Foreclosure: Employment is No. 1 factor

Former Marine hopes book will help troops stay positive BY FORREST ADAMS fadams@swpub.com

Prior Lake resident Erik Therwanger served four years in the U.S. Marine Corps and got out in 1991, but there isn’t a day that goes by when he doesn’t dwell on the lessons he learned. For over 20 years, Therwanger has dedicated his life to the leadership training he received in the Corps. Now, having self-published three books and developed what he calls “a formula” for success, Therwanger says it’s time to get his third book, “The GOAL Formula: Completing the Big Picture of Your Life,” into the hands of everyone currently serving in the U.S. military. He’s just looking for a few good men, women and children to help him make it happen.

Upcoming Foreclosure Clinic aims to dispel myths, focus on solutions BY AMY LYON editor@savagepacer.com

Foreclosure factors

Until recently, subprime mortgages were pointed out as the central culprit in the majority of Minnesota mortgage delinquencies. A subprime mortgage is often characterized by high interest rates, unfavorable terms and, in many cases, awarded to an individual who will likely have difficulty with repayment. The blame has shifted, though, and unemployment and underemployment are the chief complaints in 60 percent of the home foreclosures in Minnesota, according to 2010 statistics compiled by the Minnesota Home Ownership Center. Payment increases related to adjustable-rate mortgages and tax increases account for only 6 percent of the mortgage defaults. “The Minnesota Home Ownership Center reported in 2010 that 90 percent of people getting services had prime mortgages, and only 10 percent had subprime mortgages,” said Melissa Hansen, homeownership coordinator for the Scott County Community Development Agency. “There has been a big shift.”

LOCAL HELP Carver and Scott counties are working in tandem to curb home foreclosures by offering foreclosure prevention services. Citizens of Scott County previously received foreclosure prevention services through the Carver County Community Development Agency (CDA); however, the agencies are currently in the process of transitioning foreclosure prevention and

counseling services for Scott County residents to the Scott County CDA. During the transition, Scott County homeowners can be served by either the Scott County CDA or the Carver County CDA, but cannot be served by both. A Foreclosure Clinic will be held at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 27 at the Savage Library. “The clinic is open to everyone in both Scott and Carver counties,” said Mary Freyberg, manager of the Scott County Law Library. “We have found that people sometimes travel a bit farther from home to attend a clinic that might be embarrassing to meet a neighbor at.” Hansen will explain the foreclosure process in Minnesota and the rights of homeowners.

Heroin seized during high school search BY FORREST ADAMS fadams@swpub.com

A canine search of cars in the Prior Lake High School parking lot on the morning of Oct. 7 yielded heroin, marijuana, alcohol, tobacco and prescription drugs. An 18-year-old female student was arrested and jailed for fi fth-degree possession of heroin as a result of the sweep. This was the first time a drug search at PLHS has uncovered illegal drugs other than marijuana, according to Savage Police Captain David Muelken. Prior Lake High School Principal Dave Lund said school administration is interpreting the heroin discovery as an isolated incident.

Prior Lake High School parking lot Muelken agreed, noting that only a “trace amount” of the drug was found. With it were tinfoil and a straw, both of which indicate personal use of the drug and no intent to distribute it to other students.

Muelken said he has not seen evidence that heroin is becoming a problem in the high school or in any other area high schools.

Local schools embrace positive reinforcement, offer rewards BY MERYN FLUKER mfluker@swpub.com

A FIRE poster decorates the halls of Eagle Ridge Junior High, reminding students of positive behaviors: focus, integrity, responsibility and excellence.

Eagle Ridge Junior High School is an inferno. Throughout the halls are signs with the word “fi re” decorated with flames. But this fire isn’t a blaze, it’s an acronym: “focus, integrity, responsibility and excellence.” Eagle Ridge is just one of the local schools implementing Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS), an educational framework used to encourage, recognize and reward good behavior. “What we’re trying to do is change behavior so kids can learn more,” said Eagle Ridge Principal Donald

Leake. “If PBIS can keep our students in class, then we’ve succeeded on that front,” added science teacher Kerry Hoeschen, who is on the school’s PBIS team. PBIS works through a system of modeling, setting expectations and then rewarding students for exhibiting expected behavior. At Eagle Ridge, this is all exemplified in the FIRE theme – which came from Nicollet Junior High School, another Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School District building using PBIS. Burnsville High School has also jumped on the FIRE bandwagon. “We get students from Nicollet

and teachers who teach at both buildings,” Hoeschen said. “I think, as we go through the years, it will be nice to have that consistency.” “Having that consistency is always good for kids,” Leake added. “You don’t have to teach them new expectations.” The house areas at Eagle Ridge have bulletin boards adorned with FIRE posters, designed to concisely and explicitly tell students what types of behavior are appropriate and expected in various areas of the building – including the hallways, cafeteria and bathrooms. Then comes the fun part. When staff members see students

exhibiting FIRE behavior, they can reward the students with FIRE cards – little slips of paper praise. Students can then redeem the tickets at the school’s FIRE Store. Similar to the prize counter at an arcade, the FIRE Store contains items – all donated – that students can get for certain amounts of FIRE cards. These gifts include having a teacher bring a student a Starbucks drink or make a student homemade brownies, or even an autographed photo of Hoeschen. “We try to reach a wide range of students with that,” Hoeschen said of the store. “Some of the kids are

“Every leaf speaks bliss to me, fluttering from the autumn tree” wrote English novelist and poet Emily Jane Brontë.

The BIA is supposed to notify Shakopee within 15 days of a trust application being made, and within 30 days ask the tribe and city to meet with the agency about potential sources of disagreement. (The tribe is not obligated to attend.) The city still doesn’t know when the application was actually made. And although the BIA notice mentions a meeting, it has yet to be arranged, said Shakopee Community Development Director Michael Leek. The BIA sent two undated letters — one from its acting regional director saying the agency was in receipt of a landtrust application and a copy of an undated letter from the BIA to tribal Chairman Stanley Crooks acknowledging receipt of the application. The mailing also included DVDs with environmental scans of the property for the two properties, but only one of them was operable, Leek said. To receive a copy of the tribe’s formal application, the BIA said the city had to file a federal Freedom of Information Act request, Leek said. After the city did so, the BIA said the city had to notify the agency of its classification for fee waiver purposes (although the city had already agreed to pay copying fees up to a certain amount). The BIA also said all requested documents had to be reviewed by the tribe before the agency could release them, Leek said. The city commented back on whether the BIA had the author-

SHAKOPEE

Dakotah Parkway

Eagle Creek Ave.

The Shakopee Mdewakanton Dakota Community is asking the federal government to place additional tribal-owned lands into trust, but the federal Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) hasn’t shared the application with the city of Shakopee. S h a ko p e e M ayo r Jo h n Schmitt received notice of the trust application from the BIA on Sept. 7, but the mailing included undated letters and an inoperable DVD. It did not include the actual application, and the BIA has yet to provide a copy after the city filed a Freedom of Information Act request. The property sought for trust status is 122 acres along Eagle Creek Boulevard (the former Shutrop property) and a 2-acre parcel near the tribe’s powpow grounds (former Stemmer property). It’s far less than the 750 acres that led to a lawsuit and eventual consent degree between the city of Shakopee and BIA three years ago. Tribal attorney Willie Hardacker said the general purpose of the application is to “consolidate trust land in particular areas that are somewhat strategic for their general purposes.” “This is part of an ongoing effort to consolidate the tribe’s land base,” he said. Putting land into federal trust removes tribal property from property tax rolls and gives the tribe autonomy in land-use decisions. Due to concerns from the city about the effect of land-trust decisions on local planning, the BIA agreed in 2008 to certain stipulations, including that it would consider impacts of development on land already in trust when considering future applications On the first land-trust application following the consent decree, the BIA is already skirting the requirements of its own agreement, the city says.

ity to withhold documents, especially due to the requirements of the consent decree, Leek said. The Shakopee mayor is not happy with the lack of information coming from the BIA. “We don’t know what [the tribe is] planning. We are forced by law to notify them of anything that we may do,” Schmitt said. “We’re just asking for a level playing field.” Hardacker said the tribe has no problem with the city receiving a copy of its application. “The tribe has intentions to place land into trust going forward, but obviously wants to work cooperatively with the local governments,” he said. The BIA has not returned a request for comment from the Shakopee Valley News. Tribal officials said they couldn’t recall the specific date that the application was made, but that it was sometime in mid- to late- summer. Of the approximately 3,100 acres owned by the tribe in Scott County, nearly half is

in trust, according to land records. Hardacker said the tribe isn’t looking to change the use of the former Shutrop property east of McKenna Road, which is part of a larger parcel acquired from Tollefson Development in 2007. It contains prairie grass for biomass production and is adjacent to approximately 700 acres of land placed into trust in 2007. The tribe still has no specific plans to develop the trust land in that area, Hardacker said, other than operating the organics recycling facility that opened this year off County Road 83. The cities of Prior Lake and Savage collect residential yard waste and transport it to the composting facility. Other neighboring governments, including Shakopee and Burnsville, have been invited to participate at no charge. The small Stemmer parcel, which contains one house, was acquired by the tribe in 2000. It is also adjacent to land already in trust.

Tribe’s wind turbine to undergo maintenance The Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community’s wind turbine will undergo major maintenance in the next few months. Until that time, it will remain offline until a warranty repair is complete to install a new generator. The $1.8 million wind turbine, which has a life expectancy of 30 years, was assembled on the reservation in October 2009. The 8-metric-ton generator inside the nacelle (gearbox shell) will be replaced. At a height of 262.4 feet, repair of the nacelle will require the use of a large crane. The repair itself will take about three days to complete, according to a tribal press release. One day will be required to move equipment and crews into place and remove the generator; another day will be used to install the new generator; and on a third

day, the wiring will be reconnected and the system tested. T he generator wi l l be shipped from China. Stan Ellison, Director of the SMSC Land and Natural Resou rces Depa r t ment explained, “Modern wind turbines are complex machines wit h t housands of movi ng parts … they are not ‘start and forget’ machines but require regular maintenance and supervision. Wind turbines can be quite high-maintenance. This particular issue is a not an unheard-of problem.” The turbine generates about 1.8 million kilowatt hours per year, enough for all residences on the reservation. Energy created by the turbine is metered as it enters the nearby Minnesota Valley Electric Cooperative substation, which provides electricity to the SMSC and the surrounding area.

TRAIL UNDER CONSTRUCTION A construction crew with Northwest Asphalt installed storm sewer pipes on Wednesday – the first step in the construction of the Lynn Avenue trail in Savage. The bituminous trail will include a guardrail to separate cars from pedestrians, and will pass through the east portal of the old railroad bridge and connect to trails that currently dead end to the north and south. The work started Monday and completion of the trail is expected in early November, barring any conflicts with private utilities or delays related to the weather. The estimated cost of the project is $119,000, which will come from the park fees fund.

RELYING ON TRUST If you want to transfer your property after your death without probate, ask an attorney about drawing up the legal document known as a “living trust”. Much like a will, a living trust enables you to transfer any property that you have placed in it to beneficiaries that you have named. Unlike a will, this property transfer avoids probate. Another big advantage of a living trust is that it can be very flexible. It can be used to transfer all, or only some, of your assets. In addition, unlike wills, living trusts do not become part of the public record during the probate process. Living trusts derive their name from the fact that they are created while you are alive. If you have any questions about trusts, wills, probate, or any aspect of this complicated area of law, please call us to make an appointment with one of our experienced and compassionate attorneys. We will work hard to draw up documents that will make sure your wishes are carried out, even after you’re gone. In addition to wills and trusts, we also provide representation in the areas of family law mediation, real estate law, personal injury and bankruptcy. Call 952226-1202 today to schedule an appointment. We are located at 6001 Egan Drive, Suite 140. Multiple Services, Singular Commitment. HINT: Living trusts are termed to be “revocable” because you can revoke or change them at any time, for any reason, prior to your death.

HIGHWAY 13 IMPROVEMENTS

New to the area? $6.7 million contract awarded to Ames Construction We’ll help make the move easier. The Savage City Council awarded the contract Oct. 3 for the second phase of Highway 13 improvements to Ames Construction, Inc., with a project bid amount of just over $ 6.7 million. Ames Construction submitted the lowest bid, which was still 4.9 percent over the engineer’s estimate. Bids were also received from S.M. Hentges and Sons, Inc. ($ 6.8 million) and Northwest Asphalt, Inc. ($7.8 million). Ames Construction is currently leading the Highway 13/101 interchange reconstruction project. Phase two of the Highway 13 improvement project is expected to improve traffic mobility and safety along Highway 13. Specific aspects of the project include the realignment of the Quentin Avenue intersection;

Additional items approved by the city council at its Oct. 3 meeting related to the Highway 13 improvements included approving an agreement with Bolton and Menk, Inc. for construction administration services, approving an agreement with WSB Associates, Inc. for construction surveying services, and approving an agreement with Union Pacific Railroad Company for improvements to

RAILROAD Councilwoman Christine Kelly questioned the agreement with Union Pacific Railroad, and “What, if anything, can we do to ensure the schedule of completion with the railroad?” The proposed improvements to Lynn Avenue, north of Highway 13, involve a roadway crossing of the existing Union Pacific railroad tracks. All work related to the railroad crossing is designed and constructed by Union Pacific, and the city is responsible for reimbursing them for the time and materials required to complete the work. The work will include new gates with f lashing lights, a cantilevered overhead signal, new concrete crossing surfaces, rails, ties and ballast with a cost estimate of $420,000.

FROM THE NEWSPAPER STAFF

Votes have even greater impact in odd-year election The city of Savage traditionally sees a 10 to 15 percent voter turnout during its odd-year elections for city council members. Clearly, it doesn’t take much for a few votes to tip the scales. But is low voter turnout the upside or the downside of an odd-year election? Arguments go both ways. On one hand, voters are not bombarded during an odd-year election by the flurry of national campaign ads. Some would say voters are more focused on local races. On another hand, voters may not feel the sense of urgency that comes with an even-year presidential election and may leave the local vote up to others. In 2009, only 2,021 of the 15,662 registered voters (12.8 percent) in Savage voted. That’s a sharp contrast to the presidential election the year before when 93 percent of Savage voters went to the polls. Savage City Administrator Barry Stock can’t put his finger on why so few people get out and vote during odd-year elections. “Maybe it’s apathy or maybe they’re generally satisfied,” he said. But a word of caution when leaving the vote up to others: “A lot of strange things can happen in an odd-year election. There have been instances where the public thought it was a nobrainer that an individual would be elected so they didn’t come out and vote,” said Stock. The moral of that story, don’t take anything for granted. It’s not unheard of for candidates to win by only a handful of votes. There are three candidates running for two open seats on the Savage City Council: Joe Julius, Christine Kelly (incumbent) and Al McColl (incumbent). The candidates were asked to fill out a questionnaire and their responses will be featured in next week’s paper. Mayor Janet Williams was also asked to fi ll out the form although she’s running unopposed; voters have the option to write in a candidate not listed on their election ballot. The questions posed to candidates focus on the city budget, economic

Also on the ballot this year, Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School District 191 will ask voters to approve the renewal of an existing levy that will maintain its current funding through the current 2012-13 school year. I don’t imagine that many citizens want to attend all of the city council and school board meetings with Savage Pacer staff. We report the news, but we don’t make it. Instead, your elected city and school officials represent you, the taxpayer, when they discuss and vote on the matters that affect your taxes, transportation and rights. So if you like the way your Savage city government is run, vote to elect a candidate with your philosophies and goals. If you want to see changes, research candidates whose thinking is in line with your vision. Leaving the vote up to others is not an acceptable option. With substantially less voter turnout than an even-year election, each vote really does have the ability to make an impact on Nov. 8. (Amy Lyon is the editor of the Savage Pacer.

GUEST COMMENTARY

Clean streets mean clean water Do you know that everyone has lakefront property? When it rains, the rain water (storm water) picks up leaves, dirt, grass clippings, lawn fertilizer and anything else on our streets and driveways and carries it into storm drains. The storm drains are connected to underground pipes that carry the dirty storm-water runoff into ponds, wetlands, lakes and rivers. Your driveway and lawn are connected to a nearby lake or river, so you can help keep our waters clean and rake up any leaves and other yard debris this fall. Residents are encouraged to organize their own Community Clean Up for Water Quality this fall with help from the Scott Clean Water Education Program. Gather your friends and neighbors to rake, sweep and bag leaves from lawns, driveways, and the curb and gutter, then take them to the city composting facility. Students from Prior Lake-Savage Area Schools EcoTeam are planning to rake and sweep leaves, dirt and organic debris on city streets and boulevards in area neighborhoods this fall. The debris will be bagged and hauled to the city of Prior Lake compost facility for proper disposal. Phosphorus is a major source of water pollution to our lakes and rivers. City streets and parking lots provide a pathway for phosphorus to get into the water. Phosphorus on streets and parking lots comes from decaying organic matter like leaves,

Did you know … Collecting five bags of leaves prevents one pound of phosphorus from entering our lakes and rivers, which can create 1,000 pounds of algae. grass clippings and dirt. When leaves and other organic debris gets washed into the storm drains, the pipes eventually empty into nearby lakes or rivers. The city of Prior Lake has developed an aggressive street sweeping program in order to prevent leaves and organic debris from entering our lakes and rivers, which can contribute to algae blooms. Algae blooms decrease water quality and consume oxygen needed for native plant and wildlife survival. Even though the city regularly sweeps the streets in the fall, residents are encouraged to help with cleaning up leaves and organic debris from their lawns, driveways and curb and gutters and dispose of it properly at a compost facility or for curb-side pickup.

COMMUNITY VOICES

Extreme Couponing a little much, but I’m still a clipper I recently walked through our living room and a show on television caught my eye. I’d heard about Extreme Couponing but never felt compelled to watch it. It didn’t seem worth the time, as my interest level was hardly as extreme as that of those showcased. But this day, I could not resist taking a seat once I saw the organizational patterns of some of the participants. One man dedicated six to eight hours before each shopping excursion, verifying store specials, scrounging the Internet for printable coupons and organizing the pieces of paper in thick binders. He followed this process up with a four-hour shopping trip, of which the ultimately free contents were loaded on a trailer hitched to his SUV and stockpiled in his garage-turnedpersonal warehouse. It all seemed so, well, extreme! All this went through my head as I stood at my kitchen countertop, going through my weekly coupon-cutting motions. I have neither the time nor desire to devote 12 hours towards any form of shopping. After 20 years of being a clipper, I’ve certainly formed a love-hate relationship with coupons, but the dollar savings always seems to trump the drudgery of the task itself. And though I am not obsessive about it, I cannot seem to break up with the process no matter how much, at times, I seem to loathe it. Perhaps that’s because I’ve cemented in my mindset that I am clipping money out of the paper, which is absolutely true. From the time I could drive until I moved out at 18, my mother incentivized me to make money by using coupons. She was busy raising four kids, and dispatching trucks

out of our kitchen left her unable to leave the house while trucks were on the road. She offered that if I did her weekly grocery shopping, buying customary and reasonable purchases, she would compensate me 50 percent of the coupons I clipped and saved off the grocery bill. (She saved the other 50 percent, and her time). This supplemented my other forms of employment and solidified the habit. Now that I am spending my own hard-earned dollars on groceries, there still comes that certain satisfaction in seeing just how high I can get that cost-savings figure. That satisfaction is validated every so often when the person behind me in the grocery store checkout raises an eyebrow when they see how much I’ve saved. (I stretch that amount even further by collecting the Box Tops and Kemps lids from the products I’ve purchased and donating them to Glendale Elementary School, as the program established there benefits not only our bottom line, but the school’s as well.) While it might seem like a lot of work, it takes very little time relative to the benefit when looking at the big

picture. I conservatively estimate that I save over $3,000 a year on groceries alone using coupons, and it really only takes a few minutes of my Sunday morning to clip and sort, and then to discard the expireds. There is a cost to couponing through, and perhaps it’s my cross alone to bear. I am not referring to the ongoing ribbing I get from my brothers, neither of whom would be caught dead clipping a coupon. Ceaseless after all these years, they humor themselves by notifying me that there is a show about me on TLC. Rather, I alone have to do all the shopping, but not because my husband does not offer to. Lucky for him, and thanks to my neuroticism, I simply do not trust that he will be able to (or care to) maximize his coupon usage to the extent I am able. Hence, he has been able to wash his hands of this weekly task. I have no doubt he appreciates my efforts. Yet he jokes that couponing leads me to buy things that I otherwise might not buy. I would argue that the very discipline it takes to be a regular clipper transfers into making sensible purchase decisions while in the store. Even so, I will not beat myself up for buying two packages of Double Stuff Halloween Oreos, something, to his point, I normally would not buy. After all, I had a buy-one-get-onefree coupon. It was a good deal, and families need to be on the lookout for good deals these days. Because money does not grow on trees. It comes in the Sunday paper.

LETTERS FROM READERS AWARENESS MONTH

Donate to the little guys who help one-on-one Like Ms. Eastman, I am also a former breast cancer patient, and I also hate the month of October. The media blitz of glossy ads all suggest that if you make the walk or

send the contribution, you are directly helping your mothers, daughters and sisters. Bah. None of your money helps individuals. At best, it pays already well-paid researchers to do their jobs; at worst, it supports well-funded administrators in their quest for even more bucks. If you really want to help, donate to the little guys, the very few, very small organizations that help real cancer

patients one-on-one with rides to the clinic, home help, prosthetics or utility bill assistance. Cancer has a huge and long-lasting impact on real patients’ daily lives and your money can have a real impact there.

Banding together to better understand raptor habits TEKIELA NATURE SMART

The night before, Professor Jerry Niemi presented a wonderful overview of the past 39 years of hawk banding at the ridge. For those of you who don’t know what hawk banding is, let me explain. Migrating hawks are lured into traps where researchers grab the birds without causing any harm. A series of measurements are taken, the bird’s age and sex are determined, and a metal band containing a unique identifying number is affi xed to the bird’s leg. All of this takes just a few minutes and the bird is released back into the wild to continue on its way south. Meanwhile at another location, hawk counters watched and counted the total number of birds flying over the ridge. Professor Niemi pulled together some amazing statistics from the banding and watching of hawks. During the past 39 years that banding and counting has taken place at the ridge,

more than 2 million hawks have been counted on their migration south. That averages to about 80,000 birds per season and includes 27 different raptor species. Off these, 23 species have been caught and banded. From 1972 to 2010, more than 100,000 individual hawks have been caught and banded at a separate location away from the hawk counters and watchers along with the crowds of people that come to witness this autumn spectacle. Tucked away back in the woods, the hawk banders toil away catching hawks. Of the 100,000 hawks that have been caught, 60,000 h ave b e en sh a r p - sh i n ne d hawks. If you are not familiar with the sharp-shinned hawk, it is a small woodland hawk that is the second most common hawk species to fly over Duluth’s Hawk Ridge. At this point you might be asking yourself why they band the hawks. The short answer is: research. The only way to obtain any kind of information, such as where the hawks go, how long it takes to get there and how long they live, is to band them. Now here is the sobering news. Of the 60,000 sharp-shins that have been banded at the ridge during the past four decades, only 327 birds with bands have been recovered. This is a normal recovery rate for bird banding, but it illustrates the difficulty in obtaining good information when doing field research. A huge effort must

The morning broke clear and crisp, another pictureperfect autumn morning in one of my favorite places. Stepping from my truck I could see that the sun was just about to emerge over the watery horizon of Lake Superior. Hiking a short distance up a trail in the woods, then scrambling up some large rocks, I reached a small clearing that gave me an unobstructed view of the “big lake” just as the sun breached the horizon. Standing there in the cool morning air I could see my breath and feel the warmth of the fi rst rays of sun warming my face. I let my mind wander back in time to the hundreds of times I stood in this exact spot and watched the sun rise. I am thinking about the past 20 plus years I’ve spent coming to Hawk Ridge in Duluth. As a biologist, this is a one of the top spots in the entire country to witness a high volume of migrating hawks. As a wildlife photographer, the ridge – as many of us call it – is unsurpassed for photography. I have so many incredible memories from the past couple decades of good friends and great photography at the ridge. Most recently I visited not to photograph but to give a talk about birds at the Hawk Ridge weekend celebration. Hundreds of bird watchers from around the nation gathered at the ridge for a weekend to share knowledge and re-establish friendships.

LIVESREMEMBERED Doris Maxine Brown

Eric Robert Larson

On Valentine’s Day, Feb. 14, 1929 in Cleveland, OH, Doris Maxine was born to parents Norman and May (Ecklund) Dunkle. Moving to Minneapolis at a young age, she grew up with her four brothers and two sisters, creating many fond memories along the way. Doris graduated from Washburn High School in Minneapolis. On April 6 at the Richfield United Methodist Church in South Minneapolis, Doris married a young man named Stanley Brown. They were blessed with three children, Marlene, Susan and Michael. Family was always most important to Doris. She was able to stay home to raise her children until Michael was older. Entering the work force, Doris worked as a cashier for Jim Brady Drug Store in Savage. Expanded her horizons, she then worked for many, many years as a cook for the Burnsville School District, until she retired in the late 90’s. As a couple, Doris and Stanley loved deer hunting, casting a rod into the lake and riding the snowmobiles during the winter. As a family, they especially treasured their summers visiting Doris’ sister’s cabin in Randall, MN. In December of 1979, her world changed with sudden passing of her husband. In her spare time, Doris loved working with the flowers, enjoyed the companionship of her dog, Buster and spending time with her family. A dedicated woman of faith, Doris also loved having coffee with friends and co-workers. At the age of 82 and a resident of Savage, Doris passed away peacefully with her daughter at the side the morning of Tuesday, Oct. 11, 2011 at The Lodge on Natchez in Elko.

acronym that Therwanger said is consistent with the message of his company, Think GREAT. He uses GREAT as an acronym for goals, reasons, expectations, actions and tracking. The book consists of strategies and techniques that one can follow toward the systematic achievement of personal and professional goals. He said it’s “a formula that works through the toughest of times.” Therwanger knows. The formula is based on leadership training he learned in the Marine Corps, but it was during a period of extreme difficulty that he put everything together. Gina was diagnosed with cancer 10 months after they were married and Erik became her caregiver. They were newlyweds, lived in a small apartment and didn’t have a dime in savings. Gina’s oncologist tasked Erik with keeping her positive. “That was very tough to do when she was getting chemotherapy,” Therwanger said. But he reflected back on lessons learned in the Marines. “No matter how bad things are you can control two things. You can control your thoughts and you can control your actions,” he said. “What I found was as I started to talk about goals with her, she would get that spark back in her eye. She would come to life. She would talk about how great the future would be, rather than how tough the present is.” It was during the next five years of turmoil when Erik said he developed the GOAL Formula. He left his job to serve as Gina’s caregiver and Gina was placed on disability. They accumulated debt, lost their vehicle and had the utilities shut off several times. After Gina was diagnosed with cancer a fourth time, they moved to be closer to Gina’s family in Prior Lake about one month ago, bringing with them their daughter, Erika, 5, and Brandyn, 22, Erik’s oldest of two sons from a previous marriage. The younger son, Jacob, 20, remained in California. Therwanger is a volunteer ambassador for the American Cancer Society in Minnesota and one of the event chairs for the upcoming Relay for Life in Scott County.

SPONSORSHIP Operation GOAL Formula is a sponsor program Therwanger developed to get the public involved with supporting troops by sending them his book. Through Operation GOAL Formula, individuals, business and organizations can purchase copies of the book at a discount, and then the books are delivered to troops via care packages through organizations like The USO, America Adopts a Soldier, Beyond the Yellow Ribbon and Blue Star Mothers. Each book will contain a personal message from the buyer to the service member and an opportunity for the service member to write back to the sender. Therwanger has five levels of sponsorship available: bronze sponsor, which involves purchasing 10 to 24 copies at $12 per book; silver sponsor (25-49 copies); gold sponsor (50 to 99 copies); platinum sponsor (100 to 199 copies) and patriot sponsor (200-plus copies). Therwanger said getting his book into the hands of service members will help boost troop morale, will keep them focused on a positive future, and will assist with their reintegration into society and family life after a tour of duty abroad.

RECEPTIVE AUDIENCE Information about Operation GOAL Formula can be found on the Web site for Think GREAT and contains testimonials from business leaders, private citizens and service members, but the book, “The GOAL Formula,” has not been officially endorsed by the Department of Defense. Therwanger said the contents of the book are applicable to all aspects of life, but specific to service members he can “talk the talk.” He said spouses of service members have also expressed thanks to him for creating the book. Therwanger also does sales training and inspirational speaking based on his blend of self-help and leadership-based training. And if the testimonials on his Web site are any indication, there’s a receptive audience for the message.

SPIRITUAL REFLECTIONS

Love is fundamentally about giving, not getting How does one celebrate 25 years of marriage? It’s not as if that particular milestone in a marital journey is innately distinct from the year before or the one hopefully to follow. Yet our culture nods sternly toward the expectation that any couple who has made it to 25 years, and is not in the midst of divorce proceedings, ought to do something special to mark the achievement. Anticipating that my wife, Beth, and I would attain said landmark, we planned to do it right and travel this summer for a week to Hawaii. As the day approached and time constraints were more carefully considered, we modified the plan to five days in the Canadian Rockies. Later, fiscal realities were assessed (we live on one salary and bankroll four teenagers) and our anniversary week was recast as jetting away for four days on the east coast. In the end, we took off in our minivan for three days on the North Shore. We could not have been happier in a penthouse suite overlooking the French Riviera. The point was that we were alone, celebrating a quarter-century of life together. We enjoyed every minute, recognizing with grateful hearts that many marriages never survive to see this day. There we were, best friends, still in love, playing together, praying together, enjoying long talks until speech gave way to silence that had long ago ceased to prove awkward. In one of our more serious talks I asked Beth what we got right. God only knows how many things we’ve gotten wrong. Marriage is a tough slog between two sinners who have to figure a lot out in order to survive. What did we get right? After a long pause, Beth answered, “Everything!� Even after dinner out and the prospect of a couple of

Dan

MILLER SPIRITUAL REFLECTIONS

days away from the kids, I was blindsided by such a glowing assessment. But her one word response spoke volumes, having little to do with reality and much to do with attitude. Beth could concentrate for three minutes on my faults and failings as a husband and have enough material to remain bitter right through our 50th anniversary. But she has consistently chosen to view her husband in the best possible light. She is no pushover, let me tell you. Nor is she anything close to a Pollyanna. But as analytical, tough-minded and unrelenting as she can sometimes be, Beth persistently chooses to see what is best in me. That is pure grace. It is also a highquality lubricant for the gears of marriage. Believing as we do that marriage is not only a gift from God, but also a tool he uses to deepen and change his people, we talked at length about the purifying crucible of marriage. Beth shared that one of the critical moments of growth for her came early in our relationship. She realized that I loved God more than I loved her and that reality troubled her. She explained the innate yearning as a young woman to be all important to her man – to suffer no rival for my affection, not even God. But in an epiphany she came to understand that the

right ordering of affections is crucial to the health of a marriage. As creatures made in God’s image we must learn to love only what we ought, and to the degree that we should, such that God is glorified as the giver of every good gift. Since God is the creator and source of all goodness, to love him supremely is to love everything else rightly. Beth realized that if I loved her more than I loved God, my love for her would prove disordered and small. If I loved God first, I would love her optimally. She now rests in the satisfaction of that truth. One of my epiphanies came when I realized that marriage is not about getting your way or attaining a woman who will meet every need and desire. Rather marriage is a calling to love and value one woman as an exclusive gift from God. It is a calling to pour my life into a creature of distinct design so that she will grow closer to God through my nurture, finding refuge in my devotion and fidelity to her. In those early days I realized that love was fundamentally a matter of giving, not getting. After 25 years, I’ve discovered that the exercise of love is itself a receiving, never dutiful sacrifice. Twenty-five years of joyful marriage does not make us experts. We won’t be writing any books. But perhaps it earns a couple the privilege to point to the wisdom of God’s counsel and the wonder of his grace. He is the ultimate gift from whom all blessings flow. Thank you, Father, for Beth.

Eager students surround Minnesota Vikings mascot Viktor the Viking in the Hidden Valley Elementary School gym following the Fuel Up to Play 60 kickoff assembly on Thursday morning. Hidden Valley received a $4,000 State Health Improvement Program grant through the Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School District’s Smart Choices program to fund the school’s running club, the Hidden Valley Mileage Club. The dollars will go to provide exercise equipment and healthy snacks. Viktor taught students about good eating habits and the importance of exercising for 60 minutes a day, the goals of the NFL’s Fuel Up to Play 60 initiative.

Many schools in the Prior Lake-Savage Area School District have also embraced PBIS. Redtai l Ridge, Grainwood, Glendale and WestWood elementary schools all use the PBIS framework, as do Twin Oaks and Hidden Oaks Middle Schools. Each school has its own methods of implementation, but they tend to involve acronyms – leading to an alphabet soup of behavior reminders. At Glendale and Grainwood, it’s all about caring. Or rather, CARES – cooperation, assertion, responsibility, empathy and self-control. “Our objective has been to speak a common language and have common expectations,” said Grainwood Principal Patrick Glynn. “Common practices to identify and reward positive behavior.” T he CA R E S acrony m i s promi nent t h roughout t he s cho ol : a s et of m at ch i n g CARES banners greet guests in the gym and the cafeteria. CARES is also embedded in the school’s logo and CARES posters also cover many of the building’s walls. G r a i nw o o d , l i k e E a g l e Ridge, took things to a new level by making T-shirts featuring the PBIS acronym. This will be the second year Grainwood does the shirts, which are available to each student for $5 – scholarships are available for families who can’t afford them. One day, the staff and students wear the shirts and a photo is taken of everyone. The photo hangs in the Grainwood lobby. All of this not only boost

school spirit but reinforces PBIS school-wide, which is a paramount component of the framework. “It’s bringing that cohesiveness to the school,” Glynn said. For Twin Oaks students, PBIS is all about being LAKERS – learners, accountable, kind, effort, respect and safe. “I think it’s gone very well,” said Principal Dan Edwards. “I think it has helped give us some common language as a staff for our expectations of behavior.” Grainwood, Twin Oaks and Hidden Oaks, just like Eagle Ridge, use a system of handing out tickets to students in recognition of positive behavior. The 719 schools don’t have a store, though. They prefer to use a system of weekly drawings where winners receive donated prizes, like toys and candy. Twin Oaks also uses behavior modeling but with a twist: math teacher Amber Siegfried, a member of the school’s PBIS committee, has enlisted her students to help her make a series of funny videos with rocking soundtracks, all designed to entertain while showing students what LAKERS behavior looks like within the walls of Twin Oaks. “As a committee, we thought it would be a good idea to visually show [students] what they need to do,” she said. Siegfried also uses the LAKERS acronym in her speech, referencing it during her classes – about five times a day, she estimated – and reinforcing the messages and values. “Is that LAKERS behavior,” is a common refrain.

IMPACT For Eagle Ridge, the impact of PBIS has been almost immediate. Less than two months into the school year, Leake

www.savagepacer.com and Hoeschen have already noticed the environmental differences. “Kids are washing tables,” Hoeschen said, referencing improved personal responsibility in the cafeteria. “A n d t h e y ’ r e s w e e pi n g f lo or s,” L e a ke c ont i nue d . “We’ve set the expectation and they’re meeting it … It’s amazing to me, walking through the halls this year compared to last year. There’s considerably less trash.” I n addition, Ho eschen and Leake praised how PBIS framework allows students to remain in class and engaged as opposed to traditional methods to deal with behavior, such as suspension and detention. “ T hi s c a n g ive u s more time to teach in class,” Leake said. “If we can get rid of more distractions and nuisances, then we can have more time to teach.” While the fi rst year of PBIS implementation focuses on the 80 percent of students who adopt and adapt, there is still a “solid 20 percent,” according to Leake, who haven’t yet been reached by the initiative. He and Hoeschen said they will build on the strides they’ve made with the 80 percent, but how remains to be seen. In the meantime, they are both committed to continuing PBIS in the future, because – in Hoeschen’s words – “it’s needed.” “On a day to day basis, it’s hard to reward them for doing the right thing when you ask them to,” he said. “It’s a thank you, is what it is.”

READING ON RECORD

Enrollment gains come with â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;stress pointsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; BY MERYN FLUKER mfluker@swpub.com

After predictions of slowed growth and eventual declines, the Prior Lake-Savage Area School District has escaped its own self-fulfi lled prophecy, at least for now. According to a report released on Monday, Oct. 10, the district boasts 7,180 students â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a nearly 2 percent increase from this time last year, when the districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s enrollment totaled 7,042. That 138-student uptick is a more than 650-percent leap from the mere 21 net students District 719 added by this point on the 2010-11 calendar. The development is a departure not only from the â&#x20AC;&#x153;virtually fl atâ&#x20AC;? enrollment witnessed in 201011 but also the districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own predictions of slowed growth. While increased enrollment tends to be good news for school districts â&#x20AC;&#x201C; additional students mean additional state funding â&#x20AC;&#x201C; District 719 is experiencing some â&#x20AC;&#x153;stress pointsâ&#x20AC;? in its secondary classrooms, according to Director of Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment Jeff Holmberg, who presented the numbers at Mondayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s regular Prior Lake-Savage Area School Board meeting.

Parents, take note: A group of youngsters attended a school board meeting on Thursday, Oct. 6, and they sat attentively on the floor. All it took was for District 191 Superintendent Randy Clegg to put on a red night cap and read them a book about llamas. He did this as part of a nationwide program called Read for the Record. The group on Thursday night was among more than 2,000 kids in the BurnsvilleEagan-Savage School District who were read the book â&#x20AC;&#x153;Llama, Llama Red Pajamaâ&#x20AC;? that day.

Hidden Oaks Middle School continues to be the largest of the districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sixth-through-eighth grade buildings, with 940 students to Twin Oaks Middle Schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 797 students.

ditional faces. Prior Lake High Schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s enrollment jumped 61 students, to 2,298 from last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2,237 Lakers, despite closing open enrollment once again. Bridges Area Learning Center, now in its third year of operation, has 74 students enrolled â&#x20AC;&#x201C; six shy of its 80-pupil capacity and 30 more than the school counted at this time last year. Average class sizes for core courses â&#x20AC;&#x201C; math, science, social studies and English â&#x20AC;&#x201C; range from 26 to 36 in the middle schools and 25 to 40 for the high school. Those problem areas arose in part due to the districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shift this year to a six-period secondary school day. â&#x20AC;&#x153; W hen we i mplemente d the six-period day schedule, we knew there would be some growing pains and so this is something that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to be looking at this year, of what weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to be doing to address some of those class sizes as well as the registration process so we can balance out some of those unequal class sizes and provide more choice for students,â&#x20AC;? Holmberg said. Superintendent Sue Ann Gruver will work with Holmberg and secondary-level administrators to devise solutions to address the infl ated class sizes and will bring the recommendations to the board in preparation for the second semester, which will begin on Monday, Jan. 30. Holmberg attributed the middle schoolsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x153;stress areasâ&#x20AC;? to quarter-semester course options, which â&#x20AC;&#x153;led to some of the difficulties in getting balanced class sizes for every class.â&#x20AC;? As for the high school, Lund said that sections of Advanced Placement, accelerated and honors courses â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which can have higher numbers because there may not be multiple sec-

tions offered for each course, as opposed to â&#x20AC;&#x153;standard core classesâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; boosted the average class-size fi gures. â&#x20AC;&#x153; I t hi n k we ne e d to get through this first semester and see where those AP classes level out,â&#x20AC;? Lund said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Traditionally, what happens is we have students that we fi nd out have been misplaced and if they come out, sometimes we can take two AP sections and combine them into one section and then reallocate that FTE [full-time equivalent staff member] into another area.â&#x20AC;?

ELEMENTARY The districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s elementary population dropped by 35 students this year, down from 3,106 last year to 3,071 as of Monday. Dist rict 719 ad minist rators have spent much time and energ y addressing the anticipated drops in elementary enrollment â&#x20AC;&#x201C; often cited as a consequence of slowed economic growth â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and are attempting to combat the drop, which is expected to worsen in future school years. They plan to explore initiatives including world-language and science, technology, engineering and math immersion schools. T he d i st r ic t c om m it t e e studying those educational options is set to make recommendations to the board later this year. Overall district elementary average class sizes range from 18.96 to 26.5. Holmberg said the district typically likes to wait until October to gauge its enrollment because the month of September includes a lot of student migration, both in and out of the district. However, he was fi rst to note that these numbers are anything but fi nal and he, along with his administrative colleagues, will continue to monitor District 719â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s student

A 17-year-old assault victim from Savage most likely knew her alleged assailant, a 26-yearold male from Minneapolis, according to court documents. Now, by court order, Torbio Palacios-Visoso may not have contact with the victim. He was arrested on Oct. 3 on probable cause that he had committed domestic assault strangulation and fi fth-degree domestic assault. He now faces misdemeanor charges resulting from the incident. The bail hearing for Palacios-Visoso was held on Oct. 5. The conditions of his release from jail include that he remain law abiding, abide by a domestic no contact order, not

leave Minnesota without written court approval, and not use or possess firearms or other dangerous weapons. He must also make all future court appearances, the next of which is an arraignment scheduled at 1 p.m. on Oct. 31. According to the complaint, Scott County alleges that at 1:53 p.m. on Oct. 3 Savage Police officers were dispatched to a business in Savage where a caller alleged a domestic assault was in progress. The caller described the male assailant, and the complainant indicated that the male was striking a female and trying to force her inside a white vehicle that was parked in front of the business. By the time police arrived the incident was over, and the victim had run away from

the scene. Officers located a male matching the suspect’s description and questioned him. They did not immediately locate the female. Additional of ficers were called to assist in a search for the victim. At one point four patrol officers and two detectives were involved. They eventually located the 17-year-old girl from Savage a short distance away. She claimed that she had been strangled by the man, and she showed officers the marks on her neck, which they determined were consistent with her claim, according to the police report. The police report indicated the girl’s injuries did not require immediate medical attention Police eventually cleared the scene at 3:39 p.m.

BRIEFS

Increased seat belt patrols start Friday Law enforcement agencies in Scott County are conducting increased seat belt patrols during one of the state’s largest belt enforcement campaigns of the year, Oct. 14-27. The campaign aims to increase belt use to stop preventable deaths and injuries. Statewide, in the last three years, 409 unbelted motorists were killed and 814 suffered serious, life-altering injuries. The enforcement effort will also include a nighttime seat belt enforcement focus. Each year, more than 60 percent of the nighttime fatalities (9 p.m.3 a.m.) are not buckled up. The Scott County Sheriff’s Office and area police departments will take part in the campaign. The state’s primary seat belt law requires passengers in

potential consequences for the student violators, citing privacy concerns. However, the high school’s student handbook indicates students who violate the policy will be suspended from school and all district activities after a fi rst offense. After returning to school, the student is required to participate in an educational self-assessment group called “Insight.” A second offense would result in additional days of suspension and outside assessment of the student’s chemical health status, at the family’s expense, prior to readmission to school. Two K-9 dogs from the Lakeville Police Department, one from the West St. Paul Police Department and one from the Scott County Sheriff’s Department sniffed out the six student violations.

“This was a young adult who made a poor decision,” he said. Sgt. Dan Bianconi of the Dakota County Drug Task Force said he knows that students are using heroin, but seizures of the drug from students are uncommon. The drug search took place shortly before 8:30 a.m. and was conducted at the request of the high school administration. A similar search is conducted every year around this time, and this one was not done in response to any suspicion that somebody among the student body might have heroin, Muelken said. Lund declined to talk about

Jury: Greene Sr. ‘not guilty’ of arson On Tuesday, a Scott County Jury heard closing arguments in the county’s case against Elbert Eugene Greene Sr., of Prior Lake following six days of trial. After four hours of deliberation the jury returned with a verdict that the 65-year-old was “not guilty” of fi rst-degree arson. In January 2010, the Scott County Attorney’s Office fi led charges against Greene Sr. in connection with a December 2004 fi re that destroyed a home owned by the Greene family at 14730 Carriage Lane in Prior Lake. Green Jr. is scheduled for a Settlement Conference at 9 a.m. on Oct. 26.

Also cited for chemical violations were a 17-year-old girl for possession of alcohol; a 16-yearold boy for possession of tobacco; a 17-year-old boy for possession of marijuana; and a 17-year-old boy for fi fth-degree possession of prescription drugs. A search of lockers inside the school did not reveal any illegal drugs.

HEROIN USE The Drug Trends Report for 2009, released by the Minnesota Department of Human Services, showed the use of heroin and other opiates on a significant upward trend in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area in 2009. However, Bianconi said task force heroin seizures from the population at large this year are down “significantly” compared to 2010 and 2009.

The Prior Lake girls tennis team is close breaking down the state-tournament door for the fi rst time since 1991. The unbeaten and top-seeded Lakers (18-0) went into the Section 3AA title match Thursday (results not available at press time) needing to beat thirdseeded Rosemount to earn a state berth. The two teams met in the South Suburban Conference season with the Lakers winning 4-3. The Class AA state tourney starts Oct. 25 with quarterfinal action. The semifinals and title

We struggled a bit to fi nd a good rhythm at one and two doubles and did not play our best. But luckily we still were able to come away with the win.” Eighth-grader Sydney Soeff ker and sophomore Nikki Henderson had to win a first-set tiebreaker to pull out a 7-6 win

High spike mark The Burnsville volleyball team swept its way to its second South Suburban Conference win Oct. 11. The road victory over Rosemou nt (2 5 -21, 2 8 -2 6, 25-22) pretty much assured the Blaze no lower than the seventh seed when the Section 3AAA tournament starts Oct. 26. Burnsville (10-11 overall, 2-6 in the conference) went into the match on the heels of winning three of four at its own invite Oct. 7-8. The day before, Burnsville lost in four games in a conference home match to Apple Valley (25-22, 25-18, 21-25, 25-20). The section field is absolutely loaded with four ranked teams – No. 2 Lakeville South (23-1), No. 3 Bloomington Jefferson (17-5), No. 4 Eagan (17-3) and No. 5 Lakeville North (20-4). Eastview (10-10) and Apple Valley (13-11) are also in field. All six teams have beaten the Blaze, so Burnsville likely won’t be seeded any higher than seventh in the 12-team field. Others teams are: Bloomington Kennedy (12-13), Rosemount (9-12), Simley (10-15), Holy Angels (8-12) and Park of Cottage Grove (2-17). Meanwhile, at the Blaze’s own invite, it had a chance to earn its biggest win of the season, but came up a just few plays short.

Lakers show their mettle in 21-14 win

Blaze earns big win, but loses Motl

The Prior Lake football team showed its mettle Oct. 7. The Lakers survived a late rally from Eagan in their South Suburban Conference game Oct. 7, holding on for a 21-14 Homecoming victory. The game was played in a snarling 25-mph wind. Yet the Lakers’ third touchdown of the game went 8 0 yards directly into it for a 21-7 lead. An unsportsmanlike conduct penalty aided the drive, which was capped off by junior Jack Johnson’s 2-yard run. Junior Trevor Maxwell had runs of 22 and 15 yards on the march, which came right after Eagan’s fi rst touchdown. “It’s amazing how much that wind can affect your decision making,” said Lakers coach Matt Gegenheimer. “That was important drive. Trevor, who is starting to emerge as a playmaker, had some good, hard runs. That drive was a big turning point.” However, Eagan didn’t go away. The Wildcats closed the gap to 21-14 with a touchdown with 1:40 to play. Eagan got the onside kick,

for about 70 plays. That’s a lot too. I was very proud of the defense and how it played for being out there that much.” Eagan outgained the Lakers 298 to 198 yards, running 30 more offensive plays. But big plays were the difference, offensive, defensively and on special teams. Prior Lake took a 14-0 lead in the third quarter on senior Jack Kaiser’s 46-yard scoring run on fourth-and-1.

The Burnsville football team earned a dramatic home victory Oct. 7 in a mini wind storm, coming from 14 points down in the fourth quarter. But after the game, there was bad news. Senior quarterback Dan Motl suffered a lacerated kidney in the Blaze’s 36-29 win over Eastview and will miss the rest of the season. It’s a tough blow for a Blaze team that improved to a 2-4 overall with the South Suburban Conference victory. Three of the Blaze’s losses are by a combined eight points. “That’s a big loss for us, said Blaze first-year coach Tyler Krebs. “Dan is a winner; he’s a special athlete. It puts us in a scramble mode down the stretch. We are going to need a lot of guys to step and fi ll Dan’s shoes. “But that’s part of football,” added Krebs. “Injuries happen. Our kids have been very resilient this year. This is just another lesson in how important the team is.”

T he P r ior L a ke g i rl s swimming team was able to win nine of 12 events Oct. 11, despite competing without two of its top performers. J u n i o r K e n d r a L a i r, sophomore Elizabeth Cunningham and eighth-grader Lauren Harris each won two individual events in the Lakers’ 99-87 South Suburban Conference home win over Eastview. The Lakers went into the dual on the heels of a 105-76 win at Bloomington Jefferson Oct. 6. Prior Lake is 6-1 in conference duals and is competing again today (Saturday, Oct. 15) in the Section 2AA True Team Meet at Oak Grove Junior High School in Bloomington. Junior Alex Yaeger and sophomore Monic a Ba nasikowski won’t be competing in the section true team, but the team did confirm they will be back for the Lakers’ con ference dua l Tuesday, Oct. 18 at Lakeville South at 6 p.m. Yaeger has missed the last three league duals and Banasikowski the last two for undisclosed reasons. “I’m extremely pleased with the (dual with Eastview),” said Lakers coach Katie Haycraft. “I knew it was going to be close, especially without Monica and Alex in the lineup. So I told the girls that they need to work together as a team and we will do great. “This was one of those m e e t s t h at e ve r y p oi nt counts,” added Haycraft. “We had a lot of girls drop time and go season-best times in their events.” C u n ni ng ha m won t he 200 freestyle with a time of 1 minute, 58.42 seconds and the 100 freestyle (55.58). Harris captured the 200 individual medley (2:18.99) and the 100 butterfly (1:02.28), while Lair was tops in the 50 freestyle (25.74) and the 500 freestyle (5:26.91). The Lakers also swept all three relays. Lair, Harris, junior Elizabeth Hartell and sophomore Taylor Dessler won the 200 medley relay (1:55.08).

Kicking it in the postseason Blaze boys fall in the quarterfinals

Blaze girls get No. 1 section seed

For the second straight year, the Burnsville boys soccer team couldn’t get out the Section 3AA quarterfi nals. Sixth-seeded Park of Cottage Grove scored in the second minute of the game and never looked back en route to a 4-1 win over the third-seeded Blaze Oct. 11. It was the second straight season Burnsville lost in the first round on the playoffs on its home field. Eastview knocked out the Blaze last year 2-1. The Blaze finished its second year under coach Bill Toranza with a 7-6-4 mark. Burnsville was 5-3-1 in the South Suburban Conference, tying for third with Eagan. Park led 2- 0 at the break and scored midway through the second half for a 3-0 lead. Burnsville finally got on the board with 21 minutes left to play on a goal from junior Jesse Beane. Burnsville nearly pulled to within one goal shortly after Beane scored when junior Jan Splittengerber hit the post on a rebound attempt. Burnsville was forced to take some chances down two goals, leaving their defense vulnerable. Park took advantage, sealing the win on a breakaway goal from RJ Alwonle, his third of the game. Down 2- 0 Burnsville had some good chances to score in the fi rst half. It had two corner kicks with senior Eduardo Perez nearly scoring on a header on one of them. Senior Mauricio Mendoza also had a free kick from about 25 yards out and his bullet shot looked like it was going into the corner of the net, but the Park goalie just def lected it wide with a diving save. Park’s two goals in the fi rst half certainly were not picturesque. Burnsville senior goalie Dan Nimtz looked like he didn’t see a hard shot on the ground

The road to the Class AA state tournament goes through Burnsville. T he No. 4 -ra n ked Bl a ze earned the top seed in the Section 2AA girls soccer tournament and will play at home as long it stays alive. Burnsville is seeking its fi rst state berth since 1996. It took a 12-4 record into the quarterfi nals Thursday (results not available at press time) against eighth-seeded Bloomington Kennedy (3-10-1). The semifinals are today (Saturday, Oct. 15) with the title game set for Oct. 18 at 7 p.m. Complete brackets are available on www.mshsl.org. Ninth-ranked Eden Prairie (8-3-4), the defending Class AA state champion, earned the No. 2 seed and faced Chanhassen (8-6-1) in the fi rst round. Other quarterfinal games Thursday were: third-seeded Edina (8 -3 - 5) versus sixthseeded Shakopee (9-4-3) and fourth-seeded Prior Lake (7-7-1) versus fi fth-seeded Bloomington Jefferson (5-9-2). Burnsville was 7-2 in its last nine regular season games and all of those wins are by shutout, including 4 - 0 at home over Apple Valley Oct. 6 in a South Suburban Conference game. Burnsville fi nished third in the conference with a 6-3 mark behind top-ranked Lakeville North (7-0-2) and No. 4 Eagan (6-2-1). As good as Burnsville’s defense has been in the second half of the season, the Blaze can be downright explosive offensively. It had scored 50 goals going into the playoffs, including 24 from sophomore standout Alyssa Blahnik. Senior Bailly Drayton has seven goals and six assists in the regular season, while junior Tiana Khamvongsa has six goals and five assists. Sophomore Abby Soderholm led team in assists with seven,

Burnsville senior Mauricio Mendoza (9) fights for the control of the ball in the Blaze’s 4-1 playoff loss to Park of Cottage Grove Oct. 11. from his right, which found its way through traffic and into the back of the next. Park’s next goal deflected off a Blaze player in front of the goal and past Nimtz. Burnsville struggled to fi nd wins in the second half of the season. After a 5-1-3 start, the Blaze went 2-5-1 in its last eight games. Four of the losses and the tie were to ranked teams – No. 4 Bloomington Jefferson (4-1), No. 5 Eagan (1-0), No. 6 Edina (3-0), No. 9 Eden Prairie (1-0) and No. 1 and unbeaten Eastview (1-1). The strength of the Blaze’s schedule helped it earn the No. 3 seed, despite going into the playoff game with the same amount of wins as Park. “We’ve had a good season based on our difficult schedule,” said Bill Toranza. “We’re the only team to put a ding on Eastview’s record (16-0-1). We’ve played everyone tough.” Burnsville’s last section title

is in 2005. Since then, the Blaze is 2-6 in the playoffs. Burnsville went into the postseason winning its last two conference games, including a 2-1 home win over Apple Valley, Oct. 6. The win over two-time Class AA defending state champs likely clinched the No. 3 seed for the Blaze. “There was a lot riding on that game,” said Toranza. “It was a huge win for our guys. It’s been a long time since Burnsville has beaten Apple Valley.” Perez and Beane each scored goals, while junior Luis Garcia and Mendoza had assists. The Blaze scored two quick goals and led 2-0 early in the second half. Apple Valley cut the margin to 2-1 with in the 68th minute. Nimtz preserved the onegoal lead in the remaining minutes. He started all 17 games, posting two shutouts.

adding four goals. Junior Maggie Soderholm has two goals and three assists. In goal, junior Meghann Rudolph and ninth-grader Darby Lofthus have split the duties, including each playing at half in many of the games. It’s uncertain if they’ll split game time in the playoffs. Rudolph played all 80 minutes in the win over Apple Valley. In all, the Blaze has eight shutout victories. Burnsville allowed 11 goals in its fi rst six games, but gave up just five in its last 10 before the playoffs. Sophomore Hannah Kierstead, juniors Natalie Muench and Sara Poythress and senior Hannah Freden have anchored the defense. In the win over Apple Valley, Drayton scored twice while Blahnik and Khamvongsa each had one goal. Blahnik, Abby Soderholm, Maggie Soderholm and junior Brianna Westbrooks each had one assist. This year’s Class AA state tournament starts Oct. 26. The top-four teams are seeded.

Krebs said he has three options at quarterback going forward – junior Ben Baker, who saw a little time with Motl in the fi rst couple games, along with junior Matt Gregoire and sophomore Will Reger. Reger is also the team’s leading receiver. Burnsville played at Eagan in a league game Friday (results not available at press time) and returns home Wednesday, Oct. 19 to close out the regular season versus No. 8-ranked Lakeville South at 7 p.m. The Section 3AAAAA quarterfinals start Oct. 25. Krebs said Motl hurt himself in the third quarter punting. He stayed in there and led the Blaze’s dramatic comeback. Motl found a streaking Jalen Dyson deep down the field for a 43-yard touchdown with 1:15 to play to give the Blaze a seven-point lead. The Blaze scored 21 unanswered points with the wind, after allowing 22 third-quarter points to Eastview to fall behind 29-15 going into the fi nal 12 minutes. All 66 of the game’s points were scored with the wind. The south end of the field was like a vacant lot. “It’s one of the strangest games I’ve ever been a pa r t of,” said Krebs. “I’ve never been in a game where the wind was that much of a factor. Burnsville led 15-0 after the fi rst quarter and 15 -7 going into the

break, before a disastrous start to the second half. Eastview took a 29-15 lead scoring on the final play of the third quarter, a 1-yard run. Burnsville’s fi rst possession in the fourth quarter was five plays, highlighted by sophomore Ben Sherman’s 46-yard dash down the sidelines that set up Motl’s 5-yard scoring run. The Blaze got the ball right back on a sack on fourth down. The ball also came loose and senior Hunter Anderson recovered it inside the Eastview 35-yard line. Motl hit senior Marshon McIntosh on 22-yard pass to set up Motl’s 1-yard scoring run to tie the game. Eastview had the ball at midfield on its ensuing possession and faced a fourth-and-9 on its own 49-yard line. That’s when junior linebacker Josh Bernardy made a big play. He blitzed from the left side and came in untouched for a nine-yard sack, giving the Blaze the ball with 1:37 remaining. One play later, Motl hit Dyson for the game-winning score. Motl fi nished 4 of 6 for 107 yards. He was also 4 for 4 on extra points. Motl connected with senior Brian Vanderwoude on a 19-yard scoring pass in the fi rst quarter and Dyson followed with a 20-yard run to give the Blaze the early lead. Reger had a two-point conversion run on the Blaze’s fi rst score. Dyson fi nished with 49 yards on six carries, while Sherman had 69 yards on seven carries.

The third quarter was one Burnsville would rather forget. It fumbled on its fi rst play. Eastview converted the miscue into a touchdown, adding the two-point conversion. On its next possession, Burnsville decided that punting into the wind was futile, so it went for it on fourth-and-7 inside its own 30-yard line. The Blaze was stopped and Eastview converted the short field into a score and a 22-15 lead. Burnsville’s next possession quickly stalled, so it attempted to a punt this time. It was blocked. Eastview followed with another score to take the 14-point lead into the fi nal quarter. The victory also was against Krebs’ former team. He was a longtime assistant coach with Eastview, including the defensive coordinator, since the school’s inception in 1997, before taking the Blaze job this fall. “I was proud of the way the team responded in the fourth quarter,” said Krebs. “Heads were down after the third quarter. But we stepped up and made some big plays to win.” Burnsvi l le’s win cou ld have big seed implications in Section 3AAAAA. Rosemount (4-2) and Prior Lake (4-2) look to be the top two seeds, while Bloomington Kennedy (2-4) and Eastview (2-4) and battling the Blaze for a home playoff game in the quarterfi nals. Burnsville’s other win is against Kennedy (20-7). Bloomington Jefferson (1-5) and Apple Valley (0-6) are also in the field.

Prior Lake was about to punt the ball away on fourth-and-6, but an Eagan offside penalty changed things. The Lakers went for it and Kaiser made the Wildcats pay with his eighth touchdown of the year. He fi nished with 91 yards on 12 carries. “We were going to punt to play for field position,” said Gegenheimer. “But when it became fourth-and-1, that was too good of an opportunity to pass up. Jack made a big run.” In the second quarter, the Lakers’ defense forced a punt into the wind. The line-drive attempt was blocked by senior Mason Lytle and s en ior T e d C houdek scooped the ball up and took it 25 yards for a score, giving the Lakers a 7-0 lead at the break. Matt Prior Lake’s offense Gegenheimer had trouble moving the ball in the first hal f. Lakers coach Meanwhile, Eagan had the ball deep in Lakers’ territory twice in the fi rst quarter with the wind and came away with no points. Eagan tried to score on a fourth-down pass to the end zone on its fi rst possession, but it was perfectly defended and broken up by senior Will Mcphearson. The Lakers had three sacks in the game, one apiece from sophomores Blake Weber and Zane Larson and senior Karmichael Dubar. Larson led with 11 tackles, while junior Elijah Patrick had eight and senior Jake Deavers and Dunbar both fi nished with six. Weber had four tackles. Senior Topher Rose completed 5 of 8 passes for 49 yards with three going to senior Matt Arends for 35 yards. Maxwell fi nished with nine carries for 69 yards. Kaiser caught two balls for 14 yards. Prior Lake was on the road Friday (results not available at press time at No. 8-ranked Lakeville South in a conference game. The Cougars are coming off 30-6 loss to No. 4 Lakeville North. The Lakers close out the regular season Wednesday, Oct. 19 versus Lakeville North at 7 p.m. Prior Lake’s win over Eagan pretty much locked up a home playoff game and likely the No. 2 seed in Section 3AAAAA. Rosemount is also 4-2, but has a 13-6 win over the Lakers. Burnsville (2-4), Bloomington Kennedy (2-4) and Eastview (2-4) are also in the field, along with Bloomington Jefferson (1-5) and Apple Valley (0-6). The Lakers have wins over Burnsville (13-10), Kennedy (30-13) and Jefferson (43-7). The section playoffs start Oct. 25.

Boys soccer: Lakers earn the No. 4 seed The Prior Lake boys soccer team entered the Section 2AA playoffs with a lot of confidence. The Lakers won six of their last eight regular season games, which earned them the No. 4 seed and a home game in the quarterfinals Thursday (results not available at press time). Prior Lake faced fi fth-seeded Bloomington Kennedy (9-7). The Lakers and Eagles met Oct. 4 with Prior Lake coming away with a 4-1 win. Fourth-ranked Bloomington Jefferson (10-2-4) earned the No. 1 seed and faced eighth-seeded Chanhassen (6-8-1) in the opening round, while second-seeded and No. 6 Edina (12-3-1) faced seventhseeded Minnetonka (4-9-3) and third-seeded and No. 9 Eden Prairie (9-3-3) met sixthseeded Shakopee (7-7-2). Semifi nals are today (Saturday, Oct. 15) with the title game Tuesday, Oct. 18 at the higher seed at 7 p.m. Prior Lake enters the postseason with 11 goals in its last four games. However, it was blanked in its fi nal regular season game Oct. 6 at No. 1-ranked Eastview, losing 1-0 to the unbeaten Lightning. If the Lakers can get some offense, the team has the ability to make a long playoff run. Prior Lake’s defense has been solid all season long, led by seniors Kevin Krueger, Joe Fonseca and Konner Klausen and juniors Sam Verity, Erik Fenske and Cameron Pratt. Senior Andy Rieckoff has started all 16 games in goal, recording five shutouts. Against Eastview, the game was scoreless until the 68th minute. That’s when the Lightning (16-0-1) broke the deadlock en route to the South Suburban Conference win. Prior Lake had its chances against Eastview. Right after the Lightning scored, the Lakers nearly tied the game. Sophomore Jhony Blanco drove the ball down the right side and sent a perfect pass into the middle of the field. Seniors Zack Fennessy and Ben Clements were uncovered and Clements got low, hard shot on goal, but it was right at the Eastview keeper. Prior Lake fi nished fi fth in the conference (5-4).

Girls soccer: Lakers surge to No. 4 seed The Prior Lake girls soccer team’s strong 2-0-1 finish may have been the difference in the Lakers being on the road in the first round of the Section 2AA playoffs or at home. The Lakers (7-7-2 overall) earned the No. 4 seed in the section and opened quarterfi nal action Thursday (results not available at press time) at home versus fifth-seeded Bloomington Jefferson (5-9-2). Prior Lake won at Jefferson 2-1 during the South Suburban Conference season, which was the Lakers’ fi rst league win. The team ended up 2-5-2 in conference play. The Prior Lake-Jefferson winner will likely face No. 5-ranked Burnsville, the top seed, in the semifinals, which is set for today (Saturday, Oct. 15. That’s if the Blaze (12-4) got past eighth-seeded Bloomington Kennedy (3-10-1) in its quarterfinal game. No. 9 Eden Prairie (8-3-4), earned the No. 2 seed and faced seventh-seeded Chanhassen (8-6-1) in the quarterfinals, while third-seeded Edina (8-3-5) took on sixthseeded Shakopee (9-4-3).

DNR offers pheasant hunting tips Pheasants may seem elusive and mysterious to some hunters, but they are creatures of habit and follow a regular routine. Understanding how their daily patterns work, will dramatically increase your odds of flushing roosters this fall, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR). Just after sunrise, pheasants leave their roosting cover. This is the short to medium grass where they have spent the night. As they move from roosting cover, you will see pheasants on roadsides, picking gravel or grit, before they move into crop fields to start feeding. When season opens at 9 a.m., the birds have just about fi nished breakfast and might be seen working their way through the grassy fringes of fields looking for a safe place to spend the day. By mid-to late-morning, pheasants have settled into thick, dense cover such as standing corn, brush patches, native grass or wetlands. This is known as loafi ng cover. Strong winds, precipitation, cold weather or heavy hunting pressure will drive the birds into thicker loafi ng cover. Pheasants are hungry again by late afternoon and will move from loafi ng areas back into crop fields. They will feed until just before sunset, when they head back to roosting cover for the night.

It’s tough to gauge exactly where the Prior Lake volleyball team will be seeded in Section 2AAA. The 12-team field is not overly deep. Fifth-ranked Shakopee (18-2) is likely the No. 1 seed, while No. 10 Chanhassen (18-3) and Hutchinson (20-3) are likely the next two seeds. Defending champion Waconia (18-9) and Delano (20-6) appear to be the next two seeds, respectively. Waconia has beaten Delano twice. The top -four teams earn byes in the fi rst round, which starts Oct. 26. The quarterfinals start Oct. 28. How do the Lakers fit in? Will Prior Lake (7-14) get a home game in the fi rst round? It depends on much the rest of the section views the Lakers’ strength of schedule, playing in the highly competitive South Suburban Conference with four ranked teams – No. 2 Lakeville South, No. 3 Bloomington Jefferson, No. 4 Eagan and No. 5 Lakeville North.

Since then, the Lakers are 5-14. Other teams in the field are: Mankato West (7-13-1), New Prague (7-13) and Mankato East (2-21). Prior Lake dropped to 1-7 in the conference following a home loss to Eagan Oct. 11 (25-8, 25-15, 23-25, 25-14). The Lakers also lost a league match at Eastview Oct. 6 (25-13, 25-22, 25-23).

Simley moved some of their singles players down into doubles to try to get some doubles points, so Caitlyn and Alex had a good win against two good players.” Meanwhile, the Petersen sisters won easily at No. 1 doubles (6-3, 6-1), while Soeff ker and Nikki Henderson rolled at the No. 3 spot (6-1, 6-3).

Frightmares Buck Hill transforms into haunt for ghouls, goblins and vampires

Frightmares at Buck Hill

BY ERIC KRAUSHAR scores@swpub.com

Location: 15400 Buck Hill Road, Burnsville

E

ach October, a number of Halloween attractions open their gates and corn fields, but none have the backdrop quite like Frightmares does in Burnsville. The third-year attraction is set on the base of Buck Hill. With a near-full moon passing through rolling clouds coming over the hill on opening weekend, it was a great start to 13 October dates of screams and frights. Jessica Stone, Marketing Director for Frightmares, said the idea for the Halloween spook came from her parents. “It goes way back. My parents (Chuck and Nancy) started Buck Hill in 1954 and my dad would always talk about doing something like this,” she said. Frightmares opened in 2009 and the lineup of freakishly frightening spooks continues to evolve. Old favorites such as the Victorian Orchard Manor Dead and Breakfast and the BellharmLovejoy Asylum return to the

park. Prepare to be scared as you transcend into the secrets of the “History of the Hill” with a walk through the Haunted Hollow burial grounds that begins with an 800-foot ride up the hill on the “magic carpet.” More than 100 ghouls, goblins and vampires have taken over the grounds and are ready to welcome you into their homes – where the dead are their playmates and visitors are their prey. “It’s like a Broadway act,” added Stone, who said the turnover in actors is pretty minimal because they want to keep coming back for more.

HISTORY OF THE HILL The story begins in a patch of land west of Crystal Lake, in what is now known as Burnsville. Whispers began to spread among settlers that something unnatural, something unwholesome about a nearby hillside. For many years this land was avoided. This changed in 1891, when a stubborn but wealthy Scot, Hector Cromarty, insisted on building a home for himself and his ill-fated bride, Mary Cromarty. There, the couple resided in a grand Victorian

named Orchard Manor. By 1896 Hector Cromarty’s wealth was gone. He and his wife opened the manor as a bed and breakfast to travelers to help bring in funds. Not even Mary’s Scottish cooking could lure local patronage to the manor. After Mary’s death in 1901 of an undiagnosable wasting disease, Cromarty slipped into madness. The ultimate fate of Hector Cromarty became one of the mysteries of the hill.

NEW LOOK FOR 2011 While tours of the Orchard Manor and Haunted Hollow remain,

Frightmares at Buck Hill has four main attractions, including the Orchard Manor Dead and Breakfast and the Haunted Hollow. The third-year Halloween themed-park has 11 remaining dates available.

Blue-ribbon baker will headline Scott County Senior Expo BY KRISTIN HOLTZ kholtz@swpub.com

Marjorie Johnson is a bundle of energy, epitomizing the excitement of the Minnesota State Fair, a place where she’s won more than 1,000 blue ribbons over the years for her baked goods. The 4-foot-8 dynamo baker/author extraordinaire will be the main speaker at the Scott County Senior Expo Friday, Oct. 21 at Shakopee High School. The annual expo includes vendors, live entertainment, presentations, prizes, breakfast and lunch for active older adults. “It’s just a fun, informative day for them,” said Denise Loesch, program manager for the senior nutrition program with the CAP Agency. Johnson, author of “Blue Ribbon Baking,” will talk about her life, walking red carpets and meeting famous celebrities like Jay Leno and Rosie O’Donnell.

Author Marjorie Johnson Also speaking at the event will be Bob Showers, an avid Twins fan and author of “The Twins at the Met.” Showers published the book in August 2009, shortly before the Twins opened their new stadium, Target Field. Showers, who also wrote

“Minnesota North Stars: History and Memories with Lou Nanne,” will share stories of his interviews with Twins greats like Harmon Killebrew, Rod Carew and Kent Hrbek, Loesch said. Gerontologist Deborah Dolan will speak about “Family Conversations: Aging Parents and Adult Children.” Dolan is an advocate for aging who urges families to develop proactive plans to support older adults. The senior expo has been around at least 10 years, held annually during the Friday of Education Minnesota week, Loesch said. Last year, 125 seniors attended. Organizers are expecting a bigger crowd next week. “Every year, we just do it a little better and that makes us very excited,” said Loesch, an original committee member. “We’re putting on a pretty good show.” Attendees are asked to preregister at the Shako-

publicnotices premises and the costs and disbursements, including attorney fees allowed by law, subject to redemption within six (6) months from the date of said sale by the mortgagor(s), their personal representatives or assigns. If the Mortgage is not reinstated under Minn. Stat. §580.30 or the property is not redeemed under Minn. Stat. §580.23, the Mortgagor must vacate the property on or before 11:59 p.m. on May 22, 2012, or the next business day if May 22, 2012 falls on a Saturday, Sunday or legal holiday.
