Making Richfield bloom

BY BILLIE JO RASSAT • SUN NEWSPAPERS Bonnie Gruberman’s gardens and landscaping won her the recognition of being one of three of the best overall gardens in Richfield.

Hard work, determination and love of self, family, community and country are just of the few qualities that make any United States service member successful. The city of Richfield began the process to become a Yellow Ribbon City and because of their hard work, determination and love of self, family, community and country they will be recognized for their efforts to provide military base-like care in the community.

On Corrections: A few thoughts on correcting errors Depending on where you are reading this, you may have seen a small box on the lower right-hand corner of this page in the last few weeks. You might not have noticed it, but I can assure you it was there, emblazoned with black letters spelling an ominous word to many journalists: "Correction." Brrreeeggh. I just got the shivers. Nah, I'm kidding. We work in an industry that is ideally aimed at facts. And we like to get them right. No matter what. There is a school of thought in the media community that

DANIEL CALLAHAN Richfield Sun-Current Managing Editor

says you shouldn't publish corrections unless absolutely necessary to avoid hurting the publication’s credibility. The idea is that by pointing out the mistakes, readers will see how often you're getting things wrong and stop reading your paper. So why do we publish corrections? Why do we go out of

our way to point out our inaccuracies? Because we don’t believe printing corrections diminishes our credibility, but rather enhances it. I am well aware that media hasn't been seen in the best light in the last few decades. There still is that nasty persisting stereotype of the unethical reporter. In some newsrooms, the theme is "get the paper out," not necessarily "get the paper out right." Here at the Sun-Current, we aim higher. Let me be clear, we endeavor to get the facts right the first time. Frankly, I’m rather proud of the staff here; we don't often

get things wrong. But when we do err, it's simply irresponsible for us not to issue a correction. After all, the goal for any newspaper is to provide you, the reader, with factual information. When that information is wrong — something as small as an improperly labeled photo caption or as major as a misspelling of a name — it is our duty to provide you with the correct information as quickly as possible. We want to earn and maintain your trust. By pointing out where we've had issues, we hope you'll see we value precision above all else.

and 5K a success! Close to 1,500 runners registered to run through Richfield’s many beautiful green spaces and residential neighborhoods. A huge thanks goes out to the runners, race sponsors, city staff, teachers, students, spectators, volunteers, race committee members, and neighbors that helped make this event possible. The event raises money for the partnership between the Richfield Public Schools and Wood Lake Nature Center to provide thousands of students with environmental education programs throughout the school year. The program, entering its 36th year, has a lasting effect on students and the natural environment. The event has continued to serve as a model for a “green” or sustainable event. We set goals to reduce the environmental impact of the event itself by lessening the waste stream. Almost all race materials were recyclable, compostable, and reusable. Sustainable efforts included race medal and bib recycling,

medals made from recycled green glass, and free bus and light-rail transportation through Metro Transit. Thanks again to everybody who is a part of this event. If you would like to get involved in the 2012 Urban Wildland Half Marathon and 5K, please contact Amy Markle at 612-861-9369. Amy Markle

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Principal’s experience? To the editor: We are writing this letter in response to the article in the Sun Current, Richfield edition, dated July 25, regarding Richfield’s new high school principal. It seems to us that this young man is short on the experience that is critical to the position of an administrator of a moderately large metropolitan high school. Richfield has a population of about 40,000 with a good school system that serves the community well. We were appalled at the background of this newly designated young man. What are the experience levels of high school principals of the surrounding communities? What will his salary be and what is the term of his contract? How many teachers are there in the Richfield High School? Define the selection process: Who were the other candidates, and what were the reasons for the selection of this person?

Who made the final decision and job offer? We believe that the school system provides a solid foundation for any community, and it is always a major reason why families choose or don’t choose to live in a community. Without strong, experienced leadership, a school cannot be successful. Aristotle wrote that the type of intelligence most needed is prudence, which in turn requires experience. Mr. Fuchs has little of that. We would like you to answer these questions and those of other readers in the Sun Newspaper, since this is a critical decision for our community.

TIF FROM PAGE 1 As a TIF district, the city council gave the Richfield Housing and Redevelopment Authority the power to take any new tax increment and designate the use of it to preserve and enhance the tax base, to redevelop this substandard area and to provide employment in the city of Richfield. Tax increment financing uses the difference, or increment, between the baseline tax value of the property and the future tax value that increases as redevelopment happens. Developed by HRA with Cornerstone’s proposed plan in mind, the Lyndale Gardens TIF District consists of four parcels of land for a multiphase redevelopment. Including the ability for redevelopment on the site, the other criteria that

The Cornerstone Group has entered into a purchase agreement for the former Lyndale Garden Center site, and is requesting financial assistance in the form of TIF to facilitate the construction of a mixed-use commercial/retail, multi-family rental housing and public/community space. Although The Cornerstone Group is pursuing the redevelopment of this area, the HRA would be allowed to seek other proposed projects, should Cornerstone be unable to follow through with their phases. The next steps will be the negotiations between the HRA and Cornerstone to begin making the fine print.

To the editor: What is it that Councilmember Fred Wroge doesn't understand about democracy? He is whining that the Council “backed down” on the new trash ordinance. As an elected representative of the people, Mr. Wroge should have been grateful to receive emails, personal testimonials at the meeting and Facebook comments from Richfield citizens. He was elected to represent all his constituents, not to project an us, city council vs. them, community members, attitude. Take a deep breath, Mr. Wroge. For all those who cared enough about Richfield to express their opinion, you may now say thank you! Marilyn Nienkerk Richfield

Right Way Painting Solutions After one of the most brutal winters we have encountered in the past 30 years, we have all found things that need repair or replacement on our homes. Many of us have needed to put off work being done to our homes do to economic hard times. Many of us also put off projects to save money in case things got worse. Our home values have gone down which makes it hard to even think about selling our homes. The reality is that we have to keep our property in good shape to maintain our values. Painting the exterior of our homes is by far the best value to preserving our wood surfaces and windows. We can also dramatically change the appearance of the inside of our homes by updating colors. Painting woodwork is a very affordable option compared to replacing old trim around our homes. In many older homes our windows are still good, but the old stain and varnish are not holding up any more. You can save thousands of dollars by painting these windows verses replacing windows. Updating your

basement family room can also be as easy as painting the paneling. I’m Paul Moore from Rightway Painting Solutions. I’ve been in the painting business for over 20 years. Being a former Shop Teacher, I have a good background in finishing and wood replacement. We do both residential and commercial painting. We do work for several Town Home Associations, Nursing Homes and Residential Properties. We give our customers great value by being able to not just paint. We replace or repair wood, repair and reglaze older windows and reside areas that need replacement. We also repair decks and re stain decks. On the inside we repair walls, remove wallpaper, enamel wood work and paint paneling. We offer a 2 year labor warrantee on our labor, provide references and we would be happy to give you a free estimate. For all of your painting needs give us a call at 612-8392239.

ences. The test assesses four strands in grades 5 and grade 8, such as History and Nature of Science, Physical Science, Earth and Space Science and Life Science. High school assesses for History and Nature of Science and Life Science. Richfield Public Schools hopes to continue to fund its comprehensive professional development program through grants. Staff development partners and curriculum writing partners include Wood Lake Nature Center, Science Museum of Minnesota, University of Minnesota, Saint Catherine University and The Works. “Our teachers will continue to develop units of study, which integrate the sciences, mathematics, engineering and technology with other critical content and embed instructional strategies that excite and engage students,” Trewick said. Students in some courses will have new texts with electronic components at Richfield Middle and High Schools this fall. “We are proud of our students and staff. Richfield is a district second to none. Our scores must and will continue to improve,” Supt. Robert Slotterback said.

Yellow Ribbon FROM PAGE 1 On Tuesday, Aug. 23, at a proclamation event held at the Inver Hills Community College Auditorium, 2500 80th St. E., Inver Grove Heights, where Gov. Mark Dayton and Minnesota’s Adjutant General of the National Guard, Maj. Gen. Rick Nash, will honor the city of Richfield for becoming a Beyond the Yellow Ribbon community. The Beyond the Yellow Ribbon program was designed to connect service members and their families with community support, training, services and resources. After many meetings the steering committee, led by Richfield City Councilmember Tom Fitzhenry, along with leaders from city groups, community clubs, religious organizations, public and private schools, submitted a

Beyond the Yellow Ribbon Action Plan for state level approval, according to Staff Sgt. Aaron Hoska, and was approved. “Richfield has been doing so much for veterans already, I didn’t have to do much more than put the pieces together,” Fitzhenry said. The mission statement of the plan is to ensure the community supports military families. To do this the Richfield Citizen’s Committee will act as liaison between community and the military. The plan is divided into key areas and within those areas specific actions and minimal requirements are designated to be followed through by the supporting party to ensure the goals of Yellow Ribbon support. The plan also states who is responsible for making sure the requirements are being met. The key areas focus on the basic needs each military family has when coming home from deployment of

financial planning, accessible health care, community awareness, quality employment, family support and education. The specific key areas complied by the Richfield steering committee within the action plan includes City Leadership, Richfield Yellow Ribbon Citizen’s Committee, Public Safety and Judicial, Faith Based, Veteran Organizations and Civic Organizations, Businesses or Employers, Social Services and Medical Providers, and Education and Youth. Some of the detailed action items under the key areas include activating volunteers to support community-wide welcome home events for groups and individuals and for the Richfield Public Safety and Fire Departments to actively seek out children of military families for the Richfield Safety Camp or teens of military families to join the Richfield Police Explorers.

Other action items include religious organizations to offer marriage resources, retreats and counseling for deploying/reintegrating couples including courses in “Making a Marriage Deployment Ready” and “Loving a Service Member’ and local Richfield businesses to create a network of volunteers and support resources to provide financial literacy education, create a mentor program for services such as financial, tax and general fiscal planning information and assistance and to assist with resume and employment applications to service members and military families. “We have a lot of military personnel in our community. We want to make them welcomed and have support for them in our community,” Fitzhenry said. For more information about Richfield Beyond the Yellow Ribbon, visit

Note: While the amount of tax increment received and expended in a TIF district may not be equal in a given year, they become equal over the life of a project. Tax increment expenditures are made on an as-needed basis, given the fact that some projects have higher up front development cost than others. No tax increment project in Richfield has ever been allowed to expend more in tax increment financing than it ultimately receives as tax increment.

FROM PAGE 1 Led by Richfield Gifted and Talented teacher Sheila Johnston, the crew of the S.S. Yum Yum placed first in the Lieutenant’s Race, the under12 division. “Our goal was just to float,” Johnston said, “It was great that we exceeded our expectations and won.” Beginning as part of a fourth- and fifth-grade science and engineering unit, the students used the principles of problem solving, exploration, design, creation, testing and improvement to make prototypes out of the lunchroom, single-serving size milk cartons. “When we tested our prototypes, we had four criteria to test: buoyancy, stability, speed and maneuverability. The kids rated each criterion on a scale of 1-4,” Johnston said. After testing the designs in a wading pool during class, the winning design was the V-hull design. “We fine-tuned this design for our full scale boat,” Johnston continued. The next challenge included incorporating lessons of math to determine the how large they should build the boat and how many milk cartons would be needed to keep the boat afloat. “Each milk carton holds

The kids figured they weighed an average of 90 pounds, and we estimated that the plywood base weighed 60 pounds,” Johnston said. With six kids paddling, “They did the math and figured that we would need 150 milk cartons to float our boat,” she continues. The design of the boat included a covered bottom with 198 milk cartons. The cartons were taped together in lengths of five and 10 and all taped together and glued to the bottom of the boat, with the rest of the cartons used on the sides according to Johnston. They worried they were not going to have enough

milk cartons, but the Cheesecake Factory came to the rescue and donated all they could of half-gallon cream cartons. This is why the kids gave the boat the sweet name of S.S. Yum Yum, said Johnston. The kids on the racing team were Tatanka Lyons, Eleanor Carr, Nicole Mattson, Didi Orakwue, and Owen Lyngaas. The master builders – the students who put in many extra hours of hard work, said Johnston – were Hope Coleman and Dorcas Dowu. “The kids gained real-life experience using engineering and design. One of my students said it was her best day ever,” Johnston said.

Jungers hopes USA Cup success rubs off on Spartan soccer squad Richfield senior captain looks forward to 2011 high school season BY GREG KLEVEN • SUN NEWSPAPERS Mike Jungers enjoyed the taste of success during the summer soccer season and hopes to savor more victories this fall as tri-captain of the Richfield High School squad. Jungers, a defender, played a key role on the Westside United team that won the Under-18-19 Silver Flight at the USA Cup July 19-23 at the National Sports Center in Blaine. His Westside United team, based in southwest Minneapolis, defeated North Star Juventas of Canada 4-0 in the title game. Westside edged Rio Select of Brazil 1-0 in the semifinals of the largest youth soccer tournament in the Western Hemisphere. Westside was 5-1 in the tourney. Jungers’ Richfield teammate Nate Luttenegger, a midfielder, was also a member of the Westside United team. “Playing in and winning the USA Cup was an unbelievable experience,” said the 6-foot, 170-pound Jungers. “Our Westside United players wanted to go out with a bang at the USA Cup and we did just that. “We had players that communicated well with each other on the field and passed the ball well.” Jungers rarely left the field in the USA Cup. He picked up his affinity for the defender spot from his brothers. “My older brothers Paul and Greg both played defense at Richfield High,” said Jungers. “It seemed only natural that I would play that same position.” Paul Jungers graduated in 2003 and served as Richfield’s soccer captain. Greg Jungers led the Spartans to a Classic Suburban Conference title during his senior season in 2006. He was also a Richfield captain. Mike Jungers will follow in his broth-

He will share the 2011 Spartan captaincy with Jordan Zoellmer (defender) and Alex Viera (forward). Jungers would like his summer success to rub off on the Spartans this fall. This will be his third season on the varsity. “We struggled last season, but our younger players gained experience and should be better this fall,” said Jungers. “Last season was also frustrating for me

personally because I missed half of the season with a broken toe. “I’m really looking forward to my senior season and want to go out with the same type of bang that our Westside United team did in the USA Cup.” Richfield High’s boys soccer tryout sessions began Aug. 15 as the Spartans prepare for their opener against host Minneapolis Washburn at 5 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 25.

BL athletes are right on target in national meet Sprynczynatyk breaks archery record, Swanson smashes discus mark BY GREG KLEVEN • SUN NEWSPAPERS Two Bloomington boys were record setters in the National Junior Disability Championships July 16-23 in Saginaw, Mich. Tyler Sprynczynatyk, 12, and Shane Swanson, 10, broke national records in archery and track during national competition for 200 physically or visually impaired athletes between the ages of 7 and 21. The Bloomington athletes were part of the seven-member Minnesota Blizzard team at the nationals. Competition was held in archery, track and field, table tennis and swimming. Sprynczynatyk took first place and set a national record by shooting 692 out of 720 possible points in archery at 20 and 15 meters. Swanson finished second in archery at the same distances. In 2009, Sprynczynatyk had a score of 699 at 15 and 10 meters. That was the highest score at any distance in the 27-year history of the National Junior Disability Championships. Swanson broke the national record in track with a first-place discus throw. He also placed first in the shot put. Competing in his wheelchair, Swanson took second in the 60-meter dash and fourth in the 100 and 200 dashes. Both Sprynczynatyk and Swanson were born with spina bifida and met while participating in programs and camps at Courage Center in Golden Valley. “It has been inspiring to watch what

Shane is the son of Wendy

and Mark Swanson. Tyler specializes in archery and tennis. Shane concentrates on archery and track. “Tyler practices at the archery range off France Avenue in Bloomington,” said Christy Sprynczynatyk. “He came through with a ‘Robin Hood’ shot recently. “He shot an arrow into the bull’s eye of

the target. Then he shot another arrow right into the first arrow for his Robin Hood honor.

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

tion affects low thyroid. This research also showed that low thyroid persons have a observable posture and testable muscle weakness. There are six patterns of thyroid dysfunction and only one of them responds well to thyroid medication. That is why so many have been disappointed in their results. During the seminar Dr. Gilman will reveal the number one cause of low thyroid in the United States, why many women taking replacement hormones won’t get better, six patterns to thyroid problems, and why doctor’s don’t run complete thyroid tests. He will also discuss the one food that is often involved in low thyroid and how to test for it. In addition to exposing these truths about thyroid treatment, Dr. Gilman will also discuss natural solutions to help thyroid problems. Due to the high demand and sensitivity of this information, seating for Dr. Gilman’s private thyroid seminar is limited. It will be held on Tuesday, August 23rd at 7:00 PM at the Hampton Inn, 7740 Flying Cloud Drive, Eden Prairie. Please call 651-681-8199 to reserve a seat today! – Thursday, Aug. 18, 2011 – Richfield Sun-Current
