Lockheed retail plans get mixed reviews Residents provided feedback March 14 during community meeting by Jessica Harper Thisweek Newspapers

Plans to convert Lockheed Martin in Eagan into a retail complex received mixed reviews this week. Eagan residents were divided when expressing their views and concerns March 14 during a meeting with CSM Eagan, a subsidiary of CSM Corp. of Minneapolis, which intends to redevelop the site on Pilot Knob Road.

Some residents were excited about the plans, which would create large and small retail spaces, and freestanding restaurants on the 51-acre site. “I’m so happy that it’s not a large strip mall. I can’t stand strip malls,” said Laura Treaeger, a Lockheed Martin employee. Plans include 2.6 miles of walkable paths within the site. Tom Palmquist, vice president of commercial

development for CSM, said the project, dubbed Central Park Commons, will be similar to Shops on Arbor Lake in Maple Grove and Woodbury Lakes in Woodbury, both of which have urban, walkable designs. CSM also intends to complement the site with mass transit options. Treaeger, who intends to remain in Eagan after Lockheed moves, said she See Lockheed, 5A

City Hall, neither Terry McCall of Burnsville nor Roz Peterson of Lakeville came close to mustering the 60 percent delegate count needed to secure endorsement.

The party will try again, calling an endorsing convention to be held sometime in the next 30 days, said Ayrlahn Johnson of Burnsville, who was elected chair of Senate District 56 Republicans on Saturday. In interviews Monday, Peterson said she’d be the more electable candidate in November, while McCall stressed his GOP activism and alliance with the party’s conservative grass roots. “The sense of the conSee GOP, 5A

Budding Eagan artist receives international attention Thomas Lake fifth-grader to compete in global art contest by Jessica Harper Thisweek Newspapers

The artistic talent of 11-year-old Sky Waters has received more attention in recent years than that of many artists twice his age. The Eagan resident’s work has won several local awards and is even on display at a well-known cultural center. Now, the Thomas Lake Elementary fifth-grader has received international attention. A Waters painting, “Silent Flight,” will be judged next month in the 2012 International Aviation Art Contest in Lucerne, Switzerland, after winning third place in the contest’s national 10- to 13-year-old category. “It’s really cool to be in the internationals,” Waters said. Waters’ piece previously earned first place in the contest’s Minnesota division, which consisted of 750 entries. The colorful painting depicts several hot air balloons, a parachuter and a jet plane soaring over the earth. Waters used both

Mayor Mike Maguire painted a rosy picture of Eagan’s future during his State of the City address Thursday. “In the clear light of the here and the now, the state of our city is strong,” Maguire said. The Eagan leader gave his address March 15 to the Dakota County Chamber of Commerce. Maguire’s speech was also televised on Eagan public

access. Pointing to recent developments, Maguire said he is confident Eagan’s economy will continue to grow and thrive. “Eagan has been a regional jobs leader for the past decade,” he said. In the past 10 years, the city’s total number of jobs increased 15 percent, while jobs in similar cities such as Eden Prairie and Plymouth have dropped. Technology jobs rose 15 percent over the same period of time, while the Twin Cities lost 5.7 percent of jobs. Several major employers have expanded within or moved to Eagan over the past year, Maguire noted. Prime Therapeutics and

� �����

Ecolab were among a handful of companies to expand within the city in recent months. Others moved their operations into the city, including Penn.-based Diversified Information Technologies, which included Eagan in its Midwest expansion plans last February. The city of Eagan has also played a role in spurring growth by investing in a study, funded by non-tax dollars, that attracted a privately funded data hub to Eagan, Maguire said. “Again, the city is not getting in the provider business but we’re making it easier for others to serve you,” he said. The city has also completed several projects of its own thanks to partnerships with

state, county and private agencies, Maguire said. Duckwood Overpass and Northwoods Parkway bridge are among the examples Maguire pointed to as much needed improvement projects that were brought about by a partnership between the city and state agencies. Maguire emphasized that although city officials are committed to investing in Eagan, they also strive to remain fiscally prudent. “Whenever possible we believe in pay-as-you-go and knowing not just what you’re paying for, but how,” he said. In many instances, Eagan has managed to spend less on See Eagan, 8A

Senators tight-lipped over Brodkorb accusations Eagan resident, former staffer threatens to sue Senate majority by T.W. Budig & Jessica Harper Thisweek Newspapers

Senate Republican leaders were tight lipped on Friday, March 16, about the flareup this week between attorneys for former Senate Republican communications director Michael Brodkorb and Senate officials concerning Brodkorb’s allegation that he was wrongfully fired from the Senate. Brodkorb, through his attorneys, revealed that he had an intimate relationship with former senate majority leader Amy Koch, R-Buffalo, while working as a Senate staffer. In a notice of claims

filed March 13, the Eagan resident says he intends to prove he was treated differently from other staffers due to his gender. Brodkorb claims several female staffers had affairs with male legislators but nothing happened. His attorney, Phil Villaume, wrote in the notice he is prepared to dig into the romantic lives of state legislators and staff, while protecting the identities of those involved. Brodkorb was Koch’s executive assistant and communications director when he was let go in December. Koch, who is married, resigned that month after admitting to having an affair with a male staffer, whom she declined to name. Earlier this week, Brodkorb, who is also married, admitted he was the staffer in question. “This has interfered with his ability to get a job and

Brodkorb is seeking a settlement regarding his dismissal from the Senate last December. his reputation has been irrefutably damaged,” Villaume said in a phone interview. For her part, Koch, who resigned her leadership post

last December, admitted to having an inappropriate relationship with a staffer but never named the individual. Brodkorb is demand-

ing damages in excess of $500,000 for the alleged illegal dismissal. Even if he settles, Brodkorb still retains the right to sue senators Chris Gerlach (Apple Valley), Geoff Michel, and David Hann, chief of staff Callen Sheehan and committee administrator Aaron Cocking, all of whom knew of the affair or the events surrounding the firing. Brodkorb claims senators Gerlach, Michel, Hann and Claire Robling met with Koch to tell her to resign and for Brodkorb to be terminated due to the affair. No performance issues have ever been cited. Secretary of the Senate Cal Ludeman issued a statement charging that Brodkorb’s claims were without merit. Ludeman accused Brodkorb of attempting to disrupt the work of the Senate and “extort” a payment.

Brodkorb’s attorneys answered the next day, charging Ludeman had issued a “false and defamatory statement.” Villaume used words like “smear” and “lie” in describing the content of Ludeman’s statement. He further suggested the statement had come as a shock — Villaume said Minnesota Attorney General’s Office and Senate attorney Dayle Nolan had been receptive to the idea of mediation. But Nolan, in response, said her investigation and the claims made by Brodkorb and his attorney led her to conclude there had been no wrongdoing. Villaume said that Brodkorb, who did not appear with his attorneys at a March 15 press conference in St. Paul and is not expected to give interviews to the media, from the start See Brodkorb, 13A

Opinion 4A

March 23, 2012 THISWEEK

Thisweek Columnist Thisweek adapts again to changes in the newspaper business By Larry Werner Thisweek Newspapers

You are reading the last issue of Thisweek. Next Friday, March 30, you’ll be getting a paper called Sun Thisweek. The change represents more than a new name for your weekly newspaper and its website – which will be rechristened SunThisweek.com from ThisweekLive.com. The change is the newest chapter in the history of Dakota County’s second-oldest news organization, which was started in 1884 as the Dakota County Tribune. And it represents another example of the disruptive evolution going on in the business in which I’ve spent my career. As we announced a few months back, ECM Publishers, the Coon Rapids company that owns Thisweek and the Tribune, acquired the Minnesota Sun Newspaper Group, which had been owned by a Dallas company called American Community Newspapers. A few weeks ago, we told you that we would be merging Thisweek and the two Sun Current papers that have been distributed to homes in Dakota County. Next Friday, we will be delivering a Sun

Thisweek that will be larger than either Thisweek or the Sun Current has been, with more news and more advertising than either paper offered before. That’s the future. What about the history of Thisweek and the Sun? In a sense, Thisweek owes its existence to the Sun, the former competitor that is now part of the ECM newspaper family. As I mentioned, Thisweek is a descendent of the Dakota County Tribune, which was started in the county’s frontier days and for a hundred years was the dominant and very successful paper covering government and people in the county. Until the mid1970s, the Tribune operated under a business model that called for readers to buy subscriptions to the paper with advertisers promoting their products and services to those readers through ads. In 1975, a Burnsville resident named Mary Ziegenhagen started a “free weekly” called the Burnsville Current. She distributed her paper, which she later expanded to other communities, to virtually all homes free of charge. The only revenue came from advertisers, who could suddenly reach more

people than they could reach through the smaller-circulation subscription paper. Another paper called Life & Times, started by a man named Dick Sherman, also pursued the free-weekly strategy. The Clay family, of Farmington, decided in 1979 to launch a free newspaper of its own to compete with the Burnsville Current. The Tribune continues to this day as a subscription paper and focuses on business and public-policy news. The Current was purchased in 1983 by a California company and, over the years, added the “Sun” name as metro weeklies were consolidated through mergers with other papers carrying that name. As the competition for local advertising intensified among papers and the Internet, news organizations dependent upon ad revenue have struggled. Several newspaper companies, including the owners of the Star Tribune, the Pioneer Press and the Sun Current, had to file for bankruptcy. ECM has remained profitable and made the decision in December to acquire the Minnesota Sun papers, which included those serving Dakota County. I started reading Thisweek and the Sun

papers when I moved to Lakeville in 1999. When I lived in Edina, the Edina Sun Current was the paper that kept me informed of what was going on in local government and in the schools my children attended. When I worked at the Star Tribune, Thisweek and the Sun Current were the Dakota County papers we saw as our competitors. Since I joined ECM as general manager in Dakota County, my staff has competed against the Sun papers for the news and the advertising. I am delighted that we have merged two former competitors into one news and advertising operation dedicated to serving Lakeville, Farmington, Apple Valley, Rosemount, Burnsville and Eagan. And while we’ve been planning our new paper and website, we’ve also been moving our offices from our longtime home in Burnsville to new offices in Apple Valley. In our business, it seems, there is only one constant. And that constant is change. Larry Werner is editor and general manager of Thisweek Newspapers and the Dakota County Tribune.

Lockheed/from 1A hopes CSM’s plans will increase nearby property values. Kathleen Murphy is also eager for the retail complex to come into fruition. “I particularly like that it is going to be different and be a destination location,” said Murphy, an Eagan resident. Some residents expressed concerns about limited parking, but Palmquist reassured them the site will meet city standards and will have shuttle bus services during peak shopping seasons. Other residents were disappointed the developer is looking at retail instead of

GOP/from 1A vention was that there was no clear consensus on who should be the endorsed candidate,” Johnson said Monday. “The contest only went for two weeks. This will give both time to reach out to all the delegates and alternates and try to help them understand better what they’re all about and differentiate themselves.” The race took shape after a new state legislative map that takes effect next year was unveiled in late February. Veteran Rep. Mary Liz Holberg, R-Lakeville, announced she would move out of District 56B and seek reelection in the newly created District 58A, all of which is within Lakeville. Stepping into the vacuum was Peterson, a Lakeville Area School Board member, and McCall, chairman of the 2nd Congressional District Republican organization. District 56B includes south Burnsville and extends north into east central Burnsville. The Lakeville portion of the district includes only the Orchard Lake area.

other uses. Eagan resident David Senechal had hoped the property would remain research and development or become the new data center site. Plans to build a 138,000-square-foot data center in Eagan were announced in November. The center, called Connextion, will be built along Yankee Doodle Road west of Pilot Knob. Connextion, which will be owned and operated by North Carolina firm Five 9s Digital, will provide off-site data storage and disaster recovery options for telecommunications and Internet service providers as well as

local and regional companies. Senechal noted that Lockheed currently has a data center on the site that could be expanded upon. He also expressed his dismay at the city’s plans to tear down a relatively young building. “In Europe, they have buildings from the 14th and 15th centuries, and here we have a 50-year-old building that you’re planning to tear down to build a new one,” Senechal said. Other residents had hoped the site would be converted into office space, and expressed concerns about whether the city can support additional retail.

But Palmquist pointed out that the current market has little demand for office space. Office space vacancy is at 19 percent within the Twin Cities area, while retail vacancy is at 6.3 percent, Palmquist said. “This is a market-driven decision,” Palmquist said, adding that the project would add up to $2 million to the city’s tax base. Pointing to a recent market study, CSM officials said they are confident retail is the best direction in the current market. The study conducted by Maxfield Research found that Eagan will have a strong demand for new retail over

the next 10 years. Although the Maxfield study indicates a need for retail, it also shows that any new retail would need to be options that are new to the city. Palmquist said Central Park Commons would do just that. CSM has already been approached by several interested tenants, such as an upscale grocer, a sporting goods retailer and a home goods store, Palmquist said, while declining to provide specific names. Last year, the Minneapolis developer asked the city of Eagan to submit a comprehensive guide plan amendment to the Metro-

politan Council that would redesignate 41.2 acres of the 51-acre “research and development” zoned site as “retail commercial.” But now CSM is looking to redevelop 47 acres. CSM’s plans will be presented to the Eagan Planning Commission next week. If the commission supports the plan, its recommendation will go to the City Council for consideration in May. CSM intends to complete the project in 2014, one year after Lockheed Martin is scheduled to vacate the site.

School science teacher, served from 2007 to 2010. Peterson, a two-term School Board member who also chairs the Dakota County Regional Chamber of Commerce, said she considered herself the underdog in the contest with McCall. “As the underdog, I’m not disappointed at all” in Saturday’s results, said Peterson, 46, who works in commercial real estate and is a Burnsville Chamber of Commerce member. “Because I came at a major disadvantage, sort of as an outsider coming into the party. ... As time goes on and I have an opportunity to get to know more of the delegates, I feel that they’ll swing my way.” Peterson said she’s for “smaller government, less spending and lower taxes.” “I really feel that our principles are the same about individual freedoms and limited government,” she said, comparing herself with McCall. “But I think the difference between the two of us is that I might be a little bit better well-known from the public standpoint. And I have run two successful campaigns. Therefore, I feel that I’m more electable.” McCall, 63, said he was the top vote-getter in three of the four ballots, but neither candidate could muster

more than a three-vote margin. Voting delegates numbered from 107 to 114, Johnson said. “I absolutely represent the Republicans in this district,” said McCall, a retiree of more than three decades in marketing and sales positions with 3M. “That’s why I’m the better candidate.” He said he’s closer than Peterson to the Tea Party movement and newly active Republicans, and more in tune with issues that grassroots Republicans care deeply about. “I would say on the conservative issues, whether it’s pro-life or the pro-gun thing, those are all the things that I have actively supported and actively been engaged with. I don’t know about that on the other side,” said McCall, who serves with his wife on the board of Pregnancy Choices LifeCare Center, a crisis pregnancy center in Apple Valley. Both candidates say they will support the endorsee. A failure by the party to endorse would leave each mulling a primary contest in August. District 56B Republicans have 91 delegates in Burnsville and 41 in Lakeville. “I think (Peterson) had really strong support from Lakeville, and Burnsville

probably leaned Terry’s way, but not enough,” Johnson said. Peterson had some help from state Rep. Pam Myhra of Burnsville, who tried to convince delegates that Peterson is the one who can

beat Morgan, said Steve Cherney, the newly elected Republican treasurer in 56B. Myhra, who now represents District 40A, would represent District 56A under the new map. She was endorsed Satur-

day, along with District 40 Sen. Dan Hall of Burnsville, who would represent the new Senate District 56.

Yefim Milshteyn will share his story at ‘Meet the Author’ event

During the Nazi occupation of his native Ukraine in World War II, Yefim Milshteyn’s life was full of nightmares – and miracles. Ethnically Jewish, he was 13 when the grim Nazi agenda started to unfold.

damage a person, but if a person keeps that in the forefront of his mind, it will continue to harm him,” he said. “I have a very positive attitude to everything that’s happening around me. I don’t look for enemies, I don’t look for arguments. I look for kindness and that saves me. “I look at my sons, my grandchildren, my wife – for all of this life is worth living.” As for why he decided to put words to paper and publish his memoir, Milshteyn said it stemmed from a promise he made to his father before they were separated during the Nazi occupation. “My father said you must survive and you must tell everything that happened,” he recalled, tears coming to his eyes. Milshteyn will share his story at Rosemount’s Robert Trail Library on Tuesday, April 3, as part of the “Meet the Author” series presented by the Rosemount Area Arts Council. The 6:30 p.m. event is free and open to the public. He’ll be joined at the library event by Susi Yermishkin, a literacy support teacher at Diamond Path Elementary in Apple Valley who volunteers as Milshteyn’s interpreter. “Journey Through Hell” is available as an eBook on Amazon.com.

Eagan/from 1A its projects than similar communities, Maguire noted. The $8.1 million price tag for Eagan’s fire safety center, for instance, is lower than most shared-use public safety buildings, according a 2011 Fire Chief Magazine article. The new center enabled the fire department to cut its response times in half, making it an invaluable asset, Maguire said. Maguire also noted how Eagan managed to save taxpayers’ money by acquiring the safety center’s land and building without looking to bonds or adding to the tax levy. “That is sound financial management, and I’m extremely proud of Team Eagan for getting that job done the Eagan Way,” he said. Maguire said he also believes open, transparent communication is key to building a strong community and city government. “It’s all about building trust,” he said. Eagan achieves this goal, Maguire said, through various efforts, such as holding community meetings for special assessments and open houses during the annual budget process. “All you have to do is look at the headlines and the controversial dollar costs associated with road projects in several other metro communities to know that Eagan is doing that by doing the right thing with its pavement management program, by being good stewards of the public dollar, by being open and by forming partnerships that make sense,” Maguire said. Though Eagan is on the right path, Maguire said, city officials will face obstacles along the way. Much of city’s stability has been created by experienced city leaders and employees, Maguire said. But Eagan has begun, and will continue to, lose many decades of experience as veterans retire. “To say this will be a time of change is a serious understatement,” Maguire said. “We are challenged to take a fresh look at old assumptions and new solutions.” At the same time, Eagan will continue to be challenged by the struggling real estate market and growing demand for public transportation. “If we are patient and steady with our approach, good things will result. I’m confident of that,” he said. Maguire said he believes past and present leadership have built a “forward-looking legacy” that he plans to maintain in the future. “I can assure you, while the state of the city is strong today, Eagan’s best days are yet to come,” he said.

Burnsville will begin flushing all city-owned fire hydrants on April 2. The anticipated completion date is May 7. Crews will be flushing hydrants from 4 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday. During hydrant flushing, it is not unusual for residents to periodically experience discolored water, pressure changes and/or an increased chlorine odor. Visible iron coloration in water is not a health issue, but may impact its aesthetic quality. If residents notice discolored water, they can correct the problem by opening all cold water faucets in their home and allowing them to run simultaneously until the water clears. Rust remover is available from the Burnsville Maintenance Facility, 13713 Frontier Court, for residents whose laundry has become discolored as a result of hy-

drant flushing. Private hydrant flushing and maintenance for commercial buildings, townhouse associations and apartment complexes is the responsibility of the property owner, but must be coordinated with the city. To schedule private hydrant flushing, contact Linda Mullen at (952) 895-4550. For more information, call (952) 895-4550 or visit www.burnsville.org/hy drants.

Sports Lightning upset in state quarterfinal overtime loss Eastview boys basketball team falls to Eden Prairie at state by Andy Rogers Thisweek Newspapers

Eastview’s Emily Young, No. 33, plays in the Class 4A state tournament last weekend at the Target Center in Minneapolis. Eastview lost to Edina 52-43 in the third-place game on March 17 at Concordia University in St. Paul after leading through much of the first half. Eventually, Edina’s inside game took over, with the Hornets outscoring Eastview 20-10 in the paint. Madison Guebert led the Lightning with 13 points. The girls defeated Saint Michael-Albertville 54-41 in the quarterfinals, but lost to the eventual state champion Hopkins 55-31 in the semifinal. Geubert was named to the Class AAAA Minnesota State Girls’ Basketball All-Tournament team.

still doubled up on Eden Prairie taking a 19-7 lead thanks to the hot hands of Jordan Bolger and Darin Haugh. By halftime, Eden Prairie muscled its way back into the game to make it 21-20. Eastview was limited to just two points in the final 7 minutes, 32 seconds in the first half. The Lightning pulled ahead with a three-point shot by King with 11:08 remaining. The teams exchanged leads and ties for the next six minutes until Haugh’s layup put Eden Prairie two possessions behind with less than two minutes remaining. That’s when Schaeffer starting nailing threes. King led Eastview with 27 points. Haugh added 16 and Bolger put up 14. King and Ben Olberfeld each had seven rebounds. The loss ends Eastview’s season with a 28-2 record.

Don’t mention Eden Prairie’s Jordan Schaeffer around any Eastview boys basketball fan this weekend. He was the main factor in Eastview’s 75-68 overtime loss to Eden Prairie in the Class 4A quarterfinal game Wednesday afternoon at Target Center in Minneapolis. Eastview held a twopossession lead in the final minutes of regulation, but a furious rain of three three-point shots by Schaeffer, including a buzzer beater, sent the game into overtime. He wasn’t done there. Schaeffer scored 12 points in overtime, making 10 free throws, to give him a total of 40 points and ensure an Eden Prairie upset over the No. 3 seed in the tournament. It was a game of several highs and lows for Eastview. With Eastview’s leading scorer King watching Photo by Rick Orndorf from the bench early in Andy Rogers is at andy.

Eastview seniors Blazing Cat consolation champs pass the torch Next generation of young players will try to send Lightning girls back to state next year by Mike Shaughnessy Thisweek Newspapers

Eastview concluded its girls basketball season by finishing fourth in the state Class 4A tournament. The question is, was it the end of an era or the beginning of an era? Then again, why can’t it be both? The Lightning’s 52-43 loss to Edina in the state tournament third-place game March 17 ended a 25-7 season. But a group of previously unheralded seniors – Paige Palkovich, Meghan Ryan, Hannah Shie, Emily Young, Taylor Kuhn and Amber Mehr – closed their careers knowing they helped get their school back to state for the first time in three years. The state tourney also provided a glimpse of the Lightning’s future. Firstyear varsity head coach Melissa Guebert previously was a traveling team coach in the Eastview girls youth program. She has worked with many of the players who are in the high school program’s pipeline. She also likely has her point guard for the next three seasons – her daughter, Madison, a ninth-grader who averaged 18 points a game for the varsity this year. Hopkins romped to the Class 4A championship, defeating all three of its opponents in the state tournament by at least 22 points. Eastview wasn’t able to stop the Hopkins juggernaut, losing 55-31 in the state semifinals March 15 at Target Center. The Lightning scored only 13 points in the first 24 minutes. But once the game was out of reach, the Lightning was able to put younger players on the floor with an eye to next season and beyond. Getting the younger players into a state tournament game “is going to help us,” Melissa Guebert said. “When they step on the court for us next year, they’ll have more confidence.” Hopkins forced Eastview

into 27 turnovers. Madison Guebert was the Lightning’s leading scorer with seven points. The Royals’ depth allows them to keep up the defensive pressure for as long as it takes for opponents to crack. It “makes it so tough for you to get into your offense,” Melissa Guebert said. Madison Guebert had 13 points and Mehr 10 in the third-place game against Edina. Madison Guebert and Palkovich had 15 points each in the Lightning’s 5441 victory over St. MichaelAlbertville in the Class 4A quarterfinals March 14. Mehr had 10 points and 12 rebounds. The state tournament appearance was Eastview’s fifth since 2000. Paul Goetz was head coach for the previous four state trips, including runner-up finishes in 2000 and 2003. Goetz stepped down as head coach after the 2010-11 season but remains with the program as an assistant coach.

Tournament note • Eagan resident LeeAnn Wise coached Richfield to second place in the state Class 3A tournament. The Spartans were the tournament’s No. 1 seed but lost to DeLaSalle 65-45 in the championship game Saturday night. Wise’s daughter, Hannah, is a senior guard for the Spartans. Hannah Wise played youth basketball in Eagan but transferred to Richfield before her ninthgrade year. The opportunity to play varsity basketball for her mother was a big reason for the transfer, Hannah Wise told Richfield Sun-Current sports editor Greg Kleven in a story published last month. Hannah Wise has signed to play basketball at Jamestown College in North Dakota. Mike Shaughnessy is Dakota County sports editor for Sun Newspapers.

Eagan library embraces virtual age

Brodkorb/from 2A made plain his willingness to file suit if efforts at mediation failed. Since the potential lawsuit would be based on the premise that Brodkorb had been treated differently than other staffers and legislators engaged in adulterous affairs, explained Villaume, it would be necessary to take dispositions from these individuals. “We as attorneys don’t threaten,” Villaume said. The next step in the process, Villaume said, will be a filing with the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission alleging gender discrimination. Republican leaders had

New reader bar assists patrons with e-book technology by Jessica Harper Thisweek Newspapers

Eagan residents can now look to their local library for the latest in ereaders. In response to swelling demand for e-books and tech support, a reader bar debuted this month at Eagan Wescott Library. There were 11,051 ebooks checked out from Dakota County libraries in February, which is up from 3,546 in February 2011. “We had been answering lots of questions on e-books and e-readers recently, and thought it would be easier to show it in person,” said Mary Wussow, manager of Wescott Library. Modeled after Apple’s Genius Bar, Wescott’s reader bar features five popular e-readers, which are tethered to the bar and cannot be checked out. “Although it’s a similar concept to the one at Apple stores, we don’t profess to be geniuses,” Wussow said with a laugh. Handouts with step-bystep instructions are placed

A reader bar debuted this month at the Eagan Wescott Library to help patrons learn about different e-readers. Dakota County libraries carry about 3,000 e-books for patrons to choose from. near the readers to help patrons navigate the devices. Librarians are available to answer questions, and offer e-book classes. Though library staff cannot offer recommendations, they can provide national reviews. “Our goal is to provide a noncommercial opportunity for people to become comfortable with the devices before they buy,” Wussow said. Wescott is the only li-

brary within the Dakota County system to have a reader bar. Wussow said she is unsure how long the reader bar will be a feature in the library. There are 3,000 e-books available in the Dakota County library system. The e-books can be checked out using an e-reader, computer or smartphone. Jessica Harper is at jessica. harper@ecm-inc.com.

little to say about developments. “It is what it is,” Senate Majority Leader David Senjem, R-Rochester, said. “If you’re standing in our shoes, you focus on the session.” Senjem downplayed the importance of the matter. He described possible legal actions as a “sidebar potential lawsuit.” Sen. Julianne Ortman, R-Chanhassen, said the Senate was a employer. And as with businesses facing similar employment disputes, the Senate would continue its work. “So that’s what we’ll do — continue with our business,” she said. Senate Minority Leader

Tom Bakk, DFL-Cook, spoke of a bad week in the Senate — legislators doing “nothing but damage” to the institution they have a duty to respect. He said the Brodkorb developments were not a distraction. Bakk suggested that Ludeman’s assertion that all Senate employees are “at will,” or subject to termination at any time, was correct. “I think the Senate will prevail if Michael Brodkorb files a suit against the Senate,” he said.

More assisted-living apartments approved Burnsville council will reexamine senior housing by John Gessner Thisweek Newspapers

The Burnsville City Council approved construction of 64 assistedliving apartments March 20, but called for a closer look at what senior rentals mean for the city. The new building, located on the Fairview Ridges Campus, will be operated by Ebenezer. The Arbors II project, located on the northeast corner of Community Drive and Nicollet Avenue, will expand Ebenezer’s senior services at Fairview Ridges. Ebenezer already has the Arbors at Ridges assisted-living apartments, the Ebenezer Ridge Point Apartments and the Ebenezer Ridges Care Center. With little other housing being built, senior housing is booming in Burnsville. Along with the Arbors II project, 140 senior apartments are under construction on the site of the old Valley Ridge Shopping Center at Burnsville Parkway and County Road 5. That project, being

jointly developed by the Dakota County Community Development Agency and Presbyterian Homes, will have 80 independent units, 40 assisted-living units and 20 memory-care units. The addition of so many senior rentals further removes the city from its stated goal of a housing stock that’s 70 percent owner-occupied and 30 percent rental, Council Member Dan Gustafson said. Gustafson questioned whether the senior rentals should be treated differently when the city tallies its rental vs. owner-occupied housing. He has spoken in favor of stretching the policy to allow more high-end rental housing in Burnsville to accommodate current trends. Home ownership in Burnsville has slipped from 68 percent to 66 percent, according to 2010 Census data. Growth in the number of assisted-living units has already contributed to a growing call load for Burnsville’s city ambulance service, Mayor

Elizabeth Kautz said. “We have to look at senior housing differently,” she said. “We need to have a longer discussion and analysis.” The council will address the topic in a future work session. Burnsville has 25,759 housing units, 5.7 percent of which are senior-only units, both rental and owner-occupied, City Planner Chris Slania said. Rental, assisted-living units comprise 3.4 percent of the housing stock, he said. The Arbors II project is on a “highly visible intersection” within the Ridges Campus and will be an “economic benefit to the community,” according to a city staff report. “It is an appealing building and will make great use of that site, which is currently vacant,” Slania said. The 4.4-acre site will include a 1.9-acre outlot for future development. John Gessner is at john. gessner@ecm-inc.com.

Two killed in Eagan crash

Waters/from 1A songs, currently features Waters’ painting on his Owl City Facebook page. Since its posting last month, Waters’ work has received more than 4,000 “likes” and 300 comments from Owl City fans. Adam Young is not the first celebrity to take note of Waters’ talent. At age 8, Waters’ watercolor painting, “Tatanka,” was selected by actor Kevin Costner for his interpretive center in Deadwood, S.D. The piece, which depicts a herd of buffalo gathering in the Black Hills, is permanently on display at Tatanka: Story of the Bison. Waters submitted the piece after feeling inspired by a visit to the center. “That was a starting point for him. That’s when we knew there was something more here,” Waters’ father, Dale, said. Dale and his wife, Susan, said they first noticed their son’s abilities when he began drawing at age 5. “He has amazing sense of detail and perspective,” said Dale, an artist and graphic designer. Within a few years, Waters began receiving local recognition by earning first place in the Dakota County Arbor Day Post contest and numerous ribbons at the Minnesota State Fair. His favorite media, Waters said, are painting and drawing. He particularly loves to paint sports figures and nature scenes. Waters said his parents have always been his biggest supporter and greatest inspiration, particularly his father, who has been a mentor. The two spend much of their time discussing artistic techniques and buying art supplies together. “It’s really neat to see a father and son having fun and seeing things the same way through art,” Susan said.

Two Eagan residents died in a crash March 17 at the intersection of Amberleaf Trail and Diffley Road. Ashim Ahmed Jr., 18, and Kelly Kristiansen, 42, the drivers of both vehicles, were killed, police said. News reports stated the two-vehicle collision was a head-on crash caused by a car crossing the center line, but Eagan police would not confirm this account. Eagan police and fire responded to the scene at approximately 6 p.m. Saturday. There are no criminal charges at this time and no other details about the crash will be available until the investigation is complete, police said. Jessica Harper is at jessica. harper@ecm-inc.com.

Wrong turn lands motorcyclist in hospital A 38-year-old Burnsville man was hospitalized Monday after crashing his motorcycle at McAndrews Road and Cedar Avenue in Apple Valley. A witness called 911 around 4 p.m. to report that a man was on the ground and “not getting up,” with a motorcycle lying on its side next to him, in the grassy median between the on and off ramps for northbound Cedar Avenue. Police say the man was intending to turn from McAndrews Road onto the northbound Cedar on ramp, but mistakenly turned onto the exit ramp. Heading into oncoming traffic, the man attempted to correct his course but lost control, left the roadway and was ejected from the bike. The man was taken to Hennepin County Medical Center by ambulance. —Andrew Miller
