Zoo could lose jobs, close exhibits Cedar Avenue If proposed cuts in state funding are passed, attraction would be scaled back by T.W. Budig ECM CAPITOL REPORTER

Minnesota Zoo Director Lee Ehmke warned of the potential for the zoo entering a tailspin should state funding cuts hit double-digits. “And (it could) produce a spiral effect that it will be pretty hard to get out of,� Ehmke told a House committee on Wednesday, March 9. Democratic Gov. Mark Dayton is proposing to cut funding to the zoo board by about $600,000 over the next two years – a 5 percent reduction to the zoo’s general fund. Government funding to the zoo has sharply decreased over the last 10 years, Ehmke explained. Currently, it hovers around 29 percent, he said. This is low compared to 220 other zoos and aquariums across the county. Nationally, on average, government funding for these institutions is around 40 percent, he said. Zoo officials understand the state faces big budget challenges. Ehmke warned double-digit funding cuts would result in layoffs and attractions at the zoo closing. One northern Minnesota lawmaker, Rep. David Dill, DFL-Crane Lake, asked Ehmke about the status of the zoo’s online services. His interest in the zoo’s online profile, Dill explained, stems from discus-

Apple Valley police have increased patrols in two neighborhoods where children waiting for the morning school bus reported being offered candy by four people in an SUV. The first incident occurred Thursday, March 10, at Feldspar Lane and Findlay Avenue, about a block from Faith Park; the second incident was Friday, March 11, at 144th Street West and Drumlin Court near Delaney Park. In both incidents, the children reported that a light-colored (champagne

or silver) SUV similar to a Dodge Durango or Chevy Suburban/Tahoe pulled up to the bus stop between 8:30 and 9:05 a.m. Witnesses described two of the vehicle’s occupants as white males in their late teens to early 20s, one bald and one with dark hair. In both cases witnesses reported the vehicle having four occupants. Police have upped patrol efforts in the two neighborhoods during school bus pick-up times, according to a Neighborhood Watch e-mail alert sent by the Apple Valley See Activity, 12A

Road work is set to begin April 4 for the long-planned upgrade of Cedar Avenue into a corridor for bus rapid transit. The two-year construction project, slated for completion in July 2013, will create bus-only shoulder lanes connecting Lakeville, Apple Valley and Eagan to downtown Minneapolis, and will convert fourlane segments of Cedar Avenue into six lanes. The Dakota County project extends from 181st Street in Lakeville to 138th Street in Apple Valley, where Cedar becomes a state road. Motorists can expect lane closures on southbound Cedar between 155th and 157th streets in Apple Valley, and on northbound Cedar between Dodd Road and 161st Street in Lakeville, during the first phase of construction which gets under way next month. At least one lane of Cedar will remain open in each direction during the day, according to See Construction, 12A

One Rosemount girl will be traveling to the nation of kangaroos and crocodiles as a U.S. student ambassador. Selena Arriaga, a fifthgrader at Red Pine Elementary in Eagan, was recently accepted into the People to People Student Ambassador Program, which will take her to Australia this summer. “I’m really excited to see everything there,� she said. People to People was founded in 1956 by former President Dwight D. Eisenhower to encourage peace among nations. Students are typically nominated for the program by a teacher or former ambassador “for their adventur-

ous spirit ... and desire to learn about foreign cultures,� a m o n g other characteristics, Selena according Arriaga to People to People website. Each ambassador is expected to “make a positive impression of the country while overseas,� according to the website. Arriaga said she does not know who nominated her. Once abroad from June 17 to July 1, Selena and 40 other fifth-graders from across Minnesota and Wisconsin will be able to learn about Australian culture by visiting

schools, sight-seeing in various cities, and meeting residents, government officials and Aborigines. “Knowing about other cultures could help her with college and a job a later in life,� Selena’s mother, Lori, said. Selena said she is looking forward to seeing the Great Barrier Reef and meet Australian students. This will not only be Selena’s first time abroad, but also her first time traveling alone. Her mother, Lori, said she is not too worried since the organization “has a good track record,� and Australia is a relatively safe place. “When an opportunity like this is there, you got to take it because they don’t

come often,� she said. The trip will cost the family $6,500, which they hope to cover through fund-raising efforts. So far, they have raised $2,500 by selling jars of cookie mix and other goodies during the holidays. Lori said they plan to recycle ink cartridges donated by residents and businesses to raise the remaining funds. “It would be a great opportunity for Selena to learn about how important recycling is while raising money,� Lori said. Those interested in donating, can contact Lori Arriaga at (952) 232-1719. E-mail Jessica Harper at: jessica.harper@ecm-inc.com

Hope for spring is eternal Pahl’s Market blooms where it was planted in the community by Tad Johnson THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

There may still be about a foot of snow covering the ground, but at Pahl’s Market in Apple Valley hope for spring is eternal. This week, that hope switched into high gear as the greenhouses were filled with flowers and people during the 13th annual Moss Basket Days. Many families around the area have made Moss Basket Days a yearly ritual as they take time to dirty their hands by designing and planting their own baskets. It is one of the many ways that Pahl’s Market has become intertwined into the fabric of the community. In recognition of its many years of support, the Lakeville Area Chamber of Commerce honored Jane and Gary Pahl of Lakeville as its 2010 Business Persons General 952-894-1111 Distribution 952-846-2070 Display Advertising 952-846-2011 Classified Advertising 952-846-2000

of the Year in January. Jane and Gary own the operation with Gary’s brother, Brian. It’s not the first such award for the Pahls, whose contributions to the community know no boundaries. Pahl’s was named the Small Business of the Year for 2004 by the Apple Valley Chamber of Commerce. Being recognized by chambers in two communities shows how wide of an impact Pahl’s Market has had in Dakota County and beyond. It has become a destination business for many people throughout the south metro as their products and service are known for quality. Many families have made trips to Pahl’s part of annual rituals such as its spring opening, the delivery of the first sweet corn batch in July, picking out pumpkins +&//:800%4 $,&3." / 45"$&:" "/%3&8 .*--&3

Chris Sauro isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t exaggerating when he describes the research that went into his book as a â&#x20AC;&#x153;massive undertaking.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Twins Platoonâ&#x20AC;? was 15 years in the making. By his own estimate, halfway through the process Sauro had already logged some 17,000 hours â&#x20AC;&#x201C; conducting interviews, poring over old Sauro documents, putting words to paper. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It became like a calling almost â&#x20AC;&#x201C; it became a very, very powerful driving force,â&#x20AC;? said the 61-year-old North Branch resident and insurance agent by profession. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As I got into it, there was a point where I remember thinking this is something I might not get done in my lifetime. I told my family not to throw away my research if I die, but to turn it over to someone who could complete it.â&#x20AC;? That grim prospect was rendered moot when â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Twins Platoonâ&#x20AC;? was published in February 2006. Billed as â&#x20AC;&#x153;an epic story of young Marines at war,â&#x20AC;? the nonfiction work tells the story of the titular platoon â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a group of 100 men and four women sworn into the Marine Corps at a Minnesota Twins game in June 1967. Sauro, who enlisted in the Marines while he was still attending North St. Paul High School, was among the 100 men sworn in that day. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This book tells the story of what happened to us after we were cheered off the ball field. It tells of our Marine Corps training, our Vietnam experiences, and what happened to us when we returned home,â&#x20AC;? Sauro writes on the bookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website, www. twinsplatoon.com.

Apple Valley man leads police on chase in Eagan by Tad Johnson THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

A 45-year-old Apple Valley man was charged on March 9 in Dakota County District Court for fleeing police and leading them on a short highspeed chase on Interstate 35E in Eagan. Delmond Clarence Huck was charged with felony fleeing a peace officer in a motor vehicle and gross misdemeanor third-degree driving while

impaired. After a report of erratic driving was called in at about 11:30 p.m. March 5, Huck allegedly led Eagan police officers on a chase on I-35E with speeds reaching approximately 100 mph. The pursuit allegedly started when Huck left the on-ramp from Pilot Knob Road to southbound I-35E. Officers saw his vehicle tailgate the car in front

and as soon as Huck came to I-35E, the Ford Cobalt he was driving shot across all lanes of traffic. When officers activated emergency lights, the vehicle increased speed to approximately 100 mph. Huck pulled over about two miles later near the Diffley Road exit. It took approximately two to three minutes for Huck to respond to officersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; shouted commands. When he did, Huck

climbed out of the driverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s side window. Officers noted that Huckâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s balance appeared to be unsteady. He eventually was laid on his stomach and handcuffed, at which time officers reported an overwhelming aroma of alcohol emitting from him.

Huck later failed field sobriety tests taken at the Eagan Police Department and provided a urine sample. The erratic driving report alleges that Huck was driving northbound on I-35E into the median, tossing snow into the air and swerving in all three

lanes of traffic. Huck had his license revoked in 2005 for driving under the influence. The maximum sentence for the new charges is six years and/or $13,000 in fines. Tad Johnson is at editor. thisweek@ecm-inc.com.

Rosemount National sells St. Paul branch by Jessica Harper THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

Rosemount National Bank recently sold its St. Paul location to University National Bank. The branch, which is located at 1351 Arcade St. in St. Paul, will become the eighth branch owned by the family of Sunrise Community Banks, which owns University National, Park Midway Bank in St. Paul and Franklin Bank in Minneapolis. The details of the sale have not been released. The deal will leave Rosemount National solely with the location at 15055 Chippendale Ave. S. in Rosemount.

Opinion Thisweek Columnist

Ten years is an eternity for a school chief by Larry Werner THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

I went home Tuesday with the news we reported earlier that day on ThisweekLive.com â&#x20AC;&#x201C; that Gary Amoroso, Lakevilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s school superintendent, had announced his retirement after 10 years on the job. My wife, Ann, who has been in education as long as Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been in newspapers â&#x20AC;&#x201C; about 40 years â&#x20AC;&#x201C; responded to the news by saying: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a long time to be a school superintendent.â&#x20AC;? Ten years? My father worked 40 years as a truck mechanic with the same company. But he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to face the pressures of trying to keep everyone happy from rebellious students to meddling parents to unionized teachers. Not to mention school board members who change every few years. Yes, 10 years is a long time to run a school district, with some studies showing the average tenure is less than five years for that job. And Amoroso has certainly had

his share of stresses during his time with District 194. He became superintendent when Lakevilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s growth was forcing the district to open new schools, with the big project a second high school. He is leaving after the School Board made the painful decision to close Crystal Lake Elementary and eliminate jobs and programs because of the funding cuts brought on by the Great Recession. Similar stresses were felt a few miles down the road in Farmington, where Superintendent Brad Meeks has agreed to resign this summer after years of turmoil associated with building a new high school and more recent controversy over cuts. Since 2008, when Randy Clegg replaced the retiring Ben Kanninen as superintendent of the Burnsville-Eagan-Savage schools, all four districts covered by Thisweek Newspapers have changed bosses. In 2009, Jane Berenz was named superintendent of District

196 to replace the retiring John Currie. Meeks is the only one of the four who wanted to stay in the school-superintendent pressure cooker. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a finalist for the job of superintendent in Stillwater. The others have found other things to do that presumably donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t keep them up nights worrying about the next major controversy and the next overflow board meeting where no one is happy with the decisions youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re making. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve known Amoroso since he came to Lakeville, and it seemed he had the personality for the job. He is a friendly fellow who has been involved in the community, whether it was the Rotary or chamber of commerce events. He did a nice job of presenting the facts at annual State of the School lunches and at community meetings when the district was asking voters to approve levies. If he felt the stress of the job, he hid it well behind a smile and a hearty handshake. But the responsibility of the position, especially in these pen-

ny-pinching times, can wear on even those most youthful, resilient of superintendents. Managing a public school system is a well-paying, but thankless, job these days. We expect a lot, maybe too much, from our educators. We want them to treat our children as individuals in classes that are large and getting larger as funding dries up. I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help but wonder whether itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to change the way we do our schools. Ann and I found that despite our loyalty to the mainstream public schools, our son, Zack, needed the personal attention available in a charter school that he couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get in the large public schools. Many other parents are resorting to home-schooling and parochial schools. In Detroit, which clearly has more problems than our cities, the school district has decided to cut expenses by turning a third of its public schools into charter schools that arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t saddled with the expense of union contracts and staff pensions.

These are turbulent times in public education. They are probably not going to get easier as legislatures and school districts wrestle with budget deficits. So you can expect that the turnover among school superintendents will continue. As Aaron Vehling, our Lakeville editor, reported on our website Wednesday morning, Amoroso will be taking over as executive director of the Minnesota Association of School Administrators. So instead of putting up with the daily stresses of managing schools, he can hold the hands and dry the tears of the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s school leaders as they deal with the stresses that Gary has now put in his rearview mirror.

Letters Thanks, Charlie To the editor: Burnsville has lost a dedicated public servant in the passing of Charlie Crichton. For many years the people of Burnsville depended on Charlie to fight against raising taxes and to be always there for every citizen. I had the pleasure, and honor, to take part in his campaigns for City Council through the years. I was always interested in politics, but Charlie was the person who encouraged me to become an active participant. For that, and his long friendship, I am grateful. Thanks, Charlie. CHUCK ERICKSON Burnsville

Local politicians ready to listen

The loss of a friend Educate our To the editor: young people It is with much sadness that I say goodbye to my old friend, Charlie Crichton. Charlie served the city of Burnsville with honesty, honor, integrity, wisdom and wit for decades. Every single person in Burnsville has been touched by Charlie in one way or another. The work that he has done and the impact that he leaves behind will live on for many, many years. I was always amazed at the level of energy and passion that Charlie demonstrated in everything he did. Although many years my senior I often had to hustle to keep up with him. Charlie taught me so much. To me he was a teacher, a mentor, an example of proper citizenship, a leader, and most of all, my friend. Charlie and I agreed on many things and disagreed on some, but always held the highest respect for each otherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s position. I am passionate about politics in Burnsville, and I learned that from Charlie as well. I cannot think about Burnsville city government without thinking of Charlie. Charlieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s passing has touched me profoundly. Even as I write this I struggle for words that are adequate to express the flood of emotion that I feel at the loss of this great man. We will go on because we must. Our world has been changed by his presence, and the future will be changed by his absence. Goodbye, my good friend.

To the editor: I read with interest the letter from Paul Hoffinger about the need for legislators to hold listening sessions. I agree. That is why I am pleased that new elected Sen. Ted Daley, R-Eagan, and Rep. Doug Wardlow, R-Eagan, are holding listening sessions with constituents regularly on Saturday mornings at the Wescott Library in Eagan (no appointments necessary). I have raised concerns with both, and they have been very open to hearing my concerns. I also know they are willing to meet constituents at their offices in St. Paul and are also willing to do additional meetings in the district as time permits. You can also sign up for their e-mail updates by contacting their of- JERRY WILLENBURG fices. Burnsville

BRUCE ANDERSON Eagan

To the editor: A recent letter discussed increases in property taxes and their unfortunate impact on senior citizens on fixed incomes. Certain investments in our future are key. They include educating our young people so they can compete in an increasingly technical world. Senior citizens should not bear the brunt of these expenses, in fact many feel there should be a way of exempting them from such payments. And the legacy we leave our young people, particularly in the crucial area of education, gives them an example of the priorities we hope they follow when they are funding their priorities.

Bill would create a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;safe harborâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; for youths Dakota County officials back measure that would not charge juveniles forced into prostitution with crimes by T.W. Budig

voice strained with emotion. She lost her family. She lost her friends. Boyum, now 31, said had she known there were places like Breaking Free, a St. Paul-based organization serving women and girls who have been involved in prostitution, things might have turned out differently for her. It is important for people to know â&#x20AC;&#x153;that there is a safe place to go, where youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not going to be treated like criminals,â&#x20AC;? she said of Breaking Free. Smithâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bill defines prostitution as a crime chargeable only to adults. The legislation denotes those who wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be charged with a crime as â&#x20AC;&#x153;sexually exploited youth.â&#x20AC;? The bill increases penalties for adults convicted of engaging in prostitution activity with other adults, slating the additional revenue for development of a statewide â&#x20AC;&#x153;safe harborâ&#x20AC;? program for sexually exploited youths. One committee member asked what would happen to a child engaging in prostitution who refused to participate in such a program. Backstrom explained existing child protection laws could intervene in such a case. Smithâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bill was held over for possible inclusion into a larger bill. No votes were taken.

THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

Dakota County officials testified before a House committee Tuesday, March 15, on behalf of legislation advocates believe will protect children caught up in prostitution from being legally victimized. Rep. Steve Smith, RMound, is carrying legislation that would exclude alleged child prostitutes from falling under such labels as juvenile petty offender. Advocates cite studies showing child sexual trafficking is a growing problem in Minnesota â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the average age of girls forced into prostitution is between 11 to 14. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wrong such victims are treated by the legal system as criminals, they argue. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is an important piece of legislation,â&#x20AC;? Dakota County Attorney James Backstrom said. He said Ramsey County Attorney John Choi believes children forced into prostitution should not be treated as juvenile delinquents. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(They should) treat

Thisweekend The inmates are running the asylum, and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re invited Chameleon Theatre Circle presents â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;a nightmare of insanityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; with its latest production, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Marat/Sadeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; by Andrew Miller THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

A brutal flogging. A sickly man in a bathtub ranting about revolution. Orgiastic revelry among booze-addled insane asylum inmates. Burnsville-based Chameleon Theatre Circleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s production of the avantgarde classic â&#x20AC;&#x153;Marat/Sadeâ&#x20AC;? is nothing if not lurid. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s never a dull moment,â&#x20AC;? director Garrick Dietze said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is definitely suggested for mature audiences.â&#x20AC;? And when Dietze says â&#x20AC;&#x153;there might be nudityâ&#x20AC;? in the show, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not just being coy â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the final decision on whether or not to include scenes of nudity was to be made Thursday (after this edition went to press). â&#x20AC;&#x153;Marat/Sade,â&#x20AC;? which opens March 25 for a threeweek run at the Burnsville Performing Arts Center, is set in a French insane asylum in 1808, and depicts looney bin denizens in various states of psychosis (and drunkenness) staging a play about the French Revolution under the direction of that grimly pornographic

Sports Eagles basketball one win from state Apple Valley boys will play Lakeville South on Friday in the Section 3-4A final by Andy Rogers THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

There won’t be too many surprises when Apple Valley travels to Northfield for the Section 3-4A boys basketball final Friday night. Waiting for the Eagles will be senior-heavy Lakeville South, a team Apple Valley’s all-time leading scorer Tom Schalk has played against for years. “I’ve always had good battles with them,” Schalk said. “We’ve played them so many times. We know what their tendencies are. I’ve been playing those seniors since eighth grade. It’s going to be a fun game.” The game is scheduled for 7 p.m. at Skoglund Arena at St. Olaf College. The Eagles have been on quite a run ever since the team has been

at full strength. Freshman guard Tyus Jones missed half the season with an injury and Schalk didn’t play in three games. Since losing to Lakeville North on Jan. 25 by 13 points, Apple Valley has gone 12-1 thanks to a healthy roster and the development of several younger players. It’s no coincidence that the Eagles turned an 7-8 record to 19-9 when Jones and Schalk returned to the court. “Tom and Tyus have been playing really well,” head coach Zach Goring said. “Going to state has been the focus all season.” Their absence gave room for other players to grow. Jones isn’t the only underclassman propelling the Eagles. Sophomores Harry Sonie and Dustin Fronk

have become key cogs in the machine. “We lost a couple seniors from last year’s team,” Schalk said. “We didn’t know who was going to fill those spots. They’ve done a lot for us.” Seniors Josh Johnson, Gavin Bronson and Jordan Crockett have played supporting roles in advancing the Eagles to the section final. Apple Valley got there by beating Rosemount 67-59 in the semifinals March 12 in Northfield. Although Rosemount was the section’s No. 7 seed, Apple Valley didn’t take the team lightly. “We beat them like a week ago by two points (66-64 on March 4),” Goring said. “We weren’t surprised about what they did in the quarterfinals.” Rosemount upset No. 2 seed

Eagan 60-59 on March 8. Against Apple Valley, the Irish came from all angles. Matt Nelson led Rosemount with 13 points. Evan Mitchell and Brandon Forcier each had 11. The Eagles led the entire game, and they never let their guard down. “We made plays when we needed too,” Schalk said. “They’re a tough team to beat. We did a good job of taking away what they wanted to do.” Mitchell sank two free throws to cut Apple Valley’s lead to 6159 with 48 seconds left. “We just couldn’t put them away,” Goring said. “I’m not surprised. They’re a tough match-up for us.” Jones, who led all scorers with 21 points, made some free throws, created a steal and tossed

in a layup to seal the win in the final seconds. Apple Valley last qualified for state in 2009 when it lost to Osseo 54-46 in the first round. Schalk is the only current player who logged significant minutes during the Osseo game. His advice is to do what you do best and treat the section final like any other game. “Don’t try to do too much,” Schalk said. “Hit your free throws, and get the rebounds, and I think we’ll be alright.” The Eagles also qualified in 2007 when they defeated Lakeville South 91-69 in the third-place game at state. Although there are very few connections left besides the names on the uniforms they will be wearing. Andy Rogers is andy.rogers@ecm-inc.com.

Wildcats bring home the bronze Eagan boys hockey defeats Edina in Class AA third-place game by Andy Rogers THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

It’s hard to muster motivation once a team has been bounced into the consolation bracket, but the Eagan boys hockey team regained its winning spirit. In Eagan’s second-ever trip to the boys state hockey tournament, the Wildcats placed third. After a disappointing semifinal loss to Eden Prairie on March 11, the Wildcats beat Edina less than 24 hours later to bring home the third-place trophy on Saturday at the Xcel Energy Center. Eagan’s defense played a major role in the Wildcats state tournament run. “They forced some of our best guys to not have a good game, I can tell you that,” Moorhead head coach Dave Morinville said of their quarterfinal game. Eagan head coach Mike Taylor said his team spends a lot of time practicing defense and takes pride in playing physical. “We say you have to play defense if you want to be an

We had a couple slip-ups this year, but we’re pretty poised in our own net.” The players don’t mind the philosophy. “We have a lot of guys

who like to hit, and we find it fun,” Eagan junior forward Michael Zajac said. In the third-place game, Eagan defeated No. 2 seed Edina 5-4. Eagan took a 3-0 lead early with goals from Ryan Nelson, Eli May and Nick Kuchera. Edina cut it to 4-3 early in the third pe-

riod, but an empty-net goal by Will Merchant sealed the win. Goalie Tommy Bodeker made 16 saves for the Wildcats. Eagan lost to eventual state champion Eden Prairie in the quarterfinals, 5-1. Eagan trailed 4-0 before

The Icettes figure skating team from Apple Valley Sports Arena finished first in the Large Production Team event at the 2011 ISI Winter Classic Skating National Competition in St. Louis, Mo. The Icettes consistently finished in the top three in most of their individual and team events, which put them in second place overall. The Winter Classic had more than 750 skaters representing 33 teams, 11 states and Mexico. Next up for the Icettes is the annual ice show “On Broadway” at 7 p.m. on March 18 and 19 at the Apple Valley Sports Arena. Tickets are $6 for adults and $4 for students/seniors.

The program is on the list to be cut from School District 196’s budget. “Right now our booster club is appealing to the school district,” Icettes public relations director Erica Schmidt said. “It is nothing but a positive influence on the kids. We are really working hard to keep it alive.”

remaining in the contest. Bodeker had 72 saves during the three-game tournament. Kuchera and Merchant were named to the all-tournament team. Eagan’s season ended with a 21-7-2 record, and the excitement is already growing for next season with several juniors on the team. It was the last game for seniors Bodeker, Loew, Kyle Bonstrom, Ryan Lenson, John Carroll, Matt Yetzer and Alex Cimochowski, but several players should return for another run.

Kuchera scored the only Eagan goal. The Wildcats defeated Moorhead 4-0 in the quarterfinals. Kuchera broke the ice early with an unassisted goal, which helped the Wildcats ease the anxiety of playing at state for the first time. “It helped us a lot just not being scared and just playing our game,” Merchant said. The score remained 1-0 until there was 4:18 left in the game when Merchant sent several fans to the exit with an unassisted goal. Cody Mason added an empty net goal with 2:10 left and Brady Loew added another with two seconds

Nash named Alpine Coach of the Year Derek Nash of Burnsville High School was named as the 2010-11 Alpine Coach of the Year by the Minnesota State Alpine Coaches Association.

“I was nominated by my fellow coaches, and am honored to be recognized for the work that I do in the high school ski racing community,” Nash said. “To be nominated was really honor enough, but to actually be voted in by my peers is truly a humbling experience.” Nash is in his 12th season coaching either girls or boys Alpine ski teams. The boys Alpine ski team finished the season with a 21-13 overall record, placed second in the South Suburban Conference, and placed second in Section 6, which qualified the team for state. At state, the team placed fifth. Skiers on the team were Erik Bain, David DuSchane, Jimmy Coyne, Jordan Huus, Tom Flickinger and Jon Garbe.

Basketball playoff partners re-aligned for next year by Andy Rogers THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

As the Section 3-4A playoffs come to a close, the Minnesota State High School League has announced it’s moving several area basketball teams to a different sections for 2011-12. Every two years, the MSHSL board re-classifies and re-assigns sections based on enrollment, geography and competitive bal-

ance. There are no appeals on the moves. In boys basketball, Lakeville North rejoins Section 1-4A with southern Minnesota schools from the Rochester area. Lakeville played in the section for several years until the school was moved to Section 3-4A after the 2007 season. Burnsville and Lakeville South have been moved from Section 3-4A to 2-4A

with other southwestern metro schools such as Eden Prairie, Prior Lake and the two Bloomington schools. Apple Valley, Eagan and Rosemount remain in Section 3-4A. Cretin-Derham Hall, East Ridge and Henry Sibley will replace Burnsville, Lakeville North and Lakeville South. In girls basketball, the moves are basically the same except Burnsville will remain

in Section 3-4A. There was a major revision for gymnastics. Apple Valley, Eastview, Lakeville North and Lakeville South will move to Section 2AA with the Bloomington, Chanhassen and Prior Lake schools. Eagan and Rosemount remain in Section 3AA, but they will have a new opponent in the playoffs from Farmington, which moved

from Section 1AA. Other moves of note: • Henry Sibley football moved from Class 5A to 4A. They were in Section 4 with Eagan. Henry Sibley will also leave the Section 3AA hockey bracket and play in Class A. • Lakeville South golf was moved from Section 1AAA to Section 2AAA. • Holy Angels joins Section 3AAA volleyball.

• In wrestling, Eden Prairie and Edina were added to Section 2AAA, where Lakeville North, Lakeville South and Farmington wrestle. • Hastings switched from Section 3AAA to Section 1AAA in wrestling. It was replaced by Minneapolis Southwest. Andy Rogers is at andy.rogers@ecm-inc.com.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Elsewhereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; author visits Glacier Hills Elementary Jacqueline West spent past week speaking about her series and literature to fourth-graders by Jessica Harper THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

Books come to life at one Eagan elementary school as students meet the authors behind their favorite tales. Author Jacqueline West spent the past week speaking to fourthgraders at Glacier Hills Elementary about her series called â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Books of Elsewhereâ&#x20AC;? and literature in general. Westâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first book in the series, called â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Shadows,â&#x20AC;? was a hit among the students who read it prior to her visit. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They would often beg me to let them continue reading at

the end of each session,â&#x20AC;? said Dan Gasteazoro, a fourth-grade teacher at Glacier Hills. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The character really resonates with the students.â&#x20AC;? The book, which was released in June, features an 11-year-old girl named Olive Dunwoody who faces a wacky adventure after her family moves into a rundown Victorian mansion filled with oddities and talking cats. West, a Red Wing resident, said the character and setting was inspired by an eerie mansion in her hometown of River Falls, Wis. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The owner was an inventor of wind-powered machines that were all over his lawn,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As a child, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d dream about what the family was like that lived there.â&#x20AC;? West said she hopes her book, which is a New York Times Best Seller and 2010 Minnesota Book Award finalist, inspires students

to trust themselves and their abilities. Her visit is part of the magnet schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s author-in-residence program, which encourages authors to teach students about literature. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Having her here, has gotten students excited to read and learn about literature,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; said fourthgrade teacher Ann Yule. Students in Yuleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s class eagerly raised their hands on March 15 hoping to earn a â&#x20AC;&#x153;Books of Elsewhereâ&#x20AC;? bookmark as West quizzed them on famous authors and childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s books.

Under NO circumstance should you send any money in advance or give the client your checking, license ID, or credit card numbers. Also beware of ads that claim to guarantee loans regardless of credit and note that if a credit repair company does business only over the phone it s illegal to request any money before delivering its service.

Pahlâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s clients include such supermarket heavyweights as SuperValu/Cub Foods, Target and Rainbow.

Pahl said in reference to prices dropping after freeze conditions struck in Florida. The farming operation also requires in some cases 24-hour care through constant monitoring, irrigation

The monetary value of the efforts of volunteers amounts to nearly $2 million a year, the zoo estimates. Ehmke had a second appearance at the Capitol before the House legacy committee in the afternoon.

The speed limit will be reduced from 50 mph to 35 mph in construction zones. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pretty common on any road work you see,â&#x20AC;? Beckwith said of the 15 Activity/from 1A Police Department. The e-mail alert also included suggestions for parents to keep their children safe, such as: â&#x20AC;˘ Parents are advised to walk their children to the school bus stop. â&#x20AC;˘ Make children aware of the dangers of strangers approaching them.

and contact with customers. Gary much prefers the predictability and control of the 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. retail growing operation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We should be able to grow flowers in a controlled environment without mean Mother Nature pushing against us,â&#x20AC;? he said. With many years of experience and trial by error, Pahlâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s has the formula for growing hearty plants. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The objective of having so many different houses is that the different styles have different growing conditions for different flowers,â&#x20AC;? Pahl said. As a result of having so many houses, Pahlâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s can target pests if needed. Gary said the company rarely uses more than $1,000 worth of pesticide in a year because bugs are an uncommon sight. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have always been quality-conscious,â&#x20AC;? Gary said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Number two for us is price. We know we have to be competitive.â&#x20AC;? That is true in Apple Valley and Dakota County as garden centers and other retail competition are everywhere. From the Home Depot up the street to Bachmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not far down County Road 42, Pahlâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s strives to have the best quality at the best price. He says one way for customers to ensure they have a quality plant is to count the

number of breaks and nodules. He says Pahlâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plants outgrow the competition. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You can see the difference in late July or August,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You always get what you pay for.â&#x20AC;? Pahlâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s is a member of the Minnesota Nursery and Landscape Association and employs a certified nursery professional. To further diversify the business, Pahlâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s started offering landscape installation and design in 2005. Through their experienced staff, Pahlâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s installs irrigation systems, landscape walls, patios, plants and much more.

Giving back Through their business, the Pahls have given back to the community in many ways. Gary has been involved for 15 years with the Minnesota Fruit and Vegetable Board and the Minnesota Grown advisory committee. He has sat on the Lakeville Chamber of Commerce board and the UMore Park advisory council, and has been head or assistant coach with the Lakeville Hockey Association for the past seven years. Jane has been active with Lakeville Chamber committees and fundraisers, served on the Lewis House Golf Tournament fundraiser and the Apple Valley Chamber board, and has been president of the Lakeville North Booster Club, Competition Cheer squad and chair of the Design Committee at All Saints Church.

Rep. Kurt Bills, R-Rosemount, is carrying legislation that would slate some $4 million in legacy funding to the zoo over the next two years. Bills termed the zoo as an â&#x20AC;&#x153;intermediaryâ&#x20AC;? between Minnesotans and the environment, wildlife and agriculture. House legacy funding committee Chairman Dean Urdahl, R-Grove City, said the zoo will get some fund-

ing in the House legacy bill, but not the total amount that it wants. The Minnesota Zoo receives more than 1.3 million visitors annually â&#x20AC;&#x201C; more than 90,000 school children visit every year. The zoo contains some 2,300 animals and 75 endangered or threatened species.

mph reduction. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s for the safety of the workers.â&#x20AC;? In addition to the lane upgrades, the project involves changes to some side roads, adding turn lanes, building retaining and noise walls, updating public utilities (storm sewer, water main and sanitary sewer), and upgrading stop-light systems. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At this exact time we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know when side streets will be closed,â&#x20AC;? Beckwith said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Typically youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re go-

ing to see signage at least a week before (the closures).â&#x20AC;? Regular updates about the construction on Cedar Avenue will be posted at www.dakotacounty.us (search â&#x20AC;&#x153;constructionâ&#x20AC;?). Questions about the project can be directed to the Dakota County Transportation Department at (952) 891-7900.

â&#x20AC;˘ Teach children not to accept any gifts from people they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know. â&#x20AC;˘ Encourage children to report any suspicious incidents to their parents or a trusted adult. â&#x20AC;˘ Be a good witness. Note a suspectâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s physical qualities such as skin color, hair color, any distinguishing marks, scars, tattoos and clothing. Also note any ve-

hicle make, model, color, license plate number and direction of travel. Anyone with information about the two incidents is advised to contact Apple Valley police at (952) 9532700.

Dakota City makes changes to summer youth camp Several changes have been made to the â&#x20AC;&#x153;1900 Apprenticesâ&#x20AC;? summer day camp offered by Dakota City Heritage Village in Farmington. The four-day sessions have been lengthened to run from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. and a camp for older youths has been added. Some new activities are in the planning stages. Youths ages 6-12 are invited to attend camp June 20-23, June 27-30 or July 25-29. They will experience life in 1900 by helping with chores, participating in a country school day and learning crafts from the 1900s.

District 196 Bill aims to protect ticket resale Sen. Chris Gerlachâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ticket bill advances in the Senate magnet schools honored by T.W. Budig

The bill, on a voice vote, was passed on to the Senate Judiciary Committee. There was some debate. Sen. Ann Rest, DFLNew Hope, said she had gone back and forth all week on the bill. She backed it 51 percent, she said. But she really believes the proposal needs a lot of scrutiny by the Legislature, she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think Senator Gerlach is trying to do what he thinks is right,â&#x20AC;? said Sen. Dan Sparks, DFL-Austin. But Sparks raised concerns that some big acts would refuse to play in Minnesota with the legislation on the books. Gerlach said he did not foresee his bill getting the media attention that it has, but added sometimes the media and public latch onto certain bills. He â&#x20AC;&#x153;absolutelyâ&#x20AC;? views his bill as a consumer protection bill, he said, speaking after the hearing.

Cedar Park Elementary Science, Technology, Engineering and Math School and Diamond Path Elementary School of International Studies were both selected to receive a 2011 Magnet School of Distinction Award from Magnet Schools of America. The award recognizes magnet schools that show a commitment to high academic standards, curriculum innovation, successful desegregation/diversity efforts, specialized teaching staffs, and parent and community involvement. Cedar Park and Diamond Path were two of 75 magnet schools nationwide and six in Minnesota to receive a 2011 Magnet School of Distinction Award. Cedar Park also received the award in 2010, along with Glacier Hills Elementary School of Arts and Science.
