Familiar face takes reins at Lakeside Elementary
Diane Schultz named new assistant principal
By Alyssa Schauer Staff Writer here is a familiar face in a new administration position at Lakeside Elementary in Silver Lake. Diane Schultz, former teacher, RtI (Response to Intervention) instructor and data coach in the GlencoeSilver Lake school district, is now the assistant principal, replacing Michelle Wang, who resigned in August. The GSL School Board approved the decision at its meeting Monday, but Schultz officially started on Sept. 16. Schultz has been working in the district for 23 years and, in fact, her first teaching job out of college was in the fourth-grade classroom in Glencoe. She taught third- and fourth-grade classes and two years ago, she moved into the RtI specialist and data coach positions. “I took and analyzed all of the student data to make sure our kids were progressing, both academically and behaviorally,” she said. Schultz said she also was the internal Minnesota Reading Corps reading coach at Lakeside and worked a lot with intervention techniques. Schultz is a high school graduate of Lester Prairie High School, and she completed her undergraduate degree in elementary education at St. Cloud State University. “I earned my master’s degree in curriculum and instruction through St. Mary’s University in Minneapolis and, in 2000, I earned my K12 administrative license,” Schultz said. “The assistant principal position had opened up a few times since I had my license,
Diane Schultz but it was never the right time for me. “My son, Nathaniel, was young, and involved in a lot of activities, but he’s 16 now, and when Michelle (Wang) resigned, I thought ‘now’s the time.’ I told myself that if it is meant to be, it will happen,” Schultz said. She said Ken Hults, secretary at Lakeside, encouraged her to apply for the job. “Ken and I have been working together for years. We worked at Helen Baker together, and we worked closely together when I was in the RtI position. We work as a good team,” Schultz said. Schultz said knowing the district and her time as the RtI instructor and data coach have made her transition into assistant principal “smooth.” “Because I worked as an RtI specialist and data coach, I know the improvement goals for the students and for
the district. I think that’s especially important as assistant principal, to have that experience. And of course, I know the students and their families, and those connections are key,” Schultz said. Schultz said she also knows the reading background of a lot of the students, and she knows the standards the district needs to reach regarding reading and math. “And I know the staff and where they are all at in teaching strategies. I’m very lucky to have such a great staff, and I couldn’t be here without them,” she said. She added: “I know where we need to go as a school, and I’ve already seen progress. We are seeing progress in closing that achievement gap,” Schultz said. One of the district goals is to close the achievement gap in the English lanaguage learner (ELL) and special education populations of students, Schultz said. “We are really working on reading and math, and especially integrating the two, as far as incorporating academic language,” she said. Schultz said teachers are also working to make sure the “top kids” are succeeding. “We’ve moved into a reader’s workshop model of learning, where the teachers present a mini-lesson and divide the class into small groups to discuss the content. Our teachers are meeting kids at the levels they are at by doing so,” Schultz said. She added that teachers are incorporating spelling words

GSL Board approves new contracts for its principals
By Rich Glennie Editor The Glencoe-Silver Lake School Board on Monday night hired a new assistant elementary principal and came to terms on new two-year contracts with all the principals as well as the community education director. The newest administrative staff member is Diane Schultz, who will be assistant principal at Lakeside Elementary in Silver Lake. Schultz replaces Michelle Wang, who resigned right before the start of the new school year. Schultz‘s two-year contract calls for a salary of $73,167 in 2013-14 and $74,631 in 201415. The other two-year contracts are for GSL High School Principal Paul Sparby, Assistant Secondary Principal Dan Svoboda, Elementary Principal Bill Butler and Community Education Director Tina Schauer. All received a 5.07 percent increase in salary and benefits over the two-year contracts. Sparby will make $105,185 in 2013-14 and $107,288 in 2014-15; Butler $96,598 in 2013-14 and $98,530 in 201415; and Svoboda $72,737 the first year and $74,192 in 201415. Schauer’s annual salary will be $66,542 beginning July 1, 2013 to June 30, 2014, and $68,232 the second year. In other matters, the School Board: • Set its next regular meeting for 7 p.m., Monday, Nov. 12, at Lakeside Elementary in Silver Lake. Also noted the annual Truth in Taxation hearing will be held at 6:01 p.m., Monday, Dec. 9, in the high school media center. At 7 p.m., the regular School Board meeting will be held. • Agreed to make the Supermileage program an afterschool activity this school year. Last year, it was part of the curriculum. But Superintendent Chris Sonju said there was not room in the school schedule to make it a classroom program this year. Sonju said the goal is to maintain the momentum built on the first year of the Supermileage program. As an afterschool activity, students will need to pay the usual activity fees to participate, Sonju said. • Hired another English Language Learner (ELL) teacher at Helen Baker. Sonju noted only four students left the district after the corn pack was finished at Seneca Foods. He said 58 students were initially identified for the ELL program. But there was only one ELL teacher at Helen Baker. With only four leaving that left the teacher with 54 students, “and that was too high,” Sonju said. “Now the issue is where to put them (at Helen Baker),” Sonju said of an additional teacher and class. Butler said staff is looking at using the Helen Baker music room in the morning, cafeteria in the afternoon and possibly sharing space with another class as well. • Hired Kasey Athmann as a 6.5-hour-per-day LPN at the high school/Lincoln Jr. High, replacing Brenda Wurm, who resigned; Joy Freitag as K-6 RtI specialist and data coach, replacing Schultz, who is the new elementary assistant principal; Amy Trippel, Valarie Dahlke and Lynette Kruschke as 6.5-hour-per-day special ed paraprofessionals at Lakeside. • Accepted the resignations of Kaylia Johnson as the front desk worker at the Panther Field House; Deb Schiroo as a 24-hour-per-week ECFE secretary at Lincoln; and Becky Bartholomay-Suko as spelling bee coordinator. • Granted a six-week family leave request for Karol Kiefer, ESL paraprofessional at high school/junior high, beginning Oct. 23. • Approved Liz Tromborg and Lisa Eischens as instructors for various community education classes through December. • Assigned the following for extracurricular activities: Becky Bartholomay-Suko as junior high yearbook adviser; Taylor Melius, spelling bee coordinator; Randi Erlandson and Jamie Fredericksen, coNational Honor Society advisers; Jeff Monahan, assistant girls’ basketball coach; Candace Stiles, eighth-grade volleyball coach; Shawn Fettig, assistant wrestling coach; Joe Morcomb and Tom Schoper, co-head coaches for Mock Trial; and Jodi Richer, ninthgrade fall cheerleading coach.

Audit: GSL School District had a good year
By Rich Glennie Editor “Overall, it was a good year for the district,” said Kim Hillberg, an auditor from CliftonLarsonAllen, LLP, the auditing firm for the Glencoe-Silver Lake School District. Speaking at Monday’s School Board meeting, Hillberg said the district’s general fund “looks good” and finished June 30, 2013, with a general fund balance of $5.7 million, with unrestricted reserves at $4.6 million or about 28 percent of the budget. The total general fund budget was $16.2 million in the fiscal year that ended June 30. “The general fund is very healthy,” Hillberg said. The food service fund and community education funds also were healthy, she added, and the district’s debt service will see its last payment on the old McLeod West debt in 2014. She pointed out that the vast majority of the district’s funding comes from the state (80 percent), while local property taxes generate about 12 percent of the district’s revenues. The federal government pays about 4 percent of the district’s revenues. Hillberg said “seat counts” of students in the classrooms have declined, and costs continue to rise for special education needs. Transportation costs also have increased, and special education needs are the driving force for that as well, she said. Michelle Sander, GSL business manager, said the proposed levy for the 2014-15 budget will decrease by $376,699, with the removal of the McLeod West debt next school year. That will result in a 16 percent decrease in the property taxes for those residents from the former McLeod West district and a 6.6 percent drop for the rest of the district’s property owners. She said an increase in state aid will help keep district revenues the same, even with the decreases in the local levy. Sander also noted that the federal shutdown has not financially affected any district programs, yet. Asked about the state’s payback of school district funds that were shifted over the past few years, Sander said the state owed GSL $4.7 million last year, and that should be reduced to about $1.9 million by the end of the current fiscal year. She said the changes last legislative session allowed the state to get closer to its former 90 percent/10 percent formula. Ninety percent of the state aid is paid in the current fiscal year, with 10 percent withheld until the following fiscal year in order to clean up late bills from the past fiscal year. The legislative changes “really help cash flow things,” Sander said. When asked how the district gets paid, Sander said the state pays the school district twice a month throughout the year, while the local property taxes are collected and paid to the district twice a year, usually in May and October or November.

into their lessons and everyday usage. “It’s the ‘Words Their Way’ program, where there is a word workshop for vocabulary, versus just taking a weekly spelling test and forgetting about the lesson. Classrooms are really studying words and their patterns, and using them in other subjects,” Schultz said. She added: “Having all that background in RtI instruction and knowing where students stand in learning has really helped. I am making connections with families and students and I’ve been able to see growth. “I make decisions as assis-
tant principal; they are based on the students’ needs. The best practices in teaching are those that are best for the kids. I have an ‘open-door’ policy. I want the students, their parents, and the staff to be able to talk to me and trust me,” Schultz said. She added: “I love my job. I love coming to work. It’s been a good, busy three weeks. It’s been fun, and it’s almost surreal that I’m here in this position as assistant principal. “I feel very fortunate to have had this opportunity and I’m in this for the kids and to make progress for our district,” Schultz said.

A memorable bridesmaid mistake
Well, I did it! I survived my eighth and final wedding of the year and the fifth occasion as a bridesmaid. One of my friends told me to stop being nice to people and maybe I wouldn’t be in so many weddings, but we all know I could never do that, and I love being there for my friends. Although, after making an embarassing mistake during the ceremony on Saturday, I don’t know how many more weddings I’ll be asked to participate. It wasn’t that major of a mishap, like tripping over my feet, stumbling into the altar or dragging toilet paper on the bottom of my shoe down the aisle, but it was something funny enough to set me off with a case of the “church giggles.” You know, those laughing fits you can hardly stifle in a quiet church. The kind of giggles that can shake an entire pew. Well, as the bridal party was invited to stand before the bride and groom, (Heather Kaczmarek and Brian Stockman), I headed up to the altar and took my place at the end of the row. This was my fourth wedding in Holy Family Catholic Church in Silver Lake, so I had the ceremony well-rehearsed, but when Father Tony asked the congregation to be seated, I took that as a cue to head back to the pew and confidently nodded to my groomsman counterpart across the aisle to do the same. Poor Mark. Carefully and slowly in my heels, I turned towards the congregation and walked around into the third pew, and when I was just about to take my seat, the bride’s grandmother, Delores Goede, turned from the second pew and tapped me on the wrist. I thought she was going to congratulate me on standing so still for the nuptials, but instead she whispered, “You weren’t supposed to leave the altar yet.” I looked up to see two of the five bridesmaids, a few groomsmen, Heather and

Brian, and Fathers Tony and Patrick looking at the wandering bridal party. “You can join us again,” Father Tony said, and I turned to Kayla and Katie, the bridesmaids directly following me and Kayla smiled and said, “Oops!” In giggles, we headed back to the altar to witness the vows and “I Dos” and my counterpart groomsman looked across the aisle to shake his head at me in disapproval. I had to bite my lip and think of terrible things to stop myself from laughing out loud while standing, and thankfully, Father dismissed us quickly so I could return to the pew and laugh quietly with Kayla. Fortunately, it was a forgettable mistake for most — nothing that a little wine and dancing couldn’t erase, but unfortunately, the wedding was videotaped, so the moment will forever be recorded. But at least at Heather’s wedding I didn’t bump into a pillar and break a glass vase during dinner like I did at her sister Chris’ wedding last October. All proud bridesmaid moments. In Jeep news, things are going great, except that I may have a fuse or some flashers out as my signals do not work and neither do my bright lights. My friend Sarah suggested using bike signals, so if you see my arm hanging out the window signaling left and right, you know why. And curiously enough, the Jeep is now outfitted with two “Sven and Ole” yellow bumper stickers. Have any of you visited Grand Marais lately? I noticed this extra bumper sticker on Saturday morning, and on the sticker, the culprit wrote, “’Cause no one can stop just once!” I had to laugh because they are right! The mystery Jeep decorator made my day, but now I realized I should really get a car wash in case anybody else has extra Sven and Ole bumper stickers. Or if anyone has any extra mufflers laying around and would like to attach one to the Jeep, I’m not opposed.

A look at 1933 Silver Lake
Editor’s Note: Ron Pulkrabek was born “between Glencoe and Silver Lake” and has had a love of history, in particular family and Silver Lake history. Beginning a column series this week in the Silver Lake Leader, Pulkrabek said he hopes to spark an interest in others to research their family histories as well. Both he and his wife are of Czech heritage, and his research comes from a variety of sources as well as his numerous trips overseas to the “old country.” He wrote his first part looking through the eyes of someone coming to Silver Lake in the 1930s and what it would have looked like then. Having been gone from Silver Lake for a number of years, I came back to visit businesses and the people of Silver Lake at the end of 1933. Everyone looks so busy. What a thriving town! I only have one week and may have a few names mixed up, so please forgive any mistakes. State Highway 7 runs right down Main Street, starting at the western edge of town and ending up at the double “S” curves on the east side. Six years ago, after a heavy snowstorm, only a single lane was open through Main Street with snow banks six feet high pushed onto the board sidewalks. Generally speaking, the Czechs live on the south side of Silver Lake and the Polish live on the north side. In the past there have been clashes if someone stepped over the line, but that is pretty much healed now. There are even instances where a Czech girl will marry a Polish guy, and vice versa. Jobs seem plentiful; new businesses are established; people are well-dressed. There are men with suits and hats and women with dresses and fancy hats, and people are enjoying themselves after the Great Depression. On the west side of Silver Lake at the wooden creamery, Tony Urban, the buttermaker, is busy while his wife is dumping cans. In 1914, they took in almost 3.4 million pounds of milk, paying out $27,000 to the 176 patrons. In 100-degree heat this summer, the Creamery Company sponsored a picnic and dance. Over 500 people attended. I walked past the St. Joseph Bohemian Catholic Church. The billboard states Father Skluzacek will hear confessions Saturday night at 8 p.m. and Sunday Masses are at 8 a.m. and 10 a.m. The St. Joseph Church can be traced back to a group of Bohemian settlers from the Assumption Church at Bear Creek, four miles south of Silver Lake. Everyone must remember not to eat breakfast or drink even a sip of water after midnight, before going to communion on Sunday morning. The seven nuns have the 117 students prepared to present the Christmas play, a threeact comedy called “Birds Christmas Carol.” Pupils of both parochial schools have been selling Christmas seals. Next Sunday, the boys in white shirts and ties and the girls in white dresses will march slowly around the inside of the church in the semidarkness carrying lighted candles. This is the Advent season. They are preparing for the birthday of baby Jesus. Christmas Eve Mass is at midnight with the choir singing all the lovely Czech hymns. Better get there at 11:15 p.m. to get a seat. They have ordained three priests and four nuns from this parish. Forty-hour devotions were held a few weekends ago from Friday until Sunday. A special turtle feed luncheon at 25 cents per bowl was held last Thursday. The Fall Bazaar was held with meal tickets at 50 cents while the Blue Bird Symphony Orchestra played after the 10 a.m. Mass. During the summer, the St. Joseph Young Ladies Sodality presented “Lighthouse Nan” at the Biscay Hall. This summer they had a seven-day Mission Appeal service. Joe Navartil and Joe Svihel dug a “bored” well in front of Frank Bren’s house this summer. It is quite an implement. A horse walks around and around while a round 18-inch diameter, metal saw affair digs a plug of dirt out to be raised and emptied. It took quite a few days to go down 50 feet. The bandstand in the park is the home to many musicians, most notably the Silver Lake Concert Band, a group of about 45 Silver Lake male adults, dressed in smart white suits. They have played 163 engagements in the last five years, capturing many awards from Minneapolis, to Mankato to Virginia to Little Falls. Traveling at 40 miles an hour, they have many hours on the road. They are noted for their snappy marching and excellent vocal selections. At the Standard Station, Mr. Navratil was pumping 10 gallons of gas up into the glassdomed gas pump. He then unscrewed the gas cap from the car hood near the windshield and filled Mr. Chalupsky’s Model “A” Ford via gravity. The gas tank sits near the dashboard just above the rider’s feet and is fed to the engine via gravity. The radiator temperature gauge is part of the radiator cap, which sits out front on the radiator where the operator can keep an eye on it. Mr. Navratil has gas on sale at 5 gallons for 85 cents.

MCHS annual meeting set for Oct. 28; mystery tour slated Oct. 30
The 2013 annual meeting of the McLeod County Historical Society will be held Monday, Oct. 28, at 5:30 p.m., at the McLeod County Historical Society and Museum educational meeting room. A meal will be catered by Joanie’s Catering starting at 6 p.m., followed by the annual theme presentation, “Murder and Mayhem in McLeod County,” by Scott Rehmann. The board of directors and staff will present this year’s donor of the year award, volunteer of the year award, and its newest seventh-grade history project award winners. The museum’s executive board will hold a short business meeting of board member introductions and the election of open spots for the 2014 board of directors. RSVP by Thursday, Oct. 24. The “Murder & Mayhem Mystery Tour” is set for Wednesday, Oct. 30, from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m., starting at the McLeod County Historical Society and Museum. All year long, the McLeod County Historical Society and Museum have been bringing you the true stories of murder in McLeod County. From Halloween tricksters to starcrossed lovers, each of these murder cases happened right here in McLeod County. Now participants can have a front row seat to the places all of this mayhem occurred, with the Mystery and Mayhem Tour. McLeod County Sheriff Scott Rehmann will be the tour guide to terror as he highlights each of the mystery tour locations, and what he has uncovered in his research over the years. The museum has featured 18 different murders that occurred in the county between 1881 and 1959. Of these 18 murders, only a few of the most notorious will be a part of the Halloween murder tour. Although many of these murders occurred almost 100 years ago, the murderous motives could be ripped from the headlines today, with love, greed, and insanity playing key roles in each of the plots. Tour tickets include: coach bus seat, dinner at a mystery restaurant and entry into the “Murder and Mayhem” booklet drawing.

Homecoming beat down 42-28 over Waconia
By Josh Randt Sports Editor It was another cold and wet night at Stevens Seminary Stadium when the Glencoe-Silver Lake Panthers shellacked the Waconia Wildcats 42-28 on Friday, Oct. 11. The game wasn’t as close as the score suggests, as the Panthers took a 35-7 lead into the half. The Panther offense came out scoring early, featuring senior halfback Colton Lueders on the opening drive, who scored from 11 yards out for his first touchdown of the year. “It felt good getting the ball more often and getting some yards off of it,” Lueders said. “It was nice.” Head coach Scott Tschimperle said it was time for Lueders to take on a bigger workload after blocking for GSL’s other backs. “He’s done all the grunt work, blocking for (Jake) Stuedemann,” Tschimperle said. “We knew we had to give him some touches. He ran with a low pad level and made some tremendous runs. We just wanted to reward him for all the hard work he’s done.” Fellow halfback Jake Stuedemann rushed for 197 yards and four touchdowns against the Wildcats, though he said it was the diversity at running back that allowed him to have a big night. “It was mostly because he (Lueders) was getting the ball more and freeing it up,” Stuedemann said. “They weren’t just spying me the whole time. He was really opening it up for me. Plus, the blocks were good.” Now that the offense has three running backs with Stuedemann, Lueders and Dalton Clouse, and a quarterback who can rush the ball, opposing defenses will have to choose who to focus on, which could lead to big plays. “I think we need to just keep doing our thing,” Lueders said. “Keep using all three of us to get them confused more often.” “We all have our special talents and we’re all different, too,” Stuedemann added. “Teams can’t stop us if we mix all three of us in there.” Tschimperle echoed his players’ feelings. “(Using three backs) keeps defenses from keying on the other backs,” Tschimperle said. “They have to be aware of what Colton can do. The one thing with our backs, you never know who’s going to have a big game ... and as an option football team, you want that kind of balance. Depending upon the game, they can stop some of our guys, but not all of them.” Defensively, GSL held Waconia to 297 total offensive yards, with a big chunk of passing yards coming in the fourth quarter against the JV defense. Senior defensive tackle Tyler Donnay was chasing running backs all night, and sacked Waconia quarterback Shannon Storley twice. “I was just reading their line and getting to where they were going,” Donnay said nonchalantly. “Their line was doing their job, but I was just making it through, reading my guy and doing what I’ve been coached all week.” Tonight (Wednesday), the Panthers host the 1-6 DasselCokato Chargers on senior night. A victory clinches the Wright County Conference’s West Division for the second year in a row, and the No.1 seed in sections. “That’s what all the hard work is for,” Tschimperle said of the stakes of this game. “Every game you want to get better, and play your best when the playoffs come around ... If you don’t execute and play with a high level of intensity, you’re packing your stuff away the next day. We’re excited to be where we’re at right now.” Kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m. at Stevens Seminary Stadium.

Burr and Chelman earn all-conference
By Josh Randt Sports Editor The Glencoe-Silver Lake boys’ and girls’ cross country teams closed the door on the Wright County Conference schedule, competing at Collinwood Park in Cokato on Thursday, Oct. 10. Tori Burr earned all-conference honors for the girls, and Jac Chelman accomplished the same feat for the boys. Brandon Richter, Isiah Herout, Garrett Ober, Garret Ardolf and Cody Becker each received honorable mention honors for the boys on Thursday as well. The Panther boys finished in sixth place with 112 points out of 11 teams, as the Hutchinson Tigers claimed the boys’ WCC championship with 21 points. GSL’s girls took ninth place out of nine teams, scoring 228 points, with Annandale bringing home the championship at 50 points. Both teams took a break from the usual training regimen on Friday, running a football from Waconia back to the GSL High School Friday afternoon for homecoming. “It was a little windy, but it worked out really well,” boys’ head coach Jeff Delwiche said of Friday’s run. “We got a little storm for a bit, but we mostly just relaxed and had a good time.” Watertown-Mayer hosts the final invitational meet of the season for both teams before sights shift to the section meet at Milaca on Thursday, Oct. 24. a tight pack at the WCC championships, with the top five runners all finishing nearly within a minute of each other. Chelman returned to his usual form, placing 12th overall, and first on the team, with a time of 17:50 after injuries pushed him back at previous meets. He’ll now get some rest from the event on Tuesday, as Delwiche wants to save him for Milaca. Now, Delwiche hopes his team will get a jump start from the meet at Watertown-Mayer, and be ready to run at sections. As the goal remains to be running at the state meet come November. “We’re not worried about how we do, we just want to get there,” Delwiche said of the state meet. “Sure, we want them to run their best there, but I’m not focused on how we do at state. Let’s just make it there.” Mora stands to be GSL’s toughest competition at the section meet, as the two teams met earlier this month at the Swain Invitational in Duluth. Its topsix runners all placed in front of Richter, GSL’s top performer from that event, who finished in 22nd place with a time of 18:06. If the Panthers can earn second place at the section meet, they’ll be headed to St. Olaf College in November.

Lady Panthers win 3 straight
By Josh Randt Sports Editor Winning their last three games, the Glencoe-Silver Lake Lady Panthers have now built some confidence heading into the final stretch of the regular season before sections start on Oct. 21. The wins started a couple weeks ago at home against Annandale, and continued through this past week as the Panthers were victorious over New London-Spicer and Litchfield. NLS boasted a 15-7 record previous to hosting GSL, but the Wildcats were without Olivia Setterberg, a senior middle hitter who’s been vital to their success thus far. Still, the Panthers traveled to a hostile environment, and won in three sets, 25-23, 25-12 and 25-19. Feeding off that victory, GSL traveled to Litchfield two days later to cap off the Wright County Conference schedule. The Dragons claimed sets one and three, but could not stop the Panthers when the game was on the line. The Lady Panthers were digging up Dragon spikes all night, and matched their intensity at the net. Up 14-13 in the final set with both teams eyeing a victory, Courtney Konen scored the game-winning kill from the left side of the net after both teams had an opportunity to claim the point. “It was nerve wracking!” Konen said of the back-andforth volley that ended with her game-winning point. “But we just had to play intense, and we pulled through. That last game we definitely worked as a team.” Indeed, they did. GSL didn’t take the lead in the fifth set until it was 11-10. But at no point were they out of the game, and hustle plays and team effort allowed them to not only come back, but win. Though, head coach Lori Schwirtz said this team still has to improve before sections arrive. “A win is a win, so we’ll take it,” Schwirtz said. “I’m not really happy with our game performance tonight, but the composure and extra heart to battle did something for us tonight.” Schwirtz said she likes her team to run a fast-paced game, and felt like her Panthers allowed Litchfield to slow it down. “It took us out of our sync, our rhythm that we’re used to,” Schwirtz said. “But all in all, the girls worked for that win tonight. It was earned, it wasn’t given. So I’m happy about that.” A two-day tournament in Rochester this weekend is all that remains of the regular season. Sections start the week of Oct. 21 with high seeds hosting.

Weather Corner
By Jake Yurek
A wet start to the week will give way to a chilly end as Canada throws some cold stuff our way. A fairly strong storm system pushed through the Upper Midwest early in the week, leaving behind some much-needed rain. We’re still running a decent drought, so any rain is welcome at this point. Granted, I know it’s not the best timing with the harvest going on but, hopefully, there’s enough time for the farmers to get in the fields. Behind the early week storm things will cool off with highs running anywhere from 5 to 10 degrees below normal to end the week. Highs might have a tough time getting out of the 40s Friday into the weekend with lows below freezing, so make sure to protect or pull anything that’s frost or freeze susceptible. There will be a very weak chance of showers or sprinkles at best Thursday and Friday, but I’m not worried about washouts. Sprinkles may linger into Saturday as well, but that’s an even shakier forecast. For the most part the weekend is looking mostly OK, just a tad chillier than we’ve been used to so far this fall. Taking a look at the extended shows cool weather hanging on early next week with perhaps a slight ramp-up midweek. Have a great fall week, all! Ma dobry weekendem Mit dobry vikend Thursday — Highs 50-56; lows 32-39; mix clouds/sun, shower. Friday — Highs 47-54; lows 28-34; partly cloudy/sprinkle. Saturday — Highs 43-50; lows 27-33; partly cloudy/sprinkle. Sunday — Highs 47-53; clear. Weather Quiz: How’s the long-term (next few weeks) weather outlook shaping up? Answer to last week’s question: How rare are fall outbreaks of tornadoes in the upper Midwest? Late September early October tornadoes are very rare in the Upper Midwest with only a spotty outbreak typically seen every other year or so. Remember: I make the forecast, not the weather!

County has record number of tax-forfeited properties for auction
By Lori Copler Staff Writer McLeod County will offer a record number — 59, in fact — of tax-forfeited properties for sale at a public auction Nov. 7. County Auditor-Treasurer Cindy Schultz said that in typical years, the county has eight to 10 tax-forfeited parcels that are put up for sale at auction. She reviewed the tax-forfeited properties with the County Board at its Oct. 8 meeting. This year’s offering is inflated by over 21 lots the county acquired from abandoned residential developments. Schultz said those lots are from the Winsted on the Lake addition in Winsted, the Island View Heights Fourth Addition in Hutchinson and several undeveloped lots in Glencoe. Those developments started in the middle of the 2000s, but “the developers walked away from them when the housing market crashed in 2007,” said Schultz. The lots in the Winsted development are actually part of a town-home association, said Schultz, and would likely be subjected to covenants required by the association. Other properties include residential homes, commercial property and “outlots” and abandoned railroad property throughout the county and its communities. The County Board set minimum bid amounts for each of the properties. Some also have assessments against them for unpaid utility bills or street or utility improvement projects, and Schultz said those assessments would either have to be paid when the property is sold, or the city councils in the involved cities would need to waive them. Schultz said that the properties’ most recent owners could also try to redeem the property by negotiating with her office to pay the unpaid taxes and assessments, but those property owners aren’t allowed to participate in the auction process. Schultz also said that the process leading up to the auction began about 90 days ago, when cities and the DNR were notified about the availability of the properties. Those entities have the first option to buy them. Schultz said the county offers its tax-forfeited parcels at auction every other year, alternating with election years. The auction will be held Nov. 7 at 9:30 a.m. at the county’s North Complex. In other business Oct. 8, the County Board: • Heard from Kathy Nowak, public health coordinator, that the federal government’s partial shutdown could impact local recipients involved in federal programs, such as Women, Infants and Children (WIC) beneficiaries. Nowak said the county currently has enough WIC funding to carry it through the end of October, but WIC recipients could lose benefits after that if the shutdown continues, plus some public health personnel may be “furloughed” because their salaries are paid through the federal funds. • Sold a vacant countyowned house in Hutchinson, which had been used as a youth group home, to Dan and Betty Werth of rural Buffalo Lake for $25,000, which was the minimum bid the County Board had set for the property. It was the only bid received for the property. • Agreed to reduce the assessed value of a vacant building owned by Telex south of GSL High School to $772,600 from $993,400, a difference of $220,800. County Assessor Sue Schultz said there are seven different parcels plus a building involved in the property. The building, she said, is in poor condition inside, but is still structurally sound. • Set two upcoming workshops: the County Board will meet Monday, Oct. 21, at 9 a.m., to discuss long-range plans and its proposed courthouse/jail project; and it will have a workshop Tuesday, Oct. 29, to discuss its proposed 2014 budget and levy.

Delegates looking forward to national FFA convention
Final fundraiser, send-off dinner set Oct. 23
By Lori Copler Staff Writer ight members of the Glencoe-Silver Lake FFA Chapter are eagerly looking forward to the national FFA convention set Oct. 30-Nov. 2 in Louisville, Ky. The convention will be the culmination of months of planning and fundraising for the eight, which includes Maddie Kuehn, Derek Ortloff, Samantha Lange, Matthew Dahlke, Thomas Becker, Zach Pierson, Kristen Barott and Samantha Dahlke. Each of them needed to raise about $500 for the trip, but after an individual $100 down payment, the eight decided to make it a group fundraising effort, rather than an individual effort, selling candy bars and approaching businesses and organizations for donations. To date, the group has received donations from Alsleben Livestock Trucking, Sno Pros, Upper Midwest Allis Chalmers Club, Ag Star, Dubbs, McLeod County Agricultural Association, Carver County Pork Producers, New Auburn VFW, Jungclaus Equipment, Glencoe Co-op, First Minnesota Bank and the John Deere Tractor Club. “We can’t begin to thank our sponsors enough,” said GSL FFA adviser Becky Haddad.

Ambassadors visit orchard
On Saturday, the Silver Lake Ambassadors enjoyed a day at Apple Jack Orchards in Delano for the “Delano Royalty Day.” From left to right are Jamie Kosek, Claire Wraspir and Becca Green. The trio will be in attendance for the Halloween event on Thursday, Oct. 31, at the Silver Lake Auditorium.
They are hoping their final fundraising boost — a sendoff dinner Oct. 23 — will put them over the edge on their fundraising efforts. The send-off dinner will be held at Dubbs in Glencoe, and will be an all-you-can-eat ribs and chicken dinner, served Oct. 23 from 5 to 8 p.m. The group prefers that tickets are bought in advance for a rough head count, but they can also be bought at the door that evening. ***** Five of the eight attendees will be attending the national convention for the second straight year, and brought back good reports for their fellow FFA members. “It was a great time,” said Lange of the 2012 convention, which was held in Indianapolis. Along with general business sessions, the national convention attendees heard motivational speakers, attended a career fair and took part in other sessions. They also had the chance to tour Indianapolis, including the Speedway and other attractions. And, they said, they got to interact with fellow FFAers from all over the nation, meeting people from as far away as Alaska, Texas and New York. The 2013 national convention in Louisville offers a great line-up, too, this year’s
attendees said. The eight will board a coach bus at 5 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 29, and will arrive in Louisville at about noon on Wednesday, Oct. 30. On the way, they will visit a honey farm in Martinsville, Ind. The opening session of the national convention will be Wednesday, Oct. 30, and will be followed by a concert by country music star Dierks Bentley. Thursday’s events include tours of the Louisville Slugger factory, the Kentucky Horse Park, convention activities, the FFA expo and career fair and then the “World’s Toughest Rodeo” at the Kentucky Exposition Center. Friday is dedicated almost exclusively to convention activities, including hearing from Joe Torillo, a New York firefighter who was buried, twice, in the rubble of the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001. Convention business finishes up on Saturday and the students will depart for home at about 12:30 p.m., arriving back in Glencoe in the early morning hours of Sunday, Nov. 3. ***** The eight attendees will serve as delegates for the GSL chapter. They were chosen through an essay and interview process by alumni of the organization.

Attention Armed Forces Families and Friends!
We are proud to announce that we will be publishing a special page in the Nov. 6 edition of the McLeod County Chronicle and the Nov. 7 edition of the Silver Lake Leader, saluting our area service men and women who are currently serving here and abroad. We would like you to include your loved one on this page. Please send or bring a picture of your armed forces special person with the completed form below.

Annual McLeod County Christmas Project will get under way soon
The annual McLeod County Christmas Project is approaching, and McLeod Social Services invites area agencies to join in the effort this year. “Every year we work together with the businesses, churches and agencies in the surrounding communities in an effort to fulfill the wishes of the children in our county who may not otherwise have the opportunity to experience the feeling of receiving Christmas gifts,” said Veronica Coates and Lisa Eystad, coordinators of the program. “This year we will be setting up all the toys/gifts donated for parents to have the opportunity to come in and select toys/gifts for their children,” they added. The following are three ways one or one’s agency can participate in the project: 1) request tags for your agency tree; 2) display a collection box for new toy donations appropriate for ages 0-17; or, 3) make a monetary donation by making checks payable to McLeod County Christmas Project and send it to: Health and Human Services 1805 Ford Ave. N., Suite 100 Glencoe, MN 55336 Money collected will be used to purchase additional toys/gifts. Beginning the week of Dec. 9-13 and Dec. 16-17, the program will be accepting donations at 630 E. 10th St., Glencoe, in front of the Glencoe Police Department. The hours will be 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., but if that doesn’t work, please call/e-mail to make other arrangements. The Christmas Project contacts are listed below in case one is interested in participating and/or to request tags, or if you have any questions regarding the project: Veronica Coates, 320-8641316 or veronica.coates@co. mcleod.mn.us. Lisa Eystad, 320-864-1247 or lisa.eystad@co.mcleod. mn.us.

75 YEARS AGO - OCT. 22, 1938 — Sunday, Oct. 23, is the day of the annual bazaar and fall festival at the Church of St. Adalbert. The ladies of the parish will serve a big chicken dinner with a supper served later. There will be games and amusements for the young and old throughout the afternoon and evening. Six people of the Silver Lake community escaped death on Sunday, Oct. 2, in an automobile accident in Hopkins. They were Mrs. Adolph Ondracek, Mrs. Adolph Travnicek, Mr. and Mrs. Elvin Yukel, Mrs. Emily Yukel and Harvey Ondracek. The folks were on their way home when the driver, Elvin Yukel, noticed another car going in the opposite direction had veered toward him. Although Mr. Yukel had nearly come to a dead stop against the guard fence, he was unable to escape the impact and was saved from going down the steep grade only by the guard cable. Mr. and Mrs. A.C. Navratil narrowly escaped serious injury on Sunday, Oct. 2, returning from Hopkins when they were struck by a hit-andrun driver on the pavement, knocking off a wheel of their car and shaking them up. George Micka, well-known Hutchinson farmer, suffered three broken ribs and back and kidney injuries when he fell from a load of hay. Joseph Koktan will hold an auction on Monday, Oct. 24, at his farm 4-1/2 miles southwest of Silver Lake.

Mrs. Harlan Wegscheid, 28, died enroute to the University Hospital as a result of the accident. A son was born on Oct. 10 to Mr. and Mrs. Gary (Evelyn Vorlicek) Esping. 25 YEARS AGO - OCT 20, 1988 — On Monday, Oct.17, 357 voters turned out to cast their vote on the 10-mill referendum with 232 voters saying no to the request and 125 voters saying yes.
