Apple Valley student premieres original instrumental composition BY JENNIE OLSON SUN NEWSPAPERS Not many high school seniors can say they have composed and published a four-minute-long instrumental piece. Apple Valley High School student Jordan Jenkins managed to do

this while graduating in the academic top 10 of his class at the high school. Jordan’s “Anthem” will be premiered at a concert in the Apple Valley High School Theater 6:30 p.m., Wednesday, May 25. Jordan, who showed an interest in composition at an early age and

has been involved with music since he was in kindergarten, began arranging tunes for instrumentalist and jazz ensembles at the high school. The jazz ensemble performed one of his arrangements when he was only a freshman. Instrumental Music

Teacher Corey Desens came up with the idea for Jordan to compose a wind ensemble piece in a mentorship program and conduct it his senior year. The high school’s wind ensemble is an auditioned band for students

When a soldier falls on the field of battle, many things follow: the knock on the door that any parent dreads, the folded flag at the funeral, and afterwards, the dreadful silence that marks a part of life forever missing. According to the U.S. Central Command, 5,994 U.S. soldiers have been killed in Iraq and Afghanistan since both Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom started. Some of these soldiers came from Minnesota, including Marine Lance Corporal Daniel Olson of Eagan, Army Corporal Conor Masterson of Woodbury and Army 1st Lt. Christopher Goeke of Apple Valley. Following their deaths, parents of

Local dancers perform original ‘Wizard of Oz’ ballet BY JENNIE OLSON • SUN NEWSPAPERS Apple Valley resident Emily Short has been a ballerina for as long as she can remember. She always practiced walking on her toes as a child, and her parents finally agreed to put her into ballet classes to see how she would do. “I fell in love with the movement and quality and the strength you need to do it,” Emily said of the classical dance form. “I just love it.” Now after dancing for 11 years, she has landed the role of Dorothy in Wizard of Oz – The Ballet, a Twin Cities Ballet production in collaboration with Ballet Royale Minnesota and Envision Academy of the Arts. The production opens May 18 at the Burnsville Performing Arts Center. “It’s such a fun production and I’ve never seen it as a ballet before, so I thought it would be interesting,” Emily said. “I was excited to see what they were going to do with it. I think it’s fun for all ages because we have some funny parts in it that the kids would love, and we have real dancing and some really

talented people.” Artistic Director and Owner of Ballet Royale Dance Academy Denise Vogt wrote the adapted ballet several years ago. “It’s based on the original story, the movie, but it has a twist,” Vogt said, adding that she pulled elements from the Oz books, the movie, and her own imagination. “We have a Scarecrow, we have a Tin Man, we have a Cowardly Lion, we go to the Emerald City, and there’s a Wicked Witch, but there’s also a bluebird and a few additional characters.” The music is all classical and has been compiled by various composers. Denise’s husband and Ballet Royale Assistant Artistic Director Rick Vogt said the intention behind that was to avoid having singing or talking in the ballet and because the ballet requires much more music than the movie provides. “I think that’s why it’s not used as a ballet more often, because there is no Wizard of Oz music that you can find without singing,” Denise said, adding BALLET: TO PAGE 11

Eagan student nets fish art award BY JEFF BARTHEL • SUN NEWSPAPERS Eagan High School senior Jordan Pesik enjoys biology. He hopes to one day have a career in the field of nature and science. An aspiration rooted at a young age. “Ever since he was a small boy he’s had a passion and affinity for nature and the delicacy of it,” said Joe Pesik, Jordan’s father. Mom concurs, tying in a favorite hobby of his as well. “Jordan’s always had a love of nature,” said Lori Pesik, Jordan’s mother. “The first time he went fishing he was four. He’s always had a love for fishing and for fish in general.” Combine this with Jordan’s talent for drawing, and it’s no surprise that he recently was announced as the winner of the 2011 State-Fish Art Contest for students grades 10-12 in Minnesota. The 18year-old, who runs also track, will have fond memories of the day he was notified via e-mail. “I ran a pretty good race and was already feeling pretty good,” said Jordan, who had a meet earlier that day. “Then I came home, found out that I won and became even happier.” The rules for the contest stipulate that the contestant’s artwork must be created in the likeness of a state fish. Minnesota’s fish is the walleye, but Jordan chose to draw a bluegill, Illinois’ state fish. “I chose it because I didn’t think many people would draw a bluegill sunfish,” Jordan said, having noticed there were few bluegill among the winning artwork from last year’s contest - which is posted on the State-Fish Art website. “I felt it was an under-appreciated

fish,” Jordan said. His drawing depicts the bluegill swimming in its natural habitat, weaving among the weeds near the bottom of a lake floor. The fish is complete with all of its features: its thin body, olive green complexion, pointed pectoral fins, vertical bars aligned across its body, yellow underbelly and its distinguishing blue streaks along its lower mouth and cheek, where its gills are located. Detailing the fish’s beauty comes natural to Jordan, as his father can attest to. “He has an interest in the great detail of nature,” Joe Pesik said. “He has a keen eye for the fine detail of fish. From the details of its eyes to the color patterns on their sides and how they transition from top to bottom; the features of the fish from an artistic standpoint. With some of the different angles and the way he depicts them…He amazes me, he’s quite talented with that.” While Jordan Pesik enjoys both art and fishing, he said if he had to pick one or the other he would choose fishing. He simply has a pure appreciation for nature. “I like fishing [more], but I like art as well,” Jordan Pesik said. “Especially drawing nature, because there’s so much beauty that can be seen in nature, much of which people often overlook.” The youth not only has a passion for nature, he does something about it. His family adopted North Lake, in Eagan, through the Adopt-A-River program, a volunteer program offered through the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. “All three of my boys and I are involved with [Adopt-A-Lake],” Joe Pesik FISH: TO NEXT PAGE

items like car tires, mattresses and refrigerators. “People are impulsive,” Jordan Pesik said. “They leave their litter around and I think people actually dump their garbage into the lake. I was actually out fishing one day and caught a bag of fertilizer.” For his winning artwork in State-Fish Art Contest artwork for Minnesota, Jordan Pesik has also been invited to attend the national State-Fish Art Expo in Athens, Texas on June 24-25. The Pesiks already have a trip to the Boundary Waters planned for that weekend. Jordan said that while he’d like to attend the Expo, he looks forward to the trip, which will be with his dad, brothers and cousins. His artwork also makes him eligible for five national awards, and his absence will not deter his eligibility for the national awards. A certificate and first-place medallion for winning the state contest will be sent to Jordan following the June event. Jordan’s plans are to graduate from Eagan this spring and attend St. Olaf College in the fall. He hopes to study biology there and examine nature and the environment. In the meantime, Jordan will continue to enjoy his final days of high school, his fishing trips with the family and witnessing nature’s beauty around whichever corner he turns.

FROM PREVIOUS PAGE said. “We’ve fished this lake for numerous years and have really enjoyed fishing on it. Over the years, it’s gotten increased exposure and use, and subsequently there’s been a lot more littering around the shoreline…So we wanted to do something to positively impact that and to preserve it” The program’s purpose is to protect, clean and preserve the state’s lakes and rivers. Participants are given a cleanup kit, bag, gloves and other items to help them with the conservation of nature. Joe Pesik said he goes out to the lake with Jordan and his two brothers, Sam, 16, and Joey, 11. Between the four of them, Joe estimates that, in total, they’ve collected a few hundred pounds of garbage. Jordan Pesik said he enjoys the AdoptA-Lake concept and the opportunity it provides, especially considering his feelings of peoples’ neglect of caring for the environment. “We clean up the garbage along the shores [of North Lake] several times a year,” Jordan Pesik said. “We’re kind of disgusted with how people are so carefree and don’t really think about their actions.” He said he’s seen several kinds of garbage and debris on the lake, ranging from common scraps of garbage to large

Reflections on a friendly face I knew BY JOSEPH PALMERSHEIM SUN NEWSPAPERS One of my coworkers has a calendar featuring photos and biographies of fallen Minnesota soldiers on his cubicle wall. I’d never noticed it until last month, when I was walking past and saw a picture of Marine Corporal Tyler Fey, who was killed in Iraq in April 2004. I’d known Fey from when we played football at the Academy of Holy Angels. We warmed the bench together, and while I wouldn’t go so far as to say we were friends, but we were definitely buddies. I enjoyed his company during the long Friday nights spent on the sidelines watching other people win gridiron glory. Fey and I lost contact after

high school. I drifted through menial jobs before returning to college, and Fey, who graduated two years after I did, joined the U.S. Marine Corps. In April 2004, while I was in my junior year at St. Cloud State University, Fey was on his second tour in Iraq. He was killed by hostile fire April 4, 2004, in Anbar Province, and is buried at Eden Prairie Cemetery. Fey’s death put a human face on the sacrifices made by our all-volunteer armed forces. He didn’t have to be where he was when he was killed. He could have done anything he wanted, but he chose the Marines, and in doing so, chose to defend the freedoms that I took for granted.

While my feelings toward the perceived iniquities in the run up to the Iraq War have faded with the passing of time, my memories of Tyler Fey have not, and not a week goes by when I do not think of him at least JOSEPH once. I’m sure PALMERSHEIM it is like this Dakota County for all who Managing Editor have known someone who has fallen in the line of duty, and the women I spoke to for this week’s story on Scoops for the Troops spoke eloquently of how lonesome the grieving process can be. While I had the luxury of moving on with my life after Tyler died, I am sure that his family did not. I cannot imag-

ine the awful silence that probably filled the house after the last visitor left, leaving the family to face the prospect of day-in day-out living with a wound that would never fully heal. Wars have a cost. While the euphemisms for conflict may be softened and stripped of meaning (“police action,” armed intervention,” “surgical strike”), the lives put on the line are very real. Our politicians may do their best to hide these true costs, but they are there nevertheless, and hundreds of hearts are wounded for every flag-draped coffin that touches American soil again at Dover Air Force Base. Tyler Fey made the true cost of war real to me. I am proud to have known him.

Lawmakers shouldn’t widen gaps in property tax burdens BY MIKE MAGUIRE AND ELIZABETH KAUTZ • GUEST COLUMNISTS For years, we’ve been told Greater Minnesota communities needed to be specially protected from property tax increases because property taxes hit wallets in their communities harder than in ours. But a report from the Minnesota Department of Revenue shows these long-held assumptions are not true. Homeowners in the Twin Cities metro area pay a 39 percent higher share of their income to property taxes than their Greater Minnesota counterparts. That fact is revealed in the Minnesota Department of Revenue’s “Residential Homestead Property Tax Burden Report” released earlier this year. It’s a myth-buster

of a report, providing hard evidence that property tax burdens in the Twin Cities metro area are more onerous than in Greater Minnesota. This comparison between homeowners with the same income, regardless of where they live, shows that metro area property taxpayers devote 3.19 percent of their income to property taxes compared to just 2.30 percent in Greater Minnesota. As legislators and Governor Dayton grapple with a $5 billion budget deficit, there’s no question cuts will be made. We believe when lawmakers and the Governor make those cuts, they should be mindful of these property tax inequities and do everything possible to make the situation better, not worse. If legislators hold to the out-

dated narrative that’s been spun at the State Capitol for years – that Greater Minnesota can’t afford to absorb any cuts in state programs – they run the risk of widening, not narrowing, the gap. The facts show that Twin Cities area taxpayers actually subsidize the costs of Greater Minnesota services through a variety of ways. And now we know that property tax burdens in the metro area are higher than in outstate. To help educate citizens and legislators about this inequity the Municipal Legislative Commission, a coalition of 16 suburban communities including more than 834,000 residents and 529,000 employees, recently launched a website and educational campaign. You can learn more about it at our new website, With the legislature set to

adjourn in late May, legislators will be making important decisions over the coming weeks. Take some time and reach out to our area legislators – tell them we need property tax fairness and ask what they’re doing to make it happen. State changes to property tax relief programs and local government aid payments could have a major impact on our disproportionate property tax burdens. Lawmakers should take this opportunity to make things more fair. Mike Maguire is Mayor of Eagan and chair of the Municipal Legislative Commission Board. Elizabeth Kautz is Mayor of Burnsville, board member of the Municipal Legislative Commission, and President of the U.S. Conference of Mayors

School Notes

To the editor: I attended a recent town hall meeting at the Wescott Library in Eagan, and was quite impressed with Senator Ted Daley’s respectful, patient and listening-focused approach to the questions asked. We all know about the challenging financial situation we are in and to hear the senator listen to the questions and answer in straight, honest terms was refreshing. Just as Senator Daley said, he will not make promises he can’t keep with money we don’t have. In just his first few months in office, Senator Daley has demonstrated he’s a leader at the Capitol, and will listen to all of us. Gerry Chapdelaine Eagan

New resource center provides more space, choices BY MICHAEL RICCI • SUN NEWSPAPERS The operating model at the new Lakeville Resource Center aims to serve more than food – it also hopes to give its patrons a sense of dignity. The newly opened Lakeville Resource Center, 20730 Holyoke Ave., in the downtown Lakeville mall has already moved to a new space, just two doors down from its former location. The move accommodates food support clients with more efficiency and choices. The food support site, known as The Pantry, opened its doors Tuesday, May 3. Its design is intended to emulate that of a small grocery store, and allows clients to choose food they need. In addition to non-perishables, the Lakeville Resource Center is also able to offer fresh meat and chicken, milk, eggs, cheese, fruits and vegetables. Nancy Wester, communications coordinator for the centers, explained the new concept and its benefits. “We went from a pre-bagged model to a client-choice model,” Wester said. “Whereas we used to just hand them a pre-packaged bag of groceries, they now

can go through the area and pick and choose what they need.” Wester said that the dignity clients could now feel was one motivating factor for the change, along with efficiency. “The food that was donated had to be carried downstairs by volunteers, put on shelves by volunteers, bagged and then brought back upstairs, which was pretty inefficient,” Wester explained. “The food is put on shelves for the clients to choose the foods they want.” One volunteer from Apple Valley, who wished to only be identified by her first name, Cathy, has been helping others for many years and currently volunteers at the Lakeville Resource Center. “I will eventually be helping the client choose the food,” Cathy said, who puts in about eight hours a week at the center. “Probably my faith was one of the reasons [I volunteer here]. I grew up poor, and there was a time my family could have used a food shelf, but there was nothing available. I just want to give back to the community.” Although the Lakeville Resource RESOURCE: TO NEXT PAGE

FROM PREVIOUS PAGE Center has just recently begun this client-choice model, Cathy commented on the feedback from the Eagan center. “The feedback from the other food shelf is that they really enjoy it,” Cathy said, referring to clients. “It gives them a sense of dignity. We’re happy to be going to this system.” A client of the resource center, who also wished to be identified by her first name, Kathy, offered her opinion on the new client-choice model. “I think it will be a lot better because there are some things you don’t eat or don’t like,” she said. “This way, I would have my choice.”

But for this Kathy, who is from Apple Valley, the most significant service she has received from volunteers had less to do with the food and more to do with her own life. “The people are very friendly. They are helpful,” she said, adding that they helped her obtain insurance as well as clothing if she needed it. “I think they were very helpful.” The Eagan-Lakeville Resource Center is a nonprofit organization committed to serving those in need and to eliminating hunger in Dakota County. It is the largest food shelf in the county serving Eagan, Lakeville, Burnsville, Apple Valley and Rosemount

Known as the Minnesota Boys of ’61, the group formed early last year with a purpose of designing and building a memorial to honor the memories of the over 24,000 Minnesota citizen soldiers who volunteered during 1861-1865. Two Lakeville residents, Bill Dalin and Chris Zarn, are among those who are involved in the 150th anniversary effort, at least when they are not elsewhere re-enacting any number of battles that occurred during the nation’s greatest armed internal conflict. According to Dalin, the Minnesota Boys of ’61 is a collection of like-minded Civil War historians interested in getting a monument built in Summit Park in St. Paul between the St. Paul Cathedral and the Minnesota History Center. But as the saying goes, it is easier said than done. “We have a resolution from the legislature. We have the support of veteran organizations,” Dalin said, but added,

“We won’t be able to build it until we fund it.” For this reason, several Boys of ’61 stood post on a blustery day Sunday, May 1, outside a discount store in Bloomington for their first significant fundraiser. In order to make the Bloomington fundraiser and others in the future, the group holds a 501(c)3 designation from the Internal Revenue Service, “It’s tremendously important because it gives us the ability to go out and be here today,” Dalin said, referring to the May 1 fundraiser. “Without a 501(c)3 status, we would not be able to be part of this.” Dalin went on to stress that members of the Boys are all volunteers, people from various walks of life interested in honoring Minnesota’s citizen soldiers. “No one will receive compensation for anything they do,” he said. “Everything is volunteer.” As for the monument itself, Dalin described it as a group of soldiers, each a little larger than full scale, representing units that served from Minnesota. They included 11 infantry regiments, three artillery units, and two sharpshooter companies.

“This group of men will be positioned on top of a large block of Kasota stone that will be engraved with Minnesota on both sides,” Dalin explained. When asked why he and other Boys of ’61 members so strongly desire to realize their goal, Dalin said someone has to preserve the memory of those units. “There is no one left to speak for the men who fought the Civil War, and Minnesota has such an unbelievable history here,” Dalin said. “We need to remember these men for their monumental contribution and sacrifice.” Fellow Boys of ’61 member Zarm feels the same as Dalin, which is why he has been involved in Civil War re-enactments for more than six years. He has a relative who actually served in the Civil War. “His name was Lewis Johnson, and he was with the 6th Minnesota, Company F,” Zarn said. “He was with Sibley and his men. And it was actually part of the Sioux uprising in 1862 at Fort Ridgely down by Fairfax.” Zarn said the basic information has been handed down through the generations, but it wasn’t until Zarn and his father visited a county historical society that the whole story was told. “We actually went down to the

Goodhue Historical Society…and actually found out that he kept a journal everyday of his life, from when he was in the military until the day he died in 1930,” Zarn explained. “I actually have portions of his journal printed off.” One could understand better the determination of these historians and re-enactors after hearing Zarn describe what is actually involved in their re-enactments. “I have experienced the heat exhaustion myself just due to the fact that we are outside in 95 to 100-degree weather,” Zarn said. “And the uniforms that we have are actually taken from original patterns, and they are 100-percent wool. If you don’t take water when you know you need to, that’s when you get into a serious problem.” Looking ahead to the future, beyond the monument project of the Boys of ’61, Dalin said that there were no other goals in the organization’s bylaws other than securing the funds to perpetuate the care of the monument. The Boys of ’61 meet 7 p.m. the first Monday of each month at the American Legion Post 1776, 14521 Grenada Drive, in Apple Valley.

Ballet FROM PAGE 2 track rather than live orchestration. The Wizard of Oz was originally intended to be in lieu of a spring recital, but after the academy’s annual winter performance of Nutcracker at the Burnsville Performing Arts Center, audience support and encouragement let the Vogts to turn the production into a professional performance through Twin Cities Ballet. That decision gave them access to a professional lighting designer, choreographer, set designers and other production elements. “I don’t think anyone is putting on south-of-the-river original productions,” Denise said. “This is a brand new set, brand new costumes, brand new lighting in a brand new facility. It’s extremely unique, and it’s really going to be family-friendly. I think that it’s really going to be a charming show.” “The Wizard of Oz is rarely done as a ballet and it’s never been done as a ballet in the Twin Cities before,” Rick said. “The difference is that ours is an original adapted storyline from the tale. It’s been modified to be put on better as a dance.” The opening scene shows the characters as classmates in a schoolyard with the Wicked Witch as the headmistress. A cyclone then whisks Dorothy off to the City of Oz. In another twist, the Cowardly Lion, played by Lakeville resident Izzy Bouvet, comes to the group as a part of a traveling circus. “It’s very much a creative pioneer,” Rick said. “There really is not that many people who have that type of artistic vision. I can say that about Denise; she’s really the creative driving force behind all of this, and she has the staff and volunteers to make it happen.”

Twin Cities Ballet, Ballet Royale Minnesota and Envision Academy Twin Cities Ballet of Minnesota, formerly called the Lakeville City Ballet, is a nonprofit semi-professional dance company that draws dancers from area professional dance companies, dance schools and community residents. The rehearsal space and administrative home is at the Ballet Royale Minnesota, which is the Twin Cities’ only classical ballet academy south of the river. Twin Cities Ballet is the umbrella organization that is putting on the production using Ballet Royale and students from Envision, a District 191 performing arts magnet school.

“We have very high levels of dancers,” Denise said. “If anyone saw ‘The Nutcracker,’ they would know and understand that those doing the main parts are quite wonderful. They’ll be surprised at the level.” Ballet Royale Minnesota is also the resident dance company at the Burnsville Performing Arts Center, which is where the Wizard of Oz will be performed. “We’re trying to make this accessible to everyone – both the audience and the dancers,” Rick said. “There are banks of volunteers and hundreds of people involved in each of these major productions. We believe that dance is a performance art, and we give a lot of performance experience for our kids.” Rick and Denise met when they were professional dancers at the Kiel Capitol City Theater Ballet in then-West Germany. Rick is a St. Paul native, and the two ended up in the Twin Cities where Rick became a lawyer, Denise became a pastry chef, and they both taught dance on the side. “We’ve been teaching for 20 years combined,” Rick said. “It wasn’t until we opened Ballet Royale that we began teaching a lot more.” Rick added that it was a confluence of events that pushed them to open the academy. “We had a lot of people approach us who wanted us to start a school, and we had a lot of support from parents who wanted to send their kids there,” he said. “There was just a crying need for this type of thing.” Izzy said she has been dancing under the direction of Denise for approximately 10 years. “I just love performing and thought it would be a really fun thing to do,” Izzy said about her decision to sign up for Wizard of Oz. “We do ‘Nutcracker’ every year, which is original choreography but not an original story. ‘The Wizard of Oz’ is an awesome new thing to see because it’s such a good story.” “We’re having a blast even though it’s a lot of work,” Rick said. “I think it will be hugely successful.” Performances are 7 p.m., Wednesday, May 18, and Thursday, May 19, at the Burnsville Performing Arts Center. Tickets range from $15-$22 for adults and $10-18 for children under 12, seniors over 65 and groups of 10 or more. Tickets can be purchased at 800-982-2787, or at the Burnsville Performing Arts Center box office.

Giddyap! Rosemount woman seeing rapid growth in new business BY MICHAEL RICCI • SUN NEWSPAPERS Sadie Simmons never realized that a hobby could become a fast-growing business venture. The Rosemount woman may still be in the early stages of growing Sadie’s Hand Painted Tack, her home-based horse accessory business, but since her first sale, she has been very surprised with how quickly and how many orders are being placed. All of this, however, did not come without a little help from modern technology – Facebook. “One typical picture I will post will reach about 250,000 people,” Simmons said, “And my page itself is seen in 20 different countries and is translated into 19 different languages.” The lifelong art as well as drawing hobbyist started Sadie’s Hand Painted Tack in January 2010 to make a handpainted tack set for her husband, Chris. “I wanted this to last, I wanted it to be rough and tumble,” Simmons noted. “Friends started noticing it, and then my friend instantly wanted some. So I started doing some for my friends. It all just kind of took off from there.”

As time passed, the number of those seeing Simmons’s artwork grew. Eventually, people from outside her circle of friends expressed interest in her work. Now, close to 4,500 people look at her Facebook page and website, and she ships between 6-10 orders per week. With her artistic leanings, combined with a background that includes being a member of the National Art Honor Society in high school and attending the College of Visual Arts in St. Paul for a year-and-a-half, Simmons works with her customers to customize their orders to their likings. “People can customize their tack in any way they want, which people are really starting to enjoy,” Simmons said about customized tack sets. “It’s really starting to hit the horse world in a big way.” The artisan begins with raw leather, unfinished and unstained, along with a conversation with a customer about the design and any other ideas. “Whatever item I’m painting, we’ve worked out all the colors,” she noted. “I HORSE: TO NEXT PAGE

FROM PREVIOUS PAGE have sent them sketches, some ideas, and I just start painting.” Depending on the difficulty of the design and the piece she is working on, she usually completes her handiwork for each order in about one week. “Anything leather I’m pretty open to painting, but I try to stick to tack,” she said, adding she has painted, at least on one occasion, a leather wallet. Since starting her endeavor, she said there is one person in particular she considers as more than a customer, a testament to her hands-on approach. “She is actually from Wyoming, and we correspond almost everyday over email. She sends me pictures of her daughter and her daughter’s tack,” Simmons said. “She has purchased almost every item that she possibly could from me. She just loves it.”

Simmons went on to say how this customer lets her be creative in her painting. “I would have to say that any item I do for her is particularly special for me,” she described. As for her future plans, Simmons is content continuing her retail business for now. She plans on attending next year’s Minnesota Horse Expo in lateApril, which, according to Simmons, is the largest horse-related gathering in the Midwest. “That will be the largest step in showing an abundance of people who I am and what I do,” Simmons explained. “I never imagined that my hobby of doodling in notebooks and other things would turn into a business,” she said.

Former home health nurse enjoys creating healthier homes New Windows for America expanding its products, efficiency and facility Rhonda and Jim Steffes have owned and operated New Windows for America in New Brighton since 2000. Their business has grown to 30 employees and moved in March 2011 to a bigger location in New Brighton off of 35W. The company sells and installs residential windows, doors, siding, attic insulation, metal and solar roofing. “We started as a windows only company, but over the years have expanded to include more energy efficient products,” said Rhonda, who started the company after working for 10 years as a home health care RN. “I went from taking care of people to taking care of homes. We want to be your Energy Savings Solution Company.” Jim was a CPA working as the chief financial officer for a manufacturing plant before he joined Rhonda in the company. “We were founded after all the hassles and high prices we obtained while searching for windows in our home,” says Rhonda. “We felt we could do it better, cheaper and with less hassles for the homeowner. We become your

‘window guy’ for any problems, questions or concerns. One call to us will take care of it.” With the federal government pushing homeowners to be more energy efficient, New Windows for America has joined forces with Xcel Energy and is now a trade partner. “Our relationship with Xcel Energy helps us help our customers save money by making their homes more energy efficient with attic insulation,” adds Rhonda. “We also made homes energy efficient with Energy Star certified windows, guaranteed to help save up to 40 percent in home energy costs.” Solar roofing is another new product the company is installing so homeowners can eliminate a large portion of their home electrical costs, which in turn helps decrease our dependency on foreign oil. For the last nine years the company has received the Super Service Award from Angies List and has an A-plus rating from the Better Business Bureau. They also have a 6 month Same-as-Cash financing program. Rhonda claims that a major key to their

success is having the highest quality installation, adding how “most of our customer feedback is reporting how conscientious and meticulous our installers are.” New Windows for America offers a double lifetime warranty including glass breakage and lifetime labor. All vinyl replacement windows are guaranteed for as long as you own the home. The warranty in non-prorated and there will be no charge for glass seal failure or glass breakage to the present property owner or the subsequent homeowner. “If you provide lifetime labor warranty, it needs to be right the first time,” adds Rhonda. In addition to the lifetime warranty the company offers an energy guarantee. Their standard window is a triple pane which is 30% more energy efficient than double pane windows most companies install. Besides being more energy efficient, Rhonda says other benefits of having new windows and siding include increased property value and security, noise reduction,

enhanced appearance of your home and they are maintenance free and easy to clean. Plus, the Remodeling Magazine's Cost Versus Value report concludes, when replacing 10+ windows with vinyl replacement windows, the home's immediate return of investment is 73.6 percent. New Windows for America offers a wood interior window that has the maintenance free vinyl exterior. This is a nice option for those who want to keep a real wood window in their home. The wood windows are available in both oak & poplar. “We have over 2,770 references, and have installed over 50,000 windows in the Twin Cities,” adds Rhonda. “Approximately 35-40 percent of our business is generated through referrals or repeat business.” Store hours are 7:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Friday and 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Saturday.

Protect your patio from wear and tear Patios are typically the go-to spot for warm weather outdoor meals. Whether hosting friends or simply enjoying a relaxing meal under the evening sky, homeowners tend to spend as much time as possible on the patio once the weather warms up. Because it's such a high-traffic area, the patio should be protected from wear and tear. Wear and tear on the patio can result from Mother Nature or be a byproduct of all those spring and summer evenings spent relaxing outdoors. Fortunately, there are a handful of ways homeowners can keep their patios looking pristine through the summer party season. • Stain the concrete. Staining concrete protects it from natural elements, which can cause the color of a patio to peel or flake. Concrete stain penetrates deep and infuses the concrete with a permanent color that's less likely to fall victim to the elements. Stains are generally solid-color stains or acid stains. Solid-color stains, as their name suggests, provide a more even and solid look, while acid stains provide a more marble-like appearance.

While neither are likely to fade or peel quickly, over time an additional coat or stain might need to be applied to counter natural factors like sunlight. • Cover the furniture. Patio furniture can vary significantly in price and quality. Homeowners who picked up a few plastic chairs at the nearby grocery store might not feel furniture covers are worth the investment. For those with more expensive patio furniture, durable furniture covers that can withstand year-round weather are a sound investment. Waterproof and heat-resistant fabric is ideal, as the furniture will be vulnerable to spring rains, summer showers and high temperatures during the summer party season. Covers should also fit snugly around the furniture to provide optimal protection. • Consider retractable awnings. Retractable awnings might cost a little money, but they can also pay homeowners back over the long haul. First and foremost, retractable awnings protect patio from sunlight and ultraviolet rays in hot weather. A retractable awning can also protect

friends and family members should an unexpected summer shower appear or keep them safe from sunburns during summer afternoons when the UV index is high. When placed near a window, retractable awnings can lower energy bills. Such awnings can keep sunlight and ultraviolet rays from entering the home. This lowers the temperature indoors, which reduces reliance on air conditioning units to maintain a comfortable temperature. These awnings can also extend the life of furniture, which tends to fade when placed inside windows that get heavy sun exposure. • Plant trees. An eco-friendly way to maintain and add to a patio's aesthetic appeal is to plant trees around the patio. Trees can protect the patio from sunlight and ultraviolet radiation while providing some shade for friends and family members who want to spend some quality time outdoors on hot afternoons. In addition, trees can create a serene setting to a patio, adding to its relaxing nature.

Summer can be rough on patios and patio furniture. Homeowners can take several steps to protect their patios from wear and tear.

Highview Hills residents take part in ‘Art of Aging’ program BY MICHAEL RICCI • SUN NEWSPAPERS Lakeville senior living residents are learning that there is more to art than making a mess. Many residents of Highview Hills are taking part in the Art of Aging program developed by the Minnesota Creative Arts and Aging Network with a general goal of encouraging creative expression by older adults. The program, being led by local artist Anne Krocak and consisting of three instructional sessions, has residents making ceramic memory tiles, but Krocak is one of several who would say the project goes far beyond designing, glazing and painting. Luann Phillipich, a Dakota County Heritage Library employee and member of the Friends of the Lakeville Heritage

Library, is among the many individuals assisting residents with their projects. “It’s a really important way for the library and [Friends of the Lakeville Heritage Library] to give back to the community,” she said. “Many people come together to make this happen. It is a community effort.” Phillipich worked with residents in the Art of Aging program to each make a list

containing dozens of words to elicit memories, the basic inspiration for the content of the ceramic tiles. Minnesota Creative Arts and Aging Network Coordinator Pat Samples said the program provides seniors with an opportunity to tell their stories and leave legacies. “It’s important for older people to tell their stories in a meaningful way,” she said, adding that the network designed and coordinated the event. “We’re doing 23 of these throughout the metro area, and we’re doing eight of those in Dakota County. Greg Painter, Highview Hills activities director, is among the many working closely with residents. He also helped in the preparation of the project and encouraged residents to participate. “Once they see a successful program, they are motivated to participate more frequently,” he said, Resident Art Nielsen, who is from the independent living unit, is one of many taking part in the project. His ceramic tile most prominently features such images as his wife and him, a symbol of their shared faith, a campfire, a pet dog ART: TO NEXT PAGE

FROM PREVIOUS PAGE and more. “When you get done, it’s supposed to be a symbol of the high points in your life,” the longtime Lakeville resident and former agriculture teacher at the original Lakeville High School said. “The main thing is the two of us at our highest point in our lives.” Nielsen became a Highview resident about a year-and-a-half ago. He spoke quite fondly of his wife, who died in 2006, and how he chose to move into the

residence. “I couldn’t handle all of the work anymore, so I moved in,” Nielsen said, referring to his late-wife’s flowerbed and his physical limitations: a replaced hip, shoulder and two knees. Despite all this, Nielsen maintained humility and a sense of humor about his project, as well as his understanding about one of the project’s goals. “I do a much better job sketching,” he quipped, adding that he used to draw landscape designs. “For me, I think it will be therapeutic.”

ABLE repairs approved, long-term fate remains unclear BY JEFF BARTHEL • SUN NEWSPAPERS The cities involved in the ABLE fire training facility are still grappling with a smoldering issue – repair or replace? For now, it looks like the answer is “repair.” The issue was revisited at a Burnsville City Council meeting Tuesday, May 3, where a $40,000 plan for repairs was approved. “Our council approved a repair plan…on a consent [vote],” said Tom Hansen, Burnsville’s acting city manager, the day after the meeting. In January, fire chiefs from the four cities that share ABLE – Apple Valley, Burnsville, Lakeville and Eagan – presented the proposed plans and costs for the repair of the current facility and for the construction of a new one. The costs with those plans, which stem from a 2009 evaluation by AEI Engineers, were $200,000 for repairs, and $1.2-$1.6 million for a new ABLE. Hansen acknowledged this and explained the reduced cost. “The repairs are considerably less than originally planned because a new reinforcing system is being used that is much cheaper than installing new steel,” Hansen said. “The contractor is going to use concrete with stainless steel helix fibers mixed into it. This gives it a strength equal to or greater than standard rebar reinforcement at less cost.”

Both Hansen and Apple Valley City Administrator Tom Lawell are pleased with this plan, but acknowledged the fix is temporary. “The repair is good for three years, at which time it is anticipated that the four ABLE cities, and perhaps other interested Dakota County jurisdictions, will make a decision on a new $1 million-plus training facility,” Hansen said. “[The three years] will provide everyone more time to integrate any new spending into their budget plans and more thoroughly vet any other training options that may be out there.” “I think it’s a good first step to allow us to provide training for our firefighters,” Lawell said. “It’s an opportunity to extend the life of the facility...which is very important, as the need to make sure our firefighters well-trained is very important.” Hansen explained another reason for the savings with the new plan, saying that the approved plan focuses on keeping the facility safe for training, whereas the previous plan included some wall replacement not directly related to safeABLE: TO PAGE 25

Scoops FROM PAGE 1 nection began in 2008, when they discovered that their sons had been buried next to each other at Fort Snelling National Cemetery. Marine Lance Corporal Daniel Olson, 20, was killed April 2, 2007, during combat operations in Al Anbar province, Iraq. The Eagan High School grad had enlisted when he was 18. Army Corporal Conor Masterson, 21, was killed April 8, 2007, by an improved explosive device in Afghanistan. Daniel and Conor were killed six days apart. “They are buried head to toe at Fort Snelling,” Olson, an Eagan resident, said. “It was the Sunday before Memorial Day when [Sandy] and I met [at the gravesites]. We exchanged emails, and met a few weeks later at Caribou with photo albums. We’d both just lost someone. It was a connection impossible to get anywhere else.” “When we went out there to see where Conor was going to be buried, Daniel’s gravesite was still new,” Masterson, a St. Paul resident, said. “She and I went over photo albums, and introduced each other to our sons, about their life stories, and about how we were doing.” There were many hard firsts that year, the women said: the first birthdays without their boys around, the anniversaries of the last time they were home or the last phone call, and the empty seat at the Thanksgiving table. Conor and Daniel didn’t know each other, but their birthdays were a week apart, as were their death dates. “All of these things, I looked at Gwen and asked, ‘What are you going to do to breathe through these dates?’” Masterson recalled. “And she said, ‘I don’t know.’” Olson was working part-time at the Ring Mountain Creamery in Eagan, and asked the owner if the women could host an open house. The desire, Olson said, was to give people a non-threatening way to remember. Nearly than $4,500 was raised that first year, and Masterson said she realizes now that it was the first time she had felt happiness since her son’s death. “As we were closing up, I remember the three of us saying, ‘This was a good day,’ and that was a remarkable thing for us to say, because words like that had left our vocabulary,” Masterson said.

A knock on the door, a life forever changed In the movies, when a solider is

killed, the scene is tragically familiar. The Army staff car pulls up to the house, and the chaplain and a few officials begin the long, slow trek up the driveway, as depicted in Steven Spielberg’s 1998 movie “Saving Private Ryan.” In real life, this is what happened to both Olson and Masterson. Olson was working on a project when she heard someone at the door. She wasn’t able to see who it was before she opened it, and when she swung it open, she saw two Marine officers, a chaplain and a police officer. “I just can’t describe what happens, because you know [why they are here],” she said. “I remember digging my fingernails into my leg, trying to wake myself up, because it has to be a dream.” Masterson was downstairs in her Woodbury home on Easter morning when she got the news about her son. Her then-boyfriend answered the door, and, not being familiar with military customs, seemed puzzled as to why they were there. Masterson, who came from a military family, knew better. “I ran upstairs, but I knew [what it meant] the instant he said ‘two military officers,’” she said. “Had I paused downstairs, I probably wouldn’t have gone up. I ran up the stairs, two at a time, and as soon as they said, ‘We need to confirm that you are the mother of…’ that was all it took. And your world changes. In an instant.” After the funeral, when everyone else went back to work, both women confronted a reality that had been forever altered. “I know that I spent the entire first year reliving the memories of the previous year,” Masterson said. “Life had no color,” Olson said. “The first colors I saw were the American flags lined up by the Patriot Guard at another soldier’s funeral. But that first day of Scoops for the Troops was the first day that I felt excited about anything.” “You start to realize that there are more families [going through this], but we still had the first holidays to go through, and all of the first anniversaries,” Masterson said. “Their birthday. There are so many. You count every single day. A year ago today is the day they left, etc. You remember every one of those moments.”

‘Remember all who serve’ When asked what their sons would think about them starting the Scoops for Troops event, both women say that their boys probably wouldn’t have expected it, but would have given it a thumbs-up.

FROM PREVIOUS PAGE “Daniel wasn’t expressive, but I think he’d like that we were taking care of the things he cared about,â€? Olson said. “ “I have a fair amount of Army in my family,â€? Masterson said. “I served in the reserves, Conor’s dad was regular Army, his grandpa is a retired colonel. On his dad’s side, Conor is fifth-generation military. So we have a fair amount of military history in our family.â€? After one semester in college, Conor called his mom, telling her he was not ready for it, and explained why he wanted to join the military. “I don’t think any mother wants their child to go to war,â€? she said. “I wasn’t thrilled he was joining, but I certainly decided to support him after he told me he’d thought it through. He flourished being a part of something bigger than him.â€? “Daniel never liked school,â€? Olson said. “I think he knew he didn’t want college. I can’t tell you what he was thinking. Growing up between two girls‌he was deprived. He’d never gotten in a fight, and I think he needed that.

He just needed to be a full-blown, play with guns [boy]. It seemed good for him.� While Scoops for the Troops was started to remember three men who marched off to war and did not return safely, the event has expanded into something larger. “If you look at our material for the first year, it is in memory of the three boys,� Masterson said. “The next year, it has already transitioned to being in memory of all our fallen, and all who serve. It transitioned for us. We prominently display our boy’s pictures, and want other to know about them, but it’s also important to us that all of them are remembered, and that we remember all who serve.�

Randy Goeke said that the foundation “tried to have some fun with the event,� and attempted to arrange a parachute jump from Christopher’s fellow soldiers in the 82nd Airborne Division. Despite approval from the Apple Valley City Council, Randy Goeke said the plans had to be scrapped when the U.S. Army, he said, decided against the jump for cost reasons. Randy said he stays in touch with soldiers from Christopher’s platoon, and some may visit during the event. “He was definitely a leader, and a very spiritual man,� Randy Goeke said. “He lives on.

I think they were called the Ramrods.� Goeke’s love of the sport will take center stage in during the Christopher Goeke Leadership Foundation Memorial Ultimate Frisbee Tournament May 28-29 at the Johnny Cake Soccer Complex in Apple Valley. The event is being hosted by Apple Valley High School, Christopher’s alma matter, and the Christopher Goeke Memorial Foundation, a nonprofit that seeks to pass on Christopher’s leadership values to high schoolers. “Our whole thing is to promote leadership in high schoolers,� Randy Goeke said. “Something just worked for Chris [at AVHS]. He picked up on all the outstanding leadership qualities there, and there are some fantastic leaders there. That’s what we want to do – we want people to talk to the students about good leadership skills.�

Composer FROM PAGE 1 in grades 9-12. Jordan elected to take the mentorship class at the high school last fall where he worked under the direction of St. Olaf College Professor of Music Composition Timothy Mahr. Part of the mentor program required a final project for the trimester, so Jordan opted to write the composition as the culmination of his studies. “Because it’s instrumental, he had to come up with 22-25 different parts and instruments,” Desens said. “It’s so many pieces of the puzzle put together to form

In the Community, With the Community, For the Community

the whole, and to understand what instruments sound good with one another and to make it fit is rare.” Called “Anthem,” Jordan said the piece required quite a bit of conceptual thinking on his part. “I had this concept of the individual against the mass, like George Orwell’s ‘1984,’ so that was the basis from which I wrote the piece,” Jordan said. The composition process was not without its challenges. “The most difficult part about this was writer’s block because I compose in a linear fashion,” Jordan said. “I’ll start writing at the beginning and move to the end. Some composers like to write all around. The troubles I ran into were how to get out of a rut I dug myself into

and adding flow and movement to the composition.” Jordan said Mahr served as an advisor to help him make the piece the best it could be. “I would come to him with ideas, and he would give me suggestions on how to make it work – things like keeping the audience interested throughout the piece, but never trying to change the actual notes,” Jordan said. The class met once a week, with the rest of the week devoted to individual work or meetings with mentors. “The mentorship was good for overall work skills and professional skills,” Jordan said. “You learn a lot about professionalism in the work place and time management.”

“For someone who does not have a lot of experience, to put together the level of piece that he did is mind-blowing to me,” Desens said. “It doesn’t sound like a high school student wrote it at all.” Jordan plans on going to the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire next year and double majoring in music performance and political science. Although he plans on continuing composition, it will be as a side project. “Jordan is a dynamic student all around,” Desens said. “He’s graduating in the academic top 10 out of a class of 500, so he’s very intelligent and he’s worked very hard throughout his academic career to be a top-notch student.

nership. Lawell pointed out that firefighter training is a necessity for every community and that it’s plausible for cities to combine their efforts. “Maybe into the future ABLE can be expanded [to other cities] and maybe not. A lot more discussions will have to [happen],” Lawell said. Regardless of achieving a collaborative effort or finding other ways to fund a new fire training facility, the Burnsville-located ABLE facility, built

in 1987, will eventually need to be retired and a new facility built to replace it. Part of this is due to the building’s function, according to at least one official. “How many fires can you light in a building before it starts deteriorating?” Lawell said. “It’s been there a long time, these buildings have to have a lifespan, so what are we going to do for the next 20 years? That’s part of the conversation with the HIPP process and for public safety.”

Blaze loses for 1st time, but still in good shape in conference Park upsets Burnsville 1-0 in Eastview tourney championship game BY MIKE SHAUGHNESSY • SUN NEWSPAPERS Burnsville’s day at the Eastview Great 8 softball tournament had far more upside than downside, coach Hillary Hansen said. “We got to play in a tournament format, played a lot of softball and learned a ton,” Hansen said. The downside? The Blaze is no longer unbeaten. Park of Cottage Grove defeated Burnsville 1-0 in the championship game May 7, scoring an unearned run in the first inning. No. 1-ranked Burnsville was 13-1 entering this week’s play. Park’s run scored on a throwing error that Hansen attributed to a miscommunication between fielders. Burnsville was held to five hits. “I’m proud of the way our kids played,” Hansen said. “We’ll go back and clean up a few things. “That was a very good Park team we played. They beat three teams from the section [Saturday], so it was a big day for them.”

After falling behind by a run, Burnsville got runners to second base a couple of times but was unable to bring them around. In the semifinals, Burnsville defeated Maple Grove 1-0 as Kelsey Anderson pitched her fourth consecutive shutout. For the third time in that stretch, she held the opposition to one hit. In the sixth, Laura Nadeau reached first base on a drag bunt and advanced to third on a throwing error. Danielle Wolk singled to score Nadeau. Anderson had seven strikeouts. Anderson got a rare game off when Burnsville played Virginia in the opening round of the tournament. Wolk pitched the first three innings and Shannon Callanan pitched the rest as the Blaze won 11-3. Grove and Abby Harazin hit two-run homers. Harazin and Abby Johnson both were 3-for-4. Lauren Smith drove in two runs. Grove, a ninth-grader, has settled in at third base. “Now the kids ask her, ‘What does it feel like not to be a freshman anymore?’” Hansen said. Burnsville went into this week with a 2 1/2-game lead in the South Suburban Conference. The Blaze had a chance to clinch the title with a victory over Lakeville North on May 9.

Burnsville was to play at Prior Lake on May 11 and will be at the Polar Classic in North St. Paul on Saturday, May 14. The Blaze plays North St. Paul in the first round at 6 p.m. and either North St. Paul or Shakopee at 8. Hansen said the Blaze wouldn’t dwell on its first loss. “There’s no good loss, but we learned a lot,” the coach said. “We’ll lick our wounds and then get back at it.”

Weather heats up; so do Eagles’ bats Notebook: Rosemount boys lacrosse team remains unbeaten BY MIKE SHAUGHNESSY • SUN NEWSPAPERS

Baseball team wins 4 in a row, takes own tourney BY MIKE SHAUGHNESSY SUN NEWSPAPERS If warm weather helps a baseball carry farther, then the sun arrived just in time for Apple Valley. The Eagles, who sputtered along at about .500 for most of the first half of the season, won four consecutive games last week, a stretch coach Jeremy Hendrickson is hoping will jump-start them. Until last week, the Eagles had not won back-to-back games. “Offensively, we’d been in a rut,” Hendrickson said after the Eagles defeated Lakeville North 8-2 in a South Suburban Conference game May 5. “We had nine extra-base hits all year, and then we got five [against North]. Maybe this means we’ll start swinging the bats better.” Apple Valley (9-6) averaged more than eight runs a game in its four consecutive victories

last week, ending with a 6-4 win over Brookings, S.D., on May 7 in the championship game of the Eagles’ invitational tourney. The extra-base pop continued in the game against Brookings. Senior infielder Kris Goodman drove in the goahead run with a double in the eighth inning. Senior catcher Aaron Gretz tied the game with a two-run double in the sixth. Apple Valley beat Breck 12-5 on May 6 in the opening round of the four-team tournament. Against Lakeville North, Goodman had a home run and three RBI. Doug Parks doubled twice and Gretz hit a triple off the right-field fence. Senior pitcher Josh Johnson held North to five hits and one earned run in six innings. “Josh was very aggressive and went right after the hitters,” Hendrickson said. “And he mixed his pitches well.” Johnson has a 1.52 earnedrun average and opponents are batting .185 against him. Goodman, a University of Iowa recruit, is hitting .390 with a team-high 15 RBI. Gretz, who has signed with Ohio State, is batting .316. Garrett Ganskie

has a .333 average. Hendrickson is in his first season as the Eagles’ head coach, taking over for Al Iversen, who moved to Lakeville South after 10 years at Apple Valley. (Former Minnesota Twin Al Newman initially was named to the Apple Valley job but later withdrew.) Hendrickson assembled a staff heavy on former Apple Valley players. Assistant coaches Tom Buske, Jeremy Chlan and Nick Gretz all starred for the Eagles. “With the experience the coaching staff has, our expectations are high,” Hendrickson said. “But the kids have handled [the coaching change] well, and I know they’re confident. We’re starting to play well now, and our goal is to give ourselves a chance to win the section.” Apple Valley played at South Suburban Conference leader Burnsville on May 9 and will be at Rosemount at 4:15 p.m. Thursday, May 12. Iversen, the former Eagles coach, brings his Lakeville South team to Apple Valley at 4:15 p.m. Monday, May 16.

The surprise team of Minnesota high school lacrosse remained unbeaten when Rosemount defeated Apple Valley 15-10 on May 6. The home-field victory improved the Irish’s record to 80. Rosemount also is undefeated in the South Suburban Conference at 4-0. Rosemount has defeated two of the three other teams from District 196; the Irish also beat Eastview 15-6 on May 3. The team went for a sweep of district foes when it played Eagan on May 9. The Irish took control against Apple Valley (6-3) in the third quarter, scoring five goals and stretching their lead to 12-6. The third quarter also was big in Rosemount’s victory over Eastview as the Irish scored eight times. Matt Weller scored five goals in the Eastview game. Through Rosemount’s first seven games, sophomore Grant Vanoverbeke led the Irish with 24 goals and Weller had 23. Rosemount also has displayed balance; through seven games, six players had 14 points or more. Rosemount will play at Lakeville North at 7:30 p.m. Friday, May 13.

SSC baseball race South Suburban Conference baseball’s game of the year – so far, at least – is scheduled for 4:15 p.m. Thursday, May 12, when Eastview plays Burnsville at Alimagnet Park in Burnsville. Burnsville, the third-ranked team in Class 3A, entered this week’s play 10-1 in conference play, while 10th-ranked Eastview was 10-2. Everyone else in the SSC had at least five losses in the league. Burnsville is 12-2 overall, with Eastview 11-4. Burnsville was undefeated last week, beating Eagan 10-9 in eight innings, Lakeville North 10-3, Prior Lake 7-3 and Chaska

11-4. Blaze infielder Matt Stemper was 9-for-11 in the four games with seven RBI. Eastview has kept pace despite losing its projected No. 1 starting pitcher, Ty McDevitt, to a shoulder injury. The Lightning also went undefeated last week, winning three games. Matt Larson had a triple and two RBI in Eastview’s 3-2 victory over Eagan on May 5. Even without McDevitt, the Lightning’s pitching has been solid. Eastview has a team earned-run average of 1.85.

Lions Club award School District 196 has a particular interest in the Downtown St. Paul Lions Club amateur athlete of the year awards to be presented May 17. Three District 196 athletes – Rosemount’s Andrew Hausmann, Apple Valley’s Destin McCauley and Eastview’s Frank Veldman – are among the six male finalists. Hausmann was a 1,000-yard rusher for the Rosemount football team that reached the Prep Bowl last season. He also is a track and field standout and recently won the Minnesota State High School League Triple A Award. He will play football at Cornell University. McCauley is a five-time state individual wrestling champion and wrestled for six state championship teams at Apple Valley. He holds state career records for victories and pins. He currently is training in the U.S. Olympic program and will enroll at the University of Wisconsin in the fall of 2012. Veldman has been an AllState player in three sports – football, basketball and track and field. He is among the state’s top field event performers in track and will play football at North Dakota State. The Lions Club award winner will be announced at a banquet Tuesday, May 17, at the Prom Center in Oakdale.

Eagan golfers to be tested by upcoming schedule Wildcat girls finished 1st, 3rd in first two conference tourneys BY MIKE SHAUGHNESSY • SUN NEWSPAPERS Eagan finished first and third in the first two South Suburban Conference girls golf tournaments and last week won an invitational in St. Peter. A good start, but head coach Joe Joran cautioned, that’s all it is. He said he expects the Wildcats to be tested even more strenuously in the coming weeks. Actually, it started May 7 when Eagan went to the Alexandria Invitational against the strongest field the Wildcats have seen all season. “We’ll see if we’re legit,” Joran said last week before the Wildcats left for Alexandria. “It’s one of the toughest tournaments in the state. It’s a high level of competition, and it’ll give me a good grasp of where we are.” Eagan won the first SSC tourna-

ment April 21 at Emerald Greens, shooting 348. One week later, the Wildcats were third in the second conference tourney at Crystal Lake. The final two South Suburban tournaments are Wednesday, May 18, at Heritage Links and May 23 at Rich Valley. Joran said the Wildcats probably need to win at least one of the last two SSC tournaments to take the overall championship. He considers Eastview to be the favorite because the Lightning returned its top players from a state tournament team last season. Eagan’s strength? “We have pretty good depth from one through six,” Joran said. “We still have a couple of spots in the lineup we have to sort out, but we really haven’t had a poor tournament all year.” All six of the Wildcats’ varsity players broke 100 at the second conference tournament. The same thing happened at the Cambridge Invitational on April 25, where three Eagan players shot their career-best 18-hole scores. Eagan won that tournament.

Eagan’s top player, senior Jordy Drenttel, shot a career-best 78 and was medalist in the April 21 conference tourney at Emerald Greens. Drenttel was a state tournament qualifier last season. “She shot 84 at St. Peter and wasn’t happy. That tells you she has high expectations of herself,” Joran said. “She’s going to play college golf at Gustavus, which has a very good program.” Shelby Braun, Ellie Rohlf and Mallory Drenttel also have played in every varsity tournament. Braun and Rohlf each shot a career-best 85 in the Cambridge Invitational. Ninth-grader Ina San Jose was junior varsity medalist at the seasonopening Jefferson Invitational and was quickly moved to varsity. She was medalist at the St. Peter Invitational with a career-best 79. Kara Bloom, Erin Klukas and Maddie Carlin also have had some starts in varsity matches. Eastview, which won the second SSC tournament, has at least two players capable of scoring in the 70s consistently. That’s what Eagan has to deal

with as it chases the conference title. “We told the kids they can only take care of themselves,” Joran said. “Golf ’s the only sport where you can’t play defense.” The Wildcats have a match with Apple Valley at 3 p.m. Thursday, May 12, at Valleywood. The next day they will go to the Irish Invitational at Emerald Greens, with play beginning at 2 p.m.

Eastview Invitational The Lightning breezed to the championship of its invitational tournament May 2 at Valleywood, on a day when the temperature might have topped out at 40 degrees. Sara Detlefsen, the Lightning’s No. 1 player, shot 76 and was medalist by four strokes over teammate Kristi Opatz. Apple Valley’s Jessica Reagan finished third with 84. Eastview’s team score of 345 won the event by 51 strokes over runner-up Robbinsdale Armstrong. Maddy Paulsen (94) and Madi Roe (95) also counted toward the Lightning’s team total.
