Council on offensive over assessments
By Rich Glennie Editor In the process of authorizing preparation of plans and specifications for the 2013 street improvement project, Glencoe City Council also went on the offensive against critics Monday night — including former council member Gary Ballard, who wrote a recent letter to the editor that drew the ire of city officials. Ballard also raised questions at the June 3 public hearing about the $2.3 million project, and he questioned why the city is suddenly assessing a portion of the work to property owners rather than paying 100 percent of it. At the hearing, Ballard claimed the city had not specially assessed street projects in his 50 years in Glencoe. He accused the City Council of setting a precedent with its assessments. But City Council members refuted those accusations at Monday night’s meeting. With Mayor Randy Wilson absent, Acting Mayor John Schrupp conducted the meeting. Council member Dan Perschau questioned the city’s consulting engineer about Ballard’s statement that the city taxpayers should fund the street work 100 percent, instead of assessing a portion to property owners directly affected by the improvements. John Rodeberg, city engineering consultant with Short Elliott Hendrickson (SEH), said most cities cannot set aside enough money for streets, like Ballard suggested, mainly because of budget cuts due to decreases in local and federal government aid to cities. “This (city) assessment policy is nothing new,” Rodeberg said. He said assessments have been done in Glencoe since at least the 1990s. Council member Gary Ziemer also said Ballard’s information in his letter to the editor “is incorrect.” City Administrator Mark Larson said city assessments date back to 1955, according to city records. He said the last major city project was the NorthCountry Estates 6th Addition in the northwest corner of the city in 2004. All the utilities were assessed back to the developer

Development activities called ‘robust’ in Glencoe
By Rich Glennie Editor Before it went into closed session Monday night to discuss a purchase agreement for the former Mark’s Economart property, Glencoe City Council heard from David Nelson, the new president of the Glencoe Area Chamber of Commerce. Nelson, who contracts time with the city for its economic development matters, gave his David Nelson first quarterly report on his efforts. Hired April 1, Nelson said he also acts as the facilitator for the chamber’s Economic Development Committee (EDC). He called the number of inquiries about Glencoe and the number of leads as “robust” with four potential projects in the works, including the former Economart building the city purchased from Security Bank & Trust last year. Since becoming chamber president, Nelson said he has had inquiries about an 8,000-square-foot construction company branch office; a trucking/transportation firm relocation for a 5,000 to 10,000quare foot facility; the 21,000square-foot Economart building renovation; a business expansion on a two-acre open lot; and a business seeking an electrical upgrade to 1,000 amps in the industrial park. Nelson also said he has paid visits
Domestic abuse: ‘Impacts everyone’
By Lori Copler Staff Writer n its 20-year history, the McLeod Alliance for Victims of Domestic Violence has served over 3,700 clients, a statistic that may be startling to some in McLeod County. But staff members at the alliance feel there is more to be done, more people to reach. Statistics estimate one in four women has been abused. And that doen’t include other victims, which also can be men and children. Rhonda Buerkle, a part-time alliance staff worker (who also is an employee of McLeod County Public Health), said that 162 new clients were served in 2012, and a total of 265, including ongoing and secondary clients, were served that year. “Unfortunately, abuse is still happening,” said Glynnis Vacek, who has worked for the alliance since 1998 and been its advocacy coordinator since 2001. “Fortunately, more and more people are becoming aware that help is available.” Still, the alliance wants to continue to spread the word that help is available, and will take part in the “Clothesline Project,” which started in 1992, and is a nationwide art project in which families or volunteer artists create decorated Tshirts honoring their loved ones who lost their lives to domestic violence. Minnesota’s statewide project will be exhibited Monday, June 24, at Hutchinson’s Music in The Park in Library Square. Jill Barrall, another advocate with the alliance, said that T-shirts honoring Minnesota women who died from domestic violence in 2012 will be displayed on a clothesline at the park. Also on display will be T-shirts honoring four area women who died of domestic violence since 2000. They include Laura Vasquez Ruelas

The McLeod Alliance for Victims of Domestic Violence will host “Music in the Park” Monday, June 24, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., at Library Square in Hutchinson. The alliance also will be host to the “Clothesline Project” that evening, in which T-shirts with tributes to victims of domestic violence will be on display on “clotheslines,” bringing awareness to domestic violence. Above, the
alliance’s four permanent staffers, Nora Young, Jill Barrall, Rhonda Buerkle and Glynnis Vacek, display one of the T-shirts, which is a tribute in memory of Laura Vasquez Ruelas of Lester Prairie, who was slain in 2001.

Beep Baseball coming to Glencoe Days lineup
By Rich Glennie Editor The all-American pastime — baseball — will come to Vollmer Field this weekend. That is no surprise, since the Glencoe Brewers will be hosting the Plato Blue Jays in the traditional Glencoe Days game at 7 p.m., Friday. But Saturday, at 6 p.m., the game will be played a little differently. It will be played without eyesight. The newest addition to the Glencoe Days events lineup will be “Beep Baseball,” sponsored by the Glencoe Lions Club. It pits Minnesota’s national Beep Baseball team, the Minnesota Millers, based in Rochester and the Twin Cities, against a lineup of local players, who will play wearing blindfolds to even the playing field. And the traditional rules of baseball are thrown out the window. According to Gary Koch, Glencoe Lions president, Beep Baseball involves 10 players per team, six of whom must be legally blind or visually impaired. Four others can be sighted, including the pitcher and catcher. There are two bases — first and third — and the pitcher and catcher are on the same team as the hitters. The batted ball must go at least 40 feet to count. Now the tough part, once hit, the defensive players and the batter need to listen closely. The ball has a beeper inside that the fielders need to find by listening. The runner, meanwhile, needs to find the base, which also has a beeper installed. The first to the ball or the base either records an out, or earns a run. Six “blind” players play defense in the outfield, playing in zones. Two of the outfielders are sighted “spotters” who yell out which zone the batted ball landed. The baseball is the size of a softball. The pitcher tosses it underhand shouting to the blind batter “ready” when he draws back his arm, and “pitch” when he releases it. The batter, once hitting the ball, runs to either first or third base. A game is six innings long. ***** So, who is playing against the Minnesota Millers, the national Beep Baseball team from the state? The Millers play nationally, and will be at the Beep Ball World Series appearance set for Georgia in the near future. Facing the Millers Saturday night will be a team made up of local talent: Mayor Randy Wilson and wife, Kay, GSL’s activities director; GSL Superintendent Chris Sonju; Glencoe Police Chief Jim Raiter; McLeod County Sheriff Scott Rehmann; GSL baseball coach Dean Schwirtz; firefighters John VanDuynhoven and Corey Scheidt, Greg Copas, a former City Council member; Glenn Koch, Scott Waibel, a paramedic, attorney Mike Long, Cindy Colbrunn, assistant manager at Kestral Apartments and Brewers player Eric Paggen. Umpires for the event will be Ryan Voss of Voss Construction, Karin Ramige Cornwell of McLeod Publishing and Matt Harwell of Good

Sandbox filling set June 22
The Glencoe Boys Scout Troop 352 will be doing a sandbox filling service from 8 a.m. to noon, Saturday, June 22, within the city limits of Glencoe. It was suggested a $5 donation for each wheelbarrow full of sand, said Kevin Dietz, Troop 352 scoutmaster. Those interested in the sandbox fill service can contact Ken Peterson at 952807-1758 by Friday evening, June 21, with your name, address and phone number.
Continued from page 1 to the major employers in the community, like Miller Manufacturing, Starkey Labs, Seneca Foods, TC&W Railroad and Midwest Porcine. Another project in the works is the lodging study for a potential hotel in Glencoe. Nelson said that study began in May, and a preliminary report is expected soon. Another potential project deals with the Meridian subdivision on the west end of the community. A plan was presented earlier that would convert the subdivision into affordable housing. Also, Nelson said a possible housing study would cost about $12,000 to $15,000. The last housing study was done in 1997. But Nelson added that funding for a study has not been budgeted for 2013. There is an evolution occurring with the 112 retail businesses in Glencoe, Nelson said. Two businesses, Duebers and Pam’s Hallmark are closing; LMI Home Medical is changing its hours; Edina Realty opened in the Fahey Sales building; and HomeTown Landscaping and Precrete consolidated at one new site. He said he “has heard whispers” about the biggest vacant building in Glencoe, the Bosch/Telex facility. While the whispers indicated there has been “a transaction,” Nelson said he has not been able to verify that with his contacts. Other activities include grant writing, Nelson, including a $2,600 grant received to get the Glencoe City Center on the National Historic Registry, and work continues on a possible grant to repair the north exterior of the former Henry Hill school building. “I’m very impressed,” said council member Kevin Dietz of Nelson’s activities. “There is a lot of activity. That’s exciting to see.” Dietz also noted that he’d like to see “you’re not forgetting the people we already have,” of existing businesses.

Field house fees to increase
By Rich Glennie Editor For the first time since 2005, the Panther Field House memberships will increase effective July 1. At the June 10 GlencoeSilver Lake School Board meeting, approval was given to a fee increase of $5 a month or $60 a year for family membership. That fee will increase to $420 a year from $360. The fee will not increase for members currently under contract. The rate hike will begin at the time of renewal. The change also will add a six-month family rate of $40 a month or $260 a year; and a single-membership rate of $30 a month or $180 a year beginning July 1. Currently, the Panther Field House has 1,039 members (single, family and student) and 247 of the memberships are family memberships. The fee hike was requested by the Panther Field House advisory board. Sonju said the additional revenues will be used to upgrade field house equipment.
We have what you need.

More state education funding may not mean more for GSL
By Rich Glennie Editor While the 2013 Minnesota Legislature may have approved more funding for school districts, that may not mean more money for Glencoe-Silver Lake. During last week’s Glencoe-Silver Lake School Board meeting, Michelle Sander, district business manager, tried to sort out what was in the recent Omnibus E12 Education Act passed by the Legislature and how it will impact GSL. Sander prefaced her remarks saying there are some questions, “but not a lot of answers” about the legislation that earmarked an additional $485 million in education funding for the biennium fiscal years (FY) 2014-15. She said $238 million of that is in the form of a 1.5 percent basic formula increase in FY 2014 and another 1.5 percent increase in FY 2015. All-day kindergarten in FY 2015 amounts to $134 million in new funding, while another $40 million has been earmarked for early childhood learning scholarships for those living below the poverty level. Pupil accounting changes also are in the bill. It sets minimum instructional days at 165 for grades 1-11, but Sander said GSL already exceeds that. The bill also simplifies pupil formulas from six categories to two. Preschool through grade 6 will be counted as one unit in the aid formula. But all other students will count as 1.2 units. The end result, Sander said, is there is no additional revenues coming to GSL in FY 2015 despite what legislators say. When asked about the repayment of “shifted money to school districts,” from recent legislative session, Sander said the state aid formula might get back to the 90/10 percent formula of the past, but she did not predict repayment of those shifted funds any time soon. ***** Sander also updated the School Board on several facility projects this summer. Once work begins on the Early Childhood Family Education/Early Childhood Special Education (ECFE/ECSE) addition to Lincoln Jr. High, the board room at Lincoln may be off limits. The School Board meetings will be shifted back to the high school media center possibly beginning in July. Room 124, the current board room at Lincoln, will be used temporarily by ECFE/ECSE as the addition is being constructed. Sander also said work will begin this summer for replacing carpets in four Lakeside classrooms. The high school garage project started by the industrial technology class this school year, will be completed by a contractor. Asphalt will be placed on the east side of the high school near the garage. The area west of Stevens Seminary Stadium, where a dirt pile was located for several years, was leveled off last fall and will receive a layer of topsoil and be seeded. The area will eventually be used for practice fields, Sander said. The field also is located so as not to interfere with a future extension of Pryor Avenue north past the stadium. The cost of the work is estimated at $30,000, and Sander said the Panther Association will donate that $30,000 for the work. Sander said the field will be a great addition to the activities complex. As to the outdoor track, Sander said it could cost about $120,000 to resurface that track that took a beating last winter. The surface and base separated in parts of the oval track. She said the life span of an outdoor track is about 10 years, and GSL’s track is 14 years old. Because of the deteriorated condition, the track was not used this spring for home track meets. Also the tennis courts north of the high school, which have been cracking for years, will need to be tiled to get rid of the subsurface water around the courts that are causing the cracking. “It didn’t survive the spring very well,” Sander said of the courts.

Shepherd Lutheran Church. Koch said the game is free, but a goodwill offering will be accepted to help defray the travel expenses of the Minnesota Millers. Checks can be made out to the Glencoe Lions, he said. Also, three signed Minnesota Twins baseball will be given away during the game. After the game, for a $5 donation, fans in the stands can try to hit the Beep Ball and run the bases in blindfolds. Some of the money raised will go to local Lions projects as well. ***** Koch said he found out about the Minnesota Millers while at a Lions convention in Rochester, and he met some of the players. He invited them to play during Glencoe Days and earn some money for their trip to Georgia for the Beep Ball World Series. Koch said the Beep Ball game is something new for the community and Glencoe Days, and added the Lions are always looking for new ideas to help the community and help others. Koch said the game ties into the Lions’ mission of helping with sight and hearing impairment issues, not only in Minnesota but around the world. “I feel passionate about this,” Koch said of the Beep Ball program. “The Lions members were a great help in getting this going.” ***** Another new addition to the schedule will be sumo wrestling, also at 6 p.m., Saturday. Combatants will don airfilled suits and “wrestle.” There will be demonstrations in a ring, and there is a charge for anyone interested in giving it a try, according to Myranda Vandamme of the Glencoe Area Chamber of Commerce.

of Lester Prairie, who died in 2001; Katie Czech of Silver Lake, who died in 2008; Jessica Buboltz of Kasota, who lived in the area during her childhood, in 2010; and Dominga Limon of Glencoe, who died in 2012. The goal of the project is to heighten awareness of domestic violence and its effects on families. ***** The McLeod Alliance for Victims of Domestic Violence began in 1993 as a collaborative effort of a “group of community leaders, pastors, law enforcement, survivors, child care workers and educators,” said Barrall. Instrumental to getting the organization off ground, said Vacek, was Cindy Koepp, “who served a lot of clients from her kitchen table.” The mission is to provide “non-judgmental, confidential support” to victims of violence, Barrall said. To that end, the alliance’s help is driven entirely by the needs of the client. Vacek noted that the alliance is an independent organization, and isn’t the arm of any other organization, such as law enforcement. “We do work with other non-profits and agencies — with signed consent,” said Vacek. As an example, Barrall said the alliance isn’t required to report any abuse to the police; however, if a client wishes to file a complaint, the alliance will help he or she do so. Vacek said the alliance can provide immediate, emergency service, such as safe housing for up to three days (then the client may be referred to another facility), but also provides long-term, ongoing help, sometimes for up to a year. “Sometimes when people hear about abuse, they think, ‘why don’t they just leave?’” said Vacek. “But it isn’t always that simple.” Leaving an abusive home may also mean losing income, transportation and family support. That is why the alliance will help coordinate services with such agencies as Trailblazer Transit, the McLeod Emergency Food Shelf, schools, hospitals and others. Among other services the alliance offers are: • 24-hour crisis line support. • Help with legal issues, such as obtaining restraining orders, orders for protection and tracking offenders through the justice system. • Safety planning, for those survivors who choose to stay in their homes. • Support groups. • Educational presentations. (“We’d rather be proactive than reactive,” said Buerkle). • Spanish-speaking advocates. • Services for what are considered “secondary” clients. “Not everyone who comes here is a victim of direct violence,” said Vacek. “Sometimes someone shows up or calls and says, ‘my daughter is being abused’ or ‘my mom is being hurt; what can I do to help them?’” ***** With one in four women experiencing abuse, the task of helping them can be overwhelming, both financially and emotionally. “We make sure we take care of each other,” said Vacek of the emotional impact. “I think people would be surprised at how much we do with our very limited budget,” said Buerkle of the financial strain on the agency. She spends a good portion of her time trying to find grants for the alliance. “The whole system is overwhelmed,” agreed Barrall. Nearly every agency has seen cuts in revenue. But all four of the alliance’s staffers — including Nora Young as well as Vacek, Buerkle and Barrall — feel that there is community support for the alliance. Not only do community members support the alliance’s fundraisers and donate money and items, but about 30 people volunteer their time in a variety of ways. “Everyone knows someone who has been or is being abused,” said Vacek. “It impacts everyone.” For more information about the alliance, call 320-2347933, or toll-free at 800-9340851, or visit its website, www.mcleodalliance.org. The alliance also has a Facebook page, and accepts inbox messages there.

If next referendum expects to pass, public must push it this time
Our view: Third vote faces same old criticism; but now the price tag is climbing, too
he Glencoe-Silver Lake School Board is again looking at another building bond referendum, possibly next fall. This will be the third attempt to be exact. But this time, the price tag has gone up considerably due to the rising cost of construction materials — to nearly $25 million from the previous $18.6 million — but the size of the project has not. The Early Childhood Family Education/Special Education wing in the original plan is being done separately this year. So why spend more for less? Because the immediate and longrange space needs have not disappeared. There are still space problems that need to be addressed at the Helen Baker Elementary building especially, and an expansion and remodeling at that facility will not address the issue in an efficient way. At last week’s School Board meeting, school officials and the district’s architect met and addressed some of the public’s concerns from the previous two referendum attempts, both defeats by small margins. But in the process of presenting other ideas on grade configurations with a building project, school officials may have muddied the waters even more. The School Board should stick with its original plan. That plan was solid. That plan was efficient. That plan addressed the school district’s needs — more classrooms, more activities space, more efficiencies by closing the one building and consolidating on the junior high-senior high campus, etc. So why is it so difficult to get a building bond referendum passed? There are probably as many reasons as there are no voters. First of all, the easiest thing to do is to vote no, without offering a reason or any alternatives. Some critics have ideas. Some want the Helen Baker remodeled and expanded. That makes sense on the surface, until the numbers are crunched. Remodeling of Helen Baker was studied in 2005, and the report came back that for $4 million, the building could be upgraded with a new roof, new windows, new electrical system, etc. But the building would be no larger, and the plan would not address the main issue — lack of space. To address the space issue, the building would not only need to be remodeled but expanded. The Helen Baker site is landlocked, however. The only space available would require the elimination of the playground area that is used extensively by the primary-level students. The other hurdle is the state education department; it may not approve any expansion plans at Helen Baker. Another concern was the sale of
The McLeod County Chronicle, Wednesday, June 19, 2013, page 4
the Helen Baker building. The last thing the school board wants is a vacant, deteriorating building. But it cannot sell the building before a referendum is passed. And no one is sure of the interest in the building until it is put up for sale. So which comes first? Another criticism concerns the additional gym space designed into the new building plans at the Lincolnhigh school campus. Critics point to the issue of favoring athletics over academics in the building design. That is not true. Despite what some critics think, physical education and athletics are all part and parcel of the educational experience. There is a need for activity space for the various extracurricular programs and physical education classes, whether the building bond is approved or not. Just like the Helen Baker facility, space needs are not going away at the high school. The gym space, like it or not, is an integral part of the building plans. To eliminate that segment is shortsighted. To address these space needs in a piecemeal way only drives up the cost of the building project. That makes no sense. Another big hurdle involves the lopsided no vote in Silver Lake. Critics, time and again, point out that the district is planning to close the Lakeside Elementary some day. The School Board members and administrators have stressed over and over again that Lakeside remains in the district’s long-range plans, and point to the millions of dollars invested in that facility over the past few years as proof. What don’t Silver Lake voters believe? But it is not just Silver Lake voters who have rejected the district’s building plans. Plato and New Auburn vote solidly no as well. But the biggest disappointment is in Glencoe, where a super-majority is needed to get anything approved on a referendum ballot. Glencoe voters, however, are equally split when it comes to additional education funding, in particular for a building bond. One has not been approved in Glencoe since the high school opened in 1970. What is needed is a groundswell to push this building referendum. But the public simply is not demanding this project be done, the impetus is coming from school officials. So where is the public’s demand? It simply is not there. Perhaps another referendum will be a waste of taxpayers’ money. But that leaves the school officials holding the bag, and stitching together annual solutions to address space needs as best they can. Without public demand for action, the latest referendum discussion may be dead in the water. — R.G.
Letters to Editor Discrimination goes both ways over gay marriage
To the Editor: I am writing this letter partially as a response to Shannon Twiss’ letter (“What do we have if we write prejudices into law?” June 5). As many are aware, the state of Minnesota recently voted on legislation that legalized gay marriage beginning in August. Although the legality of the issue has been decided, many continue to debate the negative effects that the legislation will have on personal beliefs and religious freedoms. Miss Twiss stated the government endorsement of gay marriage will promote religious freedoms and limit discrimination. Attempts by the government to “limit discrimination” usually end up providing one group with certain rights at the expense of another. This is where my major concern lies. The bill may claim to promote freedom, but, in reality, it opens a door for less religious tolerance. Many gay advocacy groups believe that the legal endorsement of marriage is not enough. Many gay activists want to further their cause by forcing individuals (and religious institutions) to accept, support and publicly endorse gay marriage. If an individual is against gay marriage based on personal religious beliefs, they often face being ostracized and are labeled “homophobic.” As it stands, religion is the biggest obstacle to social acceptance of homosexuality. Therefore, individuals who oppose gay marriage based on their religious beliefs are heavily targeted. Opponents could be charged with hate crimes, and their speech criminalized. Such behavior is a threat to our liberty. Due to the gay marriage legislation, private business owners are awarded no protection when it comes to preserving their religious beliefs. There have been a number of cases throughout the country of individuals who have faced lawsuits because they have refused to compromise their beliefs. For example, Phyllis Young, owner of Aloha Bed and Breakfast in Hawaii, respectfully denied service to a lesbian couple because she felt it violated her Christian beliefs. As a result, Phyllis faces charges of discrimination based on sexual orientation. The Christian owner of a flower shop in Washington faced similar charges when she turned down a request to provide flowers for a gay wedding. In both cases, the actions of the individuals were considered to be discriminatory because they did not support the ideology of gay activists. How does such policy ensure religious freedom as Miss Twiss claims it will? Miss Twiss also seems to believe that gender-neutral terms are acceptable as long as they are considered to be “politically correct.” The real issue at hand (and the issue constantly being ignored) is that our society has come to believe that “political correctness” is more important than individual liberties. I have had just about enough of the indoctrination of politically correct terms and the whole idea that speech can be limited if it has the potential to offend. I have news for everyone: The Constitution does not guarantee that individuals will never be offended. This is the price we pay to guarantee our First Amendment right of free speech. In conclusion, I think it is important to remember that discrimination always has the potential to go both ways. I do not believe in dehumanizing individuals based on race, gender, sexual orientation, etc. However, gay advocates should not be allowed to force their personal beliefs at the expense of traditional marriage advocates. The gay marriage bill (and its advocates) only support “freedom” as long as it is consistent with their pro-gay ideology. As soon as an individual voices opposition, their freedom of speech must be silenced. It’s the same old liberal logic in which individuals are allowed to have free speech only if they agree with the liberal agenda. Such logic is severely flawed and ends up placing further limits on individual free speech rights. Jonathan Boesche Glencoe
Legislature did pass bonding bill, just a smaller one
To the Editor: I’m writing to respond to Pat Tanchin’s letter “Legislature failed in not passing bonding bill” that appeared in the paper. Ms. Tanchin’s misleadingly statement states that the Legislature did not pass a bonding bill, and that is simply not true. I was proud to join 120 of my fellow legislators to pass a slimmeddown bonding bill by a wide bipartisan margin that provided funding to restore the State Capitol, the “treasured state landmark” that Ms. Tanchin implies did not receive funding. In addition to funding for Capitol restoration, the bonding bill included funding for a Minneapolis Veterans Home and flood mitigation. The reason the House voted not to approve the larger $800 million bonding bill was rather simple; it was not a bonding year. Bonding bills are typically reserved for even-numbered years. A bonding bill of this size during a budget year is practically unheard of, and I was frankly surprised that Democrats in the Legislature chose to pursue it before even finishing work on the state budget. I think it was necessary to exercise some restraint; just because we had the ability to borrow more money from taxpayers does not mean we should have broken from tradition and voted to borrow money in a non-bonding year. Ms. Tanchin stresses the needs for jobs and construction projects, and I agree. One of the reasons I voted against borrowing $800 million from the hard-working taxpayers of Minnesota is I believe we should begin work on the nearly $3 billion in projects that are still in the pipeline. In 2014, I fully expect that the Legislature will pass a significantly larger bonding bill that will create numerous jobs and fund a number of investments. I was proud to support a responsibly sized, widely supported bonding bill this year, and will evaluate the bonding proposal next session on its merits as well. District 18B State Rep. Glenn Gruenhagen, R-Glencoe

Council moves ahead with liquor store plans
By Rich Glennie Editor Glencoe City Council authorized plans and specifications be drawn up for the $400,000 liquor store expansion project with a bid opening scheduled for late October or early November. City Administrator Mark Larson said the late bid opening is to allow the liquor store to get through the busy holiday season without interruption. The remodeling and expansion work, mainly indoors, would begin Jan. 2, traditionally a slower time of the year for the liquor store, he said. The goal is to keep the liquor store open throughout the construction work, Larson said, and possibly do much of the work in the morning with a later in the day opening for the liquor store. Larson said the parking lot expansion could be started this fall as part of the 2013 street improvement project. The parking lot would be expanded into the city-owned lot west of the liquor store, and it would eliminate the current “two-tier alley,” he said. Council member Kevin Dietz, a former police officer, said he also was concerned about correcting water problems in the basement of the liquor store/police department. He said that has been a problem for many years. Larson said the main issue is plugged drain tiles that need to be reopened. He said the water issues are mainly where the building electrical units are located. Another option may be to move the building’s electrical units upstairs, Dietz said. In other matters, City Council: • Will replace a three-year temporary gross revenue bond for the Glencoe City Center with a 15-year facility refunding bond. The bonds are designed to help operate and maintain the City Center. Paul Donna, city’s bond counsel with Northland Securities, said the temporary bond comes due in September and is held by Security Bank & Trust of Glencoe. Donna said he will continue negotiations with Security Bank & Trust and bring the matter back to City Council in July and August. • Approved a variance request for Kelly Miguel, 329 E. 15th St., to build a fence closer to the lot line than allowed by ordinance. The fence would be two feet from the back lot line. The Glencoe Planning and Industrial Commission recommended approval.

Construction season
It is summer time, and the street work has begun, and that includes local sidewalk and parking lot reconstruction as well. Monday morning, workers from Flatworks Concrete began replacing the sidewalk and driveway to The Stylists on 10th Street. The concrete cutter created quite the dust storm in the early morning. The sidewalk replacement is the city’s portion of the project.

Assessments Continued from page 1
along with 45 percent of the street costs. After that, Larson said, all the other projects “were developer-driven” and paid completely by the developer. The only exception was the final lift of blacktop for Glenview Estates on the south side of Glencoe. The city completed that work and assessed the costs to the benefiting properties. Perschau then cited two instances in the 1970s when assessments were used and Ballard was a member of City Council at the time. He said Ballard approved the assessments on both occasions. In 1984, Ballard’s property was specially assessed for blacktop and curb and gutter, Perschau added. “Gary should have known that,” Schrupp added about the assessment policy of the city. “We have been doing this for awhile.” Perschau said with the recent years of budget cuts and less aid to cities, “this (streets) is an example of where it shows up.” He said cities are now more “on their own” in addressing how to pay for street projects due to the cuts in local government aid in the previous couple of state biennium budgets. The city does put money into street maintenance and patching, but Rodeberg said to add $2 million to the property tax rolls each year would balloon property taxes in Glencoe. Schrupp said the city has budgeted about $60,000 a year for sealcoating and street overlay work, but that amount barely gets the equipment mobilized. The city used to budget $100,000 a year for street work and that would do about 18 blocks, Larson added. Now with the price of oil and materials rising, that same $100,000 would do only four or five blocks. With three bonds coming off the tax rolls this year totally about $150,000, Larson said the plan is to issue a new bond for the 2013 street improvements in place of the three retiring bonds. It will not impact property taxes at all, he added. Rodeberg said it will take several weeks for the bids and specifications to be put together, and a bid opening could be done in August. He said, weather permitting, the planned partial reconstruction, sealcoating and crack repairs could still be done this year. If it gets too late in the year, Rodeberg said the final work could be done in the spring of 2014. Council unanimously approved moving ahead with the street improvement project. ***** In a related matter, Paul Donna of Northland Securities, the city bond counsel, said the $2.36 million bond would be a general obligation bond over a 15-year period. Of that, $590,000 would be special assessments to property owners. Assessments could be paid up front or over a yet-to-be determined period of time. Donna stressed that state statute requires a minimum of 20 percent of the cost be special assessed. The proposed assessments make up about 25 percent of the project costs, he added, but he said final figures will not be known until bids are received. The city’s bond payment would be about $148,000 a year, Larson said. And with about $150,000 a year coming off from the three current bonds, “the tax impact to taxpayers would be zero.” Larson said the city has paid for street improvements 100 percent on projects like the Morningside Avenue work south of Highway 212 and on the 2004 street improvements. But he said whenever the city does that, it counts against the city’s bond limit, the limit set on borrowing. Currently, the city’s debt limit is about $7.4 million. Its current debt takes up about $4.3 million of that. To add 100 percent of the 2013 street improvements cost would take up another $2.3 million, leaving only $1.2 million of available debt. Donna said that is a “danderous level” and would greatly reduce the city’s ability to pay for future projects. Donna said revenue bonds do not count against the city’s debt limit, nor do any bonds that include a revenue source. ***** Rodeberg also addressed another criticism brought up at the June 3 public hearing. A resident felt as rapidly as West 17th Street had deteriorated, the final life of bituminous may not have been put onto the street when built in 2004. But Rodeberg said his research indicated that final lift was in place. “The road has settled,” he added. West 17th Street is scheduled for partial reconstruction this year.

RIM-WRP sign-up now open throughout state
ST. PAUL — Partnering with local soil and water conservation districts, the Board of Water and Soil Resources (BWSR) and the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) announced recently that the 2013 RIM-WRP program sign-up is now open. The program offers competitive payment rates for landowners to restore wetlands that have been drained and have a history of being used for agricultural production. “Restoring wetlands on privately owned lands provides many public benefits, such as enhancing wildlife habitat, improving water quality and reducing potential flood damage in targeted areas,” said John Jaschke, BWSR executive director. RIM-WRP is a local-statefederal partnership that combines the state’s Reinvest in Minnesota (RIM) Reserve conservation easement program with the USDA Wetlands Reserve Program (WRP). Combining these two programs allows state funds to leverage federal funds that are available through the Federal Farm Bill. Funding for this partnership is through the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service and BWSR. The state dollars for this partnership have been provided from the constitutionally dedicated Outdoor Heritage Fund, based on a recommendation of the Lessard-Sams Outdoor Heritage Council, and through bonding dollars. The RIM-WRP sign-up period began June 3, with funding decisions expected by mid July. Eligibility is statewide, but priority is given to areas of Minnesota that have experienced the greatest wetland losses. Competitive payment rates have been established for this partnership. Interested landowners should contact their local Soil and Water Conservation District or Natural Resources Conservation Service staff at the local USDA Service Center. More information can be found on BWSR’s website: www.bwsr.state.mn.us.

Helen Lorraine Lipke was born June 17, 1924, in New Auburn, the oldest of two children of Frank and Clara (Alsleben) Lipke. She was baptized June 29, 1924, at Immanuel Lutheran Church in New Auburn, and confirmed in her faith April 10, 1938, at First Lutheran Church in Glencoe by the Rev. Alfred Streufert. During her youth, the family moved quite frequently. The first five grades of her education were at District 74 McLeod County country school, her sixth grade was at the New Auburn school and her seventh and eighth grades were at First Lutheran School in Glencoe.

Pastor’s book signing set June 22 in Glencoe
“Walking back from Nick’s grave, his mom pushing against her husband and forcing him to carry her as he had once carried Nick’s colt, she whimpered in broken syllables through the tears streaking down her face, “Is th-this God’s w-w-will?” ***** Have you ever wondered what your pastor ’s life is like? Some may wonder what it’s like to work one day a week, while others, who truly understand the vocation, may wonder how a pastor navigates the difficult ups and downs of a life always on call. In “The Kingdom of Collectible Treasures,” Douglas Knick of Gibbon provides an insider look at this incredibly rewarding and sometimes thankless job as it explores the joys, challenges, and surprises of a newly ordained pastor struggling to remain faithful to God and to the gospel to change and transform lives. Sometimes the joys of salvation and being upheld in the spirit are delivered in the most unusual ways, and like the parishioners, you might encounter a God who cannot be limited by tradition but who continually expresses abounding and endless love for us all. Knick has served as a parish pastor for 10 years and holds both a master of divinity and doctor of education degree. He is currently an associate professor at Luther College and is the founder and director of Delta Institute, an organization that offers multiple equine therapy programs and specializes in working with youth. A book signing for “The Kingdom of Collectible Treasures,” will be held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., Saturday, June 22, at Gert and Erma’s Coffee Shop in Glencoe.

She was baptized at Immanuel Lutheran Church in Gaylord on July 15, 1934, and was confirmed on Palm Sunday, March 21, 1948, at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Gaylord. She was a 1952 graduate of Gaylord High School. On July 2, 1952, she married Clarence H. Becker at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Gaylord. They worked together farming.

Roundabout construction
Construction began June 10 on the new roundabout at the intersection of McLeod County Road 115 and Highway 15 just south of Hutchinson. A related project is the milling off of the existing bituminous on Highway 15 between Highway 212 and Denver Avenue in Hutchinson and replacing it with new material. It is hoped that the projects will be done by the time the McLeod County Fair opens in mid August.

ome people find forgiving much easier after they’ve gotten even! Others forgive because they know it really annoys the trespasser. Of course, the only proper motivation for forgiving is that we ourselves have been forgiven.
“Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us,” – this is a serious deal we make with God. Forgiveness feels good. It lightens our heart both when we give it and when we receive it. Forgiveness is evidence that we believe God’s forgiveness is real. We recognize and confess the huge inventory of sins we have piled up each day. Then we understand the magnitude of God’s grace and realize our obligation to forgive others. Do some forgiving today. Then forget it.

Food shelf annual meeting notes record number served
The McLeod Emergency Food Shelf held its annual meeting May 16 in the meeting room at the Church of St. Pius X, and reported that last year, 460,012 pounds of food was given out in 4,707 distributions, and 14,200 individuals received 354,436 meals. “This was a new record number of individuals served,” said Marietta Neumann, executive director of the food shelf. Recognition also was given to over 50 volunteers for their accumulated 6,400 hours of volunteer service. Juana Crenshaw had 843 hours at the Glencoe site with Mavis and Morris Bjurlin

putting in 707 hours each at the Hutchinson site. “Volunteers are a very important part of the operation of the food shelf, and there is a constant need for volunteers,” Neumann said. The election of directors was held with Kay Hultgren, Kenneth Merrill, Becky Graff and Gretchen Haukos joining the food shelf board Neumann thanked the outgoing board members, Dr. Gerald Close and Ron Makovsky for their 12 years of service and Joann Jacques for her six years of service. Each was presented a plaque. New officers for the coming year are Craig Tromborg,
chairman; Hutlgren, vice chairperson; Graff, treasurer; and Lloyd Graupmann, secretary. The remainder of the board includes Ellen Whitcomb, Stephanie Kadelbach, Myranda Vandamme, Amy Berry, Gerard Stifter and the Rev. Lanny Penwell. Neumann also thanked the community for all the donations of time and talent. “We received $175,205 in cash and 480,953 pounds of food in donations,” she said. She especially thanked the late Geraldine Tews for her generous donation of a trust fund to the McLeod Emergency Food Shelf.
Finally, feels like summer!
After months of cold, damp weather this spring and early summer, the weather finally turned more summer-like last Thursday and the youngsters took full advantage at the Glencoe Aquatics Center. Above, Breana Templin, left, held 3-year-old Kia Kelzer while Mikayla Beneke smiled. At right, Drake Lieser, 12, of Glencoe, performed a “cannon ball” into the water. Below, Adyson Binsfeld took her turn under one of the water fountains at the swimming pool.
