Vandalism has been ram-
pant at the two parks in
Green Isle this spring and
summer, according to City
Clerk Bert Panning.
Sticks, papers and grass
have been placed in the toi-
lets and urinals in the rest-
rooms at the Green Isle Base-
ball Park. The incident has
been repeated so many times
that the city now locks the
restrooms each evening. Chil-
dren who play at this park
after that time every night are
now unable to use the rest-
rooms.
Four concrete benches at
the street level and overlook
the Lions Park have been
tipped over. In many cases,
the concrete branches have
been rolled down the hill to
the ball field area. The con-
crete branches are so heavy
that the city tractor and forks
are needed to haul them back
up the hill.
The portable restrooms at
the Lions Park have been
tipped several times.
Twelve bulbs have been
broken and some fixtures
damaged in the shelter/pavil-
lion area at the Lions Park.
A pellet gun or high pow-
ered BB gun have been used
to shoot holes in the walls at
the Lions Park.
A group of young kids
tossed some firecrackers in
the direction of a young
woman and her child at the
Green Isle Baseball Park. The
young woman and her child
left the park.

Instead of requesting state
grant funds, Sibley County is
offering to send back
$110,000 in approved funds
for the Rush River Imple-
mentation Project that were
not utilized.
Nick Bancks, Watershed
Projects Coordinator, gave an
update on program funding to
the Board of Commissioners
at the recent meeting held in
Gaylord.
He asked for the ok to send
$110,000 in grant funding for
the Rush River Implementa-
tion Project back to the Envi-
ronment Protection Agency
(EPA). The funds were not
utilized and the grant runs out
in August.
A manure management
project on farms had $67,000
in grant funds to cover 78
projects. The county had two
project applications for a total
of $1, 800. That means
$65,700 in grant funds will
be sent back.
Funds were granted for
structural practices for ma-
nure runoff control, totaling
$100,000 for 11 practices.
Eight were applied for at
$70,000, so $30,000 will go
back.
There was a change in
projects coordinator during
this period, a position that re-
ceived $30,000 in grants. Be-
cause of the vacancy period,
$14,300 will go back.
In other business, Sibley
County approved a social
media policy. County Admin-
istrator Matt Jaunich said he
and staff have been working
on the policy the past three
months to provide guidelines
for when staff wants to get
information to the public in a
timely manner and create av-
enues for communication.
The Sibley County Board
of Commissioners will hold
their next meeting in Gaylord
at 9 a.m. Tuesday, June 24.

The Arlington City Coun-
cil, during its regular meeting
on Monday night, June 16,
unanimously approved a mo-
tion to approve the employ-
ment termination of mainte-
nance worker Lee Zwart with
cause effective Tuesday, June
17.
City Council members
James Jaszewski, Jennifer
Nuesse, Curt Reetz, Jason
Ruehling and Galen Wills all
voted in favor of the motion.
The City Council made its
move based on a recommen-
dation from City Administra-
tor Liza Donabauer and
Maintenance Supervisor Tony
Voigt.
Prior to the motion and
unanimous vote, the City
Council met in a closed ses-
sion for the purpose of evalu-
ating an employee’s perform-
ance.
Zwart had been an employ-
ee for the City of Arlington
for approximately six-plus
months.
In other action, the City
Council unanimously ap-
proved a motion to approve
the 2014 seal coating plan
and authorized the advertise-
ment for bids. The bids will
be opened on Thursday, July
17. The City Council, in turn,
will act upon the bids at their
regular meeting on Monday
night, July 21.
The City Council made the
move based on a presentation
from City Engineer Jason
Femrite.
The City Council, in other
news, unanimously approved
a motion to hire Edward
Aranda as an attendant at the
Community Center.
In another matter, the City
Council unanimously ap-
proved a motion to authorize
Haggenmiller Lumber, Ar-
lington, to replace a roof and
wall steel on the park shelter
at the Arlington Sportsmen’s
Park for $6,855.53.
The Arlington City Council
will hold its next regular
meeting at 6:30 p.m. Monday,
July 7.
Arlington City Council dismisses employee
By Kurt Menk
Editor
The Arlington City Coun-
cil, during its regular meeting
on Monday night, June 16,
held the first reading of an
amended ordinance to extend
the closing time for on-sale
liquor establishments until 2
a.m. Monday through Satur-
day. The current closing is 1
a.m.
Arlington Dugout owner
Matt Carney, during the pre-
vious regular meeting, made
the request because “the cost
of running a business is not
getting any cheaper” and to
help cover the additional cost
of the new license at the Ar-
lington Community Center.
Prior to the first reading,
the City Council held a dis-
cussion on the issue.
City Council member Jason
Ruehling voiced concern that
the police department sched-
ule would be moved back one
hour. He also expressed con-
cern that other people would
“race” over to Arlington for
last call.
City Council member Curt
Reetz raised concerns over
the additional law enforce-
ment time and the extra open
hour up in the former Com-
munity Hall.
The discussion also cen-
tered around what time last
call would be held and what
time patrons would be ex-
pected to leave the liquor es-
tablishment.
After the discussion, it was
the consensus that all alcohol
must be off the bar at 2 a.m.
and all patrons must leave the
liquor establishment at that
same time.
The second reading of the
amended ordinance will be
held at the next regular meet-
ing at 6:30 p.m. Monday, July
7. If the amended ordinance
is adopted at that meeting, it
would go into effect upon
publication of the document
in the Arlington Enterprise.
In addition to the amended
ordinance, a special liquor li-
cense from the State of Min-
nesota is required.
In other action, Carney re-
quested permission to use
Main Street to host a Town
Cook Out with a Bike, Car
and Tractor Show from 5
p.m. to 9 p.m. on the third
Thursday in July, August and
September.
Carney was instructed to
meet with City Administrator
Liza Donabauer to work out
the details. The matter will be
brought back to the City
Council at the next regular
meeting.

The Sibley East ECFE and
Elementary Schools have
been named Minnesota
Reading Corps and Math
Corps sites for 2014. As a
result, the schools will be re-
cruiting five paid tutors for
the 2014-2015 school year.
Minnesota Reading Corps
and Math Corps is a
statewide, research-based
initiative to help every Min-
nesota student become a suc-
cessful reader by the end of
third grade or become profi-
cient in math by the end of
eighth grade. The Gaylord
and Arlington Schools are
five of approximately 800
sites awarded this status
throughout the state of Min-
nesota.
According to data from
2013 state standardized tests,
one in three Minnesota third
graders does not read at
grade level, and 40 percent
of Minnesota 8th graders do
not demonstrate proficiency
in math. Executive Director
at Minnesota Reading Corps
and Math Corps Sheila Piip-
po explained that schools are
turning to Minnesota Read-
ing Corps and Math Corps to
help struggling students who
would otherwise not receive
additional support. “We are
seeing real results and are
encouraged that students
who previously were not on
track to succeed are now
catching up to their peers.”
Piippo encourages anyone
interested in learning more
about Minnesota Reading or
Math Corps, or anyone inter-
ested in applying to serve as
a tutor, to visit www.Min-
nesotaMathCorps. org, or
contact 866-859-2825.

In Loving Memory of
Michael “Whi tey” Herd
Little did we know the morning that
God was going to call your name.
In life we loved you dearly, in death
we do the same. It broke our hearts
to lose you, though you didn’t go
alone, for part of us went with you
the day that God called you home.
You left us peaceful memories,
your love is still our guide; and
though we cannot see you we
know you are by our side. Our fam-
ily chain is broken, and nothing
seems the same; but as God calls
us one by one we know we will all
be linked again in our Lord’s great
name. We miss you dearly, with full
hearts but with great joy because
we know exactly where you are.
We will continue this journey of
life, living, loving and pursuing
greatness and serving others just
as you did.
In Christ,

Despite widespread rain
last week, Minnesota farmers
have managed to reach plant-
ing levels close to the five-
year averages.
The U.S. Department of
Agriculture reported that 97
percent of Minnesota’s ex-
pected corn acreage has now
been planted. This is only
two percentage points behind
average. Ninety-four percent
of the planted corn has
emerged, which is only one
point behind normal.
Soybean planting is 93 per-
cent complete which is two
points behind average.
Eighty-two percent of the
soybean crop has emerged,
which is slightly behind aver-
age.
Spring wheat planting is
nearly complete. Ninety-three
percent of spring wheat has
emerged which is five points
behind average.
Potato, barley and oat
plantings also are nearly
complete.
Thanks to all the rain, top-
soil moisture statewide is
rated 60 percent adequate and
40 percent surplus. There
were 3.4 days suitable for
fieldwork across the state last
week.
Despite recent rain, farmers
have reached planting levels
close to 5-year averages

Arlington Enterprise
tries to feature a variety
of news and photos
Our View: Readers can help by
submitting news and pictures too
Letters To The Editor
Guest Column
The Arlington Enterprise tries hard to feature a variety of
news and pictures in our newspaper each week to keep our
readers and advertisers happy. That can be a difficult task at
various times, especially when school news can dominate the
newspaper during any given week throughout the year.
However, a variety of news and pictures is the constant and
never ending goal at our newspaper.
Some people enjoy the hard news like city council and
school board stories. Others like the school news and sports.
The editorial page is very popular with some readers. Others
like the police news and court reports. Photos are also a big
part of the newspaper. Some people like to read feature sto-
ries and that is one area where our newspaper needs to im-
prove upon.
Our newspaper would also like to improve in a number of
other areas and that is where our readers can help out. Our
newspaper encourages readers to submit birth announce-
ments and pictures, engagement announcements and pic-
tures, and wedding pictures with write ups. Submissions of
fishing and hunting photos are also encouraged. In addition,
residents are urged to submit news and photos about their
children and grandchildren who may live out of the Arling-
ton and Green Isle area.
People who have these types of announcements and pic-
tures are encouraged to drop them off at the Arlington Enter-
prise office or e-mail them to kurtm@arlingtonmnnews.com.
The addition of these types of news items and pictures will
help to make our community newspaper much more com-
plete.

To The Editor,
I wish to respond to last week’s
letter from the Renville-Sibley Fiber
Co-op board against me. It was dis-
appointing to see their leadership re-
sort to personal attacks and inaccu-
racies.
Presently, I’ve asked the Minneso-
ta Attorney General to determine if
the RS Fiber Coop or the RS Fiber
Joint Powers Board:
• Used your taxpayer money or re-
sources to attack a private citizen
• Violated Open Meeting Laws
• Shielded conflicts of interest re-
lated to this project
As such, I hope the Attorney Gen-
eral will issue a cease-&-desist for
all RS Fiber activities until this is
sorted out. Meanwhile, here is what
I have worked on since filing for
County Commissioner:
Rural High Speed Internet:
On Aug. 1, I’ll facilitate a panel
discussion of elected officials and
internet providers to create an action
plan for getting high speed internet
access to anyone who cannot get it
now. By business and government
partnering together these scattered
areas could have high speed internet
within 12 months and without using
taxpayer money.
Washington Lake Drainage:
In 1975 the Sibley County Com-
missioners and the Washington Lake
Township supervisors worked to-
gether to solve a difficult CD1A
ditch drainage issue for Washington
Lake and Erin Lake off trunk high-
way 25 near Green Isle. Since about
2010, three state agencies compli-
cated what for 35 years was a great
solution. I have been briefed by an
affected farmer and Environmental
Services. In 2015, I’ll work togeth-
er with the other commissioners
along with State Senator Newman
and State Representative Gruen-
hagen to help landowners get back
their right of local control.
Drainage Ditch Flow Rate:
Generally speaking our ditches
drain Northwest to Southeast. The
Minnesota River near Henderson
gets a lot of the water. If it flows
too quickly Henderson gets too
much too fast; yet, if it flows too
slowly western and central fields
hold water too long. I’ll work to-
gether with the other commissioners
to ensure drainage without flooding.
Phase 3 Ditch Redetermination:
Five years ago, Sibley County
embarked on a 20-year county-wide
ditch tax redetermination. Phase 3
begins soon and while phases 1 and
2 went well, I’ll be there to advocate
for landowners.
My friends, together you and I
can solve just about any challenge
facing us.

Santelman responds to letter from fiber board
To The Editor,
My husband, Mark Santelman, is
running for Sibley County Commis-
sioner seat #5. I am responding to
last week’s RS Fiber Co-op letter.
After 24 years, I, better than any-
one, know Mark Santelman. He is a
man of tremendous patience, kind-
ness, and tolerance and a great sense
of humor. Our children and I love,
honor, and cherish him. His ability
to research facts and talk with you,
the citizens of Sibley County, to get
your thoughts and input on impor-
tant issues is impressive. Admitted-
ly, he has zero tolerance and pa-
tience with anyone taking advantage
of you, which is what he believes is
happening to you with the fiber
project. To him, there is no humor
in this and his tenacity to protect
you can come across to RS Fiber
Co-op as not being kind.
It is my hope that you research
both sides of this issue and come to
the conclusion that Mark is not lying
or using scare tactics or making up
your mind for you. Whether or not
you vote for my husband (I hope
you do), never doubt that our six
children and I stand by him. We
know how much he treasures you,
and conversely we treasure him for
that.

Research both sides of the fiber project
By Senator John Marty
Although many people have never
heard of triclosan, most of us have it
in our bodies. Triclosan is an antimi-
crobial chemical that was added to
consumer products including soaps
and toothpaste several decades ago
and marketed as a benefit for users
because it could kill bacteria. It was
a successful advertising tool, and
has been used by so many personal
care product companies that for a
time, it was difficult to find a liquid
hand soap that did not contain tri-
closan.
However, researchers have found
that our bodies absorb this chemical.
It shows up even in the breast milk
of nursing mothers. Triclosan and
its derivatives have also been found
downstream from wastewater treat-
ment plants.
Like many other chemical addi-
tives to consumer products, tri-
closan’s widespread use occurred
despite the lack of evidence that it is
beneficial to consumers' health, and
despite growing concerns about pos-
sible risks to health and the environ-
ment.
Fortunately, the Minnesota legis-
lature recently passed the nation’s
first state-wide ban on the use of tri-
closan in consumer soaps. Because
of lobbying by the industry, we were
able to pass the legislation only by
delaying its implementation until
2017, but the new law will eliminate
most of the triclosan that ends up in
Minnesota waters. In addition, al-
though the law has no legal impact
elsewhere, it may help increase pub-
lic pressure on the industry, speed-
ing up the elimination of triclosan
nationally.
Environmental concerns about tri-
closan have grown after pioneering
research by Professor Bill Arnold at
the University of Minnesota docu-
mented that triclosan in wastewater
breaks down into some forms of
dioxin. We don't yet know the ex-
tent of risk from triclosan-derived
dioxins, but we should certainly be
concerned about their impact on
aquatic ecosystems.
Health risks from triclosan are an
equally important concern. The im-
pact of exposure to triclosan on our
skin (from soap and body wash) and
in our mouths (from toothpaste and
mouthwash) is not fully understood,
but triclosan has been shown to in-
terfere with hormone functioning in
lab animals. As a result, scientists
recognize that it may also affect
human liver, blood, and reproduc-
tive systems.
There are also concerns that tri-
closan may add to the growing prob-
lem of antimicrobial-resistant bacte-
ria. This is a significant public
health problem of its own, as doc-
tors and hospitals increasingly strug-
gle against infections that don't re-
spond to antibiotics.
Former Minnesota state epidemi-
ologist Dr. Michael Osterholm has
said that soaps containing triclosan
give no more protection against in-
fectious disease than use of regular

The regular monthly meet-
ing of the Sibley County His-
torical Society will be held at
the museum in Henderson at
7 p.m. Tuesday, June 24. The
museum is located along
Highway 19 at the west edge
of Henderson. Everyone is
welcome, according to Cura-
tor Sharon Haggenmiller.
Members Steve and Becky
Briggs will give a program on
Vintage Postcards, collecting
and research.
People who drive through
Henderson lately may notice
that the trim on the museum
building looks a bit different.
Painter Glen Deno, Gaylord,
and his crew have been busy
scraping and priming the
wood trim and the porch. It
is a part of the spring clean
up effort.
“In the process, however,
he found some fascia dam-
age,” stated Haggenmiller.
“Birds have been flying in
and out, using the space as
their home. All needs to be
fixed before the painting can
be completed. Being on the
National Register of Historic
Places, all exterior work has
to be done according to the
Secretary of Interior’s Stan-
dards of Rehabilitation. The
society membership is fortu-
nate to have some retired
contractors on hand to help
with the situation.”
The Sibley County Country
Schools book is coming
along. The committee will
still take any information
people have to offer. Pictures
and souvenirs are scanned
into its system and returned.
People are encouraged to tell
the SCHS members about
their experience while attend-
ing country school, or even
stories told to them by par-
ents or grandparents. This
book is not just names of stu-
dents or teachers of Sibley
County Country Schools, but
also includes the interesting
stories of things that hap-
pened during the school days,
chores that had to be done,
games played, etc.
“I believe the committee is
still looking for any of these
items from schools in Faxon
Township, Districts 21, 42,
and especially districts 22
and 23 to scan or photocopy
for use in the publication,”
said Haggenmiller. “The
committee is working count-
less hours to obtain, put to-
gether and publish informa-
tion to give the public a book
that will intrigue its readers
and one that will be read
often.”

is open from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Road Closed
A reconstruction project along County
Road 166 leading out to the Arlington
Sportsmen’s Park started on Monday,
June 16. The project will include the re-
placement of two bridges. The bridge
work is expected to take approximately
four months which will likely mean the
portion of road over the two bridges
will be closed until November. In addi-
tion to the bridge replacements, Sibley
County will also build two new pedestri-
an bridges for the Prairie Line Trail proj-
ect in that same area.

last Thursday evening of the un-

The Sibley East School Board
is organizing a Community Task
Force to gather input from resi-
dents on the improvement of
school facilities and a potential
bond referendum this fall.
Over 350 local and area resi-
dents attended the Arlington
Area Chamber of Commerce’s
annual Breakfast on the Farm
event in the Highland Arena at
the David and Kathy Biron resi-
dence on June 18th.
soap. Because the benefit of
triclosan is minimal or nonex-
istent, and the harm or risks
resulting from its use are sig-
nificant, it is wise to heed the
recommendations of medical
professionals and the Min-
nesota Department of Health,
to stop using triclosan.
Last year, Governor Dayton
took the bold step of directing
state agencies to stop purchas-
ing products containing tri-
closan. Now, this new Min-
nesota law requires the phase
out of triclosan in consumer
soaps by 2017.
Minnesota’s leadership adds
to the growing pressure on
personal care product manu-
facturers to phase-out tri-
closan. While triclosan was
once used as a marketing ploy
to make consumers believe
they were buying a superior
product, we are reaching the
point where triclosan is be-
coming a liability to product
marketing. One major tooth-
paste company still adds tri-
closan, but its competitors do
not, and many now advertise
that their toothpastes are “tri-
closan free.”
The real impact of this leg-
islation will likely occur long
before the ban takes effect in
2017, by encouraging other
states to adopt similar bans
and by increasing pressure on
the industry to stop using tri-
closan.
Consequently, this legisla-
tion might help bring about
the elimination of triclosan
from personal care products -
nationwide - even before the
Minnesota ban formally takes
effect.

Resigns
The Sibley East School
Board, during its regular
monthly meeting in Arlington
on Monday night, June 16,

tion to accept the resgination
from second grade teacher
and varsity tennis coach
Melissa Laumeyer.
School Board members
Brian Brandt, Scott Dose,
Beth DuFrane, Anne Karl,
Missy Weber and Dan
Woehler all voted in favor of
the motion.
“It was such a difficult de-
cision as this is an incredible
district,” said Laumeyer. “I
will miss my tennis team so
much. I was given such an in-
credible opportunity here and
fulfilled so many dreams that
I didn’t think would ever
come true.”
Laumeyer will be teaching
kindergarten for the Sauk
Rapids-Rice school district in
Rice. “It is only about 40
minutes from my family and
I would like to be closer to
them as I think about a future
family.”
She added, “It is so incred-
ibly hard to leave the family
here at Sibley East.”

Delaying roadside mowing
until Aug. 1 benefits pheas-
ants, songbirds, pollinators
and more, according to the
Minnesota Department of
Natural Resources.
“With a growing concern
for pollinators, we all need to
do our part to protect wild-
flower habitat,” said Carmeli-
ta Nelson, DNR prairie grass-
land coordinator. “That’s why
we urge owners of land along
Minnesota roads and high-
ways to avoid mowing or oth-
erwise disturbing the roadside
vegetation until after Aug. 1
or even until the fall to pro-
vide flowers for bees and
nesting cover for birds.”
Roadsides with native
wildflowers are especially
beneficial to native bees. Re-
search has shown that the
width of the roadside and the
proximity to traffic does not
matter to bees. Minnesota bee
keepers place a high value on
roadside wildflowers. The
loss of habitat is one of the
critical causes of the decline
of both wild bees and honey-
bees.
Roadsides also provide
more than 500,000 acres of
nesting areas in the pheasant
range of southern and west-
ern Minnesota. Roadside
habitat is especially important
in intensively row cropped
regions where there is little
other grassland available.
“After a difficult winter
and wet spring, we are con-
cerned about pheasant nesting
this year,” said Scott
Roemhildt, DNR information
officer. “In spite of the weath-
er, pheasant nesting is pretty
much on a typical schedule.”
Most pheasant hens are
currently sitting on nests and
will hatch their broods in
mid- to late June. A nesting
hen lays eggs at a rate of
about one per day. Nests con-
tain an average of 12 eggs.
The incubation period is 23
days and starts after all eggs
have been laid. The hen re-
mains on the nest, leaving
only briefly to feed. If the
nest is destroyed, the hen will
repeatedly nest until she is
successful in hatching a
clutch, although re-nesting
clutches have fewer eggs.
The peak hatch time for
pheasants (about 60 percent)
is the third week in June, but
depending on the weather
there are still a lot of birds
nesting in early July. Hens
will make from one to four
attempts at nesting during the
spring nesting season, but
will only hatch one brood per
year.
Chicks need to be at least
two to three weeks old to
have any chance of escape
from mowers. By Aug. 1 the
reproductive season is over
for most pheasant with the
exception of a few late re-
nesting attempts.
In Minnesota, between
one-fourth and one-third of
pheasants are hatched in
roadsides. Roadsides are also
important habitat to teal, mal-
lards, gray partridge, many
grassland songbirds, frogs
and turtles.
The way roadsides are
managed can influence the
abundance of local wildlife
populations. Roadsides
should also be protected from
burning, crop tillage, grazing,
blanket spraying of herbi-
cides and vehicle encroach-
ment during these months. At
sites where noxious weeds
are a problem, it is recom-
mended that landowners use
spot mowing or spraying for
treatment.
For more information on
the Roadsides for Wildlife
program, visit the DNR web-
site or contact the DNR Infor-
mation Center at 651-296-
6157 or 888-646-6367.
