When skies turn dark and stormy, Mark Bloedow is on weather alert. As a severe storm spotter for the National Weather Service, Bloedow watches the skies for tornadoes, strong winds and hail and transmits his reports using a handheld, two-way radio. “You can’t change the weather, you can’t stop it,” he said. “Why not try and learn something from it?” Bloedow is prepared for any stormspotting emergency. A pager attached to his belt alerts him to weather warnings and a weather alert radio is switched on at night at his Burnsville home. When severe weather develops, he carries a “go bag,” a small backpack stocked with weather-spotting essentials. That includes two-way radios, spare batteries, a flashlight, bottled water and a pocket weather tracker that measures temperature, humidity, dew point and wind speed with a tiny built-in propeller. “If I need to go, I know where everything is, in one spot,” said Bloedow, 51, a self-described weather geek.

Bloomington schools names literacy grant manager The Bloomington school district’s elementary curriculum coordinator has been selected to serve as the project manager for the McKnight Foundation grant awarded to Bloomington Public Schools as one of three metro school districts to create and share new models to improve early literacy. Lisa Grundstrom, who joined the school district in 1989 as an elementary school teacher, has spent the last 11 years as elementary curriculum coordi-

nator. Her work has included Reading First and Early Reading First curriculum projects. She is also serving on the Minnesota Department of Education’s Striving Readers Comprehensive Literacy State Advisory Council. She holds elementary education and educational specialist degrees from Minnesota State University, Mankato. Bloomington, Brooklyn Center and Minneapolis public schools will each receive $150,000 to develop comprehen-

sive strategies to improve literacy at specific school sites, with a singular focus on the developmental span from prekindergarten through third grade. Following one initial planning year, McKnight will review each school district for a possible implementation grant to put the plans into motion. Bloomington’s participating schools are Washburn and Valley View elementary schools. McKnight cited Bloomington as a front-runner of

Minnesota school districts using technology to encourage teachers and families to monitor student data and to develop connections to an alliance of community resources that are committed to academic success. The Minnesota-based McKnight Foundation seeks to improve the quality of life for present and future generations through grants, coalition building, and encouragement of strategic policy reform.

Bloomington church opens prayer room for all BY MIKE HANKS • SUN NEWSPAPERS Many people find their way to a house of prayer in times of need. Some, however, have nowhere they call home. A Bloomington church is aiming to change that. St. Michael’s Lutheran Church recently completed the construction of a prayer room. It’s a small area that seats 20 and pales in comparison to the church’s 1,100-seat sanctuary, and that’s exactly what the church set out to design. The prayer room is a nondenominational place dedicated to prayer, intended to provide “a quiet place that people could go and not feel exposed when they feel the need to pray,” according to Roger Wheeler, the chief operations officer of the parish. The room was created as a way to reach out to the community. “We wanted to begin sharing the gifts the Lord has given us to the surrounding neighborhood,” Wheeler said. The prayer room was determined to be the means to their outreach, but figuring out how to make it work within the confines of the parish raised several questions. Making the

prayer room available without opening up access to the entire church was one of the goals of the project, he explained. It was determined that an area adjacent to the main entrance of the church would provide the necessary space for the prayer room, as it could be made available while restricting access to the remainder of the building. Wheeler’s son-in-law designed the plans for the space, and church volunteers completed much of the labor over a period of months. Progress was erratic, as volunteers worked on the project as their schedule permitted. Some volunteers who began the project were unemployed at the time, but found work in their trade as the prayer room progressed, Wheeler noted. Part of the project included placing stained-glass windows from the original church sanctuary along the front wall of the prayer room, looking out into the church parking lot. It was only through the relocation of the windows that church members learned that it wasn’t stained glass, but actually painted glass, according to Wheeler. PRAYER ROOM: TO NEXT PAGE

The new prayer room at St. Michael’s Lutheran Church of Bloomington features painted glass windows that were once part of the original sanctuary of the church. The original altar of the church has also been placed in the prayer room, which provides a small, non-denominational setting separate from the rest of the building.

BRIEFS

“You’d never know until you have to move them,” he said. The glass panels depict the archangel Michael, for whom the church is named. The prayer room also has a custom designed sliding door and the original altar from the first church sanctuary, Wheeler noted. Inside the prayer room are complimentary bibles and information about prayer, as well as information about community resources available to help people find solutions to challenges in their life. Information cards may be filled out and left for parish staff, but people using the prayer room and not obligated to meet with parish staff or sign in. A staff member is available during prayer room hours, however. The prayer room initially opened with a schedule that mirrors the parish hours, as accommodations have yet to be made to provide security for the prayer room after hours, Wheeler explained.

Volunteers from across the Twin Cities are needed for the fifth annual Minnehaha Creek Clean-up Sunday, July 10.

After breakfast, volunteers can take buses to locations along the creek in Minneapolis, Edina, St. Louis Park and Hopkins to collect trash. Buses will run in a circular route to stops along the creek and back to event headquarters. At noon, volunteers will return to Lake Hiawatha where the garbage will be weighed.

Cause for celebration for county library system Exhibit honors 125 years of service to region BY LOIS LANGER THOMPSON • GUEST COLUMNIST This summer, “For Use: 125 Years of Library Service in Hennepin County” is cause for celebration. This fascinating, interactive exhibit on a historic public service milestone will be part of a program 7 p.m.

Thursday, June 30, in Pohlad Hall at Hennepin County Library – Minneapolis Central, 300 Nicollet Mall in Minneapolis. Considering the economic, political, and technological upheaval of the past century, especially the past few decades, it has been no small feat to have continuity of library service in Hennepin County since 1886. The fact that it has flourished while staying true to its mission to serve the public and support education and literacy

has been no small feat either. The exhibit features a detailed timeline that puts the library’s development and accomplishments in perspective. It takes you from groundbreaking for the Main Library of the Minneapolis Public Library at 10th and Hennepin in 1886 through library service to “rural” Hennepin County by book wagon, Model-T Ford truck and REO Speedwagon. It continues through the opening of each of the 41 libraries, the

formation of the Library Foundation of Hennepin County and the Library’s transformation in the age of technology. You’ll see the library’s catalog evolve from cards in file drawers to catalog records in book format, on microfilm and microfiche to today’s interactive online computer catalog. There are enough historic “firsts” in the exhibit to fill a librarian’s Fugitive Fact File. Did you know that Minneapolis Public Library opened the first library children’s room in the United States in 1893? Did you know that reference questions answered by Minneapolis staff reached an all-time high of three million in 1992? Before computers became integral to library service, which library was known as the “electric library?” Public computers with browser (Netscape) access were first installed at 11 suburban libraries in what year? When was Wireless Internet access installed? When were eBooks added to the collection? When did Hennepin County Library become the first library system in Minnesota to launch a mobile app? An estimated 5.8 million people walked through the libraries’ doors in what year? Several libraries now check out more than one million items each year. Which library was the first to reach that landmark, and in what year? The answers to these questions and more can be found at the exhibit, which provides an opportunity to gain a better understanding of and appreciation for your public library. Exhibit goers can also write comments on cards that will be filed in an old card catalog. LIBRARY’S 125TH: TO NEXT PAGE

Library’s 125th FROM PREVIOUS PAGE Try out a microfiche reader to see facts about each library. Also there will be a technology table where you can try out eReaders and eBooks; a place to listen to oral histories from Special Collections on MP3 readers at an MP3 station; and a chance to see notable rare books from Special Collections. As the exhibit illustrates, Hennepin County Library has not only remained relevant through the past 125 years, it has become increasingly essential as young and old from all walks of life rely on it for personal and professional growth, entertainment and community interaction. The library’s mission says it best: “Nourishing minds, transforming lives, building community together.” The opening program and the exhibit will be on display through Sept. 30 for free. One hundred and twenty-five years really is something to celebrate! Langer Thompson is Director of Hennepin County Library. In 1893, the original Minneapolis Public Library was known as the Main Library of the Minneapolis Public Library, but for its first years of existence, from 1889-1893, it was the only Minneapolis Public Library building until the North Branch was built. It was located at 10th and Hennepin.

Women With Low Thyroid FREE SEMINAR Tuesday, June 28th at 7:00pm Do you suffer from any of these LOW THYROID symptoms?

❏ What mechanism causes 70% of hypothyroidism in the U.S.… ❏ Why you are taking Thyroid Medications but still feel lousy ❏ The 6 different patterns of thyroid problems ❏ What lab tests are needed to identify your problem ❏ Natural solutions to improve your low thyroid problems Tuesday, June 28th 7:00 pm Hampton Inn, 7740 Flying Cloud Drive, Eden Prairie Dr. Phil Gilman DC FMA FASBE Chiropractor Due to the high demand and sensitivity of this information, seating is limited Call Seminar registration at 651-681-8199. If line is busy, KEEP CALLING.

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, June 28th at 7:00 PM at the Hampton Inn, 7740 Flying Cloud Drive, Eden Prairie. Please call 651-681-8199 to reserve a seat today!

Comic shop does business the old-fashioned way BY MIKE HANKS • SUN NEWSPAPERS Old heroes inevitably step aside for a new generation of characters and readers, but even as technology changes the way the product can be delivered, there’s still a market for the old-fashioned comic book. That’s the belief of a duo that opened a new comic book shop in Bloomington last month. Captain Jack’s Comic Book Adventures is exactly what a comic book shop is supposed to be, a destination for the latest tales of Batman, Spider-Man and Green Lantern, and a place to find thousands of treasures from decades past. Many comic book shops have diversified, selling baseball and football cards or other collectibles. Captain Jack’s deviates only slightly from the world of comic books. There’s a small selection of comic book action figures and popular non-sport trading cards, such as Pokemon and Yugioh, but Superman and X-Men comics of yesteryear dominate the floor space. The store is the evolution of years of collecting and dealing back issues on a

part-time basis through comic book shows and online, according to co-owner Kevin Timm of Bloomington. Without a comic book store anywhere in Bloomington, Timm is filling the void with co-owner Tim Lohn, who owns The College of Comic Book Knowledge, an Uptown Minneapolis comic book destination for more than three decades. In addition to back issues, Captain Jack’s has a bountiful supply of trade paperbacks, which are compilations of multiple comic books. Some comprise the earliest issues of comic books from the 1960s, others collect more recent stories that spanned several issues of a popular series. The store also carries the latest comic books for children, including Archie, The Simpsons and several Disney titles. For collectors of multiple monthly titles Captain Jack’s offers a subscription service, which reserves copies of comic book titles each month, and at a discount of up to 20 percent. There’s also a store discount program that provides a discount of 10 percent for those who purchase a membership card for $10. COMIC BOOKS: TO NEXT PAGE

Comic books FROM PREVIOUS PAGE There are many rare and obscure comics to be found inside Captain Jack’s, and the store will buy quality comics from private collectors, primarily books from the 1960s and ‘70s, according to Timm. The store opened days before DC Comics, the publisher of titles such as Superman and Batman, announced it is renumbering and retooling its entire line of books this fall. That means starting over at issue No. 1, and in some cases tweaking the origin of longstanding heroes. As DC looks to update and energize its numerous monthly titles, the company will also offer readers an opportunity to purchase digital copies of the books the same day they reach comic shop shelves. For those who want to follow the adventures of Batman the digital format means never having to set foot in a comic book store. As comic books have struggled to maintain a place in American culture, the growth of digital comic books, which are already available on a limited basis, could be considered a blow to the proprietors of comic book stores such as

Captain Jack’s. But digital comics serve a small percent of the comic book readership, according to Kent Timm, Kevin’s brother who helps out at the store. Most comic book fans “want to pick up something to read,” he said. Interest among comic book collectors in the digital version of their favorite titles is minimal, he said. When it comes to the printed page, “there’s still a good market for it,” he said.

Storm spotter

“Once a tornado is there, well, OK,

FROM PAGE 1 In his 19 years as a weather spotter, Bloedow has reported hail and wall clouds, but he’s never seen a live tornado. He’s OK with that. “To me, I’m more interested in what leads up to the tornado,” he said. “Once a tornado is there, well, OK, it’s happening, it’s devastating, it’s amazing – it’s so powerful. But you also have to remember what’s happening down on the ground, what’s happening to people’s lives, businesses and homes.” Trained storm spotters are volunteer amateur or “ham” radio operators organized into groups known as Skywarn networks. Spotter reports are radioed into a central location, where data is collected and forwarded to the NWS office in Chanhassen. Bloedow also belongs to the Bloomington Communications Group, a group of amateur radio operators who operate a Skywarn center from a “radio room” at Bloomington Civic Plaza. Radio reports are more reliable than phone or web reports because storms can damage electrical supplies and cell phone towers, Bloedow said. Radio oper-

ators are licensed by the Federal Communications Commission and tested and certified every two years. Bloedow has been a Skywarn instructor for 14 years and has encouraged his wife Debbie and 16-year-old son Alex to become certified spotters. His students’ ages range from 12 to 95 and many have technical backgrounds including computer programming or broadcast radio engineering. About 3,000 active spotters work in the seven-county Twin Cities area, said Todd Krause, warning coordination meteorologist at the NWS Chanhassen office. Satellite and Doppler radar are important forecasting tools that provide a big-picture view of weather patterns, Krause said. “(Radar) is crucial to our weather warnings, but it’s still just a machine,” he said. ”You have to have people out there watching.” A weather spotter in St. Louis Park reported the first touchdown of the May 22 tornado that tore through Golden Valley, North Minneapolis and Fridley, Krause said. Spotters, sheriff ’s deputies and police officers are often the first to report tornadoes. Reports are relayed to TV, radio and public safety officials;

it’s happening, it’s devastating, it’s amazing – it’s so powerful. counties activate warning sirens. “When you have a report of an actual tornado, people sit up and take notice much more quickly,” Krause said. “When they know there’s a tornado on the ground, they’re much more apt to seek shelter.” Minnesota recorded 117 tornadoes last year, but it’s difficult to predict weather patterns this year, said NWS meteorologist Tom Hultquist. Statistics show that June is the month with the highest number of tornadoes, followed by July, Krause said. Weather spotting is Bloedow’s hobby, but he works as a dispatcher at the communications center operated by the Bloomington Police Department. Dispatchers answer 911 calls from panicked callers reporting fires, car accidents or medical emergencies and pass them on to police, fire or ambulance departments. Bloedow listens carefully to callers and relays information quickly and

accurately, qualities that serve him well in his dual roles as dispatcher and weather spotter, said dispatch center coordinator Sgt. Jeffery Schwiesow. “He’s able to take a kind of a chaotic situation when he’s talking to people, calm it down, and pass that information on to the users, be it the weather service, or be it the police, fire (departments),” Schwiesow said. As a spotter, Bloedow has developed a healthy respect for storms. While reporting from the field, he advises students in his spotter training classes to stay safe by avoiding unnecessary risks. “The power of nature, we tend to underestimate it,” he said. “In a big storm, you realize how insignificant you can be, compared to a whole storm or severe weather event – hurricanes, tornadoes, and floods.” For more information about the NWS office in Chanhassen and the Skywarn storm spotter program, visit xr.com/spotters.

Man carrying pipe robs Bloomington SuperAmerica BY MIKE HANKS • SUN NEWSPAPERS A masked man wielding a pipe robbed a Bloomington convenience store last week. The man, wearing all black clothing, including a mask and glove, entered Super America at 1800 90th St. E. about 4 a.m. Sunday, June 12. With a pipe in hand he walked behind the cashier’s counter and demanded money from an employee. The employee complied and the perpetrator departed on foot. The employee was not injured during the incident, according to Bloomington Deputy Chief of Police Rick Hart.

the woman select the blender for a second floor store shelf, take it down to the first floor and pass it off to the man, who took the blender to the store’s customer service counter to return it for store credit, Hart explained. A loss prevention officer confronted the man and arrested him. He was found to be in possession of narcotics at the time of his arrest, and in violation of an order for protection pertaining to the woman he was with, Hart noted. The woman was observed entering a vehicle in the parking lot after exiting the store. She was confronted at the vehicle and cited for theft, Hard added.

parking lot. When one of the perpetrators noticed a resident looking out onto the parking lot he fled the area, according to Hart. When officers arrived on the scene two people fled the area. The 18-year-old man, who showed signs of alcohol consumption, was caught and arrested, Hart noted. The second perpetrator eluded police and was not arrested. Items that appeared to have been removed from vehicles, including a GPS receiver, a case of compact discs and clothing, were found in a pile near the parking lot, Hart said.

A Minneapolis duo was arrested after attempting to pass off a blender from the shelves at Kohl’s as a merchandise return. The 37-year-old woman and the 43year-old man were foiled June 14 after passing off the blender inside Kohl’s and returning it for store credit, Hart said. Loss prevention personnel observed

An 18-year-old Bloomington man was arrested after he was observed searching for unlocked vehicles in an apartment parking lot. Police were called 2:10 a.m. June 11 after a resident of the apartment complex, on the 8300 block of Stanley Road, looked out of an apartment window and saw two people who appeared to be checking for unlocked vehicles in the

A 25-year-old Minneapolis man also failed to outrun police on June 11. Police responded to a report of breaking glass at an apartment on the 8900 block of Old Cedar Avenue about 1 a.m., Hart said. Officers found a man and woman sitting in a vehicle in the parking lot. When officers approached the vehicle to question the duo the man appeared to be concealing something by

The man fought with the officers who tried to arrest him before being subdued. He was found to be in possession of suspected narcotics, Hart noted.

Assault A Burnsville couple was arrested following a suspected assault at the Knights of Columbus Hall June 12. A 24-year-old woman said she was celebrating her birthday at a dance being held at the hall. A man at the dance made unwanted advances toward her, so she struck him in the head, according to witnesses. Her 26-year-old husband was reported to have kicked the man, Hart explained. The victim, from Chaska, was taken to the hospital and treated for injuries. It was undetermined if assault charges would be filed against the couple, as the victim had not come forward to speak with police, Hart noted.

Use fireworks legally, safely The Independence Day holiday brings many backyard celebrations and fireworks displays. Several guidelines should be followed when using pyrotechnics. “Nothing that is legal in this state should explode or fly,” according to Bloomington Fire Chief Ulie Seal. “If it goes bang or boom, it’s illegal.” Legal fireworks in Minnesota include wire or wood sparklers, a variety of fountains that emit sparks or smoke, including devices that spin on the ground or attached to a post or tree by a nail or a string, and illuminating torches. Illegal fireworks include firecrackers of any size, rockets and Roman candles. Although there are legal fireworks in Minnesota, their use is prohibited on public property, according to the state fire marshal’s website. Following a wet spring, it is less likely fireworks will start a grass fire this year, but it’s still important to have a water source handy to extinguish fireworks or anything that ignites as a result of fireworks, according to Seal. And safety precautions should be taken when using fireworks, including “parental supervision for the kids,” he added.

JCC partners with Erik’s to create wellness network BY DANA FERGUSON • SUN NEWSPAPERS INTERN Many Sabes Jewish Community Center members along with other members of the community have joined the latest craze in fitness: clicking a mouse. Since the Sabes JCC partnered with Bloomington-based Erik’s Bike and Board Shop in May in creating a cause on the Plus3 Network, about 360 individuals have signed up for accounts on the website and amassed more than $2,400 for the St. Louis Park-based Sabes JCC simply by doing physical activity and logging it on the website. The Plus3 network allows members to support the cause of their choice financially by doing some form of physical activity and logging the activity in the form of “kudos,” or points, that translate to dollars from sponsors. The website also allows various forms of motivation toward wellness, including social networking and support from friends, competition created by various leader boards and the ability to contribute to philanthropic causes. Stuart Wachs, CEO of Sabes JCC, said the network has generated great

results in its first six weeks of use. He added that the overall aim of the network – to create wellness – is appreciated even more by members. “The volume of activity is incredible,” Wachs said. “We are burning through Erik’s money really quickly, which is great and we’re getting tremendous feedback from the people about the fun they’re having because they’re tracking their activities, because they’re receiving positive feedback from friends and because they’re raising money for a good cause.” Rick Sutton, the co-founder and CEO of the Plus3 Network, explained the network aims to reward both the individual as well as the community through “sweat equity,” or the process of rewarding individuals for being active. “What we’ve tried to do is create a sense of community and giving back where every time someone does something positive for themselves, they’re also doing something positive for the community,” Sutton said. “We create a 365-day virtual fitness fundraiser.” The network also serves to provide varied sorts of motivation to allow each user to “make it count,” as the network

describes it, in whichever way inspires them most. Sutton said the network allows for mixing forms of incentives in order to create a personalized effect. “Some of us are more competitive and we’re always looking to achieve better results,” Sutton said. “Others are more interested in taking care of others first and giving back and having a stronger sense of that within their community, and within Plus3 you can build an environment that allows you to mix those two factors in any way that you please.” Member Doreen DePaulo said she was doing the activity prior to joining the website but finds the philanthropic value helpful on days she doesn’t feel motivated. DePaulo currently sits atop the leader board for walking, which she attributes to walking her dog twice a day and gaining incentive from the website. “It’s given me the incentive to keep it up,” DePaulo said. “Some days you just feel like doing it, so I do. Otherwise there are other days where I’d rather not, but I think ‘Well, if I don’t do it then I don’t get any points’ so I do it anyway. It kind of gives me incentive to keep going.” Wachs also mentioned that he feels

motivated to engage in extra physical activity because of the kudos he can accrue, but he gains more incentive from the sense of competition. He also said his wife has her own way of being inspired to be active as a result of the Plus3 network. “I’m a really type A sort of person, and I find this very motivating because I can sort of fight for the top positions in various leader boards … whereas my wife actively uses this and she is completely opposite and she just loves the interaction between her and her friends,” Wachs said. “So whatever motivates you, you can get that because that’s the way that Plus3 works.” Erik Saltvold, CEO and founder of Erik’s Bike and Board, said he and his employees are excited to sponsor the Sabes JCC in its efforts to promote activity and wellness as the network benefits the community overall. Saltvold said the mindset of motivation from the website is similar to the one he hopes to inspire in his stores. WELLNESS: TO PAGE 23

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.

Wellness FROM PAGE 18 “What’s better than the feeling you get from a good bike ride? Knowing that your fun bike ride is helping someone else,” Saltvold said. “The Sabes JCC is the first Minnesota nonprofit on the Plus3 Network and we are excited to help the JCC in their outreach and development efforts.” Wachs said Erik’s Bike and Board gains a great deal from the partnership with the JCC. “For Erik’s, they’re building a nice relationship with the community because the people who are working out

and being active on Plus3 are appreciative of the people giving the dollars that are driving the JCC,” Wachs said. Overall, Wachs expressed his feelings of satisfaction with the program and the results it has yielded so far – not solely due to financial gains but due to gains in wellness. “The philanthropy money that we get, sure it’s important to us – I mean we wouldn’t exist without nonprofit support – but the overriding reason that we did this is to inspire people to be active,” Wachs said. “It’s a really important part of our mission and we’re really satisfied with the results we’re seeing as people feel so much more inspired.”

Joan Cutter Joan Cutter (Jo-Ann) Age 90, of Richfield. Our dear little mom passed away peacefully at home, as she wished. Beloved wife of Jerry Cutter. Preceded in death by Jerry; parents, Clare and Hollis Griffin, and too-soon-taken son, Chip. Survived by daughters, Holly Bauman and Polly Cutter, and sons, Gerry Cutter (Margie) and Brian Cutter (Noella); three grandchildren, eight great-grandchildren. Beautiful and gentle and kind are the words to describe mom. Always doing her very best no matter how large or small the task, for the sake of her family. Mother thought the best of everyone. Accomplished in so many areas but never thought so; seamstress, cook, and the best 'shopper' in the world. Studied to be a meteorologist at the U night school but had to quit when it became “too cold to take the street car and transfer twice.” Before marrying, mom was an elevator operator and occasional tour guide at Dayton's downtown, where she met “the most handsome man in the store,” who coincidentally was also very interested in the little red-haired girl in the elevator. He brought her a carnation for her lapel every day. Six weeks after they first spoke at the Dayton Company picnic at Excelsior Amusement Park, Jerry and Joan were engaged. When our brother, Chip, was so badly injured by a drunk driver, mother went every day to be with Chip for over four years until his passing in 1979. May our loving Heavenly Father grant our beautiful mother full reward for her selfless, loving life. “Precious in the sight of the Lord is the homegoing of one of His own.” Psalm 116:15 Happy 67th Wedding Anniversary, mom and dad 6/26. Your children love you so. XO

Ride organizer Julian Boucher, left, and Chief Arvol Looking Horse, right, lead riders participating in the Tail Feather Woman peace ride through Bloomington’s streets to Pond-Dakota Mission Park June 17 for lunch and rest. The group had been riding for more than a week from northeastern South Dakota to participate in the World Peace and Prayer Day ceremonies in Mendota. (Photos by Mike Hanks • Sun Newspapers)

Peace mission FROM PAGE 1 He committed to organizing World Peace and Prayer Day, held annually on the summer solstice, June 21. Over the years the annual gathering has been held worldwide, including Australia, Ireland, South Africa and Japan. The horseback ride to Peace and Prayer Day was organized to honor Tail Feather Woman, whose vision and cultural influence following the Battle of Little Bighorn is considered to have had a significant bearing on the indigenous people of today, according to the website. Traveling by horseback through Minnesota presents numerous logistical and organizational challenges. Julian Boucher of Hankinson, N.D., organized the ride. There were 16 riders who participated for the duration of ride, from teenagers to tribal elders. Other riders joined for a portion of the journey, and a group of 19 arrived at Pond-Dakota

Mission Park last week. Most days the group rides 30 to 36 miles, with a few rest days built into the schedule, according to Boucher. In addition to the riders, several support vehicles made the trek along county roads, neighborhood streets and the occasional highway, including a film crew that is chronicling the journey for a documentary, Boucher explained. One of the support vehicles is an RV that provides a kitchen for meal preparation. Each night the group would set up camp at a city or county park, or occasionally farmland that was offered to the group, according to Boucher. Finding places to set up camp and organizing a route that avoided high traffic highways as often as possible provided plenty of advance preparation. But identifying a sensible route is only part of the challenge to completing the ride. Many cities and counties have regulations that restrict horseback riding, including Bloomington. Stephanie Smith of Bloomington was

not among the riders last week, she was part of the local support crew for the group’s passage through the city. Putting her event planning experience to work on behalf of World Peace and Prayer Day, she coordinated the group’s passage to Pond-Dakota Mission Park and on to Fort Snelling, where the group would camp that night. The horseback ride illustrates the challenges of allowing indigenous people to express their faith in a world of permits and obstacles that may restrict such activities. Obtaining permits for events such as the horseback ride means making compromises in some areas and can force a change in the route because of local restrictions, Smith explained. The challenges to completing the ride take a backseat to the purpose of it, according to Boucher. “We want peace throughout the world,” he said. “We all believe in what we’re doing.” Information about World Peace and Prayer Day is available online at worldpeaceandprayerday2011.org.

Bob Eastman and Eliel Yorobe were honored. “Both Eastman and Yorobe are great kids,” said Kennedy coach Justin Hall. “Eastman was one of our most improved players this season. He joined

the varsity as a freshman and consistently got better. “Yorobe has been on our team since seventh grade and will try out for North Dakota State University’s golf squad next season.” Eastman and Yorobe were Kennedy’s top scorers in the 36-hole Class 3A, Section 2 tournament June 2 and 6 at Oakdale Golf Course in Hutchinson.

Eastman shot rounds of 82 and 78 for a 160 total. Yorobe also had a 36-hole score of 160. He had rounds of 84 and 76. Kennedy was 11th in the team standings after the first round.

Other Kennedy competitors in the section tournament were sophomore Joe Larson and junior Cory Schroeder. Peer has been elected captain of next year’s team. – Compiled by Greg Kleven

Kennedy’s ‘Cinderella’ story has happy ending BY GREG KLEVEN • SUN NEWSPAPERS Two different versions of the Bloomington Kennedy baseball team emerged during the 2011 season. There was the struggling Eagle squad that opened the season with a 1-8 record. Then there was the revitalized Kennedy team that went 13-6 during the last twothirds of the season. Thanks to that turnaround, Kennedy ended up winning its section and took

the state consolation championship while finishing with a .500 record of 1414. “It was two completely different seasons for us,” said Kennedy head coach Matt Hanson. “We struggled early until the players got together and decided things had to improve. “The guys reported for extra batting practice before school and our bats came BASEBALL: TO NEXT PAGE

The Kennedy baseball player had a 6-2 pitching record and 3.63 ERA heading into the state Class 3A tournament last week.

Laura Berglund The Jefferson girls lacrosse player scored three goals in the Jaguars’ 12-11 victory over Stillwater in the state tournament thirdplace game June 10 at Chanhassen High School.

Jan Ketterson The Jefferson junior placed 10th in the 3,200-meter run during the state Class AA track finals June 10. His time was 9 minutes, 25.33 seconds.

Labrishia Michael The Kennedy senior finished 13th in the discus at the state Class AA girls track and field meet. Michael threw the discus 104 feet at state. She was also an outstanding shot putter for the Eagles.

Kennedy baseball FROM PREVIOUS PAGE alive after our 1-8 start. And our pitching and defensive efforts improved as well.” Kennedy hit its peak level in the Class 3A, Section 6 playoffs, winning five consecutive games. Then Kennedy showed its resiliency at state. The Eagles lost a high-scoring 14-7 game to Maple Grove in the quarterfinals June 16 at Midway Stadium. But Kennedy bounced back to record exciting wins over Forest Lake (8-7) and Eden Prairie (7-6) to earn the state consolation championship June 17 at Dick Siebert Field on the University of Minnesota campus. “We had an unbelievable experience at state,” said Hanson. “We had great fan support and our guys kept hitting. “We beat a really good Eden Prairie team in the consolation finals.”

Tough start

Kennedy, making its eighth state baseball tourney appearance, had trouble containing Maple Grove’s offense in the opener. The Eagles gave up 15 hits and committed three errors against the state’s top-ranked team. Austin Nordby was Kennedy’s ace during the regular season, posting a 6-2 record and 3.64 ERA. But he encountered trouble against Maple Grove. Nordby pitched 1 1/3 innings before giving way to relievers Chad Allmann and Josh Flanders. Kennedy trailed 7-0 heading into the bottom of the second but tried to claw back into the game, scoring four times in the bottom half of the inning. Arich Juberian connected for a tworun double. Montana Schowalter and Zach Horn contributed RBI singles. Maple Grove added four more runs in the top of the third before Kennedy answered with two runs on RBI singles by Kris Ashland and Juberian, who fin-

ished with three hits. Zorn added a run-scoring single in the fifth to make the score 13-7. He had three hits. Kennedy’s senior catcher was later chosen to the all-state tournament team. He batted .444 entering state action. Maple Grove added an insurance run in the top of the seventh. “Our pitchers gave them too many free passes,” said Hanson. “We walked six and hit two batters. “But our guys came through with another double-digit hits total [13] and never quit.”

Consolation success

Kennedy held on for an 8-7 victory over Forest Lake in the consolation semifinals. Kennedy had an 8-4 lead entering the top of the seventh before Forest Lake made things interesting by scoring three times. Schowalter was the winning pitcher, working five innings. Patrick Howe and Flanders threw one inning of relief each. Flanders was credited with a save. Horn continued his superb hitting. He went 3-for-4 with three RBI. Juberian had three hits and scored twice. Kevin Houts came through with two hits. Kennedy claimed its consolation title with a hard-fought 7-6 win over Eden Prairie later that day. Kennedy scored six runs (five unearned) in the first inning, but EP steadily came back, cutting the margin to 6-5 in the fifth. Kennedy boosted its advantage to 7-5 with a run in the bottom of the fifth. Eden Prairie scored its final run in the sixth. Horn and Paul Baltes had two hits apiece. Caleb Carlson provided one hit and two RBI. Ashland came through with two hits and two RBI. Nordby was the starting and winning pitcher, improving his record to 7-3. Allmann and Horn saw relief duty. Horn picked up a save.

Houts, Horn are named Kennedy baseball co-MVPs Bloomington Kennedy’s state Class 3A baseball tournament consolation championship team announced its post-season awards. The Eagles won the Section 6 title before advancing to state and winning two of three games. Kennedy finished 14-14. Seniors Kevin Houts and Zach Horn shared the team’s Most Valuable Player award. Houts batted .350 entering the state tournament while Horn had a .444 average. Horn, a catcher, received the Defensive MVP honor. He was also named to the allstate tournament team. Kennedy sophomore third baseman Arich Juberian received the Rookie Player of the Year award. He batted .390 entering state action. Seniors Caleb Carlson and Austin Nordby were Scholar Award winners. Sophomore Kris Ashland was named Most Improved Player. The Eagle Award went to Carlson. Nordby was selected as the team’s Pitching MVP. Next season’s Kennedy tri-captains are Juberian, junior Nick Warren and junior Chad Allmann. – Compiled by Greg Kleven

Jefferson lost to eventual state champion Blake (16-2) June 8 in the semifinals. Jefferson’s post-season awards reflected the many different contributors to the team’s success in 2011. “‘Good is the enemy of great’ was a theme of this year’s team,” said Jefferson co-head coach Gary Gregus. “No team becomes great without great captains and seniors leading the way. “Our captains took on that challenge this year and provided the leadership

along with their fellow seniors that helped us achieve our goal of getting to the state tournament.” Senior captain Laura Berglund was voted Most Valuable Player by her teammates and also received All-South Suburban Conference honorable mention. The three-year letter-winner finished with 28 goals, 18 assists and 35 ground ball recoveries while playing attack and center this season. Brenna Murray, another senior captain, was an all-conference selection. She was credited with 24 goals, 13 assists and 60 ground balls.
