A decade later, memories of 9/11 remain fresh for local officials Some Dakota County clergy, firefighters provided relief at Ground Zero by Laura Adelmann THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

After the second plane exploded into the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001, then-Dakota County Commissioner Mike Turner grimaced and said it was the start of World War III. County commissioners, staff and others had gathered around a television outside an Apple Valley conference room where they were meeting, staring somberly in disbelief as America was attacked on her own soil. National news anchors changed initial reports that a plane may have accidentally crashed into the North Trade Center Tower, the first struck, and began reporting America was under attack. Shattering glass, explosions, flames, screams, panic, sirens, bodies, horror and collapse all played out for the world to witness. “My blood ran cold,” said Dakota County Sheriff Dave Bellows, who at the time was chief deputy and

Uponor sued for alleged toxic pipes by Jessica Harper THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

The gymnasium roof collapse at Apple Valley’s Heritage Lutheran Church in February temporarily rendered the entire church building unusable. Seven months later, the church is marking the completion of its new gymnasium with a dedication service this Sunday.

A class action lawsuit was filed this week against Uponor Inc. in Apple Valley for allegedly selling plastic drinking water pipes that contained high levels of toxins. The suit filed by Larson King alleges that Uponor and Weil-McLain – another heating and cooling manufacturer – sold plumbing equipment under the trade names Multicor and AlumiPex for drinking water systems despite knowing they contained “high levels of toxins.” “These systems should never have been sold,” said Shawn Raiter of Larson King. Larson King is seeking punitive damages on behalf of several homeowners who purchased the pipes. The suit alleges that Uponor obtained approval to use the pipes in drinking systems through a “bait and switch” scheme. According to court documents, the company allegedly sent “specifically produced” pipe samples to the National Sanitation Foundation – a nonprofit, nongovernmental organization that develops safety and public health standards for various industries. The company then allegedly manufactured pipes that did not meet the NSF’s standards. The NSF made an unannounced visit to one of Uponor’s manufacturing facilities in Germany and tested a pipe from the production line. The suit alleges that the pipe failed NSF’s toxicity testing because it emitted unacceptable levels of chemicals the organization deems toxic and potentially dangerous to humans. NSF subsequently removed its approval for the pipes to be used in drinking water systems. “Uponor Inc. – which is here in the United States – denies involvement in the sale and distribution of the subject MLC pipe,” said Ingrid Mattson, spokesperson for Uponor in Apple Valley. “Uponor Inc. will move to dismiss all the claims in the complaint.”

Sept. 11. While workers were still putting the finishing touches on the gym this week, major work is complete and the church had occupancy of the gym last Thursday, according to church staff. It’s a world of difference from the disaster zone that was the church gymnasium last February. The collapse occurred around 12:30 a.m. Feb. 4 when the building was unoccupied, and no one was injured. The gymnasium, built in 2009 as an addition to the church, had been showing structural defects, including cracks in the

Average property nets tax decrease for 2012 City portion of property taxes projected to decline by about $38 for average home by Tad Johnson THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

As expected, the Rosemount City Council on Sept. 6 adopted its preliminary 2012 budget and levy, which should result in a tax decrease in the city portion of property taxes for the average value home.

The city estimates a $38 decrease from payable 2011 to 2012 for the average value home ($201,600) for its portion of the tax pie – School District 196 and Dakota County are the other major slices. “This is certainly good for local taxpayers,� City

Administrator Dwight Johnson said during Tuesday’s regular meeting. “It’s good news that we are cutting taxes for the average home,� said Mayor Bill Droste, who credited the work of city staff since the budget process started in March.

 () "  *# $+ & "# $$

ďż˝ 

While this year’s average value reduction amounts to about a dinner for two, Johnson pointed out that the reduction on the example home since 2008 is $204 – enough for about five nights out. In this economy, it’s likely families aren’t spending all that savings on dining, but rather looking to pay off some of their debt. That’s what the city of Rosemount did with a $225,842 surplus from 2010. The buy-down of the debt contributed to its ability to reduce its operating levy by about 6 percent next year. The operating levy, which has a direct affect on property taxes, was reduced in large part by an accounting change after the Market Value Homestead Credit program was repealed this year.

Apple Valley man suffers serious injury in crash

A 22-year-old Apple Valley man was listed in critical condition after he suffered serious injury in a one-vehicle rollover crash at about 9:30 p.m. Sept. 1. Ivan P. Vezikov was driving a 2005 BMW M3 at a high rate of speed, according to the State Patrol, southbound on Highway 169 near 13th Avenue in Plymouth when he lost control of the vehicle, hit a guardrail to the right and was ejected from the vehicle into the center wall. News reports say witnesses reported the vehicle was traveling at about 100 mph at the time of the crash. Road conditions on the two-lane divided highway at the time of the crash were dry, according to the State Patrol.

The increased cost of fuel has driven up that line item for departments that lean on vehicles for operations (especially police and public works). The city hasn’t filled two vacated positions and has found savings in everything from printing costs and energy spending by installing new boilers in the Steeple Center. Between now and the December adoption of the final budget, the council can only reduce the levy amount.

Met Council says it lacks funds for Cedar Avenue BRT buses Recent budget adjustments cited as cause by Aaron Vehling THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

As construction continues in Apple Valley and Lakeville toward a fall 2012 opening of the $112 million Cedar Avenue bus rapid transit line, it appears there may be trouble getting buses. Metropolitan Council Regional Administrator Pat Born, citing $52 million in that organization’s recent budget reductions, wrote to Dakota County Regional Railroad Authority Chair Will Branning that “the (Met) Council will be making some permanent service adjustments to balance the budget.� “This means that the Council does not have funding available to expand services� in the 2012-2013 biennium, Born wrote. After more than a decade of work, and the construction finally coming to fruition this year, it comes down to $1 million, which is the Met Council’s share of the Cedar Avenue line’s $2 million subsidy. The Counties Transit Improvement Board (CTIB), which governs how a quarter-cent sales tax is spent on transit, would cover the rest. Met Council spokesperson Meredith Salsbery said the Council is “not yet assuming a delay of service� on Cedar.

The Council was “just being prudent� about the unresolved funding gap,� Salsbery said. There were plans to purchase buses now for the new station-to-station service along Cedar, which will open in 2012. It can take more than a year to receive the special light rail-style buses once they are ordered. The Minnesota Valley Transit Authority (MVTA) will operate the service, which the Met Council and Dakota County are working on jointly to fund and construct. Robin Selvig, MVTA spokesperson, said meetings are ongoing to address the funding. Selvig said the MVTA is still working on the stationto-station environmental assessment. The organization is also working on a finding of no significant impact (FONSI) . “Nothing could happen in terms of ordering buses until all this stuff got improved and finalized,� she said. Salsbery emphasized that the meetings to discuss the funding gap will occur in the coming weeks and not months. The Met Council and Dakota County will meet in late September to look at funding options, said county engineer/transportation director Mark Krebsbach,

who is leading the BRT project. Current construction on the bus shoulder along Cedar Avenue will continue, he said. “Those will be utilized by express buses,� Krebsbach said. So even without BRTstyle buses, those shoulders will still get plenty of use, he added. Construction geared toward station-to-station BRT service is slated to start early next year, Krebsbach said. But while isolating funding by then may be feasible, there still is a need to solve this sooner than later. “We need to get out in front of the vehicles because of the delivery time (for newly ordered buses),� he said. As for those funding options, Krebsbach said at this point “anything is on the table. There are no preferred or identified solutions yet. We’re looking at any potential source.� In his letter to Branning, Born wrote that for the Met Council to come up with the $1 million right now, the organization would have to cut existing services by $1 million per year: “Such action would be inconsistent with our priority of preserving existing transit services.� Aaron Vehling is at aaron.vehling@ecm-inc.com and www. facebook.com/thisweeklive.

Opinion Thisweek Columnist

An awful day that scared and changed us all Larry Werner THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

Autumn is my favorite time of year. It feels so good when summer’s heat and humidity give way to the kind of sunny, dry days we’ve been enjoying this past week. I recall Sept. 11, 2001, as one of those beautiful fall days that I began in my condo just north of downtown Lakeville. By the time I left home that day, the weather seemed like a cruel joke that contrasted with the horrible reality I had watched on television and revisited in replays of the terrorist attacks. Having heard a radio report about the first terrorist-flown plane hitting the World Trade Center, I turned on the TV in time to watch, along with millions of other viewers, the second tower struck, and the rest of my day was haunted by that image and the fears that preoccupied us all. On today’s front page, Laura Adelmann, one of our veteran

reporters, writes about what local leaders remember about that day and the days that followed 9/11. She writes about the fear and the anger, but also about the good works of Dakota County people who, like most of us, will always remember where we were and will never be quite the same because of that day. I remember leaving my home to check in at a golf shop my wife and I owned on Lakeville’s main street, Holyoke Avenue. Our store manager hadn’t heard about the attacks. While telling him the shocking news, my daughter called from her workplace in St. Louis Park. Thinking I was at my office in downtown Minneapolis, she expressed concern that planes might be crashing into buildings there. After assuring her I was safe, I went to a meeting of the Downtown Lakeville Business Association in the Wells Fargo bank building. There, Christine Mondus, the DLBA’s executive director, told us

she had just heard from her husband, a Northwest Airlines pilot, that the rumor among pilots was that terrorists had hijacked many more planes than the four that had crashed, and those planes were going to be hitting other targets. Later in the day, I stopped in at Heritage Links Golf Club, the family business built on the farm near Lakeville where my wife and her siblings had grown up. Our golf pro told me that the son of a regular customer was on the plane that crashed in Pennsylvania. That customer was Tom Burnett Sr., whose son, Tom Jr., fought the terrorists who apparently had hoped to crash that plane into the Capitol or the White House. And then there was that evening at home with Ann and our son, Zack, who was 10 at the time. We dealt with the conflict so many of us remember of not being able to turn off the television and not wanting to see, or let our children see, another rerun of the planes crashing and people running through the streets of New York.

Letters

I must confess that during the days that followed, I had great difficulty feeling anything but anger toward those who had done this to us. That anger overwhelmed the fear and definitely crowded out feelings of tolerance and empathy for those who hated America so much they had killed thousands of us. While attending college in the 1960s, I was influenced by the antiwar and civil rights movements and the activists and songwriters who argued peace and love were the answer. In my dorm room, I played the records of the ’60s troubadours, including Peter Paul and Mary. But those peaceful thoughts were replaced on that fall day in 2001 by a desire for revenge against an enemy we still hadn’t identified. By that Sunday, my emotions were a mess. In our church, which has a strong social-justice mission, the music director led us in a Peter Paul and Mary song I had never heard until that day. Over the last 10 years, we have sung it many times in church, and

every time I hear it, I’m reminded of that week 10 years ago. And I’m reminded that while there is no way the attacks of 9/11 should go unpunished, we share this planet with people who see the world differently from the way we do. Through tears that Sunday, I felt my anger ebbing as the congregation sang “The Song of Peace,� which concludes with these lyrics: My country’s skies are bluer than the ocean And sunlight beams on clover leaf and pine But other lands have sunlight too and clover And skies are everywhere as blue as mine O hear my prayer, O God of all the nations A song of peace for their lands and for mine.

Scores are cause for concern To the editor: I read with interest the article in Thisweek about science scores in District 196 exceeding the state average. I was excited. And then I read the details. Fifty-six percent of fifthgraders and 64 percent of high school students meeting or exceeding state standards in science. Hmmm – not exactly ex-

emplary scores to celebrate. Congratulations to Glacier Hills elementary for bringing their scores up from 52 to 73 percent of fifth-grade students. If they can do it, why not the rest of the district? Could we proliferate Glacier’s “recipe for success� throughout the district? We want to keep good paying, high tech jobs in our state and have Minnesota graduates capable of filling

those jobs. Let’s set a threeyear goal of having 75 percent of fifth-grade students in our district meeting or exceeding state standards. If not now, when? We want to see all of our students reach their fullest potential. ADINA LEBOWITZ Eagan

Ten years after 9/11 we are safer, yet must win the fight by Joe Repya SPECIAL TO THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

struction because they opposed our freedoms and our way of life. I’m grateful for our young people who serve in our all-volunteer military. They come from the entire spectrum of society, are well educated and are totally committed to defeating the threat against America and Western civilization that al-Qaida and radical jihadists pose. The real heroes of this War on Terror are those who sacrificed their lives and the families who remained at home and worried every minute for the safety of their loved ones. As soldiers, we know our jobs and the risks that accompany serving in combat. We know not all soldiers will return home, yet we are willing to take on the mission to spread freedom throughout the world and protect our way of life here at home. All this begs the question: Are we safer today than before Sept. 11, 2001? Yes, we are. We are fighting a war with an enemy who hides in the shadows, attacks unarmed civilians and will use any weapon they get their hands on to destroy America. We have taken the fight to al-Qaida since 9/11, Navy Seals have killed Osama bin Laden, and we have killed or captured numerous members of al-Qaida’s top leadership. Although it has taken 10 years, we continue to hunt down and bring to justice some of these fanatics who would destroy Western civilization. Yes, our nation has made some mistakes along the way in how it conducted the war. Unfortunately, war never goes exactly as planned. This is especially true when we fight it in a “politically correct manner� while our enemy fights by no rules at all. Still, our record isn’t bad when you consider that it took 18 years to find Ted Kaczynski, the “Unabomber,� here in America. The fight must continue until fanatic organizations like al-Qaida are defeated, and terrorist nations who support and protect them like Iran and Pakistan are forced to stop. Based on our enemy’s zeal, we have no choice but to continue the fight and win!

Tuesday, Sept. 11, 2001, started as most days do. I had just left a Rotary breakfast and stopped for gas for my car. The gas station had a television on showing the fire in the first Trade Center tower in New York City. As I was paying I watched the second plane hit the second tower. I realized this was no accident and that America was under attack. My wife was about to take off from the Minneapolis airport on a business trip to Memphis, Tenn. I called her cell phone numerous times but received no answer. Once I was home my wife called and said all airplanes were grounded. I told her, for her safety, that she needed to quickly get away from the airport, that the nation was under attack and to come home immediately. By the time she arrived home she was in tears, and our lives and the lives of many were about to change forever. We watched the rest of 9/11 unfold together on television. That evening as we listened to President George W. Bush address the nation from the White House, I told Deb that I would be calling the U.S. Army the next day to volunteer to return to active duty. I had originally retired from the U.S. Army after 28 years of service in 1998 and had served in combat in Vietnam and Desert Storm. Voluntary retiree recall had occurred in every war since World War I. Within the first month after 9/11, over 12,000 retired U.S. Army veterans would volunteer to return. I was one of only 350 retirees recalled to service. Assigned to the 101st Airborne Division at Fort Campbell, Ky., in October 2004, I served as the senior liaison officer to the Multi National Corps Headquarters in Baghdad, Iraq, in 2005. I returned to Minnesota and entered retired status in September 2006. The entire experience was worth it. We learned that Americans are willing to step forward and fight for their nation in its hour of need. As a nation we learned that our shores Joe Repya is a retired lieutenant colonel in were no longer safe from attack by violent the U.S. Army and a resident of Eagan.

Benefit set for mom who suffered sudden stroke At 33, Celeste Ask is fighting to walk, talk

Doctors feared Celeste wouldn’t make it through the night, and she was in a coma for about a week. She awakened from the coma but was unable to move or talk. After weeks of slow recovery, Celeste is going through grueling physical therapy, and in July endured another major surgery to replace pieces of her skull. Since August, Celeste has returned home and is continuing in outpatient rehabilitation, said friends Jess Hauser, Alyssa Olsen and Amy Lock. “Celeste is progressing every day.

A new community group seeks to lend a helping hand to military veterans and families with loved ones serving overseas. The cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Beyond the Yellow Ribbon program is holding a kickoff meeting Sept. 19 at the Apple Valley American Legion for people interested in volunteering with the group. Beyond the Yellow Ribbon is a nationwide program that establishes community-based committees to assist military families while a family member is deployed, and to help veterans returning from service reintegrate into civilian life. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really to act as the hub of a wheel,â&#x20AC;? said Bruce Folken, chairman of the Apple Valley Yellow Ribbon committee and a veteran. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got so many groups doing things for military members, but a lot of times theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not able to get the word out. The Yellow Ribbon (group) will kind of act as the directory.â&#x20AC;? A core group of about a half-dozen local residents formed this spring to lay the groundwork for the Apple Valley Yellow Ribbon program, and people interested in serving on the steering committee are now being sought. The Apple Valley organization is seeking volunteers representing different sectors of the community â&#x20AC;&#x201C; including civic groups, the legal and medical professions, education, local government â&#x20AC;&#x201C; as it begins the 16step process to earn official Yellow Ribbon designation for Apple Valley through the Minnesota Department of Veterans Affairs. The groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s goal is to receive Yellow Ribbon status by early 2012, Folken said. The kickoff event will be at 6:30 p.m. Sept. 19, at the Legion, 14521 Granada Drive. The event will include a welcome by Mayor Mary Hamann-Roland and an overview of the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Yellow Ribbon Recognition Program by Annette Kuyper. For more information about Beyond the Yellow Ribbon, visit www.beyondtheyellowribbon.org. Andrew Miller is at andrew. miller@ecm-inc.com.

Local technical college earns top review for re-accreditation by Tad Johnson THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

Instead of handing out grades, Dakota County Technical College instructors and staff recently found themselves on the other side of a report card. The result was the equivalent of an A-plus from the Higher Learning Commission â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the regional accrediting group that evaluates collegesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; fulfillment of their missions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We worked really, really hard for this,â&#x20AC;? said Kelly Murtaugh, vice president of academic and student

affairs and co-chair of the DCTC Self-Study Committee. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We feel very good about what we were able to assemble about what we have done.â&#x20AC;? The college was re-accredited without conditions, which means the commissionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s four evaluators did not have any significant recommendations for improvements that require a followup visit or report. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Congratulations to everyone at DCTC involved in composing the self-study and preparing for the HLC consultant-evaluators team

visit,â&#x20AC;? said President Ron Thomas, who was informed of HLCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Institutional Actions Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s positive vote for accreditation by letter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is the news we have been waiting to receive.â&#x20AC;? Prospective students of the college and employers considering hiring graduates can have confidence that the college has fulfilled five criteria with regard to: â&#x20AC;˘ mission and integrity, â&#x20AC;˘ planning for the future, â&#x20AC;˘ student learning and effective teaching, â&#x20AC;˘ acquisition, discovery and application of knowl-

edge, and â&#x20AC;˘ engagement and service. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good thing to do for a number of reasons other than it is required,â&#x20AC;? Murtaugh said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is a way to validate to the external world that there are some quality checks in place.â&#x20AC;? Another important aspect of accreditation is that the college remains eligible for a wide range of grant funding and its students can access financial aid. Murtaugh said the evaluators noted in their conversations with students, staff, faculty and community

members that there was a strong sense of pride and ownership in student success. They also praised the collegeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Customized Training Divisionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ability to obtain grants to assist local business and industry in conducting training for current and prospective employees. Evaluators gave positive comments to the collegeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s demonstrated evidence of studentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; increased proficiency and knowledge in their areas of study after completing coursework. Murtaugh said areas in

which the college will seek improvement are the way it assesses its programs and how it connects with its alumni. The collegeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Statement of Affiliations Status and the Organizational Profile were posted on the HLC website on Tuesday, Sept. 6. The commissionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s positive evaluation means the college wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to undergo the required two-year self-study and external evaluation until 2020-21.

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 is illegal to request any money before delivering its service.

This Friday night’s football games feature several long time rivals, although the games have been one-sided in recent years. Burnsville hasn’t beaten Rosemount since 2006, which is the same year Apple Valley last defeated Lakeville North. Eastview has had more success against Lakeville South lately with a 3-2 overall advantage. Eastview’s last win against Lakeville South was in 2008. The teams didn’t play last year. Here’s a glance at Friday night’s games:

where they had more than 100 yards passing.

Lakeville South at Eastview Eastview is coming off one of its more disappointing games in recent memory. The Lightning have lost games before, but they haven’t given up more than 40 points since losing to Wayzata at the state tournament in 2005. Lakeville South may not be the cure for what ails the Lightning defense. The Cougars put up nearly 400 yards and 35 points against Eagan in the season opener.

Burnsville at Rosemount Lakeville North at Last week, Burnsville Apple Valley couldn’t quite hold on against Bloomington Jefferson in a 20-18 loss. The Blaze took a 12-0 lead into the third quarter, but a few mistakes doomed the Blaze. They will have their hands full on Friday against last year’s state runner-up – Rosemount. The Irish kicked off the season with a 28-6 win against Bloomington Kennedy. Quarterback Nate LeMoine was the leading rusher with 15 carries for 57 yards and was 9-for-14 passing for 107 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions. The Irish looked to the air more than usual. Last season, the Irish had just two games

After netting three wins in the past two seasons, the Eagles were hoping to change course this fall. The Eagles lost to Hopkins 47-9 in the season opener on Sept. 1. It was the team’s largest margin of defeat since October 2009 when they lost 47-0 to Lakeville South. The team will be tested when the Panthers come to town Friday. The Eagles will have a little extra motivation with members of the 1986 state football champion alumni being honored prior to the game. Photo by Rick Orndorf

side hitter Megan Jacobs and Katie Duff have made a big jumps from last year. “(We have) strong talent with a mix of returning seniors and promising underclassmen,” coach Smokey Vitek said. Their goal is to break into the top half of the South Suburban Conference. That may not seem like a lofty goal, but with four teams ranked in the top 10, the Irish will need to pull off some upsets.

THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

Burnsville is one of several teams in the south metro that has been in the Minnesota volleyball spotlight in the past decade. But as the past year has proven, it’s tough to stay there. A lot has changed in the 22 months since the Burnsville volleyball team finished third at the Class AAA state tournament. The team’s star player from 2009, Tori Dixon, is currently the second-leading kill leader for the Minnesota Gophers. Last season the girls took a hit going 14-15 overall, losing in the second round of the Section 3AAA tournament to Eastview. It seems like just yesterday for defensive specialist Camille Benson, one of the only two remaining players (Alli Butler is the other) from the state qualifier. “I’ll never forget it,” Benson said. “I’d like to say it was like yesterday, but it was a really long time ago now. I’d like to get there again.” Just getting to the state tournament is like winning the lottery. Section 3AAA is traditionally loaded with top teams such as Apple Valley, Eagan, Lakeville North, and Eastview – all have played in the state final in the past 15 years. “I think if we work hard enough we have the talent to beat one of those really tough opponents,” Benson said. “All the best teams are trying to get a spot. If we find our desire for it, we have a shot.” Several younger players have blossomed in the past year including sophomores Lauren Randall, Kaycie Hagen and Alyssa Muelken. “They’ve improved a lot,” Benson said. “Their confidence is getting much

It’s impossible to be completely happy after a tie game, but that’s soccer. In a rematch of last year’s Class AA state semifinal game, Lakeville North and Apple Valley came to a 0-0 tie after 90 minutes of play. While it was disappointing for both teams, they both could pull off positives from the experience. In the 2010 Class AA state tournament, Apple Valley won the semifinal game against Lakeville North 2-1 last November and went on to win the state title. The game was as close a match as any team had given the Eagles during their two-season undefeated streak. “We hoped we could come out with a victory after what happened last year,” Lakeville North coach Pete Tyma said. “But (Apple Valley) always reloads. We knew that. They’re always going to be tough. “We had opportunities to win and they had their chances. It would have been fun to win, but at the same time this is Apple Valley.” Lakeville North is the last South Suburban Conference team to defeat Apple Valley, which happened back in 2007. “This was a big game for us,” Lakeville North defensemen Colten Enderson said. “We weren’t completely ready. We’re dissapointed, but we could see them again.” Last year’s Eagles team was dominated by seniors, meaning almost no one is back. Connor Flanagan and Derek Smith, who watched from the sidelines, have now taken on the leadership roles. The team’s 48-game winning streak came to an end on Aug. 29 in a 2-1 loss to Holy Family Catholic. “It was going to happen some day,” Apple Valley head coach Chuck Scanlon said. “We didn’t have the refinement we needed. It takes a while to develop. It doesn’t happen overnight. “There was going to be a time where we had to start over and this is it.” They still plan on winning as many games as possible and going back to state. What the Eagles lack in varsity experience, they make up for in pride and determination. “We’re getting better every day,” Scanlon said. “We’re finding the right combinations and getting a feel for the attack. We’re excited. We just have to have a little more confidence and work together a little more.” Lakeville North hasn’t lost a game yet, but the players know there’s a long way to go before they can confidently feel they can return to state. “I think the guys have the mentality we need,” Tyma said. “We have plenty of time to get this straightened out. We’re just trying to stay healthy and get into a groove. We learned the section tournament is a whole different beast. You use the regular season to get better.”

The Lightning got their first victory of the season on Tuesday beating East Ridge 17-25, 25-10, 25-23, 19-25, 15-10 breaking a two-match losing streak. The team opened the season losing to No. 4 Shakopee and No. 3 Wayzata. “I am always looking to start our season with tough opponents to see what we have to work with on our side and what we have to work on to improve,” coach Becky Egan said. “If we play ‘gimme’ opponents we wouldn’t be able to get a feel for our needs moving into our conference season.” During those three tough matches, Egan discovered her team is athletic and can make adjustments. “We need to simply learn more about the game and be able to create on the fly without it being dictated by the coaching staff,” Egan said. Lindsey Ryan, Miquel Green and Kara Cousins lead a young team. Eastview will join Burnsville in Marshall this weekend for the Southwest Minnesota Challenge. “As long as we go into a match fighting like heck, Rogers is at we’ll be successful this sea- Andy andy.rogers@ecm-inc.com. son,” Egan said.

Apple Valley Mayor Mary Hamann-Roland said she bowed out of a meeting with a service organization after witnessing on television the orange fireball that was United Flight 175 envelope and eventually collapse the South Tower. She contacted her family, then spent the day at the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s emergency headquarters, the Apple Valley Police Department, working with other officials on plans to protect local schools and other high priority areas in the community. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This was probably the most powerful experience of my lifetime that I can remember,â&#x20AC;?

Local response Several Dakota County first responders had direct contact with the devastation those attacks caused innocent Americans. On Sept. 23, the Volls were transferred to New York to counsel workers and volunteers; Don was stationed at Ground Zero and Cory ministered in the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s morgue. Don said watching the work on TV was nothing like being there in person, and described his first reaction to the massive destruction as â&#x20AC;&#x153;utter shock.â&#x20AC;? His most vivid memories include the temporary morgue that was established at Ground Zero. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Any time they had body parts to transfer to the permanent morgue, they would have a police motorcycle escort. They would go several blocks. â&#x20AC;Ś It was almost a funeral procession,â&#x20AC;? he said. In October, two Apple Valley firemen, Stew Shepard and Michael Hammerstad, went to Ground Zero to assist New York rescuers who were constantly working in the smoldering carnage. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Those guys were so exhausted. Every day, they would go to all these funerals, then work at Ground Zero, then they would work their shift â&#x20AC;Ś regular duty,â&#x20AC;? Shepard said. He and Hammerstad attended many funerals, took fire station shifts so others could rest, and assisted many of the firefighters with projects that included building an access ramp for an injured firefighterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home. They presented the department the money they and the community had raised and hung a banner signed by Diamond Path

Elementary students in their fire station. In apparent gratitude, the New York firefighters later sent the Apple Valley Fire Department a piece of a girder from the towers; it is framed and is on display at City Hall. Memories of that day are still vivid for Voll, who listened to rescuers and victimsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; families, many of whom were still in shock that their spouses went to work in the morning and never came home. Many grappled with how to explain it to their children. Voll described his work as a sounding board, allowing them to vent and supporting them in their despair. Families across America grappled with similar issues. Farmington Mayor Todd Larson remembers his then 6-year-old daughter expressing fear that terrorists would fly planes into more buildings. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We told her the truth: We didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know,â&#x20AC;? Larson said, adding that their children werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t allowed to watch TV as news coverage of the attack was constant. Minnesota Sen. Dave Thompson, R-Lakeville, remembers a surge of emotions as he watched the news reports of the attack. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I stayed up until 3 a.m. watching until I could force myself to go to bed,â&#x20AC;? Thompson said. Of all the images during the news coverage, which went on for weeks, he was most affected by witnessing the victimsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; families grief and despair. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The people wailing around the site of the destruction with pictures of relatives, saying, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Have you seen this person? Did you recognize this person?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; And, of course, realizing in most cases their search would be fruitless. I found that to be the most horrifying scene that took place See Remembering, 13A

New York. Rev. Don Voll and his wife, Cory, both ministered to rescuers locally and in New York as part of the American Red Crossâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Spiritual Care Aviation Incident Response Team. On the day of the attacks, the Burnsville couple was called to provide spiritual ministry for responders from the 30 different agencies that had set up a command center for the state of Minnesota. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They had big TV screens up, and were communicating with other state agencies. They were tracking to see if anything would be residual in the Minneapolis area,â&#x20AC;? Don said. Similar command posts were set up across the country, said Steve Warfield, media coordinator with the Federal Bureau of Investigationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Minnesota office. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what we were dealing with,â&#x20AC;? Warfield said. Eagan police Patrol Sgt. Linda Myhre, then a sergeant with the department, also remembers being shocked by the unprovoked attacks. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t until later that she realized her report to the FBI of suspicious activities involving a student at the Pan-Am International Flight Academy in Eagan had something to do with the 9/11 massacre. A relative had told her his concerns about a suspicious e-mail the school had received from a Middle Eastern man seeking information about how to get students into the school. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There was a specific one that said he wanted them to learn how to take off, but they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t care to learn how to land it,â&#x20AC;? Myhre said, adding they wanted to pay cash for the training. Acting on that tip and other information, the FBI eventually arrested alQaida member Zacarias

Rosemount band festival gears up for 22nd annual event by Tad Johnson THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

The 22nd annual Rosemount Marching Band Festival and Silent Auction will be from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 10 at Irish Stadium. The competition will feature 11 bands vying in three classes, along with an exhibition performance by the home squad. Competing in the top class (AAA) from 3:30 to Remembering/from 12A for me,â&#x20AC;? he said. Many of the officials interviewed said they are grateful America has not experienced another massive attack since 9/11, crediting increased communications and stronger emergency networks. Bellows said much of the infrastructure for the stateof-the-art countywide emergency dispatch center was made possible by federal funds released to improve security communications. The county has also received funds for training and equipment after 9/11, including large armored vehicles for the Mutual Aid

4:30 p.m. will be (in order of performance) Marshall, Eden Prairie, Eastview and Irondale. Rosemountâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s marching band will take to the field at 4:30 p.m. and play in a nonjudged performance since it is the host team. The band also will play the National Anthem at 12:50 p.m. Class AA will feature Rochester Lourdes, Grand Rapids and River Falls from 2:15 to 3 p.m. Class A

includes Hastings, Anoka, Andover and Winona Cotter from 1 to 2 p.m. Volunteer help is needed in the following areas: concession stand shift from 3:30-6 p.m. and silent auction shifts from 10-11:30 a.m. (setup), 11:30 a.m.-3 p.m., 3:30-5 p.m. (cleanup). Those who are interested in volunteering can contact Kim Gorman at lastcallaussies@yahoo.com.

Assistance Group, a team of Dakota County police officers trained to respond to all high-risk situations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The federal government wants to make sure local government is able to respond in the event of another attack on the U.S.,â&#x20AC;? he said, adding that he believes America is better prepared for disasters because of the training and focused planing that has increased since 9/11. But, many local officials said they think Americans are less united than they were during the months after the attack. Many flew American flags from their homes and cars; there was more pa-

tience with others, and people seemed to have a new reverence for first responders. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now it seems like a lot of people have forgotten about the sacrifices made that day. Many of the public safety people responding that day gave their lives,â&#x20AC;? said Eagan Fire Department Chief Mike Scott, who was then a deputy at the Dakota County Jail. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so important not to forget the lives that were lost that day,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Both the innocent people and all the heroic people that responded by coming in when we see everyone else running away.â&#x20AC;?

The bad vibes didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t deter Wilder, an historicpreservation enthusiast, from buying the Victorianstyle home built in the late 1800s, and she moved in with her two teenage children in 1994.
