Welcome, I hope you find this edi-
tion of the Glencoe Guide a great re-
source to everything our community
has to offer.
If you are a resident, you already
know much that Glencoe has to
offer. If you are new to our commu-
nity or just visiting there are many
businesses and opportunities for
you.
Each year as I write this welcome
and reflect on what has happened in
the preceding year I am amazed at
the wealth of activity.
Glencoe has many successful busi-
nesses providing health care, retail
and professional services. The Glen-
coe-Silver Lake School District pro-
vides a great education to the youth
of the community and many sur-
rounding communities. We enjoy watching stu-
dent athletes and musicians in sporting events and
concerts.
We are also the county seat for McLeod County.
When one combines all these public and private
resources, we have a great employ-
ment base.
The Glencoe City Center and Li-
brary are housed in a refurbished
school building built in the 1930s. It
has proven to be a wise investment
for the community. It is used for
wedding receptions, business meet-
ings, entertainment, and a host of
other functions throughout the year.
What a great example of the com-
munity working together toward a
goal.
Our city parks are well maintained
and used. Oak Leaf Park is our pre-
mier park with the Aquatic Center
the main attraction in the summer.
I hope you can see I am proud of
this community we call home. Glen-
coe is a great place to live, work,
and play.
My wife and I moved to Glencoe in 1985. It has
been a great place to raise a family. I am also hon-
ored to serve as the Mayor.

Some city ordinances to be aware of ...
The following are some of the more applicable city ordinances that people need to be aware of in Glencoe:
— Building permits are required in Glencoe for virtually any type of construction/remodeling project. Permit forms
can be obtained through city hall.
— The animal control ordinances state that all dogs and cats shall wear a collar and have an identification tag
firmly affixed thereto indicating the dog’s owner by name, address and phone number. No person shall keep in any
one household more than two dogs and/or two cats over the age of six months not to exceed a total of four, without
a valid kennel license issued by the city.
— The city’s blight ordinance does not permit anything that may cause a blighting factor within the community.

Glencoe City Center
When the Glencoe City Center opened in 2010, it
maintained the historic feel of the former high
school building built in 1934. The hallways are
lined with historic photos and displays. The City
Center also includes city offices, the Glencoe Area
Chamber of Commerce office, the public library as
well as rooms for other community activities. This
view is of the second-floor library.
www.glencoenews.com 7
The Glencoe City Center is now
completing its third year of operation.
Even though the facility, opened in
2010, and it is no longer “new,” people
still have the “wow factor” when they
see it for the first time.
As one reunion attendee remarked
after a tour of the new facility: “What
a beautiful thing was done by saving
that building from destruction!”
That is a common reaction from for-
mer Glencoe High School graduates
returning for class reunions and others
who return to the community and take
tours of the new City Center. They are
often amazed at the old high school’s
new lease on life.
The main hallways and staircases
look similar to when the school build-
ing was built in 1932. Much of the old
feel of the facility has been retained,
while much more has been upgraded
and modernized.
The historical theme permeates the
facility with various displays and old
photographs dotting the hallways and
filling display cases.
“The first year was a learning expe-
rience,” said City Administrator Mark
Larson. And midway through the sec-
ond year, Hannah Huttner-Hallahan
took over as events coordinator. “The
transition went off smoothly,” Larson
said.
Hallahan handles the City Center
marketing “and has just been tremen-
dous,” Larson added.
There is something going on all the
time,” Larson said, including 23 wed-
dings year. “There has been a tremen-
dous amount of activities the first six
months of this year. There are different
things going on in every room in the
building,” Larson added.
*****
So what is in the Glencoe City Cen-
ter?
City hall now fills the space for-
merly occupied by school administra-
tive staff. Old classrooms are now
filled with the chamber of commerce
office, room for Glencoe Township
meetings and the Buffalo Creek Water-
shed District, the senior center and the
Glencoe Historic Preservation Society.
Perhaps the biggest transformation
has been on the second floor where the
Glencoe Public Library is now located.
The expansive library is well used.
This summer, the library space has
expanded even further with the reno-
vation of a new “library activity
room,” thanks to the donations from
the Geraldine Tews estate and Friends
of the Glencoe Library.
Most of the foot traffic coming in
and out of the City Center during the
first two years has involved library pa-
trons, Larson said.
The key has been consistent library
hours, Larson said, and he predicted
that the new library has twice the ac-
tivity and number of cardholders than
the old library on 13th Street and
Greeley Avenue. It also is larger, tak-
ing up most of the second floor of the
City Center.
Daily library visits are up, and a lot
of that is in the technology area, Lar-
son said. The new library more than
doubled the number of computer sta-
tions in its move to the new City Cen-
ter.
The children’s reading center and
children’s library events “attracts an
amazing amount of traffic,” Larson
said.
It seems the old school building con-
tinues to be a magnet for children.
The latest room in the City Center to
open up is the multi-purpose meeting
room in the basement, which was the
former school lunch room.
Larson said the local 4-H group uses
the room now, and attracts about 70
people per meeting as well as use by
the local Boy Scout troop.
“We wanted to offer a multi-use
room at little or no cost,” he said. In
exchange, the 4-Hers and Boy Scouts
help at events and groundskeeping
around the City Center.
The other major City Center trans-
formation was the former school audi-
torium and gymnasium into the grand
ballroom, which can be split into two
large rooms. The ballroom has hosted

a variety of events in its first few
years.
The north portion of the ballroom is
more for large group conferences, re-
tirement parties or anniversary events,
while the south ballroom is more de-
signed for concerts and performing
arts events with its balcony seating.
The entire ballroom is available for
large-group gatherings as well. The
seating capacity is up to 600.
The City Center also has other pub-
lic meeting spaces, like the west con-
ference room and its round table
layout and the east conference room
with its more seminar-style layout.
The east meeting room also has ac-
cess to a kitchen and adjoins the senior
center located on the east side of the
City Center. The well-used senior cen-
ter room also has access to the kitchen
area.
After a slow start during the first
year, there also was a bigger push for
more city-sponsored events the second
year, Larson said.
“We had a lot of initial one-time
events the first year,” Larson said, but
there have been some community part-
ners who have held multiple events at
the Event Center. Hopefully, more will
do the same.
Over the past year, the ballroom has
hosted a number of events from the
local musical production of “Nun-
sense” to the Grammy award winning
Okee Dokee Brothers to the award
winning Monroe Crossing bluegrass
band.
*****
The facility now has two full-time
employees —Hallahan and Brad Eg-
gersgluess. Dan Gildea is the boiler
operator, while Erin McNellis is a
part-time Event Center staff member.
Larson said the facility can be uti-
lized more. “A lot of people don’t
know about us yet.” He said more ex-
posure to more events will get that
word out.
That remains the goal of the fourth
year of operations. “We’re very capa-
ble and very flexible,” Larson said of
the City Center staff and offerings.
There are multiple local events and
celebrations scheduled both public and
private for the upcoming year.
City Center
Continued from page 7
The event center is located in the
former school gymnasium and audi-
torium. The first floor auditorium
was removed and a concrete floor
poured to create a level floor in the
new event center.
The original light fixtures were
restored and been reinstalled in the
event center.
The new windows were similar to
the original windows in the facility,
and provide natural light throughout
the building.
The facility is handicapped acces-
sible with at-grade entrances at the
east and west parking lots.
Hallahan said reservations can be

By Jackee Fountain
Head Librarian
Historically, libraries have been
centered on bringing the world to
members through the collections.
Technology has also taken a vital role
for libraries in serving the public.
Programs provide opportunities for
library users to receive information,
continue education, read for enjoy-
ment, and stay connected to the
world. The Glencoe
Public Library contin-
ues to integrate all
three; collections, tech-
nology and programs to
service all people
within the community.
The collections of the
Glencoe Library con-
tinue to increase by ad-
ditions of more fiction
and non-fiction books,
audiobooks, large print
books, and DVDs.
Providing current nov-
els, informational non-
fiction books,
periodicals, and audio-
books is an ongoing
challenge at the library.
The Glencoe Library
is a branch member of
the Pioneerland Library
System which provides
patrons with an in-
creased number of col-
lections.
The Glencoe Library
strives to use and pro-
vide technology. There
are 15 public computers, as well as
free Wi-Fi available at the library.
Electronic books, E-Books using Pio-
neerland’s Overdrive, continue to be
popular.
Recently added is the availability
of electronic magazines using ZINIO.
The E-book and E-magazine collec-
tions are provided by Pioneerland.
Patrons need a Pioneerland Library
System card and an electronic device
such as a Kindle, Nook, iPad or smart
phone to use these technological
services. Information and procedure
handouts are available at the library.
Classes are held occasionally to help
patrons with this new way to enjoy
reading.
The “NovelList,” Glencoe Li-
brary’s electronic newsletter, is avail-
able to anyone. Patrons may sign up
by giving a librarian their e-mail ad-
dress to enjoy reading this electronic
avenue for Glencoe Library events,
program information, and new up-
coming books.
The Glencoe Library continues to
change and provide additional pro-
grams for the community.
Currently, patrons can choose from
the Mystery and Luncheon Book
Clubs, Adult Winter Reading Pro-
gram, Senior Surf computer classes
and senior workshops.
Children’s programs include: the
Summer Reading Program, 1,000
Books Before Kindergarten for 0 to 5
years, Saturday Story Times, Spring
Tea Party, and the newly formed
LEGO Club.
The LEGO Club is for ages 6 and
older. Each session the attendees are
given a mission to build and create
using only LEGOs, then the
group talks and shares designs.
The local LEGO lovers meet for
LEGO Club the first Tuesday of
each month. Registration is re-
quired; contact a librarian.
Library based celebrations are
held at the Glencoe Library in-
cluding Teen Tech Week in
March, National Book Week in
April, and Children’s Book
Week in May. Each week-long
celebration contains highlighted
books, give-away prizes, book-
marks, and the opportunity to
visit the library for special activ-
ities.
The main focus of the Glen-
coe Library is people; how to
provide services, continue the
printed word and electronic
books, technology, provide
space for patrons’ various needs,
and program opportunities.
To keep up with the current
Glencoe Library programs
and services please “LIKE” us
on Facebook and visit the
Glencoe Library’s website at
www.Glencoe
PublicLibrary.webs.com.
Library strives to improve its services
Story time at the public library is a popular activity at the
Glencoe Library as Jackee Fountain, head librarian reads
a book.

Residents of Glencoe and the sur-
rounding area have several options
for their recreational activities
within the city limits.
Oak Leaf Park
Located on the south side of town
(across U.S. Highway 212), Oak
Leaf Park offers a wide assortment
of fun and games.
At the center is an outdoor Aquat-
ics Center, which opened in June
2000. The swimming pool features a
flume slide, diving board and kiddie
pool. It has added new pool “toys”
each year.
But Oak Leaf Park offers more.
Men’s slow-pitch, co-ed, women’s
and church softball leagues keep the
park’s two lighted softball fields
busy most of the summer.
The park sports one of the state’s
finer amateur baseball parks in
Vollmer Field. It is the home of the
1998 state champion Glencoe Brew-
ers town team — plus Legion, VFW
and youth teams.
Vollmer Field has been selected
three times as host site for the Min-
nesota State Amateur Baseball Tour-
nament, the lastest came in 2011.
The baseball field complex also in-
cludes a cage for batting practice, a
new concession stand and grand-
stand.
Two sand volleyball courts, a
Frisbee golf course, basketball court,
horseshoe pits, large playground
area and a wildlife sanctuary are
other featured attractions at Glen-
coe’s most popular city park. Five
picnic shelters are available to rent,
including the newly constructed
main shelter in the center of the
park.
Oak Leaf Park also offers a walk-
ing/biking trail extending south to
Hennepin Avenue and west to 1st
Street. The park also includes a fish-
ing pond near Buffalo Creek, with a
walking trail around the pond
wildlife sanctuary.
Oscar Olson Park
Another key recreational location
in Glencoe is Oscar Olson Sunrise
Park, located in the northeast corner
of town. Oscar Olson Park features
soccer fields, a skateboard park and
a shelter house with bathrooms.
Oscar Olson Park is just one block
from Glencoe-Silver Lake High
School.
Panther Field House
The Panther Field House is at-
tached to the high school building.
Adjacent to the north is the school
district’s outdoor complex for sports
and physical education classes.
The field house has two full-
sized, refurbished basketball courts,
a gymnastics gym, and weight-
room. The basketball courts double
as tennis and volleyball courts with
easily-erectable nets available.
The fitness area offers cardiovas-
cular machines, as well as an ever-
growing selection of free weights. A
1/8-mile, three-lane walking/running
track, which overlooks the gymna-
sium, is one of the more popular fea-
tures.
The field house offers volleyball
leagues, a batting cage and numer-
ous other activities organized by
Glencoe-Silver Lake Community
Education, which has offices located
within the field house.
The high school’s indoor pool is
just a short walk down a hallway
from the field house and also is open
to the public.
Both the field house and high
school have locker rooms available.
GSL sports complex
North of the field house and high
school are some of the newer recre-
ational facilities in Glencoe.
Stevens Seminary Stadium is the
showpiece of the complex. The sta-
dium became the new home of Glen-
coe-Silver Lake football games in
September 2005. The stadium also
offers an all-weather track, with ad-
jacent areas for field events. South
of the stadium are eight state-of-the-
art tennis courts. The tennis courts,
finished in 1999, are open to the
public.
Still being developed are separate
fields for baseball (2), softball (4)
and soccer.
Glencoe Country Club
The Glencoe Country Club pro-
vides area residents with an 18-hole
golf course flowing through 106
acres of picturesque terrain in the
southeast corner of Glencoe.
The course offers uninterrupted
play, a PGA golf professional, a
driving range, putting green, group
and individual lessons, pro shop and
banquet facilities.
Outdoor skating rink
An ice rink at the end of Greeley
Avenue opened in the winter of
2000-01. The complex includes a
pleasure ice rink, hockey rink,
warming house and sledding hill.
The area is lit and barriers are in
place to protect the sledders.
Lots of alternatives for enjoying Glencoe
The newest addition to the Glencoe Park system is the main
shelter house at Oak Leaf Park that was built last spring and
opened in time for Glencoe Days in June.

BMX
track
In July 2008, Buffalo
Creek BMX played host
to the first points races on
its new track — which is
full of bumps, banks and
tricky turns.
Since then, the local
track has been host to re-
gional competitions
Located in Sterner Park,
at 1017 9th St., Glencoe,
the track is used for offi-
cial BMX events, usually
on Tuesday evenings dur-
ing the season.
It also is an attractive
spot for youngsters testing
out their cycling skills.
The track has grown
each year as a major sum-
mer draw to Glencoe.

The Glencoe-Silver Lake Public
School District proudly serves pre-
school-aged children all the way to
the adult populations of Biscay,
Brownton, Glencoe, New Auburn,
Plato and Silver Lake.
Consolidated in 1996 from the for-
mer Silver Lake and Glencoe School
Districts, and then again with the
McLeod West School District in
2009, Glencoe-Silver Lake School
District 2859 provides a quality array
of academic, co-curricular, extracur-
ricular, social, recreational, and com-
munity education programs and
services to 1,700 students in grades P-
K-12.
The district’s grade levels are lo-
cated in four teaching/learning facili-
ties. Helen Baker Elementary School
(Glencoe) houses the district’s K-2
programs/grades, while Lakeside Ele-
mentary School (Silver Lake) serves
all district students in grades 3-6. Lin-
coln Junior High School (Glencoe),
grade 7-8 and pre-K youngsters, and
Glencoe-Silver Lake High School
(Glencoe), grade 9-12 students, are
located on a common site – along
with the multi-purpose Panther Field
House and outdoor athletic complex –
in northeast Glencoe.
In January 2014, a new, Early
Childhood Learning Center will open.
The facility will be connected to our
Lincoln Junior High and will house
all of our Early Childhood Family Ed-
ucation, Early Childhood Special Ed-
ucation, and School Readiness stu-
dents.
The school district is governed by a
six-member School Board, which
meets monthly (typically on the sec-
ond Monday) in the media center at
Glencoe-Silver Lake High School at
1825 16th Street East, Glencoe.
School Board meetings are web
streamed via the Internet at
www.gsl.k12.mn.us. Christopher
Sonju is Glencoe-Silver Lake School
District’s Superintendent of Schools.
Glencoe-Silver Lake School Dis-
trict’s teaching, specialist, support,
and administrative staffs are dedi-
cated to providing quality programs
and services to the communities’ pre-
school, school-aged, and adult popu-
lations. Frequent involvement in staff
in-service training and curriculum de-
velopment insures the school district’s
staff employs “best instructional prac-
tices” and “current curricular (sub-
ject) content.”
Providing instructional program
leadership in the school district are
Bill Butler, elementary school princi-
pal/child study coordinator; Paul
Sparby, GSL High School/Lincoln
Junior High School principal; Dan
Svoboda, K-12 assistant principal;
Michelle Wang, elementary assistant
principal; Kay Wilson, activities di-
rector; Jan Mackenthun, director of
Early Childhood/Family Education
and Learning Readiness; Jeff Jenson,
Plenty of opportunities at GSL
The 2013 state champion Knowledge Bowl team at GSL included Patrick
Fehrenbach, Mark Broderius, Joe Fehrenbach, Ethan Bass and Chandler Swift.
In the back are coach Vicky Harris and assistant coach Clare Nolan.

Participation is great
in the fine arts activi-
ties, including the an-
nual fall musical and
spring plays at GSL.
Last fall’s musical
was “Annie” that in-
cluded not only high
school actors and
musicians, but ele-
mentary students as
well. The spring play
was “Around the
World in 8 Plays.”
The one-act play was
“Medea.”

Glencoe-Silver Lake School Dis-
trict 2859 provides an appealing array
of program and service features, in-
cluding the availability of school-aged
childcare; learning readiness and early
childhood/family education pro-
gramming; all day/every day
kindergarten; striving for lower
class sizes, and an excellent
number of programs and serv-
ices at all organizational levels.
Course offerings at GSL High
School are found in 12 subject
matter disciplines including
agricultural education, art, busi-
ness, English, family and con-
sumer science, industrial
technology, mathematics,
music, physical education/
health, science; social studies,
and world languages. Qualify-
ing students at the high school
level may participate in the
“College in the Classroom”
courses which offer dual (both
high school and college/univer-
sity) credit and/or Advanced
Placement Classes (AP
Classes). New to the district this
fall is Project Lead the Way
(PLTW), a nationally-renowned
Science, Technology, Engineer-
ing, and Mathematics (STEM)
education curriculum. In many
cases, students have the op-
portunity to earn college
credit through their PLTW
courses.
The district also offers students a
progressive technology program,
which has recently incorporated iPads
into the elementary curriculum and
for all teaching staff. Specialty pro-
grams are offered at Glencoe-Silver
Lake to address special circum-
stances, needs, and interests of stu-
dents.
The district operates a comprehen-
sive, districtwide special education
program for students with a range of
handicapping conditions, and a mi-
grant summer school program to ad-
dress the limited English proficiency
of select youngsters. Other programs
offered are: summer school, class-
room drivers’ education; adult recre-
ation offerings, enrichment and train-
ing programs; and much more. Check
the GSL website at
www.gsl.k12.mn.us for additional in-
formation.
Extracurricular and co-curricular
programs and events, as well as a
broad range of academic, club, and
leadership competitions, enhance the
physical, intellectual, and social de-
velopment of the school district’s stu-
dents and provide abundant thrills for
loyal patrons, parents, staff, and stu-
dents. The school district’s fine arts
program (vocal and instrumental
music, art, and dramatics) continue to
be exemplary. Every play, concert, or
show has people awed once again at
the talent level of GSL students.
This past year, GSL was repre-
sented at state in a variety of competi-
tions capping off another successful
year with a state championship for our
Knowledge Bowl Team.
GSL was also well represented by
students at the state Science Fair, na-
tional BPA (Business Professionals of
America) competition, state wrestling,
where GSL/LP wrestler Mitch
Hartwig won the state championship;
tennis, track and trap shooting, where
GSL took second place in the novice
division; FIRST Robotics, and in the
Hennepin Theatre Trust SpotLight
program.
The school district owns and oper-
ates the Panther Field House, a multi-
purpose facility which offers resident
membership in/access to an excellent
array of fitness equipment, walking
track, basketball courts,
racquetball court,
weightlifting, and other
opportunities. It is an ex-
cellent place where both
school and community
benefit.
The school district con-
tinually strives to improve
facilities in order to en-
hance student learning op-
portunities. Workers have
been busy this summer
with the construction of
the Early Childhood
Learning Center at Lincoln
Junior High School and
the remodeling of the old
Lincoln kitchen area as
well as the old locker
room/restrooms. The
kitchen area will become a
multi-purpose conference
room, serve as a computer
room and a parent and
staff meeting area.
The old locker rooms/re-
strooms will be updated
and remodeled to be hand-
icapped accessible and to
be more of a public acces-
sible restroom. In addition,
improvements are being
made to the outdoor athletic complex
and the new garage at the high school
is being completed.
The school district places a high
value on good citizenship and respect
by its students in our schools and in
our communities. All students are ex-
pected to represent their school, com-
munity, and family in a positive
manner.
Our students are the most important
aspect of our school, and we are fortu-
nate to have great students and fami-
lies. We are also very thankful to have
such a supportive school community.
The GSL school system is a great
place to learn, and we welcome the
opportunity to become even better.

Amateur baseball
a proud tradition in
area’s town teams
Brewers —Blue Jays —Bruins
Photos by Josh Randt and Lori Copler
Come summertime in Glencoe and
neighbors Plato (to the east) and Brownton
(to the west), the boys of the local town
teams keep busy pitching balls and strikes,
fielding grounders and fly balls, and swat-
ting an occasional home run.
Indeed, the Glencoe Brewers, Plato Blue
Jays and Brownton Bruins have proud tra-
ditions in amateur baseball — better
known as town ball. All three are members
of the Crow River Valley League.
The Brewers — whose home is pictur-
esque Vollmer Field — have made seven
state tournament appearances since 1987,
including 1998 when they were Class C
state champions. Plato’s team — which
plays its home games at Blue Jay Stadium
— has participated in 10 state tournaments
since 1977, winning it all in 1996 and
2007. Brownton, at home in Barney Tad-
sen Field, has sent six teams to state tour-
naments and six men to the Minnesota
Baseball Hall of Fame. (Glencoe also
boasts of two hall members.)
Glencoe and Brownton were co-hosts
for the 2011 state tournament — some-
thing they had previously done in the sum-
mer of 1996.
Bruins’ shorstop Bryce Lindeman scoops up a
grounder against Hamburg.
Brody Bratsch lays down a bunt for the Glencoe
Brewers against the New Germany Dutchmen.

Grand Meadows Senior
Living of Glencoe offers
the opportunity to love
where you live with senior
living at its finest!
Grand Meadows opened
in August of 2009 and pro-
vides seniors living in
Glencoe and the surround-
ing communities, numerous
options to age in place.
Grand Meadows is a sen-
ior living facility that offers
independent living, assisted
living, and enhanced mem-
ory care services. Inde-
pendent living is a
wonderful option for sen-
iors that want an assort-
ment of activities,
socialization and compan-
ionship.
Those who are seeking
independent living can
relax and not have to worry
about snow removal, mow-
ing lawn, association dues
or keeping up with mainte-
nance. At Grand Meadows
this is all done for you.
Grand Meadows has un-
furnished one- or two-bed-
room apartments ranging
from 599 square feet to 959
square feet. Each apart-
ment comes with a full
kitchen, laundry room and
one or two bathrooms. All
of the apartments are
leased on a 30-day basis;
there is no lock-in contract.
There are many different
styles of apartments to
choose from. Some have
French doors, balconies,
views of the city, while
others offer a view of farm-
land.
Grand Meadows offers
many other amenities for
tenants to enjoy, such as: a
great room, community
lounge, coffee shop, game
room, garages, storage fa-
cilities, exercise room,
beautiful sitting areas, a
pond and walking paths
around the building to
name a few.
Grand Meadows can ac-
commodate seniors with
medical needs, through our
assisted living services.
Assisted living provides
cares and is not related to
any certain apartment size
or style. The services of-
fered can include house-
keeping, medication
management, assistance
with dressing, grooming,
escorts, etc.
One of the specialty
services Grand Meadows
offers is Enhanced Memory
Care, which is for those
that have dementia and
Alzheimer’s disease. This
level of care provides spe-
cialized assistance with the
tenant’s emotional, physi-
cal, intellectual, spiritual
and cognitive areas.
In addition, Grand Mead-
ows has apartments avail-
able for couples who would
like to stay living together,
even though they may have
different needs.
Grand Meadows has staff
on duty 24-hours a day,
seven days a week to help
with tenants’ needs.
The leadership team con-
sists of the executive direc-
tor, registered nurse,
licensed practical nurses,
office manager, community
lifestyle coordinator, di-
etary manager, mainte-
nance manager and a
chaplain.
The executive director
leads the team to strive for
excellence in all areas. The
registered nurse is on-call
24/7 to assist in handling
our tenants’ medical ques-
tions and cares. The li-
censed practical nurses
work daily to ensure safety,
trust and accountability in
our services.
The office manager
works with our finances
and is detailed, organized
and ensures prompt serv-
ice. The community
lifestyle coordinator pro-
motes independence and
vitality of life through a va-
riety of activities.
Grand Meadows is able
to promote a healthy bal-
ance of activities for ten-
ants’ emotional, physical,
intellectual, spiritual and
cognitive needs.
Tenants are able to go on
outings in the community,
as well as out of town, with
Grand Meadows’ 13-pas-
senger bus.
The dietary manager
strives for balanced nutri-
tion, while offering the lux-
ury of choices. Three
home-cooked meals are
served daily, which also in-
cludes a salad bar and
dessert.
Last but not least, the
maintenance manager is
available to assist tenants
with any issues in their
apartments, as well as over-
seeing the general mainte-
nance and upkeep of the
building as a whole.
The chaplain oversees
twice monthly worship
services and assists with
the spiritual needs of ten-
ants.
Grand Meadows has
many wonderful attributes
within a beautiful building,
however, staff is most
proud of the services they
provide to the wonderful
tenants that live here and
make up the Grand Mead-
ows’ community.
Senior living at Grand Meadows
Grand Meadows Senior Living not only provides options for Glencoe area seniors
citizens, it also provides employment opportunities as well.

Glencoe Regional Health Services
(GRHS) has been part of the local
landscape for more than 70 years. As
the region has grown, so have the fa-
cilities and services.
GRHS is a primary care health sys-
tem, offering patients quality, conven-
ience and personal care - all within a
few miles of home. Top-notch staff,
modern medical technology, excellent
facilities and a wide array of medical
resources make GRHS the region's
best choice for lifelong care. GRHS
offers comprehensive services, in-
cluding obstetrics/gynecology, mid-
wifery, medical and surgical care,
intensive coronary care, cardiac reha-
bilitation, physical therapy, respira-
tory therapy, occupational therapy,
diabetes counseling and health educa-
tion.
The campus in Glencoe features:
• GRHS’ largest clinic.
• An inpatient hospital.
• Outpatient surgery facilities.
• A Level III trauma-designated
emergency department, staffed 24
hours/day, 7 days/week.
• A 110-bed long-term care facility
(skilled nursing home).
• A 40-unit independent senior
housing complex, Orchard Estates.
In addition, there are clinics in the
communities of Lester Prairie and
Stewart.
The medical staff includes: Obstet-
rics/gynecology specialist John Mark
Johnson, DO, FACOOG; family med-
icine specialists William Hammes,
MD, Kristine Knudten, MD, Amanda
Leino, MD, Laura Olson, MD, Bryan
Petersen, MD, John Tieben, MD,
Douglas Wagoner, MD and Christa
Waymire, MD; internal medicine spe-
cialist Bryan Fritsch, DO; general sur-
geons John Bergseng, DO, FACOS,
and Chad Robbins, DO; FACOS; po-
diatrist Amie Scantlin, DPM, MS,
FACFAS; certified nurse midwives
Michelle Quale, CNM, FNP-BC and
Laurel McKeever, CNM; physician
assistants Curtis Forst, MPA-C, and
Kari Knodel Vettel, MPAS-PAC. The
Emergency Department at GRHS is
staffed by emergency medicine spe-
cialists James Jessen, MD, and Zia
Siddiqui, MD.
The Glencoe clinic offers appoint-
ments on Saturday mornings and ex-
tended hours, until 7 p.m., on
Mondays and Thursdays. The ap-
pointment scheduling line is open
Monday through Friday, from 7 a.m.
to 5:30 p.m. so appointments can be
made with any provider at any clinic
location. Interpreters are on staff to
provide confidential assistance to
Spanish-speaking patients. For pa-
tients who use American Sign Lan-
guage, interpreters are available
through a web-based video service.
The GRHS ambulance service has
received Advanced Life Support certi-
fication through the state of Min-
nesota. GRHS’ Level III Trauma Cen-
ter designation from the Minnesota
State Trauma Advisory Committee
was renewed through 2015.
The diabetes education program at
GRHS, under the direction of certi-
fied diabetes educators, is recognized
by the American Diabetes Association
for providing quality education.
GRHS also features a state-of-the-
art birth center, Best Beginnings. Best
Beginnings blends modern amenities
and obstetrical technology with per-
sonal care. The mother can labor, de-
liver and recover all in one room.
Central fetal monitoring equipment
allows the patient’s health care
provider and nursing staff to monitor
the mother’s labor process from any
computer in the birth center, and even
from the provider’s home. Private
whirlpool tubs help her relax during
labor. New in 2013 is an option for a
pregnant woman to choose a water
birth, if appropriate. A family room
provides a cozy space for waiting.
The outpatient clinic at Glencoe
Regional Health Services brings
metro area physician specialists to
Glencoe five days a week. The con-
sulting staff includes specialists in au-
diology, low back and neck care,
nephrology, neurology, orthopedics,
ophthalmology, optometry, otolaryn-
gology (ENT), podiatry, and urology.
GRHS offers top-notch care

Cardiologists from Minneapolis Heart
Institute see patients at the Glencoe
clinic on a regular basis.
GRHS’ medical imaging depart-
ment includes state-of-the-art digital
equipment as well as expanded ultra-
sound, fluoroscopy, CT and mam-
mography areas. A digital system
which stores the digital images and
allows care providers and radiologists
to query and retrieve the images elec-
tronically has been implemented. In-
house nuclear medicine services are
provided in the Glencoe clinic. GRHS
has recently expanded its vascular ul-
trasound services.
The long-term care facility at Glen-
coe Regional Health Services is a
Medicare-certified skilled nursing fa-
cility for people whose health con-
cerns prevent them from living
independently. Dedicated staff mem-
bers work with families and residents
to provide the very best quality of life
for each individual, including 24-hour
nursing care.
Staff is careful to preserve each res-
ident’s dignity, affording people the
respect and personal care they de-
serve. The nursing home offers respite
care and social services. A progres-
sive rehabilitation program for long
term residents and short term stay pa-
tients was initiated this year. They
provide physical therapy sessions for
residents and patients with strokes,
joint replacement, Parkinson’s and
other diseases and injuries.
The activities department in long-
term care recently launched a new
program for residents called Mneme
(pronounced “nemma”) Therapy.
Mneme Therapy is a whole-brain
therapy that uses everyday pleasures,
like singing, movement, painting, sto-
rytelling and praise in a unique com-
bination that can stimulate changes in
the brain. It has been used to help
stroke patients, and people with
autism, dementia and related condi-
tions to become more communicative
and engaged with the world around
them.
GRHS LTC residents, with guid-
ance from a trained Mneme therapist,
create paintings during one-on-one
sessions. At the end of the session the
resident names the painting and it is
displayed in the atrium.
In 2013, the GRHS Foundation pur-
chased flat screen TVs for each resi-
dents’ room using funds donated by
the late Geraldine Tews. Tews was a
long-term care resident who left a be-
quest to the Foundation with instruc-
tions that it be used to benefit the
community.
GRHS long-term care has consis-
tently received an overall rating of
four or five stars from Medicare’s
Nursing Home Compare program.
GRHS is transitioning to a more ad-
vanced electronic medical record
(EMR) system called Excellian. It is a
software product from EPIC that is
used by many health care organiza-
tions in the Twin Cities and greater
Minnesota. It is the most widely used
EMR system in the United States.
Long-term care also has implemented
a new EMR system
GRHS also offers volunteer oppor-
tunities through its volunteer pro-
gram. Volunteers escort patients and
residents to appointments or to the
gift shop, deliver mail to LTC resi-
dents, decorate the facilities, and
work in the hospital gift shop. Volun-
teers can forge friendships with long-
term care residents through the
Friends Across the Ages visitation
program.
The Knit One Pray One program al-
lows residents and volunteers to bond
with one another while knitting or
crocheting prayer shawls for people
who need to know that someone cares
about them. Volunteers also sew
child-sized surgical caps for GRHS’
youngest surgical patients to wear
during surgery and take home.
The Friends of GRHS Foundation
recently changed its name to Glencoe
Regional Health Services Foundation.
Its mission, however, remains the
same. The Foundation encourages
young people who are entering health
sciences programs by providing edu-
cation scholarships.
In May 2013, 47 students from the
area were awarded Sanken-Hatz
scholarships. The Foundation also
furnishes grants to fund a variety of
health care-related projects in the sur-
rounding communities.
“We take pride in our organiza-
tion’s commitment to patient care and
safety. We’re grateful to have a car-
ing, generous staff, dedicated board
members and the confidence of our
patients and their families,” says Jon
Braband, GRHS president and CEO.

Orchard Estates is an at-
tractive apartment complex
on Ford Avenue which offers
independent living for peo-
ple who are “55 and better.”
Connected by an indoor
walkway to Glencoe Re-
gional Health Services’ long-
term care facility, hospital
and clinic, tenants have easy
access to doctor appoint-
ments, the GRHS gift shop
and hospital cafeteria. Or-
chard Estates provides the
community and activity
that’s missing for some peo-
ple who live alone. Freed
from the hassles of cutting
lawn, shoveling snow, raking
leaves and other demanding
home maintenance chores,
Orchard Estates tenants have
time to explore personal in-
terests, pursue interesting ac-
tivities and make new friends.
“It is so much fun to watch tenants discover common in-
terests, old friends and connections to their past,” says
Nancy Ellefson, Orchard Estates apartment manager. “Our
tenants and staff become like family. We celebrate together,
worry about our neighbors and friends, and genuinely care
about each other.”
Orchard Estates offers spacious, well-designed apartments
in five different one- and two-bedroom floor plans, a variety
of dining options, social and recreational opportunities and
additional services for those who request them. Rent in-
cludes all utilities, television, activities, weekly light house-
keeping and maintenance. Heated garages are also available.
Designed with seniors in mind, the apartments have lower
windows for easy viewing, lower light switches and higher
electrical outlets for easier access. There is a controlled ac-
cess entrance for enhanced security and emergency pull
cords in the bedrooms and bathrooms. The building has a
sprinkler and alarm system for fire protection. A guest room
allows family members to visit overnight, close to their
loved ones.
A new logo, marketing materials and web site were
developed in 2012. The new logo consists of an apple tree
growing between the words Orchard and Estates. The color-
ful green leaves show the growth of the community of Or-
chard Estates and the bright red apple signifies the
uniqueness of each tenant who lives there.
Many other projects were undertaken in late 2012 and
early 2013. A new lighted Orchard Estates monument sign
was erected at the entrance to the parking lot. Landscaping
of the monument sign, patio area and front entrance enhance
the welcoming appearance of the building. An irrigation
system was installed this spring.
A lively monthly activity calendar offers opportunities for
Bingo, games, trivia, parties, socials, refreshments and card
games.
“Not everyone wants to participate in everything, and
that’s OK,” states Kim Witte, Orchard Estates activity coor-
dinator. “We want our tenants to participate in the activities
that they enjoy.”
A popular addition to the activity calendar is Nintendo
Wii bowling. “Even tenants who don’t want to bowl enjoy
watching and cheering on their friends,” Witte adds.
“There isn’t a ‘typical’ Orchard Estates tenant,” Ellefson
notes. “Our tenants range in age from 62 to 98, from those
who spend all their time here to those we only see on their
way going out or coming back!”
Allina Health Home Care Services, a Medicare-certified
home health care agency, provides additional services such
as medication reminders and bathing assistance, for tenants
who request it.
Orchard Estates is registered with the Minnesota Depart-
ment of Health as a Housing with Services provider and has
adopted the Aging Services of Minnesota’s Housing with
Services Code of Ethics. The Code of Ethics demonstrates
to the public that they can count on providers of older adult
services to hold themselves accountable for the quality of
information and services they provide.

living options for its senior citizens

The Glencoe Historic
Preservation Society
(GHPS) originated from a
small group of people, who
were serious about preserv-
ing historic structures re-
maining in Glencoe.
In 2006 the society was
incorporated, and soon
thereafter was confirmed as
a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt or-
ganization by the IRS. The
Society has been a Glencoe
Area Chamber of Com-
merce member since 2006.
GHPS purpose is:
• Preserve the history of
Glencoe.
• Educate the public
through presentations, dis-
plays, publications and
newsletters.
• Build community ties
through annual social
events.
• Serve as a steward for
future generations.
GHPS is a non-profit or-
ganization that strives for
community participation
and volunteer action.
The Vintage Singers de-
veloped out of this group.
The singers dress in period
clothing and participate in
singing performances
where requested. Vintage
Singers have entertained at
Orchard Estates, long-term
care and local churches.
The GHPS’ holiday open
house in December (above)
and its Glencoe Days pie
and ice cream social in June
are events GHPS members
look forward to hosting.
A few of GHPS members
have volunteered to take
care of the plants and flow-
ers throughout the city gar-
dens, park entrances,
garden by the Temple and
the many beautiful hanging
flower baskets throughout
Glencoe.
Many of GHPS’members
were involved in the large
fund-raising effort that
helped raise $1.5 million for
the new City Center to be
located in the old Henry
Hill School building
(above).
The group is currently
finishing the remodeling its
Glencoe Historic Room
room in the City Center.
The city also is seeking to
have the Glencoe City Cen-
ter placed on the National
Register of Historic Places.

County busy upgrading roads
McLeod County has undertaken sev-
eral road improvement projects in re-
cent years, most in partnership with
federal, state and municipal agencies.
Three major improvements in 2013
include the construction of a round-
about at the intersection of State High-
way 15 and McLeod County State Aid
Highway (CSAH) 115, just south of
Hutchinson, which takes advantage of
federal and state safety improvement
projects.
This year, the county also is partner-
ing with the city of Silver Lake to make
improvements to CSAH 2 (Grove Av-
enue) within the city. The city is financ-
ing the utility improvements under the
road, while the county and state are
funding the street surface improve-
ments. The project is a continuation of
other CSAH 2 improvements outside of
the city limits that were made within the
past couple of years.
The county also partnered with the
city of Stewart last year on improve-
ments on CSAH 111, which is the city’s
Hall and Main streets within the city
limits, under a similar arrangement, in
which the city funds the utility work
while the county and state pay for the
street surfacing restoration.
The county and the city of Glencoe
are currently discussing a joint effort to
extend Glencoe’s Morningside Avenue
on the east side of town to provide a
north-south corridor between Highway
212 and 16th Street.
The county and the city of Lester
Prairie are currently finishing a joint
project in that community.
Other improvements this past year
and this year include the replacement of
a concrete bridge on CSAH 15 (Falcon
Avenue) northeast of Glencoe.
In recent years, the county also has
used federal safety dollars to install
overhead lighting at rural intersections
— over 30 in the county — to help illu-
minate those intersections for safety
reasons. The federal dollars paid for the
installation of the lights, while the
county will pick up the ongoing electri-
cal and maintenance costs.
Recently, McLeod County also broke
ground for a new highway maintenance
facility that will be located at the inter-
section of Highway 7 and CSAH 15,
between Silver Lake and Lester Prairie.
The new facility, which is estimated to
cost about $1.2 million, will replace the
current Silver Lake and Lester Prairie
shops, which are considered too small
and inefficient for today’s larger equip-
ment.
The new highway shop will be lo-
cated on about 9.5 acres of land, which
the county bought for $75,000 several
years ago in anticipation of the new
building. The funds for the land pur-
chase came from revenues generated
through the county’s recycling pro-
gram, in which recyclable products are
collected by the county and then sold to
other markets.
McLeod County has
undertaken some major
road and highway
improvement projects
recently, including this
year’s construction of a
roundabout at the
intersection of Highway
15 and County State Aid
Highway (CSAH) 115 just
south of Hutchinson.
(Aerial photo courtesy of
the McLeod County
Highway Department).
McLeod County held a groundbreaking ceremony Wednesday, July 24, for
a new highway maintenance facility that will be located at the intersection
of Highway 7 and CSAH 15, between Silver Lake and Lester Prairie.

June
is dairy
month
June has been named
Dairy Month in Minnesota,
and many communities cel-
ebrate by dishing out dairy
products as a way to say
“thank you” to area’s dairy
producers and the impacts
those producers have on the
state economy.
That applies to the
McLeod County area as
well with communities like
Glencoe, Plato and Silver
Lake setting aside special
June days to honor the dairy
industry.
According to the Progres-
sive Dairymen and 2010
U.S. dairy statistics, Min-
nesota ranks sixth in the na-
tion in dairy production,
and second only to Wiscon-
sin in the Midwest region.

Hydrant
replacement
Starting in May, residents may have noticed an in- crease in construction and utility traffic throughout Silver Lake. Besides the high traffic of vehicles through town as part of the Grove Avenue recon- struction project, the city of Silver Lake underwent hydrant replacement. Sev- eral crews from Juul Con- tracting were out and about, installing new hy- drants. On the corner of Main Street and Lake Av- enue, the process hit a “bump,” when crews dis- covered the ancient valve could not be reopened. Public Works Supervi

fter 60-plus years of working full time as a mother, farm wife, cleaner and volunteer, how does one keep busy in retirement?
“Beats the heck outta me,” Alma Ogitzak said. Ogitzak, 87, just retired after 30 years of cleaning at the American Legion in Silver Lake. “I don’t even think it was even open when I started. They just bought it!” she laughed as she recalled start- ing there with Florence Mer- rill.
“She (Merrill) and I came and picked up all the little junk and barrels of garbage each week. There was lumber during construction to be sal- vaged that we picked up, too, and then we’d sweep up all the little stuff,” Ogitzak said. Before starting at the Le- gion, Ogitzak worked at the VFW in Hutchinson and cleaned the auditorium and liquor store in Silver Lake. “They must have asked me to start cleaning the Legion after knowing I cleaned at other places,” Ogitzak said. Ogitak’s daughter, Tammy Stifter, said she remembered helping her mother at the Le- gion when she started. “Besides just cleaning the bathrooms and scrubbi
Corner for years. “Every Saturday morning I’d go up to the Legion to clean. And that was all volun- teer, you know,” Ogitzak said. Stifter added that her mom started everything as a volun- teer before getting paid. “I can’t say I hated to go to work. I loved it. I never minded getting up early and going to work,” Ogitzak said. But now she wonders how she will spend retirement. “We are really trying to condens th h
poppy strudel and kolaches,” Stifter laughed. “Once in a while I’ll bake a poppy strudel for myself, but with my health, I have to watch what I eat. I can’t be eating all these sweets by my- self, ya know,” Ogitzak said. Not only will Ogitzak keep busy baking, but she loves to garden her flower beds, play cards with friends and the res- idents at Cedar Crest in Silver Lake, and head up to the Le- gion e T

At the top of the consent
agenda that started the Sibley
County Board of Commis-
sioners meeting on Tuesday,
May 28 was accepting the
resignation of Darin Mielke
as public works director ef-
fective Friday, June 14.
The consent agenda was
started by new County Ad-
ministrator Matt Jaunich as a
way to speed up routine mat-
ters where no discussion is
needed. That is why there
was no big issue made re-
garding Mielke resigning
after serving eight years as
public works director and
county engineer.
Mielke directed the depart-
ment responsible for the man-
agement and planning of Sib-
ley County’s transportation
and park systems.
After the meeting, Jaunich
said Mielke took a position in
Carver County as the assis-
tant public works director and
deputy county engineer. Jau-
nich added, “Darin will be
missed and he has done a lot
to prepare the county for fu-
ture needs.”
In his resignation letter,
Mielke expressed his grati-
tude for all the benefits Sib-
ley County has brought to his
life, including experience
gained in the business of
county government.
“I am grateful for the op-
portunities and support given
to me and the tireless and
often overlooked efforts of
loyees in Sibley
Public Health and Human
Services for renewal of sever-
al contracts. One is to partici-
pate in the local collaborative
time study. Another is with
the Mayo Clinic Health Sys-
tem for hospice services and
another is with Sibley Med-
ical Center for medical con-
sultation.
Contracts for community-
based waiver services were
approved with Good Samari-
tan Society, Lutheran Social
Services, Minnesota Valley
Health Center, Mom’s Meals
and South View Living Cen-
ter.
A new contract agreement
was signed with PrimeWest
Health for home health care
provider participation.
Other Business
• Jaunich presented the
quarterly financial report for
Sibley Estates. The two Sib-
ley East and West apartment
complexes reported a total
actual year to date income
that is above budget by more
than $32,000.
• The board approved the
2013 Arlington Safe Routes
To School project construc-
tion engineering agreement.
The City of Arlington was
awarded a nearly $200,000
federal grant for the safe
routes to school project.
Since there are federal funds
involved, a separation of
tasks is required. The Arling-
ton city engineer will be hired
to do the design work and the
county is asked to do the con-
struction, administration and
k
say what they are doing with
economic development and
go home.
Swanson added that Jau-
nich has taken the committee
in a different direction “from
a good standpoint.” Swanson
said communities are being
advised to what is available
for city funding. It is more of
a working committee where it
can dream about possibilities.
Joy Cohrs said she learned
the state health department
was approved for funding,
but the SHIP program re-
ceived $5 million less, down
from $40 million to 35 mil-
lion.
She also talked about a
new strain of influenza com-
ing from China called H7N9.
A new virus was also recently
identified.
Cohrs said the Minnesota
River Board is working on re-
structuring and proposing a
29-member board.
There has been talk about
starting a class at Ridgewater
College to train county ditch
viewers. Cohrs said it looks
like a 30 to 40-hour course
would be more expensive
than thought, but hopefully
enough counties will go
along with it to cover the
costs.
News from the state work
force program reports that
Sibley County has the lowest
unemployment rate in the
state since the recession.
Plus, more people in the 50-
plus age group are looking
for jobs.
The Library Board met and
introduced Heidi Storm as the
librarian in Gaylord.

Class president: So don’t be afraid; dreams come true
By Joseph Fehrenbach Class president Good evening ladies and gentlemen, teachers, faculty and fellow classmates. Welcome and thank you for coming tonight. Freedom! We’re done! We put in the time and the effort! We no longer have the disease known as senioritis. In a short while we will be receiving our diplo- mas and officially be graduating from Glencoe- Silver Lake High School. And what a four years this journey has been! This class has accomplished many things to- gether and has created what I’m sure will be life- long friendships. No one here can deny that this class is the most athletic, the smartest, and the most responsible class that this school has ever seen. We have ac- complished this by always pushing each other and striving to be better, with much help from our par-
ents, teachers, friends and community! I want to thank all our parents for always caring for us and loving us even when we make dumb decisions. Thank you to our teachers for always challenging us and pushing us to do our best. Thank you to all our friends, who were always there for us. And thank you to the community and Boosters Club for all the support they have given us. We wouldn’t be where we are today without all the support we have received. As I put on my gown this morning, I was re- minded of my first day of kindergarten. I remem- ber getting on the bus with a sense of fear and trepidation. I was entering a new part of life out- side my home and away from parents. I also remember my first day in high school. I was a little nervous because the school seemed re- ally big to me, and I didn’t know where all my classes were and what high school would be like. As I stand in front of you today, I have the same
sense of fear. We are done with high school, but what do we do now? Where do we go from here? I really don’t know what is going to happen. Sure, we have plans, but when does anything ever go as planned? Some of us will be going into the armed forces, some to college, and others will choose to start working. Some are ready to go to experience true independence for the first time. Others, like myself, are fearful of the unknown. Fearful of how my laundry will get done! I think, sometimes, we are so scared about the future that we forget to live in the present. Many of us are scared to go off to college. Scared of what will happen to our relationhsips with our friends when we are separated by great distances for long periods of time. Some of us may be holding back because we are scared. Don’t pass up opportunities for fear of

Assessments
draw a crowd By Rich Glennie Editor
About 25 people attended Monday’s public hearing on the city’s 2013 street im- provement plan that will in- clude special assessments for a portion of the nearly $2.2 million project. The first phase of a multi- phased comprehensive street improvement plan will in- clude a combination of i
Hendrickson (SEH), the city consulting engineer. But a 35 percent assess- ment on the partial recon- struction and mill and overlay work will be paid by benefit- ing property owners, and that was the rub with most of those in attendance. Several people who spoke asked the city to have the en- tire community pa f

Ag bright spot in ’12 economy
From UM Extension News Service
Minnesota farmers were largely
spared from the drought that severely
impacted much of the Corn Belt during
the summer of 2012, according to an
analysis conducted jointly by Min-
nesota State Colleges and Universities
(MnSCU) and University of Min-
nesota Extension.
The analysis found that drought-in-
duced high crop prices coupled with
above average yields resulted in a
profitable year for farmers who partic-
ipated in the analysis. Overall, median
net farm income (the farm’s contribu-
tion to family living expenses, income
taxes, retirement and business growth)
was up 47 percent from 2011.
The analysis used data from 2,200
participants in MnSCU farm business
management education programs and
110 members of the Southwest Min-
nesota Farm Business Management
Association (the total number of farms
in Minnesota is approximately
80,000).
In farm business management pro-
grams, producers learn how to main-
tain, interpret and use quality business
records to develop business plans,
make key decisions and execute mar-
keting plans throughout the year. The
producer’s personalized annual whole
business and enterprise analyses,
which become the “textbooks” used
for making business decisions
throughout the year, provided the
source data for the analysis.
“Agriculture continues to be one of
the bright lights in the Minnesota
economy. A thriving ag economy is es-
sential for the economic health of rural
Minnesota,” said Ron Dvergsten, dean
of Management Education at North-
land Community & Technical College
in Thief River Falls. “We were not sur-
prised that Minnesota crop producers
had a good year. We were surprised at
how well livestock farms did, given
record high feed costs. Minnesota live-
stock farmers generally produce a
large portion of their own feed, which
gives them an advantage in years like
this.”
The analysis found that, despite de-
veloping drought conditions during the
growing season, corn yields improved
over 2011 for these Minnesota produc-
ers.
Corn averaged 170 bushels per acre,
slightly higher than the 10-year aver-
age of 166 bushels for participating
farms.
Soybeans yielded 46 bushels per
acre compared to a 10-year average of
41.
“We started the growing season with
very adequate rainfall, and the crops
were able to go down and find mois-
ture as we dried up later in the season,”
said Dale Nordquist, Extension econ-
omist in the University of Minnesota
Center for Farm Financial Manage-
ment.
Crop prices were also higher than
most producers had ever experienced.
The average price for corn sales was
$6.08 per bushel, compared to $5.17 in
2011 and $3.67 in 2010. Soybeans
brought $13.08 per bushel compared
to $11.35 and $9.66 the two previous
years. Spring wheat sold for $8.18 per
bushel compared to $7.24 and $5.03 in
the two previous years.
While crop prices were up, so were
production costs. For corn, land rental
rates increased by 17 percent. Fertil-
izer was up 26 percent. The total cost
to grow an acre of corn was up $88 an
acre from 2011, an increase of 13 per-
cent.
Livestock farms were somewhat
more profitable than in 2011, but much
of this profitability was due to the
cropping side of their operations. Milk
sold for $19.60 per hundredweight
compared to $19.96 in 2011. With a
cost of production of $19.19, dairy
farmers made 41 cents on every hun-
dred pounds produced. Market hog
prices declined from $66 per hundred
pounds in 2011 to $63 in 2012. Mar-
ket beef prices increased from $113
per hundredweight in 2011 to $122 in
2012. However, the cost to produce
100 pounds of beef increased by $16.
Inflation-adjusted incomes for these
Minnesota farms increased to levels
that have not been experienced in al-
most four decades.
“We are in the middle of one of
those golden ages of agriculture,”
Nordquist said. “The last period we
had like this was in the 1970s. Those
of us who are old enough remember
that period ended with a hard landing.
We don’t expect another hard landing,
but we know this will end sometime.”
The statewide results are compiled
by the Center for Farm Financial Man-
agement into the FINBIN database
which can be queried at
www.finbin.umn.edu.
