The Edina School Board discussed renewing its capital project referendum Monday, June 20, at a rate more than four times the amount of the expiring levy. Currently, Edina collects about $1 million in taxes a year specifically for technology projects. That levy expires in 2012. It would be replaced by a $4.5 million annual levy for the next 10 years if approved by voters. The board is expected to authorize the technology refer-

Charges from multiple jurisdictions expected BY KATIE MINTZ • SUN NEWSPAPERS The suspect in a handful of recent Edina burglaries involving cut phone lines is in custody and will likely face multiple charges in multiple jurisdictions. Stewart Eugene Pesheck, 42, of Minneapolis was charged Friday, June 10, in Hennepin County District Court with one felony count of second-degree attempt-

ed burglary in relation to a Minneapolis incident. He is being held in Hennepin County Jail. Edina police Det. Dave Carlson confirmed Pesheck is the suspect in seven Edina burglaries that occurred between April 1 and May 31. Carlson said he was awaiting forensic evidence in the Edina cases. “I’m in the process of preparing the cases to be presented to the Hennepin County Attorney’s Office for charging,” Carlson said. The Edina Police Department worked with the Hennepin County Sheriff’s Office and the Minneapolis and Maplewood police departments to apprehend Pesheck, he said. Maplewood Police Department Deputy Chief Dave Kvam said his department arrested Pesheck Thursday, June 9, in south Minneapolis while executing a search warrant on a home and vehicle. He said there was also a warrant for Pesheck’s arrest from another jurisdiction in an unrelated case. “We became aware of him as a suspect in one of our burglaries due to work done by Edina,” Kvam said. According to Kvam, Edina police recovered property linked to a Maplewood burglary during its investigation. When Maplewood executed the search warrant, they also recovered “stolen property that seems to relate to crimes in other cities in the west metro in Edina and Minneapolis,” Kvam said. Kvam said Maplewood’s case is still under investigation and will be submitted to the Ramsey County Attorney’s Office for potential charges. He said he is not aware of other Maplewood burglaries that are connected to the suspect. Last month, the Minneapolis Police Department asked for help identifying a man responsible for “at least five sophisticated high-end burglaries” in that city since

January. The Minneapolis cases also involved compromised alarm systems. It was unclear if the Minneapolis Police Department would pursue charges in additional burglaries. A call to spokesman Sgt. William Palmer was not immediately returned. According to the criminal complaint: Homeowners on the 2600 block of Lake of the Isles Parkway East in Minneapolis called Minneapolis police Tuesday, April 26, after finding their exterior video surveillance system tampered with as well as the phone line cut. The surveillance system recorded a suspicious person approach the front door and ring the doorbell at approximately 10:35 a.m. A few minutes later the man walked around the home, reached up and removed a security camera near the patio door. About an hour later he returned to the service door and attempted to remove the security camera while covering his face with his hand. He was unsuccessful and is seen leaving the scene shortly after. Officers published still photos of the suspect from the video. Five individuals called and identified the suspect as Pesheck. One caller said Pesheck was storing stolen goods in a garage in St. Louis Park. Edina Police Department officers observed Pesheck at the storage facility. A subsequent search resulted in the recovery of stolen property and papers in his name. Another caller who identified Pesheck told officers he changed his appearance after seeing himself in the videos. Edina officers confirmed this, noting during surveillance he had orange hair. Edina police initially described the suspect with black hair. Officers made contact with the Department of Corrections, Shakopee, where Pesheck’s girlfriend currently resides and found he mailed her a newspaper clipping describing high-end burglaries where police had released surveillance images of a suspect.

Long visits Edina homes for ‘Chat with the Chief’ New program helps police chief, residents understand crime in the city BY KATIE MINTZ • SUN NEWSPAPERS Don’t be alarmed if Edina Police Chief Jeff Long wants to have a little chat. He made house calls across Edina this spring for his first-ever “Chat with the Chief ” events. About a half-dozen residents signed their neighborhoods up for the informal visits in May and June. “It’s just been a really positive experience,” he said. Long, an Edina native who has held numerous positions in the police department, said he understands local quality of life issues like speeding and theft. He wants his fellow residents to know police care. “I just want to get out in the community and hear people’s concerns,” he said. “I want to tell them what we’re doing as a police department and I want them to feel like this is their police department. I’m a real person and I’m accessible.” Brant and Jennifer Haenel invited Long KAREL SMITH 612-986-3704

in the neighborhood where many small children reside, including their kids ages 5 and 3. “This is a busy street. It’s too busy for a neighborhood filled with kids,” said Brant Haenel. Introducing Long to her neighbors, Jennifer Haenel said it was time to stop complaining and start doing something about it. She said she didn’t expect Long to fix problems over night, but was glad for the opportunity to talk about steps toward a solution. The former Minneapolis resident said she appreciated his effort to meet informally with community members. “It feels like a small town when this kind of stuff happens,” she said. Long said traffic is the No. 1 concern he hears in Edina. He made traffic enforcement the top priority when he became chief about a year and a half ago. He said 35 officers on regular patrol write about 24,000 citations a year while performing a number of other duties. “That’s a lot of tickets,” he told the group. “Somebody is being aggressive, but I don’t think it’s the police department. It’s

What’s up? The sun, moon and odd asteroids Are you already a little weary of lawn care this summer but like to be outside? Just don’t look down and out. Switch to up and above. Here’s some information about the sun and moon you’ll see, along with something you can’t: asteroids approaching. The sun: The summer solstice, which occurred 12:16 p.m. Tuesday, June 21, isn’t actually a sun activity. It’s the moment of the year here when the Earth’s northern hemisphere is tilted at its greatest angle towards the sun. As our planet is careening through its yearly path around the sun, going along at almost 67,000 mph, the Earth’s axis tilts a bit more toward the sun as late June approaches. It’s that moredirect angle that brings us the longer daytime light. The southern hemisphere, of course, now tilts away, experiencing winter. Are we also closer to the sun

JEANNIE K. HANSON Friends of the Edina Nature Center

in summertime? No. The Earth is actually at its closest position to the sun in early January (the perihelion) and at its farthest in early July (the aphelion). The moon: Even our metro area’s artificial light, which drowns out most of the stars, allows us the dazzling moon. It has a bit of drama in June, too. In June comes the day when the moon is at its farthest position from us – 251,208 miles – of the year, its apogee. The moon also holds a record. No other such satellite is so close in size to its planet. The moon is about onefourth the size of Earth. The story of how the moon formed relates to this size ratio

(more on that in a minute) and acquired another chapter in early 2005 when a small piece of the moon – fewer than 3 inches across – was found here on Earth. It had lain in the desert of Oman for about 9,700 years after having orbited the Earth for about 340,000 years before that. These dates could be determined because it was known that a huge meteorite had hit the moon and blasted out many pieces that long ago. They swung around in the Earth’s orbit until some were reined in by our gravity. Once on the ground in Oman, the characteristic radioactivity of this little moon-bit decayed, and at a knowable rate, to yield the 9,700 years-ago date. The longer story of how the moon got here in the first place has had a solid hypothesis for a long time. A Mars-sized object probably smacked into the early Earth more than 4 billion years ago. This was a time of fierce and

frequent bombardment in the solar system. That major collision whacked off a big chunk of “us” and presto, our moon. Some variant explanations are now under investigation by astronomers, but no new news yet. Odd asteroids: Unlike the high profile sun and Earth’s moon, the asteroids of the solar system aren’t visible “sky décor” to our naked eye. And we hope they never become this visible, because a few of them are coming right towards us. Yes, 1,224 of these asteroids are on a path that will lead them close to the Earth. “Close” means within 4 or 5 million miles, at best estimate. A few of these will come much closer. In July to September of 2011, for example, eight of these asteroids will pass within three times to 75 times as close as we are to the moon. Their orbits could alter slightly along the way. Yes, these and others are being watched very carefully.

Weiman is president of the Edina High School Thespian Boosters.

But every generation has had its challenges, some far greater than ours, and we can take heart that these United States have endured. And let us never forget that far greater sacrifices than ours have been made, some ultimate, to ensure it. Our founders handed to us this great experiment of liberty and self-government. It is not easy, and often it is not pretty. But it works. In spite of all our faults, in spite of all its flaws, our country was built on timeless truths, and the line between liberty and order was placed just right. It balanced power in just the right ways. It offers more justice and opportunity than any other country before or since.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Support for EHS theater appreciated To the editor: On behalf of the Edina Thespian Boosters and the entire cast of “Anything Goes,” thank you to the community for a terrific show of support at the benefit performance Friday, June 17. The one-night encore performance was widely publicized through local and state media, including the Sun-Current. The turn out to support this nationally acclaimed performance by a very talented high school group was amazing. The show, held on Edina High School Theater Day as proclaimed by Gov. Mark Dayton, began at 7:30 p.m. with standing room only available.

Donations were accepted at the door and reflected the generous community support in helping defray the significant costs of getting the cast, crew, musicians, set and equipment to the International Thespian Festival held last week at the University of Nebraska in Lincoln. Thank you to several local businesses for your support – Logistics International and Lifetouch Photography for donation of the truck to transport the set and equipment, Allegra Print in Edina for the programs, Franklin Street Bakery for cookies during the intermission and to all of our season advertisers. It was a wonderful event and a genuine show of community support. Rosanne Weiman Edina

Count blessings this Fourth of July To the editor: Happy Fourth of July, Edina! One could argue there isn’t much that is “happy” going on these days, but that means our Fourth of July celebration is perfectly timed. Yes, every natural disaster now comes right into our living rooms. There are wars and rumors of wars. Budget disagreements and risk of a state government shutdown frustrate us. Economic recovery avoids us, and government deficits and debt sit at our doorstep.

City of Edina preparing for potential state shutdown City, schools, hospital face loss of services, payments BY KATIE MINTZ • SUN NEWSPAPERS Amid buzz about a potential state government shutdown, the city of Edina took a step to keep electrical permits moving. The Edina City Council unanimously approved an ordinance allowing the city to issue and inspect electrical permits Tuesday, June 21. Previously, electrical permits in Edina were issued by the Minnesota Department of Labor and Industry, and inspected by a state-contracted electrical inspector. But without a state budget agreement in place by Friday, July 1, that department and many other state agencies would be temporarily shutdown. The Minnesota Constitution requires the Legislature and governor to sign off on appropriations before any money can be spent in the new fiscal year. Democratic-Farmer-Labor Gov. Mark Dayton and the Republican-majority Legislature failed to agree on nearly all spending for the 2012-2013 biennium before the end of the regular session. Budget meetings were scheduled in the days before the deadline, but at press time, only funding for the Department of Agriculture was in place. “This is an easy way to mitigate that problem,” Edina City Manager Scott Neal said. Minnesota law allows cities to issue permits and perform inspections when authorized by such an ordinance. If necessary, the city will arrange electrical inspections with its current contract inspector. There would be no cost to the city, Neal said, because applicants pay for the inspection. He said the city might actually make money collecting a permit fee, however, doesn’t plan to stay in the electrical permitting business. The city will return to the use of state issued permits and inspections once a potential shutdown has been resolved. But not all solutions are as easy. If a budget deal is not reached by the deadline, the severity of impacts on the city, Edina Public Schools and other local organizations that receive state funds

and services will depend on what, if any, state services are deemed essential, and how long the shutdown lasts. On Thursday, June 23, Ramsey District Court Chief Judge Kathleen Gearin heard arguments in the budget dispute, ranging from Attorney General Lori Swanson’s petition to allow state officials to determine what services are essential to Dayton’s request for courtordered mediation. Gearin said she would decide the following week whether or not to provide a mechanism to keep some state programs running. No ruling had been made at presstime. During the last government shutdown, which lasted eight days in 2005, main essential services that continued receiving funds included prisons, state-run hospitals, law enforcement and power plants. Neal said the city of Edina would not be impacted financially – the city does not receive Local Government Aid from the state like others – but would miss some state services. “Some of the concerns we have already are related to driver and vehicle services and how we’ll continue to access that information,” he said. “That impacts our police department.” He said he believes the most significant impact in Edina would not be a function of city government, but the delay of work on the Interstate 494 and Highway 169 interchange reconstruction, a major regional project. State road projects across Minnesota would be halted. For Edina Public Schools, which receives 70 percent of its funding from the state, there are monetary concerns, especially in a prolonged shutdown. Margo Nash, director of business services, said the district could stand to miss its July state payment, but it would be difficult to go without the more significant August and September payments. The district spends about $7 million a month in the general fund. “We’re hopeful that we will not go into a shutdown but if we do, when we’ll begin stressing is when we get to that September month,” Supt. Ric Dressen said. The district recently approved its 2011-2012 budget with an 8 percent unreserved fund balance to help with cash flow. Dressen said the district was also looking at other options, like collective SHUTDOWN: TO NEXT PAGE

Shutdown FROM PREVIOUS PAGE short-term borrowing with others districts. He said a big detriment would be loss of the Minnesota Department of Education as a resource. Staff was busy making sure teachers’ licenses are up to date – they must be renewed every seven years – and state reports were complete before July 1. Dressen said he also sent a letter to the department Monday, June 20,

encouraging the completion of its review of a building addition at South View Middle School. The district hopes to get the OK to bid the project soon. Work was initially slated to begin this fall and be ready for the 2012-2013 school year to relieve overcrowding. Private business seeking liquor and catering licenses, or other items needing state agency review, would also likely be out of luck during a shutdown. Fairview Health Services spokesperson Ryan Davenport said Fairview Southdale Hospital in Edina, and other health care providers, could be at risk of losing reimbursements from state health insurance plans.

“Certainly the hope is that this will be resolved or the processing of those Medicaid and MinnesotaCare claims would continue in the event of shutdown,” Davenport said, noting Fairview believes those payments should be an essential service. He said the hospital would not shut its doors or turn patients away, and is encouraging people to continue seeking the proper level of care. If a shutdown is extended, he said Fairview would have to “reassess and make some changes and adjustments,” like putting capital projects on hold and watching discretionary spending.

Change to Waters project going to public hearings Requested site plan amendment tentatively on July 13 Planning Commission agenda BY KATIE MINTZ • SUN NEWSPAPERS The controversial Waters Senior Living project will go through another round of public hearings this summer. The Edina City Council recently found that a proposed site plan amendment requires a new public process. Waters is partnering with Colonial Church to construct a 139-unit facility just north of Highway 62 adjacent to the church. The project saw hours of heated testimony last year ending with 3-2 approval by a divided city council. Now, the developer wants to shrink a central common area by 28 feet in width, as well as eliminate 39 parking spaces. The savings would allow the company to subsidize housing for lowincome seniors in seven units, said Jay Jensen, principal and senior vice president with Waters. The site plan amendment was first discussed Tuesday, June 7. City council policy requires any site plan changes be brought to the council for consideration. If determined to be minor, section 850.04 of the zoning code states the “changes may be authorized by the planner,” but “proposed changes to the approved site plan affecting structural types, building coverage, mass, intensity or height, allocation of open space and all other changes which affect the overall design of the property shall be acted on, reviewed and processed by the commission and council in the same manner as they reviewed and processed the site plan.” On Tuesday, June 21, the council voted 4-0, Councilmember Mary Brindle absent, to send the proposed amendment back to the Edina Planning Commission. “Subsequent to the June 7 meeting, we had a dialogue with our city attorney who thinks because there could be multiple interpretations [of the code], that the safest route would be to send it back to the planning commission as a proposed amendment to the original site plan,” Mayor Jim Hovland said.

The planning commission public hearing is tentatively scheduled 7 p.m. Wednesday, July 13, at Edina City Hall, 4801 W. 50th St. If a recommendation is made that night, it would go before the city council 7 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 3. Both groups will also consider preliminary and final plats at the meetings. Councilmember Josh Sprague said he disagreed that the language in the zoning code was vague and open to interpretation. “When I went back to reread this it simply said proposed changes affecting... building coverage and mass. Because this project changes both, it must go back per the ordinance,” Sprague said. Councilmember Ann Swenson suggested the city clarify what constitutes a minor change by adding an objective measure, like a certain percentage difference, in the future. “Right now it’s anything to be honest,” she said. “You could read any change into that ordinance.” Councilmember Joni Bennett, who was the lone vote two weeks before against tabling the item, said she was happy to have fellow council members now agree that the requested change had to be sent back to public hearings. She said she wants “particular attention paid to the parking issue.” After removing 39 spaces, Waters will have 124 remaining spaces, exceeding the 76 required for its PRD5 zoning – a planned residential district for “rest homes, convalescent homes and nursing homes” – based on an estimated 169 residents. Bennett, who argued last summer for a different zoning classification, said the parking standard for PRD-5 is supposed to be determined based on the number of beds in a licensed facility. Because Waters’ assisted living model does not require nursing home licensing, the number was instead based on the developer’s projection. Bennett said there is a chance the 139 units house as many as 278 seniors. “Looking at that possibility, I don’t think we do have sufficient parking with the number of spaces that are proposed to be lost,” Bennett said. Jensen said following the meeting the zoning and parking concerns brought up by project opponents are a “red herring” to keep it from moving WATERS: TO PAGE 25

Edina Girl Scouts receive Gold Awards Edina residents Mikayla La Haye, Anna Coleman, Katherine Landreville and Rebecca Salter recently completed Girl Scout Gold Award projects to earn the highest Girl Scout award. Mikayla’s original Girl Scout Gold Award project included building a shelter at Edina High School to protect athletic equipment from the elements. When faced with a significant obstacle to her project, she redirected her efforts to improve an existing structure to serve a similar purpose. Storage is now available for all sports teams and the physical education department. For their Girl Scout Gold Award project, Anna and Katherine increased awareness about the importance of donating blood among teens. They organized a blood drive at a local coffee shop and invited live bands

to perform throughout the day to encourage more young people to give blood. As an active member of her school’s theater program, for her Gold Award project Rebecca renovated three rooms at Edina High School to return them to their original purpose as dressing rooms. During construction at the school, the rooms were used for a nurse’s office. Rebecca developed a design plan, recruited volunteers, and implemented a complete renovation to create greenroom space for the theater. Girl Scouts of Minnesota and Wisconsin River Valleys recently honored the 136 Gold Award recipients at ceremonies in Owatonna and Minneapolis. About 10 percent of the council’s eligible Girl Scouts achieve their Girl Scout Gold Award – twice the national Girl Scouts of the USA average.

Letters FROM PAGE 6 So let’s deal honestly with our problems, but more importantly on this Fourth of July holiday we do even better to consider: for what were our veterans willing to pay the ultimate price? It is the perfect time to count our country’s blessings and reconnect to its greatest attributes as we face the challenges ahead. Rep. Keith Downey, R-41A Edina

Good work toward education reform To the editor: I wanted to publicly recognize Rep. Keith Downey for his strong leadership on early education reform at the Minnesota Capitol this year. Half of Minnesota kids aren’t prepared for kindergarten, and so we need to reform

the current pre-K system to maintain Minnesota’s economic competitiveness and quality of life into the future (as well as do the right thing for our children). In the course of fighting for these reforms, I’ve seen firsthand that Downey has led the way in promoting the Parent Aware Ratings to help parents find the best places for preparing children for kindergarten, as well as scholarships to help low-income kids access high quality early education. As a parent and a CEO of a global business, it’s heartening to see such tremendous leadership on reforms that are so important to Minnesota’s future. Downey has been a consistent advocate and has worked with two of our other local leaders, Sen. Geoff Michel and Rep. Jenifer Loon, to bring needed improvement in this very important part of our education system. Our community should be proud of our local leadership on this critically important issue.

The documentary, which was nominated for an Academy Award, examines the safety of a natural gas extraction technique known as hydraulic fracturing or fracking. People in several states reported

that their tap water became flammable after fracking was done near their homes. Fracking has greatly expanded in recent years, due in part because natural gas drilling was exempted from the Safe Drinking Water Act of 2005.

Minnehaha Creek clean-up July 10 Volunteers from across the Twin Cities are needed for the fifth annual Minnehaha Creek Clean-up Sunday, July 10. The Minnehaha Creek Watershed District is teaming up with the Jacob Leinenkugel Brewing Company to collect two tons of trash along the creek and around nearby lakes. The event begins 9 a.m. with a free bagel breakfast for the first 250 volunteers to arrive at Lake Hiawatha where it meets Minnehaha Creek, 46th Street and 28th Avenue, in Minneapolis. After breakfast, volunteers can take buses to locations along the creek in Minneapolis, Edina, St. Louis

Park and Hopkins to collect trash. Buses will run in a route to stops along the creek. “We’re going to try to cover as much ground as possible because we want to double our goal,” Telly Mamayek, communications manager for the watershed, said. “Last year we collected just over one ton with 600 volunteers.” At noon, volunteers will return to Lake Hiawatha where the garbage will be weighed. Leinenkugel’s will provide a barbecue picnic. There will also be prizes for kids, including an award for the most candy wrappers collected, and prizes for adults. The event is free and open to all. Leinenkugel’s beer will be served to those 21 and older with a valid ID. RSVP at LiveGreenTwinCities.com.

AirBroom Minnesota In Excelsior Can Help

How does your chimney look? Are the bricks crumbling? Does it have White or Black exterior staining? Are you afraid to use your fireplace because you’re not sure how safe it is? When was the last time you used it? The professionals at AirBroom Minnesota Fireplace and Air Duct Cleaning in Excelsior can restore both your confidence and your chimney. Did you know that water causes more damage to masonry chimneys than fire? Your chimney, unlike other parts of your house, is constantly exposed to the elements. They are generally constructed of brick, mortar, tile, steel, and iron. All of these materials suffer deterioration as a result of prolonged contact with water. Freeze and thaw cycles so familiar here in the Twin Cities cause stress on the chimney. Water that has penetrated expands and contracts. Left unchecked it will cause interior and exterior damage to your home and masonry chimney. Some of the damage that can be caused includes: 1) spalled and broken exterior brickwork, 2) deteriorated masonry and metal firebox assemblies, 3) rusted dampers, 4) decayed mortar, cracked or missing flue liners, and in the worst case scenario damage to adjoining walls, ceilings, woodwork. and There are three main ways to prevent water damage. 1) Install a chimney cap. This is the most inexpensive measure to prevent water penetration to the flue and inside chimney elements. We sell and install locally manufactured caps for as little as $99. 2) Repair or replace a damaged chimney crown. The crown sits atop your chimney and covers and seals it from the flue liners to the chimney edge. Many chimneys are built with an inadequate crown constructed from common mortar mix. Mortar is not designed for and will not withstand years of prolonged moisture exposure without cracking and chipping which allows water to penetrate the chimney. A proper crown

is constructed of a Portland cement mixture and formed to provide an overhang drip edge. This assures the water will shed helping to prevent erosion in the mortar and brick of the chimneys surfaces. Keeping the crown “watertight” and shedding away from the sponge like masonry elements that the chimney is built of is the most important element to preventing deterioration. At AirBroom Minnesota we use the industry leading line of Saver products to build and repair chimneys. Use of these products allows us to pass on manufacturers material warranties of up to 15 years to our clients. 3) Waterproof your masonry chimney and crown. Most masonry is porous and will absorb large amounts of water. Brick acts like a sponge absorbing water and wicking it to the chimney interior. Products we use are specifically developed for use as waterproofing agents on masonry chimneys. These are vapor permeable – which means they allow the masonry to breath out but not in. This allows water that has penetrated the chimney to escape while preventing additional water from entering from the outside. Non vapor permeable sealers commonly available should never be used because they trap moisture inside actually accelerating deterioration. We use a special permeable sealer with a 10 year consumer warranty to protect your chimney. Doing this before deterioration occurs can save you hundreds or even thousands of dollars in future repairs. Water damage to chimneys is usually a slow subtle process. The problem is generally not obvious until it has become quite serious. Although these prevention measures may cost you a few dollars they can save you a lot more by preventing large future masonry repairs. The Hartmann’s at AirBroom Minnesota in Excelsior offer free no obligation repair estimates in the Western Metro area. Call John, Jim, or Lynda today to arrange a free no obligation estimate. Visit us at AirBroomMinnesota.com or call us at 952.545.2254. As a bonus, repair jobs over $750 scheduled with us prior to May 31st receive $100 off when you mention this article.

EDUCATION NOTES Edina High School ranks 76th in nation Edina High School was recently ranked 76 out of 500 high schools in Newsweek’s 2011 list of the best high schools in America. Among the top 500 schools, nine Minnesota high schools received honors. Edina was the only school in Minnesota to rank in the top 100. “The recognition for our high school is a compliment to our entire community,” Edina Public Schools Supt. Ric Dressen said. “I realize our students’ success that leads to national honors comes from a team effort. Students, staff, parents and community members all give their very best starting in our early education programs and culminating at graduation.” The list, compiled every year by Newsweek, was revamped this year to include a new research methodology focusing on a wider range of criteria to reflect the overall level of pre-

HIGH SCHOOL REUNIONS paredness for college and beyond. Newsweek surveyed over 10,000 public high schools across the country, with 1,100 schools considered for the final list of 500 schools. The rankings were based on a composite of graduation rate, college matriculation rate, Advanced Placement tests taken per graduate, average SAT/ACT scores, average AP/IB/AICE scores, and AP courses offered. Edina earned its rank of 76 with a 99 percent graduation rate, 94 percent college matriculation rate, average SAT score of 1,887, and average AP test score of 3.7. The figures used in the rankings were from the 20092010 school year. Other Minnesota schools making the list: Mahtomedi High School (158), Lakeville North High School (178), Century High School (210), Eden Prairie High School (213), St. Louis Park Senior High School (248), Andover High School (364), Apple Valley High School (451) and Simley High School (478).

Edina Sun-Current – Thursday, June 30, 2011 – www.minnlocal.com

Parade FROM PAGE 1 school in 1949, Edina students attended grades K-9 at Wooddale, Morningside or Cahill schools and then had their choice of high schools in Minneapolis and St. Louis Park. In its first year, the new high school served grades 7-11. Members of the class of 1951 were given the option of entering as juniors or finishing their high school careers where they started. Seniors were not asked to attend the school for their final year. Cardarelle of Edina said he remembers a lot of buzz about the building. Originally, there was talk about locating the high school in the Country Club District, but the residents in the area weren’t on board, he said. The selected site, just off what is now Highway 100 in central Edina, seemed an odd choice. The first Edina school later became Edina East High School and is now the Edina Community Center, 5701 Normandale Road.

In the Community, With the Community, For the Community

Fourth of July open house, fireworks roles in Edina’s history. The Grange was the site of the community’s 1888 election to secede from Richfield and form the independent village of Edina. The annual Edina fireworks display, presented by Fairview Southdale Hospital, will begin 10 p.m. at Rosland Park, 4300 W. 66th St.

Following the parade, there will be an open house until 1 p.m. at Frank Tupa Park, 4918 Eden Ave. Visitors can tour two of Edina’s oldest structures – Cahill School, a one-room school that served southwest Edina from 1864 to 1958, and Minnehaha Grange No. 398, built in 1873. Both buildings served important

opened, there were empty rooms, Jordan said, but by the 1970s, there was a need to build a second high school in the city. As the oldest students in the new school, the class of 1951 was involved with the selection of the school colors and mascot. Cardarelle said they were blue and gold at Wooddale School, but Wayzata already had a claim to those colors in their sports conference. Green was selected instead. Among the juniors there was a consensus on the eagle as a mascot. “There were more seventh graders than us and we got voted out,”

“It was way out in the country,” said classmate Bill Jordan, now of Minnetonka. Jordan, who is organizing reunion festivities including a bus tour of the city and celebration at Edina Country Club, said at the time, Edina was mostly farmland and even had a small stockyard. “We used to count pheasants on the telephone line in the morning,” Jordan said. The first graduating class was only 114-strong, but Edina was growing by the day in the post-World War II suburban boom. When the high school

Cardarelle said. “They liked the buzzy hornets.” The first year, Edina lacked its own track, football and baseball fields, so they used facilities at St. Louis Park. Still, Edina’s winning sports tradition started that year with a first place finish by Dave Ryerse in the state track and field meet. Cardarelle, who played football, said the team even won a game against Mound without any seniors. Olson said in addition to the historic grand marshals, the parade planned by a committee of volunteers and sponsored by the Edina Community Foundation will honor veterans. Close to 200 from around the Twin Cities will march in the parade and are also invited to attend a dinner the night before the parade. Other draws include clowns, jugglers, bands, mounted police and more. Olson said the parade takes a lot of work but is his favorite community event. “To be able to go up and down 50th Street and see 15,000 kids and parents all line up and see their smiles and the sheer happiness on a beautiful summer day is worth it,” he said.

Bandits take the lead The Bloomington Bandits are off to a flying start in the Riverview Amateur Baseball League. In addition to being undefeated at 6-0 in league play, the Bandits are 16-1 overall. Pitching has been the team’s strength throughout the first half of the season. Cliff Christopherson has a 5-0 record while teammate Josh Gist is 4-0 with 33 strikeouts in 26 innings. Upcoming games of interest feature the Edina ESOX against the Minnetonka Millers at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, June 30, at Minnetonka’s Veterans Field and the Northwest Suburbs Redhawks against Bloomington at 8 p.m. Tuesday, July 5, at Red Haddox Field in Bloomington. The Bandits will play their biggest game to date when they face second-place Minnetonka at 7:30 p.m. Sunday, July 10, at Minnetonka’s Veterans Field. A lot could change by then, but it looks as if Bloomington and Minnetonka might battle it out until the end. St. Louis Park, a perennial contender, will be in the mix as well. Minnetonka had just one loss in Riverview League play going into this week’s action.

Canterbury fireworks Canterbury Park will offer a fireworks display plus a pair of stakes races Sunday, July 3. Post time is 4 p.m. Children’s activities include pony rides, face painting and a petting zoo. Race fans can wager on a full-race program including the $35,000 Shot of Gold and the $50,000 Blair’s Cove Stakes races. Fireworks follow the final races and are accompanied by music. Another holiday racing card will be Monday, July 4, at the Shakopee track. Post time is 1:30 p.m. Free hot dogs will be served. The racing card features the $35,000 Minnesota HBPA Mile and $50,000 Dean Kutz Derby. There also will be a hot dog eating contest and wiener dog races. – COMPILED BY GREG KLEVEN AND JOHN SHERMAN

Former Lake rivals reunite as all-star football captains Hankinson, Peterson played together in ’60s with Golden Gophers BY JOHN SHERMAN • SUN NEWSPAPERS Back in the late 1950s and early 1960s, the fiercest of all Lake Conference football rivalry featured Edina and Robbinsdale. The quarterbacks of those teams, John Hankinson of Edina and Larry Peterson of Robbinsdale, were reunited last weekend as honorary captains in the Minnesota High School All-Star Football Game. It was like old home week for the longtime friends, who played football together at the University of Minnesota. But they haven’t forgotten how much they wanted

to beat each other during their high school years. “We were bitter enemies in high school,” said Peterson. “Nothing was more important than beating Edina. John was always a better passer than I was, but I was the better runner. Edina passed more than we did. Our coach, Irv Nerdahl, had big backs and liked to use them.” “Back then, it was the real Lake Conference,” said Hankinson. “Each town had only one high school.” The rivalry is a distant memory today, although Hankinson and Peterson are not at a loss to remember some of the key details, including the 14-14 tie they played as seniors in the fall of 1960. “There were more than 5,000 fans CAPTAINS: TO NEXT PAGE

The Edina ESOX amateur baseball team is younger and more athletic with the addition of several college ballplayers. Coach Denny Scanlon’s 2011 squad has a 5-8 record with the midpoint of the season approaching. It’s a decent start considering the ESOX lost two Riverview AllStars, Erik Quarberg and Bobby Gregorie, to other teams. The ESOX have most of their nucleus back from last year and have also picked up three players from the disbanded Richfield amateur team – outfielders Erik Nelson and Andy Bartz and catcher Kyle McDermott. Nelson and Bartz are Edina High graduates who have been playing baseball at St. Olaf College in Northfield. They are starting in the ESOX outfield along with former Eden Prairie High standout J.T. Canakes. McDermott is sharing ESOX catching duties with newcomer Jack Scheckinger, another Edina High graduate. Scanlon said he’s happy to have a veteran like McDermott on the squad. “Kyle has been playing town ball since 2002,” said Scanlon. The other key veteran is first baseman Robert “Reggie” Dunlop, a graduate of Concordia University in St. Paul. Dunlop is one of those players who’ll do anything to help the team, whether it is pitching a couple of innings or being the designated hitter for a game or two, Scanlon said. With Dunlop in the infield are Kirk Kenneally at second base, Brashad Johnson at shortstop and Sean Borman at third base. Borman,a four-year all-conference player at Hopkins High, is another young player with big-time potential, Scanlon noted. The ESOX pitching staff might not be as deep as it has been in the past, but veteran Mark Schroeder is a solid arm at the head of the rotation. The other key pitchers are Danny Smith, an Edina High grad who is now playing at Luther College, and Hopkins High grad Erik Olson, who now pitches at St. Olaf. Blake graduate and St. Olaf player Stu Martin is also on the pitching staff.

FROM PREVIOUS PAGE watching us that night,” said Peterson. “We needed a police escort just to get to the stadium [Mielke Field],” Hankinson added. Each man said he felt his team should have won in 1960. Peterson mentioned that one of his runs that night was inadvertently blown dead. Hankinson recalled how his 97-yard kickoff return for an Edina touchdown was nullified by a penalty. Their rivalry extended to the basketball court, where they often guarded each other. “We might not have liked each other then, because of the rivalry, but now we’re the best of friends,” said Hankinson. Playing together with the Golden Gophers was the main building block for their friendship. Although both competed for the starting quarterback position, they worked together to make the team better, Peterson said. “The only place I was going was Minnesota,” said Peterson. “It didn’t hurt that they were national champions.” “Everything about the U was great … my teammates, coach Murray Warmath, the educational opportunities,” said Hankinson, a long-time Edina resident. “I remember the quarterback meetings with Murray every morning at 7:30. If you didn’t answer a question correctly, he might hit you with a piece of chalk.” Hankinson added that Warmath, who was known publicly as a tough coach, was actually a warm, friendly man that the players loved. “Sometimes we weren’t fully awake for those quarterback meetings,” said Peterson. “Probably because we were up late studying the night before.” “I would sometimes go by Murray’s window late at night and see the projector flickering in the window,” said Hankinson. “He was always well prepared.” As they watched the high school all-stars practice at TCF Bank Stadium last week, the former Gopher quarterbacks marveled at the setting. “We never had anything like this,” said Hankinson, who went on from college to play for the Minnesota Vikings. What the Gophers did have in the 1960s was Memorial Stadium, which was also known at the Brick House. Hankinson and Peterson were sorry to see the old stadium being torn down, but at the same time, they’re impressed by the progress reflected in the new stadium. Hankinson and Peterson were thankful to be named honorary captains for the all-star game. What does an honorary captain do? “We aren’t connected with either team [the North or the South],” said Peterson. “And we aren’t coaching. We just went out there and got our introduction at halftime of the game.” The North All-Stars defeated the South 17-7. Hopkins quarterback Billy Gregg threw a touchdown pass for the South. David Boegel, Aaron Roth and Sean Hamlin played for the victorious North squad. No Edina players competed in this year’s game.

Edina Legion posts 10-5 mark Post 471 splits on its northern excursion BY JOHN SHERMAN • SUN NEWSPAPERS Edina’s American Legion baseball team is off to a good start with a 3-1 record in South Hennepin League play. With only 10 league games on the schedule, Edina knows the importance of winning every time out. Actually, new head coach Nick Kennedy is looking for wins in every game, non-league as well as league. There is no game that he considers an exhibition. So far, Edina has defeated Hopkins, Excelsior and Richfield in league play. The only South Hennepin loss was to Wayzata. At the Grand Rapids Invitational last weekend, Edina went 2-2. The tournament started with Post 471 thumping the team

from Marble/Greenway 12-2. Jake Remes was the winning pitcher. Grand Rapids took a 5-0 lead over Edina and went on to win 7-6 in the second game. “We made some mental mistakes, but I liked the way we battled back,” said Kennedy. Northfield laid down a suicidesqueeze bunt to beat Edina 4-3. Edina finished strong with a 93 victory over Centennial as James Dean pitched a complete game. “James’ off-speed stuff was really working,” said Kennedy. Several Edina hitters stood out in the tournament. Danny Baer hit a home run against Marble/Greenway. Nick Denn hit four doubles in the tournament, and Spencer Egly also had multiple hits. Denn leads the club with a .565 average. Edina’s record going into this week’s action was 10-5 overall.

Fall basketball league The Twin Cities Fall Boys Basketball League is accepting team and individual applications for 2011. League play will begin Sept. 17-18 at Bloomington Jefferson High School Activity Center. The program is open to players entering grades 6-12 this fall. Information: 612-850-1948 (Bruce Young).

Edina High’s Athletic Hall of Fame continues to grow BY JOHN SHERMAN • SUN NEWSPAPERS When former Edina High School athletic director Steve Dove initiated the EHS Athletic Hall of Fame in 1997, he had no idea what a splendid enterprise it would prove to be. The first class was inducted in October of 1997 at the Marriott Hotel in Minnetonka. Since then, every banquet has been held at one of the Edina country clubs, Edina or Interlachen. At our initial selection meeting in the spring of 1997, the first athlete selected was Jeff Wright. If there was ever a man who represented all that is good in Edina, it is Wright. He made A’s in the classroom while earning All-State honors in football, basketball and baseball. And Jeff was only the start of that historic first class, which included Pacy Erck, John Hankinson, Jim Joslin,

JOHN SHERMAN Edina Sun-Current Sports Editor

Larry Johnson, Tom King, Tom Moe, Greg Olson and Betsy Ready, plus hockey coach Willard Ikola and athletic director Howard Merriman. His career took on almost mythical proportions on the local level when he captained the football team at the University of Minnesota. After that, he became a fixture in the Minnesota Vikings’ secondary. It has been my honor to serve on the hall of fame selection committee since the beginning, and I’ve come to the conclusion that we will never run out of

The Edina 10U Hornets Black Girls Fastpitch Team take 2nd Place in Minnetonka Legacy Classic Tournament. They played hard and waited patiently through repeated downpours and tornado warnings May 21-22, and concluded with a win and loss during the final 2 games on June 8.

viable candidates. This year’s hall of fame selection meeting proved the point. We selected eight new inductees, some of whom I believed were overdue. Take Leo Cabalka, for instance. Leo was one of the first teacher/coaches I met when I started covering Edina sports for the Sun in the fall of 1972, and he was also one of the people who made me feel most welcome. Leo is not with us anymore, but his posthumous hall of fame induction will make a lot of people happy. He had a positive impact on many young people. If the students at Edina-West High had elected a teacher of the year back in the 1970s, Leo might have won it every year. He had a knack for bringing out the best in every student, whether it was in class or on the athletic field.

New hall-of-famers In addition to Cabalka, seven former Edina athletes will be inducted Sept. 29 at Edina Country Club. Mickey Stenson, Class of 1966: The All-State football lineman helped the Hornets win a mythical state championship in his senior season. He also played forward on Edina’s first state championship basketball team in 1966. Doug Hastings, Class of 1969: When the Edina Hornets won their first state hockey championship in 1969 Hastings was the starting goalie. He helped the Hornets topple Warroad 5-4 in overtime in the championship game. Phil Olson, Class of 1975: In his senior year, the Edina athlete won the state discus title. Track and field was not his only sport. Olson was an All-Lake Conference football player and a starting forward on the Edina-East basketball team. He now produces musicals. Karl Mecklenburg, Class of 1978: At Edina-West High, Mecklenburg played football for hall-of-fame coach Stav Canakes. He went on to play collegiate football at Augustana and the University of Minnesota and was picked by Denver in the 12th round of the NFL draft in 1983. For a late-round pick, the Edina linebacker had remarkable success. Mecklenburg played in six Pro Bowls and spent his entire 12-year NFL career

with the Broncos. He is now a motivational speaker. Danny Plante, Class of 1990: Plante moved from Wisconsin to Edina when his mother accepted a job in the Twin Cities area. He immediately had an impact on Edina athletics as a two-sport star in football and hockey. He was named All-State in both sports. Plante went on to play 159 games in the NHL, all of them with the New York Islanders. He is now a sports agent living in Woodbury. Sara Vander Top, Class of 1995: Vander Top followed in the footsteps of early Edina female athletes such as Betsy Ready, Lea Blackwell and Virginia Anderson. A star in both soccer and basketball at Edina High, Vander Top earned a scholarship to play basketball at the University of Illinois. Jenny (Schmidgall) Potter, Class of 1997: As an elementary school student in Edina, Jenny one of the first girls to play tackle football in Edina. She later played in the boys high school hockey program. That was prior to girls hockey becoming an official sport at EHS. Potter became one of the most successful players in the history of USA women’s hockey, competing in four Olympics. Winning medals has become a way of life for the Edina High grad. At the Olympics, she helped the USA win gold in 1998, silver in 2002 and 2010 and bronze in 2006. Potter is still skating with the national team and also competes for the Minnesota Whitecaps women’s team.

Danny Baer hits it deep Local baseball fans should keep their eye on Danny Baer. And when he’s hitting, don’t park your car too close to the outfield fence. At the Grand Rapids American Legion Invitational last weekend, Baer’s hitting was impressive. “Danny hit a three-run homer in the first game against Marble/Greenway,” said Edina Legion coach Nick Kennedy. “It was one of those no-doubters.” Baer shows potential as an outfielder and as a pitcher. In addition to hitting the home run against Marble/Greenway, he pitched two innings in Edina’s 12-2 victory.

Also beware of ads that claim to guarantee loans regardless of credit and note that if a credit repair company does business only over the phone it is illegal to request any money before delivering its service. All funds are based in US dollars. Toll free numbers may or may not reach Canada
