The Sibley County Com-
missioners, during a recent
meeting, voted for a three
percent annual adjustment in-
crease to the 2014 wage plan
in most areas, including their
Increases include for com-
missioners, elected officials,
non-bargaining staff and sea-
sonal/temporary hourly wage
rates. County Commissioner
Bill Pinkse said he read that
the state employee contract
was settled at three percent.
There also were adjust-
ments to the Sibley/McLeod
Health Insurance premium
rates and employer’s contri-
bution to the health insurance
After discussing the issue
at a budget workshop, County
Administrator Matt Jaunich
said the insurance committee
set parameter rates for next
year. It was decided to in-
crease the county contribu-
tion to health insurance cov-
erage by $15 for single and
$30 for single plus depend-
ents (family).
The new health insurance
premium rates for 2014 re-
flect a 9.55 increase for the
single silver plan and 9.4 per-
cent for silver family. The
single bronze plan increased
by 5.90 percent and family at
2.30 percent.
Jaunich noted that in the
bronze plan the county is tak-
ing care of half of the in-
crease. He added it has been
an issue of contention that the
county has been way behind.
“When talking to the pri-
vate sector, they are reporting
around a 15 percent increase
in insurance costs, so to keep
it in single digits is obviously
good for us and our employ-
ees,” said Jaunich.
Pinske said depending on
the balance, “Maybe next
year we can do better. They
keep warning us that Obama
care will drive up the premi-
ums. Nobody knows for
Last year the employee step
salary increase was one per-
cent, following three years of
a wage freeze and no in-
crease. From 2005 to 2009
there was a three percent in-
crease for each of the five
It was noted that the union
contract had been settled with
a similar 3 percent increase.

tempt to approve a bread con-
tract in July, only one bid was

A bid from the Earthgrain

that had the contract last year,
was not received.
The district contacted
Earthgrain Sara Lee and
learned that the request for a
bid had not been received due
to an address change by the
Earthgrain Sara Lee had
asked the delivery drivers to
communicate the change of

one bid received by Pan-O-
Gold Baking Company and
send out another round of re-
quests for bids, under the rec-
ommendation of the district’s
lawyer Tony Nerud.
This time around bids were

A cost and time-saving
measure for Sibley County is
no longer on hold after the
board of commissioners ap-
proved a proposal to install a
fiber line between the court-
house, service center building
and highway shop at the
meeting on Tuesday, Aug. 27.
The low bid of $51,038.52
was accepted from Parallel
Technologies with a comple-

Oct. 4. The bigger communi-
cation line is for privacy and
security, but will allow staff

Staff are excited as the
Green Isle Community
School will begin its ninth
year of educating students
next week.
“As we approach our 10-
year anniversary, we will be
reflecting on the years past
and how we can continue to
serve the needs of Green Isle
and its surrounding commu-
nities,” said GICS Director
Mary Menne. “Although our
vision and mission haven’t
changed over the years, we
continue to look for ways to
improve on those elements.”
According to Menne, the
primary focus at GICS is to
• A respectful and positive
learning environment for stu-
dents to grow and thrive so-
cially and academically
• Opportunities for multi-
age interactions both academ-
ically and socially
• High standards for aca-
demic performance by meet-
ing each individual student’s
• Opportunities to give
back both in the school com-
munity as well as the sur-
rounding communities
through service learning proj-
• A chance to connect with
the community in very
unique ways by learning the
culture and heritage of the
• A platform to learn and
practice responsible citizen-
The Green Isle Community
School is a public school
which serves preschool
through sixth grade students.
“We are excited to an-
nounce some changes this
year,” said Menne. “We will
be shifting our multi-age
classrooms back to the origi-
nal structure. This will pro-
vide three main sections-
Kindergarten, 1/2/3, 4/5/6
and room to expand addition-
al sections of each. Another
change is we will be provid-
ing all school supplies for
free and will be taking five
field trips at no cost to par-
ents throughout the year. And
one final change is our be-
fore/after-school childcare
program. ‘Clover Kids’ will
now be open to all preschool
through sixth grade students
in the area.”
Menne added, “As we ea-
gerly await to greet the stu-
dents’ return for the 2013-
2014 school year we would
like to take a moment to
thank the families we serve
for trusting us with their
child’s education and allow-
ing us the opportunity to get
to know their children. Our
small staff is so passionate
about what they do and ab-
solutely love teaching. They
genuinely care about each
child, enjoy nurturing their
curiosity and enjoy instilling
a love of learning. Thank you
for allowing us the opportuni-
ty to do what we love.”

McLeod County Chronicle
A large group of city, coun-
ty and public transit officials
from several counties came
together in Hutchinson Friday
morning to talk about how
different transit systems can
cooperate — and possibly
consolidate — to provide bet-
ter service to riders.
Beverly Herfindahl of Dis-
trict 8 of the Minnesota De-
partment of Transportation
(MnDOT), said the talk of
making public transit systems
more efficient started in 2011
when, because of a large
deficit at the state level, “we
thought transit could take a
30 percent cut in funding.”
The discussion centered
around how public transit
systems could “still put the
same level of service on our
streets if we had to cut,” said
Herfindahl. “Usually (in
cuts), service is the first thing
to go, and we didn’t want that
to happen.”
As it turned out, the 30 per-
cent cut did not materialize,
but “we had started down the
path to improve the efficien-
cies and effectiveness of our
transit system,” Herfindahl
While there is a perception
that the state wants to reduce
the number of transit systems
to 10 to 15 from the current
53 systems, consolidation is
not necessarily the goal,
Herfindahl said.
“We would like to see
fewer contracts,” Herfindahl
said, “because we could give
more detailed oversight of
contracts instead of running
around as much as we’re
doing,” but the overall goal is
to provide better service at,
hopefully, the same or lower
“We don’t specifically see
consolidation for everyone,”
Herfindahl said, but some
smaller systems may see the
benefit of joining with a larg-
er one, especially as employ-
ees retire or move on to other
jobs. And MnDOT will have
some “transitional funding”
to help with re-lettering
buses, new logo designs and
new contracts with personnel
if there are systems that want
to merge.
MnDOT helps fund most

Herfindahl said that coop-
eration between transit sys-
tems could be something as
simple as sharing routes ad-
ministration or compliance
personnel (such as drug and
alcohol compliance officers),
or as complex as an eventual
consolidation of systems.
Jim Swanson, a Sibley
County Commissioner, said
that part of the problem is
that each system has a de-
fined “service area” which, in
the case of county systems,
includes the county and one
mile beyond the county bor-
ders. He described each sys-
tem as an independent “silo”
that does not cross lines with
other systems.
MnDOT provides funding
based on rides within the
service area. Rides that ex-
tend past the borders of the
service area are not subject to
MnDOT funding.
“Yes, we want to get rid of
the silos,” agreed Herfindahl,
“because we realize that is
not how people live. ”
Herfindahl said populations
are not constrained in move-
ment by county or municipal
Rachel Schneiderman of
Heartland Express in Renville
County, said that some transit
systems are already cooperat-
ing with neighboring transit
“We’re already doing some
of that; it’s just that now
MnDOT is saying it’s OK,”
said Schneiderman.
Participants threw out
some ideas on ways to share
• The possibility of having
transit systems in joint pow-
ers agreements in which each
partner takes on specialized
tasks, such as training, dis-
patching, maintenance or pro-
curement, but each “partner”
retains its independent status.
• Shared, dedicated routes
along major transportation
corridors, such as Highways
12, 7, 212 and 19, with each
system “feeding” into the
• Opening borders of the
transit systems to improve ef-
Schneiderman suggested
that the discussion now move
to the transit director level to
come up with some ideas.
“We’re the ones who know
where we’re not doing our
best, and where we need
help,” said Schneiderman.
Herfindahl agreed, but en-
couraged communication
with city, county and other
officials because they are the
decision makers, she said.
Herfindahl also said that
changes are not expected
“This is going to take a
long and concentrated effort,”
said Herfindahl.

Construction projects
are plenty in Arlington
Our view: Construction projects cause
inconveniences, but they also
improve the community
Guest Column
Letter To The Editor
It has been a long time since the community of Arlington has
seen such a series of summer improvement projects like this year.
To some people, the improvement projects are a nuisance and
cause inconveniences. That may be true, but the number of im-
provement projects around the community is also a sign of
The continuation of the Highway 5 Project, a multi-million dol-
lar project, will allow motorists to drive a 14-mile stretch of new
roadway from Gaylord to Green Isle once construction is complet-
ed in early October.
The Safe Routes To School Project, which will soon be complet-
ed, will improve routes that youth and adults already use in the
community. The project is an excellent example of government en-
tities coming together in the form of solid partnerships for the
good of the people, community, school district and county. In addi-
tion, the sidewalk improvements have been funded with nearly
$200,000 in federal monies right here in Arlington. Futhermore,
the city hopes to plant more trees probably next spring than were
removed this summer.
A $75,000 roof replacement project has also been underway at
the Sibley East Public School in Arlington. The roof, once com-
pleted, will be replace the existing roof on the elementary section
of the local school building.
On a much smaller scale, the baseball water tower will be
cleaned in Arlington during the last week of August or the first part
of September.
There will always be some people who will be critical of the nui-
sances and inconveniences caused by these improvement projects.
The end result, however, will be worth the wait. Towns, similar in
size to Arlington, would love to have these types of construction
projects in their communities.

There were four teenagers who
played hooky one morning. Upon
coming to class in the afternoon,
they reported that their lateness was
because their car got a flat tire.
“That’s fine,” the teacher said
much to the students’ relief. “But
there is an oral test this morning
which you boys have to make up, so
please have a seat and take out a
piece of paper.”
After the four boys found a
seat, the teacher asked, “Now for
the first question, which tire was
Student: “I don’t think I deserved
a zero on this test!”
Teacher: “I agree, but that’s the
lowest mark I could give you!”
Teacher: If there are a dozen flies
on a table and you swat one, how
many are left?
Math clown: “Uhhhh, just the
dead one?”
The children were lined up in the
cafeteria of a Catholic elementary
school for lunch. At the head of the
table was a large pile of apples. The
nun made a note, and posted it on
the apple tray: “Take only one. God
is watching.”
Moving further along the lunch
line, at the other end of the table
was a large pile of chocolate chip
cookies. A child had written a
note: “Take all you want. God is
watching the apples.”
A kindergarten teacher was ob-
serving her classroom of children
while they were drawing. She would
occasionally walk around to see each
child’s work. As she got to one little
girl who was working diligently, she
asked what the drawing was. The
girl replied, “I'm drawing God.”
The teacher paused and said, “But
no one knows what God looks like.”
Without missing a beat, or look-
ing up from her drawing, the girl
replied, “They will in a minute.”
Little Johnny's kindergarten class
was on a field trip to their local po-
lice station where they saw pictures,
tacked to a bulletin board, of the 10
most wanted men.
One of the youngsters pointed to a
picture and asked if it really was the
photo of a wanted person.
“Yes,” said the policeman. “The
detectives want him very badly.”
So Little Johnny asked, “Why
didn't you keep him when you
took his picture?”
To The Editor,
This is in response to Sibley East
Superintendent Jim Amsden's edito-
rial regarding Location Equity Aid
(LEA). I appreciate his letter and I
agree that the disparity in per pupil
funding for public schools with en-
rollments between 1,000 and 2,000
students is unacceptable. This was
one of the primary reasons I voted
against the K-12 education omnibus
bill and was a co-author on a bill
(HF248) that aims to eliminate the
funding gap for rural school dis-
Last session I met with area su-
perintendents to discuss the shortfall
in funding for rural school districts.
During the meeting, the area super-
intendents shared that the current
per pupil shortfall in funding in rural
versus metro districts is over $300
million. The Governor and the DFL
legislature did little to correct this
deficiency and in some cases exac-
erbated it as with LEA.
Having served on the Glencoe-
Silver Lake school board for 16
years, the rural funding shortfall was
a major source of frustration. I firm-
ly believe that each student in our
state should be funded equally
whether they live in rural or metro,
with exceptions for special needs
There were other reasons why I
voted against the DFL education
omnibus bill, including spending ad-
ditional millions to expand the Min-
nesota Department of Education’s
(MDE) control and micro manage-
ment of our local public schools.
This approach has never raised aca-
demic achievement for students.
A perfect example was the failed
MDE project, the Profile of Learn-
ing, which was a billion dollar edu-
cational boondoggle that damaged
academic achievement for students.
It was such a failure that the legisla-
ture repealed it after wasting over a
billion in tax dollars.
Instead of growing and empower-
ing worthless government bureau-
cracy, your tax dollars should be
committed to the classrooms where
actual academic instruction takes
In addition, the growth of the
MDE coupled with costly unfunded
mandates, takes away local control
and puts pressure on local school
boards to run referendums, which in
turn, increases local property taxes.
The public education structure
and funding needs major reform that
empowers local school districts to
control the education of their chil-
dren and equalizes per pupil fund-
The DFL and Governor' s ap-
proach, with few exceptions, is to
pile billions of tax dollars onto the
same system and shift more authori-
ty to worthless government bureau-
cracies and then call that reform.
The good news is there is plenty
of money in the public educational
system if we dramatically shrink the
educational bureaucracy and target
funding into the classroom.
There are numerous reforms that
would create greater efficiency and
raise academic standards.
For example, I authored a special
ed reform bill HF1577 that would
empower parents with more choices
for their special ed students and re-
duce litigation cost for school dis-
tricts. It would also reduce paper
work and other costs for local
school districts.
This bill attempts real reform, yet
not one DFL legislator has signed on
as a co-author and the DFL con-
trolled legislature would not give the
bill even one hearing in committee. I
was told the bill could be heard this
upcoming session. Time will tell.
Regardless of your political affili-
ation, please join me in promoting
real education reforms that empower
local school districts, teachers and
parents to control the academic
achievement of their children and
directs funding into the classroom
instead of increasing the authority
and cost of worthless government
bureaucracies. This approach can
actually reduce local property taxes,
raise academic achievement and
greatly increase community support
for local school districts.

State Representative
Disparity in education funding is unacceptable
By Lee H. Hamilton
If you want to know why passing
congressional legislation has gotten
so difficult, here are two numbers to
remember: 5 and 532. They illus-
trate a great deal about Congress
When I served in the House
decades ago and the “farm bill”
came up, stitching a successful piece
of legislation together depended on
getting five organizations to find
common ground. They included
groups like the national Farm Bu-
reau and the Farmers Union, and our
task was clear: get them to agree on
what the bill ought to look like, and
we had a measure that could pass.
This year, Congress is struggling
to get a farm bill through. After the
House of Representatives sent the
first version down to defeat, no
fewer than 532 organizations signed
a letter to Speaker John Boehner
asking him to bring a bill back to the
floor as soon as possible. The array
of groups was striking. The Farm
Bureau signed on, but so did avoca-
do growers and peach canners, bee-
keepers and archers, conservation-
ists of all sorts, and huge businesses
like Agri-Mark.
In essence, the big umbrella
groups have broken into different
constituent interests, with peanut
growers and sheep ranchers and spe-
cialty-crop growers all pursuing
their particular goals. Sometimes it
feels like there’s a constituency for
every commodity — and on such
broader issues as biofuels, rural de-
velopment and international trade.
What used to require bringing to-
gether a handful of constituencies
now demands horse-trading among
Not every major piece of legisla-
tion before Congress is so compli-
cated, but the farm bill is a perfect
example of how tough it has become
to get a major bill through, with so
many competing interests and so
much money at stake. Everything on
Capitol Hill’s plate this year — from
immigration reform to gun control
to the upcoming debt ceiling fight
— requires legislative language that
a wide array of interest groups can
agree to. This would be daunting but
attainable if Congress operated the
way it once did. But it doesn’t.
For what the farm bill’s travails
also illustrate is that Congress is
now a legislatively challenged insti-
tution. The leaders on the Hill have
fewer tools of persuasion than they
once did. They abolished “ear-
marks,” so they can no longer prom-
ise a bridge or a road to secure a
member’s vote, and they carry less
respect and political clout. The po-
litical parties that once helped en-
force discipline can no longer do so,
since politicians these days often
identify themselves with outside
groups like the Tea Party rather than
with their political party. With the
rise of Super PACs, neither congres-
sional leaders nor political parties
have as much influence over
fundraising — and hence the “loyal-
ty” it once imposed — as they used
To make matters worse, many
members — especially in the Re-
publican Party, though it’s not limit-
ed to the GOP’s side of the aisle —
do not like to compromise. As I sug-

St. Paul’s Lutheran School
in Arlington, after a busy
summer, is looking foward to
the 2013-2014 school year,
according to Principal Eric
The school underwent
some building updates over
the past three months.
With energy grants, rebates
and gifts from donors, the
school has upgraded its light-
“It is a big improvement to
have brighter, more efficient
lights throughout the entire
building,” said Kaesermann.
“The most noticeable is in the
gymnasium where new fix-
tures were installed. The
board of education saw the
available funds, the cost-sav-
ing on electric usage and de-
sire to give our children a
proper learning atmosphere. It
made sense to get this project
St. Paul’s has also gotten
through a full year of using
iPads in its classrooms.
“It is amazing how many
different ways the teachers in-
corporate them in their class-
room activities,” Kaesermann
said. Prekindergarten through
eighth grade have all been
using them in class.
Kaesermann continued,
“Every year we develop and
purchase curriculum that
helps our students achieve at
high levels. This year we fin-
ished updating our math se-
ries. We continue to be proud
that our students achieve well
above national levels on their
standardized tests. Our stu-
dents achieve just above the
70 percent of the national av-
erage for the sixth straight
year. We are proud to see our
St. Paul’s alumni that attend-
ed Sibley East Senior High
School or Minnesota Valley
Lutheran High School on the
honor lists.”
The classrooms at St.
Paul’s Lutheran School are
multigrade and subjects are
taught from a Christian per-
spective, according to Kaeser-
“Our experienced staff
manages these multiage class-
rooms to optimize student
achievement,” he said.
The staff consists of Don
Koch who teaches grades 6-8,
Principal Eric Kaesermann
who teaches grades 3-5, Les-
ley Kaesermann who teaches
grades 1-2, and Judy Petzel
who teaches preschool in the
afternoons and kindergarten
in the morning.
“This year we will continue
to have a home-school pro-
gram on Tuesdays and Thurs-
days, ” said Kaesermann.
“These students attend our af-
ternoon class periods of art,
music, physical education,
etc. It is an interesting pro-
gram and it was successfully
received last school year.”
Kaesermann said major
blessings that were received
last year were grants and
funding from Safe Routes to
School and Sibley County
Public Health.
“Funds from these projects
were used to encourage walk-
ing or biking to school,” said
Kaesermann. “The rest was
used to start a school garden
and orchard. We planted this
spring and our students are in-
volved with the harvest of the
food. We are looking forward
to having those vegetables on
our menu this school year.”
School at St. Paul’s Luther-
an School is set to begin on
Tuesday, Sept. 3. An opening
service at St. Paul’s Lutheran
Church will be held at 8:15

The corn pack has been in
full swing at the Dean Foods
Vegetable Company in Arling-
ton this month. The company,
according to General Manager
Bruce Pinske, will exceed its
goal of 2,235,000 cases of corn
this year. The company, he
added, was also able to reach
450,000 cases of peas this sum-
The Sibley East FFA Field
Day was held at the new Round-
Up Ready Soybean Plot on
Monday afternoon and evening.
The 5.5 acre plot, which is lo-
cated along County Road 9 just
north of Arlington, is comprised
of 12 different varieties from
eight companies.
An in-dash cassette player,
two speakers, amplifier, 40-plus
cassette tapes and a cassette
case were reported taken from a
vehicle Monday, according to
the Arlington Police Depart-
ment. The vehicle was parked
along the 300 block of West
Baker Street when the incident
occurred. The items were valued
at approximately $625.
gested at the beginning, com-
promise is at the heart of the
farm bill. For the last 50
years, it’s been put together
by joining crop support and
nutrition support — food
stamps — in order to win the
votes of both rural and urban
lawmakers. And within the
rural sections of the bill,
wheeling and dealing on the
specifics has been the only
way to generate legislation
that farm-state legislators
could all agree upon. Now
that formula is broken, though
I do believe an accommoda-
tion will be worked out.
But the problems go beyond
that, and it’s not bad that the
usual inertia on the farm bill
has found difficult going. The
country needs to confront
basic questions about the $16
billion annual subsidy and
heavy trade protection accord-
ed to agriculture — when
fewer than 1 percent of Amer-
icans are farmers and farming
has become a hugely corpo-
rate industry. Likewise, with
one in six Americans now re-
ceiving food stamps, we need
a real debate about the food
stamp program, which makes
up 80 percent of the cost of
the bill.
In other words, we’re not
getting what we actually need,
which is a real policy debate
on the role of the government
in agriculture. If Congress
were working properly, this
might have been possible. In-
creasingly, I fear it’s beyond
Capitol Hill’s reach.

During a closed session that
followed the regular city coun-
cil meeting on Monday, Aug.
19, the Belle Plaine City Coun-
cil voted to part ways with City
Administrator David Murphy
effective immediately, accord-
ing to an article in the Belle
Plaine Herald.
Mayor Mike Pingalore said
he could not go into any specif-
ic details about the matter until
after both parties signed the
“separation agreement.” Once
the agreement is signed, Pinga-
lore said the details within it
would be released. During a
closed session in June, the city
council came to a consensus
(no vote was taken) not to
renew Murphy’s current con-
tract when it expires on Dec.

The Gibbon City Council
was notified of its third big
surprise on the new water
treatment plant at a special
meeting on Monday, Aug. 1,
according to an article in the
Winthrop News.
First, the $500,000 grant was
denied and then the economy
improved and the construction
costs increased. On Monday
evening, the Council was in-
formed that with the improved
economy the interest rate had
increased. Engineer Chuck
Vermeersch stated that before
the regular monthly meeting on
Monday Aug.12, it looked like
the loan with Public Facilities
Authority (PFA) would come
in below one percent, but one
percent was the minimum rate.
The Council approved the con-
tractor’s 2.4 million project
and set new water rates to pay
off the project.
Trying to get the final ap-
proval on the loan, Vermeersch
and engineer Kathy Cavett
found out the loan interest rate
would be between 1.28 and 1.3

Sibley East tennis team nets 4 wins
By Kurt Menk
The hitting of Brian Scher-
schligt and the pitching of
Cody Hallahan, for the sec-
ond consecutive contest,
sparked the Green Isle Irish
baseball team to a 9-0 win
over Morris during the sec-
ond round of the Minnesota
State Class C Amateur Base-
ball Tournament at Maple
Lake on Saturday morning,
Aug. 24.
Scherschligt belted two
home runs into the wind and
drove in four runs while
Cody Hallahan retired 21
consecutive batters during
one stretch.
The Irish scored three runs
and grabbed a 3-0 lead in the
top of the third inning. Green
Isle plated the runs on a two-
run single by Pat Moriarty
and a solo homer by Scher-
Green Isle plated five runs
and increased its advantage to
8-0 in the top of the sixth
frame. The big hit during the
rally was a three-run bomb
by Scherschligt.
The Irish tallied its final
run in the top of the eighth
inning en route to the 9-0 vic-
Cody Hallahan, who gave
up a leadoff single in the bot-
tom of the first inning, did
not allow another hit until the
bottom of the eighth frame.
The right hander, who surren-
dered three hits over eight in-
nings, posted the mound win.
He also fanned eight.
Aaron Cook, a draftee from
Young America, worked a
hitless ninth inning in relief.
The Irish pounded out 14
hits in the win. In addition to
the two Scherschligt
roundtrippers, Nate Pilacinski
and Moriarty contributed two
singles each. Zach Herd,
Lucas Herd, Jackson Halla-
han, Keller Knoll, Jeremy
Ische, Cody Hallahan, Con-
nor Herd and Zac Weber
added one single apiece.
The Irish, 26-9 overall, are
just four wins away from a
state championship. Green
Isle will now face Howard
Lake at Maple Lake at 1:30
p.m. Saturday, Aug. 31.
The remaining games to
the state championship would
be at Delano at 11 a.m. Sun-
day, Sept. 1; at Maple Lake at
5 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 1; and at
Maple Lake at noon Monday,
Sept. 2.

Volleyball team wins opener
SE football team hopes to continue its winning ways
By Kurt Menk
The Sibley East varsity
boys football team hopes to
continue its winnings ways
from last year.
The Wolverines, just one
year ago, concluded the sea-
son with a 6-1 mark and a
share of the Minnesota River
Conference title, a trip to the
Minnesota State Class 2A
Football Tournament and a 9-
2 record overall.
Fifteen seniors have gradu-
ated from last year’s team, but
24 letterwinners return for
this year’s squad.
The returning letterwinners
include seniors Aaron Kapke,
Francisco Guzman, Alex Pe-
draza, Erik Danielson, Beau
Swenson, Austin Sadler,
Brody Rodning, Sam Bullert,
Nick Haupt, Ben White,
Arvid Latchman, Colton
Bates, Cordell Bates, Dono-
van Swanson and Darian
Schulte; juniors Cole Bruhn,
Zach Clarke, Ben Frietag,
Brenden Bessel, Alex Bessel,
Jon DuFrane and Lukas
Bullert; and sophomores Paul
Glisczinski and Dylan Pauly.
The remaining seniors in-
clude Hunter Retzlaff,
Quentin Gex, Mitch Went-
zlaff, Kody Klopflisch and
Ruben Moreno.
The remaining juniors are
Erik Moreno, Isaac Elseth and
Kevin Johnson.
The remaining sophomores
consist of Roberto Cardenas,
Juan Rodriguez, Devin Tupa,
German Navarro, Travis
Schmidt, Quin Riffenburg,
Logan Jorganson, Christian
Figueroa, Sam Abraham and
Luis Zambrano.
The freshmen include Tan-
ner Pasvogel, Zach Utendor-
fer, Brody Bates and Tanner

Head coach Chuck Hart-
man is assisted by Carl
Bratsch, Mike Haller and Rod
“Our attitude and body lan-
guage is good and you can
tell which guys participated in
the strength and conditioning
program and which ones did-
n’t,” said Hartman. “I think
our offensive line is young
but will gel. It’s of course led
by Cordell Bates who was all
everything last year. Erik
Danielson looks stronger and
more explosive. On defense,
Ben White is again at Mike
linebacker to anchor the de-
fense behind an improved de-
fensive line.
The Wolverines competed
in a scrimmage at Mankato
East on Saturday, Aug. 24, ac-
cording to Hartman.
Sibley East will open its sea-
son at G-F-W in non-confer-
ence action at Winthrop at 7
p.m. Aug. 30.
“G-F-W looked good at
their scrimmage and they are
better than last year’s team,”
Hartman said. “They have
good speed and size.”
Hartman, however, told his
team that the Wolverines can-
not expect to just show up and
win. The team, he said, must
be focused on their first oppo-
nent and play hard.
The Wolverines will open
their MRC season at Jordan at
7 p.m. Friday, Sept. 6.
Sibley East will host its
home opener against visiting
Belle Plaine in conference
play at 7 p.m. Friday, Sept.

Green Isle Memorial Pull
Over 2,000 people attended the second annual Green
Isle Memorial Pull on Friday night, Aug. 23. There
were nearly 60 entries in the state event sanctioned
by the National Tractor Pullers Association and Unit-
ed Pullers of Minnesota. The event was organized by
Kipp Trebesch, Sr. and Kipp Trebesch, Jr.
The weekly Crop Progress
& Condition Report is provid-
ed by the U.S. Department of
Agriculture and National

Warmer than normal tem-
peratures and continued sunny
days led to 6.6 days suitable
for field work. Statewide av-
erage temperatures were
6.7  degrees above normal at
73.5 degrees. An average of
0.31 inch of rain fell
statewide, 0.50 inch below
normal. The Northwest dis-
trict was the only region to re-
ceive above normal precipita-
tion at 0.90 inch. Topsoil and
subsoil moisture levels con-
tinued to decline and were
rated 66 and 56 percent very
short or very short, respec-
Eighty-five percent of the
corn crop was at or beyond
the milk stage, compared to
the five-year average of 94
percent. Corn at or beyond
the dough stage advanced to
44 percent, compared with
96  percent last year and the
average of 66 percent. Corn
is 5  percent dented, two
weeks behind normal. Corn
conditions were rated 3 per-
cent very poor, 9 percent poor,
32 percent fair, 46  percent
good and 10 percent excel-
Eight-five percent of soy-
beans were setting pods, lag-
ging behind last year’s 100
percent and the normal 95
percent. Soybean conditions
declined slightly to 54 percent
good or excellent.
Nearly all spring wheat has
ripened. Spring wheat harvest
reached 65 percent complete,
nearly catching up to the nor-
mal harvesting pace of 66 per-
cent. Spring wheat conditions
rated 2 percent very poor, 5
percent poor, 27 percent fair,
56 percent good and 10 per-
cent excellent.
The oat harvest advanced
18 percentage points to 80
percent complete, 5 points be-
hind normal. Dry conditions
resulted in declining crop con-
ditions, with the exception of
a marginal improvement in
sunflower condition.
Less than one-third of Min-
nesota’s pastures were rated
good to excellent. Harvest of
third cutting alfalfa hay ad-
vanced 29  points to 45 per-
cent complete.

Wilson added that more
programs for PHHS are being
accessed at the state. There
are times when emails send
and or open slowly and com-
munication between the two
buildings acts erratically.
She suggested that the cost
will be cheaper now rather
than later.
County Administrator Matt
Jaunich said when the budget
committee met last April the
need for three new servers
was discussed, estimated to
cost a total of between
$30,000 to 33,000. At that
time, the estimate to put in the
internet fiber line between the
buildings was $30,000.
“By putting the line in we
would not have to replace the
servers,” said Jaunich. “Bids
came in about $20,000 higher,
but this is the right direction
to go in regard to the future
needs and we will save the
cost of maintaining the

Stock said webinars and
ITV meetings are becoming
the norm way to save dollars.
Staff is doing less face to face
training and is relying more
on technology. Right now the
quality of the webinars is
often static, difficult to hear
and understand.
Wilson said the fiber line
will allow everyone to use
their programs and the system
won’t bog down.

Late season soybean aphid management strategies
and the effects of moisture stress on soybeans
Large aphid populations
(thousands per plant) in early
R6 may require treatment,
particularly if plants are expe-
riencing other stresses (for ex-
ample, drought or nutrient de-
What is the yield impact of
August weather conditions as
we approach the end of the
soybean growing season?
The final soybean reproduc-
tive stage is known as its
seed-filling phase. It starts at
R5 (begin seed) and nominal-
ly ends at R6 (full seed),
when each soybean seed has
enlarged to fill the width of its
pod cavity. However, from the
end of R6 to stage R7 (physi-
ological maturity) soybean
seeds can still enlarge a bit
more lengthwise to fill the
space between seeds in adja-
cent pod cavities. If there is
no stress prior to R7, the en-
larging seed can expand
(bulge out) the pod cavity. At
stage R7, the mother plant
stops depositing carbon and
nitrogen metabolites into its
seeds. R7 in soybean is equiv-
alent to the “black layer”
stage in corn. At this time of
the season (mid to late-Au-
gust), the primary factor af-
fecting final seed size is in-
variably a lack of sufficient
soil water to supply the tran-
spiratory needs of the crop for
the rest of the season on up to
R7. Plant leaves open their
stomates during the day to
capture CO2 for photosynthe-
sis, but water is transpired
from the leaf through those
open stomates.
Clearly, the last yield com-
ponent to be fixed by the soy-
bean crop in the season —
seed size — will be substan-
tively diminished if soil water
is not sufficient for crop tran-
spiration each day during Au-
gust and early September.
This point should not be lost
on those who irrigate their
soybean fields — make sure
that your last seasonal soy-
bean irrigation is scheduled
with the proper timing and
water amount to ensure no
loss in seed size by late-sea-
son water stress.
Minnesota crops continued
to make progress with the
warm to hot conditions how-
ever topsoil and subsoil
moisture levels continued to
decline and were rated 66
and 56 percent very short or
short, respectively according
to the recent USDA National
Agricultural Statistical Serv-
ice, Minnesota Field Office
crop weather report for this
last week.
Eighty-five percent of the
corn crop was at or beyond
the milk stage, compared to
the five-year average of 94
percent. Corn at or beyond
the dough stage advanced to
44 percent, compared with
96 percent last year and the
average of 66 percent. Corn
is 5 percent dented, two
weeks behind normal. Eight-
five percent of soybeans
were setting pods, lagging
behind last year’s 100 per-

Soybean Aphid manage-
ment strategies for late sea-

Bob Koch, University of Min-

Maintain soybean aphid
scouting through R6.5 (pods
and leaves beginning to yel-
low), regardless of calendar
date. Through R5 (seeds de-
veloping and filling pod cavi-
ty), use the university created
and validated threshold of
250 aphids per plant with
80% of plants infested and
populations increasing. Yield
loss is possible into early R6
(pod cavity filled by seeds),
but a valid economic thresh-
old has not been developed.
However, this value is likely
much higher in R6 than in
earlier growth stages.
Complicating matters is
the fact that the duration of
soybean aphid populations
and their impacts on yield are
less predictable in R6. Regu-
lar scouting and use of the
250-aphid-per-plant thresh-
old through R5 should pre-
vent development of large
aphid populations on R6 soy-
beans, when management de-
cisions are more difficult to
Deer hunters who use a
firearm or muzzleloader in a
lottery area and want to har-
vest an antlerless deer must
apply for an either-sex permit
by the Thursday, Sept. 5,
deadline established by the
Minnesota Department of
Natural Resources (DNR).
Deadlines for firearm and
muzzleloader special hunts
also are Sept. 5.
Lottery either-sex permits
Hunters can apply for lot-
tery deer areas using both
their firearm and muzzle-
loader licenses. Although a
hunter can be selected for
both licenses, successful ap-
plicants still can only take
one deer.
2013 lottery deer areas are

118, 119, 122, 169, 171, 172,

In lottery deer areas,
firearms and muzzleloader
hunters may only harvest a
buck unless they apply for
and receive an either-sex per-
mit, which allows them to
harvest an antlerless deer.
Firearm and muzzleloader
special hunts
For special hunts, a person
may draw both a firearm and
muzzleloader permit, in
which case they must adhere
to the bag limits established
by each special hunt. Infor-
mation on 2013 special hunts
is available online.
All lottery winners will re-
ceive permits via U.S. mail.
Hunters may apply for an ei-
ther-sex permit through any
DNR license agent, online or

Mission Trip
Seven youth from the Area Faith Com-
munity of Ss. Michael, Mary & Brendan
(Arlington & Green Isle) and St.
Bernard's in Cologne were among over
250 young people that made a positive
difference in the Detroit Lakes, MN area
from July 21-25. These youth were part
of the Catholic Heart Workcamp
(CHWC) held there. The mission of the
national CHWC is in equal parts to pro-
vide service to others while inspiring
campers to live as Disciples of Christ
through their service to those in need.
This year's theme for the youth was
“Be Seen.” The call to serve brought
kids in grades 9-12 from the upper mid-
west area to include Iowa, Kansas, Wis-
consin and Illinois. Detroit Lakes was
one of 50 sites around the country that
held a CHWC program this year. Front
