Aside from sore legs and lungs, Lance Kuehn is OK. His family is OK, too. Lance Kuehn But it might be a few weeks before any of them fully understand what happened Monday in Massachusetts. An Eagan resident and teacher at Rosemount High School, Kuehn, 30, ran the Boston Marathon on Monday with his family cheering him on. They are still absorbing the shock of what happened, and trying to avoid asking themselves “what if?� “I had a cramp at mile 22,� Kuehn said. “What if I started to walk?� Kuehn’s family was waiting by the finish line at the exact spot where one of two explosions took place. When he turned on Boylston Street for the last twotenths of a mile, he saw his family cheering him on. He ran the marathon in 3 hours, 16 minutes, 50 seconds. A good time, especially for a first-timer at Boston. He cherished the moment, gathered his belongings

For every domestic violence or sexual assault case in Dakota County, officers call up 360 Communities’ Lewis Houses in Eagan and Hastings so survivors have someone reaching out to them. Whether the victim needs someone to take them to the hospital, court or police interview, Lewis House staff and volunteers standby on the 24/7 support hotline. The message advocates have for survivors is simple: “I believe you. I support you. You do not deserve this.� The statistics reveal that sexual assault is all too common and does not discriminate. It can happen to anyone. An American is sexually assaulted every two minutes, one in four girls is sexually assaulted before the age of 18, only 16 percent of rapes are reported to the police, according to the Minnesota Coalition Against Sexual Assault. Both the Eagan and Hastings Lewis House have been at about capacity through the winter, whereas past years saw more of a lull during these months, See LEWIS, 12A

Rosemount High School senior Dalton Christopher Sherrard died on Thursday, April 11. He was 18. Family and friends are remembering Dalton this week with a visitation and memorial service Thursday and Friday, respectively, and those who never knew Dalton will remember Dalton Sherrard his selfless gift of organ donation for many years to come. Dalton’s father, Chris, wrote in an email that his son decided on his own to be an organ donor when he completed his driver’s license application. His heart is expected to go to a 16-year-old boy who has been waiting for more than a year for a transplant, Chris Sherrard wrote. “They stated that he was expected to help up to 66 people,� Chris Sherrard wrote. Also donated were Dalton’s liver, kidneys, pancreas and intestines in addition to multiple tissue donations. See SHERRARD, 12A

An unusually long winter means the city of Farmington had to delay some spring maintenance projects and spend most of its snow removal budget on sand. Director of Municipal Services Todd Reiten said that about $70,000 has been spent on salt already, compared to $30,000 spent at the same time in 2012. “Every year we always say it’s a weird year. It seems like last year was 80 degrees at this time, but it all comes around,� Reiten said. Reiten said the city usually budgets about $100,000 for snow removal each year, which will include snow clearing costs later this year. He said the budget might have to be adjusted later to compensate for these costs.

Labor costs for snow removal has also come at a higher price tag. “Everybody is pretty much maxed out in their overtime,� Reiten said. The city is also working to patch up potholes, and Reiten said the staff has gone through 90 bags of cold patch, a temporary pothole fill, already this year, which is more than the city has used in the past. “The roads are not in great shape right now,� Reiten said, but the city plans to blacktop and fix more potholes when the weather improves. Hydrant flushing that was supposed to start this week was pushed back until the end of April and early May. Reiten said this is partly because street sweepers have not gotten out much yet to get rid of leftover salt. Hydrant flushing at this time would have sent salt down into the sewer sys-

Helping others brings blessings for all Dakota County residents band together in faithbased nonprofit store by Jennifer Chick SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Secondhand stores are in the business of helping others, but two local stores are finding that helping each other might be the biggest blessing of all. Michelle Overbey founded Shidor, the Second Hand Store, in Farmington three and a half years ago. “It’s a tough business to be in, but we were feeling that this year was going to be our calling,” she said. When leasing options in Farmington changed, Overbey made the tough decision to close her store in early April. She described that action as having the rug pulled from underneath her. She had loved serving customers in need through Shidor and her faith-based nonprofit, Salt and Light, and wasn’t sure what her next move should be. Then she got a call from Keith Haskell. Keith and his wife, Kathleen, are directors of Garage Sale Outlet, another secondhand store that recently moved from Rosemount to Lakeville. The shop is an extension of the Haskells’ own faith-based nonprofit, Free Indeed. With one phone call,

Overbey felt her future shift into focus. “It’s completely a God thing because for me to close this store, and then find these guys, I had to trust God and know I would be OK and something would pop up,” Overbey said, tears welling up in her eyes as she recalls the overwhelming sensations of the last few months. That phone call set the foundation for Overbey’s new role as independent consultant for Garage Sale Outlet. She felt a connection with the Haskells right away and realized that their own goals and ideals aligned quite closely with why she had started her nonprofit and store. The Haskells and Overbey are still deciding what roles they will cover in the new venture, but they look forward to a future where they can support each other while sharing knowledge and ideas. “It’s obvious that God’s favorite game is ‘Connect the Dots,’ ” Keith Haskell said. The Haskells started their nonprofit business after seeing a need last summer. Keith Haskell had started Addictions, a program to help inmates at Dakota County Jail. When one of those in the program graduated and started a new job, his family needed essentials but his first paycheck was still weeks away. The Haskells had many

Michelle Overbey, seated, closed Shidor, her secondhand store in Farmington, last week, but she is excited to lend her expertise to Garage Sale Outlet of Lakeville, started by Kathleen and Keith Haskell. Overbey will serve as an independent consultant for the store. (Photo by Jennifer Chick) of those essentials stashed in their garage, so they let the man and his family “shop” from their garage. That encounter led the Haskells to realize that Dakota County has many resources, but sometimes those resources are hard to get on short notice. “We decided we needed something that people can get to right now,” Kathleen Haskell said. So they started Garage Sale Outlet. As well as clothing, furniture and other household furnishings, the shop

also stocks food and other necessities. The shop quickly outgrew its space. The Haskells found a new spot for the store at the Lakeville Mall, Holyoke Crossing, 20730 Holyoke Ave., Suite 150, next door to the local food shelf. The store’s opening day in Lakeville was during a March snowstorm, but even so, Kathleen Haskell said they had two times as many people come into the store as they ever had in Rosemount. As the couple balanced

outside jobs and commitments with the daily task of operating Garage Sale Outlet, they were becoming overwhelmed. That’s where Overbey came in. She hopes she can be a breath of fresh air to the Haskells, sharing her time, talents and knowledge in a way that will benefit everyone. “I know it’s going to be a lot of trial and error, but I know I would rather share and get them going,” she said. “Once you’ve been there, you understand it. We each knew that we can help each other out with our drive and our passion because we have a lot of the same drive and the same passion.” Not only is the store a place for people to find quality items at garage sale prices, but any profits go back into Dakota County through a variety of programs and organizations. Garage Sale Outlet provides vouchers to help families in need through local churches. The business works with judges to help those who need to log community service hours. Transitions Plus, a life skills coaching school for people ages 18-22 out of Apple Valley, has students who spend several hours each day at the store, polishing job skills and earning job recommendations. Not only do the Haskells and Overbey work in this field because they felt called to serve, they also hope to set a good example for their

own teenage children that God wants them to help all those in need. Garage Sale Oultet is launching its first fundraiser from 4:30-7:30 p.m. Saturday, April 20, with a silent auction and spaghetti dinner at the Heritage Center in Lakeville, 20110 Holyoke Ave. “We’re here to see Dakota County and the people of Dakota County succeed,” Kathleen Haskell said. The store accepts donations, but because their industry is seasonal, the store’s biggest challenge right now is additional storage to stow out-ofseason items. Kathleen Haskell urges anyone with storage space they would be willing to donate to contact the store at 952-807-1515. Garage Sale Outlet also seeks volunteers to work shifts during the week. Those volunteers enable the Haskells and Overbey to set up partnerships with other organizations to serve a larger area of people. Store hours are Monday and Wednesday, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. “We started this literally to try to be a blessing to the people because there is a lot of need out there,” Kathleen said, “but I can’t tell you how many people have been a blessing to us.”

Flint Hills to implement more stringent energy efficiency, emission standards $1 million donation slated toward clean air legacy program Flint Hills Resources will apply energy efficiency and emission standards to a series of proposed projects at its Pine Bend refinery in Rosemount as part of an agreement with key environmental organizations, according to a release issued by the company this week. The company will also donate $1 million to expand Project Green Fleet, a clean air program it helped found in 2005. Last November, Flint Hills announced plans to make more than $400 million in improvements to several processing units at the refinery in an effort to improve reliability, reduce key emissions, and improve its ability to convert crude oil into transportation fuel. The projects involve replacing three less-efficient heaters with two new state-of-the-art heaters, upgrading an existing process heater, and making improvements to the refinery’s cooling towers. Once complete the new and modified equipment and process improvements are expected to allow the refinery to operate closer to its current design capacity of

320,000 barrels per day. The company engaged the environmental community through the Minnesota Center for Environmental Advocacy and the Environmental Integrity Project on ways to improve the projects prior to formal regulatory review. As a result, Flint Hills agreed to make a number of adjustments to its permit proposal, including: • Adopting a more energy efficient design and operation plan for the new and modified heaters • Setting stack exhaust temperature limits for the heaters, which will ensure the equipment is operated in a way that minimizes energy use • Establishing heating value limits on fuels used in the heaters, which ensures the use of efficient fuels such as natural gas and high-quality fuel gas • Agreeing to additional enforceable limits on volatile organic compounds (VOCs) emissions from the refinery’s cooling towers and regular monitoring • Taking stringent sulfur dioxide limits (S02) on the combustion of fuel gas used by the heaters

• Conducting thirdparty energy efficiency audits on key refinery process units and heaters, and exploring future energy efficiency opportunities “We thought it was important to reach out to environmental leaders and look for ways to work together to improve the projects ahead of the traditional regulatory review process,” said Scott Lindemann, vice president and manufacturing manager at Flint Hills Resources Pine Bend refinery. “We are very pleased with the result, which is a better overall project.” The Pine Bend refinery improvement projects are expected to create as many as 4 million hours of new work, increasing the current temporary contract workforce at Pine Bend from a daily average of about 500 to more than 1,000 over at least the next five years. Pine Bend currently employs more than 900 people full-time and can have between 400 and 2,000 contract workers on-site on any given day. Construction is expected to begin next year.

Since 1997 the Pine Bend refinery has lowered emissions of traditional criteria pollutants by approximately 70 percent, while increasing production to help meet demand for transportation fuel. The refinery has reduced total on-site emissions in 10 of the last 11 years, and its emissions per barrel are currently 50 percent lower than the industry average for large refineries. The new projects will result in a decrease in NOx and sulfur dioxide (SO2) emissions.

Green Fleet Flint Hills will donate $1 million toward clean air programs that focus on reducing particulate matter (PM 2.5) and ground level ozone in the spirit of Project Green Fleet, an award-winning program led by Environment Initiative. Flint Hills was a founding sponsor of the program, which started in 2005. Project Green Fleet is responsible for reducing 23.55 tons of particulate matter, the equivalent of eliminating emissions from 350,000 cars each

year. Flint Hills is also a primary sponsor of Environmental Initiative’s Clean Air Dialogue, which is looking for new or expanded opportunities to reduce emissions. With the new funding, Flint Hills will work with Environmental Initiative, Minnesota Center for Environmental Advocacy, and Environmental Integrity Project to determine specific opportunities for improving air quality and building on the success of Project Green Fleet. “Minnesota has outstanding air quality and we want to help make sure it stays that way,” Lindemann said. “We greatly appreciate the work of Environmental Initiative and the help of all of its sponsors over the years in making Project Green Fleet one of the most effective strategies for improving air quality in the country.” Project Green Fleet is supported by a broad coalition of government, private businesses, and nonprofits that are committed to keeping Minnesota’s air clean. The Project Green Fleet program started in 2005 when

Environmental Initiative launched a pilot effort to reduce diesel emissions from school buses. A small number of school buses had pollution control equipment installed during the first year of the project, which was made possible with the financial support of Flint Hills. Since then, Environmental Initiative’s Project Green Fleet has expanded its voluntary efforts to reduce emissions from Rochester to Roseau. Project Green Fleet has also diversified its efforts to include new technologies and other diesel vehicles beyond school buses. Since it was established as the Great Northern Oil Company in 1955, the Flint Hills Resources Pine Bend refinery has played a major role in providing the transportation fuels used in Minnesota and throughout the Midwest. Today Pine Bend is a leading producer of fuels and other petroleum-based products, and among the cleanest, most efficient, and safest refineries in the country.

Opinion Funding pre-kindergarten scholarships is a necessary step A growing number of scientific findings on early brain development and the ability of children to learn more earlier is leading educational and business leaders to push for more state funding to educate 3- and 4-year-old children, particularly from communities with concentrations of poor families. Experts say that at the age of 5 a child’s brain is 90 percent developed, enabling the child to learn numerical concepts, good behavior and how to get along with other children. Gov. Mark Dayton and Minnesota Education Commissioner Brenda Cassellius are urging legislators to approve more dollars for pre-kindergarten scholarships and for all-day, everyday kindergarten. Last month this newspaper’s editorial board, in keeping with its year-long educational agenda, endorsed full funding for all-day, everyday kindergarten for all students in Minnesota. We also favor more pre-K funding, because half of Minnesota’s children are not prepared for kindergarten, according to the Department of Education. Dayton wants the Legislature to fund $44 million to allocate 10,000 pre-K scholarships intended for children from families in poverty. These scholarships would be run through the popular Parent Aware program in which parents

ECM Editorial rate the providers of pre-K programs. Parents would select from a list of providers rated 4 and above. We are concerned, however, that scholarships in the governor’s bill are intended mainly for children living in communities where there are concentrations of poverty, possibly excluding poor students living in middle-income communities across the state. We urge the Office of Early Learning at the Department of Education to distribute the scholarships equitably across the state. Economists Arthur Rolnick and Rob Grunewald have drawn national attention, particularly from the business community, with their claim that for every dollar invested in early-childhood education for low-income children in high-quality programs, there is a return on investment of $16. Some critics question spending state dollars on programs whose effectiveness, they say, is disproven by studies. They also claim that students who do not have early-childhood education usually catch up with those who do by third grade. A highly interesting study by James Heckman, Nobel economist, found that children from higher-income families

who were observed and tested from ages 3 to 18 scored much higher than students in lower-income families. What’s stunning is that children from families living in concentrated poverty areas who miss the pre-K education step never catch up with children from higher income families who have pre-K. As reported in the New York Times, Heckman and others confirm that investment in early education of disadvantaged children pays extremely high returns down the road. Cassellius says there is plenty of research to support investment in young learners as a critical way to close the achievement gap and improve student outcomes. She points to a study in North Carolina, where low-income students who attended preschool had higher math and reading scores in third grade than their peers. A study in Michigan traced two groups of low-income students, those who attended preschool and those who didn’t. The study found that at age 40, those who attended preschool had higher levels of education, earned more money, were more likely to own a home and were less likely to be incarcerated. Minnesota already has a pre-K program that’s offered through 300 public school districts and is funded by local and state funds. Early Childhood Family Education works with parents and

their children from birth to kindergarten. It is based on the belief that the family provides the child’s first and most significant learning. This emphasis on pre-K education is in line with what is happening nationally. President Obama proposes to expand early-childhood education to provide high-quality pre-K for 4-year-olds from families whose incomes are at or below 200 percent of the poverty line. Through a Race to the Top federal grant of $10.7 million, more pre-K scholarships for poor children in Minnesota are being awarded from 2012 to 2015. As part of the grant, a special committee designates the families that should receive the scholarships. We believe spending money at the state level for 10,000 pre-K scholarships targeting children living in poverty areas is a necessary investment in view of the fact that half of Minnesota’s children are not ready for kindergarten. We urge people who agree with this view to let their legislators know that funding for pre-K education is a necessary first step to narrowing the achievement gap between have and have-not students.

Letters Pray for our nation To the editor: May 2 marks the 62nd Annual National Day of Prayer. This is a special day set aside by the U.S. Congress by a joint resolution in which people may recognize the importance of praying for our nation. This is a privilege open to anyone to pray in any way their own tradition style directs them. I am proud and grateful for this nation which through the First Amendment added in 1791 says: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” No other country allows people of other faiths to have such “asylum, prosperity and freedom of worship” (Patrick Henry, governor of Virginia and legislator, 1790). Volunteer coordinator networks organize local, state and federal observances across the nation. Observances begin at sunrise in Maine and continue through the day until sunset in Hawaii. There is unity through a theme, scripture and artwork which is developed by the NDP Task Force, but individuals are free to observe the day in their own prayer style. Local observances are planned and announced through different media. You may check the national website to see if there

is an observance in your area: www.nationaldayofprayer.org. The State Capitol program begins at 11:30 a.m. with worship and praise led by “Heart of the City” worship band. Come join government and local leaders in praying for our nation on May 2. SHARON AULDRICH State coordinator, National Day of Prayer Burnsville

Role of economic demand

In spite of these phenomena, although average incomes have fallen, employment has slowly increased, which is a good sign. That sign is reflected in greater demand for goods and services for many local business owners and greater certainty about our economic future and consumer confidence. I suggest the strategy of priming the economic pump is working, and that doesn’t require the usual remedy of “cutting business taxes.” Maybe if we increased the minimum wage we’d see an even greater increase in economic demand and employment. It could sure reduce the misery index for many low-wage families, and increase their domestic stability. BETTY FEDDE Eagan

Health care in the hands of government? To the editor: Ruth Carlson’s letter to the editor should have everyone mystified. In her letter, Carlson berates U.S. Rep. John Kline and the GOP for not giving her or others health insurance. Carlson objects that not all folks do not carry insurance. While some people often choose not to purchase insurance, others rely on free health care which is now required for the indigent. In my humble opinion, Congress has no constitutional authority to do what Carlson asks. Surely if health care is to be given to everyone then myriad necessities such as housing, food and transportation must be given to those without. Ultimately no one would have to be a productive citizen since the government would take care of all. It is most ironic that a great statesman, Margaret Thatcher, would pass on at this time. Often, she correctly asserted and demonstrated that government agencies are wasteful, inefficient and ineffective. Is it possible that our founders understood that the fundamental human condition does not change but that Carlson has now found a way to create a new human condition? The last thing that Carlson should desire is health care in the hands of government agencies. One must pause and ask what provokes such odious utterances.

To the editor: As a small-business owner, I am encouraged by the increase in the number of jobs in our local economy. For that reason, I could wish that all the jobs were as goodpaying as they once were. The statistic that the minimum-wage of the 1960s in today’s dollars, adjusted for inflation, would run to over $11 per hour. Average wages for those of us who aren’t in the top 20 percent of earners, have fallen over the last decade. During this time, wealthier Americans have seen their incomes grow by thousands of dollars and their tax rates have fallen, according to studies by the IRS and the state Revenue De- RICHARD IFFERT partment. Eagan

The way of the people is not through guns To the editor: A March 29 letter writer states that the second amendment “is the reason we exist as a country.” This ignores the fact that the Continental Congress declared independence in 1776 and the Constitution was not ratified until 1787. The writer says “the people should be allowed to defend ourselves from outside and inside forces that jeopardize the American way of life.” Regarding outside forces, we maintain the most powerful military on Earth. I’m not sure of the “inside forces” to which he refers, but law enforcement agencies are charged by citizens, through their elected representatives, to maintain law and order. Vigilantism does not appear to be the method preferred by the majority. He says gun control is “the act of taking away weapons from people.” This is a very limited definition, particularly since current proposals include expansion of background checks, limitations on sales of high capacity clips, and a ban on the sale of semi-automatic weapons. None of these involve taking guns away from people. He concludes, questionably, that since there are about 300 million guns and 300 million citizens, the majority of citizens own at least one gun, then asks: “Is it the American way to deprive the majority of what it wants?” Well, polls indicate a huge majority favors expanded background checks and a smaller majority favors limitations on high capacity clips. He returns to the idea that: “The right to own guns is our last safeguard from a government that loses sight of what the people want.” The way the people of this country have elected to direct the priorities and actions of its representatives is through the ballot box, not the barrel of a gun. We are part of “the government.” And if he really thinks citizens must be armed to protect themselves from “the government,” then we better be willing to allow private ownership of automatic weapons, tanks, bombers, artillery, drones and any of the long list of weaponry available to our military. Personally, I have a much higher opinion of the patriotism of our military and elected leadership. KAREN SAMES Eagan

Clausen optimistic about kindergarten bill Voluntary program aims to help close achievement gap by Tad Johnson SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

First-term Sen. Greg Clausen, DFL-Apple Valley, is carrying one of the most watched bills in the 2013 legislative session. The former Rosemount High School principal said this week he is optimistic his proposal to fund voluntary all-day kindergarten will pass in the House and the Senate. “This is a priority for a lot of people in the Senate,” he said. Clausen views the bill as not only a way to improve early learning outcomes and close the achievement gap between white and minority students but also to create curricular equity among school districts. About half of Minnesota children attend allday kindergarten, according to Senate DFLers. Districts currently offering the programs are paying for them through the general fund or about 17 percent of children’s

families are paying fees. Clausen said waiting lists and lottery systems are not equi- Greg table ways Clausen to offer the program. Whether or not a child has the opportunity to attend all-day kindergarten shouldn’t be determined by what district a child lives in, Clausen said. Clausen’s bill would need $130 million per year to pay for the statewide voluntary offering. Most of that money will be used to pay kindergarten teachers who will deliver the instruction. The Burnsville-EaganSavage School District concluded test scores of the district’s students who all had free, full-day kindergarten in the 2003-04 school year were higher than students who were enrolled in the 2004-05 year when the all-day program was dropped and transfer students who joined the 2003-04 class when it entered first-grade. The boost was sus-

tained over the next three years, with some drop-off by the third grade. The district restored free, full-day kindergarten this school year, using its allocation of compensatory aid — state money based on the number of students who qualify for free or subsidized meals — to fund the program. Clausen said it is extremely important for the state to invest in children because the returns will be paid back through higher achieving students and more skilled workers. He said studies have shown that better early childhood education results in graduates who go on to have improved basic skills, have fewer criminal justice contacts and earn more money in the workplace. The bill has some Republican supporters. Republican Dean Urdahl, Grove City, is an author of the companion legislation in the House. Another education bill that is receiving attention is a proposed two-year tuition freeze at the University of Minnesota. Clausen said Minne-

ALL YOU CAN EAT

sota graduates carry the third-highest average debt level (nearly $30,000) among students in the 50 states, and Minnesota is fifth highest among the percentage of students carrying college debt (71 percent). The bill is a recognition that tuition costs are burdening students, and Clausen said lawmakers are proposing other measures to help college students. Another provision would allow students to refinance college loans at a lower interest rate. Another would provide a tax credit to Minnesota graduates who stay in the state to work.

Zoo’s $15 million request to fund capital improvements. The request includes money to refurbish the Discover Bay and snow monkey exhibits, among other work. Another request to help the zoo in Apple Valley would provide $4.75 million for zoo programs through the Legacy Amendment funding. Clausen said he is supporting both requests since the zoo has such a wide impact on Dakota County. With an estimated 1.4 million visitors annually, the zoo has a $146 million impact on the local economy, according to Clausen, The zoo in addition to providing A proposal that could hundreds of jobs. have a significant local impact would be the ac- In the district ceptance of the Minnesota Clausen plans to have

another town hall meeting in the district from 1-2:30 p.m. Saturday, April 27, at Galaxie Library in Apple Valley. He said he will attend as long as the Senate is not in session. The meeting’s focus will be on education, which Clausen said is a very important issue in the area. Clausen said his recent joint town hall with Rep. Anna Wills, R-Apple Valley, was very positive. He viewed the bipartisan meeting as an extension of what he and Wills both campaigned on, which was reaching across the political aisle. “It was a good demonstration of that,” he said of the meeting that attracted about 150 people.

Better water flows from better thinking

Police, fire and emergency medical workers responded to a three-vehicle accident with multiple injuries at about 2:30 p.m. Saturday, April 6, at McAndrews Road and Garden View Drive in Apple Valley. According to Apple Valley police, a Jeep Liberty traveling westbound on McAndrews collided with a Dodge Caravan when the southbound Caravan failed to stop for a red light; the force of the initial collision then pushed the Caravan into a Ford Windstar. The Caravan’s driver, a 28-year-old Apple Valley woman in the employ of a group home for adults, was transporting four of the group home’s clients at the time of the crash. A helicopter was summoned to the scene for emergency airlift of one of the victims. Investigation continues as the Minnesota State Patrol undertakes a reconstruction of the crash scene.

Chiropractor’s license suspension stayed Gear had inappropriate relationships with two patients (952) 894-4040 • hwcwater.com

by John Gessner SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

A Burnsville chiropractor who had a sexual relationship with one patient and inappropriate nonsexual relations with another will be allowed to continue practicing under a settlement with the Minnesota Board of Chiropractic Examiners. The board’s one-year suspension of Angela Marie Gear’s license was stayed under a Feb. 14 settlement agreement. The settlement includes several conditions and a $3,000 civil fine. Gear practiced in Eagan for 11 years and has a practice listed with the board as Gear Chiropractic Care, 14623 County Road 11 in Burnsville. Gear had sex with a

patient within two years of ending their doctorpatient relationship, according to the board. The pair also exchanged sensitive personal information — some sexually explicit — from March 12 to May 27, 2009, when Gear treated her five times for spinal disorders, the board said. The patient was a massage therapy student who had taken Gear’s clinical science courses at an area school in 2008. They became friends. Gear received gifts from another patient she’d treated for 10 years beginning in 2000. The woman was treated with chiropractic for musculoskeletal pain and with acupuncture for emotional health problems. Gifts included childcare and home-mainte-

nance services and clothing for Gear’s children, the board found. She accepted $3,000 in May 2010 to buy a vehicle but said it was a loan she’d been repaying in $100 installments. According to the board, the woman ended her relationship with Gear at the recommendation of her psychologist and psychiatrist, who believed it had grown “inappropriately close.” Gear said she ended the relationship because the patient didn’t follow her recommendations. Under conditions of the stayed suspension, Gear must have a third adult in the room when examining or treating a patient. An exception is at her Burnsville location,

DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE April 18, 2013

KUEHN, from 1A and told his family to meet him back at the hotel. Thirty minutes later they were sitting down for lunch. About three blocks away the bombs detonated. “If sounded like every cop in Boston turned on their sirens,” Kuehn said. “We didn’t know what happened. The restaurant was loud. Someone outside said it sounded like fireworks went off. They turned on the news. Sheer amazement and panic set in. Everybody was on their phone, but we didn’t know they shut down telephone service. I’d get messages, but I couldn’t call people back.” His mother couldn’t help but wonder about the man she was standing next to while watching the race. His son was still on the course when the Kuehn family left. The crowd was about six deep at that point. “We couldn’t hear anything but sirens,” Kuehn said. “It was constant sirens. All night. It was hard to sleep.” Kuehn’s family woke up early the morning of the race to get a viewing spot near the finish line. “They weren’t let into the area at first because they were doing a dog sweep,” Kuehn said. “They didn’t check their bags or anything, but there was a very thorough check before.” His brother walked into Marathon Sports a few times to browse while waiting for him to finish. DOME, from 1A from Greenbush, people are coming from all over Minnesota looking for dry grass to play their scheduled games on. “Everyone needs field space right now,” Orr said. The Sports Dome has reached its profit goal for the year already. “We reduced our rates to help people out,” Orr said. “We could do the opposite, but no one budgeted extra for this. We reduced our rates (20-25 percent) to help people out.”

“He probably walked past that trash can (near one of the explosions) six or seven times,” Kuehn said. “I can’t imagine.” The day following the race, Kuehn was home, but still quite shaken. On one hand he was overwhelmed by the amount of people who showed concern. “A flood of calls came to me,” said Kuehn, who also coaches the Rosemount varsity boys lacrosse team. “The assistant principal sent out an email that I was fine. It was a rush of emotion that so many people cared about me. Sometimes in your life you think no one cares about you or no one cares about each other, but people are helping you, calling you to see if you’re OK. It’s very humbling. It’s very emotional.” On the other hand, he couldn’t shake the feeling that someone was trying to hurt him, his family and his peers. “What does anyone have against marathoners?” Kuehn said. “We never harm anyone. Going out running doesn’t hurt anyone. It’s not against anyone’s religion. It’s not against anyone’s social policy. It’s just people trying to better themselves.” He couldn’t help but notice the timing of the bombs. “They set it off when the greatest amount of people were going to finish,” Kuehn said. “They were targeting the biggest group. I just don’t understand.”

Kuehn is inspired by the thought of running the Boston Marathon again. “Talking with other runners, we want to go back and run again,” Kuehn said. “Whoever did this and whatever their intention, we don’t want to let them stop this.” The Boston Marathon is one of the more prestigious marathons in the world. Individuals are required to qualify, so for many amateur athletes, it’s their Olympics. “People work hard to run the qualifying time and prove to themselves they’re a good runner,” Kuehn said. “The only way to do that is to make it to Boston.” This was Kuehn’s 10th marathon, but his first time at Boston. During the race, Kuehn said he felt overwhelmed. “Just the history with this run, the fans along Heartbreak Hill, the statues of the famous people along the course, it’s an amazing atmosphere,” Kuehn said. “You run the same race with the 35 most elite runners in the world taking the same footsteps. “They can’t take away the memories of what I accomplished. When things do happen like this, we can still get together. We cheer each other on and help each other out. That the mentality of a runner.” Email Andy Rogers at andy.rogers@ecm-inc.com.

The extra funds should help the Irish Sports Dome make some improvements over the summer. They’re planning on adding new nets to help divide the field, new fences for the softball fields and new benches. Next fall they’re adding an adult flag football league, and the Minnesota Twins are planning on running camps and clinics in fall and winter. More information is at www.irishsportsdome. com.

Sports Irish boys see no reason to take a backward step Lacrosse team returns proven scorers by Mike Shaughnessy SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

The story of last season was a positive one for Rosemount boys lacrosse. Now the Irish would like to rewrite the final chapter. Getting to the state tournament is the goal for the Irish, whose 12-4 record last year was the program’s best ever. The season did end with a thud, however, as Rosemount lost 15-4 to Eagan in the Section 3 semifinals. With the playoffs expanding from four to eight sections, it would seem to make the route to state easier for a team such as the Irish. In reality, there’s not much change as the redistricting left most of the strong teams from the previous Section 3 together.

Rosemount still will have to go through teams such as defending state champion Eastview, Eagan, Apple Valley and Burnsville. “They took the top seven teams (from the previous section) and put them in one section,” Rosemount coach Lance Kuehn said. “The next seven teams went to a different section. I think a lot of coaches would say our new section is the toughest in the state. “I’d rather try to win our section than get to state from a section with a lot of teams that are still developing. If you win our section, you have a great chance of winning the state championship.” The Irish have to restock on defense, but putting the ball in the net shouldn’t be a problem.

Junior attack Carter Yepsen (41 goals, 67 points last season), senior attack Grant VanOberbeke (53 points) and junior attack Conner Yepsen (46 points) were Rosemount’s second, third and fourth leading scorers last season. “We don’t use the ‘R’ (rebuilding) word,” Kuehn said. “We think we’re as good as we were last year. We think we can accomplish as much, if not more.” Kuehn said he expects good seasons from senior midfielders Mitch Anderson and Andrew Haisting and junior midfielder Trent Woodcock. Bobby Price, a junior captain, heads up the revamped defense. Senior goalie Chase Olson is in his third year on varsity, but junior Shaun

Skrbec is making a strong bid for playing time. “I don’t know who’s going to be the starter,” Kuehn said. “We’re comfortable with either one.” The defense will include several players who are new to varsity competition. Last season the Irish had an aggressive defense that wanted to get the ball and ignite the high-powered offense, Kuehn said, whereas this year’s defenders likely will concentrate on limiting opponents’ scoring opportunities. One thing Kuehn said he also liked about this team is he has players capable of playing several positions. That could be especially helpful on offense, where the Irish can vary their attack with their skilled players. Rosemount was sched-

Burnsville Two softball players were among the Burnsville athletes signing Wednesday. Erica Belter will play at Dakota State University and Ellie Grubb will play at Dakota County Technical College. Luke Hansen signed with Iowa Central College for baseball and Charlie Kollasch will swim at St. Cloud State.

Eagan Eagan senior Zach Glienke signed a Division I hockey National Letter of Intent at the University of Maine. Tony Sarne will play football at the University of Mary in North Dakota, Drew Nichols will play tennis at St. Cloud State and Sonja Hedblom will compete in Nordic skiing at Michigan Tech.

Eastview Eastview senior Tyra Johnson, who helped the Lightning place third in the state Class 4A girls basketball tournament, will continue her college career at Minnesota State, Mankato. Erica Bestul signed with Drake University for track and field and Claire Grimm will play volleyball at Minnesota State-Moorhead.

Senior Meghan Tuccitto (13 goals) and sophomore Madi Lubeley (six goals) are returning forwards for the Irish. Rosemount’s first three scheduled games were postponed.

No letting up for Tiger boys lacrosse Farmington hopes to build off best season yet by Andy Rogers SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

A group of returning midfielders including Jake Bauman, Kevin Clifton, Michael Thompson, Dan Block, Caleb Hakala and Chris Fitzgibbons will keep the ball moving toward the opponent’s goal. On defense, Joey Todd, Alex Osborn, Nathan Brunelle, Nick Workman and Alex Aubrech hope to keep the goal clear. Matt Heinzerling steps into the goaltending role after playing defense the last few years. “Matt is one of our best overall athletes and I really look for him to anchor a solid overall group,” Sorensen said. A new wrinkle this season is the Tigers are moving to a new section. After playing in Section 3, where Farmington lost to the eventual state champion Eastview last year, the Tigers will move to a new Section 1 with the Lakeville and Rochester schools. The Minnesota State High School League expanded the playoff brackets from four to eight sections. Leaving Section 3, where some of the top teams in the state play, for Section 1 gives the Tigers a clearer route to state. With several returning players, Sorensen said the goal for the Tigers is to win the section. “I’d like to think that we are as good as anyone in this section,” Sorensen said. After what they achieved last year, the Tigers are hungry for more. The Tigers already rescheduled several games because of bad weather. The Tigers have a game scheduled for Tuesday at Rochester Century.

Last season was a remarkable one for the Farmington boys lacrosse team. In their third year as a varsity activity, the Tigers had their first winning record at 8-6. It was a year of firsts. The boys defeated Lakeville South, Chaska, Rochester John Marshall, Rochester Mayo and Rochester Century for the first time. They had a winning home record and outscored opponents 3 to 1. Although the team lost about 70 percent of its offensive output from last year along with its goaltender, the Tigers aren’t rebuilding. The Tigers have been building since lacrosse became a varsity sport in Farmington just four years ago. Lacrosse has been a varsity sport for as long as the current seniors have been in school. “We are a year older and stronger,” head coach Paul Sorensen said. “Our (lacrosse) IQ has greatly improved in every area on the field. We’ve become more athletic in some key spots.” While it remains to be seen if the Tigers can replace the scoring from last year, Sorensen is also concerned about staying on the course toward success. “My other major concern is resting on the laurels of the success we had last season,” Sorensen said. “We have a group of hard-working guys so that hopefully won’t be the case, but our phrase sums up our mindset going in: ‘Earned. Never Given.’ ” Brendan Berg, the team’s leading goal scorer, is back at attacker with Email Andy Rogers Garrett Gunderson and Corey Ru- andy.rogers@ecm-inc.com. drud to help mitigate the graduation losses on offense.

At midfield Kylee Glen, Rachael Welzin and Shelby Klotz “should all be solid and two-way players,” Pickens said. Pickens is counting on Michaela Tonsager to lead the attack. The entire defensive core will be new, but they have one of the best as their last line of defense with Maddie Kohlbeck as the goaltender. The Tigers will have many new young players this year including eighthgraders Ashley Steffes and Amanda Davenport. The girls have a goal of reaching the state tournament this year, which won’t be as tall of an order in 2013. The Minnesota State High School League expanded the number of sections and teams that qualify for state from four to eight. Farmington will play in Section 1 with the Rochester and Lakeville schools. “We think we have a good shot and will key our sights set on that,” Pickens said. “We are a very fast team, and we have a great group of girls with some very good leaders. We will rely on our teamwork and attitude to win the close games.”

The Farmington girls lacrosse team is coming off by far its best season in school history. The Tigers tripled their career win total in 2012 going 9-5 overall after winning three games in 2010 and 2011 combined. “I think it really put us on the map finishing ranked 15th in the state,” coach Dan Pickens said. “We had many top teams contacting us and wanting to play us knowing that we are an up-and-coming program. We have much more confidence now. We all know that we can play as a top-tier team.” The girls lost about 85 percent of their scoring to graduation, but “we are ready to reload,” Pickens said. During the past four years, the entire program has grown. Last year the junior varsity team went 12-0-1, which is where many of the new varsity players will come from. “It won’t be easy to replace the great players we lost, but we will find our own identity and be ready to compete every game,” Pickens said. The Tigers will have just one senior Rathminee Email Andy Rogers at Hach on the team this year. andy.rogers@ecm-inc.com.

throw the shot put inside, but they have to be outside to throw the discus.” Of course, the weather is every Minnesota high school track coach’s problem, but now that Sharp oversees the whole Eastview roster, he’d like to see his athletes compete. The Lightning finished fourth overall and was the top Minnesota team at the All-American Invitational on April 6 in River Falls, Wis. Eastview was scheduled to compete in a meet at Rosemount High School on Tuesday. When the outdoor season finally starts, Sharp said he likes the Lightning’s chances of being competitive in the South Suburban Conference. Eastview finished third in the SSC last season. Two Eastview athletes went on to score points at the state meet, but both graduated last June.

In Tom Sharp’s previous role in the Eastview boys track and field program, a little snow and cold in the spring wouldn’t have bothered him. He coached the Lightning’s distance runners, and distance runners are used to dodging snowbanks and training in the elements. But it’s difficult for other track and field athletes to function unless it’s warm outside, and that’s a concern for Sharp, who’s in his first season as Eastview’s head coach. “I think we’ve had three outdoor meets cancelled already,” Sharp said last weekend. “We do what we can do. The distance runners, they’re OK. They’re used to being outside, although not being on the track isn’t ideal for doing interval work. “But our pole vaulters Email Mike Shaughnessy at can’t do a full run-up in- mike.shaughnessy@ecmdoors.

Repeat DWI offender pulled over by Theresa Malloy SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

A Florida woman pulled over by Rosemount police failed a field sobriety test and faces her third DWI with two prior convictions in 2005 and 2007. Christina Jean Wetch, 30, was also in possession of .57 grams of cocaine. The criminal complaint states Rosemount police responded to a report at 1:16 a.m. of an intoxicated driver attempting to start a fight in a Rosemount busi-

ness and tracked down the car with Wetch and a passenger inside. The officer smelled alcohol and noticed signs Wetch was intoxicated. Wetch allegedly denied she had been drinking, claiming to have just picked up her brother who was not the passenger in her car. The complaint says the passenger told the officer Wetch was intoxicated and would not listen to his protests of her driving. After failing a sobriety test, Wetch also had a blood

test. Wetch faces one felony charge for possession of the cocaine with a maximum penalty of five years and $10,000. Three gross misdemeanor charges are included for driving while intoxicated under the influence of controlled substances, alcohol and a combination of both. Each of these charges carry up to one year and $3,000 in fines.

Though he was known as a â&#x20AC;&#x153;tree huggerâ&#x20AC;? to some, Ted Wachter was no longhaired hippie. The longtime Eagan City Council m e m b e r, who died last week at Ted age 89, saw Wachter the value in preserving green space long before â&#x20AC;&#x153;going greenâ&#x20AC;? was considered cool. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was a man of strong convictions,â&#x20AC;? said Dakota County Commissioner Tom Egan, who served on the Eagan council alongside Wachter for 21 years. Wachter, who spent 41 years in public office, had a passion for preservation and creating opportunities for area youth. The Rosemount native was a proponent of preserving old trees and crafted for the city ordinances aimed at preserving old trees and planting new ones. Over the years, he became known to many as â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mr. Tree.â&#x20AC;? An avid history buff, Wachter was a founding member, chair and resident storyteller of the Eagan Historical Society. Wachter was instrumental in restoring Eaganâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 1914 town hall, located on Pilot Knob Road, and in creating Holz Farm park. The century-old town hall building, which had been used in the 1960s to store a snowplow, had dirt floors and a large garage

SHERRARD, from 1A In lieu of flowers, memorials are preferred to LifeSource, a nonprofit dedicated to organ and tissue donation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He will be missed greatly by both family and friends,â&#x20AC;? Chris Sherrard wrote. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The family would like to extend a special thank you to everyone for all that they have done to help the family and friends cope at this most difficult time.â&#x20AC;? Dalton was born July 27, 1994, to Chris and Marie Sherrard in Burnsville. He attended Parkview Elementary and Rosemount Middle School. Dalton loved to fish, and Chris Sherrard wrote that he often â&#x20AC;&#x153;out fishedâ&#x20AC;? his father and his second oldest brother, who owns a boat.

He liked to spend time with his family and friends, along with playing video games and listening to music. Chris Sherrard wrote that Dalton had an extensive knowledge of rock and roll history. His favorite bands were AC/ DC and Metallica. On Friday, the school reported that it made counselors available to students, faculty and staff members, along with specially trained personnel for students who needed special attention. Wollersheim said it might be a studentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s natural instincts to not be at school, but he encouraged students to come to school to find support among other students and staff. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We know you will join us in our concern and sympathy for the family and others who

are most affected,â&#x20AC;? Wollersheim wrote. Dalton is survived by parents Chris and Marie; siblings Paul (Michelle), Kyle (Carrie), Cameron (Katherine), Bryce and Logan; nephews Kyle Jr. and Ethan; grandparents Charlotte Sherrard and Peter and Dolores Kloskowski as well as other family and friends. He is preceded in death by grandfather Herbert Sherrard Sr. and brother Erich Ryan. A memorial service will be held at 11 a.m. Friday, April 19, at Church of the Risen Savior, 1501 County Road 42 E., Burnsville, with visitation one hour prior as well as 5-8 p.m. Thursday, April 18, also at church.

LEWIS, from 1A said Ann Sheridan, director of violence prevention and sexual assault at Lewis House. Lewis House offers services to women who experience domestic violence and sexual assault and might need housing or emergency support. Lewis House also works to train and educate community members to become advocates. The 40hour certificate program is offered twice a year and covers the basics to sexual assault forensic exams, prosecution, visits to Dakota County Community Corrections and sex crime investigations. A former offender talks to each training group and offers a different perspective. Over the years, the program has educated hundreds of people, Sheridan said, and attracts professionals, students and volunteers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s incredibly important,â&#x20AC;? Sheridan said.

Eagan house manager Judy Bowman went through the training and has found it helpful with her work. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Violence is violence,â&#x20AC;? she said, adding that the training has helped her understand why people might not be trusting for help and support when in this vulnerable situation. Eagan Lewis House coordinator Callie Olson said the role playing was particularly helpful with her training. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was helpful to know what victims go through,â&#x20AC;? she said. While the work at Lewis House is tough, Sheridan said it is rewarding to see women heal and start their lives over. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When they first start working with us, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no hope,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When they leave, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more hope.â&#x20AC;? Bowman said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s powerful to see someone so happy and free of the harness of violence and guilt.â&#x20AC;?

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month, so Lewis House staff are wearing teal nail polish, the color for sexual assault awareness. Lewis House in Eagan will have its fourth annual Sexual Assault Awareness Walk at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 24. Participants are asked to bring candles or flashlights if the weather is bad and join in a walk from Lewis House to a nearby park. The event is to remember victims, support survivors and shine light on the path of a violencefree community. Janine Montgomery will speak to participants about her own story of surviving sexual assault. For more information, call 651-452-7288. Email Theresa Malloy at theresa.malloy@ecm-inc.com.

Boarding ‘The Orphan Train’ theater and arts calendar FHS students transported back in time in spring play by Theresa Malloy SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Farmington High School students are putting the finishing touches on their spring production – finding stage shoes that fit, altering costumes, studying scripts, testing lighting and memorizing lines – hoping everything will be ready for opening night Thursday. “The Orphan Train” by Aurand Harris is a historical played based on the lives of orphans sent on trains from New York City to the Midwest at the turn of the 20th century hoping to be adopted by a family along the line. Directed by English teacher Beth Breiland, the play follows the lives of nine orphans on the train. “It was a really sad time,” said junior Lizzie Cummings who plays a lady.

Senior Mitch Delaney, who plays the orphan Danny, agreed and said there is a lot to learn from the story that still matters more than 100 years later. “A lot of things don’t change, especially for kids here in American today. They’re still homeless kids,” he said. “I’m hoping audiences learn something from the play,” Breiland said. The set is technically simple with a line of chairs representing the train and a minimalist background, but Breiland said the acting is not easy. The characters experience “waves of emotion” and must convey effectively to the audience. The other challenge for Breiland is half the cast has not been on stage before. She said she is pleased how everyone has worked hard in the past six weeks to prepare for the production. “It was nice to give everybody good parts and good personalities that they brought out,” Breiland said.

She said she told the students to treat the fictional characters like they are real people, adding a level of authenticity and respect to the acting. “It’s a lot different with the gestures and everything that differs from back then,” Delaney said. The cast is made up of 21 students, including a 6-year-old student, and five crew members. “My hope is that (students) learn something about our country and history. They learn about the history of children in America,” Breiland said. “Hopefully people leave saying, ‘This was interesting.’” “The Orphan Train” runs three nights at 7 p.m. Thursday, April 18, until Saturday, April 20, at the Boeckman Middle School Auditorium, 800 Denmark Ave. Tickets are available at the ticket window 45 minutes before the show begins.

Thisweekend Percussion ensemble Crash is crazy creative Group set to perform April 28 in Lakeville by Andrew Miller SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Twin Cities composer Mary Ellen Childs pulled out all the stops for her percussion ensemble Crash. Among the performance pieces are â&#x20AC;&#x153;DrumRoll,â&#x20AC;? which features drummers on wheels, and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sight of Hand,â&#x20AC;? which incorporates hamboningstyle dance and baseball coaching signals. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also the wild visual spectacle of the eponymous piece, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Crash,â&#x20AC;? with six cymbal players on roller blades and other modes of transportation. Crash is set to take the stage of the Lakeville Area Arts Center on Sunday, April 28, as part of the ongoing Highview Hills Coffee Concert series.

The concert will be just the second time in the concert seriesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; six seasons to feature a percussion ensemble. Focused mainly on classical music, the series delved into the percussion arena for the first time when it hosted the Minnesota Percussion Trio in April 2009. For Crash, as with all the concerts, there will be complimentary coffee and refreshments in the seriesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; informal cabaret setting. Crash founder and composer Childs, who conceived of the group as an integration of music and dance and theater, will introduce and discuss her work at the Lakeville show. In addition to her work with Crash, Childs also composes â&#x20AC;&#x153;purely musicalâ&#x20AC;? concert works and has received commissions from the Kronos Quar-

tet, the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra and the Walker Art Center. Her CD releases include â&#x20AC;&#x153;Kilterâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dream House.â&#x20AC;? A fan of the accordion, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s created about a dozen works that include the instrument. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s coffee concert series concludes May 19 with the Bell Alma Duo of Kathy Kienzle, principal harp of the Minnesota Orchestra, and Michele Frisch, principal flute of the Minnesota Opera. All the concerts are on Sundays at 2 p.m. at the arts center at 20965 Holyoke Ave. in downtown Lakeville. Tickets are $14.50 for adults, $12 for students and seniors, and are available online at www.LakevilleAreaArtsCenter.com.
