HERALD

A place to heal Hazelden to become one of many local addiction treatment options BY MOLLEE FRANCISCO mfrancisco@swpub.com

JOIN THE CHAT

Twenty-two. Each week in Chaska, there are 22 opportunities to attend a 12-step meeting and confront addiction head on. The meetings in Chaska are offered six days a week at recovery centers, churches and even in the basement of the American Legion. By comparison, Shakopee has just six such meetings. “Chaska’s clearly got something special,” said Ben Palmby, director of operations at Five Stars Recovery Center in downtown Chaska. “This community is very supportive of people in recovery.” Chaska’s offerings are about to get more diverse as the renowned Minnesota addiction treatment center Hazelden prepares to open the doors of its new outpatient clinic in the Hazeltine Gates building on the north side of town. They join Five Stars Recovery in downtown Chaska and Northland Counseling Services (located in the Two Twelve Medical Center) in providing addiction treatment services to the local area.

It didn’t take any of the Americans very long to realize they were far from the comforts of their lives in suburban Minnesota. “We were in the middle of a civil war where 250,000 people had been killed,” said Haines. “Armies were oppressing the poor.”

As this winter has progressed, construction on the new Southwest Christian High School has made the building more and more visible to those passing by the intersection of Highway 212 and Bavaria Road in Chaska. “We look forward to becoming a bigger part of the Chaska community,” said Head of School Dan Beckering. Construction has prog ressed well due to the exceptionally warm winter. “We’ve been blessed with a wonderful stretch of weather that has allowed us to make a lot of headway, more than we thought we would have by now,” said Randy Nelson, the project supervisor with Bossardt Corporation. In August, the school plans to move from its current location on Peavey Road to the new building on Bavaria Road. The school walls have been visible along the Bavaria Road and Highway 212 intersection for a few months now. Currently, construction crews are working to get the whole building enclosed. “Once we do that and the roof is completed, we’ll be able to heat the

County to inspect boats at Lake Minnewashta BY RICHARD CRAWFORD editor@chanvillager.com

Carver County will be on the front lines in the battle against zebra mussels during the 2012 boating season. On Tuesday, commissioners voted 3-2 to implement a boat inspection program at the countyowned public access at Lake Minnewashta Regional Park. T h e c ou nt y e a r m a rke d $15,500 that will be combined with a matching contribution from the Minnehaha Creek Watershed District to pay for inspectors at the park. “This is a significant milestone and improvement to the current approach of relying on the Department of Natural Re-

sources to provide spot checks,� said Steve Gunther, president of the Lake Minnewashta Preservation Association. Lakeshore groups have been lobbying for more public support in the effort to control the spread of zebra mussels, an aquatic invasive species that can overtake lake ecosystems. Zebra mussels have been identified in Lake Minnetonka, Prior Lake and the Minnesota River. No other infestations have been confi rmed in Carver County lakes. “This is a good fi rst step to protect all lakes,� said County Commissioner Tom Workman, of Chanhassen, who along with commissioners Gayle Degler, of Chanhassen, and Randy Ma-

luchnik, of Chaska, voted for the program. Commissioners Jim Ische of Norwood Young America and Tim Lynch, of Watertown, voted against. Ische expressed concerns about the county taking on work that he said should be a state DNR responsibility. He also questioned what the county will do when other lake groups line up for support. Eric Evenson, with the Minnehaha Creek Watershed District, described the inspection program at Lake Minnewashta as a stop-gap pilot project. He said the watershed district is also working on longer-term plans to fight aquatic invasive species statewide. The program will pay for

inspectors who wi l l monitor boats at the public access from 5 a.m. to 8 p.m., May 15 to Sept. 19. The DNR will provide training to inspectors and law enforcement officials at no cost, according to a staff report. The program is both educational as well as an inspection program, according to Carver County Park Director Marty Walsh. The DNR is also planning to have 20 boat decontamination stations around the state, according to Evenson. Randy Wolf, the county’s director of Public Health and Environment, said tests also are being planned this spring at lakes throughout the county to verify whether zebra mussels are in the lakes.

On thin ice?

Council approves pay increases

Contest organizers optimistic about ice fishing conditions BY MOLLEE FRANCISCO mfrancisco@swpub.com

Last January, Firemen’s Lake was piled high with snow as the annual fi shing contest approached. Now, there’s little snow to worry about clearing away so that anglers can get to the ice. This year, the worry is about having enough ice, period. The warm winter has not been kind to many ice fishing contests, but members of the Chaska Fire Department are hoping luck will be on their side on Saturday for their annual fundraiser. “We’re sweating it a little bit,” said contest organizer Jeff Lenzen. As of Tuesday morning, Lenzen said there was a 95 percent chance Saturday’s event would be on the lake. Twelve inches is the magic number for the fi re department when it comes to ice fi shing. That’s the depth of ice they can be very confident about. Early last week, there was just 8 inches of ice, but cold temperatures helped beef that up to at least 9 inches by late in the week. Members of the fire department were scheduled to go check the ice again mid-week and remain hopeful to fi nd 10 to 12 inches

of good ice. For now, Lenzen is operating as if the 55th annual contest will be on the lake. In the event that the ice is too thin, organizers will move things up to the fi re station on Engler Boulevard. “Either way, we get pretty great support,” said Lenzen. The fishing contest is the fire department’s only fundraiser and can generate upward of $15,000 for things like training and new equipment. Depending on the weather forecast, members of the fi re department will drill between 1,500 and 3,000 holes for Saturday’s contest. Warmer weather tends to draw sizeable crowds to the lake. Last year, mild temperatures drew 2,000 people to Firemen’s Park. Saturday’s outlook calls for partly cloudy skies with a breeze and a high of 23 degrees. “It’s the social event of the year,” said Chaska Mayor Mark Windschitl at Monday night’s

For many anglers, those fish are scarcely bigger than the bait, but once in awhile some decent-sized fi sh are hauled out of Firemen’s Lake. “I’ve seen two Northerns, 8 and 6 pounds,” said Lenzen. Prizes for anglers range from augers and camp chairs to rod/reel combos and depth finders. There are also nonfishing prizes that are given away via raffle tickets. In the past, those prizes have included

TIF district established for redevelopment site Brothers to head up fire department BY MOLLEE FRANCISCO mfrancisco@swpub.com

The Chaska City Council voted unanimously Monday night to establish a Redevelopment Tax Increment Finance District (TIF) at the former Chaska Building Center site on the eastern side of downtown. The TIF District will allow the city to redevelop the property, using future tax dollars to fi nance the debt on the project. The Redevelopment TIF District will last for 25 years. As part of the redevelopment, the city plans to purchase the $4.275 million Klingelhutz Land and Building Compa ny site just east of

County Road 61 and Yellow Brick Road on a contract for deed. City Administrator Matt Podhradsky indicated that they expect to close on the property in April, after all but one of the buildings on the site have been demolished. The city intends to sell back the western-most building for $450,000 to John Klingelhutz’s Chestnut Group for use as a millwork business. The city will have five years to market the rest of the 11-acre site to developers. During that time, they will accrue no interest on the contract. Previously, the city had expected to work out a two-year deal with mortgage holder Bremer Bank. “Five years gives us a little

more wiggle room to market this thing,” said Podhradsky. The Chaska Building Center has been vacant since May 2008. It has since become a key redevelopment site for the city which hopes to create a jobs center by drawing in light industrial and office use for the property. Everwood Development has already expressed a desire to purchase 17.42 acres north of the site for a rental housing development. David Pokorney, spokesperson for Klingelhutz/Chestnut Group, indicated that the demolition of the vacant Chaska Building Center buildings will begin in the next several weeks.

The Chaska Fire Department has elected its officers for 2012. Several of the officers were introduced at Monday night’s Chaska City Council meeting where the council unanimously approved the appointments. Kevin Trebiatowski will serve as chief, with his brother Corey Trebiatowski as first as-

sistant chief and Stephen Kraus as second assistant chief. Rick Zieman was elected first captain, Nate Peterson second captain and Kevin Morrissey third captain. Mike Johnson will serve as fi rst lieutenant, Mike Jernander as second lieutenant and Jerod Feh renbach as third lieutenant. Jason Buntin was elected secretary while Andy Brkovich will serve as treasurer.

The Chaska City Council unanimously approved a 1.5 percent pay increase for both union and non-union city employees Monday night. According to Chaska City Administrator Matt Podhradsky, the increase is comparable with neighboring cities. Carver offered a 2 percent increase, while Chanhassen went with a 1.5 percent increase for 2012. Across the metro, cities averaged a wage increase of 1.3 percent for their employees, Podhradsky said. The city of Chaska will also increase its contributions to employee health insurance by 6.25 percent. The council met in several closed sessions late last year to discuss employee compensation and union contracts. Union contracts cover employees in Public Works as well as in the police department. The council ultimately agreed to a one-year contract with the city’s union employees. In recent years, the council has approved two-year contracts (The last contract covered 2010-2011 and offered 1 percent pay increases every six months.) Podhradsky said that didn’t happen this year because “Everything’s changing so quickly.” He indicated that the economy will help dictate 2013 wages. Discussion among the councilors Monday night appeared to show some discord on the issue of contract length. Councilor Chris Schulz called the decision a “compromise,” and indicated that he thought the city could end up paying more in the long run by only approving a one-year contract. “Or we could pay less,” countered Councilor Greg Boe. Non-union employees are eligible for a 1.5 percent cost of living increase at the time of their annual review.

Smiles

Say It All on Valentine’s Day A statistic gathered from an American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD) survey reveals that people should consider their oral health before asking out that special someone this Valentine’s Day. 88% of Americans feel an unattractive smile makes a person less appealing to a member of the opposite sex. “A healthy smile reflects a positive persona and attitude towards life, major factors people search for in a suitable companion,” commented AACD dentist Dr. John Dunn. “If a person’s smile isn’t as attractive as they wish this Valentine’s Day, cosmetic dentistry can provide solutions to most cases in as little as one trip to the dental office.” The AACD is providing several services for consumers interested in becoming more appealing to members of the opposite sex this Valentine’s Day. As with any dental procedure, the AACD recommends consumers consult with their dentist before undergoing any cosmetic dental treatment.

EDITORIAL

Downtown plan comes together On Feb. 6, the Chaska City Council is set to approve a master plan for downtown. It’s been a long time coming. We’ve editorialized for a downtown focus for several years, and this plan fits the bill. (It can be viewed in full at www.chaskamn.com.) The Downtown Task Force contained a good mix of politicians, business owners, and downtown residents, and they all deserve praise for their work. Many of the plan’s initiatives are already in play. For instance, the city is redeveloping the former Chaska Building Center site, and is seeking businesses and industries to locate there. The city has created plans to expand and improve Athletic Park. It is also in the midst of a street reconstruction project that will focus on improving downtown roads over the next decade. And, a topic that has generated the most controversy, the city is already seeking to develop Firemen’s Park. The city has always been great at planning and goal-setting, but downtown has often been a blind spot. There have been plenty of downtown city initiatives over the last 20 years (Chestnut building; River Gables Apartments; Snyder’s Drug), but they’ve operated relatively independent of one another and have had mixed success. The new downtown plan attempts to weave together existing neighborhoods, as well as future developments, to create a more cohesive downtown. It does this by highlighting Chaska’s unique history as “Minnesota’s Brick City.” Among the plan’s strong points are the new trails, sidewalks and “paseo” (a glorified alley/sidewalk) connections that aim to create a walkable, pedestrian-friendly downtown. Other initiatives call for loans and grants to downtown businesses, revising the city’s sign ordinance, improving neighborhood parks and creating a parking plan. The plan gets a bit grayer when it dives into what businesses downtow n can att ract. For instance, given downtown’s track record, we’re skeptical (but forever hope-

f u l) about creati ng a niche for restaurants or attracting chain businesses. Our biggest skepticism is reserved for one of the plan’s three “catalyst sites” – developments meant to create synergy and bring people downtown. There are a handful of concepts for redevelopment of the northwest corner of Highway 41 and County Road 61 (Firemen’s Park) that fit the bill, with a mix of park and complementary retail space. We’re hopeful that the city can create a plan to make this catalyst site work. The second catalyst site, City Square West Block, just south of City Hall, and across the street from City Square Park, is more dubious. The site currently holds KleinBank, the U.S. Post Office and a strip mall with several small businesses (many catering to the city’s Hispanic population). On one hand, the mid-1900s buildings sit in aesthetically stark contrast to the elegance and charm of the mid-1800s City Square Park just across Chestnut, so a makeover of that block wouldn’t be totally unwelcome. On the other hand, the new plan calls for a four-story complex that runs the risk of overpowering the city’s main street. On one hand, the plan calls for possible new library on the block, which would be great. On the other, the existing businesses provide tax base and jobs and have proven their viability even in a tough economy. So this proposal receives a “Proceed with extreme caution” warning. Regardless, we hope the council begins with the plan and starts implementing many of its recommendations. It’s not the end-all to solving downtown’s woes, but it’s a beginning, and shows city leadership on the issue.

GUEST COLUMNIST

Appreciating little things BY SARA ROBERTS

The past few years have brought many changes to our lives, and for many, not for the better. As most of us live through our first lingering recession, we have witnessed our friends, family members, and neighbors lose jobs, struggle to make payments, and cut back on spending like never before. Not to mention the nightly reminder on the news of a long drawn out war and continued unrest across the world. While many of us naively thought we would likely never experience these things, we have, and we have grown accustomed to it. We have learned that life goes on, and we make do. We have learned that we can shop at Target instead of higher-end shops, and be happy. We have learned we can go camping or road trip to Duluth for vacation instead of fly to paradise, and it’s still fun. We have learned that people lose their job they have had for 15 years, and find another one. We have learned that war is complicated, and so are people’s opinions about it. So what is the silver lining? Where is the rainbow after the storm? I think it is that we are learning to appreciate the little things, and not zoom past them on

our way up the ladder. Knowing that thousands of families are missing loved ones who are at war, we cherish our own a little more. Knowing that the unemployment rate is at an all time high, we appreciate our jobs more. With the prospect of an uncertain future, we learn to save instead of spend, and enjoy an occasional night out with new enthusiasm, even if it is Applebees instead of Manny’s. Perhaps the economy will rally quickly and grow again to the point where our children’s children will be referring to us as the “recession generation” and be laughing at our inclination to keep wads of cash under our mattresses. Maybe we will be horrified at the “youthful spendthrifts” our grandchildren have become and assert that in our day we knew the value of a dollar. Hopefully, we have inherited the ability to teach the next generations to cherish their sense of security because we have learned that it is all too fleeting. As we press forward into this uncertain future, I am confident we have acquired a resiliency that will serve us well as individuals, and as a nation. Sara Roberts is a Victoria resident.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR CARVER-SCOTT CO-OP

Programs help many I have been an employee of the Carver-Scott Educational Cooperative (CSEC) for over 25 years. I would like to respond to the article “Educational co-op wallows in debt,” (Jan. 19) which was published recently in the local papers of Scott and Carver Counties. Yes, the CSEC is experiencing some financial difficulties at the present time, but it appears that there is a system in motion to work through these difficulties in a relatively short time. I am hoping the community and the administration of our member districts can look past the present difficulties and see what the CSEC has done for the community in the last 35 years. In fact, if every person who has ever benefited from any of the educational programs donated $1, I think the fi nancial difficulties would be resolved. Over the years, CSEC has provided educational programs which individual school districts could not afford, but as a cooperative venture, were able to serve a wide variety of student needs. And these services have changed as the needs of our community have changed. CSEC fi rst provided Career and Technical Education programs, which have included: Agriculture, Auto Mechanics, Construction, Cosmetology, Criminal Justice, Computer A+ and Cisco, Graphic Arts, Hospitality, Medical Careers and Photography. Other careeroriented programs have included Work-based Learning, Mentoring and YouthBuild. The CSEC has provided educational services for students who have found it difficult to learn within the regular K-12 system. There have been Alternative Learning Centers, programs for pregnant and parenting teens, programs for students with chemical dependency issues and mental health issues. A wide variety of special education programs have also been provided, such as Early Childhood Special Education, programs for children with Emotional and Behavioral Disorders and transition programming for students who are 18 to 21 years of age. There have been summer programs for credit recoupment, and programs such as Prep Adventure and S Team. The CSEC has been involved in a variety of collaborative efforts to help reduce educational costs. First Step was a one-stop call for anyone having concerns about the development of a young child. CSEC has provided services to the school districts to include psychologists, teachers of the hearing impaired and sign language interpreters, occupational therapists, physical therapists and speech/language therapists. There have been collaborative efforts with county services to provide social workers and mental health therapists. Then there are the adult programs such as classes for English language learners and persons wanting to obtain their GED. CSEC has partnered

with Dunwoody Institute for college classes. It has supported Magnifying Abilities, a social and recreational program for adults with special needs. It has partnered with MRCI to support employment opportunities for adults with special needs. (Please forgive me if I have forgotten any programs.) I am hoping the community and administration of the member school districts in Carver and Scott counties will find ways to continue to support the CSEC in its effort to provide educational services.

CAUCUSES

More civil than saloons Remember the old fi lms in which the local folks got together at the saloon to ‘hash out’ issues probably related to a bigger problems and organizing to change someone or something. They usually resolved it without violence, at least during the gathering, although some tables might get tipped over. Our precincts today are our political neighborhoods, and the caucuses are the neighborhood gatherings. In Carver County they are more civil than the ones in the saloons in the old days. Ideally, the precinct neighborhoods would interact more than they do. A good way to be proactive in the Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party is to write a resolution to bring to the caucus. During the caucus, time is allowed for writing up a resolution, but it is a good idea to think about it before the caucus and write it out so you can quickly transpose it on to the proper form during the caucus. Submitting a well thought-out resolution may well get to the state level and get some attention. You will have time to present your resolution at the caucus. The caucus is required to start at 7 p.m., with registration at 6:30 p.m., but it is not required to end until 9 pm., so there is time for discussion. The caucus site for Chaska DFlers, and anyone not belonging to another political party, is the Chaska Middle School West at 140 Engler Boulevard. In Chanhassen the site is the Bluff Creek Elementary School at 2300 Coulter Boulevard. Come to the gathering, young and old, and meet some of your fellow Democrats, and maybe agree to meet again!

Too much at stake T he upcoming neighborhood caucuses are an opportunity for Republicans to show their support for local Republican candidates and their choice for the Republican Party Presidential nominee. There is too much at stake to be spectators. If conservatives and Republicans are going to win the White House, we must begin on Tuesday, Feb. 7 at the Republican Party pre-

cinct caucuses. Find you caucus location by accessing our website: www.carvergop.com.

TAX PLANS

Proposals fall flat John Brunette offers a spirited rebuttal of Jim Weygand’s Jan. 12 column in the Chaska Herald, but unfortunately, he still has his facts wrong (“Republicans will move ahead,” Jan. 19). It is not impossible to show the distribution of taxes at the state and local level as Brunette asserts. The State Department of Revenue does this every two years, as Weygand noted in his original column. They do so through a rigorous statistical analysis based on evaluation of over 100,000 randomly selected state tax returns as well as spending data for thousands of Minnesota households collected by the Department of Labor and the United States Census Bureau. The logic used by the Department of Revenue meets the approval of our Republican State Sen. Julianne Ortman, who authored a bill passed last legislative session to expand the scope this study. Certainly, Sen. Ortman would not take such a step if she felt the logic being used to create the analysis were fundamentally incorrect. Don’t also be fooled by discussions of a flat tax. When folks like Brunette talk about “flat taxes,” they are talking about nothing of the sort. The current flat tax proposals being bandied about by Republican presidential candidates aren’t flat at all – they exempt large chunks of income (capital gains, interest, and dividends) that largely go to taxpayers at the top of the income scale. That means they won’t “hit everyone equally across the board” – not by a long shot. Every tax plan offered by a Republican presidential candidate would slash taxes on the wealthiest Americans, and would widen the gap between taxes on wealth and taxes on work. Mitt Romney’s tax plan, for instance, would cut his current tax rate (about 15 percent) roughly in half – so he would be paying less than 10 percent of his income in federal income taxes. Under Newt Gingrich’s “flat tax” plan, the average millionaire would have their after-tax income increased by 37 percent, and they would pay a lower percentage of their income in taxes than a person making $40,000 a year. Brunette, then, is asking for an argument against a plan that doesn’t actually exist. President Obama and the remaining Republican candidates have laid out their visions for the future. We’d be better served having a debate about that instead of worrying about Brunette’s distortions.

GUEST COMMENTARY

Jobs are Republicans’ No. 1 priority A couple of de c ade s a go Gov. Rudy Perpich listed the go a l s of t he legislative session as “Jobs – Jobs – Jobs.” Twenty years David later, the MinSenjem nesota Republican Majority echoes the goal: “Jobs – Jobs – Jobs.” Next week we return to the Capitol for the 2012 Session with a significantly rosier budget situation. Through prudent and tough decisions, we were able to manage Minnesota’s budget from a $5 billion deficit to a $876 million surplus. For the fi rst time in years, heavy budget deficits will not burden legislative decision makers. We need to remain prudent and wise in any spending/taxing decision so the right directions we are on fi nancially will not be reversed. Importantly, the cash f low (state’s checking) and budget reserve (savings) accounts have been re-fi lled. If the February forecast show continued positive growth, law-

makers will consider using those funds to pay back the additional $700 million borrowing against school funding – the “school shift” agreement with Gov. Dayton – that helped balance the budget. Preliminary January updates to that forecast show continued growth, primarily due to stronger than projected individual income tax payments. While the economic growth is welcome news and the state’s economists are looking to more confident consumers and stronger labor markets, some factors – like unrest in Europe – remain out of our control. Believing the best remedy for the state budget is a thriving economy that allows hard-working families and employers to succeed, we go into the 2012 legislative session as an opportunity to improve the business climate, reduce burdensome regulations, and provide the environment for small and large businesses to grow and thrive here in Minnesota. A positive jobs environment is our No. 1 priority. During the legislative interim, many Republican senators met with business leaders, entrepreneurs and small busi-

ness owners throughout the state in effort to find ways we can put our economy back on track. Senate Republicans, with a new year and new leadership, we have a renewed commitment to limited, sensible government and lower taxes. Seizing on opportunities for new reforms and building on successes from last session, our goal is to put Minnesota back on the path to prosperity by continuing to remove obstacles for job creators. In 2011, Republicans prioritized reforms to promote job creation including reducing legislative earmarking, creating competitive grant programs, and streamlining the business permitting process to expedite project approvals – thereby putting more Minnesotans back to work. Senate Republicans sought out ways to restrain excessive government spending, and made some long-term changes. Instead of the status quo, we looked to successful private sector firms for innovative ideas on how to streamline government programs, and found better ways to fight fraud. We took away costly state mandates on our local schools to give them

more local budget flexibility and invite in new educators. Moving into 2012 we continue this approach: It is by changing the way government operates that we will improve service delivery, achieve longterm structural cost savings for Minnesota taxpayers, and again be able to provide the best services to more citizens. Government redesign is not only about efficiency; it is about getting the right services and programs to the right people. Reforms will dominate all facets of this brief session, from education, to health care and energy. Senate Republicans want to promote innovation, investment and entrepreneurship to bring out the best about Minnesota to build long-term prosperity. I encourage all citizens to be active participants in our democracy, to attend their upcoming precinct caucuses, to follow legislative leaders on the Senate and House websites and local newspapers and let your opinions be heard.

Tech ed important to America’s future How two year degrees can help fuel the economy This year I invited Kevin Kopischke, president of Alexandria Technical & Community College, to join me at the State of the Union speech last Tuesday evening. I believe his presence helps me highlight the importance of technical education for the future of America’s economy. And, have no doubt, revitalizing the economy continues to be the central challenge facing our nation. At Alexandria Technical & Community College, Kevin has an innovative program that trains students for the technologically-advanced fields of manufacturing automation and motion control, especially in the packaging industry. In a time when too many people are out of work, the program has a job placement rate of 96 percent. Each year, it also provides customized training and continuing education courses for 5,000 existing Minnesota businesses. It prepa res students for high-tech positions that do not require a Ph.D. or even a fouryear college degree, but nonetheless demand specialized training and experience.

KLOBUCHAR GUEST COMMENTARY

From paper mills to poultry lines, American industry is changing. Increasingly, economic success depends on advanced technology as well as the workers who have specialized skills to use that technology and get the job done. I have seen this firsthand the past few months with my “Made in America” economic tour across our state. The tour has taken me to nearly 30 communities, where I’ve seen many great Minnesota businesses that are keeping our economy strong. For example, I met with workers at Du luth Pack, a homegrown company in Duluth that’s been making outdoor gear for 130 years.

I’ve found other business success stories in communities, large and small, across the state. I’ve found them in places like Apple Valley, where Uponor is a leading manufacturer of plumbing and heating products for residential and commercial spaces. Its North American headquarters in Apple Valley employs 380 people and includes a state-of-the-art training center as well as the compa ny’s ma nu fact u ri ng facility. And I’ve found success in places like Chisholm and Brainerd, where Brainerd’s LINDAR packaging and plastic company employs 100 people. Eight years ago Chishol m’s Minnesota Twist Drill employed 45 workers and today it employs 132. These companies know they must continuously innovate and adapt to succeed. They are already producing the jobs of tomorrow – today. We need more like them. But I often hear from Minnesota business leaders that they can’t fi nd enough highlyskilled workers. There are open jobs at many of the companies I’ve visited. Yet many of them, especially those in high-tech fields, can’t fi nd workers to fi ll

them. A recent nationa l study forecasts a serious mismatch between future skill requirements in the job market and skill levels of the workforce. The study estimates that, by 2018, 70 percent of all jobs in Minnesota will require at least some postsecondary education, putting the state third in the nation, behind only Massachusetts and Colorado. T hat’s why I’m worki ng right now to develop federal legislation that would, among other things, build on the success in Alexandria by providing incentives for small and mid-sized manufacturers to work with their local technical and community colleges. I see this as just one part of a broader competitive agenda for our economy – which would include cutting regulatory red tape, reducing the deficit, promoting more R&D and boosting science and math in our schools. We should have a clear goal for the economic state of the union: To be a country once again that thinks, that invents, that makes things and exports to the world. Amy Klobuchar represents Minnesota as a U.S. senator.

It is time for a change and you and your readers can help. Special Olympics athletes/ Best Buddies participants accomplish great things, are members of our local communities and churches and deserve the same respect and dignity that each of us expects from others in return in our daily lives. Help drive much needed change that will bring acceptance and inclusion to our community – include the R-word into your “Not Fit to Print” publishing guidelines alongside other hurtful and profane words. Your paper reaches not only Chaska, but the surrounding area and with that influence you can help us get all of those members of the community to take the pledge at www.r-word. org. If the role of a local leader like the Chaska Herald is to inform and effect positive change in the community, what better way than helping us to Spread the Word to End the Word and in turn, create communities of acceptance and inclusion for all people? Please, we need you and your readers to pledge at www.r-word.org.

MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR.

Writing a really good sentence The Martin Luther King holiday has come and gone, and if most of us thought about it at all, it was to recollect his best-known speeches or events surrounding his assassination. History has a way of being reduced to a few core items. W hi le listeni ng to a CD about writing better sentences, I came across a single long sentence from MLK’s “Letter from Birmingham Jail” designated as a “master sentence” – an example of a sentence so well-composed that it serves as an ongoing example of how a sentence should be written. The sentence has 355 words and is unusual because it has a period followed by a capital letter in the middle of it (so maybe it is two sentences): “I guess it is easy for those who have never felt the stinging darts of segregation to say, ‘Wait.’ But when you have seen vicious mobs lynch your mothers and fathers at will and drown your sisters and brothers at whim; when you have seen hate filled policemen curse, kick, brutalize and even kill your black broth-

HAZELDEN  continued from page 1

NEED Hazelden has been expanding their services in the Twin Cities metro over the last two to three years as demand has increased. “ We go wher e t he ne e d seems to be greater,” said Terri Hayden, executive director of Hazelden in St. Paul. After opening an outpatient facility in Maple Grove last May, Hazelden watched the program quickly fill up. It didn’t take long for the 63-year-old non-profit to wonder where they could locate in the south metro to serve the local population. They found the perfect home (complete with a calming view of the Par 30 Golf Course) in Chaska. “We’ve learned that people will drive about 10 miles,” said

NEW OPTIONS The most noticeable difference between the old and new

“Chaska’s clearly got something special. This community is very supportive of people in recovery.”

Hazelden’s program will be much smaller than Five Stars and will be exclusively outpatient. Hayden said Hazelden plans to open serving 10 adults

and six to eight youth. “As need continues, we’ll take a look at our staffing,” said Hayden. Hazelden’s approach to treatment is to look at the mind, body and spirit, she said. “We’re the leader in treating co-occurring disorders,” Hayden added. Hazelden’s outpatient program in Chaska will allow clients to practice what they are learning in treatment and have continued support while maintaining a home/work/ school life. “Outpatient is real time, real life,” said Hayden. The initial intensive treatment program lasts six weeks with an additional, less intense eight-week follow-up. Hazelden also offers an 18 month Webbased program. “We’ve found that the longer someone stays engaged in treatment, the better sustained their

abstinence and quality of life,” said Hayden. Hazelden’s Chaska location will be one of just a handful of metro clinics licensed to treat adolescents as young as 12 years of age. “It allows us to get in and do prevention early,” noted Hayden. “Kids are experimenting younger and younger.” “Addiction affects people of all ages,” said Hazelden President and CEO Mark G. Mishek, in a press release. “In addition to expanding services for adults, Hazelden is reaching out like never before to young people. We don’t want them missing out on the good stuff of growing up, being with friends they can count on, figuring out what they’re good at and achieving their academic goals.” “They do a good job of shedding the light on addiction,”

said Palmby, of Hazelden. And it plans to continue to do so in Chaska, with informational sessions open to the public that discuss trends in addiction and treatment, said Hayden. “The Hazelden business plan is to be highly visible,” said Podhradsky, adding, “I think it’s great to see their services come to town.”

“For at least 12 years, our teams have had to drive farther for a home game than many of our away,” said Beckering. The new building will also allow the school to look towards the future, said Beckering. “We have big, bold ideas, which would be hard to accomplish on our current campus, so we want to use the new facility to do an even better job of developing our students as servants of God and the community,” he said. O ne ide a i nvolve s t he school’s vision of technology.

T he constr uction plans do not include several computer labs, as the entire building will include wireless Internet access. “Our bigger vision, which will take time to implement, is to offer our curriculum to those not necessarily on our campus, whether for individuals, home-schooling or a satellite campus and this facility can be the home base for that,” said Beckering. Other school plans include partnering student projects with local industry and an en-

trepreneurial program. “Most schools, both public and private, are looking at how to best equip their students to step into the world as members and leaders of their communities,” said Beckering. The new site includes space for a second phase of construction that would add another 65,000 square feet to the building and increase student enrollment capacity to 600. The timing of the second phase is dependent on enrollment growth and available funding.

Although Beckering said the school is looking forward to options not available with the current facility, they are committed to not lose sight of what they do well currently. “We’re really excited about the education we are currently able to offer,” said Beckering. “Our alumni say they left our cl a s sr o om s wel l-pr ep a r e d for their fur ther academic studies and careers while being taught to think about all aspects of life in a Christian way.”

Hayden who expects to draw clients from Shakopee, Waconia and Chanhassen to the Chaska facility. Hazelden will celebrate with a Feb. 23 ribbon cutting ceremony. It will begin treating adults at the 5,400-square-foot Hazeltine Gates location on March 1 and will open its doors to adolescents on April 1. Palmby doesn’t expect Hazelden to affect the Five Stars operations too much. “They are two different styles of program,” he said. Between meetings and treatment, Five Stars sees 300 to 400 people walk through the doors each week. Managing Director Jason Vanderscoff said some of those clients come in multiple times per week. Some of those clients are also residents in one of the city’s several sober houses. Five Stars is currently in the

process of renovating a couple of buildings on Stoughton Avenue for an inpatient treatment facility for men that is scheduled to open in the next six to eight weeks. The Sugar Creek Inpatient Treatment Center will serve up to 24 men when it is fi nished. Vanderscoff said that although Five Stars is seeing a little bit of a lull right now, it does have a waiting list for beds in sober housing. Its newest sober house, the C.H. Klein mansion (former home of the Peacock Inn Bed and Breakfast off of City Square Park) has been full since it began serving women three months ago.

building is the size. The school has been located in the former Nordic Track headquarters on Peavey Road since 2000 and has an enrollment of about 172 students. The new building will be approximately 62,560 square feet on 29 acres, and able to accommodate 350 students. The new school will hold a gymnasium big enough for two full-size basketball courts or three volleyball courts when set up for practices. SWCHS has rented gym space from Crown College and other locations in the past.

Responding personnel found the home with visible fl ames showing. While fi ghting the fi re, personnel located a de c e a s e d wom a n , A n n a M a r y We g m a n , 8 5 , i n t he residence. An investigation is ongoing. The Cologne Fire Department responded to the scene and was assisted by fi re departments from Chaska, Carver, Nor wo o d You n g A mer ic a , Waconia, Hamburg and Mayer.

At 12:47 p.m., Jan. 17, Chaska police officers responded to a welfare check at the Ramsey Court home of Clarence, 67, and Mary Keaveny, 63. On entering the home, officers found the Keaveneys deceased, said Chaska Police Capt. Jon Kehrberg. The police are awaiting the fi nal report from the medical examiner, Kehrberg said, but there is “no reason to believe that foul play was involved.” The couple’s funeral services were held on Monday morning at Guardian Angels Catholic Church.

goal of that program is to locate criminal aliens incarcerated in federal and state prisons, as well as local jails, and prevent them from being released into the general population. If convicted, Ceballos, also known as Christian Gutierrez, faces a potential maximum penalty of 20 years in prison. All sentences will be determined by a federal district court judge. This case is the result of an investigation by the Chaska Police Department and ICE’s Enforcement and Removal Operations (“ICE ERO”). It is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney David P. Steinkamp. Ceballos will remain in custody until his current federal cases are resolved, and will be deported after serving his sentences.

Charges have been filed against Cristian Paolo Gutierrez Ceballos, 28, who entered the United States illegally after being deported as a criminal, according to a U.S. Attorney’s Office press release. Ceballos’ indictment alleges that on Dec. 21, 2011, he was found in the U.S. illegally after having been previously deported to Guatemala. Ceballos’ deportation followed a 2006 Nevada conviction for attempted lewdness with a child under the age of 14, the release stated. The current federal indictment resulted from Ceballos’ Dec. 21 arrest for not possessing a driver’s license. He was in the Carver County Jail when he was identified as an illegal alien though the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Criminal Alien Program (“CAP”). The

Construction is progressing quickly at Mills Fleet Farm in Carver.

BY NICK MASON nicholascmason@comcast.net

July 10 is the new target date for opening the Mills Fleet Farm store being built in the city of Carver. Construction started last June and is progressing faster than expected, due at least partly to generally dry weather last fall and mild conditions this winter. “They are doing pretty well on rain days. It’s been a pretty good fall for them,” Carver Building Official Mark Pistulka told the Carver City Council on Jan. 3. Mi l ls P roper ties I nc. of Brainerd previously set the month of August to open the Fleet Farm and companion Mills Gas Mart convenience store and Mills Car Wash on Levi Griffi n Road, northwest of Highway 212 and Jonathan Carver Parkway. A w r it t en c on st r uc t ion schedu le submitted by the project ma nager for Mi l l s

Properties to Carver city officials identifies July 10 for Fleet Farm to start welcoming customers. “It’s fairly accurate,” Pistulka told councilors of the schedule. “But it could shift up to four or five days.” The schedule also identifies “substantial completion” of the car wash on Feb. 29 and of the convenience store on March 26. Exterior paving for both buildings is scheduled in late May. Mills Properties is not expected to open the convenience store or car wash before the Fleet Farm opens. “It’s my understanding Mills wants to open all of them at the same time,” Pistulka told the Chaska Herald. Ron Obeidzinski, vice president and chief fi nancial officer of Mills Properties, could not be reached for comment. He did not return two telephone calls with voice-mail messages left for him this month. Bruce Buxton of Widseth

Smith Nolting, the project manager for Mills Properties, declined to make any public comment about the construction schedule his fi rm submitted to city officials. The city’s contractor building Levi Griffi n Road, which serves as the entrance road to the Mills complex, has a June 30 deadline to fi nish work. But City Engineer Dan Boyum told the City Council that the four-lane road could handle traffic before Ryan Contracting Co. of Elko finishes the project. Councilors and their staff spent about a year negotiating a deal with Mills Properties to launch commercial development along the Highway 212 corridor. Councilors agreed to pay Mills Properties a maximum public subsidy exceeding $1.48 million because they believe a high-profi le Fleet Farm will spark several more commercial developments nearby. The subsidy is structured as a partial

Carver city officials saved $294,360 of city sewer funds by standing up to a regional government agency and sticking to their guns. Metropolitan Council Environmental Services (MCES) last week retreated from its adversarial position and accepted the city’s stance that the city does not owe MCES sewer connection charges for some Carver properties under development. MCES is part of Metropolitan Council, the regional plan-

ning agency based in St. Paul that also provides a variety of services to residents of Carver County and six other counties in the Twin Cities metro area. The disagreement started last month when MCES and Carver city officials met to begin the roughly year-long transition process of MCES taking over treatment of Carver’s sewage. Large sewer pipes are being installed now so Carver’s sewage will f low to a MCES regional wastewater treatment plant. City officials said the disputed amount wound up being a hefty $294,360, mostly because of sewer connection charges totaling $225,230 that MCES wanted to collect from Carver city government for the Mills Fleet Farm, Mills Gas Mart convenience store and Mills Car Wash being built northwest of Highway 212 and Jonathan Carver Parkway.

MCES informed city officials Dec. 6, 2011, that the city would be liable starting that day to pay sewer system connection charges (also called Sewer Availability Charges, or SAC) to MCES for all new sewer customers. No payment to MCES was required for any existing customer connected to the city’s sewer system prior to Dec. 6. The key issue quickly became interpretation of a rule published in the MCES Sewer Availability Charge procedures manual about when a developer’s project is considered connected to the city’s sewer system. The manual contains no defi nition of its term “hookup.” City Administrator Brent Mareck and City Planner Cindy Nash contended the city did not owe MCES connection charges for the Mills project and 31 residences because those devel-

The result were plans for a 255,509 square-foot (almost 6 acres) Fleet Farm, a 4,307 square-foot convenience store with gasoline, diesel and kerosene dispensers, and a 5,080 square-foot car wash with four washing bays.

opers physically connected, or “hooked up,” their new sewer pipes on their properties to the city’s sewer network of pipes prior to Dec. 6. MCES Finance Director Jason Willett initially disagreed and contended that a new customer is not “hooked up” until the customer receives a utility bill for sewer service. The Mills property and 31 unoccupied residences were not producing sewage or being issued utility bills for sewer service prior to Dec. 6. “I don’t know the answer. I probably need legal advice to see what that means,” Willett told the Chaska Herald on Jan. 13 when he was asked the definition of hook-up. “Generally, it means existing customers who are paying.”

city officials that any development with sewer pipes physically connected to the city’s sewer system before Dec. 6 will be granted “grandparented” status as an existing customer and the city will not be liable to pay MCES connection charges. “We needed to work through how some of the rules apply to their situation, and we did that. We understand each other now,” Willett said. “If it’s hooked up and available for sewage, they will be grandparented. That is the literal interpretation of our rules.” Sewage pipes for the Mills Fleet Farm and Mills Car Wash were connected to the city’s

sewer network of pipes on Sept. 28, 2011, according to Nash. The sewage pipe for Mills Gas Mart was connected to the city’s system on Sept. 12, 2011. W hen asked speci fically about the Mills property, Willett said once the September connection dates are verified by MCES, “They will all be grandparented in. The city does not have to pay us.” Willett said he did not remember having any conversation with any other city during his 10 years as MCES fi nance director about the defi nition of sewer “hook-up” for determining liability for MCES sewer

100 tee off at Soggy Bottom

Proceeds go to boy’s vision tests BY NICK MASON nicholascmason@comcast.net

About 100 golfers played in the snow Saturday at Riverside Park in Carver to raise money for a Carver boy losing sight and needing expensive vision tests. Golfers used golf clubs, hockey sticks and other devices to smack tennis balls over the improvised 18-hole layout on a sunny yet blustery afternoon – and many looked like pros, including two hole-in-one shots by Russ Boegeman and John von Walter. T he thi rd annua l Sogg y Bottom III tournament was sponsored by the Carver Lions Club and Carver Fire & Rescue Department as a benefit to raise money for Andrew Steines, 9, of Carver. “It was pretty crowded all day, probably 100 golfers and 50 spectators. It was double the amount of people we had last year,” tournament co-chair Tim Craig said. “We ran out of chili and some other stuff. “ I do t h i n k t her e i s a n Andrew effect to the whole thing,” Craig said. “When you can put a face to the project, it makes a big difference. Anytime you can get that many people together to volunteer their time for somebody, it’s very cool.” Craig said the golf tournament raised $2,000 to $3,000 for

“I do think there is an Andrew effect to the whole thing. When you can put a face to the project, it makes a big difference. Anytime you can get that many people together to volunteer their time for somebody, it’s very cool.” Tim Craig Tournament co-chair the Steines family. Still to come are proceeds from a drawing for an annual membership to Dahlgreen Golf Club, which is scheduled Feb. 3 during the Carver Fire Relief Association annual steak fry at Carver City Hall. Andrew said he could not fi nd his intended hockey stick at home, so he instead brought a golf club to take the ceremonial fi rst tee shot to start tournament play. He whacked the tennis ball half way toward the hole.

connection charges. “I don’t recall that coming up anywhere,” Willett said. “In recent years, there has not been a lot of [construction] activity. Carver is lucky enough to have things going on there.” Gary Van Eyll, the Metropolitan Council governing board member representing all of Carver County, most of Scott County and part of Hennepin County, was monitoring the disagreement and pleased to have it resolved. “I had asked our staff what was going on. I’m glad they worked this out with the city,” Van Eyll said. “It doesn’t make any sense for us to be fighting with them.” Mareck said there are no hard feelings toward Metropolitan Council Environmental Services. “There is no animosity between the city and MCES,” Mareck said. “They are great to work with. Jason was open to taking in our ideas. I don’t want this portrayed as the city and MCES were at odds. We worked it out and will move on.” MCES does not wind up empty-handed. The city does not dispute that MCES is entitled to sewer connection fees totaling $31,220 and potentially $ 9,460 more later this year for five properties that did not have sewer pipes physically connected to the city’s sewer system prior to Dec. 6, 2011. “There are some properties that were not connected [by Dec. 6]. Those we will have to pay the fees,” Mareck said.

CITY COUNCIL ALERTED The dispute became public Jan. 3 when Nash gave verbal

and written summaries during a Carver City Council meeting. “On December 21st, MCES staff sent the city an e-mail that states that the city would need to remit MCES SAC to the Met Council for any structure based on whether or not it was generating a utility bill on the [Dec. 6] trigger date,” Nash wrote. “Upon reviewing the MCES SAC Procedures Manual and other relevant documents and statutes, staff is of the opinion that structures that were hooked-up by the SAC trigger date are grandfathered as a part of the city system.” Nash alerted councilors that “preliminary estimates” were that $300,000 to $350,000 was at stake and involved structures under construction at the Mills complex, Minnesota Depar tment of Transportation truck station and Spring Creek and Lylewood Glen housing subdivisions. If the city lost its argument, the city would have been obligated to pay MCES connection charges from the city’s sewer capital fund because the city cannot impose new MCES charges on those property owners, Nash explained. “The city does not have a mechanism for collecting those MCES SAC fees for these properties from their owners, who previously paid city SAC fees between 2007 and November 2011,” Nash wrote. Nash answered “yes” when Councilor Mike Webb asked whether the city had a sound legal basis to take the position that properties previously physically connected to the city sewer system were entitled to grandfathering. She said the issue was reviewed with City Attorney Larry Harris.

The cast of “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown” performs the title song during a dress rehearsal of the show. The musical, based on Charles M. Schulz’s “Peanuts” comic strip, was written by Clark Gesner and John Gordon.

The Gang’s all here Charlie Brown, Snoopy and Peanuts crew come alive at Bloomington Civic Theatre BY MERYN FLUKER mfluker@swpub.com

D

o you remember when you first met the Peanuts gang? “I think I grew up reading the comics in the newspaper,” says 23-year-old Tyler Michaels. “When I was in preschool, I dressed up in a Snoopy costume and danced around the playground for a talent show,” recalls 26-year-old Adam Qualls. Michaels and Qualls are now bringing the characters of Charles M. Schulz’s classic comic strip to life in the Bloomington Civic Theatre’s (BCT) production of “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown,” which runs through Saturday, Feb. 11 at the BCT’s Schneider Theater, 1800 W. Old Shakopee Road, Bloomington. Qualls dons the iconic yellow collared shirt to play the titular character while Michaels unleashes his inner beagle to play Brown’s canine companion, Snoopy. Overseeing it all is Director Joe Chvala, who spent a lot of time with the Peanuts crew – which also includes Lucy, Linus and Schroeder, all of whom are in “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown” – during his childhood in

Madison, Wis. “They were always the first strip when you’d read the comics in the newspaper,” he says. “I was kind of obsessed with it.” Helming “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown” is a fitting career step for Chvala, who as a child made a Charlie Brown dictionary – featuring the strip’s signature catchphrases, such as “good grief !” – and played Charlie Brown in a high school production. “When I was a kid, I felt like those characters lived really close to me,” Chvala says. “I got a real sense of being in my backyard … There’s a real sense of the Midwest that Charles Schulz brings.” For the director and cast, performing the show for Twin Cities’ audiences is a special rush. Schulz was born in Minneapolis and spent much of his childhood living in St. Paul. Even though there hasn’t been a simple new “Peanuts” panel since Schulz died in February 2000, a new generation has been able to discover Charlie Brown’s world through books, reprints and the more than 30 animated movies and TV specials, some of which still air annually.

If you go… What: “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown” When: 7:30 p.m. Jan. 28, Feb. 1-4 and Feb. 9-11; 2 p.m. Jan. 29, Feb. 5 and Feb. 11 Where: Schneider Theater, Bloomington Civic Theatre, 1800 W. Old Shakopee Road, Bloomington Cost: $28 for adults, $25 for students and seniors and $12 for children (subtract $3 from adult, student and senior prices for Wednesday performances) Info: bloomingtoncivic theatre.org

“You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown” premiered in 1967 and was revived on Broadway in 1999. While director Chvala describes the show as “a series of comic strips set to music,” the stage production adds another dimension to the characters – literally. “I think the interpretation we do on stage is very different from what they do in the cartoons,” Michaels says. “I think the fun of it is being able to fill that in, taking a character and making him three-dimensional.” “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown” has

From left, Snoopy, Sally, Linus, Lucy and Schroeder ride the school bus – which their friend Charlie Brown has missed – during the opening song in “You’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown.”

‘Peanuts’ shells “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown” is a stage musical based on the legendary “Peanuts” comic strip created by Minneapolis native Charles M. Schulz. Here’s a primer on all things “Peanuts:” “Peanuts” debuted in seven newspapers on Oct. 2, 1950. The strip ran for 50 years, with creator Charles Schulz dying on Feb. 12, 2000 – just hours before the final Sunday strip appeared in newspapers. In its 50 year history, 17,897 original “Peanuts” comic strips ran. At the peak of its popularity, “Peanuts” ran in more than 2,600 newspapers, with a readership

something for everyone, but unlike a lot of current family friendly entertainment, which relies on winking humor and double entendres

of 355 million in 75 countries. The strip was also translated into 21 different languages. There have been more than 30 animated “Peanuts” television specials and films, including “A Charlie Brown Christmas,” “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” and “A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving,” many of which are still rerun on TV annually. “Peanuts” features main character Charlie Brown, his pet beagle Snoopy, as well as pals Lucy, her little brother Linus (and his blanket), Franklin, piano player Schroeder, Peppermint Patty, Sally and Charlie’s crush, the Little Red-Haired Girl. Sources: The Charles M. Schulz Museum and Peanuts.com

to keep parents’ attention, “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown” is pure fun. “It’s kind of more an all ages show, not a children’s

show. But kids will love it,” Chvala says. “It’s not tonguein-cheek at all.” “It’s very earnest,” adds Qualls.

Beginners soon become experts. Lee Carlson of Chanhassen, at left, prepares to serve the ball. The Chanhassen Rec Center sponsored a Pickleball demonstration Monday morning.

Pickleball is game for all BY UNSIE ZUEGE uzuege@swpub.com

LAKE ANN 12 PM, SAT. FEB. 4, 2012

Start lining up. From what they say, Pickleball is incredibly easy to learn, and maddeningly addictive. Pickleball has come to Chanhassen. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel bad if you havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t heard of it. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like ping pong on steroids, or downsized tennis. It can be played by singles or doubles, on a badminton-sized court (or one-fourth of a regulation tennis court). Players hit a perforated plastic ball with paddles over a net, 34 inches high (two inches lower than a tennis net). Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s extremely popular in Florida, Texas, and Arizona where it can be played on outdoor courts year-round. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also become popular in northern climates. While many of its followers are snowbirds who fi rst picked up the game down South, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also played in schools as part of physical education programs. In According to Richard Carter of Bloomington, also known as the Pickleball Man in Minnesota, and editor of www. minnesotapickleball.com, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one of the fastest g rowing sports in the country.

HANDS ON DEMO Chanhassenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Park and Recreation Department had a free demonstration Monday at the Chan Rec Center. In addition to a half dozen experienced players from Eden Prairie on hand to coach and teach the game, nearly a dozen people from Chanhassen and Victoria attended. Jerry Maas of Bloomington

downplays his swell title of Pickleball Ambassador, but he does make a good one. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s upbeat, energetic, and eager to share Pickleball information and facts. Maas, 75, plays in Bloomington and helped get the Eden Prairie Pickleball club started two years ago. On Monday, he provided an overview of the game, the fundamentals, keeping score, and then commenced hands-on demos, assisted by members of the Eden Prairie Pickleball club. Among the newcomers were Jim and Carol Hersman, Frieda Olin, Dick Berg, Jeff Conradi and Lee Carlson, all of Chanhassen, and Bob and Carol Ferris of Victoria. As they split into teams, Carter provided insight from the bleachers on why the sport has caught on so quickly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It came to Minnesota two years ago,â&#x20AC;? Carter said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A couple guys had come back from vacation where they picked it up and they started playing it up here. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grown exponential-

ly since then. Today there are more than 400 active players in Minnesota, and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got clubs in Bloomington, Woodbury, Eden Prairies, Minnetonka, Apple Valley, St. Paul.â&#x20AC;?

BABY BOOMERS Asked why itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s caught on, Carter, 61 pointed to himself. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I played racquet ball,â&#x20AC;? Carter said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Five years ago, Mayo Clinic told me I had to stop. On the other hand, Pickleball is on a smaller court and you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to move over as much territory. You get a good workout, and you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to be tall or imposing to be good at it. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one of the few sports that men and women can play at equal skill levels so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really popular with married couples. A lot of times, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the wife who brings the husband and gets him started.â&#x20AC;? Paul Olson, 61, an avid player from Bloomington, used to play tennis. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But I had problems with my knees,â&#x20AC;? Olson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I used to play two times a week,

and it would take days for the swelling to go down. But I can play Pickleball three or four times a week, with no swelling or pain.â&#x20AC;? Maas knows of several couples who used to play a round of golf several times during the week. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve all taken up Pickleball, he said, citing not only the lower cost, but the exercise benefits. Both men point out that one of the best things is that all ages can play together. Olson described playing in the Eden Prairie community center. A few high school kids came in, waiting for the court to free up. They played Pickleball in high school phys ed, so they were invited to join in a game while they waited for basketball. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They were surprised that the old guys had some tricks up their sleeves,â&#x20AC;? Olson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It really opened their eyes. But thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wonderful about it. Any age can play, and be good at it.â&#x20AC;?

Friday Nights! Elliott Blaufuss, at left, with his music mentor Johnny Holm. Blaufuss played with the popular hard working Johnny Holm Band which toured about 270 days a year, for four years.

Chaska grad makes music vocation and inspiration Studied at the ‘College of Johnny’ BY UNSIE ZUEGE uzuege@swpub.com

Ch a n h a s s en n at ive a nd Chaska High School graduate Elliott Blaufuss hustled his fi rst gig at the age of 10 or 11 years old at Chanhassen Elementary School during the school’s fun fair. From there he went on to play at neighborhood block parties and nursery schools. That passion to play and work as a full-time musician has led him to a career touring with Kelly Clarkson, Jason Mraz and David Gray, and appearing with the Eric Hutchinson Band on the Conan O’Brien Show. And he has an honorary Gold Record, too. Although he didn’t play on the original recording of “Rock and Roll,” an international best selling song by the Eric Hutchinson Band, Blaufuss received an honorary gold record acknowledging his work and “I did record in other capacities so it’s a nice token of appreciation from the RAOA [the Recording Association of America].” Despite traveling and playing around the world, Blaufuss still calls the Twin Cities home. He recently played at a Chanhassen bar for the hometown audience. When not on the road touring — he plays and tours with about five or six bands — he plays with his own group, Elliott and the Sensitive Fellas, which just completed an album. Blaufuss described the music as acoustic roots and soul with some bluegrass and jazz. He laughed when reminded of his first group the Rockabilly Boys and their frequent bookings at the Chanhassen July 4 activities with the city. “We played wherever we could,” Blaufuss said of his early band, who in addition to Blaufuss, were Danny Scott, Michael Dezins, and Jake Johnson. Blaufuss’s musical aptitude comes in part from his father Greg Blaufuss, who teaches at Guardian Angels School in Chaska. “My father is a fantastic musician,” Blaufuss said. “He started me on guitar and taught me how to sing. He’s still my favorite person to sing with. The first song he taught me was an Irish folk song.” At school, Blaufuss joined the music program. “I played the clarinet from third grade all through high school,” he said. “I taught myself piano. I wanted to be in jazz band, so I started tenor sax, and took lessons. It’s a swingin’ instrument. I played in the jazz band in fi fth and sixth grade. I started the Rockabilly Boys when I was 12 or 13, and we stayed together until I was 16. Then I joined the Naked Folk Frenzy with Seth Evans and Neil Uhlenhake. We recently had a 10-year reunion and played. Seth is a musician in Denver. Neil plays around here.

SCHOOL OF ROCK Blaufuss got his musical talent from his father, but his music business sense comes from years of working and touring with The Johnny Holm Band, a popu la r and wel l-k now n Chaska-based band that tours throughout the Midwest. Blaufuss was in the same class as Holm’s daughter Katie at Chaska High School. “So we knew each other but

I first met him at a Taste of Chaska. I walked up and asked if I could do a song. Then one summer, he had my band come out and open for his band. He really looked out for me and gave me opportunities.” Blaufuss’s mom, Barb Click, remembered that Holm and the band would drive up to the house on a school night, and Holm would yell out the window, “Get your guitar and amp and get in!” “Elliott was only in high school, but they wanted him to play in the band,” Click recalled. “I joined Johnny just before I graduated [high school] ,” Blaufuss said. “I felt like a rock star. I’d play a gig, we’d drive all night, and then the next morning they’d pull the van up in front of high school, let me out, and I’d go to class. “I was really busy working with Johnny. He has some 270 gigs on average, all one-nighters, throughout the Midwest. I called it the College of Johnny. He and the band really took me under their wing. They were all age 45 and older, but I learned how to play and sing with other people, write charts for songs. From Johnny, I learned how to deal with people and club owners, and how to get paid. I learned so much from him.” There’s much more to be a successful working musician than just playing music. “It’s extremely important to know that it’s not just booking a gig, walking in and getting paid,” Blaufuss said. “Things go wrong, you have to make amends. I call Johnny ‘the King of Worth.’ He knows how make people feel important and feel respected. When Johnny shakes your hand, it’s really genuine. People can feel that. The band might be crabby at 5:30 a.m., but Johnny’s in the gas station talking to the guy behind the counter and being sincere.” Blaufuss could have stayed

Getting to know Name: Elliott Blaufuss Age: 25 Occupation: Musician— vocals, keyboards, guitar, saxophone, bass, clarinet, and accordion. Residence: Minneapolis Hometown: Chanhassen Family: Parents Barb Click and Greg Blaufuss of Chanhassen, brother, Spencer 18, and half sister, Monica. Currently in a relationship “with a little lady I’m crazy about.” Education: Chaska High School, class of 2004 Bands: Founded Rockabilly Boys, played with Johnny Holm Band, toured with Kelly Clarkson, Jason Mraz, David Gray, Ingrid Michaelson, played with The Dirty Word Band, Eric Hutchinson Band, Ron Eastin and the Motown Band, and founded Elliott and the Sensitive Fellas. Notable: Touring with the Eric Hutchison’s Band, which received a Gold Record for its album “Sounds Like This,” with hit song “Rock and Roll.” Blaufuss received an honorary Gold Record.

on with the Johnny Holm Band, but after four years, it was time to try something else. “I was musical director and had a lot of responsibility,” Blaufuss said. “But I wanted to pursue my original music. There were some more things in the cities, offers from other people and it was tough to be on road as much as we were. I still miss those guys. But I wanted to pursue other things.” Blaufuss now lives in Minneapolis. “The Twin Cities is the perfect size,” Blaufuss said. “Cats know each other and respect each other and help if they can. We are far enough away to have our own sound and not be competing with other cities. This environment shapes great artists.”

Thinks to know Four things to know about a musician’s life, by Elliott Blaufuss 1. It’s a job. People like to ask “when will I get a job?” 2. You spend a lot more time in a van than you would think 3. The guys turn into your family on the road—they say a band is a dysfunctional family you choose to be in. 4. If you really look hard, you can eat all right at a gas station, meaning you can take a variety of food items found at the convenience store and mix them together creatively, and then use the microwave there to melt it all together. For example, you can make a frito pie: Fritos, Hormel chili, and cheese, and whatever else looks good.

Tips Elliott Bloufuss’s tips to being a working musician: 1. Learn as many styles and take as many different gigs as you can. 2. Do the homework on a new gig, don’t rely on your talent and ears to carry you through. 3. Learn the business side. 4. If there is someone you don’t like in the group, if you have the power, change it. Not your band? Suck it up and be a pro. 5. Surround yourself with players better than you. 6. Be assertive and confident. Go out and GET the gigs YOURSELF. Don’t wait for the phone to ring. 7. Make sure you have a creative outlet that isn’t just paying the bills. 8. Mind the lifestyle.

Carver-Scott Humane Society This sleek, 3-year-old, black female will meet you at the door at the end of a long day. Missy hopes you will brush her, pet her and maybe give her a tu mmy r ub. Playing with interactive toys is the ‘cats meow.’ Missy is quiet plus friendly with those she trusts and avoids with strangers. She hasn’t met dogs or kids but with proper introductions, gets along with some cats. Missy would like a home with you. This abandoned pet is being housed by the Carver-Scott Humane Society and is available for adoption. All pets have been vet checked, wormed, had shots updated, have a micro ID implanted, checked for friendly dispositions and neutered/ spayed, if possible. The donation starts at $165 for cats and $195 for dogs. If you can give it a home, call the Humane Society at (952) 368-3553.

Gunner is a young, energetic English Pointer looking for an active family and a forever home! He has the drive to please and learn commands, plays well with other dogs, and does not seem interested in cats. However, he is easily distracted by other sounds or activity and is not suited for a family with small children. Gunner requires a lot of exercise (did we say energetic?) and needs a home with a fenced yard and room to run – he’d love to be your pacesetter! If you are a runner, this is the dog for you! Gunner’s adoption fee is $275, which includes his general exam, vaccines, neuter, and micro-chip.

PROVERB OF THE MONTH “If you come across your enemy’s ox or donkey wandering off, be sure to take it back to him. (Exodus 23:4).

COMMENTARY

A PLACE TO GATHER

Suburban homelessness a real problem to address BY COREY MAGSTADT

“Foxes have dens and birds have nests, but the Son of Man has no place to lay his head.” Jesus – Matthew 8:20 (NIV) You’ve probably seen lists of oxymorons passed around through e-mail or Facebook. Certain words are just not meant to go together. Act naturally. Found missing. Working vacation. Open secret. Warm winter (except maybe this year). Suburban homeless. But the suburbs are a place of affluence, right? There can’t be a problem with homelessness here can there? Just this week I have had multiple conversations with people desperately trying to fi nd a place to sleep. I could name ha l f a dozen young adults off the top of my head that are temporarily staying with friends or relatives, hoping that a few weeks here and a few weeks there will help them get on their feet. This is a real problem in our community and real people are affected. How do we move forward? Change begins with open eyes. We need to begin to see things as they truly are, not just how we want them to be. Pay attention to the people that you rub shoulders with every day. How does your gas station attendant make enough money to survive? Where does the grocery store stocker live? What are their lives like after they leave their jobs? However, open eyes are not enough. It is easy to see the problems and respond with pointed fingers. It is easy to tell people to get a job. It is easy to list all the reasons why offering help to homeless people isn’t in our best interest. It is easy, if our hearts are hardened to the need around us, to ignore those who are most vulnerable. C h a n g e r e qu i r e s op en hearts. Compassion. Seeing those in need as people instead of problems. Identifying with them instead of isolating them. Perhaps the one good thing to come from our current economic crisis is the new

r e a l i z at ion that virtually everyone is v u l nerable. We all know p e ople who have lost jobs a nd homes t h rough no fault of their Corey own. The Magstadt stigma associated with unemployment, foreclosure and bankruptcy has begun to disappear. Having an open heart allows us to see the best in people despite the difficult circumstances they find themselves in. Yet even open hearts are not enough. Compassion only goes so far. Sympathy doesn’t keep someone warm at night. Change requires open hands. Until we open our hands and release the resources at our disposal, we will not see an end to the problem of homelessness in our community. This needs to happen on a large scale as well as a small scale. On the large scale, more needs to be done to develop low-income housing, temporary shelters, and other kinds of programs that are not currently found in our community. There are great people working on finding long-term solutions. But future programs and facilities do not help those who are struggling now. What could you do to make a difference in the lives of those you come into contact with? We currently have a young man living in a spare room in our basement, and he is just our most recent guest. Do you have a spare bedroom? Could you extend open hands to someone in need of a place to stay? Do you run a business? Could you actively seek to provide a job for families that are in desperate situations? There are many ways you could make a difference. If you can open your eyes and open your heart, you will find opportunities to open your hands. Magstadt is executive director of Launch Ministry.

HAINES  continued from page 1

But the senior attorney in the Civil Division of the Carver County Attorney’s Office soon discovered that, despite never taking up arms in the conflict, he was not without blame. “We’re i n t he oppressor class,” he explained. “We’re benefiting.” Haines learned that Guatemala was overrun with multinational companies angling to make a buck off of the land and the people and his fellow U.S. citizens were among those likely to benefit from it all. He cited bananas – one of Guatemala’s chief exports – as a perfect example where large foreign companies came into the country, acquired large tracts of land for banana production and took advantage of cheap labor (mostly Maya) to work on the massive plantations while simultaneously exerting their influence over the government and the military to keep the laborers from unionizing. “On that trip, I began to see the world and the United States the way most non-U.S. citizens see them,” Haines stated. And though he returned to the relative safety of his suburban home shortly thereafter, Haines could not wait to go back to Guatemala. He was forever changed. Haines took what he had heard from the Guatemalan people and started asking himself the important questions like, “Do I care if people get murdered for cheap bananas?” The answer was a resounding “Yes, I do.” Today, Haines shares the plight of the indigenous people of Guatemala with anyone who is willing to listen. He will speak on Jan. 28 at the “Water, War, and Conflict” conference in St. Paul. The conference is sponsored by World Without Genocide, a human rights organization headquartered at William Mitchell College of Law.

For Haines, coming back home to Minnesota after that fi rst trip to Guatemala was a huge culture shock. “I realized the life we live here is not normal,” he said. “For the vast majority of the world, this is not normal. “It makes me see what’s important differently,” Haines added. “I understand Christianity differently.” And so, for the last two de-

cades, the Eden Prairie resident has tried to educate others, telling the Guatemalans’ story, as well as the stories of other oppressed peoples he has encountered in countries around the world. Haines is also on the board of G Project, a non-profit group working to raise awareness about poverty, injustice, environmental degradation and repression in Guatemala. They are currently in the process of creating a documentary fi lm called “Extraction” that focuses on gold mining operations in the Western Highlands of Guatemala. The film includes interviews with well-known professors like Noam Chomsky, as well as economists, environmentalists, lawyers, authors, former CIA and the local indigenous people. His two sons, Tommy and JT Haines, who have both traveled with him to Guatemala, serve as producer and director on the fi lm project. “This documentary seeks to connect the dots between the exploitation of indigenous populations and the beneficiaries of the exploitation in the U.S. (virtually everyone in the United States that we know),” wrote Haines, in his annual Christmas letter, on behalf of himself and his wife Diane. “Poverty has more to do with congressional acts than anything,” he explained. And Guatemala isn’t alone. Haines sites the same for other countries he has visited like Haiti, Columbia and Honduras. “Poverty there is not accidental, nor is it caused by factors internal to the countries involved,” he stated. “Poverty is the design of a global economic system that keeps some rich and many poor.” The solution, Haines says, is not as much about what money can do as it is about what educating the general public can do. “They don’t need us to build something,” he said, of the people in Guatemala. “They want us to tell their story in the U.S.”

“ We h ave le a r ne d f r om friends in Guatemala, Honduras, Columbia, and Haiti that what they would most appreciate from us is to do what we can to try and change policies in our government that negatively impact them,” he wrote. “It matters who you vote for,” Haines added.

EDUCATION Educating the American public about things like how their bananas can be priced so low is a big task, but Haines is prepared to do whatever he can to help bring light to the subject. “We recognize that we are but a tiny voice in the fight against a global system that is the cause of poverty and death,” he wrote. “Still, we are beneficiaries of this system, and it is our government that is a main driver that keeps the system functioning so we feel some responsibility for changing the system.” “Is it overwhelming? ” he asked. “Yes. Is it discouraging? Yes. But it is also incredibly inspirational in Guatemala.” Haines says he would rather know the truth than not and he’s hedging his bets that there are at least “one or two people” who might care as well – even though it could eventually mean a change in the way we live our lives in the United States. “I’ve told [the Guatemalans], we’re aware that for things to change for you, they have to change for us,” he said. But life has already changed for Haines. “I don’t get quite so tempted to slip back into life here,” he said. Haines will travel back to Guatemala for the 11th time this summer. “I don’t know what will stop us,” he said. “We’ll always go to Guatemala.” For Haines, life is no longer about just what happens in Chaska or Eden Prairie or even Minnesota. “We a re a l l pa r t of one world,” he wrote. “What affects one of us, affects all of us.”

RESPECT THE RIVALRY

Storm sweep in District 112 rivalry Brandon Arnold made a free throw with 7.4 seconds remaining to clinch a victory for the Chanhassen boys

The Chanhassen girls beat Chaska at the free-throw line, converting 31-of-40 shots for the game

BY ERIC KRAUSHAR scores@swpub.com

Brandon Arnold found himself at the free-throw line late in regulation, just like he did exactly a year ago. The nerves racing, the crowd chanting, the palms sweating. T he Ch a n h a ssen senior didn’t let history repeat itself. Arnold sank the back-end of two free throw attempts to lead the Storm to its first victory over rival Chaska in program history in a 53-52 win Saturday. Arnold had a chance to seal a victory on the Storm’s home cour t on Jan. 21, 2 011, but missed, as the Hawks won in overtime 74-71. This time, though, the senior nailed the shot with 7.4 seconds remaining in the contest. Chaska had a chance to win in the fi nal seconds, but Justin Arnold’s baseline jumper rimmed out and the ball was knocked to half-court to preserve the win for the Storm. Arnold is the freshman brother of Brandon. “We knew it would be a bloodbath on defense. We have pride in our school – both teams do. We both wanted to show our fans and our community which one was on top. This time they were. They beat us by one fair-and-square. It was a defensive battle and that’s what we expected,” Chaska senior Ryan Spencer said. Chanhassen senior Cole Otto actually expected a different game – one trending toward the fi rst two Missota contests the Storm competed in. Chanhassen beat Northfield by 44 and Holy Angels by 24. “I think we thought we should win by 10 or 20 points. They fought hard and made things interesting all the way to the end. It was a great game,” Otto said. It was the fi rst win for the Storm in the short five-game series against Chaska. “Losing to them four times, it gets to you. We wanted to beat them bad. It’s been a great year for our school. Football, volleyball, hockey – other sports – it was our turn,” Otto said. Chanhassen led from the start all the way to the fi nish when Spencer hit his third 3-pointer of the half from the top of the arc to tie the game at 52 with 19.5 seconds remaining. After a timeout, Chanhassen’s offensive set found Arnold 1-on-1 on the right wing and an ensuing drive forced the gamewinning free throw. “I’m glad that Brandon got that free throw. It’s a little redemption for him for last year,” Otto said. Kevin Jensen led all scorers with 16 points for the Storm. Jared Lea and Jack Kozlowski each added eight, while Steven Gitzen had six. Kolby Seiffert led the Hawks with 16, while Spencer and Eric West each had 11.

Lauren Shifflett got to the free throw 15 times in a 71-49 loss to Eden Prairie on Jan. 17. Three days later, the Chanhassen junior did it again, converting 13 foul shots to lead the Storm to a 60-53 win over rival Chaska. A s a te a m, Ch a n h assen (13-3) was 31-for-40 from the free-throw line. The Storm struggled during the final 18 minutes of the game against Eden Prairie and at times on Friday, Chanhassen’s half-court offense was nonexistent. They only had 14 field goals for the game with Becca Smith conver ting the lone 3-pointer in the fi rst half. “We’ve been working all week on transporting the basketball and making sure all hands are touching the basketball. Just getting that flow in the offense helps a ton. We still struggled with it, but it will be a continued battle all year. We have so many strong players on our team – so many athletes that can score that our offense will come,” Chanhassen coach Angie Kissock said. Trailing 44-37 with 8:20 to play, the Storm rallied through aggressive play on the offensive end of the court. Tori Shear started the 23-9 run to end the game with two free throws. Then it was Shifflett with two and then two more before Anna Letsche brought the Storm within one point at 46-45. A t h ree -poi nt play from Shifflett gave Chanhassen the lead for good at 48-46 with five minutes left in regulation. “I just think that they just know how to drive and get around people,” said Chaska sophomore post Ellie Thompson on defending the Storm. Of the fi nal 12 points from Chanhassen – 10 came from the foul line plus a steal and a layup from Shiff lett, who scored a game-high 19 points. “As a team when shots aren’t worki ng, we have to work around that. We have to fi nd other ways to score. I think the team realized we had to do something different to win. The team did a great job at the line,” Shifflett said. “Our captains are starting to take on more of a leadership role offensively and vocally on the court, which is nice. You hope that everyone responds from that. We have to get our offense going if we want to be successful,” Kissock said. Chaska, which got 30 combined points from posts Kendall Baab and Thompson, struggled down the stretch in getting the ball inside. At times it was easy for the Hawks in the paint during the fi rst half and early in the second stanza, but when the Storm put a little more pressure on the ball, the entry passes into the paint came to a halt.

Down 23-14 in the waning seconds of the first half, Chaska cut the lead to 31-30. West, who missed his fi rst seven shots of the game, connected on a 3-pointer before halftime and then added a layin after an Isaac Tewes’ layup ended a 7-0 run. A Matthew Knowles put back and Spencer 3-pointer brought the Hawks back within a point at 31-30. For every run the Hawks had, Chanhassen had one, too. A pair of free throws each from Joey Witthus and Jensen made it 45-38 Storm. Minutes later, a cutting bank shot from Joey Stark gave the Storm its biggest lead since the first half at 49-41. Chaska, though, never wavered, scoring five straight points with West and Seiffert netting buckets on back-to-back possessions. A free throw from Tewes made the score 49-46. A fter a Kozlowski layup pushed the lead back to 51-46, Arnold made one-of-two free throws for the six-point lead. Spencer hit a 3-pointer in the corner at 52-49 and after a backcourt violation gave the ball back to the Hawks, Spencer caught a pass, took two dribbles and hit a third 3-pointer from the top of the circle that initially hit the front end of the rim, popped up and in. “I wanted to step up for my team. I was in foul trouble and when I got back onto the court

I wanted to leave it all on the court for my team. I hit two shots there, but we needed one more,” Spencer said. Chaska had one last look with seven seconds remaining. Justin Arnold took the ball down the right sideline and came off a screen, pulling up a 16-footer from the right wing. The ball went into the hoop and came out with the rebound being pushed to center court by Chanhassen’s Jensen. “That’s what we wanted to do there – push the ball up the court and not let their defense get set up. He got a good shot – it was a tough shot but he was open. I think he’ll make it next time,” Spencer said. “I saw Justin take that shot and I was thinking ‘oh no.’ It rims out and Kevin knocked the ball out of there I knew we had it,” Otto added. While the loss stung for the Hawks’ players after the game, Spencer already was thinking ahead to a future date with Chanhassen. “We circled both days when the schedule came out last April. Feb. 17 is the next one. It’s something we look forward to, but right now we have to focus on however many games we have between now and then. Next is Farmington and with two losses already (in conference), we need that one bad,” the Hawks senior said. With the win, Chanhassen is 3-0 in the Missota Conference 11-4 overall. Chaska sits at 1-2 in league play and 7-8 overall.

Chaska’s Kendall Baab (50) scores two points on a turnaround jumper over Chanhassen’s Morgan Frye in a 60-53 loss. Baab led the Hawks with 18 points. “They’re tall, but we’re quick. I think we were playing one-on-one defense and when we started playing more as a team and helping each other out that’s when they had more trouble. If we play defense like that, I think we’re unstoppable,” Shifflett said. The two teams traded leads in the first half as Chaska took an 18-15 lead as Baab netted 10 straight points. At halftime, it was tied at 25 with Shifflett leading the Storm with eight fi rst-half points. Early in the second half it was all Hawks as Page Stanberry and Ellie Knowles converted baskets on the first two possessions for the 29-25 advantage. The lead ballooned to 37-29 on a pair of free throws from Baab, who had a seasonhigh 18 points. “We tried to post up a lot and get the ball inside. You know, get the ball and put it right up,” Thompson said. Chanhassen, though, never let the deficit get into double digits as Smith’s feisty defense turned into four straight points followed by a Tia Wright baseline jumper at 37-35. Smith tied the game at 37 on a fast-break layup, but a 7-0 run by Chaska pushed the lead back to seven. Baab started the run with a put back before Thompson chipped in two free throws and junior co-captain Lauren Sundby connected on a 3-point fresh off the bench. Thompson added 12 points for Chaska (4-11), which included 8-for-10 at the foul line.

The Hawks hit 15-of-20 shots at the free-throw line. “We all get pretty excited for this game. We spend a lot of a time getting motivated for this game because we know it’s a big deal to beat Chan,” Thompson said. “We’re looking forward to the second meeting. We’ll have to work hard in practice.” Besides Shifflett’s 19, Smith had 15 (8-10 at FT line), Shear had nine and Letsche poured in seven second-half points. Kissock said one thing that needs to improve is bench scoring. In the win, only reserve Tia Wright scored with four points. “It’s tough because you think they’ve formed the chemistry and it should be there. But it’ll take a few more games. It’s there; we just have to get our rhythm back. We have the depth – we just have to make sure everyone is getting the ball and getting into the rhythm of the game. One pass isn’t enough,” the coach said. Chanhassen is 4-0 in the Missota Conference. With New Prague’s 65-57 win over Red Wing Friday, the Storm lead the conference over the Trojans and Wingers by a half-game. Ironically, Chanhassen plays those two teams this week. Chaska is now 2-3 in the Missota after starting with two wins. Results from Tuesday’s ga me wit h M i n ne apoli s Roosevelt are available at Scoreboard.MN.

HAWKS ROUNDUP

Girls hockey earns another conference victory Carly Van Orden notched her third shutout of the season, improving to 13-3 in nets for Chaska/Chanhassen in a 2-0 win at Northfield Saturday. The Storm Hawks remain a half-game ahead of Red Wing for fi rst place in the Missota Conference. C/C sits at 9-0-1 with the Wingers at 8-1. C/C hosts New Prague Saturday, while a second date with Red Wing is Jan. 31. Kaitlin Storo did all the damage the Storm Hawks needed in the opening period, scoring on the power play from Emma Silkey and Megan O’Brien. Sheridan Bergo added an insurance goal unassisted early in the second period. C/C outshot the Raiders 39-13 for the game.

GOOD RESULTS DOWN LOW Brenden Olevson rebounded from a 4-1 deficit to pin his op-

ponent, while Ethan Loosbrock scored a 3-0 decision for back-toback wins for a Chaska/Chanhassen lead at 19-12, but Class 2A ninth-ranked Hutchinson/ Buffalo Lake-Hector-Stewart won five of the final seven matches for a 39-25 nonconference dual victory Jan. 19. The Storm Hawks are 7-5 in dual meets this season. N o. 10 - r a n k e d O l e v s o n trailed 4-1 to Chris Schmidt entering the third period, but a reversal that led to a turn and eventually a pin with 55 seconds remaining in the match gave C/C six team points. Ethan Loosbrock broke a scoreless tie in the final minute of his match with Bobby Rasmussen, receiving a point for a stall call on the Hutchinson senior. Loosbrock, ranked No. 6 in Class 3A, added a reversal with nine seconds remaining for the 3-0 win.

Rasmussen, a sixth-year varsity wrestler, has 90 wins for his career. C/C’s 19 -12 lead quick ly evaporated as back-to-back falls from the Tigers at 152 and 160 pounds gave Hutch/BLHS the lead 24-19. Josh Blackowiak got the Storm Hawks back within two team points with a late nearfall for a 6-3 win over Gannon Jordahl. The Tigers got pins at 182, 195 and 220 pounds for the 39-22 lead. Reid Johnson gutted out a decision victory at heavyweight for C/C. The Storm Hawks had an early lead as Isaac Loosbrock won by pin and Joel Larson added a 16-7 major decision win at 120 pounds. Hutch/BLHS took its first lead as No. 2 Eric Madson topped Trent Butcher 7- before Luke Pundsack rallied for a 7-3 victory over C/C’s Sam Vance.

The 12-10 lead for the Tigers didn’t last long as Olevson countered a three-point deficit for the six-point team win.

HIGH SCORE NOT ENOUGH The Chaska/Chanhassen gymnastics team had its secondhighest score of the season Jan. 17 at home, but it wasn’t enough to beat Farmington in a 135.575-135.05 Missota event. “The whole team did very well and we are excited to see where the next couple of meets land us,” Storm Hawks coach Jaime Tsurusaki said. C/C was coming off a second loss in four days to Class A No. 2-ranked New Prague on Friday. The Trojans won 142.775-133.90 in their home gym. A lex Dragos had the top scores on beam and bars with marks of 8.95 and 9.05, respectively. Leah Kutsch barely beat out Rachel Nornes on floor for

top scorer with a score of 9.075 (Nornes 9.05). Kutsch was also the top vault scorer with a 9.0. The Storm Hawks also competed in a triang ular with Eastview and Apple Valley on Saturday. “We did not have our best meet by any means, but we managed to pull off our highest team score of a 136.6. We had a lot of girls trying new skills into their routines for the fi rst time. We got our highest floor and bar scores of the season with a 34.14 on bars and a 35.75 on floor,” Tsurusaki said.

ANOTHER STATE PREVIEW It was another mini state meet for the Chaska dance team and the Hawks passed with flying colors. Chaska won both the jazz/ funk and high kick competitions at the Totino-Grace Invitational Saturday in Shoreview.

The Hawks had an average judge score of 87 in high kick to beat Sartell-St. Stephen for the first time this season. SSP (84.5 points), Totino-Grace (81), Benilde-St. Margaret (81) and Simley rounded out the top five. In jazz, Chaska had an average judge score of 86. Followed in the standings were TotinoGrace (82), B-SM (81), SSP and Mound-Westonka. “What a tough competition. We had a great day all around as JV kick and jazz placed fi rst (as well),” Chaska coach Kris Rydland said. A planned off week changed when Chaska was invited to a 10-team showcase at Eastview Invitational on Saturday. Team scores will not be published. “We were talking about how it would be nice to have one more meet to help us prepare for sections and we got our wish,” Rydland said.

COMPETITIVE DANCE

Opportunities for dancers fewer and far between post-high school BY ERIC KRAUSHAR scores@swpub.com

Life after high school for athletes in sports such as football, basketball and volleyball are numerous in opportunities. But what about sports such as dance? Chaska High School graduate Jillian Bagley is one of the few current members of a collegiate dance team from a Hawks program that has produced a number of top fi nishes at the state meet over the past five years. Bagley, a sophomore at the University of St. Thomas, was one of seven new members out of more than 100 trying out that were selected for the squad in the spring of 2010. “I was very scared. The fi rst day of tryouts we were in a huge gym with a hundred-some girls dancing for what we thought was five spots. We had to learn some combinations and then we had to learn both the jazz and hip hop dances. There were three cuts and the people left after that had a fi nal addition where we interviewed with the coaches and we performed in groups of three in front of a panel of judges. It was pretty intense,” Bagley said. Christina Hamari, a 2009 Chaska High School graduate, had similar odds trying out for the University of Minnesota dance team two years ago. “I really prepared myself for the whole process. I knew it was going to be tough. Tryouts were a four-day process. I just knew I had to try my best and not worry about the other dancers. I knew they were all good or they wouldn’t have been there,” said Hamari, who estimated there were 70 dancers with 17 making the squad. “After four tough days of tryouts, it was really satisfying to make the team.”

DOING SOMETHING SHE LOVES For Bagley, there was no doubt in her mind she wanted to continue to dance after graduating from Chaska in 2010. Where, though, was the question? She decided on the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul – a perennial national entrant in the Open Division – a

Hamari also has coached the District 112 middle school dance the past two seasons, drawing off her experiences as a staff member for the Just For Kix summer camps. “I’m used to working with elementary kids with my major, but it’s my fi rst time with middle school kids. It’s fun to pass on the things I’ve learned. It’s a cool feeling to watch the girls grow and keep coming back and staying with the sport. It reminds me of myself when I was this age,” she said.

Pictured are Bagley, and her teammates Elise Kissel and Sam Maroney. decision that had to be made before the fi nal months of her high school time. “Tryouts were in May, so I had to know before then my senior year of high school was over. I didn’t make my decision on a school because of dance, but it did help that St. Thomas had a really good dance team. Dance has been a part of my life since I was three, so I knew I wanted to keep doing it,” Bagley said. St. Thomas won the UDA National College Dance Team championship in hip hop and took second place in jazz last January. This month, Bagley helped the Tommies Dance Team win the jazz national title and also place second in hip hop. St. Thomas owns four national titles in the past five seasons in the Open Division. “Defi nitely going down to Orlando, we felt a lot of pressure. It really feels like the Bring It On movie because there’s dance and cheer competitions going on,” said Bagley. To win a national title, the St. Thomas Dance Team has to put in an enormous amount of work. Bagley fi gures most weeks the squad only gets one day off from practice.

BOYS SWIM/DIVE

“It’s pretty similar to high school. I felt like we were a family and I didn’t think it would be like that with the college team, but it is. We work just as hard. We put in a lot of time,” she said. H av i n g c o mpl e t e d h e r second season with the St. Thomas dance team, Bagley hasn’t decided if she’ll be able to continue with the squad next season. Biology major, her classroom and lab time will only increase the next two years. “We only had one senior this year, but not everybody comes back each year. It gets really hard to keep up with school and dance sometimes. I think about it a lot. Whether I’ll be able to keep doing it. It’s hard to think about because it’s something I’ve done my whole life,” said Bagley, who will have to decide soon as tryouts for next year’s team are in April.

GIVING BACK TO 112 Hamari spent one season as a member of the University of Minnesota’s Division I national championship dance team. The Gophers won both the hip hop and jazz national titles in 2010. Along with local, regional

and national competitions, the U of M squad performed at football and basketball games. The 2009 Chaska graduate said the biggest difference between the high school team and her college squad was practice time. “We only practiced three days a week, but we’d have three- to three-and-a-half-hour practices. We had to focus hard to get everything done. When we got to performances, we didn’t get nervous because we had practiced so much,” said Hamari, who also said the squad worked on strength training two times a week. “We were in pretty good shape.” T he p a s t t wo s e a s o n s , Hamari, now a junior, has competed on the University of Minnesota Premier Club dance team, helping the squad win the Midwest Open Division in jazz and placing second in hip hop this year. “I wanted to do a lot more volunteering and get more outside experiences for my major. With the club team, there wasn’t the extra performances. I knew that I couldn’t give up on dance. I still wanted to be part of a team. I still got to dance a lot and that meant a lot to me,” Hamari said.

Bagley and Hamari aren’t the only former Chaska dancers still involved in the sport post-high school. Tia Bont, a 2010 graduate, competed for a season with the University of Wisconsin’s club team, the Dance Elite. Now at the University of Minnesota, Bont spent the season with Hamari on the Premier Club team. She is also an assistant junior varsity coach with Chaska after spending a year as an assistant at Lakeville North in the fall of 2010. Ashley Rollins, a 2011 graduate and freshman at Normandale Community College, has danced with the North Dakota Ballet Company, participated in a Just For Kix trip to Joplin, Miss. and is an assistant with the Chaska Dance Team. Sammi Gomez, also a 2011 g raduate, is the prog ram’s fi rst professional dancer. She performs with the downtown Minneapolis dance company Breaking Boundaries. She is a freshman at the University of Minnesota. Other alumni competing are Elizabeth Hanzlik and Caity Mattson at the College of St. Benedict; Amy and Emily Hassenstab at the Gustavus; Meghan Gerber at Minnesota State University-Mankato; Becca Porter and Brittany Ploen at Pepperdine University; and Lindsay Selinger at North Dakota State University. Lauren Fischer and Brooke Erickson also perform for the North Dakota Ballet Company, while Andrea Hammann was formerly on the U of M club team.

Impact on athletes, students felt in a large way Scott Stallman’s favorite movie is the Wizard of Oz. The longtime Chaska High School cross country, track and field and hockey coach, though, used a story from the more current Broadway musical “Wicked.” Former athletes, teaching and coaching colleagues, competing coaches, friends and family and just about anyone who truly understood the impact Stallman had on Chaska High School the past 36 years listened Tuesday during an open house at the Chanhassen Legion. “You all represent every facet of my entire life – my time in coaching and teaching. Every one of you has helped make me who I am. There was a play written and it’s called ‘Wicked’ and it, too, was about the Wizard of Oz. There is a scene where the Wicked Witch and the Good Witch of the North meet up. And they realize they are who they are today because of who they knew. I am who I am because I have known all of you. There is also a part in there where it talks about a handprint on the heart. It really is true. Each of you have left a handprint on my heart. And it truly has been in a running vernacular – a good run,” said Stallman to the crowd. Stallman coached more than 85 teams during his tenure at Chaska, which ended this past fall with the fi nish of the girls cross country season. He was involved in the cross country and track and field programs in every year since 1976. He was a hockey coach from 1975 to 1990 after spending two years prior to that with Robbins dale Cooper High School. “You don’t get started without some help. Bob Madsen started both the cross country and track programs at Chaska High School. He turned them over to me. Mary Daley was the initial girls coach. They took a flier on me and hired me as an assistant and that’s how it got started. I didn’t start the hockey program, but I followed in Dan Daley’s footsteps. That, too, was a huge piece to who I am. You can’t imagine the early days of hockey. Cold feet, outdoor practices, long bus rides. I could chronicle that in a book

itself,” Stallman said. Teaching was also a big part of Stallman’s life. One of his mentors, Merlyn Kinke, was in attendance. “I started as a long-term sub for a half-of-a-year in the woodshop. I truly enjoyed every moment of it. One of our great friends, Roy Butler, went to bat for me. Roy passed away a long time ago in 1980, but he allowed me to take over his shop and then he advocated for me to become a teacher. As I was walking this morning on my morning walk, I started to think about what it means to be a coach and a teacher. I look around the room and everybody has been influenced by a teacher or a coach. They are the most powerful people there are. The influence that teachers and coaches have is amazing,” Stallman said. “A student of mine was doing a senior project and they asked how I got into teaching. I can go back to an influential English teacher in 10th grade and I can say it was a coach. To this day, anybody who knows R. Eugene Wright, better known as Lefty Wright, I will say to this day that it was his influence that got me started. I remarked one day, ‘some day when I grow up I want to be just like Lefty,’” Stallman added. Judging by the open house turnout, Stallman’s impact on athletes and students was enormous. Chanhassen Head Boys Cross Country Coach Andy Powell, a former assistant of Stallman’s, spoke to his impact. “I was very fortunate to be hired as an assistant with Scott Stallman. Scott and I did not know each other before then,

To say he’s been a mentor and a friend and those things, that’s not adequate,” Powell said. “He treats everybody with respect, dignity, patience and kindness. On his worst day, I can only hope it’s something I can be on my best day. He’s a wonderful man.” Stallman also thanked his wife, Kate, for her support through it all “A n y b o d y w h o ’s b e e n around coaching knows the time consumption it takes and the amount of time your away from home. She has understood through it all. I couldn’t have done it without her,” he said. Chaska High School Athletic Director and Assistant Principal Troy Stein opened the evening talking about their relationship. “Scott Stallman was an absolute pleasure to work with. He was a master at communicating and letting people know what’s impor tant and how they stood. In my brief time working with Scott, there was only one person who called who shared a concern. It was a very minor one. I remember how serious he took the issue and how important it was for him to reach out to the parent

and communicate and make su re ever yone wa s on t he same page. Scott took it as the most important thing that he needed to take care of. That’s how he treated everybody. I am so appreciative to have had the opportunity to work with him. We’re going to miss you Scott,” Stein said. Stallman said it is “a difficult time, but at the same time an exciting time.” The creator of the Live-Run-Smile Camp in Chaska as well as a track and field announcer and clinician at the University of Minnesota, Stallman definitely has left his mark in the district and beyond. “ E v e r y b o dy k n ow s t h e scene where Dorothy goes to see the Wizard and there’s a different person on the other side of the screen. I’ve been behind the screen with Scott and I can tell you that no matter if it’s the best athlete in the school with Olympic potential, which he has coached, or an athlete that has no chance or a hope at ever seeing a varsity competition – he’ll treat those two people with the same dignity, humanity and kindness. And it’s an entirely genuine. He is just a wonderful man,” Powell said. As Stallman always says, “It’s a great day to be a Hawk.”

HOLY FAMILY ROUNDUP

Coming off a huge 64-61 win over Hutchinson to take over first place in the Wright County Conference, Waconia couldn’t make it back-to-back big victories in a 55-53 loss at No. 7 Holy Family Catholic High School.

Total 1,239,361.84 Motion carried unanimously. Hemze requested the Board award the bid for the 2012 Carver County official newspaper. He stated four bids were received. He noted the concerns voiced by Mr. Crawford, with the Chaska Herald, that related to the differences in column widths and circulation between the newspapers. Hemze clarified he followed up and he did receive direct quotes for a sample publication which verified that the low bidder was the Waconia Patriot. He recognized the Chaska Herald had higher circulation, was located in the County seat and the Board could take those into consideration but his recommendation was based on the low bid. Dick Crawford stated his newspaper was in their 150th year of serving Chaska and the Herald was frequently recognized by the Minnesota Newspaper Association as one of the best newspapers in the State. He stated they recently made the strategic decision to offer the paper free of charge to Chaska and Carver residents and their circulation has increased. He indicated the County would be getting information to more people and pointed out the difference in column width between the newspapers. Hemze suggested the safe route would be to accept the low bid, however they did have some leeway and the issue would be one newspaper has more circulation than the other. The Board discussed the differences in bids, costs and the circulation. Lynch offered the following Resolution, seconded by Maluchnik, naming the Waconia Patriot as the official 2012 newspaper and awarding the second publication of the financial statement to the Norwood Times, based on the lowest bids submitted: Resolution #03-12 Award of 2012 Newspaper Bids On vote taken, Lynch, Ische voted aye. Degler, Maluchnik, Workman voted nay. Motion failed. Workman offered the following Resolution, seconded by Degler, naming the Chaska Herald as the official 2012 newspaper and awarding the second publication of the financial statement to the Chanhassen Villager, based on cost and circulation numbers: Resolution #04-12 Award of 2012 Newspaper Bids On vote taken, Degler, Maluchnik, Workman voted aye. Lynch, Ische voted nay. Motion carried. Workman moved, Degler seconded, to adjourn as the County Board and convene as the Carver County Regional Rail Authority. Motion carried unanimously. Lynch moved, Maluchnik seconded, to appoint James Ische, as Chair, Gayle Degler as Vice Chair and Randy Maluchnik as the Secretary/Treasurer of the Carver County Regional Rail Authority for 2012. Motion carried unanimously. Degler moved, Lynch seconded, to adjourn as the Carver County Regional Rail Authority. Motion carried unanimously.

Retired teacher pens coming-of-age novel BY UNSIE ZUEGE uzuege@swpub.com

Reviewers have compared the new book “Delicate Armor” to classic coming-of-age novels li ke “True Grit,” and “To Kill a Mockingbird.” That’s heady praise for first time author Connie Claire Szarke of Mound. Before emConnie Claire barking on a Szarke w riti ng c areer, Szarke taught French at Chaska High School for 30 years, retiring in 2001. “I loved teaching French, one of the most beautiful languages in the world,” Szarke wrote by e-mail, “and very much enjoyed working with senior high school students, many of whom participated in our France travel/study programs. I have been in France many times and feel as comfortable there as in my own country. While I am primarily of Scandinavian heritage, a little part of me is French. Szarke describes her book as a coming-of-age story and family saga. Set in the Upper Midwest, 1952-1991, “Delicate Armor” is the story of “Callie Lindstrom, a feisty girl who shares a special bond with her father. Without a son, Will Lindstrom places his energy in young Callie, teaching her his love for the outdoors and accepting her into the world of men. “Delicate Armor” initially began eight years ago as a series of short stories. “After a while, I realized that I had enough to create a book of linked stories,” Szarke explained. “Then it became a novel. Robert Lacy, my first writing teacher at the Loft Literary Center in Minneapolis, suggested giving myself 10 years to complete this ‘Bildungsroman,’ a coming-of-age story and family saga. At the heart

of the novel is this wonderful father/daughter relationship. “Many of my shorter pieces and some poetry have won or placed in competitions and were published in magazines and anthologies,” Szarke said, “including Lake Country Journal Magazine, The Talking Stick, Dust & Fire, Stories Teachers Tell, Minnesota Connections, Brainerd Writers’ Alliance Contest, and the 2010 Creekside Community Center Poetry Competition. I also wrote a couple of pieces for “The Cub of the Golden Lion: Passes in Review,” an anthology for the Veterans of the 106th Infantry Division who survived the Battle of the Bulge.” Q: Did you realize what you were getting yourself into? Why did it take eight years? A: Not at first. And there were times when I felt like quitting, especially during those early years when I was not only learning the craft of writing and how to take criticism (mostly constructive), but how to operate a computer for research and word processing. Q: How much of the book is fiction and how much of it incorporates a younger Connie and an adult Connie? A: Like most novelists and short story writers, I began with the familiar, with what I had known and experienced as a youngster and as an adult.

metaphors and character behavior that begin to surface, to working through the dozens of revisions and final edits. I’ve also been fortunate to have worked with excellent teachers, writers, and editors: Bob Lacy, Faith Sullivan, Steve Wilbers, Nancy and Joe Paddock, Brent Spencer and Ann Woodbeck, to name a few. Before, during, and after reading “Delicate Armor,” I suggest that you listen to “O Mio Babbino Caro,” a beautiful aria from Puccini’s opera, Gianni Schicchi. Music figures into this novel, especially that key tune. I’m currently attending to my second book with the working title “The Story of Amer.”
