out in recent weeks. From the Upper Midwest Athletic Conference softball games to teams from Greenbush, people are coming from all over Minnesota looking for dry grass to play their scheduled games on. “Everyone needs field space right now,� Orr said. The Sports Dome has reached its profit goal for the year already. “We reduced our rates to help people out,� Orr said. “We could do the opposite, but no one budgeted extra for this. We reduced our rates (20-25 percent) to help people out.� The extra funds should help the Irish Sports Dome make some improvements over the summer. They’re planning on adding new nets to help divide the field, new fences for the softball fields and new benches. Next fall they’re adding an adult flag football league, and the Minnesota Twins are planning on running camps and clinics in fall and winter. More information is at www. Contact Orr at or by phone at 651-423-0540.

Perhaps the most popular place in Rosemount this month has been the Irish Sports Dome. With winter way overextending its welcome, sports across Minnesota have been calling Irish Sports Dome general manager Chris Orr to see if there’s any opening.

When the snow storm hit last week, “my phone never stopped ringing,� Orr said. “People are already starting to look into the beginning of May.

Major crash on McAndrews

Police seize stolen vehicle, drugs in Apple Valley arrest Apple Valley police say they seized a stash of methamphetamine while arresting a man suspected of stealing a relativeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pickup truck. Christopher A. Siemers, 30, of South St. Paul, was charged last week with two felonies â&#x20AC;&#x201C; motor vehicle theft and drug possession â&#x20AC;&#x201C; in connection with the incident. The criminal complaint gives the following account: An Apple Valley police officer happened upon the stolen 1997 Dodge Ram truck, which was parked on the side of the road, while on routine patrol Feb. 12. The officer ran a license check on the truck, which revealed that Siemers was a suspect in the theft. Siemers, who was standing near the truck, was placed under arrest and searched, and during the search police found a metal box in Siemersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; jacket pocket containing a glass pipe, three hypodermic needles, and several plastic baggies with approximately two grams of a white crystalline substance which tested positive for methamphetamine, according to the complaint. At the time of his arrest, Siemers claimed that the relative who owns the truck gave him permission to drive it. The investigating officer subsequently contacted that relative, who confirmed that the truck was stolen, and that the numerous attempts heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d made to have Siemers return the truck had been unsuccessful. If convicted of the two felony counts, Siemers faces a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison and fines of $20,000. â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Andrew Miller

Police, fire and emergency medical workers responded to a three-vehicle accident with multiple injuries at about 2:30 p.m. Saturday, April 6, at McAndrews Road and Garden View Drive in Apple Valley. According to Apple Valley police, a Jeep Liberty traveling westbound on McAndrews collided with a Dodge Caravan when the southbound Caravan failed to stop for a red light; the force of the initial collision then pushed the Caravan into a Ford Windstar. The Caravanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s driver, a 28-year-old Apple Valley woman in the employ of a group home for adults, was transporting four of the group homeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s clients at the time of the crash. A helicopter was summoned to the scene for emergency airlift of one of the victims. Investigation continues as the Minnesota State Patrol undertakes a reconstruction of the crash scene.

Opinion Funding pre-kindergarten scholarships is a necessary step A growing number of scientific findings on early brain development and the ability of children to learn more earlier is leading educational and business leaders to push for more state funding to educate 3- and 4-year-old children, particularly from communities with concentrations of poor families. Experts say that at the age of 5 a child’s brain is 90 percent developed, enabling the child to learn numerical concepts, good behavior and how to get along with other children. Gov. Mark Dayton and Minnesota Education Commissioner Brenda Cassellius are urging legislators to approve more dollars for pre-kindergarten scholarships and for all-day, everyday kindergarten. Last month this newspaper’s editorial board, in keeping with its year-long educational agenda, endorsed full funding for all-day, everyday kindergarten for all students in Minnesota. We also favor more pre-K funding, because half of Minnesota’s children are not prepared for kindergarten, according to the Department of Education. Dayton wants the Legislature to fund $44 million to allocate 10,000 pre-K scholarships intended for children from families in poverty. These scholarships would be run through the popular Parent Aware program in which parents

ECM Editorial rate the providers of pre-K programs. Parents would select from a list of providers rated 4 and above. We are concerned, however, that scholarships in the governor’s bill are intended mainly for children living in communities where there are concentrations of poverty, possibly excluding poor students living in middle-income communities across the state. We urge the Office of Early Learning at the Department of Education to distribute the scholarships equitably across the state. Economists Arthur Rolnick and Rob Grunewald have drawn national attention, particularly from the business community, with their claim that for every dollar invested in early-childhood education for low-income children in high-quality programs, there is a return on investment of $16. Some critics question spending state dollars on programs whose effectiveness, they say, is disproven by studies. They also claim that students who do not have early-childhood education usually catch up with those who do by third grade. A highly interesting study by James Heckman, Nobel economist, found that children from higher-income families

who were observed and tested from ages 3 to 18 scored much higher than students in lower-income families. What’s stunning is that children from families living in concentrated poverty areas who miss the pre-K education step never catch up with children from higher income families who have pre-K. As reported in the New York Times, Heckman and others confirm that investment in early education of disadvantaged children pays extremely high returns down the road. Cassellius says there is plenty of research to support investment in young learners as a critical way to close the achievement gap and improve student outcomes. She points to a study in North Carolina, where low-income students who attended preschool had higher math and reading scores in third grade than their peers. A study in Michigan traced two groups of low-income students, those who attended preschool and those who didn’t. The study found that at age 40, those who attended preschool had higher levels of education, earned more money, were more likely to own a home and were less likely to be incarcerated. Minnesota already has a pre-K program that’s offered through 300 public school districts and is funded by local and state funds. Early Childhood Family Education works with parents and

their children from birth to kindergarten. It is based on the belief that the family provides the child’s first and most significant learning. This emphasis on pre-K education is in line with what is happening nationally. President Obama proposes to expand early-childhood education to provide high-quality pre-K for 4-year-olds from families whose incomes are at or below 200 percent of the poverty line. Through a Race to the Top federal grant of $10.7 million, more pre-K scholarships for poor children in Minnesota are being awarded from 2012 to 2015. As part of the grant, a special committee designates the families that should receive the scholarships. We believe spending money at the state level for 10,000 pre-K scholarships targeting children living in poverty areas is a necessary investment in view of the fact that half of Minnesota’s children are not ready for kindergarten. We urge people who agree with this view to let their legislators know that funding for pre-K education is a necessary first step to narrowing the achievement gap between have and have-not students.

Letters Kids ’n Kinship depends on its volunteers To the editor: April 21-27 is National Volunteer Week and as a board member and chair of Kids ’n Kinship, I want to thank and express my appreciation to the Kids ’n Kinship volunteers/ mentors and all volunteers for their public service. It is the generous giving of time from volunteers that strengthens our communities – whether it be working with children, the elderly, or the disenfranchised, or protecting our environment and the animals. I am very proud and honored to be a part of Kids ’n Kinship – a youth mentoring organization in Dakota County. Its mission is to provide friendships (mentors) to children ages 5-16 who are in need of a positive adult role model. Mentors can be individuals, couples or families who are able to share just a few hours each week with a young person. Activities can include sports, games, crafts, being outdoors, or just hanging out. Thanks to our wonderful volunteers, Kids ’n Kinship currently has 80 young people matched with adults. And thanks to these volunteers, the waiting list for mentees gets shorter and shorter. But the need for mentors and volunteers is ongoing. National Volunteer Week is not just an opportunity to express gratitude for all volunteers, but to encourage volunteerism. As any volunteer will tell you, “You always get back more than you give.” If you’re interested in learning more about mentoring and Kids ’n Kinship, you are invited to our next information session Saturday, April 27, 2-2:45

p.m., at Wescott Library in Eagan, 1340 Wescott Road. You can also check out our website JANET LEKSON Board member and chair Kids ’n Kinship

Road salts affecting water quality To the editor: I am writing in regard to the current and unfortunately large amount of salt used for ice and snow melting during the winter and the effects it is having on water quality and aquatic life. Every year about 350,000 tons of salt is applied to roads for de-icing in Minnesota. Roughly 70 percent of this sodium chloride runs off into nearby lakes, aquifers, and other water sources. Since salt dissolves in water and settles, the salinity of these water sources is only going to increase. Salinity of these water sources has been steadily rising since road salt first began being used in the 1950s and about 30 lakes in Minnesota were found to have excessive amounts of chloride in them mainly due to road salt as noted in a 2010 study performed by the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency. Chloride has not yet caused any known problems in drinking water for humans but eventually it will. Salinity in water is only going to increase as time goes on unless actions are taken to reduce or eliminate the amount of salt we use to melt ice. As snow begins to fall, the demand by the public for more salt on roads increases, but the effects of the extensive use of salt and the harmful effects it is having on water sources

should be known by the public along with other possible ventures that can be used. BRIAN KENOW Apple Valley

Vote for children’s health

To the editor: As a mom of two young children, I am paying close attention to the progress of two bills that will protect children’s health from harmful chemicals. One bill will prohibit formaldehyde, a carcinogen, in children’s shampoo, lotion and other body products. The other will phase out the hormone disrupting chemical BPA in infant formula cans and other food packaging for young children. As a state we need to look at and take action to reduce children’s risk for diseases and conditions linked to these harmful substances. The BPA and formaldehyde bills will do a lot to protect children who are more vulnerable to health effects from toxic chemical exposure. I hope Rep. Tara Mack, R-Apple Valley, will vote for these common sense bills that will soon be up RICHARD IFFERT for a vote in Minnesota Eagan House. DIANA SPURGEON Apple Valley

Health care in the hands of government? To the editor: Ruth Carlson’s letter to the editor should have everyone mystified. In her letter, Carlson berates U.S. Rep. John Kline and the GOP for not giving her or others health insur-

ance. Carlson objects that not all folks do not carry insurance. While some people often choose not to purchase insurance, others rely on free health care which is now required for the indigent. In my humble opinion, Congress has no constitutional authority to do what Carlson asks. Surely if health care is to be given to everyone then myriad necessities such as housing, food and transportation must be given to those without. Ultimately no one would have to be a productive citizen since the government would take care of all. It is most ironic that a great statesman, Margaret Thatcher, would pass on at this time. Often, she correctly asserted and demonstrated that government agencies are wasteful, inefficient and ineffective. Is it possible that our founders understood that the fundamental human condition does not change but that Carlson has now found a way to create a new human condition? The last thing that Carlson should desire is health care in the hands of government agencies. One must pause and ask what provokes such odious utterances.

The way of the people is not through guns To the editor: A March 29 letter writer states that the second amendment “is the reason we exist as a country.” This ignores the fact that the Continental Congress declared independence in 1776 and the Constitution was not ratified until 1787. The writer says “the people should be allowed to defend ourselves from outside and inside forces that jeopardize the American way of life.” Regarding outside forces, we maintain the most powerful military on Earth. I’m not sure of the “inside forces” to which he refers, but law enforcement agencies are charged by citizens, through their elected representatives, to maintain law and order. Vigilantism does not appear to be the method preferred by the majority. He says gun control is “the act of taking away weapons from people.” This is a very limited definition, particularly since current proposals include expansion of background checks, limitations on

sales of high capacity clips, and a ban on the sale of semi-automatic weapons. None of these involve taking guns away from people. He concludes, questionably, that since there are about 300 million guns and 300 million citizens, the majority of citizens own at least one gun, then asks: “Is it the American way to deprive the majority of what it wants?” Well, polls indicate a huge majority favors expanded background checks and a smaller majority favors limitations on high capacity clips. He returns to the idea that: “The right to own guns is our last safeguard from a government that loses sight of what the people want.” The way the people of this country have elected to direct the priorities and actions of its representatives is through the ballot box, not the barrel of a gun. We are part of “the government.” And if he really thinks citizens must be armed to protect themselves from “the government,” then we better be willing to allow private ownership of automatic weapons, tanks, bombers, artillery, drones and any of the long list of weaponry available to our military. Personally, I have a much higher opinion of the patriotism of our military and elected leadership. KAREN SAMES Eagan

Role of economic demand

increased, which is a good sign. That sign is reflected in greater demand for goods and services for many local business owners and greater certainty about our economic future and consumer confidence. I suggest the strategy of priming the economic pump is working, and that doesn’t require the usual remedy of “cutting business taxes.” Maybe if we increased the minimum wage we’d see an even greater increase in economic demand and employment. It could sure reduce the misery index for many low-wage families, and increase their domestic stability. BETTY FEDDE Eagan

The bad Samaritan? To the editor: In a season when there seems to be agreement that something needs to be done to help immigrants, we heard recently from a critic of efforts to integrate immigrants. Her argument was not against any changes to law, which would reduce penalties on those who break voting laws, because there are no such changes proposed. Indeed, the desire by non-citizens to acquire the training and driver’s licenses required to get insurance to protect you and me in any accident should be encouraged, not discouraged. Instead, the criticism seemed to be directed against “Latin Americans” from “the south.” But didn’t we just vote last year against reckless voting restrictions that harm young people, seniors and lower-income people? Didn’t the people of Minnesota speak decisively against further restrictions on legal voting? Is somebody ignoring recent Minnesota history? The writer complained about “unemployment payments, food stamps, cash assistance, and medical insurance.” How difficult should we make it for somebody who is starving to survive? A couple millennia ago, Luke the physician reported Jesus asking “Which of these was a good neighbor?” for a traveler who had been beaten. An expert in the law replied, “The one who had mercy on him.” Jesus was reported to reply, “Go and do likewise.”

To the editor: As a small-business owner, I am encouraged by the increase in the number of jobs in our local economy. For that reason, I could wish that all the jobs were as goodpaying as they once were. The statistic that the minimum-wage of the 1960s in today’s dollars, adjusted for inflation, would run to over $11 per hour. Average wages for those of us who aren’t in the top 20 percent of earners, have fallen over the last decade. During this time, wealthier Americans have seen their incomes grow by thousands of dollars and their tax rates have fallen, according to studies by the IRS and the state Revenue Department. In spite of these phenomena, although aver- PAUL HOFFINGER age incomes have fallen, Eagan employment has slowly

Public Safety Burnsville chiropractor’s license suspension stayed Gear had inappropriate relationships with two patients by John Gessner SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

A Burnsville chiropractor who had a sexual relationship with one patient and inappropriate nonsexual relations with another will be allowed to continue practicing under a settlement with the Minnesota Board of Chiropractic Examiners. The board’s one-year suspension of Angela Marie Gear’s license was stayed under a Feb. 14 settlement agreement.

The settlement includes several conditions and a $3,000 civil fine. Gear practiced in Eagan for 11 years and has a practice listed with the board as Gear Chiropractic Care, 14623 County Road 11 in Burnsville. Gear had sex with a patient within two years of ending their doctorpatient relationship, according to the board. The pair also exchanged sensitive personal information — some sexually explicit — from March 12 to May

27, 2009, when Gear treated her five times for spinal disorders, the board said. The patient was a massage therapy student who had taken Gear’s clinical science courses at an area school in 2008. They became friends. Gear received gifts from another patient she’d treated for 10 years beginning in 2000. The woman was treated with chiropractic for musculoskeletal pain and with acupuncture for emotional health problems.

Gifts included childcare and home-maintenance services and clothing for Gear’s children, the board found. She accepted $3,000 in May 2010 to buy a vehicle but said it was a loan she’d been repaying in $100 installments. According to the board, the woman ended her relationship with Gear at the recommendation of her psychologist and psychiatrist, who believed it had grown “inappropriately close.” Gear said she ended

the relationship because the patient didn’t follow her recommendations. Under conditions of the stayed suspension, Gear must have a third adult in the room when examining or treating a patient. An exception is at her Burnsville location, where the door to the treatment room must remain open during patient encounters and the clinic manager must have direct line of sight into the treatment room. Gear must complete

No criminal charges will be filed in Eagan death by Jessica Harper SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

No charges will be filed in the death of Eagan resident Jonathan Thomas Lahr. The 36-year-old died after an altercation with his roommate on Jan. 1. “This decision should not be viewed as condoning violence in any form,” Dakota County Attorney James Backstrom said in a statement. “Under these facts, however, we have concluded at this time that no crime can be proven beyond a reason-

able doubt in reference to this incident.” Backstrom’s office believes the following occurred: Lahr and roommate, Samuel Petersen, 28, along with Petersen’s father and a female friend, went to four bars on the afternoon and evening of the incident. All four people consumed “a significant amount of alcohol” during that time. Shortly before 11 p.m., the group was asked to leave a Bloomington bar because the woman had become disruptive. Prior to leaving, Pe-

tersen and Lahr began to argue, and Petersen apparently pushed Lahr to the ground. The four took a cab to the Eagan apartment where Lahr and Petersen lived. Petersen told police that shortly after they entered the apartment, he and Lahr began to argue again and that Lahr hit him. Petersen said he struck back, punching Lahr in the head and knocking him to the ground. Petersen told police Lahr became unconscious

and Petersen thought he had passed out from being intoxicated. Petersen said he left the room to cool off and checked on Lahr about 15 minutes later. At that time, he realized Lahr wasn’t breathing and called 911. The other two people in the apartment apparently didn’t witness the altercation. No physical evidence exists to counter the information Petersen gave police, Backstrom said. The Hennepin County medical examiner classified the death as a homicide and concluded Lahr

died of a heart attack brought on by coronary artery blockage, alcoholarrested breathing or an injury suffered during the altercation. However, Lahr had minimal external injuries as a result of being hit by Petersen. Backstrom determined that no criminal charges are possible in the case now because of the inability to disprove a claim of self-defense. Jessica Harper is at jessica. or

Jeffrey Alan Sanders II faces another felony for unlawful possession of an electronic incapacitation device by a felon, which holds a maximum penalty of five years and $10,000. Sanders was pulled over in Inver Grove Heights for not wearing a seat belt and the officer noticed a black device in the waistband of Sanders’ pants.

When asked, Sanders admitted that it was a stun gun, according to the criminal complaint. The officer ran a driver’s license check and BCA criminal history report finding several felony convictions dating back to 2003.

The officer smelled alcohol and noticed signs Wetch was in-

Fairview and Sanford Health merger talks end by Lisa Kaczke SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Sanford Health ended merger talks with Fairview Health Services days after its proposal was met with dissent. Fairviewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s possible merger with the University of Minnesota, proposed by U President Eric Kaler in January, has also come to an end. In the wake of the April 10 announcement, Fairview is now turning to the search for a new CEO. Fairview has been without a CEO since mid-2012, when CEO Mark Eustis stepped down following Minnesota Attorney General Lori Swansonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s scathing report on Fairviewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s use of debt collector Accretive. The merger decisions came

days after Swanson held a tense public hearing, grilling Sanford executives on the South Dakota health systemâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s connection to philanthropist and University of Minnesota alumnus T. Denny Sanford. In addition, legislation was introduced that would prevent Fairview from merging with an out-of-state system for a year. Sanford Health CEO Kelby Krabbenhoft wrote in an April 10 letter that Sanford Health goes â&#x20AC;&#x153;where we are invited.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am now concerned that the good reputation of Sanford may be injured by a process that only intended the highest of ideals and integrity for what we believed to be a compelling solution to the challenges facing health care delivery today and in the future,â&#x20AC;? he wrote.

Swanson said in a statement on April 10 that she hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t spoken with either Fairview or University of Minnesota officials since receiving Krabbenhoftâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s letter. Fairview board Chairman Chuck Mooty said he was disappointed in Sanfordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision to withdraw from the merger discussions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our initial findings about a Fairview/Sanford partnership were positive and the Fairview Board was committed to fully understanding its potential benefit to our patients and communities,â&#x20AC;? Mooty said in a statement. â&#x20AC;&#x153;However, we respect Sanfordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision and our boardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s current assessment of a Sanford partnership will stop.â&#x20AC;? Fairview will also now focus

on strengthening its partnership with the University of Minnesota. It acquired the University of Minnesota Medical Center in 1997. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Clearly, we need to ensure strategic alignment between us before we can advance new ideas for the future,â&#x20AC;? Mooty said in the statement. â&#x20AC;&#x153;However, we feel it is not the time to discuss any proposal that involves the university acquiring Fairview. As a result, our work to evaluate that proposal will stop.â&#x20AC;? Despite the conclusion to the merger proposals, Rep. Joe Atkins, DFL-Inver Grove Heights, is moving forward with his legislation to regulate mergers between Minnesota and out-ofstate health systems because the issue continues to exist.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Another non-Minnesotabased entity could still try to acquire Fairview and we would once again be in the same potential situation where the University of Minnesota Medical Center would be not under Minnesota control,â&#x20AC;? he said in a statement. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The bottom line is that the University of Minnesota Hospitals ought to always be controlled by folks based right here in Minnesota.â&#x20AC;? He is planning to hold hearings in the House Commerce Committee and is requesting Mooty attend, according to the statement.

Burnsville sticks with VenuWorks for arts center management by John Gessner SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

The company that manages Burnsvilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Performing Arts Center will be offered the job again, but with new contract terms and at least one City Council memberâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s admonition that the facility stop losing money. The council voted unanimously April 16 to negotiate a new contract with VenuWorks, the Iowa-based arena, theater and convention-center firm that has managed the PAC since it opened in January 2009. The council chose VenuWorks over St. Paul-based LHR Hospitality Management, which specializes in hotel management. VenuWorks was recommended by a committee that included top city staffers and three members of the PACâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s citizen advisory commission. The group interviewed both companies, which answered the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s request for proposals. VenuWorksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; current contract ends Dec. 31. The five-year contract gave both parties annual termination options after two

years. This time the council ordered city staffers to negotiate a contract of no more than two years, with renewal options. The city will also seek to negotiate new performance measures recommended by the advisory commission. They call on VenuWorks to boost adjusted gross revenue, minimize â&#x20AC;&#x153;dark daysâ&#x20AC;? when spaces arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t rented, boost rentals during nonpeak times and find other revenue sources, including sponsorships and naming rights. Council Member Dan Kealey said itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to end the city-subsidized operating losses the PAC has recorded each year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The number we expect is a zero operating loss, period,â&#x20AC;? said Kealey, who also suggested the shortened contract period. City-hired consultants predicted annual losses of up to $350,000 even before the PAC opened. Progress made under VenuWorks isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t enough, Kealey said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not traveling that road as quickly as weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re sort of scratching our way there.â&#x20AC;? Sal Mondelli, who chairs the

Burnsville Performing Arts Center Advisory Commission, told the council that in round numbers, annual losses have shrunk from $540,000 to $430,000 to $350,000 to $250,000. The year-end projection for 2013 is $239,000, which would beat the budgeted forecast, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So from a business perspective, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going in the right direction?â&#x20AC;? Mayor Elizabeth Kautz asked. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yes, maâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;am,â&#x20AC;? Mondelli replied. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The first few years were a little bit rocky,â&#x20AC;? he said. The PAC has gone through three executive directors and needed time to establish itself with booking agents and acts, he said. VenuWorks still doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t attract enough concerts or corporate events, though it does well with theater, Kealey said. He lavished praise on current Executive Director Brian Luther, crediting him with the improved performance. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The question is, does he have the right company behind him that has the toolsâ&#x20AC;? to make more progress? Kealey said. Council Member Mary Sher-

ry recalled getting citizen complaints about the PACâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s management after it opened. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We took heat galore in many different forms and flavors for a long time,â&#x20AC;? Kealey said, calling Luther a â&#x20AC;&#x153;godsend.â&#x20AC;?

VenuWorks recommended

A sold-out show by comedian Ralphie May on March 30 ended a â&#x20AC;&#x153;record-breakingâ&#x20AC;? first quarter of 2013, the company said. A record 23,691 people visited the PAC from Jan. 1 to March 31, and it notched its strongest first-quarter financial performance, the company said. First-quarter revenue topped last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s by $24,031. In a news release, Luther credited â&#x20AC;&#x153;increased programmingâ&#x20AC;? as well as new menu items â&#x20AC;&#x201C; sandwiches, wraps, salads and desserts â&#x20AC;&#x201C; that boosted food and beverage revenue. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m looking forward to our strongest and most successful financial year,â&#x20AC;? Luther said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Based on the healthy firstquarter results, we anticipate the year will continue to break records. BPAC has experienced tremendous growth and building awareness, which provides more opportunities to bring in additional arts and entertainment.â&#x20AC;?

The companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;consistent improvement in the budget in the last three years,â&#x20AC;? its â&#x20AC;&#x153;solid financialsâ&#x20AC;? and the â&#x20AC;&#x153;strengthâ&#x20AC;? of Luther make it the right choice, said a report from Mondelli and commission Vice Chair Mark Pevan, who served on the team evaluating the proposals. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The team liked the creative ideas and strength in programming daytime use and weddings that LHR Hospitality brought to the table,â&#x20AC;? the report said. But the company lacked a â&#x20AC;&#x153;clear planâ&#x20AC;? for installing an executive director â&#x20AC;&#x153;or much cash on hand in its financials,â&#x20AC;? the report said. Its experience â&#x20AC;&#x153;seemed limited to programming hotels.â&#x20AC;?

Education VMS students named to honor band

SAFE STARTS APRIL IS NATIONAL SAFE DIGGING MONTH When it comes to digging safely, you make the call. Whether you’re working on a large excavation or simply planting a tree in your yard, natural gas and utility line safety should always be job one – and that starts with calling 811 to have your utility lines marked. By doing so, you can be certain where your electric, gas, water and other important lines are located as well as avoid causing serious injuries, service interruptions or possibly costly fines for damaged infrastructure. Make the call. It’s easy, and free. Respect the lines. Dig with care. After all, safety is in your hands … but always on our mind.

Choose kids. Raising the tobacco tax should be an easy choice for our leaders. A $1.50 tobacco tax increase would prevent more than 47,000 Minnesota kids from becoming smokers. Research shows the more cigarettes cost, the less people smoke, especially kids. Let’s choose to protect kids, not tobacco company profits.

Clausen said waiting lists and lottery systems are not equitable ways to offer the program. Whether or not a child has the opportunity to attend all-day kindergarten shouldn’t be determined by what district a child lives in, Clausen said. Clausen’s bill would need $130 million per year to pay for the statewide voluntary offering. Most of that money will be used to pay kindergarten teachers who will deliver the instruction. The Burnsville-EaganSavage School District concluded test scores of the district’s students who all had free, full-day kindergarten in the 2003-04 school year were higher than students who were enrolled in the 2004-05 year when the all-day program was dropped and transfer students who joined the 2003-04 class when it entered first-grade. The boost was sustained over the next three years, with some drop-off by the third grade. The district restored free, full-day kindergarten this school year, using its allocation of compensatory aid — state money based on the number of students who qualify for free or subsidized meals — to fund the program. Clausen said it is extremely important for the state to invest in children because the returns will be paid back through higher achieving students and more skilled workers.

He said studies have shown that better early childhood education results in graduates who go on to have improved basic skills, have fewer criminal justice contacts and earn more money in the workplace. The bill has some Republican supporters. Republican Dean Urdahl, Grove City, is an author of the companion legislation in the House. Another education bill that is receiving attention is a proposed two-year tuition freeze at the University of Minnesota. Clausen said Minnesota graduates carry the third-highest average debt level (nearly $30,000) among students in the 50 states, and Minnesota is fifth highest among the percentage of students carrying college debt (71 percent). The bill is a recognition that tuition costs are burdening students, and Clausen said lawmakers are proposing other measures to help college students. Another provision would allow students to refinance college loans at a lower interest rate. Another would provide a tax credit to Minnesota graduates who stay in the state to work.

The zoo

money to refurbish the Discover Bay and snow monkey exhibits, among other work. Another request to help the zoo in Apple Valley would provide $4.75 million for zoo programs through the Legacy Amendment funding. Clausen said he is supporting both requests since the zoo has such a wide impact on Dakota County. With an estimated 1.4 million visitors annually, the zoo has a $146 million impact on the local economy, according to Clausen, in addition to providing hundreds of jobs.

In the district Clausen plans to have another town hall meeting in the district from 1-2:30 p.m. Saturday, April 27, at Galaxie Library in Apple Valley. He said he will attend as long as the Senate is not in session. The meeting’s focus will be on education, which Clausen said is a very important issue in the area. Clausen said his recent joint town hall with Rep. Anna Wills, R-Apple Valley, was very positive. He viewed the bipartisan meeting as an extension of what he and Wills both campaigned on, which was reaching across the political aisle. “It was a good demonstration of that,” he said of the meeting that attracted about 150 people.

A proposal that could have a significant local impact would be the acceptance of the Minnesota Zoo’s $15 million request to fund capital improvements. Email Tad Johnson at The request includes

Sexual assault, domestic violence training creates better support Lewis House provides advocacy training, help for families in crisis by Theresa Malloy SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

For every domestic violence or sexual assault case in Dakota County, officers call up 360 Communities’ Lewis Houses in Eagan and Hastings so survivors have someone reaching out to them. Whether the victim needs someone to take them to the hospital, court or police interview, Lewis House staff and volunteers standby on the 24/7 support hotline. The message advocates have for survivors is simple: “I believe you. I support you. You do not deserve this.” The statistics reveal that sexual assault is all too common and does not discriminate. It can happen to anyone. An American is sexually assaulted every two minutes, one in four girls is sexually assaulted before the age of 18, only 16 percent of rapes are reported to the police, according to the Minnesota Coalition Against Sexual Assault. Both the Eagan and Hastings Lewis House have been at about capacity through the winter, whereas past years saw

more of a lull during these months, said Ann Sheridan, director of violence prevention and sexual assault at Lewis House. Lewis House offers services to women who experience domestic violence and sexual assault and might need housing or emergency support. Lewis House also works to train and educate community members to become advocates. The 40-hour certificate program is offered twice a year and covers the basics to sexual assault forensic exams, prosecution, visits to Dakota County Community Corrections and sex crime investigations. A former offender talks to each training group and offers a different perspective. Over the years, the program has educated hundreds of people, Sheridan said, and attracts professionals, students and volunteers. “It’s incredibly important,” Sheridan said. E a gan house manager Judy Bowman went through the training and has found it helpful with her work. “Violence is violence,” she said, adding that the training has helped her understand why people might not be trusting for help and support when in this vulnerable situation. Eagan Lewis House coordinator Callie Olson said the role

playing was particularly helpful with her training. “It was helpful to know what victims go through,” she said. While the work at Lewis House is tough, Sheridan said it is rewarding to see women heal and start their lives over. “When they first start working with us, there’s no hope,” she said. “When they leave, there’s more hope.” Bowman said, “It’s powerful to see someone so happy and free of the harness of violence and guilt.” April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month, so Lewis House staff are wearing teal nail polish, the color for sexual assault awareness. Lewis House in Eagan will have its fourth annual Sexual Assault Awareness Walk at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 24. Participants are asked to bring candles or flashlights if the weather is bad and join in a walk from Lewis House to a nearby park. The event is to remember victims, support survivors and shine light on the path of a violence-free community. Janine Montgomery will speak to participants about her own story of surviving sexual assault. For more information, call 651-452-7288. Email Theresa Malloy

Sports Eagle boys going for another SSC track championship

AV girls have some building blocks in place Sprinters Pipkins, Maki will help lead track team

Sprinters lead Apple Valley’s title defense by Mike Shaughnessy SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

It’s not uncommon for coaches to deflect attention from their own teams and onto others. So when Apple Valley boys track and field coach Rod Dirth was asked to name the favorites in the South Suburban Conference, he picked Rosemount and Prior Lake. In reality, the team to beat probably is the team that won the conference last year – Apple Valley, which added a Section 3AA title and fourth-place finish at state to its list of accomplishments from the 2012 season. The Eagles return several of the athletes who competed for them at state last year and should be particularly strong in sprints. Seniors Quinn Hooks and Steven Wilson ran on Apple Valley relay teams that finished third at state in the 4x100- and 4x200-meter races. Seniors Dom McDew-Stauffer and Jordan Charles are returnees from the 4x200 relay, and junior DaShawn Lewis ran on the 4x100. Charles also ran on Apple Valley’s sixth-place team in the 4x400. Hooks and Lewis finished in the top five in the 100 dash at the 2012

South Suburban Conference championships, where Apple Valley edged Rosemount by two points for the team title. McDewStauffer was a top-five finisher in the 200. Charles, who has signed with the University of Minnesota to compete in track and field, also is one of the state’s top returning triple jumpers. He was second in that event at the 2012 state meet with a jump of 46 feet, 1 inch. Charles, Hooks, McDew-Stauffer and Wilson all earned All-South Suburban Conference and All-State recognition. The Eagles also should have a solid distance and middledistance group with senior Nick Hughes and junior Tyler Roberts, both of whom ran in the 4x800 relay at state last year. Dirth said the Eagles are looking for some help in the pole vault and hurdles. There’s a large pool of candidates, as Apple Valley has about 90 athletes out for track and field. M c D e w - S t a u f f e r ’s health is a concern for the Eagles.

(Photo by See EAGLES, 11A Rick Orndorf)


As Apple Valley constructs its team for the 2013 girls track and field season, three sprinters from a state runner-up relay are good building blocks. Seniors Jaryn Pipkins and Megan Maki, along with sophomore Brita Dawson, were on a 4x100meter relay that finished second in the state Class AA meet last June. They’re part of a deep group of sprinters that also includes senior Melissa Swanson and ninth-graders Amanda Sonneburg and Tia San Agustin. Pipkins, an All-Conference and All-State athlete last year and Apple Valley’s Athena Award winner this year, also is likely to be one of the Eagles’ top returnees in the triple jump. Hannah Linder, a senior, has finished seventh and third at state in the pole vault the last two years. Junior Lexi Smrekar is the Eagles’ top returnee in the shot put and discus, although coach Geri Dirth said the team could use some more depth in those events. Seniors Meredith Jones and Amber Leonard, along with sophomore Cami Sjoquist, lead the distance group. Sjoquist

Lightning expects to improve over last year’s finishes State qualifiers Bestul, Funk, among returnees by Mike Shaughnessy SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Eastview hasn’t been able to do much outdoors, but its work indoors drew some attention earlier this month. The Lightning girls track and field team won the All-American Invitational on April 6 at the University of WisconsinRiver Falls. They surprised a number of people at that meet, including their coaches. “We stood in second or third place for most of the meet,” coach Jorjean Fischer said. “There were some very competitive teams there, and the fact we won showed how balanced we are.” In 2012 the Lightning finished seventh in the South Suburban Conference championships and tied for 35th at the state meet. Eastview is expecting better showings in both this year. Both of the athletes See EASTVIEW, 11A

competed in the state cross country meet last fall. Pipkins, Maki, Linder, Leonard, Jones, Tierney Slater and Joy Norton are Apple Valley’s captains. Apple Valley finished fifth in the South Suburban Conference, fourth in Section 3AA and tied for 10th at state last year, but the Eagles are only about two years removed from their third-place finish at the state Class AA meet in 2011. AVHS graduate and former U.S. Olympian Shani Marks Johnson left the Eagles coaching staff to become a volunteer assistant coach at the University of Minnesota. But the team replaced her with another nationally prominent athlete – Heather (Dorniden) Kampf, who starred at Rosemount High School and the University of Minnesota and competed in the U.S. Olympic Trials last year. Kampf still competes professionally and on Sunday finished third in the women’s professional mile at the Boston Marathon. The Eagles, like most Minnesota teams, have yet to compete outdoors this season. They were scheduled to be at home against Eagan on Thursday. Their next scheduled meet is the Wildcat Invitational at Eagan High School on Tuesday.

Colleges sign more local student- athletes Student-athletes from local high schools signed with college programs Wednesday, the first day of the spring signing period. Apple Valley senior Harry Sonie, a starting guard on the Eagles’ state championship boys basketball team, signed with Waldorf College. Dylan Caspar will play lacrosse at Queens University on Charlotte N.C. Shanotta Bawek signed with Morgan State to play volleyball. Two softball players were among the Burnsville athletes signing Wednesday. Erica Belter will play at Dakota State University and Ellie Grubb will play at Dakota County Technical College. Luke Hansen signed with Iowa Central College for baseball and Charlie Kollasch will swim at St. Cloud State. Eagan senior Zach Glienke signed a Division I hockey National Letter of Intent at the University of Maine. Tony Sarne will play football at the University of Mary in North Dakota, Drew Nichols will play tennis at St. Cloud State and Sonja Hedblom will compete in Nordic skiing at Michigan Tech. Eastview senior Tyra Johnson, who helped the Lightning place third in the state Class 4A girls basketball tournament, will continue her college career at Minnesota State, Mankato. Erica Bestul signed with Drake University for track and field and Claire Grimm will play volleyball at Minnesota State-Moorhead. Two Rosemount lacrosse players signed with colleges Wednesday. Grant VanOverbeke will play men’s lacrosse at Florida Southern College and Sydney Lubeley will play women’s lacrosse at the University of Cincinnati. Also signing from Rosemount were Trevor Capra (South Dakota State, cross country) and Anthony Winters (Dakota County Technical College, baseball).

Distance runners should help EV boys track Like most teams, Lightning held back by bad weather by Mike Shaughnessy SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

In Tom Sharp’s previous role in the Eastview boys track and field program, a little snow and cold in the spring wouldn’t have bothered him. He coached the Lightning’s distance runners, and distance runners are used to dodging snowbanks and training in the elements. But it’s difficult for other track and field athletes to function unless it’s warm outside, and that’s a concern for Sharp, who’s in his first season as Eastview’s head

coach. “I think we’ve had three outdoor meets cancelled already,” Sharp said last weekend. “We do what we can do. The distance runners, they’re OK. They’re used to being outside, although not being on the track isn’t ideal for doing interval work. “But our pole vaulters can’t do a full run-up indoors. Our throwers can throw the shot put inside, but they have to be outside to throw the discus.” Of course, the weather is every Minnesota high school track coach’s problem, but now that Sharp oversees the whole

Eastview roster, he’d like to see his athletes compete. The Lightning finished fourth overall and was the top Minnesota team at the All-American Invitational on April 6 in River Falls, Wis. Eastview was scheduled to compete in a meet at Rosemount High School on Tuesday. When the outdoor season finally starts, Sharp said he likes the Lightning’s chances of being competitive in the South Suburban Conference. Eastview finished third in the SSC last season. Two Eastview athletes went on to score points at the state meet, but both graduated last June.

Distance running should be a strength for the Lightning, which has several of the runners that competed for Eastview in the Class AA cross country meet last fall. That group includes seniors Nick Oelke and Zach Tollefson. Oelke holds the school’s 5,000-meter record. His best event in track is probably the 1,600 (meters), Sharp said, but the 800 and 3,200 also are strong events. As for Tollefson, “I wish I had about 900 of him,” the coach said. “By the end of the season, our distance group should be running pretty

strong,” Sharp added. The Lightning also is looking for a bounceback season from senior Ryan Lockard, who was fourth at state in the high jump two years ago but didn’t qualify last year. “He’s already cleared 6-4, 6-6 in our early meets,” Sharp said. Lockard also is one of three Eastview athletes who already have exceeded 40 feet in the triple jump. Jonathan Lenz is a strong 800 runner, Miles Witcher can do sprints and hurdles, and Jahkye McClarron looks to be the top returning sprinter. Thomas Cole is a re-

turning hurdler and Scott Smith finished fifth in the shot put at last year’s South Suburban meet. Finding more sprinters will be paramount. With three open sprints and three relays designed for sprinters on a track meet’s itinerary, “it’s still a sprinter’s game,” Sharp said. “You can go against anybody if you have sprinters.” Eastview will try again to get outside at the Pony Relays at Stillwater High School on Saturday.

Irish boys see no reason to take a backward step Lacrosse team returns proven scorers by Mike Shaughnessy SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

The story of last season was a positive one for Rosemount boys lacrosse. Now the Irish would like to rewrite the final chapter. Getting to the state tournament is the goal for the Irish, whose 12-4 record last year was the programâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best ever. The season did end with a thud, however, as Rosemount lost 15-4 to Eagan in the Section 3 semifinals. With the playoffs expanding from four to eight sections, it would seem to make the route to state easier for a team such as the Irish. In reality, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not much change as the redistricting left most of the strong teams from the previous Section 3 together. Rosemount still will have to go through teams such as defending state champion Eastview, Eagan, Apple Valley and Burnsville. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They took the top seven teams (from the previous section) and put them in one section,â&#x20AC;? Rosemount coach Lance Kuehn said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The next seven teams went to a different section. I think a lot of coaches would say our new section is the toughest in the state. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d rather try to win our section than get to state from a section with a lot of teams that are still developing. If you win our section, you have a great chance of winning the state championship.â&#x20AC;? EASTVIEW, from 10A who scored points at state for Eastview last season are back. Senior Erica Bestul is coming off a fifth-place finish in the 800 and Allie Funk, also a senior, was sixth in the pole vault. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have some experience, our depth is pretty good and we think there are some younger athletes who will be able to help us,â&#x20AC;? Fischer said. Melita Ware, a senior, made the South Suburban Conference finals in the 300-meter hurdles and triple jump last year. She set a meet record in the triple jump at River Falls, going 37 feet, 6.5 inches. Seniors Lindsay Koplitz and Intouon Inthasone also will be contributors, as will junior sprinter Cecelia Rivera. Junior Kellie McGahn, who missed the 2012 track season because of an injury sustained while playing soccer, is back and should

EAGLES, from 10A

The Irish have to restock on defense, but putting the ball in the net shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be a problem. Junior attack Carter Yepsen (41 goals, 67 points last season), senior attack Grant VanOberbeke (53 points) and junior attack Conner Yepsen (46 points) were Rosemountâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second, third and fourth leading scorers last season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t use the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Râ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (rebuilding) word,â&#x20AC;? Kuehn said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We think weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re as good as we were last year. We think we can accomplish as much, if not more.â&#x20AC;? Kuehn said he expects good seasons from senior midfielders Mitch Anderson and Andrew Haisting and junior midfielder Trent Woodcock. Bobby Price, a junior captain, heads up the revamped defense. Senior goalie Chase Olson is in his third year on varsity, but junior Shaun Skrbec is making a strong bid for playing time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be the starter,â&#x20AC;? Kuehn said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re comfortable with either one.â&#x20AC;? The defense will include several players who are new to varsity competition. Last season the Irish had an aggressive defense that wanted to get the ball and ignite the high-powered offense, Kuehn said, whereas this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s defenders likely will concentrate on limiting opponentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; scoring opportunities. One thing Kuehn said he also liked about this team is he has players capable of

playing several positions. That could be especially helpful on offense, where the Irish can vary their attack with their skilled players. Rosemount was scheduled to open its season Thursday night at Minnetonka. That game originally was scheduled to be at Rosemount before being moved across town to Minnetonkaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s artificial turf field. The Irish are scheduled to play host to Eastview at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, but like everything else this spring, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s weather-dependent.

be a factor in the sprints. Sophomore Hana Metoxen is expected to help in middle-distance races. Ninth-graders who could contribute include Natalie Manders, whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s already throwing the shot put 35 feet, and Kelly Smith, who cleared 5-0 in the high jump at River Falls. Lakeville South won the 2012 South Suburban Conference championship by more than 70 points, then went on to win the state Class AA championship. Several of the Cougarsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; top athletes are back this season and competing with them will take some doing, but â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think we have the potential to finish in the top half â&#x20AC;? of the conference, Fischer said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have high hopes that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be competitive.â&#x20AC;? Eastview is scheduled to compete at the Wautoma Relays on Friday in Watertown, S.D., and the Wildcat Invitational

Girls lacrosse Rosemount enters its second season as a standalone girls lacrosse program. The Irish, who previously had been part of a cooperative with Eagan, were 9-6 in 2012, their first year on their own. Senior midfielder Maddie Johnson, a team captain, will be a big part of the Irishâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plans. She had 73 goals last season â&#x20AC;&#x201C; almost five per game â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and had one nine-goal game. Sydney Lubeley, a senior midfielder, also is a captain. Senior Alexis Raeth and junior Charley Belden return in goal after splitting time almost equally last season. Senior Meghan Tuccitto (13 goals) and sophomore Madi Lubeley (six goals) are returning forwards for the Irish.

A&J Painting is a family owned and operated business. A&J Painting is a family owned and operated business that was started 15 years ago with my sons Andrew, Jeremiah, and David. In todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economic climate we have maintained a healthy business due to our professional approach and work ethic that carries the highest standards of quality for every job.

KUEHN, from 1A and panic set in. Everybody was on their phone, but we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know they shut down telephone service. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d get messages, but I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t call people back.â&#x20AC;? His mother couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help but wonder about the man she was standing next to while watching the race. His son was still on the course when the Kuehn family left. The crowd was about six deep at that point. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hear anything but sirens,â&#x20AC;? Kuehn said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was constant sirens. All night. It was hard to sleep.â&#x20AC;? Kuehnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s family woke up early the morning of the race to get a viewing spot near the finish line. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let into the area at first because they were doing a dog sweep,â&#x20AC;? Kuehn said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t check their bags or anything, but there was a very

thorough check before.â&#x20AC;? His brother walked into Marathon Sports a few times to browse while waiting for him to finish. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He probably walked past that trash can (near one of the explosions) six or seven times,â&#x20AC;? Kuehn said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t imagine.â&#x20AC;? The day following the race, Kuehn was home, but still quite shaken. On one hand he was overwhelmed by the amount of people who showed concern. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A flood of calls came to me,â&#x20AC;? said Kuehn, who also coaches the Rosemount varsity boys lacrosse team. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The assistant principal sent out an email that I was fine. It was a rush of emotion that so many people cared about me. Sometimes in your life you think no one cares about you or no one cares about each other, but people are helping you, calling you to see if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re

OK. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very humbling. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very emotional.â&#x20AC;? On the other hand, he couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t shake the feeling that someone was trying to hurt him, his family and his peers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What does anyone have against marathoners?â&#x20AC;? Kuehn said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We never harm anyone. Going out running doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hurt anyone. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not against anyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s religion. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not against anyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s social policy. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just people trying to better themselves.â&#x20AC;? He couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help but notice the timing of the bombs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They set it off when the greatest amount of people were going to finish,â&#x20AC;? Kuehn said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They were targeting the biggest group. I just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t understand.â&#x20AC;? Kuehn is inspired by the thought of running the Boston Marathon again. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Talking with other runners, we want to go back

Kuehn said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You run the same race with the 35 most elite runners in the world taking the same footsteps. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take away the memories of what I accomplished. When things do happen like this, we can still get together. We cheer each other on and help each other out. That the mentality of a runner.â&#x20AC;?

Boarding ‘The Orphan Train’ theater and arts calendar FHS students transported back in time in spring play by Theresa Malloy SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Farmington High School students are putting the finishing touches on their spring production – finding stage shoes that fit, altering costumes, studying scripts, testing lighting and memorizing lines – hoping everything will be ready for opening night Thursday. “The Orphan Train” by Aurand Harris is a historical played based on the lives of orphans sent on trains from New York City to the Midwest at the turn of the 20th century hoping to be adopted by a family along the line. Directed by English teacher Beth Breiland, the play follows the lives of nine orphans on the train. “It was a really sad time,” said junior Lizzie Cummings who plays a lady.

Senior Mitch Delaney, who plays the orphan Danny, agreed and said there is a lot to learn from the story that still matters more than 100 years later. “A lot of things don’t change, especially for kids here in American today. They’re still homeless kids,” he said. “I’m hoping audiences learn something from the play,” Breiland said. The set is technically simple with a line of chairs representing the train and a minimalist background, but Breiland said the acting is not easy. The characters experience “waves of emotion” and must convey effectively to the audience. The other challenge for Breiland is half the cast has not been on stage before. She said she is pleased how everyone has worked hard in the past six weeks to prepare for the production. “It was nice to give everybody good parts and good personalities that they brought out,” Breiland said.

She said she told the students to treat the fictional characters like they are real people, adding a level of authenticity and respect to the acting. “It’s a lot different with the gestures and everything that differs from back then,” Delaney said. The cast is made up of 21 students, including a 6-year-old student, and five crew members. “My hope is that (students) learn something about our country and history. They learn about the history of children in America,” Breiland said. “Hopefully people leave saying, ‘This was interesting.’” “The Orphan Train” runs three nights at 7 p.m. Thursday, April 18, until Saturday, April 20, at the Boeckman Middle School Auditorium, 800 Denmark Ave. Tickets are available at the ticket window 45 minutes before the show begins.

Thisweekend Percussion ensemble Crash is crazy creative Group set to perform April 28 in Lakeville by Andrew Miller SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Twin Cities composer Mary Ellen Childs pulled out all the stops for her percussion ensemble Crash. Among the performance pieces are â&#x20AC;&#x153;DrumRoll,â&#x20AC;? which features drummers on wheels, and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sight of Hand,â&#x20AC;? which incorporates hamboningstyle dance and baseball coaching signals. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also the wild visual spectacle of the eponymous piece, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Crash,â&#x20AC;? with six cymbal players on roller blades and other modes of transportation. Crash is set to take the stage of the Lakeville Area Arts Center on Sunday, April 28, as part of the ongoing Highview Hills Coffee Concert series.

The concert will be just the second time in the concert seriesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; six seasons to feature a percussion ensemble. Focused mainly on classical music, the series delved into the percussion arena for the first time when it hosted the Minnesota Percussion Trio in April 2009. For Crash, as with all the concerts, there will be complimentary coffee and refreshments in the seriesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; informal cabaret setting. Crash founder and composer Childs, who conceived of the group as an integration of music and dance and theater, will introduce and discuss her work at the Lakeville show. In addition to her work with Crash, Childs also composes â&#x20AC;&#x153;purely musicalâ&#x20AC;? concert works and has received commissions from the Kronos Quar-

tet, the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra and the Walker Art Center. Her CD releases include â&#x20AC;&#x153;Kilterâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dream House.â&#x20AC;? A fan of the accordion, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s created about a dozen works that include the instrument. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s coffee concert series concludes May 19 with the Bell Alma Duo of Kathy Kienzle, principal harp of the Minnesota Orchestra, and Michele Frisch, principal flute of the Minnesota Opera. All the concerts are on Sundays at 2 p.m. at the arts center at 20965 Holyoke Ave. in downtown Lakeville. Tickets are $14.50 for adults, $12 for students and seniors, and are available online at One performance piece by Crash sees cymbal players on roller blades and other modes Email Andrew Miller at of transportation; another features hamboning-style dance and baseball coaching nals.
