Sports dome meeting Crowning achievement Savage woman selected as Miss Minnesota USA 2012 set for this Tuesday BY AMY LYON editor@savagepacer.com

BY AMY LYON editor@savagepacer.com

Savage residents and property owners living within 500 feet of the proposed sports dome just north of Community Park received letters last week and were invited to a neighborhood meeting at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 6 in the Savage City Council Chambers. During the meeting, city staff will present a brief history of the project, as well as a conceptual site plan of the proposed park expansion area and the proposed indoor sports facility. The project calls for the construction of a 110,000-square-foot inflatable structure and a 5,000-square-foot permanent building that would house restrooms. The estimated project cost is just over $5 million. The neighborhood meeting is the fi rst step in moving the process forward. Next, if city staff members

itaya Panemalaythong was skeptical when a friend suggested she look into the Miss Minnesota USA competition last year. She’d done some modeling before, but thought, “No, that’s not my thing. I’m not a pageant person.” But then she did more research and read about the scholarships that are available to winners. “I was going back to school and that prompted me because education is really important to me,” she said. Less than a year later she was crowned Miss Minnesota USA 2012 during the pageant finals Sunday night at the Burnsville Performing Arts Center. At 26, Panemalaythong was the oldest contestant in the competition, which is open to unmarried women ages 18 to 26. “This was my only chance,” she said. There were 22 other contestants from around the state who competed in a private interview process with judges, then moved on stage for the evening gown and swimwear competitions. Panemalaythong has now changed her tune about pageants. “I liked getting ready back stage, dressing up and getting to know the girls,” she said. “A lot of people get a misconception about pageants.” Several of the other contestants were “first-timers,” Panemalaythong said, and there were some who have competed for many years. “This is my first pageant ever. Some girls do it because they want to earn the title and others just want to have fun,” she said. According to the state pageant offices at Future Productions, Panemalaythong will receive

choose to move forward, they would determine potential users of the dome to get an accurate picture of usage and annual operating revenue. “We need to make a decision if we’re moving forward by December or January to meet an October opening,” City Administrator Barry Stock said during a November Council meeting. The City Council has not approved a plan for the project; however, Stock said that if the project is approved, it “could commence in the spring of 2012 with a fall 2012 completion date.”

Scott County Commissioner Barbara Marschall of Prior Lake has accepted the position of vice president of programs for the CAP Agency, a nonprofit partnership of Scott, Dakota and Carver counties. Marschall, who recently served on the agency’s board of directors, will oversee programming such as Head Start, heating assistance and weatherization from the agency’s Rosemount office. The agency, which relies on government and private funding, offers 26 programs and services for the three counties. The program manager position was established as part of a restructuring that CAP Agency President Carolina Bradpiece undertook after being hired in 2010.

“We are so excited to have her,” Bradpiece said of Marschall. “The CAP Agency is evolving into a strong nonprofit with all of its core competencies develop e d . We’r e involved in a very outcomes-based sociBarbara ety. She will put into Marschall use her good management skills and create processes and systems that effectively implement the programs.” Marschall competed with three other finalists for the job and was selected by a panel of nonprofit professionals who came from outside the local agency. The panel didn’t include any CAP agency board members or staff. A county commissioner since 1997, Marschall said she served as the county’s representative to the CAP Agency board at the beginning of her tenure and rejoined earlier this year when a

Scott, Carver counties consider merger of 911 dispatch centers Savings could be up to a half-million dollars per year BY SHANNON FIECKE sfiecke@swpub.com

Emergency dispatchers in Scott County could be taking 911 calls from residents in Carver County – or vice versa – in the future under a merger being considered by the neighboring counties. Supervisors from the two sheriff’s offices met with commissioners from

each county Tuesday in Chaska to share steps they are taking to learn what it would take – and how much they could save – by melding the two counties’ 911 dispatch services. It’s too early for definitive costsaving fi gures, but Carver County Commissioner Randy Maluchnik said following the meeting that he’s hopeful the counties could save up to a half-million dollars per year if they consolidate. “Three to six people on duty, 24/7, that could be a lot of potential savings,” said Scott County Board Chair Tom Wolf. Last year, the counties of Scott,

Carver, Sibley and McLeod completed a $125,000 state-funded consolidation study of their dispatching services. Sibley and McLeod were content with their current situation, Scott County Sheriff Kevin Studnicka said, but Carver and Scott thought consolidation was worth a closer look. “We’re only three to four miles – as the crow fl ies – away from each other,” Studnicka said. The counties must determine which dispatch center would be best to close and how technology would be merged. Two architectural fi rms

Savage family makes its mark as go-to guys for sound, lighting

HOW IT BEGAN The Andrews family first got involved in doing sound for schools in the district after Jeff and family (including wife Donna, a kindergarten teacher at Hidden Valley Elementary) attended a play at Eagle Ridge Junior High when Jon was a student there. Much to the dismay of Jeff, the technical

A PASSION FOR SOUND While Jon enjoys playing baseball, riding his bike and hanging out with friends, just like any other normal kid, his true passion is sound. “At the end when the show’s running and you have all your channels on and it sounds the way you imagined hearing it, it’s very gratifying to hear your masterpiece come to life for everybody to hear,” said Jon. But while it’s his passion, it’s not always easy. Jon has to be at the Mraz Center every night after school during dress rehearsals for the school plays. Even when there aren’t rehearsals, there are still other events going on, so Jon spends several nights a week at the Mraz Center throughout the school year. One of the hardest parts

Burnsville High School senior and Savage resident Jon Andrews checks the sound levels during a break in rehearsals for the now-showing BHS play “Blithe Spirit.” of doing the sound for school plays, Jon said, is syncing up with the actors on stage. “ Some of the shows we have, there are 60-plus channels run in, most of them wireless, and it’s pretty hard to coordinate,” he said. “You have to coordinate with your people, you have to coordinate with the actors so they know what they’re doing. People think I just sit up there and press buttons, but really that’s the easy part. The hard part is the 80 percent prep work [that goes into it].” And like the actors on stage, when the curtains come up, Jon experiences his own kind of performance anxiety. “Every opening night when the lights go down I get that little feeling in my stomach like ‘Oh, geez,’” he said. “But usually after the first number I’m like ‘I’ll be OK.’ Because after you’ve done it so many times it’s kind of like clockwork by that point.” While sound is Jon’s passion, it’s more than just a hobby for him; he hopes to make it his career. Jon said he’s thinking about attending the Minnesota School of Business next fall to pursue a degree in digital video and media production.

BRINGING THEM CLOSER The family has worked together at events for years now and they say it’s an experience that’s brought the whole family much closer together. “Any time you can spend time with your children doing something everybody enjoys, there’s a connection there that you can’t put a price on,” said Jeff. Jon agreed. “Over the years we’ve developed a really good connection. Sometimes we’ll be working on a project and we’ll get really involved in a conversation about how we’re going to do something, and people will stop what they’re doing and look at us and say

‘What are these guys talking about?’ We’ve got our own kind of language going on,” he said. “It’s definitely brought us closer together.” The family also plays music with Jeff ’s dad at St. James on Wednesdays for the church’s confirmation group. “My dad plays bass, I play the guitar, Jon plays the drums and Ben runs the sound,” said Jeff, “so to have three generations playing and performing on stage together, it’s unbelievable.” Even Jeff and Donna’s youngest child, Kate Marie, a second-grader at M.W. Savage Elementary, is joining in on the fun. But unlike her siblings who work behindthe-scenes, Kate Marie prefers the spotlight. While Jeff was doing the sound for “Cinderella” at Eagle Ridge two years ago, the director asked Kate if she wanted to be in the play. Kate Marie, who the Andrews adopted from Ethiopia almost six years ago, was more than happy to oblige. She was cast as one of Cinderella’s mice on the Saturday before they opened, and by opening night on Thursday she had learned all of her lines and choreography and was clearly a star in the making. “When she crawled up into Cinderella’s lap while she was singing ‘In My Own Little Corner’ and gazed adoringly into Cinderella’s eyes, it just made you melt. It was amazing,” said Jeff. Now Kate Marie is in every production at Eagle Ridge. For Jeff, the legacy his family is leaving behind is what makes him the proudest. Jeff said Ben is already so knowledgeable that he’s teaching his peers at Eagle Ridge about sound and lighting. “That’s what I really love to see. When you love something, you pass it on, and to see my kids doing that, it’s priceless.”

Whether you’re bopping to a concert at Dan Patch Days, enjoying a worship service at St. James Lutheran Church or taking in a play at Eagle Ridge Junior High, chances are you have an Andrews to thank for the impeccable sound quality. For the Andrews of Savage, sound and lighting is the family business. Patriarch Jeff Andrews said he’s been interested in sound and lighting since he was 2-years-old. As the son of a musician father, Jeff began helping his dad set up sound equipment at an early age, and it was something that stuck with him through adulthood. But as the son of a musician, why did he choose the technical side rather than the performing side of the music business? “I was always just fascinated by how things worked,” said Jeff. “And having seen as much live entertainment as I have growing up, I just liked being able to help with the presentation of it all.” About 25 years ago, when Jeff was 17 or 18, he started doing the sound and lightning for worship services at St. James Lutheran Church in Burnsville, something he continues to do to this day. And it was at the church that his oldest son, Jon, caught the sound bug. “I’d be there with my father, because he sang in a choir there, and there’d be keyboards and mics and stuff. So they’d be like ‘Here, plug this in over there in channel four,’” Jon said. “I loved it, and most people caught on that I knew what I was doing, and now I get asked to do it all the time.” Jon is the sound manager for the Mraz Center for Performing Arts at Burnsville High School (BHS). Jon, a BHS senior, does the sound for any event that takes place at the Mraz Center, whether it’s a play, band recital, variety show or any other performance. “They’ve been invaluable,” Mraz Center Manager Randy Day said about Jon and his father Jeff. “They’re great people, really easy to work with and very knowledgeable. It’s one of those things where you can feel very comfortable saying ‘Here’s the problem, I’m going to hand it off to you,’ and you know it’s going to get taken care of. ”

aspect of the show was a disaster. “Here these kids worked their butts off, memorized their lines, did everything they can, and then the tech fails on them,” Jeff said. “And I just said to myself, ‘This can’t happen.’” Bryan Fisher, a music teacher and musical director at both Eagle Ridge and BHS, said the Andrews have put in countless hours volunteering at the schools since then. “They’re a tremendously giving family,” he said. “We really couldn’t do it without them.” Jeff, who works at a company called Starthrower, which produces corporate training videos, continues to help out with sound and lighting at the schools when he gets the chance. But according to Jeff, Jon doesn’t seem to need much help at the high school. And when Jon leaves for college next year, there will be another Andrews at the high school to take his place. Ben, a ninth-grader at Eagle Ridge, has been taking care of the sound for that school’s performances and is expected to take on Jon’s position as Mraz Center sound manager when he makes the move to the high school next year. But then who will do the sound for Eagle Ridge? Not to worry: Another Andrews is waiting in the wings. Jeff ’s youngest son Sam, who will be attending the school next year, is expected to carry on the family tradition. In addition to school and church performances, Jeff and Jon also do the sound, staging and lighting for performances at Dan Patch Days. Jeff has been involved with the event since its reincarnation in the late 1990s, and in the last few years he’s been doing it with Jon as they work for a company called Festival Productions. Jon works fulltime for the company during the summer.

Could life be simplified to a Team Edward vs. Team Jacob level? Over the last few months there has been a great divide in America that is fi nally being addressed by young people everywhere. Of course I’m talking about Team Edward vs. Team Jacob. You can’t blame tweens for their division, but you’d think they’d be angrier at the producers for splitting up the fourth book of the “Twilight” trilogy into two separate billion dollar-making movies or for having to shell out that kind of cash for a vampire vs. werewolf movie that didn’t use trained actors. What used to be a simple theme, the “Werewolf-Vampire-Teenage Klutz Love Triangle,” has turned into its own genre. Barnes and Noble has even had to shore up their stores by adding a “Teen Paranormal Romance” section, not to be confused with the “Teen Fantasy” or “Teen Fiction” sections. If I remember my teenage years correctly, “romance,” “fantasy” and “fiction” were pretty much the same thing. To be fair, I have been known to browse the Western section, which many years ago was split from the fiction area for a similar reason: to separate other shoppers from guys who think that variety comes when in one book the bad guy is hiding behind a rock and in another he’s crouching behind a cactus. It makes me wonder what the world would be like if the ideas and interests of the younger generations were reality. While it’s easy for pastors and grandparents to preach about how the world would be a more wonderful place if it were guided by the innocence of children, let’s put it to the test. The entire job market would consist of four professions: teachers to teach children, veterinarians to fi x puppies, astronauts because the moon is cool, and fi remen, presumably to put out the fi res caused by everyone wielding lightning bolts and waving around swords of fi re. Of course, the veterinarians would soon be out of jobs because most kids think that their cats, dogs, hamsters and goldfi sh feed and clean themselves. One might wonder ab out t he sub s e quent stench, but that would only add to the smell of all the garbage around the house as the kids would wonder why it wasn’t taking itself out. Nobody would have to worry

about food because everyone knows that mom and dad just pluck it from grocery store shelves where it magically appears every week, and is paid for by the same fl at bits of plastic that make mom and dad argue about whether ice fishing gear or new shoes are the better investment. The more mature children’s attention would turn from teaching and putting out fires to … paranormal romance. The goal of every young man would be to appear either cold and milky-white with pointy canine teeth or sweaty-hot and bronzed with a Neanderthal brow and the ability to turn into a dog. (Something most of us can already do without much effort.) Every year we could look forward to the high-school drama depar tment producing its ow n version of “Twilight, the Musical,” and school lunches would consist of macaroni and cheese, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and the vegetable we know today as chocolate. In the end, maybe the tweens do have it right and we should simplify things like global unrest and Republican debates into Team Jacob vs. Team Edward disputes. Each side would learn how political battles mirror paranormal romances and be forced to choose the vampire or the werewolf in a winner-takes-all WWF-style wrestling match. Although not nearly as entertaining as the debates, the acting is about the same and it would be considerably less violent.

GUEST COMMENTARY

Throw your pebble, see how far your ripple spreads BY HEIDI KEYHO

When you toss a pebble onto the f lat surface of water, you often do not know how far your ripples will spread, just as when you reach out a helping hand to those in need, you never really know the impact you will make. What is known is that, based on a 2009 survey Heading Home ScottCarver, some of our neighbors slept on couches, in storage units, in cars, in campers and at friends’ houses last night. Clearly that is unacceptable, especially when we have the resources and services to help. The difficult part is matching those in need with available services, and that is why Scott-Carver Project Community Connect (PCC) was born. PCC provides a central location, or one-stop shop, to match those “living on little” with resources and services that can mean the difference between despair and hope. When planning a large outreach event such as this, it is hard to gauge how many people will walk through the door. A young woman came, holding one toddler by the hand and an infant on her hip. A middle-aged man came wearing a cot on his back. Some came without a solid grasp of the English language. Some came, dressed in their best, looking for a job. Guests came on foot, in cars, trucks, vans, SmartLink buses … they were greeted with a big smile, “How can I help you?” and an invitation to enjoy coffee and pastries. Volunteer guides were matched with each individual who then con-

ducted an oral interview, trying to determine exactly what services were needed most. Did they need medical attention? Legal advice? Immunizations? Domestic or sexual violence resources? Benefits? Employment? Birth certificates? Child support? Lunch? Once their needs were identified, the guide walked them to one of the 87 service providers, explained their situation and let the service provider take it from there. Scott County Child Support, Minnesota Department of Public Safety, Voter Registration, Housing Link, CAP Agency (Child Care, Energy and Food) Loaves and Fishes, Veterans Services, Southern Valley Alliance for Battered Women … the list goes on. Each organization was there to listen and give information and assistance on how to receive help. One empty space at Shakopee Town Square Mall was converted into a hair salon. Fifteen volunteer hair stylists from Great Clips-Savage, Allure Salon and Purcell’s served a steady stream of clients. At the end of the day more than 40 work hours had been donated, 152 free haircuts given and more than $3,000 worth of services. The mall corridor was converted into a cafeteria where 667 lunches, lovingly assembled at St. Mark’s Catholic Church in Shakopee, were given out to guests, guides and providers. Classrooms at the Minnesota School of Business in Shakopee became a vaccine clinic, a law office, a pediatric dental facility, a day-care

center and private medical suites. The Mdewakanton Sioux Community brought their mobile medical unit and conducted free mammograms. Here’s Scott-Carver Project Community Connect by the numbers … 400 individuals served, 87 service providers, 93 volunteers, 667 lunches, 152 free haircuts, 87 vaccinations, 60 job applications submitted, 59 legal consultations, 52 birth certificates, 29 ID license vouchers given, 52 received info on benefits, 35 professional photographs, 25 vouchers for car seats, 24 vision exams, 11 physicals and two hot showers. Here’s Scott-Carver Project Community Connect by the human impact … A middle-aged woman with a neatly combed bob, wearing a warm winter jacket, made this comment, “This is a lot of work, getting everyone together like this,” she said. “But I have come so far from last year, thanks to all of you.” She was referring to last year’s PCC, which was held at Canterbury Park. Suddenly I had a flash of recognition and thought, I remember you. You were the disheveled lady who walked through the door, tears rolling down your cheeks, carrying a bag with your worldly belongings in it. She had made an emotional impact on many volunteers then, and now here she was, looking so much healthier and happier. Go on. Throw your pebble. Reach out a helping hand.

Caring people helped out when dog was hit I would like to extend my sincere thanks to all of the kind and caring people who helped me during the traumatic event of my dog, Dixie, being hit and dragged by a car a few weeks ago. I was in such a state of shock, but many of you, including the driver of the car, stopped and helped when you didn’t have to. Some of you stayed and petted Dixie, some of you ran up and down McColl searching for my other dog, Laddie, some of you stopped and helped direct traffic around the scene, some of you walked me home to assist with getting Dixie to the vet. I appreciate all you did. Thanks also to the Savage Police Department for your grace in the matter, and to the driver of the car as well.

For all of you, THANKS so much for all you did to make a horrific event a bit better for me. I would also like to extend a HUGE thanks for Dr. Benson and his staff at Gentle Doctor Vet Clinic in Savage for looking after Dixie and taking care of her. As of today, Dixie is alive and doing well, with no broken bones, just road rash, bruising and some stitches. It’s nice to live in a place like Savage, where neighbors and good Samaritans still thrive.

There were no warming houses and skating rinks maintained by the city back in 1943. Instead, residents found other places to skate during the winter months, like this “dredge line” that led to the Minnesota River. Look closely down the center of the picture in the trees – that’s M.W. Savage’s summer home “Valley View” on the bluff in Bloomington.

Searching for the perfect gift Well, friends, December is here and it’s time for me to start looking for Christmas presents. Note that I said looking, not shopping, so I will start with under my bed. Then I’ll check out the back of my closet. After that I’ll try my sock drawer, the top shelf in the furnace room and the boxes below the work bench in the garage. Sigh. It’s not easy having such a unique skill. It’s a gift, really, this incredible ability to hide things – not only from the rest of the family, but also from myself. Especially from myself, if I were to be totally honest. I didn’t even know I possessed this talent until I had children. My first realization actually occurred an hour before the party for my son’s sixth birthday, when I realized I had absolutely no idea what “special place” I had tucked away the party favors that I had bought so efficiently six weeks prior. I began sweeping linens off shelves, catapulting shoes out of closets, and flinging open boxes and bins in the hope of finding the party bags and accessories but, alas, no luck. Thus, instead of being one of those perfect mothers who packs the party bags with everything but Swarovski crystals, I rifled through the junk drawer and dredged up some Barney Band-aids, old dog stickers and 10 pieces of Juicy Fruit gum. And thus my special gift was made evident to the world at large. Since then, it seems my ability to hide things has flourished. I rustle under the

bed skirt in July only to pull out the emblazoned winter hat I had bought the previous October. And should have gift-wrapped in December. And now the intended recipient has graduated and no longer plays for the team. Another example is the year that, after carefully buying the same number of gifts for each child, I moved the ironing board in the closet to reveal yet another gift for the oldest. Or there was that time when I found three brand new T-shirts in the bag in the downstairs closet, shoved so

trickily behind the stack of blankets, only to realize that they were now too small for anyone in the family to wear. Is a special talent like mine ever a bad thing? The folks at Goodwill donations don’t think so, but I’m beginning to wonder. Part of me is positive I’m being outrageously clever, buying perfect gifts throughout the year instead of just during the busy month of December. Plus I’m spreading out expenses. And I can take the time to find great bargains and absolute treasures. Another part of me, however, is rolling the eyes and thumping the skull and saying, “How could you forget you already bought that?!” when I order something from Amazon only to find it at the back of my closet, new and pristine, just waiting for the gift tag to that special someone. Am I really that good at hiding things? Or is it a memory thing? Like the winter I decided to make wild rice casserole and the recipe called for a jar of pimentos so I picked one up

PET OF THE WEEK Easy-going, friendly Chumley was found starving when a kind resident rescued him. This confident tuxedo cat is about 3 years old, likes calm kids over age 5 and some cats. He’s active and likes to play with anything that moves. Sometimes Chumley jumps into your lap and stays while you pet him. He door greets, follows you and tells you when you are late for dinner. 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 Chumley 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.

at the store. Then, the next time I was in Cub I walked past the pimentos and said, “That’s right! I need some of those,” so I picked up a jar and took it home and set it next to the one already in the cupboard. Then I went to the grocery store a few days later and stared at the pimento jars, trying to remember if I had actually bought a jar or only THOUGHT about buying a jar. So I bought a jar, just in case, and took it home to set next to the other two jars. For two weeks after that, my grocery list had DO NOT BUY PIMENTOS on the top line. And, to really ratchet up the level of ridiculous, I never even got around to making wild rice casserole that winter. So there sat three little jars in the back of my cupboard all year long - a silent testimony to a brain gone bad. Okay, it’s becoming more evident to me that this might be a memory thing. Bummer. I thought I was just really good at hiding things. But, if that’s the case – and since the kids tell me they know all of my hiding places, anyway – I will only buy presents early if I hide them in the same place. Every time. Every year. That should keep things simple. Unless, of course, I decide to buy a little gift for myself. In that case, I’ll just hide it the way I formally hid things and be pleasantly surprised when – or IF – I ever find it. (Karen Wheeler is a veterinarian who lives in Burnsville.

Ms. Grant’s class created the arrangements as a fundraiser to purchase a special ingredient for their lasagna garden: manure. A lasagna garden is a no-dig, no-till garden in which organic materials are layered, resulting in rich, fluffy soil over time.

WINTERTIME TIPS: Clean up all antifreeze spills to make sure pets do not have any access to this poison. Just a partial teaspoon can cause fatal kidney disease in dogs and especially in cats. Immediate veterinary care should be sought if you think your pet ingested any antifreeze. Chocolate, especially baking or dark chocolate, can also be toxic. Increased heart rate, tremors, seizures and death may occur from toxic levels of ingestion. Keep all ribbons, strings and bows away from pets, especially cats. If ingested, these can cause severe damage in the intestinal tract resulting in perforations, peritonitis and death.

Batteries can cause damage in the stomach and intestines and even heavy metal toxicity. If there is doubt about battery ingestion, an x-ray can locate the offending object for removal. Recently, some chicken jerky treats produced in China have been known to cause kidney problems in dogs. Prescription drugs for people are becoming a leader in animal poisonings. Make sure all medications are properly stored, including any a guest may bring.

SPIRITUAL REFLECTIONS

Find peace in your heart, joy in your life year-round Thanksgiving is over, Black Friday has passed and Cyber Monday has emerged, all to help ease the anxiety over holiday gift giving. Surely by now, many of us are already feeling the rush of the season. Calendars are filling up, there are goodies to be made and decorating to be done, and to-do lists getting longer by the minute. Everywhere we go we are reminded that Christmas, or more commonly called the holiday season, is a time where hearts are light and there is a spirit of peace and joy in our everyday living. There is an underlying assumption that all the preparations we make, the parties we attend and the gifts we buy will somehow give us what we are looking for … peace in our hearts and joy in our lives. We also can’t help but notice that the calendar has not yet declared winter, but we have entered a time of darkness. It is now dark when most of us get up in the morning and dark when we come home from work, leaving us with little access to the sunlight. I have always looked at this time of year with wonder and awe because it is filled with happiness, yet comes in the darkest part of the year. I think about the contrast of darkness to light and the contrast of what the Christmas season is supposed to be compared to the reality of our experience. When Christmas is over we all seem to breathe a sign of relief that things can settle down a bit. It is often a time when we

declare with certainly that the holiday season will never be like that again, and then the next year comes around and we do it all over again. I would like to propose the idea that you can find peace in your heart and joy in your life, not only now, but all year long. In the church calendar, this time of the year marks the beginning of Advent – a time of looking inside and movement from darkness into light with the birth of the Christ child. It is a time marked by preparation, anticipation and excitement for the light to be known to humanity. It is signified by an evergreen wreath that symbolizes unity, with three purple candles and one pink candle that are lit the four Sundays preceding Christmas. The candles represent hope, love, joy and peace – the very things we all want in our lives. Whether you are religious or not, the season of Advent has much to teach us about how we can approach life. It is really a spiritual practice that invites us to take time each

day to detach ourselves from our own busyness and enter into a place of reflection and quiet. It is a practice that literally moves us from our own darkness into the light that lives within us. Each of us has our own darkness that sometimes clouds our vision of how things should be or need to be, especially at holiday time. When our experience does not match our expectations we are often left feeling devoid of joy or happiness. Imagine a simple practice of finding time each day to quiet your mind and reflect on bringing more hope, love, joy and peace into your life. It does not need to be cumbersome or hard. It is a simple practice that begins with entering into communion with the Divine and recognizing that our deepest longing is for peace and joy. Sit with those words and reflect what they mean to you. Ask that your path be guided to prepare your heart and mind to see the light that is within you; and that is what brings peace and joy, not only now but for all time. May you be richly blessed with the things you seek! (Sandy Thibault is a spiritual life coach and director of the InnerLight Healing Center and Institute for Peace and Joy.

CAP Agency looking for Toy Drive help The Scott Carver Dakota Community Action Partnership (CAP) Agency is in full swing for the holiday season

and looking for support from the surrounding communities for its annual holiday-giving opportunities. The agency is looking for sponsors interested in hosting toy drives on the Scott Carver Dakota CAP Agency’s behalf. Toy distribution sponsors can include businesses, organizations, churches and individuals. The sponsors are responsible for holding a toy drive on the Scott Carver Dakota CAP Agency’s behalf and ensuring that all toys are delivered to the agency no later than Friday, Dec. 16. Collected toys should not be gift-wrapped and should have a value of at least $15. This program differs from the agency’s Hope for the Holidays program in that a sponsor gathers toys to be distributed to the greater community instead of being paired directly with a family. Specifically, these toys are distributed to children through age 14 living in Scott and Carver counties. “We have seen an increase in need for this and other holiday programs over the past few years,” said Linda Shelton, vice president of community services. “We have been so grateful for the communities’ response to this need in past years and hope to see their continued support this holiday season.” Those interested in sponsoring a family can e-mail info @ capagency.org or call (952) 402- 9856. Information about the toy distribution program is also available on

county employee resigned his spot. County Commissioner Dave Menden of Shakopee is the other representative. Marschall was chairing the board until she resigned on Oct. 12, prior to accepting her new job. Marschall said she spoke with the county attorney prior to pursuing the position to ensure there wouldn’t be a conflict of interest with her role as county commissioner. She said she was told there wouldn’t be an overlap problem since the CAP Agency deals with “passthrough” funding. Marschall believes her experience as a County Board member will benefit the CAP Agency, and the knowledge she will gain about the community in her new role will make her a

Traditionally, she said, the pageants take place in June in Las Vegas. “It depends on what NBC wants.” She noted that the Miss USA pageant is a partnership between NBC and Donald Trump. In the meantime, Panemalaythong will continue to work full time at her corporate job and attend classes at Normandale Community College where she is studying business, marketing and management. She also will make appearances at various events and “use her title to get out there and do things for the community.” “I’ll do a lot of appearances for nonprofit organizations and anyone who requests a Miss. Minnesota USA appearance,” she said. She will also encourage young women to try out for the pageant – specifically women from the Asian culture who are typically more shy and reserved. “It’s a great experience and you can make lifetime friends out of this,” she said. “I think it definitely shows dedication,

has learned a lot about such programs in recent years. In her new role, Marschall will be responsible for assembling per formance repor ts and making sure programs are meeting criteria. Marschall has an undergraduate degree in business administration from Metropolitan State University, as well as certificates in public service management and human resource management. In addition to being county commissioner, Marschall had been employed part-time as a substitute teacher in the recent past. She previously worked in real estate title work and as a branch manager for over 10 years with the Old Republic National Title Insurance Company. As a nonprofit organization, Bradpiece declined to disclose what Marschall’s salary will be at the CAP Agency.

Office has an antiquated records-management system, which would cost $ 5 million to $8 million to replace, Studnicka said. It is used across the sheriff’s office operation. Carver County’s system is more modern and possibly could be shared by Scott County. Wolf said he called up the Carver County Board chair and other Carver County commissioners a few months ago to gauge if there’d be enough political support across the river to consider a merger. “I kept hearing that some [people] were against it, that it wasn’t going to happen because of political lines and red tape,” Wolf said. “I called up Randy [Maluchnik] and said, ‘Can we take a look at this again?’ He said, ‘In the face of where we’re at, absolutely we should.’” Anderson, who experienced a dispatch consolidation within Dakota County, warned that the counties will have to be mindful of the psychological impact of a merger on employees. “W herever it lands, one group will feel like an outcast,” he said. “We don’t want to underestimate those things.” Scott County Commissioner Dave Menden of Shakopee said he’s heard both positive and negative opinions on the Da-

kota County consolidation. There will always be malcontents, Anderson said, but he found that the overwhelming majority in Dakota County were happy with the move. Studnicka said the negative comments may concern one city that pays more for emergency response now due to additional vehicles being dispatched. Anderson estimated it would be “several years” before a merger could occur between Carver and Scott counties. Commissioners gave their tacit support for the concept on Tuesday, Nov. 29. Maluchnik said he’s heard of dispatch consolidation efforts failing in other parts of the state. “If there’s not the political will to do this, we should think about that and let folks know before [time and effort are expended],” Maluchnik said. There are 31 dispatchers employed between the two counties. If a merger were to occur, officials expect that there would be no layoffs due to natural attrition, retirement and employees who would not want to be part of the merged system. Richard Crawford contributed to this report.

are developing schematic designs to determine the costs of expansion at either site. Each center is less than 10 years old and has at least some room for expansion. There are many models for consolidation, said Carver County Chief Sheriff’s Deputy Blair Anderson, who explained that the state study brought out a lot of unanswered questions. He said the counties must be very methodological as they analyze how to consolidate the systems. “We want to make sure we do this right so we don’t leave a mess for those behind us,” he said. The biggest cost savings would be in technology, said Carver County Sheriff Jim Olson. Both agencies will soon need a new phone system or upgrade, which cou ld cost $ 3 0 0,0 0 0. Between the two, they are also facing the replacement of 15 radio consoles, which cost more than $100,000 apiece. Fewer consoles would be required with just one dispatch center, the sheriffs said.

better county commissioner. She has served on a number of boards, including Metropolitan Area Agency on Aging, the Minnesota Department of Health, Metropolitan Council Transportation Advisory Board and Metropolitan Emergency Services Board. “My position in both will actually enhance each other,” she said. Her new position offers flexible hours, which will allow her to continue serving as county commissioner and on most of her present committees. Due to the timing of the meetings, she will have to give up a couple committees and become an alternate to one group, she said, noting that she also recently added three other assignments. Marschall said she applied for the job because she has always been interested in public services for people in need and

Dustin Earl Straley

Frances Yvonne Raver

Dustin Straley was born on June 26, 1986 in Burnsville to parents Timothy Straley and Laurie Covington. Dustin spent his early years growing up in Prior Lake with his older sister Angela by his side. As a child, he enjoyed camping with his dad at Wisconsin Dells and adventures with his mom at Marble Lake (near Two Harbors). Dustin was a Boy Scout and was proudly involved in Troop 233 in Prior Lake. He loved sharing this time with his mother who was a scout leader and he eventually earned his Life Scout badge and graduated Prior Lake High School in 2004. There were many things Dustin treasured in life – his cats, truck, video games, movies and the Minnesota Wild. Dustin was protected and comforted by his two cats, Mindy and Dodger who were always at his side. Dustin enjoyed playing video games, collecting movies and was an avid fan and season ticket holder of the Minnesota Wild. He loved attending home games with his dad and his sister. Dustin was gentle, loving and generous. Dustin was well organized and enjoyed sitting back, watching and observing life. But, Dustin’s biggest passion was his family and every moment spent with them was precious. He had equal love for sun sets on the boat in Prior Lake to the annual ocean cruise he shared with his father and sister. He also loved the vacations spent with his mother and sister in Mexico and Hawaii. After high school Dustin put family first by even working side by side with his dad in the ATM business. For a short time, he even had his own check cashing business in Lakeville. Over the last few years, Dustin overcame many trials and tribulations and was excited to start the next chapter in his life. Dustin bought his Uncle Pat’s house in Burnsville and was in the process of buying items and decorating his new home with his best friend, Eli who was moving in with him. Dustin passed away unexpectedly at the young age of 25 on Sunday, Nov. 27, 2011 in his bed, at home with his father Tim. Dustin’s generosity now continues even after his passing as an organ donor. His family is proud to know that Dustin will live on in others. Forever loved, Dustin will be deeply missed by parents, Timothy Straley of Prior Lake and Laurie Covington of Albuquerque, NM; sister, Angela Straley of Prior Lake; grandparents, Duane and Patricia Straley of Savage, Arlene Covington of Two Harbors; aunts and uncles, Michael (Jan) Straley of Lakeville, Pat Straley of Prior Lake, Maureen (Bill) Hermann of Prior Lake, Debbie (Mark) Rude of Brooklyn Park, Bill Covington of Duluth, Betsy (Greg) Frechette of Prior Lake, Patrick Covington of Flag Staff, AZ; cousins, Janelle, Kelli, Sarah, and Mark Straley, Ella and Lettie Hermann, Garrett, Brittany, Faith and Kalia Rude, Chris (Meg) Lausten, Brianna and Robbie Covington, Rachel and Bobby Frechette; best friend, Eli Wicklum and many other devoted friends. Dustin is preceded in death by his grandpa, William Covington. The visitation was Wednesday, Nov. 30 from 4-7 p.m. at Ballard-Sunder Funeral Home, Prior Lake and also one hour prior to the mass at church. The Mass of Christian Burial was Thursday, Dec. 1 at 1 p.m. at the St. John the Baptist Catholic Church, Savage. Dustin will be laid to rest at St. John’s Catholic Cemetery in Savage. Pallbearers for Dustin will be his uncles, Michael, Pat, Bill, Mark, Bill and Greg; cousins, Mark, Garrett, Chris Robbie and Bobby; friends, Eli Wicklum and Chris Wall.

Postal Service offers mail security tips As the holiday season approaches and families begin embarking on trips, the United States Postal Service is reminding customers to take the appropriate steps to protect their mail while they’re away. “Every day, the U.S. Postal Service safely delivers millions of va luable pieces of mai l,” USPS spokesperson Peter Nowacki said in a press release. “Postal Inspectors across the country work hard to protect and safeguard the mail. But with more than 150 million addresses, they can’t do the job alone. So the Postal Service offers these tips to help

keep your mail safe.” I Never send cash or coins in the mail. Use checks or money orders. I Promptly remove mail from your mailbox and don’t leave your mail out overnight. If you won’t be home until late, ask a trusted friend or neighbor to pick up your mail. I Have your local post office hold or temporarily forward your mail while on vacation or absent from your home for a long period of time. I If you don’t receive a check or other valuable mail you’re expecting, contact the issuing agency immediately.

I If you change your address, immediately notify your post office and anyone with whom you do business via the mail. I Consider starting a neighborhood watch program. By exchanging work and vacation schedules with trusted friends and neighbors, you can watch each other’s mailboxes (as well as homes). If you observe a mail thief in progress, call the local police immediately, and then call the U.S. Postal Inspection Service at (877) 876-2455.

CREATING KINDNESS

Significant changes ahead for secondary schedules Spanish will be mandatory for eligible sixth-graders BY MERYN FLUKER mfluker@swpub.com

Next year’s sixth-graders will be saying “hola” to Spanish class in the Prior Lake-Savage Area School District. Mandatory Spanish instruction is just one of the changes on the way for the 2012-13 school year. School Board members approved sweeping solutions Monday, Nov. 28 to secondarylevel course offerings designed to alleviate speed bumps encountered this year as district middle and high schools shifted to a six-period schedule and a four-quarter, two-semester calendar. Among the scheduling headaches for administrators and students were imbalanced class sizes and elective conflicts – with some students unable to secure placement in their first-, second- or even third-choice elective classes. “We ran into some huge problems … No matter how we ran the numbers, it was physically impossible,” said Prior Lake High School Principal David Lund. “We had students list seven or eight electives, and we still couldn’t get any of them.” Class sizes varied wildly between different sections of the same courses, particularly at the high school, where some classes had 24 students to one teacher and others had as many as 43 students per instructor – which created a space crunch in classrooms. Lund anticipates that offering quarter-length classes will ease those challenges, allow students more opportunities to retain the same teachers for multiple-quarter classes – such

as math, science and English – and increase schedule flexibility for the district’s oldest students. “Keeping student choice alive was an overriding principle of the six-period day committee,” said Lund in reference to the district group charged with developing the transition between schedules. Student choice was also an issue at the middle school, with as many as 30 percent of sixthgrade students obligated to take electives they did not select due to scheduling issues. That combined with hardship in staffing and low enrollment to push administrators to eliminate the current sixth-grade exploratory world-language class in favor of mandatory Spanish. Hidden Oaks Principal Sasha Kuznetsov cited the results of a 2010 Decision Resources Survey of the district – wherein 74 percent of parents selected Spanish as the preferred world language to teach in the middle school – as a reference for the change. “It would create more flexibility in the schedule,” Kuznetsov said. “The more kids registered [in Spanish], the more sections we have and the more opportunity to offer more sections throughout the day.” Ad minist rators a lso addressed another scheduling wrinkle with Monday’s decision, which also allows for review of the district’s Skyward software, used to create schedules. In the wake of the six-period-day switch, Skyward’s effectiveness has drawn concern. “When we have a technology tool, it should be able to assist us in making student scheduling easier, and that has not been the case,” said Jeff Holmberg, direc-

What’s new The Prior Lake-Savage Area School Board approved changes to secondary course offerings designed to alleviate scheduling conflicts and inconsistent class sizes. Here’s how things will look different for secondary students beginning in 2012-13: I Spanish will be mandatory for all eligible sixth-grade students. Students whose test scores are below proficiency will continue to enroll in reading/math extension courses. Spanish will replace the sixth-grade exploratory worldlanguage class, which will no longer be offered. I Equally balanced everyother-day course offerings, which may mean staff additions. I All Prior Lake High School courses will be divided into quarters, as opposed to the current mix of semesterand quarter-length classes.

tor of curriculum, instruction and assessment. In the future, administrators and staff will review Skyward’s functionality, including a meeting with Skyward representatives in December. Two separate committees will form next spring – one for possible curriculum revisions to be implemented for the 2012-13 school year, and another to review the overall effectiveness of the six-period day in advance of the 2013-14 school year.

Train the Brain. Up Your Game. Michaela and Mackenzie improved their performance in the classroom and on the ice! Special education wasn’t enough to help Danielle’s 11-year-old twins overcome their reading and math issues. When she read about brain training, Danielle knew it was the answer. “It just made sense,” she says, “and I was committed to getting Michaela and Mackenzie the help they needed.” After six months of brain training, Danielle is amazed at the transformation in her daughters. Their reading has improved and they’re testing at their grade level in math. It even helped the girls learn to play hockey! “They tried sports before, but lost interest,” Danielle says. “Now they focus on the game, can follow the rules, and are having fun!”

stay active and make it work.” While surgery, the subsequent six rounds of chemotherapy and 38 sessions of radiation made keeping her full-time position impossible, Voigt never lost her desire to serve students – and life soon offered her a second chance. Her final chemotherapy treatment fell on the last day of the 2010-11 school year. Too ill from the medicine to clean out her classroom, Voigt waited until her strength returned the following week to revisit to Edgewood and close up shop. There, she ran into Principal Deb Williams and Voigt offered her expertise part-time, should the opportunity arise. And arise it did, in the form of the district’s $350,000 grant from the Minnesota Department of Education for Alternative Delivery of Specialized Instructional Services. Voigt is once again a District 719 employee, only now she works four hours a day for four days each week as a Response to Intervention reading support instructor. “I wanted to keep busy so I had other things to think about. Keep busy and keep my stamina up,” she says. “It’s a building that I know with people I’m familiar with.” Voigt describes her job as helping kindergartners learn letters and sounds and calls seeing her students’ “love of learning” among the best parts of her job. “Seeing their faces when they recognize letters and learn to read words,” she says, “they’re such curious learners.” The students also provide plenty of the best medicine:

Char Voigt’s rèsumè alone is noteworthy: She has devoted 37 years to educating students, spending 36 of those years as a special-education teacher, never leaving the Prior LakeSavage Area School District. But her story also is downright inspiring. Voigt, a Jordan native and graduate of what is now Minnesota State UniversityMankato, had planned to retire on Dec. 12, 2012 – 12/12/12 – but life intervened earlier this year, derailing her plans. On New Year’s Day, Voigt was diagnosed with breast cancer. “I had to come back from break and tell my principal that this was going to be a very tough year from me to teach,” she says. “My doctor told me that I would not be able to keep teaching.” Voigt wasn’t paralyzed by her diagnosis. In fact, she sprung into action. Voigt was so committed to her position as a special-education teacher at Edgewood School that she actually postponed her lumpectomy. “I thought, ‘I have the teacher of the year reception and Edgewood math night,’” she says, listing two events she was chairing for the school. “I can’t have surgery.” Voigt – who eventually got a second opinion and a new doctor – underwent a successful surgery after both events ended. Her new doctor also provided Voigt with some pleasant information. “‘We get the best results from people who stay active,’” Voigt says, recalling her doctor’s words. “I decided to

laughter. “Sometimes they say the funniest things at this level,” Voigt says before launching into a story about a student who confused pilgrims with penguins. Voigt completed treatment in August and will have her first annual checkup in midDecember, where she will find out whether or not she is in remission. It’s been a long journey for Voigt, who started as a fourth-grade student teacher at WestWood Elementary School before edging out her college roommate to become the school’s new special-education teacher 37 years ago. What was once Voigt’s office is now the storeroom for WestWood’s custodial staff. “It’s grown so much since I first started,” Voigt says of the district. “Even the area has changed. It used to be a rural suburb.”

The Prior Lake girls basketball team just couldn’t come up with a big bucket when it needed it in its season opener Nov. 29. The Lakers fell 59-43 at Minnetonka in a game much closer than the fi nal score suggests. Prior Lake never led in the game, but was right on the Skippers’ heels up until the fi nal seven minutes when Minnetonka pulled away. “I didn’t feel too bad about this game and they way we played,” said L a ker s c oach M i ke Gid ley. “ We would have liked to have won. But we played a lot of new kids. We’ll get better. Everything that happened (against Minnetonka) is correctable. That’s what I told the team after the game.” The Lakers were down only 39-37 with just over eight minutes to play and had the ball three times with the chance to tie the game or take the lead. But Prior Lake could never get the big basket. Minnetonka went on a 10-0 run to seize control in the fi nal minutes. “We had some good looks too and had the ball inside a couple times,” said Gidley. “We got a couple steals, but then gave the ball right back.

“We would have liked to have won. But we played a lot of new kids. We’ll get better.” Mike Gidley

That’s just a product of being young and inexperienced.” Gidley shuffled players in and out of the lineup, applying a lot of full-court pressure, which helped the Lakers stay in the game. Prior Lake was also without senior captain Alyssa Eschrich, who sat out the game with an injury and her return in the next couple of weeks is still up in the air. The Lakers missed Eschrich’s three-point ability in the loss, as well as the 6-foot-1-inch forward’s rebounding inside. Gidley said his team will have a lunch-pail mentality this year, playing aggressive defense and battling on the boards. He feels the offense will come with more experience. Junior Deanna Busse led the Lakers with 12 points, hitting three from three-point range. Senior Molly Simpkins and junior Tiffaney Flaata each had eight points, while sophomore Kasie Vollmer had four.

Lakers coach Simpkins led the Lakers with five rebounds, while Flaata and Vollmer each had four. Senior Mary Kate Rivisto had a team-best four steals and three assists. Simpkins also had three steals. Prior Lake was just 6 of 13 from the free-throw line, which didn’t help the team as it tried to steal the lead away from the Skippers midway through the second half. Minnetonka led 31-28 at the break. The Lakers were back on the court Friday (results not available at press time) at No. 5-ranked White Bear Lake Area. Prior Lake’s home opener is Thursday Dec. 8 versus No. 2 Eden Prairie, last year’s Class 4A state runner-up, at 7:15 p.m. The Lakers will stay at home Dec. 13 to take on New Prague at 730 p.m., before opening the South Suburban Conference season at home versus Burnsville Dec. 16 at 7:15 p.m.

The Prior Lake boys basketball team has just nine wins over the last two seasons. But the recent struggles haven’t dampened the enthusiasm inside the program. Lakers coach Alex Focke brought some stability and hope to the program in his fi rst season last year, despite the team’s 6-21 overall mark, 3-15 in its fi rst season in the South Suburban Conference (SSC). “Being in the South Suburban and fi nishing toward the bottom was great motivation for kids to push themselves in the offseason,” said Focke. “It was a learning experience. “There are some big teams and strong athletes in this conference,” added Focke. “Last year we learned what it takes to play at the level.” Prior Lake isn’t shying away from tough competition outside the SSC. The team opens the season at home versus Henry Sibley Tuesday Dec. 6 at 7:15 p.m. Prior Lake faces Osseo in the Breakdown Tipoff Classic Saturday, Dec. 10 in Minnetonka. The Lakers also play at Class 4A state-runner Eden Prairie Dec. 16. “We will be tested all year,” said Focke. “There’s not a bad team on our schedule. We don’t have a guaranteed win.” What the Lakers do have is size – a lot of it. Senior co-captain Jack Harrison (7.3 points per game last year) returns to the front court. He stands 6-foot-7-inches. Next to him will be 6-10 junior Jeff Probert and 7-1 junior Carson Shanks. “We do have a lot of size and we are very excited about how they all worked so hard to improve in the offseason,” said Focke. Sophomore Jon Sobaski returns at point guard. He missed 17 games last year with a broken wrist, but when he played he showed he was more than ready for the varsity level. He averaged 9.5 points per game. Senior co - captains Matt Dysthe and Jack Kasier also return to the backcourt. Dysthe is a standout defensively, while also averaging 7.0 points last season.

The Burnsville boys basketball team will be loaded this winter – with a bunch of new faces. Second-year Blaze coach Matt Eppen returns just one player – senior Chase Roullier – who saw extended varsity minutes last year. The 6-foot-5-inch, 300-pound Roullier averaged just 2.9 points. He’s more of a rebounder and one who will take up a lot of space defensively in the paint. So who will score for the Blaze? Who will run the point? W ho wi l l joi n Rou l lier up front? “We’ll be very young and inexperienced,” said Eppen, whose team was 12-14 overall last year, 7-11 in the South Suburban Conference. “We have four sophomores and a ninth-grader on the roster. There are still a lot of pieces t hat we don’t k now about. We’ll have to see how these kids respond and how well they play together.” Seniors Ryan Swanson, Zach Mason and Bryan Heard each saw a little varsity action last year and figure to be more involved in the Blaze’s rotation this season.

Early tests on mat No. 11 Lakers face rough December schedule BY TOM SCHARDIN tschardin@swpub.com

The Prior Lake wrestling team will be tested early. And it could not have gotten any tougher than perennial national power Apple Valley, winners of the last six Class AAA state titles and 12 of the last 13. That’s who the Lakers faced at home Friday (results not available at press time) in a South Suburban Conference dual to open the season. “ We h ave a r e a l t ou g h schedule in December,” said Lakers coach Joe Block, the Class 3A Coach of Year last se a son. “Ou r te a m record after December may be deceiving. We are going to be challenged early on, but again our goal is to be successful

at the end of the season and I think our schedule lends itself to preparing us for the end of the year.” Prior Lake had a banner season a year ago, finishing 24-11 and taking third at the state team tournament, the program’s highest-ever fi nish. But that dominant team lost some big-time standouts, including four state qualifiers. Block does return four other state entrants – senior Matt Kahnke, juniors Tanner Johnshoy and Ben Rock and sophomore Sean O’Neil. Block said this year’s team will be young in many spots in the lineup, but “we’ll have pretty good balance throughout our lineup,” he said. The Lakers will need balance to compete with some of the qualify teams and in-

dividuals they will face in December. A d ay a f t e r f aci n g N o. 1-ranked Apple Valley, the No. 11 Lakers are competing in the Hastings Duals today (Saturday, Dec. 3). The host team is ranked No. 3 in the state. Also in the field are: No. 5 Coon Rapids, No. 9 Albert Lea Area, No. 12 Centennial and Stillwater. Prior Lake’s annual Ron Edwards Classic is set for Saturday, Dec. 10. Simley, ranked No. 1 in Class 2A, is the field, along with Farmington and Montgomery-Lonsdale. Prior Lake will also compete in the annual Christmas Tournament Dec. 16-17 in Rochester, which features many of the top-ranked wrestlers from all three classes.

Impressive debut Former Laker makes first team, All-MIAC BY TOM SCHARDIN tschardin@swpub.com

Tyler Maxwell played only seven games in his fi rst season on the Augsburg College football team. But those seven games were more than good enough to earn him All-Minnesota Intercollegiate Association Conference (MIAC) fi rst-team honors. Maxwell, a 2011 graduate of Prior Lake High School, was the only fi rst-year player among the 35 athletes named to the team. The 5-foot-10-inch, 190-pound running back set a single-season school record with 13 rushing touchdowns. Maxwell led the MIAC in rushing yards per game with 121.3. He was one of only two conference running backs to

average more than 100 yards per game. He a l s o le d t he conference in points per ga me (1 2 .0 ) w i t h h i s 14 t o u c h d ow n s (13 r u shi ng, one rec eivTyler ing). Maxwell Maxwell rushed for 849 yards on 169 carries for the season. That’s the most yards and carries for an Auggie running back since Bloomington Kennedy graduate Marcus LeVesseur’s single-season school records of 256 carries for 1,024 yards in 2004. Maxwell eclipsed 100 yards in five of his seven games and

set single-game school records with four touchdowns twice. His 173-yard, four-touchdown effort in his first collegiate ga me a ga i n st H a m l i ne on Sept. 17 ear ned him M I AC Offensive Player of the Week honors. Maxwell missed the Auggies’ last two games after injuring his knee in practice after the team’s 31-23 win over Macalester Oct. 29. He also missed the team’s season opener Sept. 3 due to an injury. Augsburg fi nished the year with a 6-4 overall mark, 4-4 in the MIAC. At Prior Lake, Maxwell led the Lakers with 1,164 yards rushing and 15 touchdowns his senior year, playing in just eight games. He was a two-year starter for the Lakers.

Junior Evan Kotchevar also got some time last year and will compete for playing time on the wing. Senior Will McPhearson and junior Noah Scanlon also figure into the mix in the backcourt. Focke said the team dedicated itself to the weights in the offseason. Getting stronger is an important element to competing in the SSC. “We def i nitely have t he size to match up with teams

up front,” said Focke. “Hopefu l ly, we a re st ronger. We also have the athletes to get into transition. We can play a few different styles. We have shooters. “Our style will depend on the team we are playing,” added Focke. “But we want to dictate the tempo of the game and make them play our style.” Prior Lake is also playing in the 16th annual Minnesota Timberwolves Shootout. The games will be played at the Target Center in Minneapolis Jan. 7. The Lakers will face a team from Cedar Falls, Iowa.

Juniors Cory Maxon, Adam Saba and Eli Rogers also figure into the mix. “ We h ave ve r y s m a l l amount of points back and n o b o dy who h a s s t a r t i n g experience except Chase,” said Eppen. “We know a lot of about these kids. We see them in the offseason. The biggest concern is who will make the jump to the next level. Who c a n play wit h a ny ki nd of consistency? ” The Blaze will quickly fi nd out where it stands in its season opener. Burnsville opens with perennial power and No. 1-ranked Hopkins, the defending Class 4A state champs, at home Dec. 6 at 7 p.m. Burnsville’s second game is Dec. 13 and is also at home versus No. 6 Eden Prairie, the state runner-up a year ago. So it’s a pretty tough start for a team with just a smidge of varsity experience back. “That’s fi ne with us,” said Eppen. “That’s how you learn. That’s how get better. I’m excited for our kids. We’re going to have some good moments and we’ll have some tough games. The important thing is we keep getting better.” Eppen said the goal is to be at top form when the Section 2AAAA tournament rolls around in March. But that’s a long ways from now. It will also be a new section for the Blaze, coming over from 3AAAA. Eden Prairie is in also in the 2AAAA field, along with Shakopee, Chanhassen, Prior Lake, Bloomington Kennedy, Bloomington Jefferson and Lakeville South. “There are a lot of good teams in this part of the state,” said Eppen. “There are good teams in this section. There were good ones in the other one. We’ll have to be at our best to be a factor.”

The Burnsville wrestling team has a long ways to go before it’s ready to compete with the state’s elite. But that’s the goal of fi rstyear coach Sam Sand – to become a perennial power down the road. “I look for our team to improve on the dual wins we have had the past two years,” said Sand. “I hope to finish in the top half of our section, in the section dual tournament. I believe this is a realistic goal, but it will be a tough one to obtain. “We do have some holes in the lineup right now with at least having two weights open (106 and 220),” added Sand. “We also have some of our key guys at the same weight classes and depending on what weights everyone goes will depend on our success.” Sand takes over for Bill Soderholm, who decided to retire after 17 seasons of leading the Blaze. Soderhol m f inished with a career dual record of 167-144-2.

So there will be no rest for the Lakers before the New Year. Three Lakers were ranked in the fi rst Class 3A individual poll. Johnshoy was No. 1 at 106 pounds, while Kahnke was No. 4 at 145 and O’Neil is No. 7 at 120.

Burnsville senior Andy Underhill will look to get back to state this winter for a third straight season. He’s ranked No. 4 in the state at 126 pounds in the preseason poll.

Sand is a North Dakota native, graduating from Ellendale High School in 2002. He had a successful college career at Jamestown College and has been coaching high school and middle-school wrestling in North Dakota and South Dakota since 2007. Sand made his Blaze coaching debut Friday (result not available at press time) at home versus Bloomington Kennedy in a South Suburban Conference dual. The Blazes’ second dual is against Thursday, Dec. 8 at perennial national power Apple Valley, winners of the last six Class 3A state titles and 12 of the last 13. Sand’s goal is to get his Blaze to a level to compete with Apple Valley on a yearly basis. That’s easier said than done since the

Eagles have dominated the state for decades – 29 straight section titles. But nonetheless, it’s a goal definitely worth shooting for. The Blaze returns one state entrant from last year’s team that fi nished 2-6 in the conference (2-8 overall). That’s senior Andy Underhill, who is ranked No. 4 at 126 pounds in the fi rst Class 3A poll. Underhill has competed in two state tournaments in his career, going 1-2 last year and 119 pounds and fi nishing with a 29-10 record. He was 2-2 at state as a sophomore at 112 pounds. Sophomore Bill Underhill, ranked No. 8 at 120 pounds, was a state entrant as an eighth-

grader at 103 pounds. He fell short of state last year, taking third at 112 pounds in the Section 3AAA individual tourney. He finished last year with a 24-6 record. Other wrestlers Sand expects to make an impact are: seniors Dmytro Hutsal, Harry Bramley, BJ Vang, Andre Sellars and Erik Morgel, juniors Lucas Grossoehme and Alonso Quintana and sophomore Jack O’Brien. “We will be a stronger team in individual tournaments as opposed to duals,” said Sand. “I think we can qualify at least five for the state tournament and if we have a little luck and things go our way we could possible get seven there.”

Johnshoy made his firstever state appearance count last year, taking second at 103 pounds and fi nishing the year with a 38-10 record. Kahnke competed in his third state tourney last year, taking fi fth at 135 pounds and finishing with a 34-7 record. O’Neil also made his fi rst state tourney at 112 pounds, losing his only match and fi nishing with a 31-14 mark.

Rock competed in his second state tourney. He also lost his only match and finished 29-10. Seniors back who got some varsity time last year are: Tucker Breitung, Ross Larson, Stephen Lesko, Sayed Rahmani and Brandon Lustila. Others back are: juniors Ryan Norton and Tim Schwanbeck, sophomores Blake Car-

lisle and Robby Schultz and ninth-grader Alex Hart. Prior Lake is the only team ranked from Class 2AAA in the first team poll, although Eden Prairie and Shakopee are expected to provide some resistance to Lakers in the section. Apple Valley and Prior Lake are the only SSC teams ranked, finishing one-two, respectively, in the conference last year.

The South Suburban Conference dance season is shaping up to be a thrilling ride. Through two high kick/ precision meets, Burnsville and Eastview have matched kick for kick with the Blazettes beating the defending Class AAA state champs twice. The first time was Nov. 22 at Lakeville South and the second time came at Prior Lake Nov. 29. Burnsville won fi rst place on a tie-breaker. Apple Valley ended up third, followed by Lakeville North. Eastview has won two of the last three high-kick Class AAA state titles, while Blazettes last won in 2008. Eastview also won in 2004, 2006 and 2007, while Burnsville won four straight from 2000 to 2003. So since 2000, two power programs have combined to win 10 of the last 12 state titles. The South Suburban Conference Championships will be held Dec. 17 at Eagan. There are two conference jazz funk competitions before then – Tuesday Dec. 6 at Rosemount and Dec. 12 at Apple Valley. Both start at 7:15 p.m. The Blazettes, led by senior captains Katherine Kashevatsky, Alex Pearson and Lexi Wahl, are also competing in the Chaska Invitational today (Saturday, Dec. 3).

We knew what we needed to improve on and we completed that task and placed fi fth. “I am extremely excited to see what other accomplishments the team makes this year,” added Falkenberg. The Lakers are also preparing for the back-to-back jazz funk meets.

Home for the Holidays is often an eye opener for adult children As the holidays approach many of us are making plans to celebrate with those we love. For many, the holidays are a time to visit and reconnect with family we may not see throughout the year. For many, going “home for the holidays” is an event that is anticipated all year long. Adult children return home expecting to taste Grandma’s homemade cookies or to experience Mom and Dad’s beautifully decorated home. For some adult children their visit home may yield some surprises. They discover Grandma’s refrigerator is empty, except for a few items that expired a month ago, and she has not made her homemade cookies. She has also lost a great deal of weight. You ¿nd Mom and Dad’s home ¿lled with clutter, piles of old newspapers and a month’s worth of unopened mail. Suddenly your holiday season takes on a whole new meaning and brings with it questions and concerns. How did this happen? Are they safe living on their own? Should they continue to drive? Is she safe using the stove? Will he remember to bathe? Can they maintain their house? Will they remember to take their medications? As Americans age, some will face problems with their cognition or thinking. Cognition involves a number of skills, including memory, orientation, judgment, problem recognition/solving, decision-making, attention, sequencing, and frustration tolerance. “Often problems in these areas are not noticed by family until a crisis arises such as a fall or a hospitalization” states Theresa Klein, Occupational Therapist and Dementia Consultant for Augustana Emerald Crest Assisted Living. Often an aging relative may notice problems or changes in themselves but do not want their family members to know. Suddenly adult children are forced to make decisions about their loved one’s ¿nances, health, safety, and appropriateness of the current living

environment. When a family is faced with these questions they often feel overwhelmed, alone, and unsure of available resources. Families are often reluctant to “pry”. They do not want to “offend” their loved one by suggesting they need assistance. So, they take notice of the situation and continue to check-in and evaluate. “I see families that leave it to fate. Mother or father are left at home until something drastic happens which forces an immediate decision”, states Christine Drasher, Director of Admissions Augustana Emerald Crest. Other families will make their best guess and hope the level of assistance put in place is adequate. “It does not have to be a guessing game. Families don’t have to wait for a crisis to make a decision. There are signs and “red Àags” that can be recognized

to be able to make the right choice,” states Theresa Klein. One resource that can be assist families in identifying “red Àags” is an Occupational Therapist. By engaging individuals in several predetermined activities the therapist is able to make an assessment of the individual’s cognition, identifying the individual’s current abilities as well as existing de¿cits. Once determined, the therapist can interpret the meaning of the results to the family and caregivers providing them with strategies for care, ideas how they can intervene, i.e. how to compensate for the skills their loved one no longer has, and offers recommendations for appropriate level of supervision to assure safety” states Klein. Klein observes that with information provided by the Occupational Therapists, “families often report an

increased sense of con¿dence and feel more equipped to Home for the Holidays is often an eye opener for adult children make informed decisions regarding the health and safety of their loved ones.” “The holidays are a huge eye opener for many adult children,” comments Drasher. “Our phone is the busiest in January after adult children recognize from their visit that their loved one is declining. If families knew there was a way to predict and get accurate strategies to meet their frail loved one’s needs I believe they would feel more con¿dent in their decisions and avoid crisis.” If you are interested in learning more about Dementia Resources or Augustana Emerald Crest call Christine at 952-9082215.

Family tales ‘A Silent Night for PEEF’ at Stages Theatre BY KARLA WENNERSTROM editor@edenprairienews.com

I

n Eden Prairie author Tom Hegg’s second PEEF story, Santa comes back to visit PEEF, finding he’s a little bit worse for wear. However, Santa finds there’s been a lot of life experience in the little bit of dirt on the bear – as well as the rip and the tear. Hegg’s son Adam, director of theater programs for FAIR School, has adapted the story for the stage. The play, “A Silent Night for PEEF,” is running at the Stage Theatre Company in Hopkins through Dec. 26. When asked if he consulted with his dad in writing the adaptation, Adam, who was an inspiration for PEEF, replied: “In all things.” “He’s an actor and a teacher and a writer, and I am also an actor, a teacher and a writer,” the Minneapolis resident said. “I am roundly in his shadow.” Tom said he is delighted with Adam’s interpretation of his book. “I am absolutely thrilled

New books by Hegg Tom Hegg, famous for writing “A Cup of Christmas Tea,” has some new books coming out this year, including “Little Dickens: A Droll and Most Extraordinary History,” he said. The new story features characters from Hegg’s favorite Dickens books, “A Christmas Carol,” “Great Expectations,” “Oliver Twist,” and “A Tale of Two Cities.” “It is my homage to Charles Dickens” in honor of Dickens’ 200th birthday, coming up on Feb. 10, 2012, Hegg said. Hegg is set to sign copies of the book from noon to 1 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 8. In the spring, he will release “Bring It!” a book to be given to a high school graduate. In 2013, he plans to release “Baby Talk,” a gift for someone about to have a baby come into their life.

with what he’s able to do,” said Tom, a drama teacher at the Breck School in Minneapolis. “I’ve been in theater all my life, but I’ve never written for the theater. He’s able to look into the story line and invent characters that do not exist in the book as it is written, but bring the book to life on stage in a way that nothing else could.” While Tom’s book is told as a memory, starting with PEEF telling Santa about the year he has had, Adam said the play offers highlights from that year and ends with PEEF getting ready to tell Santa what happened. Both praised the play’s

music by Michael Mahler. “The songs knock me out,” Tom said. “When you can’t say anything powerful enough with words, it’s time to go into a song. “That’s absolutely thrilling to see it come from two dimensions into three dimensions and add song and dance to it. I mean what more could you want?” Adam, who was about to become a father himself while writing the script, said he gained new insight from the experience. When he submitted the script to his editor, he was holding his 30-hour-old daughter, Imogen Beatrice, in his lap.

Tom and Adam Hegg pose with PEEF. “I’ve always been told that I was an inspiration for PEEF,” Adam said. Adam said he always knew intellectually that he was an inspiration for PEEF, but holding Imogen, it became real. The entire family, Tom and wife Peggy, Adam and wife Breanne (Imogen will attend a matinee later), planned to attend Nov. 17 opening night. “You bet we’re going to be there,” Tom said. “This will be the first time I have seen the show.

On the hunt for the perfect tree BY KRISTIN HOLTZ kholtz@swpub.com

Nothing beats the crisp pine smell of a freshly cut Christmas tree. Whether you’re cutting your own or buying one at the local tree lot, selecting the perfect tree is all about freshness. Donna Revak, owner of Revak Nursery in Elko and Lakeville, says buying a tree from a reliable source is one of the best ways to ensure you’re getting the freshest fir or spruce possible. When choosing a tree, grab the branch and gently pull your hand toward you. If needles come off in your hand, choose a different tree, she said. One word of warning: Choose a tree that’s not taller than the room in which you plan to place it. “Amazingly that simple little rule is forgotten when families go out and pick up a tree,” said Revak, who’s heard numerous stories of families cutting a foot off the tree to get it in the house. “It never seems to look as big in the field or lot as it does in the house.” Always make a fresh cut before putting the tree in the stand and be sure to keep the stand full of water, Revak said. The Minnesota Christmas Tree Association breaks down the characteristics of the most commonly grown Minnesota trees to find the variety that’s best for you.

BALSAM FIR Has distinctive long, dark green needles, ½-to-1½-inch, that are soft to the touch. The aroma is uniquely fragrant. Its branches are layered and can support a variety of ornaments and decorations.

CANAAN FIR Similar in appearance to the Balsam fir, its needles tend to be about 1-inch in length and vary in color. The foliage can be similar to the appearance of the Fraser fir.

Cutting your own Christmas tree is a tradition for many people. “It’s a family event, part of the holiday celebration,” said Donna Revak, owner of Revak Nursery in Elko and Lakeville.

Soft-to-the-touch needles that are flat and short, 3/8-to1¼-inch, with rounded tips and a silvery underside. The dark green color and pleasant fresh-cut aroma make this a frequently requested tree.

Minnesota’s state tree has dark green needles 3-to-5inches in length, creating a full and pleasing shape. Tree

How to care for your tree I Make a fresh cut. Before placing your tree in the stand, re-cut the trunk at least 1 inch from the bottom. This reopens the tree stem so it can drink water. I Don’t place tree by heat. Keep tree away from heat sources like heat registers, space heaters, fireplaces, stove and electronics because they will speed up the tree’s evaporation. I Water immediately. After making the fresh cut, place tree in stand with warm water. Stand should hold at least one gallon of fresh water. I Don’t add anything to water. Plain tap water works best, since some commercial additives have been shown to decrease a tree’s moisture and increase needle loss. I Check water level daily. Don’t allow water to drop below the fresh cut. Christmas trees are very thirsty and may drink two gallons of water the first day. Source: Minnesota Christmas Tree Association, mncta.com

has excellent needle retention.

SCOTCH PINE A bushy and full tree with 1-to-3-inch stiff needles in clusters that fill every branch with dense foliage. Colors on the conical shaped trees vary from green to blue-green.

WHITE PINE The lacy blue-green needles, 2- to-4-inch in length, are graceful to the eye and soft to the touch. It has a delightful pine fragrance and excellent needle retention.

COLORADO SPRUCE Foliage ranges from lovely powdery blue to a rich dark green color with long lasting, stiff and pointed needles. The layered branching pattern and its stout strong branches are ideal for hanging heavy ornaments.

WHITE SPRUCE Sometimes called the “old fashioned” Christmas tree because of its shape. The needles are ½-to-1-inch long and fill every branch with dense foliage. It makes an ideal table-top tree as well as a full-sized tree.

Ask Dr. Josh DIGESTION Doctors of chiropractic have helped millions of people obtain relief from back pain, neck pain, tension headaches and other painful Dr. Watkins symptoms related to the spine. What most people don’t know is that chiropractic care may help with digestive issues as well. Nerves from many regions of the spine have a definite connection to digestion. These spinal nerves are capable of speeding up or slowing down the passage of food through the gastrointestinal tract, increasing or decreasing the amount of digestive juices secreted into the tract, and sending a greater or lesser supply of blood to various digestive organs. The consequences of disturbing these spinal nerves are not necessarily limited to spinal pain, but can potentially involve any function affected by these nerves, including digestion. *e-mail your questions to: info@watkinsfamilychiropractic.com
