Second Generation (Children)


2. Frank BETLACH (Bernard1) was born on May 11, 1859 in Bohemia, Czechoslovakia, died on March 27, 1921 in Leoti(WICHITA)KS at age 61, and was buried in March 1921 in Marienthal(WICHITA)KS.

General Notes: Stillwater State Prison records
September 4, 2002: The original Stillwater Prison where Frank was incarcerated burned down, arson is the probable cause.
A description of Frank:
Frank was in the Merchant Marine. He was a Lather and a Puppeteer, carving his own puppets. He spoke several languages and wrote scripts and did all the speaking parts himself for the puppet shows he would put on in the Bohemian Flats Circuit.
He was 5' 91/4" tall with dark, curly hair and dark eyes.
^^
He returned to Minneapolis in 1888 (approx) and wanted a divorce from Jenny. After that, Jenny is listed in the city directories as "widow". After serving time in Stillwater Prison, Frank ended up in Kansas and married Mary Preyer. I have a suspicion that he married a Theresa Smolik in Illinois before his marriage to Mary Preyer. I have a marriage record for this, and he possibly used his sons name, Frederic to obtain the license. I'm not sure he was divorced from Jenny at this time. I have done a request through Cook County for divorce records and so far have found nothing.

Selling the Invisible: A Field Guide to Modern Marketing by Harry Beckwith
Fred Betlach of Betlach Jeweler's in Minneapolis uses the vividness effect in the true story of a diamond ring he created for another local jeweler. According to this story, captured in Betlach's brochure, Betlach's finished ring moved the recipient so deeply that she was still crying and unable to talk several hours after she first saw it. (As further proof that vivid experiences become imprinted in people's memories, people to whom I mention Fred Betlach still ask me, "Is he the jeweler who made that woman cry?")

The Fleagle Gang - Betrayed by a Fingerprint - Written by N T Betz
Posted on October 19, 2010 by admin
Roaring 20 renegade Jake Fleagle ripped a nation with his crime spree, honed crime investigations for the prospect, and sent an innocent community in Southeastern Colorado into self imposed isolation for years to come. Recovery was extended and tedious, and yet, survival instincts run deep in this Pioneer Community locate on the Santa Fe Train along the Arkansas River. Tom Betz reveals the investigation, the event, and the community that stumped a nation.

NOTE from Brad Simon: These people spent some time at William and Helen's house.
True crime from the roaring 20s based on the murder of four men involved in a brazen daylight bank robbery in Colorado.The case hinges on a single fingerprint found on a murdered doctor's car, and the fledgling Federal Bureau of Identification and the new boss J. Edgar Hoover play a crucial role in turning the fingerprint into solid evidence used to find, arrest and convict members of the Fleagle Gang.The Fleagle Gang robbed banks and trains in Kansas, Colorado, Oregon and California of over $1 million in the 10 years they operated.Three gang members were hung at the Colorado Penitentiary a little over two years after committing the Colorado bank robbery. The fourth was trapped and shot on a train in Branson, Mo. by postal inspectors and detectives from several states.Cartoonist Al Capp used one of the gang to create his character Evil Eye Fleagle in the Lil Abner cartoon strip and Broadway show. Cartoonist Carl Barks used the Fleagle Gang as the inspiration for The Beagle Boys who have tormented Donald Duck since 1951.

Jean Klueter: Character defines spa design

The character of the spa is the single most important factor to consider when beginning a project. Is it going to be hip and edgy, sophisticated and classy, authentic and minimal, or contextual toward its surroundings? Will it have a whimsical sense of discovery, clean axial organization, or simple sustainable character that stands on its own? Having an operator on board early helps the design concept progress rapidly and provides the design team with a better understanding of the ultimate goals.

Jean Klueter

Spa design has always been ahead of its time and has actually inspired design innovations in other parts of the hotel. Specific examples include the use of natural materials, larger guest bathrooms with natural light and an attention to sustainability. Trends we have seen that appear to be lasting are wellness, personalization, incorporating nature and being authentic.

A spa should flow well for both the guest and the staff. A guest should move easily from the reception to the locker rooms to the treatment areas. Servicing of the treatment areas and locker rooms with the large demand on linens should be discreet to the public. Service should be unseen by the guest.
There should always be ample storage areas for linens and products as well as a therapist lounge. If your staff is not happy, they will leave. It's difficult to find great therapists, but if you give them the space to do their job well you will have a successful spa.

Spa users want to be in a relaxing environment and separated from the fitness users. Providing a separate entry into the fitness center from the outside is one way to reduce the congestion at the spa reception area and simultaneously protect the quiet atmosphere of the spa.

Thermal experiences for spas are important to preserving the authentic experience of the spa. They mean a return to the original meaning of spa: health through water, which includes more than just steam, sauna and whirlpool. Shower experiences, ice machines and vitality pools help give a balance of hot and cold thermal areas for the ultimate therapeutic experience, which is great for a person's circulation.

Every hotel we do has a spa, and much of our work involves projects where there could be a stand-alone spa. This provides us with a unique opportunity to design something from the inside out\emdash where form follows function. It's less complex if the spa is located within the hotel tower footprint, but there is more creative freedom if it's a separate entity.

We find it interesting that many spa designers are interior designers for that reason\emdash creating interior space within a set boundary of a hotel footprint. As a spa architect, I am afforded the opportunity to create the architecture along with the interior layout and collaborate with WATG's interiors team to create a unified spa design.

WATG brings great value to our clients because our spas are designed by architects, not just interior designers. The number one reason spas fail in the industry is because they are not planned properly. Spa design requires a great deal of space planning and a thorough understanding of interior architecture.

Our design and philosophy at WATG strongly embraces the principle of contextual design. This allows us to be inspired by certain forms and shapes from the environment that you will want to incorporate into the layout. At the Golden Door Spa at the Boulders Resort we introduced kiva-shaped rooms inspired by the native Indians at key areas like reception, the co-ed lounge and yoga room to emphasize their importance within the spa.

My design inspirations come from the simplicity of the garden, a scene that evokes calmness or the beauty of a flower. Entry processions are my passion, and my goal is decompressing the guest for an incredible spa experience. I love to plan off of axial relationships, with focal points guiding the guest to several steps along the journey.

• His obituary was published in Hulke Family Funeral Home. Scott F. Betlach, age 48 of Eau Claire, Wisconsin passed away suddenly and unexpectedly in his sleep on Friday, July 13, 2018.

Scott was born on October 7, 1969 to John and Marilyn (Westby) Betlach in Owatonna, Minnesota. Growing up, he enjoyed skateboarding, biking, football, and fun times at Lake Francis, Minnesota. He attended UW-Eau Claire, receiving a Bachelor of Arts degree, but his entrepreneurial dreams led him to his own lawn care, landscaping, and snow removal business, as well as busy landlord duties. Always active and full of energy, he also taught snowboarding at Rib Mountain, and loved living along the Chippewa River where he could cruise in his boat and relish his love of water sports. He had a talented "eye" for antiques and collectibles, often finding treasures for his son. He married Tara Christenson, spending 15 adventurous years together. They married and later welcomed son Johnny Max on August 7, 2012.

Johnny was the focus of his life, his little "sidekick" as they worked and played together. Their bond was priceless and profound. He was a phenomenal father, a role he excelled at most in life. Scott was Johnny's teacher, hero, fellow adventurer, and tender nurturer.

Scott will be dearly missed by his parents, brother Jeffrey (Cheryl) Betlach, sister Julie Freeheart, sister Mary Kay (Jon) Holzerland, Aunt Ginny Betlach, mother in law JoAnn Dolce, sister in law Tammy Christenson, nephews Chad Betlach, Jonathan Frost, Christopher Frost, Alexander Frost, niece Lindsay Betlach, and close family friend Gene Taylor. In recent years, Scott was blessed to share his life with Paula Stoudt who shared his love of the outdoors, exercise, hiking, and traveling.

Scott was preceded in death by grandparents Frank and Vera (Mayer) Betlach, grandparents Albert and Gladys (Gullickson) Westby and fury friends Jager and Brea who accompanied him everywhere.

A private family funeral service will be held with a celebration of life to be determined at a later date, as Scott would have wished.

Friends and family may offer condolences online at www.hulkefamilyfh.com.

Scott lived life to its fullest with a zest many envied and he will always be remembered.

Hulke Family Funeral Home & Cremation Service in Eau Claire is assisting the family with the arrangements.

Scott married someone Tara CHRISTENSON, daughter of Ted CHRISTENSON and JoAnn DOLCE, on June 27, 2009 in MadelineIsland(LaPOINTE)WI.

231. Verne Ewin BETLACH Jr (Verne Edwin4, Joseph John3, Bernard Edward2, Bernard1) was born on December 24, 1952.

General Notes: Divorce from Colleen, June 22, 1994?

17 years of marriage, they owned four pharmacies, a spacious home in west Bloomington, a rental duplex and his-and-hers yachts on Lake Superior. They traveled often to the Caribbean, where they soaked up the sun aboard chartered sailboats.
But a bitter three-year divorce profoundly changed the lives of Verne and Barbara Betlach and their two children. By the time a divorce decree was finally issued in 1991, most of the trappings of their affluent lifestyle were gone or in foreclosure. Their pharmacy company went bankrupt.
There was nothing left to fight over, except the kids.
It took three trips to Hennepin County Family Court and half a dozen sessions with a court mediator last year to settle the couple's argument over Verne's court-ordered visitation with his two sons, now ages 10 and 13.
Today, Verne enjoys unfettered access to the boys, who spend a weekday evening or two with him each week and sleep over at his Apple Valley home on alternating weekends. Summers and holidays are divided between the two parents.
But it's an uneasy truce, both parents are quick to acknowledge. Attorneys have told them that theirs was one of the most complicated and contentious divorce cases in Hennepin County Family Court in years. Legal fees alone have exceeded $100,000.
So it followed that when their visitation and custody agreement broke down, fixing it proved no easy or friendly task.
Barbara says the dispute erupted four years after the couple separated, when the boys became involved in activities that conflicted with the periods they were supposed to spend with their father. She has primary physical custody of the children.
"No mother in her right mind would force her children to go see their father when they're kicking and screaming because they don't want to go," she said. "Their relationship with their father had gradually broken down over three years."
Verne says it began when Barbara bought a new house in December 1993 and didn't tell him her new address or telephone number. She subsequently took the kids on a trip to Florida without telling him. He has joint legal custody of the boys, meaning that he's supposed to be informed regularly of their school progress and health and is guaranteed a voice in any major decisions directly affecting them.
He also had a court order guaranteeing him access to the boys, an order he says his ex-wife ignored or undermined for most of 1994.
The distraction of attempting to find his sons in Minnesota and Florida cost him his job as a pharmacist, Verne says. He was unemployed for several weeks before another pharmacy hired him.
By then, he had located Barbara and the boys, who had moved from Bloomington to Prior Lake. But he wasn't permitted to see his sons for the next eight months, despite many telephone calls and trips to their mother's new home.
"I continuously tried to call them. I left messages on the answering machine, but I'd get no response. I simply don't believe they didn't want to see me all that time," he said. "When we finally got together again last September, there was nothing awkward about it."
Verne says he phoned his sons one day last year to arrange to pick them up the next evening to spend time together. He arrived in Prior Lake half an hour early, only to see their mother driving them away in her car. On the front door was a note from Barbara, explaining that "per our telephone conversation," he would not be spending the evening with the kids that night.
"If she wasn't expecting me to come and pick them up, then why did she put a note on the door?" Verne asks.
On other weekends when he was supposed to have the boys, Verne says, he was told he couldn't, because they'd invited friends to spend the weekend with them at their mother's house.
After several such incidents over a two-month period, he filed a court motion in February 1994, seeking enforcement of his parental rights. Acting as his own attorney, he accused the boys' mother of interfering in his relationship with sons Jonathan and Christopher and asked a judge to jail her on a civil contempt charge for repeatedly ignoring visitation provisions contained in their divorce decree.
The case was postponed twice. Nothing happened for seven months, until September, when a judge ordered Family Court Services to perform a "visitation evaluation" and make recommendations to the court. During the interim, Verne saw Christopher only two times; he didn't see Jonathan at all.
At the time, Verne was paying $1,050 a month in child support and spousal maintenance.
Last summer, he began writing letters to public officials about what he regarded as gender bias in Minnesota's divorce laws. He especially objected to the Hennepin County attorney's office providing his ex-wife with free legal representation in the visitation dispute, and in another court motion in which he was seeking to end or reduce his ex-wife's maintenance payments.
"These weren't child-support issues we were talking about," Verne noted. "It wasn't until after the county attorney withdrew and Barbara had to hire her own lawyer that we began making progress on visitation."
Verne's second wife, Colleen, has three teenage children from a previous marriage. They live with Verne and Colleen; their father has had little contact with them since the divorce 12 years ago.
The contrast between her first and second husband isn't lost on Colleen Betlach. "Too many fathers drop out of their children's lives after a divorce," she said. "Verne wanted very much to maintain a relationship with his boys. But because of the way our system works, he had to go to court at his own expense to fight for his parental rights. That's not right."
Barbara, who did not attend the September hearing, was ordered to make a "constructive attempt" to facilitate Verne's visits with his sons and was prohibited from interfering in telephone calls between the boys and their father.
"I had always left the visitation arrangements up to Verne and the boys," she said in an interview. "I never stood in their way. When that broke down, the court wanted me to step in and help make arrangements.
"I think it's a shame when the court orders two children to be with their father when they don't want to be. For that, he Verne brought me up on a contempt charge!"
At the September hearing, the judge issued no ruling on the contempt charge or on Verne's request for legal fees and compensatory time with his sons. Another court hearing was scheduled for December, when the visitation evaluation would be complete.
During the next few months, Verne and Barbara began communicating directly for the first time in years - by letter. They agreed to attend mediation sessions offered by Hennepin County Family Court Services. Verne resumed regular telephone contact and occasional visits with his sons.
By the time the December hearing rolled around, the couple had agreed upon a specific visitation schedule. It was essentially the same agreement they had signed after separating five years earlier.
Verne agreed not to seek a ruling on the contempt charge and to drop his request for compensatory time and court fees. Although all three sanctions are available to judges when dealing with recalcitrant custodial parents, they're rarely imposed.
"I was willing to drop all of that to see if this would work," Verne said. But he warned Barbara that he'd seek custody of the boys if the visitation agreement broke down again.
On a sunny Friday afternoon a few weeks ago, Jonathan and Christopher accompanied Verne to Bayfield, Wis., to take part in a seasonal rite they had missed last spring: putting the family sailboat in Lake Superior.
Unable to find another buyer for the 30-foot craft during divorce proceedings, Verne sold it to his father for the amount he owed on it.
The boat remains a sore point with Barbara. "He was able to sell my boat. But he sold his own to his father to keep it in the family. His father doesn't even sail."
Nonetheless, she appears to be glad that the boys get to use the vessel. And she acknowledges that Verne recently has tried to accommodate the boys' after-school sports and social activities in his visitation plans, something she says he wasn't willing to do before.
"Before, he wanted them to be a part of his life, but on his terms. Now, I really believe he wants to be a part of theirs."]]
