Leader to cease on May 29
To Leader subscribers: One of the few guarantees in life is change. Regretfully, it is change that brings this announcement to our faithful Silver Lake Leader readers and advertisers. The Silver Lake Leader will cease independent publication on May 29. The reason is simple. It cannot financially support itself. Beginning with the June 4 issue, the pages of the Silver Lake Leader will be rolled into The McLeod County Chronicle. While not all the details have been worked out, the aim is to keep a distinct Silver Lake flavor to a section in The Chronicle. Alyssa Schauer will continue to be our Silver Lake reporter, but the Leader office in Silver Lake will be closed at the end of May. Schauer will work full time out of The Chronicle’s office in Glencoe. While the Leader will cease publication, the coverage of Silver Lake’s citizens, City Council and civic events will not. We plan to offer you the same type of coverage now available in the Leader, just in a different package. To our faithful advertisers, thank you for your support, and we hope you will continue to support the change. Same for our subscribers. Thank you for your faith in us, and we hope for your continued support. When McLeod Publishing purchased the struggling Silver Lake Leader in December 2010, the purchase agreement guaranteed the newspaper would operate for a year. It went nearly 3-1/2 years. Sadly, that run is coming to an end. Rich Glennie Editor

GSL kids raise $500 for Orth by making, selling bracelets
By Alyssa Schauer Staff Writer ast Saturday at the Tim Orth Basketball Jamboree, a group of Glencoe-Silver Lake elementary students raised over $500 for the Tim Orth Memorial Foundation by simply making and selling rubberband bracelets. Tammy Schermann, fourthgrade teacher at Lakeside Elementary, said a group of her students “spearheaded” the project after reading an article about the typhoon tragedy that hit the Philippines last November. “We were reading an article about the typhoon in the magazine, ‘Time for Kids.’ The article discussed the disaster and funding efforts to help those affected. After
1983 state champs
Thirty years ago, in November 1983, the Silver Lake Lakeites high school football team earned the nine-man state championship trophy. On Saturday, April 5, from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., a reunion to celebrate the anniversary will be held at the Silver Lake Legion. The team was led by Coaches Buz Rumrill and Dan Tschimperle (right). The event includes a program honoring Rumrill and Tschimperle. The public is invited to attend the anniversary event to share stories of the championship season.
reading, I had the kids brainstorm ideas of how they would help people in need, and this group thought of making and selling bracelets, and then decided they wanted to raise money for the Orth recipients,” Schermann said. Students Malayh Metcalf, Brent Lipke, Jake Schrupp, Porter Mikolichek, Spencer Lemke, Miranda Litzau and Majkya Metcalf started making bracelets with the popular “rainbow loom” in November. “They perservered. On Friday afternoons during free time, I let them bring in their loom kits and they made their bracelets. If I would have let them, they would have made them all day, every day,” Schermann laughed. Soon other students joined
their efforts, including Miah Monahan, Teagan Hansch, Cade Herrmann, Kaitlyn Popp and Morgan Chimelewski, and the group sold over $500 in bracelets. Schermann said they raised about $200 before the event and sold the remaining $300 in bracelets at the Jamboree. “We sold about 250 bracelets to kids in our class and came out with $126. We sold around 100 bracelets at Miranda’s mom’s work. When we added that to our $126, we came out with around $200,” the kids said. The group said they stocked up on rubberband bracelets before the Tim Orth event, making all different

30-year reunion set for 1983 state champions
By Alyssa Schauer Staff Writer hirty years ago, in November 1983, the Silver Lake Lakeites high school football team emerged victorious over Norman County West/Climax 2712 in the nine-man state championship at the Metrodome. On Saturday, April 5, from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., Silver Lake alumni Nancy Benz, Sandy (Tschimperle) Posusta and Tony Kadlec are hosting a public reunion to celebrate the anniversary of the state title. All are welcome to attend the event. The evening includes a social hour with cash bar beginning at 5 p.m. and a program from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. honoring the coaches, Buz Rumrill and Dan Tschimperle, and trainer Don Ranzau. The 1983 nine-man state champs ended their season that year with a perfect record, 13-0, and Nancy Benz talked with “star quarterback” Bob Yurek and Kevin Benz about their championship season. “I remember a lot from the games. The pregame was so important. Coach (Dan) Tschimperle would stay with the team to get them prepared for the game. Buz (Rumrill) would take the quarterbacks, Scott Tschimperle and me, and he would talk to us about what we would need to accomplish during the game. He would do this to settle us down and get us focused for the game,” Yurek said. Kevin Benz said he remembered that Coach Rum-

rill had some pretty “vocal and colorful” speeches during the games. “Some of our tougher games, like the one against Brownton, included a great speech. With some colorful language, he told us we had to play better. Buz wasn’t a ‘rah rah’ kind of guy. He was an ‘X and O’ kind of guy. Execute, block and run. He was more of a Mike Ditka kind of coach — more of a fiery personality and a tough guy type of approach. His philosophy was to just get it done,” Kevin Benz said. “The type of coaching style of Mike Ditka fit that time of era. We all had the same background and we were able to get on the same page. It is due to being a farming community and a small town. We had all the same norms and we were raised the same way. You don’t see that in the cities today. In a small town, you know everybody and you know what the kids are like, their parents, their background,” Yurek said. Yurek said the team had difficult games that season, specifically against Winsted, Brownton and Stewart. “They were all the same skill set as us and tough teams. We knew a mistake here or there would turn the game in their favor,” Yurek said. Their undefeated conference record was as follows: Minneapolis Lutheran, 27-8; Hector, 27-6; Grove City, 4214; Stewart, 27-20; Buffalo Lake, 23-0; Lester Prairie, 66-0; Brownton, 29-20; Cosmos, 47-6; Winsted Holy Trinity, 27-20; and Raymond,
40-13. In the playoffs, the Lakeites defeated Starbuck, 31-14, and Hills/Beaver Creek, 53-14. “Buz (Rumrill) and Dan (Tschimperle) taught us that it was all about teamwork. You didn’t need a 50-page play book. You needed to function as a team. You just needed four to five plays and if you execute things together, it will work,” Kevin Benz said. He said the coaches’ philosophy was “simple is better.” The 1983 Silver Lake Lakeites high school football team included: Durwin Jones, Bill Polchow, Ken Wraspir, Jim Hemerick, Jim Blazinski, Bob Yurek, Kevin Benz, DuWayne Ranzau, Larry Stifter, Jeff Mallak, Bruce Stifter, Wade Stritesky, Mark Kosek, Brian Blazinski, Scott Tschimperle, Brad Blazinski, Todd Syvertson, Mike Mickolichek, Todd Brown, Randy Zajicek, Tony Kadlec, Dean Ruzicka, Brad Shamla, Bernie Koktan, Ervin Nowak, Carl Cuhel, Mike Ostlie, Brian Wosmek, Dave Hlavka, Todd Cuhel, Craig Stibal, Paul Stritesky, Brian Webb and Bob Wraspir. The coaches were Buz Rumrill and Dan Tschimperle and managers were Gordie Chmielewski and Randy Hatcher. The public is invited to attend the anniversary celebration to hear team members and the coaches share their stories and remember the championship season.

McLeod County among defendants in lawsuit
By Alyssa Schauer Staff Writer The McLeod County Board heard it is a defendant in an upcoming class-action lawsuit filed by Beverly Snow and many others regarding a driver diversion program for traffic offenders. County Attorney Mike Junge said the court case involves 14 counties and 21 cities and stems from the implementation of a driver diversion program. “In 2010, the sheriff started this diversion program for traffic offenders where they can pay a fee and take a class about driving instead of paying the fine and having the citation go on their record,” Junge said. He said from 2010-2012, the sheriff department collected $11,000 annually. “The allegation is that the program is unlawful and consists of illegal expenditures since sheriffs are not allowed to implement this program,” Junge said. “But county attorneys can, and the ironic thing is that the group is claiming I signed off on this,” Junge said. Commissioner Sheldon Nies said he’s only ever heard positive feedback about the program. “I think it’s a great program, especially for young drivers. I don’t understand it (the lawsuit),” Nies said. “This is law. You don’t have to understand it,” Junge laughed. Nies said he felt the driver diversion program is a “better deterrent” for poor driving than a traffic ticket, and that it’s “humiliating” for drivers to take a driving class over. “That lesson sticks with them over paying a one-time fine,” Nies said. “I think they are missing the boat on this one,” he added. Junge said the lawsuit is filed in Wabasha County District Court, and that the driver diversion program has been suspended since August 2012. Chief Deputy Tim Langenfeld said the majority of the money earned through the program when into the county’s general fund. He said some money was deducted to pay for employees conducting the classes, “but the rest of the money went into the county’s general fund.” Junge said representatives from MCIT (Minnesota Counties Intergovernmental Trust) will represent the county in court. “I guess we’ll wait and see,” Nies said.

The students said it takes about five minutes to make a bracelet, and a bit longer to make the “minions.” “We were really happy to make an impact on someone’s life,” Schrupp said. “It felt really good helping the kids,” Malayh Metcalf said.

Tracing Roots
By Ron Pulkrabek
Favorite topic: favorite foods
It’s become widely known at work that I love food. I know this sounds ridiculous because really, who doesn’t love food? But almost daily, it seems conversation in the office revolves around Grandma’s kolaches and other sweet treats, scrumptious beef commercials (over french fries) at Bump’s, Coborn’s lunch specials, Unhinged! Pizza’s sweet chili chicken pizza, and many other family recipes or restaurant delights. Quite often, Jessica in our production department will ask me, “Are you talking about food again?” I have an uncanny ability to bring it up almost every discussion with my co-workers. They must think I’m starving or something, but I just love food. Every Thursday, we have a “treat day” in the office where management brings in cookies or popcorn or donuts or cupcakes or strudel, and every so often, we are blessed with a box of caramel rolls and raspberry bear claws fresh from The Cake House. The rolls are made of sweet bread, and they are dripping with gooey caramel, filled with cream cheese and topped with pecans. Are you drooling yet? I am. Because of this deep affection for food, I love going to new restaurants and trying new meals, and last Thursday for lunch, I had one of the best sandwiches of my life at Which Wich? in St. Paul. That afternoon, I was wedding dress shopping with my best friend Sarah, who is getting married this August. (Yet another wedding to add to my closet of colorful dresses!) After she found thee dress at The Wedding Shoppe, we were ravenous and she sug-
Departing from old Czech farmstead
Editor’s note: This is a continuation of the Pulkrabeks visit to the family’s old Czech farmstead in 1985. At 5 p.m., our heads swimming with information, we told our hosts we must leave. They insisted we come in for a cup of coffee. We were served sausages, goat cheese, boiled eggs, pickles, mushrooms and chunks of solid, smoked fat pork. Nice white fat! We thought this was to share but, “No,” each person was given a plateful, followed by huge squares of delicious, “raspberry buktha,” ice cream, cookies, watermelon and pivo. Jana, my cousin translator, explained in Czech to Hana that we would get sick if we ate all of this food. Our host, Hana, replied in a very joking way, “Good! Then they will remember us much better!” We had many laughs over that statement! Hana was very bubbly and had a great sense of humor! The parish priest joined us for supper. This was followed by Hana singing and playing on her guitar the Czech National Anthem, “Where is My Home?” Their cousin played the accordion accompanied by Oldrich on his violin, while we all sang, “Sla Nanyka Do Zeli” and “Cervene Vino, Bily Kolache.” We were all laughing and having a hilariously good time! They had gifts for us. A ladies’ white angora rabbit pull-over sweater made from their own rabbits, a highly decorated carved smoking pipe, highly decorated eggs painted by Hana, Czech dolls, a 24-inch high, fluffy white teddy bear, a huge woven basket, an 18-inch high piece of ornately decorated pottery, a quart of strong “Becherovka” liquor, a huge cake and more. We asked, “How are we going to get all this on the plane?” They laughed and laughed, and Hana replied, “That is your problem!” More laughing by all of us! Our meager gifts were an embarrassment to us! Four hours later they followed us to the car. We had more hugging, saying sad goodbyes and shaking hands through the windows of our slow-moving car. Jan, Emily, Oldrich and Hana kept waving until we disappeared around the corner and headed off into the darkness. On the 75-mile home trip, we had to get out of the car several times on a major highway in the dark to find signs pointing to Prague. We arrived in Prague at midnight. What a day! On another visit eight years later, it was more of the same as above. At 9 p.m., Hana insisted we stop to see their firstborn grandchild at the hospital. It was dark, dark, dark, on this November evening. We pulled into the dark, completely empty hospital parking lot, walked to a guard booth with a “babicka” (grandmother) sitting inside in the dark, under a 20-watt bare light bulb, bundled up for the cold. After some discussion she finally gave her approval to enter, although we had to crawl under the locked pipe gate. We walked across the hospital grounds with the moon shining eerie shadows all around us. We knocked on the locked hospital door. Finally a nurse came. More discussions. She told us this visit is highly against hospital policies. We were told to take off our shoes, remain silent and tip-toe down a dim, empty hallway. We were ushered into a darkened stairway, climbed three flights of stairs, and were closed into a 10-by-10-foot linen room and asked to wait quietly. Soon the mother, Libuska, came into the room. Then a nurse brought little baby boy Vitek, who was tightly wrapped like a loaf of bread with only his tiny sleeping face showing. He was a pretty baby! After congratulations, oohs and aahs and hugs, we retreated silently, the way we came in, and out into the dark shadows. We left proud Hana and her son-in-law, the father, waving goodbye to us from under a 40-watt bare yard light bulb as we disappeared into the darkness. We arrive in Prague after midnight.
The Travel Section
By Alyssa Schauer
gested our usual favorites — McDonald’s, Noodles and Company, Arby’s, etc. I was craving a fish fillet from McD’s but chicken alfredo at Noodles also sounded delicious. And who can pass up roast beef sandwiches and curly fries at Arby’s? Really, I was hungry for anything, and Sarah said she was going to take me to one of her new favorites, Which Wich?, a sandwich place much like Subway, where you can customize your very own sub. But instead of telling the sandwich artists what you would like, you fill out a sort of “form” that contains check boxes and turn it into them. This “form” is a kind of menu printed on brown paper bags, which are categorized by turkey, chicken, beef, seafood, and meatless choices. After you select what you’re craving, you can then choose which bread, cheese, spreads and veggies you would like by checking the boxes with a red Sharpie marker. The choices are endless. You can build your sandwich with flatbread, wheat bread, white bread, no bread. Then you can decided if you want American cheese, Cheddar cheese, Pepper Jack cheese, all of them or none of them before deciding on a choice of spread, which includes mayo, light mayo, mustard, pesto, horseradish, etc. And then come the veggies. You name it, they’ve got it. You can even choose how you like your onions: carmelized, red, white, crispy. Excitedly, I checked nearly every box of everything I love, and then scribbled them out because I couldn’t decide what exactly I wanted. I made a mess of my paper bag, and eventually grabbed a new one and started over. Do you think I was about to turn in a sandwich consisting of turkey, crispy onions, mustard, mayo, spinach, lettuce, cucumbers, green peppers, tomatoes, mushrooms, dried cranberries, candied walnuts, carmelized onions and pickles? No. I thought more closely about what would taste great together, and my final creation was a turkey sub on wheat bread with light mayo, spinach, lettuce, dried cranberries, red onions, and candied walnuts. Seriously though, dried cranberries and candied walnuts. The stuff of life. I haven’t even told my coworkers about this sandwich place yet, so what do you think our conversation will be today?

75 YEARS AGO, APRIL 8, 1939 — The Village Council adopted a new ordinance for parking rules to promote safety on Silver Lake’s Main Street, also known as Highway No. 7, from the west end of the village limits to the east-end village limits, and on West Avenue and Lake Avenue, both running south of Main Street.

Terlinden defends process for consideration of building code
By Alyssa Schauer Staff Writer At the regular McLeod County Board meeting Tuesday morning, Commissioner Kermit Terlinden addressed a letter to the editor written about the Board “pushing” to adopt the Minnesota State Building Code (SBC) and reiterated that the Board is not trying to “push anything.” In the March 26 edition of The McLeod County Chronicle, Jim Bobier of Acoma Township had a letter to the editor voicing concerns that the Board is “racing ahead” with a workshop limited to a select few. Terlinden said the entire process goes along in conjunction with state statute. “We can’t run this under the radar. We’re not trying to railroad anything,” he said. He said the Board is conducting the workshop as part of the process of discussing adopting the code. “We will have a public meeting about it, but this is where we’re at in the process right now,” he stressed about the workshop. Commissioner Sheldon Nies agreed. “If we don’t follow suit and go through with the process of discussion, we aren’t doing our due diligence as commissioners,” he said. “That’s the beauty of freedom of speech,” County Attorney Mike Junge commented. Terlinden said the workshop is meant to “hash over” all the details and that a public meeting will “definitely” be set for anyone who has concerns. In other matters, the Board: • Approved a lease agreement with Glencoe Co-op Association for propane service at the new highway shop. Highway Engineer John Brunkhorst said the agreement allows the highway department use of a 1,000-gallon tank provided the department buys propane exclusively from the Co-op. • Purchased a 1981 Blanchet snow blower from the city of Hutchinson for a net county cost of $6,000. The purchase agreement includes a trade of a 1983 Hyster pneumatic roller. Funding is coming from the 2014 highway budget. “The trade is mutually beneficial to both of us. The state contract price for a comparable new snow blower is about $200,000,” Brunkhorst said. • Approved agreement with Winsted Township for the replacement of bridge L5929. Brunkhorst said this is a standard agreement for townships wanting to proceed with bridge replacement projects, which are typically funded with town bridge and state bridge bonds and local township funding. • Adopted a resolution for a temporary loan of $109,900 from the general revenue fund to the ditch fund to cover negative county and joint ditch fund balances. • Approved a resolution from the enhancement grant program for $10,000 to be used for unbudgeted outreach in the veteran services department. • Nominated Otto Templin to the Housing and Redevelopment Authority, replacing James Mills. • Set “Student Government Day” for Tuesday, May 6. The agenda includes a presentation on the consequences of heroin use; presenters include parents who lost children to heroin overdose.

Young but experienced
By Josh Randt Sports Editor Coming off a 5-10 season from last year, a young Glencoe-Silver Lake softball team gained some experience, and now hopes to compete more within the Wright County Conference. The only face missing from last year is Cortney Lemke, who the Panthers will miss on the mound. Lemke earned all-conference recognition, but was forced primarily into pitching duties with an inexperienced squad. While his girls are still green, Head Coach Steve Davis likes the look of his team this year. “We have a pretty strong, deep team,” Davis said. “We’re deeper than the past. We’ve actually got some competition in spots.” Davis even looks to have an actual pitching rotation on his hands, instead of leaning on one horse, like Lemke, last year. “We’ve got three very good pitchers who have added more velocity,” Davis said of Moriah Maunu (9), Maddy Kalenberg (10) and Becca Green (11). “Now we’ve got options, instead of one girl.” Steph Klockmann also earned all-conference last year as a junior, and will be counted on heavily in her senior season. “She’s our best player. She can play any position,” Davis said. “Right now, she’s kind of penciled into first (base), but she can play anywhere. We’ll see how the season goes, and she’ll fill in the gaps.” Amanda Meyer is the only other senior on the roster. Davis said she could see time at a number of spots, though she’s currently vying for a position in the field. Juniors Josie Schmitt and Rachel Rusten earned honorable mention honors last season, with Schmitt covering second and Rusten patrolling the grass in right field. What really has the coach excited is his batting order. “If you look at the lineup, we’re pretty good one-to-nine,” said Davis. “These nine will put it in play and give us a chance to win. We’ve got a good competitive batSilver Lake Leader photo by Josh Randt

Piper Davis will most likely bat cleanup, though Becca Green could see time there as well. “It kind of depends on who’s starting,” said Coach Davis. The West Division of the Wright County Conference is where the Panthers hope to challenge. “We hope to compete on our side of the conference, or win it,” Coach Davis said. “Our skills are good enough. I would be disappointed if we’re not toward the top (of the division). And for sections, I think it’s time that we win a section game and get to Mankato. We’re good enough for that.” The first game of the season is scheduled for Friday, April 4, versus NorwoodYoung America. Though, weather could play a factor as the fields are still quite soggy.

Orth event goes big
By Josh Randt Sports Editor The 16th-annual Tim Orth Foundation Basketball Jamboree kept audiences entertained this past weekend, while introducing some local youths with costly medical needs to the area. Patrons packed the GlencoeSilver Lake gymnasium with an abundance of events and activities scheduled and plenty of silent auction items to mull over. This year’s recipients were honored in between boys’ and girls’ basketball games made up of area all-stars. Each recipient and their family were recognized by the audience, and escorted by a Crown College basketball player as they made their way to half court. Emotions ran high during the powerful ceremony that left many applauding and cheering the families who stood before them. The basketball games were interrupted frequently, but with good reason, as many organizations, groups and clubs displayed entertaining talents or put on events for onlookers, including a Buffalo Wild Wings eating contest. Claiming the girls’ game 5546 was the Red team, which was led by Hutchinson’s Taylor Jurgenson, who finished with 18 points. Miranda Schulz (Waconia) also chipped in 16 of her own while Madison Christie (Hutch) scored seven. The Black team’s Andi Gayner (Dassel-Cokato) scored 13, while her Charger teammate Brenna Olsen (DC) finished with 10. While the Black team lost, Megan Eckberg brought home a scholarship from the girls’ shootout, making five threepointers. For the boys, the Black team edged the Red team 80-77 in a back-and-forth battle. Leading the way for the victors was Austin Smith (Howard Lake-Waverly-Winsted) with 18. His Laker teammate Alex Smith (HLWW) finished with 11, while Eric Madsen (Litchfield) and Cole Petersen (Glencoe-Silver Lake) each finished with 10 a piece. Waconia’s Tommy Gove led Red scorers with 15, while Nick Machemehl (Lester Prairie/Holy Trinity) dropped 14. Hunter Hulley (WatertownMayer) and Alex Heigl (LPHT) each scored 10 as well for the Red in a losing effort. Luke Sandquist (WM) won the slam dunk competition in a dunk off, earning himself a scholarship. Jayden Juergensen (Hutch) claimed the three-point challenge for the boys and also walked away with a scholarship. The Panther gymnasium and commons area was filled to the brim, as this year’s Orth recipient list swelled to 12. “We had to do it right this year,” Don Tangen said, “because there were so many recipients who needed help.” Donations for the Tim Orth Memorial Foundation are still being accepted, and can be mailed to Tangen at P.O. Box 33, 340 Edgewood Drive, Glencoe, MN 55336.

Solid on the track, searching in the field
By Josh Randt Sports Editor With a number of seniors departing after last year’s track season, Head Coaches Josh Metcalf and Robb DeCorsey are now trying to filter in replacements in numerous spots. At last year’s state track meet, Glencoe-Silver Lake had three boys medal in different events, as well as a girls’ 4x200-meter relay team, which failed to make it to the final round. Total, GSL competed in six different events at last year’s state meet. This year’s team only boasts 13 seniors, but they will be counted on for plenty of points. Both Metcalf and DeCorsey got a chance to see their teams in action as indoor meets at St. John’s and St. Thomas Universities afforded coaches and athletes a welcome change from running in hallways. The first meet of the season is scheduled for April 8 at Mankato West. With a new track surface intact, GSL will host three meets: a conference meet on April 28, followed by an invitational the next day. The final home meet is May 22 for the subsection championship. to figure out what our strongest lineup is.”
The girls may not have lost as many pieces, but the ones they did lose will be tough to replace as well. Though DeCorsey’s lost some valuable assets, he still has two senior leaders in Kelly Arnold and Tori Burr. Burr is also hoping to turn success from the fall into points for the track team, as she finished 21st at the state cross country meet this past fall. She’ll be competing in the one and two mile. “She’s always been a solid at the one and two (mile),” DeCorsey said of Burr. “She’s definitely the leader of the distance bunch. They follow her lead. I’d love to see her breakthrough and get to state this year.” Arnold returns after a junior season where she made it to state on the 4x2 relay team, and as an individual in the 200-meter dash. “I really think she can get back to state in both events,” DeCorsey said of Arnold. “Kelly is the leader of the other half of the team. She spent a lot of time in the weight room during the off season, and I want that to pay off for her.” Like the boys, DeCorsey will need some help in the field. Despite that, the coach said his team should have their gaze upon subsections. “It would be nice to win the subsection again, and I think there’s a chance of that,” said DeCorsey. “But we need to find some people in the field events.”

The coach said the goal for this year’s boys’ team is a solid finish in the conference and section. “We’ve been very competitive year in and out in the Wright County Conference,” Metcalf said. “Being the last year where it’ll be a full conference meet, it would be a nice chance to be in the top three again ... Our real focus is essentially true team, conference, subsections, section and state. Those are the only five that really matter. Outside of that, at the other meets we’ll be trying
“We have a lot of holes to fill,” Metcalf said of the boys. “Especially with (Trent) Draeger gone, who we could count on scoring in three jumping events.

Kitchen Delights & Other Things
Peanut Butter and Jelly Bars Ingredients: 2 sticks unsalted butter, room temperature 1-1/2 cups sugar 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract 2 extra-large eggs, at room temperature 2 cups creamy peanut butter 3 cups all-purpose flour 1 teaspoon baking powder 1-1/2 teaspoons kosher salt 1-1/2 cups raspberry jam or other jam 2/3 cup salted peanuts, coarsely chopped Directions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9x13inch cake pan. Line with parchment paper, then grease and flour the pan. In a bowl, cream together the butter and the sugar on medium speed until light yellow, about 2 minutes. On low speed, add the vanilla, eggs, and peanut butter and mix until all ingredients are combined. In a small bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder and salt. With the mixer on low speed, slowly add the flour mixture to the peanut butter mixture. Mix until just combined. Spread 2/3 of the dough into the prepared cake pan and spread over the bottom with a knife or offset spatula. Spread the jam evenly over the dough. Drop small globs of remaining dough evenly over the jam. Don’t worry if jam isn’t covered — it will spread in the oven. Sprinkle with chopped peanuts and bake for 45 minutes, until golden brown. Cool and cut into squares. Salted Peanut Chews Ingredients: Base: 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour 2/3 cup light brown sugar 1/2 teaspoon baking powder 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/4 teaspoon baking soda 1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 2 egg yolks 3 cups miniature marshmallows Topping: 2/3 cup light corn syrup 1/4 cup unsalted butter 2 teaspoons vanilla extract 1 bag peanut butter chips 2 cups crisp rice cereal 2 cups salted peanuts Directions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, beat all the base ingredients except the marshmallows with an electric mixer on low speed until crumbly. Press the mixture firmly in the bottom of an ungreased 9x13-inch pan. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until light golden brown. Immediately sprinkle marshmallows over the base. Bake 1 to 2 minutes longer or until marshmallows just begin to puff. Cool while preparing topping. In a 3-quart saucepan, mix all topping ingredients except cereal and peanuts. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, just until the chips are melted and mixture is smooth. Remove from heat. Stir in the cereal and peanuts. Immediately spoon the warm topping over marshmallows; spread to cover. Refrigerate until firm, about 45 minutes. Lemon Sparkle Cupcakes Ingredients: 2/3 cup shortening 1 cup sugar 3 eggs 1-2/3 cups all-purpose flour 2-1/2 teaspoons baking powder 1/2 teaspoon salt 2/3 cups milk 1 tablespoon grated lemon peel Topping: 1/4 cup sugar 1 tablespoon grated lemon peel 1/8 ground nutmeg Directions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, cream shortening and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt; add to creamed mixture alternately with milk, beating well after each addition. Stir in lemon peel. Fill paper-lined muffin cups two-thirds full. Combine topping ingredients; sprinkle a rounded 1/2 teaspoonful over each cupcake. Bake 20 to 24 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes before removing pans to wire racks to cool completely.

Rich Valley Township
Weather Corner
By Jake Yurek
Sometimes, you just have to marvel at the power of Mother Nature! As I write this, areas in North Dakota and northwestern Minnesota could see up to 20 inches of snow with 50 mph winds, while at the same time there’s just been a couple reports of tornadoes in western Minnesota. This is fairly rare, but when these very intense spring storms tap into the right ingredients, we can see all types of weather in a generally small geographical area. The weird part is the area that saw the tornadoes was within a few miles of a blizzard warning. Ok, I’m done talking about the past, moving onto the future. We’ll end the week cooler than the amazing weather we had over the weekend, with yet another storm to worry about. Highs to end the week will be stuck in the 30s and 40s and a very tricky storm will enter the picture late Thursday. As I write this, I’d rather not venture a guess at what might happen but here’s my best guess. Late Thursday into Friday, a storm will move into the upper Midwest. It’s looking like this one will take a track more to the south than our early week one, so this means we’ll have to worry more about snow. As the storm approaches it should be warm enough to be all rain but as time goes by enough cold air should filter in to change things to snow. When and where this will happen is up for grabs with our area being right on the line of rain/snow. Whoever gets more snow could see 8-plus inches with perhaps a halfinch of rain only 50-100 miles away. The cutoff may be very sharp, so it’s hard to guess this far out what to expect. In other words, please pay close attention to more up-todate forecasts as a couple models are hinting that it might even mostly miss us. Things clear out for the weekend with a quick warm-up to possibly 50 by Sunday (I’m hoping this just isn’t me being optimistic). Have a great first week of April, all; I’ll definitely take the April showers over April snow. Ma dobry weekendem Mit dobry vikend
