By Alyssa Schauer Staff Writer magine heading west, to the mountainous state of Colorado for six days of work — work that includes an early hike to see the sunrise along the Continental Divide, a tour of an old mine, and a journey through the scenic Loveland Pass of the Rocky Mountains. Glencoe-Silver Lake High School teachers Richard Smith and Terry Becker did just that. They headed to Silverthorne, Colo. at the end of June for a career development opportunity about bringing environmental issues into the classroom. Smith, a science teacher at GSL, said the trip was sponsored by 3M, which meant very little in costs for him and Becker. “Three years ago, I read in the Herald Journal that Lester Prairie received a similar grant for a trip like this, so I contacted Jan Johnson, who was employed in HR (human resources) at 3M, and she had told me about this opportunity to Colorado,” Smith said. The pair joined 37 other teachers from all over the
United States, including three from Minnesota and one from Canada, for a six-day workshop at the Keystone Institute. Smith and Becker said the instructors set up a “mock scenario” of an environmental issue. “They created a fake town, Silver Springs, and gave us an issue to resolve. All we knew was that people in this ‘fake town’ were getting sick. It was 25 percent of the town’s population that were ill, but no tourists. We were given their symptoms, which included fever and diarrhea — very similar to the symptoms of food poisoning,” Smith said. He added that it was a “problem-solving workshop” that catered to many disciplines of teaching, including language arts, social studies, math and science. “We knew it was an issue with water contamination, and from there, we all worked together to find the culprit,” Smith said. Becker said the group had to work its way through the scenario, test the water quality in the city and find the cause and effect of the illness on the townspeople.
“We had to test all of our theories, so we actually went out and screened water for insects, and in the classroom, we tested the water for chemicals and took samples of contaminated waters. Everything was simulated. It was interesting,” Becker said. He said the instructors had all the materials and labs ready for the group to solve the problem. “I was very impressed at how organized everything was,” he said. He added that a large binder was given to each teacher, and was “very well organized” with tabs for each teaching discipline, work sheets, and other methods for problem solving. “Then at the end of the week, it sort of became a drama with us acting,” Smith said. He said he and Becker were given roles as Realtors and others were playing parts of a mayor, business owners, farmers, townspeople, etc. “Once we discovered the problem, then we had to figure out how to solve it as our given roles,” Smith said. He added that the different roles had different ideas of how to remove the contami-

County wheelage approved, sales taxes debated
By Lori Copler and Alyssa Schauer Staff Writers On a 3-2 vote at its meeting Tuesday, the McLeod County Board voted to impose a wheelage tax on licensed vehicles in McLeod County. Discussion revolved around looking for other sources of funding and concerns of the money staying in the county. Commissioners reiterated that the money would stay in the county, and that it was indicated that state and federal funds for roads and highways will not be available. Commissioner Ron Shimanski asked that the County Board look at trimming costs in other departments instead of imposing a tax, and Commissioner Jon Christensen agreed. On a 3-2 vote, however, the County Board voted to impose the wheelage tax, with Shimanski and Christensen the dissenting votes. Commissioners Sheldon Nies, Kermit Terlinden and Paul Wright voted in favor. ***** The commissioners hashed over the possibility of imposing a wheelage tax at a workshop session Thursday morning. The state of Minnesota is extending the potential of wheelage taxes to counties outside the metro area as a means of raising revenues for county road projects. Metro-area counties have had the option of wheelage taxes for several years. Also extended to counties is the possibility of a one-half of 1 percent sales tax, but most of the McLeod County board members seemed loathe to even talk about that option Thursday morning, instead focusing their discussion on the wheelage tax. The County Board held the workshop because a decision on imposing the wheelage tax must be made before Aug. 1 in order to give the Minnesota Department of Revenue time to set up collections of the tax, which would begin Jan. 1 if the board adopts it. According to information provided by the Association of Minnesota Counties, a wheelage tax of $10 per licensed vehicle — excluding motorcycles, mopeds, trailers and semi trailers — could raise a potential $360,000 annually for the county. Highway Department Engineer John Brunkhorst said the collected fee must be dedicated to some aspect of the highway department budget, with projects in the department’s fiveyear plan the most logical choices. Shimanski expressed the most reservations about adopting the tax. A former state legislator, Shimanski said the county could receive more state aid for its roads if the state would stop diverting its transportation dollars. “Too much of the state’s road and bridge funds is getting diverted to (light-rail) trains and transit systems,” said Shimanski. The only way he would like to see the wheelage tax imposed, Shimanski said, is “if it is offset by a tax break on property taxes. The last thing we need to do is impose any new taxes for any reason.” Nies said he agrees with Shimanski that state road and bridge dollars aren’t going where they should, but the county still needs to take care of its own transportation system. “We’re going to be doing this work on our roads no matter what,” said Nies, and a tax or fee for users of the transportation system “is the fairest way” to fund that work. Brunkhorst said that people will be able to see the direct result of their taxes because it goes into the road system. “It goes into bricks and mortar, and doesn’t get buried in some program,” said Brunkhorst.

Silver Lake seniors to meet
The Silver Lake Seniors Citizens Club will meet on Monday, Aug. 12, at 1 p.m. in the Silver Lake Auditorium.
By Jake Yurek
The weather gods will be shining on Pola-Czesky Days this year as we are in store for nearly perfect weather to end the week. We experienced a stretch of very cool July weather over the past few days and even got close to setting record low highs on Saturday. We have moderated back up early this week, but no real heat wave is in sight as a cold low pressure system to our northeast keeps pumping in fresh “cooler than normal” air. Highs to end the week into the weekend should remain in the mid 70s to low 80s. Our best shot of late week rain will come in late Thursday into Friday morning with perhaps a passing shower or brief thunderstorm. Behind the weak system, things turn very nice for the big celebration weekend with highs in the mid 70s, little moisture and, basically, no chance of the big storm that always seems to hit at some point of Pola-Czesky weekend. Taking a look at the extended shows a warming trend trying to push into the area by early next week. Have a great weekend all, celebrate safely! Ma dobry weekendem Mit dobry vikend Wednesday night — Lows 52-58; clear. Thursday — Highs 76-82; lows 56-62; clear/night thunder or shower. Friday — Highs 74-80; lows 53-60; early shower/mostly clear. Saturday — Highs 72-78; lows 53-60; mostly clear. Sunday — Highs 72-79; mostly clear. Weather Quiz: What are average highs/lows and weather for August? Answer to last week’s question: What are some of August’s weather extremes? Highest temperature was 103 degrees (Aug. 15, 1936); lowest temperature, 39 degrees (Aug. 19, 1967); most precipitation 7.28 inches (Aug. 30, 1977). Remember, I make the forecast not the weather!

There are reasons for all those new gray hairs
I’m pretty sure I grew at least 10 or 12 new gray hairs over the weekend. And would you believe the stress that caused this hair growth was once again Jeep-related? I bet you’re all thinking it’s time to get a new(er) vehicle, but believe it or not, this latest fiasco was all me. I had spent the weekend running around with wedding errands, as my cousin, Tina Mickolichek, was married on Saturday. As a bridesmaid, there’s a lot of work to be done concerning hair, nails, shoe shopping and other errands. Needless to say, it was a great, fun-filled weekend, and to “de-stress” from the week’s demanding schedule, I headed north to Merrifield on Sunday to spend the night at my friend Sarah’s parents’ campground. Luckily, this unusually cool, July weather subsided, and we spent the day on the boat in the sun on North Long Lake. On Monday morning, we headed for home, to Sarah’s place in Minneapolis, where I left my vehicle. As I threw my tote bag and suitcase into the Jeep, getting ready to head home to get to work for the afternoon, I dug into the front pocket of my over-sized purse for the keys — only to come up emptyhanded. “That’s weird,” I thought, and searched three other pockets in the purse for the key ring with the square ignition key and the round key to unlock the doors, only to find loose change, gum wrappers, and a few bobby pins.
The Travel Section
By Alyssa Schauer
Sarah headed to her car to look for my keys, in the event they fell out of my bag. I felt horrible, as she was busy unpacking into her new apartment and packing to leave for San Diego for a teaching trip at 5 a.m. Tuesday. Immediately, the worst thought that the keys were left at the campground in Merrifield came to my mind, and I had a slight panic attack, before I told myself to calm down and search the glove compartment, center console, the seats, and my suitcases. I tore that Jeep upside down, shaking out the floor rugs, emptying the cassette tapes, extra pens, and bank receipts from the console and flinging the registration, owner’s manual, extra napkins, and insurance cards from the glove compartment. I found a soggy Dorito and an old French fry under the driver’s seat along with a few pennies and three or four lip gloss tubes under the passenger seat ... but no keys. I chucked my make-up bag, jeans, pajamas, phone charger and other miscellaneous items from my suitcase in a frantic search, and turned the pockets of my jeans inside-out in the hopes to find those two silver keys. In the meantime, Sarah was calling the Chrysler dealership to see how much it would cost to get a key made. “Only $13,” she said excitedly, but then informed me they only have keys on file for vehicles back to 1991. The Jeep is a 1989 model. Cripes. One locksmith quoted $120, which gave me a slight heart attack as I really don’t have the extra cash to spend on copying keys. I just spent that much on a new tire for the Jeep last week! Another said he could do it for $90, or $55 if her parents ended up finding the keys at the campground — we could then send a picture to him for tracing. We called her parents, who were on an eight-mile bike ride into Nisswa, so we had to wait a very long 45 minutes for their return, so that they could search the camper for the keys. In the meantime, I searched the dining room table, end tables, window sills and bathroom counter at Sarah’s, thinking I set them down somewhere. Finally, her parents returned to the campsite, only to inform
us nothing has been found, even after searching the boat. My stress level boiled to an unhealthly level as I fought back tears. I really didn’t want to waste $90 on Jeep keys. How would I fund all my food/beverage purchases at Pola-Czesky Days? I even watched a twominute video on YouTube and scanned instructions on “How to Hotwire Your Car” before deciding I didn’t want to cause any more damage to my vehicle than I had to. After one last look around the Jeep, I told Sarah I was headed out front to search her car. Again. As I ripped up her floor mats, tore open the glove compartment, and ransacked her trunk, my heart sunk as I realized I’d have to forfeit the cash and get keys made. I closed the trunk and headed into her house, when I spotted a shiny reflection in the grass next to the sidewalk. A square key and a round key! I grabbed the keys, jumped in the air, and shouted, “Hallelujah! Praise the Lord!” I never felt so relieved to turn over the ignition and hear that familiar, loud rumbling noise. My goal for the week is to make at least 10 copies of the keys and store them all over Minnesota and Wisconsin. And now I can enjoy a basket of cheese curds and a Sportsman’s burger. Or two or three. Happy Pola-Czesky Days!

SEVENTY-FIVE YEARS AGO - AUG. 6, 1938 — The village council purchased a new Fairbanks Morse Co. water lubricated turbine pump and new motor at a cost of $928.52. The new pump has a capacity of 100 gallons per minute and is operated by a 10 h.p. motor. The pump operates on the principle of an auger and turns at high speed. Silver Lake businessmen will give away tickets again this year with cash purchases and money paid on accounts in cooperation with the Community Fair in providing $100 in cash which will be given away at Silver Lake’s 19th annual fair, Aug. 31 and Sept. 1. The interior of the Church of St. Joesph has been subjected to a thorough cleaning and will be entirely repainted and redecorated. An addition to the choir loft was made extending it six feet. Ornamental decorations were added in the sacristy. New lighting fixtures and wiring system will add to the attractiveness of the interior. Mrs. Anna Kurtz is having a new 22-by-30foot home built in Chalupsky’s addition. Work has started on a new 24-by-36-foot story and a half residence for Mrs. Anton Krcil in Navratil’s addition. Remodeling work is rapidly nearing completion on the parish house at St. Adalbert’s. A new garage has been built at Pokornowski’s station, which was lately moved across the highway in east Silver Lake. A new fire proof shed is being erected in the area of Svanda’s Hardware Store, replacing several old wooden sheds. Joseph Kaminsky has a rebuilt garage and a full basement for his home on Lake St. Mr. and Mrs. Amos Chalupsky moved into their modern new home on Grove Street. Mert Roger’s used car office fills a vacancy on Main Street. A new 72-by-34-foot barn has just been completed at the Alex Klenicky farm northeast of town. A new 26-by-28-foot residence is being erected at the Adolph Yukl place near the Minnesota-Western tracks. Richard Makovsky made a sizeable addition to the barn on his farm south of town. Three youth, Bill Kegler of Winsted, Richard Swendra, and LeRoy Wawrzyniak, only received several face and head injuries when the car in which they were riding at high speed ran off the road and turned over Sunday afternoon south of Silver Lake.

Continued from page 1 also showed the teachers how to portray the different numbers on the Richter Scale and how to teach logarithms. “They also demonstrated parts per million by giving us a container of one million beads. 900,000 of them were blue, nine thousand of them were a different color, and 900 were another color, and so on, and then there was one black bead in that mix we had to find,” Becker said. “It was a great way to show quantities,” he added. “That demonstration was also to show us that some things, like certain bacteria can be 100 per million, and not harm us, but that one bead per million could kill us,” Smith said. He said the institute will send kits with these tools to him and Becker for use in the classroom. “One of the most interesting things about this opportunity was seeing how interdisciplinary it could be. Also, working with other teachers around the United States was great, on a networking aspect,” Smith said. “I was impressed with the classes. This was all done for us and really well prepared. We actually got to head to water for testing, and we got to work both inside and outside to solve the issue,” Becker said. Smith said the classes were meant to highlight key issues in the United States, especially environment and economics. “One of the most interesting things I learned was that when the early settlers were first mining in Colorado, they just dug a hole, deep into the ground, but then they found gold in the rivers. They would dredge the whole river panning for gold,” he said. “The Blue River was dredged to nothing, and now? That’s pretty much manmade,” Smith said. Becker said the workshop focused a lot on sustainability — making choices regarding ethics, environment and economics. “When we had to role play as Realtors, our solutions to solve the problem included getting rid of the contaminated water, selling land and moving people into the city, whereas the farmers were concerned about how the contaminated water was going to get removed. “In the end, we found out that it was a tainted well, where someone disposed of chemicals illegally, and we had to locate other affected wells. So we all had to brainstorm on how to solve the issue,” Smith said. He and Becker said they were given choices to “excavate the area, use bioremediation, a 100 percent natural way to remove contaminated soils, vitrification, which is an electroshock method to remove the contaminated water, incinerate the contamination or contain it.” “It was really interesting. Some methods were more costly, such as the vitrification, and others were not time-efficient, such as bioremediation. You thought about the best method as your given role,” Smith said. “It was a really, really good group of people to work with. I’d definitely like to incorporate a similar town meeting for students for sure. It really made an impact on real-life situations. My job is to always get the kids to think,” Smith said. Becker said the workshop also included a tour to the Country Boy Mines, an early morning hike to see the sunrise along the Continental Divide, and a visit to the Loveland Pass. “It was a great time. Definitely well worth it,” Becker said.
