Commission votes no on Wildwood tower plan Final decision falls on City Council

APPLE VALLEY nity development director. The Planning Commission also voted against Clearwire’s proposal to erect a tower in Galaxie Park on grounds the application didn’t meet all ordinance requirements. Clearwire, which is based in Washington state and partly owned by Sprint, is seeking to launch a wireless Internet service in the Twin Cities and has a total of 11 sites planned in Apple Valley for its network. Nine of those sites – all but the Wildwood and Galaxie locations – have already received city approval. Seven of the sites – including the Longridge, Nordic, Quarry Point, Val-

The Apple Valley Planning Commission has voted against a telecommunications company’s plan to erect a 125-foot tower in Wildwood Park. On June 13, the commission voted 4-2 against the proposal by Clearwire Wireless, citing compatibility issues with the surrounding area. “The tower in this location, at 125 feet, really made it almost twice the height of the tree canopy – commission members were uncomfortable with that,� said Bruce Nordquist, the city’s commu-

leywood and Palomino water towers – will use existing infrastructure for Clearwire’s network and do not involve construction of new towers. While the Planning Commission voted against the Wildwood and Galaxie proposals, it is the City Council that will ultimately decide whether to approve or deny Clearwire’s applications for those sites. The City Council will review, and possibly vote on, the Wildwood and Galaxie applications at the 8 p.m. Thursday, July 8, council meeting at the Apple Valley Municipal Center. Neighbors who oppose the Wildwood Park tower plan have made their voices heard in recent months. The Wildwood Park Alliance – which leader John Hessburg says consists of 12

core members and has gathered the support of about 500 adult homeowners residing near the park – opposes the tower proposal; they say the tower would be an eyesore, hurt property values and possibly have harmful health effects. The city is required by statute to make a decision within 120 days of when Clearwire submitted its applications, which was in April, meaning the council has until early August to vote on the proposals. Clearwire is seeking to launch its “next generation� high-speed Internet network in September, according to Steven Kenny of developer FMHC Corp., the project’s official petitioner.

Commissioners take a spin down Cedar Avenue, without a vehicle 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 cutting-edge technology designed to help them steer safely. Included in the system are “digital maps,� displays that provide information on lane boundaries and nearby vehicles even in low-visibility conditions. The system also features rear-end collisionavoidance systems and lane-departure warnings. To help keep the bus between the lines, the driver’s seat vibrates like a rumble strip to warn

DAKOTA COUNTY 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, “I’ve been through airplane simulators before, but nothing quite like that.� The system has been found to increase safety and reliability by improving driver confidence while driving in narrow lanes.

Apple Valley Neighborhoods can register Apple Valley woman dies Red Cross blood June 30 now for annual Night to Unite after collision in Hastings drive A Red Cross blood drive

Think Mutual Bank plans branch office in Apple Valley

will be held from 1 to 6 p.m. Wednesday, June 30, at James Barton Design Build Inc. in Apple Valley. The event will be hosted by Kathy Poepping of Savage, who credits blood donations with saving her son’s life. In 2005, her 10-year-old son Andrew was diagnosed with leukemia and needed 35 blood transfusions to keep his blood counts strong enough to endure chemotherapy. Andrew’s leukemia is now in remission and Poepping is hosting the blood drive in Andrew’s honor to help replenish supplies for other patients in need. All blood types are needed. To make an appointment or for more information, call (800) 448-3543 or visit www. redcrossblood.org. James Barton Design Build Inc. is located at 5920 148th St. W., Apple Valley.

Think Mutual Bank has purchased property for a future bank branch in Apple Valley. Construction is scheduled to begin this month at the site at 15751 Emperor Ave. The land purchase is part of the bank’s long-range strategic plan to reach new customers and improve convenience for existing customers in the Twin Cities area, according to bank officials. “This new branch, along with another larger branch currently under construction in Eagan, will double our branch presence in the south metro,� said Daryl Karsky, vice president of the bank’s Twin Cities region. Think Mutual Bank is a community bank headquartered in Rochester, with eight full-service offices in Rochester, Edina and St. Paul. Think provides an array of banking, investment and insurance services.

Gundacker/from 1A

Gundacker didn’t have any problems until February 2008 when persistent headaches led him to the exam room where doctors found the stage-four tumor on his brain. After the surgery, Gundacker underwent 10 radiation treatments on his head. Additional drug treatments, consistent exams and a return to leukine shots has him past the two-year point cancer free. “I should not be here right now,� he said. “I don’t know what is doing it. The drug is supposed to enhance the white cells so they fight the cancer cells.� He says he has drawn strength from family, friends, co-workers and the people he has encountered through work. “I have acquired a lot of caring people out there,� he said. “That has been very helpful.�

Neighborhood gatherings and block parties are being organized in Apple Valley for the second annual Night to Unite on Tuesday, Aug. 3. Registration forms are available on the city’s website, www.cityofapplevalley.org. Night to Unite is intended to bring neighbors together and build ties between neighborhoods and local police. It’s sponsored by the Minnesota Crime Prevention Association, AAA of Minnesota/Iowa, and local law enforcement agencies. “This is an opportunity for neighborhoods and communities to band together, enjoy a summer evening and

get to know who belongs in their neighborhoods,� said MCPA President Terry Thomton. Last year, 108 Night to Unite gatherings were held in Apple Valley, according to Pam Walter, local Night to Unite coordinator. Apple Valley will again be hosting its annual Business Watch Picnic in support of Night to Unite. The picnic runs from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at Fire Station No. 1 at the corner of Hayes Avenue and County Road 42. The picnic is open to the public. For more information about Night to Unite or to get involved, contact Pam Walter at (952) 953-2706.

   

An Apple Valley woman died Friday, June 18, following a vehicle accident on Highway 55 in Hastings, according to the Minnesota State Patrol. Sheila M. Happe, 47, an assistant attorney with the Dakota County Attorney’s Office, was driving on General Sieben Drive just before 1 p.m. June 17 when she reportedly ran a red light in trying to cross Highway 55, the State Patrol said. A truck driven by 42-year-old Thomas D. Munkelwitz of Forest Lake collided with Happe’s vehicle. Happe was taken to Regions Hospital in St. Paul and died the next day. Munkelwitz suffered no apparent injury. Road conditions were dry, the State Patrol said. Happe

was wearing her seat belt and alcohol did not appear to be a factor in the crash. Happe had been with the county attorney’s office since 2000, working in the civil division as the legal advisor for community corrections and social services, Dakota County Attorney James Backstrom said. “We’re all in a state of shock,� Backstrom said. “She was an outstanding attorney and she will be greatly missed.� Happe, who grew up in Burnsville and graduated from Burnsville High School in 1980, was married and had two children, ages 11 and 13. Mass of Christian burial was held Wednesday, June 23, at St. John the Baptist Catholic Church in Savage. —Andrew Miller

Toddler helps mayor cut ribbon by Laura Adelmann THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

A handful of citizens joined Rosemount officials to dedicate a city bike rack June 15. Symbolic of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s focus on becoming more cycler-friendly, the bike rack is portable, and will likely be used at various events around the city. Mayor Bill Droste selected 3-year-old Gabe Jenson of Rosemount to help him cut the ribbon, which proved to be a more chal-

lenging endeavor than anyone anticipated. The large ceremonial scissors wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t cut through the plastic ribbon, and so Droste assisted using a regular size scissors someone produced after several unsuccessful tries. Afterward, Gabe was presented the ribbon, which he proudly wore. Rosemountâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pedestrian and Bicycle Master Plan for the community began in March and is expected to conclude by late summer.

ROSEMOUNT The plan is a long-term guide for transforming the city into a more pedestrian and bicycle-friendly community. On June 28, the Rosemount Park and Recreation Board will review the plan during its regular 7 p.m. meeting at City Hall. The public is welcome to attend.

Eagan one of only two teams to earn School of Excellence honors Eastview High School senior Lindsey White successfully defended her national title in humorous interpretation at the National Forensic League (NFL) Speech and Debate Tournament held June 1318 in Kansas City, Mo. White, who won state and national titles in humorous interpretation as a junior, capped her high school speech career with a second consecutive national championship in humorous. She finished third in humorous at this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s state tournament in April and was runner-up in dramatic performance at the National Catholic Forensic Leagueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Grand National Tournament in May. Three other District 196 students advanced to the final round of competition at this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s NFL tournament; Bryan Porter of Apple Valley High School

finished fourth in dramatic interpretation, and Joshua Evans and Lauren Stopfer of Eagan High School finished sixth in duo interpretation. In addition, Rachel Markon of Eagan earned a Show Me Excellence Award as a four-time qualifier for the national tournament. As a team, Eagan High was one of only two schools in the country to earn School of Excellence Awards in both speech and debate. The School of Excellence awards are based on the number of elimination rounds of competition completed by a schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s students during the course of the national tournament. This is the 11th year in a row that Eagan has earned at least one School of Excellence Award at the national tournament.

Opinion Thisweek Columnist My dad, my daughter – two wonderful lives by Tad Johnson THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

My parents were in town recently from Des Moines, Iowa, to visit their granddaughter for the first time. Eleanor Rose was born Feb. 24, 2010 – the eighth grandchild for my parents. Our time with them was spent showering our first child with attention as we smiled and laughed during the evening over dinner and a few drinks. When my parents arrived at the in-laws’ house across town to spend the night, my dad had a slight slur in his speech (attributed to his goofy nature) and such a weakness in his knee that he had to scoot down the steps to get to the bedroom. In the morning when my dad rose to get out of bed his left leg gave out from under him and he tumbled onto the floor. With his face drooping a bit on his left side, it was apparent my father had suffered a stroke. It’s been over two months since that day and my dad’s recovery to this point has been slow and difficult to absorb since his

old vibrancy has not returned yet, along with the full use of his left leg and arm. The range of emotions went to extremes during my first Father’s Day as a dad and the first with my dad in a medical rehabilitation center a few hundred miles away. The birth of a child and the vulnerability of old age illustrate the fragile gift of life and the sacrifices expected to care for and bring a new person into this world. Eleanor and my dad both are in need of attention 24 hours a day. Being a parent is life’s emotional system check. It tests to make sure we still can still feel extreme measures of joy, fear, amazement, apprehension, exuberance, paranoia all in the span of about two minutes. Four months after the birth of our daughter, I’m still struck by the impossibility of it all. It was a difficult pregnancy for my wife – an emotional roller coaster for us both as several factors made it a less than smooth delivery. The outcome was an emotional purging pouring forth in tears

Proud grandfather Bill Johnson holds Eleanor Rose for the first time. of joy, hugs, kisses, smiles and laughter. Since we brought our daughter home and were entrusted with her care, it has been like lighting a candle on both ends. A few days into it, it felt like the only part left was the wick burnt to a crisp. Raising a daughter (waking up multiple times during the

night for feedings and diaper changes, relentlessly finding the next soothing measure for her cries and encouraging her to the next milestone) has affirmed the amount of work and love that my own father and mother expended in raising me, and not to mention three other children before me. I can only hope that I am as good at parenting as my father and mother. My dad is a constant source of inspiration, positivity and bad jokes. He never seemed to let anything get him down whether it was a leaky roof, a family ski trip interrupted by vehicle malfunction or a brief time of unemployment. The list is much longer than space allows. One of the greatest lessons he taught was the value of friendship. My parents developed a strong connection to the couples they met during their college years. They continued that connection with annual fishing trips in the summer and New Year’s Eve gatherings. They also developed a closeknit group of friends in Des Moines. The times together were mostly focused on riotous good

times – dressing up like idiots for Halloween, surprise birthday parties, etc. The costumes became more and more ridiculous to the point that inhibition was out the window. These good times are cherished, but as time has advanced that network of friends is called on more and more for support. When one of my dad’s close friends was diagnosed with an aggressive form of melanoma, dad was the first one in line to volunteer to drive him from Kansas City to Mayo Clinic for his treatments. He has been there so many times for Gary, who now is returning my father’s favors through visits to him in the rehab center. At some point in our lives, we are dependent on others for support in varying degrees. It is important to remember all those who have helped us arrive at the places where we are today because some day they also will need our help. Tad Johnson is managing editor of Thisweek Newspapers.

Letters Comparison of presidents is off the mark To the editor: A recent letter writer must think Thisweek readers are incredibly ignorant. He must not know that the wealthy in Minnesota have enjoyed lower tax rates than the rest of us only recently in our state’s history. He must not know that the cost of Minnesota government as a percent of gross output, is at a record low. He may have missed the fact that the cost of government has been shifted from income to property and sales taxes which bear hardest on middle and low incomes. He thinks if the wealthy get wealthier, everything gets solved. Yet he doesn’t offer to name a city, state or country where that has ever worked. But, most astonishing is his attempt to compare the average unemployment rate over the eight Bush years with the first 11 months of the Obama administration. He completely ignores the possibility that Bush policies were the cause of the recession and that eight years of damage isn’t suddenly fixed and employment improved the day Bush left the White House. Doesn’t he know the employment rate is now steadily growing? Doesn’t he know the stock market has doubled since Obama took office? Maybe he knows but hopes readers haven’t noticed. His letter is a perfect example of what conservative columnist Kathleen Parker suggests has become a pat-

tern: “The well-fed Right now cultivates ignorance as a political strategy,” she wrote in her Oct. 17, 2008 column. Give a million dollar tax cut to the wealthy and they will build a $4 million house instead of a $3 million house. It is really amazing that people like the letter writer do not understand the greed of the wealthy. The Bush tax cuts were enacted early in his phony presidency and all we got was eight years of employment decline.

protect their agenda is to attack the other side. But now it appears these groups won’t even give us a break from negative ads over the summer. I hope anyone who gets this negative piece of garbage or the next one that’s sure to follow will call Kurt Bills and ask him to tell the GOP and their wealthy St. Paul cronies to knock it off. This is Apple Valley and Rosemount. We make up our own minds here and we don’t appreciate this type of negative politics.

Negative politics Bringing integrity, have no place here accessibility To the editor: to elections When I went to my mailbox this past weekend I was upset to find a nasty piece of campaign literature about our state Rep. Phil Sterner, DFL-Rosemount. The large glossy postcard was full of negative halftruths and was put together by a group called the Minnesota Chamber Leadership Fund. It surprised me that they would attack one of their own, since I know Sterner is a longtime member of our local Chamber and has done so much work for small businesses this year. I’ve gotten used to seeing this kind of nasty political mail piling up in my mailbox in October – I don’t like it, but I’ve come to expect it. It usually comes when a candidate gets desperate and feels the need to go negative, or more often, when wealthy special interests decide the only way to

To the editor: State Sen. Chris Gerlach, R-Apple Valley, should be commended for the role he played in getting necessary reforms made to our elections process that balance access and integrity. These changes encourage greater participation and transparency than what we had previously. This accomplishment is nothing short of amazing considering the contentious backdrop of the U.S. Senate Norm Coleman-Al Franken election. It is also a testament to Gerlach’s ability to stand behind sound principles while working with those from both parties and the community to accomplish a common goal. This is a great example of why we need to re-elect Sen. Chris Gerlach. KEVIN ECKER Apple Valley

Thisweek Columnist

Message from prisoners resonates across the U.S. by Joe Nathan THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

Some of the strongest responses I’ve ever received to a column came in recently. Readers commented on a column highlighting “From the Inside Out,” a book written by Stillwater prison inmates for young people. The book was the product of classes at Stillwater taught by Carleton professor Deborah Appleman. Because of the Internet, responses came not only from Minnesota communities like Eagan and Elk River, but also people in Baltimore and Seattle. Here are a few of the comments: From a parent in Eagan: “If the excerpts in your Thisweek column provide insight into the messages in this book, I want to read it aloud to my 11-year-old son and all of his classmates at Paideia Academy. I also think it would be great reinforcement for the good things that are happening in his Boy Scout troop. He is entering into a time of great peer influence and the risk of ‘falling into the wrong group of kids.’ This book would serve to help guide kids away from behavior that would land them in a corrections program.” From a suburban public school teacher: “I was part of a workshop with Deborah Appleman. She is amazing and the men from Stillwater had extremely important messages to share. I bought the book and am already using it in my classrooms. I highly recommend it.” From the Milaca area: “I am not connected to any school but am interested in having my grandchildren (eight) and my six great grandchildren read this wonderful book. I am 80 years old and have lived a full and wonderful life and have been blessed with a wonderful family, But that doesn’t mean I haven’t seen some very unhappy people. Many years ago I was a temporary secretary at the Hennepin Jail where I worked for the nurses. My job was writing up the histories of the new inmates. “One day, I recognized the name of a young man I had at (a suburban) junior high. I was a teacher’s aide in eighth grade science. I know the young man finally re-

membered me as he was only about 18 at the time. It broke my heart that he had ended up in the jail and I pray he left there with a different attitude about his future. I remember that way back in the 1970s so many of the goals of the students were to raise Cain and get accepted by the troublemakers of the school. I just wish I would have had the opportunity to influence this young boy’s life and pray he became a great law abiding adult.” From an Elk River area reader: “I am … a juvenile probation officer in Hennepin County. I am the coordinator/facilitator for an anger management group of high level juvenile probationers. One section of our curriculum is moral reasoning. Lately they seem to be getting caught up in prison is no big thing and you do what you do. I believe this may a good book for them to look at, read, and understand.” From Seattle: “I am the principal at Nova High School, a public alternative school in Seattle with 350 students. … In August 2008 two-thirds of our staff did a professional development day at Monroe Prison meeting with the Black Prisoners Caucus and earlier this month, some of us returned for an Education Summit with the same group. “This year our students organized a gifts for kids program in December for children of incarcerated parents and two years ago we set up a class called Prisons that looked at the history of incarceration because a number of our students have either experienced the criminal justice system directly or have family members or friends who are incarcerated. We also discovered that some students signed up for the class because they have a parent or family member who works in corrections. I am sure this book will … interest both students and staff.” Joe Nathan, a former public school teacher and administrator, directs the Center for School Change, Humphrey Institute, University of Minnesota.

Thisweekend Cancer free, Lakeville musician gives back with benefit concert Jug Jam will raise money for Fairview Foundation medical fund THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

Iris Bouvet has a sense of humor about her battle with breast cancer. It manifests as bosom-related puns and wordplay. The June 27 concert sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s organized to benefit other breast cancer patients is called Jug Jam. And the refreshment menu at the concert includes cupcakes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cupcakes â&#x20AC;&#x201C; cups, as in double-A or double-D,â&#x20AC;? the Lakeville resident said with a laugh. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The thing about cancer, and a lot of people will tell you this, is that you have to find the humor where you can.â&#x20AC;?

All data from the Regional Multiple Listing Service. Reports are created and maintained by 10K Research and Marketing.

What to watch for Pending sales in the Twin Cities housing market trended up for the first time in four weeks but remain substantially below 2009. For the week ending June 12 there were 674 signed purchase agreements, up from the mark of 527 the prior week but down dramatically from the mark of 1,210 seen during the same week a year ago. This may be a sign that the drastic drops in sales seen in May and early June were simply temporary aftershock reactions to the tax-credit build up and that demand will slowly return over the course of the summer, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s far too early to say that with any certainty. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be keeping a close eye on the numbers each week.

New listings moved upward for the same reporting week to 1,729, but remain 12.2 percent behind last year at this time. However, inventory has slowly climbed due to the decline in pending sales, currently sitting at 26,990 active listings, an increase of 1.1 percent from a year ago.

by farm fields. Prior to the centerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s construction, northern Dakota County had one primary health care provider but no hospital, Frederixon said. The city of Apple Valley tried for several years to recruit physicians to build an emergency room center, but many doctors did not want to make the long commute from Minneapolis to the small rural town, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At the time there wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t as good of access â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Cedar Avenue was not developed yet,â&#x20AC;? Frederixon said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just had general knowledge to say that I knew this would be a booming community in a short period of time.â&#x20AC;? When Apple Valley Medical Center opened its doors, the center had a primary care clinic and the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first emergency room, which was served by one ambulance.

The staff of four physicians has grown to 12 family practitioners minus founders English and Widdifield, who have since retired â&#x20AC;&#x201C; English two years ago and Widdifield earlier this month. The emergency room was changed into a 24-hour urgent care center, and a speciality center, full-service pharmacy, and physical medicine and rehabilitation center were added. The specialty center, operated by United Hospital, has 25 physicians from various specialty clinics throughout the metro, and the physical medicine and rehabilitation center has 14 specialists. A 20,000-square-foot addition costing $8.5 million was built in 2007. This allowed for 35 new exam rooms and for the pharmacy to double in size.

In a sea of Fairviews, Allinas and other networkowned medical centers stands an independently owned clinic in Apple Valley. Apple Valley Medical Center is the oldest and largest of the two remaining independent primary care clinics in Dakota County. (The other independently owned clinic is Burnsville Family Physicians, which opened in 1982.) Apple Valley Medical Center opened in 1974 six months after the village of Apple Valley â&#x20AC;&#x201C; population 14,039 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; became a city. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I knew it would be a great place to do a startup clinic,â&#x20AC;? said Dr. Peter Frederixon, one of the clinicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s four founders. Frederixon and doctors John English, David Widdifield and David Maas were able to finance the $800,000 center with a loan and built it on donated land surrounded

While Apple Valley Medical Center was changing, so too was the business climate. Most primary care clinics were independently owned until about 15 years ago when many physicians sold their practices to the networks, Frederixon said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Many saw it (joining a network) as less of an administrative hassle,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It takes a lot of work to maintain an independent practice.â&#x20AC;? However, the Apple Valley Medical Center Board decided it would be in its best interest and the best interest of the community to remain independent, Frederixon said.

Although networkowned clinics continue to be ever growing competition, Frederixon said he is not worried. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you have a good practice and good service, people will be loyal to that,â&#x20AC;? he said. The Apple Valley Medical Center tries to stay competitive by offering its 24hour urgent care seven days a week and on holidays, and by having longer hours at its primary care clinic, which is open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Although networks present competition, some of them also serve as partners.

It’s still too early to define Target Field as “pitcher friendly,” but the lack of home runs in the park this season has been a hot topic. Minnesota Twins star catcher Joe Mauer has not yet hit a home run during the regular season at Target Field. During the Class AAA state finals last Saturday, Burnsville players Tom Sherman and Brandon Peterson each hit one. It’s hard to imagine hitting home runs was part of Burnsville’s strategy in the state finals. Hitting the ball 350 feet is not something high school coaches can depend upon.

That group of schools had a representative in the state baseball (Burnsville), softball (Burnsville), and boys team tennis (Eagan) finals. They also sent at least one team to the final four in girls (Lakeville) and boys (Eagan) state lacrosse tournaments. A significant portion of the golfers at the state tournament last week came from that group, including teams from Lakeville North boys, Eastview girls and Eagan boys. The list of track and field athletes at state would take up the rest of this page.

And that’s just spring. Just last school year Lakeville North girls basketball, Apple Valley wrestling, Lakeville South girls Alpine and Apple Valley boys soccer all won state titles. And don’t look past the addition of Prior Lake this fall. The school’s girls cross country team is one of the best in the state. Prior Lake’s boys golf, softball, baseball and wrestling teams have also had recent success. That’s why winning a South Suburban Conference title will be a significant accomplishment.

Sara Detlefsen capped a brilliant sophomore season with the Eastview girls golf team by tying for second place in the Class AAA state girls golf championships June 15-16 at Bunker Hills in Coon Rapids. She had a consistent twoday tournament, shooting 74 on both days for a 148 total. Last season, she tied for third with 157. “She’s real happy with her two-day total,” Eastview head coach Bob Boldus said. “She got beat by a girl who played very well.” Detlefsen was five strokes out of first. As a team, the Lightning finished sixth overall, shooting a two-day team score of 698. “We wanted to be in the top three and I know that’s where they could have been,” Boldus said. “The course played long the first day because it was so wet.” Scores improved across the board compared to 2009 when Lakeville North won with a team score of 692, which would have put them in sixth this year. The winner in 2009 shot 151, good enough for fifth this year. “I couldn’t believe the scores for the tournament,” Boldus said. “We shot 345 the first day, which was our best tournament right there and we’re sitting in fifth

place.” Kristin Opatz had the next best finish for Eastview. She shot 173, which put her in 36th place. “She had a solid tournament,” Boldus said, “and she’s doing a lot of the right things in the offseason.” Anna Drahos needed three more strokes to finish her round, shooting 176. She took 42nd overall. “That’s average for her,” Boldus said. “I know she wanted to go out a little better.” Sam Peterson carded 201, putting her at 80th.

As much as Mike Zweber loves football, some things are just more important to him. When ranking faith, family and football, faith and family come first. “There’s bigger things out there in the world,” he said. “This is one of the things I’m called to do.” Next school year, Zweber, head coach of the Lakeville North High School football team, will take the second semester off to go on a six-month mission trip with Youth With A Mission (YWAM), a non-denominational international Christian organization, along with his wife and children. “It was one of the most difficult decisions I’ve ever made,” Zweber said. “I’ve known this is the direction we’ve been going in for a while. It was something that is important for us to do.” He said he’s always told his students and players that sometimes making the right decision isn’t always the easy decision. This time he took his own advice. Although he won’t leave until second semester, he wanted to prepare

Family-friendly bar, grill opens Fireside Warming House to have grand opening by Jessica Harper THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

After several months of delays, Fireside Warming House finally opened June 11 in Rosemount. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a dream of mine that has finally come true,â&#x20AC;? owner Rich Thompson said. The restaurant is an expansion of Fireside Pizza in Richfield. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had been looking to open a new location for years and wanted to continue what we have in Richfield but a bit more upscale,â&#x20AC;? he said. Fireside Warming House has a bar, banquet room and larger menu than Fireside Pizza that includes burgers and sandwiches in addition to pizza. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want your typical sports bar filled with TVs,â&#x20AC;?
