Navigating Cedar Avenue will be a challenge Construction work for a BRT line began this week; groundbreaking is on April 11

by Aaron Vehling THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

Short-term troubles for longterm gains. This is a mantr a that pervades travel along Cedar A venue in A pple Valley and Lakeville. Dakota County kicked off two years of construction f or the ne w bus rapid transit (BRT) line along the street last Monday, April 4. The initial phase of construction starts at 155th Street in Apple Valley and ends at Dodd Boulevard in Lakeville, said County Engineer Mark Krebsbach. Crews will widen Cedar to cr eate lanes dedica ted to b us and emergency vehicles. The idea, Krebsbach said, is tha t buses will be able to circumvent traffic. Hence the “rapid” in BRT. During the construction, cars will use the inner lanes w hile the outer lanes are worked on and vice versa, Krebsbach said. In 2012, the county will so the same thing with the northern end of the project area in Apple Valley from 155th Str eet to 138th Str eet, which is just before Cedar becomes a freeway. Finally, in 2013, “w e’ll be back for any final paving that might be needed,” he said. T urf establishment and landsca ping work will ensue. The process of moving the utili-

BRT, more than a bus

BRT differs from standard or express bus routes in tha t special buses travel along dedica ted rights-of-way, akin to a light r ail. This allows for quicker transit times. Also like light r ail, BRT features regular but shorter intervals of buses. Just show up and ride. The buses are equipped with a device that allows for “Transit signal priority,” Krebsbach said. “When conditions allo w, it will allow a bus to extend a green light,” he said. What it will not do, however, is afford a b us driver the a bility to turn a r ed light gr een, something only public safety officials can do. Photo by Rick Orndorf

mountain bikers by Erin Johnson THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

County park officials are seeking input fr om local mountain bikers on a plan to upgrade the Le banon Hills Mountain Bike Trailhead. An open house to discuss the project will be held from 5 to 7 p .m. Thursday, April 14 at the Lebanon Hills Visitor Center, located at 860 Cliff Road in Eagan. Plans for the upgrade include the addition of a small picnic shelter, restrooms, a drinking fountain and maintenance storage space. The current gravel parking lot and entrance will also get a mak eover, complete with paving and a small increase in par king capacity. Changes to the entrance aim to make it safer f or users to access, said Bruce Blair, manager of facility development for Dakota County parks. This is a very basic, functional upgrade that was included in a master plan developed about 10 y ears ago, Blair said. Drawings of the curr ent plan will be a vailable at the open house, and County staff and consulting ar chitects will be on hand to e x-

plain the project. But the feedback of mountain bikers themselves – a v ery organized group, Blair said – is key to the success of the project. “We want to mak e sure we’re checking in with the predominant users in the mountain biking comm unity,” he said. “Users can do the best job of telling us what works and what doesn’t work.” Regular trail users would know better than an ybody the practical considerations of laying out the space, such as how much room is needed between parking spaces to get bikes down from the tops of cars, Blair said. “We’re fact-checking with the community: Is this going to work for you folks who are going to be using this?” he said. The project, which is budgeted to cost ar ound $500,000, will be funded by a ca pital improvement grant from the Metropolitan Council. Construction is expected to begin in late August.

Valley Middle School drama club presents â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Beauty and the Beastâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

Grace Hoffaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s costume took some getting used to. The Valley Middle School eighth-grader is cast as the anthropomorphic tea k ettle Mrs. Potts in the school drama clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spring m usical, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Beauty and the Beast.â&#x20AC;? Her costume â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a puf fy dress designed to r esemble a tea pot â&#x20AC;&#x201C; includes one ar m bent, permanently, at a 90 degree angle. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It kind of got sore in the beginning (of rehearsals), but I tough it out,â&#x20AC;? she said with a laugh. â&#x20AC;&#x153;No pain, no gain.â&#x20AC;? Hoffa is among more than 120 Valley Middle School students involved in the pr oduction â&#x20AC;&#x201C; as actors, tech crew members and backstage helpers. The high n umber of students involved in â&#x20AC;&#x153;Beauty and the Beastâ&#x20AC;? isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t unusual for drama club shows, said assis-

tant director Jenni Hibberd, a Spanish teacher at the school, noting that for many students the club serves as a primer for high school theater. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We try to keep as many as possible,â&#x20AC;? Hibberd said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For a lot of the kids who try out, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s their first time acting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We get a lot of kids that start in sixth gr ade and keep going with it â&#x20AC;&#x201C; some of the kids go on to the Apple Valley High School theater program. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of what middle school is about â&#x20AC;&#x201C; trying ne w things and finding out w hat you like.â&#x20AC;? The drama club stages two productions each year. In the fall, Valley students did â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Adventures of Tom Sawyer,â&#x20AC;? and last spring staged â&#x20AC;&#x153;Annie Jr.â&#x20AC;? For the students, the club helps build skills tha t extend beyond the theater. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great way to spend your time after school, â&#x20AC;?

said seventh-grader Jacob Swanstrom, whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s participated in all f our drama club plays since he began attending Valley Middle School. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You learn a lot a bout speech, and to be more confident.â&#x20AC;? School District 196 helps cover the cost of the set and directorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; salaries, but â&#x20AC;&#x153;essentially the r est is us fundr aising,â&#x20AC;? Hibberd said. A fundraiser was held March 30 at Panda Express in Apple Valley, with the restaurant donating a portion of its sales to the drama club. Concessions sold during perf ormances also help cover costs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Beauty and the Beastâ&#x20AC;? will be pr esented at 7 p .m. April 14-15 and 2 p .m. April 16 at the school.

Guest Columnist We can help keep teens safe from sexual assault by Ann Sheridan SPECIAL TO THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

All traces lost. Where did she go? So innocent and free. The world has consumed her. She has bought into their lies. Searching for love and happiness, She has been beaten and broken. There are too many defeats. Life weighs heavily on her shoulders. She’s hanging on by just a thread. He slithered upon her. Temptation engulfs her. She danced with the devil. He seduced her with his darkness. His words are laced with lies. The poison burns her throat. Pleasure in the shadows. What has she done? All innocence lost. Where did she go? Where is her dignity? Where is her self-worth? Snatched away from her in the night. He delights in what he has stolen. She can’t feel. Disappointment, hurt, fear, anger. The tears won’t come. Where did she go? All traces lost.

This poem w as recently written b y a 17-year-old victim of sexual assault, who graciously allowed me to shar e it with you. It is heartwrenching in its sincerity and desperation, and it serv es as an honest glimpse into the emotional, mental and physical struggles of a teen affected by sexual violence. But my teenager isn’t at risk of sexual assault. Studies say that one in f our girls and one in six bo ys will have been sexually abused by the time they’re 18. P erhaps more troubling is tha t the perpetr ator is almost always somebody the victim knows – a boyfriend, a family member. I can’t think of the last time I worked with a victim w ho was assaulted by a stranger. What we see most of the time with teens is that they went to a party, started drinking and things w ent a little too far . She said “no” but because they w ere drinking and flirting, the teena ge boy thinks that she w ants to have sex, even though she’s saying “no.”

My teenager doesn’t drink, so I don’t have to worry about her. Sexual assault doesn ’t always involve alcohol and it’s not always at parties. Sometimes it’s in a car, or after school at a parents’ home when they’re away. There is no typical victim. They come from every income level, every race. They have parents who are home all the time and par ents who are not home v ery often. They’re active in sports or they’re interested in acting or m usic. It can happen to any teenager, at any time of the day. What can I do to help pr event sexual assault? There needs to be mor e education in schools , especially with boys, around “What does ‘no’ mean?” and how alcohol can lead to poor decisions. Teenage girls need to mak e “no” very clear. Just because they’re flirting with boys or kissing them, tha t doesn’t automatically mean they want to have sex. A lot of parents don’t want their kids to talk a bout this, because of course their kids ar en’t having sex. People don’t believe it exists in their house . But open

communication is key. Talk about different situations: “If you’re at a party and y ou feel unsafe, even if you’ve been drinking, y ou can count on me to pick you up.” You don’t have to say that drinking is okay, but what’s worse – drinking or sexual assault? How will I know if my teenager has been sexually abused? For girls who have been victimized, it’s amazing w hat they go through. They might run a way. They might alienate their friends. Their grades will go do wn, because the assault consumes e very minute of their day, and for them to get through school is difficult. All the time , we see victims blaming themselves. They’ll come in to join a support gr oup and they’re still trying to figur e out if they’re to b lame or not. Did I wear clothes that were too revealing? Did I come on too str ong? They’re questioning a lot of what they did, w hen really it’s the offender’s fault. How can I support my teenager if I suspect he or she has been a victim? Encourage them to get counseling. Check out support groups,

such as those w e offer at 360 Communities. Talk to them about reporting the incident. A lot of teenagers don’t want to report this because they’re drinking w hen it happens. But almost all the time , police officers could car e less about the alcohol. Above all, don’t pressure your child. Giving him or her the power to decide what they want to do, whether or not to r eport the incident, is huge.

Letters Integration funding must go To the editor: In your article concerning the disa greement over the value of the sta te’s school integration program you asked Scott Thomas , the integration and equity coordinator for District 196, for his opinion a bout the value of the program. Thomas says, “Integration has been extremely successful in our district.” Asking the dir ector of a government bureaucracy whose livelihood depends on the contin ued funding of his program if he thinks the program is important is like asking your barber if he thinks you need a haircut. More than five years ago the state auditor determined that the integr ation program has no defined goals and no process for evaluating results, and that there is little oversight on spending. The state has w asted almost a half billion dollars on this pr ogram for which no one can pr ovide data to measure its ef fectiveness. It is time for it to go. Kudos are due to R ep. Pat Garofalo for having the courage to stand up against the special inter est groups and bury this program. Moving funding fr om this program into areas that provide more measurable educational outcomes can provide better education to students from poor families and might also pr ovide alternative meaningful employment for the lik es of Thomas.

I understand not using general fund money . And we shouldn’t; it can be done without it. A r acino could help. The sta te could also partner with the Vikings on user fees. This means I have a choice to buy a ticket, jersey, etc., knowing that money will support the stadium. If I didn ’t support a ne w (not just Vikings) stadium I wouldn’t partake. A new stadium w ould help stimulate our economy and contin ue to mak e the Twin Cities an enjo yable place to r aise a family.

Caring for the vulnerable is humane To the editor: An opinion piece b y the congressional representative for the south metr o area recently deplored the intrusion of government into the issue of medical care by Congress last y ear. He applauded the R epublicans in the U .S. House of Representatives who voted to repeal it. The issue of health car e may be something tha t should be bey ond politics, and its hefty cost has involved government for decades now. There are people in our society w ho

are vulnerable, due to a ge, medical condition, income or other reason; who suffer much  from lack of attention, timely treatment and preventative care. These people definitely deserve some public resources in preserving their a bility to work and pr eserve their families’ stability. Friends have children with conditions like autism, Asperger’s syndrome, or even more debilitating diseases. The young people are unable to cope with some of the difficulties of life faced by more able-bodied people like you and me. They deserve the help we can extend them to let them live and contrib ute to society in the ways they can. In cases where their conditions may be conta gious, public health should r equire that we act to take care of them. To me it’ s disgusting to make the cases of these people fodder for political debate. Humane v alues demand that we act in support of our go vernment in its work to car e for these people. In m y opinion the people who are working on behalf of those who are vulnerable are doing truly valuable work. I should kno w as I am one of those people w ho care for the most vulnerable American citizens. I ha ve been doing it f or 30 y ears, starting at the young age of 18. I have seen the growth in care and compassion for the most vulnerable since 1981. If we allow the congr essman to r epeal the health care reform bill then we are no better than he is.  JULIE SWANSON Eagan

Rosemount wrong to cut cat service I strongly disagree with the City Council’ s March 15 decision to no longer prohibit cats from roaming loose in the streets of Rose-

mount. I think it’s inhumane to leave stray and runaway cats in the cold, especiall y when the temperatures are freezing outside. Before this City Council decision, stray cats found in the str eet would be brought to Shamr ock Animal Hospital where they would get medical help , all necessary care and a chance to get adopted. The staff of Shamrock Animal Hospital w ould donate their time to the rescued animals f or the pur pose of helping animals , not for financial reimbursement. If the animal w as injured, they would perform a surgery to fix the pr oblem and save the animal’s life. I agree with Dr. Hansen, who worries that “few people will be willing to bring strays to shelters , which are several miles a way.” I also agree “that the str ay cat population will gr ow overtime, since unclaimed impounded animals w ere spayed and neutered.” Even though ther e is a demand for cutting spending, I think it’ s the wr ong place to cut the service, and it’s a big mistak e that the City Council made.

Recipients of Lakeview Bankâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2011 Legacy Award were honored Thursday, April 7, at the fifth ann ual Legacy Award event held at the bank. Each year, Lakeview Bank recognizes three individuals from the community â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a high school senior (Jessica Hernandez fr om Apple Valley), a citiz en volunteer (Tony and Dorothy Brama from Lakeville), and a b usiness owner or manager (Nancy Quinnell of Hollstadt & Associates of Burnsville) w ho do outstanding w ork and embrace its cor e values. Each of the r ecipients are awarded $1,000 for either a charity of their choice or as a scholarship f or the high school senior recipient. Jessica Hernandez High School Senior Legacy Award A senior a t Apple Valley High School, Hernandez epitomizes the v alues that the Legacy Award was originally created to recognize in high school seniors. Her parents moved to the United States from Morelos, Mexico, 20 years ago to ensure that their childr en were afforded opportunities they were not. Hernandez has both taken advantage of, and is grateful for, those opportunities. She has participa ted in her high schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s college prep program, Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) for four years, where she leads the student leadership gr oup and organizes community service projects. In her senior year, she achieved the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Aâ&#x20AC;? honor r oll and w as named Apple Valley High School student of the month. She also pa ys it f orward by assisting in teaching sixth-grade catechism at Church of the Risen Savior, where she also is a reader at Sunday mass and provides interpretation for the churchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hispanic worship services in ad dition to participating in the cultural dance group. Upon graduation, Hernandez will a ttend either North Dakota State University or Io wa State to study architecture. Wherever her pr ofessional career leads, it will be guided b y a self less desire to serv e others, as in Hernandezâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s words, â&#x20AC;&#x153;giving back is a w ay of life in m y community. I w onâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t forget that, because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; s how we all make the world a better place for everyone.â&#x20AC;? Nancy Quinnell Business Owner Legacy Award That Nancy Quinnell can juggle a demanding career as senior vice president of operations at Burnsvillebased Hollstadt & Associates with serving others is a testament to both her integrity and stamina.

There were no Reports. There was no Old Business.

Superintendent Berenz presented the budget adjustment recommendations totaling $8,505,198 in r eductions and r evenue increases for 2011-12 (Exhibit E), the thir d year of adjustments. She noted the School Board, after reviewing budget assumptions and factors at its January r etreat, directed the administration to develop recommendations based upon a 2.5 to 5 per cent range of reduction in state education funding. The administration settled on a 3.5 per cent assumption for state funding cuts which would require budget adjustments of $8.5 million for next year. The $8.5 million of adjustments was tempered to $3.4 million by the use of $5 million of one-time federal education jobs funding. She estimated an additional 81 jobs may have had to be eliminated if the $5 million of one-time funds had not been available. The recommendations include: â&#x20AC;˘ Teacher reductions of 27.28 FTEs (full-time equivalency) totaling $1,762,435; â&#x20AC;˘ School and districtwide administrative r eductions of 8.88 FTEs totaling $601,049; â&#x20AC;˘ Support staff reduction of 11.485 FTEs totaling $403,529; and â&#x20AC;˘ Other reductions to the general fund wer e in the areas of band coordinator stipends, a cost-neutral figure skating program, professional development, a contract for energy savings pr ogram, substitute teacher pay and transportation services which total another $589,153. Berenz noted there were two changes this year for transportation. The first being a r eduction in service which increases the eligible service distance from one-half mile to 1 mile and further for elementary students and fr om 1 mile to 1.5 miles and further for middle school and high school students. She noted students who live inside the 1 or 1.5 mile distances now have the fee-for -service option that was implemented last. Other transportation changes include a r eduction to the reimbursement for students attending non-public schools, a small attendance-area change the board approved last year to increase efficiencies and elimination of activity bus service for students in special education. State law that requires school districts to pr ovide transportation for students who live mor e than two miles from school but doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; t reimburse school districts for better service. She noted moving our service out to two miles would save approximately $2.7 million. On March 8 and 9, Ber enz reported the Budget Advisory Council facilitated focus groups which included par ents, employees and community members. Ber enz noted overall that participants wer e supportive of the adjustments, wer e appreciative that transportation cuts were not made until now and were glad to see that ther e will be no increase to the classr oom ratio next year . Participants acknowledged the r educed electives for middle school students and were supportive of the change to the middle school structure that allows students mor e time in the core classes. Depending on what happens this legislative session with state education funding, Berenz said there may be a need for at least $5 million in cuts for the 2012-13 school year. The School Board is scheduled to take action on the recommendations at its March 28 board meeting. Director of Human Resour ces Tom Pederstuen presented the 2011-12 Staf fing Allocation Guidelines (Exhibit F-Revised). The guidelines r eflect the pr oposed 201112 budget adjustment r ecommendations that Superintendent Ber enz just pr esented. There are also a few minor modifications to changes made last year. The School Board is scheduled to take action on the guidelines at its Mar ch 28 board meeting.

Integration and Educational Equity Coor dinator Scott Thomas asked the boar d to approve a thr ee-year Integration and Educational Equity Plan (Exhibit G-Revised) for 2011-14 and the 2011-12 budget. He pr ovided background information and noted the original integration plan was developed in 2004 after the state notified the district that two of its elementary schools (Cedar Park and Glacier Hills) wer e â&#x20AC;&#x153;racially isolatedâ&#x20AC;? as defined by the state Desegr egation Rule, meaning they had minority enr ollments that were 20 per centage points higher than the district average. Thomas highlighted an excerpt from the curr ent Minnesota Desegr egation Rule which requires â&#x20AC;&#x153;students to have increased, sustained, interracial contacts and improved educational opportunities and outcomes designed to close the academic achievement gapâ&#x20AC;Śthrough classroom experiences, staff initiatives and other educationally related programs.â&#x20AC;? Thomas said the plan development included an exter nal evaluation in December 2010 and r econvening of a Community Collaboration Council (CCC) which consisted of 19 district staf f and residents. The council focused on incr easing achievement and opportunity for all students, pr omoting sustained interracial contact though an academic focus; pr omoting school choice for families, and improving educational outcomes that help meet the district mission. Thomas shared the pr ogress the district has seen since the initial plan, including startup of the districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; s three elementary magnet schools; the Y oung Scholars and AVID programs aimed at traditionally underrepresented groups of students; extensive professional development; befor e- and after-school programs, and incr eased efforts to attract and r etain diverse staff members. He told how these ef forts have worked to reduce minority enrollment at Glacier Hills to the point where it is no longer defined as racially isolated, and at Cedar Park, where the percentage of students of color has begun to decline while the district average continues to increase. In addition to existing components, the goals and objectives now contain components identified by measur es of pr ogress, Young Scholars par ent representation on the Gifted and T alented Advisory Council and partnership with local agencies to address housing needs. Thomas r eviewed the seven goals in the 2011-14 Integration and Educational Equity Plan and shar ed objectives for each of the following goals: 1. Increase racial balance within the district; 2. Ensure that all students at Cedar Park Elementary STEM School experience a learning environment that supports academic growth; 3. Provide additional opportunities for increased interracial contact and academic growth; 4. Support efforts of the district to eliminate racial predictability and disporportionality of student achievement; 5. Recruit and r etain diverse teaching staf f, support staff and administrators; 6. Provide system-wide leadership and coordination for the effective implementation of the Integration and Educational Equity Plan; and 7. Provide all students and families equitable access to educational opportunities. The Integration and Educational Equity Plan and 2011-12 budget of mor e than $4 million will be submitted to the Minnesota Department of Education for approval. If approved, the new plan will take ef fect July 1 and will be implemented in schools at the start of the 2011-12 school year. Board members commented on the pr oposed plan. It was noted the plan is reviewed annually and updated as needed, the thr ee magnet schools have been r ecognized with national awards and the communityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; s perception of Cedar Park has been enhanced. Motion by Sampers, seconded by Duchscher and carried, with seven members voting in favor, no members voting in opposition and no members abstaining, to approve the 2011-14 Integration and Educational Equity Plan and the budget for the 2012 fiscal year. Berenz paid tribute to 1997 Rosemount High School graduate Andrew Wilfahrt, who died a her o on February 27, 2011 outside Kandahar, Afghanistan while on foot patrol. Motion by Duchscher , seconded by Schutte and carried, with seven members voting in favor , no members voting in opposition and no members abstaining, to adjourn the meeting at 7:30 p.m. 2561331 4/8/11

Young Blaze Wildcats riled ready to burn up for 2011 by Andy Rogers

THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

Youth doesn’t automatically equal r ebuilding especially in Burnsville’s case. The Blaze boys track and field team is going to r ely on several underclassmen this season to get their points. “Although we are young we are a v ery hard working group who seem to get better by the week,” coach John Shelden said. “W e hope to compete for the confer ence and section titles.” The Blaze will have a couple top-le vel athletes with state in mind come J une. Mike Bolland was third in the 800-meter run last season and Cole O’Brien is one of the top distance runners in the sta te after taking second in the state cross country meet in the fall. The Blaze have a health y stock of distance runners , hurdlers and relays as well. Andrew Herkendhoff, and Jordan Huus plan on clearing all the hur dles while Abdul Salan and Erik Lindstr om will run with O’Brien in the distance events. Dalton McDermott, Cory Mogren and Dan Nguyen will take on an all-ar ound athlete role in both field and tr ack events.

Vivian Hett, Marissa Lane and J ane Koch will go farther in the one and two mile runs with senior captain Lisa Nelson. Newcomer Teeka Thompson has alr eady turned some heads with her shot putting. She tossed one 35 feet, 11.25 inches, with is thir d-best in Burnsville history. “She shows a lot of promise for a first-y ear thrower,” Fettig said. But the inexperience might sting in some of the more technical events. “We are young and don ’t have a lot of experience with baton exchanges and r elays,” Fettig said. “Most of the hurdlers are new but have a lot of promise to de velop in the middle to late season.” Pole vaulting has plenty of numbers, but several are new. “Hopefully senior Thanh Nguyen can lead them to high heights sooner rather than later,” Fettig said. High jump will also have a few voids as well with Burnsville school-record holder Kate Griffin out f or the season with an injury.

Lightning leaders in jumping, sprinting Lundin comes home by Andy Rogers THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

and field program is off to a quick start finishing third in a strong field a t the Uni versity of Minnesota Indoor meet on April 2. The sprint medley team of Claire Elliot, Ale x Beckman, Paris Sanders and Anne F erguson won and Beckman also won the triple jump. Beckman is the defending state champion in the triple jump. Beckman and Sanders were part of the 2009 sta te championship 4x100-meter relay. Unfortunately, Beckman’s sister, Amanda, a key member of the sprint relay and one of the top long jumpers in the state, is out after suf fering a serious knee injury during the basketball season. A few other key returning athletes got of f to pr omising starts at the indoor meet. Melita Ware was fifth in hur dles and third in long jump. Erica Bestule was third-fastest in the 800, Lindsay Koplitz got to sixth in the 400, and Laur en Franchino and Erica Anders tied for fifth in the high jump.

Several of Eastview’s track and field a thletes who helped the Lightning finish ninth a t state last season are back. Most of their points came off the calves of their jumping class where Khalil Jordan (fifth in triple jump) and Frank Veldman (third in the high jump , second in triple) got Eastvie w most of the way to ninth. Although, the senior class list isn’t as thick as years past. “We have strong numbers in our ninth, 10th and 11th grade classes,” head coach Troy Swanson said. “W ith these numbers they ar e also hard workers and dedicated to the program.” Erik Rosvold is another contender as the team’ s top distance runner. With a young team, Swanson said they’re going to r ely on sweat and dedication to pull them through the season. “Hard work will pa y off,” Swanson said. “Our seniors will step up and lead by example both on and of f the track. Our strength is our work ethic Andy Rogers is at and our numbers.” andy.rogers@ecm-inc.com.

Determining the value of their service or product is advised by this publication. In order to avoid misunderstandings, some advertisers do not offer employment but rather supply the readers with manuals, directories and other materials designed to help their clients establish mail order selling and other businesses at home. 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. All funds are based in US dollars. 800 numbers may or may not reach Canada.
