Keep our Earth clean


and stay green.
April 22 marks the 45th anniversary of Earth Day, considered to be the beginning of the
modern day environmental
movement.
At its beginning in 1970, air
pollution was considered unavoidable and the effects of industrial air and water pollution
were considered to be the hallmarks of a healthy business climate.
Today nearly 200 countries
worldwide host events to
demonstrate concern and support for environmental protection.

Arbor Day, April 24th.
As a formal holiday Arbor
Day was first observed in 1872,
by 1920 it was recognized by
over 45 states and territories.
Today, Arbor Day is celebrated
in all 50 states.
Show the world you have
faith in future generations, plant,
nurture and celebrate trees.
Trees are very much a part of
the fabric of life and of the community. They provide both physical and emotional landmarks
marking childhood adventures,
romantic walks, and lazy Saturday afternoon picnics. They
evoke memories and help to establish a sense of place, meaning
and belonging. Putting trees into
peoples hands following loss
serves to lift spirits, restore
hope, and help to begin the healing process.

Trevor Pribyl, diagnosed with


a brain stem tumor four years
ago, had a pretty big request
when his Mom, Rachel, asked
what hed like to do for his 10th
birthday. The St. Tims fourthgrader told her, Mom, I want to
have one of your fun parties for
my whole class and I want to
take all the presents and give
them to other sick kids at the
hospital.
Family friend, Heather
Haney, took his request one step
further inviting facebook friends
to Pack the Suburban, hoping
that when Trevor makes his next
trip to the University of Minnesota on April 27 hell be handing out quite a few more gifts
than the 15 or 16 his classmates
will bring to his birthday party
on Saturday.
I saw when his Mom posted
on facebook that he wanted to

have a party and bring all his


presents to kids at the hospital. I
responded that wed like to donate something too, said Haney.
Then, the more I thought about
it, the more I thought, I bet more
people would like to send a gift
too- thats when we came up
with the Pack the Suburban
idea.
Anyone wanting to help
Pack the Suburban can drop a
gift with Anna Pribyl at Lake
Central Insurance, with Heather
Haney 763-528-0555, or at
MLHS to either Heather Haney
or Mr. Youngs, or the Pribyls
house 763-688-1025. Unwrapped gifts are the best so
Trevor knows who each gift
should go to.
In light of Mondays appointment, the family would like to
have all gifts collected by this
Saturday, April 26th.

Horatio Alger Award

Publisher

The Horatio Alger Association of Distinguished Americans


hosted its 68th Horatio Alger
Awards in Washington, D.C. on
April 9th to the 11th. Students
who receive the Horatio Alger
scholarship are recognized for
their commitment to continue
their education and serve their
communities despite facing
great adversity. The weekends
events included a formal induction ceremony and focused on
the association's 12 new Members as well as the 106 National
Scholars selected from across
the United States. One of those
106 scholars honored was
Heather Blahut, a MLHS senior
who was recently named one of
Maple Lakes Ambassadors.
When Blahut was asked to
attend an all-expense paid trip to
Washington, D.C. for the National Horatio Alger Scholars
Conference, she didnt know
what to expect. Parents were
asked to stay at home and not
accompany their child so that
the scholar could totally focus
on the conference. After boarding a plane alone the Wednesday before the conference,
Blahut arrived in D.C. and was
instantly welcomed and put at
ease. Even before arriving at

Brutes
Bleat
by Harold Brutlag
Saturday afternoon seemed like a good day to take my fishing boat
for that pre-season run to find out if the electronics, livewell, trailer
lights, etc. were operating properly. It seems like trailer lights, especially on older equipment, need a bit of attention each spring. Most
of the time its the ground wire that is the culprit and that was my
problem before I got going Saturday. I decided Rock Lake would be
as good as any, especially with a east wind. I remembered to put the
drain plug in the boat before I launched which wasnt always the case
last year, and that can be embarrassing. Everything seems to check
out mechanically once I tightened up the connections on the starting
battery. I noticed right off there didnt seem to be any bugs on the
water and thats usually means its too early for fishing panfish. I tried
a variety of dark spots for crappies and after a couple of hours of hunting without getting a bite I called it quits, went home, and took out a
couple of packages of sunnies for Sunday nights dinner. . . Now
its a matter of waiting out this weeks cold snap before I try fishing
again. .
. On Wednesday I had a call from Mike Muller who
had just got off Lake Okeechobee in Florida where he and his fishing
buddy, Jessie, had boated 65 sunfish and one 3.5 lb. catfish. Muller
said the action was great and most of the sunfish were three-quarter
pounders. He figured he missed on about 20 when he set the hook or
they would have had more sunfish. The limit down there is 50. Muller
said he could have used an umbrella while fishing because the temp
topped out at 97 degrees with no wind. Anyway he had the sunfish
cleaned ($18.00 plus a tip) and planned to keep some to eat and distribute the rest to people hes become acquainted with over the years.
I came across this beginning of a beaver dam on the creek that runs
out of the pond in Ney Park one day last week. Often referred to as
Natures engineers, the beavers, who begin their day about dusk, have
a good start damming up the creek which empties into Silver Lake.
They have lots of the small trees and some larger ones already cut

Its in
your court
by Judge Steve Halsey
Name That Judge
In 2010 on the network news the anchorman briefly interviewed
United States Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer. The anchor
asked if it bothered him that more Americans can name all of the
Three Stooges than can name any of the Supreme Court justices.
Justice Breyer replied that he is not bothered by that fact, but is bothered if Americans do not understand that we have three branches of
government: executive, legislative and judicial. He said that the
most amazing aftermath of the Bush v. Gore decision (in which he
dissented) was that there wasnt a violent revolution with guns. This
certainly has been commonplace in South America and Africa over
the past 50 years.
If you are reading this article you most likely live in the Tenth
Judicial District comprised of eight counties: Anoka, Chisago, Isanti,
Kanabec, Pine, Sherburne, Washington and Wright. There are 45
sitting judges in these counties, the second most in any district in
Minnesota, right behind the Fourth Judicial District (Hennepin
County).
A list of the judges by county is at:
http://www.mncourts.gov/default.aspx?page=25&menu=county;
and biographies of these judges is at: http://www.mncourts.gov/default.aspx?page=25&menu=all
So here is a quiz:
#1 - Name each of the five judges pictured below.
Hint: some are TV judges.

# 2 - Now name the movie in which these judges appeared


and the actor who played the judge.

Citing the school districts financial condition and a decrease


in enrollment as cause, the Maple
Lake School Board voted Monday, April 13, to terminate the
probationary contracts of three
teachers, effective at the end of
the current school year. The contracts of high school teachers Andrew Boman, Heidi Noerenberg
and Justin Roob will not be renewed for the 2015-2016 school
year.
The thing I want to make totally and perfectly clear, said
Superintendent Mark Redemske,
is that this has absolutely nothing to do with performance.
With a large class graduating,
the resultant lost revenue and reduced need made the terminations an unhappy but necessary
choice, he said, adding, all three
of these people have done everything weve asked, and theyve
done it well. These are some
good young educators I hate to
let them go.
In a background memo to the
board, Redemske had made note
that at the boards March 9 meet-

time licensed staff positions


plus additional reductions of educational programs and positions
to make up for the Alternative
Delivery of Specialized Instructional Services (ADSIS) grant, in
the event that the district does not
receive that funding for the 20152016 school year. Since that
meeting, the Quality Compensation for Teachers (Q Comp) Advisory Board has approved using
up to $85,000 from the Q Comp
fund balance to cover a loss of
the ADSIS grant, if not renewed.
The reductions in staff include
one science teacher, one math
teacher and one social studies
teacher from the high school.
Scheduling the high school students into classes was going to be
a bit difficult, Redemske added,
but High School Principal Dave
Hansen plans to include a few
hours of social studies, math and
art overloads into the high
schools schedule. After calculating these reductions and adding
the overloads, wringing a few
more dollars from the supply
budget and using projections

work was performed a couple of


years previously, an incorrect
gauge had been installed by a
subcontractor, and that broke
during spring break. Consequently, a large amount of heating oil was lost. The City of
Maple Lake, the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency and the
International Energy Agency
were contacted to oversee
cleanup operations.
It seems to be taken care of,
Redemske said. We have been
in contact with our insurance
agency, which, in my opinion,
shouldnt pay a penny. Weve
been in contact with Siemens, the
contractors, and also with the
subcontractor, to alert them to
make their insurance company
aware of this, because thats
where I feel it should be taking
care of. Right now, things are
taken care of, and Im glad this
happened in March and not in
January, because it wouldve
been much bigger problem in
January.

The Bethlehem United


Church of Christ in Maple Lake
celebrated Lent this spring with a
special guest speaker who may
have opened their eyes a little to
the broader world.
Rev. Leah Benemerito, a conference minister from the United
Church of Christ in the Philippines, spoke to the Bethlehem
UCC congregation, Wednesday,
March 25, about being a church
in a global world.
Our Christian call to combat
poverty and injustice for all people everywhere doesnt mean
asking what can I do for you?
but what can we do together,
Maple Lake BUCC minister
Michael Fritz said, paraphrasings Rev. Benemeritos presentation.
It's easy to lose track of the
global perspective of being the
church, and a special guest like
Rev. Leah is a great way to be reminded that our Christian sisters
and brothers aren't just the ones

we see in our little corner of the


world, Fritz said.
Some 31 members of Bethlehem UCC attended the event
after their traditional simple soup
dinner to celebrate the Lenten
season.
According to Fritz, the Minnesota Conference of the UCC
has a historic relationship with
the UCC of the Philippines and
Rev. Benemerito is spending this
year as a visiting scholar at
United Theological Seminary, a
UCC seminary located in New
Brighton.
Maple Lake is one of many
communities Rev. Benemerito
has visited this year, but according to Fritz, she particularly enjoyed seeing Maple Lake because
the rural landscape showed her a
side of the state she doesnt get to
see in the metro area.
It was a unique opportunity
for a rural church like ours to
have an international speaker,
and a neat way to make that
evenings service a special one,
Fritz said.

For the last several years, it


has been no secret the owners of
Advanced Disposal Systems
Rolling Hills Landfill had plans
to expand their landfill the only
operating landfill in Wright
County. But, at the April 14
meeting of the Wright County
Board of Commissioners, the request was taken off the table at
the request of the landfill owners.
Initially, Advanced Disposal
Systems was looking to rezone
323 acres of agricultural land to
an industrial designation to build
a 72-acre landfill that would take
municipal household waste. The
current facility only takes industrial waste and demolition debris.
As the process went on, ADS altered its proposal to have the
footprint size reduced to 118
acres.
Commissioner Pat Sawatzke
said the outcome seemed clear
when the committee of the whole
met March 31 to discuss the matter at a public hearing. While
committees dont have votes that
are binding, considering all five
commissioners recommended
denial of the request, the handwriting seemed be on the wall.
In committees we dont
make motions and seconds, we
make
recommendations,
Sawatzke said. We had a unanimous recommendation to have
the county attorneys office to
prepare findings consistent with
a denial. The most obvious issue
was the fact that the land use
plan calls for that area to be agricultural and this was an industrial request.
As the only operating landfill
in Wright County, it would seem
the only area that could have future expansion in the county, but,
prior to the April 14 meeting,
ADS sent the county board a letter officially requesting the item
be withdrawn. It was a move designed to keep the landfills options open to potential bring
forward an alternate proposal
without having a waiting period,
which would have happened had
the request officially been denied
by the county board.
By withdrawing the application, there is no negative finding
on the record from the county
board, Assistant County Attorney Greg Kryzer said. If there is
a denial in a request like this,
typically that means the applicant cant re-apply for one year.
With the item being withdrawn,
if they want to come back with a
different proposal, there isnt that
one-year prohibition.
The county has been carefully
wording documents and getting
an exhaustive record of what is
said at meetings. The previous
owners of the same landfill got
into a protracted legal battle with

the county when the county got


into the composting business.
Given their past experience, a
court reporter was in attendance
both at the committee meetings
and the April 14 board meeting.
The rationale for that was the potential for litigation, so the
county wants to have a comprehensive review of the statements
that were made during the meetings discussing why the application was going to be denied.
Kryzer said he is unaware of
any plans for the landfill to reapply for a rezoning request, but
the county is standing by its decision to recommend denial of
the proposal.
The committee of the whole
ruled that the proposal didnt
meet the threshold of the goals
and policies land use plan in the
Northeast quadrant of the
county, Kryzer said. The committee felt that the proposal conflicted with the land use
designated for that area. Where it
goes from here, I have no idea.
In other items on the April 14
agenda, the board:
* Laid over a request to approve a season on-sale liquor license to Woodland Hills
Vineyards in Franklin Township.
The Vineyard and a wine license
for tastings on site, but is looking
to add tastings of craft beers due
to numerous requests from patrons. The problem is that the
vineyard may not meet the definition of an operation that is capable of being issued a liquor
license. The law states that establishments like clubs, restaurants
and bowling alleys in townships
qualify, but there are questions as
to whether the vineyard qualifies
under the state statute.
* Approved a memo of understanding with the International
Union of Operating Engineers
Local 49 authorizing four 10hour workdays effective the third
Monday in
April through the third Friday
in September.
* Authorized a final payment
of $5.000 to Safety Signs of
Lakeville. The company won the
countys bid for the township
signing project in 2013, a contract that was worth $1.02 million. The project began in 2013
and was finalized earlier this
year.
* Approved Commissioner
Christine Husoms appointment
of Kim Spadgenske to the
Wright County Extension Committee. The term of the appointment will run until Dec. 31,
2016. The appointment of Spadgenske is to replace Dick Behm,
who was unable to complete his
three-year term that was set to
expire at the end of 2016.

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!

my cover because I got to do all


my favorite things on the computer. I liked writing my research report. I got peace and
quiet. I want to write one next
year.
Levi Smail - I like writing
my research report because I
like to read books. I thought it
was a great book about Eygtains. It was really fun to learn
how to print a cover. Writing the
research report was interesting
too.
George Elsenpeter - I like
my research report because it
was interesting. I learned a lot
of stuff from my book about
night animals. I learned that
porcupines could roll up in a
ball.
Porter Pribyl - I liked writing my research report because
I learned a lot about things

under the sea. I had no problem


finding the main things and details. I dont want to write a research report next year because
I did one this year.
Danica Hageman - I liked
writing my research report because dogs are my favorite animals in the world. It was fun to
make the cover. Dogs hve fun
with people. They are happy to
have a family in thir hearts. A
wild dog is good at catching animals. I had fun writing my report. I want to write another
one. A dog has a lot of puppies
and are really cute. Puppies love
to bark. I love puppies a lot.
Rachael Warner - I liked
my research report because it
was super fun to do. I got to
write a bunch of words and it
was fun. Eggs are interesting
and chicks too. I am going to go
bird watching when I get home.
Larson Melgaard - I liked
writing my research report because I learned about bears. We
worked on it every day. Bear
cubs are cute. I like reading it to
the class.
Alex Sheldor - I liked my research report becaus I got to

learn about the Romans. It was


easy. Romans are interesting becaus they believed in gods and
godesses.
Ben Ogram - I liked writing

was interesting learning about
castles and how knights got on
their armor. I also liked getting
facts on wars. It was very easy
to do. I liked making my cover.
We got some time to think. I enjoyed when everybody read
their report because I learned
many different things.
Alicia Goelz - I liked writing
my research report because I
like to write. I learned so much
about caterpillars and butterflies
from the book. It was fun to
make the cover.

tree? How could it be? A tree has


leaves. I took one bite and, poof!
I could change it to whatever I
wanted to.
Joe Neutz - After I planted a
jelly bean I made it turn into a
jelly bean tree with jelly bean
bushes. Then I planted one more

jelly beans.

old men.

a jelly bean it literally started
raining cats and dogs.
Skyler Marschel - After I
planted a jelly bean it grew into
a big big red and all the colors of
the rainbow jelly bean. I went to

was so big it exploded all over
me. I liked it but it tasted like dog
poop.
Ben Holland - After I planted
a jelly bean I watered it for two
minutes and a tree came up with
jelly beans on it. Then the jelly
beans started to fall off the jelly
bean tree.
Third grade

bean and the next day it started
to rain. Then the next day I saw
so many jelly beans I had to use
the leaf blower to get rid of some
of them.
Joanna Hall - It started raining jelly beans and I laughed because Riley was out there but
when he came in and it stopped.
That surprised me because when

raining again, but when I went

Is Riley cursed?

started raining jelly beans I ate
them and got a tummy ache.
When I went outside I got hit on

raining jelly beans I ate some of
them and shared some with my
friends and family. Then we all
played in the jelly beans.

a 200 foot giant. I climbed on it
and saw an even bigger jelly
bean with a big pencil.
Adison Gorres - After I

popped up and then more popped
up. I backed up and grabbed
more jelly beans and planted
them.
Paige Sanders - It started
raining jelly beans and I woke up
and looked out my window.
Then I got dressed I ran down
stairs and went outside. I did not
like it out there because I got a
whole bunch of bruises so I went
back in and went to bed.
Alice Ketchum - it started
raining jelly beans so I opened
my mouth and waited until my
mouth was full of them. Then I
chewed and chewed them. Then
a great big one fell and my
friends and I ate it. Yummy!

raining jelly beans so I ate them.

started raining jelly beans I went
outside and started eating them.

planted a jelly bean a huge tree
came out of the ground with jelly
beans on it.

A writing recognition program from students
at St. Timothys School

Mrs.
Krutzigs
second
graders at St. Timothy School
spent the month of March writing research papers. Last week
the students wrote opinion
pieces on what they thought
about this writing project
I liked...
Calleigh Stai - I liked my research report because I love
writing about animals. I have
four animals. I learned lots
about cats. I like cats because I
have two cats at home. First, I
had to read the book about cats.
I loved all of that writing. I really had fun coloring the cover
for the book. I will love next
years research report.
Luke Carlson - I liked writing my research report because
I learned more then I knew
about trucks. I loved making

Tanya Malwitzs 2nd and 3rd


grade students used their imagination when asked to write about
jelly beans.
Second grade
Cameron Wagner - It started
raining jelly beans and I went
outside and got a basket to collect the jelly beans. Then I went
inside and a jelly bean monster
formed so I went back outside
and ate it.
Avery Larson - After I
planted a jelly bean it grew huger
and huger every day. A week
later it was as big as a house and
the next day the jelly beans were
as big as a tree. I got my ladder
and picked all of them with some
help.
Natile Proffit - After I
planted a jelly bean I saw a little
thing that I didnt know what it
was at first. Then it started growing and growing.
Lydia Jostock - It started
raining jelly beans and I made a
kingdom out of them. The queen
had a dress decorated with jelly
beans and a crown decorated
with jelly beans. Then I saw
something cute as a jelly bean
kitty and I took care of it.
Molly Wurm - One day it
started raining jelly beans and I
ate all the good ones and caught
all the rest of them and brought
them home. I made a castle out
of the jelly beans, jelly bean
clothes, and everything out of
jelly beans.
Rachel Knott - After I
planted a jelly bean I saw a little
sprout. Could it be a jelly bean

already knew all about frogs.

School Board
continued from page 3
MP NexLevel came in on
Wednesday of spring break, Redemske said, and had hoped to
have work completed by Friday,
but an unforeseen necessity to
replace some corroded pipes led
to a delay of two more days.
Some concrete needs to be replaced, which will be seen to
this summer, and a new meter
must also be installed. Centerpoints original cost estimate
had been $20,000, but necessary
additional work has brought the
cost up to $28,458.
Nevertheless,
Redemske
said, a number of maintenance
items will still be addressed
over the summer, including
crack filling, striping, curb and
crosswalk painting in all parking lots, concrete repairs to sidewalks, roof repairs as necessary,
re-crowning of both the game
and practice football fields, and
the installation of drainage tile
near the east side of the track
and practice football field. Hallway baseboards will be replaced
at the elementary school, and repairs will also be made to a retractable wall in the elementary
gymnasium. These maintenance
items are expected to cost
around $79,000. Roof fall protection and painting of playground equipment have already
been covered at a total cost estimated to be not more than
$5,000. Additional items of concern include the stadiums press

box roof, the elementary boiler


room and replacement of the
schools wireless system, but
Redemske said the finance committee will need to explore ways
to fund these matters before
they can be addressed.
Heard from Redemske that
a recent regional meeting of
Schools for Equity in Education
confirmed unanimous concern
over all of the education funding
proposals the state legislature is
considering this session. Noting
that Gov. Dayton has proposed
increasing the general funding
formula for school districts by
only one percent in both fiscal
years 2016 and 2017, Redemske
said, The problem is, he wants
to throw a good deal of money
at education, but a lot of it is for
preschool. And nobody would
argue that that could be a very,
very valuable program. But
some of these school districts
struggle just to have enough
room for all-day kindergarten.
And quite frankly, maybe we
should fund the programs we already have first. And theyve
done a very poor job of that, the
legislature and the governor.
While it remains to be seen
what will ultimately be decided,
Redemske expressed little faith
that school districts will see
much of the states nearly-$2
billion surplus.
I mean, how long are they
going to put a stranglehold on us

and tell us to run our schools at


high efficiency and not give us
the money to run them? he
asked. It gets pretty irritating
after a while. I dont know
whether the governors more
worried about his legacy of allday kindergarten and urban
child programming, or what the
case is. But it needs to be more
than one percent. One percent
doesnt even cover our steps and
lanes and insurance for our
staff.
Approved new driver education information and costs.
Requirements, updated to address legislative changes and
provide consistency in charges,
will include a supervised driving log and behind-the-wheel
record of all at-home driving
time. Students attending Maple
Lake High School will be
charged $50 for classroom training, and students attending elsewhere will be charged $65. The
cost for behind-the-wheel training will be $265 for students attending Maple Lake High
School, and $290 for students
attending elsewhere.
Approved updates to the
following district policies:
School Weapons, Curriculum
Development, Staff Development for Standards and Student
Transportation Safety.
The next regular school
board meeting will be Monday,
May 11, at 7 p.m.

Spring cleaning bird feeders and bird baths essential


Bird watching is a pastime
enjoyed by people of all ages.
While many people trek into the
woods to see their favorite
birds, homeowners can take
steps to entice these fascinating
and feathered friends right to
their backyards.
Step one is to provide food,
shelter and places to wash up or
cool off. Installing a bird feeder
and a bird bath in your yard is
one way to attract a bevy of
winged creatures that can provide hours of enjoyment.
Establishing a bird-friendly

environment may seem as simple as hanging a feeder on a


pole or tree and erecting a bird
bath nearby. But a certain level
of maintenance is needed to
keep birds healthy and happy.
According to the experts at
the Bird Watcher's Digest, recent research indicates feeders
can sometimes be a source of
disease for the birds visiting
them. The Audubon Society
echoes that warning, saying that
bird feeders and baths can serve
as transmission stations for diseases such as aspergillosis,

avian pox and salmonellosis.


Recently, scientists noted that
the spread of trichomonad protozoan parasites is on the rise,
especially among mourning
dove and band-tailed pigeon
populations.
Such warnings are not meant
to deter budding birding hobbyists. Organizations like the
Audubon Society hope that
such warnings send the message that disinfection and maintenance is necessary to maintain
sanitary environments for birds.
Doing so is relatively easy and

Pruning trees may be a


job best left to the pros
Bountiful, healthy trees can
be beautiful to behold and important contributors to a thriving environment. According to
American Forests, a nonprofit
conservation organization, a
tree can absorb as much as 40
pounds of carbon dioxide per
year and can sequester one ton
of carbon dioxide by the time
the tree reaches age 40. The
United States Forest Service
adds that trees placed properly
around a home can reduce air
conditioning and heating demands considerably.
Many homeowners are content to leave healthy trees alone.
However, trees eventually must
be pruned or removed if they
become safety risks or pose
other threats. Trees with roots
that are damaging home foundations or those with limbs
overhanging property limits or
power lines can be troublesome. Although homeowners
can handle relatively minor tree
maintenance, for a variety of
reasons, many tree projects are
best left to the professionals.
Avoiding injury is job one.
Professional tree contractors
recognize and understand the

hazards associated with tree and


limb removal. Many operate in
accordance with national or
local guidelines to maintain
proper clearance of power lines
and structures.
Trimming trees close to electrical lines puts a person at risk
of being electrocuted. Professionals know how to protect
themselves and prevent power
outages, which can result when
limbs come into contact with
power lines.
Professional tree services
will use machinery appropriate
for the task. Cherrypickers and
cranes may lift workers to the
correct height to work on trees,
while do-it-yourselfers who
rely on climbing trees or using
ladders are at risk of injury.
The importance of preventing damage to the tree.
Many tree services understand the proper way to prune
trees to minimize stress and
damage to the tree itself.
Novice pruners may inadvertently do more harm than good,
resulting in proliferation of tree
disease or shock. Improper
pruning technique also can lead
to an unsightly tree.

Liability is a responsibility.
A professional tree service
will possess the correct liability
and worker's compensation insurance. This protects homeowners against litigation should
someone be injured while tree
work is being done.
Homeowners who damage
neighboring properties when
cutting down a tree may find
that they are not covered by
their homeowner's insurance
policies. This can be a costly
mistake that's easily avoided by
simply hiring a fully insured
tree removal service.
Always use the right right
tools.
The right tools can mean the
difference between a job done
correctly and one that results in
disaster. Professional arborists
and tree services have acquired
the training, tools and techniques to perform the job
safely. This includes using the
right tools to tackle the job.
Ropes, pulleys, cranes, stump
grinders, and other heavy machinery are just a few of the
tools tree services have at their
disposal that the average homeowner does not.

well worth the time for birding


enthusiasts.
The Humane Society of the
United States advises cleaning
hanging feeders once every two
weeks or more often if they're
heavily used. Ground-feeding
designs should be cleaned every
two days. Feeders can be immersed in a very-diluted solution of bleach to water (nine
parts water to one part bleach).
Let soak for a few minutes, and
then scrub the feeder with a stiff
brush or scouring pad before
rinsing. Allow the feeder to dry
completely before refilling it
with seed.
Bird baths should be emptied of water often. Brush or
wipe the bath clean, then rinse
and refill with fresh water. Do
not leave standing water undisturbed for long or bird baths
will become a breeding ground
for mosquitoes and other para-

pings.
If you notice birds look sick
or are not acting strangely, halt
feeding and bathing to prevent
healthy birds from becoming
ill. Wait a week before resuming feeding and notify wildlife
officials if you find dead or sick
birds around your property.
Locate feeders and baths at
least 30 feet away from windows so birds do not get confused by reflections and collide
with the glass
Store seed in a dry container with a tight-fitting lid to
prevent mold from forming and
moisture from getting in.
Creating a thriving habitat
for bird watching is easier than
one might think, but once birds
begin visiting a yard, homeowners must diligently maintain clean feeders and bird baths
to ensure the birds stay as
healthy as possible.

sites.
Frequently collect discarded seed hulls and clean bird
droppings from beneath feeders. If the area around the
feeder has become especially
soiled, relocate the feeder elsewhere and clean its initial location.
Follow proper instructions
with regard to seed and other
bird food. For example, reduce
the amount of suet offered in
hot weather. Heat can cause
suet to spoil, and sticky suet can
become stuck in birds' feathers
and make it hard for them to
keep clean.
Try to provide more than
one feeder and bird bath to prevent overcrowding. Crowding
can contribute to the spread of
disease.
Do not situate feeders and

Irish softball even at home Irish baseball win three at home

Tayler Pilger was safe at home. The Irish beat the Kimball Cubs 15-0.
By Brenda Erdahl
Sports Writer

The Maple Lake softball team


lost one and won another at two
home games last week.
On Monday, April 13, the
Irish hosted Rockford, a tough,
state-tournament qualifier who
has been the home teams top
rival for the Central Minnesota
Conference title for the last several years.
Despite hitting the ball well
and serving up some well-thrown
pitches, the Rockets managed to
slip by the Irish 7-6 for the early
season victory.
Maple Lake was home again
on Tuesday, April 14, as hosts for
the young but competitive Kimball Cubs. Again the Irish had
some strong at-bats and senior
pitcher Kennedy Haney threw
some top-notch pitches on the
teams way to a commanding 150 win over the cubs.

Both were conference matchups.


Rockfords pitcher is one of
the best that we will see all year
and will be playing college softball somewhere, coach Tim
Knudsen said. Kimball is young
and very competitive. They are
improving each year.
The wind made playing ball
tough for both sides, Monday
night. The Irish struggled especially with throwing errors
against the Rockets and gave
them some extra outs.
We need to clean that up,
Knudsen said. We also need to
be more aggressive on the bases.
We cant leave runners in scoring
position.
The Irish played better on
Tuesday against Kimball, tallying up 16 hits, 15 runs and only
two errors. The home team gave
up only five hits and no runs during the five-inning game.

Ellie Haney was hit by a wild Kimball pitch, but was well
enough to continue playing the game.

This week is a busy one for


the Irish with six games including two at home and one double
header.
They kicked off the week on
Monday, April 20 at home
against Browerville-Eagle Valley. The Irish expected to go up
against the state qualifying team
at half strength since most of
their players would be out due to
confirmation. On Tuesday, April
21, they were scheduled to travel
to Howard Lake-Waverly-Winsted to take on the rivaling Lakers.
On Thursday, April 23, Maple
Lake will travel to Pierz for a
doubleheader. Games start at 4
p.m. and 5:30 p.m.
Friday, April 24, is the much
anticipated contest against New
Life Academy at home at 4 p.m.
According to Knudsen, the rivalry between the Eagles and the
Irish goes back to 2008 and 2009
when they beat Maple Lake two
years in a row in the state championship game.
This is a huge game for both
of us, Knudsen said. This game
will be fun to watch.
The Irish will end the week on
Saturday, April 25, at 11 a.m.
against St. Cloud Cathedral at
Whitney Field in St. Cloud.

Boys golf win first CMC meet of season


Borell takes medalist honors
By Brenda Erdahl
Sports Writer

Maple Lake boys golfers took


a commanding lead in the Central Minnesota Conference after
winning a seven-team conference tournament last week to
kick off their season.
Brandon Borell was the
meets top scorer, Thursday,
April 16, at the Kimball Country
Club. He shot a 37 for the Irish
to earn medalist honors. Aiden
Jude and Jeremy Mills each shot
a 42 and Peyton Beehler shot a
44 to make up the teams winning score of 165.
Also shooting for the Irish
were Jordan Mills who shot a 49
and Cody Welch who shot a 48.
The guys played very well
and we were able to get a great
jump on the conference leading
by 21 strokes after the first
meet, coach Aaron Hegle said.
As a team we shot the best team
score since I've been the head
coach. These guys worked very
hard last summer to get better
and it showed. They deserve it.
Borells 37 also puts him at

the top of CMC standings to kick


off the season.
Brandon obviously played
very well and came back strong
after he doubled bogeyed his first
hole Hegle said.
Finishing second as a team
was Eden Valley-Watkins-Kimball who shot a 186 on their
home course. Rockford, a section opponent, was third with
187 and Osakis was fourth with
191.
Howard Lake-Waverly-Winsted, the other section opponent
at Thursdays meet, finished with
a 208 for sixth place.
The Irish were to travel to
Shadowbrook on Tuesday, April
21, where HL-W-W were to host
another CMC tournament.
My guys know that this was
only one meet and know they
need to continue to get better and
improve throughout the year to
achieve our team goal of winning the conference, Hegle said.

Pitcher Dusty Strub tried to get the out at home plate, but the Zimmerman runner was
safe. The Irish beat Zimmerman 13-3 at Irish Stadium, Friday, April 17.
By Brenda Erdahl
Sports Writer

Irish varsity baseball went 30 at home last week, cruising to


wins over Rockford, Spectrum
and Zimmerman.
The home team kicked off its
winning ways on Monday, April
13, when they jumped to an early
lead over Rockford and finished
with a 12-0 victory.
The Irish put up eight runs in
just the first three innings. Jack
Seibert started them off with a
three-run home run in the first;
Dustin Strub had a sacrifice fly
and McRae Haney contributed a
two-run double also in the first.
The second inning was marked
by Cal Redemskes RBI single.
Maple Lake added four more
runs in the fourth started by a
Nate Maas single.
Irish pitcher Tony Goelz kept
Rockford off the scoreboard all
five innings.
A Central Minnesota Conference opponent, the Rockets had
a good squad last year that finished second in the CMC behind
Howard Lake, coach Brooks
Marquardt said. They are playing this season without their two
senior starters that were arguably
the best two pitchers in the conference last year.
On Tuesday, April 14, the
Irish took on Spectrum, a section
team that is still trying to build
and establish their baseball program. Maple Lake dominated the
Sting 10-0 in five innings.
The Irish were able to put
some runs on the board early
with help from Nate Maas RBI
single and a groundout by Haney.
By the third inning they were up
6-0. Maple Lake then tacked on
four more runs in the fifth.
On Friday, April 24, the Irish

took on their final, and


arguably best team of
the week, Zimmerman, according to
coach Marquardt.
Maple Lake beat
the Thunder 13-3 in
six innings thanks in
part to a seven-run explosion in the third inning.
Redemske racked
up three RBIs on two
hits including a threerun home run, and Cal Redemske slid into second base

The Catch
by Jeff Plattner
2015 NFL Draft:
Vikings Outlook
The 2015 NFL Draft is less
than ten days away and for the
fourth time in the last five years,
the Minnesota Vikings have a top
twelve draft pick. With one of the
previous three a definite bust
(Christian Ponder) and another
looking like a bust (Matt Kalil),
its imperative the Vikings hit on
the No. 11 overall pick this year.
In a moment, well look at the
Vikings top needs by position
and what players could have their
name called when Minnesota is
on the clock. But first, heres how
the draft may play out in front of
the Vikings. Well mock draft
picks 1-10 and in ten words or
less, break down each pick.
1. Tampa Bay Buccaneers:
Jameis Winston, QB, Florida
State You need a franchise QB
to compete in todays NFL.
2. Tennessee Titans: Marcus
Mariota, QB, Oregon Titans
likely trade pick, plenty of teams
interested in Mariota.
3. Jacksonville Jaguars
Leonard Williams, DL, USC
Vic Beasley, Dante Fowler fill
needs, but Williams too tempting.
4. Oakland Raiders: Kevin
White, WR, West Virginia I
would take Amari Cooper here,
but theyre the Raiders.
5. Washington Redskins
Dante Fowler Jr., DE/OLB,
Florida Skins need pass-rush,
toss-up between Fowler and
Beasley.

6. New York Jets Amari


Cooper, WR, Alabama With
Decker, Marshall, now Cooper,
no more excuses for Geno.
7. Chicago Bears Vic
Beasley, DE/OLB, Clemson
Bears must get more pressure on
Aaron
Rodgers,
Matthew
Stafford.
8. Atlanta Falcons Randy
Gregory, DE, Nebraska Need
for high upside pass-rusher outweighs his character concerns.
9. New York Giants Brandon Scherff, OT, Iowa Eli has
been sacked sixty-seven times,
last two seasons.
10. St. Louis Rams DaVante Parker, WR, Louisville
Rams defense is stacked. Foles
needs a legit deep threat.
11. Minnesota Vikings Trae
Waynes, CB, Michigan State
Since Aaron Rodgers took over
the reigns for Green Bay, in 2008,
the Vikings have spent twelve
draft picks on DBs. Theyve
missed on every one with the exception of their two first
rounders, Harrison Smith and
Xavier Rhodes. With their terrible track record of drafting DBs,
it would be a good idea to grab
Waynes here and fill other needs
later. Waynes should step in and
start opposite of Xavier Rhodes,
from Day 1.
Vikings other top needs:
Offensive Line The
Vikings need an OG and in case
you were hibernating last winter,
LT Matt Kalil took an enormous

step backwards in 2014. If


Waynes is off the board, the
Vikings may look for some insurance along the offensive line, in
the form of Iowas Brandon
Scherff or LSUs Lael Collins.
Linebacker They signed
Casey Matthews, but that still
leaves plenty of room to improve
at the MLB position and Chad
Greenway isnt getting any
younger. Theres a chance that
Scherff, Waynes, and the top
three WRs could all be gone before the Vikings pick at No. 11. If
that happens, do they look to
trade down, take Lael Collins to
fill their OL need, or take a guy
like Nebraska OLB Randy Gregory, whos a top five talent, but
could fall in their lap because of
his recent positive marijuana
test?
Wide Receiver The offseason signing of Mike Wallace is
nice, but the Vikings better keep
him happy or his stay in Minnesota could have a disastrous
ending. Much like Kalil, Cordarelle Patterson saw huge regression in 2014. Once Adrian
Peterson was suspended, teams
were able to key solely on Patterson and the second year player
was not up to the challenge. One
would assume hes spent a large
part of the offseason working on
his route running and other receiving skills, but regardless, the
Vikings can still use another
weapon at WR. If Bridgewaters
old Louisville teammate DeVante
Parker if off the board, the
Vikings could grab WR help in
rounds two or three, as the pool
is deep on the WR end this year.

Horatio Alger Award


continued from page 1
At the first meeting of the
conference speakers talked
about how much of a life-changing experience this whole thing
would be and according to
Blahut she still didnt really believe that she was one of the
honorees. She thought to herself, thats what they all say.
As the day progressed, she
started believing that this wasnt
just a nice little vacation to visit
the sites of the nations capital,
this was the real deal.
Day two started off with
meeting Supreme Court Justice
Clarence Thomas. According to
Blahut, Thomas talked to the
group for what seemed like minutes, but in reality he kept the
students enthralled for over two
hours. Blahut said that Thomas
was so inspiring and she was
honored to speak to him after his
lecture and ran into him quite a
bit throughout her trip. Other in-

spirational people Blahut met


were Robert Brown, a civil
rights leader who was Martin
Luther King, Jrs best friend and
Ambassador Bonnie McElveenHunter who was the first female
Chair of the Board of Governors
of the American Red Cross.
Meal time during the trip
meant dining with extremely
successful individuals, including
former National Horatio Members award winners. One of
those members she was David
Novak, the Chairman and CEO
of Taco Bell, KFC, and Pizza
Hut. Another was Tom Sellick, a
2000 Horatio Alger Award Winner. According to Selleck, he
was certainly not an overnight
success. It has been 11 years
from the time Fox had dropped
his contract until the pilot for
Magnum was sold. He told
Blahut, "My road to success was
complicated. It was not a

straight shot. There were many


failures along the way, but I believe one of the privileges we
have in this country is the right
to fail. In the entertainment business, failure is heightened. I've
taken some huge risks with my
career, which doesn't mean I've
always been right, but it does
mean I've never second guessed
myself." Selleck said he was
used to handling failure, but success was another story. "Magnum changed my life for the
better and worse," he said.
"There are huge consequences to
being a public person." Rather
than run from his fame, however, Selleck says he has tried to
put the access it has given him to
good use. He served, with Barbara Jordan, as co-national
spokesperson for the Character
Counts Coalition, which works
to improve the ethical quality of
society. He has also served as the
spokesman for the Los Angeles
Missions for the Homeless, as
well as the National Fatherhood
Initiative. Selleck says his Horatio Alger Award is one of his
greatest honors. "I have a typical
American success story," he
said. "My life has had its challenges. Certainly, nothing was
handed to me. But with hard
work and perseverance, I was
able to achieve my dream. I was
lucky to have parents who may
not have been able to help me fi-

nancially, but from whom I drew


great strength. They set a good
example for me to follow. I've
lived in nearly all strata of financial situations, but through all
those stages I've kept the same
core values they instilled in me.
Some of her treasured trip
memories included attending
one of the only events in the
Supreme Court and having dinner in the State Department
where she met actor John Paul.
She said that her favorite part
of the trip was meeting the hundreds of other recipients and
making connections that will
stay with her forever. This experience was definitely life
changing and one that I will
never forget, said Blahut. We
are 106 out 40,000 students that
applied in the United States that
received the National Horatio
Alger Scholarship. My mother is
definitely proud of me.
One of the points Justice
Clarence Thomas made that really stuck with Blahut is that you
are not a victim, you are a hero.
Heather Blahut, Maple Lakes
first ever Horatio Alger scholar,
said, most of the time people
want to victimize others with adversities, but what Ive learned
is that we are at an advantage.
This experience has motivated
me to want to become someone
successful so that I can return
the favor that was once.

Running Back I dont
want to get into the whole
Adrian Peterson situation, but IF
he is traded, the Vikings will
clearly need more help at the position. Wisconsins Melvin Gordon and Georgias Todd Gurley
headline a strong group of RBs.
The crop is deep enough where
Minnesota could get a solid contributor in the middle rounds.
Will the Vikings grab Minnesotas David Cobb (3rd-4th
round grade) or NDSUs John
Crockett (7th round grade)? We
shall see!
Great teams are built in the

The Maple Lake boys and


girls track teams posted one
more win each to their season
records by earning top honors at
a five-team Howard Lake-Waverly-Winsted
Invitational,
Thursday, April 16.
The boys tallied eight first
place individual finishes plus
several runner ups. They dominated in the jumps especially,
placing first, second and third in
the high jump, claiming the top
two spots in the pole vault and
winning the long jump.
Scott Jordan and Tyler
Cranston had season best scores
of 11-feet, 6-inches and 10-feet,
6-inches for first and second, respectively in the pole vault.
We are still in the stages of
trying kids in different events,
and some really responded
well, coach Ben Youngs said.
The boys 4x8 ran a 8:25
which coaches hope will qualify
them for the Hamline Elite Meet
on Friday, April 24. In that relay,
Devin Deringer took the place of
an injured Jackson Willard and
ran a very solid 2:07 split,
Youngs said.

The boys 4x4 ran a 3:37 and


all ran great splits. That group
consisted of Austin Stuefen,
Charlie Stejskal, Andrew Schonnesen, and Ryan Kalinowski.
On the girls side, Brielle Paumen, an eighth grader, won the
200-meter dash and Brynn Paumen placed third.
Brielle and Brynn Paumen
showed great promise in the 200
with personal bests, Youngs
said.
Sommer Carlson won the
3,200-meter run in 13:13 and
Brynn Paumen won the high
jump.
Jordan Sifferle had a good
day according to coaches, earning a personal best in the 100
hurdles, and a season-best in the
triple jump. Both of those marks
earned her raceberryjam honor
roll recognition. She also won
the pole vault with a height of 8feet, 6-inches.
The track teams will have a
busy week this week as hosts to
two meets. On Monday, April
20, they were to host a five-team
meet and on Thursday, April 23,
they will invite H-W-W, Zimmerman, Spectrum, St. Johns
Prep and Dassel-Cokato to com-
