60 years of musical gifts
Eunice Warner honored for contributions to her church
By Lori Copler Staff Writer he Brownton Congregational Church honored Eunice Warner Sunday for 60 years of musical service to the church — as an organist, pianist, accompanist and vocal soloist. Warner said Monday that she was both honored and “a little embarrassed” by the celebration of her musical abilities. Music, she said, has been a part of her life since her earliest memories — well before she joined the Congregational Church in Brownton in 1953, when she and her husband, Chuck Warner, came to town after Chuck Warner bought the Brownton Bulletin. In fact, she started music lessons at the age of 3-1/2, as a child in Oak Park, and can remember her mother putting her on a Greyhound bus to go to piano lessons in Moorhead. “She’d tell the driver to look out for me, and away I’d go,” said Warner. “And my music teacher would do the same at the other end when it was time to go home. You wouldn’t dare do that nowadays.” She attended a country school through eighth grade, then went to high school. “We had a good teacher, and lots of music,” Warner said of her country school experience. “Country school did me no harm.” Then it was off to high school, where there was choir. “We had lots of fun,” Warner said. And she also had early exposure to music in church; her family at-
Water issues addressed by Council
By Rich Glennie Editor The lasting effects of the June 23 flash flooding and subsequent rainfalls in Glencoe have prompted Glencoe City Council to look for solutions at various sites in the community prone to flooding. But the reality is, according to city officials, some areas may simply have to remain that way and put up with street flooding. At Monday night’s Glencoe City Council meeting, Gary Schreifels, public works director for water and wastewater treatment, said city staff is looking at maintenance issues at the Willow Ridge (North Central) holding ponds. The permanent four-foot water level needs to be drained to conduct maintenance on the pond’s piping, which he said could begin this week. City Administrator Mark Larson also said city staff is doing an inventory throughout the storm sewer collection system to determine catch basin issues and assess damages in case federal FEMA funds become available. One area that had street damage was at Newton Avenue and 18th Street, also low-lying areas on 12th Street and at 14th Street and Judd Avenue are being studied. Several basements in those areas were flooded. But Larson said some areas in the community, like 16th Street at Louden Avenue flood regularly, but the flooding is contained within the streets as designed and does not get into basements. If the water stays confined in the street, “we’re accepting of that.” But Mayor Randy Wilson said there are low-lying areas, like on 12th Street, in which “four or five houses have issues. How do we remedy that?” He also pointed to the 14th Street and Judd Avenue area, and said he

In the front are tended a small Lutheran church that her grandfather helped build. It was there that she learned to play the organ. “I didn’t take lessons, it was just that it had a keyboard, and I was used to that,” said Warner.

you got enough air to get some sound,” Warner laughed. Later, the church bought a pipe organ. After high school, it was off to college, where Warner continued to put her musical skills to use. She had a goal of completing four years of college in three, but had to pay for it. Each weekend, Warner would get on a Greyhound

and Mr. and Mrs. Frank Knick, who built a small frame church in the northwest corner of the village of Brownton. Prior to this, the family hosted services in their homes. The name of the new church was the “Northside Church.” In early years, the church shared pastors with St. Matthew’s Lutheran Church in Penn Township. It later also had alliances with St. Paul’s in Stewart, Peace Lutheran in Winthrop and St. Matthew’s in Fernando. In 1891, a new constitution was adopted and the name of the church changed to “The Evangelical Lutheran St. Matthew’s Church in Brownton.” In 1922, a new church home was built, this one located at the corner of what is now Third Avenue South and Third Street South in Brownton. The old building was sold and remains a private home to this day. In 1944, the church’s name was changed to Grace American Lutheran Church. The church’s Sunday school also started in the newly remodeled church basement. The church also bought a parsonage. In 1952, the members voted to add a 10-foot addition across the front of the church to accommodate a nursery (later the pastor’s of-

Bond sale to Security Bank saves city money on financing
By Rich Glennie Editor Glencoe City Council on Monday night, during its 50minute meeting, approved the sale of $626,000 bonds for the long-term financing of the Glencoe City Center. The long-term financing replaced the temporary threeyear bond needed to help the facility get to more permanent refinancing for the facility. Paul Donna, city bond counsel with Northland Securities, said Security Bank & Trust of Glencoe offered a 15-year bond at 4.33 percent interest. The city annual debt repayment would be $56,500. Donna said locking in at that interest rate will save the city a considerable amount of money. He said since last November, rates have jumped 1.7 percent after record low rates for the past 40 years. “The bond market is still attractive,” Donna said, “but the rates continue to move up.” When asked if it was common local banks pick up bonds of this size, Donna replied, “It’s not really common.” Security Bank & Trust and its President Gale Hoese “went beyond what is typical. Security saved the city some costs. I think they were a great partner in stepping up.” Council approved a motion for a financial advisory agreement and a resolution awarding the bonds to Security Bank & Trust. In other matters, City Council: — Awarded the low bid for the removal of a storage digester lid at the wastewater treatment plant to BW Welding of Hutchinson. The bid was for $13,000. Gary Schreifels, public works director for water and wastewater, said the current lid for the digester was installed in 1972, and needs replacing. The motion before City Council was just to remove the lid. Replacing the lid would cost additional dollars, Schreifels said. Schreifels hoped to have the work completed before winter weather sets in. City Administrator Mark Larson said the work was not planned for this year, but once the cover began to sink in the digester, it needed to be removed. Schreifels said the lid removal and eventual replacement costs would come out of the sewer and water service charge (SAC/WAC) fund, which has about $280,000 in it. — Opted to not take part in a new water line testing program for its 2014-15 street improvement projects. At a previous meeting, John Rodeberg, city engineering consultant with Short Elliott Hendrickson (SEH), suggested the less invasive method of testing the lines without tearing up the streets first. But City Council felt that the area in the 2014-15 work in the southwest portions of town, had older lines that were likely to be replaced anyway. The new water line testing might better be used in areas where the water lines were newer and may or may not need replacing. — Heard Twyla Kirkeby donated a baby grand piano to the Glencoe City Center. Larson said the piano will replace an older one that was donated earlier. He said Kirkeby’s piano “is in perfect shape.” “It is a very, very nice resource,” for the City Center, Mayor Randy Wilson added. — Heard that discussions have begun on the proposed 2014 budget. Larson said the local levy portion will “remain flat.” The preliminary budget needs to be approved in September, and the final budget must be approved in December. — Heard that the city’s tax increment district (TIF) No. 4 received special legislative approval to be extended until 2023. Larson said a resolution of support also is needed from the McLeod County Board and Glencoe-Silver Lake School Board. — Set a supplemental hearing on the 2013 street improvement project. The hearing is set for 7 p.m., Monday, Aug. 5 The supplemental hearing is needed after a mixup occurred over publishing the notices last May. It was about the time the city’s official newspaper, the Glencoe Enterprise, was sold to The McLeod County Chronicle. The error was not noticed until recently, thus the need to redo the notice procedure. The bids for the work are expected to be opened Aug. 1, Larson said, with the awarding of the bid after the hearing on Aug. 5.

County Board approves replacing culverts washed out in flooding
By Lori Copler Staff Writer The McLeod County Board of Commissioners on Tuesday approved spending up to $50,000 to replace two culverts that were washed out by June 23 flooding. John Brunkhorst, county engineer, said that County Road 74, east of County Road 1, remains closed because of a large culvert that washed out. In addition, there is a need to replace a culvert on County Road 57, southeast of Stewart, but that road remains open. Brunkhorst said three quotes were received to replace the County Road 74 culvert, with the lowest being from Wuetherich Drainage of Norwood Young America at a cost of $9,647.50. However, Brunkhorst said, there may need to be additional work done at the site, but that will not be known until the contractor starts digging. Commissioner Ron Shimanski asked if there were any plans to enlarge the size of the culvert. Brunkhorst said that in an emergency situation, the county could replace a culvert with a like-size one, but anything larger would need approval from the watershed district. The county can take more time to evaluate the County Road 57 culvert situation, Brunkhorst said, since that road is still open. Board Chair Paul Wright asked County Attorney Mike Junge if the board needs to get more firm bids for the work. “One of the exceptions to the bidding statutes is this very type of situation,” said Junge, who added that the Board could go ahead and OK the work because of the emergency situation. The County Board then approved the work with a notto-exceed cost of $50,000 for both culverts. Brunkhorst added that both culverts should qualify for disaster assistance funding. In other highway business, Brunkhorst reported that the County Road 115/Highway 15 roundabout is proceeding on schedule, with paving expected to start next week. “We are moving on time with what we had set for dates,” said Brunkhorst. It is hoped that the roundabout will be complete before the McLeod County Fair opens in mid-August. The County Board also approved a low quote from Hjerpe Contracting, Inc., in the amount of $8,895 to install a septic system at the site of the new Silver Lake/Lester Prairie highway maintenance building in Hale Township. Also approved was a user agreement with the city of Brownton to allow the highway department to hook up to the city’s new municipal natural gas utility for its maintenance shed in Brownton. Brunkhorst said the shed currently uses liquid propane (LP) and “switching to natural gas will be more economical for the long term.”

Bruce and Nelva Lilienthal, rural Arlington, pose with the meteorite he found on their farm during the spring of 2011. The 32-pound, 16-by-12 inch rock is 90
percent iron and around 8 percent nickel. The estimated age of the meteorite is 4.6 billion years, which is about the age of the sun.
Lilienthals make rare find on their Arlington farm
Editor’s note: This article appeared in the Arlington Enterprise in its July 11 edition. By Karin Ramige Cornwell Enterprise Manager here is never a shortage of rocks in a farmer ’s field. Truck loads are taken out of any given field every year. This year is no different for Bruce and Nelva Lilienthal, Arlington. “We haul out trailer loads every year,” Bruce said. Bruce started keeping the more interesting looking rocks that now line their flower beds at their family farm southeast of Arlington. In the spring of 2011, Bruce found an especially interesting rock. It was heavier than any other rock of that size, was a rust color and had a metallic sound to it when tapped. You could hear the metal clang, as Bruce drummed his fingers on the rock on a recent morning sitting at the kitchen table. He put it along the driveway with the other interesting rocks and did not think much more about it until this past spring when Nelva read an article about meteorites in a farming magazine. After looking closely at the pictures that accompanied the article, they thought that the odd rock they had found might be a meteorite. They started to do a little more research on meteorites, which led them to Dr. Calvin Alexander, professor of earth sciences at the University of Minnesota. The Lilienthals said Alexander asked them a few questions over the phone to determine if it might be a meteorite and worth taking a further look. He asked about the size and weight, the sound it makes when tapped, and if it appeared to be magnetic. When they answered all of the questions positively, Alexander was excited to see the rock. They visited Alexander at his St. Paul office for some further testing. Alexander was able to confirm it is in fact a meteorite. The 32-pound, 16-by-12inch rock is 90 percent iron and around 8 percent nickel, with a unique crystalline pattern that is unique to meteorites, the Lilienthals were told by Alexander. They also learned that another meteorite was found near Arlington in 1894, and Alexander estimates that the two are from the same meteorite. In April of 1896, the Arlington Enterprise reported another piece was found in the area and brought into the office. A part of the 1894 meteorite (known as Arlington I) is at the Smithsonian Museum in Washington, D.C. The Lilienthals meteorite is now know as Arlington II. Nelva visited the museum within the last year. She would have never thought that part of a rock in the rock pile at home might be in the Smithsonian. The estimated age of the meteorite is 4.6 billion years, about the age of the sun. As to what they will do with their unusual find, they do not know. They have received numerous calls from people wanting to hunt for meteorites on their property. As things on the farm and interest in their find slows down, they will take it back to the University of Minnesota for further testing. For now it is a hot topic of conversation.

asked the city’s engineering consultants to specifically look at areas like these and come back with solutions. “I have no answer tonight,” Larson replied. Larson said there will be flooding in places, especially at the top end of the system on the north end of the community as the sewers try to cope with the heavy flows. As to the west end of the community, Larson said that system is tied in with the west-ditch system. The city has been working with the Buffalo Creek Watershed District (BCWD) on solutions and funding sources. “Ninety percent of the (west-ditch) system is outside the city limits,” Larson said, which compounds the problem of who owns it, and who pays what share. The possible solutions include cleaning out the west ditch, replacing culverts and utilizing several low farming areas as holding ponds during heavy rain events. “There are still ownership issues,” Larson said, in particular with private landowners abutting the ditch system. With the Willow Ridge ponds, council member Gary Ziemer asked if BCWD also is involved with that system. With 1,100 to 1,200 acres in the watershed north of the city that must drain through the city sewers to get to Buffalo Creek, he asked if farmers doing additional tiling need BCWD and city approval. Larson said BCWD controls that watershed, but farmers do not need city permission to do additional tiling. “They don’t have to ask us,” Wilson added. That’s reality.” But he said more tiling north of the city adds more water faster to the city’s system. “That is a big issue.” The holding ponds are designed to collect some of that watershed runoff, retain it long enough to allow the city sewers to catch up with flows before being released into the city’s collection system. The city staff will now begin to document water levels in the holding ponds for future reference. Wilson said these severe rain events could happen annually or it could be years before the next test of water levels. “It’s a forever process to monitor.”

What if e-cigs catch on, and Vikings stadium has another shortfall?
Our view: Electronic cigarettes could cut into new tobacco tax revenues; expect a new tax in ’14
t seems to be a cat-and-mouse game right now. First, the state Legislature tacked another $1.50 in tax onto the price of a pack of cigarettes in Minnesota last session, now smokers are looking for cheaper alternatives. They may have found one in electronic-cigarettes (ecigs). E-cigs are catching on in popularity, according to a recent Star Tribune article, with sales nationally expected to double to about $1 billion a year. Some e-cigs are disposable like a cigarette, and others are rechargeable with filler cartridges. Instead of tobacco smoke, the ecigs emit a vapor. According to the Star Tribune article, take a drag on the e-cig and it allows the e-liquid, which contains nicotine, to turn into an inhalable vapor. It even has an LED light on the end that glows while taking a drag. It also comes in a variety of flavors. The amount of nicotine in the ecig is about the same as an average cigarette, the Star Tribune article reported. It also can be regulated as to how much nicotine is being used. The e-cig is being promoted as a healthier way to eventually quit smoking by proponents, but opponents worry it will be thought of as a “clean cigarette.” The American Lung Association stated it knows little about e-cigs or the side effects of “vaping,” the Star Tribune reported. Even before the side-effects of ecigs are known, there is talk of banning electronic cigarettes from public venues much like regular cigarettes. No one has claimed, yet, that there is harmful “second-hand vapor.” But be sure, some anti-tobacco government study will soon justify banning “vaping” in public places in the near future. Officials simply cannot let this “end run” take hold and ruin all their efforts to “social engineer” our bad habits.
The McLeod County Chronicle, Wednesday, July 17, 2013, page 4
These “social police” need a solution whether there is a problem or not. After all, they always know what is best for us. Which brings up the point: What happens if e-cigs catch on to the point of eliminating the need for most regular cigarettes? What will that do to the state’s revenue stream from “sin taxes?” Sin taxes, after all, are the lynchpin of paying for the public’s share of the grandiose Vikings stadium boondoggle. You can almost bet that the state Legislature, currently still run by “tax-everything-that moves” DFLers, will find a way to slap a stiff tax on e-cigs next session, and divert that money to the stadium slush fund. Since e-cigs contain no tobacco, however, they are not subject to the additional $1.50 tobacco tax that drove a pack of cigarettes to about $7.50 a pack. When asked, one local smoker said he smokes about a pack a day. At $7.50 a pack, that would cost him over $52 a week. The e-cigs, after an initial investment of $50 for the kit, costs about $16 per refill. Each refill, the smoker claims, can last a week or two. At that rate at $16 per week for a refill vs. $7.50 a pack, this smoker would be saving about $35 a week. But there seems to be a major dilemma for the tobacco opponents. If they really want people to quit smoking, they do not want it to happen too soon. Otherwise, they cannot help fund the Vikings’ Taj Mahal for the next 30 years. So quit smoking, but not too quickly. They still need your tax dollars. These feeble attempts to tie our bad habits in with funding professional sports entertainment is insane. Funding professional sports with any tax dollars is insane on its own merits. — R.G.
She’s right: ‘God looks out for old fools’
I was staring up at the ceiling in my hallway, wondering how a refrigerator was on top of me. I’m Scottish. Glennie is a long-established Scottish name from the Macintosh clan. And no, this was not a part of the Scottish Highlands games of strength and endurance for which the Scots are renown. It was a damn old fool who was trying to move an old rerigerator from his basement after it was flooded for the second time in a decade. It was time to get rid of the rusty old contraption that looked like heck, but still worked. “It was American made,” my son Andrew said. He meant it was built to last. And last it did. The old refrigerator was our basement beverage fridge that was purchased, used, by my wife, before we married in 1981. So it was at least 35 years old or older. It ran well enough, at least until the second time it got its parts wet from basement flooding. I decided to finally part with this old fridge. My son and I took off the door and removed the freezer compartment to lighten the load. It did not make much of a difference. It was still heavy. As we strapped it to a dolly, we opted to have me pull the fridge up bearings. It had the same effect. It was slippery. When I finally got back what little senses remained, I realized I was pinned. I also realized my son was of no help. He was on the other side of the fridge, trapped in the basement. It took me a bit to realize I was on my own and the only way out was to bench press the fridge off of me to free my legs. I could not bench press a fridge in my prime. Somehow, I managed. Adrenaline is amazing. After we righted the fridge and got it out the door and to the curb, we assessed the damage. No broken bones. No pulled muscles. No soreness of any kind. That came a day or two later. But what I realized is I almost killed my son. Had I not held on to the handles of the dolly, the fridge might have slid back down the basement steps. My son had no place to go. He would have went down with the fridge. My late aunt, whenever my late uncle would tell about all the crazy things he did, would always add: “God looks out for old fools!” I now understand what she was talking about.

the basement steps, while Andrew pushed from below. It was all I could do to avoid thinking that I might have to use my new Medicare card before this was done. Several weeks before, we had new flooring installed. I placed cardboard over the floor to protect the new investment from this old fridge. We had “hossed” the old fridge to the last step, which was a bit higher than the others. That last step required a bit more umph to get it up and out. That is when, in a split second, I was looking at the ceiling with a refrigerator on my chest and legs. It happened in a flash. The cardboard slipped from under me and down we all went. I might as well have been doing this on ice or ball-

Letters to the Editor Glencoe Blood drive July 31; all types needed
To the Editor: Thank you for publishing in last week’s McLeod County Chronicle (July 10, page 8A) the thorough Red Cross article regarding the urgent need for blood. I’ll try not to repeat many of the statistics that were so accurately given in the article. Summer is always a slow time for blood donations, but we were notified by the American Red Cross that this summer the level of giving is considerably lower nationwide. I wanted to follow up with an additional direct appeal to any donors in Glencoe and the surrounding areas. The total goal set for us by the Red Cross for this July drive is 112 units. The need is indeed urgent for all donor blood types including O positive, but especially for O negative, A negative and B negative. If you have these blood types flowing in your veins, you have “red liquid gold” that is valuable and life-saving to someone else who desperately needs your help. We specifically also need doublered donors — those who are able to give a “double-dose.” Double donors must wait 112 days between donations, so our double-red donors from the April drive are not eligible to give this July drive, but will qualify again for our November blood drive. We have many slots to fill for July double-red donors. (Regular whole-blood donors must wait 56 days between donations.) Blood is a perishable product and cannot be manufactured; it can only come from volunteer donors. Each blood unit donated can save up to three lives. At our April 2013 blood drive, with a goal of 109 units, we collected 130 units, which had the potential to benefit 390 lives! We received a notice that those perishable donations collected at our April drive were dispersed where most needed to help patients in the following locations in Minnesota: Abbott Northwestern Hospital in Minneapolis, VA Medical Center in Minneapolis, Mayo Clinic in Rochester; some of the donations also were dispersed to three medical centers in Philadelphia, and two hospitals and two medical centers in New Jersey. The Glencoe Community Blood Drive on Wednesday, July 31, is located at the air-conditioned Glencoe City Center ballroom. Our fantastic team of volunteer callers is currently contacting donors, and appointments are being scheduled as you read this article. If you have not been contacted and are able to donate on July 31, please don’t hesitate to contact our scheduling coordinator Nelda at 320-864-3475. Thank you for taking your time to make that donation appointment. The life you save may be someone you know. Charleen Engelmann Coordinator, ARC Glencoe Community Blood Drive

Another pick-up set for July 26
had people unemployed who have never been before in their lives. It is down right scary — the unemployment compensation tided you over until you were able to secure employment again. The sequester cuts will end the unemployment compensation for those unfortunate enough not to have found work. The ultimate chutzpah was when the sequester affected one of the spring/summer breaks for Congress. It took them a matter of hours to lift the furloughs on air traffic controllers because their flights were being delayed. OOPs! — their ox was being gored! I was happy for the air traffic controllers because I think their jobs are of vital importance, but the audacity! Do you see a pattern here? Those affected are the poor, the young, the old, the people who have no political voice. It is about time that Congress thinks beyond the next quarter’s earnings, regardless of what is happening to the Ship of State. The Ship of State needs your attention. Jan Conner Hutchinson We have received great comments and support for conducting the appliance and e-waste curbside pick-up for Glencoe residents that sustained flood damage. We have also received numerous inquiries from residents regarding the pickup of other items such as mattresses and carpet. If you missed the collection, don’t worry, the McLeod County Solid Waste department will be conducting another pickup on Friday, July 26. In addition to appliances and e-waste, we will be including mattresses and carpet to the curbside pickup. All items must be at the curb or the end of the driveway by 8 a.m. on Friday, July 26! Fee schedule: • Item cost — Appliance/Ewaste, $10/unit; mattresses and/or box spring, $15 each; carpet and padding, $20/roll. Pickup is $5 for all items.

Sequester hurt the young, elderly
To the Editor: According to Webster’s International Dictionary, “sequester” means to set apart, separate for a special purpose. To most of us, the only time we hear the term is in trial by jury where the jury is “separated” for purpose of deliberation. Now, thanks to the GOP sequester, $85.4 million was cut from the federal budget which has impacted the lives of millions of Americans. The most short-sighted result of the sequester is the life-changing harm the cuts to Head Start programs have on the next generation of students, workers and citizens. In the next decade, studies will be compiled on the achievement gap, wondering what happened to the students who are under-performing. Duh! If they never learned to read because of cuts to Head Start — what a crime! If they have no aspirations beyond their current status in life, studies are not going to do them a lot of good. When businesses are crying for competent workers to make more money for them, could it possibly be the cuts to Head Start? If the prisons are crowded with people whose only survival depends on how good they are at a life of crime, what then? The long term effects of this “smaller government” mantra will be staggering. Members of the “greatest generation” may also be harmed by this sequester. Funding for the successful “meals on wheels” program for seniors was also affected by this sequester. Malnourished seniors equals older people who may need more intensive care (read cost more) should they become ill. Again, short-sighted … and more costly. All you chest-thumping, US “uber alles” people should be protesting this sequester. The pay for the noncombat military is also being cut by 20 percent — maintenance isn’t being done on ships and other accouterments of the military because the cut in funds to the military defense.

Scouting soybeans now will pay off
Source: David Nicolai, Extension educator - crops, U of M Extension Regional Center, Farmington, 651-4807706, nico0071@umn.edu. Scout your soybean fields for effective control five to 10 days after your post-emergence herbicide application. Scouting will allow you to determine if any timely rescue management practices will be necessary. For those of you discouraged by dry soil conditions that resulted in poor activation of soil residual herbicides, Dr. Jeff Gunsolus, University of Minnesota Extension weed specialist, asks you to remember that later rainfall events will activate the herbicide and reduce the likelihood of lateemerging weeds (waterhemp, for example) from emerging and going to seed in the fall. This summer many soybean fields are exhibiting multiple growth flushes of weeds depending on local rainfall events. Growers need to manage larger individual weed plants in soybean fields if they were not controlled earlier in the growing season. If left untended and without crop competition due to previous too dry or too wet soil conditions, giant ragweed can produce approximately 10,000; common waterhemp 70,000; and waterhemp

100,000 seeds, or more, per plant. Such large additions to the weed seed bank make next year’s weed management tactics less effective because as weed density increases herbicide effectiveness decreases. Seed dormancy also contributes to long-term weed management problems. The estimated time to reduce the weed seed bank by 50 percent is 12 years for common lambsquarters and three years for common waterhemp. Giant ragweed populations tend to decline more rapidly, with estimates of 99 percent reduction within two years if seed is left near the soil surface. A confounding factor to consider is that many giant ragweed and waterhemp populations are likely resistant to glyphosate and/or ALS herbicides. “Keep in mind that the long-term goal of weed management is to deplete weed seed reserves and to reduce
selecting for herbicide-resistance by diversification of weed-control tactics,” Gunsolus said. This would include early season timely rotary hoeing as weeds begin to germinate in the spring and inter-row cultivation of weed escapes as well as effective sequential herbicide programs consisting of a preemergence and post emergence herbicide application programs. Soil residual herbicides that target your most troublesome weeds provide an excellent start in managing herbicide-resistant weeds by targeting them when they are most vulnerable. They also provide the added benefit of reducing crop yield-loss due to weed competition from delayed post emergence herbicide applications.

Wilson, who sort of tired of living the easy life, began work last week for Dougherty & Slane, the railroad contractors, conducting one of the miniature work trains. Railroad work seems a second nature to Ava and he does not feel contented unless he is engaged in some branch of the business. The work is light in nature and keeps him out in the fresh air and sunshine, which seems to agree with him in every way. The local fire department got out and made a practice run Tuesday evening. The boys are getting accustomed to their places and are capable of some rapid work. Victor Pieton, residing on the north end of Lake Marion, died last Sunday evening from the effects of paralysis which seized him on the previous Thursday. He had reached the age of 86 years. About 140 Peik descendents gathered at the city park at Norwood on Friday, July 8, for their ninth annual reunion. Art Hanke, up-and-coming liquor store proprietor, installed five booths in his store the fore part of this week. Mr. and Mrs. Victor Schrupp are the parents of a baby girl, born Tuesday, July 12. and Mrs. George Wedin, and William Paul Kreie, son of Mr. and Mrs. Virgil Kreie, Brownton, were married at the English Lutheran Church with the Rev.

July 18, 1963 Charles H. Warner, Editor The grim reaper continued an onslaught on young people in the Brownton area as John Duehn, 20, son of Mr. and Mrs. Wallace Duehn of this community, was killed in an auto mishap at Glencoe Saturday night. John was a passenger in a car which left U.S. Highway 212 at the Glencoe city limits just before midnight.

GSL area host families sought for 2 students
International high school exchange students are coming to Minnesota to study during the 2013-14 school year, including Glencoe-Silver Lake. According to Kari Becker, area STS Foundation representative, these students will integrate themselves into a local family with the goal of experiencing American culture as an American high school student. In turn they will provide insight into their own culture. STS Foundation, a nonprofit student exchange organization, is proud to help facilitate these relationships, Becker said. “They have been doing so for the past 20 years and look forward to finding new host families in the Glencoe-Silver Lake area and connecting them with exchange students,” she added. Two of the students STSF is looking for host families are coming from Sweden and the Netherlands. “Our Swedish student is a 17-year-old boy who describes himself as a happy, open-minded and social boy. He enjoys sports such as skiing, snowboarding and snowmobiling, downhill cycling and other outdoor activities. “He enjoys traveling with his family and is excited to share this cultural experience with his host family,” Becker said. “The student from the Netherlands is a family-oriented 17-year-old girl who loves to participate in sports, including soccer, tennis and basketball. She enjoys spending time with her grandmother, who she says is very creative. “She is used to helping around the house, and her chores include cleaning her room and her rabbit’s cage as well as loading the dishwasher. She enjoys spending time with her family, going to the zoo or just simply watching a movie with them,” Becker said. “They are both excellent students and will have their own spending money and health insurance,” Becker added. The host family provides a separate bed, family meals and a loving and safe environment. If your family is interested in being a host family, please call Kari Becker at 320-234-3475 or by email to karibeckersts@gmail.com. For more information visit www.stsfoundation.org.

Donnay member on 8thplace tractor design team
After breaking into the top 10 for the first time in 2012, the 2013 team from the University of Wisconsin-River Falls improved its standing with an eighth-place finish overall in the 16th Annual International ¼-Scale Tractor Student Design Competition May 30-June 2 in Peoria, Ill. A member of that team was Alex Donnay of Glencoe. The event, sponsored by the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE), brought 29 teams from colleges and universities across North America together. Representing UWRF were: Carl Ballman of Dennison, Minn., Ben Borgardt of Pickett, Wis., Alex Donnay of Glencoe, Jacob Hannemann of Edgar, Wis., Dietrich Henckel of Viroqua, Wis., Devin Stuhr of Marion, Wis., Jared Wardall of Merrill, Wis., and Dylan Young of Poy Sippi, Wis. Each team spent the 201213 academic year designing and building their tractor. The team was supplied with one 31-hp Briggs and Stratton Vanguard Big Block Engine and a set of Titan tires; the team must fabricate or acquire all other components of their tractors. Over the four-day competition, industry experts judge each design for innovation, manufacturability, serviceability, maneuverability, safety, sound level and ergonomics. Teams also submit a written design report in advance of the competition and “sell” their design in a formal oral presentation on site. Finally, the tractors are put to the test in a performance demonstration comprised of four tractor pulls. One of the first components of the competition is the technical inspection where the brakes, hot surface protection, engine speed and other technical and safety factors are checked. The UWRF tractor passed inspection the first time through earning them first place in the “first time through” award. Their prize was a self-darkening welding helmet. An extracurricular cook-off contest has evolved over the years, initiated by the teams themselves for a break during the long days of competition.

Pearl E. Shanahan, 84, of Glencoe Obituaries Shirley Anne Burandt, 87, of Glencoe
Shirley Anne Burandt, 87, of Glencoe, died Tuesday, July 9, 2013, at the Glencoe Regional H e a l t h Services long-term care unit. A memorial service was held M o n d a y, July 15, at I m m a n u e l Shirley L u t h e r a n Burandt Church in New Auburn, with the Rev. Bradley Danielson officiating. Honorary urn bearers were her grandchildren. Interment was in Fort Snelling National Cemetery. Shirley Anne Norrbom was born April 19, 1926, in Minneapolis, to Elmer and Clara (Higgins) Norrbom. She attended high school in Minneapolis and graduated from there. On Feb. 11, 1947, she was united in marriage to Richard Burandt in Webster, S.D. In 1950, the Burandts purchased a farm in Watertown, where they raised their family. Mrs. Burandt was a dedicated mother; raising nine children was indeed a fulltime job. They stayed on the farm until 1977, when it was sold and they moved to New Auburn. In 1992, they purchased a winter home in Tucson, Ariz. How Mrs. Burandt loved it there; she met friends who quickly became Bingo buddies. The couple spent many happy times there, traveling and visiting casinos in Las Vegas and Laughlin. They sold their beloved winter home when Mr. Burandt’s health began to fail. They resided in an apartment in Glencoe for three years. When Mr. Burandt entered a care facility, Mrs. Burandt moved to Orchard Estates in Glencoe. While living there, she made full use of her scooter. She had a driver’s license, but never drove a car; she instead loved driving around on her scooter, which gave her great pleasure and helped her feel independent. She was a lifelong member of the Waconia VFW Auxiliary and the Royal Order of the Cooties Auxiliary in Hutchinson. She was the first auxiliary president when it was founded. This was a great honor and meant so much to her. In her early years, the Burandts were avid bowlers and were in many championship bowling matches. She also was a great Sheephead player, and played to win. One of her favorite things to do was spending time with her grandchildren. She is survived by her loving family: children and spouses, Virginia Johnson, Gerald Burandt, Dale (Ruth) Burandt, Bonnie (Nick) Walker, David Burandt, Ron Burandt, Howard Burandt, Paul Burandt and Scott (Lona) Burandt; many grandchildren and great-grandchildren; other relatives and friends. She was preceded in death by her husband, Richard; parents, Clara and Elmer Norrbom; brothers and sisters-inlaw, Lowell Norrbom, Richard Norrbom and Fred and Mary Jane Norrbom; sister, Mary Norrbom; brotherin-law and sister-in-law, Marvin and Louise Burandt; sister-in-law and brother-in-law, Betty and Milton Kohls; brother-in-law, Lester Burandt; sister-in-law, Leona Burandt; son-in-law, Fred Rasinski; granddaughter, Valerie Elsie Burandt; and daughter-in-law, Edith Burandt. Arrangements were with the Johnson Funeral Home in Waconia. For an online guest book, go to www.johnsonfh .com. Mass of Christian Burial for Pearl E. Shanahan, 84, of Glencoe, will be held at 11 a.m., Thursday, July 18, at the Church of St. Pius X. The Rev. Ant h o n y Stubeda will be the celebrant. M r s .

Visitation will be held from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m., Wednesday, with an 8 p.m. parish prayer service, all at the church. Visitation continues on Thursday one hour prior to the Mass. Mrs. Shanahan’s sons will serve as pallbearers. Interment will be in the church cemetery. Pearl E. Isenberg was born on Dec. 30, 1928, in Lafayette, to Delphin and Elvira (Anderson) Isenberg. She was baptized as an infant and later confirmed in the faith on May 3, 1942, at the Lafayette Methodist Church by the Rev. Clifford Lindberg. She graduated from Winthrop High School. On Sept. 9, 1952, Pearl Isenberg was united in marriage with John J. Shanahan at the St. George Catholic Church in Glencoe by the Rev. Robert Bastyr. The Shanahans made their home in Glencoe until 1956 when they moved to Chaska. In 1968, they moved to Norwood Young America (NYA) and then settled back in Glencoe in 1998. Over the years Mrs. Shanahan worked in a hair salon, at Shanny’s Bar, Dairy Queen, Laser Engineering, Flouraware and Young America Corporation, but her true dedication was raising her family. She was a member of the Knights of Columbus Auxiliary, the American Legion Auxiliary and the Council of Catholic Women. Mrs. Shanahan was a dedicated member of the Ascension Catholic Church in NYA and the Church of St. Pius X in Glencoe, where she volunteered whenever possible. She was happiest when she could help anyone in need. Mrs. Shanahan enjoyed garage sales, shopping, embroidery and visiting with family and friends. She especially enjoyed attending the sporting events of her children and grandchildren. She cherished her family.

The Glencoe-Silver Lake YES! team was part of their Supermileage vehicle class. It was led by Glencoe-Silver Lake teacher Mike Sundblad and included 24 Glencoe-Silver Lake students. They created a fuel-efficient vehicle for the 25th Minnesota Supermileage Competition, where they performed well. The students successfully built a vehicle that was able to achieve 160 miles per gallon during the competition despite some challenges with the electric start. Their coach was very impressed and commented, “Of all the teams I have taken to the Supermileage Challenge over the past 22 years, these kids were by far the most goal-oriented, organized, best-behaved and focused of any I have worked with.” YES! is a unique experiential learning program where youth in seventh through 12 grades engage in hands-on learning and undertake meaningful projects that not only lead to dramatic demonstrations of renewable energy technology and conservation practices, but also build skills that will directly impact their future in education and our workforce like creativity, innovation, problem-solving, communication, teamwork, and project management. These projects also expose students to how science, technology, engineering, and math are applied in real life. During the 2012-13 school year, 32 YES! teams participated around central, southwest and southern Minnesota. This is Glencoe-Silver Lake’s first year participating in the YES! program. The Glencoe-Silver Lake YES! team is not the only one winning awards: the YES! program was recently awarded the Minnesota Environmental Initiative (MEI) 2013 Environmental Education award. The MEI awards annually honor innovative projects that have achieved extraordinary environmental results by harnessing the power of partnership. YES! empowers youths to partner with their community to create economic and environmental vitality through hands-on learning and teambased projects. The YES! program is provided through a partnership of PWELC and SWIF. Funding for the 2012-2013 season was provided in part by the Minnesota Environment and Natural Resources Trust Fund, a constitutionally-established permanent fund for protecting and enhancing Minnesota’s environment and natural resources, as recommended by the LCCMR. Additional support was provided by AgStar Financial Services and several other businesses and organizations. For more information about YES!, visit www.youth energysummit.org.

Oh, the dog days of summer
I did something last week that I never thought I would do. I stayed up late baking a birthday cake for my in-laws’ 2-year-old golden retriever Kaydee. My husband grew up with pets and is a true animal lover. He loves Kaydee. Sometimes I think he loves her more than me. He refers to her as “his” girl. His mom has even said they “share” her. It works out great for us; no yard cleanup! As her second birthday was approaching, he talked about special ordering a dog-friendly cake from Seattle or somewhere. Not thinking he was serious, I said I could find a dogfriendly cake recipe online. I had forgotten about it until he reminded me that he was going to visit Kaydee (and see his parents) the next day. So to the kitchen I went. I made her a cake and decorated it with homemade dog bones. It was really pretty easy, using ingredients that I had on hand. And from what I hear, Kaydee loved it. Kaydee’s Birthday Cake 1/4 cup vegetable oil 1 cup shredded carrot 1 teaspoon vanilla essence 1/3 cup honey 1 egg 1 cup white or whole-wheat flour 1 teaspoon baking soda 1/4 cup peanut butter Dog biscuits for decoration Low-fat cream cheese for icing Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix together flour and baking soda. Add the remaining ingredients and mix well. Pour all of it into greased baking pan; I just used a loaf pan. Bake for 40 minutes. Wait until cool and then ice with cream cheese (I mixed in a little peanut butter) and decorate. Peanut Butter Dog Treats 1 cup flour Kaydee and Mike
My Turn Now
By Karin Ramige Cornwell 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder 1/2 cup unsalted natural peanut butter 1/2 cup chicken broth or skim milk Preheat the oven to 375°F. Mix together the flour and baking powder. Add the peanut butter and broth. Mix until smooth. Turn dough out onto your work surface and roll to 1/4-inch thickness. Cut with a cookie cutter and place on a cookie sheet. Bake for 20 minutes, or until lightly brown. Let cool, then store in an airtight container. I used a little cream cheese to write her name on the bones before putting them on the cake. I didn’t get to see her eat it, but I heard it went over well. Now, I think I have tried to cook just about everything.

“Every branch that does bears fruit He prunes so that it will be even more fruitful.” —John 15:2 ou don’t love me anymore!” What parent has not heard this cry within their household? Ha! This statement can and all too often comes out of the mouths of babes. Sometimes we, the children of God, his creation, feel this way when we are experiencing suffering, adversity, challenge, and difficulty. We make the mistake of thinking that love is exclusively about blessing and happiness. We must learn not to pity ourselves when we are experiencing our Father’s chastening. Remember, you and I are branches of God’s vine- His Son Jesus Christ. He is trimming us to make us useful. He must either prune us or sever us. Pruning is not punishment, though. Thanks be to God, Jesus has borne the punishment on the cross by giving his life and shedding his blood. If sometimes we suffer under God’s pruning shears, we should imagine how, as a prize winning plant, we may have to be content with one or two blossoms instead of a dozen. Let us thank our God- Father, Son, and Holy Spirit- for planting His seed of the Gospel into the fertile ground of our souls, for continuing to water and nourish that tree of life that is growing within us through baptism and the holy supper. In the meantime, The Gardener will continue to prune you, for “the Lord disciplines those He loves.”

City planners consider a new housing study
By Lori Copler Staff Writer When Dave Nelson came to Glencoe about six months ago as the new Chamber of Commerce director, there were less than 30 homes in the Glencoe zip code area listed on realtor.com. Today, there about 60. Which led Nelson to wonder if it is time for the city of Glencoe to undertake a new housing analysis study; the last one was done in 1997, before the housing market crashed in the great recession. Nelson brought the question of a new study — with an estimated cost of about $15,000 — to the city planning commission Thursday. City Administrator Mark Larson said that if the planning commission feels that a new study is desirable, he would like to include the cost in the city’s 2014 budget. Nelson said a housing study is used by developers, builders, financing organizations and employers to determine what type of housing is needed, and if those housing needs are being met by the city’s current housing. “There’s a wealth of knowledge in a study that you can share with a developer and an employer,” said Nelson. Nelson also said that is important to have the study done by someone outside the city’s government structure to ensure that it is fair and unbiased. Larson said that he feels the studies are used — Grand Meadows was developed based on information from a 2008 study on the need for congregate, assisted living and memory care housing. Nelson said he feels that there is a need for low- to moderate-cost housing in the community, but only a survey will tell the city for sure. He feels the city has a great employment population of what he calls “semi-skilled” workers, with an average income of $12 to $14 per hour. “That is considered low income, but not poverty level,” said Nelson. “They are capable of servicing a housing debt.” If there is a need for low- to moderatecost housing, there is the question of how to Dave Nelson provide it, Nelson said. Typically, contractors do not see as much of a profit on a lower-cost home as compared to higher-end models, so they tend not to seek that kind of work. The city may need to look at ways to lower the upfront costs — such as allowing narrower streets or smaller lots, so that a developer can get more homes on a tract of land, Nelson said, citing material from the city of St. Peter, which did just that to develop lower-income housing. But Larson said he wanted to offer a “caveat” to that idea. “The city’s position, historically, has been to require those wide (40-foot) streets and larger lot sizes,” said Larson. There are some streets less than 40 feet in width within the city, Larson said, but they either existed in developments outside of the city that were later annexed into the city limits, or were private roads that were at some point turned over to the city. Another option, Nelson said, is tax increment financing, in which taxes are collected on the pre-development value of property for a period of time. Once the tax increment period expires, the taxes are collected on the full value of the developed property. But before any of that takes place, Nelson said, the city needs to decide if it needs a new housing study, and how to fund it. “Now that the dust is starting to settle (from the housing crash)… well, yeah, we need to know: where are we?” said commission member Wes Olson. Greg Ettel, another commission member, said that the current housing market has “no relevance to 1997 … so much has changed since then.” Ettel also said a housing study could “inspire development,” which in turn creates employment. “If we want to get people back to work in the community, this could be a way to jump start that,” said Ettel. Lynn Exsted, a commission member, suggested inviting Realtors to a future meeting to get their input on the need for a new study. The commission agreed to discuss the issue further at a future meeting before making a recommendation. The other issue, Nelson said, is paying for a study. The study will not benefit just the city, he said, but employers, banks, contractors and builders. Nelson said if the city moves forward with a study, he could approach some of the other entities about potentially sharing the cost. Larson said a preliminary 2014 budget needs to be done by September, which gives the planning commission time to further consider the need for a study, and how to pay for it.

White Squirrel Day in Plato
Plato’s annual White Squirrel Day last Sunday featured food and fun, including the running of the ducks down the streets of Plato. Above, the three-generation group of Dana Engelmann, her daughter, Amanda Christ and Amanda’s daughter, Corriyn, 2, enjoyed the omelet brunch that kicked off the day of activities. At right, Hutchinson Clown Club member “Bubbles” (Donna Meyer) showed her face painting handiwork to Addison Graupmann, 7, using a mirror. The community church service included performances by the Teen Challenge Choir, and the day’s finale was the Plato Blue Jays’ 4-3 win over visiting Winsted.

fice), a cloak room, entrance and an enclosed stairway to the basement. In 1954, members had paid off the mortgage on the 1922 building and burned the mortgage papers. Many other improvements were made throughout the years to speaker systems, new organs, and the usual maintenance items of roofing, siding and painting, both on the church building and the parsonage. In 1988, the church celebrated its centennial and also became a member of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America when the former American Lutheran Church (ALC), the Association of Evangelical Lutheran Churches and Lutheran Church of America (LCA) merged. In the mid-1990s, after a period in which the congregation’s membership grew by 50 percent, the church began exploring the possibility of a new church home. A long-range planning committee began looking at floor plans, and in 1996, the congregation voted to enter into a building program. Members Bill and Delphine Lindeman donated three acres of land just north of Brownton on Plum Avenue, and the congregation purchased a fourth acre for a building site. A ground-breaking ceremony was held on April 29, 1998. The congregation moved to the new building on March 7, 1999, starting with a service in the old building. The congregation then walked to the new building, bearing the processional cross and other altar items to the new church, where the service continued. A formal dedication ceremony was held in May, with synodical guests as well as former pastors attending. Since then, other additions were made. A bell tower was constructed and the bell from the old building was installed. A new sign was constructed near the entrance to the parking lot, and the window behind the chancel cross was replaced with stained glass. Just seven years after securing its mortgage, the congregation paid it off, and entered into a new loan agreement to fund the paving of the parking lot. A garage was added in 2007. ***** The weekend’s events are open to the public. For more information, see the church’s website, www.gracebrown ton.org. The church is located at 8638 Plum Ave. (County Road 25), just north of Brownton. The phone number is 320-328-5533.

then “met the love of my life,” Chuck, and was married. A common love of music helped draw them together, Eunice Warner said. Chuck Warner is a gifted baritone who sings with the Litchfield choir and, with Eunice, loves to sing at church. “Both Chuck and I love going to church and singing the hymns — the more the better,” said Eunice Warner. Chuck and Eunice had five children in quick order; their oldest, Sue Ann, died at the age of 9. “That was very hard,” said Eunice Warner, “but you make up your mind to survive, and with God’s help, you do.” The Warners’ other children also inherited their parents’ love for music, and incorporated it in their lives, as well. “We have wonderful children,” said Eunice Warner. “They’re always willing to come home and help us with whatever we need.” The Warners first joined a Congregational church when Chuck worked in Princeton, and then joined the church in Brownton when they moved there. “There were remarkable people there at the time,” said Eunice Warner of joining the Brownton Congregational Church, citing Mrs. Ed Mann and Hilda Grenke as two who were especially welcoming. Along with her contributions to the church, Eunice Warner was a public school music teacher and offered private lessons in her home. “They were remarkable children, every one of them,” said Warner. “They were always willing to practice, and they were always willing to listen to what I had to offer.” Warner said she was a bit embarrassed by the ceremony Sunday, but music “comes so easily to me. I can hear something once and memorize. If you asked me to memorize a poem, on the other hand, I’d probably fall flat on my face.” But easy or not, music “has always been a very important part of our lives,” said Warner. “It’s always been a large part of our lives.”
