Mayor seeks campaign sign truce until Labor Day Eagan’s Mike Maguire asks fellow candidates to join him in pledge to de-escalate local sign wars by Erin Johnson

EAGAN

THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

When Eagan Mayor Mike Maguire returned home after a recent trip to Little Falls, he said he was disheartened to see clusters of campaign signs along Pilot Knob Road. That was even before the Fourth of July, he said. “I don’t think I’ve ever seen

signs out this early,� he said. “It’s starting to look like November. And these are candidates not involved in a primary.� Maguire, who is seeking his second term as mayor, is asking other local candidates to join him in signing a pledge to delay putting up yard signs until closer to

the election. Candidates who sign the “No Sign Before Its Time� pledge agree to not post their campaign signs or allow them to be posted until after Labor Day. Not only do these signs clutter the landscape, Maguire said, but posting signs this early essentially extends campaign season by a couple of months.

“I think the campaign season is already long enough,� he said. “These campaign signs are political noise. I think it’s the kind of thing that turns people off to politics.� There is also a domino effect, he said – if one candidate posts signs, their opponent will also feel pressured to post signs. Maguire said he wants to lead the way on

a local level to de-escalate the sign wars. “The point was to say, look, I’m going to disarm, and hope the others follow suit. And if they don’t that’s their prerogative,� he said. Maguire said he successfully ran in two Eagan elections – first as a council member then as See Maguire, 18A

District above average on tests, with downturn in junior high by John Gessner

DISTRICT 191

THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

Its latest round of state testing shows troubling results in the junior highs and continued improvement in the elementary grades, Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School District 191 reports. On average, district students who took the MCA-II tests in April scored above the state average by .3 percent in math and by nearly 1 percent in reading, the district reports. “We continue to, overall as a school district, see improvement in both math and reading assessment scores,� Superintendent Randy Clegg said. “We’re also seeing im-

provements in scores for subgroups of students such as students who qualify for free and reduced-price meals, minority students, special education students.� But officials say there’s a troubling downturn at the junior high level on the annual tests, which measure student performance on state academic standards and are used to determine if schools and districts are making “adequate yearly progress� under the federal No Child Left Behind Act. Proficiency rates – the percentages of students who meet or ex-

ceed state standards on the tests – fell below state proficiency rates among junior high students. In reading and math, District 191 students roughly matched the state proficiency rates in third grade, the first year of testing, Clegg said. District elementary students bettered state proficiency rates by higher margins in each of the subsequent grades, he said. But in seventh grade, only 56.7 percent of district students met proficiency in reading, compared with 66.1 percent statewide, Clegg noted. In math, 60.7 percent of district students met proficiency, See District 191, 18A

A 3-year-old boy is safe and his parents have been located after a passerby found him wandering along a stretch of Eagan highway in the middle of the night. The passerby called 911 around 2:45 a.m. Tuesday, July 6, after spotting the boy wandering by himself along Highway 55 near Lone Oak Road. Officers unsuccessfully tried to communicate with the child, which may have been due to a language barrier, police said. They then knocked on the doors of some nearby homes and checked with area hotels and gas stations to try to locate the parents. When officers were unable to find them, they contacted social services and placed the boy in temporary care. The boy’s mother called police around 5:30 a.m. to report that her child was missing. The woman and her son were staying at a relative’s house in the area, she said, and she woke up to find him gone. After an initial investiga-

tion, officers determined the child woke up, walked down two flights of stairs, and let himself out by opening the automatic garage door. The button was within his reach, police said. The home where the boy was staying is located about a half mile from where he was found. “It appears to be a case where a 3-year-old woke up and let himself out of the house,� said Officer Danielle Anselment. “We’re just so thankful this turned out the way it did.� The boy was placed on a 72-hour hold when he was taken into temporary custody by social services, which is standard in these cases while the situation is being evaluated, Anselment said. “We have to determine that the environment is safe for the child to return to,� she said. It is possible the child will be reunited with his parents before that time, she said. Erin Johnson is at eagan. thisweek@ecm-inc.com.

Eagan man sentenced for harassment via website Site had domain name similar to city’s official site by Erin Johnson THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

EAGAN eagan.com. The city’s official site is www.cityofeagan.com. When Salberg’s site began posting derogatory information and photos, it led to confusion among residents. The site was previously used by Salberg to post parodies of city politics and announce the opening of new businesses. According to Eagan officials, the city began getting calls in January 2009 about the site’s content, with some residents concerned that the city’s site had been hijacked. Salberg used the Internet and e-mail to harass the victim and his family for nine months after the victim ended his affair with Salberg’s wife.

City chips in land for employer’s expansion plans in Burnsville



by John Gessner THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

City government is doing its part to help a major employer expand and bring more jobs to Burnsville. The City Council voted July 6 to transfer two parcels of land to Goodrich Sensors and Integrated Systems. The city is charging $1. The company will use the land, located at Judicial Road and 143rd Street, to meet green-space requirements as it plans a multiphase expansion of its 240,000-square-foot campus south of County Road 42 at 14300 Judicial Road. The land deal follows the Minnesota Legislature’s approval this spring of a sales-tax rebate for materials and equipment Goodrich will use in the expansion. The special legislation, expected to generate $4 million to $5 million in aid to the company, is contingent upon the company spending at least $60 mil-

  

             

        

        

lion on the expansion and adding at least 250 jobs to the 1,150 it provides in Burnsville and the 300 it provides at a smaller Eagan plant. “They expect to add several hundred employees through that multiphase expansion,� Community Development Director Jenni Faulkner said. A division of Goodrich Corp., the company supplies systems and services to the aerospace and defense industries. Formerly Rosemount Aerospace, it has been in Burnsville since 1978. The donated land, which came to the city through tax forfeiture, has a county-assessed market value of $310,700. The parcels have marshy soil and would need improvements to support development, according to the city. Goodrich’s first expansion phase, which includes a 10,000-square-foot wind tunnel for testing and 42,000 square feet of ad-

ditional manufacturing capacity, is scheduled to begin this summer and be finished by June 30, 2013. The $34.1 million project is expected to be accompanied by 40 new jobs for Burnsville’s third-largest employer. The average wage will be $30.28 per hour, according to the city. “These are head-ofhousehold jobs,� Faulkner said. Future phases could include office-space expansions totaling 100,000 square feet and a parking ramp. Goodrich currently allows the city to use 12 acres of its property for Rose Park, which has soccer fields and a softball field. “They allow us to use it for only a buck,� Mayor Elizabeth Kautz said. “Thank you, Goodrich. They continue to give to the community over and over and over again.� John Gessner is at burnsville. thisweek@ecm-inc.com.

“Get Your Butt Outside� campaign, Burnsville has distributed more than 650 self-extinguishing ash trays to both multifamily and singlefamily residences. Along with the Observatory Apartments, the program is in place at the Atrium Apartments, Burningham, Raven Hill, Berkshire, Coventry Court, Nicollet Ridge, the Pines, Dakota View, The Woods of Burnsville and Summit Park Apartments. The statewide campaign is sponsored by the Minnesota State Fire Chiefs Association in cooperation with the Minnesota Fair Plan, an insurance

industry association. Nationwide, careless smoking is the leading cause of fatal fires. Over the past six years, careless disposal of smoking materials has accounted for 28 fires in Burnsville, causing $4.5 million in property damage. Fire officials are concerned with cigarettes being carelessly flicked off decks at apartment buildings or being improperly “put out� in garden planters, among other ways that cigarettes are carelessly discarded. For more information, call the Fire Department at (952) 895-4570.

In Burnsville, the Observatory Apartments suffered $3 million in damage and hundreds of residents were displaced in a March 16 fire caused by the careless disposal of a cigarette. The Burnsville Fire Department is teaming up with numerous multifamily communities to raise the awareness through a public information campaign and distribution of self-extinguishing ashtrays.

Kline job fair may offer hope

  ďż˝

Many businesses with openings will appear at July 12 event THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

Minnesota’s unemployment rate is 7 percent, the nation’s is 9.5 percent, and some job-seekers have given up in frustration. But an upcoming job fair, a seeming anomaly in this economy, offers potential points of light. Forty-two, to be exact. That’s how many employers with current job openings are scheduled to appear at the Monday, July 12, event at Inver Hills Community College in Inver Grove Heights. Employers range from ACR Homes and Best Buy to the FBI, UPS and U.S. Federal Credit Union. The fair is sponsored by the office of 2nd District U.S. Rep. John Kline. The Lakeville resident is the senior Republican on the House Education and Labor Committee. “In addition to pursuing policies that create more job opportunities, Congressman Kline is committed to help-

ing out-of-work Minnesotans find jobs that enable them to support themselves and their families,� Kline’s spokesman, Troy Young, said in an e-mail interview. “The Career and Jobs Fair is one concrete way he can expose constituents to new opportunities to get back to work.� While Minnesota is faring better than the nation as a whole, “too many men and women are still out of work,� Young wrote. “Over the past 18 months, Congress has not only failed to stop unemployment, they are actually making the problem worse.� This month Kline voted against House Democrats’ bill to extend expiring unemployment benefits through Nov. 30. The Senate hadn’t acted on the measure earlier this week. “Rather than support a bill that was not paid for and would add $34 billion to the federal deficit, Congressman Kline supported legislation that would provide the same unemployment benefits and

offset the costs by using stimulus funds,� Young wrote. Kline’s prescription for job creation includes “tax incentives for small businesses and tax relief for working families,� according to Young. The congressman co-sponsored an alternative economic-stimulus bill that included cuts in personal income taxes which would have allowed “small businesses to reduce tax liability by 20 percent,� Young wrote. The fair, to be held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., will feature employers with openings in a variety of fields including health care, technology, finance and retail. Service organizations and a variety of educational institutions are also scheduled to attend. The free event will be held in the Fine Arts Building, 2500 E. 80th St., Inver Grove Heights. Parking is available in the Fine Arts parking lot.

Blackhawk Road will close July 12 From Deerwood to Highway 13 will be under construction through mid-August by Erin Johnson THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

A 1.3-mile section of Blackhawk Road in Eagan will be closed for construction beginning at 7 a.m. Monday, July 12. The stretch north of Deerwood Drive to Highway 13 is expected to be closed until mid-August, according to the city. Blackhawk Road last received major construction just 16 years ago in 1994. Road construction is typically expected to last 20 to 25 years, said City Engineer Russ Matthys. But the past few winters have brought major issues to Blackhawk, he said. Cracks in the road have caused â&#x20AC;&#x153;tentingâ&#x20AC;? in some sections, making for a very bumpy ride. Tenting is a condition

where localized heaves develop at pavement cracks or joints. The issue isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t as noticeable in the summer, he said, but in the winter â&#x20AC;&#x153;it got really rough.â&#x20AC;? City engineers think this is due to the layer of recycled concrete underneath the blacktop. The concrete absorbs water through the cracks in the road and then expands when the water freezes, causing bumps and humps to form in the blacktop. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Concrete doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem to stop reacting to water, so underneath these cracks it was getting more water and holding onto it,â&#x20AC;? Matthys said. The city will tear up and remove the existing blacktop and recycled concrete, then spread a layer of gravel before overlaying new blacktop. Homeowners on that stretch of Blackhawk will be accommodated throughout construction, he said. While the closure will affect

the roughly 8,000 vehicles that drive that section of the road each day, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s better to be able to close the road completely for this kind of project, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It really speeds up the time and saves us money when we can close road sections,â&#x20AC;? he said. The section of Blackhawk between Cliff Road and Deerwood will also be under construction, but it will not be closed to traffic because the blacktop is simply being resurfaced. That section does not have a layer of recycled concrete underneath the blacktop. Visit the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website for updated information at www.cityofeagan.com.

Man charged with criminal sexual conduct by Tad Johnson THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

A 40-year-old Eagan man was charged on July 2 in Dakota County District Court with four felony

first-degree criminal sexual conduct charges for alleged sexual abuse of a girl under 16 years old. Emmanuel Osei was charged with sexual abuse

involving multiple acts committed from 2006-2009, according to the complaint. The victim reported the alleged abuse to police on Friday, June 25. Four days later, the girl â&#x20AC;&#x201C; working under the direction of police â&#x20AC;&#x201C; invited Osei to her residence where police were in surveillance. Osei reportedly offered the girl money in exchange for sex during the meeting. A police officer then came out of hiding from a closet and placed Osei under arrest. The maximum sentence for one count of first-degree criminal sexual conduct is 30 years in prison and a $40,000 fine. Tad Johnson is at editor. thisweek@ecm-inc.com.

Opinion Thisweek Columnist Abiding by endorsement would have served DFL better by Tad Johnson THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

Four weeks from now, we will know the candidate who will appear on the ballot carrying the banner for the Democrats in the race for governor. Since the endorsing conventions ended, Republicans have been working hard to rally behind their endorsed candidate – Tom Emmer, a state representative from Delano. The Democrats for their part have been stealing most of the headlines from Emmer, but I’m not so sure for good reasons. From the outset of the endorsing process, one that has seemingly worked well for both major parties for many years, former U.S. Sen. Mark Dayton and former state Minority Leader Matt Entenza said they would not abide by the party endorsement and run in the Aug. 10 primary. I don’t like the message their decision sent to the delegates – “Thanks for your service, but all

your commitment was all for nothing. … Still, I’d like your vote in the primary.” I understand their rationale for not wanting to be beholden to the party endorsement since the process places the decision in the hands of a few delegates rather than a broader vote of the people. It is logical, but I rather prefer an endorsing convention (as Republican Marty Seifert did this year) because the volunteers who serve as delegates are often much more informed about the choices than those participating in a primary. Dayton and Entenza’s view that the endorsement comes at the hands of the few is also a matter of perspective. Voter turnout for primaries is often low, especially in this year’s nonpresidential election cycle. Still, I will grant them that having about 30 percent of likely DFL voters (based on the 2006 election con-

tested primary) is a broader indication of support. I’m sure their decision was not altogether altruistic. Dayton and Entenza have a significant amount of personal cash reserves from which to draw in funding advertising and campaign organization that exceeds what any candidate would have after emerging from this year’s DFL-endorsing process. The DFL-endorsed candidate, Speaker of the House Margaret Anderson Kelliher, has handled the situation with skill and grace. She has decided to focus on the issues and traveled the state relying on a door-to-door grassroots campaign to build support. Dayton and Entenza have also done their share of on-theground campaigning, but they also are relying heavily on a flood of television advertising to boost their fortunes. I hope voters aren’t swayed much by these kinds of commercials and rather focus on the issues. Other than differing back-

grounds and leadership styles, I don’t see fundamental differences among the three DFL choices. Like many people, I view candidates through the lens of how they stand on issues of importance. For a governor, those criteria don’t change from party to party. People look to state government primarily for decisions regarding education, taxation, transportation and health care. In the past two editions of the Dakota County Tribune Business Weekly, the newspaper’s Capitol Commerce pages have featured each of the three candidates. ECM capitol reporter T.W. Budig has done a good job setting forth their perspectives on the issues in the stories, which can be found online at ThisweekLive.com under This Week in Dakota County. Though there are slight differences among the three with regard to the major issues, the trio’s views are in stark contrast to Emmer. My sense is that people who

lean left politically would support any of the three over Emmer. Since that is the case, wouldn’t it make more sense to abide by the party endorsement and rally money and support behind a single candidate as the Republicans have done this year? I like the idea of rewarding hard work and playing by the rules. The endorsement process, though flawed in some ways, is a rule that aims to set forth the two major party candidates early enough so those moderate undecided voters can see them debate each other rather than three of the same kind. Since I like rules, I guess I’ll endure the primary challenge because it is part of the game. DFLers will have to wait until Nov. 2 to find out if they made the right choice on Aug. 10.

Letters Property rights are being taken away To the editor: Laura Adelmann’s story exploring the impact of recently enacted water management ordinances in the Vermillion River watershed gave a human face to the controversy over these unpopular regulations and showed how they take away people’s property rights for vague, unsubstantiated public benefits. Shockingly, Dakota County Commissioner Joe Harris was quoted as dismissing the controversy over “so-called property rights,” as though such rights really don’t exist. Harris has made it his mission to enact and oversee this most ambitious confiscation of private property seen in these parts. Instead of taking responsibility for this unprecedented land grab, he attempts to deflect blame to the state and federal government, saying that they are the bad guys who took away property rights. He just happens to be taking advantage of that, so don’t blame him. When did they repeal the Constitution? I remember our Minnesota Legislature responding quite quickly to the overwhelming public demand for stricter limits on the government’s ability to condemn land using eminent domain statutes back in 2006. As a practicing attorney, I have closely studied these laws and concluded that the requirement that landowners give the government a conservation easement over buffer areas without compensation violates the Constitution. This isn’t a liberal/conservative issue. I’ve seen liberals and conservatives

alike react in exactly the same way when their own land is threatened to be taken. The people who support such takings are generally do so because they think they’ll get something out of it. But after they take your neighbor’s property who will stand with you when the government wants yours? With a county commissioner who doesn’t believe in property rights, nobody’s property is safe.

Equal marriage rights for all To the editor: We read with interest T.W. Budig’s column of June 25. As we approach our 45th wedding anniversary, we affirm our belief in the sanctity of marriage and the importance of stable, committed, and lasting legal and spiritual unions. It’s time for Minnesota to address the injustice inherent in denying to same-sex couples the right to enter into such unions. No church or faith community should be forced to sanctify unions of which it does not approve, but neither should those groups be able to deny the legal and social benefits of marriage to same-sex couples. While we understand and support those who would have us begin by changing existing discriminatory laws, we believe that it is time to stop waiting and to move ahead toward a more just society with equal marriage rights for all.

Moderation isn’t right

Anderson will put words into action

To the editor: Larry Werner’s tribute to moderation (“A moderate Republican reminds us of better days,” July 2) completely misses the mark. There is nothing to be gained from moderation for moderation’s sake. And compromise is almost never the correct solution to any problem. On the biggest problem facing Minnesota government – the budget – moderation and compromise are what caused our current disastrous state of affairs. Specifically, if one side of this “polarized political environment” wants to overspend by some $6 billion, and the other side wants the state to live within its means, what is the common ground on which they can and should agree? It isn’t a question of one side being unwilling to cooperate and “find solutions,” but rather that one side is right and the other is wrong! The correct and only solution to our budget problem is for state government to live within its means, just as the rest of us must do. If Minnesota state government spending had simply kept pace with inflation since 1960, we would now be enjoying a $27 billion surplus instead of a $6 billion “shortfall.” Minnesota does not have a revenue problem; it has a spending problem and only one of the two political parties (and its candidates) recognize that. We must all pick a side in November – no “compromises.” Pick the right side.

To the editor: Please join me in supporting Diane Anderson because she is the best candidate running for state representative of House District 38A (includes parts of Eagan and Burnsville). Anderson is an excellent choice to represent us at the state capitol. She is someone we can count on to get things done. Anderson cares about our problems and she will work hard to make things better for people. She will be more effec-

tive in helping the citizens than our current representative. She will be a leader and a champion legislator for our issues. She has a lot of experience in getting legislation passed and this will be a big asset for us. I like Anderson’s views on the economy, jobs, taxes, education, and health care. She understands what needs to be reformed. She cares about making sure we keep jobs in Minnesota and growing the economy. We need to elect someone who will work to stop tax

increases, limit the growth of government and get rid of government waste. Anderson understands the importance of quality education and she will support our schools. She believes that we need to provide funding for our roads and bridges, which have been under-funded for years. We need someone with Anderson’s legislative experience and values at the state capitol. You can count on her to get things done. DAVE REW Eagan

Guest Columnist Photo ID would save money, increase voting convenience, confidence by Kent Kaiser SPECIAL TO THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

The Minnesota Voters Alliance recently unveiled its “Voter Protection Pledge,” a bipartisan initiative that aims to get candidates for public office to pledge support for legislation requiring photo ID to access a ballot and thereby protect the integrity and value of every Minnesotan’s vote. The alliance should be commended for its efforts. In poll after poll, an overwhelming majority of Americans have indicated support for instituting a photo ID requirement to access a ballot, including 71 percent of Democrats, 77 percent of Independents, and 86 percent of Republicans polled by the Pew Research Center for the People and the Press in 2006. The people want it, but so far, our elected officials have failed to give it to us, under pressure from liberal anti-reform special interests like ACORN, Common Cause, and the ironically named Citizens for Election Integrity in Minnesota. These groups naively claim there is no election fraud and that photo ID is therefore unnecessary. Yet there are scant procedures in place even to detect fraud and, even then, those procedures come after the fact. These groups and the politicians they support would happily sit idly by and allow double-voters, felons, noncitizens, and other ineligibles effectively to steal other people’s legitimate votes. Of course, most people understand that photo ID would increase integrity in Minnesota elections. Requiring and providing photo ID would also be a source of empowerment for disadvantaged people, especially minorities, women, homeless people, and elderly citizens, as whole worlds of commerce, employment, and activities that formerly were impeded would be opened to them. And, while the Minnesota Voters Alliance focuses on matters of integrity and empowerment, there are some other highly positive aspects of using photo ID in elections that often get lost in this discussion – namely, streamlining and modernizing election processes and saving tax dollars associated with election administration. Election technology now exists, and is being used in other states, that allows for swift and accurate election registration, Election Day check-in, and post-election administration. Such technology relies on interface with a driver’s license or stateissued photo ID. It is similar to technology that Minnesotans are accustomed to seeing when they go to purchase fishing and hunting licenses.

A swipe of a photo ID through a card reader could fill in the data fields in the state’s voter registration system, thereby eliminating common data-entry mistakes that take place with the current pen-andpaper registration system. Same-day voter registration would be incredibly fast. A swipe of such an ID at the sign-in table in the polling place on Election Day also would eliminate the need to line up by parts of the alphabet, eliminate the need for voters to say their name aloud when approaching the sign-in table, and would greatly speed up the lines in the polling places. This would also eliminate the need for post-Election Day data entry of voter participation history by hand, which after the 2008 election took several months and cost county governments tens of thousands of dollars to complete. Plus, photo ID is actually a “green” initiative: It would conserve thousands of pounds of paper currently used to print voter rosters in every election. Naturally, the overwhelming majority of election administrators across Minnesota favor installing this technology, but unfortunately they hold far less sway over legislators than the well-heeled, anti-reform special interests do. Still, when it comes to photo ID and election administration, the anti-reform special interests have no good response. What are they going to say? That they favor long lines, less privacy, and more errors in the voter database? Are they going to say they favor killing more trees and making local taxpayers pay tens of thousands more in staff costs? No. Instead, they use fear-mongering terms like “disenfranchisement” and “voter suppression” to distract attention from the real issues, even though places that have implemented photo ID for voting have seen huge increases in voter turnout as voters have felt more confidence in the election system. Or, they untruthfully claim that implementing photo ID for voting would be too expensive, even though there would be significant cost savings (as if we should want to have cheap elections instead of good elections, anyway).

Thisweekend 30 years later, high school friends share the stage again Jeff McAlpin and Shelley Kothe are adding another chapter to their shared history in theater with â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Music Manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; this month by Andrew Miller THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

Two veteran actors who cut their teeth doing student and community theater in Dakota County in the 1970s return to the stage at Eagan High School this summer for â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Music Man.â&#x20AC;? Jeff McAlpin describes himself as a â&#x20AC;&#x153;geeky theater kidâ&#x20AC;? when as a ninth-grader at Rosemount High School he goaded shy classmate Shelley Kothe into auditioning for the school play. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I dragged her into this little theater for the audition because I had a crush on her,â&#x20AC;? said McAlpin, who graduated from Rosemount High in 1979. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She got the lead (in the play) and went on to star in every show in high school. She, of course, ends up dating the homecoming king and I end up being her best friend.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I always take credit for her theater career,â&#x20AC;? he added

with a laugh. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I pushed her into it.â&#x20AC;? McAlpin and Kothe are cast this month in Eagan High School Summer Community Theatreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s production of â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Music Man,â&#x20AC;? which runs July 16-31 and is directed by south-metro theater stalwart Denny Swanson. Interestingly, both McAlpin and Kothe performed in the first summer theater show Swanson directed in Dakota County â&#x20AC;&#x201C; â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Wizard of Ozâ&#x20AC;? at Apple Valley High School in 1977. McAlpin played the Scarecrow, while Kothe played an â&#x20AC;&#x153;assistant witch.â&#x20AC;? And it was through Swanson that Kothe found her calling. While McAlpin now works for Apple computers, Kotheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s day job is as a storyteller/presenter with the theater company Schiffelly Puppets based in Lakeville. She traces her interest in puppetry to another show Swanson

All data from the Regional Multiple Listing Service. Reports are created and maintained by 10K Research and Marketing.

New construction inventory is at more healthy level The surge in buyer activity the Twin Cities area saw over the last 12 months brought the inventory of new construction homes down to a much more healthy level than the market has seen in recent years, according to a press release from the St. Paul Area Association of Realtors, which serves Dakota County. In June there were 7.9 months of new construction supply, down from the mark

of 10.5 seen a year ago. With the initial weeks following the tax credit showing large declines in home sales, however, the region can expect that new construction sales are declining as well. The only price range thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seeing its Months Supply of Inventory increase compared to a year ago is above $1 million. The 34.6 months available in that category represents a very high number, relative to historical



performance. Prices are softest in the condominium market, where the Price Per Square Foot has declined by 15.4 percent over the last 12 months from $165 to $139.

Wayne and Stacy Raye Waibel, of Apple Valley, with their dog Rudy.



Apple Valley couple to speak in New Jersey THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

In 2009, facing her third organ transplant surgery, Stacy Raye Waibel, 47, was primarily concerned for her kidney donor, husband Wayne Waibel. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s knocking on deathâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s door and all she can worry about is everybody else,â&#x20AC;? Wayne said, shaking his head. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a year since the Apple Valley coupleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s successful transplant experience, and this week they will speak about it in New Jersey to 2,400 employees of Rouche International. The company, which manufactures transplant medications Stacy takes, has also invited the couple to sell copies of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rudyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Little Worldâ&#x20AC;? childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

book series Stacy authors to help others facing medical issues. Featuring a cartoon dog named Rudy based on the coupleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s real-life black teacup poodle, Stacyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s books explain in simple language the kinds of things children can expect when going for a checkup or undergoing surgery. The tales reflect a portion of the kind of experiences with doctors, hospitals and health complications Stacy has endured. At 19, Stacy lost her vision to juvenile diabetes, and in 1995, she underwent her first kidney transplant; the donor was Wayneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s younger sister, Tammy Waibel. A pancreas transplant in 2003 eliminated Stacyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dia-

betes. Stacy said undergoing so many surgeries and getting used to living without sight has been a challenge, but one she decided early on to accept. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I figured out I have to keep going. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a long life ahead of me,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I can either sit around and mope or I can make the best of it.â&#x20AC;? The couple have already self-published â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rudy Gets a Transplantâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rudyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Checkupâ&#x20AC;? in the Rudy series. The third, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s On My Nose?â&#x20AC;? is due out this fall. For more information on the books, visit rudyslittleworld.com

mayor â&#x20AC;&#x201C; without putting up signs more than three weeks before primaries. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think it does any more good to have signs up four months ahead of time than it does two months ahead of time,â&#x20AC;? he said. Maguire said he plans to communicate with voters through his website and Facebook, as well as participate in fundraising events and parades, rather than post signs at this point. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These are all things we can do as candidates to engage voters without undermining the beauty of the community,â&#x20AC;? he said. A sampling of some of Eaganâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s candidates showed varying opinions on the pledge. Maguireâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s opponent in the mayoral race, Joey Browner, did not return phone calls seeking comment. But John Weiser, who is seeking a seat on the city council, agrees with Maguire and said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be willing to sign the pledge. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I personally donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel that putting signs up super early makes a difference anyway,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People have better things to do with their summer, like spend time with friends and family, than worry about campaigns.

compared with 66.4 percent statewide. In eighth-grade math tests, 52.5 percent of district students met proficiency, compared with 58 percent statewide. In reading, 63.1 percent met proficiency, compared with 68.1 percent statewide. But in senior high, district students were again bettering state proficiency rates â&#x20AC;&#x201C; by 78 percent to 75.3 percent on the 10th-grade reading test and by 44.9 percent to 43.3 percent on the 11th-grade math test, Clegg said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our goal is to try to

people than put up signs.â&#x20AC;? While Council Member Paul Bakken, who is seeking re-election this year, hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t put up any signs yet, he said he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t plan to sign the mayorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pledge. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Only because Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m automatically suspicious of people or pledges who seek to limit free speech,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Particularly free speech occurring on private property.â&#x20AC;? Bakken said he hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t planned on putting signs up until his opponents did. But if a supporter asks him for a sign to display, he will gladly supply it, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I see where heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going with it, but I just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s that much of a problem,â&#x20AC;? he said. The signs posted around town so far have been predominantly for candidates in local legislative races. Ted Daley, a challenger for Senate District 38, said he has put up signs already, but only on private property and with the homeownerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s permission. He said he wanted to talk to Maguire more about the issue before deciding whether to sign the pledge. Daleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s opponent, Sen. Jim Carlson, has not put up any signs himself yet, but a couple of his supporters have. The pledge â&#x20AC;&#x153;is a great idea,â&#x20AC;? he said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but we canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t

prevent people from putting up signs, either our supporters or our opponents.â&#x20AC;? Carlson said he and fellow incumbent Rep. Mike Obermueller (38B) discussed the pledge and, while they chose not to sign it, have decided they will wait a while longer to put up signs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At this point weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve decided itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s too early to put up signs,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know exactly when we will, but it wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be after Labor Day.â&#x20AC;? Labor Day is a little too late, he said. There is no primary for Eaganâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s legislative races, but Carlson believes they are tougher races. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think the contests are a bit different than the mayorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sandra Masin (38A), Mike Obermueller and I, we have, I think, formidable opponents.â&#x20AC;? Obermuellerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s challenger, Doug Wardlow, did not return phone calls. Carlson said he may begin posting signs in late July or early August. But he jokingly disagreed with the mayorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s assessment that his signs would clutter up the community. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think my signs make the city look better,â&#x20AC;? he said.

identify students who are having the most difficult time transitioning from elementary school to a junior high setting and putting in place strategies that will help them be successful and not lose ground,â&#x20AC;? Clegg said. The district needs to better align classroom content with the standards measured on the tests, Clegg said. It also needs to improve consistency of academic content across the districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s three junior highs and improve instructional methods, he said. That work has gone on for years at the elementary level, Clegg said.

MCA-IIs are given annually in grades three through eight. In addition, 10thgraders take a reading test and 11th-graders take a math test. Adequate yearly progress reports will be released in August by the Minnesota Department of Education. Proficiency expectations rise each year, with the goal of 100 percent of U.S. students meeting proficiency by 2014. â&#x20AC;&#x153;While weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re improving our performance, the target is also moving up,â&#x20AC;? Clegg said.

Ex-Spring Lake Park administrator is new human resources director by Elyse Kaner

DISTRICT 191

ABC NEWSPAPERS

Tania Chance, human resources coordinator and director of equity for School District 16, has tendered her resignation. Chance will leave the Spring Lake Park district at the end of the month to take a position in Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School District 191. Chance started July 1 as executive director of human resources. She replaces Sue Grissom, who retired. The district has about 10,000 students, more than twice as many as Spring Lake Parkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 4,600. During her three-year

tenure in District 16, Chance worked to further organizational development and she worked on system change. She led a team of educators who refined and updated a teacher appraisal tool and she led district negotiations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were able to build common understanding and strengthen an already good relationship (among the teachers union and the district) and move forward together,â&#x20AC;? she said of the current two-year teacher contract settled earlier this year. Under her leadership, the

The teacher and students are learning together collaboratively and grabbing all kinds of educational faucets for what they learn, how they learn, what tools they use to learn.

districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s equity initiatives took a giant step forward. She helped lead culturally diverse training for staff, who, in turn, worked with teacher leadership teams in their buildings. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fun to work with and sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s full of energy,â&#x20AC;? District 16 Superintendent Jeff Ronneberg said about Chance. Chance, who describes herself as a self-directed learner, was born and raised in New York City. She graduated from SpringValley Senior High School in the East Ramapo School District, New York.

She attended the University of Wisconsin, Stout, where she earned a bachelorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s degree in technology education and a masterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s degree in education with a focus on curriculum and instruction. She went on to earn principal certification from St. Cloud State University and a doctorate in education from Capella University. She is completing her superintendent licensure at Hamline University in St. Paul. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I always loved learning,â&#x20AC;? Chance said. Chance started out as a high school teacher in Wisconsin and Minnesota. She

in 1996 as a Northfield High School social studies teacher. His wife, Kristin, who also attended St. Olaf, taught English at Northfield High. The couple still live in Northfield with their two children, Sam, 9, and Annie, 5. Lindholm was dean of students and assistant principal at Edina High School from 2000 to 2002, when he was hired as assistant principal of Shakopee Junior High. He served four years as

assistant principal and four as principal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I really was not jumping around looking for any new jobs that opened up,â&#x20AC;? Lindholm said of his new position. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This job opened up and I was very much attracted to the way it was posted and what responsibilities it would include, so I threw my name in.â&#x20AC;? School change isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t all about tech â&#x20AC;&#x201C; there are more basic questions, such as whether learning is best

next joined the White Bear Lake School Districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s administrative team as director of multicultural education. Before coming to Spring Lake Park, she served as a principal in Atlanta, Ga. Originally, she had planned to go into corporate training. But her life took a turn when her tech ed program required that she work with students. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I student taught, I loved it,â&#x20AC;? Chance said. So she regrouped and went the education route.

Teacher role models

her love of learning. She recalls as a sixthgrader when her teacher insisted the students memorize their times tables to the number 13. Other classes were required to learn the tables only through 10, her class complained. But her teacher encouraged them to go a step further. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t you want to be in a class that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll know more and do your best?â&#x20AC;? she would say. Chance says she still thinks about this basic but profound advice today in making everyday decisions.

Change wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t come easy to schools, Lindholm said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I do believe itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to

come with significant conflict, with significant pain, some difficult decisions,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to come with prioritizing what we pay for every step of the way, and doing that with significant vision and strategic planning rather than reactionary decision-making. What Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve learned so far of Burnsville schools is theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re good at some of those things.â&#x20AC;? John Gessner is at burnsville. thisweek@ecm-inc.com.

World Cup fever should infect Minnesota Several area teams will attend the international Schwan’s USA Cup in Blaine by Andy Rogers THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

Every four years when the World Cup is over, people start to ask the question: “Will soccer finally become popular in the USA?” Every four years and the answer remains: “It depends on who you ask.” Few people follow Major League Soccer like they do other professional sports. The local pro team NSC Stars don’t get the attention of even the St. Paul Saints. When the World Cup ends, the average sports fan won’t pay attention to professional soccer for another four years. But looking at the younger set, one will find that soccer is booming. It’s one of, if not the most popular youth sport in Minnesota. Children from 4 to 14 talk, think and play soccer all spring, summer and fall. Minnesota has its own version of a World Cup

Several area programs like Dakota REV, Lakeville, Eagan, Burnsville Fire, and Valley United will compete in various age brackets throughout the week. They will be among almost 1,000 teams from all over the world converging in Blaine. Teams from Thailand and Cayman Islands will have representation for the first time in the USA Cup.

Throwing baseballs for a living George Jensen drafted by Tampa Bay Rays last month

Longtime Apple Valley baseball coach to lead Lakeville South

by Andy Rogers THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

For many young baseball players, becoming a professional is their dream. But for 2008 Eastview graduate and Eagan native George Jensen, he never thought it would become a reality. “I was throwing 87 (miles per hour) in high school, so it really wasn’t in my mind,” he said. “I really had no intention of getting drafted.” He received a baseball scholarship from Des Monies Area Community College where he just completed his second year. During his time at DMACC, the 6-foot-4 right-handed pitcher spent several hours a week in the gym pushing and pulling weights to increase his strength. “I went from 87 to 93 in a year and that really helped my chances,” Jensen said. He was a closer the first year he played and DMACC advanced to the JUCO World Series. Several Major League Baseball scouts started attending DMACC games in 2009 to watch Jensen’s teammate Mitch Mormann, who plays for Louisiana State University and was drafted by San Francisco in the 20th round last year. Jensen caught the eye of several scouts after he relieved Mormann. This year, he took on a starting role. Jensen was drafted in the 46th round by the Tampa Bay Rays on June 9 after compiling a 5-1 record last season with a 3.77 ERA with 30 strike outs in 57.1 innings. He signed a contract with the team June 22 and traveled to Princeton, W. Va., to play in the Rookie Appalachian League. He stays at a nearby Comfort Inn with other teammates. He’s at the field by 1 p.m. for practice and games usually begin at 7 p.m. Jensen has pitched two successful relief outings. He’s thrown 6.1 innings, giving up no runs off six hits and four strikeouts. Although he’s been playing a relief role for the Rays, Jensen prefers starting. “You have more time to work through things,” Jensen said. “As a starter you’re more relaxed. You have

George Jensen throws a ball during the 2008 season for Eastview. He was drafted by the Tampa Bay Rays last month. more time to make adjustments.” He said the game moves quicker and the hitters are much better at the rookie league level, but it equals out with the use of wooden bats. “It’s harder for them to get around and make solid contact,” Jensen said. He plans on riding his pitching arm as far as it will take him. “I’d like to move up a level every year and a half or so,” he said. The rookie league is one step below Class A. His road to the Rays started at Eastview, where pitching wasn’t his first position. “I was 15 years old when I realized I wanted to be a pitcher,” Jensen said. He soon developed a slider and has been adding velocity to his fastball ever since.

His fondest memory was in 2008 when the team started 9-0. “It was great, even though we didn’t finish the way we wanted to,” he said. He gives a lot of credit to Eastview’s pitching coach at the time Jim Egan, who helped Jensen raise his velocity. He said head coach Tom Strey made the team “wonderful.” DMACC also featured area baseball players like Lakeville’s Dylan Thomas; Apple Valley’s Jordan Buck and Nick Elioff; Burnsville’s Cody Aasen and John Loeffler; and Rosemount’s Mark Radmacher in the lineup last spring.

Volleyball becomes a family matter Area players on Northern Lights club team finish second at nationals by Andy Rogers THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

Iversen going South

“I definitely knew we could play better than that,” teammate Katie Habeck of Farmington said. Northern Lights lost its first two games, but the girls turned their play around to win the next four games and qualify for the final against the Michigan Elites. “I think we all worked really well together,” Habeck said. Voss and Habeck were named to the all-tournament team along with teammate Lisa Atkinson from Northfield. “I was really surprised,” Voss said. “That was a really big honor.” The 15-1 team also finished second at Nationals.

Sports sometimes start as a family activity and other times they evolve into one. Apple Valley’s Taylor Voss has both going for her on the volleyball court. She helped the Northern Lights 17-1, an all-star volleyball club team, place second at the Volleyball Girls’ Junior National Championships in Reno, Nev., on July 1. At the beginning of the tournament, Northern Lights 17-1 didn’t look like a team capable of finishing second. “We were just playing bad,” Voss said.

When Mark Zeise announced he was stepping down as coach of the Lakeville South baseball team, Apple Valley’s head coach Al Iversen was a likely candidate to succeed him. He lives and teaches in Lakeville, where his two sons are in second and fourth grade. He is also a former assistant for the high school and American Legion teams. “A lot of coaches speculated I would go,” Iversen said. “I said I had I job at Apple Valley. (I told them) until the season is over, I don’t want it brought to my attention anymore.” The season is over and the attention was deserved. Iversen has resigned as head baseball coach at Apple Valley to become the varsity baseball coach at Lakeville South. He said the decision came down to what was best for his family. Although his sons are too young for varsity ball, the opportunity to coach them in the future, rather than coach against them, made the decision easier. “I’ve had the opportunity to watch the coaches up here (coach their sons),” Iversen said. “The opportunity is just too great to pass up.” He would rather be the one to coach his sons in baseball and hug them after a win. Iversen coached at Lakeville before as an assistant with the varsity team from 1992-2000. He was also the coach of the American Legion team. After Lakeville finished as runner-up at state in 2000, Iversen took over at Apple Valley. Iversen led the Eagles since 2001 with a 148-96 (.607) record. His team captured the state title in 2006 and won the Lake Conference titles in 2002, 2004, and 2007. He couldn’t single out his favorite memory as the head coach. “All journeys have their own destination,” Iversen said. “Even the years when we weren’t on top of the conference there were some great memories.” Lakeville South has struggled since the school opened in 2005 with a 26-84 (.309) overall record, including an 0-21 season in 2007. The Cougars just finished their most successful campaign this spring with a 1012 record. “I won’t guarantee anything, but I’ll put my best effort forward,” Iversen said. Iversen didn’t foresee any major changes, but he would like to get more involved in the summer programs such as the traveling, in-house, Babe Ruth and American Legion teams.
