New building, leaders, school year
County agency eyes it for senior complex BY SHANNON FIECKE firstname.lastname@example.org
Shakopee seniors who once played and studied at the corner of Fifth Avenue and Sommerville Street might be able to live there in just a few years. After years of discussion, the Church of St. Mary received word Friday that the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis will allow the parish to sell the former Catholic school site. Scott County Community Development Agency Executive Director Bill Jaffa informed county commissioners of the news during a budget workshop Tuesday. He said the agency has plans to acquire the property next year. St. Mary’s has long considered new uses for the vacant lot, which is on the same city block as the church and rectory. The church has been in talks with the CDA over the last three years about a possible senior

River gauge needed, but who pays? BY KRISTIN HOLTZ email@example.com
County Road 101 commuters know when the river starts to rise, it’s time to pay attention to the numbers. The river hits flood stage at 708 feet in Shakopee. At 710, it closes the downtown river crossing. But those numbers are harder to decipher now that the river gauge was damaged and local leaders are not sure they’re willing to fork over the funds necessary for a new one. City, county, state and federal agencies have been discussing whether the ability to forecast river levels in Shakopee outweighs the $30,000 price tag of installing a new automated gauge and the ongoing maintenance costs that could tally up to $16,000 a year. The National Weather Service manual staff gauge was wiped out last spring by debris and its backup water-weight gauge was removed during construction of the Holmes Street bridge. The weather service office in Chanhassen uses river gauges to forecast flood events based on

About third of students in a new school BY KRISTIN HOLTZ firstname.lastname@example.org
Shakopee school kids will be excitedly (or dejectedly) clambering up the bus steps Tuesday, but for many, it’s a new bus and a new school. Nearly a third of district students will be heading to a new school this fall after the Shakopee School Board redrew elementary attendance boundaries last spring. “Just a lot of new fresh families and
faces,” Sun Path Elementary Principal Patrick Leonard said. Shakopee readjusted its boundaries to accommodate the opening of its newest elementary building, Jackson Elementary. The new building, located near the intersection of 17th Avenue and Marystown Road, will open its doors Tuesday to approximately 700 students. Pearson Elementary staff

Babe’s Place murals among things to see on historic site tour Sept. 10 BY KRISTIN HOLTZ email@example.com
tudy the walls at Babe’s Place in downtown Shakopee and you might be left scratching your head.

Babe’s Place, 124 Holmes St., has been a saloon for most of its history.
Four murals run the length of the southern wall, depicting pastoral settings and a scene right off a pirate ship. What they mean exactly, no one really knows, said Babe’s Place owner Don Matta.

Local artist John Kodylek painted the murals in the 1880s. Story has it, Kodylek was in town painting murals on the walls of St. Mark’s Church and the Opera House when he struck a deal with the owner of Babe’s building to paint the walls for food, beer and boarding. “This is the story I’ve always heard,” said longtime employee Mary Isakson. “I don’t know much about it, but it sounds good.” Located at 124 Holmes St., fact and lore have blurred at the downtown building.

City to Country Tour is Sept. 24 The 13th annual Scott County City to Country Tour will be on Saturday, Sept. 24. The drive-it-yourself tour hosted by the University of Minnesota Extension in Scott County will be open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. The purpose of the event is to demonstrate the importance of agriculture and the rural character of Scott County. Each site is designed to leave an impression on visitors about agriculture and horticulture in Scott County and Minnesota through demonstrations, hands-on activities and educational displays. The 2011 tour will focus on sites in the Elko New Market and southern Prior Lake. The cost of the tour will be $10 per vehicle for the entire day. Vehicle passes will be available at the tour sites. Visitors can pick up a pass at their fi rst stop and then use it as a passport for the remaining sites. For more information call the Scott County Extension office at (952) 492-5410; e-mail Laura Kieser at: torb0022 @ umn.edu or go on Facebook: facebook.com/citytocountrytour. The tour brochure can also be found online on the Scott County website: www. co.scott.mn.us. Here are this year’s stops:
Whispering Oaks Alpacas Whispering Oaks Alpacas is owned by Dale and Tari Maxfield and their family. The Maxfields have been raising alpacas for seven years on their 10-acre farm. Alpacas are fiber-producing animals that are native to South America. They originate from the high Andes regions in Peru, Chili and Bolivia. They part of the camelid family. Thompson’s Hillcrest Orchard Thompson’s Hillcrest Orchard is owned by Gene and Barb Thompson and their family. This is a small but growing apple orchard. The Thompsons wanted to use their small acreage productively, so they planted their fi rst 200 trees in 1996. The orchard has expanded to more than 1,000 trees on approximately five acres. Friedges Dairy Farm Charles and Jeri Friedges milk 45 Jersey cows and farm approximately 320 acres. They raise corn, alfalfa, soybeans and small grains to feed their cows. With an average body weight of 1,000 pounds and producing more than 7 gallons of milk each day, a Jersey cow produces more pounds of milk per pound of body weight than any other breed.

After two years of construction, the County Road 21 extension is nearly complete. The road is expected to open by Sept. 15 at County Road 42, providing a quick path from Prior Lake through Shakopee’s Southbridge area to Highway 169. “The road to this road wasn’t traveled easily,” said Scott County Board Chair Tom Wolf at a ribbon-cutting last Thursday afternoon. “This section represents the fi nal leg of the Highway

169 bypass project that was initiated almost 20 years ago.” The last concrete pour for the main road was fi nished Friday. All that’s left is turf establishment and small curb and gutter work. Crews are still completing the road’s intersection with County Road 18. That has taken
some time because it has to be done under traffic. “It takes a lot of phasing to get all the concrete poured,” said construction manager Len Laxen, explaining it takes three to seven days to cure concrete. A transit Park-and-Ride is planned at the corner of Eagle Creek Boulevard
and the new County Road 21 on land owned by the Shakopee Mdewakanton Dakota Community. The county hopes that project will be complete by late fall but it will not open for a few months. The service will be part of the BlueXpress line to Minneapolis. Shannon Fiecke

Cologne woman is accused of fleeing after hitting cars A man who lives on top of the bluff overlooking Dean’s Lake awoke at 5 a.m. Monday to find a smashed up Toyota Corolla on his property at 5215 Eagle Creek Blvd. It had crashed into two of his parked vehicles, but the driver was nowhere to be seen. By calling a family member who co-owned the Corolla, police located the alleged driver, a 19-year-old Cologne woman who was staying at a residence nearby on Dean’s Lake Road. She showed signs of intoxication and was arrested on suspicion of fourth-degree drunken driving. Officers suspect the woman had been traveling eastbound on Eagle Creek Bou levard when she drifted across the road to the north side and hit a driveway and culvert and began to roll, sideswiping an outbuilding. The Corolla came to rest after colliding with two vehicles parked on the property. The Corolla was “mangled,”
Police are investigating an incident Monday morning in which a car smashed into two vehicles. and appeared to have rolled multiple times, said Shakopee police Capt. Chris Dellwo. “The fact that she was not seriously injured is amazing,” Dellwo said. The woman, who had minor cuts and abrasions, told police the crash occurred on her drive back from Mankato, somewhere between midnight
PUBLIC SAFETY BRIEFS
Just out of jail, area man arrested again A 38-year-old Prior Lake man who just got out of jail for fighting with a Shakopee police officer is behind bars again for a bout he allegedly had outside Shakopee Derby Days. Jaben Wess Christensen faces multiple charges related to an allegedly drunken escapade that occurred during the annual city celebration. Police were called on the evening of Aug. 5 to the report of an intoxicated man on his bike near Huber Park. Bystanders told police Christensen had fallen off his bike into a lane of traffic on County Road 101 and sat there, blocking traffic, yelling at vehicles and displaying his middle fi nger at motorists. Officers say they attempted to apprehend Christensen but he resisted, grazing one officer with his clenched fist, according to the criminal complaint. Before his arrest, Christensen allegedly discarded a small metal pipe, believed to have been used for smoking illegal substances. Christensen is charged with felony fi fth-degree assault for a repeat offense, gross-misdemeanor counts of fourth-degree assault of a police officer and obstructing the legal process, misdemeanor disorderly conduct and petty misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia. Christensen, whose bond was set at $30,000, has a long history of violent behavior. In June, Christensen was sentenced to two months in jail (with work release eligibility) for struggling with a police officer (whom he also threatened to kill) after he got kicked out of Arizona’s restaurant. He also previously served 10 months in jail, starting in 2009, for the minor assault of a probation agent. Shannon Fiecke
Tanning salon manager accused of theft A 27-year-old Marie Elizabeth Thiesen of Shakopee is accused of stealing bank deposits on the last day she worked at Ultra Tan on Vierling Drive. Thiesen was charged in Scott County District Court in July with one gross-misdemeanor count of theft. She has three previous convictions for theft, from Hennepin County in 2006 and 2009 and Scott County in 2008. According to the criminal complaint, the owner of Ultra Tan discovered two deposits missing from the bank receipts in March, totaling $884. Thiesen allegedly was supposed to have taken four days of deposits to the night deposit box at the bank on her last day of employment, but two were missing. The salon owner said it took her until May to reach Thiesen, who told her she had talked to an attorney, knew she would be facing prosecution for the missing money and just wanted to try to pay it back. The owner gave Thiesen three days to return the money, but on the fi nal day Thiesen texted her to say she could not pay it back, according to the criminal complaint Thiesen told detectives she made the deposit that night as a favor to the owner. She denied taking the money. She said she had offered to pay the money back because she had been the manager at the time and felt responsible. Shannon Fiecke
Woman charged with embezzling from ﬁrm An assistant property manager of Winfield Townhomes in Savage is accused of cooking the books so much that an employee believes it will “take years to fi gure out the extent of all the fraudulent activity.” Latisha Alveda Cannon, 32, who moved to an apartment on Taylor Street in Shakopee after resigning from her job at the Savage rental townhome community, was charged in July in Scott County District with three felony counts of theft by swindle. Savage police detectives were asked to investigate the case in late December after the company began looking into discrepancies between the office ledgers and bank deposits. The company’s portfolio manager realized the townhome community was not cash-flowing, even though it had full occupancy, as she prepared for the 2011 budget. She also noticed another oddity — referral bonuses for all new tenants. Employees initially uncovered $18,000 in thefts — missing deposits, bogus checks, forged money orders and theft of money orders, according to the criminal complaint. Cannon, who was hired as an assistant property manager in August 2008, also lived on-site. Cannon allegedly never deposited any of her rent checks, which totaled $4,200, and bank records show she deposited money orders from tenants, totaling $13,420, into her personal account. At the time the criminal complaint was fi led, the company estimated its losses at $33,000. Shannon Fiecke

McCloud may lose law license for 2 years BY SHANNON FIECKE email@example.com
Shakopee criminal defense attorney Sam McCloud will be allowed to practice l aw a g a i n — about six months after his release from prison — if the Minnesot a Supreme Court approves an ag reement McCloud Sam reached McCloud with the Minnesota Office of Lawyers Professional Responsibility. McCloud, 68, is serving an 18-month federal prison sentence for hiding nearly $600,000 in income from the federal government from 2004 to 2006. He agreed to a two-year suspension of his law license after the board fi led a petition Aug. 3 for disciplinary action from the Minnesota Supreme Court, which can range from no suspension to disbarment. The Supreme Court usually adopts the recommendation of the lawyers’ board. The suggested 24-month suspension is effective July 5, the day McCloud was to report to a minimum security penitentiary in Duluth. Although disbarment is the presumptive pena lty when a lawyer is found guilty of a felony, the lawyers’ board recommended suspension based on ot her Supreme Court decisions involving tax evasion. “Felony disbarment cases have involved misconduct directly related to the practice of law or have involved more serious misconduct than tax evasion or fraud,” the office wrote. This is not the fi rst time McCloud has been in trouble. A colorful attorney with a reputation for tackling major legal issues, McCloud was also known for his cowboy attire and living life by his own rules. He pleaded guilty to fleeing a police officer in 1996 and has three fifth-degree assault convictions on his record. McCloud managed to get a drug possession charge against him thrown out by claiming his ex-wife framed him. This is the first suspension of McCloud’s license since he began practicing in 1977, but not the fi rst time he has faced disciplinary action from the lawyers’ board. He has been admonished four times: I In 1986, for failing to advise a client of an impliedconsent hea ri ng a nd for falsely representing to the client that he had personally appeared at that hearing. I In 1993, for contacting a juror, which resulted in a mistrial.

Promising alternatives for area’s flood problem People in the Shakopee area have endured f looding for decades. It wasn’t that long ago when spring brought the closing of the Bloomington Ferry Bridge, an annual event as certain as Christmas. The two-lane bridge and the windy road leading to it were sufficient for a small town like Shakopee and the bridge closing affected a relatively few commuters. There was the downtown bridge and Highway 41 bridge as alternates — unless they flooded. Today, of course, Shakopee and the surrounding area is well-served by the new Bloomington Ferry Bridge, which brought with it a significant increase in population and commuters south of the river. There is still f looding, of course, but the Ferry Bridge is a reliable outlet for commuters. That reliable bridge, we now fi nd, is insufficient to handle the amount of traffic trying to get north and south of the Minnesota River during the flooding season. When bridges in downtown Shakopee, on Highway 41 and near Jordan close, we have a traffic problem. It was exacerbated when Mother Nature played a trick on us and flooded the area last fall. Our headaches grew. And such closures are hurtful on another front: The cost to commuters each day crossings close in Chaska and Shakopee due to flooding is estimated to be $670,000. This is expected to reach $1.7 million by 2030. A solution is a new river bridge between Shakopee and Chaska, which is in the planning stages at the Minnesota Department of Transportation. But there is a problem or two: Construction is likely decades away — if at all. Bridge and road funding at the state level cannot handle maintenance needs let alone construction projects. Thus, a quicker and cheaper solution is needed. MnDOT is looking at what appears to be a pragmatic short-term solution, though not one without myriad issues that must be addressed. The state agency is exploring raising a crossing
in either Chaska or Shakopee by constructing a land bridge and using fi ll to raise the roadbed. There are pluses and minuses with each site. It appears the County Road 101 bridge — the busier of the two — would need to be closed for about a year if it is raised. Conversely, the Highway 41 bridge could remain open during construction work, which has been estimated to be 18 months. It would also be more expensive and challenging to construct a 3,000-foot land bridge on the narrower County Road 101 bridge. On the other hand, MnDOT says there are advantages to the downtown Shakopee option. For one, the bridge’s elevation would allow for it to be raised approximately 2 feet higher than the Highway 41 bridge, so it could withstand higher water levels than the Highway 41 bridge. When both bridges are flooded, the damage to the County Road 101 bridge is more severe, said MnDOT. The bridge is typically the fi rst to close and last to reopen. At the new elevation of 724 feet, the downtown bridge could withstand all 10 floods that triggered closures in the past. If the Highway 41 bridge was elevated to 722.5 feet, it would still flood when water reach levels such as the historic 1965 flood, but it would withstand at least eight other record levels. It’s too close to call on the second highest flood record of 1993. MnDOT continues to study the possibilities. It is also considering modifying Highway 169 for both flooding and routine congestion relief. Options include adding a temporary lane during seasonal flooding from County Road 101 to Pioneer Trail, similar to what was done during flooding this year — which got rave reviews from motorists — or permanently adding a lane from County Road 18 to Pioneer Trail. A fi nal report is expected in October. (View the fi nal concept designs at shakopeenews.com.) The outcome will be used to determine which crossing should be used to apply for state bonding dollars.
Pop made him work with corn I relish corn in all manners and stages, some more than others: popcorn, corn bread, corn flakes, frozen corn, canned corn, corn nuts, Corn King hot dogs, creamed corn, field corn, corn syrup, ethanol and corny jokes. But about this time of year I start to grow tired of corn-onthe-cob. We have a garden at our place. I say we, but mostly it’s my wife Rhonda’s garden, as my only contribution is to till it twice a year. Corn, still on the cob, begins to show up at meal times with regularity for a few weeks every August. It’s hard to complain about food when it is plentiful and prepared for you, but please let me try. My aversion to excessive corn goes back to my childhood; the memories still disrupt my sleep. As part of my training my parents sent me to Montgomery to work the corn pack at the Green Giant factory one summer. Although it only lasted a few weeks, it seemed more like a few years. The shifts lasted 12 hours and then swung around to let the night shift go to the day shift (and vice versa). I would work 18 hours during those swing days. During those long days that turned into night I witnessed people fall asleep while standing up. My social life suffered greatly during those weeks. I’m not sure if it was the hairnet worn throughout the day, the corn that clung to my clothing, or the smell that permeated my pores that made me want
VALLEY (USPS 491-740)
More and more are using our local transit services Are spiking gas prices cramping your wallet? Downtown Minneapolis parking woes getting to you? Traffic congestion on the way to work, school, or appointments enough to drive you mad? Scott County may not have all of the solutions for you, but we and our partners have a few options for you to consider. There are good, reliable and cost-efficient transit alternatives right here in Scott County — whether you need to travel around locally or express your way into downtown Minneapolis, whether you’re crossing several county borders, or just planning a trip to the grocery store. Now in its fourth year of operation, the BlueXpress commuter transit service to and from downtown Minneapolis has proven its value many times over. A partnership between Prior Lake (Laker Lines) and Shakopee (Shakopee Transit), ridership is at an all-time high and has far exceeded expectations. To help facilitate use of the BlueXpress service, Scott County worked with the two cities and other partners to open the Southbridge Crossing Park and Ride Station, and will soon open the Eagle Creek Transit Station (at the intersection of county roads 16 and 21) and the Marschall Road Transit Station (at Highway 169 and Marschall Road in Shakopee). Federal funding was used to construct a “bus only” ramp to
MARSCHALL SCOTT COUNTY COMMISSIONER
expedite access to Highway 169 from the Southbridge station. BlueXpress has been so successful that it has added several new buses to the route, and riders are still interested in additional service. The BlueXpress now serves over 650 riders per day with ridership steadily increasing. One-way fares range from 75 cents to $3, and are determined by the route and time of day. Ten buses run in the morning and afternoon to and from the Southbridge station to downtown Minneapolis. Mid-day returns from downtown Minneapolis to the Burnsville Transit Station and Southbridge Crossing Park and Ride Station are available. People who ride the bus love the convenience, love the economy, love the comfort, love the ease — and love the drivers too. But what about those quick trips? For that, just look to the partnership between Scott and Carver counties — SmartLink
Transit. This unique two-county collaboration, which serves as the region’s Dial-a-Ride as well as ADA and MA transportation service, rapidly became a model for the metropolitan area. SmartLink provides access to public transportation for all county residents. Ridership averages between 700 and 1,000 riders each day. Fares range from $2.25 to $6.75 depending on distance. By pooling and sharing resources (including the fleet and operations), SmartLink has not only served more riders than the previous two services combined, it has kept costs significantly — and consistently — well below the state’s average. Circulator and Diala-Ride services are currently being provided in both Prior Lake and Shakopee through SmartLink. On the subject of costs, I want to note that not one Scott County property tax dollar goes into either BlueXpress or SmartLink services. These services are funded through federal and state programs, grants, regional resources, contracts, and — of course — fares. But our work in transit is hardly done. Residents would benefit from expanded services to broader areas and more communities throughout the county. Of course, this depends on the availability of stable resources, and there never seems to be enough of them to go around. Undaunted, our professional transit providers are planning for the

to stay home and rest in between shifts. The freshly picked corn was delivered by truck day and night from the fields of Scott, Rice and Le Sueur counties. They kept coming and coming. While I sat outside alone during my breaks I remember being impressed and feeling depressed witnessing this long parade of trucks. I had two different jobs at the factory. Both of them had comical “Lucille Ball” qualities. On one I stood next to a fast-moving conveyor belt. In front of me, cobs of corn whizzed by that had been husked by a (husking?) machine. My job was to quickly grab those that had been missed by the machine and put them down a chute, where they presumably would be sent back to be husked (or rehusked?). My secondary task on that con-

Road should not be named after soldier Last week, a letter-writer asked what the harm would be in naming part of County Road 21 after Pfc. James Herrgott. What’s the harm? Everything to us and every family that had a loved one taken from them in war. I also had a 20-year-old brother, Richard L. Cox, killed in the Vietnam War on Memorial Day weekend. It doesn’t matter how long ago it was, it still feels like yesterday. My brother was the fi rst soldier killed in Vietnam from Shakopee. I also had an uncle taken from us in World War II. Why should we single out just one soldier? Honor them all. Richard L. Cox was medic and was killed helping soldiers on the front line. If you name one road after one person, then you better get pre-
pared to do the same for next one. I do agree with the name “Veterans Memorial.” Let’s honor them all, not just one. I travel that area a lot and I don’t want to think of one person getting all the credit. And yes, my children and grandchildren all know about their uncle and now what am I to tell them when they ask me why “Herrgott” and who is he, when I can explain “veterans” better.

housing complex, but the archdiocese had a moratorium on building projects for 18 months as it underwent a strategic planning process. With that ban now lifted and the archdiocese permission, St. Mary’s can now sell the land. The church school, which was built in 1935 and later added onto, was razed in 2005 after the Shakopee Area Catholic School opened across Highway 169. The CDA board has been talking about buying the site at recent meetings. An appraisal and land survey have been completed, but no purchase agreement has been reached. Details still must be hammered out. Nothing has been “inked” yet or presented to the church body or council, noted St. Mary’s parishioner Duane Marschall, who was asked by a priest years ago to look into possible uses for the old school site. Any purchase agreement
Northridge Court in the River City Centre in downtown Shakopee. St. Mary’s has yet to determine how it would dedicate money from the sale. In the past, St. Mary’s discussed putting a fellowship hall into any senior housing complex built on the site, but that’s not currently being considered, church representatives said. The CDA is open to another entity partnering at the site. The agency has asked St. Gertrude’s Health Center in Shakopee if it would be interested in space for a physical rehabilitation service. St. Mary’s has long envisioned building a larger modern church near the Shakopee Area Catholic School. If that happens, it’s unknown what would become of the current church building. Church administrator Steve Hofer said the parish hasn’t discussed the future of the building yet. “In this book, only a few chapters have been written,” said Marschall.

The CDA would like to construct a 50-unit senior housing building next to the church in 2013, after a complex proposed in Jordan is built, he said.

25 years ago… From the Shakopee Valley News, 1986 Bar Owner Likes His Work – Says He’ll Never Retire – He’s 76 years old, well beyond the usual retirement age, but Arnie Theis is anything but ready to call it quits. Theis has been the owner of Arnie’s Friendly Folks Club since 1938. Wearing his familiar tennis shoes and Red Schmidt suspenders, Theis said he will own his bar “’til I drop.” He never married because “no one asked me,” he said with a laugh. “From what I see now, I’m kinda glad I ain’t… they don’t last.” “Back in the 1930s,” he said, “there were 32 places in town that had slot machines. That was when there were only about 4000 people here. Shakopee was a big gambling town. It was all outside business. That’s what made the town.” “Golden Boys” perform at Valleyfair – Frankie Avalon, Fabian and Bobby Rydell, “The Golden Boys of Bandstand” will be appearing at Valleyfair. The show will spotlight each of the three vocalists singing such all time
favorites as “Venus,” “We Got Love,” “Turn Me Loose” and “Tiger.” The trio will perform tunes from American Bandstand, the TV show that made South Philadelphia famous.

LaVonne Rachel Carlson
Ann S. Hohler
On June 27, 1930, at the family farm in Ambrose, ND, Otto Sr. and Edna (Opperude) Johnson on announced the birth of twins, LaVonne Rachel and LaVern Richard. LaVonne was the second of eleven children, and they grew up during the depression. LaVonne attended school through the eighth grade and left home at the age of 15 to work in a café in Thief River Falls. While working at the café, LaVonne was introduced to Bennie Carlson by his nephew, Jerry Warden. The two couples, Bennie and LaVonne and Jerry and Linda were married in a double ceremony, June 12, 1948. While living in Minneapolis, LaVonne and Bennie welcomed two baby girls to their family, Cheryl and Gayle. The family, in 1951, moved to Prior Lake and later welcomed Becky, Renee, and much later – Cory. Bennie passed away Dec. 7, 1985. Although the girls were grown, Cory was only ten, and these difficult times created a special bond between LaVonne and Cory. Throughout LaVonne’s entire life, she was an excellent baker and cook, with emphasis on cookies, lefse, beans and buns. Many hours were spent baking bread and cookies with and for the grandchildren. LaVonne was also an avid gardener and enjoyed canning the fruits of her labor. Always prepared, she bought a cookie freezer just so she could make and freeze treats for visitors that stopped by. In her spare time, LaVonne enjoyed dancing with her husband in Milaca at Ann Lake, while visiting Bennie’s side of the family. She was a member of the V.F.W. Ladies Auxiliary. LaVonne also treasured the times spent with her daughters shopping. Meticulous about her home, LaVonne’s home was always open to family. Over the years she was a caregiver to her parents and provided a welcoming home to siblings moving into the area. In later years, the roles were reversed, when she became unable to move about freely, LaVonne’s brothers and their wives were always there to lend a helping hand. LaVonne was a good hearted, generous, fun-loving and devoted wife, mother, grandmother and sister.

point-specific river-level observations. But even before the Shakopee gauge was damaged, the weather service was relying on infrequent readings from the manual gauge and struggling to model Minnesota River levels without real-time observations, according to weather service hydrologist Diane Cooper. Forecasting water levels requires accurate data since rivers change from f lood to f lood depending on season, vegetation, erosion and ice, she said. In spring, the water moves quickly, chewing away at the bottom of the river bed so that it can hold more water. Once it slows down, sediment and debris starts to settle, refi lling the river bottom and reducing its capacity. For example, the September 2010 flood had distinct differences than spring f looding because the grasses and leaves slowed down the water flow. River gauges are helpful in planning for future f lood events and keeping the public informed, said Scott County Emergency Management Director Chris Weldon. The gauge not only tracks where the water is currently, but models it days ahead. “Once we know that the water gets to a certain level a road is going to close, we can anticipate that and start looking at what need s to be done to close the road,” Weldon said. During the past two floods, county and city officials have relied on a makeshift ruler installed by the Minnesota Department of Transportation just north of the County Road 101 bridge. However, the pole is only usable once the river has risen high enough for backwater, Weldon said. “Anybody can stick a stick in the ground and tell us how high the river is,” said Carver County Emergency Management Director Ken Carlson. “Where the river level is headed, that’s the big thing for us.” Ca r ver Cou nt y of f icia ls would like to see Shakopee keep its gauge because of its wealth of historical data, Carlson said. The close proximity to County Road 101, a major river crossing between Scott and Carver counties, also makes it ideal, he said. If Shakopee were to pass on a gauge, the city of Chaska may have some interest in its own automated gauge. Chaska currently utilizes modeling from the Jordan gauge upstream and its own wire-weight manual gauge, said Chaska Public Works Director Tim Wiebe. “We can get a pretty good idea of what’s coming,” said Wiebe, who adds a couple of days and a couple of feet difference to the Jordan readings to forecast the impact on Chaska. Even if Chaska were to install a gauge on Highway 41, it would be years before the new site could build up the historical data of Shakopee gauges, Carlson said. “We really would like to see the Shakopee site continue,” he

The Minnesota Department of Transportation installed a pole to measure how high the Minnesota River rose last spring near the Raguet State Wildlife Management Area sign north of the County Road 101 bridge. Right now it’s the only tool local officials have for measuring the river depth.
The main crux to installing a new gauge is who pays for it. The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) is the federal agency responsible for operating and maintaining river gauges across the county. While the agency receives some federal funding, it relies heavily on partnerships between interested local and state parties to cover the full cost of installation, Cooper said. Local partners, such as the city, county and MnDOT, could apply for a U.S. Homeland and Security hazardous mitigation grant, Weldon said. The grant could cover up to 75 percent of the gauge, while local partners chip in the rest. The grant, however, does not cover annual operations and maintenance, which Cooper estimates between $12,000 and $16,000 a year. Operations and maintenance cover not only general upkeep of the gauge but also routine and special measurements to identify the river’s flow, Cooper said. These measurements are used to develop rating curves that translate a river’s flow into flood stage values. The fund also covers the hourly transfer of stage data to the weather ser vice via satellite, as well as analyzing and archiving those numbers for public use, according to Cooper. The USGS has said it would fund up to 40 percent of annual maintenance costs, Weldon said. The city, county, MnDOT and other interested local parties would be responsible for the rest. While recent f lood events highlight the importance of a gauge, it’s really more of a want
than a need, Shakopee Police Chief Jeff Tate said. The city is facing tight budgets and does not have funding set aside to cover the expense of maintaining a river gauge, he said. Having seen his depar tment’s office staff shrink and hoping to add a 47th officer in next year’s budget, Tate said if given a choice between an automated gauge and the officer, he prefers the latter. “We just simply don’t have the resources we can devote to [a new gauge] right now,” Tate said. “Maybe there’s a creative solution, we just haven’t figured it out yet.” Chaska and Carver County officials don’t want the Shakopee gauge abandoned, but they’re not necessarily sure they can commit to fi nancially supporting it either. If local partners pass on an automated gauge, the weather service will discontinue specific river level forecasts and probabilistic outlooks for the Minnesota River in Shakopee, Cooper said. It would continue to issue general river f lood information, but it would not replace or fi x the manual staff gauge. Shakopee wou ld have to rely on projections from the automated Jordan and Savage gauges. The real question for local partners comes down to whether the benefits of river forecasting outweigh the costs, Cooper said. While she’d like to see a new gauge in Shakopee, she knows it’s the local communities’ decision and sometimes “you have to say no to good things even though it’s a desirable thing.” “Deep down should Shakopee have a gauge? Yes, especially on a major crossing like this,” Tate said. “But right now the costs are at a point where it’s a hard pill to swallow.”

veyor line was to grab gross or damaged cobs and dispose of them. There was no time for indecision or contemplating the fate of a marginal cob. Some slipped through, but when I got behind I resisted the temptation to catch up by stuffi ng the cobs in my shirt or my mouth. The second job I had at the factory was to get my hands smashed by frozen corn cobs. I stood on a ladder above a large container and spread frozen cobs evenly in the container as they exited a chute. The idea was to get as many cobs into a container as possible, but I found the consequences of completing the task contrary to its intended purpose: the frozen cobs flew out of the chute with such velocity and numbers that it was impossible to make any progress without having your hands pummeled with

I will no longer eat corn right off the cob; I require it to be cut off. I still have all my teeth so that’s not the reason, nor am I so highly cultured that the very idea of eating right from the cob is beneath me. I’ve just never been a fan of having corn stuck between my teeth, plus with a moustache, I have to contend with the smell of butter beneath my nose unless I thoroughly scrub up after eating. But soon I will no longer have corn coming out of my ears. Fall will come and winter will follow. I will spend my nights reading, writing, watching movies and eating popcorn.

“This year it’s even more important we’re communicating with families and students,” Schleif said.
Superintendent Rod Thompson joined the district Aug. 1, taking over for retiring Jon McBroom. Thompson joins the district from St. Anthony-New Brighton Public Schools where he was superintendent the past five years. Thompson has kept busy this week meeting Shakopee’s returning staff. “I’ve been very impressed with the quality and dedication of all of our Shakopee staff,” he said. Joining Thompson in the district is Shakopee High School Principal Kim Swift. Swift joins the district after 33 years as a teacher, counselor and principal with Dubuque (Iowa) Public Schools. She replaces longtime principal Jim Murphy, who resigned last fall. Former Shakopee Junior High Dean of Students Robbi Mondati is stepping into the assistant principal position at the high school, formerly held by Barb McNulty, who took the high school principal job in Jordan. Mondati had been dean at the junior high for two years. “I’m thrilled to have a new opportunity,” she said. “I’m excited to continue to work with the same students I’ve seen for years. The poor sophomores can’t get rid of me. They’ve had me since seventh grade.” Replacing Mondati at the junior high is Stuart Lang, who joined the district from South St. Paul. Across the district, Shakopee has nearly 40 new full-time teachers and a handful of new paraprofessionals. Most of those new positions come at the secondary level as larger class sizes beginning moving up. Eight of the new positions are due to enrollment growth, according to Human Resources Manager Shaleen Roth.
While Jackson steals the headlines as this year’s major build, the Shakopee Middle School also underwent a big improvement behind the scenes. T he district invested $ 2 million into a renovation of their third-f loor and office area heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems. The project includes two new HVAC units and penthouse, separate

Former legislator to speak about depression John Hottinger reached the peak of his political career in 2003 when he was appointed as the majority leader of the Minnesota state Legislature. At the same time, he was enduring a very difficult personal battle with clinical depression. Eventually he reached a breaking point. “I was standing on a bridge ready to jump but I had some friends who were good enough to get me over to Regions Hospital,” he explains. “After spending three days as an inpatient I went through eight months of three-times-a-weekcare as an outpatient. I got great care and it turned my life around.” Hottinger will share his personal story at 7 p.m. Monday, Sept. 12 at St. John the Baptist Catholic Church, 4625 125th St. W., Savage in a talk titled “Depression: An Illness, Not a Character Defect.” The presentation is part of the educational speaker series sponsored by the Depression Support Coalition, whose mission is to inform, educate, support and cultivate a community of spiritual hope for those affected by depression – as well as their families.

Classic Friday nights
ou have two Fridays left — Sept. 9 and Sept. 23 — to make new friends and catch the hot rods and classic cars at the Minnesota Valley Rally. The show runs 6 to 10 p.m. in downtown Shakopee.

Owner Steve Dean of Minnetonka purchased this restored 1950 Chevrolet Bel Air coupe, which his friends have nicknamed Lipstick. “I didn’t pick the color. It looked more cherry red in the florescent lighting,” he said. The fuchsia tone, which changes with how the light strikes the car, is a hit with women. “I have a pretty-girl rule, if they like my car, I let them sit in it.”

Four-year-old Brody Hahn and his sisters Layla, 7, and Shelby, 9, of Shakopee were mesmerized during their first time to the Minnesota Valley Rally.
Edward Kaiser of Shakopee was on his way up north to look at hunting land when he came across this 1978 Dodge Little Red Express. He purchased the Dodge instead, at the urging of his wife. Kaiser has been restoring the truck (his first classic) ever since. “I do a little more every year — whatever I can afford,” he said.
This 1965 Volvo 544 is outfitted with a matching antique doll and picnic set. “It’s all about bringing back the memories,” said owner Randy Scott of Carver. Below — “It’s much more of a social thing than a car show for us,” says Colleen Hardin of Orono (left) who met her friends Sharon Schneider of Eden Prairie and Connie Dean of Minnetonka (right) while attending shows with her husband. The couples went to eight shows in six days last week.
“This car is capable of 200 miles per hour,” said Dick Stokvis of St. Paul, who built this 1960 Shelby Daytonna coupe replica using a kit and a 1969 Ford engine. “You get the feel of the original, but it’s new.”

Check out the murals at Babe’s Place and other sites during the Shakopee Heritage Society’s Historic Site Tour. The downtown bar is one of nine historic sites featured on the biennial tour, which runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 10. Tickets are $10 each and available at the Scott County Historical Society, 235 Fuller St. S., Shakopee. The original Babe’s building, then a saloon owned by German immigrant William Heidenreich, was destroyed in an 1879 fire. Heidenreich rebuilt at the same spot, and a picture of his building in Julius Coller’s “The Shakopee Story” resembles the current home of Babe’s. Anecdotal evidence suggests the building housed Main Meat Market around the turn of the 19th century. However, it’s believed to have resorted back to a saloon, possibly owned by Hilarius Schlink or John C. Abeln, shortly afterward. Little is known about the building during Prohibition, though Isakson has heard stories of the basement being used as a Speakeasy. “They did some illegal stuff down there,” Isakson said. In December 1936, Hub Paron relocated his beer emporium to 124 Holmes St. Following his death, bartender Clair Sheffer purchased the business, running it as Clair’s until the 1980s. Darlene Matta bought the bar in the mid1990s. Isakson came to work at Babe’s shortly after Darlene purchased the bar. Darlene named the establishment after her mother, Elizabeth “Babe” Vig. About five years ago, Darlene restored the outside of the building, which has been painted a tan/peach color, Isakson said. Crews sandblasted the brick and “brought it back to its former glory on the outside,” she recalled. Darlene died last summer and Don took over ownership of Babe’s Place. He has plans for a remodel and hopes to have Kodylek’s paintings

way into private kitchens across the country. They are available as a wall mount or deck mount. Find a style that matches your appliances and other faucets in the room.
One of today’s most popular trends in new and remodeled kitchens is the use of multiple kitchen faucets, which add extra functionality to the room. “Pot ﬁllers, island faucets and even bar or convenience faucets all help to maximize the room,” says Kevin McJoynt of Danze, a manufacturer of decorative plumbing faucets and ﬁ xtures. “But convenience and functionality aren’t the only two items homeowners are looking at while upgrading their kitchens. Ambiance, decor and style are also top priorities.” If you’re reconsidering your kitchen’s function and style, consider adding these options into your remodeling plan:
Pot ﬁllers These faucets are located near your stove to provide you with a convenient way to ﬁll a pot without having to carry it to the nearest sink. This saves plenty of back-breaking work and minimizes the likelihood of spills. Pot ﬁllers are commonly found in the restaurant industry and have quickly made their
Usually acting as second sinks, island faucets help avoid congestion at the main sink and are a great way to increase a kitchen’s workﬂow. Because island sinks are frequently used for preparation, they are sometimes referred to as prep sinks. Homeowners commonly use this workspace for cutting vegetables, chilling wine or washing hands prior to a meal. Choose a faucet style and ﬁnish that complements the room’s decor and adds an eye-catching decorative piece to an otherwise “ho-hum” island. Danze has several pull-down or pull-out faucets with three functions—spray, stream and pause—giving your island workspace additional functionality.
Bar faucets Also referred to as a convenience sink or a beverage center, this area is typically used for entertaining purposes and is often located on a secondary counter
space in the kitchen or adjacent room. Danze offers a variety of bar faucets, including high-arc options, small-scale faucets and several others. Choose a style that will make this space “enter-
taining.” Visit Danze.com for more kitchen solutions. Source: ARA Content

Sabers start season as fourth-ranked team Senior-laden Shakopee looks for seventh-straight conference crown BY TODD ABELN email@example.com
For the past six years, Shakopee has been one of the best volleyball programs in the state. That trend isn’t expected to stop anytime soon, especially not this year. The Sabers return at least five starters and three other players that played significant minutes for last year’s team that went undefeated in the Missota Conference. Not only do the Sabers return experience but that experience comes in the form of some very talented players. With that talent and experience returning, Shakopee will not be under the radar this fall in volleyball. In the first preseason poll of the season, Shakopee was ranked fourth in the state in the coaches poll. “I look at that as more of honor for our program,” head coach Matt Busch said. “We don’t pay much attention to that, though.” Even with that high ranking, Shakopee will have its work cut out for it this season. They have one of the hardest schedules in the state which includes matches against highly ranked teams like Eden Prairie, Wayzata, Belle Plaine, and Lakeville North. Not to mention they will participate in the three tournaments that will be littered with the best teams in the state.
ABOVE ALL TEAM That’s the team motto for this year and Busch hopes it can carry them back to the state tournament, which they missed last year for the fi rst time in four years. “The girls and coaches felt like i f ever y thing is team fi rst then we will have a very successful year,” Busch said. “The attitude has been fantastic.” Shakopee can boost one of the strongest hitting teams in the state with at least six players that can put the ball on the ground in a hurry. The team’s top hitter is middle blocker Claire Sames, who is a three-year starter and
consistent threat to have a big game. She suffered through an ankle injury last year but comes back at full strength this fall. “She’s a go-to player,” Busch said. “We’d be foolish not to get the ball to her.” Other hitters that will be dangerous this year are seniors Kari Monnens, Rachel Rhinesmith, Alyssa Blees, juniors Carlee Hoppe and Taylor Koehn. A couple newcomers, Mackenzie Pieper and Kaylee Lemke, should provide depth to the team. One position that won’t have any experience at it is the setter spot, which will be handed to Maggie Holcombe to start the season. “We feel like we aren’t going to take a step back at all at the spot,” Busch said. With all the firepower returning, Busch has concentrated the early season practices on defense because he didn’t feel they were very good at it at the end of last season. “We need to pick up our allaround defense,” Busch said. They hope to improve their defense by have senior Alex Berger as the full-time libero. “She is going to turn heads,” Busch said. “People are going to notice that she doesn’t let the ball hit the floor.” Senior defensive specialist Hanna Leadstrom will also help the team defense. “We’ve already noticed a big difference in our defense,” Busch said. “We are a defensive team; we aren’t letting any balls hit the ground.”

three straight years and has the two-time defending state champion, the Sabers aren’t feeling any pressure. “We are just going to run as fast as we can and see where we end up,” head coach Mark Neu said. “Just trying to do our best.” Their best should be pretty good bec ause t hey ret u r n four runners that have been on all three of those state meets, including junior Maria Hauger. Hauger, the two-time defending state champion, is the overwhelming favorite to make it three in a row. “She’s focused and has one thing on her mind and that’s to put time between her and No. 2,” Neu said. “She’s a one-in-amillion runner.” Hauger struggled during the spring track season but had a strong summer by winning a national meet in Kansas. Neu said that Hauger is key to the team’s success but the other runners on the team are equally important. Neu called senior Anna Neu and junior Winona Rachel and Alli Lynch “the meat of the team.” “They don’t get the credit they deserve but they just go out and do their job,” Neu said. “They are the workhorses. I can’t say enough about those girls. Without them we would have a couple fast runners and nothing else.” That gives the Sabers four strong runners that should help them compete in both the

Getting to state won’t be easy because the section got a little bit tougher with the addition of Hutchinson and Delano. Those two have been Class 2A powers before getting moved up to Class 3A this season.

He also said Sam Hall and Josh Lemke should run for the varsity this season. “ T he t hi ng I’m excited about is that we have our one through seven runners that when they fi nish won’t be that far from one another,” Sheeley said. “A lot of races can be won that way.”

Late goal prevents win for Sabers Young team shocked in opener BY TODD ABELN firstname.lastname@example.org
Even though his team didn’t get a win in their first two games, Shakopee boys soccer coach Jon Poppen saw improvement from game to game. The Sabers opened the season with a 2-0 loss to Holy Family but bounced back to get a 1-1 tie against Burnsville to open the season 0-1-1. Holy Family took advantage of the Sabers’ varsity inexperience and shocked the Sabers last Thursday at home, 2-0. Against Burnsville, it appeared the Sabers were going to win 1-0 but the Blaze scored with 17 seconds left in regulation to force overtime and gain the 1-1 tie. “The fi rst game was a little disappointing,” Poppen said. “The mental toughness piece we struggled with. You could tell that we had sophomores and juniors in their first goaround.” I n t he Bu r nsvi l le game,

Mario Pena put the Sabers up 1-0 with a goal in the 35th minute. That lead held up until the Blaze scored with just seconds left and forced overtime. In the second half, Burnsville kept the pressure on and battered goalie Lukas Kinsel with shot after shot. “Burnsville put us under pressure for the last 20 minutes and we weren’t able to relief that stress,” Poppen said. Sha kop ee went i nto t he 10-minute overtime with no momentum but kept the game tied and walked away without losing. “In the overtime, we were the better side,” Poppen said. “The team really grew up in the second match.”

The Shakopee Chiefs won the Minnesota Senior Baseball Association Class AA state title over the weekend. The Chiefs defeated Slayton 10-1 on Saturday night at Jordan’s Mini-Met to claim the state title. Shakopee reached the title game by defeating St. Peter 1-0 on Friday in Belle Plaine. The state tournament runs over two weekends and the Chiefs won both games last weekend to reach the semifinals. They opened the state tournament with a 14-0 win against St. Louis Park and then edged Belle Plaine 5-4. This is the first time that Shakopee has won the Class 2A state title. It won the Class A state title in 2002, 2001, 1998 and 1996. Shakopee finished as Class 2A runners-up in 1995. The Chiefs finished the regular season with a 12-4 record.

The Shakopee Sabers volleyball team is ranked fourth in the Class 3A preseason poll
BY TODD ABELN email@example.com
Before their season started, Shakopee girls soccer coach Mike Ceola was concerned about how the team’s defense was going to play. His concern came to life on Saturday a fternoon in Burnsville when the Sabers allowed two soft goals to the No. 7-ranked Blaze and ended up losing 2-0. The two goals came just 15 minutes into the game and allowed Burnsville to cruise to victory. Despite giving up the two go a l s, over a l l C e ol a wa s pleased with his team. “We played a very strong game,” he said. “We strung numerous passes together and I really felt we had the better play for most of the game. However, we had sev-
eral defensive breakdowns that led to the two very weak goals.” After it gave up the two goals, Shakopee played much better in the back and kept the game close. “The defense played much stronger in the second half,” Ceola said. “I do feel we let one slip through our hands.”
GOOD START Shakopee started the season with a big 3-1 win against Holy Family last Thursday night at home. Samantha Verebeke opened the scoring 10 minutes into the game when she took a pass from Roxanne Roemer at the top of the box and put it past the Holy Family goalie. The Fire tied it up seven minutes later and the game stayed at 1-1 until halftime. In the second half, Verebeke scored again and then Gracie Vaughan put the game away with a goal late in the game. “This was a quality win,” Ceola said.

With near perfect weather, excellent car counts and exciting racing action in every division Raceway Park gave its fans their moneys worth this past week-end at the famed quarter-mile asphalt oval in Shakopee. On Friday night, the Bandoleros and Legends returned with the best field of cars they’ve had all season. Eleven Prestige Plumbing Bandoleros took the green for the 10-lap feature but a fi rst lap melee took out four cars. One of the cars was driven by 2011 points leader James Wenzel but his crew was able to make some quick repairs and return to action. On the restart Jesse Mahoney grabbed the lead with Grant Brown in hot pursuit. She led until lap six when Grant passed her for the lead and the win just ahead of James who thrilled the crowd with his second place fi nish. Grant won his heat for a clean sweep much to the delight of his family and other fans in the stands. Shakopee’s Derek Lemke put a brand new Great Northern Legends/Cheerios Legend car on the track Sunday unsure of how the car would do. He had nothing to worr y about as he t u r ned i n a sterling performance by winning his heat and the 20-lap feature despite some stiff competition from Great Northern Legends Distributor T i m Bro ck hou se a nd 2010 Legends Champ Bryan Keske. His father Jon Lemke a former track champion at Raceway was all smiles in the pits afterwords. The other heat winner was that fast 14yea- old Kyle Hansen. In other action on Friday night Brian Adams bested a 17-car Mini Stock field, Mark Bronstad and best pal Todd Wilson were the Top Dogs in the Figure 8’s; multiple division racer Todd Tacheny sliced and diced his way to a Flag pole race win; and Blake Dorweiler bumped and banged his way to victory in the Front Wheel Flyer fi nale. With 96 race cars in the si x NASCA R W helen A l lAmerican divisions on hand
Sunday night, Raceway Park fans knew they were going to see some serious racing as drivers vied for points in the closing weeks of the season. One racer who wasn’t as concerned about point’s was 16-year Raceway Park veteran Kenny Schug. Schug’s had a tough year but Sunday night he did something he had never done before - win a Impact Printing Bomber division feature proving once again that persistence and pluck pay off. The Schug Clan’s fi rst ever visit to Victory Lane was a joyous one. It was all Todd’s of the Wilson and Tacheny variety in the evening’s Figure 8 action as each tooled their way to triumphs continuing their winning ways from Friday night. Sh a kop e e’s Ad a m Wie busch made it two in a row in the Ventaire Hobby Stocks but not with out some pressure from 2010 Track Champ Brent Kane. Kane, showing his usual outside groove prowess, worked his way from seventh to second by lap 2 0. With Wiebusch in the lead the pair raced side-by-side for the next five laps with the outcome in doubt up to the end when it was Wiebusch by a bumper at the fi nish line. All season long Adam Royle and Chad Walen have battled for Super Late Model bragging rights with one or the other winning every feature of the season but one. Royle set the fast time on Sunday night and then found himself starting on the pole with Chad back in the seven spot. Despite some early race distractions Royle and Walen kept their eyes on the prize by running fi rst and second for the duration. The point’s battle remains close with just three SLM events remaining. Racing resumes on Labor Day Weekend with race programs scheduled on Sunday Night (6 p.m. start) and Labor Day (3 p.m. start).

A rose in need of a name Arboretum is asking public to name flower BY MOLLEE FRANCISCO email@example.com
estled among the University of Minnesota Landscape Arboretum’s 400 different varieties of garden and shrub roses is one rose in need of a name. The public is now being invited to submit their ideas for a name for Rosa 66, a pink rose with a scalloped, double-petal bloom and a light fragrance.
The rose was developed through the University’s Woody Landscape Plant Breeding and Genetics program at the Horticultural Research Center. The landscape plant breeding program was born out of the University’s highly successful fruit breeding program which has produced everything from the classic Haralson apple and the wildly popular Honeycrisp apple to more than 100 varieties of apricots, cherries, strawberries, blueberries and grapes. Rosa 66 is one of 46 landscape plants released through the landscape plant breeding program since its inception in 1954. Other plants include shade trees, flowering trees, shrubs and 13 different kind of azaleas – all designed to withstand Minnesota’s unique and harsh climate. The last rose plants the University introduced to the public was the Sven, Ole and Lena rose bushes in 2008.
To submit your ideas for Rosa 66’s new name, visit www.arboretum.umn.edu/ nametherose
“It’s quite a process,” said Barb DeGroot, public relations specialist for the Arboretum. “There are quite a few factors to consider. They have to be able to survive our winters and they have to be distinctive.” Though less than 100 plants exist today, Rosa 66 is expected to make its debut in the floral marketplace next year. It is a shrub rose resistant to blackspot disease. Rosa 66 blooms intermittently throughout the summer. The rose plant is now on display at the Arboretum’s Cloister Garden. Entries for its name can be submitted online or at the Arboretum’s Oswald Visitor Center now through Sept. 30. “We’ve already received 700 entries,” said DeGroot. “And we’ve hardly even publicized it.” The Horticultural Research Center has invited the public to name its plants in the past. “People love it,” said DeGroot. In the fall of 2007, more than 7,000 entries were received from around the world when apple MN447 was in need of a name. “Frostbite” was declared the winner the following spring. Trees bearing Frostbite apples are scheduled to enter the marketplace in 2014.
Rosa 66 is the latest product from the University of Minnesota’s breeding program to be opened to the public for naming.
Getting itch to garden A ‘simple’ gardening project never is
began a column in 1995: “I’ve got poison ivy. Again.” Well, it’s 16 years later and I have poison ivy. Again. I know what you’re thinking – “Wow, I must really be clever to have avoided poison ivy all these years.” Or maybe that’s not what you’re thinking. Yes, I know very well how to avoid poison ivy, but I thought I was being careful. It was right there amongst the Virginia Creeper vine, wild raspberry and assorted annual weeds that I was trying to remove to make a proper planting bed in the shade for hostas. My practice on woody plants is to cut the stems off at ground level and apply a drop or two of woody brush killer to the stem so the woody plant won’t resprout. Lately I’ve been giving the same treatment to poison ivy. Wearing gloves, I carefully snip the viney stems and apply a few drops of chemical. Six days after I was being very careful, my inside forearms broke out in poison ivy blisters. A few of you may recall my poison ivy remedy from that 1995 column – hold the blistered body part under very hot water and the itch will go away for a couple of hours. That remedy still works, but you’d think I could have avoided the experience altogether. Any gardener who tries to clear woody plants out of a wooded space can attest to what a time-consuming and labor-intensive job it is. The top few inches of soil are a tangle of roots just waiting for a combination of sunlight and moisture to send forth vigorous new growth. Often the cleared space has to be patrolled for years for – at least in my yard – the reappearance of plum trees, gray dogwood, wild raspberries, poison ivy, Virginia Creeper, buckthorn and a host of other uninvited plants. It’s quite rewarding, however, to clear a wooded space and watch as spreading
