Cities cut road salt with new techniques

This winter, snowplows across the metro are trying new recipes to fight poor road conditions. To reduce use of salt, which melts ice but also impairs natural water bodies, municipalities are adding new technology and treatment techniques to the mix. In Richfield, for the first time, the city is pre-wetting roadways with a brine mixture, which helps salt stick to the road and increases the activation rate so less is necessary. Edina and Richfield are also outfitting snowplows with GPS devices to track the amount of salt, or chloride, used. Both cities received $20,000 matching grants from the Nine Mile Creek Watershed District this fall toward the effort. Kevin Bigalke, administrator for the Nine Mile Creek Watershed District, which is on the state’s list of impaired waters for chlorides, said salt will have to be cut by more than half in coming years to meet

As caretakers to their own endowment fund, the Richfield Foundation has been setting itself up to award monetary grants to programs that focus on youth, families and community activities for more than a decade. This year, that came in 11 separate grants totaling $10,300 that were awarded to a number of charitable organizations during the Dec. 14 Richfield City Council Meeting. “It’s a chance for us to find a way to give back to the community,” said Richfield Foundation board member Gordon Hanson. “We’ve focused on awarding grants to non-profit agencies and community projects that focus on youth, and also make Richfield a welcoming community for all people of diverse populations.” Each of the award winners had submitted an application to the Richfield Foundation, from which an all-volunteer board narrowed what was an original GRANTS: TO PAGE 11

Richfield church to host benefit Saturday for infant with heart problem A Richfield church will host a fundraising event Saturday for a 6-month-old boy born with a hole in his heart. The bake sale and silent auction to benefit Hoyt Kislenger of New Market is 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 18, at United Methodist Church of Peace, 6345 Xerxes Ave. S. A sloppy Joe lunch is also being served 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Kislenger was born six weeks prema-

CMYK

ture, weighing slightly less than 6 pounds. A routine ultrasound found a hole in his heart. Although it was expected that medication would control his symptoms until the hole closed, a subsequent ultrasound revealed there were two additional holes. The original hole was deemed to be too big and in a location where it would not close on its own. Of the other two holes, one has

closed, the other is on its way to doing so. The original hole, however, will require open-heart surgery. Kislenger spent two months in a neonatal intensive care unit, attached to a heart and oxygen monitor and using a feeding tube to help him eat. He requires special formula to ensure he is getting enough calories when he eats since his body burns extra calories due to the added work of eating and breathing

with a hole in his heart. He takes medication to help his heart pump better, receives weekly checkups and does not go to daycare or any place that he could be exposed to respiratory illness. His surgery is scheduled for early next year. His parents, who work in Edina and St. Louis Park, have used vacation and sick days to provide care for their son. Their friends are organizing Saturday’s benefit. Info: hoytsheart.blogspot.com.

Suspect apprehended in metro robberies thanks to tips BY KATIE MINTZ • SUN NEWSPAPERS

Public Safety

Law enforcement officials are crediting the capture of a man suspected in seven metro-area armed robberies to a combination of police work and civilian tips. Edina Police Department Det. Dave Carlson said following the Edina Crime Prevention Fund’s offer of a $5,000 reward in the case Wednesday, Dec. 8, he received four phone calls naming the same suspect. “It just started rolling,” said Carlson. “From the time we got that information, within four hours we had him in custody.” Dane Robert Nelson, 20, of Albert Lea was arrested Thursday, Dec. 9, at his father’s home in Albert Lea. He was charged Friday, Dec. 10, by the Hennepin County Attorney’s Office with one count first-degree aggravated robbery, a felony. He is being held on $200,000 bail in Hennepin County Jail and will likely face additional charges. Nelson is believed to have robbed

businesses in Edina, Richfield, Bloomington, Minneapolis and South St. Paul, as well as potentially Albert Lea. Carlson said a multi-agency investigation involving the police departments from all six cities led to the arrest of the suspect in the string of armed robberies that began Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 25. Carlson said the agencies determined early on they were looking for the same man. In each incident he was described as a white male in his 20s wearing similar clothing. As a result of news on the robberies and reward, numerous tips came in. Nelson is a former Edina resident last known to live in the city in 2008, said Carlson, and Edina residents identified him from surveillance images included in media reports. Detectives from multiple agencies were on scene to arrest Nelson, and also administer search warrants on his residence and vehicle.

Nelson was charged in the Bloomington incident. The other investigations will also be forwarded to the Hennepin County and Dakota County Attorney’s Offices for charges, said Carlson. At press time Monday, Dec. 13, Nelson had not yet been charged in the other robberies. According to the Bloomington charges, officers were dispatched Saturday, Dec. 4, to Bobby & Steve’s Auto World, 7920 France Ave. S., in Bloomington on report of a robbery. The store clerk told police a white male approached the counter with a gun demanding money. When at first the clerk did not respond, Nelson again pulled out the gun and said “give me the [expletive] money now or I will shoot you.” The clerk complied. Based on the clerk’s description of the man, Bloomington police linked him to the other robberies. Officers prepared a photographic line-up containing a photo of Nelson. The clerk positively identified him as the person who robbed the gas station.

When arrested, Nelson was wearing a coat that matched the description given by the clerk. If convicted, Nelson faces up to 20 years in prison and a $35,000 fine on the first-degree aggravated robbery charge. Nelson is also believed to be responsible for robberies Thursday, Nov. 25, and Wednesday, Dec. 1, at E-Z Stop Store, 1040 S. Concord St., in South St. Paul; Wednesday, Dec. 1, at Edina Market & Deli, 7102 Amundson Ave., in Edina; Wednesday, Dec. 1, and Saturday, Dec. 4, at Know Name Records, 6009 Portland Ave. S., in Minneapolis; and Saturday, Dec. 4, at SuperAmerica, 2913W. 66th St., in Richfield. Carlson said he could also be linked to a robbery in Albert Lea, but did not have additional information. Carlson said he was glad the reward helped in the apprehension of Nelson. “People were terrorized,” said Carlson. “He displayed a weapon every time he did the robberies. To take a guy off the street that committed eight robberies is very good.”

Blake JV hockey coach charged with sexual conduct BY MARC INGBER • SUN NEWSPAPERS A junior varsity hockey coach at The Blake School has been suspended after being charged with criminal sexual conduct. James Vandusartz, 56, of Burnsville was charged Dec. 3 with third-degree criminal sexual conduct for an alleged incident that occurred with a teenage girl at his home Nov. 28. The alleged victim is not a Blake student, according to the school. According to a Dakota County criminal complaint: A student under the age of 18, but older than 16, reported to Burnsville Police Nov. 29 that her instructor digitally penetrated her at his home in Burnsville the previous evening. On Nov. 30, she told officers Vandusartz had been attempting to contact her through e-mails and phone calls. Voicemail messages and e-mails were provided to police. Officers then arranged for a controlled phone call between the student and defendant Dec. 1. In that conversation, Vandusartz stated he felt there was a spark between them, and while they didn’t have to be lovers, he thought the student “enjoyed getting pleasure from him and he

enjoyed giving it.” The student arranged to meet him and his house the following morning. The morning of Dec. 2, Burnsville Police arrested Vandusartz at his home. He told officers that he had engaged in sexual contact with the student. Third-degree criminal sexual conduct carries a maximum penalty of 15 years in prison and $30,000. Vandusartz was not in custody as of Dec. 7. Blake spokesperson Cathy McLane stated that the school delivered instructions that he was not to have contact with any Blake students or families. Blake notified by e-mail and letter the families of all girls who were on the varsity or junior varsity girls hockey teams during the years Vandusartz was employed at the school, informing them of the facts and urging them to contact Blake or the investigating detective if they had any information. Blake staff also met with the girls currently on the team and are providing counseling and support to any who ask for it. Any community members with information that may bear on the investigation are asked to contact Detective Christi Carpenter of the Burnsville Police Department at 952-895-4592.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Government spending exacerbates problems To the editor: We should never have expected otherwise. The meeting of the 66th Street planning group, which included Richfield and Hennepin County officials, was all about spending more money for projects that could never make any return on investment. Of course the government planners expressed no concern for Richfield taxpayers. They cleverly set their agenda so that the residents were given choices to vote for one of their illconceived and expensive ideas, but none dared object to their foolish proposals. This whole notion that changing sidewalks and roadways will attract new businesses is ludicrous. Plenty of businesses on 66th Street have the entire government infrastructure at their steps and cannot survive. Are there any adults who believe that more government spending will revive anything? Too often we were told that new businesses on 66th Street would be market-driven. The market and the taxpayers have spoken and declared that gov-

ernment is the source of this economic downturn and more government spending always exacerbates the problems. Richard Iffert Eagan Iffert is an owner of commercial office space in Richfield.

Wonderful concert benefits music program To the editor: On Sunday, Dec. 5, I attended a benefit concert for the Richfield band program at Richfield United Methodist Church. The performance was by the Richfield Symphonic Band. It was wonderful! The church space and the time and talent of the Symphonic Band was donated, all to direct attention to the much-needed support for band music in the Richfield school system. Exposing young people to the joy of music and playing an instrument expands their appreciation of our world. This program badly needs funding and instruments, both new and used. If you can, please consider donating cash or an instrument. For information call Richfield High School at 612798-6106. Lonnie Dimond Richfield

Updated clinic rules help lay groundwork for healthier lives BY CATHY BRUNKOW GUEST COLUMNIST Hennepin County Public Health’s work to address overweight, obesity and chronic disease through Statewide Health Improvement Program funding is making a difference at a growing number of health-care clinics. These clinics are adopting guidelines developed by the Institute for Clinical Systems Improvement that will help healthcare providers work effectively with their patients to address overweight, obesity and other chronic diseases. Initiatives also are connecting patients to community opportunities for healthy eating, physical activity and smoking cessation. A good case in point is Hennepin Public Health’s work with Northwest Family Physicians clinics in Crystal, Plymouth and Rogers. Their commitment to helping patients who are overweight and obese has led to the introduction of group weight management classes at the Crystal clinic. These monthly sessions include group education, individual assessments and goal setting, led by Tammy Gregerson, an Northwest Family physician’s assistant. “I believe the visits represent an extremely effective approach to weight management,” Gregerson said. “The group setting provides accountability, support and an opportunity to learn from others. We try to create a fun and relaxed atmosphere that helps participants feel comfortable enough to share intimate details about their lifestyles.” One participant, Lori Goble, said she appreciates the moral support of people who share similar issues.

“The group is my cheering section and I want to get that pat on the back for a job well done,” she said. “What I want is to be part of a successful group of people that will not only stand by me, but pick me up if I stumble and get me back on track again.” Another participant Jennifer Bauer said any nervousness she had going into the classes soon disappeared when she realized everyone was in the same boat. “It’s great being in a group versus a one-on-one office visit because we learn from each other,” Bauer said. “Imagine a group of people in your same situation telling you the best ways to prepare meals and where to get the best low-calorie snacks, meals and dessert options. Bauer said clapping and encouraging words are a staple at each meeting. And there’s plenty to clap to about. Some members have already lost weight, quit smoking, lowered medication levels or lowered blood sugar levels. “I am trying to do this in small increments,” Goble said. “I still have a long way to go, but I am on my way. I have been able to control my blood sugar, I have lost 56 pounds and I feel fabulous!” Another group participant Linda Zastwany said she has taken her cue from another class member who loved the motivation gained from the group meetings. For the Northwest Family Physicians weight management class schedule or to register, contact Patty at pattyl@nwfpc.com or 763-504-6521. Brunkow is a Registered Nurse working with the SHIP health-care initiative through Hennepin County Public Health.

Humane Society switching to surrender-by-appointment policy BY SUE WEBBER • SUN NEWSPAPERS The Animal Humane Society in Golden Valley is asking the community to partner with them on a new method for giving up animals for adoption. “We continue to see a disparity between the number of animals being surrendered and the number of people electing to adopt,” said Janelle Dixon, president and CEO of the Animal Humane Society. “We really need the community to be part of this. This is a community problem.” Humane Society officials announced Dec. 8 that beginning Jan. 2, 2011, the facility will accept animals only by appointment, a process that will include a discussion about why a pet owner is surrendering the animal and other options or resources available to them. The process also will include a physical examination and evaluation of the animal, and the results will be shared with the owner at the appointment. Dixon said the current walk-in system is time-consuming, often lengthens an animal’s stay at the shelter, and can lead to overcrowding and illness in the kennels.

“Our goal is to provide better care for animals and provide better homes for pets,” said Kathie Johnson, director of Animal Services at the AHS. The five Humane Societies – in Golden Valley, Buffalo, Coon Rapids, St. Paul and Woodbury — collectively take in more than 33,000 animals from the community on a walk-in basis each year, officials said. The number of cats taken in has reached crisis proportions, officials said: 21,000 felines a year, 64 percent of all the animals brought to the facility. “Animals often are left with us with little or no information on their health, their behavior or how they lived,” Johnson said. “That model creates a lot of uncertainty, and it causes undue stress on the animals.” The new animal admissions model is part of an initiative called Bound for Home, focused on reducing euthanasia. The facility’s rate of euthanasia was reduced by seven percent in 2009, officials said. “We can provide options and resources to help people keep their pets at home,” Johnson said. “There are options people are not always aware of.

[Animal] behavior can be challenging for a family, but often can be easy to solve.” Ray Aboyan, chief operating officer at the Animal Human Society, said officials at the facility researched the new model by visiting similar operations in Portland, San Diego and New York. “Each has had success,” Aboyan said. “The community embraced the change.” None of the other facilities has found that the new model leads to an increase in abandoned animals, Aboyan said. In the spring of 2011, Humane Society officials plan to offer a mobile and affordable spay and neuter program in partnership with a private practice veterinarian. The Humane Society will continue to accept stray animals, officials said. “The goal is to reunite animals with their owners,” Johnson said. If someone who finds a stray animal is unable to keep it until the owner is located, Johnson said, “We will hold the pet here.” Beginning Dec. 20, anyone wishing to surrender an animal may call for an appointment at the Animal Admissions Center: 763-412-4969.

Janelle Dixon, president and CEO of the Animal Humane Society, announced changes that will take place at all five of the AHS locations on Jan. 1, 2011. (Photo by Sue Webber • Sun Newspapers)

Don’t W letethe concern in area e k bedbugs l y S u bite! p e r Critters S a v i a n growing g s ! BY SUE WEBBER • SUN NEWSPAPERS Is something bugging you this holiday season? If it’s an actual bug bite, you aren’t alone. Even though the summertime mosquitoes are long gone, they have friends in warm, cozy places that are itching to make you scratch. Across the county, an onslaught of bedbugs has confounded city inspectors, shamed and frustrated property owners

and pushed pest control companies into high gear. Bedbugs are small, flat, mahoganycolored insects about the size of a wood tick that feed on the blood of humans and other warm-blooded animals. They are nocturnal, hiding during the day in the cracks and crevices of a bed, bed frame and other furnishings. “They’re growing by leaps and bounds,” New Hope city inspector Chuck Tatro said. “Over the years, the

W e e k l y

EPA has outlawed so many chemicals to treat bedbugs. There’s nothing to stop them. Exterminators are pulling their hair out, trying different methods.” Bedbugs were pretty much eradicated in the U.S. in the ‘40s and ‘50s, though a lot of foreign countries have always had them, Tatro said. Eradication in earlier years was accomplished with the pesticide DDT. DDT and its cousins have since been banned because of environmental concerns.

S u p e r

Some chemicals are permitted by the EPA that are safe for use around children and pets, but they must be used by knowledgeable technicians, Tatro said. The tiny bugs like to burrow in mattresses, drapery folds, luggage pockets or anywhere else that’s dark and warm. They’ve been found in apartment buildings, private homes, hotels, theaters, airplanes, office buildings, taxies, boats, BEDBUGS: TO NEXT PAGE

FROM PREVIOUS PAGE trains, buses, thrift stores, garage sales, schools and even doctor’s offices. “They’ll crawl into any little crack or crevice, including women’s purses and backpacks,” Tatro said. In 2009, New York had 426 reported cases of bed bugs in schools, according to Tatro. While not always visible to the naked eye, the bugs make their presence known through bites, or by nasty stains left on walls or floors. It has nothing to do with sloppy housekeeping or filth, according to the experts. “Anyone can get them, regardless of income or living standard,” Tatro said. “Anyone can bring them home.” Bedbugs don’t pose a health hazard, experts say. Indeed, some people are immune to their bites. “There’s no evidence they cause any illness,” Tatro said. “One person might get bit and have no reaction. Another person might itch and develop a secondary infection.” But one of the problems in eradicating them is that people are embarrassed to admit they have them. “This is the most sensitive thing we do,” said Eric Sauber, a supervisor and area manager at Adam’s Pest Control in Hamel. The company has trained two dogs to sniff out bedbugs: Hector the Bedbug Detector, a year-old Doberman lab mix, and 2-year-old Marvin the Bug Beagle. Each of the dogs has Facebook and Twitter accounts: HectorTDetective and MarvinTheBeagle may be found on Twitter, and HectorDetector and MarvinBeagle are on Facebook. Four Adam’s employees spent a week in Kansas City training with the dogs, and now use them to hunt down bedbugs on a daily basis, according to Todd Leyse, owner of Adam’s Pest Control. “A number of commercial customers want us to inspect their facilities on a regular basis,” Leyse said. “They want to be proactive.”

Marvin the Bug Beagle, one of two new dog employees at Adam’s Pest Control in Hamel, has discovered the hidden bedbug culprits in a training room, and is showing his handler he’s ready for the food reward he receives when he’s working. (Submitted photo courtesy of Adam’s Pest Control). Finding the bugs isn’t always easy. “We have to roust them out to find them,” Sauber said. “They dig pretty deep. They’re not moving around.” If bedbugs are detected, technicians need to determine whether to apply chemicals or use 120-degree heat. Many insecticides aren’t effective because bedBEDBUGS: TO PAGE 19

federal and state water quality standards. The Nine Mile Creek Watershed District covers about 50 square miles around the creek including most of Edina, most of Bloomington, and portions of Minnetonka, Eden Prairie, Hopkins and Richfield. Bigalke said salt contamination peaks from January to April, during the same time salt used to keep roads, parking lots and sidewalks clear. The salt dissolves in water and enters creeks and other natural water bodies through the storm system. “Nine Mile Creek is a freshwater system. The fish, insects and other wildlife that are dependent on the water in Nine Mile Creek are dependent on freshwater,” said Bigalke. “Salt affects their ability to breath, it affects the habitat and it begins to have a real negative impact on the overall ecosystem.” Nine Mile Creek is not alone. This year, the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency added nine water bodies primarily in the metro to the list for chloride impairment, more than doubling the number previously. In the Twin Cities, the agency has brought together metro area stakeholders to develop a chloride management plan to meet requirements for impaired waters, and protect waters that are not yet impaired. Bigalke said a study detailing the damage at Nine Mile Creek is in the final stages of review by the state agency and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Once approved, a reduction implementation strategy will be developed. “We will have to achieve about a 61 percent reduction in the level of chlorides in the creek,” said Bigalke. “You’re going to have to make some pretty significant reductions in what you’re applying.” The matching grants are one way of encouraging work toward that goal, he said. Residents, businesses and municipalities can apply early in 2011 for Nine Mile Creek Watershed District grants covering up to 75 percent of project costs, with a cap for individual residents at $3,000, townhome associations at $10,000 and businesses and municipalities at $25,000. Bigalke said the $100,000 given out each year helps with a number of water quality issues, but a pot could be set aside for chloride reduction in the future. Chris Link, operations manager for Richfield’s streets and forestry division, said plow operators are enthusiastic

This winter, city of Edina snowplows will be outfitted with GPS devices to monitor salt use with a grant from the Nine Mile Creek Watershed District. Municipalities across the metro are working to reduce the use of salt, which enters creeks and lakes and harms aquatic life. (Photo courtesy city of Edina) about the efforts being implemented in the city with Nine Mile Creek Watershed District’s help. “They’ve really taken to it. It’s almost become a task to get them to put salt down,” said Link. Richfield is using its $20,000 grant, plus about $15,000 of its own money, to purchase brine tanks for five of its seven trucks, and a 5,500-gallon storage tank for the Public Works facility. Two of the city’s trucks are scheduled to be replaced next year, so will not be upgraded. “We have never conducted a pre-wetting or anti-icing program, and we’re going to start that,” said Link. Antiicing involves spraying chemicals on the street prior to snow to keep ice from forming. The city of Richfield will also install GPS devices and tracking software to monitor salt use on the city’s 125 miles of roads. Richfield is also in the Minnehaha Creek Watershed District. Link said reducing salt could mean a significant savings for the city. He said while a 60 percent reduction is the ultimate goal, but initially the city is shooting for at least 30 percent. “Salt is expensive,” he said. Richfield uses approximately 1,500 tons of salt annually, and at about $65 a ton, Link said even a 30 percent reduction would mean savings close to $30,000. He said, however, safety remains the city’s top priority, and it will use the salt necessary to keep roads clear. Richfield expects to have the brine and GPS systems in operation by the end of this winter and the effort will begin full-fledged next season. The city of Edina, which already does pre-wetting, will install GPS units on all 24 its snowplows this winter to monitor salt use and upgrade four trucks with calibration devices.

“For us, beyond knowing what quantity of salt we purchase each year, we don’t have a good grasp of how much salt is applied in each watershed district,” said Edina Utility Engineer Jesse Struve. About two-thirds of the city is in the Nine Mile Creek Watershed District, and a third is in the Minnehaha Creek Watershed District. The calibration devices will allow operators to fine-tune the amount of salt applied to the road depending on weather conditions. Paired with the GPS system, the city will be able to evaluate its placement. He estimated the total project would cost about $28,000 plus labor, supplemented with the $20,000 grant. “What’s going to be helpful is that we can pull up where the salt was applied and we can review whether it’s being applied in the correct matter and quantity,” he said. Other municipalities are also making strides, said Bigalke. Several cities in the Nine Mile Creek Watershed District, and Hennepin County, have made changes to reduce salt use and become more effective with application. He said Eden Prairie has outfitted its trucks with GPS. Some also have temperature probes to gauge how much salt should be used. Salt alone is not effective in temperatures below about 15 degrees. The city of Minnetonka is developing an advanced pre-wetting and anti-icing program for its roadways. “We have been using liquids to treat salt for probably 10 years to reduce quantities applied,” said Minnetonka Public Works Operations Manager Tom Struve, no relation to Edina’s Jesse ROAD SALT: TO NEXT PAGE

FROM PREVIOUS PAGE Struve. “To target Nine Mile Creek this last summer and fall, we installed a very high-end brine manufacturing facility with the capacity to also serve Hennepin County.” Hennepin County, which has a need for additional access to brine with the addition of pre-wetting tanks on all of its new plows, entered a contract with the city. The Minnetonka Public Works facility will produce a new “hot mix” for lower temperatures comprised of 10 percent GeoMelt, a product made from sugar beets, 10 percent magnesium chloride and 80 percent salt brine. “That will take us to temperatures down below zero,” said Tom Struve. “Salt and brine are good down to about 7 or 8 degrees.” With a $5,000 grant from the Minnesota Local Road Research Board, which shares transportation research with city and county engineers, Minnetonka also equipped eight trucks with GPS. The trucks operate in the Nine Mile Creek Watershed District, which covers about a third of the city. Minnetonka is also in the Minnehaha Creek, Riley Purgatory Bluff Creek and Bassett Creek watersheds.

“In the Nine Mile Creek District, we have also equipped all of those truck with pre-wetting tanks so they will use liquid the entire winter,” he said. In 2011, Tom Struve said all 19 vehicles in the city fleet would likely be upgraded with liquid units. Bigalke said to meet the roughly 60 percent reduction level it is also incumbent upon individual residents and businesses to change habits. “It’s not just a city or road authority issue,” he said. “The cities are making some efforts to reduce the chlorides but it’s also important for residents and businesses to become more effective with their application.” He said there are several ways for individuals to reduce their use. The most effective is early shoveling. Shoveling, snow blowing and sweeping can prevent ice from forming, eliminating the need for salt. Other tips include applying a liquid deicer to sidewalks, driveways, and steps before snowstorms to minimize snow and ice build-up. If salt is used, Bigalke said it should only be used in conditions when it is effective. If leftover salt crystals are visible, in future applications, less salt is necessary. Leftover salt should be swept up for reuse or thrown away in the trash.

Grants FROM PAGE 1 list of 30 to the 11 organizations awarded a grant this year. The largest of those grants went to three separation organizations. Loaves and Fishes, VEAP and Bridging were each awarded $1,200. Loaves and Fishes will use its money serve hot meals to low-income residents. VEAP will purchase groceries to provide to those in need, while Bridging has earmarked its grant to buy furnishings to low-income families. The City of Richfield Kids at Home Program, Richfield Public Schools and Richfield Ready were given $1,000 apiece. Bloomington Public Health, the City of Richfield and The Family Partnership and MIRA were awarded $750 each, and the Fraser School was given a grant for $700 to update accessible playground equipment for students with special needs. “Each of this year’s award recipients were the type of organization we try to help,” Hanson said. “We are very excited

11

to be able to award them with some money so that they can turn around and use it for helping the people of Richfield and its surrounding area.” The final total awarded was based on a formula used by the Richfield Foundation board that tried to find the best way to both award the grants, and keep the endowment fund going for future years. Every penny set up within that endowment fund came through various donations to the Richfield Foundation, and not one cent goes towards salaries for administrators. “Everything we do is entirely on a volunteer basis,” Hanson said. Most of the donations put towards the endowment fund come from community companies and individuals. Charitable contributions to the Richfield Foundation can be made by either sending them to P.O. Box 23077, Richfield MN 55423, or at GiveMN.org. “With the donations we receive, that endowment will be there for years to come, and will always be a source for funds that can be given away to worthy projects,” Hanson said.

Biggest hockey save came after the game was over Golden Valley honors man who saved a life at Breck Ice Arena BY SUE WEBBER • SUN NEWSPAPERS Goalie Andy Bauer and his Ice Sages teammates won their hockey game Nov. 14 at the Breck Ice Arena in Golden Valley. But the win pales in comparison to the most important save of all that night: Bauer’s life. The man credited with saving his life, Casey O’Brien of St. Paul, received a Citizen’s Commendation award Dec. 7 at the Golden Valley City Council meeting, surrounded by Bauer and other teammates who helped. “It’s always great to recognize citizens,” Golden Valley Police Chief Stacy Altonen said. “Mr. O’Brien’s quick thinking and swift response were instrumental in saving the victim’s life. This really was a team effort.”

Bauer, 38, a native of Crystal and an Armstrong High School graduate who now lives in St. Michael and plays in the Adult Hockey Association, said he felt fine at the end of the Nov. 14 game against the Fighting Loons. But in the locker room, he noticed some tightness in his chest and soreness in his forearms. He chalked it up to having shoveled heavy snow in his driveway the day before. His teammates helped him get his gear off and brought it to Bauer’s car. “I was going to stay and watch the next game,” Bauer said. “I didn’t want to go home. He said the pain stopped after he took an aspirin in the locker room, but then it started again. Fellow teammates Steve Hoglund, Paul Berman and Scott Bredael, who had stayed with Bauer to watch the next game, suggested that they go to the emergency room, and he agreed. “As we were walking down the hall, I felt really light-headed, and then I HEART ATTACK: TO PAGE 14

Heart attack FROM PAGE 12 leaned against the wall and collapsed,” Bauer said. The next thing he remembers is waking up in the back of an ambulance “going full bore with lights and siren” to North Memorial Medical Center in Robbinsdale. The paramedics told him his heart had stopped and that O’Brien, the captain of the opposing team, had started CPR and used a defibrillator to shock Bauer’s heart before the police and paramedics arrived. “That was a big surprise,” Bauer said. “There’s no history of heart problems in my family.” Bauer’s father was contacted, and he called Bauer’s wife to tell her Andy had collapsed. It wasn’t until she got to the hospital that she learned her husband had suffered a heart attack. During his four-day hospital stay, Bauer was told he’d had a 100 percent blocked left main coronary artery, called “the widow-maker.” “Obviously, most people don’t survive it,” said Bauer, who underwent a procedure in the hospital to place a stent to relieve the blockage.

O’Brien, 27, now an unemployed college student who formerly worked in pediatric resuscitation at Children’s Hospital, said, “I saw the [defibrillator] case there, and I knew how it worked.” He’d never met Bauer before that night, O’Brien said, adding with a laugh, “except for scoring on him a bunch of times.” Ironically, there are four physicians who usually play hockey on the men’s team, but none was there the night Bauer had his heart attack. O’Brien said the whole incident happened so fast there was no time to think about being nervous or scared. Scott Bredael, a teammate from Excelsior, remembered O’Brien grabbing the defibrillator and “giving Andy a few breaths.” Bauer, the father of a 2-year-old son, works in information services at Syncada in downtown Minneapolis, returned to his job Dec. 6. He said he can’t wait to get back on the ice. “I’m going to play hockey again, once I get cleared,” Bauer said. “I have two to three weeks of cardio rehab. If I get cleared to play, our first game will be at the same ice rink where I had the heart attack.” In the meantime, he’s still going to his team’s games and cheering them on, Bauer said.

YUWA FROM PREVIOUS PAGE “It’s a very unique, progressive way of working with youth over in India,” said Odland, who is a web communications coordinator for Cargill. “Empowering young women primarily though sport has allowed them to gain self-confidence, become healthier and most importantly, receive better education for them to succeed in life.” Greg Deming, Yuwa’s director of operations who works as a senior trader and strategist for Simplex Investments in Chicago, said he and his classmates always wanted to do something to better the world. “When you see how other people are doing things, it makes you realize how fortunate you were to have the community support and infrastructure that goes around everything you did in Edina,” he said. Gastler was teaching English in India when he contacted Deming with an idea. “He gave me a call in early October 2008 and he asked me if I was interested in sponsoring girls’ education,” said Deming. “I said why don’t we do one better than that and create change and do something bigger and better.” Yuwa was founded in the Hutup village in Jharkhand, one of the poorest regions of India characterized by gender inequality and minimal opportunity for youth. It used the popular sport of soccer, or football as it’s called in India, to engage and organize the local population around three initiatives: education, health and livelihood. “The impact we have in India relative to the impact we can have in our local community is astronomically different,” said Deming, who is planning the event with brother Tim Deming, a 2003 Edina graduate and fundraising coordinator for Yuwa. “For the amount, we could help a few kids here, but we’ve been able to engage 1,000 people in India,” he said. Since starting in October 2008 with “15 girls kicking around a soccer ball,” Yuwa has grown to more than 250 participants and more than 1,000 people involved supporting the organization, said Deming. “Out of a village of 10,000, 10 percent of the people are in some way tangibly touched by Yuwa,” said Deming. In the last year, Yuwa’s programs utilizing team sport as a platform into the three core initiatives have grown fourfold, he said. This October, Peterson, director of finance and legal for Yuwa, even left his job at a California hedge fund to join Yuwa on the ground in India.

Four Edina High School graduates will host a fundraiser for Yuwa, a nonprofit in India that empowers female youth through team sports, Thursday, Dec. 23, in Edina. The men, including Yuwa Executive Director Franz Gastler (pictured), founded the organization in October 2008. (Submitted photo) Deming said they’ve partnered with a local low-cost private school. Yuwa participants attend the school for free and receive a much better education than available at government schools. In return, Yuwa runs study clubs, athletics and other social activities at the school, as well as a community center. Preventative healthcare and outreach efforts are also offered at the community center. In addition, Yuwa is now providing grant and micro loans for women. One project financed the construction of a water pump in the village, saving its women a two-mile walk to the nearest facility. Deming said they are gaining a lot of ground in India. Recently, stories about Yuwa have been published in Sports Illustrated India, Business Outlook and Tehelka, a prominent Indian news source “We’re looking within two years to expand to 2,000 girls and we’re looking to continue our hub and spoke model and reach out to more and more villages,” said Deming. Through that model, Yuwa has expanded into the Hesatu village in Ormanjhi with an 18-year-old graduate of its original cluster leading the program. “Our hopes and dreams for them are to become social changes in their region in India and spread that to future generations,” said Odland.

Bedbugs FROM PAGE 9 bugs have grown resistant to them, Leyse said. “It’s the homeowner’s decision, but the reality is heat is the best way to go,� Leyse said. “With heat, I can give you back your house tonight. It uses far less chemicals; it’s far greener.� He estimated the cost of eradication by heat at $3,000 for a 3,000 square-foot space, and something less than $1,000 for a conventional area using chemicals. Though a homeowner’s reaction might be to grab a bug bomb to attack the bugs, Tatro says makes things worse. “The spray won’t kill them, but it will annoy them and drive them to other parts of the house or apartment,� he said. In addition to checking bedding, property owners are advised to check outlet cover, drapes, baseboards and even picture frames for dark rusty spots on sheets, mattresses or walls, egg shells or shedded skin, blood stains or crushed bugs, and a sweet, musty offensive odor. “Bedbugs are pretty much nocturnal, but if they get hungry enough, they’ll feed during the day,� Tatro said. If bugs are found and eradication is

undertaken, clothing, linens and other items need to be washed in hot water and dried under high heat. Bedbugs were discussed at a meeting last month of Brooklyn Center’s Association for Responsible Management, according to Jesse Anderson, the city’s housing and community standards supervisor. “We have received a few questions from tenants and managers over the past few months on this topic,� Anderson said. “The owners have concerns about inspecting and identifying the pest, as well as who is responsible for the high cost of treating for the pest.� If renters in Brooklyn Center suspect they have bedbugs and call the city, they are asked to put their complaint in writing, and then city representatives meet with the resident and landlord to verify the infestation. People living in single-family homes don’t generally call the city about bug infestations, Anderson said. If bedbugs show up in a business or hotel, those establishments typically deal with the county health department, he said. City inspection departments rarely hear about outbreaks of bedbugs in their towns. “Generally speaking, hotels, stores do not want to be associated with [bedbugs]

or other pest problems or infestations,â&#x20AC;? said Scott Hickok, Community Development director for the city of Fridley. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If they have had the problem, they would not announce it. They would likely quickly move to eradicate the problem and move on.â&#x20AC;? Stacy Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Reilly, president and CEO of Plunkettâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pest Control in Fridley, said travelers should not over-react about the possibility of bedbugs in a motel or hotel room. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you see one or two, the odds of taking them home are exceedingly low,â&#x20AC;? Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Reilly said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bedbugs are private and shy. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not looking to go home with you.â&#x20AC;? Bedbugs are attracted to humansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; exhalation, body heat and sweat, according to Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Reilly. So her recommendations for wary travelers who are entering a hotel or motel room is to start at the head of the bed and check for evidence of bugs in a two-foot circle. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pull out the night stand drawer,â&#x20AC;? Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Reilly said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Check the seams of the mattress. The bugs love, love, love the particleboard on the back cleat that holds the headboard to the wall. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you spend a minute checking and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see anything, odds are youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to be fine. If you see bedbugs, turn around and walk out.â&#x20AC;?

19

One other travel tip from Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Reilly: if you arrive home from a trip with any concerns about your clothing or linens, put everything in a hot dryer for 15 minutes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That will kill bugs in all stages, and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be more than good to go,â&#x20AC;? she said. As for your luggage, bedbugs are extremely susceptible to rubbing alcohol, Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Reilly said. Travelers are advised to fill a spray bottle with rubbing alcohol and soak every part of their luggage with the solution. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You need to hit them between the eyes,â&#x20AC;? she said. In addition to pest control firms, city and county officials do what they can to inform and educate residents about bedbugs. Tatro said he has been as proactive as possible, by sending information to landlords and property managers. Leyse serves on a national bedbug task force and has spoken on the problem on a national level. He said Minnesota Multi- Housing Agency offers seminars on the subject several times a year. Someday, the embarrassment and shame businesses and property owners feel at discovering bedbugs will be replaced by a desire to let the public know theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been proactive in dealing with eradication, Sauber said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t there yet,â&#x20AC;? he said.

A&J Painting is a family owned and operated business. A&J Painting is a family owned and operated business that was started 15 years ago with my sons Andrew, Jeremiah, and David. In todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economic climate we have maintained a healthy business due to our professional approach and work ethic that carries the highest standards of quality for every job. We have thrived over the years because of the volume of callbacks and customer referrals from previously contracted jobs. No contract is too big or too small for our company. A&J Painting operates as a licensed and insured painting company that offers trained and skilled (journeyman) employeeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s to paint and remodel your home or business. All of our employeeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s have been with the company for several years and each has been trained to the highest standards. We take pride in the honesty, integrity, and character of the young men we have employed. My son Andrew is a highly skilled and trained carpenter. He also does taping, knock down ceilings, tiling, installs plumbing, lighting fixtures, countertops and offers many types of custom carpentry. Andrew operates a professional spray booth off site for finishes on cabinetry and furniture. His current focus is on remodeling, updating, and modernizing homes and

businesses. Andrewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s perfectionist approach to every job and the extent of his skill set have made him one of the best craftsman in the Twin Cities. My other two sons run the painting end of the business and are also professionally trained Artists. Jeremiah attended the Minneapolis College of Art and Design and later studied under the mentorship of the nationally renowned portrait and fresco painter Mark Balma. David similarly was accepted into a full time master apprenticeship program at the young age of 16 at the highly respected Atelier Lack Studio. They followed in the family tradition of mastering a professional craft and skill which they have brought to our company. Between the two they offer 25 years of experience painting interior and exterior homes in the metro area with our family business. A&J Painting takes great pride in our ability to make a true and lasting impression on you. I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tell you how many letters and calls I have received over the years from customers who just wanted to share with me what a great job we did. We hope to have the opportunity to do so with you as well. We are only a call or email away to offer you a free estimate of our professional services.

In the Community, With the Community, For the Community

A night to honor champions of Richfield It was as much a fiesta as it was an awards ceremony. Many of Richfield’s neighborhood champions gathered in the basement of Oak Grove Lutheran Church Dec. 9. With friends and family members looking on, they received a medal and certificate honoring their community involvement. Nominated by community members, the winners were formally thanked during the fifth annual City of Richfield Neighborhood Champions banquet. Winners were recognized for a variety of contributions to the community, from leadership of a community organization to volunteering time to a community service organization, such as Volunteers Enlisted to Assist People, the Bloomington-based organization that serves as the food shelf for Bloomington, Edina and Richfield. Driving seniors to and from a doctor’s appointment and mowing the lawn of a foreclosed home in the neighborhood, those were eligible for recognition, too. The awards are intended to honor the many contributions made within the city, regardless of prominence. The Family Partnership, an organization that helps families in the Twin Cities improve their lives through a variety of services, sponsored the awards and banquet. The Family Partnership has four offices, including one in Bloomington. Attendees were treated to Mexican fare and cultural entertainment featuring Mexican and Aztec dancing. Information about The Family Partnership is available online at thefamilypartnership.org. — Compiled by Mike Hanks

BY GREG KLEVEN • SUN NEWSPAPERS Richfield hit the ice with success and won three consecutive boys hockey games before suffering its first loss last week. The Spartans, 3-1 overall, defeated Mounds Park Academy 6-1 Dec. 4 at home as Tyler Martinez scored two goals. Other Richfield scorers were Grant Bischof, Tim Harris, Jon Hauri and Mick Dhein. P.J. Peterson and Dhein had two assists each. Also picking up assists were Ryan Guggenberger, Kevin Krohn, Martinez, Ryan Erickson and Hauri. Richfield goalie Jon McGinness made 13 saves to preserve the victory. Martinez had a hat trick in Richfield’s 5-2 victory over St. Paul Como Park Dec. 7. Dhein and Bischof also scored for the Spartans. Assists went to Guggenberger, Harris, Dhein (two), Peterson and Tyler Klopp. Goalie Donovan Keller made 23 saves. Richfield’s three-game winning streak was snapped in an 8-5 loss to Providence Academy Dec. 9. Dhein and Klopp scored two goals each. Andre Hill had the other Spartan goal. Hauri finished with two assists. McGinness made 12 saves. “We have been getting a lot of production from our first line of Martinez, Dhein and Hauri,” said Richfield coach John Christ. “Martinez leads us in goals with nine and Dhein has 10 points. Hauri has made nice contributions to that line as well.” The coach added that the defensemen, including Peterson, Klopp and Erickson, have played well all season.

Becca Hendrickson The Richfield girls hockey goaltender has been busy and effective with a save percentage of .930 after seven games.

Kelly Mellon Another efficient local goaltender is this Holy Angels girls hockey player. Mellon maintained a .957 save percentage in four games. The Stars were 1-3-0 overall.

Alex Mendele, a sophomore forward, broke his leg and will be sidelined for most of the season. Matt Krohn, a senior defenseman, separated a shoulder and will miss several weeks. Sam Schrick, a junior forward, is also out with an injured wrist. Richfield will host St. Paul Highland Park at 3:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 18.

Richfield (1-6-2) will host Holy Family at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 21.

Spartan boys basketball will rely on speed, quickness Garvis, Etienne, Johnson will serve as tri-captains BY GREG KLEVEN • SUN NEWSPAPERS Richfield’s first-year head boys basketball coach Omar McMillan promises

his team will play aggressively. “We have a fast, quick team and will get after it at both ends of the court,” said McMillan. “Our veteran players seem to play well together. “We could surprise a lot of people. We have to stay together as a team and avoid injuries.” Richfield was supposed to open its

season against Minneapolis Southwest Dec. 11, but the game was postponed because of the weekend snowstorm that hit Minnesota hard. Richfield will play crosstown rival Holy Angels at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 22. BASKETBALL: TO NEXT PAGE

The Richfield High gymnast had a strong performance during the Spartans’ dual meet victory over South St. Paul last week. Tseng won vault and placed second in allaround, balance beam and floor exercise. She was third on uneven bars.

Alyson Niesen The Richfield junior forward scored the winning goal with 2 minutes, 2 seconds remaining in overtime as the girls hockey team edged Robbinsdale Cooper 2-1 Dec. 7. It was the Spartans’ first win of the season.

Spartans defeat South St. Paul in opener BY GREG KLEVEN • SUN NEWSPAPERS Richfield graduated five seniors off its girls gymnastics team from last season. However, Spartan head coach Nikki Saf-Sanders is still hoping for a high finish in the Classic Suburban Conference this winter. Richfield tri-captains Moriah Greenblat, Sara Tseng and Kelsey Metz are veteran gymnasts. Steph McGinness is another returning Spartan gymnast. Courtney Wood and Shayla Jeffers join the Spartan varsity. Wood and Jeffers “were new to gymnastics last year but have made amazing strides this year,” said Saf-Sanders. “Also competing on varsity will be Justine Hogan, who is a hard worker. “We have about 15 girls new to gymnastics. They have already come a long way during the first month of the season.” Richfield’s assistant coaches are Matt Norris and Josiah Cree. This is SafSanders’ 10th season as head coach. “We are hoping for a second-place finish in the conference again this season,” said Saf-Sanders. “But it will be tough to replace those five seniors who graduated last season.” Richfield opened its conference dual meet season with a 114.30-106.10 victory over South St. Paul Dec. 9. Tseng was first on vault and had second-place finishes on balance beam, allaround and floor exercise. She was third on uneven bars. Miller placed second on vault and bars and third in all-around. Metz, Richfield’s top all-arounder, missed the meet with an injury. Richfield also competed in the Austin Invitational, scoring 123.70 to finish fourth of eight teams. Tseng was second on bars and fourth on vault. Miller finished third on bars while Metz came in fifth on beam. The Spartans will host Mahtomedi at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 16.

Girls hockey fundraiser Richfield High School’s girls hockey team is sponsoring a fundraising event from 4:30-8:30 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 18, at Culver’s restaurant in Bloomington.
