As demand at food shelves continues to rise in Dakota County, area nonprofits are working together to improve access. Representatives from governmental agencies and nonprofits across the state, including the Eagan and Lakeville Resource Centers, gathered in Duluth on Aug. 13-15 for the second annual Food Access Summit, which addresses food access issues in Minnesota. “It’s not just accessing food, it’s accessing healthy food,” said Lisa Horn,

The Eagan and Lakeville Resource Centers provide six gardens in Dakota County in which low-income families can grow their own food. The gardens are part of the nonprofit’s Garden To Table program, which also includes gardening classes, cooking demonstrations and other events that promote healthy eating.

A diverse trio of business partners with a flair for drawing attention is spreading the gospel of Jamaican jerk cuisine. A Kingston native, a Soviet-born chef and a self-dubbed “Jewmaican” rapper from Minneapolis opened for business Aug. 10 in the Burnsville Center food court. The business, Pimento Jamaican Kitchen, is named for the key allspice used in the cooking and seasoning style known as Jamaican jerk. “Jamaicans have been jerking chicken since the time of the Maroons,” runaway slaves from whom he descended, said Kingston-born and raised partner Tomme Beevas, 34. Though some restaurants have jerk on the menu, Pimento Jamaican Kitchen is the only true Jamaican eatery in the Tomme Beevas of Pimento Jamaican Kitchen at Burnsville Center displayed some of the food court See PIMENTO, 16A business’ cuisine.

Child care plants farm to table program Initiative piloted at New Horizon Academy in Eagan aims at teaching children gardening, healthy eating by Jessica Harper SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

One local child care center is taking education beyond the classroom and into the garden. New Horizon Academy is expanding its Farm2NHA program, which introduces children to new locally grown foods, to all its Minnesota centers. The program was piloted last year at 13 cen-

ters, including three in Eagan with positive results, representatives say. “One of our primary goals is to teach kids where their food comes from,� said Desiree Goyette, assistant director at New Horizon Academy at 3510 Federal Drive in Eagan. The center cares for children ages six weeks to 12 years old. Preschool and school-

aged children were able to learn this lesson hands-on by planting a small flower and vegetable garden at the center and by visiting local farms. One of the primary goals of the program is to introduce children to new fresh foods in hopes they acquire a taste for them. About 84 percent of children at the center participated in the program, and of those who partici-

Apple Valley’s Enjoy restaurant changes hands After remodeling, eatery that opened in 2004 will reopen as Vivo by Andrew Miller SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Apple Valley’s popular Enjoy restaurant has closed temporarily for remodeling as the eatery transitions to new ownership and a new name. Enjoy owners Dan and Kay Shimek, who opened the restaurant at 15435 Founders Lane in 2004, have sold the business, and the restaurant management company Break Bread Hospitality, run by Twin Cities restaurateur Bob Tinsley, will now oversee operations. The business plans to reopen under the name Vivo. The doors to the restaurant were locked Monday morning and a notice posted at the front entrance informed potential patrons of the ownership change.

The restaurant will be closed for a period of time and re-open under a new name after a remodel, said Dan and Kay Shimek.

some indication of what prompted them to sell: “To properly be involved in the restaurant takes a lot of time, energy and sometimes money,” they stated. “We are at a point in our lives (Dan being 60+ and Kay being 30+) where we want to simplify our program and be able to visit the restaurant just as guests.” It is unclear when the

restaurant will reopen. Tinsley did not respond to a call from Sun Thisweek seeking comment. Break Bread Hospitality also operates the downtown Minneapolis eatery Zelo, as well as Bacio restaurant in Minnetonka. Email Andrew Miller at andrew.miller@ecm-inc.com.

Special session Sept. 9 to pass disaster relief bill by T.W. Budig SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Gov. Mark Dayton has called a disaster relief special legislative session for Sept. 9. Lawmakers will look to secure about $5 million in disaster relief for 18 counties, including Hennepin, Houston and Morrison, damaged by strong storms in June. President Barack Obama has already declared a disaster, freeing up Federal Emergency Management Agency dollars. The state must cover a portion of the cleanup costs to receive the federal funding. Dayton wants to include two other counties, Rock and Nobles, for special session disaster relief funding. That could increase state costs by about

$1 million. Although legislative leaders all indicated a willingness to consider repealing a controversial sales tax expansion to farm machinery repairs as part of the special session, closeddoor negotiations resulted in no agreement. Democrats and Republicans both suggested the other party was to blame. Dayton said he was personally disappointed that repeal of the repair tax wasn’t part of the special session agreement. Dayton indicated the provision in the tax bill had slipped by. Anyone who has watched the end of a legislative session, Dayton said, understands the rush of bills. “It’s not a perfect system,” Dayton said, when asked about future safeguards. “And I’m not a

perfect person.” House Tax Committee Chairwoman Ann Lenczewski, DFL-Bloomington, said the farm machinery repair tax had been discussed. Legislators were aware of it, she said. While Republican leaders have pushed for repeal of the repair tax and a warehouse tax on the storage of business-related goods, effective April 1, 2014, Dayton spoke of a “serious proposal” needing to be offered. That proposal did not come, Dayton said. Republican leaders spoke of a “reluctance” among Democrats for repealing the taxes. “We came in willing to do any or all,” House Minority Leader Kurt Daudt, R-Crown, said. But Daudt said Republicans could not accept us-

ing surplus state dollars, money that would go to paying back the school funding shift, to pay for repealing taxes. Senate Minority Leader David Hann, R-Eden Prairie, said there are many places in the state budget where cuts could be made to cover the cost. He had a list of budget proposals, said Daudt, he didn’t bother to share because he sensed Democrats were not interested. But everyone agreed it was unacceptable to use

disaster relief as a bargaining chip in negotiations, the two Republicans indicated. House Speaker Paul Thissen, DFL-Minneapolis, said committee hearings on the proposed special session legislation could begin next week. The one-day session will begin at 10 a.m. Sept. 9, with actual passage of the bill taking place later in the day after committee action. The disaster relief bill is to be finalized by Sept. 6.

No floor amendments, by agreement, will be taken during the session. Dayton said he and legislative leaders may explore ways to avoid convening special sessions in the future that deal with relatively small amounts of money. Preliminary assessment placed the June storm damage at about $18 million.

Opinion Problems plagued latest Minnesota statewide testing by Joe Nathan SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

It’s not surprising that some Minnesota educators are angry about how highstakes MCA testing operated during the past year and how some newspapers reported results. The rules changed, there were statewide computer “freezes,” and one of the state’s tests was much harder. Whether from suburbs like Hopkins, Minnetonka or Stillwater or high-performing urban charters like Friendship Academy, I have never heard such frustration. It’s time to revise how we are assessing students. “In an analysis of both online math and reading testing, a majority of Hopkins students needed to restart their testing at least once,” Hopkins Schools Superintendent John Schultz said. “The number of restarts some students needed to make ranged from two to 17 times. The online testing interruptions most often impacted our elementary students in grades 3-6. Our experience in testing young children leads me to believe that the frequent interruptions in the online testing may have caused our young students additional anxiety, frustration and lack of engagement in the task.” Farmington Schools Superintendent Jay Haugen, said: “It is really hard to say if there was an impact. It was more of

Sun Thisweek Columnist

Joe Nathan an administrative hassle than anything, since we needed to reschedule classes with limited (computer) lab space.” Edina Superintendent Ric Dressen wrote: “Edina administered the assessments via paper and pencil so did not experience any problems.” Minnetonka Superintendent Dennis Peterson concluded: “The frustration of students in being taken out of tests by the system throughout the testing period had a profound impact on their performance in Minnetonka. ... Many students were not able to show what they know about math on the MCA test due to circumstances beyond their control and that of the district.” Friendship Academy topped the Star Tribune’s “Beat the Odds” list of public schools with a high percentage of lowincome students who scored well on the math test. Seventy-two percent of its students were proficient on the elementary math test, 11 points higher than the state

average. But there were many problems with the online reading test. Datrica Chukwu, the school’s academic director, told me that the school’s students found the continued “computer freezing” to be “incredibly disruptive and frustrating.” The Minnesota Department of Education commissioned a study to see if computer slowdowns and crashes had a statewide impact. The report said “no.” But I think the experience of students suggests that the answer in some places was “yes.” In the past three years, both Minnesota’s statewide reading and math tests have been made harder to align with national standards. This happened a few years ago with the state’s math test, and it happened last year with Minnesota’s reading test. That’s not widely understood. This is a bit like measuring how many students can jump over a hurdle that is 2 feet high, and then the next year comparing how many students can jump over a hurdle that is 5 feet high. In an interview, Minnesota Commissioner of Education Brenda Cassellius noted: “Our kids did not get dumber overnight.” She agreed that the tests have become harder and that Minnesota’s math scores, on average, are higher now than

they were two years ago, the first year of the new, tougher exam. Moreover, there was a major change in testing procedures from 2011-12 to 2012-13. Students were allowed to take the statewide test up to three times in 2011-12, and districts could count their best score. This year, students could take the tests only once. Practice doesn’t always produce perfection – but it often produces improvement. Two of the state’s largest daily papers had large, top-of-the-page headlines that proclaimed, “State reading scores plummet” (Star Tribune) and “Minnesota math, reading scores slip” (Pioneer Press). Headlines must be short. But students and schools deserve a more comprehensive summary. Cassellius wisely does not want any more changes in state standards. But we also need a broader array of information about what students are learning. Some of the most important things can’t be measured by not-always-reliable online tests. Joe Nathan, formerly a Minnesota public school teacher and administrator, directs the Center for School Change. Reactions welcome, joe@centerforschoolchange.org.

‘Guardian Cap’ may help prevent football concussions by Don Heinzman SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

The season for grade-school tackle football turns our attention to the value of that sport and the subject of concussions. Chances are that most kids grades two through eight playing tackle football won’t suffer a concussion, but the number of such cases is rising. One national study suggests that 90 percent of grade-school players will not suffer a concussion playing football and 68 percent of those who do suffer a head injury return for the next game. The number of concussions reported is growing because parents and coaches are more aware of concussions, in part because a Minnesota law passed in 2010 requires that coaches learn more about concussions, their signs and treatment. Coaches believe that if players have the right equipment and exercise proper

Sun Thisweek Columnist

Don Heinzman tackling techniques, the chances of players getting concussions are minimal. All that said, parent Craig A. Hrkal, of Princeton, saw his seventh-grader and an opponent collide head-on during a kickoff return. His son fell to the ground and was taken out of the game, which ended his season. Later, he suffered daily headaches and missed some school days. Hrkal has decided to do something about these football concussions and has formed the Princeton Youth Sports Foundation, online at www.princetonysf. org. In looking for ways to prevent head

injuries, Hrkal found a company that sells a padded cover that fits over the helmet called a “Guardian Cap.” One goal of Hrkal’s foundation is to provide these cushion caps to 100 players from second through sixth grades this season. Hrkal has applied for grants to help pay for the caps. The question arises: Why allow second- and third-graders to play tackle football at all? Those in favor say these youngsters don’t tackle very hard and their odds of getting a concussion are slim, particularly if they are taught the right way to tackle. On the other hand, medical experts are becoming more concerned regarding head injuries and their effect on the brain. David King, executive director of Minnesota Brain Injury Alliance, says extra protection is good, but he doubts if it can completely prevent a concussion. The best prevention is to avoid those hard hits, because they can cause the

brain, which floats in fluid, to be pushed against the solid surface of the skull. Meanwhile, coaches of grade-level football say all this talk about concussions is taking a toll on the number of parents who let their kids play football. Parents would be wise to talk to their children’s coaches and determine how well they teach tackling and how aware they are of signs of concussions and their treatment. This month at Princeton, young football players will be wearing those padded covers over their helmets. The verdict on the pads is still out, but it’s worth a try, and parents and coaches will be watching. Don Heinzman is a columnist for ECM Publishers and a member of the ECM Editorial Board.

Letters Are dog parks safe for dogs? To the editor: As a dog owner, I question the safety of our dogs running unleashed at public dog parks. With generous donations and city-sponsored dog parks maybe a godsend for dogs and dog owners, I question the dogs that are allowed to roam free with no questions asked. Are all dogs up-to-date with shots? Do we know if all dogs don’t bite? Do all dogs know how to play with other dogs? What safety is in place to make sure that no accidents happen? It relies on pet owners to use the park on an honor system; I question the integrity of the dog owner to be responsible for their dog’s actions. My 16-year-old took our dog, Lily, a 1-yearold malti-poo, to the park Thursday, Aug. 8 at 6 p.m. She has gone to the Alimagnet Dog Park many times before. Well,

on this evening, our dog got attacked by a husky. As my daughter ran to Lily, the husky’s owner just reprimanded her dog and told my daughter to take Lily to the hospital. The husky’s owner did not give my daughter her name or phone number. My daughter was in shock and did not think to ask these questions. How irresponsible is the dog owner to bring a dog that is untrained to play with other dogs and dishonest enough to not leave her name and phone number. The dog owner should be responsible for her dog and its action. I equate this to a hit-and-run. Where is the law here? She needs to own up to her actions and the actions of her dog. Lily had four broken ribs, a puncture and contusion to her lungs. She spent two nights in the hospital. She is on antibiotics, pain killers and antiinflammatory medication. What was to be an evening stroll at the dog park

turned into a nightmare dash to the veterinarian due to irresponsible actions of one dog owner. How many dogs could be bitten before we realize we need better guidelines of dog park users? Does Lily deserve this? JAYANTHI GREBIN Burnsville

How can a Christian say “no”? To the editor:

Many times I hear someone retort, “How can that person be a Christian?” The criterion for being a true Christian is one thing: You believe that Jesus Christ is our God and Savior. It’s that simple. All sorts of people can be Christians, even those that you would not expect. Jesus was crucified next to a confessed thief. Jesus befriended Mary Magdalene whose reputation was of the worst a woman could carry. Yet we know that they believed. How can someone be Christian and exhibit behaviors that disregard other people? How can a Christian See LETTERS, 5A

SUN THISWEEK - Burnsville - Eagan August 30, 2013 5A

by Andrew Miller SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Charlie Novack’s Eagle Scout service project was about more than just shovels and mulch. For four days last week, the member of Eaganbased Boy Scout Troop 345 led a team of nearly 80 volunteers – other scouts, parents, even a crew of Navy servicemen – in a beautification project at Fort Snelling National Cemetery. The volunteers added mulch around more than 700 trees throughout the massive 436-acre Minneapolis cemetery Aug. 21-24, with crews working from about 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day. Novack said he chose the project as a tribute to his godfather, Mark We-

ber. Weber, a lieutenant colonel in the Minnesota National Guard and a Rosemount resident, was interred at Fort Snelling National Cemetery on June 13 after a three-year battle with cancer. “Mark loved to landscape – he had his own garden, and he had a huge mulch pile in his driveway,” said Novack, 14, who will be a freshman at Eagan High School this fall. The service project was one of the final steps needed for Novack to earn the rank of Eagle Scout, the highest rank attainable in the Boy Scouts of America. In addition to his service project, he still needs one more merit badge – Personal Management – to earn the Eagle rank. The cemetery provided

the equipment and mulch for the project, as well as access to a golf cart. And each day the Novack family provided food for the legion of volunteers – sloppy joes one day, spaghetti another. On the final day, the Novacks and the volunteers held a moment of silence beside Weber’s tombstone. “David (Charlie’s dad) and Mark were best friends since preschool, and they were like brothers,” said Charlie’s mom, Polly Novack. “Charlie wanted to do his Eagle project before Mark died, but that wasn’t possible, so instead he did it in honor of Mark.” Email Andrew Miller at andrew.miller@ecm-inc.com.

To the editor: Tad Johnson’s Aug. 23 story titled “Ridership numbers grow on Red” was rather eye-opening. Daily ridership at 835 each weekday with 130 trips per day works out to an average of fewer than seven passengers per bus. And the goal at year’s end is eight! No wonder the windows are heavily tinted, so you are unable to see the buses are virtually empty. And we spent $112 million setting this up. What is the operating cost for each passenger carried? As Charlie Brown would say, “Good grief.”

To the editor: A domo arigato. Danke. Do sia, and thank you. Burnsville police and festival representatives estimate nearly 2,100 guests visited Nicollet Commons Park to celebrate this year’s seventh annual International Festival of Burnsville. Survey results released this month applaud the abundance of quality entertainment, food vendors, familyfriendly cultural art activities and sponsor booths, as well as lively cultural exhibits and unique art displayed within Burnsville’s Performing Arts Center. Many thanks to a truly exceptional volunteer planning committee whose members gave their time to pursue sponsors, coordinate entertainment, secure food and beverage vendors, organize cultural display booths and art activities, or diligently tend to publicity, raffle, grounds, logistics tasks, treasury, and a heap of administrative tasks. A few years ago, a group of Burnsville residents, school volunteers and city representatives gathered to talk about how to celebrate the diverse cultures of Burnsville, and how to help us better know each other as neighbors in a growing community. Since 2006, the festival has impacted our community by bringing us together, and long after Saturday’s festivities, our guests recall visits to vendor booth and cultural displays, dancing at sunset, and how much they learned about their global neighbors’ unique cultures and traditions. Kudos to our platinum

event sponsors, including Comcast, the city of Burnsville, Minnesota’s Clean Water, Land and Legacy Amendment, and the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council for its grant dollars or sponsorships. To our gold sponsors, we shout “muchas gracias.” We’re also grateful to our bronze sponsors. A kind “Shukran” to our volunteers, including those from the Burnsville Lions Club, and to the BCTV14 crew for bringing about a delightful multicultural experience.

– who believes in love and charity, whose religion is based upon God’s Son who cared(s) about all people, all, especially those who are outcasts, unclean, and needs help the most – say “no” to those people? How can a Christian say “no” to our young people who need education, or special education, or affordable secondary education; individuals who have served our country; or people who need health care? How can a Christian say “no” to saving our youth from drive-by shootings and guns in schools? Moneymakers such as the NRA dictate to our lawmakers, so guns can’t be controlled, not even background checks so that guns are not put into the hands of the incompetent or dangerous. That doesn’t mean we want you to give up your guns. It means we want them used for nonviolent activity. How can a Christian say “no” to allowing every woman the right to choose for herself about her own body? What she chooses may not be your choice, or mine, but America is about giving rights, not taking them. It’s not difficult to be a Christian and a Democrat. These two philosophies are not in conflict. They both manifest goodness by wanting and helping people to live the very best they can. I am quite certain that is what Jesus wants. That is what the DFL stands for. So the question still stands, “Do we act like Christians?” Or are we shutting out others by allowing our elected officials to say “no,” when we really want to say “yes.”

Thanks for another successful International Festival

Education Orchard Lake’s Impact Academy has waiting list Lakeville School Board urges caution against fast expansion by Laura Adelmann SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

There is a waiting list of students interested in joining Orchard Lake Elementary’s Impact Academy, but program expansion is on hold for now. Lakeville School Board members reiterated their preference to wait for parent reviews and student achievement data before expanding the multi-age classroom concept to more grades. New Orchard Lake Elementary Principal Marilynn Smith said there is a waiting list to join Impact

Academy in all K-3 classrooms where it is offered, including 17 second-graders, and there has been only one opening available all summer due to a move. When Impact Academy’s open-space, integrated studies approach to learning was approved for Orchard Lake Elementary in March, the board had requested a business plan detailing implementation for adding fourth grade in 2014-15 and fifth grade in 2015-16 at the school. Smith told board members at an Aug. 27 meeting it would be better to draft

both grades together next school year, to allow better grouping. “To implement fourthgrade only next year kind of leaves me with a standalone classroom for a year that doesn’t have a partner,” Smith said. “I would like to try to look at possibly doing a fourth and fifth grade, because it allows me to have a multiage classroom at that level.” Without opening it to fifth-graders, Smith said fourth-graders would not experience “an authentic Impact Academy” until they age up and the next

group comes in. She said two fifth-grade classrooms have a wall that opens to accommodate the larger class size. “I feel it’s what’s best for growing the program K-5,” Smith said. “It brings us to a place where we have a full continuum.” Long-term, the Impact Academy concept may expand to the entire school and eventually go districtwide, Superintendent Lisa Snyder said. School Board members cautioned against quick expansion until they have proof of how the program is working.

Board Member Michelle Volk also reiterated the board’s request for an Impact Academy business plan, asking that it include a costs and a marketing plan to help plan next steps. She also cited concerns about creating an imbalance at the school before demand is there. “We have to remember we have a whole group of people who didn’t choose it for whatever reason, or didn’t get in,” she said. Board Member Bob Erickson agreed, stating he is hopeful the district does not “leap to phase

three.” “I want you to be looking forward, but not yet,” he told Smith. Board Chair Roz Peterson encouraged Smith to gauge student and parent response and plan for next steps, but wait before pushing onward with the program. “We are, I think, fully on board, assuming we’re going to get the response we’re anticipating, which is going to be positive and student learning will flourish,” she said.

Lakeville’s Snyder gets review, raise, bonus by Laura Adelmann SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Lakeville School District Superintendent Lisa Snyder received her contracted raise amount, and received additional performance pay below the maximum amount after her review by the School Board. Snyder was awarded $5,367 of the maximum $7,000 in performance pay and her salary will increase

The bonus is based on a performance evaluation system rating Snyder’s leadership in areas including educational innovation, resource realignment and communications, which is included in her three-year contract in Lakeville that ends June 30, 2014. In a brief statement, Board Chair Roz Peterson Lisa Snyder from $175,000 to $180,000 noted Snyder’s accomthis school year, according plishments that included realigning systems to imto the district.

prove efficiency and reducing next year’s budget by over $3 million. She also cited Snyder’s implementation of the district’s new online learning program and Snyder’s strategic direction toward a world-class district with measurable results for the “21st century learner.” Peterson described Snyder as “effective, enthusiastic and focused communicator who has the ability to work with a wide range

of personalities.” She said Snyder has made a commitment to improving district twoway communications with stakeholders through quarterly newsletters, surveys, social media and an enhanced website. “Dr. Snyder is a creative problem-solver who genuinely cares about the success of our students and works tirelessly on the challenges that face the district,” Peterson said.

Snyder was hired in 2011 at a salary of $169,500 (pro-rated to $148,000 for the 10-anda-half months she worked during that fiscal year). Last year, she was awarded the full $7,000 lump-sum bonus. Snyder previously was superintendent of public schools in Merrill, Wis. Laura Adelmann is at laura. adelmann@ecm-inc.com.

District 196 outscores state ACT average

Superintendent to deliver State of the Schools

District 196 high school students scored a full point higher than the nationleading Minnesota average on the ACT college admissions test in 2013, according to test results released Aug. 21. The ACT average composite score for District 196 students is 24.0 compared to 23.0 for the state. For the eighth consecutive year, Minnesota had the highest average score among states where more than half of all graduates took the test.

Lakeville Area School District Superintendent Lisa Snyder will give the State of the Schools address Wednesday, Sept. 11, during the Lakeville Area Chamber of Commerce General Membership

The national ACT average composite score for 2013 is 20.9 out of a possible 36. In District 196, the ACT average composite score is based on the results of 1,666 students who took the test last year.

Special education has a new program for junior and senior high students called Practical Assessment Exploration System. Students get paid simulated money to explore hundreds of jobs in a classroom converted to a work environment. Students become the employees and punch a time-clock while their teachers act as bosses. There are five work areas: business/marketing, consumer services, construction/industrial,

computer technology and processing/production. The program component is part of CORE, located at Nicollet Junior High, and supports the transition from school to adult life for students with individual education program plans. The district’s recycling and composting program will expand to Gideon Pond and Vista View elementaries, Burnsville High School, the Administrative Services Center and Diamondhead Education Center. It was implemented at all other schools last year. It’s good for the environment and saves money on garbage disposal, the district says. A string instrument

program will start at Rahn Elementary School of Arts and Technology. It will be based on the successful strings programs at Harriet Bishop Elementary and Eagle Ridge Junior High. At Neill Elementary, technology, including interactive white boards, projectors, iPads and document cameras, will be incorporated in every classroom. Co-teaching opportunities are increasing at almost all grade levels, including special education intervention and English as a second language. The school’s kitchen serving line has been updated.

Preparing for the age wave Nursing homes adapt, update with changing expectations, needs by Howard Lestrud SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Everyone wishes to be independent, whether they are 2 or 102 years old. The way we age has changed considerably over the years. Many people live to an older age and many are able to maintain independent, busy lifestyles to an advanced age. The greater share of Americans are choosing to age in place, opting to live in their own homes as long as possible. Nursing homes were once regarded as the last stop for an elderly person. That is no longer true, with nursing homes and other elderly care facilities offering not only skilled nursing care but rehabilitation care that often returns them to their homes in an independent atmosphere. According to the United States Department of Health and Human Services, those 65 and older number 39.6 million in 2009. These seniors represented 12.9 percent of the U.S. population, about one in every eight Americans. That figure is expected to represent 19 percent of the population by 2030. It is projected nationally that by 2030, there will be about 72.1 million older persons, more than twice the number in 2000. By 2020, it is expected there will be more seniors turning 65 or older than students in our Minnesota school systems. This all means there will be more demand for elderly care options in the coming years. Assisted living facilities and independent living apartments are choices that many of the elderly are choosing today. Elderly care directly affects many people, whether they are among elderly or whether they are caring for elderly family members. It is difficult to know where to begin, in describing nursing home care, said Loren Colman, assistant commissioner for continuing care for the Minnesota Department of Human Services. He has held that post since 2003 and has directed efforts of many programs that serve aging and adult services, disability services, deaf and hard of hearing services and nursing facilities. Colman has provided focus and leadership for Transform 2010, designed to prepare Minnesota for the age wave of retiring baby boomers. He considers himself a boomer. Colman has provided additional focus on con-

Loren Colman sumer-directed initiatives that will allow Minnesotans to have more decision-making options on where, who and what services they need. Other interests have been employment and housing options for people with disabilities. Minnesota DHS administers funds to nursing homes through the Medical Assistance program and is also responsible for developing and interpreting policy concerning nursing home services, quality of care and rates. Policies are ultimately decided by the Minnesota Legislature. Lawmakers look to the DHS for recommendations. Minnesota has 375 licensed and Medicaidcertified nursing facilities with 30,468 beds in active use as of Aug. 1, 2012. Of all Minnesota nursing facilities, 28 percent are for-profit, 61 percent are nonprofit and 11 percent are owned by a government entity. Occupancy rate of active beds for the year ending Sept. 30, 2011, was 90.2 percent. Median length of stay in a nursing facility is 27 days. Changing of consumer preferences and implementation of incentives and restrictions by the state has led to a 37 percent reduction of the state’s nursing home industry in the past 25 years. Since there is more of an emphasis for home and community-based services, approximately 11,300 nursing facility beds have been closed since Oct. 1, 1999. Minnesota DHS reports $2.32 billion was spent on nursing home care in fiscal year 2011. That’s not just state funds but a combination of state, federal and private-paying dollars, Colman said. It represents about a third from state appropriations and medical assistance, a third from federal assistance and a third from private pay, Medicare and insurance. Colman says the use of nursing home facilities

is changing. Many communities will attest to the fact that nursing homes have become a part of a spectrum of care, he said. At one time, nursing home care was the only opportunity for long-term care. Now, elderly care comes in a variety of forms – nursing homes, assisted living, in-home care and independent senior housing. Nursing homes have become more specialized, more focused on a particular service, Colman said. Transitional care, postacute care and rehabilitation care are now offered following hospital stays. Many facilities have become specialists in memory care or dementia care, Colman said. This leads to staff being trained differently to provide a high quality of service. Many facilities have been downsizing over the years, Colman said, to adjust to demands in communities. The nursing care has also become flexible, allowing residents to enjoy single or private rooms and have more of a neighborhood like environment, Colman explained. “They have been reinventing whom they serve and how they serve them,” he said. A number of nursing home facilities have closed in the state during recent years due to a variety of factors, usually, but not exclusively, due to outdated buildings and the facility requiring a substantial investment in upkeep. For some this has forced closure or consolidation into one new facility, Colman said. Many investments have been made in technology, with the acquisition of safety equipment, adoption of new electronic health records and addition of new call systems that allow employees to be more flexible and responsive to consumer needs. Colman said more investments have been made in upgrading the environment by providing more private space, which makes it easier to accommodate quality care. Investments have also been made, Colman said, in clinical technology that allows nurses and therapists to do a better job in rehabilitating people. New therapy areas, therapy pools and swimming pools for hydrotherapy have been added, he said. Wellness centers have also been introduced to the nursing home environment, Colman said. Nursing homes have become full-service pro-

viders to seniors in the community, offering wellness and swimming programs. Every older person, since the beginning of time, has always wanted to be independent, Colman said. This has become more of a focus strategy at DHS, he said, by consumer advocates who help individuals maximize independence. Seniors want to stay in their homes, Colman said, and wish to stay engaged by volunteering and being part of the family. “They want to live their lives,” he said. “This is a positive trend.” There does come a time, however, when seniors need support. That support may come from living in a nursing center for a short or extended time. Elderly care is also provided in a campus-like setting on the same property. It can feature nursing home beds, assisted living apartments and independent living apartments. It is then not necessary to change caregivers. Many care centers become fullservice senior care providers, Colman said. “We also have a different attitude emerging about seniors with the consumer being in charge. It used to be where the nursing home decided when a resident got up for breakfast, when the resident would watch TV and when to do anything during the day. Now, the consumer is in charge and decides when to have breakfast and even decides a menu.” Minnesota has nursing home facilities as small as 15 beds and as large as 500 beds, Minneapolis having the largest at the Veterans Home. The average nursing home facility has 80 beds, according to Colman. The largest concentration of nursing homes is in the Twin Cities seven-county metropolitan area. Hennepin and Ramsey counties have about a third of the beds in the state, Colman said. Looking to the future in nursing home care, Colman said he envisions these changes: • More downsizing of nursing homes. • More closures. • Continued growth in senior housing; it’s a bit saturated now, Colman said. • Different models of service will emerge. Seniors and boomers won’t be as interested in seniorspecific housing as we see it today, Colman predict-

Elderly care changes with the times by Howard Lestrud SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Elderly care has changed greatly in recent years and will continue to evolve, with the use of new technology in health care as one example. Some projections show that by 2020, there will be more people turning 65 or older than there will be children in Minnesota school systems. That means elderly care will become an even more important part of community services. Elderly care is the fulfillment of the special needs and requirements unique to senior citizens. This broad term umbrellas such services as assisted living, adult day care, long-term care, nursing home care, hospice care and home care. This series on elderly care in Minnesota will focus in the following areas. Part 1 – An overview on how the state is involved with nursing home care and elderly care, featuring commentary from Loren Colman, assistant commissioner for continuing ed. People will want to see more integrated settings. Seniors will desire to live with accessible services, such as banking, groceries and entertainment, within a reasonable distance to where they live. • Transportation is important to seniors. There are features in new cars that will extend the ability of individuals to drive. • Technology is yet to explode in how seniors receive support in the home, for example, there is emerging technology that monitors whether individuals are taking pills, getting the right food in their diet, going to the bathroom and getting up in the middle of the night. Some of this technology is now available in the homes and will help ensure that seniors remain independent and have the quality care they deserve, Colman said. The ability to communicate is very important to seniors as well as to boomers and younger people, Colman said. People now can communicate visually, and this allows seniors to be supported long-distance by their children, he added. How does the Minnesota DHS rate Minnesota nursing home care cen-

care at the Minnesota Department of Human Services. Part 2 – Legislative perspective will be provided by state Rep. Jim Abeler, R-Anoka, past chairman of the Health and Human Services Finance Committee, and by state Rep. Patti Fritz, DFL-Faribault, a licensed practical nurse who has served on the Health and Human Services Finance Committee. Other perspectives will be provided by Aging Services of Minnesota and by other lobbying groups. Abeler and Fritz have been active in crafting nursing home legislation. Part 3 – Continuum of care will be illustrated through a profile of a faith-based nursing home care center that has changed its traditional services; a faithbased program providing health, housing and support services for seniors and their families; and a site with a 120-bed rehabilitation and living center, along with 59 apartment units for independent and assisted living.

ters? Colman said he believes Minnesota has demonstrated a higher quality of care than what one may see in a number of other parts of the country. “Minnesota is very open to change, in improving and in providing several programs where we provide support to facilities to improve their outcomes,” Colman said. DHS works with nursing care facilities on report cards, which allow for ways to improve various elements of care. “We interview residents of nursing homes as part of our quality initiative,” Colman said. “Are they perfect?” he asked. “There are always areas to improve.” The Minnesota Legislature during the past session also did its part in providing some rate increases to nursing home facilities. A 5 percent increase was granted to nursing facilities across the board. A portion of that rate increase has to be dedicated to employee compensation and benefits. It is effective Sept. 1.

and external injuries and was airlifted to Regions Hospital. It was a traumatic accident for him and his family both physically and financially. While the doctors and therapists are helping him physically, friends and family are gathering to help them financially with a pair of fundraising events. Organizers are calling it “Jorden’s Journey.” The two events include bingo at 2 p.m. Sept. 7 and a beer bash/silent auction 7-10 p.m. Oct. 19 at Celts Pub in Farmington. Organizers hope to raise money to help defray the cost of Jorden’s rehabilitation and medical bills. Jorden spent 10 days in the hospital where he had surgery to remove his spleen. He also suffered a lung contusion and bruised pancreas. In the coming weeks, doctors told his mother Nicole Dencklau that he may need to have one of his kidneys removed. He also shattered his right an-

kle and left arm from the shoulder the elbow. He suffered road rash, head to toe, and he needed stitches on his head and ear. He figures his right arm went through the windshield and will likely have scaring for life. Jorden will be confined to a wheelchair for the next eight weeks while he attends four occupational therapy sessions a week to get him back on his feet. He won’t be able to go back to school until November. “We’re hoping to get a tutor from the school district and get Internet at home so he can take some online courses,” Dencklau said. His spirits also took a hit. Jorden was a member of the track team and he had plans of joining the Army when he was 18. “He’s let down,” Dencklau said. “He can’t be on a team as long as he has kidney issues. He swears he’ll never ride a bike again. He’s just disappointed that his whole life will be affected. Maybe one day he’ll run track

again, who knows. Maybe when he’s 17 he’ll have different dreams.” Dencklau had health insurance, but it’s not going to cover everything. Insurance didn’t cover the helicopter ride or the ambulance, Dencklau said, and there will be countless future co-pays and expenses. Since the accident, Dencklau she hasn’t been able to work while she takes care of her son. Jorden doesn’t remember anything, but he did learn a few valuable lessons. “I just hope people learn to wear their helmets,” Dencklau said. “I really hope people know that no matter how big or small you are, you can still be hit by a car.” Dencklau hopes to receive some good news soon. The fundraisers will certainly help. “It’s amazing,” she said. “They are the greatest people I know. I don’t know what I’d do without them.” Email Andy Rogers at andy.rogers@ecm-inc.com.

Squad car technology tracks vehicles Privacy debate continues on keeping surveillance data from license plate readers by T.W. Budig SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

To law enforcement, automatic license plate readers are an effective tool for nabbing suspects, returning stolen cars and investigating murders. Others view the technology, capable of capturing thousands of license plates per minute, as a potential electronic stalker. “There are no restrictions whatsoever,� American Civil Liberties Union Minnesota attorney Teresa Nelson said of law enforcement in Minnesota amassing license plate data. “That really concerns us.� Automatic license plate readers match license plate numbers against downloaded police “hot lists,� checking for stolen vehicles, missing persons, outstanding warrants and other items. The State Patrol uses a Minnesota Department of Public Safety’s Driver and Vehicle Services Division, National Crime Information Center and Bureau of Criminal Apprehension “hot list� database, according to documents obtained by the ACLU. Intimate activities of the innocent, as well as criminals, can be tracked, critics warn. The use of automatic license plate readers isn’t limited to big cities. They’re in the suburbs, too. The Washington County Sheriff’s Department uses two readers; the Bloomington Police Department has five squad cars equipped. Other suburban police departments, including the Inver Grove Heights and South St. Paul police departments in Dakota County, use license plate readers. The Minnesota State Patrol also has a squad car equipped with a reader. Minnesota Sheriffs Association Executive Director Jim Franklin said probably fewer than 20 departments in the state are using the technology. Minnesota Department of Public Safety Commissioner Ramona Dohman suggested that could grow. “I would say there are probably some agencies holding off, waiting to purchase the technology until they have a better understanding what they actually can do with it,� Dohman said. The number of license plates being read is huge.

Seniors interested in registering for the Lakeville Senior Center’s newest class are advised to bring a rubber nose. “As soon as you put a red nose on, you feel like a different person,” said Marilyn Bogen, a new member at the Lakeville Senior Center and its first clown class teacher. Bogen, 77, a retired drama and English teacher, said she always wanted to pursue clowning, and seized the opportunity this summer when the senior center needed a clown for the center’s pony rides during Pan-O-Prog. She got a costume, face paint and developed her alter ego: “Korbella,” named after her favorite brandy. “I’m spelling it with two L’s so I don’t get in trouble with Korbel brandy company,” Bogen said. She decided Korbella would be a happy clown, with a green and orange outfit and sparkling green hair. She knew she had made a successful full-clown transformation when the first child she encountered after donning her suit and makeup burst into tears. “I thought ‘Aha, I’m a success,’ ” Bogen said, although she immediately went up to the boy, took off her wig and nose, trying to reassure him she was a real person. “I wouldn’t have done that if there were a lot of people around,” Bogen said. “I just felt bad for the little boy.” As Korbella, Bogen is a happy-go-lucky, silly lady who is known to break into song. “I wanted to be a happy, outgoing clown,” Bo-

She said leaving friends behind in Florida after 25 years was traumatic. “I was scared to death,” she said of the move to be closer to family members. “All I knew up here was my family, and I was absolutely so sad and depressed. It was really hard leaving everybody after all those years.” Everything changed when she donated a baby grand piano to the Lakeville Senior Center, and Walter discovered Bogen’s talent for writing, singing and drama and invited her to join. “It’s been a life-saver for me,” Bogen said. “The senior center is how I met people and became active in the community. I don’t know what I would have done without the Lakeville Senior Center.” Clown Club classes start Sept. 17 and will meet Tuesdays at 1 p.m. at the Senior Center. Registration ends Sept. 10.

ences. The class, open to students age 50 and up, aims to be fun, interactive and include costuming, makeup application, body language, facial expressions, and balloon animal making. Bogen said being a clown allows people to express their “inner-self.” “In Florida, when I would write and direct plays, people would say they can’t do that, but you get them in a costume, and they become different people,” Bogen said. “They come right out of their shell.” For Bogen, being a clown has allowed her a Laura Adelmann is at laura. place to fit in at the Lake- adelmann@ecm-inc.com. ville Senior Center, which has become a big part of

Man charged may have had other criminal sexual conduct victims An 18-year-old Northfield man who was charged on Aug. 15 with two counts of third-degree criminal sexual conduct may have had other victims, according to a release from Dakota County Attorney James Backstrom. According to the complaint, Michael Lyle Stucky Jr. “friended” a young girl on Facebook and eventually appeared at her home with the purpose of engaging in sexual activity. Information obtained during the course of the investigation has led police to believe there could be other victims. “Social media and networking sites are an important part of our daily lives,” Rosemount Police Chief Eric Werner said in

a press release. “It’s unspeakable to know the technology is being used to prey on children or commit other crimes. Internet crimes are more complex and private, making the community’s help even more important.” Werner asks that those with information about others who may have been victimized to contact Rosemount Police Det. Julie Rauenhorst at 651-3222001 immediately. “It is very troubling to see social networking sites used in this manner,” Backstrom said. “This predatory behavior targeting children over the Internet is a far bigger problem than most parents realize. Parents need to speak to their children about this issue and encourage the

reporting of any inappropriate Internet communication.” Backstrom urged parents to monitor their child’s Internet use. To assist parents with online safety resources, go to the Jacob Wetterling Resource Center website at www.jwrc.org, or contact Monica Jensen of the Dakota County Attorney’s Office at 651-4384440. Stucky’s next court appearance is set for Sept. 10 in Hastings. Bail in the amount of $75,000 without conditions ($30,000 with conditions) was set by Dakota County District Court Judge Patrice Sutherland. – Tad Johnson

Blaze closes front of the net Girls soccer team yet to allow a goal by Mike Shaughnessy SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Burnsville started the season at No. 6 in the state Class AA girls soccer poll and through two games did nothing to suggest that the ranking wasn’t justified. The Blaze drubbed Centennial 4-0 in its season opener and played to a scoreless tie against Edina, the team that ended Burnsville’s 2012 season in the section playoffs. The team went into 2013 with heightened expectations after going 13-5 last season. Several starters were coming back, and Burnsville anticipated the return of forward Alyssa Blahnik, who missed the 2012 season because of a knee injury. But Blahnik, who was the leading scorer on Burnsville’s 2011 state Class AA runner-up team, might be the state’s unluckiest player. She has had another knee injury Eagan’s Madeline McNeil (3) and Celia Bertsch go up to block a shot by Saskia and is not expected to play VanRiessen of Minneapolis Southwest during a non-conference volleyball match this fall, meaning she is Tuesday night at Eagan. The Wildcats, who are ranked third in Class 3A, won their likely to miss her entire juseason opener in straight sets. (Photo by Rick Orndorf) nior and senior seasons of

Wildcats getting ready for SSC Girls soccer team outscores first two opponents 11-1 by Mike Shaughnessy SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Obarski views playing in it not as an ordeal, but a privilege. “The conference is so fun to play in,” he said. “There are so many good players and all the teams are well coached. You can never take a night off.” The Wildcats were 8-8-2 overall last season. Not having a winning record is unusual for the Eagan program, and it is looking to bounce back. Captains Roselyn Anderson, Rachel Wall and Taylor Kenealy will play a big part in what Eagan does this year. Anderson is a senior returning at midfield and Wall is a junior defender. Kenealy, a sophomore, moves from defense to forward. Kelli Wickard, another senior, is expected to be a mainstay on defense and help out sophomore Hannah Pavek, the Wildcats’ new central defender. “We had quite a few kids return to the varsity, but not many of them had a lot of experience,” Obarski said. But the talent is evident. Several of the Wildcats played for the Eagan Wave Under-16 Premier team during the summer. The Wildcats still are sorting out their situation in goal. Both goalkeepers, junior Ashley Patyk and sophomore Jordyn Clark, are new to the varsity but have performed well so far, Obarski said. Eagan also can expect a dash of speed from sophomore Maddie Gourley, who qualified for the state track and field meet in sprints the last two seasons. She didn’t play much soccer over the summer because of track commitments but likely will have an expanded role with the soccer team this fall, Obarski said. Even though Eagan was just .500 overall last year, the Wildcats went 5-31 in the rugged South Suburban. Eagan plays North in its South Suburban opener but won’t see Burnsville or Eastview until the final week of the regular season in early October.

Eagan defeated its first two girls soccer opponents by a combined 111, which might lead some to think the Wildcats were fattening their record against overmatched non-conference opponents. But that wasn’t their intent, coach Mark Obarski said. The Wildcats are trying to get ready for the rigorous South Suburban Conference schedule, and the first two games against Rochester Mayo and Rogers served their purpose despite the lopsided scores (6-0 against Mayo, 5-1 against Rogers). “Rochester Mayo was an athletic team – fast, and moved the ball well,” Obarski said. “Rogers didn’t have as much speed, but their ball skills were good and they played a really physical game. They were completely different opponents, but both did things we’ll see when we play teams from our conference.” Also, if the Wildcats were trying to line up easy non-conference games they wouldn’t have scheduled Woodbury, a perennial Minnesota power ranked fourth in the Class AA preseason poll. Eagan was to play Woodbury on Tuesday but the game was one of many across Minnesota to be postponed because of excessive heat. They’ll try to make it up later in the season if the teams can find a compatible open date on their schedules. After a game at Duluth East on Thursday, the Wildcats dive into the conference portion of their schedule at 5 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 3, at No. 2-ranked Lakeville North. The Panthers are one of three South Suburban teams – Burnsville and Eastview are the others – ranked in the top nine in Class AA.

high school soccer. That will put some pressure on players such as senior forward Lindsey Coleman, who delivered last year with a team-leading 12 goals. Abby Soderholm, another senior, had four goals and 15 assists last season. Only six of the 19 players on the Blaze’s varsity roster are seniors. Besides Coleman and Soderholm, the 12th-graders are defenders Betsy Peterson and Hannah Keirstead, and midfielders Amanda Hartmann and Anna Lehnen. Keirstead, playing forward last season, scored 11 goals and Hartmann had 10. To win frequently this season, the Blaze needs contributions from a talented group of juniors and sophomores. Against Centennial, sophomores scored three of the team’s four goals, with Lauren Lafavre getting two and Ashley St. Aubin getting one. Junior goalkeeper Darby Lofthus made 15 saves in the first two games without allowing a goal. The Blaze is scheduled to play at fourth-ranked Woodbury in a non-conference game at 5 p.m. Friday.

The South Suburban Conference portion of the schedule begins Tuesday, Sept. 3, with a 5 p.m. home game against Bloomington Kennedy. Two other SSC teams were ranked in the state’s top 10 in the preseason – Lakeville North at No. 2 and Eastview at No. 9. Both teams reached the state tournament last season, with North finishing in third place. Burnsville plays Eastview and North in a span of three days, with the Blaze going to Eastview on Sept. 17 and Lakeville North visiting Burnsville on Sept. 19.

Boys soccer Burnsville’s scheduled home game against Owatonna on Tuesday was postponed because of excessive heat, leaving the Blaze’s record at 1-1. Burnsville lost to Centennial 3-0 in its season opener before defeating Northfield 3-0 on Aug. 24.

Lightning eyes return to dome Boys soccer starts 2-0 by Mike Shaughnessy SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

The elements seem to be conspiring against Eastview as it tries to mold a team that can contend for another state boys soccer championship. But the Lightning has dealt with adversity before. It was almost a year ago when, about midway through the 2012 season, Eastview had more ties (five) than victories (four). The Lightning did not appear to be a threat for the state title, even though it had just one loss at the time. But then the team won 11 of its last 12 games and sprinted to its first Class AA championship. A little heat and wind won’t slow down the players, senior captain Pierce Erickson said. Still, “we’d like to come together as a team a little earlier than we did last year,” he said. “We know we can be a good team.” Eastview won its first two games of the season last week, shutting out Roseville 1-0, then defeating Cretin-Derham Hall 2-1 on Saturday in a game where a 30 mph south wind dictated play. The team working into the wind struggled to create offense; all three goals were scored by the team playing downwind.

Eastview defender Colin Campbell controls the ball in his team’s 2-1 victory over Cretin-Derham Hall. (Photo by Mike Shaughnessy) “When you play a game like that, there’s not much you can do” when going into the wind, Eastview coach Scott Gustafson said. “Right now, we’re trying to focus on our defense. We graduated a lot of players from last year’s team, so we’ll start there and hope that playing good defense will lead to some (scoring) chances for us.” Eastview returns starting goalkeeper Kyle Lamott, who made perhaps the biggest play in the Cretin-Derham Hall game by stopping a penalty kick that, if successful, would have tied the score. One of Gustafson’s challenges this season might be finding playing time for sophomore keeper Sean Teske, who the coach says is good enough to be a var-

sity starter. Senior Sam Fluegge is expected to anchor the defense. Juniors Jacob Wilson and Matt Kratz also will be on defense. Senior Jack Teske and sophomore Andrew Tuthill are returning midfielders, with senior Brandon Cordova and ninthgrader Christian Lutton also expected to see time there. Erickson is the most experienced returning forward. Brett Ladoux, a junior, is among others who will get playing time up front. “We can score goals, and we’ve played good defense in our first couple of games,” said Erickson. “Now we have to show we can do it against the other teams in our (South Suburban) conference.”

Mid-County Co-op hires Lakeville man

As Mid-County Coop’s new energy sales representative, Jim Walker of Lakeville is “energetic” about serving the fuels, lubricants, and propane delivery needs of Cologne and the surrounding area. “I’ve been meeting farmers and commercial customers, and I’m looking forward to working with them,” said Walker, whose first day was Aug. 14. Walker has 15 years of experience in the transportation industry, and is a certified commercial and industrial petroleum products specialist. At Mid-County Co-op, his

job involves enhancing marketing efforts and attending to sales needs of the energy division. “Mid-County Co-op has a very personable group of people,” Walker said. “When I walked in, I felt like I was home. I’m already making some great friends who share similar interests.” One of Walker’s interests is fishing in “both soft and hard water,” i.e. summer fishing and ice fishing. An avid outdoorsman, Walker also enjoys waterfowl hunting, golf, and hockey, and he serves as a coach for youth hockey in Lakeville.

When he’s not on the move, Walker can be found reading – usually something by Vince Flynn, David Baldacci, or James Patterson – or spending time with his family. “I am married to Tammy Walker, and we have two awesome children: Emily, 13; and Josh, 11,” Walker said. “We’re building a new home in Lakeville.” Mid-County Co-op was founded in 1935 as a petroleum product supplier for the Carver County area, and it serves multiple counties with a convenience store, agronomy division, energy department

with fuels, lubricants, and propane delivery service; and an auto, truck and tire repair center. More about MidCounty Co-op is at www. midcountycoop.com.

BRT won’t spur development Lakeville council considers chicken-or-egg options by Laura Adelmann SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Lakeville City Council members pondered transit-oriented development as a chicken-or-egg concept at an Aug. 26 work session. Should Lakeville spend tax dollars and staff time to plan and encourage high-density development on Cedar Avenue’s bus line or work or with developers once bus rapid transit service is expanded to the city? Lakeville’s 181st Street Station is not slated to receive station-to-station BRT service until 2020. Developers are also not flocking to build housing and businesses along the BRT corridor, according to the Metro Red Line Market and Development Study draft presented by Kimley-Horn planner William Reynolds. To drive high-density development along the corridor, city officials are being asked to consider actions and investments. “The Red Line is not going to drive development by itself, that’s what developers are telling us.” Reynolds said. He said light rail is seen as permanent, so developers “feel safe” developing along those rail lines. Although BRT operates along dedicated shoulders with millions of taxpayer dollars invested, Reynolds said developers do not see that same permanency. To encourage transitoriented development, Reynolds and Joe Morneau, transit specialist with the Dakota County Office of Transit, are urging Red Line cities to market it to developers and users alike. Lakeville is the first of cities along the Cedar Av-

enue Bus Rapid Transit corridor (Red Line) to receive the transit-oriented development presentation. Council members were encouraged to promote Red Line ridership and change the city’s traditional development pattern. Lakeville is unique among the Red Line cities because its 181st Street Station is surrounded by undeveloped farm land, a situation the planners said allows a blank slate for the city to implement TODsupportive plans and policies in hopes of spurring high-density development around the station. Reynolds suggested Lakeville’s updated comprehensive plan earmark development around the 181st Street Station for high-density housing and street-level businesses connected with hiking and biking trails. The concept would require smaller block sizes, tighter intersections, more hiking and biking paths, possibly funded through new taxing mechanisms and policy changes that encourage transit-oriented development. “In the station areas themselves, we need infrastructure, particularly ped and bike, access to the transit stations,” Reynolds said. He said the challenge for Lakeville is “preserving” land around the transit stop before “some of the market forces that might drive non-TOD development” buy land in the area. Recommendations for Lakeville include forming partnerships with landowners and cities along the corridor, and development of a TOD Special Area Plan that would allow increased densities around the station.

Playing thru Sept 21!

“Priority” and “catalyst” development sites around transit stations were also promoted, like Eagan’s $100 million Paragon Outlet Mall site, a 20year project that involved the Eagan City Council, Dakota County Community Development Agency and other partners. Reynolds said increased affordable housing is a great way to encourage development of houses without cars, and advocated for the city to incentivize transit and bike use. New finance tools, such as expanding the authority for special assessments, tax-increment financing and creating a “Special Services District,” were also suggested. Special Service Districts are areas in which property owners pay additional taxes to fund services like landscaping, sidewalk maintenance, security and local business advertising. Reynolds and Morneau also urged a corridor-wide partnership between Dakota County and the Red Line cities of Bloomington, Eagan, Apple Valley and Lakeville to forge and market an identity for the bus line, potentially develop a tax district along it and encourage car-less development around it. High-density housing in Lakeville is proposed to include a mix of townhomes, apartments, condos and small-lot single family homes. City Council Member Kerrin Swecker said city investment in development “has to be development-driven.” Reynolds said there is growing interest and developers see a lot of promise as developers are “getting around” the idea of mixed use, high-density development surrounded by lower density use. “It’s a competitive marketplace,” Reynolds said. “We do have a limited supply of those TOD developers, so there’s sort of a need to reach out and market to them.” Reynolds said transit services may come earlier than planned if LakeSee TRANSIT, 15A

BOOK, from 1A book he co-authored with his wife, fellow farming enthusiast Nancy A. Fredrickson. Gordon and Nancy grew up in Scott County in the New Market area. Gordon’s family lived on a dairy farm, and Nancy’s family lived in New Market, population 200 at the time. Even though Nancy was a “town kid” and Gordon was a “farm kid,” their collaboration on a book about harvesting grain in 1950 is part of a natural progression of their lives together. The farming in their blood surfaced early in their marriage during Gordon’s first teaching job at Chokio-Alberta High School in western Minnesota. Because the area offered no jobs for Nancy, they decided to buy 160 aces where they could raise cattle, hogs, and grain. Because Gordon worked days and often stayed late after school directing plays, Nancy handled the chores during the week. She raised calves, fed cattle, and farrowed hogs, and she managed a large garden, baked homemade bread, and drove a tractor so she could help with the fieldwork. This farm experience reconnected both of them to their shared rural roots and even today gives them a common inspiration as they produce books about farm heritage. The book’s illustrations were drawn and painted by Minnesota artist Robert Williams, who has lived most of his life on a farm in south central Minnesota. Williams says rural scenes, like those in this book, are his favorite to paint. The book, which is divided into three parts, begins with Fredrickson’s dedication to the men, women and children who worked the fields in past harvests, and to all the farmers of today whose crops will continue to provide food for the nation and the world. Part one: “A Farm Country Harvest: A Story of Threshing in 1950,” is a children’s story narrated by 10-year-old Jimmy Carlson. In it he describes the work that needs to be done on the farm during harvest time when a threshing ma-

The tale begins with the kids helping get the grain ready for the harvest. As the men are harvesting the grain, the women are busy cooking lunch and then dinner. Part Two: “A Farm Country Harvest: Photographs of Past Harvests,” features a collection of old photographs of people threshing in the late 1800s and early 1900s. The photos are accompanied by captions and explanations of the various steps in the harvesting process. Nancy Fredrickson says she really enjoyed gathering all the images. “It was so much fun working on this project with Gordy,” she said. “I got to meet a lot of people, hear a lot of stories and see some really interesting pictures.” There are more than 100 historic photos in the book. Some depict farming activities on the Fredrickson family farm when Gordon was a boy. Others were provided by historical societies and people the Fredricksons know. There are photos from Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa and North Dakota in the book. Part Three: “A Farm Country Harvest: Annual Celebrations of Harvest Heritage,” includes a list of all the different threshing festivals held throughout Minnesota, and features photos from several of them. “A Farm Country Harvest” is the fifth book in the Farm Country Tales collection. The other books in the series include “A Farm Country Christmas Eve,” “A Farm Country Halloween,” “A Farm Country Thanksgiving” and “A Farm Country Picnic.” All five books are about life on a Minnesota farm and told through the eyes of 10-year-old Jimmy Carlson, a character Fredrickson says is based on himself as a boy. “I have plans for 20

books in the series in all,” said Fredrickson, who adds that the next title will be “A Farm Country Silo Filler.” It is scheduled for release in 2015. Fredrickson’s other published books include “If I Were a Farmer: Nancy’s Adventure,” “If I Were a Farmer: Field Work,” “If I Were a Farmer: Tommy’s Adventure” and “What I Saw on the Farm.” “My goal with each of my books is threefold,” Fredrickson said. “I am trying to capture farm heritage, farm pride and agricultural literacy. It is my hope that through a combination of the stories and performances I do, I will be able to help people understand more about their food and where it comes from.” In his review, retired farmer and current threshing machine restoration enthusiast Ron Lund offers Fredrickson very high praise. “The 1950s fictional story is perfect,” Lund wrote “I loved it. I laughed as I read it and remembered doing those things during threshing as a boy.” Carolyn Van Loh, writer for “The Land and Farm Wife in Westbrook, Minn.,” said Fredrickson has put together a book that is sure to be treasured by anyone who remembers when harvesting was done with threshing machines. “Readers will find a wealth of information about people and the machines responsible for reaping the harvests in another era,” she said. “You are a good storyteller,” said Ron Larson, a retired steam operator and current old-iron enthusiast from Lakeville. A Farm Country Harvest and all of Fredrickson’s other books are available for purchase at historical society stores throughout Minnesota, as well as online at www.gordonfredrickson.com.

TRANSIT, from 14A ville is “working aggressively to get transit-oriented development around this station area.” Mayor Matt Little expressed concern about the potential for governmental eclipse of free-market development. “I’m always hesitant to force market opinion,” Little said. He also suggested the city focus on “what works,” referring to the city’s heavily-used park-and-ride lot off of I-35. “We may need to prioritize that and replicate that if we want, because that’s being used. We know that for sure,” Little said. Council Member Doug Anderson questioned the usefulness of the study to Lakeville, because it did not include outer-tier suburbs’ experiences with TOD, so Lakeville could replicate success and avoid failures. “I don’t see quite yet how

this study helps us,” he said. Council Member Colleen LaBeau questioned the study’s growth projections, noting they are based on outdated Metropolitan Council population estimates devised before the economic slowdown, and said she was not sure how willing farmers will be to sell property around the 181st Street Station. City Planner Allyn Kuennen said the city intends to allow land uses to be complementary toward transitoriented design in the 181st Street Station area. “That way, we’re at least allowing for the potential for that development to come forward with a proposal rather than putting up any kind of land uses that would completely eliminate it,” Kuennen said. He said the city will include TOD in its next Comprehensive Plan update in four years. City Administrator Steve Mielke said BRT does not drive development, but com-

plements it, so a TOD special area plan requires time and resources. “The land partners around here have to buy into the same strategies, and be willing to do the kinds of development that TOD requires,” Mielke said. “It also requires us to be willing to zone and change our development patterns to change it.” He said if the council wants to pursue it, Lakeville would need to talk to the Met Council about funding. Little cited concerns about moving forward without further research and input from developers “instead of trying to force zoning in around this area.” “I think it’s all about maintaining our character, too,” Little said. “We do have an opportunity, but I don’t think we should abandon our principles … the character of our city just to develop a TOD area.” Laura Adelmann is at laura. adelmann@ecm-inc.com.

Back to School Drive

Burnsville-based US Federal Credit Union sponsored myTalk 107.1 FM radio station’s Back to School Drive benefiting The Caring Tree. The Caring Tree collects, purchases, and distributes school supplies to students in need across the state of Minnesota. The drive ran from July 22 through Aug. 10 at all eight US Federal branch locations. Community members and USFCU employees collectively donated more than 500 items, including 19 backpacks, 126 notebooks, 91 folders and 44 boxes of crayons, in addition to many other supplies. Monetary donations were also collected from community members resulting in a donation of $166 to The Caring Tree. US Federal also presented The Caring Tree with a $500 donation during myTalk 107.1 radio station’s live broadcast from USFCU’s Burnsville location. Radio hosts Margery and Emma were present to accept the donation. (Photo submitted)

2013. “This summer has been even more critical,� Horn said. “From morning to evening, we get about 80 messages from those in need.� Horn said the Resource Centers typically see a rise in need during summer months since its clients’ children often rely on free meals at school. However, this summer has seen a greater increase than the last, Horn said. “Part of the growth is a result of becoming

more visible,� Horn said. “But if the trend stays at an almost 30 percent increase every year, it will become clear that there’s a growing need.� In addition to discussing access issues, the summit provides a place to make connections with potential partners, Horn said. With rising demand, the Resource Centers have been searching for additional partners to provide fresh produce, she said. While attending the summit, Horn

met a representative of the Hmong Farmers Cooperative of Minnesota who said its members often face wasted food due to changing markets. After the meeting, Horn said she is considering a potential partnership to meet both their needs. “It would be a great way to support the local economy,� she said. “By supporting the local system, we can improve access to healthy foods for those who need it.� The Resource Centers have also recently

partnered with Burnsville nonprofit Woodhill Urban Agriculture and Valley Natural Foods coop to form a food policy council that will examine barriers and possible inequities within Dakota County’s food system. The group is currently seeking members and those interested can contact Horn at lisahorn@ eaganrc.org.

“Food Court Wars.� Taping in May at the Burnsville Center food court and the Minnesota Zoo pitted Pimento against Indian-themed hot dog vendor Slum Dogz. Pimento won the decisive day of competition held at the food court, outselling its rival among mall customers. The prize? A year’s free rent at Burnsville Center, which Beevas said is worth $100,000. The show has been airing since Aug. 4.

community involvement for Minnetonka-based Cargill. Living in Minneapolis’ Bryn Mawr neighborhood, Beevas’ backyard barbecuing drew the attention of neighbors, including rapper-musician Reinharz. “When you fire up the grill with some jerk chicken on it, you can smell it for at least two blocks,� Beevas said. “That’s the best marketing tool, by the way.� He and Reinharz eventually teamed up to take jerk on the road. Their debut was at a Bryn Mawr community garage sale. “That dude is way more Jamaican than I could ever hope to be,� Beevas said of Reinharz.

“He knows his reggae, he knows his food, he knows his culture.� The Pimento partners have served at such venues as the Uptown Art Fair, the Twin Cities Pride Festival and the Renaissance Festival. After earning an MBA from the Carlson School of Management in 2011, Beevas wanted something more permanent for his business. Reinharz’s brotherin-law, Kogan, who was born in the republic of Georgia, came on board. Kogan trained at Le Cordon Bleu in Paris and has more than a decade of culinary experience, most recently as chef de cuisine at D’Amico Cucina. Pimento keeps its menu simple, with jerk

chicken, pork and vegetables at the forefront. The meat features a spice mix as well as a choice of three sauces with varying levels of heat. “It’s not about the heat. It’s about the complexity of flavors,� Beevas said. “That’s the thing about Jamaican food.� The signature dish is jerk chicken with coconut rice and beans, served with a side of sweet plantains drizzled in nutmeg vanilla glaze, Beevas said. Slow-roast jerk pork is the No. 2 seller behind chicken. The “One Love� special gives you both meats. There’s more. “You should try our shrimp,� Beevas said. “And we have a whole grilled fish that we do

from head to tail, with the head on, for the adventurous Minnesotans. We stuff that with some greens, some peppers and some seasoning, wrap it in aluminum foil, grill it on both sides, and it’s been steamed in its own juices.� Beevas said the partners are running a Kickstarter campaign with hopes of opening a second location in Minneapolis. Information about Pimento Jamaican Kitchen is at www.pimentokitchen.com.

stage time or public speaking. “I was terrified of stepping foot on stage,� said the 1978 Burnsville High School graduate. As he got older, Kadrlik found that comedy came easy. It melted into all areas of his life,

making clients more comfortable in the office and even as an important part of his home life. “My wife laughs all day, so much her side hurts,� Kadrlik said. Aspirations of being in the spotlight and performing on television floated around in his mind. But they were always put on hold for his accounting career. That is until in 2004, when he overheard a radio interview with Louie Anderson. Anderson announced that he was hosting a competition for local aspiring comedians, which would be held the following year. Kadrlik took the interview as a sign and set his sights on performing at the following year’s amateur competition. Dragging his wife and friends to Acme Comedy Club in Minneapolis, he decided to jump right into an open mic night. “This is what I’m going to do. I’m going to this open mic on Monday night,� he recalled. “She (his wife) thought I was nuts.� He was more than relieved to hear laughs sprout from the audience, and soon Kadrlik was hooked on the comedy bug. Although Anderson’s contest was cancelled, Kadrlik’s determination

has cultivated a successful comedy career. He has performed at the Acme Comedy Club, Minnesota Comedy Club, Comedy Gallery, Rick Bronson’s House of Comedy, The Laugh Pit and much more. He was a semifinalist in the Funniest Person in the Twin Cities contest in 2007 and was the emcee for the 2009 grand opening of the Burnsville Performing Arts Center. In January 2011, Kadrlik’s career came full circle when he was chosen to open for Anderson in Las Vegas. Sitting back stage waiting for his set, Kadrlik bumped into Anderson. He recalled the exchange: “Are you nervous?� Anderson asked. “No,� Kadrlik said. “Well, you should be,� Anderson said with a smile. “Well, now I am,� Kadrlik said laughing. When it was time to perform, he suddenly forgot his whole routine. He even forgot his name. But when the lights went up and the announcer introduced him, it all flooded back. Now at age 53, nighttime comedy shows have become a relaxing outlet for Kadrlik’s everyday job. “It has been more of a nice relief. It’s an oppo-

site of my everyday job as a CPA. It’s fun, silly, stupid,� he said. Kadrlik is excited to bring some smiles to the fundraising event. “As a comedian, it’s not a job that pays well, but my real benefit is to offer myself to charities that can use a helping hand,� Kadrlik said. He will keep things lively in Civic Center Park 1-5 p.m. during the Saturday Afternoon Music in the Park with performances from Sea Farmer and Terra Mara. A raffle will be held, sponsored by the Burnsville Fire Soccer Club and the Burnsville Hockey Club. Kadrlik will introduce all sorts of guests including Ziebol family and friends who will be speaking about Taylor. AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) program students from Nicollet Junior High will honor Taylor’s tutoring contributions. All proceeds will be going to the Ziebol Family Memorial Fund. People may also donate to the fund through Wells Fargo Bank. Checks should be made out to the “Ziebol Family� and can be mailed to or dropped off at any Wells Fargo office.

Backyard roots Beevas, who came to the United States for undergraduate studies in political science and economics, did government and nonprofit work in Washington, D.C., before being hired as director of

Ballet blossoms in south metro Ballet Royale expands to Burnsville, adds professional training program

2 FREE TICKETS!

Lakeville-based dance academy Ballet Royale Minnesota is expanding its reach this fall, offering a satellite program at the Burnsville Performing Arts Center, and adding a professional training program for advanced students. The Burnsville classes, called “Ballet @ BPAC,” are geared to beginning dancers and will include a “pre-ballet” dance class for ages 3 to 6, as well as an introduction to classical ballet class for ages 7 to 12. All the Burnsville classes begin Sept. 11. Ballet Royale founders Rick and Denise Vogt say the idea behind the satellite program is to provide an alternative location to better accommodate students living north of the

academy’s main studio located on Kenyon Avenue near the LakevilleBurnsville border. While the Burnsville classes are geared to beginning dance students, at the other end of the training spectrum Ballet Royale has started its Elite Professional Trainee Division for more advanced dancers and professionals. The daytime ballet training program is by audition and invitation only, and scholarships are available. Auditions can be arranged by contacting the dance studio at 952-898-3163 or info@ twincitiesballet.org. Ballet Royale also announced this week it will be hosting open auditions next month for

professional dancers interested in joining Twin Cities Ballet, the nonprofit branch of Ballet Royale that stages “The Nutcracker” and other shows each year at the Burnsville Performing Arts Center. For the 2013-14 season, Twin Cities Ballet plans to hire professional dancers as salaried employees, rather than contracted for each production. They’re looking for both male and female professionals, and the auditions will be held at noon Sunday, Sept. 8, at Ballet Royale’s main studio in Lakeville. More about the dance academy is at www.balletroyalemn.org. —Andrew Miller
