GSL School Board OKs 2013-14 levy with 3.7% decrease
By Rich Glennie Editor The Glencoe-Silver Lake School Board held its Truth in Taxation hearing Monday night in the board room at Lincoln Jr. High, and later that evening approved its 2012 tax levy, payable in 2013, for the 2013-14 school year. That levy amounts to $2,323,633, or a decrease of 3.765 percent, or about $91,000 less than 2012-13. Michelle Sander, school district business manager, methodically went through the process of determining school funding, tax levies and setting budgets. The Truth in Taxation hearing, held prior to the regular December School Board meeting, was attended by a handful of people. The majority of the tax levy is for the general fund ($1,154,447), but other components include: • The equity/transition levy ($179,328). • The net capacity levy for operating capital, unemployment insurance, the Safe School program, the career and technical program, health and safety projects, deferred maintenance work, building lease, debt service adjustment and abatement adjustments ($596,211). • Community service for community education, Early Childhood Family Education, home visiting, school-age care and abatement adjustments ($163,130). • General debt service (voter approved) including building bond debt for the former McLeod West district ($230,259). Schools are different than cities, counties and townships, Sander said, because the school’s fiscal year begins July 1 rather than on a calendar year. She said there is little a school board controls in the budgeting process. She said an assessor determines property values, the state Legislature determines the formula for taxes, the county auditor calculates the property taxes and the Department of Education comes up with the levy documents. Sander said there are two basic parts to determining the tax levy, that part of the budget that is generated by local property taxes — property valuations and student counts. Once the tax levy is set, Sander said, it cannot be adjusted, but the budget, which is usually approved by the board

The first snowfall for the winter season in Minnesota dumped nearly a foot of snow on Silver Lake this past weekend. Plows were out Saturday and Sunday, clearing the roads, while residents braved the below zero temperatures on Monday to clear the sidewalks and their driveways. Light snow is expected for Saturday.

Basketball teams OK’d to help cancer fund raiser
By Rich Glennie Editor The Glencoe-Silver Lake basketball teams will be doing something a little different this season — they also will be involved in fund-raising to fight cancer while competing at two scheduled games. Head girls’ basketball coach Cullen Ober, along with players Clarissa Ober and Kelly Beneke, attended Monday’s night GSL School Board meeting to ask permission to participate in the fund raisers. The first will be doubleheader girls’ and boys’ basketball games against Norwood Young America on Jan. 12, with the aim to raise funds for breast cancer research. The other is a “Pink Out” in a girls’ basketball game at Orono on Jan. 18. The proceeds from the NYA doubleheader will go toward the Tim Orth Foundation and the Susan G. Komen Walk For the Cure. “It is an excellent opportunity,” for student involvement, said GSL Superintendent Chris Sonju. He said it was similar to the Randy Shaver Tackle Cancer Night event held during a football game earlier this school year. But Sonju said any additional fund raisers added to the schedule need School Board approval. “It’s awesome they’re doing this,” Sonju said. In other matters, the School Board: • Accepted the audit for the 2011-12 fiscal year. Kim Pelzel Helberg of Clifton Larson Allen LLP presented the audit report, which indicated the district had a general fund balance of $5.9 million as of June 30, 2012. The unassigned fund balance equals about 30 percent of the general fund, she added. Helberg said GSL is no different than many other districts who have high fund balances, “due to the uncertainty of state aid.” She said it also “helps weather the tough economy.” Generally, it is recommended school districts have a fund balance minimum of 8 percent to 16 percent, she said. “All (GSL) funds are healthy,” Helberg said. “Everything looks good.” She also praised Michelle Sander, GSL business manager, for having one of the best financial reports she has worked with. • Heard a request from Teri Windschitl to take Spanish students on an educational trip to Peru in 2014. She took students to Costa Rica last summer, and GSL students went to Europe in 2010. She called the benefits and experiences of the trips for the students as “tremendous.” The nine-day trip also includes a half credit toward graduation. The estimated cost per student is about $3,000, and there is no cost to the school district. • Heard that the United

Bayerl’s commissioner career began with friend’s dying wish
By Lori Copler Staff Writer cLeod County 1st District Commissioner Ray Bayerl’s 22-1/2-year political career was born with the death of a friend. Bayerl, of rural Winsted, is stepping down as a county commissioner Dec. 31. Before being elected to the County Board in 1990, Bayerl’s only experience with a governing body was being a member of the parish council at Holy Trinity in Winsted. But in 1989, his friend Lawrence Fiecke, who was then the 1st District commissioner, was battling cancer. Bayerl used to drive him to his treatments. “We used to talk about what was going on during those drives,” said Bayerl. When Fiecke’s condition worsened to a point in which he was hospitalized, Bayerl would visit. Visits were limited, and Bayerl recalls that during one such visit, he was
Ray Bayerl waiting in the hallway when Fiecke’s daughter emerged from his room. She told Bayerl that Fiecke had stated that if Fiecke was unable to fill out his term, he wanted Bayerl to replace him. “That was really kind of a turning point for me,” said Bayerl. After Fiecke’s death, a special election to fill out his
term was set for June 1990. Bayerl won the seat held by his friend. Were the succeeding 22 years enjoyable? “Well, they’ve certainly been interesting,” said Bayerl. “There has been both good and bad, but I think the good outweighed the bad.” A continuing issue over the years has been the county’s building needs, said Bayerl. Early in his career, there was a proposal to expand the current courthouse in Glencoe. “That would have left us landlocked,” said Bayerl, who added that he appreciates the recent move of the Veterans Services Office to the North Complex building, giving veterans handicap-accessible access to the office. A 2007 proposal for a $22.5 million, 95-bed jail, which the County Board ultimately rejected, was probably

Come and enjoy the festivities at the auditorium! Continued from page 1 States Department of Agriculture has changed its school lunch rules. “The USDA took enough heat,” Sander said of the changes that were announced recently. She said details are still sketchy, but the changes involved an increase in meats and grains portions per week into the school lunches. But she said there is no change in the calories offered the students. Sander said the changes will give food service “more flexibility in menu planning.” • Heard that the district is working with students walking to school about train safety and with Twin Cities & Western Railroad, which has held up some buses as it switches rail cars. • Approved a new three-year contract with Sander as business manager. The new contract starts July 1 and includes a total package increase of 5.8 percent over the three years, or about 1.95 percent each year. Board member Jamie Alsleben said Sander has brought “great strength to the district, not only in knowing the numbers, but articulating in a way that simplifies that so they (the public) can understand.” • Heard that a GSL blood drive will be held from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., Wednesday, Dec. 12. Chantelle Wolff of Student Government said the goal is to collect 60 units of blood at the drive. • Heard the annual geography bee is scheduled for 7 p.m., Monday, Jan. 7. • Hired Tricia Schilling as a 9-hour-per-week paraprofessional in the Early Childhood Special Education program at Lakeside, a new position. • Accepted the resignation of Deb Rudy as a special education paraprofessional at the high school; Brea Wiblemo as head cheerleader coach; and Lisa Eischens as junior high gymnastics coach. • Approved the following extracurricular assignments: Rebecca Haddad as seventhgrade girls’ basketball coach, replacing Mallory Godel, who resigned. Dave Prehn as eighth-grade boys’ basketball coach, new position. Carrie Chap and Mona Ewald, co-coaches for cheerleaders. Jeff Delwiche, junior high wrestling coach, replacing Brian Heimerl, who resigned. • Accepted the following donations: For the Close-Up program, Silver Lake Lions, $250; Silver Lake Knights of Columbus, $25; Glencoe Lions Club, $50; Silver Lake American Legion Auxiliary to Post 141, $100; and New Auburn VFW Post 7266, $500. GFWC of Silver Lake, $200 for Lakeside library books. New Auburn VFW Post 7266, $500 for GSL FFA chapter. PRI Robotics Inc., $500 for new robotics club. The School Board also was notified that Medtronics donated $6,500 to sponsor the new GSL robotics team. The donation will cover the entry fee and materials, according to a report by Paul Sparby, high school principal.
Remembering Rick Thiemann, who was killed in an automobile accident on a snowy, icy December night in 1982. On December 13 it will be 30 years since that tragic night. You left an enormous void in all of our lives! We are thankful for the years you had with us – the memory of how you filled our lives with joy and laughter keeps our families going! When our two families get together on December 13, I’m sure many wonderful memories and stories will be recalled by all of us. You would be so happy and proud of the three little grandchildren you now have! You have been greatly missed over the years and will be in our hearts and thoughts especially this day!

Bayerl Continued from page 1
the biggest issue Bayerl faced in his career. Bayerl said he feels the County Board received some “misinformation” about the need for the additional space for the county’s 32-bed jail. After the project was abandoned, the County Board has been receiving weekly reports on the jail’s occupancy, which averages in the low 20s, said Bayerl. “Looking back, I think it was a good decision,” Bayerl said of abandoning the proposal. “If we hadn’t made that decision, this county wouldn’t have the zero debt and the healthy reserves it has now.” In fact, Bayerl said, leaving office with the county not having any debt “is probably as rewarding as anything we’ve accomplished.” But even more rewarding, Bayerl said, was being able to help people. “If I was able to help people out, to get answers to their questions … well, I really enjoyed that,” Bayerl said. Bayerl, a retired farmer, said he has no immediate plans for his retirement from his second job, that of county commissioner. “We’d like to do some traveling, but other than that, we have no big plans,” he said.

The 12-hour journey home: part 1
December seems to be a busy month with all sorts of days set aside for Christmas shopping, baking Christmas cookies, holiday work parties, seeing all of the Christmas lights, and, of course, those traditional family get-togethers that everybody stresses over and something always seems to go wrong. The Schauer family had one of those stressful days a few Christmases ago, and it was so full of mishaps, that I have to tell the story in two weeks’ worth of columns. Trust me. I could probably fill up a full newspaper page about everything that happened that day. So here goes. It was the day before Christmas Eve in 2008, and we were all getting ready to leave to spend Christmas in Minnesota. As Mom would say, we were in “normal” Schauer mode — much to do and a short window of time to do it. We had to pack for a week, finish wrapping Christmas presents, and clean up the house. Dad had to finish up repairs at his small engine shop, get to the bank for an appointment at 11 a.m. and snowblow the driveway — all before 2 p.m., which was the planned departure time to head to Silver Lake. Alex and Mitchell had school until 1:30 that afternoon, and I was to run errands in the morning, pick up and deposit Nick’s paycheck for him, while he stayed home to clean with Mom and pack up the truck. The first delay started when the bank called Dad and pushed back the appointment for after lunch, and Mom had to be at the appointment also to sign papers, so Nick and I were left home to finish packing and cleaning.

Church News The Travel Section
By Alyssa Schauer
Then the plan was to leave between 3 and 4 p.m. I had forgotten to pick up Nick’s check, so he headed into town to deposit it, and Mom and Dad were just leaving the shop at 3 p.m., so then our departure time was pushed back to about 5 p.m. Alex had then told us he had to work at the grocery store that night until 10:30 p.m. because he forgot to ask off, so I decided to stay and wait and drive separately with him, while the rest of the family left earlier. As soon as Dad got home, he and Nick started up the snowblower to clear the driveway, when a tire chain fell off. After Dad fixed that and got going, the starter on the snowblower went out, and he was able to replace it with a new one, before the gear on that starter flew off and the snowblower died once more. Dad gripped the steering wheel of the snowblower and his eyes bulged as he let out a loud crazed laugh that sent Nick running into the house. Dad was losing it. After another repair, Dad was able to get the driveway plowed before moving onto the next chore. Dad and a cautious Nick headed into the garage to check the oil and fluids in the truck to get it ready for the journey to Minnesota, only to find a leaking radiator. Dad got his tools out to fix the problem, and the goal now was to leave by 6 p.m. when we got a call from Alex. He was at the Shopko complex in Eau Claire, picking up a video game before going to work when he locked his keys in his car, and now, he was running late for work. Needless to say, Mom and Dad were less than pleased. Alex said his spare key was on Dad’s truck keys and asked me to drive the key to him. So I headed out to the garage where the truck was running while Dad and Nick were working on it. Unfortunately, the key remote device on Dad’s set of keys had a low battery, and before I could open the driver’s door, the low battery remote device autolocked Dad’s truck doors. So, yes, the truck is still running, with doors locked and Alex’s spare key on Dad’s keys in the ignition. After searching through the junk drawers in the house and on all sets of keys, Dad’s spare key was nowhere to be found, but Nick managed to pry open the back window of the truck, turn it off and get the keys. It was now 5:30 p.m., and as I look through Dad’s set of keys, I find that Alex’s spare is not, in fact, on the key ring. You can imagine the stresslevels in the house and in the garage at this time as I call Alex to scream at him that his key is not where he thought. He then remembered it was on his dresser in his room, and Mom and I took the van and rushed to Eau Claire to bring the key to him, only to find it was not the spare key for his car!

That is down from the 2011-12 budget of $18.17 million in revenues and $18.42 in expenses. Sander said salaries and benefits account for 68 percent of the school budget. “We’re a people business,” Sander said. “That’s what we do.” Larry Gutknecht, a district resident in attendance, asked about the planned new addition onto the Lincoln Jr. High. “Is that (approach) going to be the norm from now on?” He said it will be more expensive doing it a piece at a time rather than passing a larger building bond referendum in the first place. “Yes and no,” Sander replied. She said she did not see the board’s action of approving the $1.5 million addition as “the norm” in the future. She said it will be a School Board decision, but she said it is still likely the School Board “will look to pass a big bond down the road. “Piecemeal is not usually the way to do it,” Sander added. “But again, that’s a School Board decision.” The addition to Lincoln is for the Early Childhood Family Education/Early Childhood Special Education (ECFE/ECSE) and School Readiness programs. “It will free up at least one classroom at Helen Baker and free up one classroom at Silver Lake (where ECSE is located),” Sander said. “It gives us some time,” she
said of future space needs planning. The ECFE/ECSE project is expected to be completed “about this time next year.” Sander said the School Board opted for a lease levy to fund the $1.5 million project. The district will levy for $1 million and use $500,000 from reserves, she added. But Sander stressed the GSL addition plan needs approval from the Minnesota Department of Education first. Resident Al Schochenmaier asked about the state aid and how much is owed to the GSL School District. Sander said the state aid is paid to the school district twice a month, but property taxes are paid to the district twice a year by the county. The state aid is never paid fully in a fiscal year, Sander said. In the past the district received 90 percent of its state aid during the school year, and 10 percent was held back until final enrollment numbers were set in the fall. But state legislators have whittled that amount down over the past years to help balance the state’s budgets. Sander said the district now gets only 64.3 percent of its state aid during the current school year, “and they (the state) keeps the rest.” But in December, with a state budget surplus forecast, the state will increase its payments to 82.5 of its state aid “unless the Legislature changes the law,” Sander added. Schochenmaier asked about losses in state aid by GSL with students open enrolling out of the district. Sander said GSL loses about
400 students to open enrollment and gains about 90. At $6,000 per student, “that’s a big chunk.” GSL Superintendent Chris Sonju said the district has done numerous surveys to find out why students open enroll out of GSL, “and geography is the reason.” Sonju said students on the district’s fringes often enroll in schools closer to their homes, Sibley East to the south, Dassel-Cokato to the north and Hutchinson, which gets about 100 GSL district students. “Many (parents) are respectful of the GSL District, think we are doing great things, but the school is too far away,” Sonju said.

Kurt T. Pfaff,
By Lee Ostrom Sports Editor than Maass led the way with 26 points, and three of his Glencoe-Silver Lake teammates also posted double-figure totals, as the Panthers won their long-anticipated basketball opener 80-63 last Friday (Dec. 7) at Watertown-Mayer. GSL, 7-20 one year ago, played hard, pushed pace and showed good depth against its Section 5 (Class AA) rivals, who lost for the second time since topping Dassel-Cokato in its Nov. 30 opener. GSL head coach Robb DeCorsey, who had fed his boys a steady diet of drills and scrimmages since the Monday before Thanksgiving, said they were chomping at the bit for a game. Senior guard Travis Rothstein saw it, too. “After three long weeks of practice,” he said, “we were ready to show people what we’ve got this year.” What did the Panthers show? “A team effort,” senior forward Trent Draeger said. In particular, Draeger thought GSL’s man-to-man defense — something he said DeCorsey stresses “every day” in practice — was key. “Everybody who played made positive contributions,” DeCorsey said. *** About nine minutes in, Watertown-Mayer closed to within 21-20 on guard Jacob Grotbo’s trey — his first, and his team’s fourth. However, the Royals came away empty — 0-for-3 from the field, 0-for-2 from the line, with three turnovers — on its next five possessions. At the same time, GSL was tallying 12 points, including a fourpoint play (three-point shot plus a free throw) from Maass, an All-Wright County Conference point. Senior forward Brandon Ebert, who started the 12-0 spree with a medium-post deuce, finished it by finding the netting from the side. GSL would lead by 13 for a second time, when Keaton Anderson knocked down a triple that made the score 36-23. Then, Watertown-Mayer made a move, using Grotbo’s second trey and two free throws by guard Jacob Wandersee to get to within six at 3832. But a triple by Maass and a reverse layup by sophomore forward Garrett Ober allowed GSL to go to intermission with a 43-34 advantage. *** The Panthers added the first four points of the second half — two on a Draeger layup from Maass, and two on a steal and layup by Anderson, a sophomore lefty who finished with 14 points. Maass’ fifth triple made it 52-38 with 15:18 to go. His back-to-back driving deuces upped GSL’s lead to 58-43 with 12:15 remaining. A few possessions later, the bulge became 17 when senior forward Reed Dunbar stuck a deuce from a corner of the lane. From there, the Royals fought back, getting to 62-52 on two of 6-4 junior center Luke Sandquist’s 19 points. But after a free throw by Dunbar, senior GSL guard Greg Ober (10 points) tallied a steal-and-solo deuce; then a couple of minutes later, Ober did it again, pushing the lead back to 14. *** — Maass connected on nine of 14 shots from the floor and three of four from the line for his 26 points. He also charted seven assists, six rebounds and two steals. Anderson was GSL’s top rebounder, with seven. He and Rothstein had four assists each. Greg Ober led in steals with three. — GSL scored on 37 of 74 possessions, while WM tallied on 31 of 74. The Panthers were 32-for-61 from the field (seven treys) and 9-for-15 from the line. The Royals were 22-for-47 (six treys) and 13-for-24. GSL committed 23 turnovers to WM’s 24. The guests converted 10 second-chance opportunities into eight points; the hosts eight into five. In all, GSL outrebounded WM, 3027. — These 10 Panthers (points) had playing minutes: Maass (26), Anderson (14), Draeger (12), Greg Ober (10), Ebert (8), Dunbar (6), Rothstein (2), Garrett Ober (2), Brody Bratsch, and Teddy Petersen. — WM’s scoring: Sandquist (19), Wandersee (14), Barna Berenyi (10), Grotbo (7),

Wrestlers 2nd with 4 champs at Andover
By Kevin Simonson Special to The Leader Coming off their best-ever finish in a Don Hall Invitational, the Panther wrestlers took their talents to Andover last weekend for the annual Husky Invitational. The GSL/Lester Prairie coaching staff set a goal of finishing in the top three of 13 teams. In December 2011, the Panthers placed fifth. This year, led by four individual champions, three second-place finishers and a third, GSL/LP brought home the runner-up trophy. “I thought everyone wrestled great, and we wrestled as a team. Everyone stepped it up a notch and we were able to get second,” commented senior captain Mitchell Hartwig. Team champion Centennial had three champions, three seconds and three thirds. Centennial defended its team title from a year ago by scoring 225 points, compared to the Panthers’ 188.5. Chippewa Falls (Wis.) was a distant third with 155.5. What aided Centennial to the team title was the ability to fill all 14 weight classes and place in 13 of them. On the other hand, GSL/LP filled only 11 of the weights, with only eight of them placing. Bringing home champion medals for the Panthers were Jacob Jewett (106), Nate Tesch (138), Hartwig (152) and Dalton Clouse (195). Jewett, Hartwig and Clouse were all number-one seeds, while Tesch was seeded sixth. None of the four champions was named outstanding wrestler of the tournament, but each could have, based on individual accomplishments. Jewett won by fall in each of his first two matches; then beat Jake Bergeland from Centennial in the finals 7-4. Jewett currently is the state’s ninthranked Class AA 106-pounder. Tesch pinned the third seed, Shawn Sura of Chippewa Falls, in the quarters; in the next round he defeated secondseeded Michael Straw from Minneapolis South, 10-3. In the finals, he faced top-seeded Devon Felton from Austin. Felton was a state entrant a year ago and is currently ranked fifth in the state. Tesch scored a quick takedown and three nearfall points before giving up a reversal and two nearfall points. Moments later, though, Tesch had the reversal that put Felton on his back. Suddenly, the referee hit the mat for the fall at 1:19. Hartwig won three matches on the day with all wins coming by fall. In the finals, he beat Kyle Zerbian from Chippewa Falls in 3:47. Hartwig, who improved to 6-0 on the year,

Glencoe-Silver Lake/Lester Prairie junior Michael Donnay works his cross-body ride against Danny Chiebek (St. Louis moved his career win total to 114. Currently, he is ranked third at 152. Clouse won his title at 195. Clouse barely worked up a sweat, as he recorded three falls in times of 39 seconds, 27 seconds and 1:14. Hartwig and Clouse were both champions last year. Finishing second for the Panthers were Michael Donnay (120), Brandon Richter (126) and Nick Brelje (160). Donnay was the top seed at 120 and advanced to the finals by scoring a fall in his first match and winning 9-0 in the semifinals. In the championship match, he fell 4-3 after giving up a reversal late in the third period to Danny Chiebek of St. Louis Park. Richter, the third seed, won
Park) in the championship match at 120 pounds last Saturday in Andover. Donnay placed second. Donnay lost 8-5. This dropped Donnay to the wrestlebacks where he won three matches to finish third with a 4-1 tourney record. Also competing for the Panthers were John Williams (170), who finished 1-2, and Martin Lezama (182), who went 0-2. Chris Lemke, a second-year wrestler, finished the day 0-2 at 285 but went the distance in both matches. He came close to winning by fall in his second match, before running out of time. The Panthers hit the road Thursday for a double-dual event at Litchfield. GSL/LP will face the host Dragons in the opening round and then Dassel-Cokato in the finale. On Saturday, the tourney action is in Richfield.

In the finals Richter faced top-seeded Quinn Miracle from Chippewa Falls, losing 13-4 in a physical match. Freshman Nick Brelje finished second at 160. He advanced to the finals by winning his first two matches by fall. In the finals he faced top-seed Charlie Schmid of Orono and lost by fall. After going 0-3 at the GSL/LP tourney at 120, Aaron Donnay felt more comfortable at 113. Donnay won a pigtail match by pin and then faced the second seed in the quarterfinals. In a very tight match

Weather Corner
By Jake Yurek
Well, “Snowzilla 2012” is behind us and, hopefully, by the time you read this, the digging out is complete. It was fun watching the forecast models pin down this storm in the days leading up to it. It just kept getting bigger and closer to our area, and in the end we were pretty much in the stripe of highest totals. Most areas saw daily records for snowfall and St. Cloud hit the highest 24-hour snowfall total in December history for the city. The highest amount I’ve seen is around 17 inches to our southwest, with most areas around us seeing anywhere from nine to 14 inches. Moving on to this week, we won’t be seeing any kind of a repeat performance, and temperatures should rebound a bit after our very chilly start to the week. Highs should hover in the upper 20s to lower 30s with lows mostly in the teens. There will be two storms moving across the middle part of the country toward the end of the week, but right now it appears one will miss to our north with the other heading to our south. I’m still keeping a few snow showers in the forecast Friday into Saturday, but there is a chance we could get missed by these. Taking a peek at the extended shows a very normal December-like pattern setting up for us with a storm trying to take form by early next week. Have a great week, all; hopefully, you can get a chance to enjoy the fresh snow considering the non-winter we had last year. Ma dobry weekendem Mit dobry vikend Wednesday night — Lows 14-20; partly cloudy. Thursday — Highs 24-32; lows 10-16, clear. Friday — Highs 25-33; lows 15-20; partly cloudy. Saturday — Highs 23-31; lows 13-19; clouds/snow showers. Sunday — Highs 23-31; partly cloudy. Weather Quiz: Any fun facts or weather records from last weekend’s big storm? Answer to last week’s question: On average, our area will have a white Christmas about 80 percent of the time. This year I’m going to go out on a limb and say we have a 100 percent chance. Remember: I make the forecast, not the weather!
