Board reviews class-size targets Cost to reduce class sizes by one student is $300,000 to $350,000 by Kara Hildreth THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

After parents spoke out about the potential for larger class sizes in elementary schools this fall, the Farmington School Board reviewed its policy regarding class-size targets Monday, June 14. Of particular concern to parents are proposed class-size target increases for second grade, which is proposed to rise from 20-25 students to 26-30 and fourth-grade targets from 25-28 students to 25-30. If the board were to revise elementary class-size targets down-

FARMINGTON ward by one student, it would cost an additional $300,000 to $350,000. To reduce it by two students would cost about $750,000, according to Superintendent Brad Meeks. Board Member Julie McKnight reminded people that voters did not approve a recent levy question that asked for $750,000 to reduce class sizes by two students in primary elementary grades. There was a discussion whether or not to keep “instructional resources� as an option for principals

when elementary classes reach more than 25 students, according to the current policy. Board Member Julie Singewald said she would be on the conservative side and remove “instructional resources,� leaving principals only the option of hiring another teacher in order to reduce class sizes. Board Member Julie McKnight indicated she did not want to hinder principals if they have a better idea on how to distribute any additional full-time equivalent teachers.

Tattoo studio opens in Lakeville Owner: Tattoos more mainstream due to television effect by Derrick Williams THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

Tattoos used to be taboo. Just 20 years ago, body art was associated with biker gangs and rebellion. “People didn’t want tattoo shops in their communities,� Shannon Scalise said. “Now, tattoos are becoming mainstream. There’s been a shift in perception. For me, it’s the ‘L.A. Ink’ effect. Tattoos, the culture, it’s all on TV for people to see.� That shift led Scalise to open Lakeville’s only tattoo shop, Fineline Body Art, earlier this spring. “I started looking in this area about six years ago,� Scalise, an Apple Valley resident, said. Fineline is located on the corner of Cedar Avenue and County Road 46 in a Play It Again Sportsanchored business complex. Scalise is the only artist in his shop. His wife, Heidi, runs the office.

District’s bus fees to match state guidelines by Kara Hildreth THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

The families of more than 100 District 192 students will need to pay for school bus transportation this fall as part of a potential revenue enhancement. The change could raise an estimated $35,000 for the 2010 school year. Each year, the district spends $3.4 million on transportation. When the 2010-11 district budget is adopted Monday, June 28, the School Board is expected to approve the bussing policy to match state guidelines. If adopted, the new policy will ask parents from three neighborhoods within one mile of their school to pay $270.40 per student for bussing based on a state funding formula for the 2010-11 school year. The state requires free bus transportation be provided to elementary students who live more than one mile from school property and to secondary students in high school who live more than two miles from school property. “Also, given the fact that we’ll have to treat middle schools like elementary schools because sixth grade is included as elementary under state law, the total budget impact will be lower with fewer students being affected,� said Aaron Tinklenberg, district communications specialist. Students who need to cross roads that are considered hazardous such as Akin Road, Highway 3 and 195th Street to walk to school will still be offered free trans-

DISTRICT 192 portation regardless of the distance to school. A number of other Minnesota districts already charge bus transportation fees. “When we are faced with flat funding year after year, there are a lot of other districts that are also looking for additional ways to increase revenues,� said Jeff Priess, finance director. Families can pay the fee in full or by monthly payments, Priess said. A letter will be sent to homes in the affected neighborhoods. Under the district’s proposal, the Farmington neighborhoods from the following schools would be charged for bussing: North Trail – homes along Fieldcrest Avenue, north of 175th Street, and on Fieldcrest Court, Firestone Path, Firestone Circle and Firtree Place. Meadowview Elementary – homes near the intersection of 195th Street and Pilot Knob Road, including those residences along Estes Path, Escalade Way, 197th Street and Escort Trail. Farmington Elementary – homes located south of Park Drive and west of Highway 3. The district’s website has an interactive map of the proposed bussing change and affected neighborhoods at www.farmington.k12. mn.us.

Streefland and other County Board members of his era were fiscal conservatives, Turner said. “That’s a great legacy that he left,� Turner said. “He left the county in absolutely outstanding shape.� Turner recalled that in the mid-1980s, when the county was looking to locate some courtrooms and offices in the western part of the county, Streefland pushed for use of city-owned land next to the old City Hall on Highway 13. In the end, the City Council approved a land sale with different terms than had been negotiated, and the deal fell through, Turner said. “Ultimately we built the Western Services Center (in Apple Valley), which made it a moot point, but for 15, 20 years we would have had nice county facilities right here,� Turner said. Jennifer said her father had a strong interest in human services and Dakota County’s vulnerable populations. His interests included improving foster care and “deinstitutionalizing� youth treatment facilities, she said. “I’m actually a social worker for the county, and was greatly encouraged by my dad to do that,� Jennifer said. The family moved in 1977 from the farm to a home on Elizabeth Lane in Burnsville. But Streefland “remained a farm boy to the end, farming and gardening, sharing his produce with friends and neighbors,� his obituary said. Streefland was preceded in death by a daughter, Deborah Neubauer, and his parents, Russell Sr. and Mary.

Opinion Thisweek Columnist District websites are good source of info on area schools by Joe Nathan THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

Are you finding the information you want about Lakeville and Farmington public schools? Would you be content if people described you just by giving your height or weight? Probably not. There’s much more to know about you than a couple of numbers, like: Are you married? What are your hobbies? What are you really good at? Do you have children? What’s your job? What is something you are proud of accomplishing? Are you a member of a religion, and if so, which one? Those questions give a fuller picture of each of us, and there are many more. As the school year ends, I’ve been thinking about how to describe schools and districts. What kind of information are

you looking for about Lakeville and Farmington public schools? The Lakeville Area Public Schools website is www.isd194.k12. mn.us. You could spend hours looking through the vast array of information available. There’s a well done, comprehensive section for families new to the district. Like many districts, there is information about each individual school. Some of the teachers have their own websites, with pictures, assignments and schedules. Some of the schools have rotating pictures of students and staff. There’s a complete list of staff e-mails, by name, school and department. Pictures, phone numbers and

e-mails of each School Board member are provided. “About us” includes a history of the district from 1878. In 1900, $500 built the first school, at the northeast corner of Holyoke Avenue and 206th Street. There’s lots more. Farmington’s website is www. farmington.k12.mn.us. The home page includes a rotating series of pictures featuring students. There also are links to several news stories, like information about graduation, a publication of staff and student achievements, and recognition of the district for “excellence in financial reporting.” Like Lakeville, there is a considerable amount of information about individual schools, and email contacts for many teachers, staff and administration. One common e-mail is listed for all

School Board members. Another section of the website describes how the Farmington district has worked to reduce energy costs. It estimates that in the last six months, it has lowered energy costs by 15 percent. A number of examples are offered about how this was done. The Minnesota Department of Education website also provides information about your district and schools. If you go to http://education. state.mn.us/ReportCard2005/index.do, and then to the section that lists districts alphabetically, there is a vast amount of information. MDE includes a description of the students by race, income level, percentage of students with special needs and students who don’t speak English as their first

language, percentage of students proficient in reading and math, and student-teacher ratios. There’s also a section on the website showing how your district compares to other districts on total costs, as well as individual items like administration and community education. Some of this information is gathered and reported because of federal requirements. But I’m wondering – what information are you looking for? Are you finding it? Please let me know. Joe Nathan, a former public school teacher and administrator, directs the Center for School Change, Humphrey Institute, University of Minnesota. He can be reached at jnathan@umn.edu.

Letters OCS energy development move forward To the editor: Letter writer Veda Kanitz jumped on U.S. Rep. John Kline, R-Lakeville, for recommending “moving forward with energy development in the Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) and Arctic Coastal Plain along with Western oil-shale lands.” I agree with Kline and the experts because no energy policy now on the boards is going to kick in fast and hard enough to make a difference. The result will be skyrocketing prices for energy of every description and prices at the pump that could go to $5 a gallon. FRANKLIN M. WICKER Lakeville

Protect ash trees from emerald ash borer To the editor: I keep seeing news stories on how we are going to lose all of our ash trees to the emerald ash borer. Many people are unaware that they can do something about it. Citizens can take action to save their ash trees. If we don’t treat our ash trees, they will eventually die. As a real estate professional, I care deeply about this issue because about a quarter of our trees are ash trees. Many of the boulevard and city-planted trees are ash trees, and our lawns, neighborhood parks, and commercial landscaping will definitely look a lot different without them, not to mention the value trees add to real estate. You can identify an ash tree because it has multiple diamond-shaped leaves that come out of one line. Please consider protecting your tree with an insecticide treatment or having a professional service come and take a look. It’s the right thing to do for our community. DAVE PROUTY Lakeville

Tolerating or accepting 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 anti-education 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 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.

To the editor: Thank you so much to the people of Faith United Methodist Church for the wonderful baby shower. Ildiko and I are touched by the outpouring of love and support. We are thankful to be part of this wonderful con- ANDY ALT gregation. Thank you to Kay Hoeppner Burnsville

Every Minnesota student deserves chance to succeed by David C. Olson SPECIAL TO THISWEEK

increased his reading speed by 23 words per minute. He started the year on first-grade math level and left her class at a 70 percent mastery of all third-grade math objectives. He attended tutoring for three months and even called her one evening to find out how he did on his spelling test. He knew he had gotten his first “A” in spelling for the year. The progress of Troy and her other students also represented my niece’s many “within reach” days — the many days between perceived successes and failures. Her students progressed because “our daily commitment to every student is where we slowly but surely pushed our students toward the significant progress they’ve made.” Minnesota is missing key opportunities to place more of these high-caliber candidates in the classrooms. At present, the highest-performing teaching programs for undeserved students — programs like Teach for America that have shown remarkable success in other parts of the country — have no permanent status in Minnesota. Contrary to the claims of Education Minnesota, alternative licensure neither takes away jobs from current teachers nor shortchanges teacher training. The additional options simply enhance the pool of quality candidates and will bolster the collective efforts of the rank-and-file teaching corps. The failure to pass alternative pathways for teacher licensure — one of the Minnesota Chamber of Commerce’s key initiatives for this year — represented both the best and worst in crafting public policy. I’ve never been prouder as part of a coalition that had nothing but the best intentions for Minnesota’s future. In the end, however, the special interests of a single group took precedence when DFL leadership blocked this measure that had bipartisan support. DFL leadership thwarted efforts for the proposal to even be debated and voted on the Senate floor — although it had advanced through key House and Senate committees. The issue is too important to let die. We’ll be back next year, along with the hundreds of other supporters, determined to ensure that every Minnesota student has a chance to succeed.

I have participated in numerous Capitol press conferences. None has been more impressive than when supporters of alternative teacher licensure advanced the measure in the waning days of the 2010 session. The coalition was as broad as I’ve witnessed. Represented were students from a cross-section of ethnic backgrounds; Democrats, Republicans and Independents; parents, students and school administrators; state senators and representatives. They all encouraged state policy-makers to give our struggling kids some help. They all shared the passion and mission to ensure that every Minnesota student deserves a chance to succeed. Who “won” in the end? The truth is no one, but the leaders of Education Minnesota must think they did. The statewide teachers’ union spent a boatload of money on ads to prevent the best and brightest individuals from sharing their expertise with Minnesota children. And it succeeded. Nearly every supporter of alternative licensure knows a success story. My experience is that of my niece who recently celebrated her first year of teaching third grade in Tulsa, Okla. Her preparation for the classroom was as a graduate of Teach for America — an alternative licensure program recognized nationwide for its rigorous training and its academic results for narrowing the achievement gap between advantaged and disadvantaged students. Her story is likely similar to many that our teachers face day in and day out. “Almost 180 days later, I stand before you, exhausted and proud,” she said during an evening of celebration. “We made it through our first year of being classroom leaders, teachers, social workers, mentors, coaches and cheerleaders. While this may mark a nearing halfway point in our formal commitment, what it really marks is our formal introduction into a lifelong movement.” As all teachers do, my niece experienced ups and downs during the course of the year. She related her “off track” days with Troy, a student who experienced a death in his family that ultimately led to the family leaving its home for personal safety reasons and his dropping out of school. Troy inspired her “on track” days, David Olson is president of the Minnesota too. Despite his personal problems, Troy Chamber of Commerce. He can be reached achieved.

THISWEEK June 18, 2010

by Laura Adelmann THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

Local officials are eager to meet with the state Legislative Auditorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office regarding its investigation into transit governance. In a June 15 joint Minnesota Valley Transit Authority/Dakota County Board meeting, elected officials freely shared numerous concerns regarding the Metropolitan Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s oversight of transit funding and planning. Commissioner Will Branning said the Met Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s control has grown over the years, and now local plans, funding and procedures must be approved by the regional agency. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now we have subservient oversight going on,â&#x20AC;? he

said of the local transit providers that opted to run their own transit services instead of Metro Transit, operated by the Met Council. He noted that the optouts were first legislatively allowed after it was learned that, for the price local communities were paying for Metro Transit services, riders could have been given chauffeured limo rides. County Commissioner Tom Egan said the Met Council has a cookie-cutter approach to transit, but one size doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fit all. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing something unique, like BRT (bus rapid transit), you have to have the opt-outs and vehicles that look and act and operate differently than the conventional system,â&#x20AC;? he said. Rosemount Mayor Bill Droste questioned why two different providers, MVTA

and Metro Transit, are both operating transit services from the new Lakeville park and ride off of Interstate 35. Scott County Commissioner Jon Ulrich said the situation is an example of Met Council inefficiencies, which the Legislative Auditorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office intends to review. Commissioner Nancy Schouweiler said a key reason for the concerns is that the Met Council is only accountable to the governor. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no accountability with the Met Council, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the key,â&#x20AC;? Schouweiler said. The board intends to set a meeting with the Legislative Auditor to further discuss concerns and provide input for its report, which is planned to be issued in early January.

Commissioners take a spin down Cedar Avenue, without a vehicle Bus ride simulator helps train drivers by Laura Adelmann THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

Dakota County commissioners have a new understanding of the risks involved in driving a 9.5-foot-wide bus along a 10-foot-wide shoulder. On June 15, commissioners and members of the Minnesota Valley Transit Authority took a virtual bus ride down Cedar Avenue to learn more about the driverassistive technology being installed in 10 bus rapid transit vehicles that will soon travel the busy roadway.

The University of Minnesota-developed simulator resembles the cab of a bus, and is surrounded by wall-sized screens. As images appear and pass on the screen, it feels as though the bus is moving, and helps drivers become comfortable with using the cuttingedge technology designed to help them steer safely. Included in the system are â&#x20AC;&#x153;digital maps,â&#x20AC;? displays that provide information on lane boundaries and nearby vehicles even in low-visibility conditions. The system also features rear-end collision-avoidance systems and lane-departure warnings.

To help keep the bus between the lines, the driverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seat vibrates like a rumble strip to warn when the driver is steering too far to one side. Rosemount Mayor Bill Droste, a member of the MVTA board, compared the experience to a ride at Valleyfair, and County Commissioner Tom Egan said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been through airplane simulators before, but nothing quite like that.â&#x20AC;? The system has been found to increase safety and reliability by improving driver confidence while driving in narrow lanes. Laura Adelmann is at laura. adelmann@ecm-inc.com.

Shannon Scalise works on a tattoo for a customer. Scalise opened Fineline Body Art, Lakevilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only tattoo studio, earlier this spring. Tatoos/from 1A From tribal tattoos, to colorful or dark art, to oldschool skulls, to portraits or even old tattoo coverups, Scalise said he can do it all. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Not all artists are the same and people can come in and look at my portfolio to see if my style is what theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking for,â&#x20AC;? Scalise said. That said, all artists have things they like to do more than others, and for Scalise, Norse tattoos are his favorite. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I like Vikings and Norse legend,â&#x20AC;? he said. Thus far, Fineline is exactly what Lakeville was looking for. City Administrator Steve Mielke said Fineline was welcomed by the City Council. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not a tattoo guy, but I certainly have friends

Classes/from 1A agreed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to be able to give them (principals) the flexibility and empower them to make the decisions that are best for the buildings,â&#x20AC;? Walter said. Meeks said other solutions can help address class sizes such as using an instructional resource or a paraprofessional. In recent years, buildings with larger class sizes were granted a half-time teacher to be added to assist during reading and math blocks, but Singewald said this approach is not the best solution. Board Chairman Bob Heman said as the class size

who have them,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re glad to have them.â&#x20AC;? Heidi married into the tattoo business, she said, but after nearly 15 years, she loves it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I love the industry and I can honestly say, nothing surprises me anymore,â&#x20AC;? she said. She said the shop is one of the most advanced and safe tattoo shops sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ever seen. Scalise uses air guns instead of the older, electric style. With most of the pieces being disposable, customers are assured sterile and safe equipment and conditions, Heidi said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nothing gets reused,â&#x20AC;? she said. Scalise said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all about educating customers about the process beforehand. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not just for them, but I want a read on a person, too,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have a consultation with a cus-

tomer before they get their tattoo. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll talk designs and what the tattoo will mean for them. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an educational thing for both of us.â&#x20AC;? Scalise still travels, he said, even though he owns his own shop. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My friends call me the nomad because I travel so often, learning more and more about the industry,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m self-taught. I learn by seeing what other artists are doing.â&#x20AC;? All that training has given Scalise a massive portfolio and the training necessary to have his own shop. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I love my job. I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t trade it for anything in the world,â&#x20AC;? he said. For more information about Fineline Body Art, visit www.finelinebodyart. com.

numbers become more concrete into the fall, if needed: â&#x20AC;&#x153;We will add the funds, we will add the teachers.â&#x20AC;? The district is waiting for at least 60 kindergartners to enroll based on earlier projections, but if they do not there will need to be staff adjustments, Meeks said. Parent Tera Lee urged the board to amend the policy to make class-size targets untouchable. She also asked why â&#x20AC;&#x201C; based on current projections â&#x20AC;&#x201C; at least a portion of the projected teachers are not in the budget. Brian Treakle, Farmington parent to a first-grader and preschooler, was concerned there are only two

board members who are concerned about keeping the current class-size range. Treakle said he wants to find funding to hire more teachers and lower class sizes, understanding there are financial limitations that prohibit really low class sizes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need to make sure we have exhausted all the solutions before we let class sizes increase,â&#x20AC;? Treakle said. The board will review the policy and conduct a second reading at the Monday, June 28, meeting and potentially a third reading before taking any action.

Dew Days events continue this weekend Grand Day Parade moves to Saturday with new route by Kara Hildreth THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

Farmington Dew Days will be in full swing this weekend as local residents still have time to take part in many of the five-day festivalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s events before it ends Sunday, June 20. With most events held downtown Farmington this year after many were organized at the Dakota County Fairgrounds, people can find plenty of fun in the areas of Oak and Spruce streets in the downtown business district. New to the event this year will be the Grand Day Parade at 1 p.m. Saturday, instead of Sunday. The Kiddie Parade will take off before the Grand Day parade. The parade route also is new as it has changed due to road construction. It will begin at Third and Spruce

streets and then head onto Second Street. Live stage entertainment and a carnival will be set up on the weekend on the corner of Fourth and Oak streets. The art fair and business expo will be dispersed on streets throughout downtown. Also new this year is an arts and crafts fair that is hoped will have the potential for growth in years to come. Organizers say they hopes to garner more artists next year as vendors often book well in advance of events. Top bands will provide live entertainment on Friday and Saturday nights at the Farmington American Legion. The Dakota Valley Arts Council will give a free art show inside Farmington City Hall.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Another couple months in the books will further help to untangle post-tax-credit effects from broader market trends.â&#x20AC;?

       

 

May of this year marks the first time since August of 2005 where the Twin Cities real estate market had five consecutive months of year-over-year median price increases. However, pending sales figures declined sharply in May. It is clear that the tax credit party is over and the hangover has truly set in. The May median sales price for the Twin Cities 13-county metropolitan area was $175,000, a 6.1 percent increase over last May, but the only segment of the market where prices actually increased was the lender-owned (foreclosure) submarket. Traditional and short sales both posted year-over-year price declines. New listings were down across the board; pending sales were down for every category except short sales â&#x20AC;&#x201D; which were up 28.4 percent over May of last year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;While it was nice to see another month of median price gains, a decline in pending sales certainly casts a pall over any additional price increases,â&#x20AC;? said Brad Fisher, president of the Minneapolis Area Association of Realtors. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rising prices and declining sales is a pattern that presumably cannot continue.â&#x20AC;? The median sales price of traditional homes (excluding foreclosures and short sales) in May was $198,000, down $12,000 or 5.7 percent from the $210,000 figure posted last May. The foreclosure sales price showed a welcome 7.6 percent increase to $125,000, while short sale properties posted a 7.0 percent decline to $143,250. There were 3,910 signed purchase agreements in May, a decrease of 24.6 percent from last year. That is the greatest year-over-year decrease since April 2006. Seller activity also slowed considerably, with 6,335 new listings posted. This represents a 22.4 percent decrease from last May. In fact, by year-to-date figures, there have been only 23 more pending sales so far this year compared to last. Like many regions across the country, there was an uptick in activity as the April 30 federal tax credit deadline approached. When the tax credit ended, buyers seem to have lost interest without the substantial incentive enticing them into the market. In terms of year-overyear comparisons, housing inventory remained fairly constant in the Twin Cities. The 26,412 active listings for May weighed in at just 1.0 percent under May of last year. The supplydemand ratio increased by

Panther throwers take charge at state by Andy Rogers THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

Just as they have all season, the Lakeville North throwers took charge at the Class AA state track and field meet last weekend at Hamline University in St. Paul. The Panthers earned 15 of its 20 points from the throwing events.

LAKEVILLE Jennifer Svobodny was the leader in the shot put for North. Her throw of 40 feet, 8 inches was fourthbest at state. Her teammates Caitlin Caraway and Emma Erickson threw with the best of Minnesota in the discus. Caraway was fourth with a 129-

1 toss and Erickson came in seventh with a 121-11. The final five points were the result of a group effort from the 4x100-meter relay. Angelica Anyaogu, Nicole Naatjes, Katrina Nicholson and Rachel Banham ran the relay in 48.32 seconds putting them in fifth place. Naatjes also finished in 12th place in the 100 clock-

Hussung wins state discus title, takes second in shot by Pat Rupp THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

Tiger thrower Logan Hussung went into last weekend’s Class AA state track and field championships at Hamline University with high expectations. When all was said and done he may have exceeded them. “I was thinking top two in both the shot and discus,” he said. “Going in, my numbers were up there with the leaders, so I thought that’s where I should be.” The University of Minnesota recruit won a heated battle with Missota Conference rival Luke Johnson of Red Wing to capture the state discus title Saturday, a day after he took second in the shot put in an agonizingly close battle with Blaine’s Dijon Starr. “The discus was one of the most intense competitions of the entire state meet,” coach Brian Helmstetter said. “Logan and Johnson were within inches of each other through most of the competition and about 20 feet better than everybody else. “I’m not sure it has sunk in yet that he is the state champion. I think he’s just happy to beat his old buddy from Red Wing.” Johnson led by four feet over Hussung after the preliminaries but the Tiger senior took the lead by a scant three inches with his first throw of 177-feet, 6 inches in the final. The champ added another foot to that distance over his next two throws, finishing at 178-6. Johnson took second at 177-3. On Friday, Hussung came within an inch of sweeping the state throwing titles. He led the pack heading into the final throw at 58-4.25 before Starr uncorked a 58-5.25 toss on his final attempt to jump

Farmington’s Erin Hickey hands off to Maria Kiminski for the third leg of the 4x200-meter relay at the Class AA state track and field meet.

FARMINGTON from fourth place to first. Hussung, the only Farmington state qualifier, scored 22 points, a total good enough for the Tigers to rank 15th overall among 60 teams scoring points. Hussung’s title gives Farmington its second state throwing championship in four years. Trey Davis won the shot put title in 2006.

Girls track The Tiger girls scored a pair of seventh-place finishes and totaled six points at the Class AA Track and Field Championships last weekend at Hamline University in St. Paul. Farmington ranked 40th among 57 schools scoring points in the annual gathering of the premier high school athletes in the state. Hopkins literally ran away with the team title with 81 points Alexandria placed a distant second with 45. The Section 1AA champion 4x200-meter relay team of Alyssa Parco, Erin Hickey, Maria Kiminski and Amy Kiminski shaved .36 of a second off its school

record set earlier this season with a 1:42.44 clocking, the same as sixth place Grand Rapids. “We had one bad handoff in the prelims that cost us a little as far as lane assignment for the finals went,” coach Tom Hart said. “But in the finals we hit everything pretty well. There wasn’t that much difference in the final times. “You always think you could have run better, but the girls went out and competed with everything they had. I’m very proud of them.” Parco scored the other Farmington points at state with a 45.46 effort in the 300-meter hurdles, just .01 of a second off her school record set earlier this spring. “Alyssa went out fast and was right there with the leaders at the sixth hurdle (out of eight),” Hart said, “but she didn’t have that finishing burst at the end.” Freshman Nadia Lorencz, who broke a 32-year old school record in the long jump this season, also made the state meet field. She jumped 16-11.75 in Thursday’s preliminaries but did not qualify for the finals.

The 4x100-meter relay for Lakeville South finished second at the Class AA state track and field meet last weekend thanks to the efforts from Trent Bertamus, Tyler Skluzacek, Casey Troop and Blair Riegel.

Cougars speed past the competition by Andy Rogers THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

The sprinters for Lakeville South proved to be some of the fastest in Minnesota last weekend at the Class AA state track and field meet at Hamline University in St. Paul. The 4x100-meter relay was the top finisher for the Cougars. Trent Bertamus, Tyler Skluzacek, Casey Troop and Blair Riegel circled the track in 43.05 seconds. They were .34 of a second behind the winners from Edina. Riegel was also seventh in the long jump with a 21-foot, 7.5-inch leap. He was also ninth-

LAKEVILLE best in the 200 running in 23.07. Ben Kuhr had the sixth farthest throw in the discus with a toss of 153 feet, 9 inches. Pole vaulter Alex Nord reached 13th highest in the pole vault, and Ben Ruth was 19th in the 110 hurdles. The Cougars ended the season with a secondplace finish at the Section 1AA meet, winners at the True Team Section 1AAA, seventh at True Team State and fourth in the Lake Conference.

Correction The headline for the Lakeville lacrosse article in last week’s edition incorrectly reported that this was the team’s second year of competition. It is the team’s fourth year. Thisweek Newspapers regrets the error.

Farmington baseball saves the best for last by Pat Rupp THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

The 2010 Tiger baseball season was one of peaks and valleys. A 0-3 start was followed by a 7-5 run, then a fourgame losing streak and ended with a three-game stretch of high-level play. “We really came a long way as a team and as individuals from the beginning of the season to the end,” coach Mike Winters said. “By the end of the year, I don’t think people wanted to play us.”

FARMINGTON Overall the Tigers finished with a record of 9-13 and their 5-9 record in the Missota Conference earned them a share of sixth place in the final Missota Conference standings. Justin Lavey, the team’s Most Valuable Player who hit .351 and anchored the pitching staff with a 4-2 record and 3.57 earned run average, and Justin Tang, a .327 hitter with a 3-1 record and 3.00 ERA, landed spots

on the all-Missota Conference squad. Matt Rudorfer, the team’s leading hitter (.377), and Michael Jolliff, the leader in runs batted in (16) each earned all-league honorable mention. Although the Tigers finished with a sub-.500 record, the season held no shortage of highlights. Farmington defeated traditional powers Edina, Apple Valley, Orono and Rochester John Marshall and finished the season by

splitting its final 16 games. “The only disappointments were our 1-5 start and our one-run loss to Winona in the second round of the section,” Winters said. “If we could have won that game, we would have made it to the Final Four.” Winters said he will miss the presence of this year’s senior class when practice rolls around next spring. “I appreciated their effort and positive attitude,” he said. “With the way last year ended, it was a refreshing

change. They accepted their roles and grew as ball players and as men. I wish them all the best.” Even though he will have only three letterwinners returning, the Tiger coach is looking forward to the 2011 season. “This year’s freshmen and sophomores hit as well or better than any group I’ve had,” he said. “If we can develop some pitchers and solidify our lineup early we should be tough.”


THISWEEK June 18, 2010

First Tiger girls lacrosse season exceeds expectations of coach Considering he was a new coach starting a new varsity program, Dan Pickens didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t quite know what to expect from the first-ever Farmington High School girls lacrosse season. What he got was a lot of satisfaction. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The team surpassed all of my expectations,â&#x20AC;? Pickens said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had a great group of girls who were committed to the team. We had up-and-down weather but we continued to have almost all of the girls at every practice. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are young and learning and that is a dangerous

FARMINGTON combination for anyone on our schedule for the next couple of years. If the girls continue to work as hard as they did this year, the next couple of seasons are going to be great.â&#x20AC;? Farmington finished its inaugural season with a 2-10 record with the wins coming against Rochester Century and Missota Conference rival Holy Angels. Pickens said the season was filled with team highlights, some quantifiable and others not. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We scored 83 goals and had 39 assists,â&#x20AC;? he said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our goalies had a save per-

centage about eight points above the national average. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have 41 girls coming back next year and as a team we had a great attitude from the beginning of the season to the end. It was a great first year.â&#x20AC;? Ally Midboe, Adrienne Jolicoeur and Tia Jacoby carried much of the offensive load for the Tiger offense. Midboe finished with a team-high 20 goals and seven assists while Jolicoeur contributed 14 goals and three assists for 17 points. The speedy Jacoby added five goals and seven assists. Maddie Kohlbeck handled most of the goaltending chores, surrendering

 

��  

94 goals in 8.5 games and compiling a 55 percent save percentage. Jacobsen had a 52 percent save mark in 2.5 games. Pickens gave credit to assistant coaches Shawn Anderson and Abby Thell and strong parental support for helping make the inaugural season a successful one and said looking back things surprisingly well. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We set our goals and achieved some of them,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The others we will work on next year. We learned through every win and every loss, no matter what the score. That was the most important thing.â&#x20AC;?

Girls have a growing year, pains and all by Pat Rupp THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

When Rob Carpentier took over as Farmington girls golf coach this spring he knew his young, inexperienced team would take its share of lumps â&#x20AC;Ś and he was right. For openers, various players expected to vie for varsity positions spent the spring recovering from injuries, competing in other sports or concentrating on academics. That left the team with just one experienced varsity player and several holes to fill in the varsity lineup. Fielding a team of senior captain Alexia Rains and five mostly inexperienced golfers, the Tigers finished at or near the bottom of the standings in every meet they played in 2010. But that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean that the season just completed was without merit. As a matter of

FARMINGTON fact, Carpentier said for the most part the team achieved its goals. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The idea was to grow and gain experience and I strongly believe we did that,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The girls are fired up and we are taking steps to ensure both individual and team success next year.â&#x20AC;? Carpentier awarded 10 golfers varsity letters to players for their efforts this season and only Rains was a senior. Underclassmen letterwinners included juniors Terra Klima and Chelsea Runyon; sophomores Brenna Donnelly and Megan Elliott; freshmen Alexis House, Alexis Preese and Mia Johnston and eighth-graders Brianna Swenson and Annie Grengs. Rains finished atop the Tiger leader board most of the season and received the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Most Valuable Player

award. Johnson captured the Most Improved Player award. Carpentier said that highlights of the 2010 season included shaving 66 strokes off the team score from the first conference meet to the last; finishing ninth at the talentfilled Stan Otness Invitational and having Rains shoot a career-best round of 89 at the conference tournament in Hutchinson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The best thing was watching the kids grow and knowing they will be formidable in the future,â&#x20AC;? he said. The first-year coach added that losing Rains may well be his biggest challenge next year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The girls that follow will have a great deal to do to even remotely fill her shoes as a leader, teammate and friend,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This year was a joy to be a part of and much of that was due to Alexia.â&#x20AC;? An area where Carpen-

tier would like to see improvement is his teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s off-season effort. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My belief is that we will surprise some teams next year and fight for the conference title in two years,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The big thing is that everyone needs to stick with the game. That was a problem coming into this season.â&#x20AC;?

Boys golf team was consistently inconsistent by Pat Rupp

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had a strange season in that our junior varsity score was often as good as or better than the varsity in a meet,â&#x20AC;? first-year coach Jon Holmes said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It came down to not making the right choice of who to put on what team on a given day.â&#x20AC;? Letterwinners for the 2010 season included senior Brandon Beers; juniors Cooper Loew, Trevor Hockert, Mike Dalhed and Matt Provost; sophomores Tommy May, Mitch Reed, Ryan Kelly, Jake Hanson, Victor Simones and Tony Lalani. Sophomore Kyle Olson and freshman Kevin Olund

The good news was that of the 12 regular varsity and junior varsity golfers on the Tiger boys team this spring, 11 saw enough varsity action to earn letters. The bad news was that a consistent lineup never evolved and the locals never quite managed to string together a run of quality performances. Farmington finished anywhere from fourth to seventh in seven Missota Conference tournaments and tied for sixth in the final team standings. The Tigers ranked 10th out of 12 teams at the Section 1AAA Championships.

also saw a lot of course time for the junior varsity this season. May ranked among the conference individual leaders for much of the season and despite a late season slide earned all-league honorable mention. May also advanced to the final round of section play and missed qualifying for the state meet by just four strokes. Holmes said he will miss the contributions of Beers as well as classmates Brady Akin and Sean Rice. With 10 returning letterwinners Holmes said he is confident his team will climb the Missota ladder next spring.
