Frozen water service lines at 4 locations in Green Isle
By Kurt Menk Editor Frozen water service lines were discussed during the regular meeting of the Green Isle City Council on Tuesday night, March 11. City Clerk Bert Panning said there have been reports of four frozen water service lines in the community. In an effort to prevent frozen water service lines, residents “may want to have a continuous flow of water to your home by opening a faucet and allow it to run continuously. A stream the size of a pencil seems to be the most common that is recommended,” according to a notice distributed in the community. The City of Green Isle, according to Panning, will adjust the next utility bill accordingly, Panning said. The city may look at the water usage from one year ago and bill based on that information. The city may also average the water usage from the past two utility bills. The City Council will decide the best billing option at its next regular meeting. It will try to be as fair as possible. In the meantime, “the main thing is to eliminate the freezing if possible,” according to the notice. The risk of frozen water service lines could continue for several weeks. Residents and business owners who decide to open their faucet for a continuous flow of water are encouraged to contact the Green Isle City Office at 507-326-3901 or email greenislecityhall@frontier.com.
Zoning Ordinance
The City Council unanimously adopted a resolution to repeal and replace the zoning ordinance in the City of Green Isle. The City Council made the move after it conducted a public hearing and listened to a presentation from Cynthia Smith-Strack, Municipal Development Group, Inc. The zoning ordinance was last repealed and replaced in the mid 1970’s, according to Smith-Strack. A summary of the zoning ordinance appears on page 7 in this week’s edition of the Arlington Enterprise. The complete zoning ordinance can be viewed at the Green Isle City Office.
The City Council, in other business, unanimously approved a motion to accept a proposal from P.V. Carpentry, Henderson, to install five windows at the Green Isle Community School this summer. The cost will be $2,075.

County Commissioners talk about possible restructure of Emergency Management staff
By Karin R. Cornwell Manager The Sibley County Board of Commissioners discussed the possibility of restructuring the staffing within the Emergency Management Office with the county’s Emergency Management Director Bryan Gorman at its regular meeting on Tuesday, March 11. The office is currently budgeted to be staffed by two part-time positions, the director at 25 hours per week and a deputy at 15 hours per week. The deputy position is currently not filled, after the previous deputy left late last year. Gorman brought to the board a plan to restructure the director’s position to a full-time position. The change would be at a $10,000 increase to the department’s budget. Gorman expressed the difficultly they have had keeping a 15-hour per week position staffed. He added that a lot of time and money is spent on advertising, hiring and training a new person. County Commissioner Jim Swanson added the same could be said in keeping a 25- hour per week director. He added that having a full-time position with benefits would provide more stability and continuity to the department. County Board Chairperson Joy Cohrs asked about the state requirement of having a two-person staff. Gorman said that the state does mandate that there are two designated people, a director and a deputy. The second person does not have to be an employee of the department. In Renville County, the sheriff acts as the deputy and in McLeod County a bailiff is the deputy to the emergency management director. The sheriff’s department has said that this arrangement could be a possibility. Gorman also informed the board that the Minnesota Department of Public Safety is pushing for counties to grow their emergency management efforts. He also informed the board that there is a threeyear federal and state grant available. The grant would be worth a total of $45,000, payable as $20,000 the first year, $15,000 the second year, and $10,000 the third year. County Commissioner Bill Pinske was in favor of pursuing the grant before making a final decision about the staffing changes. Gorman will start the grant process and the board will review the required resolution at its next board meeting.

Good Samaritan Society - Arlington achieves good results in health survey
The Good Samaritan Society - Arlington is celebrating good results in a recent state health survey, according to Administrator Don Alexander. The Minnesota Department of Health issued one minor deficiency to the center in January. Surveys are conducted to ensure nursing homes meet state and federal standards, which regulate how care must be provided to residents. The center’s deficiency was administering eye drops too quickly, Alexander said. This was easily corrected by waiting a few more seconds between applying the drops. At the center, surveyors interviewed a variety of staff members, family members and residents. They reviewed quality of care and quality of life, observances of residents’ rights, and whether the center meets environmental standards of cleanliness and is hazard-free. “The hard work of staff and volunteers was evident during our annual state survey,” said Alexander. “We provide excellent long-term and rehabilitative care for our community.” The Evangelical Lutheran Good Samaritan Society is the nation’s largest not-forprofit provider of senior care and services, with more than 240 locations across the country, including Good Samaritan Society - Arlington. The Good Samaritan Society’s mission is to share God’s love in word and deed by providing shelter and supportive services to older persons and others in need, believing that “In Christ’s Love, Everyone Is Someone.”

City of Winnebago is without police chief for third time in 4 months
The City of Winnebago is once again looking for a police chief, according to a report on KEYC TV, Mankato. This is the third time since Nov. 30 that the city has seen the position become open. It has again started up the application process last week. After former Police Chief Bob Toland’s retirement at the end of November, the city hired a new police chief in January. However, just 10 days into the position he moved to a different district. Toland stepped back in to fill the vacated position, but has since tendered his resignation

on March 1. Currently, the two full-time officers and the sheriff's office are filling in as necessary until the role is staffed. Winnebago City Administrator Chris Ziegler said 'A little bit of a challenge, you get a curve ball every once in a while. Takes you a little bit to recover, but it’s somewhat expected and we just get to roll with the punches.” There are currently eight or nine candidates who have submitted an application and the city council hopes to have a decision made by the end of April.

Heavily packed snow is finally beginning to melt
With temperatures warming this week throughout Minnesota, the heavily packed snow is finally beginning to melt, according to the KNUJ Radio website. National Weather Service Meteorologist Joe Calderone said that with temperatures for the majority of the week expected to be in the mid and upper 40s, the state should lose five to eight inches of the existing snow pack. He said a probable lack of heavy precipitation in coming weeks may slow down any potential flooding. In addition, Calderone said the snowpack may have a very positive impact on the coming planting season as it melts. Arlington and Green Isle lost several inches of snowpack during the past few days.

Arlington is fortunate to be a thriving rural community
Our View: Most rural communities are not as fortunate in Minnesota
Arlington no doubt has its issues and problems like other small towns across Minnesota, but it is far more fortunate than other rural communities around the state. With great leadership over the years and some luck, the Arlington community is fortunate to have a steady increase in population, low property taxes, an up-to-date water and wastewater infrastructure, plans for an upgraded electricial system, dedicated emergency services departments and personnel, improved streets, a newer community center and city office, a renovated hospital and clinic, a renovated nursing home, two schools dedicated to education, newer assisted living facilities, a variety of parks, many churches, a full Main Street business community, a line of businesses along a refurbished highway, a large company that provides a number of jobs, a theatre with a bright marque, a railroad that continues to be renovated, civic organizations that give back to the community, and good people. The list goes on and on. Arlington is far from perfect and has its struggles, but it is very fortunate compared to other small towns around the state. The main reason most rural communities have struggled and continue to struggle is because they have been ignored by the State Legislature as a whole for years. Money and resources continue to be pumped into the big cities and regional centers around the state while the small rural towns have been neglected. The first step to right this wrong is for rural legislators from both sides of the aisle to stop their bickering and band together for the good of all rural communities. The second step is for these legislators to create a plan/vision and invest in rural Minnesota. Until this happens, small rural towns will continue to struggle and become even more dependent on the big cities and regional centers. -K.M.
Letters To The Editor
Snow and more snow this winter
To The Editor, I was told many many years ago to give flowers before the funeral. I would like to compliment Jason Lovaas, City of Arlington Public Works, Klehr Grading and William Mueller & Sons for a job well done in removing snow from our streets. This has been a very challenging year for all of us in the Midwest. Reminds me of the winters from years gone by. I have lived in many different cities, and seeing how they do their snow plowing, Arlington is right up there with the best. After losing Dan Thomes last year, I wondered if the city would find a person capable of filling those big shoes? In my opinion, Jason is doing a good job and is working his way into those shoes. Again, Hats off to the snow removal crew. Jim Heiland Arlington

There were audible gasps around the table, then some laughter, as his older brothers shared their disbelief that he could handle this new situation. “Oh, come on, quit joking,” snickered one. “You didn’t really do that, did you?” “You would never get through basic training,” scoffed another. Finally, his father spoke up. “It’s going to take a lot of discipline. Are you ready for that?” The new recruit looked to his mother for help, but she was just gazing at him. When she spoke, she simply asked, “Do you really plan to make your own bed every morning?” ***** An eight year old boy is walking down the road one day when a car pulls over next to him. “If you get in the car,” the driver says, “I’ll give you $10 and a piece of candy.” The boy refuses and keeps on walking. A few moments later, not to take no for an answer, the man driving the car pulls over again. “How about $20 and two pieces of candy?” The boy tells the man to leave him alone and keeps on walking. Still further down the road the man pulls over to the side of the road. “OK,” he says, “this is my final offer. I’ll give you $50 and all the candy you can eat.” The little boy stops, goes to the car and leans in. “Look,” he says to the driver. “You bought this ugly station wagon when everyone else got cool SUVs, Dad, but that doesn’t mean I have to be seen riding in it!” ***** Bob had been shopping downtown all day with his wife and four little children. They were all so tired, he decided to take a taxicab home. Approaching a cab driver, he demanded, “How much will you charge to drive us to the Bronx?” “I figure $5 apiece for you and your wife,” said the driver. “I’ll take the four kids along for nothing.” Bob turned to his children and said, “Jump in kids, and have a nice ride home. Momma and I will take the subway.” ***** An enthusiastic door-to-door vacuum salesman goes to the first house in his new territory. He knocks. A lady opens the door, and before she has a chance to say anything, he runs inside and dumps cow patties all over the carpet. He says, “Lady, if this vacuum cleaner doesn’t do wonders cleaning this up, I’ll eat every chunk of it.” She turns to him with a smirk and says, “You want ketchup on that?” The salesman says, “Why do you ask?” She says, “We just moved in and we haven’t got the electricity turned on yet.”
Taxes hurt businesses and job growth
To The Editor, Last week I joined all but two of my colleagues in voting to undo just some of the mistakes made by Democrats last year. HF1777 did two very important things: it repealed three business-to-business taxes passed in 2013 that were hurting Minnesota businesses and resulting in higher costs for Minnesota families, and conformed much of Minnesota's tax code to the federal tax code, restoring several important tax breaks on things like employer-provided tuition assistance, among many others. I’m encouraged that Democrats are finally realizing what Republicans have said all along: these taxes are hurting Minnesota businesses and hurts job growth, and should never have been passed in the first place. Republicans voted unanimously to pass this bill, and consider it an important first step. With a $1.2 billion surplus, there's no excuse for government to hold on to your money. Republicans have proposed to give that money back where it belongs: in your pocket. The $1.2 billion surplus is an indication that Minnesotans are taxed too much, and I firmly believe we need to look for additional taxes to repeal, or other ways to ease the tax burden on Minnesota families and businesses. The bill now awaits action in the Senate. If passed by the Senate, it will head to the Governor for his signature. I will be sure to keep you updated on efforts to give you back your hard-earned tax dollars. Glenn Gruenhagen State Representative R-Glencoe
MN senators vote to give away your rights
To The Editor, When our U.S Senators are elected, they take an Oath of Office. Per the U.S. Senate website the oath states, “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.” Several months ago, there was a United Nations Small Arms Treaty which would have placed a global ban on the import and export of small arms. This treaty contained language to implement an international gun registry on all private guns and ammo. This issue isn’t whether or not you support the Second Amendment. The treaty could have been about the first, fourth, fifteenth, or any other Amendments to the Constitution of the United States. The issue is whether our U.S. Senators failed to uphold their Oath of Office. According to the U.S. Senate website, the Statement of Purpose for Amendment 139 said: “To uphold Second Amendment rights and prevent the United States from entering into the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty.” Of the 100 Senators in the United States, 46 voted to hand over our rights to a foreign power. Franken and Klobachar voted with the 46. Is this an act of treason? Are these Senators traitors? If these Senators are so willing to give away one of our rights, what would stop them from giving away any of the other rights given to American citizens? The answer to these questions are for each Minnesotan to decide. Bobbie Harder Le Sueur

Where Congress falls shorts, where it doesn’t
By Lee H. Hamilton At a public gathering the other day, someone asked me how I’d sum up my views on Congress. It was a good question, because it forced me to step back from worrying about the current politics of Capitol Hill and take a longer view. Congress, I said, does some things fairly well. Its members for the most part want to serve their constituents and the country. They may be ambitious — it’s hard to be a successful politician if you’re not — but they’re not motivated primarily by personal interest. Most are people of integrity who have chosen to try to advance the national interest and are willing to work within our agitated political environment. They also strive to reflect their constituents’ views. They’re not always successful at this — I think members of Congress tend to underappreciate voters’ pragmatism and over-estimate their ideological purity. Still, they’re politicians: their success rests on being accessible to their constituents, understanding what they want, and aligning themselves with that interest. For all the attractive individual qualities that members of Congress display, however, their institutional performance falls short. Talented though they are, the institution they serve does not work very well. They argue endlessly, pander to contributors and powerful interests, posture both in the media and in countless public meetings, and in the end produce very little. They discuss and debate a lot of problems, but don’t create effective results. This may be because many members of our national legislature have a constricted view of what it means to be a legislator. They’re satisfied with making a political statement by giving a speech, casting a vote, or getting a bill through the chamber they serve in, rather than writing legislation that will make it through both houses of Congress, get signed

Rehearsal dates are set for the Minnesota Over 60 Band
Grab that band instrument, dust it off and join the Minnesota Over 60 Band. Playing music is a lifelong activity, and a group of Minnesotans who perform around the state are a testament to that reality. The Minnesota Over 60 band is made up primarily of members who are 60 and older (men and women) who perform in numerous parades, at county fairs and in a variety of other venues during the summer. There are openings in every section of the band. The band even has a few members younger than 60, so if that is you, and you have an interest, give us a try. While the group started in Gaylord back in 1953 as the Sibley County Senior Citizens Hobby Band, the group continued to expand, so six decades later the group includes people from a wide variety of communities and walks of life, and who have a mutual interest in music as a hobby. The Minnesota Over 60 band was inducted into the Minnesota Music Hall of Fame in 2003. The Minnesota Over 60 Band will hold rehearsals at the Arlington Community Center on Friday, May 2, 9, 16 and 30. Each rehearsal includes two practices from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. and from 1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. Performances begin in June and continue into September. For more information about the Minnesota Over 60 Band, call 507-934-6103.

by the President, and become a law. Their aim seems to be partisan and ideological, rather than a constructive effort to solve the nation’s problems. Similarly, they undermine their ability to oversee the executive branch by conducting hearings for political gain rather than to scrutinize government activities or develop effective policy directives. Many of our representatives have become so reliant on their staff for knowledge about public policy and the details of federal agencies that in off-the-cuff debate they can be untethered and misinformed. Small wonder that Congress has had trouble being productive. The days appear to be over when members of Congress strove to be masters of their subject matter and legislators in fact as well as in name. Forced to spend so much time raising money and listening to well-heeled people and groups, they also seem to have trouble seeing current afSounds like multiplication?

They fall captive to the politics of any given issue, rather than thinking about the much harder question of how you govern a country with all its residents in mind. They don’t see the necessity, in a divided Congress and a divided country, of negotiation and compromise. Congressional tradition has created a legislative process that should encourage factfinding, searching for remedies, and finding common ground. It should not work solely by majority rule; decisions spring from consultation with many voices, balancing minority and majority views, and fair-minded process. This is not what today’s members of Congress do, however. Instead, they short-circuit the committee process; fail to do their homework; dwell on talking points put together by staff and others; give too much power to their leaders; pay too little attention to deliberation; allow insufficient opportunity to debate and vote on major policy amendments; and in general make a mess of the budget — the basic operating instructions for the government. Process may not be everything, but good process enhances the chance of getting things right — and with each passing year, Congress forgets more and more about what good process looks like. Plenty of forces are responsible for this state of affairs, from the outsized role of money in the political process to today’s hyper-partisanship to TV-driven sound-bite debates. But in the end, it’s still a source of great frustration to the American people, me included, that well-meaning, talented individuals cannot make the institution work better.

Learn how to make maple syrup at state parks in Minnesota
Tap into a sweet Minnesota tradition by learning how to make maple syrup at Minnesota state parks this spring. Naturalists will demonstrate the process at free programs in March and early April, according to the Department of Natural Resources. “We’ll teach you how to identify the right kind of tree, drill a hole for a spile, collect sap in a bucket and then boil it until it’s tasty enough to pour on your pancakes,” said Kao Thao, naturalist at Fort Snelling State Park in St. Paul, where maple-syrupmaking demonstrations will take place on four of the five weekends in March. “Once you see how it’s done, it’s easy to do it yourself in your own backyard.” Generally, sap runs best from about March 15 to April 20, when temperatures are in the high 30s to mid-40s during the day and below freezing at night. It usually takes 30 to 40 gallons of sap from a sugar maple tree to get a gallon of pure maple syrup. The maple syrup programs at Minnesota state parks are free, but vehicle permits are required to enter the parks. Some parks encourage dropping by any time to watch ongoing demonstrations, others offer more structured, stepby-step instruction. Due to space limitations, some programs also require advance registration. Find more information, including the complete 2014 maple syrup program schedule, online or visit or call the DNR Information Center at 651-296-6157 or toll-free 888-646-6367 between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Deer hunters are invited to attend one of a series of listening sessions jointly hosted by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources and the Minnesota Deer Hunters Association (MDHA). “We’ve been hearing that deer numbers are too low and this year’s severe winter is exacerbating those concerns in many regions of the state,” said Leslie McInenly, DNR big game program leader. “These listening sessions will give deer hunters and the general public an opportunity to communicate directly with DNR staff who make deer management decisions.”
“Deer populations and health are important to MDHA members and all deer hunters,” said Mark Johnson, MDHA executive director. “We’re pleased to be able to offer these meetings so people regardless of their affiliation or interest can express their opinions on deer populations.” All listening sessions will be from 7-9 p.m. For Arlington-Green Isle area residents, a listening session will be held at the Nicollet Conservation Club, 46045 471st Lane, Nicollet, from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Thursday, March 27.

FSA Matters
By Peggy Read CED Sibley County FSA Reconstitutions For FSA program purposes, tracts having the same owner and the same operator are grouped under one farm serial number. When changes in ownership or operation take place, a farm reconstitution is necessary. The reconstitution—or recon—is the process of combining or dividing farms or tracts of land based on the farming operation. Remember, to be effective for the current year, recons must be requested by August 1 for farms enrolled in specific programs. The following are the different methods used when doing a farm recon: • Estate Method - the division of bases, allotments and quotas for a parent farm among heirs in settling an estate; • Designation of Landowner Method – may be used when (1) part of a farm is sold or ownership is transferred; (2) an entire farm is sold to two or more persons; (3) farm ownership is transferred to two or more persons; (4) part of a tract is sold or ownership is transferred; (5) a tract is sold to two or more persons; or (6) tract ownership is transferred to two or more persons. In order to use this method the land sold must have been owned for at least three years, or a waiver granted, and the buyer and seller must sign a Memorandum of Understanding; • DCP Cropland Method the division of bases in the same proportion that the DCP cropland for each resulting tract relates to the DCP cropland on the parent tract; • Default Method - the division of bases for a parent farm with each tract maintaining the bases attributed to the tract level when the reconstitution is initiated in the system. During this time producers are preparing for what farms they will have in 2014. Please let the FSA office know as soon as possible so we can update files and perform any recons prior to the hectic time of certification as well as implementing the new farm bill as information becomes available. Plans of Breaking New Ground? Agricultural producers are reminded to consult with FSA and NRCS before breaking out new ground for production as doing so without prior authorization may put a producer’s federal farm program benefits in jeopardy. This is especially true for land that must meet Highly Erodible Land (HEL) and Wetland Conservation (WC) provisions. Producers with HEL determined soils must apply tillage, crop residue and rotation requirements as specified in their conservation plan. Producers should notify FSA prior to conducting land clearing or drainage projects to ensure compliance. If you intend to clear any trees to create new cropland, these areas will need to be reviewed to ensure any work will not risk your eligibility for benefits. Landowners and operators can complete form AD-1026 Highly Erodible Land Conservation (HELC) and Wetland Conservation (WC) Certification to determine whether a referral to Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) is necessary.

Snow melt poses challenges for livestock manure management
As winter gives way to spring, rapid snow melt and potential for flooding pose challenges for farmers who spread livestock manure on cropland. Farmers who spread solid manure during winter, must ensure that it doesn’t run off with snowmelt flowing to ditches, streams and other waters. Manure-contaminated runoff not only threatens water quality, it reduces the value of manure as a crop nutrient. If possible, farmers should refrain from spreading manure during periods of rapid melt. Minnesota rules to protect water quality require a 300-foot setback from surface waters and open tile intakes for all manure spread onto frozen or snow-covered soil. In Wisconsin, where state rules place some restrictions on land application of livestock manure in winter, farmers can use a “manure management advisory system” to help make decisions. The webpage provides maps that forecast the risk of run-off on a daily basis, and tools for longer term planning. www.manureadvisorysystem.wi.gov/. “We are exploring having a similar system in Minnesota,” says Randall Hukriede, Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) feedlot program manager. The MPCA administers state rules for feedlots to help facilitate industry practices that protect water quality. “Our primary goal is to ensure a balance between a healthy livestock industry and healthy natural environment.” If temporary stockpiling is not possible and manure land application can’t wait, to help reduce the impact of manure applied to the surface of wet, frozen or snow covered soil, choose the flattest field or flattest parts of fields and follow these guidelines: • Field slope should be less than six percent for solid manure, and two percent for liquid manure. • Do not apply non-incorporated manure within 300 feet of surface waters. If possible apply manure at even greater setback distances. • Do not apply in portions of fields that contain other areas of concentrated flow. A 300-foot setback is required for intermittent streams; however most fields also contain other areas such as grass waterways that receive concentrated flow. Keep back as far as possible from these other areas of concentrated flow. • Choose fields that contain the most crop residue; greater than 30 percent is recommended. • Avoid fields where the furrows are full of ice and snow. • Keep application rates low enough to avoid runoff or ponding during application. • Choose fields that do not have adjacent non-tillable land containing areas of concentrated flow such as ravines, ditches with open side inlets, streams or dry runs. If this is not possible, stay as far away as possible from these off-field areas of concentrated flow. When applying manure on snow-covered or frozen soils, producers should avoid high risk periods of runoff: Two or more inches of snow on the ground and maximum temperatures are forecast to exceed 40 degrees within 24 hours, or when there is a prediction of .25 inches of rain forecast within 24 hours. “Producers should consider short-term stockpiling of manure in the field until after the major snowmelt of the year,” says Wayne Cords, MPCA feedlot program southeast region supervisor. “While this does involve additional time and labor, there are significant benefits in the reduced pollution potential, as one well-placed short-term stockpile poses significantly less pollution hazard than a whole field of surface-applied manure.” “Producers who are considering surface applying manure to snow covered or frozen soils should work with a crop consultant and complete a Minnesota Phosphorus Index model to determine the phosphorus loss risk, and then choose fields with the lowest risk value to winterapply,” Cords says. “And NPDES-permitted sites need to carefully read their permit as they have additional requirements and restrictions when applying manure to frozen or snow covered soils.”
Sibley County Fair Board receives a $1,000 grant
The Sibley County Agricultural Association (Sibley County Fair Board) recently received a $1000 grant from the Minnesota Valley Electric Cooperative for ventilation of the old Commercial Building #21 which will now be an animal barn starting in 2014. The Operation Round Up Grant, made possible through the Minnesota Valley Electric Cooperative program where members round up their electric bills to the nearest dollar, will make a much needed climate control in a traditional over heated building on the fairgrounds. The change in building use was part of the plan made possible as the fair board constructs the new Heritage Center. The new building will house stage, dressing rooms, entertainment and new commercial booths area. The new building shell is now approaching completion with final work to be completed this spring and grand opening the first day of the fair on Wednesday, July 30. The 2014 Sibley County Fair will run from Wednesday, July 30 through Sunday, Aug. 3.

Spring grain drying and storage critical
By Dave Nicolai U of M Regional Extension Educator, Crops As outdoor temperatures increase, stored grain requires attention to prevent losses, says Ken Hellevang, North Dakota State University Extension Service agricultural engineer and grain drying expert. The stored grain temperature increases in the spring due to an increase in outdoor temperatures and solar heat gain on the bin. Solar energy produces more than twice as much heat gain on the south wall of a bin in early spring as it does during the summer. Periodically run aeration fans to keep the grain temperature below 30 degrees until the grain is dried if it exceeds recommended storage moisture contents and below 40 degrees during the spring if it is dry. Stored grain should be monitored closely to detect any storage problems early, Hellevang advises. Grain temperature and moisture content should be checked every two weeks during the spring and summer. Grain also should be examined for insect infestations. Check the moisture content of stored grain to determine if it needs to be dried. Remember to verify that the moisture content measured by the meter has been adjusted for grain temperature. In addition, remember that moisture measurements of grain at temperatures below about 40 degrees may not be accurate. Verify the accuracy of the measurement by warming the grain sample to room temperature in a sealed plastic bag before measuring the moisture content. Corn needs to be dried to 13 to 14 percent moisture for summer storage to prevent spoilage. Soybeans should be dried to 11 percent, wheat to 13 percent, barley to 12 percent and oil sunflowers to 8 percent. Corn at moisture contents exceeding 21 percent should be dried in a high-temperature dryer because deterioration is rapid at warmer temperatures. For example, the allowable storage time of 22 percent moisture corn is about 190 days at 30 degrees and 60 days at 40 degrees but only 30 days at 50 degrees. Propane prices are still high but have moderated somewhat. The cost of hightemperature drying per point of moisture removed using a moderately efficient dryer can be estimated by multiplying the propane price per gallon by 0.02. For example, the estimated cost per percentage point per bushel of drying with propane at $2.60 per gallon is 5 cents. To remove 8 points of moisture would cost about 40 cents per bushel for propane. Obtain the most energy-efficient drying by operating the dryer at the highest temperature that will not damage the corn. For natural air-drying, assure that the airflow rate the fan supplies is at least 1 cubic foot per minute per bushel (cfm/bu) and the initial corn moisture does not exceed 21 percent.
Spring truck weight restrictions will begin on Friday, March 14
Spring truck weight restrictions on state highways begin March 14 for Minnesota's South, Southeast and Metro frost zones, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT). Winter load increases and overweight permits remain in place for the state's Central, North-Central and North frost zones. MnDOT limits truck weights to prevent damage to roads weakened during the spring thaw. Ending dates for spring load restrictions will be established by monitoring roadway strength as weather conditions change. The South Zone extends south from the southern limit of the Central Zone (US 12 – Hennepin county line) to the Iowa state line and east to the Metro Zone and then a line following and including Interstate 35. This zone includes Highway 19 along the southern border of Scott County. The Southeast Zone extends south from the southern limit of the Metro Zone along, but not including, I-35 to the Iowa state line and east to the Wisconsin state line. This zone includes Highway 19 along the southern border of Dakota County. The Metro Zone (Minneapolis – St. Paul metro area) includes Anoka, Carver, Chisago, Dakota, Hennepin, Ramsey, Scott and Washington counties. This zone does not include Highway 19 along the southern borders of Scott and Dakota counties. Road restriction maps showing the locations of weight-restricted routes and state highways open to maximum 10-ton axle weights are listed at www.dot.state.mn.us/materials. Click on “Seasonal Load Limits,” and then “Spring Load Restrictions” for the most up-to-date information. The information is also available by calling MnDOT’s 24-hour automated message center at 1-800-7236543 in the United States and Canada or by calling 651366-5400.
News & Information
Due to the higher propane price or lack of a high-temperature dryer, producers may want to air-dry wetter corn. Corn at 23 percent moisture requires an airflow rate of at least 1.5 cfm/bu, which is not feasible in a full bin. If a bin is sized to provide an airflow rate of 1 cfm/bu, only fill the bin about three-fourths full to obtain an airflow rate of about 1.5 cfm/bu, which will permit air-drying corn at moisture contents up to 23 percent. For example, fill a bin to no more than 16 feet, rather than 22 feet.

Taunya Todd will share at the Women’s Annual Creekside Garden Party on Saturday, March 22
Speaker, singer and songwriter Taunya Todd will be coming to share at the Women's Annual Creekside Garden Party at 10 a.m. Saturday, March 22. Todd was born and raised in central Iowa and now lives near the Red River Valley of Minnesota with her husband, Steve, and their three kids. Music and Women's Ministry are dear to her heart. Through the tough early years of raising their son, Tyler, and twins, Shane and Kaitlyn, music has soothed her soul and her friends have kept her sane. Todd currently works at Hawley Alliance Church in Creative Administration and Women's Ministry. She is also one of the Worship Crohn's Disease, an experience that turned her life upside down. Through Christ and her “First Responder Friends” she has come through that season with a new look on life and relationships which is reflected in her music and life's ministry.
