INDEPENDENT Drivers escape crushing burden of fines Program lets people get licenses back as they pay off delinquent fines Returning to the road can be a costly cycle for drivers who get cited for driving with suspended or revoked licenses.

If they accumulate fines they can’t pay, they might choose to drive anyway to keep a job or pick up their children. If they get caught by police, they accumulate more fines

and lessen their ability to pay. Meanwhile, governments looking to collect on the fines sometimes never see the money. In Scott County and in several cities including

Jordan, a private, for-profit company called Diversion Solutions has been asked to step in to make sure all the parties settle up. Drivers who are accepted into the Driving Diversion

Districts staying put may help cooperative get out of statutory operating debt

With $604,000, city can connect ‘trail to nowhere’ BY MATHIAS BADEN editor@jordannews.com

With another $ 604,000, the city of Jordan can connect up its trail to nowhere. A $100,000 state grant will go toward completing a longawaited, piecemealed trail project extending from Aberdeen Avenue to Highway 21, following Old Highway 169 (aka County Road 66). This month, City Administrator Ed Shukle touted Senior City Planner Joe Janish’s work on the grant, the award of which was announced in a letter last month from Courtland Nelson, director of the parks and trails division of the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR).

Define debt The Minnesota Department of Education defines SOD as the following: Districts and charter schools exceed their expenditure limitations when their net unreserved general fund operating fund balance (NUGFB) at year end (June 30) is a negative amount that exceeds 2.5 percent of their unreserved/ undesignated operating expenditures. Units that exceed this operating debt limitation are in statutory operating debt (SOD).

Dramatic cuts, a building sale and district user fees could be on the horizon for a local educational cooperative that’s running $1 million in the red. The Carver-Scott Educational Cooperative is in statutory operating debt (SOD), a serious budget situation that could force member districts, including Jordan, to make changes or even help pay. “We’re not just in statutory operating debt. We’re hunkered down,” Executive Director Darren Kermes said.

Jordan Adrenaline Dance Team performs a high kick routine during halftime at a recent basketball game. “It’s a lot different than any other sport,” said Coach Katie Herrmann, a former member of Belle Plaine’s Explosion dance team. “Unlike basketball or other team sports, everybody does the same thing.” In its first year of existence, the dance team has two of its three competitions remaining on its schedule and more halftime shows on the docket. Members of the dance team are: seniors Kallie Trutnau and Rilee Cole; juniors Sierra Degree, Allison Mediger, Emily Soeffker, Emily Schmitz, Ashleyn Moriarty and Lizzie Hagen; sophomores Hannah Hofstad and Mandy Krautkremer; and freshmen Crista Lambrecht, Megan Kelly, Merada Greeson, Ashley Koenig, Kaelie Bronk, Selena Rios and Abbie Lewis.

Streetlight topples onto parked vehicle BY DAVID SCHUELLER dschueller@swpub.com

Soundly constructed fiberglass lamp poles do not generally fall down without cause. So why did a lamp pole fall on a parked vehicle in the 300 block of S. Broadway St. on Dec. 26 during high winds? T h e a n s we r i nvolve s more than weather. Jordan Public Works Director Dave Bendzick said someone likely hit the pole before it fell. “They don’t fall over unless someone hits them,” Bendzick said. There looked to be prior damage to the pole, he said. It’s a rare to have poles fall in the fi rst place, he said, and also rare that a person who hits a pole decides to report the damage.

Strike one: likely a vehicle. Strike two: high wind. And, strike three meant a fallen pole and damage to a parked sports-utility vehicle on Dec. 26. “Then they would have to pay $2,500 to fi x the light pole. That’s why they don’t call,” Bendzick said. Luckily, nobody was injured when it fell. The Jordan

bought the building, which has entrances onto both Water and First streets, and proposed at least two businesses, including indoor auto sales. He runs an auto brokerage. Shayne Wolf, spokesman for the owner, said the business is an auto concierge service that fi nds cars for customers at an agreed-upon markup. There is no guarantee that vehicles will or will not be on the property at any given time. Ewals, who sits on the planning commission that gave a favorable recommendation to allowing the use downtown, shamed the council for allowing â&#x20AC;&#x153;businesses that donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t add any value to our downtown.â&#x20AC;? During the council meeting last month, the council did not talk about making indoor auto sales a conditional use, instead of an allowed use. Ordinance amendments generally go into effect after legal publication.

Filling the former Wolf Cabinets shop contributes to â&#x20AC;&#x153;killing our downtown,â&#x20AC;? Mayor Pete Ewals said during a recent Jordan City Council meeting. Last month, the council favored allowing indoor auto sales to occur in the building, which has been empty for a year and but also a history as a used car lot. The vote on a zoning ordinance amendment was 5-2, with Ewals and Councilmember Thom Boncher dissenting. The move effectively reinstated the use as allowed in the downtown area. Ewals contends that cars will merely be stored, not sold, there. One of up to three businesses proposed for the former cabinet shop, car dealership and grocery store would be a car-buying concierge, said Shakopeeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Shayne Wolf, son of building owner ElRoy Wolf.

In early December, Boncher asked for information about making a conditional-use permit a requirement for auto brokers wanting to locate downtown. â&#x20AC;&#x153;While a conditional use would allow the city stricter review,â&#x20AC;? Jordan Senior City Planner Joe Janish wrote in a memorandum to the council, it also creates an extra step that potential businesses would have to go through. ... In permitting a new conditional use or the alteration of an existing conditional use, the city may impose ... conditions considered necessary or appropriate to protect the best interests of the surrounding area or the community as a whole.â&#x20AC;? At the next meeting, Ewals said: â&#x20AC;&#x153;It just does not fit downtown. It doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t generate any business downtown. It doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t generate any foot traffic. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re turning our downtown into a storage facility.â&#x20AC;? El Roy Wol f of Shakopee

Sign management City council OKs doubling sign-replacement expenses

Jordan Public Works Director Dave Bendzick said that when faced with increased spending on signs, many city councils react in similar fashion to the Jordan City Council – feeling, in Mayor Pete Ewals’ words, “stuck.” Those cities tend to see savings in making their own signs. Jordan could buy signmaking equipment, Bendzick said. Councilmember Joe Thill said maybe the Scott County Association for Leadership and Efficiency (SCALE) could collaborate on buying such equipment. Bendzick said Scott County already has it. Shakopee, Prior Lake and Savage probably do, too, Jordan Finance Director Tom Nikunen said. Compiled by Mathias Baden

Washington County attorney finds commissioner didn’t break the law Wagner sat in on interrogation of his sister-in-law BY SHANNON FIECKE sfiecke@swpub.com

Several weeks before Commissioner Joe Wagner moved to fi re Scott County Administrator Gary Shelton, the Scott County attorney and sheriff asked Washi ng ton Cou nt y to consider whether Wagner broke any laws by his involvement with a witness in a childinjury investigation. The Washing ton County Attorney’s Office recently declined to charge Wagner following an investigation. Wagner said he believes the investigation was politically motivated by County Attorney Pat Ciliberto and Sheriff Kevin Studnicka, but said his attempt to terminate Shelton is completely unrelated, although he is unhappy with how Shelton handled the matter. Wagner, who accompanied the witness during an interview by Scott County detectives, was accused of lying to a county human services worker in a separate conversation about whether he knew the woman, who is a daycare provider. The woman is Wagner’s sister-inlaw through marriage. I n September, t he Scot t County Sheriff’s Office began investigating the report of an injured baby, due to allegations that the baby may have been abused while at the woman’s Helena Township day care. The woman reported the injury on Sept. 20 to emergency officials, according to sheriff’s records. As is county practice, a county human services worker called to notify Wagner when the woman’s daycare license was suspended because the daycare is in his commissioner district. According to the investigation by Washington County, the human services worker claims she asked Wagner if he knew the daycare provider prior to providing him with any significant level of information about the incident. The human services worker reported that Wagner told her he was not familiar with the woman. Wagner vehemently denies that he lied to the human service worker. He told the newspaper that their conversation lasted a minute or less and he informed her at the end of their conversation that the daycare provider was his sister-in-law.

READ A LETTER FROM SCOTT COUNTY ATTORNEY AND SHERIFF ON PAGE 4. He said he did not receive any inside information from the human services worker. Wagner said he notified the county administrator prior to accompanying his sister-in-law to the Scott County’s Sheriff’s Office. Although the woman happens to be a relative through ma r riage, Wag ner said he frequently accompanies constituents in their dealings with the county. “People ask me, I just go. I have lived here my entire life; I am 57 years old; I have connections to everybody,” he said. Wagner said he didn’t realize the nature of the interview, though, until he realized they were entering an interrogation room. He would have gladly left, he said, if deputies had asked him to. “W hat do you think, I’m Sherlock Holmes sitting in this room? I’ve got a lot better things to do than sitting in this room, by the way, but she called, she asked me, this is what I do,” Wagner said. Wagner said he talked to Shelton in advance of the interview and Shelton advised him not to say anything. “All of sudden …. I hear, Joe, that wasn’t appropriate for you to be there. You shouldn’t have been there,” Wagner said. Wagner said he only spoke once during the interview, to relay an experience he once had, but he was cut off by deputies. Shelton told the newspaper he advised Wagner to not accompany the woman, but Wagner told him he had already told her he would. Shelton said he believes he responded that Wagner should then “stay out of it,” only being moral support, and not say anything. Five days after this conversation, Wagner said, Shelton handed him a piece of paper suspending any information being given from human services because Wagner accompanied the woman. St ud nicka l ater bec a me aware that Wagner sat in during the questioning by detectives and that Wagner had also spoken to the human services worker. Studnicka said he decided to refer the case to Washington County because of the allega-

tion that Wagner was not forthright with the human services caseworker about his relationship to the daycare provider before the employee shared case information with him. If he had known in advance that Wagner planned to accompany the daycare provider at the sheriff’s office, Studnicka said he would have instructed his deputies to ask Wagner to leave. Normally, only attorneys accompany someone who is interviewed as a person of interest, Studnicka said. “If I would have known, I would have told Commissioner Wagner it was inappropriate,” Studnicka said. Sheriff’s staff didn’t make an issue of Wagner being there, Studnicka said, because they were a little intimated that Wagner is a commissioner and also because they didn’t want to offend Wagner. He noted that Wagner did not pressure the deputies to let him be there. Once he became aware that a human services worker was allegedly misled, Studnicka said he was left in an “awkward position,” in that he could look bad for not having the matter explored further, but it could also appear he was going after a commissioner. He said the case was referred to Washington County to avoid a conflict of interest. But Wagner said he believes the investigation was politically motivated because of his earlier role in billboards that went up mocking Studnicka and Ciliberto for seeking raises from the county. Studnicka said if he was politically motivated, his office would have completed the investigation itself and there would have been charges. After an investigation by Washington County detectives, the Washington County Attorney’s Office declined to charge Wagner. Although prosecutor Richard Hodsdon believes Wagner misled the human services worker, he found no evidence Wagner did so to aid his sister-in-law or hinder the criminal investigation. Furthermore, there is no evidence Wag ner gathered any data about the child-injury case that was beyond his lawful authority to obtain it, the Dec. 9 memo said. The child injury, which was reported Sept. 20 to the Sheriff’s Office by the Helena Township daycare provider, is still under investigation. The case has been referred to the Dakota County Sheriff’s Office for review.

the city, “spot changing” $5,000 worth of signs. In 2023 and afterward, the city is slated to spend $10,000 to $15,000 a year on signs. But costs will vary each year, depending on how long the installed signs remain in compliance.

Nearing completion and taking applications.

WHY COMPLY Despite Jordan Mayor Pete Ewals calling the new signmanagement policy a federally unfunded mandate, on Tuesday, Jan. 3, the Jordan City Council unanimously approved the sign management policy. “Failure to adopt a policy could render the city less defendable against claims related to visibility of signs (or) traffic accidents,” Loose wrote. “We’re losing control,” Ewals said. “... We’re stuck.” That’s how life is with topdown government – by passing a sig n-management policy, the city has complied with the proposed changes to the federal “Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices,” which is likely to put into effect minimum standards for retroreflectivity. Previously, the feds required high-intensity signs, Bendzick said. The city’s policy extends more than 11 years into the future, but who knows what the next standard will be or when it’ll be enacted?

GETTING TO THE ROOT OF SENSITIVE TEETH One of the most common concerns we hear from dental patients is, “I have sensitive teeth, what should I do about it?” Some of the causes of sensitive teeth include tooth decay, a cracked tooth, worn tooth enamel, worn fillings, and most commonly, recession of the gums. Gum recession most often occurs from aggressive tooth brushing and occasionally from grinding or clenching of the teeth during sleep or during the day. This can expose the root surface at the gumline, which is more sensitive than the crown of the tooth. The best way to prevent gum recession is to use a soft-bristled toothbrush or electric toothbrush. Both types are designed to be gentle on the gums. Another point to remember is to brush in a circular, gentle motion for a recommended two minutes, rather than the scruband-rush tendency that most Americans have. If the sensitivity persists, an over-the-counter sensitivity toothpaste can be used. If tooth grinding may be the culprit, your dentist may recommend a mouthguard to help protect the teeth from cracks and wear of the enamel. Also, keep in mind that some whitening products can be abrasive in nature and result in sensitivity. Your dentist and dental hygienist can help you decide which products are safe and best for your situation.

With a new $15,000-a-year sign-management policy came mention of an opportunity for saving money.

What’s the goal for a city that will spend roughly $160,000 during the next decade on socalled sign management? “Get max life out of each and every one of your signs,” said City Engineer Tim Loose of Bolton & Menk Inc., the contractor that proposed a new sign management policy passed by the Jordan City Council this month. “… Retr o r e f l e c t iv it y f a d e s w it h time.” Bolton & Menk will conduct an inventory of the city’s signs, in effect: I creating 10 zones in the city; I counting the signs within each zone; I and filing the type and condition of the city’s signs within each zone, in a sign database. T he i nventor y wi l l cost $10,000 and be paid for during the next two years. Plus, each year, from 2012-2022, the city will replace the signs within one zone at a cost Loose estimated to be $15,000 a year.

regard to each new sign, Loose wrote in a memorandum to the council. The expected lifespan of each sign will be calculated and entered i nto t he database. “The expected lifespan, and corresponding predicted date when the sign will reach noncompliance, will be calculated using industry-accepted signaging curves,” Loose wrote. Cartegraph – a computer program used by Shakopee, Prior Lake, St. Peter, Carver County and other municipalities – alerts its users to the signs that are anticipated to reach noncompliance, or “expire,” according to the software. A genera l ly accepted lifespan for a sign is 15 years, so t he city’s new policy is aggressive, but city workers can annually review the predictions for accuracy, Loose wrote. “If the signs are found to be in compliance, the measured values will be used to predict a new date when they will expire and the sign’s information in the database will be updated.” If the signs are noncompliant, they will be replaced.

EDITORIAL

Minnesota needs more teeth in its bullying law Each year, the Jordan Independent covers Jordan Middle School’s annual Courage Retreat, led by Youth Frontiers, a nonprofit organization, which challenges students to be themselves and stand up to bullying in their schools. Kudos to the school for offering the annual program, which is of vital importance these days. Bullying is a major problem in schools across the country, and more and more states are doing something about it. Unfortunately, in Minnesota, reports of bullying and resulting teen suicides occur too often. A study by the Minnesota Departments of Health and Education shows that 13 percent of state sixth-, ninth- and 12th- graders are bullied regularly (once a week or more). This means that more than 100,000 students report being bullied at least once a week. Ef forts to combat it are made more difficult due to the fact that Minnesota has a relatively short, generally worded law that lacks teeth. The Minnesota law just requires school districts to adopt a written policy prohibiting bullying, without specifying standards or reporting requirements. Minnesota Attorney General Lori Swanson has encouraged the Minnesota Legislature to enact a bill to address school bullying that is patterned after one passed in North Dakota earlier this year. “No child should be afraid to go to school because of bullying. While policies and reporting cannot stop all bullying, they can set a strong tone and school culture against it,” said Swanson. According to Swanson, the North Dakota legislation has been given an A++ rating by the national website bullypolice.org. Minnesota’s bullying law has been given a grade of C- by the same website, which is the lowest ranking of any state with the excep-

tion of three states that have no laws, Swanson said. Under North Dakota’s new law, school districts would be required to adopt an anti-bullying policy by Jan. 1, 2013. It requires bullying incidents to be reported and investigated. It will also: I prohibit students from engaging in bullying or in reprisal or retaliation against bullying victims or those who report bullying. I establish procedures for immediate reporting of alleged acts of bullying or bullying-related retaliation. I establish procedures for schools to follow in investigating reports of alleged bullying or retaliation. I establish disciplinary measures applicable to those who engage in bullying or bullying-related retaliation, including graduated consequences for such behavior. I require law enforcement to be notified if an investigation results in a reasonable suspicion that a crime may have occurred. I establish strategies to protect bullying victims. I establish bullying prevention programs for all K-12 students. We’re not sure that Minnesota should adopt North Dakota’s antibullying law, but we agree that this state’s law needs more details and teeth. As Swanson points out, antibullying efforts work. Both the government website stopbullying.gov and the group Fight Crime: Invest In Kids report that school initiatives to prevent and stop bullying can reduce bullying by up to 50 percent.

Merging counties’ 911 dispatch is worth a look Scott County has been in the forefront of fi nding ways to cut costs in the face of severe budget woes, from employees giving up pay hikes to workers being cross-trained to perform multiple jobs. County officials have initiated another cost-saving effort: Scott and Carver counties will explore merging their 911 dispatch offices into a single unit. The latest proposal is laudable and if it can be accomplished, has the potential for big cost savings. Many questions remain and an extensive study will be required to determine if it would work, but it certainly is worth consideration. Scott and Carver counties are geographic neighbors and similar in many ways, with outer-ring suburban cities mixed with large rural areas. A dispatcher housed, say, in Shakopee, could send emergency crews to a home in Carver County’s New Germany as easily as to a home in Belle Plaine or Jordan. The potential for cost savings is enormous, although it’s way too early to determine exactly what it could be. But we can take a cursory look and see some possibilities. “Three to six people on duty, 24/7 – that could be a lot of potential savings,” said Scott County Commissioner Tom Wolf. There are 31 dispatchers employed between the two counties. And there are equipment and technology needs that both counties will have to address not far down the road. Both counties will soon need new phone systems or upgrades, which could cost $300,000. The two counties are also looking at replacing a total of 15 radio consoles, which might cost more than $100,000 each. That number could be reduced with

just one dispatch center. And a bigticket budget bill is looming for Scott County, which will need to replace its antiquated records-management system, which could cost anywhere from $5 million to $8 million, according to county Sheriff Kevin Studnicka. Carver County has a more modern system that could possibly be shared with Scott County. In 2010, the counties of Carver, Sibley, McLeod and Scott completed a $125,000 state-funded consolidation study of their dispatching services. Sibley and McLeod were content with their current situation, Studnicka said, but Carver and Scott thought consolidation was worth a closer look. We agree. Among other issues, the counties must determine which dispatch center would be best to close and how technology would be merged. Two architectural fi rms are developing schematic designs to determine the costs of expansion at either site. Each center is less than 10 years old and has at least some room for expansion. Of course, the issue’s not that simple. It never is. Si m i l a r c on s ol id at ion s h ave worked in some areas, and not in others, for myriad reasons. There would be fewer jobs, though local officials speculate that if a merger happens, it would likely occur with job eliminations through attrition and retirements. There also could be squabbles over who pays for what. And perhaps it just wouldn’t work logistically. But if it did work, there’s no doubt that it would save money. We applaud the counties for agreeing to look into it. T h e S h a k o p e e Va l l e y N e w s originally published this editorial.

Learn the business of farming at these classes We gardeners may curse the skies when a lingering winter punts planting down the calendar, or rejoice when we take that first bite of a ripe tomato. At the end of the day, though, we’ll probably go back to the dinner table whether or not the garden grows anything. Consider the more complicated task of the farmer. Not only does she have to work with nature on a more massive scale, she has to manage the complex business side of the operation. Two series of classes are being offered for farmers, and those who dream of being farmers, on the complexities of managing the business end of farming. Sorry, men, the nearest one is for women only. It’s called Annie’s Project, and covers management training in financial and production record keeping, grain and milk marketing, financial risk management, human resource and time management, retirement, farm transfer and estate planning. The six-week class will start Feb. 7 at the Scott County Extension office at the fairgrounds in St. Lawrence Township, and registration is open. But why for women only? Laura Kieser, University of Minnesota Extension educator, has facilitated the Annie’s Project classes for about four years. “More and more now, we’ve got women who are active partners in ag business, or who are developing their own ag business, so more and more, women need to have these skills,” Kieser said. She also said women get a strong sense of camaraderie from

the class, which is capped at 20 participants, and costs $100. “It’s just kind of a plethora of topics that all fall under farm business management,” Kieser said. In her four years of facilitating the class, Kieser has had lots of different types of people show up – everyone from traditional corn, bean and dairy farmers, to people who didn’t own land but dreamed of becoming farmers. “All of these people all across the spectrum found this course useful,” she said. The Annie’s Project idea was developed by Ruth Hambleton, a University of Illinois Extension educator, based on the experiences of her mother, Annie Fleck. Annie was a city girl who married a dairy farmer and kept the books for the farm. But she lacked the farm management skills to feel confident in helping her husband with management decisions. Eventually, they had to turn over operations to farmers with larger equipment and more resources. More info on the class is available by calling Kieser at (952) 492-5386.

There is also a non-gender specific class offered in early February, but it is not nearly as close to Jordan. Like Annie’s Project, it’s funded through a grant from the United States Department of Agriculture. The daylong class on Feb. 4 in Hutchinson is for specialty crop growers and small farm operators who want to improve their business skills. Attendees can choose from breakout sessions on goal setting, recordkeeping, financing, cash flow and budgets, marketing, interpreting financial data, calculating the cost of production, and business planning. The sessions will be led by experienced growers and farm business management instructors with Minnesota State Colleges and Universities. “Good financial and business management are key to farm prosperity,” said Minnesota Department of Agriculture ag specialist Meg Moynihan in a press release. “Growers who are facing decisions about the size of their operation, what they produce, labor, or marketing will all find value in this seminar.” More info on that $50-perperson class is available at ridgewater.edu/programs/ farmbusinessmanagement or by calling call instructor Steve Zenk at (507) 430-9202. Unlike in the garden, where good produce is pretty much a bonus and makes cooking that much better, it seems that good business management is just as important for the farmer as knowing how to drive a tractor.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

County officials respond to story To the editor: In last week’s edition of the Shakopee Valley News, as well as the edition of other local papers (Jordan Independent, page 2, this week), it was reported that Scott County Commissioner Joe Wagner claims that the Washington County Sheriff’s Office investigation of his conduct, related to a separate law enforcement investigation, was politically motivated by the undersigned sheriff and county attorney, of Scott County. That claim is not based on the facts. While one of the duties of an elected county attorney is to represent the county board, as a whole, concerning county business, an elected county attorney has no duty to remain silent if an individual county board member makes claims not related to his or her elected duties, that are not factual. The facts are as follows: I In September, the Scott County Sheriff’s Office, as well as Scott County Child Protection, were both notified of a reported injury to an infant. A preliminary investigation was commenced. A preliminary investigation was immediately commenced by the

Scott County Sheriff’s Office. I While not in any way directly connected to the infant’s injury, Joe Wagner’s alleged conduct involving misleading a Scott County Human Services employee concerning relevant facts was reported as part of the preliminary investigation. I Joe Wagner is an elected Scott County commissioner in District 1. Because of his status as an elected Scott County official, the Scott County Sheriff’s Office, as well as the Scott County Attorney’s Office, faced an obvious conflict concerning any further investigation, or determination concerning Joe Wagner’s alleged conduct regarding a witness, or witnesses, in the underlying infant injury investigation. I The Washington County Sheriff’s Office, as well as the Washington County Attorney’s Office, accepted the conflict, and agreed to proceed as their respective officers deemed necessary. As part of the Washington County Sheriff’s Office investigation summary, dated December 9, 2011, the following quote is included: “What prompted Scott County to make this referral is the undisputed fact that in questioning by the Human Services’ staff member in which she asked Mr. Wagner if he was familiar with (daycare provider) before

providing him any significant level of information about the incident, Mr. Wagner, according to the Human Services’ employee, stated that he was not familiar with (daycare provider). Subsequent investigation has clearly established that statement is not consistent with the facts. Mr. Wagner and (daycare provider) have been brother- and sister-in-law for about 18 years. Additionally, when (daycare provider) appeared at the Scott County Sheriff’s Office to provide a statement to investigators, Mr. Wagner accompanied her and was identified through the course of investigation as being there at (daycare provider’s) request as a “family member” to provide “moral support,” which is certainly not consistent with two individuals who did not know each other. Due to this misrepresentation, Scott County officials became concerned that violations of various criminal laws may have taken place and sought our assistance.” The above quote, and above-referenced Washington County Sheriff’s Office Investigation Report, dated Dec. 9, 2011, in its entirety, is public information.

Pauly earns Jordan School Board chairwoman seat BY DAVID SCHUELLER dschueller@swpub.com

The secret votes are in. Jordan School Board members picked new officers on Jan. 9. The new chairwoman is Deb Pauly.

Pauly, who’s also a member of the Minnesota School Boards Association Board of Directors, said she hadn’t discussed the idea of being chairwoman, but was nominated at the meeting by former Chairman Dan Buresh.

Resolutions abound; be smart about goals With the start of a new year, comes the time that many people set their goals or resolutions for the coming year. For me, it’s usually to lose weight, finish a book I have started, and write better Jordan Independent columns. No matter what the goal, keeping a New Year’s resolution takes planning and discipline. Setting goals or visiting with your children about resolutions may not be such a bad idea. The important thing is that resolutions need to be smart – or rather, SMAART, which stands for specific, measurable, attainable, action-oriented, results-oriented, and time-phased. So, for students, what should New Year’s resolutions, or goals, look like? Here are some examples to get you started. New Year’s resolutions for elementary school students:  I will read 20-30 minutes each night from a book that I am interested in;  I will dedicate from 3:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. to

complete my homework each day;  I will pick up my room on Tuesday and Thursday nights before I go to bed;  I will help my family by checking to see if the dishwasher needs to be unloaded or loaded each day. This year, the theme at Jordan Elementary School is “believe.” The key to following through with New Year’s resolutions is to believe in yourself and those around you. Good luck in the upcoming months! Stacy DeCorsey is the principal of Jordan Elementary School. She can be reached at sdecorsey@ jordan.k12.mn.us.

“That was a total surprise, and I was honored,” Pauly said. P au ly i n Ja nu a r y 2 0 1 1 turned down a chance to be chairwoman. This week, she said her spot will be ending on another board that takes a lot of time.

DEBT  continued from page 1

The debt, caused by billing errors made during a number of years, came to light in the past couple years, and puts more pressure on executing a planned merger between the Minnesota River Valley Special Education Cooperative (MRVSEC), based in Jordan, and Carver-Scott, largely based in Chaska. Kermes, who last year became the top administrator for both cooperatives, said billing mistakes dealing with special education teachers with dual licensure, as well as claiming revenue from a social worker contract shared with the Chaska school district, were two main reasons for the debt. “It was a series of reimbursement claims that were not allowable for several years, that were corrected,” Kermes said. T he SOD st at u s wa s a nnounced in Jordan on Monday, Jan. 9, by School Board Chairwoman Deb Pauly, who represents Jordan on the CarverScott board. “It will greatly impact Carver-Scott and our relationship with them,” said Pauly, adding that buildings and sta f fing could also be affected. Kermes compared the mistakes, which he inherited when he started as executive director, to a knotted string of Christmas lights. The billing in question for special education costs totaled about

New board members Caroline Carritt and Lauren Pedersen also sat on the board for their fi rst meeting Jan. 9. “I’m excited about the two new board members that will come with new viewpoints,” Pauly said. $2.2 million. And billing for the social worker contract was about $1.6 million, Kermes said. “The problem was CarverScott submitted 100 percent of the costs,” he said. Said Pau ly: “As a resu lt, Carver-Scott is in big SOD.”

WHAT’S NEXT Carver-Scott has a total budget of about $16 million, and in recent years saw its fund balances gradually sink toward the negative, not counting the billing errors. The cooperative might be hanging on for dear life to its nine member districts as it develops plans to get out of debt in 18 to 24 months. “I don’t think we can make it if we lose so much as one small district during these 18 months,” Kermes said. When a district is in SOD, the state must approve a plan to get the district out of debt. So what’s in the 18-month plan, according to Kermes? Districts could pay a membership fee that they didn’t pay in the past. Carver-Scott could look at selling a Chaska building appraised at $1.5 million. There will be dramatic cuts –to the tune of $500,000, Kermes said – to administration. And the planned merger with MRVSEC would reduce core costs. “There will be costs involved to our district,” Pauly said. Kermes said he’s optimistic that within 18 to 24 months they can put in place a plan that will get Carver-Scott out of debt.

She thanked Buresh for his work as chairman. “That is a thankless job,” she said. Other board officers were also chosen. Bob Vollbrecht will serve as vice chairman, Sandy Burke clerk, and Joe

Benko treasurer. Board members voted by anonymous votes on paper at the board meeting, and would not disclose who they voted for when asked after the meeting. However, Pauly received five of seven votes.

“We just have to get our costs under control,” he said. Rumors in recent days have led to some talk of districts pulling out of Carver-Scott, but according to Kermes, they were unfounded. However, several of the districts were trying to start their own area learning centers, which is one of several roles played by Carver-Scott. Kermes said the 18-month plan hinges on the support of member districts to hang in there and not leave the cooperative. After that, they could stay or leave with less fallout, he said. In all, about 600 students use the cooperative. Kermes said that if a district did leave, “we might as well shut the cooperative down.” The Carver-Scott board will discuss changes to the organization’s structure at its Jan. 24 meeting. Area learning centers – one is located in Lydia – will also be a hot topic. Kermes said on Jan. 9 the Shakopee School Board voted to start its own learning center, and Waconia will be running its own, as well. Near Jordan, Carver-Scott plans to close its learning center in Lydia. The SOD should add some pressure to ongoing moves to merge M RVSEC, under the leadership of Kermes. Still, Kermes said he remains optimistic – the knotted Christmas lights have been taken care of, and the future is about installing new lights, he said. “Trying to untangle the lights is the hardest part,” he said.

Goodbye to eight resigning staffers BY DAVID SCHUELLER dschueller@swpub.com

The Jordan School Board approved eight resignations and two new hires on Jan. 9. Resignations are:  Julia Olstad, a long-term high school biology substitute, accepted a full-time position in another district;  Lori Pieper, Jordan Early Childhood and Family Education (ECFE) Kid’s Company coordinator, accepted another position in town;  Shirley VanGarven will transfer from Kid’s Company to Rainbow Preschool;  Pat Bandy, an elementary school cook, accepted another position;  Jason Geisel, head volleyball coach, is looking to expand his family and possibly attend graduate school;  Travis Paulsen, head cross country coach;  Brian Ohnsorg, 7th- and 8th-grade golf coach, will help a Shakopee musical for a year;  Emily Spillman, middle school Response to Intervention teacher, decided not to return back from leave for personal reasons.

TAX INCREMENT FINANCING

BRIEFS

For businesses that seek city money, initial price goes up

City council votes to reappoint Flynn On a technicality, the Jordan City Council voted to reappoint a newly appointed Jordan Planning Commission member. No shenanigans here, though, Councilmember Joe Thill said after a council meeting last month. Gene Flynn was appointed less than a month before his term on the planning commission would end, on the last day of last year. After reappointment, his term will expire in three years. Here’s just how that happened: I In late November 2011, the council went against the commission’s recommendation, appointing Tom Sand and Jeff Will to long-vacant seats on the commission. I In response, two other planning commissioners, John Levar and John Watkins, resigned. I In early December, the council appointed Flynn to fill one of the recently vacated terms. I Had Levar and Watkins not resigned, their terms on the commission would have expired Dec. 31, 2011. I Thus, Flynn’s fi rst term on the commission lasted only two meetings, ending Dec. 31, 2011. I He was reappointed Dec. 19, with a unanimous vote of the council. Jordan Senior Planner Joe Janish, who was sick on Dec. 5, when Flynn was first appointed, apologized at the mid-December meeting, saying had he been able to attend Dec. 5, he would’ve made the council aware of the term of Flynn’s fi rst appointment. Flynn’s second term expires Dec. 31, 2014. Compiled by Mathias Baden

This year, the city raised initial rates on businesses looking for assistance in moving to town. Applicants for tax increment financing ( T IF ) wi l l initial ly pay $10,000 to get the process started, an increase of $3,500, or 54 percent. Those applying for tax abatement will pay $5,000 for their applications to be processed by city staff. That’s a $2,000, or 67 percent, increase. “We’d like to cover our expenses,” said Jordan City Finance Director Tom Nikunen, noting that the most recent TIF agreement cost $18,000 to process and the most recent tax abatement cost $5,900 to the developer. In mid-December, the Jordan City Council voted to raise fees in 2012. “Once these are paid,” Nikunen wrote in a memorandum about the fi nancing tools, “the city of Jordan then works with its bond counsel and financial advisers. ... All costs are typically billed back to the developers. ... We are getting the starting contribution closer to the actual cost so the developer doesn’t have sticker shock.” “This puts us in the middle of the pack, right?” asked Councilmember Joe Thill, one of two council liaisons to the Jordan Economic Development Authority (EDA). Nikunen said that Jordan’s fees favorably compare to fees in New Prague, Belle Plaine, Henderson, and other nearby cities. The EDA is considering further financial relief for incoming businesses, though, Nikunen told the council. Councilmember Tanya Velishek said the commission, to which she also serves as a council liaison, has three or four discussions about offsetting business costs on upcoming agendas. “The city is looking at options,” Velishek said.

Commission can still recommend members On the same day the Jordan City Council appointed Gene Flynn to the Jordan Planning Commission for the second time in one month, the council also voted down a motion to amend its appointment process. Councilmembers Joe Thill, Thom Boncher, Tanya Velishek and Jeremy Goebel voted against the amendment, which Senior City Planner Joe Janish

said would have made the council the governmental body that interviews applicants, effectively cutting the planning commission out of the equation. Councilmember Mike Shaw made the motion, and Councilmember Sally Schultz and Mayor Pete Ewals voted with him in the 4-3 denial on Dec. 19. Goebel argued that the planning commission best knows its makeup and can offer a recommendation to suit its needs. “I would like to have their input,” Schultz said. She added t hat appoi nt ments to commissions should be a “dual process, where we’re a part of the process and they’re a part of the process. Together, we’re a part of the process.” Thill said the commission appointment process should be the same for all advisory bodies. Thill and Velishek said the council should invite commission chairpeople to attend council meetings after a commission recommends a new member, in order for the council to hear the commission’s views about the strengths and weaknesses of each candidate. Boncher pushed Thill to clarify – and he confi rmed – that he doesn’t want to change the appointment process, that he wants to keep the process as is. “I want to ask one question: Will you quit and resign the first time we overru le? ” Shaw said of the commissioner candidates. “You are advisory.” Leaving the process unchanged allows the commissions “a little more autonomy,” Goebel said. After most of the discussion was complete, Ewals told the council that he’d never been so disappointed. “You guys have butchered this process,” he said about the planning commission appointments. “... If you guys want to do it, then do it.” Compiled by Mathias Baden

Boncher: Council could rid city of commission For the second time in two meetings, Jordan City Councilmember Thom Boncher brought up an outof-the-box suggestion: “Do we need a planning commission?”

Last month, he asserted that he contacted the League of Minnesota Cities and found out that a council conceivably could modify or abolish a planning commission. “I think that’s a bit of a tangent,” Councilmember Jeremy Goebel said. “... That’s a waste of our time.” Goebel argued that the planning commission is necessary. “We are elected, not appointed,” Goebel said, “and there’s a difference between the two.” Compiled by Mathias Baden

City building permit revenue keeps growing A better fi nancial picture keeps improving for the city of Jordan. While the Jordan City Council based its budget on zero new homes being constructed and expected only $10,000 for miscellaneous building permits, it exceeded projections early last year. On the backs of two large commercial permits, the city has exceeded its 2010 building permit revenue forecast by $93,000, according to City Finance Director Tom Nikunen’s December report, which details the city’s budget situation through the end of November. Ten homes had been built in Jordan so far in 2011, according to the fi nance report. Excess funds go toward capital projects, per the council’s fund balance policy. Compiled by Mathias Baden

Utility bills increase by $1.79 a month When Jordan City Finance Director Tom Nikunen explained the city’s 2012 fee increases, he said the highlight of the annual update is the utility fee hike. It’s necessary to increase the utility fees to the tune of $1.79 a month for the average water user, including increases of: I 11 cents a month for stormwater service; I 21 cents a month for water service; I and $1.47 a month for sewer service. Average water users buy 3,000 gallons a month.

Utility funds are enterprise funds that self sustain based on fees, in contrast to the general fund, which largely depends on property taxes. Still, residents are routinely concerned when utility bills increase. “The need is fueled by the slowdown in growth resulting in a large reduction in capital and connection charges,” Nikunen wrote in a memorandum to the city council last month. “The city is forced to increase our monthly user fees to cover our operations and debt load in our utilities. We need to maintain adequate fund balance in three utility funds.” Projections show the utility funds stabilizing within the next five years, Nikunen said. “If the new home starts pick up, any future increase to the monthly user rates can be avoided,” Nikunen wrote, “but right now, conservative budgeting is needed.” Heading into 2012, the council set the fees with a 6-1 vote, with Councilmember Thom Boncher dissenting.

Rice Street bridge design moves forward The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is taking the lead on negotiating with the State Historic Preservation Office in the case of replacing an historic bridge between an historic ballpark and an historic downtown, over an endangered creek in Jordan. City officials would like to move forward with the project, since the Union Pacific Railroad’s deadline for a temporary access to be closed off approaches at the end of this year. “We’re moving forward with design and the overall process,” Jordan City Engineer Tim Loose said. The temporary access from Park Drive to the Mini-Met ballpark is the only way for team buses, beer trucks and garbage trucks to safely access the ballpark. The state has determined that the bridge over Sand Creek is insuffi cient, although engineers have said that it is still safe for pedestrians and cars. Load limits were placed on the bridge several years ago, in the wake of the Interstate 35W collapse. Compiled by Mathias Baden

annual MSA payment for the road.

 continued from page 1

S.M. Hentges & Sons Inc.’s proposed mine north of Holzer Park and Valley Green Mobile Home Park. When, on Jan. 3, the Jordan City Council voted 5-2 for a new version of its map of current and future major roads, it also made funding available for the Rice Street bridge – a project that, with the state’s input, owns an ever-increasing price tag. Councilmembers Mike Shaw and Sally Schultz voted against the update. For cities with populations of more than 5,000, the MSA program offers hundreds of thousands of dollars a year for maintenance and construction of roads that support adjacent highway systems. Cities designate which roads will collect the most traffic, and in turn, they receive state funding for that collector-street system.

ENGINEER’S PITCH Jordan City Engineer Tim Loose fulfi lled the council’s request for options to update the MSA map, which he said is an annual task of the council. He recommended a map that included as collector streets: Mendoza Avenue, Syndicate Street and Valley View Drive; Rice Street south of First Street; a block of Mertens Street north of Highway 282; and stretches of Sunset Drive and Aberdeen Avenue. “Staff agrees the addition of the Creek Lane underpass, the Sunset/Aberdeen loop, and the Rice Street bridge area greatly improves on the current ... system, maximizes need while strategically positioning Jordan for future funding,” Loose wrote in a memorandum to the council.

MONEY FOR A BRIDGE The Minnesota Department of Transportation recently agreed to fund a large portion of a new $1 million bridge to the Mini-Met ballpark, located at the south end of Rice Street. In less than a year, the city plans to replace the bridge. But the state won’t pay for the approaches or enhancements. Any aesthetic features or road improvements are meant to be the city’s share of the cost. However, the state agreed that if Rice Street were put on the MSA map, the city could choose to use a portion of its

LIMITING TRUCKS Some councilmembers said that they see the MSA funding mechanism as a barrier to keeping gravel trucks off of Valley View Drive, because once a road is designated for MSA, funding is avai lable for upgrades to roads on the collector-street system. Scott County and S.M. Hentges negotiators realized that with MSA funding available for Valley View Drive, the city has an obvious way to pay for repairs or reconstruction of the negotiators’ preferred truck route. Last fall, the state, too, signed onto the plan by creating a right-in, right-out access at the intersection of 173rd Street and Highway 169. Since much of the traffic from the gravel pit is expected to head northbound (left) to go to market, the limited access at 173rd Street forces future truck traffic onto Jordan’s stretch of Valley View Drive. “We’re going to be the frontage road for a state and federal highway. ... We don’t have the money for that,” Mayor Pete Ewals said. According to city officials, improving and using the Sand Creek Township portion of Valley View Drive makes more sense, because the township receives a portion of the gravel tax that will be paid by the developer of the proposed mine. The city isn’t ready to upgrade Valley View Drive. It might do so in the next five years, Jordan Public Works Director Dave Bendzick said. City officials believe that the life of the road could be extended if no trucks were allowed on it. Cities can divert truck traffic from local streets, as long as they are not designated for MSA, Loose said. The city engineer added that the road is safe, but an increase in truck traffic there could “send that safety issue over the acceptable limit,” Loose said.

MINE NEGOTIATIONS The council chose a secondary option offered by Loose, accepting several of his proposals but also doing their best to deal with the issues along Valley View Drive. “It’s about negotiating,” Ewals said. “This is a short-term answer,” Councilmember Jeremy Goebel said, supporting the change.

Meet your collector streets Jordan’s updated Municipal State Aid (MSA) map includes changes that free up funding for a soonto-be-replaced Rice Street bridge and eliminate an option to fund repairs on Valley View Drive. Some highlights:  Rice Street was added to the map.  Aberdeen Avenue and Sunset Drive were added.  Valley View Drive was taken off the map, because the Jordan City Council wants to limit potential gravel-truck traffic on the road. The MSA designation allows the state the final say on such a matter, City Engineer Tim Loose said.  Removing Valley View

Drive makes Syndicate Street, rather than Valley View Drive, a collector street of the future. They are located on the east side of County | Road 9, near Holzer Park.  Some roads that don’t exist are listed on the map, including: a north-south connection between Valley View Drive and 195th Street, on the west side of County Road 9; a Creek Lane North underpass of Highway 169, near Lions Park; and an extension of Riverside Lane, south of the Rice Street bridge over Sand Creek, near the Mini-Met ballpark.

Compiled by Mathias Baden “To me, that’s the best solution to the problem,” Ewals said. It’s the city’s “last bastian of control,” Councilmember Joe Thill said. Wit hout t he MSA designation nor a listing on the city’s capital improvement plan (CIP), the city doesn’t have an official plan to fund improvements on the road. Goebel and Thill said they would suggest putting Valley View Drive back on MSA to get state funding, if necessary, but while negotiating with Hentges, the designation needs to disappear. “It’s a one-year play. It’s a one-year trump card,” Thill said.

TRAILS  continued from page 1

Completing a route from Jorda n’s newer neighborhoods to each other and the city’s featured Lagoon Park wil l cost $ 70 4,0 0 0, Shukle said. The city plans to use hou si n g develop er s’ p a st contributions and the park capital fund, as recommended by the Jordan Parks and Recreation Commission, to pay its share for construction of 3/4 mile of 8-foot-wide multiuse trail. T he money comes from the DNR’s 2011 Local Trail Connections Program, which involves lottery proceeds and the Environment and Natural Resources Trust Fund, according to Nelson. “Over 51 applications for trail projects were received with requests totaling over $4 million with only $971,000 to allocate,” Nelson wrote. Shukle said the trail was a project on which the city has been working for some time. “It’s absolutely awesome that we got this,” Mayor Pete Ewals said.

WHERE IT GOES After the developer of Jordan Valley Townhomes paid for a trail along the county road, it was dubbed “the trail to nowhere” by bicycle trail advocates, because it comes to a perplexing dead end. The city’s plans show that the trail will connect Bridle Creek, River Ridge and Stonebridge neighborhoods, which have a trail along Aberdeen Avenue, with the wester n end of the trail near Jordan

SEE IT YOURSELF DOCUMENT OF THE WEEK IS ONLINE The state gave the city of Jordan $100,000 toward a $704,000 trail project.

Read the letter announcing the grant at:

www.jordannews.com Valley Townhomes, which is located at the intersection of Hope Avenue and County Road 66. That trail leads to Jordan Public Schools’ baseball and softball fields, Hope Pond (near Hope Lutheran Church), and Lagoon Park. The eastern, or dead, end of the trail will be extended toward a sidewalk that crosses the Highway 21 bridge over Sand Creek. Near the bridge, the trail will connect to another multiuse trail, Sawmill Trail, which leads to Lagoon Park and under Highway 21 to the Sawmill Woods neighborhood. The area that will be connected by trail had been identified by the city and Scott County as a gap in local trail systems. Completing a circuitous route fulfills residents’ reported wishes for walking and bicycle routes that link up key areas of the city, according to Janish’s application to the state. His proposal drew written letters of support from vocal bicycling advocates Tim Bischke and Guy Beck, as well as Mark Themig of Scott County and Jordan daycare provider Mary Mikonowicz.

STEPS FOR COMPLETION The Jordan City Council approved Janish’s application last March, but the state government shutdown delayed the grant award until late last year. Next, according to the state, the city needs to complete a checklist prior to receiving the grant funds. Janish said the list includes items such as:  receive certification from administrators of public lands crossed or utilized by the proposed trail;  pass a review by the DNR endangered species environmental review coordinator;  provide evidence of compliance with water and wetland regulations;  comply with Minnesota environmental review rules;  get pre-approval of the project from the State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO);  and fi ll out an environmental assessment statement checklist form. “These items have not yet been completed by the city of Jordan,” Janish wrote in an e-mail to the newspaper, “but need to be completed prior to the writing and signing of the grant contract.” Ewa l s credited Ja nish, pointing out that he “did a great job.” Ewals publicly thanked the senior city planner and the rest of the city staff “on behalf of everybody,” he said, although Janish was absent from the Jan. 3 council meeting. “ I s Jo e i n tomor r ow ? ” Councilmember Sally Schultz asked. “We should call him – all of us – and thank him personally.”

BRIEFS

Fink says tyranny reigns in Jordan

Jack’s Bar must pay fine by March 1

Jordan resident Margaret Fink read to the Jordan City Council a Thomas Jefferson quote about tyranny. “There’s tyranny in Jordan,” she added. “You’ve made some very scary decisions, and a lot of us are afraid.” She spoke during the public-comment period of the Jan. 3 council meeting. C ompiled by Mathias Baden

Jack’s Bar and Grill of Jordan must pay $500 civil fi ne prior to March 1, 2012, or risk losing its liquor license. Late last year, after finding that Jack’s was providing adult entertainment without a license, the Jordan City Council issued the fi ne with a 60-day window for payment. Then, on Jan. 3, the council covered its legal tracks by passing a resolution of fi nd-

ings, conclusion and order that is meant to stand up in court, should the issue be contested. “This is within the 60 days,” Councilmember Tanya Velishek warned, “and if they don’t pay the fine within 60 days, it comes back to the council.” C ompiled by Mathias Baden

ourNeighbors GARBAGE CONTRACT

Elite’s new rates, fees kick in BY MATHIAS BADEN editor@jordannews.com

Elite Waste Disposal of Jordan renegotiated and extended its five-year exclusive franchise agreement with its hometown. Residents complained about several of the fees charged, despite the lower rates achieved when a garbage hauler gets the rights to charge every resident in the city. Starting Jan. 1, the new rates started at as low as $10.57 for to $16.65 for weekly garbage pickup, depending on the size of the garbage cart. It’ll cost $3 a bag for anything left outside of the garbage cart, and residents get charged $4.41 a month to have garbage service available to them, whether or not they choose to use it. Elite bills its customers every other month. Last month, the Jordan City Cou nci l approved t he new agreement in a 6-1 vote, with Councilmember Jeremy Goebel dissenting. C it y A d m i n i s t r at or E d Shukle said that Elite offered a business solution to complaints. But Goebel disagreed, saying: “It says that they have to use Elite.” Businesses ought to have the freedom to choose providers, Goebel said, in order for them to take advantage of promotional rates that a ch a n ge i n ga rbage h au ler might provide.

Elite offers to serve all of Jordan’s commercial businesses, as well Amid upsetting renegotiations, Troy Schuette of Elite Waste Disposal offered to serve all of Jordan’s commercial businesses, as well as all of the city’s homeowners. Rates and fees for commercial garbage hauling would be the same as those for picking up residents’ trash from the end of their driveways. “That’s unheard of,” Schuette said, adding that he just wants recent complaints to go away and he’s willing to make his best offer in public. “I will offer that up.” The Jordan City Council didn’t take him up on it, but if it would have cost him money, he would’ve eaten the cost, Schuette said. On Dec. 19, the council passed a new five-year agreement with the local hauler, securing lower prices for city residents. Business owners may choose any garbage hauler for collection of commercially or industrially generated trash. Compiled by Mathias Baden An addition to the agreement said: “In appreciation for the businesses in Jordan, if a city of Jordan business owner chooses to haul their residential trash to their place of business in Jordan, they can be reimbursed for their drive-by fee if they choose to have Elite Waste Disposal haul their commercial waste from their business. Elite will match the current provider’s most recent invoice and deduct the drive-by fee. In this case, Elite Waste Disposal will continue to charge the resident for the drive-by fee but discount their commercial service by the amount of the drive-by.”

G o e b e l d i s a g r e e d w it h creating new fees, which he said will generate more complaints. “That opens up a can of worms,” he said. “If he keeps track of it, it’s OK with me,” Councilmember Mike Shaw said of the new $3 a bag charge. T roy Schuette, owner of Elite, said he’s not trying to get rich on the charge, just trying to encourage neighbors to be friendly with each other and – if they have an extra bag one week – ask a neighbor to put it in their garbage cart. The contract runs through the end of 2016.

A new assessment policy, enacted by the Jordan City Council and put into action by the city staff last year, has helped the city’s utility bill collections process. Jorda n col lected nea rly $ 310,000 in November, an increase, City Finance Director Tom Nikunen told the council last month. Usually, the city collects more than $2 million in water bills from its residents and business owners. Compiled by Mathias Baden

No snow? No problem. Jordan Public Works has plenty of things to do when snow isn’t on the ground. If it’s cold, Public Works employees were going to try to open the skating rink near the Mini-Met ballpark, as well as the hockey rink on the Mill Pond, in mid-December. “The weather is just not per mitting,” P ublic Works Director Dave Bendzick said Dec. 19. Late last month, the Mill Pond ice was covered with 3 or 4 inches of snow but only about 4 inches of ice, Bendzick said. Public Works won’t take a Zamboni onto the ice until after 8 to 10 inches of ice forms, the Public Works director said. As much as he likes warmer weather, Bendzick said, his department needs four or five days without sunshine for the rink to open. The rink melts in 25 - to 30-degree weather, and later this week, 40- and 50-degree days haven’t helped. Bendzick had original ly hoped to have the rinks open on Dec. 17. As long as the snow keeps melting, Public Works will focus on maintenance, tree trimming, cleanup of leaves, wastewater treatment plant facility maintenance, sewer daily operations, taking care of equipment, shop maintenance, water plant and booster station maintenance, other utilities work and water shutoffs, vehicle maintenance, and a little bit of snow removal. If snow leaves a dusting on the roads, Bendzick said, snowplow drivers pay particular attention to bridge decks. Compiled by Mathias Baden

Council clarifies Jack’s-related past In what is becoming typical of the Jordan City Council, city leaders again publicly edited the meeting minutes. On Jan. 3, Councilmember Thom Boncher added to the Dec. 19 minutes a note to the effect of: Kathy Lapic commented on selective enforcement. She was referring to Ballard-Sunder Funeral Home and Jack’s Bar and Grill, but the proposed minutes had only mentioned her question about whether the public could speak about Jack’s later during that meeting. “The comment was aimed at selective enforcement,” Boncher clarified. Mayor Pete Ewals, Councilmember Jeremy Goebel and City Administrator Ed Shukle also discussed the Dec. 19 vote related to fining Jack’s Bar and Grill. Councilmember Tanya Velishek had made a motion to fine the bar $1,000, but the motion was withdrawn. Another motion tagged the bar with a $500 civil penalty. The council unanimously approved the minutes, including changes. Such changes have become far more routine than they had been in the past. Compiled by Mathias Baden

Thom gives council rundown of 2011 “It’s time to reflect on the indiscretions of 2011,” Jordan resident Dick Thom said during the public-comment period of the Jan. 3 Jordan City Council meeting. And he gave his review of the past year: I Thom asked for “the optout” he had previously re quested when alleging that city water meters cause radiationrelated issues. He talked about a lawsuit in another town and asked, “Is that freight train coming down to Jordan?”

Bischke wants concerns addressed Jordan resident Julie Bischke asked the Jordan City Council why concerns are not immediately addressed when citizens bring them up at meetings. P ublic- comment periods are meant for citizens to voice opinions about issues that are not on the meeting agenda. “Is it just so we can vent?” Bischke said. She did not immediately receive an answer to her questions. It is the council’s policy not to address concerns during the meetings. That way, city staff has time to research and accurately answer questions after the meetings are over. Compiled by Mathias Baden

New truck will don snowplow ASAP Jordan’s new snowplow chassis is scheduled to arrive in mid-February, Jordan Public Works Director Dave Bendzick said, and if he’d known it would arrive early, he’d have already ordered the snowplow equipment for the truck. A 1985 truck is expected to be sold or traded in for at least $ 7,50 0, decreasing the cost of the snowplow equipment from almost $100,000 to almost $92,500. This month, the Jordan City Council unanimously approved the purchase of the equipment, which is said to reduce the amount of salt the city uses by 50 percent to 70 percent. “The cities that I’ve been talking to – within a couple years, they retrofit all their trucks” with the salt-reducing equipment, Bendzick said, because it can save money. Jordan will try to sell the old truck at auction on a government surplus website before accepting Crysteel Truck Equipment’s offer to trade it in for $7,500. If it doesn’t sell online for a higher price, the trade-in takes effect, according to the council’s vote. The total cost of the plow truck, figuring in the $7,500 trade-in, is $180,000. Jordan ordered the chassis from Crysteel last November. Compiled by Mathias Baden

Distinctive Destinations Looking for an exotic travel adventure, or at least an uncommon vacation destination? Here are five top picks for 2011 from Stacey Wittig, who writes the travel blog Vagabonding Lulu.

Five hot tipss for cool tripss Story and photos by Stacey Wittig

Tanzania: Safari; Zanzibar: Beach Holiday Experience the wonders of Africa’s wildlife by hot-air balloon. Get an up-close view of wildebeest herds pushing across the Serengeti, zebras zigzagging through endless grasses and elephants bathing in wadis. Go wild on a walking or vehicle safari and then sleep tight in your deluxe safari tent. After witnessing the largest mass movement of mammals on the planet (say that five times), fly to Zanzibar, Tanzania’s “Spice Island” (see photo, page 10). Here on the Indian Ocean’s white sands, cultures have collided for centuries. Stay in exotic Stone Town where Arab harems danced for sultans, Indian spice merchants left splendid architecture and Dr. Livingstone (I presume) began his last journey into the Swahili mainland. Or stay at a beach resort for some of the world’s best scuba diving. www.adventuresinafrica.com.

Drive, then pay up The Driving Diversion program allows participants to set up a monthly payment schedule for some unpaid fines, and drive before paying off the fines. The initial fee is $300 for participants, a portion of which goes to a private company called Diversion Solutions, and $100 of which goes to the Jordan Police Department. Then, fines go to the state or local governments that issued the original citations. Payment plans are interest free, and participants undergo life skills classes, including on money management. Several types of offenses make a person ineligible for the program, including criminal vehicular operation, owing child support without having a payment plan, unpaid judgments, fleeing an officer, fifth-degree felony, theft of a motor vehicle and DWI.  To enroll, call the program at (651) 385-4341.

Jordan Sgt. Brett Empey said the program creates a win-win situation. “It’s good for the county, too, because they’re getting their fines back,” Empey said. Of course, in an ideal world everyone would pay their fines right away, nobody would drive without a valid license, and a private company wouldn’t be asked to intervene.

NEW LAW There was significant work just to allow for such a program.

The following are Scott County District Court felony and gross-misdemeanor dispositions. Defendants either pleaded guilty or were found guilty by the court unless otherwise indicated. Mindy Fawn Ries, 40, Jordan, driving while intoxicated (DWI), a gross-misde-

The Minnesota Legislature passed a bill in 2009 that allowed a third party to administer the program in eligible cities. In June, the Scott County Justice Steering Committee was granted permission from the state commissioner of public safety to start the program. Drivers, to continue in the program, need to keep insurance and payments up to date and not get any more serious citations. “We monitor all that to help the person,” Adkisson said.

The Driving Diversion program, by the numbers:

The program allows people to get their license back so they can get a job or otherwise manage their lives. “We can get you licensed before you pay off the fines and while you’re making payments on a payment plan,” Adkisson said. The program isn’t only aimed at people who run afoul of the law. Governments collect on fines paid through the program. Adkisson said that excluding the initial $300 fee, all of the fine money paid through the program goes to the state first, and then is distributed to other governments depending on where the citations were written. In 2011, participants paid about $1 million to Diversion Solutions. Of that, the state received about $296,000, with cities receiving $600,000, Adkisson said. He also said money can be sent out of state, if that’s where a citation was issued. “That’s money that never would have come back to the community or the county or the state because most of these citations are three to four to five to six years old,” Adkisson said. Scott County is the first county to participate. Cities such as Minneapolis, St. Paul, Duluth, and some suburbs also refer people to the program when they’re cited by police. Jordan Police Chief Bob Malz said the Jordan department gets $100 of its revenue from the initial $300 fee to use toward its Drug Abuse Resistance Education (DARE) program. Malz said the department has given about 15 people information about the program, in only about a month’s time. He said he often sees the issue of people getting caught with unpaid fines. “They have jobs, they have to support their families, and they get in trouble. And they have to drive,” Malz said.

publicsafety POLICE Dec. 29 At 2:33 p.m., an officer responded to the 200 block of Augusta Court for a report of an assault involving two juvenile males. The mother of the victim only wished that the other child be spoken with and advised. The officer spoke with the child’s mother, as the child refused to come to the door. All parties were advised. At 9:21 p.m., an officer stopped a vehicle on Highway 169 for driving southbound in the northbound lanes. The juvenile male driver was issued a citation for wrong-way driving and a juvenile male passenger was issued a citation for underage possession of tobacco. At 11:23 p.m., an officer received a call for a traffic complaint. The caller reported seeing a man stumble to his vehicle while talking to himself.

Page turners: Readers chime in on book recommendations

L

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

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

Barbara Colhapp Chaska

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

Tory Brogan Eden Prairie

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

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

J. Boevers Chanhassen

‘Football Wife: Coming of Age with the NFL as Mrs. Karl Kassulke’ by Jan Thatcher Adams, M.D. I read a lot of books, good, bad, and in-between. “Football Wife: Coming of Age with the NFL a s M r s . K a rl Kassulke,” by Jan Thatcher Adams, M.D., is a good book published i n 2011. This is a memoi r. A l l memoir writing is self-serving. The requirement for memoir is telling the Truth. Emily Dickinson in poem 1129 says: Tell All the Truth but tell its slant Success in Circuit lies She ends her poem with these lines: The Truth must dazzle gradually Or every man be blind Jan Adams told her Truth. Some of her candor may be shocking and disturbing to some readers, but she conveys an understanding and kindness about this time of her life. Reading this book will be an insightful learning experience. The family photos included tell an inclusive story. As a good memoirist should, Dr. Adams puts enough in and leaves enough out of her story. She allows us to read in as well as read out in this well-crafted memoir.

Tom Dubbe, Ph.D. Shakopee

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

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

Barb Tieben Jordan

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Carly Kriesel

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

book to eighth-graders and highschoolers.

Jessie Ireland “Pretty Little Liars,” by Sara

Paige Hall Shepard: I like this book because

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

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

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

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

Phyllis Bofferding Eden Prairie

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

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

Good reading noted

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

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

Michaela Spielberger

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

John Miles Shakopee

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

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

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

Matt Sasse Prior Lake

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

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

The roll continues for Jordan girls Ranked team wins every conference game BY TODD ABELN tabeln@swpub.com

How do you follow up a 57-point victory? How about with a 35-point win and a 28-point win? Well, that’s what the Jordan girls basketball team did. Before the new year started, Jordan defeated Gibbon-Fairfax-Winthrop by 57 points. That Thursday, the Jaguars followed up with a 35-point win against Sibley East. Then, on Tuesday night, Jordan topped Belle Plaine 69-41. “We are playing better as of late,” head coach Greg Dietel said. For the third game in a row, the Jaguars got off to a quick start and never looked back.

Jordan started the game with an 11-0 run and carried that to a 37-18 halftime lead. “I really liked how we started the game and established momentum right away,” Dietel said.

“ T hat is so i mpor t a nt i n big games against good teams like Belle Plaine.” Going into the game, Jordan’s main focus was stopping the Tigers point guard Haley Fogarty, who scored 3 4 i n Bel le Plai ne’s last game. Against Jordan, Fogarty scored 15 points to lead the Tigers, but she wasn’t able to take over the game and have a big impact. The ef for t against Fogar ty is an example of the defense that the Jaguars have played in the three big victories. “What’s been really important is our overall team defense,” Dietel said. “We’ve done a much better job of late.” The past two wins improved the Jaguars’ record to 10-1 and 6-0 in the Minnesota River Conference. In the win against Sibley East, Jordan held the Wolverines to just 17 points in the fi rst half and cruised to the 73-38 win at home.

“We had a very good start,” head Dietel said. “A fast start is nice, but it is even better when the players continued to play hard, play smart and play together to help that lead grow,” Dietel said. Jordan started the game with a 17-2 lead and never looked back, as they built that lead to 45-17 by halftime. “Our defensive pressure forced some turnovers in both full court and half court that led to transition baskets for us,” Dietel said. “It seemed like our players had an extra gear when running the f loor that night, and when they passed the ball ahead, we finished consistently at the basket.” With the game pretty much in hand, Jordan pulled back in the second half but still outscored Sibley East by seven, 28-21. It was a balanced scoring attack for the Jaguars – 11 different players scored in the win.

Maddy Dean led the way with 15 points, followed by Kelsey Chambers’ 14. The win gives the Jaguars a twogame cushion in the Minnesota River Conference standings at 6-0. Three teams, Mayer Lutheran, WatertownMayer and Norwood-Young America are tied for second at 4-2. The Jaguars next three games are against MRC opponents, including games against Watertown-Mayer and Norwood-Young America. That stretch will either give them a big lead in the conference or make the conference race very interesting down the stretch. “We have focused so much on some of the little things offensively and defensively over the past few weeks,” Dietel said. “It has been exciting to see these things carry over to games. We need to continue working on them so we can grow as a team. I credit our players for their willingness to focus on the small details.”

HUBMEN BASKETBALL

Jordan and Mayer get physical Coach encourages players to stay mentally tough BY TODD ABELN tabeln@swpub.com

A fast start fi zzled on the Jordan boys basketball team as they remained winless in the Minnesota River Conference. The Hubmen let a 10-point halftime lead get away from them on Friday, as they lost 63-59 to Mayer Lutheran. “We started out fast and jumped out to an early lead, but we ran out of gas due to a couple of injuries and foul trouble as the game wore on,” head coach Matt Urbanek said. Jordan started fast and scored 38 fi rst-half points and led the Crusaders 38-28. Things went south for the Hubmen in the second hal f, as they only scored 21 points compared to Mayer’s 35.

“Give Mayer Lutheran credit, they made big plays when they needed to,” Urbanek said. “A win sure would have been nice for the morale of our team, but we can be proud of how we played.” Mayer Lutheran is known for their physical play, and the game with Jordan was no different. Both teams played physical. “Our challenge was to match their

intensity and physical play,” Urbanek said. “I felt like we did that. This was one of the most intense and physical games I’ve seen for a while.” That intensity paid off for the Hubmen in the fi rst half, as they played one of their better halves of basketball and built that 10-point lead. Mayer took advantage of their chances in the second half. Jake Anderson led the Hubmen with 21 points. The loss drops Jordan’s record to 4-6 overall and 0-4 in the Minnesota River Conference. The next few weeks could determine what type of season the Hubmen will have. Four of their next fives games are conference games. If they win out they could move up the standings pretty quickly. Their fi fth game in that stretch is against a ranked St. Peter team. “We’re in the midst of a tough stretch in our schedule,” Urbanek said. “We need to stay mentally tough and confident and keep playing hard. If we do, it will make us a better team. That’s the ultimate goal.”

Another title for Scott West Team dominates tourney in Iowa BY TODD ABELN tabeln@swpub.com

Scott West has earned a trifecta of championships for the season. The Panthers traveled to Iowa last weekend and came home with another trophy. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just any trophy â&#x20AC;&#x201C; it was the fi rst-place trophy. That gives the Panthers three championship trophies from three different states. Scott Westâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s trophy case holds a trophy from a Minnesota, a North Dakota tournament and an Iowa tournament. On Saturday, the Panthers traveled to the Cedar Valley portion of Iowa to compete in the Denver-Tripoli Invitational to face some of the best wrestling programs in Iowa. The Panthers dominated the tournament by placing all 14 individuals and getting three champions. Scott West fi nished with 228 points to better the host school, Iowaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Class 2A No. 1-ranked Denver-Tripoli, by 52.5 points. Finishing third was Iowaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Class A No. 1-ranked team Nashua-Plainfield. Prior to the tournament, Scott West made a change to their lineup in an attempt to compete in all 14 weight classes. The move paid off, as Scott West had 14 place winners. The move put senior Lee Vest in the lineup at 182 pounds and moved Jake DeWeese, Mike Riker and Michael Kroells each up a weight class. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We came to the conclusion that there are 14 weight classes. We wanted to put a wrestler in each weight class and we wanted to contest all 14 of them,â&#x20AC;? co-head coach Darren Ripley said. Vest made the move pay off, as he placed fifth at 182 pounds.

Charlie Pesch (top) finished second at 152 pounds in the Denver-Tripoli Invitational. Scott West sent five wrestlers to championship matches and came away with three champions. Senior Luke Betchwars captured the first title, pinning Woodbury Centralâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lane Nichols in the fi nals. Betchwars fi nished the tournament with two pins and a major decision. The next title was won by Gabe Fogarty at 145 pounds. Fogarty dominated the weight class, pinning all three of his opponents, including Woodbury Centralâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jake Mize in the fi nals. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Gabe and Luke both did a really good job of wrestling today and made sure that they put those bonus points on the board,â&#x20AC;? Ripley said. Kroells won the third title for Scott West at heavyweight when he topped Lisbon, Iowaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Tyler Smith 9-0. Smith is ranked second in Iowa. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Michael kind of put an explanation point on the day of wrestling for us,â&#x20AC;? Ripley said.

Reaching the fi nals but fi nishing second for the Panthers was Zach Siegel at 113 pounds and Charlie Pesch at 152 pounds. Siegle fell to Jordan Bremer, an Iowa state champion, 6-3 in the fi nals, while Pesch almost pulled off a huge upset. Pesch defeated Nashua-Plainfieldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Christian Miller 7-6 in the semifinals to advance to the finals against No. 1-ranked Cory Chapin of Denver-Tripoli. Miller is ranked second in Iowa. In the championship match, Pesch trailed 8-4 going into the third period but caught Chapin with an inside leg cradle and put him on his back for a near pin fall. However, Chapin was able to get out of the situation and reverse Pesch and score a pin fall to earn the win. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re really excited about the way that Charlie wrestled in this tournament,â&#x20AC;? Ripley said. Finishing third for the Panthers were David Flynn, Phil-

lip Dvorak, Luke Zilverberg, Andrew Fogarty, Patrick Dvorak and Mike Riker. DeWeese finished fourth, while Nick Dvorak and Vest were fi fth. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We placed all 14 wrestlers in the top five. In a tournament of this caliber, that is not an easy task to do and you certainly have to give Lee Vest a lot of credit for the way he wrestled as he bumped up two to three weight classes.â&#x20AC;?

CONFERENCE WIN Scott West started the weekend with a 67-10 victory against Le Sueur-Henderson at Belle Plaine last Thursday. The Panthers will travel to Arlington tonight to take on Sibley East in Minnesota River Conference action before competing in Anoka on Saturday. At the Anoka Quad, Scott West will face Class 3A No. 9 -r a n ke d P r ior L a ke, No. 12-ranked Anoka and Wisconsinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hudson.

Big 12 Conference honors Chambers Following a pair o f 2 0 - p oi nt games to open Big 12 a c t io n l a s t week, Kansas State guard Brittany Chambers Brittany wa s n a me d Chambers the Phillips 66 Big 12 Player of the Week. This was the 25th time that a Wildcat has earned the weekly Big 12 honor and the third time Chambers has earned the distinction. In K-Stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 71-69 overtime win against No. 8 -ranked Texas A&M on Jan. 4, Chambers recorded a game-high 21 points, on 9-of-18 shooting from the field, while playing all 45 minutes. Chambers tallied 19 of her 21 points in the second half and overtime. In her three career games against the Aggies, Chambers is averaging 24.3 points, which includes her careerhigh effort of 35 in last seasonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s K-State win. At Kansas on Saturday, Chambers carded 23 points, on 7-of-13 shooting including 5-of-7 from beyond the arc. She also added eight rebounds, four assists and a steal in 40 minutes of action. The effort by the junior from Jordan, moved her into 24th in school history for career points with 1,133. Her eight boards improve her career total to 454 and ranks 3 0 th in school history. Chambers is now the 23rd player in school history, and t he si xt h g ua rd, to score 1,000 points and pull in 450 career rebounds. In K-Stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s last five games, Chambers is averaging 19.3 poi nts p er ga me a nd has played every minute in four of those games.

Forecasted temperatures in the 40s across southern Minnesota add yet another reason to be careful if heading out on the ice, according to the Minnesota Depa r tment of Natural Resources (DNR). â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ice thickness guidelines become unreliable once the temp gets above 32 degrees,â&#x20AC;? according to Lt. Cory Palmer, enforcement supervisor for the DNR. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Snowmobiles, ATVs and other vehicles should stay off the ice until temps drop below 32 degrees for at least 24 hours.â&#x20AC;? Even if the ice seems thick enough, temperatu re and other factors such as currents, wind, water chemistry and wildlife can impact the relative safeness of ice. According to Lt. Palmer, last week in Kandiyohi County alone, three ATVs went through the ice. He stresses that there is no such thing as 100 percent safe ice. Lt. Palmer suggests contacting a local bait shop or resort for ice reports on a specific lake and frequently checking ice thickness with an ice auger, ice chisel or even a cordless drill with a long wood auger bit.

Here’s how it works: Jeans Day - a day when employees may dress for work in jeans. In return, the employee pays one dollar, which goes to area non-profit organizations. Jeans Day is a way to raise funds for non-profits and at the same time boost employee morale. We like the idea of people of the Greater Southwest Metro area wearing jeans for area non-profits on the last Friday of each month. For the next year we are proposing the following non-profits: January Big Brothers Big Sisters – Starting something since 1904. At Big Brothers Big Sisters, we’ve been impacting the lives of children for over 100 years. And we’re just getting started.

outhwest Newspapers will promote Jeans Day and all the participating businesses in each of its seven community newspapers every month. We’ll provide you with Jeans Day stickers for your participating employees to wear. We also will give you “table tents” to explain to customers why employees are dressed casually. Southwest Newspapers retains less than 10% of the donations to cover the cost of stickers, mailings and other promotional material. Southwest Newspapers also donates all the ads placed in the paper promoting Jeans Day. In short, this program will cost you nothing. It will boost employee morale. It will pleasantly unite all of the Greater Southwest Metro area for a worthwhile cause, and hopefully will raise lots of money for local non-profits. If you have any questions or suggestions, please contact Jennifer Sorenson at jsorenson@ swpub.com or 952-3456477. Thanks, Jeans Day Committee
