The increase in LGA is due to action taken by the Minnesota State Legislature. The City of Arlington is scheduled to receive $636,892 in 2013 and will net $714,407 during 2014. That is an increase of $77,515 or a 12.1 percent hike. The City of Green Isle is set to net $53,199 in 2013 and will receive $79,969 during 2014. That is an increase of $26,850 or a 50.55 percent hike. The City of Gaylord is scheduled to receive $768,161 in 2013 and will net $838,313 during 2014.

After follow-ups, Sibley County board takes several actions
By Dave Pederson Correspondent Several items talked about by the Sibley County commissioners at previous meetings were dealt with at the meeting on Tuesday, Aug. 13. Either clarification or more information was needed before there could be some certainty on the direction the board wanted to go. After hearing a presentation last time by Blue Sky Broadband to provide high speed internet and voice service utilizing state of the art wireless protocols in the entire county, administrator Matt Jaunich said his research showed that for technical reasons it is not an option for the county to be a member of a wireless provider. “I learned we signed a new three-year telephone contract earlier this spring,” notes Jaunich about one of the services the private investor would provide. “The state is responsible for most of the security work in county facilities, providing the fiber line for internet between buildings. If we eliminate the state in place of Blue Sky all that maintenance becomes our responsibility.” Before approving the request by the Sheriff’s department to purchase two new squad vehicles the question about sales tax had to be resolved. The board did not want to buy now if the new sales tax for local governments was no longer in effect as of Jan. 1. It was learned because they are emergency vehicles, there is no sales tax required. Action was taken to buy the cars. At the previous meeting the board accepted the resignation of Roseann Nagel as human resource director. Before posting the opening, Jaunich wanted to look into the possibility of staff restructure. He returned to the board Tuesday with a new job description with minor changes. The one significant request is to move the department under the umbrella of the administrator. “I try to eliminate one or two-person departments,” says Jaunich. “The duties of the position are not going to change and it will be given stand alone authority to handle personnel issues. I started looking at ways to re-organize our structure where it will be easier to take on upcoming expected retirements.” Jim Nytes liked the idea, saying that way staff can cover for each other and it can work out a lot better. In another move to restructure staff, the board designated County Treasurer Mary Fisher as the motor vehicle deputy registrar and driver license agent. The work was previously coordinated through the Auditor’s office. The move will start Jan. 1 and does not impact the general public. The other resignation at the earlier meeting was for the P&I (policy and interpretation) coordinator Tammy LaGow, who was working full time to implement the five-year partnership in prevention program grant that works to limit alcohol, drugs and tobacco use by students. Questions concerned the high expense of some of the bills going through the county, even if they are grant funded. There was talk about if the position should be re-filled. Vicki Stock, Public Health and Human Services Director, said the county is about to

Highway 5 Project
Utility work was in full progress along Highway 5 on the edge of Green Isle on Monday morning, Aug. 12. The Highway 5 Project from Arlington and Green Isle followed on Tuesday morning, Aug. 13. Traffic is being detoured to Sibley County Road 9, McLeod County Roads 1 and 10 and Carver County Road 50. Heavy commercial traffic is being detoured to Sibley County Road 13 and 15 and then connecting to the remaining detour to avoid the weight-restricted bridge on Sibley County Road 9. Despite the construction, Arlington and Green Isle are still open for business.

County on short end of program aid increase
By Dave Pederson Correspondent Sibley County Administrator Matt Jaunich announced that the county will receive a 1.1 percent increase in county program aid payments from the state department of revenue at the meeting on Tuesday, Aug. 13. “We will take it, but it is quite less when compared to surrounding counties,” said Jaunich, noting how Carver County received 29.9 percent increase, Scott 32.5, Redwood 30, McLeod 20.1, Nicollet 22.5 and Renville 19.8 percent. Payments for 2014 will rise by $4,032 from $361,661 in 2013 to $365,693. Jaunich says there are three factors when determining payments, including age-adjusted population numbers, average monthly number of households receiving food stamps and the population net tax capacity. Bill Pinske noted that the Governor says counties should be able to decrease spending with this CPA increase. However, he says Sibley County’s aid is less than it was in 2010 even with the increase this year. *In other business, Harold Pettis said the South Country Health Alliance is working to start a domestic violence program at the Sibley Medical Center. It would investigate and examine victims for violence. They want someone to be an advocate for people, including go along with them to the hospital to be checked or to go along to testify in court. *The board authorized Tim Becker, Public Works Director, to purchase a salt sander from Towmaster Truck Equipment for $4,707.84. The county has two that are 11 years old and have experienced a lot of mechanical repairs the past two years. One will be replaced and the other used for a backup. The new sander will be able to be used on different trucks in the future. *Bryan Gorman, Emergency Management Director, asked approval to sign an agreement with the University of Minnesota-Duluth to work on the Hazard Mitigation Plan Update, which is mandated every five years and is grant funded. Gorman said the county received a $40,000 grant from FEMA four weeks ago. He expects the cost of the program to come in at around $30,000. *The board also approved application for the 2013 Emergency Management Performance Grant. The county will receive about $19,000 in the yearly grant which will be matched 50/50. The match is already covered in the emergency management budget. Gorman said he plans to spend the funds on the go kits used by the EM director and his deputy for mobile emergencies. In the past, one kit was purchased and is stored in Green Isle and this one will be at the Winthrop fire department. Funds will also be used to finish off projects in progress. *Approval was given for the 1900 Henderson School Restoration Group, LLC to receive a revolving loan fund of $20,000 that will be paid back over 10 years at four percent interest. Jaunich said the request was for $50,000 but the county has set policy limit at $20,000. It is a small amount compared to the cost of the project of around $1 million. Collateral will be the property value of the site and the applicants gave a personal guarantee to back the grant. *Becker said the state will reimburse the county an estimated $12,000 from a gas tax to accommodate the detour of Highway 5 between Arlington and Green Isle. After recording traffic flow on the stretch, a formula was estimated for gas usage by the county vehicles. The survey showed 25 percent of the traffic includes trucks and 75 percent cars. *Jim Nytes attended the HRA meeting, saying the lawsuit by the Madelia Mobile Park was settled in the county’s favor, yet the legal cost was $70,000. He said there is an opportunity to recapture $16,000 of that expense. The HRA office will move to a new space in Henderson costing about $80,000. * Pettis said contract negotiations with law enforcement officers have resulted in arbitration. *The county will look into an incident where it took the Medical Examiner two and a half hours for the investigator to come out and release a body. The contract says it will take less than 45 minutes. The Sheriff will look into the incident.

Rollover accident near town
A Glencoe man was injured in a one-vehicle rollover accident along County Road 12 about two miles west of Arlington at 6:35 a.m. Sunday, Aug. 11, according to the Sibley County Sheriff’s Department. Joshua D. Lindeman, 20, was driving a 1994 GMC Sierra westbound on County Road 12 when the vehicle reportedly left the roadway, struck a driveway and rolled, according to the report. The vehicle was a total loss. Lindeman, who was not wearing a seatbelt, had to be extricated from the vehicle. He was transported by the Arlington Ambulance to the Sibley Medical Center in Arlington and later airlifted to the Hennepin County Medical Center in Minneapolis. An update on his medical condition was unavailable when this edition of the Arlington Enterprise went to press. The Arlington Fire Department also assisted at the scene.

Board approves partial roof replacement
By Karin Ramige Cornwell Manager The Sibley East School Board, during a recent meeting, approved a bid of $75,370 from Gag Sheet Metal, New Ulm, to reroof the elementary section of the Arlington school building. Labor costs will be $70 per man per hour with a 10 percent material mark up. A second bid from Vos Construction, Green Isle, was received at $114,600. The board asked about the difference in the two bids, and the reputability of Gag Sheet Metal. Superintendent Jim Amsden explained that Gag specialized in this type of projects and is able to buy materials in bulk. Business manager Jana Tessmer added that her previous employer had worked with Gag and was always pleased. Amsden said that this is a project that was not budgeted in the current year. He said $39,000 is budgeted for roof repairs. He has been working with head custodian Bob Pichelmann to reallocate projects and funds to cover the project. Some of the funds will come from not upgrading the football field lights and waiting to order drinking fountains and new desks, tables and chairs. Amsden added that the roof has a greater effect on a larger number of students. The project is scheduled to begin soon.
In other actions, the board: • Approved the 2013-14 Elementary, Junior High, Senior High handbook as presented by the principals. Reference to the bullying policy was added to all three handbooks. • Tabled the approval of the Activity and Coaching handbooks pending the update of wording on excused absences and practices. The update will be verbally communicated at the activity meetings and the board will approve the final revisions at the next meeting.

Glencoe couple injured in cycle-vehicle crash
DRESBACH, Minn. — WXOW News 19 of La Crosse, Wis., reported Aug. 8 that a Glencoe motorcycle driver remains in the hospital following a collision with another vehicle in the construction area in Dresbach. Witness accounts said 59year-old James Eiden was northbound on Highway 61 when his cycle struck the driver’s side of an SUV driven by 23-year-old James Kruckow of La Crescent. His vehicle was headed west through the construction zone intersection at the time. Kruckow and his passenger, Pete Zervakis, 24, are both employees of WXOW. Neither was injured in the crash. Eiden’s son, Chris, told WXOW his father suffered non-life threatening head and hip injuries. Eiden first went to Gundersen Health System in La Crosse, but later was transferred to Hennepin County Medical Center in Minneapolis, according to his son. Eiden’s passenger on the motorcycle, 59-year-old Michele Eiden, received nonlife threatening injuries, according to the Minnesota State Patrol. No tickets have yet been issued in the collision. A report from the Minnesota State Patrol is expected later this month, WXOW reported. Assisting the State Patrol at the scene were the Winona County Sheriff’s Office and Tri State Ambulance.

start year three of the fiveyear grant. The recommendation of the personnel advisory committee is to continue in the program for the life of the grant and post to recruit a new coordinator. Stock told the board if it decided to withdraw from the grant the contract indicates there may be a request of some repayment of funds. Joy Cohrs asked if it can be made clear on the bills if they are grant money being used so the public realizes they are not public tax dollars. Auditor Lisa Pfarr said she will try to accommodate the request. Following up on a previous discussion, the board apJOYCE AND DAVID KROELLS

90 Years Ago August 16, 1923 Louis Kill, Editor The Arlington Greys went to Green Isle Sunday and defeated the team of that place by a 3 to 1 score in a fast and interesting contest which was the main attraction at the Old Time Picnic. Although errors were plentiful on both sides and there were men on the paths almost every inning, the teams seemed to tighten up at critical times and there was but little scoring done. Coming fast on the heels of the gasoline price reduction in South Dakota, the bottom fell out of that commodity in Minnesota the fore part of the week. Reductions by Twin City oil stations followed one another until Tuesday morning when the Standard Oil Company of Indiana announced a ﬁxed price. This price affected Arlington as well as all other sections of the Northwest. The Standard price at Arlington on Tuesday was quoted as 14.8 cents from tank wagon and 17 cents retailed from ﬁlling stations. 60 Years Ago August 13, 1953 Louis Kill, Editor Twelve head of cattle owned by Irie Bergs, near Blakeley, were marooned on a sandbar in the Minnesota river one day last week as the result of rapidly rising waters following the heavy rains. Mr. Bergs contacted County Agent Duane Wilson for help in rescuing the herd and the latter called Frank D. Blair of the State Game & Fish division, who had a huge scow sent out from St. Peter and the animals were brought back to terra ﬁrma the same day. Roy Mueller & Sons herd of prize winning Red Polled cattle were loaded in the local railroad yards Monday and departed on their long itinerary to fairs and expositions in various parts of the country. The herd is in charge of Karl Mueller and a helper. It will be shown at fairs in the central states as far south as Texas. Two servicemen from Green Isle are presently on duty in Korea. Pfc. Manley Mathwig recently received the Combat Infantryman’s Badge for excellent performance of duty in Korea with the Second Infantry Division’s 23rd regiment. Mathwig, a riﬂeman in Co. K. has also received the UN service ribbon and the Korean service ribbon with one campaign star, since arriving in Korea last April. Pvt. Martin Brueggemeier recently arrived in Korea for duty with the 45th infantry division. Brueggemeier, an artilleryman, entered the army in January. 30 Years Ago August 18, 1983 Val Kill, Editor Darren Cain, son of Melvin and Nancy Cain of Green Isle, won a gold medal in the freestyle cadet (13 and 14 year olds) wrestling match as a member of the USA Team at the World Schoolboy Wrestling Festival held in Missoula, Montana, August 2-6. Darrin competed at 62 kg. (136.5 lbs.) He beat Franco Fasone of Italy in the ﬁnals on August 6. Chris Maca, son of George and Kathe Maca of Arlington, was recently awarded a scholarship by the Sibley County Chapter of the American Red Cross to attend the Red Cross Leadership Development Center Camp at Lake Minnetonka in Excelsior. The scholarship was given in recognition of Maca’s leadership ability and for his participation in Red Cross water safety classes. The Minnesota State Fair and The Farmer Magazine have recognized 299 Minnesota farms as 1983 Century Farms. Included in this group are the following Sibley County farms: Robert H. Bade, Arlington (1868); Hillard A. Kroells, Hamburg (1883); Clayton Overson, Gaylord (1861); Roland and Melroy Ruschmeyer, Gibbon (1878); Reuben Sommer, Gaylord (1864); and Kenneth E. Stoeckman, Green Isle (1861). 15 Years Ago August 13, 1998 Kurt Menk, Editor Mike Schramm recently began his duties as the new administrator at the Arlington Municipal Hospital. He replaces Interim Administrator John Stindt who resigned over two months ago. The fourth annual Woodtick 98’ will be held at the Arlington Sportsmen’s park on September 4. The event, sponsored by the Arlington Sportsmen’s Club, will feature two bands - Uncle Fester and Zeew Factory.

Vikings stadium deal on hold while commission “double checks” owners’ business dealings
Our view: Good idea to investigate further before entering into a nearly $1 billion stadium deal
Last week, a New Jersey judge, presiding over a 21 year old lawsuit between Minnesota Vikings principal owners, Zygi, Mark and Leonard Wilf and former real estate business partners, said she found “fraud, breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty and racketeering in how the Wilfs took money out of the partnership through fees and other means, according to an article in the Star Tribune, adding “I do not believe I have seen one single financial statement that is true and accurate.” This news comes not even two weeks before the final agreements between the State of Minnesota and the Wilfs were set to be made on the $975 million Vikings stadium. The Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority, the public group handling the stadium project, said Tuesday that it has retained Peter Carter of the Dorsey & Whitney law firm to lead a “due diligence” review of Vikings owner Zygi Wilf and his family’s real estate business. Governor Dayton, the key supporter in the stadium deal, said the findings in New Jersey were “very, very concerning.” The final financial agreements were set to be signed on next week, on Friday, August 23, with the ground breaking to come shortly thereafter. That is all on hold, for now, while the investigation takes place. Though Governor Dayton is a huge backer of the stadium, it was right for his camp to take a step back and investigate exactly what is going on before finalizing such a large project, of which the tax payers of the state will be responsible for $477 million.

Letter To The Editor
Dayton is an incompetent governor
To The Editor, Governor Dayton told everyone that “only the rich and the cigarette smokers would be impacted by the tax increases.” Democrats paraded that theme extensively, and now that the truth is out about the farm repair tax, the governor says that it was “the biggest mistake of the legislative session.” He pulls an “Obama” trying to spread the blame to the entire legislature, when the truth is that the DFL in their lust for tax dollars passed the bill and he, the governor, signed it. Now adding insult to injury, he wants the Republicans to help him straighten out the DFL made mess in a special session, without him giving anything in return. That doesn’t sound right when he has already expressed that he will consider repealing the “warehousing tax” if the GOP can find replacement funding in the budget. Maybe, if Dayton were a competent executive, none of this would have happened. If nothing else, Governor Dayton can now add “incompetent governor” to his resume. Dwight Grabitske Arlington

Anniversary of Medicare: A time to reflect and act
By John Marty State Senator Forty eight years ago this summer, President Lyndon Johnson signed Medicare into law, providing health care for millions of older Americans. As our state begins full implementation of the Affordable Care Act, it is appropriate to reflect on the progress we have made on giving health care access to Americans, and commit to delivering Medicare for all. At the signing of the Medicare law, President Johnson said, “No longer will older Americans be denied the healing miracle of modern medicine. No longer will illness crush and destroy the savings that they have so carefully put away over a lifetime so that they might enjoy dignity in their later years.” The Medicare program has largely succeeded in fulfilling that promise. Seniors get the healthcare they need, when they need it. It still doesn’t cover all medical needs, but over the years, it has been expanded several times to increase the number of people covered, and the number of services provided. In 1972, people under age 65 who had long-term disabilities were included in Medicare. In 2003, prescription drug coverage was added. More recently, the Affordable Care Act (often called ObamaCare) added preventive care services to Medicare, as well as mammograms and other health screenings, and it reduced the co-payments seniors pay for prescription drugs. For older Minnesotans, Medicare has been a lifesaver. Minnesotans under 65, however, have been covered - or not covered under a fragmented and broken system of employer-based health insurance, private plans, public programs, or no insurance at all. Fortunately, during the next five months, many previously uninsured Minnesotans will receive health care coverage through the MNSure insurance exchange of the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Those who were denied coverage because of preexisting conditions should no longer face that problem. Young adults whose parents have good coverage are now eligible for coverage through them. Minnesota, under Governor Dayton and the DFL legislature this year, is leading the nation in its thoughtful and comprehensive implementation of the ACA. By upgrading MinnesotaCare and expanding Medicaid, Minnesota will make health care accessible to hundreds of thousands of additional people. However, the ACA is not Medicare. It does little to eliminate the bureaucratic waste in our current system or reduce the overall costs of our health care system - and it will not cover everyone. Nationally, about two thirds of the low income people eligible for coverage under the ACA will not be covered because their states have chosen not to expand Medicaid. Minnesota is doing much better than those states, but there will still be a couple hundred thousand Minnesotans without coverage, and many more who have coverage will not have affordable access to some needed services. Although the ACA will close some gaps in our dysfunctional health care system, gaps will remain, and many people needing care will fall into those cracks. As soon as the ACA is fully implemented, it is time to turn our attention to completing the promise of Medicare for all. Legislation to enact a proposed Minnesota Health Plan (MHP), a Medicare-style plan for everyone is the only solution to rapidly rising medical costs. The MHP would beef up the coverage that Medicare recipients get including nursing home care and many other needed services - and extend those same benefits to everyone, regardless of age. The Minnesota Health Plan would cover all Minnesotans for all of their medical needs. Yet the MHP would save money, eliminating the costly bureaucratic insurance system and delivering health care directly. And, in providing health care to all instead of health insurance for some, we would leave medical decision-making with patients and their doctors, not subject to government or insurance company interference. A growing number of Minnesota physicians and nurses are supporting the MHP, because they are tired of patients who get inferior treatment based on insurance company restrictions. Two years from now, when the nation celebrates the 50th anniversary of Medicare, we want to be on the verge of passing the Minnesota Health Plan. Five decades after Medicare covered people over 65, it is time for Minnesota to cover people under age 65 as well, finally delivering Medicare for all.

Rose verbally commits to wrestle for the University of Minnesota
By Kurt Menk Editor Two-time defending state champion Nathan Rose, who will be a senior on the Sibley East varsity wrestling team this year, has verbally committed to wrestle for the University of Minnesota after he graduates from high school. Rose made the verbal commitment on Thursday, Aug. 8. Rose, for the second consecutive year, captured first place honors in the 195pound weight division during the Minnesota State Class A Wrestling Tournament at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul this past March. Rose was the first Sibley East wrestler to win a state title last year and now is the first Wolverine grappler to win back-to-back state championships. Rose concluded his most recent season with a 45-0 record overall. He will enter next season, his senior year, with 90 straight wins. He is the son of Tony and Jenny Rose, Arlington.

By Kurt Menk Editor The Arlington Greys Base Ball Club posted two wins at the Scott-Carver Threshers at Jordan on Sunday, Aug. 4.

Arlington Greys 4 Minneapolis Quicksteps 3 The Arlington Greys Base Ball Club edged the Minneapolis Quicksteps 4-3 in 11 innings during the ScottCarver Threshers on Sunday afternoon, Aug. 4.

After the Quicksteps recruited a driver from the antique tractor parade, “Stove Pipe” was traded back in time to make his debut for the Greys and score the gamewinning run.
