County Board votes 3-2 to support Second Amendment resolution
By Lori Copler Staff Writer The McLeod County Board of Commissioners voted 3-2 in front of a full house Tuesday morning to support a resolution that “will prevent federal infringement on the right to keep and bear arms; nullifying all federal acts in violation of the Second Amendment to the Constitution of the United States.” Commissioner Jon Christensen brought the resolution to the County Board, saying that “nullification” is an act of pushing back when “the federal government expands law beyond the boundaries of the constitution.” While all five commissioners indicated their support of the Second Amendment, the split vote was based on their interpretation of whether the County Board should wade into a federal and state issue. County Attorney Mike Junge told the Board that its authority was created by state statute, and that it was tasked with administering county government, which should be its focus. “There is nothing in the statutes that gives you the authority to be entering into this fight, and it’s one you should stay out of,” said Junge, who argued that support of the County Board of the resolution could open the door to its participation in other issues, such as abortion, gay marriage and the gold standard. But Duncan Cameron, a resident of Rich Valley Township, argued that government starts from the bottom and goes up. “It’s local to county to state to federal,” said Cameron, noting that there were individual states before there was a union of states. “We, the individuals, have the jurisdiction of federal government.” And Commissioner Ron Shimanski said that part of each commissioner’s oath office was a pledge to uphold the Constitution. “We made a pledge to the Constitution, not to the laws, rules and statutes that came after it,” said Shimanski. Commissioners Kermit Terlinden and Paul Wright, who both avowed that they are avid sportsmen and Second Amendment supporters, indicated that they did not feel that the County Board was the place to take on the issue. Terlinden said that any change to the Second Amendment would have to come at the federal level, and would require stringent votes for change. “It truly does take an act of Congress,” said Terlinden, who pointed out that it takes a two-thirds vote in each chamber and a three-fourths vote of states to change an amendment. “I don’t think it’s up to the five people sitting here to make this decision,” said Terlinden, who added that if there was a push to change the amendment, “I would be the first in line” in the fight against it. Rosalind Kohls of Glencoe said that the resolution is not asking to change the Second Amendment, “but to uphold it. I would think you should be able to do that.” “I do not feel the County Board needs to go there,” said Wright of his stance on the issue. “We don’t have the authority by statute.” But Wright also said that he is a member of the National Rifle Association and a strong

Rhonda Kaczmarek and daughter, Chris Brecht, purchased and reloacted Joan Paulson’s costume shop, “Grandma’s Closet,” to the old Slanga hardware building
in Silver Lake. Costumes can be rented for all sorts of occasions, including themed parties, school plays, local theater groups, and other fashionable events.
Grandma’s Closet changes hands, location, but not its costumes, props
By Alyssa Schauer Staff Writer ilver Lake has become a little more fashionable with the recent relocation and change in ownership of the wellknown costume shop, Grandma’s Closet. The shop, which was started 10 years ago by Joan Paulson, changed hands this spring when Darrell and Rhonda Kaczmarek and their daughter and son-in-law, Chris and Jared Brecht, joined forces and purchased the business.
They relocated the business to the old Slanga Hardware/Ziemer building, located on Lake Avenue and Main Street, behind the current Silver Lake Leader office. “I always thought it’d be fun to own a costume shop, and when we saw Joan advertising the business in the paper, Darrell said, ‘Well, want to go for it?’” Rhonda Kaczmarek said. “I was kind of thinking along the same lines when I saw it advertised, and talked with Jared about it,” Chris
Brecht said. “We didn’t know Mom and Dad were looking at it until it was brought up at the business association meeting,” Brecht said. “That’s when we decided to talk about owning it together. It’s actually pretty nice to have both of us running it, so that there’s more availability for appointments,” Kaczmarek said. Rhonda Kaczmarek works full time at Sumter Mutual Insurance Company in Silver Lake and Chris Brecht is employed full time as an insur-
ance agent at Citizens Insurance Agency in Hutchinson, so the business is open by appointment only. “Since I work in Silver Lake a block from the costume shop, my schedule is flexible to meet people, and in October, when it is closer to Halloween and busier, we’ll try to be open nights and weekends,” Rhonda Kaczmarek said. The costume shop has more than enough costumes,

Officials: follow Grove Avenue detour, or get cited
By Alyssa Schauer Staff Writer Construction on County State Aid Highway 2 (CSAH 2)/Grove Avenue began last Monday, April 29, and drivers are reminded to use the posted detours to travel in and out of Silver Lake. The detour from Silver Lake to Glencoe directs traffic along Highway 7 to Highway 15, then along County Road 22 to County Road 2. Grove Avenue/CSAH 2 is open only to school buses. All faculty and staff of Lakeside Elementary are to use the detour. The one-way street in front of Lakeside Elementary is currently remaining a oneway street. Police Chief Forrest Henriksen has already issued over 30 citations for drivers misusing the one-way street. “We will continue to issue citations for people traveling the wrong way on the oneway street. Citations will also be issued for those driving around the barricades and driving on closed roads during construction,” Henriksen said. He added that a plan to make the one-way street temporarily a two-way street is in discussion, but the oneway will be enforced until that decision is made. Drivers are urged to follow the detour signs when traveling south of Silver Lake or driving northbound into Silver Lake. Signs are posted on Highway 7, Highway 15, and at the intersection of CSAH 2 and 22. Construction is expected to last through the summer, and a final end date is set for Sept. 13.
County attorney report: recession impacts crime statistics
By Lori Copler Staff Writer The economy continues to impact the number of felony convictions both statewide and in McLeod County, the County Board of Commissioners learned at its April 30 meeting. McLeod County Attorney Mike Junge gave his annual report, noting that the number of felony convictions in the county in 2011, the latest year available, was 94, as compared to a peak of 141 felony convictions in 2007. It was 2008, Junge said, when the current economic recession started, which resulted in the dip of felony charges and convictions. “Crimes involving drugs, alcohol, sex and gambling make up 90 to 95 percent of the criminal acts” prosecuted by his office, said Junge. One would assume that crime would increase during hard economic times, but the opposite is true. “At least three of those — drugs, alcohol and gambling — take money,” said Junge. “And when people don’t have the money to spend, the crimes go down.” But overall, the number of felony crimes prosecuted by his office has risen dramatically since he was first elected in 1982, Junge said. In 1982, the McLeod County Attorney’s Office prosecuted 30 felonies. Part of the reason is what Junge referred to as criminal inflation — crimes that were misdemeanors in 1982, such as driving under the influence, can now be gross misdemeanors or even felonies, depending on the applicable laws. In 2012, drug offenses led the county’s felony and gross misdemeanor adult criminal charges with a total of 53. Next highest was assault charges with 41, which Junge indicated was another indicator of the economy — more crimes occur in the home because people don’t get out as much. There were 30 theft charges and 27 driving while impaired offenses. Of all criminal charges filed, including felonies, gross misdemeanors and petty misdemeanors, there were 176 males charged and 68 females. Junge said there always has been a wide gap in gender when it comes to criminal charges, because males seem to mature later. “Part of my job is to see that males get through to their 27th or 28th birthdays, because after that age they don’t repeat,” said Junge. Along with prosecuting criminal cases, the attorney’s office also handles legal issues for Social Services, such as parental rights, guardianship and conservatorship, child protection and issues involving the mentally ill; appeals of criminal convictions; real estate tax appeals; highway department easements, right-of-way and other legal issues; and any civil lawsuits filed against the county. In other business April 30, the County Board: • Bought another mobile recycling collection trailer for the Solid Waste Department at a cost of $22,245, which could be stationed in various communities during town celebrations as a place to deposit recyclables. The Board agreed to spend another $3,000 on graphics for the trailer. Both will be paid for through the abatement fee fund. • Bought 15 additional recycling baskets for a total cost of $20,250 to accommodate the increase in material being brought to the Solid Waste Facility. That cost also will be paid for through the abatement fee fund.

Costumes Continued from page 1
and for all occasions. Kaczmarek and Brecht said Joan Paulson had outfitted school plays, local theater groups, themed parties and, of course, Halloween. “We plan on doing the same. Just last month, we put together Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton costumes for a couple going to a themed party. And last week, we found a bright orange ‘Dumb and Dumber’ suit for someone participating in the Hutchinson Hockey Association auction bidding,” Kaczmarek said. Brecht said they also provided costumes for an after prom “Western” photo shoot at Lester Prairie High School. “We have everything. Prom dresses,’60s, ’70s, and ’80s clothes. Military uniforms, old band uniforms, disco costumes and tuxes,” Kaczmarek said. “We have 1920s flapper stuff, too, and, of course, kids’ costumes. Lots and lots of kids’ costumes,” Brecht said. The pair also said they have more than clothes. “Joan did a good job of purchasing and collecting accessories. We have tons of accessories that really complete the costumes. Shoes, wigs, hats, jewelry, you name it,” Kaczmarek said. Kaczmarek and Brecht, with the help of their husbands, and other family members, spent three Saturdays moving the costume shop from Paulson’s home to the old Slanga Hardware/ Ziemer building in town. “Joan had a 30-foot by 40foot pole shed filled with costumes, so we had to rent a storage shed just to help get everything organized as we moved. “It was fun moving, because every time we looked through a bag, it seemed we’d find a fun costume surprise,” Kaczmarek said. “I’m really looking forward to meeting people and helping put together costumes. “I’ve been using Google a lot just to look up costumes — to get all the details right, like those Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton costumes. We really want the costumes to be authentic,” Brecht said. Kaczmarek and Brecht said they plan on hosting a grand opening event sometime in October. To rent costumes, call Rhonda Kaczmarek at 320327-0144 or Chris Brecht at 320-510-1567.

Grandmas: like bonus mothers
Mother’s Day is right around the corner, and not only do I have one wonderful mother to celebrate, but two grandmas who have been very much like mothers to me in the last three years of living in Silver Lake. Both are exceptionally kind and giving, and I am so thankful to have them in my life. Grandma Genny is often buzzing around town, volunteering for activities at Cedar Crest, helping out friends in need, or taking great-grandpa and great-grandma to appointments. And she never fails to stop into the Leader office for a quick hug or to drop off warm kolaches. She’s always there to make sure I take care of my noisy Jeep, or to drive me into the cities for clinic visits, or to schedule a Bloody Mary for Saturday morning. And she’s the one who got me into “Um pa pa” music when she invited me for a night out at the Legion to hear Jimmy and Jerry play, not to mention, she’s the one who taught me to two-step and even waltz. So, of course, it was no surprise when she asked me to the Faith Presbyterian polka service last Sunday. Needless to say, there wasn’t any room in the pew to two-step, but we managed to groove to the good ol’ polka tunes, courtesy of Jim’s Brewers. I’ve never seen a pew shake so much during church — not even from an extreme episode of the “church giggles.” My Grandma Alice is also a

Occasionally, I spend a couple days at my Grandma Alice’s farm to enjoy the quiet country life, indulge in her chewy, homemade molasses cookies, and to spend time with my brother, Nick, while he’s there. Grandma Alice is also willing to help me out wherever, whether it be researching migraine home remedies in her “doctor book,” lending me her Buick when I have vehicle trouble (haha), or concocting an olive oil/egg treatment for when I yearn for shiny hair. After supper on Saturday, she and I cleaned up the table and started on dishes when we got to talking about country western music. I told her Dad had introduced me to the classics when he’d sing “There’s a Tear in My Beer” while getting ready for work, or when I’d hear “Jambalaya, crawfish pie, on the bayou” from the garage. Naturally, she and I started in chorus with “Hey, Good Lookin’” and then continued right into Johnny Cash with “Folsom Prison Blues.” I’ve never really danced before while doing the dishes, so that was a first when grandma and I shuffled along to our own melodies. We had more room than in a pew at church, that’s for sure. And then she told me she loved “Achy Breaky Heart” by Billy Ray Cyrus, and immediately, I was brought back to the fourth-grade when my friend Elizabeth and I taped Billy Ray’s music video and learned the entire line dancing routine. Grandma suggested we take up a line dancing class, and so now I have to go get me a pair of cowboy boots and start kickin’. So yes, I am having quite the time coming back to my “roots” in Silver Lake, and I am so thankful I still have a few grandparents alive who are always teaching me the tricks of the trade — whether it’s that having a Bloody Mary with good friends is the ultimate way to end a work week or that a can of beer is the best treatment for dry hair. Here’s to all the mothers this special day — grandmothers, aunts, sisters. Happy Mother’s Day! May you all enjoy your special day! Maybe you want to have a spa day, and treat yourselves to a nice yolk/olive oil hair mask or a few dances at the local bar. You won’t regret it.

Letters to the Editor Plato tops in per capita donations, again
To the Editor: The totals of the March Challenge Drive among the towns in the county are now in and recorded by each town. The winner again this year is Plato with a total of 16.06 pounds of food per person. Silver Lake was second with 8.06 pounds per person and Lester Prairie with total of 5.33 pounds per person. Cash was figured as one pound of food per dollar, and the amount of food per person was according to the 2010 Census. The total for some of the towns could have been higher, but the donations were not brought in until after the absolute deadline. Although the grand total was less than last year, it still amounted to 99,865 pounds of food. This will supply food for 78,819 meals; in 2012, we supplied food for 354,426 meals! Everyone deserves a big thank you for all that you donated to make this drive a big success. Without everyone’s help, the food shelf would not be able to help all the many needy families of McLeod County that we do. The success of the March drive shows what a wonderful county we live in. Everyone’s help to feed the individuals in need is greatly appreciated. The tears and hugs of appreciation tell the whole story. It may have been one of your own family members that you helped and (you) never knew they needed help. Again, a big thank you to everyone.

But Cameron argued that a stance needs to start now, at the local level. “If you don’t make a stand here, where do you make a stand?” asked Cameron. “At your front door with no help?” Christensen said that he could see “nothing illegal” about the County Board supporting the resolution. “This is where it starts,” said Christensen. “You, the people, are the government.” Commissioner Sheldon Nies said he would support the resolution as a grassroots effort to curb federal government. “Every major thing that has happened in the United States has started at the grassroots,” said Nies. “The bottom line is, I strongly support grassroots efforts, and this is one of them.” After great discussion and hearing comments from many others in attendance, the County Board voted 3-2 to support the resolution. Christensen, Shimanski and Nies all voted in favor, while Terlinden and Wright cast the dissenting votes.

Offense heats up behind a stingy defense
By Josh Randt Sports Editor The Glencoe-Silver Lake baseball team has now won five straight games after losing 16-0 against Holy Family more than a week ago. The bats woke up and so has the Panther defense, allowing three or fewer runs in all five games while scoring 33 in the same span. The Panthers are 5-1 overall, and 3-0 in the West division of the Wright County Conference. against 28 batters while striking out 12, walking two, giving up six hits and only one earned run.

Petersen and Maass got things rolling on offense again in the first for GSL with Petersen reaching on a shortstop error, and Maass by way of a single to left. Another DC error put Lepel on first with the bases loaded and no outs. A Dunbar sacrifice fly scored Petersen on the next pitch, and Maass crossed the plate one batter later when Brandon Ebert hit a line-drive single to right field to put GSL up 2-0 in the first. A big fourth inning at the plate by Derek Bratsch all but sealed the deal for the Panthers. Bratsch hit a double to leftcenter to lead off the inning and scored two batters later on a passed ball. GSL made it all the way through the batting order in the fourth. During his second at-bat of the inning, Bratsch hit a single that mirrored his previous double, and drove in Dunbar and Ebert for an 8-0 lead. The Panthers won 8-3.

GSL 4, Belle Plaine 1
Down one run in the first inning with two outs, Ethan Maass took a suicide lead from third base and looked at Belle Plaine’s Gavin Dauwalter as if to say, “Come get me. I dare you.” While Dauwalter didn’t seem to be in a daring mood, Maass was. He stole home on the second pitch to Reed Dunbar, tying the game at 1-1. The Panthers fed off the senior’s gutsy move, and won the game 4-1 on April 30. Junior Josh Schmidt was having his way on the mound for GSL, despite a first-inning passed ball, which resulted in Cameron Klehr scoring the Tigers’ lone run. GSL went up 2-1 in the second, and 4-1 in the third after Dunbar batted in Maass and Colton Lueders with a single to shallow center. In 5-1/3 innings pitched,

Flying high on the track and in the field
By Josh Randt Sports Editor With the track out of commission at Steven’s Seminary Stadium, the nearest available venue for a home meet was in Belle Plaine. The boys earned a second place finish with 138.5 points, 51 points behind Willmar. The girls finished with 73.5 points and a fifth-place finish. Willmar won both the boys and girls events. Senior Ryan Kuester made his return in the 100-meter dash after being sidelined with an injury. Kuester won the event, edging out Willmar’s Chris Cunningham by five hundreths of a second with a 10.81. Greg Ober scored another 10 points for the boys with a 51.75 first place finish in the 400-meter dash. Brandon Richter scored points in the distance events, finishing third in the 800meter run (2:11.65) and 1600meter run (4:49.63), while Dalton Clouse shored things up in the hurdles. Clouse placed second in the 110-meter hurdles (16.28), and third in the 300-meter hurdles (44.67), producing 14 points in his two events. In the field, Tanner Konen continues to soar above his competition in the pole vault, taking first with an 11-6. Kelly Arnold found some competition in the 100-meter dash against Willmar’s Rose Jackson. Arnold came in second with 12.87, edged out by Jackson’s 12.17. Arnold would also take third in the 200-meter dash, with Shelby Clouse and Taylor Novak, also of GSL, right behind her, combining for 15 points in the event. The GSL girls snagged first in the 4x200-meter relay (1:51.3) and the 4x400 (4:15.19) for 20 more points. Clarissa Ober was the only girl from GSL to place in a field event with a third place, 32-5 shot put heave. *** Much of the same results came from Wright County Conference meet at Waconia. The boys took second, eight points behind CambridgeIsanti with a score of 122. The girls improved upon their previous fifth-place performance, taking fourth with 83 points. The 4x200-meter relay was dominated by the boys from GSL once again, posting 1:35.61 for a first-place finish. The Panther girls also gained a bulk of their points in the relay events, taking first in the 4x200-meter relay (1:52.95) on the legs of Arnold, Novak, Kelly Beneke and Clouse.

Boys are stuck in last place
By Josh Randt Sports Editor Despite shooting a 192 at the event in Annandale, a silver lining resides within the boys’ lastplace performance: Lou Iacona shot a 43 on the nine-hole course, the team’s best score. It’s promising considering that Iacona shot a 106 at an 18-hole event in New Ulm less than a week ago. Also promising was Tate Lilienthal’s 47, and Joe Fehrenbach’s 49. “Those two have been very consistent so far this year,” Koenen said of his number two and three golfers. “Consistency is huge in this sport, and those guys have been doing great so far.” Dylan Schuth and Patrick Fehrenbach shot 53 and 54, while Eric Steffel had a 66. *** Glencoe-Silver Lake came up short with another 196 last-place performance in Dassel-Cokato. Number two golfer Joe Fehrenbach shot a 46, the best round of the day for the Panthers, while Iacona and Lilienthal tied at 49. Patrick Fehrenbach continued his trend of shooting in the 50s with a 52. Schuth was right behind him with a 53, and Steffel behind him with a 59. *** The elder of the Fehrenbach boys continued his streak of earning the team’s best score at New London-Spicer on Thursday, May 2.
Girls have been playing together, and it shows
By Josh Randt Sports Editor Even with a second-to-last place finish at the Annandale scramble last week, the Panther girls’ golf team is starting to turn into a tight-knit group on the course. Ashlyn Ratike and Claire Wraspir shot a 48. Allie Eischens and Lizzy Gran were two strokes behind with a 50, while Lindsay Wedin and Jenna Lokensgard were two strokes behind them with a 52. *** Last week in Litchfield, Glencoe-Silver Lake tied for ninth with Delano, out of 11 teams, with a 217. What’s promising is that the girls’ individual scores are close to one another. Alexis Kerslake was the top Panther golfer, shooting a 52 and finishing the WCC meet in 20th place. Ratike shot a 54 and bounced back from a 64-stroke performance on the back nine at Hutchinson. Wraspir and Gran trailed closely behind with 55 and 56 stroke performances, respectively. Wedin turned in a 59 while Eischens shot a 66. *** GSL hosted its WCC meet on the cold and windy afternoon of May 2. The meet counted as two nine-hole events, and served as the first practice on the girls’ home course thus far. “We have gone from winter weather to our meet schedule without a practice on the golf course,” head coach Scott Eckhoff said. “Today should be our first practice on the golf course.” The Panthers took eighth place outright on the front nine with a 215, and tied for the same position with Mound on the back nine at 223. Kerslake turned in the top team score for both events with a 53 on the front and 52 on the back. Wraspir earned the secondbest scores on the day, finishing the front nine with 54 strokes, and the back with 56. Gran tied Kerslake on the front, but turned in a 60 on the latter half of the course. Ratike started out fine with a 55, but ran into trouble during the second event, shooting a 75. Wedin took 56 strokes to close out the first event while finishing up the back half with one more stroke at 57. Eischens had a less-than stellar performance shooting a 64 during the first event. She would come back and shoot a 58 to cap off her day. GSL is currently ranked seventh in the WCC out of 11 schools. Kerslake is the top-rated golfer for the team, ranked 29th in the conference.

Weather Corner
By Jake Yurek
I don’t really want to mention it, but it was unbelievable that Southeast Minnesota saw up to 18 inches of snow just last week! Thank goodness that mess decided to stay down there; we have seen our fair share of late season snow. This week started out fantastic — highs in the lower 70s was just what the doctor ordered. We’ll stay right around average as we move into mid to late week. A couple storm systems will enter the picture for the upper Midwest late week with the first passing through Wednesday, and the second late Friday into early Saturday. Rain and scattered thunder could be possible with each blast, but not everyone will see it, so we’ll have to see how things line up. Behind the Friday-Saturday frontal system, we will, unfortunately, cool down heading into the weekend, keeping highs only in the 50s Saturday. Sunday things improve slightly with highs in the lower 60s, maybe. The cool-down will be short-lived as we head into early next week as temperatures ramp back up with another chance of rain around Tuesday. My advice this week … get out and enjoy one of our six weeks of summer (just kidding, but it feels like that sometimes). Have a great week all! Ma dobry weekendem Mit dobry vikend Wednesday night — Lows 48-54; showers/thunder. Thursday — Highs 62-68; lows 40-46; early showers/mostly cloudy. Friday — Highs 62-68; lows 40-46; partly cloudy/night showers or thunder. Saturday — Highs 52-58; lows 33-39; early rain/clouds, breezy. Sunday — Highs 68-64; clear. Weather Quiz: How is the severe weather season shaping up? Answer to last week’s question: We’re moving in the right direction. Most of the state is still in some kind of a drought, but it loosened its grip a bit. Officially, we are still in a moderate drought with severe not too far away to our southwest. Southeast Minnesota is the only part of the state not in a drought category, as it has seen a lot of precipitation lately. Most of the others parts of the state are in a slight or abnormally dry drought. Remember: I make the forecast, not the weather!

Don’t plant crops in right of way
With planting season under way, the McLeod County Highway Department is asking landowners not to encroach on highway right of way when working the fields this spring. Highway right of way includes driving lanes, inside and outside shoulders, ditches, the clear zone and sigh corners at intersections. Utility poles and pedestals serve as good indicators of right-ofway limits because they are typically located at the outer edge of road right of way. Sight corners at an intersetion of two roads are especially susceptible to visual obstructions created by unlawfully planted crops, especially corn. Utility companies are permitted to use highway right of way to install gas lines, power lines, telephone lines, and fiber optic cable. Plowing and tilling can damage these lines under the ground and cause possible service interruptions. Plowing, tilling, and planting within highway right of way violates state law M.S. 160.2715. The violation is a misdemeanor punishable by a maximum $1,000 fine and/or 90 days in jail. The Highway Department plans to monitor the right of way and notify landowners of any violation. The notice may request the responsible person to remove the planted crop and re-establish the affected area with permanent, noncrop vegetation at their own expense. If the request is not met, the complaint will be turned over to the Sheriff’s Department for a potential misdemeanor ticket. The Highway Department may make any corrections necessary and assess costs to the responsible person. If the landowner is unsure of the right of way boundary, they are encouraged to contact 320-484-4321 for assistance.

Koepp enters Alford plea on 4 charges
Former Glencoe businessman Bryan Koepp entered an Alford plea of guilty on four felony theft charges in McLeod County District Court Friday. An Alford plea is one in which a defendant maintains his or her innocence but acknowledges that a reasonable jury could find them guilty based on evidence presented during a trial. Koepp entered the pleas in exchange for the prosecution dismissing four other felony charges. Koepp’s Alford pleas were to four felony counts of theft by false misrepresentation. The four dismissed charges were for felony theft by swindle. Judge Thomas McCarthy canceled a May 14 jury trial and ordered a pre-sentence investigation. Sentencing has been set for June 28 in McLeod County District Court. Koepp, 48, the former owner of the Glencoe Garden Center, had faced four felony counts of theft by false representation, and four felony counts of theft by swindle. The charges span a two-year time frame in which Koepp allegedly obtained over $388,500 from 15 separate victims.
