Sorum will not return to Bloomington Board of Education ‘I’ve done my time, I’ve done my service’ BY MIKE HANKS • SUN NEWSPAPERS Had Jim Sorum moved into a different Bloomington neighborhood, perhaps nobody would know his name. The 21-year Bloomington Board of Education member is calling it Weekly quits at the end of the year, opting Super Savings! not to seek re-election to the seat he was first elected to in the fall of 1990. “I’ve done my time, I’ve done my service,” he said last week. Sorum’s road to the board table began afterSuper his Savings! family moved to Weekly Bloomington and learned that his neighborhood elementary school was at capacity, necessitating a bus ride to a neighboring school with a desk to spare. Sorum questioned the district about it, and wound up being recruited to a W e e k committee l y S u p e r that S a v iwas ngs! boundary being formed, he recalled last week.

A moment of silence Approximately 180 diners at the Aug. 11 Creekside Community Center luncheon observed several moments of silence for an old-fashioned silent film fest, complete with popcorn, which volunteer JoAnn Mattson of Bloomington helped serve. (Submitted Photos)

The field was narrowed in the Bloomington City Council mayoral and at-large representative elections following a small turnout for last week’s primary election. Mayor Gene Winstead, seeking a fourth term, garnered nearly 70 percent of the votes cast in a three-way mayoral race, advancing to November’s general election against Hans Anderson, who received 26.8 percent of the vote. Fred “Red” Alan finished third with 4 percent of the vote and will not advance to the November ballot. The at-large race also narrowed the field from three to two as current Councilmember Tim Busse and Mike Lehmann advanced. Busse, who was appointed to the council as its District 3 representative earlier this year, received 53.4 percent of the vote. Lehmann fin-

ished second with 32.7 percent. Challenger Scott Lechtenberg finished third with 13.9 percent of the vote. Less than 10 percent of the 50,971 registered voters as of Tuesday turned out for the primary election. The 4,029 ballots cast represents 7.9 percent of registered voters. Also appearing on the November ballot are two candidates for the District 3 seat, Jack Baloga and Russ Burnison. Councilmember Vern Wilcox is unopposed in his bid for re-election to the District 4 seat. The general election is Nov. 8. Candidates for three Bloomington Board of Education seats will also appear on the ballot. The filing period for the school board election ended Aug. 16, after this edition of the Sun-Current went to press. A list of school board candidates is available online at xr.com/filing.

Wildlife feeding is permitted in Bloomington, with conditions BY MIKE HANKS • SUN NEWSPAPERS When Bloomington revised its ordinances in 2009 pertaining to feeding of wildlife throughout the city, there was little fanfare. The city’s restrictions have recently drawn nationwide attention, however, as a result of a pending case involving a resident who is fighting his most recent citation for feeding wildlife in violation of city ordinance. The city does permit feeding of certain types of wildlife, with conditions, according to City Attorney Sandra Johnson. The ordinance is intended to prevent concentrations of waterfowl and wildlife at artificial feeding stations in Bloomington neighborhoods, Johnson explained. The Bloomington City Council rejected the first draft presented by the city’s Environmental Health Division in 2009 as being overly broad, Johnson said. The initial proposal limited feeding to songbirds and other non-waterfowl species, and required feeders to be at least five feet above the ground, according to Johnson. The owner of a Bloomington business catering to bird feeding proposed changes that would allow residents to feed birds on the ground as well, as cer-

tain species would only feed off the ground, Johnson recalled. Feeding stations attracting objectionable wild animals were using stale bakery products, residential leftover food and pure cracked corn, Johnson noted. The revised proposal, approved by the council, allows feeding of wildlife in a container five feet off the ground or higher. That provision has no restrictions upon the type of feed permitted since five feet is too high to attract most animals that typically feed on bakery products or corn, such as deer and geese, Johnson explained. A resident who wants to feed corn to squirrels may do so if the corn is in a feeder five feet off the ground. Squirrels and chipmunks were excluded from the definition of wildlife since it was accepted that, despite most reasonable efforts, bird feeding would attract them, Johnson noted. Feeding using a birdseed mixture may be done from a bowl on the ground as well as a bird feeder in a tree, so long as it doesn’t attract a noticeable number of wild animals in addition to birds. Although seed mixes may attract unwanted rodents to a yard, that was a compromise the council was willing to

A 20-year-old Minneapolis man was arrested after he crashed a rental car while fleeing Bloomington police. The suspect, arrested Aug. 4, had passed a Bloomington Police Department detective driving an unmarked car, according to Bloomington Police Commander Mark Stehlik. The suspect passed the detective on the shoulder of northbound Interstate 35W, north of 106th Street, and was traveling approximately 100 mph. He nearly clipped the front end of the unmarked vehicle as he pulled into the traffic lane, Stehlik said. After passing the detective the suspect cut across three lanes of traffic to the inside of the freeway. The detective activated the unmarked car’s lights and followed the suspect as he exited at 94th Street. The suspect turned right on 94th Street and stopped the vehicle. As the detective approached the vehicle the man pulled away, making a U-turn and returning to northbound 35W, Stehlik explained. The officer lost sight of the vehicle as it exited at 82nd Street. At the top of the exit ramp the officer saw that the silver Chevrolet Impala had crashed into a construction barricade on the north side of the street. Witnesses reported that the suspect exited the vehicle, fleeing north, according to Stehlik. Police set up a perimeter around the crash site and found the man inside a business complex north of the crash site, Stehlik noted. The suspect was charged in Hennepin

Bloomington pawnshop. The GPS receiver was reported stolen Aug. 3 from a vehicle parked on the 6100 block of West 97th Street, Stehlik said. The vehicle had been left unlocked while parked in the attached garage, which had been open prior to the disappearance of the receiver, Stehlik noted. The receiver turned up at Max It Pawn, 9432 Lyndale Ave. S., which identified the suspect as the person who had pawned it, leading to his arrest Aug. 10.

Nothing appeared to be missing as a result of a burglary on the 8700 block of Wentworth Avenue South. The homeowner had left at 3:30 p.m. Aug. 8 and returned about eight hours later to find that a door to the house had been forced open and shelves and drawers of the house had been searched. Contents of the shelves and drawers had been emptied onto the floor, but there was no indication that anything was missing, Stehlik said.

Wildlife FROM PAGE 3 accept in allowing residents to feed songbirds, Johnson explained. Mineral salt was added to the prohibited feed list since it attracts deer, she added. Living food sources, such as apple trees and berry bushes, that may attract wildlife do not fall within the restrictions for wildlife feeding, Johnson noted. The restrictions were added to protect the health of wildlife and residents by preventing deer from venturing out of their natural habitat and cross streets to feed and by reducing congregations of ducks and geese in neighborhoods, as congregations had caused problems as a result of bird excrement, Johnson explained.

The revisions were essentially addressing “goose poop and deer,” Johnson said. The city does not patrol neighborhoods in search of wildlife feeding, Johnson explained. The city’s investigations are a result of residential complaints. Upon verification that a resident is feeding wildlife in violation of city ordinance, an environmental health or animal control representative explains the rules to the resident in an effort to end the practice. “Almost always people say ‘Sure,’ and they comply,” Johnson said. She estimates the city issues less than 10 citations per year for illegal feeding wildlife. The city provided educational information upon revising feeding regulations. The information is available online at xr.com/feeding1 and xr.com/feeding2.

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

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Walter opts out of board of education To the editor: Almost four years ago I made the decision that my service on the Bloomington Board of Education would be limited to two terms. Therefore I will not be filing for re-election. I have always held the belief that an elected official’s time in office should be limited. I wish to thank the residents of this wonderful community for their passion and support of our school district. It made my job as a school board member much easier. One of the candidates in this fall’s election is Judy Gruggen. She has served on various school district committees and held leadership positions with PTSA. I am endorsing her and hope that you will vote for her this November. Chuck Walter Bloomington

DANIEL CALLAHAN Bloomington 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.

Do you have what it takes? This is the time of the year when many of the communities we serve begin looking for volunteers for boards and commissions. Generally, the candidates are screened and vetted between now and the end of the year, and then appointments are made. I am amazed that in today’s world of insane schedules and everyone running short of time that folks still volunteer. On top of that, commissioners take a lot of heat on many occasions, a headache most people would rather avoid. But there remains that stalwart group who see public service as their duty to their community. May their tribe increase. Among the most frustrating aspects of serving on a commission or similar panel is the relationship with the appointing entity – usually the city council. I’ve been covering government for 30-plus years and became aware of this yin and yang experience from the outset. City councils generally appoint commissioners. The

PAUL WAHL Sun Newspapers Senior Managing Editor

idea is that topics that need a broad hearing start at the commission level. Inevitably, the commissions forward a recommendation to the council and that’s often where the problems start. While everyone recognizes it is just that – a recommendation – commissioners work long hard hours to come to their conclusions and rightly resent when their work is dismissed out of hand. They take ownership of the issue. I have seen entire commissions resign en masse over what it perceived as a slight by a council that had obviously made up its mind long before hearings were held. Now I’ve never served on one of these commissions because as a journalist it would be inappropriate. I’ve sat there through their deliber-

ations, often the only member of the public. My sympathies generally run in favor of the commissioners in these tet a tet situations. We’ve had several instances around our coverage area over the past few years where clearly there was little or no communication between the council and the commission in question. I covered one instance in which the council didn’t even read the recommendation of its planning commission prior to voting on a particularly sticky topic. On another occasion a parks and recreation commission was completely screened out of the hearing process on a pet project being pushed by several council members. They short-circuited the commission process because they knew the idea was not going to fly in a broader public hearing setting. Against that backdrop we ask people to step up and volunteer to commit hundreds of hours of their lives to making COLUMN: TO NEXT PAGE

The Cremation Society of Minnesota is Minnesota’s largest provider of cremation services. Society members come from all social, religious, and economic backgrounds, finding unity in their mutual attraction of the simplicity of the cremation rite. They choose to dispense with costly and unnecessary pomp associated with conventional funerals, and commit themselves and their families to this dignified disposition at the time of death.

Q. How does the Cremation Society of Minnesota Work? A. The Cremation Society is notified immediately at the time of death. Then the member’s body is transported to the Society’s crematory where it is held until proper medical authorization is secured. The cremation permit is then completed, and the body is cremated.

Q. What happens to the ashes after cremation? A. Your cremated remains (ashes) will be handled according to your written instructions. They may be picked up by your survivors, or will be delivered or mailed for a fee.

Q. At the time of death, what is the cost for the cremation service? A. The cost of the basic cremation service which includes removal of the body from the place of death, cremation, filing of the necessary papers and cardboard container suitable for burial is presently $1395.00 for members. This is payable at the time services are rendered. The charge to non-members, whom we also service, is more.

At the time of death, our counselors are available to assist your survivors in arranging for memorial services, obtaining certified copies of the death certificate, cemetery services, grave makers and monuments, obituaries for the newspaper and paperwork for Social Security and Veterans’ benefits.

Edina veteran gets long-awaited visit WWII pilot reunited with gunner after 66 years BY KATIE MINTZ • SUN NEWSPAPERS A truck pulled into the driveway of Lloyd Flynn’s Edina home Thursday afternoon, Aug. 11. “Oh man. Man, oh man, oh man,” Flynn said, greeting its passenger in an embrace. “You son of a gun, how are ya?” The last time 2nd Lt. Flynn, a pilot, was that close to his gunner, Cpl. Dan Williams of Aberdeen, Wash., was 66 years ago. The Marines flew together feet apart in a single-engine airplane over the South Pacific for nearly a year during World War II. The meeting arranged by his son Bruce Williams of Golden, Colo., was years in the making. The veterans reconnected by mail about eight years ago and write regularly. Meant to be a surprise for his dad, his cover was blown when they continued east after visiting friends in Wyoming. “He said ‘I may be 88 but I’m not stupid,’”

Bruce Williams said. When Flynn and Dan Williams met, they were both 21. Flynn, who grew up in south Minneapolis, said he always wanted to be a pilot. He enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps in 1942. Dan Williams also hoped to be a pilot and signed up for an aviation program for enlisted soldiers after entering active duty the same year. The program was discontinued and he entered bombardier and gunnery school instead. In the fall of 1943, they were stationed together as part of Marine Scout Bombing Squadron 151. “I was certainly glad that Dan was my gunner,” Flynn said. “If we ever got in a tight spot, and we never did, I would be glad he was with me.” Sitting on Flynn’s back porch in the Morningside neighborhood, they reminisced over perhaps their most important assignment. In June 1944 they were told to prepare for a highly secret mission. They flew from their base to another Pacific island for a meeting with “an awful lot of gold braid,” Dan Williams said. A U.S. Navy captain handed them a VISIT: TO NEXT PAGE

Visit FROM PREVIOUS PAGE three-foot aluminum tube and told them it was to be dropped to a destroyer escort ship. “It had ribbons on it. It was decorated up like a Christmas tree,” Williams said. They had strict orders that if they could not make the proper contact, the tube was to go to bottom of the lagoon – and that they should go with it if necessary. The tube held the invasion instructions for the Mariana Islands of Guam, Tinian and Saipan, Williams said. Chanhassen resident Bob Flynn, one of five kids, said he never heard his father speak much about the war growing up. He learned a lot reading Dan Williams’ memoir, which is dedicated to his father, calling him “one of the good ones.” “There are a couple hair-raising adventures they went on,” he said. On one of a handful of combat missions, the 1,000 pounds of explosives strapped to their plane did not drop during an air strike. They had to climb back up to do the dive again without the rest of their squadron. “The second time we were all by ourselves,” Williams said. “You know you’re

not going to get any help.” But no matter what the situation, he said he always knew Lloyd Flynn would pull them out. “I felt immediately he was completely competent, No. 1. No. 2, I never saw any indication he came unglued over any minor two-bit deals,” Dan Williams said. His rotation concluded in November 1944 and he was sent back to the United States. He worked as a timber cruiser and land surveyor for many years in Washington state. His two sons Bruce and Dave were U.S. Marine Corps pilots. “My love of flying came from his experience in World War II. There was no doubt in my mind I was going to be a Marine aviator,” said Bruce Williams, whose son will also enter Marine pilot school next year. Lloyd Flynn had five kids and worked 45 years in cemetery and funeral services before retiring. His grandson Aaron Flynn, also a Marine, did tours in Iraq and Afghanistan. Dan and Bruce Williams planned to stay with Lloyd Flynn for five days before heading back west. The Edina resident aid he had been looking forward to their visit. “I was so thrilled, so excited. When Bruce called I said it was going to be emotional and it was,” Flynn said. “It’s hard to believe they’re here.”

Survivor FROM PAGE 13 and has been cancer-free ever since. A friend convinced her to do her first walk in 2008. She was a six-year survivor at the time. On the route she met a six-month survivor. The other woman had just finished chemotherapy and couldn’t make the entire trip. Kriha met her at the end and together they entered the closing ceremony. Kriha said she realized then how lucky she was to be alive. “It was the first time I acknowledged myself as a survivor,” she said. This year she will walk with her stepdaughter Brianna Dehncke, 22, who grew up in New Hope and now lives and goes to school in Duluth. Dehncke recently lost her mother and a close family friend to lung cancer. She said the support provided to survivors, their families and friends at cheering stations dotting the route and by fellow walkers is amazing. Her favorite part is meeting other survivors and sharing hope. “The cheering stations make it a community event instead of a personal journey,” she said. “You have this whole group of people showing you the love you need to keep going.” For a list of cheering stations and additional information, visit The3Day.org.

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.

Sorum FROM PAGE 1 From there Sorum found himself serving on various committees and organizations within the district. As he became more involved in the inner workings of the district a run for school board became the next logical step. He took that step, and lost twice in consecutive years, beginning in 1986. It was his third campaign in 1990 that elevated him to the board. He joined the board in January 1991 and will complete 21 years of service when his term expires at the end of the year. His tenure ends with an odd number of years due to the district’s change to offyear elections, in line with the city, he

noted. His decision not to seek re-election was finalized during the filing period for this November’s election, which closed earlier this week. Sorum, 66, contemplated another four years, but as he nears retirement in his professional life – as a cost accountant for a small Plymouth-based business – he decided it was time to shed his district responsibilities first, he explained. Two decades of district leadership provided Sorum with many opportunities to help shape the district’s future. Among the highlights of his tenure was chairing the board in 2000 when the district successfully campaigned for a $107 million bond referendum that allowed the district to expand, renovate and reorganize its buildings, he recalled. In 2006, the board made an atypical

decision, according to Sorum. “We broke the mold, we did not hire a typical superintendent,” he said. The board chose Les Fujitake, the district’s executive director of finance, to take over the district’s administrative leadership, opting for a superintendent that would emphasize financial planning in leading the district. It’s a decision that has served the district well in recent years, sparing the district from tough economic decisions that other districts have faced, Sorum explained. And the reason Sorum took his first step toward a seat on the board provided one of the highlights of his tenure, reorganizing the elementary school boundaries last year, he said. His career in accounting makes him conservative by nature, but Sorum

23

thinks he balanced the concerns of parents and taxpayers when making decisions for the good of the district. “I’ve always tried to be moderate and work the issues,” he said. The faces change inside the boardroom every couple of years. Few have been around longer than Sorum. But one person who has sat alongside him for more than two decades is 30-year Boardmember Arlene Bush. Bush considers Sorum a good friend who, as a board member, is open-minded and fair-minded when making decisions, not holding grudges or applying personal biases in his decision-making, she said. Although she is the exception to the rule, Bush realizes that “people go on to other things. “I’m sorry to see him leave.”

Haddox hosts state finals Bloomington’s Haddox Field is the site of the final rounds of the state Class A amateur baseball tournament this weekend. There will be a 7 p.m. game Friday, Aug. 19, at Haddox Field in Valley View Park. Competition continues at noon and 3 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 20, in the double-elimination tourney. The tournament winds down with a 1 p.m. game Sunday, Aug. 21. If necessary, a final game to decide the tournament champion would take place at 4 p.m. Defending state champion Minnetonka came into the tournament as the favorite led by shortstop Joe Shallenberger and center fielder Chris Urbain. Two other Riverview League teams were entered in the tourney. The Bloomington Bandits will rely on two key pitchers, Josh Gist and Cliff Christopherson, along with hot-hitting Sam Baltes (.371, 26 RBI) and Kyle Bassamore (.355, 26 RBI). St. Louis Park will try to duplicate its state title feat of 2008. Pitcher Gabe Eikum was the tournament’s most valuable player that year and is still the ace of the Park staff. Matt Paulsen provided many key hits for Park in the Riverview League playoffs.

Bloomington 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.

Bandits fall in state Class A baseball tourney BY GREG KLEVEN • SUN NEWSPAPERS Not even home-field advantage could end the state tournament jinx for the Bloomington Bandits town team. For the third consecutive season, the Bandits went 0-2 in the state Class A amateur baseball tournament last weekend at Haddox Field in Bloomington. The Bandits concluded their season with losses to the St. Paul Shamrocks and St. Louis Park in the double-elimination state tourney. Bloomington finished with a 29-7 overall record. “We haven’t had much luck in state competition,” said Bandits coach George Walker. “We had good pitching, but we didn’t give our pitchers much hitting support.” St. Paul Shamrocks defeated the Bandits 6-0 Aug. 11 at Haddox Field. Sam Baltes contributed a triple in the losing cause. Josh Gist was the losing pitcher and had relief help from Kyle Bassamore. “The Shamrocks did everything right,”

said Walker. “They ran the bases, caught and hit the ball and their pitcher kept our hitters off-balance.” Bloomington’s season ended with a 5-1 loss to St. Louis Park Aug. 14. “Cliff Christopherson pitched a great game but got no offensive support,” said Walker. “We didn’t come up with key hits.” Dusty Walker drove in Bloomington’s lone run on a groundout. Jake Huwe had a triple for the Bandits. Bloomington Bandits players and coaches do have one remaining duty. Bloomington will host the final rounds of the state Class A tourney this weekend at Haddox Field. There will be a 7 p.m. game Friday, Aug. 19. Tournament action resumes at noon and 3 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 20, and concludes at 1 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 21. If another game were needed, the title would be decided at 4 p.m. Sunday. “We have had good crowds at our tournament games,” said Walker. “And we have received great help from all of our volunteers.”

Bloomington native Jeff Monson has many fond memories of his baseball careers at Jefferson High School and the University of Minnesota. Monson was an all-conference performer for the Jaguars before starring for the Gophers from 1988 through 1991, earning All-Big Ten Conference honors as a senior. The first baseman was named Most Valuable Player of the 1989 Pillsbury Classic. But many of Monson’s greatest baseball thrills came as a member of Bloomington Bulldogs and Edina Buckshot town teams. Monson was honored for his amateur baseball contributions this summer. Monson, now living in Savage, was inducted into the Class A Amateur Baseball Hall of Fame July 9 during a ceremony at Dunning Field in St. Paul. Monson started playing amateur baseball for the Bulldogs in 1986 at age 18. He also played for the Bloomington Blue American Legion squad that season. “Playing for Bulldogs coach Jim Wanshura was a tremendous help to me in accomplishing all the things I have achieved in baseball,” said Monson. “I would like to thank all my teammates over the years. “Baseball is a team sport and none of my achievements could have been attained without great teammates surrounding me.” Monson also had thanks for others leading to his hall of fame honor. “Thanks to my wife, mom, dad, brother and sister for their support,” said Monson. “And thanks to all the great coaches who helped me along the way including my dad Richard, Dick Mingo, Dennis Daggert, Jim Wanshura, Paul Blanchard, Rob Fornasiere and John Anderson.” Monson’s town ball career started with the Bulldogs in 1986. He played two more seasons for the “Dogs”

Former Bloomington Bulldogs town team player Jeff Monson was inducted into the Minnesota Class A Amateur Baseball Hall of Fame this summer. (Submitted photo) before competing for the Gophers. Monson played a key role as the Bloomington Bulldogs won the state Class A title in 1987. He was named the tournament’s most valuable player. Monson played and managed the Edina Buckshot from 1992 to 1995 before going back to the Bloomington Bulldogs from 1996 to 2003 as a player and manager. The Bulldogs qualified for state twice during that span. The Bulldogs have since disbanded and been replaced by the Bloomington Bandits, a team that qualified for this year’s state tourney at Haddox Field.

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!
