4-H’ers

sparkle at county fair

by Katie Friedman Correspondent

A few facts regarding the 2015 Wright County Fair were incorrectly reported in last

week’s issue of The Messenger.

A more accurate summary fol-

lows, along with local results from 4-H competitions.

• A balanced mix of new at-

tractions and longtime favorites drew close to 63,000 attendees.

• Fair Board Secretary Den-

nis Beise was pleased with the turn-out (up 2,000 from last year), and declared the week’s

fine weather to be the highlight

of the event.

• “People were happy with

the new carnival,” he said. “And we heard a lot of praise for the bull riding. We will probably

have that back next year.”

• Shaniah Karels of Waverly

and Brianna Ye of Monticello were crowned this year’s Wright County Fairest of the Fair Am- bassadors, with Ye also carrying

the title of Miss Congeniality.

DNR announces fall duck and goose seasons

Minnesota’s regular water- fowl season will open a half- hour before sunrise on Saturday, Sept. 26, with similar bag limits and season dates that were in

place last year, according to the Department of Natural Re- sources. “While the season structure

is similar to recent years, we ad-

justed the duck season dates in the south duck zone based on hunter preferences,” said Steve Cordts, DNR waterfowl special-

ist.

The waterfowl seasons are based on a federal framework that applies to all states in the Mississippi Flyway.

Twice burned

by Vicki Grimmer Correspondent

When faulty electrical wires caused a fire at the Jurgen’s fam- ily home in Chatham Township last April, an opportunity for the Maple Lake Fire Department

was born. As times change, a chance to give firefighters, both novice and veteran, a legitimate learning ex- perience to practice and hone their craft is becoming more dif- ficult to find. With regulations

changing with respect to safety and pollution control, compli- cated by financial constraints, the house fire proved a gift to the M.L.F.D.

National Night Out

Established in 1984 as a way for

neighbor to meet neighbor and for

folks to meet their local fire and police departments, the Maple Lake Fire De- partment has embraced National Night Out as a way to connect with the Maple Lake community.

On Tuesday, August 4, members of the Maple Lake Fire Department broke their own record by handing out 400 ice cream sandwiches. “We break the city into four quad- rants,” said M.L.F.D. Chief Todd Borell. “Four teams drive up and down the streets in fire department vehicles with lights and sirens going. We hand out ice cream to anyone that comes out of the houses. The first year we handed out 200, then 300, this year we’re up to 400 ice cream sandwiches.”

County cautiously proceeding with trail plan

by John Holler Correspondent

For the last several years, state officials have sought to connect long stretches of the state with bike trails. At times, these trails have been contro- versial when they run through private property, and landown- ers have issues with the amount of bike traffic that comes with them, At the Aug. 4 meeting of the Wright County Board of Com- missioners, Parks Administrator Marc Mattice presented the sta- tus of the master planning phase of an aggressive bike plan along the Crow River that could im- pact Wright County if one of the proposed trail lines is approved. “The Crow River Regional Trail is in the Three Rivers Park District’s Trail and Bikeways Plan,” Mattice said. “It’s also in Wright County’s plan that was adopted. Rather than going our separate ways and having trails right next to each other, we’ve been talking. Three Rivers Parks Department is going to take the lead on the master plan- ning portion of it.” The current holdup on the master planning is whether the City of Greenfield is willing to allow the trail through its juris- diction. If designated as a re- gional trail through Greater Minnesota legacy funds can be accessed to help fund the proj- ect. Mattice sought county input because the plans are still pre- liminary and no funding sources have yet been estab- lished. Commissioner Pat Sawatzke said that historically bike trails that cross private property have been the source of controversy and, before Wright County agrees to anything that poten- tially would cross through the county, it should be clear that

landowners are approving of the project, saying that similar projects have resulted in “wars” with local landowners. “You talk about getting peo- ple whipped up, some people – and I don’t blame them – in cer-

tain scenarios, trails can be in- trusive on their private property,” Sawatzke said. “I think we need to be cautious that this at some point could be

a problematic program.” To get the trail approved on the Wright County side of the Crow River, it would require the approval of property owners along the proposed trail or go through condemnation, which nobody wants. Mattice told the board that, if it was to vote down the process, it would never come back before the board again. The board also discussed the need to get approval for a main- tenance plan because, while grant dollars can help construct

bike paths, if there is no funding

to maintain the trails, they can

quickly fall into disrepair and

become hazardous to riders and

a headache for local govern-

ments where the trails run.

“There’s a peril out there that

is going to exist on these trails

that hasn’t come home to roost yet – people are going to have to start maintaining these

things,” Sawatzke said. “We’re building an infrastructure that has no value 20 years from now

if we don’t maintain it.”

The board approved having the planning process continued, but made it clear that it isn’t committing to partnering in with the program until final de- sign plans have been completed

and they receive board approval and public input.

Vanna and I saw a doe and two fawns with their spots Friday about 1 p.m. as they were lunching in the County Road 11 road ditch. On Saturday we spotted one larger fawn in the same road

ditch, but didn’t see its mother. I’m guessing the deer flies, other flys, ticks and mosquitoes are forcing the deer out of their brushy habitat. So far I haven’t needed to use my bug hat in the park, but

I ran into

Jim Wackler, Howard Lake, at the Laker game Sunday evening who is a died-in-the-wool angler, whether it’s panfish, bass, or northerns. He commented about good sunfish fishing earlier, but lately has been having a problem even finding a bass or sunfish large enough to keep. Also at the game was Ray Moson (?), another good baseball fan and friend of Brian Hedman, who enjoys an- gling, especially for sunfish. He showed me a photo of a 3/4 lb. sunfish (about 12 1/2 inches) on his cell phone claiming he caught it fishing on Granite Lake in 10 feet of water. I don’t doubt that there are some sunnies that large in Granite, but as the game wore on, apparently Wackler’s conscience started to bother him. He said they, Ray, Brian and himself, concocted the story to give Granite Lake credit when actually the fish was caught in Diamond Lake, north of Atwater where Ray has a son living. All I can say is, they’re upholding the tradition that anglers don’t always tell the

truth!

* There were a lot of loyal Laker fans who were stunned by the outcome of Maple Lake’s 10-inning 3-0 loss to Loretto on Sunday

evening. This was their second loss in the Region 12 playoffs elim- inating them as a contestant in the state tournament. Mitch Wurm pitched a great game, but the Lakers left too many men on base. Going 28 innings without scoring a run pretty much tells why the

Lakers are out of the

All in all it was a

great season for Maple Lake baseball fans and I’d like to say thanks to the Lakers for the entertainment they provided this sum-

mer. The nice part about those 7 inning games, they were over be- fore the mosquitoes invaded the ballpark. None of us wanted the season to end the way it did, but sometimes it happens that way and no amount of second guessing will change it.

It’s in your court by Judge Steve Halsey

It’s in your court

by Judge Steve Halsey

Specialty Courts A growing trend in Min- nesota courts is the establish- ment of specialty courts, such as drug courts, DWI courts, do- mestic violence courts, and vet- eran’s courts. A colleague earlier this year wrote about such courts as follows:

Solving problems may not be the catch-phrase to enter your mind when considering the purpose of our court system. However, that is an accurate de- scription of the daily role of judges throughout our state’s 87

counties. Now there is a formal court which has as its main pur- pose to solve problems. What is a “problem solving court” and why is there a concerted move towards formalizing such a court?

. Problem solving represents a shift from the traditional way in which the court system will deal with, for example, criminal offenders who may have a men- tal illness or drug addiction. The key change is that the judges work in a cooperative

stopped by the Messenger office Monday morning and was visibly stunned when we told him the Lakers lost. Some of the Laker pitchers will get drafted by the four North Star League teams who will be playing in the state tournament at Watkins and Cold Spring. That will be decided Aug. 16. Delano and Howard Lake have qual- ified and the two teams from the losing bracket will be decided this week, Aug. 12 and 13. Because of the rain delay Sunday we

made two trips to Delano, first to find out if there would be a game

Watkins fans supported their

teams well whenever they played at Maple Lake, both on the field and at the concession stand, and it’s a shame we won’t have the opportunity to return the favor. Sure there will be Laker fans at the state tournament but not in the numbers had the Lakers been play- ing. One fan quipped, they won’t need to order as much beer! Laker fans will be re-playing the two playoff losses for weeks to come, which is a normal and probably healthy reaction following such an outstanding season. One thing about baseball, there’s al- ways next year, and I, for one, am already looking forward to see- ing who will be taking the field in 2016. * Mike Muller was one of the goose hunters in the fields Saturday. He said his group of three bagged two geese as he mumbled some- thing about finding it difficult to get into a sitting shooting position from his lay-out blind. I know what he’s talking about, but didn’t give him a whole lot of sympathy. Another group from South Haven bagged five, he said.

South Haven bagged five, he said. * and the second as fans * way with prosecutors,

way with prosecutors, defense attorneys, probation officers, law enforcement, and social workers. The goal of this group approach is to develop a strat- egy which will encourage an of- fender to complete treatment and to stop the destructive be- haviors which brought that per- son before the court. I respectfully disagree with my judicial colleague that the role of a trial judge is to solve problems of the litigants. I have had spirited, but respect- ful, discussions with other col- leagues on this issue. I view my role as judge similar to that of a baseball umpire or football referee. A judge (or jury) de- cides the truth (the facts) of what occurred, applies the rules and laws, and decides the out- come. Simply put, the judge “calls balls and strikes.” The judge does not whisper to the .185 (batting average) hitter that the next pitch is likely a curveball, or calls a “ball” which is really a strike, to help the hitter avoid striking out again and being sent to the AAA club. Do judges want criminal de- fendants to comply with sen- tencing orders and probationary conditions, such as refraining from using drugs or alcohol, and completing chemical de- pendency treatment? Of course judges want that. However, I fear that calling specialty courts

“problem-solving courts” shifts responsibility for “solving the problem” from the person on probation to the court. Whose fault is it if the felon re-offends or violates probation by return- ing to a life of crime and drug use? It should not be the fault of the judge, but rather the respon- sibility of the defendant that they were unsuccessful. In summary, I understand and support the general philos- ophy of specialty courts. Sub- stantial financial and supportive resources have been devoted to specialty courts and more has been approved by the Legisla- ture. They have proven to be more successful than traditional probationary models. I just don’t like the idea that judges are expected to collaborate with a treatment team and solve the problems of criminal defen- dants which may be deep- seated and lifelong.

Question: Can you talk about the new increased fine if cited for texting and driving? Answer: Drivers who re- peatedly choose texting over safety while behind the wheel risk a higher fine for violating the law. Under the new en- hanced law, drivers face a $225 fine for second and subsequent violations of the texting while driving law, in addition to the current $50 fine. The $275 fine,

plus court fees, can cost an of- fender more than $300. Minnesota Statute 169.471- Texting is illegal, including when stopped in traffic.

o “No person may operate

a motor vehicle while using a

wireless communications de- vice to compose, read, or send an electronic message, when

the vehicle is in motion or part of traffic.”

o Also illegal to access the

web while the vehicle is in mo- tion or a part of traffic.

o It’s illegal for drivers with

a permit or provisional driver’s

license to use a cell phone while driving, except for emergencies to call 911. Distracted driving is a leading factor in crashes each year in Minnesota.

o Distracted driving ac-

counts for one in four crashes.

o Distracted driving is re-

sponsible for 60 deaths and 225 serious injuries each year.

o Driver inattention or dis-

traction is the number one con- tributing factor in multiple-vehicle crashes.

o Driver inattention or dis-

traction contributed to more

than 17 percent of all fatal crashes and more than 24 per-

cent of all injury crashes in

2014.

o In 2014, driver inattention

or distraction contributed to 61 deaths and more than 7,000 in- juries on Minnesota roads. Make the Right Choice

o Cell phones — Put the

phone down, turn it off or place it out of reach.

o Music and other controls

— Pre-program radio stations and arrange music in an easy- to-access spot. Adjust mirrors

and ventilation before traveling.

o Navigation — Map out

the destination and enter the

GPS route in advance.

o Eating and drinking —

Avoid messy foods and secure drinks.

o Children —Teach chil-

dren the importance of good be-

havior in a vehicle and model proper driving behavior.

o Passengers — Speak up

to stop drivers from distracted

driving behavior and offer to help with anything that takes the driver’s attention off the road. A portion of state statutes was used with permission from the Office of the Revisor of

County Board

continued from page 1

In other items on the Aug. 4

agenda, the board:

* Set the date for the public

hearing to approve the issuance of capital improvement bonds for the construction of the new Public Works Building. The bonds are expected to be capped at $17.3 million to be paid off over a 20-year period. If approved, the bonds will be issued in September and deliv- ered to the county in October. By a 3-0 vote, the board ap- proved setting the date. Com- missioner Mark Daleiden was not at the Aug. 4 meeting and Commissioner Charlie Borrell

abstained from voting.

* Approved setting 8 a.m.

Monday, March 7, for the “go-

live” date for campground reservations in Wright County parks, as well as revising the campground reservation policy from “first come” designation to “same day” reservations.

* Authorized signatures on a

law enforcement contract with

the City of Albertville for 2016- 17. The contract calls for the city to get eight hours of deputy patrol service per day. The board also approved a two-year agreement with the City of Maple Lake.

* Officially adopted the

technology committee charter. The initial charter had been pre- sented to the board in July. The amended charter includes lan- guage changes concerning the voting process and revisions to the evaluation process.

* Approved attendance to

the next Tri-County Forensic

Lab Advisory Board meeting for 2 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 11.

* Authorized an amendment

to the July 22 personnel com- mittee minutes to change the job performance review of highway engineer Virgil Hawkins from “meets expecta- tions” to “exceeds expecta- tions.”

* Approved an information

security assessment for 2016. The project would test the vul- nerability of the county’s infor- mation technology network and would take eight to 10 weeks to

complete. The project will be

funded out of the 2016 Capital Improvement Projects budget.

* Set prospective dates of

10:30 a.m. Tuesday, Aug. 11, and1 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 12, to interview two candidates for the Clearwater River Watershed

District Board of Managers.

The term of current board member Jeff Golden’s term

* Announced the cancella-

tion of the Sept. 8 board meet- ing due to five Tuesdays in the

month. Sept. 8 was selected be- cause of its proximity to the Labor Day holiday weekend.

* Approved a plat for “Hid-

Local woman trains, races horses

by Brenda Erdahl Correspondent

It’s not easy to rein in a horse running at full speed and con- vince her to turn sharply, weave through six poles, turn again and weave her way back then bolt for the finish line, but that is the art of pole bending and the chal- lenge for LuAnn Vandergon of Maple Lake. The 56-year-old has been competing in this high adrenaline sport for 15 years now and two weeks ago she hit what will likely prove to be one of her top performances of the six-month pole bending season. On Thursday, July 23, Van- dergon and her horse, Passion, found themselves at the Lee and Rose Warner Coliseum at the Minnesota State Fair grounds for a four-day tournament, and that is where they earned the title of Reserve All-Around at the biggest competition either of them has ever done. As Reserve All-Around, Van- dergon and Passion ran the sec- ond-best overall time of the four-day tournament in both pole bending and barrel racing out of more than 300 entrants from six different states. “I’m pleased, but it was a lot of work,” Vandergon said, adding that it was probably the best overall performance she has had with her 11-year-old mare, Passion. Its second year in the running, this tournament, named the Min- nesota Challenge, is the biggest of its kind in the state, paying out more than $103,000 to winners

throughout the four-day event. “With that level of competi- tion, I felt that I did really well,” Vandergon said. Vandergon has worked with horses nearly all of her life. She got her first horse when she was five years old. When she was 10, her family moved to Maple Lake where they continued to raise horses. Eventually she married Mark and started farming. Over the years she and her daughter, Jacki, have competed with their horses in various events, including games and barrel racing. These days the couple’s farm just north of Maple Lake is a lit- tle quieter with just three horses, a few cats and dogs to keep the couple company, but they are never at a loss for something to do.

Training is constant when competing with horses. From early April until the end of Sep- tember Vandergon is training and competing. Over that six-month period she’ll race in 12 to 15 tourna- ments all over the state of Min- nesota, and as for training, “it seems like we’re always train- ing,” she said. Vandergon starts training her horses when they are two years old and it’s a long process. “I don’t like to push them, I like to go slow to keep a sound mind and a sound body,” she said. After about three years of solid training they are ready to compete, then it is just a matter of practicing in their off-time.

ment.

“Once they are trained they know the job and it is just a mat- ter of keeping them physically fit and in condition,” she said. Vandergon has trained and competed with several horses over the years. The best perform- ance she has ever had was last year with a horse named Prophet. The pair won first place in the senior division at a National Bar- rel Horse Association competi- tion in Winona, and the reward was a new saddle. But Vandergon doesn’t just compete for prizes. The eques-

trian community is known for its soft heart, she said, and will often host benefit competitions for local people who are going through tough times. In fact, the barrel racing association has a benefit coming up for local boy, Trevor Pribyl, who has been fighting cancer. Vandergon plans to compete in that one later this summer. “I’m proud of what I’ve done,” Vandergon said. “I’ve home raised my horses and I’ve done all the training. That is my biggest accomplishment.”

Horse trainer, Clinton Anderson, comes to Maple Lake

Last weekend Clinton Ander- son brought three days of in- depth instruction covering the fundamentals of his horse train- ing method to Arrowhead Arena in Maple Lake. The Downunder Horsemanship clinic was origi- nally set to be held in Maple Plain but was relocated to Maple Lake last minute. The clinic fea- tured Anderson and his certified clinicians working with 20

horses and riders as they learned 27 groundwork and riding exer- cises. An Australian native, Ander- son moved to the U.S. in the late 1990s and launched Downunder Horsemanship. His method is based on mutual respect and un- derstanding between horse and rider by following a step-by-step program. Anderson and Dow- nunder Horsemanship are recog-

nized as world leaders in the equestrian industry and continue to offer the very best in innova- tion, inspiration and instruction.

Young readers say “so long” to Boone

12, 2015 Page 7 Young readers say “so long” to Boone Everybody got a chance to

Everybody got a chance to read a book to Boone this week, the final meeting of the summer library program. Read- ers went home with the Maple Lake Business Bucks they earned with their weekly Paw Points, the journals they’ve been keeping all summer, a pawprint pencil, and a bookmark with Boone’s picture and his reminder to “Remember to Read!” Books with Boone will be back at the library next summer, when Boone hopes to see all of his old friends, along with a few new young readers. Pictured in the front are Kalli Hennen, Danica Hageman and Dylan Hennen. In the back are Ben Ogram, Lisa and Boone, Carter Ertel, Hans Peterson, Larson Melgaard, Kenlyn Marsicek, Landon Marsicek and Christina Ogram. (Photo submitted by Terry Mooney)

M.L.F.D. Burn

continued from page 1

To facilitate the teaching op- portunity, the Maple Lake Fire Department hired a professional training company to plan and de- tail the burn at the Jurgen’s home at 2518 County Road 8 NW. “There’s a lot to do to per- form a training burn.” said Scott Carriveau owner of Customized Fire Rescue Training, Inc. “We have to obtain a DNR permit, no- tify the MPCA that there is an in- tent to perform a demolition, have the house tested for as- bestos-containing materials and insure that NFPA guideline 1403 is followed. We were at the site for five hours, and I easily have

16 hours of prep time for this

house burn. “All of our instructors are from Minnesota’s qualified in- structor list,” said Carriveau. “There are three Maple Lake Firefighters on each fire attack team and three instructors are as- signed to each team, one to go in alongside the Maple Lake team and two others manning a second hose. It is some of the best train- ing we can give our firefighters.” “The practice burn went very

well,” said MLFD Chief Todd Borell. “There were no surprises. We had 15 firefighters that went into live burns along with 10 out- side firefighters plus instructors. We had one Level 1 practice fire and the rest were Level 2s.” “A Level 1 fire is a teaching fire, more for beginner firefight- ers,” said Carriveau. “The team

is in the doorway of the fire room, we use pallets, straw and

cardboard, all Class A materials,

to light the fire and the firefight-

ers are able to watch and see how

a fire grows and reacts before

putting it out and ventilating the room. In a Level 2 fire, the team

is outside the building and the

fire is started inside. The fire-

fighters start by doing a ‘size-up’ before formulating a plan to put out the fire. This drill more

closely resembles an actual fire we’d be called to.”

The Maple Lake Fire Depart- ment extends its sincere thanks to the Jurgen’s family for allow-

ing their home to be used for this training exercise.

Student-run camp helps children through and beyond their parent’s cancer

Camp Kesem, a national or- ganization that provides a life- long peer support network to help children, ages 6 to 16, through and beyond their par- ent’s cancer, is pleased to kick off its 4th annual season of camp in Willow River, MN. Anchored in a network of free programs that are led by passionate college student vol- unteers across the country, Camp Kesem Minnesota is or- ganized locally in Willow River by dedicated students from the University of Minnesota. This summer, Camp Kesem at Min- nesota will host 120 campers over two separate weeks of camp from August 10-15 and August 17-22 at Camp One Heartland in Willow River. This will be the first year that Camp Kesem Minnesota will host two separate weeks of camp in order to serve its growing number of campers. With 1.7 million cancer cases a year in the United States, there are more than 3 million children impacted by a parent’s cancer and Camp Kesem recognizes and embraces this often-over- looked population. Because they don’t appear sick, their needs are often overlooked and they suffer quietly, leading to academic, so- cial, emotional, and develop- mental problems. Camp Kesem helps these children through and beyond their parent’s cancer by providing a care-free and fun en- vironment in which they can in- teract and bond with peers who face similar struggles at home. Children that attend Camp Kesem at Minnesota will partic- ipate in a host of fun activities

including sports, drama, arts and crafts, adventurous scavenger hunts, and talent shows. The teen campers will also be going on an off-campus adventure to the Glensheen Mansion and Spirit Mountain. Nightly “Cabin Chats” allow campers to open

up to their peers and counselors. “For one blissful week he was just himself, living the life instead of existing in it…not someone’s caregiver, child, son, brother, or anything else.” ~ Camper Parent, Matt’s Mom Camp Kesem at Minnesota is organized by dedicated students

at the University of Minnesota

who work year-long to plan and

fundraise for an impactful week

of camp. Student volunteers and

counselors experience leader- ship development and undergo 20 hours of extensive training prior to camp. Camp Kesem is provided free of charge to all participating families and is therefore supported by private donations and community sup- port. “I am blessed to have been a counselor, and to have served as co-director of this organization

for two years. With this position, I have been given the unique op- portunity to oversee the develop- ment of my peers along with all of the campers, a gift that has strengthened my leadership skills and made me love this or- ganization even more.” ~Alumni, Previous Co-Direc- ture, Alek (Pecs) Tomich For more information about the camp and how to register,

Clinics rewarded for optimal care and patient outcomes

Several CentraCare Health clinic sites were recognized for delivering optimal care and im- proving specific patient out- comes as part of the 2015 Minnesota Bridges to Excel- lence program and the Min- nesota Quality Incentive Payment System, a State of Min- nesota pay-for-performance pro- gram administered by the Minnesota Health Action Group. These clinics were recog- nized for achieving specific clin- ical outcomes for patients with diabetes, vascular disease or de- pression. Meeting achievement goals is the highest level of recognition and CentraCare Clinic – St. Joseph and Cen- traCare Clinic – River Campus Internal Medicine were recog- nized for achieving optimal dia- betes care. CentraCare Health’s clinic sites in St. Joseph, Melrose,

Monticello and Sauk Centre were recognized for meeting the improvement goal for optimal vascular care. CentraCare Health - Monticello Medical Group also met the improve- ment goal for depression care and CentraCare’s clinic site in Eagle Bend (Eagle Valley Clinic) was recognized for opti- mal diabetes care. “I consider Minnesota to be one of the best in the country for community measures and qual- ity metrics,” said CentraCare Clinic Medical Director George Morris, MD. “We are helping to set the bar for the nation.” The Minnesota Bridges to Excellence program uses pub- licly reported clinical data to identify clinics that meet or ex- ceed optimal care standards for

a specified percentage of pa-

tients with diabetes, vascular disease and depression.

Cold bats end Lakers’ season

By Matt Brown Sports Writer

The Maple Lake Lakers un- expectedly ended their season with a pair of losses in the 12C Regional Tournament. The num- ber-one seeded Lakers failed to score a single run in a combined 19 innings, a stunning develop- ment for a team that averaged nearly eight runs a game in the regular season.

Maple Plain 8 Maple Lake 0 Maple Lake was the home team on Wednesday at Delano in the first game of the regional playoffs. They faced an under- rated Maple Plain team and pitcher Adam Gregg, who was limited to under six innings in the regular season but is known for strong pitching. The Lakers started Todd Fuller, who was coming off a phenomenal game against Cold Spring. The offense got going in the second, with Maple Plain scoring, thanks in part to a lead-off double. Maple Lake answered in the bottom of the inning by putting men on second and third but with two outs they could not drive in any runs. The Lakers threatened again in the third with a lead-off single by Riley Decker and a

sacrifice bunt by Luke Fobbe to put Decker in scoring position with one out, but the team could not get the hit they needed to even the score. The Diamond Devils did most of their damage

in the sixth and seventh, scoring

a combined five runs to go up by

six. Graham Brown drew a lead- off walk in the eighth and made it to second on a two-out Bert Marsnik single but could not come in before the inning ended. Maple Plain scored two more in the ninth to seal the victory. After the game some players noted that Maple Plain was often missing key players during the

regular season and that they are

a different squad when the entire team comes to play.

Loretto 3 Maple Lake 0 The re-match of the region championship from last year

took place after a rain-delayed

start on Sunday in the first elim- ination game of the tournament. Maple Lake threw Mitch Wurm, who looked like a man on a mis- sion from the very start. The Lakers tried to jump on Loretto

in the first with a two-out rally

led by singles from Bert Marsnik and Chad Raiche, but a

hard liner to the shortstop ended the inning. Maple Lake threat- ened again in the third, loading the bases on a few walks and Luke Fobbe singled with only one out, only to see the inning end thanks to close plays. Dusty Decker led off the fourth with a double but got stranded. Fobbe

came up during a two-out rally with two on, only to see his shot

to right field get snapped up by

the outfielder. Tied 0-0 after

nine, the Larks scored three in the 10th to put Maple Lake in the hot seat. Fobbe got on with

a single and one out but only

managed to make it to second before the inning ended. No of- ficial statistics were available, but Wurm threw all 10 innings, giving up three runs on eight hits, four walks with three strikeouts. The Lakers would like to thank all of their fans for a great season.

The Catch by Jeff Plattner

The Catch

by Jeff Plattner

2015 College Football Preview (Part I) Unsurprisingly, last season’s inaugural college football play- off was a smashing success. How will the 2015 college foot- ball season compare, what player will take home the Heis- man Trophy, who will be among the final four at season’s end, what teams will be the odd ones out, and who will be crowned national champions when it’s all said and done? We’ll take our best shot at answering those questions in this two-part pre- view of the 2015 college foot- ball season.

ACC Predicted Atlantic Champ:

Clemson (11-1) The Tigers have an early season test when they take on Notre Dame and Geor- gia Tech in back-to-back weeks. But, thankfully, both of those contests take place at home, in Death Valley, as does the matchup that will ultimately de- cide the Atlantic division, versus Florida State, on November 7th. If QB Deshaun Watson is as healthy as he claims he is, the Tigers’ offense could be scary. Watson’s return to health, cou- pled with former Seminoles QB, Jameis Winston’s, exit to the NFL, is why Clemson will es- cape against Florida State and

thus win the Atlantic division. Coastal Champ: Georgia Tech (10-2) Junior QB Justin Thomas returns and leads a triple-option offense that’s as fun to watch as any offense in the country. A year ago, the Yel- low Jackets led the nation in rushing with 4,789 yards and 47 TDs, including three players with at least 850 yards rushing and 8 TDs. Don’t Sleep On: Florida State – Sure, they lost 11 play- ers to the NFL Draft, including five in the first two rounds, but this is Florida State. They will simply reload and coach Jimbo Fisher knows how to win. Big 12 Champ: TCU (12-0) The Horned Frogs are hungry, as they were the odd team out of last year’s playoff. Once again, the Big 12 is essentially a two- team race between TCU and the Baylor Bears. What gives the Frogs the edge? The Heisman hopeful QB, Trevone Boykin, who, Gophers fans, if they don’t recall last season’s 30-7 drub- bing, will get to know him very well on opening day, September 3rd. With weapons at his dis- posal, Boykin looks to improve on over 4,600 combined rushing and passing yards and 41 TDs. Don’t Sleep On: Baylor

While QB Bryce Petty is gone, the Bears return a ton of talent on the offensive side of the ball. Nearly one-fifth of that, literally, comes in the form of 6’7”, 392- lb. TE, LaQuan McGowan, who is actually lighter than a year ago. WRs KD Cannon, Corey Coleman, and Jay Lee combined for over 2,700 yards and 25 TDs last year and returning RB, Shock Linwood, rushed for 1,252 and 16 scores. One of the most entertaining games of the year (if you like offense) should be the day after Thanksgiving, when the Bears take on TCU. Last season, Baylor erased a 58- 37 deficit, in the last 11:00, to win 61-58, as time expired.

Pac-12

North Champ: Oregon (10- 2) It’ll be a transition year for the Ducks, as Heisman Trophy winning QB, Marcus Mariota, is off to the NFL. However, even in transition, Oregon should be plenty good enough to win the Pac-12 North for the fifth time in seven years. Eastern Wash- ington transfer, Vernon Adams Jr., who’s expected to replace Mariota, will have plenty of holdovers from last season’s squad. Among those returning to Eugene are leading rusher, Royce Freeman (1,365 yards, 18TDs), and leading receiver, Byron Marshall (1,003 yards,

6TDs).

South Champ: Arizona (10- 2) The SEC West may be the best division in college football, but in 2015 the Pac-12 South shouldn’t be far behind. With

four legitimate contenders (USC, UCLA, Arizona State, and Arizona), the Wildcats are probably the long shot of the group, despite winning the divi- sion last season. The scheduling gods are working against QB Anu Solomon and the Wildcats, as they will not get a bye week, and to make things even more difficult, three of their four biggest matchups come on the road (Stanford, USC, and Ari- zona State). However, unlike USC and Arizona State, they do not have to face Oregon. Maybe that in itself is worth giving up their bye week. Either way, Solomon’s redshirt freshman season was a success, as he neared 3,800 passing yards and 28TDs, while leading Arizona to the Fiesta Bowl. Anchoring the defense is the best LB in the na- tion, Scooby Wright, who tallied 163 tackles, 14 sacks, and 29 tackles for loss last season. Don’t Sleep On: USC – First round NFL draft picks Leonard Williams (DE) and Nelson Agholor (WR) leave big holes to fill, but QB Cody Kessler is as good as it gets and despite a tough schedule, will keep the Trojans in the hunt, until the very end. In his last five wins, Kessler completed 70% of his passes for 357 yards per game and threw 25 TDs against just 2 INTs. As tough as Arizona’s conference schedule looks, USC’s may be worse, with games against Stanford, Arizona State, Arizona, Oregon, and UCLA.

SEC East Champ: Georgia (8-4) In the seven games Todd Gurley missed last season, RB Nick Chubb filled in and the Bulldogs didn’t miss a beat. Chubb aver- aged 168 yards rushing in those games and scored 10 TDs. With the QB position up in the air, Georgia will rely heavily on their ground attack and Chubbs is sure to earn Heisman consid- eration. Beginning October 3rd, the Bulldogs’ schedule gets pretty ugly. In consecutive weeks, they host Alabama, travel to Tennessee to play a Volunteers team making plenty of pre-season noise, then it’s back home to host reigning SEC East champ, Missouri, and down to Jacksonville, to take on Florida. If that isn’t enough, two of their last three are on the road at Auburn and Georgia Tech. West Champ: Auburn (11-1) I’m buying the hype on QB Je- remy Johnson. He’s 6’5”, 240- lbs., can run and deliver the ball from the pocket. Sound famil- iar? Johnson may remind some folks of Cam Newton, who led Auburn to a title in 2010. The Tigers struggled last year, but in addition to Johnson, there will be several new faces, via trans- fer, incoming freshmen, and oth- ers returning from injury. Another new face is defensive coordinator Will Muschamp, the former Florida Gators head coach, who is sure to fix what was often a Swiss-cheese defen- sive unit in 2014. Auburn’s sea- son will hinge on whether or not

they can survive the first four weeks, in which they face Louisville (at the Georgia Dome), travel to LSU, and host Mississippi State. Make it through that stretch and they’ll have a great chance to make some playoff noise. The last week of the season, they host Alabama, in a game that will likely crown the SEC West champion. Don’t Sleep On: Alabama – Like many conferences, the SEC West may come down to a head -to-head meeting. This season, I gave Auburn the nod over Ala- bama for two reasons. Auburn has the edge at the QB position and they host the Crimson Tide in their only meeting. However, even if ‘Bama falls to the Tigers, they may still have a strong enough resume to sneak into the playoff. Whoever replaces Blake Sims at QB can breath a sigh of relief, knowing that Derrick Henry and Kenyan Drake are in the backfield. The defense will again be solid, but the biggest question mark is who will fill WR Amari Cooper’s shoes? Last year, Cooper caught 124 balls for 1,727 yards and 16 TDs. Don’t miss Part II where we’ll take a look at the Big Ten, see what non-power five confer- ence teams may figure into the college football playoff (Notre Dame), run down players who haven’t been mentioned, but who you should keep an eye on in 2015, and finally make our college football playoff predic- tions.

10, and runs through Sunday, Nov. 29. In the south zone, duck season is Saturday, Sept. 26, through Sunday, Oct. 4, closes for 10 days, then reopens Thursday, Oct. 15, and runs through Friday,

Dec. 4. The re-opening coincides with the annual statewide teach- ers’ conference on Oct. 15-16 when many schools do not schedule classes. The only bag limit change from the 2015 season is for can- vasback, which increases from one to two per day. The daily duck bag limit remains six ducks per day. The mallard bag limit re- mains four per day, including two hen mallards. The daily bag lim- its remain at three for wood duck and three for scaup. All states in the Mississippi Flyway were offered the option for a September teal season or two bonus blue-winged teal dur- ing the regular season. Minnesota did not participate in either teal option last year and again made the choice not to take a teal sea- son or bonus blue-winged teal option this year. “We’ve had nearly two decades of liberal duck seasons with 60 days of hunting and six-

duck daily bag limits,” said DNR Commissioner Tom Landwehr. “In recent years, the duck season has opened one week earlier than in the past, which has afforded Minnesota hunters more oppor- tunity to take teal and wood ducks.” “For these reasons, we don’t believe that an early teal season or further liberalization by adding two bonus blue-winged teal to the daily bag for the first part of the season is needed,” Landwehr said. Mallard abundance from a continental spring survey that in- cludes Minnesota is used to de- termine overall duck season length. This year’s estimate was

11.8 million mallards, which was

well above the long-term aver- age. Since 1997, duck season length has been 60 days each

year and the mallard population has ranged from 6.8 million to

11.8 million mallards.

“The status of mallards, and

most other species of ducks im- portant to Minnesota hunters, is very good this year based on spring populations surveys,” Cordts said. Youth waterfowl day Youth Waterfowl Day will be Saturday, Sept. 12. Hunters ages 15 and under may take regular season bag limits when accompa- nied by an adult age 18 or older. Youth may take Canada geese, mergansers, coots and moorhens from a half-hour before sunrise to 4 p.m. Motorized decoy restric- tions are in effect. Five geese may be taken statewide. The ac- companying adult can’t hunt ducks that day and does not need

a license. However, an adult may

take Canada geese if properly li- censed.

Canada goose seasons and limits Canada goose hunting is open

in the three duck zones, and also

in an intensive harvest zone. For

a map of the intensive zone and

other information, see

www.mndnr.gov/hunting/water-

fowl. The August Canada goose management harvest is Saturday, Aug. 8, through Sunday, Aug. 23, in the intensive harvest zone only. The bag limit is 10 per day. A $4 permit is required. This is the third year Canada goose har- vest has been allowed during Au- gust due to high populations of Canada geese and the damage they cause to agricultural crops. The early September Canada goose season will open statewide on Saturday, Sept. 5, and run

through Tuesday, Sept. 22. Bag limits for Canada geese are 10

per day in the intensive harvest zone and five per day in the rest of the state. A $4 permit is re- quired to hunt Canada geese dur- ing the September season. The restriction prohibiting hunting within 100 yards of surface water remains in effect in the northwest

goose zone, Carlos Avery

Wildlife Management Area, Ocheda Lake Game Refuge and an area surrounding Swan Lake in Nicollet County. Early season goose hunters should consult the 2015 Waterfowl Supplement for zone maps and additional details. Minnesota’s regular goose season will open in conjunction with the duck season statewide on Sept. 26, with a bag limit of three dark geese per day the en- tire season. “Dark” geese include Canada geese, white-fronted geese, and brant. Goose season will be closed in the central and south duck zones when duck sea- son is closed. Sandhill crane season The season for sandhill cranes is Saturday, Sept. 12, to Sunday, Oct. 18, in the northwest goose and sandhill crane zone only. The daily bag limit will be one sand- hill crane per day. A $3 sandhill crane permit is required in addi- tion to a small game hunting li- cense.
