Saturday is a day to celebrate Bloomington Heritage Days slated to run all day Sept. 17 BY MIKE HANKS • SUN NEWSPAPERS As a community festival, Heritage Days aims to provide something for everyone, and it would be hard to argue that it will fail to deliver. The second annual Bloomington festival spans the entire day Saturday, Sept. 17, along Lyndale Avenue, north of 98th Street. A few morning activities will take place, with most activities beginning 1 p.m. The festival is intended to be all-inclusive, according to organizer Gina Szafraniec. “We’re all coming together,” she said, “having a great time and celebrating.” The festival is an annual community gathering that’s not tied to a holiday. It’s Bloomington’s version of the annual small town festival that can be found across Minnesota, according to organizer Tom Kendall, who spearheaded the inaugural event last year. The 2010 festival attracted more than 6,000 people throughout the afternoon last year, Kendall estimates. It was hard to determine the attendance as there’s no admission ticket required or entrance gate to the festivities, which were spread

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.

COMMUNITY NOTES Energy forum set for Sept. 27 in Bloomington “The Ways Minnesotans Can Benefit from our State’s Abundant Energy Resources,” will be the topic of a forum to be presented at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 27, at the Bloomington City Council Chambers, 1800 Old Shakopee Road. Tables with displays and information on renewable energy will be available for the public to view. The forum will start at 7 p.m. with Lynn Hinkle, policy development director of the Minnesota Solar Industries Association, to discuss “The Green-Blue Alliance: Solar Energy and Labor Issues in Relation to Clean Energy Development.” John Farrell, director of the Energy Self Reliant States and Communities Program, will also present “How

Distributed Wind Development Can Grow Jobs and Contribute to Economic Development in Minnesota,” and George Crocker, executive director of the North American Water Office, will address “The Importance of Community Organizing for Developing Distributed Renewable Energy.” This is the first of two forums on Minnesota’s energy future. The second one on “State and National Policies Needed for the Transition to Renewable Energy,” will be Nov. 1. The two forums will show that with the right policies, Minnesota’s transition to clean energy can bring home the $20 billion dollars currently sent out of state annually for fossil fuels. The forums are sponsored by Think Again MN. Info: (Carol Woehrer) or 612-702-3917 (Jeremy Wieland).

Habits and photographs: Before you get too far into reading this column, I should warn you it’s just another spiel about one of my favorite hobbies. OK, disclaimer out of the way, let’s get into it. I’m a nut for instant film photography. Polaroid, Impossible Project, Fuji Instax, I don’t much care as long as I can shoot with a simple plastic camera and have the photo in my hands in less than a minute. I’ve got a box of exposures I’ve taken over the years, the vast majority of which are not spectacular, and I add to it on a regular basis, taking pictures of family, friends, landscapes and, too often, my cats. I don’t think it’s about the immediacy quite so much as it is about the aesthetic and the tactile pleasure of holding a picture in your hand. And, somewhat more importantly, it’s about connecting with family. As a kid, I spent time (lots of time) in my dad’s photography studio in Minneapolis, watching photographers, assistants, stylists and art directors work. I remember particularly watching my dad — who I generally refer to by his first name, Larry, a habit some may question as

To the editor: Shortly after noon Saturday, Aug. 20, I was heading to the Bloomington farmers market. I had crossed Old Shakopee Road at the intersection, tripped at the curb and fell on my face.

To place a classified ad: irregular. I particularly remember Larry shooting everything with Polaroid before shooting film on projects so he could get a read on what the pictures would look like later. For years, any time I saw an old camera on the cluttered shelves of a thrift store, I’d drop a few bucks and pick it up to add to a growing collection on a shelf at the studio. A few years back, Larry turned the tables on me and mailed me a brand new Fujifilm Instax 200 and a few boxes of film. Without getting too far into it, I nerded out pretty darn hard on that sucker and blew through the film in a matter of weeks. He and I had a conversation last week about the history and longevity of film photography and what was lost — both in terms of product and process — when the industry went digital. The new digital cameras try to emulate what film was and what

A Fujifilm Instax 200 camera utilizes integral film much like many instant film cameras. (Photo by Christopher Dillmann • Sun Newspapers) it could do, but it’s just not the same. Is shooting film a bit of an anachronism? To some, maybe. To me? Well, I guess, but that’s just another thing I love about it. Yes, I know instant film is expensive. Frankly, since Polaroid decided to stop producing consumer grade instant film in 2008, it’s been tougher to justify the price of just 8 or 10 exposures in a pack. When it comes down to it, I guess hauling around a bulky camera that’s more expensive to use and has

limited scope when it comes to taking pictures for any purpose other than to put on my wall at home really boils down to a connection to the past and remembering where I came from. And, sometimes, you’ve just got to follow your passion.

western upscale lake community were treated to 3rd District Congressman Erik Paulsen’s town hall meeting early Tuesday night, Sept 6. For residents of the eastern part of the district it was challenging to get to the meeting in rush hour traffic at such a remote location as a high school in Minnetrista (population 6,000). Many residents of Bloomington, with a population of 83,000, would welcome a visit from the all-but-invisible repre-

sentative at one of our friendly venues, such as Creekside Community Center, where seniors have pressing concerns about Social Security and Medicare. Other residents may wonder what Paulsen is doing to advance the fortunes of unemployed workers. His predecessor at least made an effort to hold a meeting at the Edina Community Center.

A Bloomington man who allegedly struck his pregnant ex-girlfriend’s vehicle with his roommate’s car was arrested on suspicion of domestic assault. The 26-year-old man was arrested shortly after the reported Sept. 4 confrontation near the intersection of American Boulevard East and 34th Avenue South, according to Bloomington Police Commander Dave Olmstead. The man, who struck his ex-girlfriend’s vehicle multiple times at approximately 3:45 p.m., is reportedly the father of the 20-year-old Bloomington woman’s child. The woman’s husband was driving their vehicle when the suspect struck them, causing an estimated $2,000 damage to the vehicle, Olmstead said. Neither occupant of the vehicle was reportedly injured. The suspect was arrested at his residence a short time after the incident. His roommate’s damaged vehicle was found in the apartment complex parking lot, Olmstead noted.

A 36-year-old Minneapolis man was arrested on suspicion of fraudulently ordering merchandise for his employer and keeping it for his personal use. The man was arrested Sept. 7 after an investigation by Quality Bicycle Parts, 6400 W. 105th St., determined he had been ordering merchandise and billing it to departments that normally wouldn’t order such merchandise, Olmstead explained. After the unusual orders were discovered the company traced them to the employee’s computer. Upon being questioned by his employers, the man said he had placed the orders and taken the merchandise for his personal use, Olmstead added. The man is suspected of placing fraudulent orders totaling $2,697, he noted.

Domestic assault

FROM PREVIOUS PAGE car wash tickets he was unauthorized to sell. He was arrested Sept. 6 after it was found he was selling the tickets online via the Craigslist classified ad site. The man is accused of stealing $1,544 worth of car wash tickets, Olmstead said. An Eagan police detective saw the suspect’s online ad and was suspicious of the discounted merchandise. He determined the man was selling tickets to Paradise Car Wash, 10820 Bush Lake Road, leading to the investigation and the suspect’s arrest, Olmstead noted.

A 29-year-old Richfield man was arrested Sept. 1 after he allegedly assaulted his exgirlfriend in her Bloomington apartment. The 31-year-old woman was asleep when she awoke to find her ex-boyfriend in the bedroom of her apartment on the 8900 block of Old Cedar Avenue South, Olmstead said. The man, who did not have a key to the residence, reportedly punched and strangled her in her apartment. She was able to call 911, but the man was gone when police arrived. Following a police bulletin, the suspect was arrested by Richfield police, Olmstead explained. There was no sign of forced entry into her residence, he noted.

Winter coats a big deal for kids who don’t have them ing charities to participate, and they request the number of coats they expect to need. “Hopefully we can fill that demand,” Sprague said. This year Pilgrim aims to collect 10,000 coats. Sprague said the campaign came close to that number a few years ago, but donations have been a little lower in recent years. Demand is higher than ever. Mary Jo Copeland of Sharing and Caring Hands in Minneapolis said the poor have always been there, but she has noticed an increased need for services because of the bad economy the past few years. Copeland estimates her organization gave away approximately 1,500 coats last year. Gifford has also observed an increasing need. “With this current economy it’s just getting tougher all the time,” he said. Though some might see the need as daunting, Copeland sees it as an opportunity. “We all have a lot,” she said. “We must share what we have with others.” Those who wish to donate coats can

BY JONATHAN YOUNG • SUN NEWSPAPERS Minnesota residents often take coats for granted. But for families who can’t afford them, they are a big deal. That’s why Pilgrim Cleaners, Sun Newspapers, KARE 11, KFAN and Subway are sponsoring the 26th annual Coats for Kids campaign in the Twin Cities. The program allows community members to donate gently used and new coats. Pilgrim cleans the used coats and gives all the coats to charities that distribute them to people in need. Paul Gifford is a spokesperson for Minnetonka-based Hope for the City, one of the organizations that receives coats for distribution. “You can’t believe the joy that these people are showing because they received a coat,” he said. “They’re just happy to have a coat … to keep warm for the winter.” Judy Sprague with Pilgrim Cleaners has been in charge of organizing the drive for 11 years. “It’s unbelievable that there are people in Minnesota who don’t have coats,” Sprague said. Each year Sprague sends letters invit-

COMMUNITY NOTES Luck Dog Pet Lodge places lucky dog

to foster the dog. One year old, Jake was rescued from Leech Lake Reservation but was considered to have poor chances for adoption. Representatives from Minnesota Partnership for Animal Welfare and Pet Haven Inc. of Minnesota contacted Morehouse in a last ditch effort to save the dog. Morehouse immediately agreed to foster Jake. “We had just opened our doors when I got the call, so the timing was perfect.

Lucky Dog Pet Lodge is honored to announce their first homeless pet resident, Jake, has been adopted less than a month after the new business opened its doors in Bloomington. Jake was saved just hours prior to euthanasia when Tom Morehouse, owner of Lucky Dog Pet Lodge, agreed

As a new member of the business community, I felt it was important to be able to give back to all the great rescue organizations here in the Twin Cities,” Morehouse said. “Jake really is a lucky dog and we’ve been lucky to know him.” Morehouse added that the owner of a dog in his daycare facility adopted Jake after the two animals became frequent play buddies. Lucky Dog Pet Lodge is a full service dog boarding, daycare, and grooming facility located at 1067 American Blvd. E. in Bloomington.

The facility includes an 18,000 square foot outdoors play area, the largest for dogs in the Twin Cities. Morehouse opened Lucky Dog Pet Lodge in August. Lucky Dog Pet Lodge has taken in their second foster dog, Gage, a 10month old yellow lab mix, which had surgery on a broken rear leg. Gage is available for adoption through ActV Rescue and Rehabilitation; a rescue dedicated to taking in the most unwanted and neglected animals. Info:

New MyPlate campaign promotes health eating BY ROXI REJALI – CONTRIBUTING WRITER Icons are everywhere: recycling symbols, smiley faces, the Apple logo. Add another icon to the list: MyPlate. It’s a new symbol to remind Americans to make healthy eating choices. MyPlate shows a dinner setting of a cup and plate divided into sections representing the major food groups of fruits, vegetables, grains, protein and dairy products. The campaign was launched in June by First Lady Michelle Obama and pairs with her ongoing Let’s Move program to increase Americans’ physical activity. Both plans are designed to combat rising rates of overweight and obesity among adults and children. The U.S. Department of Agriculture

(USDA) developed MyPlate as an easy-tounderstand way to think about building a healthy plate at mealtimes. The colorful website has recipes, sample menus and inter-

active daily food plans that calculate food requirements based on age, gender, height, weight and activity levels. You’ll also find information sheets with useful tips on topics like ways to cut back on salt and sodium, reduce kids’ sugary snacks and creative ways to add fruits and vegetables to any diet. The new plate symbol replaces the familiar pyramid icon representing the food groups, introduced in 1992. USDA research says that Americans are confused by dietary guidelines that often seem to contradict each other. The new campaign is based on findings from the USDA’s 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans, which emphasized reducing calories and increasing physical activity to maintain a healthy weight. While the MyPlate image may be new,

the basic rules of good health don’t appear to have changed much. The following healthy-eating guidelines are borrowed from material: • Enjoy your food, but eat less. • Avoid oversized portions. • Make half your plate fruits and vegetables. • Make at least half your grains whole grains. • Switch to fat-free or low-fat (one-percent) milk. • Compare sodium in foods like soup, bread, and frozen meals and choose the foods with lower numbers. • Drink water instead of sugary drinks. For more information, go to or

Family mealtime helps kids thrive Sitting down to supper with your children on a regular basis is a simple strategy for building a strong family. Family mealtime helps children develop into productive students and adults, according to a senior clinical psychologist at American Family Children’s Hospital. “It’s well documented that children in families that eat dinner together develop social skills, strengthen family bonds, do better in school, and engage in less risky behaviors such as drug and alcohol abuse,” says Dr. Stephanie Farrell. “Scheduling regular family dinners is one tactic to assure we take the time to slow down from the hustle and bustle of our lives and be present with our children.” “Family mealtimes provide children

with stability and a safe environment in a world that is far too often fraught with confusion and pain.” But with kids trying to stay faithful to a schedule involving ballet lessons, soccer practice, and study time for tomorrow’s big test, how can regular family dinners be possible? “Start out realistically, even if it means just scheduling one shared meal,” says Farrell. “Keep it simple. The focus is on being together, not a gourmet meal.” Farrell encourages parents to have children help prepare the meal to give them a sense of responsibility, pride and accomplishment, while at the same time, enhancing their self-esteem. “Any help in the kitchen should be praised, so everyone’s efforts are

acknowledged and will likely be repeated in the future,” she says. “Additionally, when children are involved in the planning and preparation of healthy and nutritious food choices, they are more likely to eat the food, a bonus given the alarming rise in childhood obesity.” Farrell says when the meal is served, conversation among family members should be the focus and technology should be banned. “No television, no answering the phone, and no texting,” she says. “This will allow you to actively listen to your children and connect with them. Also, resist the temptation to jump up from the table when you are done eating to begin doing the dishes. No outside boundaries should serve as a distraction.”

Farrell adds that family mealtimes should be enjoyable, fun and relaxing and unpleasant topics or criticisms should be avoided. “It is imperative to take time to laugh,” she says. “Share a joke or an amusing story from the day. This might help children lower their guard that they may have had to keep up throughout the day.” Overall, Farrell says parents who plan family mealtimes are showing just how much their children mean to them. “I cannot think of a more vital message to give our children,” she says. “‘You are the most important part of my life, and I love you unconditionally. We are all busy, but I will always take time to be here for you.’” – Thursday, Sept. 15, 2011 – Bloomington Sun-Current

COMMUNITY NOTES Professional wrestling coming to Bloomington Prime Time Wrestling, a locally based professional wrestling league that features top talent from the Twin Cities and beyond, launches this month with an action-packed show at 7 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 30 at the Knights of Columbus, 1114 W. American Blvd., Bloomington. The standoff includes such wrestling celebrities as Apostle 13, who comes from a long line of Mexican “luchadores,” Mikey Wipeout, Dennis the Menace, The Chiropractor D.C., Udo, Magic Man, Lenny Lane, Rainmaker, John Johnson and Mitch Paradise. Richfield native Gregory “Magic Man” McDonald, co-founder of the group, set aside a successful 20-year acting career to get in the ring and test his abilities against other athletes, including some who are more than half his age. In starting the group, he has teamed up with the legendary Duluthborn wrestler Lenny Lane, a one-time Cruiserweight Champion with the

Traditional Gators Include:

World Championship Wrestling league. McDonald says that they’re on a mission to bring professional wrestling back to its roots as a community-based form of entertainment. He fondly remembers a time when families watched the shows together and localliving wrestlers were role models. “We want to make it easy and affordable for kids and families to have access to the world of professional wrestling,” said McDonald, adding that PTW’s talent pool is “every bit as good as the WWE, without the long speeches and flames.” However, he warns, “There will be some jerks and mean guys you love to hate.” After the show on Sept. 30, fans will get the chance to learn more about PTW’s monthly matches at the Knights of Columbus and mingle with entertainers and get their autographs. McDonald and Lenny Lane will also be a part of the “first card” that night. Whether they’re showing off their amazing athletic abilities or quick wit, “We have fun and put on a great show,” McDonald said. “Everything is a riot.” Info:

Looking to match homeless youth with host families Suburban Host Home Program aims to allow homeless youth to stay in their home communities BY MARC INGBER • SUN NEWSPAPERS One myth about homeless youth is there aren’t any in the suburbs, according to Teens Alone executive director Lydia Kihm. The problem might not be as visible, she said, in that many are sleeping on their friends’ couches and aren’t necessarily on the streets. But she estimates anywhere between 65 and 150 teens in the western suburbs are currently homeless or at risk of becoming homeless. According to a 2009 Wilder Research study, there were 46 percent more homeless, unaccompanied youth ages 16-21 in Minnesota than three years previously. On any night in the state, there is an estimated 2,500 homeless youth. Research shows that staying in their home community is critical in helping these youth complete school and move

into a stable young adulthood. But Kihm said there are limited housing programs for homeless youth in suburban Hennepin County. Teens Alone, a Hopkins-based organization that provides counseling, crisis referral and homelessness prevention services, and some of its partners are hoping to change that with the Suburban Host Home Program. The objective of the program are to provide safe housing to suburban homeless youth through volunteer host families. Teens Alone is coordinating the program with organizations such as Avenues for Homeless Youth, YMCA POINT Northwest and Oasis for Youth. Avenues for Homeless Youth, a Minneapolis nonprofit, has run a successful similar program since 1998 with its GLBT Host Home Program. It provides homeless gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender youth with safe homes and support. That’s why Teens Alone wanted it to help coordinate this program. “It made sense to build this suburban host program together,” Kihm said. The Suburban Host Home Program will recruit, screen, train and support adult volunteers in the suburbs to be

host homes and then match suburban homeless youth with those volunteer homes. Kihm said she already had a list of youth ready to be matched. The idea is to enable the youth to remain in the community where they are comfortable, have friends, attend school and work. “There’s no money – you’re doing this out of hospitality and the goodness of your heart,” Kihm said. “We know it’s a huge commitment, but we’re optimistic. (The families) will have somebody to try to help them.” Youth will stay with their host families for a maximum of one-and-a-half years, though the time period will more likely be six to nine months for most, she said. If a teen is not a good match with a family, the program will match him or her with another family. Some of the teens who participated in Avenues for Homeless Youth’s GLBT program have built relationships with their families that have lasted years, Kihm said. Suburban youth become homeless for several reasons. For some, its chemical abuse or mental health issues in the family. Due to the

economy, some families have run out of room in their houses and the older children want or have to find alternative living arrangements. Kihm assumes most of the families who volunteer to host youth will be “empty nester” couples, but the program is open to whoever wants to volunteer. The Suburban Host Home Program will hold four informational meetings in the metro in September to answer families’ questions. Kihm said there were no shelter beds in the western and southern suburbs for homeless youth. Building a shelter would cost millions of dollars, so the host family program is the best option. She hopes the program is up and running by later this year before winter comes. “This is the least expensive way we can house some kids,” she said. “All of us are coming together around homeless youth. We want to find safe places for young people.”

Is that goose poop? Nope, those are aeration “cores” on your lawn. Those cores are the result of a smart decision to aerate. Aeration is one of the most important natural and chemical free practices available to strengthen and beautify your lawn. Small cores are mechanically pulled from your lawn and left on top. This action helps control thatch, improves the soil structure, creates growth pockets for new roots, and opens the way for water, oxygen and fertilizer to reach the root zone of your lawn. Healthy lawns start with fall aeration!

The festival includes a classic car display, arts and craft fair and several performances and demonstrations during the afternoon. A BMX bicycle stunt show, robotics demonstration by Bloomington high school students and historical reenactments by the Bloomington Historical Society are among the afternoon’s entertainment. Competitive eating and hip swaying are also planned during the afternoon. There will be pie-eating contests every 30 minutes, and a 5 p.m. hula hoop contest in the teen area of the festival. For children there will be a tractor pedal pull at 3 p.m. City, military and civic groups will have displays and information at the festival as well. Although most activities are scheduled for the afternoon, a three-on-three basketball tournament begins at 8 a.m., and the thinkPINKkids 5K Walk from Bloomington Kennedy High School will move outdoors this year, ending at the

Heritage Days festival grounds on Saturday morning. Main stage entertainment will last until midnight. One thing the festival won’t include is a parade. The parade was the initial idea behind Heritage Days, according to Kendall. Although the parade has yet to come together, the plan is to include it next year now that festival organizers have a volunteer to coordinate it, according to Szafraniec.

Shuttle service Parking is limited in the vicinity of the festival. There are three park-andride locations to catch a shuttle bus during the day. Kennedy High School 9701 Nicollet Ave. S., will offer shuttle service beginning 11:30 a.m. Normandale Community College 9700 France Ave. S., and Northwestern Health Sciences, 2501 W. 84th St., will offer service beginning 12:15 p.m. Bus service to all three lots will continue throughout the day, with one bus serving the three lots after 8 p.m. Info:

Pink FROM PAGE 1 The Saturday morning walk has called Mall of America home during the past three years, but moved outdoors this year to coincide with the community spirit behind Heritage Days. Participants in the 5K walk will begin at Kennedy High School and finish at the Heritage Days main stage off Lyndale Avenue. The move will benefit the walk in several ways, and by tying it to Heritage Days it will help the walk become more of a community event and less of a student event, according to organizer Max Woodrich, a Jefferson High School senior. “That’s a good thing for us ‌ to have people know about it outside the school community,â€? he said. Woodrich has been the catalyst for walk and other fundraising events in the school, according to his mother, Nancy. It

Local prep football teams look forward, not back S


Aaron Karow The Bloomington golfer recorded a hole in one last week on the 128-yard fourth hole at Dwan, using a pitching wedge.

BY GREG KLEVEN • SUN NEWSPAPERS Both Bloomington high school football squads are looking forward and not back after losses last week. Jefferson (1-1) was defeated 43-7 by Prior Lake (1-1) Sept. 9 at Bloomington Stadium in Week 2 of the football season. The Jaguars edged Burnsville 20-18 in their season opener Sept. 1. Kennedy (0-2) encountered the state’s No. 1-ranked team, Eden Prairie, last Friday on the road and came away with a 35-0 loss. Kennedy was beaten 28-6 by Rosemount in its season opener. Kennedy hopes to break into the win column against Burnsville (0-2) at 7 p.m. Friday, Sept. 16, at Bloomington Stadium. The Blaze lost 38-7 to Rosemount last week. Kennedy wasn’t able to generate much offense against Eden Prairie’s stingy defense. EP has given up only seven points in two games. Senior running back Lexis Jones led Kennedy rushers with 69 yards on 20 carries. Sophomore quarterback Travon Hearns completed six of 11 passes for 56 yards. Junior running back Arich Juberian finished with four catches for 33 yards. Eden Prairie built a 28-0 halftime lead and added one touchdown in the third quarter. Jefferson battled Prior Lake on even terms for most of the first half last week and trailed 22-7 heading into the third quarter. However, the Lakers broke the game open with one score in the third quarter and two touchdown runs of 26 and 31 yards in the final quarter. “Prior Lake outplayed us physically and had a good nose guard in Karmichael Dunbar,” said Jefferson head coach Jon Leverenz. “And we had too many mental errors.” Jefferson senior running back Andre Rowell came through with the Jaguars’ lone touchdown on a 5-yard run in the first quarter. Charley Fitch kicked the extra point. Rowell finished with 81 yards on 19 car-

Ryan Gilmer Gilmer caught a 60-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Tony Robinson during Jefferson’s 20-18 South Suburban Conference football victory over Burnsville Sept. 1.

Lexis Jones The Kennedy senior running back contributed 67 yards rushing and one touchdown during his team’s 28-6 loss to Rosemount Sept. 1 at Bloomington Stadium.

The Jaguars will travel to Minnetonka for a 7 p.m. non-conference game Friday, Sept. 16. (Photo courtesy of ries. Trey Blanchard had 39 yards on seven rushes. “Offensively, it has been a learning experience for our players trying to execute the option attack,” said Leverenz. “We did put together an impressive eightminute, 84-yard scoring drive in the first quarter. “Our offensive line, especially tackles Andy Seaberg and Wyatt Ward, blocked

well. And I thought Blanchard had a good game at cornerback and running back.” Jefferson will travel to Minnetonka for a 7 p.m. game Friday, Sept. 16, against the unbeaten Skippers (2-0). Minnetonka defeated Robbinsdale Armstrong 24-0 last week. “Minnetonka has size and speed,” said Leverenz. “And Minnetonka has an excellent running back and wide receiver.”

State returnee Ketterson anchors Jefferson boys CC squad Jaguar girls team is led by co-captains Weatherhead, Martens BY GREG KLEVEN • SUN NEWSPAPERS Jefferson’s boys and girls cross country programs are making progress, according to head coach Jeremy Kersten. “Our boys varsity team has about seven or nine runners who should help out,” said Kersten. “And we have excellent leadership.” Jefferson’s tri-captains are seniors Jan Ketterson and Ted McGee along with junior Jacob Weber. Ketterson earned all-conference honors and qualified for state as a junior last season. One valuable addition to Jefferson’s boys team is sophomore Matt Rosen. “This is Matt’s first year out for cross country after playing football

last year,” said Kersten. “But he also competed in track and qualified for state in the 800-meter run last spring. “He shows a lot of potential as a distance runner in cross country.” Jefferson’s other leading varsity candidates are senior Justin Hendricks, eighth-grader Zak Ketterson and junior Jack Kokkinen. Jefferson’s girls country team also shows promise. “The team is growing,” said Kersten. “We have five more girls out for this year’s team than last year. We might not have that one individual standout but are trying to build depth.” Jefferson’s girls cross country senior co-captains are Joni Weatherhead and Dancia Martens. Other varsity runners are senior Anne Gathje, sophomore Alexa Groenke, sophomore Bailey Plamen, junior Maria Molina Espinosa and ninth-grader Kelly Mitzel.

“We moved the ball well against Apple Valley but did not convert those chances,” said Jefferson coach Sarah Connelly. Dahlen and Hannah Haaland shared goalkeeping duties.

Swim highlights Jefferson lost 97-81 to Lakeville North in a South Suburban Conference girls swimming dual meet Sept. 1. The Jaguars’ winning 200-yard freestyle relay team consisted of Jill Crandall, Grace Mandich, Caroline Harris and Noelle Robb. Sam Aamot was first in the 100 backstroke with a time of 1 minute, 9.44 seconds. Crandall won the 100 breaststroke (1:15.29). Members of Jefferson’s first-place 400 freestyle relay were Aamot, Maria Vaudreuil, Mandich and Holly Griffith. Eastview defeated Jefferson 100-78 Sept. 6. Aamot was victorious in the 100 butterfly. Harris won the 100 backstroke and Vaudreuil took first in the 100 breaststroke. Jefferson’s first-place 400 freestyle relay consisted of Aamot, Mandich, Griffith and Crandall.

CALL 952-392-6800 TO REQUEST AN ORDER FORM, OR DOWNLOAD ORDER FORM FROM WWW.MNSUN.COM in grades 3-8. These clinics are Saturday mornings on Sept. 17, Oct. 1 and Oct. 8 at Jefferson High School. Registration forms and more information can be obtained online at
