The McLeod County
Election results trickle in, incomplete
By Rich Glennie Editor While the presidential race was declared early in President Barrack Obama’s favor over former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, and U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., successfully won a second term in landslide victory over Republican Kurt Bills, the results of the local elections came painfully slow Tuesday night. As of 11 p.m., no results from the county’s 28 precincts had been posted by the McLeod County Auditor’s Office. Ten minutes later, four of the 28 precincts had been counted. Then five precincts by 11:30 p.m. and seven by 11:45 p.m. Nearing midnight it was up to nine precincts. A trip to the North Complex about 10:30 p.m. found voting judges and their ballot boxes crammed into the hallways waiting their turns to be counted. There were many elective positions on this year’s ballots, including municipal elections, school board elections as well as township and soil and water conservation board seats up for grabs. There was no indication at press time of the voter turnout. None of Glencoe’s four precincts had been counted as of The Chronicle’s press deadline. The state level, if early returns were any indication, incumbent Republicans, District 18 state Sen. Scott Newman, R-Hutchinson was ahead in McLeod County over DFL challenger Steve Schiroo of Cokato, while incumbent state Rep. Glenn Gruenhagen, R-Glencoe, was ahead of DFL challenger Logan Campa for the newly created District 18B seat. Early results on the Glencoe-Silver Lake School Board election indicated a tight four-person race for the three open positions. Incumbents Jamie Alsleben, Gary Schreifels and Kevin Kuester were being challenged by newcomer Donna VonBerge. In the race for the 1st District McLeod County Commissioner District, state Rep. Ron Shimanski, RSilver Lake appeared to be in a comfortable lead over challenger Gene Feltmann. The winner will replace retiring commissioner Ray Bayerl of Winsted. Another commissioner, Bev Wangerin of Hutchinson, also is retiring at the end of the year. In the race for the 7th District House seat, incumbent U.S. Rep. Collin Peterson, D-Minn., was slightly ahead of Republican challenger Lee Byberg in the McLeod County count. The early returns on the two constitutional amendment questions were both favoring passage in the early McLeod County tally. The amendments would require a voter ID in order to vote and define marriage in Minnesota as one man and one woman.

City to provide 1-sort recycling starting Jan. 1
By Lori Copler Staff Writer The city of Glencoe will have a new, one-sort recycling program as of Jan. 1. The City Council on Monday night approved a three-year contract with Waste Management, Inc., for both garbage and recycling collection. Participation in the one-sort recycling program will be voluntary, and paid for through a $2.90 per household, per month, recyclable material offset (RMO) fee. Residents also have the option to continue participating in McLeod County’s five-sort recycling program, which is funded entirely by the county through its landfill tip fees. Rick Rud of Waste Management said that one-sort recycling, in which residents simply sort their recyclable material from regular waste, usually results in more material being recycled. Rud cited several instances of the adoption of single-sort programs and the resulting increases in recycling: city of Montgomery, a 37.7 percent increase; the city of Elysian, which went from a two-sort system to a one-sort, 49.1 percent increase; Lake Crystal, 13.1 percent; and Cottonwood County, a 31 percent increase in its first year of single-sort recycling. Council member Greg Copas said he is one of the “guilty ones” who uses a 96-gallon garbage bin because he simply does not like sorting his recyclables, and that he would be more likely to recycle under a one-sort system. Mayor Randy Wilson said he felt most residents would gladly pay the small fee for the one-sort service, rather than the five-sort. Wilson also indicated that people may be able to offset the recycling fee by going to a smaller garbage container for regular waste as a result of recycling. Rud said Waste Management is planning an educational program explaining the one-sort system. City Administrator Mark Larson said the new contract also includes a request for Waste Management to prepare a curriculum for the schools in Glencoe. “If they (students) are single-sorting at home, why should they learn to five-sort at school?” Larson said. The new contract also establishes garbage collection rates, starting in 2013. A new level of service has been established for seniors and disabled persons of $8.30 per residential unit per month. using a 32-gallon container. The other rates are 32-gallon container: $9.45 per residential unit; 64-gallon, $10.28 per residential unit; and $11.16 per residential unit for a 96-gallon container. The garbage collection rates will start increasing in January 2014 at a rate equal to the Consumer Price Index (CPI), but to never exceed 3 percent. Larson said the garbage collection rates have not been raised for five years. There also is a fuel escalator clause in the new contract, which

County recycling up 4 tons a week with change
Happenings
Poultry party set Nov. 16
Plato Baseball will be sponsoring a poultry party with games and food at 7:30 p.m., Friday, Nov. 16, at the Plato Community Hall. There also will be cash drawings, and one need not be present to win. By Lori Copler Staff Writer McLeod County Solid Waste is collecting an additional four tons of recycling since it went to an everyweek curbside pickup in the smaller communities of the county. Hutchinson and Glencoe both had every-week pickup before the county switched to a new hauler in October. Other communities in the county had curbside pickup every other week. Commissioner Sheldon Nies, who sits on the county’s Materials Recovery Facility (MRF) committee, along with fellow commissioner Paul Wright, reported on the increase in recycling at the County Board’s Oct. 30 meeting. Nies also said that there have been 250 new requests for the blue curbside recycling bins. “Think of this — that’s 250 more people who are recycling,” said Nies. “It puts a strain on our people, but it’s a good problem to have.” Nies also said that the county hasn’t fully launched its educational promotion for the new curbside collection schedule, so it’s expected that the program will continue to grow. Wright said the county could realize even more recycling if it would properly label the collection trailers Solid Waste provides to charities for paper and can drives. Currently, Wright said, the trailers are plain and white. The only way people could know they are for collecting recyclables, he said, is if they get close enough to read the small signs taped to the door. “We’re looking at getting some lettering on the trailers,” said Wright. “We have the opportunity to do so much advertising without a lot of investment.” lease agreement with a farmer for nine tillable acres in Hale Township for 2013. The property is slated as a potential site for a new county maintenance shed that would replace sheds in Lester Prairie and Silver Lake. Nies suggested tabling the lease agreement until early January, saying he felt the Board needs to make a decision on whether it is going to build the maintenance shed. “We need to make a decision this year … while we’re all still here,” said Nies, alluding to the fact that there will be two new commissioners on the County Board in January. “We know the history of the issue,” Nies added. County Engineer John Brunkhorst said the farmer was looking for the lease agreement because he wanted to apply fall fertilizer. Wright suggested telling the farmer to hold off on fertilizing until a decision is made. In other highway business, Brunkhorst asked if the County Board would consider setting a spending threshold on replacing culverts without going to the County Board for permission. Brunkhorst said there will be more replacements in the future because of aging infrastructure, and the department could make replacements more quickly if it doesn’t have to go through the County Board. Currently, department heads can spend up to $1,000 for a capital project without getting County Board approval. County Attorney Mike Junge said that if the county raises that threshold, the policy will pertain to all departments, not just the highway department. Wright said he would like to discuss the topic at a workshop. Wright said that while he isn’t opposed to raising the threshold, he would like to see such expenditures publicly noted in the minutes or elsewhere “so people know we’re shopping around.” Wright also said the county needs to consider the impact on other departments. Nies also said that he feels it is important for the County Board to be aware of culvert replacements, no matter how small the project. “We want to know about it,” said Nies. “If we’re working on a road in my district, I’m going to get a call about it.”

African mission Continued from page 1
about five years ago. The conference has sponsored African visitors to Minnesota and, in return, has sent its own delegations — both lay people and pastors — to Africa. Hermodson-Olsen has helped welcome the African visitors to the local area — they have given presentations and met with local confirmands — but this is the first time he has been to Africa. But the opportunity came unexpectedly. About 10 days before the trip was set to begin, the pastor designated to represent Minnesota Valley had to bow out because of a family emergency. After looking for substitutes, the path was finally cleared about five days before departure for Hermodson-Olsen to take the trip. “I was real excited because of all I’ve learned about our partner in Africa,” said Hermodson-Olsen. “It was a chance to add to what I’ve already learned about their ministry and needs.” There was a similar trip for local conference members about two years ago, but it just did not work out for Hermodson-Olsen to go then. But those who went came back with a clear message — the best way to develop relationships is on a one-to-one basis. “It really solidified for those who went that this is a great thing (the partnership) we’re doing,” said Hermodson-Olsen. “Face-to-face encounters are just the best way to communicate and get to know each other.” Although people from the two synods and conferences have e-mailed and visited by phone, a first-hand experience was just too good to pass up. ***** Much of the Southwestern Minnesota Synod’s support in Africa is financial, although Hermodson-Olsen stresses that is not what the two synods want to base their relationship on. But the Minnesota synod has helped buy African school children uniforms so they can attend school, helped pay pastors’ salaries, helped a clinic that deals with HIV/AIDS patients and helped Africans, who have recently been able to acquire land with the abolition of the apartheid system, “re-learn how to farm,” HermodsonOlsen said. The effects of the apartheid system are still being felt, Hermodson-Olsen said. Apartheid separated the people in South Africa by race, and one manner of separation was to not allow black people to live in the cities, forcing them to the rural area, where they were allowed to live, but not own land. The poverty is still apparent, with a high unemployment rate and the devastation of disease (25 to 30 percent of native Africans have HIV or full-blown AIDS, and tuberculosis also is prevalent). With the fall of apartheid, the government is trying to make restitution by giving back land and providing some financial assistance, but there is still more to be done. ***** The first couple of days in Africa, the dozen Minnesota visitors were all together, helping celebrate the anniversary of a seminary. And they ended together, with the dedication of a new church on their last Sunday there. But in the intervening days, the participants went to their respective conferences, or circuits. The circuit Hermodson-Olsen visited, with the help of a school principal/guide/driver (appropriately named Moses) was in a hilly terrain with lots of trees, one of the primary crops in that area, which is of Zulu ancestry. “The goal was for me to see as many churches and meet as many people as I could,” said HermodsonOlsen. The circuit covers a large geographical area with several parishes, or groupings of churches. Most people live in small clusters of homes — not really enough to be called even a hamlet — and smaller villages. With the long history of apartheid, one would almost expect to encounter some bitterness toward white people, but Hermodson-Olsen said the exact opposite was true. “It was just amazing how open they were given their history,” Hermodson-Olsen said. “And there was just an attitude of appreciativeness … that here’s a white person coming into their churches and is willing to stay in their homes.” And they were willing to share their gifts with their visitor, including their rich history in music (“It’s absolutely beautiful,”) and their traditions and faith. But if he had to pick one highlight, Hermodson-Olsen said, it might be one that anyone on the planet could choose — the faces of the children. “There is just something about the face of a child,” he said. “Because even though they face great difficulties, there’s a sense of hope for the future, a happiness, that is just beautiful to see.”

After eventually managing to escape the orphanage, she sadly is caught and sent back by Officer Ward of the NYPD. Soon though, her luck improves. Billionaire Oliver Warbucks decides to invite an orphan over to his house for Christmas. His secretary Grace chooses Annie much to the chagrin of the cruel orphanage matron, Miss Hannigan. Oliver Warbucks and Annie quickly hit it off and he agrees to help Annie find her parents by putting up a $50,000 reward. Miss Hannigan’s brother, Rooster, and his girlfriend, Lily, pretend to be Annie’s parents by using information provided by Miss Hannigan. At the last minute, President Roosevelt intervenes to announce that the FBI has discovered that Annie’s parents are in fact, dead. In the end, Hannigan, Rooster and Lily are all arrested, and Annie is adopted by Warbucks.

Hutch to host tax reform town hall meeting Nov. 8
Gov. Mark Dayton’s tax reform initiative is to be discussed at town hall meeting with Revenue Commissioner Myron Frans in Hutchinson. The event is hosted by Hutchinson Mayor Steve Cook and begins at 7 p.m., Thursday, Nov. 8, in the Hutchinson Events Center, 1005 Highway 15 South. The town hall meeting will feature a short presentation by Commissioner Frans about Minnesota’s tax system, followed by questions and discussion with area residents, business leaders, legislators and local officials. Frans is seeking input on: • What fair taxation means to Minnesotans. • What we should look for in a good tax system. • How we can simplify Minnesota’s tax system. This town hall is just one of the many conversations Frans is having with Minnesotans to gather tax reform ideas for Gov. Dayton. Besides Hutchinson Mayor Cook, other local elected officials, area residents and local business owners are encouraged to attend to learn and share their ideas.

Larson said residents may also contact Waste Management for curbside pickup of larger items, such as appliances, furniture and electronics, at an additional fee of $20 per appliance, furniture or large electronic, or $10 for small electronics and $15 per yard for bulky items. Or Larson said, residents can continue to come to the city office for a tag to take their items to the yard waste site, at a reduced rate per item. Larson said the city also still has the option of scheduling a spring “clean-up” day in collaboration with Waste Management, if needed.

Veterans Day: It is a time to remember, reflect on sacrifices
Our view: There was no better way to show respect to our veterans than by voting
eterans Day, Nov. 11, is a time to pause and remember those who have fought and died to preserve the freedoms we so dearly cherish in this country. But it also should be a time to reflect on the veterans who came home, either to pick up their lives where they had left off, or who came back with physical and mental disabilities in sacrificing for the country. The latter live with their “sacrifices” every day of their lives. It seems every generation has gone to war with very few exceptions. It is the nature of the human race, and the nature of our constant fight to preserve our way of life. The World War II veterans are fast disappearing with the Korean War veterans right behind them. The Vietnam veterans are now into or reaching retirement age, and the Gulf War veterans are advancing into middle age. Time waits for no one. We want to commend the local veterans organizations for keeping the spirit of Veterans Day alive. The groups go to the area elementary schools to teach the Pledge of Allegiance to a new generation. Starting early is an excellent way to instill

patriotism. The high school hosts an annual Veterans Day program each year. This year is no exception. The Veterans Day program is set for 10 a.m., Monday, Nov. 12, at the high school gymnasium. The public is encouraged to attend. What better way to show you have not forgotten our veterans. Prior to this year’s election yesterday, the Minnesota Secretary of State’s Office issued unusual pins that were distributed by local veteran organizations. The pin read “Vote in honor of a veteran. My vote honors .... (fill in a name).” This editor honored his father, who was a combat veteran of World War II. It easily could have read a grandfather, a brother or sister, an uncle or son or daughter. It was a great way to keep veterans front and center in our thoughts as we went to the polls Tuesday. After all, one of the foundations of freedom that all these veterans served to protect was our right to vote. Hopefully, you all did your civic duty and went to the polls yesterday ... in honor of our veterans. — R.G.
Veterans Day: ‘God Bless America!’
Nov. 11, 1918, at exactly 11 a.m., representatives of the forces fighting World War I signed the armistice which brought that deadly conflict to an end. Up until 1954, when the name of the holiday was changed to Veterans Day, Armistice Day was observed as one of the top holidays in the United States. All schools, most cities and the nation had programs and observances of this important date. Now, as Americans have grown to regard national holidays as another excuse for a three-day break from work, less thought is given to why the date is observed and more importance is given to having a vacation. But it is important to observe these holidays. It is important to stop in our mad dash toward satisfying individual desires to pay homage to those who are now serving and those who have served in the past. Our brave men and women, all volunteers, put everything at risk so we can enjoy the blessings of liberty. It is important that all of us who are benefiting from the deeds and Our Founding Fathers came to these shores not seeking cradle-tograve security, but rather an opportunity to get ahead by one’s own blood, sweat and tears. Freedom, more than anything else, was the cornerstone upon which this republic was founded. So today, this week and on Nov. 11, let us take a few minutes to honor our veterans, those military personnel who served in the past and those currently battling to preserve this nation’s way of life. Let’s honor the living and also acknowledge the brave actions of those who gave their last full measure of devotion so those of us living in this great nation today — and those who will eventually be born and enjoy all that comes with being an American — are free. As many of our politicians end up, “God Bless America!” Chuck Warner, former owner/publisher of the Brownton Bulletin from 1953 to 1986, is a current member of the Brownton City Council.

commitment of these brave citizens to acknowledge our debts to them. Just this past week, we enjoyed the opportunity to take part in a national election. In the United States, it is the ballots, not the bullets, which determine who our leaders will be. Peoples from around the rest of the world would give a great deal if they could enjoy this freedom. This nation’s great Constitution guarantees we may hold beliefs contrary to those of our leaders and not only have these views, but be able to speak them.
Whether amendments pass or not, make passage more difficult
Our view: This year’s proposed amendments show how easy it is to change Constitution
hether the marriage and voter ID amendments pass or fail, it is time for the Minnesota Legislature to take a serious look at how amendments are approved in this state. With a simple majority now needed to pass an amendment, the process is too easy. Get one more vote than the opposition, and it becomes cemented into the Minnesota Constitution. It is that simple. To undo it, however, is far more difficult. What the Legislature needs to do is require a “super majority” for passage of any future constitutional amendments. How about a twothirds majority? That will require another amendment. Make it more difficult. Make amending the state Constitution more bipartisan. Require an amendment be more broad-based in its support throughout the state in order to pass. We should not alter the Constitution, which is a document of basic principles, without a lot more serious debate on the floor of the Legislature and throughout the state. The Minnesota Constitution should only be altered after careful thought, broad support from all parties and be good, solid proposals that

benefit the vast majority, not just a few. The two amendments proposed on this year’s ballot were blatant in their aims. They simply wanted to skirt the governor’s veto. That is partisan politics at its worst. Rather than sit down and work out a less-partisan proposal, Republicans opted to take their chances with the voters. Democrats have done the same thing in the past. If the outcome is a narrow margin of victory or defeat, that should be a clear signal it was not well thought out in the first place. There is a reason why it takes three-fourths of the states to pass a U.S. constitutional amendment. It is supposed to be very difficult. But if the measure is solid in its logic and purpose, it can be passed. The Prohibition Amendment (18th) being the exception. The 21st Amendment corrected that mistake. The same should be true in Minnesota. Voters, force your legislators to get back to legislating for the benefit of all Minnesotans, and not just for their party’s agenda. Legislating by amendment is not good leadership, and it is not good for Minnesota, either. — R.G.
Letters to Editor Need for more blood donors greater than ever
To the Editor: The final 2012 American Red Cross blood drive for the Glencoe community is scheduled for Wednesday, Nov. 28, from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. The location of the November drive has changed this year and will be held at the Glencoe City Center Ballroom – the same location it was held in August. The former location of the Panther Field House was not available to be used, as the new gym floor did not yet have a protective cover available for our use to prevent damage to the new floor by street shoes and moving equipment. The November blood drive is more crucial than usual this year. As of Oct. 30, due to Hurricane Sandy, the American Red Cross had to cancel nearly 300 blood drives along the East Coast, resulting in a loss of approximately 9,000 units of blood and platelets. This number is expected to rise dramatically since the storm made landfall, bringing with it flooding and widespread power outages. While Hurricane Sandy will decrease the number of people available to donate in the affected areas, hospital patients still need blood and platelets despite the weather. Every day, the Red Cross must collect more than 17,000 pints of blood for patients at more than 3,000 hospitals and transfusion centers across the country. Every two seconds, someone in the United States needs a blood transfusion. We are part of the North Central region of the American Red Cross. We provide blood products for 111 hospitals in Minnesota, Wisconsin and South Dakota. Now we are being called upon to help the patients in the areas affected by the storm. Because of the impact of this huge storm, it is essential that our upcoming blood drive meet or exceed its goal of 106 units. Previous donors will be contacted in the next several weeks by our volunteer callers to set up an appointment for Nov. 28. If you are not contacted or have not donated before, please contact our registration chairperson, Nelda, at 320-864-3475 to set up your appointment. Each blood drive, there are approximately 30 “no-shows,” those who make an appointment and for various reasons do not appear at the drive to donate blood. We need to turn that number around! Now more than ever, we need to meet or exceed our goal. “Walk-ins” are welcome, but be aware that walk-ins are fit into the schedule around pre-scheduled appointments, and you may be waiting for a while. Your help is needed now. Your effort can make a significant impact in someone’s life. A supply shortage means that blood may not be available when it’s needed most – maybe even affecting your family member or friend. As the American Red Cross motto says: “The need is constant. The gratification is instant. Give blood.” Thank you for responding to this blood drive and making an appointment. Charleen Engelmann ARC Glencoe community coordinator

Letters to Editor Fall season done, facility issues remain
To the Editor: The fall season at GlencoeSilver Lake (GSL) is coming to a close, with the fall musical still upon us during the next two weeks. We hope you get a chance to come and see one of the performances. It has been a great fall at GSL with countless e x a m p l e s Chris Sonju of success both in and outside the classroom. We look forward to continuing a great school year. The building topic is being discussed at the board level once again. As many of you may know, our kindergarten class size is large. This causes concern because to have lower classes sizes, there isn’t room in our current facilities to add an extra classroom. For this year, we hired an additional teacher to work with our kindergarten students. While we have only completed two months of school, we need to look at what we can do next year to address this concern. One idea that is going to be considered is to build an addition on to the Lincoln School that would house our ECFE (Early Childhood Family Education) and ECSE (Early Childhood Special Education) programs. This amount would be approximately $1.5 million. This section of the building project was scheduled to be built if we had a successful vote. As you know, the last two building project votes were both narrowly defeated. If the board decided to move forward with this plan, this addition would be paid for by a lease levy that would be board approved and added to our district member ’s property tax. It makes good sense because it is a part of the longrange facility plan of the district and potentially could be completed by the start of school in 2013. This would free up room at the current Helen Baker and Lakeside sites, thus helping with class sizes for at least a year or two. This then leads to the building project again and going back to the voters to ask for approval of our longrange building plan minus the ECFE/ECSE addition. I realize that for many, this potential vote would be a debated topic, with very good points on both sides. However, it is my hope that people will respect the purpose behind this project and the valid points on why the project is being run in the first place. This project will help us give our students the best possible and most flexible learning environment, and an environment where we can be innovative and creative in our teaching and learning because what matters is what is happening in the classrooms. Currently, our facilities limit us because of space. Our idea of bringing more grades together to have more opportunities to learn, having two campuses instead of three, and having a solid facility solution for a very long time is a great opportunity for our district. Much more on this in the weeks ahead, but for now, I welcome your thoughts on our plan for the immediate future. We have a great school at GSL. The technology advances that we have made and the new programs that are in place are truly making a difference as we seek continuous improvement as a school. Thank you in advance for your support of GSL and here’s to our kids!! Christopher D. Sonju Superintendent of Schools

Gruenhagen Drive open
Another piece of the Glencoe’s new industrial park was completed recently when Gruenhagen Drive was surfaced leading into the Midwest Porcine Recovery and Miromatrix Medical facility. Taking part in the ribbon-cutting ceremony were, from left, City Administrator Mark Larson; Dave Theis, owner of Midwest Porcine Recovery; City Council members Greg Copas and Dan Perschau; Dan Ehrke, Glencoe Area Chamber of Commerce president; Scott Marquardt, vice president of the Southwest Initiative Foundation; and Becky Graf and Sheila Murphy, both of Miller Manufacturing. Theis expressed his appreciation for the efforts to get the street constructed. He said his facility has potential for continued growth, and added he hoped to have the building completely occupied by the end of the year. When he opened Midwest Porcine in Glencoe, Theis said the goal was six employees, and it is currently up to 20. “Thanks for investing in the community,” Ehrke told Theis. “It’s a twoway street,” Theis replied.
On 4-1 vote, Council agrees to clear city trails this winter
By Lori Copler Staff Writer The Glencoe City Council voted 4-1 Monday to remove snow from its walking trails, including the new Buffalo Highlands trail from Morningside Avenue in Glencoe east to McLeod County Road 1. Council member Dan Perschau introduced the proposal, saying that he has received more “questions and comments” regarding snow removal on the trails than any other issue since he has been on the City Council. The proposal, and Perschau’s subsequent motion, drew sharp comments from Council member John Schrupp. “Why don’t you just throw all the sidewalks in there right away, too, Dan?” Schrupp asked. In particular, Schrupp said, “the trails” in Precinct 2 “which are commonly referred to as sidewalks.” Perschau said he sees a distinction between trails and sidewalks. Perschau also requested that the city crews “log hours so we can come up with specific data on the cost” for snow removal on the trails. Park Superintendent Mike Drew said the priority for snow removal will be streets, so “it might be 24 hours” before the city gets to the task of removing snow on the trails. Schrupp also contended that snow removal on trails, particularly on the Buffalo Highlands Trail, may cause issues with snowmobiles. Mayor Randy Wilson asked if there was enough room for snowmobiles to go to one side of the trail or the other. Drew said that there may be a few tight spots, but a lot of brush had also been removed to accommodate Glencoe Light & Power ’s transmission line project. Perschau contended that the proposal had drawn enough public comment that “I think we have to try this.” Schrupp asked that the snow removal costs “be charged directly to the park improvement fund.” But City Administrator Mark Larson said that the park improvement fund can only be used for capital improvements, not for operational costs. Wilson suggested keeping an eye on the cost. “We can always adjust later,” Wilson said. Schrupp voted against the motion. In other business, the City Council: • Heard that the Cemetery Board had approved $10,000 toward the purchase of computer software for the digitizing of cemetery records. Larson said the software will allow people to search for records over the Internet, thereby helping reduce lengthy visits to the city offices for paper searches. Larson also said the actual cost of the software will run $14,000 to $15,000, and service organizations will be approached for donations to help make up the difference. • Set its annual truth-intaxation hearing for Dec. 3 at 7:15 p.m. • Agreed to not require a city non-voting member on the Glencoe Regional Health Services (GRHS) Board of Directors. Wilson said the position was created when the hospital and clinic were in the merger process, and that is probably no longer needed. Jon Braband, chief executive officer of GRHS, said two director terms will expire soon, and the current nonvoting member will likely move into a voting member seat. • Set the canvassing board for election results for Tuesday, Nov. 13, at 4:30 p.m.
Solid waste director corrects statement
To the Editor: I respectfully request a retraction or correction be made public to your readers, relative to your article “City likes what it sees in Hutch leaf pick up” (Nov. 1). Specifically, on page 2, states that “the county has indicated to the city that it plans to stop funding the recycling programs in the county in the next two years.” The statement is simply not true and sends the wrong message to the residents of Glencoe and McLeod County. The McLeod County Board of Commissioners has informed all cities that they are unable to subsidize the 12year-old yard waste sites for collection, grinding and hauling to Creek Side, located in Hutchinson. The County Board will continue to partially fund the municipal yard waste sites until 2014 and allow cities to work with Creek Side. The County Board will use the estimated $100,000 for other recycling programs that will be beneficial to all residents of McLeod County. It also should be published that McLeod County has subsidized all municipal recycling programs. Not one penny has been used from the county general fund to fund county recycling programs. The money generated from landfill fees has allowed the County Board to establish and provide, to include but not limited to recycling collection, drop boxes, township recycling sheds, household hazardous waste, e-waste, appliance, tire and mattress recycling. The County Board has made the commitment to fund all programs using landfill fees rather than imposing a solid waste fee on the property tax statements, as other counties already have. The $1 per month per household fee is a city-imposed fee and is not part of the McLeod County recycling program. The fee has been labeled a recycling fee and/or environmental fee which the city imposed. The residents of Glencoe need to know and understand, it is not imposed not supported by the McLeod County Board of Commissioners. Ed Homan McLeod County Solid Waste director Editor’s note: Mr. Homan is absolutely correct that the county’s action to phase out its subsidy to cities involves only the municipal compost sites. We regret the error. The city of Glencoe, however, also is in discussions with Waste Management about a one-sort recycling program. The county currently only offers a five-sort program through its hauler West Central Sanitation of Willmar. That has added to the confusion over the recycling programs.

This Veterans Day, thank a veteran!
To the Editor: Veterans Day is a day to remember all veterans who have served and are serving our country in the Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Coast Guard and Air Force. They are always helping and some have risked their lives for us. They have endured many wars, such as World War I, World War II, Korea, Vietnam, Afghanistan and Iraq wars. We can honor them every day by putting up the American flag, saying the Pledge of Allegiance and participating in veteran works and activities. When we go to any sporting event, professional or high school, we sing the “Star Spangled Banner.” Almost everyone in the United States knows the National Anthem. We can celebrate great days like Veterans Day, Independence Day, Flag Day and Memorial Day to honor our veterans. We all have special ways to say “thank you” to our military. They have braved many bloody battles and fought for this country. We all need to take some time to thank all who have protected our country. On Veterans Day, thank a vet!

100 Years Ago
Nov. 8, 1912 O.C. Conrad, Editor The location for the Milwaukee Railroad passing through this village was definitely decided last Friday. The new tracks will be laid about 200 feet north of the present depot site and continuing west, making an entirely new grade, crossing Lake Addie at a point about 700 feet west of the current grade. This means the removal of the residences of F.E. Krueger, William Lindeman, William Kreie, Mrs. Hellmer, John Zechar and Henry Wisdorf. It also means the cutting of a 300-foot strip of timber which heretofore has been a great protection to the village from a cold northwest wind. The fine farm home of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Anderson on the west shore of the lake is unfortunately right on the line of the survey and it is very likely that every building on the place will have to be moved, destroying two fine orchards and the greater part of the natural timber surrounding the home. Friday evening of last week, the pupils of the high school were delightfully entertained by Mr. Granger at the hospitable home of Mrs. Knoerr. Ghosts, goblins, gypsies and all sorts of Halloween spirits greeted them, foretold the future and unveiled the past. The rooms were decorated appropriately and seasonable refreshments were served. At a late hour the young people went home, voting our principal a royal host. Through an oversight, we neglected to mention last week that Louis Wilhelm, residing two miles south of town, has decided to install a sorghum mill, which he will operate next fall. For a number of years past, farmers in the area have refused to raise sorghum for the simple reason that very few cane mills exist in this part of the county. There is no question that there is good money in raising sorghum, and with a new and modern mill in this vicinity, farmers should plan now to put in a patch next spring.

Nov. 4, 1937 Percy L. Hakes, Editor A new business establishment opened in Brownton Monday of this week when Ernest Rose opened up a beer parlor in Fred Karstens’ building, which was formerly occupied by the Brownton Liquor Store. Ernie is not a new man in the business here, as he formerly worked at the liquor store and also was in business with John Klitzke for a short time. Ernie says he will operate a first-class beer parlor and also has set up a pool table. He will also serve various kinds of sandwiches, pop, candies, cigars and cigarettes. Herman Schwarze, 73, died Oct. 31. A native of Germany, he came to America in 1881 and made his home in Sumter. He leaves to mourn his wife, Emma (Klopfleisch) Schwarze, three sons, Arthur, Wilbur and Ernest, a daughter-in-law, and various other relatives and friends.
three-way race for Stewart mayor in Tuesday’s election. Scholla garnered 146 votes, while challengers Quentin Klucas and Willie VanDuynhoven had 57 and 59 votes respectively, according to unofficial results. In Brownton, incumbent Mayor Carl Wachter and Council Member Dennis Sweely, both running unopposed, were re-elected, and write-in candidate Norman Schwarze was elected to an open council seat for which there were no filings. Two Brownton Elementary School teachers earned spots in the latest edition of “Who’s Who Among America’s Teachers.” They were fourth-grade teacher Sharon Serfling and secondgrade teacher Sandy Holtz. Both were nominated for the honor by former students. For the second year in a row, the area was hit by snow over the Halloween weekend, although this year’s snowfall of five to eight inches is quite shy of last year’s record 28-inch snowfall.

Nov. 8 proclaimed ‘Helen Novak Day’ Healthy Community
Glencoe Mayor Randy Wilson declared Nov. 8, 2012, as “Helen Novak Day” in the city of Glencoe when Mrs. Nowak celebrates her 100th birthday. Wilson presented the proclamation several days early, on Nov. 5, at her home at Grand Meadows Senior Living. Helen (Lano) Novak was born in Browerville on Nov. 8, 1912, to Helen and Henry Lano, the youngest of five children. Her family moved to Minneapolis when she was in seventh grade, and she graduated from John Marshall High School in 1930. After graduation, she was employed by Foster Publications in Minneapolis. When the company relocated to Greenwich, Conn., she went with. While Helen was working and living out East, she married Tom Novak. The Novaks were united in marriage on her birthday, Nov. 8, 1938, at St. Patrick’s Cathedral in New York City. Shortly after the couple married, they moved to Glencoe, where Tom took over his father, Charles Novak’s business, running the Oriel Theatre. The Novaks’ marriage was blessed with three children, Charles, the late Nancy, and Tom. After the children were all of school age, Helen went to work for Green Giant as a receptionist. She retired from Green Giant in 1965. Helen has five grandsons and seven great-grandchildren. A member of St. Pius X Church, Helen also has been a devoted volunteer to the Glencoe community for numerous years, volunteering at Glencoe Regional Health Services Gift Shop and longterm care and the Red Cross. In fact, Helen volunteered up until she moved into Grand Meadows Senior Living in 2010, at the age of 98! Some of Helen’s lifelong hobbies include reading, playing cards, traveling, bowling and golf. And Helen has accomplished something many golfers only dream of — on Aug. 23, 1970, she got a hole in one on the sixth hole at the Glencoe Country Club! When asked what the secret to a long, healthy life is, Helen responded, “Exercise and stay active!” Grand Meadows Community Life Coordinator Sara Brown added, “This woman constantly amazes me. Not only does Helen continue to enjoy reading and playing cards, but Helen also enjoys Wii bowling and she attends chair yoga class. Her drive for life and competitive nature is admirable.”

Blood needed because of Sandy, holiday season
The holiday season is just around the corner, and the American Red Cross asks everyone to support its mission by giving something meaningful — hope for those in need. A blood donation is a gift that doesn’t cost a thing. Two county blood drives are scheduled for November. The first is at the Lester Prairie City Hall on Monday, Nov. 26, from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. The other is at the Glencoe City Center on Wednesday, Nov. 28, from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. Recently, Superstorm Sandy forced the cancellation of hundreds of blood drives along the East Coast, resulting in a shortfall of thousands of donations. While blood drive operations are being restored in the affected areas, the need for blood donations continues. Blood donors have generously stepped up to help in the aftermath of the storm, and the Red Cross reminds eligible donors to continue their support by scheduling an appointment to give blood. There may be no greater gift to give this year than one that can help disaster victims, like those of Sandy. Another way to help people affected by disasters like Hurricane Sandy is to make a financial donation to support Red Cross relief efforts. Contributions help enable the Red Cross to provide shelter, food, emotional support and other assistance. Visit redcross.org or call 1-800-RED CROSS for more information. Text “REDCROSS” to 90999 to make a $10 donation. Contributions also may be sent to a local Red Cross chapter.

Maurice (Anderson) Pike, 96, Glencoe
A memorial celebration for Maurice (Anderson) Pike, 96, of Glencoe, formerly of Missoula, Mont., will be held at a later date. Mrs. Pike died Friday, Nov. 2, 2012, at her home in Glencoe. Maurice Anderson was born May 13, 1916, in Brigham City, Utah, to Leslie Maurice Pike Howard and Theo Ellen (Stocking) Anderson. She was the oldest of four children. In 1928, the family moved to Pocatello, Idaho, and in 1932 (at age 16), the family moved to Salt Lake City, Utah. In 1933, the family moved east to Omaha, Neb. She graduated from Omaha High School in June 1934. It was during this time she met and fell in love with a neighbor, Charles Harlan Pike. The two eloped and were married in Atlantic, Iowa, on June 14, 1934. Their marriage was blessed with three children, Blaine Harlan, Terri (Denney) and Scott E. The Pikes lived in Omaha until 1937, when they moved to Pocatello, Idaho. Mrs. Pike was baptized and confirmed at Trinity Episcopal Church in Pocatello in 1947. Shortly thereafter, the family moved to Arco, Idaho, (Naval Proving Grounds) where Mr. Pike was an employed as the civilian fire chief of the base. In 1949 NPG closed, and the family moved to Blackfoot, Idaho, and from 1951-55 the family lived in Chubbuck, Tyhee, and Pocatello, Idaho. They moved to Billings, Mont., in 1955, where Mr. Pike launched a career in auctioneering, livestock journalism and radio broadcasting.

She retired from IDS in 1982 and served as a volunteer with St. Vincent Hospital and the Low Vision Clinic in Billings for 14 years. She later served as a volunteer with Community Hospital in Missoula, Mont. In 2002, she moved from Billings to Missoula and resided at the Village Senior Residence until 2011, when she moved to Glencoe. During her residence in Billings, Mrs. Pike was a member of St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, Daughters of the Nile and Moss Agate Chapter No. 126, Order of the Eastern Star. She and her husband were founding members of the Billings Banjo Band, which performed in the Billings area and at music festivals in the Pacific Northwest until the late 1990s.

Obituaries Anthony R. Albers, 87, of Glencoe
A Mass of Christian Burial for Anthony Raymond Albers, 87, of Glencoe, was held Wednesday, Oct. 31, at the Church of St. Pius X in Glencoe. The Rev. Anthony Stubeda officiated. Mr. Albers died S a t u r d a y, Oct. 27, 2012, at Ridgeview Anthony Medical Center in Albers Waconia. The organist was Mary Ann Thalmann. The song leader was Shari Templin, and soloist Jodana Ama Albers sang “Amazing Grace” and soloist Lawrence Biermann sang “Now the Light Has Gone Away.” Other musical selections included “Here I Am, Lord,” “On Eagle’s Wings,” “Song of Farewell” and “Prayer of St. Francis.” Pallbearers were Fern Albers, Garth Albers, Gary Albers, Chris Larson, Corey Larson, Jodana Ama Albers, Kelcey Albers, Kaitlyn Raye Albers and Ian Anthony Albers. Interment was in the Glencoe Catholic Cemetery. Mr. Albers was born Nov. 23, 1924, in Glencoe, the youngest of seven children of Herman and Theresia (Adams) Albers. He was baptized as an infant, and later received the sacraments of eucharist and confirmation in the Catholic faith at Saints Peter and Paul Catholic Church in Glencoe. He received his education in Glencoe and was a graduate of Stevens Seminary High School with the class of 1942. On June 14, 1947, Mr. Albers was united in marriage to Muriel Winter at Saints Peter and Paul Catholic Church in Glencoe. This marriage was blessed with four children, Antonia, Fern, Garth and Gary. The couple made their home near Glencoe. The Albers shared nearly 59 years of marriage before Mrs. Albers died on Feb. 1, 2006. Mr. Albers was hard working, which started already when his father died tragically when he was only 8 years old. One of his favorite things to do was hunt pheasants and quite often his mother would ask him to shoot a couple of pheasants for supper. He owned and operated a farm southeast of Glencoe and that occupied most of his time, but he always found time for his faith. Mr. Albers was a faithful member of the Church of St. Pius X in Glencoe, serving there as an altar boy, usher, part of the Men’s Group, and was a honorary lifetime member of the Knights of Columbus. He was a charter member of the Glencoe FFA chapter and a co-captain of the Glencoe football team. Mr. Albers enjoyed playing cards, hunting, and going for drives with Muriel. He had a great sense of humor, never complained and was selfless. His family was his priority and he especially cherished the time spent with his family. Survivors include his children, Fern Albers of St. Louis Park, Garth (Peggy) Albers of Deer Creek, and Gary (Chellie) Albers of Cologne; grandchildren, Christopher Larson (special friend, Tracy Trnka), Corey Larson (special friend, Tashina), Jodana Ama Albers, Kelcey Albers, Kaitlyn Raye Albers, and Ian Anthony Albers; great-grandchildren, Olivia and Santee; step-grandchildren, David, Ashley and Justin/Desiree; step-great-grandchildren, Brent, Brenden, Hailey, Ayden, Dylan and Victor; step-great-great-grandchild, Adele; brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law, Orville Winter, Kenneth Boerner, Monica Albers and Lila Albers; as well as nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

“Like” the Lord?!
A good word or referral has always been a good thing. So in our social media world today, people and businesses encourage you to “LIKE” their pages in order to get more positive recognition and thus build a trustworthy reputation. How many “LIKES” do you think the Lord Jesus would receive? In Psalm 22, King David had nothing but “LIKES” to give for the Lord Jesus - a long time before He was born. According to God’s promise, David knew that Jesus would come into the world and suffer on the cross for his sins and for the sins of the whole world, including your sins and my sins. For that reason, David “LIKED” the Lord Jesus and honored His name before all the people of Israel. He encouraged his fellow Israelites to “LIKE” and praise the name of the Lord. Unfortunately, in our society, Jesus doesn’t get the praise and “LIKES” that He deserves. People feel that following Him cramps their style. Individuals push Him aside like an outdated history book. In the name of political correctness, Jesus Christ is seen as too offensive. Unfortunately, those who do this are missing out on the benefit Jesus came to secure – paying for their sins and the sins of the world. It is a big mistake to not “LIKE” Jesus! Regardless of what others do, I pray that you “LIKE” the Savior even more and may you encourage others to do the same. He is worthy of our trust, our faith and our lives of undivided love and service. Psalm 22:22-23, “I will declare your name to my brothers; in the congregation I will praise you. You who fear the Lord, praise Him!” Hebrews 13:15, “Through Jesus, therefore, let us continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise – the fruit of lips that confess His name.”

Still can landscape in November
Those wishing to have a landscape that is thriving next year could work on some things yet this fall. Although we have had numerous frosts, the ground is still not frozen, and there is ample opportunity to work on November home landscape tasks. Many of these tasks will help your plants to overwinter and be healthier in 2013. Winter protection for newly planted and smooth barked trees and shrubs is helpful for their development. Tender-barked trees need rodent protection and sun scald protection/tree guards. That stretchy tree wrap is no longer recommended. Use plastic tubes with ventilation holes or tie boards to the south-southeast side of the tree. Hardware cloth cylinders will keep voles and rabbits from chewing up shrubs. Have the tasks associated with smooth barked trees and shrubs done by Thanksgiving. Newly planted as well as young trees and shrubs should have already been mulched by this time. Try mulching with woodchips or shredded bark to allow you to continue watering later into the season. If you haven’t mulched those trees yet, be sure to do it in the near future. Evergreens should be wa-

tered late into the season to avoid moisture stress before they go into dormancy. We cannot always rely on winter snowfall to help insulate perennial plants. Useful and effective mulches include five or six inches of whole or shredded leaves, partially decomposed compost, marsh hay, ground cornstalks, pine needles, straw, and evergreen boughs. Although woodchips and shredded bark are excellent mulches, they are better used for covering the soil between plants where it can be left undisturbed throughout the year. The goal is to protect the plants from the extreme cold temperatures as well as the alternate freezing and thawing that takes place. The alternate freezing and thawing leads to lifting and heaving of the plants and it ultimately destroys the root systems. Mulch also will keep spring flowering bulbs from emerg-

Election/dinner meeting
The McLeod Chapter of Thrivent Financial held its annual election/dinner meeting on Sunday, Oct 21. Attended by 152, this event was held at First Evangelical Lutheran Church in Glencoe. Chapter board members presented a review of 2012, highlighting educational seminars, social activities, sponsorships and available Thrivent programs. This year, the McLeod Chapter provided “Care Abounds in Communities” supplemental funds of $24,890. These funds supplemented more than 50 fund raisers (approximately 11,000 volunteer hours) members conducted to assist individuals, groups and their communities. Attendees brought food and monetary donations for the McLeod Emergency Food Shelf. The 2013 chapter board election results are Cindy Eggersgluess, president; the Rev. Ron Mathison, vice president; Jerry Haag, records director; Marilyn Karsten, financial director; Dale Maus, assistant financial director; Kathleen Ave-Lallemant, communications director; Annette Zimmerman, special adviser; and RoxAnne Lauer, leader-at large. Thrivent Financial is a faithbased membership organization with approximately 4,000 members in McLeod County.
ing too early in the spring, which can lead to spring frost killing the bulbs. Apply mulches to perennial flower beds and bulbs as the soil begins to freeze. If time is not on your side, mulches can be applied after snow to assist the snow with insulating the plants. Be sure to get the mulching done by early winter so it is useful in preventing the alternate freezing and thawing. Avoid the temptation of mulching while cleaning out flower beds. Mulching too early can encourage growth of the plants that will lessen their ability to come back strong next spring. In the spring, be sure to remove mulches to avoid crown rot and other fungus problems on your plants. If removing early in the spring, keep watching the weather to avoid the late season frost on your plants. You may need to recover your perennial flower beds or bulbs if the weather outlook includes freezing temperatures. Other November tasks include cleaning up garden debris and structures and cutting back perennials. You may leave some perennials, such as stonecrop/sedum for winter interest, but anything left over winter can be a bigger chore to clean up in the spring. Rake up and remove windfall fruits. If you don’t plan to use them, compost them or throw them in the trash. On home lawns, be sure not to have clumps of leaves or other material. Shredded leaves will not be a problem, but excessive material could cause potential problems. ***** Upcoming educational events” • “What is a Fair and Profitable Farmland Rental Agreement?” McLeod County Fairgrounds Commercial Building, Wednesday, Nov. 14 9:30 a.m.; also at the Meeker County Courthouse, Community Room A & B, Friday, Nov. 16, at 10 a.m. • 2013 Crop Management Input Seminar, Hutchinson Event Center, Tuesday, Dec. 4.
