Eagan author tells tale of state’s history through multiple perspectives by Jessica Harper SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE
History is made by a collection of different voices, experiences and points of view. Eagan author Hale Meserow illustrates this notion in his latest book, “Minnesota: The Great State.” The historical fiction novel explores Minnesota’s history from multiple perspectives that include the German settler, the Lakota warrior and the U.S. soldier stationed at Fort Snelling. “I hope my readers will be entertained while learn-
Hale Meserow ing something from my book,” the Eagan resident said. Meserow weaves the stories of both fictional and actual historical characters to illustrate Minnesota’s history beginning at early European settlement to present day. He decided to write the book after searching for
historical fiction novels on Minnesota and coming up dry. Since its release in July, Meserow has sold about 1,000 copies. Meserow is the author of 11 published works. He said he draws inspiration from his travels, life and Christian faith. “Everything I write has the Christian gospel in it in some way,” he said. Meserow also takes an interest in politics, stories of overcoming obstacles, including those who face racism — all issues that he’s explored in a number of books. Meserow’s passion for writing stems from his childhood. As a middle schooler, he once turned an essay assignment into a short story about a lively blood vessel who travels See AUTHOR, 7A
was charged by the Dakota County Attorney on March 4 with attempted theft by false representation, a felony. According to the criminal complaint, the Prior Lake resident received relocation funding from Dakota County in July 2011 after Luebbert was forced to move his business from Burnsville to Eagan. In December 2011, he asked the county to reimburse $2,651.34 for a camera surveillance system installed by a contractor. But county officials say their investigation revealed the
surveillance system had never been installed. Luebbert allegedly sent the county an estimate for the work but claimed it was a bill. During a police interview in September 2012, Luebbert, 46, allegedly admitted he never had the contractor install the surveillance system. He said he submitted the claim hoping to get the money and find a company to install the system for a lower price, according to the complaint. Luebbert See CHARGE, 11A

Burnsville resident Jackie Butler came to Minnesota in July 2012 when her company transferred her from Baltimore. Butler and her 9-year-old daughter had settled in until Butler’s contract ended in November, and she was laid off without any income. For the first time in Butler’s life, she was unemployed and unable to provide for her daughter. “I was down and embarrassed. I never thought I would find myself there,” she said. “I have adult children, and as a nurse, I was
able to be a great provider to them.” Uncertain how to find or ask for help, Butler had an unexpected call from “an absolute angel.” Nikki Johnson, a family support worker at Orchard Lake Elementary School in Lakeville, heard about Butler’s unemployment from her daughter.

Fairview Health Services’ long-planned expansion on the Fairview Ridges Hospital site was approved March 19 by the Burnsville City Council. The $60 million expansion, the largest in the hospital’s 29-year history, will add a five-story, 132,800-square-foot clinic and medical office building in back of the hospital, whose main entrance faces north. The building, which isn’t considered a hospital use, will provide sameday surgery and CT/MRI scanning services to patients who would normally visit the hospital. A skyway will connect the new building to the hospital. A four-level, 574-stall parking ramp will also be built. Smaller additions are planned for the hospital itself, including the secondfloor skyway connection
as a three-lane road from Nicollet Avenue to Nicollet Boulevard. The Fairview Ridges expansion follows an expansion approved in 2005 that added fifth and sixth floors to the hospital. The hospital and church are part of the Ridges Campus, a 108acre campus of medical, religious and senior housing facilities. Property owners are Ebenezer Senior Living, Fairview, Park Nicollet, Prince of Peace and the Minnesota Valley YMCA. The campus is bordered by McAndrews Road on the north, Interstate 35E and the Best Western Premier Nicollet Inn on the south, Portland Avenue on the east and Nicollet Avenue on the west.

Jeff Coolman resigns as general manager of ECM-SUN ECM Publishers Inc. President Marge Winkelman has announced the resignation of Jeff Coolman, general manager of ECM-Sun Newspapers, which includes Sun Thisweek and the Dakota County Tribune, effective April 1. Coolman had been the lead manager of 34 weekly newspapers in the south and western suburbs of the Twin Cities for the better part of the last decade. A professional search for Coolmanâ€™s successor will begin immediately. Winkelman will serve as the interim general manager until a replacement is selected. Winkelman, who made the announcement in a March 13 meeting of ECM-Sun Newspaper managers, said ECM Publishers Inc., the parent company of ECM-Sun, was appreciative of Coolmanâ€™s leadership during the past 15 months. ECM Publishers Inc. acquired Sun Newspapers in January of 2012. Winkelman credited Coolman with playing a key role during the transition period to help successfully blend the two companies, which combined feature 51 community newspapers and circulation exceeding 650,000 throughout Minnesota. â€œJeff was key to our company and we truly feel fortunate that he was
Jeff Coolman here during this period to provide such exceptional leadership. We wish he and Debbie (his wife) the very best,â€? said Winkelman. Coolman came to Sun Newspapers in 2001 as vice president and group publisher. He has been in the media industry for the last 20 years. As group publisher and corporate vice president he led the Minnesota group (one of four divisions of American Community Newspapers) through multiple acquisitions/mergers and in 2004 became one of three minority owners. In 2010 he formed an internal agency called the Twin Cities Newspaper Network (TCNN) with the sole purpose of partnering with other community newspapers in the suburbs to attract more national advertising clients. During his time in Minnesota Coolman has served on numer-
ous MNA committees and has served as a volunteer for St. Jude Childrenâ€™s Research Hospital. In addressing managers, Coolman said the timing for his departure just felt right. â€œIt has been an honor to serve as the leader of Sun Newspapers group for the past 12 years. We have seen many transitions over the years and the most recent was the merger with ECM Publishers. The merger has strengthened the Sun Newspaper group, but also further emphasized the importance and need for local community news and advertising. The Minnesota team is one of the best in the business and I wish them and ECM many more successes in the future,â€? Coolman said. As general manager for ECM-Sun Newspapers he has been responsible for advertising, circulation and the overall operations of 34 weekly newspapers. Former Gov. Elmer L. Andersen founded ECM Publishers in 1976. Julian Andersen, Elmerâ€™s son, is the CEO of the company. ECM Publishers also operates 20-plus websites and printing presses in Princeton, Minn., where it prints its own products, and also provides commercial printing for a variety of customers, including the New York Times.

Support ‘no-excuse’ absentee voting legislation, not ‘early voting’ by Kent Kaiser SPECIAL TO SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE
Currently, Minnesota law allows absentee voting supposedly only for people who claim one of the following reasons for needing an absentee ballot: • Absence from their precinct on Election Day • Illness or disability • Service as an election judge in another precinct on Election Day • Religious discipline or religious holiday or observance • Eligible emergency declared by the governor or quarantine declared by the federal or state government. The law to require an excuse to obtain an absentee ballot is unforceable and, therefore, unenforced. No one actually checks to see whether voters meet these eligibility criteria — it would be virtually impossible. Nevertheless, conscientious citizens have not necessarily recognized this fact, and, consequently, the current law probably has deterred some people from voting. Recently, state Rep. Steve Simon, DFL-St. Louis Park, introduced legislation (House File 193) that would remove the requirement to declare one of these excuses to obtain an absentee ballot. This legislation should be passed. There are four pillars of a strong election system: Access, accuracy, privacy, and integrity. Simon’s bill would
strengthen that first pillar while leaving the other pillars unharmed. Simon’s bill would be an excellent reform of our election system. Such is not the case with some other election changes being suggested in the Legislature this year. Many readers have probably heard talk of “early voting” proposals that would allow people for any reason to cast their votes in the weeks prior to Election Day and have their votes counted immediately. But readers should beware: Such schemes have major flaws compared to our current absentee voting system. • For one, early voting systems do not allow voters to change their minds after casting their ballots like the current absentee voting system does. Many more voters change their minds than most people recognize — and not just for dramatic reasons such as a U.S. senate candidate dying in a plane crash a few days before an election, as happened in Minnesota in 2002. Much new information becomes available about candidates in the days just prior to Election Day, and
voters should have the right to change their votes based on new information. An early voting system would not allow this: Voters in such systems are stripped of the right to change their votes, once their votes are cast, because their ballots have already been placed in the ballot box and counted, with no way track them back to the voters. An “early-voting” system would actually weaken the “access” pillar of a strong election system. • Another clear weakness of early voting, if implemented in Minnesota, would be the after-the-fact discovery of some voters’ ineligibility. We already have this problem with our loose Election Day registration procedures (same-day voter registration with no ID requirement). Expanding the looseness to the weeks of voting prior to Election Day would not be an improvement. In our current absentee voting system, it is possible to verify voters’ eligibility before their ballots are counted until Election Day with all the other ballots. An “early-voting” system would also weaken the “integrity” pillar of a strong election system. Consequently, a superior legislative reform would be simply to change the law to allow absentee voting without an excuse. Many Minnesota voters already vote by “in-person” absentee ballot at a local election office, which is easier for many
people than by-mail absentee voting and provides every bit of the ease of access that “early voting” does but also retains the integrity of our current system. We often hear that people do not know about the “in-person” absentee ballot option or about the re-voting benefit that the current absentee ballot system provides to people who change their minds before Election Day. This simply suggests that state officials should do a better job at publicizing voters’ options — not that we should change and weaken the whole system. One small tweak to our current absentee ballot system would increase the voters’ right to ballot access and preserve their right to election integrity and thus represents a significant reform to our election system — that is Simon’s bill. Readers should call their legislators and the governor to ask them to support Simon’s bill.

A book about trusting teachers draws praise from educators, activists by Joe Nathan Should we “trust teachers” much more than we do now? A recently published, intriguing, important book urges, “Yes.” The book “Trusting Teachers with School Success” is important in part because it has been endorsed by a variety of educators and education activists, many of whom strongly disagree with each other about other issues such as testing, charter public schools and virtual schools. Why did a variety of people recommend the book? First, because the authors ask, “What if trusting teachers, and not controlling them, is the key to school success?” The authors believe that teachers should have the option to organize as doctors and attorneys sometimes do. This puts teachers truly in charge. The book offers 11 examples from seven states, from Connecticut to California along with Minnesota and Wisconsin. Some attorneys and physicians organize themselves into partnerships. They decide how their clinics or law firms will

operate (including associates’ pay and how they will be evaluated). They hire (and can fire) people to help with the “business side” of operations. I’ve visited some schools cited in the book, including the Minnesota New Country School in Henderson, Minn. and Avalon, in St. Paul. Both schools attract a variety of students. Both help some students who had not succeeded in traditional schools graduate and go on to some form of two- or four-year higher education. Both use an array of methods, not just standardized tests, to measure and report student progress. Avalon, New Country and the nine other schools, both district and charter, described in the book allow teachers to determine the curriculum, budget allocations, assessment methods, staff evalua-
tion, and in some cases pay and working conditions. This is real teacher “empowerment.” The authors recommend that families be allowed to choose these schools, and say that this approach won’t always work. For example, the Milwaukee Federation of Teachers and Milwaukee District helped create more than one dozen schools on this model. Some thrived, others did not. A recent MetLife Foundation survey of teachers around the country found growing percentages of teachers are dissatisfied with their jobs. While education journalist and activist Andy Rotherham pointed out that over the last 25 years, MetLife has used different questions to compare teachers’ attitudes, survey officials stress that answers to identical questions show dissatisfaction is growing. Empowering educators can be one important way to serve students and enrich teachers’ lives. The book’s authors include Amy Junge, formerly a public school teacher; Kim Farris-Berg, an education policy researcher; and Edward Dirkswager, a retired health care administrator.
People who’ve endorsed the book include union leaders, including Dennis Van Roekel, president of the National Education Association; Lynn Nordgren, president of the Minneapolis Federation of Teachers; Adam Urbanski, president of the Rochester, N.Y., Federation of Teachers; Stanford professor Linda Darling-Hammond and educator Deborah Meier, all of whom are skeptical about the charter idea. Tom Vander Ark, formerly of the Gates Foundation, Mike Petrelli of the Fordham Institute and Dee Thomas, all of whom support the charter idea, also praised the book. As America searches for solutions, it’s great to find strategies supported by thoughtful people who often disagree. That makes “Trusting Teachers with School Success” a book with important, intriguing ideas. Joe Nathan, formerly a public school teacher and administrator, directs the Center for School Change.

to reduce the projected $1.1 billion deficit for the next biennium. This was the “real” reason for the recently announced reduction of the projected budget to $627 million. A hearty congratulations for a job well done is in order for the Republican-led Legislature of 2011-2012. At the start of that legislative session they were faced with
a $5 billion to $6 billion deficit. With good fiscal policy and without raising taxes they were able to turn that deficit around to a surplus. And the sky did not fall. They also tried to speed the school shift payback (ref. S.F. 0209), but this and related House bill were vetoed by Gov. Mark Dayton. It will be interesting to
see if the current Democratic-led Legislature is able to match this performance or if additional taxes will be necessary to avoid another round of deficit spending. The challenge is there and the voters are watching. AL KRANZ Burnsville

Halverson’s bill would help the homeless Standing room only at discussion on two bills
by Howard Lestrud SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE
During Homeless Day on the Hill at the State Capitol on Thursday, March 7, hundreds assembled to carry their message that homelessness negatively affects thousands of children and adults in Minnesota. Many crowded into a small committee room in the State Office Building to hear testimony on two pieces of homeless legislation. Those in attendance represented major statewide homeless and housing organizations and were joined by local units of government and school districts that have recognized the increased costs to them due to homelessness, said Liz Kuoppala, Minnesota Coalition for the Homeless. She said visitors to the Capitol came from Rochester, Worthington, Moorhead, Bemidji and from the metro, suburban and urban areas of the state, all affected by homelessness. Two bills, House File 937 and House File 698 were introduced to the House Health and Human Services Finance Committee. They were both laid over to the Omnibus Finance Bill. Prior to hearing the bills, committee chairman Thomas Huntley, DFL-Duluth, said attempts were made to find space for attendees to hear the testimony in another
room. That attempt failed, and Huntley urged attendees to refrain from applause and to find a place to be seated. Many were seated or stood in aisles of the committee room. Rep. Laurie Halverson, DFL-Eagan, introduced H.F. 698, titled the Homeless Youth Act. This bill modifies the Runaway and Homeless Youth Act to identify mission goals, modify uses of funds, appropriate additional funding for the program and remove a mandated report. The legislation appropriates $8 million for the Homeless Youth Act from the general fund to the Department of Human Services for fiscal years 2014-15. The bill also repeals required development of a report on homeless and runaway youth as well as coordination of services funded under the Homeless Youth Act. “The Homeless Youth Act goes a long ways to solving youth homelessness,” Halverson said. Supporting a need for homeless youth and housing programs, Derek Reger, 19, of Brainerd, said he is still on the road to recovery and has been sober for two years. He plans to graduate in May and says he has not missed a day of school this year. Jodi Harpstead, CEO for Lutheran Social Service of Minnesota, said youth services provide the highest return on an investment. These youths later become contribut-
ing adults of our state, she said. Halverson said her bill has strong bipartisan support and also state support. Second-term lawmaker Rena Moran, DFL-St. Paul, said she believes there is a “huge need” for shelters, for transitional housing and for affordable housing. She praised Twin Cities activist Mary Jo Copeland for her work with the homeless. “Government does have a place in people’s lives to create a stronger community, state and world,” Moran said. Neeka Russel, youth expert from the metro area, testified that she “wants to make sure” that people like her have resources to match their paths in life. “We need to be part of the solution,” committee member, Rep. Peter Fischer, DFL-Maplewood, said.
Another bill Rep. Carolyn Laine, DFL-Columbia Heights, introduced H.F. 937 on appropriations for homeless services, transitional housing and emergency services. The bill appropriates money for long-term homeless supportive services, housing and services for homeless youth, transitional housing programs and emergency services grants. According to a bill overview, homeless programs support drop-in centers, shelters and transitional housing programs
operated by community action agencies, tribal governments and other nonprofit organizations to prevent homelessness and to provide safe shelter and to increase the ability of homeless families and individuals to secure and maintain stable, independent housing and economic self-reliance. Laine, the bill’s sponsor, said this has been a 6 percent increase of those living in shelters and said child homelessness has increased by 46 percent. She said that nearly half of the homeless in Minnesota are 21 years of age or younger. Contributing to those increases are that rental housing costs are higher, Laine said, and more than half of many residents’ incomes are going for rent. The spiral of home foreclosures and rental demand have caused a need for a continuum of longterm supportive services and transitional housing, Laine said. Nancy Cashman of the Center City Housing (Transitional Housing Program) told of instances where people are staying in laundromats or in skyways. She said that homelessness is most often caused by domestic violence. Of the homeless, Cashman said 50 percent or more have been in correctional facilities and 100 percent are experiencing some type of trauma. Committee member Glen Gruenhagen, R-St. Paul, said he was saddened to see how many people
Rep. Laurie Halverson, DFL-Eagan, has authored House File 698, the Homeless Youth Act. She spoke about the bill as did her witnesses, Jodi Harpstead, Neeka Russel and Derek Reger. (Photo by Howard Lestrud) are in stress today. He told of working 13 years in a jail ministry. Acknowledging the value of government programs, Gruenhagen said they sometimes make things worse rather than better. Witness Rich Hooks Wayman of Health Connection said government is part of the solution for homelessness. Committee member Tina Liebling, DFL-St. Paul, praised those in attendance, saying “you are here because you care about other people and want to strengthen our communities.” Laine’s legislation has appropriations for the following: • $9.95 million in each year of the 2014-15 bien-
nium from the general fund for long-term homeless supportive services • $5.95 million in each year of the 2014-15 biennium from the general fund for transitional housing programs • Appropriates $850,000 in each year of the 2014-15 biennium for emergency services grants • Appropriates $4 million in each year of the 2014-15 biennium to provide housing and services to homeless youth under the Runaway and Homeless Youth Act Howard Lestrud can be reached at email@example.com.
Detainee allegedly scuffles with, injures Burnsville cop A man described by Burnsville police as an uncooperative detainee who scuffled with an officer has been charged with fourthdegree assault, a felony, and obstructing the legal process, a misdemeanor. Police responded to a March 8 report that a man with a gun was walking toward the Days Inn near
County Road 42 and Interstate 35E. They found a man matching his description, 37-year-old Nathan Lee Ronning of Willmar, by a vehicle near the hotel. Believing he was armed, officers asked Ronning to put his hands up, face away and walk backwards, the criminal complaint said. They told Ronning he’d
been reported as carrying a gun and warned they would tase him if he didn’t cooperate. He ignored officers’ orders, continually looking back, talking, dropping his hands to his waist and refusing to go to the ground. Ronning was tased but continued to ignore demands and started to get up. An officer delivered a
“stun kick” to his hip to keep him down, the complaint said. Ronning was searched, and no weapons were found. Arrested for obstruction of justice, Ronning yelled at and repeatedly insulted the transporting officer, calling him “punk,” “pig” and “nigger,” the complaint said.
As the officer attempted to escort him into the jail, he repeatedly walked away. After the officer grabbed Ronning’s arms, Ronning stuck out his leg against the jail door and used it as leverage to “lunge back” at the officer, causing the officer to fall with Ronning falling on top of him. The officer suffered bruising on his right wrist,
right thigh and right calf, as well as scrapes on his left forearm, right wrist and chin, the complaint said. “The officer’s empty holster was also damaged,” it said. — John Gessner

District may develop ‘educational opportunity’ policy Review prompted by recent student-staff conference by Laura Adelmann SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE
summer camps & youth golf lessons call 763.559.6700 ThreeRiversParks.org
Better water flows from better thinking
Lakeville School District Superintendent Lisa Snyder said she expects a new educational opportunity policy will be brought before the School Board to consider before next school year. “I’d like to see it for sure in place by next fall,” Snyder said. The district is systematically updating all its polices this year, but Snyder said consideration regarding the need for a new policy addressing “educational opportunities” came to light recently when staff requested School Board approval for some students and staff to attend the February Black, Brown and College Bound conference in Tampa, Fla. under the district’s Extended Field Trip policy. The request was pulled for discussion from the consent agenda, usually passed in one motion, by School Board Member Jim Skelly at the Feb. 12 meeting because the request did not follow the district’s Extended Field Trip policy in terms of
time, process and finances. Against the Extended Field Trip policy, a parental notification meeting was held before the trip was approved by the School Board, the request came to the board seven days before departure instead of the 30-day minimum, and students did not pay their own way. The district funded the trip through its approximate $1.1 million in Integration and Equity funding, which is 70 percent funded through the state and 30 percent through a district levy. School Board members who approved the request that passed on a 4-1 vote said it was justified in varying from district policies since the conference aimed to motivate students to pursue post-secondary education, leadership opportunities and mentor younger students. In an interview, Snyder said the situation has highlighted the need for a new policy that is different from the Extended Field Trip policy that “really addresses these types of educational opportunities that are paid for by grants
or special funding for specialized projects.” “I would say it needs to be a priority, especially if Integration and Equity funding continues, which it looks like it is going to at some level,” Snyder said. Costs for seven students and three staff members to attend the Florida conference were $3,170 more than originally estimated, according to Lakeville School District records. As is the case with other Extended Field Trip requests, the cost changed after it received Lakeville School Board approval. Costs for travel, lodging and food were originally estimated at $12,519 for six students and three staff. The final total included seven students and was $15,690, according to district records. The increase was primarily due to the additional student being invited to attend and higher-thananticipated airline fees. Cynthia Hays, Lakeville Schools Educational Equity and Excellence coordinator, said the number of students increased because the district wanted to ensure students from
every high school, including the Alternative Learning Center, could attend. Snyder said the district’s Extended Field Trip policy will also need to be reviewed for possible updates, possibly changing the 30-day notice requirement. In the 2011-12 and 2012-13 school years, there have been 84 extended field trip requests and 37 of them did not meet the 30-day notice requirement, Lakeville Schools Communications Director Linda Swanson said. “To me, that tells me the policy’s not working because there were just so many,” School Board Chair Roz Peterson said. Swanson said the recent issue highlighted the need for a new educational opportunities policy. “Some field trips are educational opportunities,” Swanson said. “And those need to be addressed in a different fashion. We need to have policies in place so we can do that differently.” Laura Adelmann is at laura. email@example.com.
Eagan affordable housing project moves forward Construction on Riverview Ridge Townhomes is expected to begin this spring by Jessica Harper SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Plans to build an affordable housing development in Eagan are moving forward. The Eagan City Council on March 19 approved preliminary plans to build a 27-unit affordable hous-
ing development called Riverview Ridge Townhomes at Highway 13 and Letendre Street. The project is an expansion of the Dakota County Community Development Agency’s Family Townhome Project, which is designed for moderateincome families with children under age 18. “I think we will have a very nice development,” said Mark Ulfers, executive director of the CDA. Riverview included 28 units when it was first proposed in December, but the CDA cut it back to 27 units to address access and open space concerns. Due to concerns expressed by the property’s neighbors, roads within the development will not connect to
Letendre Street, which is a private drive. CDA officials added a basketball court, and walking and bike paths to address council concerns. Though they were pleased with the revisions, council members said they hope to see mass transit added to the site. The CDA currently operates 19 rental townhome complexes under the program, which includes two developments in Eagan. A third is set to open in the summer of 2013. There are 1,100 families waiting to obtain workforce housing in Eagan, said Kari Gill, deputy executive director of the CDA. Residents must meet income guidelines, provide
good landlord and credit references and pass a criminal background check. The 4.3-acre property considered for the project currently consists of the former Richfield Blacktop site and two undeveloped lots to the north. On Tuesday, the council also approved a comprehensive guide amendment and a proposal to rezone the property as planned development. Construction on the development is expected to begin this spring and be completed by summer 2014. Jessica Harper is at jessica. firstname.lastname@example.org or facebook.com/sunthisweek.

The Burnsville City Council is rethinking its plan to begin council meetings and work sessions at 5:30 p.m. instead of the current 6:30. Hoping to make meetings more convenient for citizens and for people with business before the council, members agreed on the change at their March 12 work session. But before a scheduled vote on March 19, resident Tom Taylor asked the
council to reconsider. Starting council meetings during dinnertime would disrupt people’s routines and impede participation, said Taylor, who chairs the board of the Fire Muster, Burnsville’s annual community festival. The council decided on the change after a 5 p.m. council start for a February meeting was well received by people with business on the agenda. The early start was needed to establish a quorum.
Also, officials say open houses for road projects are better attended when they’re early. But after Taylor spoke, the council voted to table the matter for two weeks. Mayor Elizabeth Kautz asked for public input via the city website. Council meetings have started at 6:30 p.m. for years, she said. At one time, they started at 7 p.m. John Gessner can be reached at (952) 846-2031 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

SUN THISWEEK - Burnsville - Eagan March 22, 2013 7A
AUTHOR, from 1A through the circulatory system. â€œI realized then that I was a writer,â€? he said. Meserowâ€™s passion didnâ€™t flourish until much later in life. He followed his fatherâ€™s footsteps at age 18 by joining the U.S. Air Force. During his service, Meserow graduated from the University of Hawaii in 1967 with a bachelorâ€™s degree in political science. In 1969, Meserow served in the Vietnam War as an air crewman and received the Distinguished Flying Cross and Air Medal. Meserow left the military after five years with the title of captain. He continued his pursuit of higher education and graduated from the University of Oregon in 1974 with a masterâ€™s in business communication. Shortly after finishing graduate school, Meserow met his wife, Sue, and moved to Australia where he worked as the director of parks and recreation for a suburb of Melbourne. While there, the couple adOFFICER, from 1A as in the case of Country Village Apartments. Anselment was part of the cross-departmental city team that spent hundreds of hours in 2011 and 2012 responding to decrepit conditions at the west Burnsville complex. After many missed repair deadlines, the complex has been rehabilitated, relicensed and renamed Burnsville Pointe Apartments. The city strengthened its rentalhousing ordinance to require inspections of each unit in Burnsville every three years, and landlords are being charged fees to pay the new inspectors. â€œFor us it was very frustrating to deal with a situation that was so, what we called, horrendous,â€? Anselment said. â€œThe standard of living was just
opted their two sons, who are now grown. Eight years later, the couple decided to return to the United States and settle in Eagan due to its reputable education system and economic opportunities. Meserow had dreamed of writing a book for years, but it was always put on the back burner. By 1998, he decided he would finally do it. His first completed book was never published. â€œIt wasnâ€™t very good,â€? he said. â€œBut I knew I could do it.â€? By 2006, Meserow published is first novel, â€œThe Sword of Mohammed,â€? which is a fictional post apocalyptic book. Two years later, he released his second novel, â€œTrouble in the House of Jacob,â€? a apocalyptic novel that depicts the end of times in accord with the Biblical version. The 664-page novel took Meserow 10 years to complete. Thereafter, he released six more novels, two novelettes, one biography and numerous short stories. When heâ€™s not working on novels, Meserow works
as an independent Internet consultant. Shortly after releasing â€œMinnesota: The Great State,â€? Meserow published a book called â€œThe Son of Gods,â€? a fiction novel about human-demon hybrids who wreak havoc on Duluth. Meserow said he drew inspiration from a Biblical verse that describes such beings during ancient times. Meserow is already working on another novel called â€œCastles of the Heart,â€? which is about a wealthy woman who must face her difficult past. Meserowâ€™s advice to aspiring authors is to be serious about the craft but also have fun with it. â€œItâ€™s not an easy thing to do,â€? he said. â€œItâ€™s a labor of love.â€? All of Meserowâ€™s books are available in print and as ebooks at amazon.com and barnesandnoble.com. For more information on Meserow and his books, visit marathonbooksonline.com.
disgusting, quite honestly. You had water damage and mold and dead animals in apartments.â€? It was a â€œstressful time for both sides,â€? said Anselment, who continues to maintain a relationship with the manager of the Lindahl Properties-owned complex, which he said is refilling slowly with tenants after losing its rental license last year. â€œAn aging city needs to be kept up, and we really didnâ€™t have the resources until now,â€? he said. Anselment grew up in Burnsville and graduated in 1995 from Apple Valley High School. He joined the department in 1999 and has worked as a patrol officer, canine handler and field training officer. Joining the Community Resource Unit was a welcome chance to work across city departments,
said Anselment, whose wife, Danielle, is an Eagan police sergeant and a past member of that departmentâ€™s multifamily-housing unit. Anselmentâ€™s personality is a â€œhuge assetâ€? in his position, Burnsville police Sgt. Chris Wicklund, who heads the Community Resource Unit, wrote in a recent job evaluation. â€œI trust Shaun in his everyday actions. He sees what needs to be done and will do it.â€? Anselment has become a â€œgo-to guyâ€? for the Dakota County Drug Task Force, according to Wicklund. Apartment managers often send tips his way about potential drug activity, Anselment said. â€œIâ€™ll pass that information on via email or phone

Hot goalie cools off the Dakota United at state Hawks are runner-up in PI Division by Mike Shaughnessy SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE
Considering that Dakota United had averaged more than 11 goals in its previous 15 games, the last thing the Hawks could have imagined was that they would be shut out in the state final. But that’s what happened as Robbinsdale/ Hopkins/Mound Westonka goalie Charlie Wittmer stoned the Hawks, making 29 saves as the Robins won 5-0 in the PI Division championship game Saturday at Bloomington Jefferson High School. “He won the game for them,” Dakota United coach Brett Sadek said. “I think we outshot them by quite a bit and we had some really good scoring opportunities.” Robbinsdale/Hopkins/ Mound Westonka won the state championship for the third year in a row and fourth time in the last five years. Dakota United, which has finished second at state the last two years, finished 14-2. Both losses

Blazing Cats runner-up at CI state tournament Best finish ever for adapted hockey team by Andy Rogers SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE
The Burnsville/Farmington/Lakeville CI (cognitive impaired) adapted floor hockey team had its best-ever finish at the state tournament last weekend bringing home the second-place trophy. The Blazing Cats lost to North Suburban 7-6 in the state championship on Saturday at Bloomington Jefferson. The team held the lead going into the final period, but North Suburban surged back with five goals in the third to win. Brendan Wong and Steve Friday each had two goals and an assist while goalie Terry Kalm had 24 saves. The Blazing Cats entered the tournament as the No. 3 seed from the south with a 9-2 record and went on to defeat two higher-seeded teams to reach the finals. In the first round, the Blazing Cats defeated No. 2 north seed Mounds View/ Irondale/Roseville 10-6. The Blazing Cats
were behind 5-4 after two periods, and fired six successful shots in the final period. Cody Bali had four goals and Michael Burns had two. Kalm had 19 saves. The victory put the Blazing Cats in the state semifinal match on Saturday against No. 1 south seed New Prague/TCU/ LeSueur-Henderson, which was previously undefeated with a 12-0 record. The teams traded leads, but it was the Blazing Cats who were ahead by the end. Wong scored the game-winner with 46 seconds remaining. Steve Friday added four goals in the victory. The Blazing Cats avenged a 12-6 loss to New Prague/TCU/ LeSueur-Henderson on Feb. 11. The only other loss for the Blazing Cats this season came in overtime against Dakota United in January. The team was on a five-game winning streak leading up to the tournament outscoring teams 54-9.

After tough loss, Lightning rebounds for third place by Mike Shaughnessy
Girls basketball team has chance to send off its seniors
SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE
Third-place games are nobody’s favorite. Some might argue that they shouldn’t even exist. Once your shot to win a championship is gone, why bother playing another game? Here’s one reason – with 11 seconds remaining and Eastview holding a safe lead in the Class 4A state girls basketball third-place game, Lightning coach Melissa Guebert called timeout so she could send out her five seniors, ensuring they would finish their high school careers together, on the court. “I had to hold the tears in, I was so emotional,” senior captain Tyra Johnson said. “I was so happy we could be out there for the last time together.” Of the five seniors, Johnson, Mikaela Wilson and Hannah Ruszczyk are captains. Christie Seaberg is a reserve and Abby Lee played little after battling the effects of mononucleosis. They had their last moments on the court as teammates on Saturday as Eastview closed out a 5843 victory over Osseo. Two days earlier, Eastview was doomed by 25 percent shooting in a 4339 semifinal loss to South Suburban Conference rival Bloomington Kennedy at the Target Center. Hopkins beat Kennedy 68-45 on Saturday night for its third consecutive Class 4A championship. After the loss to Kennedy, “the players were very upset, and I think I felt like they did,” Gue-

Eagles playing for a place in history Apple Valley went to state seeking school’s first boys hoops title by Mike Shaughnessy SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE
Apple Valley has been one of the state’s most successful high school athletic programs since opening in 1976. The school has 55 state championships, third most in Minnesota history. It doesn’t have one for boys basketball yet. “We have a big poster in our locker room that shows the number of state titles we’ve won, and it’s blank,” senior guard Dustin Fronk said Monday, two days before the Eagles played in the state Class 4A quarterfinals. As they prepared for the school’s first state appearance since 2009, the Eagles were aware of the history. They want to make history. But they don’t want to dwell on history. “It’s in the back of our minds, but the biggest thing is we want to get it done for ourselves and our city,” senior guard Harry Sonie said. For perhaps the first time in six state tournament appearances, Apple Valley went in as the favorite. The Eagles were 28-1 and had a 27-game winning streak when they took the floor Wednesday against Brainerd in the quarterfinal round. They are ranked No. 1 in the state and seeded No. 1 in the state tournament. But the only team to beat them this season, Park Center, was in the other half of the state tournament bracket. HAWKS, from 8A another run at the state championship next year as only two of its players – forward Lantz Estep and goalie Marcus Urban – are seniors. “We had three or four young guys who had to be shown the ropes at the beginning of the season, but by the end of the year they really came on,” Sadek said. “With Grayson, our biggest problem is managing his energy level because he plays a lot. We don’t want to put handcuffs on him, but he uses a lot of energy. “Jaayson really understands the game well. He and Grayson are right up there with any playBLAZING CATS, from 8A Burns, Wong and Friday were named to the 2013 CI Division Adapted Floor Hockey All-Tournament Team. The team won the consolation title last year and in 2009. In 2010, the team placed fourth and it was the consolation runner-up in 2007.
The Eagles routed Rosemount 94-64 in the Section 3 championship game Friday night at Burnsville High School. Apple Valley outscored its three section opponents by 115 points. Rosemount, which pulled two upsets to reach the section final, kept it relatively close in the first half before being overwhelmed in the second half, when Apple Valley scored 59 points. “Rosemount has good guard play, so I think they wanted more of an uptempo game,” Fronk said. “But it’s the section final, so you have to be ready for anything.” The Eagles had no problem mustering the enthusiasm to celebrate a section championship even though the state title has been their goal since before the season began. “It’s fun to celebrate with our parents and the fans who have always been there,” Fronk said. “But we know we have more to do. We have another week to reach our final goal.” One of the noteworthy things about the Eagles’ season is they have played consistently well. They have had few letdowns. Even in their loss to Park Center in early December, it took a last-second basket to beat them. “This is a group with a lot of players who have been with us two or three years,” coach Zach Goring said. “For Tyus (Jones, the Eagles’ star junior guard), this is his er in this tournament. I wouldn’t trade them for anybody.” Nicolay and Meyer were named to the alltournament team, as was defender Liz Kimmes.

We’ve spent more time in practice just playing than we have in any other year.” The Eagles also are tough to defend, particularly when they can play at a fast tempo.

Tommy Petersen began his wrestling career as an elementary youth wrestler alongside his brother Zane. Tommy was always up for a challenge and despite his older brother’s success; Tommy was determined to make a name for himself. Tommy’s hard work and determination as a young youth/middle school wrestler paid off. As a freshman Tommy found himself In the Varsity lineup and quickly began to show how dedicated he had been. Success didn’t come without some disappointments, but Tommy kept persevering through it all and eventually proved that he was one of the best at what he did. Before starting his junior season, Tommy made it clear that he wanted to win a State Championship and win he did! He only lost once his junior season, which was to the number 2 ranked high school wrestler at his weight class. He achieved his goal of winning a state championship and then went on to repeat that same feat this season to become Lakeville’s first 2-time state wrestling champion in history. He lost one match in the last 2 seasons, and has a winning streak of 71-1. In addition to his success in the winner’s circle, Tommy also holds the record for most takedowns in a single season (237).

tiny of the PAC, whose construction many citizens opposed as too costly, council members insisted on having a chance to interview the companies, in addition to the interviews already done by the RFP committee. The council could decide on April 16 to schedule interviews, possibly in a joint session on April 23 with the Performing Arts Center Advisory Commission. Council Member Dan Kealey said he wants the benefit of having questioned the applicants before taking a vote heâ€™ll have to defend later. â€œThis is a $20 million facility,â€? Kealey said at the councilâ€™s March 12 work session, where he raised the interview topic. â€œThis is a major decision in the life of that facility. It was a very controversial facility to build.â€? â€œIt was controversial,â€? Sherry said at the work session. â€œWe donâ€™t want to inflame any more controversy. So I think we want to make it clear weâ€™re being very deliberate about this and weâ€™re very, very careful about it.â€? The public wonâ€™t, how-
ever, get to see copies of the companiesâ€™ submittals before the council votes, City Attorney Joel Jamnik said. State law classifies them as private, and they canâ€™t be released until after the vote, he told the council. Under the request-forproposals process, the council isnâ€™t obligated to choose the least expensive proposal. â€œThis is a request for proposals, not a request for bids,â€? Johnston said in an interview. â€œSo thereâ€™s a fair amount of consideration you can bring into the process.â€? The PAC suffered steep losses in its first two years but rebounded to hit preopening forecasts of annual operating losses of $350,000 or less. Operating losses totaled $285,747 in 2012, compared with $304,853 in 2011, the city reported. Total operating expenses were $1.23 million last year, and nonoperating expenses were $699,678, according to the city. John Gessner can be reached at (952) 846-2031 or email email@example.com.

FOOD, from 1A the organizationâ€™s mission to provide holistic help to families in need. â€œTo me it was a godsend. They happened into my life in a time when there was a serious need, and they were there,â€? she said. The first time Butler went to the Feed My Sheep Food Shelf at Messiah Lutheran Church in Lakeville, she said, â€œI was very embarrassed that I was actually going to accept help.â€? That feeling quickly changed when the first woman she saw gave her a big hug. â€œNever at any point did anyone I interact with at 360 or Messiah make me feel bad about it. Everyone I have come in contact with has helped me feel positive and made me feel so supported,â€? she said. Butlerâ€™s situation is not uncommon at 360 Communities. While the economy is on the upswing, the five local food shelves connected with 360 Communities have seen an 18 percent increase in visits last year. For the first fiscal quarter year over year CHARGE, from 1A allegedly admitted he ultimately installed the system himself for $600 and didnâ€™t submit a revised claim. He told police he was frustrated that the county had denied so many of his previous claims and said that he was in a lot of debt due to the relocation. Luebbert, who owns Zest Bar and Grille in Ea-

when more than 300 food shelves across the state, including 360 Communities, launch a food drive campaign to fill shelves when food runs short. More than 50 businesses, in addition to churches, schools and other organizations in the community, have pledged to help 360 Communities meet its goal to raise $60,000 and 70,000 pounds of food in March. That amount will help feed 11,300 people for one week. When this paper went to press, 360 Communities had raised a total of $17,828 and 24,722 pounds of food with one more week left. At the beginning of the month, the Burnsville Family Resource Center had empty shelves. Tony Compton, 360 Communitiesâ€™ marketing and communications coordinator, put a photo on Facebook, and the photo was passed around, filling the shelves within a matter of days. â€œWe have a community that really sees what their stake is in making sure that people are supported,â€? Compton said. Without these contributions and the help of 1,125
volunteers, he said, 360 Communities could not serve all the people it does. â€œFood is easy for people to get excited about because it is tangible, and it is the most basic of needs,â€? Rycher said. â€œI could do a food drive in my business or community; but when you bring food or financial dollars to 360 Communities, it goes far beyond the need for food.â€? The organization also provides support for women in abusive situations and educational support for families through programs like Partners in Success, among other resources. After relying on a food shelf for a few months, Butler just accepted a new job. She hopes to volunteer with 360 Communities and give back to the people who gave her so much. At 4-8 p.m. on Tuesday, March 26, Burnsville Costco will open its doors to non-members to buy food donations for 360 Communities.
Luebbert owes the company $8,375.04 for rent, insurance and an electric bill, among other debts. In the suit, DeSoto claims Luebbert and his company, Super Mercado Olmeca, failed to pay $5,202.68 in rent, $179.57 in insurance, and $225.67 in electric bills between November 2012 and January 2013. Luebbert moved the grocery store and deli to
DeSotoâ€™s property at 14117 Irving Ave. S. in Burnsville after being forced in 2010 to vacate Valley Ridge Shopping Center in Burnsville to make way for a housing project. The owner of the center sold the property to the Dakota County Community Development Agency, which turned the property into a senior housing complex.
Luebbert came under fire in November 2010 by Burnsville city officials for problems at his night club, VIP Olmeca Events, which was next door to the grocery store. Residents complained at the time about music volumes and people loitering in the parking lot after closing. One month after DeSoto sued Luebbert, Great Southern Bank, a Mis-
souri-based lender, filed a lawsuit claiming Luebbert owed $123,638.35 for defaulting on a business loan. If convicted of the alleged theft, Luebbert could face up to five years in prison.

atre Circle is bringing this you-decide-whothe-killer-is experience to the stage of the Burnsville Performing Arts Center. Directed by Matt McNabb, the production features an 11-piece live orchestra and a cast of 15 actors. The run of the show March 22-April 7 includes a special promotion on March 28, which is “Pay What You Can” night, with audience members setting their own price for a ticket. That evening’s performance will be followed by a discussion with the “Drood” cast and crew. Audio description for visually impaired theater-goers will be offered March 24, and ASL interpretation will accompany the show on March 29. Tickets range from $17 to $20 and are available in person at the Performing Arts Center’s box office and through Ticketmaster online or (800) 982-2787. More about the production is at www.chameleontheatre.org.
In 1870, Charles Dickens died before completing his novel “The Mystery of Edwin Drood.” Since then, writers have attempted to supply a conclusion to the story, including the identity of the title character’s killer. Over the years many writers sought to simply tie up all the loose ends of the Dickens book – such as the Vermont author Thomas James, who in 1873 published a version of “Drood” that he said had been psychically “channeled” from the ghost of Dickens. But in the mid-1980s the composer and playwright Rupert Holmes did something novel with the “Drood” material: He turned it into a musical comedy. And because Dickens left the story with no ending, Holmes added a twist for theater-goers, writing as many solutions to the murder mystery as possible, and then having the audience decide by a vote which of the characters is the killer. Email Andrew Miller at Now, Burnsville- andrew.miller@ecm-inc.
