Missing Burnsville woman’s body found by John Gessner SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

On Monday, Anarae Schunk’s friend and former chess coach agonized over the slightest hope that the missing 20-yearold Burnsville woman, whom police feared had been murdered, might be found alive. “This is just a very nightmarish period for the chess program and for Burnsville and for her family and for myself,” said Brian Ribnick, chess

coach at Metcalf Junior High, where Schunk was the most accomplished female player in school history. “It just goes on and on.” Some finality came Tuesday, when Rosemount police announced that a body found Monday had been identified by the Hennepin County medical examiner as Schunk’s. The announcement capped an effort that included police searches and numerous search parties around Dakota County arranged by

Chuck Tindell’s new book isn’t quite so new. “Grandpa’s Legacy,” a novel that draws from the Apple Valley author’s high school experiences, was published earlier this year by Second Wind Publishing – more than three decades after Tindell began work Chuck on it. “I wrote Tindell the first draft in 1982 – I wrote it, put it aside, wrote some more, sent it out to publishers, but no one was taking it so I put it in a drawer,” he said. “A couple years ago I pulled it out and revised it, and then it was published. That should give hope to would-be authors.” While “Grandpa’s Legacy” was Tindell’s first writing project, it wasn’t the first book of his that saw print. After he shelved “Grandpa’s Legacy,” he subsequently wrote two inspirational books on aging – “Seeing Beyond the Wrinkles” and “The Enduring Human Spirit” – as well as a series of mysteries centered on a trio of sleuths running a Minneapolis detective agency. Writing has been a sideline for Tindell, a Lutheran minister who moved to Apple Valley with his wife Carol in 1973. Tindell served as senior pastor at Christus Victor Lutheran Church in Apple Valley for 20 years before signing on as director of pastoral care at the Minnesota Masonic Home, a senior care facility. After retiring from the Masonic Home, Tindell has worked part-time as a visitation pastor for Apple Valley’s Shepherd of the LuSee TINDELL, 11A

Workers evacuated after gas leak Natural gas line leak temporarily shuts down Progressive Rail by Laura Adelmann SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

A natural gas line leak shut down operations at Progressive Rail in Lakeville for almost four hours Tuesday, Oct. 1. The building was evacuated from 9:30 a.m. until about 1 p.m. after a tree spade truck transplanting some trees hit a 2-inch gas line that Lakeville fire Chief Mike Meyer said was buried about 3 or 4 feet underground. “The company had a locate, and the locating crew missed it,” Progressive Rail President Dave

Fellon said. Meyer said a Lakeville police officer and 10 firefighters in two fire trucks responded, as well as a crew from Minnesota Energy Resources and a gas technician who worked to repair the line. Firefighters evacuated the Progressive Rail building and Highview Avenue, which was shut down temporarily from the rail company’s south entrance to 219th Street, until about 11:15 a.m. Meyer said there was no fire and the building was fine. He said employees were

instructed to leave without turning on or off their cell phones, building lights, computers or any other electrical equipment. Power to the building remained on during the event. “There is a potential that just by shutting it off you could cause a spark,” Meyer said. The wind was blowing gas from the leak toward the building, and Progressive Rail workers were not allowed to start their vehicles in the parking lot for fear of an explosion. Employees were kept next door in the neigh-

boring parking lot of the Wausau Supply Company until they were cleared to enter at around 1 p.m. “We’re scrambling getting caught up here,” Fellon said. “We haven’t had access to our computers or anything all morning.” Meyer said anyone who smells a gas leak should not touch any electronics or turn off any lights, but immediately go outside. He said to call 911 from outside the building to avoid creating any spark that could ignite the gas.

Eagan home damaged in early morning fire An early morning fire severely damaged an Eagan home today. Eagan firefighters responded at 4:46 a.m. to house fire at the 500 block of Spruce Street and found the entire attic was engulfed in flames.

Light rail project deserves to go forward The Southwest Light Rail project, if built, will be the state’s most costly public works project ever. For around $1.4 billion, 15 miles of light rail track, tunnels, stations and bridges will be constructed across the southwest Twin Cities metropolitan area, from Minneapolis, through St. Louis Park, Hopkins and Minnetonka, ending in Eden Prairie. Countless meetings, hearings and planning sessions have been held throughout the region during the past year. A key decision on this piece of track, an extension of the Green Line, is now only weeks away. Decision makers and residents are at odds over a small piece of the route in St. Louis Park. A committee of local mayors and Metropolitan Council officials is expected to make a recommendation next week to Met Council Chair Susan Haigh. Once the route location is solidified, Haigh has the formidable task of convincing the state Legislature to fund 10 percent of the project — $140 million. Metro counties will need to approve 40 percent of the cost — about $560 million. The Obama Administration has promised federal funding to cover the other half, if local and state ducks are in a row. Construction could start in 2015. Commuters, shoppers, workers and tourists could be riding a completed

ECM Editorial Green Line by 2018, traveling from Eden Prairie, to downtown Minneapolis, to the University of Minnesota and onto downtown St. Paul. Is it worth it? We believe it is. But perhaps more importantly is recognizing that the Southwest Light Rail line is just one spoke in a master plan for transportation throughout the metropolitan center and Greater Minnesota. The Metropolitan Council, State Department of Transportation, counties and cities have been working together to plan for the future. Officials have been addressing infrastructure issues, bridge safety, highway maintenance, and this year added Metro Red Line bus rapid transit from Apple Valley to the Mall of America in planning toward the future. Transportation Commissioner Charles Zelle estimates it will cost $50 billion to maintain the state’s roads, bridges, airports and transit systems over the next 20 years. Current funding mechanisms will generate $18 billion. This does not include expansion of existing highways or building new highways. But it’s a critical and necessary investment to maintain the safe movement of

products and people throughout Minnesota. Manufacturers like Larson Boats in Little Falls depend on the state’s roadways to transport boats to numerous destinations. The same can be said of Flint Hills Resources in Rosemount, Northern Tool + Equipment in Burnsville, Uponor in Apple Valley and other businesses in Dakota County. State planners and demographers are also looking at the future, expecting another 900,000 people in the Twin Cities by 2040. Half of that anticipated housing growth in the metro will be senior citizen housing. Anyone who has ridden the subways in New York City or the Metro in Washington, D.C., understands how a light rail system can quickly move thousands of people through highly populated areas. A light rail system is expensive to build but will ease traffic on main thoroughfares in the cities and suburbs. Zelle called light rail a 100-year investment, which will also create new economic clusters of development along the route of the system. We believe the Southwest Light Rail line is a vital spoke in the metro area’s future transportation system and should move ahead. However, we also believe it is essential the state Legislature takes a deep look

into transportation funding for the entire state in the coming legislative session. Serious consideration needs to be given to gas tax increases and a metro area transit sales tax surcharge. All options need to be on the table for an in-depth and bipartisan analysis of our transportation needs and funding the necessary maintenance for the next several decades. The challenge is huge: How can we properly fund our transportation system — and keep our roads and bridges safe for years to come? How can we be fair to Morrison County and to Houston County, while meeting the needs of a metropolitan area of 4 million people? A statewide conversation on transportation needs for all 87 counties must be high on the agenda for the 2014 legislative session. States with strong transportation systems will have a decided edge in the next half century, not just from an economic standpoint, but also as an aesthetic attraction. Minnesota must be a state that gets this right. And it all starts with a solid plan and proper funding. This is an opinion of the ECM Editorial Board.

Solutions, not brinkmanship will help us through difficult times by Mike Obermueller SPECIAL TO SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Last week, as I’ve done for several years, I volunteered to speak with the political science class at Eagan High School regarding what it’s like to run for elected office. As expected, I got thoughtful questions from bright, curious students. They wanted to know how much time I spent campaigning and what issues were important to me, but they also wanted to know why Congress spent so much time fighting about everything. It occurred to me that these students, mostly high school seniors, had never known a time when most members in Congress considered it their job to vigorously debate important issues, but then put aside partisanship to find reasonable solutions to the challenges we face. In his guest column last week, U.S. Rep. John Kline, R-Burnsville, admitted

Guest Columnist

Mike Obermueller that “far too often, partisan bickering and petty politics dominate the headlines from Washington.” What Kline failed to acknowledge, however, is that “partisanship” and “pettiness” dominate the headlines because they dominate the political discourse in Washington. This shutdown is a prime example of how hyper-partisanship leads to irresponsible decisions. Everyone knows we need to focus on growing and stabilizing our economy. The government shutdown is completely at odds with this goal. While members of

Congress will survive the shutdown without missing a paycheck, not everyone will be so lucky. An estimated 800,000 workers are being sent home. Millions of Americans – from children to disabled veterans – could see some of the services they rely on suspended or delayed. The national economy stands to lose billions of dollars per week. All this, while we still have 11 million unemployed Americans and even more who are underemployed. I’m sure cable news will spend plenty of time discussing and debating who’s to blame for the federal government shutdown, but in the end, it comes down to representatives who chose partisanship over everything else. We can’t run a government if the focus is on political games and on which party wins and which party loses. We need to be talking about how we go forward instead. The House should pass a resolution that puts the federal government back

to work. That’s it. No poison pills. No political statements. No grandstanding on the idea of defunding the Affordable Care Act. Then, Congress should get to work putting together appropriation bills that reflect our shared priorities, rather than looking for the next place to engage in political brinkmanship. Next year, when those high school students are old enough to vote, I hope they vote for someone who is willing to meet the challenge of doing the right thing for the middle class and our economy – even when it means standing up to his own party leadership. Then they won’t have representatives putting the livelihood of millions of Americans at risk, just so they can win a political fight. Mike Obermueller, a former DFL state representative from Eagan, is a candidate for Congress in Minnesota’s 2nd District. Columns reflect the opinion of the author.

Letters Kline opposes reclassification of home health workers To the editor: People are criticizing U.S. Rep. John Kline, RBurnsville, because he opposes the reclassification of home health workers so they can receive a minimum wage and possible overtime pay. Kline thinks that raising the wage rate of such workers, the ones who care for our elderly and ill, will cause some people to have to go to institutions and then not receive home care. Be fair. Kline does support a minimum wage. Unfortunately, his minimum is a lot lower, like 50 cents or a dollar an hour. He believes anyone who works at such a simple task of taking care of old or sick people should only receive a simple wage, like that of a 10-year-old babysitter. This is care of our parents and grandparents we’re talking about. These workers don’t deserve a reasonable wage, or any-

Also, the 10th Amendment states “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.” Why do we send tax money to Washington, D.C., just to have some of it returned to education in Minnesota?

Former ‘Miss Lakeville’ now a director, puppeteer by Laura Adelmann SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

A former Lakeville Parks and Recreation puppeteer has gone pro, and is bringing her act back to town for one last community event before winter hibernation. Laura Wilhelm, a 1997 Lakeville High School graduate and now artistic director with Mad Munchkin Productions, will bring her team of puppeteers to Lakeville on Oct. 25 for two professional shows they will perform at the home of her parent’s neighbors at 17699 Lake Oak Circle. “We conceived the whole project as a way to draw people together around an arts event,� Wilhelm said. Funded through a $5,000 Clean Water, Land and Legacy Amendment grant, “The Spooky Spectacular and Harvest Hullabaloo� will feature two shows in Lakeville; it will also be performed in five other communities. “The Great Candy Caper� starts at 6:30 p.m. and is an all-ages story aimed at 3- to 12-year-olds about a group of monsters’ annual Halloween Pageant that is sabotaged by a mysterious candy thief. Wilhelm described it as “spirited,� and filled with visual fun that will keep viewers interested. “Late Night with Pumpkin Headerman�

starts at 8 p.m. and is a monster-filled riff on latenight talk shows. It includes a ghost pirate comedian, an undead musical guest and is aimed at ages 12 and up. Wilhelm said that play involves humor for slightly older tastes but would not be offensive to younger ears. While the event is free and host Joanne Mosier said refreshments will follow each show, Wilhelm is encouraging people to bring non-glass, nonperishable food donations that will be taken to Second Harvest Heartland. Wilhelm, a former Miss Lakeville, first “got hooked� on puppetry as a teen working for the Lakeville Parks and Recreation Department’s Puppet Wagon from ages 17-19. She was involved in theater in junior and senior high school, performed with Giant Step Theater and studied theater in college. She started directing as a junior. A trip to Europe opened her eyes to the numerous forms of puppetry going on around the world, and when she returned she began to focus her education on puppetry. “In general-ed classes, I wrote about puppetry,� she said. She earned a master’s degree in directing at the University of Memphis and focused on puppetry

Laura Wilhelm, a 1997 Lakeville North High School graduate, and her husband Alan Pagel will bring their professional puppet shows to a Lakeville garage, located at 17699 Lake Oak Circle, for a free performance on Friday, Oct. 25. (Photo submitted) in the physical theater forms of mask, mime and clowning. Her first jobs directing took her on the road, working around the country, but she returned to the Twin Cities to be near family where she met her husband Alan Pagel while working on a show at the

Mixed Blood Theater. They formed their Mad Munchkin puppet production business in 2005, and have developed a group of regular cast members. This summer, the group worked together to devise the shows, first making the puppet characters that would be used in both pro-

ductions, then improvising with them to help write the scripts. “We knew we wanted to use the same cast of characters,� Wilhelm said. “We picked Halloween characters because they sounded fun to us.� She made “Sandy Witch,� a play on “sandwich� and a mummy named “Cleo� for Cleopatra. Wilhelm said the event is meant to draw people of all ages for a last outdoor arts event before the snow flies, and to spread her passion for puppetry. She said she is drawn to the art form because puppets have no limitations. “They can defy gravity,� Wilhelm said. “They can do anything, so you can be more creative. There is no end to the amount of imagination you can put into a puppet.� Mosier said she has watched Wilhelm’s imagination bloom over the years. She brought her children to Wilhelm’s Puppet Wagon performances, and Wilhelm would invite Mosier’s daughter over, dress her up “like a princess,� have a tea party and paint her nails. Even Wilhelm’s cabinin-the-woods wedding exuded creativity, where Mosier said Wilhelm wore a “stunning� vintage orange beaded dress and the couple sailed away on a pontoon with “just mar-

ried� signs on the back. Mosier said she is happy to host the event, and is sure there will be room for many to attend. Parking is limited in the cul-de-sac, but there is plenty of room on Layton Path, Mosier said. The play, which will include use of a fog machine, will be performed in the Mosier’s double garage on a raised stage. Audience members are advised to bring chairs and blankets, and since the show will go on, rain or shine, come in weatherappropriate dress. Refreshments will be served after each performance, and cast members and puppets will be eager to greet everyone. Wilhelm said she hopes to make the event a tradition, an idea Mosier supports. “I’d never thought of doing anything like this, but it sounded like fun to me,� Mosier said. “I think it will just be an adventure. It’s unlike anything people have seen before.� For more information, including details about the five other tour stops and a showing at the Heart of the Beast Puppet and Mask Theater or updates in the case of dangerous weather, go to www.madmunchkinproductions. com.

Music was “integral� to the church’s identity, said Elton, who directed the choir for three years and still plays trumpet in the church’s brass choir. The choir is led today by Bruce Becker, a retired Apple Valley High School choral director. The church still offers a traditional worship service, Elton noted, but the appeal of strumming guitars has stuck. “It was a pleasant thing for us and our kids,� Gilje said. “I suppose that contemporary worship dimension continues to this day.� In 1976 the church moved to a newly built sanctuary on The Ridges Campus in Burnsville, across the street from the future site of Fairview Ridges Hospital. It could seat 1,200 to 1,300 for a single service, Elton said. But Gilje never found the big room impersonal. “What struck me from day one was that the front rows filled up before the back rows did,� said Gilje, a former Citizens

I think it was that one didn’t feel he was waling down in the full sight of everybody to be gawked at. That was always a characteristic I thought was so pleasant.� Still growing under the direction of senior pastor the Rev. Merv Thompson, the church added an education wing in 1981 and the Christian Life Center — a complex of classrooms, a chapel, a youth center, a library, meeting rooms and offices — in 1987. Thompson, a “gogetter� who served for 22 years and left in 1992, is a key figure in the church’s history, Elton said. Prince of Peace has meant much to the Elton family. Mike and Pat have been on numerous mission trips, from hurricane cleanup in Texas to welldigging and church-building in Tanzania.

He personally shoulders some of the responsibility for the falloff in church membership. “I think a part of it is I’ve tried to get some theological clarity around some issues, and some have not been happy about that — issues of human sexuality, how we handle Scripture, what the mission of the church is,� he said. “I’ve moved the cheese for some, and that’s a challenge for some people, but it has opened the doors for other people.� When the ELCA decided in 2009 to repeal its ban on non-celibate homosexual clergy, some parishioners left Prince of Peace because he didn’t take a stand against the denomination’s vote, Marian said. Now, with the legalization of gay marriage in Minnesota, the congregation is discussing whether to perform same-sex marriages. Marian is recommending to the church’s board of directors that it allow its three pastors (a fourth will be ordained in January) to perform the marriages if they choose. “It’s now in (the board’s) hands to make that decision,� Marian said. “They are being very See CHURCH, 7A

Scaring up some fun Haunted Woods Trail returns to Rosemount by Tad Johnson SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Treat or treating these days is hard work. Walking through neighborhoods for blocks and blocks may yield a pretty good sized bounty of treats, but the Haunted Woods Trail on Saturday, Oct. 26, in Rosemountâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Central Park can yield that haul in one swoop. The 31st annual event, which has taken on different variations and locations, has settled into its basic format of encouraging community groups and businesses to donate their time and candy to put smiles on the faces of countless costumed children. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All of the favorites are back again for this annual event,â&#x20AC;? said Rosemount resident Mike Bouchard, co-chair of the event. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It really doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t change that much from year to year, things just get moved around a bit to keep it fresh.â&#x20AC;? For those who havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t experienced this familyfriendly event, the Haunted Woods Trail will start at 6 p.m. when scores of

children and their families are expected to be lined up already at the west entrance to Central Park near the park-and-ride lot across the street from the Steeple Center. Past estimates have put the attendance total around 3,000. Central Park will be decked out with all manner of Halloween-related decorations, including inflatable ghosts, pumpkins and a Dracula-dressed Homer Simpson along with a part-spooky, partgoofy cemetery and much more. Children and their families stroll along the trail to be met at candy stations staffed by volunteers from local community groups or businesses. Bouchard said the best part of the event is seeing all of the kids smile when they go through the trail. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We hear from a lot of the families that went through the Haunted Woods when it was back in Carrolls Woods behind the high school and how they remember how fun it was,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now these same people are bringing their kids to this event.â&#x20AC;?

Bouchard said an estimated 25 groups volunteer to hand out candy. He said organizations that arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t able to participate may send donations to defray event costs. The eventâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s budget for this year is $2,200, which includes insurance, purchase and/or repair of props, website support, trash removal, balloon rental and candy. Bouchard said without the continued support of donors, this event would not exist. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is amazing how everything comes together for this event,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is a lot of work, but most people get the concept.â&#x20AC;? Those who are unable to participate in the night event are more than welcome to help organize it by attending the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s next meeting at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 8, at the Central Park Shelter. The other big opportunity for volunteers is during the day Oct. 26 when volunteers will set up the props and carve pumpkins to display along the trail. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are always looking for people to help set up, carve pumpkins, hand out

ProAct begins effort to recycle more than 100,000 pounds of plastic bags per year People with disabilities at ProAct sorted thousands of pounds of plastic bags for recycling after taking collections from area businesses, condominiums and ProActâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s assembly and packaging operation. These were assembled and compacted for the first semi-truck load ship-

ment from ProActâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Eagan facility late in September. It was bound for a Virginia destination, and, ultimately, for use in new products. ProAct production coordinator Jennifer Cavalier said plastic sorting is some of the best work for individuals with disabilities, and helps people

to enhance their fine and gross motor skills. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They work more effectively, and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re productive,â&#x20AC;? she said. As material collections continue to rise, she estimates the nonprofit will be able to ship about 20,000 pounds of plastic for recycling every 7 to 10 weeks.

The recycling effort is connected with the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in the Bagâ&#x20AC;? shrink film and plastic bag recycling program led by the Recycling Association of Minnesota. ProActâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mission is to serve individuals experiencing barriers to employment and self-sufficiency due to intellectual and developmental disabilities, physical disabilities, mental health issues, traumatic brain injuries, and other challenges. Learn more at proactinc. org.

Dakota County Lumber to expand Ownership will remain in the family by Jennifer Chick SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Dakota County Lumber’s fall will be one of transition as the Farmington family-owned business builds a new addition and turns over leadership to the next generation. The business broke ground on its new 2,400-square-foot addition at the end of August. Walls were expected to be taking shape last week. Once it is finished, the current offices will move into the new space, with room for a conference room and break room. Then the older part will be remodeled into showroom space. Dakota County Lumber is currently owned and managed by Steve Finden, who started the business in December 1984 with a dream and seed money from an inheritance. He had moved away from his hometown of Farmington, working his way up through the lumberyard business until one day , he realized customers were looking to him for leadership. Then he decided the time was right to move

back to Farmington and start his own business. “He worked his way up the ranks like a lot of guys in our business do,” said Sunny Bowman, Finden’s daughter. Finden knew he needed to add on to his lumberyard, but with the housing market in a slump the last few years, he put those plans on hold. Now as the economy turns around, it’s time. But as he considered the options, Finden was not sure where to go. Farmington zoning restrictions were making it hard to add on Dakota County Lumber’s current location. Finden also was considering plans to sell the lumberyard and retire. Originally, Finden’s son and daughter were not interested in taking over the family business. But then Bowman, his daughter, started her own business in Charleston, S.C., as a professional organizer and found she loved running a business. She began rethinking her plans to return to the family business but didn’t know how to talk to her dad about it. Then her mom stepped in.

Apple Valley Business Watch offers free training The Apple Valley Business Watch will host free training on CPR and how to use an automated external defibrillator on Oct. 30. Also covered will be first aid tips, when to call 911 and what happens when you do, the Good Samaritan Law and how it applies to you delivering

emergency care. The training session will be offered from 8-10 a.m. Wednesday, Oct. 30, at the Apple Valley Municipal Center. RSVP to or by calling Apple Valley Police Officer Mike Tietz at 952-9532789.

“Mom put us in the car together going up to the cabin and said we needed to talk,” Bowman said. A transition plan grew from there and now Finden plans to be out direct management of the business by January. Bowman has been working at Dakota County Lumber fulltime since last January and will become president of the company when Finden steps back. With a transition plan in place, talk of an addition or other solutions for more space became more frequent. Dakota County Lumber wanted to stay in Farmington but didn’t know where to go. Then an economic development committee in Farmington talked to the lumberyard, asking what the business needed to stay in town. “We’re a hometown lumberyard,” Bowman said. “We cover the whole metro area, but we liked the idea of staying in Farmington.” Dakota County Lumber decided the best solution was an addition at its current location. Farmington approved a variance, and the lumberyard developed plans for an

addition to the south and east of its current building. Bowman said she is enjoying learning all aspects of the company, and she is taking the reins of the new addition project. The new addition will double Dakota County Lumber’s office and showroom space. “Right now, our desks are on top of one another,” Bowman said. “We love the collaborative atmosphere because communication is really key in our business, but when everybody is here, it can get a little loud and be hard to work.” The new design should keep that collaborative atmosphere while also giving people space if they need it. Because Dakota County Lumber is all about improving on what it does best. “We are holding onto our old charm while adding some new ways of doing things,” Bowman said. “We want to bring out the customer experience we have always been known for.” More about the business is at

Sipping soda pop all day can damage teeth The auto mechanic loved his Mountain Dew. While working on cars, the 25-year-old always had an open bottle at his side, said his dentist, Dr. Gary Hildebrandt. The young man would take a sip, put it down and go back to work. “He would do that all day long,” Hildebrandt said. “He would only go through two 20-ounce bottles a day, which wasn’t a lot, but we had to make him dentures. He totally destroyed his teeth.” Dentists like Hildebrandt are sounding the alarm about the damage done to teeth by sugary drinks. Much of the harm is caused by the habit of sipping soda pop all day, said Hildebrandt, director of the Division of Operative Dentistry at the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry. Sugar in soft drinks combines with bacteria in the mouth to create acid that attacks the teeth. Acid in pop also weakens tooth enamel. Besides tooth decay, sugar drinks have been linked to weight gain, obesity and diabetes. About 35 percent of U.S. adults are obese, while 17 per-

cent of children aged 2-19 are obese. Last year, Americans spent $71 billion on carbonated soft drinks and energy drinks, according to Beverage-Digest, an industry newsletter. Soft drinks are the biggest sellers, but energy drinks and bottled water are a growing segment of the market. Soda pop has become a staple of the American diet. About one– half of Americans drink sugar drinks every day, according to the National Center for Health Statistics. Young people are the biggest consumers. Seventy percent of boys aged 2-19 drink sugar drinks on any given day, compared to 60 percent of girls in that age group. Soda pop is so damaging because it’s easy to carry around and sip all day, Hildebrandt said. When people eat or drink at regularly spaced meals during the day, teeth are protected by the natural flow of saliva in the mouth, he said. Saliva contains calcium, which replenishes calcium in the teeth and repairs damage. “If you add to that many episodes of sweets during the

day, then the body can’t keep up and you slowly, gradually lose mineral from the tooth. Gradually a hole forms and that would be a cavity,” he said. Hildebrandt advises patients to switch to sugar-free pop. Carbonic acid in diet pop doesn’t cause cavities, although it can erode teeth, removing protective minerals from the tooth surface, he said. Carbonic acid provides the characteristic soda “fizz.” “We don’t see erosion as big a problem as cavities,” he said. “We make dentures because people get aggressive decay, not because they have erosion.” Erosion can make teeth sensitive. Tooth decay can occur in children as young as infants, said Dr. Kevan Cahow, dentist at Midwest Dental in Eagan. “At that young age, most damage comes from parents giving them sugar water to help them sleep or pacify them,” he said. Water is the safest beverage choice for children and adults, he said. Bottled water has become a popular choice, but it typically isn’t fluoridated. Fluoride is added to most city water sup-

plies to prevent tooth decay. Cahow isn’t concerned about lack of fluoridation because it has the biggest impact before age 8, when permanent tooth crowns are forming. “After age 8, the crowns have already formed and calcified, so internal intake of fluoride won’t have much effect,” he said. The basics of brushing and flossing are keys to good oral health, said Dr. Patricia Braga, dentist at Cahill Dental Cen-

and speech, Assael said. As an example, people who’ve lost their teeth and are fitted with dentures tend to eat fewer healthy, raw foods and eat more processed, fattier foods, which can lead to weight gain and obesity. Oral health exams can also detect problems in the rest of the body, he said. For example, bleeding gums can be a sign of scurvy or vitamin C deficiency, while white patches in the mouth are a symptom of HIV infection. “The mouth is a mirror for everything else that’s going on in the body, the same way ophthalmologists can detect so much systemic disease by looking at the eyes, dermatologists can by looking at the skin,” he said.

that people with diabetes are more susceptible to serious gum disease, which may affect bloodglucose control and contribute to the progression of diabetes, according to the American Diabetes Association. People with diabetes are more susceptible to bacterial infection, with decreased ability to fight bacteria that attack the gums. A British study published earlier this year in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease found bacteria associated with chronic gum disease in the brains of patients diagnosed with dementia. Researchers theorize that the bacteria may travel through the bloodstream and into the brain. The mouth is a gateway to the human body that is vital to eating, breathing

tients’ exposure to mercury, she said. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration considers amalgam fillings safe for adults and children ages 6 and above. High levels of mercury exposure are associated with adverse effects in the brain and kidneys, according to the FDA. The low exposure levels associated with amalgam fillings are well below levels associated with adverse health effects, the agency says.

Research links oral health with overall wellness Going to the dentist may not rank highly on your list of priorities. But you may want to rethink those priorities, based on recent research linking overall wellness with the health of teeth and gums. The connection is obvious to Dr. Leon Assael, dean of the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry. “There’s a tendency for people to not think that teeth are part of their body or an essential part of their body or that the whole masticatory apparatus is somehow less essential than an esophagus or stomach,” he said. A growing body of research shows a link between healthy teeth and gums and other diseases like heart disease, diabetes and dementia. Research shows

teeth when in fact we find, day after day in the clinic here, is that people leave a lot of bacteria behind,” she said. She recommends an electric toothbrush with a round head that oscillates, reaching under the gumline and between teeth. Instead of dental floss, she recommends a flossing tool with a long handle like a toothbrush and disposable flossing tip. If a cavity develops, Braga creates fillings from porcelain

theran Church, and serves as a chaplain for the Apple Valley Police Department. He also does speaking engagements 20-30 times a year in the Twin Cities on aging issues, drawing from his experiences at the Masonic Home. As for why he decided to revive “Grandpa’s Legacy” after 30 years in his slush pile, the book’s title suggests an answer. Tindell, who has three sons and four grandchildren, said he hopes readers “will discover the power of the legacies we leave behind as we travel the pathways of life.” “Although the story is about three young men and their last year of high school, it portrays a universal truth that cuts across all generations,” he said.” “Grandpa’s Legacy” is available from online booksellers such as Barnes & Noble and Email Andrew Miller at

LEGAL NOTICES BUSHARD, from 1A Hope, who is almost 4, is a carrier of the disease. There are 10 variations that take on many appearances in children and young adults. Hope has Sanfillipo syndrome Type D. “She has a enlarged pineal cyst in her brain, a chiari malformation to the base of her skull and a spine malformation,” Bushard said. She’s hoping to raise awareness and support of the National Mucopolysaccharidosis Society to help research treatment and discover cures. Stem cell treatment is one way to treat the disease. “I just happened to have had my daughter, Hope’s, umbilical cord blood (saved) just in case she or anyone in my family needed the stem cells,” Bushard said. “What a co-

incidence, huh?” When Hope was 6 months old, Bushard noticed the curve of her spine was different. In 2010, a few months after her first birthday, doctors started to suspect mucopolysaccharidosis during an appointment the week before Christmas. By summer 2011 Hope was becoming active, but the diagnosis was made. The curvature of her spine is bending over three to four times what it should be. There is no known cure. “My daughter, Hope, looks beautiful, and by the naked eye you would not know anything is wrong with her with the exception of her curved spine which some may mistake as scoliosis,” Bushard said. “We are on a wait-and-see basis with her medical care. We don’t let her do things

that we feel her spine may not handle. We monitor all her complaints such as belly aches, headaches, leg pain and take them very seriously as one day these things could mean something is progressing with one of her conditions.” Bushard said Hope will see her spine surgeon at Mayo Clinic in November. She anticipates an MRI may follow. If Bushard wins Mrs. Minnesota International, she’ll compete at the Mrs. International pageant in Jacksonville, Fla., in summer 2014. The Mrs. International competition began 27 years ago to promote married 21- to 56-year old women’s accomplishments and commitment to family and marriage. Husbands are part of the show, escorting the contestants during the

evening gown portion, and the winners are crowned by their husbands. She earned the title of Mrs. Dakota County two weeks ago after submitting her application, biography and photo to Mrs. Minnesota International. Bushard has never been in a pageant before. She spent time in her late teens and early 20s modeling until she had children. “A pageant is something I have always wanted to do for myself,” Bushard said. “I want to do this now to achieve one of my goals, to show my children that it does not matter how old they are, they can create new goals and dreams and reach them.” She is employed as a material coordinator for Burnsville-based Genz

Ryan Plumbing, and she’s working toward a bachelor of science degree in psychology. Bushard has been married to her husband, Michael, for 10 years and she’s a mother of four. She also runs a foundation called Hope’s Gift Foundation, an online store selling fantasy clothes for girls. A portion of the proceeds are donated to the University of Minnesota Amplatz Children’s Hospital. Bushard also is in need of business sponsors for pageant fees, hair, makeup, fitness and pageant attire. For more information visit, Email Andy Rogers at

Battle for the Apple: The Sequel AV, Eastview football teams meet again Friday with pride and trophy on line by Mike Shaughnessy SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Eastview and Apple Valley high schools have work to do to top the success of last year’s “Battle for the Apple” football game – both on and off the field. In 2012 the school sought to re-brand the football rivalry into something with just as much passion and a little less acrimony. The schools worked together on a fundraising project, raising $5,500 for the “Tackle Cancer” program sponsored by the Minnesota Football Coaches Association, and Randy Shaver Cancer Research and Community Fund. The game was one of the most memorable of the 2012 season, with Eastview rallying to win 29-26 after trailing 26-0 in the third quarter. The Lightning took possession of the traveling trophy created for last year’s game. Apple Valley goes to Eastview at 7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 4, to try and get it. The game once again will be a “Tackle Cancer” program fundraiser. Both teams are looking to build momentum after breaking losing streaks last week. Although it’s unlikely Eastview (2-3) and Apple Valley (1-4 overall, 1-3 conference) can get back in the race for the South Suburban Conference championship with just three regular-season games remaining, a victory would improve each team’s chance for a favorable playoff seeding.

The weeklong event, which included a dinner for both teams Monday, is “a chance to teach the kids about something that’s bigger than football,” Apple Valley head coach Chad Clendening said. “As far as the rivalry is concerned, it enhances it, but it was always strong.” Last Friday, Eastview beat Bloomington Jefferson 42-7 to end a threegame losing streak. Apple Valley’s 42-0 shutout of Bloomington Kennedy was its first of the season after opening with four consecutive losses. “Every day the kids came to practice with the same attitude. They wanted to get better,” Clendening said. “But in high school athletics, confidence is so important. That’s why last week was big for us.” Apple Valley quarterback Tommy Singer threw three touchdown passes against Kennedy, two to Matt Morse and one to Joey Skora. Da’Shawn Lewis rushed for two scores and Adrian Lally had one rushing touchdown. The Eagles have scored 68 points in their last two games, which has taken some pressure off their defense. Last week’s victory over Kennedy was Apple Valley’s first shutout of the season and only the second time it held an opponent below 20 points. “We preach to our kids on defense that you don’t always control when you get on the field, but you have to play stout defense no matter where you are on the field,” Clendening said. “But we have been looking for better balance, offense and defense, and we’ve been getting it the last two weeks. Kennedy also was the first game we didn’t turn the ball over.”

(Photo by Rick Orndorf) Eastview took the lead against Jefferson behind its powerful junior running back, Will Rains, who scored on runs of 1 and 2 yards in the first quarter. The Lightning then went up top in the second quarter as Mark Dwyer threw touchdown passes of 66 yards to Montrell Moore and 7 yards to Tommy Hutsell. Hutsell scored on a 14-yard run in the third quarter and Amari Kennedy added a 9-yard touchdown run in the fourth. Jefferson didn’t get on the board until the fourth quarter, and by that point the game was on running time because of Eastview’s big lead. Email Mike Shaughnessy at Eastview’s J.J.

Irish start fast, don’t let up Rosemount takes lead in SSC football by Mike Shaughnessy SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Some consider the true test of a football team to be how it reacts when it’s missing a few players. In Rosemount’s case, it came storming out the gate and buried Eagan 41-14 last Friday, a victory that left the Irish in first place in the South Suburban Conference after Lakeville North lost to Prior Lake. The Irish won its homecoming game without

starting quarterback Jackson Erdmann, who suited up but did not play. One of their receivers, Jordan Herbranson, watched from the sideline with one arm in a sling. Starting cornerback Carter Yepsen came out early because of an injury. And Rosemount gave its most dangerous offensive player, running back Dimitri Williams, the rest of the night off after he rushed for 113 yards in the first quarter. Little dropoff was evident as Rosemount improved to 4-1 overall and 4-0 in the South Suburban Conference. The Irish are the only SSC team undefeated in league play.

“We have some depth, so we don’t want to rely too much on any one player,” said defensive back Conner Yepsen (Carter’s twin brother), who intercepted two passes and returned one for a touchdown. “If a starter goes out, it’s somebody else’s turn.” Rosemount all but put the game out of reach in the first quarter, scoring three touchdowns in the first 10 minutes, 1 second. Backup quarterback Luke Dahl led the Irish on an 11-play, 80-yard drive for their first touchdown, with Williams scoring on a 7-yard run.

Edina High School girls hockey coach and former Burnsville High School player Laura Slominski underwent surgery Tuesday afternoon at North Memorial Hospital after fracturing a vertebra in her neck during a women’s hockey game Sunday night. In an entry on her site, Slominski wrote that the operation involved replacing a damaged vertebra and fusing several other vertebrae. According to the site, she has feeling and movement in all her extremities. She was injured when she went into the boards back-first, the CaringBridge site said. Slominski has been a math teacher and girls hockey coach at Edina High since 2008. She led the Hornets to four consecutive state tournament appearances from 2009 through 2012. Edina was Class AA runner-up in 2010 and 2011. Before going to Edina, Slominski was head coach at Bloomington Kennedy High School and an assistant coach at St. Cloud State University and the University of Minnesota.

Griak Invitational Several local high school teams competed Sept. 28 at the Roy Griak Invitational, which brings together top cross country teams from through-

out the United States. Eagan finished eighth of 50 girls teams in the Gold Division, considered to be the most competitive of two high school divisions. The Wildcats were the No. 3 team from Minnesota behind Wayzata (first) and Edina (tied for sixth). The Griak meet, held at the Les Bolstad Golf Course, is the only 5,000-meter race many girls runners compete in all season (the standard distance for Minnesota high school girls races is 4,000 meters). Senior Raissa Hansen led the Eagan girls by finishing 31st individually in 19 minutes, 28.4 seconds. Anna Van Wyk (40th) and Kelli Praska (44th) also were in the top 50 for the Wildcats. Burnsville finished 10th in the girls Gold Division. Blaze senior Vivian Hett was ninth overall – and the No. 4 Minnesota finisher – in 18:49. Eighth-grader Kelly Koch was 32nd in 19:29.1. Rosemount was 26th, led by senior Hannah Grim, who was 60th in the individual competition in 19:57.3. Seventhgrader Lauren Peterson was 66th in 20:00 to lead Farmington to 33rd place. Rosemount finished 21st and Farmington 41st in the boys Gold Division race. Rosemount’s leading runners were Alex Berhe, 63rd in 16:56.4, and Sam Ivanecky, 67th in 16:58.1. Justin Hyytinen finished 45th in 16:45 to lead Farmington. Wayzata and Edina were the top two teams in the boys Gold Division meet, and Obsa Ali of Richfield was individual champion. Eastview was 19th in the girls Maroon Divi-

sion meet. Sophomore Laura Bestul was 15th individually in 19:59. Margie Freed finished 69th in 21:24.

LV North volleyball tourney Lakeville North is host and defending champion at the Todd Bachman Invitational volleyball tournament that begins Friday, Oct. 4, at Lakeville North High School. One of the longestrunning volleyball tournaments (now in its 29th year) in the state, the event has drawn several highly ranked teams. In addition to Lakeville North (No. 3 in Class 3A), Prior Lake (No. 9 in Class 3A) and Marshall (No. 1 in Class 2A) are in the 16-team field. So, too, is Lakeville South from the South Suburban Conference. Lakeville North and Marshall might be anxious for a third match to settle their score this season. North swept two games from Marshall in a best-of-three match at the Southwest Minnesota Challenge in Marshall in early September. Two weeks later, Marshall swept Lakeville North in the second round at the Eagle Invitational in Apple Valley. The Lakeville North event won’t be the end of the volleyball tourney season, either. Apple Valley and Eastview will hold two-day tournaments Oct. 11-12. Apple Valley’s October Classic is the last of three regular-season tournaments the Eagles hold annually. Email Mike Shaughnessy at

SUN THISWEEK - Apple Valley October 4, 2013 13A

Alleged gunman charged with murder, woman accused of aiding

The first woman, 24-year-old Ashley Marie Conrade, is charged with aiding an offender for allegedly helping him avoid arrest. Jobi was at Nina’s with two cousins, one of whom gave police this account of the shooting: After leaving the bar at about 1:45 a.m., Jobi began talking to a woman later identified as Conrade. A man later identified as Nelson told him to stop talking to Conrade, whom he said was his girlfriend. The cousin defused the situation and Nelson walked about 20 feet away but continued to look back at Jobi and direct comments at him. Jobi eventually punched Nelson, and both men stumbled to the

driver’s side of a parked vehicle. “It was quiet for a moment, and then (the cousin) heard gunshots,” the complaint said. He dropped to the ground on the passenger side of the same vehicle. The man then got up, ran around the vehicle, jumped on Nelson and put him in a chokehold. Nelson began to turn the black and grey handgun toward him, so he “slapped the gun away and another shot was fired.” Nelson than grabbed the gun and ran from the scene. The vehicle’s owner, a female bar patron, gave police this account: A man later identified as Nelson approached her table and made lewd comments to her. He was joined by a woman later identified as Schunk, and made lewd comments about her, too. As the woman was leaving the bar, she saw some men arguing and then saw Nelson pull out a gun. She got into her car and locked the door. Nelson, stand-

ing in front of the car on the driver’s side headlight, began shooting toward or over her car in the direction of the bar. Jobi ran around the car, which the woman said was rocking “as if the two men were physically fighting” over it. After ducking down and then looking up to see whether the shooting was over, the woman “saw four or five flashes of gunshots and saw the victim go down.” A waitress at Nina’s who knows Nelson as “Cali” gave police a similar description of events. She said Nelson called her on her cell phone at about 2:45 a.m. and “asked if everything was OK at Nina’s.” Both the cousin and the car owner identified Nelson as the shooter in a photo lineup. Police went looking for him Sept. 24 at Conrade’s residence in Rosemount. As officers set up a perimeter around the house, Nelson was seen driving a Ford Fusion out of the townhouse complex.

When police attempted a traffic stop, Nelson fled on foot into a quarry, where he eventually surrendered. Nearby police found a handgun fitting the description of the gun Jobi’s cousin slapped away from him, the complaint said. Questioned by police, Conrade said she didn’t witness the shooting “but knew that Nelson had done it.” Conrade said she, Nelson and Schunk left Nina’s in her vehicle, which the complaint said is the Fusion and is registered to her. Nelson, who was driving, drove around the block and parked in a cul-de-sac where he could watch the bar’s parking lot. Upon seeing police arrive, he swore and pounded the steering wheel, Conrade told police. “Nelson then stated, ‘F-- it!’ and drove away from the area,” the complaint said, describing Conrade’s version of events. “The three went to Conrade’s home where Nelson stayed until his arrest.”

Nelson has convictions in Minnesota dating back to 2004. He’s been convicted of theft, fifth-degree drug crimes, receiving stolen property, aggravated robbery, driving without a valid license and giving a police officer false information. He made his first court appearance Sept. 26 and was held on $2 million bail ($1.5 million with conditions). Dakota County Attorney James Backstrom said he’ll bring the case to a grand jury for consideration of additional charges. Conrade made her first court appearance Sept. 26 and was held on $250,000 bail ($150,000 with conditions). Burnsville police said Sept. 25 that a private citizen offered a $5,000 reward for information on Anarae Schunk’s whereabouts.

whether money or personal keepsakes, he said. A fellow U of M student said Schunk stepped down from a group called Students for Education Reform last December because of “personal issues.” They likely were related to the relationship, said Kenneth Eban, who served on the group’s executive board with her. “She always contributed at meetings and contributed questions and concerns with us,” Eban said. “But definitely you could kind of tell that something wasn’t right as far as her situation because there would be times where she would snap off or disengage unexpectedly. I unfortunately never took the time to see what was bothering her in her personal life because as I said before, you’re wrapped up in your own thing and I just thought that that’s how Anarae is … I never

She absolutely thrived under it.” Their relationship didn’t end after Schunk went on to Burnsville High School, where she captained the chess team, joined the math club, played saxophone and clarinet and was chosen a class speaker at graduation. Schunk returned to Metcalf as an assistant chess coach for five years running. This season would have been her sixth. Schunk also privately tutored several of Ribnick’s classroom students in math last year and this year. She has coached School District 191 elementary chess programs at Sioux Trail, Hidden Valley

and Gideon Pond, Ribnick said. She remained an active competitor in the Minnesota State Chess Association, one of its top women players, Ribnick said. She also worked as a private chess tutor. From her days as a junior high player, Schunk impressed on the coach that he was in charge of a family, not just a team, Ribnick said. “That’s what she brought to my coaching,” he said. “She made me better and our team better. And that’s what we have been ever since.”


The alleged gunman in the fatal shooting at Nina’s Grill in Burnsville Sept. 22 has been charged with second-degree murder. Anthony Lee Nelson, aka Shavelle Oscar Chavez-Nelson, of Rosemount, is accused of killing 23-year-old Palagor Obang Jobi outside the bar at closing time. Jobi, of Savage, suffered eight gunshot wounds, according to the criminal complaint. Nelson drove away from the northeast Burnsville bar with a woman he said was his girlfriend and with 21-year-old Anarae Schunk, the first woman told police. She said the three eventually returned to her home in Rosemount. Schunk, a 2011 Burnsville High School graduate and University of Minnesota student who had arranged to meet Nelson Sept. 21, was reported missing the following day.

SCHUNK, from 1A knife connected with the case was reportedly found on the roof of the apartment building. Schunk, a 2011 Burnsville High School graduate who had lived with her parents until moving to Minneapolis in August, was described by her brother Owen as intelligent and an excellent student, but with a big heart that led her into the four- to six-month relationship with Nelson last year. Friends and family didn’t approve, Owen told the newspaper Sept. 24. “She cares about people. … She saw him as somebody that she could participate in the growth and assistance of,” he said. Anarae was distraught after breaking off the relationship around Thanksgiving, he said. She had arranged to meet Nelson in Burnsville on Sept. 21 to recover something,

The second script is a monster-filled riff on late-night talk shows. “Late Night With Pumpkin Headerman” is complete with a ghost pirate comedian and undead musical guest. It is recommended for ages 13 and older. “Candy Caper” performs at 6:30 p.m. and “Pumpkin Headerman” at 8 p.m. Performances

There’s something mesmerizing about the “finger tapping” technique that helped put Twin Cities guitar virtuoso Billy McLaughlin in the top 10 of the Billboard music charts. These days, the fact he’s able to play guitar at all is something of a miracle. McLaughlin, who’s set to perform Oct. 12 in Lakeville, was diagnosed in 2001 with focal dystonia, a neuromuscular disease that rendered him incapable of playing his own music. Not long after the diagnosis, he founded the holiday music ensemble SimpleGifts as a way to continue playing professionally while his solo career dissipated. For SimpleGifts he developed a unique – and very rudimentary – twofinger playing style to complement the group’s vocals, piano and violin. As SimpleGifts gelled – the group has released four holiday-themed CDs – McLaughlin has worked to revive his solo career, and he released the album “Into the Light” in 2007. Astonishingly, for his solo work the right-handed McLaughlin taught himself to play guitar left-handed. That feat of wizardry is chronicled in the documentary film “Changing Keys,” which aired on PBS in 2010. His solo efforts continue this month with McLaughlin – a White Bear Lake resident and winner of multiple Minnesota Music Awards – set to take the stage of

There’s art in store at every stop along the 50mile route of the Scott County Art Crawl this weekend. Founded in 2010 and hosted by the Savage Arts Council, the self-guided tour returns this year with 35 artists at 18 stops in the cities of Prior Lake, Savage and Shakopee. The idea behind the event, which runs 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 5, is to introduce art buyers to the work of local artists and to offer a window into the places where they make their art, according to organizers. “The Scott County Art Crawl is a fun-filled day with exploration and discovery of original high-quality artwork and emerging artists,” said Heather Mathews, a member of the Savage Arts Council Board. “This is a day that celebrates the fine art created right here in our own back yard.” Stops along the art crawl route will have paintings, sculpture, pottery, jewelry and more on offer, with prices ranging everywhere from $5 to $1,000. New to the event this year is an interactive theater experience with the River Valley Theater Company at Shakopee
