BURNSVILLE-EAGAN-SAVAGE SCHOOL DISTRICT

Full-day kindergarten back on the table School Board will discuss superintendent’s recommendation at Jan. 19 meeting BY ALEX HALL ahall@swpub.com

Eight years after the BurnsvilleEagan-Savage School District brought back full-day kindergarten, only to see it end a year later because of funding issues, Superintendent Randy Clegg is recommending the district give it another shot. This time, Clegg says, the district has the money to sustain it. In the 2003-2004 school year, the district began offering full-day kindergarten to all students at no extra cost. Clegg said a lack of state funding prevented them from offering it beyond that year. But since fiscal year 2004, the district has seen a drastic increase in the amount of compensatory dollars it sees from the state,

from just under $900,000 in 2004 to approximately $5.4 million in 2012. Clegg said the district would tap into those compensatory revenues to cover the annual cost of implementing full-day kindergarten, which Business Services Director Lisa Rider estimates would be, at most, $1.5 million. “As an administrative team, we looked at all the options for how we can maximize student achievement in our district,” said Clegg, “and we kept coming back to giving all kids a solid start in kindergarten, where they get the fundamental skills in reading and mathematics that will better prepare them to start closing the achievement gap as they move into fi rst, second and third grade.” The number of students eligible for

www.savagepacer.com Randy Clegg Superintendent free or reduced-price lunches is what drives the amount of compensatory funding the district receives from the state, and that money must be used to meet the educational needs of children who are under-prepared to learn, or who are not on track to meet state or local achievement goals. In 2002-2003, 21 percent of district elementary students were eligible for

free or reduced-price lunches, compared to 47 percent this year, which contributed to the rise in the district’s compensatory funding.

TOUTING THE BENEFITS Clegg presented his recommendation to the School Board during its Jan. 5 meeting, touting the benefits of early education and calling on several

members of the district’s administration to help make his case. “Neuroscience continues to reveal new evidence indicating how critical the early learning years are in the development of a child’s competence and coping skills that will affect their learning, behavior and health

Shakopee mayor proposes 130-acre site near Valleyfair BY SHANNON FIECKE sfiecke@swpub.com

As other proposa ls for a new Vikings stadium faced increasing scrutiny and the governor put out a Thursday deadline for all plans, Shakopee’s new Mayor Brad Tabke spoke with SavetheVikes.org founder Cory Merrifield. Two days later a plan was hatched to bring the Vikings to Shakopee. On Saturday, the pair huddled over a table at Perkins Restaurant for hours with the local Chamber of Commerce president, Assistant Senate Majority Leader Claire Robling of Jordan and Rep. Michael Beard of Shakopee. “Everyone thinks we’re too late in

Savage police officer now able to talk after last week’s crash BY ALEX HALL ahall@swpub.com

The 39-year-old Savage police officer who was seriously injured after he lost control of his squad car on icy roads and struck a tree has been moved out of the intensive care unit at North Memorial Medical Center in Robbinsdale and is now able to talk, according to his CaringBridge Web site. Officer Frank Mackall, of Cottage Grove, has been upgraded from

critical to serious condition, according to Savage Police Capt. Dave Muelken, and has been moved to the trauma unit, ac c or d i n g t o h i s CaringBridge page. Mackall was sedated and breathing with Savage Police the assistance of a Officer Frank ventilator for most Mackall of the fi rst week after the crash. The ventilator was

removed on Monday, Jan. 9. The crash occurred Monday, Jan. 2 just after 1 a.m. on Glendale Road near 137th Street. Mackall’s squad car was northbound on Glendale and hit a tree on the west side of the road. Police believe Mackall was on his way to assist fellow officers on a prowler call in the area of 131st Street and Glendale Road. The Minnesota State Highway Patrol is conducting an investigation into the crash and an accident reconstruction, which is typical for

such cases. Muelken said the results of the investigation likely won’t be ready for several weeks. The CaringBridge Web site that’s been set up for Mackall can be found at w w w.ca ri ngbridge.org /visit / FrankMackall. Mackall’s wife, Lisa, has been updating the page several times a day since the crash. As of Friday, more than 25,000 visits had been made to Mackall’s CaringBridge page and more than 700 entries have been logged in his guestbook.

Construction management company selected for Savage sports dome BY AMY LYON editor@savagepacer.com

The Savage City Council gave the go-ahead Monday, Jan. 9 for City staff to execute a professional services agreement with Oppidan to perform const r uc tion ma nagement services for the indoor sports facility proposed to be located at Community Park. “We’re already into the design [phase], and usually you bring on your construction manager during the design phase because that’s where they provide the real value,” said City Administrator Barry Stock. Oppidan, a construction management/architectural fi rm, will be tasked with working with the City to obtain planning and zoning approvals for the project, submitting a Conditional Use Permit (CUP) application on the City’s behalf, overseeing construction documents and costs, and engaging third party service providers. Oppidan agreed to provide their services at a cost not to exceed $200,000 – nearly half of what the company’s estimate was a year ago. “Staff is very concerned that this is somewhat of a unique project … an inf latable, seasonal dome is something none of us have had any experience with,” said Stock. “We really believe we have so many other projects going on next year that we don’t have the time or the expertise to give to this project if it goes forward to get it done on time and under budget.”

VIKINGS  continued from page 1

the game, but once we started looking at it and got into the fine details, it made a lot of sense,” Tabke said. “Six million people come to Shakopee every year and we handle all those people with ease.” On Wednesday afternoon, the group unveiled its plan to locate a 75,000-seat stadium on the 130-acre site kitty-corner from Valleyfair that contains the shelved ADC Telecommunications building. “We believe we have the best site that will be the easiest to develop for the Minnesota Vikings and is the cheapest cost and second-largest land area in acreage,” Tabke told the State Capitol press core. The plan is to demolish the 490,000-square-foot former ADC Telecommunications building, which was never completed due to the bursting of the dot-com bubble. It has been mothballed since 2001. The building – double the size of the proposed retractable-roof stadium – would be sold for scrap. “With all the metal and hightech things in there, which have been preserved, they will make money selling scrap,” Tabke said. “The majority can be recycled.” P roper ty ow ner Cha rles Mattson has been unable to fi nd a buyer for the ADC site. He signed a letter of intent to sell the land to the Vikings for $21.5 million. The property is valued by Scott County at $16.36 million. It costs Mattson $40,000 per month to maintain the building, which he keeps heated and cooled, Tabke said. The idea for a stadium in Shakopee began percolating with developer Richard Anderson six months ago. Anderson, who helped with the original sale of the ADC building to Mattson, approached Tabke after his election. “It was the right size and the other sites proposed were not fitting the bill,” said Anderson,

About half of the work to be completed by Oppidan will occur prior to the City going out for bids on the project, according to Stock. Councilwoman Jane Victorey pointed out that if the City opts not to build the sports dome it could lose approximately $100,000 in fees paid to Oppidan. “It’s the information that we’re going to need or the costs that we have to pay to get all the numbers that we need to finally make a decision,” said Mayor Janet Williams. Victorey voted against the execution of a professional services agreement with Oppidan.

TIMELINE In December, the City Council selected Tushie Montgomery Architects to complete the plans, specifications and bid documents for the sports dome project. Stock said on Jan. 9 that the site plan for the sports dome is nearly complete and preliminary plans should be in order by the end of January. A neighborhood meeting is scheduled at City Hall at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 2. Athletic user groups were given a deadline of Feb. 10 to turn in use agreements to Stock with anticipated hours they plan to reserve in 2012-2013. The City will use the numbers from the athletic groups to develop an estimate of operating revenue, which the City Council will discuss at its Feb. 13 work session. The item is then expected to

who developed much of the northeast quadrant of Eden Prairie. “It has two four-lane highways for traffic. All these other places had deadlocked roadways. On top of that, it’s a flat surface. It’s accessible and has all the other requirements. … It’s an attractive place for a tourist.” Tabke contacted Merrifield, a Shakopee resident, to find someone to help with the financing angle. Merrifield – who had already developed a detailed financing plan himself – got on board, and the idea fasttracked from there.

SHAKOPEE BENEFITS The Vikings say they’re still focused on Arden Hills, but the Shakopee property is being heralded by community leaders as less expensive, easy to build on and located in a town already on the map as an entertainment destination. The ADC site doesn’t carry the “baggage” of other sites, Tabke said, such as A rden Hills’ extensive cleanup requ i r ement s . D evelopment could begin quickly due to the dynamics of the site, which include existing sewer, water and power infrastructure. The lot is four times the size of the Metrodome and three times larger than the Farmers Market and Linden Avenue proposed sites. While dwarfed by the Arden Hills site, there is ample land nearby ripe for restaurants and retail businesses. The option is also the cheapest to build: an estimated $920 million. The site, which includes a separately-owned Conklin Co. lot, has room for an estimated 32,500 parking stalls, with Valleyfair and Canterbury Park proposed to hold excess parking and tailgating. People could also park at nearby transit sites and be shuttled over. A lthough Valleyfair and Canterbury are aware of the proposal, neither are involved in the project. Canterbury spokesman Ron Rosenbaum said the horsetrack will be comfortable with

“We’re already into the design [phase], and usually you bring on your construction manager during the design phase because that’s where they provide the real value.”

whatever site the Legislature chooses, “but obviously we’d be pleased if it’s in Shakopee.” A bonus for the site: it’s located adjacent to Quarry Lake, a 105-acre city-owned site being held for a future park and recreation area, which could include trails and camping, according to Tabke’s group. Another plus is that the location is five miles south of Winter Park, the Vikings headquarters, and on the way to the team’s Mankato training camp. Many Vikings players live in Eden Prairie. The spot is also being sold as well-situated for fans. Some 40 percent of season-ticket holders live in the metro area, with the majority of them in the south or west metro. Although Arden Hills remains the team’s preferred site, Tabke said the Vikings are “excited” to have another plan in the mix. “We’re uniquely positioned to grow and develop around something this big, because we’ve already done it,” said Shakopee Chamber of Commerce President Angie Whitcomb.

FINANCING, TRANSPORTATION No state general fund dollars would be required to purchase the property because the land is so much cheaper than Arden Hills, Tabke said. The group is proposing that the stadium be fi nanced with user-based fees and taxes from a racino at Canterbury Park, in addition to funding from the Vikings. A third of the cost would be financed by football fans, including a $ 5 surcharge on Vikings tickets. No city money is included in the plan, with the state proposed to cover necessary highway improvements. S ome h ave que st ione d whether area highways, which can already become clogged with traffic during entertainment events in Shakopee, can handle the traffic for a Vikings game. A third lane on south High-

way 169, which ends south of the Bloomington Ferry Bridge, is proposed to be extended with the stadium proposal, and an exit ramp would need to be added from the southbound lane into the industrial park at Valley View Drive – which is also a straight shot to Valleyfair. The exit ramp idea was already studied as part of a past development proposal, called the Asian World Marketplace, for the ADC site, said Beard, who assisted with that failed 2008 project and has been able to contribute transportation studies from that proposal. He added that improvements to Canterbury Road would also be likely. The Shakopee site would also require the raising of the County Road 101 river crossing and making it four lanes, which is currently being looked at by the state anyway for flood mitigation purposes. Improvements to the south end of the Bloomington Ferry Bridge are also already being studied. Serendipitously, the proposal comes at the same time as major interchange improvements at Interstate Highway 494 and Highway 169, as well as Highway 13 and County Road 101 in Savage. Additionally, an interchange will go in at highways 13 and 5 in Burnsville next fall, which should further reduce traffic congestion on the Highway 13 corridor. Shakopee city leaders have been clued in and will be asked Tuesday, Jan. 17 to pass a resolution in support of the stadium proposal. Proponents say the city is the perfect place for Vikings fans to stay and play given all its other attractions. They believe Shakopee is fully capable of handling the Vikings too. “We do this every day and do it in our sleep. … To use the assets we are already have in place makes sense to me,” Beard said. “We have the infrastructure for 6 million [annual visitors]. To handle another 65,000 or 75,000 on Sunday afternoons in the fall is a piece of cake. ”

Polar Plunge fundraiser set for Feb. 18 Registration is now open for the Prior Lake Polar Bear Plunge, presented by Law Enforcement to benefit Special Olympics Minnesota. Fundraisers who are anxious to freeze for a reason can register online at www.plungemn.org. T hi s ye a r, P rior L a ke’s Plunge will be held at Sand Point Beach, beginning at noon on Saturday, Feb. 18. Last year, 289 people took the Plunge into Prior Lake, and raised more than $54,000, in support of Special Olympics Minnesota. Each year, thousands of brave and generous Minnesotans gather around the state,

to take a dip into many of Minnesota’s 10,000 frozen lakes. The Plunge raises money and awareness for Special Olympics Minnesota, and for all of the Special Olympics’ athletes who train and develop their skills year-round. Participants are asked to raise a minimum of $75 per Plunger, which goes toward the efforts of Special Olympics Minnesota, and its goal of increasing understanding of those with intellectual disabilities. The Polar Bear Plunge helps fund 7,100 athletes’ participation in more than 80 regional, area and state competitions.

Several team challenges are being held this year for corporations, restaurants, law enforcement and schools. In 2011, efforts by local law enforcement, through their Law Enforcement Torch Run, raised nearly $2.4 million for the Special Olympics’ athletes, and much of that fundraising was done during the Polar Plunge events around the state.

SLICE OF LIFE

Time to cull out the clutter It’s January, folks, and you know what that means – it’s time for the annual Clean out the Clutter campaign! Ah, no excuses. By now the Christmas cookies are eaten, the holiday decorations are all put away and we’ve rediscovered how to turn on the treadmill. And whether we’re running or cleaning, it’s going to hurt so good, so are you ready? Well, then, get set. And let’s THROW! Now, for you rookie clutter cleaner-outers, here’s what I like to do. I take three boxes and label one for things to throw away, one for things to give away, and one for things that need fixing. Then I open a closet door or venture down into the basement dumping grounds and get started. Be ruthless! Remember, January is the no-unused-object-leftbehind month. This year in my family, decluttering happens to be occurring on several different levels. My daughter, for example, has left in her collegiate wake multiple piles of flotsam including books, clothes, belts and shoes. This was in addition to other various debris fields that were never totally cleared from high school, so she has been dragged, kicking and screaming, into the basement to confront her clutter. “Let’s just work on this for 20 minutes,” I cajole each time I drag her downstairs. “After all, you know how to eat a pile of clutter, right? One box at a time.” I ignore the rolling of her eyes because my goal was to get through everything before she headed back to school; otherwise I knew I would be looking at her piles until Easter, or beyond. She filled the “throw away” and “give away” boxes, but then she also filled several more with things she couldn’t bear to part with but wasn’t taking back to Madison. Those we would stack up above in the garage rafters. “Just for a year or so,” I told my husband, but failed to mention that I was over 40 years old before I removed the last of my boxes from my parent’s attic space. Speaking of parents, my mom and dad are also de-cluttering. BIG time de-cluttering, as it were, because time has marched right up to their door and rattled its onerous chains. Soon they will be leaving the house they have lived in for over 50 years and moving to a senior apartment where there will be no room for hutches of fine china or long-forgotten boxes of fondue sets. During a recent tour of a typical apartment, it was glaringly obvious that even the largest hall closet didn’t have room for Boy Scout cook pots, wrench sets and other old friends that have collected dust on

the garage shelves for decades. Thus, my parents are slowly – often painfully – saying goodbye to accumulated possessions; some of them treasures, some of them junk, but most of them things that fall fondly in the middle. Even for experienced declutterers like my parents, this becomes a delicate balancing act. What does one do with the lazy Susan that was a wedding gift and came out for every party in the ‘70s and ‘80s? Or the photo album filled with fuzzy, faded pictures from a brother who died in the Korean War? And does anyone want the garden gnomes, the ones that basked under the rose bush for the last 20 years? Whereas my de-cluttering usually leaves me feeling exhilarated and tidy, what my parents are doing is more sobering. They are lightening their wagon’s load but – like pioneers along the Oregon Trail – they must resist the temptation to go back for treasures left behind as they continue moving on to life’s next stopping point. Saying goodbye to containers we never use, candles we never burn, books we never read. We fill boxes with things that used to define us, now they only remind us. We put knick knacks in the Goodwill box after a long look – the kind of look one gives the back of a neighbor’s moving truck. Goodbye. Have a great life in your new home. We made the most of the time we spent with you. So, my friends, let’s move out the clutter. Fill up the boxes. But, when you get to the pile of last year’s birthday cards or the homely porcelain dog with the broken tail that you’ve had since junior high, take a moment to say goodbye. Revisit those pleasant memories and treasure what you had. But then put them in the box and move on down the trail with a lighter load. After all, we know we will find even more wonderful things to put on our shelves as we travel round the next bend. (Karen Wheeler is a veterinarian who lives in Burnsville.

COMMUNITY VOICES

Is ‘Obamacare’ good for families or should the act be repealed? A major discussion has been whether “Obamacare”, also known as the Affordable Care Act, should be repealed. Let’s look at some of the issues that should be answered when determining whether Obamacare should be repealed. Obamacare allows young adults up to the age of 26 to be covered under their parents insurance if they cannot get coverage on their own. This has added healthcare coverage for about 2.5 million young adults so far. If the act is repealed, would the health insurance coverage be taken away from these young adults? What if those young adults now have pre-existing conditions and can’t get other coverage? Would repeal be good for families? When fully implemented in 2014, Obamacare will eliminate all discrimination against those with preexisting conditions and has already allowed more healthcare options for persons with pre-existing conditions. If Obamacare is repealed, will persons with health issues lose the coverage for those conditions? Will insurance companies again be free to drop coverage for persons with pre-existing conditions based on

technicalities? Will working families again lose their health care coverage and possibly be forced into bankruptcy when a family member gets sick or has an accident? Would repeal help American families? Under Obamacare, there are to be insurance exchanges in each state to help drop healthcare costs by providing competition. Is health insurance competition good for America and American families? Under Oba maca re, t here is a requirement that each American have access to and pay for insurance coverage, with the government pick-

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 Dec. 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 [day care provider] before providing him any significant level of infor-mation about the incident, Mr. Wagner, according to the Human Services’ employee, stated that he was not familiar with [day care provider].

ing up a portion of the cost for those that truly cannot afford all of the premiums. I don’t necessarily like this portion of the Act, but I also don’t like paying for the medical costs of others even though they have access to insurance. W hen the uninsured go to an emergency room and cannot pay or don’t pay because they decided not to get insurance, often the costs of that very expensive care is pushed to taxpayers or persons who have healthcare insurance. The repeal of Obamacare will push these costs back to taxpayers and persons who have healthcare coverage. Would this be good for families?

LETTERS FROM READERS PARKS

Picking up litter keeps our community great I wanted to write to say how much I love living in our Savage community. We moved here about eight years ago. We live close to O’Connell Park, and my family and I go to the park often. I walk our dogs every day through the park. Each spring, my children and I notice the trash that has accumulated over the winter and take the time to pick it up while we walk our dogs. We are usually carrying doggie poop bags anyway. I have noticed this winter with the lack of snow that there is a lot of trash around. My daughter and I were going for a walk with our dogs and were planning on doing a trash pick up, but most of it was gone! I have to believe some other caring neighbors helped clean up our community. Maybe it was city workers? A little food for thought: If you walk

around the park and your neighborhood, you can make a difference by picking up the litter or garbage. This is our community and I am proud of it! Keep in mind, as my children always say, “We only have one earth and we need to take care of it!” Isn’t that the truth!

Subsequent investigation has clearly established that statement is not consistent with the facts. Mr. Wagner and (day care provider) have been brotherand sister-in-law for about 18 years. Additionally, when (day care 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 (day care 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.

BURNSVILLE-EAGAN-SAVAGE SCHOOL DISTRICT

Supporting proposal to provide full-day kindergarten The five-year-old children who enter kindergarten next fall will graduate from high school in 2025. Any parent can tell you how quickly those years will pass and any educator can describe how much needs to be accomplished in just 13 years. Kindergarten is about providing children with a firm foundation upon which all future learning will be built. To ensure all children possess and develop the knowledge, skills and abilities needed to compete in a dynamic world requires maximizing their early learning years. That’s why I have recommended to our Board of Educa-

throughout their life,” said Clegg. Currently, the district provides a half-day kindergarten program paired with a feebased extended day program. The district is one of 134 in the state that doesn’t provide full-day kindergarten, while 207 other districts do in at least some of their schools. Clegg said the fee -based mo del le ad s to i ne qu a l it y among students and contributes to the achievement gap between students who come from different economic backgrounds. This school year, 43 percent of children from low-income homes are able to participate in the extended-day program. The program is run by Community Education, and Community Education Director Tom Umhoefer said his department would lose about $106,000 a year in revenue if the feebased program ended.

riculum. “It’s been challenging,” said Director of Curriculum Kathy Funston, “because we’ve been trying to create kind of a dual system: one that’s a half-day program and one that’s a fullday program. And in developing the full-day program, our challenge is how we develop a rigorous half-day program when we’re not promoting our students with the same level of skills.” Funston said that challenge doesn’t stop at ki nderga rten. She said that fi rst-grade teachers also face challenges in responding to the instructional and academic needs of students when “they’re coming to the class with such varied learning needs.” Funston said that having students that are more equally prepared by the time they reach elementary school will allow teachers to focus more on increasing student achievement. And as teachers are allowed to focus more on instruction and students who show up are more prepared, that will allow teachers to increase the rigor of the curriculum. As a resu lt, t he dist rict hopefully would see improved standardized test scores and students who are more prepared for higher education once they graduate high

Board members will consider the recommendation at their meeting on Jan. 19. This recommendation comes after careful consideration of the growing body of research demonstrating the importance of a child’s early learning years, extensive conversations with the district’s instructional leaders, and careful consideration of how to leverage the district’s limited fi nancial resources to improve overall student learning and attainment of the district’s achievement goals. Full-day kindergarten would allow more time for children to engage in developmentally-appropriate learning experiences

that foster their social-emotional learning, self-regulation, and facilitate their conceptual, cognitive and language development. Full-day kindergarten programs also provide teachers with more opportunities to diagnose the developmental needs of each individual child, providing them with the individual attention and support they need whether they are struggling or soaring. As critical as early learning has been shown to be to the future success of children, not all children living in this area are afforded the same early learning opportunities primarily as

a direct result of their family’s financial status. While some families are able to provide their children with expansive early learning experiences, a growing number of families are simply unable to do so. Some families can afford a fee-based full-day kindergarten program while others cannot. Enrollment in full-day kindergarten programs has increased steadily over the past 25 years with nearly two-thirds of all children in the U.S.A. attending a full- day, every day kindergarten program. Twenty-nine states (including Wisconsin, Iowa and South Dakota) support and fund all-

day kindergarten. Minnesota does not. I am recommending that we fund kindergarten by reallocating a portion of the compensatory revenue that we receive from the state based on the number of students who are eligible for free-and-reduced school meals. For the upcoming school year, our compensatory funds are estimated to reach $5.4 million while the estimated cost of a full-day kindergarten program will be $1.5 million. It’s a worthwhile investment. (Randy Clegg is superintendent of Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School District 191.)

school, which is one of the reasons Burnsville High School Principal Dave Helke said he supports the proposal, even though it would likely mean his school would receive fewer compensatory dollars than it currently does.

on the need. So are any other areas going to be overlooked or not as well served if we use this money for all-day kindergarten?” asked Board Treasurer Paula Teiken. Clegg explained that prog ra m s f u nde d by comp ensatory dollars are typically always in flux as educators are constantly evaluating which programs receive the most “bang for your buck.” He also said that the cost of full-day kindergarten compared to the compensatory dollars they have available means that it would have minimal impact on other programs. Board Clerk Jim Schmid also had some concerns about the use of compensatory revenues. “I, too, have a concern about exchanging interventionists, which serve a purpose, for full-time new kindergarten teachers,” said Schmid. “Did we consider administration reductions, class size considerations and other kinds of funding mechanisms?” C le g g t old S ch m id t h at because nea rly ha l f of the district’s kindergarten-age students are the ones actually generating this money by being free-or-reduced-price eligible, it only makes sense to spend that money on them. “This is a very appropriate use of those dollars,” said Clegg.

Director Dan Luth asked what kind of start-up costs the district is looking at in implementing full-day kindergarten, in addition to the approximately $1.5 million annual cost. Jon Deutsch, director of operations and properties, said a large portion of the start-up costs would come from redesigning or repurposing rooms in the elementary buildings to accommodate three or four kindergarten classrooms, as well as determining the specific needs in those rooms. Deutsch didn’t have a dollar fi gure ready for the Board, but said he didn’t anticipate the costs “being that significant,” and offered to figure out a ballpark number to give the Board. Schmid also asked when the “drop-dead” date is for making a decision on the full-day kindergarten issue to have the program ready by the beginning of the next school year. “From our perspective, the sooner the better,” said Clegg, who noted that the sooner a decision is made, the sooner parents can start planning for whether or not they need to fi nd a way to pay for the feebased program. A f i rst round of kindergarten open houses was held at the district’s elementary

schools this past week, but registration is being held off until a decision is made by the Board. Toward the end of the meeting, several Board members said they wanted to make sure that taxpayers understood that bringing back full-day kindergarten would have nothing to do with the recent renewal of a roughly $10 million operational levy. Board Vice-Chairwoman Sandy Sweep said she agreed w it h C om mu n ic at ion s Director Ruth Dunn’s plan to explain it as a reallocation of funds, “As long as the public knows that this is not tied to the levy, and is compensatory funding, rather than us just magically changing money from one pot to the next.” Luth said he was also excited about the proposal, but that he wanted to make sure there isn’t a repeat of the 20032004 experiment. “Having been part of this board six, seven years ago when we implemented all-day, every-day kindergarten for a year, but were unfortunately not able to sustain that … I just really want to make sure it sticks this time,” said Luth. The School Board will consider Clegg’s recommendation for full-day kindergarten at its next meeting on Jan. 19.

FUNDING QUESTIONS A large chunk of the approximately $1.5 million needed annually to fund full-day kindergarten would go towards staffing more teachers. There are 15 full-day kindergarten sections and 19 half-day sections right now requiring a total of 24.5 full-time equivalent positions. If full-day kindergarten were implemented, there would be 33 sections and a need for 33 full-time equivalent positions. It’s expected that three elementary schools would have four sections of kindergarten, and that the remaining seven would have three sections. While the Board members all agreed upon the importance and need for a full-day kindergarten program, some had questions about the use of compensatory funds, how the use of those funds might affect other programs and the initial cost projections of its implementation. “It would appear to me that what we’re receiving [in compensatory revenue] is based

Greg lost nearly 34 pounds total, going from just over 324 pounds to 290 in the five-week period. Plus, as he acknowledges, he didn’t even stay on the program toward the end as diligently as he had at the beginning, and yet he still lost weight.

ANONYMOUS, 59

Groundbreaking weight-loss study now open to public LifeForce Family Chiropractic in Savage is in the process of revolutionizing the world of diet and exercise through its five-week program. For example, Greg. I of Bloomington lost more than 33 pounds in five weeks. Angela G. of Savage dropped 20 pounds. Brandon J. went from a size 38 waist to a 34 and lost 32 pounds in just five weeks. One individual who wished to remain anonymous lost 46.5 pounds in five weeks. These individuals and others achieved these impressive results through participating in a weightloss study being conducted by Chiropractor Dr. Wade A. Lofton, who is the founder and CEO of LifeForce Family Chiropractic (LFFC) in Savage. As the new year dawns, you may be thinking about starting still another new diet or fitness routine. Well, you may want to consider being a part of Dr. Lofton’s weight-loss study, a five-week program that involves eating foods and nutritional supplements recommended by Dr. Lofton, and having health indicators such as body fat and skeletal muscle monitored weekly at LFFC. For the fi rst time, Dr. Lofton and LFFC are opening up the study, which Dr. Lofton has been conducting for the past three years, to the general public. In the past, he has limited participation to his own clinic’s patients. Dr. Lofton explains that his practice, which opened in 2005, is a neurological based facility focusing on getting to the cause of health related problems. As a fact sheet about the clinic states, LFFC works to keep “the neurological connections between the brain and the body functioning at 100 percent.” This approach retrains your central nervous system, and has been a technique that has been featured in Psychology Today, on the Health Discovery Channel, and in various

scientific and medical journals. Along these lines, Dr. Lofton’s weight-loss study and program is also neurologically based; tricking the brain to think it is full while burning all excess fat and calories stored in the body. In addition, Dr. Lofton says, it is Biblically based. “The program is based partly on a concept that is talked about in the Old Testament, doing things that God told his people to do to be healthy and strong,” Dr. Lofton says.

HOW IT WORKS The program is fairly simple. Participants get a list of recommended foods to eat, along with three nutritional supplements. Then, a baseline reading of several indicators is taken of each individual’s status starting out: the person’s initial weight, body fats, visceral fats—“the fats around organs that predispose you to early death,” Dr. Lofton explains—skeletal muscle, BMI (Body Mass Index) and resting metabolism.

system, brain, and body, making the person’s brain think that he or she is full and satisfied. Dr. Lofton believes that most weight loss programs don’t work because “they never address the underlying neurological problem.” For now, the program is actually conducted in the form of a research study because Dr. Lofton’s ultimate goal is to patent this program and then offer it nationwide. BEFORE

In the three years of the study, the minimal weight loss reported has been 16 pounds in five weeks. Most results are well over that with everyone, but 1 participant, losing at least 20 pounds in the five week period.

WHY IT WORKS Why does it work? The program, according to Dr. Lofton, is designed to release certain neurotransmitters or chemicals within the nervous

--Blood sugar levels normalized for the first time in five years --He was able to reduce the dosage of three heart medications --Kidney functions were also normalized, which was especially important, given that his doctors were about to put him on kidney dialysis. --Total weight loss: He went from 349 pounds to 302.5 pounds—46.5 pounds lost in five weeks.

ANGELA G., 41, SAVAGE The program works for both men and women. Case in point is Angela, who lost 20 pounds by participating in the weight-loss study program.

BRANDON J., 28, PLYMOUTH Brandon (pictured at left before and after), says that he had been doing other weight-loss programs, both diets and exercise routines, but “I just wasn’t getting the results I wanted,” and felt “I had reached a plateau.” He had dropped 20 pounds but wanted to lose an additional 20.

Then, each week for five weeks, each individual participant visits the clinic to have all of these indicators monitored. The program allows participants to eat “as much as you want” of the recommended foods, Dr. Lofton explains, along with the nutritional supplements.

He did not “starve” himself and ate as much as he wanted to eat from the list of recommended foods. His results were impressive:

AFTER

So, he participated in LFFC’s study program and lost 32 pounds in five weeks. The best part: he lost body fat AND visceral fat and gained skeletal muscle without exercise. For example, in five weeks, his body fat percentage dropped from 34.8 to 31.1, his visceral fat level decreased from 14 to 11, and his skeletal muscle percentage increased, from 30.9 to 33. “This is significant,” says Dr. Lofton, because Brandon lost weight and fat, while increasing his skeletal muscle mass. “That’s why we monitor all of these indicators each week, to make sure you are losing weight in the areas that need to be reduced and not skeletal muscle.” He added, “Anyone can lose body weight on a scale, but the question is this: are they losing or gaining skeletal muscle mass.” As mentioned, Brandon also went from a 38 to a 34 waist size without exercise.

Teachers receive 1-percent increase BY MERYN FLUKER mfluker@swpub.com

Teachers in the Prior LakeSavage Area School District will get a 1-percent raise in 2012-13, but no increase for the current school year, under an agreement approved by the School Board on Monday. The collective bargaining agreement with the Prior LakeSavage Education Association, the local teachers’ union, will go into effect retroactively beginning July 1, 2011. Teachers will receive pay commensurate with what would have accompanied their “steps and lanes,” the terms used for tenure and advanced coursework that determine teacher salary increases. As teachers stay in school districts longer and work toward graduate degrees, their salaries grow – unless frozen through a collective bargaining agreement. The contract’s first year means an added cost of $460,107 for District 719, averaging out to an extra $1,125 per teacher. The second year of the tentative agreement, which the union ratified with 92-percent support on Dec. 14, includes a 1-percent

The teachers’ union is currently the only district employee group set to receive raises in 2012-13, because the teachers are the only staff members with settled contracts for that year – save for Superintendent Sue Ann Gruver, who does not have a pay increase and has opted not to accept her last three annual bonuses. Salaries are the district’s largest expense, accounting for 60 percent of the expenditure budget. In second place are benefits, which represent 23 percent of district expenditures this fiscal year. As the district begins to negotiate contracts with other employee groups, the teachers’ agreement will play a part. “Typically, as the largest employee group in the district, it does impact negotiations with other employee groups,” Mons said. Boa rd Chai r woma n L ee Shimek, a member of the board’s negotiations committee, was directly involved in the discussions between the district and the teachers’ union. “This was probably the most productive, most efficient negotiations process we’ve gone through,” she said.

Saturday, Jan. 21. The event will include youth, junior varsity and varsity games at the Dakotah Ice Arena, 2100 Trail of Dreams, Prior Lake. There will also be a silent auction, a raffle to win $250 and vendor booths featuring hair feathers, customized jewelry and Laker sports apparel.

Kilian found the solution to unlocking his potential.

“We wish we had known about LearningRx years ago. Cognitive brain training was the solution that moved Kilian from struggling to amazing.” —Kilian’s mom, Anne, Woodbury, MN

From kindergarten on, Kilian struggled with academic and behavioral challenges. Calls from school relayed a consistent theme: Kilian is unfocused and disorganized, does not put forth effort, scores inconsistently on tests, misses assignments, and is not living up to his potential. Years of trying harder, medication, tutoring, counseling, teacher conferences, resulted in limited, temporary improvements. “With Kilian beginning high school, solving his academic challenges became crucial,” says Jeff, Kilian’s dad. Through the brain-training program at LearningRx in Eagan, Kilian’s “untrained” brain became fit and efficient. Test results showed huge improvement, while Kilian demonstrated success in the classroom and on his report card. In just a few months, Kilian went from barely getting by to earning an academic letter by June of his freshman year!

Find out what’s holding your child back. Get to the root cause of your child’s struggles to focus, think, and learn. With amazing results, our proven program strengthens the key parts of the brain that help students learn and read better.

Women often aren’t able to go to school and must walk many miles to get water for their families. “Compared to what we see as middle class in America, it’s really eye opening,” said senior Alex Angelo of Savage. She was among the last people in the blue group to eat, because of her gender. The green tables represented lowincome people throughout the world with annual incomes of $986 or less. They did not receive utensils and their tables were bare, save for green placards. “I’m still hungry,” said junior Nayana Batham of Prior Lake, who was seated at a green table and fi nished her meal quickly. She compared her situation to the real predicament that malnourished people abroad face. “We can go places, like, we can just pull up to a drive through and get something even though it’s fattening. That sounds so good right now.” Korby shared the story of another student in the green group, who complained that the portion of rice and water was “not a meal,” even though Korby had promised that everyone who attended would be fed a meal. “For most places in the world, this is considered a meal,” Korby countered. Korby and her Advanced Placement counterpart Sam Steinberg hosted the dinner alongside Cara Rieckenberg, the district’s environmental education coordinator. The trio decided to hold the event as a way to make the ideas their classes are exploring resonate with students. Their current unit focuses on how food impacts physical health and how the way in which food is produced affects the environment. Attendees saw a short video from Oxfam America, a group devoted to combating worldwide hunger and poverty, before watching a video message from KARE-11 meteorologist Sven Sundgaard, which he fi lmed in Rio de Janeiro expressly for Monday’s event. Korby and Steinberg read from an Oxfam America script, detailing the

Some students were singled out and, due to their scenarios’ circumstances, moved up or down from lower class to middle class or vice versa. After they dined, Korby, Steinberg and Rieckenberg shared a few additional words before opening a forum up for students. Many students talked about the shock of being confronted with not having enough to eat. Others spoke of their past encounters with poverty abroad and even in Minnesota.

As the evening wound down, students pledged to take action against world hunger – a continuing theme in the environmental science classes at the high school. Before winter break, students raised $1,000 for Heifer International, a group devoted to supplying livestock to people in poverty as a sustainable to solution to the world hunger crisis. “What you’ve done tonight may not feel like action,” Steinberg said, “but you’ve taken a step toward awareness.”

Shakopee to open its own area learning center BY KRISTIN HOLTZ kholtz@swpub.com

The Shakopee School Board voted Monday, Jan. 9 to form a district committee to plan for a Shakopee Area Learning Center. School administration will notify the Carver-Scott Educational Cooperative (CSEC) of its plans to end its area learning center agreement and form its own ALC. The board began talking about forming its own ALC in December after being notified that Eastern Carver County District 112 and Waconia School District plan to withdraw from the CSEC, which runs four alternative learning centers. One of the primary reasons the board voted to withdraw now was that it would give the district a wider pool of CSEC employees from which to hire. Per state law, cooperative members’ districts must offer positions to cooperative employees when their program is eliminated due to its withdrawal. Board member Steve Schneider said the board has a window of opportunity where it can choose which staff to bring over instead “of what’s leftover,” he said. With less than nine months until the start of the 2012-13,

Shakopee is working on a tight deadline, Superintendent Rod Thompson acknowledged. However, he’s hoping to draw on Shakopee High School Principal Kim Swift’s experience. Swift was an ALC principal for seven years in Dubuque, Iowa. Building off the district’s Project Lead the Way reputation, Board member Mary Romansky suggested a possible Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) theme for the Shakopee Alternative Learning Center. District 112 is set to open its ALC in fall 2012. The center, which will have an arts focus, could have anywhere from 70 to 100 students, Eastern Carver County officials have estimated. For the Shakopee ALC to break even, it would need between 35 and 40 students, Thompson said. He has no doubt the school will attract that many students considering Shakopee currently sends 40 students to the CSEC centers. Thompson said he’s more concerned that the school’s enrollment would double projections, which would defeat the small-school purpose. Board member Angela Tucker said she’s pleased to see Shakopee’s students returning back to the district. Schneider

More Online Shakopee is currently a member of the Carver-Scott Educational Cooperative, which provides programs and services like online learning, special education, and career and technical education to complement local school district offerings. The CSEC recently went into statutory operating debt – running $1 million in the red. Read the story at www. savagepacer.com, keyword search CSEC. added that it will also provide students with more choice to pick an alternative program that’s right for them. The district planning committee will consider lease options for the Shakopee ALC since the district will not have any buildings available next fall, Thompson said. Also, best practice recommends setting up ALCs outside the traditional school building, Thompson said. “You want to create an environment where students who learn differently or alternatively can be successful together out of a traditional site,” he said.

Student expelled from Prior Lake High School The Prior Lake-Savage Area School Board approved the expulsion of a Prior Lake High School junior on Monday, Jan. 9. The young man will be expelled for a full calendar year due to violating District 719’s student zero-tolerance chemical policy. Meryn Fluker

Boundaries set for Village Commons The Prior Lake-Savage Area School Board decided Monday,

Jan. 9 that the children who live in the Village Commons development in Savage will attend WestWood Elementary School. Ground has not yet been broken for the new development, which will be located in Savage near the intersection of County Road 42 and Highway 13, behind Rainbow Foods. Once it is complete, it is estimated that Village Commons will contain 92 individual housing units. Without district intervention, the development’s students would attend Glendale Elementary School. Because Glendale is the district’s largest elementary school, and WestWood is one of the district’s smallest schools –

currently operating at approximately 200 students under capacity – administrators opted to include that development within the WestWood boundary. Village Commons residents with students in half-day kindergarten will attend the a.m. sessions at Edgewood School. The boundary addition will not impact any current district students. Ron Clark, the land owner and developer for the Village Commons project, anticipates that the townhomes will be available for rental in the fall of 2013 and the apartments will be available for rental in the spring of 2014.

TRAVEL

Five hot tipss for cool tripss 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.

A man from Savage convicted of holding down and strangling his wife in their upstairs bedroom in July was sentenced in Scott County District Court last week to two years of probation. Michael Anthony Trudeau, 48, pleaded guilty to felony domestic assault by strangulation in October. Trudeau also received a stayed sentence of 364 days in County jail, meaning that he will not have to serve that time if he doesn’t violate his probation. Under the terms of his probation, Trudeau must undergo counseling, anger management and continue regular participation in therapy through the Department of Veterans Affairs. He must also continue to take his medication regularly and remain law-abiding. According to the criminal complaint, Savage police were called to the police station just

Trudeau’s wife retreated to a bedroom where she lay on her back on the bed. Trudeau entered the room and sat on the edge of the bed. His wife told police she must have

drug case, the judge wrote in his memorandum. The heroin involved in the Jan. 3 case was confiscated from an alleged safe house on Queen Avenue in Shakopee in early December and, according to Ciliberto, carried a street value of more than $600,000. The 24-year-old defendant, Armando Diaz-Gomez, in that case is being held on $2 million bail for one first-degree charge of selling heroin. Law enforcement officials believe Riera has ties to the same drug cartel as Gomez. “This is the first occasion in which we’ve had such an incident occur involving a major drug case,” Ciliberto said. After Riera left the courtroom Thursday morning, Stacey lamented cartel activity to those who remained. “The quality is high, the price is low and people are dying ...” the judge said. “Be careful out there!”

A 35-year-old Minneapolis man with alleged ties to a criminal organization was brought before Judge Rex Stacey Thursday, Jan. 5 for videotaping people in the courtroom. Lauro Vincente Riera used his T-Mobile cell phone to film court personnel, people in the courtroom and county attorney staff during a major drug hearing on Jan. 3, said Scott County Attorney Pat Ciliberto, who assigned himself to the follow-up hearing. Riera reportedly did the videotaping in view of Judge Stacey. Riera’s cell phone number was found in narcotics investigations and there’s evidence he was sent to Scott County to gather information on court personnel involved in the Jan. 3 heroin case, Ciliberto told the judge. Riera’s court-appointed attorney, Kevin Wetherille, responded

that Riera had no ill-intent by recording.

A Spring Lake Township man is accused of repeatedly beating a guest at his house in the head when he saw the man in a bedroom with his mother in the early hours of New Year’s Day. Michael James Cheesman, 19, has been charged with felony third-degree assault, felony fi rst-degree property damage and fifth-degree assault as a result of the incident. According to the complaint, the guest was staying with Cheesman and his mother at their house in the 5500 block of Winkler Lane on New Year’s Eve. Cheesman’s mother allegedly provided hard liquor to the two men that night. At one point early in the morning, the mother invit-

ed the g uest into her bedroom to “help her make the bed.” Cheesman eventua l ly entered the room and became infur i ate d when h e s a w t h e Michael James guest with his Cheesman mother in her bed room, even t hough t he guest denied kissing or engaging in any sexual conduct with the mother. The g uest saw an object in Cheesman’s hand that appeared to be a tire iron or crowbar, then was allegedly struck several times in the face and head with either the object or Cheesman’s fists, leaving him with several noticeable injuries and lacerations to his face.

The guest attempted to flee the house but was followed out by Cheesman, who allegedly threatened to break his kneecaps and kill him. While outside, Cheesman allegedly swung the object at the guest, then used the object to break all of the windows on the guest’s SUV, as well as the vehicle’s taillights and a front head lamp. The cost of the damage was estimated at $2,000. Cheesman allegedly admitted to authorities that he confronted the guest while he was in his mother’s bedroom and punched him in the face and head repeatedly. He said that he grabbed a golf club and struck the guest’s vehicle with it, but denied ever hitting the guest with the club. Cheesman has an omnibus hearing scheduled for Jan. 19 in Scott County District Court.

Program. The program is a joint effort by the City, health professionals, school officials, businesses and vendors in an effort to eliminate illegal sales of alcohol and tobacco to youth. City of Savage ordinance outlines a $1,000 fi ne and training for all staff as consequences of failing an alcohol compliance check. Amy Lyon

centration reported was 0.39. Twenty agencies reported that their highest alcohol concentration in an arrest was at or above 0.30, and more than 100 agencies reported that their highest alcohol concentration was at or above 0.20. The legal limit is 0.08. Locally, Savage had 12 arrests with the highest BAC being .28; Prior Lake had seven arrests with the highest BAC being .23 ; Shakopee had 10 arrests with the highest BAC being .28; and the Scott County Sheriff’s Office had five arrests with the highest BAC being .21. In Minnesota, one in seven drivers has a DWI on record. In 2010, 29,918 motorists were arrested for DWI. “The consequences of a DWI are harsh for a good reason,” says Lt. Eric Roeske of the State Patrol. “Drunk driving results in hundreds of deaths and injuries each year.”

BRIEFS

Davanni’s fined $1,000 and training The Savage City Council voted unanimously Jan. 9 to fine Davanni’s $1,000 and to require mandatory training for all staff after an employee sold alcohol to a minor during a Dec. 7 compliance check. This is the fi rst violation for the restaurant, located at 14125 Highway 13, which has been open since 2003. “Our policies and training were not demonstrated by the employee who was at fault,” said Davanni’s Manager Beth Nelson. “The sad aspect is that she actually looked at the license, but failed to examine it appropriately.” Savage Police Chief Rodney Seurer said the police department is in the process of providing training to Davanni’s employees through its Best Practices Compliance

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.

‘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 h eve of their 25th wedding anniversary, which catapults Mary onto a path of tremendous self-discovery and personal g rowth. The premise sounds sad and it is. However, it is exciting and wonderful to watch Mary’s metamorphosis as the story unfolds. I fell in love with Mary Gooch – her courage, her strength and her humanity. I hated to see the story end!

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

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

‘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: e 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.

‘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 Crowy ley 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.

‘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.

‘Chief Joseph and the Flight of the Nez Perce’ by Kent Nerburn

Kate Wagner Best book I read in 2011: “Chief Age 14 Joseph and the Flight of the Nez Student at St. Michael’s School Perce,” by Min-in Prior Lake nesota authorr

Joyce Goff “State of Wonder” and it is partially Savage set in Eden Prairie, Minn. But an-

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 Free-dom,” the au-tobiography off 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.

‘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.

Back on the floor Blazettes have traditionally been at their best in February BY TOM SCHARDIN tschardin@swpub.com

Prior Lake senior Kyle Robrock hopes to finish his stellar career in style in early March, which would be winning 100-yard backstroke state title.

Prior Lake senior Kyle Robrock has established himself as an elite talent, but can he end his career with a state title?

Going for gold BY TOM SCHARDIN tschardin@swpub.com

Kyle Robrock has already established himself as one of the elite swimmers in the state. But can the Prior Lake senior close out his stellar career in style – by winning a Class AA state title or two. Robrock’s best chance looks to be in the 100-yard backstroke where he finished second last year. He also tied for seventh in the 50 freestyle. Robrock set the school record in the 100 back last year at state (50.20 seconds) and tied the school mark in the 50 free (21.54). In his final attempt at state (assuming he gets there, although he’s already swimming under the state cuts), he’ll try to become only the second Prior Lake swimmer to win a state title. Chris Baker won the 50 freestyle and 100 breaststroke in 1984. “Kyle has always been a strong swimmer, but has really become a strong leader the last two years,” said Lakers coach Justin Haycraft. “He’s extremely versatile and every year we have to decide which event he should choose as his second event for sections and hopefully state.

“(Robrock’s) drive and focus rubs off on the other athletes in the pool.” Justin Haycraft Lakers coach “His goals this year are to get as many of the records as he can, achieve a state championship or two, finalize college plans and earn a trip to the Olympic trials,” added Haycraft. Robrock hasn’t made a college choice yet, but Haycraft said there are some Division I programs he’s looking at – Minnesota, Iowa, Wyoming and Denver. In his first season with the Lakers, Robrock got a taste of the state meet competion on Prior Lake’s 200 medley relay that finished 13th. As a sophomore, he earned a state berth in an individual event for the first time, finishing eighth in the 100 backstroke and 12th in the 100 freestyle. He was also on the 200 medley relay again that finished 10th. But it was last year when Robrock really broke through.

He also swam the backstroke leg on the 200 medley relay for a third straight year at state, finishing 10th again. He teamed with Alex Jenness, Marshall Hekin and Matthew Wright and they own the school record (1:40.01). Robrock will have some competition in the 100 backstroke this year. Finishing third at state last year was junior Sean Wegerson of Maple Grove and fourth was sophomore Nikita Dolin of Rochester Century. Robrock also has two younger brothers on the Lakers – sophomore Alec Robrock and eighth-grader Craig Robrock. Haycraft’s team is loaded with a lot of underclassmen. There are only six seniors on the team, so Robrock’s leadership and mentorship of the younger swimmers – as well as his brothers – has also been a bonus. “His drive and focus rubs off on the other athletes in the pool,” said Haycraft. “The younger athletes see how talented he is and are envious of what he can do. In practice, he trains with Marshall, Jenness, (senior) Zach Kleist and sometimes (ninth-grader) Paul Hescott and Craig. They train at a more intense level to

Prior Lake senior Kyle Robrock owns the school record in both the 100 backstroke and the 50 freestyle. keep up with him.” To qualify for the Olympic Trials, Robrock needs to swim the 100-meter backstroke (not yards) in 57.59. Robrock’s state time last year of 50.20 was achieved on what USA Swimming calls SCY (short course yards). LCMs (long course meters) are used at the trials and Olympic Games. The average conversion from yards to meters in 100 events is about eight seconds, so Robrock’s is already fairly close to the qualifying time The Olympic Trials will be held in Omaha, Neb starting June 25 and ending July 2.

The Burnsville dance team traditionally seems to save its best for last. Will it be that away again in February for the Blazettes? Can the perennial state power erase last year’s disappointment of not qualifying for state in high kick for the first time in its 35-year history? Don’t bet on the Blazettes falling short of state again. They’ll be one of the favorites in Section 1AAA, along with their biggest rival, Eastview. The section meet is set for Feb. 11 at Bloomington Kennedy. The jazz funk meet is also set for that day. Eastview is the defending state champion in high kick and also won the South Suburban Conference Championship this year back on Dec. 17. The top-three teams at sections qualify for state in both high kick and jazz funk. Apple Valley is also a perennial power. Between East view a nd Bu r nsvi l le, the two power programs have combined to win 10 of the last 12 high kick state titles. So a winning tradition is on both team’s side. “The Blazettes have been around for so many years and for whatever reason people generally want to see us succeed,” said fi rst-year Blazettes coach Anna Lardy. “Our team has a strong tradition of success and the girls coming on to the team are very aware of the traditions this team has and the pride that we have in our program. “Every year, I’m amazed by how hard these girls work to make this team and then how hard they push themselves to be successful,” added Lardy. Lardy is a former Blazette, who has been on a couple state championship teams herself. So she knows what it takes to win. Burnsville, led by its seniors, A lana Larson, A lex Pearson, Lexi Wahl, Katherine Kashevatsky and Rachel Sawdy, fi nished second overall in the conference championships, taking second to Eastview in high kick and third in jazz funk. Traditionally, the second half of the Blazettes’ season has been geared toward creating an entirely new dance for sections. The team has two invites before sections to perform it starting Saturday, Jan. 21 at Wayzata and again Jan. 28 at Eastview. The team logs many hours of practice. Lardy said they go two and half hours a day five days a week, and there are Saturday

www.scoreboard.mn practices when there are no competitions. “We also try to get to the weight room during the season before practice,” said Lardy. “So a lot of days they are there dancing and lifting for three hours a day.” Burnsville is in a tough section which also includes Apple Valley, Bloomington, Farmington, Lakeville North, Lakeville South, Prior Lake, Rochester Century, Rochester John Marshall, Rochester Mayo, Rosemount and Northfield. So getting one of the top three spots to earn a state berth won’t be easy, no matter how great the Blazettes’ tradition is. The team learned that a year ago. Burnsville did get to state in jazz funk last year, finishing eighth. It was the seventh time the program had qualified, including the last six years. The Blazettes’ last state title in high kick was back in 2008. The program was second the three previous years (20052007). This year’s Class AAA state meet is set for Feb. 17-18 at the Target Center in Minneapolis. Jazz funk is held the first day, followed by high kick on the second day.

LAKERS The Prior Lake dance team will be back on the floor Jan. 21 at the Lakeville South Invitational and will have one more meet after that before sections. Prior Lake, led by seniors Ali Ruba, Danai Hennen, Jordyn Sammis and Kristy Bowman, will be the host of its own invite Jan. 28.

Don’t blink or you could miss the stretch run of the Alpine ski season. It comes and goes that fast after the New Year. And both Burnsville teams are gearing up for the stretch run. The Blaze boys are looking to make it back to state for a second straight year with hopes on improving on last year’s fi fth-place fi nish. The Blaze girls are hoping to join the state party, or at least qualify one or more individuals. This year’s Alpine state meet is set for Feb. 15 at its annual site, Giants Ridge in Biwabik.

T homas Academy won t he boys’ crown last year for the third straight year. Burnsville had just one competition before the New Year, competing at Buck Hi l l in Burnsville back on Dec. 20. The Blaze has three meets at Buck Hill left (Jan. 17, 26 and 31) and then it’s time for the Section 6 race. Again, the season comes and goes that fast – with or without snow. Last year, Burnsville coach Derek Nash was named Coach of the Year by the Minnesota State Alpine Coaches Association. He has four skiers back from last year who competed at state – seniors Jordan Huus and Jimmy Coyne, junior Tom Flickinger and ninth-grader Jon Garbe.

There’s also other talent Nash can rely on in seniors Shane O’Connor, Nick Doble and Mike Furney, sophomore Sam Anderson, ninth-grader Stefan Remund, eighth-graders Jacob Baker and Alex Meehan and seventh-graders Jack Lindsay, Jacob Allen, Mason Young and Wesley Remund. Burnsville was second in the 20-team section field last year behind Edina. The top two teams qualify. The field is always pretty strong to include: Apple Valley, Blooming ton Jefferson, Bloomington Kennedy, Chanhassen, Chaska, Crystal Valley Area, Eastview, Eden Prairie, Lakeville North, L a kevi l le Sout h, M a n kato West, Mankato West, Northfield, Rochester Century, Roch-

ester John Marshall, Rochester Mayo, Rochester Lourdes, Rosemount, Prior Lake and Shakopee. Meanwhile, the girls’ field consists of the same teams. Edina and Jefferson were the state qualifying teams last year, while the Blaze ended up eighth. The Burnsville girls also have a new coach in Luke Abrahamson, a former Blaze skier who graduated in 2008. He was an assistant coach last year for the Visitation girls team. “I’m ecstatic to be back with my old team,” said Abrahamson. “Through high school, skiing defi ned who I was and this team was a big part of my

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 Department of Natural Resources (DNR). “Ice thickness guidelines become unreliable once the temp gets above 32 degrees,” according to Lt. Cory Palmer, enforcement supervisor for the DNR. “Snowmobiles, ATVs and other vehicles should stay off the ice until temps drop below 32 degrees for at least 24 hours.” Even if the ice seems thick enough, temperature 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.

This year, we hope to have some all-conference racers as well. “We are also looking to send

someone to state again,” added Everson. “It’s been a couple of years since Prior Lake sent a state competitor. The last Laker skier to compete at the state competition was Lindsay Hutchinson in 2010. This year’s Prior Lake boys’ captain is Grant Schipper, the only senior among the two squads. The girls’ captain is junior Abbey Everson. She was the Lakers’ top finisher at sections last year, fi nishing 37th out of 105 competitors. Other skiers for the girls team include: sophomores Karlie Chase, Katie Jondal and Delaney Sharratt, ninthgrader Charlee Skare,, eighthgraders Allie Zoeller, Sara Gilbert and Alex Schult and seventh-graders Maddy Bonner, Piper Gilpatric and Sidney McCue.

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

indoors

BY RICHARD CRAWFORD editor@chanvillager.com

M

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

High school’s one-act plays span the spectrum BY MERYN FLUKER mfluker@swpub.com

In the past, Prior Lake High School’s one-act play festival has showcased three starkly different shows. While this year’s selections are radically different in terms of execution, context and content, they are all variations on a theme: what happens when life doesn’t go as planned? Audiences can see for themselves at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Jan 20 and Saturday, Jan. 21 in the auditorium at the high school, 7575 150th St., Savage. Admission is $10 for adults and $7 for students. Directors Karina Nelsen, Jennifer Witt and the duo of Maddie Anderson and Andi Heither, found their one-act plays independently. There was no conscious effort to string the night’s entries together thematically. Witt – who is once again calling the shots for the school’s competition show, “The Brick and the Rose” – chose her play in part because it seemed unlike anything else she’d read. “What struck me about the show was the uniqueness,” she said. “One acts are a dime a dozen. You can find a wide variety of shows.” The result is a “very nontraditional” production, down to its staging. “The Brick and the Rose” features 10 actors each sitting on a stool. Their movement is restricted from the waist down, and their heads bob up and down as the students inhabit different characters. Between the show’s 10 performers, they portray 46 different urban individuals – from a sly drug dealer to a concerned mother to gang members and drunks – creating a dramatic aural collage, accompanied by images projected behind the actors.

“We are going to be judged based solely on how well we portray these characters vocally,” Witt recalled telling her actors. “If that isn’t down pat, then they’re judging us based on how well we can read a script, essentially.” The show, which focuses on a young man’s descent into drug addiction, is a large departure for both Witt and her cast members – half of whom have never acted in the school’s one acts before. “The Brick and the Rose” is deceptively simple, the lack of movement, minimal set design and lack of costume changes all create hurdles for the actors. “It’s definitely a different kind of challenge,” Witt said. “It focuses solely on their vocal work … It has to be believable. It has to be genuine and authentic.” The students must act against each other without facing each other, instead staring ahead into the audience while still reacting to the rest of the cast. The show’s blend of characters spans the moral spectrum – from priests to prostitutes, literally – and the actors alter their vocal pitch and tones, even adopting accents, to make each of the 46 players unique. Though the show is a departure, Witt is hoping it will boost the school’s chances when competition begins with subsections on Friday, Jan. 27. The school has struggled, falling in the first round for the last three years. PLHS is in a new subsection this year, competing against Eastview, Lakeville North and South and Farmington high schools in the first round. Witt isn’t shy about her desire to succeed and hopefully move on to the section and state competitions. She said she anticipates Eastview will be Prior Lake’s strongest challenger.

“The uniqueness of the show, if it’s done right, will help us in competition,” Witt said. “I feel like our odds are good.”

‘EPIC FAIL’ Though not dealing with subject matter as stark as drug addiction, “Epic Fail” still deals with some sensitive territory. Nelsen, an English teacher at the high school, drew from her own experiences to direct the series of teen-tuned vignettes that make up the single-act show. “I am always amazed at the kind of risk students take to put themselves out there in a way adults don’t have to,” Nelsen said. Taking a note from Nathaniel Hawthorne’s classic, the stars of “Epic Fail” are branded with bright red Fs, to denote their failure. Once again, Nelsen’s interactions with her students played a role in her direction. “As a teacher, I’m working with students to remove those self-imposed labels,” she said. “I think it’s human nature to label ourselves.” “Epic Fail” features characters as they strike out in their own scenarios. One student fails an exam, another struggles to ask a boy out and another experiences the worst driver’s test imaginable. The production demands some adventurousness from its cast and director, because some of the actors play inanimate objects, including carrots, a milk carton and a brake pedal. In her direction, Nelsen turned the show’s chorus into more of a Greek chorus, emphasizing something she sees a lot in her students. “We don’t create worlds for kids to fail privately,” she said. The chorus, Nelsen said, acts as the play’s eyes. It’s a stark contrast to the spirit of the one-acts, which Nelsen said

PET OF THE WEEK I’m a playful, mostly white female who was born in May of 2009. I’m okay with being picked up, and I’ll let you put me in your lap, staying for a while. I enjoy petting and being scratched all over. With those I know, I’m friendly and affectionate, but I’m shy with strangers. I haven’t met dogs or kids, but most cats are fi ne with me. In the morning I’ll talk to you, ankle rub and follow you around the house. Please come for me. The above abandoned pet is being housed by the Carver-Scott Humane Society and is available for adoption. Pets have been checked by a vet, wormed, given updated shots, have a micro ID, checked for friendly dispositions and spayed or neutered if they are adults. The donation fee for a cat starts at $165+ and fees for a dog start at $195+. If you can give a pet a home, call the humane society at (952) 368-3553.

‘THE WORSTEST PLAY’ “The Worstest Play Ever Wrote” puts failure front and center, even in the title. What student directors Anderson, a junior from Savage and Heither, a senior from Savage, demanded from their actors was their bests. “It helps if you’re a good actor because they can do bad acting so well,” Anderson said. Similar to “Epic Fail,” “The Worstest Play Ever Wrote” is a series of short humorous vignettes, calling on actors to be outrageous as they play horrible overacting thespians. Fans of “Seinfeld” might find themselves enjoying the play, if it’s anything like how Heither summarized it. “If you want to get technical, it’s a play about nothing,” she said. Unlike “Epic Fail” and “The Brick and the Rose,” “The Worstest Play Ever Wrote” is broad and unabashedly hilarious, which is exactly what the directors sought. “We knew it had to be a comedy,” Heither said. “If we had chosen

Both praised their actors for their interpretations of the out-there characters, saying that the chemistry between the

cast and directors has made the production a fun success. As opening night crawls near, Heither and Anderson are both bursting with excitement. “Sleep is not happening,” Anderson said.
