Questions remain after shotgun fired into home by Andrew Miller THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

The night of Sept. 17, Cory Langer awoke to the sound of his girlfriend screaming. Langer, who had been fast asleep in the upstairs bedroom of his split-level home at 815 Jonathan Drive in Apple Valley, hadn’t heard the blast because his door was closed and the fan was on high. His girlfriend, though, had heard a sound resembling an explosion after she got out of the shower around midnight. A check of the basement provided the first clue as to

what the blast had been. “There was a hole about two times the size of my fist in the window,� said Langer, who raced upstairs, grabbed a butcher knife and called 911. Police confirmed what the hole in the window seemed to suggest: Someone on foot had fired a shotgun into the home. About 10 squad cars and police officers armed with what appeared to be M16 rifles responded to the 911 call, Langer said. Initially, Langer and his girlfriend were detained – they were both handcuffed and placed in the back of

Next year, Rosemount is putting up $10,000 to help build business and job growth on a regional scale by joining the Itasca Group. A regional economic development organization formed in 2003, the Itasca Group is made up of public officials and private industry representatives focused on closing socioeconomic gaps and adding jobs. The Twin Cities region has fallen behind nationally in job growth, Kathleen Schmidlkofer, vice president of the Itasca Job Growth Initiative, told the Rosemount Port Authority at its Sept. 21 meeting. She presented the group’s research, which indicated that while the Twin Cities area offers a high quality of life and an educated workforce, high business taxes and labor costs coupled with steep regulations are keeping the region from drawing new businesses. According to the group’s research, Twin Cities employment growth was 0.8 percent above the

national average in 1992, but has steadily dropped, except for briefly in 2000, to now being almost 0.6 percent below the U.S. average. Schmidlkofer said Itasca Group is intent to reverse that trend. She said the group has discovered other regions have benefitted by joining together and putting together a deliberate strategy around economic development. With a regional focus instead of a myopic competition between borders, that same kind of regional focus could provide jobs to Rosemount residents and help lift the overall economy, Port Authority members agreed. Schmidlkofer said the Itasca Group is searching for a CEO, and has applied to become a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, and said the Itasca Group is considering various strategies as it moves forward. For example, some regions in the United States have deliberately concentrated efforts toward a certain sector of businesses, See Growth, 9A

Friends and family have planned a benefit for a Rosemount husband, father, teacher and coach who is battling an aggressive brain cancer. Paul Wright, 45, a 17year social studies teacher at Bloomington Jefferson High School, underwent a successful surgery to remove a brain tumor in 2004. But a larger, malignant tumor returned in November 2008. Doctors performed several surgeries and removed some of the tumor, but it has continued to grow, and Wright is now undergoing radiation and chemotherapy treatments. His wife, Leslee Wright, 36, said the median life expectancy with his type of brain tumor, grade II astrocytoma, is one year. “This has changed our lives greatly. (Paul) is unable to work, drive or be left alone for very long. I have taken a year of family medical leave from my teaching position. We are trying very hard to keep our son’s life as normal as possible,� Leslee wrote in an e-mail.

Recently, the couple has taken their son Blake, 10, on many family trips including ones to Disney World, Chicago and Wisconsin Dells. “We had the opportunity to take a few trips and definitely wanted to do them while Paul could still travel. We were very fortunate to get a trip through Memories of Love Foundation to Disney this summer. We did that right before Paul’s surgery and were so happy to have that,� Leslee wrote.

Rosemount City Attorney Charlie LeFevere said that the city must review the lease before granting liquor licenses to ensure they are licensing the correct party. “If (the lease) is an exorbitant rate or the rate slides depending on the success of the business, that may be an indication the landlord has an interest (in the business), and a background investigation should include the landlord. It doesn’t happen often, but occasionally it does,� LeFevere said.

MGM Liquors on South Robert Trail is closing and its owner plans to open a new liquor store in downtown Rosemount soon. The new store is to be located in the area previously occupied by Irish Loon and Big Daddy’s Restaurant at 14495 South Robert Trail. On Sept. 21, Rosemount City Council members unanimously approved a liquor license application submitted by William Kuether, president of FPW LLC, contingent on a renovation plan Laura Adelmann is at dcediand a final lease agreement. tor@frontiernet.net.

Government-funded programs help locals learn Mandarin Chinese When it comes to global economic power, there are two behemoths engaged in an artful dance of friendly suspicion. The United States still has the largest economy in the world, but China recently supplanted Japan as number two and is only growing, according to Bloomberg News. This has a number of ramifications, but is evident locally in the public schools. The Rosemount-Apple Valley-Eagan school district offers Mandarin Chinese at its Diamond Path international studies magnet school,

For now, though, he’s having a security system installed, including an array of motion-sensitive lights in the yard. “Now if you take two steps into the back of my yard it’ll light up the sky like Mystic Lake,� he said.

His 7-year-old son slept through the incident, and the room the shooter fired into was unoccupied at the time. “Luckily, no one was down there in that room,� he said. “A month earlier my son’s bedroom was down there.� The shooting has left the family shaken and fearful.

Birdshot was found lodged in the wall of the room that was hit, Langer said, and police were able to determine, based on the size of the hole in the window, that the shooter was within 10 feet of the home when the gun was fired. Langer, 33, a union electrician, said he’s not involved in any criminal activity and can’t think of anyone with a vendetta against him. He believes the shooter may have been targeting a past occupant of the home. “I’m just kind of dumb-

Suspect already charged with burglary by Laura Adelmann THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

An Eagan man is facing two felony charges in separate incidents, but both in part due to the work of some four-pawed officers. According to a Dakota County complaint filed this week: On June 1, a K-9 officer helped deputies find drugs and drug paraphernalia inside a car driven by a student and parked at Dakota County Technical College during a sweep of the Rosemount college’s parking lot. Inside the vehicle, driven by Jeremy James Collins, 20, of Eagan, was found a baggie of cocaine, an open bottle of vodka, and a black bag with a plastic egg containing marijuana seeds and stems. In addition, the car’s search yielded two gallonsize baggies and a small digital scale, all covered with marijuana residue. Collins admitted to buying seven gram baggies of marijuana for about $100, using some of it, then selling some of the one-gram baggies for about $10 each. He said he sells the marijuana about once or twice

home on Falcon Way, where they found Collins and another suspect identified as J.H. in the complaint. The witness was brought to the address and said he’d bet money that Collins was the man he’d seen in the doorway. Through conversations with Collins and J.H., another suspect, referred to as S.S., was identified. Officers went to S.S.’s residence, and his mother consented to a search of her car. Police found a cardboard box filled with electronics including a television, Wii system and laptop, none of which belonged to S.S. or his mother. The owner of the house later claimed the items were his. J.H. said he was the lookout while Collins and S.S. entered the home, but Collins said he had stayed in the car and S.S. had entered the home alone. Deputies found the home was locked and a side door had been kicked in.

Brad Wayne, a captain in the Dakota County Sheriff’s Office, said the school regularly requests drug sweeps of the parking lot, and students were told the sweep would occur. In July, Collins was charged with felony burglary for allegedly helping to steal electronics from an Eagan residence. According to a different Dakota County complaint, sheriff’s deputies responded to a call of a burglary in process on Hummingbird Lane in Eagan and used a K-9 to track suspects to a home where they were hiding. A witness had reported seeing a man carrying a box from a neighbor’s home who was out of town, and confronted another man, he later identified as Collins, who was standing in the doorway of the home. The witness said the man in the doorway told him he lived there, closed and locked the door and ran through and out of the house. A K-9 picked up the scent and led deputies to a

Apple Valley

Weapons charge follows traffic stop by Andrew Miller An Apple Valley man allegedly fled from police on foot after a search of his vehicle turned up a handgun he didn’t have a permit to carry. The footchase ended with the man’s arrest – and the discovery of a second handgun, police said. Joseph Leroy Brown Jr., 32, was charged with possession of a pistol without a permit, a felony, and fleeing a police officer on foot, a misdemeanor, following the Sept. 12 incident. A Dakota County criminal complaint gives the following account: An Apple Valley police

officer made a traffic stop on Brown’s vehicle just before 10 p.m. Sept. 12 at the intersection of Hallmark Way and 157th Street. The officer smelled marijuana as he approached the vehicle, and subsequently searched the vehicle for the drug as Brown and a passenger waited outside. The search turned up a black handgun, concealed in a purse on the front passenger seat. When the officer attempted to handcuff Brown as a safety precaution, Brown fled on foot. After running south across 157th Street, then westbound, then back across 157th, Brown attempted to crawl un-

der a parked car and was apprehended. The officer recovered a silver handgun from under the car, along with a “small baggie� of marijuana that was in Brown’s shoe, the complaint said. Brown told police he didn’t have a permit to purchase a handgun or carry a concealed weapon, and that, when pulled over, “he knew he was in trouble and it was his instinct to run to avoid prosecution,� according to the complaint. If convicted of possession of a pistol without a permit, Brown faces a maximum penalty of five years in prison and a $10,000 fine. Brown was previously con-

    

      

     

         

victed of possession of a pistol without a permit in February 1996. Fleeing a police officer (by means other than a motor vehicle) is a misdemeanor that carries a maximum penalty of 90 days in jail and a $1,000 fine. Brown’s next court appearance is Oct. 25 in Dakota County District Court in Hastings.

Explosion shuts down Black Dog power plant Burnsville facility will be off-line for weeks pending an investigation, Xcel says by Aaron Vehling THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

A small explosion and additional fire incident shut down Xcel Energy’s Black Dog power plant in Burnsville on Tuesday morning. Three firefighters were injured – two were treated on the scene and returned to battle the blaze and the other was sent to Regions Hospital in St. Paul to be treated for leg injuries, according to the Burnsville Police Department. It all started at 7:15 a.m. when plant personnel detected smoldering in one of the plant’s coal hoppers, said Xcel spokesman Tom Hoen. Ten minutes later they decided to call the Burnsville Fire

in the morning, Burnsville police said a second fire broke out in the roof’s insulation. About 50 firefighters fought the blaze in crews of four or five. Certain panels on the outside of the plant that were blown out by the explosion were designed to blow out in that fashion, Hoen said. None of the 75 employees was injured and all were back at the facility the next day to work, Hoen said. “Employees are safe and accounted for,� he said. By Wednesday, Xcel was looking to protect the inside of the facility from a predicted torrent of rain. “We are sealing up the exterior of the building,� Hoen said, citing the west end’s postexplosion exposure to the elements. Damage assessment is ongoing. The plant, which serves 800,000 residents and uses coal and natural gas, will be off-line for the next few weeks while Xcel and the Fire Department investigate the cause of the explosion, Hoen said. “Customers will not see any outages because of this,� Hoen said. Xcel can route power from other plants and can also buy power on the market, he added. After a discussion with the director of the plant, Hoen said that the facility has not experienced any explosions in the last 10 to 15 years.

Xu’s first experience with America was in Washington, D.C. in July. She spent two weeks there for her program’s orientation. “People said ‘excuse me’ and ‘thank you’ a lot,� she said. When she came to Apple Valley to settle in with her host family, Xu noticed something comforting. “American people are warm and friendly,� she said. Xing’s first American experience was on the opposite coast at UCLA for eight days before moving in with a host family in Rosemount. “California is very beautiful,� she said. Among the major differences between the nations, according to Xu and Xing, is the food and the work schedule. “There’s too much butter in my food,� Xu said, although she was quick to add that she loves cheese and ice cream, two items not as ubiquitous in China as they are here. Xing said she likes the domestic style of Chinese food.

With Spanish holding forth as America’s second official unofficial language and French just an easier set of sounds to unfurl, what makes Mandarin Chinese a popular choice? Why bother with the language if they all study English anyway? Xu references the cultural understanding element but also gets more practical: China’s big, here to stay and if you want to do business there a grasp of the language will work wonders toward your success. Xing added her insight. “China is a rich country with a long history,� she said. “It is the most populous country in the world. I like to joke with my students that if you can speak Chinese, you can make friends with one-fifth of the world’s population.� Xu’s program allows for her to work in 196 for a year. Xing has a three-year limit, renewable at the end of each academic year. There are 175 students enrolled in Chinese language electives in those two middle schools, said Shane Schmeichel, the magnet school program director. At Diamond Path, students receive 90 minutes a week of Chinese language instruction. At the middle schools, that amount jumps to 100 minutes. There are two other Chinese teachers - John Pan teaches at the elementary level and Maureen Wu teaches at the middle school level. Both are district-funded staff. The district’s high school program will serve to continue the Mandarin instruction for those elementary and middle school students already in their own programs. Schmeichel said the teachers staffing that program will be hired as district employees. In essence, as China and the United States suss out their relationship with one another, and as China becomes more important on a global economic scale, having an understanding of that nation’s culture and language could possibly set up a student for global competitiveness. To know that which is outside the hive is to know the future. Or, as Xing says, “The world is getting smaller.�

“I don’t feel as homesick because of it,� she said. As for the schedule, Xu said lunch time is quite different. In China, she said, lunch time runs nearly two hours and can accommodate both a meal and a nap. Here, though, they get 20 minutes. “I think I’m used to it now, though,� she said.

Back home, both women teach English at public schools. English is a required course in China. “The whole Chinese nation is studying English,� Xing said. As Mandarin teachers in the United States, Xing and Xu are in a distinct position to teach Americans about modern China while clearing up misconceptions the Chinese may have of Americans. “We’re kind of like cultural ambassadors,� Xu said. “Both of our missions are to promote a mutual understanding.� Xu said her State Department program considers a handful of languages “critical.� In other words, they are important for the furthering of national and international exchange of ideas, diplomacy and understanding. Mandarin Chinese is one of these. Arabic is another.

Opinion Thisweek Columnist Next governor will have to cut spending, raise taxes by Don Heinzman THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

With all the numbers being tossed around during the campaign for Minnesota’s next governor, voters may be confused about the nature of the predicted $5.8 billion structural deficit for fiscal years 2012 and 2013. The staff of the Minnesota Management and Budget office is saying that the $5.8 billion is the difference between what expenditures have been authorized by the Minnesota Legislature and the revenue expected in 2012-13. Tom Emmer, Republican candidate for governor, questions if such a deficit exists and says if there is one, the future growth of the economy will take care of it. Gov. Tim Pawlenty questions the number as well. Emmer says that the state will have $2 billion more to spend

in 2012 and 2013 and that should be enough. Emmer is correct as far as he goes because in June of next year the general fund spending is expected to be $30.7 billion while revenues could be $32.9 billion. What he doesn’t say is that the state is actually spending $34 billion in this budget cycle with money that won’t be there next biennium. One is the one-time federal stimulus money of $2.1 billion. The other is $1.9 billion owed the schools, but never paid. So school districts are borrowing what they need because they didn’t get what they were promised. Add those numbers to the $30.7 billion being spent in this biennium and you come up with $34.6

billion, which is $1.7 billion more than the taxes expected in 2012-13. Now add to that another $1.3 billion owed to the schools plus another $1 billion in one-time human service cuts that expire, plus rising costs of inflation not factored into the budget forecasts and there it is: a projected deficit of $5.8 billion. All three candidates must realize that they have to do something drastic to whittle away at the budget deficit, either cut spending or raise taxes. Mark Dayton, DFL-endorsed candidate, and Tom Horner, endorsed by the Independence Party, have said they will raise taxes and cut spending to attack the deficit. Emmer has yet to reveal his plan for getting the state out of this fiscal mess. No redesigning governmental services and combining depart-

ments at the state and county level will yield $5.8 billion. What’s sure to happen is cuts to local governments, delaying aid to school districts, but most significantly cuts in health and human services, which amount to a third of the state’s expenditures. Consider that K-12 and higher education account for 46.8 percent of the expenditures and health and human services account for 29.6 percent, and it’s clear much of the spending cuts will have to come from those two, if taxes are not increased. Don’t be fooled into thinking the Legislature hasn’t already cut expenditures. It cut $516 million in county and state aids and tax credits, $164.7 million in health and human services, $127.7 million to state government and $100.2 million in higher education, among

others for lesser amounts. Legislators will be tempted to make Pawlenty’s one-time unallotment cuts of $800 million permanent, and delaying another $1.4 billion in aid to the schools and accepting Medicaid aid from the federal government to lower the deficit. What’s the bottom line? Be cautious of anyone who says the structural budget deficit of $5.8 billion does not exist and know that next year a thoughtful governor will have to cut spending and raise taxes to keep state government solvent.

Letters Supports Sterner To the editor: When I think about the qualities I want from my state representative, the first thing I want is someone who shares my values. I want someone who cares about making my community better. A person committed to keeping our schools strong and our neighborhoods safe, making sure our business community can thrive, and that we have lakes, parks and trails to enjoy. We are lucky to have that in Rep. Phil Sterner. Sterner loves this community. Before being elected as our new representative, he spent most of his adult life working to make our community better. A District 196 graduate and father of five kids who went to Rosemount High School, he knows how important great schools are for a community. He served as a site council president and a Boy Scout leader, and he founded the RAAA tennis program and served as a program coordinator. A person of faith, he was the youngest member to serve on his church parish council. Sterner is a small-business owner who understands the challenges of today’s economy. He’s an active member of and ambassador for the Apple Valley Chamber of Commerce, and this year was given the 2010 Guardian of Small Business award by the National Federation of Small Businesses. An avid sports and outdoor enthusiast, he served on the Rosemount Parks and Recreation Commission, playing a key role in developing our great system of trails and parks. And while serving his full term on the Rosemount City Council, he helped craft a budget that lowered property taxes while improving city services. Sterner is one of us, a neighbor who’s been working for years to make our community a better place to live, work and raise a family. I can’t think of anyone I’d

rather have representing me and our community at the state Capitol. LIZ CARLSON Rosemount

Hooppaw makes a positive impact To the editor: We are fortunate to have a well-qualified candidate in Clint Hooppaw for City Council in Apple Valley. I have known Hooppaw for several years, and he has had a positive impact on the community and neighborhood we live in. Clint, his wife Jessica, and their daughter Sydney live across the lake from us on Lac Lavon. He, like many others, is always engaged in positive conversations on improving local schools, parks and the high quality of life we enjoy in Apple Valley. I see him working on his home and yard almost every week, making improvements and keeping up appearances. He and his family take pride in their home and neighborhood and we are fortunate to have them as neighbors. Hooppaw also serves in the local Rotary Club and has served as club president and had a great and positive impact on community relations and recruitment of new members and business owners. Hooppaw is open-minded, forward-thinking, fair and a good listener, all vital qualifications needed in today’s local community government. Additionally, Hooppaw is someone who will work together with his team and find common ground to solve local issues and enhance our quality of life in Apple Valley. I encourage others to vote for Clint Hooppaw the first Tuesday in November and know that this candidate represents our community in the highest manner possible. WILL NAGLE Apple Valley

Supports Bergman for City Council To the editor: In 1998 we moved to Apple Valley from Savage, and with any move there is always the process of getting to know your neighbors. After moving in and getting to know our awesome neighbors we decided to organize our neighborhood’s first National Night Out event in August 2002. We had a great turnout, and one of the highlights of the event was having John Bergman and Officer Nick Francis from the Apple Valley Police Department stop by to visit. Bergman’s first order of business when he arrived was to ask if he and Officer Francis could sign our demolition derby car that was being prepared for the Dakota County Fair that year. Having not met him before we found Bergman to be very friendly and easy to talk to. Above all, he truly showed how much he cared about doing a good job for the city. Each year since this first event, Bergman has made it a point to visit our neighborhood for Night to Unite, not only when it was not on his assigned list, but at times when he will simply be driving down the street, see a resident, get out and chat. This is the type of people-oriented focus and commitment we need to continue. I’d like to encourage others to vote for John Bergman for Apple Valley City Council. PAT LABONTE Apple Valley

Partnerships for School Success by Dr. Ben Kanninen SPECIAL TO THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

The opening of a new school year is always a thrill for me, even after 39 years as a teacher, coach and school administrator. Fall brings a sense of renewal. In education, everything is fresh and new: new teachers, new classes and new possibilities for students and their families.  My wife is also a retired educator, so at our house we think of the new year as starting in September and not in January as is true for most.   I’m absolutely convinced that a person’s chances for success in life, however measured, are greatly enhanced by having a good education. Then, too, education is absolutely crucial to the development of an informed electorate and to the well-being of society as a whole.  All of us as taxpayers and citizens have a stake in public education. For that reason, it’s critical that we all support it.   Looking back, I know that public education is better now than it ever has been. Teachers are better prepared, schools are focused, the curriculum is integrated and instructional techniques are increasingly sophisticated. Years ago, schools and even individual classrooms operated with a certain autonomy. Little thought was given to the need for curriculum and instruction to be both horizontally and vertically integrated.   Fortunately, things have changed. Today, what your son or daughter (or grandson or granddaughter) learns in fourth grade will build on what he or she learned in third grade and will anticipate the material taught the following year.   In today’s schools, standards are high and expectations for students are great.  Most still do well, but not every student is finding success.  Often this is because the student is not coming to school fully ready to learn.  I’ve never met a parent that didn’t want their children to do well in school, but I have met some who lacked the wherewithal to support learning in a positive way.  That’s in part why 360 Communities developed and continues to offer the Partners for Success program to districts across Dakota County.  The program works directly with the families, aiming to strengthen the ability of parents and other family members to partner with schools in support of learning.   360 Communities employs Fam-

ily Support Workers in nearly 40 schools across eight area school districts. These workers identify struggling students and connect with families, offering assistance with the issues and barriers to learning. They also facilitate communication between the family and the school. Each Family Support Worker develops a relationship with 15 to 20 families, forging a partnership for improved learning. Last year, nearly 750 families connected in this way, helping to ensure improved performance for their students and positive results for their schools.  The experience of Inver Grove Heights Middle School Family Support Worker Leah Knutson is a good illustration of how Partners for Success works to the benefit of students, families and schools. Last year, an assistant principal at her school told Knutson about a student who was falling behind in his classes.  Also, the boy’s father was a single parent battling a brain tumor.  She and the father jointly developed a Family Learning Plan for the boy. It allowed the father to support his son by providing structure while implementing reasonable consequences and rewards.  The family’s nightly routines helped the boy with homework completion, which in turn led to improved grades. He finished the year earning all B’s and a C, a marked improvement over his previous performance.  Even better, he and his father established the habit of collaboration that will continue to serve them well.  Family Support Workers like Knutson are dedicated, bright and well prepared for the work they do. Many are bilingual, and all have degrees either in education or related fields like social work.  Most have previously worked with social service agencies; others were teachers.  Lisa Lusk supervises the elementary school Family Support Workers.  Anika Rychner directs those working in the secondary schools and heads the Partners for Success program. Both bring a wealth of experience and knowledge to the task.  For more information about the program or about how you can help, go to 360communities.org or call (952) 985-5300.

Caponi Art Park in Eagan is offering a slice of life from the Middle Ages, minus the Black Plague-ravaged corpses. The park is partnering with the Society for Creative Anachronism, an historical recreation group, to host the Medieval Fair from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 3. The family-friendly living-history event, now in its third year in Eagan, will see the park transformed into a medieval village with authentic pavilions, period clothing and demonstrations.

Coin striking, juggling and storytelling have been added this year, and past Medieval Fair favorites such as period games, music and dance, and an armorer demo are back, said SCA member

Farmington plays host to Yellow Ribbon Summit THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

nine cities in central Minnesota. Sartell hosted a videoconference in December 2009 that gave 120 deployed service members the chance to see and talk with family members. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have been able to network and serve the families in need â&#x20AC;Ś and it is easier on paper than practice,â&#x20AC;? Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Driscoll said. Farmington Mayor Todd Larson said it was an honor to be recognized as the first Yellow Ribbon City in 2008, but it was a greater honor to host the summit. Proud to have Annette Kuyper as its local leader of the Farmington Warrior to Citizen â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a community support group for military members and families â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Larson said Farmington has now become a role model across the state. Businesses, civic groups, churches or citizens can get involved as volunteers or work to form a Yellow Ribbon Network by contacting Kuyper at (651) 282-4002 or visiting www.beyondtheyellowribbon. org. Pawlenty said all Yellow Ribbon Networks are working toward one common goal, and that is to â&#x20AC;&#x153;minimize the pain for service members and their families while addressing all the challenges.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to provide care and support for individuals and our communities â&#x20AC;Ś because there are incrediblybrave heroes who raise their hand and put their life on the line for our country,â&#x20AC;? Pawlenty said. Challenging the state to respond, Pawlenty said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;We all have to look in the mirror and say, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;What can we do?â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;?

Farmington, the first Minnesota city to be named a Yellow Ribbon City, played host to the first Yellow Ribbon Summit on Wednesday, Sept. 22, at Boeckman Middle School. Counties, cities and companies were recognized for their ongoing support of service members and military family members, including Lakeville and Dakota County Technical College. Hundreds showed up to the event where more than 30 entities were officially given a Yellow Ribbon designation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Their action plans demonstrate a commitment and understanding that they are suited to support their military families today and into the future,â&#x20AC;? said Annette Kuyper, event organizer and state director of military outreach. Gov. Tim Pawlenty spoke during the proclamation ceremony. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am really proud that Farmington was the first Yellow Ribbon City,â&#x20AC;? he said, noting that Farmington and Lakeville recently offered support to one military soldierâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s family after he was injured. The Yellow Ribbon networks were tested when Farmington graduate Kyle Malin lost both legs in an explosion in Afghanistan. Both communities rallied around the family to support his parents, who live in Lakeville, and his wife and two children. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The family was encircled with people who cared,â&#x20AC;? Pawlenty said. Tim Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Driscoll, mayor of Sartell, said his city has been a Yellow Ribbon city for two and a half years in the Central Ribbon Beyond the River Kara Hildreth is at farmingConsortium, which includes ton.thisweek@ecm-inc.com.

a strategy Itasca Group members are considering whether to promote here. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We also found other regions have become very competitive in what they had to offer in attracting businesses to their area,â&#x20AC;? Schmidlkofer said. She added that the Twin Cities region rarely if ever makes the final list of areas business search firms recommend to businesses seeking to relocate or expand. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a clear inventory of assets they can go to, we get eliminated very quickly,â&#x20AC;? she said, adding that some site selectors told her they couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t remember the last time the region was one of the areas in the final round for businesses to consider as a new home. Instead, businesses go to the coasts and to low-taxed Laura Adelmann is at dcedistates. For example, she said in tor@frontiernet.net. Austin, Texas, more than 124,000 jobs have been created     over the last 24 years. Rosemount Mayor Bill Droste said after the meeting that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s visited the Austin area, and business is booming     with no sign of a recession.

and research facility in the University of Minnesota. Port Authority member Kurt Bills said the area also has a great quality of life for families, adding that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy for people to spend weekends at the cabin or enjoy the lakes. To build interest in the region, Schmidlkofer said the Itasca Group intends to develop a brand for the region, distinct factors that celebrate strengths of locating and expanding in the Twin Cities. She said the group is discussing ways to keep current companies and encourage them to expand here. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something our region has not done,â&#x20AC;? she said. Port Authority members were eager to hear the ideas and join in the plan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This shows the reality that we canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do this all by ourselves,â&#x20AC;? Bills said.

Last year, Apple Valley boys soccer coach Chuck Scanlon declared the 2009 team his best ever. It was hard to argue. The team went undefeated and won a state title. He’s coached state champions before, but none went undefeated. Well, look who is undefeated again. Apple Valley is almost halfway to that 24-0 mark again this season. Only three teams have scored against Apple Valley this season: Northfield, Park of Cottage Grove and

There’s no clear-cut favorite in the South Suburban Conference after a month of play in the girls soccer season. Eagan, Burnsville, Eastview and Rosemount are off to promising starts and even Apple Valley has come on strong as of late. “I see the conference as being very close at the end of the season,” Eagan coach Tom Obarski said. “There are no weak teams in the conference, so every game is very important and will be close.”

Eagan early favorite The Wildcats’ only loss in the first month of play was to Woodbury on Aug. 31. Otherwise it’s been convincing win after convincing win. “I think we have excellent team leadership from our seniors,” Obarski said. “I also think we have some good experience back from last year’s team.” Seniors Molly Sparks, Bre Steele and Haley Slater are making sure their last year of high school is something special. And sophomore Kaleigh Peterson is helping them do it. Goalies Leigha Jacobson (three) and Kristen Knutson (seven) have combined for 10 shutouts this season. Obarski believes the Wildcats can challenge for the Section 3AA title again this season. But like everyone else, the ball needs to bounce in favor of the Wildcats. They’re fully aware that

The Eastview football team notched its first win of the season on Sept. 17 against a very disappointed Eagan team. Eastview led the entire game, but Eagan made things interesting with 14 points in the fourth quarter. With little time remaining, a 37-yard touchdown pass to Matt Hentges from Jameson Parsons on fourth down put the score at 23-21. A successful onside kick in the final minute gave the Wildcats some life, but Eastview’s defense held strong for a 23-21 win. “We were fortunate to come out on top,” Eastview coach Kelly Sherwin said. “Just knowing the fact that we’re able to respond to win a game like that especially with the two weeks we’ve had is going to be a tremendous boost for us.” The Lightning were coming off two disappointing losses to Eden Prairie and Lakeville North. “We’re finding our niche,” Sherwin said. “We may use a little bit more spread and our biggest surprise this game was the running of (Derek) Shatz.” Shatz had a 1-yard touchdown run and played a key role in the game. Eastview’s defense held Parsons to 183 yards passing and 32 rushing. “You got to try to pres-

Irish second at Apple Jack by Andy Rogers THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

The Rosemount boys cross country team was chasing Edina all afternoon at the Apple Jack Invitational in Lakeville on Sept. 18. Rosemount gave Edina, ranked in the top 30 in the United States, a good challenge for a little over half the race, but came up short, finishing second. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We finished five down through four runners, but they got us in the fifth,â&#x20AC;? coach Chris Harder said. Shane McCallum had a solid third-place finish ahead of a handful of ranked runners and Nathan Rock was 10th. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Both those guys were in great position at the mile and then competed to the finish,â&#x20AC;? Harder said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Their times were especially good considering the altered course due to the rain and field drainage.â&#x20AC;? Calvin Lehn (17th) and Chandler Dye (23rd) kept pace with the Edina runners throughout. All-state track runners Chris Mergens (57th place) and John Evenocheck (55th place) both went out and ran hard. Trevor Capra finished in 79th.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We made some huge gains on teams we competed against a few weeks ago at the Irish Invitational,â&#x20AC;? Harder said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lakeville North and Minnetonka are within our sights and we beat Armstrong by 51 after losing by six a few weeks ago.â&#x20AC;? Ashley Comstock made a strong move in the second half of the race and briefly was in the top 10. She finished 20th. Hannah Grim was two seconds behind her at 21st. Tori Grund was 41st, Laura Dennis 57th, Bridget Burkard 68th, Sara Feeser 96th and Emily Davis 98th. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nine of those schools were ranked or are ranked this week,â&#x20AC;? Harder said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were able to knock out ranked Edina by 10 points.â&#x20AC;?

in 11th place, knocking 27 seconds off his 2009 best. It put him at No. 3 on the Eagan honor roll. Kevin Chan came in 42nd, John Schultz 50th and Justin Renneke 65th. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is really an exciting time at (Eagan) right now,â&#x20AC;? Graham said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most of the racers have dramatically improved fitness levels.â&#x20AC;? In the girls race, the Wildcats finished in fifth place ahead of Minnetonka but behind Andover, Prior Lake, Wayzata and winner Lakeville South. Alanna Stangl was the top finisher for Eagan, coming in 15th. Danielle Anderson was two seconds behind her at 17th. Michaela Banz was 25th, Elizabeth Frick 30th, Heather Goff 73rd, Phoebe Craig 111th and Hannah Olson 115th.

COLE LOVES TO PLAY AND GO FOR RIDES! This week MVHS is celebrating “Less Adoptable Animal Week.” This means our senior pets, special needs animals, big black dogs, etc., are being highlighted and adopters will receive 20% off their adoption fee! We want people to take a second look at the animals that are often overlooked. One such pet is Cole. ���� �� � ���������� ���� ����� ��� ���� �� �� �� ������ ��� ������� ���� �� ����� ���� �������� ��� ����� ���� ���� �� ��� �������� �� ����� �� ���� ������ �� �������� ��� ���� �� ��� ���� �� ����� ����� ���� ����� ���� ��� ���������� ���� ���� ������� ��������� ������ �������� ������ �� ��� �� �������� �� ���� ����� � ���� ������� �������� �� ����� �� ��� ��� �������� ������� ���� � ��� ����� ��� �� ���� �� ��� �� ��� ���� ���� �� �� �������� ��� ���� �� � ���� ������� ���� �� �������� ��� ���� ��� �������� ���� ���� � ���� �� ���� ���� �������� ��� �� �� ������ ���� �� ����� ��� ���� ���� ���� � ��� ����� ��� ����� ������ ��� �����

A labor of love

Owners Wanda Johnson and Dewey Johnson renovated the dining room at Rascalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Apple Valley Bar and Grill on their own.

Owners Wanda Oland and Dewey Johnson renovate Rascalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Apple Valley Bar and Grill on their own Johnson created a new space by dividing the room with a retaining wall, which will allow parties to have more privacy. Another wall was added to conceal the kitchen as well. The most difficult aspect of the remodel wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the labor itself, Johnson said. Rather, it was having to work late at night when the bar and grill were closed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In this economy, we canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t close the doors, which restricted my hours,â&#x20AC;? he said. The couple declined to reveal the cost of the remodel, but Oland would say that it was between 60 and 75 percent less than what it would cost for a contractor and retail furnishings. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If we would have paid retail and hired someone, we would have gone out of business,â&#x20AC;? Oland said. Johnson said he developed his passion for carpentry as

THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

When owners Wanda Oland and Dewey Johnson renovated the dining room at Rascalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Apple Valley Bar and Grill, it was more than an expense â&#x20AC;&#x201C; it was a labor of love. Every detail, from the retaining wall to the dining tables, were hand-crafted by Johnson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s amazing how he takes something normal and plain, and turns it into art,â&#x20AC;? Oland said. The design of Rascalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dining room was inspired by the Arts and Crafts Movement, a design movement that flourished between 1880 and 1910. The room is filled with pieces that Johnson handcrafted, such as a decorative buffet and a hand-carved mantel shelf. An antique Danish dining side table that Johnson restored also sits in the room.

In addition to building pieces of furniture, Johnson restored several pieces such as a Danish dining side table, which is used by the wait staff. high school student. After that he studied industrial arts for a few years and started a general contracting and a remodeling business, which he owned for about 30 years. Although he sold the company to his business partner before opening Rascalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in 1994, Johnson never dropped his love for building and remodeling. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The most rewarding thing is how much people enjoy and appreciate the effort that is put into it,â&#x20AC;? he said.

The dining room renovation, which took two months to complete, is the fifth remodel since the restaurant opened 16 years ago. Rascalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s was a large saloon that eventually evolved into a bar and grill, Oland said. Still, the restaurant had â&#x20AC;&#x153;very little ambiance,â&#x20AC;? she said. The new dining roomâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s arts and crafts style makes the entire establishment warmer and more inviting, Oland said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People came here to eat because they liked the food,â&#x20AC;?

she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now we can invite them to have dinner.â&#x20AC;? Rascalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interior is not the only thing that has changed over the last decade and a half. When Rascalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s opened, County Road 42 and Cedar Avenue had not been fully developed, and Central Village, Apple Valleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new downtown east of Cedar and south of 42, was not even a concept. Additionally, only three establishments had liquor licenses in Apple Valley at the time, Oland said. The competition has since

grown to 19 establishments, she said. Oland said the new development and the recession hurt the businessâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bottom line, but that it is recovering. Oland said the restaurant was unable to generate a profit in 2007 or 2008, but recovered in 2009. â&#x20AC;&#x153;...We have survived due to our customersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; loyalty,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The fact that we survived is the important thing.â&#x20AC;?
