The Arlington City Coun-
cil, during its recent regular
meeting, unanimously ap-
proved a motion to increase
the electric rates by approxi-
mately six percent in conjuc-
tion with the 2014 Electrical
Improvement Project which
will cost around $540,000.
City Council members
James Jaszewski, Jennifer
Nuesse, Curt Reetz, Jason
Ruehling and Galen Wills all
voted in favor of the motion.
The move, according to
Shannon Sweeney from
David Drown Associates,
equates to an increase of
$5.22 per month for a typical
residential customer who
presently pays $87.03 per
month and an increase of
$18.97 per month for a typi-
cal business customer who
presently pays $326.16 per
month.
Customers will see the
change in their electric bill
later this month, according to
City Administrator Liza Don-
abauer.
According to Sweeney, the
rate increase will enable the
City of Arlington to make the
debt service payments and
will generate some cash (debt
coverage) which should accu-
mulate in the electric utility
and be available for future
capital projects.
Revenue Bonds
The City Council, in a re-
lated matter, unanimously
adopted a resolution to au-
thorize the issuance, award-
ing the sale, prescribing the
form and details, and provid-
ing for the payment in regard
to the 2014 Electrical Im-
provement Project.
In another related move,
the City Council unanimously
approved a motion to approve
the bond purchase agreement.
The cost for the bonds will
be $690,000 over 15 years.
Project
The 2014 Electrical Im-
provement Project includes
four bid items.
Bid item number one will
include a new approximately
5,260-foot feeder line from
the new electrical substation
to the downtown switch
building. This is the core of
the project.
Bid item number two will
include a new approximately
1,000-foot tie line between
the new substation east feeder
and the old south feeder. This
item is important to bypass
the old substation. It is not
critical, but does weaken the
reliability in the future if it is
not completed.
Bid item number three will
include a new approximately
680-foot Prairie Line Trail
underground conversion of
the existing overhead line. It
is being required by Sibley
County for improvement and
minimal reliability.
Bid item number four will
include electrical line and
substation materials.

The Sibley East Task
Force, which was assem-
bled to evaluate and make
recommendations to the
School Board on the district
facilities, continues to work
hard and find creative solu-
tions, according to Superin-
tendent Jim Amsden.
The Task Force, which
has studied anywhere be-
tween 15 and 18 different
options over the past sever-
al months, has narrowed its
list down to three options.
The group, in turn, has fo-
cused on the first two op-
tions.
The first option is to con-
struct a new PreK-5 or
PreK-6 building in Gaylord
and a new Grade 6-12 or 7-
12 building in Arlington.
The estimated cost for this
option is $48 million.
The second option is to
construct a new PreK-5 or
PreK-6 building on school
property in Gaylord and
renovate the existing build-
ing in Arlington into a
Grade 6-12 or 7-12 school.
The estimated cost for this
option is $42 million.
Under a conceptual
drawing for the second op-
tion, a new three-station
gymnasium would be
added onto the north end of
the building in Arlington.
The current big gymnasium
would be renovated into an
auditorium. In addition, the
1936 portion of the build-
ing would be demolished
and replaced with a com-
mons area, classrooms and
kitchen.
A third option is to reno-
vate the existing buildings
in Arlington and Gaylord.
The estimated cost for this
option is anywhere from
$37.5 to $39 million.
The discussion is still
preliminary and no final de-
cisions have been made to
date. In addition, the Task
Force still has the ability to
revisit the other options.
The Task Force, which
consistently has 20 to 25
citizens in attendance at
every meeting, began to
meet back in February.
The group has studied a
variety of topics including
past history, post referen-
dum survey, demographics,
appropriate classroom size,
enrollment, grade align-
ment and commuters.
In an effort to find a cre-
ative solution and viable
option in regard to facili-
ties, the Task Force has
tried hard to take into ac-
count the feedback from the
community survey. For ex-
ample, a majority of people
want a school building in
their community. In addi-
tion, a majority of people
had issues with the land ac-
quisition costs for the pro-
posed PreK-12 school from
a few years ago.
The Task Force has also
emphasized that the final
option must meet the edu-
cational needs of students
in the school district in the
most financially feasible
way as possible.
In addition, the Task
Force also stressed that the
final option must be a plan
that it believes the voters
would find acceptable.
Amsden said there is no
timeline for the Task Force.
The group will continue to
narrow down its list to a
final option and then talk
specifics.
The Task Force will hold
its next meeting in Arling-
ton on Tuesday night, May
20.

The Green Isle City Coun-
cil, during its regular meeting
on Tuesday night, May 13,
addressed the water leakage
issue in Lions Park.
The City Council voted 5-0
and approved a motion to ac-
cept a $2,640 quotation from
Henning’s Excavating, New
Germany, to repair a faulty
shut off valve at the curb stop
and replace 125 feet of water
line.
Mayor Dale ZumBerge and
City Council members Todd
Burg, Shawn Harms, Brian
Oelfke and Mark Wentzlaff
all voted in favor of the mo-
tion.
In conjunction with the
motion, the agreement is void
if the work is not completed
by Friday, May 23.
In other news, the City
Council held discussion on
possible streets to be sealed
this summer.
The City Council has bud-
geted $50,000 for this proj-
ect. This is $10,000 more
than last year.
Harms and Wentzlaff, who
are members of the Street
Committee, will tour the
community and make a rec-
ommendation on which
streets are in the most need of
chip sealing this summer.
In other business, City At-
torney Ross Arneson present-
ed an update on discussions
and negotiations with Verizon
officials.
According to Arneson, Ver-
izon would like to have space
held on the water tower for
$300 per year.
Arneson said an ending
date on the agreement like
one year might encourage
Verizon to place equipment
on the water tower sooner
rather than later.
The City Council would
like to see Verizon place a
cell phone antenna on the
water tower. This would im-
prove cell phone coverage in
the community.
Arneson suggested a rental
fee of $900 per month for
space on the water tower for
a cell phone antenna.
Burg suggested that the
city could take less money
per month if that would en-
courage Verizon to place a
cell phone antenna on the
water tower sooner rather
than later.
Arneson will continue to
negotiate with Verizon offi-
cials and report back to the
City Council.

One reason why the Sibley
Wind Project will be delayed
is because bats are being put
on the endangered species list
for Sibley County, it was an-
nounced at the Board of
Commissioners meeting on
Tuesday, May 13.
The board approved an
amendment to the road use
agreement in regard to the
letter of credit for WESCO
Wind and the Sibley Wind
Project.
An agreement was worked
out late last year relative to
the cash deposit on the road
agreement which reduced the
required letter of credit from
$300,000 to $25,000 until
May 15. At that time the let-
ter of credit would be in-
creased to a total of
$500,000.
Due to construction delays,
WESCO Wind requested that
the increase be changed to 15
days prior to construction,
which is uncertain.
Construction was slowed
because of the extended win-
ter and wet conditions, plus
the fact that WESCO Wind
has commissioned the devel-
opment and implementation
of a comprehensive eagle sur-
vey and bird and bat conser-
vation strategy within the
project area to meet new in-
dustry requirements.
Despite not knowing when
the bat and bird study would
be completed, Sibley County

A proposed new Ag Serv-
ice Center for United Farmers
Cooperative (UFC) in Ham-
burg was granted a condition-
al use permit by the Sibley
County Board on Tuesday,
May 13.
The Planning and Zoning
Board approved the project
that is adjacent to Washington
Lake Township after taking a
site tour May 2.
The CUP application was
submitted a month earlier. An
information packet was sent
to landowners and a public
hearing was in Gaylord on
Monday, April 21.
The first phase of the proj-
ect is to add storage for LP
and to help eliminate the
challenges that UFC has
faced with short supplies and
high prices this past year. If
all three phases of this project
would be completed, the total
investment cost would be es-
timated at $6.5 million.
Phase I is to be completed
this fall, involving two
30,000 gallon LP (Propane)
storage tanks, one 30,000 gal-
lon NH3 (Anhydrous Ammo-
nia) tank and one 100’ scale.
The goal of Phase 1 is to in-
crease UFC’s LP storage by
60,000 gallons.
A letter to residents near
the project said, “This past
winter it was extremely diffi-
cult to get LP. We want to sta-
bilize the market with better
supply options.”
A feed/seed warehouse is
proposed in Phase II for the
summer of 2015 that would
be a complete seed treatment
facility, service shop and
equipment display area.
Phase III is a state of the art
dry fertilizer plant along the
rail line, estimated for 2017.
Permit for UFC Ag Service Center
is approved by county at meeting

Car Show & Cancer Cruise will

The Sibley County Board
of Commissioners approved
several employment related
items at the meeting on Tues-
day, May 13.
The biggest is approval of
a proposal from Bjorklund
Compensation Consulting to
conduct a classification and
compensation study for
$27,900.
Vote on the proposal was
delayed from last fall because
the Human Resource Director
had retired and the process of
hiring a replacement was in
the works.
County Administrator Matt
Jaunich asked the board to
decide on the issue one way
or another. It is his recom-
mendation to do the study. He
added that nothing has been
done in this area for 15 years.
The study would establish
job description format and
methodology, establish and
perform a job evaluation sys-
tem, do a market comparabil-
ity study, design a perform-
ance review tool and provide
training for the new or re-
vised system.
County Commissioner Bill
Pinske said the timing is such
that there is no way any out-
come can be implemented in
the 2015 county budget. He
added employees should be

2016.
Another action involved
the new Human Services Di-
rector Kim Moore who re-
ceived a satisfactory six-
month employment review as
the probationary period ends.
The resignation of Sheriff
Investigator Shaun Pomplun
was accepted, as was the pro-
motional transfer of Lori Ja-

Former Minneapolis
police officer receives
a 30-month sentence
Our View: Light sentence seems
like a slap on the wrist
Letters To The Editor
Former Minneapolis police officer Bradley Schnickel, 33,
won the lottery in a packed Anoka County courtroom on Mon-
day, May 12. Schnickel, who used the Internet to lure adoles-
cent girls into sexual encounters, was sentenced to only 30
months in prison. He had previously pleaded guilty to three
counts of criminal or attempted criminal sexual conduct and
two counts of electronic solicitation of a minor between 2010
and 2013. Prosecutors had sought a 12-year prison sentence.
With credit for 197 days already served and good behavior,
his remaining time in prison could be reduced to less than 14
months. That is less than a month for each of the 18 known vic-
tims, according to authorities.
Many people in the courtroom, including some victims and
their families, were understandably stunned when Judge James
A. Cunningham sentenced Schnickel to serve five concurrent
30-month sentences and a lifetime of conditional release.
It is difficult to understand how a judge can announce such a
light sentence for such a horrific crime. The punishment does
not fit the crime.
The judge, however, was apparently convinced that Schnick-
el, who has been in counseling for more than a year, has
demonstrated that he is amenable to treatment.
That is also difficult to comprehend. Two months after he was
arrested in Anoka County, Schnickel was charged with sending
nude photos of himself to two teenage girls. He pleaded guilty
to that charge in Hennepin County and was sentenced to one
year in the workhouse.
Many people claim the United States has the greatest judicial
system in the world. That may be true, but it is far from perfect.
This case is a prime example of how the system does fail at
times.

A college student needed a small,
two-hour course to fill out his sched-
ule. The only one that fit in was a
course in wildlife zoology. After just
one week, the professor gave the
class a test. He passed out a sheet of
paper divided into squares. In each
square were eight carefully drawn
picture of some bird legs. No bodies,
no feet - just legs. Then he asked the
students to identify the birds from
their legs.
The student sat and stared at the
test and got more and more angry.
Finally, he stomped up to the front
of the classroom and threw the test
on the teacher’s desk.
“This is the worst test I’ve ever
taken!” he declared.
The teacher looked up. “Young
man, you have just flunked this test.
What is your name?”
The student pulled up his pants
to show the professor his legs.
“You tell me!”

The key to success is setting
aside eight hours a day for work
and eight hours for sleep and
making sure they’re not the same
hours.

After a worker drowned in a vat of

A young girl came home from a
date looking sad. She told her moth-

“Then why are you so sad?” her
mother asked.
“Because he also mentioned he
was an atheist,” the girl replied. “He
doesn’t believe in hell.”
Her mother replied, “Marry
him anyway. Between the two of
us, we’ll show him how wrong he
is.”

The second boys says, “That’s
nothing. My dad scribbles a few
words on a piece of paper and calls
it a prescription, and they give him
$100.”
The third boys says, “I got you
both beat. My dad scribbles a few
words on a piece of paper and
calls it a sermon. It takes eight
people to collect all the money!”

To The Editor,
Sibley County Adult Mental
Health Local Advisory Council is
working to promote awareness and
understanding of mental illness.
May is Mental Health Month and
this year’s theme calls attention to
the importance of mental health and
its relation to our physical health
and wellness.
We are encouraging everyone to
learn how to protect our mental
health and how to get help when
needed. Mental Health America’s
website, (http://www. mental-
healthamerica.net/may) provides
helpful suggestions to improve our
mental health. These suggestions
focus on: alcohol use and abuse,
building social supports, dietary
supplements, healthy diet, getting
help, coping with stress, and the im-
portance of rest, relaxation and exer-
cise.
Nearly one in five American
adults will experience a diagnosable
mental health disorder in a given
year. Nearly half will experience a
mental health disorder in their life-
time, while approximately 70% of
Americans experience physical
symptoms of stress. Stress has a
huge impact on our lives and can
make day to day life difficult. Re-
search shows that people who feel
depressed or chronically stressed
have a greater risk of physical ill-
nesses, including high blood pres-
sure, heart disease, diabetes and
obesity.
A healthy lifestyle can help to pre-
vent the onset or worsening of de-
pression, anxiety and other mental
health conditions, and aid in their re-
covery. Just as we have learned
there are things we can do to reduce
our risk of heart disease and chronic
illnesses, we can learn to protect and
improve our mental health.
If you or someone you know is
struggling with stress, depression or
other mental illness, you can talk
with your primary care provider or a
mental health counselor for addi-
tional help. Sibley County Adult
Mental Health Local Advisory
Council, NAMI and other mental
health organizations are trying to ed-
ucate others on what we can do to
protect and improve our mental
health. Please visit the above web-
site for more information.

May is Mental Health Month
To The Editor,
Here’s an update about the RS
Fiber/Fiber to the Home (FTTH)
project. Supposedly April 30 was an
important deadline.  For three years
the FTTH Joint Powers Board has
not met a single important deadline.
Why?  Because this project does not
have the broad public support and
yet a few people want to keep
spending our money until they wear
us out.  All right, I vented.  Here are
the facts.
(Fact) Pledge cards are under 25
percent: Did you return your FTTH
pledge card?  Breathe easy, you are
in the majority. Unofficial pledge
card returns range from 12 to 29
percent depending on the township
and city. This anemic return rate is
after two expensive mailings and
numerous newspaper letters plead-
ing you to return your pledge card
and many public information meet-
ings to assure you that you are just
confused by project opponents. Yet,
now whenever pledge cards comes
up, FTTH representatives talk about
pledge card returns from two to
three years ago which purportedly
was 50 percent.  Any reference to
the current pledge card percentage is
answered with, “We don’t know
what that is yet.”  Hmmm.  There
must be a lot of confusion and a lot
of opponents. 
(Fact)  General obligation bonds:
The FTTH project, according to
their documentation, needs General
Obligation (G.O.) bonds as one of
the funding sources.  By the way, all
the other funds cited in their materi-
al are loans and not grants or free
money and these loans have to be
repaid too. Anyway, G.O. bonds re-
quire a public vote by state law. As
there is no vote planned, I asked my
Winthrop City Council why no pub-
lic vote when Minnesota statutes
clearly state one is required.  Their
answer:  because these are Tax
Abatement General Obligation
bonds and they do not require a pub-
lic vote.  Technically this is true.
However, wouldn’t elected officials
want the public’s support before
burdening every taxpayer with the
largest G.O. bond offering in Sibley
County history?
(Fact)  Lousy business model: For
three years we have heard how this
is a great business model.  And for
three years this project flounders.
To the Gaylord banker and invest-
ment advisor who now promotes
this scheme for the FTTH board
here is my suggestion:  If this proj-
ect is so good then go get private in-
vestors and prove it.
(Fact)  Not 100 Percent Want
This: Presently two cities and four
townships have kept their con-
stituents from getting entangled with
this convoluted nightmare.  The
FTTH answer to them, “We’ll go
around you then!”  Umm, sure.  I
don’t think FTTH is going to add to
the cost of the project by building
around a whole city or township.
When my Winthrop City Council
learned that four townships “just
said no” one city council member
said something to the effect of,
“Four townships voted to stay out?
Well, that’s a good thing because it’s
more expensive to do a build-out in
the rural areas so our project cost
will go down.”  For three years we
have been told we need to do FTTH
because the rural area does not have
high-speed internet . . . but now in
2014 it’s a good thing if rural town-
ships vote out of the project.  You
can’t make this stuff up.
(Fact) Collapse Or Success You
Lose:  We have been told that this is
now a co-op so it is much better
model than three years ago. Please
remember this is the only co-op in
America requiring taxpayers to
guarantee the bonds and loans 100
percent. What you may not know is
if FTTH is successful dividend
checks may be paid out.  Please
know you and I do not get those de-
spite giving our personal guarantees
on 100 percent of the bonds and
loans.  Profit-sharing is only for the
subscribers. You and I get to write
no-profit-sharing checks to pay for
the bonds and loans when this proj-
ect goes down as it assuredly will. 
My friends, why am I so opposed
to FTTH?  Many reasons actually.
One is that government should not
go into private business against hon-
orable tax paying companies.  An-
other is it is dangerous precedent to
do bonding and create legislation
based on pledge cards. 
However, my overarching reason
for fighting this every day is my
neighbor, a social security widow on
fixed income who uses Trailblazer
to get around.  Her budget now in-
cludes food, insurance, utilities, doc-
toring, and a small church offering.
This treasure of a person should not
have to add a FTTH repayment plan
to her budget.

Louis Henry Kill, This is
my “hello” and my
“farewell”. Since I have
elected not to have a tradi-
t i o n a l
f uner al
service,
I want
this to
be more
than a
u s u a l
o b i t u -
ary. It is
m y
farewell
to all
my rel-
a t i v e s
and my friends and hope they
will miss me as much as I
have enjoyed having them
along side of me on my learn-
ing experience on this earth.
My passing occurred on May
7 at the age of 82, at Duran-
go, Colo. Interment was at
Greenwood Cemetery, Du-
rango, Colo., at 11 a.m. Sat-
urday, May 10.
I’ve learned a lot and en-
joyed many wonderful expe-
riences, but now it is time for
me to make the transition. I
love all of you.
I inhaled my first breath on
June 1, 1931 and became the
sixth child and second son of
my father, Louis Kill and my
mother, Loretta Welch Kill..
What a journey this has
been! Our family eventually
became a clan of nine chil-
dren and my parents. Preced-
ing me in this transition were
four of my siblings, my sis-
ters Margaret and Barbara,
and my brothers, Val and
Larry. I’m leaving behind
four sisters, Betty Groetsch of
Huntington Beach, Calif.;
Ann Leaf of Waconia,; Mary
Nyberg of Minnetonka; and
Lori Hasbrouck of St. Cloud.
I was born at Arlington.
Graduated from high school
there, spent four years in the
air force, including a tour of
duty in Japan during the Ko-
rean War. I then attended the
Graphic Arts Institute in Min-
neapolis.
I married Beverly Ann
Benson on Aug. 9, 1958, and
this was the beginning of a
union lasting 45 years. She
departed from this earth Feb.
10, 2004, leaving behind her
family and many dear friends.
Our first home was at Arling-
ton where I was employed at
the Kill family weekly news-
paper, the Arlington Enter-
prise. Later I became a part-
ner and editor and co-pub-
lisher with brother, Val. The
Kill family then moved to
Glencoe where they were en-
gaged in the printing and of-
fice supply business. Seven
years later they ventured back
into the weekly newspaper
business when they pur-
chased the Kittson County
Enterprise at Hallock. Then it
was a move to Durango,
Colo., in 1978. Since 1981
the entire family, at one time
or another has been engaged
in the management or mainte-
nance of the family owned
business, Island Cove Park, a
mobile home and RV com-
munity and apartments at Du-
rango, Colo.
Our first child was Barbara
Ellen, born in 1961 at Arling-
ton. She now lives at Olathe,
Colo, with her husband, Luke
Kaylor, and sons, Cody and
Benjamin.
Our first son, Cormac
Louis, was born at Glencoe in
1965. He married Karen
Myers and they live in La
Mesa, Calif., with their
daughter, Jaye Marie.
Our second son, Bradley
John, was born at Glencoe in
1966. He lives in Durango,
Colo, and is involved in man-
agement of the Kill family
business.
Throughout my life I have
enjoyed many hobbies, bowl-
ing, hunting and fishing, but
the one that stayed with me to
this end was golf. That game
is quickly diminishing, so this
will be the last of many hun-
dreds of obituaries these now
gnarling fingers have had the
privilege of composing.
It’s now time to close and
say farewell again. I’m sure
we’ll all meet again --- I just
don’t know where or just
don’t know when. My
farewell is this plagiarized
toast to you all. “May you
live as long as you like, and
have all you like as long as
you live.”
Louis H. Kill, 82, Durango, Colo.

Wilma Rezner, age 93, of
Arlington, passed away at her
home on Thursday, May 8.
A memorial service will be
held at the Creekside Com-
munity Church in Arlington
at 5 p.m. Friday, May 16.
Rev. Ben Lane and Rev. Gor-
don Lind will officiate. A
gathering of family and
friends will take place one
hour prior to service time at
the church.
Wilma was born to Roy
and Eva (Solomon) Andrews
on a farm in Cody, Neb., on
April 19, 1921. She attended
Hasting College and worked
for Standard Oil. On Jan. 30,
1960, she married Jack Rezn-
er and became his partner in
his rise to Executive Vice
President of Sales and Serv-
ice of The Burlington North-
ern Railroad. They loved
music, entertaining, golf and
travel. She had toured all 50
states and Europe. She vol-
unteered with the Infant Wel-
fare Society of Chicago, was
a P.E.O. member, read to ele-
mentary school children, and
was a member of The Red
Hat Society. Wilma loved
everyone and everyone loved
her. She made a difference in
people’s lives with her time,
talent and contributions.
Wilma is survived by a son,
Bob (Sandi) Rezner of Ar-
lington; a daughter, Barbara
(James) Murlowski of Den-
ver; five grandchildren; three
great-grandchildren; and a
brother, Ivor (Evelyn) An-
drews of Michigan.
Wilma is preceded in death
by her husband, Jack.
Memorials are preferred to
the Alzheimer’s Association.
Kolden Funeral Home of
Arlington is handling the
arrangements.

The Minnesota river is in ex-
treme flood stage, and up to
Wednesday was still rising. The
water is up to railroad embank-
ment at many places. Water is
over the high-water road at
Blakeley and crossing there is
ended for the time being.
There is a great shortage of
teachers and local school au-
thorities are having difficulty
filling the vacancies on the fac-
ulty for next year. Supt. Hegdal
reports that he could sign up a
couple of teachers - a man and a
woman-if proper living quarters
were available here. The man
has a family and must have a
suitable home, while the woman
whose husband is a college stu-
dent, wishes a furnished apart-
ment where she could do light
housekeeping and have her hus-
band home over the weekend. If
any of our citizens can help out
by providing these accommoda-
tions, they are kindly requested
to call Supt. Hegdal.

LeRoy Pinske, local real es-
tate dealer, sustained a skull
fracture in an accident while en-
tering his auto. He slipped while
getting into the car and struck
his head on one of the sharp
door edges.
Mr. E. H. Schuft of Green
Isle received a painful injury at
the sawmill on the Wm. Proehl
farm when he slipped and fell,
breaking his leg in four places.
Mr. Schuft is able to be up and
around on crutches.
Today a deal was closed
whereby John and Paul Foley
purchased the Hardware Store
and building known as

The Arlington Garden Club
is one of the oldest clubs in
Minnesota. It was started
over 80 years ago by couples
in the Arlington community.
It is a non-profit organization
that has a motto as follows:
“We will pass the way but
once. Let us beautify the way
we go, that the whole world
will know the way we went.”
Our club flower is the petu-
nia and the club colors are
green and white. Our aim is
to beautify our homes and
community, to aid in the pro-
motion and protection of our
trees, plants and birds and to
promote civic improvements.
At present there are 19 mem-
bers. We are always looking
for new members. If interest-
ed, call Larry Gieseke at 964-
5773.
The club meets once a
month usually the first Tues-
day of the month. The club
hosts speakers on various
topics. This year we had
speakers on Honey bees, or-
ganic gardening practices,
rock gardens and will be
hearing about prairie gardens,
you are what you eat (Engel-
mann farms), new plants for
the garden presented by the
Mustard Seed and Orchid
growing. Our field trips will
be to the Engelmann farm
and nursery in Plato, The
Munsinger gardens in St.
Cloud, and the Arboretum to
name a few.
The club presently has
three projects. They are to
keep and update flower beds
in the Hospital Park, plant
and upkeep the planter in the
city parking lot and to upkeep
the flower beds around the
Welcome to Arlington signs
at each end of town on High-
way 5 and having a display
for the Sibley County Fair.
We are presently working on
new plan for the hospital park
beds for the year 2015.
The club is also hosting the
Horticulture meeting on June
10 at the Four Seasons Park
in the Senior Citizens Build-
ing. The registration is $2
which includes lunch and two
speakers. One topic is by
Cory Whitmer from the Mus-
tard Seed on new and unusual
plants to grow in Minnesota.
The other speaker is Peggy
Nerdahl on Jewels of the Gar-
den (various lilies for today’s
gardens). There will also be a
plant sale and a country store
for your perusal. If interested,
call Larry Gieseke for regis-
tration forms.
To help fund these projects
club members ware offering
perennials, annuals, vegeta-
bles and garden supplies
from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Satur-
day, May 31. It will be held at
Liberty Station on Highway
5. If you have any plants that
you are willing to donate they
will be greatly appreciated.

Wall Cloud Over Gaylord
This wall cloud was rotating over the City of Gaylord
between 7 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Thursday, May 8. “It
never spawned a tornado from what we could see,
even though one was called in as on the ground,”
said Green Isle resident Don Burgess, who was
weather spotting for the National Weather Service and
the Sibley County Emergency Radio Team. This photo
was taken along Highway 19 about one mile east of
Gaylord.

Are You Doing A
Drainage Project Or
Breaking Up Land
Landowners and operators
are reminded that in order to
receive payments from
USDA, they must be compli-
ant with Highly Erodible
Land (HEL) and Wetland
Conservation (WC) provi-
sions. Farmers with HEL
determined soils must apply
tillage, crop residue and rota-
tion 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 re-
viewed to ensure any work
will not jeopardize your eligi-
bility for benefits.
Landowners and operators
can complete form AD-1026
Highly Erodible Land Con-
servation (HELC) and Wet-
land Conservation (WC) Cer-
tification to determine
whether a referral to Natural
Resources Conservation
Service (NRCS) is necessary.

The Minnesota Department
of Agriculture (MDA) will set
nearly 15,000 gypsy moth
traps across Minnesota this
spring. The work is part of the
MDA’s annual detection trap-
ping program and is designed
to protect Minnesota’s forests
and urban areas from new in-
festations of gypsy moth.
Beginning May 15, MDA
staff will be out in southern
Minnesota setting traps. The
northern portion of the state
will start to receive traps after
June 12. Setting the thousands
of traps will take several
weeks.
Most of the gypsy moth
traps are small, triangle-
shaped and made of card-
board. Milk carton traps,
which are much larger, are
used in areas of northeastern
Minnesota where moth num-
bers are expected to be much
higher than elsewhere. All of
the traps are set on trees or
poles across the state and con-
tain a pheromone to lure in
male gypsy moths.
Citizens are asked not to
disturb the traps and to call
MDA’s Arrest the Pest Hotline
at 888-545-MOTH if they
would like traps moved or re-
moved from their properties.
Trapping results may identi-
fy areas that need localized
treatments to control the
moths. The Twin Cities metro
area is considered high risk
for human-assisted introduc-
tions of gypsy moth, but trap
counts are still expected to be
low in that area. Northeastern
Minnesota is again expected
to be the hot spot for gypsy
moths in 2014, as the invasion
front has now moved into that
area from infested states to the
east.
“For over 40 years, the
Minnesota Department of
Agriculture and our partners
have protected Minnesota’s
trees from this nasty pest,”
MDA Plant Protection Direc-
tor Geir Friisoe said. “Our ef-
forts have saved important in-
dustries like tourism and
forestry from economic harm.
Each year we delay the moths
is a victory for the environ-
ment and the economy.”
Gypsy moth caterpillars eat
the leaves of many trees and
shrubs, favoring oak, poplar,
birch and willow. Severe, re-
peated infestations can kill
trees, especially when the
trees are already stressed by
drought or other factors.
For more details about the
trapping program and gypsy
moth, visit the MDA website
at www.mda.state.mn.us/gyp-
symoth.

Minnesota livestock pro-
ducers can submit notices of
animal loss and apply for pay-
ment to the U.S. Department
of Agriculture (USDA) Farm
Service Agency (FSA) disas-
ter programs, which were re-
instated with the passage of
the 2014 Farm Bill. Funding
is retroactive and covers some
losses back to October, 2011.
Claims from past years must
have proper documentation to
receive funding, which may
include photos, ownership
records or purchase and trans-
portation receipts.
“With funding restored,
now is the time to act. The
Minnesota Department of
Agriculture (MDA) has been
encouraging producers over
the last few years to document
all losses pending this return
in funding of livestock assis-
tance programs. We encourage
producers to connect with
their local Minnesota FSA to
seek reimbursement,” said
MDA livestock development
supervisor, Curt Zimmerman.
The reimbursements cover
several areas of livestock and
are broken down into three
categories:
Livestock Indemnity Pro-
gram: pays producer for live-
stock deaths dating back to
October, 2011 caused by ad-
verse weather or attacks by
animals reintroduced into the
wild by the federal govern-
ment. Deadline to submit a
notice of loss and application
for payment is January 30,
2015.
Livestock Forage Program:
pays producer for livestock
losses due to drought or fire
on pastureland planted specif-
ically for grazing, dating back
to October, 2011. Deadline to
submit a notice of loss and ap-
plication for payment is Janu-
ary 30, 2015.
Emergency Assistance for
Livestock, Honeybees and
Farm-Raised Fish Program:
provides producer assistance
for eligible losses due to dis-
ease and weather conditions
not covered in the Forage or
Indemnity Programs. These
losses are covered dating back
to 2012 and deadline to sub-
mit a notice of loss and appli-
cation for payment is August
1, 2014.
