Hides-for-Habitat
With the archery deer hunt-
ing season just about to start
and the firearms deer hunting
season not too far away, once
again this year the Wright
County/West Metro Whitetails
Chapter of the Minnesota Deer
Hunters Association
("MDHA") is pleased to an-
nounce that they will be collect-
ing deer hides around the area
to raise money to purchase and
upgrade public hunting land in
Minnesota, as well as for Youth
Hunter Education.
With some of the money
raised last year through the
Hides-for Habitat program, the
Wright County/West Metro
Whitetails sent local kids from
the area to the MDHA's Fork-
horn Camps. At those camps
the kids received their firearms
safety training, along with edu-
cation on hunting ethics, land
stewardship, hunting and out-
doors survival tactics.
The Chapter wants to warn
local hunters not to be fooled by
for-profit hide collectors and
their boxes. The money from
those hides does not go towards
helping to send kids to camp or
to help improve deer habitat in
Minnesota. While those boxes
might be similar to the MDHA's
boxes, make sure you look for
the boxes with the official
MDHA "Hides-for-Habitat"
blaze orange sign on them.
You will find the Chapter's
official Hides-for-Habitat boxes
at the following locations:
Albertville - Center Cut
Meats; Buffalo - Klatt's True
Value Hardware, Buffalo Gun
Club; Corcoran - AK Corners;
Delano - Ault Marine, Delano
Sportsman's Club; Hamel -
Hamel Lumber & Supply;

Heat pump
replacement for
law enforcement
center planned
by John Holler
Correspondent
When the Wright County
Law Enforcement Center was
constructed five years ago, one
of the components that was built
into the system was a geother-
mal system that used the heat
from the ground as part of the
jail’s heating system. At the
Sept. 16 meeting of the Wright
County Board, the commission-
ers were posed with an expen-
sive question of whether to
repair or replace one of the five
heat pumps before the onset of
winter.
A design flaw in the system
has resulted in numerous prob-
lems with the heat pumps that
required numerous site visits
from the manufacturer, both dur-
ing the warranty period and the
two years since. County Coordi-
nator Lee Kelly said that the sys-
tem has started to cost Wright
County money to repair so the
choices were to either continue
repairing the system when it
broke down or to replace one of
the defective pumps.

Not a whole lot of fishing information has come my way the past
week and I don’t have a handle on where the sunfish are this time of
the year. I did get a hot tip on walleye angling, but I was sworn to
secrecy so that doesn’t help a whole lot either. My brother, Charles,
and his neighbor, Wayne, who both live on Buchanan Lake near Ot-
tertail fished Lake of the Woods for three days out of Prothero’s Re-
sort on the Northwest Angle last week. He said fishing wasn’t as
good as they would have liked, but they caught walleyes to eat and
limits to bring home so who’s to complain. My suggestion to anglers
is to get out this week while the weather is still mild. The fall lawn
work will always be there tomorrow!

The urge to try grouse hunting finally got the best of Daryl Hen-
nen and myself last week and we made a half-day hunt Thursday to
a couple of spots we were familiar with north of Motley. I was sur-
prised to see our breakfast stop, Mr. Ed’s, in Motley closed when
we went through there about 1:30 p.m. I’m a sucker for sweet rolls
and they always had trays of cinnamon and caramel rolls on the
counter and I seldom got by them without including one in my
breakfast order. Anyway, the first spot we hunted with Daryl’s Brit-
tany-Springer cross, Coco, and my English Setter, Vanna, has a
groomed trail. It didn’t produce any birds until one flushed off the
ground as we were nearly back to our starting point. I heard it and
Hennen saw it, but he didn’t get a shot off. Our next spot, a desig-
nated Hunter’s Walking Trail (HWT), was near the First Crow Wing.
There was plenty of clover on the trail, but we didn’t see any of those
green berries the grouse seem to like. We had four flushes off that
trail which both of us heard. I didn’t see any and blamed that on the
dense cover. Hennen saw one, but again, didn’t get a shot off. I
didn’t get any points on birds out of Vanna although she covered a
lot of ground. Coco also pointed and would get birdie, but ruffed
grouse seldom sit still, and neither dog got any flushes. We had one
deer dart across the trail behind us after we heard it running. Neither
of us figured we would have been quick enough to get a shot off had
it been in season. Anyway, it was fun watching the dogs hunt, hear-
ing some flushes, and enjoying the other activity in the woods. We
came across this tree which a beaver apparently has been working
on in the evening hours. Our first impression was why would a
beaver be cutting down a large tree like that when it was so far from
the Crow Wing river. But when we crested the bank and saw the
river we had our answer. We should have taken a right when we hit
a T on the trail instead of a left. It cost us about an extra half-mile
of hiking. The trees are showing color and should be at their peak
within 10 days. On the drive home we spotted a covey of six Wood-
cock and another single in the gravel road, something neither of us
had seen before. Other wildlife was a flock of geese just outside of
Motley and a large flock of sandhill cranes as we headed north on
Highway 64. We didn’t see any turkeys and very few ducks. Hennen
said the two grouse he saw were adults which leads us to believe the
grouse in that area didn’t have much of a hatch. It’s not unusual to
see a covey in the early part of the season and all we saw and flushed
were singles. The answer is to find a more populated grouse area for
our next hunt.

In my ongoing mission to
bring culture to the north shore
of the middle bay of Maple
Lake, here are my comments
on the opening concert of the
St. Paul Chamber Orchestra.
I admit to almost complete
ignorance regarding classical
music, which means I can give
an unbiased review of things.
Most of my comments concern
the audience, their sleep habits,
their clothing, and such. Music
is secondary, but almost un-
avoidable at concerts.
Running Bear and Little
White Dove were there. He
wore his drover's hat with a
small fashionable feather in it,
and fringed leather jacket,—
just right for a classical event.
She was less traditionally clad,
with boots that indicated her
ethnicity.
Buffalo Bill was there, along
with the Lady in Red and
Johnny Appleseed with his
shoulder bag full of apples, pre-
sumably. A rabbi showed up, as
did many really old people and
a few bored kids. Lots of peo-
ple didn't treat this as a costume
party and looked relatively nor-
mal.
A lady sitting next to us
commented on the number of
young musicians, a result of the
salary conflicts of a year ago.
She said she thought many of
them were too young to drive
themselves. We looked for a
row of mommies waiting for
their musician kids after the
concert, but there were none.
They were probably catching
public transportation. A number
of the old musicians were still
there, with their pointy black
shoes. They all played real
good.
Two of Beethoven's sym-
phonies were presented; his #8
first and #7 next. Evidently se-
quence doesn't matter. In be-
tween was a thing
commissioned by SPCO that
showed off the new gold
wheels on the grand piano. The
piano player made his fingers
move really fast. It kept us
awake. We enjoyed Beethoven
and the gold wheels.
Beethoven seemed to think
his eighth was much better than
his seventh, and commented to
a student of his about the fickle
Viennese public when they
seemed to like the seventh.
Well, okay, but what do I know
about nineteenth century Vi-
enna? Sounds like Ludwig was
a little too crabby for my tastes
anyway. The notes about this
stuff leave me cold, but I hadn't
dressed for the chilly weather.
And, as I said, I don't know
much about classical music.
Next year the SPCO seems
to plan more stuff in St. Paul.
We just might take a look at
Buffalo or St. Cloud for our
culture instead. Don't give up
on us. Culture is important, I
think.
The
Retiree
by Jerry Hoem
Do we really need lawyers?
Frequently we see surveys
in the news about the various
professions and occupations
and how the public views them.
A 2010 Gallup poll rated
nurses, military officers, and
pharmacists 71-81% high or
very high for honesty and
ethics, while members of Con-
gress, business executives, and
lawyers rated only 9-17% high
or very high. They were just
above car salespeople.
I have seen surveys that
while a high percentage of
those surveyed have a low re-
gard for lawyers in general, a
much higher percentage have a
high regard for their own
lawyer. So why do we need
lawyers anyway?
There is a fictitious land
where there are no lawyers. I’ll
call it The Land Free of Laws.
No lawyers are needed because
there are no laws. Each citizen
behaves as they want, without
regard for others.
In this land all of the prop-
erty is owned by the govern-
ment and no citizen can own
property. As a result there is no
need for a lawyer to draft con-
tracts, deeds, leases, security
agreements, or loan documents.
Since no one owns anything,
there is nothing to leave as an
inheritance to one’s children, so
no need for a lawyer to draft a
will or trust document. What-
ever you have is owned by the
government and goes back to it
when you die.
In The Land Free of Laws,
everyone drives automobiles
however they like; in fact, any
child can operate a 2-ton vehi-
cle with abandon. Anyone in-
jured or killed as a result has no
right to recover damages from
the responsible party.
As I said above, citizens in
The Land Free of Laws have no
property rights; therefore
everyone is free to take from
others as they wish. Of course,
since the government owns
everything, they are stealing
from the government. That’s
probably a disincentive to theft.
(Think Siberia.)
There are other names for
The Land Free of Laws: the
Wild West in the 1870s in parts
of the U.S., or present day So-
malia, Syria, or Iraq. Places
with no law and no effective
government have no need for
lawyers. These are places
where people live with no
hope, with roving bands of out-
laws with weapons, where peo-
ple are maimed, raped, and
killed with reckless abandon,
with no justice against the
wrongdoers.
French lawyer Ronald Sokol
put well the need for lawyers in
a 2006 article in the New York
Times:
It is a truth universally ac-
knowledged that a person in
possession of troubles must be
in want of a lawyer. Yet while
no one would claim lawyers to
be an endangered species,
many devoutly wish it to be so.
. . .
I used to puzzle over why
lawyers should be simultane-
ously much sought after and
much maligned.
The solution lies hidden in
the work itself. It comes with
the onset of conflict or when
fear of loss or hope of profit
grows too acute. Lawyers
delve into the nitty-gritty of all
the human problems one can
imagine and some that defy
imagination. They are paid to
extricate clients from the finan-
cial and emotional nets in
which they have become en-
meshed or to find ways to es-
cape being netted.

License Address Change
Question: How long does a
person have to change their dri-
ver’s license address?
Answer: It depends on the
circumstance. I will name some
situations.
• If you’re already living in
Minnesota and move to a new
address in the state, the law re-
quires that you apply for a new
driver's license within 30 days
of changing your address.
• If you have a valid driver's
license or instruction permit
from another state, you have 60
days after becoming a Min-
nesota resident to obtain your
Minnesota license or permit.
• If you have a valid “com-
mercial driver's license” (CDL)
from another state, you have 30
days to obtain your Minnesota
license after moving here.
• You do not need a Min-
nesota license if you work for
the United States Armed Forces
or are a family member of
someone in the Armed Forces
stationed in Minnesota, and
hold a valid out-of-state dri-
ver's license.
• If you are on active duty
with the U.S. Armed Forces
and have a valid Minnesota dri-
ver's license, you are not re-
quired to renew your license
until you are discharged, re-
gardless of your length of serv-
ice. This law also applies to the
spouses of those on active duty,
if the spouse does not reside in
Minnesota during the active
duty period.
A portion of state statutes
was used with permission from
the Office of the Revisor of
Statutes. If you have any ques-
tions concerning traffic related
laws or issues in Minnesota,

People want to believe in jus-
tice. Justice is what they hope
for, but their hopes are almost
never fully realized. Expecta-
tions are not fully met, and
hence justice never fully
achieved.
And so the lawyer who fails
to put back together the shat-
tered hopes is an easy target.
. . .
If life is not to become a tale
told by an idiot, signifying noth-
ing, there must be rules. As
prosperity renders life more di-
verse, so laws grow in number
and complexity. If we value
growth, then we must have
those who write, study, and in-
terpret the rules. And so one
might justly say, unhappy is the
land that needs no lawyers.
So why do we need lawyers?
We need lawyers to write laws
that govern human activity in an
organized and somewhat pre-
dictable fashion. We need
lawyers to enforce the rights of
businesses and individuals with
respect to their property, per-
sonal liberty, health, and safety.
We need lawyers to plead the
cause of people who are harmed
by the actions of government or
other citizens and who will be
their voice in the courts of jus-
tice. We need lawyers to be the
voice of those who have no
voice: children, the infirm, the
elderly, and the disenfranchised.
We need lawyers to be our voice
before the courts, to plead our
cause, to seek justice.
As Sokol said, unhappy is
the land that needs no lawyers.

It's an excruciating time for
Christopher Rossing's family and
friends. There have been no signs
of the 25-year-old who they be-
lieve is dead. There are but two
tangible items in this tragedy:
There's one man in jail charged
with kidnapping, and there's a lit-
tle town with a big secret.
Rossing family still looking
and praying for closure
“At the time those were in-
stalled, they were viewed as state
of the art technology,” Kelly
said. “They’re off warranty, so
all repairs that have been made
the last couple of years haven’t
been covered by the warranty.”
The problem came to a head
last winter, one of the coldest
winters on record in Minnesota.
The pumps were forced to run at
full capacity for much of the
winter to keep temperatures from
dropping too low, but it made the
point that the system needed to
be upgraded.
“I don’t think the winter we
had last year was the death nail
in the coffin,” Kelly said. “Over
the years, they’ve aged and bro-
ken down. But, last winter did
test the capabilities of the system
and it was a concern because
there were fears that the jail
could get extremely cold.”
The replacement pump is a
couple generations newer tech-
nology, but is able to be fitted
into the current system that
won’t require re-piping of the
system. At a cost of almost
$94,000, it is hoped that the re-
placement of the defective pump
will fix the problem without hav-
ing to replace the other four
pumps, but Kelly added that the
situation will have to be moni-
tored because there may be re-
currences of the problem.
“At this time, it doesn’t look
we’re going to have to replace
the other four, but that possibility
exists down the line,” Kelly said.
“We’re hoping that by replacing
the one pump that is currently
down that the system will run
more efficiently and we won’t
run into these problems again.”
In other items on the Sept. 16
agenda, the board:
* Laid over setting the annual
Truth In Taxation hearing date
because Commissioner Christine
Husom was not at the Sept. 16
meeting. The board was looking
to set the date for 6:30 p.m. Tues-
day, Dec. 2, but laid it over in
case Husom had a potential con-
flict. Truth in Taxation hearings
are required to get public input
prior to approving the final
budget and levy for the following
year. This year the meeting must
be held after 6 p.m. and can be
conducted any time between
Nov. 25 and Dec. 29.
* Tabled for one week discus-
sion of the Tri-County Regional
Forensic Laboratory report be-
cause Husom represents the
board on that committee and her
input into the discussion was
needed.
* Approved letters of support
from the county board for the I-
94 west corridor expansion proj-
ect and the Hwy. 55 turn-lane
project to the Minnesota Depart-
ment of Transportation’s Corri-
dors of Commerce program.
* Held a public hearing con-
cerning a land swap being pro-
posed by the St. Michael-Al-
bertville and Elk River School
Districts. The exchange of land
would move some properties
from one school district to the
other and is centered around a
development that is currently
under construction. Nobody
from the public attended to speak
for or against the project.
* Referred the report from
Buhler Inc. to the building com-
mittee. The company was hired
to assess the value of the com-
posting machinery at the former
compost facility to see what
value it might have to be sold or
scrapped. The facility hasn’t
been operational for almost 20
years and there is no further use
for the mothballed machinery.
* Approved a claim of $1,437
from the consulting firm of Mad-
den Galanter & Hansen for union
negotiation work done for the
county in August.

Here’s How It Works:
Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid, broken down into
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!

Rossing's family and friends
have begged for help and
searched for weeks, but still no
signs of the 25-year-old known
as Uncle to Jasmine and Paris.
On Sunday night, family and
friends brought in a little candle-
light and held a vigil for Rossing,
because these have been dark
days. After searching most of the
day, the vigil was a rare and brief
pause for friends and family. It
was a quiet moment of love in a
town that has been too quiet.
“Tonight let's just bow our heads
and say our own prayers of hope
that we can bring my brother, my
mother's son home so we can put
him to rest like he deserves. And
as a community, help us find the
missing links. Help us bring
Christopher home so our family
can start our grieving process,”
his sister, Deanna Villella, said to
all listening, hopeful ears at the
vigil. They shared tears at the
end of another day with no signs
of Rossing yet again, and the
heart-shaped group of tormented
people who've forgotten what
normal is let the wind blow their
candles out naturally.
Investigators believe BJ Nut-
tall and Rossing got into a fight,
and that Nuttall knocked him out
before taking him somewhere.
Friends and family believe that
there is much more to that story.
It’s been a little over a month
since Rossing disappeared.

There hasn’t been a semifi-
nalist named into the National
Merit Scholarship Program for
quite some time from Maple
Lake, but high school senior
Dan Upcraft of Maple Lake
High School put an end to that.
Upcraft was recently named a
semifinalist in the 60th annual
National Merit Scholarship Pro-
gram.
Officials of the National
Merit Scholarship Corporation
(NMSC) announced the names
of approximately 16,000 semi-
finalists where these academi-
cally talented high school
seniors have an opportunity to
continue in the competition for
some 7,600 National Merit
Scholarships worth about $33
million that will be offered next
spring. To be considered for a
Merit Scholarship award, semi-
finalists must fulfill several re-
quirements to advance to the
finalist level of the competition.
About 90 percent of the
semifinalists are expected to at-
tain finalist standing, and more
than half of the finalists will
win a National Merit Scholar-
ship, earning the Merit Scholar
title.
NMSC, a not-for-profit or-
ganization that operates without
government assistance, was es-
tablished in 1955 specifically to
conduct the annual National
Merit Scholarship Program.
Scholarships are underwrit-
ten by NMSC with its own
funds and by approximately
440 business organizations and
higher education institutions
that share NMSC’s goals of
honoring the nation’s scholastic
champions and encouraging the
pursuit of academic excellence.
Steps in the 2015
Competition
About 1.4 million juniors in
more than 22,000 high schools
entered the 2015 National Merit
Scholarship Program by taking
the 2013 Preliminary SAT/Na-
tional Merit Scholarship Quali-
fying Test (PSAT/NMSQT),
which served as an initial
screen of program entrants. The
nationwide pool of semifinal-
ists, representing less than one
percent of U.S. high school sen-
iors, includes the highest scor-
ing entrants in each state. The
number of semifinalists in a
state is proportional to the
state’s percentage of the na-
tional total of graduating sen-
iors.
To become a finalist, the
semifinalist and his or her high
school must submit a detailed
scholarship application, in
which they provide information
about the semifinalist’s aca-
demic record, participation in
school and community activi-
ties, demonstrated leadership
abilities, employment, and hon-
ors and awards received. A
semifinalist must have an out-
standing academic record
throughout high school, be en-
dorsed and recommended by a
high school official, write an
essay, and earn SAT scores that
confirm the student’s earlier
performance on the qualifying
test.
From the approximately
16,000 semifinalists, about
15,000 are expected to advance
to the finalist level, and in Feb-
ruary they will be notified of
this designation. All National
Merit Scholarship winners will
be selected from this group of
finalists. Merit Scholar de-
signees are selected on the basis
of their skills, accomplish-
ments, and potential for success
in rigorous college studies,
without regard to gender, race,
ethnic origin, or religious pref-
erence.
National Merit
Scholarships
Three types of National
Merit Scholarships will be of-
fered in the spring of 2015.
Every finalist will compete
for one of 2,500 National
Merit® $2500 Scholarships that
will be awarded on a state-rep-
resentational basis. About
1,000 corporate-sponsored
Merit Scholarship awards will
be provided by approximately
240 corporations and business
organizations for finalists who
meet their specified criteria,
such as children of the grantor’s
employees or residents of com-
munities where sponsor plants
or offices are located. In addi-
tion, about 200 colleges and
universities are expected to fi-
nance some 4,100 college-
sponsored Merit Scholarship
awards for finalists who will at-
tend the sponsor institution.
National Merit Scholarship
winners of 2015 will be an-
nounced in four nationwide
news releases beginning in
April and concluding in July.
These scholarship recipients
will join more than 308,000
other distinguished young peo-
ple who have earned the Merit
Scholar title.

Connecting Links
program seeks mentors for
kids
Would you be interested in mak-
ing a difference in a student’s life?
Or, do you know of students who
would benefit from having mentors
in their life?
Connecting Links is a program
which provides a mentoring oppor-
tunity between an adult volunteer
and identified student in need.
The relationship is intended to
nurture the academic, social and/or
emotional aspects of these students,
resulting in a positive environment
in both the home and school in
which they live and learn.
Mentors are encouraged to meet
weekly with their student. These
meetings can be at school or some-
thing planned outside of school with
parent permission. Activities can
range from playing games, making
projects, and working on assign-
ments, to going somewhere fun or
learning something new.
There is training for anyone in-
terested in becoming involved in the
program on Oct. 23rd at 6:30 p.m.
in the elementary media center.
If you want to learn more about
becoming a mentor or know of a
student who would benefit, please
call or e-mail program coordinator
Celeste Dahlstrom at (320) 963-

Short-call substitute
training is Oct. 2-3,
Nov. 3-4
People who want to teach but
don’t have the full credentials will
have an opportunity to become cer-
tified as short-call substitute teach-
ers under the Minnesota Limited,
Short-Call Substitute program. A 4-
year bachelor degree is required to
qualify.
Resource Training & Solutions
in St. Cloud has announced that it
has coordinated a two-day program
on October 2-3, 2014 or November
3-4, 2014, to prepare individuals to
apply to become short-call substi-
tute teachers.
Under Minnesota law, limited,
short-call substitute teachers li-
censes are granted only if teachers
who hold regular teaching licenses
are not available or if a district is ex-
periencing a hardship in securing a
sufficient number of regularly li-
censed teachers to meet the district¹s
need for short-call substitute teach-
ers. The district superintendent may
request that a short call substitute li-
cense be granted to an individual
who holds a baccalaureate degree
from a college or university that is
accredited by the regional associa-
tion for the accreditation of colleges
and secondary schools. Licensure is
good for two years and must be re-
newed bi-annually.
Training will cover topics such
as the substitute teacher’s role in the
classroom and district, basics of
classroom management and instruc-
tion, basics of child development,
and communication skills.
Registration for the training can
be made by contacting Deb Thomes

Upcraft named semifinalist in the 2015
National Merit® Scholarship Program
Rhonda Carlson’s 3rd
graders head off Pencil Pride
this year by writing about things
that interest them.
Sarah Jensen - I love my
cabin. When I go there with my
Mom we go four wheeling, fish-
ing, ad hiking. At night we build
a fire.
Samuel Hughes - In tackle
football you’ll have to really lis-
ten to your coach. I always am
on time for football practice so I
don’t have to do push-ups. You
must listen to your coach be-
cause if you don’t you are not
going to know what to do during
a football game Remember your
spot on the football field or
you’ll be on the side lines and
it’s not fun there.
MaKenna Wetch - My aunt
and I love the same stuff, like
puppies, kittens, and penguins.
We also like volleyball. When
she comes over we play volley-
ball. My aunt has two puppies.
Their names are Zoe and Emma.
I have a puppy called Ben. Zoe
is bigger than Emma and Ben.
Ben is the biggest, and Emma
and Zoe are sisters and they are
brown.
Chariee Wurm - Once I
went to Florida and it was really
cool. We got to go to Disney
World, Lego Land, and Me-
dieval Times. At Disney World
we say princesses, Mickey
Mouse, and Buss the Light Year.
It was amazing to see them.
Tyler Condon - One day I
was at a friend’s house on his
trampoline and I tried to do a
front flip. I was too close to the
edge and my head went in-be-
tween the springs and I fell off
the trampoline, but I got right
back up on it.
Erikah Maire Hannon - All
about my best friends. Hi my
name is Erika and when I was
five years old and it was my sis-
ter Emily’s birthday she got a
puppy. But she didn’t take good
care of her puppy who she
named Penny so my Mom and
Dad said I could have her. Then
one summer my Mom and Rob
found three kittens and my sister
and I got to keep them. But one
was sick and Penny bit her in the
neck and it died so there was
only two left. I got the boy like
always, and my sister got the girl
kitten. She named her’s Truffles
and I named mine Chowder.
Very soon my Dad took us to the
vet so we could get our kittens
bottles. Truffles and Chowder
got along good pretty fast.
Penny, Chowder, and I had tea
parties and got dressed up. In the
winter I dipped Chowder and
Truffles in a puddle and they
liked it but Chowder ran right up
my back.
Alan Haglin - I like sky div-
ing because it is fun but before
you dive you must make sure
that your parachute does not
have any holes in it. Try to jump
off your roof or car first. Then
you are ready to jump out of the
airplane. When you see the
ground you pull the cord on the
back pack. Then you will float
down slowly. Have Fun!
Charlie Nelson - Sky Diving
is dangerous. If you forget to
check your parachute because if
there is holes in it you will die.
Most important of all look
where you land. If you have a
kid with you make sure that you
make sure not to let them go
without you.
Jeremiah Skreen - I am glad
for the Revolution. It was five
years long and after a long time
the Americans had won the war
and we were free.
Ethan O’Brien - We should
thank the Army for all the things
they do. They fight for our coun-
try. The Army people are strong
so on the 4th of July make sure
to thank all of them and remem-
ber them always.
Marcus Mitchell - Me and
my family like to fish. First we
cast our lines out, then when we
get a bite we yank it in, then we
reel it in. Then when we’re done
we eat them. And then when
we’re done we fish again if we
are still hungry.
Ty Mills - One time I went to
Monster Jam and I got to see
Grave Digger. When we left it
was packed and took forever to
get out. It felt like it took five
hours to get back home.
Kelsey Jude - Once I went
on a trip to Mexico and we got
to swim with the dolphins. We
got to go Zip-Lining too. It was
really fun to go with my friend
Clara. We stayed in a hotel that
had a swimming pool outside
and it had three little waterslides.
We got to swim in the ocean too.
Cole LaFave - I went to a ski
resort with my Dad and Mom
and my sister. I was so hyper I
just wanted to ski. I went to get
some ski boots and some skies
then I went down the hall and
was having a blast!
Joey Spike - One night on
the farm there were baby pigs
getting born. All of them were
really cute. We got to pick them
up. They were so light and some
were twins. They would try to
bite me. In about a month they
were big enough for their own
pen. Then they got big and were
sold.
Daimeyn Floding - One time
Tyler jumped at my house on the
trampoline. He was trying to do
a front-flip and fell off. We had
lots of fun.

Sports Writer
A stalemate was endured be-
tween the Eden Valley-Watkins
Eagles (AA) and the Maple
Lake Irish last Friday in Eden
Valley. This was a matchup be-
tween two top-ten teams in
Class AA. The game went into
the final minutes of the fourth
quarter, until a final run from
quarterback Tony Goelz gave
the Irish an eight-point lead
giving the defense room to
breath with one minute remain-
ing in the fourth quarter. Three
safeties and constant pressure
gave the Eagles their first loss
of the season.
The Irish were playing for
more than victory last Friday.
They played for their uncon-
scious brother, Morgan
Moeller, lying in a hospital bed
at North Memorial Hospital.
Morgan was involved in a terri-
ble car accident early Thursday
morning.
The Irish started the game
receiving the kickoff. Their first
two drives were bogged down
by false starts and amounted to
one first down and two punts.
The Eagles capitalized scoring
twice on two separate drives.
The first came on a quarterback
draw for a 60-yard run for a
touchdown and the second
came off a huge reception from
the Eagle's Desuan James for
30 yards, but was knocked out
of bounds by Cal Redemske.
They later scored making the
score 14-0. Maple Lake's of-
fense had to answer with a
score on the next drive. The
running combo of Redemske
and Dusty Strub put the ball on
the Eagle’s 25. The next play,
Goelz connected with a leaping
Ryan Kalinowski for Maple
Lake's first score of the night.
The Irish opted for a two-point
conversion after the Eagles
jumped off sides, cutting the
deficit 14-8.
As the first quarter came to
an end, the Eagles had the ball
on their own 40 and with poor
tackling from the Irish defense
the Eagles again scored. The
EVW lead increased to 21-8.
However, it would be the last
time Eden Valley would enter
the end zone. On the ensuing
drive, the Irish, led by an audi-
ble calling Goelz, manufac-
tured a 60-yard drive for a
touchdown. The next drive was
nearly identical. The Irish of-
fensive line looked in control
and fresh to push back the
Eagle defense. Also, the combi-
nation of speed and strength of
Redemske and Strub gave the
Irish a chance in the red zone.
Head coach Tim Knudsen
called for pass on fourth and
long. In the clutch, Goelz con-
nected with Kalinowski for
their second touchdown of the
night. The Irish had clawed
back into the game and took the
lead 22-21.
The stalemate ensued
through the last minutes of the
fourth quarter. For the stale-
mate to be a stalemate, the Irish
defense needed to hold on. The
Irish defense did so. The Eagles
quarterback was kept scram-
bling throughout the entire sec-
ond-half. The pressure was put
on by Hunter Hicks, Alex
Toedter and Josh Gindele. The
three only managed one sack,
but created havoc on the Eagle
offense. The secondary also
kept the Eagles’ pass-heavy of-
fense in check. The EVW re-
ceivers were fast and big, one
receiver was listed at 6'6, 230
pounds and another was the
CMC 100 meter champion.
Needless to say the Irish sec-
ondary had their hands full
when the Eagles came under
pressure to score with the clock
running down. They managed
to prevail and get the ball to
their offense, who hadn't scored
since the first half. The Irish of-
fense, led by determination and
a one- point difference, moved
the ball down the field with two
minutes remaining. They found
themselves fourth and three
with 30 seconds left. They
opted to run up the middle,
however, Gabe Hance drew a
false start and moved the ball
back five yards. The Irish
needed to score and not turn the
ball over to the desperate Ea-
gles. The Irish quarterback
called his own number, dodged
some Eagle defenders and leapt
into the end zone.
The Irish, leading by eight,
still needed to hold off the
EVW offense with 30 more
seconds remaining in the game.
The Eagles managed to get the
ball to the 50 with eight sec-
onds left. They decided to
throw the ball to their tallest re-
ceiver, but being heavily cov-
ered by Nate Maas and Cal
Redemske, the two managed to
run the clock down as the EVW
quarterback launched the last
pass. The ball fell incomplete
and the Irish rushed the field
triumphant with a 29-21 win.
"We played a close, tight
game..." Knudsen declared
after his team’s victory, "They
came out fast and we came out
slow, we can't play like that. We
need to always come out fast."
He also added about his injured
player Morgan Moeller, "We
did this for him. We won this
for him. We will give him the
game ball as a present when he
wakes up."
The Irish will play against
Rockford for homecoming on
Friday at 7 p.m.

Irish win in honor of Moeller
On September 19th Maple
Lake’s coach and teacher, Brad
Baumann, was inducted into
the North Branch Area Public
Schools’ Viking Hall of Fame
Class of 2014. Baumann, a
2001 graduate of North Branch
Area High School, is one of the
most decorated athletes in their
school history. Throughout his
career, Baumann participated in
football, basketball and base-
ball, where he earned three let-
ters in football, three letters in
baseball, and four letters in
basketball. He was All-Confer-
ence twice in football and is the
career leader in passing yards,
completions and touchdowns.
Baumann also was All-Confer-
ence in baseball, but it was on
the basketball court that he ex-
celled. He earned All-Confer-
ence honors three times,
All-State honors, Academic
All-State and played in the All-
Star Game his senior year. He
is currently third all-time in
boys basketball scoring and is
career leader in assists and
steals.
The ceremony was held at
halftime at North Branch’s
football game where a recep-
tion was held inviting the com-
munity to socialize with the
hall of fame members. Bau-
mann could not make the cere-
mony due to his dedication to
the Maple Lake football team.
The Irish played the same night
of the ceremony, so Brad’s fa-
ther, Bill, attended in his ab-
sence to support his son
receiving this very high honor.
