The Farmington Parks and Recreation Advisory Commission began talks about a creating a new aquatic facility to replace the existing pool, more than four decades old, at a workshop on May 1. “The clock is ticking on the existing pool, and we give it five years maximum,” said Randy Distad, Parks and Recreation director.

Because of this, the City Council has identified looking at options for a new facility as part of its five-year strategic plan. Commission Member David McMillen said he believes an aquatic facility is an important part of the Farmington community. McMillen said its location in the southern part of the city is a problem to consider, especially because more growth has shifted north since the pool was built. The commission identified Jim Bell Park and Preserve in the northern part of Farmington as a potential location

Throughout much of his 31 years with Rosemount’s fire department, Scott Aker was teaching grade-school students in Hastings. Unusual as the mixed title was when he started as chief in 1988, the schoolteacher/fireman found his dual roles each informed the other more often than most would think. With a master’s degree in education, Aker’s teaching ability translated well to directing the oncall volunteer firefighters in training, recruitment and daily interaction. “As a teacher, I had 30 little people from all different walks of life,” Aker said. “It was my job to try to get them united.” Connecting with a diverse collection of firefighters drew upon the same skills of leadership,

On a snowy Friday, May 2, crews at the Dakota County Fairgrounds were trudging through soggy grounds as snow fell to set up for its first event of the season, the Minnesota Scottish Fair.

Desperate for money, woman allegedly embezzles money from her Lakeville bank employer by Theresa Malloy SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

The Dakota County Attorney’s Office charged Leah Marie Bremner of Farmington with felony theft by swindle for $95,000 at the Lakeville bank where she worked. “This is a significant economic crime and is the 19th theft over $50,000 in the last five years in Dakota County,� County Attorney Jim Backstrom said in a press release.

Bremner, 31, worked at the bank and allegedly took the money in incremental amounts between May and October 2010. The criminal complaint details the following: On Oct. 4, 2010, Lakeville police responded to a call of internal bank theft. Bremner’s supervisor confronted her about discrepancies in her teller and vault entries. She admitted that she stole money from the bank because her husband recently lost his job

New library manager hired at Robert Trail Frances Veit hopes to continue to expand the definition of a library by Andy Rogers SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

The definition of a library has evolved over the years. It’s gone from a quiet place of study to a bustling center with rows of computers, daily activities and, of course, shelves of books. There’s something for seemingly everybody. “It’s a community gathering place,� said Frances Veit, the new Robert Trail Library branch manager in Rosemount. “Our mission is to enrich and educate. From kids craft programs, to adult reading, to computer classes, all of those programs fit into that whole life aspect.� In April, Veit replaced Jamie Jurgensen, who is now the youth and popular materials manager at the Dakota County Library headquarters in Eagan. “I’ve gotten a very warm welcome, and I’m very impressed with the Dakota County Library system,� Veit said. “There’s just a lot of support, resources and rich infrastructure. The community is so engaged with the library.� Veit will be responsible for keeping the branch running smoothly while managing staff and dealing with customer concerns. She’s also a key player in collaborations and programming, something that has been quite successful since the branch opened. THEFT, from 2A sion,� and “I am starting to face the reality of what I did and it is something I will have to pay the consequence for which I am prepared to do.� An initial audit revealed $95,000 in cash was missing. The investigation revealed that Bremner falsified daily entries

She has a strong passion for helping children and literacy, and she said she’s excited to branch out into adult programming. Libraries could have gone by the wayside like many video rental and book stores, but they adapted and flourished, Veit says. “That’s exciting, considering what I thought when I first got my degree,� Veit said. “I thought, ‘Oh no. What is this going to look like in 10 years?’ � In Dakota County, it seems to be growing. Some libraries within the system are being remodeled. “The most interesting thing to me is that we still get a lot of questions for librarians at the information desk,� Veit said. “People think everybody just Googles things now, but they still go to the library and ask.� Before coming to Rosemount, she has worked in academic science and public libraries, most recently at Buckham Memorial Library in Faribault for the past four years as head of youth services. She holds a bachelor’s degree in biology and English from Carleton College in Northfield, and she received her master’s degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Library and Information Studies. The current building for the Robert Trail Library opened in 2009 as the latest in the nine-member Dakota County Library system.

One of those big upcoming projects is the quarterly lobby art displays by the Rosemount Area Arts Council. A new exhibit is opening May 19 featuring high school students’ work. Veit hopes to grow those community partnerships and relationships. “There’s a wonderful Friends (of Robert Trail Library) group that’s doing a lot of great work,� Veit said. “Rosemount Area Arts Council has been a great friend to the library, too. It’s been exciting.� She’s only been at this since April 22, so she still in the process of meeting people, but she’s excited about the potential in Rosemount. “I’m an ideas person,� Veit said. “I’m not afraid to take on new projects. I’m not afraid of change. I’m really interested in partnerships, Email Andy Rogers with the library relatively new, and andy.rogers@ecm-inc.com.

that allowed her through time to take cash from the bank while keeping the drawer balanced.

Opinion Stadium financing a conundrum, but project is worth it When the Minnesota Sports Facility Authority unveils the design for the new Minnesota Vikings stadium on May 13 at the Guthrie Theatre, the public will get a glimpse of the grand edifice that is planned to be built over the next three years. When ground is broken on the Metrodome site in Minneapolis this fall, the public will know for certain that the $975 million stadium will be built. What is less certain, however, is the funding piece for the stadium that was approved by the Legislature in 2012. For stadium fans, it will take patience to wait until July 2016 when the facility is slated for completion. It will take an equal amount of patience on the part of the public and legislators to feel comfortable that funding is available. Much discussion has emerged over the lack of tax dollars flowing to the state from electronic pulltabs, one of the key pieces in funding the stadium. The second vital funding source from charitable gambling venues is electronic bingo. E-bingo is just now coming on line. There is good reason for funding fears. E-pulltabs have not generated the funding once predicted by the Minnesota Charitable Gambling Board, and the board admits it. The state did not anticipate the snail’s process of establishing charitable sites for sales of electronic pulltabs. Electronic bingo almost became a forgotten partner in the funding piece. For various reasons, many smaller charitable gambling sites have said no to electronic pulltabs. Some have identified startup costs and fees, in addition to state taxes, as major roadblocks. Other say e-pulltabs wipe away the social fun a group of friends may have sifting through a stack of paper pulltabs. It may not be such with e-bingo.

ECM Editorial The state was remiss in not identifying the electronic pulltab concerns early on. Such action may have helped lawmakers a year ago as the legislation was crafted. For stadium opponents, the door is now open for a barrage of criticism, including calls by lawmakers to redo the agreement with the Vikings. Fool’s errands of the like serve no good purpose. Those taking shots at the Vikings seem to ignore that the NFL club will pay an estimated $15 million per year to the sports facility authority, including $8.5 million in rent alone. Other user groups will contribute $2 million throughout the year. State leaders from Gov. Mark Dayton on down have long preached patience as the funding mechanism for the stadium unfolds. We would agree that patience is needed, but faced with many unknowns it is worrisome to just assume the tax dollars from charitable gambling will somehow magically appear in the future. But we give state leaders the benefit of the doubt that patience is needed through the balance of this year. As stated in interviews with this editorial board, officials of the gambling board and the sports authority remain confident that the funding picture will see major improvements. The number of active charitable gambling sites offering electronic pulltabs is growing, and more game manufacturers and distributors are being approved by the state. The same holds true for electronic bingo. The impact of e-bingo linked to hundreds of sites could be a game changer.

And patience must be the rule based on the unknowns. It is still uncertain the extent of the first bond sale slated for late summer or early fall. The state continues to crunch numbers to determine if all or part of the financing bond is issued this year. That decision will determine the actual debt service and the amount the state will need to repay next year. Early state estimates said debt service payment could be as high as $30 million a year. Make no mistake about this. The bonds are backed by the state’s general fund, and any shortage in stadium debt service must come off the top. By law, it will be the Legislature that must each year appropriate dollars from the general fund to address any debt service shortage. Failing to do so would result in the state defaulting on its obligation. The legislation approved last year includes backup funding sources. A Minnesota State Lottery game earmarked for the stadium is projected to provide $3 million a year for bond support. Once the stadium is open, a tax on luxury suites would bring in another $2 million a year. A proposal removed from last year’s bill that called for a sales tax on sports memorabilia could have produced as much as $19 million a year depending on the extent of the tax. The memorabilia tax is again being considered this session and should be passed if lawmakers want to hedge their bet. It amounts to a user fee that is paid by those closely associated with professional and Division I collegiate athletics. Another factor that has received little attention is that state charitable proceeds are growing by 6-7 percent this year. The electronic games are certainly a factor here while paper pulltabs continue to sell well. While tax income from electronic pulltabs

is now projected to pull in an estimated $1.5 million this year, the total tax contribution from all forms of charitable gaming could well top $7 million. And with the egames likely to grow, this estimate would seem conservative. State officials and lawmakers must remain vigilant in monitoring this process over the remaining months of 2013. By year’s end, there should be a clear picture of the funding levels that can be expected from charitable gambling. If red flags continue to fly, more serious action will be needed from legislators. If serious funding holes are evident, racino backers are ready to plug that hole with tax revenues generated by slot machines at Running Aces Harness Park in the north metro. It is not surprising that the funding picture for the stadium has become a hotbutton issue. It was controversial a year ago and will remain so. With the general fund potentially at risk for a financial hit in 2014, now is no time for state officials to relax as revenue streams for the stadium are rolled out. They need to make sure the projections work. What should not be forgotten are the many benefits from three years of a huge construction project that will produce 7,500 jobs and pump huge amounts of money into the economy. The end result will be a multipurpose stadium, with all the bells and whistles, that will serve Minnesota well every month of the year and not just in the fall when the Vikings call it home.

Balancing work and family: It’s about time by John Kline SPECIAL TO SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

More and more Minnesotans are telling me, “It’s about time.” A South St. Paul mom and dad are having a difficult time balancing work and family. They feel time spent with their children – something we all dearly covet and our kids direly need – is harder to come by. A member of the Minnesota National Guard deployed overseas can’t stop worrying about a spouse juggling work and parenting responsibilities halfway across the world. A Shakopee college student struggles to work full time while pursuing an undergraduate degree. An Eagan couple joins more than 50 million workers who spend time each week caring for an aging relative while meeting the demands of a job. For many Minnesotans, supporting a family is about more than providing an income. It’s about spending time with loved ones, cherishing good moments and caring for each other during difficult times. For nearly 30 years, public-sector workers have been able to choose and accrue paid time off or “comp time” instead of cash wages for working overtime hours. As a result, state and local employees have more opportunities to spend time with their families and attend to their needs. Unfortunately, the Fair Labor Standards Act denies many private-sector workers this fundamental choice. The

Guest Columnist

John Kline 75-year-old law assumes everyone would choose more money in the bank over time with family. No doubt some workers would seize an opportunity to earn a few extra dollars, perhaps to cover an unexpected home repair or purchase a student’s school supplies. But others may welcome the chance for additional paid time off to see a child hit a home run, visit with an elderly parent or be with a loved one about to deploy overseas. Although this compensatory time system has been available in the public sector since 1985, private-sector employers can be sued or fined by the federal government for extending the same benefit. That’s not fair to millions of hardworking Americans. A West St. Paul dad shouldn’t miss his daughter’s soccer game because of outdated federal policy. An Apple Valley mom shouldn’t miss her son’s little league ball game because of a law written during the Great Depression. A Red Wing family shouldn’t have to confront unnecessary barriers in order to care for their grandmother. When it comes to overtime compensation, workers should decide what’s

best for their families. Legislation moving through Congress, known as the Working Families Flexibility Act of 2013, will help bring an antiquated law into the 21st century. The legislation would allow private-sector employers to offer employees working overtime hours a choice between comp time and cash wages – helping to level the playing field with their counterparts in the public sector. Some mistakenly think this effort will lead to more intrusion by the federal government. I appreciate the perspective of Americans who critically view lawmakers through that lens, and I share their skepticism. I also believe hardworking Americans, not the government, are what make our country great. This common-sense legislation will reduce the role of the federal government in the nation’s workplaces, not increase it. Under the proposal, the use of comp time would be completely voluntary for both workers and their employers. If a worker decides some additional income is what’s most important, then that’s what he or she will receive. If an employer believes administering comp time would interfere with his or her business, then that is a decision Washington will not second-guess. The bill simply removes an unnecessary barrier that prevents employers and workers from making these choices for themselves. Make no mistake: I will continue to advocate for a more efficient and effective government. The Working Families Flex-

ibility Act is an important part of that effort. As chairman of the House Education and the Workforce Committee, I am proud to help move this bill to the floor of the House of Representatives. In the coming days, the people’s elected representative will have a choice of their own to make: Support less government and greater freedom for workers by voting “yes,” or defend the outdated status quo by voting “no” on this sensible proposal. Minnesotans sacrifice a great deal to provide for their families. As a father of two and grandfather of four, I know well the challenges that come with juggling home and work. I understand the difficult choices hardworking American families make every day. We can make life a little bit easier by removing barriers that deny workers the choice and flexibility they need to thrive at home and work. I look forward to leading the charge in Congress for this legislation on behalf of the Minnesotans I represent and all Americans. Washington must come together on this worthwhile effort to eliminate this federal barrier in our workplaces and help provide more freedom for our workers. As I tell my colleagues in Washington: It’s about time. John Kline is chairman of the House Education and the Workforce Committee. He also serves on the Armed Services Committee.

$1.8 billion in higher taxes. They have proposed to expand the sales tax to clothing, over-thecounter medications and auto repairs, among other things. They will place a higher tax burden on public utilities so energy costs will go up. They added a 13 percent tax to sports memorabilia. Parents will pay that tax if their son or daughter plays on a rec team that uses licensed jerseys or caps. The highest income tax rate in Minnesota went up to 9.4 percent from its current 7.85 percent. So at least we stuck the rich there, right? Wrong! The new 9.4 percent rate applies to individuals starting at just over $79,000 and married joint filers starting just over $140,000. Don’t misun-

derstand me, $140,000 is a very good income. But I really don’t know that a family of four or five could be considered “rich” at that income level. Under the current tax plan literally every single Minnesotan will pay more in taxes. And what are we going to get for it? More of the same. There is not one big item of reform in this bill, or in any budget bill. This is the same old song Democrats have been singing since I was a kid. The solution to every problem: just throw more money at it. That has not worked in the past and it will not work now. DAVE THOMPSON Lakeville Senate District 58 - Farmington, Lakeville

A Cottage Grove man faces seven charges for a Sept. 22, 2012, car crash in Rosemount that sent two people to the hospital. George Deano Tompkins, 58, had bloodalcohol content level of 0.27, more than three times the legal limit in Minnesota of 0.08. Since 1993 Tompkins has had five drivingunder-the-influence convictions. The Sept. 22, 2012, head-on collision on Highway 55 near County Road 42 sent two people to the hospital for multiple visible injuries. According to the criminal complaint, Tompkins smelled of alcohol and failed a preliminary breath test. Tompkins was taken to the hospital. He faces two felony DWI charges, each carrying a maximum penalty of seven years and $14,000. One gross misdemeanor charge is related to violation of a restricted driver’s license. The other four charges are relating to criminal vehicular operation resulting in bodily harm while above the 0.08 legal limit. These gross misdemeanors each hold up to a year sentence and $3,000 fine. Email Theresa theresa.malloy@ecm-inc.com.

A December 2012 nocontact order was given to Rourke following a Dec. 10, 2012, incident when Rourke held the victim hostage and threatened to kill himself. A police SWAT team responded to this incident. Felony third-degree burglary holds a sentence of up to five years and $10,000. Gross misdemeanor stalking can result in as much as a year and $1,000 fine. The two other charges are misdemeanors for tampering with a motor vehicle and violating an order for protection.

AKER, from 1A motivation and empathy that he learned in the classroom. With a combined 65 years in both jobs, Aker has touched hundreds, probably thousands, of lives teaching third-, fifthand sixth-graders to develop basic skills and adults life-saving skills.

In the family Aker grew up in a firefighting family. His father and uncle were both professional firefighters with the St. Paul department. Aker said that upbringing led to him being even more fascinated with firefighting than other little boys his age. “I saw how (my father) helped people,” he said. “I always had an interest in that.” That interest continued after Aker’s father died in 1976 while on a fire call at the age of 52. Six years later Aker applied to become a volunteer firefighter in Rosemount after moving to town in 1979.

As a 22-year-old, Aker said he thought he was invincible and never really consciously thought about his father’s death in terms of his decision. It was not as though Aker was looking for something to do. He was working toward a master’s degree in education at the University of Minnesota while teaching in Hastings and helping raise a newborn daughter. Despite all of his commitments, Aker quickly rose through the ranks. Within a year or so, he was the department’s secretary, then he was elevated to lieutenant, in another couple of years he became a captain, and was elected chief by his peers in 1988. “It was quite an honor,” Aker said. “I did the best that I could.” Aker said he floundered some in his first few months, since he didn’t have much experience running a fire scene, but succeeded because he was able to surround himself with good people. At the time, there were

35 firefighters making about 140 calls a year. Last year, the department responded to 725 calls, and it has 39 firefighters currently. Aker noted that the force was up to 48 last year before a round of retirements that included himself and two others who joined the crew in his class of 1982. He also said there are five candidates currently being tested. Aker said the primary motivation for people to volunteer for the department has remained constant through the years. “For 30 years, I’ve been involved in these interviews,” he said. “People say they want to be part of the community and give back to the community in some way or another.” A distant second is the personal financial benefit. For each call firefighters respond to, they receive $10 each. It takes a long commitment – 10 years – to be vested in the department’s pension and 20 years to be fully-vested.

Change is constant sophisticated, as they are like I always had from my Few jobs have transformed as much in the past 30 years as that of a firefighter. When he joined the department, Aker said he was issued a helmet, long rubber coat and rubber boots that went to his hips. The gear changed a few times in his first few years, and now has evolved to use lightweight but tough fire-resistant materials. Today firefighters wouldn’t think of entering a burning home without a self-contained breathing apparatus and at least one crew member with a helmet equipped with a thermal-imaging camera, which started to become the norm in the mid- to late-1990s. Aker notes that the department had to raise funds to purchase such technology and that Rosemount businesses, service groups and residents have been great in financially supporting such efforts. Fire response vehicles also have become more

equipped with such items as on-board computers for navigation, advanced firstresponse medical equipment and many safety features. The department also grew during his time to open Fire Station No. 2 east of Highway 3 on Connemara Trail in 2007. Through all the changes, Aker has remained committed to the city. Firefighters are expected to respond to at least 30 percent of calls, but Aker said he’s averaged a 60 percent response. In the past four years since he retired from teaching, he said his percentage has been as high as 96. He feels the department will receive that same kind of commitment from its new fire chief, Richard Schroeder. “He talked to me extensively about what is involved,” Aker said. “His wife has talked to my wife. ... A family has to be supportive of firefighters and those in the chief position. I know he has that support

family.”

Retirement Aker said he is handling his first week into retirement pretty well, though he admits he misses the interaction with the other firefighters. It’s also a little more difficult since the oneyear subscription to automatic fire-call alerts on his smartphone hasn’t expired. “It’s tough not to keep tabs on things,” he said. “I’ve had some mixed emotions.” It’s not that Aker is short on things to do. He said he’s been enjoying spending time at the family’s lake cabin in Wisconsin east of Taylor’s Falls. With his three children living in the Twin Cities, there’s lots of family time, too, along with helping them with home improvement projects. Email Tad Johnson at tad.johnson@ecm-inc.com.

Sports Farmington softball putting on a show Doubleheaders no problem as Farmington jumps out to Missota lead by Andy Rogers SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

The Farmington softball players figured they would remain competitive this spring with several key returning players after making an appearance at state in 2012. With a 10-1 start, the Tigers have almost exceeded those expectations, especially the way the girls have been winning. In 11 games, the Tigers have outscored opponents seven-to-one. After nearly a month of cancellations, several of Farmington’s games

have been switched to doubleheaders, which seems to play right into the Tigers’ hands. “Eight games this week is a bit crazy, but the kids are game ready,” head coach Paul Harrington said. “The doubleheaders are very draining, but have handled them well so far. As the games go by, we will need to learn quickly and will have to make adjustments on the fly.” Farmington defeated New Prague 3-2 and 10-0 on April 10. Two days later the girls defeated Holy Angels 12-1 and 13-

0. Against Red Wing on Monday, Farmington got the bats going again, defeating the Wingers 14-4 and 6-3 with 25 hits between the two games. The girls got a sweep again on Tuesday against Northfield, winning 9-1 and 5-3. “Wow, we have had a real balanced attack, with several of our girls leading the way,” Harrington said. “At the beginning of the season, we asked our kids to step it up at the plate. Up until this point, they have done just that.” Ashley Betzold continues to throw strikes,

notching an ERA of 0.40, and knocks the ball around at the plate. “Being a senior, we would expect Ashley to continue down that path and have a great season finish and playoff run,” Harrington said. But it’s tough for one pitcher to handle all those doubleheaders. “That would be a bit too much for anyone,” Harrington said. That’s where Maddie Muelken has come in. She has two victories this season throwing 15 innings in four games. “That has been a huge

help and allows us to spare Ashley for a few innings,” Harrington said. She’s also been a factor at the plate. But it’s not just the Betzold and Muelken show. Toni Hunsiger, Amber Doyle, Carly Esselman, Molly Berdan and Taylor Yousse have had their moments to shine in the batters’ box as well. The girls will welcome Rochester Century to town on Friday for a rare non-conference contest. As far as deciding the Missota Conference title? It might come down to

the last game. The doubleheaders start back on Tuesday with Chaska and Thursday with Shakopee, the final night of the regular season. Both teams are considered contenders with Farmington for the Missota Conference title. The Section 1AAA tournament is scheduled to begin on May 22. The quarterfinals, semifinals, finals and losers’ bracket will run from May 25-30 in Austin. Email Andy Rogers at andy.rogers@ecm-inc. com.

Dakota United wants a chance to meet the Robins PI Division softball team is undefeated by Mike Shaughnessy SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

The emphasis in adapted sports is on participation over winning trophies. Dakota United’s PI Division softball players understand that, but still, they want it all. The Hawks are steaming toward what looks to be an inevitable return to the state tournament. They won their first five games and didn’t allow more than one run in any of their first four. They didn’t meet their expectations at the last two state tournaments, so this year they have their eyes on the prize. “The last two years we lost our first game at the state tournament,” coach Brett Kosidowski said after the Hawks played Burnsville/Farmington/ Lakeville/New Prague on Tuesday. “Then we won the consolation trophy. The consolation trophy’s cool, but it’s not quite what we want.” What the Hawks would like is a chance to play Robbinsdale/Hopkins/ Mound Westonka, the program that has dominated PI Division adapted sports the last several years. The Robins, who have won four consecutive state softball titles, play in the North Conference

and Dakota United plays in the South Conference. Typically, there are few crossover games during the regular season. “We haven’t played (the Robins) in four or five years,” Kosidowski said. “They’re a great team. Marcus (Onsum, the Robins’ head coach) knows what he’s doing. But our goal is to take them down.” The Hawks want a chance because they believe they have one of the most skilled teams they’ve ever had. It starts with shortstop Grayson Nicolay, a ninth-grader who might be the state’s best adapted athlete in the PI Division. Senior Lantz Estep and junior Jaayson Meyer are veteran outfielders. In adapted softball, teams are required to use at least two wheelchairbound players in the field. Dakota United this year has only two “chairs,” meaning it has to fill the rest of the spots with ambulatory players. “And we’re flooded with ambulatory players,” Kosidowski said. Riley Wisnewski, a seventh-grader, is playing in “short right,” which is more like an infield position. Infield defense is critical in adapted softball, Kosidowski said.

“With Riley in short right, we really have no holes in our infield,” the coach said. The Hawks scored at least 10 runs in each of their first four games, employing a strategy that emphasizes hitting the ball on the ground. “If you hit too many balls in the air, you’re going to be in trouble. Good teams will catch it if you hit it in the air,” Kosidowski said. The Hawks, who play at St. Paul Humboldt on May 14, have all but two of their players attending District 196 schools. When Burnsville, Farmington and Lakeville left the Dakota United cooperative several years ago to form their own program, it cut into the Hawks’ depth. Kosidowski, a physical education teacher in District 196, recruited students still eligible to play for Dakota United into the adapted sports program. He also operates an adapted sports camp in the summer. The result, at least in softball, is a team that could be good for a long time. Only three of the 16 players on the Hawks’ roster are seniors.

AAA True Team finals May 17 at Stillwater High School. Rosemount was third at the state finals last year, took first in 2011 and placed second in 2010 and 2009. Rosemount senior Trevor Capra finished first in the 3,200 meters in 9 minutes, 33.09 seconds, more than 40 seconds ahead of the runner-up. Payton Otterdahl (518 1/2) and Danny Kleiber (146-9) were the shot put and discus winners. The Irish also won the 4x100 relay in 43.52.

Prior Lake won the girls team competition with 967 points, 48 more than second-place Eagan. Rosemount was fifth of nine teams with 658 points. Rosemount, Apple Valley, Eagan, Eastview, Burnsville, Prior Lake, Bloomington Jefferson, Bloomington Kennedy and Shakopee took part in the Section 3AAA True Team meet.

Could Rosemount softball be playoff sleeper? Irish cool off previously unbeaten Lightning by Mike Shaughnessy SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

By cooling off one of the hottest softball teams in the South Suburban Conference, Rosemount might have given itself a glimpse of its capabilities. Eastview came to Monday’s game at Rosemount with a 6-0 record and had flexed some muscle at the plate by scoring at least six runs five times. Rosemount pitcher Gabby Sprang, an eighth-grader, kept the Lightning off the scoreboard until the seventh inning of the Irish’s 4-1 victory. “Gabby did some great pitching and we got some timely hitting,” Rosemount coach Tiffany Rose said. “I think a lot of our girls were disappointed with the way we started the season. They have some big goals, and they weren’t doing some of the things they think they’re capable of. This was a very big win for us.” The Irish were 4-3 overall and 2-3 in the South Suburban going into Tuesday’s game at Eagan. The victory over Eastview – and any others Rosemount can add this week – also could potentially be important for Section 3AAA tournament seeding. If the section playoffs seem like they’re on the doorstep, it’s because they are. The first round of the Section 3AAA tourney is Wednesday, May 15, when the teams seeded fifth through 12th play in a single-elimination round. The winners join the top four seeds in the double-elimination part of the tournament beginning May 17 at Dred Scott Fields in Bloomington. The pitchers – Rosemount’s Sprang and Eastview’s Kerrigan Hoshaw – kept Monday’s game scoreless until the bottom of the fourth inning, when Irish outfield-

Hannah Esselman fields a ground ball to second base during Rosemount’s softball game against Eastview on Monday afternoon. The Irish won 4-1. (Photo by Mike Shaughnessy) er Melissa Seldon doubled to score the game’s first run. Sprang drove in a run with a single in the fifth inning, and Sarah Jacobs and Maddy Moran had RBI singles in the sixth. Some airtight Rosemount defense kept Eastview off the scoreboard until the Lightning scored once in the top of the seventh. Even though the season was delayed by bad weather and Rosemount struggled once it did start playing games, Rose said attitude is one thing she hasn’t had to worry about. “One thing I know about these girls is they love to play with each other,” Rose said. “All the postponements were frustrating for everybody, but this is a tight group. When we have a chance to practice, we can spend the time actually practicing instead of sorting out other issues.” Practice time will be

limited this week. Unless there are more weatherrelated postponements, the Irish will play seven games in six days. That included road games against both Bloomington schools on Wednesday. Saturday, Rosemount is scheduled for a non-conference doubleheader in Cannon Falls, and the regular-season finale is 4:30 p.m. Monday at Lakeville North. Then, unless the Irish earn a top-four seed in the section, they’ll have one day to prepare for their playoff opener. “It’s going to be a very busy week,” Rose said. “Gabby probably won’t pitch all of those games. We’ll use a (designated player) for somebody every game. We’ll have to see how it goes, but we should be able to use all our players.” Email Mike Shaughnessy at mike.shaughnessy@ecminc.com.

Dakota United chasing CI softball title Hawks succeed by scoring runs in bunches by Mike Shaughnessy SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

After coming within one victory of the state CI Division adapted softball championship three of the last four years, Dakota United is anxious to get it done this time. Usually the Hawks’ toughest competition comes from the northern Twin Cities suburbs. This year, however, it could be just down the road. Burnsville/Farmington/ Lakeville, also known as the Blazing Cats, defeated Dakota United 8-5 in the Hawks’ season opener April 10. Dakota United was missing two starters in that game. The rematch proved to be tough as well. The Hawks defeated the Blazing Cats 7-5 on Monday at Eagan High School, running their record to 8-1 and handing Burnsville/ Farmington/Lakeville its first loss. High schools in Burnsville, Farmington and Lakeville used to be part of the Dakota United cooperative before they formed their own program. There’s a rivalry between the Hawks and Blazing Cats now, but it’s not acrimonious. “They’re competitive, but once the game is over 95 percent of the players are happy and shaking hands,” said Dakota United head coach Mary Hautman. “A lot of the kids on both teams do things together outside of school.” Dakota United, which includes all of the District 196 high schools, has outscored opponents 118-

24 during its eight-game winning streak. If the Hawks can fend off the rival in their own back yard, they will aim at the state championship again. Dakota United reached the CI Division championship game in 2009, 2011 and 2012, only to lose each time. Last year the Hawks lost 7-2 to a senior-dominated AnokaHennepin team. This year Dakota United is relying on seniors such as Ricky Arends and Joe Sandey, who helped lead the Hawks’ adapted soccer team to a CI Division state title last fall. Arends, the team’s pitcher, had four home runs and three triples going into Monday’s game against Eagan. Sandey solidifies the Hawks’ infield, as does sophomore Carl Fagre, the team leader at turning double plays. “Joe and Carl are such natural athletes, and Ricky has worked really hard to improve,” Hautman said. Sophomore Tyler Lupie-Voss, a first-year player, has settled in at first base. Juniors Andrew Brankley and Zach Schlosser moved up from the junior varsity to contribute to the varsity team. Emma Roiger, a seventh-grader, has played multiple positions. “She’s tiny, but she’s a scrapper,” Hautman said of Roiger. The Hawks have a little more than 40 players in CI Division softball. That would be the envy of most other programs in the state, but at Dakota United, it means participation has dropped a bit. In years

past, Hautman said, the Hawks had enough players to fill two junior varsity CI Division teams. This year, there’s one JV team. But, in other places, a JV team is a luxury. Hautman said softball remains Dakota United’s most popular adapted sport. Not having to run the entire game – as is often required in adapted soccer and floor hockey – is attractive to some students, Hautman said. So, too, is the Hawks’ success. Even after they lose players such as Arends and Sandey after this season, there are more in the pipeline, making it likely that more state tournament appearances are in Dakota United’s future. This year’s state tournament is May 31-June 1 at Coon Rapids High School. Dakota United, currently second in the South Conference, hasn’t officially qualified yet but seems a lock to get in. The Hawks will try to break a streak of domination by north suburban schools at the CI Division tournament. The last six programs to win the CI title – and 11 of the last 13 – have come from the northern suburbs. “The north division is one tough division,” Hautman said. “But I think the south schools have come back strong. I think it’s fairly even now.” Email Mike Shaughnessy at mike.shaughnessy@ecm-inc.com.

SIMON WILL GIVE YOU MUCH JOY! Meet Simon, a 10-11 month old neutered male. He is quite handsome with his athletic wild cat look. He has the most loving disposition, and is tons of fun with loads of personality! Simon and his sister were rescued 2 months ago when they were found wandering in a field. Simon does not kiss up to strangers right away but once he calls you his own then you are in for a huge treat! His foster parents’ exact words: “Once Simon knows you then snuggling, petting and belly rubs are the absolute best things in the world! Every time we come to see him he greets us at the door. As soon as we sit down he jumps in our laps for a big snuggle. After that, it’s play time and he chases his feather wand until he’s exhausted. He has awesome ninja talents! His acrobatic feats are breathtaking!�

Thisweekend WAR COMES TO FARMINGTON World War II re-enactment event runs May 18-19 at Dakota City by Andrew Miller SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

The fog of war is descending on Farmington, and you’re invited. A World War II re-enactment event at Dakota City Heritage Village May 18-19 will see mock European Theater battles staged by living history groups portraying Axis and Allied soldiers. As for the outcome of the faux skirmishes, those rooting for the Allies won’t be disappointed. “The battle scenario is set near the end of the war, outside a German-occupied railroad depot,” explained event coordinator Jon Boroom, who also participates in the mock battles. “The Germans will be milling about near the depot, the Russians will attack, and the Americans will come in and finish it off.” The weekend’s activities run from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday. Mock battles are sched-

uled in the morning and afternoon each day. The event, now in its fourth year, also features soldier encampments, weapons and military vehicle displays – including a Sherman tank and Russian armored vehicle – and talks by World War II veterans. A military vehicle parade through downtown Farmington returns this year, and is sizing up to be bigger than ever. “We’ve opened the parade up to civilian vehicles from that era, and we’ve invited local car clubs to come take part,” Boroom said. New this year will be a World War II-era fashion show with civilian and women’s military attire from the 1940s. A military swap meet also is planned, with vendors selling original and reproduction military uniforms and equipment. Minnesota’s Beyond the Yellow Ribbon organization will be on hand throughout the weekend to provide information
