Local farmer leaves lasting legacy Ronald Pfantz’s $2 million bequest to Dollars for Scholars nearly doubles total pot of scholarship money
By Kyle Kuphal Ronald Pfantz kept mostly to himself in his later years, living at the
farm north of Cazenovia that he’d called home since he was two years old. “He was kind of a pri-
vate person,” said David Heard, a long-time friend and neighbor. “The farm was his life.” Heard described Pfantz
as a hard working intelligent man who valued education. Pfantz made this clear in 2005 when he donated nearly $1 mil-
lion to the local chapter of Dollars for Scholars after he retired from a lifetime of farming. Pfantz died in January
at the age of 94. His obituary was short compared to some and said nothing of the generous gift that he gave to Dollars for

Around 250 people went to the Pipestone Aquatic Center on opening day, Monday, June 4 - such as this young boy splashing in the fountains. With a clear sky and a high of 85 degrees, the weather was the nicest for an opening day in the center’s 15-year existence, according to Stacy Claussen, Pipestone recreation director.

Wolters was remodeled from a grower/finishing barn to a second research facility leased by Pipestone Veterinary Center (PVC)/Pipestone System Inc. for production research trials. The six-year-old building was empty for the tour. According to Terry Wolters, to build a new research facility would cost $900,000. As a
remodel, the cost was lower and was completed in about two weeks. Called RB2 or research barn two, Wolters said since research trials take six months to complete, his building will be able to double the number of trials conducted in a year and can repeat results from research barn one (RB1), located west of Pipestone. A third trail
barn will be constructed, but will focus on animal health and wellbeing. Dan Hanson, who manages RB1, led the tour and pointed out three areas where a research barn differs from a grower/finishing facility: Feeding, pen-

On Peter Pan: “It’s ostensibly a holiday entertainment for children but really a play for grown-up people.” - George Bernard Shaw, Irish playwright
Next week on Thursday, June 14, the Calumet Players will open a fully staged musical production of “Peter Pan” at the Pipestone Performing Arts Center. From selection to opening, the show has been a year in the making, with the cast and crew pulling
long hours since April for rehearsals, set creation and costume design. Always challenging to stage a musical given the number of people involved and “the integral parts that must work together,” said producer Mark Thode, “Peter Pan” was made even more difficult by a disagreement among key members of the production crew that threatened to unravel the show. Those familiar with the

Pipestone Artificial Breeders (PAB) liquidated three boar stud sites the week of May 21 due to loss of business as a result of a yet-to-be identified production event, followed by disease. The barns, all south of Pipestone, were used to produce fresh semen for delivery to customers in the five-state area. “Whatever it is – feed, water, pick it out of the airsome event caused what we classified as DNA fragmentation in the semen,” said Dr. Jay Bobb, Monday, who had been one of PAB’s four partners. The diminished product quality caused the “total born” to drop over a large number of sows. “We can prove that, but what we don’t know is what caused it in all three studs (sites) at the same time,” he said. With the dissolution of the three sites, a total 23 employees lost their jobs. “It was absolutely nothing that the employees did wrong,” Bobb said. “It was an event beyond their control. “It’s very, very hard on everybody involved to lose those employees because they were long-term employees and very, very loyal and good people.” The PAB stud sites that were liquidated – the boars were sold and the barns are up for sale - were known as PAB I, PAB II and PAB IV. PAB I had a capacity of 200 boars, PAB II 500 boars. PAB IV was essentially a “ghost barn, an isolation barn for the boars,” Bobb said. The barns weren’t at capacity. The semen produced at the barns went through rigorous testing prior to insemination. Those parameters never showed a drop, Bobb said. Yet the sows didn’t produce as expected.

Monument Guest Speaker series starts June 19 Adam Fortunate Eagle Nordwall to kick off series at the Pipestone Performing Arts Center By Debra Fitzgerald North of Pipestone National Monument on Hiawatha Ave. the campus of Minnesota West has replaced some 60 buildings that once comprised the campus of the Pipestone Indian Training School, where Native American students were educated between 1892 and 1953. Today, only the crumbling superintendent’s residence remains. “All structures were wiped out, just as our history was wiped out as far as the boarding school was concerned,” said Adam Fortunate Eagle Nordwall, a former student of the Indian Boarding School. “So it only exists in the memories of me and a few surviving students.” Those memories of Nordwall’s attendance from 1935-1945, particularly as they relate to the Pipestone National Monument and its quarries, will be available live on June 19, when Nordwall, 82, comes to Pipestone for a speaking engagement to be held at the Pipestone Performing Arts Center. Pipestone National Monument is sponsoring Nordwall’s appearance.
“We’re asking him to reflect on the time he was associated with the quarries and that comes from his time being at the Indian school,” said Monument Superintendent, Glen Livermont. “He was here; he was present at that time in his life. And that’s an early part of our history.” “The falls and the quarries were our extended playground,” said Nordwall, speaking by phone last week from his home on Nevada’s Paiute-Shoshone Reservation, where he lives with his Shoshone wife of four decades, Bobbie. “That’s the tie-in to Pipestone National Monument.” Nordwall’s talk will mark the first in the Monument’s new Guest Speaker Series where people with knowledge and experience with the Monument and its quarries will be invited to give talks that will be free and open to the public. The precedent for the series already exists at other National Park Service sites, Livermont said. “It’s something I thought we should look at trying here at Pipestone to help generate and provoke thought and understanding about the American Indian inter-
est in the community, the park and the history of the park,” Livermont said. The frequency of the speakers will depend upon funding, Livermont said, which will be provided in the future by the Friends of Pipestone National Monument. The responsibility for starting, developing, and implementing the series has gone to Mark Calamia, Monument cultural resources program manager and tribal liaison. “We’re hoping that the public will not only come to listen, but engage with the speakers,” Calamia said. “It’s their community and we’re doing this to enhance the community and of course promote the park, the Monument.” In recommending speakers, Calamia said he’ll be looking for “quality individuals who are knowledgeable who have experience with the community and the Monument, like Fortunate Eagle. “In the future, it’s not just going to be (American) Indians, it will be other people,” Calamia added. “We want to focus on the Monument and the history, but we’ll be looking at all aspects, historic and contemporary, as they relate to the Monument.”
Having Nordwall kick off the series came about from a project that was previously funded for the Monument, Livermont said, involving interviews with older folks who have histories of early quarrying or American Indian experience. “Adam certainly qualifies for that,” Livermont said. “We wanted to get that information. He of course, being Adam, is willing to share it. So we’re bringing him here to do that. But while he’s here, it was an obvious start for the Speaker Series. It’s serving a dual purpose.” Nordwall’s June visit will be his first return to Pipestone in at least five years. He said he last came to do research for his book (see sidebar) and slept in his car in the Minnesota West parking lot. He awoke in the morning to the sounds of crows cawing and experienced “a flood of wonderful memories.” The ideal audience he’s hoping his talk will draw to the Arts Center on June 19 will be “open-minded,” and “people who enjoy learning something of the past, especially young people who think we’re ancient history.”
2012 Watertower Festival button design selected Commemorative buttons featuring Karlee Kruger’s art now on sale By Debra Fitzgerald The phrase ‘third time’s the charm’ originates in the superstition that after two failures, a third attempt is more likely to succeed. Though the charm may have its place, Karlee Kruger’s persistence and skill won the day when her drawing was selected as this year’s commemorative button for the 23rd Annual Watertower Festival coming up on June 21-23. After trying “really hard the first two times” she entered the contest, Kruger’s design nabbed the majority of the votes cast earlier this year during the Pipestone Home and Health Show. Her design puts the round shape of the button to use as a baseball, in keeping with this year’s theme, “Take me out to the ballgame.” She said she was surprised when her art won. “I’m pretty proud of it,” she said. 53308

Aside from having her design immortalized on a button, Kruger will receive $50 in Chamber Bucks. Kruger, 18, daughter of Janet Kruger, and the deceased Todd Kruger, graduated this year from
Pipestone Area Schools. Last week she started a new job at Pizza Ranch. She plans to take the year off to figure out what she’d like to do before entering college. Now that Kruger’s design has been selected, the buttons are on sale for $5 at the Pipestone Chamber and Visitor’s Bureau. Proceeds from the button sales help support the Watertower Festival by funding festival entertainment and activities. Button holders are eligible for a number of discounts at local stores, as well as prizes – including a 40”

Volunteers needed to help host Tour de Kota riders The Tour de Kota Bicycle tour will ride into Pipestone on Tuesday, June 19, where they’ll stop for a couple hours at a lunch site that will be set up on the Pipestone County Courthouse lawn. The Pipestone Chamber is expecting about 500 riders, who will arrive around 11 a.m. from Brandon, S.D. on county Highway 56. Following lunch, the riders from the tri-state region will exit Pipestone on U.S. Highway 75 on their way to their overnight stop in Marshall. The Chamber has assumed
responsibility for preparing and serving the lunch and providing picnic tables, shade tents and portable toilets. However, it’s asking for community help and support to showcase Pipestone as an eventfilled, friendly town that riders should return to for a visit. BBQ pulled pork for the approximate 450 meals will be provided by J&B Group, and prepared by the Villager Restaurant. Donations of the following are still needed: large buns, condiments, small bags of chips, apples and bananas, bars or cookies (individually wrapped),
bottles of water, fountain Pepsi, paper plates and plastic ware and volunteer workers for serving between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. Donations of any amount would also be appreciated and will be listed on a sign at the event. The Chamber is also encouraging festival and event groups to set up a sign or booth on the grounds at no charge to promote their event. For more information on how to help, email the Chamber at pipecham@ pipestoneminnesota.com, or call (507) 825-3316.

Contrary Warrior: Author, activist, artist & political agitator By Debra Fitzgerald Adam Fortunate Eagle Nordwall, 82, chronicled his positive experience at the Pipestone Indian Boarding School in a book, “Pipestone: My life in an Indian boarding school,” published in 2010 by the University of Oklahoma Press. The book conveys Nordwall’s experiences at the school between 1935 when he entered the kindergarten class to 1945 when he graduated from eighth grade and moved on to Haskell Institute in Lawrence, Kans. Now in its third printing, the book received the American Indian Library Association (AILA) award this year. The AILA is an affiliate of the American Library Association. The Native American activist, author and artist is probably most well known for his well documented political stunts: He kicked off the orchestration of the 19-month American Indian occupation of Alcatraz in 1969 by offering the federal government $24 in bead and red cloth for the island the government had declared surplus property; he visited both Italy and Sweden, where he “discovered” the land for American Indians; and during a visit with Pope Paul, “we refused to kiss each others’ rings,” Nordwall recalled, speaking by phone last week. “That always gets the biggest laugh when people watch that documentary,” he added. ‘That documentary’ is, “Contrary Warrior: The Life and Times of Adam Fortunate Eagle,” released in 2010. Directed by John Ferry and produced by Lillimar Pictures, the documentary has aired on over 200 PBS stations nationwide, as well as New Zealand, Canada and Australia. The list of Nordwall’s antics proceeds through eight decades of, “general political agitating with a big dose of satire,” as Nordwall has described his particular style of activism. Closer to home, Nordwall, the son of an Ojibwe mother and Swedish father, had a hand in the founding of The Keepers of the Sacred Tradition of Pipe Makers and has been advocating the restoration of Winnewissa Falls at Pipestone National Monument by returning the waters to its natural course.

The skinny on Short for state rep.
When Gene Short retired in 2009 as the director of the End-O-Line Park and Museum in Currie, it was far from the end of the line for him. The 69-year-old has thrown his hat in the ring for the state legislature, and his party, the Democratic Farmer Labor (DFL) party, embraced him during the May 12 endorsement convention as their candidate to run against incumbent Joe Schomacker (R-Luverne). Thereâ€™s a 43-year age gap between Short and the 26-year-old Schomacker. But a man can meet a lot of people and accomplish much in that four-decade difference, according to Short, who sat down over lunch in early May at Kellyâ€™s Koffee to talk about his candidacy with his campaign manager, Deb Nelson, assistant to the city administrator for the city of Pipestone, also in attendance. â€œI have a few more miles on me than Joe does, but I can walk with the caucus in St. Paul through the hallways and know everybody there,â€? Short said. â€œAnd it makes a difference.â€? The â€˜itâ€™ he referred to is the leadership that comes with his experience â€“18 years and counting after 16 years as a Redwood County commissioner and now two years into his first term as a Currie City Council member. Though campaigns officially began when the candidacy filing period ended June 5, Short has been traveling District 22A since last October, attending caucus meetings in Nobles, Rock, Pipestone and Murray counties, and building his base while he awaited the official party endorsement and the official filing period. The issues that top his list are repayment of school funds, agriculture, rural development, renewable fuels, restoration of the Homestead Tax Credit and senior advocacy. â€œI have a real passion for taking care of our senior citizens and mak-
ing things a little easier for them,â€? he said. Shortâ€™s experience isnâ€™t limited to elected office. He served as President of the Association of Minnesota Counties, chairman of the Southwest Regional Development Commission in Slayton and served on the National Association of Counties Board of Directors, and as vice-chair of the Agriculture and Rural Affairs Policy committee. Positions like these drew him routinely to St. Paul where he said he made the connections that would enable him to â€œget things done. â€œAnd thatâ€™s what we need to do; get things done,â€? he said. One of those things would be to make sure the voice of rural Minnesota is heard in St. Paul. â€œAs I sat on rural development committees and vice chaired rural development ag (committees) for the National Association of Counties, it made me aware of the need for representation from the rural areas in Minnesota,â€? he said. â€œThere are getting to be fewer and fewer outstate legislators just because of the population decline. We have to work a little harder to get our communities working together as a whole.â€? When he and wife, Marge, moved from Redwood County to the Lake Shetek area of Currie in Murray County in 2009, the definition of â€œout-stateâ€? hit home. â€œAll of a sudden I feel like I donâ€™t live in Minnesota anymore,â€? he said. â€œThe TV we get is Sioux Falls. So last year for the elections, we watched Kristi Noem (South Dakota, U.S. Representative) and all that was happening there. â€œIf we canâ€™t get the FCC to change the catchment area that we are in, thinking that we all shop in South Dakota, if we canâ€™t get that changed, then we need to go to South Dakota and get a satellite station in Pipestone or Slayton,â€? Short continued. â€œMaybe we have to look at that aspect.â€? Though he and Marge may

The deputy wrote in the investigative report that they found DeWitteâ€™s child trying to eat apples off a tree outside. He hadnâ€™t seen his mom in a few days, the investigative report alleged, and hadnâ€™t eaten anything that day, or much the previous day, and was hungry. The deputy found the living conditions to be in â€œvery poorâ€? condition, with rotten and moldy food throughout the residence, including inside and on top of the childâ€™s bed, according to the investigative report. DeWitte was arrested after deputies tracked her down at her fatherâ€™s residence. She was argumentative and appeared to be under the influence of meth, according to the report.

Gene Short seeks to unseat Schomacker to represent District 22A By Debra Fitzgerald

Gene Short of Currie (above) is running on the DFL ticket for the District 22 A representative seat, currently held by incumbent Joe Schomacker (RLuverne). Pipestone Publishing/Debra Fitzgerald
have moved deeper into out-state Minnesota, redistricting was kind to his campaign geographically: He lives almost dead-center of District 22A now that most of Nobles County was removed from the district, all of Lincoln County was added, as well as eight townships of Lyon County. District 22A voters havenâ€™t put a DFLer in the House since 2002 when Republican Doug Magnus, now District 22â€™s retiring Senator, took Ted Winterâ€™s seat. Shortâ€™s banking that a DFLer with a bipartisan approach can be elected. â€œI think once we get the message out there that we want to work with both sides of the aisle, maybe it doesnâ€™t necessarily mean you have to vote one ticket or the other,â€? Short said. â€œThatâ€™s what weâ€™re endeavoring to have people do: vote for the person.â€? Born in St. Paul, Short grew up on a farm in North Dakota graduating from Walhalla High School. He received an Associates Degree in Heating, Air Conditioning, and Refrigeration Sales and Engineering from the State School of Science in Wahpeton, N.D. He spent the next 30 years in this profession working throughout the southern half of the state as well as the Twin Cities. At one time, he owned a small grocery store in Belview, Minn. Gene and Marge have six children, eight grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.
Megan Marie DeWitte, 24, of Holland, was charged with methamphetamine crimes related to children and for possessing methamphetamine in the fifth degree. Each of the two felony offenses carries a maximum sentence of fiveyears imprisonment and a fine of $10,000. According to the complaint filed June 1, deputies with the Buffalo Ridge Drug Task Force and the Pipestone County Sheriffâ€™s Office were allowed into DeWitteâ€™s residence at 540 Sioux St. in Holland to search for Coty Allen Tellinghuisen, her boyfriend, who was wanted on outstanding warrants and for failure to register as a predatory offender, according to the deputyâ€™s report of the investigation. While executing Tellinghuisenâ€™s arrest â€“ he surrendered after first hiding in the attic, according to the deputyâ€™s report - they noticed drug paraphernalia and marijuana in the residence. The officers arrested Tellinghuisen then obtained a warrant to search the residence and found within the living room baggies and straws containing methamphetamine, along with chil-

Plank was arrested after he failed a field sobriety test conducted by a Pipestone County Sheriffâ€™s Office deputy on May 13 around 12:44 a.m., according to the complaint filed May 14. Plank had been allegedly traveling at a high rate of speed and didnâ€™t stop at a stop sign at the intersection of Second Ave. NW and Second St. NW in downtown Pipestone when the deputy decided to follow Plank in his vehicle. Plank was stopped in the 700 block of Fourth St. NW. Plank was also charged with misdemeanor offenses of violating a stop sign and having a brown beer bottle and a Bud Light beer can open in the vehicle.

Newcomers mean brain gain
Rural Minnesota lures middle-aged newcomers, Univ. of Minn. study of Census data shows Rural Minnesota continued to attract new residents aged 30-to-49 between 2000 and 2010, according to a new study of U.S. Census data from University of Minnesota Extension. The news that people are moving into rural areas may seem counterintuitive, especially when headlines and book titles proclaim a â€œbrain drainâ€? and the supposed demise of rural America when 18- to 25-year-olds leave. But, according to Ben Winchester, University of Minnesota Extension rural sociologist and author of the study, the rural in-migration of 30-to 49-yearolds who bring with them educational achievements and established earning power creates a â€œbrain gainâ€? for these rural areas. The notion builds on research he first published
in 2009, examining 1990 and 2000 Census data. â€œItâ€™s the rule that young people move to pursue educational and career goals, not the exception,â€? said Winchester. â€œInstead of labeling that loss as â€˜doom and gloomâ€™ for rural, Iâ€™ve examined the population trends more deeply. Acknowledging the brain gain allows rural places to focus on their strengths and opportunities, which is the work of any community striving for a brighter future.â€? In the new report,â€œContinuing the Trend: The Brain Gain of the Newcomers,â€? Winchester updates Minnesotaâ€™s population shifts as captured by the 2010 Census and provides an examination of the trend at the national level. One new finding reveals that Greater Minnesotaâ€™s micropolitan counties, or those with core
urban populations of 10,000 to 49,999, are taking on metropolitan profilesâ€”with middleaged Minnesotans leaving for less densely-populated areas. The pattern is most prevalent in the southwest part of the state, around cities such as Willmar (Kandiyohi County), Marshall (Lyon County) and Mankato (Blue Earth County), according to Winchester. The new study also shows that a brain gain has continued in the 30-49 age group across the rural Midwest, but at a slower pace than was found from 1990 to 2000. External forces such as housing debt and the Great Recession slowed overall migration rates, according to Winchester. The Brookings Institution reports that in 20072008, the U. S. migration rate was found to be the lowest since World War II.

Recent Extension research on 30- to 49-year-olds shows they are choosing rural areas for a higher quality of life, specifically citing a slower pace, the low cost of housing, and safety and security. A study of 99 newcomer households in west central Minnesota showed that the average newcomer household contributed $92,000 in economic activity to the region in 2009 and 2010. â€œIn rural areas, little changes make a big difference,â€? Winchester said. â€œAnd these numbers certainly change the story.â€? To access the study (in PDF format), visit www.extension. umn.edu/go/1107.

Countryside / Commerce Improving yields through new techniques, hybrids Research, knowledge plot begins second year at location east of Pipestone By Mavis Fodness
ing up a portion of the 600 acres he and his wife, Vonda, farm because the knowledge gained from growing crops on familiar soils and farming practices have gone a long way in improving his yield production. Vander Top said when he began farming in 1990, the average corn yield was 120 bushels per acre. â€œAnd that was huge back then,â€? he said. Twenty years of corn technology later, the average acre yields 200 bushels, he said, adding the increase has not been as dramatic in soybeans, increasing from an average of 40 in 1990 to about 50 bushels per acre today. According to Glen Davis, president of Legend Seeds in DeSmet, S.D., there are 16 knowledge plots around the region, primarily in South Dakota and Minnesota. â€œThe only way we can be successful is for our customers to be successful,â€? Davis said. He said the knowledge plots showcase various hybrids, such as those with seed coatings, in various planting populations or at different soil depths. Two meetings are conducted during the year, Davis said. Last year, Vander Top hosted events in June and August. At harvest time, the company publishes the yield results for examination by producers, he said. While the knowledge plots examine corn and soybean hybrids available for purchase, Davis said the research plot is for the development of future corn hybrids. He said, the best way to do research is alongside existing crops.
Pipestoneâ€™s Cheney Vander Top is happy with the change in weather. â€œThe sunshine this week should kick everything up a little bit,â€? he said. For the past month, area fields much like Vander Topâ€™s, have undergone a barrage of weather elements. He said the most devastating one was the 4.5 inches of hard rain in mid-May. â€œIt definitely slowed things down,â€? he said. High winds, cooler temperatures and more rain were daily occurrences through the end of May. So far, the early June weather has been sunny and humid, much more conducive to growing crops, he said. The same weather variations occurred on the 12 acres Vander Top has given up from his farm operation along state Highway 30. This is the second year he has hosted knowledge and research plots for Legend Seeds. He said he doesnâ€™t mind giv-

â€œIt has to mimic the exact field conditions,â€? said Mike Knight, Legend Seeds researcher and agronomist. While Vander Top was planting, Knight was planting the 480 corn varieties on less than an acre of Vander Topâ€™s land on April 28. Due to the areaâ€™s rains, he finished planting May 10. More than a week ago, the Spencer, Iowa-based researcher traveled to the Pipestone research plot to view its progress. â€œItâ€™s very stressed,â€? he said. â€œItâ€™s tough for plants to produce without heat.â€? But cool and wet conditions are
typical Midwest spring weather conditions, said Knight, who has worked in corn research for 30 years, the last eight with Legend Seeds. He said he only expects about 15 percent of what he planted this year to make it another year in testing. â€œItâ€™s about four years away from being commercialized,â€? he said. Knight said testing a hybrid more than once before offering it to producers eliminates flukes that may occur in the test plot. He said his one-acre plots located in Minnesota, Iowa, Wisconsin, and North and South Dakota receive the same fertilizer and weed treatments as the
producerâ€™s entire field. He said some of his research plots have produced upwards of 370-bushels, but if the producer cannot replicate the same results throughout an entire field, his research doesnâ€™t help the producer. â€œNot an inch of ground in the Midwest is the same,â€? he said. â€œThe way economics have been the last few years, a product still has to produce yield in different conditions.â€? Using a rating scale from one to five, with one being the best, Knight said he rates varieties at different growing stages. He said his scale is very critical.

â€œThere is a very good chance Iâ€™ll never see a (one rating),â€? he said. â€œSomeplace along its development, it will fail.â€? Knight said ratings of two or three are good indicators that a corn variety can still yield in certain areas and he will test these varieties again next year in the same plot as well as in the other plots located in the five states. Varieties that receive consistent ratings of four or five wonâ€™t be tested again, he said. â€œA lot has changed in five years,â€? Knight said. â€œWe need to keep giving farmers knowledge and products that keep them profitable.â€?

â€œThere was a pig-and-a-half to a two-pig drop in total born,â€? Bobb said. â€œIt doesnâ€™t seem like much but when you put that over a large number of sows, itâ€™s significant.â€? Though Dr. Bobb said he couldnâ€™t say exactly how many sows were involved, he said the event affected 37 different farms.

â€œThe sow barns are owned by different people than the boars,â€? Bobb said. â€œSo the people with a 3,000sow barn, one pig-and-a-half less being born â€“ itâ€™s significant.â€? After the drop in total born, PRRS (porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome) broke out about three weeks ago in PAB II. The virus â€œwas the straw that broke the camelâ€™s back,â€? Bobb said. Founded in 1993, the PAB boar

PIC, an England-based, 40-yearold subsidiary of biotechnology company Genus plc., provides pig breeding stock and technical support for maximizing genetic potential to commercial pork producers, according to its website.

experts from around the world are trying to help PAB identify the event that caused the simultaneous production failure at multiple sites. â€œItâ€™s not happened before to anyoneâ€™s knowledge,â€? Bobb said. â€œI just wish â€“ everybody keeps waiting, hoping that we can get a really clear answer. Here we are eight weeks later and we still donâ€™t know for sure what caused the drop.â€? The search for a cause is working in tandem with efforts to save the only remaining barn: PAB III, which has close to 500 boars. If recovery occurs at that site, the cause of the failure at the other sites may appear
to be due to a feed â€œinsultâ€? event due to mold and/or mycotoxins. If no recovery is identified in the near future, the cause of the production losses may never be specifically identified or confirmed. At this point, Dr. Bobb said theyâ€™re optimistic about saving PAB III and retaining those employees. â€œThe employees are wonderful and weâ€™re going to do everything possible to save that last barn and maintain that and keep it going,â€? he said. â€œAll efforts are going toward that.â€?

Each day started with a Fly Away Send-off where the kids learned a new Bible verse and Bible truth with the theme, “Trust God!” At Wild Blue Bible Adventures, the Bible story was enacted with props and costumes. At Chadder’s Sky-High Movie, the kids learned to apply the Bible Point to real life. Fun new songs were sung at Up & Away Sing & Play. The Imagination Station was a stop filled with creativity and discovery. Sunday, the kids made huge bubbles. The kids got re-fueled at the Sky-Dive Diner and had fun at All-Star Games! At the end of the day we all came in for a Smooth Landing with a review of our Bible truth, Memory Verse and favorite song. VBS continued Monday - Thursday 9 a.m. to noon and will conclude with a program Thursday, June 7 at 6:30 p.m. Everyone in the community is invited to attend a community picnic at the Holland Park (under the watertower) from 5 p.m. to 6:15 p.m. You don’t have to have children in VBS to come for the picnic and stay for the program!

There will be a free community picnic at the Holland Park on Thursday, June 7 from 5-6:15 p.m. with the children’s VBS Finale program at the Presbyterian following at 6:30 p.m. Thursday morning of last week I visited with Irma Dreckman and Eileen Biever at Good Sam. Later that afternoon Fran Wittfoth and myself stopped at Falls Landing to spend time with Dorothy Roemeling. She seems to have adjusted to her new home. On the way out of the building I stopped to see Clara Hinz and she welcomed me and was so happy to have a hug. A dear friend of Marie Zeinstra who has been in the area spending time with family and friends is Hilda Gorter from Arizona. She was an overnight guest of Marie on Thursday so joined us for coffee Friday morning at the center.

I have been busy attending the open house held for recent high school graduates. On Saturday, May 27, following commencement exercises at Pipestone Area Schools, I congratulated David Waters at the home of his parents, Sheila and Randall Stevens at Pipestone. This past Saturday Angie DeWitte and I were at Rushmore for the reception held in honor of Claire McGinty Bents at the home of her parents Dwayne and Colleen. Claire graduated from Worthington High School on May 18. Later in the day we stopped at Slayton for the open house held in honor of Dean Kalos at the home of his grandparents, Bob and Marilyn Udstuen. As for the future plans of the above graduates – David will be joining the U.S. Navy in September, Claire will be attending St. Olaf College at Northfield and Dean was still undecided as to whether he was going on to school or working. Dorothy LaBrune had the pleasure of holding her and Don’s 19th greatgrandchild on Sunday, June 3, shortly after he made his appearance at Avera Pipestone Medical Center. The little boy will be named Benjamin after his great-great-grandfather Ben LaBrune, whom I knew and remember. Proud parents are Adam and Gretchen LaBrune of Flandreau. Little Ben at nine pounds has two sisters, Autumn and Summer, waiting for him at home. Grandparents are Tom and Marilyn Schomaker of Osage, Wyo., and Tim and Joyce LaBrune.

125 YEARS AGO June 3, 1887 The Bicycle Club took a spin to Woodstock and back Wednesday evening. They left here at 6:40 o’clock and arrived home at 9:20, having been gone just two hours and 40 minutes, while their actual riding time was two hours and ten minutes. Distance 24 miles. *** F.F.

At a recent meeting of the city council, that body voted to appropriate the sum of $200 for band uniforms, provided the balance of the required amount was raised through other channels and the total amount needed is estimated at $750. Officials of several local groups met Tuesday evening, and elected Monsg. Jos. Mangan as chairman of the uniform fund. It was decided to ask the people of Pipestone to make voluntary contributions to the fund, the project being one in which civic pride is at issue.

June 4, 1912 Next week will occur the annual commencement at the Pipestone Indian Training School, when a class of nine students will receive diplomas. *** There were a whole lot of surprised people in Marshall on Sunday, when the much vaunted ball team of that place, composed of salaried players, went down to defeat before the team from Pipestone. Most surprised of all were the Marshall players who, from all indications, had confidently expected the Pipestone aggregation to prove easy victims. It is doubtful if the Marshallites have fully recovered from their surprise yet *** The fourth annual graduation exercises of the Pipestone County Schools are announced to be held at the high school building in this city on Tuesday afternoon, June 11, 1912 at 2:30 o’clock and the public is invited to attend. The graduating class is composed of 22 students, from 13 of the school districts in the county.
June 4, 1962 Diplomas and handshakes were received by 114 Pipestone high school seniors from Dr. R.J. Kotval, chairman of the Board of Education at Commencement exercises held Friday evening in the high school gym. Friends, relatives and interested onlookers filled bleachers and balconies to the rafters and some found standing room only.
75 YEARS AGO June 1, 1937 George’s Bar on North Hiawatha Avenue changed hands on Monday, when George Boyer sold the establishment to Hugo Van’t Hof of Edgerton. The latter will move his family here as soon as school is closed. Mr. Boyer plans to return to Round Lake. *** An invitation to the music lovers of Pipestone to contribute to a fund to be used to outfit the Pipestone City Band, is extended by officials of local civic organizations.
25 YEARS AGO June 4, 1987 Pipestone’s Eagle Cafe closed its doors Friday. The café, a favorite coffee spot for the downtown business people had been operated by Mr. and Mrs. Stan Bodewitz for the past 21 months. He had reopened the café in August of 1985. Bodewitz said he will now manage the Mayfair Café on East Highway 30 starting June 8. He will also continue to take his lunch wagon to the Bayliner Marine plants twice daily at noon and 7 p.m. The food for Bayliner employees will now be prepared at the Mayfair. *** For the third straight year, Barry Hutchinson and Kris Kluis will be going to the State Tennis Tournament. That was decided Thursday at Blue Earth as the Arrow duo rebounded from an early loss to take second. *** Coach Bob Nangle will have a vanload of competitors in the state track meet this weekend in Osseo. In fact the 10 Pipestone high school athletes making the trip make up the largest PHS delegation in history.

Woodstock News by Annetta Legler What is so rare as a day in June, if ever come perfect day! And we were blessed over the weekend with such a perfect June Day... Thank You God! The weather was great for the outdoor wedding, that took place at Ed and Kathy O’Hearn’s Saturday June 2, uniting Kelsie Burmeister and Jesse Bleyenberg in Holy Matrimony. The serene setting and ceremony were witnessed by 225 guests. A reception and dance was held later that evening at the same place. Congratulations to the couple! Family members present for the Bleyenberg wedding included Ron and Twyla Karow, Hackensac, Lori Maas, Craig and Karen O’Hearn, Medford, and Mary Schmidt and friend, Lake Park, Iowa. Neighbors and friends gathered at the Darrel Drisbow, home Sunday afternoon to congratulate Darla on her graduation from PAS. Wishing Darla much success in her future! Randy and Nancy Janssen returned home Friday from Cambridge, Md. They visited with their daughter Tracy and her family, and attended the graduation ceremony of their granddaughter Breana Van Nieuwenhuyzen, from Countryside Christian School in Cambridge. Grandparents Rose and Rollie VanNiewenhuyzen made the trip also. Surprise guests were Gary and Mary VanderTop, as they came unannounced for the ceremony. Alyssa Veldhuizen and Mathias Pembercon were wed at a beautiful outdoor wedding on Saturday, June 2, at the Hazelton farm near Ihlen. Grandparents Bill and Audrey Veldhuizen came from Stephensville, Texas to attend the affair. Stuart Veldhuizen family also from Texas and his family made the long trip for a visit with his family. Bernice Doornbos’ dinner guests Sunday were Elmer and Marie Veldhuizen, Mavis Kruisselbrink and Bill and Audrey Veldhuizen. Wednesday morning Sophie and Jerold Schoolmeester, Emma Jasper, Bernice Doornbos, Arnie and Esther Veldhuizen and myself attended the funeral service for our cousin Eva Veldhuizen held at Reformed Church in Slayton. Eva was 86 years old. At the time of her birth in 1926, she weighed one pound four ounces! Can you imagine how tiny that is? How did she survive? Born at home with a twin sister, who passed away shortly after. She was kept in a shoebox, kept warm from the heat of the

cook stove oven! A miracle indeed! Eva never did grow very tall, maybe five feet, but had a smile as broad as she was tall! She and I had been friends for many years! The Elmer and Alfred Folkert families picnicked in Pipestone on Memorial Day. This tradition has been going on for over 40 years. Alfred’s family consisted of four girls who mostly live in the Lake Benton area. WHERE ARE THEY NOW—Elmer and Alma Folkerts Elmer and Alma lived three miles west of Woodstock for many years raising their three daughters and one son. Daughter Carol and Duane Laubach live in Worthington. Their daughter Emily Thompson lives in Marshall. Sara and Tom Endres live in Balaton.

Weather By Mark Anthony, KSAX-TV Chief Meteorologist We are now firmly into the month of June and temperatures will be very summer-like for the rest of the week and into the weekend. We should see lots of upper 70s and low to mid 80s for the rest of the week and into the weekend. Average high temperatures are now “usually” in the low to mid 70s across most of the area. We will experience above-normal temperatures at least through Sunday. The 30-Day Outlook for the month of June calls for “equal chances” for either above or below normal temperatures and equal chances for precipitation. In other words, there is no real indication for a surge of warm air that will stay with us for the next several weeks. Areas to our south do have solid computer models that back-up that part of the U.S. to have above normal temperatures. The month of June has started-off to be above normal in temperatures as they were during the month of May. We were four degrees above average during the month of May at St. Cloud and many other reported stations.
In addition, the Spring of 2012 is the “warmest Spring on record over central and southern Minnesota and is in the top five warmest over northern Minnesota.” Meteorological Spring (MarchMay) will finish with “an estimate of 54.0 degrees at the Twin Cities International Airport.” This will make it the “warmest spring on record since modern record keeping began in 1873.” Our warm weather will continue over this upcoming weekend! Have a great weekend and try to stay cool! Weather history: On this date in 1864 light frost was reported across parts of Minnesota as a cod air mass moved over the state of Minnesota. Weather fact: Frost definition: A deposit of “small white ice crystals formed on the ground or other surfaces when the temperature falls below freezing.” Moorhead…Low 61…High…82 Duluth…Low 49…High…70 Pipestone…Low 58…High…79 Twin Cities…Low 61…High…80 Rochester…Low 56…High…80 Marshall…Low 58…High…81 Mark, the chief meteorologist at KSAX-TV, lives with wife, Tracey, in Alexandria.

Ihlen Area Hi! Another big week has come and gone so it is time I get busy and get my column written. Yes I had a very big week. Gerri and Terry came on Friday, May 18 and spent the whole week with me and left on Monday, Memorial Day. Others who were here for several days were Mark, Kelly, Jordon, Jadan and Alexis Mathison who came on Friday and stayed until Monday. Pam, Doug Fey and Brandon and Colton Fey were here until Monday. Jode, Dennis, Samantha, Joicy and Abbey, all from Kingman, Ariz., spent three days with me. Others were Merna Hansen, Missy and Ty Hansen, Denny, Shari, Kendra, Kaden Doerr, Kody Doerr and friend, Heather, John and Susan Erch from Wolsey, S.D., Barb and Steve Eggerud, John and Cheryl Doerr, Teresa, Casandra and Chris Doerr and Janet Volmer from Loveland, Colo. She is my sister. She spent several days with me and I really enjoyed it. I don’t see her very often. Well you can see what my long weekend was like. Everyone had a good time and John and Terry did do things around here that needed to get done. I didn’t have much to do because the girls took over and I could just sit and watch and also tell them what has to be done, and give a few orders. They have decided that the next family reunion will be in August. Then all the family will be here with several other families who like to come to see me. I had a big surprise Tuesday when Marlys and Emery Braa from Virginia Beach, Va, stopped in to see me. They read my column all the time and are visiting Marlys’ sister, Mavis Larson of Jasper. Emery said he had to stop and give me a hug which I did get from both. That made my day. I think I would be shocked at how many people do read my column. Well so much for running off the mouth. Here is a cute story.

bumps and bents and scratches in my finish and my paint job is getting a little dull, but that is not the worst of it. My fenders are too wide to be considered stylish. They were once as slick as a little MG; now they look more like an old Buick. My seat cushions have split open at the seams. My seats are sagging. Seatbelts? I gave up all seatbelts when Krispy Creams opened a shop in my neighborhood! Air bags? Forget it. The only bags I have these days are under my eyes. Not counting the saddlebags of course. I have so many miles on my odometer. Sure, I’ve been many places and seen many things but when is the last time an appraiser factored life experience against depreciation? My headlights are out of focus and it is especially hard to see things up close. My traction is not as graceful as it once was. I slip and slide and skid and bump into things even in the best of weather. My whitewalls are stained with varicose veins. It takes me hours to reach my maximum speed. My fuel rate burns inefficiently. But here’s the worst of it. Almost every time I sneeze, cough or sputter – either my radiator leaks or my exhaust backfires! Here is a recipe I have never seen.

Temporary loss of power John 19:28-20:16 How many of you have ever lost power? I am not talking about you becoming physically exhausted, fatigued, worn-out or so tired that you plopped into your favorite chair and could not move for the rest of the night. I am talking about your house, your business or your farm losing electrical power. When the power went off, how long did you sit in darkness, darkness because the power outage happened at night and/or darkness because you did not know what caused the power to go off? Was the power off for 10 seconds or less? Was the power off for an hour or two? Was the power off for one, two or even three days? Did you ever wonder if it was going to come on again? What caused the power outage? Was the power outage caused by an ice storm, wind storm, snow storm or by someone smashing their vehicle into a pole? Was the power outage caused by a pre-planned repair job or upgrade by the electric company? Was it caused by a blown out transformer, or because of our overuse or by an animal? On Thursday, May 3, at about 2 oâ€™clock in the morning, a snake slithered its way onto some electrical equipment at the Lone Oak power substation at NW 164 Street and North MacArthur Boulevard in Northwest Oklahoma City, Okla. and by making contact with a switch, turned off the power to about 14,000 customers. The Oklahoma Gas and Electric Company had a crew on the scene within minutes. The crew was able to restore power in about an hour. What about the snake? The snake was electrocuted by its contact with the switch. The snake was so badly burned and mangled that no one could identify what kind of snake it was. One spokeswoman for the Oklahoma Gas and Electric said that there was not much left of the snake. The snake had made its way into the substation looking for higher ground because of flash flooding in the area caused by heavy rains. Many papers reported this loss of power event. One paper, the Pakistan Daily Times (May 5, 2012), referred to the snake as a serpent and the event as a criminal act. This all reminded me of an event that took place around 2,000 years ago. Jesus allowed Himself to be put to death. He was not electrocuted; He was crucified. Before He was nailed to the cross he was beaten so badly that it was hard to see who He was and I am sure that after his death, there really wasnâ€™t that much left to see that He was a man (Isaiah 53:2-3). The religious leaders and the people who mocked Him called Him every name in the book. I am sure that they called him a false prophet, a liar, a deceiver, a serpent and even the son of the devil (Matthew 12:22-37 and Mark 3:20-22). I am sure that they considered Him a criminal. I am sure that when Jesus gave up the spirit that they believed that they had put out His power and the power of His movement for good. Even the disciples believed that the power of and the person of Jesus was gone for good. They were all wrong. Jesus allowed Himself to die. He promised that He would do this and that He would take up His life and His power again (John 10). He told them all that this would only be temporary. The son died but not the Father. The Almighty and omnipotent God could have stopped Jesus from dying. He could have stopped this cruelty of humanity at any second. But that would have gone against His plan for us (John 3;16). He allowed His son to die. He could have raised Jesus up seconds, minutes, hours after His death. He could have raised Him up a day after His death. But He waited three days to fulfill the Scriptures. Jesus did rise from the dead just as He had said He would. The power has been restored. The power of man and the power of the devil could not keep Him in the grave. That power is available to all who believe in Jesus as Savior and Lord. I know that there are times when Satanâ€™s power appears stronger. Do not let him deceive you.The day will come when the real serpent will lose his power for good (Revelations 20:10). Pastor Carl E. Gearhart American Reformed Church Woodstock
