VALLEY City site proposed for Vikes stadium Local officials behind effort BY SHANNON FIECKE sfiecke@swpub.com

As other proposals for a new Vikings stadium faced increasing scrutiny and the governor put out a Thursday deadline for all plans, Shakopee’s new Mayor Brad Tabke made a call to SavetheVikes.org founder Cory Merrifield. Two days

later a plan was hatched to bring the Vikings to Shakopee. On Saturday, the pair huddled over a table at Perkins Restaurant for hours with the local Chamber of Commerce president, Assistant Senate Majority Leader Claire Robling of Jordan and Rep. Michael Beard of Shakopee. On Wednesday, the group unveiled its plan to locate a 75,000seat stadium on the 130-acre site kitty-corner from Valleyfair that contains the shelved ADC Telecommunications building.

“Everyone thinks we’re too late in the game, but once we started looking at it and got into the fi ne details, it made a lot of sense,� Tabke told the Valley News. “Six million people come to Shakopee every year and we handle all those people with ease.� Mot hba l led si nc e 2 0 01, t he 490,000-square-foot building, constructed for ADC Telecommunications, was never completed when the company underwent bankruptcy.

Shakopee firefighters gather at the downtown station before drill Monday night. They’ll soon move their gear and trucks to the new station near Lions Park.

For sale: City fire station Could proceeds go toward senior center funding? With a kitchen, lounge and exercise room, would the downtown fi re station make a good temporary home for a senior center? Shakopee City Councilor Jay Whiting thinks so, since the station is near the Eagle Creek Quilt Shop and across the street from Loaves and Fishes, a free community dinner program at St. Mark’s Catholic Church that draws many older residents. In a few weeks, fi refighters will move from the 10,816-square-foot building at the corner of Second Avenue and Scott Street and into a new station on Vierling Drive, near Lions Park. (The department’s 12-year-old headquarters is also located on Vierling Drive, but in the central part of town.) City councilors last week discussed what to do with the fi re sta-

tion once it’s empty, agreeing to put the building up for sale. If sold, they hinted t hat perhaps t he funds could be directed toward the construction of a senior center at the Shakopee Community Center. Steve An appraiser reClay cently valued the 57-year-old station at $585,000, although it’s to be seen whether the building could actually fetch that. The estimate is far more accurate, however, than the $1.5 million value assessed by the county (which was based on the station’s replacement value.) Assistant City Administrator Kris Wilson suggested the city either sell the building or use it for a specific purpose, most likely a senior center.

Whiting — noting that a permanent senior center should eventually be built at the Community Center — preferred a feasibility study to consider such an alternative use. “The economy right now for selling that property— I don’t think you could get that appraised value,� Whiting said. But Councilor Steve Clay noted the downtown station isn’t centrally located for a senior center and lacks street parking. He suggested the city try selling the station prior to considering other uses. “Throw it on eBay or something, a few ads in the local newspaper,� said Clay. “Try that for a few months and see if anything happens. If in six or eight months that doesn’t seem to be working, then it’s time to think more about putting it to other uses or hiring professional real estate

Shakopee to open own alternate learning center BY KRISTIN HOLTZ kholtz@swpub.com

When Shakopee Public Schools returns for class next fall, Pearson Sixth-Grade Center won’t be the only new building. The School Board voted Monday to form a district committee to plan for a Shakopee Area Learning Center. School administration will notify the Carver-Scott Educational Cooperative of its plans to end its area learning center agreement and form its own ALC. The board began talking about forming its own ALC in December after being notified that Eastern Carver County District 112 and Waconia School District plan to withdraw from the CSEC, which runs four

Per state law, coopMary erative members’ Romansky districts must offer positions to cooperative employees when their program is eliminated due to its withdrawal.

The new-look Shakopee School Board didn’t waste time Monday jumping into its first major issue of 2012: where to draw a line that will split the district in two. Board members got their first look at a working draft of junior high attendance boundaries. The district plans to open Pearson Elementary as a sixth-grade center in fall 2012 and transition Shakopee Junior High and Shakopee Middle School into two seventh-through-nine junior highs. The early draft splits the district in half based on the board’s previously identified criteria — total population, walking distances and balance of socioeconomics and limited-English proficient (LEP) students. The early boundaries place all of Red Oak Elementary and Sun Path Elementary students in the “East�

Dramatic cuts, a building sale and district user fees could be on the horizon for a local educational cooperative that’s running $1 million in the red. The Carver-Scott Educational Cooperative is in statutory operating debt (SOD), a serious budget situation that could force member districts to make changes or even help pay. “We’re not just in statutory operating debt, we’re hunkered down,” said Executive Director Darren Kermes. The debt, caused by billing errors made over a number of years, came to light in the past couple years, and puts more pressure on executing a planned merger between the Minnesota River Valley Special Education Cooperative (MRVSEC) and Carver-Scott. Kermes, who last year became the top administrator for both cooperatives, said billing mistakes dealing with specialeducation teachers with dual licensure, as well as claiming revenue from a social worker contract shared with the Chaska school district, were two main reasons for the debt. “It was a series of reimburse-

ment claims that were not allowable for several years, that were corrected,” Kermes said. T he SOD status was announced in Jordan Monday by School Board Chair Deb Pauly, who represents Jordan on the Carver-Scott board. “It will greatly impact Carver-Scott and our relationship with them,” said Pauly, adding that buildings and staffing could also be affected. The Shakopee School District recently announced it was pulling out of its alternative learning center ag reement with the Carver-Scott Co-op. It will remain a cooperative member in other programs. Kermes compared the mistakes, which he inherited when he started as executive director, to a knotted string of Christmas lights. The billing in question for special education costs totaled about $2.2 million. And billing for the social worker contract was about $1.6 million, Kermes said. “The problem was CarverScott submitted 100 percent of the costs,” he said. “As a result, Carver-Scott is in big SOD,” said Pauly. Car ver-Scott has a total budget of about $16 million, and in recent years saw its fund

Libby Bergen no plans to quit working, however. She said she’s looking for a career change and exploring options in or out of education. The Shakopee resident, who grew up in southern Minnesota as the daughter of an elementary principal, received her undergraduate and educationspecialist degrees from the University of Minnesota. Before coming to Shakopee, she taught at West St. Paul, was an assistant principal in New Richmond, Wis., and an administrator in Faribault. The School Board approved B e r g e n’s r e t i r e m e n t a n d thanked her for her during Monday’s regular meeting. “It’s been great,” Bergen said about her time in Shakopee. “The community has been incredibly supportive – students, staff, everyone.”

Carla Shutrop elected School Board chair Sh a kop e e S cho ol B oa rd members elected Carla Shutrop as the 2012 board chair. Five of the seven board members voted for Shutrop during their annual organizational meeting Monday. Mary Romanksy and Steve Schneider voted for Schneider as board chair. With four new board members taking the oath of office Monday, the 2012 board definitely has a leadership structure to match. R e g g i e B ow e r m a n w a s elected vice chair and Angela Tucker was elected clerk, both over longtime Board Member Mary Romansky. Scott Swan-

son was the only unanimous vote as treasurer. In organizational matters the board also designated: I Voyager Bank as its primary depository with Wells Fargo, U S Bank Minneapolis, U S Bank St. Paul, Minnesota School District Liquid Asset F und Plus, Citizens Bank, Bremmer Bank, MinnTrust and Associated Bank as additional depositories. I Shakopee Valley News as the district’s official newspaper for legal publications. I Shakopee Park Nicollet as the school district’s appointed physicians.

School Board elects to again skip raise Board Member Steve Schneider made the meeting interesting early when he proposed raising the annual board compensation by $500 to $4,500. Schneider noted the district, which last raised board compensation in 2007, is falling behind its peers. Every year the board argues about whether to increase compensation but fi nds reasons to pass it off. “Fina l ly we have to say enough it enough and change our compensation,” he said. Board Member Reggie Bowerman spoke for several new board members, saying he felt

uncomfortable raising the salary. “I feel inappropriate making the decision on my behalf,” he said, adding he wished the previous board had done so. Mary Romansky suggested the budget committee study board compensation and possibly bring it back later. She noted that it’s not ideal, but the board has no other way of increasing its compensation. “It’s the only way to get it done. We have to do it ourselves,” she said. The salary was set at $4,000 a year with an additional $500 for the board chair. Kristin Holtz

unfounded. However, several of the districts were trying to start their own area learning centers, which is one of several roles played by Carver-Scott. Kermes said the 18-month plan hinges on the support of member districts to hang in there and not leave the cooperative. After that, they could stay or leave with less fallout, he said. In all, about 600 students use the cooperative. Kermes said that if a district did leave, “we might as well shut the cooperative down.” The Carver-Scott board will discuss changes to the organization’s structure at its Jan. 24 meeting. Area learning centers – one is located in Lydia – will also be a hot topic. Kermes said on Monday the Shakopee School Board voted to start its own learning center, and Waconia will be running its own as well. Near Jordan, Carver-Scott plans to close its learning center in Lydia. The SOD should add some pressure to ongoing moves to merge Carver-Scott and the Minnesota River Valley Special Education Cooperative (MRVSEC), under the leadership of Kermes. Still, Kermes said he remains optimistic.

District to post opening for assistant superintendent

BY KRISTIN HOLTZ kholtz@swpub.com

Another longtime Shakopee School District administrator is saying goodbye to the school district come summer. Eagle Creek Elementary Principal Libby Bergen plans to retire June 30. She is in her 20th year as a Shakopee administrator. “It’s been an incredible experience to be a part of the growth and the change here in Shakopee,” Bergen said Monday. Bergen, 58, has served the district in numerous roles. She was principal at Pearson Elementary for two years before taking on the fifth- and sixth-grade program at Central Elementary. She opened Sun Path Elementary in 1999 and Eagle Creek Elementary in 2 0 07. She spent one year on special assignment in 2006-07, helping the district transition to a new high school, junior high, middle school and elementary building. She also helped the School Board policy committee rewrite its district policy manual. Bergen, who reached the “Rule of 90” this year, making her eligible for retirement, has

balances gradually sink toward the negative, not counting the billing errors. Now, the cooperative may be hanging on for dear life to its nine member districts as it develops plans to get out of debt in between 18-24 months. “I don’t think we can make it if we lose so much as one small district during these 18 months,” Kermes said. When a district is in SOD, the state must approve a plan to get the district out of debt. Kermes said districts could pay a membership fee that they didn’t pay in the past. CarverScott could also look at selling a Chaska building appraised at $1.5 million. There will be dramatic cuts to administration — Kermes said to the tune of $500,000. And, the planned merger with MRVSEC would reduce core costs. “There will be costs involved to our district,” Pauly said. Kermes said he’s optimistic that within 18 to 24 months they can put in place a plan that will get Carver-Scott out of debt. “We just have to get our costs under control,” he said. Rumors in recent days have led to some talk of districts pulling out of Carver-Scott, but according to Kermes, they were

Wit h lit t le fa n fa re a nd hardly any discussion, the Shakopee School Board decided to post for a top administrator Monday. School Boa rd members agreed to post for an assistant superintendent to ease the district’s administration burden. However, the board has not officially approved hiring of the position. The assistant superintendent will be responsible for secondary curriculum, principal evaluations and the new Shakopee Alternative Learning Center, Superintendent Rod Thompson said. Teaching and Learning Director Jayne Gibson will focus more on elementary-level curriculum and early-childhood alignment, Thompsons said. The position, which was p o s t e d T ue s d ay, i s op en through March 2. Board Member Reggie Bow-

erman said while it’s uncomfortable to add the expense of another administrator, the district has been running lean for awhile. The previous board had supported the idea of hiring an assistant superintendent, he noted. Earlier this school year, the board posted for a secondary director of teaching and learning. However, the hiring committee was not pleased with the candidate pool. At the time, Thompson suggested the board either repost the position or consider scrapping the plan and hiring an assistant superintendent instead. While an assistant superintendent would be more expensive, he or she could be licensed for added responsibilities. Thompson said Tuesday compensation will be negotiated after a candidate is chosen. As a central cabinet position, the assistant superintendent’s compensation would be above that of building principal, he said.

The city of Prior Lake’s attempt to spur economic development now includes repealing a fire ordinance that required sprinkler systems in new commercial buildings or existing business that expand. Though Fire Chief Doug Hartman had testified at council meetings about sprinklers’ effectiveness in saving lives and reducing the cost of damages in fi res, Prior Lake City Council members on Jan. 3 repealed a state statute section that is an option for cities to require sprinkler systems. The review of the code came about as a result of River Valley Veterinary Services’ proposal to expand its business. In October, council members approved tax-increment fi nancing to help the vet clinic double its 7,500-square-foot building off Highway 13, including the addition of a dog day care and boarding facility.

The business owners and several council members believe the cost of installing sprinkler systems impedes economic development, especially for small businesses. Hartman said he did not support repealing Chapter 1306, “as it is the best option in the code to protect the public and our fi refighters.” Builders of new or renovated structures still have the option to install fire-suppression systems, and sprinklers still are required in some cases, depending on occupancy, building materials, square footage and building uses, Hartman said. Mayor Mike Myser said he “didn’t hear evidence” to convince him of the ordinance’s public benefit. “By repealing [Chapter] 1306, we’re still abiding by state law and international building code,” Myser said. “We are making economic development here in Prior Lake reasonable.”

commentary EDITORIAL

Attempt to fire Shelton over grudges ludicrous Scott County has shown outstanding fiscal leadership by holding the line on taxes despite being squeezed by fi nancial aid cuts from the state, convincing employees to forgo pay increases, streamlining government services to be more fiscally efficient and introducing a program to crosstrain employees so they can cover duties in multiple departments. At the head of Scott County government is Administrator Gary Shelton, who has consistently received outstanding performance reviews from the County Board, including just recently. So, what does Scott County Commissioner Joe Wagner of Jordan do? He moved to terminate Shelton last week. His motion was seconded by Commissioner Dave Menden of Shakopee. Why, exactly, did these commissioners support fi ring Shelton? No one knows exactly, but both men assured that it was for good reason. Perhaps, but we’d like to hear more. Wagner claims that the move has been building for some time and that he doesn’t like the way Shelton does his job, adding that he really became upset with the way Shelton “bragged” about his home, his sideline business and a car he owns. Menden, a former Scott County sheriff and sheriff ’s deputy who worked with Shelton at the county jail, said there is a lot of mistrust be-

tween him and Shelton, and he has a list of 20 grievances “at home.” “Some is personal, I’ll admit,” Menden said. “When he tries to do everything possible so you don’t get elected. The rest is business and ethical.” “There is no trust there. I’m always watching my back when he comes up with things.” Commissioners Jon Ulrich of Savage and Barbara Marschall of Prior Lake are fierce supporters of Shelton. Ulrich, in anticipation of Wagner’s move, made scores of phone calls to area local government mayors, administrators and other officials to drum up support for Shelton. And it apparently paid off. The swing voter last week, Board Chair Tom Wolf of Credit River Township, provided the deciding vote against the motion, which failed 3-2. Does a board fi re an administrator because a commissioner believes he helped the commissioner’s opponent in an election more than a year ago? Because a commissioner considers what he says to be “bragging” ? Because of “reasons” not mentioned? The ill-advised motion by Wagner and second by Menden last week appears to be based on petty personal grudges, playground petulance and paranoia. Sadly, this matter is probably not over yet, and the county will suffer because of it — and we don’t mean just embarrassment.

GUEST COMMENTARY

The facts of the Joe Wagner case BY PAT CILIBERTO & KEVIN STUDNICKA

In last week’s edition of the Shakopee Valley News, as well as the edition of other local papers, it was reported that Scott County Commissioner Joe Wagner claims that the Washington County Sheriff’s Office investigation of his conduct, related to a separate law enforcement investigation, was politically motivated by the undersigned sheriff and county attorney, of Scott County. That claim is not based on the facts. While one of the duties of an elected county attorney is to represent the County Board, as a whole, concerning county business, an elected county attorney has no duty to remain silent if an individual County Board member makes claims not related to his or her elected duties, that are not factual. The facts are as follows: In September, the Scott County Sheriff ’s Office, as well as Scott County Child Protection, were both notified of a reported injury to an infant. A preliminary investigation was commenced. A preliminary investigation was immediately commenced by the Scott County Sheriff’s Office. While not in any way directly connected to the infant’s injury, Joe Wagner’s alleged conduct involving misleading a Scott County Human Services employee concerning relevant facts was reported as part of the preliminary investigation. Joe Wagner is an elected Scott County commissioner in District 1. Because of his status as an elected Scott County official, the Scott County Sheriff’s Office, as well as the Scott County Attorney’s Office, faced an obvious conflict concerning any further investigation, or determination concerning Joe Wagner’s alleged conduct regarding a witness, or witnesses, in the underlying infant injury investigation. The Washington County Sheriff’s Office, as well as the Washington County Attorney’s Office, accepted the confl ict, and agreed to proceed as their respective officers deemed necessary. As part of the Washington County Sheriff’s Office investigation sum-

mary, dated December 9, 2011, the following quote is included: “What prompted Scott County to make this referral is the undisputed fact that in questioning by the Human Services’ staff member in which she asked Mr. Wagner if he was familiar with (day care provider) before providing him any significant level of information about the incident, Mr. Wagner, according to the Human Services’ employee, stated that he was not familiar with (day care provider). Subsequent investigation has clearly established that statement is not consistent with the facts. Mr. Wagner and (day care provider) have been brother- and sister-in-law for about 18 years. Additionally, when (day care provider) appeared at the Scott County Sheriff’s Office to provide a statement to investigators, Mr. Wagner accompanied her and was identified through the course of investigation as being there at (day care provider’s) request as a “family member” to provide “moral support,” which is certainly not consistent with two individuals who did not know each other. Due to this misrepresentation, Scott County officials became concerned that violations of various criminal laws may have taken place and sought our assistance.” The above quote, and above-referenced Washington County Sheriff’s Office Investigation Report, dated Dec. 9, 2011, in its entirety, is public information. Pat Ciliberto is the Scott County attorney. Kevin Studnicka is the Scott County sheriff.

Nothing to warrant Shelton’s termination After reading this article regarding the ongoing skirmish between County Administrator Gary Shelton and county Commissioners Joe Wagner and Dave Menden, two things came immediately to mind. First and foremost, shouldn’t a decision to terminate employment be based on measurable factors including but not necessarily limited to job performance, presence or lack of ethical behavior, availability of replacement candidates, and similar criteria? Secondly, phrases like “ ... there is a whole list ... ” and “Some of it is personal ... ” are things that I’ve heard come out of my children’s mouths, but are defi nitely not what I would expect out of elected officials. Whether or not Mr. Shelton is a likeable person is irrelevant, at least in my mind. While his actions may not have endeared himself to others, I found nothing in the article that would warrant termination. The message to everyone involved in this scrum is should be crystal clear. Put your personal feelings aside and fulfi ll your professional duty and responsibility to Scott County! Elected officials: As long as we are on the topic of voting, I know that I will be exercising my right to vote in the next election. Consider yourselves on a performance plan!

Community service officer is lauded I along with numerous citizens of Shakopee would like to congratulate community service officer Joe Theis for the outstanding work he completed during his term as a community service officer for the Shakopee Police Department. Some of the eyesores that I spoke of in previous letters have been cleaned up. Officer Theis is moving up to patrol status, where I believe he will continue to provide the citizens of Shakopee with the highest standard of service. After having a number of conversations with officer Theis, I have found him to be what I personally believe that all police officers should be — someone who doesn’t use an attitude of superiority while on the job. I understand that their job can go from boring to terrifying in a matter of seconds. That doesn’t excuse the lack of professionalism by some of the city’s officers. I hope that the job does not change him. Thanks, Officer Joe.

A gift that could save lives What does $ 2 mean to you? It could make a difference in someone else’s life and leave a legacy of hope and healing. More than 112,000 people in the United States need a life-saving or-

gan transplant. Approximately 2,700 of those individuals live in Minnesota. If more people register to be donors, more lives will be saved. A new law that went into effect on Jan. 1 could significantly increase Minnesota’s registry of donors and help heal people battling organ failure, devastating burns, blindness and other serious conditions. Minnesota residents are now able to contribute $2 to support public education about organ, tissue and eye donation when they apply for or renew their driver’s licenses and ID cards. Known as the “You and $2” program, the law was modeled after successful initiatives in other states. Contributions to “You and $2” will be distributed to organizations like LifeSource — the statewide nonprofit organization responsible for managing organ and tissue donation in our region —to help increase awareness about the need for more people to register as organ donors and save the lives of others. Over six years ago our daughter, Karlynn, gave the gift of life to five individuals because she had made the decision to register as an organ donor. We are comforted that we honored Karlynn’s choice to share the gift of life, but we know many other people are still waiting — some desperately — for the donation that could restore their health and hope. We know Karlynn’s gift saved lives. We hope this letter might inspire you to register as an organ donor and also contribute to the “You and $2” program. With these simple steps, every individual can make a difference. The question remains, what does $2 mean to you?

My 96-year-old mother lives on the memory-care f loor and has dementia. She lives on the EdinaBloomington-Eden Prairie border, my sister lives across the highway in Edina and I live 28 miles across town in Shoreview. I see my mother at least twice a week and my sister sees her every day. My mother has always been on the go so we continue to take her out just about every day and want her to have the best life possible. She cries when we leave. It is very difficult. Although she is often aware of her life, her situation and my sister and I, she still gets confused. She can still be a quick wit and still laughs at my jokes. She still plays the piano, and knows how to play her antique little accordion (although it’s too hard for her to use it) and even a harmonica. (She played the piano for dances when she was 15 — her dad traded a cow to buy her a piano.) Anyone caring for an elderly relative, especially one with dementia, will understand the challenges of bundling her up, getting her in and out of the car, carrying an “emergency” bag and fi nding quiet enough restaurants so we can hear each other. I’ve often taken her to Wampach’s Restaurant. Yesterday, we were seated by very kind and helpful servers. (My mother, years ago, waitressed in several of the top Minneapolis restaurants (Charlie’s Cafe Exceptionale, the Minneapolis Club and the Flame Room at the Radisson Hotel). We once ate in a little restaurant in Prior Lake and the owner said their bar came from Charlie’s Cafe Exceptionale. Mother was a top-notch waitress, and still likes good service herself. She later took her civil service test, worked in the schools, at the school board and eventually retired from the Minneapolis Police Department. Frail and bent, she is still a trouper. This is al l leading up to the kind deed an anonymous couple did yesterday. I took my mom to Wampach’s for lunch on Sunday, told the waitress that my mom used to waitress, got Mother settled, got her up to use the ladies’ room, got her settled again, and made sure her coffee and food were hot — she likes everything served hot. A customer noticed. At the end, the waitress said a man had paid for our lunch. He and his wife were no longer there for me to thank. She said he preferred it that way and she said every now and then, someone does something like that in the restaurant. The waitress said they wanted to pay for our lunches because it was so nice to see someone take their mother out for lunch. The waitresses said they didn’t know them but thought they may have been in before. I would like to thank them and let them know how touched I was.

An additional lane will be added on a Highway 169 ramp to Marschall Road. Design consultants are currently bidding for the project, which isn’t scheduled for construction until 2014. The city and county are splitting the right-of-way costs and the local (10 percent) match of the construction costs. The city is responsible for all engineering fees. Shannon Fiecke

Lehman opposes Tabke appointment City Councilor Matt Lehman last week opposed the appointment of new Mayor Brad Tabke to a panel that recommends candidates for city boards and commissions. The city’s mayor has not served on the interview panel since it was formed 10 years ago, Lehman said. Because this sets a new precedent, Lehman said he fears it could send the wrong message. He worries it could make it appear the mayor is trying to appoint people to further his own vision. “I’d like us to start out in a position of neutrality so that no one can make that argument,” Lehman said. Tabke countered that someone could make the same argument for a city councilor sitting on the interview panel. In the past, city councilors have rotated the job. Since Lehman served with Pamela Punt last year, that would have meant new city Councilor Jay Whiting (who was proposed to sit on the panel) and Steve Clay this year. “I’ll do it if I have to,” said Clay. “You end up having to say no to so many good people.” The interview panel’s recommendations come back to the council for a full vote. Whiting said he supports Tabke giving it a try this year, with Tabke perhaps coming off next year. Tabke wants the city’s boards and commissions to carry more weight. His intention of serving on the panel is to signal to board volunteers that what they’re doing is important to the city, he said. The council voted 3-1 (Punt absent) to endorse the council liaison appointments recommended by Tabke for 2012. Lehman apposed the list due to Tabke being on the interview panel. Lehman, who kept the same assignments except for passing the acting mayor role to Pamela Punt, noted that Tabke and Whiting took on quite a bit of responsibility as new members of the council. “I think as they get some time on council, they will wish they divided it up more equitably because it’s going to pretty time-consuming on their behalf,” Lehman said. The entire list of liaison appointments can be found at www. ci.shakopee.mn.us/mayor_citycouncil.cfm

MORE CITY COUNCIL ACTION The Shakopee City Council approved the following actions at its December meetings: I Due to the high cost of rock excavation, the city may not relocate three overhead power lines with the reconstruction of County Road 69. City public works staff do recommend the relocating of an existing overhead line from the Shakopee power substation to Scott Street, but do not recommend the undergrounding of primary lines west of the substation, north of a railroad bridge and at Third Avenue. The City Council tabled a motion to obtain more information before a final decision. I Elizabeth Carlson was hired as a new half-time evidence technician and community service officer Joseph Theis was promoted to police officer. The Police Department eliminated a full-time community service officer position to hire a parttime evidence technician and add a 47th police officer. Carlson will earn $17.80 per hour. I The council voted 4-1, with Councilor Steve Clay dissenting to allow the developer Ryan Cos. to extend utilities through a conservation easement to the Jo-Ann Fabrics store under construction in the Dean Lakes development. The developer plans to restore any disturbance to the site. Clay was unhappy the city previously allowed Ryan Companies to change the tax status on other land in the development to agricultural. The new council (seated in January) approved the following actions: I Accepted the retirement of Patricia Pennington from her secretary in the engineering division. Pennington has worked for the city since September 1980. Her last day is Jan. 19. I Accepted the resignation of engineering technician Jeff Evens, effective Jan. 17. Evens began working for the city in May 2006. I The city refused to sign onto an agreement with the Metropolitan Council regarding an automatic vehicle locating system, SMARTCoM, that’s installed on the city’s BlueXpress buses. The equipment allows for tracking bus locations, but has not allowed the city’s bus provider (Schmitty & Sons Transit) to generate useful information and reports using the system. Shakopee opposes the agreement because the city has had no role in selecting the equipment and software or negotiating the terms of the agreement. Furthermore, the agreement obligates the city to pay for unknown maintenance and software. The city operates its transit services using vehicles that are part of the regional fleet controlled by the Met Council. The council also decided to reiterate the city’s displeasure with new fleet leasing policies adopted by the Metropolitan Council. The new policies were adopted over the objections of suburban transit providers. The council approved a new lease agreement with the Met Council, while asking for the policies to be reconsidered.

Man with alleged CITY OF SHAKOPEE cartel ties OPENINGS ON CITY VOLUNTEER BOARDS videotaped AND COMMISSIONS in court

The Shakopee City Council is now inviting residents to consider serving on a volunteer board or commission. Due to expiring terms, there will be openings on the following boards and commissions beginning March 1, 2012:

BY SHANNON FIECKE sfiecke@swpub.com

A 35-year-old Minneapolis man with alleged ties to a criminal organization was brought before Judge Rex Stacey last Thursday for videotaping people in his courtroom. Lauro Vincente Riera used his T-Mobile cell phone to fi lm court personnel, people in the courtroom and county attorney staff duri n g a m ajor drug hearing on Jan. 3, said Lauro Scott County Riera Attorney Pat Ciliberto, who assigned himself to the followup hearing. Riera did this in view of Judge Stacey. Riera’s cell phone number was found in narcotics investigations and there’s evidence he was sent to Scott County to gather information on court personnel involved in Tuesday’s heroin case, Ciliberto told the judge. Riera’s court-appointed attorney, Kevin Wetherille, responded that Riera had no ill-intent by recording. Riera claimed through an interpreter that a friend asked him to let him know what happened at the proceedings. “Is Mr. Riera a member of the cartel?” Stacey asked, before changing his mind. “You probably shouldn’t answer that.” Video and audio recordings are not allowed in Minnesota courtrooms. Ciliberto told the Valley News that Riera audio and video-recorded people, including the judge. Stacey found Riera in direct contempt and jailed him for 90 days — the maximum possible. Law enforcement discovered Riera was instructed to learn the identities those involved in the drug case, the judge wrote in his memorandum. The heroin involved in the Jan. 3 case was confiscated from an alleged safe house on Queen Avenue in Shakopee in early December and, according to Ciliberto, carried more than a $600,000 street value. The 24-year-old defendant, Armando Diaz-Gomez, in that case is being held on $2 million bail for one fi rst-degree charge of selling heroin. Law enforcement believes Riera has ties to the same drug cartel as Riera. “This is the fi rst occasion in which we’ve had such an incident occur involving a major drug case,” Ciliberto told the Valley News. After Riera left the courtroom this morning, Stacey lamented cartel activity to those who remained. “The quality is high, the price is low and people are dying ...” the judge said. “Be careful out there!”

HEARD AROUND TOWN There’s a lot happening in Shakopee … and although every bit of news may be not front-page worthy, it’s definitely worth repeating. Got news of your own to share? Send tidbits and kudos to editor@shakopeenews.com. I Former Shakopee High School hockey player Holt Bennington recently appeared on KARE 11 to talk about his own serious hockey injury 14 years ago. In January 1998, Bennington crashed head-fi rst into the boards during a junior varsity game that left him paralyzed from the chest down. The now 29-year-old shared his story with KARE 11 following an eerily similar incident to Benilde-St. Margaret’s Jack Jablonski, who was paralyzed in a junior varsity game Dec. 30. I The Minnesota School Boards Association will honor for mer Sha kopee School Board member Kathy Busch for her 20 years of service on the school board. MSBA will present Busch with a 20-Year Service Award during a recognition luncheon Jan. 12 at MSBA’s annual Leadership Conference. Busch is one of 19 board members to reach the 20year milestone in 2012.

STADIUM  continued from page 1

The building — which is double the size of the proposed retractable-roof stadium, Tabke said —would be demolished and sold for scrap. “With all the metal and hightech things in there, which have been preserved, they will make money selling scrap,” Tabke said. “The majority can be recycled.” P roper ty ow ner Cha rles Mattson has been unable to fi nd a buyer for the unique site. He signed a letter of intent to sell the land to the Vikings for $21.5 million. The property is valued by Scott County at $16.36 million. It costs Mattson $40,000 per month to heat and cool the building, Tabke said. The idea for a stadium here began percolating in the mind of developer Richard Anderson six months ago. Anderson, who helped with the original sale of the ADC building to Mattson, approached Tabke after his election. “It was the right size and the other sites proposed were not fitting the bill,” said Anderson, who developed much of the northeast quadrant of Eden Prairie. “It has two four-lane highways for traffic. All these other places had deadlocked roadways. On top of that, it’s a flat surface. It’s accessible and has all the other requirements. … It’s an attractive place for a tourist.” Tabke contacted Merrifield, a Shakopee resident, to ask who could help with the financing angle. The two talked last Thursday. Merrifield — who had already developed a detailed fi nancing plan himself — got on board, and the idea fast-tracked from there.

SHAKOPEE BENEFITS The Vikings say they’re still focused on Arden Hills, but the Shakopee property is being heralded by community leaders as less expensive, easy to build and located in a town already on the map as an entertainment destination. The ADC property doesn’t

carry the “baggage” of other sites, Tabke said, such as Arden Hills’ extensive cleanup requirements. Development could begin quickly due to the dynamics of the site, which include existing sewer, power and water infrastructure. The lot is four times the size of the Metrodome and three times larger than the Farmers Market and Linden Avenue proposed sites. While dwarfed by the Arden Hills site, there is ample land nearby ripe for restaurants and retail businesses. The option is also the cheapest to build: an estimated $920 million. The property, which includes a Conklin Co. lot, has room for an estimated 32,500 parking stalls, with Valleyfair and Canterbury Park proposed to hold excess parking and tailgating. A bonus for the site: it’s located adjacent to Quarry Lake, a 105-acre city-owned site being held for a future park and recreation, which could include trails and camping. Another big plus is its location five miles south of Winter Park, the Vikings headquarters, and on the way to the team’s Mankato training camp. Many Vikings players live close by in Eden Prairie. The spot is also being sold as well-situated for fans. Some 40 percent of season-ticket holders live in the metro, with the majority of them in the southwest metro. Vi ki ngs spokesma n Jef f Anderson told the Star Tribune the team is not interested in meeting with Shakopee officials. “Right now, we’re just focused in on the governor’s deadline tomorrow and the Arden Hills plan. We have no

plans to meet with Shakopee officials,” he said. Although Arden Hills remains the team’s preferred site, Tabke said the Vikings are “excited” to have another plan in the mix. “We’re uniquely positioned to grow and develop around something this big, because we’ve already done it,” said Shakopee Chamber of Commerce President Angie Whitcomb.

FINANCING, TRANSPORTATION No state general fund doll a rs wou ld b e requi re d to pu rchase t he proper t y be cause t he la nd is so much cheaper than A rden Hi l ls, Tabke said. T he g roup i s prop osi n g the stadium be fi nanced with user-based fees and taxes from a racino at Canterbury Park. A third of the cost would be fi nanced by fans, including a $5 surcharge on Vikings tickets. No city money is included in the plan, with the state proposed to cover necessary highway improvements. A third lane on south Highway 169 — which ends south of the Bloomington Ferry Bridge — would have to be extended, and an exit ramp added from the southbound lane to the industrial park at Valley View Drive (which is also a straight shot to Valleyfair). T he exit ra mp ide a wa s already studied as part of a failed development proposal, called the Asian World Marketplace, for the ADC site, said Beard, who assisted with that 2008 project. The Shakopee site would require the raising of the County Road 101 river crossing and making it four lanes, but that is already being looked at by the state for flood mitigation purposes. Improvements to the south end of the Bloomington Ferry Bridge are also being studied. Serendipitously, the proposal comes at the same time as major interchange improvements at Interstate Highway 494 and Highway 169, as well as Highway 13 and County Road 101 in Savage. Addition-

Telecommunications building would be demolished and scrapped for parts to make room for a Vikings stadium, under the proposal. The building is double the size of the proposed retractable roof stadium.

What do you think? Shakopee Valley News asked its Twitter and Facebook followers whether they love or hate the idea of a Vikings stadium in town. Here’s what they’re saying: Lanae Paaverud (Facebook): I’m excited to hear it, and am looking forward to more details. Jeremy Nelson (Twitter @jeremynelson77): I love it provided the costs make sense. I love that we are being aggressive. Ann Clement (Facebook): Hate! They arent (sic) any good anymore. Brenda Lee Nelson (Facebook): Love the stadium but hate the traffic and the potential increase in intoxicated drivers. Danielle J (Twitter @danoluise): LOVE IT Great job @MayorTabke! Amy Pansier Le (Facebook): Hate it. Linda Ivey (Twitter @lindal26): Love it! It would only enhance the existing businesses and our community. Chuck Berg (Facebook): Don’t believe we have the road system to support it and would not be interested in any tax increases for this. Resolve those and I love it.

ally, an interchange will go in at Highways 13 and 5 in Burnsville next fall, which should further free the Highway 13 corridor. City leaders have been clued in and will be asked Tuesday to pass a resolution in support of the stadium proposal. Proponents say the city is the perfect place for Vikings fans to stay and play given all its other attractions.

They believe Shakopee is fully capable of handling the Vikings too. “We do this every day and do it in our sleep. … To use t he a sset s we a re a l re ady have in place makes sense to me,” Beard said. “We have the infrastructure for 6 million [annual visitors]. To handle another 65,000 or 75,000 on Sunday afternoons in the fall is a piece of cake. ”

ALC

cipal Kim Swift’s experience. Swift was an ALC principal for seven years in Dubuque, Iowa. Building off the district’s Project Lead the Way reputation, Boa rd Member Ma r y Romansky suggested a possible Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) theme for the Shakopee Alternative Learning Center. Not only would the STEM focus fit well with the district’s

current programming, but also would combat the stereotype that ALC kids are in some way stupid, said Romansky, current CSEC board chair. The students who enroll in ALCs are typically just kids who learn better in an alternative school setting. District 112 is set to open its ALC in fall 2012. The center, which will have an arts focus, could have anywhere from 70 to 10 0 students, Eastern Carver County officials have estimated. For the Shakopee ALC to brea k even, it wou ld need between 35 and 40 students, Thompson said. He has no doubt the school will attract that many students considering Shakopee currently sends 40 students to the CSEC centers. Thompson said he’s more concerned that the school’s enrollment would double projections, which would defeat the small-school purpose. Board Member Angela Tucker said she’s pleased to see Shakopee’s students returning back to the district. Schneider added that it will also provide students with more choice to

pick an alternative program that’s right for them. The district planning committee will consider lease options for the Shakopee ALC since the district will not have any buildings available next

fall, Thompson said. All district buildings will be full, including Pearson, which will be a sixth-grade center. Also, best practice recommends setting up ALCs outside the traditional school building,

Thompson said. “You want to create an envi ronment where students who learn differently or alternatively can be successful together out of a traditional site,” he said.

staff to bring over instead “of what’s leftover,” he said. With less than nine months until the start of the 2 01213, Shakopee is working on a tight deadline, Superintendent Rod Thompson acknowledged. However, he’s hoping to draw on Shakopee High School Prin-

Road into a portion of Sweeney Elementary and Eagle Creek Elementary boundaries. The split would put 789 seventh-, eighth- and ninth-graders at East next fall; “West” junior high, the Shakopee Junior High building, will have 804 students. It also keeps the percentage of LEP students in each building relatively close at 9.6 percent and 8.1 percent, respectively. The percentage of students receiving free/ reduced lunch is even closer at 32.4 percent and 33.8 percent. Board Member Reggie Bowerman voiced concern, however, that in some neighborhoods kids living on opposite sides of the road will be headed to different schools. He said he’d like to see a map that takes natural geographic boundaries, like Marschall Road, into consideration. Setting a boundary along Marschall Road would create a greater split between the buildings in total population, LEP and free/reduced lunch students, Finance Director Mike Burlager said. For example, the free/reduced population would be 24 percent at East and 42 percent at West. Mary Romansky said she was concerned about skewing the demographics so that either school develops a reputation. “I like the idea of keeping it as equal as possible,” especially when starting new, she said. Steve Schneider was not in favor of adding neighborhoods to the board’s attendance criteria, which it has successfully used for many years. Matt McKeand said that while he agreed with Schneider philosophically he still wants to see more options. Board Member Scott Swanson added it’s important the board is as transparent as possible and show the community it looked at every option. Administrators said they would bring more map options and demographic breakdowns to the Jan. 23 meeting, including possible longitudinal data on extracurricular participation and future distribution of

people to market.” “Can you put buildings on eBay? ” Mayor Brad Tabke asked. “It seems like you can put almost anything,” Clay said. Wit h its la rge overhead doors, the appraiser determined the station would be a likely candidate for a vehicle service center or possibly an office warehouse space, said Wilson. She advised against leasing the building or retaining the station for storage, since the city has adequate space cur-

students between the boundaries. T he School Boa rd is expected to give its preliminary approval on the boundaries Jan. 23. The community will then have a chance to view the map at two open houses in late January or early February, according to Superintendent Rod Thompson’s proposed timeline. Final approval of the boundaries will come Feb. 13.

BUDGET Openi ng Pea rson Si xt hGrade Center and reconfiguring the two junior highs won’t come cheap. Burlager estimated the district will spend up to an additional $1.2 million in 2012-13 to staff the buildings. Among the additional positions are a sixth-grade principal, dean, secretaries and custodians. The district will also hire additional music, physical education, art, media, highpotential and special-education teachers. Utilities add another $106,500. That number came shortly on the heels of Wold Architects’ latest estimate for building improvements. Vaughan Dierks of Wold told the board Monday it may cost the district between $2.5 million and $5 million to fill the district’s curriculum needs. Among the proposed projects:  “East” Junior High: entry image, two additional tech-ed computer labs and equipment, weight equipment, family and consumer science equipment and reconfiguration of media center. Interior and exterior improvements were estimated between $1.5 and $2.7 million.  “West” Junior High: second art lab, tech-ed equipment, computer lab for Project Lead the Way (PLTW) and signage. Improvements estimated between $300,000 and $720,000.  Pearson: band and choir space, storage, PLT W lab, media center modifications, physical education needs and student lockers. Improvements estimated between $750,000 and $1.5 million. The district facilities task force will look over the projects at its Jan. 24 meeting before forwarding recommendations

rently for equipment and other storage. “The city is not really in the business of being a landlord to a private tena nt,” Wilson said. “If we retain the building [for no specific use], it will become the city’s attic or basement.” Proceeds from the building sale would be considered general revenue and could be spent on an immediate or future purpose, Wilson said. “I think we would add the senior center onto the Community Center, like we were talking about a few months back, if we had a few extra halfmillion dollars lying around,” Clay said.

to the board. Thompson noted Tuesday the proposed projects were a full list of all the district’s wants. He said teachers, administrators and the board will pare the list down over the next couple months to get a more conservative figure. Of Shakopee School District’s $ 21 million building fund, raised through building referendum, the district has about $ 8 million unreserved to fund the improvements, Burlager said. Dierks noted that all the projects could be completed over the summer.

CURRICULUM The board also approved three middle-level curriculum changes for the 2012-13 school year. The district will:  Replace its sixth-grace elect ronic com mu nic ation course with a PLTW class, magic of electrons. Teaching and Learning Director Jayne Gibson noted kids are learning computer skills earlier in elementary school so that offering the class in sixth-grade is superfluous.  Make sixth-grade general music an every-other-day, fullyear class on the same schedule as band and choir.  Move eighth-grade general music to seventh grade. The change would provide eighthgraders the opportunity to take a full-year elective of their choice. Gibson estimated the three changes could cost the district up to $ 80,000 a year in additional staff.

TRANSPORTATION The board made no decision regarding walking boundaries for the two junior high buildings. The current middle school building has a walking distance of three-quarters mile, while the junior high school has a distance of one mile, per district policy. If the board were to drop the attendance boundaries down to three-quarters mile for both schools, it would cost an additional $32,000 a year, Burlager said. If it moves both buildings to one-mile, the district would save $36,000.

The Shakopee Seniors Club meets at the log cabin (youth building) at Lions Park and wants a dedicated space to call home. However, the last city referendum to expand the Community Center failed. W hiting concurred with the rest of the council (Pamela Punt was absent) to put the fi re station up for sale. He asked for an amendment directing the building proceeds toward a senior facility. “No, no, no,” Clay interjected. “That’s a separate conversation,” Councilor Matt Lehman added. “First we got to see if it’s even sellable.” Shannon Fiecke

CITIZENS STATE BANK OF SHAKOPEE WOULD LIKE TO WISH

Brian Norris A HAPPY RETIREMENT

After over 30 years with the Citizens State Bank of Shakopee, Brian Norris retired at the end of 2011. Brian’s father Bill started the Bank in 1978 and Brian took over as President in 1980. During his tenure, there were several downturns in the economy and Brian was able to work through them and keep the bank moving forward. With the Bank’s merger with Stonebridge in 2010, Brian becomes our first employee to retire from the organization.

Thank you Brian for all you have done. Congratulations!

Page turners: Readers chime in on book recommendations

L

ooking for a good book? We challenged newspaper readers to answer a question – “What’s the best book you read in 2011?” – and some of your responses are on this page. We received a range of recommendations, from a book on how to turn back one’s biological clock to a World War II tale of Leningrad museum artifacts. Perhaps the reader advice published here will motivate you to buy a book or two, hunker down during the winter months ahead, and either learn, explore or be entertained by turning one page after another. Our thanks once again to all the readers who shared their thoughtful book recommendations.

Two stories share contrasting experiences Here are a couple books I read in 2011: “The Madonnas of Leningrad,” by Debra Dean.. By way of saving the contents (madonnas) of the Hermitage museum during WWII, this novel informs the reader of t he i ntense hu n g e r a n d cold the peasants endured in Leningrad. It makes hunger and cold unforgettable. “Waiting for White Horses,” by Nathan Jorgenson, a Minnesota author. This novell is a sweet read. Every character I would like t o k now b etter and would l i ke t o h ave for my neighbor. The two dentists value their friends h ip, wh ic h has g rown through seasons of duck hunting in northern Minnesota. I have never been duck hunting, but this read certainly makes it enticing.

Barbara Colhapp Chaska

‘The Wife’s Tale’ by Lori Lansens The best book I read in 2011 was “The Wife’s Tale” by Lori Lansens: Mary Gooch’s husband quietly e leaves her on the eve of their 25th wedding anniversary, which catapults Mary onto a path of tremendous self-discovery and personal g rowth. The premise sounds sad and it is. However, it is exciting and wonderful to watch Mary’s metamorphosis as the story unfolds. I fell in love with Mary Gooch – her courage, her strength and her humanity. I hated to see the story end!

Tory Brogan Eden Prairie

‘Nothing to Envy’ by Barbara Demick North Korea is a country I knew nothing about; the people, the politics, the culture. This book sheds a little light on this dark, hidden country by following the lives of a few people. It’s interesting to have this insight with the recent events occur-

ring there and the few images the government allows to be seen. While a shor t read, it is engaging and made me appreciate the sma l l liberties I take for granted.

J. Boevers Chanhassen

‘Football Wife: Coming of Age with the NFL as Mrs. Karl Kassulke’ by Jan Thatcher Adams, M.D. I read a lot of books, good, bad, and in-between. “Football Wife: Coming of Age with the NFL a s M r s . K a rl Kassulke,” by Jan Thatcher Adams, M.D., is a good book published i n 2011. This is a memoi r. A l l memoir writing is self-serving. The requirement for memoir is telling the Truth. Emily Dickinson in poem 1129 says: Tell All the Truth but tell its slant Success in Circuit lies She ends her poem with these lines: The Truth must dazzle gradually Or every man be blind Jan Adams told her Truth. Some of her candor may be shocking and disturbing to some readers, but she conveys an understanding and kindness about this time of her life. Reading this book will be an insightful learning experience. The family photos included tell an inclusive story. As a good memoirist should, Dr. Adams puts enough in and leaves enough out of her story. She allows us to read in well as read out in this well-crafted memoir.

Tom Dubbe, Ph.D. Shakopee

‘The Art of Racing in the Rain’ by Garth Stein I loved this b o o k ! Ve r y readable, it is an intriguing story told from the perspective of a wise and insightful dog who wants badly to be a hu ma n. He loves his family and is heartbroken by what he observes and cannot share.

‘Younger Next Year’ by Crowley and Lodge My husband and I recently read “Younger Next Year” by Chris Crowley and Henry S. Lodge. Crowley is a 70-plus retired at t o r n e y. H e shares ideas, attitude and inspiration about living long and st rong du ring “the last third” of our lives. Lodge is an internal medicine doctor who shares the science behind the theory that if we stay active (meaning aerobic exercise five to six days per week and active involvement in family and community), our body continues to grow rather than decay, as we’ve been conditioned believe. By following this program, the authors suggest you can avoid 70 percent of the decay and 50 percent of the illnesses and injuries associated with getting older. Published in 2005, the book is humorous and empowering all at once. Good information about a healthful diet, too, all told in a practical, funny tone. It was a really excellent read for this time of life and the beginning of the New Year. “Younger Next Year” and “Younger Next Year for Women” are available at the Scott County Library as hardcover and audio book.

Barb Tieben Jordan

‘The Hunger Games’ by Suzanne Collins The best books I read in 2011 were “The Hunger Games” series books by Suzanne Col-lins. I loved these books. T hey are fast-paced. They have act io n a n d r o mance. The characters were re a l ly good. They were page turners. They never got boring. I couldn’t put them down. I can’t wait for the movies!

Alex Wagner Age 14 Student at St. Michael’s School in Prior Lake

Suspenseful books are best I actually have two books that I loved in 2011: “ T he Hu nger Ga mes” series books. I loved these books because they had a lot of action and suspense. I also loved the book “I Am Number Four” by Pit t acus Lore. It had a lot of action and suspense and kept you turning pages.

‘Safe from the Sea’ by Peter Geye I really loved Ann Patchett’s

Chaska Middle School East eighth-grader book choices read because 13 different people were blamed for a girl’s suicide and each of the teens do not know why or how they are involved – intriguing and keeps you reading.

I recommend the book, “We Will Always Have Summer,” by Jenny Han. It is a great romance book that will keep you fl ipping the pages! You never know what is going to happen next!

“Shoeless Joe and Me,” by Dan Gutman: This book is an easy read and it is funny. It is about a boy that can travel though time with baseball cards. This is a series that teen boys will defi nitely want to check out.

Carly Kriesel

Kirsten Haugen “13 Reasons Why,” by Jay Asher: I thought this book was very fun to

book to eighth-graders and highschoolers.

Jessie Ireland “Pretty Little Liars,” by Sara

Paige Hall Shepard: I like this book because

Preston Hasting I recommend: “Hunger Games” series, of course! (“Catching Fire” was my fav); “Harry Potter and the Goblet Of Fire”; “Mysterious Benedict Society” because these books are perfect for engaging teenagers.

“If I Stay,” by Gayle Forman: I like this book because it is so suspenseful that you never want to put it down. The girl protagonist (she is in a coma) has to make a choice of whether she wants to go back to earth and fi nish living her life or go and join her family in the afterlife. It is also very romantic. I would recommend this

Most of the books on my list were published prior to this year. However I did read them this year. “The Book Thief,” by Markus Zusak. An interesting look at German life during World War II from the perspective of the main character, “Death.” “Reading The OED: One Man, One Year, 21730 Pages,” by Ammon Shea. The author read the OED in one year and reveals to the read very unique words that are not commonly read. Fun book to read. “The Cigar Maker,” by Mark McGinty: I enjoyed reading about Cuba and Cuban migration into Tampa, Fla. “Alas Babylon,” by Pat Frank. Published in 1959. An amazing post-apocalyptic novel written during the Cold War era. “Cutting for Stone,” by Abraham Verghese: A complex story of two brothers who are raised in an orphanage in Ethiopia. “Packing for Mars: The Curious Science of Life in the Void,”

other book that rates on the top of my 2011 list is by a Minnesota author, Peter Geye. The title is “Safe from the Sea.” It is set on a northern lake not far from Superior where a college professor visits his dyi ng fat her and hears the true story of the father’s experience on an ore boat that goes down in a gale on Superior. The son comes to understand his father’s life and in the process come to terms with his own life.

Phyllis Bofferding Eden Prairie

‘Billy Oliver Holding on to Memories’ by Charles Peters This is the type of book that once you start reading it, you don’t want to put it down until you get to the last page. A book that is w e l l w r it t e n and easy to read, readers find themselves living in the “moment” wit h you ng Bi l ly. W hen Billy laughs, readers fi nd themselves laughing out loud, when Billy cries, readers fi nd it is hard to keep a dry eye. The story has emotional ups and downs and ends with an inspirational high that is satisfying to readers.

Charles Peters Eden Prairie

‘Chief Joseph and the Flight of the Nez Perce’ by Kent Nerburn

Kate Wagner Best book I read in 2011: “Chief Age 14 Joseph and the Flight of the Nez Student at St. Michael’s School Perce,” by Minin Prior Lake nesota authorr

Joyce Goff “State of Wonder” and it is partially Savage set in Eden Prairie, Minn. But an-

The following book reviews are from Chaska Middle School East eighth-graders, submitted by language arts teacher Leslie Geissler, and media specialist Venisha Bahr.

Good reading noted

I watch the show and it’s very dramatic. It also has a lot of suspense. Teen girls who like series books and like chick lit will want to read these books.

Morgan Ingram “The Last Song,” by Nicholas Sparks: This would be a great book to read if you like summer romances with some tragedies. It may be a little sad at times but that’s what makes the book interesting. It also shows how a rebellious teenager fi nds herself again and becomes really close with her dying dad over the summer. Hope you read it!

Michaela Spielberger

Kent Nerburn. Meticulously researched a nd beautifully written, it is the story of a brave and c omp a s sion ate man who leads what is left of his people over the mountains and across the prairies while pursued by the U.S. Army and all the resources the government can summon. Nerburn clarifies the myths and misconceptions surrounding this great Native American leader whose tribe is deprived of the homeland they have possessed for centuries. Shortly before discovering this book last winter, I was returning from the West Coast and found myself on a deserted mountain road at night with an empty tank of gas. Miraculously there was a resort still open with a gas pump. The owner said this happens all the time. Later in reading the book I was surprised to learn that I had followed the same route as Joseph and his tribe in their flight. I prefer to think it was his spirit that looked out for me and that he still guides lonely travelers in need of help on their way home.

John Miles Shakopee

‘Long Walk to Freedom’ Autobiography of Nelson Mandela The best and most interesting book I read during 2011 is “Long

by Mary Roach. This was a funny book about space exploration, astronaut training. “Still Standing: The Story of SSG John Kriesel,” by Jim Kosmo. John Kriesel was a member of the Minnesota National Guard and was stationed in Iraq. “Winterdance: The Fine Madness of Running the Iditarod,” by Gary Paulsen. This is about the author’s decision to run the Iditarod. Honestly, this is not a topic that I would normally select to read but this in the top-five favorite books that I’ve read.

Jody Brennan Shakopee Walk to Freedom,” the autobiography of Nel s on M a n dela. It covers his entire life, his youth, his rise into notoriety as a leader among the ANC (African National Congress), his persecution and three decades in prison and his eventual election as the president of South Africa. This book defines what a true leader is – I wish more of our elected leaders would demonstrate similar leadership.

Matt Sasse Prior Lake

‘The Clockwork Angel’ by Cassandra Clare The Chaska High School Hawk’s Nest Book Club just fi nished reading “The Clock-wo rk A n g e l” by Cassandra Clare with rave reviews. T hi s b o ok i s the prequel to Clare’s popular “Mortal Instruments” series, and it is written in the steampunk (think Sherlock Holmes/Victorian era with supernatural and sci-fi elements) genre. Tessa Gray, 16, travels from America to London to join her brother, who has fallen under the influence of the supernatural underworld of London and plans to turn her over to the Dark Sisters who kidnap her in order to develop her previously unrealized ability to change shape into another person. Only the half-angel Shadowhunters can save her and protect her from those in the Underworld who wish to exploit her powers. The paranormal romantic triangle keeps the story moving along quickly, but some of the more predictable elements of the plot created a lively discussion among the avid readers of the book club! Want to see other great titles teens across the country are reading? Join us in reading some of the choices from YALSA’s (Young Adult division of the American Library Association) Top 25 Nominees at www.ala.org/yalsa/teenreading/ teenstopten/ttt11.

‘For Love of Lakes’ by Darby Nelson I read the book “For Love of Lakes” by Darby Nelson, a professor at A noka-Ramsey Community College, an aquatic ecologist and lakeprotection activist. The book engagingly challenges us to consider both our relationship with lakes and how our choices affect their future. It’s about lakes going way back to early humans, to Henry David Thoreau’s experience on Walden Pond, Concord, Mass. in 1845, and present times. He talks about the current state of our lakes and what we can do to preserve and improve them.

Shakopee ISD 720 has joined the city of Shakopee and Scott County in having aid payments withheld by the state. Superintendent, Dr. Robert Meyer, confi rmed that the district didn’t receive its $480,000 check for the month of December. If the state decides to withhold more aid next month, Meyer said the district will begin studying the possibility of borrowing on anticipated tax revenues to make ends meet. There is a possibility that at least one out of every 11 Shakopee homes has a potential “time bomb” sitting in the basement utility area. That “time bomb” could be a liquid propane or natural gas water heater, Shakopee Building Inspector LeRoy Hauser stated. If Shakopee is to become the tourist center that some people say it has the potential to be, city businesspeople, government officials and residents will have to work together to promote the city and its environs as a package.

Kilian found the solution to unlocking his potential.

“We wish we had known about LearningRx years ago. Cognitive brain training was the solution that moved Kilian from struggling to amazing.” —Kilian’s mom, Anne, Woodbury, MN

From kindergarten on, Kilian struggled with academic and behavioral challenges. Calls from school relayed a consistent theme: Kilian is unfocused and disorganized, does not put forth effort, scores inconsistently on tests, misses assignments, and is not living up to his potential. Years of trying harder, medication, tutoring, counseling, teacher conferences, resulted in limited, temporary improvements. “With Kilian beginning high school, solving his academic challenges became crucial,” says Jeff, Kilian’s dad. Through the brain-training program at LearningRx in Eagan, Kilian’s “untrained” brain became fit and efficient. Test results showed huge improvement, while Kilian demonstrated success in the classroom and on his report card. In just a few months, Kilian went from barely getting by to earning an academic letter by June of his freshman year!

Find out what’s holding your child back. Get to the root cause of your child’s struggles to focus, think, and learn. With amazing results, our proven program strengthens the key parts of the brain that help students learn and read better.

names straight. They look so much alike. They should wear name tags.” On second thought, maybe that’s not such a good idea. Maybe the basketball tournament would have been a good choice. “How was the tournament?” “I didn’t stay.” “Why not?” “Apparently there are expected rules of decorum that you aren’t aware of.” “Such as?” “Well it seems that referees are sensitive about their eyesight. I was asked to leave.” Forget that one. Perhaps I could have sent my clone to see my cousin play Irish music. “What’s this I hear about your behavior in Le Center?” “I thought you liked to dance.” “But not on tables, and certainly not the jig, how embarrassing. And singing with the band? I can’t sing.” “Maybe you can’t, but I can. It was fun. You know you should spend more time with your cousins. They’re fun.” “I know, I know. Don’t start OK?” You know when I think about it, I can’t imagine how cloning would add years to my life; it would only seem like it. One of me is more than I can handle anyway.

come down from the North Country to have a weekend at a hotel in the Cities. Some things can wait and some are clearly more important than others. I didn’t have all day to do that either because I wanted to watch the basketball team my son coaches play in a tournament here in town. But, I also wanted to go see my cousin Sheri perform with her band, “Locklin Road,” in Le Center for the official kickoff of the St. Patrick’s Day season. I would never let trust anyone else to write my column (not even another me) — even if it meant an improvement. Maybe time with my sister would have been a better option to send my clone to. Family comes first. I could get a full report from my clone at the end of the day. “So how was time with Joanne and her family?” “Not so good. I kept mixing her and her daughters up.” “What do you mean?” “I couldn’t keep their

It’s nothing to brag about but I believe I have a good imagination; at least I imagine that I do. However, I am not sure I can imagine all the changes (good and bad) science and technology will bring us. The other day I shared my lack of vision with my smart friend Jim. Like most of my friends, Jim had an opinion. He thinks cloning will be the next big thing and that if people our age live another 30 years they will most likely live past 100. That got me thinking. Let’s imagine that someday cloning yourself would be as easy as copying a document. Maybe Time-Life will introduce the “Home Cloning Kit” (some assembly required, must be 18 or older, and has been known to cause depression in some cases). Having a duplicate me to have around would make old age more attainable. With someone to help shoulder the stress my life expectancy should naturally increase. Plus, if I can get past all the creepy stuff that accompanies cloning, it would help solve the all too frequent problem of needing to be in two (or more) places at the same time. For instance, last Saturday I needed to be in four places. To begin with I have found that I am much happier if I have my column written Saturday instead of Sunday night (Grandfather Clock is about to strike 9). I couldn’t do that though, because my younger sister, Joanne, and her family had

Win streak stopped Red Wing halts Sabers’ roll in OT

BY TODD ABELN tabeln@swpub.com

The Shakopee girls hockey team had a four-game win streak snapped on Tuesday. Red Wing halted that streak when Paige Haley pumped in a goal just minutes into overtime at the Shakopee Ice Arena. That goal gave the Wingers a 5-4 win against the Sabers. In a game with two hat tricks, it was Haley’s final tally that did the Sabers in. Shakopee’s Amy Menke matched Haley goal-for-goal but it wasn’t enough to keep the Sabers’ win streak going. The scoring started quickly as Lauren Hespenheide tallied at 1:12 in the fi rst period for a 1-0 Sabers lead. Red Wing answered two minutes later to tie it up. In the second period, Menke scored early and late for the Sabers. She scored 54 seconds into the period and with 5.5 seconds left in the period. In between Haley scored twice for Red Wing. Red Wing went up 4-3 with a powerplay goal in the third only to see Menke score a minute later to tie it up and send the game into overtime.

improve to 7-10-1 on the season. The fourth win in that streak came last Thursday when the Sabers scored three times in the third period to defeat Holy Angels 4-1 at Richfield Ice Arena. After a scoreless fi rst period, Hespenheide put the Sabers up 1-0 with a goal at 3:38 of the second on an assist from Abbey Leffler. In the third, JoJo Lindstrom made it 2-0 and Menke made 4-0 with two goals in just over a minute. Holy Angels broke up the shutout midway through the period. The Sabers outshot the Stars 39-15 in the win. Also in that winning streak was a 5-2 win against New Prague at home on Tuesday last week. Menke scored a third-period hat trick to lead the Sabers to victory. The Sabers led 2-1 after two periods behind goals by Anna Kubes and Lindstrom. In the third period, Menke scored her fi rst goal of the game and made it 3-1 just 11 seconds into the period. New Prague cut it to 3-2 only to see Menke score seven seconds later. She iced the game away with her third goal of game at 11: 38 of the third.

ON A ROLL Prior to losing to Red Wing, the Sabers had won four in a row, including two Missota Conference wins, to

Trojans put dent in repeat hopes Grapplers finish third in Cannon Falls Invitational BY TODD ABELN tabeln@swpub.com

The Shakopee wrestling team’s hopes of repeating as Missota Conference champions took a hit last week. T he S ab er s fel l t o New Prague at home on Thursday, 38-32. Now if Shakopee wants to get a share of the conference title, it needs another Missota Conference team to knock off the Trojans. In the dual meet, both New P rag ue and Shakopee won seven matches but the Trojans were able to get more bonus points to win by six. The meet started with New Prague getting pin falls in three of the fi rst four matches to build an 18-4 lead. Alex Cole-

man earned a major decision at 113 pounds. Shakopee was never able to recover from that slow start as New Prague held the lead the entire night. After falling behind 18-4 after four matches, Rickey Hible and Patrick Casey won back-to-back matches to cut the lead to 18-10. New Prague won a one-point match at 145 and then got a technical fall at 152 pounds and a pin fall at 182 and 220 to keep Shakopee at bay. Getting wins for Shakopee were Sam Hall, Jacob Glynn, Scott Bode and Corey Anderson. “We are certainly disappointed with the loss but hope to learn from it and ultimately be a better team because of it,” head coach Mark Neu said.”

The Sabers fi nished ahead of Lake CrystalWellcome-Memorial, which is ranked fi fth in Class A. “We h ad some ups a nd downs during the day but fi nished strong,” Neu said.

Of the 14 weight classes, Shakopee had 11 wrestlers place in the top six, the most of any team in the tournament. Bode and Anderson earned championships at 195 and 220 pounds, respectively. Glynn improved to 19-3 on the season by finishing as runner-up at 170 pounds. He lost in the fi nals to Kimball’s Travis Schiefelbein in the fourth overtime. Schiefelbein is ranked ninth.

Poor stretches haunt Sabers

Alumni night Jan. 19 for wrestlers

Boys hoops team falls to Edina, EP BY TODD ABELN tabeln@swpub.com

A trend is emerging for the boys basketball team. The trend is that the Sabers play very good basketball for most of the game but then have a bad stretch that is costing them wins. That happened at Edina on Friday night when the Sabers lost 60-44. The Sabers trailed the Hornets 17-14 midway through the first half and were playing good basketball. Boom — the bad stretch came and Shakopee trailed 39-16 at halftime. Edina outscored Shakopee 22-2 to fi nish the half. “Once again a bad stretch cost us,” head coach Bruce Kugath said. “We played well for 75 percent of the game, but the nine-minute struggle was too much to overcome.” Shakopee played well again in the second half but it was too late to overcome the 23-point halftime deficit.

Swimmers 14th at Invite BY TODD ABELN tabeln@swpub.com

If you just look at the standings of the Maroon and Gold Invite, you probably came away disappointed in Shakopee’s performance. But if you dig deeper into the results, you will see a strong performance from the Sabers boys swim team. Shakopee fi nished 14th out of 16 teams in the Tiger division of the Maroon and Gold Invite on Saturday at the University of Minnesota Aquatic Center with 129 points. In the same meet last year S h a kop e e s c or e d on ly 1 2 points. “While I don’t feel like we had a great meet overall as far as results,” head coach Eric Hills said, “last season, our team only managed 12 points. We had very few athletes make it to the top 16 in individual events. This season, we had many dif ferent guys score points for a total of 129.” Jamie Smith had the best meet for the Sabers as he placed in the top 10 in two events, including finishing fourth in the 100 freestyle with a school record time of 52.01 seconds. He also finished ninth in the 100 backstroke with a time of 1 minute, 2.63 seconds. Another Shakopee swimmer to earn points in two

Sabers shut out in last two games BY TODD ABELN tabeln@swpub.com

The Shakopee boys hockey team has two immediate goals. One: score a goal. Two: get a win. Both have been elusive as of late for the Sabers. T he Sabers haven’t won since Dec. 2 and are currently on a 10-game winless streak (they tied Waconia 1-1 on Dec. 20). Besides not getting a win the Sabers have had troubles scoring. They were shut out in their last two games against East Ridge and New Prague and have only scored 13 goals in their last 10 games. “We are struggling as of late,” head coach Lee Engstrom said. “We are having trouble fi nding the back of the net.” On Saturday, Shakopee lost 6-0 to East Ridge at home. Prior to that, they lost 4-0 at New Prague on Jan. 3. In the loss to New Prague, Shakopee had plenty of chances

Another Saber swimmer to earn points was Kaleb Olsen with a 19th-place fi nish in the 200 individual medley and a 15th place in the 100 backstroke. In the diving competition, Shakopee placed three divers in the top 18. Freshman Eathan DeBona fi nished 13th followed by Joe Edwards in 16th and Jake Tormoen in 18th place. Shakopee earned points in all three relays. The 200 medley relay finished 11th followed by a 17th place fi nish in 200 freestyle relay and 10th place finish in the 400 freestyle.

but couldn’t take advantage of them. The Sabers had 33 shots on net and had four power-play chances but failed to score on any of them. Compa re t hat to New Prague’s night as they had 39 shots on net and converted on two of five power-play attempts. “There have been games where we have gotten into penalty trouble,” Engstrom said. “It is hard to put together 51 solid minutes when you are short-handed.” Shakopee can turn its season around by playing well in the fi nal weeks, which feature all Missota Conference games. In order to do that the Sabers will need to get healthy and start scoring some goals. “We are still struggling with staying healthy,” Engstrom said. “Hopefully we can get healthy, be more disciplined by staying out of the box and start working hard to create bounces that will go our way and fi nd the back of the net.”

DUAL MEET The Sabers lost 98 - 85 to Northfield last Thursday at the Shakopee Junior High School pool. “Tonight was a hard fought meet,” Hills said. “We had a few nice swims this evening and consistent diving.” Edwards took first in diving with a score of 172.55. Myers swam a 24.74 to win

Chaska rally stuns Sabers Hawks finish game on 30-8 run BY TODD ABELN tabeln@swpub.com

When you’re in the midst of a losing streak, it can seem like everything is going against you. That’s how the Shakopee girls basketball team must feel right now. The Sabers lost their third game in a row on Tuesday night when they allowed Chaska to go on a big late run. Things were looking good for Shakopee as it led 32-29 at halftime and pushed that lead to 42-33 with 12 minutes left in the game. That’s when the roof caved in. Chaska went on a 21-0 run to grab a 54-42 lead with four minutes left. Shakopee did have a small 5-0 run with two minutes left but it was too little, too late as the Hawks won 63-50. Chaska outscored Shakopee 30-8 in the fi nal 12 minutes of the game.

“We’ve been having a hard time fi nishing games,” head coach Juan Mitchell said. “We get into stretches where nothing works.” Nothing worked for the Sabers in the fi nal 12 minutes as they have now lost three games in a row, including two in the Missota Conference. In all three losses, Shakopee struggled in the second half and let leads slip away. “Against good teams, if you don’t put them away when you have a chance, they will come back on you,” Mitchell said. That’s what happened last Friday when the Sabers traveled to Chanhassen to take on the Storm. Shakopee led 25-19 at halftime but allowed the Storm to explode for 37 second-half points and defeat the Sabers 56-45. “I was more disappointed in the Chan game,” Mitchell said. The Sabers were outscored by 17 points in the second half against Chanhassen. The two losses drop Shakopee’s Missota Conference record to 0-2. Mitchell believes his team

HIBBERT WINS SNOCROSS RACE AT CANTERBURY

Gracie Vaughan Girls basketball

Gracie Vaughan, a senior, has been one of the hardestworking players since arriving in the varsity program four years ago. Her stats don’t do her justice with regard to the impact she’s had on the program the last four years. As the floor general, every time she steps on the f loor her work ethic, desire to win, unselfish play and how she competes have been models of consistency. She has also served as a great role model for younger players over the past four years. The honor roll student’s other activities include soccer, track and field, National Honor Society and Student Council. Her parents are Karla and Joe Vaughan.

At the U of M Invite, Jamie Smith was a part of 67 of the 129 points our team earned. He took fourth place in the 100 freestyle with a school-record time of 52:01 seconds and fi nished ninth in the 100 backstroke with a time of 1:02.66, a season-best time for him. A senior, Jamie has also been a great leader on the team during practices by keeping the guys on task and motivated. His other activities include cross country, track and field and choir. His parents are Shelly and Jim Smith. Honorees are selected by “The Committee” in the Shakopee High School Activities Department.

BOYS

The two teams each scored 21 points in the second half. At one point in the second half, Shakopee cut the lead to 14 but Eden Prairie fi nished the game on a 10-0 run. “We dug ourselves too deep a hole in the fi rst half,” Kugath said. The loss drops the Sabers’ record to 2-8 on the season. They open Missota Conference play tonight when they host Farmington at 7:30.

More than 11,000 people showed up at Canterbury Park on Saturday to watch Tucker Hibbert of Pelican Rapids top Robbie Malinoski of Lino Lakes in the AMSOIL Championship Snocross Series Traxxas Nationals.

The Edina loss came after the Sabers lost by 24 to Eden Prairie on Tuesday night last week. Just like the Edina game, the fi rst half did Shakopee in against the Eagles. Eden Prairie outscored Shakopee 38-14 in the fi rst half and never trailed.

I’m a pretty, tri-color medium-haired gal who is fi ne with dogs, most cats and children. Oddly, after three years, the past owner says she is allergic to me and gives me to CSHS. I’m friendly, affectionate and would like for you to sit for hours and brush me. I just love it. I’ll jump onto your lap when you sit. I’ll greet you at the door, ankle rub, and follow you around. I’d make a great companion cat, so please give me a call.

If you run errands in the car please take me along, and let’s go out for walks. I am crateand house-trained, plus I know how to sit and come. Brushing and petting make me feel loved. I’m a friendly and affectionate 45-pound beagle/Dobermanmix born in 2005. Kids are nice; playing with dogs is fun; but I don’t like cats. Come meet me and talk to my foster family about being my new forever family.

Two week publishing public notice is required prior to conducting the public hearing. The notice was published in the Shakopee Valley News for 12 days rather than the required 14 days. Mr. Leek asked that Council continue the public hearing to the January 3, 2012 meeting to allow for the 14 day notice to be published. Mr. Leek identified the portion of the street to be vacated as part of the upcoming road improvement for County Road 69. Lehman/Heitzman moved to continue the public hearing on the proposed vacation of a part of Clay Street north of County Road 69, to the January 3, 2012 meeting. Motion carried 5-0.

Mayor Schmitt reconvened the meeting at 7:30 p.m. Bruce Loney, Public Works Director/Engineer, presented Council with the Discussion of Street Funding. Mr. Loney said that in 2010 Council decided to change the Assessment Policy for street overlay projects and not assess any cost of overlay projects. That same year Council adopted a resolution amending the Special Assessment Policy to not assess bituminous overlay projects. In October 2011, Council discussed the Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) and future tax levy. There was discussion regarding street overlay projects and the fact that they could not be bonded under MSA 429 unless at least 20% of the project can be assessed. Staff proposed using existing fund balance in the Capital Improvement Fund (CIF) with an increasing tax levy for funding overlays. Mr. Loney said that the Finance Director, Julie Linnihan, received a memo from Springstead on various options available to the City concerning future funding of street projects. Ms. Linnihan discussed those options with Council. After discussion, Council agreed to look at the MSA 475.58 Street Reconstruction bonding scenario and staff will keep monitoring the need to bond or not to bond as staff moves forward with projects. Mr. Loney presented Council with the Discussion of Sewer Availability Charges (SAC) Credit Policy. Mr. Loney said that in 2008 the City of Shakopee received 1,494 SAC credit units from the Metropolitan Council Environmental Services (MCES) due to Rahr Malting coming off the regional sewer system. Currently a SAC is set at $2,230 per unit for 2011 and $2,365 for 2012. After discussion, Council agreed that staff should formulate a policy of the use of SAC credits and take the draft policy to the Economic Development Advisory Committee (EDAC) for their input and comments. Upon development of a policy and review by the EDAC, the City policy on SAC credits will be brought back to a future Council meeting, along with resolution for Council review and approval. Punt/Heitzman moved to recess for executive session to discuss labor negotiations. Motion carried 5-0. Mayor Schmitt reconvened the meeting at 9:00 p.m. and stated that the council met in executive session to discuss union negotiations and that they took no action. Punt/Clay moved to authorize the appropriate officials to enter into the negotiated labor agreement for 2012 and 2013 with Law Enforcement Labor Services on behalf of the City’s patrol officers, with the exception of Appendix C, which is held open for further negotiation and future settlement. Motion carried 5-0.

Distinctive Destinations Looking for an exotic travel adventure, or at least an uncommon vacation destination? Here are five top picks for 2011 from Stacey Wittig, who writes the travel blog Vagabonding Lulu.

Five hot tipss for cool tripss Story and photos by Stacey Wittig

Tanzania: Safari; Zanzibar: Beach Holiday Experience the wonders of Africa’s wildlife by hot-air balloon. Get an up-close view of wildebeest herds pushing across the Serengeti, zebras zigzagging through endless grasses and elephants bathing in wadis. Go wild on a walking or vehicle safari and then sleep tight in your deluxe safari tent.

Tanzanian safaris take you deep nto African into landscapes.

After witnessing the largest mass movement of mammals on the planet (say that five times), fly to Zanzibar, Tanzania’s “Spice Island” (see photo, page 10). Here on the Indian Ocean’s white sands, cultures have collided for centuries. Stay in exotic Stone Town where Arab harems danced for sultans, Indian spice merchants left splendid architecture and Dr. Livingstone (I presume) began his last journey into the Swahili mainland. Or stay at a beach resort for some of the world’s best scuba diving. www.adventuresinafrica.com.

Hike Peru’s Inca Trail to Machu Picchu.

High Li Living Along Peru’s Ancient Pathways Adventure travelers love the trek to Machu Picchu, the “Lost City of the Incas,” for its blend of l action, rugged beauty and lavish pampering. What do you call a four-day backpacking trip where polite porters carry your pa pack, learned chefs prepare exotic local foods, and hot wine is served at an fee above sea level? Vagabonding Lulu calls it “Gucci Camping.” alpine viewpoint 11,742 feet

A BOAT SHOW DOWN!

The remote ruins, a UNE UNESCO World Heritage Site, can be reached by train, but the hardy – may th road less traveled, the Inca Trail. Acclimate for altitude in Cusco I add fool-hardy? – prefer the with a three-day stay at the lavish Hotel Monasterio, a former monastery dating from 1592. As the oldest inhabited city of the New World, Cusco will charm you with its Spanish Colonial churches, artisan selling crafts from arcades full of history. www.mayuk.com.

We Want Your Support!!

Here’s how it works: Jeans Day - a day when employees may dress for work in jeans. In return, the employee pays one dollar, which goes to area non-profit organizations. Jeans Day is a way to raise funds for non-profits and at the same time boost employee morale. We like the idea of people of the Greater Southwest Metro area wearing jeans for area non-profits on the last Friday of each month. For the next year we are proposing the following non-profits: January Big Brothers Big Sisters – Starting something since 1904. At Big Brothers Big Sisters, we’ve been impacting the lives of children for over 100 years. And we’re just getting started. For over a century, Big Brothers Big Sisters has been helping change kids’ perspectives and giving them the opportunity to reach their potential. And we have over a century of volunteers, donors, and advocates just like you to thank. More than 100 years later, Big Brothers Big Sisters remains true to our founders’ vision of bringing caring role models into the lives of children. And, today, Big Brothers Big Sisters currently operates in all 50 states—and in 12 countries around the world. www.bigstwincities.org

outhwest Newspapers will promote Jeans Day and all the participating businesses in each of its seven community newspapers every month. We’ll provide you with Jeans Day stickers for your participating employees to wear. We also will give you “table tents” to explain to customers why employees are dressed casually. Southwest Newspapers retains less than 10% of the donations to cover the cost of stickers, mailings and other promotional material. Southwest Newspapers also donates all the ads placed in the paper promoting Jeans Day. In short, this program will cost you nothing. It will boost employee morale. It will pleasantly unite all of the Greater Southwest Metro area for a worthwhile cause, and hopefully will raise lots of money for local non-profits. If you have any questions or suggestions, please contact Jennifer Sorenson at jsorenson@ swpub.com or 952-3456477. Thanks, Jeans Day Committee
