Burnsville resident Jackie Butler came to Minnesota in July 2012 when her company transferred her from Baltimore. Butler and her 9-year-old daughter had settled in until Butler’s contract ended in November, and she was laid off without any

income. For the first time in Butler’s life, she was unemployed and unable to provide for her daughter. “I was down and embarrassed. I never thought I would find myself there,� she said. “I have adult children, and as a nurse, I was able to be a great provider to them.� Uncertain how to find or ask for help, Butler had

an unexpected call from “an absolute angel.� Nikki Johnson, a family support worker at Orchard Lake Elementary School in Lakeville, heard about Butler’s unemployment from her daughter. Johnson called Butler and offered to connect her with a Lakeville food shelf and See FOOD, 8A

Make way for chickens Farmington passes ordinance to allow by Theresa Malloy SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

After two years of debate, Farmington residents in urban areas can now raise chickens in their own backyards under an ordinance passed at the City Council meeting March 18. The initial draft of the ordinance allowed for a maximum of six chickens, but Council Member Christy Jo Fogarty and Mayor Todd Larson thought it was better to start out with three chickens, citing community concern. Fogarty said she had almost a dozen negative calls about the ordinance. “I am trying to balance what I heard,� she said. “I don’t care for it,� Larson said, “but I do understand the need the community is bringing forward. I am willing to try it for a year.� Not all supporters were squawking with excitement about the change. “I am disappointed, but at least it’s something� said Annabelle Randow, 15. Annabelle and her brother, Stefan Randow, 12, were two of a handful of Farmington youths who supported

the ordinance. “The original ordinance we drafted for the Planning Commission said five chickens,� Stefan said. “They said we can do six and were confident it was going to pass.� Lerew Kass, 14, another supporter, said he was surprised to hear about complaints. Besides one negative email sent to the city, he said he never heard from any dissenters. At the March 12 public hearing, only supporters showed up, said Tony Wippler, assistant city planner. The ordinance passed unanimously with the three-chickens limit, but council members Doug Bonar and Jason Bartholomay thought six chickens was an OK number. Bartholomay said he did not think three chickens was enough for people who wanted to get eggs. Bonar, who worked on the Planning Commission in past years reviewing the ordinance, said, “I’m confident that this has been thoroughly vetted in the last two years.� He agreed to three chickens “in the interest See CHICKENS, 7A

‘Resurrection’ colors the light After a lifetime of painting and 25 years as an art teacher, Rosemount resident Rita Corrigan nearly stopped creating altogether after the unexpected death of her sister in November 2010 to lung cancer and then the death of her mother in February 2011. “Every May for over 10 years I had greatly anticipated and attended an art retreat through (the Minneapolis College of Art and Design) in Grand

Marais,� she said. “In 2011, I really had no desire to go because I was afraid these two deaths would influence my work and I just wanted to forget. I tried to go back to familiar images and work on images of the rocks and Lake Superior, but could not get into the work.� A conversation with a friend during the retreat changed all of that. The evening talk turned to Rita speaking about her mother and sister. “The next morning we had breakfast together and (my friend) wanted to tell

me something, but was unsure how to say it,� Rita said. “She told me that the night when I had spoken about my mom and sister, there was a bright light behind me and that a figure was laughing and smiling. She was sure that it was my sister or mom.� Abandoning her previous creative process, Rita said she put away her photographs and “started applying color randomly and intuitively to the paper with my bare hands, inspired by the light my See ARTIST, 7A

Farmington Police Chief Brian Lindquist presented two awards to outstanding community members who saved people’s lives at the City Council meeting March 18. The Citizen Valor

Award went to Jason Rose. On Nov. 11, 2012, Rose was on his way to work when he saw a house on fire at approximately 7:59 a.m. He went to the residence and knocked on the door to see if anyone was in the house. Rose could see the garage exposed in the flames and noticed two cars. Thinking this was strange, he kicked down the front door and found the renter who was unaware of the fire.

“It is my opinion that if Mr. Rose was not there, we would have had a different outcome,� Lindquist said. The renter who was saved by Rose thanked him at the meeting. Farmington Police Officer Travis Sundvall and his K-9 partner Bosco received the Life Saving Award. At 2 a.m. one morning, police were tracking a suicidal individual with his phone to River Park in Lakeville.

Police dispatched for the nearest K-9 to search the park. Sundvall and Bosco arrived at the park, tracking the scent from the car to the individual in life-saving time. “Without the K-9 and his officer, this would have ended differently,� Lindquist said.

When the third-grade girls in Brownie Troop 25277 heard about children in Dakota County child services who had to leave an unsafe home, they wanted to help. The Farmington-based troop collected 218 new stuffed animals for child services, and not only did the troop double its goal, it collected enough stuffed animals for the county to use for a year. Troop leader Gretchen Monson said the project showed the girls the impact they can have. “I believe that it really hit home how much they can help when they work together,� Monson said. The girls decided to get their school, Meadowview Elementary, involved with the project. At a break, a few girls drafted

Bands to rock Leprechaun Days Music lineup announced for Rosemount’s summer festival by Tad Johnson SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Music from yesterday and today will rock the Central Park Amphitheater stage during Rosemount Leprechaun Days this summer. The band lineup was announced this month after it was set by Rosemount resident Steve Ball, who has organized the entertainment schedule for the past several years. The lineup includes Rocket Club, a country rock band fronted by Chris Hawkey, co-host of the KFAN-radio Power Trip morning show; Arch Allies, a critically acclaimed Journey, Styx and REO Speedwagon tribute band; and Sweet Siren, which covers top 40 hits of today. “For those who like to have fun, there’s a little bit of something for all of them in this year’s music lineup,� Ball said. Sweet Siren will play from 7-11 p.m. Saturday, July 27, when fireworks will blast off over Central Park before the second half of the set. The band covers music from the likes of current artists Lady Gaga, Katy Perry and Adele, in addition to ’80s hits from Joan Jett, Night Ranger, .38 Special and Prince. Lead singer Caitlin McSweeney of Plymouth was a soprano section leader of the St. Cloud State University choir before turning to the bright lights of concert

stages. In addition to having a strong and soulful voice, she has 10 years of competitive dance experience, which leads to an energetic stage show. When McSweeney isn’t on the mic, guitarist Jeff Schreiner sings lead vocals. He, along with keyboardist Adam Daniel, have years of performance and studio recording experience. Daniel is a music performance graduate from Augsburg College, and bass player Doug Field started playing upright bass when he was 10, later translating his skills to the bass guitar for jazz bands in high school and college. Drummer Bruce Streich is originally from California, and has traveled in many states touring with several bands. More about Sweet Siren is at www.sweetsirenband. com. One could not have lived through the ’70s or ’80s without having grooved to the hits of Journey, Styx and REO Speedwagon. Arch Allies, which will play from 7-11 p.m. Friday, July 26, brings the infectious music of these three supergroups to the stage with stunning vocal and instrumental accuracy. In alternate takes, lead singer Gabe Jacobs morphs into Steve Perry, Dennis DeYoung and Kevin Cronin (REO). “You almost feel like a rock star,� bass guitarist Tom Dario told the White Bear Lake-based Quad Community Press newspaper. “We’re getting more people, and a variety of different age groups. I got my kids going now who are in their mid-20s to early 30s and they saw me back when

we were really nothing, and now we’ve gone up the ladder.� As one would expect, Arch Allies hits many of the musical highlights of each band in concert, such as Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believing,� REO Speedwagon’s “Can’t Fight This Feeling� and Styx’s “Come Sail Away.� More about Arch Allies is at www.archallies.com. Rocket Club will play from 6-10 p.m. Thursday, July 25, as the rock gets a little bit country. Founded in 2008, the band hit a high note with “North Country,� which spent nine weeks on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart. The band has toured extensively throughout the Midwest attracting quite a following. “You don’t have to be from the South to be from the country,� Hawkey said in the band’s bio. “We’ve got our own dirt roads, our own backwoods bars and Chris Hawkey, lead singer of the country rock band Rocket Club, will perform during cornfields. Country music Rosemount Leprechaun Days on Thursday, July 25. (Photo submitted) is a state of mind that transcends geography.� Rocket Club has released three studio albums and is planning to release another by the end of 2013. That recording, dubbed “Lucky 13,� will be composed of one song per month, including two in December, that will be released as singles. More about Rocket Club is at www.rocketclub. info. “I’m excited about this year’s lineup of bands,� Ball said. “It’s gonna be fun.� Email Tad Johnson at Twin Cities band Sweet Siren will play during Rosemount Leprechaun Days on tad.johnson@ecm-inc.com.

Opinion A book about trusting teachers draws praise from educators, activists by Joe Nathan SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Should we “trust teachers” much more than we do now? A recently published, intriguing, important book urges, “Yes.” The book “Trusting Teachers with School Success” is important in part because it has been endorsed by a variety of educators and education activists, many of whom strongly disagree with each other about other issues such as testing, charter public schools and virtual schools. Why did a variety of people recommend the book? First, because the authors ask, “What if trusting teachers, and not controlling them, is the key to school success?” The authors believe that teachers should have the option to organize as doctors and attorneys sometimes do. This puts teachers truly in charge. The book offers 11 examples from seven states, from Connecticut to California along with Minnesota and Wisconsin. Some attorneys and physicians organize themselves into partnerships. They

Sun Thisweek Columnist

Joe Nathan decide how their clinics or law firms will operate (including associates’ pay and how they will be evaluated). They hire (and can fire) people to help with the “business side” of operations. I’ve visited some schools cited in the book, including the Minnesota New Country School in Henderson, Minn. and Avalon, in St. Paul. Both schools attract a variety of students. Both help some students who had not succeeded in traditional schools graduate and go on to some form of two- or four-year higher education. Both use an array of methods, not just standardized tests, to measure and report student progress. Avalon, New Country and the nine other schools, both district and charter, described in the book allow teachers to determine the curriculum, budget alloca-

tions, assessment methods, staff evaluation, and in some cases pay and working conditions. This is real teacher “empowerment.” The authors recommend that families be allowed to choose these schools, and say that this approach won’t always work. For example, the Milwaukee Federation of Teachers and Milwaukee District helped create more than one dozen schools on this model. Some thrived, others did not. A recent MetLife Foundation survey of teachers around the country found growing percentages of teachers are dissatisfied with their jobs. While education journalist and activist Andy Rotherham pointed out that over the last 25 years, MetLife has used different questions to compare teachers’ attitudes, survey officials stress that answers to identical questions show dissatisfaction is growing. Empowering educators can be one important way to serve students and enrich teachers’ lives. The book’s authors include Amy Junge, formerly a public school teacher; Kim Farris-Berg, an education policy researcher; and Edward Dirkswager, a retired health care admin-

istrator. People who’ve endorsed the book include union leaders, including Dennis Van Roekel, president of the National Education Association; Lynn Nordgren, president of the Minneapolis Federation of Teachers; Adam Urbanski, president of the Rochester, N.Y., Federation of Teachers; Stanford professor Linda Darling-Hammond and educator Deborah Meier, all of whom are skeptical about the charter idea. Tom Vander Ark, formerly of the Gates Foundation, Mike Petrelli of the Fordham Institute and Dee Thomas, all of whom support the charter idea, also praised the book. As America searches for solutions, it’s great to find strategies supported by thoughtful people who often disagree. That makes “Trusting Teachers with School Success” a book with important, intriguing ideas. Joe Nathan, formerly a public school teacher and administrator, directs the Center for School Change.  Reactions welcome, joe@centerforschoolchange.org. Columns reflect the opinion of the author.

Letters Military tuition a casualty of sequester To the editor: We hear a lot about White House tours being cancelled due to sequestration budget cuts. What a sad decision. In addition to this move we should be concerned that the Air Force, Coast Guard, Army and Marines have suspended their Tuition Assistance programs, according to the Defense Department. It is sad that the decision to immediately end this program which so affects those who protect and fight for us in Afghanistan, Iraq and elsewhere around the world. About 201,000 soldiers are receiving tuition assistance from the Army this year totaling about $373 million. We need to restore the program immediately. We have a moral obligation to follow through with our education promises to our military. One of the best ways to support our military is for them to educate themselves so that they can move successfully into the civilian workforce when their service is over and get on with the rest of their lives as productive members of society. Please contact your senators, representatives and leaders to request their support in returning the promised education to our military. In 2012 over 1,600 Minnesota Red Bulls relied on the tuition assistance. Also, please write directly to Department of Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel. Thank you for your support. BILL TSCHOHL

Put the fear factor aside To the editor: Minnesota Chamber of Commerce President David Olson (“Tell the governor he can’t be projobs and anti-business”) in the March 1 edition used the fear factor in his opinion piece, quoting The Wall Street Journal and Fox News, to support his argument that the governor’s tax proposal will lead Minnesota to become a barren wasteland with business and residents fleeing the state at the prospect of paying an additional tax on services. Mr. Olson neglects to note the overall decrease in the sales tax rate and the decrease in corporate tax rate. Although the chamber portrays itself as representing all businesses, its focus seems mostly on benefits for the largest businesses. Think about it – which small business (the hardware store, the local dry cleaners, the law office and tax accountant, even the grocery chains) can up and move out of state when their customers are here, their employees are here, the owners live here? Which residents are really going to move to Florida when their grandchildren and families remain in Minnesota? While we may grumble and complain, the vast majority are going to stay put. We will figure out a way to make it work and still live in the state we call home, the one that provides the quality of life we have come to expect. A state that works. We have long prided ourselves on good government, clean air, wonderful parks, natural

beauty, good restaurants and great theater. I want to live where those essential services and amenities thrive. In order to have that, we need a stable government with stable revenue. When the tax code was last revised, twothirds of the tax revenue came from tax on production. We no longer make as much “stuff ” so the revenue stream changes to services. This is a complicated issue but moving a business has to be more expensive than any sales tax that may be imposed so let’s all take a deep breath and put the fear factor aside while we try to address the serious problems facing the state and the economy, all of us – together.

Uncritical thinking To the editor: State Sen. Greg Clausen (DFL-Apple Valley, Rosemount) deserves respect for his long career as a levelheaded high school principal. Unfortunately there is something about joining the DFL caucus that disrupts critical thinking skills in favor of simplistic notions like pouring more money into public schools in the blind hopes of improving them. Certainly there are “studies” supporting the idea (“Clausen proposes all-day kindergarten bill,” Jan. 18) and it seems common sense that all-day kindergarten would teach kids more than half day kindergarten would. But like most education studies, they prove what the academics who conduct them believe, without considering the “variables” that might otherwise explain the result. In this case, while it might be true that all-day kindergarten helps every kid, isn’t it equally likely that parents, in their wisdom, realize their child may not be ready for all day at school and that other kids, the “faster starting” kids, carry their natural advantage into first grade? Is it possible that the parents who send kids to all-day kindergarten care more about education and these “involved parents” are the critical factor that education studies say they are? In short, what appears to be a “common sense” idea is just another excuse to spend more money. If it really works, then find the money elsewhere in the education bud-

get from some program that does not work (and there are many). Hopes that Clausen could teach critical thinking to the big-spending DFL appear to have worked in the wrong direction. JERRY EWING Apple Valley

Job well done To the editor: In late February the Minnesota Management and Budget Office released the financial results for the current and the next biennium. With increased revenues and decreased spending the current biennium ended up with a $2.8 billion surplus. This surplus enabled replenishment of the state’s reserve and cash flow funds as well as reduction of the school shift. The Minnesota Management and Budget Office was also able to reduce the projected $1.1 billion deficit for the next biennium. This was the “real” reason for the recently announced reduction of the projected budget to $627 million. A hearty congratulations for a job well done is in order for the Republican-led Legislature of 2011-2012. At the start of that legislative session they were faced with a $5 billion to $6 billion deficit. With good fiscal policy and without raising taxes they were able to turn that deficit around to a surplus. And the sky did not fall. They also tried to speed the school shift payback (ref. S.F. 0209), but this and related House bill were vetoed by Gov. Mark Dayton. It will be interesting to see if the current Democratic-led Legislature is

able to match this performance or if additional taxes will be necessary to avoid another round of deficit spending. The challenge is there and the voters are watching. AL KRANZ Burnsville

Benning will serve well To the editor: I am a Burnsville resident and a customer of Dakota Electric utility. I am writing on behalf of Bill Benning, candidate for election to the Dakota Electric Board of Directors. I have known Mr. Benning for many years. He is honest, hard-working and highly intelligent. He wants to keep the utility’s rates down and make it accountable to its customers. He will make an excellent member of the board. The ballots were mailed March 19 so customers should receive them March 20 and 21. Please vote for Bill Benning, you can vote online or mail the ballot in. KEVIN GUST Burnsville

Correction Last week’s story about the history of the Dakota County Tribune incorrectly described the Clay succession in ownership. Ham Clay Jr. operated the Tribune until a succession plan handed it off to brothers, Roger and Eugene. The Clay brothers ran the newspaper until Roger’s sons, Dan and Joe, took the reins. The newspaper regrets the errors.

Support ‘no-excuse’ absentee voting legislation, Not ‘early voting by Kent Kaiser SPECIAL TO SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Currently, Minnesota law allows absentee voting supposedly only for people who claim one of the following reasons for needing an absentee ballot: • Absence from their precinct on Election Day • Illness or disability • Service as an election judge in another precinct on Election Day • Religious discipline or religious holiday or observance • Eligible emergency declared by the governor or quarantine declared by the federal or state government. The law to require an excuse to obtain an absentee ballot is unforceable and, therefore, unenforced. No one actually checks to see whether voters meet these eligibility criteria — it would be virtually impossible. Nevertheless, conscientious citizens have not necessarily recognized this fact, and, consequently, the current law probably has deterred some people from voting. Recently, state Rep. Steve Simon, DFL-St. Louis Park, introduced legislation (House File 193) that would remove the requirement to declare one of these excuses to obtain an absentee ballot. This legislation should be passed. There are four pillars of a strong election system: Access, accuracy, privacy, and integrity. Simon’s bill would

Guest Columnist

Kent Kaiser strengthen that first pillar while leaving the other pillars unharmed. Simon’s bill would be an excellent reform of our election system. Such is not the case with some other election changes being suggested in the Legislature this year. Many readers have probably heard talk of “early voting” proposals that would allow people for any reason to cast their votes in the weeks prior to Election Day and have their votes counted immediately. But readers should beware: Such schemes have major flaws compared to our current absentee voting system. • For one, early voting systems do not allow voters to change their minds after casting their ballots like the current absentee voting system does. Many more voters change their minds than most people recognize — and not just for dramatic reasons such as a U.S. senate candidate dying in a plane crash a few days before an election, as happened in Minnesota in 2002. Much new information becomes available about candidates in the days just prior to Election Day, and

Fairview expansion approved Medical office building, more parking will be added by John Gessner SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Fairview Health Services’ long-planned expansion on the Fairview Ridges Hospital site was approved March 19 by the Burnsville City Council. The $60 million expansion, the largest in the hospital’s 29-year history, will add a five-story, 132,800-square-foot clinic and medical office building in back of the hospital, whose main entrance faces north. The building, which isn’t considered a hospital use, will provide sameday surgery and CT/MRI scanning services to patients who would normally visit the hospital. A skyway will connect the new building to the hospital. A four-level, 574-stall parking ramp will also be built. Smaller additions are planned for the hospital itself, including the second-

floor skyway connection on the south side. A 4,000-square-foot expansion on the east side will add lab space, and a 3,000-square-foot expansion on the west side will house mechanical equipment. The council also approved a 176-stall parkinglot expansion at Prince of Peace Lutheran Church, located across Nicollet Boulevard from the hospital. The extra parking, a collaboration between the church and the hospital, will accommodate the hospital’s daytime peak demands and the church’s need for more evening and weekend parking, City Planner Chris Slania said. Two crosswalks from the Prince of Peace lot across Nicollet Boulevard will be built. Pedestrians will push a button to cross, activating in-pavement lights and flashing signs. The crosswalks will be

built along with an extension of Fairview Drive as a three-lane road from Nicollet Avenue to Nicollet Boulevard. The Fairview Ridges expansion follows an expansion approved in 2005 that added fifth and sixth floors to the hospital. The hospital and church are part of the Ridges Campus, a 108acre campus of medical, religious and senior housing facilities. Property owners are Ebenezer Senior Living, Fairview, Park Nicollet, Prince of Peace and the Minnesota Valley YMCA. The campus is bordered by McAndrews Road on the north, Interstate 35E and the Best Western Premier Nicollet Inn on the south, Portland Avenue on the east and Nicollet Avenue on the west.

voters should have the right to change their votes based on new information. An early voting system would not allow this: Voters in such systems are stripped of the right to change their votes, once their votes are cast, because their ballots have already been placed in the ballot box and counted, with no way track them back to the voters. An “early-voting” system would actually weaken the “access” pillar of a strong election system. • Another clear weakness of early voting, if implemented in Minnesota, would be the after-the-fact discovery of some voters’ ineligibility. We already have this problem with our loose Election Day registration procedures (same-day voter registration with no ID requirement). Expanding the looseness to the weeks of voting prior to Election Day would not be an improvement. In our current absentee voting system, it is possible to verify voters’ eligibility before their ballots are counted until Election Day with all the other ballots. An “early-voting” system would also weaken the “integrity” pillar of a strong election system. Consequently, a superior legislative reform would be simply to change the law to allow absentee voting without an excuse. Many Minnesota voters already vote by “in-person” absentee ballot at a local election office, which is easier for many

people than by-mail absentee voting and provides every bit of the ease of access that “early voting” does but also retains the integrity of our current system. We often hear that people do not know about the “in-person” absentee ballot option or about the re-voting benefit that the current absentee ballot system provides to people who change their minds before Election Day. This simply suggests that state officials should do a better job at publicizing voters’ options — not that we should change and weaken the whole system. One small tweak to our current absentee ballot system would increase the voters’ right to ballot access and preserve their right to election integrity and thus represents a significant reform to our election system — that is Simon’s bill. Readers should call their legislators and the governor to ask them to support Simon’s bill.

The birth of a penguin chick at the Minnesota Zoo this month was an especially welcome addition to the penguin exhibit, as African penguins are endangered in the wild due to over-fishing, pollution and fluctuating temperatures. (File photo)

Zoo’s penguin exhibit has new addition Hatching of endangered African penguin chick is ďŹ rst for Minnesota Zoo by Andrew Miller SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

The Minnesota Zoo’s “3M Penguins of the African Coast� exhibit welcomed a new addition this month with the hatching of a penguin chick on March 2. It’s the first chick born at the exhibit, which opened in 2011 with 18 African penguins inhabiting a replica of their habitat on South Africa’s Boulders Beach. The chick – whose gender is not yet known – is currently being raised behind the scenes by foster parents; zookeepers decided to give the chick to foster parents because its biological parents were not properly incubating the egg.

Zookeepers report that the chick is doing well – growing from 2.4 ounces at birth to over a pound. The birth was an especially welcome addition to the exhibit, as African penguins are endangered in the wild because of over-fishing, pollution and fluctuating temperatures; they are currently in a crisis situation due to catastrophic food shortages. To help address the penguin crisis, the Minnesota Zoo has awarded Becky Heller, one of the zoo’s penguin keepers, a grant to travel to South Africa and participate in the South African Foundation for the Conservation of Coastal Birds, which has a chickbolstering project that

hand-rears and releases orphaned penguins in an effort to aid the wild population. The penguin exhibit at the Minnesota Zoo offers above and below water views of the penguins in a replica of their natural African habitat, including a 15,000-gallon, 7-foot-deep pool along with a beach and cliffs with built-in nest boxes for the penguins to sleep and breed. There’s also a sound system to convey the braying noises the penguins make, and daily feeding demonstrations by zookeepers. More about the exhibit is at www.mnzoo.org.

lis. “I never know when I start a piece how long it is going to take.� Art has been a part of Rita’s life as far back as she can remember. She said it seemed to take her out of the reality of everyday life. “My sister told me once that I never heard our mother yell at us because I always had my head in the clouds,� she said. “To this day I have no memory of my mother ever yelling and there were eight of us.� As she grew into her artistic ability, Rita turned to teaching, which she did for 25 years at St. Joseph Catholic School and the public schools in Rosemount. “I absolutely loved teaching and miss it every day,� she said. “Opening the eyes of students to the wonder of the world and the wonder of being able to create themselves never ceases to amaze me. Being able to experience the ‘aha’ moment when a student really gets it is a gift that continues to motivate.� She said teaching influenced her work as she would create in her studio after being inspired by her students’ effort. “Painting or drawing is something that I don’t think I could ever live without,� Rita said. “It makes a day brighter when I can create, and something is missing when I can’t get into the studio.�

Being around their mother’s creativity has led her children to find artistic expression in their own way. Among her five children are a cartoonist, an art teacher/commissioned artist, an art education major, a design engineer, and a lawyer for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees in South Sudan, Africa. Rita’s husband, Don, could be considered an artist in his own right. Don’s media were electric, light and power. He recently retired as owner of Corrigan Electric, a company established by his father in 1932. Having lived in Rosemount for 40 years, Rita has served on the St. Joseph Board of Education, was active in Legion of Mary and is currently working with the Iconography Ministry at St. Joseph. She also now has a chance to exhibit her work in Rosemount. After the recent establishment of an art gallery at the Robert Trail Library, Corrigan is one of the few artists to be included in the first show. “It is wonderful to have a place for former students and friends to view my work and to be inspired by all the artists we hope to show in the future,� she said.

Rita’s mother’s name is Rose. “A shaft of light seemed to permeate all of my work and I had no recollection of a plan or design,� said Rita, whose previous standard process was to use the pastel stick and blend it with one stroke on top of another. “When I continued to explore this method of working, I found inspiration in cloud formations and sunsets,� she said. “I also changed my way of applying the pastel to the paper and now used not just the pastel stick to blend, but also blend with my hands.� This more visceral connection to her art hasn’t made it any easier. “Some pieces are completed as if they have a life of their own, other times the completion is a struggle,� said Corrigan, who has a studio in the Northrup King Building in Northeast Minneapo-

my life in a time when there was a serious need, and they were there,” she said. The first time Butler went to the Feed My Sheep Food Shelf at Messiah Lutheran Church in Lakeville, she said, “I was very embarrassed that I was actually going to accept help.” That feeling quickly changed when the first woman she saw gave her a big hug. “Never at any point did anyone I interact with at 360 or Messiah make me feel bad about it. Everyone I have come in contact with has helped me feel positive and made me feel so supported,” she said. Butler’s situation is not uncommon at 360 Communities. While the economy is on the upswing, the five local food shelves connected with 360 Communities have seen an 18 percent increase in visits last year. For the first fiscal quarter year over year that number is up almost 26 percent. More than 830,000 pounds of food were distributed across Farmington, Lakeville, Rosemount, Apple Valley and Burnsville at food shelves. “We are seeing an increase across the board,” said Anika Rycher, 360 Communities lead director of services. “We really see the gamut. We’re seeing senior citizens on fixed incomes that rely on the food shelf on a regular basis, people with disabilities on a fixed incomes, families with small children, school-age children.”

Tony Compton, 360 Communities’ marketing and communications coordinator, put a photo on Facebook, and the photo was passed around, filling the shelves within a matter of days. “We have a community that really sees what their stake is in making sure that people are supported,” Compton said. Without these contributions and the help of 1,125 volunteers, he said, 360 Communities could not serve all the people it does. “Food is easy for people to get excited about because it is tangible, and it is the most basic of needs,” Rycher said. “I could do a food drive in my business or community; but when you bring food or financial dollars to 360 Communities, it goes far beyond the need for food.” The organization also provides support for women in abusive situations and educational support for families through programs like Partners in Success, among other resources. After relying on a food shelf for a few months, Butler just accepted a new job. She hopes to volunteer with 360 Communities and give back to the people who gave her so much.

Sports Hot goalie cools off the Dakota United at state Hawks are runner-up in PI Division by Mike Shaughnessy SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Considering that Dakota United had averaged more than 11 goals in its previous 15 games, the last thing the Hawks could have imagined was that they would be shut out in the state final. But that’s what happened as Robbinsdale/ Hopkins/Mound Westonka goalie Charlie Wittmer stoned the Hawks, making 29 saves as the Robins won 5-0 in the PI Division championship game Saturday at Bloomington Jefferson High School. “He won the game for them,” Dakota United coach Brett Sadek said. “I think we outshot them by quite a bit and we had some really good scoring opportunities.” Robbinsdale/Hopkins/ Mound Westonka won the state championship for the third year in a row and fourth time in the last five years. Dakota United, which has finished second at state the last two years, finished 14-2. Both losses were against the Robins. A title game rematch had been anticipated because the Robins and Hawks were the top seeds from the North and South divisions. Sadek said his players probably expected it, too. “We talked about trying not to look that far ahead,” the coach said. “We wanted to take it a game at a time, and we had a really tough game in

(Photo by Rick Orndorf) the semifinals (a 6-5 overtime victory over AnokaHennepin). But I think this was the game the kids were looking forward to.” With the Robins already leading 4-0 in the third period, the Hawks’ Grayson Nicolay snapped a wrist shot toward the corner of the net, only to see Wittmer snatch it with his glove hand. The look of disbelief on Nicolay’s face told it all for the Hawks in the championship game. Dakota United’s offense came up big in its first two state tournament games. Nicolay scored the game-winner in overtime against Anoka-Hennepin on a shot from near the center line. He scored four goals in regulation time, and Kyra Patterson had one goal. Jaayson Meyer

had four assists. Nicolay had seven goals and two assists in the Hawks’ 10-1 firstround victory over Wayzata/Minnetonka. Meyer and Nick Kuefler scored one goal each. Dakota United, which last won the PI Division in 2006, could be back for another run at the state championship next year as only two of its players – forward Lantz Estep and goalie Marcus Urban – are seniors. “We had three or four young guys who had to be shown the ropes at the beginning of the season, but by the end of the year they really came on,” Sadek said. “With Grayson, our biggest problem is managing his energy level because he plays a lot. We don’t want to put hand-

I wouldn’t trade them for anybody.” Nicolay and Meyer were named to the alltournament team, as was defender Liz Kimmes.

CI Division Dakota United, an adapted sports cooperative that includes Apple Valley, Eagan, Eastview

and Rosemount high schools, also had a team in the CI Division tournament at state. The Hawks opened by taking out three-time defending champion Anoka-Hennepin 8-2 in the first round. Carl Fagre scored six goals for the Hawks, with Tyler Voss and Hunter Patrick adding one each. Eventual CI Division champion North Suburban defeated the Hawks 7-5 in Saturday’s semifinals.

The Burnsville/Farmington/ Lakeville CI (cognitive impaired) adapted floor hockey team had its best-ever finish at the state tournament last weekend bringing home the secondplace trophy. The Blazing Cats lost to North Suburban 7-6 in the state championship on Saturday at Bloomington Jefferson. The team held the lead going into the final period, but North Suburban surged back with five goals in the third to win. Brendan Wong and Steve Friday each had two goals and an assist while goalie Terry Kalm had 24 saves. The Blazing Cats entered the tournament as the No. 3 seed from the south with a 9-2 record and went on to defeat two higher-seeded teams to reach the finals. In the first round, the Blazing Cats defeated No. 2 north seed Mounds View/Irondale/Roseville 10-6. The Blazing Cats were behind 5-4 after two periods, and fired six successful shots in the final period. Cody Bali had four goals and Michael Burns had two. Kalm had 19 saves. The victory put the Blazing Cats in the state semifinal

12-6 in the third-place game as senior Joe Sandey scored a hat trick and added two assists.

Moms on the Run lace up their shoes Running groups starting up around the metro in time for spring by Andy Rogers SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

There are few situations where someone will tell you to avoid physical activity, unless it’s your own inner voice … or perhaps the calendar. Despite a few more years on their shoe treads, a group of women in the south metro have found an outlet with the running group Moms on the Run. The Lakeville group’s head coach, Kelly Wittke, a mother of three young children all born within four years,

knows that moms need some “me time” and running has been a healthy, social hobby for her. She leads three sessions a week from April 23 to Aug. 20 at Casperson Park. There also are clubs in Apple Valley at Diamond Path Park and in Farmington at Rambling River Park. Every one-hour session includes a warmup, followed by 30 minutes of run/ walk intervals for beginners and speed intervals for intermediates. Strength/toning exercises, stretching and a cool-down are part of the workout. “The thing that makes it unique is that we’re geared toward women who are beginning to run — people who don’t have that fitness foundation,” Wittke said. They focus on proper running form, injury prevention and having fun.

“By the end of the season the goal is to run 30 minutes, which is about a 5 (kilometers),” Wittke said. There’s an intermediate runner group as well and another class geared toward increasing endurance. There are several running clubs in the area, but Moms on the Run has found its niche. Runners range from 23 to 65 years old, and they build relationships along the trail. “The friendship aspect is just as important as running,” Wittke said. “A lot of people could do it on their own, but it’s a lot easier with support and accountability. You can usually find someone with your pace to run with. It’s a diverse group and running really bonds them together.”

Several women make a goal of running a 5-kilometer race. Last year several runners went on to do a half-marathon. Wittke started out as a member looking for women to run with. Now she’s a certified running instructor with several marathon medals, and she said it has made her a happier person and better parent. “It makes me feel better on so many different levels: emotional, physically and mentally,” Wittke said. “It’s a great way to take care of yourself. Running outside is so much fun in the fresh air. You might not feel great when you start, but you’ll feel great when you’re done.” Wittke estimated that 85-90 percent of the club’s members have children, but See RUNNING, 10A

Success didn’t come without some disappointments, but Tommy kept persevering through it all and eventually proved that he was one of the best at what he did. Before starting his junior season, Tommy made it clear that he wanted to win a State Championship and win he did! He only lost once his junior season, which was to the number 2 ranked high school wrestler at his weight class. He achieved his goal of winning a state championship and then went on to repeat that same feat this season to become Lakeville’s first 2-time state wrestling champion in history. He lost one match in the last 2 seasons, and has a winning streak of 71-1. In addition to his success in the winner’s circle, Tommy also holds the record for most takedowns in a single season (237). Tommy ended his career with close to 130 Varsity wins and is looking for more as he continues his wrestling career at NDSU.

Congratulations to this week’s highlighted athlete! The athlete will receive a $10 Gift Certificate to Paragon Odyssey 15 in Burnsville, courtesy of Paragon Odyssey 15 and Sun Thisweek.

Thisweekend Who killed Edwin Drood? You make the call Chameleon Theatre offers interactive experience with ‘The Mystery of Edwin Drood’ by Andrew Miller SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

atre Circle is bringing this you-decide-whothe-killer-is experience to the stage of the Burnsville Performing Arts Center. Directed by Matt McNabb, the production features an 11-piece live orchestra and a cast of 15 actors. The run of the show March 22-April 7 includes a special promotion on March 28, which is “Pay What You Can” night, with audience members setting their own price for a ticket. That evening’s performance will be followed by a discussion with the “Drood” cast and crew. Audio description for visually impaired theater-goers will be offered March 24, and ASL interpretation will accompany the show on March 29. Tickets range from $17 to $20 and are available in person at the Performing Arts Center’s box office and through Ticketmaster online or (800) 982-2787. More about the production is at www.chameleontheatre.org.

In 1870, Charles Dickens died before completing his novel “The Mystery of Edwin Drood.” Since then, writers have attempted to supply a conclusion to the story, including the identity of the title character’s killer. Over the years many writers sought to simply tie up all the loose ends of the Dickens book – such as the Vermont author Thomas James, who in 1873 published a version of “Drood” that he said had been psychically “channeled” from the ghost of Dickens. But in the mid-1980s the composer and playwright Rupert Holmes did something novel with the “Drood” material: He turned it into a musical comedy. And because Dickens left the story with no ending, Holmes added a twist for theater-goers, writing as many solutions to the murder mystery as possible, and then having the audience decide by a vote which of the characters is the killer. Email Andrew Miller at Now, Burnsville- andrew.miller@ecm-inc.
