NOV. 12 REPORT OF THEWRIGHT COUNTY SHERIFF
Chamber hosts craft sale
Maple Lake Fire Department Report
He believes the sharingagreement should continueunder the same state law that al-lows townships to control zon-ing independently of thecounty.“Joint exercise of powers fa-cilitate more logical, consistentand efficient administration of shoreland management goals,”Levi quoted from the statute.“Local governments are en-couraged to enter into jointpowers agreements with adja-cent or other similarly situatedbodies of government, includ-ing counties, to jointly admin-ister shoreland managementcontrol.”He contended that the cur-rent relationship was workingwell and changing it would re-sult in little or no savings.About 60 percent of those wholive on Cedar Lake do not havevoting privileges in CorinnaTownship due to their perma-nent address.Corinna Township PlanningCommission Chair CharlotteQuiggle shared the oppositeopinion and offered a thoroughcomparison between the town-ship and county as supportingevidence.“Property owners have toldthe township they’d rather workwith township people who livein their community,” Quigglesaid. “This was overly ap-proved at a crowded 2006 an-nual meeting.”She said permits could besubmitted 24-7 via a drop boxand said Corinna TownshipPlanning Commission membersare required to make site visitsfor each property prior to a pub-lic hearing while county boardmembers make limited site vis-its.While county notices areprinted in the Howard LakeHerald-Journal and are notavailable online, CorinnaTownship notices are printed inthe Maple Lake Messenger andAnnandale Advocate and areavailable at www.hometown-planning.com, where landown-ers can also sign up for emailnotices about zoning issues.“Any subscriber is automat-ically sent an email with thelink to an updated meetingagenda or staff reports on thewebsite,” Quiggle said. “Thisallows property owners to beinvolved with land-use deci-sions no matter where theyare.”She contrasted that onlineavailability to that of two othertownships that administer allland-use: Middleville Town-ship’s website does not publishmeeting agendas or minutesand Stockholm Township doesnot have a website.As for regulations, Quigglesaid, “Corinna Township notonly requires a plan for erosionand pollution control duringconstruction, but also a perma-nent stormwater plan prior toreceiving a variance.”Clearwater Lake PropertyOwners Association PresidentTom Bacon agreed with Quig-gle and said a lake property thatwas sold in 1997 has a septicsystem that is not up to code de-spite a county ordinance requir-ing it to be upon point of sale.Arv Klemz, who lives onSugar Lake, gave another ex-ample.“A year and a half ago, theperson who lives next to usstarted cutting trees. I calledBuffalo but, to my knowledge,I got no response,” Klemz said.“This property has a bluff in itand I understand it’s illegal tocut into it. He did cut a roadinto it and cut trees on top of it.I called Corinna and they hadpeople out there within twohours.”He called the township’s ap-proach “fair and balanced.”Corinna Township PlanningCommission member TrishTaylor said the committee care-fully considers each request.“We don’t just send itthrough; we look at every-thing,” she said. “We’ve evendenied people a lot of things,which is really hard.”Barry Schultz, another com-mission member, told thecounty commissioners theywould not be kept out of theloop if the township is givensole responsibility for shore-land zoning.“We’re an open book,” hesaid. “We just feel we’veearned the right to handle itourselves.”Kathy Jonsrud, of CedarLake, said she is concernedabout the sustainability of thetownship administering shore-land zoning.“In Hennepin County, thelast township said, ‘We’re notgoing to do it anymore becauseit’s too expensive,’” Jonsrudsaid. “Also, the quality of peo-ple. We’ve heard tonight aboutthe commitment Charlotte andher group have and the leader-ship Charlotte has brought, butwhat happens if we don’t haveCharlotte? “The other thing is, as wemove forward, the whole con-cept of making a dispassionatedecision,” Jonsrud continued.“I do believe the county is in abetter position to step back andmake that dispassionate deci-sion.”Riley added to that discus-sion.“Ultimately, who’s beencaught in the middle of this isthe taxpayers, citizens and vot-ers of the township,” Riley said.“Someone brought up beingtaxed twice,” CommissionerChristine Husom added later.“I’m interested about the im-pact on taxpayers.”Husom and her fellow com-missioners were unable to makea decision at the hearing, butsaid they would do so at a fu-ture public meeting.

Under the 100-year-old laws that govern such matters,when a fence between propertiesis erected, both sides pay half thecost of building the fence. • Approved a 2014-15 contractbetween the City of Montrose andthe sheriff’s department. The con-tract calls for 2,020 contract hoursof patrol services in both years of the contract. That's when he met drummerTony Mazzone, who was theMaple Lake band director in War-ren's final year. Warren went on toteach percussion at Dassel-Cokato, where he met guitaristand bassist Tony Sylverss.Both Mazzone and Sylversswill be a part of Warren's EP.In fact, Mazzone's connectionsmade the album possible in thefirst place."Tony Mazzone is a friend of Troy's. He's been a tech for him,"Warren said. "Two years ago, Troywas in town and Tony said, 'Listento this demo.' He really liked it."Warren was surprised to hearthat Luccketta was listening to hisdemo tracks."I said, 'He's what? They're notfinished. Don't share that," Warrenrecalled.He went on to release an albumwith pop influences, but he wasn'thappy with it."I was trying to please otherpeople more than myself," Warrensaid. "It served its purpose, but italso opened my eyes to who I amas an artist and who I want to be."When Warren was starting tocreate his new project, Mazzoneencouraged him to contact Lucck-etta. The two have been in touchsince and Wagner met Lucckettain his Nashville studio."We met up, toured his studio,talked to him, met with a potentialproducer and engineer and hashedout details to get a vibe for whatwe wanted to do," Warren said."As things started to come to-gether, he said, 'I think you shouldwork with Noah Henson as a pro-ducer.'"Wagner was familiar withHenson as guitarist of the Chris-tian rock band Pillar."He's a talented guitarist andproducer," Warren said. "They'reboth in rock bands and we'regoing to do a folk album and Ithink people will be surprised withhow it turns out."As for the content of thealbum, Warren calls it pop funkthat is influenced by his life expe-riences."When I was putting out myalbum, I was hospitalized, whichwas scary for me," Warren said."They weren't sure if I was goingto make it. The day before I wasreleased, our house started on fire.That all happened in a three-weekperiod when I was trying to re-lease an album, so there are a lotof personal elements in the newalbum along with spiritual andlyrical content."Warren is looking forward tosharing that music, with the helpof online backers, including somewho he does not know.As of Tuesday morning, 21backers had pledged $1,447."It's super cool to see completestrangers say this is a cool projectand they want to be a part of it,"Warren said. "I think that speaksvolumes to what we're doing."
