Programs will merge to aid young learners

House chair suggests chain-link prison fence

BY SHANNON FIECKE sfiecke@swpub.com

Shakopee’s early-childhood program is merging two programs in the hopes of better serving at-risk young learners and becoming more fiscally independent. The school district will combine its school readiness and family literacy programs in 2012-13 to provide a more intensive program to low-income, culturally and linguistically diverse students and parents. The merger also ensures the program stands on its own fiscally by ending district funding for the family literacy program. The district has been supplementing the program six years after a federal Even Start Literacy grant ran out. The 16-hour-a-week program offers free classes for families with children age birth to 5 who do not speak English in the home. It includes an adult component aimed at teaching parents

English so they can better support their children. By merging the program with school readiness — a two- or threeday preschool and parent program funded through state aid and early childhood family education (ECFE) dollars — Shakopee will create a richer program aimed at students and their parents for at-need for additional services, said Shakopee Teaching and Learning Director Jayne Gibson. The combination will promote more collaboration between teaching staffs and offer more opportunities for participant mentorship, said early childhood coordinator Kim Latterner said. The merger also ensures students receive at least 12 hours of weekly instruction, as recommended by the state, Latterner said. This year, the district offers two afternoon school readiness classes — Me at Three and More at Fours — and one morning family literacy class.

Police open Southbridge substation BY SHANNON FIECKE sfiecke@swpub.com

It’s only been a couple of weeks, but Southbridge residents are already noticing the cop car parked occasionally outside the former Coldwell Banker Burnet office building at 8170 Old Carriage Court N. With the offer of free space from Shakopee Crossings developer Steve Soltau, Shakopee police opened a substation here last month, giving patrol officers a chance to stretch their legs, eat lunch and file paperwork without a seven-mile drive back

to headquarters. “I’m surprised how many people are already coming up to me and saying they appreciate the substation out there,� said Shakopee Police Chief Jeff Tate. Soltau and former Police Chief Dan Hughes had discussed the possibility of opening office quarters in Southbridge, but the topic was left on the back burner for a number of years. When Coldwell Banker Burnet pulled its regional office from Shakopee last summer, Soltau was left with a lot of office space. He reconfigured the old space — making the entire

second-floor office suites — and revived the idea with a patrol officer who was at the building one day on a call. “We’ve talked about doing it a long time,� said Soltau, whose company no longer owns the retail area in Southbridge, only the office complex and vacant ground. “It’s a no-brainer. We’re excited for the opportunity to let them serve the area easier.� The move should hopefully increase police visibility and time spent in Southbridge, Tate said.

The ornately desig ned fence proposed for the Shakopee women’s prison was dealt a setback last week as members of a key House committee expressed skepticism over the $5.4 million price tag. “I wish you’d come back with a little less,� said committee Chairman Larry Howes, R-Walker. “The wrought-iron is nice. I know the neighborhood would like that, but we don’t even have a fence like that around the governor’s residence.� The $5.4 million security fence — the top bonding priority for the Department of Corrections — was part of the governor’s DOC bonding request introduced to the House Capital Investment Committee on Feb. 29.

Purses at Minnesota’s two horse tracks continue to decline, resulting in horsemen going to tracks that offer higher earnings with revenue generated from other sources, such as racinos, according to the annual report of the Minnesota Racing Commission (MRC), released Friday. The report said card club operations at both horse tracks in the state continue to perform well, but showed a substantial reduction in the number of

thoroughbred and quarterhorses bred and raced in Minnesota. Minnesota’s race tracks are at Canterbury Park in Shakopee and Running Aces Harness Park in Columbus. “Many Minnesota horse breeders are being forced out of business or they are moving their horses to race in states that allow more revenue sources to increase the purses,” said Jesse Overton, chair of the Racing Commission. “The

horse racing industry is in serious danger with an all-time low in the number of thoroughbred foals being bred in the state. This will harm the many small businesses that support the horse racing industry, putting many thousands of jobs at stake.” Canterbury and Running Aces continue to seek legislative approval to allow racinos at the tracks in an effort to boost purses.

PUBLIC SAFETY BRIEFS The following criminal charges were recently filed in Scott County District Court.

THEFT  Charles Michael Willmott, 18, of Prior Lake is charged with gross-misdemeanor theft. In January, Walmart reported that an employee was suspected of stealing $600 in cash over 10 days. Willmott worked at Walmart’s customer service counter and was observed cashing customers’ payroll checks, endorsing the checks for approximately $100 more than the value of the check, and then taking the difference in cash from the register and later pocketing it, the store reported. Willmott allegedly admitted to detectives taking $100 in cash from Walmart six times, which is also the amount reported by the store.  Thomas Martin, 23, of Crystal, is charged with felony check forgery and misdemeanor possession of a stolen/fraudulent check. He allegedly tried to cash a $982 fraudulent check in October at TCF Bank in Shakopee. The teller called police because she suspicious Martin had attempted to cash a similar check two hours earlier at a TCF branch in Minneapolis, where he only received a portion in cash. Martin said the check was given to him by a man named James, whom he had been helping take care of the elderly. However, he said he didn’t know the name of the company or James’ last name. At first, he wouldn’t tell the officer why he was in Shakopee, but later said he had attempted to cash the check at Mystic Lake Casino, but the casino refused. Police later were informed that the checks were counterfeit.  Tommy Bhong Souvan, 37, of Burnsville, is charged with two felony counts of check forgery. In November, police learned of a theft and check forgery that had occurred at Airic’s Heating in Burnsville. Further investigation revealed three company checks were cashed at Money Xchange in Shakopee. They were made payable to Souvan, an employee of the business, with forged signatures, detectives discovered. The total loss to Airic’s Heating due to the forged checks was $5,343. In December, Souvan voluntarily went to the Shakopee Police Department and admitted writing all three checks to himself, according to the criminal complaint. He reported he has a gambling problem.  Shaun Eric Simmons, 26, of Nicollet, Minn., was charged with theft by swindle for allegedly taking $4,000 for a work project on a home on the 24000 block of Johnson Memorial Drive, but never starting the project or refunding the money.

BURGLARY TOOLS Benjamin Wayne Blaschka, 35, of Winona, Minn., is charged with felony counts of fifth-degree possession of methamphetamine and possession of burglary tools. On the evening of Feb. 9, police were dispatched to Stagecoach Road for the

report of two males wearing black traveling in a vehicle near Shakopee Mini Storage. The reporting party, who confronted them, heard alarms coming from the mini-storage. Blaschka, who had an outstanding warrant, had a screwdriver and several tools in the car, as well as a small screwdriver in his front left shirt pocket. In the middle console of the vehicle were bags that tested positive for methamphetamine, according to the criminal complaint. Also located in the car were bolt cutters, a drill, gloves, a headlamp and syringes. In the truck were several empty purses. Blaschka had been on conditional release awaiting sentencing in Scott County for fifth-degree drug possession.

DRUGS  Charles Eugene Richards, 21, of Shakopee, was charged with two fifth-degree felony counts of selling marijuana. During February, Richards allegedly sold marijuana to a confidential informant in the parking lot of Tobacco Express on Vierling Drive and at a home on the 100 block of Second Avenue E. He was then reported to be selling marijuana at Shakopee Town Square, where police approached him. He admitted a female just picked up marijuana from him, but said he had not sold marijuana for more than a month and was more of a middle man in drug transactions, according to the criminal complaint. Richards is on probation for financial-transaction card fraud.  Benjamin Lee Smrt, 25, of Shakopee was charged with fifth-degree felony drug possession. While being booked into Scott County Jail on a warrant, he was found with suboxone on him, charges say. Smrt allegedly admitted to being a regular heroin user. Smrt is on probation for felony check forgery.  Chad Ruud, 19, of Granite Drive, was charged with felony fifth-degree drug possession of heroin. Last month, police responded to a report of a car parked in a cul-de-sac for four hours. Ruud was arrested on a warrant. Inside his pants, an officer allegedly found folded aluminum foil and a piece of a pen with heroin residue, along with several empty aluminum foil packs in the back set. Ruud, who is on probation for burglary, told police he has been using heroin for approximately three to four months and he had stopped calling in for his required probation testing, according to the complaint.  Ronald Kenneth Toivanen, 37, of Shakopee, was charged with two fifth-degree felony counts of drug possession. He was stopped Feb. 13 after allegedly driving erratically and nearly striking a stop sign at Eagle Creek Boulevard and Vierling Drive. He had two outstanding warrants and his driving privileges had been revoked. During a search of Toivanen, police say they found baggies of alprazolam and oxycontin in a DVD case. Shannon Fiecke

Annual township meetings, Jackson election are Tuesday BY SHANNON FIECKE sfiecke@swpub.com

Townships, through grassroots government, offer an opportunity for residents to have a direct voice in setting their tax levy and raising other issues of concern to their local community. This opportunity occurs each year through participation in the annual town meeting, which will be the evening of March 13. In addition, some townships have elections Tuesday. Locally, Jackson Township Clerk Rose Menke and Supervisor Paul Westveer are running unopposed. Election hours are 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. at Jackson Town Hall, 1091 130th St. W. Other local townships elect board members in the fall, but all have an annual town meeting. Times:  J a c k s o n To w n s h i p : 8:15 p.m., Jackson Town Hall, 1091 130th St. W., Shakopee (follows 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. election)  Louisville Township:

7 p.m., Marystown Parish Center (upper level), 15850 Marystown Rd, Shakopee  Spring Lake Township: 7 p.m., Spring Lake Town Hall, 20381 Fairlawn Ave., Prior Lake  Sand Creek Township: 7 p.m., Minnesota Valley Electric Cooperative (north entrance), 125 Minnesota Valley Electric Drive, Jordan During the annual meeting, town officers do not act in their official capacity. It is the electors (residents who are eligible to vote) who set the levy, not the town supervisors. A typical agenda would include a year- end f inancial report, budget discussion, and reports on current or future road maintenance and road improvement projects. Township residents may also make motions on other items of interest which they would like the board to consider at a regular meeting. For more information what happens during a town meeting, go to www.co.scott.mn.us.

Harvest Alliance meets March 15 Preserving farmland, protecting family farms, and the effects changes to Green Acres laws have on taxes are the topics for in-formation and discussion at the annual meeting of the Local Harvest Alliance on March 15. Highlighted will be the current status of the Scott County Highway 8 expansion project.

The meeting takes place from 7 to 9:30 p.m. at the State Bank of New Prague, 1101 First St. SE. Legislative updates on the effort to weaken township and local community rights is also on the agenda. Coffee and desserts will be available.

Area man sentenced for postage-meter theft A Prior Lake man convicted of manufacturing counterfeit postage -meter stamps was sentenced Feb. 29 in federal court to 18 months in prison and ordered to pay $230,000 in restitution. Andre George Mehilove,

32, was indicted on July 6 and pleaded guilty on Oct. 17. In his plea agreement, Mehilove admitted that from August 2006 through April 3, 2009, he created counterfeit postage-meter stamps using his personal computer and printer. The

stamps were copies of stamps he had purchased online. He also admitted using the counterfeit stamps and selling them online. During a search warrant execution on April 3, 2009, at Mehilove’s home and workplace,

authorities seized computers, items with counterfeit postage, PayPal identity devices and online postage labels. Judge Richard H. Kyle sentenced Mehilove Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Minneapolis.

commentary EDITORIAL

Heroin use on the rise: Teens need be warned Last week’s Page 1 story in the Valley News on the rise in heroin use in the area is alarming on several fronts. Heroin is highly addicting, more affordable than other street drugs and deadly. It has made its way as the drug of choice for many abusers in Scott County, replacing methamphetamine use in popularity. The good news is that law officials are on top of the heroin problem from the start, unlike meth abuse, which sneaked up on them. Meth abuse in the county has declined significantly. Scott County is not unique in the increase of heroin abuse. “In Minnesota, heroin is everywhere,” Carol Falkowski, drug abuse strategy officer for the Minnesota Department of Human Services, recently told the Star Tribune. According to a recent report on Minnesota Public Radio, part of the reason behind heroin abuse stems from the rise in prescription opiate abuse. Doctors prescribe opiates — such as oxycodone, oxymorphone or hydromorphone — to help people manage pain from such things as surgeries and accidents. Too often, people become addicted and, unable to secure prescriptions, replace the prescribed medication with heroin, part of the opium family, which is cheap and readily available. State and national health officials say the abuse of opiates has skyrocketed. Heroin cases have quadrupled from 10 in 2009 to 45 last year in Scott

County, according to last week’s report in the Valley News by staff writer Shannon Fiecke. Most of the heroin being used locally is smoked rather than injected, and is an extremely difficult addiction to overcome. “It’s a very, very difficult drug to kick,” said Shakopee Police Chief Jeff Tate, recounting a rare recovered user from Shakopee whose addiction was so bad he forgot to show up for his own birthday party. Local law enforcement officials told Fiecke that most of the local supply comes from Mexican drug cartels, with a devious marketing plan. The idea is to make the drug available at a relatively cheap price — since suppliers know there is a good chance they will have repeat, addicted customers — and then raise the price and lower the quality later. Heroin’s rapid rise took local law enforcement officials by surprise, but they are already reacting, planning to start educational efforts through the Scott County Meth Task Force in hopes of preventing an epidemic like meth. “We had to play a lot of catch-up on methamphetamines,” said Scott County Attorney Pat Ciliberto. “We want to get ahead of this problem. We don’t want to be in the same spot we were with meth in this county.” Parents should discuss the dangers and addiction of heroin with their children, whether they suspect they may try it or not. Even trying it one time could be a deadly mistake.

Accessories for men: murse, not briefcase Good news from the experts who predict the economic forecast. The outlook for the financial horizon may be on the upswing — in large part because of men’s bracelets. The New York Times recently reported men are accessorizing more than ever, and all this shopping (and spending) may indicate an end to the recession — and a start to men wearing assorted bling, including, but not limited to: fancy caps, scarves, bags, showy belts, fur neckware and bracelets. Except we don’t call them bracelets. No, no, no. They are wrist apparel, wrist attire or even wristbands, but never, ever, bracelets. Bracelets are for girls. According to the Times, in order to make traditional women’s accessories appealing to men, designers are renaming said items using only the manliest of terms. It’s all about semantics. My guy doesn’t want a bracelet. He wants wrist wear. See, doesn’t that just sound better? Often, this creative name changing involves adding the letter M to the beginning of a word to make it more masculine — because we all understand the letter M is inherently manly. Take a purse; it becomes a murse. Or perhaps a handbag becomes a manbag. An umbrella might be a manbrella, a necklace a mecklace. (What guy wouldn’t fall for such ingenious wordsmithing?) There’s no telling how far this manipulation of the language might go. It could manifest itself in any number of maneuvers. We might wind up with word derivatives like mankini, manssiere, mencil skirt, mani skirt and even a little black cocktail mess — no pun intended, of course. I try to be as open-minded as the next gal. I’ll take a guy with a new-fangled bag (doesn’t matter what he wants to call it), a bracelet (wristband) and scarf, but I’m not sure I can support a total reformation. There are some lines that perhaps are best left uncrossed. The black cocktail dress might be

one. Pearls another. I’m not ready for a guy to substitute a silk necktie for a string of pearls. Call me crazy. Call me traditional. Just don’t let me hear you call them mearls. Beyond that, however, I view this new trend in trendsetting as a positive step toward allowing men more leeway and inspiration when garnishing their regular clothing. Inspiration is almost always a good thing. Bottom line for 2012: the newest manned-up styles and fashion adornments are helping to push the economic recovery along. The Times reports retail sales growth of men’s fashion accessories is at a 20-year high. Bracelets are the new cuff link. Ascots and berets are making their way into the boardroom. Hip guys are toting bags on their hips — and don’t you dare refer to them as briefcases. Men are binging on accessories — pass me a second helping of a manbag. Bring on the bling, baby! So says the New York Times. I tend to disagree. When it comes to a man’s bracelet — I guess wrist apparel is the preferred description — I’m not buying it, or at least I don’t believe my husband will. His idea of excess bling is carrying a mini photo of our kids on the chain with his car keys. He doesn’t even wear his wedding ring. It’s safe to say a bracelet — however manly — is out of the question. That’s OK with me. I support his lack of

Measuring up to be a good steward When I was younger I lived in a neighborhood in town. My neighbors’ houses were close by, just a stone’s throw away as they used to say. Now I live in the country and my closest neighbor is about three stone-throws away, and that’s if you’ve got a good arm, which I don’t. I asked my wife, Rhonda, for her opinion on my distance estimate. She suggested I go outside and give it a try, but then quickly followed it up with, “But that won’t look very good — you throwing rocks at the neighbors.” For now, let’s just say the closest house is three throws from mine. The other houses are beyond that and I would throw my arm out trying to figure out how far away they are, plus I would make some enemies in the process. So who are my neighbors? Jesus was asked that question, and now I am asking my gas utility company the same thing. About once a month we get a notice from the gas company. They keep reminding us that we are not using the gas they send us as efficiently as our neighbors. They never name these pagans, and I think these unidentified utilitarians are more fiction than fact, but let’s call them the Greens. The Greens are being propped as the settled authority on many aspects of day-to-day activities. The established ideals are changing and even the Joneses are having trouble keeping up. To keep their natural-gas consumption so low, the Greens’ house is usually cool in the winter and warm in the summer; if they shower at all it is either quick or cold; they prefer damp clothes over dry ones and they never cook with gas. The Greens probably don’t own any eight-cylinder SUVs, choosing instead to drive hybrids or the Chevy Volt (apparently so much in demand that this car is hard to find anywhere). Their wardrobe is made from recycled hemp, they eat food organically grown from fairtrade farms and they don’t eat meat. They live in sustainable communities where international law is considered superior to the U.S. Constitution. Well good for them. Their personal preferences are becoming models for responsible behavior. Examples are paraded in front of the masses as “best practices” for living, suggestions are given, good behavior is rewarded (tax credits) and poor choices are punished (taxes and fines). I don’t mind innovation and the opportunity to try new things, and I have a feeling that the utility company may just be

KUCERA COMMUNITY COLUMNIST

“I don’t mind innovation and the opportunity to try new things, and I have a feeling that the utility company may just be trying to help, but I resist having my behavior monitored and mandated. So when the faceless utility company tells me I don’t hold a candle compared to my neighbors gas usage I say, ‘So?’” trying to help, but I resist having my behavior monitored and mandated. So when the faceless utility company tells me I don’t hold a candle compared to my neighbors gas usage I say, “So?” I honestly don’t know who they’re talking about anyway. I don’t know anyone who would fit there ideal. Around here the mix of people, houses and lifestyles would make a good story, but we do not provide enough similarities to be making comparisons. We are different than one another. That’s one of the things that make this a great country; we are allowed to live our own lives. If I want to keep my thermostat a little higher, or pretend that I was born in a barn and keep the windows and doors open, that’s my business. It may be careless and foolish, but it’s not yet against the law. But it might be a sin as we have been entrusted to be good stewards of the Earth. Clearly I have failed; therefore, I will not cast the first stone at my neighbors or anyone else who does not measure up.

Bloodmobile offers thanks to many The Shakopee Bloodmobile wishes to thank the Shakopee community for a very large number of donations. We had 155 units of blood donated on a holiday Monday. We wish to give special thanks to the Community Center for the use of its facility. We also want to thank all our volunteers — callers, reminder callers, set-up and takedown workers, lunch workers, servers and our greeter. We appreciate the monetary donation from the Shakopee Lions. Our next Bloodmobile will be Tuesday, May 15 at the Community Center. Hope to see you there.

Keep ticket control with the owners As a fan of Minnesota sports, I am 100 percent against restrictive tickets. With this kind of ticket, you basically buy the right to enter the venue by showing the credit card you used and a photo I.D. You never touch a paper ticket. In many cases, you can’t sell it or give it away. The only way you can transfer a ticket is to go through vendors like Ticketmaster, which will allow you to transfer them for a fee. Since when do we have to get permission and pay to sell something we already bought and own? This is a free-market issue. I strongly urge our legislators to support ticket transferability.

Scott County staff plans to recommend Tuesday there is no need for an Environmental Impact Statement for a proposed silica sand mine along Highway 169 between Jordan and Shakopee. Louisville Township Chairman John Weckman, who submitted a letter to the County Board on behalf of his board, said residents who wish to speak on the proposed mine, Great Plains Sand, should attend the 9:30 a.m. meeting in the Scott County board room. Originally, the meeting was only going to gather public comment on issues that will be considered within the Merriam Junction Sands Environmental Impact Statement, which is currently under way.

Scott Swanson, 40, has lived in Shakopee for two stints since 1999. He was appointed to the Shakopee School Board in November following the resignation of Tony Bonsante.

Meet Scott Swanson Age: 40 Family: Wife, Janelle; daughter, Kiara, 9; sons, Blake, 7, and Parker, 4. Occupation: Assistant vice president, Wells Fargo Home Mortgage Interests: Theater, shop (he has a woodshop in his backyard), history, skiing, wrestling with and tormenting his kids (his wife often calls him her fourth child)

Swanson, who ran for Shakopee City Council in 2005, jointed the 2010 Shakopee School District Facilities Task Force with newly elected board members Reggie Bowerman, Matt McKeand and Angela Tucker. He opted not to run for School Board last summer, coming off RVTC’s summer musical, “Curtains.” At the time, he felt overextended and wasn’t sure if he was ready for the School Board commitment. “People who know me know when I get involved with something, I’m in. I’m in hardcore,” he said. Then, as luck would have it, Bonsante resigned a month later and the board decided to seek applicants for the position. Swanson, who was being recalled to the facilities task force to assist in planning for next year’s junior high transitions, felt the two-year board seat was the right fit. Swanson said he understands how to take big issues and break them into manageable pieces. He’s not afraid of dealing with uncomfortable issues, calling himself a doer. For example, Swanson supports the proposed second high school and is looking forward to bringing

the issue to the community. He believes when the demographic projections and facility capacities are laid out, the community will accept the second high school — even if they don’t love the idea. “I think when people see [the facts] they will see it wasn’t just a group of people making decisions because they want a fancy new high school. It was people making the recommendation because it’s what makes more sense,” he said. While facilities dominate headlines, Swanson wants to keep academics at the forefront, praising Superintendent Rod Thompson’s emphasis on student achievement. He’s especially interested in ensuring graduating seniors are competitive in the international job market. As a board member, Swanson plans to draw on the skills from the non-profit community theater, such as wrangling volunteers and collaborating with various stakeholders. And while he’s not afraid to get his hands dirty, he’s glad to be joining a School Board well aligned for the future. “Fortunately I’m coming into a good place, and I know that,” Swanson said.

Sand was on the agenda for discussion, but not for action on whether the county should require an EIS. An EIS is automatically required for Merriam Junction, due to its size. Great Plains Sand, which lies along the border of Sand Creek and Louisville townships, drew great concern from the townships, particularly because of worries about silica sand dust. The development completed an Environmental Assessment Worksheet, but county staff does not believe a more expansive EIS is necessary. Louisville Township, in a memo, supports the negative declaration for an EIS, but only if the following issues are addressed through an interim use permit: wellhead interference, blasting impacts, frontage road development and access management on Highway 169, traffic, noise, air quality, potential settlement of reclaimed areas and suitability to support a frontage road and other future development,

retention of suitable on-site locations for sewage treatment with end-use development and long-term prospects for end-use development of the parcel as an industrial use. Recent increases in crudeoil production and rising natural gas prices have created increasing use of silica sand in a process called hydraulic fracturing — also known as “fracking” — which increases the yield of oil and natural gas from deep shale formations. There are two proposals to mine frack sand being considered within Scott County — Great Plains Sand, located at the site of a previous silica mine along the west side of Highway 169 between Jordan and Shakopee, and Merriam Junction Sands, in an area of previous limestone mining operations just south of Highway 41 and west of Highway 169. Together, these mining proposals encompass around 1,200 acres. More information on both projects is available through the county’s website, www. co.scott.mn.us.

For Scott Swanson, meeting his wife, Janelle, was something out of a Disney movie. Literally. He met his wife of 13 years dressed as Aladdin — she was dressed as Jasmine — at a 3M company picnic in 1993. Swanson, 40, hasn’t put aside his theater roots, but he’s looking forward to his next role: Shakopee School Board member. Swanson was appointed to the School Board in November to fill a two-year board seat left vacant by the resignation of Tony Bonsante, who moved outside the district. A River Valley Theatre Company board member, Swanson brings to the School Board a familiarity with strategic planning and visioning. Anyone familiar with theater understands the importance of collaboration and getting stuff done, he said. “Anyone can sit there and point out a problem. You have to sit there and say ‘Here’s a problem. Here’s one or two reasonable solutions,’” he said. Swanson, who grew up in Farmington, has always gravitated toward the arts, playing trombone in jazz band and performing in show choir. He was a theater major at Minnesota State University, Mankato before leaving early to take on minor acting roles, commercial work and voiceovers in the Twin Cities market. But it didn’t take Swanson long to figure out he wasn’t going to make a living in commercial work and took a job with Wells Fargo. Today, he’s an assistant vice president with Wells Fargo Home Mortgage. Swanson has never abandoned the stage; he’s directed and produced several RVTC musicals, including “State Fair,” “Anything Goes” and next summer’s “The Wizard of Oz.” He’s a past Burnsville Community Theatre board member and is active in the Dakota Fine Arts Consortium, which helped gain support for the Burnsville Performing Arts Center.

Harold Ferd Marschall

Harold ”Harry” Marschall was born March 22, 1925 on the family farm south of Shakopee, to the parents of Math and Appolonia “Plonie” (Schneider) Marschall. The seventh of nine children, Harry graduated from St. Mark’s Catholic School and later from the Shakopee High School. Drafted into the United States Army, Harry’s served in the Korean War from 1950-1952. Returning from the service, his brother Elmer and he purchased the farm from their father.

Eight finalists for Shakopee assistant superintendent

It also “makes life a little easier, that patrolling is a little easier,” Tate added. “Their office is their squad car. They need to get out and stretch. It’s an option for them — if they need it to do some paperwork done — outside of their squad car and to remain geographically.” Judging from the reactions Tate is getting, the visibility piece is working. “This is good for everybody,” Soltau said. “It helps bring police to a more easily staged [area] in a node of activity.” This is the only police substation in Shakopee. The Police Department tried this before at the Shakopee Town Square and other locations, but abandoned the practice because of frequent

link fence with black posts, similar to one erected along a trail near his home. He’s not suggesting razor-wire. “Obviously, it’s only 5 feet high, not 12 feet, but it looks very good,” Howes said. “Instead of stone columns, use 12-inch steel pipe painted black and have a nice crown or globe on top.” These comments are exactly the kind feared by residents who met with prison officials a few weeks ago. Opinions are mixed among neighbors about the need for a fence, but opposition will be stronger if the design changes. “I can’t say they’re all wanting it, but of all the designs we’ve had, this is the one that seems to be the least oppositional for them,” said Shakopee prison Warden Tracy Beltz, adding that one homeowner told her he’s afraid of the state doing a “bait-and-switch” for a more traditional design. If the Legislature funds a cheaper fence there’s a strong possibility the city would fail to approve a conditional-use permit for its construction. Rep. Phyllis Kahn, DF L Minneapolis, questioned why the prison couldn’t employ technology to keep inmates

She also talked about the need to keep outsiders off the prison grounds. A woman with not much left on her sentence is likely not much of a public safety risk, Kahn said. Kahn also asked why the fence is “suddenly needed,” given that none of the seven inmates who’ve escaped since 1995 did anyone harm. “That’s what we’re hoping to prevent with a system like this,” Beltz said. Howes was surprised the prison doesn’t already have an invisible detection system. “I would think you should have light poles all around with sensors on them. If someone moves — even a deer — a ra-

dio signal goes into the guard shack,” he suggested. Such a system has limited benefit, Beltz said, because it would only alert the prison that something has breached a point, but it wouldn’t preclude anyone from leaving. The exterior fence also acts as a barrier for contraband, said DOC Assistant Commissioner Terry Carlson. An outside party wouldn’t be able to hide drugs in a specific bush, for instance, with a fence. “Having a barrier is such an important part and we want to be good neighbors,” Carlson said. “We want to have a fence that meets that concern as well.” Committee members also questioned why the prison was built where it is in the first place. “That’s amazing they would build a school that close to a prison,” said Committee Vice Chair Peggy Scott, R-Andover. The city should have had zoning in place around the prison site to prevent such facilities, “but the horse is out of the barn now,” said Rep. Lyndon Carlson, DFL-Crystal, adding that if the state had rebuilt the prison elsewhere in the mid-80s, “we wouldn’t have this issue before us today.” The bonding proposal’s next stop is the House Public Safety Committee.

A committee of Shakopee School Board members, administrators, staff and community members will interview eight candidates next week for a new assistant superintendent position. The candidates include:  Robert Metz, principal, St Louis Park High School, St. Louis Park School District  William (Scott) Hare, director of special services, Belle Plaine School District  Sheryl Hough, principal, Chaska Middle School West, District 112  John Wollersheim, prin-

for approximately 70 children from birth to 4. Families must qualify for free/reduced lunch and limited English proficiency (LEP) services to enroll in the new program, Latterner said. That means some students who previously qualified for school readiness will not qualify for the merged program, Latterner said, since in the past, school readiness students need to fit only one of the Department of Education’s qualifiers: free/reduced lunch, LEP, homeless, Early Childhood Special Education services, low test performance on earlychildhood screening, Head Start waiting list, severe medical condition or mental illness. Latterner plans to hold six free slots in the district’s Stepping Stones Preschool PLUS — a fee-based preschool program parent education — for students in those situations. Those six slots are already full for 2012-13, she added. The district has been reducing its fiscal contribution to the family literacy program with the intention of ending funding by 2012-13. The new merged program will be funded by school readiness and ECFE dollars and continue to provide transportation, Latterner said. She does not anticipate any staff cuts but may add a couple

REMEMBER WHEN 30 years ago... From the Shakopee Valley News, 1982 A si g n of pr og r e s s a nd growth in any community is the revitalization and expansion of its banking and savings institutions. The opening of the new offices of the Citizens State Bank last year attests to Shakopee’s prosperity. “The growth potential for banking in Shakopee is tremendous,” said bank President Ted Rietveld, who is also new to the bank and the community. St. F rancis Hospital has begun a $6.7 million modernization program that will temporarily cause some inconvenience for staff members but will provide many conveniences and a great deal more space once the project is completed. Bernie Carlson is not your average hardware man. He is a certified public accountant, has an almost completed mas-

ter’s degree in business administration and teaches two classes in financial management at St. Thomas College every week. Before taking over the reopened Shakopee OK Hardware Store in November, Carlson, 37, was making $53,361 a year as the City of St. Paul’s Financial Director. With those skills and that income, why would anyone go into the hardware business? “I’ve always wanted to be in business for myself,” Carlson said. “I didn’t want to continue working in a large organization.”

50 years ago... From the Shakopee Valley News, 1962 At t ractive new addition to the Shakopee commercial district will be the new Beren’s Super Fair supermarket, with completion expected in about 90 days. The 72-by-100-foot, allsteel building with a Roman

brick front and two-tone steel panel will be located at Second and Fuller Streets. T he Sh a kop e e C om mon Council revealed that selection of a tentative site for a new post office building has been made. It is planned to erect this building on North Lewis Street on a one-quarter block site. The area encompasses 21,300 square feet. Pumping of flood water at the baseball diamond in Riverside Park was underway. Flood waters did not reach the ball diamond as the emergency dike building efforts proved successful, but the ditch to the north of the diamond’s fence filled up rapidly since water backed up through the culvert under the dike road.

60 years ago... From the Shakopee ArgusTribune, 1952 Kids waste too much time on comics and TV. The timewasting effects of comic books, radio, television and movies were stressed at a discussion meeting of the Shakopee PTA. Speakers were Dr. Roy Pearson and Glenn Patridge. Judge FJ Connoly also spoke on the problem of indecent literature and the campaign of Minnesota juvenile court judges to discourage news dealers from selling adverse publications to young people. Dr. Pearson dealt with the effects of TV and comic books, in particular, on the emotions of children, citing several examples when temporary maladjustment had resulted because of too much emphasis on these media.

Three new businesses coming to town could receive property tax reductions to help fund their projects. On Tuesday, the Shakopee City Council gave preliminary approval to tax assistance packages for Trystar and SanMar, family-owned companies that have both announced plans in recent months to construct facilities in Shakopee. Trystar, a Faribault, Minn.based power cable and solutions company, is planning to move its headquarters and manufacturing base to a new 130,000-square-foot complex in the Dean Lakes development. It is requesting a $1 million, 15-year tax abatement agreement for the $15 million project, which is anticipated to include a second construction phase. SanMar, a Seattle-based app a r el d i s t r ibut or, h a s proposed construction of a 5 8 0,0 0 0 -squa re -foot wa re house distribution facility on Fourth Avenue across from CertainTeed. It has applied for $1.5 million in tax-increment financing over a six-year period to help fund its $36 million project. While Trystar meets the minimum salary standard for city tax assistance, SanMar does not. However, city councilors noted the current policy is likely outdated for today’s economy and SanMar jobs pay more than typical for the warehouse sector and the company also offers robust benefits. Businesses that receive tax subsidies pay the property taxes levied on their properties pre-construction. However, additional taxes generated due to the construction go back to the developer for a certain period of time to help foot the cost of the project. W hi le ta x-increment-f inancing affects city, school and county taxes, tax abatement applicants are only eligible for the city and county portion of the property tax. In late February, the council also gave the green light, with a 4-1 vote, to a $1 million, 20-year tax-increment financing package for a senior housing development. Trident Development plans to construct a $10.8 million, 79-unit independent living, assisted care and memory-care facility near Shakopee Area Catholic School. In exchange for tax assistance, the facility

Jolie

Jerica

Looking for a companion? Jolie hopes you will consider her, as no one claimed her at impound. She has mostly white, medium-length hair has some black patches. She is shy of strangers and if she trusts you, she will let you place her on your lap and accepts petting. Jolie likes to be next to you rather than to be carried around. She is calm, easygoing, quiet and friendly. The vet thinks she was born in July 2010. Jolie wants to be the only pet in the home.

Jer ic a i s a “ r ou g h a nd tumble”-type dog and puppy active. At 7 months of age, she weighs just 26 pounds. She is a terrier/hound mix. Jerica likes leash walks and does OK in the car. She plays fetch, tug-of-war, and with chew toys. Jerica is crate-trained, mostly house-trained, and has quickly learned to sit. She is dominant with dogs, very active around children, and hasn’t met cats. She was unclaimed at impound.

but likely incur the same preliminary shrinkage as has occurred with the current roof. The base cost of three betterquality roof systems range from $860,000 to $870,000. Advantages of the recommended roof types are a longer life span and decreased likelihood for maintenance over their lives. They would all have 25-year guarantees, although the best of the three would be expected to last 25 to 40 years with very little maintenances. The council approved seeking bids for all four roof types. The project includes the tear-off and replacement of the entire roofing surface as well as the installation of an interior access to the roof. Currently, maintenance and ice arena staf f must rest a ladder up against the side of the building to access the roof and ice arena cooling tower for maintenance. The project would be paid out of the city’s building fund, which has a balance of approximately $7.3 million. Other proposed maintenance expenditures for 2012 total approximately $415,000.

 continued from A1

said Assistant City Administrator Kris Wilson. The city originally budgeted $ 300,000 to replace the roof this year, but the City Council was told in September the project could reach $400,000 to $600,000, depending on the quality of insulation under the existing flat roof. The reason for the higher cost estimate given Tuesday is the consultant is recommending the city go with a better style of roof, instead of merely replacing the current singleply, ballasted membrane roof that has been a maintenance nightmare for the city. The current roof, constructed in 1995, has a 15-year life span, but has had multiple leaks in the past five years. In fact, the roof has shrunk terribly around the perimeter and around boxed projections, Wilson said. Another roof of the current style would likely cost $465,500, plus mechanical items. It would carry a 15 -year g uarantee,

would set aside 40 percent of the units for people who earn no more than 60 percent of the median income. As an alternative, 20 percent of the untis must be occupied by low-income residents. The city’s current tax-assistance policy doesn’t address the use of TIF for a housing project. However, the city’s comprehensive plan includes the goal of increased housing opportunities for low- and moderate-income households. Councilor Matt Lehman opposed tax-increment financing for the senior housing project, whose developers said would be built with or without a business subsidy. However, the guaranteed set-aside for low-income seniors would only occur with city assistance. “Your reputation is stellar, the product you offer is outstanding, the market is there,” Lehman said. “I think you’ve got a great product, and I don’t think you need to be limited.” Trystar estimates it will employ 80 full-time employees within two years of opening, with $12 minimum pay per hour and 60 percent of wages $20 per hour or more. SanMar expects to hire 150 full-time employees, with a minimum hourly wage of $9 to $15 per hour. While 78 percent of its employees would earn less than $14.17 per hour, the company’s health care benefit amounts to $ 3.81 per hour. It also offers a two-for-one retirement fund contribution. The city’s current business subsidy policy calls for jobs that pay at least a “liveable” wage of $19.94 per hour, the equivalent of 275 percent of the federal minimum wage. The council, which is considering updating its policy, would need to deviate from current policy to offer a package to SanMar. Trident anticipates hiring 31.5 full-time-equivalent workers, with wages predominantly in the $14 to $19 per hour range. Tax assistance for a housing project is not considered to be a “business subsidy,” however, for purposes of the business subsidy statute. If the city chooses tax-increment-financing for the proejct, it would be considered a “housing district.” The city will hold public hearings on all the requests for tax subsidies. SanMar’s hearing is scheduled for a special meeting of the City Council on April 24. Trystar’s will be held May 1.

Readers chime in on the childhood reads that excited them

W

hat was your favorite childhood book? Your children’s favorite books? Is there a childhood book character you simply can’t get out of your head, decades later? These are the questions we posed to our newspaper and website readers, and to readers of our magazine sister, Savvy.mn. Folks responded, and you’ll likely fi nd the responses — printed here — jogging your own memories of childhood reads. To all of the readers who responded, we say, “Thanks.”

‘Goodnight Moon’ “Alex, what’s your favorite kids’ book?” I asked my 8-year-old son. Without hesitation, he smi led, “Goodnight M o o n .” We hadn’t r e ad t h at i n yea rs. To the bookc ase of laden, warped shelves, we went in search of Margaret Wise Brown’s classic bedtime story. I found the well-loved board book, which had been taped and retaped, but still nearly came apart in my hands. “In the great green room,” I began, Alex leaning on my shoulder. I realized that Alex could now read. We could read this book together. And so we did, laughing at the word mush and saying goodnight to

‘Anne of Green Gables’ As a tomboy growing up in rural Minnesota, I loved books that had strong female characters. “Anne of Green Gables” by Lucy Montgomery was one of my favorites. An orphan, Anne Shirley was adopted by an older, unmarried brother and sister, Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert, who had asked for a boy to help them on the farm. Instead, they got Anne, a spirited, melodramatic redhead who quickly charms the quiet Matthew. After a discussion with his more forceful sister, Marilla, they decide to keep her. The story ensues with one adventure after another with Anne getting into trouble because she acts according to her instincts, not according to society’s expectations. I also enjoyed the Laura Ingalls Wilder series. The books not only tell the story of pioneer girl, Laura, but also give a glimpse of what life was like on the frontier. The stories unfold through the eyes of Laura, who loves to tag along with Pa, and as a result has adventures that other girls do not.

nobody, finding the little mouse on each colored page and whispering as the lights dimmed in the little bunny’s room. Reading Goodnight Moon had been an essential part of our bedtime routine when Alex and his younger sister, Amy, were toddlers. To rediscover its magic now confirms it as the best children’s book I’ve ever read.

A farm girl’s best friend was ‘Anne’

Stuart Lang Shakopee

I suspect my favorite children’s author will be different than most because I was a child during the Depression and World War II years.

My heroine was “Anne of Green Gables,” written by Lucy Maud Montgomery. Having two older sisters who thought of me as a pest, my best friend was Anne, who was even more of a misfit than I. She was an orphan adopted by brother and sister siblings, a bachelor and spinster who farmed on Prince Edward Island and wanted a boy for farm chores. The child who arrived from the orphanage in Nova Scotia was a girl — a red-haired one at that — and thus the adventure begins! There are eight wonderful books following “Anne” from adoption to motherhood. Because northern Minnesota farm children were more isolated in those days, Anne and I spent much time together — the more mistakes she made, the better I loved her. I have all eight books about her — now out of print — collected from oldbook sales, thrift shops, etc. In adulthood, I have been to Prince Edward Island several times and love its green fields, red earth and blue water as much as Anne did. Of my six granddaughters, only one reads the “Anne” books as I did. So, Erin, I leave them all to you — even the first edition!

Judging by the response we received on Facebook (facebook.com/savvymn) this topic hit a happy nerve. Visit the Savvy.mn website to add your favorites to the list. When I was growing up, I read all the “Chip Hilton” and “The Hardy Boys” books. As a father, my sons and I loved reading “Calvin and Hobbes.”

time I see a male lion I want to run up and hug it shouting “Aslan!” Probably not the brightest idea.

A couple that come to mind would be “The Velveteen Rabbit” or “Corduroy.” Both teach compassion.

I pick “Guess How Much I Love You” by Sam McBratney. I loved reading this book to my son when he was little. I think it’s important for children to know that their parents’ love is limitless and constant, and this book warms my heart every time I read it.

Gov. Mark Dayton My mother claims that the reason she taught me to read when I was 3 years old was to keep me out of her hair. I guess I asked for One. Too. Many. Read-alouds of “Mumpsy Goes to Kindergarten.” (She says she actually hid the book once to keep from reading it again, but I found it — ha!) While Mumpsy was my first book, the one I remember best was “Half Magic” by Edward Eager. Not only did it capture my imagination (which was wild in the first place), but it proved to me that books — as well as the stories in them — could take me anywhere, in the world or out of it.

Laura McCallum, Deputy News Director at Minnesota Public Radio

I love Maurice Sendak’s “Where the Wild Things Are.” The pictures are so fun and I love hearing my son roar his terrible roar, gnash his terrible teeth, roll his terrible eyes and show his terrible claws. We have such a great time reading it together.

Heidi Cunningham Schauer

When I was young, I devoured “Pippi in the South Seas” and “Pippi Goes on Board.” My all-time favorite books are the “BetsyTacy” books by Maud Hart Lovelace — I still read the entire series nearly every year. I also loved “Charlotte’s Web” by E.B. White, “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” and “Through the Looking Glass” by Lewis

“The Baby-sitters Club” by A nn M. Martin. I use to love reading those books. I couldn’t wait until the new books from the series would arrive in the mail, along with different gifts. Great memories!

“Love You Forever,” written by Robert Munsch, illustrated by Sheila McGraw. It does a great job capturing a mother’s love through all the chapters of her child’s life, and just like it says, “I’ll love you for always.” What a great message to kids! When my husband and I found out we were having our first child, I also bought the book as a gift to give to his mother. No matter how old your baby is, you love them, and it’s great to know they know that (smile). I get teary-eyed every time I read it (smile).

Terri Schlichenmeyer, book reviewer My mother used to read chapter books to me for bedtime stories each night and I remember being whisked away to the magical world of Narnia each night in “The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe.” To this day every

My favorite childhood book is “Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes” by Eleanor Coerr. The story tells the tale of a young girl diagnosed with Leukemia who, following Japanese legend, tries to create 1,000 paper cranes so that she would be granted her wish to live. It is a story of sadness and of hope, of courage and compassion. I remember reading it over and over again as a second-grader.

I might make people laugh and feel better for a while, but my dad was helping people with big problems that had lifelong consequences.” But he also notes the “fall from grace” of Sam McCloud, a colorful, well-known criminal defense attorney who admitted to tax evasion in 2011. “Dad had five dependent children living with him at the time and he was trying to save his house from foreclosure. However, he went about it in the worst way possible, got in trouble and lost the house anyway,” Ric says. “What my dad did was wrong, there’s no doubt about that. But what I admired about him was that he owned up to his mistake right away and was truly sorry for his actions.

SHAKOPEE WRESTLING

Anderson finishes fourth in the state Senior heavyweight repeats last year’s finish BY TODD ABELN tabeln@swpub.com

W

hat a difference a year can make. For Shakopee senior Corey Anderson it can make a huge difference.

Last year as an unheralded junior heavyweight, Anderson finished fourth at the state wrestling tournament. That strong finish gave Anderson momentum and a high ranking going into his senior season. He started the season ranked No. 2 at heavyweight and maintained that ranking all season long, sitting behind Coon Rapids’ Tanner Lowe. Anderson had a great regular season and won the section heavyweight championship to qualify for his second-straight state tournament appearance. He won his opening-round match against Mounds View’s Mick Nelson by pinfall to reach the quarterfinals, where he would meet Lowe. Anderson wrestled great and defeated Lowe 4-3 to avenge a loss in last year’s state third-place match and earlier loss this year at the Eastview Invite.

That win sent Anderson into the semifinals as a strong favorite to win it all. That’s why they wrestle the matches. Anderson met Albert Lea’s Bryce DeBoer, and DeBoer ended Anderson’s dream with a 5-4 win. It appeared Anderson was on his way to 4-3 victory when he took DeBoer down with about 10 seconds left in the match but DeBoer got a quick reversal just before time expired to steal the 5-4 win from Anderson. That sent Anderson into the consolation bracket where he defeated Eagan’s Colin Fisher 1-0 before losing to Jerred Nieland of St. Cloud Tech 8-4 to finish fourth for the second year in a row. “Its’ funny how the same medal means different things a year later,” head coach Mark Neu said. “Last year, the fourthplace medal was a symbol of great accomplishment. This year, it meant that the goal of being a state champion was unrealized. In wrestling that’s how it goes. Fortunately, Corey didn’t make any mistakes, he just got beat by someone trying to reach his goals.”

THREE OTHERS Anderson was joined by three other Shakopee wrestlers at the state tournament but Anderson

was the only one to place. At 113 pounds, freshman Alex Coleman continued his strong wrestling from the section meet by winning his opening match 4-1 against Stillwater’s Wayde Hall. His reward for winning that match? He got to face No. 1-rated and defending state champion Tommy Thorn of St. Michael-Albertville in the quarterfinals. Thorn topped Coleman by fall to send Coleman into the consolation bracket. Coleman’s state tournament ended with a 4-3 loss to Rosemount’s Dan Rosa. At 160 pounds, Sam Hall probably got the worst draw of the entire state tournament. Hall, a senior, met up with Apple Valley’s Brandon Kingsley in the first round. All Kingsley has done in his career was win four state titles (including this year) and earn a scholarship to wrestle for the University of Minnesota. Hall lasted a minute into the second period before Kingsley pinned him. In the consolation bracket, Hall lost to Andover’s Corey Parsons 10-4. Senior Scott Bode was the final Shakopee wrestler to qualify at 195 pounds. Bode defeated Blaine’s Caleb Butler 12-4 to open his state tournament. In the second round, Park’s

Shakopee heavyweight Corey Anderson receives his fourth place medal at the state wrestling tournament. Cody Linssen defeated Bode 14-0. The tournament ended in the consolation bracket for Bode when he lost 6-3 to Sartell’s Brady Goebel. “Once a year, the 16 best wrestlers at each of the 14 weight classes meet at the Xcel Center in St. Paul to compete for a state championship,” Neu said. “Fifteen wrestlers go home disappointed. One goes home with a gold medal and a smile. Like life, wrestling finds a way to humble the best-intended plans. Being a wrestler takes a very special person. When things go as planned, it doesn’t get any better. Your blood, sweat and

tears seem to be forgotten and you only know that special feeling when you have achieved something great. When things don’t go as planned, it hurts deep inside. It’s a hurt more difficult to take than getting beat in most other sports. It’s personal.” Neu added: “I am the luckiest coach in the state. I get to work with kids like Alex, Sam, Scott, Corey and the rest of our guys every day. I’ve got to work with them every winter for most of their lives. Seeing them compete among the best wrestlers in the state is as good as it gets. The community of Shakopee should be very proud to be producing such a great group of young men.”

SHAKOPEE GIRLS BASKETBALL

Upset bid falls short Kennedy rallies late to top Sabers BY TODD ABELN tabeln@swpub.com

Going into its section playoff game at Bloomington Kennedy on Wednesday night last week, the Shakopee girls basketball team had upset on its mind. With three minutes left in the game, Shakopee lead the No. 4-ranked Eagles and the upset was ready to happen. Unfortunately for the Sabers, Kennedy outscored them 11-4 in the final couple of minutes to win 51-47 and end Sabers’ season. Shakopee led early in the game, 15-11, when the Eagles went on a 10-2 run and went into the locker room at halftime leading 25-19. Kennedy started the second half with 9-2 run and led 34-21 and appeared to be on cruise control. T h a t ’s w h e n S h a k o p e e turned the momentum around and outscored Kennedy 22-6 to grab a 43-40 lead. “I thought we got more aggressive and made a few shots when we had to,” head coach Juan Mitchell said. Sophomore Emi ly Hors mann hit two big shots in that run as she drilled back-to-back threes to tie the game at 36-36. Kennedy grabbed a 40 -38

lead only to see Hanna Zerr drill a three-pointer followed by a layup by Taylor Koenen to give the Sabers a 43-40 lead and all the momentum on their side. However, the Eagles are ranked fourth in the state for a reason and they responded with two straight baskets to regain a one-point lead. Koenen followed that by d rivi ng to t he basket a nd getting fouled while the ball dropped through the basket, giving the Sabers a 45-44 lead. Koenen missed the free throw and Kennedy took over from there. Ken nedy’s Tonoia Wade stepped back and drilled a three to give the Eagles a 47-45 lead with 57.5 seconds remaining. Shakopee couldn’t score on its next possession and was forced to foul to send Kennedy to the line. Kennedy hit both free throws to grab a 49-45 lead. The Sabers scored with 3.4 seconds left to cut the lead to 49-47 but Kennedy’s Jade Martin knocked down two free throws to ice the game and end Shakopee ‘s season. “We made some mental mistakes, loose turnovers and stuff that good teams like Kennedy take advantage of,” Mitchell said.

Sophomore Emily Horsmann looks for help in the second half of the Sabers’ playoff game against Kennedy. One area that Mitchell and the Sabers will look back on and shake their heads is their free-throw shooting. In the four-point loss, Shakopee hit only 5- of-15 free throws. “ T h at ’s t he g a me r i g ht

TOUGH FINISH The loss to Chanhassen, 6935, was convincing. “Not much to say here,” head coach Bruce Kugath said. “We played even with them for eight minutes and then — wham!” The Storm, the 2012 Missota Conference champions, outscored Shakopee by 23 points in the first half and led 42-19 at halftime. The Sabers only scored 16 points in the second half and the Storm was able to win easily. No Saber was able to score in double figures but Tyler Weiss did finish with nine points on 4-of-11 shooting.

MSHSL looking for basketball memorabilia T h e M i n n e s o t a S t at e High School League will be celebrating the 100th state basketball tournament, and is looking for basketball mementos and memorabilia to display at this year’s tournaments.
