Class president: So don’t be afraid; dreams come true
By Joseph Fehrenbach Class president Good evening ladies and gentlemen, teachers, faculty and fellow classmates. Welcome and thank you for coming tonight. Freedom! We’re done! We put in the time and the effort! We no longer have the disease known as senioritis. In a short while we will be receiving our diplomas and officially be graduating from GlencoeSilver Lake High School. And what a four years this journey has been! This class has accomplished many things together and has created what I’m sure will be lifelong friendships. No one here can deny that this class is the most athletic, the smartest, and the most responsible class that this school has ever seen. We have accomplished this by always pushing each other and striving to be better, with much help from our parents, teachers, friends and community! I want to thank all our parents for always caring for us and loving us even when we make dumb decisions. Thank you to our teachers for always challenging us and pushing us to do our best. Thank you to all our friends, who were always there for us. And thank you to the community and Boosters Club for all the support they have given us. We wouldn’t be where we are today without all the support we have received. As I put on my gown this morning, I was reminded of my first day of kindergarten. I remember getting on the bus with a sense of fear and trepidation. I was entering a new part of life outside my home and away from parents. I also remember my first day in high school. I was a little nervous because the school seemed really big to me, and I didn’t know where all my classes were and what high school would be like. As I stand in front of you today, I have the same sense of fear. We are done with high school, but what do we do now? Where do we go from here? I really don’t know what is going to happen. Sure, we have plans, but when does anything ever go as planned? Some of us will be going into the armed forces, some to college, and others will choose to start working. Some are ready to go to experience true independence for the first time. Others, like myself, are fearful of the unknown. Fearful of how my laundry will get done! I think, sometimes, we are so scared about the future that we forget to live in the present. Many of us are scared to go off to college. Scared of what will happen to our relationhsips with our friends when we are separated by great distances for long periods of time. Some of us may be holding back because we are scared. Don’t pass up opportunities for fear of

Assessments draw a crowd
By Rich Glennie Editor About 25 people attended Monday’s public hearing on the city’s 2013 street improvement plan that will include special assessments for a portion of the nearly $2.2 million project. The first phase of a multiphased comprehensive street improvement plan will include a combination of partial reconstruction, mill and overlay and crack sealing and sealcoating of streets in 2013. The majority of the work will be the less intrusive crack sealing and sealcoating, and those are considered maintenance issues and will not be assessed, according to Justin Black of Short Elliott Hendrickson (SEH), the city consulting engineer. But a 35 percent assessment on the partial reconstruction and mill and overlay work will be paid by benefiting property owners, and that was the rub with most of those in attendance. Several people who spoke asked the city to have the entire community pay for the work rather than assess portions of the cost to individual property owners, But Mayor Randy Wilson said City Council has been working on these improvement plans for a couple of years and has looked at a va-

New 1-sort recycling collects 28 tons in May
By Rich Glennie Editor Glencoe City Council on Monday night was almost giddy over the first month’s recyling statistics from its new one-sort program that began in May. In all, over 24 tons of recyclable materials were collected in Glencoe during the first month, well ahead of the best five-sort month last year (April, 2012) at 17.9 tons. It was estimated that another four tons from the north side would have been collected if the first collection had been a full twoweek period. That would have put the May total at over 28 tons. At 28 tons in May, that is a 57 percent increase using the single-sort program, said Mayor Randy Wilson. The average monthly five-sort statistics from 2012 were 15.15 tons using the county’s five-sort program. The May 6 collection on the north side of the city (one week’s worth) finished with 4.38 tons. Thirteenth Street is the divide between north and south. On week two (south side) another 5.86 tons were collected. The first full two-week collection cycle occurred on May 20 (north side) and resulted in 8.38 tons. The May 28 (south side) collected was 5.41 tons. Wilson said the majority of the comments he has heard is that the single-sort program “is great” and that it is easier to use and more products are collected and recycled.
GSL graduates 138 seniors, names 3 co-valedictorians
Boesche, Mohr, Polzin tops in class of 2013
By Rich Glennie Editor The 19th annual commencement for the Glencoe-Silver Lake High School and Stevens Seminary was held Friday night in the high school gymnasium for the 138 seniors in the class of 2013. GSL High School Principal gave the opening address, and senior class president, Joseph Fehrenbach, gave the student address. (Both speeches are inside today’s Chronicle.) The class had three co-valedictorians this year in Kaitlyn Boesche, daughter of Jeff and Donna Boesche; Taylor Mohr, daughter of John and Bonnie Mohr; and Kyle Polzin, son of Kevin and Shari Polzin. Also recognized were the top 10 percent of the class — 13 students. They include: Kelly Beneke, daughter of John and Monica Beneke; Boesche; Reed Dunbar, son of Bill and Marilyn Dunbar; Raymond Eberhard, son of Robert and Gloria Eberhard; Fehrenbach, son of Brian and Donna Fehrenbach; Matthew Mickolichek, son of Mark and Patti Mickolichek; Mohr; Polzin; Alexandra Stensvad, daughter of Duane and Roxanne Stensvad; Eric Thalmann, son of Brian and Karen Thalmann; Shannon Twiss, daughter of Dennis and Anne Twiss; Katie Urban, daughter of Gregg and Linda Urban; and Luke Weiers, son of Rodney and Debra Weiers. Polzin also was named the 2013 Outstanding Senior Boy, while Mercy Rakow was named the Outstanding Senior Girl by the GSL faculty. They were selected on four characteristics: honor, scholarship, leadership and service. The GSL High School Band, under the direction of Peter Gepson, performed prelude selections and the recessional “Pomp and Circumstance” at the end of the ceremony. The GSL Concert Choir and senior choir members, under the direction of Randi Erlandson, also sang. Senior class adviser Paul Lemke presented the class to 2013 after the diplomas were presented to the enthusiastic seniors, who tossed their mortarboards into the air. Besides Fehrenbach, the other class officers were Rakow, vice president; Brooke Kaczmarek, secretary; and Beneke, treasurer. The class motto is “If you can imagine it, you can achieve it. If you can dream it, you can become it.” Class colors were black, purple and silver. The class flower was purpletipped white Gerbera daisy.

Assessments Continued from page 1 Happenings
Glencoe Legion to meet June 6
The Glencoe American Legion Post 95 regular monthly meeting will be held on Thursday, June 6, at 7 p.m. in the basement of Glencoe VFW Post 5102. All members are encouraged to attend. The installation of officers will be part of the agenda. Lunch will be served. riety of funding options. It boils to down to the city’s need to bond for the work, and with bonds comes a state statute that requires at least 20 percent of the cost be assessed to properties benefiting from the improvements, Wilson explained. To do that, requires the 35 percent assessment for the partial reconstruction and milling/overlay work to compensate for the sealcoating that is not assessed, Black explained. ***** Black outlined the opening phase of the street improvement plan that mainly involves the northwest quadrant of the community. In 2013, two areas will require partial reconstruction — West 17th Street between Fir and Cedar avenues in the northwest corner and First Street from Hennepin Avenue west to Andrew Drive ($522,000). Several other streets will have the street surface milled off and replaced with a new overlay of bituminous ($1.238 million). Most of that work is on 16th Street and portions of Birch Avenue and Cedar Avenue, also in the northwest end of the community. The rest of the work is sealcoating and cracking sealing ($360,000). All the costs are engineer’s estimates, Black cautioned, and once City Council approval is given, bids will be let and more precise dollar amounts will be available for the assessment hearing tentatively planned for Aug. 19. If all goes as planned, work would begin in late summer or early fall and be completed by Nov. 1, Black said. ***** But not everyone was happy with the plans. Earl Dammann, who lives on West 13th Street, said his dead-end street has low traffic volume. “There’s hardly anything wrong with the street.” But Black said there is a life expectancy for streets which tend to dry out and crack over time. He said water, “the enemy of every street,” seeps into those cracks and breaks up the bituminous. “It is beyond sealcoating,” Black added. Another resident on First Street near Oak Leaf Park questioned work on his street, which was redone only three years ago. Black said First Street, especially along the curbs, has deteriorated due to not having proper drainage, “and it is only going to get worse.” He said the partial reconstruction of First Street will focus on the outside edges of the street and not the center of the street. Tim Halligan, who lives on Cedar Avenue, said while he and another neighbor will be assessed for milling and overlay work, other neighbors on the street will not. While Halligan said the work is welcomed, the way of assessing “seems a bit unfair.” He kiddingly offered to set up a toll booth on his street to help pay for his assessments. “We have to follow the rules,” Wilson said of the state statutes on assessment for bonding. John Rodeberg of SEH told Halligan that it will all balance out in the long run. He said his non-assessed neighbors will likely pay for improvements later. Adam Dammann, a West 17th Street resident, said the partial reconstruction of his street is needed, but he questioned whether a second layer of blacktop was ever put on that street in the first place. Wilson said there have been poor soils and water issues with that street that were part of the NorthCountry Estates development. Bruce Donnay, who lives on Birch Avenue, asked if the city was certain the tile under his street was working. He said an old farm tile was cut off when the street was extended, and that has been the main problem of why he gets water in his basement even though his house is on a little higher ground. Karen Jannusch, a Cedar Avenue resident, asked where the general fund money for streets is spent each year. Wilson said the city once set aside $150,000 to $180,000 a year for street repairs, but in recent years, with continual budget cuts, that money was trimmed back to about $20,000 to $40,000 a year. While street maintenance continues, Wilson said when utilities need to be replaced, then the city looks at bonding for that work, using other funds to help pay the bonds. Jannusch asked if property taxes will increase, too. The aim is to not raise property taxes, Wilson said, and that is why the city has waited until some of the older

city debt is paid off first. Paula Bulau said the city does not assess for parks, so why for streets? She also pointed out the city has better use for its money than the Morningside Avenue extension project, or for maintaining the city trails. Wilson said the Morningside project involves municipal state aid dollars that cannot be used for regular city streets, only for those designated as municipal state aid streets. As to spending on trails, Wilson said there can be “differing opinions.” Mike Schuetz, a resident on West 17th Street, asked why the city’s general fund should not pay for the work. Council member Gary Ziemer said if the city used general fund dollars, property taxes would go up accordingly. City Administrator Mark Larson estimated that would increase the local levy by about 100 percent. Larson said the general fund has about $1.8 million in reserves, but the project will cost about $2.2 million. “We don’t have the money.” Also, Larson explained, the city’s reserve funds are used to cash flow the city’s budget between payments from the state that occur twice a year. Numerous other comments also were made during the hearing. Former City Council member Gary Ballard spoke after the hearing and said, in the past, money was always set aside in the city’s street fund. “What’s wrong with you people? Don’t you get it?” Ballard demanded. “Why didn’t you run (for City Council) against Dan
(council member Perschau) last election?” snapped Larson. “I’m tired of getting beat up!” Ballard snapped back. Wilson said sides can disagree on issues, but, by and large, Council’s work is representative of the people’s wishes. He said the comprehensive street improvement plan is a good plan for roads, and there is a history for assessing that dates back to the 1960s. ***** Larson said this is just phase one of a many-phased street improvement plan. “We selected these (as phase one) because there are no utilities under the streets.” He said phase two planned for 2014 has a lot more underground work involved, and “utilities will be replaced.” “This phase has the easiest fixes,” Larson said. He said the aim is to get the best bang for the dollars this year. “All cities struggle with this,” Larson said of needed street improvements. Many of Glencoe’s streets and underground utilities are 50 to 60 years old or older. How to pay for them is the big issue. “We try not to do a piecemeal process,” Wilson said, and that is why City Council waited for the debt service to come off so as not to have to raise property taxes. Black said the assessments, which are based on property footage abutting the project, can be paid within 30 days after the assessments are approved, or they can be certified to the county and paid off over a 10-year period. They can be paid in full anytime during that 10-year period, he added.

the unknown. Nothing in life is worthwhile unless you take risks. Don’t be afraid of failure. Sometimes this is how we learn best. Out of failure have come many successes, such as the incandescent lightbulb. Edision failed 1,000 times to create the lightbulb before he succeeded. Nelson Mandela once said, “There is no passion to be found in playing small and settling for a life that’s less than the one you are capable of living.” We are never guaranteed a tomorrow. Our lives can be changed in a single instant. We need to learn to treasure what we have and never take anything for granted. We need to remember to take risks and to not settle for less in life than what we are capable of. I’d like to end tonight with a simple poem written by my younger brother, Jacob, when he was 10 years old, entitled “Life.” People are changing lives Lives are changing people A life; a journey A journey; a dream Living life, a passion Dreaming big, a desire Life moves fast Don’t forget to live it But if you work hard, Play hard, live hard Then, life is a dream come true!

School is about building relationships, memories
By Paul Sparby High school principal Good evening! On behalf of the Board of Education, Superintendent Sonju, Assistant Principal Svoboda, Senior Advisor Lemke, and most importantly our graduates, I’d like to welcome all students, staff, family, and friends to the 2013 Glencoe-Silver Lake graduation ceremony. I would also like to recognize and thank Mary Ann Drew and Cheryl Templin for all of the work and organizing they do to make our graduation ceremony successful. They are often working behind the scenes and most people do not realize all they do to make all of this happen. Thank you both for all of your time and efforts. So here we are … you have reached the peak; 13 years ago you all started a journey … today you have reached the end of that journey. I would like to start by congratulating all of our graduating seniors on your accomplishments that brought all of us here today. Every year when I have to prepare this speech, I try to find a theme or message that emulates our senior class. This is never an easy task and one that I don’t take lightly. The theme that I have come up with for this group of seniors is “relationships.” The reason I have chosen this theme for this group, is because this was a very unique group of kids that was so involved in so many things within the school, their communities and their churches as well as many other organizations. But what really makes this group unique is that even with being so involved in so many different activities, they did it at a very high level! Here is an example of this: A certain senior participating in our commencement today missed seventh period 26 times during third trimester … 26 absences! Putting this into perspective, a trimester is usually 55 to 60 days. Your first thought might be, “Wow, and this kid is graduating?” What if I also told you that EVERY SINGLE ONE of those absences was because of a school-related activity. Besides being a fulltime student, he was also a member of the soccer team, study group and the great times we had studying together! This group of seniors was great to work with, but what made them great beside their academic achievements, was their involvement and investment in their school and their communities. It is through those investments where you create your memories and develop your relationships. When you look back 10 years from now … 20 years from now … scoreboards and details will fade, but you will be able to remember that special play from the big game that most likely had nothing to do with the outcome. You probably won’t be able to remember what you got for a grade in senior social, BUT I bet you will all remember when you had to be a gladiator and try to slay the mighty lion on Mr. Magnuson’s window with a nerf bow and suction cup arrow! You probably won’t remember who was selected as the homecoming king and queen, BUT who will ever forget the pepfest and seeing Mr. DeCorsey in a cheerleader outfit? I, for one, have been trying for almost nine months now but to no avail! Trust me when I say, scores, achievements, and grades will fade, the relationships and memories will not! To test my theory, I sent a text message to the 14 seniors who were a member of either student government or student activities and asked them this question, “What is your best memory of GSL and why?” I wanted to see what I would get for a response. Would their responses be focused on awards and academics, or relationships? As a group, they didn’t disappoint me and only reinforced my theory when I got responses such as … 1) National BPA because of Disney World, swimming in the ocean and the OPPORTUNITY to meet a lot of new people. 2) Here is another response, but I don’t want to give up the student’s identity, and I quote: “Making breakfast in Mrs. Wiblemo’s room and not getting caught. We had pancakes cooking, bacon, the whole works!” Mitch, please stop and see me after commencement tonight … we NEED to have a little chat! 3) Or how about this response that I got from two students. “The time Bernice and I threw dodgeballs at your face!” Speaking of which, Mackenzie and Bernice, after commencement tonight, please wait with Mitch. I also had other responses but they all had one thing in common, they were all about relationships and experiences. Jane Howard summed it up best with this quote, “Call it a clan, call it a network, call it a tribe, call it a family, call it whatever you want! But no matter what you call it, whoever you are, you need one.” This is a concept that this senior group has not only adopted, they have lived it, and they have practiced it every day throughout their high school career. I said at the beginning you have reached the peak. That was actually a lie; you are still in the foothills! You have completed a journey, but this journey is just a small stepping stone. But to me, that is what is exciting for all of you. As a group, you have built a tremendous foundation here at GSL and that foundation is going to serve you well as you all move on to bigger and better things. I hope you understand the importance of getting involved, of building relationships, and how to make meaningful memories. The challenge I would like to present to all of you is this, no matter where you go, how much money you make, what you accomplish, or where you might end up living, don’t forget about where you came from and your clan, your network, your GSL family. As a group, you have accomplished wonderful things together over the past 13 years. Cherish those memories and keep them strong as you continue to build and create new memories. They will never fade away! I would like to once again acknowledge and congratulate the graduating class of Glencoe-Silver Lake High School and wish you all the best in your future endeavors. Thank you!

Oh and by the way, he also maintained a 3.99 GPA. As Paul Harvey would say, “And now you know, the rest of the story!” Now this student is an extreme example, but you get my point! Some of you right now are probably saying “OK, so how did you come up with relationships” as the theme. Jim Henson once said, “Kids don’t remember what you try to teach them. They remember what you are.” As adults, think back to your high school days, perhaps your college days, perhaps time spent in the military, maybe your work experiences … what are your memories about? Are your memories about your job description? Are they what you got for a grade in a course? Do you find yourself reminiscing about how you use to resolve quadratic equations? I cannot speak for you, but I know my memories, and they are all about relationships. I can’t recall what I learned in my calculus class, but I can tell you who taught it!

Legislature outdid itself by combining tobacco tax with Vikings stadium
Our view: Combining two pet peeves created one larger, more convoluted peeve
ot sure how the state Legislature managed to do it, but it combined two pet peeves into one major headache for Minnesotans. First, the majority DFL-Legislature managed to tack on another $1.60 to a pack of cigarettes sold in Minnesota, which is bad enough, but legislators also managed to finagle a way to use that additional tax revenue to help pay for the “Taj Mahal of football stadiums” for the Minnesota Vikings. Wow! We now have one huge pet peeve rather than two less peevish ones. The state Legislature outdid itself on this one, stumbling all over themselves to appease the football gods! First, the tobacco tax hike. Anyone who smokes, or knows someone who smokes, knows smokers will not quit simply because it becomes too expensive. Most are addicted, probably for life, and quitting is not as simple as making a pack of smokes cost over $6 or even $10 each. And what is to prevent smokers from going to Wisconsin, North Dakota or South Dakota where tobacco taxes and the price per cigarette pack are a lot less? The Legislature is banking that $4-per-gallon of gas will keep most Minnesota smokers home and absorbing the penalties for their vice. Smokers may have to form a pact among themselves to load up on cartons of smokes whenever on vacation. By the way, like fireworks, it is illegal to go across state lines, buy merchandise and resell it in your home state without a permit. Just a heads up to smokers contemplating a “black market” for cigarettes. Imagine state troopers posted at Minnesota’s many borders searching
The McLeod County Chronicle, Wednesday, June 5, 2013, page 4
for tobacco contraband! Another good use of tax dollars. But even if all smokers miraculously quit smoking because of the ever-rising cost, how would the state pay its share of the $1 billion Vikings stadium? That share is in the range of $350 million, or about $34 million a year, over a decade or so, and Plan A — the highly-touted epulltabs plan — has already fallen flat on its face. Anyone with any sense knows that relying on a vice to generate revenues for a share of the Vikings stadium was not the wisest choice in the first place. So now, we simply add another vice? Actually, what the legislators should have done was add a third vice to the mix — alcohol. Oh, yes. They tried that this session and ran into a stone wall from the alcohol industry and its lobbyists. Apparently one vice is not like another vice when it comes to taxation. Heck, the state might have paid for its share of the Vikings stadium on the backs of cash-strapped Gophers fans had they raised the taxes on beer at TCF Stadium, the new U of M football stadium. Oh, yes. I forgot the Gophers took a loss on beer sales last season. Not sure how that could happen. Also not sure where cash-strapped college kids can find $7 for a glass of beer. Needless to say, state legislators face a conundrum. How can they attempt to promote the cessation of smoking and tobacco use in order to save on future health care costs, while at the same time, hope smokers and tobacco users do not quit too soon in order to help subsidize the “cash-strapped” Vikings? Is anyone else confused by the logic of all this? — R.G.
Letters to Editor Class of 2013 celebrates its many successes
To the Editor: Congratulations to the class of 2013! We celebrated this class’ successes at the graduation ceremony last Friday. We wish all of them nothing but the best as they move into their new phase of life. This past school year was nothing short of spectacular. The class of 2013 has many accomplishments and success stories and has represented GSL in a positive way. Thank you for being “The Greatest of All Time!” Our Early Childhood Learning Center is still on schedule and ready for construction very soon. Our project came in over budget, which was not what we wanted to hear. With the rising costs of just about everything, this explains why it’s going to cost more. Unfortunately, this is the way things go, and prices are only going to get higher. I am happy that our board has decided to move ahead with the project. Our scheduled completion date will be late December. The total project will cost $1,966,909, which includes the cost of remodeling Lincoln rest rooms/locker rooms and the old Lincoln kitchen. The district will be paying for about a third of this. When completed, we are going to have a solid, wonderful facility for our youngest learners. We all know that summer will be short, but here’s wishing all of you a safe and wonderful summer. Come this fall, we will welcome the class of 2026. Thank you all for a great school year and I am looking forward to an even better one next school year! Christopher D. Sonju Superintendent of Schools
What do we have if we write prejudices into law?
To the Editor: I am writing in response to Mrs. Emily Gruenhagen’s letter regarding gay marriage (“Letterwriter confirms concerns about gay agenda,” May 29). Mrs. Gruenhagen begins by expressing concern at the use of gender-neutral terms. In most situations, gender-neutral terms are already politically correct, and generally accepted. For example, when referring to someone whose gender is not known, using “he,” “she” “his” “hers,” etc., has the potential to offend. For this reason, we use “his or her” or “theirs.” This is not an inconvenience, and has been part of every day English for many years. The use of terms such as “parents” instead of “mother and father” can be viewed the same way. She additionally expresses concerns that the passage of a gay marriage bill limits citizens’ religious freedoms. However, the way I see it, the gay marriage bill is a victory for religious freedom! Countless pastors and church leaders will now be free to perform marriage ceremonies for gay couples. The laws previously in place prohibiting gay marriage (and the amendment attempting to write this into the Constitution) do not protect the freedoms of Minnesotans, they limit them. After the passage of this bill, religious freedoms in Minnesota will continue to be protected, as they always have. However, discrimination in the name of religion, no matter who it is against, is morally and politically wrong. As a Christian, it saddens me to see people using Christianity as an excuse to treat people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgendered as anything less than what they are — taxpaying, law-abiding citizens of the United States who deserve the same rights and protections as anyone else. In closing, I believe that when Minnesotans voted against the marriage amendment in November, it was with their children in mind. What kind of a state do we leave them when we write our own prejudices into law? Shannon Twiss Glencoe

Legion offers etiquette tips on flying flag
On the eve of Flag Day on Friday, June 14, Glencoe American Legion Post 95 Commander Al Gruenhagen offered this advice about flag etiquette: The fundamental rule of flag etiquette is: treat all flags with respect and common sense. The American flag should take precedence over all other flags when flown in the United States. It should not be flown lower than another flag nor should it be smaller than another flag flown with it. Other flags may be flown at the same height and in the same size. Other national flags should not be smaller or flown lower than the American flag when displayed together. If it is not possible to display two or more national flags at the same height, it is not proper to display them together at all. The point of honor is on the extreme left from the standpoint of the observer. The order from left to right of flags flown together is the Stars and Stripes, other national flags in alphabetical order, state flags, county and city flags, organizational flags and personal flags. If one flag is at half-staff in mourning, other flags flown with it should be at half-staff. First raise the flags to their peaks and lower to half-staff. The American flag is raised first and lowered last. Flags are to fly at half-staff from sunrise to sunset. For flags that cannot be lowered, such as those on many homes, the American Legion says that attaching a black ribbon or streamer to the top of the flag is an acceptable alternative. The ribbon should be the same width as a stripe on the flag and the same length as the flag. A salute (hand over heart when not in uniform) should be rendered when the flag is raised, lowered or carried on parade, when the Pledge of Allegiance is recited and when the national anthem is played (unless the flag is not present). It is proper to fly the American flag at night, but only if it is spotlighted.

Phil Schmalz, assistant county highway engineer, gave the Board an update on several projects. The County Road 15 bridge replacement project, which spans the South Fork of the Crow River north of Glencoe and southeast of Silver Lake, began in August 2012 and was delayed by weather and other issues. Schmalz said Tuesday that the contractor, Duininck Construction of Prinsburg, “is putting in the guard rails today. The barricades will come down today and the detour signs will come down tomorrow (Wednesday).” Schmalz also reported on other projects, including: • County State Aid Highway (CSAH) 2 from the Wright County line two miles south into McLeod County. The concrete has been poured on McLeod County’s portion the project and the contractor will be working on finishing the shoulders. • CSAH 2 (Grove Avenue) within the city of Silver Lake. The underground utility work is basically done, said Schmalz, and now the prep work is being done for the aggregate base, curb and gutter. • CSAH 111 (Main Street and Prior Street) in Stewart. Underground utility work was completed during last year’s construction season, and now prep work for paving, curb and gutter and sidewalks is under way. • County Road 79 in Lester Prairie. De-watering and storm sewer work is under way. Once the utility work is done, the road will be reconstructed. • CSAH 115 and Trunk Highway 15 roundabout, just south of Hutchinson. Work began Monday. The contractor is currently milling off the blacktop in the area of where the roundabout will be constructed. • CSAH 7, north of

Hutchinson. The project is expected to start Monday, June 10, with the reclamation of the current bituminous. • Replacement of a bridge on Leaf Avenue in Penn Township. The bridge deck has been poured. After the concrete cures for about a week, the railings will be installed and grading will be done. The bridge will then be opened for traffic. The County Board also awarded the 2013 contract for seal coating to Pearson Brothers of Hanover in the amount of $667,241.22 for county roads. The County Board also approved alternate bids of $10,218.20 to seal coat the parking lot at the courthouse and $8,681.80 to seal coat the parking lot at the Health and Human Services building. County Administrator Pat Melvin said the cost of the parking lot seal coating will come from the county’s maintenance budget, not the highway department budget. The engineer’s estimate for seal coating on county roads was $847,499.21.

Flag etiquette Continued from page 4
In a public gathering (lecture hall, church, etc.), the American flag should be to the right of the speakers or on the wall behind them. The canton of the flag (blue field with 50 stars) should always be to the observer’s left except: 1) when displayed on a casket; 2) when displayed as a decal on the right side of a vehicle; 3) when worn as a patch on the right arm (use of the left arm is preferable). The Stars and Stripes should be in the center of a group of flags only when: 1) the center pole is taller than the others; or 2) when a fanlike arrangement makes the center pole higher than the others. It is not illegal to fly the flag (state, ethnic group, organization, etc.) alone, but it is always preferable to display the American flag at the same. The U.S. flag can be flown every day, but especially on the following days: Jan. 1 — New Year’s Day. Jan. 20 — Inauguration Day. Third Monday in January — Martin Luther King Day. Feb. 12 — President Abe Lincoln’s birthday. Third Monday in February — Presidents Day. Feb. 22 — President George Washington’s birthday. April 6 — Army Day. Easter Sunday. May 8 — Victory in Europe (VE) Day. Second Sunday in May — Mother’s Day. Third Saturday in May — Armed Forces Day. Last Monday in May — Memorial Day. June 14 — Flag Day.

100 Years Ago
June 6, 1913 O.C. Conrad, Editor The Zellmer farm two miles north of Brownton was sold last week to Mr. Rudolph Nemitz of Minneapolis. Mr. and Mrs. Edward Nemitz will move up from Minneapolis and reside on the farm. Quite a little excitement was caused here last Thursday afternoon when it was reported that Johnny Korson, a 17-year-old lad, purchased a revolver with the intention of killing one of the contractors working at the west edge of the village. Marshal Gorr immediately procured assistance and located Korson on the east shore of the lake, concealed in the woods, and was pecking away at the workmen across the lake. Fortunately, he had only a .22 calibre revolver and was unable to do any damage. He was taken into custody by Marshal Gorr and taken to Glencoe for safe-keeping. He was examined by three physicians Friday, who soon came to the conclusion that the boy was “crazy drunk” at the time he committed the act and he was released at once. and Lindeman Phillips 66 Oil Station. A homing pigeon owned by Mr. V. Miller of Des Moines arrived in Brownton May 11 at the Dave Rolfs home northwest of town. Tom Denham, who is working at the Rolfs’ home, kept the pigeon overnight and attached a note to it before releasing it the next day. Mr. Denham received word that the pigeon arrived home sometime the following week, having flown a distance of 278 miles. Several students of the local high school got an unexpected bath Wednesday afternoon while out for a joy ride. Their car got out of control and entered the creek near the Charles Sommerdorf home, and they were forced to swim for safety since the creek is unusually high due to recent heavy rains. The students in the car were Charles Burville, Delmer Schatz, Dorothy Kujas, Lois Kruse, Warren West and Leonard Pikal. received a scholarship from the Glencoe Shriners and the Brownton Parent-Teacher Association scholarship went to Bob Zaske, son of Mr. and Mrs. Herbert Zaske.
Meatloaf, let me count the ways
I never liked meatloaf when I was a kid. To tell you the truth, I rarely ate anything with ground beef, other than tacos and an occasional Big Mac, but with one all-beef patty. Odd, I know. It’s gotten better. After being away from home for awhile, coming home to my mom’s meatloaf was always a treat. I would even get hungry for meatloaf and order it in restaurants, but it was never as good as my mom’s. When I started cooking more, I finally asked my mom for her secret recipe. She opened the cupboard and handed me the box of Lipton Onion Soup mix. The recipe was on the box. Soupieror Meatloaf 1 envelope onion soup mix 2 pounds ground beef 3/4 cup plain dry bread crumbs 2 eggs 3/4 cup water 1/3 cup ketchup Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine all ingredients in large bowl. Shape into loaf in a 13-x-9-inch baking or roasting pan. Bake uncovered 1 hour or until done. Let stand 10 minutes before serving. I have modified the recipe over the years. I usually double all of the ingredients and add up to three pounds of ground beef. I then bake a third of the mixture and freeze the other two parts in separate freezer bags for another time. I often use old fashion oats instead of the bread crumbs because I am more likely to have them on hand (my husband loves oatmeal raisin cookies). The oats give the meatloaf a little bit different texture, but it turns out well. I have even ventured out in my meatloaf exploration. My good friend from high school, Steph and her mom Pat gave me a recipe for brown sugar meatloaf at a bridal shower last summer. I was intrigued and had to try it and it was good. Pat and Steph’s Brown Sugar Meatloaf 1/2 cup packed brown sugar 1/2 cup ketchup
My Turn Now
By Karin Ramige Cornwell 1-1/2 pounds lean ground beef 3/4 cup milk 2 eggs 1-1/2 teaspoons salt 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper 1 small onion, chopped 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger 3/4 cup crushed saltine cracker crumbs Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a 5x9-inch loaf pan. Press the brown sugar in the bottom of the prepared loaf pan and spread the ketchup over the sugar. In a mixing bowl, mix thoroughly all remaining ingredients and shape into a loaf. Place on top of the ketchup. Bake in preheated oven for 1 hour or until juices are clear. Turn the meatloaf over onto a serving platter. I have also been experimenting with the methods of cooking meatloaf. Recently I was craving meatloaf, but didn’t have, or want, to wait the hour for it to bake. I had seen recipes online for meatloaf cups which baked in about 20 minutes, which was just what I was looking for. I placed the meatloaf mixture into muffin tins and topped with a little ketchup. I baked them at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes, checking them after 15. They turned out great. Quick and easy. I have also seen many recipes for meatloaf in the slow cooker. Being the slow cooker lover that I am, it was a must try. I placed a pound of meatloaf mixture into my slow cooker and cooked it on low for eight hours. The results were not horrible, but not great either. Lipton’s website says to cook the recipe for six to eight hours in the slow cooker. Closer to six may have been better. I may have to follow the exact recipe for this method. I am not giving up on the idea of meatloaf in the slow cooker. I will let you know how my future experiments turn out.

Mary Jane Kosek
We little knew that day 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 love you, you did not go alone; for part of us went with you the day God called you home. You left us peaceful memories, you are always by our side. Our family chain is broken and nothing seems the same.

Pastor’s Corner
Rev. Linzy Collins Jr. First Congregational United Church of Christ, Glencoe “Oh, how I love thy law! It is my meditation all the day. … How sweet are thy words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth.” — Psalm 119:97, 103 hat is the future of religious education? Will it just become another cog in the wheels of government, politics, and the much bigger structure of public education? Who directs the spiritual growth of your family? The delivery of religious education services already looks much different than just a few years ago. Generally, today people attend church activities less frequently. Other ways of connecting us to study of the Bible must be found. Distance education using the internet and intranet has become the fastest growing segment of public education. Universities, colleges, technical schools, and other forms of secondary education use long distance learning to bring teacher and student together without placing them in an actual classroom. We see this method of learning right now in religious education. I am presently studying a process or delivery system that could allow any church member with a computer, tablet, or Smartphone to have access to a huge variety religious topics including methods of Bible study, contemporary moral questions, religious history, and topical studies, just to name a few. Each member could study independently, with your local church leader, or small groups you with which you belong. You could use this from any location with internet access. This method would have been too costly, but now is becoming quite affordable. Pray about this. Be open to direction by the Holy Spirit. Do not fear, these new methods will not take away some of our ‘tried and true’ ways of Bible study you and I have used our whole life. They are merely some additional clubs in our spiritual golf bag. God moves in mysterious ways His wonders to perform. What is new today soon becomes commonplace. Enjoy your study of God’s Holy Word.

Five foreign exchange students at Glencoe-Silver Lake this year showed off their diplomas after graduation ceremonies last Friday. They include, from left to right, Sze-ka Seehna Yeung of Hong Kong,
Ulrike Schwarze of Germany, Qiwei Huang of China, Mai-Quynh Nyguyen of Germany and Ohnapun Thararuck of Thailand.
Are you sure? Tyler Zajicek seemed to be amused as his father, Craig, right, checked his diploma to make sure it was signed.
Michael Skoglund, Ryan Sprengeler and Matthew Steinhaus got a good laugh during commencement.
Elizabeth Bonillo was all smiles walking into the graduation ceremony. Receiving one of the biggest ovations was Brandon Overman who was greeted by Superintendent Chris Sonju, left, and escorted by Mike Hardy, right.
Senior members of the GSL Concert Choir performed “You’re Going to Miss this,” at Friday’s graduation ceremony.
The seniors included, from left, Eric Thalmann, Shelby Rolf, Mercy Rakow and Shannon Twiss.
Karla Dostal received congratulations from GSL School Board member Kevin Kuester as she got her diploma.
