‘No Time to Quit’ is author’s first book
Gail Lipe details mother’s life with cerebral palsy
By Rich Glennie Editor ew author Gail Lipe of Chaska is no stranger to writing, or the area. Lipe, who just published her first book, “No Time to Quit: Life in a Broken Package,” is a former staff writer with The McLeod County Chronicle. Her 144-page book is about her mother, Gail Johnson, who was born with cerebral palsy and was not expected to survive. But now 81, Johnson has defied all odds, comfounded medical experts and overcame obstacles as she blazed a trail for many handicapped persons who followed. Johnson is a leader, an advocate and an inspiration, Lipe said of her mother. In 1932, in a small town in Kansas, Johnson was born prematurely and weighed one pound, 9 ounces. Her twin brother died two days after birth, and her mother nearly died as well. Lipe said the family was told at the time to buy three cemetery plots, because all three were not likely to make it. Gail Johnson actually died, but was revived by a nurse, who refused to let it happen, Lipe wrote. There were no incubators available at the hospital. The premature infant was nursed with an eye dropper and kept warm by being placed between hot pads. Small pieces of cotton were used for diapers, Lipe wrote. “The biggest miracle is that Mom lived,” Lipe wrote. “She lived because a series of critical decisions were made. If anyone of them changed, the outcome would have been very different.” Lipe wrote that the nurse, Sarah Bradley, refused to follow the doctor’s advice to call the morgue. “She did not quit (on the infant). Her compassion and empathy for my grandfather, Wayne Buttel, paved the way for future generations,” Lipe wrote. Nurse Bradley decided not to give up without a fight, and that her neighbor, Wayne, was not going to lose all
City to televise, clean some of its sanitary sewers
By Rich Glennie Editor In an effort to find major trouble spots, Glencoe City Council on Monday night approved the spending of about $23,000 to televise and clean out city sanitary sewers. Gary Schreifels, city public works director for water and wastewater, said this is a direct result of the June 23 “rain event.” He said with rains like that — 4.3 inches in 90 minutes — flows at the wastewater treatment plant jump in a matter of minutes. But the meters at the treatment plant did not pick up flows from some manholes, and that may be an indication of a blockage in the lines. He said there may be some constrictions in the lines leading into the treatment plant, especially the deep trunk sewer line that runs parallel to Highway 212 to the plant. Schreifels said there may be some blockage that causes some of the manhole sewers to backup, as happened on June 23. This has been a nagging issue for years, Schreifels said, and the deep trunk line was televised and cleaned after the 2002 “rain event.” But he said the lines are so deep, the city staff does not have the proper equipment to clean them. Thus, the need for specialized equipment to do the work. But that is just one part of the flooding issue that occurred on June 23. Schreifels said the city has been looking at sewer lines for years, seeking to find where storm water is getting into the sanitary sewer lines, especially in the central part of the city. “There are always hidden things once we start televising,” Schreifels said. The televising of lines will include lines running from the north central holding ponds through the center of the city. City Administrator Mark Larson said staff also is reviewing sewer maps of the city to determine possible problem areas. He stressed the surface ponding is not addressed with this project, unless it involves sanitary sewer backups into homes. He said, hopefully, those issues can be found and cor-

Pioneerland Library asks for more county funding
By Lori Copler Staff Writer The Pioneerland Library System is seeking $193,138 in funding from McLeod County for 2014, a 3 percent increase, or $5,625, over 2013. According to statistics provided to the County Board, the library system has not had an increase in four years. Jackee Fountain, head librarian for Glencoe and Brownton, and Pam Dille, head librarian for Hutchinson and Winsted, appeared before the County Board Tuesday to review library activities and make the funding request. Fountain said that while total circulation of library materials has decreased, most other areas have increased, including the total number of materials available, the use of library computers, the number of registered card holders and the total number of visits to the county’s four public libraries. The total circulation has decreased to 171,039 from 182,853, but Fountain pointed out that the circulation figure does not include electronic books (“e-books”). The county libraries gained 1,150 new card holders in 2012, and saw an increase in usage of library computers of 1,211. The number of visits to libraries increased by 468 visits. Fountain also said the libraries have noticed an increased interest in reading by teenagers. “There’s been a big increase in teen reading,” said Fountain. “They’re getting back to reading.”

New public defender knows what he is in for
By Rich Glennie Editor t is a wonder any attorney would wade into the public defenders’ realm with the part-time pay, large caseloads and added stress, but Scott Nokes, 49, of the Glencoe Law Office did just that on June 19, when he was named a public defender in McLeod County District Court. He replaces Michelle Barley, a longtime McLeod County public defender, who was promoted to managing attorney for the western half of the large First Judicial District that stretches from Glencoe east to Hastings. She is now based in Chaska. Her area includes not only McLeod and Sibley counties, but Scott, Carver and LeSueur counties as well. Barley also is a one-half time public
defender for Scott County. Nokes is not fazed by the daunting tasks of a public defender. He said he knew what he was getting into, after all, he had been a volunteer for nearly five years as he worked toward his law degree, much of that working with public defenders. “Public defense is not for everyone,” Nokes admitted. He was among 68 attorneys applying for the threequarters time position, and was among the six finalists interviewed. He was selected to join Fran Eggert and Tiffany Doherty-Schooler as one of the three public defenders in McLeod County. Like Eggert, Nokes’ cases will mainly be gross misdemeanor and felony cases. Nokes said when Barley left, he was
given her 40 active cases. “Replacing Michelle Barley is impossible,” Nokes said, because she was so well respected by the court staff, judges and other attorneys. He said Barley was his mentor. But Nokes also has experienced the routine of being a public defender when he acted as “second chair” during the David Bustos murder trial earlier this year. He said he worked on the Bustos case as a volunteer for Eggert, Bustos’ public defender, and did much of the “research” for Eggert. “That was noticed in the interview (process),” Nokes said of his application for the public defender position. Public defenders tend to stay a long time in McLeod and Sibley counties, Nokes said. “There is low turnover in this area.”
Nokes said he originally applied for the position currently occupied by Doherty-Schooler, “but I had just passed the bar (exam).” He added he was glad he was not selected at that time. “Now that I’ve been here awhile, I’m more established.” He works about 30 hours a week as a public defender, or about three-quarters time. But he actually puts in about 70 hours a week, and that includes his private practice located across 11th Street from the county courthouse. “We say we are a private attorney and do public defense, not the other way around,” Nokes added. Because he was a long-time volunteer, the transition to the public de-

Woman robs Cologne bank
COLOGNE — Carver County Sheriff Jim Olson reported that on Aug. 15, at 12:30 p.m. deputies responded to a robbery at Klein Bank, 210 Paul Ave. N, Cologne.

The teller set cash on the counter, which the suspect picked up and then left the bank. No one was injured during the encounter. The suspect is described as a white female, approximately 5-foot-8-inches tall, and in her early to mid-twenties. She was wearing a black head scarf, a loose black blouse and loose black slacks. She wore black framed sunglasses with gold trim on the temples.

Piano donation to City Center
Twyla Kirkeby, seated, presented a baby grand piano to the Glencoe City Center recently. The piano will replace one that was donated to the City Center when it first opened.

Continued from page 1 fender position “made it a whole lot easier.” He already knew many of the key players in the court setting. Nokes admitted the volume of cases for public defenders “is challenging,” and it does not allow a lot of time to devote to clients. “You need to be very efficient,” with the time available, Nokes said, “and still provide a high level of representation.” He said 22 years in the military, along with the arduous task of remodeling the former theater into his law office, are examples “that I don’t do anything short term. I do things for the long haul.” Doing something a lot also makes for more efficient use of time, he added. “The more you learn, the easier the wheels turn.” Despite attempts to increase funding for public defenders as case loads increased in recent years, problems remain. Nokes said about four or five years ago, there were deep cuts made and a state hiring freeze put in place for public defenders. “It’s still going on.” And in some instances, judges now need to appoint private attorneys to represent some cases, especially young juvenile cases, Nokes said. Those additional court costs — about $75 an hour — is borne by the counties, Nokes added. Some of those cases involve issues like child protection or terminating criminal rights. His appointment as a public defender is permanent, Nokes said, and it is a state union job. “All out-state public defenders are part time,” Nokes said. Most are three-quarters time. “I feel that’s (part time) a strength. You’re not just a public employee; you’re an attorney first and a public defender second.” As to the responsibility of being a public defender, Nokes said it is “like one against an army,” with the state of Minnesota on the other side. “It’s the weight of the state on your shoulders.” But he said a public defender cannot get too “emotionally invested in a case. The ultimate client is the Constitution.” Besides his duties as a public defender and private attorney, Nokes still teaches one night a week at Brown College in the Twin Cities.

City to seek state bond funds for Morningside
By Rich Glennie Editor A resolution to get the city’s Morningside Avenue extension project included in the next state bonding bill was approved by Glencoe City Council on Monday on a 4-1 vote. Council member John Schrupp voted no, but did not offer an explanation. City Administrator Mark Larson presented the resolution to the McLeod County Board on Tuesday morning. The Morningside project is a joint city-county effort, and the request to the state would come through the County Board. It was the recent change in the funding formula that forced the city to seek state funds. It was reported earlier in August that the old 70/30 percent split between the county and city was changed to a 50/50 percent split by the County Board. That increased the city’s share of the extension project. The project includes building a new roadway north of 11th Street near Coborn’s, over the railroad tracks and several blocks north to 16th Street, east of the high school. Because of additional drainage issue in the area, the original $1.9 million project increased to $3.3 million. The city’s original share was $500,000, and the city planned to advance borrow on its municipal state aid to pay its share. But when the county changed to the 50/50 split, the city’s share became more than was available in the municipal state aid fund. Larson said local legislators state Rep. Glenn Gruenhagen, R-Glencoe, and state Sen. Scott Newman, RHutchinson, will be asked to author legislation seeking $1.5 million in state bonding to help fund the Morningside extension. In its resolution, the city stated: “Additional funding is needed to keep this important project on schedule and within budget so that local taxpayers are not burdened with additional inflationary cost increases.” In other matters, City Council: • Approved a $1,000 a year increase in the Glencoe Fire Relief Association pension fund. The pension per firefighter would increase to $2,300 for each year of service. The city also agreed to continue to contribute $68,795 to the relief association fund. • Approved $19,724 in expenditures at the wastewater treatment plant for effluent controls and for a variable frequency drive. The items were budgeted for in 2013, said Gary Schreifels, city public works director for water and wastewater. • Approved a request to the Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) to do a speed study on a section of Highway 22 leading into Glencoe from the west. The study will look at the current speed limits coming into and going out of Glencoe at about Cedar Avenue. The aim is to reduce that speed from 55 mph to 35 mph starting at about Glen Knoll. • Heard that tax increment financing (TIF) District 16 (Grand Meadows) is doing better than expected and could be paid off by 2015 instead of 2022. The developer of Grand Meadows upfronted the funds and gets an annual reimbursement of its taxes. But Larson said the tax increments are generating more taxes than expected. He said those tax increments cannot be spent on anything else, so may be repaid sooner. A resolution was unanimously approved. • Heard that the annual flyin and breakfast will be held Saturday at the Glencoe Municipal Airport. “It’s a wonderful event,” said Mayor Randy Wilson. Council member Dan Perschau said it is the airport’s “main event of the year,” and an opportunity for the public to see all that is happening at the airport. • Received a concurring resolution from the GlencoeSilver Lake School Board and McLeod County Board to continue TIF District No. 4 for another 10 years. Glencoe received special legislation to extend the life of the TIF district, but also needed concurring resolutions from the other two government units. • Heard that work will begin in the coming weeks to clean the west water tower. The east water tower is expected to be cleaned next year, Schreifels said. • Heard from Larson that there was more damage than first thought from the June rains and floods. The city is working with FEMA to see what damages are eligible for reimbursements under the federal disaster relief program.

handicapped, and (to show) the handicapped there was more to life than being handicapped,” Lipe said. Lipe said her mother was in the forefront of mainstreaming of the handicapped into classrooms and society, while stressing that the handicapped were no different than anyone else. “To me, her story is my story,” Lipe said. She said the need to share her mother’s story really hit home when Lipe was 13 and in the audience at one of her mother’s speeches. She knew her mother’s story well by then, but Lipe said she saw for the first time the effect it had on others. She said many adults were near tears, and all the children were quiet as her mother spoke. “I decided to start taking notes, and about 10 years ago began taping conversations. The story needed to be out there,” Lipe said. ***** But the process of getting the story into print was not easy, Lipe said, and she vowed not to self-publish. Lipe, who worked at a small bookstore after leaving The Chronicle in 2008, said she had seen “a lot of garbage” being self-published. “The quality of much of the writing was poor,” she said. And that was not what she wanted with her story about her mother. But there is difficulty in getting work published, and Lipe said that view changed a bit after she entered a Women of Faith writing contest, sponsored by WestBow Press, a division of Thomas Nelson, a large publishing company. While she did not place in the contest, her mother’s story caught the eye of an editor there. “They (WestBow Press) contacted me,” Lipe said, because of what she had written for the contest. Her mother was in the hospital at the time, when a WestBow representative came to visit and ask questions. After hearing the story, “he was choked up,” Lipe said. He said he wanted to get behind the story and get it published. “Everything fell together,” Lipe said. On March 3, the project moved foward toward publication. “It felt more like a partnership than self-publishing,” she added. Now the book is available in hard- and soft-cover and is available on the Barnes & Noble as well as the Amazon websites, Lipe said. “I was so excited, I couldn’t think,” Lipe added with a big smile. “The process has happened so fast, I can’t keep up. It’s exciting, and scary, too.” Lipe added she is not good at self-promoting either, but that is part of the book publishing process. “Mom alone sold 25 books,” Lipe grinned. “I sold a couple.” She said she will get a quarterly report of the sales from WestBow Press. Lipe said her son, Mat, not a big reader, agreed to read a couple of pages of her book, “but never got up (from the chair) until he was done.” Lipe said she has received some early positive feedback since the book was published. A celebration book signing is scheduled for 3 p.m. to 6 p.m., Sunday, Aug. 25, at the Moravian Church in Chaska. She invited all to attend “and mingle.” She also will be reading a snippet from the book.” More information about the book can be found at http://naturescanvas.org/notime-to-quit/.

More flood waters need to be held back, diverted in the future
Our view: Whether Morningside Avenue is extended, improve drainage regardless
nyone who was impacted by the flash flooding conditions of June 23 knows the misery of a flooded basement, flooded vehicle and having to deal with insurance adjusters and corporate insurance “negotiators.” None of it is pleasant. Glencoe City Council is struggling to come up with a solution to the flooding, especially in the central section of the community, that seems to be a habitual problem, especially when the rains come down so fast in such volume in such a short period of time. No affordable sewer system could be built to address such flash flooding conditions. The best the city can hope for is to keep the storm sewer system from backing up once at capacity. And whatever remedy comes forth will cost money, something in tight supply when it comes to dealing with city infrastructure needs. Who pays for it is the real issue. The city downplayed the same situation in 2002, impacting some of the same neighborhoods. This time the city officials seem to be more interested in solving the drainage issues that blew out a basement wall on 15th Street, flooded basements on 14th Street and Judd Avenue, and caused numerous other flooding issues south of the railroad tracks in various other parts of the city. The key may lie on the north end of Glencoe. That is where the large watershed outside the city limits feeds into the city’s storm sewer system. That water simply has to move through the city sewer lines, streets and whatever is in the way, to make it to Buffalo Creek. If Buffalo Creek is full, the water backs up. The water either needs to be channeled faster through the system, or more of it needs to be held back or redirected before getting into the city
The McLeod County Chronicle, Wednesday, August 21, 2013, page 4
storm sewer lines. The latter seems to be the better option. That may require an upgrade, or expansion, of the city’s north central holding ponds or wetlands, and the channeling of more of that water to the east and west ditch systems, preferably to the east. Currently, the north central holding pond overflow is redirected to the east, behind the high school, to the wetlands lying east of the high school. When full, the water then travels farther east under County Road 15 to other wetlands and eventually into the east ditch system. That area near Oscar Olson Park is under consideration for improvements with the Morningside Avenue extension project that is in serious jeopardy of not happening due to the increasing cost of the city’s share of the work. The county has balked at picking up 70 percent of the project costs, insisting now it be a 50-50 percent split. That is like changing the rules of the game mid-way into the game. Glencoe now cannot afford that change in the funding formula. If the Morningside Avenue project does not move forward, the city should still seriously consider improving the drainage, or holding capacity, in that area to help divert more water from the central part of Glencoe. As an underdeveloped area of the community, with already identifiable drainage issues, the east side of Glencoe may be part of the overall flooding solution. Those drainage issues near Oscar Olson Park should be addressed regardless of whether the Morningside extension occurs. Even though flash flooding only occurs sporadically, anyone in its path knows sporadic can be a real pain. — R.G.
If all else fails, manufacture own stress
One of my kids bought me a Tshirt. It read: “Inside every old person is a young person wondering what the hell happened?” I’m not sure what’s happening, but it can’t be good. As if this job of constant deadlines is not stressful enough, I managed to manufacture additional stress the other day that sent me into a minipanic. I lost my wallet! First off, I generally don’t carry my wallet, unless I’m driving a car. Since I lost one of my cars to the June 23 flash floods, I have been horse-trading with my wife over use of the one family vehicle remaining. She needs it to travel to Gaylord to work; I ... can walk to work. Anyway, I had my wallet the other day because I needed to use the bank’s ATM. I arrived home for lunch and had my usual “cat nap” of a few minutes. When I was heading out the door and back to work, I reached for my wallet and ... it was not there. OK, I must have left it on the dresser. No, because I had it with me at the ATM machine and never went into the bedroom. But I checked anyway, just in case I didn’t remember. Nope. Not there. drawal and napping. As I walked into the house, it dawned on me. It was Wednesday. Every Wednesday I weigh myself as part of my diet routine. By the way, I try to get every advantage. I remove my shoes, loose change and, if need be, my false teeth, if that would help. And, of course, I take out my wallet. It was a “slap-my-forehead” moment. There was my wallet. Sitting right where some darn fool put it. Needless to say, I was gleeful and sheepish at the same time. What seemed to be unthinkable years ago, seems to happen frequently of late. Forgetfulness. This was the topper to my week that started with me smacking myself in the face with a bird feeder shepherd’s hook. Hey, it wasn’t supposed to come out of the ground that quickly, OK! Now I’m walking around with cockeyed glasses, too. With the coke bottles I have for lenses, who needs psychedelic drugs to get your head spinning. Just try seeing through bent glasses! Same effect. Now I understand. I’m that younger person disguised as an old person, and I’m genuinely confused about what’s happening.
Rich Glennie
Went to the Lazy-Boy and checked. Nope. Not there. I checked my jacket pocket. Nope. Then I retraced my steps to the bank’s ATM. Nothing. Checked with the teller. No wallet turned in. Went to the police station to report it. Nope, no wallet turned in there, either. Same at The Chronicle office. Now the panic set in. I cancelled the ATM card and pondered how to get the driver’s license and credit and insurance cards replaced. What a pain! In desperation, I trudged back home and tried to think about what I had done between the ATM with-

What you need to know of Congress
By Lee H. Hamilton Deeply unpopular and flagrantly unproductive, Congress is on its August recess right now. It won’t return until Sept. 9, after a five-week recess, leaving itself just a few days to settle issues like raising the debt ceiling and passing a federal budget. Here are some things you should know about where it stands at this stage of the game: — Few, if any, Congresses can match this one for futility. It managed to help out some communities in the wake of Hurricane Sandy and to reach a deal on presidential nominations, but mostly it can’t get things done — whatever your politics. The repeal of Obamacare, action on climate change, a “grand bargain” on our fiscal problems, education and tax reform, creating jobs, strengthening gun laws ... the list of dropped balls is long, although there is still hope for immigration reform, if just barely. A few weeks ago Speaker John Boehner told Americans not to judge Congress by how many laws it passes, but by how many it repeals. It hasn’t succeeded on either count. — The budget process is a mess. It’s been years since Congress put together a budget according to its regular order, but even by its recent low standards this year has been chaotic. None of the appropriations bills needed for the government to continue running after Sept. 30 has been enacted. “It is common for Congress to leave big budget fights until the last minute,” the Wall Street Journal’s Janet Hook wrote as Congress left town, “but the budgeting process now seems so adrift that even congressional veterans find it hard to see a resolution.” Passing a budget is the most basic function of government, and Congress can’t manage it. — Members of Congress do not like to compromise. The parties are more divided ideologically than they’ve been for many decades, with one side fiercely hostile to government and the other convinced that government can accomplish good things. Neither side can get things done on its own. That’s pretty much the definition of when responsible lawmakers step forward to build a consensus. Yet in this Congress, either they don’t know how or they’re not interested. A glimmer of hope does exist, as more members respond to polls showing Americans believe it’s more important for the parties to compromise than to stick to their positions. They may not be able to come to agreement, but some of them are talking about how willing they are to reach across the aisle. — Even so, it’s worth noticing that one of the congressional parties is extraordinarily difficult to lead at the moment. The Republicans are fractured and squabbling over their future direction. This makes me sympathize with the formidable task the Republican leadership confronts. — Hardly anyone out there thinks Congress is doing a good job — it’s consistently below 20 percent approval ratings — and most people think it’s too partisan. Yet members aren’t very concerned. They’ve become quite skilled at running against Washington, even though they are Washington. And they count on the fact that few voters hold their own member of Congress responsible for its shortcomings, however unpopular Congress as a whole has become. — As lobbyists descend in swarms on Capitol Hill, they hold
Question of the week
Now that the Glencoe’s share of the joint county-city Morningside Avenue extension project has increased substantially after the county decided to pay for only half of the cost instead of 70 percent, should the city continue to push for building the extension? 1) Yes 2) No Results for most recent question: Glencoe City Council has been struggling to determine how to pay for needed street and infrastructure improvements in the future. Do you think a new street utility tax, specifically designated for such work, is a good way to fund such projects? Yes — 32% No — 68%

Glencoe supports Luce Line Trail funding effort
By Rich Glennie Editor Glencoe City Council on Monday night approved a resolution of support for the Luce Line Trail project that is seeking additional state funding to complete the section from the Carver County line west to Cedar Mills. Hutchinson Mayor Steve Cook attended the meeting and asked for Glencoe’s support. Cook said state funding was included in a 2010 state bonding bill that was vetoed by the governor. The Luce Line Trail spans 63 miles from Cosmos on the west to Hennepin County to the east. He said a 28-mile segment of that trail, from Carver County west to Cedar Mills, is involved in the immediate project. He said the hiking/biking trail has a gravel base from Winsted westward through Silver Lake and Hutchinson, and makes it more difficult for biking and handicap accessibility. Cook said meetings with the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) in 2012 determined that if the project was to move forward, local dollars needed to be invested. He said the DNR has committed $1 million over a twoyear span toward the $4.35 million project. The cities of Winsted, Hutchinson and Silver Lake, along with McLeod County, also have committed dollars. About $2.3 million of the $4.35 million is committed, and the state bonding will, hopefully, provide the remaining $2 million, Cook said. Cook said he came to Glencoe City Council for a resolution of support because the Luce Line Trail “is a regional asset” and an economic asset. He said there are not many such state recreational assets in this part of the state. If the additional state funding is not approved, Cook said the DNR, through Legacy funds, is committed for additional money for the project, but that will delay the completion of the trail until funding is available. Cook said preparation work could start this year, and paving of the trail could begin next year. How much of the trail gets completed depends on the amount of funding available. When asked, Cook said there are no restrictions for trail use, such as snowmobile use in the winter. Also, a parallel horse riding trail is part of the project, Cook added. “Who owns the trail?” asked council member John Schrupp. “The DNR,” Cook replied, and added that state agency also is responsible for maintaining the trail. Mayor Randy Wilson, prior to the vote, urged City Council to support a resolution for the project, because Hutchinson has supported Glencoe projects in the past. Asked about the value of the trails to communities in the area, Cook said outside of walkers and hikers, bicyclists are the main users of these state trails. It is estimated that each person spends about $35 per visit along the trail. He said one of the benefits of the Luce Line Trail is that is goes right into the west metro area. Council member Dan Perschau also said the trail is important for public safety. He said he has concerns about people biking on county roads. Cook agreed and said many county roads do not have shoulders. “There is no other trail project that can do what this can do,” Cook said of the Luce Line Trail. “And it’s ready to go.” Glencoe City Council unanimously approved a resolution of support for the second time. It also supported the 2010 resolution.

more power than ever. They rain cash, twist arms, and even draft bills — all the things that powerful congressional leaders used to do. The NRA’s defeat of legislation strengthening background checks for gun purchases, in the face of overwhelming public sentiment after Newtown, was nothing less than an impressive display of political clout and an example of how influential lobbyists and special interests have become. Perhaps this is why a good number of my former colleagues have made a tidy living for themselves by becoming lobbyists. — Finally, all of this contributes to the emerging themes for the 2014 congressional campaign. Candidates will clearly run against the mess in Washington, and a good number of them, though not all, will talk regularly about the need to be bipartisan. The big question for 2015 will be whether the successful ones can translate their talk into legislation to help move the country forward. Lee Hamilton is director of the Center on Congress at Indiana University. He was a member of the U.S. House of Representatives for 34 years.

100 Years Ago
Aug. 22, 1913 O.C. Conrad, Editor Born, to Mr. and Mrs. John Thom of Round Grove, a son on Saturday of last week. A heavy rain storm occurred here last Sunday evening in which a rather peculiar thing happened: hundreds and hundreds of the little English sparrows were blown from their resting places in the trees and were drowned in the water that filled the streets to the depth of several inches. Work was begun Monday in putting in the concrete steps of the city hall. Julius Schlink and son Charley are doing the work. Henry Luebbert has a crew of men at work repairing the brick walls of the city hall this week. The bricks have worked loose and the city council saw it advisable to have the work done at this time. been named operations manager of the new KARP radio station, which will have studios in Glencoe and Hutchinson. Mons most recently spent time as the main stage manager at Dollywood’s Sunset Music Fest. Dollywood is a theme park near Piegon Forge Tenn., which is owned by country singer Dolly Parton. A two-vehicle crash Sunday at about 7:30 a.m. killed a Missouri woman and hospitalized her husband. According to the Minnesota State Patrol, the accident occurred at the intersection of Highways 15 and 212 and involved a 1992 International semi tractor-trailer, driven by Arvid Otkin, 44, of Lake Benton, and a 1985 Oldsmobile driven by Thomas Carroll, 74, of Arnold, Mo. The semi was westbound on Highway 212 and the Caroll vehicle had stopped for the stop sign at the intersection, and then pulled out in front of the truck. Carroll’s wife, Helen, 69, died at the Hutchinson Community Hospital. Carroll was taken to the Hutchinson hospital and then airlifted to Hennepin County Medical Center.
Wheelage tax to fund highway, bridge improvements in 2014
ST. PAUL — County boards in more than half of Minnesota’s 87 counties have voted to implement a $10 per vehicle wheelage tax in 2014 to use toward local road and bridge improvements, taking advantage of a change in state law that expanded the authority to impose this tax from the seven-county metro area to the entire state. In total, 47 counties – which are home to more than 70 percent of Minnesotans – will impose the tax next year. “Our association supported expanding the wheelage tax option to all 87 counties because local governments, both urban and rural, should be making this type of decision based on their individual county’s needs,” said Joe Vene, a Beltrami County commissioner and current president of the Association of Minnesota Counties (AMC). “The wheelage tax is essentially a user fee, which is a sensible option outside of property taxes for raising funds locally to pay for local transportation improvements in our county,” Vene said. The revenue from this wheelage tax must be used for “highway purposes” as outlined in the Minnesota Constitution and must be deposited in a county’s road and bridge fund. Counties have the option of collecting the tax themselves or having the state’s Department of Public Safety’s Driver and Vehicle Services Division collect it and then distribute back to the county. Only metropolitan counties have previously been allowed to levy a wheelage tax in Minnesota. Anoka, Washington, Dakota, Scott and Carver counties all currently collect a wheelage tax. The Anoka County Board voted recently to rescind its existing $5 per vehicle wheelage tax because the tax will mandatorily increase to $10 on Jan. 1, 2014. The state says the fee must be uniform in all counties that enact the wheelage tax because the state’s computer system cannot accommodate variations in the tax from county to county. Counties were only able to decide whether or not to levy the wheelage tax for next year, but the $10 amount may not vary. Beginning in 2018, the cap will be raised to $20 and counties will have the flexibility to set the amount of the tax anywhere up to the cap. The wheelage tax is added to license tab renewal fees. Vehicles are taxed in the county that corresponds to the address on the tab statement. If the vehicle is kept outside the county (i.e. at the owner’s cabin), the owners can indicate a change in the location where the vehicle is kept at the time of tab renewal. Several categories of vehicle are not subject to the wheelage tax, including: motorcycles and mopeds, trailers and semitrailers, all-terrain vehicles, vehicles not subject to annual registration (i.e. collector vehicles), tax exempt and state-owned vehicles. While just more than half of county boards across the state voted to impose the tax, 18 of the state’s 25 most populous counties will be among those to collect a wheelage tax in 2014. In total, roughly 73 percent of Minnesotans live in a county that will impose the tax. According to figures released by the Minnesota Transportation Alliance, Beltrami County could collect $342,960 per year, while Hennepin County could collect closer to $8.5 million per year in wheelage taxes, for example. Counties that didn’t implement a wheelage tax this year still have the option to do so in future years by letting the state know by Aug. 1 of any year for enactment the following year. “The flexibility of each county being able to decide whether or not the wheelage tax is right for their community is a wonderful example of local control and decisionmaking,” Vene added. “Another positive is that counties can revisit the wheelage tax by Aug. 1 of each year and decide to enact, rescind or leave it alone.” Vene stressed that this new road and bridge funding source should not be viewed as a complete solution to the state’s transportation funding crisis. “Minnesota’s counties are on the front lines of delivering a safe and efficient transportation system that meets the needs of citizens and businesses in the 21st Century,” said Vene. “While we appreciate the Legislature giving local governments more authority to address some of our local road and bridge needs, we know that these tools are not enough to fix the major needs in our state’s transportation system,” Vene said. “Minnesota’s counties will continue to press the Legislature and governor to pass a comprehensive transportation funding package that will ensure Minnesota’s roads, bridges, and transit systems are ready to help our state grow and prosper.” The Association of Minnesota Counties (AMC) is a non-partisan, voluntary statewide organization that assists the state’s 87 counties in providing effective county governance to the people of Minnesota by seeing that legislation and policies favorable to counties are enacted as well as by providing educational programs, training, research and communications for county officials and staff.

You are being watched!
e have learned recently that surveillance is a part of our lives today. Cameras are being used in more and more places to record activity so that if there is a need that data can be retrieved. Such was the case with the bombing at last year’s Boston marathon. With all these cameras, we may have a sense of being watched. As people of faith, we acknowledge that we are being watched. The God who knows all and sees all watches us. Yet I think we should consider how we are also watched by others and therefore witnesses to others. For example, we know that children learn a lot just by watching their parents live their lives. Have you considered how you are watched by others? This is not intended to be a creepy thing. Actually, it becomes for us a great opportunity for witness if we are people of faith. If you are a person of faith, you surely can name people in your life who were influential to you coming to faith. Yet some of the people you think may not know the impact they made on you. People who have influenced us don’t always know they have been a role model. You may want to think about who in your life was a great help, thank God for them, and thank them if you are able. Now let’s turn it around, and ask, “Who is watching me?” Certainly you can name some who you know are watching how you live. But you probably can’t name everyone. We never really know who it is who may benefit from our living out our Christian faith. But we should assume that our witness goes beyond our awareness and we can live our lives as if we are indeed being watched. And then, just to tweak this “being watched” theme a bit, remember that God doesn’t just watch us. God watches over us. God cares about us and is lovingly involved in our lives. It is when we watch over others that we also may become a witness of faith.

Geologic atlases topic of Oct. 10 workshop
Carver and McLeod counties will host a one-day informational workshop on Oct. 10 at the Norwood Young America City Hall Council Chambers. This workshop will introduce the Carver and McLeod County Geologic Atlases, Part B, Hydrogeology, which were recently completed in both counties. The Geologic Atlas is a comprehensive collection of maps and other information describing the geology and groundwater systems of the county. The program will include presentations and map exercises in the morning, followed by a field tour in the afternoon. The program is intended for county, city and township staff, local decision makers, citizens, teachers, well drillers, environmental consultants, planners, engineers, septic professionals and anyone interested in land and water in Carver and McLeod counties. Registration for the program is $10 and is due by Sept. 20. Lunch is provided and copies of both the geology and groundwater portions of the atlas will be available to attendees. To register for the program or for more information, contact Madeline Seveland at 952-361-1026 or mseve land@co.carver.mn.us or visit www.co.carver.mn.us/water. The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources completed the groundwater systems part of the Atlas (Part B) in 2013. The maps of the groundwater systems show the aquifers, direction of groundwater flow, age of groundwater, and pollution sensitivity. The Minnesota Geological Survey completed the geology part, or Part A, in 2009. The geology maps of the atlas show the type of bedrock and sediment beneath the land surface of the county. Also included are maps showing depth to bedrock and aggregate resources. For more information about the county atlas program, contact Dale Setterholm, Minnesota Geological Survey, 612-627-4780 or Jan Falteisek, Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, 651-259-5665.

Target, UWMC partner to help library program
The United Way of McLeod County announced that its Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library program was recently awarded a grant from Target Corporation. In recognition of the efforts of the United Way of McLeod County in child development, the grant will be used to support the nearly 1,000 children residing in McLeod County who are enrolled in the organization’s Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library program. “We are so grateful that Target has partnered with us to promote our Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library initiative,” said Paul Thompson, executive director, United Way of McLeod County. “Time and again, Target and its employees have shown a philanthropic mind-set in their giving and volunteering throughout the area.” The grant is part of Target’s ongoing efforts to build strong, safe and healthy communities across the country. These efforts include Target’s long history of giving 5 percent of its profit to communities, which today equals more than $4 million every week. As part of this commitment, Target is on track to give $1 billion for education by the end of 2015 to help kids learn, schools teach and parents and caring adults engage. “At Target, we are committed to serving local communities where we do business,” said Laysha Ward, president, community relations, Target. “That’s why we are proud to partner with the United Way of McLeod County as we work to strengthen communities and enrich the lives of our guests and team members.”
September blood drives set for Hutch, Winsted
ST. PAUL — September is National Preparedness Month, a time for Americans to prepare for emergencies of all types, including ones that require blood transfusions. By giving blood through the American Red Cross, donors help ensure an adequate supply is available. Two area blood drives are set in September. The first is Tuesday, Sept. 10, from noon to 6 p.m. at Peace Lutheran Church, 400 Franklin St. SW in Hutchinson. The other is Thursday, Sept. 12, from noon to 6 p.m., at Holy Trinity High School in Winsted. Currently, eligible donors of all blood types, especially O negative, A negative and B negative, are needed for the Red Cross to readily meet patient needs. Help the Red Cross be prepared by making an appointment to donate blood. Visit redcrossblood.org or call 1800-RED CROSS. A blood donor card or driver ’s license or two other forms of identification are required at check-in. Individuals who are 17 years of age (16 with parental consent in some states), weigh at least 110 pounds and are in generally good health may be eligible to donate blood. High school students and other donors 18 years of age and younger also have to meet certain height and weight requirements.

County Board Continued from page 1
Fountain also outlined what the libraries will do with the increased funding, if granted by the County Board, including: • Brownton: An increase of its teen book and audio book collections. • Glencoe: Purchase of updated medical books and increases in its teen services and audio book collections. • Hutchinson: Updating of computer information books and medical books, as well as beginning a teen program. • Winsted: Increase audio book and large-print book collections. Commissioner Sheldon Nies said the library’s request will be reviewed by the county’s budget committee, and that the county’s preliminary budget will be adopted in September. In other business Tuesday, the County Board: • Agreed to partner with the city of Hutchinson for a transportation study to determine a route for a new “ring road” that will go around northeast Hutchinson. The total cost of the study is $37,000, and the County Board agreed to pay $10,000 of that cost. • Agreed to send two members of the sheriff’s department to a tactical officers conference in September in Kansas City, Mo. Sheriff Scott Rehmann said the officers who attend will, in turn, be able to train local officers in the tactical procedures that they learn at the conference. • Approved annual school health agreements with Glencoe-Silver Lake and New Century Academy in Hutchinson. • Approved buying 120 trees from Kahnke Brothers of Plato at a cost of $15,559, which will be funded through a Legacy grant obtained through the Department of Natural Resources. Parks Director Al Koglin said the county was approved for a $25,000 grant, and the purchase from Kahnke will help provide trees for the fairgrounds. Also on tap will be trees for the county’s two campgrounds at Lake Marion and Piepenburg parks. • Agreed to allow the SnoPros snowmobile group to develop a trail right-of-way along the north property line at Buffalo Creek Park, located just southeast of Glencoe near the airport. Koglin said the agreement is for one year, to allow the parks department to evaluate the impact on the park.

Interior work under way
While the outside brick work is on schedule for the new Early Childhood Family Education/Reading Readiness addition to Lincoln School, the interior remodeling work also has been progressing well. Demolition work was done while the outside work was awaiting proper permits, according to Michelle Sander, district business manager. She said disputes between the state and city officials over the building permits delayed the start of the interior work. The old Lincoln Jr. High locker rooms and rest rooms have been gutted and electrical work is being done. Both are expected to be ready by the start of school on Sept. 3. A school open house is set for Wednesday, Aug. 28. Sander said the contractor, Black and Dew, promised the area would be ready in time. Above is a view of the former kitchen area at Lincoln. That room will be utilized as a new computer room/conference room, Sander said. If a building bond referendum is ever passed, the room would be the elementary media center. Adjacent to this multipurpose room is the science room of Scott Eckhoff, she said. At the left is the view looking down the new hallway leading into the future ECFE addition. Temporary doors will be installed as work continues once school starts. The addition is not expected to be ready for occupancy until after the first of the year. The ECFE programs will be housed elsewhere in the Lincoln building in the meantime.

rected. Schreifels said the June rains caused some catch basins “to be totally blown away.” He said his staff has put a lot of time and effort into finding the problem areas. If the problems are found by televising the lines, “we may be back asking for money to fix these things,” Schreifels told City Council. One possibility may be finding major cracks in sanitary sewer lines that are allowing storm water into the system, he said. “We’ve been dealing with this for 25 years,” Larson said about looking for those cross connections of storm and sanitary sewer lines. “We find some, but never enough. Never the big one (problem),” he added. “It’s like a needle in a haystack,” Schreifels said. The televising and cleaning of the lines will be paid for out of city inflow and infiltration (I&I) funds, Schreifels said.
