Retracing the 1st Minnesota’s steps

It was an open field they charged across, headlong into whistling balls of lead that cut men down as they ran. The soldiers of the 1st Minnesota knew the bayonet charge they were making was suicide. Gen. Winfield Scott Hancock, who gave the order, knew it, too, but he needed five minutes to

bring reinforcements to plug a critical hole in the Union line. He bought the time with Minnesotans’ lives. “Advance, Colonel, and take those colors,” Hancock ordered Col. William Colvill Jr. of Red Wing, commander of the 1st Minnesota Volunteer Infantry Regiment. Although outnumbered

more than five to one by the opposing Alabama regiments, Colvill and his men acted without hesitation. According to tradition, 262 Minnesotans charged. After about 15 minutes fighting, only 47 soldiers returned to answer roll call. The rest were dead or wounded – an 82 percent casualty rate. But reinforcements had arrived, and the Union line was secure. “No soldier, on any field, in this or any other country, ever displayed First Minnesota re-enactors give three cheers, first for grander heroism,” Han- “the great state of Alabama” and second for the original cock later said of the 1st 1st Minnesota and what its men did.

NEWS ECM Food Drive July 15-26 Happiness is a full tummy. The ECM Community Action Council invites local residents to contribute to its annual food drive this month. Frequently, food shelves are in most need during the summer months. Children are not in school during this time to receive the benefits of the breakfast and lunch programs. Their families often rely on what the food shelf has to offer. To ensure this need is met, Sun Thisweek and the Dakota County Tribune are accepting nonperishable food items between July 15-26 at its offices at 15322 Galaxie Ave. in Apple Valley. All items will be donated to area food shelves.

Apple Valley’s Fourth of July parade opened with the patriotically attired members of the American Legion Post 1776 color guard. The parade marked the final day of Apple Valley’s weeklong Freedom Days festival, which included a classic car show, family carnival, kids fishing derby and fireworks display. Jessica Leoung and other members of the Apple Valley High School marching band came ready to play at the Freedom Days parade.

The fight against cancer lasts all night long during the Apple Valley Relay For Life. The 13th annual Apple Valley event July 19-20 will see participants walking and running through the night and into the morning at Quarry Point Park as a benefit for the American Cancer Society. Thirteen teams and about 120 people have already registered for this year’s relay, which gets underway with an opening ceremony at 6:30 p.m. A fundraiser and a way to spread encouragement for those who’ve endured

or are currently battling cancer, the relay raises money through team commitment fees and individual donation goals secured from family, friends and businesses. Relay For Life grew from an idea of Dr. Gordon Klatt, who in 1985 ran and walked 24 hours on a track in Tacoma, Wash., traveling 81 miles and raising $27,000 for the American Cancer Society. From there, Relay For Life was born and is now held nationwide.

Penguin chicks make zoo debut

Local teen revives SES outdoor theater

The Minnesota Zoo’s two penguin chicks made their public debut on July 10. Born March 2 and March 21, the male chicks are part of the 3M Penguins of the African Coast exhibit which opened in 2011. The eldest chick, weighing just under 7 pounds, likes to swim and is comfortable in the water. He has a blue band on his right wing. The youngest chick, weighing around 6 pounds, was a bit skittish of water in the beginning but now enjoys it. He is already trying to “bray” like an adult penguin – sounding like a cross between a gull and a squeaky toy. He has a yellow band on his right wing. African penguins live and nest on the southwest coast of Africa, feeding primarily on anchovies, sardines, herring and pelagic goby. They are endangered in the wild due to oil spills, historical hunting and habitat destruction. (Photo submitted)

Lakeville man’s adventurous plans meet painful end Nathan Mehlhoff back home, uncertain of future by Laura Adelmann SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

A Lakeville man’s 2,000-mile quest came to an abrupt halt last month, just 70 miles into his journey. An injury forced Nathan Mehlhoff, 22, to abandon his plan to walk from his parent’s Lakeville home on June 17 to San Francisco, Calif. The trip was to take months, but he only made it a few days. Nathan took refuge with a friend in Mankato, where a sore, swollen ankle refused to accept another step, and he wound up calling a cab to the doctor’s office. An X-ray revealed what doctors said was a stress fracture of his lower left tibia bone. “I basically could not walk,” Nathan said. “I was limping around and it was very painful.” Doctors estimated four to six weeks time to heal, a prognosis Nathan said left him “devastated.” The Lakeville High School gradAlthough Lakeville resident Nathan Mehlhoff’s plans uate and English major at Winona were cut short, his efforts still raised awareness and mon- State University had decided to take ey for Feeding America, a hunger relief organization. a break from school to pursue ad(Photo submitted) venture and raise money for Feed-

He had wanted to see the world, meet people and possibly begin a blogging career by gaining sponsors as he documented his cross-country walk on Doctors briefly revived his hope for the journey by suggesting he may be able to bike to California. Days after his brother Colton Mehlhoff brought Nathan home, he borrowed Colton’s bike to take a five-day test drive through Minnesota and Wisconsin. The six-day, 200-mile trip went great. Nathan’s travels included Cannon Falls, Lake City and Menomonie, Wis. In an email to Sun Thisweek, Nathan described “green landscapes under clear blue skies cut by running water and spotted with small towns,” but when he got home July 3, a herniated disc in his back protested, pressed on his sciatic nerve and created excruciating pain down his leg. “That was the most amount of pain I’ve ever had in my life,” Nathan said. His discomfort was multiplied by a bad cold he said he caught while

camping at a truck stop parking lot. “It was not the most comfortable night,” he said. Although diverted from his plans for a big adventure, Nathan said he did enjoy the smaller travels he was able to complete, noting some of the wonderful people he met along his way. Karen Borresen-Berg of Thrivent Financial recognized him when he was traveling by Jordan, and said the company would match donations he raised, and he wound up generating $450 for Feeding America. “Every dollar they get, they turn into eight meals,” Nathan said, making his efforts worth 3,600 meals. While he is disappointed his plan did not turn out as he had hoped, Nathan said he is grateful for the encouraging emails and pledges of support he received. “I just want to say thank you to everyone for supporting me, and for those who helped me out along the way.” Laura Adelmann is at

Bathtub Races connect community to hungry refugees One Rosemount and Impact Lives race to ship food by Sarah Allen SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

On July 23, three-person teams will race bathtubs on wheels through an obstacle course while water balloons are tossed at them by spectators. Although the Rosemount Leprechaun Days Bathtub Races may seem just like fun and games, the event will raise money for One Rosemount, Feeding Families. The proceeds will help feed Haitian refugees living in the Dominican Republic. Earlier this year, more than 1,400 volunteers from Rosemount packaged 285,120 meals for families in the Dominican Republic through the nonprofit Impact Lives. The food has been packed, yet $26,000 is still needed in order to ship it. The Rev. Bill Goodwin, pastor of Lighthouse Christian Church in Rosemount, is a member of One Rosemount and a leader of the Bathtub Races. “What a wonderful community-wide event,” Goodwin said, “The community can come together and tackle the remainder of funds so that the food we packaged won’t sit in a warehouse. This is a wonderful opportunity for us to finish what we started.” The Feeding Families initiative was sparked by Goodwin’s trip to East Africa in September of last year. Goodwin visited

East Africa to monitor a Lighthouse project, partially sponsored by the 2012 Bathtub Races. During the trip, Goodwin visited a local school. The school proudly displayed their newly improved lunches. Goodwin noticed two pots of food with eager children huddled around it. “Is this the kids’ lunch for today?” Goodwin asked. The teacher corrected him, saying that the two pots fed 100 children every four days. After witnessing such shocking conditions, Goodwin returned to One Rosemount and proposed the group tackle world hunger. One Rosemount took the initiative to Impact Lives. The two groups joined together to reach hungry refugees in the Dominican Republic. One Rosemount hopes that the Bathtub Races and Family Fun Night will raise both money and awareness for the cause. Attendance is anticipated to double this year to 800 people and KARE 11 sportscaster Eric Perkins is expected to cover the event with Perk at Play and the Fan Van. This year’s Family Fun Night includes many family-friendly opportunities to donate. Ticket sales will allow people to purchase such items as hot dogs, water, chips, temporary tattoos,

three throws at the dunk tank or entry to one of the jumper houses. Attendees can expect the fun to begin at 5 p.m., kicking off with the Minnesota Athletic Trainer’s Association presenting a zumba class demonstration. A karate demonstration begins at 6:15 p.m. The Rosemount Fire Department will also swing by with their trucks. A number of local churches plan to help out with tattoos and jumper houses, including Rosemount United Methodist Church, Lighthouse, St. Joseph’s and Community of Hope. Look for a complete list of dunk tank participants in next week’s edition and online at SunThisweek. com. Cub Foods will be providing food for attendees between activities. The bathtub races start at 6:30 p.m. Typically the races have 20 teams, but organizers are expecting more this year. The teams are split into three categories: adult, child and local business. The cost to race is a $50 donation. Winners receive a traveling trophy and will be honored in the Leprechaun Days Parade. Teams wishing to race can still apply at the Lighthouse Church’s website. Viewers are encouraged to buy balloons at $1 for a set of five. Event organizers expect to fill 12,000

balloons for balloonthrowing spectators. Although the races will play a big part in reaching One Rosemount’s goal of $26,000, there is still a long way to go. Organizers expect the races to raise $8,000. Area businesses also plan to support the cause, including Best Buy’s donation of

$1,000. One Rosemount hopes that the races will prompt the community to show their support as well. One Rosemount is still accepting volunteers to help fill balloons either Sunday, July 21, or Monday, July 22. Volunteers can apply online at the Lighthouse Church’s web-

site. Donations for One Rosemount, Feeding Families can be sent through PayPal at www. Email Sarah Allen

Minnesota Community Sings plans event Voices of all ranges and ages are invited to take part in a Minnesota Community Sings event at 2 p.m. Friday, July 12, at the Robert Trail Library in Rosemount. Minnesota Community Sings is an organization that aims to build the culture of community public

Deep cuts in food stamps harmful, unwarranted It is painfully obvious that too many elected officials in Washington, D.C., have lost touch with the struggling people of this nation. This was demonstrated recently when House leaders proposed a farm bill that would have cut aid to food stamp (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) recipients by a whopping $20 billion over a 10-year period. The Senate version, supported by Sens. Al Franken and Amy Klobuchar, cut a more manageable $4 billion from SNAP during the same period. Although the measure failed in the House, it stands as a stark reminder of how unbalanced thinking can be in Washington when it comes to “solving” the struggles of this nation’s poor. The House may debate the farm bill again before September, but it will likely contain significant cuts to SNAP. That’s bad news for millions of U.S. families who are using the program as a bridge to survival.   The farm bill has a great impact on the fate of an estimated 47 million Americans who are receiving food stamps. The $20 billion in cuts identified in the $940 billion House version would have eliminated food support for an estimated 2 million Americans. The lion’s share of the farm bill deals directly with food assistance programs for people who qualify. These are people who have gone

ECM Editorial through the same pains that have ravaged most Americans during the last five years as gas prices have soared, and many of the most common food products have experienced price increases. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 8 of the 10 most common food products have experienced price increases in the last five years.   For the middle class, the struggles have come in the form of belt tightening, perhaps through the loss of a family vacation, delaying the purchase of a new car, or putting fewer dollars toward retirement. For the nation’s poor, the last five years have been devastating, with fewer opportunities for jobs because of high unemployment, and a month-to-month scramble to pay the rent and avoid hunger pangs.   Although it’s easy to keep poverty in the rearview mirror or omitted from our personal environment, the reality is that it affects one in 10 people in our state. There are hundreds of public school teachers throughout Minnesota who routinely send food home with needy kids because they are afraid they won’t eat again until they return to school.   While it is true that as a nation we must get spending under control, doing

so at the expense of those who can least afford it, especially at a level proposed by the House, seems reckless. As 4th District U.S. Rep. Betty McCollum said, it may even be considered “immoral, cruel and harmful.” In Minnesota the cuts would have affected an estimated 30,000 people. Currently, one in 10 Minnesotans receives SNAP benefits, according to the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities. That is roughly 551,000 Minnesotans.  Just within the 12 counties where ECM Publishers operates newspapers, there are 221,700 people receiving SNAP assistance, with an average monthly benefit of about $232 per household. These people are not invisible. They are moms, dads, grandmas, grandpas, and thousands of children who rely on adults to keep them fed.   Although there is logic behind having the food stamp program attached to the farm bill by creating a partnership between farm interests and urban consumers of food, it may be time to separate the two, so Americans can truly see where congressional leaders stand on these two important issues. The House bill totaled 629 pages. Food stamps and nutrition constituted $750 billion of the $940 billion plan.   Opponents will point to the food stamp program as an enabler, allowing freeloaders to slip through without con-

tributing to society. There will always be people who attempt to “work the system,” but the overwhelming majority of recipients take no joy in accepting assistance. In fact, in households with children who receive food stamps, 62 percent had at least one adult in the workforce in the month that they received support. And in the year prior to or the year immediately after a family with children received food stamps, 87 percent had one adult in the workforce. This hardly paints a picture of participants who want to remain on the program without working. Critics also often point to widespread fraud among participants. Ever since EBT cards were implemented to track purchases electronically, the U.S. Department of Agriculture estimates that 96 percent of all transactions are accurate.    If spending cuts are to be made all Americans may need to bear some burden, but leaders must do better with future nutrition spending proposals in the farm bill and not make a dire situation for our nation’s poor seem even more hopeless.

State leaders say one thing, do the opposite on taxes by David C. Olson SPECIAL TO SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Minnesotans, prepare to dig deeper into your pocketbooks following actions of the 2013 Legislature. Companies are being asked to pay a very high premium for the privilege of doing business in Minnesota. Many changes in tax law take effect July 1 and many are retroactive to Jan. 1. These new taxes include individual income tax, corporate taxes, sales taxes, estate and gift taxes, and cigarette taxes. The pyramid effect of these higher, and often hidden, costs is certain to be felt across the state and negatively impact the Minnesota economy and business competitiveness. The Minnesota Chamber of Commerce seeks to lower all of these costs. We support the call for a special session for immediate repeal of the B2B taxes: • Labor service charges for repair and maintenance of business equipment and machines, including farm equipment, effective July 1. • Purchases of telecommunications

Guest Columnist

David C. Olson equipment by telecommunications providers, effective July 1. • Storage and warehousing services of business-related goods, effective April 1, 2014. Minnesota businesses will pay the 6.875 percent state sales tax, plus any local sales tax, on these services if you hire the work out. The cost especially hits small and midsize businesses that don’t have the in-house expertise. The impact, without a doubt, will take a toll. Affected companies will be placed at an extreme disadvantage with their peers in other states and nations. Consumers will pay the price through higher costs for goods and services; employees will feel the impact through lower wages and lost jobs. B2B taxes are not only misguided fis-

cal policy, but they are at cross-purposes with legislative goals to promote economic growth. Consider these actions taken by the 2013 Legislature: A Job Creation Fund of $24 million was created to encourage industries – including storage and warehouse services and the businesses that use them – to locate in Minnesota. The B2B tax puts this industry at an extreme disadvantage, and without a healthy warehousing industry, Minnesota is less attractive for the businesses that require this service. Purchases of capital equipment will now be exempt from the sales tax rather than forcing companies to apply for tax refunds. That’s good. But now labor costs for repairing and maintaining the equipment are subject to sales tax. The governor’s Broadband Task Force recommended keeping the current exemption, and the Legislature allocated, $500,000 to create a broadband development office to encourage investment of high-tech equipment and capacity in Minnesota. Yet the B2B tax was extended to telecommunications equipment, making it more expensive for providers

to expand the state’s telecommunications infrastructure. The fact is, we did not even need the new tax to solve the budget. The Legislature faced a $627 million short-term problem and solved it by raising $2.3 billion in taxes. There is plenty of opportunity for the governor and lawmakers to correct their misguided actions by focusing on spending reductions. Owners and managers are tired of hearing our leaders promote a “pro-jobs” agenda, then pass “anti-business” legislation. In contrast, neighboring states are knocking on our doors, saying, “We are open for business” and backing it up with their policy decisions. These high and punitive taxes are making it harder and harder for our Minnesota businesses to ignore the welcoming invitations from other states. Let’s do the right thing and repeal these B2B taxes before we lose important businesses and jobs. David Olson is president of the Minnesota Chamber of Commerce – Columns reflect the opinion of the author.

Letters Lebanon Hills survey explained To the editor: I can’t idly sit by and let the assertion appearing in a recent letter to the editor of this newspaper suggesting that 60 percent of people polled by Dakota County oppose paved trails in Lebanon Hills go unchallenged. About a year ago, a very unscientific Survey Monkey survey conducted by Dakota County asked people what park uses they would support and one third answered paved trails. This was considered by county staff to be high considering the make up of respondents. The other two thirds didn’t oppose paved trails: They simply had different choices. Based on the findings of this unscientific survey, the writer might want to suggest that if I go out for diner with two friends

and I order a steak but the other two order something else that it means two thirds of us are opposed to steak. Earlier this year a poll was conducted for Dakota County by the National Research Center with a margin of error of 4 percent. When asked what uses they would support in Dakota County Parks such as Lebanon Hills, respondents were given eight specific choices and a ninth choice of “other.” Sixty-six percent selected the choice of “Trail networks for hiking, biking or skiing.” Those who oppose paved trails in Lebanon Hills have an absolute right to their opinion; but they can’t create their own facts.

Job fair slated Monday

To the editor: Last week, we were reminded by the monthly jobs report how tepid economic growth remains. Too many Minnesotans have been out of work for more than several months, wages in many sectors are stagnant, and the unemployment rate is still too high. To help provide new opportunities to put Minnesotans back to work in a highly competitive and uncertain job market, U.S. Rep. John Kline, R-Burnsville, will be hosting a Career and Jobs Fair from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday, July 15, at the Eagan Community Center. The career and jobs fair is free and open to the TOM EGAN public. If you are looking Eagan for a job, I encourage you Dakota County commis- to attend this event and sioner, Third District share the information with anyone you know who is struggling as they navigate

the uncertain economy. Scheduled to attend the jobs fair are more than 60 private-sector employers who currently have job openings in a wide variety of fields including the health care, technology, financial, and retail industries. Employment assistance organizations and a variety of educational institutions are also scheduled to attend. The fair will also include breakout sessions focusing on tips for job seekers, including effective resume writing. The Better Business Bureau and the Minnesota Department of Veteran Affairs will also be on hand offering workshops to help veterans find employment by translating specific veterans’ skill sets into finding a job. I hope to see many people Monday at the fair.

To the editor: Has there ever been a more absurd or confusing letter to the editor than Ron Glossner’s letter on June 28? His rant against U.S. Rep. John Kline, RBurnsville, borders on being one of the greatest acrimonious bits of phantasmagoria in this century. Mr Glossner’s hyperbolic objection to Kline’s bill, created to prevent pain in the helpless unborn, has become another cause for Mr. Glossner to be offended. Mr. Glossner also takes issue that Kline does not



of Minnesotans motivated by the need for intergenerational justice traveled to Washington, D.C., for the Citizens Climate Lobby International Conference. We heard from Dr. James Hanson who showed us pictures of his grandchildren and said he had returned to speak on human-induced climate change because of concern for them. About 400 concerned citizens from the U.S. and Canada visited over 400 congressional offices to discuss the public health problems and damage to our environment from our use of fossil fuels. According to the Clean Air Task Force, coal plants alone cause 13,000 deaths each year and fossil fuel use costs us $120 billion a year in mostly health-related damages (2009 NAS study). In our visits we found many U.S. representatives and senators acutely aware of the damage being caused by climate change. U.S. Rep. Rick Nolan’s legislative director suggested a town hall forum on climate change to further the discussion with his constituents. The South Metro CCL members from U.S. Rep. John Kline’s district (including me) would welcome a community forum that addresses climate change in their district, too. It is time to recommit to justice for all our citizens and for those just learning to walk who will one day ask us: “What did we do to solve the climate crisis?”

To the editor: In a recent column, Joe Nathan spoke about “a memorial to a mistake,” a memorial a few blocks from the nation’s Capitol dedicated to captives in internment camps for Japanese-Americans during World War II. Nathan mentions President Reagan’s admission of the mistake and re-commitment to equal justice in 1988. Nathan observes the memorial and reminds us that stress may be behind similar mistakes, like Guantanamo, where many individuals are incarcerated whose guilt may be VEDA KANITZ questionable.

Burnsville man gets seven years prison for possessing stolen pistol In his plea agreement, Johnson admitted that on Oct. 23, 2012, he possessed the loaded pistol while walking in Minneapolis with three friends at approximately 4:10 p.m. Johnson also admitted he knew the pistol, which was tucked into his waistband, was stolen. When the four friends saw a police squad, one of them ran. When offi-

cers asked the remaining three to raise their hands into the air, Johnson admitted he didn’t raise his all the way in an attempt to hide the gun. Johnson also admitted to disobeying the officers when ordered to lie on the ground. The gun fell out of Johnson’s waistband following a struggle.

Eagan authorities say a duplex fire at Lemieux Circle may be the result of arson. An investigation of the June 30 fire ruled out all accidental and environmental sources, leading investigators to determine the fire started under suspicious circumstances. The early morning fire consumed a newly-constructed duplex and its intense heat melted vinyl siding on at least three neighboring homes. Both sides of the duplex were unoccupied. No one was injured. Authorities are urging anyone with information about the cause of the fire to call the Eagan Fire Department at 651-675-5900 or the Arson Hotline at 1-800-723-2020 or email at There may be rewards up to $1,000 for information that leads to the identity of the persons responsible.

Baseball tourney attracts 90 teams Gopher Classic pool play takes place at several local sites by Mike Shaughnessy SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

The Jim Hanus Gopher Classic, already the largest American Legion baseball tournament in the United States, is growing again. The 90-team tournament – up six from last year – starts Friday with pool play at 15 sites, including four in Dakota County. Fifty-nine teams are from Minnesota, and nine of them are from Dakota County. The tournament has almost doubled in size since 2006, when it had 48 teams. The Gopher Classic’s namesake, Jim Hanus, was a longtime coach of several teams in the Minnetonka/ Excelsior area, including the Excelsior Legion. Barring weather delays, each team will play five games over three days through Sunday, with a playoff phase beginning Monday and concluding with the championship game at 2 p.m. Tuesday at Veterans Field in Minnetonka. Apple Valley is host of a pool at Legion Field that has two-time defend-

ing Gopher Classic champion Coon Rapids, along with Minnesota teams Rosetown and Mankato National, West Fargo, N.D., and Yankton, S.D. On Friday, Apple Valley will play Rosetown at 9 a.m. and Mankato National at 2 p.m. Burnsville, ranked third in last week’s state American Legion poll, will be host of pool play at Alimagnet Park. Others in that pool are Minnesota teams East Grand Forks, Rochester A’s and Shakopee, plus DePere, Wis., and Sioux Falls West of South Dakota. Burnsville opens play Friday against the Rochester A’s at 4:30 p.m. and Sioux Falls West at 7 p.m. Sixth-ranked Lakeville North is a pool-play host, with games split between Lakeville North High School and Frederickson Field in Elko. Champlin, Owatonna and Wayzata play in the Lakeville North pool, along with Kenosha, Wis., and a Canadian team, the Calgary Dinos. Lakeville North plays one game on Friday against Owatonna at 2 p.m. at Elko.

Eagan will face Andover, East Ridge, Detroit Lakes, Papillion (Neb.) North and Brandon Valley, S.D., in pool play at Eagan High School. Eagan has a pool-play doubleheader Friday with games against Papillion North at 4 p.m. and Detroit Lakes at 6:30 p.m. Eastview, ranked eighth in the state, will be part of a pool at Veterans Field in Minnetonka. The Thunder plays two games Friday against Minneapolis Southwest at 11:30 a.m. and DilworthGlyndon-Felton at 2 p.m. Eastview closes pool play against No. 2-ranked Excelsior at 7:30 p.m. Sunday.

Flugum will be AVHS boys track coach Apple Valley High School stayed in-house for its new boys track and field coach, naming AVHS alumnus and teacher Jeff Flugum to the position this week. Flugum replaces Rod Dirth, who retired from teaching and coaching in June. A graduate of St. Olaf College, Flugum returned

to AVHS in 2011 to teach social studies. He also is the football team’s offensive coordinator and helps direct the school’s fitness center and speed and strength program. Before taking the teaching job at Apple Valley, Flugum was head girls track and field coach and assistant boys track and field coach at South

St. Paul High School. “I am excited for the opportunity to be a head coach in the school from where I graduated. I look forward to working with the student-athletes and tremendous coaches at AVHS,” Flugum said in a statement released by the school.

There’s a good chance ESPN will broadcast an Apple Valley High School boys basketball home game in December. Officials from the network were at the school Monday to evaluate the AVHS gym’s suitability for a broadcast. If it happens, it would be Thursday, Dec. 12, with a tentative starting time of 6 p.m. “If ESPN asks, ‘Can you hold the date open?’ I think the answer is, ‘Well, sure,’ ” said Apple Valley High School athletics/activities director Pete Buesgens. The school should find out in the next few weeks if the game will take place. An opponent has not been named, although Buesgens said it was his impression that it would be a team from outside Minnesota. For several years, ESPN has been broadcasting high school games featuring teams and individuals with a high national profile. Many of these games are aired on ESPN2 or ESPNU. The network’s interest in Apple Valley is obvious – Tyus Jones, who will be a senior this fall, is ranked by ESPN as the No. 3 college recruit in the Class of 2014 and the No. 1 point guard. He helped lead the Eagles to a 31-1 record in 2012-13 and their first state championship in

boys basketball. Jones averaged 23.3 points, five rebounds and almost six assists in three state tournament games in March. He is playing with the Howard Pulley Panthers AAU team this summer. Recently he scored 41 points in a Howard Pulley Pro-Am League game against a team that included University of Minnesota guard Andre Hollins. It’s been speculated that Apple Valley’s opponent could be Whitney Young High School in Chicago, which has ESPN’s No. 1-ranked recruit, center Jahlil Okafor. Jones and Okafor were teammates on a USA Basketball team that won the world Under-17 championship last summer and have struck up a friendship. They have talked about going to the same college, but neither has selected a school yet. Buesgens said he also has heard the speculation about Okafor and Whitney Young High School. “If it happens, it would be a lot of fun,” Buesgens said. There appear to be no roadblocks in the form of Minnesota State High School League rules. Apple Valley has 24 regularseason games scheduled for far for 2013-14, not including the possible Dec. 12 game. The MSHSL maximum is 26. MSHSL rules prohibit Minnesota teams from traveling beyond a “bor-

dering state” (North Dakota, South Dakota, Iowa and Wisconsin) to play a game, but high school teams from other states can come to Minnesota. If the Dec. 12 game takes place, the network is expected to bring in additional lighting for the broadcast, although Buesgens said ESPN officials found the existing lighting at the AVHS gym to be acceptable. The school would have to conduct an advance ticket sale because demand likely would exceed the capacity of the gym, which Buesgens said seats 2,100 comfortably. There are other logistical issues, not the least of which is a girls hockey game between Apple Valley and Lakeville North scheduled the same night at the adjacent Apple Valley Sports Arena. As for moving the basketball game to another location in the Twin Cities, “You can’t play a high school game at a Division I (college) facility, so we couldn’t have it at Williams Arena,” Buesgens said. “And the other college gyms near us don’t have any more seating than we do. “For me, I want the game at Apple Valley High School. I think we have a great facility and I would love to show it off.” Email Mike Shaughnessy at

Notebook: Two local soccer teams chosen for Super Elite tourney by Mike Shaughnessy SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Two teams from Dakota County will be involved in one of the kickoff events this weekend for the USA Cup international youth soccer tournament in Blaine. The Dakota Rev Riptide Under-14 girls team and the Eagan Wave Premier Under-16 girls team were invited to the USA Cup Super Elite tournament, which runs Friday through Sunday at the National Sports Center. The main USA Cup tourney starts Tuesday and runs through July 20. The Super Elite tourney has six teams in each of four classes: girls U14, boys U14, girls U16 and boys U16. Teams first had to apply for the event and then be invited by tournament

officials. Dakota Rev Riptide won the Midwest Premier League, allowing just one goal in the process. Other teams in its division at the Super Elite tourney include MapleBrook Rush Premier and Minnesota Thunder Academy 99 as well as teams from Kansas, Nebraska and Wisconsin. In the girls U16 division, Eagan’s potential opponents include three Minnesota teams – Minnesota Thunder Academy 97 Blue, Tonka United Blue and NSSA Blast. There’s also one team from Wisconsin and one from Sendai, Japan. Schedules for the Super Elite tournament were not finalized when this edition went to press. They will be available at www.

But Elsagher is overseeing the international exhibits, which will represent 14 countries, races or organizations and be on display in the arts center from 3-6 p.m. Look for him at the Egyptian booth, which will include numerous pieces from his personal minimuseum, which occupies two rooms of the Elsagher family home. “I’m not trying to be a biased person. I’m trying to be fair to everyone,” he said in discussing the uprising in Egypt. But Elsagher firmly supports Mohamed Morsi, the Muslim Brotherhoodaligned president who was removed from office by the Egyptian military on July 3, a year after becoming the nation’s first democratically elected leader. “This an elected president,” Elsagher said, insisting that Egyptian democracy needs patience and nurturing to take hold in a region of

the world where leaders are hostile to democratic rule. He said a nephew of his, also a Morsi backer, told his family he would protest in the streets at the risk of being killed. “My prediction for the Egyptians is not good,” said Elsagher, a veteran production manager at Seagate Technology in Bloomington. “It’s either going to be a civil war or else the military rulers would lead the country again for many, many years to come. The revolution would die. The democracy would be killed forever. “You can’t just try a president for a year and kick him out and try another one. The next one would probably only last for a month.” The Elsagher family is also in charge of three United States exhibits (native, African-American and “others”). Other countries represented are Germany, France, Korea, Mexico, Sierra Leone, Vietnam and Japan.

The International Festival evolved from a school-based event Elsagher led at Nicollet Junior High in 2004. Attendance grew so large the following year organizers decided to make it a citywide event, which debuted at the Burnsville Fire Muster in 2006 and has been held at Nicollet Commons Park since 2007. Rain forced the festival indoors at the arts center in June 2011. “That’s why we made the decision to move it to July,” said Elsagher, who has also organized an international festival at Seagate Technology for 11 years. “It has less rain than any other month. The second or third Saturday of July will be the date moving forward.” The festival, which has grown to attract more than 4,000 people, showcases Burnsville as a “melting pot,” Elsagher said. “It’s a fun event.

BATTLE, from 1A Minnesota. Exactly 150 years after the charge, on the evening of July 2, 2013, a group of Minnesota soldiers, elected officials, history buffs and others stood at the top of the same slope as Colvill and his men. Two Dakota County men were part of the Minnesota delegation marking the Gettysburg battle’s 150th anniversary July 1-3. Robert Hejkal Jr. of Lakeville said walking the battlefield made the history seem more real. “History has always been one of my things,� he said. Hejkal partially credits his interest in history to the fact that his father was in World War II. His grandfather was also in the military. Hejkal continued the family trade with a 41-year career in the Army, and his son was in the 101st Airborne during the Gulf War. Although Hejkal went to Gettysburg in 1992, he didn’t have a guide then. This trip offered him “the opportunity to get the scoop from people who know.� Hejkal found out about the trip from Secretary of State Mark Ritchie, cochair of the Minnesota Civil War Commemoration Task Force, who was

Samuel Henderson, of Burnsville, shoots footage in Gettysburg on July 1. (Photo by Jonathan Young) a high school classmate. He and Ritchie both attended their high school reunion in Iowa immediately before the trip to Gettysburg. Samuel Henderson of Burnsville played a dual role in the Minnesota delegation that traveled to Gettysburg. He was a reenactor and videographer. A member of the 1st Minnesota Volunteer Infantry re-enactment group, Henderson left the week before the anniversary to participate in re-enactments near the battlefield June 27-30. But as he donned his uniform, he also picked up a video camera.

Henderson followed the official Minnesota delegation July 1-3, as well. As an intern with the Minnesota Historical Society, it was his task to capture the trip so those who couldn’t travel would still be able to “tag along.� He hopes to turn the footage into short documentary pieces. Through the pieces he is attempting to do more than simply record events. He’s trying to answer the question, “One hundred fifty years later, what kind of meaning does this hold for folks from all walks of life?� It will take time to go through the footage and

create the documentaries, but Henderson hopes to finish them by the middle of August. They will be posted on The official state delegation to Gettysburg rededicated the three Minnesota monuments on the battlefield. Minnesotans laid a wreath at the foot of each monument and honored the 1st Minnesota Volunteer Infantry Regiment’s role in the conflict. Although it was the only Minnesota regiment to fight at Gettysburg, the unit played a critical role and suffered severe casualties. After seeing action on two of the three days of battle, approximately 70 percent of the 330 Minnesotans who fought were dead or wounded. “Visiting the battlefield, where so many Minnesotans lost their lives or were injured, brings home the pivotal role these brave young men played in determining the outcome of the American Civil War and the future of the nation,� said Steve Elliott, director and CEO of the Minnesota Historical Society. Members of the Minnesota delegation also placed commemorative Civil War veteran flags at each of the 52 Minnesota graves at the national cemetery.

Thisweekend Magic of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Peter Panâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; comes to Eagan stage Show runs July 12 to Aug. 3 at EHS is what will draw people â&#x20AC;&#x201C; weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re as close to a professional show as you can get,â&#x20AC;? Schiffman said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And I think everybody comes to see Peter fly â&#x20AC;&#x201C; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll blow their socks off.â&#x20AC;? Young children attending â&#x20AC;&#x153;Peter Panâ&#x20AC;? are invited to dress as a pirate or fairy and take part in the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pirate/Tinkerbell Paradeâ&#x20AC;? which will be held prior to each performance. And while â&#x20AC;&#x153;Peter Panâ&#x20AC;? looks to conjure a sense of wonder in children, the production has something to delight audience members of all ages, according to Cartwright. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s funny, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s silly, and I think more than any show Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever done thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something for little kids, for adults and for everybody in between,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s definitely magical.â&#x20AC;? Tickets are still available for opening weekend (July 12-14) and can be purchased online at or by calling the box office at 651-683-6964.


Eagan Summer Community Theatreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s production of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Peter Panâ&#x20AC;? seeks to take audiences on a magical journey into Neverland â&#x20AC;&#x201C; pixie dust and all. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re sitting in the front eight rows, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re calling it â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;the pixie dust splash zone,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? said Sarah Cartwright of Apple Valley, who plays Peter in the production. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll probably be picking it out of your clothes for weeks.â&#x20AC;? The show, which runs July 12 to Aug. 3 in the Eagan High School auditorium, is directed by Dennis Swanson and features actors drawn from Eagan and the surrounding area. Jim Schiffman, who acted at Apple Valley High School in the 1970s and now works as a video producer for the city of Lakeville, is cast as Captain Hook. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be joined on stage by his two children â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Olivia, 17, who plays a Neverland dancer, and Peter Pan (played by Sarah Cartwright) and Captain Hook (Jim Schiffman) lock 15-year-old Ethan, a â&#x20AC;&#x153;pirate in training.â&#x20AC;? swords in the latest production from Eagan Summer Community Theatre.

First-time author pays tribute to his hometown in â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;J-Hawk Nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; by Andrew Miller SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Mark Reinsmoen said he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to search far for the stories and characters that fill his first novel, â&#x20AC;&#x153;J-Hawk Nation.â&#x20AC;? The farm adventures and small-town drama found on the bookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pages are drawn from Reinsmoenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own experiences growing up in the small rural community of Joice, Iowa. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I did not go looking for a book to write â&#x20AC;&#x201C; it came to me like E.T. came to Elliott,â&#x20AC;? he said. Mark Reinsmoen, a Burnsville resident and retired Echo â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wrote it to honor my Park Elementary fourth-grade teacher, saw publication hometown.â&#x20AC;? of his first novel in June. (Photo submitted) Reinsmoen, of Burnsville, recently retired from a teaching career in the Rosemount-Apple Valley-Eagan School District. He spent the last 28 years teaching at Echo Park Elementary in Burnsville. â&#x20AC;&#x153;J-Hawk Nationâ&#x20AC;? is set in the early 1960s in the small town of Jeffers, Iowa â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a fictional-

ized version of Joice. Reinsmoen describes the book, which is told through the eyes of a 16-year-old boy, as â&#x20AC;&#x153;a portrait of those magical years â&#x20AC;Ś first love, the search for personal identity, questions that needed to be faced about the high school years and what lay ahead.â&#x20AC;? The plot of â&#x20AC;&#x153;J-Hawk Nationâ&#x20AC;? focuses on the triumphs of a high

school basketball team, and Reinsmoen created 20-some fictional newspaper sports columns, interspersed throughout the book, to tell the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s story. Reinsmoen, who recently has been undergoing chemotherapy as he battles prostate cancer, is now working on his next book, tentatively titled â&#x20AC;&#x153;By the Seat of My Bike,â&#x20AC;? which is a collec-

tion of humorous stories about his biking adventures in Norway and other parts of Europe. â&#x20AC;&#x153;J-Hawk Nation,â&#x20AC;? released in June, is available through online booksellers such as Barnes & Noble and More about the book is at www.outskirtspress. com/jhawknation.
