Nelsons are SWCD Rural
Beautification winners
by Scott DCamp
Reporter

Lana and Brad Nelson of
Deer Park Township are the
2014 winners of the Pennin-
ton Soil and Water Conserva-
tion District Rural
Beautification Contest.
Homes in Deer Park, May-
field, River Falls and Wyan-
dotte townships were eligible
for the 2014 rural beautifica-
tion award.
This was the second time
the Nelson’s were nominated
for the SWCD’s rural beauti-
fication award. The first
nomination came about 25
years ago. The Nelsons are
also past winners of the
SWCD Outstanding Conser-
vationist Award.
Brad credits his wife for
beautifying their yard and
added that she deserves the
award.
“To me, she’s getting rec-
ognized for all her hard
work,” he said. “She loves
growing flowers.”
“I do it for therapy,” Lana
added.
Lana said the award came
as a surprise. She is always
working to improve the yard
and it’s never quite finished.
She joked that her yard is
“helter skelter.”
The Nelson’s mow and

Chelsea Sorteberg looks to continue winning streak
by Scott DCamp
Reporter

A winning streak will be
on the line during Saturday’s
Smash and Bash Demolition
Derby at Island Park in St.
Hilaire.
Chelsea Sorteberg, winner
of last year’s Smash and
Bash Demolition Derby
pickup division and the last
two Pennington County Fair
demolition derbies will look
to win her fourth consecutive
competition in Pennington
County.
For those who aren’t dem-
olition derby regulars, the ob-
ject is basically to ram other
cars/trucks and have the last
car/truck standing in a given
heat.
Sorteberg, a 2009 Lincoln
High School graduate, is far
from being the first female
driver to enter a demolition
derby and she isn’t the first
to win a competition in Pen-
nington County. But she has
become a local fan favorite.
Sorteberg’s longtime
boyfriend and Half Ass Rac-
ing teammate, Andrew John-
son, is credited with getting
Is there a conflict of interest?
by April Scheinoha
Reporter
A Thief River Falls City
Council member requested
that another council member
leave a public meeting Mon-
day afternoon.
At the start of the meeting
and with no warning, Coun-
cil Member Rachel Prud-
homme asked that Council
Member Glen Kajewski ex-
cuse himself from the meet-
ing. She said Kajewski had a
conflict of interest. Prud-
homme noted that she had
read information from a
Hubbard County investiga-
tion in which Kajewski al-
legedly hindered the
prosecution of his son, Erik,
in a drug case.
“I’ll excuse myself, but this
is bullshit. This is serious
bullshit,” Kajewski said as he
walked out of the room. He
added that Prudhomme
should talk to the attorneys
who handled the matter.
At the time, city represen-
tatives were about to discuss
with county representatives
the possibility of joining a re-
gional Violence Prevention
Task Force. The task force
handles the enforcement of
drug and other violent
crimes.
Evidence room reforms
were also on the agenda. The
latter subject has been dis-
cussed extensively after
firearms were reported miss-
ing from the evidence storage
room at the Law Enforce-
ment Center in 2013. Police
Chief Kim Murphy was rep-
rimanded at that time for
failing to properly monitor
three firearms that had gone
missing.
No conflict of interest
After the exchange be-
tween Prudhomme and Ka-
jewski on Monday afternoon,
City Administrator Larry
Kruse left the meeting to call
City Attorney Paul Ihle.
Upon returning to the meet-
ing, Kruse noted that Ihle
didn’t see anything on the
agenda that would be a con-
flict of interest. Kruse ex-
plained that Ihle noted if
Kajewski had a conflict of in-
terest, he could still attend
the meeting but wouldn’t be
allowed to speak.
Kajewski spoke in person
with Ihle before returning to
the meeting within half an
hour. After the meeting, he
said there was no conflict of
interest and he was disap-
pointed in both his own and
Prudhomme’s actions.
The next day, Kajewski
told The Times that he and
his wife, Darby, did what
they felt they needed to do to
help their son. He said they
didn’t break any laws.
Kajewski noted that Sgt.
Doug Williams asked for an
Facilities use agreement
approved by council
by April Scheinoha
Reporter
The Thief River Falls City
Council has approved a facil-
ities use agreement with the
Thief River Falls School Dis-
trict. At its meeting Tuesday,
Aug. 5, the council approved
the two-year agreement to-
talling $245,532. The School
Board approved the contract
at its meeting Monday, Aug.
11.
The contract covers the
school district’s lease of
Ralph Engelstad Arena, the
Huck Olson Memorial Civic
Center, the Ole Engelstad
Park tennis courts, and the
Multi-Events Center softball
and baseball complex. The
school district leases the fa-
cilities for athletic events,
the Lincoln High School
graduation ceremony, the ac-
ademic excellence breakfast,
and the boys and girls hockey
teams’ annual banquet.
The contract stipulated
that the school district will
pay $120,952 no later than
Feb. 1, 2015, for the 2014-15
school year and $124,580 no
later than Feb. 1, 2015, for
the 2015-16 school year. The
school district is paying for
the use of REA and the
HOMCC. It will lease the
other facilities for free.
Both sides agreed to a
two-year contract after city
representatives advocated
for a one-year contract and
school district representa-
tives advocated for a three-
year contract. At its meeting,
the council approved the
agreement as part of its con-
sent agenda.
In a memorandum to the
council, City Administrator
Larry Kruse wrote that the
latest contract negotiations
cleared up several issues.
Among others, he referred to
start and stop times for ice
availability. Kruse also men-
tioned the possibility of re-
opening contract talks in the
event Pennington County
tears down the county-owned
City Auditorium and/or Old
Arena.
The agreement also speci-
fied that the two entities will
meet with the MEC Opera-
tions Committee sometime
during the first two weeks of
January. That meeting will
include a discussion regard-
ing snow removal in the
MEC softball/baseball area.
The contract indicated that
neither the city nor the
school district budget or pay
for snow removal at recre-
ational facilities. If snow
were removed from that
area, the contract specified
that the costs and resources

IRS warns about phone scam
The Internal Revenue
Service has warned con-
sumers about a sophisticat-
ed phone scam targeting
taxpayers, including recent
immigrants, throughout the
country.
Victims are told they owe
money to the IRS and it
must be paid promptly
through a pre-loaded debit
card or wire transfer. If the
victim refuses to cooperate,
they are then threatened
with arrest, deportation or
suspension of a business or
driver’s license. In many
cases, the caller becomes
hostile and insulting.
“This scam has hit tax-
payers in nearly every state
in the country. We want to
educate taxpayers so they
can help protect themselves.
Rest assured, we do not and
will not ask for credit card
numbers over the phone, nor
request a pre-paid debit card
or wire transfer,” said IRS
Acting Commissioner Danny
Werfel. “If someone unex-
pectedly calls claiming to be
from the IRS and threatens
police arrest, deportation or
license revocation if you
don’t pay immediately, that
is a sign that it really isn’t
the IRS calling.”
Werfel noted that the first
IRS contact with taxpayers
on a tax issue is likely to
occur via mail.
Other characteristics of
this scam include:
• Scammers use fake
names and IRS badge num-
bers. They generally use
common names and sur-
names to identify them-
selves.
• Scammers may be able
to recite the last four digits
of a victim’s Social Security
Number.
• Scammers spoof the IRS
toll-free number on caller ID
to make it appear that it’s
the IRS calling.
• Scammers sometimes
send bogus IRS emails to
some victims to support
their bogus calls.
• Victims hear back-
ground noise of other calls
being conducted to mimic a
call site.
• After threatening vic-
tims with jail time or dri-
ver’s license revocation,
scammers hang up and oth-
ers soon call back pretend-
ing to be from the local
police or DMV, and the caller
ID supports their claim.
If you get a phone call
from someone claiming to be
from the IRS, here’s what
you should do:
• If you know you owe
taxes or you think you might
owe taxes, call the IRS at 1-
800-829-1040. The IRS
employees at that line can
help you with a payment
issue – if there really is such
an issue.
• If you know you don’t
owe taxes or have no reason
to think that you owe any
taxes (for example, you’ve
never received a bill or the
caller made some bogus
threats as described above),
then call and report the inci-
dent to the Treasury
Inspector General for Tax
Administration at 1-800-
366-4484.
• If you’ve been targeted
by this scam, you should
also contact the Federal
Trade Commission and use
their “FTC Complaint
Assistant” at FTC.gov.
Please add "IRS Telephone
Scam" to the comments of
your complaint.
Taxpayers should be
aware that there are other
unrelated scams (such as a
lottery sweepstakes) and
solicitations (such as debt
relief) that fraudulently
claim to be from the IRS.
The IRS encourages tax-
payers to be vigilant against
phone and email scams that
use the IRS as a lure. The
IRS does not initiate contact
with taxpayers by email to
request personal or financial
information. This includes
any type of electronic com-
munication, such as text
messages and social media
channels. The IRS also does
not ask for PINs, passwords
or similar confidential
access information for credit
card, bank or other financial
accounts. Recipients should
not open any attachments or
click on any links contained
in the message. Instead, for-
ward the email to phish-
ing@irs.gov.
More information on how
to report phishing scams
involving the IRS is avail-
able on the genuine IRS
website (www.irs.gov).

TRF man sentenced for drug offense
A Thief River Falls man
was sentenced Monday, Aug.
4 in Pennington County
District Court for a 2012
felony offense of fourth
degree controlled substance
crime.
LaShaun Tarez Moran,
33, was sen-
tenced to 13
months in
prison. He
was ordered
to supply a
DNA sample
and pay
$210 in fees
and fines.
According
to the com-
plaint, the charge stemmed
from an Oct. 24, 2012, inci-
dent. A Minnesota Bureau of
Criminal Apprehension spe-
cial agent spoke with a confi-
dential informant who had
been in contact with Moran
via phone. The informant
was then sent to meet
Moran to buy an eight-ball
(3.5 grams) of methamphet-
amine from him for $700. A
short time later, Moran
called and asked the inform-
ant to meet him at
Pennington Square in Thief
River Falls.
The special agent and the
sheriff ’s office investigator
searched the informant prior
to the deal. No drugs or
money were found. They out-
fitted the informant with a
body transmitter and then
dropped him off two blocks
away from the gas station.
While the vehicle was under
surveillance, they could hear
a conversation in which pur-
ported meth was purchased
for $700.
A short time later, they
picked up the informant,
who had purchased a sand-
wich baggie of what
appeared to be one gram of
purported meth. The special
agent asked the informant
why the amount was smaller
than 3.5 grams. The inform-
ant said Moran had given
him the amount inside the
bag.
The informant was then
instructed to call Moran to
find out why the amount
was less than 3.5 grams.
Moran replied that was the
amount he had received
from his “guys” and it wasn’t
his fault. The informant told
Moran that his recipient
wasn’t happy that the pur-
chase was extremely light.
Moran reiterated what he
had earlier told the inform-
ant.
Later, a second call was
placed to Moran. The
informant handed the phone
to the special agent, who
said he was the intended
recipient of the meth. He
told Moran that Moran
needed to give a portion of
the money back or he needed
to provide the full amount of
meth, according to the com-
plaint. Moran tried to repeat
what he had earlier told the
informant. The special agent
then reiterated his earlier
request. Moran hung up the
phone. The conversation had
been recorded.
The drug field-tested pos-
itive for meth. The drug was
tested at the BCA’s office. It
was determined in
December 2012 that the
drug was 0.4 grams of meth.
The complaint was filed
in January 2014.

TRF man sentenced for possession of child porn
A Thief River Falls man
was sentenced Thursday,
Aug. 7 in Pennington
County District Court for
felony possession of child
pornographic work.
Justin Tyler Ramsey, 21,
was granted a five-year stay
of imposition. As a condition
of that sentence, he was
ordered to
serve 90 days
in jail. Half of
that sentence
may be
served on
e l e c t r o n i c
home moni-
toring. Work
release and
Sentence to Serve privileges
were granted. Ramsey was
ordered to serve supervised
probation for five years. If he
successfully completes pro-
bation, the charge will be
reduced to a misdemeanor.
Further conditions were
ordered. Ramsey was
ordered to have no contact
with kids under the age of
18. He is allowed to have
contact with family mem-
bers under that age if his
probation agent approves.
Ramsey was ordered to have
no contact with vulnerable
adults. He was ordered to
register as a predatory
offender and undergo a psy-
chological-sexual evaluation.
Ramsey was ordered to have
no access or use of the
Internet without approval.
He was ordered to not pos-
sess or use any pornographic
or sexually-explicit material.
Ramsey was ordered to not
loiter at public parks or
school property. He was
ordered to supply a DNA
sample. He was ordered to
not use or possess firearms
or dangerous weapons. He
was also ordered to pay $260
in fees and fines.
According to the com-
plaint, the charge stems
from an investigation by the
Minnesota Bureau of
Criminal Apprehension that
began in December 2011. At
that time, a special agent
used a software program to
identify Internet Provider
addresses that browsed or
downloaded suspected child
pornography files.
Two of the IP addresses
were registered to Sjoberg’s
Cable, which was then sub-
poenaed to provide sub-
scriber information. Ramsey
was the subscriber. Both of
the IP addresses contained a
partial download of a sus-
pected child pornography
video.
On Feb. 23, 2012, a
search warrant was conduct-
ed at Ramsey’s home.
However, it was learned that
he had recently moved out
and resided with his par-
ents. The occupant said
Ramsey previously had com-
puters at the home and had
paid for Internet service
there. The man said he did-
n’t own any computers and
allowed law enforcement to
search the home.
Law enforcement then
went to the home of
Ramsey’s parents, 1901
Nelson Dr. His parents said
he had been recently
released from the hospital
and was going to be moving
back home. His father said
he owned a computer tower
that Ramsey had used at the
other residence. He called
Ramsey and requested that
his son speak with officers.
Ramsey admitted that he
searched for pornographic-
related images involving
teenage girls under the age
of 18. Ramsey said it was
quite possible that a comput-
er contained several files or
videos containing images
related to child pornography.
A search warrant was
executed for at least one
computer. About 56 suspect-
ed images and/or videos
related to child pornography
were contained and/or stored
in the hard drive. The police
investigator found an identi-
fication number that linked
the computer to the informa-
tion provided by the BCA.
The videos had been created,
accessed or modified as early
as mid-September 2011 and
as late as Jan. 9, 2012.
Call 811 before you dig
Minnesota Energy
Resources reminds everyone
to call 811 BEFORE
attempting any projects that
require digging. Calling the
811 Gopher State One Call"
should be the homeowner
and contractor’s first step
before putting a shovel in
the ground and performing
any excavation, construc-
tion, farming or digging.
Knowing where utility
lines are buried before each
digging project helps protect
those who dig from injury,
expense and penalties and
ensures the reliability of the
system.
The 811 Gopher State
One Call network is part of a
coordinated nationwide
underground utility location
system that is set up for
everyone’s safety.
Minnesota Energy
Resources has nearly 4,500
miles of underground natu-
ral gas pipelines and over
211,000 natural gas lateral
services in the 165 commu-
nities it serves. Last year,
Minnesota Energy
Resources experienced about
204 accidental dig-ins on its
natural gas system, causing
damage.
Minnesota Energy
Resources records indicate a
high percentage of acciden-
tal dig-ins result from people
not calling 811 before they
dig. Most customers are
aware of the 811 system, but
do not think it applies
unless they are using some
larger power digging equip-
ment. The unfortunate
result may be serious
injuries and disruption of
utility service to entire
neighborhoods.
To request a locate, either
call the 811 Gopher State
One Call by simply dialing
811 or log onto www.gopher-
stateonecall.org. Customers
will be asked a few questions
about their location and
project. Specialists using
sophisticated equipment will
respond to the site and mark
the location of all buried
facilities (natural gas, elec-
tric, cable, telecommunica-
tions) on your property with-
in a few working days.

Franken pushes to make college more affordable with bill
Minnesota Sen. Al
Franken (DFL) introduced a
new bill to bring real reform
to the nation’s higher educa-
tion system by encouraging
states to take action on col-
lege affordability in order to
help students afford college
and graduate in a timely
manner.
The College Access Act of
2014, introduced by
Franken, would attack the
problem of college affordabil-
ity head on by giving states
incentives to prevent the
cost of higher education
from rising. His bill would
help more students, particu-
larly from first generation
and low-income families,
attend and graduate from
college.
“College students in
Minnesota and across the
country often struggle to
cobble together the funds
necessary to pay for their
education, and many still
graduate with enormous
amounts of debt,” said
Franken. “We need to
address the issue of college
affordability with real,
meaningful reforms to our
higher education system. My
bill would help states cut
down the cost of college
while giving our students
more tools to finish their
degrees.”
Franken’s bill would cre-
ate a competitive grant pro-
gram for states to help lower
college costs and bolster
graduation rates. A state’s
eligibility to receive a grant
under Franken’s bill would
be tied to making some of
the following reforms:
• Restricting the increase
in college tuition to a rate
that is below the rate of
inflation;
• Increasing need-based
grant aid for postsecondary
education and ensuring that
the state will distribute the
aid based on need;
• Requiring colleges to
use a standardized financial
aid award letter so that all
colleges would use the same
terms and so that students
and families could actually
compare offers from differ-
ent schools;
• Requiring colleges to
correct their Net Price
Calculators to make them
more user-friendly and
accessible, so that students
can understand the “net
price” of going to different
colleges before they decide
where to apply;
• Expanding the use of
open access online textbooks
on college campuses, provid-
ing cheaper alternatives to
expensive traditional text-
books so that students can
save money on the cost of
going to school;
• Providing funds to
develop innovative educa-
tion delivery models, such as
using technology to enhance
online and classroom learn-
ing aimed at increasing par-
ticipation and retention of
students;
• Increasing access to
accelerated learning models
like Advanced Placement,
International Baccalaure-
ate, and dual enrollment
programs; and
• Improving transfer
agreements between univer-
sities so students attending
community colleges can
more easily move to four-
year universities.
Since joining the Senate,
Franken has worked hard to
tackle college affordability.
He recently joined Sen.
Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.)
in introducing the Bank on
Students Emergency
Refinancing Act, a common-
sense bill to help student
loan borrowers who are
drowning in debt refinance
their high interest loans. He
also has two bipartisan bills
to help students and their
families better prepare for
the costs of higher educa-
tion, and he helped lead the
introduction of the
Affordable College Textbook
Act to combat the rising
expense of textbooks and
supplies.
In addition, Franken has
hosted a series of College
Affordability Roundtables
around Minnesota to hear
directly from students, fami-
lies, and higher education
officials on what can be done
to improve higher education.
And for three years, his staff
has held College
Affordability Resource
Nights in communities
across the state.

There are four operating rooms in the new
Sanford Thief River Falls Hospital. Last
week, the hospital foundation provided
tours of the facility for members, donors,
committee members and active volunteers.
This room was one of the stops on the tour.
The hospital is slated to open on
Wednesday, Oct. 1.
This is the entrance to the new Sanford Thief River Falls
Hospital. The architectural style is classical collegiate goth-
ic. Last week, the hospital foundation conducted tours for
members, donors, active volunteers and a few committee
members. The hospital anticipates offering tours to the
general public in September before it opens.
This is one of the large labor/maternity
rooms at the new Sanford Thief River Falls
Hospital. The hospital is nearing comple-
tion and excitement about its opening is
growing.
Three design themes were utilized at
Sanford Thief River Falls - woods, prairies
and water. The tiles on the floor of the new
clinic appear to mimic water flowing over
rocks. The architectural style of the facility
is classic collegiate gothic. When it opens in
late September, and early October, there
will be 52 clinical exam rooms, 25 private
inpatient suites, four operating rooms, and
six infusion rooms. Sanford broke ground
on the new facility on May 29, 2012.
This is a conference room at Sanford Thief
River Falls. The carpeting is designed to
mimic patterns of the farm fields of north-
western Minnesota as seen from a great
height. The hospital and clinic are located
on Highway 32 South and take up 36,000
square feet. The clinic will open on Sept. 29.
The hospital will open on Oct. 1. A total of
235 precast panels, 850 tons of steel, 95,000
lineal feet of plumbing pipe, and 210 miles
of electrical wire were used in the construc-
tion of the facility.
A vacuum tube system,
similar to that used by
banks, has been installed in
the new Sanford Thief River
Falls Hospital and Clinic.
The clinic will open on Sept.
29. The hospital will open
on Oct. 1.

Digging deeper into a familiar verse
Another Sunday in
church, another sermon on
the same Bible verse refer-
enced at high school gradua-
tion by a colleague. What
could be new? It was from
the book of Matthew, the
parable about sowing seeds.
You know the one. In it,
Jesus basically asks us if our
seeds sown will produce
fruit. He gives examples of
this by referring to the fact
that some seeds fall amidst
thorns, only to be choked
out. Some seeds are blown
away after being scattered
alongside the road producing
nothing. Still others are
strewn on rocky soil creating
a shallow root system too
weak to produce anything at
all. Finally, there are the
seeds which are sown upon
good soil and these seeds
produce much ... nothing
new here.
On went the sermon ask-
ing us what kind of fruit we
are producing from the seeds
that have been sown in us.
Are we faithful to hear and
do? Are we faithful to hear
and go? Are we faithful at all
to what is being asked of us
once we know him? I lis-
tened to all of the familiar
ground covered ... when sud-
denly, pastor's words helped
shift my thoughts. It went
something like this.
So don't go thinking
you've got it all together
because you're producing
fruit and so and so doesn't
have it together because at
the moment there seems to
be little evidence of fruit.
Rather, be still and know
that what the planter has
sown within is his to bring to
fruition, in his perfect tim-
ing so that no man may
boast. Jesus gets the credit
... reminding us ... it's all
about him.
There was a small check
engine light coming on with-
in that perked my ears.
Hmmm, what else did he
say?
And while we're out and
about sowing seeds, be gen-
erous where you are tossing
them. Holding back so they
only fall upon people whom
we deem worthy of our time
can be a show stopper. By
scattering them generously
so all may hear and all may
respond to the gospel being
sown is what it's about ...
that all men may hear and
come to know the glory of
God. The seeds are his word.
Plant, sow, be generous with
whom and where you pour
out and let God raise those
whom he chooses ... for his
glory and not our own.
By having the sermon
paraphrased, it helped me
dig deeper as to what he was
truly asking. He promises,
"My yoke is easy and My
burden light" (Matt. 11:30).
We simply need scatter the
seeds ... the fruit is his busi-
ness. He will grow it, mature
it, and harvest that which is
sown ... for his glory that no
man may boast (Ephesians
2:9). Obedience is our busi-
ness, the fruit is his. Amen.

THEOLOGY IN
THE TRENCHES
Speaking of … A bunch of candidates!
What is going on with our
fair city this year?
Whatever it is, it is wonder-
ful!
Since I am writing this
column early, I don’t know
exactly how many people are
running for City Council this
year, but last I heard, every
position has a contender
except one and many have
more than one. I don’t
remember that such a thing
has ever happened in Thief
River Falls before (but then,
I’m not very old … ah-hum).
I’ll make a prediction for the
next election after this one,
that every open office will
have one or even more con-
tenders because the old
council is going to get a
facelift and it is going to be
something good for years to
come.
This town is growing by
leaps and bounds, and we
need forward-thinking,
active representatives who
actually represent the peo-
ple and not just “go along
with the crowd” and do the
minimum amount of work
for their yearly allotments
from our pocketbooks. Those
people are representing us
and they are getting paid to
work for us, albeit not very
much, but … we need to
make sure that we have rep-
resentatives who do more
than warm a seat at meet-
ings and mumble a few
words.
Quite a few years ago, the
council was active and
downright wild. I had an
uncle on the council then
and I suppose he made
things a little more active
too. Some of my family has
been very outspoken. I don’t
know why! Anyway, many is
the time that things got
pretty heated at the meet-
ings (fun to watch!). Now it
has been several years that
council members have done
nothing but mumble “Aye,”
or “Nay,” then take their
money and run home after
the meetings.
This past year or so,
things seem to have been
heating up. There appears to
be lots of new things going
on in town and more deci-
sions to be made. Good! High
time this town got a kick in
the rear. I hope a little
shakeup will be wonderful
for Thief River Falls. I love
our little (not so little and
getting bigger) town.
And by the way, since this
is my opinion and nobody
else’s, I sure am happy to see
we have a get-up-and-go-to-
it gal on the council. Not
that Elvera hasn’t done well
– she has taken much of the
flak there and done some
jobs that others didn’t seem
to have time to do (or didn’t
want to do), and good for her.
Thanks Elvera! You’ve done
good work for many years.
But, we have another
woman on the council now to
help Elvera, by golly! I think
things are going to go great
guns with our new council
member keeping an eye on
stuff. And if you know me,
I’m sure you know I hope to
see some more women’s
names for more offices in
this town! And I do! Go, gals!
Thinking on it – again,
how long has money been
stuck somewhere waiting for
a decision or a report or
something about a place for
kids to swim? As I have said
before, this pool had money
raised when my kids were in
middle school (I remember
baking cookies and making
Rice Krispie bars for those
bake sales) and my kids now
have kids of their own who
are old enough to have kids
(babies at least). Albeit we
marry young in my family,
but they weren’t that young.
My gosh, the swimming pool
money has been sitting
somewhere for 30 some
years! Where in the heck has
it been? I sure hope it has
accrued a decent amount of
interest – wherever it is.
And where is it, by the way?
Did anybody ever find out?
Good night, do something
about a pool or find that
money and give it back!
(Good luck with that!)
By the way, as you think
about who you want to be
your representative on the
council, think carefully.
Consider whom you want
representing you and
whether or not he or she will
represent you to the best of
their ability. It’s an impor-
tant job – give it some
thought and don’t just vote
for your buddy next door –
unless he/she would be a
really good person for the
job.
And while you are won-
dering who you should vote
for, think about running for
office yourself in your ward
or as alderperson at large.
Really! Seriously! I know
lots of people who would rep-
resent me well. Maybe we
need to poke at them to
remind them what assets
they would be.
Remember, if you are con-
sidering running yourself,
the deadline was Tuesday,
Aug. 12 at 5 p.m. And also
remember that you would be
representing the people in
your ward. What a wonder-
ful thing that would be! If
you have questions, call the
City of Thief River Falls at
681-2943. They are a great
help and can tell you every-
thing you want to know. You
can also call the County
Auditor’s Office if you want
to know what ward you are
in. Their number is 683-
7000.
And I hope that this year
our council members will all
be active, intelligent,
informed and very outspo-
ken assets to the City
Council and that all of us in
this town can proudly point
to our representatives and
say, “Hey, that’s my repre-
sentative on the City
Council and she/he is doing
a great job for me!”
And one more thing, isn’t
it great to hear the Pledge of
Allegiance at the beginning
of every meeting? Good
going, whoever thought of it!
Very impressive!

Christmas” and “A Swedish
Christmas: Love To You,”
Gretchen combines her tal-
ented storytelling with pic-
tures of Inez’s charming
nisser. The three books are
available for $13 each at the

Northwest Regional Library
Endowment Fund.
One hundred years ago,
the Thief River Falls News-
Press was full of positive
news, including the news
that Architect J.C. Lutz had
completed his plans for the
new Carnegie Library. The
plans were available for
viewing at the temporary
library in the City
Auditorium with bids open
to contractors on Aug. 26.
You can almost feel the
excitement building as peo-
ple walk by the corner of
First and Main to view just
where their new library will
be sitting in a year!

Champion fiddler to
return to Chautauqua
Manitoba’s champion fid-
dler is returning to the
Chautauqua and French-
Canadian/Metis Festival at
Old Crossing and Treaty
Park near Huot.
Michael Audette set toes
tapping and hands clapping
at last year’s festival.
Audette and his band will be
on stage Saturday and
Sunday, Aug. 23-24 at 1 p.m.
each day. On Saturday at 9
p.m., they will play for a
dance at The Spot in Red
Lake Falls.
Audette, 20, is one of
Manitoba’s most popular
young Metis fiddlers. In
2008 and 2009, he won the
Manitoba Fiddling
Championship Open
Competition in Portage La
Prairie. In 2009, he was a
contestant in the Canadian
Grand Masters in Ottawa,
Ontario. Audette has com-
peted in numerous fiddling
contests and participated in
Metis events across
Manitoba.
Audette’s passion for tra-
ditional fiddle music was
passed down from his grand-
father, Alex Carriere, one of
Manitoba’s old time champi-
on fiddle players. By age
four, he was playing old time
fiddle music. His style has
evolved with jazz, country
and blue grass influences.
Throughout the
Chautauqua weekend, there
will be music, dancing, pro-
grams, arts and crafts dis-
plays, food and silent auc-
tions. Admission is free and
the public is welcome to all
events in the park.
The festival, presented by
AFRAN (Association of the
French of the North),
emphasizes the French her-
itage of the Red River Valley.
Old Crossing and Treaty
Park is on Red Lake County
Road 11 seven miles north-
east of Gentilly or nine miles
southwest of Red Lake Falls.

ACTIVITIES
Spool Streamers
Collect empty thread
spools to make these sensa-
tional streamers. To make
one, thread three different
colors of corrugated ribbon
through the hole in the cen-
ter of a spool. Tie the ribbons
in two knots, one on each
side of the hole through the
spool, to secure the spool in
place. Complete the stream-
er by brushing clear finger-
nail polish on the ends of the
ribbons to prevent fraying.
Children will love using
these streamers for move-
ment and music activities
and when they become
dingy, just pop them into the
washing machine.

PARENTING TIPS
Dining Out With Young
Children
Dining out with young
children can be a stressful
experience or a very pleas-
ant one. You decide! Often
we as parents expect too
much of our children in cer-
tain situations. Therefore
realistic expectations will
help make this a pleasant
experience. Realizing that
dining out with children is
rarely an adult-centered
activity but rather a child-
centered activity will also
help. Following are some
tips for dining out with
young children from the St.
Louis County Council to
Prevent Child Abuse:
• Consider a restaurant
that caters to families, a
place where young children’s
noise, activity level, and yes,
sometimes mess, will be
accepted.
• Hungry children are
not known for their patience
and don’t see the time before
the meal as a time for con-
versation and relaxation.
Order as soon as you can, or,
in some cases, call ahead
and order in advance. Fast
foods and buffet style
restaurants may be best
until your children are older.
• Restaurants are new
and stimulating places for
young children. Take them
for a walk while waiting for
your meal. Don’t allow them
to wander alone. When car-
rying trays of food, restau-
rant staff have a hard time
seeing small children.
• Tired children rarely
make it through a meal
without incident. If possible,
plan your dining out for a
time when your child is rest-
ed.
SOMETHING TO TALK
ABOUT
Games such as “I Spy” or
“Twenty Questions” might
serve to occupy children
until food arrives.

Sheryl Wilkens, 68
St. Hilaire - Sheryl
“Sherry” Wilkens, 68, St
Hilaire, passed away
Monday Aug. 4, 2014 at her
home after a courageous
battle with
pancreat i c
cancer, with
her loving
family at
her side.
A funeral
service was
h e l d
Sa t ur d a y,
Aug. 9 at
Bethany Lutheran Church
in Red Lake Falls, with
Pastor Tom Potter officiat-
ing.
Sheryl LaRee Rewertz
was born on July 10, 1946 in
Thief River Falls, the
daughter of George and
Idella (Hanson) Rewertz.
She was baptized at
Clearwater Lutheran
Church in Wyandotte
Township and later con-
firmed at Plummer
Presbyterian Church in
Plummer. She was raised
and attended the Plummer
Presbyterian Church until
its closing and then at the
Red Lake Falls First
Presbyterian Church until
her passing. She attended
school in Plummer, graduat-
ing from Pershing High
School in 1964. She then
attended the AVTI in Thief
River Falls for Cosmetology,
graduating in 1965.
On May 15, 1965, Sherry
married her high school
sweetheart, Dennis Wilkens.
To this blessed union came
three children, Paula,
Jeffrey and Sheila. They
made their lifelong home in
rural St. Hilaire.
Sherry was a self-
employed hair dresser from
1965 until recently. In 1974,
Sherry’s Beauty Shoppe was
built into her home, which
then allowed her to be home
with the kids full-time.
Sherry’s greatest pride
was her children and spend-
ing time with and watching
her eight grandchildren
grow. She was a loving and
caring friend to so many.
She loved being able to bring
joy to others through all of
her talents especially her
beautiful paintings that
cover many walls in each of
her children’s houses. She
enjoyed working in her
flower beds and yard, mak-
ing the farm a beautiful
sight to all who came to
visit. Grandchildren, nieces
and nephews, along with
others, were blessed with
her sewing projects ranging
from doll clothes, PJs, dress-
es to handmade quilts.
Gardening not only provided
many hours of canning, but
countless meals for so many.
Grandma’s baking was
one thing all the kids looked
forward to having when they
arrived at her house. Sherry
enjoyed playing many differ-
ent kinds of card games and
only the grandkids were the
ones she went easy on.
Sherry was a member of
the Early Birds homemak-
ers club for over 40 years, a
polling judge during elec-
tions and a member of the
Minnesota Hair Dressers.
She served as a deacon for
the First Presbyterian
Church of Red Lake Falls.
Sherry and Denny loved
spending time together dur-
ing their 49 wonderful years
of marriage. They had the
beautiful completely in love
type of marriage that was a
joy to see and emulate by
her children. They traveled
south in the winter months
and this brought extreme
joy to her.
They were fortunate to
make many friends along
the way, especially their
extended family they had in
Arizona. During these trav-
els and some others, Sherry
would have Denny make
many stops to collect just
the right large unique rocks
to add to her flower beds.
Sherry is survived by her
loving husband of 49 years,
Dennis; her children, Paula
(Jon) Praska – Kylea and
Zachery, Thief River Falls;
Jeffrey (Amy) Wilkens –

been authorized for emer-
gency haying and grazing
use. This decision was made
due to excessive precipita-
tion that caused a severe
shortage of available forage
for livestock producers.
“Additional grazing acres
and forage will now be avail-
able to help livestock pro-
ducers recover from the
severe shortage of forage,
particularly in south-central
Minnesota,” said Crusoe.
“This is good news for live-
stock producers in the
region, and comes at a very
critical time when many
livestock producers are fac-
ing the decision of whether
or not to liquidate their
herds.”
Locally, CRP emergency
haying and grazing is now
allowed in Kittson and
Roseau counties. These
counties experienced a 140
percent or greater average
precipitation from March
through mid-July and sus-
tained a 40 percent or
greater loss of available feed
as a result of the substantial
precipitation.
Emergency haying and
grazing of CRP may only be
conducted on specific, eligi-
ble conservation practices
and is limited to 50 percent
of the field for haying or 75
percent of the field for graz-
ing.
To initiate emergency
haying and grazing, produc-
ers must contact their local
FSA office to apply before
any haying or grazing
begins and producers must
sign a modified conservation
plan with the Natural
Resources Conservation
Service to allow for haying
and grazing practices.
Fields having or located
near environmentally sensi-
tive areas may have addi-
tional restrictions placed on
haying and grazing activi-
ties. Haying or grazing is
not allowed within 120 feet
of a stream or other perma-
nent water body or on acres
devoted to trees.
Emergency haying ends
Sunday, Aug. 31, and the
bales must be removed from
CRP acres by Monday, Sept.
15. Emergency grazing ends
Tuesday, Sept. 30.
For more information,
contact the Minnesota FSA
State Office at 651-602-
7712.

her into the sport.
“I went to my first derby
in 2010, when I met
Andrew,” Sorteberg said.
“My mom claims I went to
one as a kid, but I don’t
remember it.”
Two years later, Johnson
surprised Sorteberg with a
demo pickup. She used that
truck for her first two years
of competitions.
Sorteberg said the male
drivers of her sport have
treated her well. The closest
thing to trash talk that she
has heard was one driver
saying, “I thought it was my
turn,” after one of
Sorteberg’s victories.
Sorteberg took second
place in her first ever pickup
heat at the 2012 Pennington
County Fair, but failed to
crack the top eight in the
feature.
A month later, she
advanced to the pickup fea-
ture at the 2012 Smash and
Bash with a runner-up heat
finish. Sorteberg took fifth
overall in the 2012 Smash
and Bash. Since then, she
hasn’t lost a feature or fin-
ished lower than second in a
qualifying heat. Needless to
say, Sorteberg feels the tar-
get on her back.
Demo derby winners typi-
cally walk away with a nice
paycheck, but overall the
sport is not a money maker
when one considers the cost
of buying vehicles and get-
ting them race-ready.
Sorteberg is on her second
demo truck in her third sea-
son of competition.
“We try to get two years
out of a truck,” she said.
“This one, I’m not so sure. It
got really beat up [at the
Pennington County Fair].”
Sorteberg’s success on the
demo track has been made
possible by a good pit crew.
“I have to give almost all of
that credit to Andrew,”
Sorteberg said. “He’s on the
hunt for stuff all the time.”
Johnson’s father, Rod
Peterson, and Johnson’s
cousins have also helped get
demo cars and trucks ready
for competition.
“It all depends on who’s
busy and who’s not,”
Sorteberg said.
Sorteberg said she still
gets nervous before competi-
tions ... until the race offi-
cials start waving the green
flag. Then she forgets she’s
in front of a crowd.
“I don’t even notice that
they’re there,” Sorteberg
said. “When it gets down to
the last two, it’s kind of a
rush. A lof of times I don’t
even realize that it’s gotten
down to that few.”
The Smash and Bash
Demolition Derby will begin
at 4 p.m. on Saturday, Aug.
16 at Island Park in St.
Hilaire.
Chelsea Sorteberg looks
to continue her winning
ways.
Conflict of interest/Continued
(Continued from Page 1)
investigation, claiming that
Kajewski abused his power
after an incident in which
Erik Kajewski blacked out
in his pickup truck.
Kajewski said the Hubbard
County Attorney’s Office
investigated and found that
the Kajewskis had done
nothing wrong.
Kajewski said his son
became addicted to drugs
after a surgery and did time
in jail and on probation. He
said his son is now married
and has a child. Kajewski
questioned what has been
gained by attacking his fam-
ily.
Kajewski went on to note
that he has recused himself
from any Ad Hoc Labor
Committee discussions
involving disciplinary issues
involving Thief River Falls
police officers due to the
allegations leveled against
him. He added that one mat-
ter is still pending discipli-
nary action and he has sat
out of that discussion.
Both Kajewski and
Prudhomme are up for elec-
tion this year.
Two other council mem-
bers, two Pennington
County commissioners,
Murphy, Kruse and
Pennington County Sheriff
Ray Kuznia also attended
the meeting.
It appeared that both the
city and the county may join
the task force. However,
they first need to determine
the cost of joining the task
force. A local law enforce-
ment officer would have to
be assigned to the task force.
The two entities discussed
the possibility of assigning a
city police officer to the task
force with the cost split
between the city and the
county with possible partial
reimbursement from the
state.
Earlier issues
As noted earlier, evidence
room reforms were also on
the agenda. In 2013, six
firearms were found missing
as part of a felony case. Two
were located in a closet lock-
er in Murphy’s office.
Another gun was found in an
unspecified location. Two
others were returned to
their rightful owner. One is
still missing.
Two other firearms were
confiscated after suicides.
One was found in Murphy’s
closet locker. The other was
moved to the trunk of the
unmarked administrative
squad car and later moved to
the closet locker. Murphy
said the family gave the gun
to law enforcement.
On July 15, the council
held a closed meeting to dis-
cuss the findings related to a
complaint against Murphy.
Once the meeting was
opened to the public, the
council voted 5 to 1 to uphold
the findings. Earlier, Kruse
and later the Ad Hoc Labor
Committee determined that
the allegations were unsub-
stantiated. Kajewski
abstained from voting.
Later, he told The Times
that he abstained because
he considers Murphy to be a
friend.
Lease agreement/Continued
(Continued from Page 1)
need to be determined on a
year-by-year basis.
The council approved
Change Order. The change
order moved the substantial
completion date of the street
and utilities project from
Sept. 12 to Oct. 15. The final
completion date has been
changed to Oct. 31.
The dates were changed
to give the city enough time
to replace 0.09 acres of
delineated wetlands located
in the proposed right-of-way
for an extended Highway 59
frontage road. Cenex plans
to construct a truck stop
there and asked the city to
extend the frontage road.
Mark Borseth, communi-
ty services director, said
incidential wetlands have
been found.
As part of its consent
agenda, the council
approved purchasing a
radar speed monitor
trailer. The city is purchas-
ing the $5,865 trailer from
Lightcast Inc.
The city will be able to
move the portable radar
speed monitor to locations
where speeding is a prob-
lem.
The council approved
the low bid for lime
sludge removal. Lime
sludge is a byproduct of the
water treatment process.
Fergus Power Pump pro-
vided the only bid of $48.02
per 1,000 gallons or an esti-
mated total cost of $76,832.
The company is dredging
lime sludge out of the water
treatment ponds near the
intersection of Pennington
Avenue and Nora Street.
Nelsons win award/Continued
(Continued from Page 1)
and the property is enjoyed
by their six sons Ryan, Kyle
(Kim), Quinten (Alyssa),
Tyler (Kristina), Brent
(Megan), and Chris
(Stephanie); and their 13
grandchildren, who are fre-
quent visitors.
Brad and Lana have lived
on the farm site for 42 years.
The property was originally
home to Lana’s parents,
Orlando and Helen
Chervestad. The Nelson’s
built a new house on the site
in 1978.
The Nelsons got into
farming in 1973, when they
rented 140 acres. Both Lana
and Brad grew up on dairy
farms. Despite Brad’s full-
time job as a carpenter, they
decided to continue to make
farming a part of their lives.
The Nelsons originally
raised hogs and had a 70-
sow operation. Lana said she
began spending more time
on beautificaiton efforts
after the family sold its pigs
around 17 years ago.
Brad cleared some of the
trees from the back yard,
but most of the wooded area
remains. Overall, there are
more than a dozen different
landscaping structures that
adorn the Nelson’s yard.
Whether it is a flower or
perennial bed surrounding
the house, a planter or one of
the many flower gardens,
each structure utilizes deco-
rations that originally had a
much different use.
“I like finding uses for old
objects rather than throwing
them away,” Brad said. “Just
sandblast and reuse.”
Some examples of these
reclamation projects include
old head and foot boards
from beds, a cream separa-
tor, an old fashioned hand
pump well, an old tractor
seat, birdbath, wagon wheel,
single row corn cultivator,
an old fahsioned sewing
machine and small garden
tractors made from short
pieces of tubing for the body
and saw blades for the tires.
Hostas are the primary
shade plant grown by Lana,
with some fern species
mixed in.
In sunnier areas, she
planted petunias that not
only come back each year,
but they have spread to mul-
tiple gardens.
One of the front yard
flower beds features several
rose plants that were given
to the couple by Lorraine
Hamann, who passed away
in 2009 from cancer.
“She was a big influence
on me,” Lana said. “She was
very good with flowers and
could make them grow from
nothing.”
Brad is a former decon
and trustee of Oak Park
Lutheran Church of Oklee;
and a former board member
of the Red Lake County Co-
op.
Lana previously taught
Sunday School and helps
with Bible School. She is a
member of the Deer Park
Garden Club and
Homemakers Club. She is a
former 4-H Volunteer and
volunteer for the Oak Park’s
Lutheran Youth Society.
Today, Brad and Lana are
all but out of the livestock
business. They continue to
maintain a small beef cattle
herd but most of the meat
stays in the family.
Sons Ryan and Tyler took
over the farming operation
and today it is a crop-based,
2,000-acre operation.
Quinten and Christopher
took over Brad’s carpentry
business of 35 years, which
is now known as Nelson &
Nelson Construction.
The 2015 Rural
Beautification Contest will

Q: Where can I learn
what supplies Medicare will
cover for my chronic condi-
tion?
A: The Centers for
Medicare and Medicaid
Services (CMS) is the agency
that runs Medicare, so SSA
employees can only answer
very general coverage ques-
tions. However, the
Medicare website, www.
medicare.gov, has your infor-

Q: I have been working
all year and will retire soon.
For earnings limits, does
Social Security start count-
ing my wages with the day I
start retirement or from the
beginning of the year? Can I
start SSA retirement now or
must I wait until 2015 due
to my earnings?
A: This question is about
the annual retirement earn-
ings test (www.ssa.gov/
retire2/whileworking.htm).
Earnings for the retirement
test include only your own
calendar year gross wages
and net income from self-
employment. If at least age
62 and meeting all require-
ments, you can start Social
Security retirement when
you want, whether this year
after you retire, in 2015, or
some other time.
People retire anytime
during the year. Since those
retiring mid-year may have
already earned over earn-
ings test levels for the year,
there is a special one-time
rule, usually used during
the first year of retirement,
that lets people receive
Social Security retirement
benefits based on monthly
earnings. Using this one-
time exception, you should
be able to start SSA retire-
ment when you retire
despite your total earnings
for this year. Details are at
the provided earnings test
link.
Based on this one-time
rule, a person retiring in
2014, at least age 62 but
younger than full retirement
age the entire year, can
receive Social Security
retirement for months that
gross wages do not exceed
$1,290 even though overall
calendar year earnings are
far above retirement test
amounts. Slightly different
rules apply for self-employ-
ment. Earnings test
amounts for 2015 are not yet
known, but 2014 informa-
tion is online.
Did You Know? Is your
Someday an elusive day on
the far-off horizon? Is it close
enough to see, but too dis-
tant to touch? Someday, you
want to retire. Someday, you
want to start retirement
planning, even if just start-
ing your career. Someday,
you want to estimate your
future Social Security retire-
ment or family benefits and
check your earnings record
for accuracy. Someday has
arrived. Create your person-
al, secure and free my Social
Security account at
www.socialsecurity.gov/mya
ccount with services for peo-
ple not yet or already receiv-
ing SSA benefits. Someone
opens a new account just
about every six seconds.

Baker Cup awarded
at Greenbush track
from Keith Cumming
With the Baker Memorial
Cup on the line, 61 cars en-
tered the pits Saturday at
the Greenbush Race Park,
including 16 WISSOTA mod-
ifieds.
Fresh off his win the night
before in the Big Al Delaine
Memorial, pole sitter and
three-time Baker Memorial
Cup winner Rick Delaine
would lead the field to the
green.
It would take two tries to
get a single lap in, but when
they went green, the drivers
would click off 24 caution-
free laps.
Delaine would lead for all
but two laps, although fellow
Canadian Ward Imrie would
never let him get more than
a car length lead.
With two laps to go, Imrie
would get next to Delaine out
of Corner Four and make the
pass going into One and Two
and lead the final two laps to
pick up his first-ever feature
win at the Race Park.
Delaine, a heat winner,
finished second in the fea-
ture, followed by Dustin
Wahl (Greenbush). Gavin
Paull (Fort Francis, On.) and
Aaron Holton (Newfolden)
were the other heat winners.
The WISSOTA midwest
modifieds were slowed by six
caution flags in the first four
laps, but they would run the
last 12 laps caution-free.
Gary Nelson (Blackduck)
was the early leader. He was
pressured by John Halvorson
(Warren) and Adam Gajeski
(Stephen). When the check-
ers flew, Nelson would hold
off all challengers for his
third win of the year, Bill
Yonke (Thief River Falls) fin-
ished second and Logan
Hamness (Strathcona) was
third. Halvorson and Shane
Wahl picked up heat wins.
The WISSOTA street fea-
ture only had one caution
flag and that flew on Lap
Nine when Salol driver
Heath Corneliusen would
spin in Corner Four while
running in the second posi-
tion. Race leader Aaron
BlackLance (Thief River
Falls) was able to maintain
his lead throughout the race
to pick up his first win and a
sweep of the evening. Shawn
Teunis (West St. Paul, Mb)
would finish second and heat
winner Jordan Duray
(Halma) was third.
Pure Stock early leader
was Bryce Corneliusen (War-
ren) until he spun in Corner
Three to bring out the only
yellow. On the restart,
Jerome Berger (Badger)
would get by Chelsey Ham-
ness (Strathcona) in Corner
Two and cruise to his second
feature win in a row. Mark
Sexton (Lorette, Mb.) would
finish second and Cor-
neliusen recovered to finish
third. Corneliusen and Stan
Olson earned heat wins.
Winnipeg SuperTrucks
made their only appearance
of the summer at the Race
Park Saturday. Rod Fidler
(St. Andrews, Mb.) and
Dustin Enns (Winnipeg, Mb.)
would swap the lead six
times during the 15-lap fea-
ture – the last time on the
white flag lap as Enns got by
Fidler down the front stretch
to pick up the win. Fidler,
who picked up the heat win,
finished second and Kevin
Braget (Lake Bronson) was
third.
Bill Perdonic (Winnipeg)
would make it clean Mani-
toba sweep in the four cylin-
ders, with Jim Mullholland
(Winnipeg) second and Mike
Demchuk (Dufresne) third.
Up next at the Race Park
will be the first-ever stop of
the Advantage RV Modified
tour Aug. 16 featuring some
of the best Modified drivers
WISSOTA has to offer.
Also racing with the Mod-
ifieds will be the WISSOTA
midwest modifieds, WIS-
SOTA streets, pure stocks

Central Plains American
Legion baseball tournament
was completed Monday at
Jack Williams Stadium in
Fargo, N.D., where eight
teams had been gathered
since Thursday for a double-
elimination affair that fea-
tured qualifiers from
Minnesota, North Dakota,
Nebraska, Iowa and South
Dakota.
Omaha Westside defied
odds by losing a first round
game, then coming all the
way back in the loser-out
bracket to win its first Cen-
tral Plains title since 2000.
Monday afternoon, the
Westside squad beat Omaha
rival Creighton 3-0 in the
championship play-in match-
up for the right to face the St.
Cloud Chutes in the title
game that night.
Omaha Westside won that
encounter 5-3 and will take a
56-5 record to the 2014
American Legion World Se-
ries Aug. 14-19 in Shelby,
N.C.
St. Cloud, the Minnesota
state runner-up, finished 27-
6. The Chutes were unbeaten
in the tournament until los-
ing to Omaha Westside 16-6
Sunday, but the way the
tournament was structured,
St. Cloud had already been
assured a spot in the next-
day championship game.

nine 3x3 boxes. To solve a sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9
must fill each row, column and box. Each number can appear
only once in each row, column and box. You can figure out the
order in which the numbers will appear by using the numeric
clues already provided in the boxes. The more numbers you
name, the easier it gets to solve the puzzle!

Deer, wolf lottery
application has a
Sept. 4 deadline
Those who want to har-
vest antlerless deer through-
out much of Minnesota this
hunting season are reminded
they must apply by Thurs-
day, Sept. 4.
Antlerless deer permits
are issued by lottery. Many
deer hunting permit areas
that have not been in the lot-
tery classification in recent
years are in that classifica-
tion this year. “The message
to deer hunters is to review
the hunting and trapping
regulation book now,” said
Paul Telander, DNR wildlife
section chief. “That way,
you’ll know whether where
you hunt requires entering a
lottery to harvest antlerless
deer.”
Hunters who want to par-
ticipate in special firearm
deer hunts need to apply for
permits that are issued by
lottery, and the application
deadline is Sept. 4. More in-
formation on deer permit
areas and special hunts is in
the DNR hunting regulations
handbook, found online at
www.mndnr.gov/hunting/dee
r.
Wolf licenses are also is-
sued by lottery. Wolf hunters
and trappers must apply by
Sept. 4. Information on wolf
hunting is available on the
DNR website at
w w w . m n d n r . g o v /
hunting/wolf. Wolf manage-
ment information is avail-
able at www.mndnr.gov/

Editorial opinion published under this head ing is intended to stimulate thinking and discussion among our readers. Unless speci fied other wise, the editorials are written by Editor Dave Hill
and do not represent opinion of other staff members. Opinions in items from other publications may not coincide with the editor’s own views but are offered for their general interest.
Sen. Amy Klobuchar con-
tinued to call for action to
crack down on deceptive cell
phone cramming practices
that cost consumers hun-
dreds of millions of dollars in
damages every year. At a
Commerce Committee hear-
ing, Klobuchar said that
while the FCC has taken
important steps to combat
predatory cramming prac-
tices, those actions haven’t
included protections for the
growing number of con-
sumers who are going wire-
less. Klobuchar said more
needs to be done to protect
consumers from cramming
as payment technology
evolves.
“Predatory cell phone
cramming practices are cost-
ing consumers hundreds of
millions in phantom charges
that are buried in the fine
print of their bills,”
Klobuchar said. “While the
FCC and the FTC have
taken steps to crack down on
these deceptive practices,
the FCC’s regulatory actions
haven’t included protections
for wireless consumers. With
more and more households
cutting the cord on their
landline phones, the agen-
cies need to step up to the
plate and do more to prevent
crammers from sticking con-
sumers with costly charges
they never signed off on.”
Witnesses at the hearing
included: The Honorable
Terrell McSweeny,
Commissioner, Federal
Trade Commission; The
Honorable William Sorrell,
Attorney General, State of
Vermont; Travis LeBlanc,
acting chief, Enforcement
Bureau, Federal
C o m m u n i c a t i o n s
Commission; and Michael
Altschul, senior vice presi-
dent and general counsel,
CTIA - The Wireless
Association.
"Cramming" comes in
many forms, but it typically
refers to "mystery charges"
buried in the details of a con-
sumer's phone bill.
Crammers trick consumers
by pretending to offer some-
thing for "free" but then
apply charges to consumers'
phone bills. The monthly
charges are listed with
vague descriptions, so con-
sumers often do not detect
the unauthorized charges
for months.
Klobuchar has been a
leader in the fight to protect
consumers from unautho-
rized charges on their wire-
less bills. Klobuchar success-
fully pushed Verizon, AT&T
and CenturyLink to stop
cramming charges on land-
line phone bills, and after
Klobuchar urged officials to
crack down on cell phone
cramming, the FTC took
enforcement action against
Wise Media, LLC.
Klobuchar also cosponsored
legislation that was recently
signed into law that would
legalize cell phone unlock-
ing, allowing consumers to
keep their same devices
when switching phones.
With cell phone thefts
surging across the country,
Klobuchar earlier this year
also introduced legislation
requiring carriers to provide
kill switch technology that
allows consumers to wipe
personally identifiable infor-
mation from their device
and make it inoperable to
thieves. After Klobuchar
began advocating for kill
switches, wireless compa-
nies – including Apple,
Google, AT&T, and Verizon –
announced a new commit-
ment to make kill switch
technology available on
smartphones.
Many issues face law
enforcement agencies,
but the evidence storage
locker and procedures
for checking in and out
evidence are extremely
important. I don’t
understand everything
that this entails, but I
know that evidence
must be collected, han-
dled and kept in a fash-
ion that maintains the
nature of the evidence
at all stages - from the
day it is taken into cus-
tody to the day it leaves
custody.
Local law enforcement
officials don’t need a lec-
ture from me or anyone
else about evidentiary
procedure. They under-
stand the issue better
than most of us and also
know where the fault
lies in a recent incident
in which several
firearms were removed
from the locker and one
remains missing. Those
involved regret that it
happened, and officials
have taken steps to
make sure it doesn’t
happen again. Yet, the
community deserves
answers, and believes
the standard operating
procedures for the han-
dling and storage must
be revisited and rein-
forced. It is also the
responsibility of elected
officials to exercise their
oversight responsibility
and follow through with
the recommendations to
make sure these types of
incidents don’t happen
again.
It seems that one of
the issues that needs to
be addressed is space.
Pennington County com-
missioners are begin-
ning to examine the
options - one of which
might be locating a lock-
er in the Law
Enforcement Center
annex. City officials
have also been dis-
cussing this issue. I can
see that this also might
be an opportunity to
bring together those
individuals, such as the
county attorney, who
have an obvious stake in
the outcome of this
issue, and discuss other
issues regarding law
enforcement.
An evidence storage
locker is a fairy complex
issue. Any new evidence
storage locker will have
to address security con-
cerns of non-biological
and biological material,
and the prospect that
evidence may have to be
stored for longer periods
of time as cases make
their way through
crowded court calendars.
The obvious result is
that a new evidence
storage lockers could be
very expensive.
Whatever is done, this
is one area where the
City Council and County
Board need to continue
to work together … even
if there’s dissension in
the ranks.
There are two times
every year when I wish
I had a motorcycle. This
is one of those times.
August’s dry, warm
breath is an ideal time
of year for motocyclists.
And to be honest,
August always reminds
me of the motorcycle
rally in the Black Hills
where I grew up. What
a great time to be rid-
ing.
I’m brought back to
Earth by the reports of
injuries and fatalities.
Motorcycleaccident.org,
states that motorcyclists
are 35 times more likely
to experience a deadly
accident on the road
than those in passenger
cars. Now, every motor-
cyclist in the region is
wondering why I would
scare their loved ones
with such statstics, but
honestly, the purpose is
to alert motorists of
your presence on the
roads.
The Legal Examiner
in Minneapolis wrote in
2013 that “it’s amazing
how many cases we get
from people making
turns in front of or into
motorcycles.” Making a
simple left turn in front
of a motorcycle is one of
the leading causes of
accidents. According to
this story, the typical
reasons motorists don’t
see motorcycles include:
they aren’t familiar with
them, so they don’t
think to look for them;
riders typically wear
dark colors and can eas-
ily blend into the back-
ground; motorcycles are
smaller than other vehi-
cles so they are difficult
to spot; and the smaller
size and single head-
light on the motorcycle
makes it more difficult
for other drivers to
judge a rider’s speed
and distance.
Motorists need to
remember to treat
motorcyclists with the
respect and courtesy
afforded other motorists.
And they need to
observe and obey all
traffic laws, signs and
signals.
Keep
rural
towns
healthy
Sen. Amy Klobuchar, vice
chairperson of the U.S.
Congress Joint Economic
Committee, released a new
report highlighting the eco-
nomic importance of keep-
ing America’s rural commu-
nities healthy. While many
rural hospitals have been
recognized for providing
high-quality care, expand-
ing access to quality health
care remains a challenge in
many parts of the country.
Klobuchar’s report shows
that rural areas have only
54 specialists for every
100,000 residents, com-
pared to 134 for every
100,000 in urban areas. The
report also shows patients
living in rural areas must
travel greater distances to
see doctors, with over 40
percent of rural residents
having to travel more than
30 minutes to a hospital.
The report highlights the
economic importance of
ensuring rural communities
have access to quality
health care and outlines key
policy priorities to improve
access, including protecting
the Critical Access Hospital
program, funding programs
that attract doctors to rural
areas, and expanding tele-
health programs.
“Healthy rural communi-
ties lead to healthy local
economies,” Klobuchar said.
“Ensuring that rural com-
munities in Minnesota and
across the country have
access to health care can
help boost worker productiv-
ity, improve quality of life,
and drive economic growth.
This report makes clear that
improving rural Americans’
access to affordable, quality
health care is the right
thing to do for rural commu-
nities and for our economy.”
Klobuchar’s report shows
limited access to health care
in rural areas can have neg-
ative economic impacts.
Rural areas rely on small
businesses and the self-
employed more than urban
economies, and a business
that relies on the health of a
few workers may be more
affected when an employee
gets sick than a larger busi-
ness. Additionally, some
employers may take access
to health services into con-
sideration when deciding
where to locate their busi-
nesses.
The report also outlines a
number of policy proposals
to help ensure that rural
residents can access quality
health care and contribute
to the economy, including
protecting the Critical
Access Hospital program,
funding programs that
attract doctors to rural
areas, enhancing training
for rural health care practi-
tioners in preventive servic-
es, and expanding
Telehealth Resource
Centers and the Telehealth
Network Grant Program.
Klobuchar has long sup-
ported the role Critical
Access Hospitals play in
rural communities.

down on cell phone cramming

POLICIES
Senators Al Franken (D-
Minn.) and Dean Heller (R-
Nev.) announced that their
measures to increase trans-
parency over government
surveillance programs were
included in the USA FREE-
DOM Act, a key National
Security Agency reform bill
introduced in the Senate by
Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.).
Because of Franken and
Heller’s efforts, the USA
FREEDOM Act will help
give the American people the
information they need to
make up their own minds
about the nation’s surveil-
lance programs.
The senators’ transparen-
cy provisions force the gov-
ernment to release the num-
ber of people who have had
their communications infor-
mation collected under these
surveillance programs, and
the number of those people
who were likely Americans.
And they would also give
American companies greater
flexibility to tell their cus-
tomers approximately how
many of them were caught
up in government surveil-
lance requests. Combined,
these provisions will give
Americans a way to verify
for themselves that bulk col-
lection is, in fact, over.
“Americans understand
that we need to give due
weight to privacy, on the one
hand, and national security,
on the other,” said Franken.
“But when they lack even a
rough sense of the scope of
the government’s surveil-
lance programs, they have
no way to know if the gov-
ernment is getting that bal-
ance right. There needs to be
more transparency. Our pro-
visions will let the American
people get the information
they need to hold their gov-
ernment accountable.”
Said Heller, “The govern-
ment has grossly over-
reached with its surveillance
practices, and as a result,
Americans’ distrust of their
own government continues
to grow. Congress can take
immediate steps to fix that
by increasing transparency
and improving reporting
practices. I’m extremely
pleased that my colleagues
have been willing to work
with me and Sen. Franken
to include our provisions in
the latest draft. More must
be done, and the USA
Freedom Act is a compre-
hensive approach that would
end bulk data collection
practices and help restore
privacy rights to our nation’s
citizens. I hope that the
Senate can move swiftly to
vote on this bill.”
Franken and Heller intro-
duced the Surveillance
Transparency Act in 2013 to
expand and improve ongoing
government reporting about
programs under the PATRI-
OT Act and the Foreign
Intelligence Surveillance Act
that have been the subject of
controversy.
While both the House and
Senate versions of the USA
FREEDOM Act included
transparency provisions
modeled after Surveillance
Transparency Act, many of
these provisions were
dropped in the run-up to the
House’s passage of the bill.
The senators successfully
fought to get them back into
the final Senate bill.
Franken, chairman of the
Judiciary Subcommittee on
Privacy, Technology, and the
Law, is a strong advocate of
increased transparency in
government surveillance
programs. In 2011 and 2012,
he cosponsored legislation to
ensure greater oversight
and transparency around
federal surveillance pro-
grams. When these meas-
ures did not pass, Franken
voted against reauthorizing
key NSA surveillance pro-
grams created under the
PATRIOT Act and the
Foreign Intelligence
Surveillance Amendments
Act.
Heller is an original
cosponsor of the USA FREE-
DOM Act. He also testified
at a hearing of the Senate
Judiciary Subcommittee on
Privacy, Technology, and the
Law on behalf of the
Surveillance Transparency
Act of 2013.

“The social given by the Willing Workers of the Union
church at the home of T. J. Sumpter Saturday evening was

Thief River Falls, addressed the audience. A program was
also rendered after which lunch was served. The ladies of

Gophers Win Another
“Last Sunday on the local grounds the Gophers again
carried off the long end of the score when they defeated
Brooks 5 to 1. The game was fast and full of pep from start
to finish. Up to the sixth inning the score stood 2 to 1 in
favor of the home boys, when the visitors loosened up a tri-
fle and the locals pushed three additional men over the pan
before the game was called. Smith pitched an exceptional-
ly good game and the support given him was air tight.”
From the Editorial Page
[First mention of World War I in the local papers]
“If the European armies hit it up lively, it will take
about $5,000,000 a day to pay the piper. At ‘five percent’
that would buy a hundred million perfectly good smokes.
Stop the war.” [Between the last week of July 1914 and the
end of the first week of August, Austria-Hungary declared
war on Serbia and Russia; Germany declared war on
Russia and France and invaded Belgium; and, England
declared war on Germany because of the invasion of
Belgium. World War I had begun.]
“There is still hope for the Germans, providing the
Pankhursts and their band of militant followers do not
take a hand in the game.” [“Pankhursts” was a nickname
for women who were suffragettes and wanted to be allowed
to vote and have equal rights with men.]
Local Birdmen Will Navigate Sky
A. Froseth and James Piprew Assembling Modern
Aeroplane at Field on North Main Avenue
Trial Flight Will Be Made This Evening
Bi-Plane Equipped with Powerful 60 H.P. Motor --
Has Been Flown Successfully in Dakota
“A. Froseth and James Piprew, mechanics for the
Tessum Seed, Grain and Supply Company’s garage, are
today assembling a modern aeroplane on the field opposite
the Poston residence on Main avenue north and, if condi-
tions are favorable, a trial flight will be made this evening.
“The plane’s wings are 25 feet in length and the
machine is equipped with a powerful four-cylinder, 60
horse power Elbridge aeroplane motor. The entire
machine, with the exception of the engine, was built by
Froseth at Grand Forks. When it was first flown in Dakota,
it remained in the air seven minutes and reached an alti-
tude of 1,800 feet.
“The machine is made after the three successful types
of flying machines. It has Farnam wings, Wright running
gear and standard Curtis controls. It is a larger machine
than the one used by McGuire in his flights at the fair
grounds last week.”
Library Plans Ready
May Be Seen at Architect’s Office or at Public
Library
“Architect J. C. Lutz has completed the plans and
specifications for Thief River Falls’ new Carnegie library

and St. Paul. On the 26th of this month the local library
commission will receive separate bids on general contract,
heating contract, plumbing contract, and electrical con-
tract work for the building. According to the specifications,
all contractors who bid on the work will be required to fur-
nish a certified check covering ten per cent of the contract
price of their bid.”
Germantown Bank to Move
Site Purchased at Goodridge -- Will Be Renamed
Farmers State Bank
“The Germantown State bank which is now located at
Germantown has purchased lots in the new townsite at
Goodridge and will be removed there as soon as its new
quarters are ready for occupancy. It will be renamed the
Farmers State Bank of Goodridge.”
Depot Plans Drawn
“J. C. Lutz has completed the plans for the first depot
on the Minnesota Northwestern Electric Railway that will
be built at the town of Goodridge. The dimensions of the
building are 16 by 44 feet. It will be built of wood and fin-
ished in wood and stucco.”
Flower Bed Prizes Awarded

of City
“The committee from the Woman’s club that last week
inspected the flower gardens that were planted and cared
for by the school children of the city during the past sum-
mer, met yesterday afternoon and awarded the prizes.
“The original plan contemplated only three or four
prizes but there were so many well cared for gardens that
eleven first prizes of $1 each and 27 seconds of 50 cents

“The winners of the first prizes were: Ruth Ringham,
Lulu Cook, Mable Cook, Gida Gilbertson, Thelma
Gilbertson, Ambrose Zeh, Mary Parenteau, Arleen Herron,

The Thief River Falls
Public School’s Food Service
Department is pleased to
announce that this year’s
Application for Educational
Benefits can be filled out
online at www.lunchapplica-
tion.com. This form needs to
be filled out each year to
qualify for free or reduced
price meals.
Entering the information
required for the application
online will make the process
more efficient both for appli-
cant and the school district
as well as keep the informa-
tion even more secure with
less handling of the paper
document.
Also new are funds from
the Minnesota Legislature
that will pay for all meals
this school year for students
whose families qualify at the
reduced price level. This
makes both breakfast and
lunch free to those students
as well as those whose fami-
lies qualified at the free
level.
As in the past, paper
application forms will be
sent to all students’ homes
with a notice to parents or
guardians. To apply for free
or reduced price meals,
households must fill out the
application, either online or
by returning the paper docu-
ment to the school.
Additional copies are avail-
able at the principal's office
in each school or the District
Service Center office or on
the Thief River Falls Public
Schools website at
www.trf.k12.mn.us under
the District tab. The infor-
mation provid ed on the

Sen. Stumpf appointed to
Blue Ribbon Committee
Sen. LeRoy Stumpf ’s
(DFL-Plummer) 12 years of
experience as the Senate’s
Higher Education
Committee chairperson will
be put to good use during his
appointment to the just-
launched Blue Ribbon
Committee. The newly
formed committee launched
by Gov. Mark Dayton last
week aims at enhancing the
national prominence of the
University of Minnesota
Medical School. The commit-
tee will work on forming
strategies and investments
to ensure the state’s medical
school is a national leader in
medical training, research
and innovation.
“I have been able to wit-
ness first-hand just how tal-
ented and top-notch the
University of Minnesota
Medical School faculty and
staff are at educating their
students and caring for their
patients. It’s an honor to be
appointed to the Blue
Ribbon Committee alongside
so many other smart and
dedicated health care lead-
ers across the state,” said
Stumpf.
The Blue Ribbon
Committee is made up of
University leaders, health
system and other private
sector leaders, legislators,
and others. The governor
has asked the committee to
provide a report with specif-
ic policy and budget recom-
mendations to be considered
during the upcoming 2015
session. The recommenda-
tions will be focused on four
key goals, which include
sustaining the university’s
national leadership in
research and innovation,
expanding the school’s clini-
cal services and addressing
the state’s changing health
care needs.
Senate Majority Leader
Tom Bakk (DFL-Cook)
appointed Stumpf to the
committee; he discusses why
the Senate’s senior-most
member was a natural
choice.
“I’m confident that Sen.
Stumpf will be an invaluable
asset to this newly formed
committee as it develops its
legislative recommendations
ahead of the 2015 session,”
said Bakk. “Sen. Stumpf is a
tireless advocate for the
advancement of statewide
higher education opportuni-
ties, he understands the role
the Legislature can play in
enhancing the U of M’s
Medical School and making
sure it prepares tomorrow’s
doctors and health care
providers to care for
patients in every corner of
our state.”
Producers still have time
to apply for loan program
U.S. Department of
Agriculture Minnesota
Farm Service Agency
Executive Director Debra
Crusoe has announced that
farmers and ranchers still
have time to apply for low
interest 2014 loans available
through FSA’s Direct Farm
Ownership Program. The
deadline to submit applica-
tions is Tuesday, Sept. 30.
Eligible producers can
borrow up to $300,000 in
direct farm ownership loans
to buy or enlarge a farm,
construct new farm build-
ings or improve structures,
pay closing costs, or promote
soil and water conservation
and protection. The interest
rate on select loans can be as
low as 1.5 percent with up to
40 years to repay.
“This is an extraordinary
opportunity for more farm-
ers and ranchers to get low-
interest loans to start their
first farm, or expand an
existing family farm,” said
Crusoe. “There are no back-
logs or waiting for funding.
If you’ve dreamed about
starting a farm, or if you’re
looking to strengthen your
farm, we want to help.”
FSA encourages all inter-
ested applicants to apply for
direct farm ownership loans.
For more information about
the program and other loans
administered by FSA, visit

Drivers cited during speed
enforcement campaign
Some of the excuses offi-
cers hear for speeding may
sound funny, but the results
of speeding can be deadly
serious. Preliminary reports
show 16,926 motorists were
ticketed for driving at illegal
or unsafe speeds during the
July enforcement campaign.
Excuses ranged from “I am
rushing to the vet with my
sick cat” to “I have to go to
the bathroom and am trying
to get to a gas station.”
Speeding is never safe
and is a contributing factor
in nearly one out of every
four fatal crashes in
Minnesota over the last 10
years. The Department of
Public Safety Office of
Traffic Safety coordinated
an enhanced enforcement
and education program July
10 – 27 to help drivers rec-
ognize the importance of
obeying the speed limit. The
preliminary citation infor-
mation comes from 310 law
enforcement agencies across
the state.
Reporting agencies cited
at least 14 drivers for travel-
ing more than 100 mph dur-
ing the 18-day campaign.
One driver was clocked at
125 mph. In Pennington
County, the Minnesota State
Patrol clocked a driver trav-
eling 112 mph.
“The pain of a speeding
ticket does not compare to
the physical and emotional
pain you can experience
from a speed-related crash,”
said Donna Berger, OTS
director. “Law enforcement
hears all kinds of excuses,
but there is no excuse to put
you and others in harm’s
way by speeding.”
In the last three years
(2011-13), illegal and unsafe
speed contributed to 213
fatal crashes, 235 deaths
and 666 serious injuries.
Dangers and
consequences of
speeding
Summer is the deadliest
season on Minnesota roads,
largely due to motorists
traveling at faster, unsafe
speeds – with clear roads
giving drivers a false sense
of security. Officials remind
motorists that with speed-
ing, there’s a higher likeli-
hood of losing control, less
time to avoid a crash and a
greater chance of getting
killed or seriously injured.
Three seconds is the
safe following distance
Motorists should keep a
three-second following dis-
tance to allow for safe stop-
ping and reaction to other
vehicles. It takes more than
the length of a football field
to stop when traveling at 60
mph.
