COOL JOBS: JOHN BEHR, KING HENRY AT MINNESOTA RENAISSANCE FESTIVAL
Bow to the
Council at odds on how to fund road overlays, projects in future

Editor’s note: This is an occasional series focusing on local residents’ interesting, unusual or even oddball occupations. ho says a lowly street hawker can’t grow up to be king? John Behr has been a performer at the Minnesota Renaissance Festival for 30 years — most of them wooing young women from his royal state. The hawker-turned-princeand-now-king is one of the only Renaissance Festival performers in the nation to secede to the throne, according to Behr, who has played the charming, smoothtalking King Henry since 2005. “How many guys do you know have their face on a coin?” he asked. While Behr, 42, spends his autumn weekends parading around a 16th-century village in doublet and crown, he’s pretty humble about his role. Playing His Majesty is an honor and privilege thanks to the wonderful interactions he has with the audience, especially children. Wherever he turns, the Minnetonka resident has the opportunity to leave a knightly impression on a new clump of festival-goers, as well as himself. He calls it: “Three Feet of Magic.” “You can walk three feet and have just this amazing exchange with a child that has a lasting and profound impact on you,” he said. Much like real royalty, life in the Royal Court is incredibly scheduled, Behr said. The 18-member group opens and closes
As the Shakopee City Council wrestles with whether it can start socking money away for a coming bubble of road overlays without raising taxes, Councilor Matt Lehman and Mayor John Schmitt are at odds over whether the city can continue to save for future buildings at the same time. The city, which charges departments annual rent for facility depreciation, has been able to pay for five of the last seven municipal buildings entirely with cash. Only one — the Public Works building constructed in 2005 — required a complete loan. City Finance Director Julie Linnihan has recommended the city do the same for road projects to avoid future spikes in the levy. Councilors agreed to put $200,000 away next year for future road overlays, but don’t see eye-to-eye on how to pay for it. Last week, the council split 3-2

But it also means the buildingimprovement fund will shrink, rather than grow, going forward. The council could adopt a stance to only partially fund new buildings with cash, but Lehman would prefer the city not save at all for them. On Tuesday night, the council also split on whether to raise the preliminary 2012 tax levy by $355,000 — a 1 percent increase. Schmitt and Councilors Steve Clay and Heitzman want wiggle

Raised river crossing here: $31 million BY MARK OLSON AND SHANNON FIECKE firstname.lastname@example.org
The Minnesota Department of Transportation has been hesitant to publicly state how much it could cost to flood-proof a local river crossing, other than it would be in the tens of millions of dollars. Preliminary design estimates provided by the city of Chaska to the Chaska Herald show the cost could be quite high. Raising the County Road 101 crossing in downtown Shakopee could be about $31 million, while flood-proofing Highway 41 between Shakopee and Chaska would cost $12 million less, at about $19 million. The down-
town Shakopee cost is higher because a land bridge across its narrow crossing would be more than twice as long as one in Chaska. Approximately $30 million was left for state flood-mitigation projects, but the pool may shrink due to the state government shutdown. However, funding could also come from other sources. “At this point, I think it’s a financial decision,” said Chaska City Engineer Bill Monk. Additional funds could be made available if the state relinquished control of the Carver County side of the 101 crossing in Shakopee. When a road comes off the state highway grid, the new owner gets turn-back
funds for future renovation, similar to what was done with County Road 101 through Shakopee. Scott and Carver counties could possibly contribute internal funds and apply turn-back funds to make the 101 crossing project a go or build it wider than the state would otherwise do. With limited bonding dol lars available, only one crossing can be chosen. Engineers are also looking at modifying Highway 169 for both flooding and routine congestion relief. Options include adding a temporary lane during seasonal flooding on Highway

County in ‘perfect tax storm’
WE WANT YOUR …
Commissioners not expected to backfill state cuts BY SHANNON FIECKE email@example.com
Even if Scott County freezes its tax levy next year, the average homeowner will still pay $60 more in county property taxes just to make up for changes at the state level. After years of covering state reductions, the County Board appears unwilling — and in their minds unable — to eat such a large tax increase set in motion by the state Legislature. “Someone else is painting us into the corner,” said Scott County Board Chair Tom Wolf of Credit River Township, who was elected on an anti-tax increase platform. County Administrator Gary Shelton said the elimination of a state property tax credit program alone is estimated to increase property taxes 5 percent statewide. That doesn’t include losses in direct aid that counties received for implementing state and federal programs. Instead of trying to backfi ll for the state, which Shelton said would require drastic changes, the administrator is recommending the County Board just focus on its own problems — how to pay for higher fuel and energy costs, equipment pu rchases a nd slight increases to employee pay and health insurance. Commissioners will be asked Tuesday to raise
the gross tax levy by about $ 560,000, a nearly 1 percent increase that is the equivalent of the growth in properties across the county. The remainder of that $4.3 million gap will be covered through budget contingencies and staff restructuring. It’s likely that a dozen or more positions will be eliminated or restructured through retirements and attrition, resulting in an estimated $1.5 million in ongoing savings. The proposed $ 61 million tax levy would result in an approximately $70 tax increase per home — although only $10 of that is attributable to the 1 percent proposed gross levy increase. The rest (approximately $3.3 million) is due to the loss of state aid and changes in the state’s property tax credit program, which is shifting the tax burden of lower valued homes onto businesses, farmers and higher valued homes. Additionally, the county is expecting to lose approximately $161,000 in tax revenue from a mandatory program that redistributes commercial property taxes throughout the metro area. “If you had a perfect tax storm this is a perfect tax storm,” said Shelton. “The reason it’s hitting all at once is because for years they haven’t done anything.” Wolf believes state legislators are being disingenuous
by stating they balanced the budget without tax increases. He asks where’s the state tax reductions to make up for the loss to property taxpayers. “I don’t want to be the only one getting called when those property tax statements go out,” said Commissioner Barbara Marschall of Prior Lake during a budget workshop last week. “I want legislators to get more calls than I.” Com missioners i nsist the state has simply shifted its problems onto cities and counties without undertaking structural changes the county has been force to make. While the number of state employees grew the last couple years, Scott County reduced its number of full-time-equivalent employees by approximately 25 (or 3.6 percent) from 2009 to 2011, officials here say. “If the state was run more like Scott County, I don’t think we’d be in this mess,” said Commissioner Joe Wagner of Sand Creek Township. Scott County is second to last in the state in terms of general operating expenses per capita. Self-insured, it has the second-lowest cost for employee health insurance in the metro area. It is second to Washington County, which funds only half of its employee benefits, while Scott County covers 80 percent. The county is budgeting for a 4 percent increase next year.
Scott is the only county in the country known to have a true pay-for-performance compensation model. It is budgeting nearly $500,000 to account for 2011 merit increases, but is hoping to negotiate a hard salary freeze with unions for 2012. Despite $8.6 million in losses from the state since 2008, the county has managed to increase its operating balance to recommended levels with a flat tax levy in 2010 and a 1.6 percent increase in 2011. Shelton said the county must begin making up for equipment pu rchases a nd facility maintenance that it delayed to get through the past few years. He has $1.8 million in capital requests for new fleet (squad cars, snow plows, etc.); facility upgrades like roof and carpet replacement; upgrades to the 911 dispatching equipment, phone system and servers; and natural resources management work. He wants t he cou nty to maintain a strong fund balance and not rely on one-time savings to balance the 2012 budget. “I strongly encourage you to not make short-term decisions. Look five years out. Leave something in the tank because the whitewaters are clearly not over,” Shelton advised commissioners on last week.

City still among new-housing leaders
Detours gone in downtown Shakopee
While August housing construction activity in the metropolitan area showed an 18 percent spike in units over July, primarily due to the inclusion of a 120-unit project in Minneapolis, overall the industry remains stable. Total permits were 4 percent higher than in August 2010 while units were down 5 percent, according to statistics from the Builders Association of the Twin Cities (BATC). The report showed there were 256 permits (one fewer than in July) for a total of 437 units during four weeks in the month of
After months of reconstruction, much of the work on County Road 101 in downtown Shakopee is done. The roadway opened to a single lane of traffic in each direction Friday. Final paving is anticipated in midSeptember. Street light pole installation is scheduled to begin late this week.
The one-mile reconstruction project includes replacing the current roadway, sidewalk pavement, sanitary sewer and storm sewer facilities due to the age of facilities and condition of the roadway. Reconstruction began on April 11 and is scheduled for completion in October 2011. Shannon Fiecke
August. So far this year, 1,837 permits have been issued for a total of 2,731 units. Shakopee was among the top five cities in new-home permits issued in August with 12. The leader was Woodbury with 22, followed by Maple Grove (21), Blaine (18), Chanhassen (14) and Shakopee. In the total number of permits issued for the year through August, Shakopee is fi fth in the metro area. Blaine is fi rst with 178, followed by Maple Grove (138), Woodbury (128), Plymouth (106) and Shakopee (83). Pat Minelli

Chaska Farm & Garden, longtime business, closing One of Chaska’s most prominent corners is about to be completely empty. After 26 years on the northwest side of Highway 41 and County Road 61, Chaska Farm & Garden is closing. “It’s always been an option,” said owner Tom Hayden of closing. “But it was never my Plan A.” “The business has changed over the years,” he continued. “There’s not enough demand.” Hayden said that his profits began to wane noticeably in 2 0 0 8 when the economy t a n ke d a nd new H i g hway 2 1 2 op e n e d t o t h e n o r t h . “It was difficult,” he said. “Both the stock market crashed and the road moved.” B u si ne s s r eb ou nde d i n 2 0 0 9 on ly to fa l l of f agai n over t he l ast t wo yea rs. “If compliments were sales, we’d be doing just fine,” he said. Hayden kept waiting for things to pick up and the economy to bounce back, but it hasn’t happened yet and he doesn’t foresee it happening in the next five years. “I saw the sales last year and they were scary,” he said. “My employees made more last year than I did.” This year’s late spring didn’t help matters either, although Hayden conceded, “You can only blame so much on the weather.” A fter initiating eminent domain on the corner in 2006, Chaska city staff “bent over backwards” to work with him, Hayden said. The city sought to keep Hayden, who leases the space, on the site temporarily while seeking a more permanent location for his gar-den center. For a time, Hayden was working with Mike and Sarah Hanlon to relocate next to the Mill House Gallery. More recently, Hayden was eyeing a deal that would have moved him to the Cooper’s Foods parking lot across Highway 41. “That would have required an investment on my part,” Hayden explained. “But I just don’t see things improving.”

Hayden said that for the last decade, he has seen fewer avid gardeners – many of the baby boomer generation – coming to his business. “The older, serious gardeners are dropping off the map,” he said. “And the next generation is not that keen on [garden-ing].” The economy plays a big role in that, too, he believes. “What I sell is not something you have to have,” he said. Hayden intends to sell off his existing product before closing up shop, but there’s one thing he knows about his timeline. “I won’t be here for the Christmas season,” he said. Hayden is planning to get out of the garden business all together, although he isn’t quite sure what his next job will be yet. He said he’ll miss his customers most of all. “We have the loyalist customers,” he offered. H ayden got his st a r t i n Chaska 30 years ago when he teamed up with Tim Kenny and Julie Alden to take over a farm hardware and feed store on Chestnut Street. They added a garden center and two years later moved to Second Street. It was 1986 when Chaska Farm & Garden moved to its current location adjacent to Firemen’s Park. And there it will remain until there are no more flowers, no more ornamental grasses, no more bags of birdseed left to sell. Hayden and his two full-time employees – Barrie Anderson and Kevin May – are preparing for plenty of customer disappoint-ment in the coming weeks as news of their closure spreads. “We’ll have to put out a box of Kleenex,” joked Anderson. They’ll miss working at the garden center too. “I’ll miss the camaraderie,” said Anderson. “And the customers. And working outside.” For May, it’s the end of a long chapter in his life. He started working at Chaska Farm & Garden 25 years ago. “It was a high school job that I never left,” he said.

Meth task force golf tourney is Friday
PUBLIC SAFETY BRIEFS
Fundraiser has aided in halting drug abuse
A Shakopee man was so upset his employer would not give him days off to memorialize the one-year anniversary of his mother’s death that he threatened to kill his co-workers, according to a criminal complaint fi led in Scott County District Court. John Dinh, 50, allegedly said he would kill a human resource manager and others at the Shakopee manufacturing plant if he did not get additional days off. According to a criminal complaint, Dinh angrily punched himself in the head with his fi st and told a co-worker, “I don’t care about my life. If I die, others die. I kill her.” The man said Dinh had the scariest look on his face that he’d ever seen, according to court documents. Dinh, who admitted to his superiors that he made the threats, was fired. Afraid he might return, Toro secured its doors, pulled shades down on windows and arranged for armed security. Two union stewards also reported that Dinh told them people would die if he didn’t get his job back. Dinh allegedly told police he understood why people were afraid of him, but did not feel he did anything wrong and he thought it was Toro’s fault. Dinh was arrested and jailed. He has been released on $50,000 bail and faces one felony count of making terrorist threats. Shannon Fiecke

On Friday, golfers will tee off for the fifth-annual golf tournament that has raised thousands to combat meth abuse in the area. The dividends have been great, organizers say. In 2005, the year the Scott County Meth Task Force was formed at the height of the meth epidemic, 24 children were removed from their homes due to their parents’ meth addictions. Payments to county fostercare providers alone totaled $134,000. In 11 cases, children were eventually adopted or custody was given to a relative. The cost of those who remained in foster care until 2008 was $253,000. Last year, only three chil-
dren had to be put in foster care due to meth abuse in their homes. “We do attribute it in part to the educational efforts,” said Scott County Attorney Pat Ciliberto. The number of people prosecuted in the county for meth has also dropped, from 136 to 84 cases, and the nature of cases has changed, with most now involving just meth possession and none for meth production in local labs. While the task force counts these successes, its fight continues. The golf tournament has raised approximately $20,000 each of the last three years, much of which has gone toward drug prevention programs. The county contracts with Climb Theatre, a nationally recognized children’s theater group, to present interactive a nti- gateway d r ug presentations at all schools in the county. Youths don’t start out abusing hard drugs like meth, but

Following the theater’s presentations, underage drinking and marijuana use dropped, but there was still a spike in illegal usage of prescription
drugs, Ciliber to told Scott County commissioners this week. That led the Scott County Meth Task Force to help put drop-boxes in area police departments recently for people to safely dispose of unused prescription drugs, pet medications and illegal drugs and paraphernalia. “We have made great progress,” says Scott County Sheriff Kevin Studnicka. County Commissioner Dave Menden, a former county sheriff, told the County Board this week the educational efforts are important. “You got to get to those kids,” he said. “That prevention is worth its weight in gold.” During a discussion about the upcoming fundraiser, Menden moved that the county contribute $ 5,000 to the task force. “You already are,” responded Ciliberto.

Community Center roof could cost $600,000 City officials were expecting to replace the leaky 16-year-old roof on the Shakopee Community Center, but what they weren’t anticipating was the cost. The city budgeted $300,000 to reroof next year, but the City Council has been told the project could reach $400,000 to $600,000, depending on the quality of the insulation under the existing flat roof. The council hired the engineering fi rm Skyline Building Envelope Consultants to design and oversee the project. The firm, one of three to submit proposals to the city, came highly recommended from the Shakopee School District. It will provide design and bidding
services for $16,000 and project management, including a fulltime on-site inspector during the roof installation, for an additional $12,000. In addition to replacing the 58,000-square-foot roof, a contractor may be asked to construct an internal opening to the roof. Currently, the roof can only be reached from an outside ladder. In response to a question from city Councilor Pamela Punt about the engineering contract cost, Assistant City Administrator Kris Wilson said the roof installation is expected to last eight to nine weeks. The type of roof on the Community Center has a 15-year life.
Parks and Recreation Director Jaime Polley has recommended another $180,000 in major maintenance projects at the Community Center next year, including resurfacing the running track ($30,000), replacing black flooring throughout the ice arena ($ 85,000) and replacing the radiant heating system ($50,000). Smaller recreation projects (totaling $37,000), which might come from the department’s 2012 operations budget, include a $10,000 movie screen for Huber Park (it’s currently rented, so there would be a 2.5-year payback) and $14,000 to replace flooring in the vending and entrance area of the community center. During her 2012 budget pre-
sentation, Polley also asked for $600,000 from the city’s building fund to add a second floor to the fitness center, which was one of the projects in last year’s failed levy referendum. Given the outcome of the referendum and the city’s tight economic situation, it seems unlikely to be approved. Each city department contributes annual rent to the building fund. The long-term capital improvement plan for the recreation department also shows $6 million for a second ice sheet in 2013, $3 million for an indoor turf facility in 2015, $2 million for a senior center in 2017 and $5.4 million for an indoor pool in 2021.
Child awakens to find stranger in room Savage police issued a warning advising parents to secure their homes and supervise their children closely as the department investigates a report of a suspicious person near the 4400 block of 137th Street W. At noon Tuesday, police received a report that a child awoke during the previous night and saw an unknown
person in their bedroom. The screen window of the child’s bedroom had been removed. The report comes one week after a resident of the same area informed police that a chair had been found under the window of their child’s bedroom and that the window screen had been removed. No evidence of entry was apparent in that case.
“We are aggressively investigating these incidents and have increased patrol of the affected area,” said police Capt. Dave Muelken. He stressed that parents should lock their home’s windows and doors at all times, walk their children to and from school, and do not leave their children unsupervised. A description of the suspect
is not available at this time. The Police Department is also asking for the public’s help as officers continue their investigation. Anyone who has information that they think could be related to these incidents is asked to call the Savage Police Department. Residents should call 911 immediately if suspicious activity is in progress.
Man accused of threatening co-workers
Charges: Man grabbed oﬃcer’s Taser A 35-year-old St. Paul man who was upset his girlfriend was being kicked out of Arizonas Restaurant & Lounge in Shakopee allegedly tried to take a police officer’s Taser. Police were called to the restaurant on Canterbury Road at 1 a.m. Aug. 22 on the report of a disorderly female refusing to leave. The woman told police she would leave, but as officers spoke with her, the woman’s boyfriend, Mark John Decourcy, allegedly told her to stop talking to the officers. He took a hold of her arm, and the officer told him there was no reason to be upset because no one was in trouble. According to the criminal compliant, Decourcy then turned toward the officer and attempted grab his shoulder. The officer stepped back and Decourcy quickly moved toward him, grabbing his Taser. The officer immediately pushed Decourcy away, but the Taser holster broke off the officer’s belt. It took two pairs of handcuffs to restrain Decourcy because of his size. He was arrested and charged in Scott County District Court with one felony count of disarming a police officer and one gross misdemeanor count of obstructing the legal process. Shannon Fiecke
Regional sewer work resumes in various areas in Shakopee Metropolitan Council Environmental Services, operator of the metro-area wastewater collection and treatment system, has resumed work on its repair of the regional sanitary sewer pipe in Shakopee. The work, which began in late 2010, was halted during the state government shutdown. Cured-in-place pipe is being used for the repairs, which is under way on an approximately two-mile segment of the sewer, located on the south side of Highway 169 between Marystown Road on the west, and Eagle Creek Boulevard on the east. The majority of this segment of the sewer is in the Highway 169 right-of-way.
L a met t i a nd S on s wa s awa rded t he cont rac t for t hi s projec t a nd i s u si ng fast-curing pipe to minimize inconvenience. The old, damaged pipe is not actually removed, so digging is confined to the locations of 34 manholes that also are being replaced. This repair method minimizes damage to road surfaces, tree loss and nearby landscaping. The sewer repair will continue to progress to the east, ending at Highway 169 and Eagle Creek Boulevard late this year. Repair of the section of sewer that crosses under Tow n li ne Avenue wi l l be scheduled for sometime this fall. Work began in late 2010.

Motorists: Extra caution needed as school opens School opened in Shakopee and most of the area on Tuesday and as some of us adjust to new schedules (and, perhaps, quieter homes), it’s a good time for motorists to be reminded that extra caution is important. Drivers should pay particularly close attention to students crossing streets and getting on or off school buses. Drivers need to use caution as they approach school buses, particularly their “danger zone” — the area near where students get on and off and where most school bus injuries and deaths occur. According to the Minnesota Department of Public Safety (DPS), more children are killed outside of a school bus than as occupants of a bus. According to the DPS, Minnesota school buses make at least 10,000 daily trips, yet that mode of transportation is relatively safe. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says that school buses are the safest mode of transportation for children. In fact, children are eight times safer riding in a bus to school than in any other vehicles, the national organization says. But preventable accidents still happen each year. The DPS offers these safety tips for students: I When getting off a bus, look to be sure no cars are passing on the shoulder (side of the road). I Before crossing the street, take
five “giant steps” out from the front of the bus, or until the driver’s face can be seen. I Wait for the driver to signal that it’s safe to cross. I Look “left-right-left” when coming to the edge of the bus to make sure traffic is stopped. Keep watching traffic when crossing. I Cross only at intersections or crosswalks. I Obey all traffic signs and signals. Motorists must stop at least 20 feet from a school bus that is displaying red flashing lights or stop arm when approaching from the rear and from the opposite direction on undivided roads. Red fl ashing lights on buses indicate students are either entering or exiting the bus. While motorists are not required to stop for a bus if the bus is on the opposite side of a separated roadway, they should remain alert for children. But bus safety is not only the responsibility of motorists: Parents should discuss safety with their children, including how to approach and exit a bus. Another reminder: State law requires vehicles to stop for all pedestrians in crosswalks. Caution and slow speeds are the most important things for motorists to remember around schools.
Suburban transit is cost-effective service Transit is an important part of our regional transportation infrastructure in both the Twin Cities and the metropolitan suburban areas. Over the last 20 years, suburban transit providers have shown they can not only deliver frequent service, but can do so cost-efficiently and in cooperation with one another. The cost to provide suburban express service is generally higher (longer routes) than the cost of urban local service; however, when you measure efficiency by subsidy per passenger per mile, suburban express trips are among the most efficient, averaging about $30 cents per passenger per mile. The unmeasured, and often unrecognized, benefits suburban transit providers bring to the region are: I A reduction in the number of vehicles on some of the most congested highways in the region (three buses carrying an average 30 passengers per day will result in 660 fewer vehicles on Highway 169 per day). I The suburban providers are cost-effective micro labs where new transit techniques are tested and refined for use by all. Transit and transit funding were the subject of great debate during the 2011 legislative session. The debate was between the Metropolitan Council and Metro Transit against the so-called “opt-out” Suburban transit providers. At the core of the issue was cost and funding. Suburban providers said in light of the economy they would live with the existing amount of motor vehicle sales tax (MVST) funds (the primary revenue source for transit providers). But a freeze was not enough; suburban provides also took a $3.3 million cut in MVST receipts. The second issue is the size of the fund balances carried by some of the suburban providers. There is no question some suburban providers have healthy fund balances, especially when viewed as a percentage of a provider’s operating budget, but these also need to be placed in the proper context. Fund balances are used to help pay the local share for facilities such as park-and-ride stations and buses and to fund additional operational costs, especially as MVST receipts decline. For example, between 2007

KANSIER GUEST COMMENTARY
Jane Kansier is Prior Lake assistant city manager
and 2011, Shakopee, Prior Lake and Scott County built two transit stations, acquired a third site, and increased routes from four per day to 30 per day. BlueXpress rider numbers have doubled since the opening of the Southbridge Crossings Transit Station in July 2007. Suburban transit providers have experienced more growth in the region than any other transit provider, already averaging 7 percent growth in the first six months of 2011, compared to the 2 percent growth experienced by Metro Transit. Suburban providers have proved they can not only provide frequent service, but can do so cost-efficiently. Prior Lake, Shakopee and Scott County partnered several years ago to do transit planning and operate the BlueXpress community service. More recently, Scott and Carver counties partnered to form SmartLink Transit and to provide Dial-a-Ride and mobility service to residents of both counties. Between January and August 2010, SmartLink carried more passengers than Anoka, Dakota, Hennepin and Washington counties combined. On average, SmartLink carries four passengers per hour, double the two passengers per hour average of the other providers. The cost for this service is approximately $15 per passenger, compared to $25 per passenger for other providers. The cost to provide suburban express service is generally higher

Many who died in war have no memorial In last week’s paper, the family of Richard L. Cox asked why we should honor Pfc. James Herrgott and not all the soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines who died in service to their country. That’s a great question. But throughout the letter was a tone that implied if we honored Pfc. Herrgott we would be dishonoring the memory of Richard Cox and others like him. I disagree. I did not know Richard Cox. I did not know James Herrgott. But I
command and serve with hundreds of men and women just like them. They did not die for you, they did not die for me or for God and country; they died for each other. They didn’t worry about who got the “credit” or who got the medals, they worried about their buddies. The Cox family is angry. I understand that. For them, the family of James Herrgott and thousands of families just like them that anger will never go away. Their hopes and dreams for their loved one died on that day. I am sorry that Richard Cox wasn’t recognized by the community in some way. I don’t know who to blame. But that anger doesn’t need to be directed at Pfc. Herrgott or the people working to honor him and others like him. Richard Cox’s name is forever etched on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial wall in Washington, D.C. Where is the memorial with the names of World War II veterans killed in action? Where is the memorial with the names of Korean War veterans killed in action? Where is James Herrgott’s name memorialized? Why did Richard Cox get a memorial with his name on it and not other war veterans? How far do we want to go with this? If you could ask Richard Cox what he would do, I would bet he would say, name the road for Pfc. Herrgott. Richard Leigh Cox was a Navy corpsman and a combat veteran who lived and died serving others. I know this veteran, and perhaps many of his buddies, would agree.

Finger food at fancy restaurant I had a little trouble at the drivethrough window of a fast-food place one morning this week. The voice on the other end of the magical speaker goofed up my order, and when I corrected her she got a little snippy with me. I felt kind of foolish arguing with a speaker and a display screen, but at least I got a straw to go with my iced coffee. In a fast-food environment, particularly with the faceless speaker box, there isn’t the same personal connection you get with a slow-food restaurant (as my kids used to call them). When you have a waiter or a server they are with you for a longer period of time and hence should have a greater interest in your well-being; at least in theory. There’s a restaurant in town I frequent because they have a bar where I can sit and eat my lunch, drink my iced tea, read the paper, watch eight TVs, and listen to music being played through speakers above my head. I only do this when I am alone, for it would certainly be rude to be so distracted with a dining partner.
KUCERA COMMUNITY COLUMNIST
I had a meeting in town the other night so I had supper there. The bar stools were filled with people I didn’t recognize (the regular lunch crowd had shuffled out). I took a spot at a booth but I felt a little out of place. I couldn’t see the TVs very well and the music was hard to hear, and although I brought a book to read, it wasn’t the same as reading the paper. When I was finished and ready to leave the server brought my receipt and said, “You guys have a nice day.” I looked around to make sure
that someone hadn’t slipped into my booth unnoticed. Not seeing anyone I considered that perhaps there was a character sitting with me that only the server could see — kind of Elwood P. Dowd (the character Jimmy Steward played in “Harvey”) — only different. I left a large enough tip to cover both of our meals, just to be on the safe side. The wait staffs in restaurants have it tough. I’ve never been a waiter and am quite sure I don’t have the patience for it. Also, servers are expected to anticipate a customer’s needs and satisfy them before they are requested. For example, water, menus and condiments are usually brought to the table automatically, but not silverware. In some restaurants you must ask for it. I was eating lunch some time ago with my friend Jeff. He and I try to get together once a month for lunch, and it was my turn to drive to his town. He selected a restaurant at a golf course. It was

room as the budget is finetuned before the fi nal levy is set in December, but Lehman and Councilor Pamela Punt say they won’t budge from a flat levy. (Lehman still voted for the $15.2 million preliminary levy, however, on Tuesday). “At the end of the day, I’m not going to be supportive of any kind of increase,” said Punt. “It’s the equivalent of giving my 14-year-old son $50 and telling him to only spend $25 and expecting to get $25 back. Human nature is to spend it.” Clay said he was leaning toward a fl at levy, but wants to leave a buffer as the city decides how to pay for a third fi re station and better understands the fallout from changes to the state property tax relief program. Clay, a property assessor by living, recently sat at a meeting with four statisticians from the Minnesota Revenue Department and said “their apparent level of confidence didn’t inspire a lot of confidence in me.” As the city looks toward opening a third fi re station in Shakopee’s Southbridge area in the next few years, it will also need to determine how to pay for the station, new e qu ipment a nd add it ion a l
fi refi ghters. Lehman, who philosophically opposes charging today’s taxpayers for future buildings, thinks Shakopee has too much cash — $6 million — in its capital improvement fund. (This fund is also used for new roofs and boilers, etc.) Lehman also wants the city to once again be able to bond for road overlays. “Two years from now we’re looking at $1 million for overlay projects,” Lehman explained to the Valley News. “I want to go back to our assessment policy so we can bond and pay for it over 10 years. That will minimize the impact on taxpayers.” The fi re station to be built in Southbridge could deplete half of the building fund in one year. Schmitt believes it’s in the best interest of the city to try to save for such buildings. “In the long-run and shortrun, we’re saving taxpayers’
money,” said Schmitt. “Those communities that bond have a whole lot tied up in interest payments.” Having cash reserves is also important for the city’s bond rating, Clay said. Linnihan said other cities are in crisis mode because they don’t have a building fund like Shakopee’s. “Now the crisis will be on the street,” declared Lehman. “What do we do, just tax everybody out of their homes?” “We’re not taxing anybody out of their homes!” responded Schmitt, pointing out that the average household income in Shakopee is more than $77,000. “We’re not proposing to overtax folks; we’re proposing to maintain and do what we’ve done all along.” The city has to look at the bigger picture, Lehman said, including a federal government t hat ’s close to ba n kruptcy and a likely county tax increase of $70 on average per
household. “There’s going to be multiple impacts hitting people,” he said. Schmitt said it’s not the city’s job to buffer the county and state. “We’ve frozen spending. We’ve been dong our share for three years,” he said. The council has declined to refill a natural resources coordinator position that it previously cut, but last week authorized the Police Department to finally fill its 47th sworn officer slot. The Police Department, which is at its lowest officer/population ratio in recent history, will still be five officers short of the recommended level. The council has also opted to slightly increase the hours for an accountant position and allow the Fire Department to adopt a day-duty crew at the cost of $25,000 next year. (This will grow to $50,000 per year when fully implemented). But the council declined 3-2 to realize $27,000 in savings by laying-off the remaining city custodian. The city has transitioned all other cleaning staff over to a private cleaning fi rm as custodians resigned or accepted an early-retirement offer. Councilors Clay, Heitzman and Lehman voted to retain the full-time custodian, whose annual wage and benefits total $57,000. Shannon Fiecke

169 from County Road 101 to Pioneer Trail, similar to what was done this year. The state could also permanently add a lane on Highway 169 from County Road 18 to Pioneer Trail — something that might be prohibitive because of a projected $51.3 million cost. A final MnDOT report is expected in October. The outcome will be used to determine which crossing should be used to apply for state bonding dollars. Another new fact highlighted by Chaska officials is how much traffic has decreased across the Chaska river crossing. In a 2007 MnDOT traffic study, 18,500 vehicles traveled along Highway 41 through downtown Chaska every day. However, the numbers in a 2009 study — which MnDOT is using to decide which river crossing to flood-proof — 12,500 vehicles headed through Chaska, a 6,000 vehicle drop. “It’s a complete turnaround,” Monk told Chaska city councilors last week. Furthermore, the earlier study projected 36,500 vehicles headed through Chaska by 2040. The updated numbers, projected to 2030, estimate 20,200 vehicles traveling through Chaska daily. “This is almost half of what the projection was,” Monk noted. The drop in estimated traffic is a huge deal for the city of Chaska which, for decades, has struggled with how to maintain a massive traffic flow through its historic downtown while trying to maintain some sort of
community identity and viable business district. There may be a couple reasons for the drop, Monk said. The numbers used before the river crossing study were at the peak of the development era, Monk notes, “before the economy crashed and before [new Highway] 212 was open. And the numbers they were projecting at that point have seriously been impacted by both.” The numbers will undoubtedly help determine which river crossing MnDOT will flood-proof.
SHAKOPEE OR CHASKA? Creating a f lood-proofed river crossing is nothing new. For years, MnDOT has studied the feasibility of a major new river crossing connecting Highway 212 in Carver County and Highway 169 in Scott County. It recently chose a path for the road, along the west side of downtown Chaska. However, with construction likely decades off, the state has been seeking lower-cost solutions to the seemingly increasing flood closures in this area (three since spring 2010). Each day floods close crossings in Chaska and Shakopee costs commuters an estimated $ 670,000. This is expected to reach $1.7 million by 2030. MnDOT is considering raising the river crossing in Chaska or Shakopee by constructing a land bridge, sitting on pilings, across the flood bottoms, and using fill to raise other portions of the roadbed. The project can’t affect water-flow, due to federal environmental rules. Unless federal permission were granted, Highway 101 riv-
er crossing in Shakopee would have to fully close for one year to raise the crossing without treading on outside the rightof-way. Alternatively, Highway 41 in Chaska could remain open during an estimated 18-month construction window.
FLOOD-PROOFING A new crossing elevation of 724 feet in Shakopee would be higher than all 10 floods that triggered closures in the past. In Chaska, the river bridge constructed a few years ago wasn’t designed to hold traffic if water hits its metal beams, according to Monk. Since the bridge will remain in place, the heightened crossing could only achieve a new elevation of 722.5 feet — below the level of the historic 1965 flood. The ultimate cost/benefit ratio is only slightly higher for 101, according to MnDOT studies. However when it comes to vehicle crossings per day, Highway 101 is clearly on top. According to MnDOT, using 2009 numbers, County Road 101 would carry an estimated 27,900 vehicles per day if Highway 41 is closed due to flooding. If Highway 41 were to remain open, it would only carry 22,300 vehicles per day — 5,600 vehicles fewer than the 101 option. And by 2030, County Road 101 is estimated to carry 7,000 more vehicles per day than the Highway 41 option.
THREE LANES? The city of Chaska wouldn’t necessarily be opposed to MnDOT choosing the County Road 101 option. “We get concerned if there’s no options for being able to cross the river during those
flooding times. Keeping 41 open is important,” said Chaska City Administrator Matt Podhradsky. However, if the improved crossing goes to 101, Podhradsky asked the hypothetical question: “Is there an opportunity to regain our main street downtown?” In the past, the city of Chaska had prepared for removing parking entirely from the east side of Highway 41, while adding a center turning lane to the four-lane roadway. Now, with the lower traffic counts, officials ponder returning Highway 41 in downtown Chaska to one lane in either direction, with parking on both sides and a center turning lane, with some areas for a dedicated right-turn lane. The city discussed the option at its work session last week night. However, before the city begins studying a three-lane road through its downtown, it needs MnDOT to make a decision. “Once a decision [has been made] the city will step back and say, ‘How will that potentially influence the short- and long-term plans for 41 through downtown?’” Monk said. Chaska leaders have also expressed reservation about 41 being raised because the state would also widen the road so much the entire river crossing could conceivably someday become four lanes south of the bridge. Although the new crossing would initially be only two lanes, area officials worry the state would someday make it four as an alternative to building a more robust — and vastly more costly — new river crossing west of downtown Chaska.

“The Royal Court is just about everywhere, as is the king, during the course of the day,” Behr said. Besides the morning gate show — where you’re never quite sure what you’ll get — Behr’s favorite part of the day is the children’s knighting ceremony. Behr became involved with the Renaissance Festival at age 12. His family had just moved to the area from Arizona when a friend active in children’s theater asked if he wanted to audition. He landed the role of Lance the Squire, walking around the grounds hawking for Witchwood and Puke & Snot. As a teen, he joined the
five years ago. Today, he owns Converdia, a Twin Citiesbased mobile marketing and technology fi rm that develops mobile applications. “I still wear my tights in the office on Mondays through Fridays,” Behr joked. “My employees get a little concerned when I wear the crown.” Though Behr has been at the festival 30 years, he’s not the actor of the family. His brother, Jason, lives in Hollywood and starred on the television show “Roswell.” Behr calls the Renaissance Festival his annual holiday. “I honestly really do this because I love the interaction and I love all the people and I love the festival,” he said. As a senior member of the court, Behr is also responsible for training the
court, which includes Queen Elizabeth, Prince James and Lady Tayrn, the king’s administrative assistant and schedule keeper. His group rehearses every other weekend, May through opening day. He has a couple of rules for the court: pay attention to the audience and treat everyone you meet like he or she is the most interesting person on the planet. “Our guests are coming through our gates because they want to forget all their troubles,” Behr said. “They want to come and experience laughter, all these moments of magic out there.” The Minnesota Renaissance Festival runs weekends through Oct. 2 on the festival grounds just south of Shakopee.

Royal Court as Prince Philip, a role he played for 20 years before his coronation as King Henry. Behr attributes his success to great mentors, like longtime Renaissance King George Hermann, and paying attention to the crowd’s cues. Unlike normal theater where you have script and back story, each interaction is improv. “It really is kind of like life, where it evolves as you evolve as a character and a performer out there,” he said. The skills he’s learned about paying attention to an audience and reacting to its response have carried beyond the festival, too, Behr said. Outside the Ren Fest, Behr is an entrepreneur.

In Loving memory of
It’s been 10 years since you’ve passed, when cancer took you away. A decade since we saw you last, we lost our hero that day. Delicate silver tears will fall and waltz onto the ground, it’s been a torture all these years to not have you around. You didn’t leave without a fight, you fought it just for us. Staying alive with all your might, to see your last child get on that bus. A beautiful mother, strong and true, two young children, 5 & 7, she helps us keep our memories of you, 10 years older since you went to heaven. Our angel is with us day & night, with life you’ll help us through. Even though you are out of our sight, we’ll always love & miss you. by Kelsey Fondly missed by Vickie, Grant, Kelsey and family

CARNIVAL OF Fletcher
F letcher, a n e a sygoi n g , 51-pound pointer, would like to be a companion to you and your other dog. He is houseand crate-trained. His foster home lets him have the run of the house, and he is wellbehaved. Fletcher likes to sleep on your bed or on a dog bed in your room. If you head for the car, he hopes you’ll take him along. This smart, friendly 6- to 7-year-old dog gets along with kids, dogs, cats and new folks.
I hope you’ll leave some water in the sink so I can play and I’ll also drink from running water. When you sit I jump onto your lap and will stay for a little while and then I’m off to play with the toy mice and balls. I ankle rub, door-greet strangers and follow you. I’m an active, easygoing, affectionate kitten born in August 2010 who likes to sleep in your bed. I’m fi ne with most cats and kind kids. I enjoy chattering and trying to communicate with you.

Schmitt had been up since 3 a.m. thinking about all the unexpected issues he figured would pop up on the first day of building use. Sure enough, Schmitt handled several last-minute tasks, such as getting electrical power to the kitchen counter to serve breakfast.

Good morning, Jackson Jackson Elementary opened its doors Tuesday with all the customary excitement and chaos of a brand-new building. Yet, teachers and staff pulled it all together to welcome 700 students to a new school year.
7:27 A.M. Second-grade teacher Mary Ramert, left, helps her fellow teacher, Melanie Altonen, put the finishing touches on her classroom Tuesday. There’s excitement in the air, let me tell you that,” Altonen said. “This is my 24th year teaching, and I still get the first-day jitters. That excitement. That apprehension. It’s all there.”
8:25 A.M. Jackson kindergartners, from left, Deyanira Rivera, Daniela Guerrero-Garcia and Aylin Ramirez, wait outside the school building. Teachers lined their students up by class before they ushered them into the school. It was a cool morning to start the year. “Tomorrow I’m wearing pants and long sleeves,” one little girl said.
Home repairs for when the kids head back to school A
s your family heads back to school, take some time to complete a few simple home repairs. Doing your “home”-work projects now will allow you to spend more time with your family and less time ﬁ xing, cleaning and repairing things this fall.
Get outside for some yard work After a summer full of outdoor fun, it’s time to tidy the yard before winter comes. Clean and safely place any outdoor furniture in storage. Once the furniture is put away, give your deck or patio a good power washing. Bring your indoor plants back inside and prune your trees and shrubs to encourage healthy growth. You should also remove any leaves or debris from your gutters to avoid clogs or other drainage issues.
Inspect the driveway While you’re outside, check your driveway and patch any cracks or potholes that may have resulted from the summer heat. You
may also want to consider resealing your driveway in the fall to keep it smooth and even all year long. Sealing your driveway will also protect it from any winter snow or ice damage.
Organize your garage Fall is an ideal time to clean the garage and clear out any unwanted items your family has collected over the summer. Invest in a good storage system that will keep you organized, and clear pathways around vehicles and doors. Move your rake or leaf blower to the front of the garage and consider placing holiday or winter items in an accessible spot for the coming season.
Install a remote thermostat With the kids back in school, your home may now be unoccupied for a large portion of the day. Lowering your thermostat while the family is away can provide substantial cost savings. A programmable thermostat will allow you to create custom
temperature settings for the hours you are home and away. Some models, like the AccuLink(TM) Remote Thermostat from American Standard Heating & Air Conditioning, allow you to set and control your home’s temperature remotely using most Web-enabled cell phones and computers.
Check and seal your windows Proper insulation will not only keep your family comfortable, but it may also help to improve the overall energy efﬁciency of your home. Air drafts are often easy to spot. First, make sure your windows are tightly shut. Then, feel around the edges of your windows for air leaks. If you feel a draft, you can easily seal the leaks with do-it-yourself caulk or weatherstripping. Seasonal maintenance will help to protect your home and prepare it for winter. With a little effort this fall, your “home”-work will be sure to make the grade. Source: ARA Content

REMEMBER WHEN Collected by Don McNeil, Shakopee Heritage Society
View from the Shakopee water tower on 10th Avenue in 1957.
25 years ago… From the Shakopee Valley News, 1986 When the new State Women’s Prison is Shakopee opens its doors, the book will be closed on more than 65 years of local history. The original prison was built in 1920 according to Assistant Superintendent Warren Higgs. Before that, it was housed in the administration building at Stillwater. The new prison is designated to hold 132 to 144 women. One year after the gala opening of Canterbury Downs, the new Canterbury Inn Hotel has now been opened. The new facility features the same architectural style as the race track complex. There will be a total of 176 guest rooms. As long as the track is open, it is expected that 65 to 70 percent of guests will be race track patrons; however, a year-round market is needed.
50 years ago… From the Shakopee Valley News, 1961 Shakopee Banker Ed Huber
PHOTO COURTESY THE HUBER FAMILY
and Shakopee Mayor J.C. Huber displayed one of the red and white safe driving pledge car stickers now being sold by the First National Bank of Shakopee. The reflectors are being sold at cost (40 cents) to any person who wishes to participate in the safe driving campaign by signing a special safe driving pledge. One copy is retained by the driver and the second is forwarded to Gov. Anderson’s office. Details of the Urban Renewal Program, as a stimulus to repair old and run down business and residential areas, were explained to an interested audience at the Chamber of Commerce meeting at the First National Bank. The Shakopee Community Theater will present a three-act drama, “My Three Sons.” Performances will be in the new
community theater building in Riverside Park Gary Ries and George Muenchow, Shakopee recreation director, displayed a picture painted by Ries, a Shakopee resident, and exhibited at last week’s Shakopee Festival of Art, where he was awarded a blue ribbon for his display.
100 years ago… From the Scott County Argus, 1911 Announcement: I believe it due my friends, the voters of this city, to offer an explanation on my action in allowing my name on a petition for Mayor and later withdrawing same. After being urged for sometime to make the run for the office, at the last moment I consented to the wishes of my friends;
Kindergarteners invited to Cub Scouts open house
my sole object in doing so was to further the continuance of our public improvements, namely sewer and water works. After fi ling I learned that the current mayor, who was seeking re-election, was in favor of these improvements being extended. I made an appointment to discuss this with him and he assured me he was in favor of the improvements and their extension and I decided to withdraw my name from the ticket...Mr. Thiem. News from the Fatherland: A brief resume of the most important happening in the German Empire: In the near future, perhaps before the end of the year, Austria will have the greatest navy in the world. Only in the course of the last few days the information has leaked out that for sometime past the administration of the army has been secretly engaged in building a number of flying machines of an entirely new type, which will be called the “Kaiser Aeroplane.” This most modern of all airships consists of an ingenious combination of an aeroplane and the dirigible balloon. Experts who are familiar with the construction of these machines claim that they cannot possibly fall from the sky.
Shakopee Cub Scouts invite boys in kindergarten through fi fth grade from all Shakopee schools to join Cub Scouts. Boys and an adult are encouraged to attend the open house from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. Monday, Sept. 12 in the Sun Path Elementary cafeteria to learn more and sign up. Cub Scouts explore a variety of

Jeff may have started it, or it could have been me, but one of us picked up a crouton with our fingers and put it in our mouth, then another and another. Pretty soon both of us were picking up all the croutons on the salad, even the ones with dressing on them. After

In between bites and bouts of laughter I asked him, “What kind of town do you live in where have to eat a salad with your fingers?” Within a few minutes the waitress brought the rest of our lunch. By then we had attracted some attention from the other tables. “Do you think we could have some silverware for the rest of our meal?” Jeff asked her. “It looks to me like you’re both doing just fine without it,” she said with a huff as she turned her back on us. Maybe I should just stick to the drive-through window — at least there you get a straw. Check please.

than the cost of urban local service. The suburban providers operate the longest transit routes in the region. Fares are set by the Metropolitan Council for the entire region, and there is no distance-based fare. This means the fare for a 10-mile express trip is the same as the fare for a 35-mile trip. When you factor in the cost of providing service that takes longer to provide (more miles equal more fuel and driver time), plus factor in the inability to turn that bus around to make multiple trips during the peak hour, you begin to see why suburban service generally costs more to provide. And, when you measure efficiency by subsidy per passenger per mile, suburban express trips are among the most efficient, averaging about 30 cents per passenger per mile. The challenge of transit is to have all segments of the population embrace its benefits. The suburban providers are doing just that, and in a prudent, innovative and cost-effective manner.

Also present Mark McNeill, City Administrator; Jim Thomson, City Attorney; and Judith Cox, City Clerk; R. Michael Leek, Community Development Director; Bruce Looney, Public Works Director/City Engineer; Julie Linnihan, Finance Director; and Jamie Polley, Park, Recreation and Natural Resources Director.

(Motion carried under the Consent Agenda) Clay/Heitzman moved to approve the promotion of Raoul Boudreau to the position of IT Coordinator, effective August 1, 2011, with a starting salary of Step C. of Grade 8 ($67,205) of the city pay plan and subject to a one-year probation period; and direct staff to advertise and begin the hiring process for the position of IT Specialist. (Motion carried under the Consent Agenda) Clay/Heitzman moved to approve the bills in the amount of $443,302.99 and electronic transfers in the amount of $849,423.65 for a total of $1,292,726.64. (Motion carried under the Consent Agenda) Clay/Heitzman moved to approve the minutes of July 12, 2011 and July 19, 2011. (Motion carried under the Consent Agenda) Mayor Schmitt asked if there was anyone in the audience who wished to speak on a topic that was not on the agenda. No one responded. Bruce Loney, Public Works Director/City Engineer, presented Council with the Amendment to Resolution No. 6469, by Approving a Full Access on Crossings Boulevard at Penstemon Lane East. Mr. Loney said that since the installation of a right in/right out access to the neighborhood commercial property there have been problems with trucks exiting the commercial property and turning
eastbound on Crossing Boulevard at Penstemon Lane West. Mr. Loney said that the Traffic Safety Review Committee (TSRC) has met to discuss alternatives to the problem. Mr. Loney shared with Council three alternative plans. He said the TSRC preferred Option 2 as the alternative for opening the median. Option two reduces Crossings Blvd. median and provides a full access at Crossings Blvd. and Penstemon Lane East. Mr. Loney said the cost to open the intersection and reduce the median as well as the design work will be paid for by Steve Soltau of Shakopee Crossings Limited Partnership. Lehman/Clay offered Resolution No. 7113, A Resolution Amending Resolution No. 6469, Approving the Final Plat of Southbridge Fields Addition, and moved its adoption with a modification to section II. M., the City reserves the authority to close the median at the easternmost access to Crossings Boulevard and go back to a right-in/right-out if traffic patterns warrant a change. Motion carried 5-0. Julie Linnihan, Finance Director, presented Council with the 2012 General Fund Budget discussion. Ms. Linnihan reviewed the 2012 proposed budget. Discussed at earlier meetings is the issue to initiate a capital levy for infrastructure in the amount of $200,000 and to levy $200,000 for debt service levies under the General Fund Revenues. The proposal has been to establish a specific levy for infrastructure and debt service levies. She said these two items need to be considered during budget discussions. Under Administration expenditures the Human Resource department is requesting $20,000 for a classification study that is mandated and cannot be avoided. However, there is a Telecommunications budget reduction request of -$28,000 for the discontinuation of service for public access check out. This would result in a total net reduction of -$8,000 for the Administration Budget. In the Finance Department there is a request of $8,500 to return an Accounting position to full time status. The Police Department is asking to re-classify a CSO position to part-time evidence technician position which results in a reduction of -$24,000 from their budget. The Fire Department is asking for a total of $37,000 to initiate a Duty Crew system, pay enhancement program, and potential legal fees for agreement updates with the townships. Ms. Linnihan then discussed an estimated transfer of $400,000 to pay off the debt service for the existing debt that the City has for the different debt issuances from 2002 to 2010. Ms. Linnihan said with all of the requests by the departments the total request costs is $414,000. Ms. Linnihan then discussed the building/facility improvements requests for 2012 for the Community Center. She discussed the proposed and prioritized projects which include the replacement of the arena flooring, track surfacing, and radiant heating in the arena which could be handled by the Building Internal Service Fund. The divider curtain could be funded under the Building Maintenance account. The total cost of all of the projects is $181,500 which would not need to be funded by the levy. The Community Center roofing project of approximately $300,000 cannot be presented to Council because there is not enough information for actual costs at this time. The estimated $600,000 for a 2nd Floor Fitness Center addition should be discussed by Council on whether to proceed with this project. Ms. Linnihan said that staff will initiate a policy development for the use of funds within the Building Internal Service Fund which will address the percentages of funds to be designated for significant repair projects and tasks; what percentages of funds will be designated for replacement or upgrade of existing facilities and the percentages of funds to be designated for the replacement of an existing structure or building of a new structure. Ms. Linnihan said that there is a 1% cost of living increase currently built into the budget for 2012. There will need to be continued discussion regarding a potential reduction in the Transit budget for Van Pool funding in 2012. There was no support for a 2nd floor fitness center at the community center. With regard to the General
Fund Levy, Ms. Linnihan asked Council to consider the following: a) discuss keeping a flat levy, b) increasing it slightly to allow for a Capital levy or c) to increase the levy and start incrementally preparing for the future road repairs for the General Fund. She also asked Council to discuss the EDA Levy and policies for use, as well as preparing a clearer format as to how the levied funds are to be used. Discussion followed. There was a consensus among council members to approve the compensation study in the HR budget for $20,000 and decrease the public access check out expense of $28,000 in Telecommunications; to approve the $8,500 increase in Finance to increase the accounting position to full-time and to re-classify a CSO position in the Police Department to part-time evidence technician resulting in a reduction of $24,000. There was also a consensus that a work session was needed to discuss the 2014 proposed fire station, duty crews and compensation changes in the Fire Department and a work session to discuss the Economic Development Authority (EDA) budget and future funding programs. After Council discussed all of the issues that Ms. Linnihan presented, Ms. Linnihan said she would bring back to the August 16th meeting a formal budget based on the discussions by Council. Clay/Heitzman moved to adjourn to Tuesday August 16, 2011 at 7:00 p.m. Motion carried 5-0. The Council meeting ended at 9:32 p.m. Judith S. Cox City Clerk Kim Weckman Recording Secretary (Published in the Shakopee Valley News on Thursday, September 8, 2011; No. 5110) NOTICE OF HEARING ON PROPOSED PUBLIC IMPROVEMENT PROJECT NO. 2011-6 CSAH 69 UTILITY IMPROVEMENTS TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN: Notice is hereby given that the City Council of the City of Shakopee will meet in the Council Chambers of City Hall at 129 South Holmes Street on Tuesday, September 20, 2011 at 7:00 P.M. or thereafter, to consider the making of an improvement by sanitary sewer and watermain and any appurtenant work pursuant to Minnesota Statutes, Sections 429.011 to 429.111.

What moved you on 9/11? “What kind of world have I brought you in to? What will your future be like?” And 10 years later, I still wonder.
The events of 9/11 – three numbers seared into our minds – changed our country and our lives. The tragedies of Sept. 11, 2001, sent the United States to war, dramatically changed air travel, slowed the world’s economy, spawned hate crimes, and put us in mourning for the more than 2,700 persons who died as a result of the terrorist attacks. This newspaper asked southwest area readers to describe how they were changed by 9/11, and here’s what they had to say:
Jan Geis, 73 Chaska
When I see a shooting star When I see a shooting star, I close my eyes and indulge in a little wish, and when I blow the wispy seeds off a dandelion, I stop for a moment and hope for something trivial. And when the sun rises and marks the day as Sept. 11, I bow my head in prayer. But this prayer isn’t about some small thing, not about something trivial. It’s a prayer of sorrow, gratitude, and hope. Deep in my mom’s closet are stacks of old newspapers chronicling the attack. When I see pictures of anguished faces, of America’s twin towers in flames, and read about the raw pain of a nation … grief wells up in me. And yet, I can walk out of the closet and back into a blessed life of normality. I look at the American flag hanging on my wall before I go to sleep. Oh, I feel gratitude. It’s unimaginable that so much hatred could cause the kil ling of thousands: we all live with a bit more fear in our hearts than a decade ago. But we also found courage, solidarity, and a renewed faith in God. Because of this, I continue to hope: never again.

A new era of watchfulness
We have all been changed
Why does it take something like this? My thoughts that morning as I got up were “It’s my birthday today, and I’m meeting my new doctor.” And I was wondering if I would hear from my two oldest sons – my youngest was coming over after work. I poured myself a cup of coffee, turned on the TV, and was forever changed. I was frozen with shock. What was I watching? It was ‘Oh my God, what is happening?’ You forget where you are, and your surroundings. I called someone – don’t remember who. It was days before things started making sense. I was praying and praying for the people and families. For the fi rst three to six months, people I would meet showed kindness to one another. The anger and rudeness was gone. People were very polite. I thought “W hy does it take something like this to change people towards one another?” We never know when God is going to call us.

Patriotism in flight Chaska resident Josh Hed took a photo of a bald eagle in flight just north of St. Bonifacius, and later added the U.S. flag “as a tribute to this great country.” He submitted the photo illustration for the 9/11 essay project. broker, explaining idiosyncrasies of American culture to these newcomers. In discussing 9/11 (part of the citizenship curriculum), it’s often necessary to explain how life changed in America since that fateful day. These discussions have changed me. I realize how fortunate I am to live in the United States. Many students come from war-torn countries where individual rights and security are unknown. Here we view it as our God-given way of life. I am all too aware that there are peace-loving people in every country. Just because a student is from Afghanistan or Iraq or Somalia does not mean that person is a violent terrorist. Many of my students have suffered great tragedy. I am more proud of my American heritage than ever; more conscious of the value of our Constitution and Bill of Rights; more grateful for those who defend our country and our rights. Nine-eleven stirred up all of these values in me. I share them daily with people from around the world.

One mother helping another I was working at home in my office listening to the radio when I heard an airplane had crashed in New York City. I turned on the television and watched in horror, as the events of the day unraveled. No one knew what to expect or who was responsible for the attacks on the twin towers. They issued warnings about large cities and shopping centers, especially the Mall of America. I couldn’t concentrate on work and decided to go to the Eden Prairie shopping center. As I was going up the escalator, a Muslim family, father, mother and two sons began their descent on the down escalator opposite me. The mother wore the traditional Muslim dress with a hijab covering her body, head and face. The mother and youngest son stepped on the escalator and the father followed. The oldest son stopped, terrified of the moving stairs. The father, mother and youngest son went down, as the oldest stood frozen in fright, at the top of the escalator. The mother, young son and father, now at the bottom of the escalator realized what had happened and began shouting in their native tongue
for the son to come down. The boy, about 7, was franticly screaming. I was now at the top of the escalator near the frightened boy, as a crowd of people gathered around him. I’m not sure if I reacted from so many years of being around young children, I certainly didn’t think through my actions. I went to the boy, put one arm around his chest, grabbed the escalator railing with the other hand and nudged him onto the fi rst step. As I held him tight, I felt his little heart beat rapidly. About half way down the father entered the up escalator and both mother and father were shouting at me. Soon we were at the bottom of the escalator. I was greeted with words I could not understand. Our body language said it all. I was one mother helping another mother. On that fateful day of the attack I didn’t see a family from another country or know the attack on the twin towers was Muslim terrorists; I saw a family from another country shopping and a young boy in distress. I still believe we live in the land of opportunity. With the current political climate, the influence of money, and bias in the courts, I am worried our freedom is at risk. My hope is it’s not too late.

Still wondering a decade later The Midwestern skies were a perfect blue on Lake Susan Drive in Chanhassen on Sept. 11, 2001. I had just put my first-grade son on the bus bound for Chanhassen Elementary. I also had a toddler by the hand and a newborn on my hip. I tuned in just as the fi rst airplane hit the twin towers in NYC. I saw the second one slam into the second tower and my mind couldn’t grasp what I was watching. Was this a promo for some extreme action movie??? I sat glued to the TV the entire day. What was happening? Should I pick my son up from school? If the terrorists went after our country’s fi nancial and governmental centers for maximum impact, would they hit the heart of a small town next? My mind was racing and thinking terrible thoughts. It felt as though the sky was a giant door that closed up. All flights were suspended and the only sounds above were military airplanes on patrol. I looked at my two young daughters and thought,
Take your car search for a spin.
I remember the beautiful day and then seeing images of the World Trade Center burning on television. How a small kernel of fear started to take hold knowing my daughter was in training for her first job just three blocks away from that building now on fi re. I wanted to receive as much information as possible, so I turned on the radio as well. That station was speculating that the planes could have been carrying anthrax. Now my fear was starting to take control. What could I do? How could I help? I could only pray that God would keep her safe. She called me late that afternoon and told me of how they felt the impact three blocks away. How her desk slid back and forth when each plane hit the World Trade Center. How over the loudspeaker, they were instructed to remain at their desks. She told her friend, I’m not sure what is happening, but we are leaving now. Once on the sidewalk, there already was a lot of debris flying around. They saw on a storefront window a television viewing exactly what all of us were watching. With no sound they assumed we were under attack. How they ran in terror when others shouted, “The fi rst tower is falling.” When I remember 9/11 these vivid memories return and it feels more recent than 10 years ago. It is important to honor and remember those who lost their lives on that day, and later because of responding to the events of that day. Our history changed with that event. The elusive safe and secure feeling is gone. We have all been changed by that historical day.

A little boy’s hands and heart I was a special-education assistant, walking down the hallway at Five Hawks Elementary with a fi rst-grader. There were whispers from the adults as I passed by the school library. I noticed a small TV and thought it was odd for it to be on. I paused and witnessed the second plane crash through the twin towers as the first one was still on fi re. I took that little boy’s hand and continued to walk to his speech therapy. He was a child with autism. I had no idea what I had just witnessed. I just felt a somber mood within every hallway we walked down. Tears were hidden behind a “normalcy mask,” while phone calls were made by the staff to make sure their families were OK, and parents called to pick up their children. We all upheld our responsibilities for our students, staying calm and continuing the day’s activities. The school day ended with so many unanswered questions. We were all shocked and confused. Understanding the reality of that infamous day, 9/11/2001, I’ve often reflected on holding that little boy’s hand. He couldn’t speak, but somewhere in his innocent heart he felt
The attacks of 10 years ago did change my world view. There is a lot of evil and hate in this world. Ten years ago, we saw the worst of it. There is a lot of good in this world, too. Evil and hate need to be confronted in an effective way. My world view is clearer now in that the good people of this planet can get along. If we can overcome the evil and hateful people and make sure we have honest and effective leaders, the world will be a better place. I think we should vote for the best candidate and be on the watch for evil, hateful and criminal activities and make the call when you see it. I think it’s best if people get involved with making their community a better place, not always expecting someone else to do it. I think it is time to re-evaluate how we do things. An updated and effective business model in most areas would be a good thing. My sense of security is changed some. I hope for the best, but it may be a good idea to be prepared for the worst. It may be the way to go in case of emergencies. My life is changed, as I am on the watch for suspicious activity more now than before 10 years ago. I am also more active in volunteering for my community and charitable organizations.

Nothing could divide nation after attacks “Our greatest glory is not in never failing, but in rising up every time we fail.” — Ralph Waldo Emerson How insightful this American treasure was, how true this quote is. For me 9/11 was more than an inhuman attack on the innocent. It was two of the greatest messages this world would ever know. First: WE ARE NOT ALONE! Days after the attacks newspaper pictures and video clips show the world mourning with us, their outcry of rage not unheard. The news at times paints the picture that the world dislikes the American attitude, yet when we needed our friends and allies the most, they were there for us. Second: WE WILL RISE! Our country did not ask for this and did not deserve this yet when we were attacked without warning or chance to prepare, we triumphed. Americans were helping and sacrificing for fellow Americans. Religion, political differences or race could not divide our country that day ... we were all Americans. I am allowed to write this because of the history that is America. America is the great experiment and is the greatest achievement in history. I am so proud and honored to be part of our American story.

Football team rushes for over 500 yards in easy win BY TODD ABELN firstname.lastname@example.org
Before the season, Shakopee football head coach Jody Stone said this year’s team would win its fair share of games but it wouldn’t be as stylish as last year. If one game is any indication, Stone was wrong. Shakopee rolled up over 500 yards as the Sabers cruised to a 56-6 victory against Fridley last Friday at Shakopee Junior High School Stadium. “I thought we played well,” head coach Jody Stone said. The Sabers did most of the damage on the ground as Shakopee ran the bal l for 518 yards on 60 carries and seven touchdowns. That worked out to an average yards per carry of 8.6. Thirteen different players carried the ball for Shakopee with just about every one of them having success. Anthony Valient led the way with 129 yards on 14 carries and a touchdown.

Josh Botten and Connor Neal each ran for a touchdown in the game. Five different runners fi nished with over 45 yards in the game. Shakopee put the game away early as it scored 14 fi rst-quarter points and then tacked on 28 in the second quarter to go into halftime leading 42-6. The Sabers scored two more touchdowns in the third quar-

ter and then pulled the starters.
CONFERENCE OPENER The Sabers open up Missota Conference play on Friday when they travel to Chanhassen for a 7 p.m. start. Stone thought Chanhassen
would be one of the teams that Shakopee would be battling with for the Missota Conference crown before the season started. They still may but Chanhassen opened the season with a 36-21 loss to Owatonna. The Storm fell behind 15-0 and 29-7 before cutting the lead to 36-21 by the end of the game. If the fi rst game is any indication, Chanhassen will try to throw the ball as it passed the ball 30 times compared to only 24 rushes.
“The challenge will be much different this week with Chan being a school of near equal size,” Stone said. “Chan is much better than last year and I am worried we may not have learned enough versus Fridley. But as long as we take care of the football, tackle well and are mentally ready for a better opponent, I am sure we will have a good chance against Chan.” Shakopee beat Chanhassen twice last year, once in the regular season and once in the playoffs.
SHAKOPEE CROSS COUNTRY
The Shakopee girls cross country team, all 55 members, start the season running together at the Rolf Melby Invitational.
Junior Hauger starts strong, wins opening meet BY TODD ABELN email@example.com
Maria Hauger just put everyone on notice. The Shakopee junior started the 2011 cross country season by putting up a blistering time at the same course she won her second state title almost 10 months ago. Hauger won the season’s opening race — the Rolf Melby Invitational at St. Olaf College in Northfield — in style.
She ran 13 minutes, 56 seconds to win the race by over a minute and a half. That is the fastest 4 kilometer time in the country this year, Hauger’s fi rst time ever breaking 14 minutes, and 18 seconds faster than last year’s state championship run. With Hauger winning the race and three other Saber runners fi nishing in the top 20, Shakopee fi nished in third place as a team. “Overall we did well,” head
coach Mark Neu said. “Our top four runners placed in the top 20 out of 500 [runners].” After Hauger, junior Winona Rachel was third with a time of 15:41. Seventh-grader Tess Misgen ran a 16:16 to finish in 16th place in her fi rst varsity run. “An amazing fi nish for her fi rst race,” Neu said. A l l i Ly nch f i n i she d i n 16:27 which placed her in 20th place. Freshman Maggie Jakubiak
ran a 17:49 to finish in 82nd place. Alyson Walker and Katie Mulcrone fi nished in 90th and 98th place, respectively. Shakopee ended the meet with 122 points to finish behind Roseville’s 77 and East Ridge’s 92 points.
BOYS The boys started their 2011 season by finishing the 26team Rolf Melby Invitational in 21st place. Shakopee fi nished with 490
points. Eastview won with 104. Senior Aaron Wood led the Sabers by fi nishing the race in 18:01, which placed him 42nd. He was followed by freshman Bryon Olfert, who finished in 87th place with a time of 18:52. Kyle Rachel was next for Shakopee in 90th place followed by Nick Wagner in 118th, Jacob Ames in 153rd, Allen Lynch in 154th and Nathan Coleman in 156.
SHAKOPEE GIRLS SWIMMING
Saber’s slow start doesn’t slow down expectations Katie Nadeau returns after swimming at state last year BY TODD ABELN firstname.lastname@example.org
It hasn’t been the start they were hoping for but once things settle down, the Shakopee girls swi m team is expecti ng a strong season. The Sabers have lost their f i rst two meets despite 11 returning swimmers and a couple of newcomers who are expected to help. “We’ve had a slow start but I’m very optimistic about the season,” head coach Kathy Carlson said. “We have a lot of enthusiasm.” Junior Katie Nadeau returns for the Sabers a fter qualifying for the state meet last year in the 200 freestyle and 100 butterfly. Carlson said that Nadeau will most likely compete in those events again this year
but will get moved around throughout the year. “She has put her time in the pool and it’s paying off for her,” Carlson said. “She’s just an allaround swimmer.” Other returning swimmers are seniors Gretta Berens, Sarah Curren, Alex Fernholz, Cassie Lindstrom and Kara Rognrud. Juniors returning are Sara O’Brien, Alex Schmid, Taylor Vaughan and Amber Sinnen. With that many swimmers returning with experience, Carlson said the team should be strong in sprints. “We’ve got some strengths and weaknesses that we have to fill,” Carlson said. “I’m excited to see what we can do this year.’ The Sabers do have eight divers retu r ning but on ly Amber Sinnen has varsity
experience. Carlson said that sophomores Melody Minea and Mariah Lattery and freshmen Tawnie Graff, Somi Yi, Chrissy Yost, Jessie Lindsstrom and Channa Duong will provide depth to the team.
ROUGH START The Sabers have lost its fi rst two meets to Buffalo and Chanhassen. Against the Storm, Shakopee lost 95-83. Nadeau won the 100 fly with a time of 1 minute, 1.05 seconds. Nadeau also finished second in the 200 free. Berens fi nished second in the 100 free with a time of 58.9 seconds. Teammate Rognrud was fourth followed by Mariah Lattery in sixth. In the 500 free, Alexandra Doebel finished second with

Sabers rebound for win Boys soccer team shuts out Tonka BY TODD ABELN email@example.com
The Shakopee boys soccer team rebounded from a disappointing loss with a big win on Tuesday. Shakopee lost 3-2 to Bloomington Kennedy last Thursday but got back on the winning track with a 1-0 victory over Minnetonka on Tuesday night.

Alex Kubitz shields the ball from a defender for the Shakopee boys soccer team. The Shakopee girls tennis team wanted to get the best opponents it could for its 2011 schedule. It was thought that in doing so, it might hurt the team’s record but by the end of the season it would make it a better team. We will see if that turns out to be true. In its last three matches, Shakopee faced three of top-five ranked teams. This past week, Shakopee lost 0-7 to top-ranked Edina and 1-6 to fi fth-ranked Wayzata. Against Wayzata last Thursday, Shakopee’s lone victory came at No. 4 singles when Taylor Koenen won 6-1, 6-3. The Sabers lost three matches in three sets. Dannick Boyogueno lost 6-2, 6-7(2-7) 2-6 at No. 3 singles. In

Carlee Hoppe added 13 kills and Kari Monnens had seven in the victory. Junior Maggie Holcombe had 36 assists in her varsity debut for the Sabers. Busch said Holcombe was fl awless in the win and that

Shakopee had seven aces against only four service errors for a very efficient night.
