Grace holds dedication ceremonies for two-story addition by Andrew Miller SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

It was farm fields and vacant lots as far as the eye could see when Apple Valley’s Grace Lutheran Church opened in 1964 at Pennock Avenue and County Road 42. As the area grew in the ensuing decades with housing and commercial development, so did the church. A new sanctuary was built in 1979, followed by another addition in 1990. Nearly 50 years after the first service was held at Grace Lutheran, the 2,000-member church celebrated its latest expansion last Sunday. Dedication ceremonies were held to mark the completion of the “west wing” addition – a two-story addition that will be used primarily for youth groups and education programs.

Lanny Stapp’s vision of retirement was never a golf course. He wanted to make a significant difference, and became a Kids ’n Kinship volunteer, a decision that has given him an opportunity to be involved in the lives of three young men who grew up in single-family homes. Stapp’s first experience with one of them, a Lakeville North student being raised by his grandmother after his parents abandoned their children, highlighted the importance of his involvement. “The first thing he said when he got in the car was, ‘So, you really showed up.’ ” Stapp said. Kids ’n Kinship matches adult volunteers, individuals, couples or families, with children ages 5 to 16 from single-family homes and in need of additional support and encouragement.

A fire that damaged a piece of Eagan history on Sunday is suspected to be arson, Eagan fire officials say. The blaze tore through the historic Eagan Town Hall at about 5 a.m. Sept. 8, damaging the roof, a wall and several irreplaceable artifacts. Artifacts believed to be destroyed include a 1920s round election ballot box and a flag that braided itself in a windstorm in the late 1950s. A display on Eagan’s female firsts, such as its first female reporter, Elisabeth Kenneally of the Dakota County Tribune, was completely destroyed. The Eagan Historical Society may be able to replicate portions of the display, said Joanna Foote, Eagan communications coordinator and staff liaison to the historical society. “Many of the items on display were not in their original form and can be recreated,� Foote said. “We’re in the process of restoring as much as possible.� Though several items were damaged, others, such as a 100-year-old hand-carved baby cradle, were saved by Eagan firefighters. “The firefighters did

an amazing job,� Foote said. “They carried a lot of items out of the building.� Firefighters brought the fire at Wescott and Pilot Knob roads under control within 20 minutes. No one was injured, but traffic on Pilot Knob Road was blocked off for about three hours. Authorities ruled out accidental causes of the fire, but have no suspects at this time, Eagan Fire Chief Mike Scott said. The police and fire de-

partments are investigating the incident. A reward is being offered to anyone with information that may help solve the case. Those with information are urged to call the state Arson Hotline at 1-800723-2020, the Eagan Fire Department or the Eagan Police Tip Line at 651675-5799. The building, owned by the city, served as Eagan’s second town hall. The first, built in the 1800s, was destroyed by a fire. Built in 1914, the cur-

rent building was used for meetings until 1965. Most recently, it has been used by the Eagan Historical Society to house historic photos and displays. Members of the historical society are in the process of taking an inventory of all the damaged items, Foote said. There’s no estimate yet as to the cost of the damage.

Eagan insurance agent accused of filing fake policy applications An Eagan insurance agent faces felony charges for allegedly filing and profiting from fake insurance policies. Dewitt Alonzo Davison, 32, was charged in Dakota County court on Aug. 20 with felony theft by swindle. According to the criminal complaint, Davison filed numerous fake insurance applications using either fictitious or relatives’ names to collect the commission. When an agent sells a policy to a new client, the policy holder can defer payment on the new policy for up to three months. However, the agent is able to receive up to 40 percent advanced commission within two to three business days after the application is filed, regardless of the policyholder’s chosen payment date. Numerous applications

filed by Davison allegedly used three of the same bank account numbers to pay for the policies, causing the insurance company to become suspicious. In January 2011, the company contacted the Minnesota Department of Commerce, which investigated the matter. The department’s investigation allegedly revealed that Davison, who worked for the company as an agent since July 2010, received $32,088.78 in commission on 88 applications for 22 policyholders between Sept. 3, 2010, and Oct. 17, 2010. However, 19 of those policyholders didn’t exist and the two who did exist didn’t know about the policies. Only one application was from a valid customer. On all 21 fraudulent applications, Davison allegedly forged the signature of the purported applicant.

In an interview with Department of Commerce investigators, Davison allegedly admitted to filing the fraudulent applications and said he would be willing to repay the money. Davison, who worked from home, also allegedly admitted to using his father’s and sister’s name and forging their signatures on some of the applications. When asked, Davison said he didn’t know the exact amount of commission he received for the fake policies. He allegedly told investigators he was “having money issues” and “got in over his head.” Davison has prior convictions for petty misdemeanor theft and misdemeanor domestic assault in 2009 and 2008, respectively. If convicted, Davison faces up to 10 years in prison. —Jessica Harper

Opinion 360 Communities Dakota Healthy Families prepares kids for school by Jennifer Krekelberg SPECIAL TO SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

The start of the school year is underway and 360 Communities is making investments to ensure that students are well-prepared. We work with community partners to collect school supplies, connect families with resources for food, healthcare (immunizations), and housing, and provide parenting support to ensure parents are able to send their kids to school ready to learn. Each year a new group of students enters kindergarten and their future experience in school hinges on how well prepared they are intellectually, motivationally and socio-emotionally. That preparation begins at birth and the quality of early childhood education plays a critical role in a child’s future success. A child’s first teachers are their parents. 360 Communities Dakota Healthy Families works with first-time parents to ensure they have the skills to develop strong relationships with their children that strengthen emotional bonds and promote the development of socially confident children entering school. All parents want their children to be successful in school. However, according to the 2011 Minnesota Department of Education Minnesota School Readiness Study, more than 40 percent of children entering kindergarten are not ready in areas of literacy (41 percent are not proficient), math (48 percent are not proficient), and socioemotional development (44 percent are not proficient). Gabriela and Mateo are one couple who decided to access the DHF program to ensure their child would be ready. They were both 21-year-old Ecuadorian immigrants who moved to Minnesota from New York. When their daughter Maria was born in 2007, the hospital referred the couple to DHF.

Guest Columnist

Jennifer Krekelberg Gabriela first moved to the United States when she was 12 and is bilingual. Mateo had just recently immigrated to this country and did not speak English. The couple had financial stress and little support from family. Neither of them had experience with infants, and they did not know what to expect in terms of developmental milestones. DHF Home Visitor Ana Rivera connected with the family and, being bilingual, she was able to communicate with the couple in Spanish and establish a strong relationship. The couple took turns taking care of the baby while working opposite shifts because they could not afford child care. During the first two years, Ana worked with both parents together and one-on-one until Mateo needed to return to Ecuador to take care of his immigration papers. She supported the parent-child relationship by facilitating fun activities and interactive discussions with each parent. These activities provided important early learning opportunities for Maria and helped Gabriela and Mateo develop a keen awareness of Maria’s communication cues. This helped them respond to her in a nurturing and sensitive manner. While Mateo was in Ecuador, Gabriela lived as a single mom. Ana was there to provide regular support as Gabriela struggled to manage everything on her own. Ana’s strength-based approach helped boost Gabriela’s confidence as a parent and gave her the tools needed to focus on Maria even during times of great stress.

A 2002 research study by The Kauffman Early Education Exchange reported that “(the) quality of early relationships (is) a far more significant influence on early learning than are educational toys, preschool curricula, or Mozart CDs … A solid base of emotional security and social competence enables children to participate fully in learning experiences and form good relationships with teachers and peers.” When parents respond to their babies needs in an empathetic and sensitive way, children develop a secure attachment and learn to regulate their strong emotions. The ability to self-regulate will eventually help them to maintain focus and attention in school. According to the Kauffman study, the preschool years are also a pivotal period for development of school readiness. In the preschool years, the activities during DHF home visits promote a sense of achievement and motivation. The parent’s involvement and pride in their child’s accomplishments as preschoolers is also an important factor to develop school readiness. The 2009 Metro Alliance for Healthy Families Summary Report found that of families in the metro area participating in the home visiting program, 95 percent of children tested in the average range for behavioral and emotional milestones. Eighty-five percent of children tested in the average range for cognitive and physical development. In 2012, our DHF staff provided in-home visiting to 102 families, completing 1,240 home visits. Gabriela, Mateo and Maria graduated from the DHF program in 2012. At a recent pre-kindergarten screening, Maria tested at a first grade level! “I cannot believe how smart she is!” Gabriela told Ana, “You helped us so much – I do not know what we would have done without Dakota Healthy Families!”

In the past year, Mateo was able to return to the United States and recently, Gabriela gave birth to a second daughter, Isabella. She called Ana to see if she could continue with Dakota Healthy Families. Ana told her that the couple didn’t need her anymore – that Maria’s progress was the result of the couple’s hard work and that she and Mateo were now skilled parents who knew what to do. Gabriela and Mateo’s experience with 360 Communities Dakota Healthy Families is not unique. In a parent satisfaction survey, 93 percent of DHF parents reported that they felt their home visitor supported them in their parenting and helped them to better understand their child. Eighty-seven percent stated they would recommend this home visiting program to other parents. Studies have shown investment in early childhood education has far-reaching impacts. The development of strong, confident and self-sufficient adults begins at birth. When kids are supported early and develop strong relationships with parents, they have a greater opportunity to flourish in school and later in life. For society, this is an investment that pays off with a more productive and contributing citizenry coupled with a decrease in generational poverty and crime. Jennifer Krekelberg is supervisor of 360 Communities Dakota Healthy Families, which is a member of the Metro Alliance of Healthy Families. 360 Communities is Burnsville-based nonprofit that provides hope and support to people by engaging communities to prevent violence, ensure school success and promote long-term self-sufficiency.

Letters Obermueller would ease college debt To the editor: Every parent of a college-age kid knows what I’m saying when I talk about tuition increases that have gone out of sight. Six-digit debt was not the kind of future most of us looked forward to when we got our diploma. That’s the kind of world Mike Obermueller is concerned about. In running for Congress, it’s a major item on his platform to work at reducing that kind of cost for parents and students, when tuition and loan costs have escalated beyond the means of many of us. In seeking proactive solutions, Obermueller isn’t tied to remedies that may not work in favor of parents. If education is good for our country, it should be available to all the young people in it. So Obermueller has supported early childhood and family education for all, even those kids whose parents have to work three jobs to feed their families. Preschool can be prohibitively pricey for lower-income parents. Obermueller has noticed that police chiefs, sheriffs and prosecutors have taken a stand for the value of early education, and he’s seen that it hasn’t been a main priority for many in the U.S. House of Representatives, including those in the majority like the local incumbent, John

World Suicide Prevention Day

Kline. Obermueller wants a proper emphasis placed on those programs that are proven winners for Minnesotans. Without investment in the most productive priorities, our state can slide into mediocrity. Obermueller is committed that here in the 2nd District young people should be able to realize their potential. PAUL HOFFINGER Eagan

Choosing the greater right To the editor: I thought the letter by Sandy Sandoval entitled “How can a Christian say no?” was very well written and I agree with most of it.

However, she totally lost me when she wrote: “How can a Christian say no to allowing every woman the right to choose for herself about her own body?” And then goes on to say: “America is about giving rights, not taking them.” I agree with the latter, which is why Roe v. Wade and the whole abortion rights movement is a grave atrocity, since it takes away the rights of the unborn. To Ms. Sandoval’s question how can a Christian be opposed to the socalled “right to choose” I say the answer is quite simple: This so-called “right to choose” infringes upon a much greater right – the right for humans to be born at all. In my opinion, this is

Who is really listening? To the editor: Sandy Sandoval wrote a letter in the Aug. 30 edition about “How can a Christian say ‘no’?” It was long and to the point. It emphasized the hypocrisy in some Christians. She was totally right in pointing out that this country has a problem. The real problem, I believe, is that none of the right people are really listening or have given up trying to right many wrongs, i.e., Supreme Court, our legislators. Many of these “Christians” at times don’t see the connection – “Bless them Father for they know not what they do.” Also, many in the GOP are Christians by faith, yet they simply follow the mantra of political policy, according to the party.

following information on the cost of the School District 196 levy request being placed on the ballot this November. As publicly announced, the annual net cost on an average market value property of $225,000 would be $184. But that’s only for the first two years. Then, in years three through 10, the net cost rises to $360 annually. This is because approval of the new levy will terminate the existing levy, which only has two years left on it, and replace it with a new 10-year term levy. This effectively extends the current levy eight years while adding $184 per year for the duration of the new levy. The math looks like this – $184 x 2 years = $368 + $360 x 8 years = $3,248. So here’s another perspective. In the levy proponent’s vernacular, that could be 649 pizzas over 10 years! I hope to see this complete information included in future newspaper articles and School District 196 presentations. Cast your ballot as you wish, but do so with full knowledge of the cost.

To the editor: Sept. 10 was World Suicide Prevention Day. As a volunteer with the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, I encourage everyone to get involved in suicide prevention efforts whether they have been affected by suicide or not. As the surgeon general said, “Preventing suicide is everyone’s business.” So what can you do? Learning how to recognize warning signs and risk factors such as depression, changes in behavior and increased use of drugs or alcohol are critical. Take any threats of suicide seriously. Talk about it. It is a myth that asking someone about suicide will put the “idea in their head.” Those who are worried about someone, asking them if they are thinking about suicide can save a life. Call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 800-273TALK (8255) if you or someone you know is in crisis. Lastly, participate in the Out of the Darkness Community Walk on Sunday, Sept. 15, at Lake Como in St. Paul. The KEVIN walk supports AFSP’s SCHLEPPENBACH mission toward creating Apple Valley a world without suicide through funding research, education and advocacy programs.

Illustrator helps kids understand cancer by John Gessner SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Artist Jessica Bailey’s job was to turn something scary and mysterious into pictures a child would understand. Bailey illustrated a children’s book written by a mother who wanted to explain her bald head and breast cancer to her sons, who were 3 and 6 at the time. The book, “Our Mama is a Beau- Bailey tiful Garden� by Minnetonka author Katy Tessman Stanoch, was selfpublished this summer and will have a formal unveiling in October in conjunction with National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Bailey is a 2008 Burnsville High School graduate and tattoo artist who studied both art and literature in college and worked for a year at the Wild Rumpus, a children’s book store in Minneapolis. Her stepmother, Kate Bailey, is a collaborator

on an online project called “Of Scars� (www.ofscars. com), a photographic exploration, scars and all, of breast cancer survival. Stanoch was a subject for the website. Kate Bailey recommended her stepdaughter when Stanoch was searching for a book illustrator. “She couldn’t have done better,� said Stanoch, who is cancer-free after a double mastectomy and eight rounds of chemotherapy. “It was so perfect. I am extremely pleased with the thoughtful illustrations. And she was a joy to work with, super easy.� Besides getting some exposure and putting her talents to work, Bailey, 23, had other motivations for accepting the project. “Both my grandmother and my step-grandmother, Kate’s mom, are breast cancer survivors,� Bailey said. “It was kind of a personal project, and I was really happy to help Katy

District 196 teachers, nurses get pay raises Ro s e m o u n t - A p p l e Valley-Eagan School teachers and nurses will receive pay increases this year. On Sept. 9, the District 196 School Board unanimously approved a new two-year agreement with the Dakota County United Educators union that includes a 2 percent increase to the salary schedule each year. The union represents nearly 2,000 teachers and school nurses in the district, and ratified the tentative agreement Sept. 4. Board Member Bob Schutte was absent from the meeting. Teachers at the top step of pay will receive an additional 0.71 percent increase in the first year of the contract and an additional 0.6 percent in the second year. Longevity pay for eligible employees will increase by a range of $63 to $190 in the first year,

depending on the employee’s experience level, and by a range of $62 to $187 in the second year. Under the contract, which is retroactive to July 1, 2013 and spans to June 30, 2015, a first-year teacher with a bachelor’s degree will earn $37,324. An experienced teacher with a master’s degree at the top of the schedule will earn $68,194 in base salary and up to $7,183 in longevity pay. The district also agreed to increase its contribution for health insurance premiums by 2 percent in the first year and 1 percent in the second year of the contract. The pay increase is the first in two years. A contract passed in 2011 included pay freezes for all teachers and nurses in the first year and a 1 percent increase for top step salaries in the second year. —Jessica Harper

out with it.� Each page in the book lends itself to a different conversation a confused child and cancer-fighting parent might have, Stanoch said. Bailey said she used “very soft colors, very cute and visually friendly.� She made the illustrations in black ink swatches on paper, which she then scanned, cut out, colorized and assembled in Photoshop. “It was very metaphorical,� Bailey said. “She’s describing her body as being a garden, and then the cancer is the weeds and they can overtake the garden, but they don’t necessarily, because if you take care of what needs to be taken care of, the garden will blossom.� Bailey loved art while growing up in Burnsville, where her mother, Penny, still lives. “I doodled through all my classes� at Burnsville High, Bailey said. “I was a very good student. That was how I focused, by doo-

dling. That’s how I listened best.� She studied art at the University of Texas at Dallas but switched to literary studies after transferring to Eugene Lang College The New School for Liberal Arts in New York City, from which she graduated in May 2012. After her bookstore stint, Bailey did an apprenticeship at 4Points Body Gallery in south Minneapolis, where she is now a tattoo artist awaiting full state licensure. “My career is art, just body art,� Bailey said. “Our shop is all custom work, so everything clients want is drawn specially for them, unless it’s something very specific like an illustration from a book or something. ... We do a lot of drawing. It’s what I spend every day doing.� But it’s her printed illustrations that will be spotlighted at an Oct. 13 book signing for “Our Mama is a Beautiful Garden.� It will be held from 1-4 p.m. at the Fox Egg Gallery,

Funds help K-9 leap over obstacle Vermillion Kennels raises money to send Farmington dog to national trials by Tad Johnson SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

When Vermillion Kennels co-owner Andi Krapu heard that the Farmington Police Department’s K-9 unit needed funds to compete in the national trials, she started raising money to help send Officer Travis Sundvall and his dog, Bosco, to the Washington, D.C., area. In the past month, Krapu has raised $2,700 after making an appeal to clients at the kennel that often boards some of the area police and sheriff department K-9 dogs. “We know about everyone who comes to the kennel,” Krapu said. “They are all like me. Who wouldn’t want to invest in these dogs? Everyone who comes to the kennel loves pets.” The Lakeville business held a barbecue Sunday to celebrate the successful fundraiser. The event included a K-9 demonstration by Sundvall and Bosco, along with two K-9 units from Burnsville that also qualified for the na-

tional competition – Officer Ben Archambault and his K-9 partner Echo and Officer Brian Hasselman and his K-9 partner Razor. The event was a chance for people to see the dogs in action, leaping over obstacles, using their excellent sense of smell to sniff out trouble and immobilizing a perpetrator in the bite-sleeve demonstration. “I think the biggest thing that was accomplished was the audience got to see what they can do while they are working,” Krapu said. “It takes a lot of training. The amount of training that goes into these dogs is amazing.” She said the officers are great guys who want the people to know who they are and know that the dogs are trained to be aggressive only when commanded. “One minute, they attack someone wearing the bite sleeve, and the next minute, they are getting a hug and a kiss on the neck from a child,” Krapu said. Krapu is impressed with the dogs that demonstrate tremendous focus, patience and bravery.

“That is a very unique combination,” she said. She said it was an honor and a pleasure to raise the funds for Sundvall and Bosco. “He deserved to go,” Krapu said of the U.S. Patrol Canine Association’s National Patrol Dog Field Trial, which will be Sept. 29 to Oct. 3. Sundvall and Bosco graduated from the St. Paul Canine Training Center in May 2010. The school’s 12-week of training course is recognized nationally and around the world for its ability to teach highly trained canine-officer teams. Both Echo and Razor were imported from eastern Europe and bred specifically for police work, according to the city of Burnsville. Both dogs completed St. Paul Canine Training Center course before going to work, where they also are used for criminal apprehension, tracking, evidence search and recovery, and narcotics detection. The K-9 units are funded in part through a

matching grant from the St. Paul Canine Foundation and donations. Donations are used to support K-9 unit equipment and training expenses. If you are interested in making a tax deductible donation, to the Farmington Police Department mail them to 19500 Municipal Drive, Farmington, MN 55024. Sundvall can be reached at 651-7559638. Krapu said she’s honored to take care of these animals when their families can’t be with them. “When they are here, we bathe them and clip their nails and they respect us,” Krapu said. “My thought is that if they are willing to leave their valuable dogs with us, we must be OK.” Krapu said she researched the dog boarding industry for about two years before opening Vermillion Kennels. She is a certified pet technician and certified dog day care provider.

Eagan’s streets will come alive this weekend for an event unlike any other in the city’s history. The city will close several major roadways from 1 to 4 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 15, for its first Streets Alive event. The free event opens portions of Central and Northwood parkways, and Denmark Avenue to pedestrians to connect with more than 100 local community groups, volunteer organizations, city displays, and family and fitness activities. Pilot Knob Road at the intersection with Central Parkway will be open to traffic and will be monitored by Eagan police. “It’s all about making community connections and promoting healthy living,” said Kerry Phillips, Eagan recreation supervisor and Market Fest coordinator. Streets Alive will kick off at 1:15 p.m. with a 1.5-mile Family Fun Walk from the Eagan Community Center to Byerly’s off Denmark Avenue. Participants are encouraged to walk, bike or in-line skate to the event, which has entrances and free parking at Eagan Community Center and Byerly’s. Shuttles will run back and forth to both ends of the route for those in need of transportation assistance. “There’s something for everyone of all ages,” Mayor Mike Maguire said. The event will have many family activities including carnival games, a children’s play area with jumpers, face painting, balloon artists, Big Wheel races, and a Wii Sports truck. Along the route, families will find a health

fair, healthy food sampling and food concessions. In addition to food for purchase, free healthy snacks and bottled water will be available. The health fair will offer free health screenings, a CPR demonstration and health professionals who will be available for questions. A number of raffles will be drawn to give away two adult and two children’s bicycles and helmets, and free tickets to Eagan Theater Company performances. Fans of KS95’s Moon and Staci show can visit with Staci Matthews beginning at 1:30 p.m. at the Message Envy booth. Several Market Fest vendors will sell fresh produce, flowers, speciality sauces and meats at the Central Park Pavilion for a special Sunday farmers market. Families will be able to listen to the Zinghoppers and Squeeze Daddy perform at various stages, check out vehicles from Eagan police, fire and public works departments, and watch demonstrations by the Eagan K-9 unit and a unicycle club. Demonstrations will also be given on pickleball, a new sport similar to tennis that is growing in popularity. Representatives from Eagan Athletic Association, Boy Scouts of America, Girl Scouts, Eagan and Lakeville Resource Centers, Eagan Historical Society and many other local organizations will be at booths throughout the route. Free fitness classes will be available on Denmark Avenue near Byerly’s and will include youth Zumba at 1:45 p.m., Zumba at 2:30 p.m. and yoga at 3:30 p.m. Streets Alive was the

brain child of Eaganbased Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota, which has sponsored 15 such events, including Eagan’s, throughout the state. The concept was born out of a settlement the health insurer won against a number of tobacco companies during the late 1990s. With that money, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota created its Center for Prevention in 2006, which created the Open Street Initiative, which sponsors community events aimed at promoting healthy lifestyles. “We’re really excited about the (Eagan Streets Alive event), particularly with our headquarters in Eagan,” said Stacy Housman, communications manager for the Center for Prevention at Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota. The city of Eagan decided to join the initiative as a way to further its mission of promoting healthy lifestyles, Maguire said. “The city is engaged in encouraging people to bike or walk whenever possible and to use the assets in Eagan,” he said. Other sponsors include Genisys Credit Union, Sun Thisweek and the Dakota County Tribune. The event, which will occur rain or shine, is in conjunction with Showcase Eagan, a long-running biennial event organized by the city of Eagan to increase awareness of city services while showcasing local nonprofits, civic and community groups.

Woman gets fake company credit card, charges $14,000, police say An Eagan woman is accused of stealing more than $14,000 from her employer by fraudulently obtaining a company credit card. Wendy Marie Bacon, 41, was charged in Dakota County court on Aug. 5 with four felony counts of financial transaction card fraud. According to the criminal complaint, Bacon was in charge of accounts payable at the business and

obtained a company credit card without her employer’s knowledge in 2007. She allegedly used the card to purchase clothing, cell phones, electronic gaming systems and other personal items. Bacon incurred $14,000 in charges between 2007 and 2012, the complaint stated. Bacon was fired from the business in May 2012 when company officials allegedly discovered she had

stolen money from the petty cash drawer. Upon being confronted by company officials, Bacon allegedly admitted to taking the money and said she had hoped to reconcile the fund. Bacon allegedly told her employer she took the money to care for her children. Upon reviewing company records further in October 2012, the business’ chief financial officer discovered the allegedly

fraudulent credit card and notified police. Officers’ attempts to speak with Bacon were unsuccessful, according to the complaint. If convicted, Bacon could face up to 10 years in prison on each count. — Jessica Harper

2013 Festival spotlights children’s author Nolan She is a former counselor at Lakevile Elementary Nancy Nolan named the main character in her first book after a beloved family pet. And she originally planned to have the character be a talking dog – but decided against it because she thought it might send mixed signal to kids reading “Mr. Munson’s Itvice.” In the book, Mr. Munson is a school counselor – human – dispensing advice to a student about friendship. “My son adopted a greyhound from the racetrack,” she said. “(In the book) Mr. Munson was originally going to be a greyhound dog, but we thought it might be confusing for kids to have a greyhound as a school counselor.” Nolan, a Lakeville resident who recently retired from her job as school counselor at Lakeview Elementary, is the featured literary artist at this year’s Lakeville Art Festival Sept. 21-22. She’ll be doing readings of “Mr. Munson’s Itvice” each day of the festival – at 10:45 a.m., 12:45 p.m. and 3:45 p.m. Published this year by Beaver’s Pond Press, “Mr. Munson’s Itvice” is No-

Notebook: Applejack Invite draws another top field by Mike Shaughnessy SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Rosemount’s boys and Eagan’s girls will return to defend their team championships at the Applejack Invite cross country meet Friday, Sept. 13, at Aronson Park in Lakeville. The meet, started by former Lakeville High School cross country coach Jack Strommer, remains one of the top regular-season events on the high school cross country schedule. Lakeville North and Lakeville South will compete in the meet, which begins at 3:30 p.m. with the boys C race. The boys varsity race is scheduled for 5:05 p.m., followed by the girls varsity meet. The varsity boys race is 5,000 meters and the varsity girls will run 4,000. Four of the top eight teams in this week’s Class AA girls rankings – East Ridge (second), Eagan (third), Edina (sixth) and Lakeville South (eighth) – Apple Valley’s Colleen Moore (22) tries to tip the ball past Lydia Marconett of Vir- will take the starting line ginia during a match at the Aerie Invitational volleyball tournament last weekend at Friday.

Lightning marches on

Lightning, AV fall in SSC football by Mike Shaughnessy SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Although it’s too early in the season to call it a must-win game, Rosemount linebacker Nate Sackett didn’t hesitate to call his team’s 24-0 victory over Eastview an important one. “Eastview’s always been one of the games we get up for, and we haven’t played them in a while,” said Sackett, a senior captain. “We really wanted this game.” Rosemount dominated Friday night’s South Suburban Conference football game on the statistics sheet, and by the second half the Irish also started dominating on the scoreboard. Rosemount quarterback Jackson Erdmann threw three touchdown passes, two to Dimitri Williams, while the defense held Eastview to 164 yards. The Irish were able to limit Eastview standout running back Will Rains to 33 yards on 19 carries. It was the first game between the schools since October 2011, when Eastview won 49-13 in the section quarterfinals. Because of a South Suburban Conference schedule rotation, Rosemount and Eastview did not play last season. Eastview coach Kelly Sherwin said after Friday’s game there was no sense in trying to deny the obvious. “We played like we practiced this week, and we had a rough week of practice,” Sherwin said. “We were outplayed and out-physicaled.” Rosemount (1-1) might already have established itself as one of the top teams in Class 6A. The Irish lost to Wayzata 2421 in double overtime in their season opener – a game Sackett said they believe they should have won – before dismantling Eastview, a state quarterfinalist last season. Eastview ran as many plays as Rosemount, but had less than half of the Irish’s 352 yards. The Lightning (1-1) crossed midfield twice and never advanced beyond the Rosemount 28-yard line. Sherwin said he was surprised Rosemount was able to contain Rains “because that really hasn’t happened before, and it’s a credit to Rosemount. We made a lot of mistakes, which our kids are

CELTS, from 1A Monday morning in the kitchen area by responding Rosemount firefighters was contained to the south portion of the building, which sustained heavy smoke damage. Celts, owned by Brandon Barth and managed by Justin Lecher in Rosemount, said that the north portion of the business, which has a separate entrance and was added in summer 2004, may be open this weekend to serve beverages only. “At this point, we don’t know anything concrete,” they reported, saying the best way to confirm when it opens will be at www. facebook.com/CeltsPubofRosemount. “Right now we can’t put time frames on things.” Still, they project that the kitchen won’t be ready for use at a minimum of a few weeks, and it will take several weeks to open the south portion of the business at the corner of 145th Street and Highway 3/South Robert Trail. “The best way people can support us is by continuing to support our other establishments in Farmington and Inver Grove Heights,” they said. They said they want to thank the firefighters and emergency personnel who responded and controlled the fire from inflicting more damage. Celts said it was unable to put an estimate on the damage and does not know the extent to which items need to be replaced

GALA, from 1A

The nonprofit mentoring organization serves Apple Valley, Burnsville, Eagan, Farmington, Lakeville and Rosemount with the goal of having children form friendships with responsible, consistent role models. Celebrating the more than 3,000 local youths who have been enriched through the program, Kids ’n Kinship will hold its second annual gala at Crystal Lake Golf Club 4:30-7 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 6. Kids ’n Kinship Executive Director Jan Belmore said the gala last year to recognize its 40th anniversary was so well-received they decided to do it again. “The thing I love about our program is that it’s preventative,” Belmore said. “It brings a lot of joy into children’s lives and our volunteers are people who have a heart to volunteer with children. They are the best in the world.” At the gala, Dakota County Attorney James Backstrom will serve as master of ceremonies, and local musician Tim Mahoney will perform. Guests will be served an elegant sit-down dinner and may participate in a silent auction, wine cork pull and purse tag pull. The program will include a testimonial by a young adult who was once mentored through Kids ’n Kinship. “There are so many great stories,” Belmore Laura Adelmann is at laura. said. “What they all have adelmann@ecm-inc.com.

Rosemount Fire Department crews were on the scene at an early morning fire Monday, Sept. 9, at Celts Pub & Grill in Rosemount. (Photo by Tad Johnson) in the kitchen and south portion. The north portion of the building, they said, required a thorough cleaning by a professional fire restoration company to remove smoke residue. Nothing had to be disposed of on the north side besides liquor bottles that were already open, they said. Rosemount firefighters, along with those from neighboring Apple Valley, arrived on scene to find smoke coming out of the building and a fire in the kitchen area, according to Rosemount Fire Chief Richard Schroeder. He said there was heavy smoke damage as crews were still working at around 9 a.m. to clean up the damage with fans running through open doors of the bar and restaurant. Celts posted a message on its Facebook page saying: “Unfortunately, Celts Pub of Rosemount had

THE 99, from 1A

a fire early this morning and will be closed until further notice. No one was in the building at the time and everyone is safe. We thank you for your support and patience.” A call placed to the Rosemount fire marshal has not been returned. Many area residents were expressing sadness and support on Celts Facebook page in the aftermath of the fire. Celts Pub has been a gathering place for many, like the “public houses” in Ireland that Celts honors with its Irish-theme in a community that celebrates its links to the Irish homeland of many of the township’s founders. One local resident wrote on Facebook that her kids were just asking the other night when they could go eat there. She said she hopes Celts is open in time for her husband’s birthday party.

and he has received thousands of emails from people who have changed their lives and made better decisions as a result. He said one young man turned over a knife during the weapons check before entering “The 99” and never retrieved it, deciding against his plan to use it to take his life. “He told one of the staff people (“The 99”) had really changed his life,” Henshaw said. “He really wanted to live.” He described the production’s reallife re-enactments as a key reason for its profound effect on people. “It’s the real deal. That’s why it grabs their attention. That’s why it’s life changing.” Visitors must be 12 or older to enter, and are asked to read a written warning advising pregnant women and people with heart conditions to exercise extreme caution upon entering due to the graphic nature of the production. It takes about 45 minutes to completely tour the event, and visitors can opt out of rooms or leave the production at any time. Counselors are available for prayer and discussion after the experience. Lakeville is the 36th city in the country where “The 99” has been held this year; they are nearly booked for 2014, and Henshaw said he is not sure when “The 99” will return to the Twin Cities. “We go where we’re invited,” he said. Entrance to “The 99” is $3, and is open to the public from 7-11 p.m. Friday through Sunday, Sept. 13-15 and 20-22. Interpreters for the deaf will be available during the last weekend. Celebration Church is located at 18855 Kenyon Ave. in Lakeville. More information is at www.whatisthe99.com.

na. “We’ve had police officers go through this and say ‘Man, I’m here every week,’ ” Henshaw said. For some local youths, the warning and message of “The 99” has resonated. Lakeville North High School senior Kourtney Vanalstine plans to go to the event every Sunday night, returning with friends and family in tow. “I like how they show real-life situations and it’s cool how they didn’t sugar-coat anything,” Vanalstine said. Emma Hagen, 13, Lakeville, said she did not expect “The 99” to be so realistic. “It was more scary because I felt like it was actually happening,” the Kenwood Trail eighth-grader said. The experience left her feeling stronger in her convictions to make good choices, even in the face of peer pressure. “It showed where you’d end up and how it affects your family, too,” Emma said. “I know not to do that stuff, and now I know what would happen if I did.” Emma’s mother, Melissa Hagen, said she decided to let her youngest of six children attend the production in hopes it would reinforce wise decision-making. “A little shock value is not such a bad thing,” Melissa said. “I hope it will help in her future as she makes individual choices when I’m not available to guide her.” After Emma shared her feelings about the production, Melissa also has plans to attend to better understand her daughter’s concerns and perspective. “She was telling me how sad it made her, and the parts that were important to her,” Melissa said. “I just want to get into her mind a little.” Laura Adelmann is at laura.adelmann@ Henshaw said 450,000 people around ecm-inc.com. the U.S. have toured the production,

“We don’t know where else to celebrate our family’s birthdays,” she wrote. The business has been active in the community through its sponsorship of local activities, involvement in Rosemount Leprechaun Days and hosting a bluegrass music series, among other efforts. More than 60 people had commented or responded to Celts’ post about the fire as of Wednesday. It’s not the first time that Celts has had to close a portion of its location in Rosemount due to a mishap. In June 2010, a motorist drove her vehicle through the mostly glass north-side wall that faced the busy street corner undergoing a construction project at the time.

GRACE, from 1A from the original 1964 building. A new church sign along Pennock Avenue, as well as a freshly surfaced parking lot, were included in the $3.3 million expansion project, which was designed by Apple Valleybased CNH Architects and built by Langer Construction of West St. Paul. As part of the project, the church’s 1964 building was demolished. The land on which it stood, on the

west side of the church, will become a fire pit area for the church’s youth group. A capital appeal at the church raised $1.5 million toward the creation of the two-story addition, with the remainder being financed through Thrivent Financial for Lutherans. “It’s an ambitious project,” Matthews said. “Grace took this step to make a building for the future at a time when a lot of churches are challenged with declining member-

Training is provided, and matches are made through a thorough screening process involving both parties. Stapp said he has taken his mentees to the cabin, taught them to water ski, shown them how to fix cars and shown them how to manage finances. “Sometimes, it’s just being there,” Stapp said. “Many times they don’t have any regular routine in their life. A lot of it is just showing up as opposed to going to Disney World.” Kids ’n Kinship is holding information sessions for people to find out how the program works. The sessions are at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 24, at the Galaxie Library in Apple Valley and at 6 p.m. Monday, Oct. 28, at the Wescott Library in Eagan.

AS SWEET AS CANDY! Candy is a beautiful Calico girl who is so sweet we had to name her Candy! Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s had a very tough life and yet remained sweet and loving through it all. Her person lost her job and put Candy on a farm, which scared and confused her. Candy was used to sleeping in her personâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bed, and had no front claws, and she had a terrible time. Candy was clearly not a farm girl!

Luckily, someone from Last Hope learned of Candyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plight and arranged to bring her to foster care. Candy was finally in a place she could be comfortable again! Candy is a real doll and is a people girl. She will meet you at the door with little squeaks of joy. She loves to snuggle up next to you and roll over for belly rubs, or just sit next to you and be close. She likes to climb on your lap and sleep on your tummy. She also likes to play like a little kitten. She is almost 10 but you would never know it (check out her video!) http://youtube/vYuvfp4Sens Candy is vet checked, FeLV negative, current on all her vaccinations, spayed and declawed. She just had a dental. Candy has many years ahead of her; could they be with you? Adoption Fee $90. Foster Mom Judy: 952-492-2331, weidtje@gmail.com

Bald eagles pluck fish from lengths of the Mississippi River, once so polluted as to be nearly without fish. Other signs show a resiliency in the big river, a capacity to heal, suggesting environmental transgressions, properly atoned, may be forgiven. Former Department of Natural Resources Commissioner Gene Merriam, of the Freshwater Society, looks to the future of the Mississippi River and other waters with mixed emotions. “It can vary day to day,” Merriam, a member of the ECM Publishers board of directors, said of his belief in humanity’s ability to live sustainably. Still, history shows that commitment, good law and adequate resources can bring positive change. “And the Mississippi is a good example,” Merriam said of the river that flows along Dakota County’s northeast border, including a 2-mile stretch along Rosemount. More data for judging is coming in. The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency is assessing the state’s largest rivers. During the next five years, MPCA crews will be checking fish, aquatic invertebrates, water chemistry and other indicators of health in the Mississippi, Rainy, Minnesota, Red and St. Croix rivers. First is the Mississippi, with MPCA crews testing and sampling from Itasca State Park at its headwaters to St. Anthony Falls in Minneapolis. On a recent sunny morning, a MPCA boat slipped off the Mississippi shoreline downstream from Columbia Heights, electroshock cables dangling in the water like feelers. The crew, with nets in hand, stood on the bow, ready to scoop-up what the river offered.

The Mississippi River is considered a world-class smallmouth fishery. (DNR photo) “The river is healthier; to the rise.
