Ridgeview Sibley Medical Center
installs an InstyMeds machine
The Ridgeview Sibley
Medical Center is now offering patients the option to
have prescriptions filled immediately before leaving the
Urgent Care and Emergency
Department. 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,

Memorial Day is a time
to remember those people
who have died in service
Our View: Purpose of Memorial Day has
not changed in Arlington and Green Isle
Memorial Day is a time to remember and honor the brave
men and women who have died in service of our country. 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
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.

A man gets a job with the county
painting lines down the center of the
highway. 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

A young man had just returned
from agricultural college and was
visiting a neighboring farm to show
“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.”

“I wasn’t there on Sunday,” she
explained, “and someone asked if

Newspaper should start ‘Ask Me’ column
To The Editor,
I think the Arlington Enterprise
should add an “Ask Me” column for
the little things that happen around
town and never get addressed.
Examples: 1. A story on the porta-pottie at Frenzel Park that got
knocked down by a vehicle and
damaged. There’s never been a police report on it either.
2. What’s with all the gun shots at
night around town? On May 10,
there were a few. On March 19, they
were heard from Peace Lutheran
Church to West Main Street. In fact,
the people on the patio at the
Dugout even ducked it sounded so
close. Nothing is ever reported on
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.

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.

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.

the lives of thousands of people, both
Muslim and Christian. Just this week
an attack on Gamboru, which is on the

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

very poor country but their economy is
growing. 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

from business to government. They seriously need to utilize some of their oil
money to develop a stronger military

America cannot take care of everybody. However, trying to help Nigeria

“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

“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.

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
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
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.”

2012 census profiles MN farmers and agriculture
Today the U.S. Department
of Agriculture’s National
Agricultural Statistics Service
(NASS) releases the final
2012 Census of Agriculture
results sharing a wide-range
of information about what
agricultural products were
raised in the United States in
2012, and where, how and by
whom they were grown. 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
• 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.”
