Board hears results of facility listening sessions
By Karin Ramige Cornwell Manager The Sibley East School Board heard the results of community group listening sessions that were held during the month of September. The purpose of the listening sessions was to gather community thoughts on the district’s facility issues. The sessions were held by Preston Euerle, Owner and CEO of RA Morton, the firm the district has been working with for pre-referendum facilitation services. Sessions were held with the Green Isle Lions, Arlington Chamber, Gaylord Rotary and Gaylord Sertoma. Euerle complied the comments expressed during the sessions, though stressed that the statements are not intented to present a consensus from the district residents and community representatives. There were four main areas discussed during the listening sessions: district-wide thoughts, geographical thoughts, physical, and educational. The board heard the comments for each of the respected areas. The district-wide thoughts and comments included: • “Sibley East is a good educational system and students are getting a good education. Class sizes are good. • “If improvements aren’t made, the district could dissolve like McLeod West schools. • “The district should have taken advantage of the $8 million state grant. (Referring to the $8 million grant to build a new school in the early 1988.) • “Much of the communities understanding of the last referendum came from hearsay. Information should have been distributed to smaller groups, (i.e senior groups, townships, service groups, etc.) • “Enrollment is down so why is there a need for more space? • “Farmers were asked to carry the new tax burden. • “Felt there was a lack of direction from the school board. • “Teachers should be paid for performance. • “The bond was administration, not community driven. • “There was too much involvement from staff on the last steering committee which flawed the process. • “The district should be spending more money on maintenance or buses rather than on iPads.” Euerle added there was a general consensus that action on the facilities needs to be taken, but there was disagreement on whether to build a new facility or if remodeling the existing facilities would be best.

SMC adds Urgent Care
By Kurt Menk Editor The Sibley Medical Center (SMC) has now added Urgent Care to the list of services that it provides to the communities, according to SMC Administrator Todd Sanberg. Urgent Care, he added, will compliment the SMC Emergency Room services in providing quick and affordable care. “This new service is a direct result of our new mission, vision and values, part of which states we will do the right thing for those we serve,” said Sandberg. “By providing Urgent Care services we believe this aligns with this value, as it offers an important service close to home at a more affordable price.” The services provided by Urgent Care include, but are not limited to, treating minor illnesses such as colds and coughs and infections such as strep throat, bladder infections, sinus infections, skin infections just to name a few. It also includes injuries including strains, sprains and minor fractures, lacerations and burns. According to Sandberg, more and more insurance companies are recommending Urgent Care services for their patients who have non-life threatening conditions. “We will be accepting most insurance plans and generally speaking the co-pay for being seen is usually less than being seen in the Emergency Room,” Sandberg said. “We are excited because SMC will be the only Urgent Care in Sibley County and our service area, available seven days a week, to offer this service to our customers,” said Cindy Dikmen, RN, CEN - Director of Nursing. “This will allow those we serve to get Urgent Care services for minor illnesses or injuries close to home without incurring emergency room charge.” The hours for Urgent Care, which include holidays, will be 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday; and noon to 8 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
American Education Banquet is a big hit
By Kurt Menk Editor Over 400 students and adults attended the fourth annual Sibley East American Education Banquet at the Arlington Community Center on Monday night, Nov. 19. The highlight of the evening was the induction of three individuals into the Sibley East Wall of Fame. The three individuals included Dan Seeman, Thomas G. McCarthy and Stephen John Carlson. These three individuals were nominated based on their commitments to education through their lifetime and/or graduated from a high school in the school district and used that education as a springboard to success. High School in 1979. In high school, Dan was active in speech, theatre and sports. Early in high school, he lettered in track and cross country, but his real love was speech and theatre. Dan participated in every fall, spring and one-act play during his four years in high school. In his senior year, Dan was chosen to represent A-GI in the state speech competition. Dan graduated from the University of Minnesota with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Communications in 1984. For over 30 years, Dan has worked in the broadcast business in Minneapolis and St. Paul. He is truly one of the leaders in the radio industry and is currently the vice president/market manager for Hubbard Radio.

CapX 2020 project will pay Sibley County to move a mile of road
By Dave Pedersen Correspondent Getting a little off line resulted in the CapX2020 transmission power line project being out of line and workers no longer on the line in Sibley County. Sibley County Public Works Director Darin Mielke told the board of commissioners at the Nov. 13 meeting that he issued a stop work order to Great River Energy regarding work on county highway right of ways. Mielke discovered that six power pole foundations were set in the right of way on a mile stretch of County Road 164 to the north side of Silver Lake. Some foundations are actually in the ditch usable for drainage purposes. CapX 2020 project managers Dan Lesher and Mark Anderson recently met with Mielke to come up with a workable solution. They continued the conversation at the board meeting later in the morning. “We talked about rather than them spend a lot of effort and money on relocating their poles, how we can possibly shift our roadway to the south about eight to 10 feet,” said Mielke about the gravel road. Mielke recommends the county get reimbursed $300,000 to move a mile of County Road 164. The second part is with the overhang of the power lines. He said at a minimum the power company should apply for a public utility permit. “That way if we were to do any road work in that area they would have to relocate at no cost to Sibley County,” added Mielke regarding if the county needed to add street lights or box culverts for example. County Commissioner Harold Pettis asked if the estimated cost includes purchase of private land to move the road. Mielke said he had not added that in the estimate. Lesher said they would cover all costs involved. Sibley County Attorney David Schauer recommended the board reach a consensus and then ask Mielke to do a formal settlement agreement, bringing it back for approval. He will also do a ball park design and cost estimate. County Commissioner Bill Pinske said if it costs $400,000 then that’s what it costs. Pettis said the county can drop the stop work order as long as it knows there will be a settlement. Pinske added, “It is a gentleman’s agreement that the taxpayers are not to pay for anything for your mistake.” As for how this happened, Mielke said the county does not have a recorded right of way for that stretch of road. Then it reverts to what is the actual maintained right of ways. “Great River Energy assumed we had a 30-foot right of way based on the section line,” said Mielke. “Their poles are about 10 feet too close to the road.” County Commissioner Jim Swanson said some issues with the poles came up back in January and wondered why this was not taken care of nine months ago. Anderson said the company did respond to Sibley County Engineer Tim Becker’s e-mail with survey coordinates as well as re-verification of the records of the section line. “We did a bench check but we didn’t do a field check,” said Anderson about how the poles got off track. “We understand we made a mistake. Of the 70 to 80 miles in the county here there is one mile in question. This is not a wide spread practice, but we apologize and are here to make that right.” Anderson said the company is neutral whether it reimburses the county to relocate the road or pay to move the structures, which would cost about the same. “We should have questioned the foundation locations along 164, but we missed it” said Lesher. “We have to pay for it and we understand those consequences.” Commissioners were not done with the power line rep-

Volunteers always needed at new Sibley County FoodShare
Sibley County FoodShare volunteers Diane Ebersviller, Ann Carlson and Ruth Ann Buck, all of Arlington, were recently busy stocking shelves at the new Sibley County Food Shelf which is located at 111 Industrial Avenue South in Gaylord. They are most appreciative of the new space in the customer service area as well as the space in the warehouse area. The decision to move to a larger building was made necesssary by the continued increase in food shelf usage and the shortage of space in which to store enough food to meet the monthly needs. The new food shelf was made possible by the purchase of the present building by Sibley County. The labor to remodel the site was donated by Apostolic Christian World Mission Relief, Messner Builders and Vos Construction in addition to many other volunteers from the area. Furthermore, there were donations of furnishings and a new commercial cooler. Volunteers and school students moved the food shelf from its previous location at 11 South Fifth Street to the present site this past April. “It is so much easier for volunteers to fill shelves as they can stock shelves from the back at the same time people are shopping for food,” said Sibley County FoodShare Coordinator Una Risk. “Because of increased space, it is also easier for volunteers as food can now be placed on the shelves in case lots rather than by the can as was the situation in the old food shelf.” The Sibley Couny FoodShare exists through donations from caring individuals, churches, organizations, schools, businesses and grants. In 2011, through the generosity of people, the Sibley County FoodShare was able to provide 97,080 meals for the hungry people in the area. People who wish to support the food shelf may bring donations to the facility from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. Mondays, 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. Wednesdays or 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. on the first and third Fridays. Cash donations may be dropped off, sent by mail or electronically donated through giveMN.org. Looking for a great place to volunteer? Volunteers are always needed to help at the food shelf. Interested volunteers can call the food shelf at 507-237-5253 or food shelf board member Dave Czech in Arlington.

Governor Mark Dayton is critical of seat licenses for new Vikings stadium
Our View: Seat licenses were part of the bill he signed into law last May
Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton, last week, sent a letter to Minnesota Vikings owners Mark and Zygi Wilf and warned them against charging season ticket holders for personal seat licenses to help fund the team’s portion of construction costs for the new football stadium. “I strongly oppose shifting any part of the team’s responsibility for those costs on to Minnesota Vikings fans,” Governor Dayton wrote in the letter. “This private contribution is your responsibility, not theirs.” The governor also threatened to dismantle the entire stadium deal if the team pursued this endeavor. His comments make complete sense. The only problem is Governor Dayton should have made these comments during negotiations and before he signed the bill for the new football stadium seven months ago. Language in the bill allows for the sale of stadium builder’s licenses otherwise known as personal seat licenses. Governor Dayton should understand the full details before he signs a bill into law, especially a bill which commits hundreds of millions of public dollars. However, that is what happens when negotiations are held behind closed doors and a decision is made at the 11th hour. The Minnesota Vikings, who have to cover just less than half of the nearly $1 billion cost, may have engineered their greatest drive in team history and it did not even occur on the football field. The team will receive a majority of their contribution from the National Football League, naming rights to the new stadium and personal seat licenses. Season ticket holders and taxpayers, on the other hand, do not have that luxury and will have to dig into their wallets for their contribution. Governor Dayton and all elected officials who supported the new football stadium should have stood up for season ticket holders and all taxpayers during negotiations and before the final bill was signed into law last May. It’s too late to complain now. -K.M.
Guest Column
It’s the economy, according to Krinkie
By Phil Krinkie Month after month we heard a constant refrain from candidates and political pundits alike that this election was going to be all about the economy. The monthly unemployment numbers and the jobs report became major news stories. The historical fact that no incumbent since President Franklin Roosevelt had won re-election with a nationwide unemployment rate above 8 percent was repeated over and over again. The now famous words of James Carville, campaign manager/consultant for Bill Clinton in 1992, “It’s the economy stupid” rang out like a warning siren at a railroad crossing. At every campaign stop across this country, most of the political speeches were about the economy. From Governor Romney, the message was his private sector entrepreneurial experience and his accomplishments as a governor would help lead the country to stronger economic growth. President Obama pounded away on the message that he was responsible for slow, yet steady economic recovery from our deep recession. These two campaign themes were repeated and repeated and by November most voters were very familiar with their campaign themes. As the pollsters and political commentators examine the election results a different story comes to light. The broad economic picture may not have been the real key to the election after all. The vote tally reveals an electorate focused on the economy from a personal perspective rather than from a federal budget view point. One example is from the battle ground state of Ohio, where there was broad support for Obama among the auto workers. The federal bailout of the auto industry (excluding of course Ford Motor Company) led many who are employed directly or indirectly in the auto industry particularly in Ohio and Michigan to favor President Obama. This bailout was mentioned repeatedly in the campaign by the Obama team, never wanting a potential voter to forget their dependence on a government bailout. Next consider the significant block of voters coming from the ranks of federal, state and municipal government employees. While there are no exit polls showing how government workers voted, there would be little doubt that they supported the re-election of Obama in large numbers. Also included in voters concerned about “their” economy were college students. Here again, students supported Obama in large numbers in part because of his repeated stated support to expand student loans and to place limits on the amount of required loan repayments. And of course, perhaps the largest block of voters concerned about “their” economic situation were the millions of Americans receiving some type of financial support or benefit from the federal government. These of course include food stamps, housing supports and Medical Assistance to name just a few. Again, President Obama likely won the vast majority of support from these voters based on a belief that Obama would protect “their” economic programs and that a Romney Administration would potentially reduce or change some of these social welfare programs. And last but not least, there were of course senior voters, those over the age of 65 who receive Medicare benefits. The 2012 election similar to some previous elections saw once again the Democrats using the “Mediscare” tactic to win over senior voters. Whether it was the Democrats’ previously produced television commercial using a Congressman Paul Ryan look alike pushing an elderly woman in a wheel chair off a cliff, or this year’s scare tactic that under the Ryan plan seniors would pay $6,400 a year more for Medicare, the intent is always the same. Round up more votes on the Medicare issue allowing people to believe that nothing in the program needs to change. On the other side of the “it’s the economy” debate there were millions of Americans who voted for the Romney-Ryan ticket because of their belief that another four years of Obama would result in major Federal tax increases. This group included small business owners as well as “personal pocketbook” voters and many high income earning Americans. There is no doubt that the economy played a key role in the outcome of the Presidential election. But the focus wasn’t on the national economy with our $16 trillion in national debt or the fact that we currently borrow 40 cents of every dollar of federal spending. The need for entitlements with the Medicare program going broke and the Social Security fund headed for bankruptcy, made for good stump speeches for Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan in the short term, but had little impact on voters. But the simple reality is that when the majority of Americans cast their ballots it was for the candidate that they believed would do the most to protect their individual economic situation. Are people concerned about the economic direction of the country? Yes, but human nature is a much stronger force. It propels each of us to be concerned for our own economic interests first and our country’s economic woes second. The result is the re-election of the status quo. Instead of a willingness to take a chance that Mitt Romney might have been able to actually produce a more vibrant economy in the future. Fear won out over reason, and we will likely have a smaller less robust economy as the result.

So, the dealer telephoned Deacon Brown to ask why. “I’ll tell you why,” said Deacon Brown. “Our church ordered some pencils from you to be used in the pews for visitors to register.” “Well,” interrupted the dealer, “didn’t you receive them on time?” “Oh, we received them all right,” replied Deacon Brown. “However, you sent us pencils intended for the golf course each stamped with the words ‘Play Golf Next Sunday.’” ***** It was a particularly tough football game and nerves were on edge. The home team had been the victim of three or four close calls by the officials, and they were now trailing the visitors by a touchdown and a field goal. When the official made yet another close call in the visitors’ favor, the home quarterback blew his top. “How many times can you do this to us in a single game?” he screamed. “You were wrong on the out-ofbounds, you were wrong on that last first down, and you missed a clip in the first quarter.” The official just stared. The quarterback seethed, but he suppressed the language that might get him tossed from the game. “What it comes down to,” he bellowed, “is that you stink!” The official stared a few more seconds. Then he bent down, picked up the ball, paced off 15 yards, and put the ball down. He turned to face the steaming quarterback. “And how do I smell from here?” ***** A redhead, brunette and blonde were on their way to Heaven. God told them the stairway to Heaven was 1,000 steps, and on every fifth step He’d tell them a joke. But, they must not laugh or else they couldn’t enter Heaven. The brunette went first and started laughing on the 65th step, so she could not enter Heaven. The redhead went next and started laughing on the 320th step, so she could not enter Heaven either. Then, it was the blonde’s turn. When she got to the 999th step, she started laughing. “Why are you laughing?” God asked. “I didn’t tell a joke.” “I know,” the blonde replied. “I just got the first one.” *****

November 20, 1924 Louis Kill, Editor John H. Henschke, well known and popular merchant and baseball player-manager of our city, was united in marriage with Miss Cecelia Minkiewitz Wednesday morning. The ceremony was performed by Rev. Father Schlechter at the parsonage of St. Mary’s Church at 9 o’clock. A wedding breakfast was served at the Minkiewitz home after the ceremony. Noack’s poultry plant is an unusually busy place these days. The cold spell has been instrumental in bringing the poultry to market and chickens are coming in by the carload. All available space at the plant is being utilized to store the poultry. They have room for more than 30,000 birds at the plant but even this capacity is exceeded at the present time. Justice court has been quite busy in our city during the week. A number of cases in which defendants were charged with being drunk and disorderly were heard. Fines were imposed and sentence suspended in these cases provided that the evil doers would behave themselves in the future. The authorities are making every effort to get sufficient evidence to convict the suspected venders of the illicit liquor and the offenders are promised a stiff penalty.

A stopper was blown out of the chimney in the living room and soot scattered over the furniture and furnishings. The radio was also put out of commission and several members of the family momentarily stunned by the bolt. At the Enterprise office the linotype was put out of commission by a bolt which evidently followed the power line into the building. One of the elements on the electric pot was burned out. Much of the type for this issue was set in the Hub office in Gaylord.

November 16, 1944 Louis Kill, Editor Last week Mr. and Mrs. Frank H. Groetsch of Green Isle received a letter from their son, Peter, telling of his harrowing experience when their plane, which was on a bombing mission over Germany, was shot down. One engine and the gas line being shot away, they got across the enemy line into Yugoslavia when they parachuted to earth. All the crew were saved due to the help and protection of the Yugoslavian patriots. Peter received a bruised heel in landing. They were missing 12 days during which time they had scarcely any sleep.

Capital campaign projects enhance residents’ lives now and in the future
The Good Samaritan Society - Arlington has completed phase one of its capital campaign renovation project. Residents and families are seeing many improvements including freshly painted walls, new flooring, carpet, wallpaper and wall hangings. There has been generous support for the $600,000 renovation and $75,000 is still needed to reach the $201,000 fundraising goal for phase two. The second phase of the project includes renovating seven resident rooms to include upgraded bathrooms. Having the rooms configured with new bathrooms provides for residents’ personal needs and dignity. It also better utilizes space and access for residents and caregivers. “Upgrades to our center are necessary to maintain and enhance our commitment to current residents while preparing for future residents,” said Administrator Gerry Berglin. “The community’s generous support is needed to make this vision a reality.” The Evangelical Lutheran Good Samaritan Society is the nation’s largest not-forprofit provider of senior care and services, with more than 240 long-term healthcare centers and senior living communities across the country, including the Good Samaritan Center - Arlington. The Good Samaritan Society’s mission is to share God’s love in word and deed by providing shelter and supportive services to older persons and others in need, believing that “In Christ’s Love, Everyone is Someone.”

resentatives. They questioned why the current plan is different than what was presented to the county three years ago. Plus, they wondered about the power lines hanging over traffic lanes. Pettis was concerned the wires would still be hanging over the road with traffic because they have some big cross arms that are about 1825 feet from the center of the pole each way. Anderson said they followed the Minnesota State Department of Transportation (MnDOT) permit process. The power company also goes by a safety code that provides for a minimum of 27 feet over road crossings and they are higher than that. Pettis also said he was here when project managers came the first time around to explain what was going to happen. “At that time we were told at a public hearing in Winthrop that it was going to be a single pole with three wires to the back side of the pole,” said Pettis. “Maybe in the future they would have to come back and add more wires. There was no mention of cross arms.” “Now there are six wires, three doubles on each side for a total of 12 cables plus two grounding wires,” continued Pettis. “When they put the first pole up, what we were seeing isn’t what we were told three years ago.” Lesher said that very early on the Brookings project was initially considered a single circuit project with three wires. “What happened as the years went by and research went on, it was determined that for future expansion and need of getting wind generation from Buffalo Ridge it was decided to build a double circuit cable from the outset of construction in some cases, this being one of them,” said Lesher. “So, everything was permitted to be three wires on each side.” After the CapX representatives left, the discussion continued. Mielke said this issue was obvious and that it would have taken a phone call before they put in the poles. As for the history of the project, CapX 2020 filed a certificate of need application with the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission (MPUC) in 2007 for a 345kV transmission line from Brookings County, South Dakota to Hampton, Minnesota. That application was approved in 2009, determining the project is needed to deliver renewable energy and meet electric reliability in Minnesota. During that regulatory review, CapX 2020 conducted several open houses to identify where the appropriate route for the new line would be located. Beginning near the Cedar Mountain Substation in Renville County, the project kicked off last spring with the drilling and pouring of foundations along the project route. In the summer crews began erecting the single pole structures and are stringing the wire along the towers. The line is scheduled to be engaged in July of 2013.

Secret recipes of stirring up a perfect Thanksgiving feast
Editor’s Note: The following recipes were created from the children at Chris Pichelmann’s daycare. I’m gonna walk the turkey and catch him with a net. Then Tyler will take a knife and cut his feathers off and I will put him in a huge bowl. You put salt and ketchup on it and put it in the stove that is up high in my house. Chris, yours is down low, but mine is up high. I don’t know why that it is up high. It will be really hot and it will be done in seventeen fifty. My boys will eat it all up in six minutes! I will eat chicken nuggets and an apple. Jenna Bates, age 3 It’s going to be a wild one and my dad is going to shoot it! My mom will cook it in the oven for three hours and we will have to pull the feathers out first. Mom will know it is done when the timer goes off. We will also have some corn, peas, beans and beef. Jack Feterl, age 6 First, you gotta catch a turkey! You have a gun and you shoot it. Or you have a dog that could kill it! That would not be good because it would eat your turkey. You cut the feathers off with a knife. But, children cannot use it because it will be very sharp! Leave the head on and put it into a mixer so it don’t taste really bad. You cook it on the stove in a pan and put some sugar and peanuts on it if you want to. You count to three and you see if it’s done. You know it’s done when you hear the beeper. You have to get lots of turkeys so everyone can have some. It takes one turkey for the Feterls! My dad loves turkey and he will eat the most. Will Feterl, age 4 You catch a turkey and you hold it in your hand. Mine will be a little pink and purple turkey. I will hold it in my hands. My mommy will make it and Willie will eat it all. I will eat M&Ms and marshmallows with it. Ellie Feterl, age 2 First, you gotta shoot the turkey with a gun. I have a brown gun and bullets. But, my dad will shoot it, because my brown gun doesn’t work on turkeys, just deer. You pull the feathers out with your fingers. Then you put salt on it. Nothing else, JUST salt! Mom will put it in the oven for three minutes. We will have corn and potatoes with it. Carter Podratz, age 3 She is holding a beanie baby turkey and squeezing it. She named her Bella.

Sibley East girls basketball team returns 9 letterwinners this year
By Kurt Menk Editor The Sibley East varsity girls basketball team, which began practice on Monday, Nov. 12, returns nine letterwinners from last year’s outfit which compiled a 2-12 mark in the Minnesota River Conference and a 7-17 record overall. The returning letterwinners consist of seniors Briana Reierson, Courtney Schwirtz and Jordan Thomes; juniors Megan Eckberg, Jessica Garza, Kimberly Kurtzweg and Maren Miner; and sophomores Kelli Martens and McKenzie Sommers. Thomes is a two-year starter while Eckberg and Garza started last year. The remaining juniors are Alicia Kranz, Britany Reierson and Hayley Riebe. The remaining sophomores are Autumn Dose, Lea Mueller, Mikayla Perschau, Karissa Sorenson, Liz Thies, Shelby Voight and Breann Walsh. The three freshmen are McKayla Stumm, Katie Tuchtenhagen and Alyssa Weber. “We are looking forward to a fun and exciting season this year,” said Sibley East head coach Doug Flieth. “We lost some scorers from last year (Lauren Highland and Megan Bennett) and need to try and replace them. We are returning three starters back for this year's girls basketball team and all three are working hard to keep their starting job.” Flieth continued, “ I've told the girls that competition is a great thing and will make everyone better. There are a couple of younger girls that have put in many hours to improve their game and it shows. Right now we have 10 to12 girls who are going to be fighting for some varsity time.” Flieth said the Lady Wolverines scrimmaged New Ulm, New Ulm Catherdral, MVL and NRHEG this past Saturday. “We played all right at times, but know we have a long way to go,” said Flieth, who is assisted by B-squad coach Chip Wolverton. “We found a few areas that we still need some work.” Flieth continued, “ We will again rely on our press to try and create some turnovers for us and lead to easy baskets. We finally have some size inside and will look to get the ball into our posts and also try to control most of the rebounds.” Sibley East will open its season against visiting G-F-W in non-conference action at 7:30 p.m. Monday, Nov. 26.
DNR encourages all Minnesotans to hit the trails during Thanksgiving weekend
From trails along the coast of Lake Superior to routes through hardwood forests and over prairie knolls, Minnesota offers abundant hiking opportunities for all ages and abilities. This fall, Minnesota State Parks Director Courtland Nelson encourages families to get outdoors to enjoy the state’s parks and trails, and to take a hike over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. “There are a number of benefits to hiking this Thanksgiving,” said Nelson. “It’s less expensive and not as crowded as going shopping and you can walk off Thanksgiving dinner alongside friends and family. Plus, now that the leaves have fallen from the trees it’s easier to see wildlife like birds and deer.” Ranked the “Best Trails

Bethlehem Express set for Dec. 1
As part of the Arli-Dazzle festivities on Dec. 1, St. Paul’s Lutheran Church will once again be transformed into a train depot where the Bethlehem Express will take passengers on a journey to Bethlehem to learn the true meaning of Christmas. Similar to last year, visitors will receive a free ticket at the depot to board the train. A conductor will guide groups of passengers from stop to stop through the church. The stops will be the same as last year: listening to the choir sing, making a craft, and enjoying refreshments, but the elements at each stop have changed to make this year’s Bethlehem Express a unique experience for new passengers as well as returning ones. The train makes its final stop in Bethlehem to view a short DVD on the birth of Jesus, the real meaning of Christmas. Due to the many passengers last year, two more trains have been added to the schedule. Trains begin to leave the station at noon and will leave every 30 minutes. The last train departs at 3:30 p.m. Each train ride is approximately one hour. No reservations are needed. This event is appropriate for all ages and is handicap accessible. Parking will be limited due to the staging of the Arli-Dazzle Parade. Consider arriving by way of ArliDazzle’s Horse and Carriage Rides beginning on Main Street.

Listening Sessions Continued from page 1
Comments on geographical thoughts included: • “There are definite differences and conflict between the communities, especially Arlington and Gaylord, stemming from being long time rivals. Many adults have not been able to put the rivalry aside. The students do not have issues with the consolidated district and get along well as a unified Sibley East. • “The site selection in Arlington was not well received due to the community differences. • “The cost of the land in Arlington was perceived as expensive for ag land. • “There is still resentments concerning the closing of the school in Green Isle and now has space issues. • “There is a general concensus that each community should have a school facility and that a community would lose a lot (growth, commerce, identity, etc.) if all students were moved to a new facility [in one community]. One idea would be to have an elementary school in each community and build a new middle/high school in a neutral location. • “A county school should have had more discussion. It was stated that the discussion with GFW [Gibbon Fairfax Winthrop] was only at the administration level and not at the board level. • “The location in Arlington would have been a good spot. Don’t build in Gaylord next to the chicken barn. • “Instead of fighting between Arlington and Gaylord, build it in Green Isle. • “There are many people who live in the district but don’t make a living there and may not be considering the effect of the school in the community. • “The City of Gaylord has also experienced increased taxes.” Euerle said location was an overlying theme in all the meetings. Comments under the physical category included: • “The steering committee should have spent more time on options to remodel the existing facilities rather than building new. The construction cost projections did not convince people that a new facility wa better than remodeling the existing. • “The project cost for the new facility was too high. There was a lack of confidence in how the cost estimate were establishing and perceived to be too high. • “The project and associated costs could have been phased to lessen the immediate impact of new taxes. • “Local contractors could have been used to remodel the existing buildings which would be less expensive. • “The Arlington building could support a third story addition. • “The district has done little to maintain the current buildings. • “A new task force established should be community members - not staff. • “Farmers were against it. There was a misconceptions that a new K12 facility would be funded by a bond and any remodel would have been funded by a levy. (Editor ’s Note: With a bond, all acreage owned is taxed. With a levy, the homestead and one acre is taxed.) • “The physical condition of the existing facilities is inadequate.” Euerle said words used to describe the existing facilities included “crumbling”, “appalling” and “moldy”. He added that the cost to taxpayers was a common theme in each meeting. When asked about the education at Sibley East, comments included: • “Students get a good education but the facilities (i.e. science rooms) have not changed in 50 years. Sibley east has not kept up and is falling behind neighboring districts. • “Educational requirements have changed and there are needs for spaces that didn’t exist years ago like special ed and technology. • “iPads are nice, but may be considered a luxury. Younger students may not be ready for that responsibility. Arlington did not support the technology infrastructure initiative. • “Educational programs are important. The district needs more gifted/talented classes. • “Academic achievement standards are lacking. • “The district needs to create an attractive environment to attract students. • “Companies want graduates with technology tools, especially in ag related industries. Technology is lacking the in district due to facilities.” Euerle told the board the listening sessions were well attended with 20 to 35 people at each, though he could not say if the participations were a good “cross section” of the communities. The board wasn’t surprised for the most part as many comments have been heard before and since the bond vote for the 40-plus million dollar school failed in May of 2011. The board felt it had played an active and appropriate role in the previous referendum and was surprised by the comments about the board. Euerle said that any project needs to be driven by the community, not by administration, board or staff, adding that comments were made that it felt like the last steering committee was “steering” the district into something rather than solving a problem. Chairperson Ann Karl asked if Euerle had any “bits of advice” for moving forward. Euerle recommended continueing the process when a new superintendent is in place. If the district decides to move forward, once the new superintendent is in place, the next steps would start the task force process that would include a series of about seven meetings over a six-month time period to explore all possible facility options. The task force would be made up of a good cross section of community members. He added that individuals in a number of the community groups that participated in the listening sessions expressed interest in being involved in the process. The board agreed that the space and facility needs have not changed, but decided to focus on hiring a new superintendent for the district at this time and revisit the issue once the superintendent is in place.
