Help Maple Lake
area PTAs receive
a $1,000 grant from
Sylvan Learning
As a proud supporter of Na-
tional PTA, Sylvan Learning
Centers in the Maple Lake area
are encouraging all parents to
commit to be the best Chief Ed-
ucation Officers (CEO) they
can be this school year by tak-
ing the Sylvan Learning CEO
Pledge on Facebook. Sylvan
Learning and PTA are both
committed to encouraging par-
ents to play an active role in
their childs education and in-
spiring them to take on the cov-
eted role of CEO this year is
the first step. The pledge also
helps parents support their
local PTA. The five PTAs with
the most CEO pledges by Oc-
tober 24th will receive a $1,000
grant from Sylvan Learning for
2014-2015 school-year initia-
We not only want to en-
courage parents to take the
CEO pledge but also grandpar-
ents, aunts, uncles and mem-
bers of the local community as
they all play a role in a childs
education, said Julia Fitzger-
ald, chief marketing officer at
Sylvan Learning. By commit-
ting to be the best CEOs they
can be, these individuals can
come together to ignite a
lifestyle of learning and set
kids up for academic success
now and in the future.
Sylvan Learning Centers in
the Maple Lake area offer the
following ways Chief Educa-
tion Officers can help their
children succeed academically:
Establish a line of commu-
nication with teachers. Parents
should interact with teachers
early and often throughout the
school year. They should ask
teachers how theyd like to be
communicated with and when
the best times are to call, email,
text or meet in person. Often
times, parents wait until a prob-
lem arises to reach out but that
problem can often be nipped in
the bud long before it becomes
a crisis by keeping the lines of
communication open.

It was a perfect night for a football game, how-
ever, there was an air of sadness at Fridays home-
coming festivities. The Maple Lake Irish football
team considers themselves a brotherhood, and the
team was missing one of their brothers. Morgan
Moeller, #69, was in a terrible car accident on Sep-
tember 18 and has been hospitalized at North Me-
morial in the Neuro ICU unit ever since.
Community members sold bracelets for $2.00 that
said #69irishtough at Fridays homecoming game
to support Moeller and all of the proceeds from the
bracelet sale were donated to the Moeller family.
Not only did the football team prove that they
were Irish tough defeating Rockford 45 to 15,
Moeller has also shown signs of his toughness. Ac-
cording to Morgans aunt, Maggie Irmiter, there
have been wonderful signs of progress. Morgan
actually opened his eyes on Sunday and turned his
head towards his mother, Melissas, voice. The
plan is to move Morgan to Bethesda Hospital in
St. Paul to begin rehab this week... apparently life
in the ICU has been too boring for him and theyre
kicking him out, said Moellers aunt on his Car-
ingBridge site.
Community members can still help out by vis-
iting Morgans Caring Bridge site at: www.caring- and Give Forward

A bull moose, estimated to
weigh between 800 and 900
pounds, was struck and ulti-
mately killed on Hwy. 55 near the
Maple Lake beach access on
Monday evening.
According to the Wright
County Sheriffs office, a report
was received at approximately
8:15 p.m. that a Chrysler Sebring
convertable driven by Donald
OConnor of Maple Lake struck
a moose that was in the roadway.
Donald was injured as a result of
the collision and was transported
to Buffalo Hospital. A passenger
in the vehicle, Terry O Connor,
his wife, was also injured and
was transported to the hospital.
Wright County deputies were
first on the scene, followed
quickly by Maple Lake Fire and
It happened about 50 yards
west of the beach access, said
Maple Lake Fire Chief Todd
Borell. We were only told that
there was a car accident with in-
juries and that the top of the car
was peeled off. I expected to see
the car under a semi, something
much different than it was when
we got there - hitting a moose
never even crossed my mind.
There hasnt been a moose in the
area in years. It looked like the
moose hit and shattered the wind-
shield, forcing it in on the driver
and passenger and then folded
the convertable top back before
landing back on Hwy. 55. Both
people in the car were transported
to the hospital by ambulance, the
driver by Maple Lake ambu-
lance, the passenger by Allina.
According to Borell, the DNR
collected parts of the moose for
testing, trying to answer the
whys of a moose appearance so
far from its northern Minnesota
Nicholas Snavely, assistant
area wildlife manager for the
Minnesota DNR, was at the resi-
dence of a fire department mem-
ber where the carcass was taken
for butchering.

Bonus timethese two words
can have different meanings for
folks, but I think we all would
agree that its a good thing. I ex-
perienced bonus time over the
past weekend. I did a little duck
hunting and fishing with fam-
ily...and my 13 year-old yel-
low lab. I dont know how much
longer he will be around, but I
just couldnt leave him at the
cabin when we loaded up the
boat Saturday morningand the
way he was running around, he
was having none of the leaving
me behind talk I gave him on the
His name is Sonny, or is it
Sunny since he is real light yel-
low, I cant remember? The wife
came up with the name and ei-
ther name was fitting since he
was yellow and the only pup de-
livered from his yellow lab mom
Bo (named after Bo Derek, the
actress in the movie 10my
wife didnt come up with that
oneheehee). I was awakened
by Bo delivering Sonny around
2 a.m. 13+ years ago. I waited
anxiously for the rest of the litter
to come, but six hours later and
a quick run to the vet confirmed
Sonny was going to be the only
one. That made him special from
the get-go. All four of us show-
ered that puppy with affection,
especially the kidsthose dogs
were family. The next year, Bo
got cancer and was gone just
after Sonnys first birthdayshe
was not quite five years old. The
next year, I heard that his father,
too, had died of cancer at the age
of six. With Sonny now two, his
genetics did not bode well for a
long lifeif attitude can beat
genetics, he would be the poster
Sonnys mom was a sweet-
hearttough hunter and a great
family dog. But, hands down, he
was the best hunting lab I have
ever owned. He watched all the
birds and often would take iron
man swims after birds sailed off
a ways into the lake. I have seen
him dive under water a few feet
to retrieve birds that dove when
he got close. His great instinct,
attitude and nose won him ap-
preciation from all who hunted
with him. We did not lose too
many birds over the years.
He loved to fish, too. All day
was spent patrolling the shal-
lows in front of the cabin for
sunfish and he would often
swim far out into the lake to re-
trieve a floating fish that his
nose told him was out there (he
didnt win any awards for bring-
ing them back to shore though).
He also was lightening quick on
guarding the live well in the
boathe often would snatch a
fish right out of the air if some-
one tried to toss one in. My fish-
ing buddy thought he was
quicker and often would try to
see if he could sneak one by him
in the airso far, Sonny is about
25 & 0 with that challenge.
Over the years, Sonny has
taught me what it means to have
a can do attitude and tenacity
He is my hero right now and I
can only hope I am as tough as
he is at 94. When the day finally
comes, Im really going to take
it hardhe has been my hunting
and fishing buddy for a long
time. I hope he is around for
many more hunting seasons, but
I think Im on bonus time right
nowwish me luck.
From the hammering that was going on at day-break Saturday I
assume the duck hunters that were in the right place at the right time
shot their limits or had a lot of fun trying. Local banker Andy
Wahlquist and his 11-year-old son, Myles, hunted out of the family
duck camp in western Minnesota where they had great shooting.
Andy said they used layout blinds between a marsh and late planting
of soybeans. On Saturday they harvested mallards and red heads
and Sunday it was more mallards, gadwells, and pintails. He said
his son is the fourth generation at their duck hunting camp this year
and I suspect the evening was filled with story telling from past
hunts over a span of many years. Myles had a double on wood ducks
during the special youth hunt earlier this fall. I remember those typ-
ical blue-bird mornings, great for sitting in a blind, but not the best
weather for duck hunting. After the first few volleys the ducks wise
up pretty fast and that gives them an advantage when the sky is high
and blue. Be that as it may, duck hunters will have to put their hunt-
ing skills to the task to get good shooting until some frigid weather
forces some of the northern flocks this way. Andy commented the
mosquitoes were terrible Saturday when the wind went down on the
humid prairie. Im waiting for some cooler weather, which seemed
to come Monday, and better visibility before going after ruffed
grouse again. In the meantime, Janis keeps reminding me there is
yard work that needs to be done as well as installing the storm win-
dows on our porch. At the same time she suggested I should be fish-
ing more. It doesnt take a rocket scientist to figure out which
avenue Ill follow! I did manage to get out to that secret lake I re-
ferred to in last weeks column on Friday. I was accompanied by
my brother, Lloyd, from Elk River, who is a determined walleye an-
gler. We were on the lake by 2:30 p.m. after stopping at a bait shop
for bait and a few hints inasmuch as neither of us had fished the lake
before. We used nightcrawlers and rattling rapalas. We had a fairly
strong south-southeastern breeze that was good for drift fishing, but
the two walleyes I caught were on nightys. We each caught a north-
ern which added to the excitement of the trip, some small perch and
Lloyd caught a rock bass, but no more walleyes. I lost about $7.00
worth of tackle when a northern, I think, hit my slick stick and cut
the line off above the swivel. I was using a reel with monofilament
which obviously was a mistake, but Im not sure a Pro-Tem or Fire
Line would have survived the attack. The afternoon also included a
visit with two DNR officials who checked us for licenses and took
a look in the livewell. I asked them about the proper depth and
whether evening or morning fishing was better. They said 8-10 feet
and the morning has been better for walleyes. I suspect that means
another trip before lawn work and storm windows become a neces-
Fishing out of Seward, Alaska in August was productive for Jim
Goelz, a retired Maple Lake farmer, who fished with three cousins
and two of their friends, all living in Alaska. They limited out on
Halibut (12) while ocean fishing which are shown above. He said
they used frozen Herring for bait and fished from 195-200 feet
down. Their largest was 15 lbs. although Halibut grow much larger.
He wasnt sure of the proper name for the smaller fish in the photo,
Rock something, but said they were good eating fish. Because the
Halibut can be huge and deep the boat was equipped with power
reels. The anglers still needed to raise the rod in a pumping motion,
but the power units did some of the work. Goelz used one once when
he called out fish one but not very loud before he took the chair.
Goelz said they had rain for four days and the water was rough
the last two days of fishing. He enjoyed the glaciers which seemed
to be all around their 40-foot boat and commented it was a two-hour
ride out and back to the harbor in Seward which is about three hours
from Anchorage.
They also fished Silver Salmon which would fight like a North-
ern. The limit on salmon is six and the ones they caught ranged from
8 to 13 lbs. he said. They also caught some rough fish that included
a small shark.
Jeff Erickson, Kaylas husband, who worked on the fishing boats
in Alaska and now is an assistant principal in the Buffalo Middle
School system, said the unidentified fish were either Rock fish or
Yellow-Eyed Rock fish.

(Belated) Happy
Constitution Day!
Perhaps no one said that to
you this past September 17th,
the day we annually celebrate
Constitution Day. However, it
is an annual reminder of the
importance of our Constitution
and the foundation it provides
for the enduring magnitude of
the United States. What is
Constitution Day and why do
we celebrate at this time?
Constitution Day is a federal
observance that recognizes the
signing of the U.S. Constitution
in Philadelphia on this day in
1787. Prior to a law change in
2004, this day was known as
Citizenship Day. Now, the ob-
servance has been combined so
that it is officially called Con-
stitution and Citizenship Day.
Iowa was first to celebrate
this day in its schools begin-
ning in 1911. In 1917 the Sons
of the American Revolution
created a committee to cele-
brate Constitution Day. Early
members of that committee in-
cluded President Calvin
Coolidge, John D. Rockefeller,
and General John Pershing.
In 1939 William Randolph
Hearst promoted a Citizenship
Day through his daily newspa-
pers. In 1940, Congress passed
a law identifying the third Sun-
day in May as I am an Ameri-
can Day. This day was
promoted by the United States
Immigration and Naturalization
Service by the creation of a 16-
minute movie which was
shown in theatres across the
As of 1949, the governors of
all 48 states had issued Consti-
tution Day proclamations. In
1952, Congress changed I am
an American Day to Citizen-
ship Day and moved the date
to September 17.
Here are some interesting
facts about our United States
1. The Constitution has
4,400 words. It is the oldest and
shortest Constitution of any
major government in the world.
2. Perhaps the most glaring
error in the original Constitu-
tion is the misspelling of Penn-
sylvania as Pensylvania.
3. Thomas Jefferson did not
sign the Constitution because he
was serving as a U.S. minister in
France at the time of its signing.
John Adams also was not present
because he was serving as U.S.
minister to Great Britain at the
4. James Madison is consid-
ered the father of the Constitu-
tion and arrived in Philadelphia
with a blueprint for the Constitu-
tion approximately three months
before the convention began.
5. Forty-two delegates at-
tended the meetings. Only three
of the delegates refused to sign
the Constitution because it did
not include a Bill of Rights: Ed-
mund Randolph, George Mason
and Elbridge Gerry.

Tabs purchased
and displayed
Question: My registration
tabs for my license plates are
due. Is there some leeway when
I have to purchase those?
Answer: This is a good
question and I have learned
something myself along the
way. Minnesota State Statute
168.09 says: A vehicle regis-
tered under the monthly series
system of registration shall dis-
play the plates and insignia is-
sued within 10 days of the first
day of the month which com-
mences the registration pe-
Let me clarify: The registra-
tion tabs must be purchased be-
fore the end of the month, but
you have 10 days to display
them. For example, if the regis-
tration tabs are October 2014,
the tabs must be purchased by
October 31, 2014. You then
have 10 days (November 10,
2014) to get them on the li-
cense plates.
I would also like to add ve-
hicles must display the month
of expiration in the lower left
corner of each license plate and
the year of expiration in the
lower right corner of each li-
cense plate.
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,

Since July 1, Trailblazer
Transit has been providing pub-
lic transportation in Wright
County. Shortly thereafter, 12
cities came together to form
Wright County Area Transporta-
tion. Now, the two entities are
moving toward a joint-powers
agreement to officially include
WCAT in Trailblazer Transit.
WCAT members met Tues-
day to review the first few
months of Trailblazer service in
Wright County and approved
seeking legal counsel to repre-
sent them during the drafting of
the joint-powers agreement.
Is it OK to have an attorney
draft an agreement? Trailblazer
Executive Director Gary Ludwig
asked. Well get started on my
end this week.
Our city attorney (Mark
Johnson) is willing to do this,
Delano City Councilman Jack
Russek said.
Delano City Administrator
Phil Kern said Johnson is famil-
iar with transit issues as the at-
torney for SouthWest Transit.
WCAT approved seeking a pro-
posal from Johnson to oversee
the drafting of the joint-powers
agreement. Under the agree-
ment, WCAT will officially join
Sibley and McLeod counties as
members of Trailblazer.
Ludwig expects the first
joint-powers meeting to take
place in January. He informed
WCAT that the Trailblazer board
approved the service plan that
WCAT had agreed upon. Under
the service plan, service will not
be provided in or between Mon-
ticello, Otsego, Clearwater,
South Haven and the townships.
However, if residents of those
cities and townships want to
travel to or from one of the 12
Wright County cities in WCAT,
that service will be permitted.
Previously, service was pro-
vided in corridors from Cokato
to Dassel, from Winsted to Wa-
conia, from Rockford to Medina
and Plato to Norwood-Young
America. That service has been
Service has also been discon-
tinued in Monticello, which
opted not to joining WCAT. In-
stead, Monticello signed a
$40,000 per year contract with
Hoglund Bus for one bus 10
hours per day.
I think thats less service
than theyd get from Trail-
blazer, Ludwig said.
However, that has opened up
more resources to serve other

Fire Department Report
County Board debates no-wake/slow-wake lake zones
by John Holler
Last summer during heaving
rain periods in June and July,
lake levels in Wright County be-
came dangerously high, resulting
in yard flooding and erosion
along the shoreline. The Wright
County Board of Commissioners
was asked by several lake asso-
ciations to impose emergency
no-wake/slow-wake zones,
which would require any motor-
ized vessel to be at least 150 feet
away from shore.
At the Sept. 23 meeting of the
county board, the commissioners
offered a more permanent option
that would allow lake associa-
tions to impose no-wake restric-
tions during times of high water
or for the entire summer regard-
less of lake level.
After this summers emer-
gency no-wake ordinances were
put into place, I informed you
that sometime in September I
would come here with a policy
and try to do something more
permanent, Assistant County
Attorney Greg Kryzer said.
What you have before you is a
policy for lakes that want to par-
ticipate in the no-wake ordi-
Kryzer said that his office
would send out copies of the pol-
icy to all lake associations to de-
cide whether or not they want to
be part of the policy. There are
two options approved by the
Minnesota Department of Natu-
ral Resources that lake associa-
tions can use one that would
enact a no-wake zone during pe-
riods of high water and one that
would enforce a season no-wake
zone that runs from Memorial
Day to Labor Day. Lake Sylvia
asked that the seasonal no-wake
zone be placed on its lake this
summer and other lake associa-
tions expressed some interest in
that possibility.
Commissioner Charlie Bor-
rell voiced opposition to the pro-
gram, saying that the seasonal
no-wake restriction doesnt make
sense and that the result will be
landowners who dont like water
skiing or personal watercraft will
be constantly calling the sheriffs
office with complaints.
I dont want to blanket the
entire county with this, Borrell
said. A seasonal no-wake zone
is really restrictive. Why would
we need a no-wake zone for the
entire county? Were opening
something up here. If a bunch of
lakes do this, were going to be
inundated with calls all summer
long. If somebody wants that op-
tion, they should come to the
board with a special request, not
make it boilerplate. Were look-
ing to put something in place that
has never been done in Wright
Board Chair Christine Husom
countered that those who live
along the lakes have the most to
lose and that it should be their
right to determine whether a no-
wake ordinance is adopted for
their lake property.
There are people coming in
on weekends that arent respect-
ful, Husom said. Thats what it
boils down to. Thats where
these requests were coming from
lake associations trying to pro-
tect their property. I think its up
to them.

City Council sets preliminary tax levy for 2015
by Katie Friedman
The Maple Lake City Coun-
cil adopted resolutions approv-
ing the 2015 proposed budget
and tax levy Tuesday, Septem-
ber 23. The preliminary levy
and budget were passed by a 4-
0 vote, in the absence of Coun-
cilmember Shar Dircks.
The citys overall budget re-
quirements for 2015 will
amount to $1,613,415, an in-
crease of $103,385 over 2014.
The overall certified levy for
2015 is $896,079, an increase of
$65,504 over 2014.
The increase in the levy for
2015 is due to a bond of
$53,100 for the 2014 Street Im-
provement Project, staffing in-
creases in the Maintenance
Department, increasing the
Street Fund by $10,000 for fu-
ture projects, increasing the
Park Fund by $5,000, and
money to be set aside for Maple
Lakes 125th anniversary cele-
State funding to Local Gov-
ernment Aid (LGA) increased
by $5,694, from this years
$479,341 to $485,035 in 2015.
The General Fund levy was
increased by $37,404 this year,
primarily by moving $35,000 of
the CIP Public Improvement
money into the General Fund
Levy and the increase in LGA
funds. A transfer from the
Liquor Store Fund, usually an
annual occurrence, is not antic-
ipated this year, as the council
has opted instead to pay down
the loan on the stores building.
This proposed budget and
levy can be reduced, but cannot
be increased.
The city received the prelim-
inary tax capacity from Wright
County and, based on budget
numbers discussed at a recent
council workshop, the citys
proposed 2015 tax rate would be
59.135 percent, a 1.4 percent in-
crease over 2014s 57.733 per-
cent. The tax capacity grew
from $1,438,649 to $1,515,306
an increase of approximately
5.3 percent, due in no small part
to an eight-percent hike in resi-
dential home values.
The citys portion of 2014
taxes based on taxable market
value at a rate of 59.135 percent
will be approximately $544 for
a $91,000 home in 2015 an in-
crease of $40 over 2014, when
the home was valued at $85,000
and taxed $502. A home valued
at $100,000 and taxed $591 in
2014 would see its taxable mar-
ket value climb to $108,000 in
2015 and its taxes rise to $638.
A home valued and taxed in
2014 at $140,000 and $828
would be valued at $151,200 in
2015 and taxed $894.
Observing that rising home
values would help to buoy the
citys budget, Mayor Lynn
Kissock also noted, We are
making a slight increase again
this year, as we did last year,
kind of trying to go back and
catch up from the past few years
where we needed to be very
conservative. But now we need
to be a bit more plan-full, and
make sure that were prepared,
and were also making sure that
our infrastructure is upgraded
and updated as it needs to be.

Essentially we take these
samples to do a general health as-
sessment, said Snavely. Every-
thing is sent to a diagnostics lab
to help determine any underlying
health issues, the brain tissue to
see if brain worm is present, also
the heart, liver and lungs as well
as a check for the parasite load on
the outside of the body, the hide.
True cause of mortality is that it
was hit by the car, but ultimately
the question is whether other fac-
tors led to it being in Maple
Terry OConnor, a nurse her-
self, has somewhat disjointed
memories of the accident. We
were at Walmart (in Buffalo) and
heading back home, she said. I
looked up and saw this big brown
animal. I didnt know what it was
at first, just something flying
through the air coming right at
our windshield. I was knocked
out, but my husband got my
phone and called 911. He was
able to swerve the car over and
stop. When I opened my eyes the
windshield was right in my face,
and we both had tons of glass in
our eyes and in our mouths. I re-
member looking at Don and he
had blood running down his face.
My frst thought was why do we
have all this glass all over us and
why is the top down on the car.
Mrs. OConnor had a concus-
sion and several stitches at her
hair line, Mr. OConnor sports 40
stitches, most of them on his
face. Both consider themselves
lucky to be alive. Everyone
keeps telling us we were lucky to
be in such a small car, the moose
just hit the windshield and rolled
over the top, said Mrs. OCon-
nor. Were both pretty beat up
but we know it could have been
an awful lot worse.

Maple Lake was covered in

Heres 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!

An event honoring Central
Minnesotas educational sup-
port staff was held September
24 at the Rivers Edge Conven-
tion Center, St. Cloud.
In its fourth year, 105 peo-
ple were honored from 28
school districts. The event
honors those who work as bus
drivers, custodians, cooks,
paraprofessionals and other
staff who help keep schools
running smoothly.
Honorees, you are recog-
nized tonight not because of
your title but your attitude and
commitment to students and
other staff in your schools,
said Rob Cavanna, executive
director of Resource Training
& Solutions.
Awardees are nominated
from within their school dis-
tricts. They receive a trophy
and a certificate signed by the
governor of Minnesota.
The keynote address pre-
sented by Sisters Kay ONeill
and Michelle Meyers encour-
aged everyone to give compli-
ments and, just as important,
accept compliments.
Our method of reminding
us to say something nice to
myself or others is to do it be-
fore breakfast, lunch and din-
ner. Make sure youve affirmed
someone. If it hasnt happened,
no meal! said Sr. ONeill.
This is not a weight loss plan,
just a method to remind you to
give and receive compli-
ments, she joked.
The presiding superintend-
ent for the evening was Rob
Prater from Hinckley-Fin-
layson School District. He
likened the school to an air-
craft carrier where everyones
job is invaluable to making the
planes fly and ships run.
Honorees received an award
governor of Minnesota.
You give meaning, direc-
tion and purpose to school.
Life is short but we all play a
part in making it a better
place, said Sr. Meyers.

Connecting Links
program seeks mentors for
Would you be interested in mak-
ing a difference in a students 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

Recognition dinner honors school support staff
Tim Staloch assigned his 4th
grade students to write an
essay about their favorite
Anna McClelland - One of
my favorite things to do is go
camping. I like to camp be-
cause I personally love the
sounds of nature that put me to
seep. There are no car noises,
which is really nice. I also love
smores over a warm campfire.
The fire keeps my feet nice and
warm from the breeze. Plus the
smores are good.
My favorite place to camp is
Duluth. Its just really nice up
there. Duluth has some really
nice campsites. My favorite
time to camp is in the middle of
August. I think it is the most
peaceful time to camp because
the birds chirp the most that
time of the year. I love the
warm weather with a slight
breeze, and its so peaceful. I
love camping with family and
friends. Family because every
night they kiss my forehead and
wake me early with a new ad-
venture ahead of me. The
breakfasts are wonderful! Boy
do I love my mothers burritos.
I like camping with friends be-
cause they help me find neat
stuff and watch my back for
wild animals, or falling into the
river, and eating off a bad bush
or tree. These are reasons
camping is so fun for me.
Jacob Klatt - One of my fa-
vorite things to do is play
sports. I like sports because I
get exercise. When you get a
touchdown, a homerun, or
make a basket it is very excit-
ing. The crowd goes wild. I
like to play sports in the sum-
mer because it is very nice out
and there is a less chance to slip
on anything. I like to play with
my Dad because he teaches me
how to get better. I also like
playing sports with my brothers
because they are both older and
are in football so they can teach
me and my friends things. One
of my favorite sports is football
because its fun for me. I also
like baseball because it is a
very challenging sport. You
have to hit a tiny ball that is
thrown real fast. Another one of
my favorites is soccer. I think it
is the hardest sport because you
have to run down a really long
field and not let anyone get the
ball by keeping it close to you.
I also enjoy playing basketball.
Mattie Muller - my favorite
thing to do is go swimming. I
think it relaxing, fun, and excit-
ing! Usually I either swim at
my Grandmas house or a pool.
I love to swim at night, but I
also like to swim in the morn-
ing and in the afternoon too.
When I go swimming I like to
swim with my family and
friends. Sometimes if Im bored
I like to pretend Im skiing on
my tubing tub. Also if you have
water balloons you can have a
lake water balloon fight. It
would be awesome if there was
an automatic water balloon
launcher! I love to float down
the lake on a very calm day.
Sometimes I like to get freezies
and sit in the sand and eat them
with my sisters Kaydi and Bai-
ley. My neighbors have a float-
ing dock that we get to jump off
of. As you can see I have a lot
of reasons why I like to swim!
Riki Latour - One of my fa-
vorite things to do is go horse-
back riding. I really enjoy
going horseback riding with my
Grandma. She has three horses.
One is mine and her name is
Heather. The reason why I like
going horseback riding is be-
cause I love horses. To me they
are the best animal in the
world. My Grandma and I like
going horseback riding on the
Nye Park trails because the
trails are both in the woods and
out in the open. The best time
to go riding is probably midday
because then its not too hot or
too cold. We just go riding for
fun not for contests or anything
like that.
JuliAnna Hageman - My
favorite thing to do is hanging
out with my Dad. I dont get to
see him very often, and when I
do we play games and hunt.
When we go hunting we have
to get up really early in the
morning. When we get out to
our stand we sit there and are
real quiet and wait. Then I raise
my bow and shoot. This year I
hope we get the big one! It is
going to be exciting.
Sydnee Peterson - My fa-
vorite thing to do is play in the
woods I think it is fun because
I like climbing trees and look-
ing at bird nests. It is relaxing
just sitting on my favorite hill.
There are woods at my house in
the front yard. I think the best
time to go in the woods is after

Sports Writer
The Maple Lake Irish wore
black, pink, and the initials MM
on the back of their helmets when
they took on the 2-2 Rockford
Rockets (AAA). Since it was
homecoming, many alumni were
watching the game and the pres-
ent players felt they needed to
bounce back from a disappoint-
ing game last week against
EVW. We didnt feel we beat
Eden Valley, we could have and
should have won by a lot more
than we did a determined
Nick Preisinger said about the im-
portance of this game, ... they are
a good team, but we are better and
if we can play an entire game, no
one can beat us. If no one can
beat them, then can the Rockets?
The answer was no. Maple Lakes
defense gave the offense plenty of
chances to score with two
turnovers, including a foot strong
special teams that caused two
turnovers. Altogether four
turnovers diffused the Rockets
and gave the Irish offense 45
points and the defense held the
Rockets to 15 points with only
153 yards of total offense.
The Irish received the opening
kickoff and was taking back to
their own 30 by Ryan Kali-
nowski. However, they were
bogged down on their first two
drives by a swarming Rockford
defense. They wouldnt break out
until the defense caused a
turnover in Rockford territory.
With the Rockets crashing down
hard on Cal Redemske, Tony
Goelz looked to pitch the ball to
his other running back, Dustin
Strub. Strub, on the first play of
the drive, racked up a 25-yard run
and put the Irish in the red-zone.
The Irish moved the ball slowly,
but managed to score with a run
up the middle from Strub. The run
put the Irish on the board first 7-
0. On their next drive, they moved
the ball until they found them-
selves in Rockford territory. A
pass play was called when the
Irish found themselves in a third
and long. Goelz connected with
Kalinowski for a 50-yard recep-
tion for a touchdown. Penalties
and great tackling set the Irish
back and forced them to attempt
a field goal for Charlie Stejskal on
their next drive. He was clutch
and made the 35- yarder, giving
the Irish a 17-7 lead with 20 sec-
onds remaining in the first half.
Stejskal's kick off in the corner
made it difficult for the returner
and he fumbled on his own 10-
yard line. Ryan Cargill recovered
the ball for the Irish. With only 15
seconds left, Goelz connected
with a wide open Lucas Fobbe for
a touchdown pass. With a two-
point conversion, the Irish scored
11 points in 10 seconds of game
time. Maple Lake kicked off to
the Rockets to begin the second
half. Stejskal again helped his
team when his kickoff hit a Rock-
ford player and he recovered his
own forced fumble. The Irish of-
fense again scored making it 32-
7. With their momentum at its
highest peak and the Rockets de-
fense losing stamina and compo-
sure, the Irish scored two more
touchdowns and 445 yards of
total offense as they sealed off the
Rockets 45-15.
The Irish defense had their
best game of the season only al-
lowing 153 yards throughout the
entire game. The Irish defense's
success came from a swarming
front seven that held Rockfords
rushing game to 88 yards. The
Irish defensive linemen put pres-
sure on the Rocket's quarterback.
With pressure and ball hawking,
the secondary forced the Rockets
to turn the ball over twice, with
interceptions coming from Blake
Wellsted and Redemske. Both
gave the Irish offense great field
position and resulted in a score.
The Irish did give up some deep
plays down-field early, resulting
in a Rockford score, but held
them in check for the remainder
of the game. "Our linebackers and
D-line set the tone against them
early and made them a one di-
mensional team. All we needed to
do was stop them in the air and
create turnovers and we did so,"
defensive coach Andrew Brown
commented very confidently after
his defense dominance confirmed
an Irish victory.
"We played a good game
against a good team and we had
great support from our fans and
this was a huge team victory
where we all came together and
forged a great, fun, and exciting
game," senior wide receiver Ryan
Kalinowski said enthusiastically.
The Irish will play Kimball on
Friday at 7 p.m. The Cubs are
winless this season, but have been
climbing in their performance
throughout the season.

Talk to kids often about ac-
ademics. Whether in the car on
the way to soccer practice or at
the dinner table, parents should
ask their children daily what
they learned at school. If a child
is reluctant to talk about a sub-
ject or test, this may indicate
extra help is needed.
Know where children stand
academically. A childs grades
shouldnt be a surprise when his
or her report card arrives. If the
classroom teacher doesnt pro-
vide a syllabus at the beginning
of the year that lists out grading
policies, parents can approach
the teacher to get a handle on ex-
pectations. Progress reports and
report cards can be great bench-
marks but CEOs shouldnt hesi-
tate to have check-ins with
teachers in between.
Track progress. CEOs
should keep samples of school-
work throughout each grade and
from year-to-year. This is a great
way to see just how far a student
has progressed from the first day
of school to the last and from
one grade to the next.
Set a good example. Kids
are very observant and they pick
up on their parents attitudes and
behaviors. Its important to have
a positive attitude and regularly
acknowledge the importance of
education. Parents can show
their child that learning can be a
life-long activity by taking a
class on an interesting subject or
making a point to read one book
per month.
Check homework daily. Its
important to let kids take the
lead on completing homework
assignments but parents can help
by reviewing the completed
work. If kids need help, parents
should try to provide guidance,
not answers.
Help kids develop strong
study skills. Mastering effective
study skills can be the "secret
behind the A," turning good stu-
dents into great students. From
time management and organiza-
tion to researching and writing
effectively, these important
skills and strategies give stu-
dents a consistent process to suc-
ceed with every academic
Get involved in your local
PTA. Theres no better way for
parents to know whats happen-
ing at their childs school than
joining the PTA. Local units
offer a variety of programs and
benefits for parents and students.
In addition, PTA functions are a
chance to meet other parents and
teachers, building a rapport and
sharing ideas, concerns and ex-
To help set kids up for aca-
demic success, Sylvan Learning
is also offering special benefits
to PTA members including 50

sessment, which identifies a
childs academic strengths and
weaknesses as well as his or her
attitudes about school and learn-
ing. The assessment is designed
to help families and educators
determine the necessary support
a child needs to excel. In addi-
tion to the discount, for every
student who takes an assess-
ment, Sylvan will donate $10 to

With a busy week filled with
lots of excitement, the Maple
Lake Irish cross country team
traveled to St. John's University.
Although Homecoming week
brought lots of activities, the
Irish focused in on their races
and excelled.
Reaching temps close to the
80s, the athletes performed as if
it wasn't hot and muggy. Coming
around the first turn of the boys
varsity race was a flood of foot-
steps. Out front for the Irish was
Andrew Schonnesen, leading
with a determined mindset.
Schonnesen powered through
the course and finished fifth
overall with a time of 18:10.
Following Schonnesen, Scott
Jordan crossed the finish line in
18:40 and placed ninth. Placing
19th, Devin Deringer sprinted
through the finish line, ending
with a time of 19:34. Crossing
the finish line in 19:39, Jackson
Willard placed 20th. Pushing
each other until the end, Ross
Hickey and Cullen Gallagher
worked to improve their times.
Hickey placed 25th in 20 min-
utes flat and Gallagher placed
27th in 20:09. Coming in 35th,
Adam Ruhland finished in
20:34. With great times and out-
standing performances, the Irish
boys had a team score of 78
points and placed third.
Winding through trails sur-
rounded by soaring, color-
changing trees, the girls varsity
team used the shade to their ad-
vantage. Tackling the course
with strength, Sommer Carlson
won her second girls varsity race
this season. Carlson came in just
ahead of St. Cloud Tech with a
time of 15:40. Just behind Carl-
son, Halle Geyen also finished
strong, placing third overall with
a time of 16:22. Grace Heying
pushed through the rugged
course in 17:24 and placed ninth
overall. Coming in 18th with a
time of 18:05 was Kayla Hois-
tad. One after the other, Jordan
Sifferle and Katelyn Kramer
motivated each other throughout
the race. Sifferle placed 31st in
19:14, and Kramer place 33rd in
19:19. Crossing the finish in
20:04 and placing 44th, was
Olivia Wolff-Herda. The girls
placed second overall with a
team score of 62.
Both the girls and boys junior
varsity teams finished on top
with top 10 performances by
Simon Willard, Tanner Vasser,
Ben Smail, Brady Tongen,
Chloe Riviere, Tara Holmgren,
Kelly Beissel, and Ashlee Mar-
"Sommer had an outstanding
run, almost a minute faster than
last season. Halle also went
faster than last year. Grace
stepped it up to make the sub-
17:30 all time list on a really
tough course. The winner of the
loaf of Johnnie Bread was Olivia
Wolff-Herda for running
through injuries to finish #7 on
the varsity," said Head Coach
Ben Youngs.
"Andrew Schonnesen and
Scott Jordan ran well enough to
get Johnnie Bread. The boys did
look a little tired, as a whole, be-
cause of Tuesday's tough work-
out," added Youngs.
After the tough St. John's
course, the Irish will travel to
Litchfield for a flat, fast golf
course next Thursday. The CMC
and Section meets are approach-
ing, and the Irish have high

focused in spite of warm temps

There will be pockets of op-
portunity from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.,
Ludwig said.
Additionally, three of the four
buses currently serving Wright
County are being moved to the
Buffalo Public Works building.
Wright County should have
seven buses on the road by the
end of 2014 and 14 buses by the
end of 2015. In total, Trailblazer
is planning for 29 vehicles on the
road, with six backups, by the
end of 2015.
Trailblazer is seeking nine
new buses at a total of $675,000.
WCATs share would be about
$33,750, to bring the estimated
budget cost to $183,000 for 2015.
Ludwig said providing more
contract service to entities like
Functional Industries and
DuraSupreme would provide
more funds, but also limit service
to the general public.
There is a trade off with the
service buses for the general pub-
lic, especially in the early morn-
ing and late afternoon, Ludwig
With Wright County, wed
prefer you start by addressing the
unmet need, said Beverly
Herfindahl, of the Minnesota De-
partment of Transportation. We
probably wont fill buses as much
or bring as much revenue, but it
will get the word out that public
transportation is available. If you
have too many contracts, you
cant help the lady who needs to
get her hair cut or the kid who
needs to get to piano lessons.
WCAT would like a break-
down of where the rides are com-
ing and going, as well as how
many are being provided and
how many are being denied. In
July, there were 3,749 rides and
701 denials, but up-to-date num-
bers are not available.
Trailblazer is not structured
to do custom reports, Ludwig
We need to hire someone to
do reports. We spent almost a full
day pulling the numbers and re-
constructing them into a format
you could read.
Id like to see the number of
denials, what times and where,
Buffalo City Administrator Mer-
ton Auger said. If software
needs to change, so be it. I want
to see the numbers before we
vote on a business plan.
Ludwig said software is being
upgraded and, once it is, Trail-
blazer will work to get that data.
Forrest Butch Amundsen, of
Cokato, spoke out about how the
Wright County Board of Com-
missioners has dealt with Trail-
Im distressed with the
Wright County Board, Amund-
sen said. They said there were
promises made and promises not
kept in Monticello. Theres so
much negativity from the board
all the time.
Ludwig noted that everyone in
the county has some access to
public transit at no cost to the
county. He added that negativity
has affected his staff.
This has been difficult for
our staff, especially the dispatch-
ers, he said. Some calls are di-
rected to me. One couple had
scathing comments saying their
commissioner said this or that
and were the problem. Its af-
fected our dispatchers. Theyre
On another note, Ludwig an-
nounced that Trailblazer received
the Friends of Transit award be-
cause of their work with the cities
in Wright County.

After lengthy discussion, the
board approved passing along
the no-wake ordinance to all
Wright County lake associations
to determine whether or not they
want to participate in the pro-
gram. For those that do, Kryzer
said that a public hearing could
take place as early as November
so that, if approved, the regula-
tions could be in place well in
advance of next summers boat-
ing season.
In other items on the Sept. 23
agenda, the board:
* Set the annual county Truth
In Taxation hearing for 6:30 p.m.
Thursday, Dec. 4, in the county
board room. The purpose of the
meeting is to get public input on
the countys preliminary budget
and certified levy for the coming
year. Such public meetings must
be conducted before the board
can approve a final budget and
* Approved a resolution from
the Minnesota Department of
Natural Resources to purchase
40 acres of wetland along Peli-
can Lake as an addition to the
Pelican Lake State Wildlife
Management Area. Because state
funds will be used to purchase
the property to create a wildlife
management area, approval of
the county was required by state
* Authorized moving forward
with creating schematic designs
from HCM Architects for a ren-
ovation project at the Public
Works Building. Part of the ap-
proval was contingent on cost es-
timates being obtained regarding
separating the renovation of the
existing Public Works Building
from the renovation project in-
cluding a not-to-exceed cost fig-
ure. In a separate matter, referred
matters concerning deferred
maintenance items, including an
ongoing roof-leak issue, to the
building committee. The bid
from HCM was $1,169,750,
which was just $6,125 less than
the other bid received a differ-
ence of just 0.52 percent. If the
project moves along as planned,
bids will be let out next spring
with anticipated construction be-
ginning in June 2015.
* Reappointed County Sur-
veyor Steve Jobe to a four-year
term that will run through Dec.
31, 2018.
* Approved an amended joint
powers agreement with the Min-
nesota Counties Computer Co-
operative. The amended JPA
cleaned up some of the language
from the previous agreement and
took into account new technolo-
gies that have been developed
since the original joint powers
agreement was created.
* Tabled discussion concern-
ing the most recent Tri-County
Regional Forensic Laboratory
activity report because the dis-
cussion would require input
from the sheriffs department
and none of its representatives
were at the county board meet-
* Approved the appointment
of Brooke Cebulla to the Lake
Pulaski Improvement District
Board of Directors.
* Appointed Kathy Jonsrud to
the Clearwater River Watershed
Board. Jonsrud replaces a retir-
ing member of the watershed
board and her appointment will
run through August, 2015.
* Approved special condi-
tions on six tax-forfeit properties
that were scheduled to come up
for sale Sept. 24. The conditions
included the demolition of aban-
doned structures on the property
as well as some that have wells
and septic systems that will need
to be sealed and abandoned.

Construction for work on the

ect. Remaining work for this

scheduled to be completed be-
fore Sept. 26. The spot repairs
include a major water main re-
placement at the intersection of

Spot concrete repairs on Divi-
sion and Oak south of the rail-

spot repairs were scheduled to
begin around September 22 and
are to be completed by October
Heard an update on the
Wastewater Treatment Plant
Commission from Kissock,
who said the commissioners
had discussed some potential
options for different rates and
how best to structure them so
that the plant would operate in
the black and not continue
using the current balance that it
has. After further examination
of various scenarios, it was
agreed that money could be
saved through possible restruc-
turing of the plants Public Fa-
cilities Authority (PFA) loan.
Either way, Kissock said, pro-
jections are that within a year
or two, with most of its startup
costs in the rearview mirror, the
plants income and expenses
should begin to level out.
Approved the purchase of
a 26-foot fence, at a cost of
$4,000, to secure the old waste-
water treatment site CHECK; a
heating and ventilation system
for the citys new truck shed, at
a cost of $15,950 (to be taken
from money set aside in the
Building Fund); and a new salt
shed, at a price not to exceed
$20,232. The council also di-
rected Maintenance Supervisor
Jerry Sawatzke to get an esti-
mate on asphalt for the shed,
not to exceed $9,000.
Approved raising the fire-
mens annual retirement benefit
from $1,800 to $2,000.
Directed staff to review the
animal officer agreement, ob-
tain a signature if one is not
currently on file and return to
the council with regards to any
necessary amendments. Prior to
issuing that directive, the coun-
cil had killed a motion, by a 2-
2 tie vote, to direct the drafting
of an animal ordinance that
contains verbage pertaining to
cats. Yager reported on the pro-
tocols of several neighboring
cities for the licensing, vacci-
nation, confinement and dis-
posal of unwanted and diseased
animals, concluding her report
with a recommendation advis-
ing against the licensing of cats
but suggesting that the city
continue to work on developing
a new animal ordinance that
would incorporate some of the
items that concern cats.
Kissock, pointing out a dispar-
ity in the treatment of cats and
dogs roaming at large, pro-
posed the motion and was
joined by Councilmember Bart
Lauer in supporting it. But
Councilmembers Deb Geyen
and John Northenscold voted
against the motion, both find-
ing the current animal ordi-
nance to be sufficient, with
Geyen characterizing any cat
ordinance as overreach.
Observed as Mayor Lynn
Kissock read and signed a
proclamation designating the
week of October 19-25 as Min-
nesota Manufacturers Week, in
honor of the contribution made
by manufacturers across the
state. In the proclamation, it
was noted that in 2014, 13 local
manufacturers provided 591
local jobs, and that in 2013
Maple Lake manufacturers pro-
vided $22,043,076 in annual
Reappointed Lake Central
Insurance as the citys insurer
and Paul Manuel as agent of
record. Manuel said the citys
insurance renewal date is No-
vember 1, and that the quote for
the coming year is $56,875, re-
flecting a 10 percent increase
over last years premium,
which he explained is due
mostly to adjusted replacement
values on several city and fire
department vehicles. The coun-
cil also adopted a resolution to
not waive the monetary limit
on municipal tort liability, as
the members agreed with
Manuel that to do so would not
be in the citys best interest.
Tabled further discussion
of a request for a street light on
Star Street between the Villas
and St. Timothys Church until
the Villas board has had an op-
portunity to examine the issue.
Approved maintaining
summer hours at City Hall (7
a.m.-4:30 p.m. Monday-Thurs-
day, 7-11 a.m. Fridays)
throughout the winter season.
Approved another
change of contract with AT&T
regarding a lease agreement for
the placement of an antenna on
the citys water tower, with the
commencement of construction
to be delayed one month, from
July 1 to August 1 of 2015, and
directed staff to notify AT&T
that the city will not extend the
date any further. AT&T had re-
quested an option to delay until
September 1, 2015.
