Local residents are urged to
not discharge lawn clippings
onto streets in the City of Ar-
Clippings that are dis-
charged onto city streets
eventually wash into the
storm sewers and cause them
to clog. Along with being an
inconvenience to residents,
clogged sewers are costly and
time consuming for the city
employees to clean and un-
City officials ask all resi-
dents to take their grass clip-
pings to the compost site. The
compost site is open seven

Sibley County is right on
the edge of having potential
state flood disaster funds be
washed away.
Tim Becker, Public Works
Director, told the board of
commissioners at the Tues-
day, June 10 meeting that his
department has been working
with MnDOT (Minnesota De-
partment of Transportation)
to obtain state aid disaster
funds as a result of flooding
May 31 and June 1.
The minimum damage
amount needs to be 10 per-
cent of state aid allotment
($306,203.60) to meet the
minimum requirements for
eligibility for a claim. Becker
said his project estimates are
just over the minimum at
The state needs to do a
project site visit before they
can approve the funds. Beck-
er presented a list of 12 dam-
aged areas along CR 6.
A couple of projects in-
volve a road shoulder
washout. There are several
areas with silt and tree debris
in the ditch. A large culvert is
plugged up.
“If we get state aid disaster
funds we probably will hire
contractors,” said Becker.
“We are already short of staff.
We had two new hires who
backed out the day prior to
starting because they got
more money somewhere

ley County Human Resource
Department continued to be

ST. PAUL — District 18
state Sen. Scott Newman, R-
Hutchinson, announced
Thursday, May 29, his plans
to run for Minnesota attorney
“I think it is time to have a
fresh new approach into the
activities of the attorney gen-
eral’s office instead of simply
relying on decades of imple-
menting the DFL game plan,”
said Newman. He stressed the
fact that there has not been a
Republican attorney general
since Doug Head was elected
in 1966.
Newman said incumbent
Attorney General Lori Swan-
son has continually sided
with her political party on
partisan issues like daycare
unionization and Obamacare.
Newman said Swanson
should have been siding with
her client, the state of Min-
“I am looking to change the
atmosphere and approach of
the attorney general’s office
to be one of enforcing our
laws and defending our state,
rather than protecting a par-
ticular party platform and fur-
thering its goals,” said New-

Arlington resident Christi-
na DeLeon, 20, was recently
sentenced to 48 months in the
Minnesota Correctional Fa-
cility in Shakopee.
DeLeon entered a guilty
plea to the charge of second
degree manslaughter and was
convicted by the court.
Charges of neglect or endan-
germent of a child, storing
methaphetamine and wrong-
fully obtaining assistance
were dismissed.
DeLeon will be given cred-
it for time served which was
149 days. She will serve 32
months in custody and 16
months on supervised release.
DeLeon was initially
charged after she left her
eight-month-old son unat-
tended in a bathtub to go and
care for her18-month-old son
last November, according to
court documents. Her eight-
month-old son, Elijah, died
due to drowning.
Later that same month,
DeLeon was charged after
she purchased seven cans of
baby formula with her WIC
vouchers at Jerry’s Home
Quality Foods in Arlington,
according to court docu-
ments. She later posted a
message on Facebook and at-
tempted to sell the baby for-
One month later, DeLeon
fled to Nevada where she was
arrested and taken into cus-
tody at the Clark County Jail
in late December. She was
later transported back to Sib-
ley County where she had
been held in jail.

There has been plenty
of road construction in
Arlington the past year
Our View: It may be an inconvenience,
but the results are well worth it
Letters To The Editor
There has been plenty of road construction in and around Arling-
ton during the past year.
The most recent is the Main Street (County Road 34) and Coun-
ty Road 17 Project which was completed this week. The roads
were in tough shape, but now Arlington has a new Main Street.
The low bid of nearly $340,000 from William Mueller & Sons,
Hamburg, came in about $100,000 under the engineer’s estimate.
A reconstruction project of County Road 166 leading out to the
Arlington Sportsmen’s Park will get underway next week. The
project will include the replacement of two bridges. In addition,
Sibley County will also build two new pedestrian bridges for the
Prairie Line Trail project in that same area. The low bid of
$1,472,336 from Structural Specialties, Hutchinson, was accepted
for the County Road 166 Bridge and 378th Avenue Bridge Project.
Furthermore, the low bid of $1,940,484 from Chard Tiling & Ex-
cavating, Belle Plaine, was accepted for the Prairie Line Trail Proj-
The road projects do not end there. The Arlington City Council
has budgeted $90,000 for seal coating streets in the community
later this summer. A major street and utility project is planned for
next year.
Flash back one year ago. A multi-million dollar resurfacing road
project, which included bridge and utility work, was completed
along Highway 5 from Gaylord to Arlington to Green Isle. It is a
shame that the project was not continued from Green Isle to High-
way 212.
In addition, there was the Safe Routes To School Project which
was completed in Arlington late last summer. The City of Arling-
ton was able to conduct this project thanks to a nearly $200,000
federal grant.
There has been a number of important road projects completed
in and around Arlington during the past year and additional en-
deavors are scheduled for later this year and beyond. The good
news is that most of these projects did not involve local tax dol-
Sure, these projects have caused and will cause some inconven-
ience to local residents and businesses, but the results are well
worth it. Small cities across the state would kill to have this many
road projects completed in their community and area.

To The Editor,
Last week I filed for the Sibley
County Commissioner Fifth District
seat being vacated by the Honorable
Harold Pettis. This seat includes the
cities of Winthrop and Gibbon and
Severance, Alfsborg, and Cornish
townships (the southwest part of the
Sibley County has five commis-
sioners divided geographically. All
five commissioners make decisions
at times impacting every citizen and
for years to come.
Putting it another way, even
though you cannot vote for me I will
be one of your five commissioners.
With that, allow me to tell you
where I stand on a couple of posi-
Two grave issues hang over Sib-
ley County like a guillotine: RS
Fiber (aka Fiber-to-the-Home) and
the Cornish Township industrial
wind turbines (near the Winthrop
golf course). While both projects
are getting killed by facts and sup-
port is almost non-existent, their
proponents won’t go away.
Last year your present commis-
sioners voted down RS Fiber saying,
“Enough is enough.” However, the
promoters plan to bring it back and
they recruited candidates to run here
and in another county commissioner
Rest assured I oppose both Fiber
and Wind. I have done my home-
work so I will not budge and I will
not waffle. And never ever will I
say one thing to the public only to
do the opposite. Ever.
Sibley County is blessed with a
rich fabric of color and culture of
honorable people. No matter one’s
heritage we all want the same: good
government, low taxes, and lots of
time with family and friends. Like
you, I cherish our country, our state,
and our neighbors. Everyday I ask
the True God for wisdom, discern-
ment, humbleness, contentment, and
Finally, please know you will
have another friend in Sibley Coun-
ty along with your commissioner.
Thank you for all you do to make
this a great place to live.
Mark Santelman
Sibley County has two grave issues
To The Editor,
The Board of Directors for RS
Fiber Cooperative strongly believes
that recent letters from Mark Santel-
man contain false, misleading, and
malicious claims about fiber broad-
band. RS Fiber’s goal is to bring af-
fordable, high speed, high quality
internet service to every business,
farmer, and home in Renville and
Sibley County whose elected offi-
cials voted to participate in this pri-
vate-public partnership.
Santelman opposes the RS Fiber
project. He makes claims that ap-
pear to be facts, but they are simply
his uninformed opinion. For exam-
ple, he claims that the RS Fiber
project is not good for our commu-
nity. Wrong. Connecting homes,
farms, and businesses together by
using fiber broadband is just as im-
portant today as connecting people
together with electricity and tele-
phone service was in the 1930s.
In the 1930s, the large providers
of electricity and telephones said it
was too expensive to provide these
services to rural Americans. In re-
sponse, rural cooperatives were
formed so we could have access to
affordable electricity and telephone
service for the 20th century. RS
Fiber Cooperative has been formed
so we can have access to affordable
internet service in the 21st century.
That’s a fact.
RS Fiber will NOT compete with
the local providers of high-speed,
affordable internet service. Why?
Because there is not a single
provider of internet service in
Renville and Sibley counties that
provides this service to every single
business, farm, and home today.
And these existing providers have
even stated that they have no plans
to bring fiber broadband services to
our communities.
He also makes a false claim that
RS Fiber has not gathered good pub-
lic support. Wrong. More than 100
community meetings have been held
throughout Renville and Sibley
County to answer questions from
taxpayers about fiber broadband.
During an 18-month period in 2011-
12, over 55 percent of residential
households returned a pledge card
indicating support and an interest in
receiving fiber broadband services.
In 2014, after number meetings and
presentations, elected officials from
10 communities and 17 townships
made informed, thoughtful decisions
to join the RS Fiber project. After
only three months, the latest pledge
card drive has already generated re-
sponses from over 18 percent of po-
tential customers. 1,189 pledge
cards have been returned and 1,185
people want at least one service…
and over 1,000 people want two or
more services. We consider this to
be good public support for RS Fiber.
Santelman also makes a mislead-
ing and malicious claim that the RS
Fiber Cooperative’s Board of Direc-
tors was happy that four out of 21
townships did not vote to join this
project. Wrong again. The Board
worked closely with every elected
official, every single taxpayer, and
in every single township to answer
their questions, provide information,
and invite them to become a mem-
ber of this project. Even though the
project construction costs will de-
cline modestly because of the ab-
sence of four townships, the Board
sincerely regrets their absence. In
fact, these four township decisions
occurred on a split vote, which
means that many people within the
township supported the project.
Even in the City of Arlington, the
RS Fiber project actually passed the
City Council on a 3-2 vote, only to
be vetoed by the mayor. RS Fiber’s
Board continues to hope that the
four townships and the cities of Ar-
lington and Henderson will eventu-
ally join the project, so their citizens
can also have access to affordable,
high-speed, quality internet service.
He also makes several uninformed
claims about the community bond
support, business model, funding
sources, and formation of RS Fiber
Cooperative. Seventy-five percent
of the proposed funding will come
from private lenders. One hundred
percent of the funding will be repaid
from the revenues and profits of RS
Fiber cooperative. Is there some
chance that the public funding could
become an obligation of the taxpay-
ers? Maybe. But only if people do
not use the fiber broadband service.
Since the monthly cost of the fiber
service will be lower than what peo-
ple currently pay for inferior servic-
es from existing providers, it is
highly unlikely that the RS Fiber
project will generate higher taxes.
Let’s summarize. Higher quality.
Faster speeds. Lower monthly
costs. And the worst case impact for
the taxpayer is that they might have
a slight increase in property taxes…
which is lower than what they save
from fiber broadband services.
Mr. Santelman, this is not a “lousy
business model” where…. “govern-
ment is going into private business
against honorable taxpaying compa-
RS Fiber is putting together a very
well-developed, closely analyzed
profitable business model that will
be reviewed by more than 20 banks,
several accounting firms, numerous
lawyers, and multiple government
agencies. And RS Fiber Coopera-
tive is also an honorable private
business that will pay taxes, while
making an investment in Renville
and Sibley County the large existing
providers refuse to make.
The RS Fiber Cooperative’s
Board of Directors is making in-
formed and thoughtful decisions,
based on extensive financial analy-
sis by very experienced firms who
are knowl-

As reported in the Arling-
ton Enterprise last week,
Stewart resident John Lipke
filed to run against Glenn
Gruenhagen, R-Glencoe, for
the Minnesota House of Rep-
resentatives seat in District
Lipke, who is a long-time
resident of Stewart, is run-
ning because he wants to
work hard and represent the
needs of the members of his
community. He hopes to
work with members of both
parties, and keep his door
open to all of his constituents
and listen to their concerns.
Lipke has worked as a con-
sultant in the areas of taxa-
tion, finance, accounting, and
insurance. He also has experi-
ence as a school bus driver,
Sunday school teacher, vol-
unteer fireman, and as a gov-
erning board member for Ed-
ucation Minnesota. Education
is a significant area of experi-
ence for him, and it will be
one of his top priorities.
Lipke looks forward to
talking with the people of
McLeod and Sibley counties
over the coming months.
Lipke will now seek the
DFL endorsement for the
House of Representatives in
House District 18B at an en-
dorsing convention to be held
at Lyle’s Cafe in Winthrop at
7 p.m. Monday, June 16.
The endorsing convention
will be chaired by Merle Lar-
son, chair of Senate District

tion are all delegates who
were elected to attend this
spring’s Sibley County Con-
vention as well as the dele-
gates to the McLeod County

From June 19 to early Au-
gust, traffic will be restricted
to two lanes, two-way in the
southbound lanes from St.
Peter to Roberts Creek and
two-way traffic in north-
bound from Roberts Creek to
north of the Cambria silo.
The traffic restrictions will
allow reconstruction on the
northbound lanes from Union
Street to north of Highway
22/Dodd Street in St. Peter,
permanent access to Treaty
Site, Highway 169/93 ramps,
and removal of the crossing
at Ritt Street.
August to early October all
traffic is shifted from south-
bound to northbound and dur-
ing the month of October
traffic will switch to one lane
on each northbound and
southbound from St. Peter to
Roberts Creek and two-way
traffic in northbound from
Roberts Creek to north of the
Cambria silo. A more de-
tailed project timeline can be
found at www.dot.state.mn-
The project includes rais-
ing the grade and reconstruct-
ing two miles in flood prone
areas so that the southbound
lanes remain above a 100-
year flood and can carry traf-
fic during high water. It also
includes resurfacing nine
miles of southbound High-
way 169 for a smoother ride
and access revisions in St.
Peter for improved safety.
The Highway 169 project is
being built in coordination
with St. Peter’s project on
Old Minnesota Avenue.
Hoffman Construction,
Black River Falls, Wisconsin
is the contractor on the
$10,681,882 project.

tional bridge will be installed
on Highway 22 at the south
edge of St. Peter to handle
additional water flow during
floods. In 2016 a project to
raise the flood-prone areas on
Highway 169 between
Mankato and St. Peter will
also include adding cable me-
dian barriers and resurfacing.

the Minnesota State Class A
Girls Track and Field Meet at
Hamline on Saturday, June 7.
Eckberg, who qualified for
the finals with a time of
15. 65 seconds on Friday,
June 6, placed seventh with a

“Megan had a great start
out of the blocks both days,
but she was up against a tal-
ented field again this year,”
said Sibley East head coach
Jill Warzecha. “In fact, her
time this year was slightly
faster than last year and she
took fourth last year and sev-
enth this year.”
Senior Jaelin Beachy, Sta-
ples-Motley, won the event
for the third consecutive year
with a clocking of 14.90 sec-
“Megan has proven time
and time again that she can
compete at this level and her
experience benefited her in
her last high school hurdles
race,” Warzecha said. “We
will miss working with
Megan, but look forward to
watching her continue her
success at Gustavus next

Minnesota, Wisconsin
and Michigan share many
of the same boaters and an-
glers – now they’re sharing
the same message to help
protect their waters from
aquatic invasive species
(AIS), according to the
Minnesota Department of
Natural Resources (DNR).
The states are teaming up
on a new public service
campaign to help carry a
consistent message that en-
courages boaters and an-
glers to take steps to avoid
accidentally spreading
zebra mussels, spiny water
fleas and other aquatic in-
vaders when they travel be-
tween states, according to
the DNR.
“The Minnesota DNR
welcomes every opportuni-
ty to work with other states
on AIS prevention meas-
ures,” said Commissioner
Tom Landwehr, “and this
multi-state production is a
fitting example. It offers a
consistent message and a
coordinated approach to ef-
fectively address the tough
issue of AIS.”
The Great Lakes states
are working together to
meet the challenges of in-
vasive species, which are
non-native species that can
cause environmental or
economic harm, or harm to
human health, according to
the DNR.
“We share a common
goal of stopping aquatic
hitchhikers to keep our
Great Lakes and our inland
waters healthy,” said Cathy
Stepp, Wisconsin Depart-
ment of Natural Resources
secretary. “By pooling our
resources we can help reach
more people with an impor-
tant reminder as they travel
back and forth.”
In addition to YouTube,
the spot is airing on out-
door programs, public tele-
vision, fishing and sports
channels across the three-
state area, according to the
Michigan Department of
Environmental Quality Di-
rector Dan Wyant invites
partner organizations and
individuals to share the
video to spread awareness.
“By taking a few minutes
to drain water and clean
boats, trailers, and other
equipment we can help
keep all of our Great Lakes
healthy and protect inland

Midwest boaters encouraged to
prevent the spread of aquatic
invasive species across borders
Governor Mark Dayton has
proclaimed June 8-15 as all-
terrain vehicle (ATV) safety
week in Minnesota.
More than 600,000 ATVs are
used in Minnesota by men,
women and children for out-
door recreation and to support
their daily livelihood. State law
requires anyone born after July
1, 1987, to have a certificate
showing they have taken safety
training if they are 11 or older
and want to ride on public
land, trails, and frozen waters.
The course also is available for
In the last 5 years, 83 Min-
nesotans have lost their lives in
ATV accidents.
“People who have taken
ATV safety training are in-
volved in fewer accidents com-
pared to folks who haven’t had
the training, said Lt. Leland
Owens, recreational vehicle co-
ordinator, Minnesota Depart-
ment of Natural Resources En-
forcement Division. “That’s
why we encourage ATV safety
training for all ages.”
The DNR promotes safety
when operating an ATV:
• Always wear protective
gear, (helmet, eye protection,
long sleeve shirt, gloves, long
pants, boots).
• Slow down. Speed is a
major contributing factor in
most ATV injury and fatal acci-
• If driving/riding in a side-
by-side ATV, buckle up, and
keep all body parts inside the
side- by-side.
• Be sober. Run an ATV
under the influence of alcohol
or narcotics and you could be
charged with a misdemeanor,
gross misdemeanor, or felony
level DWI.
• ATVs are not babysitters,
parents need to make sure their
kids take an ATV safety educa-
tion course and supervise them
• Don’t take riding ATVs
lightly. Think safety when rid-
ing ATVs.

Last Day to Submit Comments: July 7, 2014
Description of Permitted Facility:
Five Star Dairy - Site is located at the SW ¼ of Section 24, Dryden Township, Sibley County, Min-
Five Star Dairy LLC (Permittee) has applied for a National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System
(NPDES)/State Disposal System (SDS) Permit to expand and operate an existing feedlot located in the
SW ¼ of Section 24, Dryden Township, Sibley County, Minnesota (Facility). The Facility currently
has coverage under a NPDES/SDS permit that authorizes the Permittee to house, in total confinement
barns, 1,350 head (1,890 animal units (AU)) of mature dairy cows over 1,000 pounds, and 50 head
(50 AU) of mature dairy cows under 1,000 pounds. Manure and process wastewater produced at the
facility is stored within earthen lined liquid manure storage areas (LMSA) prior to land application to
surrounding cropland. The Facility is currently permitted to house a total of 1,940 AU.
The Permittee is proposing to construct a feed storage area to store more than 1,000 tons of sweet
corn silage as feedstock for the animals at the Facility. In conjunction, the Permittee is proposing to
construct an additional earthen lined LMSA for storage of leachate and precipitation generated runoff
from the existing and proposed feed storage areas. Finally, the Permittee is proposing to construct a
permanent manure stockpile site with runoff directed to the proposed LMSA. No increase in animal
number or animal units is proposed. The final capacity of the Facility will remain unchanged at 1,940
The MPCA has tentatively decided to issue the NPDES/SDS Permit, described above, for a term of
approximately five years. A draft permit is available for review at the address listed below.

Following recent rains
across the state, the Minneso-
ta Department of Natural Re-
sources urges boaters, pad-
dlers and swimmers to not let
their guard down. Lake, river
and stream water levels are
high and moving fast.
“People should always
wear their life jackets every
time they step on a boat and
especially during times of
high water,” said Kara
Owens, DNR boating safety
A no-wake zone is current-
ly in effect on the St. Croix
River from Taylors Falls to
Prescott. The Minneapolis
locks on the Mississippi
River are closed to recre-
ational traffic. High water has
been declared on Lake Min-
“High water levels mean a
fast and strong moving cur-
rent, which many boat opera-
tors and swimmers are not
used to, and that can create
dangerous situations,” Owens
The swift current also
makes it more difficult for
even an experienced swim-
mer to swim or stay afloat if
their boat or canoe capsized.
Boaters should also be
aware with high water more
debris is in the water.
“Debris will often float just
at or below the surface. Hit-
ting a log at high speed could
result in anything from a bro-
ken propeller to a ruined
lower unit — or worse, seri-
ous injuries to those who
wanted to enjoy a day on the
water,” said Owens.
So far this year, one person
has died in a boating accident
and six people have drowned
in Minnesota.
Owens said 10 lives could
be saved in Minnesota each
year if people just wore their
life jackets.
The DNR recommends
these safety tips for boaters:
• Wear a U.S. Coast Guard-
approved life jacket.
• Do not overload the boat.
• If boat capsizes, try to re-
board or stay with it until res-
cuers arrive.
• Go boating with a friend.
Boating safety increases with
• Tell someone the boating
destination and planned re-
turn time.

Rivers and lakes: high and moving fast
The Minnesota Department
of Natural Resources is re-
minding people that turtles
crossing roads now are often
moving to familiar nesting lo-
Allowing turtles to cross
the roads is vital to the
preservation of regional pop-
“Many turtles and other
species are killed on Min-
nesota roads each year, espe-
cially during the nesting sea-
son,” said Carol Hall, DNR
herpetologist, “In fact, road-
way mortality is believed to
be a major factor in turtle
population declines through-
out the United States.”
In Minnesota, where all
turtles are mainly aquatic,
overland journeys usually
occur: in connection with
seasonal movements between
different wetland habitats;
during the annual early sum-
mer nesting migration of egg
laden females; or when newly
hatched youngsters seek out
the backwaters and ponds for
their permanent home. Tur-
tles can travel many miles
during a single year, and may
even be found far from water.
Giving Turtles A Hand
The following points
should be remembered:
• Think safety. Simply
pulling off the road and turn-
ing on hazard lights may alert
other drivers to slow down.
Be aware of surroundings and
• Avoid excessive handling.
While wanting to inspect tur-
tles closely is understandable,
excessive handling can dis-
rupt normal behavior. Pro-
longed examination of turtles
should therefore be limited to
only one or two individuals
of each species.
• Allow unassisted road
crossings. When turtles can
safely cross roads unaided
due to a lack of oncoming
traffic, allow them to do so.
Observe from a distance and
avoid rapid movements, as
doing otherwise will often
cause turtles to change direc-
tion, stop, or seek shelter
within their shells.
• Handle turtles gently. If
necessary to pick them up, all
turtles except Snappers and
Softshells (“leatherbacks” –
see link below for more infor-
mation on these species that
may bite when picked up)
should be grasped gently
along the shell edge near the
mid-point of the body. Be ad-
vised that many turtles empty
their bladder when lifted off
the ground, so be careful not
to drop them if they should
suddenly expel water.
• Maintain direction of
travel. Always move turtles in
the same direction they were
traveling in when encoun-
tered. Turtles should always
be moved across roadways in
as direct a line as possible. It
may seem helpful to “assist”
the turtle in its journey by
moving them to a nearby wa-
terbody, but it is important to
remember the phrase, “If you
care, leave it there.”
Transportation and parks
departments can help turtles
by not mowing ditches during
peak nesting season (typically
late May to early July in Min-
nesota), as many turtles like
to nest on the elevated road-
way shoulders. If mowing is
absolutely necessary, an 8-
inch deck-height is recom-

USDA Announces
Changes To Fruit,
Vegetable And Wild
Rice Planting Rules
Farm Service Agency
(FSA) has announced fruit,
vegetable and wild rice provi-
sions that affect producers
who intend to participate in
certain programs authorized
by the Agricultural Act of
Producers who intend to
participate in the Agriculture
Risk Coverage (ARC) or
Price Loss Coverage (PLC)
programs are subject to an
acre-for-acre payment reduc-
tion when fruits and nuts, veg-
etables or wild rice are plant-
ed on the payment acres of a
farm. Payment reductions do
not apply to mung beans, dry
peas, lentils or chickpeas.
Planting fruits, vegetables or
wild rice on acres that are not
considered payment acres will
not result in a payment reduc-
tion. Farms that are eligible
to participate in ARC/PLC but
are not enrolled for a particu-
lar year may plant unlimited
fruits, vegetables and wild
rice for that year but will not
receive ARC/PLC payments
for that year. Eligibility for
succeeding years is not affect-
Planting and harvesting
fruits, vegetables and wild
rice on ARC/PLC acreage is
subject to the acre-for-acre
payment reduction when
those crops are planted on ei-
ther more than 15 percent of
the base acres of a farm en-
rolled in ARC using the coun-
ty coverage or PLC, or more
than 35 percent of the base
acres of a farm enrolled in
ARC using the individual
Fruits, vegetables and wild
rice that are planted in a dou-
ble-cropping practice will not
cause a payment reduction if
the farm is in a double-crop-
ping region as designated by
the USDA’s Commodity
Credit Corporation.

There are a variety of in-
sects that are active now and
could be in your garden.
When you are inspecting
your garden for pests, keep
an eye out for these insects.
Flea beetles are very small,
1/16th - 1/8th inch long. They
are usually dark colored al-
though some can have red or
yellow on them. An easy way
to identify flea beetles is that
they can jump. Flea beetles
attack a variety of vegetables,
including beans, broccoli,
cabbage, potatoes, squash,
and radish. Flea beetles chew
shallow pits and small holes
into leaves. This feeding can
be particularly damaging to
seedlings and cole crops.
Colorado potato beetles
overwinter as adults and start
to lay eggs in the spring. The
adults are broadly oval in
shape with yellowish to
cream colored wing covers
with ten thin black stripes.
The larvae are pinkish with a
humpbacked larva body. Both
the adults and larvae feed on
the leaves of not only pota-
toes but also eggplant, toma-
to, pepper, and similar plants.
Potato tubers can be adverse-
ly affected when defoliation
is severe. Also watch for
four-lined plant bugs. They
overwinter as eggs and
emerge in the spring as small
bright red immature insects
(nymphs) with black wing
pads. They eventually turn
into yellow green insects with
four black stripes. Four-lined
plant bugs use their piercing -
sucking mouthparts to feed
on the foliage of a wide vari-
ety of plants including peren-
nials. Their feeding causes a
series of small, dark, shallow
pits on the leaves. Fortunate-
ly, this feeding normally does
not kill the plant although it
can affect its appearance.

Even though harvest season
is months away, the Minneso-
ta Corn Growers Association
(MCGA) is encouraging
farmers to plan ahead for their
propane needs.
Last winter, farmers and
homeowners were hit hard by
a propane shortage caused by
several factors, including sub-
zero temperatures, record
propane exports and the clos-
ing of the Cochin pipeline.
MCGA staff have been meet-
ing with industry representa-
tives and state agencies who
are working on strategies to
try and prevent a similar
shortage this winter.
“It’s absolutely essential
that farmers plan ahead for
their propane needs,” said
MCGA President Ryan Buck.
“There’s a good chance that
the days of having propane
delivered as you need it dur-
ing harvest – something farm-
ers had been used to before
last year – are over for the
foreseeable future.”
Corn farmers use propane
to operate grain dryers that
dry the harvested kernels. If
the corn crop comes in wet, it
must be dried for storage to
prevent rot. If a farmer
doesn’t have access to
propane to run the dryer, har-
vesting is slowed or stops al-
“Farmers need to be ready
for another shortage and plan
accordingly, especially if
we’re hit with another wet fall
and colder-than-normal win-
ter,” Buck said. “As best you
can, address your anticipated
propane needs for the fall har-
vest right now. I know that’s
difficult since we have no idea
how wet this year’s crop will
be, but we need to be thinking
about it.”
Farmers needed more
propane than usual for drying
last year because the corn
crop was wetter than normal,
something that happens about
once every five years. But
reasons for the shortage ex-
tended well beyond a wet
corn crop.
The Cochin pipeline had
supplied 36 percent of Min-
nesota’s propane, but was out
of service for several weeks
last winter and now carries oil
from Canada’s tar sands in-
stead of propane.
Because of this, rail de-
mand for propane delivery has
also spiked dramatically.
Some estimates have the num-
ber of rail cars necessary to
meet Minnesota’s propane
needs rising from 200 to
4,200 per year after the re-
routing of the Cochin
pipeline. Bad winter weather
significantly slows down rail
Additionally, more propane
is being exported to other
countries than ever before.
MCGA encourages corn farmers
to plan ahead for propane needs

City of Green Isle
2013 Drinking Water Report
The City of Green Isle is issuing the results of monitoring done on its drinking water for the period from
January 1 to December 31, 2013. The purpose of this report is to advance consumers’ understanding of
drinking water and heighten awareness of the need to protect precious water resources.
Source of Water
The City of Green Isle provides drinking water to its residents from a groundwater source: a 832-foot-deep
well that draws water from the Mt. Simon aquifer.
The Minnesota Department of Health has determined that the source(s) used to supply your drinking water
is not particularly susceptible to contamination. If you wish to obtain the entire source water assessment
regarding your drinking water, please call 651-201-4700 or 1-800-818-9318 (and press 5) during normal
business hours. Also, you can view it on line at www.health.state.mn.us/divs/eh/water/swp/swa.
Call 507-326-3901 if you have questions about the City of Green Isle drinking water or would like informa-
tion about opportunities for public participation in decisions that may affect the quality of the water.
Results of Monitoring
No contaminants were detected at levels that violated federal drinking water standards. However, some con-
taminants were detected in trace amounts that were below legal limits. The table that follows shows the
contaminants that were detected in trace amounts last year. (Some contaminants are sampled less fre-
quently than once a year; as a result, not all contaminants were sampled for in 2013. If any of these con-
taminants were detected the last time they were sampled for, they are included in the table along with the
date that the detection occurred.)
Key to abbreviations:
MCLG – Maximum Contaminant Level Goal: The level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there
is no known or expected risk to health. MCLGs allow for a margin of safety.
MCL – Maximum Contaminant Level: The highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water.
MCLs are set as close to the MCLGs as feasible using the best available treatment technology.
MRDL – Maximum Residual Disinfectant Level.
MRDLG – Maximum Residual Disinfectant Level Goal.
AL – Action Level: The concentration of a contaminant which, if exceeded, triggers treatment or other re-
quirement which a water system must follow.
Percentile Level – This is the value obtained after disregarding 10 percent of the samples taken that had
the highest levels. (For example, in a situation in which 10 samples were taken, the 90
percentile level is
determined by disregarding the highest result, which represents 10 percent of the samples.) Note: In situa-
tions in which only 5 samples are taken, the average of the two with the highest levels is taken to determine
the 90
percentile level.
pCi/l – PicoCuries per liter (a measure of radioactivity).
ppm – Parts per million, which can also be expressed as milligrams per liter (mg/l).
ppb – Parts per billion, which can also be expressed as micrograms per liter ( g/l).
nd – No Detection.
N/A – Not Applicable (does not apply).
*This is the value used to determine compliance with federal standards. It sometimes is the highest value
detected and sometimes is an average of all the detected values. If it is an average, it may contain sampling
results from the previous year.
****Highest and Lowest Monthly Average.
*****Highest Quarterly Average.
If present, elevated levels of lead can cause serious health problems, especially for pregnant women and young
children. Lead in drinking water is primarily from materials and components associated with service lines and
home plumbing. City of Green Isle is responsible for providing high quality drinking water, but cannot control the
variety of materials used in plumbing components. When your water has been sitting for several hours, you can
minimize the potential for lead exposure by flushing your tap for 30 seconds to 2 minutes before using water for
drinking or cooking. If you are concerned about lead in your water, you may wish to have your water tested. In-
formation on lead in drinking water, testing methods, and steps you can take to minimize exposure is available
from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline or at http://www.epa.gov/safewater/lead.
Monitoring may have been done for additional contaminants that do not have MCLs established for them and are
not required to be monitored under the Safe Drinking Water Act. Results may be available by calling 651-201-
4700 or 1-800-818-9318 during normal business hours.
Compliance with National Primary Drinking Water Regulations
The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reser-
voirs, springs, and wells. As water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves nat-
urally occurring minerals and, in some cases, radioactive material, and can pick up substances resulting from
the presence of animals or from human activity.
Contaminants that may be present in source water include:
Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, sep-
tic systems, agricultural livestock operations, and wildlife.
Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally occurring or result from urban
stormwater runoff, industrial or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining, or farm-
Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban stormwater
runoff, and residential uses.
Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are by products
of industrial processes and petroleum production, and can also come from gas stations, urban stormwater
runoff, and septic systems.
Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and
mining activities.
In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, the U. S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) prescribes
regulations which limit the amount of certain contaminants in water provided by public water systems. Food
and Drug Administration regulations establish limits for contaminants in bottled water which must provide the
same protection for public health.
Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some
contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that water poses a health risk.
More information about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Environmental
Protection Agency’s Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1-800-426-4791.
Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Im-
muno-compromised persons such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have
undergone organ transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly, and
infants can be particularly at risk from infections. These people should seek advice about drinking water
from their health care providers. EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection
by Cryptosporidium and other microbial contaminants are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline
at 1 800-426-4791.
