was most important to him. When asked how the county could help to alleviate the problem of having more than 300 Rochester public school students who are homeless, Gregg Wright proposed that school and county social workers work in collaboration to provide services and reduce costs. Commissioner Wilson said that he recommends the county’s social service advisory board look into the issue to bring forward recommendations of how to create partnerships in the community. Skudlarek stated that he would look at how the county could help support the families of these students. “The family is the core issue,” he said. While the county has opted out of a proposed 12-county human services redesign initiative, Commissioner Paul Wilson said that Olmsted County does partner with neighboring counties on a number of services, and that collaborations would

continue to be pursued even as the landscape is shifting with Olmsted County growing much bigger than other southeastern Minnesota counties. In this case, he said “the dollars weren’t there and the dollars didn’t match.” Wright said the county should continue to look for ways to collaborate, but warned that collaboration often adds more bureaucracy. Skudlarek asked that citizens consider what they could do to address the issue. Sixth District (most of southwestern Rochester) Candidates: Jim Baker, Sheila Kiscaden, Dave Perkins (incumbent).

All candidates expressed some level of support for the highspeed rail line, though Baker said that he would not support it if a solid business case had been made. Kiscaden expressed her support, and reminded voters that she had been working on this issue since her time in the State Legislature in 1992. Commissioner Perkins has supported rail projects during his time on the county board. “We need to find solutions to get cars off the road with the price of gas and the price of highway maintenance,” Perkins said. Commissioner Perkins reiterated that he did not support the contruction of Silver Creek See FORUM Page 11 

Food For Life By Jade Sexton

Raw Treats I have a serious weakness for cookies, as I have probably mentioned before. I have found so many delicious recipes the past few years that I love to make and share with other people. But I really do not want to turn my oven on in this weather. And who does? Even with the air conditioning running, it still makes for a very hot kitchen. These days most treats come in pre-made store-bought form. I have been eating way too much packaged food full of preservatives and excess sugar,

sodium, and fat. I can tell when I start to feel sluggish and gross. I miss the clean, pure feeling of eating fresh food, clean food. I have experimented with raw foods a lot over the last few years, trying recipes from the Internet and raw food cookbooks. It’s hard to imagine all the amazing things that can be made out of raw foods. People get really creative. It’s not just plain raw fruits and vegetables.

Raw Strawberry Thumbprint Cookies

2 cups almonds 1/2 cup unsweetened dried coconut (or coconut flour) 1/4 cup chia seeds 1/3 cup agave nectar or raw honey 1/3 cup grape seed oil (or any other oil) 1 tsp. vanilla Pinch of salt 5 strawberries, pureed Place almonds in food processor and process until finely ground. Add powdered coconut and chia seeds and pulse to combine. Add remaining ingredients and pulse until well combined. Roll into a small ball. Flatten and indent the center with your finger. Place on dehydrating screen and fill indentation with strawberry purée. Dehydrate for 6 to 8 hours at 115. Makes 2 dozen cookies.

You can do delicious things with nuts, seeds, and sprouts as well. One time I made a fake “cheese” spread out of soaked cashews, and it was delicious on crackers. Speaking of crackers, I once made the most delicious crackers of my life using raw foods and a dehydrator. All I did was blend things like onions, flax seed, peppers, spices, and water, spread them on the tray and let them dry. Raw proponents rave about the health benefits of eating food that hasn’t been heated. The fresh food keeps all of its enzymes, and is more easily digested by the body. Cooking foods can diminish the nutritional value considerably. I could personally never eat a diet that was 100 percent raw (you cannot make me give up coffee), but I do believe that people need to eat more raw foods than we currently do. One of the best tools for making raw meals and treats is the food dehydrator. As long as the dehydrator does not get the food above 118 degrees, the food retains its raw benefits and the enzymes are not destroyed. The downside to eating raw, in my opinion, is the cost. Some of the recipes are filled with raw nuts and dried fruits, which can be pricey. There are also other ingredients used that are hard to find and expensive. There are many ways to get around this, though. I like to buy in bulk at food co-ops

to save money. Buying fresh vegetables and fruits in season locally also helps. Another drawback is the time. If you are using a dehydrator, it usually takes several hours, which means planning ahead, something I am not too great at. But it can be done easily, especially if you set the dehydrator to dry overnight. I admit that most of the raw foods I have created were desserts. But they are healthy desserts. Some of the most delicious food I have ever eaten was so simple. I like to buy ripe bananas when they are marked down at the grocery store, slice them, and dehydrate them. When they are done, they taste like the sweetest treat, and they are just bananas. It is a great snack for kids – actually any

dried fruit is. I have made my own fruit leather by pureeing fruit with applesauce and drying it. The kids love it, and there is no added sugar or preservatives. I found the recipe for these cookies at www.rawmazing. com. If you are interested in trying some unique, healthy, and delicious recipes, there are many other web sites out there with thousands of free recipes. Eating healthy doesn’t have to be boring. You don’t have to munch the plain raw veggies anymore and moan about how bland they are. Don’t ever waste time on food you are not excited about, if you can help it. Try something new, buy a new ingredient, use a new spice, and do something good for your body.

New Pine Island School Board members spurn MSBA guidelines By Karen Snyder In what appeared an attempt to oust six-year Superintendent Chris Bates, the four new members of Pine Island’s School Board outvoted their colleagues and rejected a proposed timeline for renewal (or not) of Bates’ contract. But the board action may not matter, as Bates may have a job elsewhere before any review of his job performance in Pine Island takes place. He could be headed for a job as superintendent in Crookston, Minn., before the Pine Island board again takes up the issue. The rejected timeline proposal would have included board members’ evaluations, an Aug. 13 closed session to discuss the appraisal with Bates, a summary report at the August 20 meeting and a Nov. 1 consideration of whether to renew his contract, which runs through June 30, 2013. That timeline takes too long, board member Kim Fall said. The contract decision, said board member Rob Warneke, should be made in August. Chairman Jeff Leland, explained that the timeline followed Minnesota School Boards Association guidelines. “I’m going off the best advice I can get - from the experts.”

But Fall, Warneke, John Champa and Angela Heiden disregarded MSBA’s recommendation, as well as the timeline. Then the quartet, elected to the board last November, voted yes on their own motion, for an Aug. 20 renewal decision. Leland, Vice Chairwoman Janet Szajner and Treasurer Randy DePestel voted for the original timeline and against the rushed one. During the school board campaign last fall, Fall told the Zumbrota News-Record, “I do feel that the reputation of the Pine Island School District has suffered over the past five or six years. We don’t seem to be striving for excellence in any areas, and we don’t have clear goals that we can reference.” Bates has job options, too. Last Wednesday, he interviewed for the Crookston, Minn., school superintendent post. Friday afternoon, he was offered the job, and the Crookston Times announced, “Chris Bates is the new superintendent of the Crookston School District.” On a Thursday visit to Pine Island, three Crookston School Board members heard glowing reviews, the Times said.

The cost for vendors and patrons is free. The mayor also reminded those looking for something different to do locally to take advantage of the towns local Sears House Tours. The home located at 301 Main Street North was the childhood home of Richard W. Sears, the founder of Sears Roebuck Company. James Sears, Richards father was a very early settler in Stewartville and his family resided in the home until 1869. Tours of The Sears House continue throughout the summer months; every second

to accommodate students appear to have eased the crowding but the need for more room is evident. Computer rooms, labs, larger restrooms and exercise facilities are issues that continue to be researched and are in a fact gathering stage. Future plans are sure to include the fact that the towns population continues to grow. Stewartville’s Public Library Director Patricia Johnson reported a “steady increase in new accounts that have recently been opened.” Stats show the library to be a busy place this summer as the numbers for circulation of loaned materials continue to go up. The next meeting of the local Library Board will be August 21. The Stewartville Library is located at 110 2nd Street SE and is open Monday through Saturday.

Kiscaden stated that she is in favor of the direction that the county has gone in building the facility. “When you have chronic inebriates, you have a public safety issue,” she said, going on to explain that local government would be spending many more tax dollars in alternative dealings with this population, such as police interaction, detox

Standing beside a a 44-inch tall platform, Peterson springs to its top, jumps back down and repeats the feat 14 more times. In other business the board unanimously approved • The hiring of Cheryl Kuss as

middle school counselor. • The resignation and retirement of Gail Ryan. • The roster of fall coaches. Twenty-two of 23 jobs are filled, with the quest for a junior high boys soccer coach carrying on.

The story jumps to different time periods and locations, which makes it more accessible to more ages. “We’ve been talking with the Kahler for several months about the Christmas madrigal dinner event we’re planning in the Elizabethan Room, and it seemed to make sense to add a show in the summer to kick-off working together. “The strong cast, clever show

Words Players’ first dinner theatre event opens August 17 in the Elizabethan Room, Kahler Grand Hotel. Who’s On First, a delightful, nightmare comedy by American playwright Jack Sharkey, features a cast of four adults, a rubber chicken, mysterious voices, magic lamps, slapstick gun play, and a party that begins at 8pm and then at 8pm and then again, well, at 8pm. The four characters --due to a misunderstanding and a magic

lamp with a malicious sense of humor--keep shooting each other and then coming back (a la Groundhog Day) under different circumstances to repeat the event. In the first act they play variations of the original event. Then they shift between cultures in nightmarish ways designed to make them look silly: borderline hillbillies, film noir characters and then creations of a British drawing room comedy. In the third act they piece together what has occurred

and do their best to sort the matter out and prevent the magic lamp from zapping them again with its warped sense of humor. The hilarity runs from the opening scene to the shocking ending. “It’s an extremely funny, clever and light-hearted show and seemed appropriate to offer as dinner theatre and as a summer indoor entertainment alternative,” said Daved Driscoll, director of Words Players Theatre. “We of course considered a Neil Simon play for this sort of

2012 Public Works projects and purchases By Karen Reisner David Morrill, McGhie and Betts, reported to the Chatfield City Council at their July 23 meeting that they had received six bids for the 2012 Water Distribution Improvements. The low bid was from Zenke, Inc. of La Crescent with a bid of $116,261.50. Councilors Josh Thompson and Dave Frank were absent. Councilor Paul Novotny inquired about an easement. Morrill said he had spoken with the property owner who seemed OK with the concept, but the easement has not been completed. He added that the bid is good for 30 days. Novotny wanted to wait until the easement was in place before awarding the contract and Mayor Don Hainlen agreed. Morrill advised the council to let the contractor know of their intent to move forward while the easement detail was worked out. Superintendent of City Services Tony Lammers recommended the low quote of $4,195 from B and D Sealcoating to sealcoat the Library parking lot, the parking area around the water tower

and the booster station, and the walking path on Hillside Drive. The low quote was accepted by the council. Lammers explained the city’s locator equipment needs to be replaced as it is old and doesn’t work very well. The cost of new updated equipment will be $3,600 and be expensed from the Water Fund. The purchase of the equipment was approved as recommended by the Public Works Committee. Lammers described how a handheld GPS device would aid in more precise mapping in utility infrastructure elements including hydrants, water valves, manholes, and catch basins. The coordinates through GPS software result in a map which will be used by public works personnel. Lammers said they wouldn’t need to buy software. The purchase of the device was approved at a cost of less than $600. Over time the public works crew will build a database. Other Business In Brief •The quarterly financial report was accepted. Kay Coe noted in her report that the funds and general fund departments are on

Subscribe to OCJ for only $25/year. to clear about 1,660 feet of sewer lines. Approval was given to contract the work out. •Filing for the upcoming election will be from July 31 to August 14. Three council seats and the mayor’s position are up for election. •Mayor Hainlen said that eight candidates were interviewed for part-time police officers. The hiring of five part-time officers was approved. Three are licensed and can move into service immediately. The part-time officers are called to fill in when there are open shifts. •Fire Chief Keith Bradt had requested that 10 pagers be purchased for a total cost of $5,250. An application to the DNR for a $2,500 grant has been made for partial reimbursement of the cost. Young noted that the old

track for this time of year. •A public hearing will be held on August 27 for the consideration of the nomination of the Chatfield Center for the Arts property as a Local Heritage Landmark. The Chatfield Heritage Preservation Commission (HPC) plans to recommend to the city council that the Center for the Arts receive that designation. The nomination has been submitted to the State Historic Preservation Officer for review. City Clerk Joel Young noted the designation will help the property to qualify for grants. The designation will create a new set of zoning rules for the property. Building permits will have to go through one more step in the process including the HPC. •Novotny reported that there had been complaints by businesses about Main Street park- Main Ave. Harmony IO N ComAU CT ing.

County tells you where your taxes are going while reporting clean audit largely to losses in waste manBy Nate Langworthy County chief financial officer agement. “Obviously, I’d prefer to see a Bob Bendzick gave a report of the county’s financial status to surplus than a loss, but I think the board of commissioners fol- we did very, very well,” said lowing the state audit, which Bendzick. Bendzick is cognizant that gave Olmsted County a clean bill of financial health. The state a half million dollars is not audit gave the county a clean anything less than a staggering rating. Olmsted County contin- amount to the average counues to maintain the AAA bond ty resident, much more so the rating awarded by Moody’s and total budget that the loss is a Standard and Poor’s credit rat- sliver of. To remedy this, the county ing agencies. This year, the county opera- has made a “quick statement” tions are less than $500,000 available on its website, www. over budget, which is less than co.olmsted.mn.us. This statethree-tenths of a percent over ment breaks down the cost for the $165 million slotted for the services provided by the county per resident. 2012 operating budget, Antiques • Jewelry • Coins due • Collectibles • GunsThe statement is

typically created yearly, but Bendzick chose to pull it out of the half-inch thick document so that the information can reasonably be visualized by an average county resident. “We’re trying to get this information out in a way that makes sense,” said Bendzick. An average of $1067 per county resident were paid to the county through property taxes this year. Further broken down, human services, including social service programs and public health, is the county’s largest cost at $446 per resident this year. The average county resident will pay $242 for criminal justice and public safety

services this year, while highway construction and maintenance cost the same taxpayer $186. “When you go to Target, you don’t think about going to a $4 billion corporation and get overwhelmed, you look at the prices of the items on the shelves,” said Bendzick. “When people see that the county has a 165 million dollar budget, they think ‘what you do is pretty expensive.’ When you’re paying money and you don’t know what it’s going for, this causes a lot of resentment. I think that this puts it in perspective.” To illustrate this, Bendzick noted that a person would be

hard pressed to pay someone to plow their driveway through the winter for the amount that they pay to plow the roads. Olmsted County will break a string of years in which infrastructure depreciated more than the money put in to improve it, while this is a positive development, this remains an area of unease. “It’s been a continuing concern about whether we’re able to keep up with that part of our job,” said Bendzick, noting that throughout recent years investment in infrastructure has not kept up with the county’s growing population, a situation that is not ideal.

Frontage Road plans evolving in Byron By Patrick Shumaker The Byron City Council invited the public to share their thoughts, ideas and suggestions regarding the proposed reconstruction of the Frontage Road located from 2nd Ave. NW to 10th Ave NW. The meeting held on August 1, 2012, at 6:00pm, located at City Hall located at 680 Bryon Main Court NE. While continuing to gather facts and public feedback the council appears determined to prepare for the future needs of a growing town. “There are a lot of things being plotted out regarding the project plans, we’re early on in the process. There are some issues to overcome regarding turning lanes and where is right

of way for traffic. We will be dealing with the plans and some current road maintenance in the near future here also,” said Bill Angerman, City Engineer. Final design for the Frontage Road construction continues to be on track for its current targeted due date of September. “Some of the things we have talked about are traffic projections. We’re also looking at concepts of aesthetics and possible access closures in the area,” added Angerman. Impact of the planned changes will affect business owners and nearby residents alike. The ultimate goal is to have improved traffic flow with a safer roadway for travelers and

those living near the frontage road. Golf cart use on area streets was discussed and has been tabled for the next city council meeting, to look at a possibe fine tuning of the current permit rules. Byron currently issues a $20.00 annual permit for local golf cart and ATV use. The ordinance is in effect to control use of vehicles that are not built for everyday city driving. Years ago city officials decided to allow limited use of these types vehicles in order to plow driveways in the winter and for those residing near the golf course to use golf carts. Deputy Wood spoke in favor of keeping the current permit ordinance

intact. “Law Enforcement realizes when people are golfing, or plowing driveways and we understand that. What we don’t want to see is people just running errands around town with the golf carts or ATV’s, that would become a problem.” Phil McPhee was announced as Bryon’s newly promoted Assistant Fire Chief. “Phil has

Page 17

been with our local fire department for around 28 years,” mentioned council member Brett Baumbach. “We appreciate his service and we are glad to see him receive the promotion”. The Byron City Council’s next meeting is rescheduled for Wednesday, August 8 at 6:00pm.

New round of historical and cultural heritage grants awarded in dozens of MN communities Important Minnesota stories will be preserved and shared thanks to a new round of Minnesota Historical and Cultural Heritage Grants awarded by the Minnesota Historical Society with funds from the Legacy Amendment’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund. Fifty-nine new grants have been awarded in 29 counties across the state (see list below). Demand remains high for MHCH grants as the second and final year of this biennium begins. Over the past year, the Society received 481 applications requesting approximately $10.5 million and awarded 253 for approximately $5 million.

“We’ve reached 71 of 87 counties at the halfway point of this biennium compared to 56 of 87 in the last biennium,” said David Grabitske, manager of Outreach Services for the Minnesota Historical Society. “A truly diverse number of eligible applicants have demonstrated compelling reasons to preserve the state’s history, one of our most valuable non-renewable resources.” The remaining Minnesota Historical and Cultural Heritage Grants deadlines for fiscal year 2013, which began July 1, 2012, are: DEADLINES FOR SMALL GRANTS, WHICH ARE UP TO

$7,000: August 17, 2012 October 5, 2012 November 9, 2012 (funds permitting) January 11, 2013 (funds permitting) DEADLINES FOR MID AND LARGE SIZE GRANTS, WHICH ARE $7,001 AND HIGHER: Final applications: July 27, 2012 Historical Resources Advisory Committee meets: September 6-7, 2012 at the Minnesota History Center in St. Paul The Grants Manual is available at legacy.mnhs.org/grants Applications are accepted only through the Society’s grants portal

at grants.mnhs.org Minnesota Historical and Cultural Heritage Grants are made possible by the Clean Water, Land and Legacy Amendment’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund by the vote of Minnesotans on Nov. 4, 2008. The amendment supports efforts to preserve Minnesota’s land, water and legacy, including state history and cultural heritage. MINNESOTA HISTORICAL AND CULTURAL HERITAGE GRANT RECIPIENTS: SMALL AND STRUCTURED GRANTS Each Historical and Cultural Heritage Grant project will preserve and enhance Minnesota’s cultural and historical resources. The grants are awarded according to professional standards and criteria. The latest round of recipients of Small and Structured Grants of up to $7,000 are:

From the June 15, 2012 Rolling Deadline for Small Grants: FILLMORE COUNTY, City of Wykoff •Mitchell Saloon Structural Analysis, $6500- To hire an engineering firm to conduct a structural assessment of the Mitchell Saloon, home to Ed’s Museum operated by the Wykoff Historical Society. homegrown & homemade

Operation Round Up keeps making a difference - granting $17,567 to local causes ORONOCO, MN — People’s Energy Cooperative’s Operation Round Up® Trust Board met on July 19 and donated $17,567 to the following worthy organizations: •$3,800: Ability Building Center, Rochester, to help replace an old roof and make improvements to curbs and walls. •$2,500: Faith in Action, Plainview, for transportation costs for volunteers for transporting the elderly. •$2,000: Friends of Oxbow, Byron, for electrical installations for the new wildcat exhibit. •$700: Great River Homes, Inc., Wabasha, for material to build a raised garden for people

with disabilities. •$1,500: Community Ambulance, Hayfield, for backboards and straps and scoop stretchers. •$1,102: Madonna Living Community, Rochester, for a vital sign machine and rechargeable pocket otoscope. •$2,500: First Responders, Oronoco, to purchase of new pagers and radios. •$1,800: Southeastern Minnesota Youth Orchestras, Rochester, for portable music stands. •$764: Bonner Elementary, Stewartville, to attend a MN Orchestra Young People’s Concert. •$401: Bonner Elementary, Stewartville, for a phonemic

The Operation Round Up® fund at People’s Energy Cooperative (PEC) started in 2002 and raises approximately $72,000 a year to support a variety of charitable, educational, community and youth-related programs and events. The program is funded by donations made by members of PEC who voluntarily have their electric bill rounded up to the next dollar. About 11,600 members currently participate with the average of $6.00 a year per member. It truly shows that small change can make a difference.
