One year later Public growing accustomed to flow of roundabout BY FORREST ADAMS fadams@swpub.com

A columnist quipped sarcastically in an October 2009 edition of the Savage Pacer that Dan Patch, the famous racehorse owned by Savage founder Marion Savage, would be happy to see the installation of the fi rst traffic roundabout in the city of Savage because roundabouts were just “a throwback to the horse and buggy days.” In 2009, the public was still learning about the proposed roundabout, which was installed last September at County Road 16 (McColl Drive) and Lynn Avenue/Glendale Road. There was opposition to the idea, but the project went forward with funding from the federal government. Now, one year after installation, city and county officials say the roundabout is functioning just how they hoped it would. Even the writer who made the Dan Patch reference is coming to terms with the device. Martin Bracewell, an occasional contributor to the newspaper’s “Community Voices” column and a critic of the roundabout before it was installed, said he still ap-

proaches it “with a wary eye,” but admitted that traffic has slowed down, making the intersection potentially safer. “As far as I know there haven’t been any major accidents at the intersection [since the roundabout installation],” he said. Savage Police Captain David Muelken made a similar observation and confirmed there have been no serious accidents in the intersection since the roundabout’s installation. Muelken said that when traffic lights were in place, people who chose not to obey the signals could drive through the intersection at high rates of speed, creating dangerous traffic situations. Two fatal crashes occurred at the intersection in 2004. In 2008, there were 17 other serious crashes involving drivers trying to make left-hand turns. The intersection sees around 7,700 vehicles pass over it each day, according to a MnDOT traffic volume study from 2010. Now that the roundabout is in the center of the intersection, drivers are forced to slow down. The roundabout speed limit is 15 mph.

JOIN THE CHAT WHAT HAS YOUR EXPERIENCE BEEN WITH THE COUNTY ROAD 16 ROUNDABOUT?

www.savagepacer.com The Savage Police Department has a mobile speed trailer that is placed beside one of the roads leading up to the intersection to remind drivers approaching it to slow down. Tony Winiecki, the traffic engineer for Scott County, referred to the roundabout retrospectively as “a successful safety improvement.” Winiecki said traf fic moves through the intersection smoothly, whereas with a traffic light it does not. In fact, traffic flow was the one thing a local business owner said he appreciates most about the roundabout. “It’s nice to know you’re not going to get stuck there at a traffic light when there are no other cars

where the counci l can say, ‘No, we’re not moving forward.’ It could even be after we open bids.”

The Savage Planning Commission recommended approval Sept. 22 of a draft version of the city’s 20122016 Capital Improvement Program (CIP), which outlines major projects the city plans to undertake in the next five years. T he Planning Commission’s charge with the CIP is to ensure consistency with the city’s comprehensive plan and to offer recommendations. P ublic Works Director John Powell said the City Council would likely adopt the fi nal 2012-2016 CIP sometime in December after completing the 2012 budgeting process. “Nothing happens with these projects until the City Council tells us to [move forward],” said Powell. “We go to the City Council, and we ask them to authorize a feasibility study, and that’s the first step in any of these projects. As we go through that process, there are many places

13/QUENTIN INTERSECTION The realignment of Quentin Avenue John will include a new Powell signal at Quentin Avenue and Highway 13 near the Buffalo Tap. The project also will call for the closing of access to Highway 13 at Princeton, Ottawa and Natchez avenues. “That’s a significant impact, but we will have a signal at both ends of downtown when the project’s done,” said Powell. Related to the dead-ends that will eventually be created on Princeton, Ottawa and Natchez, the city is

Craig D. Anderson’s first book was released this month.

Craig Anderson dreams up a story in his mind nearly every night before he drifts off to sleep. Lord Grey is the captain of the Phoenix Star and also prince of the Aragon Empire. He is always on a mission of some sort to save his civilization. “Picture medieval knights mixed with Star Wars,” said Anderson, 55. Creating the adventures of a science fiction world have served as Anderson’s sleep aid for the last 25 years, but about a year ago, his wife, Gayle, encouraged him to put his science fiction fantasy world on paper. “She’s the one who pushed me into this writing,” the resident of Savage said. Anderson claims he can only type “like eight words a minute,” so he

invested $100 in a software program called Dragon Naturally Speaking that allows him to speak into a microphone attached to his laptop and watch the characters fi ll the screen. “I like it because I can overwrite spell check and teach it words like Aragon,” said Anderson. Anderson submitted some chapters of his work to a few publishers and got a response from PublishAmerica in February, which offered a small advance of $50 and royalties of 8 percent on book sales. “I about dropped dead when they offered me a contract,” said Anderson. And looking at his author’s copy of “Phoenix Star: The Great War” last week, Anderson was speechless. “I just sat there and stared at it for about an hour. I couldn’t believe it,” he said.

ZONING CODE AMENDMENTS

WE WANT YOUR …

Cemeteries, churches and dog day cares on agenda The Savage Planning Commission will consider zoning code amendments to various sections of the Savage Zoning Ordinance during its Oct. 6 meeting. State law requires that a public hearing be held when such amendments are proposed. A lt hough most of t he a mend ment s a re “mi nor ” and “housekeeping” matters, according to city of Savage Senior Planner Terri Dill, some of the revisions are necessary due to state law changes. Some of the more signifi-

estimating that it will need to spend $100,000 in 2013 for landscaping or traffic control, “so it’s not just a Type III barricade at the end of the roadways,” said Powell. Another aspect of the Highway 13-Quentin Avenue intersection improvement plan includes construction on 123rd Street with a bridge over the Credit River. “The new bridge will go right behind where the fire station used to be,” said Powell. The total project cost is estimated at around $6.7 million, and bids for the project have been opened. The City Council is scheduled to award the bid for the project at its Oct. 3 meeting. Constr uction on the intersection a nd t he bridge is expected to be completed next fall.

PUBLIC WORKS EXPANSION Expansion of the public works building at County Road 27 and Connelly Parkway is expected to cost approximately $5.5 million. A space crunch coupled with a lack of sprinkling protection necessitates the expansion, Powell said.

cant changes to the zoning ordinance include:  Adding cemeteries as an allowed use in all districts  Amending the fence requirements to tighten the language on materials and allow snow fences in the winter  A l lowing dog/pet day cares in the industrial and commercial district with performance standards  Allowing churches as a permitted use in the industrial and business park zoning districts  Changing the setback in C-2 zoned areas from 50 feet to

“We have a significant investment in equipment sitting inside that building without any fi re protection,” he said. The city has retained an architect to prepare the design, and Powell said it is expected that the city will request bids in December or January with construction beginning next spring. The funding for the project is expected to come from the city by way of general obligation bond proceeds.

HIGHWAY 13/101 The Highway 13/101 interchange is currently under construction and will carry over into 2012. The city’s portion of the $19 million project is approximately $750,000 for sewer and water. The city is anticipating that in 2013 it will need to come up with $500,000 worth of funding for frontage road enhancements on 126 th Street as a result of increased traffic.

BRIDGE STUDIES The city is estimating a cost of $200,000 in 2012 for bridge replacement studies for the Quentin Avenue bridge and the Lynn Avenue bridge. The studies would identify specific costs and potential funding sources, but Powell guessed that the city wouldn’t have funding for the projects for another four years.

COUNTY ROAD 27 SIGNALIZATION T he cit y i s bud geti ng $ 250,000 each year in 2012, 2013 and 2014 for three intersections on County Road 27 that need signals. South Park Drive would likely be the first candidate for a signal with the closing of Brook Lane, followed by Connelly Parkway and Loftus Lane. The costs for the project would be shared with Scott County.

HAMILTON AREA IMPROVEMENTS The Hamilton area improvements in the downtown area were started 10 years ago, and the city is currently identifying phasing and meeting with residents. “The city has made it a priority to complete this project in the next three years,” said Powell. The city will have to take on debt in order to construct the projects, and will also use bonding from previous Hamilton phases, water and sewer funds, storm water funds, general obligation funds and funds on hand. “ T he a s s e s sment s on ly cover a portion of the project costs,” said Powell. The city is estimating costs related to the Hamilton area improvements of $2.1 million

SOUTH SAVAGE In anticipation of future development in south Savage, the city is planning to conduct a South Savage Water Supply/ Treatment Study in 2012 at a cost of $100,000. The study would evaluate the water needs with future development in south Savage. The city is also considering spending $200,000 in the future to acquire land for a south Savage liquor store. “This has been in the CIP for a number of years, but we’re waiting for development in the south Savage area,” said Powell. “[We would] identify a site, buy it and hold it.”

OTHER 2012 PROJECTS Also scheduled in 2012 are the annual street improvement projects, 154 th Street reconstruction, playground equipment replacement, sidewalk and trail replacement, annual storm water improvement projects, sanitary sewer lift station rehabilitation and County Road 42 corridor enhancements. The city reviews and updates its CIP annually. The 2011-2015 CIP is available for viewing on the web site at www.cityofsavage.com, keyword search capital improvement.

COUNTY ROADS 27 AND 44

Signals are in, but lights aren’t on The traffic signals at the intersection of county roads 27 and 44 south of Prior Lake High School were installed two weeks ago, and it is expected that the lights will be turned on by the middle of next week. Construction delays throughout the summer have pushed a few aspects of the project back, according to Len Laxen, Scott County construction manager for the project. The three signals were expected to be in

and operating by the fi rst day of school, Sept. 6, but when that didn’t happen the date was moved to Sept. 16. Now, Laxen is shooting for Oct. 4 or 5. The traffic signals are expected to relieve some of the congestion that builds up in the mornings with the additional traffic from buses, students and staff at the high school. “There’ve been some back ups on [County Road] 27 in

the a.m.,” said Laxen, “but we haven’t had any deputies out doing traffic control since the fi rst week of school.” Despite delays, the overall project completion date remains Oct. 28 for the portion of County Road 44 from the Prior Lake city limits to the County Road 27 intersection and a section of County Road 27.

on the road,” said Bill Terwey, who owns a sports cards business downtown on 123rd Street West. Scott County started entertaining the idea of a roundabout at the busy intersection as a way to utilize a federal highway safety grant of $770,400 that was secured in 2005 to make improvements at County Road 16 and Lynn Avenue/Glendale Road. The cost of the roundabout was about $1 million, with the city of Savage making up what wasn’t covered by the federal grant money. Savage City Councilwoman Christine Kelly, who was quoted in a 2008 edition of the Pacer exclaiming, “Oh, heavens,” when the idea of a roundabout was announced, said as she and other people have grown accustomed to it she has heard positive comments from the public. “There was some concern about whether or not that was the appropriate traffic control for that intersection,” Kelly

SIGNS NOT ALLOWED A newcomer to the roundabout is sure to notice signage and markings on the street

directing drivers into appropriate lanes. However, it’s a different kind of sign that has caused the most issues for Savage Police. Muelken said people sometimes place sale signs in the middle of the roundabout. It’s a high-visibility area, but signs on the roundabout create a distraction and a public safety hazard, according to Muelken.

COMMUNITY VOICES

How can future of Star Trek be ours? There are many things that a person can watch these days on TVs, computers, iPads and other related electronics devices. Of late, I have been frustrated with the fare on TV – I only have local broadcast channels from an antenna. My answer has been to watch old TV shows on the Internet. My recent viewing choice has been two of the Star Trek genre series – “Star Trek: the Next Generation” and “Star Trek: Voyager”. As I follow the exploits of the Enterprise and Voyager crews, I’ve been fascinated with the naiveté of the writers as they’ve created the scenarios of our future star-searching selves. The way in which humans are depicted seems to indicate that we are on an evolutionary upward spiral that shows a complete change from our past history or present status. I know what you are thinking, “Those shows were made to entertain. You are looking too deeply.” There was a day when I would have agreed. When I first watched the shows I was not really thinking about the world view that the shows put forward. However, I have changed my focus as I have watched shows with less than a week in between. The philosophical underpinnings are quite clear. It seems that our history and our present (the last 20 years) will make us into a world united and one of high moral character. We will only stray from our non-interference model of living to help another inferior or needy species. We will not start wars but only defend ourselves. We will be tolerant of every kind of being no matter how different they are from us. We will explore without destroying the places we go. And best of all, we are destined to clean up our physical world before it is so totally messed up we can’t live on it. I remember reading in high school about utopian thinking that was prevalent in western culture. These shows seem to be a hopeful resurgence of that philosophical world view. In that respect, I like them much better than the navel gazing of the bizarre, perverted, and scary flood of war and crime dramas now dominating our network and cable systems. However, Star Trek only fares well in that comparison in my view. In the movie, “The Rise and Fall of The Roman Empire,” I find an eerie future look at western society. The final scene shows an auctioneer asking for bids on the position of Caesar.

GILLETTE COMMUNITY VOICES

The highest throne in the history of the western world was up for auction and those with money were the only ones that could bid. Sounds oddly familiar when the modern-day robber barons (look up the definition) of oil, entertainment, banking and media support those who will make their wealth secure. Is it our future? Can we avoid having 6 billion people controlled by a small number of very wealthy people with no vested interest in the welfare of the people of the world at large? What does it take for the future of Star Trek to be ours? It actually will require something that isn’t in the mix of any of the shows I have mentioned: the intervention of a Higher Power. How else can the trajectory of human kind be changed? The term “robber baron” was coined in the middle ages and look how far have we come in changing just that one part of the way we do business? How about the just war question? How are we doing on that front? Are we supporting democracy in the changing Arab states just to be good guys? I wish it were true, but no. How about tolerance? I would agree that we have seen strides in the U.S. in race relations, but then again I am a white man in an increasingly non-white world that would probably disagree with me. Ask the slave subjugated by another tribe in Africa, or the women who are being exploited in sex trades worldwide, including in the great state of Minnesota. My hope is that we will see that the way to a perfect world will not be through the human race, but will have to come by divine intervention. God help us! There is much hope there. (Tim Gillette is one of several people in the Savage community who write for Community Voices – a column appearing weekly in the opinion and commentary section of this newspaper.)

Take off blinders and confront reality head on I am writing in response to the Sept. 24 Spiritual Reflections column, “If we believe in a gracious God, why don’t we act like it?” Beginning in the order in which the issues were raised in the article, the author’s example of the poor villagers of the town of Idunda, Tanzania, seems to me to be an example of a perversion of perception not some clarity of a deeper understanding. Relating the conditions of these poor villagers, the author states that they have little to no access to healthcare, safe drinking water or adequate shelter. She continues by marveling that the inhabitants of Idunda still fi nd their lives blessed by God in the relationships and love that is always flowing. It seems to me that if Ms. Thibault had thought about the odd juxtaposition of the miserable conditions of the villagers and their unalterable admiration for all that God had provided them without the presupposition that God can do no wrong or even cares about human beings, she would see that the villagers seem to be displaying a condition known as Stockholm Syndrome. This condition is the same psychological phenom-

enon that causes kidnapping victims to empathize and even to view their captors as caring about them if the captor restrains his violence upon them ever so slightly. It would seem that God has subjected these poor villagers to the most egregious violence, and yet just like victims praising their captor, they have come to love and admire the being which oppresses them. Perhaps, instead of trying to make excuses or fi nd loopholes to the idea of a gracious, all-loving God, which is so manifestly contradicted by the enormous suffering occurring in our world everyday, we should take our blinders off and confront reality head on. We should be honest with ourselves and each other, and admit that there is no sign that any sort of God worth caring about exists. Only in this way can we fi nally begin to mature as a species and realize that we only have this life – a very short, fi nite amount of time – to relieve our fellow human beings of their abject suffering. Most likely no paradise awaits those who have endured the most misery this world has to offer. And it is only by this realization that we can begin to see the urgency of remedying the situations that contribute to human suffering.

Working on behalf of American’s veterans One of the reasons I ran for the Senate was to do right by our veterans. While I’ve never had the honor of serving in the military, I have been privileged to participate in seven USO tours, including to Iraq and Afghanistan. I have seen the dedication, the bravery and the sacrifice. I have been humbled and uplifted by my experiences with soldiers, Marines, Airmen, Coast Guardsmen and sailors. And I’m proud to say that working on behalf of veterans is one of the most important jobs I have as a United States Senator. That’s why I was particularly excited to have the honor of speaking at the American Legion’s national convention in Minneapolis in August. It gave me the chance to work with the American Legion – the nation’s largest veterans’ service organization – and share some of my ideas about how we can better serve our veterans. Minnesota has a long tradition of honoring our veterans. In fact, Minneapolis was the site of the very first American Legion Convention in 1919, and we were very proud to welcome them back this year. In keeping with that tradition, the first piece of legislation I introduced after getting to the Senate was a veterans’ bill – legislation to pair service dogs with mentally- and physically-wounded veterans. And I’m very proud of the fact that the VA is currently implementing my law and has started pairing wounded veterans

Al

FRANKEN GUEST COMMENTARY

with service dogs. Soon, I’ll be introducing legislation to improve veterans’ – and especially rural veterans’ – access to the VA. Not every veteran is able to live within five miles of a VA medical center, so it is vitally important that we find innovative solutions to ensure all veterans get access to the VA’s excellent health care. Veterans who have served over the last 10 years have made unimaginable sacrifices, and they’re the last Americans who should be shortchanged in these tough budgetary times. Instead, we need to be addressing high unemployment among veterans, homelessness among veterans and the needs of women veterans. On Veterans Day in 1985, Ronald Reagan spoke of the sacrifice of those who gave their lives for our country. Reagan said, “[Most] of them were boys when they died, and

they gave up two lives – the one they were living and the one they would have lived. When they died, they gave up their chance to be husbands and fathers and grandfathers. They gave up their chance to be revered old men. They gave up everything for our country, for us. And all we can do is remember.” Probably the hardest part of the job I have as Senator is going to the funerals of the fallen. And when I do, I think of Reagan’s words, and of all that we must do for the families of the fallen. I also think about Reagan’s words when I think about the veterans – men and, more and more, women – who have returned and who have also lost two lives: the one they were living when they went into the military and the one they would have lived when they came back, because many come back with physical and psychological wounds that change their lives. With our veterans, we can do more than remember. We can act. We can – and we must – give them every opportunity to regain the lives they would have lived. We have to make sure that they are able to heal, have educational opportunities, good jobs, and have their chance to be husbands and wives, and fathers and mothers, and grandfathers and grandmothers.

Writing a new story My first big reporting assignment was on Capitol Hill when I was a junior in high school. I spent the week in Washington, D.C., as a participant in the Washington Journalism Conference. We listened to “experts” tell us about the journalism business, got pointers on how to interview people and practiced writing leads for hypothetical stories. The capstone of my week was interviewing Congressman Collin Peterson, a Democrat from Minnesota’s seventh district. I do not remember all the details, but I’m pretty sure we talked about abortion. That has always been a hot-button issue, and Peterson, a “blue dog Democrat,” tends to vote with Republicans on that particular issue rather than voting with his own party. My story was published in our event newsletter at the end of the week, and I was on my way to a promising career in journalism. The next year I enrolled in the College of Liberal Arts at the University of Minnesota with plans to major in journalism. Then my life took some unexpected turns. Between high school and my freshman semester I was involved in a single-person auto accident that

changed my mind and caused me to reevaluate life. One year after the accident I found myself studying creative writing at a college in Florida. Still one year later I found myself back in Minnesota but leaving for China to study Chinese culture and language. My semester in China turned into two years; my study of the language and culture turned into teaching English writing and speaking Cantonese (a Chinese dialect). I was 20 years old the fi rst time I stood in front of a classroom of Chinese college students as their teacher. Was I credentialed to teach in a four-year college? No. Did I speak English? Yes. That is what counted

and the fact that I formed friendly relationships with other teachers in the school during my semester of study. My time in China was full of rich experiences. I taught English writing in multiple schools for two years. Class sizes were between 40 and 70 students. In 2001, I returned to Minnesota with a pregnant Chinese wife named Liping, $ 54 in my checking account and student loans in default. Talk about stressful, but I knew there was a plan and purpose for our lives. We got through those hard times by the grace of God, and here we are in the Twin Cities. Liping and I live in Chanhassen with our two daughters – Karissa, 10, and Anika, 1. We bought a twin home in 2007. My most recent newspaper employer was the Chanhassen Villager where I worked full time from 2007 until last week. I wrote for the Villager and the Chaska Herald. Coming to write for the Savage Pacer and Prior Lake American is an exciting change of scenery and an opportunity to learn about new cities.

WHEELER SLICE OF LIFE

everybody was just going to LOVE this delicious food! I couldn’t wait! Then … I clicked on the prices … What?! Eighty dollars per person!? Surely this was for a group of four. Nobody could afford to eat steak at these prices, but on web site after web site it was the same story. All the fancy steakhouses charged $40, $50, even $80 dollars for just the steak. And that didn’t even include even the tiniest spoonful of garlic mashed potatoes! Friends, this was a dilemma of the mightiest sort. We rarely eat out, partly because of the expense, so how could I justify paying over $400 just to feed our immediate family of five for one meal? And then, when you add in the other 12 to 15 aunts and uncles and cousins, suddenly our extended family would be spending an amazing sum of almost $1,500. This, all for less than two hours of eating! Agony. How does one put a price tag on your father’s 80th birthday celebration? Grandma and Grandpa have been so generous to our families over the years, but $1,500 for a bunch of meat and potatoes? How do my brothers

spending hundreds of dollars for a single meal doesn’t mean we aren’t rich. It’s not always about the money. We are richly blessed and that’s something that can’t always be balanced on a silver spoon. Over the years my parents have modeled kindness and generosity, so much so that the entire extended family has become well-seasoned with tolerance and understanding. We have been drizzled with life’s trials, but abundantly covered with love and support – enough to not only fill our plates, but also to spill over onto all the other people we come in contact with. Indeed, we have the sort of thing that a family can always sink its teeth into, no matter how much money is in our wallet at the time. Happy 80th birthday, Dad, and thanks for reminding me that there are a lot of life’s wonderful things that can’t be ordered off a fancy steakhouse’s menu.

PET OF THE WEEK Reggie is a 4-year-old beagle mix that was not claimed at impound. He is good with kids, dogs and leaves cats alone. He enjoys brushing. Reggie is mostly house trained and sleeps in a crate. He does okay on a leash and loves to go with you in the car. Reggie would benefit from a fenced yard. Do you have room in your heart for this friendly, affectionate guy? Reggie The above abandoned pet is being housed by the Carver-Scott Humane Society and is available for adoption. Pets have been checked by a vet, wormed, given updated shots, have a micro ID, checked for friendly dispositions and spayed or neutered if they are adults. The donation fee for a cat starts at $165+ and fees for a dog start at $195+. If you can give a pet a home, call the humane society at (952) 368-3553.

YOUR QUESTIONS ANSWERED

Straight teeth… no braces!

Who is responsible for sidewalk work? David Sluka asked: Can you provide an update on the sidewalk sections that are being replaced on Dufferin Drive, or in a number of places the cement is being shaved (I assume for safety). Has this been initiated by the city of Savage? John Powell, city of Savage director of public works said: First I should note that per city code section 97.06, the owner of the property abutting a public sidewalk is responsible for keeping the sidewalk in repair and safe for pedestrians. All of the public concrete sidewalks in the city are inspected on an annual basis. Current budget levels allow the city to

allocate a limited amount of funding to complete some sidewalk repairs without directly charging the abutting property owner. The city uses the annual inspection to identify those locations most in need of repair. This year, in order to eliminate more tripping hazards for the same cost, the city hired a contractor to shave the concrete to eliminate the tripping hazard instead of complete replacement. This is an approach that has been used in other cities with success. Do you have a question about the city, your neighborhood or area schools? Send your question to editor@ savagepacer. com.

and I justify diverting so much money away from the college tuitions, the car repair bills and the mortgage payments? Then again, how often does your father or grandfather turn 80 years old? I must say – If there ever was a reason to celebrate with a fancy meal, than reaching 80 is certainly one of them. Ah, what a pity, when reality bumps so jarringly into our hopes and dreams. So what are our options? Well, we thought about all of us watching Grandpa eat his wonderful steak, then picking up hamburgers for the rest of us on the way home, or hiring someone to cook fancy steaks at home, albeit on our not-sofancy grills. What will probably happen, however, is that the large group will go to a “nice” place where we can get a meal for less than $20 a piece, and Grandpa will get his fancy steak at a later date with a small, core group to keep the cost down to “a lot” instead of “astronomical.” But don’t let that be the end of the story!

My dad is turning 80 this fall, and I found out he wants a really nice steak dinner for his birthday. All summer he’s been sampling restaurants in Rochester to see who is worthy of serving him his birthday steak. I called him up the other day: “Dad! There are some great steakhouses up here in the Twin Cities – a lot nicer than in Rochester. We should celebrate at one of them because they are super fancy!” I told him I would check into it and call him back. This would be awesome. We’d get the whole family together and take Mom and Dad out for a wonderful steak dinner. The grandkids could get rides home from college, we would gather everyone in, and then all celebrate with the most wonderful father and grandfather on the planet. It was the perfect plan! It just so happened that I had eaten at two different fancy steakhouses in the Twin Cities last year. Both times the dinners were amazing. Sizzling steak. Garlic mashed potatoes. Melt-in-your-mouth slices of bread. Top it off with a big glass of shimmering merlot and raspberry-drizzled cheesecake, and life just didn’t get any better than that. And the best thing about my steak dinners was – because they had both been sponsored by pharmaceutical companies – they had been absolutely, totally free! Thus, I was blissfully ignorant when I jumped on the web sites of all the major, upscale steakhouses. The pictures looked delicious. Their menus sounded divine. We would need to set up a reservation for a dozen and a half of us, and I was positive

Bonsante resigns from School Board BY KRISTIN HOLTZ kholtz@swpub.com

It took Tony Bonsante two rounds to earn a seat on the Shakopee School Board, and he’s enjoyed every minute of it since. But the former professional boxer is ready for the next phase of his life and that means a move back home. “It’s kind of a bittersweet thing for me,” said Bonsante, who announced his resignation from the Shakopee School Board during Monday’s meeting. “I love Shakopee. I’ve been here for 20 years.” Bonsante accepted a job with Northern Tool and Equipment in Pequot Lakes, Minn., not too far from where he grew up in Crosby, Minn. The new job is a chance for Bonsante to move closer to his parents and siblings. “It’s time for me to make a change in my life and move back home,” said Bonsante, who has two teenagers in the Shakopee School District. The resignation was effective Tuesday. The 41-yearold was elected to the School Board in November 2009. A year earlier, he was a finalist for a board seat left empty by the resignation of Todd Anderson. Bonsante thanked the Shakopee community, saying he enjoyed the challenging times sometimes more than the easy decisions. “Tony, you’re going to be hard to replace,” Board Member Mary Romansky said.

member or giving the seat to the fourth vote-getter in the upcoming School Board election. Four candidates are running for three open seats during November’s general election. Board Member John Canny said he prefers giving the seat to the fourth vote-getter “because these are the people that have stepped up and wanted to lead the district.” It would also ensure someone could join the board as early as November, Canny said. Most board members preferred opening the seat to any interested candidates, interviewing them and then appointing the board’s top choice. Board Member Chuck Berg said that option would still allow exiting board members and the fourth voter-getter to apply. The downside is that interviewing and appointing a candidate will leave the seat open until at least January, Schneider said. With three exiting School Board members, the board agreed it wanted November’s board-elect to be involved in the process. Superintendent Rod Thompson said the board-elect could act as advisers during the candidate interviews, likely to be at the end of 2011. The new board could then vote on its appointee in January.

OURSCHOOLS BURNSVILLE-EAGAN-SAVAGE SCHOOL DISTRICT

Safe learning environment is goal of district’s anti-bullying efforts Tweets, texts, e-mails, YouTube, Facebook, My Space – much of it may have moved to cyberspace, but bullying is still present in schools today. In fact, bullying has become the most common form of violence and intimidation in American schools. About 18 million children will be bullied this year on playgrounds, in classrooms, in cafeterias, and in cyberspace, according to the U.S. Department of Education. About 25 percent of American high-school students say they were bullied during a recent school year, primarily by being the focus of jokes or the subject of rumors, according to the National Center for Education Statistics. Children with disabilities or special needs are at higher risk of being bullied than other children. Research has found that teachers and administrators witness only about 4 percent of all bullying incidents, and it continues to be an increasingly subtle – and serious – problem in all types of schools. Studies

Randy

CLEGG BES VIEW

show more than 70 percent of bullying is indirect or psychological. Typical bullies are not necessarily stereotypical outcasts and may even be popular or interested in improving their social status. You may be surprised to know that the highest prevalence of bullying takes place among elementary students on the playground, in bathrooms, hallways and classrooms. Bullying increasingly is taking place through text messages, e-mail, social media, video recordings and Web sites. Kathleen Conn, a professor at Neumann University and a

cyberbullying expert, said online bullying originated among male students, but girls more frequently are taking part. Conn said advances in technology have made it easier for students to engage in cyberbullying, which is most common among middle-school students. The situations that land on my desk have been related to bullying by texting or social media. The bullying most likely didn’t happen at school but it affects student learning so we become involved. Students who are bullied may suffer lasting psychological and emotional scars and bullies often continue on a path that may lead to future violence and mental health issues. Children who bully are more likely to get into fights, vandalize property and drop out of school. As a school system, there is much more we can and need to do to ensure our schools create and nurture school climates that clearly signal that bullying is an unacceptable and destructive behavior. This year we are making a concerted effort to update

our bullying policy, train staff on their role in addressing and preventing bullying, and to increase awareness amongst students and their parents about the damaging impact bullying has on everyone – victim, bully and bystander alike. Parents play a crucial role. It’s important that they monitor their child’s phone and computer use and alert school officials if their child is bullying or being bullied. Students learn best in an environment in which they feel safe and respected. As we prepare students for future success in the workplace, we are increasingly involving them in collaborative learning which can only be successful in a respectful environment. It’s essential that we all recognize the unique talents and abilities of every child in our schools. (Randy Clegg is superintendent of BurnsvilleEagan-Savage School District 191.

WORKING SOLUTIONS Employees facing long-term health problems may understandably feel reluctant to discuss the matter with their employers. However, maintaining silence may prove counterproductive since employees who are demoted or fired before making their chronic conditions known may not be covered by the law. Those working at firms with 15 or more employees are protected by federal law, which says that a worker cannot be fired for a disability as long as he or she can perform the “essentials” of his or her job, even if reasonable changes must be made in the work environment. At firms with 50 or more employees, workers are entitled to 12 unpaid weeks of leave within a 12-month period if a physician deems it necessary. Do you have a question about working with a chronic condition? If so, please call our office. Our lawyers have years of experience dealing with all aspects of the legal system and will be happy to answer all of your questions.

district – will come back to resident s i n t h e fo r m o f reductions on the school-district portion of their property taxes. Bids for the ref i na nci ng Julie are scheduled Cink to come in on Monday, Oct. 3 with the board approving them at its Monday, Oct. 10 regular meeting. Until then, the amount of additional savings to the taxpayers is not yet known. Cink, who took over for Margo Nash in November 2010, speculated that the School Board opted not to levy the maximum amount last year in order to not raise that portion of residents’ tax bills. Other reasons for the almost $600,000 levy decrease include a 5.6 percent decrease in adjusted net tax capacity, a 3.9 percent decrease in referendum market value as well as a reduction in debt service due to bond refinancing last year. “Anytime we go over that bond payment we see a reduction in our levy,� Cink said. “We are refunding that excess back to our taxpayers.� This marks the second year that District 719 has been able to levy for its $11 million other post employment benefits (OPEB) liability, and the board gave a green light to levying the maximum allowed by the state – though last year, the board refrained. The district will levy $732,935 for OPEB, almost $48,000 more than the district

The Prior Lake-Savage Area School Board went all in on Monday night. At the evening’s regular meeting, board members approved the maximum amount – a total of $25.36 million – for the 2011 Payable 2012 Preliminary Levy Certification. That’s the highest amount that District 719 can levy this fiscal year, but it still represents a 2.3 percent drop from last year’s $ 25.95 million levy, a year in which the board did not levy the maximum amount. “I made that recommendation because the overall levy was declining so I thought it was important that the district receive the amount that was calculated on the levy certification,� said Julie Cink, director of business affairs. “Since our levy is not increasing, it’s decreasing, I felt that we could levy the max knowing that it was declining and it will further decline based on that refunding.� The refunding Cink referenced is a move the board approved at its Sept. 12 meeting to refund two building bonds and take advantage of current interest rates, which are very low. Those savings – which could be as high as $926,000, according to Gary Olsen of Ehlers and Associates, the financial advisory company working with the

levied for OPEB last year. “By being able to levy for this, the district can be able to fund that liability because we have a responsibility to pay that,� Cink said. “We’re working towards it. Every year, we’re trying to put more money towards that.� Cink and her staff only had about a week to come up with the recommendation she presented at Monday’s meeting, due to the state shutdown earlier this summer which therefore delayed state data reporting. “We had one week’s time to enter all of our information,� Cink said. “We usually have a month.� Due in part to wrangling over losing the homestead credit and the new market-value exclusions in place, Cink said she couldn’t place a value on the impact of the school district’s 2.3 percent levy decrease. “With that new exclusion and the calculation, it really depends on the value of their home and the improvements,� she said. “It really depends on the assessed value.� The levy approved on Monday is subject to change, though state statute dictates that school boards can only lower the fi nal levy and cannot increase it from the preliminary levy. “I don’t really see it changing but I always want people to know there’s the opportunity for it to change,� Cink said. “We’ll defi nitely keep an eye on it.� The board is set to vote on the final levy at its Monday, Dec. 12 regular meeting, following the annual truth in taxation hearing.

Huizenga SPIRITUAL REFLECTIONS

Himself: able to rule, able to make decisions, beautiful! Then, God took Adam and Eve and put them in the Garden of Eden, a perfect, beautiful garden where man could work the soil and serve God in His creation. This garden must have been remarkable … no English word can describe it. You see, there was no sin or anything wrong in the Garden of Eden. God made it perfect. The colors and scents must have been glorious! It was in the Garden of Eden that we see God’s desire for intimacy with His people. It was a relationship of love, unity and cooperation. This is God’s original intent: an intimate relationship with humans. Then something went wrong. Adam and Eve chose to step outside of the perfect beauty of this relationship with God. They chose to listen to the serpent (the devil) that the Lord allowed into the Garden of Eden to test Adam and Eve. When Adam and Eve ate the fruit from the “Tree of

the Knowledge of Good and Evil,” they were doing exactly what God told them not to do. Immediately, the intimacy with God was broken … sin was in the way … a wall was built between humans and God. [NIV, Genesis 3] And this is where the wall remains for so many people, not able to get to God’s heart of love. But, God’s original intent of intimacy with His humans did not leave His heart. God is the same, yesterday, today and tomorrow. God’s original intent shows itself in the fullness of time: God sent His Son Jesus Christ to come to earth, to live a perfect life, and to pay for the breaking down of the wall with his own blood. Today! Right now! This moment! God desires an intimate relationship with you. He has made it possible for you through Jesus Christ. He wants to walk with you, fill you with His presence and grace. He wants to laugh with you, cry with you, share every moment with you and fill you with His strength and love. He wants intimacy with you right now! Millions testify to the power of this intimate love that transforms their lives. In Jesus Christ, this intimacy is yours today. (Pastor Dave Huizenga is the senior pastor at Bridgewood Church in Savage. He is one of several area people who write for “Spiritual Reflections,” a weekly column appearing in this newspaper.)

Is it possible for the God who created the universe, who designed the intricacies and grandeur of this beautiful world, to know me and what I am going through? And if He does, does He care? And why would He care anyway? The earth is filled with people who have a view of God as a distant, non-engaged, disinterested Being who watches us from Heaven and sometimes pays attention to us when it fits His Will or need. Millions of people pray with some hope that a distant God may look at their situation and turn His face with favor. Sometimes, people will try to gain God’s attention by doing good deeds or perhaps even going to church, or visiting Grandma. Is this who God is really? The God of the Bible, the God who is known as the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, is not a distant and impersonal God. In fact, the Bible is quite clear that God desires intimacy and family unity with humans. The Bible begins in the book of Genesis with a remarkable picture of God’s intent for His relationship with humans. After God created the world, He created human beings. He said, “Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.” [NIV, Genesis 1:26-27] God created humans like

Burnsville woman charged with possession, assault

574 So. Marschall Road Smart Branch - Open 24 hours

Friday, October 14 10 AM–6 PM Saturday, October 15 9 AM–4 PM

PUBLICSAFETY An 28-year-old Burnsville woman is in Scott County Jail after incidents in Savage last Wednesday, Sept. 21, which led to her arrest. Jade Lewis has been charged with fi fth-degree possession of marijuana and domestic assault. The fifth degree possession charge has a maximum penalty of five years in prison, a $10,000 fi ne or both. The domestic assault charge is a misdemeanor with a maximum penalty of 90 days imprisonment and a $1,000 fine. T he cou nt y’s complai nt against Lewis stems from a call that Savage police officers responded to regarding a possible domestic assault in a vehicle at approximately 7:18 p.m. The responding officer located a man in the parking lot of a local gas station. According to the officer’s report, the man was bleeding from his face and arms and neck and said that Lewis had attacked him after she had picked him up from his workplace. The man said Lewis had been driving erratically, and so he took over driving for her. It was then that she became angry

and kicked and slapped him, according to the Scott County Attorney’s statement of probable cause. The officer and the man located Lewis on the side of Highway 13 near 129th Street, where her the man had dropped her off before driving to the gas station, according to the county’s statement. The county also alleges that Lewis had narcotics in her purse when it was searched subsequent to her arrest. The county alleges that she admitted to punching the man in the face twice. Lewis is scheduled to make her fi rst court appearance before Judge Carol Hooten at 8:30 a.m. on Monday, Oct. 3.

Registered offender violates requirements Savage Police conducted a predatory offender registration compliance check Monday, Sept. 26, and learned that a known offender had moved away from his Savage address one week earlier without notifying authorities. Christopher Amersberg, 21, told officers that he was homeless and moving from “couch to couch,” according to county

documents. The county has charged Amersberg with knowingly violating his registration requirement. Amersberg faces a maximum penalty of between two and five years in prison, a $10,000 fine or both. He is currently being held in Scott County Jail. State records reveal that he has a prior conviction for failure to register as a predatory offender on Dec. 23, 2009, in McLeod County. He is required to register as a predatory offender as a result of a December 2002 second degree criminal sexual conduct adjudication in McLeod County.

Woman from Savage accused of writing bad check A woman from Savage has been accused of writing a bad check to School District 719 in the amount of $494. A sergeant with the Scott County Sheriff’s Office alleges that the woman wrote the check but did not intend for it to be paid. The maximum penalty she faces is one year in jail, a $3,000 fine or both. Scott County has summoned her to a future court date. Forrest Adams

Selling your home out of season? A great deck makes a difference

I

n a perfect world, no one would ever have to face the challenge of trying to sell a house when there’s snow on the ground and the trees are bare. In reality, people have to sell and buy homes throughout the year. While winter may not be the optimum season to showcase your landscaping, there is one improvement you can make that will help you boost your home’s outdoor appeal no matter what the season: a deck. When potential buyers visit your home in winter, they might not be able to envision how green and lovely your backyard will look come spring. But they will be able to see with their own eyes the square footage that a deck adds to the home’s living space. Decks, patios, sunrooms and porches

have always been popular with home buyers, but real estate agents say that too often those spaces are neglected or not used to their best advantage. Yet outdoor improvements like a deck can significantly enhance your home’s value and appeal. In fact, at the time of resale, a deck will recoup, on average, about 73 percent of the original cost of building it, according to Remodeling Magazine’s Cost vs. Value report. The cooler temperatures of fall and early winter make the season a great time to add a deck to your home. Or, if you already have a deck, you can enhance its appeal by adding simple touches and accessories. A bonus space—for example, a tiny deck or rarely used balcony off a master bedroom—can be transformed into a romantic getaway by staging it with cozy, cushioned seating and a raised firepit. You

can safeguard your deck and add designer style with Latitudes deck stones, 16-inch interlocking square tiles made of natural slate or granite. Deck stones can provide an effective fi re barrier that’s an asset under firepits or grills, or when used to create an outdoor kitchen. Lighting is another way to boost appeal. LED deck lighting kits, like those offered by Deckorators, are both practical and visually appealing. Adding lighting to a deck can be an important safety feature, and also helps create a warm, welcoming mood for evening entertaining. Another improvement that speaks to both safety and visual appeal are deck railings. Decorative railings with ornate balusters, post cap and post covers can give virtually any wood or composite lumber deck a distinctive look for a modest investment.

BRIEFS

Former newspaper editor to author book on Savage Local author and former Savage Pacer newspaper editor Nancy Hudd leston r e c e nt ly signed a contract with national publ i sher A rc adia P ublishing to author a pictoria l history book Nancy about SavHuddleston age. The book, which will be a part of Arcadia’s “Images of America” series, will feature well-known historical fi gures such as the famous race horse D a n Pat ch a nd h i s ow ner as well as lesser known stories about the city’s history. Vintage photographs, which Huddleston is collecting and rese a rchi n g, a nd det ai led captions will educate readers as well as evoke nostalgia and pride in those with connections to Savage. “In my time as editor of the Savage Pacer, I came to really appreciate the rich and diverse history of the city,” Huddleston said. “Documenting this history seemed like

a great way to contribute to the community and share my enthusiasm for its history.” To provide a more complete g li mpse i nto historic Savage, Huddleston would like to include photographs from community family photo collections. Those who have family photographs from the late1800s to mid-1960s that they’d like to have considered for the book can contact Huddleston via e-mail at hud59@q.com or phone at (952) 894-8733. “Savage” is scheduled for publication in 2012 and will be available for purchase at area bookstores, independent retailers, and online retailers.

Local woman publishes book on surviving chemo Knowing what to expect before you begin chemotherapy is key to managing the side ef fects and continuing to live as normal a life as possible, says Tracy Rubietta, Prior Lake resident Tracy and co-author Rubietta of the new book, “The Chemo Zone: Your

Overview

 continued from page 1

Guide to Living and Flourishing With Chemotherapy.” Rubietta’s mother, Linda, conceived of and wrote most of the book. Linda died in November 2010, following a three-year struggle with her disease. Rubietta promised her mother that she would finish the book and see it through to publication. Rubietta is a trained clinical oncology specialist and has served as a volunteer patient educator and advocate the Children’s Cancer Research Foundation and the Pediatric Blood and Marrow Transplantation program at the University of Minnesota. She also served three years on the executive committee of the national Lymphoma Research Foundation. Well-known in Twin Cities advertising circles for her work as a commercial art director, Linda Rubietta worked on the book in response to her own three-year journey into the chemo zone – a journey necessitated by her battle with ovarian cancer. Chemotherapy was shocking in itself – but equally shocking to her was the dearth of information available to patients about how to prepare for, and cope with, chemotherapy on a day-to-day basis. “The Chemo Zone” is available now for purchase online through Barnes and Noble bookstores, and online at various websites including www. thechemozone.com.

NOT A LIKELY CANDIDATE Anderson probably never would have been voted the student most likely to write a novel – partly because he has no writing background and partly because his education halted abruptly after sixth grade. “I was born and raised on a fa r m wit h my au nt and uncle in W hite Hall, Wisc.,” Anderson said. “I was taken out of school after sixth grade to work on the farm.” A n d e r s o n j oi n e d t h e Navy at 16 (he lied about his age) and was discharged at 19 when his real age was revealed. He then moved to Texas where he became a truck driver, owning his own truck and trailer. On the road, Anderson listened to books on tape. “I was always into reading science fiction and comic books,” he said. “In fact I just sold a collection of over 6,000 comic books.”

A LOVE STORY Anderson calls his wife, Gayle, “the salt of the earth.” They met when she was working at a company that conducted background checks on drivers. She quit her job and went on the road with

Lord Grey and the crew of the Phoenix Star had no idea the adventure they were about to face – as he, Earth and the Aragon Empire were facing a new challenge and a new enemy. Lord Grey and the Phoenix Star are sent off on a journey to find a new power source to help their civilization. Craig D. Anderson him for awhile. “He’s a lways been g reat at telling stories,” she said. “W hen you’re driving in a truck for so many hours, you hear a lot of stories.” The couple married in 1999, and six months later, Gayle was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. As her health deteriorated, Anderson became a full-time caregiver. A nderson reti red from trucking in 2005 when he was injured by a chain that whipped across his chest and caused severe muscle damage in his upper arm. Gayle is from Minnesota, and the couple moved to a townhome in Savage six years ago.

A DAY IN HIS LIFE A typical writing day for Anderson lasts from 3 to 6 p.m. in his home office that doubles as the dining room table. Gayle

Copies of the book can be ordered at www. publishamerica.com, www. amazon.com and www. barnesandnoble.com said that she and a neighbor friend wait patiently for him to print out pages so they can read the continuing quests of Lord Grey. Anderson is working on the second book in the Phoenix Star series, “The Last True Hero.” He anticipates there will be eight books total. “Oh, I already know the whole story,” Anderson said. T he idea of becomi ng a world-famous author is appealing, but Anderson isn’t holding his breath. “I’m not in the writing career to make money. If I’m in it for the money, I’m in it for the wrong reasons. I just want to show people that anybody can do anything at anytime,” said Anderson.

Prior Lake senior Jack Kaiser gets brought down by Burnsville senior Hunter Anderson (46) and junior Andrew Herkenhoff in the Lakers’ 13-10 win over the Blaze Sept. 23.

Retaining the trophy Lakers hold off Blaze 13-10 to win second ‘Battle of Savage’ BY TOM SCHARDIN tschardin@swpub.com

The Dan Patch Trophy is staying at Prior Lake – but barely. In the second-ever “Battle of Savage,” the Burnsville football team nearly took the traveling trophy away from the Lakers, but fell just short losing 13-10 in its Homecoming game. Prior Lake senior Topher Rose scored on two quarterback sneaks, including one on fourth-and-1 from the Blaze’s 2-yard early in the fourth quarter to give the Lakers a 13-3 lead. “They made some runs on third and fourth down that hurt us,” said Blaze coach Tyler Krebs. “We needed someone to step up and make a play. We wanted to be in the game in the fourth quarter. We just didn’t make enough plays to win.” “We knew Burnsville was getting better every week,” said Lakers coach Matt Gegenheimer. “We knew they’d play us hard. As the game went on, our run blocking got better. We were able to go on some drives and get some big fi rst downs.”

Burnsville senior Mike Becker blocked the extra point on the Lakers’ second score and the Blaze followed with a 77-yard scoring drive. It was capped off when senior Dan Motl connected with sophomore Will Reger on a 28-yard touchdown pass with 3:44 to play. An 18-yard screen pass from Motl to senior Jalen Dyson helped set up the score, which came one play after an eightyard sack from Lakers’ junior Elijah Patrick. With two timeouts remaining and down by three, Burnsville went for the onside kick. But Prior Lake recovered on its own 46-yard line. On fourthand-inches, Rose converted another quarterback sneak for a fi rst down and the Lakers were able to run out the clock. “We thought the onside kick was our best option,” said Krebs. “And they gave us the look that we wanted. We just didn’t execute the kick.” Prior Lake climbed back to the .500 mark (2-2 overall), improving to 2-1 in the conference. Burnsville dropped to 1-3 in league play with two of its losses by a combined five points.

Burnsville senior Dan Motl (7) looks to avoid the tackle of Prior Lake senior Ted Choudek. Last year, the Lakers won a 34-33 thriller over the Blaze, stopping Burnsville on a twopoint conversion try with 18 seconds left in the game. When Prior Lake moved out of the Missota Conference last year and into the SSC with Burnsville and eight former Lake Conference schools, the “Battle of Savage” was born. Prior Lake and Burnsville share students from the City of Savage at about a 50-50 ratio. Meanwhile, Lakers’ senior Jack Kaiser had 117 yards on the ground. Junior fullback Jack

Johnson’s 50-yard run set up Prior Lake’s second touchdown. He finished with 86 yards. Prior Lake’s first touchdown was set up by a blocked punt by senior Mason Lytle in the second quarter, which was recovered by junior Dylan Jackson who took the ball to the Blaze’s 1-yard line. Two plays later, Rose scored for a 7-0 lead. Burnsville got on the board right before halftime. Junior Jake Rother recovered a fumble on the Lakers’ 15-yard line.

Perfection is attainable. The Prior Lake girls tennis team earned that Sept. 28, along with the South Suburban Conference title. The Lakers didn’t lose a set in a 7-0 home win over Bloomington Kennedy in their regular season fi nale. Prior Lake will take a 16-0 record (9-0 in the conference) into the Section 3AA tournament. The Lakers will be the No. 1 seed and, with that, a target on their back. “ We a r e ver y f i r e d up going into sections and we know we will have to play our best,” said Lakers coach Kris Rosborough. “We know that teams like Eagan and Rosemount will be gunning for us and also changing up their lineups to try to beat us, so we have to be ready. “I’m very proud of the girls for going 16-0,” added Rosborough. “I’m also very proud that we finished off with a full team effort. All 13 of the girls on the varsity team have worked so hard both in the offseason and all this season, so we sat three of our regular starters. It was very important to me that we could say that everyone earned a point for this conference championship. “This is a special group of girls and they all deserved to play in a conference match.” The last Prior Lake team to qualify for state was in 1991. That squad went 15-3, so the Lakers have already set the school record for wins in a season. The 15-team section tourney starts Tuesday, Oct. 4. The Lakers will get a bye in the fi rst round and begin quarterfinal play at home Thursday, Oct. 6. The semifi nals are set for Oct. 11 with the title match Oct. 13. both are held at Lifetime Fitness in Lakeville. Seeds come out Monday, Oct. 3. Prior Lake went into the Kennedy match with an impressive 4-3 home win over Eden Prairie Sept. 26, along with a 7-0 conference win at Bloomington Jefferson Sept. 22 and a 6-1 victory versus South St. Paul the next day. Meanwhile, against Kennedy, eighth-grader Chloe Hall

More than defensive Blaze earns another shutout BY TOM SCHARDIN tschardin@swpub.com

Lakers eyeing section tourney BY TOM SCHARDIN tschardin@swpub.com

It’s been a while since the Prior Lake boys soccer team had a 3-0 lead at halftime. The Lakers are usually embroiled in low-scoring, tight games, so the early lead must have been nice to play with for coach Mike Shebuski’s team. It’s the first time the Lakers have scored three or more times in a game this season and the first time in 11 games dating back to last year. “We came out and did really well,” Shebuski said of his team’s 4-1 South Suburban Conference win at Lakeville South Sept. 27. “We took it to

them right from the start. We continue to improve. “Heading into sections, we want to be playing our best,” added Shebuski. Prior Lake improved to 8-5 overall (4-3 in the conference) with three games to play before the Section 2AA tourney. The Lakers went into the Lakeville South game on the heels of a 1-0 home win over Rochester Mayo Sept. 24 and a 3-1 loss at No. 6 Bloomington Jefferson Sept. 22. The Lakers are playing host to White Bear Lake today (Saturday, Oct. 1) in a non-league game. Prior Lake has a huge conference game at home versus

The Burnsville girls soccer team continued its stellar defensive surge Sept. 27 with its fi fth shutout in its last six games. The No. 5 -ranked Blaze improved to 10-3 on the season and 5-2 in the South Suburban Conference with a 2-0 blanking of Bloomington Jefferson at home. Junior Meghann Rudolph and ninth-grader Darby Loftus combined for the shutout, making three and two saves, respectively. Both played a half. Lofthus and Rudolph also combined on a shutout in the Blaze’s 1-0 home win over No. 7 Eagan Sept. 22 with Lofthus making three saves and Rudolph making one.

Meanwhile, sophomore Alyssa Blahnik continued her scoring prowess, tallying all three of the Blaze’s in the two wins. She has a team-best 23 goals, giving her 39 for her career in her second season on the varsity. Juniors Tiana Khamvongsa and Maggie Soderholm each had assists in the win over Jefferson, while sophomore Hannah Kierstead assisted in the Blahnik’s goal versus Eagan. The Blaze allowed 11 goals in its fi rst six games, but has given up only three in its last six. The defense has been anchored by Kierstead, juniors Nata lie Muench and Sara Poythress and senior Hannah Freden.

SPORTS BRIEFS

Pack gets spread out Blaze boys send two to Griak, while girls send the team BY TOM SCHARDIN tschardin@swpub.com

The Burnsville boys cross country team’s pack was spread out Sept. 24, but by design. The Blaze had two runners – seniors Cole O’Brien and Abdul Salan – competing at the Roy Griak Invitational at the University of Minnesota’s Les Bolstad Golf Course, the site of this year’s Section 3AA race Oct. 26. Meanwhile, the Blaze’s other runners were racing at the Eagle Invitational at Apple Valley. At the Roy Griak, O’Brien and Salan more than held their own amongst the 472 runners competing from different states on the 5,000-meter course. O’Brien, ranked No. 3 in the Class AA state individual poll, fi nished eighth overall with a time of 16 minutes, 8.19 seconds. Salan took 36th (16:39.24).

T he Bl a z e d id not h ave enough runners for a team score (five are needed). Bismarck won the title with 102 points, while No. 2 -ranked Rosemount was the highest Minnesota team taking third with 271 points. The Irish are in the Blaze’s section, along with No. 9 Eastview. At the Eagle invite, the Blaze ended up eighth out of 18 teams with 235 points. Fifth-ranked Eden Prairie won the title (41), followed by Eastview (67), Lakeville South (106) and Apple Valley (132). Leading the Blaze was ninthgrader Faysol Mamoud, who finished 11th (16:56). Junior Shawn Wong took 28th (17:39). Rounding out the Blaze’s lineup was senior Justin Duda in 64th (18:25), sophomore Sam Houchins in 65th (18:25), senior John Kleinow in 67th (18:29),

sophomore Andrew Brinkman in 98th (19:04) and senior Mike Johnson in 114th (20:16). Burnsville was back on the trails Thursday (results not available at press time). The Blaze will compete in the Victoria Lion’s Invitation at the Chaska Par 30 Golf Course Tuesday, Oct. 4 at 3:30 p.m.

BLAZE GIRLS Meanwhile, the Burnsville girls had its entire varsity team competing at the Roy Griak Sophomore Vivian Hett led Burnsville and was well up in the pack, fi nishing 15th overall with a time of 19:22.1 on the 5,0 0 0 -meter course.

Some kick woes

Losing their momentum

Blaze goes winless in five games BY TOM SCHARDIN tschardin@swpub.com

The Burnsville boys soccer team can’t seem to fi nd a win with the playoffs fast approaching. The Blaze went into its nonconference game Thursday (results not available at press time) at No. 5 Edina winless in its last five games. That included a 4-1 home loss to No. 6 Bloomington Jefferson in a South Suburban Conference game Sept. 27 and a 1-0 overtime loss at home to No. 9 Eagan Sept. 22. Burnsville (5-4-4 overall) is 3-3-1 in the conference with two league games left to play – at Lakeville North Tuesday, Oct 4 and home to Apple Valley Oct. 6. Both games are at 5 p.m. Burnsville has faced four ranked opponents in its last five games, going 0-3-1. The other loss is to No. 8 Eden Prairie (1-0), while the tie is with No. 1 Eastview (1-1). The Blaze also tied Owatonna 2-2, which started the winless streak Oct. 17. There’s no doubt Burnsville’s strength of schedule will benefit them come playoff seeding time. Can the Blaze be in the top-four seeds to get a home game? The top of the field is strong with Eastview (11-0-1), Eagan (9-3-2) and Apple Valley (9-3-1).

BOYS  continued from page 13

“Right now, it really looks like that game could be for the No. 4 and 5 seeds,” said Shebuski. “The Eastview game will also be a good challenge for us right before sections.” The top-three seeds seem pretty certain – No. 8 Eden Prairie (7-2-3), No. 5 Edina (101-1) and Jefferson (7-2-4). Sha kopee ( 6 - 4 -2 ) is a lso vying for the No. 4 seed, but doesn’t have the strength of schedule the Lakers and Eagles do. Although the Sabers do play at Jefferson Oct. 1, so a win there would really enhance Shakopee’s stock. Chanhassen (4-7) and Minnetonka (3-7-2) are also in the field. Section quarterfi nal play begins Oct. 13. Meanwhile, in the win over Lakeville South, seniors Connor Anderson and Zack Fennessy each had a goal and an assist. Junior Logan Bunbury and senior Ben Clements also scored.

Burnsville junior Luis Garcia (8) fights for the ball in the Blaze’s 4-1 loss to Jefferson Sept. 27. Park of Cottage (6-5) and Henry Sibley (8-3) also have winning records, but haven’t played the kind of schedule the Blaze has. Rosemount (3-7-2) and Hastings (1-12) are also in the field. The section quarterfinals begin Oct. 11. Blaze coach Bill Toranza knew this stretch of games to close out the regular season would be very difficult. His teams have played with the ranked clubs with the exception of Jefferson. “This is by far the best group of kids I’ve coached at any level,” said Toranza. “We have no premier players, but instead a tough mindset and we don’t ever give up.” In the loss to Jefferson, the Jaguars scored a penalty kick eight minutes into the second half to take a 4-0 lead. To Burnsville’s credit, the team never gave in and fought to the end. Its goal came with about 28 minutes left to play. Sophomore Alan Garzon scored on a shot from about 25 yards out that just sailed over the Jefferson goalie’s outstretched arms. Senior Dan Nimtz started in goal for Burnsville. He’s started all 13 games this fall and has two shutouts. Sophomore Erik Fenske and junior Dylan Lehrer each had one assist. Senior Andy Rieckoff started his 13th straight game in goal. Against Rochester Mayo, Rieckoff earned his fi fth shutout, making five saves. Bunbury tallied the game-winning goal with just under 10 minutes to play, scoring on a free kick. Against Jefferson, Clements scored for the Lakers in the second half to cut Jefferson’s lead to 2-1. “We came out pretty timid i n t he f i r st h a l f a nd gave them a little too much time and space to operate,” said Shebuski. “We had moments where we were played well in the fi rst half, but our defensive effort as a team and our organization gave us some trouble. They were able to fi nish two of their chances in the fi rst half and it seemed to get us a little frustrated.” “Second half was much better and we defi nitely stepped it up a notch,” added Shebuski. “We defended better as a team and started sorting out the issues from the fi rst half.”

The Prior Lake girls soccer team was hoping to build some momentum after winning its fi rst South Suburban Conference game. But instead, it was more of the same for the Lakers on offense. Prior Lake dropped to 1-5-1 in the conference with a 1-0 loss at Lakeville South Sept. 27. The Lakers went into the game on the heels of a 3-1 setback at home to Northfield a day earlier in a non-league game. Prior Lake (5-7-1 overall) went into the Northfield contest on the heels of a 2-1 conference win at Bloomington Jefferson Sept. 22. “It was the same old story against Lakeville South,” said L a kers coach David Graham. “It was a fairly even game. We just didn’t generate enough offense and we couldn’t capitalize on our few chances.” Prior Lake has just three goals in its seven con ference games and 11 total in 13 contests. Ninth-grader Emily Peterson was leading the team with three goals entering Prior Lake’s non-league home game with Holy Family Thursday (results not available at press time). Peterson had an assist in the loss to Northfield with sophomore Anne Ruelle scoring the Lakers’ goal, her fi rst of the year. Prior Lake’s final two regular season games before the Section 2AA playoffs start Oct. 13 are: versus Bloomington Kennedy Tuesday, Oct. 4 at 5 p.m. and at No. 8-ranked Eastview, Thursday Oct. 6 at 7 p.m. The top-three seeds in the section have already been determined for the most part, but not yet in order with No. 3 Eden Prairie (8-2-3), No. 5 Burnsville (9-3) and Edina (6-2-3) in the mix for the No. 1 spot.

Burnsville also got strong, consistent play and leadership from senior Bailly Drayton, as well as senior Jeannie Taylor, sophomore Abby Soderholm. Burnsville is also making a bid for the No. 1 seed in Section 2AA. Third-ranked Eden Prairie (8-2-3) is coming off a 2-0 loss to Hopkins Sept. 27. Edina (6-2-3) is also vying for the top spot.

Northern pike regulations to change Fifteen lakes in Minnesota will be posted soon with signs that indicate the current northern pike special regulation will end Tuesday, Nov. 1. This change is the result of a new state law that limits the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) to no more than 100 northern pike special or experimental regulation lakes and only allows for length-based rules. “Currently, we are at 115 lakes with length-based regulations,” said Al Stevens, fi shing regulations coordinator for the DNR. “To comply with the new law, we are dropping regulations on 15 lakes where fisheries biologists believe the regulation is least likely to achieve its management goal or is a smaller lake connected to a larger lake that also has a special northern pike regulation.” The 15 lakes with special length-based regulations that will be dropped are Campbell in Beltrami County; Cotton and Big Floyd in Becker County; Louise in Cass County; Latoka in Douglas County; Caribou in St. Louis County; Scrapper, Haskell, Rice and Schoolhouse in Itasca County; North Branch Kawishiwi River, which is part of the Garden Lake chain, in Lake County; Ogechie in Mille Lacs County; Long and Crooked in Stearns County; and Little Sauk in Todd County. These lakes will revert to the standard statewide northern pike regulation – a three-fi sh limit with no more than one greater than 30 inches in possession. These changes are being done temporarily through an expedited rulemaking process to get them in effect by Nov. 1, as the law requires. Stevens said the DNR will also post the lakes this fall and hold local informational meetings in January 2012 before making the changes permanent. Meeting times and locations will be announced in early January.

Prior Lake ninth-grader Kaija Orness fights for the ball in the Lakers’ 2-1 win at Jefferson Sept. 22. It looks like Prior Lake is battling Shakopee (7-3-2) for the No. 4 seed. Prior Lake has the advantage in strength of schedule. Chanhassen (4-6-1), Jefferson (3-8-2) and Kennedy (2-8-1) are also in the field. Sophomore Lauren Thormodsgard has started all 13 games for the Lakers in goal, recording four shutouts. Prior Lake has been shutout six times this fall. In the win over Jefferson, the Jaguars tied the game at 1-1 with a goal on a penalty kick with about 12 minutes left to play. The Lakers got called for what Graham said was a questionable handball violation. But Peterson put the Lakers back on top with about nine minutes left in regulation on a goal from about 20 yards out. Ruelle got the assist. Prior Lake dominated the fi rst half, getting a goal from ninth-grader Kaija Orness. Senior Gabbi Norman booted a ball off the crossbar from about 20 yards out. Ruelle got a foot on the ball near the goal, before Orness banged it into an open net. “We possessed the ball very well all game,” said Graham. time). That game will likely go a long way in determining the No. 1 seed. Eden Prairie beat Edina 1-0 back Sept 13 and those teams play again Oct. 1. Other teams in the field are Shakopee (7-3-2), Prior Lake (5-7-1), Chanhassen (4-6-1), Jefferson (3-8-2) and Bloomington Kennedy (2-8-1) The section quarterfi nals start Oct. 13. Burnsville closes out the regular season at No. 1 Lakeville North Tuesday, Oct. 4 and home to Apple Valley Thursday, Oct. 6 at 7 p.m. Both conference games start at 7 p.m.

The Blaze thought it tied the game with a minute left before the break when Motl scrambled for a 13-yard touchdown run. But the score was called back for a holding penalty. The Blaze had to settle for a 31-yard field goal from Motl with 35 seconds left. Burnsville also had a 60yard touchdown run by Dyson called back in the first quarter on an illegal shift penalty. So one can only wonder how the game cou ld have been different if just one of those scores were not called back. One can also wonder how the game cou ld have been different if not for the hustle of Prior Lake sophomore offensive lineman Drew Trabing. Prior Lake took its first possession of the second half and marched down the field looking to score. However, Blaze senior Brian Callanan picked off sophomore Nick Rooney’s pass near the end zone, broke one tackle and raced down the sideline. It looked like Callanan was going to score and give the Blaze the lead. But Trabing came out of nowhere to track Callahan down near midfield, pushing him out of bounds. The Blaze ended up getting no points off the turnover, despite moving inside the Lakers’ 25-yard line. “That was a huge play,” said Krebs. “Mike made a great pick, but he had to go a long way to score. Their guy had the angle on him and he made a good play. Mike had a tremendous game on defense.” Prior Lake converted four times on fourth-and-1 in the second half, including twice on its second scoring drive.

www.scoreboard.mn The Lakers only attempted five passes with Rooney completing two, both to senior Matt Arends for 20 yards. Krebs said Reger and Motl were on Arends most of the game. Krebs knew his defense had to shutdown Arends to have a chance to win and the Blaze did just that. “We knew we had to stop their big-play g uys,” said Krebs. “They ran the ball better than we hoped they would. On the last drive, we couldn’t get off the field. We didn’t execute up front on the defensive line on some of those short-yardage runs.” Burnsville junior Jamond Bailey led the Blaze on the ground with 43 yards on 10 carries. Motl competed 6 of 8 passes for 8 9 yards and added 33 yards on the ground. Reger caught four balls for 61 yards. “Burnsville has big-play capabilities, but we were able to keep them in front of us and we tackled well,” said Gegenheimer. “They had a couple key third-down conversions that hurt us. We knew down the stretch we needed to keep their offense off the field. We converted some big fourth downs.” Senior Jake Deavers finished with 11 tackles to lead Prior Lake. Prior Lake was back on the field Friday (results not available at press time) at Bloomington Kennedy in a league game, while the Blaze played at No. 6 Lakeville North. Prior Lake returns home Sept. 30 to take on Eagan, while Burnsville is home versus Eastview. Both conference games start at 7 p.m.

Burnsville seventhgrader Amy Le competed in the 100 breaststroke in the Blaze’s loss at Apple Valley Sept. 22.

Lack of depth slows Blaze in the pool T h e B u r n s v i l le g i rl s swimming team’s depth has suffered without sophomore Alexis Dobrzynski. The Blaze dropped to 0-4 in South Suburban Conference dual meets Sept. 22 with a 92-86 loss at Apple Valley. Dobrzynski suffered an ankle injury in the first week of September and was expected to miss at least six weeks. She was a state entrant last year in the 100yard backstroke and she was part of two state relays, so her presence has been sorely missed. The Blaze has been forced to press on in her absence and did win five events in the loss to Apple Valley. The 400 freestyle relay team of senior Teresa DiGregorio, junior Anna Elling and eighth-graders Angela Le and Sidney Christopherson won with a time of 3 minutes, 58.31 seconds. Elling won the 500 freestyle (5:21.72) and was second in the 200 individual medley (2:12.60). Elling’s runner-up fi nish is the fi rst time she hadn’t won an individual conference race i n 2 4 st raight events. She was 18-0 last year and 6-0 in the Blaze’s fi rst three duals this fall. Meanwhile, DiGregorio won the 100 butterfly (1:00.78) and was second in the 100 breaststroke (1:14.98). L e c aptu red t he 2 0 0 freestyle (2:01.85) and was second in the 100 freestyle ( 5 5 . 2 1) . C h r i s t opher s on won the 100 breaststroke (1:14.34). Senior Julia Kramer was second in the 100 backstroke (1:09.57), while junior Kelly Below was runner-up in the 50 freestyle (27.72). Burnsville’s 200 medley relay team of Kramer, Below, seventh-grader Amy Le and junior Savanna Walker also took second (2:07.47).

The Burnsville volleyball team has not fared well against ranked opponents so far this season. The Blaze is still looking for a signature win, although there’s still plenty of season left to get one or two, including the Section 3AAA playoffs. Burnsville fell to 1-5 against ranked teams Sept. 27, getting swept at home by No. 3 Bloomington Jefferson (25-23, 25-14, 25-19).

Mercy!

Kids go hog wild over CTC’s ‘Mercy Watson to the Rescue’ BY BARBARA TIEBEN btieben@swpub.com

A

s a grandmother of home-schooled children, I love to dive into their world of children’s literature. The past several years we’ve immersed ourselves in the world of read-aloud, and now, as my grandsons get older, they are becoming young readers. And what a perfect fit for the new reader is Kate DiCamillo’s Mercy Watson series. The title character, “porcine wonder” Mercy Watson, is wellloved by Mr. and Mrs. Watson, who’ve welcomed this sweet piggy into their home and hearts. They spoil her with treats, most especially toast “with a great deal of butter.” But Mercy is far from a passive pig. She has adventures! Granted, her adventures are usually the result of her constant search for toast and butter cookies, but somehow, over and over, Mercy finds herself the accidental hero. So it was a treat to take my grandsons, ages 4 and 6, to see their friend Mercy on the stage at Children’s Theatre. They were anxious to see their hero save the day. And they were not disappointed. As delightful as the drawings in DiCamillo’s books, the set was cartoony and colorful, the perfect backdrop for the antics the characters. Silliness and suspense reigned as Mercy, played by Sara Richardson, saved Mr. and Mrs. Watson when their second-floor bedroom collapsed into the kitchen. The audience rocked with laughter as the Watson’s cranky neighbor Eugenia Lincoln, played by veteran Twin Cities actress Wendy Lehr, chased Mercy around the yard. There was even a little Minnesota State Fair humor. Can you guess what was carved in the butter head? Mr. and Mrs. Watson, played by Mo Perry and Gerald Drake, were delightfully supportive of their

‘Mercy Watson to the Rescue’ Based on the bestselling books by Kate DiCamillo. Mr. and Mrs. Watson think that 54 Deckawoo Drive will be the perfect home for their family, especially their beloved Mercy. But when Eugenia Lincoln gets wind that her new neighbor is a P-I-G, Eugenia stirs up trouble of the most hilarious sort.

“Mr. and Mrs. Watson … were delightfully supportive of their piglet and full of angst when they had to discipline her for eating the neighbor’s petunias.” piglet and full of angst when they had to discipline her for eating the neighbor’s petunias. Reed Sigmund was the height of silliness as Francine Poulet, the animal control officer. And in a fun Children’s Theatre twist, my grandsons and I were more than happy to join the audience in rescuing Mercy from Francine. The boys were delighted from the minute we saw the “toasty” stage until the closing moments when, as 4-year-old Lucas said, “Toast fell from the sky!” And of course, we all went home for a bedtime treat of toast “with a great deal of butter.”

County Road 21 extension: Smooth ride, but is it dangerous? BY SHANNON FIECKE sfiecke@swpub.com

Crossing the new non-signalized intersection near her home in Shakopee’s Southbridge area “freaks out” Lanae Paaverud. A couple of days after she posted her concerns on Facebook, her fears were realized by another driver. A Savage woman’s vehicle was T-boned while attempting to cross the new four-lane County Road 21 at Southbridge Parkway. The woman’s side air bags deployed, but neither she nor her child was seriously injured. “It’s nerve-racking,” said Paaverud, who lives on Oxford Road and crosses the county road regularly to get to Savage. “Part of it’s because [21] is so wide and there is no speed limit. If there are four lanes going 55 miles per hour and two lanes of turning traffic, that’s really difficult to get across.” Safety at the 21 and Southbridge Parkway intersection is just one of the complaints residents have lodged since County Road 21 opened to traffic three weeks ago.

DANGER? Savage resident Lisa Alland was attempting to cross County Road 21 from southbound Southbridge Parkway on Sept. 21 when she was hit by a work van driven by a Prior Lake man. Alland said she would like to comment but has been advised by an attorney to not speak about the incident. Shakopee Police Chief Jeff Tate said he hasn’t reviewed

Mitch Rasmussen the accident report yet but has had extra patrols monitoring the speed in the area since the road opened. “We haven’t noticed a significant speeding problem yet,” he said. The median lacks ample room for vehicles and pedestrians to wait for passing traffic, so people must be confident that both directions of 21 are clear. A bend in the section of 21 south of the intersection makes it more difficult to gauge traffic, said Paaverud. Anticipated traffic volumes didn’t warrant a signal at the intersection when the road was built, engineers said, although the county anticipates one will be needed in the future. “People have raised that concern of accidents once County Road 21 opens up,” said Bruce Loney, public works director

for the city of Shakopee. “The Rasmussen noted that 21 is a county has the jurisdiction of major roadway and he wouldn’t the intersection, so any chang- advise children to cross there. es would need to be approved by A pedestrian underpass is Scott County.

are driving, Rasmussen said. Also still to be completed is the Eagle Creek Transit Station lot at the intersection of 21 and 16. The park-and-ride lot, anticipated to open in May, will replace the BlueXpress stop at Safe Haven for Youth in Prior Lake. Drivers have noticed longer waits at the realigned intersection of Southbridge Parkway/ County Road 18 since County Road 21 opened. However, it’s likely much of the excess traffic is due to vehicles trying to avoid the interchange construction at County Road 101 and Highway 13 in Savage, said Rasmussen. During a recent weekday morning, county traffic engineer Tony Winiecki observed the heaviest wait times between 7 and 7:30 a.m. After a half hour, all waiting north- and east-bound traffic could make it through when the green light turned. However, westbound traffic was still heavy, with a backup nearly to Crossings Boulevard, at 7:45 a.m. “Bot h people on Cou nty Road 18 and Southbridge Parkway are having to wait fairly equally,” Rasmussen noted. “We’re getting a backup on 18 even though it’s given more of a free movement.” As the novelty of using the new 21 wears off and once the 13/101 interchange is complete, Rasmussen expects traffic to disperse more evenly throughout the area. “It will take some time for traffic to sort itself out,” he said.

“We are also watching and adjusting the timing of the signal at 18 and 21,” he said. Rasmussen said the 21 extension is an important northsouth connector for the county road network. The clogged Bloomington Ferry Bridge will continue to be a problem, he said, but the county can only control the roads within its border. “I empathize with people,” said Rasmussen. “I don’t like sitting in traffic, either. But it’s not our road. We don’t control when it gets expanded or how. We are at the table, though, talking with the Minnesota Department of Transportation.” MnDOT estimates it would cost $44 million to widen the Bloomington Ferry Bridge and its approaches. It can’t simply make the temporary restriping of lanes used during spring flooding permanent, because it doesn’t meet federal highway standards.
