Fire Prevention Week: Silver Lake fire chief offers several safety tips
By Alyssa Schauer Staff Writer Fire Prevention Week is set for Oct. 7 through Oct. 11 this year and Silver Lake Fire Chief Dale Kosek suggests a few tips for homeowners and families to be prepared. “The most obvious thing is to check smoke detectors. Make sure they are up-to-date and working, and if they have low batteries, change them,” Kosek said. He added that checking carbon monoxide detectors is also very important, especially in the upcoming winter months. “Most calls we have regarding the carbon monoxide detectors are false. We are paged out to a house but it’s because their machine is old and outdated. It’s important to do monthly self-tests on the detectors,” Kosek said. He also added the following: • Do not leave candles unattended, especially with Halloween approaching. Avoid using candles in bedrooms and sleeping areas and extinguish candles after use. Also, keep them at least 12 inches away from anything that can burn. • Acquire burning permits from your local township or government entity. • Plan a family fire drill and
Fire Chief Dale Kosek design an escape plan before winter sets in. Practice an escape plan from every room in the house, and caution everyone to stay low to the floor when escaping from fire. Select a location where everyone can meet after escaping the house. • Check wiring in sheds, garages, and barns. • Do not overload electrical circuits with too many cords and electronics. Do not place cords and wires under rugs or

Firefighters burn trailer for training
By Alyssa Schauer Staff Writer Orange flames and black smoke lit up the sky this weekend as the Silver Lake Fire Department practiced safety techniques and fire drills in an abandoned trailer at a property north of Silver Lake Saturday morning. Bob Scheidt, former Glencoe fire chief and current fire rescue consultant at the Center for Business and Industry at South Central College, helped the department organize the trailer burn, with the help of other South Central instructors. “The trailer burn is a prescribed burn that gives the firefighters an opportunity to practice hose drills and safety techniques in the event of a house fire,” Scheidt said. “These activities assist them in future incidents. It teaches them safety processes and procedures, suppression techniques, and it gives them the chance to practice fighting fires,” Scheidt said. Instructors and department members loaded wooden pallets and straw bales into the trailer to build the prescribed fires in different rooms, such as the kitchen, the living room, the bedroom and bathroom, and each room was lit one at a time to give everyone an opportunity to handle the fire. The Silver Lake Fire Department was divided into five teams, and different instructors led their teams into the trailer to fight the single-room fires. Instructors on scene included Buzz Comstock and Carl Riese from the Mankato Fire Department, Brandon Phillips of the Henderson Fire Department, Ryan Englemann of the Plato Fire Department, and Cory Scheidt and Tom Brinkmann of the Glencoe Fire Department. The Cokato Fire Department also was on scene for assistance in pump operations. “These single-room fires teach the firefighters what to watch for in respect to safety and search-rescue,” Scheidt said. He added that prescribed burns also give pump operators the opportunity to “hone their skills. “Essentially, this is a learning activity. It also gives us the chance to work with the fire chief (Dale Kosek) to assist him in duties as chief, regarding communication on scene,” Scheidt said. The Silver Lake Ambulance also was on scene to provide “rehabilitation” medical attention to the department. “In the evolution of fire fighting, on-scene medical care has become a necessity. Almost all fire calls will now request an ambulance on scene to monitor the health of the department members fighting fires. “The EMTs (emergency medical technicians) check blood pressures, blood sugars, oxygen stats, temperatures and pulse rates. Most fire-related deaths of department members are from after effects of smoke inhalation, over-exertion, etc.,” Scheidt said. Scheidt said he worked with the state and the Silver Lake department to obtain all proper burning permits to execute the trailer burn. “South Central College has worked with Silver Lake rescue services for many years, and the department has a great group of guys here, always eager to learn something new,” Scheidt said.

Jail spends over $100,000 a year to board inmates elsewhere
County hopes to save with jail expansion plan
By Lori Copler Staff Writer An analysis of five years of inmate housing shows that the McLeod County Jail has been spending well over $100,000 a year to board inmates in other facilities. At a public hearing that had been held Sept. 17 regarding a proposed 15-bed expansion of the current jail, as well as security improvements at the courthouse, county officials said the sheriff’s department could save about $100,000 annually by eliminating most of the out-of-county boarding of inmates. The cost of boarding inmates elsewhere peaked in 2009, when it cost the county $197,695. But Sheriff Scott Rehmann said 2009 was a blip in the statistics, because nearly all of McLeod County’s inmates were boarded elsewhere. “That was the year that we completed some significant improvements in the jail,” said Rehmann. Those improvements, including “suicideproofing” jail cells, came at the behest of the Minnesota Department of Corrections (DOC). Inmates were housed elsewhere during the construction period. In the years since, the county paid $134,640 in 2010, $111,210 in 2011 and $114,900 in 2012 to board inmates in other facilities. Through August of this year, the county has spent $62,205. Rehmann said the county has had to house out 17 to 18 percent of its jail population in order to meet DOC regulations, which include classifying inmates in several categories, including maximum vs. less security and males vs. females. At the Sept. 17 public hearing, McLeod County Attorney Mike Junge said that the addition of the beds to the jail could be done without increasing staff, but that there may still be some out-of-county housing of inmates depending on the mix of classifications at any particular time. The county still hopes to find a significant savings of about $100,000 a year with the addition, which also will provide DOC-required space for inmates to meet with counselors, nurses and attorneys. The county is proposing a $7 million project that will add on to the jail, create a secure entrance, create a secure passageway between the jail and one of the three courtrooms (one other courtroom already has a secure passage) as well as other security improvements. The County Board also is hoping that a probate judge will approve using between $3.8 million and $4 million from the Annamarie Tudhope estate to pay for the jail expansion. Tudhope, former publisher and editor of the Glencoe Enterprise, bequeathed the bulk of her estate to the county for the construction of a new jail. Because the project is an expansion of the existing jail and not the construction of a new one, a judge will need to determine if the project is in keeping with the intent of Tudhope’s will. Rehmann also said the county’s security committee met last week and has been

over nails. Kosek also added suggestions for those using woodburning stoves and those disposing of paint cans and rags. “With wood-burning stoves, one should remember to not burn green wood. This is what causes the majority of chimney fires,” Kosek said. Regarding paint supplies, Kosek reminds homeowners to “dispose of paint rags and varnish rags separately. The best bet is to seal the paint cans before disposing. That way not much oxygen can get in the can to start a fire,” Kosek said. With the holiday season approaching, Kosek said to use “extra caution” in the use of extension cords for extra Christmas lighting, etc. Kosek also suggested clearing homes of clutter. “Clutter is a huge hazard to fire safety. It’s a fire trap waiting to happen, so clean hallways and rooms of clutter,” Kosek said. He added that he has found boxes sitting on extension cords and piled next to heaters in some homes. “The best thing is to clean it up. Keep the cords cleared and keep items at
least three feet from heaters,” he said. To create awareness for fire prevention, the Silver Lake Fire Department will be teaching third-grade students at Lakeside Elementary about fire safety techniques on Tuesday, Oct. 8. “Pets are Braggin’ and Tails are Waggin’ at...”

My grape weekend as Lucille Ball
This Saturday, I had the incredible chance to live out one of my childhood fantasies — to stomp grapes in a wine vat like Lucille Ball did in the infamous “grape stomping” episode of “I Love Lucy.” You know, the episode where Lucy and an Italian woman get into a brawl and end up swimming in the giant wooden tub of squished grapes? Well, I didn’t get into a brawl with an Italian woman (though to be honest, I was kind of hoping to get in a grape-tossing fight), but I did get five whole minutes to dance around in a pool of juicy grapes and dye my toes purple at the Crow River Winery’s annual “Grape Stomp.” Oh, don’t worry — they do not use the stomped grapes in their wines. I think. The grape stomp includes several different stomping competitions, including the grape stomping tournament, the “Itty Bitty Stomp” for kids, the “I Love Lucy Stomp” for the Lucille Balls of the world, and a “Trash the Dress Stomp” for brides to stomp grapes wearing wedding dresses and even wrestle each other to see who can come out of the wooden barrel looking the most purple. All last week I watched clips of the “Lucy’s Italian Movie” episode just to prepare myself for the event, practicing my best “Lucy” funny faces and dancing around the kitchen, hands on my hips, hopping up and down as if I were in Italy, squishing grapes. I even convinced my cousin, Laura, into joining me for the messy endeavor and we spent Thursday afternoon in thrift stores, trying on several different dresses until we found the perfect 1950s peasant-looking outfits, complete with handkerchiefs for our hair and dangly earrings — just like Lucy. But I couldn’t have picked a worse time to participate in the grape stomp. Saturday was filled with taking pictures of the fire department’s trailer burn training, helping my cousin pack to move to North
The Travel Section
By Alyssa Schauer
Dakota, writing the news stories for the week since I’ll be out of the office until Monday, and packing for the World Dairy Expo, for which I was leaving at 7 a.m. Sunday morning. Sometimes I just don’t think clearly about my schedule, but I managed to squeeze in a couple hours of time to dress up like Lucille Ball and stomp some grapes with seven other Lucys. It was worth the lack of sleep Saturday night and the fact I had to bring some newspaper work with me to the Expo. Naturally, in true Schauer form, I was running late for the grape stomp, and about a mile from the winery, Grandma Genny was calling that they were announcing my name, looking for me for the contest. I stepped on the gas and rumbled into the parking lot, squeezed into the only available spot left in the lot, jumped out of the Jeep, and raced to the stage as spectators cheered my cousin and me on, “Run, Lucys, run!” Thankfully, we made it with more than enough time to join the second heat of Lucys for the “I Love Lucy” portion, and my adrenaline was pumping as my cousin and I danced around the crowd excitedly, waiting for the competition to begin. The wooden barrel was five feet in diameter, about two feet in height, and it sat in a makeshift outdoor staging area behind the winery. Before stepping into the purple ocean of cold, mushy grapes, we were told to rub baby oil on our legs and feet. I think this helps keep the grapes from staining our skin, though I must say, I still have purple toes. I headed up to the stage, carefully lifted my red dress to my knees and kicked one leg over the barrel into the grapes. I couldn’t help but make the same, wide-eyed, repulsed face Lucy did when she stepped into the wine vat in Italy as my foot touched the cold, wet, soft grapes. My feet sank into the heaps of stems and oozing fruit and the clock started. We had five minutes to stomp the grapes, and my cousin and I, along with the other two Lucys in our heat, hopped around in a circular pattern, crushing bunches left and right. We got into a rhythm and started do-si-doing in circles around the other Lucys before both of us slipped and nearly fell into the bubbly, deep purple mess of mashed grapes. Would you believe after two minutes I got tired of jumping around? Stomping grapes is quite the workout, and I thought the activity would make for a fun, entertaining exercise video. I think Richard Simmons would be interested. And as if I wasn’t already enjoying stomping grapes, I found we each earned a free bottle of wine and a “Grape Stomp” T-shirt from Crow River for participating! I’m already planning on kicking grapes around again next year, whether I have a wedding or not, and I am thinking of investing in several pounds of the seedless fruit at the local grocery store to practice. Anybody want to join me?

GSL FFA members attend Greenhands regional event
By Becky Haddad GSL FFA adviser Thirty-four students from Glencoe-Silver Lake Junior High school left at 6:30 a.m. Sept. 25 for the Prairie Woods Environmental Learning Center. The students started the day with nervous, “What are we going to be doing today?” and mostly came home with big smiles. Greenhands in the Spotlight is hosted by Region V FFA every fall so that new FFA members can become acquainted with what FFA is and the opportunities it offers. Upon arrival, students were promptly greeted with a game of “Ninja,” led by the Region V officers. After opening ceremonies, students broke into groups and spent time learning about the FFA emblem, creed, motto and potential opportunities, including career development events and supervised agricultural experiences. One of the sessions was led by GSL’s Zach Pierson, who serves as a Region V director. Other students headed to “the farm,” where they got to climb the rock wall, scale the ropes course, or take a ride on the flying squirrel. Students also participated in team-building activities and networking functions. Also hosted on Sept. 25 was the Chapter Leaders Conference, where GSL’s high school FFA officers spent the day putting together their chapter office guide. The officers, including Sam Lange, Laura Becker, Becca Green, Kirsten Barott, Kole Polzin and Maddie Kuehn, chose as their vision statement for the year, “To increase involvement and enthusiasm among FFA members and alumni.” And they are certainly hitting the ground running with that goal at the forefront. From planning activities for “Officer Togetherness,” to setting their communication plan in place, to developing an ag literacy project and selecting chapter goals, this is a group of go-getters. GSL FFA is looking forward to seeing the results of the spark that was ignited Sept. 25. The enthusiasm sparked by such a conference only grows as it begins an October full of career development events and looks forward to the national convention.
Down Memory Lane
Compiled by Margaret Benz
75 YEARS AGO - OCT. 8, 1938 — A series of petty thefts and break-ins recently occurred when two bulk stations were broken into at the Minnesota-Western tracks and the rear door of Danek’s Hardware store broken open. At the Standard Bulk Station, agent F.A. Bandas reports the loss of several cases of oil valued at about $35. Mr. Chalupsky of the Conoco Bulk Station reports his loss at about $5. The person breaking in at Danek’s evidently was frustrated as no loss was discovered. The Silver Lake Village Council will receive sealed bids for the purchase of the dwelling only known as the late residence of Jozefka Zrust near the public school. Due to numerous complaints that minors and school students are permitted to frequent places licensed to sell 3.2 beer and liquors, the Silver Lake Village Council gives notice that the police have been ordered to enforce the law and operators of such places found guilty of selling beer or liquor to minors or permitting minors to frequent their places of business or permitting adults to purchase beer or liquor for minors will have their license revoked without notice.

Not much to slay Injuries hit Panthers beat Dragons 40-7 at Litchfield CC teams
By Josh Randt Sports Editor Sitting atop the West Division of the Wright County Conference, the Glencoe-Silver Lake Panthers established their dominance over the Litchfield Dragons early in Friday’s game. Quarterback Keaton Anderson went 80 yards untouched on the first play from scrimmage, giving GSL a 7-0 advantage. Running a midline play, Anderson pulled the ball from Dalton Clouse at fullback after seeing the defensive end collapse down. “It was just pure reading,” Anderson said. "We just started riding (the option) and their end didn’t do much. Then he crashed at the last second, so I pulled and just took it around the end. It was wide open.” Litchfield made some adjustments defensively after the big play, and forced GSL to punt on its next drive. But once the Panthers got the ball back with 8:46 remaining in the first quarter, they went on a signature drive from their own 20-yard line. The Panther offense drove the length of the field in 13 plays, and ate up six minutes of the first-quarter clock before Jake Stuedemann punched it in from five yards out for a 14-0 advantage. “That’s the beauty about our offense; our kids don’t care who gets the credit as long as we win,” head coach Scott Tschimperle said. “When one guy doesn’t have a big game, another one does.” GSL’s defense gave up one touchdown when Litchfield took advantage of good field position early in the second quarter when the Panthers fumbled on their own 21-yard line. Other than that, the Panther defense slayed the Dragon offense, stuffing Litchfield ball carriers for a measly 86 yards By Josh Randt Sports Editor The Panther cross country teams had a quality showing against some strong Wright County Conference competition last week at Dassel-Cokato’s invitational meet. The problem both teams now face is overcoming injuries that have hit multiple runners. Sophomore Michael Schaefer is now out for the season with a possible stress fracture in his hips. “Whatever it is, it’s going to take him out indefinitely,” head coach Jeff Delwiche said. “It doesn’t matter whether or not he had it (a stress fracture), the doctors are recommending the same physical therapy for it either way.” Replacing Schaefer will be Casey Shultz, who has already seen time on varsity this year. Erica Hecksel and Taylor Venier also suffered injuries at the DC meet for the girls, with Hecksel bruising her foot, and Venier twisting her ankle. “Erica’s spike came up through her shoe and bruised her foot. Taylor stepped on a root and twisted her ankle,” girls’ head coach Jann Savre said. Despite the injuries, GlencoeSilver Lake’s boys’ team nabbed second place with 67 team points, 19 points behind first-place Delano with 48. The girls’ team finished seventh with 166 points. Tori Burr had another top-five finish, claiming third place with a time of 15:41. GSL travels to Litchfield on Thursday this week, but Delwiche said he may have the JV boys run varsity in order to save his top runners for the weekend meet in Duluth. Hecksel will not run Thursday at Litchfield for the girls. Savre said she’ll hopefully be ready for Duluth on Saturday. Taylor Venier will possibly run Thursday, but the lineup is currently undetermined.
It would have been tough for the boys to overtake Delano from the top spot, as its top four runners claimed first through fourth place at DC. “It was a good day; I don’t think we could have done any better,” Delwiche said. “I don’t think there’s any way we were going to beat Delano. They’ve put four in front of us for three or four meets in a row.” Though his team has some injuries, Delwiche said his team is performing quite well. “We just have to put it together on the right days,” he said.

Jake Stuedemann breaks around the left side of the Panther line for a 5-yard score during the 40-7 victory over the Litchfield Dragons on Friday, Sept. 27. rushing, compared to GSL’s 342 in the 40-7 blowout. With senior defensive captain Keenan Mehlos out with an injury, fellow captain Carter Pinske said it “felt like I really had to step up into his role. To get us a win, I had to come out and fire up the defense and get us a little angry.” Coaches oftentimes say not to play angry for fear of losing technique, but what GSL lost in finesse it gained in power and play-making abilities. Four Panthers, including Pinske, sacked Litchfield quarterback Alex Hendricks, and kept the Dragon passing game grounded with the exception of a 28-yard toss to Cody Rau. “He’s their whole offense pretty much,” Pinske said of Rau. “We were basing everything around him, and didn’t want him to get outside.” Rau had Litchfield’s only pass reception, and only managed five yards on one carry as GSL held the Dragons to 114 total offensive yards. GSL now hosts the Spring Lake Park Panthers from Section 4 (Class AAAAA) Friday night at Stevens Seminary Stadium. “They have two very good halfbacks,” Tschimperle said of Spring Lake Park. “They’re very elusive runners that have great balance. They’re tremendous athletes that don’t go down easy.” SLP also runs a veer option offense like GSL’s, which will test the Panther defense. “We have to be very disciplined on defense,” Tschimperle said. “Our offense has to control the game and the clock, so we can keep their offense off the field and slow them down.”
The girls’ team finished in seventh place at DC, with Burr producing another strong finish, coming in third with a time of 15:41. In order to move up as a team, GSL needs to close some of the gaps between runners. “We ran some better times at Norwood and Waconia,” Savre said. “We race a little conservative, saving too much for the end of the race. I would love to see them bust loose at a meet.” Hecksel finished with a time of 19:32, good enough for 49th place, while Taylor Venier finished in 55th place with a 20:02. A pair of freshman were called upon for Thursday’s race, as Pricilla Friberg and Marlaina Chelman saw time at the varsity level.

Tigers clobber Panthers
Lose in three, 25-9, 25-16, 25-16 to top-ranked Delano
By Josh Randt Sports Editor The Lady Panthers fell to 513 after losing games to GFW and Delano last week. After dropping the first set, 25-20 to GFW, Glencoe-Silver Lake came back and won a tough second set, 25-23, but lost sets three and four 25-23, and 25-22. The scores were not that close against Delano, however, as the Tigers came to town with a pair of 6-footers and an array of talented players. GSL lost in three sets, 25-9, 25-16 and 25-16 as the Tigers were blocking and spiking all over the Panthers. The Lady Panthers were playing close to the net all night, trying to dig-up the Delano spikes, but the size and power of Shelby Seurer and Alex Wittinger proved to be too much. Still, senior captain Steph Klockmann said her team came away with some positives. “We played as a team tonight. We didn’t get down on each other,” Klockmann said. “It was fun to play together tonight. We were just trying to get in the flow of it and stay positive, instead of getting down on each other.” Despite the loss, the Lady Panthers did seem to make the most of the situation, and still managed to score 16 points in sets two and three. “Sixteen points, that’s pretty good for playing against a strong team like that,” Klockmann said. “We played hard, and we knew it was going to be a hard game coming into it.” Head coach Lori Schwirtz

Boys’ 2-2 tie felt like a win
By Josh Randt Sports Editor Earning a tie against Mankato Loyola, the boys’ soccer team notched a goal with 10 seconds left when Lou Iacona scored on a rebound after Aaron Geisen put a shot on goal. The tie is a culmination of hard work and 11 players coming together as a team. “This result and performance is the highlight of our season!” head coach Jeff Shults said excitedly. “This game was our fourth game this week. Tired and in pain, the boys were working very hard and found a way to succeed.” The first goal of the game was scored by AJ Anderson Sanchez, who was assisted by senior captain Gustavo Villalobos. “This goal brought even more confidence to our team,” Shults said. “Our pressuring improved as we played, and our goalie Spencer Lund did an outstanding job to keep Mankato from scoring.” Once Iacona’s equalizer evened the score, the teams went into overtime. “For the first five minutes of the first overtime, we were the aggressors,” Shults said. “But in the second overtime, Mankato had more possessions and we only tried to counter attack. Nobody scored, but our team felt like winners after that game.” Glencoe-Silver Lake hosted Worthington in a makeup game from Aug. 27 on Tuesday. The Panthers now travel to Holy Family on Thursday to wrap up the regular season. The section tournament begins Monday, Oct. 7, with the Panthers most likely traveling to the higher seed’s location.

Taylor Novak prepares to bump a Delano serve to her setter during a Wright County Conference game on Thursday, Sept. 26. said she tried to prepare her players as best as she could, but ultimately, Delano is just an extremely tough team. “I told them that this was going to be by far the toughest battle that we were going to face this year,” Schwirtz said. “And that we had to go out and focus on the positives, because if we folded, it would have been 25-2.” Schwirtz told her team after the game, “I’m proud of them. They played with class, and didn’t give up. They worked hard and I just want them to be excited about the good things that they did tonight.” GSL traveled to Hutchinson on Tuesday for a rivalry game with the Tigers. The Panthers then host Annandale on Thursday, before traveling to New LondonSpicer on Tuesday, Oct. 8.

Weather Corner
By Jake Yurek
Here comes the rain! We’ve had some rather nice aboveaverage fall weather recently and, as they say, all good things must come to an end. A large storm system has been hitting the northwest coast for a few days now and a piece of this will join up with some Gulf moisture and dump a decent amount of rain on the area late in the week. Things should get going late Wednesday night as showers and storms develop with periodic bouts of rain/thunder pretty much all the way to early Saturday. Early indications point to anywhere from one-half to over 3 inches of rain, depending on where the heavy rain bands set up (latest runs have been pushing the bulls-eye north), so this could go a long way in helping with our worsening drought. If the rain persists during the days on Friday and Saturday, highs will have a tough time getting out of the 50s. Sunday, it looks like the system will move far enough away to clear things up a bit and allow temperatures to make a run at 60. The long range forecast is a bit shaky, but I’d expect much of the same continuing … normal fall ups and downs. Have a great week, all; stay dry! Ma dobry weekendem Mit dobry vikend Wednesday night — Lows 52-58; rain/thunder late. Thursday — Highs 62-68; lows 50-56; rain/thunder. Friday — Highs 57-63; lows 40-46; rain showers linger. Saturday — Highs 48-56; lows 36-42; showers early/clouds. Sunday — Highs 57-64; clearing. Weather Quiz: How do average compare from the start of the month to the end? Answer to last week’s question: What are some of October’s weather extremes? Highest temperature 90 degrees (Oct. 3, 1997 and Oct. 10, 1928); lowest temperature 10 degrees (Oct. 30, 1925); most precipitation 4.61 inches (Oct. 4, 1905); and most snowfall 8.2 inches at the start of the Halloween blizzard of 1991. Remember: I make the forecast, not the weather!
County Board sets tentative Oct. 8 workshop to discuss courthouse project
By Lori Copler Staff Writer The McLeod County Board of Commissioners tentatively set a workshop session for Tuesday, Oct. 8, after its regular meeting to discuss its proposed $7 million courthouse security/jail expansion project, prior to voting on the project at its Oct. 22 meeting. But Board Chair Paul Wright said Tuesday morning at the County Board meeting that the Oct. 8 workshop may be postponed, because the County Board has a “pretty hefty” meeting agenda for Oct. 8. And Wright also said that two commissioners may also have 1 p.m. meetings that day, which would further crimp the schedule. County Auditor-Treasurer Cindy Schultz said that she requires up to an hour of the County Board’s time Oct. 8 as it considers setting minimum values on about 60 parcels of forfeited property. Schultz said each of those properties will need to be reviewed individually and the suggested minimum value reviewed by the County Board. The minimum values must be approved before the tax-forfeited properties are put up for auction, Schultz said. Wright also noted that a county highway project update and road tour that had been set for this Tuesday’s meeting (Oct. 1) has been postponed, and needs to be rescheduled. If an Oct. 8 workshop does not work out for the security/jail issue, the County Board could perhaps reschedule both items for the same day prior to the Oct. 22 meeting.
