The community remembers Denny Hanson

Denny Hanson remembered Door-to-door sales as a caring, fun-loving leader back on in Byron By Nate L angworthy

Denny Hanson was one of a kind. The city council president had a superior knack for handling city business, defusing contentious situations with a self-deprecating sense of humor and common Denny Hanson sense pragmatism. He planned for the future, working with the city’s movers and shakers to create and remake Rochester as it transitioned from a mid-sized community, to a more urban environment. Hanson also valued the everyman, giving each perspective his full attention and talking to high school students and boy scouts during nearly every council meeting. The Rochester community joined Hanson’s family and friends in mourning his unexpected passing due to a brain aneurysm at age 57. “You can’t say Denny Hanson without smiling,” said Rochester Area Chamber of Commerce president John Wade. “He will be sorely missed.” A tireless champion of his hometown, Hanson reveled in his role as a civic leader and was a colorful character during community events. He was a steady proponent of growth and development who presided over Rochester city government during a time of expansion despite national economic downturn. Hanson was particularly inter-

ested in improving the downtown area and led the charge on several game-changing developments in this area during his nearly eight years as council president, including the addition of a University of Minnesota campus and the adoption of the Downtown Master Plan and its accompanying developments. Those who have lived, worked, and visited the downtown area in the last few years have undoubtedly witnessed a marked change. Most recently, President Hanson had been passionate about promoting the expansion of the Mayo Civic Center and extension of the city sales tax. Hanson presided over council meetings with remarkable wit and skill. He allowed every one wishing to comment on an issue the opportunity to do so, listened to each point of view, and offered solutions to situations that his colleagues on the council often followed. “Denny was a friend, colleague, mentor and just a great person to be around. You could always count on something fun happening if Denny was there,” said Randy Staver, fifth ward city council member and interim council president. Mayor Brede shared that Hanson came to his style of openly welcoming all those wishing to comment by way of his distaste of the way a past council president, not immediately preceding him, would shut down hearings quickly. “That really bothered him and it explains why he probably went overboard in the other direction,” said Brede. “We were all thinking ‘come on, we’ve

heard the same thing ten times already’, but Denny wouldn’t have it any other way. Hanson would also take questions on his weekly radio show, and offer up solutions and provided insider information on a wide variety of issues. Hanson was first elected to the council in 1998 to represent the first ward. He was subsequently re-elected and in 2004 made a successful bid for the position of council president, which is a position elected by all Rochester residents. Hanson was re-elected in 2008 and had filed for reelection this November. One of four Mayo High School graduates on the city council, Hanson graduated in 1973 and spent his adult life in Rochester. He worked at Mills Fleet Farm and later at Kruse Lumber before taking on his current job as vice-president of business development at Carpet One. The city council chose fifth ward council member Randy Staver to assume the role of council president on a temporary basis until a permanent replacement is elected and takes office in January. Staver was selected because of many years of experience leading state, county, and city meetings, most recently the city planning and zoning commission. “It’s a hollow victory. No one wants to win this position under these conditions,” said Staver. “But we need to press ahead, that’s what Denny would want for us to do.” See HANSON Page 10 

The Byron City Council reported results from recent correspondence with the producers of Today in America with Terry Bradshaw. The cable television series had expressed interest in filming a feature on life in the town. City Administrator Mary Blair-Hoeft announced, “The producers of the show indicated that we would have to do our own advertising, and that’s not the route we plan taking.” Other nearby towns were also reported to have been contacted with the same offer. A feasibility committee for a possible new pool and sports complex to be constructed in Byron was requested by BlairHoeft. “It has been recommended to the council that we put together a committee and find the answers to the many questions that involve the building and possible funding of this

project.” Further discussion on the topic is slated for future city council meetings as more facts become available. The council approved $250 for the Byron Youth Baseball Association for use towards the building of an equipment shed. The motion made by Jason Snow had been requested by the Byron Park Board on behalf of the baseball association. Council member Bob Meyer added, “They’ve made some nice improvements to the ball park and with this donation we would like to show our appreciation for that.” Rocky Mountain InsulationRochester office Co-Manager Eathan Anderson spoke on behalf of his employer during the meeting’s Public Comments portion. The company had recently been soliciting business in the Byron area by knocking on doors. See BYRON Page 13  Comment on this article at

Dessa of Doomtree performs on the streets of Rochester By R achel H ammer

Well after her European tour, after delivering the commencement address on “failure” at the University of Minnesota, but before she flew to sing in Warsaw, Poland, Dessa performed for Rochesterfest at Thursdays on First and Third. With a degree in philosophy, Dessa, a rapper and spoken word artist, is the CEO of Doomtree, an indie hiphop collective run on


“friendship, music, and money,” in that order. Dessa believes in keeping a low overhead, and being conscious of one’s return on investment—and bearing that in mind, I decided it would be worth it to see her perform live, outside, for free. Rochesterfest, which likely surpassed its estimated attendance of 150,000, enjoyed outstanding weather, and Thursdays on First See DESSA Page 7  Comment on this article at

John Owen Edstrom John Owen Edstrom, 65, of Winona died from lung cancer, unrelated to smoking, on Sunday, June 24, 2012. He died peacefully at his home, surrounded by his family. He was born August 31, 1946, in Winona to Harold Edstrom and Josephine Kjelland Edstrom. He received his primary and secondary education in Winona Public Schools. He began his bachelor’s degree at Lawrence University, then left to explore big-city life and study at Columbia University. After having had his fill of New York, he returned to Winona and met the love of his life when they both had parts in a play at the College of Saint Teresa. John earned his bachelor’s degree at Lawrence, and he and Frances Muraine Bowler married on August 16, 1969. He began his career as an English teacher at Winona Junior High, and left after a year to pursue postgraduate studies at the University of Washington. Again unable to ignore the call of the Hiawatha River Valley, he returned to Winona and found his life’s work when he and his wife began the Winona Shopper in 1971. After surviving the first few very lean years, the publication grew into what is known today as the Winona Post, a thriving newspaper that has won many state and national awards for journalism and art, including many for John’s editorial writing.

Council opts for more time, information on Imagine Slatterly By Nate Langworthy Confusion regarding notice for a public input meeting prompted the city council to continue a hearing on adopting the Imagine Slatterly vision plan into the city’s comprehensive land use plan until fall by a 6-0 vote. This vision plan is a long-range development plan that puts forward a guideline that addresses land use and neighborhood mobility. In 2008 the Rochester Area Foundation received $1.6 million from the city to alleviate the effects of disproportionately high rates of foreclosures in Rochester’s core neighborhoods. The foundation’s First Homes project began rehabbing and reselling distressed homes that had been a blight in the neighborhood. Imagine Kutzky’s vision plan was adopted by the city in 2004, and the foundation

began working with residents of other core neighborhoods, including Slatterly Park, through a similar process of identifying aspects of their neighborhood that could be improved upon and making design support from staff with architectural expertise available in order to render plans to do so. Wayne Flock, president of Slatterly Park Neighbors, stated that the process has been transparent, and that neighbors had been notified through a postcard mailed out to each home in Slatterly Park, in addition to newspaper advertising, emails, and the association’s web site. He addressed the long-term nature of the plan, and clarified that each individual project would be addressed separately at some point in the future. “Either we take advantage of the growth of downtown and become a part of that or we let hodgepodge

development happen and take the result of what happens to us,” said Flock. “What would our neighborhood look like if we had a plan 25 years ago? A lot of it would look much different.” Timothy Macken and Loring Stead spoke in support of the vision plan. Three neighborhood residents stated that they did not receive notice for the final public input meeting held in September of 2011, and took issue with components of the comprehensive neighborhood vision plan. Doris Amundson, who has lived on 6th Street southeast for 43 years, was opposed to a motor vehicle bridge connecting the street with Broadway. She preferred a bridge that would accommodate only bicycles and pedestrians. Amundson stated that she did not receive notice of the September meeting. Neighborhood resident Dana Inman also stated that he did not receive notice and objected to the plan. “I’m going to have a drag strip through there (a block from his home) and I’m not happy with that. I don’t belong to the neighborhood association and I didn’t know anything about this. I’m not in favor of any of this,” he said. Council member Ed Hruska clarified that adopting the vision

plan did not mean adopting any individual components that it contains. “There could be a lot cleared up, a lot of misconceptions a lot of concerns,” said council member Mark Bilderback, who lives in the Slatterly Park neighborhood, regarding his support for another neighborhood meeting. “Our neighborhood has come a long way but I think it’s important that we do have clear communication.” “We want to be sure that the disagreements are based on facts,” said council member Bruce Snyder. “Nothing’s going to change in the next six months anyway.”

Joshua Ottman Joshua Paul Ottman, age 36, of Oronoco passed away unexpectedly June 30, 2012, from complications of Type 1 Diabetes. Joshua was born September 7, 1975, in Rochester to John and Mary (Walker) Ottman. Joshua worked with Joshua Ottman his brother at Ottman Excavating, Inc. He loved to be outdoors, hunting morel mushrooms in the spring, fishing and hunting, and enjoyed riding and racing ATVs. He was a true kid at heart and enjoyed having fun. His smile would brighten even the worst of days. He took life as it came to him with a positive attitude and a bright smile. He was a hard worker and was always there to help. He loved animals- especially his longtime canine companion Frisbee who was usually at his side. He lived his short life to the fullest, always caring for others with kindness in a true spirit of happiness. Joshua is survived by his father, John Ottman of Rochester; his mother, Mary Ottman of Oronoco; his brother, Jason (Sara) Ottman of Rochester; his sister, Jennifer (Brad) Murphy of St. Charles; his three nephews, Jack, Jonah, and Westin; and as well as both grandmothers, Wilma Walker of Rochester and Jeanne Bergan of Wabasha. He was preceded in death by his grandfathers. A Funeral Mass was held Tuesday, July 3, 2012, at Pax Christi Catholic Church. Burial followed in Oronoco Cemetery. “Nothing really good happens without a vision,” council member Michael Wojcik said, expressing his support for neighborhood visioning efforts. Wojcik recounted Flock’s efforts about a decade ago to form the Rochester Downtown Alliance and Thursdays on First. “There wasn’t much happening the first few years, it wasn’t well attended and it didn’t go anywhere. But there was a vision there and I think the results are pretty well in on that one. “When I see plans like this, I’m reminded that it’s a lot easier to tear something down than to build something up,” he said. Imagine Slatterly will hold another public input meeting on a date to be announced in early fall.

C ommentary Eyota’s transportation grant By Al Schumann The city of Eyota has received a Grant of $344,000 from the Minn. Dept. of transportation to create safe routes to School for their students. The City will add sidewalks and Bike paths. Having developed a major part of Al Schumann the city, I won-

dered about the need. Eyota has one of the best streets in the area for both auto and bike paths. When we were developing, we were required to put in paved roads for the use of the autos and bikes. Sidewalks are placed on one side of any heavily traveled streets. We did not place sidewalks in the strictly residential streets for a very good reason. The streets are always plowed first in the winter and sidewalks are the homeowner’s problem. Many older people find it impossible to shovel

their walks, and in most families both parents have to go to work before they have a chance to shovel their sidewalks. If you have a sidewalk and don’t get it shoveled, you could be sued or penalized. As far as I know, there have been no accidents that would indicate that we have unsafe streets in Eyota. But the article goes on to indicate that the grant is a federallyfunded program for transportation enhancement. The article also points out that Winona got $600,000 to rehab owner-occupied homes and Lanesboro got $449,000 for housing and commercial build-

ings. The Federal government, which borrows over 40 percent of its money abroad, is giving Minnesota over $16,850,000 under this program. Minnesota has about two percent of the nation’s population, and if the rest of the nation gets the same proportion of free money, it becomes mind-boggling. Let’s also remember there is no such thing as free money. Anyone selling a home after this year will have to pay 3.8 percent of the sale price to the Federal government. Your electricity has already gone up because the tax has already been applied. And you are going to have

to pay taxes on your gas, autos, crutches, wheelchairs---everything is going to be taxed to pay for an edict from Washington that says that people should walk more and ride their bicycles to school. They can do it now without spending one dollar of our tax money. One of the greatest problems that face any legislator is being able to say “No”…there are always people who want more from their government. My family grew up during the depression years when Mother said “No” quite often. We See SCHUMANN Page 5 

simply understood that if we wanted something, we had to work for it. Grants are not free, someone has to pay. Should some faceless individual in far off Washington decide that the people of Eyota need to shovel their walks, or use the bicycle instead of the car to go to work? I should be free to choose what I want or need. Let the Federal Government take care of national defense, the interstate roads and other things that cross state lines. Let the states take care of their own people with needs, education etc. Let our local communities decide how many sidewalks we need. This thing is just an election ploy that will end when the election is over. I’m ashamed to think that some people will fall for it. It did not work in the ‘30s and it won’t work now.

By Yvonne Nyenhuis In my twenties, I worked as an Embroidery Designer in Philadelphia. My dear friend and mentor, Ronald Levy, and I frequently had lunch together in Fairmont Park. One day we were sitting in the sun enjoying our corned beef sandwiches and pickles, when a flock of birds settled in front of us pecking at chunks of dry rolls that had been thrown on the ground. Out of nowhere a witch-like figure, scrawny Yvonne and bent over, Nyenhuis covered in black, emerged. She pulled a crumpled brown paper bag from the folds of her garments, scooped the rolls into her bag, and swiftly disappeared. No one should have to take dry chunks of bread from the birds in order to survive! Fast-forward to nineteen-sixtyseven. I’m married, living in an

work to suppress the vote, threatening the survival of our Democracy! In the pursuit of “smaller government,” Republicans have made huge cuts in money allocated to States to pay salaries for public workers. We NEED police, firefighters and teachers. If they are hired, they will be able to afford to buy houses and cars. They will increase the need for goods and services in the private sector. Banks will lend to new businesses because a market is created. They will pay taxes, increasing government revenues, which will allow us to start paying off the deficit. When we provide upward mobility for the poor and the middle class, we all benefit, including the rich! On a trip to England I stood with a friend on the shore of a harbor looking over the town of Wivenhoe. I was surprised that there was no water. The boats were sitting moored to the muddy bottom. It was explained to me that twice a day there was a tide of water pouring in from the North Sea: that “The Rising Tide Raised All Boats!”

apartment in Minneapolis with my husband, Glenn, and our eighteenmonth-old son, Gordon. Once a week I’d pile our laundry into the stroller and taking Gordon’s hand, walk to the Laundromat on Hennepin Avenue. One morning we walked over the Hennepin Bridge. I found myself looking down to the railroad tracks below where there was a large cement platform. I wondered at first what all the people were doing. They huddled in twos and threes. Some walked aimlessly in the area. They were shabbily dressed, with slumped shoulders looking down at the ground. Then it hit me. These people are homeless! The awful reality swept over me. When you don’t have a job there is no place to go. When night comes, where do you sleep? What do you eat? For forty years the middle class has been losing ground and poverty has increased. The “poor” did not cause the “recession,” yet Republicans in Congress tell us that “entitlements” are the prob-

lem. We must cut food stamps, school lunches, Head Start and Planned Parenthood. Meanwhile they insist we should continue subsidies to Corporations and tax cuts for the rich. It is not “Big Government” we need to fear. Corporations have taken over our lives! The drive to “repeal Obama Care” has been carefully orchestrated by Health Insurance companies. The Media is fed by a spring of lies and misinformation. Health Care is a business motivated by profit. Drug companies’ main objective is not “healing the sick,” it is selling drugs! Monsanto and Cargill engineer our food for “appearance and durability.” We are left to wonder how much nutrition is in the food we eat. Corporations put profit ahead of the health and welfare of workers and desecrate the environment. (We must get rid of the E.P.A. All those silly regulations are cutting into our profits. We must defund OSHA. Safety of workers? Not our responsibility!) They have money and influence but we have “the vote.” Presently sinister forces are at

Community members remember Denny Hanson “Denny and I had a great relationship, working closely together for 13 years. It was just a slap in the face to lose him in such a sudden way. He had this unique ability to facilitate discussion and keep matters on an even keel. His presence and personality will be missed tremendously.” – city attorney Terry Adkins. “Denny was not afraid to admit that he did not know all the answer but he also was not afraid to get input from others, to try and find the best solution possible. Denny always kept the city first. Denny was a mentor to me and all on the council. I spent many of days, evenings speaking with Denny about city issues. It was

always enjoyable to be with Denny on trips long or short. It could be a drive to St. Paul or a trip to the National League of Cities regardless the trip was educational and fun. You knew he was going to pick your brain and share some of his own thoughts. You also knew he was going to call you a knothead and laugh and share stories of the past.” – Mark Bilderback, Ward 4 city council member. “Denny, you simply had that special gift that few have. And, you shared it with all of us. We owe you and your dear family so very much for the personal time you gave to us all to make our community a better place. You voluntarily put yourself on the hot-seat, you stood tall for

your beliefs, you brought strong leadership and you always came out smiling. Much respect, my friend. We will miss you very much.” Former county sheriff Steve Borchard on Hanson’s Facebook page. “Denny was a great friend, just a great guy. He liked to party and create joy, but he was also very smart. He knew how to interact with people in that infectious sort of a way that you really couldn’t not like him. Sometimes in the heat of the battle he’d make some remark, probably about himself, that would really diffuse the situation.” – Mayor Ardell Brede. “I first knew Denny as a friend and neighbor. He was a caring and supportive person. After I had been

on the council for a couple of years, Denny came up to me and said he was thinking about running. I said “You? On the city council?” I think the last 14 years have shown that it was a great fit for him and the city. He cared about every person and every situation. Sometimes I’d get impatient when he’d take so much time to hear someone out but that just goes to show that he did genuinely care about what everyone had to say. Denny’s a person you’ll never replace.” – Ed Hruska, Ward 1 city council member “We are all so saddened by the loss of our good friend, leader, activist, and champion for all the people of Rochester, Denny Hanson. Denny truly was an advocate

for the City and believed that he/we could move mountains by carrying away small stones and together, we would accomplish many goals. He acknowledged that we all are intrinsically entwined and by working together with respect and perseverance, we would accomplish a plethora of goodness that would help keep our City strong. He tackled the duties as City Council President with gentle passion (sometimes) but always with an unyielding quest to do the right thing. I will miss Denny’s laughter, bad jokes, great smile and funloving ways. I will sorely miss my friend and mentor and extend my deepest sympathy to his lovely wife Linda, his six children, six grandchildren and all members of the See REMEMBER Page 9 

Condemnation an option for Shady lakebed By Nate Langworthy Before Lake Shady can undergo a transformation into a wetland recreational area, a web of potential property rights claims to the lake bed needs to be untangled. Senior assistant county attorney Tom Canan is working to sort out the claims, but because of the complicated nature of the situation, he asked for and received permission from the county board of commissioners to pursue condemnation on the lakebed properties. After the flood in the fall of 2010 destroyed the dam, the board decided not to replace it and instead repurpose the area. Olmsted County would like to begin removing remnants of the dam in January, and an ease-

ment should allow this to happen without complications. The area near the dam is planned to be the launching point for canoers and kayakers. With deeds to many areas of the lakebed overlapping one another and many of the property owners no longer living, clarifying claims to the lakebed has been a confusing process. The state of Minnesota has a claim to the entire lakebed, though the Allis family appears to have property rights to a substantial portion of the lakebed as well. A handful of other property owners have claims to the lakebed adjacent to their property. The city of Oronoco and Olmsted County also appear to have some property rights on the lakebed.

ThuR-Sun, July 12-15Th

1/2 Off

Summer Clearance Sale!

Canan said that some offers have been made, based on figures from the county assessors office, to living property owners with a claim to the lakebed in order to avoid condemnation of their property. The county has reached agreement with three property owners, but “Its going to require sorting out in court,” said Canan. “We’re going to continue to negotiate with property owners to the extent that they exist.” Appraisals will be sent out to property owners 60 days before condemnation proceedings begin. Once the condemnation proceedings begin, property owners will have 90 days to respond and negotiate for what they feel the property is worth. If they do not respond, an amount determined by the county appraiser’s office will be deposited with the court. Funds to pay for the land purchase will come from DNR money dedicated to renovating the area.

Hanson family. I can hear Denny saying, “don’t dwell, get ‘er done.” – Sandra Means, Ward 6 city council member. “Denny Hanson was a dear friend of many and the consummate friend of all of the citizens of the City of Rochester. He believed in and loved the people of our city and wanted more than anything to serve them well as City Council President. It was my great pleasure to serve as a city councilmember with Denny and to continue to work with him as a state senator on legislative matters important to our city.  Our community won’t be the same without Denny but his love for our city and the legacy he leaves of strong and inspired leadership will live on and positively influence

the future of Rochester for a very long time.” – Senator David Senjem. “Denny was first and foremost a man that loved his family and Rochester. He would do whatever it took to make sure that the right thing was done, and he would have fun doing it! While much has been made of Denny’s capacity for fun, he also knew when it was time to be serious and he would figure out how to resolve the situation in the best way.   He was much smarter that many people gave him credit for.” – Bruce Snyder, Ward 3 city council member. “In my relatively short time on the Council, Denny stressed one thing over and over.   He told me that while it is good to think things through and be thorough, at the end of the day we need to do what’s See REMEMBER Page 10 

right for the people and the community. While we certainly mourn the loss of our colleague and friend, I believe we can also take inspiration in how he led and how he treated others.  Denny would want us to carry on and continue making Rochester the best place to live.” – Randy Staver, Ward 5 city council member. “Denny understood the balance between government and the private sector and he really believed that if you could get people together and paid attention to both you could come out with the best solution. When we talked broadly about creating ten thousand jobs in the next ten years, Denny said a number of times that we have to pay attention to the guys in pickup trucks that want to take care of their families and buy things when they’re working. He also believed that if he could like someone, he could understand them, and he could seek a solution to just about anything that was out there. While Denny sought consensus he was never afraid to take on difficult issues. As we joined together to develop projects and initiatives that would position us for continued growth, Denny often spoke privately and publicly about the downtown development. He was passionate about that, he held that downtown dear. He loved the energy of our community, he loved the energy of its people, and the people loved him. The Hanson doctrine is alive and well in all of us.” – John Wade President of the Rochester Area Chamber of Com-

merce. “Safe journey, my friend, and thank you for all that you did for so many. You will be missed and we are all greatly saddened by your too-soon departure.” - Development task force chair Jerry Williams on Hanson’s Facebook page. “It was always fun to be around Denny, he was an incredibly nice guy. He ran meetings with incredible skill, but kept things fun, and I enjoyed playing off him. I think Denny will be looking down on us and laughing a little bit during city meetings as we attempt to run them as smoothly as he did. I imagine that for Denny the fun started at about age 12 and lasted right up until he took his last breath. We are all incredibly saddened by his loss.” – Michael Wojcik, Ward 2 city council member. A sampling of comments from Denny’s Facebook page: • While driving downtown today, it just didn’t feel the same. Well done Mr. Hanson. • Denny, missin you! Thank you for everything you did for our beautiful city and THANK YOU for reminding me how to have FUN in life! Hugs to you! • Denny, you sure are one of a kind! So blessed to have shared memories with you. May you rest amongst the angels! You will be greatly missed. Lots of love.. • Denny, its time to celebrate your life and thank you for all you are, for all you did and for all you gave to your community. Peace my friend! • Denny you made the world a better place. See REMEMBER Page 11 

A plea for a tree By Iris Clark Neumann When building a new house, the most important landscaping element to plant is a tree. Shrubbery landscaped and mulched foundation plantings are Iris Clark fine, but they Neumann will never add as much value to your home or protection as a tree will. I have a maple with dark green leaves in my front yard. Because I live in a cul-de-sac, the pie-shaped nature of the lot allows only enough space for this single tree in the front yard. The backyard is another story. (It is a jungle of pines, spruces, crab apples, white poplar and a willow.) My maple has never rewarded me with beautiful fall color. The leaves stay green until late in the color season. Then they suddenly turn brownish and then fall off into big piles. However, after our long lingering fall last year they turned a yellowish hue. I love this tree. It provides shade in the front of my house and it

has grown to a substantial size in a decade in a half, so that it nearly covers the front of my house. Unlike most other homeowners, I use part of my front yard as a living space. There is a curved foot and a half foot high planter that borders a patio area, which is adjoined by a front yard deck. My husband and I enjoy sitting on this deck in the evenings. He especially loves this space on a Friday, his favorite night of the week. The tree shelters the view of our outdoor living space from the outside world and gives the feeling of separation from the wide expanse of asphalt in our cul-de-sac. But there is streetlight located on the far corner of our driveway. This beacon has been an irritation for years in the otherwise joyous time relaxing on our front deck in the dark. We have discussed how some day a branch from the tree might cover the light and we’d visually measure how long it could take. In the mean time, he would threaten sabotaging the light. This summer a branch finally reached out far enough to filter the light’s intruding rays. Yes! It is tempting when choosing a tree for one’s front yard to choose

something cutesy like a cluster of white or river birches or a variegated or purple maple. Personally, I would never choose such a tree. For one reason, birches have a shorter life span than an elm, a linden, an oak or a thornless honeysuckle tree. Choose something that will grow on and on and become a strong force in your front yard. Consider planting a Kentucky coffeetree— it grows slowly at first, but in the end becomes a very grand tree. I remember the two beautiful Ohio buckeyes that were planted in my grandparents’ front yard. There’s an older two-story house in my town that is framed by grand towering black walnut trees. Although I have a maple, if I was choosing today I would stay away from a maple as in recent years, they have not proven to be a tree with longevity. Too many maples have been planted and they form a heavy percentage of trees planted in towns. Some trees should never be planted in a front yard or as boulevard trees. Pines, spruces and weeping willows do not belong in the limited space of a city front yard. I miss the beauty of the grand elms arching over streets and shading both the asphalt and those walking underneath on sidewalks. Once I had a summer job where I mapped and counted all the elms on the Minneapolis campus of the University of Minnesota. The planning department expected

Oil & Filter Change


Last week I had the oil changed in my car at Service on 2nd Street and I had a great experience. The staff there is most helpful in getting things started and explaining along the way. Besides that the technicians gave me some very helpful advice. One of the great things is how positive these employees are about working for Service on Second. I have been telling my friends about the great service at this location and the secret is out. Great employees...great service.

By Nate Langworthy A legal challenge posed by Rochester City Lines (RCL) in an attempt to stop First Transit from beginning service as the city’s public bus transit provider, failed in district court, as Olmsted District Court Judge Joseph Chase determined that the routes and schedules were not proprietary information and that the bidding process was not so flawed as to invalidate First Transit as the contract recipient. “I am not persuaded of any likelihood that RCL has been denied Due Process in the City’s actions,” Olmsted District Court Judge Joseph Chase wrote. “I find nothing improper about the City’s handling of the situation RCL characterizes as an ‘organizational conflict of interest’.” RCL, which for 46 years had operated buses run by the city and typically planned routes and schedules in coordination with city public works

Their parents are Tom and Kari Podenski, Rochester, MN and Carl Sinderbrand and Maryann Sumi of Madison, WI. Sarah and Jake met while working together at Working America during the 2008 election.

staff, failed to procure a competitive bid this past winter. The bid was made necessary by the Federal Transit Administration condition that the transit operator be vetted through a bid process in order for the city to continue to receive Federal subsidies for bus transit. State and Federal subsidies cover the vast majority of the cost to operate the city’s bus transit. “City Lines never had a leg to stand on and the judge ruled that they didn’t have a leg to stand on,” said city council member Michael Wojcik, who had been individually named in a defamation lawsuit brought by RCL, stemming from statements made on his blog and through social media. “I hope we’re getting to the end of this, the taxpayers are losing a fortune on this baseless case,” he said. Judge Chase did agree with RCL on one point; that they should be allowed to keep the schedule that they had been running. RCL forfeited rights to this when they did not run a fleet of buses and eventually suspended operations on July 2nd. City Lines general manager Dan Holter blamed the city for the company’s inability to continue to operate. “We have been hobbled and disadvantaged by the city. We will operate to the best of our ability, limited by the loss of pass-through federal and

state subsidies and the raiding of our workforce,” Holter said in a statement. In addition, Holter maintains that the city raided tickets, passes, and schedules during an audit. Holter indicated that the suspension of service was temporary in a later statement. Rochester City Lines continues to operate intercity commuter buses and coach buses through its affiliate, Heartland Tours. Meanwhile, the transition to Rochester Public Transit, operated by First Transit, went forward with minimal confusion. Most of the bus drivers and mechanics had been employed by Rochester City Lines. Rochester Public Transit general manager Randy Huston, who had been operations manager at RCL up until this winter, said that the buses were operating as planned throughout the first week. “We had a few new facility hiccups on Monday, but other than that everything is going very smoothly. We will continue to offer improved bus service.” Rochester Public Transit will honor transfers from commuter buses at least until the end of the year. In-city public transportation will have different contact information. The phone number is now 328RIDE and the website is www.

teach us about pruning elms. Trees are said to add 15 percent to a home’s value. Underground tree roots are like a sponge and can protect a home from storm water. In a time when we are more concerned about harm from the sun’s rays, shade from trees protects us. Trees are like outdoor air condi-

tioners, cooling and filtering pollutants from the air. Homes with trees protecting them from the sun on the east, south and west find their indoor air conditioning bills much lower. A shaded asphalt roadway or driveway lasts longer. Thus I wonder why more don’t invest in at least a single tree for
