Parade blooms with delight Rosemount marching band savors Tournament of Roses participation by Tad Johnson SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Members of the Rosemount High School marching band had heard about the “turn onto Colorado Avenue� prior to performing in the Tournament of Roses Parade on Jan. 1 in Pasadena, Calif. All that they had been told could not prepare them for what they saw after all 208 band members executed the technically challenging, 109-degree turn from Orange Grove Boulevard. “We were at the top of a slight hill that afforded a phenomenal view of the remaining 5 miles of parade route below us. Wow,� said Steve Olsen, band co-director. “We could see the other floats, bands and equestrian units – and thousands of people lining the parade route way off into the distance blending into the mountains. This was a sight that I will never forget, and made the experience quite surreal and dreamlike – was this really happening to me?� It was. “I let my mind wander to think about the parade itself and the people who came out and how much work it took to make such a parade happen,� said band mem-

Near the end of last summer, family members of those who died or were injured in the Aug. 1, 2007, Interstate 35W bridge collapse were invited to retrieve remnants of the structure. As Helen Hausmann walked around the pieces at a Twin Cities warehouse, she saw a broken section of twisted steel inside a container. “It was sitting there like no one wanted it,� said the wife of the late Peter J. Hausmann, 47. He died that day in August; he never returned to land after he dove into the Mississippi River in an attempt to save others. “This reminds me every day why is he not here,� Helen said last week during an interview with the family at St. Joseph Church. “I focus on that. I know he wanted to be with his family. It tells the whole story of why he is not here.� The piece was given to St. Joseph Church, where the Hausmanns are members, and has taken up temporary residence in the Rev. Paul Jarvis’ office. “The piece of the bridge looks to me

to be a twisted, torturous, truncated cross absent the corpus,� the church’s lead pastor said. On the wall of Jarvis’ office is a depiction of a crucified Jesus without the cross. “It’s not straight and unevenly painted,� said Justina Hausmann, Helen and Peter’s oldest daughter, of the bridge piece. “It’s twisted. I see it as a call to action.� It is the church’s intention to display the bridge fragment in a permanent way, so it can be a reminder of Peter’s life and an inspiration for people to live as he did. Jarvis said he doesn’t know exactly how it will be presented, but it will be with the section standing upright once again – a reflection of the cross. “It’s not just about Peter, it’s about all of us,� Jarvis said of the bridge piece. “I don’t want people to treat this like an object. I don’t want people to think that ‘Peter could do that, but I can’t do that.’ He rose to the occasion in many ways. When you are called upon in such See HAUSMANN, 7A

Residents review new school concept Project-based learning, advancement by ability are its focus by Jennifer Chick SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

In Farmington, educators, parents, students and community members came together to imagine a school designed from the ground up, one that could foster creativity, collaboration and customized learning. The result was a bluep a Public Schools. “We are trying to create an opportunity for kids around their needs and what they would re-imagine school to look like.� Last November, the district began the planning process of a new 100- to 120-student elementary school at the District Instructional Services Cen-

Meet the neighbors at the Farmington Expo by Jennifer Chick SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

When it’s too cold to be outside, head to the Farmington Community Expo to warm up, meet the neighbors and find out more about the community. The Community Expo will be from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, Jan. 25, in the Farmington High School Commons. Along with more than 125 business, nonprofit and community organization booths, the expo will feature a cooking demonstration, local dance team entertainment, refreshments served by the Tiger Snack Shack and youth sports information. “It’s a great meet-yourneighbor spot because so many people from Farmington are there,� said Barb Pierce, adults and

community programs coordinator for Farmington Community Education. Farmington Community Education and the city of Farmington sponsor the expo. Family-friendly and informative displays share space with displays from local agencies and organizations. No selling of merchandise will be allowed, but often, Pierce said, there will be giveaways and coupons available. If residents are looking to find out about unique opportunities offered in Farmington, the expo is the place to be. The expo was first organized 16 or 17 years ago, Pierce said, with steady growth through the years. The first year started with only 30 booths and about 300 people attendSee EXPO, 11A

Widening Dodd where teens died has been delayed for years Money cited as main reason other projects leapfrogged it by Laura Adelmann SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Officials have for years discussed but delayed improvements for a one-mile stretch of county road in Lakeville where a Dec. 4 crash killed 16-year-old Alyssa Ettl, while road projects in rural areas have leapfrogged development. Expanding the twolane undivided portion of Dodd Boulevard near Lakeville North High School was first listed in the Dakota County Capital Improvement Program in 2006, according to Dakota County Engineer Mark Krebsbach. He said it was programmed for 2009, with construction in 2010, but

never started because development and the rightof-way access and funding that goes with it was delayed. Although Dodd Boulevard is such a safety concern, improving the section where Ettl died on Dodd Boulevard has fallen behind other projects on the city’s and Dakota County’s priority list. It is now planned for 2018. “Wow, that’s not soon enough,� said Allyssa Carlos, a Lakeville North junior and friend of Ettl who said she and her parents have safety concerns about Dodd Boulevard near the high school. “When you get closer to school to turn into the

parking lot, it’s horrible in the winter,� Carlos said. “You don’t drive down that road. You slide down that road because it’s so slippery, and the road gets so narrow toward the end of the high school area.� From 185th Street (County Road 60) to the high school entrance at 195th Street, Dodd Boulevard narrows to an undivided two-way rural design; the stretch is bookended with deep ditches and numerous telephone poles lining both sides. The city and county last summer reconstructed Dodd Boulevard (County Road 9) as a four-lane divided highway from 183rd Street to Hayes Avenue near Lifetime Fitness and

added a roundabout at nearby Dodd Boulevard and Highview Avenue to ease significant congestion, a $6.3 million project, according to county and city documents. Southbound drivers on Dodd Boulevard toward the high school still encounter a curve, hill and pass several intersections before reaching the turn lane into the Lakeville North parking lot. “The road needs to be wider and add some turn lanes,â€? Carlos said. “And, like, adjust the speed limit. They need to think about we have four seasons in Minnesota ‌ and it doesn’t work for winter.â€? On that portion of Dodd Boulevard near Lakeville, the speed limit increases to 55 mph, the fastest speed allowed on that road in the area. Other nearby speed limits are 50 to 45 mph. Assistant Dakota County Engineer Brian Sorenson said the state sets speed limits on that road, and as it has remained unimproved, without shoulders, curb and gutter, it is considered a rural road design, so by statute its speed limit is automatically set at 55 mph. Former City Administrator and current Lakeville School Board Member Bob Erickson said the road is a concern and the speed limit “needs to be revisited.â€? The county asked the state for a speed study of the area late last year, a precursor to any change of it, according to Dakota County Traffic Engineer Kristi Sebastian. She said the county first requested a speed study on Oct. 2, 2013, from 185th Street to Cedar Avenue, and after Ettl’s accident revised the request to include Dodd Boulevard from 194th Street to Cedar Avenue on Dec. 31, 2013. Although still rural in design, the stretch is located just north of downtown and has townhome developments on one side of it; an open field is on the other. Dakota County Sheriff

Lakeville police shut down Dodd Boulevard for the Dec. 7 memorial service for Alyssa Ettl out of safety concerns for people gathering along the narrow, winding road that many believe needs to be improved. (Photo by Rick Orndorf) Dave Bellows, formerly a Lakeville Police Department lieutenant, said Dodd Boulevard is heavily traveled and “leaves very little tolerance for mistakes.� “It’s a road that needs to be upgraded,� Bellows said. Another Lakeville North High School student also died in a Dodd Boulevard car crash near Lakeville North High School in 2004. Christine Lawson was 17 when she was killed in a head-on collision on snow-covered Dodd Boulevard about 1/4 mile south of 185th Street. Police reported Lawson had alcohol in her system; Ettl, whose vehicle broadsided into oncoming traffic on the slush-covered road, did not, according to interim Lakeville Police Chief John Kornmann. Many inexperienced drivers likely use that portion of Dodd Boulevard, as about 600 Lakeville North students have purchased parking passes this year, according to Lakeville Area School District spokesperson Linda Swanson. Erickson and School Board Member Jim Skelly share significant concern

about the safety of Dodd Boulevard around Lakeville North and say the upgrades are needed. They plan to ask the School Board to pass a resolution to widen and improve Dodd Boulevard from 185th Street (County Road 60) to 195th Street sooner than 2018. “I don’t know if it’s the right thing to wait,� Skelly said. “If any time over the next four years there’s a crash on that road and that could be avoided, why wait?� Erickson also advised parents to reconsider allowing their children to drive on the road before it is upgraded. Lakeville Mayor Matt Little said everyone in City Hall agrees the road needs to be improved, but that it needs to be considered with all the roads in the city. “For right now, we have to focus on County Road 50, a priority we made in 2013. Certainly this is on the program, so from our opinion that does mean we’ve prioritized it.�

DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE January 9, 2014

DODD, from 2A as various law enforcement agencies respond to different crashes and reports may be missing information or overlooked. Kornmann said some minor accidents are never reported. Lakeville police crash data since 2009 through December 2013 shows 35 traffic accidents (including Ettl’s fatality) have occurred on Dodd Boulevard near the high school from 185th to 195th streets. According to the state, from 2003 to November 2013, 52 crashes have occurred on Dodd Boulevard between 185th Street and County Road 50, a stretch just under 2 miles long. Of the results available, the accidents resulted in one death (not including Ettl), 27 injuries or possible injuries, including one described as “incapacitating.� Contributing factors to some of the accidents near 190th Street, where police say Ettl’s vehicle slid on the slush-covered road and broadsided oncoming traffic, include weather/ slippery road, inattentive driving, speeding, failure to yield and deer crossing, according to Lakeville police reports. Her accident was the third in that area, near 190th Street about onehalf mile from Lakeville North, this year, according to Lakeville police records and the 12th since 2009. Assistant Dakota County Engineer Todd Howard said the county had plowed and salted Dodd Boulevard twice before Ettl’s 9:45 a.m. accident, and most recently went through at 8:16 a.m. that day.

Millions in improvements In the time that widening that portion of Dodd has been pushed back, other road projects in Lakeville have been forwarded. Lakeville City Administrator Steve Mielke said the improvement project near the high school has been waiting for development to help fund it. Development agreements show the city received about $184,000 to improve that portion of Dodd in 2001 and 2002 and Mielke said the city has the money in escrow collecting interest. He said the city is waiting for development across

the street to widen Dodd Boulevard near Lakeville North, an estimated $3.5 million project, assuming the city does not buy right of way (instead obtaining it as development occurs, according to city estimates). Dakota County is the only county in Minnesota that requires cities to pay 45 percent of the cost for improving county roads plus 100 percent of project costs that would improve city roads, such as underground infrastructure connections. Other cities in other counties typically pay about 15 percent of the cost of a county road project, according to Bob Egan of Lakeville, a former Dakota County construction and maintenance engineer. Carver County Engineer Lyndon Robjent said cities there typically pay 15 percent to 20 percent of the cost for roads depending on the total cost of the road. “Most counties in the metro are relatively similar, a few have nuances, but Dakota County is different,� he said. He said the 45 percent policy has created an enviable county road system unique to Dakota County. “Dakota County’s road system is excellent,� Robjent said. “The reason is because they had funding from the cities to help them with it and it shows.� Egan is opposed to the 45 percent share because it puts cities in debt for county road projects. Officials in growing cities complained years ago, Egan said, but officials from those cities like Burnsville and Eagan that had already built out while contributing the 45 percent said it was unfair to change the policy, so just like they did, younger-developing cities should have to pay the same amount. Egan also said cities are competing for limited county dollars to improve county roads. “Cities are also thinking if we don’t give Dako-

ta County 45 percent, then they won’t do that road,� Egan said. Since city finances pay almost half the project cost, they work closely with Dakota County to plan and prioritize projects in Capital Improvement Plans, with elected officials making the final approval decisions. Through that process, Lakeville and Dakota County are investing tax money into road projects with less traffic than Dodd Boulevard near Lakeville North and ahead of full development, including a major project slated to start this spring on five miles of Dodd Boulevard through Eureka Township. Dakota County plans show the ideal design for all of Dodd Boulevard throughout Lakeville is a four-lane divided road until it reaches County Road 70, Sorenson said. Past that County Road 70 intersection is Eureka Township where the 2000 U.S. Census showed population counts of 1,490. Sorenson said traffic counts do not warrant a four-lane road in Eureka. An estimated $9 million upgrade to the two-lane section of Dodd Boulevard in Eureka Township is in Dakota County’s 2012-2016 CIP and draft 2014-2018 CIP. The project includes grade changes and the addition of 8-foot wide shoulders on both sides of the road from just south of County Road 70 to County Road 2 in Scott County, where a roundabout is planned. The county and state both agree traffic in that area falls far below that on Dodd Boulevard near Lakeville North. Traffic counts on that southern section of Dodd Boulevard are categorized as “under capacity� now and in the future, according to the county’s 2030 Transportation Plan. A 2008-2009 MnDOT traffic volume map shows traffic counts nearly four

times as heavy on Dodd Boulevard near Lakeville North than south on Dodd Boulevard in Eureka Township. Construction is primarily funded by over $6 million in federal grants obtained by Scott and Dakota counties, and is expected to start this spring and be completed in 2015. Scott County is leading the realignment at the end of Dodd Boulevard in Eureka Township and will build the roundabout at County Road 2 and the Pillsbury Avenue frontage road. Dakota County’s federal grant only allows those funds to be used on rural connector roads; that money could not be used for the stretch by the high school, Sorenson said. Dakota County’s 2009 grant application also shows safety concerns on that southern portion of Dodd Boulevard. It indicates two fatal crashes and three incapacitating accidents occurred on that stretch from 200307. The road is narrow, without shoulders and is lined with trees and telephone poles in steep embankments and includes winding curves. Former Eureka Township Supervisor Jeff Otto supports the improvements to southern Dodd Boulevard, first publicly calling for them in 2007, when he cited concerns about a relative who lost both legs after his car was forced off the road, and the May 9, 2007, death of Courtney Rohrenbach, 16. Rohrenbach was a Lakeville South High School honor student who died after her car veered off Dodd Boulevard and crashed into a tree near 240th Street. Otto said neighbors on the road are concerned about safety and most support the improved design. “It’s being designed to new standards,� he said. “It’s designed to allow a more gentle, wider paved shoulder and a gentler slope off that paving. It’s all designed to make the road safer. I think most of us appreciate it.� Another Dakota County project occurring prior

to development has also been placed ahead of Dodd Boulevard road improvements near Lakeville North. A $595,249 roundabout was built last summer at 205th Street and Kenrick Avenue, a construction project that city officials admitted did not have the traffic volumes necessary to drive such a project. Lakeville Public Works Director Chris Petree addressed concerns the project may be considered premature at a Feb. 25, 2013, City Council work session. He said the roundabout should be built ahead of development because projects are planned there, including the south campus of Bethlehem Baptist Church, and the economy appeared to be improving. He said if the project did not go through in 2013, the city would lose the $75,000 from Walmart dedicated for the project, per its development contract. Petree said if the project waited, the city could still build the roundabout and put a special assessment against Walmart, but then it would have to legally demonstrate benefit for the assessment. Council Member Kerrin Swecker said she thought doing the work ahead of development would help reduce congestion and improve safety. Little said the project was also a smart investment because the city received a low bid for the work. Erickson cited safety concerns, wondering if improvements to southern portion of Dodd Boulevard would increase traffic on Dodd Boulevard near Lakeville North. He also has questioned how adding a roundabout at County Road 50 and 185th Street (County Road 60) would affect traffic flows down County Road 50, which leads to Dodd Boulevard. Some residents in that area have cited concerns that faster traffic flows will make entering County Road 50 from side streets even more difficult than it is now. A resident previously told the newspaper that accessing County Road 50 from a side street is like “playing chicken.� Little said the planned widening of County Road 50 from 185th Street to Ipava Avenue is a higher priority project, and the council worked with Dakota County officials to forward it after public outcry about high traffic volumes on the road. He said the city has to do roads in order so diverted traffic would not multiply traffic problems elsewhere in the city.

3A

“We prioritized County Road 50 because a lot of community members told us it was not safe,� Little said. “There’s a school up there, too. So, from our perspective we have to do something about that road before we can address Dodd, or else the situation’s not going to get better. We’re increasing safety risks if we were to do that (Dodd Boulevard improvement) and overload 50 even more.� Dakota County Commissioner Paul Krause noted that 35,000 cars per day are using the County Road 50/185th Street intersection and traffic is backed up a half-mile there in every direction. Krause called the portion of road by Lakeville North “kind of a bad area,� but also said there are many traffic problems to consider when making decisions. “The only way we can do it is if it makes sense,� he said. “If it helps traffic flow and if it’s not too (expensive); obviously if it’s over-priced, then I’m not interested.� Mielke said if the city does not wait for development to obtain right of way and dedication fees, it will greatly increase the city’s costs and reduce the amount of money it has to invest in other projects. Krebsbach said high priority needs are determined based on safety, highway capacity, operations, and future growth and development plans, with safety as “an overarching principle that applies to all (transportation) plan goals.� He said the county has to prioritize projects county-wide, and the need always outweighs available funding. Mielke agreed. “Generally, speaking, there’s only so much money to go around,� he said, adding that even if the project were pushed forward, it would probably be 2016 before it could make it through the process and the funding sources remain to be identified. Skelly urged for the Dodd Boulevard project near Lakeville North to be moved up, noting that although there are multiple priorities, “projects have to live in the real world, too. And the real world is there are students who died on this stretch of road.� Carlos agreed. “If you really do the math and think about all the taxes we pay that go toward government, I’m pretty sure they could pull something out and do something with that road right now,� Carlos said.

Opinion Voters will likely support DFL again in 2014 by Don Heinzman SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Suburban voters hold the key on what party will control the governorship and the Legislature in 2014. The Republican Party has an uphill climb among suburban voters because, by and large, suburban interests, namely the education package, have been positively received. The cornerstone of most communities is the private and public school systems. Educating their children is why many families move to the suburban areas. Last session, the Legislature, with the DFL Party in control, strengthened the public school system. Notably, the Legislature appropriated $134 million so that every parent would have the opportunity to send their child to all-day,

Sun Thisweek Columnist

Don Heinzman every-day kindergarten starting this fall, at no extra charge. While some school leaders may moan about the need for kindergarten classrooms, the public in general welcomes this expense. Furthermore, the Legislature appropriated $44 million for 10,000 pre-kindergarten scholarships. In addition, the Legislature set a schedule of providing more funds for special education, helping local districts subsidize this expensive but necessary education.

Finally, the Legislature provided $234 million more for K-12 education, and it paid back all of the money owed local school districts that the state withheld during the rough recessionary times. Suburban voters generally are pleased with the final local tax levies, which, in general, are flat or lower due in part to the new local government aid legislated last session. While suburban legislators had hoped for more reductions in the property taxes, local officials and policymakers used the additional aid for catch-up on all kinds of things, including some raises in pay for the staff. Fewer changes in the tax rate resonate positively with most voters in the suburbs. There’s also an ease in the suburban area because unemployment in Minnesota is well below the national average

and tax collections are up, making projections of a surplus possible. Even with the fuss over the Affordable Health Care Act and MNsure, it’s doubtful this will change the majority of minds in the suburbs. Time will tell how suburban voters will swing politically, but I’m betting on their voting for DFL control of the Legislature, re-election of Gov. Mark Dayton, re-election of Sen. Al Franken, election of Tom Emmer for 6th District Congress and re-election of 1st District U.S. Rep. Tim Walz, 2nd District U.S. Rep. John Kline, 3rd District U.S. Rep. Erik Paulsen and 8th District U.S. Rep. Rick Nolan. Don Heinzman is a columnist for ECM Publishers and a member of the ECM Editorial Board. Columns reflect the opinion of the author.

Lebanon Hills public input needs authority by Maryann Passe SPECIAL TO SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Twelve years ago, after a park development plan for Lebanon Hills Regional Park was stopped by the public, a 26-member task force including 14 user group representatives created the 2001 Lebanon Hills Master Plan. It was a compromise plan that set the groundwork for “the park’s future 10, 20 or even 50 years hence.” Within seven years, the Dakota County Board of Commissioners approved the 2008 Dakota County Park System Plan designating Lebanon Hills as the hub of Dakota County’s Greenway Trail System with seven trails converging at the park. This plan, developed by county staff and consultants, was approved by the county commissioners despite its conflict with the 2001 Master Plan. That plan designated only one connector trail that would be soft surface, hug the park pe-

Guest Columnist rimeter, and follow its hilly terrain. (Having any connector trail at all was a hard fought compromise, according to task force participants.) The County Board and Park Department officials claim the 2013 Development Plan is the result of public demand. However, having dug hard through the public record, it is a tepid demand at best. One of the cited surveys was taken at a public meeting July 10, 2012 (announced in these newspapers on July 3 – the height of summer vacation time). Of the approximately 50 people attending, 30 were unscientifically surveyed. These 30 responses are one of the user inputs sited by County Board Member Tom Egan that justifies this $31 million plan. Amazing, especially since the Greenway Hub plan had been approved by the commissioners four

years before in 2008. Since January 2013 the county has presented the Development Plan as a complete concept. Among its many development ideas, the connector trail is shown as two options snaking through the middle of the park. The public is then asked whether the trail should be built here or there. However, the pertinent questions have never been asked: • Do you want paved Greenway Trails through Lebanon Hills? • What are your needs for paved trails in the park (accessibility, commuting, etc.)? • What kind of park do you want Lebanon Hills to be: a bicycle hub, a minimally developed nature-based recreation park, or other? • What are your top priorities for Lebanon Hills? • Are you willing to pay higher taxes for annual maintenance for ongoing development in Lebanon Hills?

• Do you support a user fee for Lebanon Hills? Despite not being asked these questions, it appears the public is answering. Besides public comments running overwhelmingly opposed to the plan, there is a petition being circulated with already nearly 1,000 signatures demanding the 2013 Development Plan be suspended and a Park Board be established to restart the planning. Considering the county’s history of ignoring real public input (the 2001 Master Plan) and implementing its own vision for Lebanon Hills, it appears a necessity that the park has a Park Board. That is the only way to ensure the public really has input. To sign the petition, go to www.wildlebanonhills.org. Maryann Passe is a resident of Eagan and freelance writer.

Letters Thankful for school support To the editor: We are grateful for the approval of 2013 levy and are looking forward to a great 2014 in District 196 Schools. Last year, a group of parents and citizens took the opportunity to make a difference for our students by stepping up to lead a Vote Yes Campaign in support of the District 196 levy referendum question on the ballot this past Nov. 5. The mission of UNITE 196 is to connect the community and District 196 through timely and accurate communication, support District 196 to continue its legacy as a prudent steward of public resources, and build relationships with our elected representatives. Put simply, we want to empower the community to make a difference in our local schools. Even though the UNITE 196 team only started the campaign the week after Labor Day in September, we are thankful for how enthusiastically District 196 communities came together to support public education. More than 250 residents of all ages volunteered to do literature drops on the two Saturday mornings leading up to the election. As a result, voter turnout increased and the levy question was approved by a landslide. It

is clear that the people of District 196 want to maintain the high quality of academics, arts, and athletics that our schools provide our students. Thank you to all who helped your neighbors better understand the financial state of the district, inform others why the levy was needed, and encourage voters to go to the polls on Election Day. UNITE 196 will continue its grassroots efforts during the 2014 Minnesota legislative session. We will keep you informed as to what education-related legislation is being proposed at the State Capitol and provide simple ways you can advocate for our public schools. Our children’s future is our choice.

The DFL push to coronate Mike Obermueller as their repeat candidate against Republican John Kline denies the citizens of the 2nd District the opportunity to evaluate the viable challengers of either. While Kline is the six-term incumbent representing special interests in the House (and voted in a recent budget resolution to cut military pensions for those aged over 62 years because he already has his and met the age threshold), Obermueller is a career candidate who habitually loses to Republican candidates, which list includes former state Rep. Doug Wardlow, infamous in the do-nothing posture during the 2011 state government shutdown. Contrary to the fiscal discipline he espouses in railing against wasteful spending, Obermueller has spent millions of campaign dollars in unmeaningful moral victories that feature costly pizza delivery commercials complete with the luxury of a helicopter. Drowned out by the war chests of these recurring candidates are David Gerson, Thomas Craft and Paula Overby, who best signifies a movement to champion campaign finance reform and to challenge the perpetuation of the political plutocrats against the havenots.

She’s going to Jackson School principal, Eagan resident will be honored at King event professor of urban studies at the historically black Jackson State and Porter’s work-study mentor during college. Porter said her educational “passion� is for the at-risk and “really diverse group of kids� at the alternative school, whose current enrollment is about 160. “I know all the struggles I went through to get a high school diploma, to get a college degree,� said Porter, who is working on a doctorate in education leadership through Bethel University. “I try to help them navigate those systems so they can be successful.� During her visit to Mississippi, Porter will revisit the former Brinkley Junior High (now a middle school) for the parade lineup on Saturday, Jan. 18. The parade will begin at Freedom Corner (Dr. Martin Luther King Street and Medgar Evers Boulevard). “As grand marshal, you get to ride in the leading car,� Porter said. “There’s going to be a sign made for the car and everything. That’s a big deal for me.� Porter will be honored at the city’s King banquet at the Walter Payton Center (named for the NFL great and Jackson State alum) on the college campus. “I do stand on the shoulders of so many that went before me,� she said, citing her family and civil rights heroes such as Thurgood Marshall, King and Evers, whose 1963 assassination was in Jackson. “They had so many more struggles than what I had. Just for me to have a better life, access to a better education, better job opportunities, I appreciate. I would tell them thank you.�

Raised by parents without high school diplomas, Janice Porter was the first in her family to graduate and the first to attend college. She’s the first — and still only — AfricanAmerican head principal in Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School District 191. That caught the attention of officials in Jackson, Miss., where the former Janice Williams arrived in 1975 with a suitcase and a Pell Grant to study science at Jackson State University. Jackson doesn’t forget its “firsts.� As one of them, Porter was selected grand marshal and honoree of the city’s Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. celebration Jan. 17 to 20. Porter will also judge the student oratory contest at the annual event, which she described as the nation’s largest King commemoration. MLK Day is Jan. 20 this year. “I’m just humbled by this honor,� said Porter, 56, who has been principal of Burnsville Alternative High School since 2005. “I don’t see myself as even deserving. I just see myself as doing what I needed to do.� Porter, who lives in Eagan with her husband, Phillip, was the second of 10 children raised by Lethell and Elvalene Williams in the rural Progress community of Pike County, Miss. Her father, now 78, worked on an oyster boat out of Houma, La., and later for a steel mill in Amite, La. Her late mother drove school bus, cleaned homes and worked in restaurants. “They valued education,� Porter said. “They valued hard work, family, God and community. Their desire was that each one of their kids earn a high school diploma. They wanted each child to go to

college.� Porter got through college on her Pell Grant, work-study and a loan from her farmer grandparents. Her parents sent $10 or $20 when they could. She earned bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Jackson State in biology education. Porter did her student teaching at Brinkley Junior High in Jackson. Her father, with help from his boss at the steel mill, got a car loan so she could get to work. “Back then, it was hard for African-American people to get loans,� she said. “His boss, who was a white man, signed for him to get a loan.� Porter was a science teacher and specialist for five years at Cedar Riverside Community School, a charter school in Minneapolis, before being hired by District 191 in 1998. She taught life science at Metcalf Junior High and Earth science at Nicollet Junior High before being hired as Burnsville High School’s dean of students. In 2001 she became associate principal of the alternative high school and Burnsville Area Learning Center. “Her sojourn from the Progress Community in Pike County, to Jackson State, to Minnesota is laden with success after success as she has met and conquered challenges John Gessner can be reached along the way,� reads a at 952-846-2031 or email testimonial from Dr. Hill- john.gessner@ecm-inc.com. iard Lackey, an associate

Board passes final budget in 196 No cuts expected in 2014 The Rosemount-Apple Valley-Eagan School Board unanimously approved on Jan. 8 a $379.9 million budget for 201314. The final budget is unchanged from the preliminary one approved by the board in June, said Jeff Solomon, finance director for District 196. District 196 officials were able to balance the budget by borrowing from district reserves, which enabled them to avoid making cuts. The district had faced deep cuts between 2010

and 2012. Solomon credits the higher projections to increased state aid payments and the state’s recent attempts to repay deferred aid payments. Last session, the Legislature added $485 million to its E-12 education budget, which included a 1.5 percent increase to the basic per pupil formula in 2013-14. This translates to an additional $2.4 million for District 196 in 2013-14. In previous budget calculations, district officials predicted a 1 percent in-

crease in state aid. District 196’s general fund budget is projected at $293.1 million and is expected to incur a loss of $17.3 million. The district plans to absolve the deficit by borrowing from its general fund balance. After covering the deficit, the general fund balance will be $21.04 million, which is 6.78 percent of the general fund. Board policy requires a fund balance that is at least 5 percent of the general fund. —Jessica Harper

PARADE, from 1A

adrenaline-pumping and emotional experience that seemed to have no end,â&#x20AC;? Olsen said. Olsen said it was absolutely the finest trip he had ever experienced in his 33-year career as a high school band director. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am so incredibly proud of all 208 Rosemount High School marching band members,â&#x20AC;? Olsen said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They represented our school, community and state with classy excellence at all times during our weeklong trip to California.â&#x20AC;? In addition to the students, staff and co-directors Leon Sieve and Bo Hoover, Olsen said about 150 family and friends of the band went on a parallel tour. He estimated another 400-plus Rosemount supporters also made the trip. Rosemount participated in Bandfest, which Olsen said was an eclectic mix of music styles and cultures. The fest included bands from Hawaii, New Orleans, Panama and the

U.S. Marine Drum and Bugle Corps. The band also got to be tourists for some of the time. They visited Venice Beach, Hollywood, Santa Monica, Disneyland, and Universal Studios. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We wish to thank all of the many people who have supported us in achieving this wonderful endeavor,â&#x20AC;? Olsen said, referring to the fundraising effort that aimed to raise $2,000 per band member. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We will remember this experience fondly for the rest of our lives.â&#x20AC;? The band had many in-kind donors, including Bay & Bay Transportation, of Rosemount, which provided free round-trip shipping of all the bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s equipment. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This trip was so high profile and provided such an incredible level of affirmation and huge amounts of accolades for our school, band program and students,â&#x20AC;?

The parade committee saw the right stuff in the band, not only with its technical and musical excellence, but knowing its members would be dedicated enough to complete the 5.5-mile long route no matter what the conditions. It was a sunny and warm day, which meant that the parade would test the bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s conditioning. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It truly was an experience of a lifetime and one that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll never forget,â&#x20AC;? said band member Nicole Hutchinson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;However, also one Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be glad never to have to march through again. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The parade was very tiring, but it was fun to hear the people get excited to hear us play and get mad when we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was extremely hot so a lot of the time it was hard to focus on anything

but how tired I was, yet I knew I needed to push through.â&#x20AC;? Hutchinson said her section mates and parade spectators offered words of encouragement during the parade that helped keep her focused and motivated. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Once we were done with the parade it felt amazing,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My legs had gone numb from all the marching, and I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know how I made it to the buses to change but when I did I just sat and it felt so good.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;At the end of the parade route, all I could think about is how happy I was that we completed our goal,â&#x20AC;? Tangen said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and that I would get to change out of my smelly uniform in just a few minutes. It was a fun experience, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m happy that I will get to look back on it for the rest of my life.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;The throngs of people were always incredibly enthusiastic, appreciative, cheering, applauding, and affirming â&#x20AC;&#x201C; making for an

Feedback wanted on Sperry water tower What should happen to the 47-year-old Sperry water tower located on Towerview Road near Pilot Knob Road in Eagan? City officials are seeking public feedback between now and Feb. 4 in a brief online survey. The tower was built in 1967 and hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t held water since 2009, but the city makes about $150,000 a year in combined revenue from several cellphone company providers that have antennas on the 166foot tower near the current Unisys facility in Eagan (formerly Sperry/Univac). The City Council learned last May that the tower is getting increasingly expensive to maintain, requiring somewhere between $500,000 to $600,000 in structural repairs, painting and proper environmental disposal if old paint chips are removed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For some, the Sperry Tower is a landmark or geographical guidepost to Eagan,â&#x20AC;? Eagan Mayor Mike Maguire said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For others itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a rusting metal hulk. Still others may not realize how much of their cellphone coverage (from Verizon, T-Mobile, Sprint and other providers) comes from that higher ground in Eagan. So that is why we want to gather public opinion on next steps,â&#x20AC;? he added. Eagan residents and employees of Eagan businesses are asked to take a short survey on the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website at www.cityofeagan.com. The survey will be open to the public over the next four weeks and the City Council will review the results at its Feb. 11 work session.

MNsure info session The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) of Minnesota will present a free information session on MNsure from 7-8 p.m. Monday, Feb. 10, at Mary, Mother of the Church, 3333 Cliff Road, Burnsville. Participants will learn about health insurance options, value of coverage, options under MNsure, Medical Assistance expansion, changes to Minnesota Care and the benefits to people living with mental illnesses.

Sports Irish finish seventh at Maroon and Gold meet Monaghan takes second in diving by Mike Shaughnessy SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Rosemount finished seventh in a division loaded with familiar teams at the Maroon and Gold Invitational boys swimming meet Saturday at the University of Minnesota. Three of Rosemount’s South Suburban Conference rivals – Prior Lake (second), Lakeville South (fourth) and Lakeville North (fifth) – finished in the top five in the Maroon Division of one of the state’s strongest regularseason meets. The Gold Division, considered the

Maroon and Gold’s top flight, had one South Suburban team – Eagan, which finished sixth. Rochester Century won the Maroon Division with 368.5 points, 14.5 more than Prior Lake. Rosemount is building again after a seventh-place finish in the 2013 state Class AA meet. Irish senior Daniel Monaghan, the defending state Class AA diving champion, finished second in that event at the Maroon and Gold meet to Brandon Pearson of Breck/Blake. Pearson had 241.35 points; Monaghan had 214.65. Frank Haney, a junior, was third for Rosemount

Notebook: Clash win moves AV up in wrestling rankings by Mike Shaughnessy SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Apple Valley’s Dayton Racer won a decision at 152 pounds to give Apple Valley a 30-27 victory over Oak Park River Forest at the Clash Duals national high school wrestling tournament last weekend in Rochester. The Eagles won all six of their matches in the tournament and won the Clash for the fifth time. Their victory over Oak Park River Forest also allowed them to jump past the Illinois school into second place in the InterMat.com national rankings. Blair Academy of New Jersey is the nation’s No. 1-ranked team. Apple Valley opened its final match at the Clash with Mark Hall’s victory by fall at 160 pounds. Gable Steveson (182), Bobby Steveson (195) and Paul Cheney (220) won by decision and Lord Josh Hyeamang (285) pinned his opponent as the Eagles built a 21-6 lead. Oak Park River Forest won the next four matches before the Eagles’ Maolu Woiwor stopped the run with a pin at 132. Oak Park River Forest earned a major decision at 138 and a decision at 145, tying the match 2727 and setting the stage for Racer’s 4-2 victory

in the 100-yard backstroke in 58.68 seconds. He also was fourth in the 50 freestyle in 22.85. Noah Peterson had top-10 finishes in the 500 freestyle (fifth, 5 minutes, 8.38 seconds) and 200 freestyle (10th, 1:54.06). Sam Kendall was eighth in the 100 freestyle in 51.37. Rosemount had a third place in the 200 freestyle relay with Kendall, Derek Schnoor, Cody Sedbrook and Peterson finishing in 1:33.57. Haney, Kendall, Ian Gardiner and Schnoor were fifth in the 200 medley relay in 1:44.18. The Irish were 4-0 in South Suburban Conference dual meets after defeating Apple Valley 126-

60 on Jan. 3. Peterson, Haney and Kendall each won two individual events. Rosemount had the firstplace teams in all three relays and Monaghan was the diving winner. The victory over Apple Valley kept the Irish in a first-place tie with Eagan in the South Suburban. Both teams are 4-0. They are scheduled to meet Jan. 28 at Dakota Hills Middle School in Eagan.

Irish notes • Senior Hannah Grim is the Rosemount girls basketball team’s career scoring leader after scoring 38 points in a 67-50 loss at Eastview on Tuesday night. She has 1,436

points for her career, surpassing Amber Connor, who scored 1,401 points from 2001-06. Grim’s 38 points against Eastview also is a Rosemount single-game record. Rosemount is 4-6 overall and 1-3 in the South Suburban Conference going into Friday’s home game against Eagan. • The boys basketball team improved to 9-3 overall and 3-2 in the South Suburban after defeating Eastview 50-47 on Tuesday. Senior guard Garrett Goetz had 17 points against an Eastview team coached by his father Paul. Logan Halvorson added 11 points. Paul Goetz, who’s in his

first year as the Eastview boys coach, was Rosemount’s girls basketball coach for four seasons in the 1990s before starting the girls basketball program at Eastview. He stepped down as Eastview girls head coach after the 2010-11 season so he could watch his son play varsity basketball for Rosemount. • Eighth-grader Josie Schlie scored 37.275 in the all-around as the Rosemount gymnastics team defeated Eastview 144.425-135.15. The Irish are ranked sixth in Class AA. Email Mike Shaughnessy at mike.shaughnessy@ecminc.com.

Top-ranked Eastview girls are well traveled Nine of first 10 games have been on the road by Mike Shaughnessy SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

The top-ranked teams in Class 4A boys and girls basketball teams were in the same gym Friday, which is not something that happens often in Minnesota high school basketball. But if it’s all the same to Eastview girls coach Melissa Guebert, she hopes the historical significance is lost on her players. The No. 1-ranked Lightning girls stayed undefeated with an 81-48 victory at Apple Valley on Friday night in the first game of a South Suburban Conference girls-boys doubleheader. In the second game the top-ranked Apple Valley boys defeated their counterparts from Eastview 77-49. Eastview’s girls (100) have been ranked first in the state for a couple of weeks, but “we never, ever bring that up,” Guebert said. “I know (the players) are aware of it, but we never talk about it.” The Lightning hasn’t had an easy path to 100. Eastview has defeated strong teams such as

Hopkins, St. Paul Central, Chaska, Park of Cottage Grove, Lakeville North and Park Center, and generally has had to do it without homecourt advantage. Nine of the team’s first 10 games were on the road. Eastview will play 13 of its first 16 away from home before the schedule flips and gives the team seven of the last 10 at home. Although the coaches would prefer that the players not focus on the state rankings, other teams will take note of Eastview’s No. 1 status and it’s clear the Lightning can’t afford to let down its guard. There was no reason to question Eastview’s intensity against Apple Valley in its first game since the holiday tournament. The Lightning scored 46 points in the first half and took a 19-point lead. Junior guard Madison Guebert and senior forward Kari Opatz scored 26 points each in the Apple Valley game. Sophomore guard Erika Schlosser had 10 points, junior forward Hana Metoxen scored six. Senior forward Emee Udo had five points. Guard Lyndsey Robson, a ninth-grader, led Apple Valley with 18 points.

Depth has Tiger swimmers feeling optimistic Farmington beats Northfield in first Missota dual by Mike Shaughnessy SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Farmington’s boys swimmers and divers have a goal similar to all other Tigers teams this year: win the Missota Conference in their last attempt. The Tigers defeated Northfield 93-91 on Jan. 2 in their first Missota dual meet of the season. Farmington, the defending Missota champion, also has to go through Shakopee, Red Wing and Chaska/ Chanhassen to repeat. Depth is one reason the Tigers feel good about their chances. They have about 50 athletes on the team, a high number for boys swimming and diving. “We have a deep team this year, and most of those kids are underclassmen, which should help us when we go to the South Suburban Conference next year,” Farmington coach Ryan Hamen said. The Tigers have tested

themselves recently in two invitationals that drew strong fields. They finished fifth of 10 teams in the Apple Valley Invite on Dec. 28, then were eighth of 16 teams in the Bronze Division at the Maroon and Gold Invitational on Saturday at the University of Minnesota. “We would have liked to finish higher (at the Maroon and Gold meet), but we had a lot of swims that were close to personal-best times,” Hamen said. “One of our best swims was by Ben Gunderson, a ninthgrader who’s only in his second year on our team. He broke one minute in the backstroke.” Gunderson finished sixth in 59.83 seconds. All the other swimmers who finished in the top 10 in that event were juniors or seniors. Farmington had two fourth-place finishes at the Maroon and Gold meet. Eric Schimmel, Brandon Dion, Daniel Berg and Jonathan Kingsbury swam to fourth in the 200-yard freestyle relay in 1 minute, 34.70 seconds. Jonathan Bovee scored 195.70

points in diving to place fourth. Austin Kueck was fifth in the 200 individual medley. Kueck, a ninth-grader, is another of the Tigers’ promising younger swimmers. The Tigers’ strong performance in a freestyle relay shouldn’t be a surprise because Hamen said they have several good sprinters. Schimmel, Dion and Garrett Haugen all are around 52 or 53 seconds in the 100 freestyle, the coach said. Farmington is scheduled to swim at Red Wing at 6 p.m. Thursday. The Tigers will play host to South St. Paul in a nonconference dual meet on Tuesday before preparing to hold the Section 1AA True Team meet on Jan. 18. The Tigers are defending section True Team champions.

Paynesville 53-21 in pool matches but lost to Lakeville North 33-31. That sent the Tigers to the third-place match where they beat Milaca 47-21. Milaca is ranked 10th in Class 2A. Four Farmington wrestlers went undefeated for the day. Victor Gliva was 3-0 with two pins and a technical fall. Taylor Venz was 4-0 with three technical falls. Brian Caravantes and Brayden Chapman both went 3-0. • The girls basketball team dropped to 5-6 after losing to Northfield 41-35 on Tuesday. Abby Gallus led the Tigers with 11 points, while Sofia Chadwick and Jordan Homeier added six points each. • Farmington’s boys basketball team is 10-3 after losing 94-80 at Chaska in a Missota Conference game Tuesday night.

SCHOOL, from 1A instead by abilities and interests. Pierce and Caleb Drexler Booth, Farmingtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s teaching and learning coordinator, presented the design to community members at two forums this week. Approximately 30 community members, business owners and students attended the Tuesday night session at Boeckman Middle School. The plan will be presented to the Farmington School Board at its meeting Monday, Jan. 13, with the hope to have support from the board by the end of January. After the plan is presented Jan. 13, a new website will be available for community members and parents to review the entire plan. More information is at www.farmington. k12.mn.us. The design resulted from an intense brainstorm and creation process with 15 design team members made up of community members, district parents and teachers. The district also talked to students from Riverview Elementary and Boeckman Middle School. After students started to think outside of the traditional school system, they pinpointed several key areas they would like

EXPO, from 1A ing. Last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attendance was approximately 2,500 residents with 127 booths. Pierce said the growth has quickly filled the high school commons area, making a bustling, lively area with much to see and do in the three hours it runs. It was first started as a way for the school district to recognize and give back

to see in a re-imagined school: student-directed projects, the same teachers over several years, handson and engaging learning, grade levels and grading systems eliminated, learning using technology and authentic experiences, and giving students a voice and choice in their projects, activities and learning spaces. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We know the traditional system is good for certain students, but what we are talking about is just another option,â&#x20AC;? Pierce said. Using that student input, the design team created a mission for the school with five areas of focus. The first would focus on creating and nurturing a community where all students are free to act using their talents, passions and creativity. It would aim to foster strong relationships committed to the success of all with a one-room schoolhouse-type support system, leadership groups, relationships that extend beyond the walls of the school and global connections. The school desires to create a place to inspire continuous learning and growth. Personalized and project-based learning would be the focus with multiple measures of student growth not confined

to the businesses, community organizations and nonprofits that support the school district activities throughout the year. Expo booths are open only to businesses, nonprofits and organizations that reside within the districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s boundaries. Registration is open until one week before the expo. Booth space is available for $40 or $50, depending on electricity needs.

to the traditional gradebased system. Learning would take place in a variety of spaces, inside, outside and virtual spaces. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We know whatever the space looks like, it has to reflect our kids,â&#x20AC;? Drexler Booth said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It needs to be developed and created collaboratively and has to have a student-centered aesthetic to it.â&#x20AC;? Project-based learning would have students working together based on interests and abilities. Teachers would assist in an adviser role, with flexibility, creativity and adaptability built into the school structure. If the board approves the plan by the end of January, the district would begin hiring teachers for the new school with student registrations due by April 1. Several parents at the meeting thought the timeline seemed too ambitious to be ready by next fall, but they liked the idea of students working at their own pace. Pierce and Drexler Booth acknowledged that the plan is a fluid one. They will continue to take input from parents and community members as they build this new school based on a shift away from the traditional school model to educate students in a new way.

For more information, call the Community Education office at 651-460-3200. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a fun time to learn about whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in Farmington and why this is a great community,â&#x20AC;? Pierce said.

The Lakeville Area Arts Center has hit upon a winning combo with its popular Coffee Concerts series. For many, the concerts offer an irresistible pairing: classical music and caffeination. Started in 2007, the series returns this year beginning Sunday, Jan. 12, with a performance by Minnesota Opera resident artists Victoria Vargas and John Robert Lindsey. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Vicki and I have decided to put together a program drawing primarily from the art song repertoire,â&#x20AC;? said Lindsey, a tenor who was recently featured in the PBS broadcast of the Minnesota Operaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Silent Nightâ&#x20AC;? production. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be singing in French, English, German, Italian and Spanish throughout the course of the recital, and in a variety of styles ranging from romantic classical singing to modern cabaret songs. â&#x20AC;Ś There is, of course, a bit of big opera on the program as well.â&#x20AC;? As with all the concerts, there will be complimentary coffee and refreshments in the seriesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; informal cabaret setting, with the musicians providing some background and insights on the pieces theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve chosen to perform. The series was founded by the husband-wife duo of oboist Carrie Vecchione and bassist Rolf Erdahl, who each year perform one concert in the series in collaboration with other performers. The theme of this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s concerts is â&#x20AC;&#x153;Straight from the Heart.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our goal is to share the power, range, intimacy, and sheer joy of chamber music in an engaging, educational, inviting way,â&#x20AC;? Erdahl said. Following the operaoriented kickoff to the series Jan. 12, the concerts continue Feb. 9 with a performance by the Grammywinning Chestnut Brass Company; the Bakken Trio, formed from Minnesota Orchestra musicians, takes the arts center stage April 27, and the series finale on May 18 will see the Vecchione/Erdahl Duo joined by soprano Maria Jette and pianist Lee Blaske. All the performances are on Sundays at 2 p.m. at the arts center located at 20965
