The Arlington City Coun-
cil, during a recent regular
meeting, unanimously adopt-
ed a resolution to approve the
employee wage/benefit pack-
age for 2013.
The move reflects a two
percent wage increase for
most full-time employees in
2013.
The hourly wage for the at-
will full-time employees is as
follows: Jeff Paine( $16.89 or
a 1.99 percent increase), Dan
Thomes ($19.99 or a 1.99
percent increase), Vicki Pom-
plun ($16.68 or 2.02 percent
increase), Lisa Tesch ($20 or
1.99 percent increase), Bruce
Rovinsky ($22.50 or 1.99
percent increase) and Scott
Bennett ($20.69 or zero per-
cent increase).
The hourly wage for part-
time city employee Jennifer
Strack will increase to $12.24
or a two percent increase.
In general, the benefits for
full-time employees will stay
the same except for an in-
crease in premium costs for
health insurance.
In other news, the contract
for City Administrator Matt
Jaunich called for a pay raise
from $70, 125 in 2012 to
$71,125 in 2013.
The City Council, however,
did verbally agree to give an
additional raise to Jaunich
from $70,125 to $75,125 if he
would stay with the City of
Arlington. Jaunich was of-
fered the Sibley County ad-
ministrator position last
week. If that does happen,
the City Council would have
to approve an amendment to
his contract. The item has
been placed on the agenda for
the next regular meeting at

In other action, hourly
wage for other city employ-

crease) and summer recre-
ation assistants ($8.75 or zero

Barb Reierson (Goethke)
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 success-
ful at putting her into remission, the cancer returned again in November. Barb will need to fight the can-
cer 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.

The many friends of S. A.
Japsen, our tailor, will regret to
hear that he is seriously ill at his
home in Watertown. He was
taken down with a serious attack
of kidney trouble while visiting
his folks during the holidays.
His ailment is such that it will
be some time before he is able
to return to Arlington and re-
sume the conduct of his busi-
ness.

Letter To The Editor
Unless plans change in the next two months, the signal light at
the intersection of Highway 5 and West Main Street in Arlington
will be removed as part of the proposed Highway 5 Project next
summer.
The project will be conducted in two phases. Phase one will con-
sist of a mill and overlay from Gaylord through town to just east of
Sheila Drive in Arlington. Phase two will consist of a reclaim from
east of Sheila Drive in Arlington to Green Isle. There will be no
curb and gutter replacement with the project and no structures will
be moved unless the structures are failing. In addition, the Min-
nesota Department of Transportation (Mn/DOT) will construct the
pedestrian ramps for the sidewalks to American Disabilities Act
(ADA) specifications.
Mn/DOT, however, has cited recent traffic studies and the non-
ADA compliance of the signal light as the reasons for its removal.
The City of Arlington, if it so chooses, could keep the signal light,
but it would be the responsibility of the city to cover all costs.
These costs, excluding future maintenance, would be around
$200,000.
Although local and area residents should be grateful that the
highway will be renovated, the removal of the signal light is anoth-
er issue.
It is surprising that the signal light was apparently needed for
decades in the past, but is not needed in the future at the same time
it has been deemed as non-ADA compliant. Minnesota requires
cities, counties and schools to spend money and meet certain man-
dates, but the state sometimes comes up with reasons and excuses
when it is required to meet compliance issues.
There are more vehicles on the roads today than decades ago and
the children still have to cross Highway 5 to get to school. Some
students at St. Paul’s Lutheran School cross the highway as pedes-
trians to attend band classes and other events at the Sibley East
Public School. In addition, there are more senior citizens who
cross the highway as pedestrians and motorists due to the construc-
tion of Amberfield Apartments during the past decade. Will the
speed of traffic increase through Arlington along Highway 5 after
the signal light is removed?
Traffic studies are helpful, but there are other circumstances that
should have been taken into account before this proposal was
made. A public meeting to receive input from elected officials and
local citizens who live and drive in town was apparently never
held, but would have been beneficial.
It is amazing that one state agency has given the City of Arling-
ton a grant for its Safe Routes To School project and another state
agency has proposed the removal of the only signal light in town.
It does not make any sense.
In regard to the proposed elimination of the stop light, it sure
looks like the decision came down to the almighty dollar.

Two accountants go to their credit
union on their lunch break, when
armed robbers burst in. While sever-
al of the robbers take the money
from the tellers, others line the cus-
tomers, including the accountants,
up against a wall, and proceed to
take their wallets, watches, and other
valuables.
While this is going on accountant
number one jams something in ac-
countant number two's hand.
Without looking down, account-
ant number two whispers, “What
is this?” To which accountant
number one replies, “It's that $50
I owe you.”

An accountant is having a hard

“Doctor, I just can't get to sleep at

The doctor replied, “Have you

The accountant stated, “That's
the problem - I make a mistake
and then spend three hours trying
to find it.”

An angry wife was complaining
about her husband spending all his

took her along with him. "
“What'll you have?” he asked.
“Oh, I don't know. The same as
you I suppose,” she replied.
So, the husband ordered a couple
of Jack Daniels and threw his down
in one shot.
His wife watched him, then took a
sip from her glass and immediately
spat it out. “Yuck, that's terrible!”
she spluttered. “I don't know how
you can drink this stuff!”
“Well, there you go,” cried the
husband. “And you think I'm out
enjoying myself every night!”

To The Editor,
I am Bert Panning, son of Wilbert
and Myrtle Panning. As I watch the
store in Green Isle being torn down
it brings back so many, many memo-
ries. I don't know when the building
was put up, but I have heard any-
where from 1875 to 1922. My guess
is in the late 1800’s. I was born in
1944 and lived the first 16 years of
my life on a farm one mile west of
Green Isle. I can remember when I
was about five or six years old and
continuing for several years, that
about once a week, Mom and Dad,
my brother, sister and I would put a
couple of cases of eggs into the
trunk of our car and take them to
Nevin’s store. I don't remember how
much we got per case, but it was
enough to buy most of the items we
needed that we couldn' t grow or
raise on the farm. I am referring to
things such as flour, salt, sugar, cere-
al, etc., and Dad’s cigarettes and
later pipe tobacco, of course, a large
can of Prince Albert that Spike had
on an upper shelf behind the counter.
I can still picture Spike and Babe al-
ways having a smile and a greeting
when we walked in the store. I also
remember that in the warehouse
where Spike had a large cooler and
storage space, he also candled the
eggs he purchased in that part of the
building. Back then several of the
business owners would give a pretty
nice gift to their customers at Christ-
mas time. I do recall our family get-
ting a very nice salad bowl one year.
The reason I remember it is because
when we got home I carried it from
the car to the house and dropped it.
It shattered into many pieces. But
the next or maybe the same day Dad
went back to the store and explained
to Spike what happened and Spike
gave him another. How things have
changed.
In the late 1960’s I had a job driv-
ing a bread truck. My first stop was
at Nevin’s store in Green Isle. I al-
ways got there about 6 a.m. and at
that time Spike usually had been at
the store for an hour or more. When
I first began delivering to Spike's
store he would always check the
items prior to me putting them on
the shelf to be sure that the quanti-
ties were correct. But, after a few
weeks, he said, “Bert, just put them
on the shelf, you look like an honest
man.” Also, back in those days it
was common for stores in the area to
stay open one evening a week and
usually it was on Friday nights til 9
o’clock or so. Green Isle was a busy
little town back then. Many people
would come to town on Friday night,
pick up their groceries, maybe get a
haircut, put gas in their vehicle, and
might just splurge a bit and go into
one of the bars and have a beer or
two.
My mother worked for Spike for
many years beginning in 1958 I
think. In 1975, when Spike and Babe
retired Mom and Dad purchased the
business and operated it until 1988.
Between 1975 and 1988 my brother,
sister and I often would work in the
store when Mom and Dad had a
wedding, funeral, or whatever it may
be. It was enjoyable, but also hard
work standing for 10 hours or more.
Spike, Mom and Dad did that every
day Monday through Saturday and
on Sunday, when the store was
closed, they would come in and
scrub the floors and do their order-
ing. In those days you could buy
just about anything in that store re-
lated to food or clothing - shoes,
boots, shirts, pants and I know Lee
bib type overalls were a big seller.
Also, bulk Christmas candy was a
hot item as were the many types of
cheeses and meats that they sliced.
Another big seller was the skin-on
Ambassador weiners that customers
often bought in large, bulk bags
holding 50 or more. In the spring
they would have flowers and plants
lined up on the side walk for sale to
be used for gardens. And back then
and beginning when Spike and Babe
had the store, many of the customers
had a charge account. We didn’t
have a fancy, dancy, cash register so
if a customer came in who had a
charge account we always had to
pull his account book out and hand
write each and every item in that
book. Many of the charge account
customers were farmers who would
come in to pay their bill when they
received their milk check each
month. Again, starting with Spike
and continuing with Mom and Dad,
when they would pay their bill Mom
and Dad always would slip items
into their bags as a gesture of appre-
ciation. I know giving a free gallon
of ice cream, a container of cookies
or several candy bars was very com-
mon. Imagine finding a store now
days who would give you free items
when you paid your bill if, in fact,
you could get a charge account
opened. Spike and Babe and Mom
and Dad’s logic was...treat them
good and they will come back. As I
said earlier.. . . how things have
changed.
So when I think back I have been
going in and out of that building for
the better part of 45 years. First of
all as a customer, second as a ven-
dor, and lastly as an occasional
worker in the store. So when I found
out that it was going to be demol-
ished it was kind of sad. And now
when I see the actual tearing down
of the building it becomes even sad-
der. Somehow, to me at least, it
seems that Green Isle won't quite be
the same.

Speed Stacking Tournament
Jens Lundstrom participated in the sec-
ond annual Sixth Grade Speed Stacking
Tournament at the Sibley East Elemen-
tary School in Gaylord on Friday morn-
ing, Dec. 21.
As Minnesotans know,
weather can vary throughout
the state; the same is true for
ice conditions. In the north,
Department of Natural Re-
sources (DNR) conservation
officers report more than 800
ice houses on Lake of the
Woods, while boat anglers
are fishing on parts of the
Mississippi River near La
Crescent in the southern part
of the state.
Given the uneven condi-
tions, the DNR urges people
to think twice before going
out on the ice.
“Ice is never 100 percent
safe,” said Capt. Greg Salo,
DNR regional enforcement
supervisor in St. Paul. “Don’t
put yourself in needless dan-
ger by going out on thin ice.
No fish is worth your life.”
Many lakes and rivers
across the state have between
five and six inches of ice. Ice
conditions can change at any
moment. The DNR reminds
anglers and snowmobilers to
be cautious.
Last winter, four people
died after falling through thin
ice.
Salo recommends anyone
heading out on the ice should
carry a set of ice picks, check
with a local bait shop or re-
sort – ask about ice condi-
tions – and measure the ice.
DNR clear ice thickness
recommendations are:
• Four inches for walking.
• Five inches for a snow-
mobile or ATV.
• Eight to 12 inches for a
car.
• 12-15 inches for a medi-
um-sized truck.
