Change in plan is big county cost saver
By Dave Pedersen Correspondent The motto of saying you need to spend money to make money may hold true for Sibley County after the board of commissioners changed some existing road improvement plans at the meeting on Tuesday, Aug. 27. Tim Becker, Public Works Director, asked the board to approve a Professional Services Agreement with SRF Consulting Group, Inc. for completing plan changes to 287th Avenue and CR 166, including the bridge over High Island Creek. The project is attached to the work being done next year on the Prairie Line Trail. Becker said the cost is $8,210, but it will save the township about $100,000 and the county $43,000. The new plan involves changing the proposed bituminous paved shoulder to gravel. The project also would remove bituminous turn and bypass lanes and change them to gravel. “In view of the budget situation, it would certainly sound like a good idea,” said County Commissioner Bill Pinske. “Are we going to revise the budget to show that?” Becker said when he gets the final cost figures he will revise the budget at that point. The next budget workshop session was expected to be held in the courthouse at 9 a.m. Wednesday, Sept. 4.
In other business, Vicki Stock, Public Health and Human Services Director, said the Able-Bodied Adults Without Dependents Program (ABAWD) involving food
support will be reinstated Oct. 1. Stock said back in 2009 the program was suspended because of the high unemployment rate and the recession. The ABAWD program requires that adults between the ages of 18-50, who are on

Tornado sirens inadvertently set off in Arlington last Saturday evening
By Kurt Menk Editor Some Arlington residents were mystified and confused when the tornado sirens were set off in the community around 9:46 p.m. Saturday, Aug 31. The brief rainfall had stopped and it looked like the threat of any severe weather had passed. According to Emergency Manager Tim Haggenmiller, the Sibley County Sheriff’s Department had an unknown power surge which took out one of its consoles and inadvertently set off the tornado sirens in the City of Arlington.
Preliminary tax levy shows a 4.8% hike in City of Arlington
By Kurt Menk Editor The Arlington City Council, during its regular meeting on Tuesday night, Sept. 3, unanimously adopted a resolution to approve the preliminary 2013 tax levy for collection in 2014. City Council members Ben Jaszewski, Jennifer Nuesse, Curt Reetz, Jason Ruehling and Galen Wills all voted in favor of the motion. According to City Administrator Liza Donabauer, the preliminary 2013 tax levy for collection in 2014 will increase to $793,462 or about a 4.84 percent hike. The preliminary tax levy includes over $77,000 in additional local government aid. It does not include about $91,000 in lease money from the Sibley Medical Center. The City Council made the move based on discussions it had during recent budget meetings. The City of Arlington must certify the preliminary tax levy to the Sibley County Auditor before Sunday, Sept. 15. The City Council, according to Mayor Jim Kreft, has a goal to zero percent increase. To maintain the same tax levy rate as last year, the City Council will have to trim just over $16,000. The City Council will hold a public comment meeting on the proposed tax levy before final approval at 6 p.m. Monday, Dec. 2. The City Council can only decrease the preliminary tax levy before final approval. In the fall of 2012, the City Council set the preliminary tax levy at 6.2 percent, but adjusted the final tax levy to reflect a zero percent increase. In the fall of 2011, the City Council set the preliminary tax levy at five percent, but adjusted the final tax levy to reflect a 2.2 percent increase. In the fall of 2010, the City Council set the preliminary tax levy at an increase of 10.7 percent, but adjusted the final tax levy to reflect a zero percent increase. Previous to that, the final tax levies were 5.9 percent, three percent and three percent.
Other Business
Donabauer announced that the Arlington Area Ambulance Service will host its 21st annual Harvest Feast event at the Community Center from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Friday, Sept. 20. She also announced that the Arlington Area Ambulance Service and Arlington Fire Department will host a Fall Appreciation Open House at the new EMS Building at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 25. The open house is scheduled for only City Council and township elected officials. The Arlington City Council will hold its next regular meeting at 6:30 p.m. Monday, Sept. 16.

Bull riding event to benefit wounded warrior
By Kurt Menk Editor The Pro Auto N.Y.A. bull riding event, which will be held in the Horse Arena at the Sibley County Fairgrounds in Arlington at 6 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 7, will benefit an area wounded warrior through Jared Allen’s Homes 4 Wounded Warriors. Two dollars from every adult ticket and 100 percent of the proceeds from the live auction will go toward the construction of a new home for U.S. Marine Colin Faust, 24, who was wounded in 2010. His new home, a complete build, will be constructed in Minnestrista. Faust, who graduated from the Waconia High School, stepped on an improvised explosive device while on foot patrol in Afghanistan. Faust, who is single, lost one leg. His other leg was severely damaged. “Colin and his family will be at the event,” said Matt Scharping, who together with his wife, Kelly, own Phenom Genetics, Arlington. “”We’re pretty excited to have him here.”
Bull Riding
The idea for the bull riding event surfaced with the Sibley County Fair Board which later teamed up with Phenom Genetics and Jared Allen’s Homes 4 Wounded Warriors. The event will consist of bull team competition as well as bull riding competition, according to Matt Scharping. The bulls will be competing for $13,000 while the bull riders will be competing for over $8,000, he said. The bulls will be coming from Minnesota, North Dakota, Wisconsin and Illinois. The bull riders will be coming from Minnesota, Wisconsin, Missouri, Iowa, North Dakota, South Dakota, Colorado and Wyoming. Overall, there will be around 30 bull riders and about 40 bull rides. Local bull riders will include Austin Kube, Arlington, and Taylor Bohlmann, Green Isle, who both will be riding the exhibition bulls. Ryan Stumm, Arlington, will be competing in the regular bull riding event. Phenom Genetics, according to Matt Scharping, will provide two teams of bulls
for the event. In addition, there will be mutton bustin’ for the kids.
Live Auction
Minnesota Vikings defensive end Jared Allen will not be able to attend the event, but his autographed memorabilia will be part of the live auction. The live auction will include a Jared Allen autographed helmet, autographed jersey, autographed custom belt buckle, custom laser cut Jared Allen fire pit and more.
Following the approximate 2 1/2-hour event, Scarlet County will provide musical entertainment near the Horse Arena for four hours.
Teaming Up
This is the second time that Phenom Genetics and Jared Allen’s Homes 4 Wounded Warriors have teamed up for a local event to benefit the charity. A local event raised about $22,000 for the charity last March.

South Country Health Alliance exceeds expectations, looks to future
By Dave Pedersen Correspondent South Country Health Alliance (SCHA), a countybased purchasing health plan, exceeded revenue expectations, reported Chief Executive Officer Leota Lind at the Aug. 27 Sibley County board of commissioners meeting. Lind presented her semi-annual report to the board. The year has been a positive one so far with income up about $4.4 million for the first half of the year. “Given we were looking at Thank You I’d like to thank everyone when I had hip surgery. Pastor Kurt, Dr. Mair, family and friends, and nurses at Waconia Ridgeview hospital. A special thank you to Sibley Medical home care and P.T. for gifts and cards. Very much appreciated. Don Kubal *35Ea having a break even budget, we have exceeded expectations,” said Lind. “A number of things are impacting that. Enrollment is higher than anticipated and we are seeing less in medical expenses than we usually have. Enrollment for the 12-county program is more than 24,000.” Lind added that she was somewhat concerned knowing the state is going to a new health insurance system that will create a rate adjustment the first week in September. “That still will be happening, but the initial indication is the adjustment for us will be very minimal,” noted Lind. “One reason is we had a decrease in risk management for our Medicaid patients.” One of the big pieces going on right now at SCHA is the recruiting for a new medical director. Three finalists were selected and an offer has been made. Lind said South Country Health Alliance has moved into a stage of looking ahead at strategic plans to put in place to move the organization forward. “A big focus this year is we are continuing to work with the other county based purchasing (CBP) plans on our legislative efforts and how CBP fits into the whole issue of heath care reform,” said Lind. “When we looked at the objectives that the Governor and the state have laid out for health care reform, we see we are in alignment.” Lind reported that the SCHA leadership team is starting to look ahead at what impact health care reform will have on the program. “We will ask what we need to position ourselves to be able to respond to changes that will come with health care reform,” added Lind. “What are our priority areas? One big piece for us is a need for technology. While we have a lot of data that is available to us, now we need to be able to share better that data
Tractor trailer enters ditch

Svara, who was wearing a seatbelt, was transported by the Winthrop Ambulance to the Sibley Medical Center in Arlington where he was treated for minor injuries, according to the report. The Minnesota State Patrol, Gibbon Police Department and Gibbon Fire Department also assisted at the scene.

G.I. City Council adopts resolution to finance purchase of new fire truck
By Kurt Menk Editor The Green Isle City Council, during its regular meeting on Tuesday night, Aug. 27, voted 4-0 and adopted a resolution to finance the purchase of a 2014 Freightliner fire truck from Forstner Fire Apparatus for $269,675. Mayor Dale ZumBerge and City Council members Todd Burg, Shawn Harms and Mark Wentzlaff all voted in favor of the resolution. City Council member Brian Oelfke had a prior commitment and was unable to attend the meeting. The resolution authorizes the loan of up to a maximum of $200,000 from the CornerStone State Bank, Green Isle, for a 10-year term at a 3.25 percent interest rate. The financing will be conducted under the authority of a Minnesota Statute to issue certificates of indebtedness for the purchase of public safety equipment. The amount for the chassis which will be paid upon the delivery to Forstner in November of 2013 will be the Green Isle Fire Department ($65,000), City of Green Isle ($8,821.80), Green Isle Township ($3,630.51), Washington Lake Township ($3,834.51) and Jessenland Township ($101.79). The amount to be paid upon the delivery of the truck in May of 2014 will be the City of Green Isle ($101,355.80), Green Isle Township ($41,711.81), Washington Lake Township ($44,050.79) and Jessenland Township ($1,169.49). The townships will have the option to pay their amounts up front or pay the City of Green Isle throughout the length of the loan. The townships, in turn, will be responsible to pay their respective interest in connection with the loan.

The City Council acknowledged a letter from Green Isle resident Sue Kreger in opposition of a recent money request from the Green Isle Baseball Association at the previous regular meeting. The baseball association made the request, $5,000 a year for four years, to assist with improvements at Irish Yard in preparation for the 2017 Minnesota State Amateur Baseball Tournament hosted by Green Isle, Hamburg and Norwood. The City Council, during its same regular meeting, voted 3-2 to place $5,000 in the 2014 budget for park improvements at Irish Yard. ZumBerge, Burg and Oelfke voted in favor of the motion. Harms and Wentzlaff voted against the motion. The City Council will revisit the yearly $5,000 request each year. Sue Kreger did not write the letter to discourage Green Isle’s opportunity to host the state tournament, but voiced concerns on how the park improvements would positively benefit the community. Although the city does own the baseball park, Sue Kreger pointed out that it was the Green Isle Baseball Association that submitted a bid to host the state tournament, not the City of Green Isle. Therefore, she believed that it should be the responsibility of the baseball association to fund the necessary improvements. She added that once the three-weekend tournament has concluded, the base-
ball association would have received all the revenues and an upgraded baseball park. Sue Kreger said she would have no problem with the money request if the City of Green Isle could afford other basic services and needs like repaired streets, mosquito control and repairs at the city park. Furthermore, Sue Kreger was disappointed that the three elected officials who voted in favor of the money request are not living up to their campaign promises from last fall to basically keep taxes low.

The Story Of Our Summer
These construction signs and orange cones were temporarily placed on the northeast corner of the Sibley East playground in Arlington over the Labor Day weekend. The collection of construction signs and orange cones tells the story of our summer.
Water Bills & Clean Up
Green Isle City Clerk Bert Panning announced that he has sent out 15 letters to residents for delinquent water bills. In addition, Panning has sent out a couple of letters to residents to clean up their properties. The discussion on both topics centered around how Panning should proceed on each matter. Wentzlaff stated that the City Council has a number of ordinances, but it does not enforce them. In regard to the delinquent water bills, the goal is to have each affected resident set up a payment plan. If the resident does not cooperate, the city plans to shut off the water at the affected property and assess the delinquent water bill to the homeowner’s property taxes. In regard to the properties that need clean up, the City Council authorized Panning to send out letters to affected property owners. The specific letters will be firm with a reasonable deadline.
New Sibley Medical Clinic is under construction
A new 4,000 square foot medical clinic under construction, on the Good Samaritan Winthrop campus, is projected to open in midDecember, according to an article in the Winthrop News. “We wanted to upgrade our space and provide easier access for our patients,” said Sibley Medical Center CEO Todd Sandberg. “With the nursing home and now an assisted living to be located there, those patients will be able to go right down the hall to see their physician or provider.” The new clinic will have five exam rooms and two rooms for providers. The clinic will also be upgrading its x-ray equipment.

Elected city officials set their preliminary tax levies
Our View: Don’t be alarmed. Preliminary tax levies usually decrease before final tax levies are approved
It happens every year. The headlines in the local newspaper state that local and area elected city officials have approved an increase in their respective preliminary tax levies. As a result, some local and area residents are shocked and get upset about the hike to their local property taxes. Even though the accompanying article states that the goal of these elected city officials is to decrease their respective preliminary tax levies before final approval, some people still believe the first figure they see in a headline is going to be the same rate in the end. That is normally not the case in the communities of Arlington and Green Isle. Last year, for example, the Arlington City Council approved a 6.2 increase in its preliminary tax levy, but arrived at a zero percent hike when the final tax levy was approved. The Green Isle City Council, last year, wasted no time with a zero percent increase in its preliminary tax levy. The group maintained the same rate when the final tax levy was approved. The city councils in Arlington and Green Isle normally set their respective preliminary tax levy at a higher rate to give themselves a little wiggle room. In the end, however, these same elected city officials usually decrease the amount when their respective final tax levy is approved. With an increase in local government aid this year, their task should be much easier than in past years. If the rate remains the same or only drops a bit from the preliminary tax levy to the proposed final tax levy, citizens will have an opportunity to voice their concerns during the truth in taxation public hearings in December. -K.M.
Letters To The Editor
Electing and re-electing Obama is terrible mistake
To The Editor, People that graduate from college seem to think that the education is sufficient for a successful career. In my opinion, it’s a good start. In my case, I graduated from college and spent eight years in the production part of the feed business. I then spent two years with a very large grain company. I then spent three years selling equipment to feed and grain people. All of this time, I had a strong desire to go into business for myself. I quit my job and started manufacturing equipment in 1966. I finally bought an old repair shop which had the equipment I needed. I struggled, but finally made it to the present time because I knew how to make machinery that worked, knew how to sell it, and was honest and forthright in my dealings. I made it and now sell it all over the world, and business is very good. I have made a successful company of Scott Equipment. Even with the experience I had, it was not easy. When you compare what I had, experience, skill, etc., and compare it to our president of the United States, who is now the most powerful person in the whole world, he was not qualified. He took this job because we, the voters, did not have brains enough to know what we were doing. We not only voted for him once, but even with his record, we voted for him two times. What a terrible mistake! R.V. (Dick) Lucas Jordan

Afterwards the wife’s mother asked her how it went. “Oh, it was terrible,” the daughter replied. “Everything went wrong. We overslept, and then we got a flat tire, and the worst part was that I caught more fish than he did!” ***** When the lodge meeting broke up, John confided to a friend. “Mike, I’m in a terrible pickle! I’m strapped for cash and I haven’t the slightest idea where I’m going to get it from!” “I’m glad to hear that,” answered Mike. “I was afraid you might have an idea you could borrow it from me!” ***** A doctor remarked on his patient’s ruddy complexion. “I know” the patient said. “It’s high blood pressure. It’s from my family.” “Your mother’s side or father’s side?” questioned the doctor. “Neither, my wife’s,” the patient replied. “What?” the doctor said. “That can’t be. How can you get it from your wife’s family?” “Oh yeah,” the patient responded, “You should meet them sometime!” ***** An employee approached his boss regarding a dispute on his paycheck. Employee: “Sir, this is $100 less than my salary.” Boss: “I know. But last month, when you were overpaid $100 by mistake, you didn’t complain!” Employee: “Well, I don’t mind an occasional mistake, sir, but it seems to be becoming a habit, now!” ***** Wife : “You hate my relatives!” Husband: “No, I don’t! In fact, I like your mother-in-law more than I like mine.” ***** A presser in a tailor shop arrived one morning wearing a good sized diamond ring. One of the tailors noticed the sparkler and asked about it. “My mother-in-law gave me a thousand dollars before she passed away. She said that when she dies, I should buy a beautiful stone. So I did!” ***** Office executive: “Sir, can I have a day off next week to visit my mother-in-law?” Boss: “Certainly not!” Office executive: “Thank you so much sir! I knew you would be understanding.” ***** Jim was in a bad mood, and anyone who got in his way was going to regret it. Jim walked into his favorite restaurant and plopped himself down on a chair. “Get me a steak well done with mashed potatoes.” Three minutes later when his order came, Jim screamed, “Didn’t you hear me say well done?” “Why thank you sir,” the waitress smiled. “That was the first compliment I got all day!” *****
Democrats turn their backs again on Greater MN
To The Editor, Earlier this month at FarmFest, I was encouraged to hear of Governor Mark Dayton's newfound support for the repeal of the farm equipment repair tax during the special session for disaster relief on Sept. 9. Despite proposing it in his initial budget and signing it into law, the Governor escaped the confines of St. Paul and finally realized that the taxes, particularly the tax Democrats raised on farm equipment repairs, have real impacts on real Minnesota families. Special session provided an ideal opportunity to address the mistakes made by Democrats last session. Unfortunately, despite broad bipartisan consensus for repealing the farm equipment repair tax and bipartisan calls to repeal other business-tobusiness taxes, Democrats failed to compromise and turned their back on Minnesota farmers and Minnesota families who are paying more thanks to these burdensome new taxes. It's inexcusable that Democrats in full control of state government refuse to eliminate wasteful spending-needing just a fraction of a percent of the record-setting $38 billion dollar budget--to bring much-needed relief to Minnesota families and farmers, and stop the damage being done to Greater Minnesota. I hope we will revisit repealing these taxes when the legislature returns in 2014, if not sooner. Republicans will continue to stand up for hardworking taxpayers, and work with anyone willing to help fix the mistakes made by Democrats last session. Glenn Gruenhagen State Representative R-Glencoe
The Superintendent’s Note Pad
Students today have many more opportunities
By Jim Amsden SE Superintendent As we welcome back 1,241 students and 305 staff to the start of the 2013-14 school year it makes me reflect on how their experiences will be different from the students I welcomed into my first classroom in 1987. Certainly the emphasis on the basics of reading, writing, and arithmetic remain but the expectations, creation, and delivery of content have changed significantly. Over the course of the last 26 years, we have added more individualized instruction and broadened the scope of what is included as part of the curriculum and instructional day. Students today have so many more opportunities. Today's students have more information available to them at the "touch of a finger" than we did as children and young adults. As I think back to a good natured saying a colleague of mine used to say, "time to get going, the students are thirsting for knowledge and I am the faucet," I think of the abundance of "faucets" our students now have. They are going through their education at a time when they can access information instantly through their personal or school issued electronic devices, home computers, and the abundance of TV channels. The resources are also updated instantly to reflect changes and new discoveries. Information from these sources can be shared instantly in the classroom and globally. Today, anyone can become a publisher of content. This is far different than when the information was shared through classroom texts, books in our library, the encyclopedia, mimeographed or copied handouts or the more limited news outlets. Historically, the content from these sources was far more likely to be reviewed for accuracy and content. Now the information is available instantly, and in many cases, without the reviews that took place before publication or broadcast. This access to abundant information and ability to become an instant publisher of content comes with additional responsibilities for students, parents and teachers. We must teach children to "filter" through this information and determine fact, fiction and opinion. They must make decisions about the content, appropriateness and potential impact on others when they share or publish content. During this Information Age, taking the responsibility to help students address these challenges is one we must all share as a global community. I would like to share a simple acronym that I have seen some of our teachers use with their students when they talk about posting or publishing material. The acronym is THINK- Is it True? Is it Helpful? Is it Inspiring? Is it Necessary? Is it Kind? If you have questions, concerns, or comments regarding Sibley East Schools please feel free to contact me at the district office 507-9648224 or email jamsden@sibleyeast.k.mn.us.

September 6, 1923 Louis Kill, Editor Local nimrods are making preparations for the opening of the hunting season on Sunday, September 16th. Ducks are a scarce article in this section on account of the lack of feeding places, most of the sloughs and shallow lakes being dry. Chickens, however, are reported quite plentiful and they will receive the brunt of the attack on the opening day. The horse races at the Sibley County Fair were spirited events and the fact that Bud K., the Arlington horse, took part made them all the more interesting. Too bad that the Saturday race program had to be cancelled on account of the rain. Bud K. took third money in the Tri-County race. Quite a number of our people went to Glencoe Sunday evening and witnessed the Historic Pageant of the Big Woods. Those who saw it were well pleased with the performance. Some of the weekend specials at the Arlington Cash Bazaar included: Kelloggs Wheat Bran Flakes, 3 for 27c; Cream of Wheat, 3 for 69c; Swansdown Cake Flour, 3 for $1.05; Welch’s Grape Juice, 3 for 99c; Jello Powder, any flavor, 3 for 27c; Very Best Tapioca, 3 lbs. 39c; New Peaches, 3 lbs. 40c; Gum or Chocolate Bars, always, 3 for 10c. Sunday, August 30, when 12 relatives came to help him celebrate his 80th birthday anniversary. They attended the Methodist Church in a body, after which they enjoyed a family dinner at Vern’s Cafe. Open house was held from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m., when more than 80 friends and relatives called at the doctor ’s home to extend good wishes. A real estate transaction was closed last week through which Cyril Tracy of Green Isle became the owner of the Fred Schrupp home in Arlington. Mr. Tracy will dispose of his personal property at auction, after which he and Mrs. Tracy and his mother, Mrs. Agnes Tracy, will come to Arlington to reside. Ed Debner of Plato has purchased the Allie Bullert home in Arlington. Mr. Debner conducts a farm near Plato and will dispose of his personal property at an auction. The John Harens farm, better known as the Carl Poplau place, 2 miles northeast of Arlington, was sold to Arnie Narr of Jessenland Township. Mr. Harens, we understand, will continue farming if he can find another place to his liking. The old Theodore Fenske farm in Green Isle Township, which was owned by his sister, Augusta, of Arlington, was sold last week to owners of adjacent farms, Wilbur Plieseis and Melvin Dose, each taking 20 acres. Everyone around Green Isle got excited Wednesday afternoon when the fire whistle blew. It seems that a connection on the steam tank at McCarthy’s Hardware came loose, causing a flame which resulted in Art Koester calling out the fire department. No damage was done.

September 8, 1983 Val Kill, Editor In spite of rain delays that forced the Sunday games to go until 3 a.m., Monday morning, the Minnesota State Amateur Baseball Assn. State Tournament, held in Arlington and Hamburg, has been declared a success by its chairmen. Looking back on the tournament, Chairman Joe Thomes said that everything went very smoothly. “The tournament was very successful, and both towns got a lot of compliments from all the clubs involved on the ball parks and how the event was handled.” Over 15,000 fans paid attendance to the 38 games. The Green Isle Irish lost to St. Cloud in the state tournament quarter-finals. Green Isle advanced to play the St. Cloud team by beating LeCenter in a game played at Hamburg.

Ninety-six units of blood were collected during the blood drive at the Arlington Community Center on Tuesday, Aug. 27, according to Acting Coordinators Linda Sinell and Karan Pichelmann. Kay Schumacher, who is the regular coordinator, was unable to help at the drive due to an unexpected emergency. “Thanks to all who stepped up to the plate,” Schumacher said. “I really appreciate it and everything ran smoothly.” Don Nuessmeier received his 20-gallon pin. Lorraine Lieske netted a 13-gallon pin while Tara Swenson received a 12-gallon pin. Ellerd Mathwig netted an 11-gallon pin while Bob Thomes received a 10-gallon pin.

Matthew Meffert was a first-time donor. Locher Brothers, Green Isle, provided the beverages while ladies from Peace Lutheran Church, Arlington, donated and served the lunch. “Thanks to everyone who donated blood, helped with the set up at the hall or helped in any other way to have another great turnout,” Schumacher said. “It is all so important and a big help for each pint of blood collected. Donating blood is just one way we can help people in need.” The next blood drive in Arlington will be held on Tuesday, March 11, 2014. Gaylord will have a blood drive on Thursday, Dec. 26. People who were double red donors at the recent blood drive in Arlington will be eligible for that day.

Wolverines open season with 33-6 win over G-F-W
By Kurt Menk Editor The visiting Sibley East varsity football team opened its season with a 33-6 win over G-F-W in non-conference action at Winthrop on Friday night, Aug. 30. “It is better to be 1-0 and have a lot to work on than to be 0-1 and have a lot of things to work on,” said Sibley East head coach Chuck Hartman.   “We have a lot of things to get better at before we open MRC play this coming week. Our commitment to two-platoon football was also a big reason we wore G-F-W down in the second half.  You could see we were wearing them down.” The first Sibley East touchdown was sandwiched between a pair of G-F-W turnovers in the opening quarter. Senior Bo Swenson netted an interception at the 7:09 mark while sophomore Travis Schmidt grabbed an interception with 3:16 on the clock. In between the two interceptions, senior running back Erik Danielson hit paydirt on a 1-yard run. Quarterback Brody Rodning ran for the two-point conversion as the Wolverines grabbed an 8-0 lead with 3:30 left in the first quarter. The Wolverines missed an opportunity early in the second quarter when they fumbled the ball away on the GF-W 20-yard line. Sibley East, however, regrouped and scored its second touchdown late in the second quarter. The Wolverines marched about 50 yards before Danielson found the end zone on a 3-yard run. G-F-W intercepted a Rodning pass for the two-point conversion as Sibley East had to settle for a 14-0 lead with 1:45 remaining in the second quarter. The Wolverines came up with its third interception of the young season when senior Francisco Guzman picked off a pass with just 39 seconds left in the first half. Sibley East took advantage of another G-F-W miscue early in the third quarter. A snap from center sailed over the head of the Thunderbird punter and the Wolverines ended up with the ball on the G-F-W 31-yard line. The Wolverines, just one minute later, scored when Rodning hit paydirt on a 1yard plunge. The extra point kick by Guzman failed as Sibley East had to settle for a 20-0 lead. A roughing the punter penalty late in the third frame set up the next Sibley East touchdown early in the fourth quarter. The Wolverines marched down the field before sophomore Quin Riffenburg scored on a 3-yard run. A pass from Rodning for the two-point conversion fell incomplete, but not before Sibley East had grabbed a 260 lead with 10:52 left in the fourth quarter.. Sibley East had its sights set on another touchdown about six minutes later. The Wolverines marched down the field but fumbled the pigskin away inside the G-FW 10-yard line. G-F-W sophomore Gustavo Munoz scooped up the ball and raced 93 yards for a touchdown. A pass for the two-point conversion fell incomplete, but not before the Thunderbirds averted a shutout and drew within 26-6 with 4:20 left in the fourth quarter. The Wolverines scored their final touchdown on a short run by Swenson late in the contest. The extra point kick by Guzman failed as Sibley East had to settle for a 33-6 lead and eventual victory. The Wolverine offense compiled 391 total yards in the win. “We got 64 rushing attempts versus G-F-W,” said Hartman.  “In all we snapped the ball 40 times more than they did and when you do that you have a good chance to win.   I thought the line blocked good, not great, but good.” Danielson sparked the ground game with 26 carries for 155 yards and two touchdowns. Swenson contributed 10 attempts for 90 yards and one score while Riffenburg had 14 rushes for 51 yards and one touchdown. Senior Aaron Kapke recorded seven carries for 23 yards while Rodning added two rushes for eight yards and one score. Rodning also completed three of six passing attempts for 48 yards. Senior Nick Haupt caught one pass for 30 yards while Danielson had one reception for 13 yards. Riffenburg added one catch for five yards. The Wolverine defense, meanwhile, was led by a number of players. Senior Ben White recorded five solo tackles, one assisted tackle, one tackle for a loss and two quarterback sacks. Schmidt collected two solo tackles, two assisted tackles and one interception while Swenson netted three solo tackles, one tackle for a loss and one interception. Danielson had two solo tackles and three assisted tackles while junior Ben Frietag posted one solo tackle, one assisted tackle and one tackle for a loss. Guzman had one solo tackle and one interception while senior Austin Sadler added one solo tackle and two assisted tackles. “The defense got the shutout,” Hartman said.  “Yes, GF-W scored, but that was the offense's own fault. So as far as I am concerned, the defense got the shutout.   The guys played aggressive and did their jobs.  We were concerned about the home run ball and we took that away.” The Wolverines, 1-0 overall, will travel to Jordan in Minnesota River Conference action at 7 p.m. Friday, Sept. 6. “Jordan is much improved after knocking off Kimball 47-14,” said Hartman.  “They look big, tough and athletic.  They got hot last year and made it to state before losing to Rochester Lourdes and they have a lot of guys back from that team.  They seem to have settled on a run the ball mentality now.  It took them a few seasons after their old coach left to settle on an offense.  Now that they have they look really good.”

Hartmann and Lucas play in state baseball tourney
By Kurt Menk Editor A pair of former Arlington A’s baseball players participated in the recent Minnesota State Class C Amateur Baseball Tournament. Nate Hartmann was a designated hitter for the Belle Plaine Tigers who lost to Sartell 10-0 in the championship game at Maple Lake on Monday, Sept. 2. Joe Lucas was a shortstop and pitcher for the Jordan Brewers who lost to eventual state champion Sartell 1-0 in the semi-finals. Lucas collected eight hits and recorded one pitching win during the state classic. Andrew Deters, Sartell, was selected as the Most Valuable Player.

Irish blanked by Howard Lake 2-0 in state tournament
By Kurt Menk Editor The Green Isle Irish baseball team managed only three hits and was blanked by Howard Lake 2-0 during the third round of the Minnesota State Class C Amateur Baseball Tournament at Maple Lake on Saturday afternoon, Aug. 31. The loss eliminated the Irish from the 48-team state classic. The Lakers touched Green Isle starting pitcher Cody Hallahan for a single run in the bottom of the first inning. Howard Lake plated the run on a one-out single and a two-out double. Green Isle had its best opportunities to score in the top of the seventh inning. Brian Scherscligt and Nate Pilacinski started the frame with consecutive walks and moved to second and third base after a sacrifice bunt by Jackson Hallahan. Mike Dhaene followed with a short fly ball to rightcenter field. The Howard Lake first baseman cut off the ball to home plate, threw to third base and Scherschligt was eventually tagged out in a run down. The Lakers plated its second and final run off Cody Hallahan in the bottom of the eighth inning. Howard Lake scored the run on a one-out walk, a hit and run single and a suicide squeeze bunt. The Irish mounted a twoout rally in the top of the ninth frame, but were unable to score. Cody Hallahan, who recorded mound victories in the previous two state tournament games, pitched the entire game and was tagged with the loss. The right hander yielded two earned runs on five hits. He also struck out five, walked one and hit one batter. Scherschligt, who batted .750 in the state tournament, drew two walks and recorded a single in the loss. Pilacinski and Zach Herd also contributed one single apiece. The Irish, under the direction of co-managers Troy Breyer and Matt Breyer, conclude the season with a 26-10 record overall.
Irish Notes

World’s oldest known wild bear dies at 39
The world’s oldestknown wild bear has died of old age in northern Minnesota at the age of 39½. Known to DNR researchers as Bear No. 56, the female American black bear was first captured and radio-collared in July 1981 by DNR scientists during the first summer of a longterm research project on bear population ecology. The bear was 7 years old at the time and was accompanied by three female cubs. Bear No. 56 became a significant animal in the DNR research project. During a 32-year study period, she and her many offspring provided an almost uninterrupted record of reproduction, survival, movements and, eventually, senescence (aging), within a single matriarchal lineage. Data from this bear and her offspring have contributed significantly to the scientific literature on black bear biology. From 1981-1995, Bear No. 56 produced eight litters of cubs and successfully reared a remarkable 21 of the 22 cubs to 1½ years of age. In 1997, at age 23, she uncharacteristically lost two of her three cubs before weaning. In 1999, at age 25, she bore and raised her last cub. In 2001, when she was next expected to give birth, researchers found her healthy in her den and producing milk but without cubs. Bear No. 56 outlived by 19 years all of the 360 other radio-collared black bears that DNR researchers have followed since 1981. She also outlived any radio-collared bear of any species in the world. Only a very few individual study bears have been reported to reach age 30. The second-oldest was a brown bear that lived to 34. Researchers suspect Bear No. 56’s longevity probably is best attributed to a combination of factors, including the location of her home range in a forested area with few people or major roads; a more reticent nature than that of many bears, in terms of her avoidance of people; and luck. “Getting this information about this bear has taken a lot of effort. This really attests to the value of a longterm study with a large sample of bears,” said Dave Garshelis, DNR bear project leader. “Had we not studied so many bears, we likely would not have encountered this intriguing outlier. It was not just documenting that she lived to be so old, but understanding how she was able to live to be so much older than other bears that made this incredibly interesting and useful.” In the last few years of her life, Bear No. 56 began to visit some hunters’ baits, but hunters passed up shooting her, abiding by a DNR request that hunters not shoot collared bears. When last handled in March 2010, Bear No. 56 was a healthy weight but her teeth showed excessive wear and her eyes were clouding. Since then, her hearing and eyesight continued to deteriorate. Rarely observed through most of her life, Bear No. 56 had been observed by people during the past two summers with increasing frequency, foraging along trails and traveling dirt roads, likely because of the greater ease of travel than in the woods. Sometime in July, Bear No. 56 left her normal home range, as bears often do in late summer, to explore other areas for rich food sources on which to fatten for winter. After locating her radio signal several miles from her typical home area, DNR bear researcher Karen Noyce found her decomposed body in a secluded wooded location. From all indications, she died a quiet death, with no sign of struggle at the site and no evidence of broken bones or traumatic injury. “This is the first bear in our study to die of old age, and there is something satisfying in that,” said Noyce, who, along with Ken Soring, DNR’s current enforcement director, conducted the first capture of Bear No. 56 as a rookie biologist in 1981. “We knew she was getting feeble,” Noyce said. “It would have been sad to find her on the side of the road somewhere, hit by a car. After following her all these years, I’m glad to know she died peacefully. It was a fitting death for a fine old bear.”
Volleyball team sweeps MVL
By Kurt Menk Editor The visiting Sibley East varsity girls volleyball team swept Minnesota Valley Lutheran 3-0 during a nonconference match played in an air conditioned gym on Thursday night, Aug. 29. The Lady Wolverines defeated MVL 25-15, 25-18 and 25-18 respectively. Junior Karley Lind sparked a balanced attack with 16 of 16 serves, 23 setting assists and four service aces. Senior Megan Eckberg contributed seven kills and three blocks while junior Shelby Voight recorded 14 digs and four service aces. Sophomore Megan Krentz tallied eight kills while sophomore Alyssa Weber and junior Kelli Martens had six and five kills respectively. Sophomore Katie Tuchtenhagen dished out 13 set assists while sophomore McKayla Stumm added seven digs and two kills. “We showed some improvement from our first match, but we weren’t happy with the way we closed out each set,” said Sibley East head coach Chip Wolverton. “We had leads of 22-8 in set 1, 21-12 in set 2, and 20-10 in set 3 before coasting to the win. Being outscored 12-21 down the stretch isn’t something we want to happen very often. Luckily we had built enough of a lead to hold off their late charges.” Wolverton added, “It was nice to get everyone in the match. All 12 players are going to play key roles for us this season, so to get them all quality match time is important for us to prepare them for when they are called upon in a crucial situation. The Lady Wolverines, 2-0 overall, will travel to Tri-City United in MRC play at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 5. Sibley East will compete in the Mankato West Volleyball Tournament on Saturday, Sept. 7. In addition, the Lady Wolverines will travel to Glencoe-Silver Lake in nonconference action at 7:30 p.m. Monday, Sept. 9.

with our providers and our counties in a more effective and efficient manner.” Lind added that SCHA is looking at its care management and coordination system and what changes does it potentially need to make there. “We are looking at an area to pursue national accreditation that will be required for any health plan that will be offering products on the new exchange,” notes Lind. “So far it is not required by social programs, just for commercial products.” The CEO said SCHA will see an increase in enrollment after the fitst of year due to changes in eligibility requirements. She estimates additional 5-10,000 enrollments. “It is a significant chunk for a plan our size,” said Lind. “We will look at what resources we may need. The key piece is we need to be aware and work together to solve problems that may arise. We have to keep talking and verifying to know we are on the same page.” Lind is pleased with the progress made the last couple of years as an organization, which is in position to take a step forward. SCHA began operating in 2001, providing health care benefits for men, women and children of all ages. The joint effort of 12 Minnesota counties was designed to improve the way health care is received. South Country brings together both private and public resources to enable enrollees to receive services in a comprehensive and cohesive approach.
Roadside wildlife count to be released Sept. 9
The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) will release its annual roadside wildlife survey on Monday, Sept. 9. The report summarizes roadside counts of pheasants, gray (Hungarian) partridge, cottontail rabbits, white-tailed jackrabbits and other wildlife observed in the early morning hours during the first two weeks of August. The observations take place throughout the farmland region of Minnesota. Observers surveyed 171 25mile routes, 152 of which were located in the ringnecked pheasant range.

FSA Matters
By Lori Weckwerth Sibley FSA DCP/ACRE Program There are a number of you that still need to turn in lease agreements before your 2013 DCP contracts(s) can be approved. If you are missing lease agreements please attend to this as soon as possible to avoid a delay in processing your farm payment this October. If you have not enrolled yet it is not too late. We can enroll farms until September 16th. Please contact the Sibley county FSA Office if you have any questions. Record Keeping For Livestock Loss Due To Excessive Heat We have been experiencing extreme heat lately and there is a lot of concern with livestock health. The 2008 Farm Bill had a program called the Livestock Indemnity Program or LIP. This program helped compensate livestock producers with death loss during extreme weather conditions. The Farm Bill expired September 30, 2012 and was extended for one year until September 30, 2013. The problem is that the LIP program was not extended for 2013. It is possible that a new Farm Bill may include some sort of provisions for livestock producers who experienced death loss in 2013. So what are livestock producers to do if livestock parish during this extreme heat period? • Take pictures of deceased livestock. If your camera is capable of putting a date and time on the picture, be sure the date and time are accurate. This will be very important. Each picture needs to show the actual number of livestock that died. • Document the date and time of deceased livestock. Keep a running record of the number of livestock that died and the date. • Keep rendering receipts if you use this service. Be sure the receipts identify the type of livestock and the date. • Have a neighbor or someone that is not related to your operation verify the number of death loss and the date of death. If this program becomes available, they may need to sign a document verifying the death loss. Again, it is uncertain if a livestock compensation program will be available if a new Farm Bill is passed but history has taught us that the biggest reason these types of compensation applications for livestock deaths are denied is because of lack of documentation.

Reward offered in connection with killing of area reindeer
By Alyssa Schauer Silver Lake Leader Two weeks ago, Sandy Kendall and her husband, Bob, found their reindeer, Claus, with a bullet hole wound and lying in a pool of blood on their private farm near Glencoe. The couple is offering a $3,000 reward for a lead to the arrest and conviction of the person/persons responsible. “What happened is that someone came to our farm the night of Aug. 24 or early morning of Aug. 25 and shot our reindeer bull,” Sandy Kendall said. “We were just devastated because he was so gentle and so loving. He was a family pet. We’d cut an apple every day and hand-feed it to him. He was really, really, really special to us,” Kendall said. Kendall and her husband take their reindeer all over to events in the state — to hospitals, the lighting ceremony at Glencoe Regional Health Services, Silver Lake Winterfest and Arli-Dazzle in Arlington. “We bring them to Excelsior, Plymouth and many city, corporate and private events. They are the most gentle, loving creatures,” Kendall said. Kendall said Claus was found dead Sunday morning. “He probably thought someone was coming with an apple and went right up to the fence. He was so friendly,” she said. “You can’t see our farm from the road, so this is not a matter of somebody driving by and shooting him. This was deliberate,” Kendall said. She added: ”We are trying our best to do everything we can to find this person responsible for killing Claus. We are offering a $3,000 reward that was funded by people who want to help us find the people who did this cruel thing.” And Kendall pointed out that Claus was not the only reindeer of theirs found dead in August. “Interestingly enough, a week earlier, we found our reindeer, Jingles, dead. He wasn’t shot, but died from impact. His ribs were broken. We thought maybe another reindeer could have done that, but now we’re not so sure. I don’t know if there’s any connection, but with Claus getting shot, we are suspicious,” she said. Kendall said if anyone has any information, to please contact the McLeod County Sheriff’s Office at 320-8643134. “We desperately appreciate information and God bless anybody who can help us. We so much appreciate sharing our reindeer with the communities and are heartsick that somebody would do this to such a gentle being,” Kendall said. “The reindeer bring such happiness and joy to so many people. They are such loving and gentle creatures, and it’s just unthinkable that someone would do this outright act of cruelty to one of our beloved reindeer. We are just heartbroken,” she said.
Drought is back again
The drought is back again, especially in the southern half of the state, thanks to mostly dry weather over the past two months, according to the KNUJ Radio website. South-central Minnesota is currently four to six inches below normal when it comes to rainfall. National Weather Service Meteorologist Mike Griesinger said they fully expect the drought conditions to expand unless more rain comes soon. He said that the latest report puts 55 percent of Minnesota’s landscape in moderate drought, a significant increase from the previous week.

Arlington VFW Auxiliary to meet on Sept. 9
The Arlington VFW Ladies Auxiliary Post #6031 was called to order by President Carol Dammann on Monday, Aug. 12, according to Secretary Ramona Bade. The flag pledge and roll call were given with 10 members present. After the secretary and treasurer reports were read and accepted, the bulletins were read. Treasurer Mary Ann Marquardt reported that the organization grossed $14 more than last year at the food stand. Everyone felt that the shifts worked well and the weather was great. This year the group sold individual cartons of milk rather than pouring it from a bigger carton. Customers seemed to like it that way. Under old business, the group decided not to take part in the calendar raffle this year. The group also received a request to make a basket for the Baskets for Ways and Means. The group decided to send $25 rather than make a basket. Janet Rowe showed the group the new apparel and jewelry which will be sold at the fall conference. This is a fundraiser for Cancer Aid and Research and is in the form of a red rose ear rings, necklace and pin along with a white shirt adorned with a red rose. The door prize was won by Marge Kloeckl. A delicious lunch was served by Carol Dammann. The group will meet at the Veterans Building at 7:30 p.m. Monday, Sept. 9.
