Early voting begins
Sept. 19, makes it
easier than ever to
make your voice
heard
From paying bills and shop-
ping online to keeping up with
friends on Facebook, there is no
doubt that technology and con-
venience play a huge role in our
lives.
Under the new law, voters do
not have to give an excuse to
vote prior to the election. The
law also opens the polls 46 days
before an election. In this case,
voting for the Nov. 4 election
begins Friday, Sept. 19.
There are two different op-
tions to vote early: voting by
mail and voting in person.
To vote by mail, citi-
zens can go to
www.mnvotes.org and request a
ballot. The ballot will be mailed
to the voter. Instructions on how
to fill out and return the ballot
are included with the ballot.
Once the ballot is mailed in, vot-
ers can track the progress of
their ballot online or by contact-
ing their county auditor.
People also have the option
to vote in person at county court-
houses. Some cities also have
early voting available. Leech
Lake, White Earth and Red Lake
reservations also have satellite
early voting locations. Visit
www.mnvotes.org for a list of
cities that provide early voting.
Voting is available during busi-
ness hours Monday through Fri-
day and offices will be open
Nov. 1, the last Saturday before
the election.
During presidential elections,
Minnesota boasts one of the
highest voter turnouts in the na-
tion. That number drops in non-
presidential years, like 2014.
Hopefully, allowing people to
vote by mail or early in person
will increase the number of peo-
ple voting this year and help us
send the message to others that
Minnesotans make voting a pri-
ority because we care about
democracy.
Again visit
www.mnvotes.org for more in-
formation about how you can
vote early beginning Sept. 19
and make your voice heard
about the future of our state and
nation.

The strategic planning re-
treat was led by Stu Wilson and
Melissa Brechon from Library
Strategies Consulting Group.
About 40 people attended the
retreat which was held at The V.
Melissa talked about the
constraints facing libraries, es-
pecially those facing the Maple
Lake Library and also the
trends in library services as li-
braries evolve to meet the needs
of the users.
Margaret Jenniges gave a
snapshot of the library - statis-
tics on cardholders, books and
movies, programs available for
adults and children, number of
volunteers and what they do
(most of the statistics were
taken from the article written
for the community guide). The
library has a $32,000 operating
budget, City provides funds
sufficient to cover 15% of the
operating budget, fundraiser
covers 60-70%, remaining 15-
25% comes from fundraising
activities, grants and donations.

Many ROAD CLOSED
signs have been moved and the
orange cones are becoming
fewer and fewer throughout the
area, and Maple Lake is no ex-
ception.
City Engineer Phil Gravel
provided an update on several
construction projects in the lat-
est version of the city newslet-
ter.
Most notably, Division
Street, Linden Avenue and Park
Avenue are completely open to
through traffic, following an in-
tensive project that included re-
placing a water main, sewer and
water services, sanitary sewer
manholes and storm sewer. Cen-
terPoint replaced much of its in-
frastructure in the area at the
same time. Street work included
replacing some sidewalk, the
concrete curb, the gravel base
and the bituminous paving, with
additional granular material and
geotextile fabric added to the
street base in many areas.
Gravel reported that exces-
sive rains early in the season
slowed construction.
The rain created higher-
than-anticipated groundwater
levels and caused the general
contractor to adjust their sched-
ule and plan of work, Gravel
said.
While construction has halted
for this construction season, the
project is not completed, with a
final layer of bituminous paving
to be placed on Park and Linden
avenues in 2015.
By not completing the final
paving until 2015, the long-term
integrity of the street can be bet-
ter assured as there will be an
opportunity to repair any irregu-
larities in the bituminous base
that may come up after the
streets go through a freeze/thaw
cycle, Gravel said.
Topsoil and seeding work
will be completed in September,
as the Maple Lake City Council
recently awarded a contract with
a landscaping contractor to com-
plete that work.
In addition to that construc-
tion project, other miscellaneous
utility and street improvements
are being completed in advance
of a Wright County paving proj-
ect on parts of Division Street
and Oak Avenue in 2015.
They include:
Replacement of an old
water main in the intersection of
Elm Avenue is scheduled to be
completed in September. Tem-
porary road closures and water
system interruptions will take
place to complete this work. Af-
fected property owners will re-
ceive notices prior to water
system interruptions.
Old water main has been re-
placed in the intersection of
Maple Avenue and Division
Street near City Hall, along with
curb and sidewalk replacement
to bring pedestrian ramps at
crosswalks into compliance with
the Americans with Disabilities
Act.
Division Street and Oak Av-
enue curb and sidewalk repairs
will be completed in September
and October. Only the most
damaged curb and sidewalks are
being repaired at this time, due
to budgetary constraints. Addi-
tional sidewalk repairs on Divi-
sion and Oak are anticipated, as
the city budget allows.
The contractor who com-
pleted the sanitary sewer lining
project in 2013 is completing
post-construction televising in-
spection of the lined sewers to
verify completion of the work.
Residents may see construction
equipment in those areas, but in-
spection work should not cause
interruption of service for resi-
dents.

Homecoming Court selected and ready for this year's activities
County approves
criminal tracking
analysis project
by John Holler
Correspondent
Criminals typically have a
home base of operation, but, by
the nature of their criminal his-
tory, they tend to be on the move
and striking in areas that are ad-
jacent but often cross county
lines. At the Sept. 9 meeting of
the Wright County Board, the
commissioners approved a joint
powers agreement with Sher-
burne County to share informa-
tion of suspects in crimes that
may be of interest to both.
The Regional Criminal Track-
ing Analysis Project was initiated
in Sherburne County and, by
state mandate, requires a joint-
powers agreement for other
counties to share data. At no cost
to the county, the JPA lays out
how counties share law enforce-
ment data. For example, if there
is a robbery caught on video sur-
veillance cameras, those images
are uploaded to the website
where other law enforcement
agencies can view them and per-
haps notice a suspect that has
committed similar crimes in their
county.
Lt. Sean Deringer of the
Wright County Sheriffs Office
said the purpose of the JPA is to
allow counties to take advantage
of technological advancements as
an asset in trying to solve crimes
and track down perpetrators who
may be committing crimes in
neighboring counties without law
enforcement being aware that he
or she is striking in both.
Sherburne County has devel-
oped a website that has been ap-
proved by the BCA (Bureau of
Criminal Apprehension), De-
ringer said. Since some of the
data could be construed as private
data, the BCA is requiring that
agencies using this tool have a
joint-powers agreement with the
county entrusted with running it.
The project would allow law
enforcement agencies to immedi-
ately access data collected by
other agencies to use as a tool in
combatting crime, while at the
same time working cooperatively
instead of as separate investiga-
tive entities.
It is just one information
sharing tool for us, Wright
County Sheriff Joe Hagerty said.
It helps us share video or sus-
pect information to neighboring
counties because people who
commit crimes here may well be
doing the same in other counties.
Criminals, by their nature, tend to
be mobile and this is a way for us
to work together in trying to as-
sess whether crimes being com-
mitted here may be the same
person or persons committing
crimes elsewhere.
The board unanimously ap-
proved entering into the joint-
powers agreement, which will
take effect when the document is
presented to and signed off by the
BCA.
In other business, the board:
By a 3-2 vote, denied a re-
quest to create standardized sub-
mission materials for
commissioner appointments of
citizen members of county com-
mittees and advisory boards. The
standard process has been for a
county commissioner to appoint
citizen members to such boards,
but Board Chair Christine Husom
stated that there should be a
wider net to attract candidates for
those positions.

Its taken him a while, but Mike Muller finally bagged two geese
last week when he and his goose hunting buddies tallied six. He
commented up to that time he hadnt fired his shotgun, although hed
been hunting a number of times. It seemed the geese didnt swing
his way. Brad Hennen and Bart Lauer were successful bear hunters,
although hunting hundreds of miles apart. Hennen in the Lake Ver-
million area with his brother, Adam, where he harvested a boar that
weighed roughly 170 pounds. He was using a muzzle loader, he had
a malfunction and needed to replace the cap, but all ended well. He
said the bear wasnt as fat as they normally are or it would have
weighed more. I figured it might be a genetic improvement like what
has happened in the hog industry to make them more lean. If you
believe that you probably believe in Santa Claus, too! Lauer was
hunting near Hill City and his bear, also a boar, dressed out at 160
lbs. He said it was the seventh bear he saw in the three days he
hunted and the only one that came in to the bait. The only other ac-
tivity he noticed, besides song birds, was one ruffed grouse and a
deer. Hennen commented he and Adam saw one covey of ruffed
grouse, quite small, they felt, for this time of the year. . . The
only first-hand reports from opening weekend grouse hunters is from
Mike Lauer who was hunting with his sons, Jordan and Dominic, in
the Crow Wing lakes area. Mike said they flushed and harvested a
young grouse about 100 yards into the trail. He figured they flushed
four other birds, but didnt get any shooting because of the heavy
cover. He was disappointed with the few flushes they had consider-
ing the spring drumming counts were up. They met two other
hunters with a dog and they werent having any success either. It
sounds like it will be one of those years when it will take a lot of
walking which isnt all bad, but doesnt do much for my enthusiasm
for the sport. I hope to get out later this week, but with Mikes report,
it will be in a different area in hopes of finding that elusive covey.

The Messenger office was pretty quiet Monday morning without
Editor Gabe Licht there to greet us. As Messenger readers know, he
has taken a new similar position with the Delano newspaper. I en-
joyed knowing and working with him during the two years he was
with the Messenger, and as the saying goes it wont be the same
around here without him. He had a nose for news and took a gen-
uine interest in Maple Lake and the area the newspaper serves. One
of his traits that impressed me was that I didnt hear him say any-
thing negative about anyone during those two years. He was fun to
be around and he has an upbeat attitude which will serve him well
in the newspaper industry. I would say Maple Lakes loss will be
Delanos gain and we wish him well.

We had a white, frosty coating on our garage roof Saturday morn-
ing, but there didnt seem to be any frost on the grass or the petunias
or the one tomato plant next to the garage. My coffee buddies figure
well be safe until the next full moon which will be October 9th. If
that theory holds true, it should make the farmers happy as they will
need time for the soybeans and corn to mature. The recent rains
have given the mushrooms in our backyard a boost. Some of them
seem to be the puff ball variety while Id give some others the more
familiar toadstool name. Taking care of the lawn is cutting into my
fishing time, but Ive been waiting for a warm, quiet day which
could happen this week. One thing Ive noticed this summer, which
wife Janis is pleased with, is the lack of those pesty ill-smelling
Japanese beetles which look similar to lady bugs. I havent seen any
and believe me I dont miss them a bit! Vanna is getting a few points
on pheasant roosters in our walks in Ney Park which always makes
the walks more entertaining. I keep hoping its not a skunk and so
far Ive lucked out.

Ive been giving some thought to giving fall turkey hunting a try.
Its in October and the limit is one bird, either sex, for the season.
Apparently one of the ways is to scatter the flock and then call one
within shooting range to where youre concealed. It sounds simple
enough with the only stickler finding a flock to scatter. We used to
do that with ducks sitting in a slough before shooting time and they
would come back in singles and doubles!

Cards of Thanks
Alcohol, Testosterone and
Romance
You may be wondering what
these three things have to do
with the Court. If you are of a
certain vintage, you recall the
frequent bar fights on 1960s
classic TV programs, such as
Bonanza and Gunsmoke. A
cocktail of alcohol, testos-
terone, and romance frequently
still results in bar fights. Just
search on Google why men
fight in bars, and you will find
some interesting articles. One
states the obvious, that men fight
over women, money, alcohol,
differing opinions, sports
matches and teams, and pool
games. (www.health24.com).
The personality trait of hyper-
masculinity plays an important
role: exaggerated male behavior
emphasizing virility, and physi-
cal and sexual aggression.
Youve seen them: the tough
guy.
Often the combatants find
themselves charged with disor-
derly conduct or assault, and oc-
casionally someone goes to the
hospital or morgue, and some-
one is charged with felony as-
sault or murder. Tragically, the
latter (serious injury or death)
has happened more than once in
this state in the past few years.
Sometimes I hear criminal de-
fense attorneys argue, it was a
bar fight and just one punch, as
if that makes it a boys-will-be-
boys situation and less serious.
Our misdemeanor calendars
have many young men (18-35)
charged with disorderly conduct
or simple assault occurring at a
bar between midnight and 2:00
a.m. In most cases alcohol was
consumed to intoxication, and in
many cases there were rude
comments or threats involving
one or both of the combatants
significant other. Pretty soon the
cocktail results in punches
being thrown.
A few years ago, a middle-
aged husband and father was in
my courtroom for sentencing for
an assault. He had no criminal
history, a good job, and an intact
family. He had been to a bar with
friends, words were exchanged
among a number of males con-
suming copious amounts of alco-
hol, and they literally took it out
to the parking lot. This otherwise
law-abiding man used a weapon,
causing serious injury to the vic-
tim and coming within a few
centimeters of a major artery,
which would have resulted in the
victims death. I dont recall any
romantic element in the mix,
such as making rude comments
about someones girlfriend, but
alcohol and testosterone were
enough.
Whats my point? People are
well-served not to allow them-
selves to be in the middle of such
situations. Retreating or calling
a bouncer or 9-1-1 may be the
smart approach. But, of course,
excessive alcohol and drugs im-
pede ones judgment, and people
do stupid things they wouldnt
otherwise do, such as taking on
the abusive drunk. The conse-
quences can be anything from a
mere annoyance to an extreme
tragedy. The combatants conse-
quences may be an arrest, signif-
icant bail, large attorneys fees, a
fine, and jail time or prison. The
victims injuries may be signifi-
cant and result in a lawsuit
against the combatant. In conclu-
sion, as the sergeant on Hill
Street Blues told the patrol of-
ficers, Lets be careful out
there.

Letters
To the Editor:
If you have been to the local
liquor store lately, the Munici-
pal, CITY owned "Maple Lake
Wine and Spirits," you may
have noticed the work of the
liberal, anti gun, City Council.
You are greeted by a sign
that reads, "THE CITY RE-
QUESTS THAT NO GUNS
BE BROUGHT INTO THE
STORE." Signs that ban guns
from PRIVATE establishments
are worded differently, and
seemingly the anti freedom to
legally carry Council knew
this, when, apparently with the
costly help of their Attorney,
came up with this wording.
Please know, that if you are
a legal carry permit holder that
this sign is meaningless, you
have the right to carry in any
city building, as long as it is not
connected to a courthouse. The
anti gun council CANNOT by
State Statute ban guns in city
buildings.
The vote on this sloppy bit
of an attempt to fool you was
voted on UNANIMOUSLY, 5-
0 by your council, even one
who claims to be a Tea Party
Patriot does not want you to
exercise the Constitutional
right you trained and were li-
censed for. Ask some of the
Council what their legal au-
thority was to get involved in
this nonsense trickery. Also ask
the candidates for election this
fall how they feel about the
Constitution and YOUR rights.
I hope they are better than the
power hungry crew you have
now.

Two license plates
Question: My front license
plate fell off recently, am I re-
quired to display one? Can I dis-
play it up in the front
windshield? Why do we need
two license plates anyway?
Answer: This is what Min-
nesota State Statute (M.S.S.)
169.79 says about license
plates:
No person shall operate,
drive, or park a motor vehicle
on any highway unless the vehi-
cle is registered in accordance
with the laws of this state and
has the number plates or permit
confirming that valid registra-
tion or operating authority has
been obtained
There are some vehicles that
are allowed to display only one
license plate: motorcycles; a
dealers vehicle or vehicle in-
transit; a collector's vehicle with
a pioneer, classic car, collector,
or street rod license; a vehicle
that is of model year 1972 or
earlier (not registered as a col-
lector vehicle), and is used for
general transportation purposes.
License plates cannot be dis-
played in the front windshield or
the rear window, they must be
displayed on the front and rear
of the vehicle. All plates must
be securely fastened so as to
prevent them from swinging,
displayed horizontally with the
identifying numbers and letters
facing outward from the vehi-
cle, and mounted in the upright
position. The person driving the
motor vehicle shall keep the
plate legible and unobstructed
and free from grease, dust, or
other blurring material (dirt,
mud, snow, etc.) so that the let-
tering is plainly visible at all
times. It is unlawful to cover
any assigned letters and num-
bers or the name of the state of
origin of a license plate with any
material whatever, including
any clear or colorless material
that affects the plate's visibility
or reflectivity. This also in-
cludes obstructing license plate
brackets that block the state of
issuance, and tabs.
License plates issued to vehi-
cles must display the month of
expiration in the lower left cor-
ner of each plate and the year of
expiration in the lower right cor-
ner of each plate.
Why do we have two license
plates? First and foremost, it is
the law in Minnesota M.S.S.
169.79. From a law enforcement
perspective it is safer to have
two plates. For instance
- If an officer needs to run
vehicle information they can get
the plate information from the
front or rear of the vehicle.
- It makes a suspect vehicle
easier to identify if it is encoun-
tered from the front or the rear.
- If a suspect vehicle is
backed into a parking spot it is
more easily identified.
- Identifying a suspect in a
crime (from surveillance im-
ages) is easier with front and
back plates.

Sept. 12 Wright County
Attorneys report
After a motion by Commis-
sioner Mark Daleiden to ap-
prove requiring applicants to
submit resumes and cover letters
and posting open
committing/advisory board ap-
pointments on the countys web-
site, it failed to receive a second.
At that point, Husom passed the
gavel to Vice Chair Mike Potter
and seconded the motion. It
failed to pass by a 3-2 vote,
keeping the current policy in
force.
Discussed the minutes from
the Aug. 27 committee of the
whole meeting. At the meeting,
the board heard a web seminar
from Zimride, a part of Enter-
prise Rental Car. The program
provides people the opportunity
to seek or offer rides for others
using on-line services via Face-
book. Concerns were raised
about potential county liability
issues. The committee decided
to lay the item over to seek more
information and explore more
options moving forward.
Approved revisions to the
personnel policy pertaining to
the Family Medical League Act.
The language changes are ex-
pected to take effect Jan. 1,
2015, for non-union employees
and for the remainder of the em-
ployees after union ratification.
Received an update on the
Aurora Solar Panel project being
proposed in Wright County. The
project has received preliminary
approval from the Public Utili-
ties Commission and is currently
in the public comment process
for environmental assessment.
Set a transportation com-
mittee of the whole meeting for
11 a.m. following the Sept. 30
board meeting.
Approved a revised budget
committee of the whole sched-
uled for Sept. 10 and 15, allot-
ting more time for department
heads to review their budget re-
quests and discuss changes
theyre seeking in their depart-
ment budgets. The final draft
budget and levy will be pre-
sented at the Sept. 23 board
meeting.

Maple Lakes Irish Bless-

Market is changing the pur-
pose and format of the Vintage
Market segment of their busi-
ness, effective October 1,
2014. The current Market
space; a separate building lo-
cated just behind the coffee-
house; will be used to
accommodate larger groups in-
terested in meeting for break-
fasts or luncheons, dinners,
meetings, classes or other
events. The coffeehouse can
currently accommodate groups
up to 16 people; the new space
will enable it to serve groups
of up to 40.
Irish Blessings has also re-
cently been granted an alcohol

state of Minnesota. The permit
enables Irish Blessings to offer

special occasions such as
bridal showers or anniversary
dinners with patrons bringing
their own beer or wine to en-
hance their event.
In addition, the Vintage
Market space will be made
available to artisans, crafts-
people, organizations and
clubs to rent by the day, week-

Maple Lake Wine & Spirits
is having a wine pull from now
until the Maple Lake Library's
fundraiser, which is Saturday,
October 4th. Maple Lake Wine
& Spirits has been kind enough
to offer a 10% discount on any
wine purchased there for the
fundraiser. They also will store
the wine there until the
fundraiser. The way the wine
pull will work at the fundraiser
is a cork is purchased for $10
and then you match up your
cork with a bottle of wine. It's
a win-win - everyone gets
something for their $10, and for
the library it's clear profit.
Pictured is Carol Bestland
("Grandma"), who is the man-
ager of the liquor store and
Lorie Hegle, the chairperson of
the wine pull.
Wine Pull to help Maple Lake Library Fundraiser
September is national Li-
brary Card Sign-up Month.
Across the country, libraries are
reminding their communities
about the benefits of owning
and using a library card.
In Central Minnesota, resi-
dents need only provide a valid
Minnesota ID with current ad-
dress (or photo ID with second-
ary current address
documentation) to receive their
library card. The card provides
access to all items owned by
Great River Regional Library at
its 32 locations, and access via
interlibrary loan to items on li-
brary shelves across Minnesota
and even out-of-state. Approxi-
mately 960,000 items are avail-
able within Great River
Regional Library via the online
catalog:
Books, from board books
to large print
Music CDs, including clas-
sic rock, soundtracks, and sen-
timental favorites
DVDs, with blockbusters,
how-to, and foreign films
Magazines
Audiobooks on CD
A growing digital library of
downloadable books and audio-
books
Library computers, printers
and copiers
Internet access through
each branch librarys wireless
connection
Studies show that children
who are read to in the home and
who use the library perform
better in school and are more
likely to continue to use the li-
brary as a source of lifetime
learning. They are more likely
to grow up as readers, and read-
ers are more likely to be pro-
ductive members of our society.
In other words, libraries are
good for the community.
The librarys preschool pro-
grams help develop reading
readiness and are a fun way for
kids and families to make con-
nections. Author presentations
and book clubs provide oppor-
tunities for community engage-
ment that keeps older
Minnesotans young at heart.
And teens and adults can share
their enthusiasms in arts and
crafts classes, as well as movie
nights, anime clubs, and other
fun programming. The library is
a safe place and a welcoming
place for the community.
Libraries are tax supported,
so residents are able to enjoy li-
brary resources without addi-
tional charge. The process to
get a card takes only ten min-
utes to complete. Get your li-
brary card today to enjoy all of
the benefits a library card pro-
vides.
For information about li-
brary programs and activities,
visit the library website at
griver.org.
Invited members of the
community to discuss the fu-
ture of the library. The
Friends of the Maple Lake Li-
brary would like the library to
meet additional needs of the
community. To do that the li-
brary needs the input and sup-
port from the community.
There was very active com-
munity participation in dis-
cussing the following areas:
- Who is not being ade-
quately served - examples in-
clude teens, those who use
ebooks, those needing differ-
ent hours
- What role should the li-
brary play in the Maple Lake
Community
- What should the library be
or look like in 5-10 years
- What would be the impact
on the community
- What resources does the
library need to meet future
goals
Some suggestions included
partnering with the city and
other organizations, having a
community center that in-
cludes a library, having more
programs for adults, being an
outreach for early literacy (just
a few of the suggestions).
There will be a continuation
of the first meeting on Mon-
day, September 22, at 6:30 at
the McHugh building. At that
meeting everyone will be
working on developing a vi-
sion, mission, goals and strate-
gies for a strategic plan. The
ideas from the first meeting
will be refined, goals and ob-
stacles discussed and a prelim-
inary plan developed. Anyone
interested is invited to attend.

margaretjenniges@yahoo.com
or call 963-3566 if you plan to
attend.

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!

The pass-
ing of our
dear hus-
band, de-
voted father,
and loyal
friend Omar
"Ozzie" Nel-
son. The
Lord chose
to take him home on Sunday
morning, September 14, 2014.
Ozzie was an extremely hard-
working man with strong beliefs
of right and wrong. He will be
missed always and loved sin-
cerely. He loved visiting with
people and made friends every-
where he went. He was a great
conversationalist, an avid sports
fan who played, coached, and
cheered his grandchildren on in
their many endeavors. The kids
loved breakfast club with
grandpa and time spent at the
cabin on French Lake near
Maple Lake, MN.
He was born to Sophus and
Ruby in Pine City, MN July 15,
1938. He was raised in Braham,
then Spring Lake Park, finishing
high school in Columbia
Heights as captain of the school
football team. He was proud of
his Columbia Heights Alma
Mater and lifelong friends from
the Heights near and far.
Ozzie cherished his many
fishing trips with his buddies,
his pals on the Silver Fox Golf
League, and his many travels to
Palm Springs; hanging out with
his great Canadian friends and
many other acquaintances. He
never passed up a chance to
meet new friends and share a
good cup of coffee.
Everyone knew that Ozzie
would help everyone, always
having the right tool for the job
even if it was just good advice.
Preceded in death by his par-
ents; brothers, Wendell, Irwin,
Vernan; sisters, Blanche, Sylvia.
Left to cherish his memories
are his loving wife, Sandy;

bert, Sarah (Layne) Kurr; sons,

School
Band rule changes on hold
Read & Redeem winners
School News
Visi t us online! www.maplelakemessenger.com
by Gabe Licht
A meeting regarding Maple
Lakes marching rule clarified
the rule and what actions would
need to be taken to change it.
Band Director Nathan
Mitchell, six members of the
Maple Lake Band Boosters,
High School Principal Dave
Hansen and School Board Chair
Arnie Michalicek discussed the
rule on Sept. 8.
Mitchell said the rule was un-
derstood to mean that high
school students must participate
in summer marching band in
order to participate in the fol-
lowing fall concert band.
Michalicek said the rule re-
quires students in fall concert
band to be in marching band the
following summer. If they are
not, they cannot be in fall con-
cert band. He also clarified that
the rule is school policy rather
than a band rule that could be
changed without school board
approval.
If the rule is to be changed,
the activities committee would
need to discuss it first and make
a recommendation to the school
board.

tradition goes, parents of the 11th-

week off with a friendly game of
Powder Puff Football and He-Man
Volleyball. This is a parent-spon-
sored event and is organized by
IRISH P.A.T.H.S.
This year, the events will take
place on Sunday, Sept. 21. The
Homecoming celebration starts off
at 2:30 p.m. with a game of Pow-
der Puff Football, where the senior
girls take on the junior girls at
Irish Stadium.
Immediately following the
football game, all junior and sen-
ior students (even if they don't
play) and their immediate families
are invited to a potluck dinner in
the high school cafeteria around
4:30 p.m. Each junior and senior
family is asked to bring a hot dish,
salad or dessert to share. These
items need to be dropped off either
before the Powder Puff game or by
4 p.m. in the high school cafeteria.
Beverages, utensils, plates and
napkins will be provided.
At 6 p.m., the senior and junior
boys will be hitting the gym floor
for a competitive but friendly and
fun game of He-Man Volleyball.
It is very important that all stu-
dents participating in this years
event drop off the signed permis-
sion slip in the office.
Both events are a must see
for all ages, so call the grandpar-
ents and relatives, bring neighbors
and friends to see the students kick
off Homecoming 2014. Admission
to both events is $3 or $2 with a
food shelf donation. Also this year
bottled water will be on sale for all
spectators. The money collected
pays for the potluck supplies and
any other miscellaneous expenses.
Any remaining money will go to
the Irish PATHS to use as they see
fit to help the students of MLHS
and the food shelf donations will
go to Back Pack Buddies.
Parents are asked to help in the
following areas:
Set up/clean up the cafeteria
Cleaning up the gymnasium

Connecting Links pro-
gram seeks mentors for
kids
Would you be interested in
making a difference in a students
life? Or, do you know of students

Connecting Links is a program
which provides a mentoring op-
portunity between an adult volun-
teer and identified student in need.
The relationship is intended to
nurture the academic, social and/or
emotional aspects of these stu-

learn.
Mentors are encouraged to
meet weekly with their student.
These meetings can be at school or
something planned outside of
school with parent permission. Ac-
tivities can range from playing
games, making projects, and
working on assignments, to going
somewhere fun or learning some-
thing new.
There is training for anyone in-
terested in becoming involved in
the program on Oct. 23rd at 6:30
p.m. in the elementary media cen-
ter.

Homecoming Activities
Combining two legacy or-
ganizations has not only revital-
ized the future of camp, but
increased the amount of life-
changing experiences available
for campers with disabilities this
summer. Camp Courage and
Camp Friendship, along with
three other Minnesota camps,
are now one entity under the
name True Friends. In just three
months, True Friends welcomed
1,841 campers, 301 volunteers
and 253 seasonal staff members.
Campers took part in classic
camp activities like boating,
tubing, swimming and recre-
ation activities modified to meet
a wide range of ability levels.
True Friends programming like
the True Strides horse program,
enVISION career sessions and
Team Quest ropes and climbing
courses deliver the dynamic ex-
periences campers of all abili-
ties are looking for.
Ive never been surrounded
by so many amazing people.
This summer taught me so
much and has given me memo-
ries that I will remember for-
ever, said Maria Schmidt, the
nature leader at Camp Friend-
ship.
Sr. Director of Camping
Chet Tschetter said camper
numbers were up for the organ-
ization. It's been a great sum-
mer, in fact, we served about
100 more than last year,
Tschetter said. Nice weather
and an exceptional summer
crew made our first summer as
True Friends really outstand-
ing.
These summer campers are
only a portion of the nearly
4,000 children and adults with
disabilities served each year by
the organization. More than 200
sessions are offered, not only
during summer camp, but win-
ter camp, respite, travel, team
building, horse riding and other
programs as well.
As the seasons change, so do
the opportunities to experience
camp year round with Fall Fam-
ily Camp at Camp Courage,
respite weekends at Camp
Friendship and Camp Eden
Wood and winter camp at Camp
Friendship and Camp Courage.
True Friends is a nonprofit,
privately-funded agency that en-
riches the lives of nearly 4,000
people with developmental or
physical disabilities and special
needs annually. Camp locations
include Camp Courage near
Maple Lake, Camp Friendship
in Annandale, Camp Eden
Wood in Eden Prairie, Camp
New Hope near McGregor and
Camp Courage North near Lake
George. For more information

The Maple Lake Irish faced
off against their long-time con-
ference rival, the Howard Lake-
Waverly-Winsted Lakers(AA).
The game was much anticipated
between the two teams, as the
Lakers came into the game 2-0,
with momentum on their side
and the Irish looking to bounce
back after a close defeat with
Pierz the previous week. Going
into the game both teams ex-
pected a close and tight game,
but that was not the case, as
Maple Lake demolished the vis-
iting Lakers 51-6.
Howard Lakes first two
games had taken place against
struggling programs in the
Spectrum Sting (Elk River) and
the Kimball Cubs. The Lakers
beat both teams by over 30, this
didnt faze the Irish. Maple
Lakes week of practice was
very physical and they were de-
termined to beat the Lakers, in
what could be their final meet-
ing of the season. Games
against Howard Lake are very
important to our team, espe-
cially to the seniors, because we
have been beating them for
many seasons and they want to
keep it up and leave the program
with a victory against them
Head Coach Tim Knudsen ac-
knowledged the importance of
the long time rivalry between
the two teams.
The Irish won the coin toss
and received the opening kick-
off. With the ball at midfield,
Maple Lake attempted to strike
first and break down the Lakers
confidence with a deep ball
downfield. The pass fell incom-
plete, intended for Ryan Kali-
nowski. The next play was a
major success, with a 50-yard
touchdown from senior Dustin
Strub. We knew going into the
game if we scored on our first
two drives and stopped them at
least once we would beat them,
junior linebacker Lucas Fobbe
concluded after the game. His
prediction was correct. On their
next drive, the Irish scored
again with another sweep from
Strub. Maple Lakes next defen-
sive stand ended when Dominic
Kaley stripped the ball, causing
a fumble. Recovering the ball
gave the Irish offense great field
position. However, miscommu-
nication led to an interception
and put the Lakers on their own
10.
Maple Lakes defense didnt
allow Howard Lakes offense to
move and caused them to punt.
Maple Lakes next offensive
drive was set back as false starts
and fumbles forced the Irish to
punt. Howard Lakes returner
couldnt handle the punt and
fumbled. Recovering the ball on
Howard Lakes 30, the Irish
scored after strong and punish-
ing runs from Maple Lakes run-
ners, making the score 22-0
with one minute remaining in
the first quarter.
The Lakers finally answered
back with a 14 play, 70-yard
drive, but they wouldnt convert
on the two-point conversion,
making the score 22-6, at half.
The Irish offense again came
back scoring, as the offensive
line, Strub and Cal Redemske,
led a 70-yard drive down the
field to further assert the Irish
onslaught, making the score 29-
6. A cycle developed, Howard
Lake would get the ball, be
stopped by the Irish defense,
punt, Maple Lake's offense
would then drive the ball 50
plus yards for a score and then
repeat several different times.
The Irish sent out their JV with
four minutes left and with the
score 44-6. The second string
defense, led by Luke Mooney,
stopped the Lakers at the Irish
20. Nate Maas led the Irish of-
fense against the Laker defense
with 30 seconds left, Maas took
it himself for a 60-yard touch-
down run to put the final nail in
the Laker coffin.
"It was a great win and it
means a lot to beat them
(HLWW). We have been beat-
ing them a long time and wanted
to keep the tradition going
against our rival" senior Hunter
Hicks reported after the 51-6
victory over the HLWW Lakers.
Maple Lake's next game is at
Eden Valley-Watkins on Sep-
tember 19 at 7 p.m. The Eagles,
who are 2-1, will be a good test
for the surging Irish next Friday.

Volleyball team wins against

A victory over Dassel-
Cokato on Tuesday, September
9, led the Maple Lake Irish vol-
leyball team to maintain a
hardly scratched record of eight
wins and one loss. They started
out in the first game with a
struggle and a close loss of 20-
25. Things picked up in the sec-
ond game when better
communication helped them
take a 25-12 win. Working to-
gether, the team pulled together
for another win of 25-19 in the
third game. They finished their
match with a 25-20 win in the
fourth game.

Cross country team
places 2nd at Delano
by Mollie Graham
Sports Writer
Sun overhead with a slight
breeze, the Maple Lake Irish
cross country team made their
way to Lake Rebecca State Park
for the Delano Invitational. With
only four teams, including the
Irish, the small meet still showed
strong competition.
Racing roughly three miles,
the varsity boys got their
warmups in and were ready to
get to the course. Andrew Schon-
nesen sprinted out with the front
of the pack and continued to stay
strong throughout the race.
Schonnesen completed the race
first for the Irish in 18:01 and
placed fourth overall receiving a
medal. "I enjoy running hills be-
cause I'm able to keep my pace
while my opponents slow down.
We do lots of training on hills
which makes the races easier,"
said Schonnesen. Also breezing
through the course, Jackson
Willard finished seventh (18:22),
and received a medal as well.
Sticking together and pushing
each other throughout the course,
Devin Derringer and Scott Jor-
dan placed ninth and 10th. Der-
ringer finished in 18:52, and
Jordan finished in 18:56. Placing
15th in 19:28, Ross Hickey was
the fifth runner for the Irish.
Cullen Gallagher ran hard
throughout the race and crossed
the finish line with a time of
19:58 and placed 20th. Finishing
seventh for the Irish, Tanner
Vasser ran his race in 20:22 and
placed 22nd. With two strong
teams going head-to-head, the
Irish took second overall with a
team score of 45.
Anxiously awaiting their race,
the girls varsity team showed
confidence on the starting line.
Powering through the hilly paths
within the park, Sommer Carlson
showed strength as she crossed
the finish line first (16:45), win-
ning the girls varsity race. "I felt
great during my race and it was
exciting to win the girls varsity
race," said Carlson. On her heels,
one second behind, Halle Geyen
also took on the course showing
no pain, and placed second
(16:46), for both the Irish and the
race itself. Coming in third and
fourth for the Irish, Kayla Hois-
tad and Jordan Sifferle placed
eighth (18:31) and ninth (18:48).
Margaret Graham pushed
through the course in 19:15, and
placed 12th. Katelyn Kramer and
Olivia Wolff-Herda approached
the 100 meter hill with determi-
nation and pushed each other
until the end of the race. Kramer
placed 15th (19:32) and Wolff-
Herda placed 17th (19:53). Over-
all, the girls placed second just
behind Delano with a team score
of 30.
Highlights from the girls and
boys JV races included two sec-
ond-place finishes by Adam
Ruhland (19:53) and Grace Hey-
ing (19:22).
Matt Gendro, Luke Tollefson,
and Joe Stockman placed first,
second, and third in the boys jun-
ior high race. Peyton Tongen
placed second in the girls junior
high race.
"It was nice to go to a small
meet. Delano has a lot of num-
bers and was a tough team for
boys and girls. We ran better here
as a team than at Holdingford.
Sommer won the girls varsity
race. I can't remember the last
time we had someone win a var-
sity race," said Head Coach Ben
Youngs.
Coming off a great meet, the
Irish were back at it racing Mon-
day at the Pierz Stampede.

Wright County has a new
rapid emergency notification
service called CodeRED. The
new system will distribute emer-
gency messages via telephone to
targeted areas or the entire
county at a rate of 1,000 calls per
minute. CodeRED employs a
one-of-a-kind Internet mapping
capability for geographic target-
ing of calls, coupled with a high
speed telephone calling system
capable of delivering cus-
tomized emergency messages
directly to homes and busi-
nesses.
This service can be used in
case of fires, flooding, train de-
railment, chemical spills, nu-
clear incidents, evacuation,
downed power lines, lost indi-
viduals, natural disasters, abduc-
tions, water system problems,
bomb threats, disease outbreaks,
or other emergencies. Calls can
be geographically targeted for
local incidents. If widespread,
the entire county with 31,000
households can be called within
30 minutes.
Wright County residents are
welcome and encouraged to
enter their contact information
for home, business, and mobile
phones so they may be contacted
by the system in the event of an
emergency. Most landlines are
automatically part of the system
but mobile phones are not. It is
important for county residents
and business customers to regis-
ter, especially if they use un-
listed numbers, cell phones, or
VoIP (Voice Over Internet Pro-
tocol). Those who do not regis-
ter their address and phone
number may not be notified with
CodeRED in case of an emer-
gency.
Registration is confidential,
free, and easy. To register, go to
the Wright County website at
www.co.wright.mn.us and click
on the CodeRED Emergency
Notification link on the lower
left side of the page.
Funding for CodeRED is
provided by the Wright County
Sheriffs Office, the Public
Health Emergency Preparedness
program and the Nuclear Office.
Citizens may also sign up for
notifications from individual
county departments by clicking
on the Notify Me button near
the top of the Wright County
homepage. This past summer
many people received timely no-
tices when flooding caused road
closures. You can sign up for
alerts from the Sheriffs Office
and Emergency Management,
the Highway Department, Public
Health, and many other county
departments.

I took a vow . . .
To have and to hold from this day forward, for better, for
worse. I promised to be true in good times and in bad, in
sickness and in health. I will keep that promise til
death do us part.
Tats why I bought life insurance from Auto-Owners,
to secure your future, no matter what.
