2012 city budget to pose big challenges

BY KRISTIN HOLTZ Kholtz@swpub.com

Mother Nature smiled down on Shakopee Derby Days with almost perfect weather — almost. Just as the first firework blasted into the sky Saturday night, rain started to fall on the assembled crowd at Huber Park. A downpour fell during the 10-minute show, leading some people to wonder why it was held at all. Shakopee Derby Days President Jack McGovern said the committee was watching weather radar Saturday when it noticed a storm was brewing. The committee decided to bump up the show, but by the time American Fireworks Display Co. was ready to go at 9:20 p.m., the rain was, too. “It kind of hit us fast and hit us hard,” McGovern said. A 20-minute show was crammed into half the time. While some people liked the finale-like feel of the show, others complained it was too short, he said. Shakopee police and fire departments were monitoring the weather with the committee, McGovern said. While lightning flashed in the western sky, no watches or warning were issued. The fireworks company set up the show Saturday afternoon, placing a tarp over the fireworks until 30 minutes before showtime. At about 8:30 p.m., McGovern said it looked like the rain was moving away, but minutes later it made a sudden beeline toward Shakopee. By 9:15 p.m., McGovern was about ready to postpone the show to

When Shakopee city Finance Director Gregg Voxland retired a few months ago, he remarked that he was getting out at the right time. One-time options have primarily been used to get the growing city through the past couple years without raising taxes; tough choices now lie ahead. Shakopee can no longer rely on surpluses in its debt service levies to get by, new city Finance Director Julie Linnihan told city councilors in their fi rst round of 2012 budget sessions, which ended Aug. 3. “We are at the point where these levies can’t be cancelled every

year,” she said. Although councilors also tightened budgets in recent years and began outsourcing custodial services, this could be their toughest year yet as they prepare for future street overlays and growth in the Fire Department. Linnihan and city Public Works Director Bruce Loney are urging the council to start building a fund to get through a future hump of overlays expected as roads built during the city’s latest growth spurt come due for resurfacing. Linnihan is requesting $200,000 start the new street fund. “It’s a good idea, but is this the

Tim, Rachel and Megan Anderson of Shakopee came prepared to the Shakopee Derby Days fireworks Saturday. A downpour coincided perfectly with the first big bang about 9:20 p.m., which sent many spectators scrambling for cover. Sunday, but the first firework went off before he could call the fireworks company. “If we would have known it would have been a short slam-bam rain, we would have kept things tarped up,” he said. McGovern apologized if his decision upset anyone, but no one can control the weather. “We were kind of caught off guard.” Following the show and rain, the park emptied, except for a blizzard

of mayflies, McGovern said. The Casablanca Orchestra was unable to retake the stage after its speakers became wet. The early Saturday shutdown will cost the Derby Days committee some profit. Final numbers are not in for the weekend, and activity was slow at Huber Park Friday, too, McGovern said. Some good news: the parade route between Adams Street and Spencer Street was a hit with Derby Days organizers, said McGovern.

With one week left to file, all Shakopee City Council members up for re-election have announced they will seek another term, while no incumbents on the Shakopee School Board have fi led. So far, two of the three School Board incumbents have announced they won’t seek re-election and three others have announced bids. And it appeared there could be just one person running for mayor until incumbent John Schmitt fi led Monday for a fifth term, ending weeks of speculation. Schmitt, whom some thought may not run again, said Monday he decided to do so because of

Environmental learning center still $20,000 short

TAKE ME OUT TO THE BALLGOWN

The Shakopee Environmental Learning Center might be mid-construction but the $ 216,000 project still hasn’t reached its fi nal fundraising goal. Shakopee High School Assistant Principal Paul Nettesheim updated the board Monday on the building’s construction, which is being funded mainly by grants and donations. More than $195,000 has been committed to the project already. The city of Shakopee’s Planning Commission recently issued the project a conditionaluse permit to install a 51-foot high residential wind turbine just east of the SELC. The turbine is about half the size of the Shakopee Public Utilities turbine and should not disturb neighbors, Nettesheim said. “There’s no way people are going to hear this,� Shakopee

industrial arts teacher Brian Christian said. In addition, the school is installing 24 solar-electric panels on the building’s roof. The turbine and solar panels will produce enough energy to run a 3,000-square-foot house, said Nettesheim, noting unused power will be sold back out on the grid. Before either project can start, the school needs a sustainability account; Nettesheim is working with the city to see how much is required. Both projects were funded through a $28,000 grant from Shakopee Public Utilities. Nettesheim and Christian hope to complete the SELC by next spring. The community gardens at the center are already being utilized, they said. Kristin Holtz

District hopes to hold o borrowing until winter BY KRISTIN HOLTZ kholtz@swpub.com

The state shutdown has ended, but local school districts are the ones picking up the pieces. The Shakopee School District is wading through the omnibus K-12 education bill, passed during the Ju ly 2 0 special session, trying to fi gure out how to deal with its piece of the $2.79 billion cash flow and property tax funding shift. “[The state] has a 2.8 [billion dollar] IOU out to education after what they did during the special session,� Business Services Manager Mike Burlager told the School Board Monday. The district will receive 60

percent of its allocated state revenue during the 2012 fiscal year — the remaining 40 percent the following year — forcing Shakopee to rely more heavily on its fund balance to cover payroll and bills. Burlager estimates the district will have to borrow about $5 million next spring to cover cash flow. The district hopes to hold off borrowing until January or February, Burlager said. The district could take out a shortterm loan from its capital or construction funds, though it would still have to pay interest on any dollars borrowed, he said. The K-12 bill does include a $ 50 -per-pupil increase in general revenue for each of the next two years.

The increase was a surprise to the Shakopee School Board, which passed its 2011-12 budget anticipating a $100-per-pupil reduction. The bill also includes the elimination of integration aid following the 2012-13 school y e a r. S h a k o p e e r e c eiv e s $ 4 5,0 0 0 i n i nteg ration aid annually. Districts could also receive an $ 85 -per-pupil incentive for each third-grader meeting reading proficiency and fourth-grader meeting his or her literacy growth targets, beginning in 2012-13. The $48.6 million fund is aimed at encouraging schools to work toward the state’s new goal that every child read at or above grade level by the end of third grade. It’s unknown,

however, how much the district will receive since the fund is expected to be prorated, Burlager said. Burlager and district Teaching and Learning Director Jayne Gibson noted the K-12 bill also: I Suspends of the requirement districts set aside money for staff development. I Removes of the Jan. 15 deadline for teacher contract negotiations. I Requires evaluation for probationary teachers and principals annually and certified teachers every three years. I Requires all students to graduate with one-year of biology and one-year of chemistry or physics, beginning with the class of 2015.

At its regular meeting M o n d a y, t h e S h a k o p e e School Board: I Accepted letters of resignation from Sue Voegele, programsupport assistant, Eagle Creek Elementary; Jesus CamachoRuiz, middle school/junior high soccer coach; Alyssa Randall, eighth-grade volleyball coach; Jessica Petersen, assistant volleyball coach; and Rebekah Colbeth, social studies teacher, Shakopee Middle School.

Frisbee searching or burglar hiding? Sand St.

Lewis St.

It was 11:15 p.m. and Marc Stevenson was crawling around the roof of a townhome complex on Lewis Street S. The married father of two lives down the block and claimed he was searching for his kids’ lost Frisbee. But police suspect he was hiding following an attempted burglary nearby. According to a criminal complaint fi led last month, a family heard someone moving along the roof of its Lewis Street townhome as it watched a movie the night of July 6. Their next-door neighbor heard noises for several minutes before a light shone through his upstairs skylight window. He thought someone was looking in to see if anyone was home. When Shakopee police Sgt. Er ron Ba l fanz ar rived, he shone a light on the roof and saw Stevenson run up the roof peak away from the officer. The man took off on the ground, and Balfanz chased after him toward Highway 169. Stevenson scaled two fences before falling and being caught by an officer, according to police. Stevenson was covered in sweat, police said, and had pink gloves and a f lashlight

on him. He told of ficers he lived nearby on Appleblossom Lane and was on the roof looking for a Frisbee his kids lost on the Fourth of July. No Frisbee was ever found, police said. Fifteen minutes earlier, a man matching Stevenson’s description removed a screen from a residence on Braeburn Drive. The reporting party saw a male in a white T-shirt run from his house after opening a window. Balfanz was investigating that report when the call came in from Lewis Street. Assuming the man was Stevenson, police Capt. Chris Dellwo surmised Stevenson may have gone airborne afterward, peering into townhomes to fi nd a place to hide. The screen is being tested for fi ngerprints, but none may be

PUBLIC SAFETY BRIEFS

Man gets jail, probation for child porn Jesse Edwin Beaupre, 31, of Shakopee pleaded guilty last month to three counts of felony child pornography possession and received a 15-month stayed prison sentence from Scott County District Judge Diane Hanson. He must serve 90 days in jail and register as a predatory offender. Conditions of his five-year probation include abstaining from sexually explicit material, alcohol and illegal drugs. He will be subject to random computer searches and is barred from contact with minors. Beaupre’s home on Jarmann Lane was searched in April 2010 after a computer at the residence he shared with his girlfriend and brother were found to contain suspected child pornography fi les on the Internet. Beaupre initially told police he downloads porn, but has never run across questionable porn and believes that child porn is disgusting. Police uncovered a CD containing photos of Beaupre, as well as suspected child pornography. In all, officers found 61 video fi les of suspected child porn. The fi les included children engaged in sexual acts with adults. The videos were submitted to the national Center for Missing and Exploited Children, which was able to identify real child victims. In August, Beaupre told detectives if there were images of child porn on his computer discs, he must have burned them inadvertently. He then admitted viewing two fi les that could be child pornography and described them. They included a young girl and a young boy. Asked if he was curious about downloading child pornography, police said Beaupre responded, “a little bit.” Shannon Fiecke

Women arrested twice for prostitution A Shakopee detective went undercover two weeks ago to arrest a 48-year-old woman police say was prostituting herself out of her subsidized townhome on Kennsington Drive. After she was released from jail, Deanna Karen Cramer allegedly reposted a personal ad using a different alias, this time as a 40-year-old natural redhead named Kennedy offering a “hot time.” On Friday, an undercover officer from the Southwest Metro Drug Task Force arranged another meeting, arresting Cramer again. On both days, police also found a crack-pipe, said Shakopee police Sgt. John Buetow, who arranged the fi rst appointment, offering cash for sex. In the fi rst incident, police arrested Cramer both for prostitution and child endangerment as she had a 17-year-old son in the home, said Buetow. Police were alerted to Cramer thanks to a tip left on the department’s anonymous tip-line. Her ad was listed under the escort service on the online classifieds website Backpage. In a different ad, she and another woman offer services together in Andover. Police have only arrested Cramer thus far, although they recorded a couple of license plate numbers off vehicles that went to her home. Buetow said Cramer was previously arrested in the city Bloomington for prostitution because of an ad she posted on Craigslist. Shannon Fiecke

Shakopee boy accused of attacking teen Was it a robbery or drug deal gone bad? A 17-year-old boy is accused of attacking another 17-yearold Shakopee boy with a knife in the parking lot of Cub Foods about 11 p.m. Aug. 3. The two, who met at Shakopee Derby Days, were riding around town in the victim’s vehicle with two friends. The suspect and his friend were seated in the back. The victim told police the other two stole his cash. After he was wounded, the teen followed his alleged attacker, who fled on foot, to Country Inn & Suites. He yelled for people to call 911, said Shakopee police Sgt. John Buetow. The victim suffered multiple wounds requiring four stitches, but Buetow was unsure where the victim was cut. There was a lot of blood loss in the car, he said. The victim and his friend, an 18-year-old Apple Valley man, told police the suspect’s friend took off with $180 in cash. They claim the victim was robbed. The 17-year-old suspect, who was found with a white substance on him, told police it was a drug deal gone bad. He was arrested on suspicion of aggravated robbery, second-degree assault and minor consumption. Police forwarded the case to the Scott County Attorney’s Office for charging. Buetow said prosecutors will seek to charge the suspect as an adult. Shannon Fiecke

found if it was Stevenson since he had gloves, Dellwo said. Stevenson smel led of alcohol when he was arrested and his eyes were bloodshot and watery, officers said. His blood-alcohol content measured 0.11 percent on a preliminary breath test (0.08 is considered legal ly drunk) . Police confiscated a metal cigarette pipe from him, cigarette rolling papers and a small bag containing an unknown substance. Stevenson was charged with felony possession of burglary tools (gloves and f lashlight), as well as obstructing the legal process, fleeing a police officer and possession of drug paraphernalia, all misdemeanors or petty misdemeanors. His record includes drunken driving and fi fth-degree drug possession from a 2009 traffic stop in Freeborn County. Stevenson was released from jail on his own recognizance. His last court hearing at Scott County District Court was Aug. 1. He did not respond to a request for comment from the Valley News. Stevenson and his wife have owned a townhome on Ap pleblossom Lane since 2004. Shannon Fiecke

City teen charged with sale of fake heroin A Shakopee teen could face a year in prison for allegedly selling fake heroin. A confidential informant thought he was purchasing $85 worth of heroin from 18-yearold Chad Kristopher Ruud earlier this summer. But instead, police say, Ruud sold him a package of brown sugar. Last month, Ruud was one of four area teens arrested for allegedly used a parent’s Mercedes as the getaway car in a Jordan burglary. They are accused of stashing stolen shotguns, rifles and a bottle of champagne in the woods near Jordan Middle School. Ruud remains jailed on that offense. According to the criminal complaint fi led in Scott County District Court, a confidential informant met Ruud at the Kwik Trip in Shakopee on June 1. The informant paid Ruud $ 85 and received a blue balloon (how heroin is often packaged) with a brown powdery substance, consistent with the appearance of heroin. Ruud was arrested and told police he used to sell heroin, which is how people know to call him, but he is trying to get off heroin himself. He said since he didn’t have any heroin, he used brown sugar instead. A male who was with Ruud at Kwik Trip told police Ruud was expecting a shipment of heroin the next day. The package weighed approximately 5 grams. It came back negative for a controlled substance in field tests. Detectives believe the substance is brown sugar, but sent it for further testing to the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension. Ruud is charged with three felony counts: selling a non-controlled substance as a narcotic, packaging a non-controlled substance in a manner used for delivering illegal drugs and charging more than the value of a non-controlled substance. W hile the charges carry a maximum penalty of three years in prison or a $ 20,000 fi ne, the penalty for someone with a low criminal history score would likely be one year in prison, under the state sentencing guidelines. The sale of the same amount of real heroin would likely be a 48-month prison sentence. The sting was conducted by the Southwest Metro Drug Task Force. Shakopee Police Chief Jeff Tate said heroin is on the uptick in this area. In the past, police may have seen one case of heroin per year. “It’s very disturbing,” Tate said. “Heroin is one of the nastiest and most addictive drugs.”

STATE CLAMPS DOWN ON DWI’S! Effective July 1, 2011, new legislation passed by Governor Tim Pawlenty strengthens Minnesota DWI laws. Governor Pawlenty’s new legislation affects DWI offenders with certain aggravating factors. Currently Minnesota law states that a first time DWI offender with an alcohol-concentration of .20 or more is charged with a gross misdemeanor and loses their license for 180 days. The new legislation lowers the alcohol concentration to .16 or more which is twice the legal limit (.08). The license revocation period is extended to one year. The same is true for a second time DWI offender regardless of their alcohol concentration, their license will be revoked for one year as opposed to 180 days. Under the new legislation a DWI offender that refuses to submit to a chemical test will lose their license for a period of two years as opposed to the current penalty of one year. The two year revocation period also applies to a second time DWI offender with an alcohol concentration of .16 or more. A person charged with their third DWI in ten years will lose their license for three years which is a leap from the current penalty of a one year cancellation of the driver’s license. Minnesota DWI penalties are harsh and are only going to get more severe. If convicted, a DWI offender could face large fines and jail time. For over 10 years, Minnesota law makers have successfully fought to strengthen the penalties for DWI offenders. It goes without saying that a DWI charge is something that should be taken seriously and should be handled by consulting with an experienced Minnesota DWI Attorney. Call Richard Swanson at (952) 448-9091 or, after hours at (612) 382-6080.

Fire Department’s plan could save money, time Times are changing, even for the Shakopee Fire Department. The city of Shakopee has grown from a sleepy Minnesota River town to a thriving suburban community of some 36,000 people. In the old days, a single fi re hall centrally located in downtown Shakopee with 30 eager volunteer fi refighters responding to calls was the norm. Today, the city has two fi re halls. One of the two, the downtown station, will soon be replaced by one near Lions Park and a third station will eventually be built on the eastern side of the city. Also, the city now has a full-time fi re chief and a fi re marshal. There are other changes occurring in modern Shakopee. Today, for a variety of reasons, the Fire Department is having a difficult time getting a sufficient number of fi refighters to respond to daytime calls. One major reason has to do with the economy: local employers have fewer people these days and many will not allow their workers to leave to answer a fi re call. Several other Twin Cities communities have experienced the same situation and have come up with a solution, which Shakopee Fire Chief Rick Coleman wants to adopt here: The so-called duty-crew system, which the local department has been studying for two years. Instead of hiring full-time daytime fi refi ghters, the department would assign volunteer fi refi ghters to occupy the main fi re station in daytime intervals of three hours. Under this concept, crews of three to five would work out of the station on Vierling Drive during daytime hours — such as 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. — Monday through Friday. The move is advantageous on two fronts: it solves the staffi ng issues during the day and it would be a money-saver, according to Coleman. It would eliminate the need for

several of the department’s 46 volunteer fi refi ghters to respond to calls for which they are not needed. The department responded to more than 600 calls last year, with many of those non-emergencies. “I can count on my hands every week the number of residential fi re alarms and carbon monoxide alarms that five people can take care of,” Coleman said. But under the current system, many more might respond. The net cost to implement the duty-crew program is roughly $50, said Coleman. While the actual cost is $156,000, the city would save the difference by not having to page the entire department on every call and paying up to 46 fi refighters at a rate of $10 per hour. The fire chief assured that the change would also improve call times with crews manning the station. “That fi rst truck is going to go out faster on every call,” Coleman said. “Everybody’s response times will get faster.” Coleman has presented the plan to the City Council as well as officials in Louisville and Jackson townships, which are covered by the Fire Department. The local governments are mulling over the idea. Down the road, the city will build a station in the Southbridge development in far eastern Shakopee. The city may implement “station paging,” in which crews assigned to a particular station would initially respond rather than the whole department. And local officials are exploring the idea of having fi refighters from the Southbridge area respond in tandem with firefighters from nearby stations in Savage and Prior Lake to improve efficiencies and money for all three local governments. Kudos to the fire chief and his department for looking at ways to not only save money but improve the level of service.

Signs of our times should bother us Some signs are easier to explain than others. I have seen handpainted signs stuck in the ground along country roads that read, “Eggs,” “Cucumbers,” or some that say “Produce.” I hope the last one refers to things grown and raised for sale instead of a command of “get to work.” I was driving through Wisconsin the other day with my friend Mark when we saw a sign that almost made us turn around and stop in to inquire: “Kittens $20.” No need to worry: This is not the second column in a series about kittens — this one is more about economics. Clearly we should have stopped in to satisfy our curiosity about these cats. Instead we chose to

theorize. Having seen numerous signs over the years for “Free Kittens,” we wondered if these kittens were special, even rare for

this part of the country. Maybe it was just the opposite, perhaps the $20 was offered as an incentive to anyone who would take a kitten. Real money could have been made if the litter was large. Whatever their intent, no cash or cats were exchanged. The signs seen in the downtown areas of small towns don’t require much thinking to determine their intent: “For Lease,” “For Sale.” The downtowns, those main streets that were a town’s commerce center, are dying as businesses either dry up or move away. This situation is certainly not new, but it seems to be getting worse.

Racino would be wrong for state I just moved to Shakopee and received a copy of the Shakopee Valley News from the Welcome folks. I was bummed that that fi rst editorial I read was in glowing support of a racino to save the state! Racino? Let’s also open municipal liquor stores at all the busy intersections. Let’s legalize prostitution in the city and run it out of our local Shakopee hotels. While we’re at it, let’s start selling markers and glues for school children to sniff. Just think of all the money we will raise! Any unwholesome means that preys upon the weakness of my neighbors to raise state government money! Sheesh! I hope for a wholesome world! At a minimum I’d pay for each public school to have a large garden and orchard to raise a portion of the food it uses in the cafeteria and the summer crops can go to the CAP Agency. It would provide our children with clean local wholesome food, give them a self-support skill they could use their entire life, and it would provide meaningful employment within the community. But nobody lobbies for stuff like this, it makes sense but not cents. I seriously pray daily for the good sense of decision-makers and influential folks, but it doesn’t seem to do much good. This generation of children will probably be the fi rst generation of Americans that will not have it better off than their parents, thanks to crap like racinos as a means to generate governments funds. Just put your foot on the accelerator and full speed ahead! Drive this state/country into the ground!

Thanks to many for support of Canterbury On behalf of the 1,100-plus em-

ployees of Canterbury Park, I would like to express our sincere gratitude to Sen. Claire Robling and Rep. Mike Beard for their vocal support of Canterbury Park, the Minnesota horse racing industry and our local community. Unfortunately, the recent government shutdown forced Canterbury Park to shut our doors to the public during what would normally be the peak of our live-racing season. While the closure of our business had a broad negative impact, the most unfortunate outcome was being forced to place over 1,000 loyal Canterbury Park employees on a temporary leave of absence. During this very difficult period, Sen. Robling and Rep. Beard offered to host a press conference at Canterbury Park to bring attention to the devastating impact the shutdown was having on our employees, fans, horse industry and the local business community. The event was a tremendous success with over 1,000 people in attendance to show their support for Canterbury Park. Sen. Robling and Rep. Beard, as well as Mayor John Schmitt and Scott County Commissioner Tom Wolf, spoke passionately about the need to end the shutdown and the damage it was unnecessarily causing to so many people. Even before the damage caused by the shutdown, our industry was facing many challenges. That is why I want to also thank all of our Scott County legislators, including Rep. Mark Buesgens, Rep. Kelby Woodard and Sen. Al DeKruif, for their enthusiastic support of racino legislation. They all understand that passing racino legislation is essential to the future of Minnesota’s equine community. Today, more than 40 racetracks throughout North America operate as racinos. Quite simply, it’s become a necessity to compete and survive in the racing business. In addition to securing the future of horse racing in Minnesota, a racino at Canterbury Park would provide substantial

Beard for fighting for Canterbury Park, its employees, Minnesota’s equine community and the city of Shakopee during the shutdown. I also appreciate the support that all of our Scott County legislators have provided over the years for racino legislation and with their continued leadership, I look forward to the day when our vision for a thriving horse-racing industry in Minnesota will become a reality.

Keep jobs here, make our country great again Where has all the common sense gone? Ever since all the new technology and computers have come into play the last 50 years, our jobs in the USA have been less and less. I think you have to look back and see what has happened. The employers get the new technology and replace some workers. Also jobs have gone out of our country for less wages. Where does the money saved go? To the owners, investors and upper management. Since more and more jobs are being replaced by computers and such, the jobs they are replacing can no longer be helping to pay taxes. We wonder why we are so much in debt! We can’t be sending our jobs out of the country and not have those taxes coming in. Now the Republicans think the people who are mostly benefiting from this should not have to pay anymore taxes. Who is going to pay the taxes for the jobs lost? The answer is, whoever is left in the middle class and lower class that has work, because the wealthy people who have benefited don’t want to lose what they have gained. Let’s stop the jobs from going out

of the country right now. Let’s get our jobs back so people can pay the taxes and stop the loopholes for the rich and make this country great again. It is just common sense!

Chairs were stolen after Sunday parade This past Sunday my children and I followed our tradition of watching the annual Derby Days parade. We have not missed a single one in the 11 years we have lived in Shakopee. Our tradition like most people in town has been to set up our chairs and blanket on the way to church. In past years, we have set up canopies as well for shade. This year, I just set up two beach chairs and a blanket at about 10:15 a.m. At 1:15 the kids and I along with some neighbor friends rode our bikes the three-quarters of a mile to the junior high school where our chairs and blanket were waiting. We had a wonderful time watching the parade and the kids each got their bag of candy and we headed home. I thought about trying to bring our chairs but decided I would come back in my car to get them. When I returned in my vehicle to the spot, everything was gone. I asked a city worker taking care of garbage if he saw any chairs and a blanket and he said no. As I drove further down 10th Avenue, there were some groups of chairs still out but ours were gone. Those chairs sat there safely in the morning for three hours but got stolen within 30 minutes after the parade. So, to the person who took our turquoise and red backpack beach chairs, please don’t take other people’s stuff in the future. This sounds familiar but Shakopee is not the place it used to be. It was not wise for me to leave it behind and I know that the right person is just waiting for opportunity but this has always been how we have done it. I’m just grateful we

did not use the canopy and from now on I will use chairs we have found in the garbage so that it won’t be something our family bought brand new (years ago). My warning to all Derby Days parade-goers, don’t leave anything nice unattended.

Emily Matuza Shakopee

Recycling leads to trash in her yard Are we really saving the Earth? Practically EVERY garbage pickup day when I return home from work I am guaranteed to have the neighborhood’s recycled trash all over my front and sometimes my backyard and I’m tired of picking up everyone’s trash! I don’t use the red recycle bins for that very reason, they’re worthless! I’m trying to understand how this is saving the Earth as it allows more trash to litter. Trash is in the yards, in the storm drains, in the fields and so forth. If people are truly dedicated to the recycling mentality, they should at least ensure that their recyclables are contained in such a manner that the wind will not blow the items all over the Earth or they should demand that the city provide a covered container.

Tina Watson Shakopee

Kudos to many for a great Derby Days There are too many volunteers to name who made this Derby Days celebration one of the best. There was something for everyone, from the turtle races to the outstanding parade, to all the kids getting free helium-filled balloons and candy galore. Thank-you for all your efforts.

UPDATE FROM SHAKOPEENEWS.COM

Proposal would name road after fallen soldier The Shakopee City Council put off deciding last week whether to ask Scott County to name the new segment of County Road 21 as “Herrgott Memorial Drive” in honor of U.S. Army Pfc. Jim Herrgott of Shakopee, the first Minnesota soldier to die in the current Iraq conflict. Herrgott, 18, was killed while on duty in Baghdad on July 3, 2003. Prior Lake and Shakopee veterans’ organizations support the designation. If the cities of Prior Lake and Shakopee recommend it, the Scott County Board would be likely to adopt it, according to a city memo. County Road 21 is being extended from County Road 42 in Prior Lake to County Road 18 in Shakopee’s Southbridge area. The item was taken off

U.S. Army Pfc. Jim Herrgott the Aug. 3 agenda because Prior Lake officials wanted to discuss it first with Shakopee. The Shakopee and Prior Lake mayors will meet to talk

about the road naming Friday. It could be added to a meeting agenda later this month or in early September, said Shakopee City Administrator Mark McNeill. The Shakopee School Board declined naming Eagle Creek Elementary School after Herrgott because it felt a different facility would be more appropriate to honor him. In a staff memo, McNeill noted that city councilors should be cognizant of the precedent set in naming of roads. According to a marker at Veterans Memorial Park, 45 Shakopee soldiers have died at war. “Because PFC Herrgott was the first Minnesotan to lose his life in the Iraqi War, a distinction can be made in this case,” McNeill suggested.

Kenneth Paul Realander The proud parents of George and Magdalen (Yetzer) Realander, welcomed into the world a baby boy named, Kenneth Paul Realander on July 7, 1921 in Shakopee. Raised on the family farm, he was the youngest of twelve children. Working on the farm meant long days, a lot of hard work, and yet many fond memories growing up with his siblings. While working on the farm, Ken was drafted and proudly served in the United States Army. He was first in the infantry division, where he was training for the invasion of Japan. Fortunately, Ken never had to use those training skills, for the war was over. He concluded his tour as an electrician. During his two years of service, Ken received the Asiatic Pacific Campaign Medal, Good Conduct Medal and the World War II Victory Medal. Returning from the service, Ken took advantage of the government education program, where he trained to be an auto body man. During all of Ken’s working years, he worked for several body shops in the area. Ken retired on his 62nd birthday, July 7, 1983. He would tell people, “Do not work one more day longer than you have too.” His life was changed forever one evening while attending a dance at the Spring Lake Pavilion. Ken met a young gal named Donna Dorenkamper. They courted for three years and exchanged wedding vows on Sept. 19, 1953 at All Saints Catholic Church in Des Moines, IA. In 1961 they were blessed with a beautiful son, Jeffrey. In 1962, they built a home on Prior Lake, where they enjoyed family activities and created many fond memories together. They also enjoyed weekends at their cabin on Washburn Lake in Cass County. Ken enjoyed fishing and hunting for deer, pheasant, squirrel and moose with his family and friends. A dedicated Catholic, Ken made sure before the fishing line was dropped into the lake, they knew when and where the weekend Mass was going to take place. In his spare time, he enjoyed working around the house as a handyman. Ken would intently buy things broken, just so he could fix it. He also dappled in golf for a while. An avid Minnesota Twins fan, he enjoyed attending the games at the old Metropolitan Stadium, but never was able to make it to Target Field. He was also a life-long member of the Shakopee V.F.W. and a former member of the Prior Lake Sportsman Club. A long time resident of Prior Lake, Ken was 90 years young when he passed away peacefully surrounded by his loving family the late evening of Wednesday, Aug. 3, 2011 at his home. Shortly before Ken passed, he was still cheering on the Minnesota Twins, with Michael Cuddyer hit a grand slam. After he passed they went on to win the game in his honor. Ken is loved and will be deeply missed by wife of almost 58 years, Donna (Dorenkamper); son, Jeffrey (Karen) Realander of California; grandsons, Brandon and Jonathon Realander; granddaughter, Megan Realander; many nieces and nephews and friends. Ken is preceded in death by his parents; George and Magdalen; 11 brothers and sisters. Visitation was Sunday, Aug. 7 from 4-7 pm at BallardSunder Funeral Home, Prior Lake and also one hour prior to the mass at church. Mass of Christian Burial was held Monday, Aug. 8 at 11 a.m. at the Church of St. Michael, Prior Lake, with military honors by the Prior Lake Veterans Honor Guard. Father Tom Sieg officiated. Pallbearers were Brandon Realander, Jonathon Realander, Dennis Gruhlke, Rollyn Dorenkamper, Doug Berens and Steve Pivec. Ken was laid to rest at Fort Snelling National Cemetery in Minneapolis on Tuesday, Aug. 9 at 10:30 a.m., with full military honors provided by the Fort Snelling Volunteer Rifle Squad.

Commerce and Shakopee Parks and Recreation Board, who announced last week. Tabke said he is running because the city needs a long-term vision to maintain its standard of living. “We need a new vision for Shakopee — a vision recognizing our growth in the last decade has turned us into a powerhouse community in the T w i n C it ie s m e t r o. S h a kopee should embrace this role, not run from it,” said Tabke, the vice president of sales for a commercia l John landscaper. Schmitt The contest will be one to watch — with Schmitt’s long civic involvement and Tabke a wellknown emerging leader. The race for two City CounBrad cil seats could Tabke be equally fascinating, with three new faces stepping up for public office. In addition to incumbents Pat Heitzman and Matt Lehman, Shakopee Heritage Society president and past council candidate Jay Whiting is running, as are city Transit Advisory Committee members Ma rk Rei m ler and P rem m Badhwa. Suresh Nair, who has no prior city board experience, also fi led last week.

That makes six candidates for two four-year seats. (The mayoral seat is two years.)

SCHOOL BOARD Two more candidates have entered the race for Shakopee School Board. There are three seats open, but incumbents John Canny and Chuck Berg are not seeking re-election. Incumbent Kathy Busch is undecided. Jeremy Casper fi led for the board late last week. Casper is a senior Web specialist at the University of Minnesota. The 31-year-old has lived in Shakopee four years and is chair of the city’s transit advisory commission. Also fi ling was Angela Tucker. An accounting manager, Tucker, 36, has lived in Shakopee since 2005. She’s served on the recent district facilities task force, the strategic planning task force in 2008 and is the chair of the Special Education Parent Advisory Council. The pair joins Matt McKeand running for the three four-year board seats. McKeand, 37, works in human resources. He’s lived in Shakopee more than a decade and also recently served on the facilities task force. Canny announced at the Shakopee School Board meeting Monday he does not plan to see re-election.

Canny, who was elected in 20 07, said it was a fami ly de ci sion “to grant my wife’s wishes to not r u n.” The local real estate agent, who has three Matt young kids at McKeand home, said his time on the board has been rewarding and he was looking forward to working with new superintendent Rod Thompson. He may consider running again in the future, he said.

COUNCIL CANDIDATES The skinny on the councilor candidates:  Matt Lehman, an auto mechanic, has been on the council since 2002. Lehman, who was toying with a mayoral run, said he’s intent on remaining a councilor because he wants to work in the “trenches” on behalf of residents.  Pat Heitzman, a pest-control specialist, is fi nishing his fi rst term on the City Council. He said he want to stay on the council because of the challenges that lie ahead for the city, primarily economic-related.  Mark Reimler, a local real estate agent and member of the city’s transit advisory commission, is making his fi rst bid for city office. He said he doesn’t have any particular beef with the city and believes it’s important to step up so the same people don’t have to serve time after time.  Premm Badhwa, a measurement technician in the oil industry, sits on the city’s transit commission and is looking to become an even greater part of the community.  Suresh Nair, a software en-

gineer, recently became a U.S. citizen and wants to become more involved in Shakopee.  Jay Whiting, the fi rst candidate to announce, is president of the Shakopee Heritage Society and vice president of Shakopee Derby Days. He was one of the top finishers two years ago. “It’s time for a city councilor who will listen to the citizens and not just listen for his own voice to be heard,” says Whiting on his campaign website. Filings close Tuesday for school and city offices.

time to do it?” asked Councilor Steve Clay. “There’s never a good time to raise taxes,” responded City Administrator Mark McNeill. The city is also looking at ramping up for a third fire station planned in the Southbridge area in 2014. And these are just some of the capital needs, as the Shakopee Community Center looks at replacing its roof next year ($300,000). The city is also leaving room in its 2012 budget for a 1 percent pay increase for all regular employees, with three union contracts set to expire at the end of 2011. The Fire Department is also requesting raises and a move to a daytime duty crew. T he Police Depa r t ment would like permission to finally hire a 47th patrol officer, which has been budgeted since 2 0 07. This would be partially offset by making a full-time community service officer a part-time evidence room technician instead. T he cit y i s a l s o b ei n g smacked with a $20,000 compensation study it says it must undertake to meet state reporting requirements. Staff is recommending the city quit lending video equipment to cable studio users to save money and have its telecommunications coordinator take on growing information technology tasks. As it looks to 2 012, the council will have to consider whether to raise taxes, make

further cuts or save less for parks and building replacement. Taxes would have to rise 4 to 5 percent annually in coming years to maintain current operations and make planned street and facility repairs, according to details of a five-year capital improvement plan. Councilor Matt Lehman reiterated his stance to keep the levy as flat as possible. He believes the city can do a better job of looking at what services it must provide, citing movies at Huber Park as one example of something that could go. “That’s a decision the voters will make,” responded Mayor Schmitt. “If they’re not happy with the way council is doing things, they will make a change.” “Surely, in all levels of government, there is waste to be found,” said Lehman. “We’ve frozen the tax levy for the past three years — that must say something,” Schmitt said. “Would you suggest we take streets off the table?” Lehman said the city might be able to fi nd the money in something it doesn’t need. “Well, you must have something in mind,” the mayor prodded. The city administrator said he will bring back possible reduction items for the council at its Aug. 16 meeting. Shannon Fiecke

When I was a kid growing up in Belle Plaine the town was much smaller than it is today, and yet in the downtown area there were four grocery stores, two hardware stores, two drug stores, a variety store, two gas stations within a few blocks of downtown, a shoe store, a couple clothing stores and several other businesses. Many of them are gone, or have moved out closer to the highway. I don’t know for sure why this is happening. I suspect that it is due to several reasons such as shifting traffic patterns, competition, and changing market conditions, but I keep going to back to how Dad looked at supporting local businesses many years ago. Dad had an office in downtown Belle Plaine and he was disciplined in where he shopped. He shopped in Belle Plaine. When I asked why he didn’t go elsewhere he explained it to me this way: He needed to buy his bread at the local bakery, so the baker would have money to buy a watch from the jeweler next door, so the jeweler could get his car fixed from the garage down the block, so the mechanic could buy his groceries to feed his family and the grocer would be able to keep his store open. He felt a responsibility to these merchants and he didn’t want to break the chain. Well the chain broke and no business or store is immune. Borders, the large book store chain, will shut its doors soon. At one time they were considered the big bully on the block that was responsible for the demise of the local independent bookstore. Now, unable to compete with Amazon and Barnes & Noble, they will close their books. Sure, it’s convenient to point and click and shop at one stop, but what will happen to the local retail merchant? This isn’t about me and my silly little office. This is about saving local businesses or soon we may be left with only the big-box stores and a mouse to shop with. So please shop local when you can, or at least buy a cat to keep the mice in control. Their only $20.

Learning Director Jayne Gibson last week the school would have needed a significant student and staff shift to impact the school’s status. “They don’t start fresh just because they’re in a new set of four walls,” Gibson told the Shakopee School Board Monday. Shakopee did not receive new AYP statuses in 2007 after a major attendance boundary shift either. Thus, Jackson could face corrective action if Pearson students did not meet proficiency targets on the spring 2011 MCA math and reading exams. Schools receiving Title I funds face a rising scale of consequences if they fail to meet AYP in consecutive years. In 2010, Pearson and Sweeney Elementary were the only Shakopee schools to receive Title I dollars. Pearson Elementary met AYP in 2010; however, the state requires schools to meet AYP two years before moving off the list. Jackson P ri ncipa l Doug Schlei f said he doesn’t understand the logic behind the decision, saying it seems like a bigger judgment on his staff than student performance.

SCHOOL TO RESTRUCTURE? The education department’s recommendation also means Sweeney, which has failed to meet AYP four straight years, cannot restart its AYP consequence schedule either. After failing to meet AYP in 2010, Sweeney faced corrective action and adopted a new math curriculum, Gibson said. If Sweeney fails to meet AYP this year, the school could face

Year 2 - School choice/ transfer option

“I don’t want to get anybody panicked thinking we’re going to have oust two-thirds of the staff over there,” Gibson said. “There’s nothing to lead me to believe that will be the case. What we’re going to have to continue doing is looking at the quality of instruction.” The district would have the option of declining Title I dollars if did not want to restructure, Gibson added.

TIMELINE

AYP Consequences Schools receiving Title I funds face a rising scale of consequences for not meeting AYP. Year 1 - Reported publicly

Year 4 - Corrective action Year 5 - Prepare for restructuring Year 6 - Restructuring a mandated restructuring. The two-year restructuring process requires schools to consider alternative governance options. The two most common options are replacing the principal (through reassignment) or replacing the principal and 50 percent of staff to receive a fresh AYP start. Either way, if Sweeney misses AYP, the school must have a plan ready by May 12, 2012, with implementation in summer 2012, Gibson said. For Sweeney staff, the consequences are a hard pill to swallow. The school missed AYP the past two years in just one student population. “The fact that we’re this far down the line and we’ve missed it by just a hair a few years in the row is very frustrating and it’s very punitive,” Orlowsky said. “It’s very difficult for people who work quite hard, and I’m talking for my staff here, to be labeled as failing.” Gibson hopes the district could work with the state education department to find a restructuring alternative, such as altering the daily schedule.

If either Jackson or Sweeney miss AY P, they would also be required to offer school choice. Parents could choose to transfer their students to a different elementary, if another Shakopee school makes AYP. Unfortunately, the district might not know until Sept. 30 whether its schools have met AYP. Any transfers would come mid-school year. With the debut of a new MCA-III math exam in spring 2011, the state had anticipated a later-than-typical release date, Gibson said. But with the state shutdown, MDE officials are pushing it back even further. “That’s where it’s going to get a little hairy,” Gibson said. “We won’t know until the end of September … All of this is going to be up in the air until we know how we performed.” The possibility of overhauling Sweeney staff is just one of a several what-if scenarios due to the flux of NCLB. U.S. Education Secretary A r ne Du ncan recent ly announced states can apply for waivers from the 2014 deadline if they agree to yet-announced education reforms. Minnesota plans to seek a waiver, Gov. Mark Dayton said Monday. “There’s a lot of unknowns at this point,” Gibson said. W h i le e duc ator s pr a i s e NCLB’s focus on math and

reading, they know it’s not perfect, especially considering nearly half of Minnesota schools failed to meet AYP in 2010 and more are expected to do so as the proficiency bar rises to 100 percent. “I would like nothing better than for us to meet AYP, but there’s something inherently flawed about this law if there’s that many people not making it,” Orlowsky said. “We would love to be off the list … and if somebody has the answer on how to do that, we’re absolutely all ears.” Shakopee school Superintendent Rod Thompson praised Orlowsky’s type of attitude Monday. “There are no excuses coming out,” he said. “It’s really positive. This is what we have to do.”

TITLE I SCHOOLS The redrawing of elementary attendance boundaries also means a third Shakopee elementary school will receive Title I dollars in 2011-12. Eagle Creek Elementary joins Sweeney and Jackson as qualifying for the federal dollars aimed at improving math and reading literacy. Schools qualify for Title I when their free and reduced-price lunch population is the same or higher than the district average, Gibson said. As a Title I school, Eagle Creek cou ld now face consequences if it fails to meet AYP. However, consequences begin only after the school has received Title funding for two years. Shakopee High School, Shakopee Junior High, Shakopee Middle School, Sun Path Elementary and Red Oak Elementary do not face consequences for failing to meet AYP because they do not receive Title I dollars.

He said local police are trying to clamp down on the trafficking of heroin before it gets worse. “We are trying to eradicate it from our area,” he said. Scott County Attorney Pat Ciliberto listed a number of reasons for charging someone with the sale of a look-alike substance —including that they can cause overdoses if they contain impurities or mislead users to the potency (and make it difficult for a physician to treat an overdose), promote drug abuse, mislead youth about the side effects of drugs and give drug dealers heftier profits. Pol ic e pu r sue d ch a r ge s against Ruud because “this is about the proliferation of drug trafficking,” said Tate. “There’s a lot of synthetics out there that may not test positive as a controlled substance and have harmful effects,” he added.

Champs win game five Indians advance to Super Regionals this weekend BY TODD ABELN tabeln@swpub.com

T he t wo -ti me defendi ng Class B state champions are still alive. The Shakopee Indians sur-

vived a grueling five-game series against Jordan and advanced to the Super Section portion of the playoffs. Shakopee topped Jordan 6-0 on Friday night in the fi fth and deciding game of their

playoff series to advance and keep their hopes alive for a three-peat. In the past, Shakopee would have advanced directly to the Class B state tournament but the format was changed this year by the Minnesota Baseball Association. Instead of advancing right to the state tournament, the MBA is hosting four super regionals before the state tournament. Shakopee was seeded 13th out of 16 teams and was placed in the Cold Spring Super Section were it will play Sauk Rapids at 6 p.m. Friday night. The other teams in the section are Blaine and Savage. The Indians received the 13th seed because they lost a one-game seeding game to Chaska 6-5 on Sunday.

Catcher Chris Baso drove in two runs in game five against Jordan.

By the time game five rolled along on Friday, Shakopee and Jordan had seen just about enough of each other. Game five would mark the eighth time the two teams would meet in the past 20 days. Jordan forced a game five by beating Shakopee 6-5 last Thursday at the Mini-Met in Jordan. In the deciding game, the Indians Dane Secott was the difference. Secott was brilliant, allowing only four hits over eight innings as Shakopee won 6-0. Secott, who hadn’t pitched

much this season because of some arm trouble, didn’t allow a Jordan runner to get past second base in eight innings. The game was close until Shakopee broke it open in the seventh innings with five runs. Leading 1- 0, Joey Heller made it 2-0 when he doubled home Nate Brown. Jordan walked Aaron Olson and Troy Wasiloski to load the bases. Chris Baso delivered the clutch hit as he singled to left to score Heller and Olson for a 4-0 lead. Wasiloski would score on a wild pitch and Baso on a Brewers error and the Indians led 6-0. Shakopee struck early to make it 1-0 when Heller scored on a Wasiloski double after he walked to start the bottom of the fi rst. The Indians could have ended the series a day earlier but allowed a 4-0 lead to slip away from them. Jordan rallied for six runs in the final four innings, including the game-winner in the bottom of the ninth, to take game four 6-5. Shakopee grabbed a 1-0 lead in the first inning and then pushed it to 4-0 in the second inning. That lead remained until Jordan scored a run in the sixth to cut the margin to 4-1. In the seventh, the Brewers scored four times to grab their fi rst lead of the game, 5-4. In the ninth, Olson tied it up with a solo home run, only to see Jordan win it in the bottom

SEEDING GAME With the win in game five, Shakopee advanced to the Super Sections. Before the Indians could find out when and where they would play, they had to play Chaska to fi nd out which would be the top seed in Section 3B. Chaska rallied for three runs in the bottom of the ninth inning to win 6 -5 and gain the No. 3 seed in the Super

Sections. Shakopee, being the second seed from Section 3B, dropped to the 13th seed. Shakopee grabbed a 3-0 lead in the fourth inning when Olson doubled home two runs and later scored on Baso’s single. In the fifth, Kyle Hoover doubled home Curt Hartiel for a 4-0 lead. I n t he f i f t h, Chaska answered with three runs off of starter Chris Rupert. The score remained 4-3 until Shakopee scored in the ninth inning for a 5-3 lead. Chaska rallied for three runs in the bottom of the ninth to get win and the top seed.

ATHLETIC DIRECTOR

Former hockey coach, now AD at Jordan Jeff Vizenor moves into administrative role BY TODD ABELN tabeln@swpub.com

After 39 years, the Jordan High School Athletic Department is under new direction. Jeff Vizenor was hired as Jordan’s new athletic director after Ken Hanson retired last spring after nearly four decades as the AD. This will be Vizenor’s fi rst job as an athletic director but he comes to Jordan with years of experience as a teacher and coach. “I’m really excited to me here,” Vizenor said. For t he past t wo yea rs, Vizenor was the boys hockey coach at Shakopee High School. He was social studies teacher for the fi rst year at Shakopee then became the dean of students last year. With the move to Jordan High School, Vizenor will be able to combine both teaching and administration. Besides being the school’s athletic director, Vizenor will teach two classes of social studies. “After spending a year as a dean at Shakopee, I really liked the different contact with students,” he said. “I enjoy

Former boys hockey Jeff Vizenor is now the athletic director at Jordan High School. teaching and the opportunity to do both I thought was a really good fit.” Prior to joining Shakopee Public Schools, Vizenor was the women’s hockey coach at Minnesota State University, Mankato for eight years where he compiled a 77-140-23 record. He has jumped into the job feet fi rst and is ready for the

coming challenges. Vizenor has already hired two new varsity coaches, in baseball and girls basketball, and is preparing for fall sports, which begins on Monday. One of his fi rst moves as athletic director was to set up a fall sports meeting for all students and their parents to get ready for the upcoming season. That meeting was held Tuesday night and it gave everybody a chance to meet him as well as get all their paperwork in order and for each individual sport to have a team meeting before the start of the season. “I’ve spent a lot of time preparing for the meeting,” Vizenor said. Not only is he jumping into the job feet fi rst but he is jumping into the community. Vizenor has already moved to Jordan along with his wife Amy and 8-year-old daughter Abby. “It felt good for our family,” he said. “We moved into town because we like the community and the district. I’m really excited to be here.”

CHANGES Because Ken Hanson was as prepared as any athletic director can be Vizenor said that he

hasn’t had to do much as far as schedules are concerned. “Ken was ultra-prepared and ultra-organized and has set me up to succeed,” Vizenor said. One thing that he wanted to do was get the Jordan athletic department website updated. So after working with Cat Pass and the coaches of each sport, the website is up and running with all the information that a parent needs. “We wanted to revamp that and make that a tool for our parents and community,” Vizenor said. Besides preparing for the meeting and revamping the website, Vizenor has met with every varsity coach at Jordan. A ll those meetings have gone well and they have made him even more excited for the job. “The coaches are passionate here for kids and teams,” Vizenor said. “When you have that it makes things a little easier. You can work with people that are passionate about what they do.” Even with that passion, Vizenor said it will take some time to get to know everybody. “It will take a year to learn,” he said. “A year to learn the culture, the community and realize what the community wants and supports and work with them.”

Ms. Schmid provided the Commission a memo and sample report of a SPUC Employee Total Compensation and Benefits Summary – 2010. Discussion centered on the presentation of the information in the sample report. The report is an attempt to show each employee the total value of their individual compensation and benefits package from the Utilities. The total compensation calculations were questioned by Liaison Clay and Commissioner Yost as to not overstate the value of the compensation and benefits. Commissioner consensus was to provide the employees with the reports, as presented, garner comments from employees and revisit the reports next February with the Commission.

MN Life submitted the low bid which will result in an estimated 38% savings in monthly premiums and includes a 3 year guarantee.

What mouthguard is best for your child? A good mouthguard is resilient and tear-resistant. It should fit well, feel comfortable to wear, and should not interfere with breathing or with speech. Your dentist or orthodontist can recommend the style best suited to your child’s needs and level of play. A good fit is critical: Just as kids outgrow their football helmet and hockey skates, facial growth and eruption of teeth can cause a child to “outgrow” last season’s mouthguard. Like other sports gear, mouthguards can wear out, causing them to be less effective. Periodically check the condition and fit of your childs mouthguard and replace it as needed. As a proud sponsor of youth athletics, Cosmopolitan Orthodontics is proud to offer a complimentary custom-made mouthguard for your young athlete. Simply contact our office to schedule a fitting and redeem the certificate below for your child’s mouthguard!

Tired of MOLES? GOPHERS?

Dr. Trudy Bonvino The damage caused by a ball, puck or elbow to the face can be devastating for a child, often resulting in serious injury to and damage to the teeth. A properly fitting mouthguard can buffer a blow that would otherwise cause broken teeth, jaw injuries or cuts to the lips, tongue or face. It can also reduce the incidence and severity of concussions. The following are important tips to help keep your child’s smile safe. Start young: Injuries to the jaws and face occur at all ages and levels of play. A mouthguard is an essential piece of athletic gear that should be part of an athlete’s standard equipment from a young age. Experts recommend mouthguards for all athletes participating in recreational activities that pose a risk of contact to the mouth. Types of mouthguards: Mouthguards generally fall into 3 categories: stock or “ready to wear” mouthguards; formed “boil and bite” mouthguards, and custom made mouthguards. All mouthguards provide varying degrees of protection. They differ primarily in cost, comfort and fit.
