Rotary Cogwheel | 07.02.2015

Northfield Rotary Club - Wed, 07/01/2015 - 9:19am

Today: Rachel Estrella, Classification, and Changing of the Guard (Halverson)

Birthdays: Scott Richardson (7/1), USA (July 4) and Dayna Norvold (7/5)

Next Week: State Senator Kevin Dahl (Anderson)

Last Week:

St. Olaf College student Leonard Francis Vibbi was born and raised during the Sierra Leone Civil War. He grew up surrounded by violence and fled with his single-parent family from town-to-town to escape it. By the time the war ended in 2002, after a decade of death and destruction, more than 50,000 lives were lost and 2.5 million people were displaced from their homes.

Sierra Leone Rebels forcefully recruited many children to fight in the war.

The legacy of that war was violence, Leonard noted.  It became part of everyday life in Sierra Leone. College campuses there continue to experience periods of violence as even minor disagreements can lead to physical conflicts.

Leonard believes he has an obligation to help spread the message of nonviolence in his country and has dedicated himself to that mission. He has started a GoFundMe campaign to purchase equipment to create an FM radio station, Students for Nonviolence FM (S4N-FM), which will broadcast across college campuses in Sierra Leone. FM radio is one of the most popular means of mass communication in Sierra Leone, and Leonard wants to use creativity, innovative programming, and music to help advocate for nonviolence and non-violent approaches to conflict resolution.

Leonard still needs to raise about $41,000 to cover start-up costs for the station. He has received some financial support from the Northfield community and local churches and invites anyone with interest to join him by making a gift.

His GoFundMe page can found at http://www.gofundme.com/students4nonviolen

Leonard has been long been committed to serving his native country. In the past, he has worked with several charitable groups that deliver aid to Sierra Leone, including the Save the Future Generation organization that provides help to disabled children.

Mini-Classification: Chris Weber grew up in Evanston, Ill., and attended St. Olaf College, where he met his wife of 23 years, Deanne.  Together they have a daughter Anna, 14, who loves music and recently performed with the Northfield Youth Choir at Carnegie Hall.  She also plays in the band and is on the tennis team. Son Thomas is 10 and enjoys all kinds of sports, especially basketball, tennis and golf.  He also plays the cello and alto sax.  An investment executive at Cetera Investment Services, Chris is active at St. John’s Lutheran Church and also enjoys mowing, golfing and running in his spare time, as well as cheering on the Chicago Blackhawks, Cubs, and occasionally, the Twins.

New Member Induction:  Kathy Jasnoch (Kaczmarek)

Guests:  Claire Spencer (Zweifel) and Leah Rich (M. Rich)

Scholarship Enhancement:  John Sinning

Rotary Cogwheel | 06.25.2015

Northfield Rotary Club - Tue, 06/23/2015 - 9:59am

Today: Leonard Francis Vibbi, Sierra Leone Project (Weber)

Birthdays: John Sinning (6/22) and Richard Collman (6/26).

Next Week: Rachel Estrella, Classification, and Changing of the Guard (Halverson)

Last Week:

It was destiny. When Nick Hagenmiller graduated high school, he was introduced as the future city administrator of Northfield. It didn’t take him all that long to get here.

At 30, Nick is a young and highly accomplished city administrator. In fact, he already has 20 years of management experience under his belt. Nick started a lawn service when he was 10 years old; within two years, he had 50 accounts, two employees (with drivers’ licenses) and an accountant to do payroll. He sold the business when he was 14. His next career move: Ace Hardware in St. Peter, Nick’s hometown, plus a seat on the executive board of the St. Peter Chamber of Commerce.

Nick worked at Ace for nine years, eventually balancing his college schedule with shifts at the store. That retail environment taught him accountability, customer service, soft skills and how to communicate with people.

“I liked the ‘fix it’ mentality,” Nick says. “That spirit carries forward into my life as a city administrator, balancing projects, issues, places and people – and fitting all the pieces together.”

The 1998 tornado that devastated St. Peter was an unlikely career inspiration. Nick admired how City Administrator Todd Prafke, staff and leaders put St. Peter back together. Two weeks after the storm, Nick walked unannounced into the office of Prafke, who made time for him that day – and once a week to mentor him, until Nick went off to college.

Nick’s first civic management job was Community Development Director for the city of Montevideo . . . much to his wife Vicki’s dismay. Nick helped Montevideo add jobs (no small feat during the recession), increase participation in city transit service by 70 percent, and increase public participation in local government.

In 2012, Nick became city administrator of Howard Lake, where he leveraged a $2,000 grant into $500,000 in activities to reinvigorate the downtown; started a housing and marketing program that sparked growth in housing and industrial development; increased transit use; and crafted a strategic plan for the city and right-sized its government . . . all in just two years. “It shows what can be done with unified city government,” he says.

His goals for Northfield? Improve organization for efficient services; nurture interdepartmental “mesh” among veteran department leaders and newer colleagues; enhance communication; and acknowledge the project-rich environment of Northfield.

“Finding, prioritizing and getting projects done in a meaningful manner is a challenge, and very exciting,” Nick says.

On his list: the library expansion – “one of the most rewarding projects I’ve worked on” – the skateboard park and the musical playground at Way Park, where Rotary support has been key; regional parks and trails; and Woodley Street, where City Council has “done a great job navigating an incredibly complex project.”

Nick doesn’t shy away from complex situations, or the intense citizen participation in Northfield.

“Northfield is a better, more beautiful community because of the conflict that happens here,” Nick said. “Northfield’s greatest asset is its people. Northfield’s bench is deeper and more complete than many cities’ starting lineup.”

Nick’s long-term career goal?

“My goal in Northfield is to last. I want to retire from here,” he said.

Just not too soon, okay, Nick?


Mini-Classification: Erica Zweifel described a hobby that has taken over her summers, and her screen porch. Zweifel’s family collects caterpillars from their yard – and lately, caterpillar eggs before parasitic wasps get to them – and hatches monarch butterflies in the full open space of their screen porch. Erica recently learned that this hobby is called “monarch midwifery.” Yes, that’s a thing.

Call on June 22 - Help Our Voices Be Heard!

League of Women Voters Northfield - Thu, 06/18/2015 - 11:07pm

Dear LWV members and friends,

Yes, there is something you can do about climate change!  Five of our Northfield neighbors (including several LWV members) are joining many others from Citizens' Climate Lobby next week in Washington.  They will tell our congressional representatives  that climate change is a threat to all of us, and they will ask them to put a small price on carbon.  Members of CCL  will be meeting with EVERY member of Congress.  

Our representatives in Washington think that we don't really care about climate change. Would you like to let them know that we want action?  You can do it!  All the info you need is included below in this information forwarded from Bob Ciernia, one of the participants:

YOU CAN HELP OUR VOICES BE HEARD!

How? The day before we meet with our Congressional representatives, you can call them to let them know you support what we're doing and why we are there. We are hoping you will call on Monday, June 22. What do you say? Keep it simple: "I'm calling because I am very concerned about climate change and what it is doing to our environment. Members of Citizens' Climate Lobby will be visiting your office tomorrow. I hope you will listen to their message so that our government begins doing something to address the problem. Thank you." (Feel free to add your own reasons for your concern. See this flyer for a fill-in-the-blank script.)

If Monday is not a good day for you to call, please call Thursday or Friday this week.

Here are the numbers to call:

WANT TO DO EVEN MORE? If you know someone who has made a comment about climate change, there is no better time for them to voice their concern than on June 22. Ask your friends, family, neighbors, fellow church members to call in support of what we're doing. Hey, this is CITIZENS' Climate Lobby so the more citizens who express their opinion, the better.

If friends or family live outside Minnesota, no problem, CCL chapters from around the country will be meeting with EVERY Member of Congress. There phone numbers are listed by state at the following government websites: 

Thanks! Making your voice heard feels good!
