The Arlington City Coun-
cil, during its regular meeting
on Monday night, Sept. 16,
unanimously approved a mo-
tion to approve a proposal
from Abdo, Eick & Meyers,
Mankato, for a comprehen-
sive five-year plan.
The cost, which will be
$10,000, will be covered by
$6,000 from the three differ-
ent utility funds and $4,000
from the general fund.
City Council members Ben
Jaszewski, Jennifer Nuesse,
Curt Reetz, Jason Ruehling
and Galen Wills all voted in
favor of the motion.
The five-year comprehen-
sive plan will include a com-
bination of a debt study, rate
study, capital improvement
plan and five-year budget all
into one document.
It takes into consideration
all funds and develops a plan
that implements the vision of
the City of Arlington for the
next five years, according to
City Administrator Liza Don-
The benefits, according to
Donabauer, are that the com-
prehensive five-year plan will
provide a five-year budget for
all funds, provide both a gen-
eral fund and debt service
fund tax levies along with the
tax impact on citizens, give
the city a road map on capital
items and future needs, pro-
vide a strategy for rates and
tax levies which can be easily
communicated to citizens,
and develop an action plan
for the City of Arlington.
Other Business
The City Council, in other
business, unanimously ap-
proved a motion to authorize
the Juul Contracting Compa-
ny, Hutchinson, to replace
fire hydrants at two locations.
The two locations are at the
intersection of West Alden
Street and Fifth Avenue
Northwest, and near the en-
trance to the Sibley County
The City Council made the
move based on a recommen-
dation from People’s Service.
The cost will be $8,751.
Council approves proposal for comprehensive plan
By Karin Ramige Cornwell
The Sibley East School
Board, during its regular
monthly meeting in Arlington
on Monday night, Sept. 16,
approved a motion to not
renew the coaching contracts
of head girls basketball coach
and co-head golf coach Doug
Flieth for the 2013-14 season.
School Board members
Brian Brandt, Scott Dose,
Beth DuFrane, Anne Karl,
Missy Weber and Dan
Woehler all voted in favor of
the motion.
The School Board, during a
meeting on Monday night,
Aug. 5, approved a motion to
give notice to Flieth that the
coaching provisions of his
contract would not be re-
Flieth did not respond with-
in the 14 days of the notice
prompting the district to
make the formal motion to
not renew the contracts.
Flieth was charged with
one count of interference with
privacy on Tuesday, July 9
for allegedly recording under-
neath a hair stylist’s dress
with his cell phone, according
to the Sibley County Attor-
ney’s Office.
He was also suspended
from his teaching contract du-
ties 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) investiga-
tion concerning licensure.
Flieth appeared in district
court for an arraignment hear-
ing on Thursday, August 8
where he was issued an order
of conditional release on his
own recognizance.
The conditions are to keep
the court and attorney in-
formed of his current address
and to remain law abiding.
An omnibus hearing has
been set for Thursday, Oct.
If convicted, the maximum
penalty for the charge is one
year incarceration and/or up
to a $3,000 fine.
SE School Board doesn’t renew Flieth’s coaching contracts
By Karin Ramige
The Sibley East School
Board received surprising
news from the district’s
business manager, Janna
Tessmer, at the regular
board meeting on Monday
night, Sept. 16.
The 2013 tax levy limi-
tation will decrease by 14
percent for the 2014
payable year.
The main factor to the
decrease was the shift in
the funding percentage ap-
proved during the last
state legislative session.
“The goal of the legisla-
ture was to lessen the bur-
den on the taxpayers,”
Tessmer said.
Though the total amount
of funding will increase to
$876,000 from $834,000
last year, the amount com-
ing from the taxpayers has
dropped and the state aid
has increased.
The district received ap-
proximately $330,000 in
state aid and over a half
million from the tax pay-
ers from last year’s tax
This year, $545,000 will
come from state aid and
$331,000 from the dis-
trict’s taxpayers.
Other contributing fac-
tors include a decrease in
property market values in
the district of around
$16,000,000 and a slight
decline in enrollment.
The district will hold its
Truth in Taxation hearing
at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Dec.
Superintendent Jim
Amsden reported that the
district’s enrollment re-
mains steady from last
year, only down four stu-
dents from the end of the
2012-13 school year.
Enrollment stands at
1,240, which includes 32
migrant students.
The enrollment per
grade is:
Kindergarten - 85
First Grade - 84
Second Grade - 98
Third Grade - 94
Fourth Grade - 92
Fifth Grade - 102
Sixth Grade - 90
Seventh Grade - 89
Eighth Grade - 120
Ninth Grade - 92
Tenth Grade - 94
Eleventh Grade - 99
Twelfth Grade - 90
There are 635 students
at the Gaylord Campus
and 574 in Arlington.
The board also ap-
proved a five-year exclu-
sive beverage agreement
with Pepsi-Cola Bottling
Company, Mankato.
Under the agreement,
Pepsi will supply all of the
beverages in the conces-
sion stands and pop ma-
chines throughout the dis-
In the past, in return for
the exclusive agreement,
Pepsi provided the district
with rewards such as score
They can no longer
legally do that. In return,
the district will receive
cash rebates from Pepsi
which can, in turn, be used
for similar purchases.
The district expects
around $15,000 in rebates
over the five-year period.
The district has had a
similar agreement with
Pepsi since 2001.
In other action, the
• Approved August’s
bills and payments to-
talling $699,062.74.
• Accepted donations for
$374.60 for the wrestling
program, proceeds from
the Lisa Pasvogel’s garage
sale, and $429 from the
Gaylord Rotary Club,
which were the proceeds
of mini donut sales at the
elementary carnival.
A total of 15 members
from Sibley East, includ-
ing board members, ad-
ministration and staff, will
participate in a strategic
planning training session
sponsored by the South
Central Service Coopera-
tive in Mankato beginning
Tuesday, Oct. 8
The board approved the
training at a base cost of
$3,000, plus $85 per par-
ticipant, at the July 15
board meeting.

October marks the 40th an-
niversary for Lutheran Social
Services (LSS) providing
senior nutrition services in
A contract awarding LSS to

in 2007, said Sarah Anderson
in her annual report to the
Sibley County board of com-
missioners at a recent meet-
Despite providing balanced
nutrition with daily safety
and well-being checks, along
with socialization and health
information for six years, An-
derson said there are still mis-
understandings about what
the program is and what it
can do.
“We learn what people are
thinking by doing an annual
survey of customers to get
their feedback,” said Ander-
son. “We use that information
for grant funding and also to
improve the program.”
Anderson supervises the
eastern half of Sibley County,
while Vanessa Steffl does the
same in Winthrop and Gib-
“We get pigeon-holed to
where people think senior
dining is one meal on this day
and if you don’t want that
meal we don’t have anything
to offer,” said Anderson about
misconceptions. “We can
offer a lot of different op-

Anderson added that work-

seniors do not need to be re-
tired to participate. People
can get their meal to go to eat
wherever and whenever. Hot

are available for the weekend,

To Friends and Family,
I would like to thank all of
my friends and family who
had visited me after my sur-
gery and provided gifts.
Your thoughtfulness bright-
ened my day. It is at times
like these that one truly val-
ues good friends and family.
I deeply appreciate every-
ones friendship and I don't
think my recovery would
have been so rapid without
it. It means a great deal to
be surrounded by people
who truly care. I will always
be grateful for your thought-
Sincerely, Rita Melsha

Le Sueur man dies after crash
A Le Sueur man died after injuries he suffered in a
multiple-vehicle accident along Highway 55 in Golden
Valley at 10:30 a.m. Friday, Sept. 13, according to the
Minnesota State Patrol.
A side dump truck driven by Joseph W. Johnson, 64,
Le Sueur, was traveling westbound on Highway 55 and
reportedly struck an eastbound 2012 Toyota Sienna
driven by Shirley R. Knutson, 66, Plymouth, according
to the Minnesota State Patrol. The Knutson vehicle re-
portedly traveled through a red light, the report said.
After the collision, the side dump truck hit a semiphore
and burst into flames. Johnson was trapped inside the
vehicle and was not able to be extricated.
Johnson was transported to the Hennepin County
Medical Center, Minneapolis, where he was later pro-
nounced dead.
Knutson was transported to a nearby hospital and was
listed in serious condition, according to a report on the
KNUJ Radio website.
No other drivers or passengers were injured, accord-
ing to the Minnesota State Patrol.

fore we arrived,” said Vos.
There was no evidence of an ignition source, accord-
ing to Vos.
Cars damaged in accident
A two-vehicle accident reportedly occurred at the in-
tersection of West Alden Street and Seventh Avenue

Plans are well underway
for the annual Arli-Dazzle
celebration set for Saturday,
Dec. 7, according to Arli-
Dazzle Chairperson Kim
Arli-Dazzle, sponsored by
the Arlington Area Chamber
of Commerce, is a daylong
celebration beginning in the
morning with a long-time
community tradition of Santa
Day. Children will delight as
they share heartfelt conversa-
tions with Santa and Mrs.
Claus and enjoy many activi-
ties and crafts. As the day
progresses, anticipation for
the parade grows. The bustle
on Main Street will increase
as the Arlington Fire Depart-
ment will host its second an-
nual Black Top Fishing
Derby. There will be horse
and wagon rides and the
Shell’s Hobo Band will pro-
vide musical entertainment
on Main Street. People can
enjoy a little shopping while
they attend the all new Arli-
Dazzle Vendor Fair. The Ar-
lington Greys will play the
Mankato Baltics in a compet-
itive, but friendly snowball
baseball game. Santa’s rein-
deer will be featured before
the parade. New this year will
be a Vintage Snowmobile
Show and the “Dashin’
Through The Snow” 5K
The highlight of the day
will be the Arli-Dazzle Pa-
rade which will start at 5:30
p.m. There will be a new
staging area this year and the
parade route will cross High-
way 5.
“The Arli-Dazzle requires
countless resources and dol-
lars,” said Schneider. “We
would appreciate donations
of any size. Sponsorships are
available. Sponsoring Arli-
Dazzle will give businesses
or organizations a lot of expo-
Schneider continued, “As
people know, Arli-Dazzle is
very well attended. Arli-Daz-
zle is unique in so many
ways. We do not have a pa-
rade entry fee and we don’t
have a contest for the best pa-
rade float because uniting to-
gether for one magical
evening where we all cele-
brate the Spirit of Christmas
is really special.”

terested people, businesses

Five organizations and one individual recently donat-
ed funds to purchase gear for the Sibley East High
School Band and the newly established Sibley East
Marching Band. Pictured here is the brand new Yama-
ha Drum Line that the Sibley East High School Band
will be using. The line includes four bass drums, four
snare drums and a set of quints, all with new harness-
es. The percussionists were outfitted with Vic Firth
marching quality drumsticks and new bass drum and
quint mallets. In addition, every student in band now
has a flip folder for their pep band music and a lyre to
mount the folder to their instruments. This gear,
along with the new drum line, will also be used when
the band performs at athletic events during the year.
Marching will now be a component of the band cur-
riculum at Sibley East. “We will be marching this year
at the homecoming parade and my hope is that in the
future, we will be able to put on a halftime field show
and march in local community parades,” said Sibley

Dayton wants Vikings
owners to pay fair
share for new stadium
Our View: Warning is a good public relations move,
but it’s a little late in the game
Letter To The Editor
Governor Mark Dayton, in a letter this past Monday, strongly
urged the Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority to negotiate a final
financial agreement which requires Minnesota Vikings owners Zygi
and Mark Wilf to provide a significant share of their financial contri-
bution from their own resources and not from Vikings fans through
the sale of expensive personal seat licenses. These seat licenses are
paid by fans on top of the cost of a season ticket and often are used
by NFL teams to help pay for new stadium construction.
The warning is a good public relations move, but it is a little late
in the game. The Vikings stadium financing legislation, which was
approved in 2012 and signed into law by Governor Dayton, stipu-
lates that revenue from stadium naming rights and personal seat li-
censes counts as part of the team’s contribution to building costs.
Under the legislation, the Vikings are responsible for paying $477
million of the stadium’s $975 million construction cost. With the use
of money from naming rights and personal seat licenses, the Vikings
owners have a sweetheart deal thanks to legislators and Governor
That is what happens when the Minnesota State Legislature makes
deals at the 11th hour of a legislative session. Questions go unan-
swered and concerns are raised months after the legislation is passed
into law. This is becoming a habit. The electronic pulltabs, which
were supposed to fund the state’s share of the new stadium, have
been a disaster.
Governor Dayton and the legislators who supported the new stadi-
um should have set limits on the personal seat licenses before the
legislation was signed into law. In addition, the politicians should
have made a move where some money from the naming rights could
be set aside and used for stadium repairs and renovations in the fu-

While on a road trip, an elderly
couple stopped at a roadside restau-
rant for lunch. After finishing their
meal, they left the restaurant, and re-
sumed their trip.
When leaving, the elderly woman
unknowingly left her glasses on the
table, and she didn't miss them until
they had been driving for about forty
By then, to add to the aggravation,
they had to travel quite a distance
before they could find a place to turn
around, in order to return to the
restaurant to retrieve her glasses.
All the way back, the elderly hus-
band became the classic grouchy old
man. He fussed and complained,
and scolded his wife relentlessly
during the entire return drive. The
more he chided her, the more agitat-
ed he became. He just wouldn't let
up for a single minute.
To her relief, they finally arrived
at the restaurant. As the woman got
out of the car, and hurried inside to
retrieve her glasses, the old geezer
yelled to her, “While you're in
there, you might as well get my hat
and the credit card.”
Mike was a single guy living at
home with his father and working in
the family business. When he found
out he was going to inherit a fortune
once his sickly father died, he decid-
ed he needed a wife with whom to
share his fortune.
One evening at an investment
meeting, he spotted the most beauti-
ful woman he had ever seen. Her
natural beauty took his breath away.
“I may look like just an ordinary
man,” he said to her, “but in just a
few years, my father will die, and
I’ll inherit 20 million dollars.”
Impressed, the woman obtained
his business card.
Three days later, she became his
Women are so much better at es-
tate planning than men.
After 50 years of wondering why
he didn’t look like his younger sister
or brother, the man finally got up the
nerve to ask his mother if he was
“Yes, you were, son,” his mother
said as she started to cry softly.
“But it didn’t work out and they
brought you back.”
A pastor goes to the dentist for a
set of false teeth.
The first Sunday after he gets his
teeth, he talks for only eight min-
utes. The second Sunday, he talks for
only 10 minutes. The following Sun-
day, he talks for two hours and 48
The congregation has to mob him
to get him down from the pulpit, and
they ask him what happened.
The pastor explains the first Sun-
day his gums hurt so bad he couldn't
talk for more than eight minutes.
The second Sunday his gums hurt
too much to talk for more than 10
But, the third Sunday, by mis-
take he put his wife’s teeth in and
couldn't stop talking.
To The Editor,
The Sibley County GOP board
members thank the honorable peo-
ple expressing concern about the
proposed Cornish Township wind
farm southwest of Winthrop near the
golf course. Here are a few things
no one ever gets told about the fol-
lowing destructive consequences
that may go with a wind farm:
1. Road damage
2. Pipeline damage
3. Water contamination
4. Wildlife preservation
5. Stray voltage
6. Return on investment
Road Damage: Did you know that
massive over sized trucks, some-
times carrying weight up to 235,000
pounds, and approximately 211 feet
long (70 yards), will drive through
Sibley County hauling blades and
equipment? Did you know that dur-
ing set-up and construction over
3,000 semi loads of various weights
will drive through Sibley County to
get to areas closest to the tower
sites? Did you know taxpayers
could pay for road damage, if the
wind developers are not held to a
higher standard? No one told us ei-
Pipeline Damage: Did you know
there are three natural gas pipelines
near the proposed Cornish township
construction site that these over
weight loads will be going over?
Did you know one of the pipelines is
many, many years old? Did you
know that these truck loads could
cause leaks where the pipes are de-
teriorated? Did you know there is no
mention of pipelines in the applica-
tion and permitting process? No
one told us either.
Groundwater Contamination: Did
you know pipeline leaks elsewhere
have created extensive ground water
contamination? Did you know those
families now cannot drink their well
water and must bring in bottled
water? Did you know that natural
gas contaminated ground water may
be unusable for years? No one told
us either.
Wildlife Preservation: Did you
know any contaminated run-off
from the proposed Cornish tower
sites will go directly into tributaries
going into the Rush River, which
goes through the Alfsborg Wildlife
Area, right next to the golf course,
which finally drains into the Min-
nesota River? Did you know any
contaminated water along that
stretch may be drunk by wildlife?
Did you know that industrial wind
farms kill so many bald eagles they
cannot get an accurate count and no
one so far has been prosecuted? No
one told us either.
Stray Voltage: Did you know stray
voltage, also known as induced volt-
age, is proven to increase near wind
turbines? Did you know stray volt-
age can drive deep into the ground?
Did you know stray voltage striking
a natural gas pipeline may have con-
sequences of death, injury, and prop-
erty damage, even for people miles
away, which could include Winthrop
residents? No one told us either.
Return on Investment: Did you
know that industrial wind is so inef-
fective that it leads to higher rates?
According to the Minnesota Rural
Electric Association (MREA), in-
dustrial wind caused rural rate pay-
ers to lose $70 million in 2011 just
on the portion of wind electricity
generated at times when the utilities
could not use it. Wind promoters try
to convince us that the rural coun-
ties, townships and residents who
have turbines located get an eco-
nomic benefit, and in 2011 that in-
deed was $13 million. So what if
rural industrial wind generates $13
million only to saddle ratepayers
with a $70 million tab? This kind of
math gets us nothing but higher and
higher utilities rates. That’s right,
no one told us either.
To our many good friends, family,
and neighbors in Sibley County, we
apologize for being late to you with
information and we thank the others
striving to educate us. Most people
do not oppose renewable energy, nor
do we. We are however opposed to
allowing you and us to be put in sit-
uations of grave health risk. In the
last 10 years enough evidence has
poured in about the dangers with
wind farms that you would think by
now someone would say, “Whoa!
We need to reconsider the merits of
these projects. People might get
hurt.” Without even factoring in
the anecdotal evidence that industri-
al wind may interfere with hearing
aids or pacemakers, GPS systems on
tractors and combines, medical heli-
copter radio and guidance systems,
television, computer and phone in-
terruptions, the volume of docu-
mented evidence – which is increas-
ing – should be enough for the gov-
ernment to put a stop to any more
wind farms.
Yet, there is good to come out of
this episode . . . all of us are being
reminded, again, of the inherent
danger of accepting what govern-
ment agencies and officials or politi-
cians tell us as being fact or “good
for us”. We all know liberals never
admit when they are wrong on the
facts because if they did once they
would be at the confessional early
and often and on many issues. Con-
servatives concluded a long time
ago that liberal bureaucrats, both
GOP and DFL, never quite get it
right when it comes to our economic
well being and public health or the
greater good.

“We were a bit tight all
night and it showed especial-
ly in our serve receive,” said
Sibley East head coach Chip
Wolverton. “We had a hard
time all night getting the ball
on target. Because of that, we
couldn’t run our offense and
kept giving Belle Plaine free
balls which they proved to be
very capable of turning into
strong offensive attacks. To
our credit, we were able to
play with them for stretches,
but had a hard time maintain-
ing any consistency. The
girls were disappointed after
the loss, but seem determined
to work hard to improve.”
Wolverton added, “It was
a great atmosphere, almost
playoff like, which is a good
experience for our young
team. Should we play Belle
Plaine again this year, it
would be in the sub-section
playoffs. Our girls are very
anxious to get that second
chance if it should happen.”

In a game that did not fea-
ture a punt by either team, the
Sibley East varsity football
team lost to visiting Belle
Plaine 41-27 in Minnesota
River Conference action on
Friday night, Sept. 13.
The Tigers drew first blood
when sophomore quarterback
Luke Narveson hit paydirt on
a 3-yard run. Senior Jordan
Buesgens followed with the
extra point kick as Belle
Plaine jumped out to a 7-0
lead in the first quarter.
The Wolverines responded
with a 1-yard touchdown run
by senior running back Erik
Danielson. Senior Quentin
Gex booted the extra point
kick as Sibley East evened
the score at 7-7 late in the
opening quarter.
The two teams scored two
touchdowns each during the
second quarter.
Narveson ran 10 yards for
a touchdown for Belle Plaine
early in the second quarter.
The extra point kick by Bues-
gens failed as the Tigers had
to settle for a 13-7 advantage.
Sibley East rebounded
when junior Lukas Bullert
caught a 5-yard touchdown
pass from senior quarterback
Brody Rodning. Gex fol-
lowed with the extra point
kick as the Wolverines
jumped ahead 14-13.
Belle Plaine responded
with a 10-yard touchdown
pass from Narveson to senior
Derek Dahlke. A run for the
two-point conversion failed
as the Tigers had to settle for
a 19-14 lead.
The Wolverines scored
their next touchdown when
senior Beau Swenson found
the end zone on a 35-yard
run. A run for the two-point
conversion also failed as Sib-
ley East went into the locker
room with a 20-19 halftime
Sibley East scored first in
the third quarter when
Danielson hit paydirt on a 1-
yard plunge. Gex converted
the extra point kick as Sibley
East increased its lead to 27-
19 early in the third quarter.
That would be the last
scoring for Sibley East. The
Wolverines engineered two
more long drives, but one
stalled on downs deep in
Belle Plaine territory while a
fumble stopped another one
at midfield.
Belle Plaine, behind the
arm of Narveson, continued
the scoring with three more
touchdown passes enroute to
the 41-27 win.

oats and some barley were de-

The Boys of Wasioja, a
Civil War Documentary
screening, was very well at-
tended last month. This
shows a reenactment that tells
the war story as well as the
hardships that the soldiers en-
dured. The boys were re-
cruited from Northwestern
College Seminary and Dodge
County to muster at Fort
Snelling as the Second Min-
nesota Company C. in 1861.
These were “foot soldiers”
who fought five battles, in-
cluding battle of Chicka-
munga and Sherman’s March
to the Sea. A diary kept by
the drummer boy charted
5,000-plus miles to the end of
the wars in 1865.
There are a few special
events happening around the
museum this month. The
first is Henderson Heritage
Days. On Saturday, Sept. 21,
the museum will be open
from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. to co-
incide with other events of
the day. The events include
tractor and wagon tours to 10
houses visiting inside or out-
side where character actors
will relate some history of the
houses. There will be walking
and riding during the tour.
Other character actors will
also be on Main Street to in-
vite visitors to the houses.
Merchandise venders as well
as food vendors will be avail-
able. A separate event in the
evening will take place at
Church of St. Joseph. There
will be a Polka Mass at 5
p.m. with a casserole supper,
salads and pies beginning at
5:30 p.m.
The SCHS is still looking
for any information about
Sibley County Country
Schools. People who have
any memorabilia, photos or
stories are encouraged to call
SCHS to meet in Arlington on Sept. 24
Utility customers around
the country are being targeted
by the ‘Green Dot’ pre-paid
debit card scam, and Center-
Point Energy is warning cus-
tomers to be alert.
Posing as electric company
employees, scammers are
calling customers to tell them
they are behind on their elec-
tric bills and have a short
time to make a payment. The
customers are told to pur-
chase a Green Dot pre-paid
debit card or other type of re-
loadable debit card, load the
card with money and then
provide the serial number
from the card to avoid having
their electricity shut off.
It is important to note that
while CenterPoint Energy
does bill customers for natu-
ral gas service, it does not
send bills for electric service
and does not provide electric
service in Minnesota. There-
fore, any caller posing as a
CenterPoint Energy employ-
ee asking for payment of an
electric bill should be consid-
ered suspicious and reported
to the customer’s Retail Elec-
tric Provider - the company
that bills them for electric

enced this type of activity, we

ment, file an identity theft re-
port and contact their bank or
other financial institution(s)
to report an incident,” said
Gregory Knight, vice presi-
dent of CenterPoint Energy’s

Tall Sunflower
Landon and Nolan Fisher planted a few
sunflower seeds in Grandma Carol’s
garden near Arlington this spring. The
directions on the seed package indicat-
ed that the plants could reach 12 feet in
height if the conditions were right. It
looks like the conditions were right.
Landon and Nolan are the sons of
Corey and Heidi Jo Fisher, Arlington.
Minnesota’s topsoil mois-
ture has improved thanks to
the recent rainfall.
The US Department of
Agriculture announced that
an average of just under an
inch of rain fell statewide last
week, according to the KNUJ
Radio website. Central Min-
nesota received the most rain-
fall with around 1 1/2 inches.
Minnesota’s topsoil mois-
ture improved to 36 percent
adequate. However, subsoil
moisture declined to 34 per-
cent adequate.
Minnesota farmers have
nearly finished the small
grain harvest. The spring
wheat harvest is slightly
ahead of normal at 97 percent
complete. Corn and soybean
development, however, con-
tinues to lag behind last
year’s pace. Corn is 5 percent
mature compared with last
year’s 75 percent. Fifty-eight
percent of the soybean crop is
turning yellow. That is 36
percent behind last year.
Topsoil moisture has improved thanks to recent rain
The Minnesota Ag Statis-
tics Field Office released the
field crop status report on
Sept. 9 which reports that 85
percent of corn was in the
dough stage compared to 94
percent average. Fifty percent
of corn was in the dent stage
compared to 72 percent aver-
age. A concern for the bal-
ance of this fall and next
spring is the amount of mois-
ture in the topsoil which was
rated last week as 31 percent
very short and 38 percent
short across Minnesota’s
major crop growing area. In
many areas of the state, how-
ever, the corn is yet rated 44
percent in good condition be-
cause of previous rains this
summer and good water hold-
ing capacities in heavier tex-
tured soils in southern Min-
Corn growers in Minnesota
may want to predict grain
yields prior to harvest in
order to help develop grain
marketing and harvest plans.
One option is to use a recent-
ly updated yield component
method originally developed
by the Agricultural Engineer-
ing Department at the Univer-
sity of Illinois. These yield
components include number
of ears per acre, number of
kernel rows per ear, number
of kernels per row, and
weight per kernel.
Final weight per kernel ob-
viously cannot be measured
until the grain is mature (ker-
nel black layer) and, realisti-
cally, at harvest moisture.
Consequently, an average
value for kernel weight, ex-
pressed as 80,000 kernels per
56-pound bushel, is used as a
proverbial “fudge factor” in
the yield estimation equation.
The equation originally used
a “fudge factor” of 90, but
kernel size has increased as
hybrids have improved over
the years. Consequently, a
“fudge factor” of 75 to 85 is a
more realistic value to use
Crop uniformity greatly in-
fluences the accuracy of any
yield estimation technique.
The less uniform the field,
the greater the number of
samples that should be taken
to estimate yield for the field.
Calculate estimated grain
yield using the Yield Compo-
nent Method as follows:
• Count the number of har-
vestable ears in a length of
row equivalent to 1/1000th
acre. For 30-inch (2.5 feet)
rows, this equals 17.4 feet.
For other row spacings, di-
vide 43,560 by the row spac-
ing (in feet) and then divide
that result by 1000
• On every fifth ear, count
the number of kernel rows
per ear and determine the av-
erage. Try to use a system
such as the fifth, ninth, and
13th ears from one end of the
• On each of these ears
count the number of kernels
per row and determine the av-
erage. Then multiply each
ear's row number by its num-
ber of kernels per row to cal-
culate the total number of
kernels for each ear. (Do not
count kernels on either the
butt or tip of the ear that are
less than half the size of nor-
mal size kernels.)
• Yield (bushels per acre)
equals (ear number) x (aver-
age row number) x (average
kernel number) divided by
80* = bushels per acre
• *Range in kernel number
per bushel based on growing
conditions: Excellent = less
than 75, Average = 75 to 85
and Poor growing conditions
= greater than 85
• Repeat the procedure for
at least four additional sites
across the field. Calculate the
average yield for all the sites
to estimate the yield for the
For example, you are eval-
uating a field with 30-inch
rows and counted 30 ears (per
17’ 5” = row section). Calcu-
late that the average number
of kernels per ear, based on
sampling the average of the
fifth, ninth, and 13th ears in
the sampling row, was 511.
The estimated yield for that
site would (30 x 511) divided
by 80, which equals 192

Church News
The Catholic Diocese of
New Ulm has been named in
three lawsuits alleging sexual
misconduct by David Roney,
a deceased priest of the Dio-
cese of New Ulm. The law-
suits, filed in the Fifth Judi-
cial District Court for the
State of Minnesota on Friday,
Sept. 13, allege Roney sexu-
ally abused one female minor
while serving at the Church
of St. Francis in Benson and
two female minors while
serving at the Church of St.
Mary in Willmar.
Roney was ordained for the
Archdiocese of St. Paul and
Minneapolis in August of
1945. His assignments in the
archdiocese included assis-
tant pastor at the Basilica of
St. Mary in Minneapolis from
1945 to 1952, and pastor at
the Churches of St. Francis in
St. Croix Beach from 1952 to
1955, and St. John-Assump-
tion in Faxon Township from
1955 to 1957.
The Diocese of New Ulm
was formed in 1957. At that
time, when a new diocese
was created, all priests serv-
ing within the boundaries of
that diocese automatically be-
came part of it. Roney served
as pastor at five parishes in
the Diocese of New Ulm: the
Church of St. John-Assump-
tion in Faxon Township from
1957-58, the Church of St.
Paul in Walnut Grove from
1958 to 1963, the Church of
St. Francis in Benson from
1963 to 1967, the Church of
St. Mary in Willmar from
1967 to 1980, and the Church
of St. Gregory in Lafayette
from 1980 to 1993. He also
served as director of the
diocesan San Lucas Mission
Office and as director of the
Propagation of the Faith.
Roney retired from active
ministry in 1993 and resided
in San Lucas Toliman,
Guatemala, starting in 1994.
Roney died at the age of 82
on Jan. 27, 2003.
The diocese will be investi-
gating the claims in the three
lawsuits, but have no facts to
report about those claims at
this time.
The Diocese of New Ulm
deeply regrets the long-last-
ing and devastating effects of
sexual misconduct on the part
of clergy. Such misconduct
requires positive action on
the part of the Diocese of
New Ulm. It has been
strengthening the systems and
procedures in order to ad-
dress this grave issue by fol-
lowing the U.S. bishops’
“Charter for the Protection of
Children and Young People,”
established in June 2002.
The Diocese of New Ulm
has been diligent in its efforts
to establish a safe environ-
ment program that educates
clergy, teachers, parents and
students, and helps them
identify and prevent sexual
misconduct. The New Ulm
Diocese is committed to of-
fering help and healing to
anyone who has been a vic-
tim of sexual misconduct and
to preventing this terrible
crime from occurring in the
diocese. Anyone who has suf-
fered sexual abuse, exploita-
tion or harassment by a
priest, deacon, pastor or pas-
toral administrator of the
Diocese of New Ulm is asked
to report such misconduct to

nator or the Bishop’s Dele-

eral Older American Act dol-
lars, we cannot have a set
charge for the meals,” said
Anderson. “We have a sug-
gested donation, but no one is
ever turned away for inability
to pay. That is where we get
some of the stigma that this is
welfare. It’s not. There is no
income requirement, but we
request a confidential dona-
A suggested donation is be-
tween $3.85 and $6.70 per
meal. SNAP food support
benefits can be used in lieu of
cash donations. Adults under
60 can participate, but must
pay the full cost of the meal
of $6.70.
“One of the newest things
we are excited about is we can
sell gift certificates through
our web site,” said Anderson
about www.lssmn.org/nutri-
tion. “As a Christmas present
you can buy mom lunch every
day. The program helps peo-
ple who spent time in a nurs-
ing facility to come back
Anderson said the program
does not come close to cover-
ing its costs in the donation
system. The average congre-
gate dining donation in Ar-
lington is $1.76. It is a little
better in Gaylord at $3.34,
while Gibbon is at $2.69,
Henderson $2.21 and
Winthrop $3.18. Donations
for meals on wheels are not
doing well either.
“In the customer survey, the
vast majority of those served
are over 80 living on their
own,” said Anderson. “Some
94 percent said they would
recommend the services to
others. Yet, a small number
said they are able to con-
tribute $3 or less per meal.”
The LSS nutrition program
is part of the federal sequester
and there may be changes
with the services offered in
2014 when budget cuts could
take place. Anderson said the
program is asked to look at
criteria for who uses the serv-
ices in the future.
“Home delivered meals
provide a safety and well-
being check,” said Anderson.
“This is something we can do
over an out-of-town provider.
It is reassurance to a family
that someone is looking in.
This is a value-added part of
the program that is not often
talked about.”
