Bid awarded for painting at the Community Center By Kurt Menk Editor The Arlington City Council, during its regular meeting on Monday night, May 19, unanimously approved a motion to award the $6,825 bid from Spletzer Repair & Improvement, LLC, Henderson, to paint the interior of the Community Center. The only other bid received was $7,300 from Robert Stiles Painting. The painting is expected to take about 15 to 20 days, according to City Administrator Liza Donabauer. The work will be started and completed depending on the schedule of events at the Community Center. The City Council made the move based on a recommendation from the Community Center Citizens Committee and in an effort to make the Community Center a more attractive and inviting facility to potential renters. In other business, the City Council unanimously adopted a resolution to approve the plans and specifications and order an advertisement for bids on the 2014 sanitary sewer system cleaning and televising. The project will include 18,500 feet of sanitary sewer. The bids are due Friday, May 30 and will be considered during the regular meeting on Monday, June 2, according to Donabauer. The project is expected to be completed by Sept. 1, she added. In other business, the City Council unanimously adopted a resolution to amend the 2014 fee schedule for an approximate six percent increase in the electric rate. The City Council, at its previous regular meeting, had unanimously approved a motion to increase the electric rate by approximately six percent. The City Council made the move in conjuction with the 2014 Electrical Improvement Project which will cost around $540,000. The rate increase will enable the City of Arlington to make the debt service payments and will generate some cash (debt coverage) which should accumulate in the electric utility and be available for future capital projects. Although the user fee has seen increases over the year, the base fee has not increased in at least 15 years, according to Donabauer. In other news, the City Council unanimously approved a motion to hire Sara Burton as an on-call paramedic. The City Council, in another move, approved a motion to authorize the auction of the 1985 Chevy C70 fire pumper truck at Fahey Sales, Glencoe. In other action, the City Council was informed that the Sibley County Municipalities Association will hold its next meeting at the Henderson RoadHaus at 6 p.m. Tuesday, June 17. The League of Minnesota Cities will also hold its annual meeting in St. Cloud from Wednesday, June 18 through Friday, June 20. The City Council will hold its next regular meeting at 6:30 p.m. Monday, June 2. Arlington City Council votes to raise Community Center liquor licenses By Kurt Menk Editor The Arlington City Council, during its regular meeting on Monday night, May 19, unanimously approved a motion to raise the Community Center liquor licenses from $100 per year to $1,000 per year. The rate increase will become effective July 1. City Council members James Jaszewski, Jennifer Nuesse, Curt Reetz, Jason Ruehling and Galen Wills all voted in favor of the motion. The City Council made the move after a recommendation with the Community Center Citizens Committee. The committee had originally considered a sealed bid process for a sole beverage provider at the Community Center. After a meeting with the owners of the Arlington Haus and Arlington Dugout, the committee agreed to compromise and raise the Community Center liquor licenses instead. In addition to the increase in the Community Center liquor licenses, the city staff and bar owners will meet to compile one set list of all alcohol prices for events at the local facility. This list will be attached to the back of the rental policy. At a previous regular meeting, the City Council unanimously approved a motion to establish a caterer serving fee based on a sliding scale of the number of guests served and bar fee based on a sliding scale of invited guests at an event. The City Council made the moves to close the approximate $16,000 to $31,000 gap of taxpayer dollars to operate the Community Center each year.

It recently installed InstyMeds, a fully automated ATM-style machine that dispenses prescription medications directly to patients. “This system is available 24 hours a day and offers a safe, convenient option for our patients who are ill or in pain to receive their prescribed medications at the point of care before leaving,” said Todd Sandberg, vice p r e s i d e n t / a d m i n i s t r a t o r, Ridgeview Sibley Medical Center. “Many of our patients’ visits to Urgent Care and the Emergency Department happen outside of regularly scheduled clinic hours or on weekends and holidays. With InstyMeds, those pa- tients can now have those urgent prescriptions filled immediately.” Sandburg added, “Hospitals nationwide – including Ridgeview Medical Center in Waconia – are using this system and, with more than 2 million InstyMed dispenses without error, the system is 100 percent safe for our patients.” According to InstyMeds, the automatic process takes just a few minutes to complete. A medical provider enters a medication order electronically, counsels the patient on the prescribed medication and gives the patient a voucher with a unique security code. Using the touchscreen of the InstyMeds dispenser, the patient enters the unique security code and their date of birth. The patient then swipes a debit or credit card to pay for the medication. After the dispenser per- forms a triple bar code safety check, the prepackaged, labeled product is dispensed to the patient. For information, visit www.instymeds.com.

It is also a time to remember and honor the veterans who have passed away after their service in the military. Some people believe the holiday has strayed from that purpose. Instead of an official day of remembrance and mourning, they feel it has become an unofficial kickoff to a vacation season. That may be true in some communities around the country, but it is certainly not the case in Arlington and Green Isle. The veterans service organizations in both communities have traditionally featured meaningful programs which have been well attended by local and area residents on Memorial Day over the years. One bright note to this traditionally subdued observance is the way the veterans service organizations have gotten the youth involved in these programs. The Sibley East senior high band and Boy Scouts have participated in the yearly program over the years and it is the hope that these youth will pass the importance of this holiday on to their children in the future. Memorial Day is only a few days away and there is no doubt that local and area residents will again attend the programs at Memorial Park in Arlington and the gymnasium at the Green Isle Community School on Monday, May 26. It is important for local and area residents to take one hour out of their lives to attend these programs to honor and reflect on the more than 45 million men and women who have served in the military in a long distinguished line going back to the American Revolution and to the more than one million veterans who have died in that service. -K.M.

The supervisor tells him he is expected to paint two miles of highway a day, and the man goes to work immediately. The first day he paints four miles. “Great,” the supervisor thinks. The next day the man paints two miles, but the supervisor thinks, “Well, that’s good enough.” The third day the man only paints a mile. “What’s the problem?” the boss asks. “An injury? Some reason you keep painting less and less highway?” The man replies, “Well, I keep getting farther and farther from the bucket.” ***** A young man had just returned from agricultural college and was visiting a neighboring farm to show off. “Your methods are so old fashion,” the visitor declared. “Why, I’ll bet you don’t get 10 pounds of apples from that tree.” “I dare say you’re right,” said the farmer. “That’s a pear tree.” ***** A young couple was driving down a moonlit country road when the car engine coughed, and the car came to a halt. “That’s funny,” the boy said. “ I wonder what that knocking was?” “Well, I can tell you one thing for sure,” the girl responded coolly. “It wasn’t opportunity.” ***** The teacher after correcting class papers remarked to the student, “I don’t see how one person can make so many mistakes on his homework.” The student considered for a moment, then replied, “It wasn’t one person. My dad helped.” ***** The foreman of the jury reported angrily to the judge that no agreement on a verdict was in prospect. “The jury will have to continue its deliberation,” said the magistrate. “If you haven’t come to a decision by seven o’clock, I’ll have 12 dinners sent in for you.” “If your Honor doesn’t mind,” said the foreman, “I suggest that the order be changed to 11 dinners and one bale of hay.” ***** A former choir singer was asked why she gave up singing with her church group. “I wasn’t there on Sunday,” she explained, “and someone asked if the organ had been fixed.” ***** If everyone swept in front of their own house, the whole world would be a lot cleaner. ***** The trouble with being a lender today is that you can’t tell if people are following you or chasing you. ***** Arlington ENTERPRISE Established in 1884.

In fact, the people on the patio at the Dugout even ducked it sounded so close. Nothing is ever reported on that. 3. Every spring and summer the city news letters tell you not to mow grass clippings on streets. Does anyone go around and tell offenders not to do that anymore? Xcel Energy puts a lot on the street and they don’t get the news letter. Just wondering. Betty Meffert Arlington Not my kind of bonding bill To The Editor, Today, I voted against the cash and bonding bills. The total cost does not bother me nearly as much as what we are spending the money on. For example, approximately 4.3 percent of the total $900 million in the bonding bill will be spent on roads and bridges while millions in these bills will be spent to fund projects like the Nicollet Mall, the St. Paul Palace Theater, the NorShor Theatre in Duluth, Minneapolis Sculpture Garden (spoon and cherry), snow making machines at Giants Ridge, the Hennepin Center for the Arts (which is of course in addi- tion to the millions of Legacy money dedicated to the arts), the St. Paul Children's museum (which is really more like a state subsidized day care center than a museum) and yet another sports stadium, Wade Stadium in Duluth (don't forget the U of M football stadium, Twins stadium, Vikings stadium and St. Paul Saints Stadium). I simply cannot agree with this biannual exercise of borrowing money, a loan you will be responsible for, to fund local pet projects that involve wants rather than needs. Neither do I agree with spending the cash raised from last year's tax in- creases in such a wasteful manner. Once again, I feel your legislature and governor have failed to address Minnesota’s needs, such as roads and bridges. The next generation should be justifiably disappointed with mine for squandering Minnesota’s wealth on ear marks and thereby exposing them to the responsibility of carrying the entire burden of repairing, maintaining and building Minnesota’s future infrastructure and higher education systems. Scott Newman State Senator District 18 Louis Kill was a true gentleman To The Editor, I was greatly saddened to see the obituary for Louis Kill in last week’s issue of the Enterprise. It was not because we were great friends; our paths in life merely crossed. But he left a great impression on me as a true gentleman. I first met Louis Kill through correspondence, when I had asked him to write about his father, also Louis Kill, and the Arlington Enterprise for the Arlington Sesquicentennial book. In one of the letters I mentioned that my wife and I bought the house where he had spent his youth; he told me about carving his initials in the house, and I informed him that the initials were still there in the edge of the door. In 2008 his father was elected to the Arlington Baseball Hall of Fame, and Louis Kill came to Arlington to attend the presentation. It was then that we met for the first time in person. We swapped stories about his father’s baseball days, and I was able to tell him how much I, as a historian, appreciated his father’s writing. I could tell that meant a lot to him. I thank God for allowing Louis Kill to be a part of my life, even though it was only a very small part. Louis Kill was a true gentleman, and I will cherish his memory. Dwight Grabitske Arlington Guest Column Can America save everybody? By Glenn Mollette I would like nothing more than to hear on the news that our FBI or Navy Seals have found and saved the 276 kidnapped girls in Nigeria by Boko Haram. There are reports that some of the girls have already died or are sick due to poisonous snakebites. They and their families are suffering. They need help. Boko Haram has led a five-year Islamic uprising in Nigeria that has taken the lives of thousands of people, both Muslim and Christian. Just this week an attack on Gamboru, which is on the border of Cameroon, took the lives of 300 people. In recent weeks Boko Haram's regime has been responsible for the kidnapping of 276 young girls and is threatening to sell them into slavery. This year alone, at least 1,500 people have been killed by this terroristic group. Nigeria is a nation of approximately 170 million people. The country is half Muslim and half Chris- Staff Bill and Joyce Ramige, Publishers; Kurt Menk, Editor; Karin Ramige, Manager; Barb Mathwig, Office; Ashley Reetz, Sales; and Jean Olson, Proof Reading.

The religious regime feels that Western influences are corrupting Nigeria and that a Muslim state must be enforced. Abubakar Shekau is the leader of Boko Haram which means, western education is a sin. Shekau has been in hiding with his ruthless and depraved army in the Sambisa Forest. The forest is reportedly 23,000 square miles of thick, tall vegetation filled with poisonous snakes, lions and monkeys. It is extremely difficult to navigate. There is no place in our world for this kind of ideology carried out in the name of religion. Shekau and his militant bloodthirsty supporters are deranged psychos who wreak misery on anyone with whom they come into contact. America cannot run to every nation and put out every fire. Ukraine, Syria, Egypt and many other places are filled with serious problems and could use our help.

They are Africa's largest oil producer with billions of dollars in oil sales. Unfortunately most of the Nigerian wealth is in the hands of a few people and corruption abounds from business to government. They seriously need to utilize some of their oil money to develop a stronger military and police force to protect them. America cannot take care of everybody. However, trying to help Nigeria develop a better defense is something we should do and I hope we can be successful. This shouldn't require five thousand troops. However, it may require our government sending FBI, Navy Seals, or whoever to locate and deal with Abubakar Shekau. Surely we have one drone just for him.

Sibley County Museum to open May 26 There is never a lack of volunteer jobs at the Sibley County Museum. This is the time of year when cleaning is the main priority as with any household. “Some of our members were able to help with outside clean up during the community effort on May 10,” said Curator Sharon Haggenmiller. Trimming the bushes, raking the leaves from flowerbeds, trimming trees were some of the jobs completed. The museum will open from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Monday, May 26. It will be open from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Sundays through October. There are also plans to open the museum to visitors during the Classic Car Roll In from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesdays. Genealogy may be researched by private appointment. People may call the museum at 507-248-3434 for charges and more information. No genealogy will be researched during the museum’s open hours, Sundays or Tuesdays. “Everyone is encouraged to stop by to see our featured displays about Country Schools,” said Haggenmiller. “For some it will be a blast from the past, for others it will be a learning experience of what school was like until the mid 1950s when country schools began to decline. Haggenmiller continued, “These displays also lead us into our next mission of publishing a history book about Country Schools in Sibley County, including parochial schools. There were 80 school districts in Sibley County. The challenge is collecting information surrounding these districts, photos of the buildings, students, teachers, any memorabilia, etc.” The committee is still looking for any of these items from schools in Faxon Township, districts 21, 42, and especially districts 22 and 23 to scan or photocopy for use in the publication. Do you have any stories about your school days? How did you get to school, what was a typical day like, what did you take for lunch, name some games you played at recess etc. These are just some of the stories that the committee is seeking. People who have any items or stories to share may call the museum at 507-248-3434. “The recent rains have caused another spring with a slow beginning, especially for the farmers,” said Haggenmiller. “I am thinking of the pioneers and all the work involved with setting up a farmstead and maintaining it. Of course most land owners had a small amount of acreage, but the physical labor, using horses or oxen, walking behind to harrow or plow, planting crops then harvesting, had to be very exhausting.” Haggenmiller continued, “Come see our display of agricultural items from days gone by. There is also a fine collection of all kinds of tools that would not be found in a toolbox of today. Most artifacts date from the late 1800s to the early 1900s.” The Sibley County Museum is located along Highway 19 at the west edge of Henderson.

A bright and popular student and cheerleader, Kathleen graduated from the Arlington High School in 1945. She obtained a teaching certificate from the College of St. Catherine and taught grades K-1 for three years in Fairfax and St. Louis Park. Kathleen married Leo G.

As her children grew up, Kathleen returned to school, first to Normandale Community College and then to the College of St. Catherine where she completed a B.A. in Theology in 1981. Through the 1980s and early 1990s, Kathleen continued her career in retail sales on a part-time basis. She stayed involved in education by substitute teaching and, in her later years, tutoring early readers. Kathleen’s Catholic faith was a mainstay in a life dedicated to caregiving. Always a devoted daughter, mother and sister, Kathleen also served for a time as a Stephen Minister and RCIA sponsor. She loved children and family, her precious poodle, Molly, birdwatching, people-watching, nature, flowers and working outdoors. She took pleasure in mentoring younger women friends.

Megan Rutt, Tri-City United, won the event with a time of 15.69 seconds. “Megan ran her fastest time all season,” said Sibley East head coach Jill Warzecha. “She had not run a time that fast last year at this point in the season, so that is a positive step in the right direction. I know she was bummed at first, but she ran a great time and had some competition. I believe this will provide her with a great week of training since she is such a competitor; she will rally to the occasion upon her next race.” The Sibley East 4 x 200 meter relay team contributed a third place finish. The foursome included Megan Eckberg, Taylor Brinkman, Ali Stock and Alyssa Weber. Megan Krentz had a fourth place finish in the discus event.

Alison Eibs added an eighth place finish in the 1600 meter run. “We did not fare well as a team, but we are a young, small squad competing against squads double and triple our size,” said Warzecha. “Having the depth would be beneficial since we have many athletes who compete in the maximum number of events to cover as many areas as possible. I don't think the weather was again conducive for great times and distances. It was cold and windy again. Many people are tired of wearing winter apparel at May track meets.” Sibley East will compete in the sub section track and field meet at Glencoe at 4 p.m. Thursday, May 22.

Fawns born in May: Leave them alone Newborn fawns may appear abandoned and fragile but their best chance for survival comes when people leave them alone – especially in spring, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources said. “While a new fawn may appear helpless, it’s important to keep your distance and not interfere with the doe’s natural instinct for raising its young,” said Jeff Lightfoot, DNR northeast regional wildlife manager. “Leave fawns alone and let wildlife remain wild.” Deer rear their offspring differently than humans. Most fawns are born in May and within hours of birth the fawn is led to a secluded spot so it can nurse. With a full stomach, the fawn is content to lie down and rest. If the doe has twins, it will hide the second fawn up to 200 feet away. Then the doe leaves to feed and rest herself, out of sight but within earshot. In four or five hours, the doe will return to feed the fawns and take them to a new hiding place. Deer follow this pattern for two to three weeks, and only then – when fawns are strong enough to outrun predators – do the young travel much with their mother. Deer have evolved a number of special adaptations that make this approach to fawn rearing successful. Fawns have almost no odor so predators are less likely to smell them. Their white spotted coats provide camouflage when they are lying on the forest floor. For the first week of life, frightened fawns instinctively freeze, making full use of their protective coloration. Older fawns remain motionless until they think they have been discovered, and then jump and bound away. A deer ’s primary protection from predators is its great speed. Newborn fawns are not fast enough to outdistance predators so they must depend on their ability to hide for protection. Although these adaptations work well against predators, they don’t work very well with people. For the first few weeks, a fawn’s curiosity may entice it to approach a person who comes upon it. What’s the right way to handle an encounter with a fawn? Never try to catch it. If it’s hiding, admire it for a moment and then quietly walk away. If the fawn tries to follow, gently push on its shoulders until it lies down and then walk away. “Leaving fawns alone gives them the best chance for survival,” Lightfoot said. “Even most orphaned fawns are best suited to survive without human intervention.” Never feed or place a collar on a fawn or other wild animal. Collaring a wild animal sets it apart from other wild animals, encourages habituation to people and increases the likelihood for harm to the animal. Conditioning any wild animal to seek human-provided food can cause it to stop seeking natural food sources. Feeding deer can be a problem. Feeding encourages the transmission of animal disease such as chronic wasting disease, which can be spread through saliva when multiple deer eat from the same food source such as feeders or piles of feed left on the ground. Feeding deer can concentrate animals in feeding areas which makes them more susceptible to predation, vehicle collisions or other unwanted human interactions. What begins as a good intention to help the animal ultimately promotes disease and lessens the animal’s ability to survive independently. “Not all animals survive, and some mortality is a natural occurrence. If you have a question about an interaction with a wild animal, contact your local DNR area wildlife office for suggestions,” said Lightfoot. “In most cases, letting nature take its course is the best advice.” Join the Employer of Choice on the Inland Waterways • Deckhands • Culinary Cooks • Vessel Engineers • Towboat Pilots (Fleet & Line Haul) Candidates must possess a minimum of a valid driver’s license and high school diploma/GED.

The data, which is reported at the national, state and county level, will help farmers, ranchers, local officials, agribusiness and others make decisions for the future. “Census data provides the foundation of information needed to design programs and initiatives that support agriculture and serve farmers across Minnesota,” said Dave Frederickson, Minnesota Commissioner of Agriculture. The 2012 Census of Agri- culture data show the following key trends for Minnesota: • Number of farms in Minnesota, at 74,542, fell 8 percent from 2007. This reversed a short term trend where farm numbers increased slightly in 1997, 2002 and 2007. Although the count of farm operations with harvested cropland was relatively unchanged, declines in the count of operations with other types of land and livestock enterprises contributed to the overall decline in farms. A farm is defined as any place from which $1,000 or more of agricultural products were produced and sold, or normally would be sold, during the Census year. • Land in farms in Minnesota totaled 26.0 million acres, down 3 percent over 2007. Declines in pasture, other cropland, and wood land acres off-set an increase in cropland harvested acres. • Market value of agricultural products sold increased 61 percent over 2007 while total production expenses increased 50 percent. This resulted in an increase of net cash farm income which averaged $94,345 per farm. • Average age of the principal operator in 2012 was 56.6 years, continuing the steady long term increasing trend. • Beginning farmers, those who have operated a farm less than 10 years, account for 17 percent of all principal operators. • Women are principal operators in 6,370 farms in Minnesota, down from 7,361 in 2007. These operations make up 9 percent of all farms, 4 percent of land in farms and sold 398 million dollars worth of agricultural products in 2012. “The 2012 Census of Agriculture provides a wide range of demographic, economic, land and crop and livestock production information,” said Dan Lofthus, State Statistician for the USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service, Minnesota Field Office. “Many of these data about Minnesota and our counties are only collected and reported as part of the every-fiveyear census.” For more information about the Census of Agriculture including all the final 2012 Census of Agriculture results, and tools to access and share the data, visit www.agcensus.usda.gov. FORR group holds regular meeting in Henderson 1x4 The group supporting the Rush River Park recently met at the Henderson RoadHaus, according to Bev Brandt.
