Crews clean up the media center after a flood at Nicollet Junior High in Burnsville caused significant damage to the main floor of the building. Below, students returned to school Dec. 1 and found classrooms with concrete floors where water-soaked carpeting used to be.

School cleans up after flood Students returned to Nicollet Junior High after burst pipe dumped 120,000 gallons of water inside school by Erin Johnson THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

A total dollar amount has not yet been estimated, but officials say the damage to Nicollet Junior High in Burnsville is “fairly significant.” Students returned to the school Dec. 1 after a burst pipe flooded the building over Thanksgiving break, forcing it to close for two days. “People have been working around the clock” to clean up the school, said Principal Renee Brandner. Brandner said at least half of the main floor was covered in standing water during the flood, damaging carpets and walls, as well as bookshelves, cabinets and computers in the media center. Water also soaked through to several classrooms on the first floor, including art classrooms where some student art was destroyed. The main office, guidance office, auxiliary gym and music rooms were also damaged, Brandner said. Cleaning crews have already removed carpeting, sheetrock, ceiling tiles and some furniture from several classrooms and offices. “Staff did an excellent job by being flexible. They were well prepared and showed great teamwork,”

Brandner said of their first day back after the flood. “Students were appropriate and ready to learn. The day functioned as any other day except we had to move classrooms around.” The flood occurred Sunday, Nov. 28, when a frozen water pipe thawed and burst, flooding the school with about 120,000 gallons of water. Video from a security camera shows the pipe began to leak around 12:30 p.m. A neighborhood resident called police at 3:30 p.m. and reported seeing water coming out the front doors of the school. The pipe, part of the school’s sprinkler system, was located over the front office area on the main floor of the building.

Ruth Dunn, communications director for the Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School District, said an alarm that triggers when too much water comes through the pipe failed to sound, even though it passed inspection last June. Brandner said the shortterm goal was to reopen the school to students. Beyond that, officials don’t have a firm timeline for when the full cleanup will be complete. “There’s too many unknowns,” she said. A total estimate of the damage is expected within the next few days, she said. Jessica Harper contributed to this story. Erin Johnson is at eagan.thisweek@ecm-inc. com.

Eagan High School students have a pretty consistent vision of the city’s future, and that future includes gas-free hover cars zipping around town within the next 50 years. Several students said they think the city will be much bigger and will feature high rises, malls, and maybe even more restaurants. One 11th-grader predicted the city’s population will be mostly elderly, “but it will be a lively bunch of folks!” Predictions from more than 100 EHS students of what Eagan will look like in the year 2060 will soon be placed in the city’s time capsule, not to be opened for 50 years. The capsule will be stored in the floor of the new fire safety campus on Yankee Doodle Road and Wescott Woodlands beginning in January. In addition to the students’ predictions, the city collected a representative sampling of items from around the community to show what life is like in 2010. Residents, businesses, and schools all got in on

Eagan teen fine after her SUV falls from overpass 16-year-old Eastview student was on her way to school when she lost control of vehicle by Erin Johnson THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

A 16-year-old Eagan girl had quite a scare on her way to school Nov. 30 when her SUV careened off an overpass and landed on the highway below. Gwen Nelson, an Eastview student, was wearing her seatbelt at the time and managed to walk away with no major injuries, according to the State Patrol. “That likely prevented very serious injury or even death,” said Lt. Eric Roeske. “She’s very fortunate.” The crash occurred just

after 7 a.m. in Apple Valley. According to the State Patrol, Nelson was on an overpass in the process of exiting from southbound Cedar Avenue onto County Road 38 (McAndrews Road) at the time of the crash. Nelson said she lost control of her vehicle when it hit a patch of ice and slid, then went up a snowbank against the guardrail and over the edge of the bridge. Her SUV landed upside down in the southbound lane of the road below. The fall was likely about

20 feet, Roeske said. Nelson was not able to get out of the vehicle herself; a responding trooper had to break the window to extricate her. Roeske said she was fortunate her SUV didn’t land on another vehicle or get hit by a passing vehicle during morning traffic. Nelson was taken by ambulance to Regions Hospital and released the same day, he said. Erin Johnson is at eagan. thisweek@ecm-inc.com.

Students give thanks to troops by Jessica Harper THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

One local elementary school extended its appreciation beyond Thanksgiving this year by spending the past month putting together care packages for U.S. troops. Students at Echo Park Elementary in Burnsville collected 80 boxes full of items ranging from Girl Scout cookies to board games that will be sent to U.S. soldiers serving overseas. “This is our way to thank our soldiers who protect our country and to remind them they are being thought of when they are so far from home … especially during the holidays,” said Pam Keuler, Echo Park school social worker and one of the project’s organizers. The 700 students each wrote letters or drew pictures to include in the care packages as well. The project, called Operation

Troops Not Forgotten, was in cooperation with a care package drive organized by the American Legion and the U.S. Postal Service. On Nov. 29, Echo Park’s student council packed the boxes, which will be delivered Dec. 3-5 to a drop-off site at Rosedale Center in Roseville. The goal was to teach the students about patriotism and generosity, Keuler said “I hope it reminds (the students) how the military has helped us and protects us,” she said. Co-organizer and Echo Park instructional assistant Paula Kranz said she hopes the project opened up discussions in the classroom. “Being able to talk with teachers about it will broaden their world a little bit,” she said.

Thomson Reuters aims to support justice in Africa Publisher donates $1.2 million worth of law books

By supplying students and leaders in these countries with up-to-date books on international standards of law, there will be a better understanding of and respect for democracy, justice and the rule of law, Plonski

explained. The rule of law is a legal concept that includes the right to vote in free and fair elections and the right to establish a business without the threat of militia rule or extortion. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When we provide education, we prevent future problems from occurring,â&#x20AC;? Plonski said.

 

Publishing giant Thomson Reuters announced Nov. 29 that it will donate about $1.2 million worth of law books to Africa to help emerging democracies understand and establish justice systems. The company, which has a division in Eagan, plans to send the international textbooks and teaching materials to law schools and governing institutions through St. Paul nonprofit Book For Africaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jack Mason Law and Democracy Initiative. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are very excited that they are providing the support as well as cash contributions,â&#x20AC;? aid Patrick Plonski, the executive director of Books for Africa. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Their level of commitment of support is a great example for other corporations of what can be done.â&#x20AC;? When a nation is plagued by economic crises, poverty, malnutrition and illiteracy, justice often goes by the wayside. Even in emerging democracies, law schools and bar associations often struggle to obtain up-to-date materials or have no books at all.

Lawmakers want to outlaw synthetic marijuana by T.W. Budig ECM CAPITOL REPORTER

Opinion Thisweek Columnist Communities will be asked to do more for those who cannot afford housing by Don Heinzman THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

During this holiday season, more attention is focused on people who are struggling with just living and finding shelter. One group, often hidden in the suburban counties, is the homeless, particularly homeless families with children. The recession is taking its toll on families who cannot find or afford housing. The most recent study by the Wilder Foundation revealed that a little over a year ago, there were 9,432 homeless people in Minnesota, up 22 percent from 2006. The Wilder Foundation defined homeless as people

in shelters, transitional housing and on the streets. Wh at ’s alarming is that one out of four people looking for shelter are children. The greater percentage of people looking for shelters is single adults with children, mainly single mothers. In Anoka County more than 1,300 children and adults represent a 40 percent increase over a year ago. Sherburne County last year had 170 homeless families with children. Schools in Sherburne County reported 85 students from

homeless families in school year 2008-09. In a five-county region, where Cambridge has a shelter program, New Pathways came in contact with 300 households, some of whom were served in a church-based program. There is a Family Promise program that began in New Jersey and is a model for the Cambridge and Anoka shelter programs. This hospitality program is only for families with children and involves having at least 13 host church congregations. Each church takes one week every quarter to feed guests a dinner, shelter them overnight, feed them breakfast and pack bag lunches.

During the day they are transported to a Day Center where their children are picked up and taken to school. Guests are screened to see that they meet requirements, and the objective is to help them find work and some affordable housing. Their biggest obstacle, say program directors, is a shortage of affordable housing. Cambridge has been running this shelter program in a five-county area since 2002. Last year New Pathways served 37 families, six at a time and maximum of 24 people. Last year 67 households were turned away because facilities were full.

In Anoka County, the Family Promise program serves four families at a time and a maximum of 14 individuals living in separate classrooms. An anonymous donor gave the van used to transport the guests to a center. In Elk River six women are working to sign up churches for the Family Promise program. So far they have five and need at least 12 to get started to serve a region within 30 miles of Elk River. There are Family Promise programs in Brainerd, Rochester and Minneapolis and 161 nationwide. As joblessness continues and state and federal resources dwindle, commu-

nities will be asked to do more for those who cannot afford housing. The Family Promise model involves churches, volunteers, community and county resources at a low cost.

Guest Columnist Let’s extend the spirit of sharing, community throughout the year by Mary Ajax SPECIAL TO THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

These past weeks our offices at 501 E. Highway 13 in Burnsville have been humming as our Armful of Love volunteers register families for this holiday gift program. Started in the early 1970s by a group of our volunteers, Armful of Love has become a community tradition. It’s easy and natural to join a giving program when trees are sparkling with lights, holiday music fills the air and everyone’s filled with the spirit of brotherly love. My challenge to you, today, is to keep alive the spirit of sharing and community all through the year. The good vibes our volunteers get when working together through Armful of Love, our food shelves or at Lewis House are an intangible reward. My grown sons, Scott and Andy, participated

in Armful of Love as boys. While many families would pick a family whose kids were the same age as theirs, then shop for them, my sons did Armful of Love through their preschools, classrooms, or schools’ clubs. They got so excited about choosing the gifts. They liked this way of caring for other kids. They developed ownership in the project and pride in doing something for a stranger. I overheard a boy who came to donate to Armful of Love make a remark to his mother about the families who were waiting to be interviewed: “These kids don’t look poor.” “No, they look like everyone else,” his mother responded. The kid sitting next to you at school may be in a family that’s struggling.

Participating in Armful of Love provides an opportunity for parents and grandparents to discuss with youngsters how they or their forebears grew up poor, how little they lived on when they first came to this country, how they “made do” during the Great Depression. Yes, the giving and receiving families are strangers; no names are ever given during the exchange of needs and gifts. A family in need comes in and registers, they list the needs of the family members, things like a shirt, pajamas or slippers. After matching, the giving family fills the requests, then adds a toy or book, something fun. Requests range widely. For example, a teenage boy requested ski goggles. The volunteer asked him why he was requesting help when he could afford to ski. He explained that his dad was

dying of cancer and that he delivered papers to earn some money, riding his bike every day in the cold. The ski goggles would protect his eyes from the bitter cold. He got them. In another case, a young woman began to cry while making her requests. There she sat, holding her baby, sobbing. Finally, she explained that her husband had recently died. She was overwhelmed. Our Armful of Love volunteers put her in touch with other resources. She later told us how struck she was by the kindness of strangers, the love she felt from our crew. Groups such as scout troops and entire departments of local businesses also participate in Armful of Love. At Blue Cross and Blue Shield, Eagan, a work team will sponsor several families. Even with many continuing sponsors, we always

need new ones. The number of families in need has kept growing. This year we’ll serve 1,200 families. Participating in Armful of Love taught my boys teamwork and delegating. How much money will we need and how do we raise it? How to get the presents wrapped and delivered? Activities like this teach leadership. Young people learn how to make a plan and carry it through. These skills translate to the workplace. Armful of Love has loyal volunteers who work long hours keeping the needs and the gifts organized. The workers enjoy a wonderful camaraderie, and many become dear friends. This is an ideal volunteer opportunity for folks who head south after the holidays. Let me repeat my challenge to you. Let’s extend the holiday spirit across

the year. Let’s be on the lookout for projects in the schools, at our churches and here at 360 Communities where we can use our time and talents to make a difference for others. In the end we will all benefit.

all of it is spent in sporting goods stores. Hunters also buy gas, eat in local restaurants and shop in local grocery stores to fill coolers before they head out to the field. All of this spending supports more than 14,390 jobs in Minnesota. Hunting season brings increased revenue to a variety of businesses, which is why the Dakota County Regional Chamber decided to join Hunting Works for Minnesota, a partnership between sportsmen organizations such as Pheasants Forever, hotels, restaurants, sporting goods stores, hardware stores, convenience stores, and lo-

cal chambers of commerce and visitor and convention bureaus all across the state, to promote the economic benefits of hunting. Minnesota has a strong hunting heritage and the revenue it generates promotes a lot of positive economic activity which benefits everyone including hunters and non-hunters alike.  For more information on Hunting Works for Minnesota visit www.huntingworksformn.com.

Deepest appreciation

give way to smiles. God bless you.

And while Kurt Bills and I have very different ideas about how to move Minnesota forward, I have no doubts about his sincerity and his commitment to putting our state back on track and I stand ready to assist him and his family in any way I can. Though the legislative session is over and the campaign has come to an end, I will be on the job until the stroke of midnight Dec. 31. Please continue contacting me with your input, questions and comments. Hearing your perspectives always helped me make better decisions on your behalf. It has been an honor to serve you.

It’s been a privilege to serve residents To the editor: I’d like to thank the residents of District 37B for the privilege of serving as their state representative. When I decided to stand for office early in 2008, it was with a strong belief in the call to public service. I’ve always believed it’s our duty as Americans and Minnesotans to find ways to engage each other to make our community and our world a better place. There is no greater honor in a democracy than to be selected by one’s fellow citizens to represent them in the halls of government. I will always be grateful for the privilege of serving in our beautiful Capitol working to enhance the quality of life for the residents of Apple Valley and Rosemount. While the results on Election Day were not what I had hoped, I have no regrets and I’m proud of what you helped me accomplish. While the challenges we still face make it difficult to see our progress, the work we did together means fewer people will be without a job, our infrastructure will be stronger, the climate for small businesses will be greatly improved and opportunities for veterans and their families enhanced.

PHIL STERNER State Representative, District 37B

Thanks for making Scouting for Food a success To the editor: I would like to thank the Eagan Rainbow Foods for letting Boy Scout Troop 171 do Scouting for Food on Nov. 21 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Rainbow customers donated a lot of food to help four of the local food shelves. My troop was one of many Cub Scout packs and Boy Scout troops that collected food from Nov. 19-21 at the Eagan and Apple Valley Rainbow Foods. STEVEN WILL Troop 171 youth coordinator Apple Valley

who chooses a fighter plane over Glenn Miller. â&#x20AC;&#x153;1940s Radio Hourâ&#x20AC;? runs Dec. 3-19 at 7:30 p.m. Thursdays through Saturdays, and 2 p.m. Sundays, in the PACâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Black Box Theatre.

Rosemount falls to Wayzata in state final by Andy Rogers THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

The Rosemount football team’s defense had an answer for everything this season. No team was able to score more than 18 points during playoffs against the Irish. Not until the state final. The Irish didn’t have an answer for Wayzata on Nov. 26 during the Prep Bowl. Specifically, they couldn’t find a way to stop Wayzata’s sophomore running back Mitch Underhill, who scored more than 18 points on his own. Rosemount lost to Wayzata 31-14 in the Class 5A state final, which was held at the Metrodome in Minneapolis. Underhill had 12 carries for 247 yards and four touchdowns in the win. They all came off quick bursts straight to the end zone for 45 yards or more. None of Wayzata’s scoring drives lasted more than a minute. “Those big plays are something you can’t allow if you want to play with those guys,” Rosemount head coach Jeff Erdmann said after the game. The Irish relied on a powerful rushing offense with more than 3,000 yards this season, but Wayzata’s defense appeared to be the rock to Rosemount’s scissors. Running back Nicholas Liska and quarterback Kevin Larson weren’t cut-

Wayzata started out the game with a one-two punch. The Trojans’ Jeff Borchardt returned the opening kickoff 36 yards and two plays later Underhill finished it off with a 45-yard run. The teams traded a pair of fumbles and scores before halftime. Rosemount’s Colton Crow recovered the ball on Wayzata’s 12-yard line after a mishandled punt. Larson took it the rest of the way with a 3-yard

run tying the game at 7-7. Rosemount’s Logan Lindberg’s fumble gave Wayzata the ball at their own 22-yard line, but the defense held Wayzata to a field goal. Midway through the third quarter the floodgates opened up. Underhill broke through the line untouched and ran 66 yards straight to the end zone. He wasn’t done. On Wayzata’s next drive he broke free again for 58 yards and Rosemount was

behind 24-7, its largest margin of the season. “We played very consistent all year, but the third quarter was our worst quarter all year,” Erdmann said. Underhill still wasn’t finished running. The next time he touched the ball, he ran for 58 yards, bouncing off defenders on his way to six more points. Wayzata scored 21 points in the third quarter before Rosemount Andy Rogers is at could counter. “No one was able to andy.rogers@ecm-inc.com. score that much on us all

Uptick in talent for girls hockey teams Several programs have a South Suburban Conference title in mind by Andy Rogers THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

The South Suburban Conference appears to have several front-runners gunning for the conference title. Lakeville South, which won the Lake Conference last year with most of the current South Suburban teams, has most of its top players back. Rosemount, Burnsville, Eagan and Eastview have also drawn some earlyseason buzz based on the number of talented players returning to the ice, and Apple Valley is off to a positive start. “Many of the teams we play will be better than they were last season,” Burnsville coach Bruce Anderson said. Two current South Suburban teams played in the Class AA state tournament last year: Burnsville and Lakeville North. “I think any team can beat or be beaten on any given night in this conference so it will be a battle for the championship,” Rosemount coach Tracy Cassano said.

Burnsville Since winning the consolation title in the Class AA state tournament, the Blaze has lost some of its best players to graduation, including Amanda Colin, Lauren Barnes and goalie Alex Hall. But Megan Kilmer, Kasey Evans and Jesse Mara are back as captains, along with junior Jenny Maloney, who was the team’s No. 3 scorer last year. “We have a lot of players returning who helped us win the Section 3AA championship and state consolation championship,” Anderson said. “We expect a very competitive conference and section.” To repeat its success, the Blaze will have to rely on the experience of playing at state last year. The Blaze lost its first four games of the year to Hopkins 6-4, Hastings 5-4,

Lakeville South 6-2 and Park of Cottage Grove 3-2. Burnsville got its first victory on Tuesday beating Apple Valley 4-2. The Blaze will travel to Bloomington Kennedy for a 2:15 p.m. game on Saturday. The Blaze will play several top teams such as Lakeville South, Rosemount and Edina before hosting its own tournament on Dec. 28.

Rosemount If the Irish had only one thing going for them this season, it would be the fact that they have two of the best players in the metro. Senior forwards Allison Micheletti and Rachael Kelly are back, ready to improve on last year’s 16-102 record along with fellow captain Amanda Wilson. “They will continue to lead by example through hard work and dedication,” Cassano said. Their main motivation this year is to return to section finals. Last year they lost to Burnsville, one game shy of playing at state. Micheletti and Kelly will have familiar faces, such as forward Alison Warweg, back on the ice with them. Newcomers Taylor Sampson, Lauren Riley and Kendra Goodrich have had their share of success already with club teams. Caitlin Dantzscher is the returning goaltender. The goal is to get into position for a South Suburban Conference title and be a contender in the section by the end of the season. “We are more a veteran and experienced team now,” Cassano said. And it shows. The Irish won their first four games in dominant fashion beating Park of Cottage Grove 4-3, Centennial 5-1, Bloomington Jefferson 7-1 and Prior Lake 7-1.

Eagan The Wildcats’ goal for 2010-11 is to compete for a South Suburban Conference title and make another strong run at the Section 3AA title. Last year the girls team went 18-7-2 and finished third in the Lake Conference, losing to Rosemount 5-1 in section semifinals.

“We think we have the players to have a solid season once we start to gel,” co-head coach Jeff Kolehmainen said. The girls lost their first three games to Shakopee 5-4, Park of Cottage Grove 3-0 and Eastview 2-1. Kolehmainen knows there’s plenty of time to pick it up. Since then the Wildcats have defeated Henry Sibley 4-3 and Bloomington Kennedy 7-1 with some help from every line. “We have a good number of returners with varsity experience so we have some depth and good team speed,” he said. The Wildcats just need to find some consistent scoring after losing their top scorer, Kait Mason, to graduation last spring. That’s where forwards Bre Steele and Megan Wolfe come in. The No. 2 and No. 3 scorers from 2009-10, they will be assisted by Molly Sparks, who also scored double-digit goals last season. On defense, Megan Juricko and goalie Emily Oltrogge will try to keep Eagan’s opponents from scoring. Kolehmainen figures the teams to beat this year in the section and conference will be Rosemount and Burnsville again, but he feels the Wildcats will be in the mix. “We can compete with these teams if we can get our scoring figured out after this (tough) start,” Kolehmainen said.

Apple Valley

year and they did,” Erdmann said. “We don’t see many zone teams because no one else has that many big, fast guys every year. They can. You just have to be so sound on gap responsibility. Any crease and they find it.” Liska added a late touchdown with a 4-yard run, but with 3:31 left, there wasn’t much anyone could do to change the outcome. He finished with 21 carries for 68 yards and a touchdown. Larson ran for 41 yards and a touchdown. Crow led the team with seven tackles. Matt Larson, Jacob Mortenson and David Morgan all had four tackles. Jake O’Malley had an interception. Underhill picked a good time to break out for Wayzata. He had just three games of 100 rushing yards or more this season. Rosemount came into the game with some key injuries to its best players – particularly Brent Berghuis and Andrew Hausmann – but Erdmann wasn’t making any excuses. “This is our team and we’re proud of our guys,” Erdmann said. “Every week teams have players that don’t play. It’s part of the game.” The loss ends the season for Rosemount with a record of 11-1.

The losses came against Shakopee 7-3 and Burnsville 4-2. The Eagles have depth on their side as every player has fought hard for a spot on varsity. “Although we are a young team across the board, we have a great mix of strong veteran leadership and eager underclassmen,” Erdall said. Erdall knows the conference well. He played for Bloomington Jefferson in high school and helped coach a youth hockey team. After high school he went to Winona State University to play baseball, but continued to coach youth hockey. Soon he was coaching the varsity girls team to its first and only winning season in their history. After college, Erdall joined Lakeville North last year as junior varsity coach and varsity assistant. A successful season led to a job with Apple Valley after longtime head coach Chuck Scanlon stepped down. “We are off to a fantastic start, and I’m absolutely thrilled with the entire situation from our high school players and their parents, the support of the booster club and the arena staff and the commitment of the youth program,” Erdall said.

Eastview Most of the Lightning top scorers have returned for another shot at the net in 2010-11. Courtney Kukowski and Emily Snodgrass will lead the charge to the goal this year along with Sophie DesLauriers and Kelly Meyer. On defense, Lindsey Wilharm and Taylor Fienhage will try to lessen the blow from the loss of top goalie Lindsay Kauchick from last season. The combination has proved to be a success. The team defeated Eagan 2-1 in the season opener and went on to beat highly ranked Hopkins 4-2 and Bloomington Jefferson 4-3. The Lightning will make the trip to Prior Lake for a 5:30 p.m. game on Saturday.

The Apple Valley girls hockey team opened the season with 17 players with no high school experience and a new head coach, Don Erdall. The Eagles have had their share of troubles in recent years, winning 10 games in the past two seasons combined. The goal is to get to 10 wins in one year. “They have responded well to the style of play in what was a very compressed early season practice schedule,” Erdall said. The team is almost a third of the way to 10 wins already. The Eagles defeat- Andy Rogers is at ed Minneapolis 3-1, Tar- andy.rogers@ecm-inc.com. tan 5-0 and Richfield 3-1.

Eagles want to pick up where they left off by Andy Rogers THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

Coming off a trip to the state tournament, the Apple Valley boys hockey team is generating plenty of buzz for 2010-11. Sure, the Eagles have many of their stars back on the ice, but coach Gerry Hayes knows how quickly things can turn. Before the playoffs last year, Apple Valley was 1411 with just two wins in its previous eight games. “We peaked at the right time,” Hayes said. “In the regular season it’s not like we were dominant. “If you look at our season as a whole, we weren’t the favorite.” This season, the team is ranked No. 7 in the state in the latest poll. “The kids are excited, the school is excited, but so are the other 145 programs,” Hayes said. The team lost just six seniors to graduation, but it’s still not senior-heavy. Leading the list of returning seniors is goalie Aaron Gretz, a three-year letter winner who has been through it all. “He’s getting better every year,” Hayes said. “It all starts with him.” The other seniors are forwards Chris Goodman and Michael Berens, who have both played plenty of varsity hockey. They’ll guide two of the top forwards around in AJ Michaelson, who turned down a spot on the U.S. National Development team, and Hudson Fasching, who just helped the Apple Valley boys soccer team win a state title. “They both have a great future in hockey, but they’re focused on the present,” Hayes said. Derek Smith is also back helping out on defense along with Vince Pedrie and Anthony Leong. They were all part of last year’s state tournament team that upset Blaine 2-0 in the state quarterfinals. “They tasted something that’s very special,” Hayes See Hockey, 8A

Blaze hockey ready to melt the ice by Andy Rogers THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

Even though the Burnsville boys hockey team took a big hit from graduation, the Blaze look as strong as ever. The Blaze graduated about 80 percent of its high-scoring crew from last seasonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s team that averaged more than four goals per game. But the Blaze filled the ice quickly with players who can pick up the slack. Hockey/from 7A said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Kids dream what itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like to be there. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pretty good motivation but we know we have to be better this year than last year to get back.â&#x20AC;? The team has avoided any serious injuries so far and the tempo in practice has been good, according to Hayes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time see where we stack up,â&#x20AC;? Hayes said. The schedule isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t very forgiving with teams like Eagan, Burnsville, Bloomington Jefferson and Lakeville South with similar high expectations. The Eagles already defeated Jefferson 4-3 on Tuesday. The Eagles have Eden Prairie, Duluth East and Wayzata on their non-conference schedule, and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll travel to Grand Forks, N.D., for the Stadstad Classic on Dec. 16. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People who know hockey, know there are some very skilled teams up there,â&#x20AC;? Hayes said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fun to play somewhere different.â&#x20AC;?

Eastview Last season the Lightning took some lumps on the rink, going 5-21 during the season. The Lightningâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s roster was filled with players new to varsity making the step

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We feel we had a good (junior varsity) team last year and a good bantam team, and we feel that players from those teams are able to adjust to varsity hockey and fill the void from last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s team,â&#x20AC;? Blaze head coach Janne Kivihalme said. Kivihalme hopes the team can learn a lot from the experience on the ice last season. The Blaze started out 2-4-2 before the Christmas break, but went on to

lose just three more games. The team was on a 10game winning streak before the season came to an end against Bloomington Jefferson in the section playoffs. The returning players know what it takes to win in a tough conference. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think that players coming back this year from last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s team know that they will have to step up and lead the team by example,â&#x20AC;? Kivihalme said.

Mike Dockry is the leading returning scorer after putting in 15 goals last season. Kivihalme is counting on his leadership abilities to rub off on other people. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mike is a responsible and talented player,â&#x20AC;? Kivihalme said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He plays responsible hockey at both ends of the ice and he is capable of making others around him better. He will lead by example.â&#x20AC;? A big reason Burnsville has such a high ranking is

the fact that opponents will have to get through goalie Bodhi Engum in order to beat the Blaze. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bodhi is one of the best goalies I have coached, and he is capable of being a dominant player,â&#x20AC;? Kivihalme said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If he continues to improve his game every day and keeps working hard, he will have a great future in hockey.â&#x20AC;? Engum will get some help from Sean Madigan, Eddie Wittchow, Hunter

Anderson and Nick Senta on defense. On the offensive end, Dockry has familiar faces in Jace Childs, Aaron Dupre, Cory Chapman and Mason Wyman to help the Blaze stay on the positive side of the scoreboard. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(They) will have to step up and fill the void of leadership that we lost from last year,â&#x20AC;? Kivihalme said. Kivihalme feels the team has balance across the lines See Blaze, 12A

from Bantam. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They found out what it takes to compete at the high school level, and have worked hard in the offseason to prepare themselves for this season,â&#x20AC;? Eastview coach Drey Bradley said. A young team in 2009 means an experienced team in 2010. Most of the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top scorers are back including Max Smith, Scott Nelson, Taylor Branstad and Bryce Gustafson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They will see a lot of ice early,â&#x20AC;? Bradley said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These top players will lead us, they are competitors. They have something to prove after last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s five-win season.â&#x20AC;? The offense will also get a boost from McDevitt and Nick Cerrato at forward along with newcomer Ryan McNamara. The trouble is replacing goalie Ryan Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Shea, who stopped almost 800 shots last year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It has been a good competition so far for the starting goalie spot,â&#x20AC;? Bradley said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are three (Erik Edsten, Ricky Williams and Alex Wohl) that are challenging each other every day, so that is good to see. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As in all phases of the game and at all positions, we need to continue to get better here and whoever gets the starting nod will earn it.â&#x20AC;? Whoever is in goal will

have Branstad, Jon Plaszcz and Ryan Reger helping out on defense, which should be much stronger this season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our defensive corps should be much improved, and should help keep us in games,â&#x20AC;? Bradley said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We also need to improve on our goal per game output from last year.â&#x20AC;? Bradley says thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been plenty of energy at practice and the boys are ready to play someone new. The team opened up with a home game against Hastings on Thursday. The teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s next home game is against Lakeville North on Dec. 9.

said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re really working hard and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re taking in everything weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve thrown at them.â&#x20AC;? Senior forward Mike Cossalter has taken charge as the captain. He has returning junior forwards Andy Gustafson and Trevor Kolden to help get some goals. The defense also has several experienced skaters

back such as Connor Langfeld, Mack Goodrich, Reese Richards, Ryan Gould and Josh Winter to go with Joe Kearney. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always nice to have that many returning,â&#x20AC;? Macho said. Senior goaltenders Justin Frank and Hank Fairchild are back competing for a spot in goal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve both logged

a lot of ice time,â&#x20AC;? Macho said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a friendly competition for a number of years.â&#x20AC;? The Irish will kick things off with a visit from Rochester Century at 7:40 p.m. on Saturday.

Rosemount The Irish have had a rough go the past few seasons winning six games the past two years. Rosemount would like to get back to the way the team played in 2007-08 when they won 20. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re just going to keep building as a team and as a program,â&#x20AC;? Irish head coach Scott Macho said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve made a lot of positive strides as a team this year.â&#x20AC;? Macho has been pleased with the positivity heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seen from the players during practice. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The most refreshing thing is how well the kids work together,â&#x20AC;? Macho

December 3, 2010 THISWEEK

Blaze/from 8A to compete and so far itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worked. The Blaze won its season opener against No. 4 Hill Murray 6-4 on Nov. 27. The schedule didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get much easier with a trip to Edina on Dec. 2. Next week the Blaze will welcome Eagan to town on Thursday night for the home opener.

Eagan Last year Eagan had one of the best records out of anyone in the state. Every loss was to a top10 team, the U.S. National womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s team or a team that played in the state tournament. Most of the victories were by two goals or more. During playoffs, things didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go exactly as planned. The Wildcats lost to Apple Valley by one goal in the section semifinals. The Wildcats saw nine seniors graduate in the spring, but several of their starting players have laced up their skates again, ready for a brutal schedule that right away features three top teams in the state. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We did have a solid year last year but that was last year,â&#x20AC;? Eagan head coach Michael Taylor said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This year is a new one and with

the strength of our schedule we will have to battle every night.â&#x20AC;? The Wildcats have leading scorer from last year Michael Zajac back on the ice. He had 43 points last year. Will Merchant is also back at forward along with Nick Kuchera. Goalie Tommy Bodeker will find his place back in net after stopping 92 percent of the shots he saw last year. Eli May will give him some help as one of the returning leaders on defense. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I hope our strength will be our depth, our work ethic and our discipline, but it is early right now and sometimes those things take time to develop,â&#x20AC;? Taylor said. With a difficult schedule and long season ahead, Taylor just wants to see progress from now to playoffs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our goal is to get better every game and be playing our best at the end of the season,â&#x20AC;? Taylor said. Eagan will find out what the No. 1 ranked team looks like on Saturday with a trip to Edina. Then theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll travel to Burnsville on Dec. 9 before coming home to play Minnetonka on Dec. 11.

Some 16 states already have bans against synthetic marijuana, including neighboring Iowa and North Dakota. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a serious problem,â&#x20AC;? said Backstrom, representing the Minnesota County Attorneys Association. Designer drugs spread quickly, he noted. Products like â&#x20AC;&#x153;Spiceâ&#x20AC;? or â&#x20AC;&#x153;K2â&#x20AC;? first appeared on the Internet in 2004 and quickly spread across the county. Although sold as incense and labeled as not for human consumption, the pot substitute is often smoked. Experts warn these product are powerful and laced with unknown hazards. Dr. Cody Wiberg, executive director of the Minnesota Board of Pharmacy, said the chemical ingredients in the products mimic those found in marijuana and affect the same receptors in the brain. This is not an accident. Some of these chemicals were specifically designed to Andy Rogers is at do exactly that, he said. andy.rogers@ecm-inc.com. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They were essentially

icals affect humans is unknown, he explained. Beyond this, whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also unknown are the other substances or herbs contained in these products. The bill the lawmakers will pursue is expansive enough to include slight chemical variations in these products â&#x20AC;&#x201C; molecules can be manipulated as to produce arguably another product immune to the law, Wiberg explained. Not that wholly new designer drugs wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t appear. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That happens all the time,â&#x20AC;? he said. And itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s often necessary to pursue them legally on a case-by-case basis, said Wiberg. The lawmakers hope to make products like â&#x20AC;&#x153;Spiceâ&#x20AC;? or â&#x20AC;&#x153;K2â&#x20AC;? Schedule I controlled substances â&#x20AC;&#x201C; carrying significant criminal penalties if possessed or sold. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re upbeat about passing the legislation this session.

It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t creative differences or interpersonal turbulence that prompted the dissolution of Ferris, the pop-rock band that Dustin Hatzenbuhler fronted with four of his Eastview High School classmates. Basically, it was just time to move on: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not like anything bad happened and we had to break up,â&#x20AC;? said Hatzenbuhler, whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s set to release a self-titled solo album early next year.

            ďż˝    



               

IN BRIEF Music fans have three chances to catch Apple Valley singer-songwriter Dustin Hatzenbuhler in concert this month: â&#x20AC;˘ 9 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 4, Varsity Theatre, Minneapolis; Hatzenbuhler will open for rock band Cedar Avenue ($8 cover) â&#x20AC;˘ 7 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 11, Dunn Bros coffee shop, 15265 Galaxie Ave., Apple Valley (no cover) â&#x20AC;˘ 8 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 16, Rudyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Redeye Grill, 20800 Kenrick Ave., Lakeville (no cover) A full concert schedule is available at www.dustinhatzenbuhler.com. cert choir and performed in musicals such as â&#x20AC;&#x153;Anything Goesâ&#x20AC;? and the annual musical revue â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bravo!â&#x20AC;? After high school, he enrolled at the Institute of Production Recording in Minneapolis in hopes of earning an audio-engineering degree, but Hatzenbuhler was not long for the school. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I only went for a couple of days,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;After two days I just felt like I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fit in.â&#x20AC;? So Hatzenbuhler went

the DIY route, setting up a small recording studio in his Apple Valley home. It was there he recorded Ferrisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2009 album, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dancing with Architects.â&#x20AC;? While Ferris has since disbanded (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not like anything bad happened and we had to break up â&#x20AC;&#x201C; we all just kind of mutually said it was time to move on,â&#x20AC;? he noted), two of Hatzenbuhlerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s former Ferris bandmates are lending a hand with his solo album.

Dustin Hatzenbuhler says he isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t interested in fame. Rather, the 22-year-old Apple Valley singer-songwriter has more modest career goals in mind â&#x20AC;&#x201C; like earning a living, and exposing others to the magic of music. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want to be able to live comfortably from my music,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And if I can make one person get goosebumps or have the hair stand up on the back of their neck when they hear my music, then Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll feel like Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve hit the pinnacle.â&#x20AC;? Hatzenbuhler, a 2006 graduate of Eastview High School who formerly fronted the pop-rock band Ferris, is set to release his first full-length solo CD early next year. As the album nears completion, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s business as usual for Hatzenbuhler, a regular performer at area music venues. In the coming month he has shows lined up at the Varsity Theatre in Minneapolis (Dec. 4), Dunn Bros coffee shop in Apple Valley (Dec. 11) and Rudyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Redeye Grill in Lakeville (Dec. 16). Influenced by artists as diverse as John Mayer and Ray Charles, Hatzenbuhler sings and plays piano and ukulele. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was never really good at guitar, but for some reason I could play the ukulele â&#x20AC;&#x201C; I think it might be because it has four strings instead of six,â&#x20AC;? said Hatzenbuhler, who owns four ukuleles. He cut his teeth in music as a student in the Rosemount-Apple Valley-Eagan School District, playing oboe in the school band in grade school, and joining choir in eighth grade at Blackhawk Middle School in Eagan. At Eastview he was a member of the con-

Arts community food drive

The area office of Home Instead Senior Care has joined with local organizations in the Be a Santa to a Senior program to provide presents for seniors who otherwise might not receive a gift this holiday season. Christmas trees with ornaments featuring a seniorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name and gift ideas are on display through Dec. 13 at participating locations, which can be found online at www.beasantatoasenior. com. Holiday shoppers can pick up an ornament, buy items on the list and return them unwrapped to the store, along with the ornament attached. Volunteers will then collect, wrap and deliver the gifts to area seniors. A community gift-wrapping event will be held on Dec. 16. To help with the event, call (952) 882-9300.

The Burnsville Performing Arts Center (PAC) and the Burnsville Convention and Visitors Bureau are partnering with 360 Communities to restock local food shelves. Bring a nonperishable food item to the PAC during regular business hours or before any performance through Jan. 1, 2011. Specific items needed are canned fruit, cereal, canned tuna or chicken, boxed ready-made meals (like Tuna Helper or Chicken Helper), and cooking oil. Two large circular bins are located in the Burnsville Performing Arts Center lobby.

Hatzenbuhler/from 13A

In fact, Hatzenbuhlerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s piano-heavy self-titled album, being recorded in studio space at McNally Smith College of Music in St. Paul, features a roster of back-up musicians who have one thing in common: They all went to Eastview. Guitarist Ben Huhner and drummer Colin Burke, both ex-Ferris members, are contributing to the album, as are two other Eastview alumni, bass player Ben Kofeod and drummer Collin Meyer. Another Eastview alumnus, Brandon Sommers, is serving as audio engineer on the project. As his music career gets Andrew Miller is at andrew. off the ground, Hatzen- miller@ecm-inc.com.

buhler works part time with Apple Valleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Parks and Recreation Department. A few days a week he punches in at the Apple Valley Community Center, where he works as a volleyball attendant during open volleyball. Building a career in the music business is a process, he said. But the payoff can be transcendent. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not too huge of a religious person, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always said that when I go to concerts I kind of look at that as my church,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The feeling I get when I listen to music â&#x20AC;&#x201C; I want other people to feel that.â&#x20AC;?

Time Capsule/from 1A there anything that would be particularly valuable to historians, to people trying to look back to Eagan in 2010? Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re consulting historical experts to try to give us that guidance.â&#x20AC;? Items collected so far include books written by residents, a current parks and recreation brochure from the city, a Littlest Pet Shop toy donated by a sixyear-old who claims theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re â&#x20AC;&#x153;very popular,â&#x20AC;? and an Eagan firefighter helmet. Thomson Reuters submitted some photographs, one from the early 1900s of an editor at West Publishing, the other of a woman at a modern-day desk showing the technology of today, including her computer, PDA and phone. Delta Airlines donated a model airplane, Lockheed Martin donated a poster with a timeline of its history, and the Eagan Police Department contributed a model police car and miniature badge. But potentially of most interest to future citizens will be the personal memories, predictions, and words of wisdom submitted by students, residents, and city leaders. Each of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s department heads penned a letter to their successors 50 years in the future, as did the principal of Eagan High School and the CEO of Blue Cross and Blue Shield. Several residents wrote about their favorite memories of life in Eagan, including Anthony Caponi, founder of the Caponi Art Park, who submitted a letter explaining the changes he has seen in Eagan since he first visited in 1949. Born in Italy, Caponi is about to celebrate his 90th birthday, which he says may be commonplace in 2060, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but it is viewed as somewhat of an accomplishment today.â&#x20AC;? And of course, there are the Eagan High School studentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; predictions of what life will be like in 2060, which, in addition to flying cars, include a female president and Eagan â&#x20AC;&#x153;ruling the world.â&#x20AC;? One ninth-grader wondered whether there would actually be people around to open the capsule. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Well,â&#x20AC;? he wrote, â&#x20AC;&#x153;if someone does read this in 2060, then the Mayans were wrong. The world doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t end in 2012.â&#x20AC;? Erin Johnson is at eagan. thisweek@ecm-inc.com.
