Nick DiMassis is the new manager of the Carver County Library. “Carver County Library Services has a great reputation around the state,” DiMassis said. “I am very excited to be joining the team at a time of great change. My promise is this: Carver County Library will remain relevant to the needs of residents in the short and long term.”

The DiMassis family spent part of Thanksgiving Day touring Carver County. Currently they live in Isanti, but were anxious to familiarize themselves with Carver County, where they plan to relocate. Just the day before, Nick DiMassis accepted Carver County’s offer to be the new Carver County Library Services manager. DiMassis steps into the position previously held by Melissa Brechon who retired at the end of the December. The position of library director has been renamed to manager of library services, to make it consistent with all other similar management positions in the county. DiMassis comes to Carver County after being assistant director for the state’s East Central Regional Library in Minnesota, where he managed 14 branches. He assumed his new job on Jan. 3. “We’re excited to have him come down here,” said Steve Taylor, administrative services division director for Carver County. “He’s been heavily involved with state library committees, projects and initiatives.”

He had “been relieved” of his job, his home and his girlfriend and was looking for an epic adventure to take his mind off all of it.

Six weeks later there are still plenty of questions left to be answered, but Carlson is sure of one thing. “I discovered I don’t want to sit in an office with the same six people for the rest of my life,” said Carlson, who is now living with his parents in Chaska.

Kindergarten to offer Spanish immersion BY CHUCK FRIEDBAUER friedchu@yahoo.com

Beginning in September, District 112 will offer a new, all-day dual language program at the Kindergarten Center called La Academia. “We’re very excited to get started and believe this is a real value for those in the community interested in intense language instruction,” said Cathy Gallagher, District 112 K-12 curriculum coordinator. The program will include instruction in both Spanish and English.

For this first year, enrollment will be limited to two sections of kindergarten students and two sections of first-grade students, for a total of 50 students at each grade level. “We intend to grow the program slowly to ensure quality at every level,” said Gallagher. The program will be based on the same academic standards as allEnglish kindergarten programs. At the kindergarten level, 90 percent of instruction will be in Spanish. Posting for licensed elementary teachers proficient in both Spanish

On his own, Carlson adopted a more leisurely pace than the 80-, 90-, 100-plus-mile days he and Earley had been tackling together. “Some days I went 12 miles,� he said. Carlson took the time to stop when something interesting caught his eye – like the offer to ride on a monster truck for $5 in rural North Carolina – or to fulfi ll a crazy dream – like riding down a road in Glacier National Park at 45 mph only to jump off a cliff into a glacierfi lled pond at the end. “You don’t get to do that thing every day,� said Carlson, his red beard parting to reveal a nostalgic smile. “I wanted to live in the moment,� he explained. “I didn’t understand it until I was on the bike – then I was soaking it in, every minute, every day.� To make it out to the West Coast and have enough time to explore before coming back to Minnesota for Thanksgiving, Carlson opted to fly from Atlanta to Denver. Those miles don’t factor into his impressive 6,600-plus mile total. “I don’t care about the miles,� he said. “Once you get used to the mental part, the miles don’t mean anything at all.�

Rinks on the blink High temps turn winter upside down

JOIN THE CHAT TELL US WHAT YOU DID DURING THE WARM WEATHER

www.chaskaherald.com

BY RICHARD CRAWFORD editor@chanvillager.com

Record high temperatures earlier this week have been a joy for some but a pain for iceskating enthusiasts and others who enjoy traditional outdoor winter recreation. In Chaska, Park Director Tom Redman said it was the fi rst time in 36 years that the city didn’t have rinks open this time of year. “This is not good for the outdoor enthusiast,” Redman said, “but the indoor ice at the Chaska Community Center has been doing a record business for open skate time.” The city of Chanhassen announced this week that outdoor hockey rinks won’t be flooded anymore this winter, although flooding is planned on outdoor pleasure rinks.

Unseasonably warm temperatures have not permitted the hockey rinks to be flooded with enough frequency to create even a minimal layer of ice, according to the Chanhassen Park and Recreation Department. Todd Hoffman, Chanhassen director of Parks and Recreation, said it’s the first time since at least 1982 that the hockey rinks haven’t been open during the winter. Flooding will start again on the pleasure skating rinks in Chanhassen as temperatures cool and all warming houses will re-open by Jan. 14 with normal scheduled hours. There’s another weather record potentially on the horizon, according to the National Weat her Ser vice O f f ice i n

The Carver County Board is planning to vote Jan. 24 on whether to implement a zebra mussel inspection program at Lake Minnewashta Regional Park for the upcoming boating season.

He said the enforcement is a state matter and it would be hard to justify why the county is spending resources directed at only one lake.

EDITORIAL

Fresh start needed for Republicans It hasn’t been the best of times for Republicans in Minnesota. The Minnesota Senate recently elected a new majority leader – David Senjem of Rochester – and a new leadership slate, including Deputy Majority Leader Julianne Ortman of Chanhassen. A clean slate was needed after the surprise resignation of former majority leader Amy Koch, who left the position after admitting to an “inappropriate relationship” with a Senate staffer. The transition also comes at a time when there are revelations about substantial debt having been amassed by the state party and state party leader Tony Sutton departing. At the county level, local Republicans replaced the county chairman last summer shortly after he was accused of sex crime.

These black marks are particularly troubling for GOP members, who have pushed a social agenda that includes a marriage amendment on next fall’s ballot and who pride themselves on fiscal accountability. Koch’s departure provides an awkward backdrop to the upcoming marriage amendment. As the next legislative session is set to begin, Republicans desperately need a fresh start and a sharper focus. Republicans should set an agenda heavily weighted toward fiscal issues. There is plenty to delve into on the economic side of things. We’re – hopefully – emerging from the worst economy of this generation. Republicans should focus on making sure we indeed keep the economy moving ahead and leave the social agenda for another day.

Affordable housing is part of our history An ongoing discussion of a true community is the need to provide a balanced housing stock, meeting the needs of all who live there. I’ve learned that it’s important to understand our history as we address this issue, and as we try and understand this housing need.

GUEST COMMENTARY

The Minnesota learning curve BY BYUNG HAK LEE

As fall sets in and a cold breeze cuts a deep swath of empty feeling through my soul, my mood goes frail. This sentiment repeats every fall season Byung Hak without fail since Lee my childhood. There must be a pathological term to explain this, which I do not know. My wife diagnosed that it was because I didn’t receive enough love and attention from my parents in my childhood, and her prescription was that I work hard to earn her love to compensate for the “lost love.” I must refute this, however, because all my siblings don’t seem to suffer from what I do. For my early years living in Minnesota, I kept complaining to my wife about the cold winters and thunderous, mosquito-ridden summers, suggesting that we get out of here soon. Then, why have I not yet moved to any of the Sunbelt states? This is a Minnesotan mystery. It is not uncommon to find native Minnesotans who never ventured out to other parts of the nation. I even sense a certain fatalism from such people – as if the very thought of moving out defies their “goddess of the Minnesotan destiny.” Ironically, the suicide rates in Twin Cities are lower than any of the major sunbathing cities. In my opinion, one single sunny day of Minnesota is a good reason enough to make people happy and smiley in the streets and workplaces – Minnesotans have cultivated the understanding of appreciation! My coworker, when in his late teens, used to be a crab fisherman in the Arctic Ocean. He once told me that Minnesotan boys were the favorite to their employers because of their high work ethic and tenacity in savagely cold seas. It’s no wonder, considering what they had endured here! Unexceptionally, every winter, my wife and I talk about our dream of moving to Arizona or California. We know we aren’t going anywhere. It nevertheless provides us a sense of consolation that, only if we decide, we CAN get out of Minnesota anytime for a “happier” life. We’ve been engrained as optimists! Yet, the true sustaining power that holds us here may be best

“One single sunny day will be good enough to make Minnesotans happy and smiley in the streets and workplaces – Minnesotans have cultivated the understanding of appreciation!” Byung Hak Lee summed up after we venture outside the Minnesota borders. Toward the end of our family vacations to the places like Hawaii and California, we eventually come to be homesick for our Minnesota, proclaiming, “It’s a nice place here for winter vacation, but not good enough to live.” Fifteen years ago when I was in Massachusetts looking for a job, I received a call from a recruiter working for my current company. I still remember her first remark on the phone, “People in Minnesota are nice.” To be honest, the niceness of people was my least care at the time. I had been desperately looking for a job for five months so that I was ready to accept any job – even one like cleaning the bottom of Minnesota lakes in February. However, it didn’t take long to realize that once in Minnesota I was blessed with good people surrounding me: neighbors, pals and coworkers – that my recruiter was vindicated. Furthermore, here is a little secret to spill. Minnesota is also home to about 12,000 Korean-Americans, who came from across the nation and Korea. I hear often that Koreans in Minnesota are nice, probably nicer than those in any other states. The security system of the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport doesn’t scrutinize the character of newcomers, nor is Minnesota the destination where only good Koreans choose to live. The fact is that they are assimilated to the culture and the nicety of the Minnesota natives. As I decided to explore Minnesota, I asked my coworkers about where to visit. They all recommended going to Duluth, saying that I’d see an ocean-like lake with real waves. However, I knew about the sea. I had been raised alongside the ocean and had just come from Boston where my frequent resting place had been Newport for fishing and beaching. I didn’t want to be faked by a pseudoocean. It took me 12 years to visit Duluth for our family trip. Our

family really enjoyed the place, and we still reminisce about the trip. It surely was an ocean, just with fresh waters. Another lesson learned: Don’t waste time to appreciate the life that Minnesota has to offer. I perceive that Minnesota represents the contemporary American voice and place: geographical center, sensible viewpoints, home of many Fortune 500 companies, profound art and science activities, best hospital system, University of Minnesota, etc. I also observed that Minnesotans are frequently interviewed for opinions on the current affairs by national media. The people have compassion, and our political perspectives know how to meet at balanced points when two principles conflict – true in my remote memories. That’s why we have always thrived under the harsh testing of the Mother Nature. Texans’ hospitality may come from a certain pride and sense of superiority. However, Minnesota nice is based on its genuine openness. We often feel, especially during winter, a sense of being trapped inland and bored. Visitors from the outside world will receive an openarmed welcome. Recently, my best friend in Korea called me. After we filled the gaps of years, I asked him, almost begged, “Please come visit me, you only need to buy airfare and all other expenses will be on the house.” He then asked, “What can I do if I am in Minnesota?” After moments of silence, I finally came up and told him, “Imagine this in your mind. 20 degree below temperature, you go out to the middle of a lake, take your coat off in a fishing hut on the top of ice, warming yourself with cans of beers, talking and laughing with your friends, in anticipation of catching the world’s best looking fish called Walleyes. There are no other places like this in the world.” Believe it or not, despite my hard sales pitch, he didn’t bite! Byung Hak Lee is a 15-year Chaska resident who also works locally as an engineer.

will be served when choosing candidates, and honestly dealing with the issues that affect all of us in Carver County. For example, in December, we had an “all-members” meeting. At this meeting, after regular BPOU business was addressed, we were fortunate enough to hear from two candidates vying for the U.S. Senate election against Amy Klobuchar – Anthony Hernandez and Dan “Doc” Severson. Both gave rousing speeches, and stayed on after for our holiday potluck. They pointed out that it will be a tough battle to unseat Sen. Klobuchar, but when the public looks at her record, polls show she begins to look vulnerable. While having chatting with Mr. Hernandez and his fiancée, Leona, a wonderful couple who will be wed in May, I learned quite a bit about this fine young man. He’s product of our great melting pot, second-generation Mexican and Irish, who grew up in St. Paul. If you can spare the time to chat with him, as I have, I think you would find him to be the kind of person who could represent Minnesota extremely well. While I didn’t get as much time with Mr. Severson, you’ll recall that he is a former fourterm state legislator who ran for Secretary of State in 2010. He’s also a great candidate who achieved his nickname “Doc” as an excellent pilot in the U.S. Navy. He’s served on behalf of all of us for 22 years in the Navy, and four terms for his district, and is another example of someone our party can be proud to have in its ranks. Another candidate who wasn’t at our December event, but has addressed us on previous occasions, is

Joe Arwood, whom I’ve met several times, including the Midwest GOP Leadership Conference in Bloomington in 2011, and also at one of the local Southwest Metro Tea Party meetings. Mr. Arwood moved to Minnesota in 2000, and is a member of the St. Bonifacius City Council. If I had more time and column space, I’d provide more information on these candidates. Our party caucus is on Feb. 7, and we will begin the process of choosing delegates to represent our neighborhoods we move toward the State Convention in May. I challenge all of our residents to get to know the candidates, and also to show up on Feb. 7 and get involved. I participated in the 2008 caucus, and eventually became a precinct chair, and finally a member of our local board. If you have ever thought about making a difference, and helping to shape and determine our future leaders, this is the chance. Carver County is Minnesota’s Conservative County, and I know many who would like to keep it that way, because from here, from our common goals, beliefs, and perspectives, we can build and maintain responsible government with accountability to those it serves. In the coming months, you’ll be hearing more from our BPOU, and more about local candidates, but we want to hear from you as well. You can submit your comments to our website at www.carvergop. com. John Brunette is chair of the communications committee for the Carver County GOP Basic Political Operating Group.

WEYGAND GUEST COMMENTARY

Now I am sure that I am going to hear that we should not raise taxes during a recession. Yes, this is true, but what those same people ignore is that it is even worse to cut government spending during a recession. It is interesting that I continually hear our political leaders talk about the need to create jobs, but yet we laid off tens of thousands of state employees in Minnesota. Yes there is often waste in government just as there is in private sector, but laying off government workers, most of who were needed, when we are trying to create jobs is plain stupidity. Finally let me respond to the comment “those of us in the higher brackets are paying higher income taxes and higher property taxes, both on percentage and amounts.” I will not argue about the amounts, but if we look at the total tax bill, which includes sales taxes, property taxes and business taxes, the percentage paid by the wealthy is much less than the poor, and less than those in the middle. This is not based hearsay or political ads, but from the Minnesota Department of Revenue website at http:// taxes.state.mn.us/legal_ policy/Documents/other_ supporting_content_2011_tax_ incidence_study_links.pdf. In 2008 the actual percentages paid by the bottom 10 percent of the population was 28.1 percent. The middle of the population pays roughly 10.6 percent. Finally the top 10 percent only pays 9.7 percent. The average for everyone is

10.4 percent. Regressive taxes are those that put a disproportionate share of the taxes on the low and middle-income taxpayers. A study by the think tank MN2020, which can be found at www.mn2020.org/assets/ uploads/article/tax_fairness. pdf, finds that Minnesota now has the 11th most regressive taxes in the country. This is the result of the No New Tax strategy that pushes more of the tax burden on property taxes that are more regressive. Much of the political discussion today is related to taxes and the size of government. Most people have no valid concept of what government is or does. Government has created the civilized society we have in the U.S. today. The roads, sewers, water schools, public safety and a lot more are the result of government. Oliver Wendell Holmes wrote, “Taxes are the price we pay for a civilized society.” If you want small government look to Third World countries that pay lower taxes than the U.S. As a nation we have lowest percent GDP going to taxes of any developed nation based on data from the Heritage Foundation. In 1998 the economy of the state and nation was strong. Both the federal and state governments had budget surpluses. In 1998 we elected a new governor and over the next four years our state income taxes were significantly lowered. In 2000 we elected a new president who also lowered taxes. We have been told that lower taxes will grow the economy, so is our economy better off today? The federal government is running big deficits, as is the state except for accounting gimmicks and borrowing from the schools. I do not want to suggest that raising taxes is the whole answer to our problems, but it at least has to be part of the solution. Jim Weygand is a former Carver mayor.

Communications Chair Carver County GOP

Minnesota as strong as weakest link Last month I wrote a response to Sen. Ortman’s editorial on Local Government Aid (LGA). Apparently from a letter to the editor (“Why should field be level?” Dec. 15) there was some disagreement and misunderstanding to my response. This month I would like to clarify some of my points. The letter writer wrote, “Where is [it] written that the field should be level?” Let me start by saying my original comment referred to communities in the state, and I do not know if it is written anywhere that there should be a level field for all communities. However, I think you will find that for states and nations, the ones that are economically balanced usually are fiscally stronger. In Minnesota, our economic strength is in the Twin Cities Metro Area, but the financially strongest communities are probably the wealthy suburbs. Do you think Minnesota will be stronger down the road if we allow Minneapolis and St. Paul to decline along with rural communities? Minnesota, like a chain, is as strong as its weakest link. If we let our rural communities and the metro weaken, then we will also feel it in our wealthy suburbs. The writer also wrote that “The state is basically broke,” and therefore we should not expect the state to pay LGA. True the state is basically broke, but in large part because of the deep tax cuts during the Ventura administration. This should have been corrected in later years, but the policy of “No New Taxes” at the state level held sway. Since then, the state has struggled with balancing its budget because the cuts reduced revenues and failed to produce an economic boom. The No New Taxes strategy did not really mean any new taxes, just any new state taxes, since local property taxes increased in many communities.

I’m writing today to introduce the readers to the Carver County Republicans BPOU. As the newly appointed communications chair, I felt that it would be good for Carver County citizens to get to know us better. The folks on this team are a wonderful bunch, who donate some of their spare time to help our party find and support good candidates for the many offices that you will choose from in the coming election. Some of you will no doubt wonder, what is a BPOU anyway? The acronym stands for Basic Political Operating Group. This is as grassroots as it gets. If you were to look at an organizational chart of the Republican Party, BPOUs are the group furthest from the top. But as anyone at the top knows, this is where it all begins. While there is hard work accomplished at all levels, the BPOU is generally the birthplace of the majority of our candidates. As anyone who follows politics knows, the Minnesota GOP has some challenges to overcome this year. Here in the trenches, at the county level, some of those challenges trickle down to our group, but for the most part, we still have the same tasks to accomplish, and I’m certain that we have a good team in place to get our work done. Our BPOU chair is Steve Nielsen, our vice chair is Christine Swee, our Treasurer is John Kunitz, and our secretary is Vince Baudette. We also have our executive board members from various precincts in the county and regular members from every precinct in the county. It is my intention to keep the general public informed as to whom some of these members are, what some of our goals are, and candidates that we’ve attracted to various office races, and events that are available for public involvement. I believe that the more the public knows about us, and what are trying to accomplish, the better both

Attention to detail Arb celebrates work of botanical illustrator BY MOLLEE FRANCISCO mfrancisco@swpub.com

Pops of color have begun to appear at the University of Minnesota Landscape Arboretum. Despite a warm winter, it is not signs of spring. It is the art of Anne Ophelia Dowden and it’s providing a sharp contrast to the browns and grays adorning the Arboretum grounds. “Eye candy for the winter months,” said curator and Arboretum volunteer Lucienne Taylor. The Arboretum will open its latest exhibit, “Wild Green Things: The Art of Anne Ophelia Dowden,” on Jan. 18. It runs through May 2 and encompasses the majority of the Arboretum’s buildings. The exhibit showcases the prolific work of the renowned botanical illustrator – work that quickly captured the heart of Taylor. “I’m blow n away by her work,” she said. “I’m awed by her ability, her eye, and her commitment to art and science.”

EMBRACING ART Born Anne Ophelia Todd in 1907, Dowden grew up in Boulder, Colo., the daughter of a pathologist and a nurse. She spent much of her childhood exploring the natural treasures hidden in the neighboring foothills. “She became immersed in the natural world,” said Taylor. Dowden collected and drew any living thing she could fi nd, especially insects and flowers. She would continue to do so for most of her life, until her death in 2007, just months shy of her 100th birthday. “She knew early on art was going to be her career,” explained Taylor. Dowden had her first piece of work published in her father’s pathology textbook when she was just 16. She went on to pursue a degree in art from the Carnegie Institute of Technology (now Carnegie Mellon) before moving to New York City in 1930. There, she found work teaching drawing at the Pratt Institute. She later founded the art department at Manhattanville College. Dowden married fellow artist Ray Dowden in 1934. She continued to build her collection of drawings throughout her 15 years of teaching. “She was drawing all the time to build up her research paintings,” said Taylor. “It was

Arboretum volunteer Lucienne Taylor curated the Anne Ophelia Dowden exhibit. She is standing in front of a selection from Dowden’s “The Clover and the Bee.” her source for anything she wanted.” In the early 1950s, Dowden began to get her botanical illustrations published in magazines and journals. She became known for the extraordinary accuracy and detail of her work. “She drew them absolutely the way they grew,” said Taylor. Dowden amassed more than 400 research paintings in her lifetime. As her work began to receive recognition, Dowden quit her teaching job to focus on her art full time. “It really was a change of career,” said Taylor. “I fi nd her courageous to be doing that.”

BOOKS Dowden was in her 50s when she published her first book “Look at a Flower.” It would be the fi rst of 19 books she would release commercially, most of which are geared toward students in the middle grades. Dowden was intimately involved in the entire book pub-

lishing process, from the art to the text to the layout. “She liked the process of choosing the words that would go with the illustrations,” said Taylor. “It would take her two to three years per book.” H e r work e n c o mp a s s e s a range of interesting book themes from plants of Christmas (as featured in the Dec. 22 Herald); to plants of the Bible; to plants of Shakespeare. All of her watercolors feature anatomically accurate plants and insects, with an eye for what would be visually appealing on the page. Dowden’s last book “Poisons in our Path: Plants that Harm and Heal” was published in 1994. Dowden was 87 years old. The Arboretum’s exhibit, which includes her books and scanned illustrations along with original notes and artwork, covers Dowden’s entire career with special attention paid to her “Wild Green Things” publication. Dowden spent three years seeking out the weeds native to New York City in order to

create the book. The University of Minnesota Libraries obtained some of Dowden’s original artwork from “Wild Green Things,” which will be on display in the Andersen Horticultural Library, just outside the rare books room. Visitors can delight in art that brings common weeds – like the dandelion – to life. “I want to just get my pick and scoop that out,” said Taylor, remarking on the realism of the dandelion. Dowden’s work exemplifies an art that is largely being re-

placed by digital technology in modern day. “It’s defi nitely art that is not as wildly distributed as before,” noted Taylor. But what she loves about Dowden’s work is how it speaks to the relationship between art, science and literature. Taylor hopes visitors to the Dowden exhibit will get a “renewed sense of the interaction between the plant world, insects and people.” “I hope people start seeing and observing,” she added. And come spring, people will be able to do just that, taking their inspiration from

HawkTALONS A salute to students of Chaska High School involved in arts, athletics and academia

Mister of ceremonies Students test nerves for a good cause BY CHUCK FRIEDBAUER friedchu@yahoo.com

G

etting up in front of a crowd can be a bit nerve-wracking for those not into the theater scene. “I’m a little nervous getting up in front of a fi lled auditorium, but I’ve done a few shows and its all for fun and a good cause, so it’s no big deal,” said Chaska High School senior Camilo Gallego. Eight other seniors joined Gallego in putting their talents on stage for a packed auditorium during the annual Mr. CHS event at Chaska High School last week. Each year, the school’s DECA organization puts on the Mr. CHS event to raise money for the Miracles of Mitch Foundation. Since its inception, the foundation has been providing support to families of children with cancer in honor of local youth Mitch Chepokas, who passed away in 2003. This year, senior Dan Drill-Mellum won, doing an impression of Severus Snape from the Harry Potter books. “It was pretty popular when I did it last year, but I added a twist to it this year to freshen it up,” he said. The other contestants gave it their best by singing songs, playing the guitar and piano, telling jokes and performing balancing acts. While many were reluctant to admit it, several acknowledged the nerves started to hit them as it came time to get on stage. “I’m generally not nervous around people, but I haven’t played my guitar in front of many people either,” said Patrick Egdorf. “So, I guess I’m a little nervous, but it’s a lot of fun and if you mess up, it’s no big deal.” Scott Gilmore said while he hadn’t performed in front of this many people, he always feels at home with his talents. “I like playing the piano and telling jokes,” he said. “And I enjoy making people laugh, so this will be a lot of fun.” Some of the contestants, like DrillMellum, had well-rehearsed skits. Others may have been, well, winging it. “Right after school today, my girlfriend played me this song that’s real cool,” said Christian Bentley. “I don’t quite have it memorized, but its fun to be up here with the guys supporting a good cause, so it’ll go fi ne.”

Getting to the root of the problem Here’s a bet I would have lost: betting that I would be putting the fi nishing touches on my new shade perennial garden on New Years Eve day! I tilled and planted at the base of giant bur oaks during much of August and September and then turned my attention elsewhere, save for weekly watering until the ground froze. I chose not to complete the shady landscape by spreading wood chips on walk paths, figuring that task could wait until next spring. In early December, a neighbor offered me wood chips, but a pond separated my garden from the woodchip pile. Then came New Year’s Eve day and a perfect combination of conditions – thawed woodchip pile, 6-inchdeep ice on the pond, and shirtsleeve temperatures. I forked multiple wheelbarrows full of chips and wheeled them across the ice, covering the formerly bare-earth paths. Who says global warming is a bad thing?! A couple of other stories grabbed my attention recently. U of M researchers compared two Autumn Blaze (acer x freemanii) maple trees planted on the same date 10 years earlier. Both were planted at the depth of the surface soil in the pot, which was way too deep for Tree No. 2. The result was girdling (circling) roots that choked future growth of Tree No. 2. After 10 years, the trunk diameter of Tree No. 2 was 4 inches, while the trunk diameter of Tree No. 1 was 8 inches. Tree No. 2 was 25 feet tall and Tree No. 1 was 35 feet tall. Leaves of Tree No. 2 colored and dropped early, and the tree looked anemic next to Tree No. 1. The true cost of this common

ternative to techniques suggested in the past, such as scoring the circling roots with a razor knife or butterflying the root ball with a shovel. These approaches haven’t panned out, according to the U of M researchers. A box cut is performed by cutting the root ball into the shape of a box using a pruning saw. Root balls treated using the box-cut method generally had good root systems after five years in the ground. Circling roots were drastically reduced but not entirely eliminated, according to the researchers. I’ve just hit the high points of these planting errors; if you’re faced with these situations, I recommend doing a little Internet research before spading your problem tree into the ground (e-mail me for photo link at cliffjohnson1@mac.com). One fi nal tree note, of interest to me because of trees on my property. A healthy bur oak drops all its leaves in the fall. Leaves that are infected with the fungal pathogen (Tubakia sp.) that causes Bur Oak Blight (BOB) remain attached to the tree into the winter. Leaves on one of my mature bur oaks remained attached to the tree this fall. Does it have BOB? BOB doesn’t kill bur oaks, but it weakens them, leaving them susceptible to secondary threats like twolined chestnut borer and Armillaria root rot. Coupled with our current drought, my 150-year-old bur oak could be in trouble. BOB has been observed in Carver County. Cliff Johnson is a Carver resident and a Master Gardener.

JOHNSON PUTTING DOWN ROOTS

planting error is lost time. If Tree No. 2 dies and needs to be replaced, it will be 11 or 12 years behind other trees. Even if it lives, it is essentially half the size of Tree No. 1 and other trees planted at the same time. Here’s the lesson: When planting a container-grown tree, make sure that the fi rst large root connecting to the stem (usually about one-fourth inch in diameter) is visible after you fi ll in the planting hole. This will ensure that as the tree gets older and roots and stems expand, there will be no compression of the stem. Another tree-planting dilemma is the discovery that a potted tree is root-bound with a snarl of encircling roots. When this tree is planted, chances are good that the roots circling near the top of the container will eventually press up against the stem of the tree and strangle it to death. So, what should you do? The best choice at that moment is to return the potted tree to the garden center and get a replacement. If that choice isn’t feasible, the U of M researchers offer another solution. It’s called the “box cut.” It’s an al-

Area man pleads guilty to child porn charges A 49-year-old Carver man recently pleaded guilty to producing images of child pornography. Randy Davies Anderson specifically pleaded guilty to one count of production of child pornography, according to a U.S. Attorney’s Office press release. Anderson, who was indicted on Nov. 8, 2011, entered his plea before United States District Court Judge Joan N. Ericksen. Anderson did not enter a plea agreement. Anderson admitted that in January of 2011, he induced and coerced a minor female child to engage in sexually explicit conduct for the purpose of producing visual depictions of such conduct. In addition, Anderson admitted storing those digital images on his computer and transmitting a copy of the images over the Internet. According to a Carver County cri mi na l complai nt, aut horities learned about Anderson in July 2011, while conducting a child pornography investigation involving another individual, the release stated. Agents found two pornographic images on that individual’s computer that were sent from Anderson. On Sept. 6, 2011, agents executed a search warrant at Anderson’s residence, where they seized computers and other related items. Those items were later found to contain images of child pornography. For his crime, Anderson faces a potential maximum penalty of 30 years in prison, with a mandatory minimum penalty of 15 years. Judge Ericksen will determine his sentence at a future hearing. Anderson remains in custody. This case is the result of an investigation by the Carver County Sheriff’s Office and the Minnesota Cyber

Crimes Task Force, which is sponsored by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the U.S. Secret Service. It is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney David P. Steinkamp. In fiscal year 2010, 2,235 defendants pleaded guilty to federal child pornography charges, 2,222 of whom were sentenced to prison. In fiscal year 2009, 2,083 defendants were sentenced to prison on child pornography charges. For more information about these efforts, visit the Department’s Project Safe Childhood website, at www.projectsafechildhood.gov.

Pedestrian struck by vehicle dies A pedestrian struck by a vehicle on Dec. 16 died on Jan. 5 as a result of injuries. At 6:17 p.m., Dec. 16, the Carver County Sheriff’s Office responded to an accident in Watertown. Carol Ann Wiggins, 68, was struck by a vehicle at the Territorial and Westminster Avenue intersection in Watertown. Wiggins was transported to Hennepin County Medical Center in critical condition. On Jan. 5, she died as a result of the injuries she sustained in the accident. The Carver County Attorney’s Office has reviewed the investigative reports and has determined that no criminal charges will be filed, according to a Sheriff’s Office press release. According to the Carver County Attorney’s Office, “tragically, the evidence we have demonstrates that Ms. Wiggin’s simply did not see the vehicle entering the intersection and that the driver simply did not see Ms. Wiggins entering the crosswalk,” the release stated.

Page turners: Readers chime in on book recommendations

L

ooking for a good book? We challenged newspaper readers to answer a question – “What’s the best book you read in 2011?” – and some of your responses are on this page. We received a range of recommendations, from a book on how to turn back one’s biological clock to a World War II tale of Leningrad museum artifacts. Perhaps the reader advice published here will motivate you to buy a book or two, hunker down during the winter months ahead, and either learn, explore or be entertained by turning one page after another. Our thanks once again to all the readers who shared their thoughtful book recommendations.

Two stories share contrasting experiences Here are a couple books I read in 2011: “The Madonnas of Leningrad,” by Debra Dean.. By way of saving the contents (madonnas) of the Hermitage museum during WWII, this novel informs the reader of t he i ntense hu n g e r a n d cold the peasants endured in Leningrad. It makes hunger and cold unforgettable. “Waiting for White Horses,” by Nathan Jorgenson, a Minnesota author. This novell is a sweet read. Every character I would like t o k now b etter and would l i ke t o h ave for my neighbor. The two dentists value their friends h ip, wh ic h has g rown d k hunting h ti in i through seasons off duck northern Minnesota. I have never been duck hunting, but this read certainly makes it enticing.

‘The Wife’s Tale’ by Lori Lansens The best book I read in 2011 was “The Wife’s Tale” by Lori Lansens: Mary Gooch’s husband quietly e leaves her on the eve of their 25th wedding anniversary, which catapults Mary onto a path of tremendous self-discovery and personal g rowth. The premise sounds sad and it is. However, it is exciting and wonderful to watch Mary’s metamorphosis as the story unfolds. I fell in love with Mary Gooch – her courage, her strength and her humanity. I hated to see the story end!

‘Nothing to Envy’ by Barbara Demick North Korea is a country I knew nothing about; the people, the politics, the culture. This book sheds a little light on this dark, hidden country by following the lives of a few people. It’s interesting to have this insight with the recent events occur-

ring there and the few images the government allows to be seen. While a shor t read, iit is engaging a and made me a appreciate the sma l l libertties I take for g granted.

‘ ‘Football Wife: Coming of Age with the NFL as w Mrs. Karl Kassulke’ by Jan Thatcher Adams, M.D. I read a lot of books, good, bad, a and in-between. “Football Wife: C Coming of Age w with the NFL a s M r s . K a rl K Kassulke,” by J Jan Thatcher A Adams, M.D., i a good book is p published in 2 2011. This is a m memoi r. A l l m memoir writing is self-serving. The requirement for memoir is telling the Truth. Emily Dickinson in poem 1129 says: Tell All the Truth but tell its slant Success in Circuit lies She ends her poem with these lines: The Truth must dazzle gradually Or every man be blind Jan Adams told her Truth. Some of her candor may be shocking and disturbing to some readers, but s conveys an understanding and she k kindness about this time of her life. R Reading this book will be an insightf learning experience. The family ful p photos included tell an inclusive s story. As a good memoirist should, D Adams puts enough in and leaves Dr. e enough out of her story. She allows u to read in as well as read out in us t this well-crafted memoir.

‘The Art of Racing in the Rain’ by Garth Stein I loved this b o o k ! Ve r y readable, it is an intriguing story told from the perspective of a wise and insightful dog who wants badly to be a hu ma n. He loves his famtbroken by what he ily and is heartbroken observes and cannot share.

‘Younger Next Year’ by Crowley and Lodge My husband and I recently read “Younger Next Year” by Chris Crowley and Henry S. Lodge. Crowley is a 70-plus retired at t o r n e y. H e shares ideas, attitude and inspiration about living long and st rong du ring “the last third” of our lives. i t l medicine di i Lodge is an internal d doctor who shares the science beh hind the theory that if we stay active ( (meaning aerobic exercise five to six d days per week and active involvem ment in family and community), our b body continues to grow rather than d decay, as we’ve been conditioned b believe. By following this program, the a authors suggest you can avoid 70 p percent of the decay and 50 percent of t illnesses and injuries associated the with getting older. Published in 2005, the book is humorous and empowering all at once. Good information about a healthful diet, too, all told in a practical, funny tone. It was a really excellent read for this time of life and the beginning of the New Year. “Younger Next Year” and “Younger Next Year for Women” are available at the Scott County Library as hardcover and audio book.

‘ Hunger Games’ ‘The bby Suzanne Collins The best books I read in 2011 were “ “The Hunger Games” series books b Suzanne Col-by l lins. I loved these books. T hey are fast-paced. They have act io n a n d r o mance. The characters were re a l ly good. They were page turners. They never got boring. I couldn’t put them down. I can’t wait for the movies!

Alex Wagner Age 14 Student at St. Michael’s School in Prior Lake

Suspenseful books are best I actually have two books that I loved in 2011: “ T he Hu nger Ga mes” series books. I loved these books because they had a lot of action and suspense. I also loved the book “I Am Number Four” by Pit t acus L Lore. It had a l lot of action a and suspense a rning pages and kept you turning pages.

‘ ‘Safe from the Sea’ bby Peter Geye I really loved Ann Patchett’s

Chaska Middle School East eighth-grader book choices read because 13 different people were blamed for a girl’s suicide and each of the teens do not know why or how they are involved – intriguing and keeps you reading.

I recommend the book, “We Will Always Have Summer,” by Jenny Han. It is a great romance book that will keep you fl ipping the pages! You never know what is going to happen next!

“Shoeless Joe and Me,” by Dan Gutman: This book is an easy read and it is funny. It is about a boy that can travel though time with baseball cards. This is a series that teen boys will defi nitely want to check out.

Carly Kriesel

Kirsten Haugen “13 Reasons Why,” by Jay Asher: I thought this book was very fun to

book to eighth-graders and highschoolers.

Jessie Ireland “Pretty Little Liars,” by Sara

Paige Hall Shepard: I like this book because

Preston Hasting I recommend: “Hunger Games” series, of course! (“Catching Fire” was my fav); “Harry Potter and the Goblet Of Fire”; “Mysterious Benedict Society” because these books are perfect for engaging teenagers.

“If I Stay,” by Gayle Forman: I like this book because it is so suspenseful that you never want to put it down. The girl protagonist (she is in a coma) has to make a choice of whether she wants to go back to earth and fi nish living her life or go and join her family in the afterlife. It is also very romantic. I would recommend this

Most of the books on my list were published prior to this year. However I did read them this year. “The Book Thief,” by Markus Zusak. An interesting look at German life during World War II from the perspective of the main character, “Death.” “Reading The OED: One Man, One Year, 21730 Pages,” by Ammon Shea. The author read the OED in one year and reveals to the read very unique words that are not commonly read. Fun book to read. “The Cigar Maker,” by Mark McGinty: I enjoyed reading about Cuba and Cuban migration into Tampa, Fla. “Alas Babylon,” by Pat Frank. Published in 1959. An amazing post-apocalyptic novel written during the Cold War era. “Cutting for Stone,” by Abraham Verghese: A complex story of two brothers who are raised in an orphanage in Ethiopia. “Packing for Mars: The Curious Science of Life in the Void,”

other book that rates on the top of my 2011 list is by a Minnesota author, Peter Geye. The title is “Safe from the Sea.” It is set on a northern lake not far from Superior where a college professor visits his dyi ng fat her and hears the true story of the father’s experience on an ore boat that goes down in a gale on Superior. The son comes to understand h his father’s life and in the process c come to terms with his own life.

‘ ‘Billy Oliver Holding on to Memories’ H bby Charles Peters This is the type of book that once y start reading it, you don’t want you t put it down to until you get to the last page. A book that is w e l l w r it t e n and easy to read, readers find themselves living in the “moment” wit h you ng Bi l ly. W hen Billy laughs, r readers fi nd themselves laughing o loud, when Billy cries, readers out fi nd it is hard to keep a dry eye.

The following book reviews are from Chaska Middle School East eighth-graders, submitted by language arts teacher Leslie Geissler, and media specialist Venisha Bahr.

Good reading noted

I watch the show and it’s very dramatic. It also has a lot of suspense. Teen girls who like series books and like chick lit will want to read these books.

Morgan Ingram “The Last Song,” by Nicholas Sparks: This would be a great book to read if you like summer romances with some tragedies. It may be a little sad at times but that’s what makes the book interesting. It also shows how a rebellious teenager fi nds herself again and becomes really close with her dying dad over the summer. Hope you read it!

Michaela Spielberger

Kent Nerburn. Meticulously researched a nd beautifully written, it is the story of a brave and c omp a s sion ate man who leads what is left of his peot i d across ple over the mountains and the prairies while pursued by the U.S. Army and all the resources the government can summon. Nerburn clarifies the myths and misconceptions surrounding this great Native American leader whose tribe is deprived of the homeland they have possessed for centuries. Shortly before discovering this book last winter, I was returning from the West Coast and found myself on a deserted mountain road at night with an empty tank of gas. Miraculously there was a resort still open with a gas pump. The owner said this happens all the time. Later in reading the book I was surprised to learn that I had followed the same route as Joseph and his tribe in their flight. I prefer to think it was his spirit that looked out for me and that he still guides lonely travelers in need of help on their way home.

‘L Walk to Freedom’ ‘Long AAutobiography of Nelson Mandela N The best and most interesting b book I read during 2011 is “Long

by Mary Roach. This was a funny book about space exploration, astronaut training. “Still Standing: The Story of SSG John Kriesel,” by Jim Kosmo. John Kriesel was a member of the Minnesota National Guard and was stationed in Iraq. “Winterdance: The Fine Madness of Running the Iditarod,” by Gary Paulsen. This is about the author’s decision to run the Iditarod. Honestly, this is not a topic that I would normally select to read but this in the top-five favorite books that I’ve read.

Jody Brennan Shakopee Walk to Freedom,” the autobiography of Nel s on M a n dela. It covers his entire life, his youth, his rise into notoriety as a leader among the ANC (African National Coni d three h gress), his persecution and decades in prison and his eventual election as the president of South Africa. This book defines what a true leader is – I wish more of our elected leaders would demonstrate similar leadership.

‘The Clockwork Angel’ by Cassandra Clare The Chaska High School Hawk’s Nest Book Club just fi nished reading “The Clock-wo rk A n g e l” by Cassandra Clare with rave reviews. T hi s b o ok i s the prequel to Clare’s popular “Mortal Instruments” series, and it is written in the steampunk (think Sherlock Holmes/Victorian era with supernatural and sci-fi elements) genre. Tessa Gray, 16, travels from America to London to join her brother, who has fallen under the influence of the supernatural underworld of London and plans to turn her over to the Dark Sisters who kidnap her in order to develop her previously unrealized ability to change shape into another person. Only the half-angel Shadowhunters can save her and protect her from those in the Underworld who w wish to exploit her powers. The paran normal romantic triangle keeps t the story moving along quickly, b some of the more predictable but e elements of the plot created a lively d discussion among the avid readers o the book club! of Want to see other great titles t teens across the country are readi ing?

‘For Love of Lakes’ by Darby Nelson I read the book “For Love of Lakes” by Darby Nelson, a professor at A noka-Ramsey Community College, an aquatic ecologist and lakeprotection activist. The book engagingly challenges us to consider both our relationship with lakes and how our choices affect their future. It’s about lakes going way back to early humans, to Henry David Thoreau’s experience on Walden Pond, Concord, Mass. in 1845, and present times. He talks about the current state of our lakes and what we can do to preserve and improve them.

iPad that the county has issued to him. The iPad takes the place of a conventional laptop computer. It’s what running a library system is all about these days. DiMassis is taking it in stride. “We always hear the question, ‘W ho needs books? ’” DiMassis said. “We’ve gone through that discussion before. Remember when everyone was talking about the paperless office? BusinessWeek wrote a cover story in 1975, that within five years we’d be a paper-less society. But instead, paper output doubled. As technology increased, it encouraged us to produce more of it [paper]. “People always talk about the death of the library,” DiMassis said. “I’m not terribly worried about it. There is an idea that print and electronic media is in some sort of a battle when in fact print and electronic media

www.chaskaherald.com | Chaska Herald are just containers for delivering content. “If patrons want their information on paper, we have it. If they want it electronically, we’ll deliver. It’s the content that’s important. And I also like to say that a library is more than just a warehouse for books. It’s much more than that. “If we look at it [the public library] through the lens of it being a community gathering place of opportunities,” DeMassis said, “it will continue to be relevant.” As assistant director of the East Central Regional Library, DeMassis initiated “Your Library,” an overview of the library system and its important role in a community to civic groups. He spoke to Lions Clubs through the East Central Regional Library area. He feels that the mission of Lions Clubs are especially aligned with that of libraries — in addition to the Lions’ valuable work in promoting vision and providing glasses for those who need

them for sight and for reading, the Lions also promote literacy. DiMassis plans to continue similar outreach in Carver County. DiMassis is also enthusiastic in working with the Library Foundation of Carver County. “I’m looking forward to reaching out to the community and working on raising the visibility of the library foundation [Library Foundation of Carver County],” DiMassis said.

BOOK COLLECTOR Unlike many who enter the library profession, Di Massis wasn’t a big-time library user. He studied history for his underg raduate deg ree, and considered teaching, or going on to graduate school. As he was considering next steps, his wife suggested library science. That’s what her sister was doing, and besides, they were already surrounded by books anyway. Boxes and boxes. Stacks and stacks. DiMassis admits he’s not so much a reader as he is a collector.

There are no construction costs because it will be housed in an existing building. Class sizes and the number of teachers and paraprofessionals are no different than a standard kindergarten class.

“I was always interested in books, collecting and buying them even as a kid,” DiMassis said. “I’d go to estate sales for the books. I’d drive up to my friends’ houses and open up the hatchback of my car. ‘Look what I found!’ No one ever was as excited as I was. “I got my f i rst job as a shelver,” he said, “to make sure the environment fit my skills. And no, I didn’t find shelving boring. Except when I was in the children’s section. You have to be at an elite level because the kids are pulling books as fast as you’re shelving them. It’s kind of a Sisyphean experience. But you don’t get annoyed, it’s the opposite. You see that the kids are so excited about the books. I loved seeing the reaction of kids coming into the library.

BACK TO HIS BOOKS “I collect early American history,” DiMassis said. “I enjoyed reading them, and then collecting them. When we go on trips, it’s guaranteed we’ll be stopping in at least three

the registrations to come from students who would have attended standard kindergarten or first grade, so the overall teacher headcount would be no different than if there was no La Academia. “There is some additional investment for supplies because they need to be in Spanish,” said Gallagher.

ELEMENTARY REDESIGN La Academia’s creation is one part of the district’s INSPIRE program, an elementary education redesign similar to that it did at the secondary level. “One impor tant facet to come out of all our research and survey work with the INSPIRE program is students need to be prepared to work globally and be prepared for diversity, in terms of cultures and languages,” said Gallagher. District staff worked with the Center for Advanced Research on Language Acquisition (CARLA) Institute at the University of Minnesota to determine best practices in the area of Spanish language instruction. As their research continued, the district began to focus on a dual language immersion program, said Gallagher. “It’s a real win-win for us,”

she said. “We have number of students who come to us with Spanish as their fi rst language and the recent Decision Resources survey indicated we have a significant interest in an immersion program.” In that survey, 61 percent of parents asked stated they would like to see Spanish taught in the elementary schools. Their research with the CARLA Institute also focused on building cultural competence through the arts, specialists, and cross-curricular connections. “Building familiarity with various cultures fits with several other pieces of our INSPIRE work, such as STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) education and technolog y use,” said Ga llagher.

VISION While this first year will be for kindergarten and first grade only, the district is committed to growing La Academia through fi fth grade. And while kindergarten instruction will be in about 90 percent Spanish, that percentage will shift through the grades until both languages are taught half of the day. Gallagher said the classes will likely be held at the Kindergarten Center up to three

years. “We’ve laid out our plan for three years there, after which, it will probably move to a new home,” she said. “But because we have committed to the program through fi fthgrade, we are asking parents to embrace the program, not the location.” Ga l l ag her a l so said t he district is looking at further options for language instruction. “We are looking at other creative options, such as classes both within and outside the school day, multiple languages and including cultural activities into the elementary engineering program,” she said. District 112 offers instruction i n severa l l a ng uages throughout its schools. There are Spanish, Chinese, French, German and American Sign Language courses at the high school level. Middle school offerings include Spanish and Chi nese, wit h one section of French at Chaska Middle School East. C om mu n it y E duc at ion classes exist for Spanish at the elementary level and a partnership with the Minnesota International Chinese School provides Chinese classes on Saturdays at Chanhassen High School.

Moving his books is one aspect of moving to Carver County.

A fine line between hockey and life F

or the most part, no one on the ice knew Benilde-St. Margaret sophomore Jack Jablonski. Players on the Chaska and Chanhassen hockey teams may have been Facebook friends with him, or known guys on the Red Knights team that played with him. Still, less than a week after Jablonski was severely injured in a head- on col lision with the boards during a junior varsity game Dec. 31, the District 112 teams got together to honor the brave young man who has been told he will never play hockey or even walk again. Before Thursday’s game, the two teams made a circle around center ice and held a moment of prayer. On each bench, a No. 13 jersey hung to honor Jablonski. In the crowds, students and fans wore white a nd even one Cha n hassen student had #JABS written on his T-shirt. And while the game was onesided with Chanhassen coming out on top 8-0, the fi nal difference didn’t seem to matter. For two-plus hours, the Storm and Hawks were able to enjoy what they love the most – the game of hockey. “All of the kids read the paper and the Internet and so do the coaches and I know a lot of the people – the coaches of the Benilde and Wayzata sides. It’s tragic and I think the kids realize that and see that. We talked about hockey and life having a fi ne line between them in how competitive do you get before it turns into you’re out of control,” Chaska Head Coach Mike Johnson said. The big star of the game was Chanhassen senior Connor Kelly, who scored three goals with the word #JABS etched on the blade of his stick. “I had no goals two games ago and then last game I had #JABS on my stick and I got a goal in that game and three more tonight so maybe he’s watching over us,” Kelly said. The game though was a lot more than a hat trick to Kelly and the other players on the ice. It was a way to honor a brother.

KRAUSHAR THIS AND THAT

“We didn’t know him, but the hockey community is really tight. When one kid goes down, we want to show him the kind of support we can. That’s what the stick was all about. It was to honor a kid that won’t be able to walk or skate and play the game he loved. We’re just trying to do anything to show him the support he needs. Twitter is a big thing right now and I thought writing #JABS on the stick would help him a bit,” Kelly said. “It was a win for Jablonski. We wanted to honor him. Coach Wilson said before the game to not (celebrate) as individuals, but (celebrate) as a team. Hockey is a kind of brotherhood sport. I have a few connections with guys that play with Benilde and some of his close friends. When that happens to someone it’s like it happened to someone in your family because we are all so close in hockey,” Chanhassen senior Eric Bigaouette said. PHOTO BY ERIC KRAUSHAR

A MOMENT TO TEACH Jablonski’s injury, which occurred during a junior varsity game between Benilde-St. Margaret and Wayzata Dec. 31, left the sophomore paralyzed in almost his entire body below his neck. Neurosurgeon Dr. Walter Galicich said in a news conference Jan. 5 that he does not expect Jablonski to regain any movement back in his legs or left arm. Last weekend, though, Jablonski did move both arms – something that was not expected with his prognosis. The injury provided a teaching moment for both Johnson and Wilson.

Connor Kelly didn’t know Benilde-St. Margaret sophomore Jack Jablonski, but that didn’t stop the Chanhassen senior from honoring him during the Jan. 5 tilt with Chaska. Kelly wrote #JABS on the blade of his stick for the hockey player who was paralyzed during a game Dec. 31. “We talked about if you see someone’s back, don’t hit him. There’s a reason for checking – it’s to separate someone from the puck, not to try to hurt him,” Johnson said. “We met with the JV team and coaches and then with my team as well and we just said clearly the message is you don’t want to be on either end of a play like that. I think the sport has gotten sloppy. There were three or four hits (Thursday) that I thought should have been called. The NHL game has got-

ten sloppy, too,” Wilson said. “I think people get careless because it doesn’t happen very often that people get hurt like this, but when it does it’s traumatic. I feel bad for his family and I feel for the Wayzata kids because they’ll never been the same, too.”

#JABS The outpour of support for Jablonski has been tremendous. As of late last week, his Facebook account had more than 43,000 likes. His Caring-

Bridge site has had more than 200,000 views. On Twitter, more than 6,700 people were following Pray_For_Jabs. “Playing for #jabs tonight along with the rest of my team. Never taking a shift off because I know Jack would love to be in our spot playing,” said Minnetonka junior Vinni Lettieri before the Jan. 3 win over Eagan 4-2. The Shakopee girls hockey team even posted a picture on Twitter with the team wearing all white with fi ngers that read

one and three for his hockey jersey. As far away as Missouri, a class got together dressed in all white to support a young man more than a thousand miles away. A fund was set up at Wells Fargo to support Jack and his family. To make a donation, visit any Wells Fargo location and make a donation to the Jack Jablonski Fund. Donations can also be mailed to Jack Jablonski Fund, P.O. Box 16387, St. Louis Park, MN 55416-2618.

A one-sided District 112 rivalry

Undermanned Hawks hit the hill in Missota opener

BY ERIC KRAUSHAR scores@swpub.com

Chanhassen and Chaska are in year No. 2 of the boys hockey split, and even though the rivalry doesn’t have much history – with three games in the books now – it was clear Jan. 5 that the emotions are notched up a step when the Storm and Hawks meet. In front of a standing-room only crowd, Chanhassen scored early and often, forcing running time in an 8-0 blanking of Chaska on the Hawks’ home ice. Connor Kelly scored three goals as 11 Storm players recorded at least one point in the victory. “I actually thought our effort tonight was a lot better than it was at Red Wing (Jan. 3). At Red Wing, we didn’t show up, we didn’t play well in all three zones. Tonight we competed. Chanhassen is a good double-A team. I thought we competed for a bit, but we just wore down,” Chaska Head Coach Mike Johnson said. The blowout was a stark contrast to a pair of tight games last season in which Chaska won the first meeting 5-2 in Victoria before the Storm evened the season series with a 4-3 win at the Chaska Community Center. “Two great games last year. (Jack) Storo took it to us almost single-handily in one of his first games back in the first meeting. And then the game here last year with all of the emotion. Today, they just ran out of gas,” said Chanhassen Coach Chris Wilson on Chaska. “The fi rst period they battled and fi nished off checks. Brady

Chaska goaltender Blake Jackson sprawls out to corral a loose puck before a Chanhassen player can get a chance to score in an 8-0 Hawks’ loss Jan. 5. Jackson made 25 saves in relief of Thomas Hanson. Rohrs, one of their captains, he was a warrior out there.” Wilson coached many of the current Hawks on youth teams, including Rohrs. “He scored a big goal on this same ice as a peewee to give a chance to go to regions. He’s just a great kid. So many of their players are,” Wilson said. Chanhassen showed its dominance early, netting three goals in the first 11 minutes of the game. Nate Traina corralled a loose puck in front of the net and beat Chaska eighthgrade goaltender Thomas Hanson at the 3:52 mark. Logan Wilkinson scored unassisted six minutes later, while Nathan Holasek scored on a shot from the point at 10:58 for the 3-0 lead.

Hanson stopped three shots before being lifted for sophomore Blake Jackson, who held the Storm off the scoresheet for more than 12 minutes. Chanhassen did record four goals in the second stanza as Kelly notched a hat trick in a span of nine minutes, including one on the power play on a sniped shot from the left circle. Also scoring in the period was Tanner Walsh on a tipped shot off a blast from defenseman Michael Gmiterko. “What we talked about between the second and third periods was the kids have an option to give up or keep on playing. That’s what I’m really trying to teach is never to give up. It was a really great teachable moment. I told them we can

pack it in like we did against Red Wing Tuesday or we can go out and play with class and play hard in the third period. I thought we did that. Maybe not with the same intensity as the fi rst period, but I didn’t see any giving up,” Johnson said. Jake Anderson fi nished off the scoring for Chanhassen in the third period with a goal. Jackson made 25 saves in relief for Chaska. “We have really good kids. They’re respectful and confident and they work hard. We’re getting better. This week wasn’t our best, but I like where we’re going to get to. It just takes time,” Johnson said. “What we’re trying to build is some chemistry and have every guy believe in the same thing. We all need to be on the same page.” Sch mit z-M a ki A ren a i n Farmington can be a tough place to play at as Chaska found out Tuesday in a 4-0 loss to the Tigers. Since a 3-0 win at Faribault over the Christmas Break, the Hawks have been outscored 19-1 the past three games – all against Missota Conference opponents. Farmington scored twice in the opening period and added solo goals in each of the fi nal two stanzas. Chaska hasn’t scored a goal in seven-plus periods. Andrew Peterson, who had two goals, netted a short-handed attempt more than five minutes into the contest. Kevin Olund and Grant Hauswirth also scored for the Tigers. Chaska (2-11) was outshot 35-23 for the game. The Hawks are 0-4 in the Missota Conference.

Temperatures reached 60 degrees in some parts of the state last week, but that didn’t stop the Chaska alpine ski teams from hitting the hill for competition for the fi rst time this season. The season opener in December was post poned to later this month. Thanks to snowmaking machines, the race went on at Welch Village near Red Wing. “It was our first race and our first-ever race in the Missota Conference,” said Chaska Head Coach Josh Kleve. “Chaska and Chanhassen split at sections, but we raced as a team in meets before sections. We grew a lot from last season and the decision was made to split for the season. That allows for the Missota to have four teams and have a conference.” Besides Chaska and Chanhassen, Northfield and the Academy of Holy Angels also field teams in the conference. The Hawks, which have far fewer competitors than Chanhassen, were fourth in both the boys and girls standings in the season opener Jan. 3. The boys scored 430 points with Chanhassen winning the event with 562. The girls, with

only one racer, had 90 points with a strong Northfield team with 574 points. “Chaska is at a bit of a slight disadvantage because they don’t have as many kids, but it gives a few of the kids an opportunity to become all-conference where they probably wouldn’t have been with the teams together,” Kleve said. Hawks senior Lauren Johnson had runs of 39.44 and 37.76 for a total time of 1:17.20 for 11th place. “Lauren has been skiing for us for a few years. She looks at it as she wants to get better, but also have some fun,” Kleve said. On the boys side, junior Adam Hoxie had a third-place run of 53.4 seconds on the slalom course. His times were 25.92 and 27.48. “Adam had some great skiing. He’s involved in so many things that I’m not sure how he does it,” the Hawks’ coach said. “He’s just a great leader for our young guys. He’s gaining speed and that is really helping him.” Geoff Karl was 14th for Chaska with a total time of 1:06.79. The Missota Conference has three remaining dates left with runs at Mount Kato (Jan. 17), Afton Alps (Jan. 24) and back at Welch Village (Jan. 31).

Local free-throw contest All boys and girls ages 10-14 are invited to participate in the local level of competition for the 2012 Knights of Columbus Free-Throw Championship. The local competition will be held at Guardian Angels School in downtown Chaska at 11:30 a.m. on Saturday, Jan. 21.

Chaska had f ive days of practice to prepare for Blake School, which routed Providence Academy 65-38 in front of the Hawks coaching staff four days earlier. Well, the game plan worked out perfectly Saturday in Hopkins. The Hawks outscored the Bears 39-20 in the second half en route to a 62-48 win over Class 3A sixth-ranked Blake, which was unbeaten at 8-0. Eric West and Kolby Seiffert have been Chaska’s top two scorers this season, but it was the added contributions of Matthew Knowles, freshman Jacob Hansen and Ryan Spencer that sparked the rally. Chaska trailed 28-23 at halftime. Knowles entered the game with 16 total points, but scored a team-high 11 in the win. Hansen also added a career-high 10 points, while Spencer matched that total as well. West and Seiffert chipped in nine points apiece for Chaska. Isaac Tewes also had seven points. Blake was led by John Veil with 18 points. L e a d i n g 2 0 -1 6 m i d w a y through the fi rst half, Chaska used a 12-3 run to pull away from Hutchinson for an eightpoint halftime lead and eventually a 67-52 victory Tuesday. West’s three-pointer at 23-16 started the run, which included 10 points from the sophomore forward. West hit a baseline jumper before Spencer’s driving layup made it 27-19. A West drive down the lane for two points and a threepointer made it 32-19. West, who had 15 points in the fi rst half, fi nished with a game-high 22 points. Justin Arnold scored eight of his 12 points in the second half for Chaska, which is now 6-6 on the season. Spencer and Tewes each added eight points, while Matthew Wittus had five. Nicholas Hauer led Hutchinson (2-8) with 14 points.

Chaska gained a 29-11 advantage at halftime and held on for the team’s second victory in a row.

Sundby and Parsons were in double fi gures for the Hawks with 15 and 12 points, respectively. Chaska also got solid games from Ellie Thompson (eight), Page Stanberry (seven), Sierra Leggett (six) and Ellie Knowles (five). Northfield (8-4) was led by Allyson Harris’ 17 points.

HOLY FAMILY ROUNDUP

First-period edge enough for a win Sam Stenson and Will Garin scored 13 seconds apart in the opening two minutes as Holy Family Catholic went on to beat St. Cloud Cathedral 4-1 in Victoria Jan. 3. The Fire, which have won three straight games, outshot the Crusaders 51-21 for the game. Stenson scored just 88 seconds into the contest off assists from Shane Gersich and John Peterson. Just 13 seconds later, it was Garin, an eighth-grader, unassisted for the 2-0 lead. Gersich added his teamleading 18th goal with 4:01 left in the fi rst period for the 3-0 advantage. After a scoreless second period, in which HFC goaltender Nick Schreiter turned away a number of quality Cathedral scoring chances, Danny Johnston did get a shot past the Fire sophomore with less than 10 minutes to play in regulation. Defenseman Dylan Wolff scored with 48 seconds remaining for the 4-1 difference. Peterson fi nished with two assists and now has 24 on the season. Schreiter turned away 20 shots for his sixth victory of the season for HFC (8-3).

HEART SCREENING

Early detection is first step to prevention BY ERIC KRAUSHAR scores@swpub.com

Sam Herrold was all set to play alongside her older sister as an eighth grader on the Parkston girls varsity basketball team in South Dakota. Standing six feet, four inches, at the age of 13, Herrold figured to have a successful fi rst season on the court. Her start to the season had to be put on hold, though, after it was discovered she had hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, a leading cause of sudden cardiac death in young athletes.

Herrold had no symptoms. She had no fainting spells. If not for a heart screening, the disease may have triggered at any moment. Parkston Girls Basketball Head Coach Rob Van Laecken encouraged students to be checked after doctors discovered a hole in a Beresford teen’s hear t du ring a screening. Herrold’s parents listened and today she is back on the court after doctors put in a defibrillator near her heart. Herrold’s case is a prime example of prevention. Unfortunately, more than 3,000 young

people between the ages of 15 and 34 die annually of sudden cardiac death. SCD can occur during strenuous physical activity for both athletes and non-athletes. Screening America has set out to prevent SCD from happening. “That 3,000 number is probably the low end of the estimate because not all cases are reported. There’s no other way to put it – we’re trying to prevent these deaths from happening,” said Doug Adams, Director of the Health Screening program based out of Sioux Falls. S.D.

WRESTLING

Adams, a former teach and coach for 28 years, is bringing a mobile unit to Chaska and Ch a n h a s sen h i g h scho ol s Jan. 19. Screening America techs go over the pre-fi lled out family health history forms, take the student’s blood pressure, run an electrocardiogram and perform a heart u lt rasou nd. T he test s a re then read by a certified cardiologist who in turn replies to each family. Screeni ng A meric a has been in more than 65 schools and screened more than 1,000 students such as Herrold.

“As a former teacher and coach and even more a father and a grandfather, I’m really interested in preventing something before it happens. We’re in the business of saving lives,” Adams said. The screenings will take place in the morning at Chaska High School and the afternoon at Chanhassen High School on Jan. 19. A consent form must be fi lled out by a parent or guardian prior to the screening. The cost is $79. For more information, go online to www.screening-america.com or call 605-520-6560.

Moving Local community centers provide options for walkers, joggers who want to exercise inside

indoors

BY RICHARD CRAWFORD editor@chanvillager.com

M

innesotans are mostly a hardy bunch. They like to get outside to walk and run. That’s not a Paul Bunyan-esque myth we’re making up. According to surveys by American Sports Data Inc., Minnesota has more runners per capita than all but four states. Hardcore runners like their exercise outside pretty much yearround, and many cities help by plowing trails to keep them open through the heart of winter. But what happens to the casual, not-so-hardy exercise buffs when the weather gets really hot or really cold? Where do those not interested in a full-fledged fitness club membership go when they aren’t willing to put up with ice-covered paths or soaring heat indexes? One option that’s easy on the pocketbook is the local community center. There are several in the southwest suburbs that have walking/running tracks open for public use free of charge. “Our track is utilized a lot when it’s cold or hot out,” said Chaska Park Director Tom Redman. The three-lane track has designated walking and running lanes and good window views for those who simply want to see what’s going on outside. Redman said the Chaska track, which overlooks gym floors and a workout area, attracts regular walkers and strollers, as well as casual joggers. About a dozen walkers took advantage of the indoor track even on a relatively mild early-January afternoon. A lot of socializing happens among the walkers, too, which gives facility newcomers a chance to see all that the community center has to offer, Redman said. Access to the track is also free at the Victoria Recreation Center, Shakopee Community Center and Prior Lake and Eden Prairie high schools, as well as other community facilities. A track at the Pagel Ice Arena at Minnetonka High School is also available to the public, said Manager Greg Clough. There, however, you aren’t necessarily escaping the cold. The track temperature is near freezing, he said. Typically, the community tracks get busier when winter hits, though this year the warm December and January weather may be keeping more people outside. “As soon as it gets cold and the sidewalks get slippery, then it fills up,” said Bobbi Birkholz of Prior Lake-Savage Community Education. The track at Prior Lake High School is exclusively for walkers; Mondays and Wednesdays are designated family walks for parents who want to exercise with their children or push a stroller. So for the casual jogger or walker resolving to make 2012 a year of better fitness, local community facilities may be a good option to get on the path to success. Keep in mind, however, that in most cases the tracks are the only free amenity at community centers. Entrance to other parts of the facilities, such as locker rooms, requires daily or membership fees.

A book with a poem about books We own most of Minnesota Poet Laureate Sutphen’s books at the library. I recently heard her speak at the Thursday morning discussion up at The Lodge at the Chaska Community Center. It was a fascinating hour.

It is a natural wonder of late afternoon. I try to imagine Dante, William Faulkner, and Emily Dickinson traveling down a double lane highway together, country western on the radio. Even when it arrives, I have to wait. The librarian is busy, getting out the inky pad and the lined cards. I pace back and forth in the line, hungry for the fresh bread of the page, Because I need something that will tell me what I am; I want to catch a book, clear as a one-way ticket, to Paris, to London, to anywhere.
