Rain drives graduation into gym Family, friends of 440 students attend ceremony by Laura Adelmann THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

ROSEMOUNT

Rain drove Rosemount High School’s graduation ceremonies indoors but didn’t dampen spirits as 440 seniors graduated Saturday, June 5. Faculty speaker Kurt Bills and senior class speaker Courtney Marti jointly gave a speech that included advice to be a light in the dark world, pursue excellence, live with integrity and make wise financial decisions. Rosemount High School choir conductor Steve Albaugh led the choir in two stirring selections, “If You’re Out There” and the traditional “Irish Blessing.” The top 10 honor students were recognized before diplomas were presented: Jennifer Saunders, Emily Holz, Micaella Petrich, Jared Sipe, Katie Morris, Tim Bell, Austin Phillips, Salutatorian Karen Lamb and Valedictorians Matt Quan and Elliot Bell. After jubilantly throwing their hats in the air, the newest Rosemount alumni celebrated with family and friends before attending their all-night party.

Rosemount business fined for accident that killed two workers CF Industries did not contest citations by Laura Adelmann THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

A Rosemount fertilizer plant was one of two businesses fined by the Minnesota Occupational Health and Safety Administration after an investigation into a toxic ammonia leak in November that killed two truck drivers.

CF Industries, a fertilizer plant, was fined $1,400 for failing to monthly inspect and ensure its respirators functioned properly. The trucking company, High Pressure Transports of Oklahoma, was fined $25,000 for not providing a safe work environment. Both are considered se-

rious violations of safety standards, and neither company contested the citations. The accident killed Robert Shue, 31, and 56-yearold Roy Taylor, both of Oklahoma, when poisonous vapors were released after a piping connection transferring the ammonia onto the truck failed. Shue died immediately and Taylor succumbed two

weeks later in the hospital. Rosemount Police Officer Scott Sandell and Dakota County Sheriff’s Deputy Matt Schuster were also injured while trying to help the truckers. According to CF Industries’ website, anhydrous ammonia requires special equipment and technology to transport, store and ap-

ply. The company website states that the chemical is produced in some capacity by all of CF Industries’ manufacturing plants. It also states CF Industries has one of the best safety performance records in the chemical industry, noting that four of its facilities have surpassed the 40year mark without a single

lost-time accident. The website states, “CF Industries is committed to assuring that its employees go home every day the same way they came to work that morning: safe and healthy.” In 2003, OSHA gave the company’s Glenwood plant a Safety and Health award.

IN BRIEF The Rosemount High School Performing Arts Legacy Gala will be at 7 p.m. Friday, June 18, in the school’s Performing Arts Center. Tickets are $10 and went on sale to the general public Thursday, June 3, through the RHS school website at www.district196.org/ rhs/theaterarts, or by calling the box office at (651) 423–7540. To watch an interview with Steve Boehlke and Steve Albaugh, go online at www. ThisweekLive.com and click on More Videos under the video player on the main page.

APPLE VALLEY will include performances by grade school and high school students along with long since graduated performers. Some of the contributors to the gala will be some of Boehlke’s former students who are part of the Minnesota Valley Men’s Chorale, a group Boehlke organized in 2003 and with which he now serves as artistic director. “Some of them still pull the same things as adults that they did as freshmen,� said Boehlke, who said onethird of the choir is comprised of Rosemount graduates. Boehlke said he was humbled and honored to receive the award and attributed his success to the many students and cohorts he has worked with through the years. “We had energy and passion and it was fun,� he said. “It was a great ride all the way through.� Boehlke said he appreciated the school and district administrators who allowed the performing arts department at Rosemount the freedom to experiment.

The results were innovative programs like the Madrigal Dinner shows, which were popular with both students and the community. While staging productions was rewarding, it was the day-to-day interaction with students that generated the most satisfaction for Boehlke. “It is a real sense of satisfaction that it was not necessarily that you did See Boehlke, 5A

more than a fundraiser – it helps spread encouragement for those who’ve endured or are currently battling cancer. “It’s important for cancer survivors to have that encouragement,� she said. The relay raises money through team commitment fees and individual donation goals secured from family, friends, companies or corporations. People can form teams and register online at www.relayforlife.org/ applevalleymn. Relay For Life grew from an idea of Dr. Gordon Klatt, who in 1985 ran and walked for 24 hours on a track in Tacoma, Wash., traveling about 81 miles and raising $27,000 for the American Cancer Society. From there, Relay For Life was born and is now held nationwide. The money raised helps support American Cancer Society programs in research, education, advocacy and service – locally, statewide and nationally. During the Apple Valley relay, there will be music, food, fun, entertainment and activities while participants build camaraderie with fellow teammates. A “tent city� is created around the track where team members rest and regroup between walking and running sessions. At the start of the relay, cancer survivors from around the community are

invited to take a victory lap and be cheered on by fellow participants. A dinner for survivors, catered by Rascals Bar and Grill, will be held prior to the relay inside the high school at 5 p.m. A candlelight ceremony at dusk will pay tribute to those who have been affected by cancer. Luminaria can be purchased in honor of those who have survived their battles with cancer, for those still fighting, and in memory of those who have lost their battles to the disease. The luminaria – white paper bags with sand and candles inside – will be laid out around the track.

about three hours, is more enjoyable, he said. And if some riders are not able to schedule time for the full ride, there is usually a group of riders who turn around and go back at the halfway point. Johnson began racing in 1974, a year after he had hopped on a friendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bike on a whim and took it for spin. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I fell in love with it,â&#x20AC;? Johnson said. Now, at 63, Johnson wants to give something back to the sport he loves by helping others get started and helping those who decided to pursue bicycle racing. Riders meet at the Starbucks at 7 a.m. and leave by 7:15 a.m. There are no dues members pay, but they can choose to purchase a team uniform kit for $170. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think the format weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got works very well for everyone,â&#x20AC;? Johnson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We start out easy, and we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t drop anyone. We wait up for someone if they have a flat tire. Usually the last 15 miles of the route weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re taking we have an anything-goes policy. People can ride as hard as they want and then the speeds get to 25 to 30 mph range.â&#x20AC;? To find out more about Rosemount Cycling, visit www.rosemountcycling.com.

Gary Johnson, a former bicycle racer from Rosemount, is encouraging more people to give competitive biking a whirl. As part of his club, Rosemount Cycling, each Saturday morning an average of 12 to 25 of the 155 biking enthusiasts who have joined the club meet at the Rosemount Starbucks, located at County Road 42 and Highway 3, and set out on a 40- to 60-milelong ride. During the trips to various places including Northfield and Cannon Falls, Johnson is always on the lookout for riders who exhibit a talent for biking and may have a desire to race. Key attributes of potential racers include their position, riding style and if they are able to keep up as the group travels up hills. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a little bit of a coach. I teach different riding formations that the pros in Europe use, I put out e-mails with a tip of the week,â&#x20AC;? he said. Johnson encourages new people to try cycling, and said anyone who can ride about 15 to 20 miles on a flat road under calm weather conditions at a consistent speed of about 20 mph will probably be able to keep up with the group. Traveling together, the Laura Adelmann is at laura. trip, which typically takes adelmann@ecm-inc.com.

Post-recession, local government housing development booming by Laura Adelmann THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

The Dakota County Community Development Agency is apparently doing pretty well in this economy. While sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s foreclosure sales in Dakota County are nearing 1,300 this year, the CDA has strong revenues and plans to build, develop and purchase land while prices are still depressed. In 2011, the CDA budget is $52 million, a $3.4 million bump over fiscal year 2010. The agencyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest revenue source is intergovernmental grants, which total $21.6 million. Funds collected by the agency are primarily spent on subsidized housing, and the agency has many projects both under way and planned for 2011. CDA Executive Director Mark Ulfers said one of the agencyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s primary goals for fiscal year 2011 is to begin the process for the purchase and redevelopment of the Valley Boehlke/from 2A something, but you allowed something to happen to them, and allowed them to go some place with a new confidence,â&#x20AC;? he said. While teaching students how to find their voices in pitch and perfect harmony, Boehlke said he was also imparting other life lessons. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Through singing you are going to be enhanced as a manager, speaking in front of employees,â&#x20AC;? Boehlke said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It allows you to know who you are. It gives you an ability that nothing else can do.â&#x20AC;? Through the arts Boehlke said he saw students at once

Ridge Shopping Center in Burnsville. He told Dakota County commissioners June 8 that the 13-acre site is slated for 80 independent senior housing units and 60 assisted living units to be managed by Presbyterian Homes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are close to purchasing the site from Kraus Anderson,â&#x20AC;? Ulfers said. Meanwhile, the first residents of the CDAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s senior housing development, Cobblestone Square, in Apple Valley, are expected to move in at the end of June, and construction will begin on sites in South St. Paul and Farmington. Land acquisition is planned in Lakeville, where 36 workforce housing units are planned to be developed on 3.8 acres behind the Muller Family Theatre. Workforce housing units will be constructed in Apple Valley, north of the Super Target store, and in Farmington, 25 more workforce hous-

ing units are planned in Twin Ponds, located east of Highway 3 and west of County Road 50. A major renovation project is planned for Kidder Park affordable housing complex in Rosemount, similar to the significant improvements expected to be finished soon at Burnsvilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Chancellor Manor. Ulfers said the success of the Burnsville project was very significant. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had taken an old and tired development and pumped considerable new life into it,â&#x20AC;? he said. Calling Kidder Park a â&#x20AC;&#x153;troubled development,â&#x20AC;? Ulfers said the project could help improve the whole neighborhood. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It could be on the order of the magnitude of Chancellor Manor in terms of what it means to the area,â&#x20AC;? Ulfers said.

become vulnerable and then find the strength to sing a solo in front of hundreds of people. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The arts allow people to go and to experience something that no other discipline does,â&#x20AC;? Boehlke said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It allows us to make them a complete person, and it is something that is vitally important.â&#x20AC;? Boehlke has earned many awards and honors through the years. In 2005, he received the F. Melius Christiansen award, which is the highest honor given in Minnesota by the American Choral Directors Association. At that time, Thisweek carried a story recounting his journey through music and

all he accomplished (www. ThisweekLive.com/category/ news/rosemount). While Boehlkeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s legacy will be remembered in many ways by the many lives he has touched, there is one enduring theme he has returned to often. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We tell all of our students to follow their dreams,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think that it is so important to be successful and be happy in what they are doing. â&#x20AC;Ś They are happy in what they are doing because they know who they are, where they have been, why they are doing what they are doing. â&#x20AC;?

Opinion Thisweek Columnist Event shows how libraries have turned the page by Tad Johnson THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

The libraries of today are much different places than they were a generation ago. The public library I frequented during my school years was a passive place. One could hear a pencil drop inside its expansive four walls at nearly all of its hours of operation. As for its selection, it was virtually all books found through a manually operated card catalog. A June 12 free event at the Burnsville Performing Arts center staged by the Dakota County Library System shows how our places of books have transformed into active, engaging and exciting community centers. The first Rhythm and Words Family Music and Book Festival from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. showcases in a splash the changing role libraries are playing as it will provide a sample of the kind of programming people can find every week at Dakota County libraries. In the past few years, county residents have seen the shift in the

libraries’ focus in a concrete way with renovation projects and the construction of a new library. The work at Galaxie, Wescott and now Burnhaven has aimed to create room for the kinds of materials patrons increasingly are demanding, such as CDs and DVDs, while also adding space dedicated for computer stations. The new Robert Trail Library, completed last year, reflects the changing state of libraries. There is less room dedicated for printed reference materials and more space afforded for computer stations and small- and large-group meeting rooms. It is inside these meeting rooms where many of the interactive programs occur. There are story times for toddlers, sing-alongs, activities, crafts, video game contests, author readings, writing clubs, theatrical presentations and much more. If you don’t believe me, take a look at the Books Calendar in this edition or see it on our website under the Thisweekend head-

RHYTHM AND WORDS FAMILY FESTIVAL Dakota County Libraries’ Rhythm and Words musical lineup will include Bunny Clogs, Clementown, Koo Koo Kanga Roo, The Sweet Colleens, and the Whistlepigs String Band. Author presentations include Chris Monroe, Duluth author/ illustrator of the “Monkey with a Tool Belt” picture books, and Jarrett Krosoczka, creator of the Lunch Lady graphic novels and the Punk Farm picture books. People can sample fun and interactive family music classes provided by Kindermusik of the Valley and MacPhail Center for Music. Jo Jo’s Rise & Wine will provide on-site concessions. For more information, visit the library’s website at www.dakotacounty.us/library. ing. Ken Behringer, library system director, and Jen Verbrugge, in charge of Community Connections for the libraries, spoke recently about the event and the changing role of libraries during a recent episode of ThisweekLive the Show that is posted on our website. Verbrugge said the event, which is being funded by the 2008 voter-approved three-eighths percent sales tax increase for preserving the state’s arts and cultural

heritage, will appeal to all ages from toddlers to seniors. The music will include such styles as bluegrass, pop and hiphop. People will be encouraged to dance and even play along on instruments provided. “We want to bring music into their lives,” Verbrugge said. She said children’s librarians in Dakota County and across the country are implementing music programs because there is a strong link showing that rhythm and music help children learn

how to read. The event also includes author presentations and interactive family music classes. Behringer hopes the event will attract people who may not have been to a Dakota County library in a long time. “I see this event as a way for us to relate that in addition to putting on programs like this, we are an information resource, we have a homework help database … and cultural programs throughout the entire year,” Behringer said. “Every time you get an opportunity to tell the public that the library is so much more than what people may think it is, it works in our favor and we end up with more users.” If the event lures those who haven’t been to a library since my school years, here’s a hint: You won’t have to finger through the card catalog to find a book.

Letters Tolerating bullying is anti-education To the editor: If a child does poorly at school, many factors are involved. But sometimes changing only one thing can drastically increase a child’s chances of succeeding in school. What can be done to prevent bullying at school? In Minnesota, legislation was discussed in the 2009 session. Some have opposed it and believe other priorities should take precedence. Allowing or tolerating bullies at school is an antieducation agenda. It’s already a challenge to make sure kids have a quality education. Children should not fear going to school. And when a child is going through the school day, he or she should not have unnecessary distractions. School is a place to learn grammar, mathematics, science, etc. The public school system is not the appropriate place to expect children to learn how to deal with verbal or physical abuse. We have laws that are designed to protect adults from sexual intimidation in the workplace, but children aren’t offered a similar level of protection? They’re expected to “just deal with it” as a part of growing up? Maybe anti-bullying laws should be lower on the priority list, as some people believe. However, my belief is that some relatively small amount of time can be spent on this in future legislative sessions. If people can complain about their property taxes and how taxpayer money is used, I think improving the education system by helping to give children a sense of security and feelings of being

It might be fun for Bills to pretend he is a legislator and “cut” the budget and toss important projects ANDY ALT like the Rosemount Park Burnsville and Ride and our neighborhood technical colleges into the discard pile.  It’s another thing to be a responsible public servant for our community.  I’m To the editor: I recently received a sticking with our “real” “Session Commentary” re- representative –Phil Sternport from Kurt Bills, who is er. running against state Rep. Phil Sterner, DFL-Rose- MARTIN OLAGUE mount, for the Minnesota Apple Valley House of Representatives.  I was somewhat amused to read this “pseudo” report on the 2010 legislative session. Does Bills think he is already a legislator? In it, Bills simplistically To the editor: Like many of my friends states that to address next year’s estimated $6 bil- and neighbors, I have belion deficit, “the budget come increasingly frustratmust be cut.” OK, fine, ed with government, heath but what should be cut? care, and the state of our Should schools take the economy.

If Bills wants to cut, and do something about it. I could not help but get tell us exactly where. Bills also talks about excited when I first read the 2010 bonding bill.  He that an economics teacher seems pleased that Gov. from Rosemount High Tim Pawlenty “reduced the School, Kurt Bills, was size of the billion-dollar running for the Minnebill” and also says, “We sota House of Representaneed to have a serious dis- tives. With the economy at cussion about what defines the forefront of the issues Minnesotans are facing, it a ‘capital expenditure.’”  So, I assume he agreed just makes sense to (as Bills with Pawlenty’s slashing campaign slogan exclaims) of area projects in the 2010 bring ECON101 to the bonding bill, including Capitol. Shortly following the the Rosemount Park and Ride, funding for the nan- state legislative session, protected by those who love them can fit somewhere in the list of priorities. I don’t anticipate that it would take very much time at all: simply amend or expand some of the existing laws that protect children, laws which people already support.

volunteers began the process of dropping fliers at homes across Rosemount, Apple Valley, and part of Burnsville containing a post-legislative session report and commentary from Sen. Chris Gerlach, Rep. Tara Mack, and Kurt Bills. I found the information in these reports to be refreshingly upfront. It’s a very proactive approach to inform Minnesota citizens about what is happening at the Capitol. I was surprised to learn that on the same day that Bills began distributing these reports, state Rep. Phil Sterner had a meetand-greet at a local coffee shop with few in attendance. What does this mean for Sterner? One candidate waits for us to meet up with him while the other is out there, delivering to my front door. We definitely need a leader who is putting in the effort to get the job done. Bills is already showing that he’s going to be responsible to the people, and is communicating with the constituency. HEIDI PAYNE Apple Valley

Sterner on wrong side of the aisle To the editor: In his May 21 letter, William Cory Labovitch, a South St. Paul resident who cheerleads frequently for Apple Valley-Rosemount state Rep. Phil Sterner, asked why any pro-lifer would oppose Sterner’s re-election. In an exercise of remarkable efficiency, Labovitch went on to answer the question himself by saying, “Honestly, I don’t think they would.” I beg to differ. Many pro-life voters, including many of us who were once active in Sterner’s DFL party, do indeed oppose Sterner’s re-elec-

tion. We do so because Sterner’s party affiliation in and of itself undercuts the ability of citizens to defend innocent human life in its most vulnerable stages. The radical pro-abortion leadership of the DFL can maintain its stranglehold on power in this state only through the collusion of so-called “pro-life Democrats” like Sterner. Indeed, Sterner’s first vote – to bestow the extraordinary powers of Speaker of the House on abortion zealot Margaret Kelliher – pulled the rug out from under the pro-life cause he claims to support. When it comes to advancing the right to life cause, it matters less where Sterner stands on the issue than where he sits in the House. Sterner is on the wrong side of the aisle. Therefore, this pro-lifer will be supporting pro-lifer Kurt Bills for state representative DEB KACZMAREK Rosemount

State projects put people to work

of Revenue, which show wealthier individuals and corporations pay less of a share of their income in total taxes than those who are not so wealthy. These studies don’t scorn wealthy individuals and corporations. They merely report there’s a nicer set of tax standards for those who already have wealth. More recent attempts by DFL legislators Sandra Masin, Mike Obermueller, Phil Sterner, Will Morgan, Jim Carlson, and John Doll to level the playing field by raising taxes on these wealthy folks and corporations were vetoed by the governor. This was in spite of the fact that earlier cuts to federal and state tax rates for these privileged folks did not show a benefit to the economy during the BushPawlenty era. As increasing unemployment in the latter years of their administrations show, there was no “trickle-down” effect from these preferential favors. To rescue the economy of the local area and our state, many legislators worked to pass a bonding bill to put jobs and projects into effect. The results have helped our local economy. Even the governor signed the bill. Yet the embarrassed defenders want to distract us from the challenges of low home values and local unemployment. So they chant the mantra, “taxes bad, government bad” over and over. The writers deny that Roosevelt had it right. They want to avoid admitting that his public works projects and government investments into infrastructure put people to work and food onto tables. They’d rather not tell us how smart investments help families to survive and revive the economy.

To the editor: Recent writers felt moved to defend the “nonew-taxes” school of protection for wealthy individuals and corporations. They attacked the idea that government spending reduced unemployment during the Great Depression. Citing statistics of high unemployment during the early years of the Franklin Roosevelt administration, they failed to mention the sharp declines in unemployment during his time in office and the role of the Hoover administration in causing the original unemployment after the stock market crash of 1929.

Lightning golf qualifies for state for the first time Eastview girls led by Sara Detlefsen, Kristi Opatz and Anna Drahos by Andy Rogers THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

For the first time in school history, Eastview girls golf is going to state as a team. The Lightning won the Section 3AAA title last week at Bunker Hills in Coon Rapids, ending a 12year run by Woodbury. Eastview moved into the section last season and finished second behind Woodbury, which recently split with East Ridge High School. It was yet another honor bestowed upon Eastview this season. The girls also won the Lake Conference title. Sara Detlefsen, a sophomore, was the medalist at

sections with 153. She has won medalist honors several times this season including all six Lake Conference meets as well as four other invitationals. Her goal next week is to win the Class AAA state tournament after finishing third last season. “I know she’d like to do better than that,” her coach Bob Boldus said. “There’s definitely some great golfers up there. To win means a lot because of the great golfers that come out of the state.” Her teammates Kristi Opatz, Anna Drahos, Kelly Uhrich, Sam Peterson and Shannon Deutsch will join her at state next week. “It’s all six golfers that really play a part,” coach Bob Boldus said. Opatz had the secondlowest average in the Lake Conference this season behind Detlefsen. She was 37th at state last season as well.

Anna Drahos was 11th in the conference. “This team is incredible with the way they helped each other,” Boldus said. Uhrich has been up and down this season, shooting anywhere from a low 70 to an 85. “There’s better golf coming her way,” Boldus said. “She’s a big part of the team’s success.” Sam Peterson and Shannon Deutsch round out the lineup. “They’re not just good golfers, but they add a lot of support to the other girls on the team,” Boldus said. “They keep it light. Some of the other girls can take it pretty seriously and they keep it fun. You need those kind of players.” The girls aren’t going up to Bunker Hills on Tuesday through Thursday for state to enjoy the nice golf course. They want to do well.

Looking at the other teams, Boldus said he’d like to see Eastview finish in the top three. “We can really make some noise up there,” Boldus said. “We can give the top two teams a real go at it.” The secret to playing well in golf is finding some consistency. For Eastview the key will be staying in the now and worrying only about yourself, according to Boldus. “I try to keep them in the present and not think about the score,” he said. “It’s a big course, so I try to make sure they don’t get ahead of themselves. “If you play against someone else, you’re not playing your own game. It’s more of a mind set.” At sections, Eagan was third with 715, Rosemount fourth with 716 and Apple Valley fifth with 775. Rosemount’s Molly Fly-

Dylan Fodor led the team with 152, Nick Kuchera 154, Ryan Lutz 155, Jack Kaupa and Evan Kvittem carded 155. Derick Kuchera totaled 159. Other area qualifiers include Max Tylke from Eastview, who scored 149. His teammate Sam Christian will join him after shooting 154. From Apple Valley, Aaron Michaelson qualified with 154.

With 18 seniors, Eagan boys lacrosse finally makes it to state by Andy Rogers THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

For every senior athlete, the goal is to qualify for state. They’ve been playing their sport for several years and it’s their last chance to reach the pinnacle of high school sports. Eagan High School’s boys lacrosse team is headed to the state tournament for the first time thanks to a strong showing from its senior players. With 18 seniors, this was Eagan’s last chance for many reasons. “We knew we had to do it this year,” coach Bob Felter said. “This is the smartest team I’ve ever had. We have a bunch of honor students on the team. We can tell them to do anything.” Eagan has been putting the pieces together for several years. The team has qualified for the section finals several times, but could never get past Eastview. This year Eagan didn’t have to, as Eastview lost to Apple Valley in the section semifinals. The Eagan boys lacrosse team won the Section 3 tournament on June 4 defeating Apple Valley 10-4 in the finals. Although Eagan players have made it to state before on a cooperative club team, this is the first time since lacrosse was added as a varsity sport at Eagan the team has qualified for state. Chris Bowen led the team with three goals and

Kyle Sturgeon, Will Hersmann, Kyle Grovenstein and Luke Thiele each had a goal as well. Lucas Peterson led with seven saves in goal. While the Wildcats routinely put up double-digit goals every game, it’s the defense that has made the difference this year. “They’re not afraid of anything on defense,” Felter said. “Nobody can beat us with two people.” Only two teams have scored double-digit goals against Eagan this season: Eden Prairie and Breck. The Breck game was a month ago and Eden Prairie was two. The Wildcats have held teams to six or fewer goals in the last five games. With plenty of experience on their side, the Wild-

cats were able to mix up their game plan frequently this season. It took a few weeks, but once Eagan settled on its offensive and defensive strategies, winning soon followed. “We worked on a couple different packages this year,” Hersmann said. “The coaches brought in a more complex offense.” Hersmann has been through almost everything with Eagan. He’s been on varsity for the past three years working toward becoming the team’s leading scorer who wins 65 percent of face-offs. “Not many players can say that,” Felter said. “I would take him over anyone else in the state.” But he’s not the only reason Eagan made it to the state tournament. With 18 seniors on the team, several

players can get to the net on any given night or stop their opponents from getting close to goalkeeper Peterson. “There’s been so many different players who stepped up this year,” Hersmann said. Seniors such as Herren, Bowen, Sturgeon, Brad Dubbink, Grovenstein and Thiele can put up a few goals at any time. Eagan drew the No. 3 seed in the state tournament thanks to a 12-4 record. The Wildcats will played TotinoGrace at 8 p.m. on Thursday. With a win, Eagan would play the winner of the Benilde-St. Margaret’s and Wayzata contest at 8 p.m. on Friday at Mounds View High School in the state finals. The third-place game is

Road construction along 140th Street starts June 14 Garden View Drive will be closed by Andrew Miller

APPLE VALLEY

THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

Road construction begins next week on 140th Street between Pennock Avenue and McAndrews Road in Apple Valley. The 1.3-mile stretch of road will remain open to traffic during the construction period of June 14 to Aug. 27, but traffic will be limited to one lane each direction within the construction zone. Improvements at the Garden View Drive/140th Street intersection will cause periods of closure of the north and south legs of Garden View Drive; a detour route will be provided. Consisting of â&#x20AC;&#x153;full-depth pavement reconstruction,â&#x20AC;? the project when completed will provide a smoother ride for the approximately 12,000 vehicles that travel 140th Street between Pennock and McAndrews each day, according to the city. The Garden View Drive/140th Street intersection is especially in need of a makeover, said city engineer Colin Manson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Currently, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a pretty rough transition through

that intersection,â&#x20AC;? Manson said. The project also includes the addition of a pedestrian trail on the south side of 140th Street between Guthrie Avenue and Hayes Road, on the northern edge of the Apple Valley High School campus. The trailâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s construction began in late May and is already â&#x20AC;&#x153;nearly complete,â&#x20AC;? Manson said. Work on the 1/4-mile trail is expected to be finished no later than June 30. The 140th Street project carries an estimated price tag of $1.1 million. The city has received federal funding through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, which will cover about half the cost of the project, with the city footing the remainder. Construction updates, along with the detour route for the Garden View Drive/140th Street intersection closures, will be posted on the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website, www. cityofapplevalley.org.
