CLASSIC CARS IN THE PARK
Savage couple wins Collector’s Choice award Bill and Janet Millette of Savage were the winners of the Collector’s Choice award for their yellow 1932 Ford Roadster, which was on display during the Classic Cars in the Park event Aug. 12 at Community Park. The car has been dubbed “Jan’s Ride,” and was restored by Janet and Bill 10 years ago while they were both battling cancer. Janet was recovering from lung cancer and Bill was undergoing chemotherapy for lymphoma. Now, they are both in remission and Janet attributes her recovery to working on the car with her husband. “It kept our minds focused on things,” Janet said. “It kept me going.” At the show, the couple also displayed a yellow and black 1927 Dodge Sedan taxi and a blue 1953 Chevy Sedan Delivery. The couple has lived in Savage for 36 years and will be married 45 years in September. “I knew Bill through school, he was a friend of my brother’s,” said Janet. “We went to a party one night and he had a ’62 Corvette convertible, and I thought, ‘Whoa!’” The rest was history and Janet’s love of restoration coupled with Bill’s knowledge make for classic cars worthy of awards. Bill and Janet Millette live off of McColl Drive where they have a large garage that stores their many cars, motorcycles and scooters. The retired couple display their cars in about 20 car shows each year. Right now, Bill is restoring a ‘67 Chevy short-box pickup truck.

City touted as one of the best places to live Money magazine searched for cities with qualities important to American families A new list released this week by Money magazine ranked Savage as one of the best places to live in America. In a list of 100 “terrific small towns … boasting(ing) great job opportunities, top-notch schools, safe streets, economic strength, and more,” Savage ranked number 51. The magazine said that the selected cities “stand out in the qualities American families care about most – great job opportunities, topnotch schools, safe streets, economic strength, nice weather, plenty to do, and more.” Money magazine also cites Savage’s strong growth since the 1996 construction of the Highway 169 Minnesota River bridge, and the fact that the city has retained its small-town feel

while developing modern suburban qualities. Other features credited with contributing to the community’s quality of life include Savage’s affordable housing stock, protected wetlands and 22 parks. “How could you not be pleased with being ranked in the top 100 in the United States,” said City Administrator Barry Stock. “It’s a testament to the services, amenities and people who live in our community.” In 2010, Savage was ranked one of 10 U.S. cities determined to be the Best Affordable Suburbs in their state by Bloomberg BusinessWeek, and was the only city recognized from Minnesota. -Amy Lyon

Lois Lipka held a birthday card she had bought for what would have been her daughter’s 48th birthday Saturday while asking Scott County District Court Judge Jerome Abrams for the maximum sentence for Ruth Anne Maddox’s killer. Charles Anthony “Tony” Maddox Jr. will spend 20 years in prison for his estranged wife’s death. Maddox, 48, who was convicted of second-degree murder in June, was sentenced Wednesday in Scott County District Court to 30 years — 20 in prison and another 10 on supervised release. “You will have the next 20 years. I know where you’re going to be and I
know what you’re going to be thinking about,” Abrams told Maddox after pronouncing the sentence. In court, Maddox’s lawyer, Fred Bruno, said an appeal was imminent. He could not be reached for comment following the sentence. In June, a jury convicted Maddox of murdering Ruth Anne, likely by crushing her neck with a door following an argument in the early morning of Nov. 11, 2008. The Prior Lake woman died of blunt force injuries to her head and neck. Her body was found in the couple’s garage the next day. Maddox claimed self-defense. The couple was in the middle of a divorce at the time of her death. The sentence is seven months shy of the maximum allowed under state sentencing guidelines. The county attorney’s office had asked for an upward departure from

After 32 years, VonBank hangs up fireman’s hat Assistant chief has served Savage since 1979 BY ALEX HALL firstname.lastname@example.org
Since August of 1979, if you were in Savage and needed the assistance of the fire department, it’s a near certainty that you saw Assistant Fire Chief Bruce VonBank on the scene. “Bruce has achieved over 95 percent attendance at all fire calls each one of those years over the past 32 years,” Fire Chief Joel McColl said at the Monday, Aug. 15 city council meeting. “That’s phenomenal to be able to dedicate that amount of time and service to the community. It’s something we
don’t see very often.” Now, after 32 years, VonBank is hanging up his fireman’s hat. VonBank was honored at Monday’s City Council meeting by McColl and Mayor Janet Williams, and in typical, humble VonBank fashion, he wasn’t exactly thrilled about it. “I didn’t want to do it,” VonBank said, “but it was nice. It made me feel proud, especially when I saw all the guys that were there to support me.” The VonBank family is famous in Savage for their dedication to the fire department. VonBank’s father, Verdi, served on the department,
and Bruce VonBank served most of his 32 years alongside brothers Roger and Stan VonBank. And when Bruce retires at the end of the month, Roger’s son, Jake, will be the last VonBank in the department. Even so, it wasn’t family that pulled VonBank into the business. The fire chief at the time, who was the cousin of VonBank’s then-wife, asked him if he would join, partly because VonBank lived only a block from the fire station. “I really hadn’t thought about it much before that, but when he approached me, I thought, ‘Yeah, I’ll give it a try,’” said

with a letter stating they didn’t contain the banned chemicals. Shahin knew about the new state law and didn’t want to sell the product until he could verify that the manufacturer was correct, Aloul said. The customer was a regular, Aloul said, and when Shahin told him he didn’t sell synthetic marijuana any more, the man insisted that Aug. 1 was the last day it could be sold. Shahin was confused about whether aspects of the law started in July or August, Aloul said. “When you are working at the counter, there’s many customers waiting on you,” Aloul said. “I think he gave in, which he shouldn’t have.” Aloul said Tobacco Express had previously agreed to quit displaying synthetic marijuana when approached by police (prior to the state law) and had only been selling it from behind the counter. Shakopee Police Chief Jeff Tate said he went into the store last winter and told the owner about a federal law that banned it (the federal law wouldn’t be enforced by local police, however). “He told me he was going to get rid of what he had,” Tate said. Although the product was removed from the counter, it still was being sold. In the spring, another officer went into the store. Police also made phone calls. Tate said synthetic marijuana is worse than the real stuff, and there is no way he’s aware of to test to see if it’s in someone’s bloodstream.
A month after a new state law was enacted banning the sale of synthetic marijuana, an undercover Shakopee police officer purchased $100 worth of the stuff, according to a criminal complaint filed in Scott County District Court. A manager of Tobacco Express in Shakopee, however, says the store owner was confused about the new law and “tricked” into selling the packages, which weren’t for sale. In court documents, police officer Gary Kern reports that he went into Tobacco Express, 1148 Vierling Drive, on Aug. 1 and asked to purchase some “synthetic marijuana.” Owner Ayman Mohd Shahin, 46, of Savage went to his back office, Kern wrote, and returned with several different fl avors of synthetic marijuana. Kern purchased two 10-gram packages and then told Shahin he was a law enforcement officer, according to court documents. Sh a hi n, who h as b e en charged with a gross misdemeanor, admitted he knew it was illegal to sell synthetic marijuana, according to the criminal complaint. Kahl Aloul, who is managing the store while Shahin is on vacation, said his friend was pressured into selling the packages, which were actually product samples. Aloul said Shahin had received samples of a new product from the product manufacturer

VonBank. “Then after that, I never knew when to leave.” While VonBank is leaving the fire department, he isn’t fully retiring quite yet. He said he hopes to work for the post office, where he’s been employed since 1976, for another five years. But with the extra time afforded to him by leaving the firefighting business behind, VonBank said he looks forward to traveling more, catching up on projects around the house and simply spending more time with family. He also hopes to take up a new hobby. “I’d like to maybe get into some cabinet making,” he said. “I used to do that when I was in high school in the cabinet shop, and I’d like to get back into that.” VonBank also has a son in the Army who’s stationed in Hawaii for the next three years, so he said he hopes to make a couple trips out there in the next few years. While he will be enjoying that extra time, there will also be some things he’ll miss about the firefighter’s lifestyle.

SYNTHETIC POT There has been a surge of visits to emergency rooms across the United States related to the use of synthetic marijuana. The chemical compounds are typically 100 to 800 times more powerful than THC, the active ingredient in marijuana, and there are more than 100 different forms of synthetic marijuana that have been created to date. K2 and Spice are two of the most common forms, and they are sold in gas stations, tobacco shops, head shops and online (although now illegal in Minnesota). They are marketed as incense. The packages contain an organic blend of plant material that has been treated with a chemical that mimics the effect of marijuana on the body. The products are manufactured in China by an unknown manufacturer and shipped to the United States, according to the Southwest Metro Drug Task Force. In September 2010 the National Poison Control Center received over 1,500 calls related to adverse reactions to these drugs. Hennepin County Medical Center has received over 50 cases to its emergency room. “In the last year, we’ve dealt with people we believe were directly impacted by synthetics,” Tate said.

BURNSVILLE-EAGAN-SAVAGE SCHOOL DISTRICT
DON’T STOP BELIEVIN’
District puts mental health professionals in schools BY ALEX HALL firstname.lastname@example.org
Starting this fall, students in the Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School District suffering from mental health issues will have a new tool in addressing their problems: mental health practitioners who set up shop in the schools. Thanks to a new partnership with Richfield-based nonprofit Headway Emotional Health Services, seven full-time mental health professionals will be deployed to the district’s 15 schools. Burnsville High School will have a mental health professional on site full-time, while the other six professionals will bounce around the district’s 14 other schools. “We deal with a wide variety of mental health issues from substance abuse, physical abuse and sexual abuse to schizophrenia, depression and phobias of all different types, all which can have a negative impact on how a student performs in school,” said District 191 Superintendent Randy Clegg, “and if we can successfully start addressing those issues in a positive, proactive way, our hope is that we can diminish or reduce the potential for disruptive behaviors in school.” Headway, formerly The Storefront Group, was founded in 1970 and provides emotional health support to children and their families. They have partnered with other school districts in the past, and they currently work with the Anoka-Hennepin, Bloomington and RosemountApple Valley-Eagan school districts. The nonprofit also runs an adolescent day treatment center for middle and high school age kids whose mental health issues prevent them from attending a traditional school. “We think there’s a huge potential here to have a really positive impact on students and families and just create the conditions that allow students to excel,” Clegg said of the new partnership.
Foundation, has spent more than three years researching the correlation between m e n t a l health issues and academic and so Randy cial success Clegg through the Hennepin County Children’s Menta l Hea lt h Col laborative. The project tracks how six mental health services, including Headway, have affected students through their partnerships with school districts in Hennepin County. Dale said the biggest research fi nding to date from Wilder is that so many students (30-50 students in some districts) who have diagnosable mental health issues haven’t received treatment and likely never would if mental health services weren’t provided in the schools. Dale said some of the barriers keeping children from receiving care outside of school include parents with limited or no access to transportation, parents with multiple jobs who can’t find time to take their children to ap pointments or parents who suffer from mental illness themselves. While much of what the mental health professionals will be doing includes one-onone counseling with students, Dale said they will also be t rai ni ng teachers how to
handle students with mental health problems and speaking to classes of students about mental health, among other things.
FUNDING This new partnership is being funded primarily by the district itself. It did receive a small Dakota County grant, but much of the reason the district could afford it is that it didn’t renew its partnership with 360 Communities, which does outreach to families and focuses on increasing literacy in the home. “That work will still go on in various ways throughout the district,” said Clegg, “but when we were looking at that versus the need for mental health services, we felt the need for mental health services was most important.” 3 6 0 C o m mu n i t i e s h a d asked the dist rict to contribute more money to keep the partnership going, but the district couldn’t afford it. Instead, they decided to reallocate money from that program to fund their partnership with Headway. T he dist rict wi l l cover about half the cost of this new program, approximately $280,000, to fund the mental health professionals and initial evaluations, and Headway will cover the other half. Families with health insurance will have the care billed to their provider, and families without insurance will receive care for free.

HOW IT STARTED Last year, Burnsville High School Principal Dave Helke and a team of administrators began researching why some students struggle to succeed in school. They found that it was often issues outside of school, including depression, addiction and anxiety that were major reasons why some students performed poorly. Then in the fall, the district contacted Headway and asked about the possibility of getting a mental health professional for the high school. The idea to use Headway was generated by someone in the district who had previously worked for the Rosemount-Apple Valley-Eagan school district and saw how successful the group had been. After several meetings over a period of five months, a decision was made to provide mental health professionals at all of the district’s schools. “As (Helke) was sharing his progress with the district’s other principals, we found that there was interest across the table, and that mental health is probably one of the number one issues that schools are dealing with,” said Clegg.

We want your photos and stories Your stories and photos mean a lot to us. So much so, that the Savage Pacer is organizing an ongoing campaign to collect them from you, on a regular basis. We call this our “reader callouts” campaign, because we’re putting a call out to readers, asking you to submit your best pictures and stories. While we have long had an ongoing reader callout – “Send us your news!” – the series of reader callouts we’re focusing on here are for specific stories or photos, such as “What moved you on 9/11?” We’ll start out with two or three reader callouts per month, on timely topics, and as participation grows we’ll publish a new one each week. We’ll promote our reader callout topics in print and online – in the newspaper you’ll often see them on Page 2, and in an advertisement elsewhere in the paper. If you decide to participate – and
we hope you will – you can e-mail your photos or stories to editor@ savagepacer.com. The photo files you send will need to be large ones – 3 MB or larger – so that they reproduce well. Our first reader callout coincides with the 10th anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on America. The 9/11 attacks on New York City and Washington, D.C., were pivotal moments in U.S. history. How did the attacks change your world view, your sense of security … your life? Share your thoughts with Savage Pacer readers; send your essay, no longer than 250 words, to Editor Amy Lyon, editor@savagepacer. com, before noon on Friday, Sept. 2. Be sure to include your name and city of residence. Most essays will be used on savagepacer.com; the best will be published in the Sept. 10 Pacer print edition. For more information, call the editor at (952) 345-6376.
FROM THE NEWSPAPER STAFF
Stop! Citizen’s Arrest! When I think of citizens arresting someone, I think of the antics performed by the group of misfits starring in the Police Academy movies of the ‘80s. Mahoney, Hooks, Tackleberry and Hightower … Cadets tackled burglars, broke up brawls and bravely attempted rescues. They were heroic and hilarious. Blundering and brilliant. But most of all they were passionate about public safety, despite their sometimes questionable methods of showing allegiance. One scene that sticks out for me involves little Hooks running after a criminal and in her high-pitched voice yelling, “Stop! Citizen’s Arrest!” I thought that only happened in the movies, but did you know the citizen’s right to arrest is actually a valid one today? I often joke to my husband (a la Cadet Thompson) that I’m going to citizen’s arrest random individuals for their various crimes: cutting me off on the freeway, violating the noise ordinance at two in the morning and driving too fast through our residential neighborhood. But wait! Someone in Savage actually did it. They followed through on their frustration and conducted a citizen’s arrest. On July 11 at 6:53 p.m., a resident of Ottawa Avenue reported a reckless driver and his unreasonable use of acceleration in a residential neighborhood. The citizen recorded the license plate number and sat down with an officer to fill out the citizen’s arrest form. (There is an actual form.) The police officer contacted the Burnsville individual, who admitted to being in the area, and a citation was mailed to him. That was it. No yelling, chasing or tackling. Just a phone call and a form. It doesn’t happen every day, though. In fact, Savage Police Captain Dave Muelken couldn’t recall the last citizen’s arrest prior to the July incident. I wondered if a citizen’s arrest would be easier to contest in court than if an officer had made the arrest, but Muelken didn’t think so. “It’s still one word against another,” he said, although he pointed out that police officers are potentially better at gauging speed than the average citizen. The citizen’s arrest form is simple, one page. Muelken had to dig a little to find one on his computer, then printed out a copy to refresh his
memory. There are a variety of probable reasons the average Joe doesn’t run out and issue a citizen’s arrest at his every whim. One reason might be that conducting a citizen’s arrest takes being anonymous out of the equation. “Under our constitution, you have the right to face your accuser,” Muelken said, which means that an issue contested in court would likely bring you face to face with the accused. While I probably won’t citizen’s arrest anyone anytime soon, unless I’m particularly peeved, I was intrigued by the possibility. And just as intriguing to me is the Savage Police Department’s upcoming Police Academy taking place Sept. 20 through Nov. 1. The Academy is a seven-week program offering community members a hands-on curriculum and a chance to experience police situations. Class simulations include shoot/no shoot evaluations, crashscene investigations and domesticdispute role playing. The Academy will run Tuesdays from 6:30-10 p.m. at the Savage Police Department. It’s free and limited to 20 participants (or cadets) who are 18 years or older and live or work in Savage. Applications will be accepted through Aug. 30 and interested applicants can apply in person or online at cityofsavage.com. While it would be entertaining to have Cadet Mahoney on hand cracking jokes and Sgt. Jones in the wings making random sound effects, chances are the attendees at Savage’s Police Academy will be better behaved than the misfits from the movies.

Keeping life in balance requires careful planning This summer has flown by and it is hard to believe it is mid-August. My son is resuming school activities with marching band practice at the high school. The State Fair is nearly upon us and Labor Day is right around the corner. In school, I remember an assignment to write about what I did for summer vacation. It has been a few years, but I thought I’d give it a try. I have learned over the years that it is important to take time to get away from work when possible to refresh my energy and to spend valuable time with my friends and family. In June I went on a fishing trip with some high school buddies to Lake Kabetogama near the Minnesota-Canadian border. This was our second trip since hatching the idea at a high school reunion. One friend came from New Jersey, another from San Diego and the others live in Minnesota. The fishing was decent and we had lots of laughs. Our trip, however, was more about catching up on each other’s lives, families and changes since we last got together. We all lead busy lives and realize how important it is to make time to spend with each other. There is nothing as valuable as keeping close friendships alive. We are already planning the next trip. In July our family attended a family reunion at Lake Francis near Elysian, Minn. It is an annual event my wife’s side of the family started after her father died in 1997. The family did not want to connect only on occasions such as weddings and funerals.
FIEBIGER COMMUNITY VOICES
The reunion alternates each year between families and a reunion sign is passed each year to the next host. Since the first reunion, we have had reunions in Iowa, Colorado and Minnesota, and even had relatives from Germany attend. Our son returned from a mission trip to West Virginia on the day of the family reunion. We picked him up and the next morning boarded a 5:25 a.m. flight headed to Albany, N.Y., stopping in Cooperstown for the baseball Hall of Fame Induction ceremony for Bert Blyleven. We made our connection from Atlanta to Albany, rented a car, and drove approximately 70 miles to Cooperstown to arrive in time for the speeches of the three inductees. We had made plans to meet friends from Minnesota who departed earlier and those friends saved seats for us. “Bert” was terrific. We later toured the Hall of Fame and soaked in the baseball history of Cooperstown. From Cooperstown we drove to Niagara Falls, Canada. It was the first international border crossing
for our son. (For those planning to go, make sure you take your sun glasses off and open the rear windows when crossing the border.) Niagara Falls is breathtaking and words are inadequate to describe the scene. The Falls are actually two parts, Horse Shoe Falls on the Canadian side and American Falls on the U.S. side. We also traveled to Toronto and rode a glass elevator to the top of the CN Tower. It features a glass floor to look straight down from over 1,100 feet. Our last adventure took our family and friends on a road trip to Copper Mountain, Colo. We partook in whitewater rafting on the Arkansas River with a guide who taught English as a second language in Paris during the school year. We learned paddling techniques, teamwork, and new terms like “eddy,” which is a pull-off area. The Rocky Mountains are seductive and were still laced with snow in midAugust. Summers aren’t always as adventurous as this year was for us, but spending time with family and friends is important for fostering and nurturing relationships, and keeping life in balance. I saw a sign in a store that read, “A family that plays together stays together.” In our busy lives, remember to plan to play a little, and to spend time with family and friends. You’ll be glad you did.

LETTERS FROM READERS POLITICS
Fresh new leadership needed in state oﬃces
City shows lack of regard for trees, nature
I believe due to the lack of leadership in Saint Paul, more people should challenge Sen. Claire Robling, Rep. Mike Beard and Rep. Mark Buesgens in their GOP primaries and general election next year. I believe this is an opportunity to show these elected officials they failed the people they have served. I encourage people to run against Claire Robling, Mike Beard and Mark Buesgens next year. It is time elect fresh new leadership that will not make the mistakes they did.
My husband and I have lived in Savage since 1969 and time and time again Savage has shown us that it doesn’t care about trees or nature. Planting young trees after tearing down mature trees doesn’t make it! And … Amen to what Barry Peterson wrote last week.

want to grill tonight? What should we have for dessert? We are so blessed to be able to make those decisions, we probably take it for granted. That makes it so important to continue to be aware of the hungry around us and in our world. Let us all remember to continue to give to the food shelves in the area and also to donate money to the African Relief Agency for Horn of Africa to keep some of the poorest people on earth alive. Drought has left thousands starving to death in Somalia and the Horn of Africa. Be happy when you surround your taste buds with something delicious at your next meal or snack and feel good when you give whatever you can to save a life. We all have the opportunity to make a difference today!

Knowing and understanding basic bird and animal behavior is critical to being a successful wildlife photographer. I am not talking about an understanding of complex biological processes; I am talking about the basic stuff. For example, last week I was in the Black Hills of South Dakota photographing with my wife and daughter. Every morning we got up at 5 a.m. and headed out to see what wildlife we could find. The midday temperatures reached well into the â€˜90s every day so there was very little critter movement during the day. I knew any and all wildlife encounters were going to be early in the morning or at the end of the day. That is basic biological behavior. We were driving the wildlife loop road in Custer State Park, and found a nice little valley with a number of trees and a small creek running through it. We parked our RV, and my wife and I gathered up our camera gear and headed out across the prairie into the valley. We were far enough away from the road where we wouldnâ€™t be noticed, but we were close enough to see what was going on where we parked. It was only 5:30 a.m. and the sun was just peeking over the horizon. As we walked into the valley, a large mule deer buck spotted us and stood up. He looked at us for a while, then turned and leaped over a fallen tree and bounded off deeper into the valley. I am sure he was in search of a cool shady spot in anticipation of the coming daysâ€™ heat. We moved into the valley

in hopes of photographing a spotted towhee which is a large sparrow-like bird with a long tail. The towhee was there and we did manage to get a few shots. I also wanted to make some audio recordings of the birdâ€™s song, so I hiked back to the RV where I grabbed my large parabolic dish microphone and recorder. Within 20 minutes I had the recordings I was looking for. Soon after, we spotted a coyote trotting by on the far end of the valley. He didnâ€™t stop so we didnâ€™t get any images, but it was great to see him anyway. Meanwhi le two common nighthawks f lew over head. This was fairly uncommon because these birds usually come out late in the evening. I managed a few nice in-flight images. I could hear a western tanager singing from a tall ponderosa pine tree, so we moved over to see if we could find it. Sure enough, a beautiful male was singing his heart out so I set up my recorder and managed about three minutes of song recordings without any background

A pronghorn buck was on alert in a valley of the Black Hills. noise. I was thrilled. We wanted to get some pictures of this bird but we were looking into the sun. In order to get the sun at our backs we had to cross a tiny stream. While stepping across the stream we saw about six western chorus frogs in the water. This valley was stuffed with all sorts of critters. The tanager cooperated and we got a few nice images. Just then a large pronghorn buck crested the hill to our right. He gave several loud high-pitched snorts because apparently he was not happy with us. No doubt he wanted to join us in the cool valley and wasnâ€™t used to sharing. By now it was getting close to 9 a.m. and I noticed the first of the many safari Jeep rides coming down the road. These are open-sided Jeeps with a guide/driver that take tourists around and point out wildlife. They were moving fairly fast and slowed down a little bit
when they passed by our RV. They couldnâ€™t see us, but we could clearly see them. Almost four hours had passed since we started photographing and recording. It was getting a little hot and we were about to call it a day and head back for some breakfast when the fi rst wildlife watchers showed up. That brings me to my point. If you donâ€™t understand basic wildlife behavior you wonâ€™t see much wildlife. In the heat of the summer, donâ€™t wait until 9 or 10 a.m. before going out. Another thing, get out of your vehicle and look around. The chances of seeing something cool are much greater when you are moving slowly, are closer to the ground and are away from the road. Until next time ... Stan Tekiela is an author / naturalist/ wildlife photographer from Victoria who travels the United States to study and photograph wildlife.

ing undue risk with taxpayer money,” Ju lius w rote i n a statement, citing city-operated liquor stores and the proposed sports dome as examples. Terms expire Dec. 31, 2011 for Williams, McColl and Kelly. McColl has served on the City Council since 2004 and Kelly has served since 2007.

City Administrator Barry Stock remains confident that the city of Savage is in a good fi nancial position, despite an anticipated $ 310,000 general fund budget gap for 2012 after factoring in expenditure increases and revenue offsets. The City Council received an update from Stock called, “Where are we at – Where are we going,” during its Aug. 8 work session, and will review the budget further at an Aug. 29 work session. The total tax levy for residents has remained flat at about $15.2 million since 2009, and Stock said, “We’re trying to put together a budget that keeps our levy flat again in 2012.” Whether or not residents’ city portion of taxes will increase or decrease depends on a number of factors including property market values, city growth and the city tax base. The wildcard for 2012 will be the state-wide elimination of the Market Value Homestead Credit and the introduction of the Homestead Market Value Exclusion. The change will eliminate the uncertainty of State reimbursements, yet city staff is unsure at this point what the new change will mean for individual taxes. The preliminary city tax levy will be set at the beginning of September. Once the preliminary levy is set, the council is legally prevented from setting a higher fi nal levy, but may set a lower fi nal levy. Residents can expect an estimated tax statement from Scott County in November that compares 2011 taxes with estimates for 2012. The statement shows property market values, as well as preliminary taxes from each of the taxing jurisdictions. The City Council will hold a taxation hearing in December at which time the fi nal tax levy will be approved. Final tax statements are sent from the county in January.
FUND BALANCE To offset the anticipated $310,000 gap, the city will dip
into its projected $5.2 million general fund balance. “It sounds scary at first,” said Stock, “but every year, including this year, we’re going to come in better than budget.” Stock’s opti mism comes from past experiences like last year when the city drew down approximately $200,000 from its fund balance, but wound up with a carryover of almost $500,000. “That more than covered the $200,000 and we added an extra $300,000 to the fund balance,” said Stock. Stock further noted that d rawi ng dow n $ 310,0 0 0 on a $ 5.2 million fund balance will reduce the fund balance ratio, but not significantly. “We’ll still be well within the auditors’ recommendation of having a 30-50 percent fund balance ratio,” said Stock. The fund balance ratio is calculated by dividing the fund balance by the budget for the year, and even after the draw down, Savage would be looking at a 42 to 43 percent fund balance.
EXPENDITURE INCREASES General fund expenditures for 2010 were $11.1 million and 2011 budgeted expenditures are estimated at just over $12 million; however Stock anticipates that 2011 actual numbers will come in at $11.2 or $11.3 million. General fund expenditure increases for 2012 are expected to come from the employer share of health and dental insurance ($ 80,000), a 1 percent Cost of Living Adjustment for employees ($82,360), library bond payment ($200,000), unemployment expenses ($43,000) and staffi ng plan changes ($105,000). The elimination of the liquor store transfer of $175,000 brings the grand total of expenditure increases to $642,360. The city anticipates some revenue offsets as well: elimination of County Road 27 transfer ($100,000), elimination of the special project cost contingency fund ($75,000), revenue from sources like an increase in fee schedules ($63,835), transfer in from insurance fund ($43,000)
and transfer in from the liquor fund ($50,000).
LIQUOR FUND The liquor fund is turning a small profit, but nothing like it was four years ago when the city was able to transfer $175,000 to the general fund and use another $200,000 for the library bond payment. In fact, Stock said there is a “negative trend line” with liquor store operations in the city, which won’t allow the city to pull that kind of money out in 2012, although it will be able to transfer $50,000 to the general fund. Mayor Janet Williams noted that the liquor stores “are not losing money.” Rather, the income generated from the city’s three liquor stores has decreased, but the businesses are still showing a profit. In 2007, the net income for the liquor operation was $548,800 versus $155,300 in 2010.
STAFFING CHANGES In June and July, managers per for med sta f f ing assessments and recommended changes based on service delivery expectations, departmental needs, resources and skills available, then completed assessments of major anticipated budget changes. Proposed staffing changes for 2012 include position reclassifications, reductions in hours, eliminations and additions with a total anticipated cost to the city of just over $90,000 in 2012. Recommended eliminations include a part-time administrative clerk in the finance/ HR department, two part-time administrative clerk positions in the public works department and a part-time assistant engineer. Staff anticipates approximately $43,000 in unemployment costs in 2012 from eliminations. Reductions include a staff accountant to part-time, inspector to part-time, police code enforcement position to part-time and a reduction in administrative secretary hours. Additions include a new assistant fi nance director, parttime administrative clerk in the planning department and additional hours for the senior planner.
Residents can expect an estimated tax statement from Scott County in November that compares 2011 taxes with estimates for 2012. Two requests that Stock said “can’t happen in 2012,” include the fi re department’s request for four full-time employees for a fire duty crew and the police department’s request for a part-time community service officer.
BUILDING PERMITS Stock pointed to building permits as being a key component to Savage’s livelihood. And so far this year, building permits are on track to be the same or a little higher than last year. Last year, the city issued 85 building permits, and as of Aug. 8, the city had issued 42 permits. “We’re not doing that bad given the current economy,” said Stock. And 2012 could see a spike in building permits if proposed developments like Keystone Communities and Village Commons move forward. The city also plans to add two commercial building permits to the list next year with the construction of the buildings for Fairview Medical Clinic and Beckhoff Automation. “Everything is tied to permit activity,” said Stock, noting that building permits affect service revenues like engineering charges, and mechanical and plumbing permits. Although a combination of healthy building in the city and “conservative practices” have allowed the city to tuck away money in the general fund, a day will come when the city has no more land to build on. “We can’t dip into the fund balance forever and we can’t count on department managers coming in under budget,” said Stock, noting that the city shouldn’t get “addicted” to building permits. Eventually, the city of Savage will likely have to explore a levy increase. “I’d be open to tiny, incremental increases rather than a giant jump in three years,” said Councilwomen Christine Kelly.

Heroic actions save bus full of children from St. John the Baptist BY ALEX HALL email@example.com
HEROICS AND LUCK It was a stiflingly hot Wednesday morning, and chaperones from St. John the Baptist had just finished packing the sixth-, seventh- and eighth-graders into the bus for a volunteering trip to Feed My Starving Children in Chanhassen as part of the church’s Summer Stretch program. They hit the road optimistic and excited for the day, but it wasn’t long before the trip hit a snag. While en route to Feed My Starving Children, the bus they were riding in broke down, and everybody was forced to wait in a strip mall parking lot in the blistering heat for about 30-45 minutes until a replacement bus arrived. “It was a heat index of I think 113 that day,” said one of the group’s chaperones, Nicole Jeziorski. Und au nte d, t he g roup pressed on. But the inconvenience they had just experienced wouldn’t compare with what was about to happen next. As the bus traveled westbound on I-494 near the 212 west exit, its driver, Marc Yadeau, suddenly hunched over in his seat and instantly lost control of the bus. “One of the parents up front was saying, ‘No one’s driving, no one’s driving!’” said Jeziorski. Those on the bus could then hear the sound of the bus grinding up against the guard rail, and it was clear something had to be done. That’s when Taormina, 24, who was sitting right behind Yadeau when he collapsed, sprang into action, taking control of the bus and guiding it and its precious cargo to safety. “My first instinct was to straighten it out, because when (Yadeau) let go, we were heading onto the ramp, but we were going too far to the right,” said Taormina, “so I straightened us out and ended up leading us of f-road. Once we got it straightened out I reached in and found the brake.” Eden Prairie Police arrived on the scene quickly as the wife of an on-duty officer had seen the bus lose control and called her husband, expediting the response. When they got there, Taormina and the other chaperones, including Jeziorski and Maddie Sabin, were helping the kids off the back of the bus. “(Eden Prairie Police and Fire) were on their way before the fi rst 911 call even came in,” said St. John the Baptist Rev. Michael Tix, “so the response couldn’t have been any quicker. It’s pretty amazing.”

For just about everybody, it was the worst-case scenario. A school bus carrying 62 children and five adults is heading down the highway when all of a sudden, the driver slumps over in his seat, causing the bus to careen off of the guard rail of an exit, leaving the children and adult chaperones in terror. This wasn’t a scene from a high-budget summer blockbuster, but rather the real-life events surrounding a near crash on July 20 involving a bus full of kids and volunteers from St. John the Baptist Catholic Church in Savage. However, much like most summer blockbusters, this story also had a clear-cut hero. Tim Taormina of Apple Valley, a chaperone on the bus, saw what was happening and grabbed the wheel, applied the breaks and was able to maneuver the bus off of an exit into a grassy area, sparing the bus’ occupants of any injury. “You’ve got a bus barreling down the highway at 60 mph, and the driver loses consciousness, it can go anywhere,” said Eden Prairie Police Sgt. Jarrad Biggar, one of the fi rst responders on the scene. “Luckily (Taormina) was sitting behind him and took control of the bus, because if he hadn’t done that, that bus could have gone anywhere off the road and overturned. He defi nitely prevented a certain tragedy, that’s for sure.”

Man charged with stabbing brother A 19-year-old man from Savage is accused of st abbi n g his brother in the back during an Aug. 14 domestic dispute. B r e n t Jacob -L ewi s Dahlman has been charged Brent with secondDahlman degree assault with a dangerous weapon after he allegedly stabbed his older brother with a steak knife. An intake nurse at Hennepin County Medical Center said the brother’s injuries were not li fe -t h reateni ng, although doctors told him the blade was half an inch from hitting his spleen. According to the complaint, police were called to a residence in the 4800 block of West 145th Street at about 3:06 a.m. for a report of a stabbing. W hen they arrived, they found the victim, Dahlman’s 24-year-old brother, hunched over on some stairs. Several persons in the house told the officers that there had been a fight and that the brother was stabbed by Dahlman, although no one had actually seen the stabbing. One of the officers went into the kitchen, where the fight occurred, and found a steak knife with a five inch blade that had blood on its tip, and also saw blood on the floor. A K-9 officer from Bloomington arrived to help the officers locate Dahlman, and eventually found him in the backyard. During the arrest, officers observed that Dahlman was extremely drunk. Dahlman said he had no idea what was going on and that he didn’t do anything. In a statement to police, Da h l ma n said his brot her brought home a woman i n the early hours of Aug. 14. He said the woman was grabbing
at him while they were in the garage, so he pushed her away. The brother asked Dahlman if he hit her, and Dahlman said he did. Dahlman said the brother began attacking him and put him in a choke hold, so he ran inside and up to the kitchen. The brother followed him to the kitchen, Dahlman said, and the fi ghting continued. Dah l man said he then grabbed the knife and stabbed his brother, and said the knife went about two inches into his back. They continued fighting for a couple of minutes until the brother fi nally realized he had been stabbed. Dahlman apologized to his brother, but said he did it in self-defense. He then fled on foot. In a statement to the police, the brother said he saw Dahlman punch the woman, which started a shoving match. The brother said he went up to the kitchen to get away from Dahlman, but that Dahlman followed him. While in the kitchen, the brother said Dahlman tried to punch him in the face, so he placed Dahlman in a “bear hug.” The brother said he believes this is when he was stabbed. If convicted, Dahlman could face up to seven years in prison. In March, Dahlman pled guilty to felony third-degree arson. -Alex Hall
Informant leads to drug arrest A man with an extensive criminal history and a woman with a history of drug arrests are accused of selling methamphetamine out of their home on McColl Drive. Kerri Lynn Breeden, 37, has been charged with two felony counts of fi fth-degree possession of a controlled substance and one count of unlawfully possessing or selling pharmaceutical drugs. Robert James Lunak, 44, has been charged with fourth-degree possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell and fi fth-degree possession of
DISTRICT COURT a controlled substance. According to the complaint, a confidential informant working with the Southwest Metro Drug Task Force bought methamphetamine at Breeden and Lunak’s home in the 4400 block of McColl Drive on April 13. The next day, an informant set up a drug buy in Chaska where Breeden and Lunak were both arrested. They were found to be in possession of 17 grams of methamphetamine. Police then searched their McColl Drive home. In the upstairs bedroom, officers found a black safe, which Lunak had given them the keys to during his arrest. In the safe was a small bag of marijuana, a glass methamphetamine pipe, a drug ledger labeled with names and dollar amounts, a bag with methamphetamine residue and $570 in cash. On a computer desk, officers found two glass pipes with methamphetamine residue and a jar of marijuana. In a dresser drawer, they found two bundles of $100 bills totaling $3,900. They also found 18 capsules of fluoxetine, 25 tablets of amphetamine, three or four shards of methamphetamine weighing 1.2 grams, a box of plastic bags and another glass pipe with methamphetamine residue. Breeden told police that she was traveling to Chaska with Lunak that day, but did not know there were drugs in the car. She also said her clothes are in the upstairs bedroom, but that she sleeps downstairs and didn’t know about the drugs in the bedroom. Breeden also told police that she has prescriptions for the pills that were found in the unlabeled bottles. Bre e den h a s previou sly been convicted of second-degree possession of a controlled substance in 2000 and fi fth-degree possession of a controlled substance in 2003.

At 7:42 p.m., the Savage Fire Department responded to a house fire in the 5800 block of 150th Street in Prior Lake. They provided mutual aid to Prior Lake, assisting with fire suppression and overhaul. They were on the scene for about two hours. Firefighters from Shakopee and Mdewakanton Emergency Services also responded to the fire. A woman who was in an adjacent home on the same property was helped to safety by two boaters who had seen the fire. Two Prior Lake firefighters were taken to the hospital for dehydration, and another was injured during the cleanup and needed stitches. All were treated and released. Prior Lake Fire Chief Doug Hartman said at the time that he considered the home to be a “total loss.”
Aug. 11 The fire department received a call at 5:23 p.m. regarding a shed fire in the 20300 block of Panama Avenue in Prior Lake.

Savage firefighters were on the scene for about an hour and a half. At 9:17 p.m., firefighters responded to a fire in a large commercial Dumpster in front of a home in the 7600 block of Stafford Trail that was undergoing construction. When they arrived, the completely full Dumpster had flames 10 feet high. The fire was put out and no damage was done to the house.

The boy was transported to the hospital. Aug. 8 The fire department responded to a one-vehicle rollover in the area of Dakota Avenue and Dufferin Drive at 8:34 p.m. An ice cream truck driver had hit a curb on the right side of the road, tried to overcorrect to the left and flipped his vehicle.

Keep your home pet-friendly and fresh
course you love your pets, but let’s face it: Whether you’re hosting guests or trying to sell your home, the last thing you want visitors to remember is an odor. Luckily, there are a number of ways to eliminate odors and let your home’s personality shine.
Refreshing walls Paint is one of the most dramatic and cost-effective ways to give your home’s interior a new look, and now it can also give your home a new fresh scent. For example, Dutch Boy’s Refresh paint features odor-eliminating technology from Arm & Hammer. It reduces odors caused by pets and other sources, keeping your home smelling as good as it looks.
Clean with steam Even if your pet isn’t allowed on the furniture, your home furnishing fabrics are holding onto unpleasant scents. Though you may vacuum regularly, animal hair and dander are trapped in the ﬁbers of your cushions, curtains, sofa and other decor. Using a steam cleaner
is the best way to eliminate bad smells in upholstered furniture and other items that cannot be laundered. Hire a professional service to treat the common areas in your home, or purchase a steam cleaner speciﬁcally designed for pet hair removal. Deep-clean common area fabrics several times each year, and to help maintain a fresh smell day to day, use an odorneutralizing fabric spray regularly.
Hit the ﬂoor The biggest source of your home’s potentially objectionable smell could be right under your feet. As anyone who has house-trained a pet knows, they don’t always get it right, and sometimes those accidents go unnoticed and cause stains to inevitably set in. To remove odors of any age, scrub bare ﬂoors with white vinegar and water or an odor-neutralizing cleaner, and thoroughly wash carpets and rugs using an odor-neutralizing shampoo. You can also hire a professional to clean the carpets and provide extra deodorizing treatments. If stains or smells remain, you’ll likely need to replace the carpet
and padding. If this is the case, be sure to scrub the ﬂoor beneath before laying new carpet down. After the carpet has been thoroughly cleaned or replaced, regularly use carpet deodorizer formulated for pet odors when vacuuming.
Scented accessories Tie a ribbon on your odor-free home with strategically placed candles and air fresheners. Choose classic scents that complement your decor, and use a variety throughout the home to avoid an overpowering result. Many candles and fresheners offer odor-neutralizing technology as well as pleasant scents, ensuring unfavorable smells are not only covered up but eliminated. Jars of potpourri or scented crystals add touches of personality to any room decor as well. No matter what types or the number of pets that share your home, these tips will help keep it smelling fresh all year round. Source: ARA Content

the guidelines — of up to 40 ye a r s — b e c au se of t he cruelty of the crime, particularly putting Ruth A nne’s body in a garbage can, a nd bec ause Charles the defendant Maddox showed no remorse, Scott County Attorney Pat Ciliberto said Wednesday. Abrams denied the request, saying that while the murder was brutal, violent and reprehensible, he found no basis for an increased sentence. Abrams also said he did not see any reason to go along with the defense’s request of 21 years, nine months — the lowest allowed by sentencing guidelines. He said Maddox’s actions following the crime indicated Maddox was attempting to escape the consequences and if not for some diligent police work, “this might have been a crime that would never have been prosecuted.” Ruth Anne’s sister, Karen Whitaker, thanked the community, police, county attorney’s office, jury and judge for their support. “We a re h appy t h at t he judge realized the severity of the crime and saw through Tony today,” Whitaker said. Whitaker and her mother, Lois Lipka, spoke prior to the sentencing. Addressing Maddox, Whitaker said she knew Maddox was to blame when her sister was reported miss-
ing Nov. 11. W hen she heard of Ruth Anne’s death, Whitaker said, her world came to a “screeching halt” before she started calling relatives to share the news. “To this day, I can remember the individual noises of anguish each one made,” Whitaker read. “I am haunted by these sounds and my heart is forever broken.” A representative from the county attorney’s office also read a letter from Ruth Anne’s childhood friend, Colleen Hatami of Indiana, who was not present. She called Tony an arrogant, charismatic man who has shown no remorse or sadness over his wife’s death. “The only thing Tony is sorry for is he got convicted of a crime he undoubtedly committed,” Hatami wrote. Ruth Anne’s mother shared similar sentiments. “His only remorse is for poor Tony because he got caught,” Lipka said. Hatami wrote that Maddox had swept Ruth Anne off her feet at a class reunion and within three months she sold her house and moved to Minnesota with him. As Ruth Anne’s money depleted so did Maddox’s charm, Hatami said. She said Maddox had defrauded other women in the past and taken advantage of his loving family. She feared he may do the same if released on a lighter sentence. Whitaker spoke of the “web of deceit” Maddox had created through gambling, porn, tax evasion, cheating and ruining Ruth Anne financially. Yet, that wasn’t enough, Whitaker said. “You purposely and angrily
took a precious life — the life of someone I love very much … ” Whitaker said. “All I can hope for is you live a very long life — all of it behind bars.” Abrams noted he had received several letters of support for Maddox; he denied, however, allowing three family and friends in the courtroom to speak for Maddox. Defense at tor ney Br u no told Abrams a minimum sentence of 21 years, nine months would still be three times the sentence of ma nslaughter, which some may see the case as. The act was an “extreme aberration, not characteristic of who Mr. Maddox was,” Bruno said. Maddox also spoke, apologizing to the court, his family and Ruth Anne’s family. He said if he had remained the hu sba nd to Rut h A n ne he shou ld have been, maki ng reference to marriage vows, they would have never come to divorce. He said he panicked the night of her death and should have called the police right away. He also thanked his family for its love and support, saying it “changed me as a person and as a man.” Walking into the courtroom Wednesday, Whitaker said she still had feelings of sickness despite a nearly three-year legal battle. While the sentencing is over, she’s learned the ordeal will never really get easier. “My sister is such a good person and what Tony did was so heinous,” W hitaker said. “There’s no punishment that would be enough because it’s never going to bring her back.”

Take pain-free path to training for a 5K BY KRISTIN HOLTZ firstname.lastname@example.org
t’s time. Put down the remote control. Throw away the half-eaten chip bag. Pull yourself off the loveseat.
We’re going running. If only it was that simple. Running a 5K takes a lot more than just deciding you want to get active; it’s also about ensuring your body is ready for the road. Adopting a training program that increases your endurance and stamina gradually is key to preventing running injuries, said Leslie Burkhalter, a physical therapist at ACCUA in Savage. “There are a lot of really good programs out there, especially for first-timers,” she said. If you haven’t been active in awhile, Burkhalter recommends starting with a walking program. It’s also a good idea, she said, to schedule a physical with your doctor to ensure your body can handle the rigors of exercise.
“Injuries can take time to heal and that is very frustrating and can cause people to quit an exercise routine all together. That’s why starting gradually and increasing the demand on the body slowly is so important.” Justin Musil Owner of Anytime Fitness, Eden Prairie “Many people suffer setbacks and injuries because they start too fast,” said Justin Musil, a NSCA-certified strength and conditional specialist and owner of Anytime Fitness in Eden Prairie. “If you become sore at the beginning your body will adjust, but you may need to cut back on the demands you are placing on your body.” Burkhalter suggested alternating walking and jogging for several blocks and then checking your heart rate. If you can still speak when exercising, “that’s a pretty good indicator [you] can still continue to do more,” she said. A run/walk series is a great way
Training tips 1. What advice would you offer for people starting an exercise programs? Always be sure to check with your physician before starting a training program. After you are cleared to exercise it is then essential to start gradually. Many people suffer setbacks and injuries because they start too fast. Listen to your body. Sometimes rest is the key to helping your body recover. If you become sore at the beginning your body will adjust, but you may need to cut back on the demands you are placing on your body. With all of this being said, the body recovers much better with a well balanced diet and plenty of water. 2. Why are gradual increments the best? Increasing exercise in gradual increments allows the body to adapt more easily. Our body is very intelligent and will catch on quickly, but it will also get irritated and tell us we need to shut down if we jump into routines too fast. Injuries can take time to heal and that is very frustrating and can cause people to quit an exercise routine all together. That’s why starting gradually and increasing the demand on the body slowly is so important. Soreness is normal at the start of an exercise routine or a new routine but that should subside as you are further along into a good routine. Source: Justin Musil
to build your ability by giving your body days off to rest or cross train. Burkhalter recommends using an elliptical at your local gym or riding a stationary bike to get different muscles involved. In addition to avoiding injuries, alternative workouts can optimize your performance, too, Musil said. He recommends a good strength training routine and full body workouts, such as swimming and biking. “Even though these are both aerobic workouts, as is running, it incorporates different muscles and also helps keep your body in balance,” Musil said. “Swimming and biking also take pressure off your joints and that helps avoid injuries while in a running training program.” Another key to preventing injuries is good stretching, Burkhalter said. Instead of stretching cold, walk or light run for five minutes. Then stop and stretch your upper and lower body. Stretch again at the end. When training on a road or trail, alternate directions. For example, if you’re running around a lake, run clockwise one day and counterclockwise another. “Even the angle [or crown of the road] is enough to change the mechanics on the knees and hips,” Burkhalter said. Burkhalter recommends investing in a good pair of shoes. A running shoe store can help ensure you get the proper fit for your foot structure. If you run a lot consider rotating shoes every few months, she said. Some injuries, like shin splints, may indicate poor shoes, improper stretching or just an unusual running gait, Burkhalter said. Shin splints can usually be iced, but if you’re starting to feel knee or hip pain, consult a doctor or physical therapist, she recommended. Burkhalter, who has been running since high school, said another great way to get off the couch is by joining a running group. The Twin Cities has a number of running clubs that offer great advice on everything from training to stretching to nutrition. Most clubs have runners of different levels and abilities, so you can find people who understand your pace. “It’s a little bit more fun to run with people and it keeps everyone motivated, too,” she said.

Grainwood, WestWood schools get additional kindergarten classes BY MERYN FLUKER email@example.com
Sue Ann Gruver
concerted effort to tackle now. “We’ve been staffing at 22 [students per teacher] for the last few years, when we’ve been over crowded,” she said. District 719 enrollment is currently steady and expected to begin declining. The numbers remain stable due to large populations in the middle and high schools. The district is experiencing a downswing in elementary enrollment, including kindergarten, as the economy continues to wane and fewer young families move into the Prior Lake-Savage area. Kindergarten enrollment for the 2011-12 school year is at 451 students as of Aug. 4, down from the 467 first-graders and 489 secondgraders currently registered in the district. With the two new sections, District 719’s 22 kindergarten classes will average 20.5 students per section. “[Additional staff] will potentially bring several more students to Prior Lake-Savage Area Schools for the next 12 years,” Gruver wrote in her recommendation to the School Board. “I believe this is the investment needed at the time to bring families to our district.” Gruver has directed her attention to kindergarten because of the crucial role it plays in young students’ development. “We know that our elementary experience is critical for students,” she said. “Our dis-
istrators are still committed to providing it as an alternative for families. The $100,000 the school board committed to providing for the additional kindergarten sections on Monday will come from the district’s remaining $ 350,0 0 0 in Education Jobs Fund money. The district received $1.08 million from the federal government last fall as part of the program, which provided the one-time dollars for districts to spend on school-level salaries, benefits and services in early childhood, elementary and secondary education. The funds must be allocated by September 2012. Last fall, the district spent $350,000 of the Education Jobs Fund dollars for additional staffing. Then, earlier this year, $475,000 of that money on offering early-retirement incentives to teachers, a move designed for long-term savings by allowing room for the district to hire more new teachers, whose salaries and benefits cost less than their tenured counterparts. Gruver is planning to return to the School Board at its next meeting, on Monday, Aug. 22, with additional staffing recommendations at the elementary and possibly secondary levels if necessary. Those positions will also be funded through the remaining Education Jobs Fund dollars. As of right now, Gruver has her eyes on a ballooning kindergarten class at Five Hawks Elementary School, and said she may recommend adding a paraprofessional to that classroom to support the instructor. In addition, as the secondary schools’ staffs adjust in preparation for the first year with six-period school days, there are still wrinkles in need of ironing.

Future kindergarten students at two local elementary schools can anticipate plenty of breathing room beginning Tuesday, Sept. 6. At the Monday, Aug. 8 regular meeting, the Prior Lake-Savage Area School Board unanimously approved the immediate addition of an extended-day kindergarten class at Grainwood Elementary School. The board also gave Superintendent Sue Ann Gruver latitude to add another kindergarten section at WestWood Elementary School. The moves will cost $100,000 total. Gruver recommended the allocations based on enrollment. As of Monday, 33 kindergarten students had already registered at Grainwood. That number has now reached 34 students and Principal Patrick Glynn is “excited to be able to offer a second section of kindergarten.” “Two sections of 17 each is educationally more appropriate than only one section of 34 with a support staff,” he says. “Parents, with kindergarten being the first formal year of their child’s education, appreciate low class size and the attention staff can offer their child.” As of Monday, WestWood counted 30 kindergarten students in its ranks for the coming school year, with at least five more expected to enroll by the end of the week. “When it gets to 33 or 34, we’ll break it into two sections,” Gruver said. The superintendent said that this year, most of the extendedday kindergarten classes will have 16 to 18 students per instructor. That’s a considerably lower ratio than in past years, something Gruver is making a
trict wants our earliest learners to have the best educational experience they can have at the class-size levels we can afford.” With the increased importance placed on standardized test scores, including the new state education bill which includes Literacy Incentive Aid tied to total elementary enrollment and student reading proficiency – namely for third- and fourth-grade students – Gruver said that smaller class sizes can identify and effectively address children who struggle with literacy skills. Staff can provide “that intervention before you start to remediate,” she said. That funding change is set to take effect in beginning with the 2012-13 school year. “Over the past several years we have noticed a troubling downward enrollment in kindergarten,” Gruver wrote in her recommendation to the School Board. “There is a high correlation associated with strong kindergarten classes: these students typically remain in Prior Lake-Savage Area Schools through grade 12.” District 719 offers two kindergarten programs: extended-day classes, which are available at all District 719 kindergartenthrough-fifth-grade elementary schools – including WestWood and Grainwood – and halfday kindergarten at Edgewood School. Currently, two-thirds of district families with kindergarten students are taking advantage of extended-day kindergarten. “I believe with lower class sizes than we’ve had in the past, even more families will take advantage of that opportunity,” Gruver said, adding that while the district is offering fewer half-day kindergarten classes than it has in the past, admin-

CLASS B AMATEUR BASEBALL
Another shot Back to state again, Outlaws will take aim at the title BY TOM SCHARDIN firstname.lastname@example.org
SAVAGE OUTLAWS PHOTO
Travis Pugliese and the Savage Outlaws are playing in their fourth straight Class B state tournament which begins today (Saturday, Aug. 20) in the towns of Brownton, Glencoe and Hutchinson.
One team stood in the way of the Savage Outlaws earning a fourth straight state berth. The Shakopee Indians, the two-time defending Class B state champions. The Outlaws and Indians met in an elimination game Aug. 13 in the Super Sections in the Cold Spring bracket. The winner was going to state. The loser was going home. Savage pulled out a 3-2 win, getting out of a bases-loaded jam in the bottom of the ninth inning with a run already in to assure there would be a new state champion this summer. Savage opened the four-team Super Section with a 1-0 win over Blaine Aug. 12 and followed with a 5-3 loss to
Sauk Rapids, setting up the elimination game with Shakopee. Savage faced Sauk Rapids again Aug. 14, needing to win twice to earn the higher seed at state. However, Sauk Rapids pounded out 18 hits in an 11-5 victory. Savage takes a 32-5 record in state and will face Mankato in the first round today (Saturday, Aug. 20) in Hutchinson. Mankato was the winner of Miesville Super Section bracket site. There were four, four-team Super Section sites played Aug. 12-14 with two from each advancing to state. Chaska won on its own field and Burnsville won the Dundas bracket site. The Savage-Mankato winner at state will take on the winner of Moor-
head and Burnsville Sunday, Aug. 21 in Brownton at 1:30 p.m. The losers will play beforehand at 11 a.m. In the bottom state bracket, Austin faces Sauk Rapids in the fi rst round, while Chaska takes on Miesville. The semifi nals are set for Aug. 27 in Brownton at 1 p.m. with the winner’s bracket fi nal Aug. 28 in Glencoe at 2 p.m. For complete state brackets, go to www.minnesotabaseball.org. Last year, the Outlaws finished third at state and took fi fth the year before. The team has qualified for state five of the last six years. Stats for the four Super Section games were not available on the Outlaws’ Website.

New set of rules MSHSL sets 2012 playoff format for 6A
PL loaded with depth, talent, youth
BY DAN HUSS email@example.com
BY TOM SCHARDIN firstname.lastname@example.org
The Prior Lake girls tennis team made huge strides last season in coach Kris Rosborough’s fi rst season as coach. This fall, don’t be surprised if the Lakers make a run at the Section 3AA and South Suburban Conference titles. Rosborough’s team is deep, talented and full of youth. There are only two seniors on the team – captains Caitlin Gengler and Alex Fasking. Meanwhile, Rosborough has nine sophomores or younger returning with varsity experience on a team that finished 12-5 last year (5-4 in the conference). “We have 12 girls who are returning who have all worked very hard,” said Rosborough. “We also have (a new seventh grader) who will be a great asset. Determining the lineup is going to be the hardest thing because we have so many good players. “I have some doubles combinations in mind that I want to try in practice, but a lot will depend on who winds up being our best four singles players,” added Rosborough. “When you put together a lineup you have to consider the team as a whole and what is best overall. So I have a lot to consider because so many of the girls have made big improvements.” Prior Lake opens the season Wednesday, Aug. 24 at Henry Sibley in a non- conference match at 10 a.m. The Lakers’ first conference match is set for Thursday, Aug. 25 at Burnsville at 9:30 a.m. Prior Lake’s home opener is Aug. 30 against Eagan at 3:30 p.m. The Wildcats are the defending section champs and will again be one of the teams to beat this fall, along with Rosemount. Lakeville North and South will also be teams to reckon with in conference play. Those four schools gave the Lakers’ all five of their defeats last year. Prior Lake’s 12 wins were the second most in school history, three behind the 1991 team that went 15-3 and earned a spot in the Class AA state field.

Hopeful Blaze blessed with balance from top to bottom BY TOM SCHARDIN email@example.com
Balance will be the strength of the Burnsville girls tennis team this fall. “From my fi rst to my 12th player, there’s not a big difference between them,” said Blaze coach Ben Stapp. “It’s good group of girls. I’m going to have to fi nd out where we can get some points and fi nding some doubles teams might be tricky.” Stapp has six seniors and six juniors in his top 12. Senior captains Rachel Raden and Anne Beckel are back for their fourth varsity seasons, while seniors Brita Preus and Toni Carlstrom and juniors Sarah Davidson, Mikhaila Samz, Jessica Nagel and Emily Wollmuth also have varsity experience from a year ago. The Blaze is coming off a 5-9 season last fall, 2-7 in its fi rst season in the South Suburban Conference.

Burnsville lost in the fi rst round of the Section 3AA tournament, falling 4-3 to Holy Angels. If the Blaze is going to make some noise in the conference and section this year, Stapp’s team will definitely need to find some strong doubles pairings, as well finding some singles players who can elevate their game against tough competition. “Right now, everybody is so even,” said Stapp. “I think our team is pretty deep, but we have no superstars.” “The girls have matured and so have their games,” added Stapp.

The Class 6A football playoff format passes the smell test. The sight test? Well, let’s just say it looks confusing. For those that don’t remember, or never heard in the first place, the Minnesota State High School League’s Board of Directors approved the addition of a seventh class of football for the 32 largest schools in the state at its April meeting. The board voted on a playoff format Aug. 16 and beginning with the 2012 season (not this fall), the 32 6A teams will be divided into four eight-team sections. For the fi rst round of the playoffs, sections will seed the eight teams and commence play with No. 1 hosting No. 8; No. 2 hosting No. 7; No. 3 hosting No. 6 and No. 4 hosting No. 5. H e r e’s t h e c o n f u si n g part. In the second round, the four winning teams from one section will be matched up against the four winning teams from another section. Which section plays which section will be determined by a random d raw; high seeds play low seeds. Section to section pairing will rotate every two years. A f ter two rou nds, t he eight remaining teams will advance to the state quarterfinals, where they’ll be seeded according to the current seeding format, with coaches voting on the top four seeds and a blind draw determining opponents for the remaining four teams. Quarterfi nal games will be played when the other classes play their quarterfinals games. Class 6A semifinal games will be played the Thursday prior to Thanksgiving. The Class 6A state championship game will be on Friday night of Prep Bowl weekend. “I don’t know i f going to 32 teams was the right decision,” said Mike Grant, coach of the perennial power Eden Prairie football team, “but if it is, this seems to be the fairest way to run playoffs.”

YOU VERSUS THE INSURANCE COMPANY When individuals suffer injury resulting from another person’s negligence, the responsible party’s insurance company often makes an immediate settlement offer. At this point, would-be plaintiffs are advised to politely decline the offer and consult with a personal injury lawyer, who can provide an idea of what the case may actually we be worth. However, this does not necessarily mean that a settlement is out of the question. Most personal injury cases involving insurance companies end in settlements, largely because insurance companies are in the business of covering policyholders and limiting their liability, have the money to pay out, and generally do not want protracted legal battles with unsure outcomes. It is up to the plaintiff to get the best settlement possible. If you feel that an insurance company has been treating you unfairly, or if you have any questions about a potential settlement, please call our office. Our compassionate attorneys have years of experience dealing with insurance companies in order to settle a wide variety of personal injury cases, from auto and truck accidents to wrongful death. The big companies have lawyers looking out for their interests, you should too. Please call 952-226-1202 to schedule a free initial appointment to discuss the merits of your case. Our address is 6001 Egan Drive, Suite 140, Savage, MN. Multiple Services, Singular Commitment. HINT: A good settlement not only ensures a plaintiff of a win, it also avoids a protracted trial that can drain energy and emotions.

“They don’t just hit the ball over now. T hey’re playing smarter tennis. As a person gets older, they play smarter. We will have to play smart tennis.” Newcomers to the Blaze varsity are seniors Josephine Montgomer y and Mckenna Stebbins and juniors Allison Noorgard and Sydney Zimmer. “Hopefully, (our returning players) can lead the players along, who don’t have any varsity experience,” said Stapp.

Ninth-grader Dani Keller has played No. 1 singles for the Lakers the last two years, but Rosborough said she’ll be pushed this fall by eighth-grader Chloe Hall, who played No. 4 singles most of last year. “Chloe Hall has greatly improved,” said Rosborough. “Dani has also improved, so those two are very close.” Seventh-g rader Savanna Crowell is also expected to make an immediate impact. “She will play somewhere in the singles lineup, but I’m just not sure exactly where,” said Rosborough. “Dani, Chloe, and Savanna will probably be our top three singles players, but I’m not sure about the order.” Gengler played No. 2 singles most of last year, while Fasking played No. 1 or 2 doubles. Junior Savanna Peterson, sophomores Hannah Lund and Sarah Henderson and eighthgraders Grayce Peterson and Sydney Soeffker earned significant varsity time last playing either singles or doubles, while sophomores Nicole Henderson, Abby Broadwell and Emily Gulstad will compete for time in the top 10. “We have many options for No. 4 singles and have a lot of

When asked to explain, he talks of having the best teams advancing to the state tournament. “For us,” he adds, “it would’ve been almost impossible to make it any harder than what we’re doing right now. Some years, our section has five teams ranked in the top 10.” With the addition of Wayzata into a section that had already included Eden Prairie, Minnetonka, Edina and Hopkins, that might be the norm. What differs, however, is what happens after the first round. In the old format, matchups amongst some of the state’s
Burnsville opens the season Tuesday, Aug. 24 in a nonconference match at Chaska at 10 a.m. The Blaze’s home and conference opener is set for Thursday, Aug. 26 against Prior Lake at 9:30 a.m. The Lakers look to be one of the team’s to beat in the conference and in the section. Prior Lake, 12-5 last year, is loaded with talented youth, including 10 sophomores or younger in its top 12. Eagan is the defending section champion, beating Rosemount in the title match last year. Those are the three teams to beat in the section, while Lakeville North and Lakeville South
are strong in the conference. Burnsville plays at Rosemount Aug. 30, before returning home Sept. 1 to take on Bloomington Jefferson. The Blaze gets Eagan at home Sept. 15 and faces the two Lakeville teams in the last two regular season matches (home to Lakeville North Sept. 22 and at Lakeville South Sept. 27). Burnsville will also be the host of its own invite Sept. 17 with Holy Angels, Henry Sibley and Shakopee in the field. “We are going to have a fun season,” said Stapp. “I can’t ask for a better group of girls. They work hard. We’ll see how we end up in the end.”

doubles combinations to try,” said Rosborough. “Caitlin may wind up playing doubles this year instead, or she may play four singles. “Sa ra h Henderson, who played two doubles last year, is also greatly improved from last year and is playing great singles,” added Rosborough. “She’s another person who could play either singles or doubles.” Whether or not the Lakers win the conference and/or section titles this fall, there’s no doubt the future of Prior Lake tennis looks very bright. However, the future is never guaranteed, which is why expectations are high this fall. The ultimate goal is to get to state. “The whole team has been working hard since our loss to Rosemount in the section semifi nals last year with the goal of going to state this year,” said Rosborough. “It will be very hard as Rosemount and Eagan will both be very strong again, but it is a goal we can accomplish if we work hard and the
girls believe in themselves. “Honestly, I think with this group of girls anything is possible,” added Rosborough. “They all work hard and have great attitudes. Most importantly, they all get along well and care about the goals of the team ahead of themselves. As long as we keep that mindset going, I think it will be a great year.”
best teams took place at the section level. Under the new format, they could be played in front of a state tournament audience. In addition to the five Lake Conference teams (Eden Prairie, Edina, Hopkins, Minnetonka and Wayzata), Section 6 includes Minneapolis South, Robbinsdale Armstrong and Shakopee. Meanwhile, teams in Section 3 include: Prior Lake, Burnsville, Rosemount, Eastview, Lakeville North, Lakeville South, Eagan and Park of Cottage Grove. Section 4 teams are: CretinDerham Hall, Forest Lake, Mounds View, North St. Paul, Rosevi l le A rea, Sti l lwater Area, White Bear Lake Area and Woodbury.
Section 5 teams are: Anoka, Blaine, Brainerd, Centennial, Champlin Park, Coon Rapids, Maple Grove and Osseo. Of the largest schools for 2012, Eden Prairie, Wayzata, Cretin-Derham Hall and Minnetonka have combined to win nine state titles since 2000 with Eden Prairie and Wayzata each winning three times, Cretin twice and Minnetonka once. Burnsville and Stillwater were powers in the 1970s and 1980s, combining to win seven titles in the two decades. Burnsville’s last title was in 1991, while Stillwater won 1995. Coon Rapids, Rosemount won titles in the 1980s, while Anoka won twice in the 1990s, while Woodbury won once.

He’ll be pitching at the Division I level, recently committing to perennial power Florida State University. Reed made a big impression this summer pitching
for Minnesota Blizzard Elite team and Baseball Scoutz of Georgia. Reed caught the eye of Division I programs in the World A m a Dominic teur Baseball Reed A s s o c i at i o n ( WA BA) National Invitational in Florida in early July. The 6-foot-1-inch, 170-pound
Reed tossed a seven inning, two-hit complete-game in the tournament and had only one ball hit to the outfield in that outing. That was all in front of the Flordia State baseball staff. Reed touched 87 mph on the radar gun on his fastball, according to www.baseballscoutz. com. Reed was one the Lakers’ top-three starters last spring, helping the team a 13-11 overall record, 8-9 in the program’s first season in the South Suburban

New hunt rules Changes will protect from Chronic Wasting Disease Minnesota hunters are now able to purchase 2 011 deer licenses, while the state’s hunting regulation booklet is available online at www.mndnr.gov/ buyalicense. This year’s archery season opens Sept. 17. The general fi rearms season opens Nov. 5. The deadline for lottery permit applications is Sept. 8. “We’re looking forward to another good season,” said Lou Cornicelli, big game program coordinator for the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR). “Deer populations are at or near goals throughout much of the state.” Cornicelli said hunters will discover several new regulations for the upcoming deer season. The changes, he said, reflect the agency’s interest in regulation simplification and the protection of the state’s deer from Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD). Si g ni f ic a nt ch a nges for 2011: A new CWD management area, called Deer Area 602, has been established in southeastern Minnesota surrounding the area where a CWD positive deer was detected last fall. The new CWD management area will feature a 23-day fi rearm season. Submission of samples for CWD testing will be mandatory for deer harvested in this area, and there will be carcass import/export restrictions.
A new “hunter choice” deer management designation has been established that will allow hunters in certain areas to take one either-sex deer per year in one of these areas. These areas function like lottery areas, with the difference being hunters do not need to make a lottery application or possess an either sex permit to take an antlerless deer. In hunter choice areas, the license is automatically valid for an either-sex deer. Bonus permits are not allowed. If a deer is taken in one hunter choice area, a hunter cannot take another deer in another hunter choice or lottery deer area. The designation was created because the majority of deer permit areas are within their established goal ranges, and DNR managers believe one either-sex deer without a lottery would allow those areas to stay within goal without going back and forth between lottery and managed areas. Hunter choice was not created to increase antlerless harvest rates, but rather to make it simpler to take one either-sex deer in the area. Overall, 30 percent of Minnesota’s 127 deer permit areas are designated hunter choice this year. The DNR still uses the lottery in areas where antlerless deer harvest is restricted and managed and intensive harvest designations when ad-

Hunters will discover several new regulations for the upcoming deer season. The changes will reflect regulation simplification and the protection of the state’s deer from Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD). ditional antlerless deer harvest is needed. This year, 27 percent are managed and 17 percent are intensive areas. Firearm and muzzleloader lottery either-sex permits. Hunters may once again apply for either-sex or special hunt permits in both the fi rearm and muzzleloader seasons. In a change from previous years, hunters successful in the lottery can use their permit in either the fi rearm or muzzleloader season, provided they have a valid license for that season. The deadline for lottery and special hunt applications is Thursday, Sept. 8. Although a hunter can be selected for both licenses, successful applicants still can only take one deer.

Lakeville’s Dan Fredrickson returned to Elko Speedway Aug. 13 to compete in the 18th annual Dwain Behrens Memorial, winning the 40-lap Super Late Models headliner. Fredrickson has been away from Elko much of the last three seasons competing in the American Speed Association circuit. In his return, he led from start to fi nish. Meanwhile, other feature winners included: Doug Brown of Prior Lake in Big 8s, Brent Kane of Lonsdale in Thunder Cars, Matt Ostdiek of Lakeville in Legends, Devon Schmidt of Belle Plaine in Power Stocks and Zach Schelhaas of New Prague in Mini Stocks. Racing action at Elko continues today (Saturday, Aug. 20) with six divisions of racing. For more, go to www.elkospeedway. com or call (952) 461-7223. Meanwhile, Behrens, a resident of Northfield, was a long-
time racer at Elko before losing his li fe in a snowmobiling accident. He’s a member of the Elko Hall of Fame. At the start of the Super Late Models main event, 19 starters paraded around the oval with No. 40 memorial fl ags in tribute Behrens. At the drop of the green, Fred rickson edged away from Paul Paine to take the quick lead with Steve A nderson, Jason Schneider, Matt Goede, Nick Murgic and Jon Lemke in tow. As Fredrickson began to distance himself from Paine, Anderson got a great run off turn two moving to second on lap six. Murgic began to come to life as he caught and passed Paine on lap seven, before reeling in Anderson to take over second place on lap 11. Another challenger also came into the picture near the midpoint as Goede worked around Schneider, then Paine and Anderson to third on lap 18.
However, Fredrickson had powered his way to a 12-carlength advantage and wasn’t slowing down, so nobody was going to catch him as he cruised to victory. In the Big 8’s, Rookie of the Year contender Todd Kamish battled with Darren Wolke for the early lead with Brown ducking under Mike Pederson for third just two laps in. As Kamish kept Wolke at bay, Dylan Moore joined in the hunt on lap four, working by Ryan Kamish and then Pederson to take third. Wolke pulled even with Todd Kamish for the lead on lap seven, eventually taking the point on lap 10. Wolke would continue to show the way as Brown caught and passed Todd Kamish for second on lap 21, before reeling in Wolke on lap 23. Over the f inal two laps, Brown pulled away from Wolke for the win, with Moore working to third and Travis Stanley of Prior Lake ending up fourth.
Tight points battle No separation between drivers at Raceway Park MICK ANDERSON Correspondent
Adam Royle of Lonsdale put an end to Prior Lake’s Chad Walen’s two-week winning streak in the Super Late Model division Aug. 14 at Raceway Park. With the win, Royle holds a slim one-point advantage in the season points standings with three weeks of racing to go. Royle has won seven of the last 11 Super Late Model features, while Walen’s has won four times this summer. Walen also has fi nished second three times and has been third four times. So the chase for the points crown is almost certain to go down to the final week, the Whelen All-American Series Season Championships Sept. 11. Racing action will continue Sunday, Aug. 21 starting at 6 p.m. For more, go to www. goracewaypark.com. Meanwhile, other feature winners Aug. 14 were: Doug
Schmitz in Mini Stocks, Bryan Keske in Legends, Robert Backe in Short Trackers, Brent Kane in Hobby Stocks, James Wenzel in Bandoleros, Mark Bronstad in the fi rst Figure 8s feature and Ricky Martin in the second one. In Hobby Stocks, after Kane won his heat and was heading to the pits, a ball joint broke sending him careening off the track and into the dirt barrier between the fi rst and second turn. Kane emerged unscathed and after his ace pit crew got busy fi xing things he returned for the feature and sailed on to victory from his outside front row star ting position. The feature win was the 50th of his illustrious racing career. In Figure 8s, Bronstad continued his hot streak. Going back to July 31, he has fi nished first or second a combined nine times in either Friday non-points events or in Sunday NASCAR races.
Martin, the 2009 and 2010 Figure 8 track champion, leads the point standings with 1,323, which is 40 better than Bronstad. In Mini Stocks, Rylee Michaelson seemed destined to get her fi rst feature win of the year and she might have done it if the race had gone green all the way. She led from the pole for 14 laps until a yellow fl ag bunched the field. On the restart, Schmitz got around her and went on to score his fourth feature win of the year. Rylee fi nished fi fth just behind Schmitz, Jason Heitz, Jack Purcell and Todd Tacheny. In Short Trackers, a fter Backes’ new motor blew up at practice on Aug. 11, it looked like his chances to race on Aug. 14 ranged from slim to grim. But Backes defied that fate by hastening home and after working around the clock returned to Raceway Park to win the 15-lap feature, his first of the season.
