For the time being, at least,
plans for the City of Maple Lakes
street improvement project remain
up in the air, as they have been for
the past year.
In the wake of a public hearing
on a proposed special assessment
roll for the 2014 Street Improve-
ment Project, Tuesday, March 18,
the Maple Lake City Council
voted 4-1 to adopt the assessment,
but delayed moving forward with
plans to award the projects con-
struction contract. Council mem-
ber John Northenscold cast the
lone dissenting vote, raising ques-
tions as to the scope, cost and lo-
cation of the proposed
improvements.
Affected residents filled the
space provided for the meetings
audience, and several voiced
questions and objections regard-
ing the proposed project and as-
sessments. Among their major
concerns were the projects valid-
ity, its total price, the debt the city
would incur for it, a lack of speci-
ficity pertaining to individual in-
stallment payments and
skepticism over any increase in
property value that would match
the cost of the assessment. In ad-
dition, 13 attendees filed written
objections.
Mayor Lynn Kissock defended
the projects validity, saying the
improvements would be more
than superficial and repairs to the
citys infrastructure were an im-
perative.
This council has budgeted
more for street repairs and main-
tenance going forward, she said.
And thats our big focus, so we
dont get into the position were in
now. However, when it comes to
the underpinnings, we have to
weigh that as well, and we still
have to make the fix.
What were doing is repairing
an inheritance, explained council
member Shar Dircks.

Nashville-based Rebecca Fra-
zier and the Hit and Run Bluegrass
Band visited Maple Lake on Fri-
day for a one-night concert at
Bethlehem United Church of
Christ.
This high-energy, hard-work-
ing band formed in 2001 with the
desire to play authentic yet mod-
ern bluegrass music. Since 2002,
Hit & Run has been sharing stages
across the country with many
major names in bluegrass and
Americana music including
Jimmy Martin, Sam Bush, Hot
Rize and Del McCoury to name
just a very few. They have per-
formed at festivals across America
including Telluride, High Sierra
Music Festival and Blue Ridge
Harvest Fest among very many
others.

Crews work to repair a water line at the intersection of Birch
Avenue and Division Street on Tuesday, March 18. Public
Works Director Jerry Sawatzke said a broken coupler on the
line caused the problem. The incident marked the fourth time
this winter that frozen conditions have caused water issues,
as frost is still five or six feet deep. Other incidents occurred
on Fourth Street West and twice on Oak Avenue. Residents
living on Seventh Street are running a trickle of water to pre-
vent issues due to a shallow water main, but city staff is not
asking residents elsewhere to run water unless they feel it
is necessary. (Photo by Gabe Licht)
County board
approves
computer
dispatch upgrade
by John Holler
Correspondent
Technology has made signif-
icant advancements in the realm
of law enforcement. DNA ad-
vancements have been able to
tie suspects to crimes that were
previously impossible. Every
police car is now equipped with
computer equipment. But,
Wright County is preparing for
one of its most significant tech-
nology upgrades ever, as the
sheriffs department added the
Computer-Aided Dispatch/
Records Management System.
At the March 18 meeting of
the Wright County Board, the
commissioners heard from
Peter Behnke of Elert & Asso-
ciates, which put together the
bid proposal packages for ven-
dors. Behnke said there were
complicated proposal docu-
ments involved and com-
mended the sheriffs
department and information
technology representatives for
performing their due diligence
to select the best fit for the
county.
The sheriffs department
and the I.T. team went above
and beyond the call of duty
when it came to doing site vis-
its, Behnke said. There were
a lot of notes taken, a lot of
studying of the documents and
a lot of comparisons that were
made between the products the
vendors supplied as well as their
experience and who they had
worked with in the past. We
were looking for a company
that is stable, has been around
for a while and will be around
in the future.

Organizers are expecting a
large, plaid-clad crowd at St. Tim-
othys Catholic Schools 17th an-
nual Spring Dinner Auction on
Saturday, April 5, at The V by
HH.
Were inviting back all the
alumni, dating back to 1951,
when the school was founded, so
there should be a good turnout,
organizer Kim Larson said.
Blast to the Past in Plaid is
the theme for the event, which
will include the sisters of St. Tim-
othys alumni staff.
The event will kick off with a
beef and pork tenderloin dinner
and a silent auction from 5 to 7
p.m. A tribute to the school will
take place at 7 p.m., with the live
auction following at 7:30 p.m.
Items include Poolside with
the Padres, featuring Father John
Meyer and Father Michael Izen; a
Hawaiian Cruise pontoon ride
on Maple Lake; quilts; and stu-
dent-made stained glass projects;
among several other items do-
nated by parishioners and parents
of students.
Additional items are still being
accepted.
Following the auction, raffle
winners will be announced. This
year, the winner will have a choice
between a 2014 Ford Focus SE
from Morries Buffalo Ford or
$10,000 in cash. Second place
will take home $500, third place
will be worth $200 and the next
three places will pay $100 each.
Raffle tickets are close to being
sold out, but are still available at
St. Timothys School and Parish
offices, Star Bank, Rogers BP
Amoco, Irish Blessings Coffee-
house or by contacting Larson at
612-247-8029.
Tickets for the dinner and auc-
tion are available at the school or
parish office, Star Bank or by con-
tacting Larson.
At the door, ticket prices will
be more expensive, so interested
individuals are encouraged to buy
tickets early and plan to attend the
schools largest fundraiser.
Its great to pull the commu-
nity together to support the school
and show how proud we are of St.
Tims, Larson said. Its a night
full of fun and entertainment.

This is the time of year that panfish fishing on local lakes should be
hot, but this isnt a normal year so that isnt happening. Its possible to
get a meal if youre not too fussy about the size. They were biting on
Rock Lake last Thursday morning when I elected to walk out from the
access rather than splash through the water which was accumulating there.
After I had five on the ice I figured they were biting well enough to give
Daryl Hennen a call, suggesting he and his grandson, Logan, may want
to get in on the action. Logan had a week off from school in Stillwater
and was staying with Daryl and Kathy. Thursday was our warm day for
last week and there wasnt any wind so we could tough it out without any
shelters. It didnt take long for Logan to figure out how to go about setting
the hook and start reeling under the toutorage of his granddad even though
the bite had slackend off. Fortunately they seemed to have the hot hole
and started sorting out the keepers. They figured they needed about 13-
15 for Friday nights meal and with six from me they had enough about
the same time Logans yawns suggested it was getting close to his nap
time. Being the good grandpa Daryl is, he commented the nap idea might
be good for both of them. Anyway, I stuck around until I had two more
keepers and figured I had enough for a meal with the open package at
home before I hung it up, too. Two guys from Howard Lake fished across
the lake and were coming off about the same time and commented they
had done okay, but there, too, it took a lot of sorting. . . I went
back to the same lake late Sunday morning and had the lake to myself for
an hour or so. A portion of the access area had re-frozen, but I still elected
to hike out, walking on a previously flooded trail. While I was fishing a
pickup drove out where I had walked and he didnt break through so I
could have driven had I wanted or had been brave enough. Anyway, it
was another couple of hours of sorting, moving around from hole-to-hole
before I had enough for another meal. Being the eternal optomist, fishing
can only get better before we lose the 32 inches of ice still out there. After
seeing the story in the Sunday Tribune about the north end of Maple Lake
as having a partial freeze-out, I gave the Montrose Fisheries office a call
to find out if it was open to liberalized fishing. The answer I got from
Mark Pelham was no, because at this point its only a partial freeze-out.
So dont head out there with your nets yet or you might get pinched.

This has been an unusually cold winter which some blame on a polar
vortex which has become a favorite phrase with those reporting the
weather. Were still running way below normal temperatures which might
be good for the sappers who are collecting sap for Maple syrup, one of
the benefits of having cold nights and warmer days. Another term the
weather people may want to use is winter-weary which Id say is af-
fecting abaut 99% of Minnesotans who figure enough is enough. In-
clement weather apparently doesnt affect dogs as much as humans and
Vanna seems to take it all in stride. She may show a wee bit more enthu-
siasm on warmer days, but that may be because different scents are more
prominent on warmer days. I havent seen any skunks yet, but they may
be smart enough to stay holed up until it gets warmer. Another positive is
this kind of weather should lessen the flooding problems parts of Min-
nesota and North Dakota seem to have each spring. Im seeing a few roos-
ter pheasants, but no hens, which has me a little concerned. A pair of
Canada geese visited us Thursday at Rock Lake and there was a lone eagle
perched in a tree not far from the access, apparently keeping an eye out
for a free meal of fish. People are seeing a fair number of deer and turkeys,
so they apparently have survived, despite the cold and long winter.

Incidentially, your fishing license expired March 1, and if you dont
want to be listed in cuffs and collars its time to get a new one. So to keep
fishing, youll need to purchase a 2014 license. DNR officials say with a
so many different purchasing options available, there really is no reason
not to have your license when hitting the lake. Actually there is a smart
phone app that you can get them with and that will send you an electronic
copy or license right to your phone, Luke Belgard of the Minnesota DNR
said. You can still do it the old fashioned way. Go to the bait shop or gas
station that sells them, too. You can do it that way to get your license.

Question: I watch my neighbors
almost every day pull up to their
mailboxes on the shoulder. The
road has a shoulder, but traffic still
has to move over to center line. It
looks very unsafe. I have watched
traffic flash their lights and honk
their horns, but they keep doing it.
What is the rule of the road in this
case? I know it would be a lot safer
if they just pulled into their drive-
way and walked to the mailbox,
but that doesn't work in a "me-me"
society. Note: they pull into the on-
coming shoulder.
Also, while driving home the
other night, a car was turning left
into a driveway. I was the third car
behind the turning car. I slowed and
moved a little onto the shoulder.
The two cars in front of me passed
on the right of the turning car. The
truck that was behind me could not
get past me and was livid! Honking
and yelling and flying the bird. I
felt bad to slow him down but I
know better than to pass on the
right. Was I in the right to block the
shoulder of the road? Thank you.
Answer: You cant lawfully
drive over the center line (the
wrong direction) for any reason ex-
cept to make a safe and legal pass.
If there is a crash, there is going to
be trouble, for sure. It would be a
lot safer (though technically not
legal) if it was on a dead end road
out in the middle of nowhere, or on
a cul-de-sac or similar, but we see
this being done on hills and in no-
passing zones!
For the passing on the right part
of your question, you can be over
to the right of your lane, but if you
are stopped and are parked on or
over the white fog line (marking
the shoulder), then you could be li-
able in a crash. Worse yet, you
could get hit and injured or killed
(along with someone else). We ad-
vise not to do that. Passing on the
right is against the law unless there
is a lane provided like a bypass
lane or if you are driving on a
multi-laned highway. A driver can
never use the shoulder of a road
(paved or unpaved) or a turn lane
for passing on the right. It is not
safe, and not legal, so we are asking
drivers not to do that.
If you have any questions con-
cerning traffic related laws or is-
sues in Minnesota, send your
questions to Trp. Jesse Grabow

Highway 10 West, Detroit Lakes,
MN 56501-2205. (You can follow

BULLYING BILL
This week, the Finance Com-
mittee passed the Bullying Bill
(HF 826) to the Senate floor. I am
against bullying, but I believe the
best means to prevent bullying is
through local control rather than a
state run bureaucracy, such as the
Department of Education. Local
school boards will be charged $20
million per year and parents will
have no knowledge of whether
their children are being bullied or
are bullies.
TAX BILL
The Tax Bill was another
major headline at the Capitol this
week and was passed today. It in-
cludes some immediate relief for
overtaxed Minnesotans, but still
results in a net $1.7 billion tax in-
crease for the budget cycle. De-
spite the adjustment passed in this
tax bill, the net result is still a $1.7
billion tax increase for the budget
cycle.
This bill is a start, but falls
woefully short considering there is
a $1.2 billion state surplus that
falls on the backs of Minnesota
taxpayers. This bill only provides
$431 million in tax relief, which is
only 1/3 of the surplus. Democrats
will spend the rest. This bill only
corrects a few of the mistakes of
the 2013 session there is nothing
new here that will help taxpayers
or spur economic growth. These
are not tax cuts we are passing
today - the net result of the adjust-
ments in this bill is still a $1.7 bil-
lion tax increase for the biennium.
Minnesota would not be in this
position if Democrats had listened
to Republicans last year when Re-
publicans urged them not to pass
these harmful taxes or they had
fixed their mistakes at any time
over the past year.
Republicans support keeping
money in the Minnesota economy,
in the pockets of hard working
taxpayers across the state. Gov.
Dayton and the Democrats have
already increased spending more
than 10%, and their current pro-
posals call for even more wasteful
government spending. Republi-
cans trust Minnesotans will make
better decisions with their money
than anyone in St. Paul.
HONOR AND REMEMBER
FALLEN SOLDIERS
This week the Senate Rules
Committee heard one of my bills
designating the Honor and Re-
member Flag as an official symbol
of the state's commitment to mili-
tary service members who have
lost their lives in service to our
country and encourages display of
the flag on certain days in certain
public locations. This flag is a
symbol of remembrance and
thankfulness to the soldier and his
family who paid the ultimate price
serving their country. At this time,
this bill has not had a hearing in
the House, so it remains to be seen
if it will eventually get to the Sen-
ate body for a full vote.
Keep in Touch
I believe strongly in constituent
services so please contact me with
questions or comments or if you
need any assistance on a state gov-
ernment issue.

News from the Capitol
by Sen. Bruce Anderson
Dear neighbor,
Last week the legislature finally
passed legislation that brings Min-
nesotas tax code in alignment with
some provisions of the federal tax
code in tax year 2013, with the
other major provisions starting in
2014. This bill also repeals the
sales tax on commercial/industrial
equipment repair, warehousing
services and telecommunications
machinery and equipment starting
April 1, 2014. Governor Dayton
signed the bill on Friday.
While Im happy we were able
to repeal the job-destroying busi-
ness-to-business taxes that were
enacted by the Democrats last year
and Im glad that Minnesota tax-
payers will be able to keep more of
their own money, Im disappointed
it took the legislature until mid-
March to fix these problems with
the April deadline to file taxes
quickly approaching. Reportedly,
an internal dispute among DFL
legislative leaders about a wasteful,
lavish, $90 million office complex
for state senators was the reason for
the delay.
While the bill passed last week
is a good start, it still falls short
considering there is a $1.2 billion
surplus. Notably absent items:
Increased Standard Deduction
for married joint filers, which
would have saved 640,000 married
couples an average of $112 per re-
turn for tax year 2013.
Retroactive repeal of business-
to-business sales tax that went into
effect in 2013, which would have
returned $55.9 million to hard-
working Minnesota taxpayers.
According to the Minnesota
Department of Revenue, if you are
affected by these tax changes and
have already filed your return, one
of three things will occur:
The Minnesota Department of
Revenue will fix your return and
send a letter explaining what was
fixed
The Minnesota Department of
Revenue will request more infor-
mation from you so they can fix
your return
The Minnesota Department of
Revenue will notify you they can-
not fix your return. If this happens,
you will need to file an amended
return.
So much more needs to be done
in Minnesota to make us an invit-
ing place to do business. According
to the Tax Foundation, Minnesota
ranks 47 out of 50 nearly dead
last in their 2013 State Business
Tax Climate Index.
If you have any questions about
these tax changes or concerns
about any state legislative issue,
you can contact me by e-mail at
Rep.Marion.ONeill@House.MN
or call my office at 651-296-5063.
You can also write a letter to me.

Legislative
update
by Rep. Marion ONeill
As a Minnesotan in training,
Ive had a lot to cheer for over the
past few weeks.
First, I was cheering for the
University of Minnesota mens
basketball team to sneak into the
NCAA tournament. Unfortunately,
that didnt happen and they had to
settle for a No. 1 seed in the NIT.
With the help of home-court ad-
vantage, they were able to win
their first two games and a win
against Southern Miss will put
them in the next round in New
York.
Their female counterparts are
competing in the WNIT and have
also won their first two games, set-
ting up a road game against South
Dakota State University.
While the NIT and WNIT
arent the preferred postseason
destinations, at least both teams get
to extend their seasons for them-
selves and their fans, while also
gaining more experience for future
years.
The Golden Gopher womens
hockey team hoped to use their ex-
perience as back-to-back champi-
ons to three-peat at the 2014
NCAA Womens Frozen Four na-
tional championship game, but
came up just shy of that goal with
a 5-4 loss to Clarkson University.
Their male counterparts on the
ice are just getting started, as
theyll face Robert Morris at 4:30
p.m. Saturday at the Xcel Energy
Center. That game will be dele-
vised on ESPN2. I wish them the
best of luck.
If they get a W, they may run up
against the defending champion
Huskies from St. Cloud State Uni-
versity. They start their tournament
play against Notre Dame at 8 p.m.
Saturday, which will be televised
on ESPNU and Watch ESPN.
I, for one, think it would be
pretty cool to see two Minnesota
teams battle it out again, so heres
to hoping that happens.
In addition to cheering for the
success of Minnesota teams, Ive
also been able to cheer for teams
from my home state.
The Iowa Hawkeyes somehow
earned the right to play Tennessee
for a chance at the real Big Dance.
They forced the game into over-
time, at which point they decided
to give up. Considering their brief
run, Im still wondering how they
got the nod over Richard Pitinos
squad. Oh well, theyll both get an-
other chance next year and both
teams should have a legitimate
chance at making noise during
March Madness.
Thats what my favorite home
state team, the Iowa State Cy-
clones, have been doing. As ex-
pected, they took care of business
against North Carolina Central.
However, they lost one of their top
players, Georges Niang, to a bro-
ken foot in the process. Without
him, North Carolina became the
favorite in Sundays game, but ISU
pulled it off in dramatic fashion.
Im looking forward to see if they
can keep the momentum going
against Connecticut. I hope so,
considering I picked them to make
it to the Final Four.
At the same time, Minnesotan
Kat Perkins is representing the
state in a different kind of bracket
on The Voice. Ive been a big fan
of the show since the second sea-
son and enjoy it that much more
when I have someone to cheer for.
A couple seasons ago, it was
Nicholas David who represented
Minnesota well, as he finished
third.
As a rocker, Perkins is nothing
like her Minnesotan predecessor,
who was a blues singer to the core.
She also didnt intend to audi-
tion for The Voice. However, a
YouTube video of her singing at an
airport in Amsterdam caught the
eye of the shows producers and
she agreed to try out for the show.
Not only did she turn three
chairs, but she also won her first
battle against Patrick Thomson to
continue advancing. Keep an eye
on her as she continues to make a
name for herself.

Three retire from Chatham Township
There were five respondents to
the request for proposals, but only
two vendors met the criteria of
having at least three Minnesota
clients operational to advance
LETG and Zuercher Technology.
The base bid from LETG was
$127,000, but didnt include sev-
eral items that the Zuercher pro-
posal contained. When those
things were factored in to make an
apples to apples comparison,
Behnke said, the Zuercher bid was
actually $29,000 less.
Behnke and Wright County I.T.
Director Bill Swing both praised
the Zuercher bid, since the com-
pany has worked with Cass, Todd,
Travers, Nobles, Rock, Steele and
Cottonwood counties. Swing
praised the company because of its
exhaustive follow-up support,
which will make the system virtu-
ally self-sufficient and not depend-
ent on the I.T. professionals for
ongoing maintenance.
The proposal is going to take
a lot of the weight off of the I.T.
department for the maintenance of
the system, which is significant,
Swing said. In many respects, it
would be a turn-key system that
would have a lot of benefit to the
sheriffs department and have ex-
pertise and support that it will take
a lot of the workload off of us in
I.T.
The board unanimously voted
for the county to enter into con-
tract negotiations to finalize the
purchase of the public safety soft-
ware and get the process going for
an anticipation launch this sum-
mer.
In other business, the board:
Acknowledged receiving $1.4
million in legacy funding for con-
tinued land acquisition for the
Bertram Chain of Lakes Park,
which represented more than 40
percent of the total grant money
awarded in the current grant cycle.
The grant calls for a county match
of more than $400,000, but Parks
Administrator Marc Mattice said
the purchase wouldnt take place
until 2015 and the local match
funds can be discussed during the
countys 2015 budget process this
summer.
Adopted a resolution creating
the Bertram Chain of Lakes Advi-
sory Council, which lays out the
basic framework under which the
county and the City of Monticello
will define responsibilities for the
operation of the park.
Authorized signatures on a
quit claim deed to resolve a
boundary discrepancy in the
Bertram Chain of Lakes Park.
Scheduled the annual
Boy/Girl Day at Wright County
for Tuesday, April 22.
Approved seeking three
quotes for repurposing the former
sheriffs administrative office for
expansion of the assessors office.
The preliminary cost estimate was
$47,500. The current assessors
office may be used to relocate a
portion of the county attorneys of-
fice, but there is no current plan set
for the office space.
Appointed former Wright
County Planning and Zoning Ad-
ministrator Tom Salkowski to rep-

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!

A big factor in battling hunger in
rural communities might just be
the people who are already feed-
ing the world. Six food banks
serving Minnesota are asking
farmers to participate in Feeding
America's Invest an Acre program
by pledging revenue from their
2014 crop, with the goal of having
1,000 acres pledged in Minnesota
this year.
The Invest an Acre program is
simple: Farmers are asked to visit
HarvestToEndHungerMN.org and
pledge the revenue from an acre,
bushel or any amount of their
2014 crop to help fight hunger in
their own communities. When
harvest nears, farmers will be re-
minded to go online to create a do-
nation form to bring to their local
elevator with their grain donation.
One hundred percent of the dona-
tion stays in the farmer's commu-
nity, and all of the money goes
directly to buy food for hungry
families. The Monsanto Company
matches the farmer's donation,
dollar for dollar, up to $675,000,
doubling the impact.
"Families who live in our rural re-
gions where food is grown face a
number of challenges that put
them at even greater risk of
hunger, including a lack of trans-
portation, more remote social
service agencies and tight employ-
ment," says Rob Zeaske, chief ex-
ecutive officer of Second Harvest
Heartland. "Farmers already play
such a crucial role in ending
hunger in the state, and the Invest
an Acre program gives them the
opportunity to combat hunger in
their local communities."
Hunger is an often hidden problem
that is affecting seniors, working
families and children in rural as
well as metro areas one in 10
Minnesotans is at risk of missing
a meal on any given day. Invest an
Acre is part of a larger initiative to
actively engage farmers in com-
bating hunger, Harvest to End
Hunger MN. The second arm of
the program is Share Fresh MN, a
fresh-produce donation program
that accepts unharvested or unsold
produce from farmers.
After donating for the first time to
his local food bank, corn farmer
Gary Pahl of Pahl Farms in Apple
Valley, Minn., said, "With every-
body's combined efforts, we can
make a difference in this world.
We can make a difference locally
and on a statewide basis."
The coalition of participating food
banks includes Channel One Re-
gional Food Bank, Great Plains
Food Bank, North Country Food
Bank, Inc., Second Harvest Heart-
land, Second Harvest North Cen-
tral Food Bank and Second
Harvest Northern Lakes Food
Bank.

Acre and Harvest to End Hunger

Improvement
The kitchen is perhaps the
most functional room of any
home, but often it doesnt
feel large enough or flexible
enough. And great cooking
starts with a comfortable
kitchen.
While renovating your
kitchen may not always be
practical, there are steps you
can take to improve it with-
out breaking the bank or
your kitchen walls.
Here are a few ways to
make the most of your
kitchen:
Evaluate Your Kitchen
Its time to weed out the
good, the bad and the ugly.
When is the last time you did
a thorough inventory of your
kitchen gadgets? After sev-
eral years without an assess-
ment, its possible youve
acquired a substantial collec-
tion of electric openers,
dicers, slicers and spinners.
If all these tools help you
cook, thats fabulous. If not,
they are simply taking up
valuable cabinet, cupboard
and countertop space. Take a
look at what you have and
eliminate anything thats du-
plicative, broken or some-
how unnecessary.
Improve Functionality
Re-think your appliances.
These days, you don't need
to settle for antiquated appli-
ances that perform just one
function. Innovations are
making cooktops and ovens
more functional and versa-
tile, providing greater oppor-
tunities for spatial kitchen
layout.
For example, you could
pair a gas cooktop with an
electric oven or install elec-
tric ovens side by side. Con-
sider appliances from such
brands as Verona, an Italian
manufacturer that applies ex-
tensive cooking expertise to
built-in ovens, cooktops and
ranges. Inspired by classical
Italian designs, their hand as-

Tips to Improve Your Kitchen Without Renovating It
sembled cooktops and ovens
offer a choice of fuel type so
you can mix and match radi-
ant, induction and gas heat
sources. Information is avail-
able at www.VeronaAppli-
ances.com.
Flexibility is also being
built into todays appliances.
For example, ILVE cooktops
come equipped with an ex-
clusive, one-of-a-kind re-
movable griddle that allows
for numerous food prepara-
tion options on an all-in-one
cooking surface. You can
steam, grill, warm and more
with the included griddle --
eliminating the need for ad-
ditional space-hogging appli-
ances like steam ovens and
warming drawers.
This is a great way to be a
more flexible cook in a small
amount of space. More infor-
mation on flexible cooktops
is available at www.ilveap-
pliances.com.
Maximize Storage
Creative storage solutions
will increase your work area
and cabinets, while affording
more space to move around.
For example, an over-the-
door spice rack can give you
more room to prep food. A
wall-mounted wine rack that
holds both bottles and
glasses can free up cabinet
space and reduce the furni-
ture footprint of your
kitchen. Magnetic panels on
the wall can be used to store
pots, pans, knives and metal
utensils.
When it comes to your
kitchen, dont settle for any-
thing less than top-notch,
flexible appliances and an
ideal use of the space you
have. Whether youre a seri-
ous chef or a casual cook,
your kitchen can benefit
from key upgrades and a
thorough organizational
sweep. (StatePoint)

If your home was built be-
fore 1978 and you still have
the original windows, it's
time to seriously consider re-
placing your windows -- es-
pecially if you have young
children or a pregnant person
living at home.
According to the Environ-
mental Protection Agency
(EPA), the routine opening
and closing of windows in
homes built prior to 1978 can
disturb lead-based paint
around the windows, causing
paint dust and chips to be re-
leased into the air. These lead
particles are so potentially
dangerous that the EPA now
requires contractors to be
trained and certified before
they can perform any renova-
tion, repair or painting proj-
ects that may have previously
applied lead-based paint.
"Research indicates that
the everyday activity of
opening and closing windows
creates friction that then al-
lows invisible lead dust to
enter the air," says Rick
Nevin, a consultant to the
National Center for Healthy
Housing (NCHH). "Young
children, who crawl on the
floor where the lead dust has
settled, can be especially at
risk. Toddlers put their hands
in their mouths ... and after
playing on the floor near a
window, they can easily
transfer the lead dust into
their mouths. The ingested
lead travels through the
bloodstream to a child's de-
veloping brain, causing many
types of neurobehavioral
damage."
According to Nevin, one
of the most important long-
term investments a home-
owner can make for the
overall safety of a family is
to replace older windows,
using the EPA-approved lead
safe renovation guidelines.
"Replacing older windows
is one of the best ways to re-
duce lead risks," says Nevin.
"Make sure to use only a
contractor that is certified in
lead-safe work practices and
strongly consider the use of
ENERGY STAR(R) qualified
windows, like the vinyl re-
placement windows offered
by Simonton Windows(R).
These windows are a healthy
choice for replacing older
single-pane units. They're en-
ergy-efficient and a good
value for the investment."
"At Simonton, we advo-
cate that replacing older win-
dows coated with lead-based
paint with vinyl windows is a
sensible step for homeowners
who want to create a health-
ier home environment," says
Gary Pember with Simonton
Windows. "We believe Rick's
research substantiates the re-
placement of all windows
coated with lead-based paint
as a way to dramatically help
reduce lead dust within that
home."
Nevin explains that, ac-
cording to his research
funded by the National Insti-
tute of Health (NIH), home-
owners need to understand
there are four key steps to
completing a "lead-safe win-
dow replacement strategy"
for the home.
"First, they advise replac-
ing all single-pane windows
with ENERGY STAR quali-
fied windows," says Nevin.
"Second, stabilize any signif-
icantly deteriorated paint.
Third, perform specialized
cleaning to remove any lead-
contaminated dust. And fi-
nally, perform dust wipe tests
to confirm the absence of
lead dust hazards after the
clean up."

The home improvement in-
dustry has grown considerably
over the last several decades,
as homeowners increasingly
took steps to turn their homes
into personal oases. But such
projects often produce sub-
stantial amounts of waste,
negatively impacting the envi-
ronment as a result.
According to the United
States Environmental Protec-
tion Agency, an estimated 170
million tons of building con-
struction, renovation and dem-
olition-derived wastes were
generated in 2003, a year
when the housing market was
thriving and homeowners
were not shying away from
costly home improvement
projects. With the housing
market once again on the re-
bound, the home improvement
industry figures to benefit
once again. There are steps
eco-conscious homeowners
can take to reduce waste while
improving their homes.
Save salvageable materi-
als. Some materials simply
must be discarded when mak-
ing improvements to a home.
But many more materials can
be salvaged. When making
renovations to a home, sepa-
rate materials like lumber,
hardware, fixtures, and even
appliances that can be sal-
vaged from those materials
that must be discarded. Many
communities are home to or-
ganizations that collect sal-
vageable materials, and these
materials can be reused by fel-
low homeowners or other or-
ganizations down the road.
Speak to contractors about
recycling. Contractors work-
ing on a home typically know
which materials can be recy-
cled in a given area. When
discussing prospective proj-
ects with contractors, home-
owners can mention their
willingness to recycle materi-
als. Wood is a versatile mate-
rial that can be turned into
reclaimed or composite wood
products, including decks or
other items used around the
home. Old wood being re-
moved from a home may even
work as mulch, which home-
owners can spread around
their yards to add aesthetic ap-
peal and protect plants on hot
summer days. Even asphalt
and concrete can be recycled
into new products, and home-
owners should discuss their
wishes to recycle as many ma-
terials as possible.
Choose recycled content
building materials. Another
way to reduce home improve-
ment project waste is to make
use of other homeowners' dis-
carded materials. Recycled
content building materials are
products that include materials
recycled from previous proj-
ects. These once-sparse mate-
rials are now commonplace,
and labels often include the
percentages of postconsumer
and recovered materials used
in each product. Materials
such as drywall, insulation,
kitchen countertops, glass
tiles, carpeting and carpet
padding may include recycled
content, and the growing pop-
ularity of such products has
made them relatively simple
for homeowners to find. When
working with contractors,
homeowners should empha-
size their desire to use materi-
als made from recycled
content. Such materials are
both pleasing to the eye and
the environment.
Embrace adaptability
when designing a new home.
Rarely do homeowners design
their homes with renovations
in mind. When building a
dream home, homeowners do
not consider the likelihood
that they will one day move
out or even outgrow the home.
Estimates vary considerably
with regard to how long the
average homeowner stays in
his home, with some suggest-
ing as little as seven years.
While data collected from the
United States Census Bureau
within the last decade suggests
that roughly half of all home-
owners had lived in their
homes for at least 10 years.
Homeowners building new
homes should expect to one
day move, and ensuring their
new homes are easily adapt-
able is both financially sound
and eco-friendly. When a
home is built with adaptability
in mind, prospective buyers
won't have to make costly
overhauls. In addition, homes
built to facilitate future reno-
vations won't produce the
same amount of waste as
homes that are less easily
adapted.
Many homeowners embrace
home improvement projects as
opportunities to turn their
homes into private sanctuar-
ies. But those who do so with
the environment in mind can
significantly reduce waste and
still end up living in luxury.

your knuckles about 100 times a
day. It feels so good! Happiness

good story and reading it over
again. It is being in the middle of
a book and having a mystery to

Steve attended St. Cloud Vo-Tech,
receiving a degree in welding. He
worked with welding for a short
time after which he worked with a
company building pole barns.
In 1976, he moved to Montev-
ideo and started his own Service
Master Cleaning Service, which
he worked very hard at. Steve met
Lisa Tostenson in 1987 and they
married in 1993. Together they
have three children. In 1989, he
started Sun Brite Cleaning Serv-
ice, adding wood floor refinishing
to the business. He could make an
old wood floor look amazing. He
was proud of his business and
worked many holidays and week-
ends. He was also very proud of
his son and how he jumped in and
ran the business while he was ill.
Steve enjoyed snowmobiling,
taking many trips up north. He
also enjoyed four-wheeling, just
having purchased a new side-by-
side four-wheeler. Hunting and
fishing with the guys was some-
thing he always enjoyed and came
with many stories. He enjoyed
racing, having sponsored Butch &
Troy Berends Race Cars. He also
threw darts in many leagues, win-
ning many trophies and playing
cards. His favorite vacation spot
was the Black Hills area, traveling
there with his family several
times.

The project, consisting of street
improvements, water main re-
placement and sewer repairs, in-
cludes Linden and Park avenues,
as well as portions of Division
Street. The current estimated total
project cost is $1,445,500.
Proposed special assessment
rates are as follows: $1,030 each
for individual water service re-
placement (from street to home),
$920 each for individual sanitary
sewer service replacement (from
street to main), $71.20 per assess-
able foot for street reconstruction
and $7.50 per assessable foot of
Linden and Park avenues, and
$10.42 per assessable foot for lat-
eral sanitary sewer repairs on Di-
vision. Assessments would be
payable in equal annual install-
ments over a period not to exceed
15 years, at an annual interest rate
not to exceed 5.5 percent. Con-
struction is tentatively slated to
begin in May.
City attorney Rhonda Pagel
told council members they had the
ability to move ahead with the as-
sessment and delay award of the
contract until some time in April,
allowing staff time to review any
impact the objections might have
on the financial piece of the proj-
ect.
Obviously, if you decide not
to award the contract, youre not
going to move forward with the
assessment, Pagel told council
members, adding that the council
would retain the power to pull
the plug on the project at any
time before a contract is awarded.
Adopting the assessment,
Kissock noted, would keep the
clock ticking on the project sched-
ule.
It also gives us time to really
listen and understand, provide in-
formation, address each of the ob-
jections and have that 30 days to
mull those over, she said. And
at the end of those 30 days, if we
still feel that those objections are
insurmountable, then we cancel
it.
One year ago, a public hearing
for these same improvements was
hosted and various concerns were
also raised at that time by the pub-
lic. A month later the council
opted to delay the project, eventu-
ally renaming it the 2014 Street
Improvement Project.
George Eilertson of Northland
Securities was present at the meet-
ing to present the timing and
structure of a finance plan relating
to the issuance of general obliga-
tion improvement bonds and,
should the council eventually vote
to proceed with the project, to re-
view the terms of a financial advi-
sor agreement between the city
and Northland Securities.
If we were at the point tonight
of considering calling for the bond
sale, it would take place mid-
April, he told the council.
The bonds have been struc-
tured with a 15-year financing
term, which is consistent with
other projects the city has financed
in the past. Revenue sources the
city would utilize to pay debt serv-
ice include special assessments, a
portion of water and sewer utility
payments and overall tax pay-
ments from the citys entire popu-
lation. Offering to assist with
providing information on specific
special assessment terms and tax
impact schedules, Eilertson said
the 5.5 percent interest figure is
based on the current bond market.
The council will review the
filed complaints over the coming
month and make a final decision
on the project at its next meeting.
In other business, the council:
Heard from Northenscold
that the Planning Commission has
delayed a public hearing on the
citys updated comprehensive
plan until May.
Approved payment No. 7 of
$19,742.85 for the Inflow and In-
filtration Reduction Project to
SAK Construction.
Approved by a 4-0 vote the
2015 fire department budget of
$203,500, with council member
Bart Lauer abstaining due to his
fire department membership. The
budget reflected no increase this
year, as the department makes its
increase requests every three
years. The most recent increase
was for the departments 2013
budget.
Approved preliminary and
final plats for the Maple Lake
Commercial Center (planned site
of a future Dollar Store, to be lo-
cated at the corner of Spruce and
Geneva), contingent upon ease-
ment vacation and the developer
entering into an agreement for site
plan approval.
Voted to apply for a grant
from the Occupational Safety and
Health Administration (OSHA)
for $3,496.56 to pay for a manhole
lid-lifter and a cut off saw with a
cart water tank (for cutting up
blacktop and concrete) to reduce
the risk of injury to maintenance
workers. The purchase of an addi-
tionally suggested water tower
mixer, which would reduce the
risk of freezing, was not approved,
in accordance with recommenda-
tions by maintenance and engi-
neering staff.
Heard from Pagel that staff is
moving forward with revisions to
a lease that AT&T has proposed to
place nine antennas on top of the
Maple Lake water tower, and de-
clined an offer by Utility Services
to negotiate and enter into an
agreement with AT&T on behalf
of the city.
Heard from City Clerk Lee
Ann Yager that Cheryl Pullins has
been hired as part-time office staff.
Directed economic develop-
ment director Paul Bilotta and city
staff to prepare proposals for po-
tential revolving loan and tax
abatement opportunities for the
Maple Lake Veterinary Clinic,
which is currently under construc-
tion on Hwy. 55, west of H&H
Sport Shop. Doctors Carl Larson
and Dean Hawkinson told the
council they hope to be open for
business by April 21.
Acknowledged, with thanks,
donations from the Maple Lake
Lions of $750 for the Maple Lake
Chamber of Commerce and $150
for the Maple Lake Ambassadors.
The councils next meeting is
Tuesday, April 15, at 7 p.m.
City council

This group of master musi-
cians has accomplished things that
no other band has done. In 2002,
they won the Rockygrass Band
Competition in Lyons, Colo., and
first place at the 2003 Telluride
Bluegrass Festival Band Contest,
making them the first band to win
both contests. They went on to
win the 2005 Society for the
Preservation of Bluegrass Music
in America International Band
Championship in Nashville, mak-
ing them the only band to ever win
the top three major national band
competitions.
Rebecca Frazier holds the
honor of being the first woman to
be on the cover of Flatpicking
Magazine, the September 2006
issue. She received the Interna-
tional Bluegrass Music Associa-
tion Recorded Event of The
Year award in 2009. She was a
featured artist on the Curb
Records 2012 release The Last
Ride the soundtrack to the movie
of the same name. She has been in
Minnesota before and said she
loves to come back to the Mid-
west because of how friendly and
warm the people are. She is joined
in the band by her husband and
fellow founding member John
Frazier.
He is a multi-instrumentalist
and is proficient on the guitar, fid-
dle, piano, and organ and is
known as one of the nations top
mandolinists. He has toured with
Steve Martin and the Steep
Canyon Rangers, the John Cowan
Band and others. He writes many
of the bands original songs.
Kyle Tuttle, banjo ace and
Georgia native, held down the
banjo work and wowed audiences
with his lightning fast, three-finger
style playing. Tuttle has played or
toured with the likes of Peter
Rowan and Victor Wooten. He is
a product of the Berklee College
of Music in Boston. He has been
a finalist at both the Walnut Valley
and Merlefest Banjo Champi-
onships.
Returning to Minnesota was
fiddle master Christian Ward who,
at 22-years-old, has a string of
band memberships under his belt.
His first trip to Minnesota was
with the California-based Chris
Stuart and Back Country Band in
2007 as a junior in high school.
Later, he toured for two years with
Sierra Hull and now with Hit and
Run.
Royal Masat, of Alba, Texas,
rounds out the band. A veteran of
many bands, he has been playing
for more years than one would ex-
pect, considering hes also only
22-years-old. He started playing
professionally in his familys band
and, most recently, was a member
of the extremely popular brother-
and-sister act The Roys backup
band.
Traveling with the band on this
tour and providing professional
sound reinforcement was Daniel
Rice of Gravity Boots Recording
Studios in Nashville. Gravity
Boots is a full-service recording
studio and audio provider that is
Rices main business although he
is an accomplished guitar player
as well.
Opening the show at 8 p.m.
was St. Paul-based Minnesota
Blue, a band based in Americana,
blues, country and bluegrass
music. They are frequently found
at bluegrass and other music fes-
tivals in the Upper Midwest.
Barbara Yotter is the bands
main vocalist and fiddle player.
She studied classical violin and,
around 20 years ago, discovered
bluegrass music, found her
singing voice and has been with it
ever since. She performed with
Backroads Junction from 1991 to
2004 and has been with Min-
nesota Blue ever since.
Kelton Parrish plays lead and
rhythm guitar for the group and
assists with singing duties and
sings backup harmony as well.
Parrish hails originally from
Texas, where he played in several
bluegrass bands before relocating
to Minnesota. Kelton and Yotter
were the 2009 Minnesota Duet
champions in the annual competi-
tion at the Minnesota State Fair,
winning over 17 other duos.
Paul Johnson plays Dobro with
Minnesota Blue but is a multi-tal-
ented musician with talents in
many directions. He also plays
fiddle, keyboard and lap steel in
the country band Lightning Creek.
His musical accomplishments are
many and cover music types from
bluegrass to klezmer to orchestral
and country. He has composed
music for film and symphony or-
chestra and played double bass in
a symphony orchestra as well. He
says he hasnt done it all but not
for lack of trying.
Following Fridays concert,
Hit and Run moved on Saturday
to headline the annual Cabin
Fever Festival in Duluth. After
that, it was on to Stillwater for one
last concert before heading back
to the much warmer climate of
Nashville.
