An employee was injured early Tuesday morning in a vehicle fire at Spectro Alloys in Rosemount. According to Rosemount Fire Chief Scott Aker, the fire appears to have started at 12:37 a.m. when a payloader dumped scrap metal into a furnace and molten metal shot out onto the vehicle, causing it to erupt into flames. Rosemount firefighters and a HealthEast ambulance arrived within 10 minutes. Apple Valley firefighters were on stand-by at the Rosemount fire station to respond to other calls. Firefighters were able to extinguish the blaze within 30 minutes and Spectro Alloys’ building was not damaged in the fire, Aker said. The injured employee was transported by another Spectro Alloys employee to Apple Valley Medical Center, which referred him to Regions Hospital, Aker said. The employee was released from the hospital by 9:30 a.m. The incident is under investigation by Rosemount Fire Marshal John Kendall. Spectro Alloys is an aluminum recycling facility that serves the Midwest. The plant is located at 13220 Doyle Path near Highway 55 in Rosemount. Another Spectro Alloys employee was injured in October of 2008 when there was an explosion at the facility’s shredding bin.

A Rosemount man has been charged for allegedly forcing a young girl to wear diapers and urinate on herself while he shot photos and video, which he posted online. Richard Michael Marquardt, 35, of Rosemount was charged by the Dakota County Attorney’s Marquardt Office Feb. 8 with five counts of second-degree criminal sexual conduct and one count of possession of pornography involving minors. According to the complaint, the girl told her mother on Jan. 20 that Marquardt, a family friend, took nude photos of her. Rosemount police were notified and the girl reported that Marquardt made her urinate on herself and touched her inappropriately for the past four years. While conducting a warranted search of Marquardt’s home Jan. 21 police found a computer, digital camera, cell phone and associated media, which were seized. See Charges, 12A

If you’re not careful, nature kills Rosemount author Cary Griffith explores the wonders and dangers of the natural world in nonfiction works ‘Opening Goliath’ and ‘Lost in the Wild’ by Andrew Miller THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

For Rosemount resident Cary Griffith, it all began at Indian Creek. The avid outdoorsman and author of the wilderness-survival-oriented nonfiction works “Opening Goliath� and “Lost in the Wild� says his fascination with the natural world – the sense of wonder it offers, the dangers it holds – began at an early age in his hometown of Cedar Rapids, Iowa. “There was this creek off the end of the street where I lived and we spent our entire summers down there – wading, fishing, spearing carp,� he said. “It really was kind of a Huck Finn existence.� The outdoors-centered subject matter he tackles in his books isn’t quite so idyllic as his experiences at Indian Creek. His first book, “Lost in the Wild,� is a chilling account of two hikers who lost General 952-894-1111 Distribution 952-846-2070 Display Advertising 952-846-2011 Classified Advertising 952-846-2000

their way in the wilderness. “Opening Goliath,� published in 2009 and winner of the Minnesota Book Award, recounts the story of the three teenagers who died in a St. Paul cave in 2005 when a fire robbed the subterranean space of oxygen, as well as the story of John Ackerman and his fellow cavers’ exploration of the huge Goliath Cave complex in southeastern Minnesota about a half decade ago. Griffith became acquainted with Ackerman after publishing an article about cave exploring in Minnesota Conservation Volunteer, and soon grew enamored of the sheer chutzpah evinced by Ackerman and the other Goliath Cave explorers. “What these guys do is nothing short of absolute crazy,� he said. “The caves in southeastern Minnesota are cold, dark and dank, and these guys get into wet suits and crawl on their bel-

lies through razor-sharp sections.� Griffith, who’s employed as a writer for the Ceridian Corporation Griffith doing press releases, executive memos and other corporate documents, describes his nonfiction book work as an avocation. He’s set to speak at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 15, at the Robert Trail Library as part of the “Meet the Author� series sponsored by the Rosemount Area Arts Council and the library. He said his talk at the free library event will be a “CliffsNotes version� of the stories in “Opening Goliath,� and will feature a slideshow and PowerPoint presentation.

Discount retailer gets sign deviations for low-visibility space at Burnsville Center by John Gessner THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

Discount retailer Gordmans is moving into a prominent but low-visibility space in Burnsville Center. The Omaha, Neb.-based retailer plans to open its first Twin Cities store in March in the space on the west side of the mall that had been temporarily occupied by Becker Furniture Outlet. Citing the spaceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s limited visibility, the City Council voted 3-1 Feb. 8 to grant Gordmansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; request for a pair of variances from the sign ordinance. The retailer will be allowed a 624-square-foot wall sign over its main entrance, compared with the 300 square feet allowed by ordinance. It will be allowed a second wall sign of 360 square feet in a corner of the building. The ordinance allows only one

sign on the spaceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exterior. The smaller sign will be visible from busy County Road 42, said Harvey Swenson, director of property management and construction for Gordmans, which operates 68 stores in 16 mostly Midwestern states. The space faces Burnhaven Drive, not 42, which will limit visibility of the large entrance sign against a background of the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s signature purple. The space is further challenged because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s groundlevel only, located beneath Dickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sporting Goods. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a very challenging place to put a main entrance because it does not face 42,â&#x20AC;? said Council Member Dan Kealey, who joined Mayor Elizabeth Kautz and Council Member Dan Gustafson in voting for the deviations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is sunken down from street level.â&#x20AC;?

Previous tenants included Steve and Barryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and the ground floor of the old Mervyns department store. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Other stores that have been there didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do well,â&#x20AC;? Kautz said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would like to see Gordmans succeed.â&#x20AC;? Kealey said the entrance signâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s size is similar to what heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seen at malls in other states. Council Member Mary Sherry cast the dissenting vote. The city is in the process of revising its sign ordinance, which Sherry said she pushed for to be more responsive to contemporary retail needs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But honestly, this one is huge,â&#x20AC;? she said of the entrance sign. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think you can be responsive to retailersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; needs without going over the top.â&#x20AC;? Gordmans bills itself as a department store â&#x20AC;&#x153;conceptâ&#x20AC;? with a more contemporary, easy-to-shop feel. Stores are

brightly lit and have concrete floors, Swenson said. Name-brand goods are discounted by 50 to 60 percent, he said. Merchandise includes clothing, accessories, footwear and home decor.

Opinion Thisweek Columnist Walmart not your choice? Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in the minority by Larry Werner TRIBUNE EDITOR

At a dinner party Saturday night in Lakeville, just a few miles from where Walmart plans to build a new superstore, the conversation turned to whether the giant retailer is good or bad for the community. Most of us at the party declared that Walmart isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t where we enjoy shopping. Of course, we are fortunate folks who can afford the charming atmosphere and personal service you find in small shops on the main streets of our cities. And we agreed we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like seeing open land being filled up with big-box stores. But we also agreed itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inevitable that Lakeville, like neighboring cities such as Burnsville, Apple Valley and Eagan, is attracting Walmart and other mass retailers because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attracting people, who really decide which stores make sense. Years ago, I was interviewing Ted Mondale, then the chair of the Metropolitan Council. Mondale, now head of the Metropolitan Sports Facilities Commission, was presiding over an agency that was encouraging

walkable developments where people could work, shop and play without getting into their cars â&#x20AC;&#x201C; new downtowns with shops, restaurants and apartments above storefronts. Places like Burnsvilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Heart of the City or Apple Valleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Central Village or the historic downtowns of Lakeville, Farmington and Rosemount. Despite encouraging those kind of developments, some of the Met Council grants were going to developments that featured big-box stores, and I asked Mondale whether that was a contradiction. He said it was useless to try to stop big boxes, because the marketplace has voted. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Consumers have decided they would rather pay wholesale than retail,â&#x20AC;? he said. This was about the time many of Lakevilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s citizens were packing the City Council chambers over a proposal to allow a SuperTarget at I-35 and County Road 46 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; one exit north of the new County Road 70 interchange where Walmart wants to build. That Target store was going

into a beautiful, wooded piece of property that opponents said should be preserved. They said Target will destroy the environment and local, independent businesses. They said Target wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t support the community the way local businesses do. In other words, those opponents said many of the things about the SuperTarget that people are saying about Walmart. At that time, I was on the board of the Downtown Lakeville Business Association (DLBA) and owned a building occupied by one of those independent business people who feared Target, which would be selling many of the gift items she sold, but at a much lower price. At the time, the president of the DLBA was my good friend, Jody Enggren, who was managing her familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s century-old, independent grocery store in downtown Lakeville. Under Jodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leadership, the DLBA passed a resolution supporting the new SuperTarget, which has now been joined by a Best Buy, an Office Max and a Marshallâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s at the Timbercrest of Lakeville shopping center. Jody and the other down-

town business owners werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t naive about what the new Target might mean to them. In fact, a few years later, Enggrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s closed because of competition from the SuperTarget and other chains, including Cub and Rainbow. The DLBA members took the position that as Lakeville grows, it must be open to business development, even if the businesses who come take customers from those who were there before. When Cub decided to build near downtown Lakeville, I expressed concern to Judy Tschumper, executive director for the DLBA. She told me to calm down. When she was promoting Burnsvilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new downtown, Heart of the City, as that townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economic development director, Cub agreed to build there. Without the Cub that attracts large numbers of shoppers to the area, she said, it would have been very difficult to attract the small shops. The same argument was made when Target proposed a store in Apple Valleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cobblestone Lake retail area. If big boxes take the lead, small boxes will follow.

There are reasons to be concerned about the effect Walmart will have on small businesses. But the big store will pay property taxes that the city needs as it wrestles with school cuts. It will provide jobs and low prices that some people desperately need as we slog through this difficult recession. And it will provide new competition to businesses that, like Enggrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Market, might not survive. But thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the free-enterprise system that allows people to vote with their dollars when stores ask for your business. As one of my dinner-party friends concluded when weighing the pluses and minuses of the nearby Walmart, maybe it will make it easier for her to sell her home so she can move to a place where independent, locally owned merchants still thrive.

Letters Cuts and consequences To the editor: In a recent guest editorial, a writer pointed out that many instances of abuse on dates are considered merely â&#x20AC;&#x153;normal behaviorâ&#x20AC;? by the perpetrators and even the victims. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s apparent that it will require education

before much public awareness of what is appropriate on dates becomes common knowledge. In a comparable situation on a public policy scale, some members of the Legislature think that cuts in programs, which are the backbone of our stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quality of life, wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have any harmful consequences,

Correction

March 31 in Eagan listed the incorrect website adA Feb. 4 story about the dress for the Dakota CounWomEnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Conference on ty Regional Chamber of

and are in fact â&#x20AC;&#x153;normal behaviorâ&#x20AC;? in difficult economic times. Recent legislation by the Republican-led House in Minnesota has made tremendous cuts to programs in crucial areas of transportation, education, and social services. While members of the Republican majority frequently talk about

making cuts, they rarely discuss the harmful consequences of their actions. For example, in the past, when Gov. Tim Pawlenty single-handedly â&#x20AC;&#x153;borrowedâ&#x20AC;? more than $1 billion dollars from school districts, he never talked about the schools that are being cut to a four-day school week, the reduction in teaching staffs, the reduction in after-school activities, or the classes Commerce. The correct ad- that now have over 40 studress is www.dcrchamber. dents per room. He acted com. Thisweek regrets the as though his cuts wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t error. affect schools and children, which is either naive or

downright mean. Those cuts have consequences. According to the Quality Counts report (Education Week, Jan. 13, 2011), Minnesota is ranked 36th for education policy and performance. Cuts have affected our schools. Worse, we now learn that La Familia Guidance Center, a nonprofit mental health agency serving West St. Paulâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Latino and Chicano communities, is closing â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the result of shriveling government contracts and private support. La Familia joins Centro Legal, which provided low-cost

legal services for Hispanic immigrants and closed last year. The City Inc., an advocacy agency for Hispanics, closed last month. And La Escuelita, a Latino youth development agency started in 1991, is in financial trouble. Yes, cuts have consequences. In this case, it appears Republican cuts are destroying the Latino community. I imagine they hope the Latino community doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t decide to cut Republicans in 2012. JANICE R.

The calm before the storm Apple Valley wrestlers resting, waiting anxiously for sections by Andy Rogers THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

The Apple Valley wrestling team may look like it’s all business all the time. But with a week before the Section 3AAA meet, the team is tapering and appreciating what it has accomplished so far. “We’re just keeping things fresh and enjoying it,” head coach Jim Jackson said. “The kids know what they have to do. They’re focused when they need to.” So what does a team like Apple Valley work on to prepare for sections? “Perfect your strengths, work on your weakness and polish the little things,” Jackson said. “And do everything you can to stay healthy and keep mentally fresh.” Jackson knocked on some invisible wood when asked the health status of the Eagles. “Right now we’re pretty healthy,” Jackson said. The Eagles will begin to taper their schedule going from one and a half hour of practice to one with hopes of peaking for a second time

this season. To say they needed to peak the first time is an understatement. During two consecutive weekends in late December and early January, the Eagles won the Cheesehead Invitational in Kaukana, Wis., and the Clash in Rochester, securing the No. 1 ranking in the nation for the second year in a row. They were up against some of the best teams in the country like Blair Academy from New Jersey and Brandon from Florida. “Now we’ve got to peak for sections and state,” Jackson said. Ever since then, they have switched their minds to the Section 3AAA tournament and state from March 2 to 5. They will need that focus because they know everyone will give them their best effort, particularly Hastings, which is ranked No. 2 in the state by Guillotine. “We’re working on things like condition, form, there’s always something,” defending state champion at 125 pounds Matt Kelliher said.

“We’re really excited about all the stuff that’s happened this season. We worked hard for this, but we’re not going to slack. “We’re getting ready every day in practice.” The Eagles will be going for the team’s 19th state title and six wrestlers are hoping to defend their individual titles from a year ago. It will be the last chance to earn a gold medal for four seniors. Destin McCauley is going for his fifth state title, which would be the most individual titles in team history. Kelliher and Brandon Kingsley are going for a third and Steven Keogh his second. Two underclassmen would like to add a few more medals to wear around their neck. Junior Dakota Trom is in the hunt for his third and sophomore Daniel Woiwer is going for his second title. There may also be firsttime state champions from Apple Valley. Senior Jake Waste was runner-up last year at 171 pounds, and senior Jordan Kingsley was third at 103.

Wrestlers ready for sections

Apple Valley’s Corbin Farrell wrestles Lakeville North’s Aaron Almedina on February 3 during a dual. Apple Valley won 57-9. In the lower weights, freshman Seth Gross (103), senior Derek Scott (119) and seventh-grader Mark Hall (130) have spent time ranked at or near the top of their respective weight classes. Matt Hechsel came in fifth last season. He’s worked his way to a No. 1 ranking at 189. Corbin Farrell and Zach Martens have a goal of making state in the upper weights. Although several of their top wrestlers are seniors like Hechsel, Kelliher, Keogh,

Jordan Kingsley, Waste and Scott, Apple Valley doesn’t plan on rebuilding. They have mixed in several younger and less experienced wrestlers all season. “We like to see different guys in our lineup to get some younger guys some experience,” Jackson said. The Section 3AAA team meet is scheduled for Feb. 18 at Apple Valley. The individual meet is Feb. 25-26 at Park of Cottage Grove. Andy Rogers is at andy.rogers@ecm-inc.com.

Burnsville’s Jermisha Watson goes up for a shot against Eastview on Tuesday. Eastview notched a 49-44 win over an inspired Burnsville team, moving its record to 17-4 overall and 11-2 in the South Suburban Conference. The Lightning trailed by eight points at halftime but outscored the Blaze 31-18 in the second half. Lightning captains Alex Beckman and Jenna Dockter led the way in scoring with 23 and 19 points, respectively. Jessica Buck led Burnsville with 15 points and Jessica Ranke added 14.

Eagles rounding into shape Healthier Apple Valley boys basketball team hopes for better 2011 by Andy Rogers THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

When the Apple Valley boys basketball season opened, expectations were higher than a 5-7 start. The team also didn’t expect to endure injuries to several key players. Now that the team’s top two scorers – forward Tom Schalk and point guard Tyus Jones are back from injuries – they feel the Eagles could make a playoff run. “I think getting us all together to practice has really helped us,” Schalk said. “This is a good time to get rolling.” The Eagles have won six of seven since Jan. 21. During that stretch, the Eagles put up 97 points in regulation against Rosemount on Feb. 1 while making 69 percent of their shots. “We’re starting to come together now that we have all the pieces,” Schalk said.

Those pieces put together perhaps the team’s biggest victory of the season Tuesday when the Eagles beat South Suburban Conference leader, Lakeville South, 73-70. Schalk led all scorers with 29 points. The Cougars beat Apple Valley 65-46 earlier this season. As a senior, Schalk is feeling a sense of urgency to make the most of his remaining days with the Eagles. “It goes by so fast,” he said. “I’m thinking right now to make every game count and to play my best every time I step out on the court. “I really want to make a run and play as long as I can with this team.” That would mean going deep in the playoffs, which won’t be easy. Section 3-4A features Eastview, Lakeville North and Eagan. All have beaten Apple Valley at least once this season. “I think this team has the potential to win the section,” Schalk said, “definitely.” Jones, a ninth-grader, will have three years left of high school basketball, but he’s predicting big things

for his team this year. “We’ve come a long way defensively from the beginning of the season, but there’s room for improvement in everything you do in basketball,” Jones said. “You can never stop improving.” While Jones and Schalk were on the injured list, it gave minutes to others who gained valuable experience. Several starters were either on the bench or on junior varsity last year, so extra court time was welcome for Jordan Crockett, Dustin Fronk, Gavin Bronson, Josh Johnson and Harry Sonie. Those players will be needed if they want to advance to the section final. “We’ve got to stay focused mentally and physically,” Jones said. “We’ve got to want it more than they do. That’s the only way we can win it.” The Eagles will make the trip to Bloomington Kennedy on Friday before coming home to host crosstown rival Eastview on Tuesday. The Lightning defeated Apple Valley, 50-44, earlier this season in overtime.

Apple Valley’s Tom Schalk drives to the basket against Rosemount on Feb. 1. Eastview led 42-28 at one point during the game, but Apple Valley went on a 14-0 run to send the game into overtime. Eastview

has since won seven of eight. Andy Rogers is at andy.rogers@ecm-inc.com.

Thisweekend â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;An Evening of Art and Danceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Lakevilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ballet Royale fuses dance, visual art for Feb. 11 event by Andrew Miller THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

Ballet Royale Minnesota is bringing the work of three local visual artists to life in a Feb. 11 performance at the Lakeville Area Arts Center. â&#x20AC;&#x153;An Evening of Art and Danceâ&#x20AC;? will feature middle and high school-age dancers from Ballet Royale performing routines choreographed by three of the dance academyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s instructors â&#x20AC;&#x201C; co-directors Rick and Denise Vogt, and modern dance and creative movement teacher Bailey Anderson â&#x20AC;&#x201C; with each piece inspired by the work of a local artist. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The premise of this whole evening is to take a pre-existing visual piece of art and interpret it â&#x20AC;&#x201C; based on the mood, the colors, the brush strokes â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and choreo-

graph it to music,â&#x20AC;? said Rick Vogt, who devised a dance from his interpretation of a painting by Jimmy Longoria. Denise Vogt based her dance on a photo by James Flint of Lakevilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s James Flint Photography; Anderson used a painting by Alison Price for her choreography. The showâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s format will reveal whether or not the choreographer captured what the artist was shooting for. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Each artist will introduce their piece of art, then the choreographer will talk and say â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Well, this is what I saw,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; then the dancers will perform the piece,â&#x20AC;? Rick Vogt said. The event will conclude with coffee, refreshments and an informal Q-and-A
