Arlington is considering keeping tax levy the same
By Kurt Menk Editor The Arlington City Council is considering keeping the final tax levy the same as last year. The City Council arrived at that consensus during a budget meeting which was held early last week. The City Council, about three months ago, unanimously adopted a resolution to approve the preliminary 2012 tax for collection in 2013 at a 6.2 percent increase. Mayor Jim Kreft, at that time, said the City Council had every intention to lower the figure before December. To lower the 6.2 percent increase figure down to zero percent, the City Council intends to use reserves from the Capital Improvement Project (CIP) Fund and invoke miscellaneous cuts to erase about $47,000. The City Council will hold a public comment meeting on the proposed tax levy before final approval at 6 p.m. Monday, Dec. 3. The City Council, during the previous five years, has approved final tax levies of 2.2, zero, 5.9, three and three percent increases respectively.
CapX 2020 power pole plan is uprooted by county board
By Dave Pedersen Correspondent In a change of direction, the Sibley County Board voted not to move a mile stretch of County Road 164 about 10 feet to solve the problem of power poles placed in the wrong spot. Darin Mielke, Public Works Director, requested the change of heart at the board of commissioners meeting Tuesday, Nov. 27. He said a few things had transpired since the previous meeting when the board first heard of the CapX2020 transmission line encroachment into county highway rights of way. Mielke discovered that six power pole foundations were set in the right of way on CR164 to the north side of Silver Lake. Some foundations are actually in the ditch usable for drainage purposes. CapX2020 project managers Dan Lesher and Mark Anderson met and attended the Nov. 13 board meeting, agreeing to either move the poles or pay the county to move the road at an estimated cost of $300,000 for either project at the time. The board voted to move the road. Mielke said at the Nov. 27 meeting that his cost report turned out to be a total of about $421,000, including $350,000 for construction. It looks to be cheaper to move the poles. County Commissioner Jim Nytes said he and Mielke met with most of the residents along the stretch of road and found a consensus saying the poles should be moved, not the road. “The road is in nice shape with lots of gravel on it,” said Nytes. “People don’t want the inconvenience involved in building a road that does not need to be built. The only advantage would be a better ditch.” The problem resulted when CapX thought it was working on the section line, but did not realize the line was a little off line in the middle of the section of road until poles were placed in the right of way. To move the poles, new holes will have to be dug and the cement jack hammered from the old ones. The trans-

Tim Schmidt will be one of the conductors as passengers board the train for Bethlehem Express at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Arlington from noon to 3:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 1. Passengers will be taken on a journey to Bethlehem to learn the true meaning of Christmas. The stops will be the same as last year including 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.

City to remodel Tech Center into Public Safety Center
By Kurt Menk Editor The Arlington City Council, during its most recent regular meeting, voted 4-0 and approved a motion to approve the scope of work and plan set for the Tech Center Renovation Project and authorize the advertisement of bids. The Tech Center is the former Arlington City Office building which is located at 312 West Alden Street. City Council members Jim Pederson, Bob Pichelmann, Curt Reetz and Galen Wills voted in favor of the motion. City Council member Jason Ruehling was ill and unable to attend the meeting. The work will consist of a complete internal remodel of the building including windows, doors and lighting. The purpose of the renovation is to convert the building into a Public Safety Center. The goal is to move the Arlington Police Department from its present location on Main Street into the old filtration part of the Tech Center. The Arlington Area Ambulance Service is currently housed in the former Arlington City Office building. The Arlington Fire Department is presently located in a building directly east of the former Arlington City Office building. There is currently $50,000 in the Capital Improvement Fund which is designated for public building improvements. The plan is to budget $100,000 for the remodeling project. The City Council will receive sealed bids that follow the specifications listed until 11 a.m. Wednesday, Jan. 2, 2013. The City Council will consider the bids during its regular meeting at 6:30 p.m. Monday, Jan. 7, 2013. The project, according to City Administrator Matt Jaunich, will begin within 30 days after the contract is awarded. The project, he added, is expected to be completed early next summer. In other action, the City Council voted 4-0 and approved a motion to approve a proposal from Bolton & Menk, Mankato, to conduct an In-Flow & Infiltration Study in the City of Green Isle. The purpose of the study is to determine the origin or origins of elevated sewer flows in that community. The Arlington City Council will hold its next regular meeting at 6 p.m. Monday, Dec. 3.

Man hurt in shooting mishap
A rural Henderson man was injured in a shooting accident on Thursday, Nov. 22, according to the Sibley County Sheriff’s Department. While Gerald Grapentine was target shooting at his residence in Henderson Township, there was a misfire of the weapon which resulted in a catastrophic discharge, according to the report.

No injuries in rollover accident
A one-vehicle rollover accident, without injuries, reportedly occurred along 651st Avenue about five miles south of Buffalo Lake at about 5:18 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 21, according to the Sibley County Sheriff’s Department. A 2001 Ford Focus driven by Mae L. Keller, 17, rural Buffalo Lake, was southbound on 651st Avenue. The pavement ended and the gravel began when Keller reportedly lost control of the vehicle which entered the ditch and rolled. Her mother, Melinda Keller, 48, and her brother, Wyatt, 15, were also in the vehicle. All three people were wearing their seatbelts and not injured. The car sustained moderate damage.

Incident at Shilling Lake
The Sibley County Sheriff’s Department received a report of a vehicle and boat trailer that was parked near the public access by Shilling Lake around 6:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 23. It was reported that an individual had seen a boat on the lake at about 4 p.m., but the boat had not come off the lake. At about 8:30 p.m., the boater was located by the New Auburn Fire Department on the south shore of the lake. The boater was going to stay overnight to hunt ducks the following morning.
Seventh graders pay Tribute to the Titanic
Many members of Whitney Trocke’s seventh grade Honors English class participated in Tribute to the Titanic day at school on Tuesday, Nov. 20. This was the final day of their Titanic Unit that all seventh grade English students had been studying the past couple of weeks. During the unit, students read an excerpt from, “Exploring the Titanic” by Robert Ballard and completed a lot of research on both the Titanic as well as the passengers who were on board. For the final project, all students picked a passenger or crew member and researched the life of their passenger. Students also had the option of dressing up as their passenger as they took turns interviewing one another allowing the students to learn numerous passenger stories. Students really enjoyed this unit and learned a lot of interesting facts about the people on the Titanic as well as the events that led up to the sinking, according to Trocke. One of the most surprising facts they learned was that the Titanic had received several iceberg warnings from surrounding ships the night of the sinking.
Broken window on garage door
An individual reportedly broke a window on the garage door at the Jessica Laxen-Guenningsman residence along the 100 block of East Baker Street in Arlington sometime prior to 1:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 24, according to the Arlington Police Department.

Drive-By Living Nativity to be held Sunday evening, Dec. 2
“She gave birth to her first-born son and wrapped him in swaddling cloths, and laid him in a manger, for there was no place for them in the inn.” Luke 2: 7 Begin the Advent season by visiting the Drive-By Living Nativity. Gain a sense of what it was like to experience the joy of birth on a holy night in Bethlehem. The public is invited to this Christmas tradition on the northwest corner of the Sibley County Fairgrounds in Arlington from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 2. The community started the Living Nativity tradition 23 years ago. Many people work behind the scenes setting up each scene of the Nativity and getting the actors ready. Actors and live animals depict events leading to the birth of Jesus in Bethlehem. People are encouraged to read the Bible verses aloud as they stop to observe each scene. Viewers are asked to enter off Chandler Street to the fairgrounds. All cars will be exiting on County Road 9. There will be two entrance lines with greeters and food shelf collectors. The greeter will give people a handout and tell them to tune their car radio to FM 104.9. This station is dedicated to music specific to the Living Nativity and will be heard only in the fairgrounds. Food donations for the food shelf and cash donations will be accepted by volunteers at the entrance. Come, relive and rejoice at the birth of Jesus Christ. Enjoy the holiday spirit starting at 5:30 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 2. If the Arli-Dazzle Parade is postponed to Sunday, Dec. 2, the Drive-By Living Nativity will begin at 7 p.m. If weather causes the event to be cancelled, listen to KNUJ or KDUZ for the announcement.

Being in minority new to Newman
By Rich Glennie McLeod County Chronicle Editor Even though he won reelection, state Sen. Scott Newman, R-Hutchinson, is on the move — out of his current office at the state Capitol and into another office. That is the ritual when your party goes from being the majority to the minority. That is what happened Nov. 6, when the DFL captured both houses of the Minnesota Legislature with a DFL governor in Mark Dayton. Newman, who represents the newly revised Senate District 18, was an easy victor for a second term. Elected in 2010, Newman and all the state senators were on this year’s ballot because of redistricting. Newman said the balancing act at the moment is getting the offices moved, since he has to move out of one at the same time some DFLer moves out of another. Another experience for Newman will be as a minority member of the Legislature for the first time. “I’ve always been in the majority. It will be a new experience.” His first stint in the Minnesota House was by special election after state Rep. Tony Kielucki resigned. The Republicans controlled the House at the time. When he ran for the state Senate in 2010, Republicans captured the Senate for the first time in 40 years. “We all like being in the majority,” Newman said. “But we’ll do the best we can.” Newman said he gets along with members across the aisle, and pointed out that 150 bills were passed in the last session either unanimously, or nearly unanimously. “The partisan bickering (portrayed by the metro media) is nowhere as bad as folks are told. But we do have philosophical differences. But 98 percent of the legislation is bipartisan legislation.” He said the conflicts often are more on an “urban versus rural” divide. The main areas of disagreement come when omnibus bills on the budget, taxes or bonding are brought forth. “That’s the ones we fight over.” As to political critics, Newman said, “We will be criticized no matter what we do.” He said he is criticized for not compromising, and he gets criticized for not standing up for his principles. “Then if we compromise, like the 2011 budget bill, where we spent $1.5 billion more and I voted for it .... I hated myself for that,” Newman said. That bill shifted funds from education to balance the budget and ended a shutdown of state government. “Democracy is messy, and gram “is expensive.” Also, how to address the costs of public defenders, especially who pays for appeals, may be debated next session. And of course, the budget is always a main topic, Newman said. “I fear there will be an increase in taxes.” Newman pointed to 2011 in which the state had revenues of $30 billion and received another $4 billion in federal stimulus money. “That $34 billion was put on the table, and we (Republicans) said ‘take it or leave it.’” Gov. Dayton came back with a $39.5 budget proposal, and in the end the two sides compromised at $35.5 billion, or $1.5 billion more than it had in revenues, Newman said. That is when the difference was made up with a shift in public school education funding and using tobacco funds. “I regret that approach,” Newman said of leaving all $34 billion on the table to start with. Newman said the governor wanted $39 billion the last time, and he predicts it will be over $40 billion for the next biennium. While he admits the state revenues have improved over the last year or two, “there is not enough to cover what is being proposed. We don’t have it.” Newman is optimistic that Republicans can work with rural, more conservative DFLers on the budget, including new DFL Majority Leader Tom Bakk, DFLCook, who is known as a fiscal conservative. What Gov. Dayton will get, may depend on what Sen. Bakk gives him, Newman predicted. As to new House Majority Leader Paul Thissen, DFL-Minneapolis, “he’s an urban guy,” Newman said, implying spending is not an issue. Even if state revenues come in at $34 billion to $36 billion, Newman said “I don’t see a reduction in spending,” and Dayton may ask as much as $43 billion for the next biennium. He reminded all that the state still owes $2 billion to school districts in Minnesota. ***** While Newman, District 18B state Rep. Glenn Gruenhagen, R-Glencoe, and District 18A state Rep. Dean Urdahl, R-Grove City, all won re-election, “We live in a little pocket of conservative folks,” Newman said. Statewide, Republicans took a drubbing. “It was a bad Republican year,” Newman conceded. “We have to retool.” As to the amendments, including the voter ID amendment he championed in the Senate, Newman said he was

Scott Newman the stakes are high,” Newman said. “The vast majority of us run for office to make communities and the state a better place. We just have different visions on how to accomplish that.” In the majority, Newman said committee members have an opportunity to “vet, flush out ideas. It is more difficult for a minority bill to get a hearing. That’s up to the chairman.” He said the goal of a minority committee member is to amend the majority bill. When the majority totally ignores the minority, “it will get ugly and noisy.” Newman expects his committee assignments to be made soon. He added he “preferred to follow the money” on the finance, tax and commerce committees, “but I will probably end up on the judiciary and public safety committees” because of his legal background. The goal of the Republican minority in the next two sessions will be more of a “watchdog,” Newman said. “If they (DFLers) go too far, we’ll get noisy.” With control of the Legislature, “DFLers can literally do what they want,” Newman said. But he warned if Gov. Dayton tries to push a $40 billion budget and repeal the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), “I think the people (voters) will set them straight in two years.” When it comes to bonding bills, the DFL majority needs at least three Republicans to vote with them for passage. But Newman said getting the additional votes on bonding bills is easier if the funds go towards projects in a legislator’s district, like the Mankato, Rochester or Duluth civic center plans. ***** As to Newman’s agenda, “It’s still the reduction in the size and growth of government. That did not happen with Gov. Dayton (and his vetoes).” Some of the big issues next session may be what to do with the state’s sex offender program that locks offenders up for life. He said it is a nonpartisan issue, and the pro-

Tis the season to be shopping
Our View: Shop at home and support the local business community
The holiday shopping season is almost here. For most people that began on Black Friday which was Friday, Nov. 23. Shopping, of course, should not be the focus of the holiday season. There are much more fulfilling activities such as spending time with friends and family, counting your blessings and celebrating a special birth. Gift giving, however, is a part of the holiday tradition and this season local residents should consider giving back to the community by shopping more at home. Why? The business people in the community take special pride in serving the residents of Arlington, especially during the holiday season. They are there to assist you and not take advantage of you. In addition, they offer personalized customer service which is almost nonexistent in bigger communities. They are always willing to help you with any of your Christmas needs. Shopping in Arlington is also convenient. Finding a parking spot is easy and the stores are within an easy walking distance. There are no hassles with long checkout lines, no wasted time waiting for a clerk’s assistance or other inconveniences. The environment in Arlington is also beautiful with all the Christmas decorations hanging outside and inside the stores. However, the most important reason to shop in Arlington is because the money will stay in the community. By keeping the money in Arlington, you will benefit your friends and neighbors, especially in these difficult and challenging economic times. In addition, people should never forget that it is the local businesses who pay taxes which help fund the school along with city and county services. Futhermore, they faithfully support many non-profit groups, service organizations and various church, school and civic fundraisers throughout the year. Again, the best Christmas prsesent that local residents can give their community is to shop at home this holiday season. K.M.

A bipartisan goal: Good constituent service
By Lee H. Hamilton The rigors of the campaign are still fresh, but for newly elected House members and senators, the hard part is just beginning. Already, they’re inundated with advice on the issues they’ll be facing: the fiscal cliff, crises overseas, how to behave in a highly partisan Congress. All of this will take time to sort out. But there’s one task I’d advise them to tackle right away, whatever their party: learning how to do constituent services right. Many years ago, when I was still in the House, I accompanied a senator to a public meeting. A woman approached him afterward to ask for help with a Social Security problem. Irritably, my colleague told her that he didn’t have time; he had important policy issues to deal with. I was stunned. So was the woman. I have never forgotten the look of helpless chagrin on her face. Self-interest alone would have counseled a more helpful approach. I ran into someone from my district once who told me, “I don’t agree with you most of the time, but I’m voting for you because you take good care of your constituents.” People notice. And they care. That senator who rebuffed the plea for help? He was defeated in the next election. But there’s more to it than just currying favor with the electorate. Good constituent service, I believe, is crucial to being a good elected representative. There’s no mystery why. The federal government is vast, complex, and confusing, and it touches far more lives than any private company. Sometimes it’s a model of efficiency, but too often it’s agonizingly slow to get off a passport or approve a disability payment. And it makes mistakes — a transposed Social Security number, a wrong address, a benefit miscalculation — and then drags its heels fixing them. Its rules and regulations can be hard to navigate. Ordinary Americans get caught up in the gears, and they need help. As a member of Congress, you can learn a lot by paying attention. Though it’s a habit for legislators to think of policy-making and constituent service as two distinct halves of their responsibilities, that’s not always the case. The problems people are having keep you alert to what might need to be done legislatively. If there’s a huge backlog of disability cases at the Social Security Administration, for instance, or a surge of veterans having trouble getting their benefits, that ought to be a warning sign. Workers in those agencies may be struggling to remain efficient, or they may need additional staff and resources — either way, it bears investigating and, possibly, legislative action. The challenge, of course, is that helping constituents with their problems isn’t easy. It demands a commitment of staff and time. It means being careful to avoid even a hint that a constituent’s party affiliation matters. It requires walking a fine line with the bureaucracy — which can sometimes resent congressional “meddling” — so that you’re helpful without going overboard on a constituent’s behalf. Sometimes, the people you’re helping don’t tell the whole story. The best you can do is ask for fair and prompt consideration for their pleas, without putting yourself at cross-purposes with either the law or the federal officials you work with daily. But none of this is a reason to downplay constituent service. Because the need is endless. I used to set up shop in a local post office in my district, and was constantly amazed at how many people would turn out. They needed help getting their mail delivered properly, or tracking a lost Social Security check. They were having problems with the IRS, or getting enrolled for veterans benefits. They got confused by the overlapping responsibilities of different levels of government, and needed help finding the right person to call. The point is, these problems are constant. I’ve been out of public office for over a decade, yet the other day a neighbor stopped me on the street to ask for help speeding up a visa application. Americans need a point of contact with their government. If you’re a public official — or even an ex-public official — get used to the idea that you’re it. Lee Hamilton is Director of the Center on Congress at Indiana University. He was a member of the U.S. House of Representatives for 34 years.

The rabbit is dead. The guy panics. Thinking his neighbor is going to hate him forever, he takes the dirty, chewed up rabbit into the house and gives it a bath, blow dries its fur. He then puts the rabbit back into the cage on the neighbor’s patio in hopes they will think it died of natural causes. A few days later, the neighbor is outside. He asks the guy, “Did you hear that Fluffy died?” The guy stiffens and says, “Um.. er.. no.. what happened?” The neighbor replies, “We just found him dead in his cage one day. But the weird thing is that the day after we buried him, we went outside and someone had dug him up, given him a bath and put him back into the cage. There are some real sick people out there!” ***** An enthusiastic door-to-door vacuum salesman goes to the first house in his new territory. He knocks. A lady opens the door, and before she has a chance to say anything, he runs inside and dumps cow patties all over the carpet. He says, “Lady, if this vacuum cleaner doesn’t do wonders cleaning this up, I’ll eat every chunk of it.” She turns to him with a smirk and says, “You want ketchup on that?” The salesman says, “Why do you ask?” She says, “We just moved in and we haven’t got the electricity turned on yet.” ***** On a whim a man decided to get his wife a dozen roses and surprise her after work. The minute he opened the door, his wife started screaming at him, “This is the worst day that I have ever had! The kids have been terrible. They got in a food fight, the washing machine broke and flooded the basement, I burned dinner and the dog chewed up my best pair of shoes…” She then looked at the roses he was holding, “…and now you’ve obviously done something wrong!” *****
A smarter way to grade America’s high schools
By John Chubb Everyone agrees that America's high schools need to do a better job of preparing students to be "collegeand career-ready." But the big problem is, how do we get them to do that? One state has just come up with a bold solution - and it could serve as a model for education reform throughout the entire country. California recently passed a law that reduces the weight of standardized test scores for ranking high schools. Now, crucial factors like graduation rates, attendance and student advancement will play a larger role in grading the ability of public schools in preparing students to succeed after high school This law is a big step in the right direction -- and it paves the way for other states to pass similar reforms aimed at preparing students for college and beyond. Why the change? Since 1999, every California public school has been granted an Academic Performance Index, or API, score based almost entirely on how its students fare on a handful of standardized tests. Other states are also similarly reliant upon test scores to evaluate their schools' successes. These scores help determine everything about a school's future -whether it receives funding, whether parents can move their children to a better school, even whether home values rise or fall. So the pressure to get a high score is enormous. The intention, of course, has been to hold schools accountable for their performance and to give them incentives to improve. The problem is that the system puts too much emphasis on tests that don't necessarily predict how well a student will actually do after high school. In the end, students were being prepared to succeed on tests while they were in school, not to succeed beyond graduation. Sure enough, a closer look at the numbers reveals that, when based primarily on these tests, a school's API score can be an unreliable predictor of how well its students will perform in college. A 2012 study conducted by Education Sector found that one school with the relatively high API score of 778 out of 1,000 had a 91 percent graduation rate but sent just 66 percent of its students to college. Meanwhile, a school with a score of just 698 had a graduation rate of 95 percent and sent 86 percent of its students to college. The API's true shortcoming is revealed when the scores are applied to schools with a high proportion of low-income students. According to our study, three of the five highpoverty schools with the lowest API scores were among the top five overall in sending their graduates to college. And the school with the lowest API score had the highest postsecondary enrollment rate: 79 percent of its graduates in 2009 went on to a postsecondary institution, 5 percentage points above the state average. Standardized test scores certainly provide one valid measure of student success. But it is clear that they are not entirely accurate in measuring whether students are really ready for life after high school. And this problem has serious realworld consequences. Only 25 percent of high school students taking common college entrance exams in California are deemed college- and career-ready. And two out of every five college students must take remedial classes for basic skills before they can qualify for credit-bearing work. Our nation's high schools have been failing to provide the requisite tools for students before sending them out the door. The new law does much to fix how California ranks its schools. It ensures that, as of 2016, test scores can count for no more than 60 percent of a school's API score, and it says that the state superintendent must add graduation rates and measures of college- and career-preparedness to the mix. The reality of today's economy is that students must start preparing for life beyond high school from the moment they enter a freshman classroom. It's our job to make sure that our high schools are helping them do just that. If we want America's students to arrive at college ready for postsec-

MMA urges Minnesotans to get a flu shot this year
The Minnesota Medical Association is urging Minnesotans, ages six months and up, to get a flu shot. Despite pleas by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), many people have still not gotten one. The CDC says the flu and its complications rank as the eighth leading cause of death nationwide, accounting for about 49,000 deaths and upward of 200,000 hospitalizations annually. “There are many misconceptions that go with flu shots,” said Dan Maddox, M.D., MMA president and allergist from the Mayo Clinic. “Whether you’ve gotten the flu in the past or not, it’s best to take preventive action to avoid it this season.” Here are some common myths: • A flu shot can give you the flu. The injectable flu vaccine is a 100 percent dead, brokenup virus and is not infectious. • Odds are you won’t get sick. How often this winter will you be in the same room/elevator/auto with someone who is coughing, sneezing and doing their best to infect you? • You’re healthy, so getting the flu is no big deal. Influenza hits even the strong and healthy. And, there’s not much a physician can do after you have it. • Flu shots are useless after November. The flu season changes every year. Things like air travel spread viruses quickly to far flung places. It takes 10 to 14 days to develop immunity after getting the flu shot. • Pregnant women can't be vaccinated. Getting immunized during pregnancy protects women and infants for the first six months of life when they can't be vaccinated. You can find where to get a flu shot on the Minnesota Department of Health website at www.health.state.mn.us/ind ex.html. The Minnesota Medical Association is a non-profit professional association representing physicians, residents and medical students, working together for a healthy Minnesota. With more than 10,000 members, the MMA is an advocate on health care issues at the State Capitol and in Washington D.C. Find the MMA online at www.mnmed.org.

ondary work, then we must improve our country's systems for evaluating high schools. California just put forward a great model for reform. What we need now is for the rest of the country to follow.

Newman Continued from page 3
“disappointed” and “surprised.” The biggest surprise, he said was “the precipitous fall” in popularity of the voter ID from one year earlier. Polls a year earlier had 70 percent to 80 percent of those polled in favor of voter ID. “That was the reason it was on the ballot. I don’t have an explanation,” Newman said, but he did say opponents of the amendment “out spent us 2-to-1. Money talks.” Newman said the amendment really lost popularity when high-profile people like Secretary of State Mark Ritchie, Gov. Dayton and former Republican Gov. Arne Carlson “were dead against it. “I never intended to disenfranchise anybody,” Newman stressed. He also said there were exaggerations about the costs of the new voter ID requirements at the local level. He said the state was to pick up those costs. Asked if it could come back as a tweak to current statutes, Newman said that already had been tried and the governor vetoed it. “It was a very partisan bill because it would have eliminated the voucher system (on same-day registration). That is made-to-order voter fraud,” Newman added. “And the DFL is very happy with the voucher system.” As to the defeat of the marriage amendment, Newman said it is almost certain that DFLers will “take a run at DOMA.” But he said voters rejection of the amendment, “was not a statement in favor of gay marriage.” The pro-amendment side “was outspent, again. I was surprised (it was defeated). I expect to see movement on the gay marriage issue in the coming session,” Newman added.

mission line runs from Brookings County, S. D., to Hampton, Minn. 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. • In commissioner reports, Nytes said the Rural Energy Board is gaining about $10,000 a year in its fund balance with new counties like Sibley becoming involved. Nytes said he made the motion to cap the fund balance at $150,000 and reimburse funds back to the counties. He estimates Sibley County could get back $500 per year if the trend continues. • County Commissioner Bill Pinske said MnDOT informed the local Trailblazer bus service that it has increased its contribution to $397,000. As part of the deal, Trailblazer must hire an operational manager and assistant. Current employees will be given a three percent salary increase. The route to Buffalo will be dropped, resulting in a savings of about $60,000. A new route will be added from Winsted to Watertown. • County Commissioner Jim Swanson said the Sioux Trails Mental Health Agency will make improvements to the office in Gaylord. Swanson suggested looking for another building in town. Swanson noted that Region 9 is doing a lot more than in the past seven to eight years, saying the new executive director is “taking us in a good new direction.” • A special county board meeting for the annual Truth in Taxation hearing and fee schedule amendments will be held in the Commissioners Room is 6 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 6. • The next board of commissioners meeting is 9 a.m. Tuesday, Dec. 11. The scheduled meeting on Tuesday, Dec. 25 (Christmas Day) has been moved to the next day on Dec. 26.

Sibley East girls basketball team falls to G-F-W 39-37
By Kurt Menk Editor The Sibley East varsity girls basketball team opened its season with a 39-37 loss to visiting G-F-W in non-conference action on Monday night, Nov. 26. The Lady Wolverines tallied the first seven points of the contest and held a small lead until G-F-W tied the game with about seven minutes left in the second half. The lead changed hands a few times after that point until the visitors held on for the two-point victory. Senior Jordan Thomes, who was plagued with foul trouble, still paced the scoring attack with 10 points. Junior Jessica Garza and McKenzie Sommers hit for six points each while junior Megan Eckberg scored five points. Sophomores Autumn Dose and Kelli Martens hooped four and three points respectively while junior Maren Miner had two points. Junior Kimberly Kurtzweg added one point. The Lady Wolverines, who did not sink a three-pointer, hit just 13 of 52 shots from the field for 24 percent. Sibley East also managed only 11 of 26 foul shots for 42 percent. Sibley East, which committed 19 turnovers, collected a total of 41 rebounds in the setback. Dose grabbed 11 boards while Eckberg and Sommers snared seven and six caroms respectively. Garza pulled down five rebounds while Thomes and Martens added four boards each. Dose also dished out three assists while Garza recorded three steals. The Lady Wolverines were whistled for a total of 20 fouls in the game. Sibley East, 0-1 overall, will host Sleepy Eye St. Mary’s in non-conference action at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 30.
The Sibley East B-squad girls basketball team opened its season with a 47-24 win over visiting G-F-W on Monday night, Nov. 26. Alyssa Weber pumped in 16 points while McKayla Stumm also hit double digits with 11 points. Liz Thies tossed in nine points while Mikayla Perschau and Shelby Voight scored six and five
points respectively. Thies grabbed eight rebounds while Weber snared six boards. Stumm and Perschau had four caroms each.

Sibley East boys basketball team has its sights set high
By Kurt Menk Editor The Sibley East varsity boys basketball team has its sights set high with 11 letterwinners, including three starters, returning for the upcoming season. “We look to flip our 8-16 record from a year ago,” said Sibley East head coach Mike Feterl. “We hope to contend for the conference and section titles this year.” The returning starters are senior post players Tyler Bates (6’5”) and Max Grabow (6’10”) and junior point guard Brody Rodning. The remaining letterwinners include seniors Andrew Grack, Steve Haefs, Logan Highland, Nick Bruss and Tyler Kratzke; juniors Ben White and Cordell Bates; and sophomore Zac Weber. A newcomer is senior Sam Harrison (6’5”) who is a transfer student-athlete from Prior Lake. The remaining senior is Patrick Schauer while the remaining juniors are Nick Haupt and Julius Asmussen. The remaining sophomores are Cole Bruhn, Andrew Bullert, Lukas Bullert, Zachary Garza, Darin Neisen, Jordan Petzel, Tyler Reid and Sam Thies. “Tyler Bates is our leading scorer and rebounder from a year ago,” said Feterl. “Tyler is an all conference player who can play inside and outside. He runs the floor very well. We will count on Tyler with his strength to get us rebounds and easy buckets.” Feterl said “Max Grabow will be a great presence for us on the inside with his shot blocking and rebounding. He has improved his offensive game.” Feterl continued, “Brody will control the point. He is not only a great ball handler, but also a great outside shooter.” According to Feterl, “Steve Haefs is a proven shooter with great outside range. Logan Highland, Andrew Grack and Nick Bruss will also be in the mix and be looked upon to contribute.” Feterl also said, “Sam Harrison brings an all around game to the team. We expect him to make an impact right away.” Feterl also commented that White and Weber are two more guards in the rotation. They play excellent defense and will be looked upon to contribute on offense. “This is the deepest and most experienced team I have had in my short career,” said Feterl. “We have the ingredients this year to be a very successful basketball team.” Feterl continued, “With the depth we have this year, we need to up the defensive pressure and wear opposing teams down. If we play solid team defense, our firepower on offense will take care of itself.” Feterl added, “When in doubt, we will look to pound it into the post. With our size, teams will have trouble matching up with us.” Feterl is assisted by varsity assistant coach Dick Milinkovich, B-squad coach Todd Iverson, C-squad coach Dan Tackmann. The Wolverines will open the season against visiting Howard Lake in non-conference play at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 4.

County solving issues with filling open staff positions
By Dave Pedersen Correspondent The hiring of a Sibley County administrator has created issues with the hiring of open positions in the auditor’s office. Positions are starting to be filled with action taken at the board of commissioners meeting on Tuesday, Nov. 27. The department has been down a couple of full-time employees for a couple of months, with another vacancy created three weeks ago. Delay in filling positions was because the personnel advisory committee and a consultant wanted to re-structure some positions so the new county administrator has staff support if the position begins in January as planned. The board approved the recommendation to fill open positions in the auditor’s department. But it was not easy when positions were renamed, cut in half and job responsibilities changed. Roseann Nagel, Human Resources Director, first asked the board to approve authorization to recruit for an accountant in the auditor’s office at grade 10, replacing Aaron Sharpe who resigned. “There are going to be some shifts of duties within the department,” said Nagel. “A position that was vacated a while back was administrative assistant/elections. The position served in the boardroom and dealt with agenda items related to board business. The proposal is to eliminate the position under that job title.” Another position in the auditor’s office is the full-time license/account tech ll. Nagel asked the board to re-title of the position to elections/license supervisor. Elections and other duties will be transferred to this position. County board administrative duties will be excluded. The license/account tech l position will be re-titled to support technician. The position is currently filled by two part-time employees, each working 18 hours a week. The proposal now is to split the full-time position that was eliminated, each getting 20 hours a week. One will go to be a license account tech and the other will be support staff to the new county administrator. “I want to make it clear that these proposals do not increase full-time staffing positions,” said Nagel. “In the end, the grand total of fulltime employees remains the same. There just is a shift of duties.” Nagel said County Auditor Lisa Pfarr created the job description for the administrator’s clerical support position because she knows what is involved. County Commissioner Joy Cohrs asked why there are two people working half-time rather than one full-time. Nagel said it was to have flexibility. If indeed something occurred in the auditor’s office and a few extra hours needed to be added there is flexibility. The same is true for the administrator’s position. The best case scenario was to have two parttime positions. County Commissioner Bill Pinske said if there is going to be a split for sure, then why not put the administrator assistant’s position on hold for a while. Nagel said there needs to be someone here fulfilling the duties, and also there may be some training. Cohrs asked how you train someone if the county never had the position. Pfarr said the work is being done, but the position shifting is setting up the board to be in a better position to have a support staff for the county administrator. “The work in the position we are talking about is being done in the auditor’s office,” said Pfarr. “The work is there and has to get done. If you don’t fill this position for two or three months, who will do the work? It is absolutely necessary you fill this position. I ask the board to put trust in auditor’s office to hire someone who will work and mesh well with the county administrator.” Pfarr added that the auditor’s office is in a position of challenge to fill three fulltime positions. She does not think it is appropriate for the county board to continue to expect people to do work they were not hired to do. “In a normal situation things would be different, but we are down three staff,” said Swanson. “That kind of puts a different face on it.” Pfarr said, “I think it would be an error for the board not to move forward and fill this position.” County Commissioners Jim Nytes moved to recruit to fill the administrative position. County Commissioner Harold Pettis said he still wants to let the administrator decide how much the staff person is used. Maybe they want to change the job description. “The job had to start somewhere and the board has to be open and flexible to allow the auditor and administrator’s office to work through this transition,” said Pfarr. “Keep in mind it would take at least eight weeks to recruit and hire. Once on board there is six-month probation. We will strive for success.” Swanson said if the new position gets pushed out that far, the administrator can still be involved in the hire process. The administrator may want to bring the new staff person in. “I struggle with the administrator assistant because our time table isn’t written in stone,” said Pinske.”Nicollet County took months to hire.” Pfarr responded, “Simply put, let’s not let the process of hiring a county administrator be a road block to getting an assistant.”
Preliminary 2012 firearm deer harvest numbers are released
Minnesota hunters harvested 151,400 deer so far during the 2012 early firearm season, according to preliminary numbers announced last week by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR). The late 3B season in southeastern Minnesota remains open through Sunday, Nov. 25. Overall, antlered buck harvest increased nine percent and antlerless deer harvest decreased 21 percent compared to 2011. In total, firearm harvest was off seven percent, which was expected given the conservative allocation of antlerless deer permits. “The increase in buck harvest and decrease in antlerless deer harvest is a reflection of slightly higher deer populations statewide, yet a more conservative harvest philosophy this year,” said Lou Cornicelli, DNR wildlife research manager. “What drives total harvest is how we manage antlerless deer.” This year, DNR increased the number of lottery areas where hunters could only take an antlerless deer by permit. Opening weekend weather, which drives much of the statewide deer harvest, was nearly ideal with clear skies, cool temperatures, and a near total crop harvest. Ample hunting opportunities remain as the statewide muzzleloader season runs from Saturday, Nov. 24 through Sunday, Dec. 9. The archery season closes on Monday, Dec. 31. The deer harvest number is calculated using data provided by hunters when they register a deer. A final report, which includes more detailed harvest information, will be available on the DNR website at the end of January.

Choosing corn hybrids for next growing season
By Jeff Coulter Liz Stahl U of M Extension In a year when tremendous variability was observed within fields as well as among areas of the state, information from replicated trials like the University of Minnesota trials is particularly valuable. Since we can't predict next year's growing conditions, select hybrids that perform well over multiple locations within a region. Hybrids that consistently perform well over multiple environment, including different soil and weather conditions, have greater potential to perform well the next year, compared to hybrids with less consistence performance. Below are University of Minnesota Extension grain and silage hybrid selection recommendations based on the results from the 2012 University of Minnesota corn grain and silage trials. Considerations for grain hybrid selection: Hybrid selection begins with maturity. Early Growing Degree Day (GDD) accumulation, combined with an early planting season overall, caused corn to mature early in 2012. In planning for next year, identify an acceptable maturity range based on the number GDDs required for a hybrid to reach physiological maturity (black layer). Detailed information about the number of GDDs available for corn production for multiple locations along with information on the relationship between GDDs and corn relative maturity (RM) is available at: http://z.umn.edu/ak0 Plant multiple hybrids of varying maturity to spread risk, and widen the harvest interval. There is more variability in yield among hybrids within a given RM rating than there is between maturity groups. Detailed information on corn grain yields and harvest moisture for various RMs across Minnesota is available at: http://z.umn.edu/ak1 Hybrids should also be selected according to agronomic traits such as standability, disease tolerance, emergence, and the need for transgenic resistance to insects and herbicides within a given production system. Considerations for silage hybrid selection: One of the first things to consider when selecting silage hybrids is maturity. Longer-season hybrids tend to have higher silage yields. A general guideline is that hybrids planted for silage should be five to 10 days longer in RM than the hybrids planted for grain. Select hybrids that have a range in RM, as this widens the harvest window. Harvesting at the correct moisture level is critical for producing high quality silage, and if missed, can negate the benefits of good hybrid selection. Other important agronomic considerations when selecting silage hybrids include herbicide and insect resistance for the given cropping system, and tolerance to drought and disease. Since corn silage is an energy source for animal performance, producers should consider both silage quality and yield when selecting hybrids. Consulting with a livestock nutritionist during the hybrid selection process helps to ensure that selected hybrids will have the necessary nutritive value for your herd.

Klaers captures top honors in the junior competition
By Kurt Menk Editor Zack Klaers, a sophomore at the Sibley East Senior High School, placed first in the junior competition for youth beef industry advocates ages 13-15 during the recent Minnesota Beef Expo at the Minnesota State Fair Grounds in St. Paul. Overall, a dozen youth competed in the junior division. Klaers was judged in media interview, classroom presentation and issues response. He earned a $100 scholarship for his overall score. In addition, he has the opportunity to compete at nationals next fall. “It’s just so far been a great experience in the people I’m meeting,” said Klaers. “It’s been expanding my knowledge of the beef industry.” Klaers is open to talking to groups about the beef industry. He can be reached at 507964-5464. Klaers is a member of the Rush River Rushers 4-H Club and the Sibley East FFA. He is the son of Pat and Sandy Klaers, rural Arlington. The family raises about 20 head of cattle on their farm located five miles south of Arlington.
