The Arlington City Coun-
cil, during its regular meeting
on Monday night, Dec. 16,
unanimously adopted a reso-
lution to approve the final
2013 tax levy for collection
in 2014. The tax levy will re-
main at $756,805 which is the
same as last year.
City Council members
James Jaszewski, Jennifer
Nuesse, Curt Reetz, Jason
Ruehling and Galen Wills all
voted in favor of the resolu-
tion.
The final tax levy is lower
than the preliminary tax levy
which was originally set in
September. The City Council,
at that time, unanimously
adopted a resolution to ap-
prove the preliminary 2013
tax levy for collection in
2014 at $793,462 or about a
4.84 percent hike over last
year.
The City Council, accord-
ing to City Administrator
Liza Donabauer, was able
keep the final tax levy the
same by using an approxi-
mate $77,000 increase in
Local Government Aid
(LGA), about $92,000 from
the hospital lease, savings
from sales tax exemption, dif-
ferent funding for the Capital
Funding Plan (CIP) and post-
poning some purchases and
projects.
Arlington, according to
Donabauer, had the lowest
municipal per capita tax in
Sibley County in 2011.
In addition, Arlington
ranked the second lowest in
the average city tax rate in
Sibley County during 2011.
Arlington has accom-
plished these rankings even
though its state aid has been
reduced five times since
2002. Of those five times,
four have taken place in the
past six years.
The City Council, during
the previous six years, has ap-
proved final tax levies of 2.2,
zero, 5.9, three, three and
zero percent increases respec-
tively.

The late Darwin Mathwig,
Arlington, will be honored in
a memorial florograph por-
trait in the 125th Tournament
of Roses Parade at Pasadena,
Calif., on Wednesday, Jan. 1.
Darwin will be one of 81
organ, eye and tissue donors
who will be honored on the
Donate Life float.
“It will be an overwhelm-
ing and emotional experi-
ence,” said his wife, Nancy
Mathwig, who will make the
trip to California to watch the
parade. She will be accompa-
nied by Darwin’s sister and
brother-in-law, Joyce and
David Kroells.
Each honored individual
will be remembered by their
generosity, compassion, and
lives saved and healed
through donations after death.
The floragraphs will grace
the lanterns of light that illu-
minate 30 float riders – all
transplant recipients – and the
12 living donors who will ac-
company them on foot along
the five-mile route seen by
more than 40 million viewers
nationwide.
“The donors’ families and
dozens of volunteers will
decorate the portraits with
grains, flowers, seeds, spices
and other organic materials,”
said Bryan Stewart, chairper-
son of the Donate Life float
committee and vice president
of communications at OneLe-
gacy, the nonprofit organ and
tissue recovery organization
serving the greater Los Ange-
les area. “For many of their
families, this is a unique op-
portunity to see their loved
one shine before millions of
people worldwide and to gain
special recognition for their
gifts of life and hope.”
The Minnesota Lions Eye
Bank hosted a reception last
Sunday where Darwin’s actu-
al florograph was on display
and Nancy finished the eye-
brows prior to the reception
time.
Darwin will be one of two
individuals sponsored on the
float by the Minnesota Lions
Eye Bank.
The float will be the 15th
unit in the parade, according
to Nancy. It will follow the
Budweiser Clydesdales and
appear in the first 30 minutes
of the parade.
Darwin’s Story
Darwin Mathwig was dedi-
cated to his family and com-
munity service, values that he
and his wife Nancy shared
with their three children. Dar-
win easily made friends
through his community, busi-
ness, and volunteer activities.
He touched many lives, often
without realizing it.
Throughout his adult life,
Darwin was committed to
helping wherever there was a
need, and his volunteerism is
impressive. He served on the
Arlington Baseball Board, the
Arlington Area Chamber of
Commerce, the Sibley Med-
ical Center Foundation
Board, and the Sibley East
Music Boosters, among oth-
ers.
Darwin was also a 17-year
member of the Arlington
Area Ambulance Service, a
retired 20-year member of the
Arlington Fire Department,
and a nine-year veteran of the
Arlington City Council. But
foremost in Darwin's life of
service was his dedication of
31 years to the Arlington
Lions Club.
More than just a member,
Darwin held many Lions club
offices and was honored to
serve as governor for the 63
clubs in south central Min-
nesota.

at the 125th Tournament of Roses Parade
“Darwin was always think-
ing of new ways to promote
the community and the Lions
organization,” said Nancy.
“As governor, Darwin’s mes-
sage was focused on the im-
portance of each member’s
unique contribution, whether
small or large, to the success
of the club.”
On July 4, 2010, Darwin
lost his life to pancreatic can-
cer. He was 58. He donated
his eyes to be used by re-
searchers studying glaucoma,
cornea dystrophy (deteriora-
tion) and fibrosis (thickening
and scarring).
“Untold numbers can see
today because of past contri-
butions to research,” said
Nancy. “Darwin's life was one
of service, and through the
many lives he bettered, as
well as the selfless donation
of his eyes, Darwin still
serves.”

The Arlington City
Council, during its regular
meeting on Monday
evening, Dec. 16, voted 4-
1 to approve a motion to
purchase a Daktronic
20mm LED electronic
sign and accompanying
panels for $68,675 at the
Community Center.
After an energy savings
rebate and projected ad-
vertising, the new elec-
tronic sign is expected to
cost around $60,000.
City Council members
James Jaszewski, Jennifer
Nuesse, Jason Ruehling
and Galen Wills all voted
in favor of the motion.
City Council member Curt
Reetz voted against the
motion.
The City Council made
the move based on recom-
mendations from the Pub-
lic Buildings Committee
and Community Center
Committee. The new LED
electronic sign will fit into
the existing brick struc-
ture. The top panel above
the electronic sign will be
new and two new panels
will replace the current ad-
vertising below the elec-
tronic sign. Those two
new panels will include
the address, phone number
and e-mail address for the
City of Arlington.
The City Council had
initially budgeted $40,000
for this new sign in its
Capital Improvement Plan
(CIP) fund during 2013.
Another $10,000 was bud-
geted in the form of dona-
tions.
The City Council will
place an additional
$20,000 in the CIP fund
during 2014 to cover the
cost of the new electronic
sign.
Reetz and Wills sug-
gested that the City Coun-
cil could keep the existing
top panel and save about
$3,000.
Jaszewski said the exist-
ing top panel might not
match the rest of the new
panels. He added that the
City Council should also
“do it the right way” and
purchase the new top
panel.
The City Council has
discussed the possible pur-
chase of a new electronic
sign for the past 1 1/2
years. The current elec-
tronic sign, which has flu-
orescent lights, has not
worked at all for the past
three months.
In the consent agenda,
the City Council unani-
mously approved residen-
tial solid waste permits for
Renville-Sibley Sanitation
and Waste Management.
The City Council also
unanimously approved
commer ci al / dumpst er
solid waste permits for
Renville-Sibley Sanita-
tion, Waste Management
and Gaylord Sanitation.
The City Council also
unanimously approved a
city recycling contract
with Waste Management.
In addition, the City
Council unanimously ap-
proved a city garbage col-
lection contract with
Renville-Sibley Sanita-
tion.
The Arlington City
Council will hold its next
regular meeting at 6:30
p.m. Monday, Jan. 6.

The Sibley County Board
of Commissioners called a
public hearing for 10 a.m.
Tuesday, Jan. 7 regarding an
ordinance to consolidate the
duties of the auditor and
treasurer offices upon a va-
cancy.
The action was taken at the
board meeting on Thursday,
Dec. 12. County Administra-
tor Matt Jaunich said the 30-
day period has passed since
the board voted to combine
the positions and there was
no request for a reverse refer-
endum.
The two offices will be
combined Jan. 1, 2019. The
public hearing is for an ordi-
nance stating that if a vacan-
cy in one of the positions oc-
curs before the filing period
in 2019, then the county can
appoint the auditor/treasurer
position.
• In other business, the
board approved a resolution
and adopted the Tri-County
Comprehensive Solid Waste
Management plan.
The plan will carry the
county through the next 10
years. The resolution is post-
ed on the county website in
the document section. It was
said that prior to the issue
going to public notice, all the
major players signed off on
it.
The state requires all coun-
ties to plan for and imple-
ment waste reduction, recy-
cling, education, yard waste,
source separated organic ma-
terials, composting and spe-
cial and problem material
waste management strategies.

Pointing out that Sibley
County is not against the City
of Gaylord and does not want
hard feelings, the Board of
Commissioners voted against
selling a piece of county
property for construction of a
new water tower at the meet-
ing on Thursday, Dec. 12.
At the board meeting on
Tuesday, Nov. 26, County
Administrator Matt Jaunich
asked if the City of Gaylord
could do soil borings on the
proposed new water tower
site and wanted to start nego-
tiations for sale of the 175’ X
175’ parcel.
The board said it wanted to
take a closer look at the pro-
posed project to build a new
400,000-gallon water tower
on the southwest corner of
the county property that is
south of Main Avenue and
west of Eighth Street. It is on
a seven-acre site south of the
county service center.
One concern had to do with
the limit the sale would place
on the county for expanding
public works to the site. The
other concern was what re-
strictions the city would put
in place on the county if it
wanted to construct next to
the water tower.
Project manager Justin
Black from Short Elliot Hen-
drickson Inc. (SEH) present-
ed information to the board at
the Dec. 12 meeting.
“What initiated the project
was the condition of one of
the two city water towers,”
said Black about one built in
1917 (75,000 gallons) and the
other in 1990 (400,000 gal-
lons). “The city did an in-
spection on the older tower
and found a number of defi-
ciencies where repairs are
needed. The recommendation
by the inspection company
was to build a new tower. It
was not worth investing any
more money into the old
one.”
In looking at the city’s
water storage needs, the gen-
eral rule is to have as much
storage in the air as for what
is the average daily use for
the city. Looking at the 2012
daily use, the average is just
shy of 600,000 gallons, ac-
cording to Black. The current
capacity is 475,000 gallons.
The towers fill three times
per day and have a maximum
daily capacity of 1.2 million
gallons.
The projected demand for
2032 is for an average daily
use of 740,000 gallons and
the max being 1.5 million
gallons per day. That brought
the city to a new tower size of
400,000 gallons.
With the current tower not
only in need of repair and it is
too small, the optimal loca-
tion for a new tower was lo-
cated on county property. The
site offers parallel operation
to the existing 400,000 gallon
tank and provides good fire
protection as well as equal
water pressure throughout the
city. It is close proximity to
the 12-inch trunk water main
and the elevation reduces the
required tower height and
cost, which increases by
$10,000 per every foot.
Black said a big advantage
to this site is having the infra-
structure in place. The city
decided 20 years ago to ex-
tend the large water main to
the west end of the city for
future needs. There is no such
pipe in the plan B site, which
dramatically increases the
cost.
The land for the alternative
site is owned by the school
district in the northwest cor-
ner of the city. Black said dis-
tribution from a fire protec-
tion standpoint is not as good
as option A.
“In summary, we didn’t go
into this lightly when we
looked at a water tower size
or site selection,” said Black
about looking at all these dif-
ferent factors. “The city does
not have any property it owns
to meet the criteria and we
had to look at other property.
The city has a low interest
loan where construction plans
are due in March to secure
the $1.8 million.”
Black said after a meeting
with county representatives in
the summer it was his under-
standing that it would be ok
to move ahead and continue
to build a computer model.
Gaylord City Administrator
Kevin McCann said if the
county property is not avail-
able they would have to start
the whole process over and it
would be a lot more costly.
Asked about a possible set-
back restriction, Black said
he does not foresee it to be an
issue and the county can
build up to the 175’ X 175’
line. The city has no other use
for the area and it can be used
by the county for temporary
need like storage of vehicles
or stockpiling of snow.
County Commissioner
Harold Pettis said the county
had purchased the seven acres
for future expansion. Public
Works Director Tim Becker
presented a drawing showing
the ideal shop layout if all fa-
cilities were brought together
on the one site.
Becker said the existing
site is not large enough to
house all the public works fa-
cilities in one location and
two sites would be recom-
mended. Ideally, Becker said
a 10-acre site would be need-

Daily admissions at the
Gaylord Area Aquatic Center
were down in 2013 compared
to its first two years in 2011
and 2012, according to an ar-
ticle in The Gaylord Hub.
Park Board members said
the daily admission numbers
are believed to be more than
“norm” as weather conditions
were ideal in 2011 and 2012.
According to the report, the
aquatic center noticed a
$31,542 loss in 2013. Rev-
enues were totaled at
$169, 184 while expenses
were $200,726.
While overall numbers are
down, the aquatic center is
still being seen as operating
above expectations. Accord-
ing to City Administrator
Kevin McCann, budget esti-
mates at the time the facility
was constructed showed the
City of Gaylord losing
$65,000 per year. The former
Gaylord pool, McCann said,
lost between $40,000 and
$60,000 per year.
Marketing the new facility
will continue to be a priority.
The Park Board will also
keep an eye on the rates and
adjust them accordingly.

Two Sibley East students
were seriously injured in a
two-vehicle accident along
Highway 5 about three miles
east of Gaylord at 3:30 p.m.
Tuesday, Dec. 17, according
to the Minnesota State Patrol.
Ashley T. Grack, 16, Gay-
lord, was driving a 1995 Ford
Explorer westbound on High-
way 5 when she reportedly
lost control of the vehicle and
collided with a westbound
2009 Pontiac G6 driven by
Jacob W. Brandt, 23, Gay-
lord, according to the report.
Grack and a passenger,
Sadie J. Quast, 15, Gaylord,
were seriously injured in the
crash, the report said.
Grack and Quast are cur-
rently sophomores at the Sib-
ley East Senior High School
in Arlington.
Brandt suffered a non-life
threatening injury, according
to the report.
The Sibley County Sher-
iff ’s Department, Gaylord
Police Department, Gaylord
Ambulance, Gaylord Fire De-
partment and Arlington Am-
bulance assisted at the scene.
Sibley East students seriously injured
in 2-vehicle accident east of Gaylord
engineer’s preliminary report
for the improvement of coun-

ing at 10 a.m.
• The County Commission-
ers accepted the resignation of
Mary Woods as part-time sup-
port technician in the audi-
tor’s office.
• The 2014 public works
fuel supply bid was awarded
to United Farmers Coopera-
tive in the amount of
$253,942.56.
• Approved was the authori-
zation for Public Works Di-
rector Tim Becker to pursue
grant funding opportunities to
light the CSAH 15/TH 5 inter-
section located south of Green
Isle.
Residents had called to
complain that the intersection
was too dark, especially for
cars coming from the metro
area.
Becker said the state has
money set aside for projects
like these. The county has to
pay for the installation, elec-
tricity and maintenance. The
cost is about $100 a month or
$1,200 a year.
Public Hearing Continued from page 1
Around 100 people were in
attendance for a Minnesota
Department of Transportation
meeting in Nicollet on Mon-
day, Dec. 16 on the future of
Highway 14.
The four-lane expansion of
the highway from North
Mankato to Nicollet will take
place in 2015, and the inter-
section with Highway 111
will be re-done at that time.
The issue is that Mn/DOT
wants to go with a Reduced
Conflict Intersection con-
trolled by signs while Nicol-
let Mayor Fred Froelich said
that residents favor a full in-
terchange.
Project engineers were on
hand Monday evening to talk
about the possible intersec-
tion alternatives for Nicollet.
Mn/DOT’s Zach Tess said
they did a cost-benefit analy-
sis on the various options,
and while an interchange is
twice as safe as a Reduced
Conflict intersection, it would
cost eight times as much to
construct.
The expansion of Highway
14 was recently named one of
10 highway construction
projects to receive part of $30
million in available funding
through the state’s new “Cor-
ridors of Commerce” initia-
tive.
Local State Representative
Clark Johnson said that the
money is there for a full inter-
change.
Following the Mn/DOT
meeting, the Nicollet City
Council unanimously ap-
proved a resolution to not
support the plan to build a
Reduced Conflict Intersec-
tion, and called upon Gover-
nor Mark Dayton to direct
Mn/DOT to use the adequate
Corridors of Commerce funds
for the Nicollet bypass proj-
ect. Mn/DOT reportedly
needs municipal approval to
do the project in Nicollet.
About 100 people attend MnDOT meeting
on the future of Highway 14 in Nicollet

Christmas is a
season of giving
Our View: Giving is again more
important now than ever
Opinions
Guest Column
Letter To The Editor
Christmas is not only a rich and joyful religious celebration.
It is also a season of giving.
Residents in the Arlington and Green Isle area have always
been generous during this time of year. Churches, schools and
organizations hold collections for the local and area food
shelves. Individuals and groups donate presents to Santa’s
Helpers and Toys For Tots while other people volunteer to wrap
those gifts. The giving goes on and on.
This Christmas once again comes at a pivotal time. This
year’s holiday season comes at a time when many individuals
and families are experiencing difficult times.
For the fifth consecutive year, people actually know neighbors
and friends who are without work or just back to work and
struggling to put food on the table and presents underneath the
Christmas tree.
When the parties are over and the decorations are packed
away, however, these people may continue to struggle to make
ends meet into the new year. Although there again is hope that
this will finally be the last Christmas of the global economic
difficulties, many individuals and families will need the help of
their neighbors, friends and family members well into 2014.
Another good deed to perform during the holiday season and
the long winter is to stay in touch with an elderly friend, neigh-
bors or relatives. A card, gift, visit or even telephone call will
make their holiday season and break up the long winter.
In addition, there are people who are struggling with medical
conditions and others who have lost loved ones during the year.
Helping people in their time of need and watching over the
elderly is not only a Minnesota tradition. It’s the right thing to
do.

Christmas Presents
Here are ten useful phrases for re-
sponding to Christmas presents you
would rather not have received.
1. Thanks a lot!?
2. My word! What a gift.
3. Well, well, well...
4. If I hadn’t put on so much
weight recently it would have fit-
ted me perfectly.
5. Gosh, I hope I never lose this.
We’re always losing things around
here.
6. It’s great, but I’m worried
about the envy it may create.
7. Just my luck to get this on the
very Christmas I promised to give
all my gifts to charity.
8. Unfortunately, I am about to
enter MI5’s Witness Protection
Program.
9. Frankly, I don’t deserve this.
10. Really, you shouldn’t have.
*****
You do know what would have
happened if it had been three wise
women instead of men, don’t you?
They would have asked for di-
rections, arrived on time, helped
deliver the baby, cleaned the sta-
ble, made a casserole, and brought
disposable diapers as gifts!
*****
As a little girl climbed onto
Santa’s lap, he asked the usual ques-
tion: “And what would you like for
Christmas?”
The child stared at him open-
mouthed, then gasped, “Didn’t
you get my e-mail?”
*****
Remember the old days when
people stopped Christmas shop-
ping when they ran out of money?
*****
“Santa has the right idea. Visit
people once a year.” - Victor Borge
*****
How To Tell If
You’re A Grinch
1. You reuse last year’s Christmas
cards and send them out under your
own name.
2. You steal light bulbs from
your neighbor’s outdoor display to
replenish your own supply.
3. You have dressed a dog or cat
as Santa Claus, elf helper or rein-
deer.
4. You put out last year’s stale
candy canes for children.
5. You enclose a shoddy and infe-
rior gift from a Target, Walmart or
K-Mart in a Bloomingdale’s or other
prestige box to impress your friends.
6. You make collect long dis-
tance phone calls to your family
on Christmas Eve.
7. At the office Christmas party,
you horde huge stockpiles of good-
ies for later consumption at home.
8. You steal the wreath from a
parked car to use at home.
9. After an invitation to a friend’s
house, you bring a commercially
produced fruitcake and try to pass it
off as homemade.
10. Any stealing from the Toys-
For-Tots collection bins is a defi-
nite no-no.

tell Santa what they want and adults
pay for it. Deficits are when adults

Center for Rural Affairs
These past few weeks Center for
Rural Affairs staff have been busy
talking to rural people about climate
change.
The economic health and vitality
of rural communities is closely tied
to industries dependent on a stable
climate, like farming, ranching,
forestry, and tourism. These indus-
tries employ rural people and keep
our communities viable.
Many farmers, ranchers, small
business owners, and small town
leaders recognize climate change as
a threat to our way of life. We sup-
port measures to curb the effects of
climate change, like emissions stan-
dards for existing power plants.
These actions represent an opportu-
nity that will help us thrive.
A growing number of Americans
believe climate change is occurring,
and favor policy changes that miti-
gate damage.
For generations, farmers, ranch-
ers, and rural people have found
common-sense solutions to pressing
problems. We believe our nation’s
farmers and ranchers can play a key
role in developing agricultural prac-
tices that capture carbon and build
soils. Small town manufacturers
play an equally important role in de-
veloping renewable energy technol-
ogy.
By using a mix of clean energy
and innovative agricultural prac-
tices, we can make a difference.
Strong and reasonable emissions
standards that give states the free-
dom they need to forge their own
path to compliance will help us de-
velop a thriving rural economy. But
we can’t do it without strong carbon
emission rules. We urge farmers,
ranchers, and rural small business
owners to support emissions stan-
dards that make a difference for our
working lands and small towns.
Established in 1973, the Center
for Rural Affairs is a private, non-
profit organization working to
strengthen small businesses, family
farms and ranches, and rural com-
munities through action oriented
programs addressing social, eco-
nomic, and environmental issues.
Rural people on front lines of climate change
To The Editor,
I hope your Christmas shopping is
going well and you're enjoying the
Holiday season. Small businesses
are the backbone of our economy,
and make up a significant number of
jobs in our state and around the na-
tion. As you're out shopping, please
consider shopping local.
Small businesses were hit hard
this past legislative session, and de-
spite the good economic news of
late, it seems Minnesota still lags
behind other states in many impor-
tant economic categories.
For instance, we learned last week
that Minnesota received a 'dismal'
score for entrepreneur-friendly poli-
cies. In fact, we're the sixth-worst
state in the nation thanks to our high
taxes and burdensome regulatory
policies.
While Democrats pat themselves
on the back for raising taxes, real
Minnesotans are still struggling, and
sending jobs and opportunities to
other states. Thousands of Min-
nesotans dream of one day owning a
business. It's a shame that Democ-
rats are making it harder--not easier-
-to start a business and fulfill these
lifelong dreams.
Every small business that closes,
or every entrepreneur who decides
against the uphill battle of making
their small business dream a reality
means fewer opportunities for other
Minnesotans. Small businesses pro-
vide jobs, they pay property taxes,
and they are integral parts of our
community.
Republicans understand how im-
portant small businesses are. Gover-
nor Dayton and Democrats simply
don't. We need to take steps to re-
move barriers and unnecessary regu-
lations, and lower the tax burden on
small businesses rather than increas-
ing it.
MNsure Debacle
Continues
As the December 23rd enrollment
deadline approaches for customers
to have health coverage starting Jan-
uary 1st, MNsure continues to stum-
ble.
Insurance companies are receiv-
ing incorrect or missing applicant
data from MNsure, and many users
still struggle with a glitch-plagued
website. In addition, serious security
concerns remain, and as KSTP re-
ported, MNsure is less secure than
the federal ObamaCare exchange.
Too many Minnesota families are
losing sleep wondering whether or
not they will be covered on Jan. 1.
MNsure continues to insist that any-
one who has paid by Dec. 23 will be
covered Jam. 1, but has yet to fix the
problems that has prevented Min-
nesotans from receiving their insur-
ance cards from insurance compa-
nies.
Despite the ongoing problems,
MNsure's executive director felt it
necessary to take a two week tropi-
cal vacation to Costa Rica. Min-
nesota taxpayers deserve better, and
MNsure must fix these issues to pre-
vent coverage lapses starting Jan. 1.
Stay warm and drive safely on the
icy roads.

Last week Tuesday, at the
home of the bride’s parents in
Kelso Township, occurred the
wedding of Mr. Arthur Nagel to
Miss Martha Boettcher. The
bride is a daughter of Mr. and
Mrs. Fred Boettcher of Kelso
Township and the groom is a
son of Mr. and Mrs. Martin
Nagel of Arlington Township.
The happy young couple will re-
side on the old Boettcher farm
in Kelso Township.
The roads at the present are in
the worst shape they have been
for several years, being almost
unfit for travel with any kind of
vehicle. The rains of the past
few weeks softened them up and
later the mud froze hard as a
rock.
“The Spanish Flitter” is the
name of the newest dance. Ac-
cording to Miss Hop Loring,
once a premier ballroom dancer,
you take one step forward, then
sneeze twice, pivot and swallow
two quinine capsules, swing
your partner, then cough in uni-
son, take two steps backward
and blow your nose, and then
you waltz home and call the
doctor.

Mrs. Fred Witte on Sunday
evening, December 19th, to
commemorate their golden wed-
ding anniversary. Rev. J.
Bradtke and Rev. R. Heidmann
gave very interesting sermons in
honor of the highly esteemed
couple.
Death brought to a close on
Friday, December 17th, the
earthly career of Mrs. Mary
Thomes, one of Arlington’s
most beloved and respected pio-
neer women. Mrs. Thomes was
the daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
Peter Bertrang, early settlers in
Green Isle Township. She was
the first white child born in that
community. At the time of her
death she also bore the distinc-
tion of being our oldest native
born citizen. She reached the
age of 81 years, 8 months and
23 days.
The school bus acted up
Thursday morning and as a re-
sult the Green Isle students had
to wait for a bus from Glencoe,
which arrived promptly.

The Sibley East Advisory
School Board at its meeting in
Arlington unanimously recom-
mended September 13, 1994 as
the date for the Cooperation &
Combination (C&C) vote. the
Arlington-Green Isle School
Board and the Gaylord School
Board will officially act upon
this recommendation at their
next respective meetings.
Cost of a new two-story jail
in Sibley County could be
$300,000 greater than anticipat-
ed if commissioners choose to
include several alternate plans
as proposed by the project’s ar-
chitects. Of the seven proposals,
the two with the biggest price
tag include more than $63,000
in kitchen equipment and the
construction of a $143,000
walkway between the jail and
the Sibley County Courthouse.
An additional expense includes
$30,000 for red-clay roofing
rather than asphalt shingles. The
tiles would match roofing on the
attached building that is listed
on the National Register of His-
toric Places.
Five lakes in Sibley County
have been posted for liberalized
fishing, according to the Depart-
ment of Natural Resources. The
five lakes include Buck, Clear,
High Island, Schilling and Tit-
low. Under liberalized fishing
regulations, licensed residents
may take fish in any quantity
and any manner except by the
use of seines, hoop nets, fyke
net or explosives. Liberalized
fishing will be allowed in these
waters between December 15,
1993 and sunset on March 1,
1994.
ed compared to the seven
acres owned by the county.
County Commissioner Bill
Pinske said maybe the expan-
sion would not be just for
public works. He said most
counties look to buy land
around their facilities. He
added, “I don’t know if it is
prudent to sell off the land.”
“Without knowing our
plans in the future, I am defi-
nitely opposed to selling the
parcel for a water tower,” said
Pettis.
County Commissioner Jim
Nytes said the only way he
would be open to selling land
is to make a trade for land that
would be a good deal for
both, “Otherwise, commis-
sioners in the past did it right
to have foresight and look to
the future.”
County Commissioner Jim
Swanson said since this coun-
ty property is too small for a
major expansion, and the
amount of property is not
going to be a big impact, he
made the motion to pursue
selling the property to the city.
Nytes, Pettis and Pinske
voted against the motion
while Swanson and County
Commissioner Joy Cohrs
voted in favor of the motion.

With just a few weeks left
of the 2013 pheasant season,
many hunters have put away
their gear, creating opportuni-
ties for those who want to
harvest some late season
roosters, according to the
Minnesota Department of
Natural Resources.
“There are definitely birds
out there,” said Jeff Zajac,
DNR area wildlife manager
for Brown, Redwood and
Renville counties. “I think it’s
better around here than last
year.”
Zajac said the wet spring
forced many pheasant hens to
renest and hatch chicks much
later than is typical. “We had
reports of chicks in August
and those may have been
missed when we were doing
our roadside counts,” he said.
“Those pheasants are now
huntable birds.”
Late season hunting re-
quires different strategies ac-
cording to Zajac. The early
snows have pushed down and
filled in grassland habitat that
was used as cover by the
birds earlier in the season.
Pheasants are moving into
areas with more thermal
cover, such as cattail sloughs.
“The good news is that the
birds are easier to find, but it
does take a little more effort
to hunt them in sloughs,”
Zajac said.
Cory Netland, DNR area
wildlife supervisor for six
counties in the Willmar area,
has also seen late season suc-
cess by hunters. “It’s really
been pretty good,” he said.
“We’re not seeing the number
of birds we did in ’05, ’06 or
’07, but we don’t have the
numbers of hunters either.”
Netland suggests hunting
cattails, willows, conifer
plantings and food plots.
“Some hunters see snow and
stop hunting pheasants,” Net-
land said. “The light snow
cover in my area can actually
help pheasant hunting.”
The difficult pheasant
opener in October discour-
aged some hunters early, he
said. Strong winds, warm
temperatures and crops in the
field made hunting a chal-
lenge. “A lot of guys threw in
the towel too soon,” Netland
said. “The benefit is we have
pheasants that haven’t seen
the hunting pressures of a
normal year.”
Both Netland and Zajac
agree that it’s worth putting
on some extra clothes to hunt
pheasants this December.
“Hunters putting in an honest
effort are coming home with
birds,” Netland said.
The Minnesota pheasant
season is open through Jan. 1.
Since Dec. 1, the daily bag
limit has been three roosters
and the possession limit is
nine.

The Minnesota Department
of Natural Resources is ask-
ing citizens to consider the
situation carefully before re-
porting swans (or other wa-
terfowl) that appear to be
trapped in ice or rapidly
freezing water.
Just like people, animals
behave differently during var-
ious seasons and some
wildlife enthusiasts are not
prepared to see changes in
behavior. It is easy for people
to mistake an animal doing
something they’ve never seen
before for an animal in dis-
tress. Careful observation
over a short period of time (a
few days to a week) may re-
veal a healthy animal that is
just behaving differently than
expected. People should stop
and closely observe before at-
tempting to find help.
“Trumpeter swans are a
classic example of this,” said
Erica Hoaglund, central re-
gion nongame wildlife spe-
cialist. “Citizens see them
this time of year resting on
frozen water or swimming
about in small pockets of
open water within ice. People
assume they are trapped when
most of the time they are not
and move on in either a few
days or a few weeks; it is fre-
quently not the emergency it
can first appear to be.”
Here are reminders for peo-
ple concerned about the fate
of swans they see in or near
water during the early parts
of winter.
Often birds that seem
trapped in ice or in a shrink-
ing area of open water turn
out to be fine, not trapped and
just hanging out in the area.
When it’s cold, animals move
around less just like people.
On the rare occasion that
an animal is actually in dis-
tress, it is often physically
impossible to reach them
safely across thin ice and
open frigid water. Often the
animals have been unable to
leave the area for some un-
derlying reason such as ill-
ness or injury and it is impos-
sible to rehabilitate the ani-
mal even after its rescue. Do
not risk a human life to save a
wild animal.
In the case of swans in
Minnesota, the DNR
nongame wildlife program is
happy to report that after
years of restoration efforts,
swan populations in the state
are now stable and large
enough that occasional mor-
tality, while sometimes sad, is
not cause for alarm for an en-
tire population.
Animals that die outside in
the winter are an important
part of the food chain. Their
carcasses will provide crucial
winter food sources to a wide
range of wildlife, including
invertebrates, mice and even
bald eagles.
People should think twice before they report swans that appear in trouble

gan Thoele to its 4-H family.

done so. Ali and Lexi Stock
gave a project talk on horse
care and preparation needed
when taking a horse to the

I like to put the angel on the
tree. I like putting the Christ-
mas balls on the tree too. I
like baking cookies with my
mom.
Brayden Bergs

Christmas is a holiday that
we learn about Jesus. My fa-
vorite song is We Three
Kings. I like Santa when he
comes to bring me presents. I
want tractors and wagons.
Kaleb Crawford

Christmas is about Jesus
and it’s fun. Away in a
Manger is a fun song. I like
to put the snowflake on top of
the tree so it looks like a star.
Peppermint candy is minty.

Christmas is Jesus’ birth-
day, when Jesus was born.
Christmas is the best holiday.
Christmas is the best time of

Christmas is cool if you
look at the word Christmas.
The first six letters tell you
about Christmas. Christ
came to save us from our sins
