Savage student gets shot at Guthrie stage stardom

Savage man dies in early morning apartment ďŹ re BY ALEX HALL ahall@swpub.com

A 49-year-old man was found dead Monday morning after fi refi ghters put out a fi re in his fi rst-level apartment in downtown Savage. The man was later identified by authorities as Timothy John Davidson. Shortly after 4 a.m., fi refi ghters were called to an apartment complex at 3950 126th Street for a report of smoke coming from an apartment unit. The resident from the above unit heard smoke alarms sounding and went downstairs to investigate. Upon fi nding smoke, the individual called 911. When fi refighters arrived, Savage police were already on the scene and had evacuated the building. “The police officers did an excellent job,� said Savage Fire Chief Joel McColl. “The door of the unit was hot to the touch, so they knew that

Gianna Bonello-Freund has spent four years acting in fairy tales. Then her life turned into one. The 11-year-old from Savage began acting when she was in second grade at St. John the Baptist Catholic School, where she is still a student, performing in productions with her classmates as well as through Prairie Fire Children’s Theatre. Through the traveling drama company, Gianna found an outlet for her intrinsic creativity – conveying the classic stories of “Sleeping Beauty,� “The Wizard of Oz� and “Beauty and the Beast.� “She’s very dramatic,� says her mother, Liz Bonello. “She’s always put plays on with her friends and cousins. She’s a natural.� Gianna has felt at home on stage since her first performance. “I kind of felt weird because all of my friends saw me on stage, but then it got really fun,� she recalls of her debut at St. John’s. Now in sixth grade, Gianna’s previous acting experience is going to good use as she takes the stage daily, and nightly, at Minneapolis’ treasured Guthrie Theater in this year’s production of Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol.� Gianna tackles four roles as one of 13 members in the show’s children’s ensemble and her commitment to the production has even followed her home. “Sometimes the singing and the dancing doesn’t stop,� Liz says. “She’s been doing the Guthrie dance around the house.� While the songs and moves may have changed, the Bonello-Freund household has never been a quiet one.

was not a survivable environment because there was fi re in there, and so they evacuated the rest of the building.� Firefighters had to break a window to enter the apartment, and when they did there was zero visibility as the smoke was so thick. Firefighters located the fi re and quickly knocked it down. After a search of the apartment, Davidson was found dead. “Obviously no time of year is any good,� said McColl, “but to lose a loved one around the holiday season, it creates more of an impact on not only the family, but the other tenants and the fi refighters as well.� Within two hours of arrival, the smoke was cleared and residents were allowed back into the building. No other apartment units were affected, but there was smoke damage throughout the fi rst floor.

Ratliff, a freshman at Prior Lake High School, was airlifted to Hennepin County Medical Center in Minneapolis on Nov. 28 after he was struck by an SUV traveling south on Highway 13 while riding his bike to school. Ratliff was crossing Highway 13 near Oakland Beach Avenue just before 8 a.m. when he was hit. The driver of the SUV, 76-year-old Prior Lake woman Janice Miller, suffered no apparent injuries, according to the Minnesota State Patrol. The boy was wearing a bike helmet, according to paramedics.

City says post office building purchase is ‘a done deal’ Council gives go-ahead for $745,000 purchase and lease-back option BY AMY LYON editor@savagepacer.com

Considering the recent struggles of the U.S. Postal Service, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that the Savage Post Office had considered closing its doors on McColl Drive and selling its building. But now, after more than two years of discussions and tentative agreements with the city of Savage to purchase the building and lease

space back to the post office, City Administrator Barry Stocks says “It’s a done deal.� The Savage City Council unanimously agreed Monday night to give City staff the authority to execute a purchase agreement, five-year lease agreement and any other documents necessary to acquire the post office building. The purchase price listed in the post office’s letter of intent is $745,000, which is $35,000 less than the tenta-

tive agreement the City had with the post office in September 2010. According to Stock, the current assessor’s market value for the property is $850,000. “It’s been important for the city as a part of our campus plan to maintain control over this building and probably even fi rst and foremost above that, to maintain a post office presence so that our residents and busi-

Savage ranks 7th in state for quality of life Savage ranked No. 7 in Minnesota and No. 58 in the Midwest (out of 955 communities) for its quality of life, according to The Business Journals, a publication for business audiences. The ranking was just one slot above neighbor Prior Lake, which ranked No. 8 in the state and No. 59 in the region. Cha n hassen ra n ked No. 1 in Minnesota and No. 2 3 in the Midwest. The top five Minnesota cities on the list a re Ch a n h assen, Mendot a Heights, Woodbury, Eden Prairie and Edina. When compared

against other Midwestern cities, Mendota Heights ranked 30th, Woodbury 41st, Eden Prairie 45th and Edina 51st. The “On Numbers” analysis done by The Business Journals used a 20-part formula to compare each community’s statistics and looked for “wellrounded areas with healthy economies, light traffic, moderate costs of living, impressive housing stocks and strong educational systems.” In August of this year, CNN’s Money magazine ranked the city of Savage 51 out of 100 sma l l tow ns feat u red t hat

“stand out in the qualities American families care about most - great job opportunities, top-notch schools, safe streets, economic strength, nice weather, plenty to do, and more.” In March of 2010, Savage ranked No. 9 as a Best Affordable Suburb in Minnesota by Bloomberg BusinessWeek. Bloomberg cited the availability of park space, the city’s growth rate, percentage of residents who were married with children, as well as income and unemployment statistics. Compiled by Amy Lyon

New market value exclusion has city officials scrambling for explanations

Stock said it is likely many residents feel like Hager. “Unfortunately, the City is left to try to explain to you what the state legislature did, and I’m not sure if you even ask many of the state legislators if they could explain what they did,” said Stock. “It was simply a way to cut $250-some million out of the state budget deficit and we’re left holding the bag.”

nesses do not have to go to Prior Lake, Burnsville or Shakopee to pick up packages and mail packages,” said Stock. The City hopes to close on the property by Jan. 31, 2012, with the five-year lease going into effect once remodeling work is completed by the post office – estimated at three-tosix months. In the meantime, the City and post office will enter into an interim lease agreement whereby the post office will be responsible for all utilities, maintenance, snowplowing and lawn care. The post office will be responsible for building a separation wall between its portion of the building and the remainder of the building that will be leased out to another tenant. It is not anticipated that the post office will close during the remodeling as most of the work will occur in the rear warehouse area. The only expected change is that the post office boxes to the left of the entrance will be moved to another location within the building.

ROOM FOR RENT The post office building at 6100 McColl Drive was built in 1995 and is just over 11,500 square feet. The post office plans to rent 2,790 square feet at a cost of $12 per square foot and 900 square feet of loading dock

a credit, paid by the state, and that credit was subtracted proportionally from the portions of the tax bill attributed to each city or township, county and school district. The state will no longer pay that credit. According to Rider’s presentation, the new HMVE “reduces the calculation of ‘tax capacity’ on residential homesteads with a market value of less than $413,000 by excluding a portion of the value from tax capacity. “That means when you count up everybody’s home values,” explained Rider, “that pie of who was able to make payment on all those taxes that needed to equal the amount of levies for their city, county and schools is now smaller. And because that pie is smaller, that means in order to come up with the same number of dollars, assuming everybody kept their levies equal to zero, your tax rates are going to have to come up a little.” The impact of the new law will vary across the state, and even between the three main cities in District 191, Rider said. Had the new law been implemented last year, Rider said a residential home in Burnsville valued at $200,000 would have seen an increase in school-

designated property taxes from $ 943 to $ 964, or 2.2 percent. Rider said that she only did projections for property in Burnsville, and that those numbers could differ for the other cities in the district. However, because of the alternative compensation levy adjustment that will be giving $895,404 back to the taxpayers this year, most taxpayers will not see a tax increase in fiscal year 2012. Rider said property taxes for a $200,000 home in Burnsville are projected to stay the same as last year, and a home valued at $ 350,000 is expected to see a $1 decrease in property taxes. The alternative compensation levy adjustment is only a one-year deal, though, meaning taxpayers can expect their proper ty taxes to increase starting in fiscal year 2013. At the end of the Truth in Taxation meeting, residents were given the opportunity to make statements or ask questions. Had enough questions or concerns been raised, the board could have put off certifying last month’s levy renewal to a later date. However, no residents at the meeting elected to speak. The board unanimously voted to certify the levy.

space at a rate of $2 per square foot. The total lease revenue from the post office would be $35,280 per year. Stock estimated that the utility and maintenance expenses for the entire building would be about $31,000 per year, which would give the city an operating profit of approximately $4,000 per year. “And that’s not even leasing out the remainder of the space,” said Stock. The post office will be responsible for the costs associated with remodeling the common area and entrance to the remaining 8,000-square-feet of building space. That space will then be marketed to another tenant. “In the event that, after five years, [the post office] doesn’t want to renew the lease, the City would have a number of options. Sell the building outright, continue to lease it out, or you could use it for some unanticipated future city use,” said Stock.

City’s Economic Development Commission (EDC) suggested leasing out the remaining space to a nonprofit organization or using it for a public purpose. “What’s the value to the community to keep the post office here? ” asked Stock. “There might be a cost for doing business to have that here. You can’t calculate the return on investment of basically good will.” Strom admitted that using the space as a community resource “puts a whole different spin on it,” but he urged the City Council to obtain more information about “the whole package” before making a decision. For example, Strom said, the City should run more numbers using a market capitalization rate to determine if it’s a profitable entity. “You’re taking a great deal of risk in purchasing this property,” Strom said. “You really have no plan.” Councilman Al McColl asked if the City was ready to begin marketing the remaining 8,000 square feet to potential tenants. Stock said marketing would begin once the sale is completed – possibly in February. Councilman Gene Abbott said that the space could be “down the line” a senior or youth center. “I’ve seen other cities put an awful lot of money into remodeling senior centers and building new senior centers,” said Abbott. “In the back of my mind, that’s a valuable building

for that.”

September, we talked about trying to keep this number as close to zero change as possible from the previous fiscal year, keeping the taxes down for our taxpayers,” said Rider. That drop in levy monies is mostly due to an adjustment to the alternative compensation levy for taxes payable in 2012. “We levied last year anticipating we would have the alternative compensation in process this year,” said Rider. “Because that is not the case, as you know, then they are going to adjust our current levy for last year’s levy.” Because of the adjustment, $895,404 will be credited back to taxpayers, Rider said. Also, because the operational levy passed last month was a renewal of an existing levy, it will not cause property taxes to rise. The renewal also doesn’t take effect until fiscal year 2013. “There is no impact to the current year’s taxes as a result of the referendum,” said Rider. Still, property taxes will go up in time, said Rider, because of the homestead tax changes. The repealed MVHC depended only on the value of the property and gave homeowners with property valued under $413,000

Savage resident Gary Strom questioned the City’s position in purchasing the post office. “It sounds like the City is trying to enter into an agreement to be a landlord and lease this building out to private enterprise,” said Strom. But Stock clarified that the tenant for the remaining 8,000 square feet of building space has yet to be determined. In fact, several members of the

FUNDING SOURCE The City intends to use funds stashed away in its Community Investment Fund to purchase the post office building. The fund was created more than 10 years ago using surplus money from completed bond projects including prepaid assessments that generated income interest earnings. To date, the Community Investment Fund has accumulated $850,000. Over the years the City has used proceeds from that fund for the Environmental Learning Center building and The Savage Depot. Stock said that the lease revenue from the Depot is deposited annually back into the Community Investment Fund. Councilwoman Christine Kelly said that by using the dollars from the Community Investment Fund, the tax impact on residents would be “nonexistent.” The City received notice in the fall of 2009 that the USPS was considering the sale and relocation of the postal facility in Savage. A tentative agreement was reached with the city in September of 2010, but in October 2010 the post office “pulled back the reins,” according to Stock and decided to take a closer look at how much space they really needed. Post office officials were not available to comment on the sale.

Homestead credit shift to raise property taxes Ta xes were t he focus at the Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School Board’s Thursday, Dec. 1 meeting, as the board held their state-mandated Truth in Taxation meeting and certified the roughly $10 million operational levy that was renewed last month. Business Services Director Lisa Rider conducted the Truth in Taxation part of the meeting, and during her budget and property tax presentation, she revealed that property taxes will be going up for District 191 residents, although most residents won’t be impacted until fiscal year 2013. But it isn’t because of the levy renewal, she explained; it’s because of the state legislature’s shift from a market value homestead credit (MVHC) to a homestead market value exclusion (HMVE). The amount of money the district receives from taxpayer levies in fiscal year 2012 is actually expected to drop by 2.85 percent from the previous year, from $ 33,917,260 to $32,950,191. “Our goal for this year, taking a look at this levy back in

The Savage City Council held a public meeting Monday, Dec. 5 and attempted to explain the various components of the tax statements property owners recently received in the mail from Scott County. T he public meeti ng was required by state law prior to the City’s adoption of its 2012 budget and levy, which will take place at the City Council’s Dec. 19 meeting. Only two residents spoke at the meeting and their questions centered on understanding their tax statement. “My taxable market value has decreased about 10 percent, yet I’m being charged 3.6 percent higher taxes,” said Rich Hager, a resident of Inglewood Circle. Gary Strom, a resident of West 154 th Street, asked for a better understanding “in layman’s terms” of what’s happening to property values. “I’d like to understand the smoke and mirrors of what’s taking place on this,” he said. Savage Finance Director Shelly Kolling reminded residents that there are three major components that affect property taxes: county, city and school district. This year, a new factor has been thrown into the city portion of the tax equation with the creation of the market value exclusion, which has replaced the state’s market value homestead

credit and creates an “adjust- these notices that the value ment” to the taxable market of my home has dropped but value of many properties. my taxes have gone up,” said As an example, Kolling cited Kolling. “When really, on this a property with a taxable mar- home, the exclusion is $16,900.” ket value of $222,800 in 2011 City Administrator Barry that had a taxable market value Stock attempted to further clarof $209,300 for 2012. ify with another scenario. “If “That is a substantial de- my taxable market value last crease.

Time to take back the Thanksgiving holiday Happy Mer r y T ha n ksgivi ng Christmas! Or for you non-denominational types: Happy Holidays! This is what you get when your column falls between Thanksgiving and Christmas. W hile the Christmas (sorry, Holiday) season is indeed upon us, I’d like to take a step back to T ha n ksg ivi ng. Yes, t hat lit t le remembered holiday right before the kick off to the holiday shopping season. Do you remember? It was before “Get-to-the-store Thursday,” Black Friday, Small-Business Saturday, “Take-a-breath-Sunday” and Cyber Monday. While the Thanksgiving “holiday” does not even merit an entire day anymore – unless you count standing in line to get into a store as a Thanksgiving holiday tradition – it is still, to me, one of the most important holidays. Christmas is centered on the act of giving and receiving and, for those who are of a religious faith, there are other meanings, too. The whole intent of Thanksgiving is not only to be grateful for the bountiful harvest (or trip to the mega-mart) but also to be with family and to be thankful for our time together. In the Savage Lienau household, Thanksgiving this year meant traveling back to Wisconsin to see my parents and family while not seeing my wife’s family here in the cities. This defi nitely made for an interesting holiday – not so much the travel (although the little guy was quite the bear to travel with) or the family interaction (no big blowups!) but rather the fact that we had to decide which family to visit. My wife’s family is quite large and well centered in the Twin Cities area. Before our son was born, we typically stayed in the cities for major holidays and then visited my family on weekends prior to or following the holiday. With the birth of our son, everything changed. Grandma and Grandpa Lienau want to see the little guy! So I am thankful that my wife and I are able to discuss the situation and make an equitable arrangement for holiday visitation. Certainly in a relationship there is a lot of give

and take, and what better time to exercise this give-and-take principle than during Thanksgiving. It makes me wonder why our leaders can’t exercise the same kind of give and take to guide our country and national interests, especially during this time of the year. From Washington and from the litany of GOP debates, all that we hear is continued divisiveness and derision. I guess this should not be unexpected, because again we’ve downplayed the Thanksgiving holiday to be less about being thankful and more about the kick off to the shopping season. But there is still the glimmer of Thanksgiving out there. An interesting activity that our daycare provider had for the kids during the prelude to Thanksgiving was a “Thankful Tree.” Simply, it was a tree that the kids hung leaves on that represented items/things for which they were thankful. Items l i ke Mom my, Daddy, P uppies, Lunch, Naps and Friends were all on the tree. Amazingly, there was not any mention of rampant commercialism or consumerism on the Thankful Tree. We can learn a lot from that. By simplifying how we view the i mpor t a nce of fa mi ly a nd ou r everyday life, we can take back Thanksgiving and again make it a complete holiday full of family and good choices.

LETTERS FROM READERS SCHOOLS

District 191 forced into short-term borrowing Despite repeated concerns voiced by parents, school advocates and district officials about using education funding as a slush fund to balance the budget, Republicans like Rep. Pam Myhra pushed forward with expanding the K-12 funding shift. Schools are now owed a whopping $2.2 billion and alarmingly, for the first time, there is no budgetary plan to pay it back. As a result, school districts like Burnsville-Eagan-Savage will be forced into short-term borrowing in order to meet the needs of students, according to a survey conducted by the Association of Metropolitan School Districts (AMSD). Independent School District 191 is just one of many metro area school districts having to resort to borrowing. This means resources that could have been spent in the classroom will be used to pay off loans. The Burnsville-Eagan-Savage school district isn’t alone. Of those surveyed, AMSD found that over 60 percent of schools indicated they will need to borrow. Minnesota’s future success is reliant on the opportunities afforded to our next generation today. I urge Rep. Myhra and my other Republican colleagues to make funding

our schools a top priority in the upcoming legislative session. We must put an end to this method of budgeting that simply passes the buck, compromising our economic future and squandering our most basic priority – the education of our children. While we may have different perspectives on education policy, I think we can all agree that asking our students to foot the bill for our budgetary failings is neither sound education policy nor is it an efficient approach to balancing our budget.

GUEST COMMENTARY

You can help ensure every child has a memorable Christmas Like many Minnesotans, I am a proud and grateful grandparent. Whether I am hunting and fishing with my grandkids or playing games and helping them with homework when Vicky and I visit, we cherish the memories with all four family blessings. It seems like just yesterday when they, nestled on my lap, were bursting with unbridled excitement and enthusiasm on Christmas to tear off the gift wrapping and unveil the surprises that awaited them. But in no time at all, the annual opening of Legos, Tonka trucks, and Barbie Dolls has given way to the sights and sounds of the latest electronic gadgets. Throughout our lives, most of us have captured the memorable vision of children still in their pajamas sprinting down the stairway to the Christmas tree to discover what giftwrapped surprises awaited. Every child should be able to experience that memorable joy. In our household, the Christmas season provides an opportunity to reflect on our many blessings and celebrate what is most important to us: faith, family, friends and the freedoms we enjoy. The holidays also give us an opportunity to reflect on our less fortunate neighbors and consider ways we can help ease their burdens. By now most – if not all – of us have been touched in some way by the economic challenges facing our nation. Across the country,

unemployment has been too high for too long and Minnesotans are not immune to the downturn. The debate on how this happened and, more importantly, what to do to help our economy so job creators can do what they do best – create jobs – can be saved for another day. What cannot be ignored are the many Minnesota families who are trying to figure out how they can purchase gas and groceries while still making their monthly mortgage payments – let alone find a special gift for their child. As Christmas approaches, I ask that you join me in easing their minds. Founded in 1947, Toys for Tots began when Major Bill Hendricks and a group of Marine Reservists in California collected and distributed more than 5,000 toys to needy children. Last year, Marines distributed more than 16.7 million toys to nearly 7.2 million children

through the program. Many of the gifts Toys for Tots provides, such as books, games, and sports equipment, make a significant contribution to the educational, social and recreational development of these children. If you would like to join me in supporting the Toys for Tots effort, please bring your unwrapped toys to one of numerous drop-off sites in the 2nd district. (Staff Sergeant Michael Rice reports the Twin Cities warehouse in Eagan could use more toys, especially for boys and girls, ages 14-17). To find a Toys for Tots site near you in Scott, Carver and Dakota counties, visit minneapolismn.toysfortots.org As a 25-year veteran of the Marine Corps, I have a fondness for the Toys for Tots initiative. As a grandpa, I do, too. Please join me and Vicky this Christmas season in doing what we can to help ensure a special Christmas morning for every child in Minnesota.

Businesses can join Jeans Day for Charity Make casual Friday a lot more purposeful with Southwest Newspapers’ Jeans Day for Charity. Southwest Newspapers invites companies and businesses in the southwest metro to participate in the monthly fundraising effort, aimed at supporting local nonprofits and boosting company morale. “The purpose of Jeans Day for Charity is to bring the business community together a little more by creating an easy way to support local charities, especially at this time when people have cut back their giving,” said Southwest Newspapers Advertising Director Jennifer Sorenson. Participating businesses allow employees to wear jeans to work the last

Friday of each month. Employees pay $1, which is donated to the designated charity of the month. Since starting the program in September 2010, Southwest Newspapers has collected $4,270 for area charities, including the CarverScott Humane Society, Feed My Starving Children, ALS Association and Safe Haven in Prior Lake. The December charity is Loaves and Fishes. Eighteen area companies and businesses participate in Jeans Day for Charity, including St. Francis Regional Medical Center in Shakopee and Ridgeview Medical Center in Waconia.

I have buck fever bad. The clouds are thick and heavy and the wind is cutting and cold. Ah yes, it must be autumn in the upper Midwest. For the past few weeks I have been out in search of whitetailed deer. Not just any old deer; No, I am in search of the bucks. Yes, you know the big boys with huge antlers and swollen and puffy necks. It has been very interesting spending so much time with the big boys of the woods. Each morning I head out before daybreak – dressed in my camouflage, heavy boots, gloves, hat, oh and let’s not forget my camera gear. Sometimes I feel like I can’t go anywhere without a big lens and a camera anymore. The weather has shifted to cold mornings with landscapecovered frost. At first I couldn’t find any buck scrapes. Scrapes are small patches of ground that the males scrape clean with their front feet, then they leave a scent by urinating or defecating. They also place scent on the bare earth from their foot glands called the interdigital glands. About 80 to 90 percent of these scrapes have an overhanging tree branch just above the height of the bucks head. The bucks hook and twist their antlers on the hanging branch. They also sniff and lick the branch. Presumably this places a scent mark on the hanging branch.

PHOTO BY STAN TEKIELA

A male white-tailed deer is on the move as the rutting season commences. I have stopped and sniffed countless licking sticks, which they are often called, and I don’t smell anything. Obviously I am not equipped to detect the odor. It is estimated that one breeding buck will make 20 to 30 scrapes in any given area. Some are small and not well maintained while others are meticulously kept free of any fallen leaves and are visited about three to four times a day to freshen up the scent. The idea behind these scrapes is to attract females, called does, into the general area where the male can find them for breeding. Larger more dominant bucks will often scrape across the top of smaller less dominate bucks scrapes, thus taking over the established scrape with their own scent. It is thought that some bucks will produce a string of scrapes across the landscape as they visit each one – similar to what a trapper might do

with a trapline. Most would agree that scrapes are not related to a buck’s territory nor do they mark the limits of a territory. However most would agree that a scrape serves two purposes. First they attract breeding females while intimidating rival males. During the past couple of weeks, I have seen only a few scattered scrapes during my morning travels through the woods. Then all of a sudden, yesterday morning there were dozens of scrapes across the woodland landscape. This marks a huge change in the bucks’ behavior. Up until now the bucks that I would run into would spend much of their time feeding and milling about. Suddenly, like someone flipped a switch, the bucks are not spending as much time eating as they are chasing about with their heads lowered looking for females and making scrapes. So the abundance of

scrapes is a clear and obvious sign that the rut of 2011 is up and running. Of course this is the moment I am looking for. As a wildlife photographer, the time when the males are concentrating on females is the time that I can take advantage, and get close enough to produce some great images. Now the only challenge I have is keeping up with the rutting males. They often put on many miles trotting around the woods in search of females in estrus. Of course, I am at a distinct disadvantage because they have four legs and they are not carrying 40 pounds of camera gear. Wish me luck. Until next time...

PET OF THE WEEK Animal control found me in rural Scott County and no one came for me. I’m a happy, very friendly, easy going 2 year old. They think I’m a great dane/ hound mix, but I only weigh 68 pounds. I’m house broken, do okay in the car and on a leash. I like kids and dogs but haven’t met cats. While I’m waiting to be adopted, it would be nice if there was a foster home willing to help me learn not to jump up and surf counters. Is that Clifford you? The above abandoned pet is being housed by the Carver-Scott Humane Society and is available for adoption. Pets have been checked by a vet, wormed, given updated shots, have a micro ID, checked for friendly dispositions and spayed or neutered if they are adults. The donation fee for a cat starts at $165+ and fees for a dog start at $195+. If you can give a pet a home, call the humane society at (952) 368-3553.

SPIRITUAL REFLECTIONS

Elusive dignity may be found in humility The first chapter of the Gospel of Luke records a meeting between Mary, the mother of Jesus, and an angel, a messenger from God. Until the Angel came to her, Mary was not a significant biblical character. She was unknown. The angel tells Mary that she will conceive and give birth to the Messiah, the one who will reign on David’s throne. Shaken to her sandals, Mary basically says, “How does that work? I’m a virgin.” Gabriel, the angel, informs her that the Holy Spirit will get it done, “For nothing is impossible with God.” Mary’s world was

GIANNA  continued from page 1

“I mostly sing in my spare time,” says Gianna, who takes piano and voice lessons but is on a hiatus due to her “A Christmas Carol” commitment. “I sing in the bathroom, I sing anywhere. I sing doing my homework … I can’t stop singing.” Gianna and her friends can often be found putting on productions – some improvised and others with Gianna pulling triple duty as director, actress and playwright. Yet Gianna getting cast in “A Christmas Carol” was a surprise for the BonelloFreunds, who hadn’t planned for her acting career to take off so suddenly. While Gianna had performed in school shows, large-scale productions seemed far off for the novice. “For someone with no experience to get a role at the Guthrie, it’s a really big deal,” Liz says. “This is just amazing.” In August one of Gianna’s soccer teammates, who has also acted in Guthrie shows, encouraged her to try out in the fall for the theater’s production of the Tennessee Williams’ legendary “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.” Gianna was not cast in that show, but the consolation letter she received encouraged her to try out for “A Christmas Carol.” She returned to the Guthrie in late fall for her first “A Christmas Carol” audition, where she had to sing the somewhat outdated Christmas tune “Good King Wenceslas.” “I thought I wasn’t going to

make it because I messed up,” Gianna says, remembering how she forgot the unfamiliar song’s tune. Song flub aside, Gianna managed to get a callback. For her second audition, the unflappable actress’ nerves were tested when she had to read lines with professional Guthrie actors in front of lauded director Joe Dowling. “I really didn’t know who I was reading the lines with,” Gianna says. “I completely forgot that Joe Dowling was in the audience. I felt natural … I was nervous but then I got on stage and stopped shaking.” Someone from the Guthrie called the Bonello-Freund household a few days later to let them know that Gianna would be a member of the children’s ensemble. Her reaction was in signature Gianna fashion. “I think you could’ve heard me a mile way,” Gianna laughs. “I freaked out. I screamed. I was so shocked.” And then the work began.

DRAMATIC COMMITMENT “You don’t really know that it’s a really big commitment until you do it,” Gianna says of her professional-stage debut. The Bonello-Freund family soon found out just how big this “really big commitment” would be. Gianna was often on call for the production, meaning she may have to get to the Guthrie on a moment’s notice during the rehearsal period. The demands on Gianna’s time have rippled through to the rest of the family. Liz has had to take time off from

of her spoken song is this truth: God reverses things. Those who are proud are humbled, the humble are lifted. “He has brought down rulers from their thrones but has lifted up the humble. He has filled the hungry with good things but has sent the rich away empty.” Luke 1: 52 and 53. That’s what Jesus does in the world. Everything is upside down in his Kingdom. The proud are humbled. The humble are lifted up. Losers become winners and winners are shocked at the scoreboard. I am impressed with the persistence of the biblical

theme of humility. It shows up again in the book of Philippians, chapter 2. There the “Son of God,” the one born to Mary, “…made himself nothing … he humbled himself….” If we want to follow Jesus, humility is not optional and definitely not chic. It is crucial to our following. You probably already know that trying to be humble or act humble is a bad way to become humble. It is better to choose the WAY of humility. True humility comes from Christ. Having our feet firmly planted in the knowledge of our forgiveness in Him sets us free from

her job at the Savage Library in order to chauffeur and accompany Gianna. “We’ve had to juggle our schedules,” Liz says, noting that she and her husband, as well as Gianna’s grandmother, have alternated driving Gianna to and from the Guthrie. For tech week, the span of rehearsals and previews between Nov. 15 and Nov. 23, Gianna was regularly pulling 12-hour work days. Not only did she have to halt voice and piano lessons, Gianna has had to miss chunks of the school day. “She’s pretty much [at the Guthrie] for a 10-hour day,” Liz says. “The teachers have been really great about giving her stuff early.” Gianna pulls a full sixthgrade course load, including homework, despite often being at St. John’s for only two or three classes a day – except for Mondays, where there are no shows scheduled and Gianna can attend the full day of school – and performing in as many as nine or 10 shows weekly. Gianna’s spare time, once filled with singing and dancing, are now filled with homework and sleep. “It’s a lot of fun but it’s also a lot of work too, but I love it,” Gianna says of “A Christmas Carol.” Missing out on school has meant no more gym class – Gianna’s favorite part of the day – no performing in the St. John’s fall pageant and a lot less time to be with her friends. She’s not too heartbroken about the tradeoff. “I think the Guthrie’s more

fun than school,” she says. “A Christmas Carol” opened on Nov. 23 and will run through Dec. 30, cutting right into Gianna’s winter vacation. She says that normally she’d spend that time having a sleepover with her cousin and playing in the snow, but this year she’ll be on stage or backstage, playing with her friends in the ensemble and learning how to knit from her co-stars. “I’m kind of disappointed that I don’t get to do that stuff, but it’s also kind of fun to do Christmas shows over Christmas break,” she says.

pretense. In Christ we are right with God. In Christ we are children of God. The status we receive from Christ enables us to be in the world without regard for status. With our feet planted in Christ we can practice the way of humility. Have you volunteered to clean your church? Have you been writing letters to anyone in prison? Be part of the great reversal. Send Christmas cards to somebody in jail. Tell them you wish them well and are praying for their safety and well-being. If you have to, give your new Audi to someone whose car is on its last tire

and go buy a used Ford Escort. That is not as ridiculous as it sounds. Or, to whom do you need to apologize? Sincere apologies help us find the road to humility. However we practice humility, it may be that in doing so we will find the dignity that has eluded us for so long. (Rev. Arlan Koppendrayer is interim pastor at Bridgewood Church in Savage and can be contacted at arlan@ bridgewood.org.

FIRE  continued from page 1

McColl said it is unknown if Davidson died from thermal injuries or from smoke asphyxiation prior to the burns, or even if the man had died before the fire. Authorities are awaiting the coroner’s report before listing an official cause of death. Burnsville Fire Department

was called for mutual aid and the Savage Fire Department is working with the State Fire Marshall to determine the cause of the fire. McColl said that a cigarette may have caused the fire, but that it’s too early to be certain. This is the third fire-related fatality in Savage in the last 10 years, according to McColl. “At this time, it appears all three were preventable. It’s three too many,” said McColl.

CURTAIN CALL Gianna’s classmates have been really supportive, with a lot of them coming to see her perform – the seventh-graders from her school attended a performance on Tuesday – and even giving her flowers and other presents. Her parents, likewise, have given her positive feedback on the show. “It’s great,” says Liz, who has seen the show three times and has tickets for a fourth show. “Everybody’s very talented and it’s funny.” Gianna, who admires Taylor Swift, Adele and Emma Watson, hopes this is just the beginning of her career. Though her mom wants her to pursue singing – “You’re either born with it or you’re not,” Liz says – Gianna has something different in mind. “My main goal is to get called back [at the Guthrie] next year,” she says. “I hope to do more shows at other theaters.”

Cocoa

& Fig:

Offering seasonal goodies, with a twist BY LEAH SHAFFER lshaffer@swpub.com

Cocoa & Fig

T

he holidays are a true holiday from a busy season of baking at Cocoa & Fig. “This is fun for us,” said co-owner Laurie Pyle. The bakery, which has a production kitchen in Shakopee, is at its busiest in the summer and fall when catering weddings. The holidays are a fun time to try to new things, Pyle said. Her co-owner, Joe Lin, said Cocoa & Fig embraces the holiday season. “It’s good busy and it’s fun busy,” he said. “It’s a chance for us to switch gears and do something different.” If you’re the type who’s ever yawned at the usual offering of sugar cookies and gingerbread, Cocoa & Fig’s holiday treats might be the menu to check out. The bakery specializes in “just making things a little bit more gourmet than maybe grandma made them but still have some flavors that are reminiscent of what you had when you were a kid,” Pyle said. For example, salted caramel is the popular treat this season. “We are doing our salted caramel nut tarts which is sort of a kicked up version of a pecan pie,” Pyle said. Cocoa & Fig’s head pastry chef is allergic to pecans. “So maybe selfishly, I wanted something that didn’t have pecans,” she added. Another classic with a twist: chewy, chocolate ginger cookies. Cocoa & Fig’s recipe adds

Treats to try: Apple Galette, Salted Caramel Nut Tart, Chewy Chocolate Ginger, Pumpkin Macarons The retail shop is located at Gaviidae Common, 651 Nicollet Mall, Minneapolis Retail shop: (612) 333-1485 Shakopee production kitchen: (952) 540-4300 Website: cocoaandfig.com

Valrhona cocoa powder and 70 percent chocolate chunks with crystallized ginger. Definitely not your grandma’s gingerbread man. As much as customers may want something new, they also want seasonal classics with pumpkin and chocolate. Clients want something “approachable and comforting,” Lin noted. “They want it tweaked a little bit.” Those looking for major comfort food should try the bakery’s apple galette, pumpkin cheesecake and Russian tea cakes. “Our cake lollipops have been a huge hit,” Pyle said. Seasonal cake lollipop flavors include pumpkin and peppermint. Then, there’s the macarons, a small sandwich cookie made from almond powder and egg whites. Flavors include pumpkin, caramel apple, salted caramel and pistachio. “It’s like taking the classic American dessert and putting it in a small French cookie,” said Lin about the caramel apple macarons.

Cocoa & Fig’s Cranberry White Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies Yields: approximately 2 dozen 2 sticks butter, softened 1 cup sugar 1 cup brown sugar 2 eggs 2 tsp. vanilla extract 2 cups all-purpose flour 1 tsp. baking soda 1 tsp. salt 2 tsp. cinnamon 3 cups oats 2/3 cup dried cranberries 2/3 cup white chocolate

Cocoa & Fig owner Laurie Pyle puts together pumpkin macarons at the Shakopee production facility.

Beat butter, white sugar and brown sugar together until light and fluff y. Add eggs and vanilla, scraping down the bowl after each addition. Sift dry ingredients and slowly add to the mixture. Add oats and mix just until combined. Mix in cranberries and white chocolate by hand. Refrigerate dough for 1-2 hours before scooping. Above – A dollop of caramel fits into the center of a pumpkin macaron.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Scoop cookies into rounds using a small ice cream scoop – dough should be about walnut size rounds. Place cookies about 2 inches apart on a parchment lined cookie sheet. Flatten cookies slightly with the palm of your hand.

At left – Cupcakes are primed for a layer of chocolate, nuts and caramel. Seasonal cupcakes offerings from Cocoa & Fig include pumpkin cupcakes with cream cheese icing, caramel apple cupcakes with caramel icing and gingerbread cupcakes with creamy chevre icing.

Bake for 8-10 minutes in preheated oven. Allow cookies to cool completely before enjoying!

District 191’s new Teaching and Learning Team, headed by Assistant Superintendent Chris Lindholm and started this fall, gave a report to the School Board at its Dec. 1 meeting showing the progress that has been made in the fi rst 100 days. The team often spoke in general terms, occasionally offering specific ideas about how they wanted to increase student achievement. Lindholm said the team developed four questions that will guide their work: What do we want our students to know, understand and do? How will we know they are learning? How will we respond when they don’t learn? How will we respond when they do learn? To ascertain the answers to those questions, the team is focusing on four main areas: curriculum, professional devel-

opment, assessment and utilizing technology. Here are some highlights from the report: C u r r ic u lu m : T he tea m wants to develop a system of managing and implementing curricula. One aspect of that would be developing an online curriculum library, or database, that teachers and parents could access at any time and any place. The database would provide “comprehensive, coherent and aligned curricula district-wide.” The team is also looking at fi nding ways to improve the English as a Second Language programs. Professional development: The team hopes to coordinate job-embedded and sustained district-wide professional development. They also want to facilitate the implementation of collaborative teams that would support the role of interventionists and enrichment specialists across the district. Assessment: The team will facilitate the development and

implementation of assessment processes and protocols, such as establishing ways to guide the district’s transition to the new MCA-III math test and the new test vendor for grades 3 through 8. They also want to manage and migrate assessment data into a central student data repository and assist groups with ways to enter and access program-specific data. T e c h n olo g y : T he t e a m wants to make sure all students are proficient in “Web 2.0” by the time they graduate. Among the ways they plan to do that is by introducing Google Apps into the classroom and by providing online classes, both fully online and integrated, through the popular onlineclass Web site Moodle.

average to qualify to take an AP class. Students have the option to speak with their school counselor to determine if the academic rigor offered in AP is a good choice for them. If students are motivated, our teachers are ready to guide them through an AP class and help students learn more about his or her capabilities. AP classes help prepare students for college Students who take AP courses are able to stretch their minds in new ways that help them gain the critical thinking and study skills needed at college. In addition, college admission counselors are looking to see if students have taken the most challenging courses available to them. They are often times looking beyond a student’s grade-point average and want to know that students are willing to take on the extra rigor that an AP class provides. According to the College Board, students who take AP classes and do not earn a three on the course-end test but score at least a one or two on AP exams, statistically perform better on standardized tests and college coursework. The College Board also cites a 2008 study that found AP students had better four-year graduation rates than those who did not take AP courses. Students can save money Students with an AP score of three or higher can earn course credit for college, depending on the institution’s policy. Some of our students earn enough credits to begin their post-secondary course work as a sophomore.

districts in the state and 367 in the nation to be honored by the College Board for AP programming. This distinction comes after simultaneously increasing access to AP course work while increasing the percentage of students earning scores of three or higher on AP exams by 17 percent in the last year. There are several PLHS AP course options from which to choose AP courses offer students the chance to study a subject in greater depth. Freshman have the option to choose AP Human Geography and sophomores can take AP World History. For juniors, the options expand to Language and Composition, Calculus, Statistics, Environmental Science and U.S. History. Finally, for seniors, AP options include Literature and Composition, Calculus, Statistics, Environmental Science, American Government and Economics. AP classes can be confidence builders Participating in an AP class can give students a great deal of confidence and sense of accomplishment. Students who have completed an AP class know they have challenged themselves and quite often surprise themselves with the level of academic rigor in which they are able to succeed. AP courses are not right for everyone but students ready for a challenge have the option to learn from our very skilled, dedicated and inspiring teachers at PLHS. While student grades are always an important measure of academic success, sometimes pushing yourself outside of your comfort zone can yield even greater accomplishments.

The Prior Lake girls basketball team rebounded in a big way from its season-opening loss. With senior Alyssa Eschrich back in the lineup, the Lakers controlled the boards and had eight players in the scoring column in a 56-50 upset at No. 7-ranked White Bear Lake Dec. 2. The Lakers also did their job at the charity stripe, making 67 percent (21 for 31), which was big i mprovement f r om c onver t i n g only 46 percent (6 of 13) in a 59-43 loss at No. 4 Minnetonka Nov. 29. “We don’t have a person who can create on her own or take over a game,” said Lakers coach Mike Gidley. “We need to screen for each other and run good offensive sets. We need to make our free throws, rebound the ball and PHOTO BY TOM SCHARDIN play good defense. Prior Lake junior “If we do all of Tiffaney Flaata had 13 those things, we’ll points, six rebounds be alright,” added and four steals in the Gidley. Lakers’ 56-50 win at Eschrich missed No. 7 White Bear Lake the opener with an Dec. 2. injury and the Lakers missed her presence inside. The 6-foot-2-inch forward, who will play will Division II next year at St. Cloud State University, finished with 11 rebounds (10 defensive) against White Bear Lake, while scoring five points. Junior center Tiffaney Flaata led the Lakers with 13 points, grabbing six boards and getting four steals. She also hit 7 of 10 free throws. Senior guard Molly Simpkins fi nished with 12 points, grabbing nine boards, while junior guard Deanna Busse had 11 points, hitting three three-pointers. Senior Lauren Busse and ninth-grader Shaye Barton each had six points. Barton was 4 of 6 from the charity stripe and also led the way in assists with three. White Bear Lake owns a 56-8 record over the last two seasons, including a runner-up fi nish in the Class 4A state tourney in 2010 and fi nishing fourth last year. The Bears have won the last three Section 4AAAA titles. So this is a huge win for a young Lakers team trying to establish itself among the elite squads.

Heating up the ice No. 9 Blaze earns split against ranked opponents BY TOM SCHARDIN tschardin@swpub.com

The Burnsville boys hockey team exploded offensively in the fi nal moments of the third period Dec. 3 to earn its fi rst win. The No. 9-ranked Blaze scored three goals in the fi nal 3:37 of the game en route to a 5-2 home win over No. 10 Hill-Murray. Senior Cory Chapman broke a 2-2 tie with his third goal of the year, scoring unassisted at the 13:23 mark of the third period. He was trying to center the puck from corner, but it bounced off a Pioneers’ stick and into the upper corner of the net to give the Blaze its fi rst lead of the game. Burnsville added two more goals in the final 1:18. Senior Jake Senta tallied, followed by a power-play goal from senior Nick Bohn with 23 seconds left in regulation. Burnsville went into the game on the heels of a 7-3 loss at No. 3 Minnetonka Dec. 1. The Blaze led 2-0 in that game, before allowing the Skippers to tally six straight

goals. Meanwhile, Hill-Murray and the Blaze have played an early season game the last four years. The Blaze has won the last two meetings, while the Pioneers won the fi rst two. Burnsville scored two goals in the second period. Senior Hunter Anderson knotted the game at 1-1 with a power-play goal at the 10:15 mark. S o p h o m o r e T y l e r S h e e hy scored his first-career varsity goal with 2:03 left in the period. He blasted a shot from the blue line that got past the Hill-Murray goalie.

Blaze and was rock solid fi nishing with 27 saves. Bohn, Sheehy, Senta and senior Jake Maxson each had one assist. I n t he loss to Mi nnetonka, the Blaze got off to a flying start scoring 37 seconds into the game and leading 2-0 nine minutes into action. But that’s where the fun ended. Minnetonka took over from there. The Skippers tied the game at 2-2 after one period and scored two goals in the fi rst 40 seconds of the second period en route to the win. Burnsville struggled to keep Minnetonka away from junior goalie Nic Anderson in the fi nal two periods. Making his firstcareer start, he faced 34 shots, making 27 saves. The Blaze had just 14 shots on goal. Chapman scored two goals for the Blaze, while junior Daniel Ames scored one, which was on the power play to give Burnsville a 2-0 lead.

The Burnsville boys basketball team had a daunting task in its season opener Dec. 6. Stopping No. 1-ranked Hopkins, the defending Class 4A state champs. The Royals welcomed many of the young Blaze players to life at the varsity level, rolling to a 48-point road win, 94-46. Nobody expected the Blaze to knock the perennial state power, not with all the new faces in Burnsville’s lineup this season. Senior center Chase Roullier is the only starter back for the Blaze, while a few other players got only a handful of varsity minutes last year. Meanwhile, Hopkins has won the last three Class 4A state titles and has a total of six crowns since 2002. Second-year Blaze coach Matt Eppen said before the season the best way for a young team to measure itself is against top-level competition. The Blaze is next game is Tuesday, Dec. 13 at home versus No. 5 Eden Prairie, last year’s state runner-up. “The important thing is we keep getting better,” said Eppen, whose team won 12 games last year in his fi rst season at the helm. Hopkins’ superior athleticism forced the Blaze into numerous fi rst-half turnovers. Burnsville turned the ball over on its fi rst three possessions of the game. The Blaze hung around a little bit, trailing 25-17 at one point. But Hopkins closed the fi rst half in dominant fashion, holding a 6 4 -25 lead at the break. Burnsville didn’t have any one in double fi gures. Junior Adam Saba and sophomore Tommy Peerboom led the Blaze with nine points apiece. Senior Ryan Swanson finished with eight points, while senior AJ Coleman chipped in six points and sophomore Ben Nienow had four. Roullier and junior Corey Ma xon each f i nished wit h three points, while senior Bryan Heard and ninth-grader Brett Shepley each scored two points.

Last year, Robrock fi nished second in the 100-yard backstroke at the Class AA state meet and was tied for seventh in the 50 freestyle. Robrock set the school record in the 100 back last year at state (50.20 seconds) and tied the school mark in the 50 freestyle (21.54). In his final season, he’ll try to become only second Prior Lake swimmer to

win a state title. Chris Baker won the 50 freestyle and 100 breaststroke in 1984. “Kyle is set up fairly well to compete at the top of the backstroke,” said Lakers coach Justin Haycraft. “It would be fun to have a state champion in that event. He has worked really hard in the offseason.” Robrock is not t he on ly Laker back with state experience. Junior Alex Jenness and eighth-grader Marshall Heskin also competed at state. Jenness was 14th in the 100 backstroke and 24th in the 200 individual medley. Heskin, Jenness and Robrock were three-fourths of the 200 medley relay team that fi nished 10th.

The Prior Lake wrestling team faced some stiff competition to start the season. The No. 11-ranked Lakers are off to a 1-3 start with all three defeats to ranked teams – versus No. 1 Apple Valley (52-6) in a South Suburban Conference dual Dec. 2 and to No. 3 Hastings (38-24) and No. 5 Coon Rapids (35-24) in the Hastings Duals Dec. 3. Prior Lake’s one win at the dual invite was against Stillwater (40-24). The Lakers, coming off the program’s best-ever fi nish at state last year (third with a

24-11 record), has a difficult December schedule. Coach Joe Block acknowledged before the season that his team’s record will likely be deceiving heading into the New Year. Prior Lake lost four state qualifiers from a year ago, two of whom finished in the top-six on the Lakers’ all-time wins list. So it may take the Lakers some time to get its lineup set and some of their younger wrestlers some experience. At the dual invite, junior Tanner Johnshoy won al l three of his matches by fall at 113 pounds. He’s ranked No. 1 in the state at 106.

Struggles on ice Blaze, Lakers a combined 0-5-2 in SSC BY TOM SCHARDIN tschardin@swpub.com

The Burnsville and Prior Lake girls hockey teams are scheduled to meet Tuesday, Dec. 20 in a South Suburban Conference. Will either team have a conference win before that match up at Dakotah Ice Arena in Prior Lake? The Blaze has struggled to a 0-6-1 start (0-2-1 in the conference), while the Lakers are 1-6-1 (0-3-1 in league play). Both teams endured 4-2 losses at home Dec. 6. The Blaze fell to Lakeville South, while the Lakers lost to Eagan. Burnsville went into the game on the heels of a 2-2 tie at Eagan Dec. 3, while the Lakers suffered a 2-1 loss at Bloomington Jefferson Dec. 2. Burnsville was 12-14 overall last year, which was the program’s fi rst-ever losing season. The Blaze will need to make a big turnaround to avoid a second straight season below the .500 mark. Me a nwh i le, t he L a ker s started the season 0-9 last year under then-coach Jaime Grossman, who lasted just one season with the program, finishing with a 9-18 overall mark. This year’s start under fi rstyear coach Todd Johnson has also been a struggle, especially offensively. The Lakers have scored just 10 goals in eight games and four of those came in the Lakers’ only win, 4-0 over Holy Family Nov. 26. Burnsville’s offense has not faired much better. The Blaze has just nine goals in seven games. In the loss to Lakeville South, Burnsville nearly came all the way back from a 3-0 deficit. Sophomore Lindsey Coleman scored at the 9:26 mark of the third period to cut the Cougars’ lead to 3-2. But the Blaze couldn’t get the equalizer. Lakeville South scored an empty-net goal with 18 seconds left to play. Senior Alexa Pearson had

The Burnsville wrestling team was hoping to pull out a victory Dec. 2 in the coaching debut of Sam Sand. And after nine weights, the Blaze looked poised to do so. But Bloomington Kennedy won the fi nal five weights, four by fall, for a 48-26 road victory in a South Suburban Conference dual. The Blaze won five matches, including two by fall. Sophomore Jack O’Brien earned a pin at 113 pounds and junior Lucas Grossoehme earned a fall at 160, which gave the Blaze a 26-21 lead. But that’s where Kennedy took over. Senior Dmytro Hutsal nearly won at 182 pounds for the Blaze, losing a hardfought 1- 0 decision, which would have put Burnsville up 29-27. The Blaze jumped out to a 20-12 lead, getting a win by technical fall (19-4) from junior Alonso Quintana at 138 pounds. Ni nt h-g rader Michael Ramirez opened the dual with a 13-3 major decision at 106 pounds for the Blaze. Senior Andy Underhill, ranked No. 4 in the state at 126 pounds, won by technical fall (18-2) at that

The 2011-12 boys’ basketball season is under way with the fi rst games of the season played within the last week. The girls have been playing for a week longer. The 2012 state tournaments are a little more than three months away. At both tournaments, the Minnesota State High School League will be celebrating the 100th state basketball tournament, marking the fi rst boys’ event in 1913. The centennial milestone will be commemorated many ways. There will be recognition of players, coaches, games, shots, tournaments and teams throughout the fi rst 100 years. History will be paramount and the public is invited to assist with contributions of mementos and memorabilia that will be displayed at both state tournaments. An earlier appeal resulted in a few contributions already. An extensive scrapbook has been shared. A championship trophy and photograph of a girls’ team from the ’20s is in League possession. Ticket stubs and uniform patches have also been contributed. Anything and everything is being solicited. Items such as tournament programs, books about the tournament, newspaper clippings, balls and uniforms, trophies, photographs — anything related to either state tournament is needed to fi ll display cases for fans to enjoy while at Target Center for the 2012 state tournaments. League staff will take great care in securing any contributed item and will make sure it is returned in the same condition in which it was received. The League can arrange for pickup or delivery of items if required. Potential contributors may inquire by sending an e-mail to hoops100@mshsl.org or by leaving a message in the general mailbox at 763-560-2262.

Two track relays can now qualify for state The Minnesota State High School League Board of Directors recently approved a proposal from the Track and Field Advisory Committee that will allow two relays from each of the sections to automatically qualify for the state meet. That will be effective this spring. In the past, only one relay qualified, while second-place fi nishers or higher had to make the state standard to earn a berth. The top-two fi nishes individual events will also qualify for state, which unchanged. Last spring, the Prior Lake girls team qualified three relays for the Class AA state meet, the 4 x 200, 400 and 800, while the Prior Lake boys team qualified two, the 4 x 400 and 800.

DNR offers snowmobile safety tips With another snowmobile season fast approaching, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) is encouraging snowmobilers to get the season off to a smooth, safe start. “I want people to take advantage of the snowmobiling opportunities that exist in Minnesota, so now is the time to prepare sleds and learn how to avoid the possible dangers that are present when snowmobiling,” said Capt. Mike Hammer, DNR Enforcement Education Program coordinator. Last season there were 13 snowmobile related fatalities and numerous injuries in Minnesota. Hammer believes all these incidents were preventable. For a copy of the DNR’s 2011-2012 Minnesota Snowmobile Safety Laws, Rules, and Regulations handbook, and for safety training information, contact the DNR Information Center at (651) 296-6157 or toll free (888) 646-6367 or email info.dnr@ state.mn.us. To legally ride a snowmobile, residents born after Dec. 31, 1976, need a valid snowmobile safety certificate in their possession, or a snowmobile safety certificate indicator on their driver’s license or on their Minnesota ID card.

Others expected to contribute are senior Zach Kleist and junior Josiah Torvik. “(Anderson) looks to lead the sprints,” said Haycraft. “He came back taller and quite a bit stronger and should be in the low 23s to the 22s fairly early in the season. “The potential is there to have an outstanding season,” added Haycraft. “We need to fi ll out the depth on the team a bit and are looking to the ninth-graders and sophomores to round out the team.” Haycraft said the Lakers’ goal is to be in the top four in the South Suburban Conference. Prior Lake was 5-4 in conference duals last year (6-4 overall). “The other teams in the conference are still pretty strong and will be difficult

Rough start on the court Blaze opens with 30-point loss BY TOM SCHARDIN tschardin@swpub.com

The Burnsville girls basketball team took it on the chin in its season opener Dec. 1. Eighth-ranked Wayzata hit six three-pointers in the fi rst half to build a 25-point lead en route to a 65-35 victory over the Blaze. Burnsville had no answer for Wayzata forwards Marissa Grossfeld and Kayla Timmerman, who fi nished with 18 and 16 points, respectively. The Blaze was led by senior guard Lateeka Thompson, who finished with 12 points. She was playing in her fi rst game since her sophomore year. She missed all of last year with a knee injury. Senior Jessica Ranke and sophomore Georgi Donchetz each finished with eight points, while sophomore Maddie Kempf had three points. It’s way too early to panic for the Blaze. This team should be able to improve on last year’s seven wins. But it will need to get more production inside if

The Prior Lake boys basketball team used its size and the ball-handling skills of its talented sophomore point guard to win its season opener Dec. 6. Ju n i o r c e nt e r C a r s o n Shanks led the Lakers with a career-high 18 points, while guard Jon Sobaski controlled the entire tempo of the game in the Lakers’ 59-52 home win over Henry Sibley. Although Henry Sibley is off to 0-2 start this year and won just six games last year, the Warriors’ program made three straight appearances in the Class 4A state tournament from 2008-2010 and had a combined 78-16 record in that span. Meanwhile, the Lakers, under second-year coach Alex Focke, have just nine wins the last two years, but there’s plenty of hope the team can perhaps double that total this winter, along with challenging for the Section 2AAAA title. The Lakers also climbed into the Class 4A state poll (ranked No. 10) for the first time since joining the largest class back in 2003. Beating Henry Sibley in the opener is a good start for the Lakers, but the competition is about to get much stiffer starting today (Saturday, Dec. 10) at the Breakdown Tip-off Classic in Minnetonka. Prior Lake is playing No. 3 Osseo. Prior Lake follows with back-to-back road games – at Waconia Dec. 13 and at No. 5 Eden Prairie, last year’s Class 4A state runner-up, Dec. 16. So t he L a kers wi l l get a chance to show just how improved they are over the last two years in the coming weeks. Sobaski missed 17 games last year with a broken wrist, but when he played he more than held his own in his first varsity season, averaging 9.5 points. In the win over Henry Sibley, Sobaski had a strong floor game, finishing with 10 points. His penetration also allowed the Lakers some easy baskets in transition and in their halfcourt sets. Senior Evan Kotchevar finished with 13 points, while senior Matt Dysthe had eight. The Lakers led 26-25 at the break and maintained singledigit advantage most of the second half.

The primary consideration in any divorce involving children should be their continued welfare and emotional well-being. Divorcing parents should bear in mind that there are two kinds of custody, physical and legal. “Physical custody” refers to where the children will live on a regular basis. “Joint” physical custody means that the children have regular contact with both parents. If one parent has the children the majority of the time, the other should get the right to regular parenting time. Having “legal” custody of the children means having the right to make decisions about their welfare (such as school selection, medical decisions, etc.). While 50/50 legal custody is preferred, sole legal custody is an option if problems exist (parental hostility, abuse, etc.).

Nov. 24 At 12:38 p.m., firefighters were called to the 9200 block of Creek Way to assist with an 86-year-old woman who had fallen in a driveway. One firefighter tended to patient care and canceled all other responding units. There were only minor injuries which were treated on the scene. No transport was required. At 5:47 p.m., firefighters were called to the 4000 block of 141st Street for a report of a 3-year-old choking and unable to breath. Upon arrival, Savage Police met with the firefighters outside the home and said that fire units could cancel as the child was OK. Nov. 30 At 9:34 p.m., firefighters were called to the 8300 block of 153rd Street for a report of an unresponsive 17-year-old female. Police and Allina medics were on the scene upon arrival. Firefighters were told the patient was breathing and that they could stand by and assist if requested. Firefighters stayed with the

family and were not needed for patient care. Dec. 1 At 1:49 p.m., firefighters were called to the 400 block of 141st Street for a reported smell of natural gas. Firefighters monitored the home, and there was a distinct odor, however it was not natural gas or any other combustible substance. Dec. 2 At 7:36 a.m., firefighters were called to the 14100 block of Highway 13 for a reported car fire in a parking lot with flames under the hood. An officer standing by the car said that she had extinguished the fire with a fire extinguisher. The fire was indeed out and all units were canceled. The driver reported that the oil light had come on, she stopped in the parking lot, opened the hood and removed the oil fill cap while the car was running. She began to pour oil into the engine area when some oil splashed onto the exhaust manifold and ignited. Two

spark plug wires had burnt, but there was no other obvious damage. At 10:41 a.m., firefighters were called to the 5300 block of 145th Street for a burning complaint. It turned out to be a homeowner illegally burning leaves and other debris. The man was told to stop and he extinguished the fire. Dec. 3 At 1:26 p.m., firefighters were called to the 4200 block of 141st Street for a report of gas in a mechanical room. Firefighters monitored the home and found no lower-explosive levels, but there was an odor of natural gas. CenterPoint Energy was requested. Dec. 4 At 12:31 p.m., firefighters were called to the 6700 block of 146th Street for a report of a fire alarm going off. The first firefighters to arrive determined steam from a shower caused the smoke detector to activate. Firefighters canceled both responding engines.

Perhaps the “man in black” wasn’t too fond of his new nickname. Or perhaps it’s just getting too cold out for the guy. The FBI said Monday that the masked gunman suspected in eight metro bank robberies in the last month and a half, including bank robberies in Prior Lake and Shakopee, is believed to have robbed a U.S. Bank branch in Hopkins on Monday night. This time, however, the suspect switched out his black hooded sweatshirt for a tan jacket. The suspect description in Monday’s robbery is similar to the eight others besides the

sported a black cotton jacket. In a press release, the FBI said they believe the suspect was the “man in black” serial robber. The man is now suspected in 10 metro-area bank robberies in the last month and a half. After Wednesday’s robbery, FBI Special Agent in Charge Donald Oswald, in conjunction with the Minnesota Bankers Association, announced they were of feri ng a rewa rd of $ 25,000 for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the “man in black.” Nearly identical descriptions were provided in the robberies of Prior Lake State Bank on Oct. 22, Paragon Bank in Shakopee on Nov. 1, First

National Bank of the Lakes in Richfield on Nov. 4, both the Richfield Bloomington Credit Union in Blooming ton and Premier Bank of Albertville on Nov. 9, TCF Bank in Arden Hills and Bremer Bank in Minneapolis on Nov. 22. In the Arden Hills robbery on Nov. 13, the man drove away in a cream-colored Mitsubishi Galant. In the Nov. 22 robbery of Bremer Bank in Minneapolis, the suspect drove off in a white 2005-2008 “crossoverstyle vehicle.” No getaway car has been identified in this week’s robberies. Anyone with information on the robberies is urged to contact the FBI at (612) 3763200.

cally, and she told police she had just been assaulted by Horn following an argument at her home. The complaint said the woman and Horn were k now n Jeffrey acquaintances Michael Horn and that Horn had been staying at her home for the past few days. The woman told police that Horn choked her with his arms, and police observed red markings on her neck that were con-

sistent with someone who had just been choked. She said that she and Horn had been drinking when the argument started. The woman said that Horn told her that he couldn’t leave her at the residence because she would call police and he would go to jail. He then allegedly told her that he needed to kill her, and that no one would find her body and he would steal her car and “be gone,” according to the complaint. Horn then allegedly attacked the woman and the two ended up on the floor. The woman said Horn was behind her choking her with his arms, and that she

couldn’t breathe or scream. She said that Horn eventually let her up and told her that he “needed to decide whether he was going to kill her or not,” according to the complaint. At that time, a friend of the woman arrived at the residence, and Horn walked away from her. Horn pleaded guilty in June to domestic assault by strangulation in Hennepin County District Court in relation to a separate incident. Horn has also been convicted of fi fth-degree assault twice; once in 1995 and once in 1996. Horn has an omnibus hearing scheduled for Dec. 29.

kitchen sink. Scott Robert Nelson and Lisa Werneke Nelson, now of Edina, have both been charged with felony theft after they allegedly paid a man to retrieve toilets, light fixtures and plumbing fi xtures, among other things, from their former home in Credit River Township that had been foreclosed upon. According to the complaint, police received a report in late June from a representative at Klein Bank saying that there was an unauthorized man in a foreclosed home in the 21300 block of Whisperer Way. An officer spoke to the man at the home who said the Nelsons had asked him to retrieve toilets and plumbing fixtures from the house. The officer found that two toilets had been removed and

were in a mudroom, five plumbing fi xtures had been removed and placed in a box in the garage and that several light fi xtures, fans and appliances were also missing. The representative from Klein Bank told police that the company sent a letter to the Nelsons advising them that they could not remove any existing structures or fixtures from the house, and that the company did not authorize anyone to take or remove any property from the residence. The man at the house said he was a handyman who was contacted by the Nelsons to do repair work at their Edina home, and that they instructed him to go to the Credit River Township home to retrieve the property. He said Scott Nelson gave him a garage opener for the house and told him where

to fi nd a key. The officer then spoke on the phone with Scott Nelson, who allegedly confi rmed that he directed the man to remove the property. According to the complaint, some of the property was at the Nelsons’ Edina home, some was in a storage unit and the rest had been sold to other people. According to the complaint, the total dollar amount of items removed and damaged from the property was $ 23,201.07. The replacement cost of the appliances was $15,390.65, the cost to replace light fi xtures was $ 4, 215.62 and t he cost to repair the plumbing was $3,594.80. Both Nelsons’ fi rst appearances in Scott County District Court are scheduled for Jan. 6, 2012.

got into an altercation with a woman the brother brought home. The fight started in the garage and continued to the upstairs kitchen, where Dahlman stabbed his brother, although he said it was in self defense. The blade went about 2 inches into the brother’s back. An intake nurse at Hennepin County Medical Center told police at the time that the brother’s injuries were not life-threatening, although doctors said the knife’s blade was half an inch from hitting his spleen. This is the second time Dahlman has been convicted of a felony in the last nine months. In March, Dahlman pleaded guilty to felony third-degree arson in Dakota County District Court. Dahlman received five years of probation for that offense. Alex Hall

T he pla nts ra nged from clones to full-grown plants, said Carver County sheriff’s Sgt. Mark Williams, who heads the task force. Agents arrested one man, Tien Van Pham, who was at the two-story home during the bust. Because it is an ongoing investigation, Williams said he couldn’t comment on what led detectives to the home. Pham, 46, of Shakopee was charged with felony possession of 10 kilos or more of marijuana. He made his fi rst appearance in court Dec. 5, and has another hearing scheduled Jan. 26. Pham lists the Berkshire Lane home as his address, but another individual is listed as the property owner on Scott County records. The house was purchased in 2 0 0 6 for $380,000. Pham has been accused of illegal drugs before. In 2007, he was charged with a felony controlled substance crime and fifth-degree sale of drugs in Washington-Stillwater District Court. Both counts were later dismissed. The task force was assisted by the Shakopee Police Department, Carver County Sheriff’s Office and Scott County Sheriff’s Office. This is not the first drug raid for Shakopee’s Southbridge area. Two homes were raided in 2009 for illegal drug activity as part of a metro-wide investigation. On Cambridge Road, police seized 160 marijuana plants from a house, and $68,000 was confiscated on Preston Lane. Shannon Fiecke

BRIEFS

Man sentenced for stabbing brother A 19 -yearold man from S ava g e c on victed of stabbing his brother in the back was sentenced to seven years of probation in Scott County District Brent Court late last Jacob-Lewis month. Brent Dahlman Jacob -L ewi s Dahlman pleaded guilty to second-degree assault with a deadly weapon in October. Dahlman also received a stayed 33-month prison sentence, meaning he will not have to serve that sentence in prison as long as he meets the conditions of his probation. According to the complaint, police were called to a home in the 4800 block of West 145th Street shortly after 3 a.m. on Aug. 14 for a report of a stabbing. When they arrived, they found the victim, Dahlman’s 24-year-old brother, hunched over on some stairs. Several persons in the house told the officers that there had been a fight and that the brother was stabbed by Dahlman, although no one had actually seen the stabbing. One of the officers went into the kitchen, where the fight occurred, and found a steak knife with a 5-inch inch blade that had blood on its tip, and also saw blood on the floor. In a statement to police, Dahlman admitted to fighting with his brother after he

REGIONALNEWS ELKO NEW MARKET

Proposed motor sports complex meeting draws crowd So many people showed up to learn more about a proposed motor sports complex in Elko New Market last week that cars parked on the grass outside Eagle View Elementary School. A $400 million motor sports facility has been proposed on roughly 400 acres at the northeast corner of County Road 2 and Interstate Highway 35 in Elko New Market. It would feature a 7/8-mile oval track that could seat up to 65,000 spectators and accommodate Indy and NASACAR-type races, and a quarter-mile drag strip with seating for up to 35,000 spectators. A hotel with 500-plus rooms and a large exhibition center are also planned. Former Minnesota Department of Transportation Commissioner Elwyn Tinklenberg was hired by the International Motorsports Entertainment and Development Corp. to lead the Nov. 29 presentation before a packed audience. The company has contracts with a “sufficient number” of landowners, Tinklenberg said, while not answering what percentage of the land is locked up. He was also tight-lipped about the source of fi nancing, but said developers are still working to obtain private funds and are “very confident” on obtaining the main source of funding needed. A pool of small investors has funded the efforts thus far. The development company, a Minnesota corporation, will seek road infrastructure improvements from local governments. It has no intention to start the project until everything is in place to fund it, Tin-

klenberg said. The company is paying for traffic analysis to be completed by a consultant for Scott County, he said. Tinklenberg was quizzed by local government leaders as to why the project is being proposed in Scott County after failing to gain traction earlier in both the Lino Lakes and Big Lake areas. He responded that Elko New Market is the best of the sites considered – located 35 minutes from the metropolitan area with freeway access, a history of racing and nearby entertainment venues like Valleyfair. “The sanctioning bodies are looking for those kinds of fan experiences,” Tinklenberg said. Regarding the effect it would have on nearby Elko Speedway, Tinklenberg said developers would like to coordinate with the existing track as best they can. Noise impacts will be studied as part of the environmental review, he said, pledging the project will meet or exceed state noise standards. Tinklenberg also believes the facility would spur side development, including restaurants. “It would be the economic equivalent of having a Super Bowl in the state every year,” he said. The facility could be also used year-round for a variety of events, such as car and bike shows, dirt bike racing, concerts and driving schools, he said. Scott County Board Chair Tom Wolf, who has been involved in preliminary discussions with developers, told the audience, “Every time I see this, I go, ‘Wow, this project will forever change Elko New Market

CROWD RESPONSE Whether the quiet crowd, which asked few questions and filed out soon after the meeting, was swayed by Tinklenberg’s presentation is unclear. David Pickit, who lives 10 minutes down County Road 2 in Cedar Lake Township, gasped when he heard the timeline for the project: construction in early 2013 and operational in 2014. A building engineer for a Twin Cities entertainment venue who could perhaps get a job at the speedway if it comes to fruition, Pickit is cautiously optimistic. He doesn’t want to see local residents “screwed” if the project doesn’t pan out. “Who is paying for it?” Pickit

Former Minnesota State Transportation Commissioner Elwyn Tinklenberg, now a spokesman for the International Motorsports Entertainment and Development Corporation, spoke before local government officials and a packed house of Elko New Marketarea residents last week. asked. “He didn’t say who is paying for it.” Following the meeting, Scott Long – an independent investment banker who is assisting the developers – explained that negotiations are under way with financial institutions, whose names will be revealed once funding packages are fi nalized. He said discussions have involved both foreign and domestic sources, with funding possibly coming from banks, sovereig n wea lth funds or wealthy individuals abroad. “Enough of them are serious enough that I believe we’re over the bridge, but it’s not in ink yet,” Long said. Of about 35 early investors, Long said a handful attended the Elko New Market meeting.

A THIRD TRY Tinklenberg said the project will undergo an extensive environmental review in Scott County. About half of the proposed development lies in New Market Township and is proposed for annexation by the city of Elko New Market. A similar project was proposed in Big Lake Township in August 2008 and in Lino Lakes at the end of 2010. No formal development application was ever made in Big Lake, senior city planner Katie Larsen said, but city leaders had concerns because the company was unable to provide traffic or noise-related information in preliminary discussions. Township residents were skeptical because the company

has never developed a track before. In the presentation in Elko New Market, Tinklenberg mentioned that the company is working with sports-management consulting fi rm Don Schumacher and Associates and Baskervill Architects, which has designed major race tracks. Lino Lakes City Administrator Jeff Karlson said the company wanted a letter of support from his city, but the council was unwilling to do so without further information. A preliminary noise analysis was conducted, at the request of the city, but developers didn’t want to undertake an environmental assessment, which would have cost hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Boegeman family celebrates 100 years on Credit River farm BY MARY JOHNSON BOEGEMAN

SUBMITTED PHOTOS

Upper left: The original house still stands today. Upper right: Frank Boegeman and son Rollie built the barn in the 1930s. Bottom left: Bob and Cindy Boegeman, with their daughter Kali, hosted a 100-year celebration in October. Center: Rollie and Betty Boegeman raised 12 children and ran a dairy farm. Bottom right: Frank and Pauline Boegeman.

Oct. 2, 1911 marked the beginning of the history of the Credit River Boegeman family farm and the family being rooted in the community. Meri (Frazen) Boegeman (widow of Johan Boegeman) of Marystown purchased the farm from Thomas and Margaret Kane of Credit River. Meri paid $9,465 for the 155.6 acres. Meri sold the farm to son and daughter-in-law Frank and Pauline Boegeman, who raised 10 children: Florence, Lucille, Ethel, Roland, Annabelle, Ruth, Marion, Edward, Elaine and Francis, all of whom were born at the farm. The farm was always a place for entertaining, as most of their children’s wedding receptions were held

there. In the 1930s, Frank and son Rollie, along with many neighbors, built the barn. Although improvements have been made, the original house and barn still exist today. In 1952, Frank and Pauline sold the dairy farm to son and daughter-in-law Roland and Betty Boegeman. Frank and Pauline moved to Pleasant Street in Prior Lake. Frank went to work for the city of Prior Lake, being the one and only city worker during the 1950s. The farm being a good place to raise a family, Rollie and Betty raised 12 children there: Five daughters, Bev (Seurer), Betty (Menke), Joan (Hennen), Mary (Johnson) and Sharon (Strandemo); and seven sons, Tom, Kurt, Don, Mike, Bob, Steve and Frank. In 1973, Rollie was elected as a Scott County commissioner, at which time

he and Betty started cutting back on the dairy farming. In 1995, Rollie sold the farm to son and daughter-in-law Bob and Cindy Boegeman, where they still reside with daughter Kali. On Oct. 1, 2011, to mark the 100 years, Bob and Cindy hosted a celebration welcoming all their Boegeman relatives and Credit River family and friends to celebrate this milestone. For many, it is always a place to call home, and it holds many memories for the Boegeman children, grandchildren and neighbors. But I think one aunt (93 years old) stated it perfectly as she rode up the driveway for the celebration: “This is a place where we always had fun!”
