news Thompson gets more money

GOING GAGA FOR RELAY

New school head gets $24,000 raise over McBroom BY KRISTIN HOLTZ kholtz@swpub.com

The Shakopee School District has a new superintendent and with that comes a higher price tag. The district will pay Rod Thompson $169,000 for the 2011-12 school year — $24,000 more than former Superintendent Jon McBroom’s annual salary. The three-year contract calls for 2 percent raises the second and third years — to $172,380 and $175,830, respectively. The School Board approved the contract 5-1 Monday with Tony Bon-

sante dissenting and John Canny absent. Bonsante raised concerns with contract benefits, including 25 vacation days, 30 sick days and a $700-a-month vehicle allowance. He said he felt the Rod increased salary Thompson should compensate for any fringe benefits. “I don’t get sick days. I use my vacation,” said Bonsante, who works at the Kmart Distribution Center

in Shakopee. “I understand he’s the superintendent. I would rather see him do the three years, let’s see results and then we can give this,” Bonsante added. Board Member Carla Shutrop said during the meeting she shared Bonsante’s sentiments, though she voted for the contract. She said Tuesday she recognizes Shakopee is a different place than it was 10 years ago and the district needs to be competitive with other area schools.

Monopoly for pawnshops? City Council limits the number of stores BY SHANNON FIECKE sfiecke@swpub.coml

Nick Perez walked into Pawn X-Change on Monday with a Mac computer he hoped to take a loan against. The 2007 Shakopee High School graduate rarely pawns items, but has bills to pay. “It’s better than selling it,” he concluded. But the Canterbury Road store was busy and out of cash. A couple other young people in Perez’s circle were also there, trying to get cash for their Xbox systems. They had two options — Pawn X-Change or Excel Pawn on First Avenue.

Theater group draws ‘Curtains’ It’s a first for state showings BY KRISTIN HOLTZ kholtz@swpub.com

T

he River Valley Theatre Company is putting on a play. Actually, it’s putting on a play about a group of 1950s actors putting on a play — until, of course, the leading lady winds up dead. Never a good omen on opening night. RVTC is breaking ground as the first Minnesota community theater company to perform the whodunit musical comedy “Curtains.” That’s both an opportunity and a challenge, said Director Scott Swanson. “On one hand you get to create your own thing,” he said. “On the

Miss MN Valley crowns four

PLAY  continued from page 1

The local theater company will debut its backstage murder mystery Friday at the Shakopee High School auditorium. The play runs weekends through July. By the creators of “Cabaret” and “Chicago,” the musical comedy is about a group of actors and producers attempting to put on a western version of Robin Hood in 1959 Boston. When the unpopular leading lady Jessica Cranshaw dies on opening night, the mystery begins. The struggling show attempts to rehearse as actors point fingers, lovers get crossed and more people drop dead. Theater-loving Detective Frank Cioffi attempts to solve the murders — and offer production advice — to get the show back on track in time for its next theatrical review. First produced on Broadway in 2007, “Curtains” received numerous Tony Award nominations. David Hyde Pierce won for best actor in a musical. Creating a play within a play hinges a lot on artistic presentation. To stay true to the play’s name, RVTC’s production includes a lot of fly-ins, such as backdrops ordered from two East Coast playhouses. “I think it creates a sort of magic when things come flying in,” said RVTC spokesman Daphne Siegert. It also means a lot of costume changes. Costumer Kristy Rae Limberg created approximately 100 outfits for the show — five changes each for the 20 cast members. From western wear to 1950s’ formal, Limberg of Shako pee hunted through RVTC’s stock before hitting the thrift stores. Limberg, who has a master’s degree in theater arts, constructed approximately 70 percent of the costumes, often piecing together tops, bottoms, skirts and dresses. Limberg estimated she’s spent 500 hours on costumes since early June. In addition to the sheer number, Limberg had to design costumes from two different eras. Plus, the western costumes are not from a 2011 historical perspective, but with 1959 “Bonanza” styling. It involves a lot of bright colors, cowboy hats, fripperies and Limberg’s favorite, saloon girls. Properties Managers Gary and Pat Hawley of Shakopee

have also dedicated hundreds of hours to recreate the 1950s. Their biggest projects are a boat and three rafts, used in the number, “In the Same Boat Completed.” “It’s not just an item in their hand. It’s not just an item placed somewhere. This is something they have to wear and move around in,” Pat said. Pat does a lot of conceptualizing for the props, talking to actors about how they will use the props and how to make them feasible to being on a stage. Gary is a master builder, turning out wooden guns and ’50s-era flashlights that look so real it’s hard to believe they were carved. His last project is a target in which a hole pops out with smoke. Whether creating props or costumes, the design team’s vision is about being true to 1959 theater. “This play is a play within a play. It’s not supposed to be totally perfect,” Pat Hawley said. Swanson ag reed, noting that much of what makes “Curtains” unique are the hiccups to getting “Robbin Hood ! ” ready. It’s not helped by the actors’ poor attitudes, many of

whom are being blackmailed to perform. Despite that, “Curtains” is fresh and funny and really about what musical comedy started out as, Siegert said. With big, theatrical show tunes, it’s your quintessential musical from the golden age of theater, she said.

RVTC MISSION The opportunity to premiere “Curtains” was a perfect fit for RVTC’s mission of bringing high-quality drama to the Shakopee stage, Swanson said. However, RVTC board members knew producing an unfamiliar play is a risk. While the group received a rights and royalties discount, “Curtains” requires new creative techniques the company has never done before, like the multiple fly-ins. This production is growing the actors’ and creative team’s abilities, Swanson of Shakopee said. “I think that’s what makes community theater and makes it strong,” Limberg agreed. The company also received a big boost from the community, receiving 20 business sponsorships which Swanson believes is a strong show of support for its work. RVTC cast and crew are now just hoping the community opens itself up something new. “Take a chance on this because you might be able to expand your repertoire of theater and you’ll find it very enjoyable,” Swanson said.

The smart way to go from renting to owning

T

he housing market continues to struggle. From a seller’s perspective, that makes life a lot harder. But for a buyer, the current market can mean a wider world of options and opportunities. For those who want to become owners rather than renters, it’s vitally important to make smart decisions—as the markets have shown. Many factors contribute to the real estate market’s current sluggishness, and one of them is the fact that lenders are reluctant to give loans to homebuyers. After the housing market crisis, it’s not surprising that they would be more demanding in their lending practices, but for those eager to buy, this current lending climate means that you need to present a pristine financial profi le. There is no limit to the amount of real estate browsing you can do — either in the newspaper or online — but before you get serious about purchasing a

home, take these tips into consideration.

Pay down your debt. Before you even apply for a mortgage, reduce your debt load. The smaller it is, the better for your debt-to-income ratio, which lenders use to determine how much they’ll allow you to borrow. Items like car loans, child support and alimony, credit card bills and student loans are all factors that the lender will consider. Paying down debt can have the added benefit of improving your credit, as well. Check up on your credit. Having good credit is another essential element in smart home buying: it can affect how lenders view you, and the terms of your mortgage. The better shape your credit is in, the better your potential to get the mortgage of your dreams. Every year, you’re entitled to a free credit report from one of the three major reporting agencies, like Equi-

fax. Use it as a starting point that will give you an idea of your overall credit picture. Look for areas that can be improved upon and track your progress by checking your credit again after you’ve put in some work to bring it up.

Make the biggest down payment possible. The era of zero-down is over, and for good reason. A down payment, and a sizeable one, can help ease the strain of a mortgage in coming years. A minimum of 20 percent down is a good idea, and if you can do more than that, so much the better. If you don’t think you can afford a down payment of 20 percent or more on a house you’re considering, it might be time to shop around for a less expensive home that is more budget friendly.

Be an informed buyer. There is a seemingly endless list of things to know about buying a home, and the faster you want to buy, the faster you’ll need to learn it all. One of the best

things you can do is take a first-time homebuyer class offered by a reputable organization; some cities even offer them for free. Be sure you know the ins and outs of items like closing costs, ad-

justable rate versus fi xed rate mortgages, how your credit report affects mortgage rates and the documentation you’ll need to get a mortgage. The more you know, the better equipped you’ll be to make

smart decisions that will make you a happy homeowner for years to come. Source: ARA Content

Shutdown halts area highway projects Two major highway projects in the area have been on hiatus since the July 1 state shutdown. Construction of the Highway 13/County Road 101 intersection improvement project in Savage and the Highway 169/Interstate Highway 494 interchange reconstruction project in Eden Prairie have been halted. The completion target for the I-494/Highway 169 project — end of 2012 — on the $125 million project could be threatened if the shutdown drags on. The I-496/169 project shut down July 1. The project employs 120 with the general contractor and between 50 and 70 workers through subcontractors, said Mark Olsen, the vice president of design build at Edward Kraemer and Sons, one of the contractors for the project. Olsen declined to provide an estimate on the daily costs of the shutdown on the project. If the shutdown is extended for any length of time, it can impact their completion date. The project is 30 to 35 percent completed, he said. Before the shutdown, they were on target to fi nish on time by the end of 2012. When asked how long it would take to be a major detriment to the project, he said not much more than a week, “our schedule is pretty tight.” Ames Construction, hired for the $19 million 13/101 project, did not respond to a media request. “It’s not only possible, but highly probable that the state will have to pay millions in compensation for damages,” said state Rep. Michael Beard, R-Shakopee, the House Transportation Committee chairman, who has been meeting with contractors around the sate. “Contractors have given us amazing bids over the last few years. One reason we got 494/169 is because other projects came so far under estimate. The progress we’ve made is being twittered away.” Beard was scheduled to appear before Ramsey County Chief Judge Kathleen Gearin on Wednesday to argue that current road projects should be resumed for safety reasons and to protect public infrastructure. “It’s wasting a lot of time and money, and is inconveniencing the public and putting them at risk,” he said. Leah Shaffer and Shannon Fiecke

Lawmakers take pay during shutdown Three area state legislators are among 52 of the 66 members of the Senate and 87 of the 135 members of the House who continue to receive paychecks during the state government shutdown. After Gov. Mark Dayton announced that he would not accept pay during the state government shutdown, 14 senators and 48 representatives followed suit. Senators still being paid include Claire Robling, R-Jordan. Representatives include Michael Beard, R-Shakopee, and Mark Buesgens, R-Jordan. “There’s other work I could be doing that I can’t because I’ve been focused on legislative work,” explained Robling from the state capital on Tuesday. “I’ve been down here almost every day.” The $31,140 legislative salary is paid throughout the year, much like teachers, Robling said. Normally, Robling, the Senate Finance Committee chair, helps her husband Tony with farming during the summer, so he’s had to hire relatives to take her place. She said her stomach has been in knots about the budget impasse. Beard said he’s busy working behind-the-scenes on several matters, including a judicial appeal to allow road construction to restart. “I’m running all over the state and metro area,” he said. Beard said people want to get back to work. “The only way to go back to work is for the governor to call a special session. Only he can call it, and he’s refusing.” Buesgens couldn’t be reached for comment. Shannon Fiecke

Rail work could cause snarls next week Motorists who use Second Avenue as a reliever for the First Avenue reconstruction project may have to adjust their detour even more next week. Union Pacific Railroad will be closing sections of Second Avenue on Monday and Tuesday as it repairs railroad track and moves heavy machinery. Intersections will remain open, but traffic will not have enough room to move freely down Second Avenue. Both directions of Second Avenue will close between Apgar and Naumkeag streets as the railroad puts in new railroad ties. Use of Second Avenue will be on a vehicle-by-vehicle basis. Flag people will help guide motorists to their destination. While this project is under way, the railroad asks motorists to drive safely and slowly through the construction zones. The paving and restriping of the downtown area is expected to be complete this week, ahead of railroad work. Shannon Fiecke

Filing period moved up for city election If you were planning to run for city office this year, you might want to check your calendar to make sure you have the right deadline for the fi ling period. The city has three positions on the Nov. 8 ballot this fall: Mayor (two-year term) and two city councilor seats (four-year terms). Residents can fi le for election from Aug. 2 to 16 at Shakopee City Hall, 129 Holmes St. S. between the hours of 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. The fi ling fee is $5. For more information, call (952) 233-9315. Originally, the filing period was to be later in August; however, the governor signed legislation in late May that moved up the fi ling dates. Unfortunately, this change occurred at the same time that the city published the “original” fi ling dates in the summer issue of the Hometown Messenger. Disregard the fi ling dates in that publication. To run for mayor or city councilor, a resident must be a U.S. citizen, have lived in the city at least 30 days prior to the election and be at least 21 years old upon assuming office.

Kermes hired as interim head of educational co-op BY KRISTIN HOLTZ kholtz@swpub.com

The Carver-Scott Educational Cooperative (CSEC) in Chaska will have a familiar face taking over as executive director. Darren Kermes, director of special education for the cooperative, was hired as interim director to replace retiring executive director Randy Zitterkopf. Kermes, 45, of Lakeville, is also the executive director of the Minnesota River Valley Special Education Cooperative (MRVSEC) in Jordan. “I’ve very excited to continue to work with MRVSEC and now work more closely with Carver-Scott,” Kermes said. T he CSEC boa rd i nterviewed three candidates for the one-year interim position. Zitterkopf, who retired June 30, had been with the school district three years. CSEC and MRVSEC have been discussing a merger for more than a year, according to Carver-Scott Board Chair Mary Romansky. They hired John Messelt, a former Minnesota superintendent, to study the benefits of merging the two organizations. Boa rd members li ked Ker me s’ f a m i l i a r it y a nd knowledge of Carver-Scott. “With the merger, he has the knowledge of both CarverScott and MRVSEC,” Romansky said. In addition to special-education services, CSEC offers alternative learning centers, career/technical education, adult basic education, care and treatment and online learning to students from the Belle Plaine, Chaska, Jordan, New Prague, Norwood Young America, Prior Lake-Savage, Shakopee, Waconia and Watertown-Mayer school districts. MRVSEC, a special-edu-

cation cooperative that ser ves si x Scott Countyarea school districts, has seen its member districts’ e n r ol l m e nt grow and thus contract Darren fewer servicKermes es from the special education cooperative, Romansky said. “What those districts needed 30 years ago is very different in a lot of ways than what they need today,” Kermes said. All MRVSEC schools — with the exception of Montgomery-Lonsdale School District which just voted to consolidate with Le Center — are already CSEC members. CSEC and MRVSEC already share offices as well as some staff. “A part of it has to do with just being more efficient in terms of economics, but it also has a lot to do with the effectiveness of programs and what we can collaboratively provide for our clientele and students,” Zitterkopf told the Jordan Independent last fall. Kermes believes there’s great potential in terms of programming and freeing up economic resources for member school districts. “I think if we can serve kids as well or better and do it more cost effectively, that is our underlying goal,” he said. MRVSEC has approximately 100 employees and 150 students attending its programs, t hough it ser ves more i n home districts. Carver-Scott is about twice as large since it offers additional alternative programs, Kermes said. Kermes started as interim executive director at MRVSEC in 2006. He has been CSEC’s special education director one year.

commentary EDITORIAL

Canterbury gets a raw deal during shutdown As frustrating as the state government shutdown is for everyone, the effects perhaps hit hardest with a publicly owned business right here in Shakopee. Canterbury Park and its Card Casino were forced to close because state oversight of their operations was suspended wit h t he Ju ly 1 shutdown. If logic were applied to the situation, horse racing would be allowed to continue. Because it has not, some 1,100 people are out of work at Canterbury, along with hundreds of others who care for the horses at the racetrack. Even worse, the situation may be permanent for the rest of the racing season as horsemen begin to pull out of Canterbury and head to other tracks as close as Iowa, where horse racing purses are beefed up through slot machine revenue. Eight days of racing have been canceled due to the shutdown, including this past weekend and the lucrative July 4 weekend. Canterbury President Randy Sampson estimated that the loss of the four-day holiday weekend alone cost Canterbury $1.3 million in revenue. The worst part is, this was unnecessary. The Minnesota Racing Commission, which oversees the horse business in Shakopee as well as Running Aces harness track in Columbus, is a state agency. That’s why it needed to close. But the commission is not funded by state funds, but rather from regulatory fees paid by the tracks. Canterbury had paid its fees through the month of July. So why can’t it operate? Good question. The horsemen who loyally popu-

late Canterbury each summer do so despite the fact that the Shakopee track’s purses lag behind those at other tracks in places as close as Iowa and Illinois. Despite the opportunity to make more money, horsemen like Canterbury and choose to come here anyway. But they cannot afford to stay here without an opportunity to make money. On July 1, Canterbury filed a petition asking the court to allow the racing commission to remain in operation as it is fully funded by the industry, requires no general fund dollars, and has received payment for all expected July expenses. The following day, Ramsey County District Court Judge Kathleen Gearin denied that request. On Wednesday last week, attorneys representing Canterbury and Running Aces provided additional information to the court regarding funding of the racing commission and asked Gearin to reconsider. In a letter to the judge, the attorneys said that the tracks seek to clarify facts regarding funding for the racing commission that place the commission on the same footing as the Minnesota Zoo, which was permitted to reopen. We understand Gearin’s overwhelming responsibility in sifting through hundreds of state agencies and functions in determining what are considered core government services. But a quick glance at the race tracks’ situation, the threat to a publically owned racing company, the real threat of the tracks’ closing for the year at a loss in the millions, and the loss of jobs for perhaps more than 2,000 people, should be enough for her to reconsider.

Flexibility needed by everyone on impasse BY SEN. CLAIRE ROBLING

I worked hard to try to reach a compromise and prevent a state government shutdown, and I am disappointed that it happened and apologetic to everyone who is adversely affected. I absolutely did not want a government shutdown because I believe it is bad for our fragile Minnesota economy, not to mention the direct impact it has on state employees and those who have contracts with the state or depend upon some service from the state to continue to operate, such as Canterbury Park. I do wish Gov. Mark Dayton would have conceded to the request of Republican legislators to call us back into special session at the end of June in order to pass a “lightson” bill to keep state government running at current levels until a full budget agreement could be reached. We could have put a limit of one week or 10 days into the resolution so everyone would have kept working hard toward a compromise. We were close to agreements on many of the budget bills. In fact, if the governor didn’t want to use a lights-on bill, I believe we could have closed up six of the nine major outstanding budget bills very quickly, and we would have been willing to do that if he would have agreed. If we could have passed those, many workers could have stayed on the job and services would have continued for many state residents. The budgets in the environment bill (funding game, fish, parks and the Pollution Control Agency, with the Department of Commerce also rolled into that bill), the E-12 education bill, transportation (which could have kept all the road construction projects going and the rest stops open), higher education, jobs and judiciary and public safety bills were either completely or almost (a few million dollars) agreed upon. Intense and productive

ROBLING GUEST COMMENTARY

negotiations took place a couple of weeks ago on the health and human services (HHS) bill, our largest growth area and the bill that always causes the most angst as a result. The committee chairs and the commissioner of HHS were making real progress and there was agreement that some additional one-time money would be provided for this budget if reforms that would slow future growth in this area were also included in the bill. The tax bill and state government bill were also still being discussed. However, Gov. Dayton refused to call us back for a special session, something only the governor could do after he vetoed all of the bills we passed which did provide for a balanced budget (and additional spending over current levels in K-12 and HHS) and would have kept everything running if he had signed them in May. Gov. Dayton said he would only call us back to pass a continuing resolution if we had agreement in all budget areas. Prior to the shutdown in 2005, Gov. Pawlenty encouraged us to pass bills, which he signed, as agreements were reached in each budget area. That resulted in a much more limited shutdown than is being experienced this time. It is the belief of many of my colleagues, and I agree, that Gov.

Political posturing by GOP, governor The government shutdown is political posturing of the two-party system. The shutdown will affect Minnesotans. That is wrong! I believe the shutdown is nothing but games by Gov. Dayton and the GOP to see who can hold out from compromise. It will be interesting to see how long the two parties can be childish at the expense of Minnesotans.

of mine here, I can certainly find more hospitable tax climates a few miles away. But since I’m not the rich millionaire, why should I care? Because businesses that move to the Dakotas or anywhere else take jobs from our great state — permanently. Gov. Dayton, you can close us down for days or weeks now, but unwise tax policies will cause a slow and catastrophic economic shutdown that will hurt for years to come.

Unwise tax policies hurting the state Shut down the state now or shut it down later — or maybe we should ask, have you visited Moorhead recently? A trip up Interstate Highway 94 to Moorhead would benefit any legislator or governor while they mull over the current state shutdown. A visit to any of our state’s border towns highlights the difference between what is happening to businesses in Minnesota and our neighboring states with lower taxes. Moorhead is nice, but the contrast between the vibrant business [read “job”] growth on the Fargo side of the border and our own side is shocking after years of DFL legislative control. Even little Lyle on Highway 218 stands in the shadow of a giant new ethanol plant built just 25 feet onto the Iowa side of the border. The choice of where to build or expand a business is often as simple as asking where I can keep more of my money. If Gov. Dayton wants to take more

Congressman, dental office come through When my son deployed to Iraq I begged him not to use the military dentist! We have a lot of time and money invested in his beautiful smile and he was not to let them “practice” on it! This is because his father had used the military dentist during his Vietnam tour. He went and complained of a toothache. They pulled two teeth and told him to come back tomorrow. When he arrived the next day they pulled two more teeth and told him to come back the next day. He decided going back was not a good idea. My son completed his tour and our prayers were answered when he returned with everything intact. Teeth included. Over the next few years he completed school and secured a job with the Department of Defense as a mechanic. About nine months ago he had an accident at work. A large wrench flew back, hit him in the face, split open his lip and knocked out three teeth. His beautiful smile gone. Once the initial medical issues were taken care of, finding the teeth, stopping

the bleeding, stitching up the lip and reinserting two teeth, he still had a hole in his smile from the tooth that could not be replaced. He was told that an implant would be needed. Being somewhat overprotective, I suggested that he see our family dentist that he’s had since childhood, Dr. David Eckart. I wanted to ensure he got his beautiful smile back and I was confident Dr. Eckart would be the person for the job. My son went to Dr. Eckart’s office, explained the workers’ comp issue and mentioned that everything should be approved before they started the work. Dr. Eckart’s dedicated staff member, Lisa Malecha, started the paperwork. Lisa submitted the forms. Over the next few months the insurance company returned them for various reasons. Each time requesting some minor correction. Lisa made the correction and resubmitted. It was returned a nd resubmit ted a nd retu r ned and resubmitted approximately 15 times. Lisa was not going to give up! Lisa explained that the insurance company continued to deny the work and the “closing date” was approaching, at which time the file would be closed and he would not be eligible to have the work completed. Lisa contacted Congressman John Kline’s office and explained the situation. Within days the issue was resolved and the work began. If not for Lisa’s thoroughness, dedication and persistence, my son would have lost his benefits for his dental implant. I want to thank Lisa, Dr. Eckart and his staff and the staff at Congressman’s Kline’s office for being who they are, for doing what they do and for doing it so well!!

Get a read on various views For my friends, family members and the 36 faithful readers of this column it will come as no surprise when I tell you that occasionally I will have an opinion on a matter. Even though I want to believe that my opinions are offered only after reasoned and thoughtful consideration, I know that is not always the case. When a person is wrong enough times he begins to accept it (which is not the same as expecting it). The person who thinks he is never wrong will never accept being wrong. That person can never know what they don’t know. The things I don’t know could fill volumes — so I read. I was reading the July 2 edition of World Magazine when I flipped the page to Janie B. Cheaney’s column, “Becoming Readers.” Since this was on Page 24 of a magazine composed largely of words, it seemed that the author was after more than just inspiring people to read. She wrote:

Jerry

KUCERA COMMUNITY COLUMNIST

“I remember the moment when I became a reader. I always liked to read, but that’s not the same thing. What made a reader of me was a novel I received through a children’s book club (‘The Silver Sword’ by Ian Serraillier) … the story itself had reached out and grabbed my hand. “Words arranged in sentences, built into a narrative, made me bigger. It’s a bit like creation

itself: light spoken into being, coalescing into atoms, combining into molecules, becoming elements. Writing imitates creation by ‘speaking’ ideas into being.” According to Cheaney, readers share in the creative experience. “ … they interact with the book in a conversation that alters perception, expands sympathy, provokes anger, or refines argument. “Not everybody is a reader, in this sense. C.S. Lewis, in “An Experiment in Criticism,” made the claim that even in a highly literate society, readers (those who get something from books that they get nowhere else) are the minority. Most people read for two reasons: entertainment and information. Both needs are legitimate, but can be met in other ways, especially today. The third reason I would call enlightenment — letting the ideas created by written language challenge or change us.”

St. Mark’s Catholic Church in Shakopee joined an existing parish cluster of St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Shakopee and St. Mary of the Purification in Marystown July 1. The Rev. Peter Wittman will pastor the tri-parish cluster. Wittman, who has served the two St. Mary’s churches three years, was an associate pastor at St. Mark’s from 1978 to 1984.

St. Mark’s is Shakopee’s largest Catholic parish with approximately 1,600 families. St. Mary’s has approximately 820 families while St. Mary of the Purification has 280 families.

July’s Charity – Southwest Metro Animal Rescue Southwest Metro Animal Rescue and Adoption Society is a non-profit organization committed to the rescue of abandoned, abused and stray domestic animals. We believe the animalhuman bond is strengthened through education of the public on the humane treatment of animals, pet population control and support for animal protection laws. We are an all-volunteer non-profit organization. We do not have any paid staff and receive no government funding. Our founding members have over 35 years combined experience in the animal rescue field. We have established federal tax-exempt status as a 501 (c) (3) charitable organization. Southwest Metro Animal Rescue does not operate a shelter building, and is a volunteer foster home-based organization that hosts regularly scheduled monthly Pet Adoption Days. Our procedure is to evaluate the animal, provide necessary medical care (including spay/neuter), place in a caring foster home, and finally find a suitable forever home for each pet. We rely on donations of food and supplies to care for the pets. We maintain a no-kill policy except in cases when euthanasia is deemed the only viable, reasonable and humane option. www.swmetroanimalrescue.org

Jeans Day is celebrated the last Friday of each month! If your organization is interested in participating, please contact Jennifer Sorenson at 952-345-6477 or jsorenson@swpub.com

Effective July 1, 2011, new legislation passed by Governor Tim Pawlenty strengthens Minnesota DWI laws. Governor Pawlenty’s new legislation affects DWI offenders with certain aggravating factors. Currently Minnesota law states that a first time DWI offender with an alcohol-concentration of .20 or more is charged with a gross misdemeanor and loses their license for 180 days. The new legislation lowers the alcohol concentration to .16 or more which is twice the legal limit (.08). The license revocation period is extended to one year. The same is true for a second time DWI offender regardless of their alcohol concentration, their license will be revoked for one year as opposed to 180 days. Under the new legislation a DWI offender that refuses to submit to a chemical test will lose their license for a period of two years as opposed to the current penalty of one year. The two year revocation period also applies to a second time DWI offender with an alcohol concentration of .16 or more. A person charged with their third DWI in ten years will lose their license for three years which is a leap from the current penalty of a one year cancellation of the driver’s license. Minnesota DWI penalties are harsh and are only going to get more severe. If convicted, a DWI offender could face large fines and jail time. For over 10 years, Minnesota law makers have successfully fought to strengthen the penalties for DWI offenders. It goes without saying that a DWI charge is something that should be taken seriously and should be handled by consulting with an experienced Minnesota DWI Attorney.

PAWNSHOPS

July 14, 2011 | Page 7

Pawn shop limitations in other cities

 continued from page 1

Burnsville: No closer than one mile from another pawnshop

These are the only pawnshops that have been allowed to operate in Shakopee, thanks to a 1996 state law that barred pawnshops within 10 driving miles of a casino. Shakopee’s stores were grandfathered in since both licenses were issued in 1994. With the state Legislature rescinding that statute this spring, pawnshops could fi nally move into town, which has more than doubled in size since the original law was passed. The Shakopee City Council last week put an end to that possibility, approving new regulations that will likely mean no new pawn licenses for at least eight more years. And if the current pawnbrokers buy additional licenses that do become available ($2,500 a pop), they will have a permanent monopoly within city limits. T he new ordi na nce, ap proved 4-1, limits pawn stores to one per 15,000 residents. The next license won’t become available until the city’s population hits 45,000, which will occur in 2020, according to estimates. The council also set a minimum distance between pawnshops at 1.5 miles. This leaves the southern, eastern and possibly western section of Shakopee (if township land is annexed) open in the future, said city Community Development Director Michael Leek. Police Chief Jeff Tate said he doesn’t have enough personnel to handle additional pawnshops. He said investigators spend hours each week reviewing the logs of pawned items. “O u r work lo ad w i l l i ncrease,” he said. “We’re not in the position right now to ask for additional staffi ng.” The restrictions are intended to “lessen any risk of illegal activities that might be associated with them,” according to Leek’s staff memo. Councilor Matt Lehman, the sole opponent, balked at that reasoning. “If we have the same attitude with DWIs, we should have no bars and liquor stores in town,” he said. Tate said police make more than 100 confiscations annually from the two pawnshops, the majority stolen items brought

into the city from other communities. “Paw nshops provide op portunity,” Tate said. “We’re located close to several gaming locations. It’s very easy for someone who has stolen something to get cash quickly.” But pawnshops think it’s unfair for them to be targeted when thieves sell stolen merchandise elsewhere and people shoplift regularly. They also pay fees others don’t to the city.

ORDINANCE SUPPORT A lt hou g h t he t wo paw n stores in Shakopee support the ordinance restrictions, neither is happy with the connotation that their business breeds criminal activity. Quite the contrary, they say pawnshops are the last place a smart criminal would want to go. And for the ones that still do, pawnshops give cops the tools to catch the bad guys. “Pawn stores are the most highly regulated secondhand dealers around,” said Mark Pearson, owner of Excel Pawn and Jewelry. Customers are videotaped, thei r driver’s licenses are swiped and they sign a form confi rming they own the item being pawned. All items are entered into a searchable statewide database. “Someone would have to be a moron to sell or pawn a stolen item in our store,” said Pawn X-Change owner Mark Smith of Credit River Township, who also is an attorney. When they do, pawnshops give police the smoking gun. “Prosecutors love us.” The reality is, criminals still utilize the shops, said Tate. Tate said police have a good relationship with both city stores and the state database is a “wonderful tool.” He said

nel Committee Chair Kathy Busch, said the vacation days were what Thompson was getting in his former district, St. Anthony/New Brighton Public Schools. The $700 vehicle allowance is also the going rate, he said. Busch noted that superintendents attend a lot of regional and metro meetings. McBroom had a $600 a month allowance in his contract. Board Member Mary Romansky said the board knew it was going to have “sticker shock” after getting by for many years under the area salary average with McBroom. A comparison of area districts shows a range between $12 8,0 0 0 and $19 0,0 0 0. The Farmington School District also agreed to a contract with its new superintendent Jay Haugen Monday at $180,000. Thompson was a finalist for the Farmington job. The 2011-12 salary is actually a reduction in what Thompson would have been making in St. Anthony. Thompson was set to make $178,804 next year, according to an addendum in his contract, posted on St. Anthony’s district website. He made $168,683 in 2010-11. The superintendent contract follows a “pay as you go” model in which Thompson can cash out up to 10 unused vacation days and 10 sick days at the end of the year to his 403(b) plan. The rest are forfeited. This eliminates any sever-

The board approved a consulting contract with McBroom to continue as the district’s chief until Thompson is ready to take over. The contract, which went into ef fect Monday, has no set end date but will go likely through mid-August, Schneider said. Compensation will continue at the rate earned under his last contract.

Shakopee will also reimburse Thompson up to $7,000 in moving expenses as he intends to move from St. Anthony to Shakopee over the course of the school year, Schneider said. Aug. 1 will be Thompson’s fi rst official day in the district, though he will spend some time meeting district staff, administrators and students before then. He also hopes to set up coffee meetings with the community. “I’m looking forward to doing a lot of listening from people about all the great things about Shakopee,” Thompson said Tuesday. “I’m just really excited and eager to meet everyone.”

and Once Upon a Child, among others, don’t have to record who walks in the doors or what items the store takes in. Pawn shops pay the city a $1.50 fee per item, whether it is a cheap DVD or expensive TV. The APS system keeps 60 cents of this. In the first six months of 2011, there were 8,537 pawn transactions in Shakopee. Tate said the fees fund the Automated Pawn System, but don’t come close to covering officers’ time. Cities charge anywhere from $1 to $3 per transaction. In 2010, Burnsville did away with its $ 2.50 fee. Now, the city picks up the charge for all goods reported to the state system.

them their precious metals and none of those businesses has any sort of reporting requirements or holding periods,” said Pearson in an e-mail. “Plus, you have websites like Craigslist and eBay where it’s nearly impossible for law enforcement to track stolen property.” At the push of Pawn America, the city of Burnsville last year limited what must be reported to the statewide database and is requiring all secondhand retailers to report such items, including jewelry, computer equipment and fi rearms. Chuck A r mst rong, community affairs specialist, said Pawn America just wants fair and equitable treatment. But in Shakopee, only the pawn shops must report all transactions to the Automated Pawn System. GameStop, High Score Video

the department runs a lot of checks for other cities, and struggles to fi nd time to monitor transactions from just the present stores. “I have nothing against the two that currently operate, but they are labor-intensive,” he said. “I wish we could spend more time on [the pawnshop database].” Pearson said only “0.0058” percent of items pawned at his store last year were confiscated by police as possibly stolen — the highest percent he’s had in more than 10 years. Nationally, less than onetenth of 1 percent of pawned items are stolen, said Emmett Murphy, with the National Pawn Brokers Association. “Perhaps 20 years ago pawnshops were a place that would be more prone to criminal activity, but that’s not the case any longer,” he said. “Pawn stores are really a place where people who need short-term credit go to get them through to their next paycheck.” Tate said the more time his detectives spend reviewing pawn records, the higher the rate of confiscation. Pearson let the mayor know about the state law change as a courtesy, but neither pawnshop was involved in the crafting of the ordinance. The state law change opened Scott County to a large influx of pawn stores, Pearson explained, and he welcomes the new ordinance. “We have a good relationship with the city, we have been doing business there for over 20 years and our staff knows most of the customers by their fi rst name, so we are a real hometown business,” he said. Smith is glad Shakopee decided to limit the amount of pawnshops, given that he purchased his store 12 years ago

under the protection of the former state law. He believes if a city limits the number of a given type of business, it helps ensure the success of those that do open. For instance, if the city of Bloomington didn’t limit the number of pawn stores, he said he wouldn’t have invested more than a $1 million into his pawnshop there. He views such limitations as a zoning technique, and thinks communities prefer not to have a pawnshop, liquor store or discount store “on every corner.”

I learned how to read from my mother, but Jon Logelin taught me how to read to learn. Mr. Logelin was one of my high school English teachers. He was passionate about reading, especially books written by Kurt Vonnegut. In spite of my being an unwilling and unruly student, Mr. Logelin taught me to listen for the author’s voice as I read. By doing this I learned to appreciate another’s perspective. Although Mr. Logelin and Ms. Cheaney communicated the importance of becoming a reader of books, I would suggest that news and political commentary be read as well. We all have a responsibility to learn as much as we can about current events and our political climate. Read and listen to other points of view besides your own. You might learn that you may be

wrong, or hopefully you will understand another’s perspective better. There is no honor in reading or listening to only that which you agree with. If your only source of news and information is one-sided you are only seeing half of the coin. If you read Ann Coulter, read Maureen Dowd as well. Thomas Friedman and Charles Krauthammer will give you opposing views, as will Paul Krugman and George Will. My daughter Jennifer is a kindergarten teacher. She spends much of her school day reading to her students and teaching them to read. She gave me a shirt with one word on the front: Read. I think that is a marvelous suggestion. Of course, that’s just my opinion. Jerry Kucera of Sand Creek Township owns a Shakopee insurance agency and is a Valley News community columnist.

Dayton and DFL legislators planned to make this shutdown as painful as possible in order to force the Republican majority to his position quicker. That strategy not only puts pressure on legislators, but it negatively affects thousands of others who are caught in our dispute, such as Canterbury Park, which is unfairly shuttered because of this shutdown. I think that’s shameful. Although I support cutting projected growth to balance the budget, I’m willing to support some additional revenue, including a racino, to get a compromise. I do not support increasing income or sales tax rates because I believe that can have a negative impact on economic development, and we can’t afford to hamper that during an economic recession when we need job creation. Minnesota is already ranked 50th in the nation for business tax climate by the Small Business and Entrepreneurship Council, with only the District of Columbia being worse. We need to make the climate in Minnesota better for business if we want to grow our economy and get our folks back to work. There are case studies showing that a tax increase on high-income individuals, like the one proposed by Gov. Dayton, will drive those that pay that tax out of the state. For example, when Maryland increased taxes on the wealthy, the state lost one-third of those taxpayers in one year. Other than directly increasing tax rates, there are a variety of ways to increase revenue to cover some additional expenditures the governor is demanding. However, there was not consensus on these items. I left the Capitol at midnight June 30 very disheartened that no compromise was reached. Although I know many of my conservative friends do not like the idea of raising any additional revenue (I’ve read your e-mails), I don’t believe there will ever be an agreement reached with the governor if there isn’t some level of additional funding

available. I will not, however, concede to the $1.8 billion he has requested. I know from working on all of the budgets that we do not need that amount of growth. I will continue to work to try to bring sensible and fiscally prudent ideas to the table to close the divide and bring about compromise. I want our state to operate efficiently, but I do not believe it should provide services that cost taxpayers so much that they can’t take care of their own families or profitably operate businesses and provide employment. We really must work to live within our means. When we started the legislative session in January, we faced an overwhelming $6.2 billion deficit. That was reduced to a $5 billion deficit in the February forecast because of forecasted economic growth. That additional revenue also allowed the Republicancontrolled Legislature to develop a budget that spends $34.2 billion – the largest general fund budget in the state’s history and the same amount that the state spent in the 2010-11 biennium which ended June 30 (when federal stimulus funds and money made available through the K-12 education shift are included). Our 2010-11 general fund was only $30 billion without that revenue, so you can see that our economy is projected to grow nicely, but if we keep all of our programs the same, we will be $5 billion short because the budget is projected to grow to $39 billion. That is why cuts and reforms must be a prominent part of these bills. We truly must slow the rapid growth of state government spending. Obviously, not all positions can prevail, but compromise does require both sides to give up things they really want and accept a few things they don’t want. No one will be completely happy, but with my 15 years of experience in politics, I know that’s what it takes to get a deal, and for the sake of the people in Minnesota, a deal must be made. Sen. Claire Robling, a Republican from Jordan, represents District 35, which includes Shakopee.

Late in 2008, Curator Theresa Norman and others began organizing boxed textiles, which includes clothing, hats, and purses. Spending about three hours per week, they inventoried each box, updated information in the society’s collections database, entered artifacts that were not previously catalogued and added photographs. Every week, each year from the beginning of September through early June, Shirley sewed permanent numbers into the textiles, and packed them into acid-free boxes using special tissue paper. She also sewed slip covers for wedding and festival dresses too big to box or hang in a cabinet. They also reorganized the collection storage area. Now all boxed textiles are in one central area –organized, labeled, and photographed, with their per-

With this work completed, the Society is able to use PastPerfect to search for any of the more than 600 boxed textile artifacts and know exactly where it is located, what it looks like and special details about each item. Eventually this information will be uploaded to the Society’s website so visitors may conduct a more thorough search.

I Kari Jondro, Gina LoP r e sto, Jen S cher er a nd Jayme Jones of Prior Lake and Addeline Theise of Shakopee recently completed their Girl Scout Gold Award project to earn the highest Girl Scout award. Jones and Theise are both musicians and wanted to encourage children to enjoy different types of music. For their Girl Scout Gold Award project, they worked with the Rotary Club to develop Lil’ Louie’s Music Camp, a part of the Lakefront Jazz and Blues Festival. Activities for the more than 300 kids included crafts, games, dancing, live music by the Prior Lake Middle School

and high school bands, blues painting, and an instrument petting zoo. Jondro and LoPresto developed a series of Parents’ Night Out events at St. Michaels Church in Prior Lake. Each Parents’ Night Out had a different theme, such as Christmas, Winter Olympics, and Valentines Day, and the children’s activities included singing, crafts, games, relays, movies, and a carnival. For her project, Scherer developed and delivered a weeklong program for Kinder Care teaching children how to stay safe. She delivered programming on everything from staying safe at home, staying safe while biking, and staying safe on the school bus. Kids watched presentations, played games, and saw a self defense demonstration from a local Karate group. River Valley Girl Scouts collectively contributed more than 9,000 hours on Girl Scout Gold Award projects. The 136 Gold Award recipients were honored during springtime ceremonies in Owatonna and Minneapolis. River Valleys consistently sees about 10 percent of the council’s eligible Girl Scouts achieve their Girl Scout Gold Award— twice the national Girl Scouts of the USA aver-age.

SHAKOPEE AMERICAN LEGION

Bats stay hot for Post No. 2 Legion playoffs begin next week BY TODD ABELN tabeln@swpub.com

With the reg ular season wrapping up, the Shakopee A merican L egion baseba l l team is getting ready for the playoffs. Post No. 2 enters the final week of the season just a half game out of fi rst. The team moved that close to the top spot after going 2-1 over the weekend and going 7-1 in its last eight games. Shakopee’s lone loss came in the first game of a doubleheader on Saturday in Hutchinson. It bounced back from that loss with a big blowout victory. Post No. 2 lost 7-4 to Hutchinson in the first game of the doubleheader. “We just didn’t get the big hit when we needed it,” head coach Ryan Niedfeldt said. “It was kind of frustrating.” Shakopee stranded 10 runners in the game and had two leads early in the game. It led 2-0 after the top of the

fi rst inning, when Jordan Gunhus started the game off with a home run. Hutchinson tied it at 2-2 in the bottom of the fi rst only to see Shakopee score two more times in the second. The 4-2 lead didn’t last long as Hutchinson scored four times in the third to grab a 6-4 lead and never looked back. With that frustrating loss behind them, Shakopee took out its frustrations on Hutchinson in the second game. Post No. 2 pounded Hutchinson 18-8 to split the doubleheader. “The kids had a chip on their shoulders after the fi rst game,” Niedfeldt said. Shakopee scored five runs in the fi rst inning and never looked back on its way to the 10-run win. Scoring 18 runs means there were a lot of stars for Shakopee but one player stood out: Nick Larsen. Larsen, making his American Legion debut, went 3-for-4 with a home run, two doubles and six RBIs. His home run was an insidethe-park home run in the fi rst inning.

“He played real ly wel l,” Niedfeldt said. In all, Shakopee hit three home runs in the game. Scott Bode and Zak Hoffman combined to go 8-for-9 with two home runs and eight RBIs. Bode was 5 -for-5 and was a double away from the cycle. Nick Mendez added three hits and Zach Graff, Andrew Boyce and Gunhus had two hits each. The weekend began with Shakopee beating St. Peter 13-0 last Thursday in St. Peter. Willie Dellwo got the win by pitching four shutout innings. Mendez had five RBIs in the win. The big hit came when he delivered a bases-clearing double. “We scored early and often,” Niedfeldt said. “Our hot bats continued.”

SCHEDULE Post No. 2 plays five games this week before the playoffs start next week. Shakopee could be in a playin game on Monday but the more likely scenario is that it will play July 20 and 21 at Joe Schleper Stadium.

SHAKOPEE INDIANS

SHAKOPEE COYOTES

Just like season, tournament was up and down

Losing streak snapped

Aaron Olson pitches team to win

Webster crushed

BY TODD ABELN tabeln@swpub.com

A season that can’t seem to get on track continued for the Shakopee Indians with an upand-down weekend. The Indians, hosting the Jordan/Shakopee Coors Light Classic, had some really good moments and some really headscratching moments, just like their season. Shakopee opened up the tournament by getting a 3-1 win against St. Michael on Friday night. The Indians finished the tournament with two losses on Saturday to get knocked out before the championship round. Against St. Michael, they got a strong pitching performance from an unlikely source — shortstop Aaron Olson. Olson, the starting shortstop, stepped to the mound and held St. Michael to just one run. Olson wasn’t really fooling anybody but he got the job done. St. Michael had runners on base all game long but the Indians’ defense played great to stop most of the threats. Shakopee turned three doubleplays in the win. Shakopee trailed 1-0 until it tied it in the fourth inning when Olson drove home Brandon Olson, who started the inning off with a walk and stolen base. In the fifth, Nate Brown

singled home Dan Harris for a 2-1 lead. Troy Wasiloski drilled a home run in the sixth for an insurance run. T hose good vibes disap peared on Saturday when they let a game get away from them against Moorhead. Moorhead took advantage of two Shakopee errors in the sixth inning to defeat the Indians 4-3. Moorhead led 1-0 until Wasiloski drilled a home run in the fourth inning to tie the game. In the fifth, Moorhead answered with a home run of its own. Shakopee answered right back as Aaron Olson hit a tworun home run for a 3-2 lead after five innings. In the top of the sixth, Moorhead’s leadoff hitter was safe after Aaron Olson threw the ball over the first baseman’s head from shortstop, allowing the runner to get to second. After pitcher Chris Rupert induced two short fly balls to centerfield, it appeared he was going to get out of the inning with no damage. But with two outs, Moorhead hit a little bloop over the shortstop’s head that scored the runner from fi rst. The next batter hit a single that slipped through the leftfielder’s legs, which allowed the runner from first to score to give Moorhead a 4-3 lead. Shakopee could not answer

The Indians couldn’t rebound from that disappointment and finished the tournament with a 5-2 loss to Cold Spring. St. Louis Park defeated Moorhead for the Coors Light Classic title while Cold Spring beat Blue Earth for third place.

LEAGUE PLAY Sandwiched around the Coors Light Classic were two River Valley League wins for the Indians. On Monday, they defeated St. Peter 9-8 behind two home runs from Zach Bohar. Olson also hit a home run in the win. Nate Brown picked up the victory. On Tuesday last week, Shakopee defeated Arlington 18-17. Curt Hartfiel earned the win on the mound and got the walkoff single in the ninth inning.

The Shakopee Coyotes snapped a five-game losing streak with a big win against Webster. The Coyotes defeated Webster 12-1 in seven innings on Wednesday last week. Matt Griebel earned the win for Shakopee, going six innings. Shakopee scored early and often as Josh Gregor started the game off with a single and then stole second before scoring on a Chris Kubitz double. The Coyotes were unable to get a winning streak going as they lost to New Market 12-6 on Sunday night. Sha kopee g rabbed t he lead in the fi fth inning when Nate Roberts singled home two runs. That margin didn’t last long as New Market scored four times in the sixth to regain the lead. Shakopee grabbed a 6-5 lead i n t he eight h when Kubtiz’s sacrifice fly scored Mike Moll. In the bottom of the seventh, New Market scored seven times to win 12-6. Jordan Triestram took the loss in relief of Kubitz.

Dan Harris avoids getting hit by a pitch against Moorhead.

Woody returns to winner’s circle Arthur “Bill” Woodworth, a fi xture at Raceway Park since the 70’s has had many big wins on the way to track championships in 1985, 2005, 2006, and 2007. His win Sunday night in the 25-lap Ventaire Hobby Stocks feature; his first in three years, may have been the sweetest of them all. “Woody” or “Hacksaw”, as he is affectionately known to many, has faced some serious health challenges in recent years. This has limited his racing time but not his passion for competing at Raceway Park. His soft-spoken manner, friendly demeanor and quiet courage in the face of various physical ailments have made hi m much ad mi red by his peers, racing fans and track staff. He started on the pole Sunday night and ran a strong consistent race with his closest challenger being 2010 Hobby Stock Track Champ Brent Kane who finished second after starting eighth in the 14-car field. Bryan Turtle, Jeremy Wolff and Luke Schmitt rounded out the top five. I n NASCA R W helen A l l

American Series Super Late Model action, Chad Wa len scored a “hat trick” by setting fast time, winning his heat, and then going on to win the 30-lap main. 2009 and 2010 SLM Track Champ Adam Royle, who was just .0 02 seconds slower in qualifying, won his heat and was right on Walen’s back bumper as both crossed the fi nish line. Royle had won the last two features and the pair seems destined to battle for the 2011 title right down to the last race in September. Shawn Evans continued his hot streak by winning his fi fth feature of the season in the Impact Printing Bombers while Erica Waibel won her third Coca- Cola Shor t Tracker feature of the year following a final seven lap side-by-side duel with Keith Paulsrud. Dennis Barta and John Lebens took the top spots in the two Turtle’s Bar and Grill Figure 8 features. It was the third NASCAR point’s race win of the year for Lebens and the second for Barta. The Great North-Cheerios Legends and Prestige Plumbing Bandoleros made their

fi fth visit of the 2011 season a successful one. Ten Bandoleros were on hand for a 10-lap feature which was won by James Wenzel, his third of the year. Tim Brockhouse won the Legends race just ahead of 13-year-old Kyle Hansen who has been having an amazing season at Raceway Park and Elko Speedway. Racing resumes at 7:3 0p.m., Friday when the Justice Brothers Present Friday Night Destruction featuring Figure 8 and Flag Pole racing, the Mini Stocks, Flyers, Flat Track Motorcycles, the SquidWheelies Stunt Show, Drifters and a Dukes Jump. Then on Sunday, July 17 the Le Sueur and Scott County Corn and Soybean Growers present a NASCAR Event featuring all six NASCAR divisions plus Kid’s Bike Rides and free admission for Scouts and leaders in uniform.

Shakopee soccer team headed to nationals

T

he Shakopee 12U-A girls soccer team is going to participate in the 2011 USSSA World Series Event in Overland Park, Kan., this weekend. The team clinched a birth to the national tournament by finishing first or second in tournaments offering USSSA births throughout the season. This team clinched their first berth by winning the St. Paul Sting tournament in early May and securing a second berth by winning the Wayzata Warm Up tournament. The team also finished second in its league qualifier tournament to secure a second seed in the upcoming state tournament in Mankato. The team finished in first place in its division.

‘Back to the Farm Night’ is planned at Raceway Park July 17 When the auto racing oval now known as Raceway Park in Shakopee was built in 1958, it was laid out right next to a barn, farmhouse and milking shed and surrounded by fields of soybeans, green beans and other crops. Today, those buildings remain, serving as a “country courtyard” filled with lots of shade, green grass and picnic tables, all located behind the grandstands. So when the idea of a program to celebrate the accomplishments of local farmers was presented to the Minnesota Corn Growers Association (MCGA) and then to the Scott/Le Sueur county organization, “Back to the Farm Night” at Raceway on July 17 was born. Corn and soybean farmers in Scott and Le Sueur counties decided to keep it close to home by sponsoring the evening. “We think this is going to be a great opportunity for Raceway Park fans and racers to learn the real story about their friends and neighbors who grow corn and soybeans in the farm communities surrounding the metropolitan

area,” said MCGA President Greg Schwarz, who raises corn, soybeans and turkeys in Le Sueur. “The R.E.A.L. Story (Responsible, Ethical Agriculture for Life) has more to it than you might think. That’s why we’ll have a booth along with our friends from the Minnesota Soybean Growers Association (MSGA) set up with educational materials and the R.E.A.L. truck and trailer on display in the courtyard. If you want to meet the real farmers who produce the food that feeds you and your family, the 17th will be a great evening to be at the races.” Other planned activities for the program, which starts at 6 p.m., will include a car race for the Minnesota Corn and Soybean Growers board and staff members, a ridealong experience for one lucky drawing winner and photo opportunities in victory lane. Minnesota Corn/ Soybean Growers Association members who present membership cards at the general admission gates will receive a $2 discount.

MSHSL ‘best of’ hoops survey In March of 2012, the Minnesota State High School League will be celebrating 100 years of basketball tournaments. The fi rst was held in 1913, an invitational affair hosted by Carleton College in Northfield and won by Fosston 29-27 over Mountain Lake. The League is soliciting public input in selecting some of the greatest moments in the history of both the boys’ and girls’ state tournaments. An online poll is available on the League website to collect the “best of” in several different categories. Here is the direct link to the poll — http://www.mshsl. org/survey. Six categories have been established for which up to three responses may be given for each gender: I Greatest state tournament games, boys and girls. I Best state tournament fi nishes, boys and girls. I Best state tournament

shots, boys and girls. I Best state tournament teams, boys and girls. I Best state tournament players, boys and girls. I Best state tournament coaches, boys and girls. The poll will be available for public input until July 31. Results will be compiled, reviewed by League staff and a panel of basketball aficionados, but not released until the 2012 state tournaments. A variety of events are under consideration to commemorate the 100th year of state basketball tournaments. League staff is also soliciting memorabilia that could be displayed during the tournaments, such as programs, trophies, uni forms, balls, newspaper clippings, audio recordings, films or videotapes. If you have something of interest you are willing to have displayed at the tournaments, contact the League office at (763) 560-2262.

From the Shakopee Valley News, 1986

50 years ago… From the Shakopee ArgusTribune, 1961 Feb. 2, 1961 – Chamber of Commerce President Cy Sames congratulates banker E.J. Huber at the Chamber testimonial dinner. A capacity crowd attended the annual Chamber of Commerce Ladies Night and testimonial dinner. On the program was also Dr. W.A. Muralt, who sang a song in honor of Mr. Huber, and the Minnetonka Area Barbershop Singing group with several selections. Feb. 2, 1961 – Two pilots were killed in a mid-air crash over the north end of a northsouth runway at Flying Cloud Field. The two planes collided in mid-air as both were attempting a landing on the field. “It was all over in about two seconds. It seems as though two pilots did not see each other, perhaps because the ground at this time of year has a camoufl age effect which makes it difficult to spot low incoming planes.”

100 years ago… From the Shakopee ArgusTribune, 1911 Feb. 17, 1911 – Miss Josephine Koenig was hostess at a prettily appointed fancy-dress party for a number of her girlfriends. Thirteen were present, masked to represent different characters and a part of the

March 26, 1986 – Canterbury Downs’ first year exceeded expectations. Minnesota’s fi rst horse racing track opened in Shakopee last year, bringing about 13,000 people a day into the area between June and October. Canterbury Downs Publicity Director Ben Cambra said the track’s fi rst year was better than expected. The track brought about 800 seasonal jobs to the area. In addition about 700 people worked in the backstretch. There are about 60 year-round jobs. “We contributed about $4.5 million to the state through a portion of the money that was brought in,” Cambra said. “Canterbury Downs is the only major league outdoor sport in town,” Cambra commented. “We have our own niche.” March 26, 1986 – Guests are coming…about 3,200,000 of them….hopefully for dinner, drinks, a room overnight. Because the Chamber of Commerce feels the better we look and the better we act…the longer our guests will stay… this summer, bright beautiful banners will line Shakopee’s main street to welcome our guests! April 2, 1986 – 1-Hour photo shop opens in Shakopee…Photo Finish opened in Shakopee Bowl in December with the chance to get film developed within just one hour.

March 10, 1911 -- New Jersey farmer recently discovered that his cows were being robbed of their milk at night. He hired a detective to watch for the thieves. Although he could discover no thieves, during his first two nights, the cows came home in the morning minus their milk as usual. Finally it was discovered that a flock of geese from a neighboring farm were in the habit of running with the cows at night and when the animals lay down the geese helped themselves to their milk.

It also keeps the fish from “rolling over.” It helps the fish steer and “brake,” too. What part of a fish is like a man's arms and legs? G B
