School Board adopts new youth development plan
By Alyssa Schauer Staff Writer The Glencoe-Silver Lake School Board defined and approved a “youth development plan” at its meeting Tuesday evening. Due to the Veterans Day holiday on Monday, Nov. 11, the School Board on met on Tuesday at Lakeside Elementary. A youth development plan needs to be approved in order to receive youth services revenue in the amount of $1 per capita for the 2013-14 and 2014-15 school years in accordance with Minnesota state statute. Board member Jamie Alsleben said the key areas of the youth development plan include leadership development, community building, and career exploration. “The plan is set in place to increase student participation in the community activities committee. These goals and key areas are building off what community ed already has in place. We’re continuing to build upon what is there,” Alsleben said. He said an example of the development plan regarding career exploration includes expanding opportunities to provide GSL youth with “at least 10 activities involving STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math).” Alsleben added that the plan also calls for providing health and basic living classes, such as lifeguarding and babysitting. He said these classes help local employers, such as the pools in Glencoe and Silver Lake. Business Manager Michelle Sander said the funding piece of this plan is part of the levy. “We’ve always received money for the plan, but we never had a working document in place highlighting the goals. This plan is a groundwork of goals to work on for things to offer our youth,” Sander said. “A lot of things have been offered (for youth) in the past, but this is more of a ‘legal’ document to prove we are doing so. It’s a living, working document that will be helpful in moving forward,” Alsleben said. He said the drive to put the plan in writing came from other schools in the area and in the metro. “The state has this statute in place and other schools were sort of looking to GSL for plans. We didn’t find a lot in

It’s been a ‘trying year’ for Frank, Therese Hlavka
By Alyssa Schauer Staff Writer o say 2013 has been a “trying year” for Silver Lake natives Frank and Therese (Shimanski) Hlavka is an understatement. Last December, Frank, 55, was diagnosed with cholangiocarcinoma (bile duct cancer) and three months later, Therese was diagnosed with stage 3 ovarian cancer. The journey started last Thanksgiving when Frank started feeling pain in his shoulder and in his side. “He first started feeling ‘off’ when he was out elk hunting in Colorado early last November. He would get chills, then get really hot, and he felt pain in his shoulder. “Then, over Thanksgiving, we were at our son Justin’s for the holiday, when he started feeling sharp pain in his sides. He knew something was definitely wrong because he hadn’t felt pain like that before,” Therese said. Initially, she thought he needed his gallbladder removed, because she had similar pains a year earlier and had her gallbladder removed. “We went in to acute care in Worthington and the ultrasound on his gallbladder came back clear. So they did a CT scan and found a mass on his liver. Then he was sent to a GI (gastrointestinal) doctor before getting referred to a specialist in Sioux Falls. “They did a biopsy and more testing and found the grapefruit-sized mass on his liver. On Dec. 8, he was diagnosed with cholangiocarcinmoa, or bile duct cancer,” Therese said. She added that cholangiocarcinoma is a “very smart
cancer and a very rare cancer.” “Only two in 100,000 are diagnosed a year with bile duct cancer, and it works its way around chemotherapy. When it is disturbed, it spreads,” Therese said. She said Frank had 60 percent of his liver removed on Dec. 26, 2012, and that he went through a microwave ablation procedure that was supposed to burn the cancer. “As far as they knew, they had gotten all the cancer. But this type of cancer is likely to reseed itself, and did,” Therese said. “Where they severed his liver, there must have been microscopic cancer still living under the incision and that reproduced in other places throughout his body. New growth has been found under his skin,” Therese said. Frank went through radiation and chemotherapy treatments from February to April before scheduling another CT scan in April. “After the CT scan in April, the doctors thought all was fine, and he continued chemo until July. After another CT scan in August, more cancer was found. “In retrospect, the doctors actually thought there must have still been cancer present in April, and the chemo treatment used in the summer didn’t attack the cancer,” Therese said. Frank was then sent to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester where he underwent phase one of a clinical study. “He is undergoing palliative care; that concentrates on relieving pain. They are working on stabilizing the tumor or shrinking it, but there is no guarantee, and
there are no more chemo options,” Therese said. “It’s painful. The tumor is growing, and the pain is returning in his shoulder again. The latest treatment he is going through is very new, too. With this new treatment, only six in 59 people have been cured and in 25 out of 59 people, the tumor was able to be stabilized, but for the others, the treatment did nothing. “Like I said, it’s a very smart, rare cancer that is hard to treat. It’s just a matter of time, I guess. But he continues to go to work because that’s what he loves to do,” Therese said. She and Frank currently reside in Sherburne, and they own their own business, Jackson Crop Services. Frank started the business in 1995, and the two sell agriculture chemicals and fertizilers as well as offer custom application. And 100 days to the day of Frank’s diagnosis, Therese, 53, was diagnosed with stage 3 ovarian cancer. “Ovarian cancer really doesn’t have any symptoms until later stages, but I went in for a check up because my bladder was acting up. If Frank hadn’t gone in to the doctor, I might not have gone in either,” Therese said. She saw her primary doctor before seeing a urologist who performed an interuterine ultrasound. “The urologist said I should see a gynecologist who checked me and did a blood test. At first he didn’t tell me he was checking for cancer markers, because I jokingly said, ‘I don’t want to hear the big ‘C’ word.’ I was just kidding, and I was telling him
about what we were going through with Frank, but found out from the lab technicians he was testing for cancer,” Therese said. After that appointment, she was referred to an oncologist. “When you hear you’re going to an oncologist, you know it’s cancer,” she said. The cancer markers in Therese’s blood were reported at 196. “Your CA (cancer antigen) number should be between 0 and 50,” she said. Her ovaries were enlarged, and she said the doctors would not be sure of cancer until surgery. “If I had cancer, I would have had a port inserted into in my abdomen region for chemo. After I woke in recovery from surgery, all Frank said to me was, ‘You have a port’ and I knew it was cancer. But he couldn’t even say the ‘c’ word to me,” Therese said. She was then diagnosed with stage 3 ovarian cancer and started chemotherapy treatments in April. She went through six cycles and had her first “survivor” check-up on Nov. 6. Her cancer markers were down to four. “Chemo is very hard on a person. It’s taking time for both of us to recover. One complication is getting our strength back. And we both suffered from neuropathy, which is tingling in the hands and feet. It’s nerve damage from the chemo,” Therese said. “We appreciate all the support and are overwhelmed by the outpouring of care and concerns from family and friends. Faith, family and friends are what keep us

And we are very thankful for our doctors. “I guess, if there’s a good thing in all of this, it’s that we went through this together. It brought us closer. We’ve been together through better and worse, through richer and poorer, in sickness and in health and now, in life and death. I think we used up every one of our vows,” Therese laughed. Frank is the son of Adeline Hlavka of Silver Lake, and Therese is the daughter of Simon and Dolores Shimanski, also of Silver Lake. The Hlavkas have two children, Tracy (Jed) Hesebeck and Justin (Danielle) Hlavka, and four grandchildren, Andrew, 12, Erik, 9, Isaac, 6, and Olivia, 2, with another on the way, due in June 2014.

GSL Board Upcoming Events
Thanksgiving group meets
There will be a meeting Thursday, Nov. 14, (tonight) at 7 p.m., at the Silver Lake city offices to plan the ninth-annual Thanksgiving dinner. There is as much work leading up to the dinner as there is on Thanksgiving Day, according to Mayor Bruce Bebo. This event takes many volunteers and supporters to put on the freewill dinner, so plan on attending the meeting. Continued from page 1 plans at other schools, but they were looking to us for guidance,” Alsleben added. In other matters, the School Board: • Heard a report from FFA students about attending the National FFA Convention in Louisville, Ky. Representativies Samantha Lange, Maddie Kuehn and Derek Ortloff shared their experiences at the convention and the leadership tools they brought back to the GSL chapter. FFA Adviser Becky Haddad also shared a photo presentation from the trip. • Heard from Sander that the Lincoln building project is “on schedule. Everything is going well over there. We had a meeting last week with the contractors and architects and everything is on schedule.” Sander said the projected end date for the project is still set for the week before Christmas. “Some work will not be done until spring, but we knew that would happen. Items like sod work and additional cement will be completed in the spring, but with the wet fall and colder weather, we knew those things would have to wait,” Sander said. She reported that Jan Mackenthun’s ECFE (Early Childhood Family Education) kids would be taking a tour of the building next week to explore their new classroom. • Approved adding the SuperMileage program as an after-school activity and placed the adviser’s salary on the extra activity schedule, representing a salary of $1,879. • Approved the audit summary and financial statements for the 2012-13 school year as prepared by Kim Hillberg, auditor from CliftonLarsonAllen, LLC. Board member Clark Christianson complimented the GSL office staff for its organization of paperwork and in keeping records. • Approved Mackenthun’s ECFE contract from July 1, 2013, through June 30, 2015. • Revised the definition of “spouse” in the flexible benefits plan to reflect the decision of the U.S. Supreme Court’s definition of “spouse.” The old definition stated: “Spouse means, for purposes of this plan and each underlying benefit available under this plan, an individual who is married, for federal income tax law purposes, to another individual of the opposite sex.” It will be replaced with the new definition: “Spouse means, for purposes of the plan and each underlying benefit available under this plan, an individual who is legally married to a participant (and who is treated as a spouse) as recognized to be legally married under the code.” A roll call vote was taken to adopt the resolution, which was unanimously approved. • Approved overloads for MCA remedial classes for Becky Bartholomay-Suko and Sue Bautch. • Accepted donations from Crow River Sno Pros, $800, to be used for the FFA National Convention; carpet squares from Bergmann’s Interiors for cheerleaders; Silver Lake American Legion Post 141, $500, for “B” band; New Auburn VFW Post 641, $225, for military history class; Plato American Legion Post 641, $500, military history class; Glencoe VFW Post 5102, $500, military history class; Glencoe VFW Post 5102, $100, Jazz Band; and Plato Lions Club, $100, Close-Up.

Maybe I need to adopt some cats
Boy, between the Jeep and unwanted roommates (mice), I shouldn’t have a problem keeping this section chockfull of adventures. As some of you may remember from a previous column, I despise mice, so you can begin to imagine my weekend of catching three of them. The excitement started on Friday night when I returned home from work, threw on a pair of sweats, fell into the comfort of my couch and made a long overdue phone call to my mom. We were still talking up until midnight, when I saw a gray mouse, two feet away, scurry along the trim in my living room. My gut reaction found me jumping on top of the coffee table, dancing around the travel books and empty coffee mugs strewn across the table, shrieking “Ew-ew-ew-ew” with my mom still on the line, laughing. She knows I hate, hate, hate mice, and it took some consoling from her to drop my heart rate. It was about 12:30 a.m. when I started getting tired and wanted to head to my bed ... all the way across my apartment. Now I know it is completely ridiculous for me to be afraid of mice — they are small, harmless creatures who are more afraid of me than I of them, but their stealthy behavior and speedy scurrying send adrenaline through my veins and my pulse through the roof. So with that said, I was having a difficult time convincing myself to leave the comfort of the high coffee table and head through the open living room and kitchen to get to my room. Who knows how many more mice could be lurking in

the corners, ready to scurry across my bare feet as I run into my bedroom? With the comfort of my mom yet on the phone, I jumped down from the coffee table onto the floor and hopped around the living room as if it were hot lava, locking my door and turning my lamps off before sprinting through the kitchen to jump into my safe bed. But then, of course, as I snuggled under the covers, I thought of the mouse running around my apartment with his friends, and I asked my mom if mice crawl around you while you sleep. “I mean, they have to be afraid of giant sleeping bodies, right? They can’t climb up here, can they?” I asked. “You’ve never read ‘Little House on the Prairie,’ have you?” Mom asked. Then she proceeded to tell me how Laura Ingalls Wilder could feel mice chewing her hair in her sleep. Thank you, Mom, for that comforting story. Riddled with the anxiety of such an event happening, I tied my hair tightly into a ponytail and remembered the sonar electronic mouse traps my landlord installed in the Leader office. These devices look like night lights that you plug into outlets, and they apparently emit ultrasonic sound waves that are “too stressful” for rodents, keeping them from entering homes and apartments. So I braved jumping off my bed and hopped through the dark kitchen and living room once more to get to the downstairs Leader office to grab one of the sonar traps. The night was uneventful and to my dismay, there were no mice in either of the wooden Victor traps. But the peanut butter in one trap was missing. Those sneaky jerks! I reapplied peanut butter ever so carefully in the plastic cheese holes of the traps and reset them. On Saturday, I checked each trap when I returned home from work and still nothing. On Sunday morning, however, I was greeted with a limp, gray body in the trap. I “bucked” up, as my Dad would say, disposed of it without fear, and applied a little peanut butter to set it once more. I woke up Monday to the same furry gift and again reset the trap, only to find another mouse in there during my lunch hour at noon. So far, there have been no more sightings, but I’m still on guard. I’ve been spending more time looking at cats to adopt on Hutchinson’s humane society website. Seven dead mice in my apartment within the last two years has got to be a good enough excuse to convince my landlord to let me get a cat, right?

Tracing Roots
By Ron Pulkrabek
Continuing walk about town
Editor’s Note: Ron Pulkrabek wrote his first series of columns looking through the eyes of someone coming to Silver Lake in the 1930s and what it would have looked like then. He continues this week walking down the streets in Silver Lake. Continuing south down the street: on the corner is a large, neat three-story building housing Frank Nuwash’s Furniture Store and undertaker. Upstairs is a dance hall. Across the street is the Silver Lake Brewery built by Wencel Chalupsky, which at one time was doing very well, filling wagon loads with wooden keg beer and bottles. The Prohibition Act of 1920 caused it to close down. Although 12 years later the Prohibition Act was repealed, it was too much for the company and it now stands idle. Just this year on April 1, 1933, Silver Lake citizens, 116 to 42, voted to repeal the act and approved selling liquors. Fifty-two women voted. It didn’t take long for the saloons to get into fulltime business. Happy days are here again! Now liquor can be bought legally! A closed-down flour mill started by Anton Dlouhy and John Totusek also was in the area. It was three stories high with a large engine that once supplied electricity to the town of Silver Lake. Across the street from Nuwash’s stands the City Hotel built by J.B. Jerabek. It is more or less used as a boarding hotel. Up the street and across the alley is Dr. Trutna’s office and Hawlish’s Drug Store. The drug store has Christmas cards on sale from 1 cent to 5 cents. It will cost you 3 cents to mail them. A penny post card is 1 cent. People tell me Dr. Trutna is a good doctor, but has dull needles and skimps on the Novocain, which causes temporary excessive pain when sewing up minor cuts. Dr. and Mrs. Trutna have opened their house for people to come to see their gigantic Biblical scenes. Dr. Trutna has hand-fashioned scenes of Bethlehem and Jerusalem during Jesus’ time. On the corner is the Citizens State Bank of Silver Lake. It was originally called the Citizens Bank, but closed down in 1919 with the depositors losing most of their money. But it reopened under new management and a new name a few months later. Irvin Burich is now the bookkeeper, receiving $70 a month. He said in 1903, the bank was looted. The 18-inch thick vault was blasted open with nitroglycerin, and the thieves escaped with $2,226. Some people heard a slight muffle in the early morning, but didn’t think much of it. The thieves were never caught. The bank is closed over the noon hour. A few stores west of the bank is John Svanda’s Hardware Store. It is packed with all the hard-to-find items. Looking for a rubber washer for a Hudson hand sprayer? John will open a big drawer, which has little drawers in it, and way back in one of the boxes he has various rubber washers. One is sure to fit. This summer he had fly spray on sale at 45 cents per gallon. A few stores farther to the west is Mimm’s Tavern and next door is Joseph Filipi’s Tavern or “Narodina Hostinec” (Family Liquor Store). On past occasions Joe has run out of the door with a 5-cent glass of beer to give to a thirsty patron who drank it while sitting on a load of wheat attending his horses. He will sell beer by the gallon or in four-gallon wooden pony kegs, especially suitable for farmers during threshing. Next is the gigantic, modernly architected and designed, solid brick, City Hall, including a bell tower. An opera house-like theater upstairs with fancy stage curtains seats 400. Local actors perform theatricals to full houses very often. Admission is 10 cents. Concerts, lectures, magic acts and silent movies also are performed here with between-acts orchestras consisting of W.O. Merrill, Jim Ziska and Bernie Stibal. Just this summer, The Merchants Players performed every Monday night for 10 weeks. They will close with “Girl from Denver.” The Dawson Players continued in future weeks to record crowds with “She Devil,” a three-act comedy. The fire hall is on the ground floor, and there is a seldom-used small jail in the south corner. The water tower is just south of the City Hall. A new seven-inch diameter well was drilled this year. They hit an excellent vein at 137 feet. Martin Matousek’s blacksmith shop is just to the south. Martin will sharpen and put new points on your plow shares for 50 cents. Just to the south is the Czech Congregational Church of Silver Lake. This solid church was built in 1910 with specifications that the basement walls must be 8½ feet high and two feet thick, have a belfry, that the auditorium floor be level (not slanted) and the church wired for electricity. The parishioners keep close ties to the old country of Czechoslovakia by taking up collections for the Czech parishes and people over there. Services in English just started in 1928. To be continued…

Just too many big plays
St. Croix Lutheran scores 4 TDs from 50 yards or longer vs. GSL
By Josh Randt Sports Editor It all came to a screeching halt Friday night when the Glencoe-Silver Lake Panthers ran into a tough Crusader team from St. Croix Lutheran (SCL). GSL came up short and found itself on the losing end of a 38-35 nail-biter at Macalester College in St. Paul, despite totaling 451 yards of offense. In the end, it was SCL’s big plays that kept the Panthers reeling for the majority of the game. Of the five touchdowns the Crusaders scored, all but one came from 50 yards or longer, including the first play of the game, which saw SCL quarterback David Ponath connect with Aaron Zoellner for an 80yard touchdown to give the Crusaders a 7-0 lead just 17 seconds into the game. GSL never led, but managed to tie it briefly at 7-7 in the first quarter. “They just plain out-played us fair and square,” captain Keenan Mehlos said of his defense’s performance after the game. “We missed some tackles, missed some assignments and that cost us the game.” The Panthers were without defensive captain Carter Pinske at linebacker, who sat out with a deep thigh bruise while sophomore Dylan Melchert filled his position. Melchert was the one who got beat on the first play of the game, but head coach Scott Tschimperle didn’t get down on the sophomore. “That hurt, taking a twoyear starter at linebacker out of there, but we’ve had injuries stomach like Clouse had punished opposing defenses all season long. Tears flowed. Seniors hugged one another and tried to cherish the final remaining moments of their high school football careers. “I’m going to miss everybody,” Clouse said. “I’m going to miss my running back behind me, Jake Stuedemann. I’m going to miss Keenan and everyone on defense. This isn’t how I wanted to end it.” “You’ll honestly never find a better group of guys,” Stuedemann added. “I just can’t say enough about these seniors and the leadership they gave,” Tschimperle said. “They were always at full tilt, and that’s what I’ll remember most. That’s also what I feel bad about, is how hard they worked and we didn’t get to go where we wanted to go. It’s tough for the kids, but that’s adversity. You grow as a man, as a player, and as a team member and a coach, and you learn from mistakes. That’s why we play sports.” *** GSL is the only Wright County Conference team to lose so far in the state tournament this year. St. Croix Lutheran now faces the 9-2 Proctor Rails in the semifinal round of the Class AAA state tournament. New London-Spicer, who GSL beat 42-25 during the regular season, defeated Dilworth-Glyndon-Felton 56-30 at St. Cloud State University on Saturday, Nov. 9, and now match up with Rochester Lourdes in the other Class AAA semifinal game at the Metrodome. In Class AAAA, a rematch between Delano and Hutchinson highlights the semifinal round on Friday, Nov. 15, while DeLaSalle and Academy of Holy Angels square off the following Saturday on the other side of the bracket. Hutch defeated South St. Paul 48-28 on Nov. 7, while Delano beat up Cloquet 61-33 on Nov. 8. Hutch won the regular season contest between the two on Oct. 4, 30-14, which marks the only blemish on Delano’s record.

The Glencoe-Silver Lake Panther football team’s season came to an end Friday night when they lost 38-35 to the St. Croix Lutheran Crusaders. Dalton Clouse is all year,” Tschimperle said. “We’ve had to have guys step up and make plays. Other than that one play, I thought Dylan played well.” Though GSL racked up 451 yards of total offense, every time the Panthers seemed to gain ground on SCL, the Crusaders made a big play offensively, or stopped GSL with their man defense. “(They did) nothing really special (defensively),” captain Dalton Clouse said of the offense. “We just killed ourselves.” “They just knew who to shut down,” fellow halfback and

Down 31-28 with three minutes remaining in the fourth quarter, the Panthers forced SCL into a fourth-and-one from its own 30-yard line. Ponath faked to the running back up the middle and took it himself around the end while beginning to stumble. The big right-hander regained his balance and barely made it around the end of the GSL defensive line, where he got loose and took off on a 70yard score that put SCL back up by 10 with just under three minutes remaining. “We had the right call on and the right defensive scheme, we just didn’t execute it the right way,” Tschimperle said of the fourth-down play. “I can live with the first down, but there’s no way he should go 70 yards for a touchdown.” GSL managed to score once more, but could not recover the onside kick and only had one timeout to use before Ponath knelt out the clock. Once the final seconds ran off the clock at Macalester, the realization that the season was over hit the players in the

captain Jake Stuedemann said. “They put two guys on the best players on each side.” While Tschimperle’s offense moved the ball about how he expected, what he did not anticipate was the Crusaders’ ability to score throughout the entire game. “Going into the game we knew they were good,” Tschimperle said. “But I never dreamed they would score 38 points against us. I’m more disappointed about the big plays ... Whenever you give up the big play, it’s going to come back and haunt you.” And haunt the Panthers it

GSL’s ‘Footloose’ opens tonight (Nov. 14)
Weather Corner
By Jake Yurek
A very cold start to the week gives way to more normal mid-November weather as we move toward the middle of the week. A strong blast of early Arctic air arrived Monday, accompanied by some cold wind and our first real bout of wind chills. The blast should be short-lived as we head back towards the normal 40s we should be seeing this time of year. Highs to end the week should be in the mid to upper 40s, depending on how quickly we can get the cold pool to exit the area. Highs for the weekend may make a run at 50, but it may be a long shot to get the coldest air out that quickly. Precipitation this week will be limited as we are stuck in a mainly northwest flow. This type of flow lacks the deep moisture needed for systems to tap into to give us anything more than passing showers from time to time. The best chance of a rain or snow shower will be late Friday into Saturday and again Sunday. As I said, these are clippertype, moisture-starved systems, so I’m not expecting much. Taking a look at the extended shows a very large low pressure system over northern Canada and a large high pressure ridge to our west. This equates to northwest flow for us, so normal to below-normal temperatures with no big life-changing storm on the horizon. Ma dobry weekendem Mit dobry vikend Wednesday night — Lows 26-32; clouds. Thursday — Highs 40-47; lows 27-33; partly cloudy. Friday — Highs 41-48; lows 31-37; mostly clear/partly cloudy. Saturday — Highs 42-50; lows 33-40; partly cloudy/rain or snow shower. Sunday — Highs 43-51; clouds/rain shower. Weather Quiz: What did the final snowfall totals look like for our first real snow of the year last week? Answer to last week’s question: How much snow will we see this year? I’m thinking our early-season snow was just a trick. Not sure why, but I’m thinking this year will be a slow year in snowfall. So, in other words, since I said that, I’m sure it’ll be a record year (sorry)! Remember: I make the forecast, not the weather! Glencoe-Silver Lake High School will present the musical “Footloose,” opening on Nov. 14. The musical, based on the movie starring Kevin Bacon, will be presented by GSL High School during the next two weekends. The students, under the direction of Patrick Hiltner, have been rehearsing since the beginning of September and are excited for the production. “Footloose” is based around Ren McCormack who moves to Bomont from Chicago with his mother, Ethel. When they reach the small town community of Bomont, they find out that the city has many rules that have been instituted by the town council and the Rev. Moore. Many of these laws were formed due to a serious accident that affected the entire community. One of these laws is that dancing has been outlawed. Many of the teenagers of the community start to follow Ren, and they want to have a dance much to the disapproval of the reverend and other adults in the community. Also see how the laws in the community affect the reverend and his family as his daughter, Ariel, breaks many of the rules which also affects the relationship of the reverend and his wife, Vi. The story that evolves includes the struggles of a community trying to heal from wounds that have been covered up for many years. The cast, crew, and pit band includes 46 students in grades 7-12.

*This will affect the amount of property tax you pay in 2014, and it may affect your eligibility for a property tax refund.
Please contact your county assessor to file a homestead application on or before December 15, 2013, if one of the following applies: • You purchased a property in the past year and you, or a qualifying relative, occupy the property for homestead purposes on December 1, 2013; or • You, or a qualifying relative occupy a property for homestead purposes on December 1, 2013, and the property was previously classified as non-homestead. A qualifying relative for homestead purposes depends on the type of property. For residential property, a qualifying relative can be a parent, stepparent, child, stepchild, grandparent, grandchild, brother, sister, uncle, aunt, nephew, or niece of the owner. This relationship may be by blood or marriage. For agricultural property, a qualifying relative can be a child, grandchild, sibling, or parent of the owner or a child, grandchild, or sibling of the spouse of the owner. Once you have been granted the homestead classification, no further applications are necessary unless they are specifically requested by the county assessor. You must also contact the assessor by December 15, 2013, if you are the property owner, or a qualifying relative of the property owner, and the use of the property has changed during the past year. If you should sell, move, or for any reason no longer qualify for the homestead classification, you are required to notify the county assessor within 30 days of the change in homestead status. Failure to notify the county assessor within this 30-day period is punishable by recalculation of tax as non-homestead, in addition to a penalty equal to 100 percent of the homestead benefits.
