_A_round the Area Winthrop News Wednesday, October10,2012oPage10 rea News Legal Notices Cologne Academy reading program receives Target grant Cologne Academy recently received a $2,000 early childhood reading grant award from Target Corp. The grant award will be used to purchase books for the Cologne Academy Book Buddies Program. Cologne Academy established the Book Buddies Program upon its opening in 2008. The program, a reading mentor ini- tiative, teams older students with younger students within the school. It is designed to help students devel- op an interest in reading while building important liter- acy skills such as reading comprehension. "Cologne Academy's Book Buddies Program has already demon- strated measurable success in the students' reading ability gains," said Lynn Gluck Peterson, the school's executive director. "It is not only exemplified in litera- cy advancements, but also improves all other areas of learning. The addition of new books with allow us to continue and expand our program with our growing enrollment ensuring continued success." Minneapolis- based Target Corp. has given 5 percent of its income through community grants and programs since 1946, which includes the Early Childhood Reading Grant. -Belle Plaine Herald Two suspects charged The Fairfax Police Department with assistance from the Renville County Sheriff's office have solved a crime in which over 900 lbs of copper was stolen from the Prinsco site in Faiffax. "We interviewed two adult male suspects who confessed to the theft," said Fairfax Police Chief Kevin Hagen. "They will be charged with felony theft in the coming weeks." While Hagen was not at liberty to say names, he did indicate the suspects are "from out of town." Theft of copper is a trendy crime at the moment as on the black market the material is going for a rate of $2 per pound. This $1,800 amount puts the charges at the felony level. -Standard-Gazette Crash kills two Two young men were killed in a crash southwest of Hutchinson Friday night after the car they were riding in crashed and burst into flames. According to the McLeod County Sheriff's Office, Dustin James Odenthal, 22, of Hutchinson, and Brandon Barrett Lindeman, 23, of Brownton, were traveling in a BMW near 150th Street and Vale Avenue shortly after 11:30 p.m. The car went off the road and struck a farm imple- ment in a field. Deputies responded to the report of a single-vehicle crash and fire to find Odenthal and Lindeman both dead at the scene. Hutchinson Police, State Patrol, Hutchinson Fire, Allina Ambulance and the County Highway Department also responded to the scene. -Hutchinson Leader Rollover claims life Bert Henry Statema, 84, of Stewart, died Thursday morning at about 11:30 a.m. when the 2003 Ford Windstar he was driving left County Road 7 just north- east of Stewart, hit a power pole and rolled onto its top. His wife Kathleen Marie Statema, age unknown, was flown by LifeLink helicopter to Hennepin County Medical Center. -The McLeod County Chronicle Shoplifters caught south of New Auburn A pair of suspected shoplifters who caught the attention of Walmart security employees across the Midwest were apprehended in a vehicle by a trooper from the Minnesota State Patrol along Highway 22 south of New Auburn on Wednesday, Sept. 26, accord- ing to an article in The Free Press. The two woman who were arrested and charged with felony theft were Noe Baldiva-Corral, 59, and Samantha Velez-Diaz, 26. The two suspects allegedly grabbed an $80 suitcase from Walmart in Mankato and filled it with more than 200 DVDs worth a total of nearly $5,000, according to the article. The two women are suspected of stealing more than $100,000 in merchandise from Walmart stores in Minnesota, Wisconsin, North Dakota and South Dakota. It is still not clear how many people are involved in what authorities suspect is a shoplifting network, according to the article. -Arlington Enterprise Motorcyclist injured A woman was injured in a motorcycle accident at the intersection of County Road 12 and County Road 116 around 5 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 30, according to the Sibley County Sheriff's Department. Joy A. Whitehead, 48, Jordan, was traveling northbound into the curve when she pointed out a can that was in the roadway to other riders behind her, according to the report. Whitehead reportedly lost control of the motor- cycle which left the roadway and entered the ditch. Whitehead, who was wearing a helmet, was transport- ed by the Arlington Ambulance to the Sibley Medical Center in Arlington. -Arlington Enterprise NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING ON ANNEXATION UNINCORPORATED PROPERTY BY ORDINANCE TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN: Notice is hereby given that the council of the City of Winthrop, Minnesota, will meet at 7:30 p.m. on November 5, on the second floor of the Winthrop City Hall, to consider, and possibly adopt, an ordinance annexing 407 West Grant Street into the City limits of the City of Winthrop. The authority for such annexation is Minnesota Statute Sections 414.033 subdivision 2(3) and 414.033, subdivi- sion 3. A copy of the ordinance annexing the property' is available upon request at the Winthrop City Hall.

Immediately following the public hearing, it is expected that the Winthrop City Council will vote on whether or not to pass the annexation ordinance. Mark Erickson City Administrator Apply fall lawn fertilizer by mid-October University of Minnesota Extension has adjusted long- standing recommendations on fall nitrogen fertility to turfgrass and now advocates for applications to be made no later than mid- October. This recommendation aims to reduce the negative envi- ronmental impacts of nitrogen applications in the late fall, while maximizing the turfgrass growth benefits for the cost-conscious consumer or turfgrass manager. The previous recommendation on late fall-applied nitrogen was one pound of quick-release nitro- gen per 1000 square feet after the last mowing of the season. "That meant late October or early November," said Extension turfgrass educator Sam Bauer, whose research helped lead to the new recommendation. "The idea was that the nitrogen is absorbed by the roots, promoting plant growth the following spring." However, Bauer's research showed that the uptake capacity for tuff during cold temperatures is typically very low, meaning that much of the nitrogen in fertilizer would be lost to the environment. When nitrogen (particularly nitrate) leaches into the ground water, it can affect the safety of drinking water supplies. While properly maintained landscapes have been proven to be very receptive of nitrogen applications, Organic farmers, processors have until October 31 to apply for certification rebate Funding for the program is pro- vided to the Minnesota Department of Agriculture by the USDA as authorized in the 2008 Farm Bill. Moynihan says certified opera- tions can get a copy of the applica- tion packet at or by calling 651-201-6012. Again, the deadline to apply is October 31. Program. So far, the Minnesota Department of Agriculture (MDA) has received applications from about 300 certified organic farms and businesses. MDA Organic Program Administrator Meg Moynihan estimates there are about 700 certified organic and roughly 250 processors in the state. "The program reimburses up to 75 percent of the costs associated with organic certification," said Moynihan. "We don't want any- body to miss out on the opportuni- ty for a rebate, so we're reminding people to apply now." Organic certification is a third- party audit system providing con- sumer assurance that organic foods were grown and handled according to uniform USDA organic stan- dards. Certified operations incur fees ranging from several hundred to several thousand dollars each 453296817 879451326 126873954 541738269 982164573 367529481 614382795 738915642 295647138 month to apply for this year's Organic Certification Cost Share year.

Collaboration between the University of Minnesota and University of Wisconsin-Madison was important in determining the effects of nitrogen applications throughout the region. Controlled-environment research at Madison demonstrated that only 11 percent of the fertilizer nitro- gen was taken up by the tuff under a mid-November temperature regime. Mid-September applica- tions resulted in greater than 75 percent nitrogen absorbed and uti- lized for growth. During Bauer's putting green research in the fall of 2009, tem- perature played more of a role than the specific date of applica- tion. "We had several cases in which upper soil temperatures dropped to nearly 40 degrees in October," said Bauer. "When it rained following a nitrogen appli- cation, significantly less nitrogen was recovered in the plant under these low temperatures." Generally, the remaining nitrogen would be lost to the environment. While the recommendation is now to complete any fertilizer applications by mid-October, it's also important to reduce fertilizer rates during the month or to use a fertilizer that contains at least half of its nitrogen in slow-release fornl. "Considering that fertilizer prices have tripled in the last decade, applications extending into November also meant a loss to the pocketbook," said Bauer. "Unfortunately, there's little evi- dence to show these added costs guarantee a lush, green lawn the following spring." The new Extension recom- mendations are not meant to downplay the importance of ade- quate nitrogen for winter survival of tuff, but rather to shed light on the fact that homeowners and tuff- grass managers should not con- sciously apply fertilizer in envi- ronments conducive to nutrient loss, such as the late fall when growth potential is low. In order to maximiz e nitrogen absorption, Extension recom- mends that homeowners or tuff- grass managers: Make all fertilizer applica- tions before mid-October. Combine quick-release and slow-release nitrogen sources when applying rates above 0.5 lb. nitrogen per 1000 sq. ft. Be aware of temperature and precipitation impacts on your fer- tilizer applications. V i s i t for more tuffgrass information.
