Mark Gortze, president for Minnesota State Association of Letter Carriers, was facing Paulsen’s office as he addressed the organized crowd. “We don’t want a bailout. We just want to get the mail out,” he said. A mass of supporters lined

up along a walking path on West 78th Street, near Cub Foods, holding signs, chanting and having people sign petitions in favor of loosening a funding mandate set on the postal service. Paulsen’s office is across the street.

(Photo by Paul Groessel • Sun Newspapers)

“We’re asking for access to our own funds,” said Gortze. A federal law, from a bill passed in 2006, mandates that the postal service set aside $5.5 billion a year to fund future retirement benefits. In 2006, when the economy was better, $5.5 billion a year was feasible, said Mike Zagaros of the Minneapolis letter carriers union. The postal service cannot access those funds until 2016, Gortze said, and the postal service is the only federal group that has a pre-funding benefits requirement for future postal workers. Gortze said he just wants the public to know that the postal service is not asking for taxpayer dollars. If H.R. 1351 becomes law, the postal service could use those funds designated for benefits, Gortze said, and it would leave the postal service with millions in surplus funding. Gortze said Paulsen has been “noncommittal” on signing the bill. Paulsen could not be reached for comment.

A decline in revenue and transactions may mean Eden Prairie’s Hennepin County Service Center will be closing after the first of the year. In a presentation to the Hennepin County Commissioners Sept. 27, county administrator Richard Johnson proposed a budget $50 million less than last year. Among his savings proposals is the service center, which offers a variety of services from passports to motor vehicle services. His budget would also cut a total 127 positions for the coming year. Johnson estimates the county could lose $33 million in state revenues in 2011 and another $20 million in 2012 as a result of changes made to the state’s budget. Kathy Schons, the county’s service centers division manager, said Eden Prairie’s location is “the lower traffic center of the seven.” The Eden Prairie location has 8,0009,000 transactions each month, compared to 9,000-15,000 for the other

Hennepin County locations. The nice thing about the Eden Prairie service center was you seldom had to wait in line, said County Commissioner Randy Johnson, who represents Southern Eden Prairie. The unfortunate thing (was it wasn’t enough) to justify keeping it open, he said. The service center currently employs around 10 people, Schons said, and the county government is hoping it can shut the Eden Prairie location without laying off full-time employees. However, to make that happen, “temporary” staff will no longer be scheduled and full-time staff will take their places at the other Hennepin County service centers. The proposal is part of a preliminary budget, and Hennepin County Commissioners won’t vote on a final budget until December. Schons said she can’t predict how things will turnout, but they will have a system ready to relocate staff if needed. Sun Newspapers Senior Managing Editor Paul Wahl contributed to this report.

Recycling – if not now when? The time has finally come. For all other recycling buffs out there, we are now able to recycle what should have always been able to be recycled. The announcement of two Twin Cities waste companies now accepting items such as yogurt containers and bottle caps is long overdue. Before, the only recycling items accepted were numbered one and two, which were usually plastic drink bottles and milk containers. The little numbers on the bottom of plastics, known as the “resin code,” identify what type of plastic it is and whether it’s suitable for recycling. Now, with addition of more items to be recycled, hundreds of tons will be spared from landfills. Now that more plastic recyclables are being collected, there is even less of an excuse not to recycle. Allied Waste, which is one of the companies expanding the items that are acceptable for recycling and

CHRISTPOPHER DILLMANN Excelsior/Shorewood Community Editor

the hauler for the majority of the South Lake’s residents, will now accept numbers one through seven. However, it’s not just plastics when it comes to recycling. Recycling in general is something that we are really behind on. As someone who recycles everything I possibly can, this is a huge step. I’m astounded when I go to throw my trash away what is considered “garbage” by people. Though I live alone, I will throw out a single bag of trash once every two or three weeks. When I look at how often I take my recycling out, it would be insane to think of that ending up in a landfill and not being

reused. Recycling in general should be instilled in everybody -- honestly, it should be common sense, and really is a no-brainer. Is it that those who don’t recycle are lazy? If so, that’s pretty pathetic. It is a little more comprehensible if recycling is not offered, which is should be everywhere. Shorewood, through Allied Waste, offers incentives for recycling. The “RecycleBank” program credits people with points for the amount of recycling collected in the city. The points are then redeemed for rewards such as gift certificates, coupons and special offers. If you are reading this via print and decide to recycle the paper, this and every other newspaper in circulation around the country would contribute to saving a quarter of a million trees per year. The fact is no newspaper or any recyclable paper product should ever

end up in a trashcan. Hennepin County is also continuing efforts to help people sustain better practices when it comes to waste. Celebrating its 10th anniversary, the “Choose to Reuse” program encourages residents to buy used or rent products instead of buying them new. For anyone who argues that recycling costs don’t outweigh trash is plain wrong. First, it’s cheaper according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Office of Solid Waste. Curbside pick up for recycling can run $50 to more than $150 per ton of material, while trash pick up can run from $70 to more than $200 per ton of material. And for arguments sake, even if it did cost more the benefit of protecting our planet and helping the human race become better stewards would outweigh any monetary cost. The real cost is to our planet. So do your part, please.

tively blow up the existing system with ACME dynamite to achieve better outcomes. The majority on the current school board committed to the right objectives but had the wrong plan. Let’s take a moment to come up with a better plan and make sure that we have the right people in place to make it work. Our schools have already lost hundreds of students and millions of dollars in funding because of the current Eden Prairie School Board’s full commitment to a bad idea. I encourage each of you to consider voting for all four BEEP candidates: Bratrud, Espe, Estall and Parker.

Remember the Roadrunner on Nov. 8 and vote for “BEEP! BEEP!” Dan Kitrell Eden Prairie

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR BEEP! BEEP! To the editor: Every voter in Eden Prairie may vote for up to four candidates for Eden Prairie School Board on Tuesday, Nov. 8. I encourage each of you to vote for BEEP! “BEEP” is an acronym for four candidates: Karla Bratrud, David Espe, John Estall and Holly Parker. Each of these four candidates has a distinguished background and a clear and positive vision for the future. To help you remember “BEEP,” you may recall the “Roadrunner” cartoons of your childhood. In these cartoons,

Wile E. Coyote fully committed to one bad idea after another in an effort to catch the Roadrunner, each time ending in a predictably bad outcome. Although viewers could see the looming disaster of jet-powered roller skates, rocket-propelled sleds, bat-winged flight suits and other poorly conceived plans, the coyote would fully commit to each attempt that would end in a spectacular failure every time. Although the objectives of closing the achievement gap and improving results for all of our students are shared by all candidates, the BEEP candidates realize that you do not need to figura-

know Karla is up to the challenge. She has my vote and I ask that you also give her yours. Ann Hansen Eden Prairie

Letters FROM PREVIOUS PAGE Karla while our sons participated in cross country, Nordic skiing and track together at the high school. During those four years I have seen her in action as a captain’s parent for two sports and watched her volunteer her time and talents to the schools in many capacities. Not only am I amazed at her boundless energy but also her integrity and steadfast commitment to academics. One thing that bothered me this last year regarding the actions of the superintendent and school board were the lack of transparency. I couldn’t imagine a business being successful with this same lack of transparency, nor can I fathom a business treating its customers the way our district leadership has treated theirs. Karla will provide this transparency and dedicated commitment to academic focus. She will concentrate on helping our students be successful and through her sense of fiscal responsibility. She will help our schools direct funding to the right places. Karla’s beliefs and values truly emulate the kind of person I want on the school board. The board will face many important decisions this next year, but I

Dave Espe for Eden Prairie School Board To the editor: On Nov. 8, we will elect four Eden Prairie School Board members. I would like to tell you why I will cast one of my four votes for Dave Espe. Eden Prairie has a long history of supporting our children in attaining an excellent education. In order for our next generation to be effective and compete in the 21st century, we need to make sure we are educating every student who enters our school system, whether he or she is struggling academically, or is gifted and needing to be challenged while still remembering to focus on the majority of children who are somewhere in the middle of that spectrum. As a parent of five children who attend or have graduated from Eden Prairie Schools, Dave understands that each child is unique and that our schools must meet the needs of all children in Eden Prairie. He firmly believes that parents deserve to live in a community that has strong

Roe family singers earn McKnight Fellowship BY PAUL WAHL • SUN NEWSPAPERS Most musicians perform for the love of performing, the camaraderie and the experience of being onstage. Gigs don’t always pay the bills, but performers find something else to supplement their income. Once you reach the point where you’re doing it full-time, you might say you’ve arrived. By that definition, Kim and Quillan Roe of Plymouth have arrived. The Roes are the leaders of the award-winning Roe Family Singers, an eclectic mix of musicians who perform across the Twin Cities and around the country. The group formed in 2003 but its coming of age happened this past summer. The group was awarded a McKnight Artist Fellowship, which is designed to provide artists “resources and opportunities they need to succeed.” For the Roes, that meant $25,000 and the impetus for both of them to give up their “other” jobs to be full-time musicians.

The entire experience is best described as Kismet. “In one week’s time we received three emails telling us about the McKnight Fellowship and telling us we should apply,” Quillan said. They attended an information meeting. “We looked around the room at all of the really great musicians there and thought to ourselves ‘what are we doing here?’” Quillan said. Undeterred, they submitted the paperwork and a CD of their music. Eventually they were asked to perform live for a panel of judges. “We had been praying for a sign from God that we were supposed to be giving up our jobs and going full-time with the music, and this was it,” Quillan said. Quillan, a Plymouth native and a product of its public schools, has been performing since age 15. Eventually he joined the band Accident Clearinghouse. Some years later, he met his future wife, Kim, and they were married. They have two young daughters – Elspeth and

Onnee -- who are also living the musician life. From their dating days on, Kim had bugged Quillan about starting a band together. He resisted. “I had seen too many couples who had bands and fought and eventually broke up over it,” Quillan said. “I did not want that to happen.” One night in 2004, Quillan was contacted by phone about Accident Clearinghouse performing a Johnny Cash Tribute. The band had by then broken up, so Quillan said he covered the phone and yelled to Kim, “Do you still want to start a band together?” She said “yes” and the tribute was their first gig. The Roe Family Singers was on the road. One of the first members added to the band was Adam Wirtzfeld, who plays the saw. Yes, the saw. “Kim and Quillan have amassed a small army of people who each bring something really great to the table, and when we all combine our efforts, we can

create something that none of us can do alone,” said Wirtzfeld, who is a cartoonist and graphic artist by trade. He said a big attraction for him is the opportunity to play for audiences from children to grandparents in venues from schools to street festivals to “dive bars.” It wasn’t necessarily the music initially. “The old-timey and early country music that makes up our mainstay is not necessarily music that I had a great appreciation for when we started,” Wirtzfeld said. “But it just seemed to work really well with the saw.” Now he says he has a “soft spot” for the type of music the Roe Family Singers perform. Other band members include Kurt Froehlich on mandolin, Dan Gaarder on guitar and vocals, Rich Rue on dobro guitar (think Lester Flatt) and dulcimer, Jon Olson on upright bass, Ric Lee on fiddle and Rob David on jug.

Hires FROM PAGE 1 intendent during October, until a longterm interim could be determined. Pladsen is the school district’s Director of Teaching and Learning for elementary schools. “Janet has outstanding qualifications,” Board member John Estall said of Pladsen, who holds a superintendent’s license and has served as an assistant superintendent at another school district. Estall and board members Suzanne Kutina and Carol Bomben form a committee that will look for an interim superintendent to fill the position November until a new superintendent is found. The board expects to hire a search firm to conduct the superintendent search, which will begin in January, after four winners of the November election take their seats. Bob Noyed introduced himself to the entire board Sept. 27 as well. He was chosen as executive director of communications and community relations, a position left open in July. Noyed comes to Eden Prairie with 26 years of communications experience,

board member Ranee Jacobus said during her introduction of Noyed. He will be leaving the Wayzata School District, where he has served as its communications director since March 2006. Prior to that, he was with Elk River and Robbinsdale school districts. He has also run his own communications business, and is a past president of the National School Public Relations Association. “There was complete consensus among the board members involved in the process,” and among staff members, said board member Kim Ross. Ross, Jacobus and board member Chuck Mueller took part in the hiring process with administrators. The board usually does not take such an active role in hiring higher-level staff positions, but changed its policy in August so it could take part in hiring this specific position. The school board had also agreed its wants the communications head to take an active role in reaching out to the community, hence the addition of ‘community relations’ to the job title. Noyed is expected to start at the end of this month.

Dr Phil Gilman, Thyroid Researcher


• Fatigue • Weight gain • Mood changes/Depression • Sluggish thinking • Cold hands, feet or all over • Hair loss, or thinning hair

❏ 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, October 11 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, October 11th at 7:00 PM at the Hampton Inn, 7740 Flying Cloud Drive, Eden Prairie. Please call 651-681-8199 to reserve a seat today!

band in the Battle of the Jug Bands in Minneapolis. The group is perhaps best known for its regular Monday night performances at the 331 Club in Minneapolis. Working with owner Jarret Oulman, they have created a Twin Cites tradition. “Those performances are really what started the band on the path to where it is now,” Quillan said. Since Kim and Quillan didn’t know enough songs to fill 90 minutes in the early going of the gig, they recruited their musician “family” and friends. When they’re not at the 331, it’s possible to catch the Roe Family Singers at events such as St. Paul Farmer’s Market, festivals of all sorts and even the Plymouth Library. Later this month they will perform at the Ozark Folk Center in Mountain View, Ark. The group released its second CD earlier this summer, “The Owl and the Bat and the Bumble Bee.” It contains a number of original performances along with some well-known traditional standards. More touring and recording are on the schedule for the remainder of 2011 and into next year. McKnight Foundation honored 43 artists and ensembles for 2011-12 in 12 disciplines. “The McKnight Artist Fellowships nurture and honor the dedication of Minnesota’s individual artists,” said Robert J. Struyk, chairman of the board of the organization. “As we all benefit from their creative and hard work, we at McKnight are proud to support their ongoing success.”

County FROM PAGE 5 to $118 million, $61 million less than 2011. Johnson said that despite a sharp increase in basic-needs programs such as food support, the county is spending less on those programs. “We are reducing staffing even as caseloads and other responsibilities increase,” Johnson said. In July, the county had more than 129,000 residents receiving food support compared to 81,000 enrollees in July 2008. The final budget and property tax levy are expected to be adopted Dec. 13. – Thursday, Oct. 6, 2011 – Eden Prairie Sun-Current

No. 1 Eagles claim victory over Mpls. South S


Natalio Blanche

BY GREG KLEVEN • SUN NEWSPAPERS No. 1-ranked Eden Prairie got everybody involved in the scoring during its non-conference football game against Minneapolis South. The Eagles improved to 5-0 with a dominating 62-20 victory over the Tigers (3-2) Sept. 30. Eden Prairie will rejoin Lake Conference action this week by hosting Minnetonka at 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 6, at Aerie Stadium. Many area high school games are being played that night because of the Jewish holiday, Yom Kippur, that begins at sundown Friday, Oct. 7. The Skippers are 4-1 overall after a 35-7 loss to Wayzata last week. Minnetonka led 7-6 at halftime before the undefeated Trojans pulled away in the second half. “We know we will be going up against a strong, physical team this week,” said Eden Prairie coach Mike Grant. “We held a few of our injured players out of our game last week against Minneapolis South and should be pretty healthy to face Minnetonka.” Grant was able to rest many of his regulars for much of the second half against South. The Eagles led 14-0 after one quarter. Roy McGhee ran 25 yards for one touchdown and Connor Johnson caught a 35-yard scoring pass from quarterback Grant Shaeffer. Eden Prairie was ahead 28-6 at halftime. Andrew Larson (21-yard run) and Chris Erickson (13-yard run) came through with second-quarter touchdowns. McGhee scored his second touchdown of the game in the third quarter as the Eagles built a 35-14 lead. Eden Prairie scored four times in the fourth quarter. Charley Venable had touchdown runs of 15 and 24 yards. The Eagles’ defense scored the final two touchdowns. John Christiansen returned an interception 55 yards for a score. John Brisbois followed with a

The Eden Prairie boys soccer player has contributed to the Eagles’ winning record by scoring 13 points (11 goals, two assists) heading into late-season action. Blanche scored in four consecutive games – victories over Edina, Minnetonka and Burnsville and a loss to Wayzata.

Andrew Larson The Eagle senior running back gained 172 yards on 12 carries and scored four touchdowns during a 56-7 Lake Conference football win over Hopkins Sept. 23 at Aerie Stadium. The Associated Press ranks Eden Prairie first in its state Class 5A poll.

Allison Malmsten Malmsten won a singles match 6-7, 63, 7-5 during Eden Prairie’s 5-2 Lake Conference girls tennis victory over Hopkins Sept. 20.

Drake Michaelson The Eden Prairie senior linebacker returned an interception 29 yards for a touchdown as the Eagles overpowered Hopkins 56-7 in Lake Conference football action Sept. 23. Michaelson and his Eagle teammates had a 4-0 record after that victory.

Medo Youssef Youssef scored two goals during the Eden Prairie boys soccer team’s 5-1 boys victory over Edina Sept. 13. Eden Prairie was eighth in the state Class AA ratings with a 5-2-3 record.

Ellie Suek 43-yard interception for another touchown. Eden Prairie’s Sam Rosol kicked seven extra points. “Minneapolis South played hard and its coach told me it was their best game of the season,” said Grant. “We got a chance to see a lot of other players than our starters in action. And we worked on our passing game against South. “Defensively, Christensen and Brisbois came up with big intercep-

tions.” Eden Prairie had five players with 50 or more rushing yards. Larson led Eagle rushers with 107 yards on only eight carries. Ray Wilson gained 69 yards on four rushes. Chris Erickson provided 64 yards on four carries. Venable had 58 yards on four rushing attempts. McGhee carried five times for 53 yards. Shaeffer completed four of six passes for 53 yards. Johnson caught two passes for 38 yards.

Suek finished first in the 200-yard individual medley and helped Eden Prairie top Minnetonka 94-92 in Lake Conference swimming action Sept. 21. Suek had a winning time of 2 minutes, 13.27 seconds.

Eagle swimmers edge Tonka 94-92 in key Lake meet

In the Community, With the Community, For the Community

Eagle girls prepare for defense of section soccer title Bockin goes on scoring spree for EP kickers BY GREG KLEVEN • SUN NEWSPAPERS It is never easy defending a state championship. But Eden Prairie’s rebuilt girls soccer squad has made a strong statement that it intends to be a contender for the state title again this season. The Eagles, who were ranked third in Class AA last week, were 8-2-4 after playing to a scoreless tie against Edina on Oct. 1. Eden Prairie’s 10-game unbeaten streak ended with a 1-0 loss to Hopkins Sept. 27. “It was a close game and we had a few scoring opportunities,” said Eden Prairie coach Tony Bidwell. “Losing a big Lake Conference match was a letdown, but the girls have done well throughout the season.” Eden Prairie ninth-grader April Bockin has been one of the Eagles’ scoring leaders this season. She came through with two goals during Eden Prairie’s 2-0 victory over Bloomington Jefferson Sept. 25. Sophomore Katie Fuhs tended goal to preserve the shutout. Eden Prairie earned a 2-0 victory over Wayzata Sept. 22 as Bockin and junior Coursey Edwards scored. Bockin contributed a hat trick as the Eagles blanked St. Francis 4-0 Sept. 20. Fuhs was in goal for another EP shutout. Eden Prairie was slated to conclude its regular season against Minnetonka Oct. 4. The Eagles will take part in the Section 2AA tournament that will begin Oct. 13. Bidwell listed Edina, Burnsville, Jefferson and Prior Lake as top teams in Section 2AA – besides the Eagles. “We need to play with consistency throughout the playoffs,” said the Eagle coach. “It is a tough section.”

Local holes in one

Zubar ranks high

Travel coaches needed

Two Eden Prairie golfers recorded holes in one last week. Jim Fisher aced the 152-yard fifth hole at The Pines near Nisswa. He used a 5-iron. Kevin Unterreiner had a hole in one on the eighth hole at Cragun’s, using a pitching wedge.

Eden Prairie High School swimmer Kira Zubar ranks second in the metro area honor roll in two events. Zubar has the season’s second-best time in the 500-yard freestyle event with 5 minutes, 8.20 seconds. She has the second-ranked time of 1:54.86 in the 200 freestyle.

The Eden Prairie Baseball Association is accepting applications for traveling team coaches for the 2012 season.

It was a battle of two state girls swimming powerhouses. And Eden Prairie prevailed in the Lake Conference showdown against Minnetonka. The Eagles edged the Skippers 9492 in a Sept. 21 meet between teams ranked in the top five in Class AA. Eden Prairie won the 200-yard medley relay in 1 minute, 52.96 seconds. Members of that winning relay were Bre Thorne, Emma Novak, Sarah Coolidge and Ellie Suek. Kira Zubar placed second in the 200 freestyle (1:55.83). Suek was first in the 200 individual medley (2:13.27). Eagle teammate Alyssa Swanson was second (2:14.81). Eden Prairie diver Abbey Thomsen finished second with 166.15 points. Thorne was victorious in the 100 butterfly (58.65). Suek finished runner-up in 55.22 seconds. Zubar won the 500 freestyle in 5:05.82. Eden Prairie finished second in the 200 freestyle relay. Coolidge, Thorne, Marla Albanese and Suek combined for a time of 1:40.57. Thorne added a second-place time of 1:00.52 in the 100 backstroke. Erin Russoniello placed second in the 100 breaststroke (1:13.67). – COMPILED BY GREG KLEVEN

Depth, versatility aid Eagle volleyball success Wilhite is one of standouts for No. 8-ranked squad BY GREG KLEVEN • SUN NEWSPAPERS Eden Prairie’s volleyball team is ranked eighth in the state among Class 3A squads. The Eagles are living up to that lofty ranking with a 15-4 overall record. The Eagles, 4-0 in the Lake Conference, will host Edina in a 7 p.m. match Tuesday, Oct. 11. “We have good depth and everyone is contributing to our team,” said Eden Prairie coach Chad Becker. “Versatility is another strength our players have shown.” Senior co-captain Sarah Wilhite has been one of the Eden Prairie standouts this season. “Sarah earned All-State honorable mention honors last season and has good all-around

skills,” said Becker. Wilhite shares the Eagle captaincy with senior middle hitter Kirsten Peterson. Becker said he has also been impressed with the play of junior setter Maddie Reese, junior libero Jamie Cairncross and senior outside hitter Ellen Piechowski. Eden Prairie hosted the Nancy Pudas Invitational earlier this season and defeated Chanhassen in the championship match. The Eagles competed in the Apple Valley tournament Sept. 23-24. Eden Prairie lost its first match to Marshall 25-21, 25-18 before winning three consecutive matches to finish ninth. Eden Prairie defeated Jordan (25-17, 25-17), Hibbing (25-12, 25-9) and Bethlehem Academy (25-17, 25-20). Eden Prairie defeated Hopkins 25-14, 25-11, 25-13 in a Lake Conference match Sept. 27.

Eden Prairie senior outside hitter Sarah Wilhite is a key reason the Eagles are ranked eighth in the state with a 15-4 record. Wilhite was All-State honorable mention as a junior last season. (File photo)

At AirBroom Minnesota In Excelsior Can Help How does your chimney look? Are the bricks crumbling? Does it have White or Black exterior staining? Are you afraid to use your fireplace because you’re not sure how safe it is? When was the last time you used it? The professionals at AirBroom Minnesota Fireplace and Air Duct Cleaning in Excelsior can restore both your confidence and your chimney. Did you know that water causes more damage to masonry chimneys than fire? Your chimney, unlike other parts of your house, is constantly exposed to the elements. They are generally constructed of brick, mortar, tile, steel, and iron. All of these materials suffer deterioration as a result of prolonged contact with water. Freeze and thaw cycles so familiar here in the Twin Cities cause stress on the chimney. Water that has penetrated expands and contracts. Left unchecked it will cause interior and exterior damage to your home and masonry chimney. Some of the damage that can be caused includes: 1) spalled and broken exterior brickwork, 2) deteriorated masonry and metal firebox assemblies, 3) rusted dampers, 4) decayed mortar, cracked or missing flue liners, and in the worst case scenario damage to adjoining walls, ceilings, and woodwork. There are three main ways to prevent water damage. 1) Install a chimney cap. This is the most inexpensive measure to prevent water penetration to the flue and inside chimney elements. We sell and install locally manufactured caps for as little as $99. 2) Repair or replace a damaged chimney crown. The crown sits atop your chimney and covers and seals it from the flue liners to the chimney edge. Many chimneys are built with an inadequate crown constructed from common mortar mix. Mortar is not designed for and will not withstand years of prolonged moisture exposure without cracking and chipping which allows water to penetrate the chimney. A proper crown is constructed of a Portland

cement mixture and formed to provide an overhang drip edge. This assures the water will shed helping to prevent erosion in the mortar and brick of the chimneys surfaces. Keeping the crown “watertight” and shedding away from the sponge like masonry elements that the chimney is built of is the most important element to preventing deterioration. At AirBroom Minnesota we use the industry leading line of Saver products to build and repair chimneys. Use of these products allows us to pass on manufacturers material warranties of up to 15 years to our clients. 3) Waterproof your masonry chimney and crown. Most masonry is porous and will absorb large amounts of water. Brick acts like a sponge absorbing water and wicking it to the chimney interior. Products we use are specifically developed for use as waterproofing agents on masonry chimneys. These are vapor permeable – which means they allow the masonry to breath out but not in. This allows water that has penetrated the chimney to escape while preventing additional water from entering from the outside. Non vapor permeable sealers commonly available should never be used because they trap moisture inside actually accelerating deterioration. We use a special permeable sealer with a 10 year consumer warranty to protect your chimney. Doing this before deterioration occurs can save you hundreds or even thousands of dollars in future repairs. Water damage to chimneys is usually a slow subtle process. The problem is generally not obvious until it has become quite serious. Although these prevention measures may cost you a few dollars they can save you a lot more by preventing large future masonry repairs. The Hartmann’s at AirBroom Minnesota in Excelsior offer free no obligation repair estimates in the Western Metro area. Call John, Jim, or Lynda today to arrange a free no obligation estimate. Visit us at or call us at 952.545.2254. As a bonus, repair jobs over $750 scheduled with us prior to October 30th receive $100 off when you mention this article.

WORK! 952.392.6888


By: Ali Holman, co-owner of I think we can all agree that eating is fun. Not only is it a way for us to socialize, reward ourselves and comfort ourselves, it also is the one area of fitness where people have the most trouble. Wouldn’t it be great to know that the choices you make are actually helping your fitness program? More importantly, wouldn’t it be even better to banish the word “diet” from your vocabulary? Chances are, if you are embarking on a “diet”, it will have a beginning and an end. The end is usually followed by slowly going back to old habits and ends you right back where you started. With our clients, we really encourage them to focus on a Lifestyle Change with room for “cheat meals” and realistic goals; which inevitably lead to lifelong results and without the emotional roller coaster of a diet.

Core/Conditioning Training’s List of “Fat Burning Foods”


low-fat dairy

Eggs are high in protein and low in calories. You may have heard all the warnings about eggs and your health: opt for eggwhites for the low-cholesterol, fatburning effect. Eggs also contain the vitamin B-12, a great supplement for breaking down fat cells.

Studies show that women who eat low-fat dairy products (such as non-fat yogurt and low-fat milk) three to four times a day lost 70 percent more fat than low-dairy dieters.



Beans are one of the best sources of protein, fiber and iron. Some of the best beans to ear are: • Navy Beans • White Beans • Kidney Beans • Lima Beans

Oatmeal is loaded with soluble fiber, which helps reduce blood cholesterol by flushing those bad digestive acids out of your system. Skip the flavored oatmeals - you lose out on all the health benefits. If you must sweeten your oatmeal, do so by adding fruit.

olive oil

lean meats

Certain fats are good for you, and your body needs them. Olive oil is one of those “good fats.” It helps you burn fat and keeps your cholesterol down. One ounce of extra virgin olive oil contains about 85% of the daily value for monosaturated fat.

Search for lean meats - chicken (baked, broiled, grilled), fish and turkey - which are all high in protein. It is a good rule of thumb to consume at least one half-gram protein per pound of body weight each day. A chicken breast gets you well on your way, with about 22 grams of protein.

whole grains

interval training

Our body needs carbohydrates, despite what the fad diets tell you. Avoid processed carbohydrates such as white breads, bagles, pastas and white rice and look for whole grains that have not been processed and contain the fiber and minerals your body needs.

Interval training is defined as short, repeated bouts of intense exercise with minimal rest. You can burn major calories and get an all-over workout in less than 30 minutes. When you see people who are “cut,” chances ar they are partaking in interval training.
