Classical piano lessons didn’t make 11-year-old Drew Steven’s heart stir. He was dutiful but distracted, by a gnawing curiosity about what was behind the music. A few years later, an instructor and mentor introduced Steven to music theory. His interest soared, he turned his bedroom into a recording studio and he even surrendered his hoop dreams. “I have a basketball hoop outside that’s really nice,� said the 6-foot-4 Steven, 18, who lives with his parents near Buck Hill in Burnsville. “I begged for that forever. Then when I got it, I gave up basketball for music.� Now with about 10 compositions in his portfolio, Steven debuted an original piano sonata to an audience of about 200 on July 22 at North Central University in Minneapolis. He’s finished his first year at the Christian school, pursuing a degree in piano performance

When they woke up with headaches at 6:30 a.m. and their two young daughters began vomiting, the Welfingers knew something was terribly wrong. The family immediately evacuated their house and called 911. Eagan firefighter Dave DiIoia responded to the call and recorded carbon monoxide levels of 1,500 parts per million near the garage of the home. The typical concentration inside a home is between 0.03 and 2.5 parts per million, according to the Minnesota Department of Health. DiIoia opened the garage door and discovered a car had accidentally been left running since the previous evening, filling the home with carbon monoxide. “It was a really quiet car. You couldn’t hear it running,� he said. The home did not have a CO detector, said Fire Chief Mike Scott. Prolonged exposure to carbon monoxide can cause permanent brain damage and death, he said.

“They are very fortunate to be alive,� he said. They aren’t the only lucky ones. The Welfingers live in a four-plex with three other families, none of whom were affected by the gas. The Welfingers were taken by ambulance to the hospital where they were treated and released that same day. But their experience is a good lesson for others about the importance of CO detectors, Scott said. A state law passed in 2007 requires all new construction to include CO detectors. As of 2009, all homes in Minnesota – including apartments – are required to have them within 10 feet of each bedroom. Detectors are particularly important because CO has no odor, color or taste and cannot be detected by the senses. According to the Minnesota Department of Health, CO is a gas that can build up to dangerous concentrations indoors when fuelSee CO, 19A

Agency says ‘BRAVO’ to eateries that donate to local food shelves Willenburg and family launch restaurant program by John Gessner THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

When he was a restaurant manager, Jerry Willenburg stopped counting partially used cases of foodstuffs in his inventory reports. For accounting purposes, they were table scraps that didn’t budge the bottom line, Willenburg said. But recently, the longtime Burnsville resident had a thought: What if a bunch of restaurants in town regularly donated just a smidgen of their inventory to the local food shelf ? “That starts to make a serious difference,� Willenburg said. In March, Willenburg and his family launched the

BURNSVILLE Burnsville Restaurant Alliance Volunteer Organization. The last Thursday of every month, the Willenburgs – including Jerry’s wife, Joanna, and their children, 15-year-old Amber and 18-year-old Nicole – pick up restaurant donations for delivery to the 360 Communities food shelf program. So far, five Burnsville restaurants have responded to Willenburg’s appeal for monthly donations of $100 worth of food. “It’s a marathon, not a sprint,� Willenburg said, adding that he hopes to expand the program to other

cities south of the river. Of course, 360 Communities welcomes the donations – especially since the Dakota County nonprofit agency has begun seeking more community collaboration in tackling problems such as hunger. “It really is the village that needs to own the village,� said Steve Haschig, senior director of development for 360 Communities, who personally welcomed BRAVO into the fold. Summer is always a high-demand time for food shelves, with children out of school, Haschig said.

Board gets serious about cutting programs, staff by Laura Adelmann THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

Anticipating dramatic and permanent state aid cuts, rising insurance premiums and economic uncertainties, Dakota County officials are planning for years of financial struggles. During a July 27 budget workshop, County Finance Director Matt Smith estimated the current $368 million county budget will drop to $313 million by 2013, a $55 million reduction. Smith said without insurance plan modifications, the county will pay another $1.8 million for employee health insurance next year, and another $300,000 in retirement benefits. Next year, Smith is recom-

DAKOTA COUNTY mending the county plan to cut its budget by $10 million. In 2012, the county is planning for the possibility of losing another $19 million, and cuts of $26 million in 2013. The figures are broad estimates, and could change because there are still many unknowns, including the severity of the expected state aid cuts. In response to the anticipated budget challenges, Smith proposed earmarking a portion of the county’s fund balance to pay off bond debt over the next few years, freeing up tax levy dollars to be reallocated to cover operational costs.

In addition, the county may cut employees and programs, delay or eliminate planned improvements and purchases, raise property taxes 1 percent next year and 2 percent in both 2012 and 2013, in hopes that the actions are enough to carry through until the economy picks up by 2014 and beyond. While commissioners and department heads have prioritized county services, with law and justice topping the list, and encouraging the public in civic affairs at the bottom, few rendered comments about which areas to cut, knowing those issues will be discussed more in depth next month.

From one Junior’s to another Owner of Junior’s Cafe and Grill in Eagan coming to Burnsville with American staples and full bar by John Gessner THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

James Reyes Jr. doesn’t fret about the recent fortunes of his new restaurant space in Burnsville, where two eateries have gone out of business. He thinks he’s got a winner, and there’s reason to believe him. Reyes owns Junior’s Cafe and Grill in the Duckwood Square strip center on Duckwood Drive in Eagan. He’s bringing his all-American diner concept to the Towne and Country shopping center in northeast Burnsville, where Junior’s Sports Cafe is expected to open in late August. Junior’s will take over the space at 1996 E. Highway 13 previously occupied by the AppleWood Rustic Grille and Event Center, which closed last October. Before that it was a hot dogand-pizza place called Papa T’s. “There were a couple things in this place that didn’t make it either, and we’ve been here for seven years,� Reyes said in an interview at his Eagan restaurant. “Making good food and treating your customers well, that’s what makes you survive.� The Eagan restaurant’s decor and agreeably smoky cooking smells pretty much announce what’s on the menu. Cooks work over an open griddle behind a counter lined with stools. The walls are covered with images of 20th-century Americana, and the table coverings are checkered red and white. The place is known for its breakfasts, fresh-cut burgers and other starsand-stripes staples. “American food,� said Reyes, 31, of Apple Valley. “Blue-plate specials. Meat loaf. Brisket. Country-fried

Reyes has no immediate plans for live music, which AppleWood Rustic Grille tried. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to see what the business brings us,â&#x20AC;? Reyes said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Right now thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a stage there. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to leave it there. Maybe weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll get ideas from the customers.â&#x20AC;? While Reyes is courting a nighttime crowd, he knows his most faithful customers may be those who rise with the sun. In Marchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Minnesota Monthly magazine, WCCOTV reporter Jason DeRusha ranked Juniorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cafe and Grill seventh on his top-10 list of Twin Cities breakfast spots. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re still going to open at 7 a.m.,â&#x20AC;?

cess that information while keeping in mind the primary mission of the school district, which is to â&#x20AC;&#x153;serve the needs of children.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think an effective board member is one who spends time reading and staying abreast of changes in education,â&#x20AC;? Clegg said. Keeping current on national, regional and local issues will be important in the coming years as the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s financial situation deteriorates. This will dominate much of school board business for several years, said Currier and Clegg in separate conversations with Thisweek. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These are clearly uncertain economic times,â&#x20AC;? Currier said. The stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s budget deficit for the 2012-13 biennium is $6 billion (or nearly one-fifth of the total state budget), according to state economist Tom Stinson. With at least 40 percent of the state budget set aside for education, school administrators have expressed expectations of cuts in state funding of local school districts. District 191 is doing better than some other districts when it comes to its fiscal picture. It will not need to make any cuts to staff or programs this year (2010-11 school year). A combination of foresight, the successful 2007 operating levy referendum and a healthy fund balance provided much of the foundation for this, according to district officials.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wise decision-making and planning by previous boards made it possible for us to be in the position we are right now,â&#x20AC;? Currier said. Ultimately, it is up to current and prospective school board members to maintain that sort of longview, officials say. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A significant challenge will be how to continue to increase student achievement and educational opportunities for students with stagnant or declining (financial) resources,â&#x20AC;? Clegg said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Part of that role is how you engage the community in a conversation about priorities for spending and building a consensus about goals and priorities for the school system.â&#x20AC;? Under that financial purview, Clegg predicts, â&#x20AC;&#x153;there will be a conversation of what does public education look like in the 21st century.â&#x20AC;? Districts will look at balancing online options with the need for physical buildings while demographics change and pedagogical discussions abound, he said.

Dakota County Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s aging initiative likely to reorganize into a non-profit agency Living Longer and Stronger out of money at yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s end by Laura Adelmann THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

A Dakota County initiative administered by a local non-profit organization is likely to become its own non-profit next year. What began as the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s investigation of how to accommodate an aging public became an action plan through DARTS. The county funded the program with about $110,000 annually for three years, but it is not being funded in 2011, said Jack Ditmore, director of operations, management and budget. At a July 27 committee

meeting, DARTS vice president Beth Wiggins said the aging initiative, now called Living Longer and Stronger, has formed a sustainability committee to explore ways to continue its work without county support. She said about 70 volunteers have given over 1,000 hours of time this year, providing support to residents in a variety of ways. For example, in Burnsville, the organizationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Health and Wellness Team surveyed residents age 45 and older about how senior centers can adapt to meet changing needs and demographics.

The group plans to next focus on Apple Valley and Rosemount. Other areas of involvement have included housing, services, wellness, transportation, work and community. Wiggins said the organization has no money now, and funding the new nonprofit would be a challenge. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There may be other partners interested in the community development side of this as opposed to the aging side,â&#x20AC;? she said. Laura Adelmann is at laura. adelmann@ecm-inc.com.

Volunteers needed to support families caring for an elder Family members caring for an elder in their home could use a break from caregiving now and then, and being a DARTS volunteer can make it possible. Volunteers can support family caregivers by giving them a break once a week or every other week for three to four hours. Volunteers provide company and a safe environment for the elder who cannot be left alone. For more information about DARTS volunteer opportunities with older adults, contact Barb Tiggemann, barb.tiggemann@ darts1.org or (651) 4551560, or visit www.darts1. org.

Clark joined the Dakota County Attorneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office in 1989 as a criminal prosecutor, handling major crimes including murder, criminal sexual conduct, felony assault and robbery. He graduated from William Mitchell College of Law in St. Paul and was in private practice in Wisconsin for five years before moving to Minnesota. The First Judicial District includes the counties of Carver, Dakota, Goodhue, LeSueur, McLeod, Scott and Sibley. Primary voters are asked to select one candidate in the judicial race. The top two vote-getters will proceed to the general election, Nov. 2.

THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

A Dakota County judge disciplined last year for misconduct is facing two challengers in the Aug. 10 primary election. In the rare contested judicial race, attorneys Larry Clark and Stephen Allan Baker have filed to run against Judge Timothy Blakely, a former Navy officer who has held the First Judicial District seat for 11 years. Last year, Blakely was suspended from practice for six months by the Minnesota Supreme Court for negotiating a $63,503 discount for legal services in his divorce by appointing his attorney as mediator to cases he oversaw. Both Clark, an assistant prosecuting attorney for Dakota County, and Baker, an attorney from Red Wing who has practiced in Minnesota and Florida, have cited references to Blakelyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s discipline as one of the reasons they decided to run for the bench. In an e-mail, Baker said his candidacy speaks for his views on Blakely and the courtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sanction. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need to bring honesty, integrity and the spirit of community service back to the bench in the First Judicial District,â&#x20AC;? he wrote. On his website, Clark states that he never envisioned himself running against a sitting judge, but now feels compelled to do so, â&#x20AC;&#x153;in an effort to restore integrity and respect to the position. As a judge, I promise to not let my personal interests interfere with my decisions.â&#x20AC;?

cent, was 1.9 percent lower than 2009. This small decrease is still well above the state average of 46 percent for this age group. Superintendent Jane Berenz was mostly pleased with the results. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The teachers and kids did a great job,â&#x20AC;? she said. The district is preparing to review its science curriculum this year, Berenz said, and the results â&#x20AC;&#x153;give us fresh data to look atâ&#x20AC;? in relation to that review. The Minnesota Comprehensive Assessments-Series II (MCA-II) are given statewide in the spring. The test topics vary depending on grade level. The reading and math scores are used to determine if a school district is making Adequate Yearly Progress per federal law. The U.S. Department of Education does not use science scores in this determination. Berenz said science is a focus of districts across the state: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everyone wants to see science scores go up.â&#x20AC;?

District 196 students in eighth grade and at the high school level improved their test scores on standardized science tests this past school year, according to data released by the Minnesota Department of Education on July 27. Overall, middle school students made the greatest gains, even if the gap between their achievement and the state average is not as wide as that of the high school. Students in eighth grade had the largest increase, achieving 49.3 percent proficiency in 2010 compared 41.2 percent in 2009. The state average for eighthgraders in 2010 was 46 percent. High school students scored 66.9 percent proficiency, a 3.4 percent increase over 2009. The state average for this group was 47.9 percent. Fifth-graders were the other group to take the MCA-II science test and the only ones to see a decrease. Aaron Vehling is at aaron. Their 2010 score, 53.4 per- vehling@ecm-inc.com.

Opinion Thisweek Columnist DealzOn: a new way to connect readers, advertisers thedealz n.com by Larry Werner THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

The newspaper is a funny animal. Are its customers the readers whom we inform about the happenings in our communities? Or are our customers the merchants who buy the ads that pay the bills? The answer is, yes. During my 40 years in this business, I have often referred to the paper as a “two-headed monster” dedicated to serving two masters – readers and advertisers. Our job is to provide objective information in the news columns while selling space in the ad columns so merchants can deliver their own commercial messages. Next week, we’ll be launching a new feature that is different from anything we’ve ever done. It will offer our advertising customers a chance to provide our readers with exceptional bargains through coupons sold on our website, www. thisweeklive.com. It’s called DealzOn, which stands for “The Deal is On.” Once you hear how it works, you’ll realize the idea isn’t original. Others have been selling coupons

off websites for some time. Going by names such as Groupon and Living Social, companies have provided bargain hunters with the chance to buy “group coupons” if a minimum number of other folks buy in a limited period of time, usually 24 hours. Through thedealzon.com, which works off our ThisweekLive. com website, we will give consumers the same opportunity to spread the word that good deals will be on if enough people buy. In a recent staff meeting, one of our sales agents asked what DealzOn has to do with putting out a newspaper. It isn’t news, and it isn’t advertising, at least in the traditional sense. My response to the sales agent’s question is that DealzOn is about serving the local businesses that support our free newspapers and website with advertising and the readers who, we hope, patronize those advertisers. A better question than why should we offer group coupons is why not? We’ve been bringing local businesses and their customers together for more than 125

your local

years in the Dakota County Tribune and more than 30 years in Thisweek. The Tribune was started as a subscription newspaper in 1884 and is now published as our Business Weekly on Thursdays. About 65,000 copies of our three Thisweek papers are distributed on Fridays in Dakota County. Our website includes virtually all the stories that appear in our newspapers. And speaking of websites, they have changed a lot of things in the news business. Many of the financial challenges we’ve faced are related to advertising moving from printed newspapers to the Internet, where ads are inexpensive because of the large number of competitors out there. Among the competitors are the group-coupon sites that have become popular with bargain-hunting consumers. Mike Jetchick, our sales manager, noticed that group coupons

daily savings site

were being sold every day on behalf of companies that have included some of our longtime local business clients. He persuaded me that we should start selling these coupons. Next week, you will be able to check ThisweekLive.com for our daily deal and buy coupons providing discounts of 50 percent and more at local businesses once a minimum number of people buy along with you. The revenue will be split between us and the participating businesses. Once you buy the coupon on our site, you’ll get a link that will allow you to print out a voucher for the deal. We have spent several months fine-tuning the details of our new program with a DealzOn team consisting of Mike, business manager Eva Mooney, our web designer, Dawn Igoe, graphic artist Robyn Berg and Gina Lee, one of our sales agents. They are ready

for our business customers to start offering “dealz” and for our readers to sign up for e-mail notices at www.thedealzon.com. I must admit that when I got into this business 40 years ago, I never imagined that I’d be selling coupons on the Internet as part of my newspaper job. For that matter, I never imagined there would be something called the Internet or a website or e-mail or social networking. Our business has been changed rapidly by amazing technologies, and it will continue to change. But what hasn’t changed is the role we play serving those two masters – readers who rely on us to tell them what’s happening in their communities and the advertisers who want to reach those readers, their customers. Beginning Aug. 3, we will be serving those two masters in a new way we call DealzOn. We’d like all of you to sign up. Larry Werner is editor and general manager of Thisweek Newspapers and the Dakota County Tribune. He is at larry.werner@ecm-inc. com.

ECM Editorial Anderson Kelliher merits nod in deep DFL primary Gov. Tim Pawlenty’s eight years in office have given voters ample time to compare his no-new-taxes version of government with the more progressive model that had prevailed for decades. November’s gubernatorial election again presents clashing philosophies. On the Democrat-Farmer-Labor side, Margaret Anderson Kelliher is the best candidate to make her party’s case in a robust contest with Republican endorsee Tom Emmer and Independence Party endorsee Tom Horner. Anderson Kelliher, a 12-year veteran of the state House of Representatives, was elected speaker in 2007. She faces former U.S. Sen. Mark Dayton, also a former state auditor, and former House Minority Leader Matt Entenza in an Aug. 10 primary. The new governor’s first job will be mending an unprecedented $5.8 billion hole in the state budget. Anderson Kelliher and Entenza propose similar approaches that include spending cuts, tax hikes and continued delays in aid payments to school districts. Both propose higher income taxes for households making more than $250,000 a year. They’re right to use the income tax to reverse regressivity that has crept into Minnesota’s state and local tax structure during the Pawlenty years. Dayton’s approach – raising more revenue than either of his DFL opponents by hiking income taxes on a broader swath of “high-income” earners – may have gut-level appeal for some DFL primary voters. It’s too divisive to carry into a general election and the 2011 legislative session. Anderson Kelliher’s choice of John Gunyou as her lieutenant governor running mate inspires confidence in her intellectual

and political flexibility. Gunyou is a former state finance commissioner under Republican Gov. Arne Carlson and the current Minnetonka city manager. He’s an authority on state finance and a well-known scold on “solutions” that trade long-term stability for expediency. The Anderson Kelliher/Gunyou team offers the best chance for an evolving model of state finance that will become more fair and less vulnerable to unsettling revenue swings. Anderson Kelliher was the chief architect of a gasoline-tax increase that will raise more than $6 billion for badly needed road and bridge projects. She held together a coalition, including several Republicans, that delivered the only veto override Pawlenty has suffered in office. She represents a new generation of DFL leadership, one less prone to inter-caucus “bullying and yelling,” in her words, and more willing to try velvet persuasion. The daughter of rural Minnesota dairy farmers, Anderson Kelliher is visionary in many respects – such as her call for a government official to oversee services for a growing population of elderly – but some of her ideas need work. In an interview with the ECM Editorial Board, she gave an incomplete response to a question about Minnesota’s growing public-pension crisis. In order to win DFL endorsement, she committed to exploring a state universal health-care system. The goal may be laudable, but too little has been said about how it would meld with the federal program and whether the cost is sustainable, especially in these times. Anderson Kelliher also supports a large, dedicated increase in state school funding

combined with cuts in property taxes. To her credit, she says Minnesota must conquer its budget crisis first. She opposes gambling expansion and state tax dollars being spent on a new Vikings stadium, would sign a same-sex marriage bill and rightly identifies Minnesota’s eroding water quality as its biggest environmental problem. Minnesota is fortunate to have three strong candidates in the DFL primary. Dayton’s lifetime of public service includes serving as a state commissioner for three different departments. During his career,

Entenza was an effective legislator and leader of the House DFL caucus who now brings a fresh centrist profile to the primary race. Anderson Kelliher faces two wealthy Goliaths who have invested small fortunes in the Aug. 10 primary. Their campaign war chests neither qualify nor disqualify any of the three candidates.

We have the right person representing us To the editor: As a resident of Apple Valley, I’m pleased to know the Minnesota Police and Peace Officers Association has endorsed Rep. Phil Sterner in his candidacy for office in the District 37B Minnesota House of Representatives. This endorsement is given without reservation to those individuals the association feels are the best candidates to deal with crime and public safety issues in the Legislature. The association has been in existence since 1922 and has a membership of more than 8,500 line police officers across the state of Minnesota. Their support of Phil Sterner’s re-election to the state House of Representatives is just one more assurance for me that we have the right person representing us at the Capitol. ALAN C.

What people might not see as they drive by are the volunteers who make those activities happen. For every game that takes place there are a number of men and women who organize these activities. One of the most important groups includes those who volunteer their time to coach. One of the most difficult tasks for league organizers like Scott Selby, EVAA president, is finding enough coaches for the 12 sports it coordinates. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We really rely on volunteers,â&#x20AC;? Selby said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are plenty of people with experience. The hardest part is finding enough people with the time to devote to it.â&#x20AC;? There are many reasons why coaches decide to get involved. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think I did it because of the love of the game,â&#x20AC;? said Selby, who has coached in the past. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For most people it is wanting to stay connected to the game. A lot of our people are interested in developing an interest in an active lifestyle. They are not particularly interested in having their child become the star of the high school team.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I enjoy it because I get to see my son develop and kind of help him along,â&#x20AC;? said Louisville Bat 5- to 6-year-olds baseball coach Eddie Krekeler. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I like teaching the kids skills and the basics of the game. I like to see their expressions when they make good plays or get a hit.â&#x20AC;? Coaches are unpaid and, depending on the level and sport, devote a great amount of time from their daily lives to coach. What the coaches donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t receive in monetary compensation they get back in ways that canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be measured by dollars and cents. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is very rewarding,â&#x20AC;? said Krekeler, â&#x20AC;&#x153;with the kids that donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hit the ball all the time, when they do actually hit it, the look on their face â&#x20AC;&#x201C; â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Oh my gosh, I actually hit itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x201C; is pretty cool.â&#x20AC;? The amount of expe-

IN BRIEF If you are interested in contacting or finding out more about area athletic associations, go online at: â&#x20AC;˘ Dakota Rev Soccer Club, www.dakotarev. org â&#x20AC;˘ Eastview Athletic Association, www.eastview-evaa.org â&#x20AC;˘ Rosemount Area Athletic Association, www.rosemount-aaa. org â&#x20AC;˘ Rosemount Area Hockey Association, www.rosemounthockey. org â&#x20AC;˘ Valley Athletic Association, www.valleyathletic.org rience a coach needs is a common roadblock for would-be coaches. In reality, especially at the younger levels, the less experienced coaches are often the most beneficial to the players. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have found,â&#x20AC;? Selby said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;for our coaches, empathy is important. You have got to be able to understand this is not easy to learn. That is where the superstar athlete is not always a good coach because everything comes naturally to them. It actually helps to have some people who struggled a bit when they were in sports, because they understand from point zero to point 10 instead of somebody who just picked up a ball and threw it 60 yards. You have to have somebody who can empathize with the struggle of learning something new.â&#x20AC;? In todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s world, people are always on the go and have tight schedules, but getting involved in coaching a youth sport isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always as time consuming as it might seem. EVAA has a board of volunteers for each sport that makes schedules, secures the fields and completes much of the paperwork. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They have a coaches

meeting at the beginning of the year to go over the basic rules and hand out the equipment,â&#x20AC;? Krekeler said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is pretty much all set up for us and we just have to manage our own team.â&#x20AC;? Coaches of traveling teams might need to put in more time, but for someone who wants to be involved on a smaller scale, there is plenty of room for those with limited time. More and more it seems like there are stories about angry parents who disrupt the game or get too involved with the officials or coaches. Although it sometimes happens, EVAA has few incidents and supports the coaches and officials quickly and effectively, according to the association. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of our volunteers say that is what they worry about the most,â&#x20AC;? Selby said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t had the kind of things you see in the paper. We have been successful getting the message out that that kind of behavior isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t going to be accepted and when it does happen we respond very quickly. If you, as a coach or referee, let us know about it, we will support you and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll stomp it out as fast as we can.â&#x20AC;? In a perfect world, that support is never needed and groups like EVAA can focus on more important things â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the players. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is fun to see the kidsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; progress. With the Louisville Bats I can see how as the season progresses they are getting better,â&#x20AC;? Krekeler said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That is very rewarding. We try to teach them some fundamentals and sharpen their skills, but it is more about having fun.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to be able to not only teach kids sports,â&#x20AC;? Selby said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but also to teach kids about handling adversity. How do I handle adversity with others?â&#x20AC;? When it comes down to it, helping young people improve not only in athletics, but more importantly as people, is what coaching youth athletics is all about.

Thisweekend Expressions! offers divine comedy Lakeville theater group presents â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Education of Angelsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; by Andrew Miller THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

Laugh-out-loud comedy has become the stock in trade of Lakeville-based community theater group Expressions! The groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s latest production, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Education of Angels,â&#x20AC;? promises plenty of laughs, but also delves into deeper issues, says director Maureen Carroll. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about life and death and new beginnings,â&#x20AC;? Carroll said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s funny, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s poignant, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a tearjerker but in a very sweet way.â&#x20AC;? The show, which runs Aug. 6-15 at the Lakeville Area Arts Center, follows the misadventures of two angels in training (played by Bonnie Stevenson and Paul Modderman) sent to Earth to assist a bridegroom (Andrew Wilkins) experiencing cold feet on his wedding day.

Making their debut The production marks the stage debut for three actors in the showâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ninemember cast. Toby Nichols, who works as a substitute teacher in Lakeville Area Public

Schools, is cast as the elderly, cane-clutching Clifton in his first acting role. Rob Carry, a horticulturist by trade who this summer is producing a reality TV series tentatively titled â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Stationâ&#x20AC;? about the lives of firefighters in Naples, Fla., is cast as Jack, the best man at the wedding in â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Education of Angels.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exhilarating and terrifying all at the same time,â&#x20AC;? Carry, of Inver Grove Heights, said of his first theater role. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something to cross off my bucket list.â&#x20AC;? Also new to the stage is 7-year-old Ariana Doyle, the sole child in the cast. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always wanted to act and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been really fun,â&#x20AC;? said Doyle, who will be a second-grader at Falcon Ridge Elementary in New Prague in the fall. Carroll and the other cast members describe Doyle as a natural talent. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s doing a phenomenal job â&#x20AC;&#x201C; sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very professional, and it feels like sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always been on the stage,â&#x20AC;? said Carroll. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d take her again in a heartbeat.â&#x20AC;?

Eagan

Burnsville

Celebrate National Night Out for chance to win Twins suite

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Annie Jr.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; at the PAC

Neighborhoods across Eagan will celebrate National Night Out from 5:30 to 9:30 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 3. In honor of Eaganâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 150th anniversary, neighborhoods that bring food or cash donations for the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s food drive will also have the chance to win a Twins suite for 24 people for the Oct. 2 game. Registered neighborhoods will get one raffle entry for every 50 pounds do-

nated. Every dollar donated equals 3.5 pounds of food. Neighborhoods can register their parties through the end of the day Monday, Aug. 2. The cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s goal this year is to raise a total of 300,000 pounds of food for area food shelves. Currently donations are at about 240,000 pounds of food. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The more food or money you donate, the more chances you get to win,â&#x20AC;? said Scott Swenson, chair

of the Eagan Sesquicentennial Volunteer Committee. This could be a record year in Eagan for participation in National Night Out, said Police Chief Jim McDonald. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We started in 1999 with only 29 neighborhood parties and this year we expect to have 185 parties,â&#x20AC;? he said. Co-sponsored by the Eagan Citizens Crime Prevention Association, National Night Out is one of the best ways to get to know

your neighbors and increase a sense of community, according to police. The event encourages residents to lock their doors, turn on their outside lights, and spend the evening with their neighbors, sending a message to criminals that Eagan neighborhoods are organized and working to deter crime. For more information, call Jill Ondrey, Eagan crime prevention specialist, at (651) 675- 5727.

Business loans available Rasmussen College to host Career for veterans, small businesses and Networking Fair is Aug. 19 An expanded and renamed state program is offering loans of up to $20,000 apiece to recently retired military service members who want to start businesses, and also to small businesses that suffered due to the loss of essential employees being called to military service, under a law passed in the 2010 legislative session. The Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development is administrating the program, called the Minnesota Reservist and Veteran Business Loan Program. Both the business and start-up business loans are one-time, interest-free loans, available from $5,000 to $20,000. Terms are for four and a half years, with no repayment over the first one and a half years and equal monthly payments for the remaining three years. Start-up business loans are available to businesses that are owned and operated by a recently separated veteran (after Sept. 11, 2001). To qualify for this program, a veteran must

have been on active duty on or after 9/11 and have been separated under honorable conditions after having been on active duty for at least 181 consecutive days, or after disability incurred while on active duty. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Small business is the backbone of Minnesota,â&#x20AC;? said Sen. Pat Pariseau, who is retiring at the end of 2010. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These loan programs were developed for our hard-working veterans that continue to serve our state by priming the economic pump of small business that fuels our stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economy. I encourage all veterans that may be eligible and interested to check into the programs they may want to take advantage of.â&#x20AC;? Applications are available at www.positivelyminnesota.com under â&#x20AC;&#x153;reservist and veteran business loan.â&#x20AC;? The direct link to the information page is at: www. tinyurl.com/veteransloanprogram. Questions about the program can be directed to Jeff Nelson at (651) 259-7523 or jeff.m.nelson@state.mn.us.

Rasmussen College, 3500 Federal Drive in Eagan, will host from 3- 5 p.m. Aug. 19 a free Career and Networking Fair for residents of the surrounding communities. Companies from a variety of industries will be present and looking to fill positions with qualified candidates. Featured businesses include UPS, Aerotek, Wells Fargo, and ACR Homes.

Building to be sold, but Ben Franklin not going anywhere Lakevilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;five and dimeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; store, family owned for more than 30 years, offers something for everyone by Derrick Williams THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

Ben Franklin is just one of the many family-owned businesses that give downtown Lakeville its smalltown feel. Half variety store, half â&#x20AC;&#x153;five and dime,â&#x20AC;? Ben Franklin, located at 20765 Holyoke Ave., has offered a gamut of services in the 30 years Scott Erickson has owned it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We get people all the time that stop and say, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Look, a Ben Franklin. I havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seen one of those in a long time,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;? Erickson, 52, said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going well. We just look for things that people canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t find other places.â&#x20AC;? And despite the fact that the Ben Franklin building is on the verge of being sold, Erickson said nothing will be changing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re still here and Ben Franklin isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t going anywhere,â&#x20AC;? Erickson said. And thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great news for Judy Tschumper. Tschumper, director of the Downtown Lakeville Business Association, said itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great to know Erickson plans to be around a long time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not only a very unique store, but part of it is the historical part of being downtown. The Ericksons, like the Enggrens, have been an integral part of Lakeville for so long,â&#x20AC;? Tschumper said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Families like that make downtown what it is.â&#x20AC;? The Enggren family is selling the Ben Franklin building to Lakeville-based Metro Equity Management. Tschumper said itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy to see why Ben Franklin seems to thrive in downtown Lakeville. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you walk in there you can see â&#x20AC;&#x201C; they have something for everyone,â&#x20AC;? she

central Ben Franklin warehouse like days past, Erickson said he now deals with â&#x20AC;&#x153;oodles of vendors.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a little more difficult, but now I can get more specialized items,â&#x20AC;? he said. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also complemented merchandise sales with specialized services, such as custom picture framing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really strong,â&#x20AC;? Erickson said. He said Lakevilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s growth from small town into a commuter community has changed business. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of people donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re even here,â&#x20AC;? Erickson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But we are, and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not leaving.â&#x20AC;?

said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;From kids who need Lakeville North and Lakeville South items, to seniors, to scrap-bookers, to the custom framing â&#x20AC;Ś you just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see anything so eclectic anymore. There is literally something for everyone.â&#x20AC;? Erickson said thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the point. But he also said owning the store has a unique set of challenges. Ben Franklin was once a dynamic franchise of retail stores, Erickson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But the franchise was sold.

Credit union soars from small beginnings to great success Wings Financial Credit Union, the largest credit union in the state, continues to grow with recent merger by Jessica Harper DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Photo by Jessica Harper

Wings Financial Credit Union recently announced it is merging with City-County Federal Credit Union. This is Wings Financialâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second merger this month. It also reached an agreement to merge with Highgrove Community Federal Credit Union. In both deals, the credit unions will be operated by Wings under the Wings name.

APPLE VALLEY nancialâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s conservative lending practices and its ability to maintain loyal customers. Wings Financial recently announced it is merging with City-County Federal Credit Union based in Minneapolis. The merger received approval from both boards, and preliminary approval from both the National Credit Union Administration and the Minnesota Department of Commerce. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have been talking for some time and felt the timing was right to move forward,â&#x20AC;? Wagner said. He added that the merger will likely not be complete until the end of March. The merger will increase Wingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s membership 50 percent to 190,000 members and its assets 17.5 percent to $3.16 billion. Airlines will make up only 50 percent of Wings membership, Wagner said. The primary difference

between the two credit unions is that City-County is engaged in business lending with member business loans, while Wings, as policy, does not do business lending.

However, City-County locations will continue to provide business lending after the merger. City-County Federal Credit Union has struggled financially over the last few

County members, he said. Prior to the merger, Wings already had 20,000 members in the northern Minneapolis area, while City-County had about 20,000 in the south metro. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a good deal for members because it will give them greater access and more convenience than before,â&#x20AC;? Wagner said. Once the merger is complete, Wings will operate City-County under the Wings name and retain the majority of City-Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 150 employees. This is Wing Financialâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second merger this month. The credit union also reached an agreement to merge with St. Paul-based Highgrove Community Federal Credit Union. Wagner said Highgrove will likely begin operating under the Wings name in October.

          

 

Out of the Great Depression, Minnesotaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest credit union was born. Apple Valley-based Wings Financial Credit Union was founded in St. Paul in 1938 to serve Northwest Airlines employees and has taken flight ever since. The difference between a credit union and a conventional bank is that a credit union is a nonprofit cooperative that is owned by members who pay deposits, while a conventional bank is privately owned by shareholders. Credit unions are exempt from taxes while conventional banks are not. In 2004, Wings changed its charter from one focused on aviation to a state charter and moved it headquarters to Apple Valley. This opened its membership to anyone who lives, works or worships in the 13-county Twin Cities metropolitan area. At the time, the airline industry was facing layoffs causing the credit union to lose those members, so it decided to diversify, said John Wagner, vice president of marketing for Wings Financial. â&#x20AC;&#x153;While we were still doing quite well, our pie was shrinking,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For our credit union to grow, we needed new membership.â&#x20AC;?

As of June, its assets were $469.68 million while its net worth was 3.37 percent. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Even though we managed to turn things around, it would have taken quite a bit of time to build enough capital to offer the level of services our members are entitled to,â&#x20AC;? Deyo said. As a result, the credit union saw a merger with Wings as its best option, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This will provide an opportunity for growth and financial stability,â&#x20AC;? Deyo said. In addition to providing a viable option for CityCounty, the merger will provide more convenience for existing Wings and City-

Does dance team belong on this page? by Andy Rogers THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

If you want to see who has some of the biggest fans in all of high school, go to the Target Center in mid-February for the dance team state tournament. The people that fill up the arena are as loud as anyone else that enters. The problem with “covering” dance team is finding out what to write about. There are injuries and heartache; winners and losers. It’s similar to gymnastics or ice skating where the judges decide the final score. Every team works

PRESSBOX hard and every coach is proud. Many times the nut of the story is found in individual statistics. As far as I know, there are none for dance team. Sports writing is driven by statistics such as touchdowns, goals, ERAs, times and baskets. There’s no doubt dance team is one of the most enthusiasm-inducing activities anyone could be a part

of, and from my perspective it has the most enthusiastic parents who want to see their kids recognized. There’s interest in all kinds of sports but there’s only so much time and space available. Thisweek has printed stories before about dance team in the sports and news section. I believe that the story is sometimes best told through photographs. During the state tournament, I don’t think any paper publishes more photos. Online you can find hundreds of pictures of the state tournament at Thisweeklive.com.

The question is whether dance belongs on the sports page. Does it count toward Title IV? I don’t believe so. So is it an activity or a sport? Does it really matter? If there’s interest out there, then it’s newsworthy. But where does it go? I’m curious to hear your opinion. You can send it to andy.rogers@ecm-inc.com.

During a Burnsville High School football minicamp this week, Burnsville alumni and Tampa Bay Buccaneer James Ruffin stopped by for a visit. Following a workout with the team, he addressed the attendees. He headed for training camp on Thursday with the Bucs. Ruffin graduated from Northern Iowa this spring as one of the top defensive ends in school history. He was signed by the Bucs after the NFL Draft in April as an undrafted free agent. He was a two-year starter in basketball and three-year starter in football, playing both fullback and linebacker for the Blaze.

Kelliher was runner-up at 130. Steven Keogh was fourth at 160 and Jake Waste was seventh at 171 pounds. The big winner for Apple Valley was Destin McCauley. He was the national champion at 152 pounds and was voted outstanding wrestler of the tournament. He was recently named the No. 1 recruit in the nation in all weight classes by InterMat Wrestling, according to Jackson. Other Apple Valley wrestlers had solid showings as well. Shamar Williams went 2-2 in Greco. Danial Woiwor and Deven Scott both went 4-2.

Apple Valley wrestlers proved to be some of the best in the country at the 2010 Junior And Cadet National Championships July 18-24 in Fargo. Seven wrestlers received All-American honors for their performances. “It’s quite a feat,” Apple Valley varsity head coach Jim Jackson said. “It’s the best we’ve ever done in history.” In the junior cadet division, Gannon Volk won two All-American awards for taking fourth in Greco and fifth in freestyle at 84 pounds.

Basketball, volleyball coaches named at DCTC Former MCTC coach, eight-time coach of the year to lead basketball team Dakota County Technical College in Rosemount has named two head coaches for new two new athletic programs. Kari Peterson was named head volleyball coach and Jay Pivec the new men’s basketball coach. Pivec, one of the top coaches in the history of NJCAA Division III basketball, previously coached the Minneapolis Community and Technical College

Mavericks. DCTC and Pivec are gearing up to launch Blue Knights men’s basketball in October 2011. The plan is to have the team compete as an independent at the NJCAA DII level, but having the Knights join a conference is also a possibility. Pivec is an eight-time Minnesota College Athletic Conference Coach of the Year and entered the MCAC Hall of Fame in

2002. During his career at MCTC, he posted a 425-115 record, leading the Mavericks to four appearances in the DIII national tournament, including two secondplace finishes. In 2010, he entered the NJCAA Men’s Basketball Coaches Association Hall of Fame. With 452 wins, he ranks second among active DIII coaches. While at MCTC, he coached eight NJCAA First-Team

All-Americans, a feat unmatched by any other DIII program in the U.S. Pivec will be focusing a good share of his recruiting energy in the south metro by relationships with high school coaches. Peterson, a former NCAA Division II National Player of the Year, is recruiting for fall 2011 inaugural season that will compete as an independent at the NJCAA Division II

level starting fall 2011. Peterson plans to have the Knights compete in a number of tournaments against Division II competition in Iowa, North Dakota and Illinois. As a player, Peterson was a setter at Augustana College in Sioux Falls, S.D. from 1997-2001, earning AVCA Division II National Player of the Year honors in 2000.

Local nine hopes to round the bases at state legion by Andy Rogers THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

If history repeats itself, one area American Legion baseball team might find itself playing at the regional tournament again this year. Third District winner Eastview along with first runner-up Lakeville North and second runnerup Eagan qualified for the Legion State Tournament from Thursday to Monday in Hibbing. The top two teams move on to the either the Great Lakes Regional in Illinois or Central Plains Regional tournament in Missouri in August, which is good news for local teams because the Third District has a reputation of success at state. Apple Valley won the state American Legion tournament in 2002 and was runner-up in 2009, 2007 and 2004. In 2008, Eastview won the state title. Coaches feel that the Third District tournament prepares the team well for state. “There are so many tremendous programs (in the district),” Lakeville North head coach Josh Storm said. “They don’t take days off. There’s a lot of key Lake Conference teams in our group like Eagan, Burnsville, Rosemount, Apple Valley and Lakeville

South. We’re playing a high level of competition.” The tournament also features programs from Forest Lake, Stillwater and Woodbury, which also provides stiff competition. “It’s almost like a state tournament,” Storm said. “We’re facing some tremendous pitching and it sets you up to be successful at the state tournament and beyond.” Since the competition level is so high, one good or bad play can determine the outcome of the game. “You have to have a little bit of the baseball gods on your side and you need a good draw,” Eastview head coach Bob Klefsaas said. “That’s what baseball is all about. I love to be able to go out on the field and say this team might be better on paper than us, but if we make some great plays, any day of the week you can beat anybody.”

Eagan One of the biggest surprises of the district tournament was No. 8 seed Eagan. As teams learned last year, Eagan saves its best for playoffs. Last year, Eagan was a No. 12 seed. “It’s been an impressive run the past few years,” head coach Kevin Nagel said. “It’s pretty impressive

what the kids have been able to do without having the advantages of a top seed.” Eagan used a victory at a legion baseball tournament in Plover, Wis., in early July as a springboard to win nine of its final 11 games. “The kids really jelled during that out-of-town tournament,” Nagel said. “There’s something about getting out of state.” Success starts on the mound for Eagan. Neal Kunik is one of the top pitchers in Minnesota. He’s the only player to give Eden Prairie a loss this year. He’s gone 17-0 stretching back to June 24, 2009, counting high school and legion games. Eagan has five accomplished pitchers – Charlie Conkel, Taylor Mathiason, Garrison Harris and Brad Walker. “We’re going to be a tough matchup for any team later in the tournament,” Nagel said. Twenty-three home runs have fueled Eagan’s offense at the plate. “I thought they were going to be small-ball,” Nagel said. “They turned out to be a run-producing machine.” JD Dorgan and Harris lead Eagan’s home run derby with seven and six, respectively. Both are hitting above .400.

With some state tournament experience behind them, Nagel knows what it will take to be successful. “Last year, if you look at the statistics, we were the best hitting team and the worst fielding team,” Nagel said. This year, Eagan is more balanced. “I just hope the kids come focused,” Nagel said. “Maybe last year they were just happy to be there. We have nine guys returning.” Eagan was rated No. 20 in the final State American Legion coaches and media baseball poll.

Eastview

year.” Klefsaas figured that manufacturing runs was the right fit for the team. “Put the ball in play and run,” Klefsaas said. “I’m not sure if they ever played that way growing up. It took a while for them to understand, but now they have it. They’re peaking at the right time.” The team’s top three pitchers have an ERA of less than one run and the team’s defense has had 36 errors in 33 games. The team’s top pitcher has been Ty McDevitt, who has gone 6-1 this season with a 0.47 ERA. Tom Jerle has a 0.91 ERA striking out 56 batters in 31 innings. Joe Voss went 7-0 with a 0.91 ERA. Adam Morris has also been a big help going 5-0. He’s allowed 25 hits and three walks while striking out 38. Eastview also has five players batting over .400 – Matt Larson, Alex Knop, McDevitt and Ty and Cody Groskruetz. Eastview entered the state tournament ranked No. 2 in the state but the team drew a tough bracket with No. 3 North St. Paul and No. 1 Eden Prairie up first.

In many ways this was supposed to be a rebuilding year. With 13 of the team’s 18 players eligible to play in 2011, coach Klefsaas thought 2010 would be too early to have success. “We blossomed a lot quicker than I thought,” Klefsaas said. “We’re real fortunate.” Klefsaas and Eastview won a state tournament in 2008. He feels this year’s version has better depth and pitching, but there’s no comparison until it’s all over. “The 2008 team had a lot more savvy,” Klefsaas said. Rogers is at “They did the little things Andy better at the end of the andy.rogers@ecm-inc.com.

Spanning decades The district has leased the 9,000-square-foot space at Grace Lutheran since 1989 to serve residents in the southern portion of the district.

Originally, the church donated the space to the district, said district Finance Director Jeff Solomon. One of the ABE teachers was the wife of the pastor of the church, Solomon said, which served to bring the two entities together. As time went on, the church needed to charge the district rent, but â&#x20AC;&#x153;it has always been under market,â&#x20AC;? Solomon said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The church treated it as community outreach,â&#x20AC;? he said. As time progressed, the district began to outgrow the space. During the early years, the ABE and ECFE served 60 adults and 30 chil-

An architectural analysis three years ago revealed the programs would need an additional 5,000 square feet of dedicated space. The new site fits this criteria.

portunity to be part of its building program, but the district declined. The decision was financial. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The terms changed to market rates and a longterm commitment,â&#x20AC;? Solomon said. The district was looking for a long-term site for its programs, he said, but not under traditional lease terms. Solomon speaks highly of the districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s relationship Capital campaign with Grace Lutheran. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The church has been As the district sought more space, Grace Luther- very accommodating,â&#x20AC;? he an embarked on its own expansion of programming and renovation of its space.

Steven/from 1A tioned to play piano in a teen worship band at Evergreen Community Church in Lakeville. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He has a lot of technique and all that, but he really took to the theory when I started him on it,â&#x20AC;? said Dave Durry, Evergreenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s musical director. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was a classical player and had all the lessons and technique, but never understood music. I just taught him a little bit about music theory, a little piece at a time, and he sucked it up real fast.â&#x20AC;? The muse bloomed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At the time, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d hit up to seven hours practicing a day,â&#x20AC;? Steven said. He already had access to his familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grand piano upstairs in the living room. At 14, he began assembling his studio, starting with a Yamaha S90ES keyboard and synthesizer he bought Budget/from 1A But Commissioner Paul Krause questioned why the county is devoting $2.8 million of its budget, a disproportional amount compared to other metro counties, on preventing homelessness. Commissioner Tom Egan said the county should not be leading an independent effort to save energy, but working with others to achieve that goal. Commissioner Nancy Schouweiler asked if laying off workers would exacerbate the problem, and commissionCO/from 1A burning devices are not properly vented, operated, or maintained. It is estimated that unintentional CO exposure causes about 500 deaths in the United States each year. In addition, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission estimates that 8,000 to 15,000 people each year are examined or treated in hospitals for non-fire related CO poisoning. The Eagan Fire Department receives about seven

with a loan from the folks. The studio is now outfitted with several instruments, a drum kit, effects, amps, microphones and digital interface â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s paid for. Steven has been able to repay his loans working at his fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cabinet business in Minneapolis. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m spoiled as well,â&#x20AC;? he offered cheerfully. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My father says the difference between spoiled and blessed is spoiled, you wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t admit it. Blessed, you admit it and are grateful for what you have.â&#x20AC;? Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s already released two albums, including one featuring his acoustic guitar playing. Steven considers himself a romantic composer, inspired by the works of Liszt, Beethoven and Rachmaninoff. His sonata incorporates harmonics he creates by reaching inside the piano and making contact

with the vibrating strings while he plays. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m more of a composer than a performer,â&#x20AC;? Steven said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of people will take sheet music from Bach or Beethoven and play it really well. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m more of a person that will look at their music, understand what they did, and write my own music thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s similar to it.â&#x20AC;? Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also a musician with a mission. The July 22 concert raised $3,000 for the Evergreen Community Churchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s contribution to the Kids Against Hunger ministry. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I feel that God is the one thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s given me the gift to express myself through music,â&#x20AC;? Steven said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what I love to do. In doing so, I want to give back to him and other people in my life.â&#x20AC;?

ers briefly debated whether employee unions would agree to multi-year wage freezes to avoid layoffs. It was also suggested that there may be more room for reductions in higher priority areas, than in other areas where few resources are already expended. County Administrator Brandt Richardson said they are trying to find a way to make reductions with the least amount of impact on county services, employees and residents. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going about this the right way, and as negative and

awful as it is, I think it really is helpful,â&#x20AC;? Schouweiler said of the process. Commissioners will continue budget discussions next month, with another workshop scheduled Aug. 24. On Nov. 2, the county plans to release the administratorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proposed budget and a public hearing on the budget and levy is Nov. 30. The final 2011 budget is set for adoption Dec. 14.

CO-related calls each week, most of which involve battery-operated detectors giving false alarms, Scott said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ninety-nine percent of the time itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just a bad detector,â&#x20AC;? he said. Battery-operated models seem to have more issues than plug-in or hard-wired detectors, he said. When the batteries are dying, they can falsely set the alarm off. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We really recommend not having just the batteryoperated ones,â&#x20AC;? he said. Scott also recommends having additional CO detec-
