Lourdes High School getting closer to goal By Jade Wangen

Lourdes High School has been at its present location in downtown Rochester since 1941. As a part of Rochester Catholic Schools, it has grown and expanded over the years.

About ten years ago, a decision needed to be made whether to renovate and expand the old school or build another school in a new location. “We figured out that no matter what we did the cost was going to be the same,” said Barb DeCramer, Development

Associate for Rochester Catholic Schools. “The decision was made to move to a new site. We looked at a lot of property around Rochester, and that’s when Jack Remick donated the land.” Jack and Mary Ann Remick, who own the Rochester Athletic

Club, gave 25 acres of land to Lourdes as a gift. The land is located at Valleyhigh Drive and 19th Street in northwest Rochester. It is adjacent to the Rochester Athletic Club, and the Cascade Meadow Wetland and Science Center. Remick’s wife and children are graduates of Lourdes High School. According to DeCramer, the school set a goal of raising $15 million to put toward the project. So far, they have raised $12.2 million. There is a long list of people who have generously donated money for the project of building a brand new school. The entire cost of the project is estimated at $35 million. Financing is in place for the remaining amount. DeCramer stated the construction would begin once the goal is reached. “We are hoping to have groundbreaking yet this fall,” shared DeCramer. “It’s about a two-year project. We are hoping for fall of 2013 to have students in the

Council member Ed Hruska, a critic of the tree ordinance who was not in attendance at the meeting, asked two weeks ago that the issue be reconsidered as it pertains to commercial development. A motion to this effect passed 5-2 with Council members Michael Wojcik and Sandra Means voting in dissent. The ordinance requires that new commercial developments plant boulevard trees every 35 feet along the perimeter of the site. Zietlow’s concern, that may See ROCHESTER Page 8 

DeCramer is expecting a bump in enrollment when the new school is opened. “It’s just wonderful,” said DeCramer. “The design of the new building brings in architecture and look of the high school in town. We people with sentimental ties to it.” The location is ideal for students to take advantage of the educational opportunities nearby. The Cascade Meadow Wetlands Center is an 80-acre science center that educates students and the public about managing wetlands. There was an open house in June for the center, which is also owned by Remick. “It’s an amazing facility Jack built for Rochester, and for Olmsted County,” said DeCramer. See LOURDES Page 7 

Editorial Cartoon

ber 25, 2010, “The Dayton Daily News lost about 8.4 percent of its circulation in the past year.” In this same article, the Springfield News-Sun was cited with a “circulation decrease of about 10 percent, with 19,712 weekday subscribers compared with 21,912 a year ago.” Daily newspapers large and small continue to see a significant decline for a variety of reasons, year after year. Yes, the Internet has changed the momentum of the daily newspaper industry, which pains me to say. Newspapers have been in my blood since I started delivering them at the age of 10. That was the first job I ever had, which taught me so many valuable lessons pertaining to work ethic and customer relations. With all of this said, I have seen the pendulum swing in a completely different direction I could have never imagined. The Internet has become so liberal with the meaning of “free,” that consumers of information continually pose the question: why buy the cow when I can get the news for free? Certainly, many paid circulation newspapers have tried various methods of controlling print and online collaborations, almost to their own detriment -- with many failed attempts at “site lock downs.” While this isn’t something usually at the forefront of my cerebral cortex, recent conversations with readers and advertisers have prompted me to consider how the Olmsted County Journal plays into the overall picture of the newspaper industry. There isn’t a day that doesn’t go by without me receiving a phone call or e-mail from a reader of this 62,000 circulation weekly news-

Some of the people are calling me with positive feedback on the articles appearing in that particular issue of the Olmsted County Journal, and others are expressing their opinion about a “letter to the editor” they saw in the Commentary section. And, then there are the advertisers. Just a couple weeks ago, a Rochester liquor store ran an advertisement that generated one heck of a response. They sold over 40 cases of wine from that one advertisement. And, I hear this quite a bit.

She feels the windows will honor the sisters of St. Francis, who had a part in the founding of Rochester Catholic Schools. “It’s satisfying to honor that relationship,” she said. Stained glass windows from the current library at Lourdes will also be moved to the new building. As for the downtown location, two blocks of land have been sold to Mayo Clinic, which has other property adjacent to that.

Call for details. the development, as West Circle Drive is a County highway. Planning staff had heard a variety of answers on the question, but felt that the County’s policy, which does not allow for trees on the highway, would likely follow MNDOT’s agreement with the city to allow trees on the outside of a “reaction area” that would be determined by the road’s speed limit. This would probably put boulevard trees in the inside of bike paths on West Circle Drive. The tree ordinance was adopted for a myriad of health and quality of life improvement reasons. As Rochester has grown in past decades, trees have not been planted to go with the developments. Among other reasons, trees improve storm water filtration and control, remove toxins from the air that people would otherwise breathe in, and reduce the “heat island” effect, in which areas which exposed concrete and asphalt have significantly increased air temperatures. Trees also save the City cost through less damage to roadways, and make the city more conducive to bicycle and pedestrian traffic. Wojcik, a proponent of the tree ordinance, asked for evidence that would contradict studies that the City has received in planning the ordinance that trees are beneficial to business. “We wouldn’t spend the money, and that’s 100 percent,” Zietlow replied. Most Council members stated their sentiment that Kwik Trip was good for Rochester’s business community and that they would like to see the project move forward, however they also expressed support for the tree ordinance. Some Council members were concerned about lost opportunities to grow Rochester’s economy and raise City revenue. “The trees are a good thing,” said Council president Dennis Hanson. “I’m also concerned that we’re going to let a couple of highprofile businesses go away.” Wojcik expressed several times that boulevard trees are in the public right of way, that the ordinance is in the public interest, and demanded a meeting to gather input from the public before giving away this asset. “We’re a great community, people are here by choice, they’re not here because we’re the cheapest place to do business or have low standards,” said Wojcik. “I think it’s OK for us to have high standards.” The issue was tabled until the July 18th Council meeting and

We know that sometimes life deals us a bum rap, situations can occur that we have little or no control over financially. In today’s ever-changing economic cycle, job challenges arise that may have caused financial hardships or unexpected medical emergencies may have dealt an unfair blow. As much as we try, sometimes it is very difficult to rebound from unexpected or outof-control finances without help or understanding from some outside source. We want that opportunity to help. Re-establishing credit can be as important as buying a car. We have lenders working right now to finalize loans. Let’s see how this program works: From the start, our customers are under no obligation to enter this program, they can say no at any time. This program is designed to reestablish their credit in as short a period of time as possible. Other dealerships offer “Buy Here - Pay Here” operations. Generally, you buy a vehicle they want to get rid of, and no credit is established since they do not report to the credit bureau (unless payments are not made) and there are no warranties or guarantees. If credit is established, it’s only with

them so people are trapped inside their spiral of driving less than desirable vehicles and never improving their credit situation, which is the primary mission in this venture. At Zumbrota Ford, we offer all of our customers the opportunity to drive the vehicle that is right for them. We only use lenders that help re-establish your credit on 1998 and newer models, that meet the conditioning and mileage criteria of the lenders. Many of these vehicles have remaining factory warranties and are eligible for an extended service contract. After paying on this vehicle, credit will be reestablished, provided payments have been maintained current on it and all your other credit obligations. Do you have: 1. A full-time job? 2. $1,300 gross monthly income? 3. Stable residence? 4. Down payment or trade? 5. Past credit problems with a drive to re-establsh credit? If so, we would like the opportunity to help you.

Permit for dog kennel under consideration in Dover By Tracy Ebmeyer Dover resident Tom Hagan approached the city council about obtaining a permit to build a dog kennel within city limits at last Thursday’s city council meeting. Hagan and his son professionally train hunting dogs and hope to grow the business. Hagan would like to add on to an existing building where thirty dogs could be

kenneled at one time. Hagan said that the business could help the city of Dover by drawing in revenue from neighboring communities. City officials are concerned about noise, animal waste, and the zoning ordinance that is in place not allowing a kennel within a commercial district. Hiawatha Broadband Communications is one step closer

to coming to Dover. Dover must advertise the desire to open a contract for a new franchise agreement and hold a public hearing allowing the people of Dover to discuss the possibility of HBC coming to city. That meeting is scheduled for August 4th, and anyone is invited to attend. Dover received their annual audit report which will be delivered to the state. The city has a total fund balance of $593,000. City officials talked about moving the ball diamonds one hundred feet to the south in the near future. This move would increase diamond sizes substantially. Officials discussed hiring engineers to develop the project. The back-up pump for the city well was pulled and needs to be replaced. The city decided to replace the pump with a submersible pump which will cost the city nearly $10,000. The pump that failed was put into service fourteen years ago.
