Fate of SS-9 forest area in City Council’s hands Monday vote could pave way for grading, tree removal and road construction BY AMY LYON editor@savagepacer.com

The Savage City Council is expected to take action Monday night (Aug. 1) on a revised preliminary and fi nal plat application from Prior LakeSavage Area School District (ISD 719) that would pave the way for grading, tree removal and realignment of a road right-of-way at the Prior Lake High School site.

What is SS-9? South Savage-9 (SS-9) is a 7.6-acre forest area located along County Road 27 – southwest of the Prior Lake High School campus – and owned by District 719. The forest was identified as being a valuable woodland area during a Natural Resources Inventory completed by the city in 2001. SS-9 includes approximately 550 trees.

Construction resumes on Highway 13/101 interchange project BY ALEX HALL ahall@swpub.com

Construction resumed Sunday on the Highway 13/Highway 101 interchange project a fter being suspended for weeks due to the state government shutdown. The fi rst overnight lane closures began Sunday (July 24) at 8 p.m. as crews began striping, setting barriers and shifting traffic as necessary

to complete their work. Much of the initial roadwork will be done late at night, according to Charleen Zimmer, a consultant on the project. The original completion date for roadwork on the interchange was June 2012, but Zimmer said that date could change because of the time lost during the shutdown. “It will be another week at least before we have a new approved schedule,” said Zimmer. “Generally

the rule of thumb is that folks lost about a month of time, so we’ll have to add that time to the schedule.” But Zimmer said predicting the schedule right now isn’t an easy task. “It could take longer, it could actually be shorter, we don’t really know right now,” Zimmer said. While it’s unknown exactly how the schedule will be affected, Zimmer said crews will likely do more than just pick up where they left

off. “I think in general there will be an effort to catch up as much as possible,” she said. Zimmer said the schedule will also be affected by weather and how much work, if any, will be able to be done in the winter. The $19 million project is expected to expand the interchange’s capacity by more than double and

Senior living, horse stable proposed behind library City Council will review Keystone’s preliminary development plan Aug. 1

THE DEVELOPMENT The Keystone Communities development would essentially be a “tiered� setup, according to Savage Public Works Director John Powell. The upper tier would include a three-level 116-unit senior care facility with underground parking and 12 single-level senior townhomes. The lower tier would include a 25,000-squarefoot private equestrian center and training arena with an apartment for the trainer. The stable would have 15 stalls with allowance for up to 23 horses. The city zoning ordinance allows for up to five horses depending on the number of acres, according to Tucker, but it also makes provision for the number of horses to be increased with conditional

“The first time this came in, I will say, staff looked at it and said, ‘well, this is very interesting, very unique. Our concern would be if it was truly designed to be a public stable, but that is a whole different scenario than what is proposed here.�

knowing that this area north of McColl Drive will be developed.� Beata Lou Mueller, a resident of the 13000 block of Yosemite Ave. S., concurred that the area has “awesome wildlife� that should be protected. “When we bought our home, we were told that there will never be anything built behind us because it is protected Fen,� said Mueller. “I guess that was not true.� A couple of residents in the neighborhood to the east questioned the removal of the tree line that would serve as a “buffer� between the senior care facility and the neighborhood. A recent tree inventory identified 151 significant trees in the proposed development area, and Allen said that the development would be allowed up to 50 percent tree removal under city code. The plan calls for approximately 25 percent tree removal. In addition to the traffic from deliveries and “garbage men coming in and out,� Julie Anderson, a resident of W. 130th Lane, was concerned about the safety of the residents out walking and the steep nature of the property. The architect for the project said that there would be a high fence along the edge of the property “to prevent anyone from going down the hill.� He also said that a sidewalk would be created from the entrance of the development to the library. Joe Julius, a resident of W. 130th Lane, was concerned about “maintaining the integrity of the Yosemite neighborhood.� Julius noted that a traffic study estimated an additional 50 vehicle trips through the Yosemite neighborhood each day. “An additional 50 trips is probably triple the number of trips we get through there right now,� he said. Powell noted that there are “options for mitigating traffic concerns,� but public streets are “designed to handle traf-

The proposed development includes 12 townhomes, a 116-unit senior care facility and a private horse stable/training facility.

I f local land owner Karl Bohn has his way, Keystone Communities will receive the preliminary approval Monday night to build a senior living facility, senior townhomes and a private equestrian center behind the Library and City Hall complex. Bohn’s preliminary development plan request will go before the Savage City Council Monday, Aug. 1, and i f ap proved, will also require plat and final site plan approval before any construction can begin. The Economic Development Commission, Planning Commission, and Parks, Recreation and Natural Resources Commission each recommended unanimous approval of the project after review at their most recent meetings. The 24-acre property is currently zoned for high-density residential (R-3) and would require rezoning to a planned mixed-use district (PMD).

As for the stables, Allen said they are a “nice fit� as part of a “unique design in kind of an interesting development.� When the topics of horse manure and odor surfaced, Tucker said that there are standards in place within the zoning ordinance related to odor and dust, similar to any other land-use nuisance. With its recommendation for approval, the Planning Commission also requested

JOIN THE CHAT WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THE PROPOSED KEYSTONE DEVELOPMENT AND EQUESTRIAN CENTER?

www.savagepacer.com that the architect readdress sidewalks and trail conditions, and re-evaluate the location of the service road in an effort to save trees. Keystone Communities has developments in Prior Lake, Eagan, Faribault and Mankato – although none of the developments features an equestrian center like the one proposed in Savage. Olson said the senior residents of the 130-unit townhome facility in Mankato were surveyed a year-and-a-half ago about what kind of mixed use they would want to see on the property if space were available. They were given the options of a golf course, horse stable, more townhomes or a city park. “The serene stables won,� said Olson.

GUEST COMMENTARY

Budget deficit has effects on middle class Our nation is facing a very real problem with our budget deficit, and there’s no question that we need to solve it. I don’t think you’d find anyone from either political party who’d disagree. The question, of course – and what Congress and the President have been negotiating for the past several months – is how we’re going to address it. And one of the things I’m most worried about is how the budget will affect the middle class. Today, the American middle class is in trouble. Median family income is down. Jobs are scarce. Opportunities people thought they’d earned through hard work are disappearing before their eyes. Working families are falling farther and farther behind. And we often hear people wishing for a return to the “good ol’ days” – when the economy was growing, everyone was optimistic, and we went to bed at night secure in the knowledge that our kids would have better opportunities than we had. But what people miss when they talk about those “good ol’ days,” of course, is that they were good for a reason. They were good because people fought for the values and principles that made the middle class possible. People fought for the idea that the government should provide economic security for the middle class and provide the means for those looking to pull themselves up into it. That America should be in the business of making things, and that we should invest in innovation and infrastructure so that we can have an economy where there’s enough for everyone. And having built that America we’re all so proud of, we now need to fight for the middle class to save it. We need to stand by the principle that we should grow together instead of growing apart, and that, as Paul Wellstone believed, we all do better when we all do better. That’s a sentiment we need to keep in mind as we keep working on the budget. As the negotiations continue, I’ll be fighting to protect Medicare, a program that has given countless middle class Minnesotans a safety net and allowed seniors to live with security and dignity. Republicans have proposed to reduce the deficit by ending Medicare as we know it while proposing additional tax cuts for America’s wealthiest few. Their plan would also cut billions from infrastructure, education and job training – all things we know have helped middle class families get good jobs and keep them. That approach is just plain wrong and would hurt thousands of middle class families. That’s why I’ll be working to save Medicare and invest in the things we know will help our economy

grow. Instead, I think there are some common sense cuts we could make to deal with our deficit that won’t hurt middle class families. For example, I’ve introduced legislation to cut prescription drug costs for seniors in Minnesota and across the country by allowing the federal government to negotiate lower prices for Medicare beneficiaries. The Veterans Administration (VA) already does it. And guess what? The VA pays an average of nearly 50 percent less than Medicare does for the top 10 most prescribed drugs. By allowing Medicare to negotiate with the pharmaceutical companies, we can save as much as $24 billion a year, or $240 billion over the next 10 years. We can also save a lot of money by cutting military spending. We all agree that national security is very important, but last year former Defense Secretary Robert Gates identified $100 billion in sensible cuts we could make to the defense budget. And we are currently paying for weapons systems that the military doesn’t want and aren’t useful. So let’s stop buying them. But cutting spending alone isn’t going to be enough to solve our deficit crisis. We’re also going to have to raise some revenue from those who can afford to pay a little extra. One way to do this is by getting rid of the subsidies taxpayers give to major corporations like big oil companies. Over the next 10 years, oil companies will receive more than $45 billion in taxpayer subsidies. At the same time, the top five oil companies made nearly $1 trillion in profits over the last decade. They don’t need our help and that money could be much better spent. I believe a strong middle class leads to strong consumer spending, a strong economy and national prosperity. The middle class is where you get entrepreneurs and small businesses – the engines of our economy. And that’s why I’ll be fighting for a budget that will help the middle class thrive. (Sen.

COMMUNITY VOICES

‘No new taxes’ ideology threatens our faith and credit What if the headlines of the Star Tribune and Washington Post read: “Iran has infiltrated our government, shut down the state of Minnesota for 20 days and threatened the full faith and credit of the United States.” Wouldn’t we all be up in arms? Well, what if you changed the headlines to read: “A (no new taxes) ideology, which is designed to protect the richest Americans and large corporations no matter what the cost, has shut down the state of Minnesota for 20 days and threatens the full faith and credit of the United States.” How would we all react? Please look at the last 11 years. When President Clinton left office in 2000, we had surpluses as far as we could see. President Bush and his Republican allies, including John Kline, passed massive tax cuts that benefited almost exclusively the richest Americans and large corporations. Recent Republican tax policies encourage large companies to send American jobs overseas, continually allow large companies to avoid taxes through offshore subsidiaries and resist any effort to get rid of tax loopholes or raise revenue if it might affect the richest Americans or large corporations. Republicans voted to raise the federal debt ceiling many times between 2000 and 2008 to protect these tax policies. In Minnesota, Gov. Pawlenty and his Republican allies, including our local legislators, consistently protected the richest Minnesotans by preventing any income tax increases even though the rich have the lowest overall Minnesota tax

rates, causing the rest of us to pay more in property taxes. The (no new taxes) ideology, along with the 2008 collapse of the U.S. economy, caused a $6 billion deficit in this year’s state budget. Republicans were swept into office last year with their promise that they would add jobs and get rid of budget deficits. What happened? In the state of Minnesota, the recent shutdown caused the temporary loss of thousands of state public employee jobs and many other related private jobs. Because of Republican initiatives, the budget that was just passed will offer fewer infrastructure jobs, fewer medical sector jobs, fewer education jobs – just fewer jobs. It would have been worse without Gov. Dayton there to veto the worst cuts. The Republican “(no new taxes) so we can protect the rich at any cost” ideology caused an inflexibility that shut down the Minnesota government for 20 days, and passed the tough decisions down the road through borrowing and shifts. The federal government had large surpluses when the

Republicans came into office in 2000. Through huge tax cuts for the richest Americans and large corporations, a refusal to increase revenues, non-payment for wars and an economic meltdown caused by lack of regulation, those surpluses turned into massive budget deficits. Now, the same party that was a major cause of the deficits and the huge public debt – solely to follow the “(no new taxes) so we can protect the richest Americans and large corporations” ideology – is threatening our country’s economy with a default on our federal debts by refusing to raise the debt ceiling. This is so, even though President Obama compromised to get a deficit-reduction plan in place. To me, a fiscal conservative and former Republican who worked on various Republican campaigns, the current Republican promises of more jobs and reduced deficits look like false advertising. Why don’t current Republicans just admit that “(no new taxes) so we can protect the richest Americans and large corporations” is their governing ideology, not adding jobs and reducing deficits? Unfortunately, this ideology is threatening our seniors, our middle class, our educational systems, our infrastructure, our economic and leadership standing in the world and the full faith and credit of the United States.

LETTERS FROM READERS SPIRITUAL REFLECTIONS

Good, loving and unchanging God? While I am positively sure that Mr. Koppendrayer is a good, loving, and respectable man, I must take issue with an assertion he made in his latest article (Spiritual Reflections, July 23) entitled, “Trusting in sovereign plan means letting go of control.” In it he states that everything we have and are is “in the hands of a sovereign God; a good, loving and unchanging God.” I would like to point out that in the Old Testament (which is a part of the Christian Bible) there are several instances of God encouraging and commanding acts of genocide, the slaughter

of pregnant women and the sexual enslavement of young girls. One only needs to read Numbers 31:17-18 for a prime example of this. If God is unchanging, then he would still harbor these ugly characteristics displayed of so well in the Old Testament. Finally, when Mr. Koppendrayer states, “God will work all things for the benefit of our situation,” I am not sure if he has the thoughts of those murdered or killed in mind. Was the murder of Kaylee Anthony for the benefit of her salvation? Was the kidnapping, forced confinement and daily rape of Jaycee Dugard for the benefit of her salvation? I would challenge anyone to answer in the affi rmative to anyone who has suffered such enormous transgressions.

LOW 3.49% FINANCING • OPEN TILL 8 MONDAY & THURSDAY there is one particularly large black beetle that these owls seem to relish. And their small bill is perfect for catching and eating insects. Many insects are active during the day so that means the owls need to be active during the day also. They spend many hours sitting on fence posts, on the ground or hovering about 30 feet in the air using their big yellow eyes to watch for their favorite food. At this time of year the baby burrowing owls are emerging from their dens into the sunlight for the fi rst time and for a wildlife photographer this is the moment to capture. Touching moments between parents and young make for some of the best wildlife photography. Interaction between siblings is also a golden moment. I am here to capture it all. After spending time looking for active nests my photography partner and I decide on a particular nest. We set up our small two- person blind, constructed of dark rip-stop nylon and climb inside for the long wait. It was about 3 p.m. and the heat of the day had built to

The CSHS was told the bird is an Italian Owl pigeon. According to the leg band, Feathers is five years old. The leg band was traced to an issuer who failed to keep records of sales while at the bird shows. A nice 4-H project, possibly? Fee is $7.

After that we sat there in the intense heat sweating so profusely that not only was our clothing soaked but even our leather belts holding up our pants were soaked. It was a literal sauna in there. During the wait we had some talk about what we should do if one of us passes out from the heat and lack of water. What should we do? Does the other keep shooting until they get a good shot or do we abandon everything and head out. Being dedicated wildlife photographers, we decided on getting the images. The hours passed and fi nally the adults started coming in with beaks full of large insects. The young would run out of the burrow to accept the offerings from the parents. After grabbing the insect, the parents would fly off and the

young would go back to the cool underground chamber. Just when the sun was getting low in the sky, offering some of the sweetest golden light, the light that wildlife photographers dream about, the adult burrowing owls really started bringing in the insects and our cameras were smoking. We captured many images of interaction and intimacy in the owl family. When the sun sank below the horizon we emerged from our nylon hot box into evening air, still in the high 90s, which felt relatively cool compared to our hot confinement. We packed up the blind and started the walk back to my truck. Another great evening in the grasslands. Until next time...

The vast open prairies and grasslands of the American West are marvelous places for nature lovers like me. Recently I have been spending a lot of time wandering around in these great treeless regions. Nothing but grasses and flowers for as far as the eye can see. Trees have been replaced by the sky and the wind constantly sweeps across the landscape. You might think at fi rst that these grasslands are devoid of life but that would be untrue. In fact, this grassy habitat is fi lled with all manner of life — insects, reptiles, amphibians, mammals and especially birds. One of the birds that calls the grasslands home is the burrowing owl (Athene cunicularia). The burrowing owl is just one species in a very long list of critters that all depend on a rather non-dramatic, nonglamorous species — the prairie dog — for survival. These small mammals of the grasslands live in large colonies and dig elaborate underground burrows. Ever ything from rattlesnakes, dung beetles, swift foxes, black-footed ferrets and burrowing owls use these burrows for their homes. Burrowing owls are small ground-dwelling owls that are less than 10 inches tall. Much of this height is attributed to their long legs. They have bright white eyebrows and throats which make their yellow eyes stand out. Unlike other raptors, they have a very small bill. The reason for this lies in what they eat. They don’t eat large mammals or other major food items. No, they eat insects —mainly beetles. In the grasslands there are many kinds of beetles but

detachments, and another member suggested having a drill competition. “If we could blend our resources, it would make us that much more effective,” said Pete Williams. To be a member of the Two Eagles, or any other Marine Corps League detachment, there are only two qualifications: one must have served in the Marines and must have been discharged honorably. However, Navy Corpsmen are also eligible to join their group due to their close working relationship with the Marines. Many members of the detachment are also members of the Marine Riders, a motorcycle group consisting of former Marines. Ken and Pete Williams represented the group at the July 9 Armed Forces Day Bike Run Benefit for Beyond the Yellow Ribbon South of the River.

FOCUS ON RECRUITING During the group’s meetings, members discuss issues like planning fundraisers (they’ll be selling hot dogs, brats and flags outside of the Shakopee Sam’s Club Sept. 17 and 18), supporting programs that help Marines and perhaps most importantly right now, recruiting new members. “Recruiting, recruiting, recruiting,” Pete Williams said of the group’s primary goal. “The more members we have, the more we can serve Marines in the community.” But while a heavy emphasis on recruiting has been instilled in the group, they are still having trouble finding new members. One member said it’s often hard to connect with young Marines who

While the group would like to gain more young members, they are unapologetic for the presence of their older members. “What we need to tell (the younger guys) is that there’s a lot to be learned from the older (Marines),” said Vinnie Howard, who is the commandant of the North Star detachment that meets in Bloomington. But Howard also insisted that the younger and older Marines are more alike than some might think. “The only real difference is

LIVESREMEMBERED Ronald F. Baertsch Ron was born Sept. 25, 1937 in Minneapolis, to Dudley and Sylvia (Kuglin) Baertsch. First living in Stacy, MN and then in Almelund, MN, he was raised on the family farm with his two brothers, Richard and Bruce. Growing up with three brothers meant a lot of mischievous times and pranks being played. Ron attended school in Almelund until the eighth grade, during the summers he was a pitcher for the Almelund Nite Owls softball team and he also pitched for the Harris softball team. Ron later graduated from the North Branch High School in 1955. On June 5, 1959, Ron married Janet Christensen at St. Peter’s Church in Dresser, WI. Moving to Crystal, MN, for a short time, he was soon drafted and proudly served the Unites States Army for the next two years in Oklahoma. Returning from the service, Ron and Janet moved back to the Minneapolis area, where they welcomed two sons into their family, David and John. From the early 1970’s, until he retired in 1992, Ron worked in the construction business. For most of his career he was a brick layer foreman for Northland Concrete Company. Ron took his brick laying talent and built the stone wall behind the altar at the original Shepherd of the Lake Lutheran Church.His talents of carpentry also included building a gazebo and those infamous mushrooms. As a young family, they enjoyed the annual weeklong vacation with the Johnke family, fishing near Perham, MN. As the boys grew up, they cheered on the Minnesota Vikings and played many games of Cribbage. In Ron’s later years, he relished being a grandpa to his five grandchildren. Taking them for rides behind the tractor, listening to them laugh and squeal in the tree swings, and preparing the hill for them to sled down in the winter time. He also built them an awesome tree house and a playhouse in his yard. Moving to Prior Lake, MN in 1971, Ron had the opportunity to dabble in gardening. After he retired, gardening became a true passion and hobby. Ron built a huge greenhouse, where he would work and nurture the plants most of the year. He would start to plant in late winter and harvest well into the December, with Janet doing the canning. For the past four years, Ron has hosted the ‘Tomato Fest’ in early August at the family estate.This event allowed his relatives to gather together, share in great times and enjoy the many different varieties of tomatoes Ron grew. A quiet man, Ron also had a great sense of humor, especially when it came to playing practical jokes or creating a silly game; however, Ron also had a serious side and loved to read. He was a loving and caring brother, husband, father, and grandfather. A resident of Prior Lake, Ron was 73 years young when he passed away in the late morning of Friday, June 10, 2011 at Abbott Northwestern Hospital in Minneapolis. Ron is loved and will be deeply missed by wife of 52 years, Janet; sons, David (Laura) Baertsch of Farmington, John (Christella) Baertsch of Lake Villa, IL; grandchildren, Alexandra, Brittany, Gina, Kaitlyn, Nicole Baertsch; brothers, Richard (Mariko) Baertsch of New York, Bruce (Sue) Baertsch of Hastings; and other loving relatives and friends. Ron is preceded in death by his parents. The Celebration of Life Service will be Friday, Aug. 5, at 11 a.m., with visitation starting at 9:30 a.m. at BallardSunder Funeral Home, 4565 Pleasant St. SE., Prior Lake. Ron will be laid to rest with full military honors and a 21-gun salute provided by the Fort Snelling Volunteer Rifle Squad at Fort Snelling National Cemetery in Minneapolis.

A SHARED EXPERIENCE While engaging the community and serving local Marines are two of the detachment’s main goals, it’s often the camaraderie that proves to be the main draw for a lot of members. “It’s really about being with other Marines,” said Howard. “It’s a bond that you’re not going to find in other branches of the military, except for maybe Navy Seals or the Army Rangers. It’s something special.” “It’s a shared experience

that you have with the guys,” another member added, “not just physically, but mentally. Mostly mentally.” And that shared experience is something that these men will always have, as evidenced by their slogan. “‘Once a Marine, always a Marine,’” Howard recited, “and we take that (slogan) very seriously.” Howard explained that they view the Marines as the smallest branch of the military with the “biggest amount of pride.” “Some people may view us as arrogant, and maybe we are,” said Ken Williams, “but it’s a well-earned arrogance.”

Roberts honored for Dan Patch Days work BY ALEX HALL ahall@swpub.com

It’s always when you don’t see it coming. “It’s kind of funny, in past years I had kind of thought about (winning the award),” said Roberts, “but this year

told me I had to be on stage. I was like ‘Um, I don’t have any reason to be up there,” Roberts said. Roberts, who owns and runs businesses Anchor Iron and Eagle Creek Gallery, both located at 12358 Boone Ave. in Savage, has been volunteering for Dan Patch Days for 15 years. And when the event seemed to hit a fork in the road in 2000, Roberts was part of the committee that helped bring it back to life. “He was really at the grassroots level of getting Dan Patch Days revitalized,” said Lori Anderson, Executive Director of the Savage Chamber of Commerce and current Dan Patch Days Board President. A few years later, Roberts joined the Dan Patch Days board of directors and has since served as co-chair, president, treasurer and most recently as secretary. For this year’s Dan Patch Days, Roberts performed typical secretary duties, such as taking meeting minutes, but he also handled a lot of the money operations, such as overseeing the cash registers and ticket operations, something he’s been doing since he originally served as treasurer. Anderson said Roberts’ honor was well earned. “We tend to give the award to someone who has gone above

I hadn’t given it any thought whatsoever.” During this year’s Dan Patch Days’ Saturday night festivities, Roberts was ushered up on the main stage and honored as the Dan Patch Days Volunteer of the Year for 2011. “I kind of had an inkling when they

and beyond that year, but also someone who’s gone above and beyond throughout the years,” Anderson said, “and Mark Roberts is that someone.” Anderson said the winner of the award is determined by the votes of former Volunteer of the Year recipients. Planning Dan Patch Days can be a complicated process, Roberts said, especially when taking the elements into consideration. “It’s tough because you’re running an event where you never know what factors are going to affect it, positively or negatively, and the weather’s always at the top of that list,” Roberts said. “Thankfully the weather was much better this year.” But despite the sometimes stressful process, Roberts said he truly enjoys volunteering, especially during the weekend itself. “I really like the pressure-cooker atmosphere of it,” said Roberts. “You know you’re going to work intensely for a certain number of hours, and then it’s going to be over.” His favorite part of the planning process? “Scouting the bands that we hire to play,” said Roberts. Roberts said he and fellow Board of Directors member Jim Coan have seen more than 60-70 bands in the last few years

while looking for fun, appropriate acts to feature on Friday and Saturday nights. “It’s a horrible job, but someone’s gotta do it,” Roberts said with a chuckle. Roberts said he looks forward to continuing his work

with Dan Patch Days and the challenges that it brings. “I expect to pretty much keep the same duties,” said Roberts, “and now our challenge is to keep the event fresh and respond to changes as the event matures”

school and future development of the PLA site. According to Tucker, the only other “viable option” for the roadway would be to utilize the existing right-of-way to construct the road, which would involve “considerable costs” to the school district that could be as much as $1.5 million. PLA and District 719 entered into an agreement in April that outlined the terms of construction – namely that PLA would undertake the road construction at no cost to the school district. Additionally, as part of the agreement, PLA would install three new athletic fields on the SS-9 land, as well as a parking lot for 81 vehicles. “This obviously is a very difficult project,” said Public Works Director John Powell. “From a park, recreation, natural resource standpoint, you have the potential for the recreation fields, but you also have the potential for removing SS-9.”

While the EDC unanimously recommended approval to the City Council, the Planning Commission was less agreeable – ultimately recommending approval with a 5-2 vote. Commissioners Bob Coughlen and Chris Picard voted against recommending approval. Prior Lake-Savage Superintendent Sue Ann Gruver recog nized the “competing priorities” related to sustaining “wonderful oak trees” and planning for the future viability of the community. Gruver said that student safety and cost avoidance were the two main “filters” that have been used by school district staff during the planning process. Representatives from P.L.A.Y. lacrosse club and Prior Lake Soccer Club expressed their desire for additional fields during the Planning Commission meeting; however, no other members of the public spoke up at the meeting.

JOIN THE CHAT DO YOU THINK THE CITY COUNCIL SHOULD APPROVE ISD 719’S REQUEST, WHICH WOULD ALLOW FOR THE REMOVAL OF SS-9?

www.savagepacer.com

“For months now we’ve been talking about a sports dome and having the city spend $5-$6 million, which is a bit of a gamble. But then we talk about spending $1.5 million to save SS-9 and we’re saying that’s a considerable expense.” Ron Schwartz Savage Parks, Recreation, Natural Resources Commission

Questions about future development of the area date back to 2001, when the initial developer’s agreement to build the high school was approved. At a Jan. 14, 2008, work session, the City Council discussed grading/preservation options for SS-9, and at that time, the School District was notified that it would need to formalize a proposal for city

consideration. Since that time, the School District, of ficials and PLA representatives have worked together to evaluate options for the site. On April 11 of this year, the School District made application to the city for preliminary and fi nal plat revisions. Public notices regarding ISD 719’s revised preliminary and fi nal plat application were sent to more than 80 property owners within 350 feet of the high school property on July 5, and a notice was published in the newspaper July 9. As of July 27, city staff had not received any comments or questions from residents related to notices. The City Council is expected to vote on the revised preliminary and fi nal plat during its regular meeting on Monday, Aug. 1. The meeting will take place at 7 p.m. at City Hall, 6000 McColl Drive.

From now on, access from westbound Highway 13/101 to local businesses and streets will be made from southbound Highway 13 and Dakota Avenue. Eastbound motorists will still be able to make right turns to and from Highway 13/101, and drivers can still make right turns entering

or exiting Highway 13/101 at both Louisiana and Zinran. Also, the Highway 13/101 intersection will be temporarily converted to a four-way stop for a short time at some point as the signals go to a fl ashing red light and crews complete work in the intersection.

Kathy Peterson made a motion to deny the recommendation of approval since it would involve the removal of SS-9. The Commission voted 4-3 against her recommendation for denial. A second motion recommend i n g appr ova l p a s s e d 4 -3. Commissioners Daniel Deziel, Kathy Peterson and Ron Schwartz voted against recommending approval. Peterson was most concerned about the wildlife in the SS-9 area. “You cannot mitigate an old-growth forest disappearing,” said Peterson. “There’s wildlife embedded in there … I don’t think this is beneficial to all parties.” Schwartz questioned the value the city places on SS-9 versus other projects. “For months now we’ve been talking about a sports dome and having the city spend $5-6 million, which is a bit of a gamble,” said Schwartz. “But then we talk about spending $1.5 million to save SS-9 and we’re saying that’s a considerable expense.” Powel l r e c o g n i z e d t h at Schwartz’s concern is at “the core of the debate;” however, he noted that the indoor sports facility would have an ongoing revenue source. “As far as this roadway, it would be city funds that we’d have to allocate,” said Schwartz. “But that really is the essence of the discussion. Twenty years from now, what does it look like? We don’t know exactly what the development in Prior Lake Aggregate will look like.” In one development scenario for its property north of County Road 44, PLA includes 1,000 multi-family/townhome units, 226 single-family residences, and 375,000 square feet of commercial.

Every high school class has that one student who seems to be involved in every activity. Prior Lake High Schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Class of 1971 had Karen Kalton. Her smiling face is plastered throughout the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 1971 yearbook, in photos for various theater productions, sports and musical activities. Kaltonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s scholastic achievements include being ranked second in her senior class, serving as secretary for her schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s National Honor Society chapter and being president of her sophomore and junior classes. Kaltonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s omnipresence actually prompted one of her teachers to ask her if she wanted to be quarterback of the football team. She declined the offer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There were so many opportunities for me,â&#x20AC;? Kalton said gratefully. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think it goes back to the school being smaller, and they just let me do it all.â&#x20AC;? Kalton is now being inducted into the Laker Hall of Fame, at a ceremony set for 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 3 at Fongâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Event Center in Prior Lake. Kalton left Prior Lake to attend what is now Minnesota State University-Mankato, where she continued her theatrical pursuits. Kalton had â&#x20AC;&#x153;always loved music,â&#x20AC;? and one of her high school teachers, Arlys Johnson, encouraged her to add a music major to her plan to study theater.

Kalton said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really where it blossomed.â&#x20AC;? Kaltonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plate remained full at Mankato. She acted in various theatrical performances and worked with the costume department crew for other productions â&#x20AC;&#x201C; all while serving as a student senator and a secretary for the Music Student Advisory Board, and eventually graduating magna cum laude. But Kaltonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s voice lights up when she discusses the Ellis St. Singers, the student show choir she sang in and directed while also doing arrangements and costume design. Long

before Ryan Murphy ever got his grip on todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hits for the cast of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Glee,â&#x20AC;? Kalton listened to the radio in search of tunes for the Ellis St. Singers to perform. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If I thought we could sing and dance to it, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d do an arrangement for the group and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d sing and dance to it,â&#x20AC;? she said. Kalton arranged classics including â&#x20AC;&#x153;Stairway to Heavenâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;MacArthur Parkâ&#x20AC;? for the choir, as well as an ambitious slate of selections from â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pippin.â&#x20AC;?

Meredith Grey isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the only doctor in Seattle worth boasting about. Prior Lake is the hometown of another Emerald City physician, one who runs marathons, earns awards and above all else, isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fictional. SiobĂ n Keel, a graduate of the Prior Lake High School Class of 1990, will head back to her hometown next week to be inducted into the Laker Hall of Fame. Keel is one of two PLHS alumni set to enter the Hall of Fame for distinguished achievement at this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recognition banquet, scheduled for 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 3 at Fongâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Event Center, 4770 Pleasant St., Prior Lake. If you think her last name rings a bell, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not alone. The Keel family has a pretty steady presence in Prior Lake and is well-represented in the Laker Hall of Fame. Paul Keel, SiobĂ nâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brother, was inducted into the Hall last year, the fourth Keel to share the honor. He spread the wealth this year and nominated his sister SiobĂ n, who couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe it when she found out sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d made the cut. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was notified of my induction by e-mail,â&#x20AC;? Keel explained. â&#x20AC;?I am the youngest of six children and all of my siblings are highly accomplished â&#x20AC;&#x201C; I assumed that the award committee had contacted the wrong Keel.â&#x20AC;? Of course, Keelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s resume is full of Hall of Fameworthy achievements. In her years at PLHS, Keel served as president of the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s National Honor Society chapter, earned three letters in band for playing the flute, as well as amassing eight varsity letters for her participation on the tennis, cross-country skiing and track-and field teams. Keel was also captain of the tennis and crosscountry skiing teams. She managed to do it all while maintaining a 4.0 grade-point average, for which Keel was named salutatorian of her senior class. She remembers the struggles just as vividly as the successes, but learned lessons from them all â&#x20AC;&#x201C; lessons she attributes to the PLHS community. â&#x20AC;&#x153;PLHS afforded everyone numerous opportunities to participate rigorously both in and outside of the classroom,â&#x20AC;?

Keel said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The environment encouraged me to speak up in class, play lots of sports and join numerous clubs. I certainly did not excel at all of my activities (I definitely was not born to run hurdles in track, at least not quickly) but I felt welcomed and needed which was important to me at that time of my development. It engendered confidence in me and inspired me to be very active and very serious. I remember suffering a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Bâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; in 10th grade P.E. because I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t throw a football in a perfect spiral; I appreciate that my high school education made me care about many varied things.â&#x20AC;? After Keel left Prior Lake, she ventured a short distance south to Northfield, Minn., where she attended Carleton College. There she became a member of Phi Beta Kappa, a scholastic honor society, before earning her bachelorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s degree in 1994 and graduating magna cum laude. Her experiences from high school carried over into her college education. â&#x20AC;&#x153;PLHS [and Carleton College] taught me to learn and experience things broadly,â&#x20AC;? Keel said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As a clinician and scientist, I rely on this approach daily.â&#x20AC;? She went on to earn her medical degree from the University of Minnesota, where she later completed an internal-medicine residency. Keel found both personal and professional growth, marrying Joseph Marquez. The couple lives in Seattle, where Keel splits her hours between patient care and research at both the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance Hematology Clinic (hematology is the medical practice devoted to studying blood) and the inpatient Leukemia and Hematology Consult Service at the University of Washington

Hospital. Though her husbandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s family lives in Los Angeles and the couple calls the Pacific Northwest home, Keel still manages to get back to Laker territory to see her family a few times each year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I love returning to Minnesota. It remains very much home for me,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When we are in town, Joseph and I like to run around Cleary Lake, eat Midwestern corn on the cob â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the corn in Seattle canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t compare â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and on hot summer days, take a dip in my parentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;dunk tankâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (a homemade concrete tub filled with ice cold water from the hose which doubles as an extremely large birdbath and vegetable cleaning tank). I also like checking in on my childhood neighbors, the Harms family.â&#x20AC;? Keel is looking forward to coming back this week to get in touch with her past and see her family, whom she credits with her latest accomplishment. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My family members are my favorite people in the world,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am proud of them and enjoy their company. I have very exceptional parents to thank for this.â&#x20AC;? In the last two decades, a lot about Prior Lake and the high school have changed. Though Keel has plenty to be proud of, when it comes to one sport, time was not on her side. Had Keel attended PLHS in 2010 instead of 1990, she may have been able to accomplish a little bit more. She lettered in varsity soccer at Carleton for three years, despite not playing a minute of the sport for PLHS, where at that time, there was no girlsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; team. But Keel has no regrets â&#x20AC;&#x201C; only advice for current Lakers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I encourage them to engage fully in their lives in high school and beyond,â&#x20AC;? she said.

BURNSVILLE-EAGAN-SAVAGE SCHOOLS

Applicant list grows for vacant School Board seat Three more people have applied for the vacant seat on the Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School Board, joining Sheryl Burkhardt of Burnsville and Paul Butche, also of Burnsville. The three newest applicants include Mark Nesvig of Savage, Clynt Reddy of Burnsville and Robert VandenBoom of Eagan. The vacancy was created by the resignation of long-time board member Gail Morrison, who is moving to Savage but will no longer be living in District 191. Since more than two years remain in her four-year term, state law requires that the board appoint a successor to serve until the next general election in November 2012. Butche is a 2001 graduate

of Burnsville High School. He’s worked most recently for ProAct Inc. in Eagan, an organization dedicated to serving people with disabilities. Butche said he has also volunteered in the district for several years, assisting the athletics department and helping supervise school dances and other events. “(The School Board) is doing a very good job, but I do believe that now is the time for the younger generation to start taking an active role in the board,” Butche said in an interview. Nesvig works as a paralegal at a Minneapolis law fi rm and worked as the sports editor for the Savage Pacer and the Prior Lake American from 2000-2008.

Nesvig has a wife who is a teacher at Harriet Bishop Elementary and a son who will be attending the school this fall. Nesvig said in an email that, as a local reporter, “I built many relationships with students, parents and educators in District 191 and got to know the district very well. I think the perspective and knowledge I gained in that capacity would serve me well on the school board.” Reddy is a 2005 graduate of Burnsville High School and a senior team leader at the Feed My Starving Children site in Eagan. Reddy started a youth ministry organization in 2006 called “Rampage,” which has served more than 1,000 south metro -area students and a

dozen nonprofits in the Twin Cities. Reddy also volunteered week ly for t he Bu r nsvi l le chapter of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes from 2005 to 2009. Reddy said in an email that since he graduated in 2005, he has “worked with high school students on an almost daily basis with tutoring, ministry and mentoring projects.” VandenBoom is a marketing executive who has worked in marketing leadership positions for the majority of his career. VandenBoom has spent more than a decade volunteering in the district, working on the Instruction and Curriculum Advisory Committee (ICAC), the Community Ed Advisory Committee (CEAC), the Communi-

cations Advisory Board, site councils, and has volunteered in various other capacities. VandenBoom has a son and daughter who have graduated from Burnsville High School and another daughter who will graduate from the school in 2014. Burkhardt is a paraprofessional working with special education students at Shakopee High School. She has spent years volunteering in District 191 as an English as a Second Language (ESL) instructor at Sioux Trail Elementary and Metcalf Junior High, and has been active i n elementa r y and junior high PTO both as a member and an officer, as high school site council chair, district instructional and as

curriculum committee representative. Burkhardt also worked at Metcalf Junior High for two years as an ESL teacher. She has three children who have all graduated from Burnsville High School. The district accepted applications until 1 p.m. Friday, July 29. At a public work session on Aug. 4, the Board of Education will interview all eligible applicants. Then, at its regular business meeting on Aug. 18, board members will determine an appointee by a simple majority vote. The new board member will be sworn in during the board meeting on Sept. 1 and will serve until December 2012. Compiled by Alex Hall

Seuss characters come to life at Twin Oaks Plenty of tasks carry age limits – 16 to get a driver’s license, 17 to see an R-rated movie alone, 18 to purchase lottery tickets – but how old does one have to be to enjoy the wonder of Dr. Seuss? Well, as Horton the Elephant would say, “A person’s a person no matter how small.” That motto works the other way, too, according to Megan Mulder. The director behind Stagehands Productions’ “Seussical Jr.,” which opens at 7 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 4, in the Twin Oaks Middle School auditorium, said audience members from age 2 to 80 can enjoy the musical, which puts rhythm and melody to some of Dr. Seuss’ most famous characters. “It’s kind of that human interest story but with animals,” Mulder said. “Even if you’re 80, you’ll remember what it’s like to be a child and have that imagination.” “Seussical Jr.,” a condensed version of the Broadway production “Seussical,” combines characters from across the Seuss universe, focusing mainly on the events of Horton the Elephant and his adventures in “Horton Hears a Who.” The pachyderm hears a dust particle talking to him and discovers its murmurs are those of an entire town of people, the Whos of Whoville, begging Horton to care for them. Though the other animals of the jungle are skeptical of Horton’s claims, he stands tall to protect his small pals. The show condenses a lot of Seuss’ most beloved stories, so audience members may find themselves reciting some of the dialogue whether or not they’ve seen the production before. Mulder has never seen “Seussical” before, but selected the show anyway. “I’m the mother of a 3 1/2 year old and all we do is read Dr. Seuss at home,” the Shakopee resident said. “I was so excited to find a show that was so family oriented and family friendly with such a good theme.” “Seussical Jr.” is Mulder’s

KALTON  continued from page 10

Spokane, Wash., just one of the many touring stops the choir made. Years after Kalton left the group, the Ellis St. Singers continued to perform her arrangements. After Kalton graduated from college, her mother got her a job in the mail room with the Burnsville-EaganSavage School District. Kalton, who also had a teaching license, would occasionally be relieved from her duties to fill in and substitute-teach in music classes. “It was teaching without the politics,” she said. “Because of that experience, I got to direct the summer musicals for Burnsville High School for two years.” During that time, she worked as a singing waitress and lived “every actor’s dream,” when the musical she arranged and performed in, “He Lived the Good Life,” premiered at the Guthrie Theater. It was the first musical performance staged at the theater. “It was a short-run performance,” Kalton said. “Every single performance was sold out. Every single performance was a standing ovation. It was spectacular.”

third summer show for Stagehands Productions, which runs the program through Prior Lake-Savage Area Schools Community Education Services. It’s a production she’s always wanted to do and “perfect timing” made it possible. One reason Mulder may have been so eager to stage the show: Her favorite Seuss character, Horton, is the star. Of all the characters featured in “Seussical Jr.,” 14-year-old Keara Bores was most excited at the prospect of playing the heroic Horton. “He listens to people and doesn’t want to do what he wants to do,” she said of his desire to help the Whos, despite criticism from the other animals. “He does what will make everyone else happy.” The role carries a lot of stage time, a lot of songs and means that Bores must spend the show in an elephant mask. But none of those factors were obstacles for the future highschool freshman. “Most of my lines are on the CD, which I have on my iPod and listen to all the time,” Bores said. “On the CD, all my parts are sung by a man so I had to take those notes and put them up an octave … It’s been just challenging because it’s the first guy part I’ve played.” That’s not the only way Bores differs from her character. “Obviously, I’m an elephant, so I can’t be super fast,” she said. “I have to move really slow and with a purpose, which so isn’t me.” Mulder even took time away from her family vacation to hand make the clovers, which play a central role in the story. She also wakes up in the morning and listens to the show’s soundtrack, because her daughter often requests it, and Mulder stays up at night sewing, making headbands, doing iron-ons and researching, all for “Seussical Jr.” “I just wanted it to be bright and vibrant,” Mulder said. “I think it helps that I’m so passionate about the show. I’ve put my heart and soul into it … I’ve worked a lot on the show and making it the best

it can be because I love it so much.” There’s not a lot of dialogue in “Seussical Jr.,” something Mulder sees as an asset for the show. “Music reaches a child in a way that dialogue doesn’t,” she said. Roess said she thinks kids will also be able to connect to the show. “I think younger kids will like it because a lot of them like Dr. Seuss and the characters of Dr. Seuss,” she said. “It’s just a fun story to watch.” While Mulder said she hopes her actors, whom she’s bonded with over the last month of rehearsing this show, and the audience, cling

to Horton’s belief in never letting anyone make you give up your dreams, Ruminsky so far has taken away a different lesson. “It doesn’t matter what you look like, or how tall you are or how small you are,” she said. “People should like you for who you are.”

Kalton then came to a fork – she could head westward or go east and try her talents on Broadway. A particularly brutal Minnesota winter helped Kalton make her decision. “I was so, so, tired of the cold,” she said. “I decided I would go west, try to establish residency for a year, and go to UCLA and get my master’s.” Disappointed by the smaller number of theater productions, Kalton took a position as a secretary at Universal Studios, much to her father’s dismay. “You’ve got a teaching degree!” Kalton recalls him exclaiming. “Why don’t you teach?” Kalton eventually worked her way up to being an executive assistant and, despite no legal training or background, began negotiating contracts for famous faces including Meryl Streep, Cher and Brat Pack scribe/auteur John Hughes. Tinseltown is also where Kalton met her husband, Robert Brown, a production manager on films including the 1998 Lindsay Lohan remake of “The Parent Trap,” “Robin Hood: Men in Tights” and “The Blues Brothers.” After having a miscarriage and losing out on a legal job at the studio, Kalton’s life changed once again.

“That was the 180,” she said. “I realized that more than a job and the salary, I wanted a family.” Kalton is now mother to two children: 25-year-old Chelsea and 22-year-old Tristan. Though the family calls Woodland Hills, Calif. home, she’s always tried to bring pieces of her Prior Lake upbringing to her parenting. “My son paid the price for it,” she said. “He was bullied. Starting in elementary school he was smart and he was nice, so he was bullied. He was too nice … It’s really hard to hang on to your roots and your foundation when the pressure is too much to do something else.” Kalton doesn’t come home regularly but has never forgotten the impact growing up in Prior Lake had on her. “It’s almost like the town itself was a backup family for me, to be honest with you. It’s amazing to have had a background like that,” she said, choking up. “It’s a special thing to come from a small town and have the town behind you.” While Kalton looks back fondly on her years in Prior Lake, she admits that there were difficult times. Her father, John, worked for the school district for 18 years, including four years as the

PLHS principal. The situation resulted in some perks, like getting things for her class faster, but there was also some “grief.” “I remember a teacher who was actually harder on me because of my dad,” Kalton said. “I had to be friendlier to kids … I didn’t drink, so that made me have to work a little harder.” Learning to juggle all her activities and commitments as a Laker has helped Kalton in her post-Prior Lake ventures. She and Brown have a production company, Chimere Inc., which includes Chalk Hill Books, a publishing arm. Kalton serves as Brown’s business manager, all while being wife and mother. When an earthquake struck the area in 1994 and wreaked $400,000 worth of damage on the family’s home, Kalton relied on her Laker background to survive. “That prepared me for all of that,” she said. Kalton said she has absolutely no regrets from her time in Prior Lake. “Look at what they gave to me,” she said. “How can you regret or be ungrateful for everything the high school and the town of Prior Lake gave to me? I can’t regret. I’m just grateful. Some really, really fine people there.”

Back packs can be a leading cause of back and shoulder pain for millions of children. The American Spine Foundation and the Minnesota Chiropractic Association just published a report on backpack safety. Here are their tips to preventing unnecessary wear and tear on a Dr. Watkins child’s growing spine. • Backpacks should have two wide, padded shoulder straps. Lugging a heavy pack by one strap can cause disproportionate stress on certain parts of the spine. • The backpack should never be wider or longer than your child’s torso. It should never hang more than four inches below the waistline, as it will cause the child to lean forward when walking. • Look for a backpack with a padded back, as it helps cushion and distribute the weight. • Backpacks with several compartments are best. Try to place the heaviest objects closest to your child’s body • A child should never carry more than 10% of their body weight. For example, a child who weighs 100 pounds shouldn’t carry a backpack heavier than 10 pounds. One third of our patients are children. If you are interested in a free back pack fitting for your child or a complimentary scoliosis check, please contact our office. *e-mail your questions to: staff@watkinsfamilychiropractic.com

“Do you need me? I am there. You cannot see me, yet I am the light you see by. You cannot hear me, yet I speak through your voice. You cannot feel me, yet I am the power at work in your hands. Only in absolute stillness, beyond self, can you know me as I am, and then as a feeling and a faith. Yet I am there. Yet I hear. Yet I answer. I am there when you pray and when you do not pray. I am in you and you are in me. I am in all. I am the law on which the movement of the stars and the growth of living cells are founded. I am the love that is the law’s fulfilling.” This poem and the excerpts in this article were written as if God was speaking to us. James Dillet Freeman, Unity’s former poet laureate, wrote it and it was taken to the moon on the Apollo XV voyage by Astronaut James B. Irwin. It was left there for future space voyagers. I was reminded of that poem as I watched the space shuttle, Atlantis, surge off the pad a few weeks ago. I was on vacation in South Dakota, watching the launch on a large overhead television in the breakfast room of a hotel. What a celebratory day with our four astronauts on the way to orbit. Here we were, watching history in the making. But there was sadness, too, as this was the end of our national space program. As I thought again of the poet’s words, I realized how much knowledge we have gained about the universe we live in, and how we have come to a profound understanding that God, the one presence and power of the universe, is all there is. God is everywhere and in everything – that includes

you and me. We see God so easily in nature but seem to have difficulty seeing God in ourselves and in each other. We forget that we are a microcosm of the macrocosm. Most theologies – Christian, Jewish, Buddhist and even the ancient Greek religion – tell us that the sacred can be found in the everyday experience of life. Christian theologians speak of the immanence of God – the sacred within us. On this wonderful little vacation, I became so aware of that. I also realized how much value there is in taking time away from the fast pace that many of us find ourselves caught up in. Vacations can be a time of relaxation, of looking at life with a fresh, new perspective and rediscovering ourselves. Driving through the Black Hills and the badlands, it wasn’t difficult to feel the presence of God emanating from the places that Native Americans hold sacred. These are consecrated places – 65 million years old. The Black Hills are like a verdant island rising up from a sea of prairie. These mountains are home to many species of wildlife that one delights in looking for and what a lovely surprise it is when some of these magnificent creatures are actually seen. In contrast to the Black Hills, the badlands look more like an eerie moonscape of deep gorges and jagged ridges

with rock layers painted in subtle hues of tan, rose, gold and green. Both of these natural wonders give one an undisturbed sense of quiet, holiness and peace. It feels as if one has a foot in two worlds – one in the inner blessing of our being and the other in the physical beauty around us. Both are deserving of our attention. These gorgeous places on our planet Earth are timeless. They are just as beautiful now as they were 45 years ago when we took our three children there. I felt that nothing in nature had changed, yet something had – it was me. Forty five years ago, I had no idea that God lived in me and in everyone, but I know it now. I didn’t have to go to a breathtaking spot to discover that, but, admittedly, it does come easier when one is taking in such grandeur. The task, when the vacation is over, is to take that understanding back home and transform the everyday life. The requirement is to know there is no more of God in a dedicated place of nature than there is on 35W at 5 p.m. Our entire lives are sacred wherever we are because God is wherever we are. Let us not wait until a vacation to know that this is so. Today is the day that we can awaken to our own beauty and to the God of our being. “I am the law that you can live by. I am the love that you can cling to. I am your peace. I am one with you. My faith in you never wavers, because I know you, because I love you. Beloved, I am there.” (Rev. Audrey Peterson is a pastor at Unity of the Valley Spiritual Center in Savage. She is one of several area pastors who write for “Spiritual Reflections,” a weekly column appearing in this newspaper.)

REGIONAL NEWS Residents struggle to understand plan for CR21/Arcadia BY LORI CARLSON editor@plamerican.com

About 35 residents â&#x20AC;&#x201C; many frustrated and some obviously angry â&#x20AC;&#x201C; attended an informational meeting on Tuesday (July 26) on the planned reconstruction of County Road 21 and Arcadia Avenue. A r c a d i a h a s lo n g b e e n pegged as the future full access into downtown Prior Lake off CR21. An extension of Arcadia south to Colorado Street, and a signal and turn lanes, are planned, with construction to begin as early as next spring. The cost is estimated at $ 3 million. Since 2003, county engineers and consultants have said Main

Avenue eventually will cease to function as a main entrance to downtown, as traffic stacks up from CR21â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nearby intersection with state Highway 13. But despite years of warnings, many residents arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t convinced the traffic will get as gridlocked as studies have claimed. A 2005 corridor study estimated traffic counts up to 30,000 cars per day on CR21 through downtown Prior Lake by the year 2030. Scott County Commissioner Barbara Marschall, who attended the meeting, said engineers and city leaders need to do a better job of explaining why Arcadia was chosen as the future access to downtown. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been ex-

plained well,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need to tell people what is the benefit, what the purpose of this is.â&#x20AC;? Marschall said from the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s perspective, safety is a major factor in adding a signal and turn lanes at Arcadia and CR21. Don Sterna, a project manager for WSB and Associates, which the city hired to do the fi nal intersection design, said Arcadia always has been the most obvious choice for full access to downtown Prior Lake when Main can no longer handle the traffic due to backups from the 13/21 intersection. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Arcadia has jumped out as the place where we want to put in a new intersection,â&#x20AC;? Sterna

said. â&#x20AC;&#x153; [ Engineers] studied where to logically place access points.â&#x20AC;? Sterna and City Engineer Larry Poppler explained that as traffic gets backed up at 13 and 21, Main Avenue also gets congested. Moving traffic further down 21 to Arcadia will allow downtown visitors access to both the north and south portions of downtown, Sterna said. Poppler said the new Arcadia intersection would â&#x20AC;&#x153;tie in wellâ&#x20AC;? with the proposed future median at 21 and Main. That median would prevent full access off 21, instead allowing only right turns onto Main off 21. Councilman Richard Keeney,

the only City Council representative at Tuesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s informational meeting, said itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not an ideal solution, but the Arcadia intersection plan is â&#x20AC;&#x153;the best option to solve our immediate problemâ&#x20AC;? of accommodating traffic and moving visitors into and out of downtown. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think anyone is saying this is the perfect solution, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the best solution weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got,â&#x20AC;? Keeney said. Premiere Dance Academy owner Dawn Schulberg was among those concerned about how a southern extension of Arcadia would affect traffic on Colorado Street. On any given day, hundreds of young dancers are dropped off and picked up by parents outside

As a you ng P rior La ke mom faces a second battle with brain cancer, her former teachers in the Prior LakeSavage Area School District are organizing a garage sale to raise money for her medical bills. Amber Wade, 25, who has a 4-year-old daughter, Emma, was first diagnosed with stage two Oligodendroglioma in 2009. Doctors told her that first tumor was inoperable because it was located in the part of her brain that controls motor skills. Removal would leave her paralyzed, or at the very least, blind. Instead, she underwent more than a year of aggressive chemotherapy that made her extremely ill. This spring, Wade learned she has another brain tumor, located near her brain stem. Doctors believe this one is operable, so Wade faces surgery and more chemotherapy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am so devastated,â&#x20AC;? Wade wrote in her Caring Bridge journal online. Wade also is falling behind on her rapidly-mounting medical bills, which already have topped $50,000. The garage sale is set for 8

Bowling, silent auction part of beneďŹ t for Buckner family The Buckner family of Shakopee is hosting the second annual â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pinning Down a Cure for HLHâ&#x20AC;? bowling and silent auction benefit Saturday, Aug. 6 at Louisville Lanes in Shakopee. T he b ene f it honor s t he Bucknerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s daughter, Abigail, who, at 2½, lost her life to hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (HLH), a rare disorder of the immune system primarily affecting young infants and children. There is little

research about HLH, which is considered an â&#x20AC;&#x153;orphan diseaseâ&#x20AC;? because it strikes too few people to generate government-supported research. All proceeds raised from Pinning Down a Cure for HLH will benefit Liamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lighthouse Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing support and education to patients and families dealing with histiocytic disorders in the United States. LLF funds numerous research grants in

her dance studios along Colorado Street. Just across the street is the Prior Lake VFW, which also brings traffic down that road. Throughout the informational meeting, many residents steered the conversation back to the overall plan for 21 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; city and county leaders have talked extensively about a realignment of 21 further south than its current position, which would take out 34 homes downtown and cost in excess of $20 million. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The people are very frustrated because they feel like t hey a renâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t bei ng listened to and that this is already a done deal,â&#x20AC;? said resident Liz Weninger.

hopes of fi nding better treatment options and a cure for this rare blood disease. The event runs from noon to 6:30 p.m. and costs $25 for adults and $15 for children 12 and under.

Bonding bill includes $1 million for Scott County training center Local school districts will have to borrow and Scott County taxes will probably go up to make up for state losses, but the Scott County Public Safety Training Center will receive another $1 million thanks to the special legislative session. Scott County, which has already received $2 million in state bonding for the center, sought an additional $2.2 million to fi nish the job, although there was no expectation it would come this year. The funding matched money the local community has invested in the training center, said Sen. Claire Robling, R-Jordan, who authored the request. As a compromise measure, legislators put together a lastminute $500 million bonding bill, which Gov. Mark Dayton

wanted for job creation. Robling said it was “a good bonding bill” focused on asset preservation – jobs that can also happen right away – and state projects, such as for the Department of Corrections and public universities. The thought was “we have to take care of what we have before we build new,” she said. The training center, which opened in 2008 at the old jail annex near Jordan, is owned by public safety departments in Carver and Scott counties but used by many agencies throughout the state. It provides a burn/tactical tower, driving range and shooting ranges for police and fi re departments. The funding will provide additional props, equipment and

training opportunities, said Scott County Administrator Gary Shelton. It was Scott County’s only bonding request. The bill also included $4.7 million for a regional 911 emergency communications center in Hennepin County and $ 3 million for an east metro safety training center. The original proposal for the center has been revised since it opened and continues to be revaluated, said facility director Mike Briese. Briese said a lot of agencies weren’t as fortunate as Scott County, and the center will work to spend the money judicially, surveying other agencies to determine what should be added next.

The Savage Police Department issued 43 citations and responded to 254 incidents between July 18 and July 25. Some of those included: ALCOHOL COMPLIANCE The Savage Police Department conducted alcohol compliance checks on nine Savage businesses on the afternoon of July 19. The businesses included Marketplace Liquor, Dan Patch Liquor, Kwik Trip, Rainbow Foods, Target, Cub Foods, SuperAmerica on Connelly Parkway, SuperAmerica on Boone Ave. and SuperAmerica on O’Connell Road. All nine passed the compliance check. BURGLARY On July 20, an employee of Concrete, Cutting and Coring Inc. on Creekview Avenue called to report that an unauthorized man had entered the business and was acting suspiciously. The caller had no suspect information as the incident happened the day before. The next day, the business called to report that four concrete cutoff saws valued at $775 each ($3,100 total) were stolen from the business overnight. On July 24, the business reported that 14 chainsaws ranging from $280 to $990 were stolen the night before. The total loss from the July 24 burglary was $7,800. The case is under investigation. CRASHES On July 24, a small fawn ran out into the road at Mccoll Drive and Quentin Avenue, and hit the passenger side of a vehicle. There was no damage to the vehicle and the 52-year-old driver was OK, and a possession tag was issued for the deceased deer. A 37-year-old Shakopee man called on July 23 to report that a curved metal object about six inches long flew up off the road and impaled the upper left corner of his windshield while he was driving westbound on County Road 42, just west of Highway 13. The object was believed to be a piece of an axel spring. DOMESTIC ASSAULT Police arrested a 27-year-old man from Savage in the 14100 block of Alabama Avenue after receiving a complaint from his girlfriend on July 21. The victim said the man pushed her down, attempted to push her down a flight of stairs, threw a bedroom door at her and threatened to kill her. DUI/DWI A 42-year-old man from Savage was arrested for fourth-degree DWI on July 24 after an officer observed him driving erratically on McColl Drive. The officer observed an odor of alcohol coming from the driver as well as other indicators of intoxication. The driver did poorly on field sobriety tests and was arrested. At the Savage police station, the man registered a .11 Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) and was then transported to Scott County Jail. While in jail, the man told officers he had a heart condition and needed to take his medication. The medication he had was in an unmarked container and officers could not identify the pills, so they transported him to St. Francis Hospital. He was treated and sent back to jail. On July 24, an officer received a tip from an off-duty officer about a vehicle

driving erratically. The officer located the vehicle on South Park Drive and initiated a stop. A 55-year-old man from Savage was driving the car, and the officer said there was an “overwhelming” odor of alcohol coming from the man. The man admitted to the officer that he had “way too much” to drink. The man completed one field sobriety test but refused the others and was arrested for suspicion of DWI. At the Savage police station, the man registered a .15 Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) and was cited for fourth-degree DWI. FRAUD A man from Chaska called on July 24 to report that his ex-girlfriend from Savage had pawned some of his belongings and opened a credit card in his name while he was in jail. Police were unable to connect the woman to the crimes. MISCHIEF On July 24, police received a report about a group of kids riding bikes in the 14300 block of Highway 13 S. and blowing an air horn. An officer caught up with the kids and advised them to stop. MISSING PERSON Police received a call on July 21 regarding a missing person. The woman said her husband went out for gas and hadn’t returned. The man eventually returned and said he stopped for a car wash and vacuumed out the interior of his car, taking longer than his wife expected. NARCOTICS On July 15, the Dakota County Drug Task Force conducted a search of a home in the 13200 block of Inglewood Avenue. They found methamphetamine paraphernalia, one gram of methamphetamine and documents. No one was arrested as the suspect was already in custody. On July 20, a 20-year-old Prior Lake man was pulled over on Highway 13 for failing to move over a lane to avoid a traffic stop, known as the Ted Foss Move Over Law, and for not wearing a seatbelt. When the officer approached the vehicle the officer detected the odor of marijuana. The man admitted to possessing a small amount of marijuana and drug paraphernalia. The man was cited for the drug paraphernalia and violating the Ted Foss Move Over Law, and was given a warning for the seatbelt and marijuana. PROPERTY DAMAGE On July 18, a man from the 5300 block of Egan Drive called to report that he believed some kids from his neighborhood had poured something on his flowers causing them to die. The man later decided he wanted to speak with the parents of the children first before pursuing the case further. ROAD RAGE A woman came to the Savage Police Department on July 21 to report an incident of road rage. She said that a

vehicle was tailgating her on Highway 13 when it entered the right lane to take a right turn on Highway 13. When the car turned, she said it made a very loud exploding noise causing her to have hearing loss. SOLICITORS On July 19, a 20-year-old woman was arrested for soliciting without a permit in the 13200 block of S. Webster Avenue after police received a complaint. On July 20, a man from Palmer, Alaska was cited for soliciting without a permit on W. 131 Street after officers received a complaint. On July 21, a 42-year-old man from Burnsville was cited for soliciting without a permit. Police had received a complaint from a business in the 8500 block of Highway 101 saying a man came into their business trying to sell them two home entertainment systems. The suspect and vehicle were gone by the time police arrived. Later that day, an officer pulled a vehicle over for speeding at Lynn Avenue and 126th Street. The vehicle matched the description and the suspect was in the passenger seat. The officer also saw the two home entertainment systems in the back seat. The suspect admitted to being at the business earlier and was cited for soliciting without a permit after providing proof that the items he was trying to sell were not stolen. THEFT A man from Savage called the police department on July 18 to report that an iPod valued at $100 and a GPS valued at $150 were taken from his vehicle parked overnight in the 7500 block of Arbor Lane. In addition to the items stolen, his car was “keyed” with an expletive carved into the exterior, and his seats were slashed. The victim believes the perpetrator was a man who was upset that the victim was dancing with his wife at the Lakefront Jazz and Blues Festival, but he did not know the identity of the man. Also on July 18, a woman from Savage called to report that a vehicle parked in her driveway in the 8800 block of Carriage Hill Road had been rummaged through. She said that a $400 digital camera was taken and an older model iPod valued at $150 was found smashed on her front steps. A female employee of Eagle Ridge Junior High called on July 19 to report that her cell phone, valued at $200, was stolen while she was at the school. There are no suspects. Police are investigating a report of several thefts occurring at a home in the 14900 block of Valley View Drive between January and July of this year. The resident said jewelry and prescription medication was taken. On July 21, a woman from Savage reported that someone stole her wallet while she went inside to pay for her gas at BP on Highway 13. The estimated loss is $55. Cub Foods on Highway 13 reported a shoplifting incident on July 21. The man tried to make off with $156 worth of Gillette razors and more than $600 worth of razor cartridges. The man is being investigated for similar incidents in Ramsey County.

that a grease fire on the stove had set the alarms off. The fire had been put out and firefighters assisted in getting the rest of the smoke out of the home.

Defense, prosecutor argue over upward sentence in murder case Maddox cruelty, concealment cited by county attorney BY SHANNON FIECKE sfiecke@swpub.com

Was Charles Anthony “Tony” Maddox Jr. exceptionally cruel in the manner in which he killed his estranged wife, Shakopee Valley News reporter Ruth Anne Maddox, amid their bitter divorce in November 2008? Scott County District Court Judge Jerome Abrams will wrestle with that question as he considers prosecutors’ request that he sentence Maddox to a prison term longer than the state sentencing guidelines recommend for second-degree

murder. The Scott County Attorney’s Office is seeking an upward departure of up to 40 years, also because of a purported lack of remorse and because Maddox tried to conceal his crime. State sentencing guidelines for second-degree murder call for a prison term ranging from nearly 22 years to about 30½ years. (A defendant can be granted supervised release after serving two-thirds of the sentence). Prosecutors say Maddox was particularly cruel with how he killed Ruth Anne Maddox and how he treated her body afterward, initially stuffi ng her upside down into a garbage can. Her face became so discolored it was unrecognizable. The Prior Lake woman died of blunt force injuries to her

head and neck. Her neck was likely crushed by a door and she was not able to breathe in the last minutes of her life, according to testimony from last month’s trial. Maddox, 47, who claimed self-defense, is scheduled to be sentenced at 8:30 a.m. Aug. 17 in Scott County District Court. He was convicted by a jury in June. Defense attorney Frederic Bruno argued Monday that this is a case of “manual homicide.” He said there is no evidence Maddox tortured his wife or was especially gratuitous. “The death was quick,” Bruno said. Abrams must also decide whether the steps Maddox took to conceal his crime call for a heftier sentence.

The Academy is a sevenweek program offering community members a chance to experience police situations. Class simu lations include

In response to Assistant County Attorney Neil Nelson’s assertion that Maddox should be punished further for a lack of remorse, Bruno said that would mean a defendant is penalized for maintaining his innocence at trial. Bruno said Maddox was very upset when he testified and accepted responsibility that he killed his wife. (Maddox claimed self-defense). Bruno argued prosecutors shouldn’t be allowed to seek an upward departure without having previously charged Maddox with additional crimes. He added that lying isn’t a crime. “You assail the fact that the state is even able to do this,” Abrams said, pointing out that the rules regarding state and federal guidelines differ. “They

can do this. It’s the law, and I’ll follow the law.” Bruno also pointed out there is plenty of leeway – 106 months – within the state sentencing guidelines range. Abrams denied the defense motion that the request for upward departure was unconstitutional. He also denied Bruno’s motion for a judgment of acquittal. Abrams mentioned that he disagreed with one of the prosecution’s earlier rationale for an upward departure – that the murder violated a relationship of trust. “I don’t see that at all,” he said. “It’s not parent-child. This was an adult relationship.” Sh ann on Fi e cke c an be reached at (952) 345 -6679 or sfiecke@swpub.com.

According to testimony, Maddox left misleading voice mail and text messages after killing his wife and drove her car to the airport dressed as a woman to make it look like she fled the state. He scrubbed the couple’s townhome and had his truck backed into the garage where her body lay wrapped in a tarp, when police showed up with a search warrant. A to-do list found in his pocket contained kerosene and wood. Bruno said concealment cases involve moving the body to a different location. He argued the body was left at the scene of the crime. Abrams responded that the scene of crime was inside the house. “That body was moved purposefully,” the judge said.

Tweed sentenced in sexual assault

Two adults from Savage and one juvenile have been charged in the July 21 assault and robbery of a 17-year-old boy from Savage. According Tadrick to the comTate pl a i nt , T ad rick Tate, 18, Chanell Polk, 20, and a juvenile suspect entered the home of the victim’s friend in the 4100 block of McColl Drive on July 21. The Chenel three suspects Polk and the victim were in one of the bedrooms when the victim left to use the bathroom. The friend of the victim was not in the bedroom at the time. While the victim was in the bathroom, the juvenile suspect

allegedly told Tate and Polk that he was going to rob the victim, and that if he started losing, he wanted them to help. When the victim returned, the juvenile suspect allegedly punched him in the face, knocking him to the ground, then continued punching him in the facial area. Tate then began punching the victim in the ribs until Polk allegedly removed items from the victim’s pockets, including an iPod Touch and $23 in cash. The victim left the residence, and the juvenile suspect followed him out, yelling things at him in an attempt to antagonize him. The friend of the victim said he saw the juvenile suspect follow the victim outside and said he saw the juvenile suspect in possession of the victim’s iPod Touch and cash. After riding home on his bike, the victim then went to the police station with his mother to report the crime. When police arrived at the residence, Tate answered the door. Tate was immediately arrested, and police received permission from the homeowner to search his son’s bedroom. In the bedroom, police recovered the victim’s Minnesota Twins hat that had fallen off during the alleged beating, as well as paperwork that he had left there. Polk and the juvenile suspect were also arrested. Tate admitted to police that he was one of the parties involved in the robbery. Polk said she knew the robbery happened, but wasn’t in the room at the time. She also told police regarding the stolen items, “(The juvenile suspect) has it.” Police were unable to receive a statement from the juvenile suspect. Polk has been charged with aiding and abetting first degree aggravated robbery, and Tate has been charged with firstdegree aggravated robbery and fi fth-degree assault.

Scent

Details matter

Whether they know it or not, people entering your home will notice more than just appearances. Attractive scents can create good feelings. Candles, diffusers, potpourri and cookies all offer inviting and familiar aromas. Use a cleaner with a pleasant scent to keep your home smelling fresh.

Eliminate any small imperfections that might cause uneasiness with potential buyers by replacing broken light bulbs, fi xing loose doorknobs or getting your closet door moving smoothly on it tracks. Even something as minor as a little mess in the microwave could turn off a prospective renter or buyer,

Ky l e G r a y l i n g T w e e d , who was convicted in May of third-degree criminal sexual conduct, was sentenced to 58 months, 38 2/3 of which will be served in prison, and 19 1/3 of which will be served on supervised release.

Three charged in aggravated robbery

Schmitz charged in high-speed chase A 19-year-old Lakeville man has been charged after leading police on a high-speed chase through three different cities on his motorcycle. On July 2 0 at about 3 : 25 p.m., a Prior Lake police officer clocked Aaron Schmitz going 136 mph on his motorcycle on County Road 42, a 55 mph zone. The officer signaled for Schmitz to stop, but instead Schmitz made a U-turn around the officer and began going eastbound on County Road 42. The officer then also made a U-turn and began to catch up with Schmitz. Schmitz looked over his shoulder then accelerated even more, pulling farther away from the officer. Schmitz was driving down the center white line in fairly heavy traffic, causing vehicles to pull to the side of the road. Schmitz then went through a red light at County Road 42 and Highway 13 in Savage. Savage police then began pursuing Schmitz. After going through another red light and nearly causing an accident, Schmitz arrived at Buck Hill Road in Burnsville where he hit a curb and was thrown into a grassy area. Schmitz got up and proceeded to flee on foot to a wooded area. Schmitz eventually tried to hide under a deck at an apartment building, then tried to run up a hill until he fell and slid down it. Schmitz was then arrested and taken to Fairview Ridges Hospital in Burnsville where he received stitches for his right elbow. He was then transported to Scott County Jail. Schmitz has been charged with fleeing a peace officer in a motor vehicle and reckless or careless driving. Compiled by Alex Hall

Selling? Try these tips for making your home more attractive

F

irst impressions are important and the same holds true when you are showcasing your home for a potential sale. While larger home improvement projects are often necessary to catch the eye of someone in the market for a new home, they require a great deal of time and money. Sometimes simple cleaning and organization is all that is needed to appeal to potential buyers. Home staging expert and TLC host Lisa Lynch says giving the perception of a clean home is of utmost importance for people looking to sell or rent their homes. “Presenting a sparkling clean property gives the impression that it was well maintained,” says Lynch. “This gives potential buyers and renters a feeling of security. Often they will pay a premium for a place that has been well-maintained and has a clean appearance.” Lynch offers these tips to impress your guests and convince potential buyers

that you took outstanding care of your home.

Simplify Begin by de-cluttering your home. By removing personal items that might distract prospective buyers, you’ll help them focus on how they think the home might look when they move in.

Neutralize When showing your home to others, set your personal tastes aside by decorating in a way that will appeal to a broad range of people. Think about replacing strong patterns with solid colors on items like bedding, carpets and drapes. It might also be a good call to store that dramatic piece of art somewhere out of sight. You can show it off again when you move into your new house.

A photogenic home Many potential buyers will make decisions on which homes they would like to look at by looking at photos posted online. Do whatever you can to make your home sparkle in the images you and your real estate agent select for

your listing. Focus on glass and metal surfaces that will add shine to your photos. For other bathroom surfaces, a bath scrubber like Mr. Clean Magic Eraser Bath Scrubber should be used to remove easy-to-spot and unappealing grime and scum from bathtubs and showers. Thoroughly cleaning these surfaces in bathrooms and kitchens can make your home look fresher and newer.

Areas that must sparkle While it is important to keep the entire home spotless, there are two rooms in particular that require special attention: the kitchen and the bathroom. In a recent survey, Mr. Clean asked consumers which room they would clean first if moving into a new home. Of the more than 1,000 participants, an impressive 41 percent responded the kitchen and 38 percent said the bathroom. When selling your home, it is always important to make the extra effort in these two rooms; you’ll never know if it will be a make or break a deal.

so make sure every place you can think of is squeaky clean. Since first impressions are so important, having your home properly cleaned and staged will help you make a sale or rental more quickly and net the price you deserve.

HIKERS HELD IN IRAN

Shakopee dad awaits word on son as trial is set in Iran BY KRISTIN HOLTZ kholtz@swpub.com

On the day marking their two-year anniversary in an Iranian prison, two American hikers will finally get their day in court. A Sunday, July 31 trial date was set for Shane Bauer and Josh Fattal, according to their attorney Masoud Shafii. Bauer and Fattal were arrested July 31, 2009, with Bauer’s fiancée Sarah Shourd, after allegedly crossing the Iranian border while hiking in northern Iraq. Bauer, 29, the son of Sand Creek Township resident Al Bauer, and Fattal, 29, remain in prison while Shourd was released on bail. “It’s been a hard two years,” Al Bauer said Monday. “We’re just kind of waiting and hoping that this will be over.” Iran has charged the hikers with crossing the border illegally and accused them of espionage. The families, however, say the trio accidentally crossed the border while vaca-

tioning in Iraqi Kurdistan. “It’s weird to say after two years that it still feels unreal,” Shane’s youngest sister, Shannon, said by phone Thursday. “None of our lives have been the same since before this started. It’s a part of our life every single day.” In September, Shourd was released on $500,000 bail. Last month, she told BBC about physic a l abu se f rom Evi n Prison guards. She said she feared the three were going to be executed shortly after their arrest when a guard began cocking his weapon. “My worst fear is that they’re not safe, especially when we haven’t seen them for so long,” Shourd, 32, told BBC Persian TV’s Enayat Fani. “There are months at a time where they don’t see anyone from the outside world. They don’t have consular access, they’re not allowed to see their lawyer, and we fear the worst.” A trial hearing had been set for Bauer and Fattal May 11, but they were not brought to court. Iranian authorities did

not explain their absence. “We are outraged that Shane and Josh continue to be arbitrarily detained and have been physically mistreated,” the mothers said in a June statement. “It now seems that after nearly two years of denying our sons due process, the Iranian judicial authorities want to conclude a trial. The least those authorities can do in the meantime is release Shane and Josh into the care of the Swiss Embassy. They’ve done that in many cases involving foreign nationals and there is no reason they cannot do it again.” Al Bauer has spoken to his son only once in the past two years — an April 2010 phone call. Shane’s mother, Cindy Hickey of Pine City, Minn., last communicated with her son about two months ago, Al said. “Everything has been quiet, so we don’t know what’s going on right now,” Al said. “We’re praying and hoping everything is going to go right and this will end here this weekend before the Ramadan starts (Aug. 1).”

Shane Bauer is shown in a family photo held by his father, Al Bauer. “I feel there’s no way this can keep going on,” said Shannon, who lives in Boulder, Colo. “There’s just no justifiable reason to hold them.” Bauer, a freelance photojournalist, and Shourd, a teacher of English, were living in Damascus, Syria, at the time of their vacation. Fattal, an environmental advocate, was visiting them. Al Bauer attended a peace rally for the hikers on Friday in front of the Iranian Mission to the United Nations in New York City. The waiting and lack of control has been really wearing

Shane Bauer, 29, has been in an Iranian prison for two years after being arrested for illegally crossing the border from northern Iraq. He’s had little contact with his family, including father, Al, who lives in Sand Creek Township or his many aunts, uncles and cousins in the Shakopee, Jordan and Prior Lake area. on the Bauer family, Al said. Shannon agreed, saying it’s hard to prepare for Sunday’s trial knowing there have been so many unexpected postponements since Shane’s 2009 arrest. Still, she hopes the Iranian

court system will fi nally bring a conclusion to her family’s long ordeal yet this weekend. “I’ll either be celebrating Sunday or just having a really hard time,” she said. “I would love to be traveling anywhere to see Shane.”

Defendant gets 22-year sentence for 2010 murder Iracheta maintains stabbing death was in self-defense BY SHANNON FIECKE Staff Writer

Jorge Carranza Iracheta says he accepts responsibility

for murdering Coon Rapids teenager Lucio Lopez Jr., but still feels he was acting in selfdefense in the knife fight that killed Lopez one summer ago. “I regret what I did, but what I feel is I was protecting my own life,” the 21-year-old Shakopee man told Scott County District Court Judge Diane Hanson on Friday morning. “I am truly

sorry for what I did. His family and my family are paying for this. I want to pay for my mistake.” Iracheta used his mother’s kitchen knife to fatally stab Lopez to death in the courtyard of Hunters Ridge Apartments in June 2010. He and two other Shakopee youths got into a confrontation with Lopez and

another young man – who affiliated with a different gang – for hanging out at the apartment complex. Iracheta, who left an apology letter to the Lopez family in his jail cell, was sentenced to nearly 22 years for second-degree murder – as worked out in the plea agreement that averted a jury trial. He could be released

after serving two-thirds of his sentence and was given credit for 400 days in jail. Brothers Jonathon and Jeison Quiroz had also chased after Lopez and his friend into the courtyard, which was a dead end, after Lopez flashed a gang symbol. Lopez died at the scene and the other four were treated for cuts.

Iracheta was the only member of his group to use a knife and the last of three defendants to plead guilty Jonat han Quiroz, 21, w h o h e l p e d Jorge Carranza instigate the Iracheta con f lict a nd admitted kicking and punching Lopez, was sentenced in March to 14 years in prison. His younger brother Jeison, who was 17 at the time of the fight, swung and missed. He received 12½ years. Assistant Scott County Attorney Michael Groh on Friday called it a “truly senseless crime.” He told the judge Carranza was still blaming Lopez’s death on some girl bringing Lopez to the apartment grounds when they “should have known it was Latin Kings territory.” Hanson called it a “tragic case for everyone involved.” Lopez’s family did not attend the sentencing but asked that a letter be read to the court. “We can’t imagine what went through Jorge Luis Carranza’s head when he took our son’s life away. We always go to the grave and we ask ourselves why? There is so much pain that nothing can ever replace his existence in our lives,” wrote Angelie Lopez. “The pain has not healed in our hearts and there is nothing that can repair our family. We have lived many moments that we wished he was here alive with us, like the birth of our son Abisai. Lucio always wanted to know whether it was a boy or girl. He never got to find out.” Carranza’s mother cried throughout the sentencing. She has been working two jobs to pay for a private attorney who failed to show for the hearing and sent a substitute, unfamiliar with the case, late to the sentencing. “ T here a re no wi n ners here,” said Ha nson. “ T his shows what happens when people allow gang or mob mentality to pervert their choices and actions.” The judge said she can only hope the sentence provides a measure of justice for Lopez and his family. She said she also believes in redemption, and told Carranza he can honor Lopez’s life “by making a positive change in yours.” S h a n n on F i e c k e c an b e reached at (952) 345 -6679 or sfiecke@swpub.com.

Elite company Two Burnsville skaters selected for the Elite League BY TOM SCHARDIN tschardin@swpub.com

The Burnsville boys hockey team will have to skaters competing in the Upper Midwest High School Elite League. One has been an established member of the Blaze varsity the past two seasons. The other is an up-andcoming talent. Senior Cory Chapman and sophomore Tyler Sheehy will play for Team Southeast, joining eight other players from the South Suburban Conference on that squad, including six from Eagan. The Elite League’s season begins in early September and runs through early November with the playoffs. It’s comprised of many of the top players in the state with some of the state’s top coaches, while it also attracts a

Chapman will be entering his third varsity season for the Blaze this winter. He’s proven to be a top-notch goal scorer who has good instincts

around the net, as well as playmaking ability. Last season, the 5 -foot-10 -inch forward was second on the Blaze in scoring with 50 points (22 goals and 28 assists), helping the team win the conference title with a 15-1-2 mark. Burnsville fi nished 19-5-4 overall, coming up a game short of the Class AA state tournament. The Blaze lost 3-2 to Edina in the Section 2AA title game. As a sophomore, Chapman tallied 10 goals and added 12 assists in 27 games for the Blaze. Meanwhile, Sheehy hasn’t played a varsity game for Burnsville yet – not even junior varsity. But his talents are cer tain ly being noticed. He was regarded as one the top players in the state last year playing for the Burnsville Bantam A squad. Sheehy, a forward, is one of seven

“Darwin Busselman is the face of baseball in Prior Lake. When people think about baseball in our town, they think of Buff.” That’s what Scott Geisler said about Busselman on a nomination form for consideration for induction into the Minnesota State High League (MSHSL) Hall of Fame. Geisler was a long-time assistant coach for Busselman. Busselman is already in the MSHSL Baseball Coaches Association Hall of Fame, getting inducted in 2007. And now the long-time Prior Lake coach will be inducted into the Laker Hall of Fame. The banquet is set for Wednesday, Aug. 3 in the Fong’s Event Center in downtown Prior Lake starting at 5:30 p.m. Bussel ma n’s 19 8 4 squad is also being honored at the banquet as this year’s “Team of Distinction.” Busselman won 535 career games (335 losses) in his long Lakers’ career, coaching in six different decades (1969-2010). He ranks fourth on the all-time wins list in Minnesota. He’s one of only six baseball coaches to have won 500-plus games. Busselman was a lso the head football coach at Prior Lake from 1970 to 1981 and was an assistant coach for 17 years,

Busselman in his Hall of Fame coaching career was winning a section/region title. In his final two seasons he came close, losing to Eden Prairie in the Section 2AAA title game in both 2009 and 2010. Busselman’s teams won 22 Missota Conference titles in his tenure. He was named conference coach of the year 11 times and was the Dick Siebert Award winner in 2006. In 1984, Busselman was the Region 2 Coach of the Year. That was a magical season for the Lakers. The team went 14-0 in league play and won the sub-section title, before losing 2-0 to Waseca in the regional tourney. Busselman had six Lakers earn all-conference honors that year – Kirk Loehr, Scott Gleason, Tim Hanson, Chris Shimek, Chris Rooney and Eric Lindstrom – and two were honorable mention (Faue and Brad

When Jane Duvall found out she was part of the 2011 Laker Hall of Fame class, she was surprised and flattered. “I immediately thought about several other people I know who also graduated from Prior Lake who probably deserved it more than I do for things they’ve accomplished beyond high school and college,” said Duvall, a 1992 graduate. “But I’m honored to be considered for this nonetheless.” The Laker Hall of Fame banquet is set for Wednesday, Aug. 3 in the Fong’s Event Center in downtown Prior Lake starting at 5:30 p.m. Duvall is Jane’s married name. In high school, she went by Richards and she was a three-sport star. She won the Athena Award her senior year (a state award recognizing each school’s most outstanding female athlete), before moving on to have a successful Division track career at Marquette University. Her best sport was track. She took second at state in the discus in her senior year at Prior Lake with a toss of 130 feet, 3 inches. She was fi fth in the shot put (39-8).

He had a career record of 57-52, winning three conference crowns. He retired from teaching in 2004. Greg Faue, who played on the Lakers’ 1984 team, said Busselman taught his players more than just the basics of baseball. “Buff was a good coach,” said Faue, who is the long-time manager for the Prior Lake Mudcats, the Class C amateur team in town. “He believed in the players and he knew talent. “After you left high school and remembered what he had taught you, you were more thankful for playing for him,” added Faue. “A lot of guys are now friends of coach Busselman because he taught you a bit about life as well as baseball. Buff wasn’t afraid to get on you, but you usually knew where you stood with him.” The only thing that escaped

The Savage Outlaws have pretty much had their way this summer with the competition. Now playoff time is here and what has been accomplished in the regular season doesn’t matter much anymore. It’s all about getting to the Class B state tournament. The Outlaws took a 2 9 -3 record into their fi nal regular season game Friday (results not available at press time) at Austin. Savage won t he Ca n non Va l ley Leag ue for the second straight year with an 11-0 mark, following a 6-1 win over Lakeville North July 26 and a 13-1 drubbing of Eagan the day before. The Outlaws had their 13game win streak snapped July 21, falling 6-5 at Chaska in a non-league game. Savage followed with a 2-0 win at Miesville the next night. In Section 4B play, the Outlaws went 9-0 following their 10-4 home win over the Prior Lake Jays July 27. The Section 4B tournament starts Sunday, July 31 and one team has already been eliminated. Inver Grove Heights disbanded, so Rosemount, Prior Lake and Savage are left and two teams will move on to the Super Sections, which are Aug. 12-14. Prior Lake and Rosemount will play a best-of-three series with the winner earning a spot in the Super Sections. Therefore, Savage is already in. The Outlaws will take on the winner of the Prior LakeRosemount series Aug. 5 to determine the Section 4B winner and runner-up. The Super Sections feature the top two teams from the eight sections in the state. The four sites are Dundas, Miesville, Chaska and Cold Spring and each is a four-team doubleelimination tournament. The eight section winners are seeded one through eight, while the eight section runnerups have already been pre-seeded. The Section 4B runner-up will be the No. 10 seed for the Super Sections and will play the No. 7 seed in the fi rst round at a site still to be determined. Super Section seeds come out Aug. 7. The top two teams from each site will qualify for state, which begins Aug. 19 in the towns of Brownton, Glencoe and Hutchinson.

Tight night on the track

Prior Lake girls tennis meeting slated

Driver’s patience keys win in the Super Late Models feature BY JIM BURNS Correspondent

Lonsdale’s Adam Royle patiently worked forward from his sixth starting position to win the Super Late Models feature July 23, highlighting a tight night of racing at Elko Speedway. Royle overtook Nick Murgic of Rosemount following a 24thlap restart to claim the 40-lap feature. Racing action is continuing today (Saturday, July 30). For more, go to www.elkospeedway. com or call (952) 461-7223. Other feature winners July 23 included: Jonny Hentges of Jordan in Big 8s, Adam Wiebusch of Shakopee in Thunder Cars, Dirk Henry of Sauk Center in Legends, Aaron Hopkins of Burnsville in Mini Stocks and Darren Walterman of Webster in Power Stocks. Meanwhile, Murgic powered around pole-sitter Brian Johnson to take the early lead with Steve Anderson third and Royle working around Conrad Jorgenson to join the top four. As Murgic held a three-car length advantage over Johnson, Royle closed on Anderson to take third on lap eight with Donny Reuvers and Jason Schneider also on the move. As the action approached the midpoint, Johnson pulled even with Murgic looking to his inside for the lead, but couldn’t make the pass. Royle motored up on Johnson driving to his outside off of turn two to take second on lap 22 before the caution flew on lap 24. On the restart, Murgic took off at the drop of the green and quickly established a four-car length lead, but a determined Royle ran his quickest laps of the race in tracking down the leader, getting a huge run off of turn two on lap 30 in taking the lead. Jason Schneider and Paul Paine dropped Johnson to fi fth. Over the final 10 laps, Royle ran untouched to the checkers. I n Big 8s, Ryan K amish charged around the pole-sitter (Hentges) to take the early lead

with Dylan Moore and Prior Lake drivers Doug Brown and Travis Stanley able to work under Nick Beaver on successive laps to join the top five by lap 10 of 25. As Kamish continued to show the way in his best run of the year, Darren Wolke and Beaver came in contact exiting turn two to bring out the caution on lap 12. After a quick reline, Kamish again took the point as Hentges looked to his inside with Moore and Brown battling side-by-side for third. Hentges persistence paid off on lap 21 as he ducked under Kamish to take the lead and then the list of challengers quickly changed on lap 22. Kamish got loose in turn two, forcing Brown to check up and allowing Moore, Stanley and Adam Simon to move to second through fourth. Over the final three laps, Moore caught Hentges and the tandem traded paint and the lead with Hentges getting clear out of turn four to earn the win, with Stanley grabbing second as Moore did a remarkable job of saving his ride to earn third after contact with the eventual winner. In the Thunder Cars, the fans were treated to an awesome battle as young lions Michael Homan and Adam Wiebusch pushed each other to the limit over the fi rst 10 laps in a great side-by-side duel for the lead with Brent Kane and Ted Reuvers working by Dillon Sellner for third and fourth on lap seven. Wiebusch finally ducked under Homan on lap 13 for the lead, while Reuvers moved by Kane to third on lap 16. The fun was just starting however as Homan returned the favor to Wiebusch, retaking the lead on lap 20 before a 23rd-lap caution slowed the action as Greg Borchardt turned Dan Weber in turn two. On the restart, Homan powered to the point, but got loose exiting turn four as the white flew, with Wiebusch wasting no time in taking the lead en route to his fi rst Thunder Car win.

More of the same on oval Royle gets best of Walen again MICK ANDERSON Correspondent

Adam Royle is on a roll. The driver from Lonsdale had the fastest qualifying time, won his heat and went on to win his sixth Super Late Model feature of the season July 25 at Raceway Park. It was the third straight week Royle won the 25-lap main event with Chad Walen of Prior Lake finishing second. Royle went into the night with a one-point lead over Walen in the points standings. He now leads by three points. Donny Reuvers is a distant third in points with 810, 47 behind Royle. Rick Burns of Vesel is fourth (730) and Mark Lamoreaux of Bloomington is fi fth (708). Royle and Walen will continue their season-long battle Sunday, July 31 with racing action starting at 6 p.m. For more, go to www.goracewaypark.org or call (952) 445-2257. Royle has won six of the last eight Super Late Model main events, while Walen has fi nished third three times, to go along with his two wins and fourth third-place showings. Other feature winners July 24 included: Shawn Evans of Northfield in Bombers, Brent Kane of Lonsdale in Hobby Stocks, Tony Hallberg of Shakopee in Mini Stocks, Keith Paulsrud of Rogers in Short

T racker s, To dd Wi l son of Burnsville in the fi rst Figure 8s feature and Ricky Martin in the second one. Starting third in a 10-car field, Royle jumped into first on the second lap and led the rest of the way in the caution-free 30 lapper. Walen did his best to close the gap with Royle, but to no avail. Meanwhile, two other drivers – Kane and Evans – scored their fifth feature wins of the year. Kane used the outside groove to perfection to pass the nine drivers that started ahead of him. Pole-sitter Bryan Turtle led the first 14 laps and finished second just ahead of Bill Woodworth, Dillon Sellner and Luke Schmitt. The other five time feature winner, Evans, didn’t know he won until after the face. The winner was disqualified for a technical violation. In Figure 8s, Wilson earned his second win of the year, while Martin became the first driver at Raceway Park to win seven features this season. In Mini Stocks, Hallberg got his first feature win of the year following a furious finish with the top-five cars all bunched together. Twenty-eight cars took the green flag and a remarkable twenty-five completed the 20-lapper. Rylee Michaelson, the only woman in the field, finished seventh after starting fi fth, her best showing of the year.

ArtStock of Carver County makes its splash from 2 to 7 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 6, at Deardorff Orchards and Winery at Parley Lake, near Waconia. It’s an afternoon of celebrating the fruits of local artists, musicians and wine makers in an outdoor setting. Artists will display and sell their work in booths scattered around the expansive yard of the winery and apple orchards at Deardorffs. Art includes watercolor, ceramics, photography, fiber arts, woodwork in furniture and marquettry, and local authors. Parley Lake Winery will open for wine tasting and sampling. The event also highlights the Carver County Barn Quilt project. The Carver County Barn Quilt project is a modern twist to the traditional quilting bee. Earlier this summer, volunteers recreated traditional quilt block designs on 8 ft. x 8 ft. wood panels. These art square panels will be installed on selected barns throughout Carver County, honoring both the quintessential symbol of Carver County’s farming heritage, the family barn, and the time-honored symbol of hearth and home, the heirloom quilt. The very first quilt block will be unveiled at ArtStock at the Aug. 6 festival.

Barn owners Lin and Bonnie Deardorff chose the “Tree of Life” pattern block, an apt symbol for the longtime apple orchard owners. In 2005, the Deardorffs along with Deb and Steve Zeller of Victoria began Parley Lake Winery, planting vineyards next to the apple orchards. Their collaboration has created a line of wines that have won medals in the prestigious International Cold Climate Wine Competition (ICCC). The official kick-off to the Barn Quilts of Carver County project coincides with the Carver County Fair, which opens in Waconia on Wednesday, Aug. 10. In addition to visibility at the fair, the public can take a selfguided driving tour of all the barn quilt locations, and for armchair tourists, a virtual tour will be available on the Barn Quilt website, www. barnquiltsofcarvercounty.com. In the past two months, volunteers have been painting the quilt blocks at Suzanne Thiesfeld’s art studio in Carver. More than 50 area people have participated. The Barn Quilt project is one that has become popular throughout the Midwest in recent years. It originated in Ohio, then spread to Iowa, Illinois, Tennessee, and Wisconsin. According to the Barn Quilts of Carver County website, a woman named Donna Sue Groves of Adams County, Ohio, painted the first barn quilt square on her family’s tobacco barn to honor her mother, a master quilter. Since then, fans of quilting, folk art and rural life have made the project their own. It’s estimated that 1,500 painted quilt squares are displayed on barns in 24 states.
