The start of the Highway 5
Project, which was originally
scheduled to begin on Mon-
day, July 29 and rescheduled
to start Monday, Aug. 5, has
been delayed again.
Due to additional utility
and detour work, the project
is now expected to begin on
Monday, Aug. 12.
That is the latest report
from the Minnesota Depart-
ment of Transportation
(Mn/DOT) if local utilities
can be repositioned in time.
The nearly $5 million pave-
ment replacement project in-
cludes replacing the culvert at
the south edge of Green Isle
and relocating it with a new
channel. The utilities are lo-
cated in the area of the cul-
vert and need to be moved to
accommodate construction,
according to reports from
Mn/DOT.
Once the project begins,
traffic will be detoured to
Sibley County Road 9,
McLeod County Roads 1 and
10 and Carver County Road
50. Heavy commercial traffic
will be detoured to Sibley
County Road 13 and 15 and
then connect to the remaining
detour to avoid the weight-re-
stricted bridge on Sibley
County Road 9.
Knife River Corporation –
North Central of Sauk Rapids
is the contractor on the proj-
ect that includes seven miles
of pavement replacement and
a mill and overlay in Green
Isle. The project is expected
to be completed in late Sep-
tember.

An open house for adjacent
property owners in conjunc-
tion with the Safe Routes To
School project was held at the
Arlington Community Center
on Monday night, July 29.
The core part of the project
will include new sidewalks
on the west side of Second
Avenue Northwest from Elgin
Street to West Alden Street;
rebuilt sidewalks on the east
side of Second Avenue North-
west from West Main Street
to West Douglas Street; and
new and repaired sidewalks
on the west side of Second
Avenue Northwest from West
Alden Street to West Adams
Street.
Alternate A includes the re-
pair and replacement of side-
walks along the north side of
the 100 block of West Chan-
dler Street.
Alternate B includes new
sidewalks along the north
side of the 100 block of East
Chandler Street.
Alternate C includes a new
crosswalk along Second Av-
enue Northeast and the con-
struction of a new sidewalk
on the east side of the Sibley
East Athletic Complex.
Preliminary reports indicate
that the grant for the Safe
Routes To School project will
cover the core part of the
project and all three alter-
nates.
After the open house, the
City Council is expected to
award the bid during its regu-
lar meeting on Monday night,
Aug. 5.
Construction is expected to
start on Monday, Aug. 12.
Construction will last 45
days.
Grant
The City of Arlington, with
Sibley County as a sponsor
and the Sibley East Public
Schools and St. Paul’s
Lutheran School as coopera-
tive partners, received a fed-
eral $199,980 Safe Routes To
School grant during the late
summer of 2011.
Arlington, at that time, was
one of 16 Minnesota projects
funded by the federal pro-
gram and announced by the
Minnesota Department of
Transportation (Mn/DOT).
Of the 16 projects, 12 are
in Greater Minnesota and the
rest are in the Twin Cities
metropolitan area. All of the
grants will be used to im-
prove or build trails and side-
walks for walking and biking.
The total was $3.8 million.
“These projects will make
walking and biking to school
easier for children and more
acceptable to their parents,”
Mn/DOT Commissioner Tom
Sorel said at the time the
grants were announced. “The
grants will mean safety im-
provements in routes to
school so students will be
more inclined to walk to
school. And walking to
school is another way to in-
crease exercise for healthier
kids.”
Overall, there were 82 ap-
plications representing $83
million in projects.

A majority of the updates
regarding the Sibley County
court system involved how
advancements in technology
will change the system for the
better.
Karen Messner from court
administration reported to the
board of commissioners at
the meeting on Tuesday, July
23.
“We are on a very aggres-
sive path with moving to-
wards e-Courts,” said Mess-
ner about speeding up the
transfer of information and
eliminating the large paper
trail. “Soon, everything filed
with the courts will need to
be electronic. This is a huge
undertaking by the State of
Minnesota Judicial Branch. It
will provide increased access
to the courts, not only by our
justice partners, but also by
the public. The demand is
there to have service and to
be able to file documents
24/7. If you file at night, it
will be waiting for us in the
morning.”
In order to prepare for e-
Courts, Wi-Fi was installed
within the courthouse in the
spring. This enables attorneys
and other parties to access
court files. Dual monitors
were recently installed as an-
other step for preparing for e-
Courts.
All documents filed with
the courts are now being im-
aged, a process that started a
year ago.
“We are not to the point of
releasing these documents to
our public terminals, but we
hope to do so by the middle
of September,” said Messner.
“Then the public can see
court files that are accessible
to the public and the docu-
ments in them. We need to
complete an audit process be-
fore we can turn our images
loose. We need to be ex-
tremely careful that we do not
release confidential docu-
ments.”
Messner said the court is in
the process of implementing
a new state directed failure to
appear process for petty mis-
demeanor cases.
“If the defendant does not
appear in court, the state will
automatically take the case
and convict them 10 days
after they missed their ap-
pearance,” said Messner.
“This is not the case though if
there is a request by the pros-
ecutor for a warrant.”
Messner said the Early
Neutral Evaluation (ENE)
process has started in Sibley
and McLeod counties.
“This is a program that
connects divorcing parents
with judges and neutral eval-
uators early in the court
process to provide the oppor-
tunity to resolve issues sur-
rounding their dissolution,”
said Messner. “There are two
avenues in these cases, all
which are heard in McLeod
County.”
Regarding average court
case filings, Messner said the
county is up in the juvenile,
traffic, probate and family
areas and down in civil and
criminal cases. Overall, the
county is down by nine cases
from the same time last year.

ployee, starting in a half-time

ment for Bonnie Paulsen has

County is rapidly moving to e-Courts system
By Dave Pedersen

After declining to pro-
vide a high speed commu-
nication system in the
county on a public basis,
Sibley County Board of
Commissioners listened to
a proposal from a private
investor at the meeting on
Tuesday, July 23.
The county decided not
to bond for a fiber optic
system and way of supply-
ing high speed internet,
cable TV and phone serv-
ice to urban and rural
areas. County Commis-
sioners saw it as too much
of a financial risk.
Representatives of Blue
Sky Broadband gave a
presentation to the board,
wondering if it had an ap-
petite for a private compa-
ny to make a major invest-
ment in the county. In
order to proceed, Blue Sky
will be looking for some
kind of commitments and
contracts from the county
and cities.
The mission of the com-
pany is to provide seam-
less high speed internet
and voice utilizing state of
the art fourth generation
wireless protocols.
The proposal for Sibley
County is to provide infra-
structure in excess of
$5,000,000 over the first
five years to support con-
tinuous coverage for
cities, residents, business-
es and public safety
routes. It would enhance
redundancy where needed
and maintain quality of
service as more customers
join the network.
Services to the county
include mobile data,
phone services, video con-
ferencing, web hosting,
plus TV and video servic-
es. Expectations include
generating revenue from
accounts averaging
$25,000 per month.
“It is a win-win situa-
tion for us, the county and
the residents,” said Amad
Malkawi from Blue Sky
Broadband. “Other com-
panies only focus on large
metro areas. We focus on
smaller less populated
areas. Our goal is to cover
100 percent of your coun-
ty from edge to edge, serv-
ing anything out there.”
Malkawi said his com-
pany does not have to “re-
invent the wheel” because
it works with major com-
panies to form a team and
put a plan together.
“Our proposal for Sib-
ley County is that you
need about 10 towers,
each with four transmit-
ters, enough to provide
continuous coverage in the
county,” said Malkawi.
“We will make sure that
some important areas will
always have coverage.”
The Blue Sky business
model starts with a major
account as a base and
builds from there. Malka-
wi said expectations are
moderate and not aggres-
sive. Prices won’t go up
unless customers make
changes to upgrade servic-
es.
The growth rate for the
last three years of mobile
data download demand
has been 10 times con-
stantly, noted Malkawi. He
added that the demand
will continue to get larger.
In 2009, the average
download per month was
7 MB and jumped to 7 GB
in 2012.
“Whoever provides the
data needs to be able to
keep up with the demand,”
said Malkawi. “You can
build a network, but to
maintain it you must make
sure it is reliable.”
The criteria used by
Blue Sky is to serve areas
that are not served or are
underserved markets in
need of high speed broad-
band internet network,
Areas should not be too
small or large in popula-
tion.
“We want to ensure sus-
tainability or customers

News Briefs
Crash northwest of Gaylord
A two-vehicle accident reportedly occurred at the in-
tersection of County Road 10 and County Road 4 about
five miles northwest of Gaylord at 5:40 p.m. Monday,
July 22, according to the Sibley County Sheriff’s De-
partment.
A 2012 Ford Fusion driven by Sarah N. Moyle, 25,
Hutchinson, was northbound on County Road 4 when a
2000 Ford Taurus driven by Nathan Decker, 24, Gib-
bon, traveled east through the stop sign without stop-
ping, according to the report. The Moyle vehicle struck
the Decker vehicle on its passenger side. Both vehicles
sustained extensive damage.
All occupants were wearing their seatbelts, the report
said. Lynden Decker, 16, who was a passenger in the
Decker car, was transported by the Winthrop Ambu-
lance to a nearby hospital. A medical update was un-
available.
Nathan Decker was issued a citation for failing to
stop at the stop sign.
The Winthrop Fire Department also assisted at the
scene.
Cell phones stolen at SE
Two cell phones were reportedly taken from the boys’
locker room at the Sibley East Senior High School in
Arlington sometime between 8 a.m. to 1:45 p.m. Tues-
day, July 23, according to the Arlington Police Depart-
ment.
iPads reported as missing
Three iPads were reported as missing by the Sibley
East Public Schools on Tuesday, July 23, according to
the Arlington Police Department.
The iPads were issued to three students, but were not
returned to Sibley East at the end of the 2012-13 school
year.
Rose on President’s List
Sibley East graduate Aaron Rose was recently named
to the President’s List at South Central College, North
Mankato, during the spring semester.
To qualify for this honor, a student must be in good
academic standing, earn a minimum of 12 credits, and
achieve a grade point average of 3.500 or better during
the semester.
Enterprise given incorrect info
The Arlington Enterprise used information from the
Minnesota State Patrol website which was later found to
be incorrect in a story on a two-vehicle accident that oc-
curred along Highway 5 near Gaylord at 7:06 p.m.
Wednesday, July 17.
The 1992 Mercury Topaz was driven by Evelyn R.
Dittmer, Glencoe.
Selma Dose, Arlington, was a passenger in the
Dittmer vehicle, not the Dillon vehicle.
Blood drive set for Aug. 27
The Arlington Blood Drive will be held at the Arling-
ton Community Center from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday,
Aug. 27.

Raised Gardens
Vegetables are thriving in the two raised gardens,
built by rural Arlington resident Darrel Alsleben, at
the Good Samaritan Center - Arlington. The endeavor
is a partnerhip between the Statewide Health Im-
provement Program (SHIP), Sibley Medical Center
and Good Samaritan Society - Arlington. The fresh
vegetables will be served in the cafeteria at the nurs-
ing home so the residents can eat fresh, locally
grown, healthy foods. (Top Photo) Mary Bachman,

Ever thought about volun-
teering in your community?
Ever thought about becoming
an EMT? Why you may ask?
Volunteering can be an inter-
esting, rewarding and fun
way to meet new people and
contribute to your communi-
ty! Ambulance services like
Arlington’s are always look-
ing for new members to en-
hance our ability to respond
to emergencies. Arlington is
specifically looking for indi-
viduals to cover daytime
shifts during the week. Inter-
ested in joining? Here are
some questions and answers
to frequently asked questions
that may influence your deci-
sion.
Question: What is required
to become an EMT (Emer-
gency Medical Technician)?
Answer: A person wishing
to be certified as an EMT
needs to successfully com-
plete a 110-hour course and
pass the National Registry
Written Exam.
Question: How often do the
EMT classes meet?
Answer: Usually the EMT
classes are held two nights a
week for 4 hours each night.
The class is usually complet-
ed in about three and one-half
months.
Question: How much does
the EMT class cost?
Answer: Although prices
do vary slightly between
training institutions, the cur-
rent cost for an EMT course
is between $1,000-$2,000.
Most tuitions include the cost
of textbooks and workbooks.
Question: Will the City of
Arlington pay my tuition?
Answer: Yes, the City of
Arlington will pay for your
tuition provided that you pass
the class and become an ac-
tive member, in good stand-
ing, of the Arlington Area
Ambulance Service for a
minimum of one year.
Question: Does working
for the volunteer ambulance
mean I don’t get paid?
Answer: Absolutely not.
When a person “takes call” it
means the person has signed
up for a particular shift (ei-
ther daytime or overnight),

The Sibley East Public
Schools continue to con-
duct an independent inves-
tigation into the charge
against elementary physical
education teacher and var-
sity girls basketball coach
Doug Flieth, according to
Superintendent Jim Ams-
den.
Flieth was recently
charged with one count of
interference with privacy
for allegedly using his cell
phone to record underneath
a hair stylist’s dress in Ar-
lington on Saturday, July 6,
according to the Sibley
County Attorney’s Office.
He was charged on Tues-
day, July 9.
A special non-public
closed meeting under Min-
nesota Statute 13D.05,
Subd.2(a)(2), was held after
the regular school board
meeting on Monday night,
July 15. The posted purpose
of the meeting was to re-
view active investigative
data regarding an employee
of the district.
Another closed session
will be on the agenda for
the next School Board
meeting which will be held
in Arlington at 6:30 p.m.
Monday, Aug. 5, according
to Amsden.
Independent investigation continues
into charge against SE teacher/coach
won’t stay,” said Malkawi.
“Our experience is it takes
time for residents and others
to join. Once we build the in-
frastructure, everybody bene-
fits.”
Blue Sky provides services
in Mankato, Waseca, Spring-
field, St. James, Mapleton,
Amboy and Waldorf to name
a few in this area.
County Commissioner Bill
Pinske asked if there was an
impact to the recently activat-
ed Armor Emergency Radio
system. Malkawi said the
radio system is completely in-
dependent and not used for
transmitting data. However,
emergency activity can be co-
ordinated with the help of the
data system, letting everyone
know what is going on.
County Administrator Matt
Jaunich said he will take the
proposal to the technology
committee to look at how this
may fit the needs.
Timing of implementation
is different from cable or
fiber, said Malkawi. A broad-
band system can be up and
running in six months com-
pared to five or six years to
build out a fiber or cable sys-
tem.
“That is why 4G is taking
off, because it is easy to de-
ploy,” adds Malkawi. “It no
longer takes years.”

After over 40 years of pro-
viding meals once a day for
seniors at the Hillside Court
Apartments, the Le Sueur
senior dining site closed on
Wednesday, July 31, accord-
ing to an article in the Le
Sueur News-Herald.
The closing, blamed on the
loss of funding, is due to the
recent federal sequestration
that brought automatic spend-
ing cuts to programs across
the country.
Though the site in Le
Sueur is being closed, meals
will still be provided for sen-
ior dining sites in Henderson,
Montgomery and Le Center.

Letter To The Editor
Over the years, there have been discussion and infor-
mal proposals to downsize the Minnesota State Legisla-
ture. The discussion and informal proposals have never
been taken seriously though because legislators do not
want to vote themselves out of a job.
The prime time to downsize the State Legislature
would have been before redistricting about two years
ago. Although that timeline has passed, the topic is still
worthy of a healthy conversation today.
Minnesota currently ranks 21st in population in the
United States, but it has the largest State Senate with 67
members and the ninth biggest State House of Represen-
tatives with 134 members. In comparison, Wisconsin has
33 state senators and 99 state representatives.
The reduction in the number of state senators and state
representatives, according to some estimates, could save
taxpayers about $3 million to $4 million a year in
salaries, travel expenses and daily stipends. That includes
the salaries of their staff members as well.
A move to downsize the number of legislators may also
reduce the constant gridlock at the State Capitol in St.
Paul and create a more focused atmosphere.
The topic is worthy of a healthy conversation, but,
much like term limits, the issue will never be taken seri-
ously by politicians because they do not want to vote
themselves out of a job.

A bunch of new recruits are mak-
ing their first parachute jump.
The sergeant gives instructions:
“After you jump out of the plane,
count slowly to 10. Your parachute
will automatically open. If it doesn’t,
pull the emergency cord. When you
get to the drop zone, there’ll be
trucks waiting to take you back to
the base. Move out!”
As scared as they are, they all
make it out the door.
The last recruit jumps out and
slowly counts to 10 -- nothing. He
frantically fumbles around and finds
the emergency handle. He jerks on
the cord, and it comes off in his
hand.
Raising his head to the heavens,
he screams, “I bet them trucks
ain’t waiting either!”

A man walks into a bar and orders
three beers.
The bartender brings him the three
beers, and the man proceeds to alter-
nately sip one, then the other, then
the third, until they’re gone.
He then orders three more and the
bartender says, “Sir, I know you like
them cold, so you can start with one,
and I’ll bring you a fresh one as
soon as you’re low.”
The man says, “You don't under-
stand. I have two brothers, one in
Australia and one in the Ireland. We
made a vow to each other that every
Saturday night, we'd still drink to-
gether. So right now, my brothers
have three beers, too, and we' re
drinking together.”
The bartender thinks it’s a won-
derful tradition, and every week he
sets up the guy’s three beers.
Then one week, the man comes in
and orders only two. He drinks them
and then orders two more. The bar-
tender says sadly, “Knowing your
tradition, I’d just like to just say that
I'm sorry you’ve lost a brother.”
The man replies, “Oh, my
brothers are fine -- I just quit
drinking.”

To The Editor,
Let me just state I that I have no
doubt that the physical problems
with the structures of both schools at
Sibley East are real and that there
needs to be something done. But I
have to admit, some of the problems
seem to be pointing to a bigger
problem, a lack of planning for rou-
tine maintenance. Why do we think
that we can defy Minnesota weather
and not replace flat roofs when it's
deemed necessary. I am not ques-
tioning the quality of work in the
first place, but when it has been 30
years on a roof that has a 20 year
lifespan expectancy, why wasn't a
new roof budgeted before we had it
leaking? Mold and mildew just fol-
lows when the roof leaks along with
a host of other problems. We have
lived in our old house a bit over 30
years and have replaced the roof two
times. When you buy 20-year shin-
gles, don’t think you’re guaranteed
20 years out of them. But replace
the roof before the leaking begins.
Reading about the water on the
gym floor and the end result was no
surprise but geez, who did that in
the first place? You can’t leave
water sit on wood floors and not ex-
pect damage.
As far as the usage of particle
board on an outside project, that just
screams cheap! And that end result
was no surprise either. Who built
that and why was it allowed?
I know this fixes nothing, but I
feel the need to express an opinion.
A difference of opinion makes the
world go round. In my opinion, give
me my 100 year old house to ride
out a tornado anytime versus a new
house. The 2x4’s were 2x4’s back
then and particle board was nonex-
istent. If our house hadn’t been
maintained though, I’m sure I would
feel differently.

Maintenance issues are due to lack of planning
To The Editor,
As you may have seen last week
on the news, the Minnesota Depart-
ment of Human Services (DHS) was
cited by the federal government for
"significant, ongoing noncompli-
ance" with federal laws that require
eligibility checks to be performed
for those receiving certain govern-
ment benefits.
Under current law, DHS is re-
quired to verify the income and eli-
gibility of those who receive assis-
tance such as childcare subsidies
and welfare. Without these checks,
there's the potential for millions in
improperly distributed benefits. Tax-
payers deserve better than this. At a
time when the Democrats are pour-
ing millions of dollars into new gov-
ernment programs, and are paying
for it by raising taxes on Min-
nesotans at every income level, it's
outrageous that we aren't first work-
ing to ensure that every dollar of
waste, fraud, and abuse has been
identified within government agen-
cies to save valuable taxpayer dol-
lars.
What makes this even more outra-
geous is that this isn't the first time
that DHS has been cited for non-
compliance. This has been an issue
for several years now, and despite
promises that they would address
the problem, the seemingly willful
noncompliance continues. When
will the agencies be held account-
able for violating federal law? I
know if you or I were deliberately
ignoring laws and rules at work that
it wouldn't be long before we were
fired. Yet DHS is allowed to violate
these laws year after year with no
consequence, offering empty prom-
ises and empty assurances that the
problems will be resolved, and that
taxpayer dollars are being spent re-
sponsibly.
I will work to keep you informed
of this pressing issue. I will be mon-
itoring the situation next session and
ensuring that DHS is held account-
able, and that they provide answers
to the legislature why the noncom-
pliance has continued, what they're
doing to correct these problems, and
whether or not they have truly
worked to identify areas of fraud to
prevent taxpayer dollars from being
wasted.

DHS cited for ongoing non-compliance

Congratulations, Minnesota, on
only misdirecting $38 million in
payments last year for the exploding
food stamp program, which added
51,000 to its rolls in the Gopher
State.
Here’s your $1.2 million bonus.
That’s the amount the state got
from the U. S. Department of Agri-
culture for enrolling thousands more
residents to the rolls, despite having
a 5 percent error rate.
Recently released USDA statistics
show Minnesota logged one of the
highest payment error rates in the
country, ranking 40th for mistakes
in 2012 in the Supplemental Nutri-
tion Assistance Program.
The Minnesota Department of
Human Services Quality Control
Section reports error findings to the
USDA monthly to “ensure SNAP
participants receive the correct ben-
efits, and to help preserve public
confidence in the program.”
Minnesota DHS officials did not
provide a response to inquiries from
Watchdog Minnesota at the time of
this posting.
About four percent of the errors
involved an estimated $30.4 million
in overpayments to food stamp re-
cipients. About 1 percent involved
an estimated $7.63 million in under-
payments to SNAP clients, a com-
bined error rate in Minnesota of just
more than 5 percent.
That compares to a 3.42 percent
average payment error rate across all
states, the best showing yet for the
program nationally.
“We are working hard to ensure
the taxpayer investment in SNAP is
spent wisely, and that those who are
eligible for the program receive the
correct amount of benefits — not
too much, and not too little,” said
Kevin Concannon, USDA Under
Secretary for Food, Nutrition and
Consumer Services in a recent re-
lease.
The mistakes add up faster and
are more costly with Minnesota’s 87
counties handling twice as many
food stamp recipients as a decade
ago. The number of Minnesotans
signed up for food stamps reached
555,000 in April, compared to
235,000 in 2003.
Total payments in Minnesota have
almost tripled in the last decade in
unadjusted dollars, jumping from
$227 million in 2003 to $750 mil-
lion in 2012. The amount of misdi-
rected SNAP funds also more than
doubled from $18.1 million in 2003
to $38 million last year.
The most common mistakes iden-
tified were errors in applicants’ in-
come calculations, data entry, identi-
fying and deducting shelter and util-
ity expenses, lack of documentation
and verification requests.
The state’s 2012 program evalua-
tion recommended that counties im-
plement mandatory outside reviews
of cases involving income, the

Raymond A. Hoffmeyer, 92, Stewart
July saw numerous laws
from the 2013 session take
effect. One of them was the
Health and Human Services
budget, which included a five
percent increase for nursing
homes. The majority of that
is going toward employee
pay raises.
“It was important to get
this first step done this ses-
sion,” said State Senator
Kevin Dahle (DFL-North-
field).
“These hard working indi-
viduals take care of some of
the most vulnerable members
of our community and it is
essential we provide them
with the resources they
need.”
Dahle was a strong advo-
cate for increasing pay for
nursing home workers during
the past legislative session.
After meeting with adminis-
trators and staff at long-term
care facilities throughout the
district, he was motivated to
take a leading role in pushing
the recent legislation through
the Senate.
“Senator Kevin Dahle has
been a strong advocate for
seniors and their caregivers at
the State Capitol,” said Patri-
cia Vincent, CEO of Three
Links Care Center in North-
field. “He recognized that
caregivers and facilities were
approaching a crisis situation.
His support for investment in
long term care helped secure
the first funding increase we
have seen in more than five
years. We look forward to
working with Senator Dahle
in the future on securing long
overdue and sustainable fund-
ing that truly meet the needs
of seniors and those who pro-
vide them with quality care.”
The five percent increase
was a long overdue necessity,
but it is just a beginning of
the funding issues that need
to be addressed in Minneso-
ta’s long-term care facilities.
Facts:
• Workers had not had a
pay increase in the last five
years.
• Wages have not kept up
with inflation.
• Some employees live at
the poverty level and work
two or three jobs to make
ends meet.
• Care facilities have seen
massive turnover rates which
compromise the quality of
care they would otherwise be
able to deliver.
• Even with the recent in-
crease, wages have still not
kept up with inflation, which
continues to endanger the
growing population of seniors
in Minnesota.
Nursing home increase takes effect
biggest factor leading to mis-
takes. The report said the re-
views could help prevent mis-
taken payments and save time
“collecting the debt which can
often lead to intercepting
household’s tax refunds when
the debt is not voluntarily re-
paid.”
Despite record numbers of
food stamp recipients, the an-
nual program review esti-
mates that almost 300,000
Minnesotans eligible for food
stamps do not currently re-
ceive SNAP assistance.
A University of Minnesota
study released in May found
recipients collected an aver-
age of $278 in food stamp
benefits per household in
2012. UOM researchers look-
ing into SNAP recipients’ nu-
tritional intake found that
“adults and children in house-
holds participating in SNAP
obtained an average of 43 per-
cent and 39 percent of their
total daily calories from solid
fats, alcohol, and added sug-
ars respectively, twice that of
the most generous discre-
tionary calorie allowance in
the MyPlate food guidance
system. Overweight and obe-
sity rates are higher among
women and children in house-
holds participating in SNAP
compared to low-income non-
SNAP participants.”

tacted at tom@watchdogmin-

and the person will receive a
nominal hourly fee for being
on call, The expectation for
that person that is “on-call” is
that they can respond to the
ambulance base within five
minutes once their pager goes
off indicating they are needed
for an ambulance call. Once
the pager goes off, then the
EMT will receive an hourly
wage for the length of the
call.
Question: Are there any ad-
ditional training requirements
once a person passes the EMT
class?
Answer: Yes there are. The
Arlington Area Ambulance
Service meets the first Mon-
day of each month to cover
business, scheduling and
training. These meetings gen-
erally take about two hours.
An EMT refresher course is
required every two years to
maintain license.
If you have any other ques-
tions or are interested in join-
ing the Arlington Area Ambu-
lance Service, please feel free
to contact a member of the
Arlington Ambulance or
email Arlington Area Ambu-
lance Service Manager Kevin
Sullivan at ksullivan@arling-

Forgot to buy a license?
Then connect to the Min-
nesota Department of Nat-
ural Resources (DNR)
mobile licensing page to
purchase select fishing
and hunting licenses via a
smartphone.
“This service is a con-
venience for people who
need a license when
they’re on the go,” said
Steve Michaels, DNR li-
cense program director.
“Not every type of license
is offered but the mobile
purchase site is ideal for
people who have yet to
purchase a fishing, small
game or state stamp vali-
dation and suddenly dis-
cover that they need one.”
Customers who pur-
chase off the mobile site
won’t receive a conven-
tional paper license. In-
stead, they’ll receive a text
message or email that
serves as proof of a valid
fish or game license to
state conservation officers.
More than 1,100 sales
of electronic licenses have
been logged since the mo-
bile site’s soft launch in
late June.
“The site isn’t, as yet,
full service,” Michaels
said. “There are features
and products in the works.
Even so, mobile license
purchasing is a conven-
ience DNR has not offered
before and the sales num-
bers show our customers
are responding.”
License types available
for purchase on the mobile
site include short-term an-
gling, individual angling,
resident combination an-
gling, resident individual
sports, resident combina-
tion sports, small game
and state stamp valida-
tions. Any license that re-
quires a site tag such as
deer or turkey is not avail-
able for mobile purchase.
Once a customer pur-
chases and receives mo-
bile license information by
text, email or both, he or
she must be able to pro-
vide the email or text in-
formation to a DNR en-
forcement officer upon re-
quest as proof of a valid li-
cense.
Mobile device users will
automatically be identified
when visiting the DNR
website and electing the
“Purchase” button at the
bottom of the page.
Minnesota residents 21
and older who never have
purchased a hunting or
fishing license can’t pur-
chase a license electroni-
cally. They should initially
purchase from a license
agent or call DNR at 888-
646-6367 and provide
their driver’s license num-
ber so electronic purchas-
ing can be enabled.
The mobile site is for
purchasing only. It is not a
mobile version of the
complete DNR website.
All licensing informa-
tion such as seasons,
dates, times, eligibility or
restrictions should be re-
viewed before a mobile
purchase is completed.
Similar to the licenses
purchased via the DNR
website or by phone, a 3
percent convenience fee
will be added to the cus-
tomer’s order total.
License dollars are the
fiscal foundation of fish
and wildlife management
in Minnesota. License rev-
enue is dedicated to man-
aging 5,400 fishing lakes,
thousands of miles of
rivers and streams, 1,400
wildlife management areas
and more than 150 field
conservation officers.
Buying a license means
lakes are stocked and
managed, fish and game
laws are enforced and con-
servation efforts happen
on the ground.

The Arlington Race Horse
Association gave their new
pacer Bud K. his first work out
on the track Monday evening. It
was rumored that Doc Torrey
and some of his warriors in the
Legion were hiding in the hay
loft of the race horse barn
watching the horse perform
armed with stop watches.
Bartley Hunt’s new oil station
on Main Street opened up for
business Monday. With the ex-
ception of a few minor details
the station is completed, having
every accommodation for the
motorist, with air and water con-
nections conveniently placed
and also a lavatory.
Fred Eickschen is reported to
have threshed a five-acre field of
Marquis wheat last week which
went 26 bushels to the acre.
This is a record for this section,
we believe, and the general av-
erage from all reports will be
closer to 15 bushels per acre.
At the annual meeting of St.
Ann’s Altar Society of St.
Mary’s Church last Sunday the
following officers were elected:
Mrs. Nick Thomes, president;
Mrs. B. Hunt, vice president and
Mrs. Math Hensler, secretary
and treasurer.

The Nagel Packing Co. has
completed erection of a new
building on the lots east of the
Paul Soeffker home. The com-
pany has a considerable acreage
of sweet corn planted in this
area. When the corn reaches the
edible stage it will be picked
and prepared for shipment in re-
frigerated trucks to markets in
larger cities to the east and
south.
The Methodist W.S.C.S. en-
tertained at the parsonage, Sun-
day, July 19, honoring Rev. and
Mrs. Kufus on their 35th wed-
ding anniversary. Rev. and Mrs.
Kufus were the recipients of
many beautiful gifts and cards.
Mr. and Mrs. Roland Kufus, son
and daughter-in-law of Rev. and
Mrs. Kufus, who recently re-
turned from Greece, were pres-
ent.
It is reported that Peter Her-
rmann sold his home in West
Arlington to Ronard Poplau and
purchased the Schafer home in
Green Isle. The Herrmanns will
become future residents of our
neighboring village and the
Poplaus will leave the Bovy
farm southeast of town to make
their home in Arlington.

It was their first fishing trip of
the year and what a catch! Floyd
Hebeisen and his son, Ross,
went up to Lake Michigan three
weeks ago and came back with
20 fish in all. They caught 19
king salmon and one rainbow
trout. Their biggest catch was a
28 pound salmon. Floyd says
they were out on the lake for
about 20 hours which means
one fish per hour.
