news Vikes resolution OK’d on 3-2 vote BY SHANNON FIECKE sfiecke@swpub.com

“This could be one of the best things that ever happened to the city, but it’s also quite possible it could wind up being one of the worst,” Shakopee City Councilor Steve Clay said Tuesday night before voting with Matt Lehman in opposition to a letter supporting construction of a Vikings stadium in Shakopee. Mayor Brad Tabke and Councilors Pamela Punt and Jay Whiting favored the resolution. Clay and Lehman aren’t necessarily opposed to a stadium near Valleyfair, but wanted more questions answered

hen Justin Kaufenberg was a kid, his family would gather around the kitchen table. The theme of the family meetings was always the same: How to make dad rich. His dad, Dave, had an entrepreneurial spirit but never hit upon his “golden idea,” said Kaufenberg, a 1999 Shakopee High School graduate. He did, however, plant the seed in his son. So when starting a business meant knocking on doors from dawn to dusk soliciting clients for his painting business, Kaufenberg did it. When it meant using his student loans to buy computer equipment for a college startup, Kaufenberg did it. When it meant selling his duplex, canoe, even his clothes, and eating every meal from a 30-pound salami his girlfriend picked up from the Hormel Foods sample closet, Kaufenberg did it.

TST Media, based in Minneapolis, is growing at incredible speed. After landing $3.5 million in venture

capital last year, the web developer expanded its offices and is hiring a new employee weekly. TST is also branching out, as organizers of the 2012 U.S. Pond Hockey Championships on Lake Nokomis this weekend.

$5.4M in Dayton’s bond proposal BY SHANNON FIECKE sfiecke@swpub.com

Mary Ann Hron has lived near the state women’s prison in Shakopee for 47 years and says the only time she ever encountered a wayward inmate was when she owned a clothing store downtown. She suspects a proposed prison fence might be a done deal, but

strongly lodged her opposition anyway during a neighborhood meeting at the Minnesota Correctional Facility last Thursday afternoon. Neighbor JoAnn Geis — whose Jefferson Street home was visited by an escaped inmate 18 years ago— was incensed.

Hendrickson receives national award TJ Hendrickson of Shakopee Junior High School was recently honored by the International Technology and Engineering Educators Association as one of 36 teachers nationwide to receive its prestigious Teacher Excellence Award. The award is presented in recognition of each recipient’s outstanding contribution to the profession and to his or her students.

Bond refinancing to save $5.3 million The Shakopee School Board says the school district will save more than $5.3 million through refi nancing general obligation bonds. The school district took advantage of low tax-exempt borrowing rates and the Feb. 1, 2015 through Feb. 1, 2025 maturities of the district’s General Obligation School Building Bonds, and as a result is saving millions of dollars. The School Board agreement provided a minimum savings of $3.5 million when it authorized Northland Securities Inc. to purchase the new bonds. However, the savings will now be much more than that, according to school district officials. The bonds were priced to provide the district a debt savings of $5.34 million. “We refi nanced our bonds and this is essentially just like refi nancing a home mortgage,” said School Board Chair Carla Shutrop. By doing this, we saved over $5 million.” Superintendent Dr. Rod Thompson sees the savings as a big achievement for the board and the district. “One of our fi rst tasks as a board and new superintendent was to look at all possibilities and opportunities to take our district to the next level. This refi nance opportunity was one of the fi rst things we did together and the end result is $5.3 million worth of savings for our community,” Thompson said.

Annie’s Project for farm women to be offered here Women involved in agriculture in Scott County and surrounding areas have an opportunity to improve their farm-management skills by participating in Annie’s Project. Annie’s Project was developed by Ruth Hambleton (a University of Illinois Extension Farm Business Management educator) based on the experiences of her mother, Annie Fleck. Annie was a city girl and school teacher who married a dairy farmer. She kept the books for the farm but lacked the farm-management skills to feel confident in helping her husband with management decisions. However, Annie kept the farm business running. When big decisions had to be made she was there with her records. To increase cash flow, Annie sent her husband to work off the farm while she milked cows and kept an egg route in Chicago. Eventually, her records guided them to discontinue their operation as other farmers with larger equipment and more resources could better run the farm. Through a grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture Risk Management Agency (RMA), Annie’s Project was developed to help other farm women who want to improve their farm-management skills. Proponents say one of the reasons Annie’s Project has been successful is because it is interactive and deals with

real-time problems that farms are facing today. “Farming has always been a risky business” says Laura Kieser, Extension educator. “Annie’s Project addresses those farming risks and helps participants gain the confidence to manage them effectively.” Participants receive information and management training in fi nancial and production record keeping, grain and milk marketing, financial risk management, human resource and time management, retirement, farm transfer and estate planning. There is an Annie’s Project scheduled to begin in Jordan at the Scott County Extension office on Feb. 7. Each session will be taught by educators from the University of Minnesota Extension and local agri-business professionals. A $100 registration fee includes farm-management computer software, class materials and lunch provided to participants for the six-session program. Since farm women have busy schedules, classes are scheduled to accommodate their schedule. The sessions in Jordan will be held on Tuesdays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. All sessions will include lunch. To register for A nnie’s Project, contact Laura Kieser at (952) 492-5386. The informational brochure about the program can be seen online at: http://www.extension.iastate. edu/annie/minnesotaannie. html. Class size is limited to 20 participants.

Investigators still don’t know what caused the fire that destroyed a home in far eastern Shakopee. The blaze is believed to have started in the basement.

Two escape fire that killed pets BY SHANNON FIECKE sfiecke@swpub.com

A young woman and child managed to escape from a house fi re last Thursday afternoon near the Savage-Shakopee border, but at least two pets died in the blaze. Smoke was reported coming from the one-story home on the 9100 13th Avenue E. at 12:41 p.m. Flames were visible within the structure when firefighters

arrived, said Shakopee Fire Marshal Tom Pitschneider. A dog and at least one cat perished in the fi re. “Firefighters deployed attack lines from Shakopee Ladder 15 and Savage Engine 26 to make an interior attack. They exited the structure when they encountered spongy f loors, according to radio traffic,� reported TwinCitiesFireWire. com. “Crews utilized axes and saw to cut through the exterior walls to access the basement,

where it appears the bulk of the fi re was located. Smoke, from brown to gray to white, poured from the man-made openings, as well as the roof of the home as firefighters directed their hose lines into the basement.� Prior Lake, Savage and Eden Prairie fire departments assisted Shakopee. No injuries were reported. The cause of the fire remains undetermined, Pitschneider said Tuesday, although it appears to have started in the basement.

Suspected leader of heroin operation found Police believe they’ve caught the second man involved in a heroin trafficking operation between Minneapolis and Shakopee. In December, investigators discovered an alleged heroin safe house in the basement of a Shakopee home on the 2000 block of Queen Avenue. Authorities charged 24-year-old Armando Diaz-Gomez and later jailed 35-year-old Lauro Vincente Riera for videotaping courtroom staff during Diaz-Gomez’ drug hearing, allegedly at the bequest of the drug cartel. In addition to a locked suitcase containing a handgun and approximately 3 pounds of heroin worth more than $600,000, police allegedly had found the photo of a man called “T� at the Queen Avenue residence. Detectives located an ID labeled Jose De Jesus Ortega-Mora of the same Armando Diaz-Gomez person at a Minneapolis apartment where DiazGomez also stayed with his girlfriend. Diaz-Gomez told detectives a man named “T� was in charge of the operation. In early January, Minneapolis police arrested 29-year-old Ortega-Mora for allegedly selling drugs. When Shakopee police interviewed him, he allegedly admitted living at the Queen Avenue residence for approximately four months with two others, whose names he said he couldn’t recall. He allegedly admitted going to the house to get heroin and cocaine, which he would sell Lauro Vincente Riera around the south metro. Ortega-Mora, 29, was charged Friday in Scott County with fi rst-degree sale of drugs. An immigration hold has been placed on both him and Diaz-Gomez, whose bail is set at $2 million. Both are allegedly in the country illegally.

AmericInn robbed at knifepoint last week A young hooded male walked into the AmericInn in the middle of the night last week, jumped the counter and pointed a knife at the hotel employee, demanding money. The robber fled with an undisclosed amount of cash around 4:30 a.m. Jan. 11. He was dressed in a black puffy-style winter jacket and black pants, had his hood pulled up and was wearing sunglasses and a white bandana, said Shakopee police Capt. Chris Dellwo. The robber was described as a white, younger-looking male, approximately 5-foot-11, and 175 pounds with a medium build. Police are processing some physical evidence and working with the hotel’s surveillance system, Dellwo said. No images of the robber were immediately available. The hotel is located at 4100 12th Ave. E., near Canterbury Park.

Suspected burglar found in California A career criminal allegedly burglarized the home of a deceased woman south of Jordan and was arrested the following month in California. In October, a man reported that someone broke into the house, garage and pole barn of his late cousin, who lived on St. Benedict Road in Helena Township. The 67-year-old woman had died in April. Numerous items were stolen, including furniture, collectibles and expensive tools. Their value totaled approximately $4,500. Detectives discovered that a 38-year-old Chad Cicero Graham allegedly pawned a weed trimmer, saw and other items from the residence at Excel Pawn in Shakopee. Graham also pawned items the same month in Trempealeau County, Wis., police said. Chad Cicero An e-mail alert was issued and the St. Croix Graham County Sheriff’s Office in Wisconsin identified the pawn shop’s photo as Graham. A woman who had been with Graham was also identified. In November, Graham and the woman were arrested in California and he was to be extradited to Illinois on an outstanding warrant. Graham also has outstanding warrants in Iowa and Missouri for parole violations. Graham allegedly admitted to the burglary in a phone conversation with a Scott County detective from his San Luis Obispo County jail cell in California. He has been charged in Scott County with third-degree burglary and receiving stolen property. Both are felonies. Compiled by Shannon Fiecke

Savage cop is receiving therapy BY ALEX HALL ahall@swpub.com

(QT/GODGTUJKR+PHQTOCVKQP%CNN

The 39 -year-old Savage police officer who was seriously injured on Jan. 2 after he lost control of his squad car on icy roads and struck a tree has been moved out of the intensive-care unit at North Memorial Medical Center in Robbinsdale and is now able to talk, according to his CaringBridge Web site. He is undergoing physical therapy and has been sitting in a wheelchair. Officer Frank Mackall of Cottage Grove has been upgraded from critical to serious condition, according to Savage police Capt. Dave Muelken, and has been moved to the trauma unit, according to his CaringBridge page. Mackall was sedated and breathing with the assistance of a ventilator for most of the fi rst week after the crash. The ventilator was removed on Jan. 9. The crash occurred Monday, Jan. 2 just after 1 a.m. on Glendale Road near 137th Street. Mackall’s squad car was northbound on Glendale and hit a tree on the west side of the road. Police believe Mackall was on his way to assist fellow officers on a prowler call in the area of 131st Street and Glendale Road. The CaringBridge Web site that’s been set up for Macka l l can be found at www.caringbridge.org/visit/FrankMackall. Mackall’s wife, Lisa, has been updating the page several times a day since the crash. As of Tuesday, more than 36,000 visits had been made to Mackall’s CaringBridge page and more than 700 entries have been logged in his guestbook. “This week at my Metro Mayors meeting I thanked all of the mayors for their officer support for both of you. I cherished our visit last week and will be back soon,� reads a Thursday morning entry in Mackall’s guestbook from Savage Mayor Janet Williams. A benefit fund has also been established at KleinBank to help cover expenses as Mackall recovers from his injuries. To make a donation via credit card, visit www.mnfop14.org, click the link for donations and enter “Frank Mackall Fund� in the comments field. Mackall has been with the Savage Police Department since July 2008. He and his wife have three children. Mackall moved from Ohio to Minnesota in 20 04. He worked as a patrol officer with the Woodbury Police Department for six months prior to joining the Savage Police Department.

commentary EDITORIAL

Schmitt leaves with final feather in his mayoral cap Today we offer a belated thanks to John Schmitt, who ably served as Shakopee’s mayor for eight steady years. Schmitt, seeking his fifth term in November, was defeated by Brad Tabke, who it’s fair to say won more for his youthful enthusiasm than anything Schmitt did wrong. It’s also fair to say that Tabke won the mayor’s post rather than Schmitt lost it. The reason Schmitt was endorsed for re-election in this space was because he deserved it with his excellent leadership. From the start of his term — a continuation of Shakopee’s unprecedented rapid growth — through an economic collapse that was felt across the U.S. and world, with Schmitt at the Shakopee helm, it was “steady as she goes.” Shakopee handled the growth well, and because of good fi nancial planning and stewardship, was buffeted from the significant economic downturn while still providing basic city services without huge tax increases. Schmitt has a long history of community involvement beyond his eight years as mayor. He was a member of the city Planning Commission from 1972 to 1987 and was active in the Shakopee Jaycees, among other organizations. As mayor, he’s seen the completion of some major projects, including

the extension of 17th Avenue (a goal of his when he became mayor), and the County Road 101 corridor rebuilt east of the river bridge. Schmitt takes great pride in the downtown reconstruction as he sees it now ripe for redevelopment. Another plum during Schmitt’s tenure was the development of the Dean Lake area, which he said was one of the reasons he ran for mayor in the fi rst place. With the city’s help, the area now is home to such places as a Hampton Inn, Ruby Tuesdays, a medical office building and QLogic. And said Schmitt: “We helped Open Systems stay here when they were thinking about moving.” Last week, just days after he left office, Schmitt got another feather in his mayoral cap when it was announced that Trystar Inc., a Faribault-based cable manufacturer, plans to move its operations and 100-plus jobs to the Dean Lakes development. Trystar plans to buy a 28-acre site from Ryan Cos. for a $15 million, 175,000-squarefoot plant on the northeast corner of the Dean Lakes development. Schmitt and city officials had been working for some time to entice the company to move to Shakopee, and the welcomed announcement came last week. Good for Shakopee, and a job well done, Mayor Schmitt.

In a word, write Saturday I took the tree down, and with Buddy the dog happily prancing ahead of me, I dragged it through the pasture. Then without any fanfare, I threw it on the brush pile, thus ending another Christmas season. We like to hang onto good times a little longer at our house I guess, but sooner or later you have to move on and rely on memories and pictures to keep the spirit alive. Please allow me to share just one more story about this Christmas. A friend of mine showed me a present she received for Christmas this year. It wasn’t expensive, it wasn’t new, and it wasn’t useful or even practical. It was just six pages written in beautiful cursive handwriting. Once upon a time a 9-year-old boy named Peter sat down to write. I can’t tell if this had been a school assignment, a suggestion from his mother, or if the mood had just hit him. Peter talked about how much he weighed, how tall he was, the color of his hair and eyes. In Peter’s first essay I learned that his father was a farmer and that Peter had to walk two miles to go to school. The following year Peter wrote a letter to his friend James (and perhaps never sent it), happily reporting about the skates he received for Christmas and he included a “hearty,” thank you for the “kind present” James had given him. The next four essays, written during the next few years, were about Christmas. According to Peter, his “family likes to sing hymns on Christmas evening.” Winter was a “jolly season,” with “sleigh bells jingling on the streets.” The house was decorated “with holly and mistletoe.” But even as a little boy Peter knew that winter was hard on some because he wrote, “poor people don’t like winter because they have not enough money to buy coal to keep their houses warm.” It’s obvious that this was written a long time ago. When Peter sat down to write he had no way of knowing what a great gift he would be giving his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren 90 years later. Fortunately, Peter, or most likely Peter’s mother, saved these writings in a special box. Recently, that box was discovered by Peter’s granddaughter. Recognizing how special these words were, she and her mother made several beautiful copies and gave them to Peter’s

children this past Christmas. What a wonderful legacy. The words of a little boy, written long ago, saved by his mother, then again by him, to be read and shared over 90 years later are priceless. We only have a glimpse of a little boy and his world. Both are gone now, but because Peter’s written words were preserved, his family can learn a little more about him and feel a little closer to the man who was once a little boy. Learn from Peter and write. Write your story and leave a legacy that time cannot erase. Write a letter to a friend, describe yourself, write about your father, record how your family celebrates Christmas or keep a journal, because someday somebody will want to read what you wrote. When I turned from the brush pile toward the barn I was surprised to see the trail left by the tree and me. Dragging the tree through the pasture had mixed the leaves on the ground with the dusting of snow that fell last week. I had left a mark that showed I had been there. Soon time, wind and weather will erase all evidence of my passing. To leave a more permanent trail of life’s journeys, Peter’s family recommends ink and paper.

Legislative session to begin with Robling in a new leadership role Jobs and the economy, capital investment projects, streamlining government, property taxes, a stadium, racino, and more will all likely be on the agenda when the Minnesota Legislature convenes Jan. 24 for its 2012 session. Thankfully, something that is not on the list is dealing with another budget deficit. As chair of the Senate Finance Committee, the Dec. 1 news that Minnesota is projected to have an $876 million budget surplus — after dealing with a $5 billion deficit last year — was a tremendous relief. At least we should not have to reopen all of the budget areas for the remainder of the biennium that ends June 30, 2013. Minnesota’s economy is recovering, which will help us restore the cash-flow account, the budget reserve, and begin paying back the education shift that was implemented last summer to balance the budget. We will hopefully continue to grow our way to economic prosperity by holding down taxes and over-regulation and allowing the private sector to flourish and hire more employees. Helping to steer the majority caucus this session is a new leadership team that I was elected to in December. It is an honor to be selected by my colleagues, but it is also a major responsibility. The Senate Republican Caucus leadership team, with input from all the members, sets priorities, determines schedules, negotiates with the House and governor, assists members with their legislation, communicates information, and gets involved in campaign activity for the caucus. The leadership team includes seven members, including the majority leader, Sen. Dave Senjem, R-Rochester; four assistant majority leaders elected by the caucus, including myself, and two members appointed by the majority leader. Sen. Julianne Ortman, R-Chanhassen, who also

represents three townships in Scott County (Louisville, Jackson, and St. Lawrence), has been appointed the deputy majority leader by Sen. Senjem. Typically, the leadership team divides the work among its members, with the majority leader having major responsibilities. However, since our team is so new, we haven’t determined which members will assume specific responsibilities and we’re all helping out in multiple areas right now. Our first priority is to make sure the legislative session is ready to begin, that agendas are being developed, bills are being drafted, and that we are providing information to and receiving information from our members, staff, and the public. Committee chairs have been reviewing possible legislation, and members have been visiting with their constituents to find out their positions on issues. The leadership team has met with Kurt Zellers, the speaker of the House, and Gov. Mark Dayton as we look for ways to work together. Although we know we will have disagreements, it is our goal to also find common ground, especially in the area of jobs and the economy and government reform and efficiencies. I expect a capital investment bill to be passed this session, and if we

can find an acceptable agreement on a stadium, that will also be addressed. However, I believe any plan using general fund tax dollars for a stadium will not be approved since that is not acceptable to many of us in the Legislature, including me. The Senate leadership team has not set a date for adjournment, but we must adjourn by the third Monday in May, which falls on May 21 this year. However, I don’t expect legislators to want to stay in St. Paul that long since new district maps are expected to be released Feb. 21. Redistricting is completed within two years after the U.S. census in order to make districts proportional again. Few legislators have felt the effect of growth in the last 10 years as much as Rep. Mike Beard, R-Shakopee, and I. We currently represent the most populated House and Senate districts in the state. Senate District 35 has about 30,000 more people now than it will have after redistricting when each district should have about 78,000 residents. However, no one knows exactly which communities will be included in their new district, and with every seat in the Legislature up for election this year, I expect legislators will be eager to complete the work and return home to meet with possibly new and familiar constituents as soon as possible.

Time to borrow, pump up the economy BY CONRAD DEFIEBRE

In these days of sovereign debt crises stretching from Athens to Washington, some may consider more public borrowing a fast road to ruin. But it ain’t necessarily so. Boasting one of the nation’s lightest debt loads, Minnesota is ideally positioned to pump up its economic recovery with longterm capital investment in public facilities. With nearly $2 billion in general obligation borrowing capacity and record-low bond

interest rates below 3 percent, the state has an unprecedented opportunity to repair aging infrastructure, increase productive capacity and get thousands of construction workers off the jobless rolls. It should be the Legislature’s top priority this year, enacted early in the session that begins Jan. 24. That way, many of the projects could get under way during the 2012 construction season, helping to restore the more than 40,000 Minnesota construction jobs that

have dried up since 2006. “We’re by far the most depressed industry sector,” said Kyle Makarios of the North Central States Regional Council of Carpenters. “We have 3 percent of the employment, but one-quarter of the unemployment. You can’t focus on jobs without focusing on the construction industry.” Once upon a time, borrowing for infrastructure wasn’t a partisan issue. Conservatives and

Construction management firm selected for Savage sports dome BY AMY LYON editor@savagepacer.com

SAVAGE — The Savage City Council on Jan. 9 gave the goahead for city staff to execute a professional services agreement with Oppidan to perform const r uc tion ma nagement services for the indoor sports facility proposed to be located at Community Park. “We’re already into the design [phase], and usually you bring on your construction manager during the design phase because that’s where they provide the real value,” said City Administrator Barry Stock. Oppidan, a construction management/architectural fi rm, will be tasked with working with the city to obtain planning and zoning approvals for the project, submitting a conditional-use permit (CUP) application on the city’s behalf, overseeing construction documents and costs, and engaging third party service providers. Oppidan agreed to provide their services at a cost not to exceed $200,000 — nearly half of what the company’s estimate was a year ago. “Staff is very concerned that this is somewhat of a unique project … an inf latable, seasonal dome is something none of us have had any experience with,” said Stock. “We really believe we have so many other projects going on next year that we don’t have the time or the expertise to give to this project if it goes forward to get it done on time and under budget.” About half of the work to be completed by Oppidan will occur prior to the city going out for bids on the project, accord-

ing to Stock. Councilwoman Jane Victorey pointed out that if the city opts not to build the sports dome it could lose approximately $100,000 in fees paid to Oppidan. “It’s the information that we’re going to need or the costs that we have to pay to get all the numbers that we need to finally make a decision,” said Mayor Janet Williams. Victorey voted against the execution of a professional services agreement with Oppidan.

TIMELINE In December, the City Council selected Tushie Montgomery Architects to complete the plans, specifications and bid documents for the sports dome project. Stock said on Jan. 9 that the site plan for the sports dome is nearly complete and preliminary plans should be in order by the end of January. A neighborhood meeting is scheduled at City Hall at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 2. Athletic user groups were given a deadline of Feb. 10 to turn in use agreements to Stock with anticipated hours they plan to reserve in 2012-2013.

The city will use the numbers from the athletic groups to develop an estimate of operating revenue, which the City Council will discuss at its Feb. 13 work session. The item is then expected to go to the Planning Commission Feb. 23 for review of the rezoning, CUP, and site plan/building permit. The City Council plans to vote on those items at its March 5 meeting and, if approved, would authorize the city to advertise for bids. In that case, the construction contract would be awarded in April and construction would be expected to begin in the spring. “There are a lot of assumptions built into that process,” said Stock, noting that a holdup in any area could delay the project.

‘NOT A NECESSITY’ During the public comment portion of the Jan. 9 meeting, a resident of 148th Street, Rachel Zahn, expressed her concern about the sports dome. “This isn’t a necessity. This is not something that the city needs right now,” said Zahn. “This is a huge thing. This is not a stop sign on the end of a road. I feel like this should have been brought to the community to let us vote on this.” Stock told Zahn and other residents that the project will have to go through the city’s normal site plan/building permit approval process. “There’s quite a few steps that still need to be adhered to before this project is officially approved,” said Stock. “The council still hasn’t officially given the go -ahead to this project.”

sort of thing wouldn’t happen again.” Others said the letter doesn’t bind the city to anything, and is necessary to keep Shakopee in the game. In response to concerns from Lehman about the proposal going out on city letterhead, Tabke and SaveTheVikes.org founder Cory Merrifield apologized for not being able to hold a city meeting in the rush to get a plan together before the deadline. “This is simply a concept,” said Punt. “There’s a lot that would have to happen to even land this here, but we have this opportunity, so why not put it out there as an option?

main 60,000-foot facility was designed more for distribution than manufacturing. It has also had to lease two additional buildings due to lack of space. “Faribault proposed a number of locations, but the problem is they were owned by local farmers and land was more expensive than in the Minneapolis area,” Dahl said. “Faribault has been a terrific place; we’ve been here 15 years. It’s not what one city offered over another. It really was about finding a property that’s available.” Half of the company’s work-

Councilor Matt Lehman said he is concerned about future conflicting land uses and the loss of city property taxes. He doesn’t see a need for trust status for the crops being raised on the Shutrop property to fuel the Koda Energy plant at Rahr Malting. The tribe, meanwhile, wants the autonomy that comes with

www.shakopeenews.com | Shakopee Valley News mend you for rushing.” The racino question has to be answered for this to even move forward, Whiting said. “The governor needs to see we’re behind it before we spend a lot of money [on further study],” Whiting said. “We’re going to have to do some continued research, but I’m not sure we want to jump in with both feet yet.” Traffic capacity was a major concern for Lehman and Clay, who worries Shakopee could be left holding the bag if proposed improvements made ahead of a stadium aren’t good enough. Vikings visitors would make up less than 15 percent of the entertainment visitors that come into the city already, Merrifield pointed out. “Six million over the course of the year as opposed to 65,000

to 70,000 in the course of a couple hours is a big difference,” Lehman said. “It’s closer to about an eighthour period,” responded Merrifield, since Vikings traffic trickles out throughout a morning, with tailgating beginning as early as 6 a.m. Clay, who doesn’t believe a resolution is necessary to convey that the council was willing to consider a Viking proposal, said he is unable to properly judge the stadium proposal from what’s been put forth so far. “I’m not sure you could even call it a concept yet,” he said. “It doesn’t appear to be more than Magic Markers on an aerial photograph, along with some very general guesstimates as to cost, expenses and income, probably

written down on the back of a Perkins napkin and a large heaping of political pixie dust. If you’re putting all the weight on getting a casino passed … I don’t see that as a viable option anytime soon.” “It’s not just pixie dust on paper,” retorted Merrifield, pointing to the appendix that shows the research on which the plan is based. L eh ma n is u n happy t he stadium concept wasn’t floated to the council before being presented to the Vikings and governor. “The letters … are on Shakopee letterhead, signed by the mayor, and it has the city logo on top of this proposal, so I’m trying to decide if this is a private citizen initiative or a city initiative,” he said.

“This is an initiative by the mayor of Shakopee,” Tabke answered. “On behalf of the city of Shakopee or on your own?” asked Lehman. “I guess it depends on which way you look at it. Yes, on behalf of the city as a whole, but nothing has been committed or approved by the city as a whole by this body,” Tabke said. Merrifield advised the council “to be forward-thinking, pass a resolution and let’s at least explore our options,” explaining that he’s “not going to chasing if you guys are going to shoot it down.” Despite a lot of online chatter, only around a dozen residents were in attendance, with just two speaking — one in favor and one against the concept.

“With the stadium you’re going to bring riffraff,” said Bruce Smith, a self-described “blue-collar guy” who moved here for “mayb e what t he charm was 22 years ago. … If a shovel of dirt gets taken out of there, we’re out of here.” Jeffrey Weness, who lives on Wyndam Drive, said he’s “looking forward to jobs and continuing to make this an entertainment destination.” Whiting had noted the stadium will bring part-time jobs that could help keep kids off the streets. “Keeping kids off the street doesn’t keep them out of trouble,” said Smith, noting his son got hooked on heroin here, which “probably wouldn’t have happened when our population was 10,000.”

ers commute to Faribault from Minneapolis, so when the company moves, the other half will have to commute, Dahl told the newspaper. Trystar is a leading domestic manufacturer and international distributor of portable and permanent power solutions, industrial cables and power accessories. The company began operations as Bridgewater Tech in 1991, and began manufacturing cables under the Trystar brand in 1993. All Trystar products will be manufactured at the new facility in Shakopee. Trystar has nearly doubled to 140 full-time positions in the last couple years, the Faribault

Daily News reported. “The facilities they’re planning are fairly substantial,” note d for mer M ayor Joh n Schmitt, who saw schematic designs during talks with the company’s owner. “It will be a nice construction for the community. It’ll be very visible from the highway.” The property takes up the nor t he a st c or ner of D e a n Lakes, approximately everything east from where the residential development dead-ends with a cul-de-sac, Hankinson said. Trystar liked Dean Lakes’ trails and amenities, as well as the work force available in Shakopee, said general con-

tractor Kent Carlson, CEO of Anderson KM Builders, who happens to have helped develop Dean Lakes. In additional to a natural park area, Dean Lakes has housing, retailers, restaurants, medical offices and other tech companies. “There’s a hotel literally down the road [for Trystar],” Hankinson said. Schmitt not only knew Dahl from early in his time as mayor, he also believes he personally related well with the owners of Trystar, a privately held company. “I think the city and staff and everybody measured up quite well for what those folks

were looking for,” Schmitt said. “They’ll be a welcome addition to the community.” The move isn’t immediate. Architectural planning is under way. Construction and relocation are anticipated to take 15 months, according to the general contractor. The Shakopee site offers room for future expansion. Trystar’s current lease runs through 2015, and it will stay in Faribault at least that long, the Faribault Daily News reported.

With the land sale in place, Ryan still has approximately 50 acres left to develop, primarily

in the business park, as well as two retail pads. Remaining space includes the 25-acre lot between QLogic and where Trystar will be located, as well as 22 acres just south of Dean Lakes Boulevard, Hankinson said. With business development slowed, Ryan Cos. received permission from the city in June to farm 60 acres of land, which lowered the tax status under a seven-year agreement. Once the building cycle improves, Hankinson believes Deans Lake will be an attractive place for companies that don’t have “a lot of options” for similarly sized tracts of property.

having the property in federal trust. Tribal Administrator Bill Rudnicki gave the example of an organics composting facility the tribe had to build on trust property instead of Prior Lake land due to county regulations. The outcome of Tuesday’s discussion would likely have been different had the BIA granted the city more than just a month’s extension on the comment period. T his

wou ld h ave a l lowed t a l k s between the city and tribe to continue before comments had to be written. The city wants to get a better picture of the tribe’s long-term plans t o i mpr ove it s ow n pl a n ning. Councilors didn’t want to harm the talks currently under way, but agreed to move ahead with an opposition letter “It’s just being factual and being honest,” Councilor Pamela Punt said, about the impacts

of land trust on the city. The City Council did, however, decline to comment on a Supreme Court decision that could have legal implications for the tribe’s land-trust applications. The tribe warned the city that raising the “Carcieri” decision would be a “bright line” issue that could harm city-tribal relations, according to a city staff memo. Counci lors reser ved the right to bring up the Carcieri

decision at a later time, but won’t include any feedback on that case in the letter to the BIA, which still must be drafted. Scott County has said the Supreme Court ruling means tribes not recognized at the time of the Indian Reorganization Act can’t qualify for trust status. The question then is whether the Shakopee tribe, which wasn’t formally organized until 1969, was previously feder-

ally recognized under a wider Sioux group. However, a tribal attorney has said the test under Carcieri is “whether the BIA has jurisdiction to take land into trust for the tribe,” not, “whether the tribe was formally recognized by 1934,” according to a city memo. “I respect the tribe; I believe they’ve always been here,” said Councilor Jay Whiting, “but let the law run itself out on someone else’s dime.”

broad bipartisan support.” It featured $2.9 billion in bonding. “Transportation and economic development and prosperity are inextricably linked,” he said. Even in deep-red Wyoming, Gov. Matt Mead urged more than doubling state capital construction projects next year. “This budget recommends investment in the programs that create opportunities — education, construction, highways, cities, towns and counties,” he told the Legislature last month. You don’t have to take these conservatives’ word for the benefits of public capital investment. Economists at Moody’s have estimated that each dollar of new government infrastructure spending generates $1.59 of increased gross output. This is a greater return on investment than for any other economic stimulus effort except extended unemployment benefits and increased food stamps. It even beats payroll tax holidays, and it’s five times more effective than wasteful strategies like cutting corporate taxes, accelerating business depreciation or making the Bush income tax cuts permanent, Moody’s says. Minnesota can no longer expect economic stimulus from Washington. We also have the second-lowest rate of regular federal spending among the states, 20 percent below the national average. Since tax and user-fee increases are off the table for the foreseeable future in Minnesota, prudent borrowing for durable public

goods will point our way forward. Fortunately, we have the stellar credit rating and fiscal strength to do this. Minnesota’s state bonding debt of $6 billion — not to be confused with our biennial deficit — is well within stringent borrowing guidelines adopted under former Gov. Tim Pawlenty. It’s proportionally one-third that of New Jersey, half that of Indiana, Virginia and the U.S. average, less even than Wyoming’s, according to the Congressional Research Service’s March 2011 report. Along with its enviable borrowing capacity, Minnesota has strong standards to ensure that state borrowing isn’t wasted. The state constitution limits bonding to publicly owned construction projects with a public purpose clearly set forth in law. In fact, as the conservative political leaders quoted above know, the public and private sectors are indispensable partners in the creation of prosperity. In the current economic environment of a lagging jobs recovery, historically cheap borrowing and chronic infrastructure maintenance deficits, it’s time for frugal Minnesota to stick with the job of building what Gov. Daniels called “the backbone to which men and women of enterprise can attach their investments.” Conrad deFiebre is a Minnesota 2020 Transportation Fellow. MN2020 is a nonpartisan, progressive thinktank focusing on the issues “that really matter”: education, health care, transportation and economic development.

progressives alike proclaimed the economic and quality-oflife benefits of excellent public facilities from interstate highways to state college campuses. Over the past 20 years or so, these investments suffered collateral damage in right-wing anti-government campaigns. But now there are signs of a change for the better. Congressional conservatives have backed off from their former resolve to cut federal transportation funding by one-third. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who famously scuttled a Hudson River transit tunnel project, recently called for several billion dollars in borrowing for transportation projects, even though his state ranks third highest in the nation in total debt. Another conservative icon, Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels, turbocharged public infrastructure spending with the help of a $3.8 billion lease of the Indiana toll road to private investors. “The provision and upkeep of firstrate public infrastructure is a core duty of any responsible government, clearly within the sphere of government’s legitimate purposes,” he wrote in “Keeping the Republic,” his book published in September. Virginia’s conservative Gov. Bob McDonnell has proclaimed that in 2011 he “put the most new funding into roads and rail in the state in 25 years” — a $4 billion program enacted “with

REMEMBER WHEN 50 years ago…

Collected by Don McNeil, Shakopee Heritage Society

From the Shakopee Valley News, 1962

The Golden Shovel, the symbol of the U.S. Pond Hockey Championship established in 2006, rests outside the conference room at TST Media’s offices. The championships have been a rallying point for staff and opportunity to give back to the community through the Herb Brooks Foundation and DynoMights, said Pond Hockey Co-Commissioner Kaufenberg.

KAUFENBERG  continued from page 1

STARTING OUT For Kaufenberg, starting his own business was always a foregone conclusion. During his sophomore year at the University of WisconsinEau Claire, the collegiate hockey player started a College Pro Painters franchise. He jumped in head first, purchasing equipment and hiring painters, all before he had his fi rst client. So Kaufenberg hit the streets. Every weekend, after playing a Friday-Saturday hockey series, Kaufenberg jumped in his car and headed back to the Twin Cities to knock on as many doors as possible. It paid of f. By su m mer, he had 250 homes signed up, enough to keep his crew busy for six months — not bad for a colorblind kid who had never painted a house in his life. “I learned more about sales and entrepreneurship than anything else I ever did,” he said. But painting houses was just building capital for his next endeavor. In his dorm, Kaufenberg met Carson Kipfer, a graphicdesign major from Wisconsin Rapids, Wis. Kipfer was doing freelance design and Kaufenberg understood nu mbers, so the two decided to start a custom-design business, Third North — named after their dorm wing. The partners leased office space in downtown Eau Claire, maxed out their student loans and headed to the Apple Store. “We didn’t have a dime, so we bought a computer and a camera and let our tuition lapse,” said Kaufenberg, an economics major. “We figured we’d worry about everything later.” The full-time students hired fellow college kids and arranged their class schedules to alternate time at the office. Kaufenberg, however, admits he rarely made it to class. He usually skipped and made sales calls instead. “The one thing that made it attainable was a lot of what we were doing in the business correlated pretty well with the classes we were taking,” said Kipfer, describing how he handed in client work for school credit. The painting business and Third North taught Kaufenberg that success is about showing up on time, charging a fair rate and working harder than anyone else. There’s no magic bullet, he said; it’s about differentiating yourself from the crowd.

TST MEDIA

In 2005, Kaufenberg and Kipfer started developing a web platform for amateur youth hockey associations. It took two years to create the NGIN (pronounced “engine”) software, which they rolled out as Puck Systems. With only $500, their marketing strategy was, well, primitive. They jumped in Kaufenberg’s old jeep with a hole in the floor and hit every hockey arena in the Midwest using duct tape and 3M adhesive. “That was our whole marketing budget, sneaking posters into bathroom stalls and brochures on the concession stands,” Kaufenberg said. “And it worked.” Puck Systems had five youth hockey associations sign up its fi rst year, including its fi rst, Shakopee hockey. At the time, former Shakopee High School boys hockey coach Ed Loiselle was looking for a better, more user-friendly way to track stats and communicate with parents. Kaufenberg’s product hit the mark. Soon, non-hockey associations were interested in Puck Systems’ platform, so they changed the name to TST Media. In three years, TST Media has grown to 75 employees and more than 2,000 clients. The company has advanced to real-time data, tabletbased systems, mobile applications and league management. Among their clients are the National Lacrosse League and the Star Tribune’s Minnesota Hockey Hub. Shakopee’s youth basketball, baseball, wrestling and soccer associations all use TST platforms. K au fenb er g a n ticipates another 100 percent g row th in 2012. The company has positioned itself as a leader in sports technology at every level of play, Kipfer said. The advancement of technology has made the company valuable for larger leagues, such as semipro teams, college athPHOTO COURTESY JUSTIN KAUFENBERG letics and pro leagues, A successful youth, high school and he explained. collegiate hockey player, Kaufenberg With all those new played several years in the U.S. Pond employees, TST MeHockey Championships before his dia recently expandcompany took over the event in 2011. ed its of fice space

HOCKEY ROOTS But this weekend, work at TST Media’s offices takes a backseat to Kaufenberg and Kipfer’s other passion — hockey — as the company hosts the U.S. Pond Hockey Championships on Lake Nokomis in Minneapolis. TST Media took over the championships in 2011 from founder Fred Haberman, another pond hockey enthusiast. For Kaufenberg, who has been on hockey skates since he could walk, it was a natural fit. Growing up in Shakopee, Kaufenberg started playing hockey as a mite. His dad was active in the Shakopee Youth Hockey Association, at one time board president. But Kaufenberg’s real love of the game came outdoors at Holmes Street Park. It was hockey as it should be, Kaufenberg said — fun, creative and fast. That unstructured, freeflowing style carried over into Kaufenberg’s high school career. Loiselle recalled Kaufenberg begging him to use a Zamboni on the Lions Park ice, then jury-rigging the lights so they would stay on later. Kaufenberg, the Lions Park rink attendant during high school, practically lived in the warming house where he had a TV and bed. Loiselle described Kaufenberg as a Tasmanian devil on the ice, a kid who never quit. “It’s not work when you love it,” Loiselle said. Kaufenberg’s hard work and physical style landed him as one of two true freshmen on a UWEC team dominated by 20-something Canadians. Yet, the 5 -foot-7-inch, 135 -pound defensemen took on his role as a speedy aggressor against bigger, faster and far more experienced competition. “I had far more penalty minutes than points,” he recalled. Kaufenberg still plays open hockey Tuesdays at the Stillwater Ice Arena and skates on the lake behind his Marine St. Croix home. TST holds games twice a week at a park down the street from its offices. Thus, it’s no surprise when the opportunity came along to buy the U.S. Pond Hockey Championships, TST was all for it. Kipfer said TST runs the entire event on its web platforms, such as online registration, scheduling, calendar, standings, etc., making it a showpiece to promote its technology. Running a big-time event means long days and hard work — something with which co-commissioner Kaufenberg is well familiar. Loiselle — who Kaufenberg considers, along with his dad, his greatest life influences — isn’t surprised at all by Kaufenberg’s success. Kaufenberg has always been a leader and the hardest worker on the team. “He took a risk, and I’m just proud of him,” Loiselle said.

FENCE  continued from page 1

“You’re lucky that she didn’t hit you or club you over the head,” Geis remarked about Hron’s encounter at her business. “I’m not afraid,” Hron responded. “I’ve had confidence all my life and praise the Lord for that.” On Tuesday, Gov. Mark Dayton announced $5.4 million for the project in his 2012 bonding proposal, citing a range of security issues and a prison population that’s grown six-fold since the facility opened in 1986. It’s been six years since the last major push for a security fence, but opinions still spanned the spectrum among the dozen or so residents gathered for a presentation the state Senate bonding committee would receive a few days later. “I’m losing sleep over this situation,” state Corrections Commissioner Tom Roy told neighbors, admitting it was probably a mistake to have rebuilt the prison in a residential neighborhood in the fi rst place. Prison Warden Tracy Beltz

www.shakopeenews.com | Shakopee Valley News explained to neighbors the proposed 12-foot brick column and wrought-iron bar fence will look similar to ones around expensive homes. She was also quick to point out the difference from a 2006 proposal, which included an interior chain-link detection fence. It’s replaced by an invisible detection system. This doesn’t placate Hron or others who believe the fence will permanently cement the women’s prison in Shakopee or cause property values to diminish since it’ll make the prison more obvious. “It might be some ugly thing and you are putting up a red flag — there’s the prison!” Hron exclaimed. Although neighbor Gary Har tmann appreciates the present design, he questioned if the state wouldn’t be better off investing the $5.4 million toward a smaller facility for the worst offenders in outstate Minnesota. Some residents claim the city was assured the prison would never house dangerous prisoners. Not so, say prison officials, who claim the original legislation for a new prison campus

Groups of 100 to 150 prisoners shuffle between buildings four times per day at the women’s prison, whose buildings are spaced to largely shield them from outside view and keep them in view of officers. “It’s a large number to watch,” said Lynette Wold, a correctional manufacturing specialist. “Sometimes it’s overwhelming.”

actually included a fence. It was likely nixed do to budget troubles during the Gov. Rudy Perpich era, they suggested. “We’ve always had this population here, this is what we do. We’ve always had people that have been in for murder and such offenses,” said Beltz. Prison employees explained to residents that segregating offenders wouldn’t do much, as the types of offenses committed or even length of sentence often doesn’t correlate with the behavior or escape threat of an inmate. Moreover, it won’t solve the risk of drugs or weapons being dropped on prison grounds and old boyfriends and associates sneaking onto the grounds. “Every time I start reading those reports about staff who have to approach someone that’s on the g rounds that shouldn’t be, it scares me,” said Beltz. “Who’s to say they don’t have a gun? You don’t know what they’re here for.” T here’s not hi ng to stop someone from approaching the prison, which looks like a college campus. “We’ve had drunk people trying to get into the building at 3 a.m., we’ve found civilian clothes on the property and footprints around the building.

We’ve had a litany of kids on the grounds,” Beltz said. In the last five years, 18 intruders have been documented. Some don’t know where they are, but others do, including one man who dropped his cane and took off running when approached. As far as rebuilding the prison elsewhere, Roy predicted a community outcry due to the loss of a major employer. Others cited the legislative infeasibility of funding for a new facility. “ E ve n t hou g h s ome one hasn’t escaped recently, we’re dealing with this all the time,” said Beltz, citing three women who are housed in segregation because they’ve talked of escaping. Another six were sent out of state. Correctional officers spoke of the difficulty keeping their eyes on 100 to 150 women moving outdoors at once, and the stress this puts on the whole prison environment. “ It ’s a l a r ge nu mb er to watch,” said Lynette Wold, a correctional manufacturing specialist. “Sometimes it’s overwhelming.” It takes a huge amount of staff time and resources to manage a prison without fence, Bentz said.

“I never thought about the people who are working here,” r em a rke d r e sident D on n a Case. Following the meeting, Bentz explained that inmates are like residents — divided on the issue of the fence, with some not thinking about the risk from the outside, although others are deathly afraid of someone coming after them. “Most think about it from the perspective of them leaving. ‘Well, I’m not going to leave so why do I need a fence around here.’ When I start talking about keeping people safe here, then they start to go oh-oh. If that was my ex-boyfriend, if they were coming to get me, what would staff do to protect me.”

LEGISLATIVE PROPOSAL Calls for a prison fence go back to at least 1978 from the city police chief for the pre-1986 facility, according to Valley News archives, but have been scuttled due to lack of funding or local opposition. (The women’s reformatory dates back to 1919 in Shakopee.) Bonding for a fence was proposed at least twice by Gov. Tim Pawlenty, but never got past the state Legislature. It appears the political winds

might be blowing in favor of a fence now. On Tuesday, new Shakopee Mayor Brad Tabke told the state Senate bonding committee he’s supportive of the current concept. Former Mayor John Schmitt opposed a prison fence. A former state bonding committee chairman who toured the facility Tuesday reportedly said the project would have previously advanced if there’d been community support, but Sen. Claire Robling of Jordan believes that’s an excuse. Robling, who might author the fence bill, said the project is now the No. 1 priority for the state Department of Corrections. The governor’s support is a big plus, she said, but there’s still no guarantee of passage. The Rev. Patrick Simmons, p a s t o r o f N e w C r e at i o n s Church across the street, is hopeful a fence is built before something bad happens, noting neighboring Sweeney Elementary School. He compares the situation to the mindset of Americans before 9/11. “Nothing like an escape and a hostage situation has never happened until unfortunately it happens,” Simmons said. “All you need is one person — and you’ve got three of them on life without parole — to go over there at recess and grab a child and start negotiating. If that’s my child, oh my goodness.”

The Shakopee dance team concluded its conference schedule on Saturday and moved up a spot in the standings. The Sabers entered the Missota Conference Championships on Saturday at Shakopee High School in fi fth place after four meets. After the conference championships, Shakopee jumped over Farmington to fi nish the season in fourth place. Going into the meet, Shakopee had nine points compared to Farmington 11 points. With the points doubling at the conference championships, Shakopee took advantage of the opportunity to jump over the Tigers. The conference championships started with the highkick portion of the meet and the Sabers fi nished in fourth place behind Chaska, Chanhassen and Holy Angels.

The Sabers fi nished third in jazz, performing to Adele’s “ Hometow n Glor y ” wh i le Farmington was fi fth, giving Shakopee fourth place in the conference with 23 points. The Tigers finished with 19 points. Chaska finished in first after winning every single conference competition. Chanhassen was second and Holy Angels third. Shakopee will compete in the Waconia Invitational on Satu rday before t r ying to qualify for state on Feb. 4 in the section tournament at Wayzata. “I am extremely proud of the performances given at the Missota Championship on Saturday,” head coach Rachel Schweigert said. “The team

We had the strongest finish in our three-year competing history in the conference, with our third-place varsity jazz fi nish, and our fourth-place varsity kick fi nish. I am especially happy for

our seniors, Kayla Schmelz, Sydney Walsh, Amber Daly, Ashley Cornelius, Alissa Trudel, and Lauren Sybrant. Five out of six of them have been on the team for four years, and they have worked so hard the past four years and deserve the recognition and placement

they received on Saturday. I couldn’t be happier for them. We will spend the next three weeks continuing to practice hard and improving to get ready for an invitational at Prior Lake on Jan. 28, and also sections at Wayzata on Feb. 4.”

SHAKOPEE BOYS HOCKEY

OT win stops streak Hot goalie lifts Sabers to victory BY TODD ABELN tabeln@swpub.com

It’s over. The Shakopee boys hockey team’s winless streak was snapped at 11 games. Now it ’s on a w i n n i n g streak The streak was stopped when t he Sabers defeated Northfield 2-1 in overtime at the Shakopee Ice Arena last Thursday night. They followed that up with a 4-2 win against Chaska on Tuesday night at Shakopee Ice Arena. That gives them two wins in a row. By defeating the Raiders, Shakopee improved to 3-12-1 and got its fi rst win since Dec. 2. The Sabers tied Waconia 1-1 on Dec. 20. In the win against Northfield, Shakopee goalie Sean Surbaugh was the difference. Surbaugh stopped 47 shots to get the win for Shakopee. Northfield’s goalie stopped 16 shots. The Sabers scored early in the second period to go up 1-0

only to see Northfield tie it before the end of the period. The third period was scoreless and the score stayed at 1-1 until the Sabers scored late in overtime to get the win. Prior to the win, Shakopee extended its winless streak to 11 games as it lost 5-1 to Red Wing. The Wingers scored three goals in the second period to pull away from the Sabers. Kevin Menke scored the only goal for Shakopee late in the third. The second period was the biggest downfall for the Sabers as they gave up three goals, two of which came on the power play, and were outshot 26-3. Andrew Lyon stopped 41 of 46 shots for the Sabers in the loss. Red Wing’s Preston Blaney stopped 14 shots.

Stormhawks shut down Sabers

Two big wins Sabers top Farmington, Burnsville BY TODD ABELN tabeln@swpub.com

Top conference team beats girls BY TODD ABELN tabeln@swpub.com

Any hopes that Shakopee had of challenging for the Missota Conference title in girls hockey vanished on Tuesday night. That’s because the top team in the conference took it to the Sabers. Chaska/Chanhassen outshot the Sabers 38-13 and lit the lamp six times on its way to a 6-2 win against Shakopee. With that result, the Stormhawks improved to 8-0-1 in the Missota Conference while Shakopee fell to 4-4-1 It was a poor start for the Sabers at the Chaska Community Center as they fired only two shots on net in the fi rst period. Despite that anemic offense, the Sabers only trailed 1- 0 after Kaitlin Storo scored for Chaska/Chan. The second period is where it went wrong for Shakopee as Chaska/Chan scored twice

in 19 seconds in the period’s first five minutes to grab a 3-0 lead. Lauren Hespenheide cut the lead to 3-1 but the Stormhawks pushed the lead back up to three with a late goal. In the third, Abbey Leffler cut the lead to 4-2 only to see Chaska/Chan score two more times before the end of the game.

BACK TO WINNING After having a four-game win streak stopped, the Shakopee girls hockey team got back to winning. They improved to 8-11-1 on the season as they defeated Northfield 5-1 last Thursday in Northfield. Amy Menke scored three times as the Sabers improved to 4-3-1 in the Missota Conference. Chaska/Chanhassen sits atop the conference standings at 7-0-1. Menke gave the Sabers a 1-0 lead late in the fi rst period.

Defenseman Anna Kubes tries to block a shot in front of goalie Karynn Adams. In the second, Shakopee scored four times to pull away from the Raiders. Anna Kubes scored at the five-minute mark. Menke followed that up with a powerplay goal 26 seconds later. After Northfield scored to

cut the lead to 3-1, Menke and Lauren Hespenheide tallied to push the lead to 5-1 Amber Flood stopped 18 of 19 shots to earn the victory while Northfield goalie Lizzy Shellum stopped 20 shots.

“John kept us in the game with his free-throw shooting and made some big plays at the end of the game,” Kugath said. Shakopee opened the Missota Conference portion of their schedule by whipping Farmington 67-45. “We played very well as a team,” Kugath said. “We shot 50 percent from the field and 85 percent from the free-throw line.” The Sabers also outrebounded Farmington 31 to 17. Shakopee dished out 19 assists in the win. “It was a good night,” Kugath said. Jake Maiers led the Sabers with 21 points followed by Tyler Weiss’ 17.

Against Monticello, Shakopee won 44-22 by winning nine matches. The Sabers trailed 13-10 after the 132-pound match but rallied to win six of the next seven matches to pull away from Monticello. Patrick Casey started the rally with a 10-3 decision at 138 pounds. That was followed by a major decision from Jerad Breeggemann, a forfeit to Kendall Belcher, a decision by Glynn, a pin by O’Fallon and Bode.

By the time the 220-pound match came, Shakopee led 38-16. S h a kop e e he av y wei g ht Corey Anderson fi nished the match off with a pin fall in 26 seconds. The Sabers weren’t able to keep that momentum going against A nnanda le/Maple Lake as they fell 33-31 to take second place in the tournament.

MSHSL stiffens penalties in hockey The Minnesota State High School League Board of Directors has approved a recommendation to stiffen several penalties in hockey that become effective immediately. The goal is to continue the league’s efforts to reduce and remove dangerous contact that has led to severe injuries to players. The recommendation came from staff, the league’s Hockey Advisory Committee (girls’ and boys’ coaches), and officials association representatives. The penalties for three infractions of the rules have been significantly increased in an effort to thwart players from making dangerous hits on the ice. Check i n g f rom b ehi nd, which formerly called for a two -minute minor penalty plus a 10-minute misconduct penalty, will now become a five-minute major penalty plus a 10-minute misconduct penalty. The rule also states that any check from behind that is deemed “flagrant or causes the player to crash headfi rst into the boards or goal frame” will continue be a game disqualifi-

The Shakopee wrestling team had another very strong week as it won four of five duals. T he S ab er s op ene d t he weekend by rallying to defeat Chaska/Chanhassen in Missota Conference action. They fi nished the weekend by finishing second at the Monticello Dual Tournament on Saturday. At Monticello, Shakopee opened the tournament by winning its pool by defeating Osseo and Buffalo. In the winners’ bracket, the Sabers defeated Class 2A’s No. 10-ranked Monticello before falling to Annandale/Maple Lake in the championship match. In pool play, Shakopee defeated Buffalo 48-24 and Osseo 48-21. I n t he Osseo match, Charles Kroll, Alex Coleman and Jake Edberg earned pin fal ls in three of the first four matches to build a 18-3 lead. After Tanner Hennen made it 22-3, Osseo won the three next matches to cut the lead to 22-15. Shakopee quickly stopped that momentum by winning five of the fi nal six matches, earning bonus points in all five matches. Winning by pin were Sam Hall, Chaydon O’Fallon and

The Shakopee boys basketball team has turned a losing streak into a winning streak. Not only did the Sabers stop a four-game losing streak by defeating Farmington at home last Thursday but they won their fi rst Missota Conference game of the year. The Sabers followed the victory against Farmington with a win at Burnsville on Saturday to start a winning streak. Against the Blaze, Shakopee outplayed Burnsville down the stretch to pull out the 55-52 win. “We played very well in the last three minutes and were the stronger team at the end,” head coach Bruce Kugath said. Shakopee trailed 22-23 to the winless Blaze at halftime but made enough plays down the stretch to get their fourth win of the season. The biggest plays for the Sabers came from the free-throw line where they hit 17 of 21 attempts including many down the stretch. “Free-throw shooting continued to be strong and was the reason for the fi nal point spread,” Kugath said. John Burlager hit nine of those free throws as he led the Sabers with 15 points.

cation. The disqualified player cannot re-enter that game and cannot play in the next scheduled game either. B oa rd i n g, def i ne d a s a “check, cross-check, elbow, charge or trip” that sends an opponent “violently into the boards” now becomes an automatic major penalty — five minutes — instead of the option of either a two-minute minor penalty or a five-minute major penalty. The existing rule that also states that any boarding check that “causes the player to crash headfi rst into the boards” may qualify for a game disqualification. The disqualified player cannot re-enter that game and cannot play in the next scheduled game either. Contact to the head also now becomes an automatic major penalty — five minutes — instead of the option of either a two-minute minor penalty or a five-minute major penalty. The rule states, “No player shall make contact with an opposing player’s head or neck area in any manner.” Officials still have the option of assessing a disqualification penalty if warranted, and in that case

the disqualified player cannot re-enter that game and cannot play in the next scheduled game either. The advisory committee met on Jan. 10 at the league office. It was a regularly scheduled meeting set in June 2011. The committee members had already established contact to the head and checking from behind as ongoing areas of concern to discuss prior to the recent injuries of the two players who remain hospitalized. At the meeting the committee members immediately established a priority to address the issue of proper contact in the game. The league’s chief hockey rules clinician was also invited to attend and participated in the discussion. The boys’ and girls’ coaches on the committee agreed that the best way to address increasing violent hits was to escalate the penalty structure and to get all parties involved to seek to change the culture of the game. The coaches need to accept the stiffer penalties and need to instruct their players the proper and legal ways of making contact with opponents. The officials

need to make the calls and when the calls are made, they need to be supported by not only the coaches, but also by the players and the fans. “Hockey is a great game, and when it is played the way it should be played, it should be a safe game,” said Craig Perry, League associate director who oversees hockey. “The advisory committee’s recommendations and our Board’s support of the action continue our efforts to protect the kids on the ice, efforts that have been in place for a number of years. “The rules book developed by the National Federation of State High School Associations has made checking from behind and hits to the head as points of emphasis since the 2004-05 season.” The league requested and received permission from the National Federation of State High School Associations to alter the three penalties cited on an experimental basis for the remainder of the current hockey seasons. The permission was required so as to not jeopardize the league’s membership on the national rules committee.

The Shakopee girls basketball team is in the midst of a rough patch. The Sabers have dropped four of their last five matches including losing to New Prague at home on Tuesday night. The one good thing in the stretch is that the one victory was a conference win as the Sabers topped Farmington. Against New Prague, a poor second half doomed the Sabers. Shakopee only trailed by three at hal ftime but then allowed the Trojans to score 34 second-half points as they pulled away from the Sabers for the 60-43 win. The loss drops Shakopee’s record to 7-7 on the season and 1-3 in the Missota Conference. “We aren’t playing well right now,” head coach Juan Mitchell said. D efen sively, t he S ab er s could not stop Anna Rynda as she scored 25 points for New Prague. Annie Dittbemer added 14. The Trojans were the more aggressive team as they attacked the basket time after time. That aggressiveness sent New Prague to the free-throw line 35 times. Rynda alone scored 16 points from the line. Mitchell said the biggest problem right now is that the team is struggling to score. “We are getting good shots, we just aren’t making them,” he said. Those offensive struggles are also affecting the Sabers on the defensive end. “When we don’t make shots

we struggle defensively,” Mitchell said. “You have to be consistent on both ends and right now we aren’t playing defense or offense very well.” Prior to the New Prague game, Shakopee lost at Burnsville 49-46 on Saturday. The Sabers could not overcome a seven-point halftime deficit in order to defeat the Blaze. Shakopee struggled offensively in the fi rst half by only scoring 15 points and they trailed 22-15. The Sabers actually led 13-5 early on but than went six minutes without scoring and trailed 17-13 by the time the Blaze’s run was over. In the second half, the offense picked up the slack but the defense took a step back. They scored 31 points in the second half but allowed Burnsville to match them almost point for point. Hanna Zerr led the way for the Sabers with 15 points followed by Rachel Boegeman’s 12 points. Prior to that loss, Shakopee earned its first Missota Conference win of the season when it traveled to Farmington on Friday night and won, 41-30. That win improved Shakopee’s conference record to 1-2 on the season. The Sabers’ defense was terrific all night long as it held Farmington to under 20 points in each half. “We played pretty good defense,” Mitchell said. Shakopee grabbed a 20-12 halftime lead and extended that lead in the second half. Boegeman led all scorers with 14 points.

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

publicnotices continued from previous page keep the wording “…discouraging cumbersome, lengthy, and numerous amendments to a motion will be discouraged.” Cncl.Lehman asked who would decide if there was a conflict of interest if a council member abstained from a vote on an issue. Mr. Thomson advised that the council member would make that decision in consultation with the city attorney. Lehman/Clay moved to approve and endorse the Council Meeting Procedures, as outlined in the January 3, 2012 memorandum from Mayor Tabke, and clarified at tonight’s meeting. Motion carried 4-0. Cncl. Lehman asked for the removal of 5.F.6, 2012 Liaison Appointments because he had questions regarding the Mayor’s appointment to the Interview Committee. Mr. Lehman said he has concerns about the Mayor being on the Interview committee because people may interpret it as the Mayor appointing certain people to certain committee’s to further his own personal vision. Cncl. Lehman would like to see the Mayor start out in a position of neutrality and not be a part of the interview committee, as has been the case in the past. Cncl. Whiting said he would like to see the Mayor try out the position for a year. Whiting/Clay moved to approve the officer/liaison appointments of Council members as recommended in the January 3, 2012 memorandum from Mayor Tabke. Motion carried 3-1 with Cncl. Lehman opposing. Bruce Loney, Public Works Director, said that Greg Felt, Scott County Project Manager, would like to update Council on the status of the C.R. 69 Improvement Project. Mr. Felt discussed the project schedule, cost sharing, access issues and lighting with regard to the C.R. 69 corridor from T.H. 169 to Atwood Street. The project is scheduled to start April 15, 2012 with a substantial completion date of November 15, 2012. Final completion will be June of 2013. The project cost is

estimated to be $9,379,530 with a City participation cost of $777,850. Mr. Felt also said that all access management issues have been resolved. He noted that there were 28 entrances in a six block area and that 17 are remaining. Mr. Leek presented Council with the Discussion of Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community (SMSC) to Put Two Parcels of Land in Shakopee into Trust. Mr. Leek said that SMSC has made application for two parcels of land in Shakopee to be placed in trust. As part of the application the Tribe also requests that the parcels be declared to be part of the Tribe’s reservation. The application is for approximately 130 acres located in eastern Shakopee along CR 16. The other parcel is about 2.5 acres in size and is located along Dakotah Parkway. Mr. Leek said that the City became aware of both applications when it received, from the Midwest Regional Office (MRO) of the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA), copies of undated letters from the MRO to the Tribe acknowledging receipt of the applications. Mr. Leek said that the letters did not comply with the process set forth in the consent decree entered into in 2005 by the City of Shakopee and the BIA, the City sent a series of letters to the MRO attempting to get the process back on track and to obtain full copies of the applications. The Tribe has also requested that the BIA find there is no need for National Environmental Protection Act (NEPA) environmental analysis for these acquisitions. Mr. Leek said that this kind of analysis is key to the City and the Tribe having a clear understanding of the long term impacts on land use, transportation and other infrastructure. The NEPA analysis would and should occur for future acquisitions which were key to the City’s decision to enter into the consent decree with the BIA. Mr. Leek said that an extension of the comment period was sought

and approved and that the City will have to submit comments by the end of January that address issues such as loss of tax base and land use conflict. Mr. Leek discussed the Tribes need to take the land into trust citing energy diversity, sovereignty, transportation and land consolidation. Discussion followed. Mr. McNeill said that he would take the council’s comments to the Tribe and get answers so that council could make a more informed decision in two weeks as to what should go on record as far as comments and questions to the BIA. Cncl. Lehman asked that Cncl. Punt be informed of the discussion so she can make comments also. Kris Wilson, Assistant City Administrator, presented Council with the Appraisal of the Downtown Fire Station. Lehman/Clay moved to pursue alternatives for selling the downtown fire station building. Motion carried 4-0. Whiting/Lehman moved to table the decision to hire an outside facilitator for a workshop to establish Goals and Objectives for the City until the next meeting. Motion carried 3-1 with Cncl. Clay opposing. Lehman/Whiting moved to adjourn to Tuesday, January 17, 2012 at 7:00 p.m. Motion carried 4-0. The Council meeting ended at 9:26 p.m. Judith S.

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

February River Valley Nursing Center – Mission: Serving vulnerable individuals and families in our community while promoting the leadership role of nurses.

As of 2008, there were almost 5,000 uninsured in Carver County and 11,000 in Scott County. River Valley Community Partnership is a tax exempt organization - 501 (c)(3). Our Unique Model: Our services are provided by Minnesota licensed Public Health nurses and bi-lingual Spanish translators/community outreach providers. www.rivervalleynursingcenter.org

November Minnesota Adoption Resource Network is committed to the right of every child to a permanent, nurturing family. Since 1980, Minnesota Adoption Resource Network (MARN) has been dedicated to the recruitment of adoptive families for Minnesota waiting children, advocating on behalf of adoptive, kinship and foster families, and maximizing opportunities for successful adoptions. Since we are not a child-placing agency, we can fully advocate for the children needing adoptive families. To many, zero means nothing. At MARN, when it comes to children waiting for families, zero means everything. www. zerokidswaiting.org

December CAP Agency – CAP Agency - Organized in 1965, as part of President Lyndon Johnson’s “War on Poverty” movement, the agency began as the Scott-Carver Economic Council providing co-op farming programs, Head Start and Senior Citizen Centers to residents of Scott and Carver Counties. The CAP Agency expanded its service area in 1985, to include residents of Dakota County. The agency’s name has since been adopted to reflect this expansion. Now numerous programs strong, three counties wide and over 40 years old, the CAP Agency offers a varied menu of services in each county, and continues to grow and evolve to reflect its commitment to address the unmet needs of the community. http://preview.capagency.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
