Area residents are taking their caps off in honor of Richard VanderLaan, who died at age 76 Sept. 12. VanderLaan died of natural causes in his home, with family and loved ones at his side. VanderLaan contributed more than 30 years of work to help upgrade Burnsville city fields and parks, earning him the n i c k n a m e , Richard Burnsville’s VanderLaan Mr. Baseball. VanderLaan began as an amateur baseball benefactor when he started American Legion baseball in Burnsville in 1982. Later he founded Baseball Association 191 in the early 1990s for young men in Burnsville, Eagan and Savage. In 2005, VanderLaan’s contributions were recognized when Burnsville’s Alimagnet Ballpark was named after him. He is survived by wife Ruthie, daughter Amy Gresser, stepson Mike, sisters and many grandchildren. The people who knew him honored his death much like See BASEBALL, 17A
Three-year-old Mitchell Davies was all smiles as he tested out the driver’s seat of a fire truck during the booya event Sept. 14 hosted by Apple Valley firefighters; Mitchell’s dad, Nick Davies, offered him a hand getting in and out of the truck. Area residents packed the grounds of the fire station at County Road 42 and Hayes Road for the 35th annual event, which saw firefighters dishing up about 400 gallons of booya – a meat- and vegetable-filled stew – as a fundraiser for the Apple Valley Firefighters’ Relief Association. The festivities also included bingo, children’s games, a silent auction and raffle. (Photo by Andrew Miller)
City tax bills may see small bump in 2014 Apple Valley homeowners may see an increase in the city portion of their taxes next year – but not much. Under the Apple Valley’s proposed 2014 levy, city property taxes will show an increase of 1.1 percent – or $10 – for the owner of a median value home. According to city finance staff, the taxes on a median value home (valued at between $190,000 and $200,000) are estimated at $864 in 2014. In 2012, the owner of a median value home paid $866 in city property taxes; in 2013, $854. Among other allocations, the 2014 city budget supported by the proposed $22.7 million total levy provides for the addition of two staff positions – a police detective and an IT position. The proposed budget also continues street maintenance funding through the city tax levy, reflecting city officials’ decision not to use special assessments on properties adjoining street projects. Street maintenance funding brought an increase of $1.08 million to the tax levy in 2013. The preliminary budget/levy approved by the City Council establishes the maximum levy for 2013. In the coming months, until the adoption of the final budget in December, the council can only reduce the levy amount. The City Council has scheduled its public budget meeting (formerly called the Truth in Taxation hearing) for Dec. 12 at the Apple Valley Municipal Center. Dakota County is required to send out property-specific tax notices in late November. Information about the budget and tax levy is available on the city’s website, www.cityofapplevalley.org. —Andrew Miller
Boogie on down to Farmington for Ramble Jam by Jennifer Chick SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE
As country music fans descend on Farmington this weekend, hundreds of volunteers with be pitching in to make the Ramble Jam a fun weekend for all. This is the third year Farmington Rotary has organized Ramble Jam, which has grown from a one-day festival to a twoday jam session featuring several national acts. Last year, Anika Rychner, co-chair of the event, said the Farmington Rotary club enlisted the help of 350 volunteers. This year, they are expecting to have anywhere from 400 to 500 people help with the country music festival on the Dakota County Fairgrounds in Farmington

Longtime area athletic director remembered Jack Zahr forged connections in Eagan, Rosemount by Tad Johnson SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE
Jack Zahr loved sports, but the longtime Eagan resident and St. Joseph Catholic Church parishioner also knew the value of a great education. A church friend of the St. Thomas Academy athletic director who died Tuesday, Sept. 10, at age 58 said Zahr knew that all started with his two daughters’ education at St. Joseph Catholic School in Rosemount. “It’s obvious that in Jack’s professional life he was totally committed to
STA,” Jim Herrick said of Zahr’s passion for the Mendota Heights school he worked for 36 years as a teacher, coach and – for the last 26 years – as athletic and activities director. “In his faith life and in the parochial education of his daughters, he was totally committed to St. Joseph Church and School,” Herrick said. “He realized their faith’s foundation and their excellent academic performance at Visitation started with St. Joseph School.” The Rev. Paul Jarvis,
who conducted Zahr’s celebration of life service Friday, recognized this when he visited the Zahr family after Jack Zahr’s stroke Sept. 1. “I could also tell from Jack’s and Jan’s daughters that they raised them not only to love athletics, but to love learning,” Jarvis wrote in an email. “Children just don’t turn out so well. Jack, from his vantage point, can look down and know he, and his incredible wife, have done an excellent job. Isn’t this the greatest satisfaction any parent can take?” Laura and Becky Zahr attended St. Joseph Catholic School and Visitation
High School. Laura Zahr attends Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa, and Becky Zahr is a student at St. Catherine University in St. Paul. Jarvis said he was privileged to be with people of such strong faith when it was determined that Jack Zahr’s situation was terminal. “As I visited, I noted how solid they were, drawing their strength from each other and the God they all loved,” Jarvis wrote. “I could see from such incredible faith would come courage and comfort.” The Zahrs’ link to St. Joseph created many friendships in the Rose-
mount community along with the ones they forged in Eagan as residents of that city. Outside of his work, Herrick said Jack Zahr had his priorities when it came to relaxing at the family’s lake home in northern Minnesota. “Most of those revolved around the family and the lake,” he said. Herrick said Jack Zahr like to water ski and tube, fish and hang out on the dock. “The cabin was the place for family, fun and relaxing,” Herrick said. Jack Zahr graduated from the College of St. Thomas in 1977. He was captain of the St. Thom-
as cross country team his senior year and also ran track and field. Email Tad Johnson at email@example.com.

Johnson finds it rewarding to watch the children come pick out coats and accessories. “Last year, one child was super-excited to get Spider-Man gloves,” she said. “There was another little girl that found a hat and scarf that matched her jacket … and she was pretty thrilled.” The Community Emergency Assistance Program is another charity that distributes coats from the drive. According to CEAP Family Services Supervisor Patrick Morley, the organization gives away the coats through its clothing closet, which is seeing an increasing need among immigrants who perhaps have never needed a winter coat before. “Unfortunately, there is no shortage of demand,” he said. “These are critical … services, and so community partnerships are essential. ... I would defy any Minnesotan to say that a winter coat in the last week of January, first week of February is not a basic need.” Morley said CEAP
doesn’t put all the coats out at once. It tries to make a steady stream of coats available, because there’s typically a spike in demand when the coldest weather comes in January or February. He said stretching the time period of distribution is possible because of the large number of coats CEAP gets from Pilgrim. Last year, Morley said, CEAP received about 2,000 coats and “gave every last single one of them away.” “The demand is big, but the response (to the need) is big,” he said. Bonnie Engler, president of Pilgrim Cleaners, said it’s been that way since her father started the program 27 years ago. Since then, Pilgrim has collected and cleaned more than 385,000 coats. “People are very generous,” Engler said. “It’s wonderful to see.” She said working with existing charities ensures the coats get to those who need them. “They’re very well established charities, and every year (they’re) so thankful for every coat that we give them,” she said. “They’re very recognizable (organizations)
and have very good reputations out in the community.” This year’s goal is collecting 10,000 coats, and the collection drive runs through Friday, Oct. 11. ECM-Sun Newspapers, WCCO Radio, KARE 11 and Subway are sponsors. Anyone who wants to donate a gently used coat can take it to any of the 25 Pilgrim Cleaners locations. The program accepts coats for children and adults. Go online to find a location. Community members can also send monetary gifts to the Coats for Kids fund, c/o Pilgrim Cleaners, 3217 85th Ave. N., Brooklyn Park, MN 55443. All donations will go toward purchasing new children’s coats. Schools are encouraged to organize their own coat drives.

A pickle of a sport Area seniors enjoy the finer points of pickleball by Jennifer Chick SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE
Dakota County seniors are in a pickle … and loving it. Pickleball courts and leagues have been sprouting out throughout the area and made its debut in Farmington last winter. Seniors gathered at the Grand Hall Studio in Farmington where caretaker and manager Amy Nielsen organized biweekly pickleball games. In October, Nielsen plans to start the social sport back up and seniors can’t wait. “I like it because it’s such good exercise, and I like to have fun with other people,” said Farmington resident Ruth Jones. Pickleball combines aspects of tennis, pingpong and badminton. Nielsen first heard about the sport from her dad, Bob, who lives in Florida. She was already offering senior fitness classes at the Grand Hall Studio and thought pickleball would be a welcome addition. She contacted the United States Pickleball Association and secured a grant to purchase two nets. Then a company donated the paddles and balls, and she was in business. Terry Taylor, an ambassador for the USA Pickleball Association,
has been playing and teaching pickleball for four years in Rosemount. He said it is one of the few sports, besides golf, that can be played by seniors. “It doesn’t have to be competitive,” he said. “It’s just fun, social. It’s a game you can play aggressively or just leisurely.” Players in Rosemount meet at Claret Park during the spring and summer using six courts for the Rosemount Pickleball Club. They have been playing there for four years and meet on weekday mornings for games. Farmington’s Grand Hall Studio is one of the few places in the south metro where you can play pickleball indoors. The Grand Hall Studio ballroom is split into two courts. Four players split into pairs to play on one court. The rules aren’t difficult, and the main goal is to have fun, but pickleball sneaks in a good workout, too. Corneliu Simionescu, of Farmington, has been doing physical therapy to recuperate from heart surgery, and he said pickleball is a better workout than his physical therapy. “Tennis is more physically demanding, and pingpong is static,” he said. “Pickleball is between them, and I like it.”
Sara VonFrick has been visiting relatives in Farmington. She lives in Florida where seniors gather often to play pickleball. She has been playing for about a year and enjoys the social aspect the most. “You get to know all these people that play and all their personalities,” she said. “It’s a pretty diverse group of people.” Pickleball was created in 1966 when several dads invented a new game for their bored children in Washington state. They improvised a new game with a Wiffle-type ball and plywood paddles. Stories persist that pickleball was named after creator Joel Pritchard’s dog, Pickles, but Joel’s wife has corrected the story, saying she said the game reminded her of the Pickle boat in crew where oarsmen were chosen from the leftovers of other boats. The family did have a dog, but he didn’t join the family until later and was named after the game. While various stories of how the game was named still float around, all agree it is a sport in need of more publicity. “Pickleball needs to get into the public more,” Taylor said. “There are a lot of people that when I say pickleball, they don’t know what it is. It’s an
For the first time last winter, the Grand Hall Studio in Farmington offered pickleball, an active sport of seniors. Amy Nielsen, caretaker of the Grand Hall Studio, plans to again offer pickleball there, starting in October. Ruth Jones of Farmington was one of several seniors who took advantage of the offering last winter. She can’t wait to start playing again. (Photo by Jennifer Chick)

Potential progress, problems with more early childhood funding by Joe Nathan SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE
National Education Association President Dennis Van Roekel’s recent visit to Bloomington highlighted the potential of more funding for early childhood education. Perhaps unexpectedly, the visit also highlighted possible problems. Led by Hillcrest Community School fifth-graders Sara Grosser and Gregory Pedenko, Van Roekel, Education Minnesota president Denise Specht and Bloomington Federation of Teachers President Wendy Marczak spent about an hour at Hillcrest. Then they met with parents and educators at Olson Middle School. Van Roekel and Specht praised the Minnesota Legislature for providing more than $100 million in additional funds for all-day, every-day kindergarten, as well as to serve more 3- to 4-yearolds. Van Roekel explained, “The best day to plant a shade tree is 20 years ago. The second best day is today.” He and Specht stressed extensive research supporting high-quality early childhood programs. Hillcrest Principal Paul Schullo was asked if the school had formally stud-
Sun Thisweek Columnist
Joe Nathan ied the impact of their early childhood programs. “Not yet,” he replied, adding, ”We need to.” Both union presidents recommended researching and sharing results with the public and policy makers. Bloomington and other districts with early childhood programs may want to contact the St. Paul Public Schools, which has done formal (and encouraging) studies of their early childhood programs. Districts also might contact University of Minnesota professors Arthur Reynolds and Judy Temple, nationally known authorities in this area. They are widely recognized for careful, unbiased research. (More information is at www.cehd.umn.edu/icd/faculty/reynolds.html.) Recently, I asked Reynolds for his priorities in funding early childhood programs. Before Gov. Mark Dayton’s suggestion to spend more and legisla-
ture agreement, Reynolds, in an email, recommended that: “Public funding for preschool to third grade programs should be a high priority and should take precedence over full-day/every day kindergarten. High quality and accessible preschool/prekindergarten and fullday kindergarten, however, are critical elements of the pk-3 continuity system. The system should be worked on together. ... any weak link in the system during these ages will hinder children’s school progress. The current gap in pre-k access in MN compared to other states in the Midwest is worrisome as is that for full-day K.” The Legislature funded all-day kindergarten. Despite Reynolds’ advice and some increased funding, thousands of youngsters from Minnesota low-income families still don’t have access to high-quality early childhood programs. Teachers raised several issues during the visit that need attention. Rachel Biggs, a Hillcrest reading and math intervention teacher, explained: “We can tell the difference between students who attend district and other early childhood programs. Students who attended district programs often are better prepared.” She believes this is because there’s good communication between district
early childhood and elementary teachers. When there is good communication, early childhood programs help students develop skills and behavior that help elementary students succeed. Anne Roush, a kindergarten through fifth-grade physical education teacher, noted two issues as early childhood and all-day kindergarten expands: finding space for the programs and working out staffing, including preparation time issues. Les Fujitake, Bloomington’s thoughtful and open-minded superintendent, responded and acknowledged these concerns. He explained that the district had a task force working on them. Van Roekel’s visit was designed to highlight early childhood and other issues (which I’ll discuss in future columns) and to generate positive publicity. Visiting schools and listening to teachers, parents and students is a great way to understand both the progress and possible problems that well-intended, research-based changes can produce.

Undo all business-to-business taxes in the Unsession Feb. 25 by David C. Olson SPECIAL TO SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE
Gov. Mark Dayton has coined the 2014 Legislature as the Unsession, saying he’ll concentrate on ideas to make state government better, faster and simpler. He’s asking Minnesotans to submit ideas to eliminate unnecessary or redundant laws, rules and regulations, and getting rid of anything else that makes state government nearly impossible for people to understand. We respectfully ask that repeal of the sales tax on business-to-business (B2B) services leads the agenda. Businesses should contact the governor and their lawmakers, and ask them to commit now to eliminating all three B2B taxes in the first week of the Legislature, which will convene Feb. 25. In May, the Legislature extended the sales tax to three B2B services: repairs of business equipment and machines, including farm machinery; purchases of telecommunications equipment by telecommunications providers; warehouse
David C. Olson and storage services. The first two taxes went into effect July 1; the warehouse tax is scheduled to take effect April 1, 2014. At minimum, B2B taxes create an administrative nightmare and expense for many businesses. At worst, the additional tax burden places Minnesota businesses at a competitive disadvantage with their peers across the nation and world. That’s especially true in the warehouse and storage industry, which already operates at slim margins and is very mobile by its nature. The additional cost is prompting many warehouse managers to talk about moving elsewhere. Together, these taxes take a toll on jobs and the state’s economy. The Minnesota Chamber of Com-
merce and our statewide network of local chamber partners pressed hard for all three B2B taxes to be repealed during the special session in September. Though the governor expressed support for repealing the sales tax on farm equipment repairs, in the end the decision was made to only consider disaster relief. The decision is especially disappointing because DFL leaders acknowledged the taxes were a bad idea. Dayton says repeal of the new B2B taxes should be considered when the Legislature convenes next year. Businesses cannot make decisions based on a promise of what might be done. We’re asking that legislators pledge now to repeal all three B2B taxes. Eliminating the tax on farm repairs is a good start, but it doesn’t go far enough. The repeal should also occur for the thousands of other businesses negatively impacted by these new fixed costs. Dayton demands that the business community show how the state treasury will make up for the lost revenue, if these taxes are scrapped. We put the challenge
back in his lap. Policy-makers have options. There is a current budget surplus plus there’s plenty of opportunity to find $310 million of spending efficiencies in a $38 billion budget. Early in the 2013 Legislature, we identified more than $1 billion in spending reductions and forwarded those to the Dayton administration and legislative leadership. Let’s revisit those suggestions. The new budget increased spending by $1.6 billion, a sizable portion that has not yet taken effect. There’s similar opportunity to scrutinize and pare these expenses. We’re confident that Minnesotans can step to the plate and help state agencies find ways to streamline operations and still deliver necessary services. We’re ready to answer the governor’s call; it’s an excellent starting point to lay out an agenda for the Unsession. David Olson is president of the Minnesota Chamber of Commerce.

Letters Knocking on the schoolhouse door To the editor: How many Catholics remember attending catechism in the classrooms after school? I do at my grade school in Illinois. I distinctly remember Father Pesit. A priest who had been in combat as a military chaplain and took no sass or back talk from us students (he broke a pencil over Cliff Beato’s head simply because Cliff was tapping on his desk as the priest spoke.). And today you would be hard pressed to find any school that hosts catechism classes. As a society, we’ve allowed the state to remove most every reference to God from the schools. While the establishment clause was meant to prevent a state established religion, the modern interpretation is to ban all religions by a misinterpretation of that clause in our Constitution’s first amendment. It was never meant to ban religion, it
was meant for the federal government to embrace all religions. Allow the Christmas tree, the Menorah etc. etc. Embrace all religions. Don’t ban them. Yet the New York Supreme Court in December 2011 banned all church and religious organiza-
tions from renting empty classrooms for non-secular activities. While this is one approach to avoiding the appearance of establishment of religion, embracing all religions would be the alternative. Someone asked me that since I believe God and Jesus, how God could ever

Curbing funding: It’s not an ‘extreme’ position To the editor: I would like to comment on the “Zoo is worthy to support” letter in the Aug. 23 Sun Thisweek. My family and I also enjoy going to the Minnesota Zoo, as it is definitely a premier zoo venue, and one we should be proud of as residents of Minnesota. However, whether it’s the Minnesota Zoo or stadiums built for professional sports, why does our government continue to support more and more of these endeavors?
On the surface, some non-essential projects appear to be worthy ones; however, our Minnesota Bill of Rights, Section 1, object of government, states, “Government is instituted for the security, benefit, and protection of the people, in whom all political power is inherent, together with the right to alter, modify or reform government whenever required by the public good.” The South Metro Tea Party’s core values as posted on their Facebook page state, “We the People stand for Constitutionally Limited Government, Fiscal Responsibility, Free Markets and Individual Responsibility.” The Tea Party supports the object of government as stated in Section 1 of our Bill of Rights. It appears, though, that William Cory Labovitch in his letter to the editor finds the Tea Party to be putting “extreme activism” pressure on Tara Mack and Anna Wills, as both state representatives (districts 57A and 57B) did not endorse additional funding for the Minnesota Zoo. This despite the March 30, 2013, Star Tribune article, “Minnesota Zoo plans ambitious, costly makeover,” where it was reported that, “The Minnesota Zoo is a state agency; about 29 percent of its roughly $25 million operating budget is public funding, and the state has provided tens of millions for major capital projects, such as new exhibits.” Taking a position that we need to limit funding to non-essential programs and showing fiscal responsibility within constitutionally limited government confines, when our state government doesn’t have an income problem, rather a spending one,
doesn’t seem to me to be an “extreme” position to take. BILL FREDERICKS Lakeville
Another disaster is coming To the editor: Disaster relief. That was the topic of a recent and very brief legislative special session. This was needed to ensure federal aid would flow to help the victims of some very real natural disasters in our state. There were some disasters left out, however: some man-made disasters created by the legislators themselves. There was no action on the looming tax increases on warehouses and farm equipment repairs. These will hurt business people and farmers directly and almost certainly cause price increases on the food and products that every family purchases. Gov. Mark Dayton and the DFL-dominated state Legislature created this disaster with their last-minute tax bill, which some speculate was passed without their understanding of all the details. Where was DFL Sen. Greg Clausen? Changing his initial “no” vote to a “yes” in favor of all the new taxes. There was also no action on reversing the impending unionization of home day care operations. This disaster created by the governor and DFL Legislature could force day care owner-operators to either join a union or pay “fair share” fees, increasing the cost of child care for families.

Public Safety Sentencing Monday for crash that killed two area students by Laura Adelmann SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE
A Burnsville teenager will be sentenced in juvenile court Monday morning for a 2012 car crash that killed two of his four passengers. Joshua L. Decoteau, 18, pleaded guilty in juvenile court Sept. 13 to two felony counts of criminal vehicular homicide involving gross negligence, one felony count of criminal vehicular operation (involving gross negligence resulting in substantial bodily harm), and one gross misdemeanor count of criminal vehicular operation (involving gross negligence resulting in bodily harm). Decoteau admitted to
intentionally swerving as he drove Buck Hill Road at 96 miles per hour on Aug. 21, 2012, then losing control of his 1992 Toyota Camry, which plunged down a hill and through a fence, flipping multiple times before crashing onto I-35, killing his friends Alesha Roehl, 17, and Fred Alexander, 16. A 16-year-old from Lakeville and a 17-yearold Burnsville boy were also injured in the crash. Roehl of Castle Rock Township and Alexander of Burnsville were students at Lakeville’s alternative learning center; Decoteau and two other passengers attended Lakeville South High School and suffered non-life-threatening injuries.
Decoteau was a new driver and had only had the car for about a week before the crash. Because Decoteau was 17 at the time of the incident, the case was filed under Minnesota’s extended juvenile jurisdiction statute, and both a juvenile and an adult prison sentence will be issued, according to Dakota County Attorney James Backstrom. The juvenile court will retain jurisdiction over the case until Decoteau turns 21, and the adult sentence would only be imposed if he violates terms of the juvenile sentence.

Police probe bomb threat at Walgreens Apple Valley police responded to a report of a bomb threat Monday afternoon at the Walgreens store located at 15250 Cedar Ave. No explosive devices were found, police said. As a precautionary measure, the store was evacuated and the immediate area secured following the report of the threat at 12:51 p.m.
Police were assisted by the Apple Valley Fire Department and a K-9 unit from the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport Police Department during the incident. No arrests have been made in the case and the investigation is ongoing, police said. The incident was the second bomb threat in less than two weeks at an
Apple Valley Walgreens store. On Sept. 4, police responded to a bomb threat at the Walgreens store at 14020 Pilot Knob Road. That same day, police in Rosemount investigated a bomb threat at the Walgreens at 15034 Shannon Parkway. No explosive devices were found in either of the Sept. 4 incidents. —Andrew Miller
Standoff ends with arrest in Apple Valley A police standoff Friday in Apple Valley ended with the arrest of a man suspected of attempted assault. Police were called to the 12100 block of Geneva Way at about 2:22 p.m. on a report of an attempted stabbing. The victim reported he had been threatened by the suspect with a knife and was “left in fear for his life,” police said. The suspect, who lives
near the victim on Geneva Way, had reportedly fled the crime scene in a red van, and when police went to his residence they noted a red van in the driveway. Attempts to contact the suspect by phone and through the use of a public address system were unsuccessful. After Apple Valley police requested assistance from the Dakota County Mutual Aid and Assis-
tance Group – a regional team of police tactical officers and crisis negotiators – the suspect came out of his residence at about 5:20 p.m. and surrendered without further incident. He was then booked into the Dakota County Jail in Hastings. The suspect was expected to be charged this week in district court, police said. —Andrew Miller

Good enough to eat, but not a bite to be had Delectable Designs gift shop combines art and food by Jennifer Chick SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE
A new gift shop in Farmington will satisfy any sweet tooth, but customers don’t need to worry about gaining even an ounce. Delectable Designs at 431 Third St., No. 4, is a gift shop selling greeting cards, giftware and art works related to food, cooking and dining. “Everything is related to food, cooking and dining except there is no actual food here,” owner Karen Ogden said. “I love everything related to food, and I was a personal chef for awhile, but I didn’t want to go back to cooking for a career.”
After rebounding from a second career as a personal chef back into corporate America, Ogden found herself wanting more. She decided to turn her efforts back toward the culinary world. At first she contemplated starting a food truck business, but she wanted more interaction with customers so she headed in an artistic direction. “Food is really my passion, and I asked, ‘How could I get back into that industry?’ ” she said. Ogden wanted to create a tangible item that she could sell so she decided to combine two of her creative outlets: letter writing and photography. She chose to use her food

photography skills to create food-related greeting cards, a niche market she found to be underserved. Then she took her idea one step further to conceptualize Delectable Designs. She wanted to open the gift shop in Farmington, a town where she has lived for the last eight years. She works with 16 other craftspeople to create a gift shop filled with delectable treats, though none are for the eating. “I think the more varieties of goods in the store, that is what is going to keep people interested,” Ogden said. She wanted to sell pieces that would leave an impression long after the last piece of pie was gone. She visited art guilds, fairs, and festivals, handing out “Artist Wanted” cards. Currently, she has 16 craftspeople lined up to sell in her shop, with the potential for several more as she visits with local artists. Theresa Hoaglund, of Mantorville, is one of those artists. Delectable Designs features several of her furniture pieces, and she visited the shop’s grand opening last Thursday. “I was intrigued by her concept of having a gallery slash art shop that was all about food,” Hoaglund said. “What I love about this is promoting the arts everywhere. It (the sign) doesn’t say gallery and art, but when you walk in the door, it will.” Ogden and others in
When Karen Ogden (center) opened Delectable Designs in August, she created a space where area artists could display and sell their food-related art. Carla Webster (left) and Theresa Hoaglund, both artists from Mantorville, were excited to see their items on display at Delectable Designs’ grand opening Thursday, Sept. 12. Hoaglund hopes to see the arts promoted outside of the typical art gallery setting where items can be more accessible to community members. (Photo by Jennifer Chick) Farmington are hoping her shop is another incentive to attract destination shoppers. “It’s another big opportunity for Farmington,” said Lee Smick, Farmington’s city planner and economic development manager. “We are starting to get this niche of specialty shops: Vintage Marketplace, Market on Oak, and now this beautiful shop. It’s a huge opportunity for people to shop the streets of Farmington and stay pretty much here. I think they are putting Farmington on the map.” Delectable Designs is housed in a building that
was at one time, decades ago, the Ford dealership. Molly and Steve Aaron bought the building last December and completely remodeled it, inside and out, splitting the building into four office spaces. “My husband and I are into taking vacant properties and making them into something,” Molly Aaron said. “I think she’s done a great job. It’s beautiful, and it’s been really fun to see her get it ready.” Delectable Designs is open Thursdays, noon to 7 p.m.; Friday and Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. After Thanksgiving, Ogden plans to be open on Sun-
days as well, hours tentatively set for 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. “I think Christmas is going to be crazy,” Ogden said. Delectable Designs website, www.delectabledesigns.com, will be going live in two weeks and will provide another place where consumers can buy much of what is available in the store. With her shop open for a little more than a month, Ogden is encouraged by the response so far. “People love it,” she said. “They know these items are one of a kind.”

Bloomington says yes to rehabilitating bridge Project cost estimated at more than $14 million by Mike Hanks SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE
With seemingly little choice, the Bloomington City Council agreed to move ahead with rehabilitation of the bridge over Long Meadow Lake. The bridge, one of two that once spanned the Minnesota River valley to connect with Eagan and Burnsville, will cost an estimated $12.7 million to rehabilitate. With an estimated $1.96 million in maintenance costs for the 50-year span following the project, the $14.67 million project is double the estimated cost to replace the bridge. But replacing the bridge wasnâ€™t really an option for the council. Thatâ€™s because a bridge project â€“ replacement or rehabilitation â€“ needs the approval of the Federal Highway Administration, and the city was informed by letter in August that â€œthey will not support a replacement option,â€? according to Karl Keel, Bloomingtonâ€™s public works director. The highway administration deems a full-scope rehabilitation as feasible and prudent, Keel told the council.
â€œThose terms are very loose,â€? he said. â€œThereâ€™s a lot of gray area around those terms.â€? The councilâ€™s support for rehabilitating the bridge was not unanimous, as the council has long favored the less expensive replacement option. But with new state-approved funding that would cover the added costs for rehabilitation, a majority of the council agreed to seek the more expensive option in light of the highway administrationâ€™s decree. The city has approximately $14.3 million available for a bridge project. Prior to the 2013 legislative session the city had $3.3 million in state bonding for the project and a $2 million federal grant. Previous estimates pegged the cost of rehabilitation at approximately $12 million. The council was unwilling to finance the balance of a rehabilitation project on the backs of Bloomington taxpayers, deeming the former state-owned bridge to be a regional asset. But the Legislature provided an additional $9 million tied to funds for future development of Mall of America. In order to access those development dollars, the

Council Member Vern Wilcox opposed moving forward with a rehabilitation project, saying a replacement could be built 3 feet higher than the existing structure, which is subject to flooding during

times of high water levels. Council Member Thomas Hulting sided with Wilcox, questioning the wisdom of rehabilitating 19th-century engineering when a modern replacement would be superior in every aspect. The bridge has been standing silent for more than a decade. Inherited by the city when the Highway 77 river valley overpass opened three decades ago, the bridge would provide pedestrian access across the lake, and subsequently the Minnesota River under the Highway 77 bridge. Mayor Gene Winstead acknowledged that the councilâ€™s opinion was that it was fiscally prudent to replace the bridge, but noted that the city inherited the bridge from the state, which has not provided the funding to rehabilitate it. â€œAfter decades, I think weâ€™re really now pointed in a very firm direction,â€? he
said. With the councilâ€™s endorsement of a rehabilitation project, a memorandum will be sent to the Federal Highway Administration, which the highway administration will distribute to regulatory agencies for comment. During that distribution, the council will hold a public hearing on the project, possibly by midNovember. A bid package for the project should be ready by fall 2014, with work on the bridge commencing that winter, Keel noted.
About the bridge
funneled traffic across the Minnesota River, but the bridge tandem was abandoned by the state in 1981, replaced by the Highway 77 overpass to the east. The Long Meadow Bridge remained in place, touching down on paved road between the lake and river, while the swing bridge was removed. Long Meadow Bridge and a pedestrian span under the Highway 77 overpass connected bicyclists and walkers from one side of the river valley to the other. Rehabilitating the bridge will restore that connection, a connection that has support from residents of many communities beyond Bloomington. Vehicular traffic, albeit limited, was prohibited from the Long Meadow Bridge in 1993, and it was closed to all access in 2002 when it was deemed unsafe for pedestrians.
The bridge was one of two spans that crossed the river valley at the south end of Old Cedar Avenue in Bloomington, connecting the city to Dakota County. The bridge crosses Long Meadow Lake, but doesnâ€™t reach the other side of the river valley. Contact Mike Hanks at A separate swing bridge firstname.lastname@example.org.

Eagan leading metro for trees Forestry experts more concerned with canopy coverage than with numbers of trees by T.W. Budig SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE
Blazing autumn colors lend matchless evidence to the strength of the urban forest. The Metropolitan Regional Parks System, with 96 parks and trails overall in the seven-county metro area, includes about 59,000 acres and logged an estimated 45 million visits in 2012, testimony to the value placed on leafy spaces. Urban trees are valuable in reducing storm runoff and cooling otherwise sizzling pavement. Just as well-placed trees can keep homes cooler by blocking sunlight from shining through windows and heating floors, the same is true with sidewalks, bridges and other outdoor hard surfaces. Experts are getting away from counting trees to determine the robustness of the urban forest, said Gary Johnson, University of Minnesota Extension Service professor. Instead, they’re thinking in terms of canopy cover. An emphasis on sheer numbers has resulted in the methodical planting of trees in the hard, dry soils along street curbs. The mortality rates for these trees is extremely high, Johnson said. An ideal canopy, at the minimum, is perhaps 4045 percent coverage, Johnson said. Downtown Minneapolis, with single-digit percent canopy cover, isn’t close. “Pretty pitiful,” Johnson said.
Johnson, a specialist in urban and community forestry, mentions Eagan and Minnetonka as suburban cities with top-notch forestry programs. Gregg Hove, Eagan supervisor of forestry, is something of an apologist when it comes to suburban trees. With an empathy that explains 20 years on the job, Hove cited the loss of topsoil, compaction and other suburban realities that trees, meant for loamy and moist forest soils, confront along culsde-sac. “If you could ask a tree, they’d want nothing to do with living in the city,” Hove said. “Everybody wants the maple and birch, but neither one of those trees should be planted in an urban yard. They’re forest trees.” Examining aerial photos of Eagan, one dating from the 1950s and the other recent, Hove noted the city is leafier than 60 years ago. Tree-lined neighborhoods have replaced farm fields. Development and healthy urban forests are not mutually exclusive, Hove said. “They’ve done a pretty good job on this down here (in Eagan),” he said. One hallmark of a good forestry program, Johnson believes, is community buy-in. In Eagan, buy-in took herculean form in 2001 when the community rallied around saving a 27-inch diameter bur oak, perhaps 150 years old, threatened by the saw
as a result of city improvements. Some $50,000 in private donations was raised to have the Grandfather Tree, as it was dubbed, dug out and moved. Its root ball was 25 feet across, 6 feet deep. “It was either one of those deals where we pulled it off, I kept my job, or got fired,” Hove said. Eagan’s forestry program strives for thriftiness. Downed or dead trees are mulched — 3,000 yards of mulch came out of a recent bad storm. Another innovation had the city using lumber milled from city trees for paneling at a public safety center. The arrival of Dutch elm in the 1970s spurred development of a forestry program in Eagan, Hove said. That’s true with many cities, he said. “Is it expensive to have a (forestry) program? I think it’s more expensive not to have a program,” Hove said. “I tell my boss the tree inspector talks to more people and shakes more hands than the mayor does.” Although giant root balls are not common in Minnetonka, Jo Colleran, the city natural resources manager, senses a deep appreciation for nature among residents. “They love their trees, they love their wetlands, they love the natural features of the community,” Colleran said. One task for Colleran and Emily Ball, Min-
netonka forester, in part is community outreach. A comprehensive forestry section was created on the city’s website. The city sponsors an annual tree sale, with some 1,300 to 1,500 trees sold last time to about 700 households. According to Ball, not everyone knows how deep to plant a tree or how to prepare a root ball. “But we’re always working to improve that,” she said. Urban forestry practices that make sense in one city may not in another. While some cities use vibratory plows to sever the shared root systems between oaks to combat the spread of oak wilt, sloping ground, garden walls and other unique factors can limit the use of trenching, Ball noted. Human emotions also play a role in urban forestry. “I think people (are) much less excited about protecting their elms than their oaks,” Ball said. “I think people get more attached to oaks.” One lesson the Minnetonka city staff tries to teach is plant diversity. Insect pests tend to go for specific trees, Ball said. “We don’t know what will be on our doorstep next. But if you have diversity of tree species, you have some resiliency,” she said. One insect pest at the door is emerald ash borer, a nonnative insect that kills ash trees. Quarantines for
As the result of Eagan community involvement, an oak tree, which became known as the Grandfather Tree, was moved in order to be spared the saw in 2001. (Photo from the city of Eagan) Ramsey, Hennepin, Houston and Winona counties exist, making it illegal to move ash firewood or other ash materials, which could spread the infestation, out of these counties. The ash borer hasn’t been found yet in Minnetonka, Ball said. “We’ve been actively looking for it,” she said. Hove noted that the insect has been spotted at Fort Snelling, and he isn’t hopeful. “We assume it’s here,” he said. Illinois is getting “slammed” by the pest, Johnson said. Still, he considers the emerald ash borer a “wimpy” bug, one
that, without human assistance, will advance slowly. The tree experts urge landowners to select trees appropriate in size and to the climate for their properties. Hove warned against “volcano mulching,” or piling mulch high on tree trunks. Mulching is good, but volcano mulching is an invitation to disease. Remember where trees like to grow, Hove suggested. “Try to imitate what’s happening out in the woods.” Email T.W. Budig at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Caught poaching? Your gun could be confiscated DNR auction for hunting, fishing equipment is Sept. 28 by T.W. Budig SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE
People can keep their memories but perhaps not their equipment if caught poaching. The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is holding a public auction of confiscated hunting and fishing equipment on Sept. 28 at Hiller
Auction Barn in Zimmerman. More than 200 guns — top-of-the-line brands like Benelli, Beretta and Weatherby — are going on the block. About a dozen muzzle loaders are included in the mix. Along with the guns, about 40 bows, including a handful of crossbows, will go to the highest bidders
beginning at 10 a.m. Other confiscated items on auction include deer antlers, an all-terrain vehicle, a personal watercraft, snowmobiles and a boat-motortrailer combination. Tree stands, traps, fishing rods and reels, trail cameras, spotlights and other gear will be sold. Auction proceeds will be deposited in the state
Game and Fish Fund. Proceeds from the sale of vehicles confiscated in DWI arrests are deposited into a DWI forfeiture account. Background checks are made on gun buyers. Hiller Auction Barn is a federally licensed gun dealer. The auction service is 2 miles east of the Highway 169 and the County Road

4 intersection in Zimmerman. A list of DNR-confiscated auction items is on the Hiller website at www.hillerauction.com. Acquiring inventory Most of the confiscated firearms came into DNR possession as a result of deer baiting violations, DNR Assistant Director of Enforcement Rodmen Smith said. In Minnesota, hunting deer with bait is illegal. All bait must be completely removed 10 days prior to hunting, Smith said. While many pinches for illegal baiting come as the result of tips from hunters hunting nearby lands, hunting party members have occasionally turned in members of their own party for illegal baiting, he said. Losing out on the chance for a big buck as the result of illegal hunting really irks some hunters, Smith said. Amateur sleuths, inspecting the upscale brand names of some of confiscated guns, might think the former owners were wealthy. But Smith said that would be a false conclusion. Some people simply must have the most up-to-date, expen-
sive firearms available, regardless of their pocketbook. You can find others, wealthy people, carrying the beat-up, old guns their grandfathers gave them, Smith said. Regarding hunters simply making mistakes in the field — mistakenly shooting a doe, thinking it was a buck, for instance — Smith said sports people do sometimes turn themselves in. “If you make a mistake, call and let us know,” he said. Generally, when people step forward and admit a mistake, things go better for them, Smith said. But genuine poachers have no intention of turning themselves in. Turn in Poachers, or TIP, is a private group dedicated to stopping poaching. People can report suspected poaching by calling the statewide, toll-free TIP line at 800-652-9093. Tips that are not time sensitive can be given online. The names of callers can be kept confidential, with callers being eligible for rewards up to $1,000. Email T.W.

Retiring Lakeville chief is lauded Gathering highlights Vonhof’s years of service by Laura Adelmann SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE
Police officers, family and friends crowded into the Lakeville City Hall foyer Sept. 16 in recognition of retiring Chief Tom Vonhof’s contributions to the city. After 33 years with the department and seven years as chief, Vonhof will retire on Oct. 1; the council meeting marked the last one Vonhof will attend as chief. City Administrator Steve Mielke outlined Vonhof’s career, highlighting initiatives he forwarded like Pure Performance, a drug and alcohol prevention program for high schools athletes, and Heart Restart, community-wide emergency training to save cardiac arrest victims. Mielke noted Vonhof has held every position in the department, including an undercover narcotics investigator and assistant agent in charge of the South Metro Drug Task Force. He credited Vonhof for
building a police culture that is proactive not reactive and described a trusting relationship between the two leaders. “I value his ability to see through the fire and provide me guidance,” Mielke said. Each City Council member described their gratitude for Vonhof’s work and appreciation for his leadership in the department and community. Lakeville Mayor Matt Little described how impressed he was with Vonhof’s thoughtful articulation of his opposition to the legalization of marijuana, a topic Vonhof discussed during a debate at the University of Minnesota Law School where Little is a student. Little called Vonhof’s work with property management around the city to help reduce crime in Lakeville “innovative,” “unique” and “very intelligent.” “I think the world of you,” Little said. “We’ll leave your position open for a couple more days if you reconsider.”
Council Member Bart Davis thanked Vonhof’s family for their sacrifice. “You are called out for service at all times of the day and night,” Davis said. Vonhof said when he took the job as a Lakeville patrol officer in 1980, he had no idea of the adventure that was ahead. At first, the department building was located in a converted two-stall gas station building on Upper 209th Street. Vonhof previously described it as “primitive” and said officers would have to chain prisoners to door handles. Sophistication came in time, with the new police station becoming a model of design for other law enforcement agencies for features like windows between offices that accommodate teamwork and its computer forensics lab. He said Lakeville is a special community “where citizens truly appreciate and value their law enforcement officers,” adding the department has been built on the idea
of partnership with citizens and strengthening those relationships. “It’s that partnership, and the way we approach law enforcement in this community that has been so effective in building a safe community,” Vonhof said. “And it’s unique to Lakeville. It’s unique to our community, and I’m so appreciative to have been an officer in this (city).” Earlier this year, that community partnership was demonstrated with Hosanna Church members who have joined in the fight against human trafficking in all forms. Vonhof’s officers received specialized training given by Adri Carlson, leader of the Hosanna trafficking justice group, that included how to respond to traumatized victims who are often brainwashed into defending their traffickers. City Council Member Doug Anderson, a fellow Rotarian, said Vonhof has demonstrated friendship, high ethical standards, service and

Struggling Eagan church finds savior Former Beautiful Savior Lutheran acquired by Crown of Life by Jessica Harper SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

For years, Beautiful Savior Lutheran Church faced a shrinking congregation, lacked a full-time pastor, and was on the brink of closing. But just when all seemed lost, the Eagan church was saved. The 30-year-old church — located at 4150 Pilot Knob Road — was acquired in July by Crown of Life Lutheran Church in West St. Paul, which enabled the congregation to continue its mission under a new name. Beautiful Savior member Melodee Cannon, 57, said she was delighted by the acquisition since her family attended the West
St. Paul church when she was a child. “Hopefully we will be able to grow our membership again,” the Eagan resident said. Now known as Crown of Life, the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran church began its uphill battle in 2003 when members began to leave the congregation for other churches that offered Christian schools. Beautiful Savior offered a preschool program but it struggled to succeed, and eventually was discontinued, church officials say. Over the next 10 years, membership dropped from approximately 100 parishioners to about 40. The church’s plight
worsened when its lead pastor retired in 2011 and the congregation struggled to find a full-time replacement. Over the next two years, a number of pastors from nearby Lutheran churches led the church on a temporary basis. With 900 members and two pastors, officials at Crown of Life Lutheran Church in West St. Paul knew presiding over both churches would require a third pastor. By July, the church hired the Rev. Zach Pudlo. As a 27-year-old fresh out of seminary school, Pudlo had a tall order but was eager to take it on. “I saw an opportunity for evangelism and to grow a church,” Pudlo
said. “I’ve done a lot of evangelism, so I thought it was a good fit.” With a pre-K-8 Christian school at the West St. Paul campus, Pudlo said he hopes families interested in a Christian education will again be drawn to the Eagan church. In addition to reaching out to families, Pudlo said he plans to become involved in the community to enhance the church’s presence. “It’s not about numbers,” he said. “It’s about sharing God’s word in a world that really needs it.” Jessica Harper is at jessica. firstname.lastname@example.org or facebook.com/sunthisweek.

Cycling league ‘pedals’ fun, excitement Area athletes part of new league’s growth by Betsy Helfand MURPHY NEWS SERVICE
After the combined team of BurnsvilleLakeville North-Lakeville South won the inaugural boys/girls team Minnesota High School Cycling League championship in 2012, the league kicked off its second season Sept. 8 in Inver Grove Heights with more than 300 racers. That is almost double the number of bikers from last season. “I think we started off on a really good note this year with our first race,” league director Gary Sjoquist said. One key difference from last year is that results are now tracked via chips, as opposed to manually last season. Sjoquist said the timing system took a little bit longer than he would have liked, but aside from a few minor glitches, there was little confusion and very few problems. That isn’t the only thing new to the league this year. Burnsville and Lakeville North-Lakeville South are no longer on the same squad. “Cycling introduces teenagers to a lifelong sport that is part of a healthy lifestyle and connects them with the outdoors and the environment,” said Burnsville coach Chris Harvey. “Our
team has participated in volunteer trailwork sessions to help build and maintain the local mountain bike trails. Mountain biking also attracts students who don’t fit into a typical ball or stick sport, about 50 percent of my team had not participated in a high school sport until they joined the mountain bike team.” Representing her school, the Blaze’s Jordan Horner finished first in the varsity girls race with a time of 1 hour, 25 minutes, 20.16 seconds. Horner accumulated 1,725 points over four races last season to be the top girls finisher overall. “Like other endurance sports, being a top athlete dedication and the desire to train everyday,” Harvey said. “The athletes like Jordan Horner, the 2012 Minnesota High School Cycling League champion has been training and racing for many years.” Dakota County dominated the top of the podium in the four-lap girls race with Apple Valley’s Camille Sjoquist in second place. Carley Endersbe and Libbey Endersbe, of Lakeville North-Lakeville South, finished fourth and fifth, respectively. Caitlin Juvla was sixth for Apple Valley. The day also included

(Photo submitted) races for junior varsity, sophomore boys, freshman boys and a combined underclassmen girls. The cycling league launched a series of four races last year with 160 athletes from 15 teams. This year, there are more bikers, teams and races. The league will have
five races each season and has more than 25 teams participating. Teams are comprised up of high school students; sometimes multiple high schools combine to form a composite team. Eagan, Eastview and RosemountApple Valley-Eagan also have teams. Sjoquist said this jump
in participation didn’t come as a surprise to him. “I figured we’d be growing at a pace like this,” he said. “The kids have fun and the fact that (they’re) racing for (their) high school is kind of unique and that seems to draw all the kids together.” Four of the races will be at different courses
this season, and Sjoquist said the change of venues is helpful in the league’s growth. “I’m deliberately moving the race courses around the state because it helps drive the development of teams,” he said. Sjoquist said the league wanted to do a Saturday race just to see what it was like. That race will be held on Sept. 21 at the Jail Trail in St. Cloud, and will be the second race of the season. Other races this season include Sept. 29 at Hillside Park in Elk River, Oct. 13 at White Tail Ridge in River Falls, Wis., and the final race, the state championship, Oct. 27 in Mankato. Other area students who placed in the top five in the Sept. 8 races were: Junior varsity girls: 4. Nicole Jensen, Lakeville North-Lakeville South; 5.

Buckthorn-removal season is back in Twin Cities Metro area cities educate residents on eradication techniques by Kyle Stowe MURPHY NEWS SERVICE
Buckthorn removal is nothing new to the Twin Cities area. “We’ve been working more than 10 years to clear in some city parks,” said Janet Van Sloun, Minnetonka natural resources restoration specialist. “And we’re still working.”
This fall, a number of metro-area towns and cities will continue efforts to remove buckthorn from city parks and encourage residents to slow the growth of the invasive species. By setting an example on city-owned grounds and taking the time to educate people about the
LANDING MORE SALES
importance of clearing buckthorn, experts believe they are making progress in restoring natural habitats. “We do a lot to help get the word out and educate people about the topic,” Van Sloun said. “And we’re seeing results.” European buckthorn, a shrub-like plant that can grow into a small tree, has run rampant in Minnesota and other parts of North America since it was introduced to the continent in the mid-1800s. Native to Europe, the species has no known pathogens or predators to limit its growth away from home. Buckthorn forms a dense, thick understory in native woodlands that out-compete native plants for sunlight, said Laura Van Riper, Minnesota Department of Natural Resources terrestrial invasive species coordinator. She added that the end result isn’t pretty. “It shades out native plants from underneath,” Van Riper said. “It creates a buckthorn monoculture.” With no known biocontrol to exterminate
plants by the masses, cities are continuing to turn to residents to take it upon themselves to remove buckthorn from their own property, Van Riper said. But there’s a catch. “It’s a multi-year commitment,” Van Riper said. “If you cut the adult trees down you’ve brought a lot of light into the site, and the seed bank in the soil will germinate and it will grow back up.” Van Riper added that removing buckthorn in the same spot over a number of years requires patience, but there are rewards over time. “It takes years of effort especially up-front,” Van Riper said, “with the hope over time we’re doing less work each year.”
buckthorn, Caleb Ashling, Burnsville natural resources technician, said. “The city will come pick up buckthorn if at least three people from a neighborhood submit an application for pickup, Ashling said. “We hope it makes buckthorn more of a conversation topic to neighbors.” The city of Eagan has conducted a buckthorn removal assistance program for several years that provides free pick up of cut buckthorn from private residential properties. Private property owners should contact the Forestry Division tree inspector (651) 675-5300, prior to conducting any buckthorn control activities, to set up a required site visit. Apple Valley, Farmington and Lakeville residents can use city-owned tools for pulling buckthorn plants from the ground. The city of Apple Valley no longer offers free buckthorn pickup. Pickup is not available in Lakeville or Farmington.
efforts in the Twin Cities area. “We have a lot of nice success stories from different cities and parks that have made efforts and have really made noticeable improvement,” she said. While buckthorn is too widespread to ever be eradicated, Van Riper said the hope is that the continued application of management techniques will reduce its abundance. She said there are still many questions to be answered that may help lead to more effective removal efforts. “We’re still learning about what we can do to reduce its success and increase diversity at a site,” Van Riper said. Van Sloun believes that slowly, but surely, cities that make buckthorn removal a priority will continue to see noticeable change. “The difference is like black and white,” Van Sloun said. “It’s worth it.”
To better teach residents about the benefits of restoring natural habitats to a buckthorn-free state, cities around the metro are doing a number of things to help raise awareness. Kyle Stowe is studying Burnsville uses its webjournalism at the Universite, quarterly newsletters, sity of Minnesota. and a new program that Looking ahead Van Riper is optimistic encourages neighborhood chatter to help thwart about buckthorn removal

Blaze comes up big in girls soccer showdown Burnsville scores twice in final 12 minutes against Eastview by Mike Shaughnessy SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE
Burnsville vs. Eastview in girls soccer might be the least acrimonious rivalry in the South Suburban Conference. After the Blaze’s 2-0 victory over the Lightning on Tuesday night, players mingled, shared stories and wished each other luck the rest of the season. A Burnsville player wanted to hear more about Eastview forward Kellie McGahn’s trip to Sweden with her club team. It’s a rivalry that’s rooted in respect, although the tension might increase in October when the section playoffs start. Burnsville, the 2011 state Class AA runner-up, was moved this season to Section 3AA, where Eastview is the twotime defending champion. “They’re one of the best teams in the state,” Burnsville coach John Soderholm said of Eastview. “We always have good, competitive games with them, and we think they play the game the right way. Our games always

(Photo by Mike Shaughnessy) have good intensity.” “Our kids know a lot of the Burnsville girls from club soccer and other places,” said Eastview coach David Herem. “I think our girls enjoy the rivalries they have with the other (District) 196 teams (Apple Valley, Eastview and Rosemount), and they

have a lot of respect for Burnsville.” On Tuesday, the second-ranked Blaze scored two goals in the final 12 minutes to defeat thirdranked Eastview. While the victory might give the Blaze a leg up in the race for the No. 1 seed in Section 3AA, it’ll be a moot

ponents, which could be significant when the section playoffs are seeded next month. Nathan Wilson scored with about 10 minutes remaining in the Eastview game. Earlier, an apparent Apple Valley goal was waved off because of an offside and Eastview goalie Kyle Lamott saved an Eagles penalty kick. “Eastview’s a really good team, easily a top-10 team in the state,” Scanlon said. “If we can beat them, we can beat anybody.” Apple Valley, which struggled to find the net earlier in the season, is starting to score a few more goals. Abdirahman Ali Hassan and Collin Trankel had two goals each in the victory over Burnsville. Hassan, a senior and a former junior varsity player, has lent speed to the Apple Valley lineup, Scanlon said. Patrick Erredge was in goal for the three consecutive victories and has played seven games in a row overall. Apple Valley’s winning streak ended when it played to a 1-1 tie against Lakeville North on Tuesday. The Eagles were to take on Prior Lake at home Thursday. They will play at 7 p.m. Saturday at Henry Sibley, another potential Section 3AA opponent.
If South Suburban Conference boys soccer coaches were looking for parity this season, they found it. At the end of last week, after every team had played three league games, only one had yet to lose to a conference opponent. That was Eagan, which had two victories and two ties. That’s good news for a team such as Apple Valley, which was hoping to improve rapidly in the second half of the season and now might have a conference championship to play for. Going into this week’s play, Eagan held the league lead while five teams – Apple Valley, Eastview, Prior Lake, Bloomington Jefferson and Bloomington Kennedy – were tied for second at 2-1. Apple Valley’s 1-0 victory over Eastview on Sept. 12 helped tighten the standings. “We lost 18 guys from last year, and that’s a lot of experience to lose,” Apple Valley coach Chuck Scanlon said. “Our goal is to be playing our best in the (section) playoffs in three weeks, but we’ve been on a nice little three-game run. Apple Valley beat Park of Cottage Grove 2-0 and Burnsville 8-1 before upsetting the defending state champion Lightning. Email Mike Shaughnessy at That gave the Eagles (4- mike.shaughnessy@ecm3-2 overall) a 3-0 record inc.com. against Section 3AA op-
into the net. Barry had no opportunity to recover. Peterson got an assist on the goal. With 1:28 left, Hartmann headed in a corner kick by Megan Engle. Eastview had the wind advantage in the first half but couldn’t score the first goal, which likely would have been huge in a game between evenly matched opponents.”We had it in their end of the field most of the first half and we had some chances,” Herem said. “We just couldn’t convert.” Eastview (9-2, 3-1) also has conference powers Lakeville North, Prior Lake and Eagan remaining on its regular-season schedule. The Lightning will play host to Lakeville North on Sept. 24. That doesn’t leave a lot of time to brood over the loss to Burnsville. “We played a good game, and it doesn’t end our season,” Herem said. “If we play them again, we’ll be ready, and so will Burnsville. But we’ve still got to play Prior Lake, Lakeville North and Eagan, so it doesn’t get any easier. I wish it did.” Email Mike Shaughnessy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Eagle Invitational attracts strong competition Top five Class AAA volleyball teams will play this weekend

point if Burnsville reaches the final. That game is scheduled to be played at Burnsville High School regardless of whether the Blaze is involved or where Burnsville is seeded. Of more immediate importance is it kept the Blaze undefeated (8-0-1 overall, 4-0 SSC) head-
ing into Thursday’s showdown against Lakeville North, which also was 4-0 in the conference. On Sept. 24, Burnsville will play at Prior Lake, which also is undefeated in the conference. When Burnsville plays the SSC powers, it can count on an airtight defense. The Blaze has won or tied 22 games dating to the start of the 2012 season. In those games, it has had 21 shutouts. “We have a lot of experience on defense,” Soderholm said. “Abby Keirstead was a secondteam All-State player last year. Amanda Hartmann is a very good stopper. Betsy Peterson is in her third year on the varsity. We put Kayla Johnson on McGahn (in Tuesday’s game), and she did a great job against one of the best forwards in the state. And our goalkeepers (Darby Lofthus and Josephine Archambault) have been spectacular.” Sophomore midfielder Hannah Mitby scored on a shot from the penalty area with 11:14 left in Tuesday’s game. Eastview goalie Christina Barry moved to her right when Mitby struck the ball, but the shot deflected off an Eastview player and went
Eagan has been in the Eagle Invitational volleyball tournament every year since 1998, but Wildcats coach Kathy GillenMelville said she has few good memories about it. That has nothing to do with the way the tournament is run and everything to do with how Eagan has played, she added. “We’ve never done well in that tournament,” she said. “Never won it, although we’ve been in the championship match. We’ve had years where we won the state championship (2001, 2003) and didn’t win that tournament.” So why do the Wildcats keep going back? Because it’s the best opportunity they’ll get all season to play a lot of high-caliber competition in one place,
at one time. Sixteen of the state’s top teams will come to Apple Valley High School for the tournament Friday and Saturday. Apple Valley assistant coach Jeff Groves, the Eagle Invitational tournament director, works months in advance on the tournament field, analyzing teams that might have strong returning groups of players. This year’s Eagle Invitational field includes the top five teams in the state Class AAA rankings (Chaska, Lakeville North, Eagan, Hopkins and Blaine), the top-ranked team in Class AA (Marshall) and the defending state Class A champion (Bethlehem Academy). Lakeville North, the defending Class AAA champion, will defend its title at the Eagle Invitational. Eagan, which was 10-0 after sweeping Bloomington Jefferson in a South Suburban Conference match Tuesday night, might have a chance to break its jinx at the Eagle Invitational. Senior cap-
tain Taylr McNeil is a focal point for the Wildcats as one of the state’s top hitters. Gillen-Melville also described McNeil as one of the state’s best backrow players. “We don’t take her off the court,” the coach said. Through 10 matches, the Wildcats have shown they’re a strong all-around team. “We’ve been looking for more balance, and we’re getting it,” GillenMelville said. “Our middles (senior captain Celia Bertsch and junior Callie Schapehahm) have done a really good job.” Eagan also is getting quality setting from two players – junior Madeline McNeil (Taylr’s sister) and ninth-grader Brie Orr. The Wildcats defeated Bethlehem Academy 2510, 25-15 in the championship match of the Shakopee Invitational. They also opened South Suburban Conference play last week with a four-set victory over an improving Rosemount team. Chaska is ranked first
in Class AAA after defeating Lakeville North in the championship match of the Southwest Minnesota Challenge in Marshall. North (10-1) is led by Alyssa Goehner, possibly the state’s best all-around player, and defensive specialist Abby Monson. Apple Valley, the host team, is 5-5 under new head coach Heather LaChapelle, who played for Gillen-Melville at Eagan High School. The Eagles finished fifth at the Aerie Challenge in their home gymnasium two weeks ago. Also in this year’s Eagle Invitational field is Lakeville South, led by junior setter Jade Tingelhoff. The Cougars were 6-6 in their first 12 matches. Eagle Invitational pool play starts at 5 p.m. Friday. The championship match is scheduled for 2:30 p.m. Saturday.

Lightning falls to North’s second-half blitz Apple Valley drops to 0-3 after loss to Prior Lake by Mike Shaughnessy SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE
Undefeated Lakeville North scored four touchdowns in the second half on its way to a 33-10 victory over Eastview in South Suburban Conference football last Friday. The Lightning took a 10-7 lead in the second quarter on a 20-yard touchdown pass from Mark Dwyer to Montrell Moore. Eastview’s Brian Tramonte recovered a muffed punt at the North 22-yard line, setting up the go-ahead score. Sam Fluegge kicked a 31-yard field goal in the first quarter, giving the Lightning a 3-0 lead, but Eastview was shut out in the second half. The Lightning played without their standout running back, junior Will Rains, who was on the sideline but not suited up. Tommy Hutsell, a junior, got most of the carries in Rains’ absence. Lakeville North had the first possession of the second half and went 80 yards in 4 minutes, 26 seconds for the go-ahead

hand of â€œMr. Marketâ€? cannot be expected to lift all boats. It is the marketâ€™s role to pick and choose those endeavors that will provide investors with the best return on equity, regardless of the greatest public need. The governmentâ€™s necessary role is to appropriately fill those gaps. Some writers fault public financing of so-called â€œfrivolousâ€? items like sports stadiums and light rail. They cite statistics about poor ridership on new bus lines. Advocates have cited data about millions in business profits for local merchants because of sports investments and hefty ridership data on light rail and express bus lines, which have far exceeded predictions and are growing. In past years, an over-reliance on private car use has helped produce difficult traffic jams with resulting deterioration of both our highway infrastructure and air quality. Climatologists cite additional data showing reduced greenhouse gas emissions where there is greater use of public transit. Climate change discussions aside, who would complain if their commute time as well as their stress level were significantly reduced on daily trips to and
from work as a direct result of greater use of multiple mass transit options? A private project? Sorry, no, just not in the cards. Critics of public spending decry it as inherently â€œwasteful,â€? without a great sense of personal ownership in it. Others point to models in some industrial countries which seem to have a greater interest in public assets, able to be used in common. They say some of these assets, like nature itself, are finite, fragile and must be preserved. Responsibility there must be used to shepherd and encourage public investment in common resources. I hope Minnesota can lead in this latter kind of â€œconservation.â€?
ton Rotary makes a donation back to the group. â€œWe help other people in their fundraising, which also helps us to fundraise,â€? Rychner said. â€œItâ€™s a way for the community to help us support Ramble Jam, but also, they support their own community group.â€? Volunteers also receive free admission based on how many hours they give. They come from Farmington, Dakota County, and other Rotary clubs. Festival-goers also attend the event and volunteer. They help with a variety of jobs, including security, stage crew, bartenders, grounds crew, parking guides and sanitation. Many of the volunteer slots are already filled,
but the Rotary club is still looking for volunteers, especially for late Saturday night shifts. Rychner said people have hesitated to volunteer as security, but Rotary hires a private security firm and multiple sheriff deputies are on the grounds at all time. â€œAnybody can volunteer for security because there is a lot of important support work needed,â€? she said. â€œItâ€™s really to make sure that the people are safe and they have a good time.â€? Because that is what Ramble Jam is all about, a good time. With Jerrod Niemann headlining Friday night, and Rodney Atkins headlining Saturdayâ€™s festivities, itâ€™s a chance to kick back with songs like â€œLover, Loverâ€? and
â€œFarmerâ€™s Daughter.â€?And fans love a chance to support their local Twin Cities artists, such as Hitchville and the Devon Worley Band. Both bands will be making their second appearance at the event. â€œWeâ€™re super excited,â€? Rychner said. â€œItâ€™s stressful, but itâ€™s a really great event.â€? Visit the Ramble Jam website at www.RambleJamCountry.com and click on the Volunteer tab to learn more. Profits from Ramble Jam go back to Farmington in the form of high school scholarships, a STRIVE mentoring program, senior citizens luncheon, park and recreation scholarships, and donations to 360 Communities, along with other causes.
â€œ(unionization) bill is political payback, not good policy.â€? With all the new taxes and spending by the governor and DFL Legislature, a disaster that hits close to home is this: our local school leaders are asking for a property tax levy increase. So while the DFL is raising taxes and helping their political allies, the local public schools are still forced to ask tapped-out families for one more tax increase. Disaster. PAT STALEY Rosemount
The necessary role of government To the editor: Unlike a recent letter writer, I suggest that government spending is an essential part of our stateâ€™s economy and can spur to economic growth. One key economic responsibility of government is to be the economic engine of last resort. One can cherry-pick specific projects where the economic benefit is still out, but who except the government bears the cost of the 35W bridge rebuilding project? The invisible

Junior goalkeeper Kyle LaMott has been outstanding in the nets so far this season. He is a major reason that the Lightning are 5-2 and have been ranked in the Top 10 teams in the state so far this season. Kyle led the metro area in save percentage (92.9%) last week while his team went 1-1. Kyle also saved two penalty kicks last week raising his total to three on the season! Kyle has started this season right where he left off when he was a starter in goal as a sophomore for the State Champion Lightning. He has consistently made difficult saves look easy and routinely comes up big when his team needs him the most.

BASEBALL, from 1A his life, filled with corny jokes and heartfelt stories. When remembering him, Ruthie VanderLaan, Amy and Mike used words such as “goofy,” “humorous,” “laughing” and “sarcasm” to describe Richard. “I think he’s where I got my sarcasm,” Amy Gresser said. Not only did Richard VanderLaan’s big personality stick with relatives, but also his “baseball family.” Young men and baseball veterans from around the southern suburbs attest to the impact he made on countless lives. BA 191 transformed into a sports haven for local youths, ages 16 and up, KIDSPO, from 1A which will talk about the importance of oral health and offer a trivia game four times during the day at the main stage.

The following acts on the main stage will be Twin Cities authors Lynn Garthwaite and Gordon Fredrickson. Bloomington writer Garthwaite will read from one of her Dirkle Smat books at 10:25 a.m. Although Dirkle has a funny name, he’s a serious explorer who takes readers on fantastic journeys. Lakeville writer Fredrickson will read from “If I Were A Farmer” at 11:15 a.m. using props and projected images about oldtime farming days based on Fredrickson’s experiences growing up around Lakeville. Primrose School of Eagan and Lakeville will lead an interactive music performance at 11:40 a.m. during which children will be invited on stage to help. The Eagan Fire Department will give a fire prevention education presentation at 12:05 p.m. Lakeville-based Twin Cities Ballet and Ballet Royale of Minnesota, which also offers classes at the Burnsville Performing Arts Center, will give a sneak peek of its winter performance of “The Nutcracker” at 12:55 p.m. Models in the Old Navy Fashion Show will walk across the stage at 1:20 p.m. while Corrina Marie Swiggum, Miss Minnesota’s Outstanding Teen 2013 of Prior Lake, will serve as the guest emcee.

He made it a personal endeavor to ensure every player had a means to participate. “He never had a son, so those boys were his boys,” Ruthie VanderLaan said. “He followed them all the way through. He knew everyone by name.” Acting as a fatherfigure to many, Richard VanderLaan would find a way to help every boy afford the fees. If players could not pay the costs, he covered expenses from his own pocket. BA 191 has made great strides for local baseball since its beginning two decades ago. The association began raising money for upgrades and improve-
ments at Alimagnet Park through pull tab sales at bars in 1997. According to the Star Tribune, the association has raised over $460,000. Richard VanderLaan was an active part of the community in more ways than just sports. He served on the Art and All That Jazz Board, the Burnsville Community Foundation Board, the Burnsville Economic Growth Commission, the Burnsville Chamber of Commerce and was a member of the American Legion Post 1700. One of Richard VanderLaan’s joys was projecting his radio-like voice while announcing baseball games at Alimagnet. He sprinkled in jokes and
Center’s 80,000-squarefoot gym will be carnival games, inflatables, iDance, Studio Bodair of Lakeville’s crazy hair, Tiny Diva Princess Party face painting and The Works Museum of Bloomington’s engineering and art activities. Children will have free use of the Community Center’s The Blast play area. AirMaxx Trampoline Park and Fun Center of Eden Prairie will have their trampoline launch pad just outside the lower level entrance of the Community Center. Kids can leap high in the air while safely strapped into the harness (additional cost, weather permitting). Gamin’ Ride will offer video games in its outdoor gaming truck as well as iDance in the gym. Flip Your Lids will offer a safe medieval knight duel using foam padded jousting poles and a whole lot of goofiness. There will be lunch and snack options at the Green Mill food booths. Kids Corner, sponsored by Sesame Street Live, will have activities for young children and Elmo will be reading a story every hour starting at 10:30 a.m. The first 300 children through the door will each receive a voucher to a performance of Sesame Street Live’s “Make a New Friend,” Jan. 24-26, 2014, at Target Center. Admission to KIDSPO is free, but some activities will require tickets or unlimited play wristbands. Wristbands can be purchased in advance for $7 by going online to http:// kidspo2013.com until Sept. 27 or $10 at the door.
Volunteers KIDSPO is seeking volunteers to help with some of the activities. “This is a great opportunity for students looking to earn some volunteer hours,” Jech said. Volunteers receive a free T-shirt and a $5 Green Mill voucher for lunch at the event. To see a list of activities available, click on our volunteer link at www.kidspo2013.com. There’s a lot of work going on behind the scenes to make this event success. A planning group has been gearing up for it after launching the idea nearly a year ago. “KIDSPO wouldn’t be possible without the support of its sponsors,” Jech said. “They have been great partners in helping to put on this event that will bring together people from throughout Dakota County and beyond for a great time.” Gold sponsors: Park Chrysler Jeep of Burnsville and Primrose Schools of Eagan and Lakeville.

sometimes teased the audience in between pitches. Although Richard VanderLaan never played the game, he made sure to attend every inning he could. Two years ago he suffered a stroke and could no longer take his regular spot at the park. Yet baseball was still in his heart throughout his recovery. According to his wife and daughter, “baseball gave him self-esteem, hope and a reason to live.” Richard VanderLaan’s dream remained that the American Legion Cobras would make it to the American Legion World Series. Before his death, he witnessed his dream come true in August 2013.

Innovative Educational Programs Coordinator Cathy Kindem reported that one of the district’s goals is to promote education-business partnerships that create opportunities for learners to prepare for the world of work. Stream Global Services’ Earn to Learn Program proposal fit the goals of extending learning beyond the classroom. She then introduced Suzie Heilman, a lead teacher in the program and also a business education teacher at Eagan High School. Heilman outlined the program and introduced the Leadership Team. The district entered a partnership this summer with Stream Global Services to pilot a Career Hub: Earn to Learn Program with Apple Valley High School (AVHS). Counselors identified 50 AVHS juniors and seniors who were lacking three or four credits for the program which ran for eight, 16-hour weeks. Students were paid $7.25 per hour with the possibility of earning a $300 bonus upon successful program completion. The program, focusing on credit recovery, workplace skills, career exploration and life skills, was funded by Stream Global Services. District 196 provided transportation and guidance/counseling to assign actual credits. Many students need or want to earn money rather than attend summer school classes, and Stream Global was able to provide funds to pay students to earn credits and learn job/life skills such as preparing a resume, interviewing, banking, volunteering, etc. Eighty-two percent of students graduated or completed the program. Nine participants failed to complete the program; two due to behavior, three to attendance and four who were no shows. Heilman reported on gender and ethnic make-up; the variety of classes offered and possible wages earned. The average wage earned was $1,014.53. Heilman noted 77 percent of the participants earned their full bonus based on the success criteria she also shared. Liya Mamo, a junior at AVHS and program participant, shared her experience and highly recommended the program. Heilman shared a few comments from participants’ feedback, reported on the lessons learned, outlined next steps for a proposal for next summer and the plans to replicate the program across Stream locations. Board members emphasized the wages for students did not come from the school district and commented on a successful community collaboration. Jen Menke, Stream Global Services Program Director, provided background on Stream Global Services. Their company values being a good member of community and giving people the opportunity to build a career with a sustainable wage. In the past they donated funds to other community programs and this year decided to use that corporate donation to facilitate this collaboration. Kindem defined the STEAM movement as when art and design are added to the equation, STEM is transformed into STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics). One objective of the movement is to encourage integration of art and design into kindergarten through grade 12 education. Kindem noted Glacier Hills Elementary School of Arts and Science was an example of STEAM in the district and introduced Science Specialist Jill Jensen and Arts Specialist Erin Paulson. Jensen and Paulson shared several examples of the success Glacier Hills students have experienced in the STEAM room. Staff members have worked hard applying for grants to set up the room. Students have been exposed to using a Makerbot Replicator 2 3D printer; laser cutters, a Silhouette Cameo electronic cutter, and hand and power tools. Berenz acknowledged the great work being done by students and staff at Glacier Hills and how that work has resulted in closing the achievement gap. Director of Finance and Operations Jeff Solomon reviewed the audit process, explained why it was being discussed at this time and spoke about projected year-end results and the impact on the financial plan. School districts are mandated by statute to have an annual audit, the results of which are not yet final, however, the administration believes it is extremely important to share publicly the best estimate of what our financial performance was in 2012-13 in order to provide the public with the need for additional referendum revenue. Solomon noted at the time the final budget was adopted, it was reported that the district would be performing better to budget by about $6 million. On June 30, 2013 the pre-audit close indicated a general fund balance of $40,357,693. The projected budget had a fund balance of $38,348,612 and the variance from the budget is $2,009,081, meaning the district actually performed $8 million better to budget. Exact figures will be available once the audit is complete. Solomon noted that the district has balanced the budget and is spending within its means. The impact on the financial plan indicates no adjustments for the 2013-14 school year. If the levy is unsuccessful in November, there would need to be adjustments of $10 million in 2014-15 and an additional $20 million in adjustments in 2015-16. Berenz shared background on why there is a need for a levy vote. She noted the district has made $34 million in budget adjustments since 2009, including cutting nearly 200 jobs and implementing salary freezes for employees. Despite these adjustments, as Solomon just reported, the district is facing a projected $30 million shortfall in the next two years. On the November 5 ballot, Berenz said voters will see a request to revoke the existing levy and replace it with a new, 10-year levy for $375 more per pupil. This is estimated to generate $10 million per year, or three percent of the district’s total annual operating budget. It is estimated the levy would cost an additional $15 per month, or fifty cents per day, for the owner of an average-value home in the district, which is $225,000. Nearly $4 million of budget adjustments for 2014-15 are maintenance and operational efficiencies that will be implemented whether or not a levy is approved. These include: • Graphics and Printing Department operations; • Elimination of the K-Plus scholarships; • Reduction of employer contribution to health insurance; • Better Energy Efficiency (BEE) and P-card rebates will remain at district-level; • Access Other Post-employment Benefits (OPEB) when fully funded, and • Increase third-party billing for special education. If the levy is approved, the district avoids an additional $6 million in budget adjustments for 2014-15 and lessens the impact of the projected $20 million of adjustments for 2015-16. The district would be able to maintain its “Triple A” philosophy of academics, arts and athletics, and continue to offer quality programs in early childhood learning, STEM and college-credit opportunities. If the levy is not approved, some of the adjustments for 2014-15 would include: • Class size increases at all grades; • Cuts to curricular and cocurricular programs, including gifted and talented; • Increased cocurricular participation fees, and • Elimination of 5th grade band, 9th grade B-team sports and the Developmental Psychology program at the high schools. Berenz would implement a process to identify the $20 million in cuts needed for 2015-16 but noted, just for perspective, $20 million is the equivalent of approximately 300 teaching positions. She requested that voters ask questions and make informed decisions. Berenz reported four people filed affidavits of candidacy for the three School Board seats that will be filled in the November 5, 2013 election; incumbent board members Art Coulson, Gary Huusko and Mike Roseen, and Craig Angrimson. She also noted practices for fall sports have started; more than 11,000 elementary students are scheduled for literacy assessments; new teachers are in workshops this week and all teachers return on August 26, and the first day of school is Tuesday, September 3. Motion by Roseen, seconded by Magnuson and carried, with six members voting in favor and no member voting in opposition, to adjourn the meeting at 7 p.m. Published in Lakeville, Apple Valley, Burnsville/Eagan, September 20, 2013, 23689
INDEPENDENT SCHOOL DISTRICT 196 DESCRIPTION OF PROPOSED SCHOOL CONSTRUCTION PROJECT The Rosemount-Apple ValleyEagan Independent School District 196 is proposing the construction of a new learning center facility to be located in Apple Valley. The cost of the proposed Learning Center facility project is estimated at S 14,960,000. The district is proposing to finance the project using a 15-year lease-levy purchase under M.S. § 126C.40. The new facility will be approximately 52,113 square feet and provide space for the following programs: Early Childhood Family Education, Early Childhood Special Education, School Readiness/Bridgeto-School, Adult Basic Education, General Education Degree, and English as a Second Language. The district will terminate leases at Rahncliff Learning Center and the Early Childhood Learning Center in Apple Valley and consolidate programs into the new facility. School board approval is required to proceed with these projects. The school board believes that the new learning center project is in the best interest of the district. REVIEW AND COMMENT STATEMENT Based upon the department’s analysis of the school district’s required documentation and other pertinent information from sources of the Minnesota Department of Education, the Commissioner of Education provides a positive review and comment. ADDITIONAL INFORMATION IS AVAILABLE Persons desiring additional information regarding this proposal should contact the school district superintendent’s office.

Lakeville actor has Hollywood on her resumé
Ben Rosenbush at LAAC
Jane Hammill cast this month in ‘Good People’ at Park Square Theatre Jane Hammill’s return to acting has brought her some choice roles. After a 15-year hiatus, the Lakeville actor made her return to the stage in 1998 with a part in a community theater production of “The Wizard of Oz.” From there, film and TV roles started coming – she’s appeared in commercials for the Minnesota Twins and Grand Casino, and she scored a part in the 2009 Coen brothers comedy “A Serious Man,” in which she played the secretary of main character Larry Gopnik. “I missed it a lot – it gets in your soul, and I felt like I had to get back into it,” Hammill said of her time away from the
stage, which was prompted by a move out of state and the duties of family life. Her latest acting gig has her cast as eccentric landlady Dottie in “Good People,” a stage comedy which opens Sept. 20 and runs through Oct. 6 at the Park Square Theatre in St. Paul. She’s also appearing in the film “Best Man Down,” set for release in November. The film was shot two years ago in the Twin Cities, and Hammill’s fellow cast members include Justin Long – known for his roles in “Dodgeball” and “Jeepers Creepers” – and Shelley Long, who played Diane Chambers in the TV sitcom “Cheers.”
Jane Hammill Hammill, who sidelines as a waitress at Tucci Benucch at the Mall of America, plans to take another break from acting – albeit a shorter one than her last hiatus – early next year. “My daughter’s getting married in January,” Hammill said, “and she wouldn’t appreciate it if I was doing a show during her wedding.” —Andrew Miller

Locally, the program is sponsored by the Minnesota Book Awards, a program of The Friends of the Saint Paul Public Library, as the Minnesota Center for the Book, the Minnesota Council of Teachers of English and Common Good Books. The contest asks readers to write a letter to an author describing how his or her work touched their life in a personal way. Authors can be of any genre or time period and can come from any country. The contest focuses on reader response and reflective writing and has three competition levels: Level 1 for students in grades 4-6; Level 2 for students in grades 7-8; and Level 3 for students in grades 9-12. State level judges choose the top essayists from each of the three competition levels who will advance to the national level. Prizes will be awarded to the top three winners of each competition level. A panel of national judges for the Center for the Book in the Library of Congress will select one national winner per competition level to receive a $1,000 cash award. The judges will also select one national honor per competition level to receive a $200 cash award. Entries will be assessed on three criteria: content, or the writer’s achievement in addressing the contest theme; exposition, or the writer’s use of language skills; and voice, the writer’s style and originality of expression. Last year’s contest attracted more than 1,400 participants from Minnesota. There are two deadlines for the competition: Dec. 10 is the deadline for Level 3: grades 9-12. Jan. 10, 2014, is the deadline for Level 1: grades 4-6, and Level 2: grades 7-8. For official guidelines and entry forms, visit www.thefriends.org.

Mixed Fall Planters, Squash, Gourds, Straw, Pumpkins, Fall Peppers, Mini-Pumpkins, Decorative Cabbage, Color Corn, Mums, Cornstalks, & more! Caution: Scary Fall Fun Ahead By Jennifer Chick Autumn is the perfect time to scare up some garden fun at Terra Garden Center in Lakeville. Their “monster” mums are really scary good, or create a Fall fantasy fairy garden from your wildest imaginings, or rake in the fall planting tips from their highly qualified staff of horticulture experts. Finding scary and colorful delights this time of year is easy at Terra Garden Center, located at 20230 Kenrick Ave., Lakeville. They’re stuffed with fun items for fall decorating. You’ll find Cinderella pumpkins, Red Warty Thing squash, white pumpkins, blue pumpkins, multi-colored corn, mini pumpkins, straw bales, mums, many varieties of squash, asters, kale, ornamental peppers, cabbage and more. As you change your seasonal decorations, don’t neglect your fairy gardens. You’ll find plenty of Fall inspiration for them too from the Harvest Kingdom fairy garden at Terra Garden Center. Terra also recently added a full line of NEW ceramic tabletop fountains so you can recreate the outdoors inside your home all winter. The mini-drought we’ve experienced through August and into early September makes it absolutely essential that gardeners should water in their trees and shrubs right up to the first freeze. Terra Garden Center co-owner Dan Silver says trees and shrubs need the extra moisture during a dry fall in order to store up energy and avoid winter burn. Terra Garden Center also carries an excellent product called Wilt-Stop, which helps protect plants during the winter months from dehydration. Wilt-Stop works especially well on evergreens, and the perfect time to apply is later in fall on a warm day. Make sure to drench the foliage with it to provide maximum protection. Co-owner Steve Risan also reminds people to stop fertilizing plants, trees, shrubs and grasses in the fall. If gardeners fertilize in the fall, it sends the plants the wrong message. This is the time to let them settle in for winter. Also, don’t forget to mulch first-year perennials with leaves or straw. Trim back hostas before the first freeze, because, as Dan advises, they turn into an ooey-gooey mess after a freeze. Something fit for a haunted house, but not so pretty in your flower beds nor very pleasant to remove. Many other perennials will benefit from a cutting back before the first freeze too. Don’t be afraid to trim them back. A good haircut now will mean a thicker, healthier plant in the spring. It’s best not to cut back grasses, daisy-like perennials and hydrangeas until early spring because of the interest they add to the landscape in the winter.
