Cloud on Saturday, June 15,
awarded bids to host the state
tournament in 2016, 2017 and
The threesome of Green
Isle, Hamburg and Norwood
was awarded the state tourna-
ment in 2017.
“We would like to thank
the Hamburg and Norwood
baseball associations for
inviting Green Isle to be a
part of the bid,” said Green
Isle Irish President Joe
Kreger. “Since every team in
our area has a partner to bid
with, we had previously been
left out in the cold. Our or-
ganization is very honored
and excited to have a chance
to host this great event. Now
years of planning and hoping
can be brought to reality. Let
the work begin!”
Norwood and Hamburg co-
hosted the state tournament in
2007. Green Isle, due to
heavy rains, was the emer-
gency site that year and host-
ed nine games in the state
Dassel, Hutchinson and
Litchfield were chosen for
the state tournament in 2016.
Shakopee and New Prague
were awarded the state tour-
nament in 2018.
Chanhassen and Chaska
also submitted a bid to co-
host a state tournament, but
were not chosen.

The Arlington City Coun-
cil, during its regular meeting
on Monday night, June 17,
unanimously approved a mo-
tion to suspend Police Chief
Bruce Rovinsky for one day
without pay.
The City Council took the
action after Rovinsky was
found in contempt of court by
the Honorable Thomas Mc-
Carthy in Sibley County Dis-
trict Court on Thursday
morning, June 6.
Rovinsky had received a
subpoena on Friday, May 31
to testify in a civil matter in
district court on Monday,
June 3.
Rovinsky failed to appear
in district court on Monday,
June 3 and Judge McCarthy,
in turn, summoned Rovinsky
to appear in district court on
Thursday, June 6.
During that court appear-
ance on Thursday, June 6,
Rovinsky apologized to the
court for his failure to appear
and took full responsibility
for the matter.
Rovinsky said he simply
forgot about the court appear-
ance on Monday, June 3.
When asked why he did not
respond to calls to contact
him that day, Rovinsky re-
sponded that he had worked
the late shift on Sunday night,
June 2 and turned off his cell
phone after he went home to
sleep. Rovinsky told Judge
McCarthy that it would never
happen again.
Safe Routes
To School
The City Council unani-
mously approved a motion to
approve the Safe Routes To
School project plans/specifi-
cations and authorize the ad-
vertisement for bids.
The City Council is sched-
uled to open bids on Thurs-
day, July 11, according to
City Engineer Jason Femrite.
Femrite suggested that the
City Council could hold an
open house for adjacent prop-
erty owners sometime be-
tween Monday, July 15 and
Friday, July 19. He said this
is not a requirement, but a
good move to keep adjacent
property owners updated on
the project.
Femrite said the City
Council is scheduled to
award the bid during its regu-
lar meeting on Monday night,
Aug. 5.
He added that the 45-day
construction project is sched-
uled to start on Monday, Aug.
The City of Arlington, with
Sibley County as a sponsor
and the Sibley East Public
Schools and St. Paul’s
Lutheran School as coopera-
tive partners, received a fed-
eral $199,980 Safe Routes To
School grant during the late
summer of 2011.
Arlington, at that time, was
one of 16 Minnesota projects
funded by the federal pro-
gram and announced by the
Minnesota Department of
Transportation (Mn/DOT).
Of the 16 projects, 12 are
in Greater Minnesota and the
rest are in the Twin Cities
metropolitan area. All of the
grants will be used to im-
prove or build trails and side-
walks for walking and biking.
The total was $3.8 million.
“These projects will make
walking and biking to school
easier for children and more
acceptable to their parents,”
Mn/DOT Commissioner Tom
Sorel said at the time the
grants were announced. “The
grants will mean safety im-
provements in routes to
school so students will be
more inclined to walk to
school. And walking to
school is another way to in-
crease exercise for healthier
Overall, there were 82 ap-
plications representing $83
million in projects.
Local Project
The largest portion of the
project will be along both
sides of Second Avenue
Northwest where sidewalks
will be improved or added to
create continuous sidewalk
from Adams Street to High-
way 5. The project will also
tie into the Prairie Line Trail
segment, which is scheduled
for 2014. That portion will
include St. Paul’s Lutheran
Three alternate segments to
the project, which lead from
the Sibley East athletic com-
plex, were not funded. One or
more of these alternate seg-
ments could be completed de-
pending on the outcome of
the overall bid.
The project has to be com-
pleted by the end of 2013.
The City Council unani-
mously approved a motion to
approve the 2013 sealcoating
plan and advertise for bids.
The City Council made the
move after a presentation
from Femrite and Street Su-
perintendent Jason Lovaas.
The City Council, accord-
ing to Femrite, has set aside
$100,000 in its budget for
sealcoating. He added that the
city has a great sealcoating
program and it is best to seal-
coat streets every five to
seven years.
Femrite and Lovaas will
look at past projects and de-
termine the areas for 2013.
The City Council, accord-
ing to Femrite, is scheduled
to open bids on Thursday,
July 11 and award bids on
Monday, July 15.
The project, he added, will
be completed by Saturday,
Aug. 31.
Bids & Repairs
The City Council unani-
mously approved a motion to
authorize the advertisement
of sealed bids for the sale of
the 1998 4W Bravada.
In another move, the City
Council unanimously ap-
proved a motion to authorize
up to $11,000 for repairs to
the street sweeper.
The move was referred to
as a short-term fix.
The City Council, in anoth-
er matter, unanimously ap-
proved a motion to place up
to four “Slow Children Play-
ing” signs along the east and
west ends of Henderson
The City Council will hold
its next regular meeting at
6:30 p.m. Monday, July 1.
The Arlington City Office
will be closed on Thursday,
July 4 due to the Independ-
ence Day holiday, according
to City Administrator Liza

The Sibley East School
Board approved a resolution
to accept a mediated settle-
ment agreement relating to
litigation in the ongoing
M.K.M vs. Kevin Jones and
Independent School District
(ISD) # 2310 (Sibley East) at
its regular monthly board
meeting on Monday night,
June 17.

The total payout amount of
the settlement is $309,553.02,
according to the court settle-
ment documents.
The settlement releases the
district from any liability in
the matter.
According to the settlement
agreement, Sibley East will
be liable for $50,000 in cash,
which will be taken out of the
general fund.
EMCASCO, an insurance
company for the district will
pay $25,000 and Continental
Western Insurance Company,
the insurance company used
by the district until July 31,
2008, will pay up to
Periodic payments will be
distributed to the plaintiffs in
the form of annuity on March
17, 2019, and March 17,
2027, in the amount of
$30,000 each and a $70,000
lump sum payment on March
17, 2047.
The present value of the
annuity is $70,446.98 which

for their respective legal fees.
The final bill has not been
received from Knutson,
Flynn & Deans, P. A. the law
firm retained by the board to
protect its interest in this mat-
ter. As of the date of the last

stipend of $3,000, the district,
to date, has paid $5,008 to
Nerud for fees associated di-
rectly to this matter.
The board approved the
hiring of Knutson, Flynn &
Deans, P. A. at the May 2012
meeting under the urging of

as the Sibley East transporta-
tion director in late December
of 2008, was charged with
five counts of first degree
criminal sexual conduct in
Sibley County District Court
in October 2008.
The charges were in con-
nection with a then alleged
sexual relationship between
Jones and a then 15-year-old
female student.
He was also charged with
one felony count of harass-
ment -- violation of a re-
straining order/falsely imper-
sonating another person in
Sibley County District Court
in March 2009.
Jones pleaded guilty to one
count of first degree criminal
sexual conduct in Sibley

also pleaded guilty to an
amended misdemeanor
charge of violation of an
order for protection at that
time. Other charges were dis-
He was sentenced to serve
144 months (12 years) in
state prison.
Appeal attempts by Jones
have been denied.

In either the best or worst
case scenario, the Affordable
Care Act (ACA) will have a
substantial cost impact on
Sibley County, reported
County Administrator Matt
Jaunich at the Tuesday, June
11 meeting of commissioners.
As the county enters into
the planning season on the
2014 budget, one item of
concern expressed by the
commissioners surrounds the
potential cost impact to the
county when most of the pro-
visions of the health care law
begin Jan. 1, 2014.
The law addressed several
different factors regarding
healthcare including the cre-
ation of health insurance ex-
changes, individual mandates
to purchase insurance, en-
hanced federal match for
health care systems modern-
ization and many other fac-
Jaunich said the cost esti-
mate is based on information
he could acquire. Passed at
the federal level, administra-
tion of the 2,800 page law
will be carried out at the
county level.
“We realize we need to hire
two additional staff members
in public health/human serv-
ices to account for the in-
creased work load,” said Jau-
nich about an estimated addi-
tion of 500 clients. “The cost
to the county would be about
$38,715 after at least 50 per-
cent is covered by federal
matching dollars. We will
start to incur costs in October,
which are not budgeted for.”
The other factor involves
eligibility for employee
health insurance. Since the
county is an employer with
50 or more full-time workers,
it must offer health coverage
to all employees working
more than 30 hours per week.
Failure to do this may result
in an annual penalty of
$2,000 per full-time employ-
Also beginning Jan. 1 is the
requirement that large em-
ployers like the county pro-
vide affordable health cover-
age from a premium contri-
bution standpoint. The penal-
ty is $3,000 per full-time em-
ployee who receives a gov-
ernment premium subsidy.
Jaunich said 22 Sibley
County employees are poten-
tially affected by the 30-hour
per week mandate under the
ACA that are currently not
offered county health insur-
“The worst case scenario
has every employee taking
county insurance at the fami-
ly level,” said Jaunich. “In
this case, county health insur-
ance costs are expected to in-
crease by over $200,000 a
year. This number could be
lower assuming not all eligi-
ble employees take the family
coverage or any insurance at
In his best case scenario,
Jaunich estimated the librari-
ans, attorneys and a building
maintenance worker from his
calculation for various rea-
sons. If the remaining 11 eli-
gible employees take county
insurance at the
individual/single level, the
estimated cost increase is
more than $76,000 a year.
“When you include the
costs of hiring additional em-
ployees and the likely in-
crease of employees to the
county’s health insurance
plan, we are looking at a
worst case scenario costing
the county somewhere in the
area of $239,000,” said Jau-
nich in his report’s conclu-
sion. “Our best case scenario
shows county costs in the
area of $115,000. Realistical-
ly speaking, I think the ACA
will likely cost the county in
the range of $100,000 to
The best case situation in-
volves some employees de-
ciding to opt out and not re-
ceive insurance, which may
be covered by a spouse. Jau-
nich said the county will look
at a county health insurance

Amateur radio operators
will operate under the aus-
pices of emergency condi-
tions at Memorial Park in Ar-
lington from 1 p.m. Saturday,
June 22 through 1 p.m. Sun-
day, June 23, according to
Don Burgess.
This is the National Field
Day for amateur radio people
as they practice emergency
communications throughout
the country and the world.
Ham radio will be setting up
radio stations in unusual loca-
tions and making contact
with others as a display of
their emergency communica-
tions capabilities.
“In this past year alone,
ham radio operators have
made headlines with their
work in the wildfires, floods,
storms, tornadoes and other
crises around the country,”
said Burgess, who is
SMARTS Club President and
State Assistant Emergency
Coordinator for Amateur
Radio Emergency Services.
“The hams provide emer-
gency communications for
many government and civic
organizations in disasters. In
addition, they provide supple-
mental communications when
normal systems are rendered
inoperable or overloaded.”
Hams have been called,
“The people behind the cur-
tain that made the heroes look
good.” Like most communi-
ties and towns in Sibley and
Carver counties, they don’t
expect a major emergency,
but they happen, and losing
communications quickly can
turn an emergency into a real
disaster, according to
Local and area dignitaries
have been invited to attend
the event in Arlington.
“Any and all residents are
encouraged to stop and drop
by and learn more about ama-
teur radio and how we serve
our communities in time of
need,” said Burgess.
He added, “This year ’s
event should be fun and is
also a validation to the hun-
dreds of amateur radio volun-
teers who have spent thou-
sands of hours providing
emergency communications,
public service work and other
benefits throughout our com-
munity and region.”
People who would like

Town & Country Days
are poorly attended
Our View: Arli-Dazzle should
become the town celebration
Guest Columns
The leadership of the Arlington Area Chamber of Commerce is
trying hard to put its best spin on the recent Town & Country Days
celebration. In an initial e-mail early this week, the Chamber leader-
ship reported that the town celebration “went very well” and was a
It would be wonderful if that were the case, but that report could
not be further from the truth. The Breakfast on the Farm event,
Move Strong Walk/Run and The Newlywed Game were the most
popular events and well attended. However, attendance at the other
events was rather poor.
Only 30-plus people attended the band last Friday night. The kick-
ball tournament was cancelled on Saturday morning. The puppet
show drew only 15 kids on Saturday afternoon. The inflatable
bouncers were something new, but gained little attention from
roughly 50 youngsters on the same afternoon. The rain certainly did
not help matters on Saturday afternoon. The band was poorly attend-
ed on Saturday night and the crowd was considerably down on Sun-
day afternoon. The bean bag tournament was also cancelled late that
same afternoon. It is difficult to attach a word like success to these
The simple truth is Arlington, other than its 150th anniversary a
few years back, has struggled with its summer celebration on Main
Street and at Four Seasons Park during the past decade.
A simple solution that the Chamber should seriously consider is to
discontinue the summer celebration and designate the Arli-Dazzle as
the town celebration. The Chamber could place additional energies
and resources into this already successful winter celebration where
the variety of activities draw large crowds of people from all over
the area.
The coronation could be rolled into the winter celebration while a
“Dashing Through The Snow” walk/run could be added to the festiv-
ities as well. A much smaller and more affordable raffle could also
be part of the winter celebration. The popular Breakfast on the Farm
could remain as a stand alone event in June. The ideas are endless.

The dust is finally settling on the
2013 legislative session. Though the
session adjourned almost a month
ago, Minnesotans are just now get-
ting a clearer view of what one-
party rule has wrought. And the
view is not pretty.
Capitol observers will recall the
chaos and disorder in the final days
of session, as legislators scrambled
to finalize the long-delayed budget
and tax bills. Ultimately, the legisla-
ture would finish its work just a few
minutes before the deadline of mid-
night on May 20, but only by limit-
ing debate and forcing rushed votes
on several huge conference commit-
tee reports, allowing no time for
scrutiny by the public, news media,
or legislative minorities. It turns out
that was by design.
As Nancy Pelosi would say, the
legislature had to pass the bills to
find out what’s in them. And what
the bills have are bailouts, boondog-
gles, and (in keeping with the theme
of the 2013 session) massive tax
In short, the final days of the 2013
session were effectively a session
unto itself; call it the Secret Session,
in which bad policy that could not
withstand public scrutiny was quiet-
ly and surreptitiously inserted into
legislation. Among the many costly
provisions that legislators snuck into
bills in the dead of night are several
that received virtually no legislative
debate all year:
Gift tax and estate tax changes –
As if Minnesota wasn’t already
enough of a tax outlier, Governor
Dayton and the legislature made
Minnesota just the second state in
the nation to institute a gift tax. The
gift tax will be applied at a 10 per-
cent flat rate after a $100,000 life-
time credit against the tax. In addi-
tion, gifts made within three years of
a person’s death can be taxable
under the state’s revamped estate
tax. Not only did Dayton and the
legislature raise taxes on the dead,
they made it retroactive.
Warehousing and storage tax – At
the end of session, lawmakers re-
vived portions of the Governor’s
universally panned sales tax plan,
applying the sales tax to a number of
targeted business services, including
the sale of telecommunications
equipment. But the most controver-
sy has been generated by the state’s
new warehousing tax. In the words
of one Star Tribune columnist, "the
tax on warehouse firms and a few
other industries apparently passed
while their lobbyists on guard at the
Capitol that day were looking the
other way". Well, the tax now has
the undivided attention of logistics
firms and others, and some of them
are already considering leaving the
state. Even many tax-happy legisla-
tors were skittish about imposing the
tax too quickly, choosing to delay it
until April 2014.
New $89.5 million office building
for senate offices – A new "state-of-
the-art" office building for senators
was one of the many surprise provi-
sions slipped into the tax bill in the
waning hours of the session. In fact,
according to the Minneapolis/St.
Paul Business Journal, "the only
money that’s been approved is $3
million for designs, but even that es-
caped the notice of many…part of a
379-page tax bill and was inserted
with little discussion". By utilizing a
lease-purchase arrangement, legisla-
tive leaders effectively hid the cost
of this project. The new senate of-
fice building will undoubtedly have
some of the nicest smoke-filled back
rooms that taxpayer money can buy.
$33 million bailout for Minneapo-
lis library – And finally, yet another
"last-minute addition to the state tax
bill": a $33 million bailout for the
downtown Minneapolis library.
Why? According to the Star Trib-
une, "The addition to the tax bill
was a tit-for-tat of sorts. It came
after the state agreed to forgive
loans on the Xcel Energy Center, lo-
cated in St. Paul." In other words,
Minneapolis saw St. Paul get a
bailout, then went to the legislature
and said "me too!"
The Secret Session would be bad
enough on its own, but it comes on
top of the personal income tax hike
that gives Minnesota the second
highest rate (for comparable income
levels) in the nation; a regressive
cigarette tax hike of $1.60 per pack
that more than doubles the current
tax; bailouts for St. Paul and Duluth
teachers’ pension funds; permanent
state spending increases on K-12 ed-
ucation and LGA (among other
areas) without offering any substan-
tive reforms in return.
It was an ugly end to a disastrous
session, and what Minnesotans saw
(or didn’t see) was the antithesis of
open and transparent government.
Worst of all, as the dust continues to
settle, taxpayers may learn of even
more surprises.
Bailouts, boondoggles and backroom deals
By Lee H. Hamilton
I’ve noticed a recurring question
as I talk to people about Congress.
What can be done, they wonder, to
get Congress back on track? Is our
national legislature capable of seri-
ous policy making? At a time when
polls say that jobs and the economy
are Americans’ chief concern, Con-
gress has not passed a single piece
of economic legislation. Instead, it’s
focused on investigations. It’s an in-
stitution with very little to show for
its efforts.
There’s a reason for this. Few leg-
islators know how to make it work
any more — respect the legislative
process and know it intimately, have
mastered the substantive and proce-
dural details, and have the political
savvy and skill to move a bill to en-
How can Congress improve? A
few procedural fixes might help, but
the real answer is actually pretty
simple: change the way members of
Congress work.
First, they need to put in more
time legislating on the major chal-
lenges facing the country. Only
twice this year has Congress been in
session for four weeks straight. Its
members spend too much of each
week at home campaigning and
meeting with constituents, and don’t
use their limited time in Washington
well: much of it goes to meeting
lobbyists, legislating on minor if not
trivial matters, making the rounds of
receptions, and raising funds.
Members have few occasions to
get to know one another except in
the confrontational settings of com-
mittee rooms and the floor of their
chamber, and as a result they don’t
know how to work together. Just as
dispiriting, they know even less
about what we sent them there to do:
crafting and enacting legislation. It
takes skill and perseverance to cre-
ate meaningful policies that forge
common ground among competing
interests and ideologies. The time-
consuming, difficult work of legis-
lating on complex issues is becom-
ing a lost art.
To begin restoring it, members
have to remember that they are a
separate, co-equal branch of govern-
ment. They’ve allowed Congress to
become a reactive body. It takes its
cues from the president — either in
deference to him or in opposition to
him, but always with reference to
him. Capitol Hill should be an en-
gine of creative policy-making and
inquiry, not the place that dynamic
lawmaking withers.
This can’t happen, however, if
members of Congress continue put-
ting politics ahead of policy making.
Many of the bills passed today in
one chamber or the other are not
even taken up by the other body.
They are posturing, not legislating.
I’m not naive. Politics is always
going to be important, but it ought
not dominate lawmakers’ actions.
They can be politicians at election
time, but once they reach Capitol
Hill our Constitution expects them

ciety traveled to New Auburn
for their May meeting, ac-
cording to Curator Sharon
The group met at the City
Hall for a presentation on the
history of New Auburn.
Kathy Ringo and others are
trying to establish a New
Auburn Historical Society.
They have been researching
New Auburn history and col-
lecting historic items. These
items need a home and the
committee is currently
searching for a space to store
and display these items and to
make them available for visi-
tors to view upon their arrival
to the city.
On Aug. 4, 1854, New
Auburn was registered as a
city, so named because many
of the residents came from
Auburn, New York. There
was another site with a gener-
al store in the present site of
the High Island Cemetery, but
failure to make improve-
ments, according to the law,
caused its demise and New
Auburn was incorporated in
1856. The town was built
near the lake called High Is-
land pertaining to the high is-
land in the lake fully visible
from the edge of town. Na-
tive Americans would camp
in the area between this lake
and Shilling Lake, to the
north, during October wild
rice harvests. The town also
became a stagecoach stop be-
tween Henderson and Glen-
coe. These facts were per-
haps unknown to many, but
Kathy and her crew are deter-
mined to make the history
come alive in New Auburn.

cal Society will hold its next

Arrangements are being made
by the directors of the Arlington
Park Association to hold a good
old fashioned picnic at the park
on Monday, July 5. At the last
annual meeting of the Park As-
sociation the shareholders rec-
ommended that the board of di-
rectors arrange for a picnic
sometime during the summer,
and since Arlington will not
have a 4th of July celebration
this year, it was decided to hold
this picnic on the 5th. There will
be a program consisting of
songs, 4th of July orations and
music after which a ball game,
foot races and other amusements
will be provided for young and
old. Also, a flag parade of sever-
al hundred boys and girls carry-
ing “Old Glory” is planned.

The 83-year-old town hall of
Arlington Township has been
moved from its location at the
intersection of Henderson Road
and the railroad tracks. It is now
located about a hundred yards to
the southeast on Henderson
Road, across from the migrant
labor camp. The township ex-

order to acquire the new site. At
the old location there was a con-
flict of parking and traffic when
a township election was held
while the factory was running.
Peas will be canned for the
first time at the Big Stone Can-
ning factory here starting next
week. The pea run is expected to

Men’s Health throughout the
The purpose of Men’s
Health Month is to heighten
the awareness of preventable
health problems and encour-
age early detection and treat-
ment of disease among men
and boys. This month gives
health care providers, public
policy makers, the media, and
individuals an opportunity to
encourage men and boys to
seek regular medical advice
and early treatment for dis-
ease and injury. The response
has been overwhelming with
thousands of awareness activ-
ities in the USA and around
the globe.
While the life-expectancy
gap between men and women
has decreased, it's no secret
that men still need to pay
more attention to their bodies.
Men have greater risk factors
than women; many of these
factors are controllable. For
example, men tend to smoke
and drink more than women.
They don't seek medical help
as often as women. There are
also health conditions that
only affect men and many of
the major health risks that
men have can be prevented
and treated with early diagno-
sis. Screening tests can find
diseases early, when they are
easier to treat. It's important
to have regular checkups and
Make healthy lifestyle
choices, such as eating a
healthy diet and including
physical activity in your daily
routine. It's also important to
manage risky behavior, such

cautions — such as using

This is the time of year
when young animals are scam-
pering about lawns, roadsides
and just about everywhere else
in Minnesota, according to the
Department of Natural Re-
sources (DNR).
Birds are falling out of their
nests and many types of wild
baby animals can be mistaken
as abandoned or lost. In reali-
ty, the mother is probably not
too far away and will soon re-
People should always leave
wild baby animals alone un-
less it can be verified that the
mother is dead or the animal is
seriously injured, said Carrol
Henderson, DNR nongame
wildlife program supervisor.
The parent is almost always
Many small animals like
rabbits attend to their young
just a few minutes a day and
intentionally stay away from
their young to avoid drawing
the attention of predators. If
the animals are extremely
young and have been removed
from the nesting site, return
them to the nest as soon as
possible, Henderson said.
Birds should be handled the
same way. Sometimes nests
fill up as the birds grow, and
young birds get crowded out
before they are ready to leave.
These birds will usually do
fine because they will be fed
by their parents on the ground.
Only very young birds without
feathers should be picked up
and returned to the nest, Hen-
derson said. People should not
worry about getting human
scent on young birds when
placing them back in the nest
because birds have a poor
sense of smell.
Henderson also said people
should contain their dogs and
keep cats indoors during this
time of year. Curious pets can
disturb or harm young and
nesting animals, adding to fa-
“Many people do not know
what to do when they find an
injured or orphaned animal,”
Henderson said. “The process
is very difficult and intense.
Rehabbing wildlife can be dif-
ficult and complex. Many
hand-raised animals are not
good candidates for release
back into the wild.”
The public should never at-
tempt to raise wild birds or an-
imals themselves, Henderson
said. It is against the law for
anyone to keep wild animals
without proper training and
DNR licensing. In captivity,
most wild animals are very
fragile, traumatize easily and
have complex nutritional
needs. They can die suddenly.
DNR advises public to let wildlife remain wild

The Minnesota State Fair
and the Minnesota Farm Bu-
reau will recognize 184 Min-
nesota farms as 2013 Century
Qualifying farms have
been in continuous family
ownership for at least 100
years and are 50 acres or
more. Century Farm families
receive a commemorative
sign, as well as a certificate
signed by the State Fair and
Minnesota Farm Bureau pres-
idents and Governor Mark
Dayton. Since the program
began in 1976, more than
9,700 Minnesota farms have
been recognized as Century
There are four farms in
Sibley County that will be
recognized as 2013 Century
Farms. They are Kenneth
Mueller, 1873, Arlington;
Reuben and Dorene and
Michael & Kris Willmsen,
1913, Arlington; William and
Pauline Fahey, 1892, Belle
Plaine; and Burton and
Nancy Spaude, 1913, Arling-
Century Farms to be recognized
to be policy makers and legis-
lators. So do ordinary Ameri-
cans. The partisan maneuver-
ing, the compulsion to send a
message rather than legislate,
and the lack of solid accom-
plishment have driven Ameri-
cans’ disdain for Congress to
record highs.
If lawmakers want to re-
verse this, they need to re-
order their priorities. They’ll
rein in their partisan instincts.
They’ll spend less time ask-
ing for money — often from
the people affected by the
bills they’re voting on — and
more on building friendships
and relationships among col-
leagues, especially of the op-
posite party, who can help
them enact legislation.
They’ll ignore trivial bills that
give the appearance of action
but accomplish little, and
learn how to do rigorous
oversight, with truth-seeking
hearings that are fair and bal-
They’ll master the legisla-
tive process, rather than dele-
gating bill-writing and even
strategy to staff. They’ll send
their polite regrets to the invi-
tations that pour in for recep-
tions, dinners, media appear-
ances, and all the other dis-
tractions that keep a member
of Congress busy, and bear
down on the work their con-
stituents sent them to pursue:
crafting legislation, debating
bills, deliberating with their
colleagues, and reaching con-
sensus on the serious prob-
lems confronting the country.
Here’s the most important
part: they don’t need legisla-
tion or constitutional amend-
ments or procedural fixes or
even years of seniority to
start. They just need to go to
work and make the Congress
and our representative democ-
racy effective at serving the
best interests of the country.
Lee Hamilton is Director of
the Center on Congress at In-
diana University. He was a
member of the U.S. House of
Representatives for 34 years.

eligibility policy.
Currently, the county does
not allow full-time eligible
employees to opt out of the
insurance policy.
Jaunich asked, “Are we
going to extend this rule to
those working less than 40
hours, but more than 30?” The
administrator suggested he
take a poll of potential em-
ployees that will be added to
the county’s health insurance
plan to see if they would take
it, or at what level, since it
would help in the budgeting.
County Commissioner Bill
Pinske said the cost increase
could be more than the total
increase in county program
aid it will be getting from the
state. “I think we will have to
change our insurance bylaws,”
said Pinske.
County Commissioner Jim
Swanson noted that he can’t
opt out of the county insur-
ance policy even though he
does not need it. Jaunich said
under the ACA an employee
can opt out if they prove they
have other insurance.
County Commissioner
Harold Pettis wondered if em-
ployees working 30 hours can
go to full-time instead of hir-
ing two new full-time em-
ployees. Jaunich said it is pos-
sible, but the work is specific
and may not match the skills
of other employees.
Pinske noted the county in-
surance program is a joint
venture with McLeod County
and each county would have
to vote on any changes in pol-
icy. He said since the two
boards will be meeting July
11, the issue can be brought
up at that time.
Human Resource Director
Roseann Nagel said, “The
whole insurance industry is
being turned upside down

Sibley FSA
The excessive rainfall has
been a point of frustration for
many as you try to get your
crops planted this spring. In
Sibley County, the final plant-
ing date for corn was May 31
and the final planting date for
soybeans was June 10.
Prevented planting occurs
when a crop cannot be planted
during the established planting
period because of a natural
disaster. Prevented planting
reports (CCC-576) must be
filed with FSA within 15 cal-
endar days after the final
planting date to be considered
timely filed. Final planting
dates will vary by crop and
county. Once a CCC-576 has
been submitted, it cannot be
withdrawn or revised, so come
prepared with the planting date
and the actual number of acres
affected. Producers who late-
file may be assessed a fee and
a field inspection may be re-
quired. Late-filed CCC-576
reports are possible on one
condition; the prevented plant-
ed acreage is timely reported
to RMA. Please check with
your crop insurance agent for
specific date information re-
garding RMA timely filed re-
Final Planting Dates/Dead-
line to file Prevented Planting
with FSA:
Corn - May 31/June 17
Soybeans - June 10/June 25
Double Crop (Soybeans fol-
lowing Fruits and Vegetables)
– July 5/July 22
(Please contact our office
for information regarding
crops not listed above.)
Please Note: Minnesota has
requested and received an ex-
tension of the prevented plant-
ing filing deadline. The 2013
prevented planting filing dead-
line is extended from the 15
calendar days after the final
planting date to July 15, 2013.
If you have prevented planted
acres in another state, please
contact your FSA office in that
state to determine whether or
not they have received an ex-
tension of this deadline as
Producers are also reminded
if they have failed acreage (a
crop was planted and subse-
quently fails) they should re-
port the affected acres on a Re-
port of Acreage (FSA-578) and
file a Failed Acreage report
(CCC-576) at the Sibley Coun-
ty FSA Office before the crop
is destroyed. As with prevent-
ed planting, once a CCC-576
has been submitted, it cannot
be withdrawn or revised, so
come prepared with the plant-
ing date and the actual number
of acres affected. This will
allow FSA to get an accurate
report of how many failed
acres are in each county. This
documentation will also help
in determining the need for a
disaster designation.
Too wet to plant? Failed acres?
The Arlington Conquerors
were thinking warm thoughts
and preparing for the fair at
their meeting on Monday,
June 10.
The club covered every-
thing it needs to know about
the fair. Club members talked
about their Community Pride
Project, club banner, the fair
clean up, food stand shift, and
premium books.
After the meeting, club
members got down and dirty
as they planted their Commu-
nity Pride sign on Highway 5.
The next meeting will be
held in the Senior Citizens

Club members will then head
out on our tours. Upon their
return, there will be a potluck

The Catholic Diocese of
New Ulm has been named in
a lawsuit alleging sexual
abuse of a minor against Fa-
ther Francis Markey, a de-
ceased priest of the Diocese
of Clogher, Ireland, accord-
ing to a news release from the
Diocese of New Ulm.
The lawsuit, filed June 17
in the Fifth Judicial District
Court for the State of Min-
nesota, names the Diocese of
New Ulm as the defendant.
In December of 1981, Fa-
ther Markey came to Will-
mar, located in the Diocese of
New Ulm. He had applied for
and was accepted to partici-
pate in a Clinical Pastoral Ed-
ucation (CPE) program at
Willmar State Hospital.
While participating in that
program, he did some tempo-
rary parish work in the dio-
For about three months in
the spring of 1982, Father
Markey served at the Church
of St. Andrew in Granite
Falls, following the death of
the church’s pastor and be-
fore the new pastor began his
assignment there. Father Mar-
key left the Diocese of New
Ulm in June of 1982. Since
that time, Father Markey did
not live in or serve the dio-
cese in any capacity. Father
Markey died in 2012.
In January of 2011, the
Diocese of New Ulm was
named in a lawsuit alleging
sexual abuse of a minor by
Father Markey.
The Diocese of New Ulm
deeply regrets the long-last-
ing and devastating effects of
sexual misconduct on the part
of clergy. Such misconduct
requires positive action on
our part and we have been
strengthening our systems
and procedures in order to ad-
dress this grave issue by fol-
lowing the U. S. bishops’
“Charter for the Protection of
Children and Young People,”
established in June 2002, ac-
cording to the news release.
The Diocese of New Ulm
has been diligent in its efforts
to establish a safe environ-
ment program which educates
clergy, teachers, parents and
students, and helps them
identify and prevent sexual
misconduct. We are commit-
ted to offer help and healing
to anyone who has been a
victim of sexual misconduct
and to prevent this terrible
crime in the diocese, accord-
ing to the news release. Any-
one who has suffered sexual
abuse, exploitation or harass-
ment by a priest, deacon, pas-
tor or pastoral administrator
of the Diocese of New Ulm is
asked to report such miscon-
duct to the Victim Assistance
Coordinator or the Bishop’s
Delegate in Matters Pertain-
ing to Sexual Misconduct,

Harriet Traxler, author of
“The Barns of Sibley Coun-
ty,” has published another
book called “A Murder In
Faxon, according to an article
in the Belle Plaine Herald.
The book is about Harriet’s
great uncle, Michael Collins,
who was murdered in 1891
on the farm where Harriet
lived as a child. It wasn’t
until she was in her teens that
she found out about it from
an old Henderson newspaper
clipping she found in an old
recipe book.
Her books are sold at the
Sibley County Historical So-
ciety with proceeds going to
the museum.
