Edina officials discuss coyote problem

Homes Within Reach making ownership possible in west metro

City will continue to educate, refer property owners to wildlife management firms


BY KATIE MINTZ • SUN NEWSPAPERS The city of Edina says education is still the best way to protect pets from coyotes following attacks on two dogs in as many months. Edina Police Chief Jeff Long discussed options for responding to increasing coyote activity at the Tuesday, May 3, City Council meeting. Long said reported coyote sightings have gone up significantly following an attack on a dog near Pamela Park in March – the first ever in the city. Another dog was attacked near

Benefit for 10year-old nonprofit May 23 in Edina For many working families, purchasing a home in one of west Hennepin County’s suburban climes is out of reach. When a job brought Chris and Angie Trailer to the Twin Cities from Iowa last year, they were disappointed to find even several years of savings wouldn’t take them very far. “We had a sizeable down payment,” said Angie. “The problem we kept running into was my husband works in human services and that’s not a big money maker.” Angie, who stays home with kids Kailey, 4, and 2-year-old Ethan, said they couldn’t find a decent house in the area with affordable monthly mortgage payments. Then the property manager at their rental in Bloomington told them about Homes Within Reach. For the last six months they’ve owned a modest ram-

Southdale, Edina City Council meet to talk public funding Council members prefer land purchase over straight subsidy BY KATIE MINTZ • SUN NEWSPAPERS City and Southdale Center officials are working toward a plan to renovate the nation’s oldest indoor regional shopping center. The Edina City Council met with representatives from Indianapolisbased Simon Property Group, Inc., Tuesday, May 3, during a special work session. The city council previously discussed the company’s request for $5.3 million in public financial assistance as part of an approximately $30-million overhaul of the 55-year-old mall. A small majority of council members told Simon they’d rather find a mutually beneficial way to help mall renovations go forward, like purchasing land from the center to meet public needs, than shell out money for cosmetic upgrades.

John Phipps, senior vice president of development for Simon, said the largest mall owner in the country has already committed to making substantial site changes that could improve leasing. They include infrastructure investments in the former Mervyn’s space for new anchor tenant Herberger’s, moving the food court from the third to second floor, and realignment of the corridor leading to JCPenney. But he said other non-income-producing fixes don’t have the desired return on investment to win support from the publicly traded company. “If we partner with the city on that last piece, we can take what we were going to do and along with the city’s help really make a statement there,” said Phipps. Bill Hammer, vice president of development, said Southdale Center is one of 17 “transformational properties” identified by Simon nationwide. As such, the company has OK’d a basic level of enhancement at $7.3 million. He said, however, $12.6 million is recommended for the property “to really take that next step forward.” The $5.3 million

requested from the city is the difference. The $12.6 million project would include new restrooms, a play area, new efficient lighting, redesigned mall entrances, landscaping and more. “It’s not just painting and fixing it up but really to be able to go out and to begin to turn this property in the direction we all want to go,” said Hammer. Edina City Council members said they wanted to look at options other than providing a straight subsidy. “We sit and wrestle with that same issue you wrestle with, which is a return on investment issue,” said Mayor Jim Hovland. “We’re really wrestling with this notion of helping you with that fresh coat of paint, that $5.3 million to do hallways, to do floors, to do new entrances, to do new bathrooms, is that the kind of investment or subsidy the city should be doing?” Hovland was in strong support of using public dollars to purchase land from Simon for a transit station and water treatment facility near the mall, both meeting public needs. Simon could then use the money from the land sale

for its renovations. Mall Manager Laurie Van Dalen said she has been working with Metro Transit, a service of the Metropolitan Council, to move the existing bus stop near the JCPenney entrance away from the building closer to York Avenue. She said 64 percent of crime at the mall is related to the bus stop. Hovland and city staff also recently met with Metro Transit about the potential of building a larger transit station near the corner of York Avenue and 66th Street to accommodate the 800 riders a day that come through Southdale, Hovland said. He said that idea was well received. The city also needs to build a water treatment facility to meet growing needs in the area. “We would also solve this slippery slope problem of providing direct subsidy to the mall if we had a public purpose out there for the water treatment facility and transit station,” Hovland said. Hammer said Simon has used that approach in other projects, including in SOUTHDALE: TO PAGE 25A

Edina Schools launches parent-driven blog The Mill tells stories of everyday life in Edina Public Schools BY KATIE MINTZ • SUN NEWSPAPERS There’s new venue for sharing stories in Edina. Edina Public Schools launched a community-sourced blog last month, as well as an official Facebook page. Doug Johnson, director of community relations and Community Education Services, said the district put a lot of thought into entering social media. “The challenge for us was making sure whatever we put in place we could maintain and we could have interest in,” said Johnson. “So many organizations do it to just do it. We want to do it well.” The unique blog,, is named after Edina’s historic mill. Cheryl Gunness, a parent and editor of the blog, said it’s a modern gathering place for the community, just as the mill at 50th Street and

Minnehaha Creek was long ago. “Our Mill harnesses not the mighty Minnehaha, but instead social media tools and a cataract of community energy to gather stories of Edina Public Schools. Small stories that otherwise go unnoticed. Stories that personalize the Edina Public Schools,” wrote Gunness in the opening post. Gunness, who has a Ph.D. in English, said The Mill is not intended to share snow closures or detailed budget numbers. Those news items are already publicized on the official district website, through school newsletters and the media. “Often institutions like school districts

or cities launch a social media plan but stick to the old model of trying to push information out to people,” said Gunness, who has children in grades 2 and 5 at Highlands Elementary School. She said The Mill, which is updated every Tuesday and Friday, has only personal stories written by parents about life in Edina schools. Gunness said she is also recruiting grandparents, school volunteers, students and others to write. She said she hopes the blog represents all parts of the Edina community. Recent posts on The Mill include an account of D-Day – the May 1 deadline for many college decisions – and the story of a

9-year-old who made a pact with a friend to solve their problems with “words and not their hands.” Gunness, an avid reader, said she finds those narratives some of the most powerful, memorable and inspiring writing. The blog will also feature photos and video. “Edina Public Schools is such a mighty, large, impressive school district we sometimes lose sight of the fact that the district is made up of millions of personal moments that can help us all relate,” she said. Not every story will sing the district’s praises. There will also be stories about THE MILL: TO NEXT PAGE

At the end of its second week, Friday, April 29, it was “way over 1,000 hits,” said Johnson. “I have people stop me and say ‘Hey, I read the blog.’” Johnson said the district is also hoping to have 1,000 fans of its new Facebook page by the end of the year. While several school groups like Edina Hornet Athletics and Edina High School Bands already have their own pages, this is the first districtwide profile.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Ban wood smoke To the editor: What happened to property rights? My husband and I live in Edina and enjoy our yard, deck and porch. We also enjoy having our windows open. Like everyone else, we pay property taxes for the ability to use and enjoy our property. But the past few years haven’t been so enjoyable because wood smoke from outdoor fireplaces and pits in our immediate neighborhood is polluting our air. The smell is nauseating, and it angers us to have to go inside and close up the house. We have recently learned how dangerous wood smoke is to breathe, alerting us that it is not just a nuisance, but also a very real health hazard. If people cannot smoke outside in Edina parks, why do we have to breathe secondhand smoke on our own property? Edina grants free permits to anyone for recreational fires giving them “the right” to have a fire. It seems like Edina is permitting pollution. Shouldn’t citizens also be able to get a “smoke free” permit for their property? We would like to see a ban on backyard wood fires so that Edina residents are not allowed to pollute for entertainment in this age of concern about pollution. Catherine Reeves Edina

Alternative school is good fit for daughter To the editor: I am writing to let the community know about an amazing but not wellknown resource for area students called Prairie Center Alternative School in Eden Prairie. Our daughter was struggling to keep up in a large local high school. The big, lecture-based format did not meet her learning style. She was always behind. When a family accident struck, the emotional toll of the accident and ever mounting workload proved daunting. In stepped Prairie Center Alternative. The small class sizes, and self-directed but structured classes have more than met our daughter’s needs. The atmosphere promotes higher-level thinking

EDINA without the distractions present in many larger classrooms. Real learning takes place every day sparking many new interests and avenues of inquiry. The instructors are bright, engaged and caring toward their students. The administrators are flexible and interested in each student’s success. During a recent visit, I was impressed to see all students either quietly studying or engaged in small group discussions. The first day there, our daughter took a series of tests to assess her learning style. Those have shaped her ongoing instruction. Fridays are used to perform community service or interact with outside speakers. She now gets up easily each day because she wants to go to school. Even though she is going to school at Prairie Center Alternative, her final transcript will be from her local high school. For students who have a hard time with one-size fits all, Prairie Center Alternative is a model that works. Kim Montgomery Edina

Kudos to Edina autism specialist To the editor: Julie Robinson, autism specialist at Valley View Middle School, is a true treasure and an incredible asset for the Edina schools. As a parent of a child with autism, I can tell you that our educational struggles as a family are often difficult, but Ms. Robinson has made an incredible difference both for my son and for me. She is to be commended for her superior knowledge regarding autism spectrum disorders and has been a stellar educator and advocate for my son. Autism is a vast and nebulous disability – and confusing for many people to understand. However, Ms. Robinson has helped my son’s special education team set clear educational goals and come to a better understanding of his disability. She has served as an educator for his teachers in the regular education classes he is able to attend, has advocated for all his necessary and crucial educational supports and worked more than diligently to create a successful learning environment where my son is able to make

progress. I am confident that my son’s progress this year is due to her efforts. Ms. Robinson is more than outstanding when it comes to her commitment to my son and to other students with autism. Ms. Robinson has made an incredible difference for us and we are so impressed with both her expertise as an educator of children with autism and with the caring she displays when working with his team and us a family. Thank you Ms. Robinson and Edina Schools! Kari Halker Robbinsdale

Gov’t not responsible for safety net To the editor: This is in regard to Dr. Lifson’s column last week (“Leaders need to step up...,” April 28): Dr. Lifson does not mention the most effective preventive for STIs: abstinence. It has been known to work 100 percent of the time. If our sex education programs simply provide a manual for having safe sex while tacitly approving sex out of wedlock, we truly have failed our youth. We have also failed our youth if we do not treat these young people as adults. Dr. Lifson’s column seems to focus on the midteens to mid-20s age group. Once this group has had the causes and results of STIs explained to them, let them make their own decisions. It can be very hip and cool to be naughty but as adults, they should understand that there are consequences to their actions and that society cannot and will not always be there to bail them out of trouble they got themselves into. The legislature has no obligation to provide a safety net for “on purpose” behavior whether it is smoking, excessive drinking, illegal drugs, or sex out of wedlock. All of these acts begin with a voluntary action on the part of these young people. To blame the legislature for not providing a safety net for the consequences of irresponsible behavior while tacitly tolerating or even approving the very acts that create these consequences is not an answer.

Local governments regain variance authority BY MARC INGBER • SUN NEWSPAPERS Cities and counties have been given the OK to grant variances like they did in the past. Gov. Mark Dayton signed a bill May 5 that allows local governments greater latitude to grant zoning variances. A decision the Minnesota Supreme Court handed down in July 2010 changed the landscape for variances. The court ruled that a “municipality does not have the authority to grant a variance unless the applicant can show that her property cannot be put to a reasonable use without the variance.” That differed greatly from a 1989 decision that stated a variance could be granted if property owners “would like to use the property in a ‘reasonable manner’ that is prohibited by the ordinance.” In effect, the 2010 decision made it next to impossible for cities to grant variances, except in rare circumstances. It was handed down in the case, Krummenacher v. City of

Weekly Super Savings!

Minnetonka. The bill Dayton signed May 5 is designed to clarify the law so that cities and counties can use the standards that had been in place for decades prior to last year’s decision. The new law states variances may be granted when applicants establish there are “practical difficulties” in complying with the official control and they intend to use the property in a “reasonable manner.” The variance law that went into effect last year affected more than $45 million in building projects, according to the 2011 Builders Association of the Twin Cities. “Any project requiring a variance was ground to a halt last summer, leaving property owners with no options to improve their property and builders and remodelers on the sidelines,” said Rich Riemersma, the organization’s president. “These projects can now move forward.” The bill went into effect immediately after Dayton signed it.

Man charged for firing gun near Southdale No injuries in Saturday, May 7, incident in center parking lot BY KATIE MINTZ • SUN NEWSPAPERS A 30-year-old Plymouth man faces a felony for firing a gun in the Southdale Center parking lot Saturday night, May 7. John Ryan Greichunos was charged Tuesday, May 10, in Hennepin County District Court with the reckless discharge of a firearm. He was released from jail on $20,000 bail. According to the criminal complaint, Edina Police Department officers were dispatched to the mall in Edina on report of a man with a gun. Officers located Greichunos speaking to a security employee in the parking lot. Witnesses said a man matching his description fired a gun into the air. When asked if he had a weapon, Greichunos said he had a gun down the front of his pants. He was handcuffed and officers recovered a loaded .45 caliber handgun. Officers also recovered one .45 caliber shell casing in the parking lot, according to the complaint.

Edina Education Fund

Edina volunteers recognized One of the city of Edina’s top awards for community service was recently presented to a philanthropist who worked to raise money last fall for a young African boy’s education. Mayor Jim Hovland presented Paul Mooty with the Mayor’s Individual Service Commendation at Edina’s Volunteer Recognition Reception Thursday, April 28, at Edinborough Park. The award is given annually to an individual for outstanding volunteer service. A past president of the Rotary Club of Edina, Mooty helped raise about $30,000 in October to pay for 6-year-old Moses Mwaura’s education in Nairobi, Kenya. Last spring, the Rotary Club of Edina brought Moses to Minnesota from Africa to have his crossed eyes surgically corrected and to repair his damaged teeth. Mooty is a current member of the Edina Community Foundation Board of Directors and past member of the Transportation Commission. He recently completed a one-year appointment as an executive in residence at the Center for Integrative Leadership at the University of Minnesota. There, he wrote a case study on the integrative leadership aspects of Rotary’s role in polio eradication, which was later used in a graduate class on leadership. Hovland presented five other prestigious awards at the Volunteer Recognition Reception. • Mayor’s Service Club Commendation: Edina Federated Women’s Club. The Edina Federated Women’s Club has made this a year of multiple special projects to be accomplished in place of its usual philanthropic fundraiser, Feds Fest. The club’s mission during 2010-2011 is to complete several service projects, especially in support of Cornerstone and VEAP – organizations that provide food, shelter and clothing for women and their children who are experiencing domestic violence. • Mayor’s Connecting With Kids Commendation: Edina Communications Explorers Post 3411. Chartered in the fall of 2010, the Communications Explorers Post is for young people ages 15 to 20 that are interested in pursuing a career in the communications field. Exploring programs are based on five areas of emphasis: career opportunities, life skills, citizenship, character education and leadership experience. Members are high school students from Edina, St. Louis Park, BenildeSt. Margaret’s and Totino-Grace. • Mayor’s Youth Commendation: Apeksha Goonewardena and J.D. Loyle. Apeksha is a junior at Blake School who has volunteered a significant amount of time in service at Fairview Southdale Hospital as a “Junior Volunteer.” In this

role she has been active in the STEP Force Program since the spring of 2009. At the hospital, STEP Force volunteers transport and discharge patients, many of who are anxious and nervous. In 2010, Apeksha gave over 254 hours of her time. J.D., an Edina High School sophomore, is a charter member of the Communications Explorers Post 3411. As a member of the post, J.D. has perfect attendance, not even missing the field trip to the Star Tribune Heritage Center scheduled over winter break. In addition to the regular activities of the post, J.D. has provided office assistance to the city’s Communications and Marketing Department, reviewed content on the city’s website, helped produce a broadcast of the Edina City Council and assisted with the taping of Edina’s monthly newscast “Agenda: Edina.” • Mayor’s Outstanding Senior Commendation: Shirley Johnson. Johnson has been an active volunteer at Fairview Southdale Hospital since 1969. Johnson volunteers weekly at the hospital’s information desk where she greets patients and visitors, answers the patient information phone line and directs people to their destinations. • Mayor’s Community Involvement Commendation: Police Officer Brian Hubbard. Hubbard, who joined the Edina Police Department in 2007, is well known in the community for coordinating the department’s Citizens’ Academy, an 11week program that gives participants an informative, interactive look behind the scenes of the department. Attendees make mock traffic stops, tour the Hennepin County jail, learn defensive tactics, follow the course of a criminal investigation and process a crime scene. Among other things, Hubbard organized the “Wills for Heroes” event at the police department. This provided officers and their spouses the chance to have their wills drafted for free through volunteer attorneys. Hubbard also helped structure and participated in the Edina Youth Distracted Driving Campaign. Many service organizations also recognized their own exemplary volunteers at the reception. Awards were presented to the following: Heather Randall King, Edina Art Center; Mike Sitek, Edina Chamber of Commerce; Claire Anderson, Will Kenney and J.D. Loyle, Edina Communications Explorers Post 3411; Mike Opitz, Edina Community Channel 16; Kevin Clay, Eric Burfeind, Mike Seaman and Bruce Coles, Energy & Environment Commission; Ginny Pearson, Edina Federated Women’s Club; AWARDS: TO PAGE 18A

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

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

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

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

Explore energy-efficient window coverings The ultimate goal of homeowners may be to install new energyefficient windows on their homes. However, the reality is that new windows can be a costly endeavor, one that's not necessarily for affordable for homeowners who continue to tighten their purse strings in a struggling economy. There are alternatives to installing new windows, including exploring options in energy-saving window coverings and draperies that can help prevent the exchange of air from inside and outside the home. Because they can be considerably less expensive than replacement windows, energy-saving window coverings are a viable option for those looking to eliminate drafts or preventing summer's heat from entering the home via windows that aren't up to snuff. There are several different styles from which to choose that make good alternatives for homeowners. Homeowners can convert traditional drapes into energy-saving options by making them fit more snugly. By securing the sides and the bottoms of the drapery to the walls with double-sided tape or Velcro, the curtains will contain the air that flows from the drafty window. Options also abound for homeowners who prefer blinds or drapes that are energy-efficient. Honeycomb blinds are the new alternative to mini blinds or verticals. They are made from accordion pleated fabric that forms a honeycomb pattern when the blinds are lowered. The double-layer blinds insulate the windows and can prevent heat

or cool air loss. Some accordion blinds are even rated for their efficiency. Black-out drapes can do more than darken a room for those who want to sleep longer in the morning. These drapes can keep hot sunlight out during the summer months, which can lead to a cooler home and less money spent on air conditioning. The same drapes can block drafts in cooler months because of the thickness of this type of curtain. Individuals who live in warm climates should select drapes and blinds that are light in color so they will reflect the sunlight and prevent rooms from overheating. Awnings or shrubbery placed by westand south-facing windows can help block even the harshest of the sun's rays. There are also energy-saving window films that can be applied to insulate windows and/or reflect sunlight. An added barrier between the glass of the window and the interior of the home may be all that's needed to make temperatures more comfortable. Until drafty windows can be replaced, homeowners can rely on energy-saving window coverings to help alleviate drafts or loss of cool air inside of the home. Different types of blinds and drapes can be used to provide insulation on drafty windows and prevent energy loss.

Consider concrete walls to replace wood Building the envelope of a house with concrete instead of wood is in high demand in the 21st century. Concrete is now a premium choice for delivering energy efficiency -- and as a replacement for wood framing, concrete walls reduce the need for trees and represent a big step in responsible building. Indeed, the latest technology in this field is able to deliver important energy savings -- as well as significant environmental and human health benefits. The award-winning wall system, by industry leader, Nudura, builds with pre-assembled forms, each one stacked, reinforced, and then filled with concrete. Once locked together (like Lego), the system creates a solid, monolithic concrete wall. Energy savings are recorded up to 70 percent. Drafts are eliminated. Wood-rot, mould, and the related toxicity are eliminated. The concrete building envelope is recorded to be up to three times more sound resistant, four times more fire resistant, and nine times stronger. More information on this building system is available online at

Concrete is an increasingly popular choice as a replacement for wood construction.

Van Valkenburg Park last month. Both dogs survived. “I want the community to know we are looking into it,” Long. “It’s just we’re fairly limited in what we can do.” Currently, residents who report coyote sightings are advised to contact a wildlife management company. Long said under both city policy and Minnesota Department of Natural Resources policy, the responsibility to eradicate wild animals falls to private property owners when the animals are exhibiting normal behavior. Long said the city is also actively spreading the word about the risk of coyotes through email and media alerts. Residents have been told to not leave small pets unsupervised outdoors. For Bob and Becky Bennett, simply knowing there are coyotes in Edina is not enough. Their dog Smokey was attacked in April after being let onto a fenced back patio for a split-second. They frequently see coyotes in their northwest Edina neighborhood, including one so brazen it lingered in their backyard on Easter

Sunday during a large family gathering. “This isn’t a response, this is a surrender,” Bob Bennett said, noting at the meeting he tried reading education materials “to the coyote from my deck but the coyote didn’t seem to respond very well.” In rural areas, he said the predatory animals are shot on sight, and asked the city to find a way to safely shoot coyotes. Long said options other than education, including poisoning, trapping or shooting coyotes, put city residents and their pets at greater risk of harm. “I adamantly discourage using police officers to shoot these animals. I think it’s a bad choice and very dangerous,” Long said. It is illegal for residents to set traps in the city or to discharge firearms in city limits without a permit. Since the first reported coyote sighting in the city about five years ago, Long estimates the population has grown to about a dozen. Many cities around the metro area are also experiencing an influx of coyotes as the animals continue to spread north in the United States. The neighboring cities of Minneapolis, Eden Prairie, Bloomington, Richfield, Hopkins, St. Louis Park and Brooklyn Park are also focusing their response on education, Long said.

“They have all taken the same approach, which is educating the public,” he said. “They do not take an active role in wildlife management in their cities.” Long said rather than refer residents to companies that specialize in wildlife management, Edina could hire its own private contractor to remove coyotes for residents, but that would set a precedent. He questioned the potential cost to the city and if there would be requests to remove other animals. Mayor Jim Hovland said he would follow Long’s recommendation for now, but believes there will need to be a more active response than education alone. He said he expects the problem to get worse as spring and summer progress. Residents who’ve already had pets attacked are frustrated. “When you’ve got a predator growing in numbers in your town you need to develop some kind of a strategy to deal with it,” Hovland said. To date there have been no reported coyote attacks on humans in the state, but Becky Bennett said she’s concerned about that after seeing how fearless the coyotes are in her neighborhood.

Southdale FROM PAGE 3A the state of Virginia, where tax increment financing uses are limited. But he said because there is debt on the property, its bank may want any money from property sales to go toward the mortgage. Simon took ownership of Southdale Center in 2007 after acquiring The Mills Corporation. “We have some research and work to do to be able to respond to you in a full and complete manner to your idea,” said Hammer.

Phipps said without investment from the city, the basic renovation – “a paint your house type of situation” – will result. “We don’t want to spend $7 million for people to say ‘Something is different. I don’t know what.’ We want to do a renovation where people walk in and say ‘Wow, this place has been transformed,’” he said. Council member Josh Sprague said he was not totally opposed to using public dollars on cosmetic upgrades. “I’m in the middle. I find that our interests are completely aligned,” said Sprague. “What’s good for Southdale is good for the district... I don’t think we

can miss this opportunity.” Sprague said the Minnesota Legislature affirmed economic development as a public purpose with a 2010 law that allows cities to spend tax increment financing on any type of construction as long as a building permit is pulled by July 1, 2011. Bills to extend the deadline are pending at the state Capitol. Council member Mary Brindle said she also wasn’t completely opposed to using public dollars in this way. Council members Ann Swenson and Joni Bennett, as well as Hovland, said

they wanted to see more clear public benefit for investing public dollars. “We are caught right where you are but just for different reasons,” Swenson said. Bennett said she couldn’t see a public purpose in the interior and exterior changes. “That’s why I’m really attracted to the concept that’s been floated and I hope it does get favorable consideration by your company,” Bennett said. Following the meeting, Hammer said Simon would look into the idea and try to respond quickly to the city.

Coyotes FROM PAGE 24A also urged the city to be more aggressive before disaster strikes. “If we haven’t had any in Minnesota, we’re very, very lucky because they’re happening in other states,” she said. Linda Sherman, another resident in northern Edina, said she just witnessed two coyotes corner her dog the day before the meeting. She said keeping dogs and children indoors couldn’t be

the only answer to the problem. Council member Josh Sprague said he’d like the city to set a threshold for coyote activity that would prompt further action to prevent harm when necessary. Long said he will continue to look at options. He said he encourages residents to report coyote sightings to the city so it can track the animals and direct education measures in impacted neighborhoods. Coyote sightings can be reported to Edina Animal Control at 952-826-0494. If an immediate response is required, call 911.

At 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, and woodwork. 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.

Present this coupon after estimate

Ed Crandall and Dennis Imbody 612-607-0057

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 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.

Edina pastor recieves human rights award Good Samaritan United Methodist Church Senior Pastor Dan Johnson received Edina’s Tom Oye Human Rights Award at the city’s Volunteer Recognition Reception Thursday, April 28, at Edinborough Park. Each year, the Edina Human Rights & Relations Commission presents the award to a person who fosters respect and dignity for others, models courage and compassion in the advancement of human rights, and demonstrates leadership by example for improving and advancing human rights. Good Samaritan United Methodist Church has been a reconciling church that openly welcomes and affirms gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people since 1995. According to his nominators, Johnson, senior pastor for the past 12 years, has challenged his suburban congregation to “step outside their comfort zone and embrace the Gospel’s call to show compassion and do justice for all people, regardless of differences. On a host of issues from poverty and homelessness to discrimination and equality, his message has been that all people are chil-

dren of God entitled to the same respect and dignity.” Johnson advises churches grappling with the issues of becoming reconciling congregations. He has lent his name to Outfront Minnesota, a group working for marriage equity rights and has designated a Reconciling Sunday in his local church. He has been a spokesman for resolutions aimed at eliminating discriminatory language in the United Methodist Book of Discipline. Johnson will continue to champion human rights in his new cabinet position as director of congregational development in the Minnesota Annual Conference of United Methodist Churches. Johnson is the 10th recipient of the Tom Oye Human Rights Award, which is named for the late founder of the Human Rights and Relations Commission, which began in 1970. Oye was a Nisei soldier in World War II, a second-generation Japanese American who served in the 100th Infantry Battalion of the 442nd Regimental Combat Team, one of the most decorated units in U.S. military history.

Homes Within Reach Executive Director Janet Lindbo said the program, also known as the West Hennepin Affordable Housing Land Trust, has qualified buyers purchase the house structure, and lease the land underneath it for a nominal fee. By removing the cost of land from the equation, mortgage payments, property taxes and closing costs are significantly reduced, making homeownership possible for working households, she said. The Minnetonka-based organization began in 2001 when community leaders in that city saw a need for permanent affordable homeownership for teachers, retail and customer service workers, food custodians, municipal employees and other laborers. “We want to meet the needs of those

essential workers in our communities,” which have since grown to also include Brooklyn Park, Deephaven, Edina, Eden Prairie, Golden Valley, Maple Grove, New Hope, Richfield, St. Louis Park and Wayzata, said Lindbo. With a decade of service behind it, Board President Robert Hamilton said Homes Within Reach has a solid foundation to continue growing. The first-ever fundraiser and benefit for the nonprofit is Monday evening, May 23, at Centennial Lakes Park in Edina. “We really think the mission is great for our communities,” said Hamilton, an Edina resident and co-chair of the event. Homes Within Reach purchases typically foreclosed and abandoned properties with funding from local, state and federal programs, and private donors. The properties are then refurbished to safety, health and efficiency guidelines before they are sold to the new owners. Fixes can include new electrical wiring, windows, roofs and appliances. Owner Christine Johnson, who’s been in her St. Louis Park house for a year and a half, said she was blown away by its condition. “Everything was new in my home except for the washer and dryer,” she said, taking away the risk for immediate costly repairs that could break the bank. “They make sure that you will be able to succeed in home ownership.” Johnson, who works as certified peer

counselor for Ramsey County Adult Mental Health, is a foster parent and single mom to an adopted 4-year-old boy. She said she had never entertained the possibility of owning a home until she saw a Homes Within Reach flier in a coffee shop. To qualify, buyers must earn less than 80 percent of the area median income. Most clients make closer to 58 percent, said Lindbo. The average household income is $40,868. Buyers must be able to get a mortgage. The average monthly mortgage payment is $907, often equal to or less than the cost many were paying to rent. Lindbo said while home prices have dropped in some areas over the past few years, the cost of the land has not decreased in the suburbs. Homes Within Reach has found available properties need more work, offsetting savings. Additionally, more people are looking for affordable options as wages and hours have been reduced. At the same time, nonprofits are facing funding challenges with public and private sector cuts. For example, Community Development Block Grant dollars were reduced 16 percent in the 2011 federal budget, Lindbo said. Homes Within Reach receives money from that source from three of the communities it serves, including $82,000 allocated by the city of Edina in 2010.

Homes Within Reach benefit Homes Within Reach is having its first fundraiser 5-8:30 p.m. Monday, May 23, in the Hughes Pavillion at Centennial Lakes Park, 7499 France Ave. S., in Edina. The event is open to the public. A $10 donation is suggested at the door. The family-friendly, casual evening will feature presentations by Homes With Reach Board members and a chance to meet homeowners and mayors from the 11 communities served. There will be food catered by Prima, Byerly’s and Lund’s, and croquet playing in the park, as well as a silent auction with more than 50 items. They include everything from a $1,000 R.F. Moeller Jeweler gift certificate and $1,300 Cooks of Crocus Hill gift certificate for private cooking class and party, to Twins baseball tickets, a private movie showing at Edina Theatre, weekend getaway at Westin Edina Galleria, grill from Warner’s Stellian, and more. An iPad courtesy of Best Buy will also be given away as a door prize. Attendees can also participate in the “Wine Frenzy” by purchasing a wine cork for $25. Each cork matches up with one of 300 bottles ranging in value from $12 to $300. Info:

Edina Sun-Current – Thursday, May 12, 2011–

Homes FROM PAGE 28A Lindbo said currently Homes Within Reach is able to add 10-15 homes a year to its roster and at any given time is working with up to 30 applicants in different stages of the process. Board member Patti Marrinan of Edina said her favorite part is seeing the smiles on new homeowners’ faces after closing. For Marrinan, co-chair of the upcoming benefit, housing has long been a passion. She remembers her father, a real estate agent, working hard to get one young couple into their first home. Her mother’s plan to finally paint their own house was dashed because it turned out he didn’t take any commission.

“My father had this passion that all people should have a home and I’ll never forget that,” she said. Minnetonka resident Rebecca Edmondson is also on board, a third of which is comprised by clients like herself and Johnson. Edmondson said she wants to give back to others what she’s received since purchasing her home a year and a half ago through Homes Within Reach. Unlike most clients, Edmondson was not a first-time buyer. She sold her first home 15 years ago to move to Mexico, where she worked as an academic advisor for a private international Catholic school system, eventually becoming a vice principal. She was later transferred to Chicago. After going through a divorce, she came home to Minnesota, however, her teaching license didn’t transfer. She

heard about Homes Within Reach while working part-time at an after-school program She said having a permanent home near family was important for her and son Lalo, 12, after moving so many times in recent years. “Our house is in a very nice neighborhood,” said Edmondson, who is nearing completion of a master’s degree in curriculum development. “There are a lot of kids my son’s age here. His new best friend lives next door. He can walk to his school bus and feel safe.” Once owners purchase their home, they can stay there even if their income increases beyond 80 percent of the area median. If they decide to sell their home during the course of their 99-year land lease, it must be sold to a qualifying buyer. Often, owners will work with

Homes Within Reach to complete the transaction. Hamilton said each investment over time has the potential to serve a large number of people. “The average person stays in one of our homes for about nine years,” said Hamilton. “Because we can put this land in our trust for a century, our 90 homes will serve 900 families.” Lindbo said the communities where the homes are located also benefit from the new dedicated homeowners and community members. The Trailers said they enjoy owning a home and doing all of the work that comes with it. They are already planning some upgrades in their kitchen. “We have all these dreams for the house,” said Angie. “It as completely move-in ready and now we can totally dream whatever we want to.”

MARK YOUR CALENDAR The Lake Conference boys and girls track meets will begin at 3:30 p.m. Tuesday, May 17, at Hopkins High Stadium.

BY JOHN SHERMAN • SUN NEWSPAPERS Devin Crawford-Tufts, Edina High’s senior boys track sprinter, was in midseason form during the Edina Invitational May 6 at Kuhlman Field. He set a meet record of 10.94 seconds in the 100-meter dash. In the 200, he ran his fastest time of the season (21.72) for another first place. “Devin is improving,” said Edina head coach Dave Boone. “He is running faster than he did at this time last spring. Now, we’re going to transition into the speed phase of his training.” Crawford-Tufts led the Hornets to third place in the Edina Invitational. Stillwater won it with 193 points. The next three places went to Lake Conference teams – Eden Prairie with 156, Edina with 112 and Hopkins with 96. Rounding out the field were Jefferson

(56), Kennedy (44), Minneapolis Washburn (38) and Cooper (35). The other first place for Edina was Aldis Inde’s victory in the 1,600. He finished in 4 minutes, 22.69 seconds. “Aldis defeated three Stillwater runners who all went under 4:30,” said Boone. “He has been training really well.” Aside from the first places, Edina had some other significant highlights. Hornet senior Kyle Wagener finished second in the 3,200 with his fastest time of the season (9:47.71). Joey O’Connell, another Hornet senior, took third place in the 3,200. Junior David Fogg gave Edina a fifth place in the 800 in 2:00.34. Junior Sam Leese finished fifth in the 1,600 in 4:29.71. Junior Keagan Potts was one of Edina’s top performers in the field events as he took fourth place in the pole vault.

Inde, a senior on the Edina High boys track team, won the 1,600meter run at the Edina Invitational May 6. His time was 4 minutes, 22.69 seconds.

Drew Kremer Kremer has been swinging a hot bat for coach Mike Olson’s Edina High baseball team. Through last week, Kremer led the Hornets with a .474 batting average.

Lucas McCormick The Breck School golfer shot 40 for nine holes in leading his team to a 165-188 victory over Concordia Academy in a nine-hole match May 2 at Goodrich Golf Club.

Dylan Rusk The Edina High golfer was his team’s top finisher in the Nelson Invitational last week. He shot a 74 on a par-72 course as Edina tied for fifth place in the team standings.

Hornet boys tennis team looks for right combination


Hornet boys golf team tops Holy Angels Goerne scores a 48 in 11-hole dual meet

Edina stands 6-6 through 12 matches


BY JOHN SHERMAN • SUN NEWSPAPERS This has been a year of adjustment for the Edina High boys tennis team. Coach Gary Aasen usually has his team in contention for the state Class AA title, and that may be the case again this year, but so far it has been a slow process. The Hornets are 6-6 in their first 12 matches and are 0-2 in the Lake Conference with losses to Eden Prairie (5-2) and Minnetonka (4-3). In non-conference matches, the Hornets have several notable victories, including a 4-3 win over Apple Valley and a 5-2 win over Rochester Century. They lost 5-2 against Rochester Mayo and fell to a tough Mounds View squad, 6-1. “We’re getting there,” Aasen said earlier this week. “I don’t know how we could have a tougher schedule … so far, we have played a lot of close matches. “I knew it would take time this year because we don’t have anyone with state tournament experience. In fact, we don’t even have anyone who has played in the section finals.” Sophomore Spencer Olson has taken the lead as the No. 1 singles player in Edina’s lineup while Tyler Kuck, Max Wolf and Kavir Kumar are also seeing singles action. Co-captain Chris Basting leads the doubles. “We’re pretty sure that we have four or five guys who will play most of our singles,” said Aasen. “It is still going to take some time to set the doubles.” The Hornets will have a chance to evaluate their doubles combinations when they play Hopkins in a Lake Conference match at 4 p.m. Thursday, May 12, at Edina Community Center. Hopkins, coached by Kenny Novak Jr., stands 3-0 in Lake competition and is 6-0 overall. “We have been winning the close ones so far,” Novak said after his team knocked off No. 1-ranked Wayzata 4-3 in a Lake match. The Royals have a strong 1-2 punch in singles with senior Ryan Erickson at No. 1 and senior Michael Fields at No. 2.

Hopfner specializes in cold-weather wins BY JOHN SHERMAN • SUN NEWSPAPERS Luckily for the Edina High baseball team, sophomore left-hander Matt Hopfner doesn’t mind pitching in cold weather. “We call him Forty-Degree Hopfner,” said Edina head coach Mike Olson. “In his first four starts this spring, the temperature was above 40 only once, and I think it was 49 that day.” The bottom line is that Hopfner has pitched well in every start and emerged as Edina’s ace. His 2-2 record includes close losses to Eden Prairie (2-0) and Lakeville South (2-1). He was the winning pitcher as Edina beat Shakopee by the 10-run rule and added a 6-5 win over Hopkins last week. Hopfner had to gut out the win at

Hopkins. He battled through some serious trouble in the middle innings, but had enough left to go the distance. At the plate, he helped his cause with a two-run double. Junior Nick Omodt added two hits and sophomore Mark Handberg had a key RBI single. “My curveball set the tone early in the game,” Hopfner said. “It took a while for my fastball to warm up. And as I got warmer, I got faster.” “We can always count on Matt to go deep into the game,” said Olson. “He has been throwing unbelievably well. Matt changes speeds and keeps them off-balance.” The win over Hopkins boosted Edina’s record to 4-6 overall, and the Hornets beat Wayzata 11-1 in their next game to go 5-6.

Kevin Goerne’s 48 led the way as the Edina High boys golf team topped Holy Angels 197-216 in a recent 11-hole match at Minneapolis Golf Club. The Hornets have been on a hot streak lately, and coach Phil Finanger thinks he knows why. “We have been getting some better weather,” he said. “And the guys are beginning to stretch out.” Edina tied for fifth place in the Nelson Invitational last week. Wayzata was the champion with a 304 total while the Hornets posted 313. “I feel good about the way we played,” said Finanger. “It was a par-72 and Dylan Rusk was our leader with a 74. Alex Wojack had a 77. Our other two counters were Goerne with an 80 and Nick Johnson with an 82. “The weather we had for the Nelson Invitational was the nicest we have had all season. It was fun to play on a day like this.” The Hornets met Wayzata at Wayzata Country Club last week and lost 302-308. “It wasn’t the best day to play,” said Finanger. “But we had some good scores there.” Goerne led Edina with a 74 and Rusk was right behind with a 75. With warmer weather, Finanger is hopeful the Hornets’ scores will drop even lower. The highlight of the season thus far was Edina’s victory at The Pines Invitational in Nisswa two weeks ago. The weather was so bad that day that the tournament, which normally consists of 18 holes, was shortened to nine. Edina has enough good golfers to be a contender in Lake Conference and Class 3A, Section 6 tournament competition, Finanger said. However, Wayzata and Eden Prairie are currently ahead of Edina in the Lake Conference standings. Wayzata won the state championship last spring and has one of the top golfers in the metro area, senior Tyler Lowenstein.

Everything the Edina High girls lacrosse team shot May 3 found its way into Wayzata’s net as the Hornets won 20-7. Paige Jones sparked the Hornets’ attack with six goals and three assists while Madeline Rodriguez scored five goals and had two assists. Maggie Dobesh scored four goals for Edina and Carla Hirsch came through with three goals and an assist. Maddy Gamble and Theresa Rodriguez also had goals. The Edina girls rolled to a 22-6 victory over Hopkins in a Lake Conference match May 5. Paige Jones was Edina’s most active attacker with five goals and three assists while her sister Brooke earned the win in goal with six saves. Dobesh had three goals and an assist. Carla Hirsch also scored three times. Alexandra Lindholm and Emily Rose each had two goals.

Brianna Bellows, Reid Hischey, Sheila Hirsch, Sarah Reinke, Madeline Rodriguez, Theresa Rodriguez and Hailey Ware scored once each for Edina.

Boys lacrosse Edina High’s boys lacrosse team has been hot lately with four wins in a row. After starting the season 0-5, the Hornets have climbed to 4-5. In its 12-8 victory over Wayzata May 3, Edina relied on tough defense and opportunistic offense. Derek Todd was Edina’s offensive leader, scoring four goals and scooping up three ground balls. Willy Duggan and Danny Burke each had two goals and an assist for the Hornets. Geoff Anderson, Brian Baker, Carl Norberg and Danny Regan also scored. The Hornets added a 12-7 win over Hopkins May 5. Geoff Anderson had a big night for Edina, scoring five goals, while Burke added three and Todd scored two. Hornets goalie Mike Sullivan made 11 saves.




The boys played extrememly well on a very cold, rainy, and windy April 16-17 weekend. No goals were allowed in a shutout weekend!

Hornet girls finish third in invite Katybeth Biewen wins long jump gold medal BY JOHN SHERMAN • SUN NEWSPAPERS Edina High’s girls track and field team competed against their Lake Conference rivals, Hopkins and Eden Prairie, in the Edina Invitational May 6 at Kuhlman Field. Hopkins, the defending state Class AA champion, took the title with 167 points. Eden Prairie was second at 154.3 and Edina was third with 114.8 points in the eight-school meet. The Hornets won two gold medals in field events. Junior Katybeth Biewen placed first in the long jump with a distance of 16 feet, 9 1/4 inches. Another Hornet junior, Julia Good, won the gold medal in the high jump with a leap of 5 feet. Good and Danielle Schultz of Eden Prairie both cleared the bar at 5 feet, and then Good was declared the winner because she had fewer misses. Junior Emily Guimont cleared 9 feet to place third in the pole vault. She also

earned a third place in the triple jump with a distance of 32-11. Sophomore Kelly Fogelson placed fifth in the discus, throwing a state honor roll distance of 111-2. Running events were also productive for the Hornets. Ninth-grader Siena Patty finished third in the 200-meter dash and fourth in the 100. “We are very excited about Siena,” said Edina head coach Cole Nelson. “She is already faster than any freshman girl Edina has ever had.” Sophomore Molly Kuhs and senior Kiltie Finsand placed third and fourth in the 1,600. “Both girls had personal records,” Nelson said. “And Piper Bain ran well in the 3,200 to finish third.” The Hornets’ best effort in hurdles was Ellyn Rozman’s sixth place in the 300. Her teammate, K.J. Fogelson, finished seventh. Edina picked up a second place in the 4x200 relay with Emma Egan-Lawless, Patty, Good and Carina Joyce. The Hornets took second in the 4x800 relay with Finsand, Bain, Michaela Connors and Renee Johnson.
