Local bear hunter tags possible record holder By K irsten Zoellner kzoellner@fillmorecountyjournal.com

When you think bear hunting, you may get the image of a burly, north woodsman holding a large rifle while stalking a massive beast. You may be surprised then to meet Jennifer Nolte, of Chatfield. The smallframed mother of three young children is hardly the stereotypical hunting image, but her skills with a bow are nothing less than impressive. Nolte, along with husband Chad and friend Tim Melver, of Preston, recently returned

from a hunting excursion in Ignace, Ontario with quite a tale to tell. While the trio is still awaiting official news, following a 60-day wait period, Jennifer may have tagged the largest black bear ever shot by a woman. There’s no doubt that the bear will at least make the top ten record book. With the season opening this past August 15, the trio made arrangements to hunt through an outfitter. The way the system works is much different than the lottery-type hunting here, due to the high number of bears in Ontario.

“The outfitter purchases a permit for a 150 square mile piece of land in a bear management area,” says Melver. “It’s wild hunting, on provincial land, exclusively open to only nonresidents, and we purchase our tags through the outfitter. It’s actually really affordable.” While it was Melver’s fourth bear hunting trip, it was the Noltes’ first bear expedition. In two days, Melver says the trio saw six bears and they tagged their bears in three days. To some it may sound terrifying, See BEAR HUNT Page 18 

Robert Vogel, Preservation Planner, explained to the Chatfield City Council at their August 27 meeting the process to designate the Center for the Arts as a local landmark. Paul Novotny was absent. Vogel had submitted a report to the Heritage Preservation Commission detailing the history and plans for the 1936 auditorium and the 1916 high school buildings in January. Another copy was sent to the Minnesota Historical Society for review and comment. The Minnesota Historical Society noted in a June letter that the “auditorium-gymnasium is a well-preserved example of a Public Works Administration project, thereby serving to illustrate the benefits of the federal relief program at the local level.” The letter continued that the Chatfield High School and Auditorium Gymnasium is “an ideal candidate for local designation under the City’s local preservation ordinance.” Vogel commented that all the legal requirements are in order. He said both buildings were built to last and saving the buildings can be a benefit in the future. The city can save by recycling the old buildings. Vogel suggested the buildings give a more interesting look to the city and would have been a $7 to $8 million investment in today’s dollars. He maintained local designation can open doors to more funding sources. Public Hearing Councilor Ken Jacobson asked if this designation would

limit renovation in any way. Vogel explained it is called rehabilitation rather than restoration, by using as much of the old as possible while making it usable in the twentyfirst century. Jacobson asked if modern materials can be used and Vogel said they could be. Robert Thesenvitz noted he was a 30-year resident of the city and confirmed he had voted to save Potter Auditorium. He said his fear is that we open up the door, causing taxpayers to foot the bill as they did for the Thurber Building. He asked if the designation will open up tax obligation to the whole district instead of just the city. Later, City Clerk Joel Young confirmed it would not open up a larger tax base. Thesenvitz maintained that the auditorium was supposed to be self supporting. He complained that meetings have been held in the afternoon when working people can not attend, resulting in a lack of public input. He asked the council to seriously look at the benefit of this designation and inquired about the possibility of a listing on the National Historic Register. Young stated local designation is completely different than the national register. Vogel commented it would be redundant to have both. He said he didn’t think there would be enough benefit for the cost. Councilor Josh Thompson asked if the designation will open doors for more funding. See CHATFIELD Page 14 

C ommentary Gridlock, unhealthy for our economy By Karen Reisner Recent reports from the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO) and the Pew Research Center are evidence that the era of gridlock in Congress has not been healthy for American personal pocketbooks or government financ- Karen Reisner es. When the United States entered World War II, Winston Churchill declared, “Americans can always be counted on to do the right thing. . .after they have exhausted all other possibilities.” Apply his thinking to our Congress and we have a very eloquent way of saying, our lawmakers “kick the can down the road” or avoid the inevitable until they are cornered and forced into making the hard decisions. Delay has only magnified the economic problems. The failure of our lawmakers to develop a long-term balanced plan that will both increase revenue and trim government programs including Medicare and defense is a threat to our economic future well being. Many believe a long-term plan that allows for measured changes so as to not damage the current slow economic recovery is a necessity. CBO On August 22 the CBO in its annual summer update maintained that if Congress does nothing and lets the scheduled

tax policies, including the end of the Bush tax cuts and the payroll tax holiday, and spending policies, scheduled reductions in domestic and defense spending, take effect at the beginning of 2013, tax revenue will go up and spending will go down and likely drive the country into recession. Resulting job loses could cause unemployment to rise over nine percent. This huge shift, anything but measured plan, would be a significant shock to the economy. The deal for the automatic spending cuts was signed into law a year ago, and there still is no one at the switch to keep the slow motion train from going over the cliff. There is a consensus among most lawmakers that they need to do something, but as usual, the polarization of Congress is getting in the way. The projected deficit for 2013 would be about $500 billion less than the $1.1 trillion projected for 2012 if Congress does nothing. If the above policies were continued for 10 years, the CBO estimates the country’s debt held by the public would be reduced from 73 percent of GDP in 2012 to 58 percent of GDP in 2022. However, if Congress moves to continue current policy, then deficits will be almost 90 percent of GDP by 2022. Current policy is not a viable option, nor is doing nothing, thereby letting the so-called fiscal cliff happen. Both parties have participated in the gridlock or the inaction that has put this slowly recovering economy at risk.

With the upcoming elections lawmakers lack the courage to make the tough decisions. It is reasonable to believe that with the country nearly as polarized as Congress neither party is going to get a “mandate.” Not much will be different after the elections except the next election will be two years off. If Congress would act before the election, the electorate would more truly know where serving congressional people stand on the issues. Bipartisan commissions have come up with reasonable and studied plans to deal with the ballooning deficits and the country’s growing debt, taking into account the long-term needs and future demands of entitlement programs, due to projected growth in numbers of elderly people in the coming years. Pew Research Center For the first time since World War II, during the decade from 2000 to 2010, the middle class is less prosperous than the previous decade. Pew refers to these years as “the lost decade.” It found a shrinking middle class with declining income and wealth. Twenty-five hundred and eight adults were surveyed, of which 1,287 identified themselves as middle class. Rich Morin, senior editor for the Pew Research Center, maintained that political scientists believe the key to a functioning democracy is a functioning middle class. Upper income households were ‘more’ prosperous in the ten-year period with 46 percent of total household income in 2010 compared to 29 percent of the total household

income enjoyed by this group in 1971. The middle class percent of total household income fell from 62 percent in 1971 to 45 percent in 2010. Middle class net worth has dropped 28 percent over the last decade partly due to lost value in their homes. Middle class income has fell about $3,500 over the last decade. People put most of the blame for the lost decade on Congress, 62 percent. They also blame financial institutions, larger corporations, and foreign competition to a lesser extent. More people put blame on the Bush administration (44 percent), than blame the Obama administration (34 percent). Only

about eight percent place some of the blame on themselves. I agree Congress deserves most of the blame due to a general reluctance to work together to solve fiscal problems facing the country. The delay only puts more strains on the economy. Regardless of their distinctly different underlying political philosophies, the only reasonable solution is a blending of ideas and vision toward goals of fiscal growth while protecting the vulnerable. The country’s problems have grown in part due to the inability of members of Congress to put a balanced longSee GRIDLOCK Page 5 

range fiscal plan into place. This will avoid across the board indiscriminate spending cuts, will deal with the large deficits, will reform the ridiculously complicated tax code, which is riddled with loopholes, and will make necessary reforms to Medicare and other entitlement

programs to preserve them for years to come. In addition, Congress deserves blame for their general inability to define the problems truthfully to the American people. Congress has only a 12 percent approval rating; well deserved. Doing Our Part Both of these reports illustrate what needs to be addressed by Congress. Con-

gress has exhausted all other possibilities, now it is time for them to do the right thing for the country. They have continued to pass legislation that doesn’t attempt to put any realistic fix into place, but only to keep the government limping along until the next deadline approaches. This is not sustainable and has a negative impact on the economy.

Shouldn’t we all be Americans first? By Lee H. Hamilton I was first elected to Congress in 1964. That was the year Lyndon Johnson won a full term as president in a landslide. If ever a president had a popular mandate to pursue his goals, it was LBJ in the few years that followed that election. Yet one of my strongest memories of him is not of a president reveling in partisan supremacy, but of his cautionLee Hamilton ing against it. Johnson used to love meeting with freshman members of Congress, and after taking office we Democrats who’d been elected along with him had every expectation that he would allow us to bask at the expense of our Republican colleagues. He didn’t. “I’m an American first,” he told us. “And I’m a Democrat second.” It was a bracing affirmation of a quality essential to national leadership — a firm conviction that the good of the country comes first, even if it runs coun-

ter to the interests of one’s political party. I can’t help thinking of it today, in an era when deep, seemingly unbridgeable differences divide Democrats and Republicans, and when these divisions are being stoked by the current presidential campaign. It has been apparent almost since the beginning that our nation’s welfare rides on how well political leaders balance the needs of the country against their partisan goals. In 1796, preparing to step down from the presidency, George Washington devoted much of his Farewell Address to this question, and to the destructiveness of what he called “the fury of party spirit.” Surveying with alarm the regional discord and the growing hostility between Federalists and the Republicans that took hold in the final years of his second term, he set out to warn Americans that the very permanency of the Union depended on “a government for the whole.” Other national leaders understood the sentiment. Patrick Henry’s famous statement, “United we stand, divided we fall” was followed by these words: “Let us not split into

factions which must destroy that union upon which our existence hangs.” “We are all Republicans, we are all Federalists,” Thomas Jefferson said in his first inaugural address. Each of these leaders signaled a bedrock belief in the importance of working together to bridge differences and find common ground because the nation’s welfare demanded it, regardless of the dictates of a party’s extremes. Now, I’m not urging that we be naive. We’re not going to abolish parties, and we shouldn’t. They help us organize our political choices, define and advocate issues, and make sense of elections. But if we’re not careful, they can be carried to such an extreme that they divide government, when what we need is unity of government. We need it in foreign affairs, where the more united we are as a nation, the stronger we are. And we need it in domestic policy, where excessive partisanship agitates the people and creates animosities among them. It leads to distrust within Congress, mistrust of Washing-

ing of the issues. We need to do our homework to learn about the candidates and exercise our right to vote or we can’t complain about the lawmakers we get. Let’s hope Churchill is correct, that Americans and Congress can be counted on to do the right thing. To this point, surely, all other possibilities have been exhausted.

ton, weaker administration of government, and an inability to resolve the problems that press against our future. If you doubt any of this, just look around. It is extraordinarily difficult to create a government that works together for the common good. One reason most presidents end up talking about the unity of the country and of government is because they, more than most of us, can see the centrifugal forces of region, ethnicity, religion, and ideology at work. They know that there is no magic formula for balancing them all. But in this era of unforgiving partisanship, it is too easy to forget the importance of trying — and of working hard not to

fan the flames of divisiveness. It is crucial to avoid painting the other side as un-American or eager to betray the national interest, just as it is to recognize that we have more in common than we have differences. Our differences are important; they are part of who we are as a nation. But if we want to overcome our challenges and preserve our greatness, unity is indispensable. The great work of our democracy, as it has been for over 200 years, is learning how to reconcile the two. Lee Hamilton is Director of the Center on Congress at Indiana University.

Letter about sand mining To the Editor, Jim, thank you for your excellent letter to the editor about sand mining. You hit the nail right on the head. A group of people that their only intention is to kill the sand mining industry or any other project does no one any good. Also, I see that the L. S. P. (Land Stewardship Project) is opposing it. Their own agenda is always very narrow and political. Usually they want to zone their neighbors out of business. They to want property rights for themselves; but not their neighbors. We do need zoning regulations, but they need to be reasonable. Fillmore County needs every job possible. The county has about the lowest per capita income in S.E. Minnesota. We have employment issues and health care issues. Our work

force leaves the county for work in nearby counties and there goes our young families. It is apparent in our schools and churches that the county’s young population is going downhill. Lets use our energy towards a positive point of view and everyone will be ahead. The journey is not going to be an easy one anyway. Merwood Storhoff Lanesboro, MN

cent or close to where the City reserves should be. “The 2013 budget demonstrates that we are working within our means to provide City services while lowering the local tax burden” Said Mayor Paul Perry. He added that City staff have taken concrete steps to ensure cost savings and to maintain expected levels of service.” City Administrator Algadi said that recent consolidation of Waste Water Treatment facilities with Public Works Department saved the City an average of $60,000/year. This consolidation will ensure proper long term maintenance and operation of City facilities. Add to that the fact that the City refinanced its

some of its debt to take advantage of lower interest rates earlier this year. Algadi said that the City’s bond rating remains very strong at an “A+” the highest rating for a City our size. The City is moving to program various investment projects in the next five years to help complete street projects. In addition, the City Council directed staff to move forward with obtaining total price estimates for repairing the City’s pool. “The main goal of the repairs is to make sure we have a viable pool facility for the families of Pine Island for the next 20 years,” Mayor Perry stated.

Pine Island- MN. The Pine Island City Council voted Tuesday night August 21 to adopt the City’s 2013 budget. Adopting the preliminary budget is the first step prior to the City certifying the tax levy to the County in December 2012. The 2013 budget levy amount of $1,090,000 is 9.765 percent or $122,201 less than that of 2012. The reduction in levy will not impact level of public service. The approved reduction in tax levy is expected to maintain operating reserves at a level above 25 percent. If Local Government Aid (LGA) comes in at the amounts certified to the City is 2011 then City operating reserve will end up at around 35 per-

ROCHESTER, MN—American Red Cross volunteer Gary Peterson of Rochester went to Hattiesburg, Mississippi on Monday to assist as the Red Cross prepares for Hurricane Isaac in the southeast. Peterson has volunteered on Red Cross relief operations in the past, and is ready to be dispatched to other areas of the southeast as the need arises from the flooding expected from Isaac. In response to Hurricane Isaac, Peterson will be working as a government liaison supervisor and will coordinate Red Cross efforts with those of city, state and national officials to ensure effective service for those who may be displaced by the storm and anticipated flooding. He is expected to remain in the region for three weeks. The American Red Cross has already deployed more than 1,000 trained disaster workers throughout Florida and has materials and supplies positioned for use, including pre-stocking 30,000 ready-to-eat meals in Florida and two mobile kitchens sent to the state. Meanwhile, the Red Cross also is mobilizing disaster workers, emergency vehicles, mobile kitchens and relief supplies to Alabama, Louisiana and Mississippi as Isaac is

Rochester Public Library Bookmobile open house The public is invited to the Rochester Public Library on Monday, September 17, 2012, for an open house from 11:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. to celebrate the launch of the new bookmobile. The vehicle will be parked on 2nd St. SE in front of the library for the public to climb aboard and take a look inside. The celebration continues in the library auditorium with light refreshments and a drive down memory lane with the old bookmobiles. Mayor Ardell Brede will be presenting at 11:00 a.m. The concept of a bookmobile in Rochester was first brought up in 1946 by librarian Lucille Gottry. It wasn’t until 20 years later, October 24, 1966, that the bookmobile became a reality when the first vehicle went into service with a rotating collection of 5,000 volumes select-

ed to appeal to both children and adults. A larger bookmobile replaced the original in 1978 and yet an even larger one replaced that one in 1997. The newest bookmobile will arrive in Rochester during the second week of September and will go into service soon after. It will be even larger than the last and features green technology: a hybrid drive train and generator, solar panels, LED lights and recycled rubber floors. Currently the Rochester Public Library bookmobile has the highest circulation of any other bookmobile in Minnesota. It visits over 77 different neighborhoods in the City of Rochester and Olmsted County targeting areas in the community where there are geographic, transportation, economic and other barriers to using the main library.

ROCHESTER, Minn. – When Dick Read’s refrigerator broke his older brother Mike got him a new one. When his garbage disposal broke Mike replaced that too. And when Dick was bed-ridden with illness it was Mike who insisted he go to Mayo Clinic for care. The Hugo, Minn., man spent July 2011 in Rochester undergoing extensive treatments for multiple myeloma. He needed another repair done – a replacement door panel for his 1998 Ford Taurus. In cruising the Rochester Ford website, Dick happened upon an ad for the annual PossAbilities Classic Car Raffle and decided to try his luck at winning the prize – a new Mustang convertible – for his Good Samaritan brother Mike to repay him his favors. A long-time Mustang lover, Mike also vied to win the raffle. That summer neither Read brother took home the Mustang; it was won by a retired farmer in Oronoco. But on Aug. 17, 2012, at Strikers Corner in Stewartville a different tale unfolded. Dick left his job at Delta in Bloomington, Minn., at 6:30 p.m. and hit the road hoping to make the 8 p.m. raffle, held in conjunction with the Stewie Cruisers Car Show in Stewartville. He parked by a fire

hydrant outside Strikers and joined the gathered crowd just as PossAbilities client Merle reached into the raffle wheel and pulled out a ticket Dick had bought in Mike’s name. “I heard Mike’s name announced clear as a bell,” Dick said afterward. “I was a little teary and totally psyched.” Mike was reached at home in Mounds View and said he was watching Scooby-Doo with his four-year-old granddaughter. On Aug. 20 he, his wife Karen and Dick car pooled to Rochester to claim the 2012 V6 convertible Mustang. Mike drove it home and added it to his Mustang collection of a 1966 rebuilt convertible and a 1967 coupe that he’s been “resurrecting for the last 32 years.” It’s Mike, older by one year, who is the jokester of the family. In fact, remarked Karen, many of Mike’s friends didn’t believe him when he announced he won a new Mustang through a non-profit raffle in Rochester. Dick is the effusive brother, prone to tears, hugs and photo taking. PossAbilities staff nicknamed them “the Read boys” and sent them off with the car and Agency t-shirts on Aug. 20. As for Dick’s health, his Mayo doctors cleared him of

all restrictions so he’s back on the treadmill, lifting weights and plans to snowmobile this winter. And as for the PossAbilities 2013 Classic Car Raffle the Read brothers agree, “We’ll be there.” PossAbilities is a non-profit agency serving children and adults with disabilities in Rochester, Minn. Its Classic Car Raffle is a fundraiser held each summer.

605 drunk driving arrests to-date during statewide campaign ST. PAUL — Minnesota law enforcement officers have arrested 605 drunk drivers two weekends into a statewide DWI enforcement campaign, according to Department of Public Safety (DPS) Office of Traffic Safety preliminary reports. The Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over enforcement campaign runs through Labor Day. State officials are urging Minnesotans to plan ahead for a sober ride to avoid the dangers and harsh consequences of a DWI. A similar DWI crackdown to close out summer in 2011 resulted in 1,787 DWI arrests. “There is no excuse for drunk driving, but far too often people find an excuse and find themselves in serious trouble,” says Lt. Eric Roeske of the State Patrol. “Close out the end to summer safely by having a safe and sober ride arranged in advance of celebrating.” Minnesota Drunk Driving Facts During the past five years, 2007– 2011, 651 people were killed in Minnesota drunk driving crashes, accounting for one-third of the state’s 2,165 total road deaths: 2011 — 111; 2010 — 121; 2009 — 112; 2008 — 137; 2007 — 170. Officials say the 34 percent reduction in drunk driving deaths from five years ago points to motorist making smart plans for a sober ride and the effectiveness of enhanced enforcement and education campaigns. In 2011, 29,257 motorists were

arrested for DWI, the average alcohol-concentration of an offender was 0.16. One in seven Minnesota drivers have a DWI on record. Consequences of a DWI A DWI offense can result in loss of license for up to a year, thousands in costs and possible jail time. Repeat DWI offenders, as well as first-time offenders arrested at 0.16 and above alcohol-concentration level, must use ignition interlock in order to regain legal driving privileges, or face at least one year without a driver’s license. Offenders with three or more offenses are required to use interlock for three to six years, or they will never regain driving privileges. Each year in Minnesota, 40 percent of the alcohol-related traffic deaths involve repeat offenders. Tips to Prevent Drunk Driving •Plan for a safe ride — designate a sober driver, use a cab/public transportation, or stay at the location of the celebration. Let family/ friends know you are available to offer a safe ride home. •Buckle up and wear protective motorcycle gear — the best defenses against a drunk driver. •Report drunk driving — call 911 when witnessing impaired driving behavior. Be prepared to provide location, license plate number and observed dangerous behavior. About the Office of Traffic Safety The Minnesota Department of

Public Safety Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) designs, implements, and coordinates federally funded traffic safety enforcement and education programs to improve driver behaviors and reduce the deaths and serious injuries that occur on Minnesota roads. OTS also administers state funds for motorcycle safety programs and child seats for needy families. OTS is an anchoring partner of the state’s Toward Zero Deaths traffic safety initiative. A primary vision of the TZD program is to create a safe driving culture in Minnesota in which motorists support a goal of zero road fatalities by practic-

ing and promoting safe and smart driving behavior. TZD focuses on the application of four strategic areas to reduce crashes — education, enforcement, engineering and emergency trauma response. Office of Traffic Safety Highlights •23,285 speeders were ticketed during a July statewide speed campaign. •OTS issued the 2011 Minnesota Motor Vehicle Crash Facts report, citing 368 traffic deaths for the year, the lowest since 1944 and a 44 percent reduction in deaths from a decade ago. •OTS recognized the state’s DWI

Enforcer All-Stars at Target Field June 25. The leading DWI enforcer is Minnesota State Patrol Trooper Mark Hibbard with 241 DWI arrests in 2011. •July 1 marked one year of the state’s ignition interlock DWI sanction. More than 4,000 DWI offenders are using ignition interlock to benefit road safety and ensure legal, sober driving. •Media are encouraged to download and broadcast or place OTS public service announcements to advance road safety. •Media are encouraged to localize traffic safety news by referencing county-specific crash facts.

Rachel Reader

A Playwright for All Seasons—Ibsen and An Enemy of the People By Rachel Hammer Henrik Ibsen’s An Enemy of the People is a 19th century Norwegian socia l-problem play examining what happens to the political minority in times of crisis. Ibsen asks how those at the ideological outposts of society treated when their views clash with the majority under the spotlight? What is truth without power? Dr. Stockmann, a citizen in the Norwegian equivalent of Pine Island, MN, discovers that the community bathing springs are contaminated with dangerous toxins. As the town’s doctor, he believes it is his duty to alert the public. Because the springs are small town’s

only tourist attraction, Stockmann’s brother, the mayor, wants to keep the health report quiet. What ensues is a political dog fight between the town doctor, the mayor, the popular press, Stockmann’s wife and children, and eventually, the whole town as pressure builds and societal discomfort is systematically concentrated upon one f i g u r e — t he truth teller. Ibsen wrote An Enemy of the People, Arthur Miller says, as a response to widespread disapproval of his play Ghosts. To Victorian audiences, Ghosts was shocking and sordid because the characters were susceptible to venereal disease despite their moral lifestyles.

Ibsen had hoped Ghosts would be regarded as revolutionary, when instead, it was regarded as revolting. So in Dr. Stockmann’s character, it is not hard to see a pride-aching Ibsen peeking through the mask. Stockmann believes he offers the public the truth. When the truth is refused by the majority, he becomes the “enemy of the people” for holding fast to it. In literature as retaliation, I muse upon where to draw the line between the charm of an appropriate touché and the immaturity/awkwardness of an overextended backlash. In this case, Ibsen not only uses the play to backlash, but he drives a freight train with the I’m Right! caboose straight through the theater. Stockmann’s righteous tirades go on and on. He will not stand for the “colossal stupidity of the authorities!” Ibsen seems to be speaking on his own behalf in speeches like the following: “I propose to raise a revolution against the lie that the majority has the monopoly of the truth. . . These ‘majority truths’ are like last year’s cured meat—like rancid, tainted ham; and they are the origin of the moral scurvy that is rampant in our communities!” This point is salient when first made. It is diluted as Dr. Stockmann returns to it

Call the OCJ at 507-288-5201 to advertise or offer news tips! again and again and again. Fortunately, Arthur Miller stripped many of these repetitive speeches in his 1950 adaptation, and because he updated some of Ibsen’s antiquated references, trimmed the ending (three acts instead of five), and focused the plot (rather than Ibsen’s personal agenda regarding Ghosts), I recommend the Miller version of the play rather than any earlier translation. There are instances in the text, however, that could be construed as though Ibsen intentionally wrote Dr. Stockmann’s character going too far (Stockmann says the antagonistic majority ought to be “razed to the ground” and “exterminated like vermin” for disapproving of him and rejecting of the truth). Perhaps Ibsen did so to exhibit his own repentant self-awareness, to suggest that in his reaction to the critics of Ghosts he too went too far. Late in the

play, Dr. Stockmann devolves to exude nauseating grandiosity, likening himself to a savior figure, or a prophet with a “great revelation” to deliver unto the people. The people react strongly, labeling Stockmann blasphemous (verbatim commentary from Ghosts reviews); perhaps Ibsen was suggesting that the people were right in saying so. Regardless of Ibsen’s personal agenda for this play, it is a fascinating read for an audience 130 years after An Enemy of the People debuted (1882) who will realize that frustration with corrupted leadership, choke-chain tethering (Ibsen calls “moderation”) of the individual autonomy to the public interest, and danger for those holding views contrary to the majority are ageless issues— in fact, they seem to be seizing front and center stage as we take our seats in the public theater for another election season.

Vogel said the honorary status on the buildings attract interest and investment, adding the designation will be a very positive development. Jacobson worried that buildings under this designation will have a higher cost for renovation due to requirements to follow certain regulations. He insisted he didn’t want to be put into that box. Thompson was concerned they could be forced to do something they are not prepared for. Vogel said you can only do what you can when you can. The council approved a motion to direct the city attorney to draft an ordinance as the code requires to designate the Center for the Arts property as a Chatfield Heritage Landmark. Jacobson voted against. Preliminary Budget/Levy Young noted that the preliminary numbers are a result of budget numbers from department heads. The budget includes a three percent increase in the general pay grid, step increases, and a 10 percent increase in health insurance

In written information relating to the budget, it was noted that the EDA has as one of its priorities the redevelopment of the Twiford Street area (area bounded by Twiford Street, Division Street, Main Street, and Grove Street). The EDA has requested a yearly additional allocation of $20,000 to provide funds to assemble the property to re-develop this area. There is no increase for 2013 to the subsidy provided for the Center for the Arts. The refunding of 2008 bonds results in a decrease in debt service payments in the amount of $17,000 per year. Young noted that there will be some need to address water and sewer rates. The council will not vote on the preliminary levy until the September 10 meeting.

The repair is expected to extend the life of the roofs by several years. •Approval was given for the proposal from Infratech, out of Rogers, for the sewer maintenance program, as recommended by the Public Works Committee.

Food For Life By Jade Sexton

loved to help me do any cooking or baking. If I do it without her, she gets very upset. She is only six now, but she recently made a batch of cupcakes from a box mix. Last night she made Hamburger Helper, with my supervision of course, while standing on a chair in front of the stove. I frequently hear the words, “I’ll do it!” come from her mouth. She asks me what she should do and I help her, but she is very independent. For me, cooking has become a relaxing and enjoyable pastime instead of a chore. It’s true that I don’t always have time to make a decent meal, but I appreciate it when I do. I also love cooking for other people, so I love it when I have a friend over and I can make them something they may have never had before. I know I have mentioned qui-

The joy of cooking It wasn’t until my daughter was a baby and developed multiple food allergies that I really started exploring the art of cooking. I had to religiously read food labels, and was surprised at what I found. I found it easiest and best to make her food myself. I had to take something with us for her to eat whenever we went out, and she could rarely eat what others were eating. Most of the time, I made one meal for Grace and I to eat, and another for the rest of the family. For years, we ate everything together, usually off the same plate, usually with her on my lap. Sometimes I miss those days. As she has grown older, Grace has outgrown all of her allergies except peanuts, and she has also developed a love of cooking. Since a very young age, she has

It is a great way to try quinoa for the first time, and a great, easy

Recycling 101 By LaVerne C. Paulson, Recycling Education Coordinator It is not too soon to start thinking about Fillmore County’s next Household Hazardous Waste event. As in the past, the fall event will be held on the first Tuesday of October. This year, the date is October 2. On that day, we will gladly accept your donations of household hazardous waste from noon until 5:00 pm. Although unwanted paint is, by far, the most common HHW item, there are most likely many other nasty substances that you would rather not have in and around your home. The items accepted are, in fact, hazardous and should not be included in your landfill garbage. As usual, there will be a notice in your local newspapers again reminding you of the date and what will be accepted. However, you may want to start rounding up some items a bit early, so you have them collected well in advance. If you have neighbors that are unable to attend this event, you can certainly bring their items, as well. Please keep in mind this is Household Hazardous Waste and agricultural chemicals, explosives, medical waste, business waste, radioactive waste, and empty cans are items that are not accepted

during this collection. We will also be collecting lead this fall, mostly in the form of fishing tackle and wheel weights. Lead is the cause of death for many of our birds, including the Bald Eagle, each year. If they eat meat containing lead, it enters their blood stream and damages the brain. There are alternative sinkers and other tackle available to take the place of lead. Due to the gun powder in bullets, we cannot accept ammunition at this time. There are thousands of button batteries used by Fillmore County residents each year, but most of them are finding their way into the landfill. Button batteries, like the kind used in hearing aids, even though quite small, contain some not-so-nice elements that may sooner or later, find their way into our drinking water. A set of hearing aids will use up to a hundred batteries each year which will account for a sizable amount of poison. Burning batteries, also not advised, can explode and cause serious injury. Burning batteries sends poisons into the air to fall back to earth as different forms of precipitation. These poisons are polluting our lakes, streams, fields and forests and sooner or later find

their way into humans by way of the food chain. The same is true for rechargeable batteries that contain cadmium, lithium, lead, and several other elements you don’t really need accumulating in your body. Mr. Grooters from the Fillmore Soil and Water Conservation District has informed me that their Annual Field Day for Fillmore County sixth grade students has been scheduled for September 19 at Forestville State Park. If this year is similar to previous years, I will be chatting with at least one hundred eighty students and adults concerning recycling in Fillmore County. It is always a good day for learning from several presenters, but the gormet lunch served by the SWCD staff is definitely worth the trip. Thanks to many of you, we collected a bunch of bottles and cans during the fair and kept them out of the landfill. Thank you, also, for stopping by the Resource Recovery Center and Recycling Center exhibit at the fair. I had the opportunity to chat with a lot of people during the fair concerning recycling in Fillmore County. Your concerns and comments are always greatly appreciated. If you have any questions concerning Household Hazardous Waste Day, please don’t hesitate to call the Resource Recovery Center at 765-4704 or e-mail me at lpaulson@co.fillmore. mn.us<mailto:lpaulson@ co.fillmore.mn.us>

BEAR HUNT

being only 12-15 yards away from the bears in nothing but a portable tree stand, but Black Bears are not aggressive like their cousin, the Grizzly. Still, it’s thrilling for the hunter. “It’s an adrenaline rush!” enthuses Melver. The typical Black Bear male weighs 200 to 250 pounds on average, while the female of the species averages 200 pounds. On all fours, they stand at three to four feet high, but standing on their hind legs, they can reach seven feet in height. Melver and Chad Nolte’s bears weighed in around the 250 pound mark, while Jennifer’s prize was a whopping 403 pounds. Chad Nolte is a team mem-
