Arlington residents dealt
with flooded basements and
property damage after the
area was drenched with his-
toric rains late Wednesday
night, June 18, into Thursday
morning, June 19.
A majority of residents re-
ported that the community re-
ceived seven-plus inches of
rain during a period of 10 to
12 hours. The hardest rain fell
between 3 a.m. and 7 a.m.
and again after a brief break.
With the City of Arlington
short staffed, the Arlington
Fire Department was called
out because intersections and
streets began to flood around
4 a. m., according to Fire
Chief John Zaske.
The fire department, he
said, unclogged the same
storm drain catch basins over
and over again.
During this time, a number
of residents began to experi-
ence flooded basements as
water came up through floor
drains. Several residents also
endured sewage in their base-
ments as the sanitary sewer
backed up.
After a brief break, the fire
department was called out
again around 9 a.m.
Arlington firefighter and
Emergency Manager Tim
Haggenmiller and Zaske,
along with assistance from
Arlington Police Chief Cory
Danner, partnered to take
safety precautions and
limit/prevent further damage
in the community.
A lot of streets were barri-
caded throughout the day on
Thursday, June 19, according
to Zaske.
Water from the High Island
Creek began to overflow and
401st Avenue was eventually
closed to traffic. The road re-
mained closed on Thursday,
June 19 and Friday, June 20.
It reopened on Saturday
morning, June 21, but water
began to flow over the road
again on Tuesday morning,
June 24, and into Wednesday
morning, June 25.
The same problem oc-
curred at the bridge along the
east end of East Brooks
Street. The road was immedi-
ately closed and will not be
reopened until the bridge has
been inspected, according to
Zaske and Haggenmiller.
Members of the fire depart-
ment, during their second call
out on Thursday morning,
June 19, began to sandbag
between the High Island
Creek and the backyards of
three residences along the
400 block of Creekview
Lane.
Sandbags were also placed
around the overflowing ditch
near The Quick Shop later in
the day.
“Nobody turned us down
when we asked people to fill
sandbags,” said Zaske. “That
was huge.”
The Arlington Fire Depart-
ment also responded to a
minor electrical fire at the
Marilyn Ronning residence
north of town at 2:50 p.m.
Thursday, June 19, Zaske
said. The electrical fire was
caused by the flooding condi-
tions. The fire department
was on the scene for approxi-
mately 35 minutes.
The Arlington Fire Depart-
ment was eventually cleared
and back at the fire hall at 6
p.m., according to Zaske.
The Arlington Baseball
Park also had standing water
primarily in right field just
one day before the annual
Miller High Life Invitational.
After some work on the field
and a change of events, the
tournament started one day
late on Saturday, June 21 and
was completed on Sunday
night, June 22.
Throughout the day on
Thursday, June 19 and over
the next few days, many resi-
dents had the difficult and
messy task to remove water
from their basements and
begin the clean up effort.
Sump pumps received a good
work out.
Basement carpet and furni-
ture were a common sight on
many driveways in the com-
munity.
On Saturday morning, June
21, the City of Arlington had
two huge dumpsters placed in
the City Parking Lot for resi-
dents to toss their carpet, fur-
niture and other items dam-
aged during the flood. After
the dumpsters were filled,
new dumpsters were brought
to the area.
“The City of Arlington is
deeply appreciative of the ef-
forts from its volunteer fire-
fighters and emergency serv-
ices staff in protecting our
city during last week’s torren-
tial weather conditions,” said
Arlington City Administrator
Liza Donabauer. “They pro-
tected our streets during the
high winds, downed trees and
power lines on June 14 and
they cleared our storm sewers
and protected private proper-
ty during the torrential down-
pours on June 19. The city is
also appreciative of the ef-
forts from its community of
volunteers from making sand-
wiches to filling sandbags, to
various clean-up efforts
throughout our city. We are
empathetic to our community
residents who have experi-
enced storm damage. Our en-
tire community is working
through this together.”
As the clean up efforts con-
tinue, local and area residents
will keep their eyes on the
rising High Island Creek, fu-
ture weather forecasts and
saturated ground.
In addition, Zaske said the
road closures will make it dif-
ficult for the Arlington Fire
Department in the rural areas.
In the case of a fire, Zaske
asked rural residents to tell
the sheriff’s dispatch center
which roads are open on the
way to their farm or rural res-
idence.
Green Isle
Although it also received
heavy rains, the Green Isle
community was much more
fortunate than Arlington and
other surrounding towns on
Thursday, June 19, according
to Green Isle Fire Chief Scott
Vos and Green Isle City Clerk
Bert Panning.
Many homes had some
minor basement flooding and
a couple experienced sewer
back up, according to Pan-
ning.
Church Street and Gloria
Avenue were the hardest hit
as far as standing water, Pan-
ning said. Vos added that
Church Street was the main
area of concern.
The Green Isle Fire Depart-
ment was paged out at 9:30
a.m. and finished pumping at
8 p.m.
In addition to two pumper
trucks, the Green Isle Fire
Department received assis-
tance of several other people.
A hydraulic pump was se-
cured and took the water
down to an acceptable level
for the evening, according to
Vos. He added that Mother
Nature took over from there.
The Green Isle Baseball
Park had a lot of standing
water which created a prob-
lem for the annual Miller Lite
Invitational. After some work
on the field and with some
modifications, the tournament
started late, but was complete
on Sunday night, June 22.
The Lions Park, because it
sits so low, had a lot of stand-
ing water, Panning said. It
was enough water to accom-
modate a fairly large pedal
boat. No other damage was
noticed or reported at this
park.
Except for a couple of ex-
ceptions, Panning said the
Green Isle community was
very fortunate compared to
other communities and sur-
vived the event without any
major problems.
Arlington and Green Isle hit by
torrential rain, major flooding
By Dave Pedersen
Correspondent
The impact of recent mas-
sive rain amounts in Sibley
County could have long term
ramifications it was reported
at the meeting of the Board of
Commissioners on Tuesday,
June 24.
Tim Becker, Public Works
Director, reported excessive
public damage to roads and
infrastructure, along with the
ditches and farmlands,
through flash floods through-
out the entire county. His
rough estimate put damage at
around $4 million.
The county board passed a
motion for a declaration of a
state of emergency, request-
ing federal and state funding.
To receive FEMA funds the
state must have at least $7.3
million in damage state-wide.
“We identified 43 sites
where damage occurred, but
we imagine the number may
grow,” said Becker. “A lot of
bridges are under water and
we don’t know what we will
find when water starts to re-
cede.”
Becker said a major area of
damage was on County Road
6 where a water flow failure
caused 300 feet of roadway
to be washed down the slope.
That will be about a million
and a half dollars to repair
and it could take a couple
years to get it fixed.
Rush River Park had three
to six feet of water flowing
through the entire park,
bringing with it several feet
of silt.
The Henderson Park road
bridge was hit by a large tree
in the stream, striking the
center pier. It took out the pil-
ing and the middle of the
bridge is sagging.
Many areas on County
Road 6 experienced mud
slides on the road and ditches
are entirely filled with silt.
The road is still under water
at the Minnesota River.
Becker said it was the
worst the county has ever
seen for mudslides. On Coun-
ty Road 12 there probably
were a dozen mud slides. He
added there are hazardous
conditions for the public and
advises getting help to stabi-
lize these areas as soon as
possible. More sections of
road could be lost if mudslide
areas are not addressed.
While Becker talked about
the numbers for structural
and financial loss, County
Commissioner Jim Nytes,
whose district includes Hen-
derson, related the emotional
impact of the events.
While getting emotional as
he spoke, Nytes talked about
his drive through some town-
ships Friday, June 20, and
seeing families vacated,
being helped by the Red
Cross.
“I saw a family with five
children standing alongside
the road with no place to go,”
Nytes said. “I watched
ravines washing away. It was
sad to see the recently fixed
up Highway 8 all beat up.”
When waters rose and
rushed, the call went out for
help and the National Guard
responded. Nytes said resi-
dents brought the guard
members ice cream and slop-
py joes.
Nytes said Governor Mark
Dayton came to view the
damage on Thursday, June
19, meeting with 15 area
leaders. It is estimated that 20
percent of the farm land is ei-
ther flooded or not planted.
Nytes added all of the hay
may be lost.
“We will have a disaster if
we lose the herds and it will
have long term economic im-
pact,” said Nytes. “I told the
Governor that without High-
way 19 Henderson will die.
The economy is severely im-
pacted when the road is
closed. It affects every turkey
or corn truck.”
Nytes said Highway 19
from the east could be closed
for a long time because areas
under the road were compro-
mised and nobody knows to
what extent.
“There will be no truck
traffic or commerce and it
will be a big hit to businesses
in Arlington, Gibbon and
Winthrop,” said Nytes. “The
long term impact of this will
include the exit of people in
the River Valley. Property
values and our tax base could
fall. Without the people we
are nothing.”
Emergency Management
Director Bryan Gorman said
New Auburn is dealing with a
rising lake level. The river in
Henderson may have crested
Tuesday morning, June 24.
Gorman said the state will
come out the week of July 7
to do a damage estimate and
then hold a preliminary as-
sessment meeting. He said it
is a very slow process.
FEMA funds would cover 75
percent of the cost, with 25
percent shared by the state
and county.
“Some work can’t be done
in house because repair work
is beyond our ability,” said
Becker. “We had a full con-
struction schedule before any
of this happened. We have to
start the process so we can
get it rebuilt within a year or
so.”
County Commissioner Joy
Cohrs said she has received
calls from angry farmers.
One land owner on a private
ditch said the DNR put in a
culvert to control the level on
Crane Lake, but did not
maintain it well. The rains
washed out the culvert and
water runs into the fields.
Cohrs asked County Attor-
ney David Schauer if the
county can file a lawsuit
against the DNR. Schauer
said the land owners on the
private ditch have the right to
file and not the county. He
added, “We don’t do private
actions on behalf of the peo-
ple.”
County Commissioner Jim
Swanson said he hopes the
people understand that it is
going to take some time.
Other Business
In other business, the board
approved the appointment of
Mark Niebuhr as Deputy
Emergency Management Di-
rector, a part-time position re-
quired by the state.
Also approved was the pro-
motional transfer of Carlos
Rodrigues from full-time dis-
patch/correctional officer to
dispatch/corrections sergeant.
Nora Gilson was hired as
full-time PH/HS elderly
waiver case manager. Sonia
Cruz is a full-time registered
nurse who is the first home
nurse in the county to be bi-
lingual.
The resignation of Gina
Sievert as part-time support
technician within the license
center was approved. County
Administrator Matt Jaunich
said since he started over a
year ago five or six part-time
workers in the license center
have resigned.
Impact of flood damage
could be long term in

Sibley County Relay For Life
The Survivor Lap was held during the conclusion of
the opening ceremony at the Sibley County Relay For
Life event on Friday night, June 20. The event was

lington. Honorary Survivor Jamie Grams Petzel is pic-
tured holding the banner on the far left. Over $36,000
was raised at the event and “donations are still com-
ing in,” according to co-chairpersons Jeri Odenthal
and Stacie Swenson.
The Mankato office of the
Minnesota Department of
Transportation continues to
advise no unnecessary travel
in areas along the Minnesota
River in south central Min-
nesota.
Highways being monitored
with the potential to be closed
on Tuesday night, June 24:
• Highway 22 Mankato to
St. Peter
• Highway 169 from
Mankato to St. Peter
Note: MnDOT officials set-
ting up for closure and detour
– watch for signs
Highways closed include:
• Highway 19 Henderson to
Highway 169 (closed June 19)
• Highway 93 Henderson to
Highway 169 (closed June 19)
• Highway 93 from High-
way 169 to LeSueur (closed

Le Sueur – outside north-
bound lane is closed due to a
temporary sand dike (restrict-
ed June 20)
• Highway 169 Mankato to
St. Peter SB one lane (restrict-
ed June 22 am)
Highways with recently re-
moved restrictions – now
open:

• Highway 22 between
Mankato and St. Peter (re-
opened June 20 – currently re-
stricted in southbound lane)
• Highway 19 west of Gay-
lord (opened June 21)
Statewide flood closures
can be found at
http://www.dot.state.mn.us/flo
od/.
Every flood is dangerous. If
people must travel, they
should follow these safe driv-
ing practices:
• Check www.511mn.org
before traveling for informa-
tion on road conditions, clo-
sures and detour routes.
• Expect the unexpected –
flash floods can occur any-
time, anywhere.
• Do not drive around barri-
cades or into flooded areas.
• If floodwaters rise around
your car, abandon the car and
move to higher ground, if you
can do so safely.
Six inches of water will
reach the bottom of most pas-
senger cars, causing loss of
control and possible stalling.
A foot of water will float
many vehicles. Two feet of
rushing water can carry away
most vehicles including sport
utility vehicles and pick-ups.
When a road is closed it is
illegal to travel in that area.
Motorists can be fined up to
$1,000 and/or 90 days in jail.
In addition, if travelers need
to be rescued from a closed
road, other expenses and
penalties will apply.

Flooding created a
lot of damage in
Arlington and Green Isle
Our View: Difficult times bring
out the best in people
Guest Columns
Go anywhere in Arlington and Green Isle and the first topic
brought up is the torrential rain that drenched the communi-
ties and surrounding area last Thursday. People talk about the
amount of rain, the water in the streets, road closures, flooded
basements and property damage.
One topic that cannot be overlooked is the number of volun-
teers and good samaritans who stepped up to help residents in
both towns. The stories about these volunteers and good
samaritans are endless. Here are just a few.
With the City of Arlington short staffed, the Arlington Fire
Department took control of the town early last Thursday
morning. People should never forget that some of these fire-
fighters left water in their own basements and sacrificed their
own property to serve the community in its time of need.
Volunteers from the Green Isle Fire Department also provid-
ed the same service in their community. In addition, the fire
department received equipment assistance from one individ-
ual and two businesses as firefighters pumped water from a
street.
One business in Arlington sent three of their employees to
help with the sandbagging efforts. Another business removed
a sidewalk to prevent further flooding into an assisted living
facility. One business owner on Main Street drove to another
city to purchase additional equipment that would later accom-
modate his customers back home.
A number of volunteers showed up to help fill sandbags in
Arlington. As Arlington Fire Chief John Zaske stated in the
front page article, everyone who was asked to volunteer
showed up to fill sandbags. Nobody said no.
Residents who did not have any basement flooding water
helped their neighbors and friends who needed assistance.
Residents from the rural areas also drove into town to offer
their help.
Difficult times always seem to bring out the best in people.
And that was surely witnessed in both communities last
Thursday.

Bob couldn’t believe it. He had

“Congratulations, Bob,” said the

“This is a two-part question,” he

Bob figured he would play it safe.
“I think I will try the second part of

and dedication to his job. He called
him over to the side, away from the
other workers and whispered, “I’m

tell anyone.”
The man whispered back to his
boss, “Don’t worry, I won’t say
anything. I’m just as ashamed of it

Not satisfied, the man immediate-

many seaside hotels in your area.
How will I recognize your establish-
ment?” he queried.
The response was immediate:
“It’s the one with all the broken
windows.”
By Amy Klobuchar
U.S. Senator
This month, major bipartisan leg-
islation was signed into law that will
give Minnesota’s waterways, ports,
flood protection, and economy a big
boost. The Water Resources Reform
and Development Act (WRRDA)
will deliver much-needed funding to
water resource projects across Min-
nesota that will help strengthen our
communities, our economy, and our
environment.
This law is not only a major victo-
ry for our state – it’s also a reminder
of what’s possible when both parties
put partisanship aside and focus on
doing the right thing. My hope is
that we can keep the momentum
going and usher in a new era of bi-
partisan cooperation to tackle anoth-
er looming infrastructure challenge:
our roads, bridges, and rail.
Passing WRRDA was an impor-
tant down payment on that effort.
The legislation includes my provi-
sion to help prevent the spread of in-
vasive carp by closing the Upper St.
Anthony Falls Lock, as well as a
provision supported by Senator Al
Franken, Representative Rick
Nolan, and myself that helps ensure
dredging and maintenance at the
Port of Duluth and addresses the
dredging backlog on the Great
Lakes. Working with Senators Heidi
Heitkamp and John Hoeven of
North Dakota, the bill also advances
the Fargo-Moorhead flood diversion
project that will give the region the
permanent flood protection it needs.
And with the work of Representa-
tive Collin Peterson, the bill also
helps move forward flood protection
for Roseau, which has endured dev-
astating floods in years past.
These provisions are critical to
our state’s water infrastructure, but
our work is far from finished. From
our roads to rail to bridges, we still
face enormous challenges in build-
ing the 21st century infrastructure
we need to export our goods and
keep our transportation safe.
The cracks in our broken trans-
portation system were tragically ex-
posed on August 1, 2007, when the
I-35W bridge collapsed into the
Mississippi River, killing thirteen
people and injuring many more. As I
said that day, a bridge should not
just fall down in the middle of
America.
And yet according to the Ameri-
can Society of Civil Engineers 2013
Report Card, the United States
scores a “D plus” on the overall con-
dition of our infrastructure. These
deficiencies are expected to increase
the cost of doing business by rough-
ly $430 billion over the next decade
and they pose a threat to public safe-
ty. On Highway 14 in southern Min-
nesota alone, more than 125 people
died in the last two decades.
That’s why we need to bring both
parties together to build a truly 21st
century transportation network.
We should start by shoring up the
Highway Trust Fund, which fi-
nances infrastructure projects across
the country. If Congress doesn’t act,
the Fund will go bankrupt in a mat-
ter of months, jeopardizing critical
projects and construction jobs and
creating paralyzing uncertainty for
businesses and local governments in
Minnesota. With our extremely short
construction season coming off a
long winter, this is particularly im-
portant to our state. Congress needs
to ensure certainty and address the
shortfall so that we don’t have to
slam the breaks on important trans-
portation projects.
The transportation bill we passed
in 2012 provided about $700 million
per year to Minnesota, which was
more than we had gotten in past
years. As Congress works on the
next transportation bill, I’ll push to
secure the highest level of funding
for Minnesota and work to ensure
communities have a say in how
funding is spent.
I’d also like to bring back the sim-
ple idea (with reforms) that mem-
bers of Congress have more of a say
in how transportation money is
spent in their states as opposed to
the current system, where every-
thing is delegated to the Administra-
tion and federal bureaucracy. I am
also a cosponsor of the bipartisan
BRIDGE Act which would establish
an Infrastructure Financing Authori-
ty to leverage federal funds with pri-
vate dollars to expand our overall
infrastructure in our transportation
networks and increase safety, im-
prove mobility, and ease congestion.
We passed WRRDA because both
parties put politics aside and focused
on solutions. Now, we have a
chance to bring that same bipartisan
approach to the task of improving
our infrastructure. That’s the right
thing to do – for the safety of our
families, the strength of our econo-
my, and the future of our state and
country.
Bipartisan momentum on building up our infrastructure

Minnesota voters can now
request an absentee ballot on-
line at mnvotes.org through a
new tool launched by the Of-
fice of the Minnesota Secre-
tary of State. The service al-
lows voters to apply for an
absentee ballot quickly and
easily without the need to
print, scan forms, and return
by mail, fax or email. A simi-
lar tool for military and over-
seas voters was introduced in
September 2013.
Voters may request an ab-
sentee ballot for both the Au-
gust 12 Primary Election and
November 4 General Elec-
tion. Ballots for those elec-
tions will be mailed when
they become available on
June 27 and September 19,
respectively.
“Providing online services
that are efficient and conven-
ient for voters leads to greater
voter participation, helping to
ensure every eligible voice
can be heard in our elec-
tions,” says Secretary of State
Mark Ritchie.
Ritchie adds the new tool
saves election officials’ time
and reduces errors by elimi-
nating the tasks of manually
entering voter data and inter-
preting handwriting.
Upon requesting an absen-
tee ballot, voters may use the
“Absentee Ballot Lookup”
tool at mnvotes.org to find
the status of their ballot, such
as when it was mailed, and if
their completed ballot was re-
ceived and accepted by their
local elections office.
Voters may continue to re-
quest absentee ballots by
mail, and vote absentee in
person at their county elec-
tions office, as well as a se-
lect number of cities.
“No Excuse” Needed
To Vote Absentee
The Office of the Secretary
of State expects an uptick in
absentee balloting in 2014 as
Minnesota voters no longer
need an excuse to vote absen-
tee, such as being ill or out of
their precinct on Election
Day. As a result, more voters
can vote early by absentee to
avoid long lines and waits at
the polling place.
In Minnesota’s last non-
presidential election in 2010,
there were 127,248 absentee
ballots cast, about 6 percent
of the total 2,123,369 votes
cast.
Eligible voters may learn
more about the absentee bal-
lot process at mnvotes.org.
How The “Request An
Absentee Ballot”
Tool Works
Voters requesting an absen-
tee ballot online complete the
online application at mn-
votes.org. Their information
is verified against data from
the state’s Driver and Vehicle
Services or Social Security
Administration. Local elec-
tion officials review the ap-
plication, and if approved,
send the voter their absentee
ballot so they may vote early.
More Voter Tools At
mnvotes.org
The new “Request Absen-
tee Ballot” tool joins a suite
of online applications provid-
ed by the Office of the Secre-
tary of State, including:
Voter Registration Lookup
— voters can check if they
are registered to vote at their
current address.
Online Voter Registration
— more than 4,000 voters
have successfully registered
online since September 2013.
Polling Place Finder —
voters can find where they
vote.
My Ballot — voters view
their sample ballot (available
on June 27 for the August 12
Primary Election) and can
find links to candidates’ web-
sites.
Absentee Ballot Lookup
— voters can find the status
of their absentee ballot.
2014 Is A
Significant Election Year
This election year, Min-
nesota voters will head to the
polls to decide a U.S. Senate
seat, all of Minnesota’s eight
U.S. House seats, as well as
governor and other state offi-
cers, and all Minnesota State
House seats. The 2014 elec-
tion will also include many
county commissioners, coun-
ty sheriffs, county attorneys,
auditors, treasurers and
recorders.
Key 2014 Election Dates

It’s been a challenging
week for our community;
heavy rains and wind have
caused extensive flooding
and damage in McLeod and
Sibley Counties, and both
have been declared under a
State of Emergency by Gov-
ernor Dayton.
I wanted to pass along
helpful links and information
for residents impacted by the
flooding. I will pass along
any further information I re-

ficials.
The Department of Com-
merce’s Consumer Response
Team (CRT) is available to
help consumers with ques-
tions, concerns, or complaints
following a damaging storm,
flood, or tornado. CRT ex-
perts help consumers under-
stand their rights, work with
their insurer to settle a claim,
and help Minnesotans make
informed insurance decisions
after a flood or storm dam-
ages their home, auto, or
property.
Consumers are urged to

Following recent rains
across the state, the Min-
nesota Department of Natu-
ral Resources is urging
boaters, paddlers and swim-
mers to think twice before
heading out on the water
right now.
People must be especial-
ly cautious around high
water; making sure they
wear a life jacket and are
aware of local flooding
conditions and alerts. Peo-
ple also should not venture
into flooded areas.
“Rivers, lakes and
streams around Minnesota
are extremely swollen and
that water is cooler than
normal,” said Kara Owens,
DNR boat and water safety
specialist. Water tempera-
tures around the metro are
hovering around 70 de-
grees, which is 5-10 de-
grees colder than normal.
“Stream and river cur-
rents are also extremely
strong and moving fast,
which many boaters and
swimmers are not used to,”
Owens said.
Boaters should also be
aware that there’s more de-
bris in the water. That in-
cludes both natural and
man-made objects that have
been swept into the river.
“Debris will often float
just at or below the sur-
face,” Owens said. “Hitting
a log at high speed could
result in damage to boats or
serious injuries.”
So far this year, three
people have died in boating
accidents compared to five
this time last year.
A no-wake zone is cur-
rently in effect on rivers
and lakes around the metro,
including the St. Croix
River from Taylors Falls to
Prescott, Prior Lake and
Lake Minnetonka. The
Minneapolis locks on the
Mississippi River are
closed to both recreational
and commercial traffic.
For more information,
visit the DNR website.
DNR warning: Waters are
dangerously high and fast
Heavy rains in portions of
northern Minnesota have
prompted the closure of some
off-highway vehicle (OHV)
trails and state forest roads,
the Minnesota Department of
Natural Resources said.
Some forest roads and
OHV trails are flooded, are
unstable due to soil saturation
or have washed out in sec-
tions, so several have been
temporarily closed to the
public and signed at entry
points.
Kabetogema, Koochiching,
Land O’Lakes and St. Croix
state forests are some of the
impacted areas.
State forest road and trail
users should check “Current
Conditions” on the DNR
website before traveling.
Road and trail closing infor-
mation will be updated as
conditions change.
“By checking the condi-
tions online, trails users
should be able to find alterna-
tive locations where they can
still get out to enjoy the
trails,” said Joe Alberio, a
district supervisor for the
DNR’s Parks and Trails Divi-
sion. “The road and trail clo-
sures will be lifted as soon as
conditions allow and repairs
are made, and we ask every-
one to ride responsibly wher-
ever they are.”
State forest road and trail
condition information is also
available by contacting the
DNR Information Center at
info.dnr@state.mn.us, 651-
296-6157, or 888-646-6367
between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.
Monday through Friday.

70 Years Ago
June 29, 1944
Louis Kill, Editor
Mr. and Mrs. Erwin Beseke
were pleasantly surprised Sun-
day afternoon by a number of
relatives and friends, who gath-
ered at their home on the occa-
sion of their 20th wedding an-
niversary. A picnic dinner was
served.
While tire quotas for June
were increased slightly over
May, supplies still are not suffi-
cient to provide tires to all appli-
cants, OPA officials said this
week. War Price and rationing
boards therefore are issuing pur-
chase certificates only to mo-
torists whose occupations are
considered most essential to the
war effort, and to public health
and safety.
Fill your fuel tank as full as
your coupons will allow, OPA
advised this week. Consumers
tanks are an important part of
our national oil storage facili-
ties. Buying oil now will help
avoid the possibility of winter-
time shortages and will ease the
work of transportation for oil
companies.

The cost for a one year sub-
scription to the Arlington Enter-
prise was $3.50.

17th. Their group has grown to
an enrollment of 60 members.
Meetings are held each second
and fourth Wednesdays of the
month. Present officers are: Mrs.
Elsie Otto, President; Mrs.
Lydia Doering, Vice-President;
Mrs. Ruth Weckwerth, Secretary
and Mrs. Alma Meyer, Treasur-
er.
Shoppers in Arlington this
year are being treated to a most
enjoyable “extra”, as our local
band has been playing their
summer concerts in various lo-
cations on Main Street on Friday
evenings.

Val Kill, Editor
Kenneth Narr of rural Arling-
ton and Tony Kloeckl of Arling-
ton have both announced their
intension to file for the Office of
Sibley County Commissioner of
the 2nd District.
The Arlington-Green Isle
School Board approved a new
policy for the 1985-86 school
year that states: all high school
students must register for and
pass a least one year-long course
in mathematics in grades 10-12.
This requirement must be met
before a student will be eligible
for graduation from the Arling-
ton-Green Isle High School.
The Arlington A’s baseball
club will hold a baseball clinic
at the baseball park this Satur-
day, June 30 at 5:00 p.m. for all
youngsters between the ages of
7-14. The clinic will last approx-
imately 1 to 1 1/2 hours and will
provide some tips on hitting,
fielding, base running, bunting
and other fundamentals concern-
ing the game of baseball.

Arlington on Thursday, June 19.
A road closed sign was placed in front

morning, June 24.
The Arlington Sportsmen’s Park was
full of water and still overflowing over
the nearby gravel road on Saturday
morning, June 21.
Water reached the parking lot at The

Arlington on Thursday afternoon, June
19. Sandbags were later placed around
the perimeter to hold back the water
from the parking lot and nearby roads.
The water was nearly waist deep along
Church Street in Green Isle on Thurs-
day morning, June 19. It was the hard-
est hit area in Green Isle, according to
local residents.
