Eagan police officer writes first novel Dan McCarty self-published ‘A Soldier Reborn’ in November 2011 BY MATTHEW HANKEY SUN NEWSPAPERS Rosemount native and Lakeville resident Dan McCarty has lead an interesting life. He graduated from Eastview High School in Apple Valley in 1999 – the first graduating class at the school. McCarty then joined the Minnesota Army National Guard in 1999 and served out of West St. Paul, completing two full-time call-ups. McCarty served at the MinneapolisSt. Paul International Airport for eight months following the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the Dan McCarty World Trade Center in New York City, providing security augmentation for the airport. Afterwards, he was deployed for an 11-month

tour serving in Kosovo in late 2003 and early 2004. McCarty was honorably discharged as a sergeant in 2005. In September 2005, McCarty was hired by the Eagan Police Department and has served there for more than six years. Through all his life experiences, McCarty has maintained a passion for creative writing, but did not always have the time to pursue it until recently. McCarty self-published his first novel, “A Soldier Reborn,” with the help of the Edina-based Beaver Press in November 2011. McCarty, 30, lives in Lakeville with his wife and two young boys. He took time on Wednesday, Jan. 18, to speak with the SunCurrent about his first novel. Question: What made you decide to write your first novel? Answer: I began reading suspense novels at a young age. I loved the idea of getting engrossed in the story and following along with the twists and turns. After six years in the military and six years as a police officer I felt AUTHOR: TO PAGE 4

Apple Valley City Council approves 21 contracts for construction BY MATTHEW HANKEY SUN NEWSPAPERS

The Apple Valley City Council approved the final 21 contracts for constructing the new municipal clubhouse at Valleywood Golf Course, 4851 McAndrews Road, at its Jan. 12 meeting. The contracts were approved by a 4-0 vote, with councilmember Ruth Grendahl abstaining. Grendahl said she abstained from voting “just to be consistent with my not supporting the project from the beginning.” Original bid fees for the project totaled $3.2 million, said Parks and Recreation Department Director Randy Johnson. After the Valleywood task force met in December, it decided to remove some project components and scale down certain elements. The task force determined to CLUBHOUSE: TO NEXT PAGE

Clubhouse FROM PREVIOUS PAGE keep the hydronic heating systems, computerized temperature controls and energy-efficient lighting systems as part of the project. “These elements are considered to be long-term investments,” Johnson said, adding the city anticipates the clubhouse will last 50 to 75 years. After factoring in these adjustments, the approved total project cost is now $3,198,279, nearly $200,000 more than the $3 million project cost approved by the city council last July. “I was shocked at 3 million and the fact that it’s 3.2 million has me even more shocked,” Grendahl said. Work on the new clubhouse is underway, said Johnson, with the foundation already in place and concrete cinderblock walls beginning to go up. The final 21 approved contracts keeps the project on schedule, with the clubhouse expected to open in early fall 2012, said Johnson. The city will use $1.2 million from its park dedication fund and take out a $2 million loan from its future capital projects fund to finance the clubhouse project, said Johnson. The initial financial plan called for

the city to use $1 million from the park dedication fund, but the contract bids brought that number up. This fund has a current balance of $1,531,352, which will decrease to $331,352 once the project funds are used, Johnson said. The $2 million loan from the future capital projects fund will be repaid with interest with minimum goal of $50,000 repayment per year, said Johnson. The loan should be paid off within six years, said Johnson. Councilmember Tom Goodwin hopes the city can pay back the loan at a quicker rate if the economy recovers and revenues become available. An element that raised the project cost is the inclusion of an elevator in the new clubhouse. “I look at that elevator as essential for the type of business that is being operated out there, but also the fact that I don’t want to see a worker’s claim filed,” said councilmember John Bergman. Goodwin, who serves on the Valleywood task force, said the group considered a traditional, sit-down restaurant and conference center for the new clubhouse before ultimately scratching those plans. The task force will serve concessiontype foods at the new clubhouse, Goodwin said. “One thing that was constant among the folks on the committee is we didn’t

This artists rendering shows the new clubhouse from the northeast, which focuses on the banquet hall at the back of the building. (Submitted graphic from CNH Architects, Inc.) want to go into competition with folks [in Apple Valley] that had a conference center,” said Goodwin. “We also didn’t want to go into competition with folks who are paying property taxes who have restaurants.” “Now, what we’re trying to do is we’re trying to help that guy…that person who does the 18 holes and wants a quick hamburger or a hot dog.” The new clubhouse will not be open year round, but can be opened for special events as needed, Johnson said. “If someone wanted to rent the building for a class reunion or a wedding reception, we would do that to use that

space,” said Johnson, adding the city would factor in any energy costs of running and operating the building into the rental fee. “I think the whole thing is going to kind of evolve. I really do,” Goodwin added. “And, that’s why we wanted to keep some of these heating elements into it. We may find that there’s quite a demand for this building.” Mayor Mary Hamann-Roland said building a new clubhouse was ultimately more cost effective than repairing the old clubhouse, originally built in 1980. “That’s why I think it’s really important to do it,” she said.

Low Energy Insomnia Brain Fog Afternoon Naps Wake Up Tired

Drops in energy happen slowly. They sneak up on you over the years until you suddenly realize life is passing you by. Why? Because you are either waking up tired or by the time 5 o’clock rolls around you are spent. Coffee and stimulants only go so far and once the weight comes on you are now trapped in a vicious cycle, making it hard to be productive and enjoy life. But this pattern can be broken. You do not have to go through life tired. I successfully helped many people gain better energy over the past several years. It’s not that difficult. I find most of my patients are walking around eating the wrong foods (when they think they are the right foods), sleeping horribly and taking way too many medications for issues they may no longer have. Doctors are way too busy nowadays and you the patient suffers for it. I urge you to get your life back. Come to my free workshop and see how it is possible.

His dying body is flown back to America where he

With his life in danger, he must survive long enough solve the murder and discover what really happened to Connelly. Q: How did your experiences in law enforcement, the military and as an Emergency Medical Technician shape this book?

engrossed in the book and people wanting more books. Q: Do you have plans to write a second or follow-up novel? A: The story of William Connelly is only one third of the way complete. When I started writing the story I had no idea how long the book would be. I knew most novels come in around 300 pages so I aimed to stop writing at that point and I feel like I have another 2/3rds to go. I believe this book will be the first of a trilogy about William Connelly and I plan to write additional novels after the trilogy is complete.

‘Most people have a hard time putting down the book and my two biggest complaints are people getting engrossed in the book and wanting more books.’

Q: What has been the feedback so far from friends, family and other readers of the book? A: What has impressed me most about the feedback has been the general audience’s reaction to the book. I wrote the book for the enjoyment of fellow officers and military veterans but I’ve had great response from both males and females from all walks of life. Most people have a hard time putting down the book and my two biggest complaints are people getting

OPINION Thursday, Jan. 26, 2012

Eagan • Apple Valley • Rosemount

Turtle, this is sea: It is the most pervasive, relevant “Top 5” list I have ever come across. It was a blog post, and now it’s a book: “The Top Five Regrets of the Dying.” A palliative care worker, Bronnie Ware, wrote both after spending a lot of time with people weeks before their death. “I learnt never to underestimate someone’s capacity for growth,” she wrote in her blog. “Some changes were phenomenal. Each experienced a variety of emotions, as expected, denial,

mon themes surfaced again and again.” Those themes: • “I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me.” • “I wish I didn’t work so hard.” • “I wish I’d had the courage to express my feelings.” • “I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends.” • “I wish that I had let myself be happier.” Hmm. Some of them hit home, no?

The blog expounds on each topic. But, the titles say a lot. It’s kind of hard not to imagine yourself older, lying in bed, looking up at a blank ceiling and filling it with memories from these categories. Well, older if you’re lucky enough to get that far. Even so, the good thing is, many of us still have time to make those memories. At least one of those has to be nagging at you. GROESSEL: TO NEXT PAGE

Editorial: What we do with letters to the editor We’ve been hearing from readers who are unhappy with our policies regarding letters we run on the opinion page. We understand some of the complaints, but there are others that require some clarification. First and foremost, our editorial page is meant to be a forum for ideas. And we plan to keep it that way. We receive letters from a wide variety of view-

points and backgrounds. Some of those viewpoints and backgrounds may be unpopular, but those letter writers are just as deserving of having their opinions printed as any other. We have a very simple process we go through when a letter arrives. First, we examine it based on a few simple qualifications such as word length, whether it has a signature and

phone number, the housekeeping side of things. The next step is a bit more intangible, but just as clear-cut: Does the letter address a local issue, an issue pertinent to the community and applicable to that community? We also determine the basis for the letter writers’ opinion. We don’t edit opinions, but we do edit facts. It’s up to the letter writers to supply the source for

any fact provided. If someone makes a claim that either we know is not true, is unverifiable or is not provided with a source, then we have to ask the letter writer to correct it. Also, we’ll edit or hold a letter if the writer resorts to name-calling instead of putting forth a persuasive argument. We can also correct

responsible. They are now working with the probation department to get restitution for me. This folks, is our taxes in action. My sincere thanks go out to the Eagan Police Department as well as the Dakota County Attorney’s Office for their quick action and follow through. I may get restitution, I may not, but at the very least I feel like our criminal justice system works well, and the taxes that go toward this system is being well spent.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Let’s build the pipeline To the editor: As the owner of a construction company and a member of the Partnership to Fuel America, I could not agree more that we need to build the Keystone XL Pipeline, which stretches from Canada down to Texas. The bottom line is that our economy needs jobs and the Keystone pipeline is a REAL shovel ready project that will provide thousands of jobs for American workers, like me. On top of the economic benefits the

pipeline will also increase our nation’s energy security. Given recent threats by Iran to close the Strait of Hormuz, our elected officials should be doing everything they can to find reliable and stable sources of energy. The Keystone pipeline would be just such a source of energy, allowing us to build closer ties with Canada while decreasing our dependence on the volatile Middle East. Now is the time to put politics aside and do what is best for American workers and their families by approving the Keystone pipeline. Archie Linert Eagan

To the editor: People complain about the taxes we pay, including myself, but we don’t always appreciate the benefits. A few months ago I had my car broken into by drug addicts, which caused about $1,500 worth of damage.

Rocco’s Pizza expands to Apple Valley President Jim Bauer opened seventh metro location Nov. 1, 2011 BY MATTHEW HANKEY – SUN NEWSPAPERS Jim Bauer opened his first Rocco’s Pizza location in Oakdale in April 1988. Since that time, the Rocco’s Pizza president has slowly expanded his business throughout the eastern suburbs, branching out to W. St. Paul, Woodbury, Cottage Grove and Little Canada over the next eight years. Fourteen years went by before Bauer

opened another location in Shoreview in 2010. Now, Bauer has expanded south of the river and opened his first Rocco’s Pizza in Dakota County on Nov. 1, 2011, at 14050 Pilot Knob Road, Apple Valley. Franchise owner Charlie Fish chose Apple Valley due to its proximity to his hometown in Lakeville. Fish co-owns and manages this location with Bill Pryor of Prescott, Wis. “They’re doing great,” said Bauer of Fish and Pryor. “They’ve got a really nice relationship with the high school.” Bauer said the Apple Valley Rocco’s delivers hundreds of pizzas a week to Eastview High School, located a few blocks away, for their sporting events.

“Most of the kids that work their go to the school,” added Bauer, of Lake Elmo. The Apple Valley Rocco’s operates like the other six locations, focusing on take-out and delivery service. Bauer said his restaurant employees take pride in the care they give in preparing each pizza. “We’re old school,” Bauer said. “We grate our own cheese. We make our own dough, cut and roll it. I still make my own sauce and sausage for all the stores.” Rocco’s employees assemble the pizzas in the stores, unlike many chain pizza businesses that simply reheat frozen pizzas, Bauer said.

“You’re getting an authentic pizza,” he said. “We’re actually cooking pizza.” Bauer has plans to expand his business further north and west, hoping to open a new location in Coon Rapids or Blaine this coming fall. Ideally, Bauer said he wants to open a new Rocco’s store once a year going forward. But, that is dependent on finding quality franchise managers and owners he can trust. In Apple Valley, Bauer knows he has two men who are more than capable for the job. “I want to make sure I’ve got the right people running and working the stores and Bill and Charlie are definitely the right people,” said Bauer.

EDUCATION County Catholic school information night set for Jan. 29

Pilot Knob STEM students benefit from mentoring program

Holy Trinity Catholic School will host an informational night 7 pm. Tuesday, Feb. 7, at the school, 745 6th Ave. S., S. St. Paul. Holy Trinity offers K-8 including all day kindergarten as well as preschool. Holy Trinity will be continuing its 55year tradition as a parish-based school. The school has students from Eagan, Inver Grove Heights, West St. Paul, South St. Paul and Mendota Heights. Info: 651-455-8557 or holytrinitys.org.

First grade students at Pilot Knob STEM Magnet School in Independent School District 197 are getting an extra boost in developing their reading skills through a partnership with the local organization Prime Therapeutics and the “Everybody Wins!” program. Everybody

Garlough teacher awarded $1,000 from Carbone’s Pizza Garlough Environmental Magnet School second grade teacher Anne Bolsem was awarded $1,000 from the Carbone’s Pizzeria “Carbone’s in the Community” program. The money will be used to buy Playaways – individual listening devices with stories recorded on them – for the school. “This grant will help so many of the students at Garlough improve their reading fluency and their visualization skills,” said Bolsem. “Students love hearing the expressive reading and using their imaginations to create their own pictures to go along with the stories.” Students at the District 197 school use Playaways to listen to readings, visualize stories and hear fluent and expressive reading. Bolsem was the “Carbone’s in the Community” grant program’s first winner. Individuals applied online for profit and nonprofit public or private schools and other educational organizations based on an education-based program proposal. Bolsem was selected for her compelling essay addressing how she would use $1,000 to help provide educational experiences for students at her school. Carbone’s representatives presented a $1,000 check to Bolsem Thursday, Jan. 5, at her classroom. “I have applied for several other grants over the past few years to no avail, so this was such an amazing and exciting surprise,” said Bolsem. “It was a simple application with a large reward.”

Wins! is a national literacy mentoring organization that helps build the skills needed for life-long reading by sponsoring reading partnerships between businesses and schools. Pilot Knob began participating in Everybody Wins! in the 2008-2009 school year. Ten first graders currently participate based on need and nominations from their teachers. These students meet once a week with a mentor from Prime Therapeutics to read together for 30 minutes. “This program is beneficial for stu-

dents at Pilot Knob because they feel special to have a mentor,” said Pilot Knob Counselor Jessalin Karsnia. “They develop a meaningful relationship while developing better reading skills.” Everybody Wins! aims to provide individualized attention to students who need it most to help improve their reading skills. The program at Pilot Knob also fosters the school’s partnership with Prime Therapeutics, an Eagan-based pharmacy benefit management company located about one mile from the school. Info: isd197.org.

McGough’s paintings have been described to reveal patterns that reoccur through layers of life, from diatoms in pond water and the cells in our bodies, to patterns in technology and astronomy. From the fractal repetitions of snowflakes to the pixels in a digital image, the universal prevalence of reoccurring patterns suggests that everything is connected through endless iter-

BY DANIEL CALLAHAN SUN NEWSPAPERS Looking around the USO at the San Diego International Airport, you might think the numerous Marine Corps recruits were getting ready for camp. They lounge on easy chairs, grab snacks and drinks from the kitchen, watch television and relax. For the moment, they don’t appear too concerned with why they’ve arrived in San Diego. It was said they try and make them as comfortable as they can knowing what will follow for the next three months. They’re almost carefree. For now. What they don’t know is they’ll be

‘Get outside now!’ The USO volunteers, many of them retired military or parents of active duty personnel, are familiar with the “controlled chaos” that will soon ensue. “We know to move over here,” behind the counter, said volunteer Gary Couture, when the drill instructor arrives. And he arrives soon. Loudly. “Anyone here for Marine recruit training, get outside now!” Around 100 recruits fall over themselves to get out the door and get into for-

mation – four lines stretching along a wall while they stare straight ahead – and receive their first orders. This can be complicated by language barriers as well. To join the U.S. military, you don’t have to be a citizen, just possess a green card. Anyone wearing Marine Corps gear is told to turn it inside out. A roll call is taken. Harshly. They’re told to move their wallets and any personal belongings to their front pockets. They’re stripped of any extra clothing to only a single shirt. Those with bags are pulled aside and made quite aware they brought too much. Each movement is accentuated by the same “do you understand?” from the drill instructor and a chorus of “yes, sir,” from

the recruits. Every move they make is scrutinized and monitored, as it will be for their entire training. Those movements are jerky and uncoordinated, a far cry from the precision the recruits will learn over the next three months. Then they’re hustled onto buses powered by natural gas, and sent off to stand where many have stood before.

Above, though some young men know what to expect when coming to boot camp, others are in the dark and it becomes a real wake up call, fast. At right, Senior Drill Instructor Sgt. Cory Marcus barks out instructions as the recruits read the military honor code before entering to be processed. (Photos by Chris Dillmann – Sun Newspapers)

Marines FROM PREVIOUS PAGE few as four can handle the work. It’s not an easy job, and it requires substantial personal sacrifice on the part of the instructor. Long hours, apart from family, are needed to properly train a Marine recruit. Breaking them down, “it’s the only way,” Gunnery Sgt. Ronna Weyland of the 9th Marine Corps Recruiting District said. And the first two weeks, Phase One of the training, consists of the breakdown. And they’re just getting started. The instructors get the recruits off the bus, on to the famed Yellow Footprints and begin with a quick lesson on standing at attention before they’re given a primer in the United States Code of Military Justice, where they learn what is expected of them as members of the U.S. military. Next is contraband. The recruits are allowed to keep very little with them. In fact, they’re told not to bring anything to recruit training. Cell phones are taken away and shipped to the address on record. Medication is taken away. Any weapons, tobacco, books (other than religious texts) are confiscated. Extra clothing is placed in one bag, any cash in another. They’ll keep the money, but their clothing will soon be put in storage for the next 13 weeks.

Getting into uniform The continual barking in recruits’ faces is intentional, said senior drill instructor Staff Sgt. Justin Hansen. It promotes a sense of

chaos, carefully controlled by the drill instructors, so the recruits are disoriented. The instructors quickly become hoarse, but they’re used to the abuse on their throats. “You break your voice down and rebuild it,” said Hansen. The recruits, already beginning to show signs of the strain placed on them from the constant motion and yelling, are allowed to scream one scripted call home to let someone know they’ve arrived safely. Then they’re cut off. “For three months ... they’re out of touch with the outside world,” Weyland said. For the next two weeks at least, they won’t even be allowed to write a letter. Haircuts follow. Their heads are shaved into the buzzcut they’ll wear until they’re through training. Then onto administration where they are processed into the system. They’re issued identical camouflage uniforms and gear. The purpose of the uniformity is two-fold: To remind recruits their world has changed and to form a sense of team over the individual.

Adding to the intrigue was her father Scott’s presence behind the other team’s bench as the Wildcats’ co-head coach. Eagan won 3-1 to gain a split in the season series between the teams (Lakeville South beat Eagan 6-0 on Dec.

10 in Lakeville). Still, it was clear that Natalie Darwitz is always welcome at the Eagan rink, even if she’s coaching the opposition. A Eagan jersey with her old No. 20 can be found on one of the walls. She scored 316 goals in 104 high school games – in other words, Darwitz averaged a hat trick a game. “A couple of my old high school teammates came to the game and they told me, ‘We don’t know who we’re supposed to cheer for. You’re our friend, but we went to Eagan,’” she said. It’s the second time she has been on the visiting team’s bench at Eagan Civic Arena. The first time was December 2009 when the U.S. women’s national team played an exhibition game against the Eagan High School boys varsity. Since the Olympics, she has gone full-speed into a coaching career that started as an assistant with the Eagan High girls team. She was an assistant coach at the University of Minnesota before choosing a different path last summer. “She’s been traveling since she was

15 years old,” Scott Darwitz said. “At the ‘U,’ she was the recruiting coordinator and still traveling a lot. She wanted to settle down a bit, go back to school and get a degree in education. “At first she wanted to come back and coach with me, but I told her, ‘You need an identity. Take over a program and build it.’” That led Natalie Darwitz to Lakeville South, which played in the state tournament two of the last three years but needed a new head coach. Lakeville South is 15-5-1 in her first season, but Saturday’s loss to Eagan dropped the Cougars to 9-3-1 in the South Suburban Conference. That put them six points behind league-leading Lakeville North with just four games remaining. “I thought we controlled most of the pace and play in the first period, even though we were down 2-1,” Natalie Darwitz said. “[Eagan] responded in the second and third periods and we didn’t play as well.

Eagles look to recharge after long hours on the road Wrestlers visit Wisconsin, Iowa, North Dakota BY MIKE SHAUGHNESSY – SUN NEWSPAPERS With the most grueling portion of the schedule in the background, Apple Valley’s wrestlers now turn their attention to winning a seventh consecutive state championship. When the Eagles returned from a tournament in Lisbon, N.D., last weekend, they concluded the out-of-state portion of the schedule. They had been to three different states over three weeks, with each trip requiring a bus ride of five hours (oneway) or more. Now they won’t have to spend more than about an hour on a bus to get to any of their remaining matches or tournaments as they prepare for Class 3A, Section 3 competition next month. They’ll also spend some time recharging, physically and mentally. “We’ll taper. We’ve already started,” coach Jim Jackson said. “Some of our kids are banged up, so we need to get healthy. “We’ll still work hard, but not quite as long. The kids like that.” Since mid-December, the Eagles have made two trips to Rochester, winning the Minnesota Christmas Tournament and finishing second in the Clash Duals. They went to Wisconsin, where they repeated as champions in the Cheesehead Invitational. They rode to Iowa City, where they won a round-robin quadrangular. And they visited North Dakota for a dualmeet tournament. The Eagles emerged from that stretch with six wrestlers ranked first in Class 3A in their weight classes. Some unsung heroes also emerged. “Paul Cheney is a kid who wrestled at 152 pounds last year as a ninth-grader,” Jackson said. “Now he’s wrestling at 195.

Eastview girls still know winning basketball formula BY MIKE SHAUGHNESSY – SUN NEWSPAPERS Eastview went into this week with a six-game winning streak in girls basketball, but coach Melissa Guebert says none of those is her favorite. In fact, her favorite game isn’t even a Lightning victory. Guebert, the Lightning’s first-year head coach, insists that a 54-51 loss last month at Bloomington Kennedy told her more about her team than any victory could have. The Eastview players could find out how much they have learned in the last month when they face Kennedy again at 7:15 p.m. Friday, Jan. 27, on the Lightning’s home court. Kennedy went into this week 8-0 in the South Suburban Conference, with

Eastview second at 7-1. The Eagles are ranked fourth in Class 4A, while the Lightning is 10th. So, what did Guebert like about the first Kennedy game? “We were coming off the worst game you could imagine against Hopkins [a 6422 loss Dec. 13],” she said. “It was a blowout. Then we had to go to Kennedy three days later. We played a great game and had a chance to tie it in the final seconds, but our shot went in and out.” Eastview’s winning streak started Jan. 3 against Eagan and continued against five other South Suburban opponents. The common theme: defense. Only once in the Lightning’s last six games has the opponent scored more than 50 points. “Against Prior Lake [a 53-42 Eastview victory on Jan. 20], I didn’t think we

played particularly well in the first half,” Guebert said. “We talked at halftime about some of the things we needed to do, and we held Prior Lake to 15 points in the second half.” Guard Madison Guebert, a ninth-grader, scored 14 points against Prior Lake. Seniors Emily Young and Amber Mehr had 11 points each. Becoming accustomed to a new coach’s expectations is difficult enough, but Eastview’s players also had to adapt to new roles. None of the returning varsity players previously were big scorers for the Lightning. Madison Guebert was a scorer, but at the traveling-team level. “The kids all understand how important they are,” Melissa Guebert said. “Not that they didn’t in the past, but they have new roles this year.”

They also might believe they have something to prove. After graduating the top two scorers from last year and losing head coach Paul Goetz (who resigned so he could watch his son play basketball at Rosemount High School), some questioned if Eastview could continue to contend for conference and section championships. Madison Guebert averages 16.5 points a game and Mehr scores 12.4. Five other players – Young, Tyra Johnson, Paige Palkovich, Meghan Ryan and Hannah Shie – average about four to seven points. Through a collective effort, they have answered the skeptics. “They’ve had people asking them, ‘Do you guys really think you’re going to be that good this year?’” Melissa Guebert said. “But they do know how to win.”

Rosemount Irish finish third in True Team finals BY MIKE SHAUGHNESSY – SUN NEWSPAPERS The three South Suburban Conference schools that reached the Class AA boys True Team swimming and diving finals all placed in the top nine, and Rosemount came away with third. Led by a meet-record performance in the 200-yard medley relay, the Irish improved one spot over their 2011 state finals finish. Lake Conference teams Eden Prairie (2,157 points) and Minnetonka (1969.5) finished first and second in the Class AA finals Jan. 21 at the University of Minnesota Aquatic Center. Rosemount scored 1,888.5, while the two other SSC schools in the finals, Lakeville North (1,334.5) and Lakeville South (1,183.5), finished seventh and ninth.

Darwitz FROM PREVIOUS PAGE “I hope it’s a good lesson for our kids about how they have to play in the playoffs. You have to be consistent for 51 minutes.” Eagan trailed Lakeville North by five points in the SSC standings at the start of the week but had a chance to pull closer when the Wildcats played at North on Jan. 24. Junior forward Megan Wolfe, the Wildcats’ leading scorer, scored twice in the first period and assisted on Alanna Stangl’s empty-net goal with 25 seconds remaining. Ari Reid scored for in the first

Rosemount seniors Braden McCormack, Jacob Stern, Luke Dowell and Conor Manning swam on the firstplace 200 medley relay, which finished in a meet-record 1 minute, 37.54 seconds. Stern also won an individual event in the True Team finals, taking first in the 100 breaststroke in 59.37. Other top-10 individual finishers for Rosemount were junior Andrew Urness in the 200 freestyle (eighth, 1:47.77) and 500 freestyle (eighth, 4:59.52), Stern in the 200 individual medley (fifth, 2:03.82), junior Sheldon Hatlen in the 200 IM (tied for sixth, 2:04.36) and 100 freestyle (fourth, 48.74), Manning in the 50 freestyle (seventh, 22.72), sophomore Daniel Monaghan in diving (third, 352.20 points), sophomore Gareth Estabrook in diving (ninth, 294.90), senior Jim Peterson in diving (10th, period for Lakeville South. Before taking the Lakeville South job, Natalie Darwitz ran the Eagan girls team’s summer program for several years. Playing against her team was “kind of fun,” Eagan senior captain Megan Juricko said. “It was almost like she was training us to beat her own team. We all love her. She spent a lot of time with us in the summer.” Father and daughter both said the coaching chess game became more interesting because each is familiar with the other’s hockey strategy. Scott Darwitz said he sees some coaching tactics that his daughter picked up from him, but “I’ll tell you what – I’ve also learned a lot from her. It’s been a pleasure to watch her all these years.”

291.80), Dowell in the 100 butterfly (fifth, 54.53), McCormack in the 100 freestyle (10th, 50.18) and 100 backstroke (third, 53.39) and senior Matthew McCormack in the 100 backstroke (sixth, 55.59). Rosemount was second to Stillwater in the 200 freestyle relay, with Hatlen, Stern, senior Tyler Lawson and Manning finishing in 1:29.15. Hatlen, Urness, Braden McCormack and Dowell finished fourth in the 400 freestyle relay in 3:18.35. Three ninth-place finishes – including two in relays – highlighted Lakeville North’s night at the Class AA True Team finals. North junior Ryan Young placed ninth in the 100 butterfly in 56.21. Sophomore Alex Dalgren, senior Brandon Jensen, senior Nick Saloka and senior Trae Schindler were ninth in the 200 freestyle

relay in 1:32.21. Schindler, Jensen, senior Hunter Burchfield and senior Tim Mitchell were ninth in the 400 freestyle relay in 3:22.73. Lakeville South senior Evan Ostendorf scored 363.40 to win the 1-meter diving competition by almost six points. The Cougars’ Travis Meyer was 10th in the 100 butterfly in 56.22. Sophomore Mitch Herrera swam the 500 freestyle in 4:57.41 to finish seventh. Lakeville South’s best relay finish was 12th in the 200 freestyle. Rosemount advanced to the 12-team state finals by winning the Section 3AA True Team championship Jan. 14. Lakeville North and Lakeville South finished second and third in the Section 3AA meet and earned wild-card spots in the state finals. Scott Darwitz and his daughter Natalie were opposing coaches during a Jan. 21 girls hockey game at Eagan Civic Arena. Scott is cohead coach at Eagan while Natalie, a former Wildcats star and U.S. Olympian, is in her first season as head coach at Lakeville South. (Photo by Mike Shaughnessy – Sun Newspapers)

Notebook: Legendary Burnsville coach gets hall of fame call BY MIKE SHAUGHNESSY • SUN NEWSPAPERS Legendary Burnsville High School coach Dick Hanson will be inducted into the Minnesota Football Coaches Association Hall of Fame in March, the school learned last week. Hanson was Burnsville’s head coach for 25 years (1969-93), and his teams were 192-56-2 during that time. Burnsville won state championships in 1972, 1980, 1985, 1989 and 1991, and was a state runner-up in 1984. Current Burnsville head coach Tyler Krebs nominated Hanson for the award. Krebs, a Lakeville High School graduate, played against a Hanson-coached team in

Wrestling FROM PAGE 20 At the Cheesehead, he had to wrestle for fifth place against a kid who beat him earlier in the tournament. Paul won that match in overtime. “We won the Cheesehead by what, four points? That match was big. He did a great

his final high school game when Burnsville defeated Lakeville 10-7 in the 1991 Prep Bowl. Hanson was a scout for the 1960 Burnsville team that won a conference championship, then joined Bob Pates’ staff as an assistant coach the following year. Hanson took over as head coach in 1969 when Pates became BHS athletic director. The BHS stadium now bears the name of both men: Dick Hanson Field at Bob Pates Stadium. Hanson, also a nationally recognized math teacher, has an annual golf tournament in his name. The Hanson Scholarship Fund Tournament raises

money for student and teacher scholarships. Last year seven student scholarships and three teacher scholarships were awarded. The MFCA Hall of Fame Banquet is scheduled March 31. The Minnesota State High School League’s tougher penalties for three specific hockey violations – checking from behind, boarding and contact to the head – took effect last week. Meanwhile, one player whose injury helped provide the impetus for the changes – St. Croix Lutheran senior Jenna Privette – was released from

Hennepin County Medical Center. Privette, a Burnsville resident, has been moved to a private rehabilitation facility, Let’s Play Hockey reported. Shortly before announcing the tougher penalties, the MSHSL issued a report stating there was no evidence that Privette’s Jan. 6 injury resulted from an illegal hit. Privette’s parents, Dan and Penny, disagreed with the finding. They have maintained since their daughter was injured that she was checked from behind and knocked into the boards. Privette plays for the Minnehaha Saints, a co-op girls team consisting of players from Minnehaha Academy, St. Croix Lutheran and St. Agnes.

job.” Apple Valley, ranked fourth nationally and first in Minnesota Class 3A, has wrestlers ranked in the top 10 in the state in every weight class except one. No. 1ranked wrestlers are sophomore Seth Gross (120), ninth-grader Dayton Racer (138), eighth-grader Mark Hall (145), eighth-grader Mason Manville (152), senior Brandon Kingsley (160) and junior Daniel Woiwor (182). Dakota Trom, like Kingsley a three-

time state champion, is ranked second at 132. He might get a crack at the top-ranked wrestler, Forest Lake’s Ben Morgan, at the Forest Lake Duals on Saturday, Jan. 28. Morgan defeated Trom in the Minnesota Christmas Tournament to move to the No. 1 spot. Trom might watch video of that match to look for something he can use if he faces Morgan again. Jackson said the coaches encourage the wrestlers to watch their own matches.

Videos aren’t difficult to find. Matches featuring Apple Valley’s higher-profile wrestlers are all over YouTube and various wrestling websites. “We rarely watch videos of someone else. We want the kids to focus on themselves,” Jackson said. “The philosophy is to improve on what you’re doing.” The Eagles, 6-0 in South Suburban Conference matches, also will wrestle Bloomington Kennedy/Jefferson at 7 p.m. Friday, Jan. 27, at Kennedy High School.

Junkers & Repairable Wanted

By: Ali Holman, co-owner of www.coreconditioningtraining.com I think we can all agree that eating is fun. Not only is it a way for us to socialize, reward ourselves and comfort ourselves, it also is the one area of fitness where people have the most trouble. Wouldn’t it be great to know that the choices you make are actually helping your fitness program? More importantly, wouldn’t it be even better to banish the word “diet” from your vocabulary? Chances are, if you are embarking on a “diet”, it will have a beginning and an end. The end is usually followed by slowly going back to old habits and ends you right back where you started. With our clients, we really encourage them to focus on a Lifestyle Change with room for “cheat meals” and realistic goals; which inevitably lead to lifelong results and without the emotional roller coaster of a diet.

Core/Conditioning Training’s List of “Fat Burning Foods”

eggs

low-fat dairy

Eggs are high in protein and low in calories. You may have heard all the warnings about eggs and your health: opt for eggwhites for the low-cholesterol, fatburning effect. Eggs also contain the vitamin B-12, a great supplement for breaking down fat cells.

Studies show that women who eat low-fat dairy products (such as non-fat yogurt and low-fat milk) three to four times a day lost 70 percent more fat than low-dairy dieters.

beans

oatmeal

Beans are one of the best sources of protein, fiber and iron. Some of the best beans to ear are: • Navy Beans • White Beans • Kidney Beans • Lima Beans

Oatmeal is loaded with soluble fiber, which helps reduce blood cholesterol by flushing those bad digestive acids out of your system. Skip the flavored oatmeals - you lose out on all the health benefits. If you must sweeten your oatmeal, do so by adding fruit.

olive oil

lean meats

Certain fats are good for you, and your body needs them. Olive oil is one of those “good fats.” It helps you burn fat and keeps your cholesterol down. One ounce of extra virgin olive oil contains about 85% of the daily value for monosaturated fat.

Search for lean meats - chicken (baked, broiled, grilled), fish and turkey - which are all high in protein. It is a good rule of thumb to consume at least one half-gram protein per pound of body weight each day. A chicken breast gets you well on your way, with about 22 grams of protein.

whole grains

interval training

Our body needs carbohydrates, despite what the fad diets tell you. Avoid processed carbohydrates such as white breads, bagles, pastas and white rice and look for whole grains that have not been processed and contain the fiber and minerals your body needs.

Interval training is defined as short, repeated bouts of intense exercise with minimal rest. You can burn major calories and get an all-over workout in less than 30 minutes. When you see people who are “cut,” chances ar they are partaking in interval training.
