All kidding aside, 1983 Rosemount High School graduate Peter Breitmayer is surprised and humbled to be this year’s recipient of the school’s Legacy Award. “I’m really grateful for what I have in my life, the greatest of which is my family and my wife Michelle and son Jackson. I am very touched by it. And very excited and nervous to see everyone and to say a little something about supporting the arts and being grateful for the opportunity,� said Breitmayer, the comedic actor who since 1988 has starred in movies, television shows, stage productions and Progressive Insurance commercials with the iconic “Flo.� “And clearly the message the Legacy Commit-

Levy increase set at 1.92 percent

The city of Farmington adopted a new 11-step wage scale for nonunion city employees that eliminated merit-based pay, put a freeze on the top salaries, and created a scale that’s more in line with other city government employees at similar cities. Earlier this year, the city hired St. Paul-based Fox Lawson and Associates to compare the city’s salaries to those in other Minnesota cities. The report revealed a few of the salaries were below market, particularly starting salaries. Starting salaries were 5.2 percent below market and midrange salaries were 0.3 percent below while top salaries were 4.2 percent above. “We’re basically setting the new wage scales at about market,� said City Administrator Dave McKnight.

The Farmington City Council approved a 1.92 percent increase from the 2013 property tax levy and a $10.96 million budget for 2014 at Monday’s meeting. The projected increase for the city portion of property taxes on the average home is $9.81. It was another challenging, nearly year-long process of setting a budget especially after some rules changed over the summer. The Legislature set 2014 levy limits for Minnesota cities and coun-

ties, which made the process more challenging as the city could only increase the levy to pay debt. As part of the budget, the city eliminated one police officer position. “In the last few years we’ve had to eliminate several positions from the city,� Council Member Christy Jo Fogarty said. “Every year that’s very challenging. It was especially hard because we eliminated a police officer position. As many of you know, my husband is also a police officer. It was especially hard. I went from being See LEVY, 11A

proved an 11-step wage scale where employees would advance a step each year with positive performance evaluations. Pay increases at each step have been decreased from the current five-step system. In the new wage scale, each step would increase by 2.0-2.5 percent, which is reduced from the current 4.55.0 percent. Any current wages at the top step will be frozen until the wage scale catches up to them in future years. The city manager would have some latitude with department head wages once department heads reach step nine. Any employee earning less than the new step one will be moved up Jan. 1. The new wage scale only includes nonunion positions. It does not include the police department. The city still has to negotiate new wage plans with union employees. The cost of implemented the new wage scale, which is just below $40,000, is included in the 2014 budget.

Ecumenical service at St. Joseph draws more than 300 by Tad Johnson SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

More than 300 people of varying faiths joined together Wednesday, Nov. 27, at St. Joseph Catholic Church for the ecumenical service “Praying in Thanksgiving – Praying as One Community.� Lutherans, Methodists, Presbyterians, Catholics, Episcopalians and Baptists sang and prayed together for unity and for all the things – great and small – for which they are thankful. Various clergy from five area churches were at the service, including the Rev. Karen Bruins, of Rosemount United Methodist Church, who delivered the sermon. The Rev. Paul Jarvis, of St. Joseph Catholic Church, said the most moving part of the service was the procession of an empty shopping cart to the altar with the assistance of a young worshipper. The empty cart signified that donations are needed to fill food shelves this winter as many people in Dakota County need help putting food on the table. “The vast majority of those receiving assistance from counties’ social services and food from food shelves are young kids,� Jarvis said. He said the cart symbolized the “new face of poverty, in which the impoverished are not only the young (the vast, vast majority of the poor) and the recently divorced and seniors who cannot live on Social Security alone, but now those who were once among the middle class or upper middle class who were before contributing to food shelves like 360 Communities and are now receiving from them.� Several hundred pounds of food and mon-

Frustrated neighbors voice opposition to 24-hour gravel mining Lakeville City Council to consider Midwest Asphalt’s proposal Dec. 16 by Laura Adelmann SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

More than 20 concerned residents attended a Nov. 26 community meeting regarding Midwest Asphalt’s request for an interim use permit to allow 24-hour mining, seven days per week. Frustrated neighbors peppered city staff and Midwest Asphalt owner Blair Bury with questions about noise, dust, pollution, lighting, dumping, truck traffic and views. They also questioned how mining impacts water quality of Lake Marion. Midwest Asphalt operates its gravel mining operation adjacent to the lake off Kenrick Avenue and 195th Street. The Lakeville City Council has delayed action regarding Midwest Asphalt’s expanded operations request, which in August received a recommendation for approval by the Planning Commission with conditions that include a ban on night and weekend rock crushing, limitations on activities and night lighting restrictions. City Council Member Doug Anderson, the only elected Lakeville official at the meeting, told residents he has many concerns about the proposal and does not support the increased hours of operation because the land use does not seem compatible with surrounding residential properties. “I think there’s a significant question around compatible use for the 24/7 permit on this site,� Anderson said. “I’m a pro-business guy. I love having great businesses in this community, but I also happen to live on the lake, and I’ve heard your concerns as residents, and I have concerns myself as a resident.� Bury said he under-

stands the neighbors’ concerns, and would work with officials to ensure the site operations are within permitting regulations. City officials said a noise study may be required prior to City Council approval of the request, and Bury later said the noise study would probably delay his efforts to seek expanded hours, but he would still pursue that goal. “We want to do it right, so whether we do it in December 2013 or we do it in May 2014, it’s probably not going to be a big deal, but we want to do it right,� Bury said. Bury said he is seeking expanded hours because many road projects are occurring overnight, and to bid on those contracts he has to be able to provide materials during those hours. He previously said mining would occur during extended hours only as jobs require and promised precautions on site to mitigate noise. “The residents, their concerns haven’t changed,� Bury said. “I understand that, but we have to operate within the rules and regulations of the authorities, and we will do that.� Opponents to the expanded hours have started a website, www. l a ke m a r i o n g r av e l p i t . com, and are collecting signatures for an online petition to give to the city protesting Midwest Asphalt’s expansion request. Lakeville City Administrator Steve Mielke said the city has not received a petition. According to the website, 90 signatures opposing the 24-hour operations have been collected. Comments of signers are also being published on the site.

Scowls were common during a Nov. 26 community meeting regarding Midwest Asphalt’s request to conduct mining operations at its Lake Marion site 24/7. Frowning in the front is applicant Midwest Asphalt owner Blair Bury, whose proposal was met with scorn and anger by frustrated neighbors. (Photo by Laura Adelmann) One resident called noise from the Lake Marion gravel pit “severe� and dust levels “ridiculous,� stating, “It’s very hard to visit with my family as we can’t always hear each other. It’s impossible to sit outside and enjoy the weather and each other’s company.� Another resident described the mining pit as “an eyesore.� “Why the City Council would allow this next to a lake is absolutely disgraceful,� it states. “The city or state attorney needs to look at contributions being paid to these elected officials. There is no way they would allow this next to their home.� Residents at the meeting also indicated frustration with the way the city responds to gravel mining permit violations. They said on Aug. 27,

  

a City Council member witnessed a loading violation at Midwest Asphalt; Associate Planner Frank Dempsey confirmed the incident occurred, and said staff issued the company a warning. Residents said there is a lack of consequences regarding complaints, and some said noise complaints appear to be addressed for a short time, but repeatedly occur. They questioned the city’s capacity to monitor site activity and take action for repeated violations. Questions about a May

stone Lake development regarding noise. He said the matter was raised with Aggregate Industries, adjustments were made, and after some time, the nighttime noise issues problems were resolved. “Getting the issue presented to the operator to look at what they can do to help mitigate that was satisfactorily done,� Morey said. “We helped facilitate that.� Dempsey said he probably gets one complaint per year from that area regarding mining activities. “Most of the complaints have to do with conveyor wheels that squeak, sometimes you hear about the tailgate banging, but the operator there has always been responsive,� Dempsey said In the email, Morey suggested Bury consider extended operations instead of 24-hour operations because it may be more acceptable, and Anderson said he was under the impression that Bury may adjust his proposal, but Bury did not mention any alternative plan at the meeting. Mielke said the City Council is scheduled to consider the request at its Dec. 16 meeting. Bury said he is confident issues can be resolved. “We feel we can meet all the rules and regulations that apply to this site and that apply to this permit,� Bury said.

email between Bury and Dempsey were also raised because it discussed complaints issued by residents living near Aggregate Industries where 24-hour mining operations are already allowed. The email stated “neighbors in the area have been complaining about the late-night operations� and the city has been trying to manage the situation. Planning Director Daryl Morey said during the construction season early in the year, a complaint Laura Adelmann is at came in from a resident laura.adelmann@ecm-inc. in Apple Valley’s Cobble- com.

Opinion Paved trail will slice through heart of park Newspapers offer by Maryann Passe

Guest Columnist

SPECIAL TO SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

The Dakota County Parks manager has claimed more than once that the proposed paved connector trail at Lebanon Hills Regional Park will be near the perimeter of the park. The proof is in the recently published Lebanon Hills Development Plan. Slicing through the heart of the park from east to west is the proposed connector trail. County Commissioners positively emphasize that this trail will not replace any existing hiking, ski, or horse trails. Instead this will be a new trail bulldozed through Lebanon Hills’ forests, fields, and rolling landscape. To meet the Metropolitan Council’s Greenway Trail requirements building the connector trail will be a huge construction project: • Pavement will be 10-12 feet wide. • Total clearing width will be up to 30–50 feet wide • Sightlines will be up to 150 feet long (meaning corners must be cleared wide to accommodate views at fast bicycle speeds) • Hills will be cut off and low areas filled in to a 5 percen grade. The park will lose hundreds of trees and have its hilly landscape leveled. Additional environmental concerns include soil and watershed contamination when installing petroleum-based asphalt and using salt/chemicals to keep the trail clear year-round. Widespread invasive species, such as buckthorn, will be accommodated as many of them

could be just the beginning of leveling Lebanon Hills with paved trails. Alone, the 6.1 mile connector trail’s estimated cost is almost $3.4 million with a loss of about 8 acres of parkland to pavement (the trail’s cleared area is not included in this acre estimate). Annual maintenance estimates are unclear from the draft plan but similar trails have annual maintenance costs of tens of thousands per mile per year. The connector trail will run almost exactly parallel to the existing Highline Bike Trail in Eagan. Merely a half mile apart, we taxpayers will be maintaining both of these trails for years to come. The proposed Development Plan’s changes are irreversible and costly in many ways. There are alternatives that will meet the goals of the county to bring in more people and preserve the unique character of this park. The county needs to restart the master planning process with user group involvement at every level. The Lebanon Hills Regional Park Development Plan is open for comments until Jan. 18. Send your comments to: • Dakota County Parks Department: planning@co.dakota.mn.us • Dakota County Board of Commissioners: board@co.dakota. mn.us • Your elected Commissioner www.co.dakota.mn.us/Government/ Board/Pages/default.aspx.

thrive in disrupted soil. Most of this construction will be within what the current Lebanon Hills Master Plan has designated as the park’s environmental preserve area (a designation that is removed without explanation in the proposed Development Master Plan). There are serious concerns about the county’s intention that this trail be multi-use. As a Greenway Trail it will be connected to the Met Council’s 200-mile Metro Greenway System. Mixing Greenway bicyclists with pedestrians including families and people with disabilities may be disastrous at worst and unpleasant at best. Visit any of the single lane Greenway Trails anywhere in the metro on any weekend and you will rarely see pedestrians mixing with the groups of bicyclists. Contrary to the county’s original declarations, the new plan combines some equestrian and pedestrian trails. There are always safety concerns when mixing horses with pedestrians, especially those walking dogs. The Development Plan states “Lebanon Hills is the planned hub of the county’s Greenway System, with seven Greenways connecting in or near the park.” No limits, specifications, or costs for these other trails are included. Approval of this Development Plan by our county commissioners will give a green light to Maryann Passe is an outdoor and making Lebanon Hills a Met Coun- travel writer from Eagan.

Letters Don’t require deposit on cans, bottles

help pay for this singlesort recycling by selling scrap aluminum. Removing that revenue stream would no longer allow for single-sort recycling to be cost effective. This will result in more newspaper, cardboard, and plastic going into landfills as opposed to these items being recycled. Requiring extra costs and creating a new bureaucracy to oversee a program to facilitate the recycling of bottles and cans would be a great deal for those who want more government, but not for the citizens who recycle, and not for the environment. Replacing a convenient and effective system like single-sort recycling is likely to reduce recycling as it inconveniences consumers. This is another example of Democrats seeking to grow government at taxpayers’ cost, without considering the unintended consequences. Call public officials and urge them to reject the Democrats’ attempt to increase the price paid for milk, pop, and other beverages. Single-sort recycling makes recycling easy, convenient and cost effective. Democrats need to get the message to not send this environmentally responsible idea to the political landfill.

To the editor: Democrats are pushing a plan to require Minnesotans to pay a 10 cent deposit on almost all beverage containers. While seemingly well intentioned, this proposal will result in reducing recycling rates, wasting the time of consumers and costing them more money. Under their plan, you pay more to purchase milk, pop, and almost all beverages in a container. In order to get money back, people must sort and separate cans and bottles, and store them where they can attract bugs and rodents until they are returned to a “redemption center” to be partly or fully refunded for the up-front cost. Contrast this with a system many Minnesotans already utilize called “single-sort recycling.” Under single-sort recycling, all recyclables (not just glass and aluminum, but also newspapers, junk mail, plastic, cardboard, etc.) into one collection basket. A local recycler picks up the recycling along with trash. Simple. Cost effective. And, yes, good for the environment. Last year the city of Minneapolis went to single-sort recycling and reported a Rep. PAT GAROFALO 63 percent increase in the R-Farmington, District recycling rate. 58B Recyclers currently

Get real citizen input for Lebanon Hills To the editor: They are going to do what? This is the question heard at a friend’s house in Apple Valley on Dakota County’s plan for Lebanon Hills Regional Park. The biggest part of this plan is to grade in a 5 percent grade trail into the park cutting ski and hiking trails numerous times. This park is called Lebanon Hills for a reason as there are many large steep hills and putting in a 5 percent grade for 6.5 miles means a linear strip mine type development of that length with hills cut down, berms added, and retaining walls galore. There is very little 5 percent topography in Lebanon Hills. The new trail (some call it a road) duplicates existing trails surrounding the park as well as the highline trail. Nothing new is being connected. In a letter last week, Valerie Dosland mentioned that she is confident in Dakota County as the development of mountain biking from the last plan worked. That development starting in 2001 began as this one with a large objection to a number of features but no objection to the mountain bike development. The result of the 2001 objection was to restart the Lebanon Hills planning with real

I believe that the American public is up to the challenge, but are our elected officials? Judging by U.S. Rep. John Kline’s recent opinion column, he is not. Kline offers no improvement alternatives or support, but instead chooses to spend his time (funded by all of us mind you) criticizing improvement actions that were developed by “his” Congress, supported by our constitutional process, our elections, and the Supreme Court. All of our federal elected officials are accountable (Republican and Democrat alike) for the outcome of this piece of historic legislation, and each had a role in its creation and rollout. It’s time all of them accept this reality and do the work we sent them to Washington to do – improve the lives of Americans in a way we could not do for ourselves. BRAD VERGIN Eagan

Teach, train employees to rise above minimum wage To the editor: Kevin McCarney posed a question in his letter published last week. Does John Van Hecke, executive director of Minnesota 20/20, care more about Enrique, the minimum wage earner, or the Democrat Party’s success in the 2014 midterm elections?

McCarney also explains reasoning from a business owner’s view on why raising the minimum wage is a bad idea. As a small business owner, I thank McCarney for his sentiment. Let’s look at the reasoning from the minimum wage earner’s view. On the surface, this looks great. Who wouldn’t want more money in his pocket? But wait: If I have to raise the wages of some of my employees at my hair salon, I’ll be laying off my receptionist and raising the price of haircuts a few bucks. Not only would my remaining stylists have to work harder, answering the phone, etc., but also imagine if Enrique was my receptionist. He’s now out of a job, and his expense for his family’s haircuts and any other affected businesses just went up. This isn’t to maintain my multi-million dollar wage. Any one of my friends will tell you that although I’ve owned this business for eight-plus years, I’m a full time accountant outside of my salon, and invest in rental properties just to support my family. After six years of doing the salon accounting, I finally rewarded myself with a whopping $900/month salary, which has never increased. (I can’t even round up to $1,000.) McCarney is dead on. Enrique is a pawn being used in Van Hecke’s game. Meanwhile, the “Enrique” I hired as a receptionist will someday go on to success as a hairstylist, being coached by my managers, learning the industry and making his mistakes along the way. He is currently earning minimum wage, but ultimately will become self-sufficient, because I made the investment in him. It’s the education. And we business owners are portrayed as the selfish and greedy. I’ll wager that I care more about Enrique than Van Hecke ever would. MARK BELLILE Lakeville

What am I missing?

executive fiat) are the crown jewels of his presidency. He and his administration are in charge of implementing ACA and should accept responsibility for success and failure. Instead we have seen this administration’s arrogance. Despite repeated warnings about the website, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius launched it. Thus, we have the current “mess.” Who else should we “blame”; better yet “hold responsible?” Mathiowetz blames the “GOP who failed to fund development of the websites to the necessary level.” Is $1 billion enough? The Government Accountability Office is indicates the IRS portion could be $534 million and HHS portion could be “well over $600 million.” An HHS official has indicated that there could be another $630 million in potential obligations (reference The Fact Checker). The first billion dollars for the website and infrastructure could have enabled the government to purchase insurance policies for over a million Americans without affecting the entire nation. Mathiowetz concludes that “we must go to a Medicare type system” or the “insurance companies will continue jerking the American people around.” The most jerking around the American people have seen in recent memory has been perpetrated by the Obama administration and ACA. Perhaps the recommendation is based upon various successes of big government: U.S. Postal Service (always broke), Social Security (turned into an easy pot of money and continually going broke), War on Poverty ($1 trillion/year and a higher percentage of poor after 49 years), Medicare and Medicaid (robbed and going broke), Department of Energy (created to lessen dependence on foreign oil 36 years ago), and the U.S. Tax Code/IRS (speaks for itself). Perhaps the “single payer” system is the end game for Obama and Mathiowetz will receive her wish. Just what we need, the IRS in charge healthcare or another government agency/bureaucracy to match past successes. To better understand the end game I recommend reading Obama’s book, “Dreams from My Father.”

To the editor: In a recent letter titled as above, Deborah Mathiowetz wondered why President Obama is being blamed “for the whole (Affordable Care Act) mess.” Well, it is his signature piece of legislation. ACA and the AL KRANZ associated exemptions (by Burnsville

Farmington resident recovering after hit-and-run

Lakeville teen dies in Dec. 4 crash A 17-year-old female driver was killed Wednesday morning on Dodd Boulevard (County Road 9) south of 190th Street in Lakeville. The victim was a student at Lakeville North High School. Lakeville police said the driver and passenger of the other vehicle suffered minor injuries. A preliminary investigation led police to believe the victim, who was driving her Pontiac Grand Prix southbound, lost control on the slush-covered roadway, slid sideways and was broadsided by a GMC

Acadia travelling in the opposite direction. Occupants of both vehicles were wearing seatbelts. The crash was reported at 9:45 a.m. and occurred one quarter mile north of Lakeville North High School. School was scheduled to open two hours late as a part of the regular school year calendar and not as a result of the weather conditions. School staff members were immediately notified and activated a crisis plan to assist students dealing with the death.

The Lakeville area received a coating of snow overnight and it had snowed on and off during the morning hours. A light mist was falling at the time of the crash. Dodd Boulevard remained closed for several hours. Lakeville Fire Department and Allina paramedics assisted at the scene. Lakeville police with assistance from the Minnesota State Patrol reconstruction team are investigating the crash. Names of all victims are being withheld pending notification of family members.

Arrest made after two people were struck in St. Paul by Andy Rogers SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Peterson received several injuries that required surgery. She was in a coma, and after some advances and setbacks, her doctors cut her coma medication in half on Tuesday. The driver of the car didn’t stop, but police found the car the following day about a mile away in a parking lot. Latocha Thomas, 40, of St. Paul was arrested on Nov. 29 in connection to the hit-and-run. Since 2011, Thomas was cited five times for not carrying proof of insurance as well as failure to stop. A fund has been set up to help pay for Peterson’s medical expenses. Checks can be sent to any Associated Bank branch or Associated Bank, 5353 Wayzata Blvd., St. Louis Park, MN 55416, payable to “Bekka Peterson Medical Benefit Fund.� Her Caring Bridge website is www. caringbridge.org/visit/bekkapeterson.

Farmington’s Rebekka Peterson is showing improvement and is “stable and resting,� according to her CaringBridge website, earlier this week after being the victim of a hit-and-run during the morning hours of Nov. 25. Peterson, a student at St. Thomas University and 2010 graduate of Farmington High School, was hit by a 2013 gray Mazda 3, which was heading westbound on Grand Avenue near the university during the early morning hours. She was getting out of a cab with her friends when she was struck and was taken to the hospital with multiple injuries. Nicholas Bergeland, of Wayzata, was also hit. He was listed in stable condition last week. Andy Rogers According to her CaringBridge site, Email andy.rogers@ecm-inc.com.

Former Rosemount resident charged with tax crimes

by Andy Rogers SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

The Farmington Education Foundation is looking for a jolt of new members to reenergize its campaign to supporting the School District 192. The foundation has served as a booster club for the district for nearly 15 years, but recently activity has decreased. “We’ve been looking for new volunteers to breathe some new life into the organization,� foundation chair Cheryl Retterath said. “It’s a pretty easy gig. It’s just a matter of finding people.� Several former members have had their terms expire and left the committee. Retterath said many former members are also people who volunteer “for just about anything, between Rotary, chamber, kids sports, and church events. Those are the same folks that are involved in every other things in the community.� Retterath said she would like to see the foundation built back up by

bringing in new members and finding more corporate sponsors. Other area educational foundations in South St. Paul, Hastings and Hopkins have taken off, while others have faded. The foundation’s goal is to sponsor a variety of initiatives, including grants for teachers and scholarships for students. Plans for the current school year include distributing $5,000 in grant funds and a $1,000 scholarship to a Farmington High School senior. Applications for the scholarship are due April 1. Grant requests are due March 31. The foundation hopes to build the grant to $10,000 and higher in future years. The foundation, which receives funding through donations, used to partner with the district for a dinner and silent auction fundraiser that had attracted more than 100 participants. The foundation was established in 1999 with

Sex, drugs and rock â&#x20AC;&#x2122;nâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; roll come to North Dakota Authorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s family saga focuses on turbulent times by John Gessner SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Paul Legler remembers when sex, drugs and rock â&#x20AC;&#x2122;nâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; roll came to North Dakota. Much of the Burnsville authorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first novel, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Song of Destiny,â&#x20AC;? is set during the turbulent era when he was coming of age on his familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s farm near Jamestown, N.D. A family saga about two brothers on divergent but ultimately similar paths, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Song of Destinyâ&#x20AC;? was published in September by North Star Press of St. Cloud. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of it centers on that particular period of time, the late â&#x20AC;&#x2122;60s to early â&#x20AC;&#x2122;70s,â&#x20AC;? said Legler, 58. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sex, drugs and rock â&#x20AC;&#x2122;nâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; roll are coming to even the smallest towns in North Dakota and Minnesota. The cultural change is extremely rapid during that period of time. The older generation had a hard time understanding some of the cultural changes that were happening.â&#x20AC;? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the first novel by Legler, a lawyer and former Washington, D.C., policy wonk who served under President Bill Clinton. He graduated from the University of Minnesota Law School in 1979 and practiced for 10 years in Minnesota and North Dakota. Keenly interested in public policy, Legler used a Bush Fellowship he received in 1990 to earn a masterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s degree in public administration from the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard. He also worked as a public policy analyst for the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Malcolm Wiener Center for Social Policy. In 1991, then-Arkansas Gov. Clinton was intrigued by the centerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work on welfare reform. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I did a small amount of work for his campaign, and when he got elected, I got a political appointment and moved to Washington, D.C., and worked on public policy there,â&#x20AC;? Legler said. During his eight years as an attorney adviser in the Department of Health and Human Services, Legler played a key role in crafting part of the historic welfare reform law signed by Clinton in 1996. â&#x20AC;&#x153;About a third of the welfare reform legislation dealt with child-support enforcement. I was in charge of developing that,â&#x20AC;? Legler said. Those provisions remain â&#x20AC;&#x153;entirely intactâ&#x20AC;? and are â&#x20AC;&#x153;credited with really turning the system around,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been some research more recently that shows as the importance of cash welfare assistance has declined, the importance of child support has increased,â&#x20AC;? Legler said. Today heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a public policy consultant with his own company, Innovative Social Policy LLC. A noted expert and frequent speaker on child support, fatherhood and welfare,

EDUCATION, from 5A

Paul Legler Legler consults for governments and nonprofits. His company also develops and runs demonstration projects such as Hennepin Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Co-Parent Court, which helps unmarried parents. An incessant reader and fiction lover, Legler began writing â&#x20AC;&#x153;Song of Destinyâ&#x20AC;? four years ago when the delay of a project he was working on freed up some time. The book traces five generations of a fictional family, from Germany and Russia to present day. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not autobiographical, despite the familiar rural North Dakota setting and the fact that he has an older brother, Legler said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Basically, the story is about a family growing up on the plains,â&#x20AC;? he said. An older brother returns from the Vietnam War, â&#x20AC;&#x153;damaged by his experience but in some unknown way. So the family tries to cope with that. The older brother slides downhill further and gets into trouble and eventually robs a bank. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The younger brother tries to go off in a different direction and actually becomes a monk at St. Johnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Abbey (in Collegeville, Minn.). Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about the two brothers. On the surface, they go different directions in life, but I think the careful reader will find theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not so different after all. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a story about guilt and redemption.â&#x20AC;? Legler submitted his manuscript to North Star Press, which specializes in regional authors, at the suggestion of a writing instructor at The Loft Literary Center. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The reactions have been very gratifying,â&#x20AC;? said Legler, who has three grown children with his wife, Julie, and is working on a second novel. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been getting emails from all over the country saying they love the book. As a writer, you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hope for more than that.â&#x20AC;? Stores carrying the book include Barnes & Noble in Apple Valley, Legler said. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also available online through Amazon and Barnes & Noble. John Gessner can be at 952-846-2031 or john.gessner@ecm-inc.com.

Eagan council again frustrated by Comcastâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s perceived lack of transparency by Jessica Harper SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Eagan City Council members found themselves once again laying into Comcast for its perceived lack of transparency when raising fees. Less than a year after Eagan officials grilled the Philadelphia telecommunications company about its rate changes, Comcast asked the city for permission to increase its late fees from $8 to $9.50. Comcast representatives claim the fees recoup the cost of collecting delinquent payments, but submitted to the city a redacted cost analysis study â&#x20AC;&#x201D; which council members greatly criticized Dec. 3. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I feel the information we received is meaningless,â&#x20AC;? Council Member Paul Bakken said. The document given the council explained the studyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s methodology and concluded that the company spends $13 per late fee. But nearly all other costs were blacked out, leaving council members with a number of unanswered questions. Mayor Mike Maguire also criticized the company for failing to provide the report until a few days before the meeting at which its request would be heard. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The council likes to have information in a timely fashion so we can read it,â&#x20AC;? he said. Citing the redacted study, the council voted unanimously Dec. 3 to neither approve nor deny Comcastâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s request, but to

retain the right to regulate late fee increases in the future. The effect of the decision is to allow the fee to rise. The Burnsville City Council unanimously approved Comcastâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fee increase Dec. 3 with little comment and no objections. Eagan officials have butted heads with the communications giant for several years. Most recently, their frustration boiled over in February when Comcast announced major changes that included new fees and a requirement for basic cable subscribers to obtain a digital transport adapter, a small box that allows programming to be viewed by decrypting digital signals. City officials were inundated with calls from Eagan Comcast customers concerned and confused about the fees, prompting the council to add the item to its Feb. 19 meeting agenda. At that meeting, council members expressed frustration with their lack of regulatory authority over the matter and criticized the company for what they said was a lack of transparency and poor communication with customers. Eagan, in partnership with Burnsville, had previously maintained regulatory authority over its cable franchise. In 2007, the Federal Communications Commission stripped many cities of that authority after Comcast submitted a petition to the federal regulator stating that the

company could be effectively regulated by the free market. The FCC decided that a city cannot regulate cable providers if at least 15 percent of its population subscribes to a competitor such as Dish Network. A survey at the time concluded 16.5 percent of Eaganâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s population subscribed to satellite. Since losing their regulatory authority, officials in Eagan and other cities have been disappointed by Comcastâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rising rates. After the Feb. 19 meeting, Eagan officials sent a letter to the FCC and local representatives in Congress voicing concern with what they perceived to be Comcastâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lack of transparency and poor customer service. Eagan also complained about the inconsistency of allowing some cities, such as Inver Grove Heights, to regulate cable providers but not other cities, due to subscriber percentages. Though the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hands are tied in relation to most fee increases, Eagan has authority over late fee increases under its franchise agreement with Comcast. Maguire said he hopes Comcast will in the future be willing to seek the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s input on changes to rates and fees. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would like more dialogue when it affects more residents,â&#x20AC;? he said. A copy of Comcastâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s redacted study submitted to the city is available at www. sunthisweek.com.

Skolt Scott, of Golden Valley, and David Gunderson, of Brooklyn Park, were in full Minnesota Vikings makeup Tuesday morning, Dec. 3, as they witnessed the groundbreaking for the new $975 million multipurpose stadium that will replace the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome in downtown Minneapolis. These two Vikings football fans, part of Thee Viking World Order, are no strangers to other loyal fans and to Vikings management. The duo is part of a very active Vikings fan group and played a major role in lobbying for a new stadium by attending countless hearings of the Minnesota Legislature. Gunderson calls himself Sir Gunnar and said he wears a different outfit and inscribes a different message on his face for every game and public appearance. On groundbreaking day, Gunderson said he had no message except to emphasize defense. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We worked years to get to this point and now we can participate in a celebration,â&#x20AC;? Scott said. The Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority and the Minnesota Vikings, in partnership with Mortenson Construction and project associate Thor Construction, led the groundbreaking ceremony for the new stadium. The event signifies the start of construction on the 65,000-seat, 1.7 million-square-foot facility, scheduled for completion in July 2016. Vikings owners Zygi Wilf and Mark Wilf accepted congratulatory wishes from many stadium supporters prior to taking a jaunt into the east side parking lot where two large earth-moving machines were placed as a backdrop for the groundbreaking. A short program in a large tent on Metrodome property kicked off the activities for the day. The program aimed at thanking many of those responsible for the birth of a new Vikings stadium. Michele Kelm-Helgen, chair of the Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority, called the stadium iconic, which seemed to be the word of the day as it was used by other principals: the Wilfs; Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak; and David Mortenson, president of Mortenson Construction Co. of Minneapolis. Kelm-Helgen saluted the architectural firm of HKS Architects and said the general contractor, Mortenson, is the best stadium builder in the country. She said the stadium will attract thousands of workers from Minnesota, including minorities. The new stadium will be the home for the Minnesota Vikings but also a location for high school and college sporting events, youth football, marching band competitions and Hmong New Yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s celebrations. In-line skaters who frequent the Metrodome will again be invited to use the new stadium facilities, Kelm-Helgen said. Kelm-Helgen said it is possible that the new stadium will be the host of a Super Bowl, a Final Four or a national championship football game. She said the Vikings are finalists to host the 2018 Super Bowl. The stadium is also expected to be the home of music concerts and other special events. Zygi Wilf spoke to the more than 1,500 during the pre-groundbreaking program, saying, â&#x20AC;&#x153;What a great day this is for everyone in Minnesota.â&#x20AC;? He conveyed thanks specifically to the state of Minnesota, the city

Morrie Lanning for their work in getting the project approved. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This team stepped up and got the job done,â&#x20AC;? Wilf said. Minnesota Vikings star running back Adrian Peterson said the day was â&#x20AC;&#x153;a dreamâ&#x20AC;? for him. He jokingly tempered his remarks, saying he was not looking forward to playing outside at TCF Stadium for two years until the new stadium is ready in 2016. Mortenson said â&#x20AC;&#x153;it is a pleasure and enormous privilegeâ&#x20AC;? to build one of the biggest structures ever constructed in Minnesota history. He said the new stadium would be a world-class stadium and will be a lasting source of pride. Mortenson said hundreds of stories will be told as the stadium develops. He quoted Winston Churchill: â&#x20AC;&#x153;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;We shape our buildings and they then shape us.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Rybak said the stadium project was â&#x20AC;&#x153;all about weaving it all together in an urban fabric.â&#x20AC;? Dayton received a standing ovation as he was introduced. He has often been mentioned as the pushing force in the new Vikings stadium becoming a reality. Dayton again called the stadium the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Stadiumâ&#x20AC;? and said it will result in economic revitalization for the state. Construction of the new stadium will require nearly 4.3 mil-

lion work hours and will involve 7,500 trades people from 19 different trades and hundreds of local subcontractors and supplies. In addition, the Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority and the Vikings have established a Targeted Business Program that sets an 11 percent and 9 percent goal for construction contracts for the project to be awarded to women- and minority-owned business enterprises, respectively. A number of subcontracts have been executed in the past week, many of which are going to Minnesota-based companies: â&#x20AC;˘ Ames Construction of Burnsville will complete mass excavation, utilities and demolition of the Metrodome, working with Frattalone Companies of Little Canada for demolition services. â&#x20AC;˘ Veit Companies of Rogers will construct the drilled pier foundations. â&#x20AC;˘ Lejune Steel Company of Minneapolis will provide steel fabrication for the new stadium, and Dannyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Construction, a certified women-owned business in Shakopee, will handle steel erection for the new stadium. â&#x20AC;˘ Tarraf Construction, a certified minority-owned company from Eden Prairie, will be providing container services for excavation and demolition.

Sports Irish take a shot, but Eden Prairie keeps title Slow start dooms Rosemount in Prep Bowl loss by Mike Shaughnessy SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Conventional wisdom holds that an underdog has to deal with little to no pressure, but that’s not always true. To have a chance of beating two-time defending state champion Eden Prairie, Rosemount knew it had to play as well or better than it had all season. That brings its own kind of pressure. The Irish couldn’t respond the way they wanted as Eden Prairie scored on its third play from scrimmage and held off two Rosemount scoring threats in the third quarter on its way to a 28-7 victory in the Class 6A football championship game Friday night at the Metrodome. Eden Prairie (12-0) became the first team to win three consecutive state large-school championships. The last two years the Eagles beat a South Suburban Conference team 28-7 in the title game. Lakeville North was runner-up to Eden Prairie last year. Anthony Anderson, a 235-pound senior running back, rushed for 165 yards on 19 carries and one touchdown. He also caught a 51-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Ryan Connelly. Rosemount’s offense started slowly; the Irish didn’t get their initial first down until the final minute of the first quarter. The Irish, who finished 112, had 157 yards to Eden Prairie’s 403. “It’s just frustrating that we started so poorly with two three-and-outs,” Rosemount coach Jeff Erdmann said. “That puts you behind the eight ball. But there’s no shame in losing to what they are.” Eden Prairie’s Belal Omar returned the opening kickoff 31 yards to the Eagles 44-yard line. The Rosemount defense fired up the Irish sideline with stops on the first two plays, but then Eden Prairie struck. Facing third and eight and under heavy pressure from two Rosemount linebackers, Connelly flipped a screen pass to Charlie Venable, who took it 54 yards for a touchdown.

“He’s kind of in the shadow of the other two guys (Eden Prairie running backs Anderson and Dan Fisher),” Eagles coach Mike Grant said of Venable. “But he’s a great back. We’ve been talking about running that play for him all year and it seemed like the right time. “I wish I could tell you we perfected that play, but we don’t run it well in practice all that much. That was about as good as it could be.” Payton Otterdahl got his hand on the conversion attempt and Eden Prairie’s lead remained at 6-0. The Eagles moved to the Rosemount 19 on their next possession before the Irish pushed back. Eden Prairie tried a flea-flicker on fourth and 12 but Carter Yepsen broke up a pass intended for Venable. But Eden Prairie landed another hard shot when Anderson lined up at receiver and caught a 51yard touchdown pass from Connelly. Erdmann said the Irish expected Eden Prairie to attempt that play and had been practicing for that situation all week, but Anderson still was able to get behind the secondary. If Anderson goes out for a pass, it “tends to strike fear in the corners. If he catches the ball, you’ve got to tackle him,” Grant said. Connelly then threw to John Lanasa for a twopoint conversion and a 14-0 lead. At this point, Rosemount had run only six plays, while Eden Prairie had six first downs – and 14 points. “They just played back and forced us to drive the ball,” Erdmann said. “We had a couple of motion penalties, a dropped ball, an incomplete pass. Those are drive killers. You have to play a perfect game against them. You can’t have that stuff.” Rosemount didn’t get a first down until Jackson Erdmann’s 7-yard run to the Irish 35 with 25 seconds remaining in the first half. Several more first downs followed – including one when the Eden Prairie defense jumped offside on fourth and two – on a 77-yard, 14play drive that ended with Tyrek Cross’ 4-yard touchdown run with 5:41 left in the second quarter. Anderson pushed Eden

He made a couple of moves at the line of scrimmage before finding a hole and dragging a tackler the final seven yards. Rosemount held the ball most of the third quarter and moved inside the Eden Prairie 20 on consecutive possessions, but couldn’t cut into the Eagles’ lead. Cross was tackled for a 1-yard loss on fourth and three at the Eden Prairie 4. Rosemount forced Eden Prairie to punt and threatened to score again, but Erdmann’s fourth-and-seven pass intended for Nate Sackett was batted down in the end zone. “Our defense got a stop down there,” Jeff Erdmann said. “We had four downs to get 10 yards. You’ve got to be able to get that in.” Connelly ran for 13 yards on fourth and six, moving the ball to the Irish 15 for a key fourth-quarter first down as silence fell over the Rosemount side of the Metrodome. Although the Irish

Local skaters help Gophers Several players with Dakota County ties have helped the University of Minnesota men’s hockey team stay at No. 1 in the national rankings. Freshmen Hudson Fasching of Burnsville and Justin Kloos of Lakeville are tied for third on the team in scoring with 14 points each. Fashing has six goals and eight assists and a plus-14 rating; Kloos has five goals and nine assists and is a plus-8. Fasching played for Apple Valley in the 2010 state Class AA tournament and was with the U.S. National Development Team program in Ann Arbor, Mich., the last two seasons. Kloos, the 2012 Mr. Hockey Award winner while playing for Lakeville South, spent one season in the U.S. Hockey League before joining the Gophers. Sophomore defenseman Brady Skjei of Lakeville has played in all 14 games and has four points and a plus-9 rating. Skjei skated for Lakeville North in the 2010 state tournament and also spent two years with the U.S. National Development team. Sophomore forward A.J. Michaelson of Apple Valley has one goal and one assist in eight games.

eventually held on downs, Eden Prairie’s final touchdown was set up by linebacker Matt Cheeseman’s interception and return to the Irish 5. Dan Fisher then scored on a 1-yard run with 4:35 left as Eden Prairie put the game out of reach. Jackson Erdmann was the Irish’s leading rusher with 63 yards on nine carries. No other Rosemount player had more than 20 yards. Jackson Erdmann also completed seven of 17 passes for 41 yards. Senior tight end Gabe Ehlers had two catches for 17 yards. Rosemount had season lows for yardage (157) and points (seven). The Irish went into the Prep Bowl averaging 38.8 points and had scored at least 21 in each of their previous 12 games. Eden Prairie won its 17th consecutive game dating to late in the 2012 regular season. The Eagles are 9-1 in state championship games. Rosemount lost for the first time since late August and had an 11-game winning streak stopped.

(Photo by Rick Orndorf) This was the Irish’s third appearance in a state championship game. Rosemount beat Moorhead 40-14 for the state large-school title in 1981, the last year state championship games were held outdoors. The state finals are scheduled to be outdoors the next two years

as the Metrodome is demolished to make way for a new stadium. Rosemount also reached the state largeschool final in 2010, losing to Wayzata 31-14. Email Mike Shaughnessy at mike.shaughnessy@ecminc.com.

COURAGE, from 1A Sarah said her marriage was not good for the past four years as her then husband would yell and sometimes throw things, but only since about the first of the year did it turn violent against her. She said her husband hit her during 12 separate incidents. Each of the previous 11 times, she either went to stay with family or held back information from them, friends and co-workers. She would write about the beatings in detail and cry, holding out hope the violence would end. She feared leaving the relationship would be impossible because she didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t earn enough money to support her children on her own. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I worried more about my children than I worried about myself,â&#x20AC;? she said. As an immigrant from Africa, Sarah came from a country with a maledominated society where domestic violence was only made a crime in 2005. She said women often would go back to their husbands even if relationships had turned violent. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hear about it in our culture,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In my culture you are married for life. If your husband hits you, it is your luck.â&#x20AC;?

She said her husband didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t care about their marriage and wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t working at all to make it better. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I did my best to change him,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would avoid saying anything he could take the wrong way. I thought: â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Tomorrow, he is going to change.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;? The last beating she endured hurt her around the face so badly she couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hide it. She said she knew in her mind that the next time could turn worse if her husband had a knife or a gun. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I thought: â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;You will die one day,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? she said. She told a friend, who encouraged her to go to Lewis House where she found the help she needed. There she met with police to whom she related what happened. She was treated by doctors who told her she could have lost her eyesight because of the last beating. Staff at Lewis House helped Sarah navigate the court process to obtain a restraining order and work through child support issues. They helped her and her children move from their residence to a new place with below market-rate rent that allows her to save money as she waits for approval to move into income-qualifying housing. They also helped her

While she still has the same job, Sarah is hoping to take a program that will help her get a full-time job in the health care field. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They changed my life,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is my family. Everybody here is nice. They listen to you, it is not like the people I work with. They hear you. They notice when you are hurting.â&#x20AC;? Sarah attends a support group for victims of domestic abuse, which has been important to her, to know she is not alone in her struggles. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They tell their story and how they changed their lives,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Listening to them tells you a lot about yourself and how to change yourself.â&#x20AC;? When asked if it was difficult for her to talk about the abuse in the group, she said: â&#x20AC;&#x153;I talk and I cry, I talk and I cry. Before, all I did was cry.â&#x20AC;? Her children have also received counseling services to help them deal with issues related to the abuse. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I grew up in a good family,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They raised us with love.

Minnesota Energy warns of utility scam Minnesota Energy Resources, Rosemount, has received information that its customers have been contacted by people fraudulently claiming to be company employees and demanding payment or service will be disconnected. The payment could be for a utility bill or equipment upgrade. In this particular scam, callers appear to be targeting ethnic restaurants and customers with Spanish surnames. The scammers are using technology that will fraudulently indicate on caller ID that they are representatives of the local utility. They demand payment within hours or service will be terminated. Customers are told to purchase prepaid debit cards, Green Dot cards, or similar cards and then call back to make payment by giving the scammer the account numbers of the purchased card. While most customers recognize the scam, a few have made payments. Minnesota Energy Resources will never ask for a prepaid card as payment for any reason. Threats of immediate disconnection are a sign that customers might have been contacted by a scammer. To confirm suspicions, customers should follow these tips and report the behavior: â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Calmly write down any information the caller provides to you. Take note of the call date and time, caller ID, a description of the caller and any details revealed to you by the caller. â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Do not provide any private information or banking information. â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Contact your utility to verify if this was a legitimate call. If not, call the police to report the scam. Again, Minnesota Energy Resources will not ask for prepaid cards or other electronic means (PayPal, for example) as a form of payment.

Since 2006 the city eliminated 12 positions, The police department makes up 45.45 percent of personnel cost and 37 percent of the total expenditures in the 2014 budget. Council Member Doug Bonar credited the administration and council for being able to work together to create the budget. It took six work sessions to settle, but last year the 2013 budget wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t approved until later in December. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was heartbreaking, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also by far the most

District 196 teachers recognized for enhancing learning with technology Dakota Hills Middle School science teacher Ross Albertson and Apple Valley High School science teacher Chris Lee were selected recipients of the TIES Exceptional Teacher Awards in District 196 for the 2013-14 school year. Sponsored by the education technology cooperative TIES, the annual awards honor teachers in member districts who effectively integrate technology into the learning process. Albertson and Lee will be recognized with other award recipients at the TIES Annual Conference in Minneapolis Dec. 16. Dakota Hills Middle School students are using Chromebooks in their science classes this year thanks to a grant Albertson received from the Lockheed Corporation last year. He proposed the grant so that students could use the devices to work on Google Docs files to enter and analyze lab data and report their findings. The response by students and staff has been â&#x20AC;&#x153;energizing,â&#x20AC;? according to Albertsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s colleagues who nominated him for the TIES

Exceptional Teacher Award. His leadership has prompted other teachers to find ways to better utilize technology in their classrooms. Lee has been sharing his twin passions of science and technology with the students at Apple Valley High School for more than two decades. He has been a pioneer in using technology to enhance the learning process. He was an early user of cellphone technology to stay connected with students and continues to use text messaging to share information and engage students in the learning process with poll questions and information for them to ponder. Lee was â&#x20AC;&#x153;flippingâ&#x20AC;? his classroom before the teaching method became popular, videotaping lectures, demonstrations and studyguide sessions, then uploading them to YouTube for his students to watch as homework. Through the use of Moodle, Lee integrated all facets of his curriculum online. Each day, students are using his site to review lectures and take practice tests to build better understanding of the content.

More than 650 District 196 students earn AP scholar honors The College Board recognized 666 District 196 high school students for their performance on Advanced Placement course exams taken during the 2012-13 school year. District 196 high schools offer 24 different AP courses, which have been audited and approved by the College Board, a nonprofit organization of colleges, universities, secondary schools and higher education institutions focused on college readiness programs. Students who complete an AP course can take an optional exam and earn college credit, depending on their score on the exam and admission requirements at the college or university they attend. An AP exam score of 3 or higher (on a scale of 1 to 5) earns credit at many of the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s colleges and universities. The following students were named national AP scholars. They received an average score of at least 4 on all AP exams taken and

scores of 4 or higher on eight or more of the exams. Apple Valley High School â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Mitchell Dawson and Nader Helmy; Eagan High School â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Kasey Ah Pook, Aaron Anderson, Madison Janvrin, Joseph Keegan, Jonathon Sabel, Kevin Wei and Aliya Zhdanov; Eastview High School â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Kelly Bryant, Cara Desmond, Cuong Duong, Landon Hafstad, Eric Holland, Emily Jewell, Jimmy Ji, Emily Kilen, Jonathan Lenz, Jennifer Loomis, Prithviraj Mahida, Ryan McGuire, Kaitlyn Moe, Dung Nguyen, Asheshananda Rambachan, Audrey Roche, Joshua Ruth, Vladimir Sagalovskiy, Aidan Schmitt, Nicholas Selchow, Cole Stapleton, Zachary Tollefson, Lane Underdahl, Anna Underhill and Karin Yndestad; and Rosemount High School â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Cody Poole and Paul Wollersheim.

drama free weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been in the budget process,â&#x20AC;? Mayor Todd Larson said. The city received Local Government Aid in the amount of $245,329 for the first time in nearly a decade. The city used the fund for one-time purchases. City Administrator Dave McKnight cited a situation in 2003 when LGA was cut mid-year forcing the city to adjust its budget as the reason to use the funds for one-time purchases. Most of the LGA funds went toward the Fire Department capital improvement plan, which included funds for the departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s retirement, uniform allowance, new equipment, and fire station improvements. The city also bonded for a long-term capital

improvement plan for city streets that will include improvements to Pilot Knob, 195th Street, Elm Street, and Ash Street between 2014-2020.

Positive economic signs McKnight also noted several positives about the financial condition of Farmington. With an increase in building permits, revenue should be increased in 2014. Sheriff sales and Notice of Pendency filings, which starts the process of foreclosures, is down significantly in 2013. Delinquent taxes are also being repaid, and liquor store profits are up.

Nearly 90 percent of resident students stay in District 196 Nearly 90 percent of school-aged children who live in Independent School District 196 are attending District 196 schools this year, according to student enrollment and census data maintained by the district. There were 30,507 school-aged children living within District 196 on Oct. 1. Of those children, 26,727 are attending District 196 schools, giving the district an 88 percent â&#x20AC;&#x153;capture rateâ&#x20AC;? among resident students. Anything over 80 percent is considered a high capture rate in Minnesota, according to former state demographer Hazel Reinhardt of Hazel Reinhardt Consulting in Edina. Capture rate is a reflection on the quality of local public schools, Reinhardt said, as well as the presence of charter schools, nonpublic schools and other educational alternatives in and near the district. The number of children living in District 196 who are home-schooled or attend traditional nonpublic schools has averaged 7.6 percent over the past five years. The other approximately 4.4 percent of school-aged children in District 196 attend charter schools or public schools in other districts. Students who open enroll into the district are not included when calculating capture rate.

December 5, 2013 DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

LEGACY, from 1A tee is sending is that they are giving out awards for hawking insurance on television now,â&#x20AC;? Breitmayer wrote in an email. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Finally, someone is seeing the light.â&#x20AC;? Breitmayer returns to Rosemount this weekend to accept the Legacy Award during intermission of the 7 p.m. OnStage production of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Letters.â&#x20AC;? At that time, he will speak for a few moments about his time at the school and life since then. Breitmayer credits longtime Rosemount-Apple Valley-Eagan School District teachers Steve Boehlke, Judy Sagen and Thomas Hoffman for encouraging his love of the arts. He said the first junior high production he starred in was directed by Sagen. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was just enjoying singing, getting attention and overacting,â&#x20AC;? he said of his junior high days. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I did the same thing through four years at Rosemount High, too. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think I ever seriously thought I could actually act â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;when I grew up.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; I mean, regular people from suburbs in Minnesota donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t become

professional actors, right?â&#x20AC;? Having appeared in 12 theater productions and singing in choir, he said his teachers molded him and created the foundation for everything he built on after high school. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They taught me how to do the work,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They were my first training. They opened my eyes to the beauty and joy of the arts, but also the necessity of learning what was craft. Inspiration is not enough. They taught me how to focus, project, listen and interpret and breathe and make your communications specific and in the moment, with an audience. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They encouraged me to keep going. And Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t easy because I was a much more selfish performer back then when it came to giving to others on stage â&#x20AC;Ś more out of blind fear and insecurity than out of intention.â&#x20AC;? Not long after graduating from Gustavus Adolphus College in 1988, Breitmayer took an improv class at Dudley Riggs Brave New Workshop and was offered $50 a week to become the five-member castâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;sixth.â&#x20AC;?

â&#x20AC;&#x153;And of course I said: â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;No way. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be bored out of my mindâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;Ś I mean: â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Thank you, thank you, thank you!â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;? Performing seven shows a week and five improv sets a week, Breitmayer called the three and a half years he spent at Dudleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an amazing training ground. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That was the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Aha!â&#x20AC;&#x2122; moment,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I walked out on that legendary stage that first night, and people were howling. It was pure bliss. â&#x20AC;Ś Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been 22 years since I did my last show at Dudleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had mostly a great life as an actor since, but I have never laughed so hard in my life, as I did working at The Brave New Workshop.â&#x20AC;?

Back home Breitmayer was 12 when he moved to Minnesota with his mother and sisters after his parentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; divorce. The family later moved to Eagan when it was in the Rosemount High School attendance area. He played football and tennis growing up in what he called a safe and supportive environment filled with school and friends.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was taught to be interested and see the wonderfulness of difference,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And I was exposed to a pretty good deal, all things considered. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m very grateful for that. I have a lot of life skills as a result. I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe I just said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;life skills.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;? Breitmayer, his wife, 1988 RHS graduate Michelle Pederson, and their son, Jack, 8, have taken a little bit of Minnesota with them to life in Los Angeles. He said he built a â&#x20AC;&#x153;big Minnesota deckâ&#x20AC;? and has many friends who are transplants from the Gopher State. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is an entertainment industry Minnesota Mafia out here, and it is going to take over the place if we have anything to do with it,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are swarming â&#x20AC;Ś and soon â&#x20AC;Ś very soon â&#x20AC;Ś will be in charge. Ha.â&#x20AC;? He said he misses the greenness of Minnesota summers, the lakes, trips to the Boundary Waters for last-minute fishing, the vibrant live arts scene and family.

thing else for a living. He describes his journey as one of a â&#x20AC;&#x153;working actor,â&#x20AC;? whose primary job has been auditioning. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you are booking one out of 10 projects you are seen for, you are kicking butt in this town,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some years, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve narrowed that spread substantially.â&#x20AC;? Breitmayer said he continues to study and work at his craft, and credited acting teacher Jocelyn Jones with being one of the greatest teachers heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s had in any subject. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had a lot of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;book learninâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x2122; in my life,â&#x20AC;? said Breitmayer, who has a bachelor of arts degree in religion and considered obtaining his masterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in theology. Aside from developing his ability to deliver lines, Jones taught him how to administrate his career and work smart. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She held our feet to the fire when we were lazy or scared and not working to find people to connect to and places to infiltrate the industry and prove ourselves Working actor as invaluable,â&#x20AC;? he said. Breitmayer said he â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a marathon, not a canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t imagine doing any- sprint.â&#x20AC;?

He said he enters each audition prepared as best he can and tries not to beat himself up when heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not thrilled with what he did. He has worked with Jim Carrey, James Caan and William Shatner. His film credits include â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jingle All the Way,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Changelingâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;A Serious Man.â&#x20AC;? Having done more than 60 stage productions, traveled internationally with Minneapolis-based â&#x20AC;&#x153;Triple Espresso,â&#x20AC;? and been in movies and TV shows, Breitmayerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recent work includes â&#x20AC;&#x153;Coffee, Kill Boss,â&#x20AC;? which premiered this summer at the Austin Film Festival, and appearances in the new FX television series â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fargo.â&#x20AC;? As for advice, he says: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Follow your bliss. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be afraid to dream big. Get a good agent. Be nice to the crew. They got there two hours before you did and will leave two hours after you do. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re scared â&#x20AC;Ś do it anyway. And, most importantly, share your sandwich.â&#x20AC;?

Big Jim, Bette Davis and pulse checking; Breitmayer reviews his acting journey This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Legacy Award winner, Peter Breitmayer, a 1983 Rosemount High School graduate and former Eagan and Apple Valley Peter resident, enter- Breitmayer tained some questions from the newspaper in advance of the award presentation Saturday, Dec. 7. We allowed him â&#x20AC;&#x153;to have fun with it,â&#x20AC;? and these are some of the results. Q: When did acting emerge as an interest? A: Most living residents of Rosemount will never forget my seminal performance as Captain â&#x20AC;&#x153;Big Jimâ&#x20AC;? Warington, in

auto

the 1977 production of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Little Mary Sunshineâ&#x20AC;? at Rosemount Middle School, directed (if memory serves) by the lovely Judy Sagen. I knew then and there that if I could do this kind of melodramatic musical comedy, I could do anything. I think people were shocked at the depth I brought to â&#x20AC;&#x153;Big Jim,â&#x20AC;? the Royal Canadian Mountie. Q: What was going on in your life/mind at the time? A: I probably spent most of my time worrying I might accidentally score a goal for the other team in seventh-grade soccer. No wait â&#x20AC;Ś that happened. I mean I worried about doing it again. Q: What were you like in high

give to someone who wants to follow in your footsteps? A: As Bette Davis said after some young aspiring starlet asked her what the secret was to making it to Hollywood, she said: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Take Fountain.â&#x20AC;? As in Fountain Avenue, often the least jammed road through the center of town. You had to be there. Q: Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the most fun youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had in your career? A: Being in front of an audience when you can feel them eating out of your hand, is not like anything else in the world. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pretty satisfying. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s happened a couple dozen times in the last 30 years â&#x20AC;Ś and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not bad. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Tad Johnson

was in college: A: Well, I could move to Minneapolis and try to get an internship in â&#x20AC;&#x153;nonprofit theater administration.â&#x20AC;? THAT field would be practical AND very lucrative. Q: On career choices as a post graduate: A: I joke with my wife that my backup plan is orchestra conductor â&#x20AC;&#x201C; much easier to slip right into than acting. Q: Are there some well-known actors who have inspired you?

Hand bells for the holidays Toll Free quartet featured at Dec. 14 Rosemount concert by Andrew Miller Holiday performances of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ole & Lenaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Family Christmasâ&#x20AC;? will be 7 p.m. Wednesday SUN THISWEEK and Thursday, Dec. 18 and 19, on the main stage at Burnsville Performing Arts Center, DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE 12600 Nicollet Ave. Tickets are $20 at the box office, by phone at 800-982-2787 or Rosemountâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s St. Joseph online at Ticketmaster.com. (Photo submitted) Catholic Church is ringing in the holiday season with a hand bell concert next weekend. The 6:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 14, concert will see performances by the Twin Cities-based Toll Free Handbell Quartet along with the churchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hand bell choir. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The children use what are called â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;little ringersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x201C; they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t use the really big bells the quartet uses,â&#x20AC;? said Bill Bradley, liturgist at St. Joseph. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one of those things you have to hear â&#x20AC;&#x201C; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really quite wonderful.â&#x20AC;? Toll Free, whose mem-

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Sweeney Toddâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; in Burnsville

bers met through the larger Bells of the Lakes hand bell ensemble before forming their own group, will be performing holiday standards at the Rosemount concert such as â&#x20AC;&#x153;Deck the Hallsâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re Mean One, Mr. Grinch,â&#x20AC;? as well less traditional fare including â&#x20AC;&#x153;Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;We like to explore all over the musical spectrum,â&#x20AC;? said Toll Free member Christina Wood, a parishioner at St. Joseph church and Eagan resident. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most people will think of the bells for Christmas music â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which we do â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but we also do things that are jazz or swing or blues. We challenge ourselves by playing

music people wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t expect from hand bells.â&#x20AC;? Following the concert, guests will be invited to check out the hand bells, and to give them a ring if theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re so inclined. The church, which held its first holiday hand bell concert last year, plans to make the concerts an annual event as part of the churchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;commitment to building community,â&#x20AC;? Bradley said. The concert is free to attend; â&#x20AC;&#x153;free willâ&#x20AC;? donations will be accepted. The church is located at 13900 Biscayne Ave. Email Andrew Miller at andrew.miller@ecm-inc.com.

Thisweekend Holiday show features â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s funniest first graderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Junie B. Jonesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; runs Dec. 13-30 in Lakeville by Andrew Miller SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

It could be the â&#x20AC;&#x153;bestestâ&#x20AC;? time youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever had. Junie B. Jones is returning to the stage of the Lakeville Area Arts Center this month, imperfect grammar and all. Junie B. is the star of nearly 30 childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s books that have sold more than 55 million copies in North America. The New York Times has described the boisterous 6-year-old as a â&#x20AC;&#x153;dispenser of abundant opinions, Runyonesque wisecracks and dubious syntax.â&#x20AC;? This is the second year Lakeville-based childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s theater group The Playâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s The Thing has staged the holiday musical â&#x20AC;&#x153;Junie B. in Jingle Bells, Batman Smellsâ&#x20AC;? at the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s arts center. Last year, the show proved such a hit, and the demand for tickets was so great, that the arts center

While the show is geared to kids, Junie B. has a way of winning over adults as well, Railton said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Junie B. is described as â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s funniest first grader,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; and the show grabs the kids immediately because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s classroom humor, but it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t matter what age you are because the humor is sort of universal,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Junie B.â&#x20AC;? will be presented Dec. 13-30 at the arts center at 20965 Holyoke Ave. in Lakeville. Tickets are $13 and can be purchased at www. Cast members of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Junie B.

Farmington library update to include exterior renovations

Journey through life with â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Lettersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; OnStageâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest cast ever to explore the human experience through real, fictional correspondence by Tad Johnson SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Those who need their fill of Journey, the Bee Gees and Pink may top off their tanks during Rosemount High Schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s string of shows for â&#x20AC;&#x153;Letters.â&#x20AC;? The OnStage production, which includes music, singing and dancing, will be performed six times in the next two weeks featuring 100 high school singers, 40 dancers and a 50-member childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chorus. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There was just so much talent, we wanted to include them all,â&#x20AC;? said Steven Albaugh, one of Rosemountâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s three choir directors. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They have worked extremely hard. We have had to cancel some practices because of football games, so students could go to the

games. We also have football players who are in the cast.â&#x20AC;? Albaugh said the title is about as vague as it could be, but it also describes the structure of the show. Letters, some real and some fictionalized, punctuate the musical numbers which take the audience to summer camp, through love and love lost, to college and to military members serving overseas. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It shows how correspondence plays a role in our lives,â&#x20AC;? Albaugh said. The performance runs through all of the emotions in the human experience. Though the show is mostly a journey through happy times, it promises to have its poignant moments, too, including real letters from Rosemount military members. With the largest cast

ever for OnStage, the singers will offer tunes from Sam Cooke, Whitney Houston, Paul Simon and more. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It has the most popular and recognizable songs for a show that we have ever done,â&#x20AC;? Albaugh said. People may order tickets online at www.district196.org/rhs/theaterarts/tickets/index.cfm. The Friday, Dec. 6, show is already sold out. Additional performances will be at 7 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 7; Thursday, Dec. 12; Friday, Dec. 13, and Saturday, Dec. 14; and 2 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 8. Ticket prices are $9 for adult, $7 for students and senior citizens. Email Tad Johnson at tad.johnson@ecm-inc. com.

Library will move temporarily to City Hall soon by Andy Rogers SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

The Farmington Library will be receiving an update both inside and out starting in 2014. Dakota County plans to update its exterior and interior with two different projects that should be completed by July. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hopefully it wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t look like a grocery store,â&#x20AC;? Dakota County Commissioner Mike Slavik said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking for something to complement the (neighboring) City Hall building.â&#x20AC;? The interior renovation bidding process began about a month later than originally anticipated, but the reopening date shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be changed, according to Dakota County

Planner Joe Lexa. Bids for improving the interior and exterior should be approved by mid-December. Dakota County also plans to update the library in Inver Grove Heights. Originally, Farmington Library operations were going to move to a temporary location in late November to the second story of Farmington City Hall, but now it will likely move in December, and renovations will start in early January. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be happily doing business in City Hall for the meantime,â&#x20AC;? Farmington Library manager Barb Svoboda said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m hoping there will be a limited amount of disruption.â&#x20AC;? When the library makes its move, Svoboda expects it will take no longer than a week to reopen at City Hall. The library cleared its schedule for December

because Svoboda thought staff members would be moving. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s too bad we wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have our regular list of story times,â&#x20AC;? Svoboda said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll make up for it when we reopen.â&#x20AC;? To make room before the move, the library has been selling 10 books for $1. Books for sale, many of them donated, still include several bestsellers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe how many books are donated to the library,â&#x20AC;? Svoboda said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rather than storing them somewhere, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to give them a new life. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing pretty good at getting rid of the stash.â&#x20AC;? The books that wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sell by mid-December will be marked for sale at the Robert Trail Library in Rosemount. Email Andy Rogers at andy.rogers@ecm-inc.com.
