Legal group provides service to low-income county residents BY MICHAEL RICCI SUN NEWSPAPERS For decades, a local legal group has defended the rights of others, but now it is fighting a battle of its own. Legal Assistance of Dakota County, 14800 Galaxie Ave. Suite 103, in Apple Valley, is a private, nonprofit organization dedicated to providing free legal services to lowincome residents in Dakota County, but the group of three staff attorneys and about 100 volunteers is struggling to meet all of the needs of its target clientele. LADC primarily directs its efforts to cases involving family law, areas such as divorce, child custody, grandparent custody, rights and responsibilities of unmarried parents and protective orders for lowincome county residents. Katie Trotzky, LADC executive director, explained why the legal group focuses mainly on these cases. “It matches what the poverty population

needs,” she said. “Most of the poor people in any area, but in Dakota County as well, are women and children.” Trotzkey approximated the number of those in the county who fall into this category and who could benefit from LADC’s services. “Dakota County has the fourth highest poverty population in the state,” she said. “The percentage is small, but the number is big. There are about 58,000 people in Dakota County who have incomes less than 200 percent of the poverty guidelines.” Incomes are relevant to LADC, as the group limits cases where the individual requesting it qualifies in two main areas: financial status and place of residence. Likely clients must have household incomes below 125 percent of poverty guidelines, and the potential clients must reside in Dakota County or have a case rooted in the county. Among the many cases LADC takes are those

work…There really aren’t many jobs like that out there.”

A lifetime of sports Overlund has enjoyed sports his whole life. Marty Overlund, Dave’s father, traced his son’s passion for sports to when he was learning the alphabet and playing Tee Ball. From the developmental baseball game to years of playing the real thing, Marty witnessed his son’s passion for baseball grow exponentially. That passion soon spawned into other sports on a year-byyear basis throughout his childhood and to this very day. “Dave’s been obsessed with sports his whole life,” Marty said. “He could tell you anything about Twins baseball, and their stats from any year. He’s like a walking encyclopedia with anything about baseball. Ever since Tee Ball he’s been into baseball, but he knows a lot about other sports, [too].” Dave’s grandmother lives in Apple Valley, mere blocks from where Dave grew up. Like Dave’s father, she also recalls his interest for sports stemming from a young age. “He was into collecting cards and getting autographs,” said Marg Overlund,

Dave’s grandma. “[With] just about any sport, you can ask him [a question] and he can come up with an answer for you.” Dave Overlund remembers his affection for sports and playing baseball from his childhood, but he said passion would turn from playing more toward observing sports throughout in his high school years. He enjoys the energy that a sports event can generate, and recalls attending hockey and football games, among others, during his high school years at Apple Valley. “I really enjoyed the atmosphere at the games,” Dave said. “The unity of the crowds, the booing and the cheering together, the emotions involved with watching a game [in person].” Broadcasting wasn’t at the forefront of his mind then, but he would later draw the connection of these feelings (of the atmosphere at sports events) to his current career pursuits. At Apple Valley High School, he worked for the school paper and had thoughts of going into print journalism, but admitted his high school grades weren’t very good and college may not have been something he was ready for at RADIO: TO PAGE 24

that there is not always a lot of recognition, so when the students recognize the teachers, it tends to hold a special meaning.

I wanted to cry because I was so happy for her. She makes me strive to be as great of a teacher she is. I was thrilled. I was absolutely thrilled.� For being selected as the 2011 Outstanding Instructor of the Year, Behnke received a medallion and will get to lead the grand procession during DCTC’s graduation ceremonies.

DNR: Black bear spotting in Apple Valley ‘atypical’ Authorities urge caution if bear is sighted again BY JOSEPH PALMERSHEIM • SUN NEWSPAPERS It’s never easy to be a teenager, but when you are a teenage bear with a propensity to travel, there aren’t many places in the suburbs that you can fit in. Such seems to be the case with a recent visitor to Apple Valley. The Apple Valley Police Department received three calls about the sighting of a juvenile black bear Wednesday, May 11, and officers responding to the scene discovered tracks leading authorities to believe the sightings were credible. The bear was spotted in residential areas south of 140th Street between Galaxie Avenue and Pilot Knob Road, and north of 145th Street. It’s an uncommon call for police, but for the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, it’s common for this time of year for northern suburbs. “This is the time of the year, and a typical call for us, for [reports of] young bears that have been displaced as their mothers entered a breeding season,” said DNR representative Bryan Lueth. “Teenage bears are looking for good spots in the world, and some individuals like to travel, for some reason. If it found area with secure food, it would

settle down. But in an urban area, they tend to keep moving.” Lueth said that it is common to get bear calls in the northern suburbs of the Twin Cities, closer to the black bears’ natural habitat range, but a call from as far south as Apple Valley is atypical. He speculated that this particular bear does not travel during the daytime, and was likely able to move long distances using park and river corridors in the area. It’s reasonable, he said, to assume that the bear came from northern Minnesota. “They don’t post danger to people if precautions are taken,” Lueth said. “The typical Apple Valley resident doesn’t have a lot to worry about, but we ask residents in the northern suburbs whether they really want to feed birds, because bird feeders are a number one bear attractant. Coming out of hibernation, bears need a high-calorie food source, and bird seed is the jackpot.” According to DNR estimate, the statewide population of black bears is around 17,000. “This is the first [bear call] that I can remember,” said police Captain Michael Marben. Marben said that it was possible the bear could be the same black bear sighted twice in early May in Eureka Township. There is less than five miles between where the bear was sighted in Eureka Township and where it was sighted in Apple Valley, he said. The first call about the bear came in around 9:45 p.m., when a homeowner reported it walking through a front yard on a sidewalk. It was next reported walking through back yard towards Andy’s Market, and its last known position, stemming from a third call, was on Pilot Knob Road heading into a residential area. Officers discovered the tracks at 140th Street and Fleetwood Avenue. Marben says that people should just leave the bear alone if they spot it. “We just caution all residents, it’s not a pet,” Marben said. “Don’t approach it. Go back inside your home, and call the police. We will deal with it. Our goal is to make sure the animal isn’t threatening anyone, but obviously, an urban area isn’t the place you want a bear.” According to DNR, black bears are native to Minnesota, but their primary and secondary habitat ranges are usually found north of the Twin Cities.

Thoughts on becoming the ultimate townie BY JOSEPH PALMERSHEIM SUN NEWSPAPERS Despite having a complete inability to tell you what I had for dinner three nights ago, I possess an uncanny knack for identifying family photos of nearly any era down to the month and year. My mom will show me some random shot taken on a featureless stretch of beach, and I’ll say, “Oh yeah, that was Door County, summer of ‘93, because I am wearing that watch that I bought at Target that summer when we ran into Spencer Brewer during the shopping trip. Also, that’s a Looney Toons shirt you found for me at JC Penney on clearance that spring.” As much as I would like to say that having a great memory for the trivial is a blessing, there are times when it is more a of parlor trick than anything

else. While it is great to baffle friends with recollections that inspire a startled “How do you remember all of this stuff ?” it is hard not to apply the same mental mapping to Dakota JOSEPH County. A f t e r PALMERSHEIM spending 27 Dakota County out of my 31 Managing Editor years on this planet in Eagan and Apple Valley, I am a sort of living “On this day in history” marker plaque. I can point out the spot on 140th Street where I threw up a cheese dog in 1986 and lost my taste for that particular food item for the next 15 years. I can recall the old farmhouse that used to occupy the spot now filled by the Galaxie Library. I can point out what used to be where in the Burnsville Center, including the site of the former record store where I bought “Thriller” in 1984. This institutional memory

suits me well as a professional, but as an individual, the memories serve more as reminders of how much everything has changed since I was a kid. As a product of the American suburbs, we didn’t get cathedrals and great works of art. We got shopping malls and brightly painted park swingsets, and that was perfectly fine with me. But while Notre Dame has probably changed little since it was finished in 1345, the Burnsville Center has evolved in the way that a living, organic structure would. Even the Mall of America is starting to show its age a bit, which makes me feel a little bit older, as I still consider it as “the new mall,” and can remember very clearly the day it opened in August 1992, when Ryan Murray, my next-door neighbor, came home with a commemorative mall bear and wouldn’t stop talking about how cool it was. Even the smallest of spots in this area hold some sort of memory. Part of me wonders

LETTER TO THE EDITOR “Hearing” and “listening” not the same To the editor: A recent letter praised the incumbent state senator for Eagan and eastern Burnsville for “listening” well at an open town hall meeting in late April, the first of the legislator’s term that began in January. Residents in the south metro area are subject to the problems many others have, and which our country has been dealing with over the last four years or so: foreclosures, unemployment, sky-

rocketing cost of living, led by upwardly spiraling gas prices, and the steadily increasing power of corporations. Many addressed these problems. The state senator’s answer was to talk about how angry people are, and how we must keep that anger in check if we are to have a civil discussion. In the session he and fellow G.O.P. members, in the vaunted position of a majority, voted down a proposal by Democrats that would have raised taxes on the excess income of the wealthiest Minnesotans. They did this despite the state Revenue Department’s Tax Incidence

how life would have been if I had moved someplace else. Would the changes be more obvious? Would it deflate me to see the natural developments that repopulate our landscape and lives with the new and different? Would I even care? In the end, the old saying is true: you can never really go home again, even if you never really left it to begin with. Now, if you will excuse me, I have to run an errand to Burlington Coat Factory. Which used to be a Kmart, until it closed in 2002. They had a great clearance sale, and I bought a digital 1.3megapixel digital camera. That Kmart also always had the best Slush Puppies in town when I was a kid, and that was back when that entire development was a multi-entranced mall that included a Carbones with “Pole Position,” my favorite Atari game. See what I mean? What exactly am I supposed to do with all of this useless data? Write for a newspaper, I guess.

Study, which shows these wealthy folks pay a smaller percentage of their income in taxes than the rest of us, and less than they did during good times in our history. Instead, the talking points in the meeting concerned the need to cut spending on programs for low-income people. Information about the more beneficial impact of tax savings for lower-income people than upper-income people may have been “listened to,” but they drew no comment. This illustrates there is a crucial difference between listening and hearing. Paul Hoffinger Eagan

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Denying reality? To the editor: Both of your May 5 letter-writers seem to be denying reality. The first one (“Legislator: balance the budget fairly”) wants the Minnesota State budget to be balanced “fairly” but then wants to exempt the largest item in the budget – education – from not only any reductions but from any reform that might reduce costs and improve results. It also continues the myth that educational results for our children are directly tied to the total amount we spend, and nothing could be further from the truth. Republicans have decided to increase education funding yet again this year, though passing reforms that may actually improve results if the unions quit fighting against our kids. That’s reality.

The second (“Shared sacrifice?”) is similar in that the writer seems to believe our outrageous federal debt and deficit can be remedied without reducing or reforming the largest contributors – Medicare and Medicaid – to that runaway spending. Both letters assume we can continue overspending indefinitely if only “the rich” could pay more, but any realistic calculation reveals the utter impossibility of that course of action. Simply confiscating the income of everyone making over $250,000 per year covers only about one third of this year’s federal deficit! It is time for realistic and practical solutions, as Republicans in the Legislature and in Congress have proposed. Wishful thinking won’t cut it. Jerry Ewing Apple Valley

Women with Low Thyroid Many people live their lives suffering from low thyroid symptoms. This is especially true for females. Thyroid hormones control all your metabolism, and when thyroid hormones are low they cause all the cells in your body and mind to slow down. These symptoms include fatigue, weight gain, mood swings, sweet cravings, depression, sluggish thinking, thinning hair or hair loss, and cold hands and feet. For some people digestive problems like constipation and acid indigestion may signal low thyroid. Even when taking thyroid medication, many people continue to suffer from the symptoms of having low thyroid. Some people are even told their lab tests are normal but still continue to endure the symptoms of low thyroid. However, there can be a solution for symptoms from low thyroid! Dr. Phil Gilman DC FMA FASBE, a published thyroid researcher and chiropractor, is holding a seminar to discuss low thyroid symptoms. His research shows that while blood tests are valuable in evaluating thyroid dysfunction, often the basic tests are inadequate in finding the underlying causes of low thyroid. For example Dr. Gilman’s published research showed that liver func-

tion affects low thyroid. This research also showed that low thyroid persons have a observable posture and testable muscle weakness. There are six patterns of thyroid dysfunction and only one of them responds well to thyroid medication. That is why so many have been disappointed in their results. During the seminar Dr. Gilman will reveal the number one cause of low thyroid in the United States, why many women taking replacement hormones won’t get better, six patterns to thyroid problems, and why doctor’s don’t run complete thyroid tests. He will also discuss the one food that is often involved in low thyroid and how to test for it. In addition to exposing these truths about thyroid treatment, Dr. Gilman will also discuss natural solutions to correct thyroid problems. Due to the high demand and sensitivity of this information, seating for Dr. Gilman’s private thyroid seminar is limited to 15 people.

Dakota County moves toward smoke-free living BY JENNIE OLSON • SUN NEWSPAPERS Since the passing of the Freedom to Breathe Act in 2007, the right to smoke has become a smoldering topic of discussion and controversy in Minnesota. In addition to not being permitted to smoke in public places such as restaurants, lobbies, and businesses, Dakota County smokers may now have a tougher time smoking in their apartments as a result of the Smoke-Free Living movement sweeping the cities. Live Smoke Free, a nonprofit promoting smoke-free multi-housing units, is funded by Dakota County Public Health as a part of the Statewide Health Improvement Plan. “We’ve been working primarily with building owners and managers to educate them on smoke-free policies and the benefits of going smoke-free in their buildings,” said Live Smoke Free Program Manager Matt Farmer. “We’re working to fill the gaps in the Minnesota Clean Indoor Air Act.” The Freedom to Breathe Act, which made amendments to the 1975 Minnesota Clean Indoor Air Act, says that common areas of apartment buildings such as hall-

ways, laundry rooms and community rooms must be smoke-free. Whether or not smoking is permitted in individual units is up to the managers. View Pointe Apartments in Eagan adopted a smoke-free living policy several years ago for half of their buildings. “In the entire complex, you can’t smoke in the hallways, entryways or balconies, but half of our buildings are also smokefree, meaning they can’t smoke in the units either,” Leasing Consultant Lindsey Szymanski said. “We’re finding that a lot of people are going in that direction and have allergies, don’t want that smell, or want a clean environment, so we want to offer that, but for people who want to smoke, we want to offer that as well.” “Roughly 75 percent of people are looking for smoke-free housing,” Farmer said. “There’s certainly a demand for it, so we’re working on providing that for residents.” Jade Lane Apartments in Eagan offers one building that is smoke-free and one that permits smoking. “More and more people are actually smoke-free these days, so having that option is a choice we offer for residents,” said Property Manager Bill Cunniff.

But when it comes to seeking out smoke-free apartments, Cunniff said it’s not a top priority for many of their tenants. “There’s a very small amount of people who actually ask about [smoke-free buildings,]” Cunniff said. “I know it’s important to some people, but I would say that with prospective residents coming in, one out of every 15 will ask if it’s smoke-free.” Farmer said when a apartment managers interested in going smoke-free will often conduct a survey to find out how many tenants smoke, whether or not they smoke in their units, and if they would like a smoke-free policy. Once they decide to make the transition to smoke-free housing, they update their lease with an amendment, and as residents renew their leases or as new tenants sign the form, they agree to not smoke in the building and it slowly transitions to become smoke-free. The entire process can take up to a year because of the way the leases are structured. The Dakota County Community Development Agency has also adopted a smoke-free policy. The agency has been building affordable independent living senior housing since 1990 and has the

largest locally funded senior housing program in the nation. Three years ago they decided that all new senior housing construction would be smoke-free. The agency has opened three smoke-free buildings already, and are in the process of opening three more. According to Assistant Director of Administration Sara Swenson, communities with existing senior building options will continue to allow smoking, but all new construction will be smoke-free moving forward. The Live Smoke Free program started approximately five years ago with 50 buildings in Minnesota that were smoke-free. Now, there are more than 600 buildings that are smoke-free. Dakota County had one smoke-free building before the program and now has 36 that have adopted the policies. The program grant through the Statewide Health Initiative Program will expire June 30, and the future of the Smoke-Free Housing movement is unclear. “Live Smoke Free will go on through different funding sources, but as far as [the Statewide Health Improvement Program] goes, we’re not sure what’s going to happen,” Farmer said.

Burnsville Community Center to host workshop for Somali community

S TA R T-T O - F I N I S H W I N D O W & D O O R R E P L AC E M E N T

BY JENNIE OLSON • SUN NEWSPAPERS Somali native and Minnesota resident Hassan Samantar is using his role as a multicultural parent advocate at the PACER Center to help increase communication between the Somali community and public schools. Because Minnesota is one of the fastest-growing states in terms of diversity, Samantar said the need for New Americans is different than the needs of the mainstream. “It’s very difficult for the New Americans to come to a state where a lot of the services provided here in our country are not available back home in Somalia,” Samantar added. “There’s a barrier in the community, and the biggest need is communication.” Founded in 1977, the Parent Advocacy Coalition for Educational Rights (known as PACER) helps expand opportunities and enhance the quality of life of children and youth with disabilities. The organization is primarily staffed by parents of children with disabilities and works in cooperation with 18 disability organizations. PACER assists individual families, hosts workshops, distributes materials, and develops leadership. “Parents bring their children in, and we can help them with learning and functioning better,” said Manager of Parent Training Virginia Richardson. “We work with all disabilities in children from birth until they are young adults. We help the parent understand the child’s disability, and we help them communicate effectively with professionals.” PACER is offering an upcoming free workshop for Somali parents of children with disabilities. The workshop, called “Special Education: What Do I Need to Know,” will be hosted 6-8 p.m., Friday, May 20, at the Burnsville Community Center. The program is funded in part by the Minnesota Department of Education. “New Americans have a number of different issues that I work with,” Samantar said. “I help them with their kids’ education rights, I do home visits, I work with [Individual Education Plans] and so forth. As the only multicultural person, I have a lot of different projects and wear different hats.”

Education Topics discussed in the workshop will be the importance of parental involvement, how parents can work effectively with the school, information about evaluation processes, working with an Individualized Education Plan, and effective partnering of special education and general education. The workshops for Somali parents of children with disabilities are hosted as often as needed. “Some projects require two or three workshops, and some projects might only require one a year,” Samantar said. “The community might have a need for a particular issue that they struggle with, and of course those are in addition to what the projects require.” Richardson said they key to reaching these parents is to go to the community rather than making the community come to them. “We plan workshops that we set up in communities, but we also do a lot of responding to communities if they want us to come do a workshop there,” Richardson said. “The difference in serving New Americans is that we have to get in their circle instead of building it and think they have to come here.” “In my experience, 95 percent of the time when I get involved, the relationship between the school and home gets better,” Samantar said. In addition to hosting workshops across the state, PACER also has a tollfree number people can call where representatives assist them in resolving issues regarding education. Although the focus is on parents, they will also assist teachers, principals and superintendents. “I think there’s an enormous need for information because information is power,” Richardson said. “PACER helps bridge the gap between the parents and the school, and I think both of them benefit. When you don’t speak the language, people don’t get the services that other people do when they speak the language. I think PACER feels a responsibility to provide social work services to people who need it very much.”

Eagan Art House serves array of ages, interests BY JEFF BARTHEL • SUN NEWSPAPERS Located on the west side of Lexington Avenue, the Eagan Art House is a place for people with an array of art interests and skill levels. The facility is operated and managed by Eagan resident Julie Andersen, who sees art as not merely a hobby, but a way of life. “It’s kind of like breathing,” Andersen said. The 47-year-old said her interest in art originated from her childhood, when her mother brought her to a production of “Rapunzel.” The play lacked glitz and glamour, but that didn’t matter. What particularly struck her was the production’s simplicity and creativity, which induced her to conjure up her own thoughts and images. “There was no set or costumes. The actors created Rapunzel’s hair by holding hands and spreading across the stage,” Andersen said. “I was fascinated by creating the details of the play in my imagination.” She has since become a lover of all forms of arts. From music, to painting, to pottery; whatever inspires ingenuity

or creativity. Most recently, however, Andersen has implemented her art adoration and knowledge at the Eagan Art House, which she has supervised since 2005. Classes offered at the Eagan Art House include painting (watercolor, oil, acrylic and multimedia), jewelry and pottery. The facility also offers activities tailored toward scout groups, families and birthday parties. The Art House has programs to fit a variety of timeframes and seasons. It has classes that work around school schedules, like preschool art, after school classes and homeschool classes. It also offers co-op classes on or off site for elementary, middle, high school and homeschool students. The organization also hosts a variety of summer camps. Typical age ranges for Eagan Art House classes are 4-6, 7-12, teens and adults, and 55-plus to seniors. Andersen said the classes for children are great, but she spoke particularly of the interests for adults and seniors. “For many people that come here it’s a life-changing experience,” she said.

Art FROM PAGE 10 “Especially for our seniors because they really need that connection. They come here for that social aspect. They’re at a place in their life where they like to be around other people their age, and [here] they’re doing art along the way.� Some of the adults are first-timers, some come to Eagan Art House to recapture art interests from the past. “Later in life sometimes you have time to do different things that you didn’t have the time for before,� Andersen said. “Maybe they took up art in high school or college, but hadn’t done it since.�

A partnership Andersen is the primary operator and day-to-day caretaker of Eagan Art House, but the organization would not be possible without the assistance of other nonprofit groups and the city of Eagan. Eagan Art House is called a “house� because it was once was. Before being reconfigured into an art center, the quaint, one-story rambler that sits on the front lawn of Patrick Eagan Park was initially a family home.

In the 1980s, the house and its plot of park property were acquired by the city, according to Parks and Recreation Department Director Juli Seydell Johnson. Following the acquisition, Johnson said, the house and property were leased to Dakota Center for the Arts for $1 per year until 2007. The city has always owned the property, operations were officially turned over from Dakota Center of the Arts to the city that year. This is not to be confused with the official opening – and the first classes – of the Eagan Art House in 1997. Andersen said the Eagan Parks and Recreations Department, Dakota Center for the Arts and Eagan Art House, have been partners for many years. She said she is very thankful for Seydell Johnson and for her department’s involvement with the Eagan Art House. “She was very instrumental in making that happen in 2007,� Anderson said, regarding Seydell Johnson and official ownership being accrued by her department in 2007. Andersen also credited Dakota Center for the Arts, other nonprofit groups and the various grants the House has been able to receive. Wanda Borman, a teacher at the Art House, is the director of both the Dakota Center for the Arts and the Eagan Arts

Festival, shared her thanks for the city’s involvement with Eagan Art House, specifically with the organization’s programming and its location. She said the art center was included the city’s longterm plans for Patrick Eagan Park, which she feels is an ideal location for the art center. “The Art House became an integral part of [Eagan’s plans for Patrick Eagan Park],� Borman said. “Which was great, because it’s wonderful to be located on a natural site, where the teachers can take classes outdoors for plain-air painting [and] younger kids can go out for a recess or to pick up nature to make a collage. There are a lot of big advantages beyond the partnership, just with the location [alone].� As a city representative, Seydell Johnson also spoke of the Eagan Art House’s value to the community. “The Eagan Art House is important to Eagan because it provides opportunities for everyone, no matter their age or ability, to experience creating art in many forms,� Seydell Johnson said. “[It] provides a friendly and low-stress environment for first-timers to try painting or drawing or making pottery. For the more experienced artist, the Eagan Art House provides a supportive community of artists in which to grow and expand the arts dialogue.�

Looking to the future The Eagan Art House was recently awarded a Creative Intersections Grant from the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council. Andersen and Borman said they are using the grant to reach out to the community. The two have been contacting Eagan citizens to get their feedback on Eagan Art House, and their thoughts on art and its use throughout the city. “I really think that there’s a grassroots groundswell of art support in our community,� Andersen said. “People want more, they want to see more, they want to do more.� “It’s about bringing people in and saying, ‘if you could dream about what the arts would look like in Eagan, what would you see?’� said Borman. They have been seeking feedback through whatever means possible. Borman has been working with her Dakota Center for the Arts council. The two have also been working with chamber of commerce, talking to neighbors, hosting focus groups and having dialogs with local residents. “I could sit here and run painting classes for the next 20 years, but I think because we are such a strong, communiART: TO NEXT PAGE

Eden Prairie






Like any typical mom, Julia Sawyer, of Eden Prairie, spent the first year of her son’s life enamored by him, delighting in each new milestone. Then as he headed into his second year, she began to notice changes, setbacks. By 2.5 years of age, Sawyer’s son was diagnosed with autism. “He was considered pretty severe,” she said. “He couldn’t talk, didn’t make any types of babbling and just did a lot of hand flapping.” He also struggled with following directions. That’s when Sawyer met Tara Bertone. Sawyer said that was the beginning of the journey to where they are now today, with her son participating in the mainstream curriculum for seventh grade, participating in track and generally, a very smart 13-year-old. THERAPIES Bertone began working with autistic children in 1996 as a behavior therapist. She later earned her master’s degree in speech and language pathology. “I noticed kids either get a behavioral program or parents take their kids to speech, but the therapies were separate,” said Bertone. Throughout her education and experience, Bertone witnessed firsthand the benefits of applied behavior analysis (ABA) therapy as well as verbal behavior therapy but was disappointed by the lack of collaboration with speech-language pathologists. According to Bertone, although ABA professionals are proficient in teaching new skills, rarely did a speech-language pathologist play a significant role in the development of curriculum and program management, which are primarily language and communication-based. Her passion for helping kids drove her to create Autism Matters, a center that strives to address the disconnect between these two disciplines. “We did some research and found there were very few services in the area,” she said. “That was the catalyst to opening a center in Rogers.” Services include speech-language assessments, speech-language therapy, oral-motor therapy using TalkTools, VB/ABA intensive intervention, occupa-

tional therapy, academic tutoring, self-help skills training and parent training and resources. Sawyer’s son received therapies from the Minnetonka location, where Sawyer found having multiple services under one roof beneficial. Many autistic children are recommended to participate in 20 to 40 hours of intensive therapy that can be demanding on parents and families if services are located far away and scattered throughout the area. Another benefit for Sawyer was having her son’s therapists all on the same page and not having to go through the emotional and mental rigors of playing messenger between them. “If you’re taking your child to five different places, it becomes your job to ensure therapist A knows what therapist B is doing,” Sawyer said. “Here, they all meet with you as a team.” “The consistency piece is critical,” Sawyer said. “If everyone was throwing different stuff at him he wouldn’t have made the same level of progress. At Autism Matters, all the therapists use the same techniques and same philosophy.” Many times in other therapy plans treatment is set up so the focus is first on the behaviors. But Sawyer said she’s found Autism Matters to be unique in that Bertone approaches therapy from a mindset of improving the child’s communication and language skills first. NO CHILD ALIKE Autism Spectrum Disorders present themselves in such different ways from child to child. Sawyer said no two children with it necessarily look alike. There is also conflicting information on what causes it and what can be done for children to make progress. Because of this, Sawyer said the emotional toll is especially great. “With autism, you often already feel isolated by the time you receive your child’s diagnosis. You have probably withdrawn from doing some of the typical things parents do like play dates or outings because of issues with your child,” she said. She works to get the message to other parents going through this same journey that there is hope. “I was basically given no hope back then. I was told my child would never talk, and now he does,” she said. – Thursday, May 19, 2011 – Apple Valley, Rosemount & Eagan Sun-Current

COMMUNITY NEWS Spring water flushing As part of the established maintenance program for Rosemount’s water utility, city crews will begin flushing water mains Monday, May 23. The procedure may cause temporary discoloration of the water supply. The city flushes the water system each spring to keep pipes in good condition and to check for problems with water mains

and fire hydrants. The procedure is expected to be complete around June 10. A side effect of flushing the system is that water may briefly appear brown because of minerals. Consumers who notice discoloration should avoid doing laundry until they have flushed their own pipes by letting their faucets run for a few minutes until the water is clear. Info: 651-322-2022.

Aging in place allows you to keep your heart at home


ome really is where the heart is. Upon retirement - when all of their children have moved out of the house - 90 percent of Americans age 60 and older choose to stay right where they are, according to 20 years of data from the U.S. Census Bureau. And because so many Americans are aging in place, they're looking for ways to make their homes safe and comfortable for the long term. With just a few modifications, retired couples can make their homes perfect sanctuaries for their golden years. Here are some modification ideas to help you keep your heart right at home: • Staying connected is important for many seniors, especially if they aren't able to get out of the house as frequently as they used to. There are video/television systems and services available that allow you to chat with a person from a care program while sitting at your dining room table. Program staff can also monitor your house and contact a relative or emergency service if they notice you haven't moved in awhile. Some couples

enjoy the interaction they have with the person on the other end of the video cameras, while others appreciate knowing that if they were to fall or get sick, someone would notice and respond immediately. • Independence is also very important for seniors, and this is especially true in the bathroom. Climbing over a bathtub wall becomes more difficult as people age, and can also make the bathroom very dangerous for slips and falls. Walk-in bathes have a step-in, step-out design with anti-slip floors and internal grip bars that allow you to safely and independently bathe in your own home. Because the door opens and seals shut, this walkin bath allows you to sit down prior to running any water, which can help prevent a slip or fall. • If you plan to stay active in your community, you may need to make adjustments to your vehicle so you can safely and easily negotiate the controls from behind the wheel. Car manufacturers are adapting vehicles to accommodate seniors with such options as seats that swivel to face out the door so you can sit down or stand up

easily and not have to bend down at an angle to climb into the seat. Other available adapters are dashboards that push back until the driver is in the seat and ready to start the car, buttons to control the radio and temperature on the steering wheel, and sliding cabinets that help a person load items into the trunk - and get them out easier. • Make your home easily accessible. At least one entrance should be level with the walkway - you may need to build a ramp to accomplish this. Also consider changing the door handles to lever style so if a person is suffering from arthritis, they can still easily open the door. Remote locks and a covered walkway are also a good idea, because you won't have to be standing out in the elements while you attempt to unlock the door with a key. The covering also helps prevent ice from building up along the walkway. Finally, installing a good light at all the entrances will allow you to easily see where you are going and any potential obstacles that might be in your way.

10 ways to prevent or reduce hearing loss H earing loss affects more than 34 million Americans. If detected early, it may be a preventable chronic disease. Here are 10 ways to help prevent, delay or reduce the extent of hearing loss. 1. Noise exposure. Are you one of those listening to iPods, shooting firearms, riding motorbikes, or working with lawn and garden tools? These devices are causing hearing loss at alarmingly high rates. Wear hearing protectors or avoid exposure to loud sounds. Turn down the volume and reduce the length of time you listen to your iPod or mp3 player. Studies show that people who wear noise canceling or noise reduction earphones with iPod or mp3 players typically listen to music at safer levels. 2. Cotton swabs. Cotton swabs and ear candling are unhealthy practices to remove earwax, to clean or scratch your ear canals. Don't use cotton swabs to clean inside your ear canal. It can push the earwax in further

and you could puncture your eardrum. 3. Smoking tobacco and second-hand smoke. Studies suggest that chronic nicotine exposure impairs the brain's ability to "hear" and interpret sound. Along with the other reasons to stop smoking, you can reduce your likelihood of greater hearing loss if you quit or stay out of smoky places. 4. Diabetes. Diabetics are twice as likely to have hearing loss. Eating a healthy diet, maintaining proper weight and daily exercise can help you avoid type 2 diabetes. 5. Alcohol. Too much alcohol can contribute to permanent hearing loss. Recently, researchers found that drinking 2 beers in a half an hour can cause temporary hearing loss for up to 16 hours. 6. Solvents. Organic solvents (such as styrene and toluene) are commonly found in paints, lacquers and industrial printing inks. Studies have shown that these substances have a negative effect on your hearing.

7. Medications. There are at least 96 different drugs that may cause permanent or temporary hearing loss. When you stop taking aspirin and aspirin-containing drugs, your hearing may come back. Excessive use of Nonsteroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs, cisplatin (a cancer drug) and erectile dysfunction drugs can also cause hearing loss. 8. Antioxidants. Antioxidants and vitamin supplements may help prevent hearing loss. Hearing loss due to aging may be prevented with a combination of antioxidants, mineral and vitamin supplements such as folic acid and magnesium. 9. Your heart. Newly published reports show that a healthy cardiovascular system increases the likelihood of maintaining hearing, particularly among older adults. 10. See an audiologist. If you think you may have hearing loss, an audiologist will test, monitor and offer solutions to help you function better.

the time. Thus followed the years he spent working a handful of restaurant server and temporary office jobs. Eventually, however, his life would come to a point where he wished to seek a post-secondary education and to pursue a career in journalism. He enrolled at Inver Grove Community College in 2007, and said he liked it there primarily because he enjoyed working for the Inver Grove student newspaper. However, that door would soon close as the newspaper was shut down. Despite being disappointed by this, Dave went on to complete his two-year liberal arts degree at Inver Grove. Craving to extend his journalism pursuits, he continued his college education at St. Cloud, where he immediately stumbled upon good fortune. “When I first went up, I went to some kind of student job fair,” Dave said. “The [St. Cloud State] radio station approached me and said they need an assistant news director.”

Dave assumed the position with KVSC 88.1 FM immediately. He said held the assistant director job through his first year, and his responsibilities included doing a variety of news and sports reports and broadcasts on the side of his directing duties. He said he tried out working with an array of topics, but sports was what he particularly excelled in. Dave became the head director of the radio station his following year – as a sophomore. He also worked as a sports reporter for the St. Cloud student newspaper (University Chronicle) and did freelance work with the school’s television station (UVTS). It was during these times when his passion for print journalism steered more toward broadcasting; in particular, radio broadcasting, the medium he found the most joy in and realized his found his skills to be best tailored for. Though it took him until his late 20s to realize his a gift and passion for a career in radio, Overlund can think back to his childhood and draw a connection to it. “I always liked to listen to Herb Carneal and Harry Caray growing up,” he said. Carneal was well known for his playby-play radio broadcasts for the Twins from 1962-2006. Caray had nearly a 53-year career, most recently famed both his radio and TV broadcasts for the Chicago Cubs from 1982-1997. Overlund recalls Carneal from radio and Caray from TV, but the presence of their voices were prominent just the same. “I can appreciate the way the broad-

caster could become almost a bigger story than the team,” Overlund said. “The way a good broadcaster can convey the emotions of the game, and keep the games interesting to the audience. With a good broadcaster, you can tell if the team’s winning or losing based on the tone of his voice.” Overlund’s broadcasting experience blossomed into several rewarding experiences. One came at a Gophers versus Huskies hockey game at Minnesota’s Mariucci Arena, where at the press gate, as member of the media with St. Cloud, he signed in underneath the signature of Glen Sonmor, a Minnesota hockey legend who coached both the Gophers and North Stars, and has been a professional radio broadcaster for many years. The moment sticks in Dave’s mind as a glimpse of where his broadcasting pursuits can take him. “That was kind of a reality check,” Dave said. “You’re thinking [to yourself], ‘You’re just a student, bro, you’re low on the totem pole.’ You see the name of a legend [Sonmor], you haven’t made it anywhere yet, but it lets you know that you’re on the right track.” As the majority of Sonmor’s professional hockey playing and coaching years were before he was born, Overlund said many of his memories of him stem from stories his dad told him when he was young. He credits his dad as been a big influence in his life with sports and journalism. He has vivid memories of when he was a child and the two of them reading the Star Tribune sports section together. “We’d look at the Sunday paper together and rip apart the columnists and analyze what they were saying,” Overlund said. His dad spoke fondly as he recalled those moments as well. “Yeah I definitely remember that,” Marty Overlund said, who was warmed by the thought that his son thinks of those memories. “That was one of my favorite things to share with him. No doubt.”

What’s next Marty Overlund said he couldn’t be any happier for his son with his successes and pursuits with broadcasting, especially with the particular focus on sports – an interest he instilled in his son at a young age. “I think it’s great. I couldn’t be any more proud of him,” he said. “It’s amazing to think of your son as a little kid, now he’s out there broadcasting and doing some great things. It’s just awesome.” Overlund’s plans right now are to work hard at his Beetles job, continue to improve and polish his skills, return to St. Cloud for his senior year in the fall and complete his bachelor’s degree by next spring. – Thursday, May 19, 2011 – Apple Valley, Rosemount & Eagan Sun-Current

St. Joe’s FROM PAGE 1 “preliminary demand estimate for senior housing in Rosemount, Minnesota� during its Wednesday, May 11, work session. According to Community Development Director Kim Lindquist, the 28-page document concluded that there was “some market� for senior housing in the city, both now and in project in 2015. Much of the demand is for housing with services involved, and the study indicated that the market area is “oversupplied� with active adult senior housing. Lindquist said that having senior housing with services like assisted living and memory care is important to keep those seniors living in Rosemount. “We’re aware of residents or parents of residents that have had to move to Eagan and Lakeville for those services, and we’d like that available for our community,� Lindquist told the Sun-Current. “The big question is if this a good location, from market standpoint, for senior housing.� Lindquist said that Rosemount was interested in bringing in a private developer to create not only senior housing, but also additional tax revenue on the site, which is currently city-owned. While the former St. Joseph’s Church has been remade into the Steeple Center, repurposing the school would be a costly proposition. It was built in the early 1950s, asbestos was used in its construction and there are parts of it that are not up to current code. “My understanding is that the school could use it because they were [grandfathered in], but once that changed, it need-

ed to be brought up to code,� Lindquist said. “It’s a split-level building with no elevator, which is obviously a problem from a handicapped accessibility point. As a public building, we really need to address it.� The original school, built in 1953, closed in 2009. The new 46,000 square foot education center, located next to the newer church building at 13900 Biscayne Ave., serves more than 200 students in grades K-8. It cost nearly $7 million to build. When interviewed in 2009 about leaving the old school building, Principal Thomas Joseph was not exactly nostalgic. “It’s been a lot of band-aiding and duct taping to keep it going,� Joseph said. “We have leaking skylights; we lost a big chunk of our playground to the new library. We have a computer lab that houses half a class, and no air conditioning. It’s time to move. I don’t really have a lot of feelings of remorse about it. The new facility will allow us to do so much more.� Rosemount acquired the 1924-built church and attached school in 2004. A 23member community task force convened in 2006 to determine how the site should be used, and returned in 2007 with several recommendations, including using the church as an arts and cultural facility. The $120,000 grant was one of six the CDA recently awarded to redevelopment projects in the area, including $250,000 given to assist relocation of tenants at Burnsville’s Valley Ridge Shopping Center, which is scheduled to be torn down and replaced with senior housing. CDA representative Dan Rogness said that the grants allow 18 months for a project to be completed, with a potential oneyear extension available.

Legal FROM PAGE 1 involving domestic abuse, which often requires an order of protection. Due to the sheer volume of potential cases, meeting all of these needs is a battle in itself. “There are probably about 10,000 domestic abuse cases that that size population would have,� Trotzky said, referring to Dakota County. “We can handle probably about 25 to 30 percent of the demand for the kind of case that is being requested.� Lori Bronk of Apple Valley is a client who qualified and received assistance from LADC. The group assisted Bronk in obtaining an order of protection against a man with whom she shares a child. “This is a weird circumstance where he was using someone else’s cell phone numbers, so they helped me work with the Apple Valley Police Department to subpoena the other person’s phone records,� she said. Bronk was prompted to contact the group after the father of her child violated two orders of protection, stemming from threatening behavior exhibited during visitations. Her case has been settled, at least for the time being, and she expressed a great deal of relief for feeling safe, as well as gratitude to LADC for making it possible. She said the LADC did more than she expected by helping her in other ways. “To me, they went above and beyond. You don’t always get that when you’re a single parent, low-income,� Bronk said. “It wasn’t just the legal part. They stood

by you.� Bronk further noted that she was accompanied to court by LADC staff on more than one occasion, and they took time to fully explain legal situations and their likely result to her. She also said that they assured her of her safety by virtue of the group’s involvement. Though the legal group was able to successfully help Bronk, Trotzky still has concerns about the future of LADC and how it will continue to serve Dakota County residents in need. “This is particularly appropriate as far as what is happening in the funding for legal aid,� Trotzky said. “We get money from the state, and we get money from the county, and we get money from the bar associations, as well as some individuals, primarily lawyers.� The executive director said the state’s current financial position is an issue for LADC’s staff members to keep their eyes on. “We’re in the second year of the last biennium, and they are working on the budget for next year,� she said. “We are looking at a significant cuts.� To help offset expenses and to help LADC continue serving Dakota County residents, the group accepts donations in addition to its involvement in fundraisers.

Until they meet again? Blaze, Lightning aiming for top section seeds Burnsville beats Eastview 8-4 to earn split in regular-season baseball series BY MIKE SHAUGHNESSY • SUN NEWSPAPERS Burnsville’s 8-4 victory over Eastview on May 12 gave the South Suburban Conference baseball powers a split in their regular-season series.

Nobody will be surprised if they get a chance to break the tie in the upcoming section playoffs. The Blaze’s victory not only gave it a one-game lead over Eastview heading into the final week of the regular season, it provided Burnsville with a needed psychological boost. Eastview beat Burnsville 5-4 in the teams’ previous meeting April 18. Although Burnsville coach Mick Scholl tried to downplay the significance of last week’s game, his players weren’t necessarily going along with

it. “This game was really important,” said winning pitcher Quinn Johnson, who worked the first six innings. “They beat us the first time and we wanted to send a message, let them know we’ll be here next time.” If there is a next time. The Class 3A, Section 3 playoffs are scheduled to begin May 27, and the fifth-ranked Blaze (14-3 overall) and seventh-ranked Lightning (12-5) could be the top two BASEBALL: TO NEXT PAGE

Eagan teams narrowly missed in their attempt to qualify for the state True Team track and field finals. The Wildcats finished fourth in the girls and boys Class 3A, Section 2 meets May 10 at Eagan High School. Stillwater swept the team championships. Eagan finished 26.5 points behind the Ponies in the girls meet. Eagan girls head coach Rob Graham said his team had its best effort of the season at True Team sections. Katie Kvas almost broke a school record in winning the shot put with a throw of 40 feet, 2 inches. Graham said the Wildcats had dozens of personalbest performances. Eagan sophomore Danielle Anderson took first place in both distance events. She won the 1,600 in 5 minutes, 26.98 seconds and the 3,200 in 11:54.63.

Irish get another shot at the title Boys track and field team returns to state True Team finals BY MIKE SHAUGHNESSY • SUN NEWSPAPERS Rosemount has a road trip scheduled Friday, May 20, to Stillwater, which by now is the next best thing to home for the Irish. The boys track team goes back to Stillwater for the state Class 3A True Team finals, with field events beginning at 4 p.m. and track events starting at 4:30. Rosemount was second in the state True Team meet last season after winning the Class 3A championship in 2010. A victory in the Section 3 meet May 10 at Apple Valley High School sent the Irish back to the state meet. Rosemount scored 816 points to finish 58 ahead of Apple Valley. Eastview finished fourth in the eight-team section meet. Apple Valley was third in the wildcard “meet” that is scored on paper to determine the ninth qualifier for the state meet. Minnetonka earned that spot. Rosemount’s boys opened the section meet with a victory in the 4x800-meter relay. The Irish’s time of 8 minutes, 15.51 seconds was about eight seconds ahead of second-place Prior Lake. Other event winners for the Irish were Goaner Deng in the 400 dash (50.40 seconds), Chandler Dye in the 800 (1:59.53), Andrew Hausmann in the 200 (22.58), Brandt Berghuis in the discus (150 feet, 2 inches) and Joe Bjorklund in the shot put (56-8). The Irish had three of the top five finishers in the shot put, with Berghuis finishing second and Andy Malicki coming in fifth. Bjorklund also finished second in the discus. Hausmann and Myles Phillips gave the Irish the top two places in the 200. Shane McCallum was third in a close race for the 1,600 championship. Dye was fifth in that race. Apple Valley’s Kevin Davis won the 110 hurdles in 15.57. The Eagles’ Herschel Brazell (11.34) and Quinn Hooks (11.51) were first and second in the 100 dash. Hooks also cleared 6-4 in the high jump to finish second. Apple Valley’s 4x100 relay placed second in 43.37. Eastview senior Frank Veldman cleared 6-10 for the second time this season to win the high jump. He is tied for second on the state honor roll behind Trevor Yedoni of Benilde-St. Margaret’s,

Rosemount won the boys team championship. (Photo by Mike Shaughnessy • Sun Newspapers) who has jumped 7-0 this season. Veldman also placed second in the long jump. The Lightning’s Khalil Jordan won the triple jump at 44-10, more than 3 feet farther than the second-place finisher. Eastview won the 4x200 relay in 1:31.64. Erik Rosvold was second in the 1,600, onehalf second behind Shakopee’s Trent Lusignan.

Girls results Prior Lake won the Section 3 girls True Team championship with 967.5 points. Apple Valley (915.5), Eastview (835) and Rosemount (685.5) were second through fourth, and Burnsville (539) was eighth. Apple Valley finished third in the on-paper wild card meet. Lakeville South earned the ninth spot in the state finals. Apple Valley sprinter Taylor Browning starred in the section meet, winning three events. Her first-place times were 12.68 in the 100, 25.64 in the 200 and 58.84 in the 400. The Eagles’ Chanel Miller cleared 5-4 to win the high jump. She finished second in the 100 and 300 hurdles races to Richfield’s Jessica January, who is defending state champion in both events. Apple Valley teammates Kelsey Harms (11-3) and Hannah Linder (11-0) were first and second in the pole vault. Eastview’s Alex Beckman, the defending state champion in the triple jump, won the event at the section True Team meet with a leap of 35-11 1/4. The Lightning also won two sprint relays, taking the 4x200 in 1:46.27 and 4x100 in 50.28. Rosemount had three second-place finishers in the True Team section meet – Hannah Grim in the 3,200 (11:45.20), Natalie Busher in the high jump (5-2) and the 4x400 relay (4:05.60). Teeka Thompson of Burnsville was second in the shot put with a throw of 39-3 1/2. The Blaze also was second in the 4x800 relay in 10:07.20.


BASEBALL: FROM PREVIOUS PAGE seeds. Burnsville also took a one-game lead over Eastview in the South Suburban, and the conference title still could be up for grabs when the league schedule concludes Saturday, May 21, at the conference showcase at Alimagnet Park. All 10 teams will be in action that day. Three hits, an Eastview error and several walks and hit batters led to a six-run second inning for Burnsville. Eastview, which hit the ball harder than its total of four hits would indicate, was not able to recover. “Our pitcher [Adam Moorse] had a tough time gripping the ball” in the cold, wet weather, Eastview coach Tom Strey said. “That’s not an excuse; the Burnsville kids pitched in the same conditions. Adam was just a little bit off. He’s pitched on varsity before and done really well.” Moorse had a 2.05 earned-run average and only six walks in 27 1/3 innings before last week’s game against Burnsville. Burnsville catcher Justin Threlkeld was 3-for-3 with a triple and two runs scored. Derek Johnson had a two-run single in the pivotal second inning. Quinn Johnson allowed four hits and three earned runs in six innings as he improved to 4-0. “We tried to keep it low-key,” Scholl said, “but it’s easy for our kids to get excited about this game because Eastview is a good team with outstanding athletes. If you can beat Eastview, it’s a great win.” Eastview outfielder Matt Larson had a two-out, two-run double in the third inning to get his team on the scoreboard. David Barry drove in a run with a sacrifice fly in the sixth. Pinch-hitter Chris Narum drove in Scott Nelson with a single in the seventh. Burnsville broke out of a brief offensive slump. Earlier last week, the Blaze had just three hits in a 9-1 loss to Apple Valley and slipped past Rosemount 3-1, scoring all its runs in one inning. As for Eastview, “we hit the ball well,” Strey said. “We hit into a couple of double plays and when that happens in high school, it’s usually a hard-hit ball. “I like that we kept battling back after the big inning. I think we’re right there.” Eastview will play Lakeville North at noon Saturday in the conference showcase at Alimagnet Park. Burnsville plays Lakeville South in the final game of the day at 6 p.m. The Blaze and Lightning are likely to receive first-round byes in the Section 3 playoffs. The top five seeds get byes and will have their first section games May 31.

Notebook: South Suburban Baseball Showcase closes regular season BY MIKE SHAUGHNESSY • SUN NEWSPAPERS The South Suburban Conference will play its final round of regular-season baseball games on one day and in one place. Called the South Suburban Baseball Showcase, the event will be Saturday, May 21, at Alimagnet Park in Burnsville. All 10 SSC teams will be in action. The conference championship also could be on the line. Burnsville started the week 12-2 in league play and held a one-game lead over Eastview. Each team had three SSC games remaining. Apple Valley (9-5) was the only other team with a chance to earn a share of the title going into the week. Eastview plays Lakeville North (8-6) at noon. Burnsville takes on Lakeville South (4-10) in the final game of the day at 6 p.m. In other games, Eagan (8-6) plays Rosemount (2-12) at 11 a.m., Apple Valley faces Prior Lake (7-7) at 2:30 p.m. and Bloomington Kennedy (5-9) plays Bloomington Jefferson (4-10) at 4 p.m.

Blaze clinches

Conference championship outright last week, Burnsville’s softball team tried to complete an undefeated run through the league when it played Apple Valley on May 16. Burnsville beat Lakeville North 4-2 and Prior Lake 11-0 last week. The victory over North on May 10 gave Burnsville the outright championship. Megan Lehnen’s two-run double was a key hit in the second inning against Lakeville North. Kelsey Anderson hit two home runs, drove in five runs and pitched a two-hit shutout with 12 strikeouts against Prior Lake. Defending state Class 3A champion Burnsville is expected to be the No. 1 seed in the Section 3 playoffs. Pairings had not been determined when this edition went to press, but Burnsville will play its section opener at home Monday, May 23. Other contenders for the section title include Bloomington Jefferson, which started the week in second place in the South Suburban, and Park of Cottage Grove, which defeated Burnsville 1-0 in the finals of the Eastview Great 8 tournament earlier this month.

Clothes Mentor is a high end re-sale shop offering brand name women’s fashions and accessories for a substantial discount, typically 1/3 of the original price. Clothes Mentor – Burnsville is not your typical re-sale store. When you walk in, you may think you’re shopping at a specialty retailer. The store only sells quality items that are considered ‘like new’, fashionable and within a year or two of it’s original purchase. The store offers women’s sizes 0-26, petites, maternity, shoes and accessories. Customers can find high quality casual wear, business attire and dresses for every occasion. Purses are also available to compliment any outfit from

designers such as Coach, Dooney & Bourke, Louis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs, Prada, Gucci, B. Markowski, and Kate Spade. Brands such as Nine West, Liz Claiborne & Kathy Van Zeeland & more are also available. Owner Karla Fitzpatrick worked in retail management for 17 years before purchasing her franchise with her husband, John, and business partners Dan & Angie Meyer. They opened in December of 2009. Clothes Mentor is a Minnesotabased franchisor with 43 locations and 13 more slotted to open this year. “I’ve dispelled the idea that resale could not be top notch, with an inviting atmosphere that’s clean, visually attractive

and a store that all women could call their favorite shopping place,” Fitzpatrick said. “I have customers that never thought about shopping resale before and now it’s the only place they shop.” The great part about selling your clothing to Clothes Mentor is that you get paid cash on the spot for your items – no waiting for the items to sell, like at a conventional consignment store. You never need to make an appointment, and purchases are made every day up to an hour before close.
