Jaunich hired as Sibley County administrator
By Dave Pedersen Correspondent When Sibley County Commissioners were asked if they had anything to report at the meeting on Tuesday, Jan. 8, County Commissioner Bill Pinske said yes, “I am relieved we got the county administrator hired.” Earlier in the meeting, the board unanimously voted to ratify the terms of employment for Matt Jaunich, who will leave his position as city administrator in Arlington to become the first administrator in Sibley County. The process started earlier in the year when Pinske made a statement proclaiming the county should either hire an administrator or stop talking about it. He said the discussions have taken place the past 10 years. The board agreed to hire a consulting service who directed the search and hire process and worked with Sibley County Human Resource Director Roseann Nagel. Jaunich was selected as the finalist at the meeting on Wednesday, Dec. 26, 2012. Jaunich will start in the position on Monday, Feb. 11, which fulfills the 30-day obligation to his former employer. Both Nagel and board members said they were very happy with how the process went. At the end of Tuesday’s meeting, Jaunich came to discuss the office situation. Jaunich said he was comfortable with either of the office space possibilities. He prefers to be next to the human resources director. However, if it is not cost effective to move things, he is comfortable with either space. Pinske was concerned that the administrator be able to talk to people in matters of a confidential nature and suggested a partition wall in the office to separate from the administrative assistant. The county is in the process of hiring a part-time assistant to the administrator. Jaunich was invited to take part in the interview process. Pinske asked Jaunich if he wanted to be involved in cer-

Commissioners assign responsibilities at meeting
By Dave Pedersen Correspondent The first act of business in the new year for the Sibley County Board of Commissioners was to organize and divide responsibilities at the meeting on Tuesday, Jan. 8. While assigning committees, the board kept in mind that the new county administrator, Matt Jaunich, may want to be involved. The Arlington city administrator, who will start in February, was assigned to a couple obvious committees, but said they can add him to others any time. County Commissioner Jim Swanson took over as board chairperson and County Commissioner Joy Cohrs was named as the vice chairperson. The Henderson Independent was the only bidder and was named as the official newspaper. The designation of the first and second newspaper for publication of the 2012 financial statement will be re-bid because only one bid was received and two are required. ance officer of their department.

Dr. Bergersen retires after 40-plus years
By Kurt Menk Editor Dr. Dean Bergersen’s first dream was to become a commercial airline pilot. The Minneapolis native was at a gathering with fellow Eagle Scout recipients and had an opportunity to meet with an executive in his field of interest. “Son, you won’t make it,” the aviation executive told the youngster. “You wear glasses.” “I’ll never forget that,” laughed Dr. Bergersen, who lettered in four sports and graduated from Patrick Henry High School in 1962. His second dream “was to be a doctor.” Dr. Bergersen later attended the University of Minnesota where he received his Bachelor of Science Degree in Pre-Medicine. He received his Doctor’s Degree in 1969 and later performed his internship at the Charles T. Miller Hospital in downtown St. Paul during the entire year of 1970. During his internship, Dr. Bergersen joined the Army National Guard. He did not know it at the time, but this decision would eventually lead him to Arlington. Dr. Bergersen met a fellow named Dr. John Vener at a guard camp during June of 1970. Dr. Vener had been practicing medicine as the lone physician in Arlington since 1966. Dr. Vener eventually asked Dr. Bergersen and his wife of two years, Sandy, to “just come out and visit Arlington.” Dr. Bergesen accepted the invitation and visited Dr. Vener at his house in Arlington about two months later. “He is the ultimate host,” said Dr. Bergersen. “He pulled out all the stops.” Dr. Vener, during the supper hour, received an emergency call and asked Dr. Bergersen to assist him with a “hot appendix.” After the appendectomy, Dr. Vener handed a $50 bill to Dr. Bergersen and congraulated the younger doctor for a job well done. “As they say, the rest is history,” Dr. Bergersen laughed. Dr. Bergersen eventually received his License To Practice on Jan. 5, 1971, and start-

SMC has seen influx of influenza like illness
The Sibley Medical Center has seen an influx of an influenza like illness in the clinic, urgent care and hospital, according to Cindy Dikmen, RN CEN, Interim Director of Nursing at the Sibley Medical Center. Although influenza comes in different strains, the primary symptoms are: • Fever (100°F or greater) A fever occurs when your body temperature increases in response to illness or injury. Your temperature is considered elevated when it is 100°F or greater. • Muscle aches - Body aches that are sudden and unexplained can be a sign of the flu. • Chills - Body chills not related to a cold environment can be a sign of the flu. • Extreme fatigue - Fatigue is a feeling of tiredness, exhaustion, or lack of energy. When associated with one or more of the other symptoms, this can be a sign of the flu. Prevention is the most important line of defense for preventing influenza. Immunizations are still available at the SMC clinics by both injection and nasal spray. Sibley County Public Health also has them available. Diagnosis of influenza is based on symptoms and influenza testing which is taken by using a nasal swab. The results are back on the average of under 30 minutes. Treatment is given to patients who are diagnosed with influenza within 48 hours of onset of symptoms with an antiviral. Persons at higher risk for influenza complications who are also recommended for antiviral treatment include: • children age two years; • adults age 65 years; • persons with chronic pulmonary (including asthma), cardiovascular (except hypertension alone), renal, hepatic, hematological (including sickle cell disease), metabolic disorders (including diabetes mellitus), or neurologic and neurodevelopment conditions (including disorders of the brain, spinal cord, peripheral nerve, and muscle such as cerebral palsy, epilepsy (seizure disorders), stroke, intellectual disability (mental retardation), moderate to severe developmental delay, muscular dystrophy, or spinal cord injury); • persons with immunosuppression, including that caused by medications or by HIV infection; • women who are pregnant or postpartum (within two weeks after delivery); • persons age 19 years or under who are receiving long-term aspirin therapy; • American Indians/Alaska Natives; • persons who are morbidly obese (for example, bodymass index 40); and • residents of nursing homes and other chronic-care facilities. Most importantly keep hydrated with fluids, treat your fever and body aches with over the counter medications and rest. The Sibley Medical Center has same day appointments available along with urgent care open daily from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday and noon to 8 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. People who have any further questions should please feel free to call the Sibley Medical Center at 507-9642271.

Gruenhagen begins 2nd term
State Representative Glenn Gruenhagen, R-Glencoe, began his second term as he officially took the oath of office during a ceremony at the State Capitol in St. Paul on Tuesday, Jan. 8. It officially marked the beginning of the 2013 legislative session. Gruenhagen represents District 18B, which includes southern McLeod County and all of Sibley County. “It is an honor to return to the legislature for a second term,” Gruenhagen said. “I’m deeply grateful to the people of my district for entrusting me with the responsibility of representing District 18B, and I will strive to be a voice for rural Minnesota this upcoming session, and bring those issues and concerns to St. Paul.” Gruenhagen will serve on four committees this session; the Education Finance Committee, the Health and Human Services Finance Committee, the Health and Human Services Policy Committee, and the Higher Education Finance and Policy Committee. Gruenhagen’s office will be in the State Office Building, Room 241, across from the State Capitol in Saint Paul. “I hope constituents will feel welcome to stop by my office if they are in the area,” Gruenhagen said. “I also hope constituents will contact me with their questions, concerns, and feedback about legislation and issues being discussed at the Capitol.” Gruenhagen can be reached by phone at 651-296-4229, or by e-mail at Rep.Glenn.Gruenhagen@house.mn.

SE in lockdown after possible threat on Facebook
By Kurt Menk Editor The Sibley County Sheriff’s Department reported a possible threat against the Sibley East Public Schools on Facebook at 8:30 a.m. Monday, Jan. 7, according to Sibley East Senior High School Principal Jim Amsden. “The sheriff’s department notified us that it was investigating, but that the information about the possible threat was vague at best,” said Amsden. “Administratively, we followed the district policy related to an ‘Impending Crisis.’ All exterior doors in the building were locked immediately.” The same protocol was reportedly followed at the building in Gaylord. By 9:30 a.m., Amsden said investigators notified Sibley East that what had been initially reported was discussion about threats received by the New Ulm and Sleepy Eye public schools on Friday, Jan. 4. “We were in the process of notifying all staff through administrative walkabouts when we were notified there was indeed no impending crisis,” said Amsden. “In this type of situation, the business within the building continues on a normal basis with some additional precautions.” Amsden continued, “Based on what we know, the Sibley East schools were never mentioned and there was no threat directed to our school.” A 15-year-old Sleepy Eye student was charged with felony terroristic threats in Brown County District Court on Monday, Jan. 7. The student allegedly made threats toward area schools, according to the KNUJ Radio website. The shooting threats were allegedly posted on Facebook and were directed toward the public high schools in Sleepy Eye and New Ulm as well as the Riverbend Area Learning Center.

Barb’s Story: In August 2012, Barb was diagnosed with AML Leukemia. When she was diagnosed, the cancer had already taken over 70% of her blood cells. While Barb’s first chemo treatment was successful at putting her into remission, the cancer returned again in November. Barb will need to fight the cancer and be in remission before she can move onto a bone marrow transplant. Without a bone marrow transplant, her chances of survival are only 10%. Barb is a mother of two small children and an active volunteer in the Arlington Community. Please help us raise money for Barb and her family to cover medical and housing expenses required to fight this cancer. Supplemental funding provided by Sibley County Thrivent Financial for Lutherans.

Brief lockdown occurs at Sibley East Public Schools
Our View: Lack of communication leaves parents out in the cold
A brief lockdown reportedly occurred at the Sibley East Public Schools in Arlington and Gaylord on Monday morning, Jan. 7. Sibley East received a report about a possible threat and the administration followed the district policy for an impending crisis where all exterior doors in the building are locked. A short time later Sibley East was informed by authorities that there was no impending crisis. Even though the report was eventually ruled as false information and Sibley East was in no danger, the administration followed the correct policy to protect the safety of all students and employees in the two buildings. However, the pressing problem is parents were never notified of the incident. Some parents learned about the incident on private Facebook accounts while others learned from friends and were irate that they were kept out in the cold. Some parents still have no clue about the incident which happened at Sibley East. Parents have every right to know if their child has been part of a brief lockdown or general lockdown during the school day and the Sibley East Public Schools have the responsibility to notify parents of such an incident at least before the student goes home from school. Policies are wonderful, but good communication with parents and the general public is important too. In this day and age of technology, there are various methods of communication for Sibley East to alert parents about such an ordeal. According to an article in the December 2007 edition of the Arlington Enterprise, the Sibley East Public Schools activated a new emergency communication system called Instant Alert for this very reason and other purposes as well. If this system can be used to inform parents that their child’s lunch account is low, it surely can be used to alert parents about lockdowns to whatever risk or degree. There are other means of communications as well. The Eastern Carver County Schools, for example, experienced a lockdown on Tuesday morning, Jan. 8. The Chaska High School reported the incident on its Twitter account shortly after 8 a.m. A message was posted on the Chaska High School website by 8:30 a.m. That was 2 1/2 hours before the unspecified threat was partially lifted. The lack of communication only leads to unfounded rumors in the three communities and lack of public trust in the Sibley East Public Schools. Like it or not, School Boards, administrators, teachers, non-staff people and students live in a whole different world today. Unfortunately, they now have to deal with threats made through various types of technology that could not be imagined just a few years ago. The key is for all parties to work together and good communication should be the foundation. In conclusion, this issue would be an outstanding topic of discussion for the School Board during its meeting on Monday night, Jan. 14. The School Board could discuss the overall experience with the brief lockdown and if anything, like better communication, needs to be improved. -K.M.

Perspective on the gun debate after Sandy Hook
By John Marty State Senator The tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary in mid-December prompted national soul-searching about what can be done to stop these mass shootings. Some have called for security changes in schools; some have called for a reduction in the violence in movies and video games; some have called for strengthening our mental health system; and some have called for gun laws with teeth. Not surprisingly, the NRA has called for more guns in schools. Most of these ideas could have an impact: - I was an author of a Minnesota law requiring lock-down drills to improve security in schools. - Although it is not something government can do, I believe it is important that each of us as individuals, as parents, or as peers, challenge the idea that watching violence, or “virtually” practicing the killing of others, is "entertainment." - And, we would see huge reductions in violent crime if we ensured that all people, including those most troubled by mental illness or chemical dependency, receive the care they need when they need it. To make this happen, we need more than rhetoric: we need to pass the proposed Minnesota Health Plan or an alternative that truly delivers comprehensive care for everyone. But in addition to these reforms, it is also time to take a comprehensive look at our gun laws. Practically anyone can purchase an arsenal of weaponry powerful enough to gun down dozens of victims in minutes. Even people who have committed violent acts and even those with serious mental illness are able to purchase assault weapons and large capacity ammunition clips. The NRA’s allies argue that if Adam Lanza, the gunman in Newtown, knew that teachers and other adults were carrying guns in the school, he would have been scared away from entering the school and murdering children. But Mr. Lanza wasn't afraid of getting killed; he intended to die in his shooting rampage and committed suicide. The idea that numerous armed teachers in every school might reduce the carnage as they engage in gun battles with intruders is preposterous. More loaded guns in classrooms would result in accidental shootings, and perhaps even intentional ones, when an angry student uses a gun found in a teacher’s purse or desk drawer. The NRA’s call for the federal government to spend several billion dollars a year to pay for one or more armed police officers at every school in the country would be one of the most expensive, ill-conceived solutions possible. The gunmen at Columbine or Sandy Hook or other schools often orchestrate their attacks carefully and could easily plan to kill at times or places in the school where the officer is not around. Besides, most of these killers have far greater firepower than the school police officers would have. It is a hopeful sign that we are seeing the beginning of a national conversation about our gun laws. The gun lobby has so much political clout that few politicians have challenged them, and discussion of gun laws has been cut short. When Minnesota passed the concealed carry law several years ago, the pro-gun lobby defeated an amendment that would have denied gun permits to applicants who have a restraining order against them. In effect, the gun lobby persuaded legislators that even if an abuse victim obtains an order for protection, that's not enough reason to deny the abuser the right to carry a gun! Reinstating the federal assault weapons ban would be a step forward. But for a more comprehensive look at how we should regulate guns, let’s consider how we regulate cars. There are lawful uses for both guns and cars, but both are deadly when misused. With cars, we require the operator to be trained and licensed. We register the vehicle, and re-register it when transferring to a new owner. But for guns, there is no licensing, no training requirement, and no registration. This enables criminals to obtain guns from a private citizen with no background check, no waiting period - no means of enforcement at all. We don’t have a gun registration system because the gun lobby has used fear tactics to fight even modest regulation. They say, “First they'll register your guns, then the next thing they'll do is take ‘em away.” Sure. Just like they did with cars... Actually, the government does take away cars, but only from people using them illegally. In Minnesota, the courts can seize the cars of drug dealers and repeat DWI offenders. It is not a radical thought to question whether we should do the same for criminals with guns. What part of well-regulated militia don't they understand? Here are some reasonable changes that are long overdue: - Licensing gun owners and registering firearms. - Extending waiting periods and criminal background checks for private gun sales. - Putting a lifetime ban on gun ownership for people convicted of violent crimes. - Reinstating the federal ban on assault weapons and large ammunition clips. These modest proposals do not punish responsible gun owners any more than vehicle registration punishes responsible car owners. But these proposals will help stop the arms race on our streets where deranged killers and gang members are more heavily armed than the police. Despite public support for gun control, the gun lobby continues to fight common-sense reforms. It is well-organized and intimidating. Lawmakers raising this issue are accustomed to nasty phone calls. The NRA works to discredit these proposals, and those who offer them. I am a moderate on gun control, yet I have received "F-" ratings on the NRA report card, because I seek responsible gun laws. Perhaps because most of the victims were young children, there has been a perceptible shift in momentum on the issue since the Sandy Hook school shootings. Now is the time for public officials to stand up to the NRA, and have a rational discussion over public safety and responsible gun laws.

Barb (Goethke) Reierson Benefit is Jan. 19
A Bake Sale, Vendor Fair, Silent Auction and Dinner for Barb (Goethke) Reierson will be held at the Arlington Community Center from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 19 In August of 2012, Barb was diagnosed with AML Leukemia. The cancer had already taken over 70 percent of her blood cells when she was first diagnosed. Her first chemo treatment was successful and the cancer was in remission only to return in November of 2012. This type of cancer is most often seen in people age 65 and older. Barb will need to fight the cancer and it must be in remission before she can move on to a bone marrow transplant. Without a bone marrow transplant, her chances of survival are only 10 percent. Barb, daughter of Don and Diane Goethke, Arlington, is a 1997 graduate of the Sibley East Senior High School. She is married to Brent Reierson and the couple has two children. Benjamin, 11, is a fifth grader and Bethany is age three. Barb has been very active in the community. She has taught Sunday School and volunteered for the Sibley County Human Services.

80 Years Ago
January 12, 1933 Louis Kill, Editor Chicken thieves visited the farm of Alvin T. Skaro in Sibley Township for the second time within the past year on Tuesday evening, December 27th. They got away with 29 chickens. The birds were marked, however, with the tatoo of the American Poultry & Livestock Marking Association. Evidently the thief, upon noticing the markings became alarmed lest he be caught with the goods, so on Saturday, December 31, the chickens were returned to the Skaro farm. Some time earlier this year Mr. Skaro had 150 chickens taken, but these were not marked and were never recovered. Irwin Rosenfeldt, leader of the Old Time Merrymakers Orchestra of this place, met with a peculiar but rather painful misfortune one day recently while he was awaiting repairs on his car at the Seitzer garage in St. Peter. While waiting, Irwin decided to investigate the operation of a large ventilating fan and the suction drew his hand into the path of the blades, his hand being badly cut and lascerated. It required many stitches to close the wounds, but we are pleased to state that the injury is mending nicely.
60 Years Ago
January 8, 1953 Louis Kill, Editor Harold Oelfke of Hamburg recently underwent an experience in Korea that will probably be the “closest call” he will ever have. He and 13 other men were resting in a tent in Korea shortly before being sent home for leaves. Suddenly a bullet entered the tent and grazed Harold’s forehead. He and three others, who were also injured by the same bullet, were all hospitalized. A half-inch difference in his position when the bullet struck could have spelled death for Oelfke. Mrs. William St. John was happy when she called at The Enterprise office one day last week. The reason for her joy was the fact that she had received a letter from her sons, Cpl. Lyle A. St. John and A/2c Dale St. John, telling her they spent Christmas together in Germany. The boys entered the service together more than two years ago and this was their first reunion.
County Extension Office will feature marketing this year according to Richard Vossen, Arlington’s Vo-Ag instructor and John Peterson, Sibley County Agent. They explained the Institute is set for Thursday, January 18, at the Arlington Community Hall.

January 14, 1993 Kurt Menk, Editor Senior Corey Carpenter. a 145-pounder for the Sibley East Varsity Boys’ Wrestling squad, collected his 100th career win during his first match at the Farmington Boys’ Wrestling Tournament last Saturday. Carpenter, a five-year letterwinner, has a 14-1 record this year and a 102-31 mark overall. The local Site and Building Committee, during a special meeting last Thursday night, made a recommendation to place a combined 20-unit assisted living and ten-unit senior citizen housing project in a sevenacre area located southeast of Zion Lutheran Church and west of St. Paul’s Lutheran Cemetery in Arlington. The Site and Building Commitee made the recommendation to the Arlington City Council after it passed a motion 4-1 for the St. Paul’s site last week.
Bergersen Continued from page 1
ed the same week in Arlington. Times were different back then. Specialists were limited and a doctor had to be a jack of all trades. “You had to be,” explained Dr. Bergersen. “There was nobody else around.” The local clinic, at that time, was located along the 100 block of Seventh Avenue Northwest. An office call was $3.50. “John and I struggled when we had to raise it to five dollars,” said Dr. Bergersen. The Arlington Municipal Hospital, which the healthcare facility was called at the time, had a blood donor list. Residents were frequently called to donate blood at the local hospital. The doctors, who had pagers and made house calls in Green Isle, developed their x-rays by hand. There were no blood sugar monitors or same day procedures. The local clinic and hospital had no CT scans which were just being invented at the time. There was no laparoscopic surgery as all surgeries were open. Patients paid by the day and by the diagnosis. Nurses had more hands-on patient contact and ambulance personnel had limited training. “We also delivered babies,” said Dr. Bergersen, who delivered over 600 babies in his 40-plus year career. Change, however, was constant, according to Dr. Bergersen. The Arlington Clinic building was constructed near the Arlington Municipal Hospital in 1973. The two doctors also bought the clinic building in Winthrop in 1975 and the clinic building in Gaylord during the mid 1980’s. Their talents were sometimes spread thin as the two doctors had to cover the entire area. In 2002, Dr. Bergersen and Dr. Vener sold the Arlington Clinic and became employees of the Sibley Medical Center. The hospital, which would later become the Sibley Medical Center & Clinic, was renovated in 2003. The two doctors sold the clinic building in Gaylord during 2005. They still own the clinic building in Winthrop. “Over the years, we also had various doctors in practice with us,” explained Dr. Bergersen, who is a long-time member of the Arlington Lions Club. Technology and specialization have been two other big changes over the years, according to Dr. Bergersen. One thing that never changed was the partnership between Dr. Bergersen and Dr. Vener. “One reason why the partnership flourished is because John and I never competed socially,” said Dr. Bergersen. “We had different interests which did not interfere with our profession.” Dr. Vener has retired from the Sibley Medical Center, but still works as an independent contractor there one or two days a week. Dr. Bergersen, on the other hand, completely retired on Dec. 31, 2012. An open house to recognize and honor his 40plus years of service to the community and surrounding area will be held at the Arlington Community Center at 3 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 15. A program will be held at 6 p.m. The event, he added, is open to the public. Dr. Bergersen said he will miss the patients and staff the most. “I’ve made a lot of friends here over the years,” said Dr. Bergersen, who together with his wife, Sandy, has two children and three grandchildren. “We have really enjoyed the small town atmosphere here and plan to continue living in Arlington.” Dr. Bergersen added, “My wife and I initially thought we would come to Arlington and I would try it for a year,” said Dr. Bergersen. “Had we not liked it, we would have left years ago.”

Girls topple LS-H 55-27
By Kurt Menk Editor The Sibley East varsity girls basketball team hammered visiting Le Sueur-Henderson 55-27 in Minnesota River Conference action on Friday night, Jan. 4. The Lady Wolverines raced to a 33-10 halftime lead and cruised to the 28-point win. “It was a much needed, big win for us,” said Sibley East head coach Doug Flieth. “It was nice to come out and play well on parents night. All of the girls contributed to the win for us. We had 11 girls score for us on the night, and five of them had at least six points. Junior Maren Miner topped Sibley East with 15 points. Sophomore McKenzie Sommers and freshman Alyssa Weber hooped seven points each while senior Courtney Schwirtz and junior Jessica Garza netted six points apiece. Junior Kimberly Kurtzweg and sophomore Kelli Martens scored three points each while seniors Jordan Thomes and Briana Reierson, junior Megan Eckberg and sophomore Autumn Dose tallied two points apiece. Sibley East hit 23 of 62 shots from the field for 37 percent, but just seven of 20 free throw attempts for 35 percent. The Lady Wolverines also collected 37 rebounds in the win. Miner and Garza pulled down seven boards apiece while Eckberg and Weber snared six caroms each. Dose and Sommers added four and three rebounds respectively. Garza also contributed seven thefts and three assists while Dose recorded two dishes and two thefts. Thomes added three assists. “Maren Miner had a great game off the bench for us,” said Flieth. “She did a great job on the offensive end, getting lots of rebounds and putting them back in for points for us.” Flieth added, “Our defensive intensity got us off and running early and really gave LSH some problems. Jessica Garza and Alyssa Weber do a great job of creating turnovers for us in the press.” The Lady Wolverines, 1-5 in the MRC and 3-7 overall, will travel to WatertownMayer in conference action at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 10.

tain committees that had just been organized for the year. Jaunich said it will be a work in progress as he starts to meet with employees and residents to learn where he needs to be. “In all honesty, if there is anything you want me to do between now and when I start, let me know,” said Jaunich. He still has responsibilities with the City of Arlington, but he has a little flexibility. The job summary said the administrator, “Performs overall countywide leadership and managerial work as the top administrative officer of the county. Responsible for the implementation of county board ordinances, regulations, resolutions and policies and for the administration and direction of all departments and functions of government under the jurisdiction of the county board.” There are many general duties and responsibilities listed in the employment agreement, but the first one may best reflect what the board members were after. “Keeps the county board members informed and updated on the status of county business, communicates with commissioners regularly and appropriately to educate, inform and update them on county projects, activities and issues.” The board and Jaunich took a tour of the offices at the end of the meeting to get a closer look. Window shades have been ordered, which is a start. allow for the expiration of the Minnesota Board of Water and Soil Resources Technical Assistance Grant. Remaining funds amounting to just over $53,000 will be returned to the state, according to new Watershed Projects Coordinator Brady Swanson. The grant was originally signed in 2010 and was good for one year. What ended up happening was it took nearly a year to use the funds from the previous grant that had been extended. Grant funds paid for administrative salaries when working on special projects. “The project continues through August of 2014 and there are funds to keep up with everything,” said Swanson. “The funds being returned were part of an extra rider.” • Sibley County Treasurer Mary Fisher said tax collection through Dec. 31, 2012, was the highest it has been in several years at 98.98 percent including all townships and cities. • The board approved an agreement between Sibley County and Northland Business Systems for a maintenance agreement for the Audiolog Digital Voice Logging System for the period Nov. 27, 2012 through Nov. 26, 2013, at a cost of $2,500. • County Commissioner Joy Cohrs said the wellness committee is working to get county employees involved to live healthier. The “biggest loser challenge” is starting. The Sibley County Board of Commissioners will hold their next regular meeting at 9 a.m. Tuesday, Jan. 22

Spring turkey hunting applications to be accepted through this Friday
Hunters older than 17 who want to hunt during the first four seasons of Minnesota’s 2013 spring wild turkey hunt have until Friday, Jan. 11, to apply for a permit, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR). Youth hunters 17 and younger can purchase a permit for any season over-thecounter. The hunt will consist of six five-day and two seven-day seasons. All adult resident and nonresident wild turkey hunters interested in hunting during one of the first four seasons must apply online, in-person or by phone. Permits for each of the last four seasons will be sold over-thecounter only and no applications will be taken. A total of 5,781 permits are available for the spring turkey hunt. Dates for 2013 are: Season A – Wednesday, April 17, to Sunday, April 21. Season B – Monday, April 22, to Friday, April 26. Season C – Saturday, April 27, to Wednesday, May 1. Season D – Thursday, May 2, to Monday, May 6. Season E – Tuesday, May 7, to Saturday, May 11. Season F – Sunday, May 12, to Thursday, May 16. Season G – Friday, May 17, to Thursday, May 23. Season H – Friday, May 24, to Thursday, May 30. Permit areas were consolidated from 77 to 12 last year, providing wild turkey hunters more flexibility and opportunity in larger geographic areas. One slight change alters the boundary between permit areas 501 and 503. Check the map at www.mndnr.gov/hunting/turkey for details. All hunters must pay a nonrefundable $4 application fee at the time of application. Nonresident hunters may apply online or telephone at 888-665-4236 (MNLICENSE). A nonrefundable $3.50 transaction fee will be charged for online and telephone applications. Hunters who are not successful in the drawing may purchase surplus turkey permits, which are sold on a first-come, first-served basis, in mid-March. They also may choose to purchase a license over-the-counter for any of the last four time periods. Hunters who are successful in the drawing for one of the first four hunts and choose not to purchase a tag will lose the current year’s preference point for future drawings but not accumulated preference from past years. The availability of archery resident and nonresident spring turkey licenses includes the last four seasons. Archery licenses may be purchased for the last four hunts only in any permit area with 50 or more applicants. Licensed archers may hunt each and all of the entire last four time periods. An application information sheet is available from any DNR license agent and online at www.mndnr.gov/hunting/turkey. Hunt information materials include a map of wild turkey permit areas, permit quotas and season dates. Information also is available by calling the DNR Information Center at 651-2966157 or toll-free -888-6466367.

Local dairy producers win AMPI Milk Quality Award
Producing quality milk has earned local dairy producers a coveted award. They are recipients of the prestigious Associated Milk Producers, Inc. (AMPI) Milk Quality Award presented by AMPI to honor farmers who consistently produce quality milk. “The dairy farmer-owners of AMPI know excellent milk makes exceptional dairy products,” said Bill Swan, manager of AMPI’s New Ulm Division. “AMPI and its members strive daily to provide wholesome, nutritious dairy producers to meet consumer demand.” AMPI members produce premium milk that is processed and manufactured into dairy products such as award-winning cheeses, butter and powdered dairy products. The cooperative annually recognizes dairy farmers who consistently market milk meeting stringent quality standards. Each honoree is a member-owner of AMPI, an Upper Midwest milk marketing cooperative. Local dairy producers earning the 2012 AMPI Milk Quality Award are: • Mark Klehr, Belle Plaine • Sunshine Dairy Partnership, Arlington • Dennis and Eugene Krzmarzick, Sleepy Eye • John and Greg Rosenhammer, Sleepy Eye • John and Jason Schroeder, Courtland • Loren Wilfahrt, New Ulm • SKH, Inc, New Ulm • John and Robert Huelskamp, New Ulm • Mike and Robin Thiessen, Butterfield • Jay Moldan, Comfrey • James, Elaine and Larry Mickelson, Springfield
FSA Matters
Lori Weckwerth Sibley FSA Farming Operating Changes Producers who have bought or sold land, or added or dropped rented land from their operation must report those changes to the FSA office as soon as possible. A copy of the deed or recorded land contract for purchase property is needed to maintain accurate records with FSA. Failure to do so can lead to possible program ineligibility and penalties. While making record updates, be sure to update signature authorizations. Making record changes now will save time in the spring. Highly Erodible Land & Wetland Compliance Landowners and operators are reminded that in order to receive payments from USDA, compliance with Highly Erodible Land (HEL) and Wetland Conservation (WC) provisions is required. Farmers with HEL determined soils must apply tillage, crop residue, and rotation requirements as specified in their conservation plan. Producers should notify FSA prior to conducting land clearing or drainage projects to insure compliance. If you intend to clear any trees to create new cropland, these areas will need to be reviewed to ensure any work will not jeopardize your eligibility for benefits. Landowners and operators can complete form AD-1026 Highly Erodible Land Conservation (HELC) and Wetland Conservation (WC) Certification to determine whether a referral to Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) is necessary. For more information on Highly Erodible Land and Wetland Conservation provisions, contact your local FSA County Office or visit the FSA website at www.fsa.usda.gov/. FSA GovDelivery The USDA Farm Service Agency offices have moved to a paperless new distribution system. Producers are asked to enroll in the new GovDelivery system, which provides notices, newsletters and electronic reminders instead of a hard copy through the mail. FSA, like many other organizations, is trying to work smarter and be more efficient. Moving to electronic notifications via email helps conserve resources and save taxpayer dollars. Producers can now subscribe to receive free e-mail updates by going to www.fsa.usda.gov/subscribe.
