SE teacher suspended with pay pending investigations
By Karin Ramige Cornwell Manager The Sibley East School Board met with attorney Tony Nerud in a closed session, during the regular board meeting on Monday night, August 5. The closed meeting was about the ongoing investigation and criminal charge against elementary physical education teacher and head varsity girls basketball coach Doug Flieth. Flieth was charged with one count of interference with privacy on Tuesday, July 9 for recording underneath a hair stylist’s dress with his cell phone, according to the Sibley County Attorney’s Office. Nerud, in a previous closed meeting, expressed concern about similar conduct on school owned property. With the board’s approval, Nerud contacted Carney Forensics, Minneapolis, to forensically examine the iPad3, laptop and a digital camera with recording capabilities that Flieth had in his possession. The items are being reviewed to identify if any inappropriate material was on or has been deleted from the devices. At the time of the meeting on Monday, the laptop and camera had been reviewed, but the iPad3 had not. No inappropriate material was found on or to have been deleted from the two devices examined. The results of the iPad3 will be presented to the board at the next meeting. Nerud has also researched possible disciplinary action from the district in regards to the matter. Upon the research, Nerud made two recommendations in regards to Flieth. The first, with board approval, is to send a letter to Flieth informing him that his contracts as head girls basketball coach and co-coach for girls golf will not be renewed. According to Nerud, 14 days notice must be given for the employee to consider and request a hearing. The board approved a motion to give notice to Flieth that the coaching provisions of his contract would not be renewed. The second recommendation was to suspend Flieth from his teaching contract duties, with pay, pending the completion of the forensics investigation, the county’s criminal investigation and prosecution of the criminal charges, and completion of the Minnesota Department of Education’s (MDE) investigation concerning licensure. “I believe that is all we’re able to do under the statute,” said Nerud. “I do not believe there is the basis at this moment to move to terminate, nor to suspend without pay. But at this juncture I think that the board can clearly, definitely and properly place him on notice that at this point he will not be returning to the school in the present year for teaching under the suspension pending the completion of those three facets of the investigation under way.” Nerud added, “This is simply saying to complete ends to the students, staff and families of Sibley East, that while we are bound by state statute, school policy and the employment contract we are doing all that is permitted by law to follow through on this investigation to determine whether or not there has been a further impropriety, keeping in mind, first and foremost, fairness to the individual and protection of Sibley East staff and students.” The board approved a resolution authorizing the district to suspend Doug Flieth with pay pending the investigations of the school district, Sibley County and MDE. Flieth is scheduled to appear in district court on the criminal charge on Thursday, August, 8.

Arlington City Council accepts bid for Safe Routes To School project
By Kurt Menk Editor The Arlington City Council, during its regular meeting on Monday night, Aug. 5, voted 4-0 and approved a motion to accept the low bid of $173,608 from Ti-Zack Concrete, Inc., Le Center, for the Safe Routes To School project. City Council members Ben Jaszewski, Jennifer Nuesse, Curt Reetz and Galen Wills all voted in favor of the motion. The vote was taken minutes after City Council member Jason Ruehling left the meeting for another commitment. The cost includes the base bid along with Alternate A and Alternate B. 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 Northwest 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 will include the repair and replacement of sidewalks along the north side of the 100 block of West Chandler Street. Alternate B will include new sidewalks along the north side of the 100 block of East Chandler Street. Alternate C, which was not included in the bid, would have included a new crosswalk along Second Avenue Northeast and the construction of a new sidewalk on the east side of the Sibley East Athletic Complex. Construction is expected to start on Monday, Aug. 12. Construction will last 45 days. The remaining money from the nearly $200,000 federal grant will go toward engineering fees. The out-of-pocket expense to the City of Arlington will be as much as $27,000. in Greater Minnesota and the rest are in the Twin Cities metropolitan area. All of the grants will be used to improve or build trails and sidewalks 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 improvements in routes to school so students will be more inclined to walk to school. And walking to school is another way to increase exercise for healthier kids.” Overall, there were 82 applications representing $83 million in projects.
Grant
The City of Arlington, with Sibley County as a sponsor and the Sibley East Public Schools and St. Paul’s Lutheran School as cooperative partners, received a federal $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 program and announced by the Minnesota Department of Transportation (Mn/DOT). Of the 16 projects, 12 are

Traffic signal in Gaylord to be deactivated on Aug. 13
Motorists on Highways 5 and 19 (Main Avenue) in Gaylord will no longer need to stop at the east junction of Highway 22 (Fourth Street) after Tuesday, Aug. 13. However, cross traffic or motorists on Fourth Street will need to comply with a stop sign before entering the intersection, when it is clear, according to a news release from the Minnesota Department of Transportation (Mn/DOT). The evaluation and potential removal of the signal is to improve traffic flow and safety. Current and forecasted traffic at the intersection is not high enough to warrant the signal at the east junction of the highways that has been in place for at least 45 years, according to MnDOT records. Replacing the signal with through-stop control (a twoway stop) is expected to reduce the frequency and severity of crashes based on crash records from other urban through-stop controlled intersections on the state highway system with similar traffic volumes. It is believed that through-stop controlled intersections have fewer crashes because motorists are required to be attentive and actively look for a safe gap in traffic rather than relying on a traffic signal indication that does not tell the motorist if it is safe to enter the intersection. Replacing the signal with through-stop control will also reduce delays for both motorists and pedestrians at the intersection. As part of the proposed removal of the signal, MnDOT will be installing pedestrianactivated flashing warning signs to facilitate pedestrian crossings of Main Avenue at Fourth Street. Crews from Mn/DOT will cover the signal lights on August 13 and add the following signs: • Traffic Control Change Ahead – on all intersection approaches (Main Avenue and 4th Street) • Stop ahead warning signs – on both Fourth Street approaches • Stop Signs with flashing LED lights – on both 4th Street approaches • Cross traffic does not stop – on both Fourth Street approaches, below the stop signs In conjunction with the signal deactivation, MnDOT will be evaluating the traffic operations of the revised intersection over the next few months. If during the evaluation no adverse traffic impacts are observed by MnDOT, the signal will remain deactivated until it can be removed as part of the 2014 highway reconstruction project in Gaylord. In addition to the expected crash and delay reduction benefits, the removal of the signal would also result in cost savings to both the City of Gaylord and MnDOT.

Sibley East to update its strategic plan
Our View: The move will set direction and priorities
The old adage is that “If you fail to plan, you’re planning to fail.” That is why it is uplifting to see that the Sibley East School Board plans to update its strategic plan later this fall. It is also the perfect time to plan for the future with the arrival of a new superintendent. The opportunity will allow the School Board to set direction and priorities for the Sibley East Public Schools over a number of years. It will also give the School Board a chance to get all members on the same page and simplify the decisionmaking process. In addition, an updated strategic plan will allow the School Board to communicate a consistent message about the future to the stakeholders throughout the school district. It will be critical for the School Board to look at the big picture and not just focus on the condition of the current facilities in Arlington and Gaylord. The condition of the facilities is highly important, but many other areas are also key to create a positive and healthy learning environment for all students. Feedback from the public is also very important as the School Board develops a long-term strategic plan. This allows the general public an opportunity to have a voice and become involved in the process. People should take the time to relay their thoughts and ideas on the future of the Sibley East Public Schools to the School Board or new superintendent prior to the start of the process this fall. -K.M.
The Superintendent’s Note Pad
Sibley East to update its Strategic Plan
By Jim Amsden Superintendent As many families are beginning to prepare for the return to school and squeezing in all the last minute summer activities, the Sibley East School Board is preparing to embark on updating the district’s Strategic Plan. At the July board meeting, the board approved an agreement with the South Central Service Cooperative to participate in TeamWorks Strategic Planning Training Sessions. The four training sessions being held in October and November of 2013 will allow the district to develop a multi-year strategic plan that demonstrates accountability to citizens, allows annual adjustments as the needs of the district change, and will clarify the roles of the school board, administration, staff, parents, students and citizens in creating a positive learning environment. Strong organizations have a vision for the future and a mission that acts as a road map toward achieving success. The vision can best be defined as that mental picture of what Sibley East Schools should look like and achieve over the course of the longterm. Think in terms of 5 or more years. The mission is slightly different. This can be seen as the “what we do, who we do it for, and how we do it.” The time frame is more immediate. As community members it is important to begin thinking about what this vision and mission would look like for you as it relates to Sibley East Schools. I would encourage you to contact board members or me and convey your vision and mission for our district. The feedback is important in developing the overall strategic plan. Ultimately, district wide decisions, resource allocation, and organizational changes are all guided by the strategic plan that will be developed in October and November and your voice is important in this process. Please feel free to contact me by stopping by the district office in Arlington, phone(507-964-8224), or email jamsden@sibleyeast.k12.mn.us. You can also follow me on Twitter @SEHS_Amsden.

The farmer was fascinated by the airplanes and asked a pilot how much a ride would cost. “$10 for three minutes,” replied the pilot. “That’s too much," said the farmer. The pilot thought for a second and then said, “I’ll make you a deal. If you and your wife ride for three minutes without uttering a sound, the ride will be free. But if you make a sound, you’ll have to pay $10.” The farmer and his wife agreed and went for a wild ride. After they landed, the pilot said to the farmer, “I want to congratulate you for not making a sound. You are a brave man.” “Maybe so,” said the farmer, “But I gotta tell ya, I almost screamed when my wife fell out.” ***** Three guys were fishing in a lake one day, when an angel appeared in the boat.

Could you help me?” “Of course,” the angel said, and when he touched the man’s back, the man felt relief for the first time in years. The second guy wore very thick glasses and had a hard time reading and driving. He asked if the angel could do anything about his poor eyesight. The angel smiled, removed the man’s glasses and tossed them into the lake. When they hit the water, the man’s eyes cleared and he could see everything distinctly. When the angel turned to the third guy, the guy put his hands out defensively. “Don't touch me!” he cried, “I'm on a disability pension.” ***** A rookie police officer was out for his first ride in a cruiser with an experienced partner. A call came in telling them to disperse some people who were loitering. The officers drove to the street and observed a small crowd standing on a corner. The rookie rolled down his window and said, “Let's get off the corner people.” A few glances, but no one moved, so he barked again, “Let’s get off that corner... NOW!” Intimidated, the group of people began to leave, casting puzzled stares in his direction. Proud of his first official act, the young policeman turned to his partner and asked, “Well, how did I do?” “Pretty good,” chuckled the vet, “especially since this is a bus stop.” *****

Dayton’s shell game send mixed signals
By Keith Downey Chairperson MN Republican Party Minnesotans beware. Governor Mark Dayton has been very clear on where he stands with raising taxes on businesses and “the rich” – yes you. It’s much harder to figure out where Governor Dayton and the Democrats are coming from on the issue of taxes and the middle class. They held a press conference this week touting new projections that property taxes would actually decrease in 2014. Keep your eye on those projections, by the way – they come from the same agency that predicted e-pull tabs would finance the new Vikings stadium. So the Governor says low property taxes are a good thing for hardworking Minnesotans. We agree. But he had to raise over $2 billion in new taxes and fees, much of them on the middle class and even poor Minnesotans, to pay for lots of things including his supposed $121 million property tax reduction. So which is it? Are higher taxes good or bad for the middle class? Perhaps Minnesota families can use their projected property tax savings, if it ever materializes, to pay for all of the other cost increases they will experience because of the Dayton/DFL 2013 budget: • Higher energy bills. • Fewer choices and higher costs for childcare under forced unionization of childcare. • Higher premiums, higher copays, higher prescription drug prices and even fewer hours at work because of the healthcare exchange legislation. • New tobacco taxes. • Higher costs to download music and other files from the Internet. • Higher costs for car rentals. Each day it becomes more apparent – Republicans stood against wasteful government spending and for an economic recovery that would continue producing middle class jobs, and what Mark Dayton and the Democrats really wanted was bigger government and more spending. Yes Minnesotans, beware. Despite their spin, the Democrats’ alltax-increases budget taxes everyone. And raising taxes in one area to supposedly reduce taxes in another is more than a gimmick, it’s a shell game. Make sure you are watching their other hand.
Machinery repair tax hurts farmers, rural MN
By Tom Haag MN Corn Growers Assn. During a news conference on July 8, Minnesota governor Mark Dayton said dumping the new tax on farm machinery repair would be his first priority, if the economy allows. Minnesota’s corn farmers thank the Governor for recognizing the impact of this tax and hope this will top his agenda when the legislature reconvenes in February. Actually, the gratitude would extend beyond just farmers. Imposing an additional tax of nearly 7 percent on farmers is not only bad for agriculture, it hurts all of Minnesota's economy - especially rural communities. Unfortunately, the tax was implemented on July 1 and farmers are stuck paying it until the legislature repeals it. Meantime, it’s important that farmers and rural Minnesotans continue reminding the governor and local legislators why this tax is bad policy, and why it needs to go away during the next session. Minnesota’s corn farmers understand the economic and budget challenges faced by Governor Dayton and the legislature. Sometimes, leaders need to make difficult decisions and unpopular legislation gets passed into law. However, this proposal was passed in the last moments of session, with little time for proper debate or consideration of its impact on farmers. Asking farmers to pay almost seven percent more for machinery repairs not only makes little economic sense, it’s also unfair. Farmers sell the food, feed, fuel and fiber they grow in a national market, which includes states that lack such a large tax on machinery repair and maintenance. Unlike a non-farming business, farmers are not able to pass the cost of this new tax onto customers. Instead, the tax eats straight into a farmer’s bottom line and leaves farm families with less money to spend at other local businesses in their community. It’s even worse if you’re a small or beginning farmer who cannot purchase new, expensive machinery and instead rely on maintaining and repairing older equipment. Fixing modern machinery also isn’t cheap. Labor costs can run into the thousands and this tax adds even more to the bill. Deciding to skip certain maintenance might save a

farmer a few bucks short term, but things like worn chains and idlers or poorly maintained seed meters could end up costing a lot in the long run. If just one seed out of 12 doesn’t emerge, it might mean a loss of over $12,000 on 500 acres of corn. It was encouraging to hear Governor Dayton acknowledge that the farm machinery tax is at least on the table for repeal. Now it’s time for Minnesota’s farmers and rural businesses to remind the governor and the legislature to take action and get rid of it come February. The Star Tribune editorial board was right when it called for the repair tax to be repealed in a June 3 editorial titled “Minnesota must repair a tax mistake.” Helping Minnesota’s economy get back on track and create jobs is a challenging task. Unfairly taxing farmers and rural Minnesotans isn’t the way to get the job done.
VFW Auxiliary to meet on Aug. 12
The monthly meeting of the Ladies VFW Auxiliary Post #6031 was called to order by President Carol Dammann at 7:30 p.m. Monday, July 8, according to Secretary Ramona Bade. After the flag pledge, roll call was given with nine members present. The reports from the secretary and treasurer were read and approved. Bills were presented and approved while bulletins were read. The group had a discussion about how much of the dues go to cancer aid and research. The treasurer will present a report on that topic at a future meeting. The group decided to support Hanna Steffer as she participates in the Miracle of Mitch Foundation Triathlon which is a fundraiser for children who have cancer. Having no further business, the meeting was adjourned. The next meeting will be held on Monday night, Aug. 12.
No referendum planned at GSL for this fall
Any talk of a November school building bond referendum is over, but discussion of the space needs at GlencoeSilver Lake is not, according to an article in the McLeod County Chronicle. GSL Superintendent Chris Sonju said the conversation about the facility needs for the district must continue, including talk of a building bond now in the range of $23 to $25 million in the future. The driving force for the building project is space needs at the Helen Baker Elementary School and also space needs at the high school, including a need for more gymnasium space, more classrooms and more locker rooms. The proposed building project would meet those needs as well as the elementary needs in a one-campus approach.

History
90 Years Ago
August 9, 1923 Louis Kill, Editor Fred Riebe is again in charge of his old stand on lower Main Street. He purchased the stock and fixtures from P. F. Doerr, who retired from the business August 1st. Mr. Doerr expects to put his entire time to the sale of Star and Durant cars for which he has the agency. Yesterday afternoon, August 8th, at St. Paul’s Lutheran parsonage, occurred the marriage of Miss Lorene Meyer, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. F. Meyer of Washington Lake Township and Mr. Albert Teschendorf, son of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Teschendorf of Arlington Township. Rev. R. Heidmann officiated. Henry Voight moved his threshing rig back from Green Isle Sunday. While crossing the bridge on the south side of Lake Severance the engine broke through and it took the crew until 11 p.m. to get it out. Judd Lonergan, who plays the shortstop position on the Arlington baseball team, is sojourning in New York City this week. Judd is a member of the team selected by the St. Paul Typographical Union to represent that city in the national tournament at the Polo Grounds. Judd’s team defeated Pittsburg in the first contest on Tuesday. day morning did considerable damage in this area, especially in the vicinity of West Arlington. At the Ernest Dahlke farm it overturned a threshing machine owned by August Pieschke and Mr. Dahlke’s grain elevator. At the Nick Haupt farm across the road a grain elevator was also blown down. Many shade trees in Arlington were damaged. At the rear of the Young-Tjosvold Funeral Home a fruit tree was torn up by the roots and a limb torn from a big shade tree. Sibley County’s 84th annual fair will be staged at Arlington August 13-14-15-16. The fair management this year is prepared to entertain visitors with an elaborate program of entertainment, headliners of which are DeWaldo’s great stage show and the Veterans United Shows. Also on the program are horse races, baseball, a grand fireworks display and, perhaps most interesting of all to many, the big parade. family farm as a living display of his flower and landscape designs. Every spring Duane hauls in dirt and compost and prepares the ground for his latest design. This year he has at least six round, raised flower beds and two wedge-shaped beds planted with hundreds of annuals in different color schemes. There are also borders planted along some of the outbuildings. He finds time for all his planting and designing on days off from his full time job at Farmer Seed.

August 6, 1998 Kurt Menk, Editor Amy Bigaouette, rural Arlington, was chosen as the 199899 Miss Sibley County during coronation ceremonies at the Sibley County Fairgrounds in Arlington last Thursday evening. Laura Vos, Green Isle, was selected as First Princess. Meagan Speckmann, rural Gaylord was chosen as the Second Princess and Emily Mages, Winthrop, was selected as Miss Congeniality. While many people spend their summer vacations relaxing in a luxurious setting, Nancy Cain of rural Green Isle has been busy ministering to children in the Soviet Union. Cain was a part of Mission ’98, a tenday mission trip to that country. Throughout the trip, more than 320 North American volunteers visited thousands of prearranged sites in Russia, Belarus and Ukraine to distribute humanitarian and spiritual aid. Close to 50 local and area children turned out for auditions on Monday in conjunction with the Prairie Fire Children’s Theatre’s original musical production of Tom Sawyer. These kids rehearsed their roles later in the day. The performance will be held in the large gym at the Arlington school on August 7 and 8.
30 Years Ago
August 11, 1983 Val Kill, Editor Denise Revier of Arlington was crowned Queen of Sibley County at the Queen’s Coronation last Thursday night at the fair. Revier is the first Arlington Queen in several years. Betty Farniok, also from Arlington, was crowned first princess. Attendance at this year’s fair was down because of the excessive heat and the economy. Sibley County’s Outstanding Senior Citizens Awards were presented Saturday at the county fair to Frances Burger, Arlington, age 76 and Bill Kahlow, Henderson, age 82. The award is based largely on the number and variety of contributions to community service made after age 65. Duane Otto, son of Mr. and Mrs. Clarence Otto, is a horticulturist. He used the yard of the
