City Engineer Jason Fem-
rite presented an update on
the Safe Routes To School
Project to the Arlington City
Council during its regular
meeting on Monday night,
May 20.
Under the proposed sched-
ule, the City Council is ex-
pected to act upon the plans
and specifications for the
project during its regular
meeting on Monday evening,
June 3, according to Femrite.
The City Council is expect-
ed to open bids during a spe-
cial meeting on Thursday,
June 27, Femrite said.
Femrite suggested that the
City Council could hold an
open house for adjacent prop-
erty owners sometime be-
tween Monday, July 8 and
Friday, July 12. He said this
is not a requirement, but a
good move to keep adjacent
property owners updated on
the project.
Femrite said the City Coun-
cil is expected to award the
bid during its regular meeting
on Monday night, July 15.
He added that the 45-day
construction project is sched-
uled to start on Thursday,
Aug. 1.
Grant
The City of Arlington, with
Sibley County as a sponsor
and the Sibley East Public
Schools and St. Paul’s
Lutheran School as coopera-
tive partners, received a fed-
eral $199,980 Safe Routes To
School grant during the late
summer of 2011.
Arlington, at that time, was
one of 16 Minnesota projects
funded by the federal pro-
gram and announced by the
Minnesota Department of
Transportation (Mn/DOT).
Of the 16 projects, 12 are
in Greater Minnesota and the
rest are in the Twin Cities
metropolitan area. All of the
grants will be used to im-
prove or build trails and side-
walks for walking and biking.
The total was $3.8 million.
“These projects will make
walking and biking to school
easier for children and more
acceptable to their parents,”
Mn/DOT Commissioner Tom
Sorel said at the time the
grants were announced. “The
grants will mean safety im-
provements in routes to
school so students will be
more inclined to walk to
school. And walking to
school is another way to in-
crease exercise for healthier
kids.”
Overall, there were 82 ap-
plications representing $83
million in projects.
Local Project
The largest portion of the
project will be along both
sides of Second Avenue
Northwest where sidewalks
will be improved or added to
create continuous sidewalk
from Adams Street to High-
way 5. The project will also
tie into the Prairie Line Trail
segment, which is scheduled
for 2014. That portion will in-
clude St. Paul’s Lutheran
School.
Three alternate segments to
the project, which lead from
the Sibley East athletic com-
plex, were not funded. One or
more of these alternate seg-
ments could be completed de-
pending on the outcome of
the overall bid.
The project has to be com-
pleted by the end of 2013.
Update given on Safe Routes To School Project
Despite the cold weather
and the threat of rain, a
big crowd turned out for
the Memorial Day Pro-
gram in Arlington on
Monday morning, May
27. (Top Photo) The

which is located at the
Sibley County Fair-
grounds in Arlington.

Memorial Day

Farmers who are affected
by the CapX 2020 Project
earned a small victory with
the recent passage of an
amendment to the Minnesota
“Buy The Farm” bill.
The Senate passed the
amendment by a 49-16 bi-
partisan vote on Sunday, May
19, while the House passed
the amendment on a 114-18
bi-partisan vote on Monday
May 20. The bill was later
signed into law by Governor
Mark Dayton.
“Buy The Farm” is a bill
that basically gives farmers
the option to elect to have the
power companies pay them
not only for their land, but for
the true cost of relocation.
This often includes the loss
of business, land, moving ex-
penses and start up fees.
In addition, the new law
says utilities acquiring land
via eminent domain must file
challenges to a landowner’s
request the utility buys the
farm within 60 days.
If an objection is raised by
the utility, the district court
must uphold or reject the
claim within 90 days.
Supportive lawmakers said
the original law passed in
1977 had lost some of its
teeth over the years. They
hope it will help businesses
impacted by utility proposals.
It is basically a clarification
of the law.
Dale and Julie Schwartz,
rural Arlington, and Brad and
Jackie Odenthal, rural Arling-
ton, are just two of many area
farmers who are affected by
the CapX 2020 transmission
line.
Jackie testified at one of
the conference committee
hearings at the State Capitol
in St. Paul a few months ago.
Julie testified “many, many
times” at the State Capitol
during the past four months.
Dale and Julie Schwartz
own an 80-acre farm which is
about eight years shy of cen-
tury status 1 1/2 miles north
of Arlington. They also oper-
ate a 100-cow dairy and have
575 acres of land overall.
Eight poles ranging from
146 feet to 164 feet in height
have been installed on 475
acres of land that the couple
owns.
“Every time we go to get
the mail, go to town or out to
the field we have to drive di-
rectly under these lines,” said
Julie.
The couple has elected to
sell their home, farm build-
ings and 160 acres through
“Buy The Farm” to avoid liv-
ing and raising their dairy
herd near the CapX line, but
the process has taken months.
“We don’t want to give up
any of our land, but we can’t
live here and farm here with
these transmission lines,”
said Julie, who commented
that the couple had only 60
days to decide to make the
election for Buy The Farm.
“It’s not our choice. Basical-
ly, we feel like we’re being
pushed out. We feel like we
don’t have a choice.”
A big problem for the cou-
ple is there are not any dairy
farms for sale in the area.
“And we’ve been looking for
two years,” said Julie. “We
have to stay in the area be-
cause our farm is here.”
If the couple is unable to
relocate the dairy operation,
they will have to sell off its
herd.
A huge concern for the
couple is the potential health
hazards they believe the
transmission line will cause.
“We can’t watch our dairy
herd fall apart,” said Julie.
She added that it would also
be unhealthy for the family to
remain there too.
“We just don’t know hon-
estly what we’re going to
do,” said Julie. “This is our
kids’ livelihood too. It’s a
family farm.”
According to Julie, a 2012
state Appeals Court ruling
bars landowners like the
Schwartzes from collecting
relocation and other expens-
es, which are allowed in
other types of condemnation
proceedings. The “Buy The
Farm” bill will undo that
court decision, which also is
on appeal.
Brad and Jackie Odenthal
own a 205-acre farm about 4
1/2 miles west of Arlington.
They have a 4,000-head pig
nursery and also raise beef
cattle.
Four poles run along the
west side of their farm while
three poles have been in-
stalled on the north side.
The couple has elected to
sell their farm, but has not
been accepted. The matter
will be decided in district
court.
“We wanted to retire in
about five to eight years, but
now we have to start all over
again,” said Jackie. “We have
to relocate and find another
farm.”
The couple, who has
farmed there for 22 years,
had planned to turn the farm
over to their son and keep it
in the family.
The Odenthal family, like

The Veterans Walking Path
Of Honor in Memorial Park
currently has 707 pavers, ac-
cording to Arlington VFW
Commander Blackie
Schwirtz and Arlington
American Legion Command-
er Arden Kreft.
Only a few pavers repre-
sent veterans who served in
multiple wars or in several
branches of service, accord-
ing to accumulated paver sta-
tistics originating in 2004.
The pavers include Army
(516), Navy (107), Air Force
(62), Marines (38), Army Air
Corps (16), Army Nurse
Corps (1), Women’s Army
Corps (1), Merchant Marines
(1), Killed In Action (7),
Missing In Action (1) and
Prisoners Of War (1).
The pavers also include
World War II (240), Korea
(176), Vietnam (146), Peace
Time (53), World War I (37),
Operation Iraqi Freedom
(31), Persian Gulf (19), Oper-
ation Enduring Freedom (11),
Civil War (11), Granada (8),
Lebanon (5), Iraq (3), Pana-
ma (2), Operation Noble
Eagle (2), Kosovo (1), Pana-
ma Canal Zone (1), Panama
Invasion (1), Desert Storm
(1) and Afghanistan (1).
Originally, the available
space for pavers would take
many years to fill. However,
opening the walking path to
veterans from anywhere
added to the consumption of
a few of the available spaces.
The orders placed before Me-
morial Day 2014 will com-
pletely fill all remaining
spaces in the Veterans Walk-
ing Path Of Honor.
Schwirtz and Kreft said
plans are being formulated
for a possible expansion in
the fall of 2013. The funding
for this endeavor will be
made possible by paver pur-
chases, veterans donations
and private donations.
The Veterans Walking Path
Of Honor accepts no city,
county, state or federal funds
in taxes or grants.
The arrangement of tours
and further information are
available by calling 507-381-
8320.

Sibley County will advance
forward the County State Aid
Highway (CSAH) funding for
road improvement projects in
2014 to provide a higher
quality of surface on some
roads this year.
Public Works Director
Darin Mielke brought the
proposal to the board of com-
missioners at the meeting on
Tuesday, May 28.
At a previous meeting, the
county awarded the CSAH
bituminous overlays contract
to Wm. Mueller & Sons, Inc.
“At that time I mentioned
that with such low bids we
could explore the possibility
of doing something more
with CSAH 8,” Mielke told
the board. “We did do some
investigation on CSAH 8 and
talked to Wm. Mueller &
Sons.”
Mielke asked for a supple-
mental agreement for Wm.
Mueller & Sons to add on to
the current project. Plus,
Mielke asked for a resolution
to advance next year’s state
funding.
The low bid for the overlay
project was close to 25 per-
cent under the engineer’s esti-
mate of around $3,030,000,
or about $700,000 lower than
expected.
That was the reason why
Mielke returned to the ques-
tion about a possible more
expensive and longer lasting
upgrade to CSAH 8, after the
board decided to go with a
less expensive overlay
process.
In his research, Mielke did
discover one concern. The
pavement that was poured on
part of CSAH 8 east of State
Highway 12 was much thick-
er than thought it would be
and was disqualified from the
pavement reclamation project
involving grinding up of ex-
isting pavement.
However, the part west of
Highway 15 is still a good
option for reclamation. The
proposed project addition in-
volves reclamation on CSAH
from CSAH 3 to TH 15. Plus,
there will be a slightly thicker
overlay on CSAH 8 from TH
15 to CSAH 23.
“Looking at the financial
part, the project will actually
stay within our 2014 state aid
allotment, ” said Mielke.
“There are no other local
costs incurred at all and we
don’t have to dig into re-
serves.”
The county voted to take
$1,466,000 out of the 2013
state highway fund which is
expected to be about $1.6
million. That leaves about
$150,000 leftover. Mielke
said there are no other CSAH
funded projects planned for
next year.
Sibley County votes to give CSAH 8
a better upgrade at regular meeting
By Karin Ramige Cornwell
Manager
The Sibley East School
Board, during its recent
monthly meeting, tabled a
discussion to increase the dis-
trict’s activity fees until the
Extracurricular Committee
can meet with Activity Direc-
tor Randy Walsh to discuss
options.
The proposed increase of
five to 10 dollars per category
is due to an increase of $1000
in the athletic contract with
Ridgeview Medical Center.
The increase in the contract
is for the required ImPACT
concussion testing.
The proposed activity fees
for varsity sports (grades 9-
12) would increase from
$100 to $110, junior high
sports (grades 7-8) and cheer-
leading from $80 to $90.
The fee for other activities,
such as plays, DECA,
Knowledge Bowl, Speech,
Jazz Band and Swing Choir
would increase form $25 to
$30.
The activity fees for stu-
dents that qualify for free and
reduced lunches would in-
crease by five dollars.
Students qualifying for re-
duced lunches would pay a
fee of $75 for varsity sports
and $60 for junior high sports
and cheerleading.
Fees for students in the free
lunch category would be $40
for varsity sports and $35 for
junior high and cheerleading.
There is no reduced fee
schedule for activities.
The family maximum for
athletics would increase $50
to $450 excluding any fees
paid for activities.
School Board member
Scott Dose asked about the
possibility of charging admis-
sion for sporting events such
as track and baseball that do
not currently have an admis-
sion fee. “It’s starting to get a
little ridiculus what we
charge for fees,” he added.
School Board member
Missy Weber said she was
not supportive of the fee hike
and had looked at the fee
schedules from other schools
in the conference.
Other districts include ac-
tivity fees for non-athletic ac-
tivities into the maximum.
She also noted that some
districts have higher fees for
those sports such as football
that are more costly and also
bring in more revenue.
She said there are already
sports and activities that the
district doesn’t have due to
lack of participants and is
concerned that raising the
fees would further hinder par-
ticipation.
Dose made a motion to
table the item until the June
board meeting until the com-
mittee could meet with Walsh
to discuss other options to
make up the additional
$1,000 for the concussion
testing.
Members of the Extra Cur-
ricular Committee are Ann
Karl, Brian Brandt, and Scott
Dose.

proved the hiring of Tim
Schellhammer as the high

Legislative session ends
and campaigning starts
Our View: Some things never change
Opinions
Guest Columns
The 2013 Minnesota legislative session recently ended
and campaigning for the next election is already underway.
Politicians from both major parties are now taking their
case to the people and outside groups are preparing to pour
millions of dollars into those campaigns.
The House and governorship will be on the ballot during
the general election in 2014. Senate members, who were
elected or re-elected to four-year terms in 2012, will be on
the ballot in 2016.
The DFLers, who are in full control of state government
for the first time since 1990, are happy because they will
be able to boast about their long list of accomplishments
during the recent session.
The Republicans, who are trying to regroup after losing
many seats in the House and Senate in the last election,
will no doubt try to use some of these same accomplish-
ments as potent political issues in the next election.
Unfortunately, it’s all a game and the people are the los-
ers again. Rather than work together and compromise for
the good of all Minnesotans, politicians from both major
parties want it their way or no way at all. The Republicans
showed this last year while the Democrats did it this year.
This should come as no surprise to citizens across the state.
Politicians from both parties at the state level have al-
ways had other priorities. Their top priority is to get re-
elected. Their second goal is party loyalty while the third
objective is to keep special interest groups happy. The citi-
zens sadly are fourth on the list. Until politicians from both
parties decide to put citizens first, Minnesotans as a whole
will suffer.

A man burned his finger so he de-
cided to go to the doctor. When he
arrived at the office, the nurse direct-
ed him to remove all his clothes, and
wait in the next room.
“It’s just my finger,” complained
the man. “Why do I need to take off
my clothes?”
“Everyone who sees the doctor
has to undress,” explained the nurse.
“It’s our policy.”
“Well, I think it’s a stupid policy!”
answered the man.
From the next room, another
man’s voice piped in, “That’s
nothing! I just came to fix the
heat.”
*****
A couple was driving their
teenaged daughter to the hospital
where she was scheduled to undergo
a tonsillectomy. They discussed how
the procedure would be performed.
“Dad” the teenager asked, “how
are they going to get me to keep my
mouth open the whole time?”
Her Dad looked through the
rear view mirror and chuckled,
“They’re going to give you a
phone.”
*****
When an instructor was giving
driving classes to a bunch of
teenagers, he had one smart kid who
always had something to answer
back. So one day he says to the
class, “You know that 90 percent of
accidents happen within three miles
of your home!”
So this smart kid raises his hand.
“What do you want Tommy?” the in-
structor asks.
Tommy grins and replies, “Big
deal. I’ll move!”
*****
A mechanic called one of his cus-
tomers after a check bounced. “The
check you sent me to pay your bill
came back!” he yelled!
The customer replied, “Well, so
did all my car problems that you
fixed!”

A boy came home from school
one day with a note that said he was
given detention.
His father asked him, “What hap-
pened, son?”
The son replied, “I was punished
for something I didn’t do!”
“Okay,” the father said. “I will
have to talk to the teacher, but, by
the way, what was it that you didn’t
do?”
The son looked and his father
and said, “Oh, my homework!”
*****
A boy brought home his test
scores from school and his Dad was
very disappointed. He called his son
over for a chat. “Whats going on?”
The son looked at his Dad and
said, “Dad, at least you know I
never cheat on the tests!”
By Lee H. Hamilton
When two senators recently got
into a spat over whether the Boston
Marathon bombings were being
politicized, the news was every-
where within minutes. Reams of
commentary quickly followed. In
the maneuvering over gun-control
legislation, every twist and turn was
instantly reported and then endlessly
debated. As the effects of the federal
sequester start to make themselves
felt, outlets in every medium —
print, television, online — are carry-
ing both the news and the inevitable
partisan sniping over its meaning.
This is political reality today, and
when people ask me how politics
has changed since I first ran for
Congress in 1964, it’s the first thing
that comes to mind. Back then,
when you spoke to the Rotary in a
small town, you were speaking to a
few members of the Rotary. Today,
you might well be speaking to the
world. A debate on Capitol Hill back
then might or might not have made
the news, but even if it did, days
could go by before the rest of the
country reacted. Today, the response
is instantaneous, often hot-blooded,
and almost inconceivably far-reach-
ing.
It’s not just the sheer proliferation
and aggressiveness of the media that
have ratcheted up the intensity of
political life. Almost every facet of
politics is more complicated and
hard-edged. Voters want instant re-
sults. Consultants are everywhere.
Lobbyists have multiplied and be-
come immeasurably sophisticated at
finding ways to get what they want.
Well-funded, highly organized inter-
est groups enrich the DC region’s
economy, while in the rest of the
country grassroots organizations try
to influence policy on every cause
under the sun. All of this, in turn,
has created an unending flood of
money. Politics is now big business.
Perhaps because of the scrutiny
that political decisions now get —
and the speed with which organiza-
tions turn those decisions into
fundraising opportunities — it is
much harder to do the basic work of
politics: finding common ground. I
don’t think I’m being overly rosy in
saying that a generation ago, when
politicians of differing views met to
hammer out their differences, they
actually hammered out their differ-
ences. It was not easy, but they be-
lieved that as elected officials they
had a responsibility to find their way
out of difficult problems together.
They understood that this usually
meant accepting a solution that was
less than perfect.
Today, the first words out of a
politician’s mouth when presented
with a new proposal are, “It doesn’t
measure up.” Incremental achieve-
ments have come to be seen as
shameful concessions, to be avoided
if at all possible. In a Washington
that is more ideological, more parti-
san, and less pragmatic than it used
to be, the bedrock notion that politi-
cians would come together to make
the country work seems quaint. It
hasn’t disappeared entirely, but it’s
certainly endangered.
Which may be one reason there’s
been another change I’ve seen in
politics over the years. I first went to
Congress at a time when Americans
had faith in the institutions of gov-
ernment. The year I ran for office,
Lyndon Johnson was campaigning
for President on a platform that the
country could successfully wage a
war against poverty. Today, it seems
inconceivable that a politician
would be so bold or so naive — it’s
not just that Americans have been
chastened in their ambitions in the
nearly 50 years since, but that they
would have very little confidence
that government could deliver. Con-
gress can’t even get a normal budget
done on time. A “war” on anything
seems beyond its grasp.
I don’t mean to be entirely nega-
tive. Politics’ greater intensity also
has its bright spots. There are more
and often better sources of informa-
tion. Ordinary Americans are highly
engaged, with more avenues of
entry into the system. If you want to
understand even the most complex
issues facing Congress, it’s possible
to learn about them far more easily
than just a few decades ago.
Perhaps that’s something to build
on. With greater public sophistica-
tion about a complex system, Amer-
icans might also show more patience
with politicians trying in good faith
to resolve our challenges. And if that
happens, who knows? Maybe we’ll
even discover that government can,
in fact, successfully tackle the big
problems.

Center on Congress at Indiana Uni-
versity. He was a member of the
U.S. House of Representatives for

How politics has changed
By Phil Krinkie
Now that the 2013 legislative ses-
sion has concluded there may be a
lot of Minnesota voters who are
sorry now. Sorry about how they
voted or maybe sorry that they
didn’t vote. Just like the words of
that 1958 hit record sung by Connie
Francis, “Who’s Sorry Now?” about
their decision last November.
Many voters who went to the
polls last November didn’t truly
know the individual for whom they
voted. Perhaps they voted by party
label, or maybe they voted based on
a key issue or it could have been a
campaign ad. But as the saying
goes, “elections have conse-
quences.”
Upon review of this year’s leg-
islative actions, these words certain-
ly ring true. Most Minnesotans had
no concept of what would happen to
their liberties, their livelihood or
their wallets once this group of leg-
islators gathered in St. Paul last Jan-
uary. By the time the Democrat
controlled Legislature adjourned in
May, they had raised taxes by over
$2 billion and increased state gener-
al fund spending by $3 billion, or
more than eight percent.
They also increased the state’s
debt by $175 million and failed to
deliver on their promise to re-pay
the K-12 school shift. Many voters
supported the Democrats in Novem-
ber because of a belief they would
erase the school payment delay.
With the session now concluded, de-
spite the $2 billion tax increase,
there was no change in the school
re-payment plan. Who’s sorry now?
Another charge leveled against
Republicans in the fall elections was
budget mismanagement. The fact is
our state budget problems were
caused by a Democrat controlled
legislature the previous four years.
By the time Republicans gained the
majorities in the Minnesota House
and Senate in 2011 there was a $5
billion budget hole left by the De-
mocrats. Despite the liberals’
claims of budget cuts the reality is
that state general fund spending in-
creased by $8 billion over the previ-
ous ten years, about 30 percent.
During the 2011 legislative ses-
sion there was a protracted budget
battle with Governor Mark Dayton
over the 2012-2013 budget, which
ultimately erased the $5 billion
deficit without raising taxes. This
budget challenge was handled in
large part due to the fiscal restraint
exerted by the Republicans. The re-
sults of their efforts were demon-
strated in February 2013 when the
following budget forecast projected
only a $627 million shortfall. The
Democrat’s solution to solve this
budget imbalance was to raise taxes
by over $2 billion. The absence of a
balance of power allowed them to
grow state government by over eight
percent. In the last four months the
Democrats rush to grow government
pales in comparison to anything that
has occurred in the last 20 years.
Who’s sorry now?

of the arrangements.
On Feb. 23, 1939, God
blessed Alford and Evelyn
(Soeffker) Voigt of Green Isle
in Helen Township, McLeod
County, with the gift of a lit-
tle boy.
These Christian parents
demonstrated their faith in
God’s baptismal grace by
bringing him into God’s fam-
ily of believers through the
Sacrament of Holy baptism
on Feb. 24, 1939. Rev. R. W.
Rottmann administered the
sacrament in their home and
the name Kenneth Alford
Voigt was recorded in God’s
book of life.
On April 26, 1953, Ken
was confirmed in the Confes-
sional Lutheran Christian
faith at St. Paul’s Evangelical
Lutheran Church in Green
Isle. Rev. R. Arndt assigned
Proverbs 23:26 as his com-
memoration passage: “My
son, give me your heart and
let your eyes keep to my
ways.”
On June 27, 1959, Ken was
joined in holy matrimony to
Patricia Jane Jacobson at the
United Methodist Church in
Arlington. Rev. Morgan offi-
ciated. The Lord blessed this
union with the gift of two
sons and one daughter, grant-
ing them just shy of 54 years
together as husband and wife.
Ken received his elemen-
tary education at St. Paul’s
Lutheran School in Green
Isle and received two years of
high school education at the
Glencoe High School in
Glencoe, before entering the
work force. Ken used his
God-given talents to provide
for his family through em-
ployment in general construc-
tion, and for a number of
years as an employee of Su-
perior Tile and Terrazzo, Inc.
Ken enjoyed gardening and
woodworking, and spending
time with family and friends.
Ken was preceded in death
by his parents; two brothers,
Duane and Darrel; and four
brothers-in-law, Loyd Jacob-
son, Lyle Latzke, Alloyd
Hebeisen and Larry Voight;
and a sister-in-law, Lucy Ja-
cobson.
Ken is survived by his
wife, Pat; his son, Brad
(Stacy) of Maple Lake; his
son, Perry (Chris) of Coon
Rapids; his daughter, Korri
Zila of Farmington; sisters

grandchildren, Elias, Micah
and Jude Schroeder along
with nieces and nephews and

Ken was a member in good
standing of St. Paul’s Evan-
gelical Lutheran Church at
the time the Lord summoned
him to Heaven. The Lord
called Ken to his eternal
place of rest early Sunday
morning, May 19, at the Oak
Terrace Healthcare Center in
Gaylord, at the age of 74
years, two months and 26
days.

going after CapX 2020 to
make a profit. Both families
just want to be fairly compen-

is in limbo. We’re in between
a rock and a hard place. There
is nothing we can do.”

Boys are 6th at sub section track meet

The visiting Sibley East
varsity boys baseball team
was blanked by Glencoe-Sil-
ver Lake 2-0 during the open-
ing round of the Sub Section
2AA North Baseball Tourna-
ment on Saturday afternoon,
May 25.
The game was a pitching
duo between Sibley East lefty
Brody Rodning and Glencoe-
Silver Lake southpaw Ethan
Maass who combined for 23
strikeouts.
Sibley East had its only
chance to score in the top of
the third inning when leadoff
hitter Austin Brockhoff
drilled a single and swiped
second base. Maass, however,
struck out the next three bat-
ters and ended the threat.
The Panthers touched Rod-
ning and the Wolverines for
the only two runs of the game
in the bottom of the fifth in-
ning.
Carter Pinske started the
Panther rally with a leadoff
walk and advanced to second
base after Sibley East com-
mitted an error on a pickoff
play. After Rodning struck
out Derek Bratsch, a bunt by
Brody Bratsch moved Pinske
to third base.
After Brody Bratsch
swiped second base, Teddy
Petersen was unsuccessful in
three consecutive suicide
squeeze bunt attempts and
struck out.
The Wolverines then inten-
tionally walked Maas as GSL
loaded the bases with two
outs.
The Panthers then executed
a successful baserunning play
which plated its first run.
Brody Bratsch intentionally
wandered off second base too
far after a Rodning pitch to
home plate. Rodning, after
the return throw from Sibley
East catcher Cody Doetkott,
threw the ball to second base-
man Nathan Thomes in an at-
tempt to tag out Brody
Bratsch. The throw and tag
were too late and Pinske ran
home with the first run of the
game.
Brody Bratsch scored mo-
ments later when Nolan
Lepel followed with an RBI
single which gave GSL a 2-0
lead.
After Rodning hit Reed
Dunbar with a pitch, the Sib-
ley East lefty retired Brandon
Ebert on a comeback ground-
ed.
Neither team mounted a se-
rious rally after the fifth in-
ning.
Brockhoff, a rightfielder
for the Wolverines, con-
tributed an outstanding slid-
ing catch up against the fence
in foul territory during the
bottom of the sixth inning.
Rodning pitched the entire
game and suffered the mound
loss. The lefty yielded two
earned runs on just five hits.
He also fanned eight, walked
four and hit one batter.
Brockhoff collected the
only hit for the Wolverines
who struck out 15 times in
the loss.
“We ran into a very good
pitching performance by
Ethan Maass,” said Sibley
East head coach Dan Tack-
mann. “It’s hard to score
with only one hit and 15
strikeouts. We had a chance
to get the lead early on GSL
with Austin Brockhoff reach-
ing second base, but we
weren’t able to advance him.”
Tackmann added, “Brody
Rodning kept us in the game
with his pitching, and our de-
fense for the most part did,
too. Hopefully, the experi-
ence gained by our younger
players this season will be
very valuable for next year.”
The Wolverines concluded
the season with a 6-8 mark in
the Minnesota River Confer-
ence and a 7-10 record over-
all.

History

98 Years Ago
June 3, 1915
Buck & Didra, Publishers
Mr. Fred Bethke, one of the
prominent young farmers of
Kelso, has forsaken the ranks of
the Bachelorhood and joined the
Benedicts. He was united in
marriage Wednesday afternoon,
May 26, to Miss Clara Kuhn,
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John
Kuhn, at their home in Town
Pella, near Clintonville, Wis.
The newlyweds arrived home
Tuesday evening and will go to
housekeeping on the groom’s
fine farm in Kelso.
The visit of the delegates of
the Civic and Commerce Asso-
ciation of Minneapolis to our
city Monday was the occasion
of a large gathering here at
noon, at least 1, 000 people
being present to welcome them.
A procession of 25 horsemen
with the local band met them at
the depot and escorted them up
Main Street to the City Hall
square, where President Vesta of
the Commercial Club introduced
Rev. Fr. Rant who addressed the
gathering on our home resources
and welcomed the guests to our
beautiful little city.
Arlington will henceforth be a
dustless town. The new sprin-
kler was put to work yesterday
and is a great improvement.

Robert W. Mueller, of Ar-
lington, and his bride, the for-
mer Lorraine Andersen, of Min-
neapolis, were married May
26th at Mt. Olivet Lutheran
Church in Minneapolis. The
bride attended St. Olaf College,
Northfield, and Mr. Mueller is a
graduate of that college. The
couple will be at home at 2886
James Avenue South after July
1.
John Huberty, Jr. , 37, of
LeSueur, was killed instantly
last Thursday afternoon when
struck by a bolt of lightning
while fishing on Dog Lake near
Winsted. He was standing in the
boat with fishing rod in hand
during the thunder storm when
the bolt struck him.
Mrs. John O’Meara, one of
Green Isle’s oldest and most
beloved pioneer women, passed
away yesterday morning at
10:30 o’clock, at the home of
her son-in-law and daughter, Mr.
and Mrs. F. H. Groetsch. She
was 86 years of age.

The Minnesota Environmen-
tal Quality Council (EQC) will
hold informational meetings on
the Northern States Power Com-
pany site proposals for an elec-
tric generating plant in either
Sherburne or Sibley County. A
meeting will be held on Thurs-
day, June 5, at 8:30 p.m. in the
Arlington Community Hall.
EQC staff and representatives
will answer questions about the
proposed sites at the meetings.
Harris Robeck of Arlington
caught a 20-pound northern at
Pine Mountain Lake near Brain-
erd on Memorial Day. He also
caught a seven pound northern
and four three-pounders. His big
one is 40-inches long and he
plans to have it mounted.
Sunday afternoon at 2 o’clock
the Arlington A’s will play host
to the New Ulm Kaiserhoff team
in the opening baseball game of
the 1975 Ara Wilson League.
Playing for the team this year
are Dan O’Brien, Scott Dooner,
Mike and Dave Hartmann, Craig
and Kim Glieden, Dave Ott,
Jack Menzel, Greg Kubal, Greg
Thomes, Larry Marquardt, Greg
Odegaard, Curt Erickson, Bill
and Jim O’Brien and manager
Moose Meyer. The A’s are the

8 Years Ago

Myrtle (Sander) Lundberg, a
resident at Highland Commons
in Arlington, celebrated her
100th birthday on Friday, May
20, 2005. Myrtle was born to
William and Mary (Lehnert)
Sander on the family farm in
Kelso Township about 8 miles
south of Arlington. She was
married to Bernard Lundberg on
May 1, 1941. The couple had
one child, Mary.
Gilbert Mathwig received a
50-year pin as a member of the
Green Isle American Legion
Post # 408. Mathwig received
his pin during the Memorial day
Program in Green Isle on Mon-
day. His brother, Manley Math-
wig, was also recognized as a
50-year member, but was unable
to attend the program.
Tom and Vicki Pomplun, Ar-
lington, are proud to announce
the birth of their daughter,
Samantha Jo Pomplun, who was
born at the Ridgeview Medical
Center in Waconia on Friday,
May 20, 2005. She weighed
seven pounds and measured 19
inches long. Samantha was wel-
comed home by her big sister,
Mackenzie, age 5.
The Democrats whopping
tax increase will move Min-
nesota’s income tax rate to the
fourth highest in the nation
with the new fourth tier rate
of 9.85 percent, starting at
$150,000 of income for indi-
viduals. In their Tax Bill,
sales taxes are added to inter-
net purchases as well as satel-
lite subscribers and commer-
cial warehouse fees. Cigarette
smokers will get hammered
with an added $1.60 per pack
and businesses with foreign
operating income will pay
more in state taxes.
Governor Dayton’s promise
from last year not to use gen-
eral tax dollars to pay for the
new billion dollar Vikings sta-
dium went up in smoke, with
the use of cigarette taxes as a
back-up plan to pay for the
facility. In addition to this
private business subsidy, tens
of millions more in taxpayer
dollars will be given to other
private businesses like 3M,
the Mall of America and Bax-
ter International.
Let’s not forget we will all
be paying more for electricity
because of mandates on elec-
tric companies imposed by
DFL legislators. Then of
course there is the legislation
that calls for the unionization
of independent daycare
providers and personal care
attendants, which in turn will
drive up child care and health
care costs. Who’s sorry now?
But it’s not only what De-
mocrat legislators were able
to pile on already over-bur-
dened Minnesotans taxpayers
this year but what they have
on deck for next year. De-
spite the enormous tax in-
creases that did become law
this year, DFL legislators still
have an entire laundry list of
taxes and regulatory items
that they didn’t pass this year.
Taxes they proposed but
didn’t enact this year include
a sales tax on clothing, in-
creased taxes on alcohol as
well as higher gas taxes. Also
left on the sideline was a four
percent income tax surcharge.
And last but certainly not the
least is Governor Dayton’s
“snow bird” tax which would
make anyone who resides in
Minnesota for more than 60
days pay state income taxes.
The voters who are sorry
now about supporting the De-
mocrats could include thou-
sands of people, but a list
would certainly include small
business owners, daycare
providers, farmers, smokers,
internet shoppers and electric-
ity consumers. Due to the
Democrats massive tax in-
creases virtually everyone
will pay more in taxes as well
as more for most goods and
services. Few if any will es-
cape the tax impact of the
2013 legislature’s actions.
Just like the lyrics in the
song state, “Right to the end
just like a friend, I tried to
warn you somehow; you had
your way, now you must
pay.” Who’s sorry now?
Thousands of hard working
Minnesotans.

Elementary Carnival
The annual Sibley East Elementary Carnival was held
at the Gaylord school site on Thursday night, May 23.
Jopheth Walker from Bampton, Ontario, Canada, took
his turn at this game during the carnival. His parents
are Kevin and Cindy Walker. He was visiting his
grandparents Wally and Janet Lind in Gaylord.
Although some parking is-
sues still need to be ironed
out, the Belle Plaine City
Council recently approved
the conditional use permit
and site plan for the upcom-
ing expansion of Our Lady of
the Prairie Catholic Church
and School at 200 East
Church Street, according to
an article in the Belle Plaine
Herald.
OLP is planning to con-
struct an 11,335-square-foot
addition this summer on the
southeast side of the existing
church. The existing school
building, one of Belle
Plaine’s oldest structures, will
be demolished after the com-
pletion of the new building.
The estimated cost of the
project is $1.8 million, much
of which was raised by vari-
ous fundraisers by the church
and its members.
