Fire department seeks more funds Requests encompass an increased clothing allowance, funding plan for outdated emergency vehicles by Theresa Malloy SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

The Farmington Fire Department is requesting increased funding from the City Council for long-term needs including retirement funds, clothing allowances and vehicle purchases. At a council workshop on Monday, July 8, firefighters expressed a need to set aside money to avoid potential financial rifts in the future. The fire department currently has about 17 people who could retire within the next few years, which means the city has to pay a pension. “It’s very scary,” said Jeff Allbee, president of the Farmington Fire Relief As-
sociation. “When we’re talking worst case scenario, we are seeing multiple people retiring at the same time.” If all were to retire at once, “the potential is an alland-out disaster,” Lt. Mark Arens said. Some pensions are as high as $183,000. Projected collected pension payouts based on retirement discussions could be as much as $797,000 in some years. This would potentially run down current funds. The city has made minimum payments to the retirement fund, which was at more than 100 percent in 2006.

The Farmington Fire Department has requested more funding from the city, including funds that could be set aside in a CIP for emergency vehicle maintenance. Currently, 11 vehicles in the fleet are missing or pushed past replacements. Past councils have deferred the purchase of new vehicles due to budget constraints. The most recent purchase was a Pierce Impel Pumper Fire Engine bought earlier this year to replace a 1986 Ford Rescue Truck. Vehicles such as the one seen here at the 2013 Dew Days parade make appearances at community events as well as for emergency response. (Photo by Theresa Malloy)

NEWS ECM Food Drive July 15-26 Happiness is a full tummy. The ECM Community Action Council invites local residents to contribute to its annual food drive this month. Frequently, food shelves are in most need during the summer months. Children are not in school during this time to receive the benefits of the breakfast and lunch programs. Their families often rely on what the food shelf has to offer. To ensure this need is met, Sun Thisweek and the Dakota County Tribune are accepting nonperishable food items between July 15-26 at its offices at 15322 Galaxie Ave. in Apple Valley. All items will be donated to area food shelves.

Helping others find a better day Rosemount native to talk about experiences at Bloomington church by Jessica Harper SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE
When Jeff Lange first traveled to Thailand as a missionary nine years ago, he aimed to spread Christianity among its people but soon found himself doing much more. Shortly after arriving in the Southeast Asian nation in 2004, Lange came upon a group of displaced people from Laos who fled to Thailand to escape oppression. They had hoped to emigrate to the United States but were denied refugee status by the Thai government. For several years,
they remained in limbo on the streets with little food or money. After hearing of their plight, Lange provided the group food and supplies through a nonprofit he founded in Thailand called Mittam (translated as Friendship) Foundation. The Rosemount native also provided spiritual counseling to those who were interested and reached out to a group of “doctors without borders” to provide medical care. “It’s not just from a religious perspective, it’s the right thing as a person,” Lange said. By 2009, the displaced

As you drive down Denmark Avenue past the Dakota County Fairgrounds and into the heart of the Farmington farm country, the sight of elk in the pasture piques enough curiosity to turn off before the road becomes gravel and stop at Elk Haven Farms. The farm looks like something out of a storybook with a rustic, white
barn with peeling paint and bright yellow lilies around the grounds. In a little shed by the elk pen, a tiny, gray kitten peeks out from the hay. The elk come near the gate, curious about the new visitor, but the creatures are rather docile and friendly. Owner Gary Smith calls the elk “regal animals” that “hold their heads high.” He does add that the bulls
Those who like food, music, playing games and getting together with their neighbors are in luck: Rosemount Leprechaun Days has all that covered. The 2013 version of the annual summer celebration is bigger and, by all accounts, will be better than ever. The schedule of events is bursting with new additions (see story in today’s special section inside) to bring the total activities to 70 over the 10-day celebration, which runs from July 19-28. “We are so excited for this year’s festival to start,” said Diane Wellman, presi-
dent of the all-volunteer Leprechaun Days Committee. “Everyone on the committee is working very hard to make this the best Leprechaun Days yet.” The centerpiece of the festival will be the Grand Day Parade, which will include 100 units, and the Midsummer Faire with its carnival rides, food booths, a beer garden, top Twin Cities music acts, fireworks and more. The grand marshals of the parade will be three men who know a little bit about parades. Rosemount High School band directors Steve Olsen, Leon Sieve and Bojan See LUCK, 12A

The Minnesota Zoo’s two penguin chicks made their public debut on July 10. Born March 2 and March 21, the male chicks are part of the 3M Penguins of the African Coast exhibit which opened in 2011. The eldest chick, weighing just under 7 pounds, likes to swim and is comfortable in the water. He has a blue band on his right wing. The youngest chick, weighing around 6 pounds, was a bit skittish of water in the beginning but now enjoys it. He is already trying to “bray” like an adult penguin – sounding like a cross between a gull and a squeaky toy. He has a yellow band on his right wing. African penguins live and nest on the southwest coast of Africa, feeding primarily on anchovies, sardines, herring and pelagic goby. They are endangered in the wild due to oil spills, historical hunting and habitat destruction. (Photo submitted)

Education Farmington District Service Center moves to high school To help save operating costs, administration is packing up its 421 Walnut St. office and moving across town by Theresa Malloy SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE
what will happen to the existing building that the district owns and operates. Plans are not yet finalized for the transition.
Joint meeting The Farmington School Board will hold a joint meeting with the Farmington City Council at 5:30 p.m. Monday, July 22, at City Hall.
The Farmington School District will relocate this summer from its 421 Walnut St. building to the high school on Flagstaff Avenue. This change expected to happen in August will save the district money in operating costs. Superintendent Jay Haugen said at a June 24 board meeting that the district spends about $20,000 in operating and maintenance costs at the current building. “I really like having the district office in the school. It reminds us who we are serving,” Haugen said. At a previous district, Haugen said the district service center was located in a school. “The change will perhaps give the administration a taste of what it’s like to be in the school,” communications coordinator Jim Skelly said. “That’s what we’re here for.” The move is a low-cost transition, Skelly said, that does not require a special fund. The high school administrators will move from their offices to the main level, and the district human resources and finance departments will take over their old offices. Skelly said the biggest change is that community entrance will now be at the south side instead of the east. No decision has been made about
The School Board is seeking applicants for a new financial advisory committee. The board is looking for six community members with management and finance backgrounds who can provide insight and suggestions on financial issues such as audits, debts, refinancing, special projects, budgets and fundraisers. Applications are available on the district website at farmington.k12.mn.us and should be returned prior to Thursday, Aug. 15.
200 MacBooks The School Board has approved a lease with Apple for 200, 13-inch MacBook Pros for teachers this coming school year. Head of instructional technology Charles Duarte said the district has identified about 90 teachers who would use the MacBooks for iBook lesson planning and instruction. An application process will help distribute the remaining laptops. This past school year, the District Service Center had 16 MacBook Pros available for rental, but “the supply really hasn’t met the demand,” Duarte said.

Eagan teen revives school’s outdoor theater by Jessica Harper SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE
As a student at the School of Environmental Studies in Apple Valley, Paige Schornak often passed the school’s overgrown and unused outdoor amphitheater. A theater buff, the Eagan resident set out to renovate the 20-year-old structure — a task for which last month she earned a Girl Scout Gold Award, scouting’s highest honor. “Most students didn’t know about it,” said Schornak, a 2012 graduate. “I’m in theater and enjoy the environment, so I figured I might as well kill two birds with one stone.” With a $20 budget, Schornak and a group of volunteers, designed and installed a new staircase, repaired the aging cement bleachers, and removed weeds that were taking over the seating and around the small stage. “I hope one day, SES can host a small talent show or productions here,” said Schornak, who is studying theater production design at Normandale Community College in Bloomington. Since the renovation, some teachers have used the amphitheater a few times for outdoor lectures.
Eagan resident Paige Schornak received a Girl Scout Gold Award in June for restoring the amphitheater at the School of Environmental Studies in Apple Valley. Schornak graduated from SES last May.

First Minnesota re-enactors give three cheers, first for “the great state of Alabama” and second for the original 1st Minnesota and what its men did. The cheers followed a friendly exchange between the two states’ adjutant generals on the battlefield. (Photo by Jonathan Young)
Retracing the 1st Minnesota’s steps Hejkal found out about the trip from Secretary of State Mark Ritchie, cochair of the Minnesota Civil War Commemoration Task Force, who was a high school classmate. He and Ritchie both attended their high school reunion in Iowa immediately before the trip to Gettysburg. Samuel Henderson of Burnsville played a dual role in the Minnesota delegation that traveled to Gettysburg. He was a re-enactor and videographer. A member of the 1st Minnesota Volunteer Infantry re-enactment group, Henderson left the week before the anniversary to participate in re-enactments near the battlefield June 27-30. But as he donned his uniform, he also picked up a video camera. Henderson followed the official Minnesota delegation July 1-3, as well. As an intern with the Minnesota Historical Society, it was his task to capture the trip so those who couldn’t travel would still be able to “tag along.” He hopes to turn the footage into short documentary pieces. Through the pieces he is attempting to do more than simply record events. He’s trying to answer the question, “One hundred fifty years later, what kind of meaning does this hold for folks from all walks of life?” It will take time to go through the footage and create the documentaries, but Henderson hopes to finish them by the middle of August. They will be posted on mnhs.org. The official state delegation to Gettysburg rededicated the three Minnesota monuments on the battlefield. Minnesotans laid a wreath at the foot of each monument and honored the 1st Minnesota Volunteer Infantry Regiment’s role in the conflict. Although it was the only Minnesota regiment to fight at Gettysburg, the unit played a critical role and suffered severe casualties. After seeing action on two of the three days of battle, approximately 70 percent of the 330 Minnesotans who fought were dead or wounded. “Visiting the battlefield, where so many Minnesotans lost their lives or were injured, brings home the pivotal role these brave young men played in determining the outcome of the American Civil War and the future of the nation,” said Steve Elliott, director and CEO of the Minnesota Historical Society. Members of the Minnesota delegation also placed commemorative Civil War veteran flags at each of the 52 Minnesota graves at the national cemetery.
Lakeville, Burnsville residents attend 150th anniversary of Gettysburg battle by Jonathan Young SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE
It was an open field they charged across, headlong into whistling balls of lead that cut men down as they ran. The soldiers of the 1st Minnesota knew the bayonet charge they were making was suicide. Gen. Winfield Scott Hancock, who gave the order, knew it, too, but he needed five minutes to bring reinforcements to plug a critical hole in the Union line. He bought the time with Minnesotans’ lives. “Advance, Colonel, and take those colors,” Hancock ordered Col. William Colvill Jr. of Red Wing, commander of the 1st Minnesota Volunteer Infantry Regiment. Although outnumbered more than five to one by the opposing Alabama regiments, Colvill and his men acted without hesitation. According to tradition, 262 Minnesotans charged. After about 15 minutes fighting, only 47 soldiers returned to answer roll call. The rest were dead or wounded – an 82 percent casualty rate. But reinforcements had arrived, and the Union line was secure. “No soldier, on any field, in this or any other country, ever displayed grander heroism,” Hancock later said of the 1st Minnesota. Exactly 150 years after the charge, on the evening of July 2, 2013, a group of Minnesota soldiers, elected officials, history buffs and others stood at the top of the same slope as Colvill and his men. Two Dakota County men were part of the Minnesota delegation marking the Gettysburg battle’s 150th anniversary July 1-3. Robert Hejkal Jr. of Lakeville said walking the battlefield made the history seem more real. “History has always been one of my things,” he said. Hejkal partially credits his interest in history to the fact that his father was in World War II. His grandfather was also in the military. Hejkal continued the family trade with a 41-year career in the Army, and his son was in the 101st Airborne during the Gulf War. Although Hejkal went to Gettysburg in 1992, he didn’t have a guide then.

Opinion Deep cuts in food stamps harmful, unwarranted It is painfully obvious that too many elected officials in Washington, D.C., have lost touch with the struggling people of this nation. This was demonstrated recently when House leaders proposed a farm bill that would have cut aid to food stamp (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) recipients by a whopping $20 billion over a 10-year period. The Senate version, supported by Sens. Al Franken and Amy Klobuchar, cut a more manageable $4 billion from SNAP during the same period. Although the measure failed in the House, it stands as a stark reminder of how unbalanced thinking can be in Washington when it comes to “solving” the struggles of this nation’s poor. The House may debate the farm bill again before September, but it will likely contain significant cuts to SNAP. That’s bad news for millions of U.S. families who are using the program as a bridge to survival. The farm bill has a great impact on the fate of an estimated 47 million Americans who are receiving food stamps. The $20 billion in cuts identified in the $940 billion House version would have eliminated food support for an estimated 2 million Americans. The lion’s share of the farm bill deals directly with food assistance programs for people who qualify. These are people who have gone
ECM Editorial through the same pains that have ravaged most Americans during the last five years as gas prices have soared, and many of the most common food products have experienced price increases. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 8 of the 10 most common food products have experienced price increases in the last five years. For the middle class, the struggles have come in the form of belt tightening, perhaps through the loss of a family vacation, delaying the purchase of a new car, or putting fewer dollars toward retirement. For the nation’s poor, the last five years have been devastating, with fewer opportunities for jobs because of high unemployment, and a month-to-month scramble to pay the rent and avoid hunger pangs. Although it’s easy to keep poverty in the rearview mirror or omitted from our personal environment, the reality is that it affects one in 10 people in our state. There are hundreds of public school teachers throughout Minnesota who routinely send food home with needy kids because they are afraid they won’t eat again until they return to school. While it is true that as a nation we must get spending under control, doing
so at the expense of those who can least afford it, especially at a level proposed by the House, seems reckless. As 4th District U.S. Rep. Betty McCollum said, it may even be considered “immoral, cruel and harmful.” In Minnesota the cuts would have affected an estimated 30,000 people. Currently, one in 10 Minnesotans receives SNAP benefits, according to the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities. That is roughly 551,000 Minnesotans. Just within the 12 counties where ECM Publishers operates newspapers, there are 221,700 people receiving SNAP assistance, with an average monthly benefit of about $232 per household. These people are not invisible. They are moms, dads, grandmas, grandpas, and thousands of children who rely on adults to keep them fed. Although there is logic behind having the food stamp program attached to the farm bill by creating a partnership between farm interests and urban consumers of food, it may be time to separate the two, so Americans can truly see where congressional leaders stand on these two important issues. The House bill totaled 629 pages. Food stamps and nutrition constituted $750 billion of the $940 billion plan. Opponents will point to the food stamp program as an enabler, allowing freeloaders to slip through without con-
State leaders say one thing, do the opposite by David C. Olson SPECIAL TO SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE
Minnesotans, prepare to dig deeper into your pocketbooks following actions of the 2013 Legislature. Companies are being asked to pay a very high premium for the privilege of doing business in Minnesota. Many changes in tax law take effect July 1 and many are retroactive to Jan. 1. These new taxes include individual income tax, corporate taxes, sales taxes, estate and gift taxes, and cigarette taxes. The pyramid effect of these higher, and often hidden, costs is certain to be felt across the state and negatively impact the Minnesota economy and business competitiveness. The Minnesota Chamber of Commerce seeks to lower all of these costs. We support the call for a special session for immediate repeal of the B2B taxes: • Labor service charges for repair and maintenance of business equipment and machines, including farm equipment, effective July 1. • Purchases of telecommunications equipment by telecommunications providers, effective July 1. • Storage and warehousing services of business-related goods, effective April 1, 2014. Minnesota businesses will pay the 6.875 percent state sales tax, plus any local sales tax, on these services if you hire the work out. The cost especially hits small and midsize businesses that don’t
David C. Olson have the in-house expertise. The impact, without a doubt, will take a toll. Affected companies will be placed at an extreme disadvantage with their peers in other states and nations. Consumers will pay the price through higher costs for goods and services; employees will feel the impact through lower wages and lost jobs. B2B taxes are not only misguided fiscal policy, but they are at cross-purposes with legislative goals to promote economic growth. Consider these actions taken by the 2013 Legislature: A Job Creation Fund of $24 million was created to encourage industries – including storage and warehouse services and the businesses that use them – to locate in Minnesota. The B2B tax puts this industry at an extreme disadvantage, and without a healthy warehousing industry, Minnesota is less attractive for the businesses that require this service. Purchases of capital equipment will now be exempt from the sales tax rather than forcing companies to apply for tax refunds. That’s good. But now labor costs for repairing and maintaining the equipment are subject to sales tax.
The governor’s Broadband Task Force recommended keeping the current exemption, and the Legislature allocated, $500,000 to create a broadband development office to encourage investment of high-tech equipment and capacity in Minnesota. Yet the B2B tax was extended to telecommunications equipment, making it more expensive for providers to expand the state’s telecommunications infrastructure. The fact is, we did not even need the new tax to solve the budget. The Legislature faced a $627 million short-term problem and solved it by raising $2.3 billion in taxes. There is plenty of opportunity for the governor and lawmakers to correct their misguided actions by focusing on spending reductions. Owners and managers are tired of hearing our leaders promote a “pro-jobs” agenda, then pass “anti-business” legislation. In contrast, neighboring states are knocking on our doors, saying, “We are open for business” and backing it up with their policy decisions. These high and punitive taxes are making it harder and harder for our Minnesota businesses to ignore the welcoming invitations from other states. Let’s do the right thing and repeal these B2B taxes before we lose important businesses and jobs.
tributing to society. There will always be people who attempt to “work the system,” but the overwhelming majority of recipients take no joy in accepting assistance. In fact, in households with children who receive food stamps, 62 percent had at least one adult in the workforce in the month that they received support. And in the year prior to or the year immediately after a family with children received food stamps, 87 percent had one adult in the workforce. This hardly paints a picture of participants who want to remain on the program without working. Critics also often point to widespread fraud among participants. Ever since EBT cards were implemented to track purchases electronically, the U.S. Department of Agriculture estimates that 96 percent of all transactions are accurate. If spending cuts are to be made all Americans may need to bear some burden, but leaders must do better with future nutrition spending proposals in the farm bill and not make a dire situation for our nation’s poor seem even more hopeless.

News editor thanks Farmington community by Theresa Malloy SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE
Starting next week, Dakota County Tribune readers will see a change in bylines. Andy Rogers will move from sports to covering Farmington news, as I head to ECM Publishers’ Waconia office as the new editor for The Mound Laker. My time covering Farmington remains far too brief. As I trade farms for lakes and head back to the Lake Minnetonka area were I was raised, I will miss the dynamic, interesting and closeknit community in Farmington. I wish I had the time to thank every person who shared their stories, welcomed me into their homes or offices and patiently listened to my ignorant questions about farming. Such kindness and generosity is appreciated and remembered. Perhaps my young career will still bring me back south, but until then I will cherish the experiences I have had reporting in your community. Thank you for making my job something I looked forward to every day. Andy will bring his expertise to produce exceptional community coverage. He has covered sports for 10 years and done some Farmington news reporting David Olson is president of the Minnesota in months leading up to my arrival.

Letters Lebanon Hills survey explained To the editor: I can’t idly sit by and let the assertion appearing in a recent letter to the editor of this newspaper suggesting that 60 percent of people polled by Dakota County oppose paved trails in Lebanon Hills go unchallenged. About a year ago, a very unscientific Survey Monkey survey conducted by Dakota County asked people what park uses they would support and one third answered paved trails. This was considered by county staff to be high considering the make up of respondents. The other
two thirds didn’t oppose paved trails: They simply had different choices. Based on the findings of this unscientific survey, the writer might want to suggest that if I go out for diner with two friends and I order a steak but the other two order something else that it means two thirds of us are opposed to steak. Earlier this year a poll was conducted for Dakota County by the National Research Center with a margin of error of 4 percent. When asked what uses they would support in Dakota County Parks such as Lebanon Hills, respondents were given eight specific choices and a ninth choice of “other.” Sixty-six percent selected
the choice of “Trail networks for hiking, biking or skiing.” Those who oppose paved trails in Lebanon Hills have an absolute right to their opinion; but they can’t create their own facts.

To the editor: Last week, we were reminded by the monthly jobs report how tepid economic growth remains. Too many Minnesotans have been out of work for more than several months, wages in many sectors are stagnant, and the unemployment rate is still too
high. To help provide new opportunities to put Minnesotans back to work in a highly competitive and uncertain job market, U.S. Rep. John Kline, R-Burnsville, will be hosting a Career and Jobs Fair from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday, July 15, at the Eagan Community Center. The career and jobs fair is free and open to the public. If you are looking for a job, I encourage you to attend this event and share the information with anyone you know who is struggling as they navigate the uncertain economy. Scheduled to attend the jobs fair are more than 60 private-sector employers who currently have job openings in a wide variety of fields including the health care, technology, financial, and retail industries. Employment assistance organizations and a variety of educational institutions are also scheduled to attend. The fair will also include breakout sessions focusing on tips for job seekers, including effective
resume writing. The Better Business Bureau and the Minnesota Department of Veteran Affairs will also be on hand offering workshops to help veterans find employment by translating specific veterans’ skill sets into finding a job. I hope to see many people Monday at the fair. SALLY BRYANT Career & Jobs Fair coordinator U.S. Rep. John Kline

Keep up the good work. MARY JUNG Lakeville

Hitting the road with free ultrasounds Pregnancy center looks to mobile outreach “Four years ago the president of the (Alpha) board and I attended a conference at Hosanna Church (in Lakeville),” she said. “Every speaker there said, ‘You need to go where people are in order to meet their needs.’ I just looked at her and I started writing down, ‘We need a mobile van.’ ” Alpha has been raising money since then to buy the $175,000 van, Thibodeaux said. Citing ICU Mobile statistics, Thibodeaux said 67 percent more women are likely to visit a mobile unit than a building. She and three other volunteer staffers are traveling to Akron for ICU Mobile training. Ultrasounds will be conducted by a registered diagnostic medical sonographer, Thibodeaux said. Once the van is operating, Alpha will provide client services such as counseling and classes in office space it now occupies at Bethesda Church in Prior Lake, Thibodeaux said. The van will park in locations for several hours at a time, she said. A commissioning service for the van is being held at 1 p.m. Sunday, July 21, at the church, 15033 Highway 13 S. The Walk and Roll for Life, an annual Alpha fundraiser, will follow at 1:30 p.m. An open house with tours of the mobile unit will be held from 2-4 p.m.

A south metro pregnancy center is taking its campaign to prevent abortions on the road. Alpha Women’s Center has sold its building in Savage and purchased a 31-foot van offering free pregnancy testing and ultrasound services. The Image Clear Ultrasound van will open for business on Aug. 12 and be visible in area communities before then, said Kim Thibodeaux, Alpha’s director. It will make an appearance during the Aug. 6 Night to Unite crime-fighting event at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church in Burnsville. “And we’re in every parade we can get our hands on in the Scott County area,” said Thibodeaux, of Savage. Alpha’s goal in providing free pregnancy ultrasounds, which use sound wave images to visually evaluate fetal development, is simple. “The ultimate goal is to show women the ultrasounds so that they know it’s a life and that they are able to choose life for the unborn,” Thibodeaux said. Alpha Women’s Center is one of two Twin Cities pregnancy centers affiliated with Akron, Ohio-based Image Clear Ultrasound Mobile, a self-described Christian ministry that Thibodeaux said has provided about 40 mobile units nationwide. The other is the Robbinsdale Women’s Center, which serves the north metro, she said.

July 11, 2013 DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE
FIRE, from 1A 2006 and 20 new firefighters to fill a new station was a “whirlwind storm” and the fund took a hit, Allbee said. The proposal asks the city to put aside a fixed $150,000 to the retirement fund, $13,000 more than the scheduled payment. By 2018, the fixed payments are projected to put the retirement fund at 113 percent fully funded, whereas current payments would keep it 98 percent funded in the same year.
Retention issues Chief Tim Pietsch expressed at an earlier meeting concern about retention rates. With the impending retirements, the department is looking at a relatively young group to take over command positions. According to the 2012 department report, 49 percent of firefighters have less than five years of experience, whereas 11 percent have 20plus years of experience, the remaining 40 percent fall in the middle range. All Farmington firefighters are part-time, including the chief who is going on his 31st year of service. The firefighters have full-time jobs elsewhere and are committed to responding when paged. The firefighters presenting told the council that this investment could help keep firefighters in Farmington. Compared to other cities nearby, Farmington provides the lowest pension at about $4,575 per year of service for its 44 firefighters. Lakeville pensions for its 85 members are $6,230, Rosemount pensions come in at $6,900 for 47 firefighters, and Apple Valley is at $6,300 for its 65 firefighters. Pietsch said those who resign early may save the city money on the retirement side, but it costs the city more to train these people who leave. Firefighters can
retire between five to 20 years of service and collect a pension when they turn 50. If the 20 years is hit before age 50, one can defer this and get 5 percent added each year until 50. Others can defer and continue service. Since 2007, the city has not raised the pension.
Clothing allowance The department has also requested an increase in clothing allowances. Firefighters are currently given $50 at the end of the year as a part of their paycheck to pay for clothes. Uniform costs can total more than $400 out of pocket to pay for T-shirts, polos, duty pants, job sweatshirts, stocking or baseball caps and work boots. “Sometimes you are wearing dress clothes going to a fire,” Allbee said. The refund might not cover personal clothing losses. The department would like to see $200 given annually to each firefighter, which would cost the city $10,000 a year for a full 50-member unit. That is a $7,500 increase from the current budget.
Vehicle fund proposal
The city’s annual payments will drop to $240,000 in year 11 and climb to $245,000 starting year 23. The plan extends to 2048. The first expenses would be $1.45 million for funding vehicles in 2015, which would be the only time the fund would borrow money, done in parts and put toward chief vehicles and a fire marshal vehicle. The marshal does not have his own vehicle; he shares one with the chief.
Council reactions Council members were in favor of the clothing and retirement increases, but some questions were raised about the costly CIP plan. The council is applying more scrutiny to such requests because of state restrictions that cap the levy next year at 3 percent. Because the city is receiving local government aid dollars that match what the 3 percent levy would bring in, the city cannot increase a levy next year. This bind has sent the council back to the chopping block to make about $300,000 in cuts to its current proposed budget. Mayor Todd Larson questioned why the department could not use a vehicle from the Police Department when it gets a new one. Council Member Terry Donnelly called it a “wellthought-out plan” with his biggest question being that annual vehicle CIP contribution. Council members Jason Bartholomay and Doug Bonar supported the idea of putting the township’s money toward a vehicle fund as a more transparent solution. However, this would mean incurring holes elsewhere. Bonar said the biggest investment is first-life safety and the second concern in debt.
The final proposal was to set up a fire vehicle capital improvement plan, which would help set aside funds to replace vehicles. The department has 11 vehicles in its fleet that have not been replaced or are past the optimal replacement time. Past councils have deferred vehicle renewal to save costs. Emergency vehicles are the biggest cost the department has, Pietsch said. “It paints kind of a dire picture,” said Jim Schmitz, assistant chief and member of the fire vehicle committee. The CIP fund would put Email Theresa Malloy at away $280,000 per year for theresa.malloy@ecm-inc. the first 10 years, supported com. with an initial 10-year bond.
Rosemount native Jeff Lange trains a group of Thai men who are interested in becoming Baptist pastors while working as a missionary in the Southeast Asian nation. Lange will speak about his experiences in Thailand on Sunday, July 14, at Metro Baptist Church in Bloomington. (Photo submitted) LANGE, from 1A for most of his youth he wasn’t very devout. “Christianity didn’t make much of an impression on me back then,” he said. As a student at North Dakota State University, Lange found himself partying as much as studying. While there, he was accepted in to a Marine Corps flight school. “My whole life, I dreamed of flying jets,” he said. Though he was pursuing his dreams, Lange began to feel like something was missing from his life. Within a few years, he decided to join a Bible study group on campus, which inspired him to become a devout Baptist. Lange married his wife, Theresa, a few years later and earned a master’s in theology and cross cultural education.

The couple decided to move to Thailand with their infant son in 2004 after taking a 10-day mission trip six years earlier. “I believe this is my life’s calling,” he said. Over the next nine years, Lange set up ministries in a Bangkok suburb and in villages across Thailand. Lange emphasized that the goal of his mission work, which is financed by several U.S. Baptist churches, is to support those who are open to Christianity. “We’re not forcing anyone or looking to grow the numbers,” Lange said. “I hope to see people get saved and help them reach their own social network of people.” Once a group expresses an interest in establishing a congregation, Lange helps them build a church and trains local pastors. Lange said his goal is to help the native people become their own spiritual leaders. In addition to sprouting ministries, Lange spends his time expanding educational opportunities in impoverished areas of Southeast Asia. Through his nonprofit, Lange offers free English classes and scholarships for poor families to send their children to school and to pay for school uniforms. As his ministry has grown, so too has Lange’s family.
The couple now has four children: Jonathan, 9, Grace, 6, Faith, 3, and Joshua, 7 months. Though the younger three children were born in Thailand, they were granted U.S. citizenship. Immersed in the culture, the children speak Thai and English but receive a Western education through home schooling. Though the children have spent much of their formative years in Thailand, they also remain connected to the United States. The family returns home for six months every three years to share their experiences with their church and visit family. Although the children have many positive experiences, kidnapping and human trafficking are all too real dangers in Thailand. As a result, Lange and his wife try to stay vigilant and keep a close eye on their young children. Deeply troubled by this reality, Lange said he is considering adding antihuman trafficking outreach to his ministries in the near future. “It’s heart-wrenching to see such young children who are victims of it,” he said.

Dave Smith extends his hand out to one of the cows at Elk Haven Farms. The elk are rather docile animals unless the mother has a young calf or it’s the fall mating season. (Photo by Theresa Malloy) ELK, from 1A get feisty in the fall during mating season, and the cows can get a little testy around people who go near the young calves. The elk sometimes play around and stand on their hind legs and fight each other. For about 60 years Smith has lived and worked on this farmland that once belonged to his father. This Elk Haven Farms is a more recent venture he started with his son Dave Smith, which was started several years back. Dave Smith is a bartender at weddings and Aflac representative by day, but he is a farming entrepreneur in his free time, overseeing Elk Haven Farms and his own vegetable venture nearby. Gary Smith said he did not want to farm after growing up on the farm, but he came back to farming and enjoys just spending time out in the quiet isolation of the fields, only interrupted by an occasional passing car driving too fast on the gravel with the speakers blaring. The life of a farmer is not easy, he shares. The prolonged winter killed some of the grass in the hay fields and a wet June made vegetable growth stagnant. Five spotted calves hobble around the pen, which is divided into two sides to separate the bulls and cows. A few younger bulls stay with their mothers until they are ready to move to the other side. Near the back of the cow side is a patch of mud for the elk to cool off. Elk have thick hides that help them withstand the belowzero weather, but it gets hot in the summer months. The mud doubles as a way to see the calves that blend into the grasses. The elk population sus-

ing to the Chronic Wasting Disease Alliance. This caused some international restrictions on importing North American elk velvet and in part contributed to the price drop. Velvet is an ingredient in Chinese medicine, said to have natural medicinal properties that help with aliments such as arthritis. The Smiths ship some velvet off to Idaho where the pills are packaged. They sell these at the farm but not the Farmington market because of strict rules that products sold must be produced within a certain radius of Farmington. As the bulls get older, the antlers get heavier, sometimes weighing as much as 40-50 pounds. To retrieve the velvet, the bulls are tranquilized and the antlers are sawed off, then stored in a freezer. When it comes time to butcher the elk, the cows make for good steaks, and the bulls are ground in hamburger meat. The Smiths sell many parts of the elk including the hide and even the stomach, per request. Gary Smith said elk hide can be used to make fine leather and often it is used for firefighting gloves because the heat resistance is high. However, Minnesota only has one tannery now, in Duluth. An Owatonna tannery shut down a few years back after declaring bankruptcy. What keeps the Smiths going is optimism and a love for their trade. The two raise barley and oats and make hay bales for their elk. As they pour the food into the troughs, they stand and watch the elk while the sun lowers on a pretty perfect summer day.

tains itself without artificial insemination that the farmers used when they started out. Dave Smith said the elk with the biggest antlers is usually selected to mate and put in the pen with the cows. Three calves were lost this spring; one got stuck in the mud. The Smiths have signed on to sell elk meat and vegetables at the Farmington Farmers Market that runs Thursdays in front of City Hall throughout the summer. The first few weeks, the vegetable selection was limited to radishes, but a more favorable July means a wider selection coming up. Dave Smith said they are also learning how to market the elk meat. He brought a crock pot to sample meat and sees regulars coming back now. According to the Minnesota Elk Breeders Association, the elk meat is a lean red meat with a low fat content and higher percentage of protein and nutrients present. The Smiths sell their meat for a steady price of $5.50 per pound, whereas other vendors may sell it for as much as $7 or $8 a pound. The meat is chemical free and all-natural. Minnesota is one of the biggest states for elk farming. However, the number of elk farmers has dropped in the past few years, Dave Smith said, due to the decreased cost of velvet. At its peak, velvet from antlers cost about $100 per pound. When the Smiths started their business, that number hovered around $8 a pound. Part of this is from chronic wasting disease, which is a neurological disease found in some North American cervids, the family name for elk, deer and moose. Scientists are uncertain how the disease is spread and have not seen it transmitted to humans, accord-

Sports Baseball tourney attracts 90 teams Gopher Classic pool play takes place at several local sites by Mike Shaughnessy SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Fifty-nine teams are from Minnesota, and nine of them are from Dakota County. The tournament has almost doubled in size since 2006, when it had 48 teams. The Gopher Classic’s namesake, Jim Hanus, was a longtime coach of several teams in the Minnetonka/Excelsior area, including the Excelsior Legion. Barring weather delays, each team will play five games over three days through Sunday, with a playoff phase beginning Monday and concluding with the championship game at 2 p.m. Tuesday at Veterans Field in Minnetonka.

Tigers coach hired as Park Center activities coordinator Carpentier helped build girls team into contender by Andy Rogers SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE
Former Farmington soccer coach and teacher Rob Carpentier was recently hired as the new activities coordinator at Park Center High School. Although it was a promotion for Carpentier, he paused for a moment before jumping at the chance. “Leaving the Farmington program was the toughest part of my decision,” he said. “That says so much about the people in the program, from kids to parents to coaches ... My time with the Farmington girls program was honestly the most fulfilling coaching experience
I’ve ever had.” He leaves the program in the hands of Tracie Randall, who was the junior varsity coach. “I think it is a wonderful decision,” Carpentier said. “I feel great for Tracie. She has the technical knowledge to be a success and she already has relationships with many of the girls. This is a great match for the girls, too, as I know they were looking for continuity and a seamless transition from one head coach to another.” A seamless transition will be helpful considering the Tigers have been a team on the rise. Carpentier was the girls varsity soccer coach for the past four years and social studies teacher. Last year, Carpentier’s team finished tied for first in the Missota Conference
and was the runner-up in the Section 1AA finals. With a 12-5-2 record, it was the best season yet for the Tigers. “I am confident it will be even greater this coming fall,” Carpentier said. “The academic success was great and, of course, there was the build-up to last year’s record-breaking season on the field.” He said his experience with the team will help him with the Pirates of Park Center, especially with how much the program grew, which gave him plenty of administrative experience. The number of participants increased from about 60-65 girls his first year to 88 last year. “The real preparation came from my ability to build and cultivate relationships with athletic and activity directors around
the metro area,” Carpentier said. “This included discussions of various issues that activity administrators face on a consistent basis.” The Farmington activities and athletic director Jon Summer “was a powerful influence on my preparation,” he said. “If I can be half the administrator he is then I will find success,” Carpentier said. He’s been teaching for more than 20 years. Early on in his career he focused on studying at William Mitchell College of Law, but in 1994, weeks before he was scheduled to take the bar exam, he was offered a job as a teacher and never looked back. He said he envisioned being a teacher and coach until he retired, but those close to him suggested he look into activity adminis-
tration. “I feel strongly that I can make a more strategic, big picture difference with our students by taking on this new challenge,” Carpentier said. “I have always been involved in education because of the positive influence I can have on students. This allows me to go from coaching a team to coaching the coaches and advisors throughout an entire activity department.” As he leaves Farmington for life in the northern suburbs, Carpentier said he is forever “indebted to Tracie Randall, Linda Crawford, Robb Virgin, Eric Shelton, Jon Graff, Jason Kohlbeck and Kjerstin Theraldson as members of our staff for the loyalty and friendship they provided me in my time in Farmington. And
of course, I have to thank Jon Summer for the support and belief he showed throughout my time in the community.”
New coach Assistant varsity baseball coach Graff is taking over as head coach for the Tigers next year. Graff is replacing Mike Winters, who has been the head coach for the past 13 seasons. Graff has been an assistant for the past 11 years. He’s also helped coach football, soccer and basketball. He has been a history teacher at Farmington High School since 1997. Graff also coaches the American Legion baseball team in Farmington. Email Andy Rogers at email@example.com.
Notebook: Two local soccer teams chosen for Super Elite tourney by Mike Shaughnessy SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE
Two teams from Dakota County will be involved in one of the kickoff events this weekend for the USA Cup international youth soccer tournament in Blaine. The Dakota Rev Riptide Under-14 girls team and the Eagan Wave Premier Under-16 girls team were invited to the USA Cup Super Elite tournament, which runs Friday through Sunday at the National Sports Center. The main USA Cup tourney starts Tuesday and runs through July 20. The Super Elite tourney has six teams in each of four classes: girls U14, boys U14, girls U16 and boys U16. Teams first had to apply for the event and then be invited by tournament
officials. Dakota Rev Riptide won the Midwest Premier League, allowing just one goal in the process. Other teams in its division at the Super Elite tourney include MapleBrook Rush Premier and Minnesota Thunder Academy 99 as well as teams from Kansas, Nebraska and Wisconsin. In the girls U16 division, Eagan’s potential opponents include three Minnesota teams – Minnesota Thunder Academy 97 Blue, Tonka United Blue and NSSA Blast. There’s also one team from Wisconsin and one from Sendai, Japan. Schedules for the Super Elite tournament were not finalized when this edition went to press.

Retracing the 1st Minnesota’s steps Dakota County residents attend 150th anniversary of Gettysburg battle by Jonathan Young SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE
It was an open field they charged across, headlong into whistling balls of lead that cut men down as they ran. The soldiers of the 1st Minnesota knew the bayonet charge they were making was suicide. Gen. Winfield Scott Hancock, who gave the order, knew it, too, but he needed five minutes to bring reinforcements to plug a critical hole in the Union line. He bought the time with Minnesotans’ lives. “Advance, Colonel, and take those colors,” Hancock ordered Col. William Colvill Jr. of Red Wing, commander of the 1st Minnesota Volunteer Infantry Regiment. Although outnumbered more than five to one by the opposing Alabama regiments, Colvill and his men acted without hesitation. According to tradition, 262 Minnesotans charged.
After about 15 minutes fighting, only 47 soldiers returned to answer roll call. The rest were dead or wounded – an 82 percent casualty rate. But reinforcements had arrived, and the Union line was secure. “No soldier, on any field, in this or any other country, ever displayed grander heroism,” Hancock later said of the 1st Minnesota. Exactly 150 years after the charge, on the evening of July 2, 2013, a group of Minnesota soldiers, elected officials, history buffs and others stood at the top of the same slope as Colvill and his men. Two Dakota County men were part of the Minnesota delegation marking the Gettysburg battle’s 150th anniversary July 1-3. Robert Hejkal Jr. of Lakeville said walking the battlefield made the history seem more real. “History has always been one of my things,” he
Samuel Henderson, of Burnsville, shoots footage in Gettysburg on July 1. (Photo by Jonathan Young) said. Hejkal partially credits his interest in history to the fact that his father was in World War II. His grandfather was also in the military. Hejkal continued the family trade with a 41-year career in the Army, and his son was in the 101st Airborne during the Gulf War. Although Hejkal went to Gettysburg in 1992, he didn’t have a guide then. This trip offered him “the opportunity to get the
scoop from people who know.” Hejkal found out about the trip from Secretary of State Mark Ritchie, cochair of the Minnesota Civil War Commemoration Task Force, who was a high school classmate. He and Ritchie both attended their high school reunion in Iowa immediately before the trip to Gettysburg. Samuel Henderson of Burnsville played a dual role in the Minnesota delegation that traveled to Gettysburg. He was a reenactor and videographer. A member of the 1st Minnesota Volunteer Infantry re-enactment group, Henderson left the week before the anniversary to participate in re-enactments near the battlefield June 27-30. But as he donned his uniform, he also picked up a video camera. Henderson followed the official Minnesota delegation July 1-3, as well. As an intern with the Minnesota Historical Society, it was his task to capture the trip so those who couldn’t travel would still be able to “tag along.” Robert Hejkal Jr. (left) of Lakeville and Donald Nesheim of Robbinsdale lean against He hopes to turn the a fence in front of the McPherson barn, where heavy fighting took place at Gettysburg. footage into short docu(Photo by Jonathan Young) mentary pieces.
cated the three Minnesota monuments on the battlefield. Minnesotans laid a wreath at the foot of each monument and honored the 1st Minnesota Volunteer Infantry Regiment’s role in the conflict. Although it was the only Minnesota regiment to fight at Gettysburg, the unit played a critical role and suffered severe casualties. After seeing action on two of the three days of battle, approximately 70 percent of the 330 Minnesotans who fought were dead or wounded. “Visiting the battlefield, where so many Minnesotans lost their lives or were injured, brings home the pivotal role these brave young men played in determining the outcome of the American Civil War and the future of the nation,” said Steve Elliott, director and CEO of the Minnesota Historical Society. Members of the Minnesota delegation also placed commemorative Civil War veteran flags at each of the 52 Minnesota graves at the national cemetery.
Through the pieces he is attempting to do more than simply record events. He’s trying to answer the question, “One hundred fifty years later, what kind of meaning does this hold for folks from all walks of life?” It will take time to go through the footage and create the documentaries, but Henderson hopes to finish them by the middle of August. They will be posted on mnhs.org. The official state delega- Email the author at jonation to Gettysburg rededi- firstname.lastname@example.org.

Lakeville man’s plan meets painful end Nathan Mehlhoff back home, uncertain of future by Laura Adelmann SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE
A Lakeville man’s 2,000-mile quest came to an abrupt halt last month, just 70 miles into his journey. An injury forced Nathan Mehlhoff, 22, to abandon his plan to walk from his parent’s Lakeville home on June 17 to San Francisco, Calif. The trip was to take months, but he only made it a few days. Nathan took refuge with a friend in Mankato, where a sore, swollen ankle refused to accept another step, and he wound up calling a cab to the doctor’s office. An X-ray revealed what doctors said was a stress fracture of his lower left tibia bone. “I basically could not walk,” Nathan said. “I was limping around and it was very painful.” Doctors estimated four
to six weeks time to heal, a prognosis Nathan said left him “devastated.” The Lakeville High School graduate and English major at Winona State University had decided to take a break from school to pursue adventure and raise money for Feeding America, a hunger relief charity. He had wanted to see the world, meet people and possibly begin a blogging career by gaining sponsors as he documented his cross-country walk on www.seeingitslowly.com. Doctors briefly revived his hope for the journey by suggesting he may be able to bike to California. Days after his brother Colton Mehlhoff brought Nathan home, he borrowed Colton’s bike to take a five-day test drive through Minnesota and Wisconsin. The six-day, 200-mile trip went great. Nathan’s travels included Cannon Falls, Lake City and Menomonie, Wis.
In an email to Sun Thisweek, Nathan described “green landscapes under clear blue skies cut by running water and spotted with small towns,” but when he got home July 3, a herniated disc in his back protested, pressed on his sciatic nerve and created excruciating pain down his leg. “That was the most amount of pain I’ve ever had in my life,” Nathan said. His discomfort was multiplied by a bad cold he said he caught while camping at a truck stop parking lot. “It was not the most comfortable night,” he said. Although diverted from his plans for a big adventure, Nathan said he did enjoy the smaller travels he was able to complete, noting some of the wonderful people he met along his way.

RACES, from 1A proceeds will help feed Haitian refugees living in the Dominican Republic. Earlier this year, more than 1,400 volunteers from Rosemount packaged 285,120 meals for families in the Dominican Republic through the nonprofit Impact Lives. The food has been packed, yet $26,000 is still needed in order to ship it. The Rev. Bill Goodwin, pastor of Lighthouse Christian Church in Rosemount, is a member of One Rosemount and a leader of the Bathtub Races. â€œWhat a wonderful community-wide event,â€? Goodwin said, â€œThe community can come together and tackle the remainder of funds so that the food we packaged wonâ€™t sit in a warehouse. This is a wonderful opportunity for us to finish what we started.â€? The Feeding Families initiative was sparked by Goodwinâ€™s trip to East Africa in September of last year. Goodwin visited East Africa to monitor a Lighthouse project, partially sponsored by the 2012 Bathtub Races. During the trip, Goodwin visited a local school. The school proudly displayed their newly improved lunches. Goodwin noticed two pots of food with eager children huddled around it. â€œIs this the kidsâ€™ lunch for today?â€? Goodwin asked. The teacher corrected him, saying that the two pots fed 100 children every four days. After witnessing such shocking conditions, Goodwin returned to One Rosemount and proposed the group tackle world hunger. One Rosemount took the initiative to Impact Lives. The two groups joined together to reach hungry refugees in the Dominican Republic. One Rosemount hopes

(Photo by Rick Orndorf) that the Bathtub Races and Family Fun Night will raise both money and awareness for the cause. Attendance is anticipated to double this year to 800 people and KARE 11 sportscaster Eric Perkins is expected to cover the event with Perk at Play and the Fan Van. This yearâ€™s Family Fun Night includes many family-friendly opportunities to donate. Ticket sales will allow people to purchase such items as hot dogs, water, chips, temporary tattoos, three throws at the dunk tank or entry to one of the jumper houses. Attendees can expect the fun to begin at 5 p.m., kicking off with the Minnesota Athletic Trainerâ€™s Association presenting a zumba class demonstration. A karate demonstration begins at 6:15 p.m. The Rosemount Fire Department will also swing by with their trucks. A number of local churches plan to help out

with tattoos and jumper houses, including Rosemount United Methodist Church, Lighthouse, St. Josephâ€™s and Community of Hope. Look for a complete list of dunk tank participants in next weekâ€™s edition and online at SunThisweek.com. Cub Foods will be providing food for attendees between activities. The bathtub races start at 6:30 p.m. Typically the races have 20 teams, but organizers are expecting more this year. The teams are split into three categories: adult, child and local business. The cost to race is a $50 donation. Winners receive a traveling trophy and will be honored in the Leprechaun Days Parade. Teams wishing to race can still apply at the Lighthouse Churchâ€™s website. Viewers are encouraged to buy balloons at $1 for a set of five. Event
LUCK, from 1A Hoover will traverse the parade route with more attention than usual. They will ride along with the award-winning and 2014 Tournament of Roses Parade qualifier Rosemount High School marching band as grand marshals. â€œThough they are quick to deflect praise to the students for the bandâ€™s Rose Bowl accomplishment and other awards, their leadership has created a culture of success that deserves recognition,â€? Wellman said. Bands of another kind will highlight the Midsummer Faire, which will run 5-11 p.m. Friday, July 26, and 1-11 p.m. Saturday, July 26. The lineup includes Rocket Club, a country rock band fronted by Chris Hawkey, co-host of the KFAN-radio Power Trip morning show; Arch Allies, a critically acclaimed Journey, Styx and REO Speedwagon tribute band; and Sweet Siren, which covers top 40 hits of today. More information about the bands is at the newspaperâ€™s Information Central webpage at www. SunThisweek.com. The parade and Midsummer Faire will also provide a venue for people to give back to the community. The Share A Can Food Drive starts July 19 when people can bring nonperishable food items and donations to Cub Foods, but people also can bring their donations to Cubâ€™s parade float or to the Leprechaun Days Information Booth at the Central Park Shelter during the Midsummer Faire. Donations will go to 360 Communities and the CAP Agency. â€œThis is a great way for people to show they care about others who need a little help,â€? said Wellman, who is a Rosemount Cub employee.
organizers expect to fill 12,000 balloons for balloon-throwing spectators. Although the races will play a big part in reaching One Rosemountâ€™s goal of $26,000, there is still a long way to go. Organizers expect the races to raise $8,000. Area businesses also plan to support the cause, including Best Buyâ€™s donation of $1,000. One Rosemount hopes that the races will prompt the community to show their support as well. One Rosemount is still accepting volunteers to help fill balloons either Sunday, July 21, or Monday, July 22. Volunteers can apply online at the Lighthouse Churchâ€™s website. Donations for One Rosemount, Feeding Families can be sent through PayPal at www. OneRosemountFeedingFamilies.com. Email Sarah Allen at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Thisweekend Magic of â€˜Peter Panâ€™ comes to Eagan stage Show runs July 12 to Aug. 3 at EHS is what will draw people â€“ weâ€™re as close to a professional show as you can get,â€? Schiffman said. â€œAnd I think everybody comes to see Peter fly â€“ itâ€™ll blow their socks off.â€? Young children attending â€œPeter Panâ€? are invited to dress as a pirate or fairy and take part in the â€œPirate/Tinkerbell Paradeâ€? which will be held prior to each performance. And while â€œPeter Panâ€? looks to conjure a sense of wonder in children, the production has something to delight audience members of all ages, according to Cartwright. â€œItâ€™s funny, itâ€™s silly, and I think more than any show Iâ€™ve ever done thereâ€™s something for little kids, for adults and for everybody in between,â€? she said. â€œItâ€™s definitely magical.â€? Tickets are still available for opening weekend (July 12-14) and can be purchased online at www.eagan.k12.mn.us or by calling the box office at 651-683-6964.

Eagan Summer Community Theatreâ€™s production of â€œPeter Panâ€? seeks to take audiences on a magical journey into Neverland â€“ pixie dust and all. â€œIf youâ€™re sitting in the front eight rows, weâ€™re calling it â€˜the pixie dust splash zone,â€™â€? said Sarah Cartwright of Apple Valley, who plays Peter in the production. â€œYouâ€™ll probably be picking it out of your clothes for weeks.â€? The show, which runs July 12 to Aug. 3 in the Eagan High School auditorium, is directed by Dennis Swanson and features actors drawn from Eagan and the surrounding area. Jim Schiffman, who acted at Apple Valley High School in the 1970s and now works as a video producer for the city of Lakeville, is cast as Captain Hook. Heâ€™ll be joined on stage by his two children â€“ Olivia, 17, who plays a Neverland dancer, and Peter Pan (played by Sarah Cartwright) and Captain Hook (Jim Schiffman) lock 15-year-old Ethan, a â€œpirate in training.â€? swords in the latest production from Eagan Summer Community Theatre.

First-time author pays tribute to his hometown in â€˜J-Hawk Nationâ€™ by Andrew Miller SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE
Mark Reinsmoen said he didnâ€™t have to search far for the stories and characters that fill his first novel, â€œJ-Hawk Nation.â€? The farm adventures and small-town drama found on the bookâ€™s pages are drawn from Reinsmoenâ€™s own experiences growing up in the small rural community of Joice, Iowa. â€œI did not go looking for a book to write â€“ it came to me like E.T. came to Elliott,â€? he said. Mark Reinsmoen, a Burnsville resident and retired Echo â€œI wrote it to honor my Park Elementary fourth-grade teacher, saw publication hometown.â€? of his first novel in June. (Photo submitted) Reinsmoen, of Burnsville, recently retired from a teaching career in the Rosemount-Apple Valley-Eagan School District. He spent the last 28 years teaching at Echo Park Elementary in Burnsville. â€œJ-Hawk Nationâ€? is set in the early 1960s in the small town of Jeffers, Iowa â€“ a fictional-
ized version of Joice. Reinsmoen describes the book, which is told through the eyes of a 16-year-old boy, as â€œa portrait of those magical years â€Ś first love, the search for personal identity, questions that needed to be faced about the high school years and what lay ahead.â€? The plot of â€œJ-Hawk Nationâ€? focuses on the triumphs of a high
school basketball team, and Reinsmoen created 20-some fictional newspaper sports columns, interspersed throughout the book, to tell the teamâ€™s story. Reinsmoen, who recently has been undergoing chemotherapy as he battles prostate cancer, is now working on his next book, tentatively titled â€œBy the Seat of My Bike,â€? which is a collec-
tion of humorous stories about his biking adventures in Norway and other parts of Europe. â€œJ-Hawk Nation,â€? released in June, is available through online booksellers such as Barnes & Noble and Amazon.com. More about the book is at www.outskirtspress. com/jhawknation. Email Andrew Miller at email@example.com.
