The Arlington City Coun-
cil, during its regular meeting
on Monday evening, Feb. 4,
voted 4-1 and approved a
motion to approve a $9,000
change order in conjunction
with the City Services/Tech
Center Renovation Project.
City Council members Ben
Jaszewski, Jennifer Nuesse,
Jason Ruehling and Galen
Wills voted in favor of the
motion.
City Council member Curt
Reetz, who voted against the
motion, was concerned about
the increasing cost of the
project.
Wills, who presented the
update on the change order,
said the items could not be
seen or detected during the
walk-through and until the
construction firm started to
tear apart the inside of the
building.
The City Council, two
meetings ago, unanimously
approved a motion to accept
the low bid of $107,872 from
Travis Tuchtenhagen Con-
struction, Arlington, for the
City Services/Tech Center
Renovation Project.
The bid included sales tax
and dumpster costs. In addi-
tion, any change order over
$500 will be brought before
the City Council.
The City Services/Tech
Center is the former Arling-
ton City Office building
which is located at 312 West
Alden Street.
The work will consist of a
complete internal remodel of
the building including win-
dows, doors and lighting.
The purpose of the renova-
tion project is to convert the
building into a Public Safety
Center.
The goal is to move the Ar-
lington Police Department
from its present location on
Main Stret into the old filtra-
tion part of the Tech Center.
The Arlington Area Ambu-
lance Service is currently
housed in the former Arling-
ton City Office building.
The Arlington Fire Depart-
ment is presently located in a
building directly east of the
former Arlington City Office
building.
The City Council had bud-
geted $100,000 for the reno-
vation project.
Other Business
The City Council, in other
news, voted 4-1 and ap-
proved a motion to approve
calling for an administrative
hearing with Arlington
Liquors to consider discipli-
nary action on a liquor li-
cense violation in connection
with a recent compliance
check.
Jaszewski, Nuesse, Rueh-
ling and Wills supported the
motion.
Reetz, who voted against
the motion, voiced his frus-
tration that the agency which
coordinates the compliance
check will later ask for le-
niency for the establishment
and the Sibley County Attor-
ney’s Office does not follow
through with prosecution.
The city, he said, is the lone
group that follows through
with some sort of a penalty
and is labeled “the bad guy.”
In other action, the City
Council unanimously ap-
proved a motion to deny the
replacement of the yield sign
with a stop sign at the inter-
section of Second Avenue
Southwest and Adams Street.
The City Council, in anoth-
er matter, received a letter
from St. Paul’s Lutheran
School in opposition to the
proposed removal of the lone
signal light in Arlington.
In the event that the signal
light is actually removed, the
school requested the City
Council to take the necessary
steps to ensure that, at a mini-
mum, motion activated flash-
ing lights be added to the
crossing at the intersection of
Highway 5 and Main Street.
The school would also look
to the Arlington Police De-
partment for assistance when
scheduled events involve
larger groups of students
crossing the highway.
The City Council, due to
the President’s Day holiday,
will hold its next regular
meeting at 6:30 p.m. Tues-
day, Feb. 19. The Arlington
City Office will be closed on
Monday, Feb. 18.

Manager
Sibley East Senior High
Principal Jim Amsden and St.
Peter Elementary Principal
Karen Coblentz have been se-
lected for final interviews in
the Sibley East Superintend-
ent search process.
It was learned late last
week that Stacy DeCorsey,
one of the original semi-final-
ist candidates, withdrew her
name from consideration for
the position.
The fourth spot was filled
by Karen Coblentz. She is the
elementary principal at North
Intermediate School in the St.
Peter School District where
she has been a principal for
six years.
Prior to St. Peter, she spent
seven years as a principal in
the Dassel-Cokato School
District.
Before becoming a princi-
pal, Coblentz was a teacher
and curriculum director in
Windom and has taught in
Appleton, Mankato, Texas
and Japan.
She was interviewed by the
school board and community
group on Tuesday night, Feb.
5.
Amsden and Joan Broad-
water, superintendent in the
Houston School District were
interviewed on Monday
night, Feb. 4.
Judith Nagel, Assistant
High School Principal at Wa-
conia, was also interviewed
on Tuesday night, Feb. 5.
Following the interviews
Tuesday night, Feb. 5, the
school board reviewed and
considered the feedback
forms from the community
group before ranking each
semi-finalist on the attributes
they had previously ap-
proved.
Numeric rankings of zero
to three were given to each of
the 10 attributes, with three
being excellent and zero
being poor.
Total points were calculat-
ed to determine the finalists.
Coblentz received the high-
est points from the school
board. Broadwater was sec-
ond, Amsden third and Nagel
fourth.
The school board had pre-
viously debated on selecting
two or three finalists.
The final decision to invite
three finalist was made be-
cause the second and third
place points were very close.
The Arlington Enterprise
was notified by Superintend-
ent Search Consultant Ed
Waltman from the South Cen-
tral Service Cooperative
(SCSC) early Wednesday
morning, Feb. 6, that Broad-
water asked to withdraw her
name from consideration for

In response to a number of
recently introduced bills
aimed at curbing Second
Amendment rights, Repre-
sentative Glenn Gruenhagen
issued the following state-
ment:
“I have received hundreds
of emails from constituents
over the past several days
who are concerned about
DFL efforts to curb our Sec-
ond Amendment rights. I am
a fervent supporter of the
Second Amendment, and will
staunchly oppose any legisla-
tion that infringes on those
rights. I encourage con-
stituents to continue contact-
ing their legislators, and urge
them to oppose these mis-
guided efforts.
“I will support a review of
mental illness laws regarding
access to guns, and believe
that these efforts, combined
with the true enforcement of
existing gun laws, will im-
prove public safety and pre-
vent more gun violence than
many of the proposed bills
that unfairly target law-abid-
ing gun owners.”
Gruenhagen reaffirms
staunch support for
2nd amendment rights
A Winthrop man accused
of stealing over $13,000
worth of corn from his em-
ployer recently pleaded guilty
to felony theft in Sibley
County District Court, ac-
cording to the KDUZ/KARP
Radio website.
Kyle N. Grams, 35, admit-
ted to selling the corn to
United Grain Systems under
his own name and keeping
the money on two different
occasions last year.
The first incident involved
919 bushels of corn that
Grams sold for over $5,700.
The second incident involved
957 bushels of corn worth
more than $7, 500. That
money, however, was with-
held from him due to the sus-
picious nature of the transac-
tion.
Grams, who claimed that
he was in financial need at
the time, faces up to 10 years
in prison. Sentencing has
been set for later this week.
Guilty plea entered in corn theft

A Sibley County dairy
farmer faces new charges, ac-
cording to Minnesota Public
Radio.
Michael Hartmann faces
two misdemeanor charges re-
lated to a traffic stop in Hen-
nepin County on Tuesday,
Dec. 4, 2012. A state trooper
pulled Hartmann’s delivery
truck over because he al-
legedly could not see the rear
license.
According to the criminal
complaint, Hartmann was al-
legedly evasive about the
contents of the truck. The
state trooper inspected the
truck and allegedly found
milk, cheese and empty egg
cartons.
A state agriculture depart-
ment analysis allegedly
showed the milk and cheese
were unpasteurized.
Hartmann was charged
with the sale of unpasteurized
milk and selling improperly
labeled cheese.
Hartmann pleaded guilty to
similar charges last October.
Minnesota law permits the
sale of unpasteurized prod-
ucts only on the farm where
the food is produced.
Sibley County dairy farmer faces new charges
the mayor and City Council
and Brimeyer Fursman agree
that all phases of the process
have been successfully com-
pleted. Should the mayor and
City Council determine it nec-
essary to terminate the city
administrator due to failure to
adequately perform the duties
as specified in the profile and
as represented by the process,
the firm will refill the position
at no additional fee and will
charge for expenses only.

The search for a new superintendent at the Sibley East Pub-
lic Schools is almost complete. The School Board, after a
thorough process, is expected to offer the position to a final
candidate during a special meeting in Arlington on Tuesday
night, Feb. 12.
People, of course, will have a variety of thoughts and opin-
ions on the selection of the final candidate, but it will be dif-
ficult for these same individuals to criticize the process to
date.
The School Board, with the assistance from the South Cen-
tral Service Cooperative, has organized a very open process
to involve citizens from throughout the school district.
The process began with community meetings last fall. More
recently, citizens have had the chance to attend the interviews
with the four semi-finalists although few people have taken
advantage of that opportunity. In addition, citizens will have
an opportunity to meet the two finalists during separate can-
didate meetings in Arlington from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. Monday,
Feb. 11 and Tuesday, Feb. 12.
Furthermore, South Central Service Cooperative consultant
Ed Waltman and Interim Superintendent John Langenbrunner
have frequently and quickly provided informational updates
to the Arlington Enterprise and have responded to any con-
cerns or questions raised by this newspaper.
The process has been very open to date and that is what the
citizens should expect and deserve.
The School Board, in less than a week, will finalize a move
to hire the next superintendent for the Sibley East Public
Schools. The move to hire a superintendent to lead the school
district in the future is probably the most important decision
the School Board will ever make. Good luck.

Senate Republican Leader
Every family in Minnesota will
see a tax increase under Governor
Mark Dayton’s new budget propos-
al, which was released last week in
St. Paul. While Democrat and Re-
publican governors across the coun-
try are cutting taxes and lowering
spending to help grow our economy,
Governor Dayton calls for $3.6 bil-
lion in new taxes, and increases state
spending by almost eight percent.
In Dayton’s sales tax plan, the
state will collect an additional $2.1
billion from new taxes on a variety
of goods and services that will be
paid by all Minnesotans.
You may have heard that Gover-
nor Dayton proposes to add sales tax
to oil changes and other car services,
haircuts, digital books and music
(digital downloads) and over-the-
counter medications.
Under Dayton’s plan, clothing
items over $100 – like work boots,
snowsuits, and wedding dresses –
would now be taxed.
He also proposes to tax health
club memberships, manicures and
pedicures, and veterinarian services.
Legal services, taking a taxicab,
and buying a magazine or newspa-
per would now cost more because it
would include the new sales tax.
Dance lessons, retirement plan-
ning services, travel agents, interior
decorating and snow plow services
would also be taxed under Governor
Dayton’s plan.
The State of Minnesota, under
Dayton’s plan, will collect an aver-
age of $389 more in sales tax from
every Minnesotan to invest in more
government-run programs that we
simply do not need. This means a
family of four would pay $1,556
more per year.
In addition to sales tax increases,
there are a variety of other taxes
under Dayton’s plan, such as tax in-
crease on businesses to business
services and an income tax rate in-
crease of 25 percent on some fami-
lies.
Looking at the details of the Gov-
ernor’s spending proposals, there is
no new reform or initiatives that jus-
tify this kind of increase. It is simply
the same old increases to the same
old programs being conducted in the
same old ways. Minnesotans will
enjoy the same government services
as before – just at a higher price.
Republicans oppose raising taxes
on families to balance our budget.
Two years ago we solved a $6 bil-
lion deficit by slowing the growth of
government and spending without
eliminating essential services that
Minnesotans need.
Our focus this legislative session
will be to balance the state budget
without placing additional burdens
on Minnesota families. The Gover-
nor’s expansive state budget re-
quires that every family’s budget
gets smaller. We need to work to-
gether, Republicans and Democrats,
on practical solutions that grow the
economy and provide opportunities
for all Minnesota families.
Dayton’s new taxes on Minnesota families
To The Editor,
We would like to express our grat-
itude to everyone who contributed to
the Santa’s Helpers Program in any
way this holiday season. Our heart-
felt thanks goes out to the individu-
als, groups and businesses from the
communities of Sibley County who
donated gifts, money, hats, mittens
and quilts, to American Lutheran
Church for housing the event, and to
the volunteers who donated more
than 200 hours to the program. Be-
cause of your generosity, 554 chil-
dren were able to receive gifts.
Thank you all for opening your
hearts to children and families in
need and making their holiday sea-
son a little brighter.

To The Editor,
Governor Mark Dayton claims
that his budget contains significant
tax reforms. Unfortunately, it is
largely a tax plan consisting of high-
er taxes and increased spending. His
plan does offer a reduced sales tax
rate, but at the expense of a broad
tax expansion on clothing and serv-
ices. Additionally, his homeowners’
property tax rebate does little in the
way of reforming a complicated and
burdensome property tax system
that does not help renters or com-
mercial business owners. Below are
a few highlights of the Governor’s
new tax plan under his 2014-2015
budget plan:
-- $2.1 billion of new sales taxes,
including:
• Clothing over $100 per item
(coats, shoes)
• Admissions and memberships
(health clubs, YMCA)
• Over the counter drugs (Advil)
• Personal care services and in-
structions (haircuts)
• Legal accounting (tax services,
family will)
• Auto services (oil changes, auto
tune ups)
• Online purchase (Amazon, Ebay,
iTunes)
• See comprehensive list here:
http://www.minnpost.com/political-
agenda/2013/01/taxed-or-not-heres-
list-items-and-out-daytons-sales-tax-
plan
-- Income Tax Changes
• 2 percent income increase on:
• $250,000 married, $200,000
Head of Household, $150,000 indi-
vidual
• Would make Minnesota the
fourth highest income tax state in
the nation
• “Snowbird tax” – would extend
income tax to part-year residents
who maintain a house in Minnesota
for at least six months
• No reform
-- Real Estate Tax
• $500 tax rebate for FY 2014-
2015 to all Minnesota homesteads
• Zero rebate for renters
• Zero rebate for commercial or
recreational real estate
• No reform on homestead, com-
mercial and recreational real estate
taxes
-- Other Significant Tax Changes:
• Temporary suspension of auto-
matic annual increase on commer-
cial statewide property tax (real es-
tate), no reform on underlining tax
• $.94 per pack additional tax on
cigarettes
• Significant increase Local Gov-
ernment Aid funding for St. Paul,
Minneapolis and Duluth
I would support a reform of our
current tax system. In fact, I believe
it is much needed. However, I be-
lieve that we should focus on reduc-
ing our overall tax burden, not sim-
ply increase it by over $2 billion and
call it reform.

History
80 Years Ago
February 9, 1933
Louis Kill, Editor
Gaining entrance by jimmy-
ing the lock on the front door,
burglars robbed the local post
office Sunday night, and got
away with cash and stamps to
the amount of about $450. They
opened the safe from which the
loot was obtained by knocking
the dial off the combination, and
then drove the mechanism into
the interior of the safe, thereby
releasing the bolts on the door.
The robbery here was the tenth
of a series of post office rob-
beries in the southern part of the
state this winter. It was evident-
ly carried out by a gang of pro-
fessionals who are operating in
this section.
Thirty years ago Arlington’s
most flourishing industry was
the brickyard owned and oper-
ated by Mike Foley, and located
on the extreme east end of Main
Street on the banks of the creek.
The yard, which occupied the
flats on the left hand side of the
hill leading down to the creek,
consisted of many buildings,
huge burning kilns and row
upon row of low buildings, open
at the sides, which contained
drying racks. Practically all of
the older brick buildings in the
village are constructed of
Foley’s brick. All of the homes
on the east side of the village
are made of brick from Foley’s
yard. Mr. Foley sold the busi-
ness to Jos. Wikde who conduct-
ed it for a few years but failed to
make a success of it.
Messrs. Dick Hillemann,
Louie Nieland and Harvey
Kurtzweg, big game hunters of
the West Arlington community,
trailed a lone timber wolf last
Thursday afternoon and finally
bagged the animal on the Got-
tfried Kamps farm in Green Isle
Township. It was a young fe-
male, and the boys will receive
$20 bounty for their kill.

The bride is the daughter of
Mrs. Dorothy Trebelhorn Hueb-
ner of Arlington. Mr. Mc-
Cormick, whose parental home
is in Minneapolis, is employed
at the Phillips 66 station in this
city.
Fire Chief W. J. Schneider
was honored at a smorgasbord
supper Wednesday evening at
Vern’s cafe in recognition of 25
years of faithful service as head
of Arlington’s fire department.
State Fire Marshal Howard
Thomas was present, as were
also a number of fire chiefs from
neighboring towns. The fire de-
partment presented their chief
with a plaque suitably inscribed
as a momento for his many
years of service.
The school house from Dis-
trict 31, purchased by the Amer-
ican Legion Post 408, was
moved into Green Isle last week
and will be remodeled into a
club house. The boys put in
many hours of hard work get-
ting the building moved. Voight
Bros. contributed their moving
equipment and under the super-
vision of Adjutant Ed Hogan,
the building was safely landed
on the lot adjoining the service
garage in the Michaletz addition
on the west side.

Death Notice
A marriage series “Expe-
riencing God’s Dream For
Your Marriage” by Chip In-
gram will be held at the Ar-
lington United Methodist
Church. If you are looking
to ignite the hopes and
dreams you have for your
marriage or upcoming mar-
riage this series is for you.
Chip Ingram writes:
“Marriage is a wonderful
gift from God and provides
us an opportunity to share
the journey of life with an-
other person. We are hard-
wired with a need to be-
long, to be connected, to be
loved and give love. When
we stand and exchange our
vows and pledge our love
we have such high hopes
and dreams. But, marriage
is hard and often those
dreams turn to nightmares.
Hope gets replaced with
hurt. Passion is exchanged
for pain. And, romance
turns to resentment. Mar-
riage does not have to end
in disappointment. It really
actually can be a love story
with a happy ending.”
This series will guide you
through basic steps to make
your marriage positive,
rich, intimate, and deeply
satisfying. Each session be-
gins with a video tape fol-
lowed by small group dis-
cussions.
A separate Children’s
Video Bible Study will be
conducted during the ses-
sions for those of you who
would like your children to
attend.
These family study
nights will begin February
17 and continue each Sun-
day night from 6:30 p.m. to
8 p.m. for six sessions.
You may sign up by

Editor’s Note: The follow-
ing article was submitted by
the Good Samaritan Society -
Arlington.
Early in his career, Gerry
Berglin began working with
seniors through the Area
Agency on Aging. He later
got into nursing home admin-
istration at the suggestion of
his mother-in-law (who vol-
unteered at the local care cen-
ter) and father-in-law (who
was on the advisory board of
the care center) They recog-
nized his caring ways and his
abilities and felt he had the
potential to be successful in
an administrative role.
Gerry continued his school-
ing and became certified as
administrator. Knowing that
he wanted to work for a not-
for-profit or church related
organization led him to Good
Samaritan where he complet-
ed an internship in East
Grand Forks from 1979 to
1980 and then worked as an
administrator and executive
director in Hastings, Neb.,
until 1988. At this time, he
left the Society and moved
into the “for-profit” senior
care world (a move he later
regretted). The caring atmos-
phere that Good Samaritan is
known for is part of what
brought Gerry back to the So-
ciety. He came on as an in-
terim administrator in
Howard Lake in 2008 fol-
lowed by another interim po-
sition in Arlington which has
turned into a permanent posi-
tion.
Some of the changes that
stand out to him include the
heavier level of care provided
in care centers at the present
time.
“Now people come to nurs-
ing homes with more signifi-
cant issues therefore are more
frail,” said Gerry. “On the
other side of the coin there
has been an increase in short-
term care – short-term stays
after surgeries or illness with
the resident returning to their
home is more common.”
‘The Continuum of Care
Model’ wasn’t there like it is
now . . . having the ability to
provide home care, senior
housing, assisted living,
skilled nursing and rehab care
for the benefit of persons in
the community are a great
evolution!”
Gerry continued, “Addi-
tionally, nursing homes used
to be on a sound financial
basis – they now are strug-
gling because the financing
structure is not there because
of legislative decisions – this
makes it much more difficult
to operate even at a break
even point.”
Gerry has enjoyed Arling-
ton.
“It’s a great place, being in-
volved in the Chamber of
Commerce was something I
liked.” Gerry said.
More memorable experi-
ences? “Jillions!” he
laughed. “I’m proud of the
completion of Phase I of the
renovation project at the care
center. In the past four years
there has been a significant
amount of remodeling done
and new equipment put in
place.”
Gerry continued, “The peo-
ple -- residents, staff and
community members will be
missed . . . the ‘characters’
that have been a part of our
campus will provide memo-
ries that will make me smile.”
Deciding to move forward
to retirement was a decision
Gerry and his wife, Linda,
were able to make in unison.
Gerry and Linda (who retired
in January from Hamline
University) are looking for-
ward to traveling, reading,
spending time with grandchil-
dren and becoming more in-
volved in their church and
their local community.

The Boy Scouts of America is one of the nation's largest and most prominent values-based youth development
organizations. The BSA provides a program for young people that builds character, trains them in the responsi-
bilities of participating citizenship, and develops personal fitness. For nearly a century, the BSA has helped
build the future leaders of this country by combining educational activities and lifelong values with fun. The
Boy Scouts of America believes — and, through nearly a century of experience, knows — that helping youth
is a key to building a more conscientious, responsible, and productive society.

at all times;
to keep myself physically

and morally straight.

The purpose of the Boy Scouts of America — incorporat-
ed on Feb. 8, 1910, and chartered by Congress in 1916 —
