Should land behind Celebrating the harvest Rainbow be retail or housing?

T

he Community Gardens at Bridgewood Church off of County Road 27 were busy with activity last week as gardeners removed weeds, watered plants and picked fresh vegetables. Linda and Larry Gates of Savage (left) watered their peppers, onions, beans, carrots, tomatoes and beets, which are almost ready for harvest, while Tatyana Kostanko of Savage (below) selected ripe tomatoes from her garden. This is the third season the community gardens have been available, according to Don Muilenburg, pastor of congregational life at Bridgewood Church. About 30 of the plots are used by church members while the remaining 100 plots are gardened by the community at large. Muilenburg said he remembers looking at the land several years ago when it was “fallow and unused,” and he thought about the individuals in townhomes and apartment buildings who would be happy to use the land for gardening. “I talked to our board of elders and they agreed it would be a good use of space,” said Muilenburg. “It’s a great opportunity for people to enjoy nature and for nature to enjoy the gardens.” The 10-by-20 plots are available each year on a first-come, first-served basis. This year plots were available for $30 each. For more information, visit www. bridgewood.org and click on Bridgewood Community Garden.

Land owner pushes for apartments, townhomes; others want commercial BY AMY LYON editor@savagepacer.com

More than a dozen proponents and opponents spoke out for and against t he proposed Vi l lage Com mons development during the Planning Commission meeting Aug. 18, and ultimately, the Planning Commission voted 4-3 to leave the site behind Rainbow Foods zoned for a commercial development. The City Council will review the issue at its Tuesday, Sept. 6 meeting, and will take the recommendation of the Planning Commission under advisement. The majority of the focus during the Aug. 18 Planning Commission meeting centered on whether or not the 14-acre site should remain commercial or if the developer and land owner, Ron Clark, should be allowed a Comprehensive Plan amendment to change the land-use designation to mixed use.

Mother, daughter hospitalized after car crash on Boone A car crash on Boone Avenue in Savage required a 24-year-old Prior Lake woman and her 2-yearold daughter to be hospitalized on Saturday, Aug. 20. The daughter was said to be in critical condition at the time. At about 2:20 p.m., the Prior Lake woman’s vehicle collided head-on with a car driven by a 16-year-old girl from Savage on Boone Avenue just south of Carriage Hill Road. The 2-year-old was airlifted to North Memorial Medical Center in Robbins-

dale, and her mother was transported by ambulance to the same hospital. Minnesota State Patrol was asked to do a reconstruction of the accident, and Savage Police Capt. Dave Muelken said “it’s too early to determine exactly what the causes were.” A detective from Savage spoke with the mother on Tuesday morning (Aug. 23), and the mother said the child was still in critical condition, but that the doctors were pleased with her progress. -Alex Hall

PAT LAEGER, EXECUTIVE PRODUCER AT KS95

Becker rocks the airwaves BY KRISTIN HOLTZ kholtz@swpub.com

Chances are you’ve heard Pat Laeger on the radio but probably didn’t know it was him. Call him Beaker, however, and pop music fans will likely know who you are talking about. “I always tell people I’m famous, but no one knows it,” Laeger, 25, said. The 2004 Shakopee High School graduate is the executive producer of KS95’s afternoon radio show, “The Moon & Staci Show.” Laeger, of Maplewood, began working at KS95 (KSTP-FM) during a summer internship three

years ago. During his senior year at college, he became the show’s executive producer. In high school, Laeger was gungho for everything music: band, choir, drama. He went to college thinking he’d double major in instrumental and vocal education. Instead, he went a different direction at Northwestern College in Roseville and randomly chose radio broadcasting. As executive producer, Laeger is responsible for all of the technical, behind-the-scenes duties of putting on a five-hour radio show. He runs the sound board, plays all the songs and commercials, turns on the microphones and ensures

everything is running on schedule. Laeger also screens 99 percent of the calls coming into the station. “Basically, the short answer for my job is I do everything for (hosts) Moon and Staci, so all they have to do is talk and entertain,” said Laeger, who makes a brief appearance around 6 p.m. every day to play Buzzword with Staci Matthews. One of the coolest parts of his job is meeting celebrities, said Laeger, who coordinates musician interviews. He’s met famous stars like Hulk Hogan, Harry Connick Jr. and Chris Daughtry.

The Savage City Council agreed Monday, Aug. 15 to establish a pre-assessment agreement for homeowners in the downtown area who are still waiting for the Hamilton District utility reconstruction project to reach their streets. Homeowners that have not yet been assessed for infrastructure improvements now have the option of locking into a three-year fi xed assessment rate of $5,500 per lot. The interest rate will be tied to the bond sale of the project phase adjacent to the homeowner’s property, plus 2 percent. The original amount proposed by the city for Phase V of the project was $5,725 per lot – an amount Hamilton District Association President Kurt Schwie thought was too high. “Quite a few of the residents are at retirement age and budgeted for this a couple of years ago,” Schwie said at a city work session on Aug. 8. “It’s been totally blown out of their budgets.” City Administrator Barry Stock agreed. “How much of a burden have these people carried by not knowing when the project would be done?” he asked, noting that the original timeline showed project completion six years ago. Mayor Janet Williams ex-

pressed her concern about residents in the Hamilton area who might be trying to sell their homes, but have an assessment “hanging over their heads.” “This development is over 50 years old,” said Williams, who agreed with the lower assessment amount. “The infrastructure needs to be replaced and I believe this will improve the looks of the neighborhood.” Some council members wondered if lowering the assessment amount would set a precedent, spurring residents with street improvement projects in other parts of the city to come to the city council requesting reductions in their assessments. “Probably,” said Williams, “but we haven’t put off those plans for 10 years so (their roads) are full of potholes and everything else.” The pre-assessment agreement also includes a provision that would waive the homeowner’s right to appeal the assessment notice and hearing, as well as the assessment amount. There are approximately 140 to 145 homes in the last phases of the Hamilton project. The difference between the proposed $5,725 per lot and the agreed upon $5,500 per lot is anywhere from $31,500 to $32,625 less that the city will receive in assessments for the project. Although the total amount left to bond for the remainder of the project is estimated at

Mayor Janet Williams welcomed two new developments to Savage Monday night when the City Council gave fi nal approval to Beckhoff Automation and Fairview Medical Clinic. “These developments are providing jobs and people are coming to our city,” said Williams.

over $8 million, Councilwoman Christine Kelly wondered who would pick up the leftover amount due to reduced assessments. Stock said that changing the assessment amount doesn’t change the cost of the project, and that it would be appropriate for the entire city to bear the cost. The remaining streets in the project include portions of Ottawa, Natchez, Monterey, Glenhurst, Kipling and Joppa avenues, and 126th, 127th, 128th and 129th streets. Stock said city staff is “fairly confident” that the remainder of the project can be completed within the next three years. City staff will send direct mail notifications inviting Hamilton residents to meetings in September to review the project and to discuss the fixed assessment rate.

SAME STUDENTS, DIFFERENT SCORES One bright spot for District 719 appears in cohort data, which measures the performance of the same students as they ascend through the grades. The eighth-grade students tested this year, for example, were also the fi fth-graders assessed in 2008. Likewise, many of this year’s high-school students had their scores as eighth-graders in 2009 captured. “Cohort data is important

because you’re looking at the same group of students over time,” Gruver said. “The cohort really gives you the idea of how students are doing over time.” The results reveal significant steps up for both groups. In 2008, 44.8 percent of District 719 fi fth-graders met or exceeded proficiency on the MCA-II science exam. Those fi fth-graders have now seen that number grow 7.6 percent, to 54.4 percent, as eighth-graders. In 2009, 55.3 percent of district eighth-graders passed the MCA-II science test. That group expanded to 75 percent, an increase of 19.7 percent, this year when those pupils were tested as highschool students. “There’s a positive trend going upwards,” said curriculum director Holmberg about the cohort data. “These are increases we want to continue to see. We’re happy with those results.”

FUTURE TENSE The Department of Education has not yet released the district’s overall proficiency rate, nor has it released information on how the district stacks up against the state and other school districts. Gruver said District 719 administrators had done their own calculations and estimated the figure at approximately 64 percent. Gruver still takes pride in the district’s comprehensive scores. “I think we’re giving [students] a solid foundation in science,” she said. “I think the scores overall are indicative of our commitment to hands-on science.” School districts are required to administer the MCA-II science exam to comply with federal No Child Left Behind requirements, but the scores do not count toward Adequate Yearly Progress status, unlike the MCA reading and math exams. Those results, which are typically released in late August, have been delayed due to the state shutdown as well, but a Friday, Sept. 30 deadline has been set to disseminate the scores. W hile many District 719 students seem to be on the right trajectory when it comes to science education, a wrench may be thrown into the system this fall. After 21 years with the Full Option Science System curriculum, district elementary schools will begin using National Geographic for science classes. Middle schools will shift to Glencoe Science and Prior Lake High School will use books by Holt, McDougal, Pearson and Glencoe, depending on the courses. This could lead to an “implementation dip,” an educational phenomenon where test scores drop during the year(s) when new curriculum is introduced. “We’re doing a phased implementation of math and science this year, so I’m not concerned about that,” Gruver replied when asked if she feared District 719 may undergo an implementation dip. “Our teachers have spent a lot of time this summer preparing those core units for their peers at each grade level … In that way, I think we’ll be sidestepping the implementation dip because they aren’t going into it cold. They’re going into it prepared.”

Prior Lake-Savage students continued to soar above their statewide counterparts on a science exam administered earlier this year. A majority of District 719 fi fth-, eighth- and high school students met or exceeded proficiency on the 2011 Minnesota Comprehensive Assessment-Series II (MCA-II) science exam, extending a trend of doubledigit gaps in achievement over their peers across the state. This year, while 46 percent of fifth-grade students statewide passed the exam, that number was 62.9 percent for District 719. Ten percent more Prior Lake-Savage area eighthgraders (54.4 percent) met or exceeded proficiency on the exam than their peers throughout Minnesota (44.4 percent), and 75 percent of district high-school students passed the science MCA-II, creating a 21.2-percent gap between themselves and other tested high-schoolers in Minnesota, which averaged 53.8 percent of high-school students passing the exam. District 719 fifth-graders widened their gap over state averages by 6.2 percent from last year. Prior Lake-Savage Area high-school students also increased their proficiency rates over state averages by 3.7 from last year. Statewide eighth-graders are 2.2 percent closer in achievement to eighthgraders in District 719. Typically the results are available in July but were delayed due to the three-week state government shutdown. The scores were released by the Minnesota Department of Education earlier this month. District 719 Director of Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment Jeff Holmberg presented a summary of student scores at a board meeting on Monday, Aug. 22. “Our students did perform well,” he said. “We do consistently outperform state averages.” For the fi rst time since they began taking the tests in 2008, a higher percentage of District 719 fi fth-graders (62.9 percent) passed the test than eighthgraders (54.4 percent). High school students, who take the exam upon completion of a biology course – commonly a sophomore class – continued to have the highest rates of proficiency in the district. With three out of every four high school students tested passing the exam, these exam takers not only continued a trend of being the highest-achieving group of students assessed, but also scored the largest pass rate ever achieved for any group of District 719 students on the science MCA-II exam in the test’s four-year history. “Our progress is continuing to be evident as a district,” commented Superintendent Sue Ann Gruver. “I’m very excited about the test scores. I think it shows we’re making progress.” District 719 students also bucked statewide trends when it came to improvement. Scores across Minnesota showed relatively little variation, with proficiency rates remaining level for fifth-graders, decreasing 3.5 percent for eighth-graders and increasing 2 percent for high-school students.

proficiency rates by 6.2 percent and 5.7 percent respectively, over last year’s results. The picture is less rosy for district eighth-graders, with 5.7 percent fewer of them passing the test this year than last year; a 2.2-percent larger drop than the one seen in eighth-grade performance statewide. In regards to the discrepancy between the achievements of the students in different gradelevels, Superintendent Gruver pointed to a gap between curriculum and test materials. “There might be a skill in the curriculum that’s emphasized but isn’t proportional to the number of questions on the test, and you need that alignment,” Gruver said. There were breaks not only in the progress between grade levels, but within buildings of students at the same grade levels. For the second year in a row, WestWood Elementary School – which has housed the School for the Advancement of Gifted Education (SAGE) Academy since 2010 – had the largest percentage of fifth-grade students pass the MCA-II science exam, with 77.9 percent. Jeffers Pond Elementary School (76.7 percent) trailed closely behind, followed by Five Hawks Elementary School (60 percent), Redtail Ridge Elementary School (55.6 percent), Grainwood Elementary School (53.5 percent) and Glendale Elementary School (49.6 percent). Last year was the first year in which all district elementary schools had a majority of fi fthgraders pass the test, but with a 1.3-percent slip from Glendale this year, the district was unable to repeat the feat. Glendale was one of two district elementary schools to see a decline in proficiency rates, with Grainwood’s performance dropping 1.1 percent from last year. Jeffers Pond saw the largest growth in proficiency, with students leaping 18.5 percent over last year’s results. Grainwood ranked third in proficiency among the district last year and slipped to fi fth in 2011, while Five Hawks climbed up this year from third to fifth. All other buildings retained the same rankings. For the fi rst time since the MCA-II science exam was administered, eighth-graders at Twin Oaks Middle School (54.7 percent) surpassed the performance of their peers across the street at Hidden Oaks Middle School (54.2 percent). The flipflop represents a slight gain (.9 percent) in proficiency for Twin Oaks and a large drop (11.6 percent) for Hidden Oaks, which actually increased its proficiency by 9.9 percent the previous year. District high school students showed 4.2-percent growth over last year’s results. Gruver refrained from offering specifics on why certain schools saw such growth while others saw declines, but did offer a broader explanation for the schisms between schools. “If a building had a specific focus on science this past year, you’re going to see that reflected on the test scores,” she said.

EDITORIAL

Guidelines for election letters We have two full months and a couple of weeks to go until Election Day 2011, which means it’s time for us to roll out our annual election letters policy. The Savage Pacer strives to be fair, accurate and informative as the 2011 elections draw nearer, and we’ve developed some guidelines for submitting a letter to the editor for political candidates. There are five ways to submit a letter to the editor: I Drop your letter off at our office, located at 14093 Commerce Ave., Suite 400, in Prior Lake I Mail a letter to Savage Pacer, P.O. Box 376, Savage, MN 55378 I Fax a letter to our office at (952) 447-6671 I E-mail a letter to editor@ savagepacer.com. I Submit letters through our Web site at www.savagepacer.com – click on Contact Us and Submit a Letter to the Editor Letter writers must include an address and phone number so we can verify the author of the letter. Unfortunately, if we cannot verify the letter, it will not appear in the paper. Note: the phone number and street address of the person who wrote the letter will not appear in the newspaper. The normal deadline for letters to the editor is noon on Wednesdays, and that deadline will remain in place for election letters. But the newspaper reserves the right to change the deadline for political letters. If a change is instituted, look for an announcement on the editorial page. Here are some other helpful guidelines: I Letters to the editor should be kept as brief as possible. The word limit is 350 words and if a letter is longer, we will edit it down to

fit our space. Letter writers are limited to submitting letters once a month (every 30 days). I Libelous letters will not be published. I Letters should discuss something relevant about a candidate or issue. For example, what are the issues that set this candidate apart from his or her challengers. I We will publish election letters from our local readers, providing they meet our regular letters to the editor policy. We will extend our letters to the editor section to people who live outside of our coverage area if they are writing about local candidates or local issues. We will make every effort to publish all letters. I Since Savage is a community that falls into numerous political districts and three school districts, letter writers who want their letter to appear in the Pacer and its sister publications, the Prior Lake American and Shakopee Valley News, should make sure that a copy is submitted to each of the publications. I The last chance for political letters that raise new or controversial issues to appear in the newspaper will be our Saturday, Oct. 22 edition. We will publish letters in our Oct. 29 issue, but in that last issue before Election Day (Nov. 5), we will only print letters that are direct rebuttals to previously published letters. For more information about this policy, contact the editor at (952) 345-6376. (Editorials are one of several opinion and commentary pieces appearing regularly in this newspaper. Unless otherwise noted, editorials are written by the editor.)

COMMUNITY VOICES

Funerals bring good reminder of how we all should live A week ago, I was honored to attend the funerals of two wonderful people. Although it was emotionally exhausting to experience the sadness and loss felt by two families in two days, I realized somewhere along the way that the two people whose lives were celebrated had some amazing similarities. Physically, they were total opposites: male, female, husky, tiny, outgoing and quiet. They had never met, were 40 years apart in age, and lived in different parts of the country. Gary was only 51 years old. He left behind a lovely wife, Tammy, and two children, now young adults, starting lives of their own. My daughters got to know him years ago, since the Kubal house was the place to hang out. Gary loved having the kids around. He enjoyed their company, and always made them feel comfortable in his home. My daughter, Michelle, said that he would always lay out the sleeping bags for the girls after attending a school dance, fully expecting them to spend the night. Although he was passionate about deer hunting and NASCAR, he enjoyed most being with his family and close friends. He knew what was important in life.

Margaret was 91 years old. She was a nurse and the mother of one of my best friends from back home. She had spent the last two years of her life with her other daughter in the Twin Cities. Margaret was widowed when my friend, Anne, was 12 years old. She spent the rest of her life supporting her daughters, watching them grow up, graduate from college, get married and have children. She was always close by without being intrusive. She enjoyed her daughters and their families and was supportive to any of their activities or projects. She was welcoming and kind to my children during our days

in St. Louis. Her grandchildren and my kids had connecting back yards, so they were constantly running back and forth, having cookies, Kool-aid and whatever treats Margaret was willing to offer. Margaret also knew what was important in life. When I was driving home from Margaret’s funeral on Saturday, I realized that these two people lived the way we all should live. They were happy! Neither of them lived extravagantly. They did not have all of those “things” that people think will bring happiness to their lives, such as mansions, boats, cars and fancy jewelry. They were both joyful and appreciated what they had, and enjoyed family and friends. So many of us spend so much time wishing for something better when better is right in your own backyard. So, the next time you wonder about what is important in your life, go hug your kids, your parents, your grandchildren and your friends … And be happy!

GUEST COMMENTARY

Why Minnesota’s corrections system is best Kim Weisner, a community supervision agent in Chaska, received something unexpected in the mail: a thank you card from an offender she recommended be sent to jail. In it, the man wrote that her recommendation to the judge to send him to jail was the best thing she could have done for him. Kim said that card was one of the few thank yous she’s received in seven years as an agent. As she put it, “I don’t think this is a job of thank yous, especially from the offenders.” Kim is one of hundreds of agents working to find the balance between focusing on enforcing accountability and helping offenders change their behavior to become law-abiding citizens. August 21-27 was Probation, Parole and Community Supervision Week in Minnesota. It’s a chance for us to recognize the often unrecognized individuals all over the state who supervise offenders in the community – on probation, parole or supervised release – to make Minnesota safer for our families. Public perception of corrections is of prison bars and hardened criminals. But the numbers show that prisoners are less than 10 percent of the picture: there are

approximately 9,400 inmates in state prisons and more than 127,000 people being supervised in Minnesota communities. It’s a direction Minnesota has been moving toward for more than 30 years; and it is working. Research has shown that many offenders – from low-risk to high-risk – can be managed safely and held accountable in the community at lower costs and with better results than sending them to prison. Minnesota’s focus on using community-based resources to deal with offenders has resulted in a long-term strategy for budget savings. The Minnesota Department of Corrections has an annual budget of $456 million. In contrast, our neighbor Wisconsin incarcerates 23,000 offenders at an annual cost to taxpayers of $1.3 billion. Supervision agents like Kim have a duality of roles. At times, their duties require that they be highly enforcement oriented. At other times, they utilize skills resembling those of social workers, counselors or addiction specialists. Within this dichotomy of roles, agents work tirelessly to motivate offenders to make positive changes, while holding them accountable for their actions. They create case plans to

address specific offender needs, and connect offenders to community resources that help achieve goals such as sobriety, family reunification, treatment and work. A key measure of success in corrections is whether an individual commits another crime – known as recidivism. Recent statistics show that 85 percent of Minnesota probationers remain free of any felony conviction three years after completing their sentence. For offenders released from prison, 72 percent remain law-abiding during the three-year follow up period. If we have successfully turned these individuals into taxpayers, not only do we save money in the long-run, we have prevented other citizens from becoming victims. As we take time to recognize Probation, Parole and Community Supervision Week, I want to express my thanks to Kim and all the agents across the state and wish them the best in the performance of their duties. My hope is that they all receive the hundreds of thank you cards they deserve, because they work every day to make Minnesota a better, safer place. (Rich Crawford is a deputy commissioner for the Minnesota Department of Corrections.)

Mom finds new inspiration in Africa through twin daughters’ eyes

Five years ago this fall, I set out on a journey to Africa with a lofty goal. My goal was two-fold, to climb Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest mountain, and to connect with God to reassess the direction my life had taken. What I found in Africa forever changed me and the direction my life would take. The head guide on our climb expedition was a man named Nickson Moshi. During that trip, Nickson and I became friends. In the years that followed, Nickson and I became business partners, and in the process fell in love. We were married in October 2008. Nickson now travels back and forth between the United States and Tanzania working with our company, Kilisummit Adventure and Safari, coordinating Kilimanjaro treks and Tanzania safaris for people around the world. Despite his busy schedule, he has found time for another very important job, sharing his time and love with my three daughters: Haley, 17, and twins Allison and Megan Woldstad, 15. For several years, it has been Nickson’s goal to take the girls to Tanzania. After much planning, we were able to take the twins to Africa for the first time in July. Nickson wanted the girls to see as much of Tanzania as possible, knowing that their experiences there could help shape their future. I think what the girls experienced and discovered in Africa was an education beyond anything I could have hoped for. Our first stop was the Marangu Village at the base of Kilimanjaro. Nickson grew up there as a member of the Chagga Tribe. At the age of 15, he became a porter on the mountain, worked his way up to the position of head mountain guide and eventually began his own climbing company.

We drove several hours on rough, unpaved roads to visit Nickson’s grandma and parents at their home, where they welcomed us with their traditional banana beer when we arrived. The girls learned during our visit that life in the village was hard, yet simple. Life there was not about acquiring possessions or rushing from place to place, but about serving each other and serving God. What we found there were happy, hard-working people grateful for what they had and willing to it share with anyone in need. The next part of our journey took us to Mount Kilimanjaro to join one of Nickson’s climbing groups. Our group totaled 11 climbers and a mountain crew of five guides, 40 porters and two cooks. On the trek, we were joined by my dad Mark, my uncle Kurt and six others, including one lady from Colorado named Sue. Climbing Kilimanjaro is a huge undertaking for anyone who attempts it, but Sue had the additional challenge of being visually impaired. On the morning of Aug. 2, eight of us stood on the 19,340-foot summit, including my daughter Allison and Sue, who reached the summit despite the fact she was unable to see a single step she took. My dad descended early with Megan due to altitude sickness. What we learned on Kilimanjaro was that success required endurance and determination, but most of all it required teamwork. Without each other and the support of our mountain crew, we could not have accomplished our goal. We also learned from those who did not summit that sometimes success is found not by achieving the intended goal, but in the ability to recognize one’s limitations, to make wise decisions and to be strong and gracious in the process. The next part of our journey brought us to the Serengeti and the Ngorongoro Crater. Here, we saw the

amazing wildlife of Tanzania. Animals such as lions, elephants, cheetah, leopards, giraffe and hundreds more live here free of boundaries in their natural habitat. While visiting these amazing places we learned that poachers, disease, change of climate and loss of habitat threaten the survival of these animals in the wild. Since both girls have expressed an interest in finding careers working with animals, Nickson brought them to the Mweka College of African Wildlife Management, which specializes in the conservation and protection of animals around the world. Megan already has her heart set on going to college here. Our final visit was to the Mwereni Primary School for the blind in the city of Moshi. What we learned here was both heartbreaking and inspirational. Here there are blind students from all over Tanzania, whose families

are unable to provide them with the special education and equipment they need. The school has also become a refuge for albino children, who are often shunned by society as their condition is seen as evil. Several of the different groups and organizations that have climbed with Nickson in the past have taken this school under their wing, donating thousands of dollars to new facilities and equipment for these special children. I have been so fortunate to have visited Tanzania on several occasions, but it was not until I saw it through the eyes of my daughters that I realized how the experiences here can change and impact those who visit. My hope is that what they discovered in Tanzania will change them as it has changed me, and that their experiences will provide them with direction as they search for their purpose and role in life.

COMMONS  continued from page 1

Administrator Barry Stock reported last month that Aldi had looked at the space for its grocery store prior to choosing the space in O’Connell Square. Representatives from Ron Clark Construction and Design said that the vacant land has been “actively marketed” for the eight years that Clark has owned it, and efforts have been made to develop the property commercially since 1989. “Land owners have been repeatedly told by developers and users and well-respected market experts that the site is not and will not be a viable commercial site,” said Kendra Lindahl from Landform, the planning company for the Village Commons project. Lindahl cited the land’s location with limited visibility and limited access as drawbacks for a commercial site. Clark commissioned the McComb Group to conduct a market study in 2010, and some residents and commissioners found the study’s fi ndings and statistics questionable. The market study reported that a mixed use development on the site featuring residential and commercial would be likely be successful; whereas, the high retail vacancy in the area would make the area not viable as a commercial property. City Planner Bryan Tucker said that the city of Savage currently has approximately 75-85 acres of vacant commercial property. C om m i s sioner T i mot hy Bragg stated that he believes the “momentum is back” for a commercial development on the property, and questioned how actively Clark has tried to market and sell the land.

www.savagepacer.com | Savage Pacer

WHAT’S CHANGED? Bragg asked what has changed since the original proposal was brought before the city last year and turned down by the City Council in February. “The vote was to keep the p a r c el c om mer ci a l ,” s a id Bragg. Commissioner Bob Coughlen reminded Bragg that when the Village Commons project was denied in February, there were also issues of density and questions about architectural features. “It wasn’t just because we wanted to keep it commercial,” he said. Lindahl said that in addition to the “significant” physical changes to the Village Commons proposal in the reduction of units, density and the height of the buildings, representatives brought the revised project back before the council and wanted to better explain how the project meets the goals of the city’s 2030 Comprehensive Plan. “I think the vision or the goal was that we don’t want to change our corridor,” said Bragg. “This is one of our last pieces in the major corridor and we wanted to keep it commercial.” City Planner Bryan Tucker noted that the Village Commons site plan was reworked and many city and neighborhood concerns were addressed. “Whether or not something has changed, the applicant has the right to reapply,” said Tucker.

COMPREHENSIVE PLAN Many residents in support of and against the project referred to the City’s 2030 Comprehensive Plan, which outlines the future plans for the city and provides direction to staff, com-

missioners and the city council when considering development plans and land use changes. Lindahl called the Comprehensive Plan a “living document” that “needs to respond to the realities of the marketplace.” Commissioner Sharon Allen agreed and said she volunteered on the Comprehensive Plan committee. “No one was at the public meetings,” she said. “People don’t understand that things change. Property owners have the right to come in with a concept drawing. That’s why your realtor should tell you to check your comp plan before you buy your house.” Commissioner Coughlen said that the original commercial zoning was based on the first proposed plan for the area. “It hasn’t always been the vision of the city,” he said. But Commission Chair Chris Picard called the intersection of county roads 13 and 42 “the commercial hub of Savage.” “This is the biggest piece of land on that corner,” said Picard. “I would hate to see that go for housing when it could be commercial.” Picard, and several residents, recommended that Clark move Village Commons to an area in the city that is already zoned for housing or mixed use. “I have no objections to the development,” said Picard. “My problem is with it at this intersection.”

AFFORDABLE HOUSING Prior to opening the public hearing, Picard asked the crowd to be respectful and to “refrain from cheering, booing, hissing and personal attacks.” He invited proponents of the project to come to the microphone first so they wouldn’t be “drowned out” by those against

the project. Tim Ruff, a resident of Aspen Drive, remembered when he was first married 22 years ago, and said he believes it’s common for young families to start out in an apartment and move up to a townhome. “And if you’re lucky, you get to move across the river to a nice home in Savage,” he said. “I support Village Commons because today you have a viable builder,” said Ruff. “There are people in the area who need starter housing, who need to get their foothold into Savage.” Terry Funk, a resident of West 141st Street agreed. “The people moving into the Village Commons will be the kind of individuals and families Savage can build its future on. There are people working in the city who can’t afford to live in the city.” Still, other residents like Robert Thibodeaux of Ridgewood Lane believed “lots of affordable housing” could be found elsewhere in the city. Curt Tokach, a resident of Aquila Lane, recommended Clark’s neighboring development Trout Run where townhomes start at $169,900 and sell for over $500,000, according to the development’s Web site. David Laurin, a resident of Ridgewood Lane, pointed to rental units by the high school and Target that are available as affordable housing options. “We’ve got more housing in this city than we can shake a stick at,” said Laurin, who considered the house down the street from him to be affordable at $207,000 for the mom with two kids who purchased it after a foreclosure. Allison Streich, vice-chair of the Scott-Carver Affordable Housing Coalition, spoke in support of the project, and said that the coalition hears “over

Anderson 612-729-2331. www.HenryWAnderson.com

In Minneapolis, on May 18, 1974, Bradley John Miller was born to the parents of John and Marilyn (Botko) Miller. The fourth of four children, he grew up on a hobby farm, south of Prior Lake. As a young boy, Brad was never dry and never clean. With a creek running through the land, it meant adventurous days catching frogs, building dams, and playing in the mud. Even as the baby of the family, he found ways to keep up with his older sisters and brother. Attending the Prior Lake School District, Brad was a long distance runner for the cross country team, played trombone in the band and was a varsity baseball player. Brad graduated from Prior Lake High School in 1992 and later from the University of Minnesota, Duluth Campus with a Bachelor’s Degree in Marketing. While attending a St. Patrick’s Day party, Brad was introduced to a beautiful lady named, Joy Mullery. They soon fell in love and on the hot, yet beautiful day of April 28, 2001 at Shepherd of the Lake Lutheran Church in Prior Lake, they exchanged wedding vows. Brad and Joy soon welcomed to the world, Nicholas, Anna and twin girls, Maggie and Paige. Over the last 10 years, Brad raised the bar for the rest of us to be a compassionate husband and loving father. He loved and adored his wife and children, first and foremost. Brad lived each day by the motto “we are in this together”, as a husband, a father, a son, a brother and as an uncle. He was most proud of raising happy and successful children. In the last year, he even became his children’s soccer coach, just to spend extra time with them. He still enjoyed running, just so he could keep fit to keep up with his children. A planner by trait, Brad loved spending time at the family lake cabin and Island Lake Acres (124 acres in northern Minnesota). He was always dreaming about the next adventure or task. Maybe it was the next fishing, hunting or snowmobiling excursion, or where to create new trails in the woods. Brad was proud of his perfectly manicured lawn and sustaining ever lasting friendships. Brad was determined, confident, thoughtful and loyal. He was always happy, had a wonderful sense of humor and always had a positive attitude. He lived his life on faith, wanted to know you for who you were and appreciated the desire to always try and learn new things in life. A resident of Shakopee, Brad was 37 years young when he passed away unexpectedly the early morning hours of Aug. 21, 2011. Brad will always be loved and deeply missed by wife, Joy (Mullery); children, Nicholas, Anna, Maggie, Paige; parents, John and Marilyn Miller of Prior Lake; sisters, Laurie Miller of Prior Lake, Lisa (Eric) Schmid of New Prague; brother, Erik Miller of Maple Grove; grandma, Louise Botko of Prior Lake; parents-in-law, Gloria and John Mullery of Burnsville; sister-in-law, Erin (Scott) Vandenbark of Hudson, WI; brother-in-law, Shawn (Stephanie) Mullery of Minneapolis; nieces and nephews, Jeremy and Alice Schmid, Helen, Henry and Tripp Vandenbark; many other relatives and friends. Brad is preceded in death by his grandparents, Wesley and Alice Miller. The visitation was Thursday, Aug. 25 from 4-8 p.m. at Ballard-Sunder Funeral Home, Shakopee and starting at 9:30 a.m. prior to the service at church. Celebration of Life Service was Friday, Aug. 26 at 11 a.m. at Shepherd of the Lake Lutheran Church, Prior Lake. Pastor Mark Holman officiated.

and over again that Savage area workers cannot find appropriate housing.” Streich further noted that between Jan. 1 and April 30, 2011, the Carver County development agency “sent out 144 pre-foreclosure letters to the residents of Savage, which averages out to be 1.2 letters per day. Any of those residents who have their homes foreclosed upon could potentially end up renting at Village Commons.” A letter in support of the project was also received from the Scott Carver Dakota CAP Agency.

ADDITIONAL CHILDREN A few residents feared that the Village Commons development would bring additional children to the area. Laurin said that the area doesn’t need the additional children “roaming around” the area. “They’ll roam all the way down the neighborhood to go to (a park),” said Laurin. “That’s what kids do.” Laurin further stated that in the high-density area by Rainbow Foods, drivers won’t be looking for the children who might come to the area from Village Commons. “They’re going to mow them down,” he said. Laurin’s wife, Sheila, said there are already a lot of small children on Zinran Avenue and Ridgewood Lane. “We have plenty and don’t need a lot more coming in,” she said. Commissioner Coughlen questioned why people would complain about children in a neighborhood. “I love kids,” he said. “That’s part of a community. Kids have never been a problem that I’ve heard expressed before. Tokach worried about additional children attending local schools. “The amount of children are going to affect an already over-burdened school system,” he said. But Prior Lake-Savage Area School District Superintendent Sue Ann Gruver had a different take on increased enrollment when the original Village Commons project was discussed last winter. According to the Feb. 22 Savage City Council meeting minutes, Gruver noted that the schools would have the capacity to handle a development like Village Commons. She also said that increased enrollment brings additional funding to the schools. In an email to Stock last November, Gruver wrote, “The district is planning for more residential growth in Prior Lake and Savage in the future, which will bring more students into the schools.”

PROPERTY VALUES Some residents expressed concern that the Village Commons project would affect area property values. Kawei Liu, a resident of 139th Street West, said he came to the meeting to represent the neighbors on his street. “I was happy the last time the city rejected the plan,” Liu said, noting that “economics 101” shows that low-income, subsidized housing and workforce housing “bring property values down.” Liu also worried the city wouldn’t be listed as a “most livable city anymore” if the Village Commons project went forward, and he encouraged commissioners to “maintain profile, upgrade Savage.” Commissioner Coughlen reminded attendees that the proposed project would not utilize subsidized housing dollars. Instead, the project would utilize a financing program called the Housing Tax Credit Program resulting in a lower rent program referred to as workforce housing. Workforce housing “is a method of funding that isn’t subsidized,” Coughlen said. “It offers an opportunity to reduce costs to provide market-rate housing. It’s different from them getting a check from the county to help support the cost of the housing of the people that are in there.” Renters at Village Commons would be required to prove that they earn at least twice the cost of rent and utilities. Initial rents for the 48 apartment units and 18 rental townhomes would be $798 for a one bedroom, $898 for a two bedroom and $1,035 for a three bedroom. Additionally, detailed credit, criminal and housing background checks would be completed for each applicant prior to rental.

WHAT’S NEXT? During the Aug. 18 meeting, Planning Commissioners Douglas Feickert, Allen and Coughlen voted to approve a Comprehensive Plan amendment to change the land use from commercial to mixed use. Commissioners Sarah Edstrom Smith, Picard, Bragg and Christopher Jones voted against the change. The City Council will take the Planning Commission’s 4-3 vote into consideration at its Tuesday, Sept. 6 meeting, and will also consider the Economic Development Commission’s unanimous recommendation during its July 20 meeting to approve the Village Commons project.

The Brass Peacock owner Joyce Bohn (center) gets to spend her days with friends Bernice Robertson and Carol Poch. Robertson’s sister Ludy Jorgenson (not pictured) is also part of Bohn’s Brass Peacock posse.

The Brass Peacock is right at home in Savage

Take your car search for a spin.

Antique/home décor store opened in June, marking a return to the area for owner Joyce Bohn BY ALEX HALL ahall@swpub.com

Bohn can literally walk out of the store’s front door, walk 30 feet to the right and go right in the back door of the Razor’s Edge to pop in and chat with her man. “He’s like Mr. Savage,” Bohn said of Jens.

Driving by The Brass Peacock at 4760 West 124th Street, one might mistake it for a nice old home playing host to an estate sale, with a tent MUST LOVE EVERYTHING pitched out front under which Bohn often asks customers a several stylish knick-knacks fairly simple question: If there’s sit neatly arranged on tables. something in your home that But once you step inside, you you don’t absolutely love, then realize it’s all business. The store, which specializes why have it there? “I tell them, if I’m taking in antiques, old, well-kept something out of your house furniture, china, bedroom and you’re not tackling me to sets and every kind of home keep it, then it needs to go,” said décor one could ever imagine, opened this June in downtown Bohn, who also offers to help customers stage their homes.

Then, less about the money and more after 13 years running the bed about helping people find the and breakfast, she decided to home accessories that they love. return home. And if that means encouraging Leaving the bed and people to utilize old things of breakfast behind provided theirs that they’ve had tucked Bohn an opportunity to reaway for years and might tie invent her old business under a room together, then so be it. a new name. “We had all “Especially in this economy, these things from the bed and you really need to take a look breakfast, and we couldn’t let at what you already have,” she them go to waste,” Bohn said. said.

When Bohn asked her if she ever used them, the woman said no, because they were too nice, at which point Bohn gave her a similar speech. Years later, Bohn received an email from the woman saying she used the dishes at her child’s birthday party, and the mother came up to the woman crying saying “I thought you always hated those dishes.” Shortly after the party, the woman’s mother died. “I cried when I read that,” said Bohn, “it was just so nice, and so perfect for that mom to have that moment before she died.”

THE PEACOCK POSSE While Bohn owns and runs the business herself, she has plenty of fun, unpaid help. Each day they’re open, Poch and other close friends Bernice Robertson and Ludy Jorgenson (who are sisters) come by to help with customers, merchandise or simply to just hang out. “We’re not only in the same book on the same page, were on the same paragraph, the same sentence, the same word,” Bohn said laughing. “You don’t find that a lot.” And for the four of them, they couldn’t ask for a better place to spend their days. “We all love people. Carol was a flight attendant for 42 and a half years, and she’s just a great people person, people love her,” said Bohn. “Well, you’re talking to the master right now,” Poch said of Bohn’s people skills. “But we’re all very similar, we all love people and we’re really passionate about what we do,” Bohn said. Bohn also said if it wasn’t for her friends, she wouldn’t have been able to open The Brass Peacock when she did. “They worked unmercifully to get this place ready,” Bohn said of the ladies’ contributions to the major renovations the store had to undergo. When asked if there’s ever been an item come into the store that she just wanted to keep for herself and not sell, Bohn said “every day.” But, “my house is already full; I’m out of room.” Although she did add that she changes items out from time to time to keep things fresh. But that doesn’t mean she loves everything that people bring into the store to sell. “We don’t want it to be a flea market or garage sale, we want it to be a fun shop where women can fall in love with something and add it to their collection.”

SPIRITUAL REFLECTIONS

Disillusioned among us need a center that holds We need a center that holds! It seems to me that many people today are anxious and disillusioned with the people and institutions they have trusted in the past. They are not sure who or what to put their trust in. Our government seems so partisan and dysfunctional that many seem ready to throw the baby out with the bath water. CEOs and their corporations from Wall Street to Houston have more than demonstrated their human capacity to be corrupt and self-centered. The revolution in communications has opened the door for everybody and

their brother to broadcast their opinion on everything. This undermines the integrity of the journalism we used to rely on, creating a situation where everyone listens to whoever tells them

what they want to hear while discounting other viewpoints. As the gap between the haves and the have-nots grows ever larger, some question the wisdom of a market-driven economy. From a worldly viewpoint, we have every right to be disillusioned these days. But rather than despair or escape, what we need is a center that holds. For me that center is Jesus Christ. Let me explain. I do not follow Jesus as a means to a greater end. I have not seen statistical evidence that fewer Christians die of cancer than non-believers, or are immune in greater degree from suffering and tragedy. I do not follow Jesus in the hope that I will be the

exception. I am not convinced that Christians live longer than other people, nor do I observe that Christians are especially favored with prosperity, though I do believe that we have received our share of blessings. So, I do not follow Jesus in the hopes of greater gain. I have not been overly impressed with many who talk at length about spirituality and special baptisms. Among such people, I have met saints of God. I have also known some to be self-indulgent in the name of the Holy Spirit, to adopt elitist attitudes and to divide the household of faith. Therefore, I do not follow Jesus in expectation of

a religious high, though I am open to work of the Spirit in mysterious ways. Nor do I follow Jesus in the hopes of escaping the present. I have lost count of the times various sages have predicted the “end.” And yet here we are. No, I do not follow Jesus as a means to some end. Rather I follow him because in him I have beheld the face of God. I believe that in his life, death and resurrection I am reconciled to God, the giver of life. I believe nothing on earth or in heaven can separate us from that suffering love. Jesus is the union of power and goodness. I trust him. He is the one who has brought me into a new and abiding

relationship with God. He is the center that holds. And that seems especially apparent in times like this when all other ground is sinking sand. In him I find the courage, serenity and guidance to keep doing the best I can – aware that together we will endure the fate we create, yet confident that even that fate will not separate me from God’s love in Jesus Christ.

In fact, it’s a 10-by-10-foot room full of microphones, soundboard and other technical equipment. Still, Laeger — who “runs on a steady fuel of Mountain Dew and Haribo Gummy Bears,” Matthews said — loves his live-radio gig, saying it’s never the same from hour to hour or day to day. So how did he get his nickname? “I evidently look like Beaker from The Muppets,” he said. Moon and Staci originally wanted to call him “iPat” because of his interest in all things technology, but midday radio host Dez started calling him Beaker after the hapless lab assistant from “The Muppet Show,” whose shocking orange hair sticks straight out. “Have you seen him?

The 94.5 FM radio show runs from 2 to 7 p.m. weekdays, but Laeger doesn’t arrive at the studio until an hour before since the trio does most of its planning via e-mail. While it’s nice to sleep in, Laeger said he always pictured himself with a 9-5 job, especially after working odd hours at restaurants throughout high school and college. Laeger, who moved from Shakopee to Maplewood last fall, also works part-time as director of technology and media at Meadow Spring Community Church in Shakopee. Laeger’s father, John, is pastor of the church. When Laeger tells people what he does for a living, he typically gets two questions: Which famous people have you met and are the callers and e-mailers on the show real? Believe it or not, they are. “They’re all real,” he said. “People have pretty outrageous stories.” Laeger jokes that part of his job is keeping Moon on task; he described the host as a little scatterbrained but very experienced.

Canterbury manager charged with felony theft

Call to Find out How!

The night Canterbury Park reopened following the state government shutdown, a food manager was caught pilfering from the night deposit, according to a criminal complaint filed in Scott County District Court. Lisa Dawn Pfieffer, 45, of Richfield was captured on video surveillance moving 10 $20 bills into her purse, police say. Her manager had noticed numbers not matching on deposits, and placed a security camera in Pfieffer’s office on July 21. As a food and service manager, Pfieffer handled all the money servers turned in at the end of the evening shift. She was supposed to count the money and deposit it at the end of each night.

Her manager estimated $1,495 was missing during the month of June. Pfieffer allegedly admitted to her boss that she took about $6,000 over one year. Shakopee police arrested Pfieffer, who admitted to taking $200 the evening of July 21. She admitted that she began stealing cash in August 2010, and estimated taking approximately $1,800 since then. Pfieffer said she stole because her fiancée was laid off of work and she was using the money for everyday living expenses. Pfieffer was charged in Scott County District Court with one felony count of theft. -Shannon Fiecke

Man from Savage charged in garage thefts A man from Savage who al-

legedly stole several heavy-duty tools from garages last May was charged last month in Scott County District Court. Zachary Jaman Rattet, 20, has been charged with first- and second-degree burglary, both of which are felonies. According to the complaint, Savage police were called to a home on May 23 regarding missing property from a garage. The homeowner said he had accidentally left his garage door open the night before, and when he woke up, his DeWalt cordless drill, Felco hand pruner, Black and Decker hedge cutter, Makita circular saw and drill bit set were missing. Three days later, a detective from Savage was notified that a Felco brand hand pruner had been pawned at Pawn Exchange in Shakopee, and that Rattet was the individual who had pawned it. Rattet also allegedly pawned a DeWalt cordless drill, a Black

and Decker hedge cutter, an Allied wrench/socket set and a Bell model helmet. On May 31, Savage police executed a search warrant at Rattet’s home in the 4900 block of West 143rd Street. Police asked Rattet if he recognized any of the items listed on the warrant, specifically the Makita circular saw, but Rattet didn’t respond. Police asked Rattet again about the location of the saw, and Rattet told them that “it’s in the attic.” Police then recovered the saw. Police also discovered receipts to Pawn Exchange and Pawn America that matched with the items that were stolen. Rattet later admitted to police that he had gone “garage hopping” that night looking for homes with open garages to steal things from. Rattet’s first court appearance was scheduled for Friday, Aug. 26. -Alex Hall

Style and function: Key elements of today’s kitchen Pot fillers T

he kitchen is the hub of the home, so homeowners are always looking for ways to do more in this vital space, all while keeping it stylish.

One of today’s most popular trends in new and remodeled kitchens is the use of multiple kitchen faucets, which add extra functionality to the room. “Pot fillers, island faucets and even bar or convenience faucets all help to maximize the room,” says Kevin McJoynt of Danze, a manufacturer of decorative plumbing faucets and fi xtures. “But convenience and functionality aren’t the only two items homeowners are looking at while upgrading their kitchens. Ambiance, decor and style are also top priorities.” If you’re reconsidering your kitchen’s function and style, consider adding these options into your remodeling plan:

These faucets are located near your stove to provide you with a convenient way to fill a pot without having to carry it to the nearest sink. This saves plenty of back-breaking work and minimizes the likelihood of spills. Pot fillers are commonly found in the restaurant industry and have quickly made their way into private kitchens across the country. They are available as a wall mount or deck mount. Find a style that matches your appliances and other faucets in the room.

Island faucets Usually acting as second sinks, island faucets help avoid congestion at the main sink and are a great way to increase a kitchen’s workflow. Because island sinks are frequently used for preparation, they are sometimes referred to as prep sinks. Homeowners commonly use this workspace for cutting vegetables,

chilling wine or washing hands prior to a meal. Choose a faucet style and finish that complements the room’s decor and adds an eye-catching decorative piece to an otherwise “ho-hum” island. Danze has several pull-down or pull-out faucets with three functions—spray, stream and pause—giving your island workspace additional functionality.

Bar faucets Also referred to as a convenience sink or a beverage center, this area is typically used for entertaining purposes and is often located on a secondary counter space in the kitchen or adjacent room. Danze offers a variety of bar faucets, including high-arc options, small-scale faucets and several others. Choose a style that will make this space “entertaining.” Visit Danze.com for more kitchen solutions. Source: ARA Content

Man critical after fall off Hwy. 169 overpass An apparently intoxicated 25-year-old Faribault man tried to jump from the Marschall Road bridge last night to an attached pe-destrian bridge and missed, falling through the gap to Highway 169 below. Shane Alan Wilson landed on a grassy shoulder of northbound 169. He was able to talk and move his arms and neck when police arrived. “He appeared to be in agony,” a police officer noted. Wilson appeared to be under the inf luence of alcohol and was transported by ambulance to St. Francis Regional Medical Center in Shakopee, then

airlifted to Hennepin County Medical Center in Minneapolis where he was listed in critical condition at noon Wednesday. A passerby, presumably a motorist, called 911 shortly before 10:30 p.m. Wilson told officers he tried to jump from the concrete ledge on Marschall Road because he thought there was a walkway. There is, but it’s several feet away from the edge of the main bridge and fenced in. It appears Wilson was walking on Marschall Road at the southeast section of the overpass when the incident happened, police said.

Wilson was alone, said Shakopee police Capt. Craig Robson. It is unclear what he was doing in Shakopee. T his is the second time someone has fallen from the Marschall Road bridge. In April 2007, 34-year-old mortgage consultant James Johnson died from a fall off the western side of the bridge, which lacks a pedestrian passageway. Johnson, who was married with two kids, was walking home from a downtown bar and may have stopped to tie his shoes or take a rest on the side of the bridge when he fell over. -Shannon Fiecke

PHOTOS BY ACT ONE, TOO LTD.

While in detention at school, Seaweed, played by Kasono Mwanza, teaches some dance moves to Tracy Turnblad, played by Therese Walth, who was making her Chanhassen Dinner Theatres’ debut.

‘Hairspray’ more than holds its own BY RICHARD CRAWFORD editor@chanvillager.com

O

Jay Albright as Wilbur, left, and David Anthony Brinkley as Edna, play Tracy Turnblad's wacky parents.

n the surface, ‘Hairspray’ is a 1960’s musical comedy that tells the tale of how Tracy Turnblad is able to capture the love of heartthrob Link Larkin. On the simplest of levels the Chanhassen Dinner Theatres’ new main stage offering scores high on the entertainment quotient with notable performances from veteran and new cast members alike. But the show also explores a variety of racial and societal taboos that make this much more interesting fare. “Hairspray” follows the journey of plump Tracy Turnblad, played by CDT newcomer Therese Walth, who longs to dance on TV’s “Corny Collins Show” and meet the handsome Link Larkin, played by Ben Bakken. Despite facing obstacles from home, school and TV show cast members who make fun of her weight, Tracy is able to land a role on the Corny Collins’ cast. That sets the stage for Tracy to address racial injustices and help integrate the TV show. There are plenty of whacky characters to help and hinder along

‘Hairspray’ What: The Broadway musical, winner of eight Tony Awards, now showing on the Main Stage at Chanhassen Dinner Theatres. When: Performed eight times weekly through January. Tickets: $59-$79. Information: Call the theater box office at (952) 934-1525 or go online to www.ChanhassenDT.com

the way, including her overweight mom, played in drag by David Anthony Brinkley. Julianne Mundale shines in the role of detestable Velma Von Tussle, who as the former “Miss Baltimore Crabs” does everything in her power to make sure her daughter is chosen as the next teen queen and, in a Freudian slip, insists that the TV show continues to do “the white thing.” Michael Gruber also is perfectly suited to the hip and snappy role of Corny Collins, who helps pull strings for Tracy along the way. The singing and dancing in the show was vibrant throughout. Kasono Mwanza, Seaweed, and Aimee K. Bryant, Motormouth Maybelle, lead the way on the singing front with their renditions of “Run and Tell That” and “I Know

Where I’ve Been.” While the deeper societal flaws aren’t explored in documentary-like fashion, this is a musical comedy after all. One only needs to look at David Anthony Brinkley’s garb to put things in perspective. There is lots of colorful costuming, fun dance numbers and songs that you’ll be singing long after the closing number. The final cast number, “You Can’t Stop the Beat,” is a highlight with this summary nugget: “You can try to stop the paradise we’re dreaming of … but you cannot stop the rhythm of two hearts in love.” Ultimately, as director Michael Brindisi points out in his director’s note, the story “is a fairy tale, but it can come true. Deep down in the soul of every human there is ‘a Tracy.’”

Your heart will ache and jump for joy along with ‘The Help’ Based on the book by Kathryn Stockett, “The Help” takes place in Mississippi in the early 1960s. A well-educated, white college graduate, Eugenia aka Skeeter (Emma Stone), comes home from college to find her beloved “nanny” or “maid,” Constantine (Cicely Tyson) is nowhere to be found. Skeeter has a fresh perspective on her other high-class socialite friends and family and begins to take notice of how “the help” or the African American maids are treated. After getting a job at the local newspaper, Skeeter decides to write about “the help,” which becomes a book and turns the whole town into a frenzy. Although Skeeter is technically the main protagonist, the maids (led by Viola Davis and Octavia Spencer) are what make “The Help” magical.

Jeffrey

RAY HOLLYWOOD ENDING

THE HELP (PG-13) (OF 5)

Their portrayals are intimate and emotional. Their stories are

touching, beautiful, sorrowful and yet so profound. The picture painted of the South isn’t a pretty one, when integration was a new concept and the lines drawn between blacks and whites were thick. When ignorance was at its peak and hatred was hiding behind every corner. Still, somehow, these beautiful African American women had hope for a change and for a better future, and courage enough to make a difference. The best films, in my opinion, make you laugh, cry and leave you with a morsel of wisdom or inspiration when the credits begin to roll. The characters are so real, so honest that you sincerely care about them and your heart aches or jumps for joy at their every sorrow or victory. When you leave the movie theater, you’re left thinking

about it long after it’s over. “The Help” is enriching and well organized. I was transfixed within the first scene and it gripped me to the very end. The characters have so much depth and insight, that you sincerely love them, or in some cases, hate them. There were numerous times that I laughed out loud and other tender moments that made me shed a tear. All the actresses did such a wonderful job in making their characters real, that their emotions were dripping from every scene. The wisdom the maids carried with them resonated in my mind and I’m still thinking about it. All in all, “The Help” is a fantastic movie. I can’t think of one thing to criticize about it. It’s a film message needed even today, that everyone, regardless of race, deserves love, respect and equality.

Please, do yourself a favor and see “The Help.” You’ll love it.

OURSCHOOLS BURNSVILLE-EAGAN-SAVAGE SCHOOL DISTRICT

VandenBoom hopes to bring new skills, ideas Eagan resident appointed to school board Aug. 18

assistant superintendent with District 191, asking if he wanted to continue volunteering. But since Novak left the district in June 2010, Bob VandenBoom VandenBoom said he didn’t get a call last summer, and as a result, he did not volunteer for the district for the first time in over a decade. “I was really missing it,� said VandenBoom, “so when I saw this thing on the Web site saying there’s an open position on the school board, I said ‘man, this would be a great opportunity to get reengaged and utilize all that experience I had in a positive way for the district.’� And that volunteering experience VandenBoom speaks of is rather extensive. In 1997, VandenBoom was asked by Rahn Elementary’s principal if he would volunteer on the school’s site council, and he more-thanhappily obliged. Shortly after he joined that site council, the principal asked VandenBoom if he would represent the school on the district’s site council. “It was really important that the administration

BY ALEX HALL ahall@swpub.com

Bob VandenBoom was one of nine applicants who interviewed for the vacant school board seat in District 191 earlier this month, and while he thought he stacked up well against the other applicants, he wasn’t quite sure if he would come out on top. “I was surprised, pleasantly surprised,� VandenBoom said of the board’s Aug. 18 decision to appoint him to the director seat formerly held by Gail Morrison. “I knew I had good qualifications, but so did so many of the other applicants. It made me feel good, because they had so many great people to choose from.� VandenBoom, an Eagan resident who works for the Toro Company as a senior marketing manager, said he was first inspired to serve when he checked the district Web site in June and saw the school board opening. VandenBoom has spent years volunteering for the district, and said each summer he received a call from Sandi Novak, the former

at the local sites had a sounding board. They do a lot of initiatives there, and they wanted to make sure they were in line with what parents wanted,� said VandenBoom, “so it was nice for them to kind of connect back in to the community.� Since his work on the site councils, VandenBoom has continued to volunteer in the district, working on the Instruction and Curriculum Advisory Committee (ICAC), the Community Ed Advisory Committee (CEAC) and the Communications Advisory Board. He has also volunteered in various other capacities.

BRINGING NEW SKILLS Now, as the board’s newest member, VandenBoom hopes to bring a new set of skills to the table. “I’m definitely looking forward to complimenting what they’re doing, and not having redundant skill sets, but having some complimentary skill sets that will help the district move forward and help us educate our kids,� he said. Among those skills, VandenBoom said he thinks his extensive history in marketing will be an asset to the board. After VandenBoom graduated from the University of Minnesota

with a degree in mechanical engineering in 1984, he got started almost immediately in the marketing business. “I felt I was a little bit more of a people person than most engineers,� VandenBoom explained of his post-college career choice. In 1990, VandenBoom earned a Master of Business Adminstration degree from the Carlson School of Management. He worked for years in sales and in marketing leadership positions before starting his own marketing consulting company, Focus Quest Marketing, in 1998. The company was successful, said VandenBoom, but he decided it wasn’t the work he wanted to keep doing, so he left the company in 2000. VandenBoom spent the next five years as the global director of marketing for a large digital printing equipment manufacturing business, then took the job with Toro in 2005, where he’s worked ever since.

HIS GOALS One of VandenBoom’s goals as a board member is to use his marketing experience to build a strong brand for the district, which he hopes will combat falling enrollment and make the district more appealing to parents moving

“simply because I think it’s so easy and so important to a student’s success.� However, VandenBoom said he doesn’t feel that schools have been as demanding of parents as they should be. “I think for whatever reason, schools in general have been reluctant or gun shy about asking people to help,� he said. “I think the public continues to put more and more pressure on the schools and the teachers to produce, yet the schools themselves don’t push back and (ask for more involvement).� One of things VandenBoom said he would be interested in doing would be to track the parents who regularly check in to SchoolView, the Web site the district uses to post students grades, and see if there is a positive correlation between parents who check their child’s grades on a regular basis and that child’s success. “There are simple things like that, and I know the technology behind it and I know what the marketing side of looking at that is, looking at it from a metrics perspective,� said VandenBoom, “because there are more metrics to a student’s success than a math test or reading test.�

to the area. “So many of our dollars go directly towards what goes on in the classroom and you don’t want to take that away,� said VandenBoom, “but when you’re competing with everything from charter schools to online high schools, you have to take a different look at how you’re presenting your schools. You have to compete more effectively, and you have to do that by building a building a strong brand.� “We have so many good things to talk about, we just need to do a better job of getting those things out there,� he added. Another way VandenBoom hopes to build the district’s brand is by making the district feel more inclusive. “I’m in Eagan, I’m like you folks in Savage, where it feels like we’re in the Burnsville school district,� he said, “We need to make the people in Eagan and Savage and the few people from Apple Valley really feel like they’re part of that.� His other goal, which he said he feels very strongly about, is to find ways to get parents more engaged and involved in their child’s education. “Increasing parent involvement is almost like a soapbox issue to me,� said VandenBoom,

PRIOR LAKE-SAVAGE AREA SCHOOL DISTRICT

HOMETOWN HEROINE

Staff, sections added to elementary schools Edgewood, Redtail Ridge, Five Hawks, Glendale, Jeffers Pond all affected BY MERYN FLUKER mfluker@swpub.com

Less than one year after receiving the dollars, the Prior Lake-Savage Area School District has allocated all but the last chunk of its $1.08 million take from the federal Education Jobs Fund. On Monday, the District 719 School Board approved adding three full-time equivalent (FTE) staff members to serve elementary students for the upcoming school year, funding the positions with $208,100 of the remaining $250,000 from the district’s Education Jobs Fund dollars. “When we received the Federal Jobs Bill dollars in 2010, the highest priority for our School Board was sta f f ing

and making sure that we were following the intent and the spirit of these dollars, and that was to put teachers into classrooms and to lower class sizes,” said Superintendent Sue Ann Gruver. The moves mimic the School Board’s actions in fall 2010, when members approved $ 350,0 0 0 in Education Jobs dollars to create or supplement class sections. Now, just as it was then, the impetus for many of the additions stems from concerns about ballooning class sizes. Jeffers Pond, Redtail Ridge and Glendale elementary schools all had course sections with between 30 and 33 students to one teacher. Additional staff will now rectify or reduce those issues.

Balance sheet The Prior Lake-Savage Area School Board divvied up District 719’s remaining $250,000 in Education Jobs Fund money. Here’s where it went: I A 1.0 full-time equivalent (FTE) half-day kindergarten teacher at Edgewood School: $62,500 I A full-time kindergarten paraprofessional at Five Hawks Elementary School: $20,600 I A .5 FTE fourth-grade reading and math teacher at Glendale Elementary School: $31,250 I

A .5 FTE fourth-grade reading and math teacher at Jeffers Pond Elementary School: $31,250

I A 1.0 FTE fourth-grade teacher at Redtail Ridge Elementary School: $62,500

The remaining $41,900 will stay in Superintendent Sue Ann Gruver’s contingency for additional staffing concerns during the 2011-12 school year.

Saturday school as a consequence. The feeling there is that we’re trying to fi nd ways to avoid suspending kids and getting them out of school as much as possible,” explained BHS Principal Dave Helke, “so for some of our offenses, Saturday school is a reasonable consequence.” The Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School Board approved the measure as part of Burnsville

Substitute teachers get pay raise

District gets $350,000 for student support The Prior Lake-Savage Area

School District will now have three times more money for specialized instructional services this year. T he dist rict received a nearly $ 350,000 grant from the Minnesota Department of Education to fund the Alternative Delivery of Specialized Instructional Services. This year’s award is more than three times the $95,000 the district received from the department for the services last year. In 2010-11, the district used

the grant to fund paraprofessionals at the elementary and middle schools to provide reading support to students who have behavioral or academic challenges but are not identified as special-education students. Doug Kern, director of special education, said plans for this year’s programming include expanding services to third-graders and incorporating math instruction. -Meryn Fluker

Teachers who substitute in the Prior Lake-Savage Area School District this year will earn $5 extra each day. On Monday, the District 719 School Board approved raising the daily pay rate for substitute teachers from $105 to $110. Matt Mons, director of human resources, recommended the approximately 4.8-percent

raise to keep District 719’s rates competitive following a survey of local districts, whose daily rates range from $105 for Shakopee Public Schools to $124 for Burnsville-EaganSavage Schools.

The Burnsville volleyball team features one of the top defensive players in the state, as well as having perhaps one of the more underrated and versatile athletes. With seniors Camille Benson and A l li But ler leading the way and a pair of emer g i n g sophomores – Lauren Randall and Alyssa Muelken – can the Blaze be contenders in the toughest conference in the state, as well as arguably the toughest section? PHOTO BY TOM SCHARDIN SecondBurnsville senior year coach Camille Benson (2) is Kim Hook regarded as one of the thinks so. top liberos in the state. “Last year we were very competitive, but were still developing our ability to terminate points,” said Hook. “This year, my sophomores have matured and are utilizing better shot choices and faster swings. “My seniors’ leadership abilities are crucial,” added Hook. “They have been in high-level, pressure situations and know how to win. Year two will be a dynamic season combining all the girls’ talents.” The Blaze had their moments last fall, rebuilding following their 2009 Section 3AAA title and third-place showing at state. The Blaze finished 14-15 overall, 4-5 in the South Suburban Conference (SSC). At times last year, the SSC had five teams ranked in the Class 3A poll and never had fewer than four. Lakeville North ended up winning the Class 3A state title. The Panthers are also in Section 3AAA with the Blaze, along with perennial powers Eastview, Apple Valley, Bloomington Jefferson and an emerging Lakeville South program. Many prognosticators project Jefferson as the team to beat this year, not only in the SSC but in the state.

Conference game at 7 p.m. The Blaze’s fi rst road test is Sept. 9 at Rosemount, the Class 5A state runner-up last year. The perennial power Irish beat the Blaze in the Section 3AAAAA semifi nals last fall. Nobody is expecting Krebs to walk right in and immediately turn an inexperienced team into a conference or section contender. But Krebs said his team will be competitive and is more than capable of pulling off a big upset or two. “We’d like to get a big win somewhere to get the ball rolling and to get our kids believing,” said Krebs. “Sometimes, that’s all it takes. We have a chance to be very competitive. I fi rmly believe that.” Krebs has tried to recruit some players from the defending Class AAA state champion Burnsville baseball team.

The Prior Lake girls tennis team had little trouble in its season opener Aug. 24. The Lakers didn’t lose a set in an easy 7-0 win at Henry Sibley in a non-conference match. “The match went very well,” said second-year Lakers coach Kris Rosborough. “It was very windy, but the girls adjusted and did a nice job. It was a good way to start off the season against a team in our section (3AA). “It should be a good confidence builder for us,” added Rosborough. The Lakers were back in action Thursday (results not available at press time) in their South Suburban Conference opener at Burnsville. Prior Lake also played in the Chanhassen triangular Friday, taking on the Storm and Owatonna. The Lakers’ fi rst conference home match is Tuesday, Aug. 30 versus Eagan at 3:30 p.m. The Wildcats are the defending section champs. Meanwhile, in the win over Henry Sibley, eighth-grader Chloe Hall played No. 1 singles for the Lakers and rolled to a 6-1, 6-4 victory. Seventh-g rader Savanna Crowell won in her varsity debut (7-6, 6-1) at No. 2, while n i nt h - g r ader D a n i Kel ler cruised at the No. 3 spot (6-0, 6-2). Sophomore Sarah Henderson won handily at No. 4 (6-0, 6-1). In doubles, the No. 1 team of junior Savanna Petersen and eighth-grader Grayce Petersen rolled (6-1, 6-1), while the No. 2 team of seniors Alex Fasking and Caitlin Gengler cruised (6-0, 6-3), as did the No. 3 team of sophomore Nikki Henderson and eighth-grader Sydney Soefker (6-3, 6-1).

Even the most loyal follower of the Burnsville football team over the years will likely need a program to figure out who is where this fall. The Blaze is starting over – from the ground up. Tyler Krebs takes over a proud program that has struggled in the last four years, winning just seven games. Krebs takes over for Mark Riggs, who went 4-6 in his fourth and fi nal season at the helm. Krebs comes over from Eastview, where he’s served as the defensive coordinator since 2004 and has been with the Lightning’s program since its inception in 1997, helping the team win three section titles since 2005. How new will the Blaze be this season? Not one junior caught a pass last year and only two juniors carried the ball for a total of minus-six yards on

two carries. And nine of the team’s top 10 tacklers are gone, along with both quarterbacks. So let the rebuilding begin. “We are new all over,” said Krebs. “It would be nice if we had more experience. The senior class last year was pretty talented. “For us, the big thing is how quickly we can get the kids to believe in what we are doing,” added Krebs. “We’ll rely heavily again this year on the senior class.” Burnsville opens the season Thursday, Sept. 1 at home versus Bloomington Jefferson in a South Suburban

When the Prior Lake boys soccer team lost in the Section 2AA quarterfinals last October, work began for 2012 immediately. “From day one, we spent the offseason doing leadership and classroom meetings, taking about goals, teamwork and communication,” said Lakers coach Mike Shebuski. “It’s paid off. “The guys have come in more prepared,” added Shebuski. “They’re more prepared to help and push each other and they’ve come in fit and ready to go.” The Lakers had a tough 2011, finishing with a 6-9-1 overall re-

Prior Lake scored just 13 goals in its last 14 games a year ago. Eight of its nine losses were by one goal. So the team was competitive, but it just couldn’t get over the hump in a lot of games. “We really didn’t mesh as a team last year, which held us back,” said Shebuski. “We never really clicked.” Prior Lake didn’t lose too much from last year’s team.

The entire defense is back, starting with senior Kevin K rueger. Juniors Cameron Pratt and Sam Verity and seniors Joe Fonseca and Konner Klausen also return to protect the Lakers’ net. Prior Lake held its opponents to 10 or fewer goals in 16 games last fall. In goal, senior Andy Rieckoff returns. He emerged as the Lakers’ No. 1 goalie in the second half of last year.

Boys to page 18 ®

If the Prior Lake girls soccer team wants to be competitive in the South Suburban Conference, finding some goal scorers will be a priority. The Lakers’ top goal scorer back from last year’s team is sophomore Hannah Ward who scored five times – as a defenseman. Ward was also second on the team in scoring last year, one goal behind forward Alex Citrowske who graduated. “Our attackers know this,” said Lakers coach David Graham. “Who is going to step up? We need someone to take that scoring role. We have the potential there to be pretty good.” Returning up front for the Lakers are senior co-captain Gabbi Norman and sophomore Anne Ruelle. Junior Gabrielle Bjorge had a strong sophomore season anchoring the Lakers’ defense, along with Ward. Sophomores Sabrina Hille

Simpkins missed last season recovering from torn knee ligament. She then suffered another torn knee ligament

during the basketball season last December. So Graham said Simpkins might miss the first month of the season working herself back to 100 percent. Simpkins was a big contributor in the Lakers’ midfield as a sophomore. Sophomore Sammie Provost also returns to the midfield.

Raising the level of play Lakers hope to make bigger impact in competitive SSC BY TOM SCHARDIN tschardin@swpub.com

The Prior Lake volleyball team got its feet wet in its fi rst season in the South Suburban Conference (SSC). This year, the Lakers are looking to make a bigger splash. “We had a good idea going in what it was going to be like in the new conference,” said Lakers coach Mike Dean. “You have to ready to play every match. The conference is very tough top to bottom. Hopefully, we can continue to improve and surprise some teams this year.” The Lakers fi nished 12-16 overall last year, 3-6 in league play. There were at times last season when the SSC had five ranked teams in the Class 3A poll and it never had less than four. Lakeville North ended up winning the Class AAA state title. Prior Lake doesn’t have to face any SSC teams in the playoffs in Section 2AAA, instead facing perennial powers like Chaska, Shakopee and Waconia (the defending champ). The Lakers lost to Waconia in the section quarterfi nals last year in three games. Dea n said he’l l have a young squad again this fall, but it won’t lack experience. “We’re a little older, but with more experience,” said Dean. “We have some younger girls who got varsity experience last year. But we’ll need some new faces to step up and help us.” Senior Jayme Lubansky returns for her third varsity season. She’ll anchor the middle. She led the team in blocks last year with 30, adding 137 kills. “She really sets the tone for us,” said Dean.

Burnsville lost in the section quarterfinals to Eastview last year and was swept by Jefferson in league play. Meanwhile, Benson was named to the St. Paul Pioneer Press’ all-state team last fall. She had 474 digs in her third varsity season. She was also second in ace serves (38). “Defense will always be our bread and butter,” said Hook. “We’re strong, fast and smart. Camille’s reading ability and speed sets a great base for us.” Butler can do it all. She’s entering her fi fth season on the varsity. Last year, she led the team in assists (494) and ace serves (50), was second in kills (184) and blocks (53) and third in digs (162). “We are very lucky to have such a strong leader in Alli,” said Hook. “She will set, along with (sophomore) Kaycie Hagen, but I will utilize her strong arm hitting this year as well. We need her on the

Senior Alex McGraw returns to her setter spot. She had a team-best 296 assists last year, adding 27 ace serves and 129 digs. Defensively, Dea n said ninth-grader Brittany Luethmers will start the season as the team’s libero. She joined the varsity at the midway point last year and made a quick impact, finishing with 125 digs. Others expected to contribute are juniors Emily Veldman and Monica Johnson and sophomore Libby McGraw. Johnson led the team in digs last year with 150. Prior Lake’s biggest win last year was beating Eastview in five games. The Lightning was ranked No. 4 in the state at the time. Prior Lake’s other two conference wins were against Burnsville and Bloomington Kennedy. “Hopefully, we can get more wins like (the Eastview one) this year,” said Dean. “That win showed the girls that you are in every match and you just to compete hard until the end. It gave them confidence.” Prior Lake opened the season Thursday (results not available at press time) at home versus Owatonna. The Lakers are taking on Chaska at home today (Saturday, Aug. 27) and follow with a match at Chanhassen Thursday, Sept. 1 at 5 p.m. Prior Lake’s first conference match is Sept. 13 at home against the defending state champs. f loor and she wants to be there.” Hagen finished with 284 set assists a year ago. Muelken led the Blaze in blocks (54), while Randall fi nished with 149 kills. “Randall has had a year to gain confidence and quicken her swing,” said Hook. “She has become more mature in her offensive play. Muelken has gained speed and power and will be a force in the middle. We are looking to utilize all of their talents in a bigger way.” Hook also expects juniors Nicole Meher and Nikki Brolin to make an offensive impact. Others expected to contribute are seniors Rachael Rausch, Krista Lorang, Natalie Vox la nd a nd W hit ney Sorenson. Burnsville opens the season Tuesday Aug. 30 at Totino Grace. The Blaze’s home opener is the next night versus Visitation. Both matches start at 7 p.m. T he Bla ze’s con ference opener is Sept. 13 at Lakeville South.

The Burnsville boys soccer team may have exceeded expectations last year in Bill Toranza’s fi rst season as coach. This fall, the Blaze expect to be among the top three teams in the South Suburban Conference (SSC) and are looking to be a factor in Section 3AA. “We want to do better in the conference than fourth,” said Toranza. “We had a good fi rst year. Maybe we fi nished a little higher than we were expected. We expect to be at least second or third in the conference this year and be fighting for fi rst.” The Blaze fi nished 4-3-2 in league play a year ago (9-8-2 overall), losing in the section quarterfi nals to Eastview. The SSC is expected to be pretty strong at the top. Perennial power Apple Valley won its second straight state title and goes into this season on a 47-game win streak. However, Toranza said Eagan may be the team to beat this year in the conference a nd t he se c t ion, a lt hou g h Apple Valley will no doubt be formidable, despite losing the majority of its team to graduation. “Apple Valley has only two starters back, but we’ll see what they have up their sleeve,” said Toranza. “You can never count those guys out. But Eagan looks really strong and Jefferson will be right up there.” The Blaze scored one or fewer goals in 11 of 19 games last year and the team graduated its top two goal scorers. But Toranza is confident his team will able to score in the second year in his system. “We figured out what went wrong last year and we’re making corrections,” said Toranza. “Last season went as expected. With a couple more breaks, we could have had a few more wins. “We are excited with the guys we have back,” added Toranza. “We will be a little younger, but we have some kids who show a lot of promise.” Senior Mauricio Mendoza will be one to watch for the Blaze on the offensive end. He scored the team’s lone playoff goal last year. Junior forwards Luis Garcia and Jesse Beane will be looked to for more offense, along with junior Eduardo Perez. Junior Scott McNulty returns to the midfield, while the defense will be anchored by junior Logan Reimer and senior co-captain Quinn Franti. Senior co-captain Dan Nimtz returns in goal. He started all 19 games for the Blaze last year. Toranza’s assistant coach, Tom McConnell, was a Division I goalie at Marquette University. Toranza said he’s been a big part in Nimtz’ development. “Dan has a lot of natural ability,” said Toranza. “Tom has worked with him and fi netuned his skills.” Others expected to contribute to the Blaze are sophomores Alan Garzon and Justin Ladwig.

In the midfield, senior Zach Fennessy and sophomore Jhony Blanco return. Sophomore Nick Kramer will also be one to watch. He missed most of last year with an injury. Up front, juniors Logan Bunbury and Dylan Lehrer, along with seniors Ben Clement and Connor Anderson will try to help the Lakers’ fi nd the goal more often. “The team is pretty much the same from last year with a few additions,” said Shebuski. Shebuski goes into every season with high expectations and this fall that won’t change. He expects his team to contend for con ference and section crowns. Apple Valley and Eagan are the teams to beat in the SSC. The Eagles are the two-time

Burnsville senior Mauricio Mendoza will be one to watch for the Blaze this fall in the midfield as the team looks to improve on last year’s nine wins.

Burnsville senior Bailly Drayton scored nine goals last year, helping the Blaze win 12 games. The Blaze opened the season Thursday at Centennial (results not available at press time). Burnsville’s home opener is today (Saturday, Aug. 27) defending state champs and enter the season on a 47-game winning streak. In Section 2AA, Edina, Eden Prairie, Bloomington Jefferson always seem to be strong, while Minnetonka and Shakopee are teams to watch. “I think the sky is the limit for this group,” said Shebuski. “They’ve come in with really good attitudes. The first week of practice was fantastic. I think the program has a whole has been impressive so far with the attitudes and work ethic of the players.” Prior Lake is opening the season today (Saturday, Aug. 27) at home versus Chaska in a non-conference game. The Lakers are on the road Tuesday, Aug. 30 at Edina at 7 p.m., and will play at East Ridge Saturday, Sept. 3 at 7 p.m. Prior Lake’s first conference game is Sept. 6 at home versus Eagan at 5 p.m.

Mea nwhi le, sophomore Macy Violett and junior Alexa Everson are also expected to contribute to the team. “We have a lot of new faces,” said Graham. “It seems like we have 10 to 12 new ones. Our ninth-grade and sophomore class is really solid. We should be pretty good for the next few years. “I don’t know how well we will do in the conference this season,” added Graham. “It’s a pretty tough conference. We’ll be young. We have only four seniors.” The Lakers fi nished 6-8-3 overall last year, 4-5 in their fi rst season in the South Suburban Conference. Prior Lake lost 1-0 to perennial power Edina in the Section 2A A quarterfi nals.

The Burnsville girls soccer team feels it’s ready to compete for a Section 2AA title. Joh n Soderhol m led t he Blaze to the section semifi nals last year in his fi rst season at the helm, falling 2-0 to Eden Prairie, the eventual state champs. “I want to get to the section championship this year,” said Soderholm. “We are in a tough section. Eden Prairie is always tough. We played well against them last year. They were just a little more talented than we were.” Burnsville finished 12-4-3 a year ago (5-3-1 in the South Suburban Conference). The Blaze lost eight seniors from that team, including its No. 1 goalie and some standout defenders. But the team’s top two goal scorers are back – sophomore Alyssa Blahnik and senior cocaptain Bailly Drayton. Blahnik scored a team-best 16 times last season, while Drayton had nine goals. “Both can score,” said Soderholm. “When Alyssa is on, she can be a game-changer.” Sophomore Abby Soderholm will also provide offense up front, while the midfield includes juniors Tiana Khamvongasa, Maggie Soderholm and Natalie Muench. Defensively, senior co-captain Hannah Freden is back to anchor the unit, along with junior Sarah Poythress. Junior Meghan Rudolph will take over the No. 1 goalie duties, but ninth-grader Darby Lofthus will also get time in goal early in the season. “We have a good core group,” said Soderholm. “We’re still pretty young, but I like our talent level.” O t hers ex p ected to cont r ibut e a r e : s e n io r s L au ren F r u g h, A n na Schu lt z, Jeannie Taylor and Taylor Ziebol, juniors Britta Riggs and Brianna Westbrook and sophomores Betsy Peterson, Amanda Hartmann and Hannah Keirstead.

The Blaze will play host to Hopkins Tuesday, Aug. 30 at 5 p.m. The conference opener is Sept. 6 at Rosemount. Eagan appears to be the preseason conference favorite, while Rosemount is also expected to be in the mix, along with the Blaze, Bloomington Jefferson and Eastview. In Section 2AA, Edina is always strong, while Jefferson was the section runner-up last year.

Blaze wins opener, 5-2 over Chaska BY TOM SCHARDIN tschardin@swpub.com

The Burnsville girls tennis team had a positive start to the season. The Blaze won three of four singles matches en route to a 5-2 non-conference win at Chaska Aug. 23. “It was the fi rst time we got to see the girls in action outside of a scrimmage and we looked pretty good,” said Blaze coach Ben Stapp. “They are starting to get the concepts more on what we’ve been teaching, better strategy and being in the right place on the court at the right time.” Bu r nsvi l le’s con ference opener was Thursday (results not available at press time) at home versus Prior Lake. The Blaze will be on road T uesd ay, Au g. 3 0 at Rose mount, before returning home Thursday, Sept. 1 to take on Bloomington Jefferson. Both conference matches start at 3:30 p.m. The Blaze has a non-league match at Farmington set for Sept. 6 at 4:15 p.m. In the win over Chaska, the Blaze won the fi nal three singles matches. Senior Brita Preus won at the No. 2 spot (6-1, 6-21, while senior Rachel Raden won at No. 3 (6-1, 6-2) and Toni Carlstrom was victorious at No. 4 (6-2, 7-5). Sapp said Carlstrom came back from 5-2 down in the second set to win. In doubles, the Blaze’s No. 2 team of juniors Sydney Zimmer and Mikhaila Samz were victorious in three sets (2-6, 6-2, 10-8), while the No. 3 team of juniors Allison Norgaard and Jessica Nagel won in straight sets (6-2, 6-4). Ju nior Emi ly Wol l mut h played No. 1 singles for the Blaze and lost 6-4, 6-1. In doubles, the No. 1 team of senior Anne Beckel and junior Sarah Davidson lost 6-4, 6-4. “Chaska was improved a lot over last year,” said Stapp. “They had the same team, but their play was more developed.” St app s aid for hi s te a m he’s not concerned as much with wins or losses early in the season. Instead, the focus is playing the game the right way. “I don’t care right now about wins or losses, as long as they are doing what I’m asking them to do,” said Stapp. “Eventually, it will pay off in the end. We’ll sacri fice some wins at the expense of playing the game right.” Following the Farmington match, the Blaze returns to conference action Sept. 8 at Bloomington Kennedy and follows with a home match against Apple Valley.

Former Laker will skate in the NAHL Jesse Durfee will continue his hockey career in sunny California. The 2011 Prior Lake High School graduate recently signed a tender agreement with the Fresno Monsters, a North American Hockey League (NAHL) franchise out of the Golden State. The Monsters, competing in a Tier II, Junior A league, face teams from Alaska, Canada and Washington in the Western Division of the NAHL. Durfee, a resident of Savage, was a three-year letterwinner on the ice for the Lakers. The defenseman scored five goals and had 11 assists in his senior season, helping the Lakers win their fi rst-ever section quarterfi nal game as a Class 2A school. The Lakers upset perennial power Holy Angels 4-3 in the fi rst round of Section 2AA playoffs last winter, before falling to top-seeded Edina in the semifi nals.

CLASS B STATE TOURNAMENT

 continued from page 17

On brink of elimination

He believes winning can be contagious. Senior Dan Motl, the Blaze’s speedy, talented centerfielder, is in line to start at quarterback, competing with senior Ben Baker for the job. Cameron Jones etched himself into Blaze lore last season at qu a r terback. He ended his Blaze career ranked No. 1 all-time in career passing yards (2,486) and attempts (398) and was tied for fi rst in completions (165). He’s second all-time in touchdown passes (17). Jones took over the starting quarterback job as a sophomore. “Both Dan and Ben are very talented,” said Krebs. “Dan is a winner and a natural leader. He’s been around winning on the baseball team and we know he can make plays.” Motl played football as a sophomore, but did not come out as a junior. In the backfield, replacing C.J. Smith won’t be easy. All he did in his senior year last fall was score a team-best 16 touchdowns and rush for 1,196 yards to become only the sixth Burnsville back ever to go over the 1,000-yard mark. Krebs said there’s plenty of competition at running back between seniors Jalen Dyson, Lavonte Sudberry, Josh Christoffersen, Justin Kunzar and Brian Mogaka and junior Ben Gillies. Dyson and Sudberry look like the lead candidates. “From what I’ve been told, Lavonte and Jalen were ready to play last year, but they couldn’t get any carries obviously because the guys in front of them were so good.” At receiver, senior Clay Hurlbut has separated himself from the field. The offensive line will be anchored by senior co-captain Chase Roullier, a three-year starter, who is regarded as one of the top linemen in the conference. Seniors Zach Gigstad, Garrett Pfiffner, Dane Olson and Nick Stein and junior Isaac Hubbard are also in the mix.

Burnsville senior co-captain Chase Roullier uses his 300-pound frame to knock down a teammate during a drill in practice. On defense, senior co-captain Mike Callanan returns at linebacker. He was fourth on the team in tackles last year with 47, recovering a team-best three fumbles. Senior Evan Voxland will be one to watch at inside linebacker. The 220-pounder was injured much of last season. “Evan is a big, strong fast kid, who will make an impact,” said Krebs. Seniors Matt Deering and Brian Vanderwoude (a baseball player) will help anchor the defensive line, while junior Zach Svare and seniors Chris Behnke and Brad Scharber will also play close to the line of scrimmage. The secondary will include seniors Michael Becker and junior Andrew Herkenhoff. “Our cornerback positions are up for grabs,” said Krebs. “We are trying to create competition and depth at every spot. We want to move guys around to learn multiple positions.” Krebs also believes in playing physical, and that games a r e won i n t he t r enche s.

If the Savage Outlaws want to win the Class B state baseball tournament, they’ll have to take the long route now. There are no more second chances. The Outlaws were sent to the loser’s bracket in the fi rst round Aug. 20, getting drilled 11-0 in seven innings against Mankato. However, Savage was able to stave off elimination the next day with a 3-2 victory over Moorhead, getting seven strong innings from winning pitcher Anders Enberg. Savage (33-6) faced Chaska in the loser’s bracket Friday in Glencoe (results not available at press time). The winner will face the winner of the Miesville-Burnsville game today (Saturday, Aug. 27). Both losers are eliminated. The tournament continues Sunday, Aug. 28 with the title game in Glencoe at 2 p.m., and a winner-take-all game, if necessary, to follow at 5 p.m. Sauk Rapids and Mankato were the two teams to win twice in the fi rst two rounds and met in the winner’s bracket fi nal today (Saturday, Aug. 27). For complete brackets, go to www.minnesotabaseball.org. In the win over Moorhead, Savage scored two runs in the bottom of the fourth inning to take a 3-2 lead, which it was able to hold on to. Ryan Peterson drove in the go-ahead run with a single that scored Tyler Peterson, who doubled. Enberg got the rally started with a single to lead off the inning and came around to score on Pat Abbe’s RBI ground out. Tony Peterson drove in Sav-

age’s first run with a single in the fi rst inning that scored Ryan Peterson, who opened the inning with a base hit. Savage had nine hits in the first 3 2/3 innings off Moorhead starter Jason Beilke. However, the Outlaws’ bats went silent from then on off reliever Vic Sokolofsky, who didn’t give up a hit in 4 1/3 innings. However, Engerg was able to match Sokolofsky through the middle innings, before Ben Turnwall pitched the fi nal two innings to get the save. Moorhead had runners at fi rst and second with one out in the ninth and both moved up a base on a wild pitch with two outs. But Turnwall got out of the jam with a strikeout to end the game, his second. Engerg had four strikeouts in seven innings, allowing six hits and two earned runs. Dylan and Tony Peterson both fi nished with two hits. Meanwhile, in the loss to Mankato, the Outlaws fell behind 8-0 after three innings and never recovered. Mankato scored four unearned runs in the first two innings of f Savage star ter Travis Pugliese, who lasted 4 1/3 innings. He allowed 13 hits and 11 runs (seven earned) in taking the loss. Savage managed just five hits (four singles). Engberg had the lone extra-base hit, a one-out double in the fourth inning. Brandon Walczak pitched 1 2/3 innings in relief of Pugliese getting two strikeouts. The Outlaws are making their fourth straight state appearance and are looking to improve on last year’s third-place fi nish. Savage was fi fth in 2009 and went winless in two games in 2008. Savage’s other state appearance was in 2006.

a statement following the Aug. 20 verdict: “Of the 751 days of Shane and Josh’s imprisonment, yesterday and today have been the most difficult for our families. Shane and Josh are innocent and have never posed any threat to the Islamic Republic of Iran, its government or its people. “We are encouraged that the Iranian Foreign Minister, Ali Akbar Salehi, has said he hopes the case will proceed in a manner that will result in Shane and Josh’s freedom. We appeal to the authorities in Iran to show compassion and allow them to return home to our families without delay. “We a lso ask ever yone around the world who trusts in the benevolence of the Iranian

people and their leaders to join us in praying that Shane and Josh will now be released.” Bauer and Fattal, both 29, have been held in Iran’s Evin Prison since shortly after their arrest along the border with Iraq in July 2009. Also arrested was Bauer’s fiancée, Sarah Shourd, who was released in September 2010 on $ 500,000 bail. Bauer is the son of Sand Creek Township resident Al Bauer. The two are said to have 20 days to appeal the decision. New reports say it is unclear whether the jail sentence will include the time they have already served. -Pat Minelli and Kristin Holtz
