The City of Starbuck recently hired new City Clerk Andrew Langholz who began his first day of work on Monday, June 8. Here is a little bit about him. Welcome to Starbuck Andrew!
Q. Where are you from?
A. I was born and raised in New Ulm, Minnesota, approximately 140 miles Southeast of Starbuck.
Q. Where did you go to school?
A. I attended New Ulm Senior High, from there I enrolled at Minnesota State University - Mankato for both my Undergraduate and Graduate School. I received my Bachelor’s Degree in May 2013, where I double majored in Ethnic Studies and Urban & Regional Studies and minored in Political Science. I am currently pursuing my Master’s Degree in Urban & Regional Studies, which I plan to complete by May 2016.
Q. What goals do you have for yourself?
A. One long-term goal that I have set for myself is to become a City Administrator and I believe that I’m well on my way to achieving this goal. My coursework in conjunction with my previous experiences at various internships have allowed me to establish a solid foundation in the field of local government. My new position as City Clerk will grant me the opportunity to fully immerse myself in all facets of local government and will only help me in reaching this goal.
Q. What goals do you have for Starbuck?
A. Coming into this position, I will focus on two major goals for the City of Starbuck. First, I would like to bring stability to the City. Not only pertaining to city operations but also creating a stable and welcoming environment for all residents, business owners, and visitors that support the community. My second goal is to help the City of Starbuck prepare for the future. Preparation will take the form of creating a comprehensive plan, updating local ordinances and planning for necessary infrastructure improvements.
Is this your first experience with Starbuck or had you been here before? How do you like the city so far?
This is my first experience in the City of Starbuck. I was able to find a nice apartment and I thoroughly enjoy small town living. I like the fact that everybody knows each other and that everything is within walking distance, these two elements help to foster a strong sense of community.
Hobbies
The two most time consuming hobbies that I currently take part in are golfing and fishing. However, I also enjoy bowling and watching movies in the theater.

Early Childhood Programs Make The Move

Minnewaska’s early childhood programs make the move

Members of the Minnewaska Futbol Club, Minnewaska District staff and the Sentence to Serve crews from both Douglas and Pope counties recently put their muscles to the test, moving Minnewaska’s early childhood programs to their new, temporary home at the Sacred Heart Catholic Church education building (105 North Franklin Street, Glenwood).

The programs, including Early Childhood Family Education (ECFE), Minnewaska Preschool and Kinder Camp, needed to be relocated after the sale of the district’s early childhood building to Glacial Ridge Health System earlier this year. The long-term plan is to move the early childhood programs to Minnewaska Area Elementary School for the 2016-17 school year. That move coincides with district fourth-graders, currently at MAES, moving to the Minnewaska Area High School campus.

Cathy Kinney, Early Childhood coordinator, said the early childhood programs will run as usual while in their temporary home. She said assistance from the Sentence to Serve crews was critical in getting the programs relocated. “It was a very big deal that they helped,” she said.

While everything has physically been moved, the space isn’t set up quite yet, and half of the programs’ equipment and supplies are currently in storage because of the smaller location. Kinney said everything will be ready to go by Kindercamp, set for Aug. 3-6 and Aug. 10-13.

Notes From The Capital

Monday, June 22, 2015

paul anderson 150With the passage of financial bills during the recent special session of the Legislature, the next two-year budget for the state of Minnesota has been completed.  Spending has been increased, although the percentage of that increase is one of the smallest in recent years.  Over-all, we will spend 5.3 percent more than in the current biennium ending June 30, with the largest increase being in the area of K-12 education.

Spending in the area of agriculture, while not a large portion of the state budget, saw a sizeable increase.  One of the reasons for that was additional funding earmarked for the fight against Avian Influenza.  State agencies will receive an additional $6.5 million for their work in this area.  Those agencies include the departments of Agriculture, Health, and Public Safety, along with the Board of Animal Health and the DNR.  In addition, $10 million was allocated to the Rural Finance Authority to make no-interest loans to producers affected by the disease.  Another $26 million was allocated to the University of Minnesota in the bonding bill to improve the poultry testing lab in Willmar and the veterinary isolation facility on the University campus in St. Paul.

Notes From The Capital

Monday, June 15, 2015

Although it had some anxious moments, the special session of the legislature came to an end early this past Saturday morning, and after the governor signed the bills, Minnesota’s upcoming two-year budget is finally complete.  Our make-shift chamber in a State Office Building committee room made for some tight quarters, with House members, staff, media, and visitors all cramped together, but things went relatively smoothly and the necessary business got done.  In all, six bills were passed, including the massive K-12 education bill that spends $17 billion over the next two years.

The main change in that bill from the one vetoed earlier by Gov. Dayton is the addition of $125 million in new funding.  The basic funding formula was raised by another one-half percent, which accounts for about half of the increase.  Schools will now receive increases in that formula of two percent in each year of the biennium.  Pre-school education was also addressed, although not in the fashion proposed by the governor.  He had made pre-K or four-year old school programs one of his top priorities.  However, that was dropped in favor of early learning scholarships and an increase in a program known as “school readiness.”  Head Start also received more funding, as did Early Childhood Family Education (ECFE).
