Apple Valley’s Mid-Winter Fest features new events, perennial favorites Feb. 4-5 at sites throughout city

by Andrew Miller Thisweek Newspapers

A weekend of winter fun is in store at Apple Valley’s Mid-Winter Fest Feb. 4-5. Now in its 35th year, the annual celebration hosted by the city’s Parks

and Recreation Department features family-oriented activities throughout the weekend at the Apple Valley Community Center, Valleywood Golf Course, the teen center and other sites throughout the city.

The medallion hunt, a perennial festival favorite, returns this year for teams of sleuths to search out a medallion hidden in one of the city’s 50 parks. Clues will be posted at the Apple Valley ComSee Winter, 6A

Three years ago Jeff Payette of Apple Valley was dealt a devastating blow. He was diagnosed with inoperable esophageal cancer at age 47, yet he never let the disease bring his spirit down. “It was devastating,” he said. “But I have too much to live for. I don’t have time to get depressed.” Through years of chemotherapy, radiation treatments and financial burdens brought on by the cancer, Payette, now 50, kept a positive attitude and continued to put family first. At one point, he went straight to his son’s wrestling match after enduring exhausting therapies at the hospital. It was this spirit that helped inspire Payette’s friends and colleagues to organize a fundraising benefit. The event will be held Saturday, Feb. 18, from 3 to 8 p.m. and will include a lasagna dinner, bake sale, silent auction and Zumbathon at Scott Highlands

Jeff Payette Middle School, 14011 Pilot Knob Road, Apple Valley. Free-will donations will be collected for the dinner, while the Zumbathon will cost $10 per person. Donations will be given to the Payette family to help ease their financial burden. “Jeff and his family are just so deserving of this,” said Kathy Plumley, one of the event’s organizers. “He’s a good man and a good friend to my daughter, Kim.” Plumley said she doesn’t have a specific dollar amount in mind but hopes See Payette, 6A

Lakeville woman, sister recount Italian cruise emergency Rescue crews, townsfolk came to their aid

Ronda Rosenthal of Lakeville (left) and her sister Vivian Shafer (right) captured this photo of themselves on Jan. 14 after escaping their capsized cruise ship in Italy the night before. They stayed on the island of Giglio, where local townsfolk stayed up all night to help them and thousands of other passengers and crew.

The air on the Mediterranean Sea was cold, as was the water, on that Friday the 13th. Ronda Rosenthal and Vivian Shafer, joined by at least a couple thousand fellow cruise ship passengers, stood on the diminutive Italian island of Giglio, about 18 miles off the Tuscan coast. They had no money, passports or warm clothes. It was all on a capsized cruise ship not far from the shore. It may have been Italy, known for its warmer climes, but the coastal area near Tuscany is far enough north to make for a miser-

Officials examine year-round model in District 196 by Jessica Harper Thisweek Newspapers

School districts across the nation have for years bounced around the idea of adopting a year-round school model. Now officials in the Rosemount-Apple Valley-Eagan School District are once again examining the concept. Superintendent Jane Berenz proposed at a Jan. 23 School Board retreat that officials research whether General 952-894-1111 Distribution 952-846-2070 Display Advertising 952-846-2011 Classified Advertising 952-846-2000

a year-round option would be worth adopting at one of the district’s elementary schools. “I believe this will create more choices for parents. It’s all about options these days,” Berenz said. The option would be in the form of a program for interested students and not mandated for all students at that particular school. Board Member Jackie Magnuson described the concept as “a school within a school.” If such a model were to be adopted, students enrolled in the program would attend school all year with the exception of periodic breaks for conferences, holidays and the like, and would not have a three-month break in the summer. No specific plan has been recommended. District officials plan

to study whether such a program would generate enough interest and be cost effective enough to move forward. Officials also plan to seek approval from parents and the teachers union before a year-round program is implemented. Year-round school models are common across the globe and students in many of these nations have historically outperformed their U.S. counterparts. Several U.S. school districts over the years have examined the concept as they push to keep up with other developed nations. A districtwide yearround model was explored during the 1990s, but was abandoned after it failed to obtain enough parental approval. Jessica Harper is at jessica. harper@ecm-inc.com.

able experience in January without proper attire and shelter. “It felt like the Apostle Islands (in Lake Superior) in the winter,” Rosenthal said. Rosenthal, of Lakeville, was joining Shafer, her sister on a recreational U.S. military leave from serving in Afghanistan, for an Italian vacation. They had spent some time sightseeing on land before boarding the Costa Concordia cruise ship on Friday, Jan. 13, in Rome. The $570 million ship hit rocks in shallow water that evening while the two were attending a magic show. The ship was slowly capsizing on its side by the time the two

women joined some others on a lifeboat. Fifteen people would die in the crash and 18 would be missing, at the time this story went to press. Rosenthal and Shafer paint a picture of a community coming together to help the displaced passengers, but also indicate the mass confusion and lack of preparation on the part of Costa Cruises, the Carnival subsidiary that operated the ship. The captain would later face prosecution for his negligence and abandoning ship before all passengers were safely off the boat. The two women told their story to Thisweek on See Rescue, 6A

Burnsville Man accused of Church may add life to vacant strip molesting 7-year-old girl by John Gessner THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

A 27-year-old Burnsville man is accused of first- and second-degree criminal sexual conduct involving a 7-year-old girl. Stephen Richard Angotti was charged Jan. 20 in Dakota County District Court.

Eagan Struggling Eagan buffet company files for bankruptcy Buffets Inc. says it has already reached agreements with its creditors by Jessica Harper THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

Distressed Eagan restaurant company Buffets Inc. filed for Chapter 11 reorganization for the second time Jan. 16, but has said the company has already reached agreements with its creditors. It also plans to close 81 underperforming restaurants, which is about 16 percent of its nationwide chain, as part of efforts to turn around its financial situation.

In the reorganization filing with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Delaware, Buffets said it has the “full support� of senior lenders who hold 83 percent of its debt for a plan that will erase all of the company’s estimated $245 million of debt and interest payments of $30 million. The company expects it will be able to close the bankruptcy within six months, and existing lenders will receive 100 percent in new common stock.

Buffets is the largest steakhouse and buffet chain nationwide with 494 restaurants in 38 states. It operates such restaurant chains as Old Country Buffet, HomeTown and Tahoe Joe’s Famous Steakhouse. The company first filed for bankruptcy in early 2008 and emerged in 2009. It was publicly traded until 2000 when it was purchased by New York private equity firm CaxtonIselman, now CI Capital

Partners, for $643 million, according to news reports. In May, Buffets Inc. announced it was exploring a strategic alternative including a possible sale, according to a Star Tribune report. That month, the company’s foreclosed 100,000-square-foot headquarters was auctioned and

bought by Eagan pharmacy benefits manager Prime Therapeutics with the aid of a $500,000 forgivable loan from the state for creating jobs. Buffets Inc. CEO Mike Andrews has said the company will try to renegotiate more favorable lease agreements.

The company has a $50 million loan from its existing lender, which in addition to available cash flow is expected to provide Buffets Inc. enough liquidity to operate during the restructuring process. Jessica Harper is at jessica. harper@ecm-inc.com.

Applications open for community grants Applications for the 2012 Eagan Foundation Community Grants Program are now being accepted. Community organizations are encouraged to submit grant proposals to

fund Eagan-based initiatives. Eligible grantees are nonprofit organizations based in Eagan and focused on serving the Eagan community. Typically, grants are $1,000 or less.

Thisweek Columnist Time to congratulate exceptional businesswomen – and to remember one from last year by Larry Werner THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

Shortly after I joined ECM Publishers as general manager of Thisweek and the Dakota County Tribune, I told my staff that I wanted us to do a better job of covering business south of the river. Having spent 12 years as business editor of the Star Tribune, I have a strong interest in business news and a soft spot in my heart for those who overcome the odds to succeed as entrepreneurs and managers of companies. That desire to shine a brighter light on Dakota County business led us to reformat the Dakota County Tribune into a Business Weekly and to launch an annual event that recognizes women who excel as business people and in their commitment to community. While we’ve come a long way from the day when women were told their place is at home, not in the workplace, our society still struggles against the notion that it’s men who should be in charge and men who deserve the big bucks. So for the third year, we’ve selected from nominations of readers and staff members a group of women we will recognize on Feb. 16 as the Dakota County Tribune’s Exceptional Businesswomen, class of 2012. If

you’d like to attend the awards breakfast, go to www.thisweeklive.com/exceptional-businesswomen-2012 and click on “register now.� Tickets are $20. Our keynote speaker will be Beth Krehbiel, the president of Fairview Ridges Hospital in Burnsville, and a 2010 Exceptional Businesswomen Award winner. Our emcee is Holly Dahl, general manager with Frontier Communications and former mayor of Lakeville. Frontier has been a sponsor of this event for the three years we’ve been doing it. We talked about not doing the event this year. As I’ve mentioned in this space many times, the past few years have been very challenging for the newspaper business. With intense competition from the internet and other news organizations, we’ve had to reduce our staff, which included not replacing Eva Mooney, our business manager who managed the event in its first two years. But after talking it over, we decided that recognizing women who excel at business is an important way for us to tell some good news and connect with the community. With the help of the Dakota County Technical College Foundation, Tad Johnson, our managing editor, has taken over from

Eva and organized the event for a third year. On Feb. 9, we will run profiles in the Tribune of the 11 women who were selected, and on Feb. 16, we’ll hand out the awards at the Best Western Premier Nicollet Inn, another of our sponsors. The other major sponsors are Lakeville Trophy, the Lakeville Chamber of Commerce and Dakota Electric Association. This year, our event will be bittersweet. On Jan. 6, we lost a terrific person who was honored with a 2011 award. Nancy Quinnell died of cancer after many years making her mark as a business person and a community volunteer. She was senior vice president of Hollstadt and Associates, a consulting company that moved recently from Burnsville to Mendota Heights. And she was a longtime member of the Lakeville Rotary. She was only 51. At the suggestion of Tad Johnson, we will give a portion of the ticket-sale proceeds to breast-cancer research in Nancy’s name. The other honorees for 2012 are: Sunny Bhakta, owner of the Comfort Inn in Lakeville; Connie Braziel, deputy director and chief operating officer of the Minnesota Zoo in Apple Valley; Jamie Dahlen, an owner of the Nicollet Inn and the Holiday

Inn & Suites in Lakeville; Michele Engdahl, manager of government and community affairs for Thomson Reuters in Eagan; Carrie Guarrero, senior vice president and regional manger for Cornerstone Mortgage in Burnsville; Chris Holtan, a founder and vice president of Lancet Software in Burnsville; Peggy Johnson, community relations director for Dakota Electric in Farmington; Sheila Longie, information destruction consultant with Shred Right and former president of Document Destruction in Lakeville; Sona Mehring, founder and CEO of CaringBridge in Eagan; Terri Shepherd, founder and CEO of Xact Resources of Burnsville, and Theresa Wise, senior vice president and chief information officer of Delta Airlines in Eagan. If you’re free for breakfast on Feb. 16, we’d love to have you join us in saluting 11 exceptional women, remembering another and raising a little money to fight an illness that has affected women in virtually all of our lives.

Letters Republicans should pass jobs proposal To the editor: Most of the voters I talk to in our community agree that jobs and the economy should be the top priority for our state Legislature in 2012. That’s why I was pleased to see Gov. Mark Dayton and DFL legislators introduce a plan to support Minnesota’s small businesses and put people back to work. The jobs plan focuses on some common-sense

ways we can jump-start our economy. Small businesses would receive a $3,000 tax credit for every new worker they would hire. In addition, unemployed Minnesotans could receive a grant to get retrained in a new high-demand career. It also invests in proven job-creating initiatives like the Minnesota Investment Fund, which helps businesses get access to loans to expand and grow. Last year, the Legislature failed to do anything to create jobs or strengthen Min-

nesota’s economy. In fact, the majority’s first proposed budget would have led to a loss of nearly 30,000 jobs, mostly in the private sector. And thanks to an unprecedented state government shutdown, thousands of Minnesotans temporarily lost their jobs, and the paychecks that their families depended on. Creating jobs and strengthening Minnesota’s middle class shouldn’t be partisan issues. When I served for four years in the majority of the House we

didn’t always agree with Gov. Tim Pawlenty, but we worked with him to help Minnesota small businesses create jobs because that’s what Minnesotans expect. I hope Rep. Pam Myhra, RBurnsville, and the Republican majority will finally live up to their campaign rhetoric to make creating jobs their first priority and quickly pass the DFL jobs proposal. WILL MORGAN Burnsville

Purpose of mayor’s cause unknown

controversies will be a stepping stone for his political ambitions? I deplore it when politicians cheapen important issues and debates by creating cultural divisiveness so that they might be headliners. The mayor should just do his job and stay out of the personal lives of the citizens of Eagan.

To the editor: So what is the point? Eagan Mayor Mike Maguire has decided to champion a cause whose purpose is unknown to its residents. This idea to create a Domestic Partner Registry is most befuddling. There was little public discussion of the proposal and even less DAN ROSSINI of a demand to have it en- Eagan acted. Is it possible that the mayor thinks that pandering to a few and stirring up

THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

The Eagan girls hockey team put the metro on notice by defeating South Suburban Conference-leading Lakeville North 2-1 on Tuesday. It was a healthy step for the Wildcats, who have battled injuries and illness most of the season. The Wildcats got stuck in a rut lately, losing to Bloomington Jefferson and a tying Prior Lake earlier this month. Head coach Scott Darwitz felt like Eagan could have won those games, but he also didn’t come into the season with the expectation Eagan would be in contention for the South Suburban Conference. “If you would have asked me if we’d be in this position at the beginning with this many young kids, I would have said no,” Darwitz said. “It’s been great.” It’s been a pleasant surprise with a front line of all underclassmen, including an eighth grader, “Last year was an underconstruction type of year,” senior forward Alanna Stangl said. “We actually didn’t think we’re going to be that good, but we had a lot of girls come up from junior varsity and do a really good job.” Against Lakeville North, the puck went the way of the Wildcats. The girls had the upper hand in the first two periods, giving the girls a 2-0 lead with a power-play goal by Megan Wolfe and another goal by Shelby Williams in the second

The Panthers cut the lead in half about a minute later and played a furious third period, outshooting Eagan 10-1. Wildcat goalie Emma May stopped 30 shots with the help of just four healthy defenders to secure the 2-1 victory. “We slipped against Prior Lake and Jefferson. Otherwise this might have been for the conference,” Darwitz said. “It’s a little disappointing, but we’re going to keep plugging away.” If the conference title doesn’t happen for the Wildcats, there are always playoffs. Eagan hasn’t gone to state since 2009. “It would be awesome to go to state my senior year,” Stangl said. “It’s what everyone wants. I think we have a good chance.” Darwitz knows more than anyone the puck can bounce many different ways. The Wild-

cats would still need to win out and get some help from Lakeville North’s opponents in the final week of play to win the conference. “We’re still in the hunt,” Darwitz said. “We’re getting ready for the playoffs. We want more people to score goals. We need someone else to get strong with the sticks. No doubt about it. People are going to start keying on Wolfe. We had some good chances with our second and third unit. It will come.” Wolfe leads the team with 53 points, 29 more than anyone else. “She’s carrying us right now,” Darwitz said. “She’s a phenomenal player. We’ve got to get her to play a little better both ways and to relax a little. But she’s just a junior.” Andy Rogers is at andy.rogers@ecm-inc.com.

Rosemount came away with third place in the Class AA boys True Team swimming and diving finals last weekend. Led by a meet-record performance in the 200-yard medley relay, the Irish improved one spot over their 2011 state finals finish. Lake Conference teams Eden Prairie (2,157 points) and Minnetonka (1,969.5) finished first and second in the Class AA finals Jan. 21 at the University of Minnesota Aquatic Center. Rosemount scored 1,888.5, while the two other conference schools in the finals, Lakeville North (1,334.5) and Lakeville South (1,183.5), finished seventh and ninth. Rosemount seniors Braden McCormack, Jacob Stern, Luke Dowell and Conor Manning swam on the first-place 200 medley relay, which finished in a meet-record 1 minute, 37.54 seconds. Stern also won an individual event in the True Team finals, taking first in the 100 breaststroke in 59.37. Other top-10 individual finishers for Rosemount were junior Andrew Urness in the 200 freestyle (eighth, 1:47.77) and 500 freestyle (eighth, 4:59.52), Stern in the 200 individual medley (fifth, 2:03.82), junior Sheldon Hatlen in the 200 IM (tied for sixth, 2:04.36) and 100 freestyle (fourth, 48.74), Manning in the 50 freestyle (seventh, 22.72), sophomore Daniel Monaghan in diving (third, 352.20 points), sophomore Gareth Estabrook in diving (ninth, 294.90), senior Jim Peterson in diving (10th, 291.80), Dowell in the 100 butterfly (fifth, 54.53), McCormack in the 100 freestyle (10th, 50.18) and 100 backstroke (third, 53.39) and senior Matthew McCormack in the 100 backstroke (sixth, 55.59). Rosemount was second to Stillwater in the 200 freestyle relay, with Hatlen, Stern, senior Tyler Lawson and Manning finishing in 1:29.15. Hatlen, Urness, Braden McCormack and Dowell finished fourth in the 400 freestyle relay in 3:18.35. Mike Shaughnessy is Dakota County sports editor for Sun Newspapers.

Eastview staying humble while in midst of undefeated 2012 by Andy Rogers THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

You probably won’t catch the Eastview girls basketball team celebrating the news, but the Lighting are undefeated in 2012. While Eastview has been a contender in the south metro for years, it wasn’t evident it had a top-10 team prior to the season, as many of the girls hadn’t played together. “They’ve come together as a team and know what their roles are,” head coach Melissa Guebert said. “We have four senior starters who are good leaders. They’ve been around basketball for a while, so there’s a maturity about them.” No one is passing out trophies just yet. If there’s one prevailing theme for the Lightning it’s that they never get too high or too low. Prior to a seven-game winning streak, the girls were blown out by Hopkins in December, the only game Guebert said the Lightning weren’t competitive. “It’s hard to come back the same week and play (No. 4) Bloomington Kennedy, but that was the turning point for us,” Guebert said. Eastview played Kennedy tight losing by three points after having an opportunity to tie it at the end. “You don’t know how kids are going to handle the situation,” Guebert said. “They were competitive and I think Kennedy was a bit surprised. Even though we lost, we knew we were going to be OK.” They also play as a team, and Guebert is hesitant to single anyone out. “Every girl has been a big part of their success,” Guebert said. “Things don’t always show up in the box score. The girls give their all at practice and cheer on the bench.” Perhaps the team’s most impressive win came Jan. 10. For the first time since 2009, the Lightning defeated longtime rival Lakeville North. The victory was the first since Eastview defeated Lakeville North in the section final almost three

years ago. Lakeville North ended Eastview’s season in 2010 and 2011. Still, the girls’ feet stayed on the ground. “At the time I think some of the girls didn’t realize the significance of the game until after,” Guebert said. “They were still pretty low key. Even though it meant a lot to them you wouldn’t have known it. I think that’s been a big reason for our success. If you look at our season, we could have gotten pretty low, but we didn’t.” Another catalyst for the team’s success is the emergence of freshman Madison Guebert who leads the team in scoring, but she’s quick to give credit to her teammates. Coming in as a freshman and as the coach’s daughter generally comes with a share of challenges. But it’s been a good fit. “I’m happy for her,” Melissa Guebert said. “I would have never have coached the team if she couldn’t be coached by me. But she is a kid that does not enjoy a lot of attention.” She likes to keep a low profile and let the team’s play do the talking. Amber Mehr, Paige Palkovich, Meghan Ryan, Emily Young, Hannah Shie and Tyra Johnson among others have helped the girls achieve a 13-4 record, which has led to an appearance in the top 10 in the Class AAAA poll for the first time last week. With just one loss in the South Suburban Conference, the girls still have a chance to win the title. The only team standing in their way is Bloomington Kennedy. They will meet in a rematch at Eastview on Friday that could go a long way in determining who wins the conference title a month from now.

Rosemount So far, 2012 hasn’t been kind to the Rosemount girls basketball team. The girls entered the new year with a 6-4 record with a Grand Rapids Invitational win to celebrate.

In January the girls lost six straight, leading to a showdown with Burnsville on Tuesday night where they broke the streak with a 63-57 victory. The six-game losing streak included a threepoint loss last weekend to Eagan and a 41-point defeat against Eastview three days prior. With more than a month left of play, the Irish aren’t conceding anything. “We are staying upbeat,” coach Sam McDonald said. “The effort is there. We need to keep working to improve. That specifically being on taking care of the basketball and concentrating on finishing shots.” Hannah Grim has been relentless, leading her team with 29 points against Burnsville. She is the leading scorer in the South Suburban Conference with 20.1 points per game. “Hannah has shown great progress from last year to this year,” McDonald said. “She has taken on the role of point guard this year as well.” She’s drawing opponents’ attention defensively in every game, but she’s managed to win the battle more times than not. “She is doing a good job of staying aggressive,” McDonald said. “She makes a lot of plays defensively that lead to baskets as well.” Kaylie Hanson, Hannah Halterman, Sydney Newton and Meghan Schuster have improved their play as well.

Apple Valley The Eagles pushed their record above .500 last weekend for the first time in 2012 with a four-point victory over Burnsville. “Like any team, there are a couple games we wish we could have back, but we just need to keep moving forward,” coach Jeremy Gordon said. “There isn’t a team we don’t feel we can play with.” Getting back to .500 was a relief, especially in a conference featuring top10 programs Eastview, Bloomington Kennedy and

Lakeville North. “In our conference you cannot take a night off,” Gordon said. “Every team will battle hard, and to get our record back up shows how hard we are competing.” They showed their progress Tuesday defeating Lakeville North 59-55. It was the first Apple Valley victory against Lakeville North since Feb. 27, 2009. Led by Jaryn Pipkins’ 18 points, her floor awareness, rebounding ability and defensive aggressiveness have kept the team competitive along with Destiny Scott’s killer shot. But they are not doing it alone. “We are playing 10 girls, all of who are contributing,” Gordon said. “If one girl has an off-night, someone else has come off the bench and stepped up.” The Eagles hope to put more tallies in the win column with a threegame home stretch against Bloomington Jefferson on Friday, Rosemount on Tuesday and Prior Lake on Feb. 3. The girls lost to Jefferson and Rosemount earlier this season. “Our record is much better at home (6-3), so that three-game home stretch will be very nice,” Gordon said. “The biggest thing for us in preparation for the playoffs is to stay healthy. We have had five girls on our roster with concussions this year and miss multiple games. One player tore her ACL (in her knee) for the second straight year and is out for the season. “Girls have stepped up and allowed us to stay competitive through the injuries, but to have a full healthy roster is what every coach wants during playoffs.”

Burnsville

points. Narrow losses seem to follow the Blaze this season. The girls lost to Lakeville South by two points, Rosemount by six, Lakeville North by seven, Prior Lake by eight and Eastview by 12. Led by Georgi Donchetz, Jessica Ranke, Lateeka Thompson and Jessica Buck, the Blaze would like to reverse that trend starting Friday when Prior Lake comes to town and Tuesday with a trip to Lakeville South.

Eagan Since starting the season 3-11, the Wildcats are starting to increase their win total. In a span of less than 24 hours, the girls won two close away games against Rosemount and Owatonna. The wins were propelled by Lindsey Gonsior (21 points against Owatonna), Jess Hart, who is leading the team in scoring, and the guard play of Sammie Delzotto. “We are playing as more of a unit,” coach Elizabeth Carpentier said. “We are starting to understand each others’ tendencies and such. We had some great moments this weekend. We’re still a work in progress.” The season hasn’t gone the way many expected. “I misjudged the learning scale of our younger kids,” Carpentier said. “We are playing better recently but because of our rough start we’re kind of behind the eight-ball when it comes to getting where we need to be.” The highlight for Carpentier was Hart’s recordbreaking play this season. Hart broke the school scoring record against Rosemount. “When she’s in games she is leading by example and when she’s on the bench she is a very vocal leader,” Carpentier said. “She is definitely maturing and has stepped up her leadership.”

The South Suburban Conference has proved to be a challenge for the Blaze this season. The girls are 5-3 in nonconference games, but 1-8 in the conference including a 63-57 loss to Rosemount on Tuesday.

Elizabeth L. Sanchez, 33, charged with two felonies by Andrew Miller Thisweek Newspapers

An Apple Valley woman is facing criminal charges after a Federal Express package containing more than 17 grams of cocaine was discovered by police last week at the Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport. Elizabeth Laine Sanchez,

������ ����������� ���������� ���� ��������� ��������� � ���� �������� �� ���������� � ������� ���������� ������ ������� � ������ ���� ������ � ����� ��� ��������

33, was charged Jan. 20 with two felony counts of controlled substance possession after a Dakota County Drug Task Force sting in which the package was delivered and her apartment was searched. The criminal complaint gives the following account: Airport police obtained a search warrant to open the package after it was deemed suspicious. They found 17.6 grams of what they believed to be cocaine, and after a chemical test confirmed it was indeed the drug, it was repackaged in the box in which it had arrived. At about 3:30 p.m. Jan. 18, Drug Task Force agents did a “controlled delivery.” Undercover officers observed Sanchez accepting

the package from a delivery truck outside her apartment building on the 15500 block of Galaxie Avenue. The officers then followed her back to her apartment and executed a search warrant. In searching the apartment police say they found a drug pipe, a digital scale, syringes, pills in an unmarked prescription bottle and trace amounts of cocaine on a spoon. They also found the box in which the 17.6 grams of cocaine had been shipped, but not the cocaine itself. Police believe the cocaine was flushed down the toilet as they began executing the search warrant, the complaint said. Officers spoke with a woman who was in the

apartment with Sanchez when the search began. She told them she saw Sanchez remove an item from the package and then run to the bathroom. Sanchez was arrested and booked into the Dakota County Jail. If convicted of the two felony charges, Sanchez faces a maximum penalty of 30 years in prison and $510,000 in fines. She’s also charged with possession of drug paraphernalia, a petty misdemeanor punishable by a $300 fine. Her next court appearance is Feb. 6.

Payette/from 1A to raise as much money as possible. “We just want to make sure they are financially secure,” she said. The past five years have been a roller coaster ride for the Payette family. Payette was handed his first blow in 2007 when he was laid off by a local flower shop. He was fortunate to quickly find a custodial job in the Rosemount-Apple Valley-Eagan School District where his three sons attend school. It is also the district where Payette grew up and graduated high school. Within a few years, he got the grim news that he had an inoperable cancerous tumor. Doctors theorize that it may have been caused, in part, by years of erosion created by acid reflux, Payette said. Since doctors cannot operate on the tumor in his esophagus, Payette will likely endure chemotherapy until it is eradicated. This, doctors say, will likely take the rest of his life. The hardest part, Payette said, was sharing the news with his three sons, Joshua, Alex and Miguel, who are now 16, 13, and 11, respectively. It was really hard to

tell my sons,” Payette said. “They wanted to know why, and I couldn’t really answer that.” Within a year, the family encountered more bad news when his wife, Maria, was laid off. Like her husband, she too was able to quickly find a job within in the same school district. Since diagnosis, Payette has incurred exorbitant medical bills and missed weeks of work as a custodian at Scott Highlands. Though he has been dealt a heavy hand, the Payettes say they are grateful for all the generosity shown to them in the past few years. Friends, family and teachers have organized numerous fundraisers, while school officials have gone out of their way to ensure Payette has a safe work environment during his weakest moments. “Through this whole time, everyone’s been so helpful,” he said. “I don’t think I have enough thank you’s to give.” For more information on the benefit for Jeff Payette, call either Kim Johnson at (612) 578-3350 or Kathy Plumley at (651) 373-4321.

Steven Cross guilty of child neglect Lakeville man abandoned his son and left him with neighbors last summer by Aaron Vehling Thisweek Newspapers

Steven Alexander Cross, 60, the Lakeville man who abandoned his son and told him to live with neighbors last summer, was found guilty Wednesday of child neglect in Dakota County court. After deliberating for about an hour, the jury found Cross guilty of one count of child neglect, a gross misdemeanor. On July 18, 2011, Cross had left a note with his 11-year-old son indicating the boy should leave their Lakeville home to go live with neighbors John and Joanne Pahl, whom Cross had not spoken to previously about such an arrangement. Cross had been unemployed and faced foreclosure on his home and said he saw this as the only way his son

could have a normal life. Cross went to California with $3,000 in his pocket. He found a job in a deli in Carmel and, as he noted in an email to an ex-girlfriend, had been living homeless. He was arrested in Cambria on Aug. 29 and extradited back to Dakota County. Judge Robert King ordered a pre-sentence investigation and set the sentencing for March 20, at 10 a.m. in Hastings, according to a release from Dakota County Attorney James Backstrom. Backstrom noted in the release that there is an ongoing child protection proceeding in Dakota County concerning the welfare of Cross’s son. “Steven Cross’s actions in abandoning his child showed a callous disregard for his son’s well-being,” Backstrom said. “We are pleased the

Steven Cross jury has held him accountable for his actions.” Assistant County Attorney Nicole Nee was the primary prosecutor on the case. Cross has been fighting in court to regain custody of his son, completing courtordered requirements in the custody case. However, his son has opted not to have contact with his father.

altar. Rosenthal and Shafer, raised Catholic, were not comfortable with sleeping there. “There was some space against the wall,” she said. “We sat on our life vests from 2 to 5 a.m.” The whole scene was “mayhem,” Shafer said. In terms of figuring out how to navigate emergency measures and secure a plane home, she said she and her sister were largely on their own. Eventually, passengers were ferried to Rome, where they stayed at an airport Hilton on Costa’s dime. The two women sought to make the most of their situation, delaying their flight a few days so they could fit in some sort of excursion. In the meantime they were interviewed by scores of local and national media, including CNN. Rosenthal and Shafer were able to contact Ronda’s husband, Jeff, to acquire

some money. Costa paid for their 45-minute taxi ride from the hotel to downtown Rome to the United States Embassy. The two needed temporary passports to get home. Back in the United States, the two women spent much of their time regrouping and talking to reporters. They were not sure if their possessions could be salvaged – the ship has sat idle on its side since it hit the rocks. Reflecting on the experience, Shafer and Rosenthal said they were not angry. If anything, they are appalled by the rampant “misinformation” and disorganization during the height of the emergency. “The biggest heroes,” Shafer said, “are those small business owners who stayed open all night to help us.”

Hospitality As the midnight cold set in on Giglio, the 1,500-person island’s residents braced for the influx of thousands of stranded passengers and crew. The local police and the Italian military joined in to help them distribute blankets, hot tea and some biscuits, Shafer said. Local merchants gathered as many blankets and clothes as they could, too. They also opened up their shops so people could avoid the cold. “A man who ran a toy store was passing out all his clothing,” Rosenthal said. The local Catholic church also opened its doors to accommodate as many as possible. It was crammed tight, the only open space near the

vendors to be on the watch for counterfeit currency after fake $100 bills were used at Apple Valley businesses last weekend. The fake bills were made from genuine $5 bills that had been washed and reprinted, according to police. “This particular method of counterfeiting is particularly effective because it uses genuine currency paper which feels normal and passes any counterfeit detecting pen tests,” Apple Valley retail crime officer Michael Tietz wrote in a “Crime Alert” listserv email to local businesses on Tuesday. Despite the use of genuine currency paper, the fake $100 bills can be detected through their inferior printing quality, by scrutinizing the watermark on the bill and examining the magnetic strip, according to Tietz. To determine whether currency is genuine or not, police recommend that businesses become familiar with the security features of U.S. currency. Information about these features can be found on the U.S. Secret Service website at www.secretservice.gov/know_ your_money.shtml. No suspects have been identified in the counterfeitbill incidents in Apple Valley last weekend.

Thisweekend Sunny sounds at the Frozen Apple

There will be blood … and books ‘Read & Bleed’ at Wescott Library combines Red Cross blood drive, appearance by St. Paul vampire-fiction author

by Andrew Miller Thisweek Newspapers

File photo

Acoustic artist Michael Monroe is bringing his sunny blend of folk, jazz and reggae to Apple Valley on Saturday, Feb. 4 as part of the Frozen Apple concert series hosted by the Apple Valley Arts Foundation. Admission is free to the 6 p.m. concert at the Apple Valley Community Center, 14603 Hayes Road, and food and beverages from local vendors will be available for purchase. The series, which kicked off Jan. 21 with a performance by the Harold Torrence Latin Vibe, concludes March 3 with nine-piece funk and soul band Menage a Neuf. More about the Frozen Apple concerts is at http://applevalleyarts.org/events.html.

Nurses, not fanged nightwalking fiends, will be doing the blood withdrawal at the Wescott Library on Saturday, Jan. 28. The library is partnering with the American Red Cross to offer “Read & Bleed,” which will include both a blood drive and an appearance by an author of vampire fiction. Tate Hallaway, author of the Vampire Princess series, will be on hand to sign and discuss her books during the blood drive from 11 a.m. to noon in the library’s lower level meeting room. The comically macabre concept behind “Read & Bleed” is twofold, according to Jennifer Verbrugge, youth

programming coordinator for Dakota County libraries. “We thought an appearance by a local author of vampire-themed novels might be a fun tie-in to the good work the American Red Cross Bloodmobile does – and maybe bring some teens into the library, too,” Verbrugge said. Though the Read & Bleed in Eagan is likely the first of its kind in Minnesota, Verbrugge said she cribbed the idea from the Gadsden Public Library in Alabama, which held a similar event in August 2011. The event is open to all, but blood donors must be at least 17 years old. Everyone who donates will be entered in a drawing to win a signed copy

In their latest five-year plan, officials in the Rosemount-Apple Valley-Eagan School District expect to balance the budget while avoiding cuts in the next two years. Adjustments may be made, however, in 2014-15 and 2016-17. “To go into a year without cutting would be amazing to us,” said Superintendent Jane Berenz. “But it’s because we have been frugal.” In the plan presented by Finance Director Jeff Solomon and selected by the School Board at its Jan. 23 retreat, the district would have a $291.7 million budget and a fund balance of $35.6 million. This is 12.05 percent of the general fund, which exceeds the board’s 8 percent goal.

The district expects to receive a $50 per pupil funding increase in 201213 as promised by the state. District 196 has already received an additional $50 per pupil in state aid this year. This amounts to $1.5 million each year in additional revenue. District 196 also will receive $2.96 million in compensatory funding starting in 2012-13. Legislators passed the one-time money for the 20 districts with the largest enrollment aside from Minneapolis, St. Paul and Duluth. District 196 is expected to receive the largest sum of this money. The district also expects to receive $1.63 million in literacy aid for 2012-13. The aid is based on literacy achievement of third- and fourth-graders.

This additional aid enabled district officials to avoid seeking a new operating levy referendum. District officials expect the state to keep funding flat in the following years. “We recognize the state’s challenges but that education has recently been a high priority,” Solomon said. Under its plan, the district will be able to avoid budget adjustments until 2014-15. At that point, officials will need to consider cutting $33 million as the district faces a potential deficit from 2015 to 2017. District 196 has had to make budget adjustments in the past few years, including this year, as it faced shortfalls in state aid. Jessica Harper is at jessica. harper@ecm-inc.com.

Eagan-based Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota announced last week that it has chosen a new CEO and president to lead the nonprofit health care insurer. Kenneth Burdick is expected to join Blue Cross in mid-February. He will succeed Patrick Geraghty, who left in July to join Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Florida, according to a news release.

entry, Burdick served as CEO of two UnitedHealth Group companies. He also held senior leadership positions at Travelers Companies and CIGNA Corporation. Burdick is a graduate of Amherst College and has a J.D. from the University of Connecticut School of Law. Jessica Harper is at jessica. harper@ecm-inc.com.
