Helping hand has lasting impact

District 196 board member says a first impression of American kindness motivates him today by Tad Johnson SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

When a 19-year-old Sachin Isaacs arrived at the Amtrak train depot in Winona, Minn., in 1999, the two suitcases he had brought from India had been jostled around so much during the ride from Chicago that they had burst open and scattered his clothes. Isaacs admits that it was a pathetic sight, which was compounded when the emigrating college student’s ride didn’t show up and he didn’t have anyone else to call. After Isaacs sat at the station for about an hour as the clock neared midnight, the only other person there – the station master ready to close up for the night – approached him. Isaacs explained as best he could, being fairly new to the English language, that he was in America for

An Eastview High School student is among a select group of talented young dancers who will be showcasing classical Indian dance at a performance later this month in St. Paul. Vibha Mavanji, an Apple Valley resident and 10th-grader at Eastview, is set to perform in “Ritu-The Seasons” on Jan. 28 at the Anne Simley Theater at Hamline University in St. Paul. Mavanji has been training in Indian classical dance for 11 years, since age 4. “The first aspect of the art that drew me in was the costume,” she said. “While traveling in India, I visited quite a few relatives who were dancers themselves. One had a large portrait with this spectacular costume. At that moment, I knew I had to pursue the art just to wear that. “Over time my motivation gravitated from the costume to a passion for the art itself.” “Ritu-The Seasons,” winner of a Knight Foundation grant, is a production by St. Paul-based Kala Vandanam Dance Company, where Mavanji has been training under instructor Suchitra Sairam for seven years. “Vibha is a technically vibrant dancer, and is quite fearless in her expressional dance,” Sairam said. “She has a palpable passion and reverence for the art, which shows both in her practice and performance.” “Ritu-The Seasons” spotlights south

Seventy-five years ago, the lives of more than 120,000 people of Japanese ancestry living in the United States were changed forever when President Franklin D. Roosevelt issued an executive order setting in motion their forced removal from the West Coast and mass incarceration during World War II. Karen Tanaka Lucas, an Apple Valley resident and board member with the Twin Cities chapter of the Japanese American Citizens League, is among those for whom the mass incarceration is more than a historical footnote.

Her father, Walter Tanaka, was in the first class of soldiers selected to participate in a U.S. Army Intelligence program that harnessed the language skills of Japanese-Americans. After training — including time at the U.S. Army’s Military Intelligence Service Language School in Savage — he served in the Pacific theater in World War II, providing interpretation during interrogation of Japanese soldiers and other activities requiring translation. He continued serving with Army Intelligence in the years following the war during the U.S. occupation of Japan. Tanaka Lucas’ other relatives from California, however, found themselves in a considerably different situation in World War II. Both her father’s and mother’s Apple Valley resident Karen Tanaka Lucas’ father, Walter Tanaka, served with U.S. Army Intelligence during World War II. Other relatives See HISTORY, 7A were confined to an internment camp in Arizona. (Photo submitted)

4A January 13, 2017 SUN THISWEEK - Apple Valley

Opinion Session 2017: Our message to lawmakers Newspaper editorial boards across Minnesota must feel at times as if they are speaking to a brick wall when it comes to making recommendations to state lawmakers. And there is good reason for such feelings. Repeated recommendations to the Minnesota Legislature during and in the closing days of the 2016 session mostly fell on deaf ears. Repeated calls for a special session in the final six months of 2016 to take care of unfinished regular session business also fell on deaf ears. It is almost incomprehensible that lawmakers would go home without completing action on key subjects that included bonding, taxes and transportation. But yet they did after 11th-hour negotiations exploded in their faces, leaving no wiggle room for resolution. With those failures on the books, lawmakers were still unable to resolve their differences and meet in special session to take care of unfinished business.

ECM Editorial Even with the added pressure of a mutual desire by Republicans and Democrats to address a health insurance crisis, calls for a special session fell on deaf ears. Right now some 100,000 state residents face staggering health insurance premium increases on the individual market but are not eligible for federal subsidies. The past year was government dysfunction as its best, or worst, if you prefer. The opening of the 2017 session on Jan. 3 left many wondering if there would be a return to common sense governing or more of the same gridlock, 2016 style. The relationship between Gov. Mark Dayton and House Speaker Kurt Daudt, R-Crown, is cool at best. And with Republicans in control of both bodies of state government, more hard lines could be drawn. On the surface, that does not

bode well for a productive session. One bright spot, however, is the rise of Sen. Paul Gazelka, R-Nisswa, newly elected as Senate Majority Leader. Gazelka is a solid conservative but a man with a desire to compromise and make government function. He could be the needed bridge between Gov. Dayton and Speaker Daudt. His task will not be easy, but we believe he understands the role he may need to play. There is plenty of work to do in this session. Taking care of unfinished business from 2016 is at the top of the list. Crafting a new state budget will also spotlight differences between DFL and Republican philosophical positions on spending. Compromise on all parts will be necessary. If lawmakers make progress on tax relief, health insurance reform and transportation spending, the state’s projected $1.4 billion surplus will shrink. How to address funding levels for K-12 and higher education are important subjects that

must be debated. As an editorial board, we could set down a series of recommendations that we believe the Legislature should follow. That’s what we have done in the past. But faced with the prospect of speaking to the brick wall once again, we will delay editorial comments to a review of the actions lawmakers take in 2017. We do have one straightforward request as the session progresses. Get your work done and get your work done on time. No more 11th-hour decisions and cramming through bills which leave the public in the dark. Government in Minnesota will be best served if elected officials use the next five months to finish business on time and with the transparency that has been sadly missing. This is an opinion of the ECM Editorial Board. Sun Thisweek and the Dakota County Tribune are part of ECM Publishers Inc.

Letters Thank a mentor, be a mentor To the editor: Mr. Schaefer, Ruth H., Mary M. – important people in my youth who were there when I needed them. We can all think back to a time in our childhood when we depended on others for support while struggling with an important personal decision, needed a role model to provide guidance in new or uncertain situations, or simply wanted a friend to be at our side to share in the good times. January is National Mentoring Month. This month is set aside each year to spotlight the importance of mentors and the need for every child to have a caring adult in his or her life. NMM celebrates mentoring and the positive effect it can have on young lives, with the goals of raising awareness of mentoring in its various forms and to recruit mentors, especially in programs that have waiting lists of young people. I’m proud to serve as vice president on the board of Kids ‘n Kinship, a local nonprofit youth mentoring organization serving southern Dakota County. We provide over 60 children, ages 5-16, primarily from single-parent homes, with the powerful opportunity to have an additional caring adult in their life through our mentor individuals, couples, or families. We continue to have a waiting list of great kids, however, and are always working to recruit more volunteer mentors. Visit our website at www.kidsnkinship.org, follow us on Facebook at facebook.com/kidsnkinship, or Twitter at twitter. com/kidsnkinship to learn more about our vibrant organization. Through a Kids ‘n Kinship mentoring relationship, a child forms a long-term friendship with a caring adult, receives positive attention and experience with a variety of activities. They develop

the sense of self-worth that is essential to successfully function in school, in healthy relationships, and, eventually, a job. Whether you choose to be a role model and friend to children in your own life or seek a more formal opportunity to connect, remember this month to honor those who served as a formal or informal mentor to you and consider the opportunity to pass the gift on to those in your own community.

A time for reflection and thanks To the editor: I love living and working in Dakota County. In my role as Xcel Energy community relations manager, I get to work with customers and local officials to help solve issues and support the organizations that make this community a great place to live and work. Our employees pledged $3 million to the United Way for 2017, a figure matched by the company for a total of $5.7 million. We continue our longtime support of Learning Buddies program through DARTS, which is celebrating 20 years of community impact. We also help with local high school scholar-

ship programs, and community celebrations such as Leprechaun Days and Eagan Funfest. In 2016, we made considerable investments in natural gas facilities, both transmission pipelines and individual services. The past year marked the end of coal operations at Black Dog Plant in Burnsville as the plant was converted to natural gas as part of Xcel Energy’s plan to transition away from coal and reduce carbon emissions. Today we are working to transform our energy future and invest in lowcost wind energy while maintaining a safe, reliable and affordable electric system for customers. As the nation’s No. 1 utility wind energy provider, we’re proposing to add more wind energy by building new wind farms in Minnesota and North Dakota. We’re building on our industryleading carbon reductions while delivering what our customers and communities want-cleaner, more renewable energy at an affordable price. We’re finding that wind energy is in some cases cheaper than natural gas, making it a great value for our customers. Sixty percent of our electricity will be carbon-free in 15 years. We see this achievement as a win for customers who want clean energy at a cost effective price. Next year we’ll con-

tinue to deliver reliable electricity, while ramping up our economic development throughout the region. We’re working with communities to identify and develop sites ready for business expansion that will create capital investment and local jobs. Thanks again, to everyone, from the businesses community to nonprofit organizations, from local government partners to friends and neighbors. I wish you all the best in 2017. JAKE SEDLACEK Xcel Energy community relations manager,

Make Minnesota great again To the editor: A discussion of greatness would have to include a good educational system, one that enables all youngsters to gain the skills necessary either to merely survive or, on the other hand, thrive with a healthy income. Part of what gives access to such education may include decent treatment by the federal tax system, whatever their income. Many middle and upper income folks have access to deductions for medical expenses, education expenses for those who can afford to send their children to a

private school, and capital gains deductions. Lowerincome earners may find it more difficult to access deductions and exemptions on their tax forms. And there is the possibility of gaining breaks for some struggling parents. For instance, the Earned Income Tax Credit lifted more than 9 million Americans out of poverty in the last year on record, and some of them are children in the south metro area. Many middle-income people have tax breaks like home mortgage deductions, education deductions for those who can afford to send their kids to private schools, and capital gains deductions. Our members of Congress know how important it is to extend that program to cover all low income people, especially those who would otherwise be taxed into poverty. Currently, single people, among others, don’t have access to many of the benefits wealthier folks have. Legislative plans to extend eligibility may provide some help. Extending EITC for childless workers would benefit 13 million hire-ons under the plan of Speaker of the House Paul Ryan and 16 million employees under the plan of U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown and U.S. Rep. Richard Neal, both Democrats. We should advocate with U.S. Rep. Jason Lewis, R-Woodbury, for an extension of the EITC that would benefit many residents of Dakota County. LARRY KOENCK Eagan

Nobody wins

need answering from those in attendance and why Coach Tracy Claeys lack of leadership allowed the boycott. As for his poorly worded tweet (I do not believe it was meant in any way to say sexual violence isn’t an issue or this type of behavior is OK), he should have kept silent and dealt with the issue inhouse. The tweet showed his poor leadership abilities and his losing control of his team. Had he not said anything, would we be up in arms that he was silent on the issue? Either way, the majority got their wish and he is gone. Was this handled well? No. To quote a former Gopher athlete: “Nobody wins in this scenario.” Sexual violence is wrong. What prompted me to write this letter is the self-righteous attitude expressed against the players (not the 10 charged, they can suffer whatever comes their way), coach and administration. Joe Nathan’s recent columns made some valid points from a “jaded’ point of view. People heard athletes sexually assaulted a coed at a party, then the players boycotted the Holiday Bowl in support of their teammates (without all the facts and details), then read Claeys tweet, and rushed to judgment, never trying to find out what led to the boycott or what the tweet meant. We have an entire part of our population that read and saw only what they wanted and made their judgment on that alone. Most certainly the U of M Athletic Department has a long way to go to clean up its act, athletes should be held to a higher standard of behavior as well as the coaches and administrators. Claeys is gone, let’s let the school try and clean up this and all the other messes and hope this the end of the story.

To the editor: I was disgusted by the recent findings of the investigation of the University of Minnesota football team, even if only parts of it were accurate, and I am not saying that they weren’t. Whatever went GARY HUHNERKOCH on that night was disgust- Burnsville ing and shameful for all parties involved. There are many questions that

Church expansion raises concerns Growing Berean Baptistâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plans include new auditorium by John Gessner SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

As many churches struggle with declining numbers, Berean Baptist in Burnsville reports that its worship attendance grew by nearly 30 percent in 2014 and 2015. Berean has expanded to include a Lakeville campus at Kenwood Trail Middle School and plans to open a third by next year, according to its website. But growth comes with headaches, including neighborhood objections to Bereanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plans to expand its home campus at 309 County Road 42 E. Both neighbors and church members spoke at a Jan. 9 public hearing before the Burnsville Planning Commission on Bereanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plan for a 26,409-square-foot addition. The project includes a new 1,046-seat worship space and auditorium, an expanded commons area, additional classrooms, expansion of the parking lot southwest of the church and a new parking lot to the west across Plymouth Avenue.

Between the new worship center and the existing sanctuary, the church could seat up to 1,700, according to the city. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m all for expansion and I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great to see a community church grow,â&#x20AC;? said Paul Willson, 217 Geneva Blvd. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But this expansion looks like a megachurch, in my opinion.â&#x20AC;? Already, traffic from Sunday worship makes it difficult to get in and out of his neighborhood, said Willson, who lives at the corner of Geneva and Innsbrook Lane. The 17.6-acre church site includes three separate parcels west of County Road 42 and south of 145th Street E. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s surrounded by singlefamily property to the north, west and south, and Good Shepherd Lutheran Church to the north. The church is zoned R1 single-family, which allows religious institutions as a conditional use. The expansion would require several changes to the churchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s conditional use permit, including allowing a 42-foot-high worship center in an R1 zone, which has a 30-foot maximum. The separate parking lot would require both a permit amendment and a zoning variance. A vari-

ance would be needed to allow more than three driveways at the church site, where six are proposed and five now exist, according to the city. When the church sent more than 300 invitations for a neighborhood open house on the project in September, only one resident attended. When the city hosted a neighborhood meeting on Jan. 4 with church leaders and their development team, 17 residents showed up and voiced a long list of concerns. The meeting was a â&#x20AC;&#x153;major blowup,â&#x20AC;? said Bob Hilleque, 150 E. Travelers Trail, who said he started attending Berean in 1994 and that the church is about 60 years old. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just a wonderful place to be,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I hope that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll consider approving this.â&#x20AC;? The crowd swelled to a full house in the City Hall council chambers for the Planning Commission hearing. At staffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recommendation, the commission voted to table the application to give the church and residents more time to discuss solutions to neighborhood concerns and a traffic study the church has conducted. Another neighborhood meeting, to be coordinated by city staff, is set for Tuesday, Jan. 17,

at the church. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll take a place of worship in a community over the alternative any day,â&#x20AC;? Commissioner Ram Singh said. But, he added, â&#x20AC;&#x153;How much can we do in an R1 neighborhood? I support places of worship, but I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know.â&#x20AC;? The number of vehicles coming from the south to get to the church and safety of pedestrians and children is a key concern of neighbors. Other concerns have been directed at the extra parking and lighting and the loss of wooded areas to construction. With parking on both sides of Plymouth Avenue, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m basically going to be driving through the parking lot of a churchâ&#x20AC;? to get home, said Mark

Schroer, 14600 Plymouth Ave. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think for us, this is an issue of traffic, of parking, of size and scope,â&#x20AC;? said Damon Laliberte, 14609 Innsbrook Lane, who said he shares a property line with the church where the expansion would encroach. There is no planned buffer between the site and the nearest neighbors, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not talking about a church,â&#x20AC;? said Robert Breckner, 14725 Innsbrook Circle, who said the church has outgrown its site. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re talking about an events center that is a church.â&#x20AC;? The church has â&#x20AC;&#x153;done a lot of due diligenceâ&#x20AC;? and will have its traffic engineer at the Jan. 17

meeting, said Eric Rose, of Lakeville, who chairs Bereanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s building committee and is a member of the church elder board. The neighborhood objections on Jan. 4 â&#x20AC;&#x153;kind of threw us a curveball,â&#x20AC;? he said. But the church wants to work with neighbors on possible concessions both sides can live with, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We understand the concerns and we sympathize with the concerns of the residents,â&#x20AC;? Rose said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to try to do everything we can to be the best neighbor.â&#x20AC;? The church also expanded its building in 2000.

Cribbage tourney set Jan. 24 A cribbage tournament to raise money for the Himalayan Cataract Project will be held 1-4 p.m. Jan. 24 at Tops Pizza in Rosemount. The tournament is seeking 16 entrants for a double-elimination tournament with prizes for the top eight. The event is being organized by Rosemount resident Deb White who has been raising money for the Himalayan Cataract Project for a few years. Recently White rode her bicycle through the Natchez Trace â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 450 miles â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to raise over $1,000. She has raised over $12,000 and this spring she plans to ride 350 miles from Pittsburgh to Washington, D.C., along the Great Allegheny Pass trail and the C&O towpath. HCP is an organization that is in eight countries. It organiz-

es eye surgery for people living in Nepal who need to regain their sight. She said it costs $50 per pair of eyes to remove the cataracts. White visited the clinic in Kathmandu in November 2015 and said she was very impressed with the manner in which the clinic treats patients. For more information about HCP or the cribbage tournament, contact at White at debwhite93@hotmail.com or call 651-263-4442.

HISTORY, from 1A families, living in California when Roosevelt issued the executive order, were incarcerated in an internment camp in Arizona. When World War II ended, Tanaka Lucasâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; relatives, like many who had been incarcerated, had to start over, having lost their property and belongings during internment. None of those of Japanese ancestry incarcerated were charged with espionage or sabotage, and a 1988 federal commission found that the incarceration during World War II was motivated largely by racial prejudice and wartime hysteria. An apology was later issued by Congress and President Ronald Reagan for violations of basic civil liberties and constitutional rights. The local chapter of the Japanese American Citizens League is hosting an array of events in

coming months marking the 75th anniversary of the executive order that led to the internment camps. An art exhibit featuring work by Roger Shimomura is set to open later this month in the Wallace Fine Arts Center at Macalester College in St. Paul, with an opening reception 7-9 p.m. Friday, Jan. 27. A Day of Remembrance ceremony is scheduled for 2 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 19, at the Minnesota History Center auditorium in St. Paul. And in May, a â&#x20AC;&#x153;then and nowâ&#x20AC;? photo exhibit featuring people interned in the camps opens at the Fort Snelling Visitors Center. Tanaka Lucas, who was born in Japan while her father was working for the U.S. Army during the post-war occupation, moved to the Twin Cities in 1970 for graduate school and worked as a family physician for over 30 years before retiring.

She said the aim of the upcoming Japanese American Citizens League events is to raise awareness about the mass incarceration during World War II and to help ensure violations of civil liberties do not happen again to any Americans â&#x20AC;&#x201D; especially now, when concerns about immigrants and the threat of terrorism color the political climate. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really important now to remember this because all of a sudden there are so many things that seem to be in danger of being repeated,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of these things are coming together to potentially jeopardize the constitutional rights Americans have.â&#x20AC;? More about the Japanese American Citizens League events is at www.tcjacl.org. Email Andrew Miller at andrew.miller@ecm-inc.com.

2017 Tips for realizing goals Get to the truth about in the year ahead dieting and weight loss The dawn of a new year represents a chance to start anew and set goals for the months ahead. New Yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s resolutions are often made to provide the motivation people need to improve their lives and make a new year as productive and happy as possible. While people who make New Yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s resolutions fully intend to realize those goals, few actually stick to the game plan. According to researchers at the University of Scranton, just 8 percent of people who make their New Yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s resolutions actually achieve those resolutions. While that might make it seem like the odds are against men and women who have resolved to improve their lives in the year ahead, the following tips can help adults realize their goals for the new year and beyond. - Emphasize time management. Hectic schedules can quickly derail resolutions. Many people want to eat healthier and exercise more but find their time is stretched pretty thin, which can make it difficult to get to the gym or prepare healthy meals at home. Finding ways to manage time more effectively can make it easier to stay committed to New Yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s resolutions. Right down your daily schedule and look for ways to free up time. If you routinely take an hour for lunch each day, use that time to exercise and eat at your desk when you return from your walk, workout or jog. Try to wake up 30 to 60 minutes earlier each morning to exercise, and make use of time before bed by preparing a healthy lunch for the following day. - Make your goals public. By publicly declaring your intention to improve your life, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re putting some positive pressure on yourself to fully commit to your goal. Friends and loved ones can be great sources of support, and once theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re aware of your efforts, you likely wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to let them down. Once you have decided on a resolution, post your shortterm and long-term goals to your Facebook page or let your immediate family and closest friends know of your goals in person. Their encouragement can help you stay on track, and they may even offer to help you realize your goals. - Keep track of your progress. Keep

a resolutions journal or start a blog that allows you to write about your efforts. If your goal is to pay down debt, make a spreadsheet that tracks your progress. That spreadsheet might be more motivational than simply seeing a loan or credit card balance gradually reduce on your monthly statement. Writing about your trials and errors can help others and also provide a great way for you to explore your approach and tinker with it to ensure your ultimate success. - Expect setbacks. If realizing resolutions was easy, the success rate would be greater than 8 percent. Setbacks are inevitable, so donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t allow them to derail your efforts. Even if setbacks occur when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re well on your way to success, regroup and get back on track without getting down on yourself. - Reward yourself. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hesitate to reward yourself as you realize your short-term goals and draw closer to making your long-term goal a reality. For example, if weight loss is your goal and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve adhered to your diet and lost some weight, reward yourself with a favorite meal eaten in moderation. New Yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s resolutions may be difficult to realize, but a few simple strategies can help you achieve your goals and enjoy the fruits of your hard work.

Weight loss is a popular resolution come the new year. But in spite of that popularity, the resolution to lose weight is no small task. When resolving to lose weight, men and women will encounter an abundance of information about dieting and weight loss. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s difficult to know who to believe and to determine which plans will be effective. Research published by Shape magazine says nearly one in three young people embark on a new diet each month, but 45 percent give up after one week, and about half abandon their goals within a month. Data released in the Daily Mail in 2013 said that although one in seven (13 percent) women in the United Kingdom stick to a diet for 13 weeks or more, nearly one in five (19 percent) succumb to their favorite food cravings after a month. Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the magic formula for weight loss? Experts advise that there isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t any. Weight-loss strategies that require fad dieting or restrict certain foods may not produce long-term success. Rather, a lifestyle overhaul is often the most effective weight loss strategy. - Recognize that quick fixes do not work. Drastic weight loss approaches may produce immediate results, but such plans are not sustainable. Drastic plans include certain detoxes and cleanses; diets that eliminate all but a few foods; some prepackaged foods; and food-replacement strategies. Feelings of deprivation or boredom may make people following these diets unsuccessful in the long run. Losing weight means changing oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s food and exercise plans over the long haul. - Eat in regular intervals. Researchers at the National Weight Control Registry offer that spacing food evenly throughout the day is the key to successful,

metabolism will change. Men and women should revisit their recommended caloric intake every few years. In addition, men and women can routinely revisit their exercise routines to determine the efficacy of those routines and alter their workouts to reflect the physical changes their bodies are going through as they age. A personâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first step before dieting or attempting to lose weight should be to consult their physician, who can help men and women achieve their weight loss goals in a way thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s healthy and easy to maintain for years to come.

ISAACS, from 1A Isaacs was among one of the top newsmakers in Dakota County in 2016 as he won on Aug. 9 a seven-way race for a School Board seat, vacated when longtime Board Member Rob Duchscher moved out of the district in March. Isaacs, who was unable to gain a seat in 2015 against three incumbents, won the contest handily as he earned 28 percent of the vote. He outdistanced his closest competitor â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Wendy Brekken â&#x20AC;&#x201C; by 9 percentage points. He said the fact that he ran the previous year was a boost to his campaign as people were familiar with him during the second campaignâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s door-knocking phase. Among the reasons he said voters likely supported him were that he is the parent with school-age children, he represented a diverse perspective as a first-generation immigrant and he earned the endorsement of the teachers union â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Dakota County United Educators.

Isaacs says he wants to address three key issues. He plans to focus on reducing the academic achievement gap between minority and white students, addressing food insecurity and improving community engagement. They are all interrelated, according to Isaacs. Statistics show that many students who are not achieving well in school are minorities receiving free or reduced-price lunches based on federal family income guidelines. Some of these students are coming to school hungry, as poverty in Dakota County has increased along with the percentage of students receiving the free or reduced-price lunches. One district school reported a fourfold increase in such students in the past 10 years. Isaacs says that research shows that students facing food insecurity at home wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be ready to learn at school or continue the learning at home. He advocates for expansion of The Sheridan Story program, which can provide students in need with food to take home in a discrete manner using

DANCE, from 1A dancers, ranging in age from 13 to 18, exposure to all aspects of staging a performance â&#x20AC;&#x201D; including production, fundraising and marketing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They are learning to manage and care for costumes and props, and also learning to do their own makeup and costuming,â&#x20AC;? Sairam said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our hair, makeup and costuming process prior to performance is quite time consuming and complex, and it is good for these young dancers to learn how to manage it themselves.â&#x20AC;? Mavanji and other cast members went through three rounds of auditions for the show. Rehearsals began in August for five to nine hours a day. Since the summer theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been logging three to six hours each week in rehearsals. Following the premiere Jan. 28, Kala Vandanam has planned three Vibha Mavanji and other cast members went through three rounds of auditions additional performances of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ritufor â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ritu-The Seasons.â&#x20AC;? The show, winner of a Knight Foundation grant, The Seasonsâ&#x20AC;? throughout St. Paul is presented by St. Paul-based Kala Vandanam Dance Company. (Photo in 2017.

donated funds of $180 per year per student. The Minneapolis-based nonprofit started working with District 196 two years ago. It has identified 950 district students who are in need of the program. As of November, about 550 students had been sponsored. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is the solvable problem,â&#x20AC;? Isaacs said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With a little bit of support, we can help these kids out of that atmosphere and get them to focus on education.â&#x20AC;? Isaacs says the second way in which the district can close the achievement gap is to find more ways to provide homework help for minority students. Since parents are often addressing multiple issues such as extended work hours, multiple children at home, mealtime and bedtime routines or a language barrier, homework can get lost in the shuffle. Isaacs said after-school homework help in the buildings and at home needs to be expanded. He said the one-to-one iPad initiative makes tools like Facebook and Skype more possible in linking students at home to home-

work helpers throughout the district. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These are the things we must do,â&#x20AC;? he said. That leads Isaacs into his third initiative, which is to increase community engagement. It starts with getting all parents involved in their childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s education and extends to making sure support staff and community members assist in creating a culture where learning is valued. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ultimately for the success of the kids, the key stakeholders need to be invested,â&#x20AC;? Isaacs said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the whole-child initiative, each stakeholder needs to do their part to help students attain the best life they can, achieve their goals and reach their potential. Learning doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t start and stop in the classrooms. It happens throughout (the day).â&#x20AC;? He said there are many retired people in the district who could serve as ideal homework helpers, and the recruitment of volunteers needs to increase. Isaacs is taking to the coffee shops and other sites throughout the district to do his part in in-

Background

manager of clinical assessments at NCS Pearson is the only School Board member with children currently in district schools. His oldest daughter is a first-grade student at Glacier Hills Elementary School of Arts and Sciences and his youngest is still in preschool. He said this will also bring a different perspective as a parent whose children are on the receiving end of instruction. He also has the perspective of a parent who recently made the choice to move into District 196 because of the schools. He said it was the districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s triple A philosophy of educating students well-rounded in the arts, athletic and academics that attracted them. To see the AAA in action, Isaacs is on a quest to spend a day in every district school in the 2016-17 calendar year. He had visited six out of 31 as of mid-December. He said so far heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been impressed with the learner-centered environment in the classrooms with a non-commoditized of imparting education that finds the best way for each student to learn. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of the things I have seen is the personal investment,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have been deeply impressed at the personal accountability that our teachers take for each of their kids. â&#x20AC;Ś It shows the amount of depth of caring that educators have and the responsibility they feel in trying to make each one of our kids live up to their fullest potential.â&#x20AC;? Isaacs said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hoping the kinds of successful strategies and efforts being made by teachers become shared throughout the district. As one example he saw four English composition students working on a joint writing project where each student wrote a part of a larger work. While each student had to write their own piece, that had to collaborate in real time using Google Docs to ensure the different pieces worked together as a whole. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This shows the students that critical thinking is a process and used not just in science or mathematics,â&#x20AC;? Isaacs said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Projects like this, this is excellence, this is a worldclass education. â&#x20AC;Ś This gives our students global readiness to go out in the world with a competitive advantage.â&#x20AC;?

Though Isaacs is not the first person with a diverse racial background elected to the board â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Board Member Art Coulson is part Native American â&#x20AC;&#x201C; he is a visible minority in his complexion and accent. He said the symbolism of that is important. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Young people should be able to look at positions of leadership and see that diversity,â&#x20AC;? Isaacs said. As a first-generation immigrant, Isaacs said he will bring a different way of thinking to board discussions. His perspective of many times being the only minority in a classroom or even an entire town, as was the case in the small Wisconsin town he spent his college summers at, he says will result in better policymaking. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The robustness of the discussion will result in better outcomes for our children,â&#x20AC;? he said. When Isaacs was growing up in India, he was being groomed to work in the successful retail industry business that was owned by his father. But Isaacs said he wanted to do something different. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s when he embarked on his quest to become an American college student, where he landed at Winona State. The school had made the best scholarship offer, which he had to earn to keep by maintaining a high grade-point average. In school, he met his future wife, earned a bachelorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s degree in business and went on to receive a Master of Business Administration from the University of St. Thomas. He said his view of numbers through the lens of economics will allow him to see the story behind the statistics and strategies to address problems.

He encourages district residents to offer their views, suggestions or talk about their experiences with the district during his monthly listening sessions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These ideas will happen when there is more free-flowing dialogue,â&#x20AC;?

Sports Lightning, Eagle teams stay in conference races by Mike Shaughnessy SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Eastview and Apple Valley remained tied for first place in South Suburban Conference girls basketball after both teams won league games Tuesday night. Both teams needed second-half comebacks to improve to 4-0 in conference play. Eastview, after trailing 18-13 at halftime, rallied to beat Shakopee 42-39 at home. Apple Valley scored 33 points in the second half of a 55-47 victory at Rosemount. Lakeville North routed Prior Lake 81-57 on Tuesday, knocking the Lakers out of a tie for first in the league. North is now third in the conference at 4-1. Eastview (10-2 overall) got 10 points from Megan Walstad and seven each from Macy Guebert and Lauren Glas in its victory over Shakopee.

Eastview goalie Ben Beattie makes a save against Prior Lake during a South Suburban Conference boys hockey game Jan. 5. Miranda Crenshaw and Emma Carpenter scored six points each. The Lightning’s balance offset the performance of Shakopee forward Mateya Hut-

ton, whose 21 points were more than half her team’s total. Junior forward Brynne Rolland scored 19 points in Apple Valley’s victory at Rosemount. Lyndsey Robson added 11 for the Eagles, 11-1 overall. Rosemount guard Maddy Olson had a game-high 21 points. Eastview plays host to Prior Lake on Thursday and Eagan on Friday. Apple Valley’s next game is at Prior Lake on Friday night. The conference coleaders’ first game against each other is Jan. 27 at Eastview. Eastview was second and Apple Valley fourth in last week’s state Class 4A rankings released by Minnesota Basketball News.

Gable Steveson, ranked first nationally at 285 pounds, dominated his weight class and three other Eagles wrestlers finished in the top five. Montini Catholic, an Illinois school ranked 27th nationally by InterMat Wrestling, scored 527 points to win the tournament. Mount Carmel, Illinois, was second with 507. Twenty-sixth-ranked Kasson Mantorville (481), 33rd-ranked Apple Valley (467) and 24th-ranked Lockport Township of Illinois (457) completed the top five. Steveson, a two-time state high school championand two-time Cadet World champion, ran his record to 23-0 with five victories in the Cheesehead Invitational. He won all five matches by fall, and only one of his opponents made it to the second period. He was on the mat for less than seven minutes in the five matches. Steveson pinned Blaze Beltran of Pewaukee, Wisconsin, in 2:36 in the final. It was the first loss of the season for Beltran, who took a 21-0 record into the match. Kyle Rathman won six of his eight matches at 138 to place fourth. Sebas Swiggum won four of seven matches at 132 to place

fifth. Tyler Kim was fifth at 195, winning five of his eight matches. Adam Mickelson placed 10th at 120, Tony Watts finished eighth at 160, Jalen Thul was seventh at 170, Jonah Johnson was 10th at 182 and Tanyi Besong was eighth at 220 for the Eagles, who wrestle at Lakeville South in a South Suburban Conference match at 7 p.m. Thursday.

Eastview Eastview senior Alex Lindstrom earned his 150th career victory last Friday as the Lightning beat Chaska/Chanhassen 58-10 and Faribault 37-31 in a non-conference triangular last week. Lindstrom, 15-1 overall and ranked third in Class 3A at 170 pounds, got the milestone victory by pinning Faribault’s Rene Villata. Lindstrom is nine victories from breaking his school’s career record. Mike Delich, ranked second in Class 3A at 195, improved to 12-0 by pinning both of his opponents in the triangular. Mason Enderlien (15-5 at 106 pounds), Brendan Formaneck (16-3 at 152) and Dane McDevitt (15-2 at 220) also went undefeated in the triangular. The Lightning, ranked 12th in Class 3A, wrestles at Lakeville North at 7 p.m. Thursday and will compete at the Mounds View Duals at 9 a.m. Saturday.

a goal and two assists. Lightning goalie Ben Beattie stopped all 18 shots he faced. Prior Lake barely held off an Eastview comeback in the teams’ Jan. 5 game. The Lakers led 4-0 after two periods, but Eastview (6-5 overall) scored three times in 2 minutes, 32 seconds to get back into the game. Prior Lake did not secure its victory until scoring an empty-net goal with 19 seconds remaining. Noah Lindner, Tyler Kukowski and Jesse Fan scored third-period goals for Eastview. Thursday’s games could shake up the South Suburban Conference standings as league-leading Lakeville North (5-1-1 in the SSC) plays at Lakeville South (5-2), while Eastview (4-2 SSC) goes to Burnsville (4-1-1). Those are four of the top five teams in the conference race.

Notebook: Coaching futures up in the air by Mike Shaughnessy SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Coaches changing addresses in the off-season is a fact of college football life, and in the coming weeks it could affect a couple of people with local ties. Matt Simon, an All-State and Academic All-State receiver at Farmington High School in the early 2000s, was receivers coach for the Western Michigan team that went 13-1 last season and played in the Cotton Bowl on Jan. 2. As anybody with even a passing interest in University of Minnesota football knows by now, Western Michigan head coach P.J. Fleck was named to the same position with the Gophers last week. What that means for Simon isn’t clear yet. As of Wednesday, Western Michigan had not announced a replacement for Fleck. A Detroit News story referred to Simon as possibly the top internal candidate for the head coaching job. But in a list of potential candidates published by MLive, a media group that includes eight Michigan daily newspapers, Simon wasn’t mentioned. Simon, 31, played college football at Northern Illinois; former Minnesota head coach Jerry Kill was Northern Illinois coach in Simon’s senior year. He coached at Northern Illinois, the University of St. Thomas, and Rutgers before joining the Western Michigan staff in 2014. He has been described as having a personality similar to Fleck’s, and drew praise from Fleck

for his recruiting ability. Fleck has spots to fill on his Minnesota staff, although he told WCCO Radio he hoped to have that completed by Thursday. He has hired Kirk Ciarrocca as offensive coordinator and Ed Warinner as offensive line coach. Ciarrocca was Fleck’s offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at Western Michigan, while Warinner coached at Ohio State last season. It’s likely that Lakeville native Jay Johnson, the Gophers’ offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach in 2016, is moving on. Johnson was offensive coordinator the previous five years at Louisiana, one of five colleges where he’s held that job.

The Burnsville, Eagan, Lakeville and ISD 196 teams will be in a South Suburban Conference sprint meet Saturday at Valleywood Golf Course. The varsity competition, which begins at 9 a.m., will have individual and team components.

Team USA went 7-0 in the International Ice Hockey Federation World Junior Championships that concluded last week in Montreal. The U.S. won its final two games in shootouts, defeating Russia 4-3 in the semifinals and Canada 5-4 in the gold medal game. Burnsville High School graduate and St. Cloud State University defenseman Jack Ahcan played in all seven Team USA games, scoring one point and earning a plus-3 rating. Lakeville native Jake Oettinger, a goalie at Boston University, made the U.S. roster but did not play. Burnsville native Brock Boeser, a sophomore at North Dakota, was named to the preliminary roster but withdrew after having wrist surgery.

Skiers from Eagan and Burnsville won three of the four individual races at the Loppet Invite high school Nordic skiing meet Saturday at Wirth Park. Eagan’s Patrick Acton won the 5-kilometer boys freestyle race in 10 minutes, 18.29 seconds. His teammate, Ryan Steger, was first in the classic race in 11:30.52.

Gold Invitational at the University of Minnesota Aquatic Center. Fifty-eight teams from Minnesota, Wisconsin and North Dakota competed in four divisions in Saturday’s meet. Rosemount and Lakeville South had the top finishes of the local teams, placing

fifth in their divisions.

Maroon Division Rosemount placed fifth of 14 teams in a division won by Eau Claire Memorial/North of Wisconsin. The Irish got a first place in diving from senior Stephen Satnik, who

scored 241.75 points, about 16 more than the runner-up. Grant Toenges, a junior, was second in the 200 butterfly in 55.59, and sophomore Cody Spaeth was fourth in the 500 freestyle in 5:10.85.

Burnsville hotel wins top honor Best Western has made complete turnaround by John Gessner SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Built in 1985, the old Holiday Inn Burnsville was a shiny new object in a fast-growing suburb, part of the County Road 42 commercial boom that followed Burnsville Center’s opening years earlier. “To get the banquet space and a restaurant and bar and all the amenities that make a hotel a full-service hotel was something the community very much wanted,” recalled former City Council Member and Mayor Dan McElroy. But the hotel, in a five-story, two-tone brick building overlooking the junction of interstates 35E and 35W, drifted into disrepair in the 2000s. Further buffeted by recession and low occupancy, Holiday Inn Burnsville was one of a number of Minnesota lodging properties that eventually went back to the bank. In 2010 it became a reclamation project for new owner Blithe Hospitality Group, which had bought the old Super 8 Hotel in

Lakeville and transformed it into Holiday Inn Lakeville and Rudy’s Redeye Grill. Six years and several million dollars later, Burnsville’s flagship hotel has completed its turnaround with high honors. Now the Best Western Premier Nicollet Inn, it’s been named 2016 Large Property of the Year by the Minnesota Lodging Association. “Customer care — that’s always been our differentiator, and that comes back to the people,” said Nathan Kremer, who came to Holiday Inn Burnsville as a bartender in 2002 and has been general manager of the Best Western since 2013. “A hotel’s a lot of moving parts.” The award, for hotels of at least 100 rooms, honors outstanding service that exceeds customer expectations, industry leadership and community involvement, said McElroy, now the president and CEO of Hospitality Minnesota, which includes the state’s lodging, restaurant and resort and campground associations. The Burnsville hotel is one of two Best Westerns in Minnesota with the “Premier” branding, which denotes the finest ameni-

ties and service among the chain’s three tiers of properties. “It’s a pretty tall order in terms of things like bathroom amenities, granite countertops, the standards for shower and tub enclosures, the standards for televisions and carpeting and finishings and furniture,” McElroy said. “I can’t think of another hotel in the south metro that’s at that level or that standard,” he said. The principals of Blithe Hospitality Group are Ron and Jamie Dahlen. Jamie was catering manager at the Holiday Inn Burnsville when she hired Kremer in 2002. He later married the Dahlens’ youngest daughter, Jessica. “I lead with a sales foot and a customer service foot,” Kremer said. “I’ve done everything within the building. I started off as a bartender. I’ve been a bar manager. I’ve been a server. We really strive to take care of people. And I think one of the keys to anything like that is (organizational) culture.” After Blithe bought the property, it was renamed the Nicollet Inn for about six months before a deal with Best Western was sealed, Kremer said. “Those were the wild

Nathan Kremer, general manager of the Best Western Premier Nicollet Inn, started working at the hotel in 2002 when it was the Holiday Inn Burnsville. (Photo by John Gessner) days,” he said. “But it was also that stuff that brought us closer together in the culture. That’s the stuff you can’t describe to people. I’ve got people here who will do anything for a customer or anything for me, because we’ve seen the bottom. We’ve seen when we only had 15 people in the hotel. We saw what people said about the place.” Still “at the top of its game” in 2002 and 2003, the property spent subsequent years in decline, leaving many corporate clients “with a bad taste in their mouth over the Holiday Inn name here in town,” Kremer said. “That’s why we had a lot of work to do,” he said. The Premier upgrades included cutting the number of rooms from 144 to 131, increasing the number of suites from four to 15 and making the top level an “executive floor” for higher-end clients. Holiday Inn’s old restaurant, the Dakota County Steakhouse, was refashioned as Morgan’s on

Nicollet, and later — with a consultant’s advice — as Morgan’s Farm to Table, which buys from a group of Minnesota farmers. Morgan’s Farm to Table won the Bite of Burnsville’s People’s Choice Award in 2015 and 2016 and the Bite’s 2015 Chef’s Choice Award. It won Favorite Food Item at the Taste of Lakeville in 2015 and 2016. While many in the community know the restaurant, Kremer said the hotel’s overnight clientele is largely corporate, culled in part from big firms with operations in Burnsville, including UTC Aerospace Systems, Bosch Communication Systems and Frontier Communications. “The numbers show that about 80 percent of our business is a Sundayto-Thursday stay,” he said. “And that 80 percent tells you it’s a corporate clientele.” As a board member of Experience Burnsville (formerly the Convention and Visitors Bureau), Kremer is well-versed in the

city’s entire lodging market across nine properties, from his to the economypriced hotels on Burnsville Parkway west of I-35W. Overall, the city has modestly priced lodging, Kremer said. “Burnsville, as a whole, has one of the lowest ADRs — average daily rates — of the whole Twin Cities,” he said. “But the reason we have that is because of the mix of hotels that we have. That’s what our differentiator is, too — we’re the only full-service hotel.” He’s proud of his hotel’s ratings with sometimes unforgiving online reviewers. Users of Trip Advisor have made the Best Western Premier Nicollet Inn the fifth-rated hotel among 240 in the metro area and the 11th-rated in Minnesota, according to Kremer. “Trip Advisor is the biggest review site out there right now,” he said. “That we’ve stayed in the top five over the six years we’ve been open is a testament to what we’re doing.”

SUN THISWEEK - Apple Valley January 13, 2017 15A

Thisweekend Story of cycling champion revisited in brothersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; book â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Major Taylorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; co-author to speak Jan. 17 at Robert Trail Library by Andrew Miller SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Though heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no longer a household name, Marshall â&#x20AC;&#x153;Majorâ&#x20AC;? Taylor was among the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most popular athletes in his heyday more than a century ago. Two Twin Cities area brothers, Conrad Kerber and Terry Kerber, have chronicled the life of the champion cyclist â&#x20AC;&#x201D; including the African-American athleteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s many encounters with discrimination in the predominantly white sport â&#x20AC;&#x201D; in their book â&#x20AC;&#x153;Major Taylor.â&#x20AC;? Terry Kerber is set to speak at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 17, at Rosemountâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Robert Trail Library as part of the ongoing â&#x20AC;&#x153;Meet the Authorâ&#x20AC;? series presented by the Rosemount Area Arts Council. Admission is free to the talk. He spoke with this newspaper recently about the genesis of the book and why he and his brother found the story of Taylor so compel-

ling. Q: Why was the story of Major Taylor one you wanted to tell? A: We Terry Kerber wanted to tell the Major Taylor story because when we delved into his history and that of early bicycle racing in general, 18901910, we couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe how much money those athletes made and how popular the sport was. It was a regular occurrence to have 30,000-50,000 fans pay to watch Taylor race. As early as 1899, when Taylor was only 21 years old, he was turning down more money for three months than Ty Cobb made in baseball 16 years later. In the years 1903-1904 Taylor made between $40,000 and $50,000. To put this in context, Babe Ruth did not sign a $20,000 contract until 1920. We were fascinated to

learn Taylor turned ed down enormous sums ms of money because as a devout Christian n he refused to race on n Sundays. Q: You co-au-thored the book with h your brother, Con-rad. How did you divide up the research and writing? A: My brother did most of the writing and I did most of the research. Since much of the content came to us from France and Germany, we had to have that material translated into English before we could even read it. It was quite a process, taking over five years to complete. Q: You and your brother are both senior partners at a Twin Cities investment firm. How did you come to write a book about a sports great of yesteryear?

A: Conrad and I both enjoy cycling, history and writing. One day while searching online for an antique bicycle I saw a sound-bite article on Taylor and shared

it with Conrad. We were both h hooked and obssessed with how tthis story never h hit the radar iin the genre of aall-time greatest aathlete stories. W We hope to see a major motion pi picture made on hi his life someday â&#x20AC;&#x201D; he certainly de deserves to be be better known. Q: Was com competitive cyclin cling considerably dif different in Major Tay Taylorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s era than it is today, in terms of equipment, trac tracks, or speeds? A: Competitive cycl cycling during Taylorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s era was a differen ferent sport. What comes to mind to most people is the Tour de France or long-distance, multi-day races with teams competing. In Taylorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s day, the sport was track racing on out-

door or indoor velodromes, which were found in most major cities worldwide. Taylor and the other cyclists were famous sprinters â&#x20AC;&#x201D; which meant short races from a half-mile to two miles in length. Traveling at 40plus mph on steeply banked tracks was fast, dangerous and deadly. Between 1890 and 1927 at least 47 racers were killed on velodrome tracks and many others seriously wounded and no longer able to earn their livelihood. Because Taylor was AfricanAmerican, there was much animosity toward him and his competitors often threatened his life â&#x20AC;&#x201D; literally. Q: Do you have any other book projects in the works? A: No other books in the works â&#x20AC;&#x201D; it would be very hard to find another subject as interesting as the life of Major Taylor. Email Andrew Miller at andrew.miller@ecm-inc.com.

MASH relocates to Eagan Baseball training facility, gym expands by Andy Rogers SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

All that Minnesota MASH needs is a big warehouse full of weights, rowing machines, training tables, batting cages, baseball bats and squat racks. After five years in business and with a growing client base, the training facility needed more space, so the Minnesota MASH Baseball Club and MASH Performance facility moved into a new facility in Eagan last November. About a year ago, the owners felt they had outgrown their location in Burnsville, but a zoning issue inspired the move to Eagan. The owners said they would have needed to apply for a conditional use permit for the place they were looking at in Burnsville, which would have taken months to approve, so they decided to look

elsewhere. Owners set up shop in Eagan within a building that already houses Gleasonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Gymnastics School and found no zoning issue for the gym. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think it all worked out better in the end,â&#x20AC;? said owner and founder Tom Buske. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a much larger location than the one in Burnsville, where they had three batting cages to work with. In February the facility will open up another portion of the building, which includes five more batting cages, bringing them up to a total of nine. The new location off highways 77 and 13 at 2025 Silver Bell Road works well for their clients. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really easy for all our families to get to,â&#x20AC;? owner Steve McGuiggan said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a hotbed for baseball compared to the rest of the state. This area has some of the best tal-

ent.â&#x20AC;? The gym essentially houses two different businesses: a baseball club and a performance facility. The Minnesota MASH Baseball Club provides services for 10- to 18-yearold players as well as collegiate and professional baseball players. They have about 18 select baseball teams who play during the offseason. During the high school season, many MASH gym mates go on to play with their high school teams. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll go to games and thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like 18 guys who know each other between the two teams,â&#x20AC;? McGuiggan said. The elite 17-and-under team plays all over the country and features a number of Division 1 prospects. MASH has worked with several area baseball prospects who went on to play baseball at the colle-
