Seven offer views at candidate forum by John Gessner THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

The Performing Arts Center, the scope of city government and the late Charlie Crichton’s legacy were among the topics addressed Wednesday morning by candidates hoping to succeed Crichton on the Burnsville City Council. Nine candidates have filed for a July 26 special election to replace Crichton, the 18-year council veteran who died on March 13 at age 83. Seven appeared at a Burnsville Chamber of Commerce forum Wednesday at City Hall (absent were John Gullickson,

12854 Nicollet Ave., No. 202, and Aaron Hoy, 12755 Eagle Ridge Drive). “I believe I would be the fiscal conservative voice that Charlie Crichton was,” Bill Coughlin, 13204 Longview Drive, offered during his closing remarks. He called for Burnsville to explore shared services with other local governments and fix aging streets and infrastructure without raising taxes. The forum moderator asked candidates how they might compare with Crichton, who voted against all but three annual budgets and tax levies during his

career and was a stickler for zoning rules. Crichton was “pretty closed-minded” on issues such as signs and variances, said Coughlin, who said as a lawyer he’d be more openminded. “I would say that I’m probably not completely in line with Charlie,” said Tom Hanson, 12309 Parkwood Place. “I don’t believe there is excessive waste in government at this moment, and Charlie was probably a little more conservative on that,” Hanson said. “Charlie was a tower in this community, and I

do not compare myself to him,” said Donna Alberts, 10848 Hayes Drive. Fiscal responsibility “is not just fiscal conservatism” but weighing public needs, she said. Repeat candidate Greg Tomlinson, who got 20 percent of the vote in the fourperson 2010 council election that returned Crichton to office for a city-record record sixth term, said Crichton urged him to “just keep trying, and that’s what I’m doing.” “I believe government should only provide police, fire and roads,” said TomSee Council, 20A

As 18-year-old Daniel Erickson prepares to graduate from Eagan High School this week, he looks back at the happiest moments in the last four years – and hopes his classmates will do the same. “We always remember the negative things that have happened in our lifetime like 9/11, Katrina and the (I-35W) bridge collapse, but we should remember the positive ones too,” said Erickson, who will be student speaker at Saturday’s graduation ceremony. Erickson was selected by the student government. The last four years have been filled with one great moment after another, Erickson said. Simply bouncing ideas off teachers and students has been a blast, he said. “The teachers have such personality and really show it,” he said.

Daniel Erickson His fondest memories are of his time as an anchor on Eagan AM, a closed-circuit television show produced by students. “I love that it’s different from usual classes in that we are working as a team ... to put a product in front of the whole school,” he said.

Honored tutor has ‘street cred’ with his English-language pupils John Yeboah pays forward his experience at Metcalf by John Gessner THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

John Yeboah and Andrea Soderholm both arrived at Burnsville’s Metcalf Junior High in 1999. He was a ninthgrader from Ghana; she was in her first year of teaching English-language students. “He was a dream student,” Soderholm recalled. “Every teacher commented on how General 952-894-1111 Distribution 952-846-2070 Display Advertising 952-846-2011 Classified Advertising 952-846-2000

He had a drive to learn.” The dream student has returned — this time, as a tutor helping out Soderholm and Joyce Lindstrom, Metcalf’s other English-language teacher. Armed with a bachelor’s degree in microbiology but no career yet, Yeboah has been showing up to tutor a few days a week since last October. He’s one of seven volunteers chosen from among 47 nominees for a 2011 John Coskran Volunteer Award in BurnsvilleEagan-Savage School District 191. The School Board honored nominees and winners last month. “I owe them,” Yeboah said of his English-language teachers, “and the whole community of Metcalf school.

Sioux Trail Elementary fifth-grader Luke Haddorf is a true math master. The 11-year-old Burnsville boy recently took home the state title at the Math Masters of Minnesota competition on April 29 in Sauk Rapids. “I just do the best I can do,” he said. “It’s nice to know I’m doing well.” Haddorf was among six fifthgraders from Sioux Trail in Burnsville to compete against Luke Haddorf 168 students of the same grade from across the state. Fifth- and sixth-graders compete individually and as a team in the competition, which is designed to enhance their math and critical-thinking skills. Haddorf and a student from Forest Lake were the only fifth-graders to correctly complete the Fact Drill portion of the competition, enabling them to tie for first. In addition to earning a state title, Haddorf received tickets to a Minnesota Twins baseball game. While Haddorf finished first in the state, his team was named first in the region. This is the first year a Sioux Trail team has competed in the competition. Math Masters coach Jeff Gallus formed the team earlier this year after starting his position as Sioux Trail’s gifted and talented coordinator. Previously, Gallus coached teams at Harriet Bishop Elementary in Savage. Ten students tried out for Sioux Trail’s team this year – only six made it after being tested in a mini meet, Gallus said. In previously working with Haddorf, a gifted and talented student, Gallus instantly knew he would be a good candidate for the team and encouraged him to try out, Gallus said. Haddorf has excelled in math all through school, and it is among his favorite subjects to study. “It’s the best subject to get the brain moving for the day,” he said. When he’s not testing his math skills, Haddorf is competing on Sioux Trail’s chess team, which placed first in the region this year. Haddorf also competed in the spelling bee, districtwide science fair and youth baseball this year. E-mail Jessica Harper jessica.harper@ecm-inc.com

IN BRIEF The School of Environmental Studies held its graduation ceremony for the class of 2011 on Thursday after this edition went to press. Last week, a story featured the school’s other class speaker, Hannah Oakes. To see photos from the ceremony, go online to www.ThisweekLive. com. environmental biology and Spanish at Williams College in Massachusetts, found that in Peru where she studied biodiversity, decisionmaking in the rainforest and Inca culture. Erica says she is interested in the environmental side of sciences because it is more than about animals and ecosystems. “There are aspects of law, government and policy making, social studies, English, and so much more in it,� said Erica, whose ultimate goal is to enroll in medical school and study infectious diseases. For Erica, the school’s curriculum allowed her to draw connections among many different subjects. “It’s cool because you don’t really feel like you’re learning and then one day you realize that you know a lot of stuff,� she said. She experienced this approach to education through a study unit on ponds that incorporated lectures from Eagan city officials, learning about machines used to maintain pond health, poetry and then conducting experiments at local ponds. “SES is more than a school, it is a mentality,� Erica said. “That way of thinking will stick with me through my whole life. It really changed the way I see the world.� Tad Johnson is at editor. thisweek@ecm-inc.com.

District 196 to borrow $15 million

be reviewed by the board in June. The School Board also is considering pulling a line of credit, which the district would borrow from on an as-needed basis. “We see the line of credit as a safety net,� Solomon said, adding that a line of credit has a higher interest rate than aid anticipation certificates. When asked if he believes a potential government shutdown will negatively affect the school district, Solomon said he does not expect it to be. Based on previous experiences, it’s unlikely that a government shutdown will greatly affect District 196, Solomon said. During the last shutdown in 2005, the district received nearly all of its federal and state aid. Regardless of a potential shutdown, the district will likely continue to face an uphill battle with its cash flow. Projections show that the district will continue to run into cash flow problems in 2012, and officials are looking to property tax anticipa-

tion certificates as a possible solution. Property tax anticipation certificates are similar to aid anticipation certificates, except they are repaid with property tax revenue rather than state aid. Although District 196 is facing dubious cash flow, the district’s fund balance has remained stable, Solomon said.

The Rosemount-Apple Valley-Eagan School District will borrow $15 million in July to avoid a potential cash flow shortfall created by delayed state aid. In a 5-0 vote on May 24, the School Board approved issuing $15 million in aid anticipation certificates, which are loans that help school districts alleviate cash flow issues and are to be repaid using state aid. Mike Roseen was absent from the meeting. “It’s unfortunate we are in this position,� Board Member Art Coulson said. “And we are not alone.� Coulson said he takes issue with some state officials accusing local governments of mismanaging their funds. “This is not our doing,� he said. “It’s a problem of their doing.� This will be the first time District 196 has ever issued aid anticipation certificates, which the district intends to repay in six months, said Jeff Solomon, finance director for District 196.

Solomon estimates that approximately 70 percent of school districts nationwide have, at some time, used some sort of cash flow borrowing. If District 196 doesn’t acquire aid anticipation certificates, it will have a negative cash balance for 52 days between July 8 and Aug. 29, according to recent projections. The district is projected to have a negative cash flow of $11.7 million in August. This shortfall is a result of about $68 million in cash flow being pulled from the school district over the past two years, which is due to delays in state aid payments, Solomon said. Though the loan will help the district while it awaits delayed state aid, the district will incur fees totaling $57,625. However, the district could earn interest on the aid by investing for four to six months. “But investment rates are quite low,� Solomon said. The certificates are currently being put up for sale by the Ehlers financial advisory firm. The bids will

Businesses resurrect Sunday concert series in Heart of the City by John Gessner THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

Three Burnsville businesses are resurrecting a concert series that will make summer weekends last a little longer. The Sunday-night Heart of the City Music in the Park series kicks off on June 19 with the School of Rock Road Crew. It will continue on consecutive Sundays through Aug. 14. Organizers have assembled an adventurous lineup of Twin Cities talent, with sounds ranging from hard rock to classic jazz to “newgrass.� All shows are at 7 p.m. at Nicollet Commons Park in Burnsville’s Heart of the City. Admission is free. “It’s a great way to not only promote, but to entertain our community in our back yard,� said Sandra Schlaefer, president of King and Cos., an employee benefit firm and independent insurance agency located at Nicollet Plaza in the Heart of the City. Schlaefer, who also lives in Burnsville, got the ball rolling after inquiring with the city about promotional opportunities tied to events at Nicollet Commons Park. Sunday-night concerts at the park date back to 2006, when the board of the Lake Alimagnet Center for the Arts used a small portion of its allocation of city funds to

But the city closed the center in 2009 amid budget cuts, taking with it funding for the concert series. There was no Sunday series last summer. “We couldn’t be happier that it’s back,� said J.J. Ryan, Burnsville’s recreation and facilities superintendent. “It’s a great way to wrap up the weekend, in my view.� The city’s contribution is making the park available, Ryan said.

School of Rock instructor Melody Mendis lined up the acts. “Only us three together would be able to do this, because we all have different strengths,� Schlaefer said.

Opinion Thisweek Columnist Can you take South St. Paul out of the boy? by Larry Werner THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

â&#x20AC;&#x153;From Eagan to presidential candidate,â&#x20AC;? read the headline in last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Thisweek. Actually, Tim Pawlentyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s roots arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t in Eagan, his adopted home, but the old stockyard city of South St. Paul. His book and stump speeches take pains to point out the Republican candidate for president has humble, blue-collar roots. Son of a truck driver whose mother died when Tim was young, first member of his Polish, Catholic family to graduate from college. It makes a good bio for someone who aspires to become the leader of a country where, we are proud of saying, even a poor kid can become president. And therein lies the big ques-

tion I have about the guy. How did he get from there to where he is? How did a poor, Polish, Catholic kid become a conservative, evangelical Christian champion of cutting the taxes that pay for services so important to those living in the circumstances Pawlenty escaped? I know people change. But I find it curious that a guy can change that much. I grew up in circumstances not that different from those of our former governor. We lived in the blue-collar town of Bay City, Mich., where my father changed tires and oil on trucks for a small freight hauler. My five siblings and I were raised Catholic because my Polish mother took charge of things spiritual, and my German-Lutheran father

brought home the bacon. Actually, he was able to save on bacon by raising vegetables, chickens and rabbits on our four acres just outside of town. Harold Werner was proud of the money he saved by feeding his family home-grown produce, chicken and, yes, rabbit prepared a dozen different ways by Mom. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some weeks, all we have to buy is milk and day-old bread,â&#x20AC;? he would boast to relatives who complained about their grocery bills. We were poor, but, as people raised similarly like to say, we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know we were poor. I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know how poor we were until the day I got a copy of my fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s W-2 so I could apply for a college loan. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll never get over the shock of learning that my father raised six kids on $7,000 a year.

One of my fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proudest days was when he attended my commencement ceremony at Michigan State University. I, like our former governor, was the first member of my family to earn a college degree. Circumstances like those shaped me and the way I look at life. Despite recurring doubts and questions, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve remained Catholic, and I still head for northeast Minneapolis to get my Polish sausage for Christmas and Easter. (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Holy rope,â&#x20AC;? my dad called it.) Having drifted over the years into management jobs and entrepreneurial ventures, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen threats to business from toopowerful unions and zealous government regulators. But there are some aspects of who I was that will always be. The most significant is the em-

pathy I feel for those who havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t escaped poverty, as Gov. Pawlenty and I have. And despite his tough talk about cutting government services so important to those most vulnerable, I hope our former governor will think about where he came from and how privileged he is to be where he stands today. In other words, I hope there is still some of that South St. Paul boy in the man from Eagan. Larry Werner is editor and general manager of the Dakota County Tribune and Thisweek Newspapers.

Letters Wardlow: Voters sent us to rein in spending growth To the editor: Last week, Gov. Mark Dayton vetoed our balanced budget plan. The plan would have increased state spending 6 percent (nearly $3 billion), utilizing revenue growth under existing tax levels. It raised education funding 3.2 percent, provided $570 million more in health and human services funding, and offered tax relief to businesses and middle-income Minnesotans. The voters sent us to St. Paul to rein in unsustainable state spending growth and make sure government

lives within its means. In these tough economic times, families are struggling to make ends meet. Businesses are downsizing and innovating to deal with a sluggish market. Government must do the same. I will stand firm as we head for a special session. We must control spending and end cyclical deficits in this state. No one wants to hear divisive political rhetoric, and no one wants to see the government shut down over a billion-dollar tax increase. The bottom line is this: Increasing taxes to fuel government growth is irresponsible â&#x20AC;&#x201C; especially when the economy is struggling to recover.

This debate is about what Minnesota can afford today, tomorrow and 10 years from now. It is about creating a state where businesses grow jobs and thrive, where families have confidence in our economy and community institutions, and where our children wake up every day to a brighter Minnesota. Prosperity is the result of Minnesotans pursuing their dreams and helping their neighbors in need with generosity of spirit, not government programs. I hope the governor will recognize this fact as negotiations move forward.

To the editor: On Wednesday morning, May 18, I attended a Realtor forum presented by the city of Apple Valley at the Municipal Center to inform Realtors about the many services and benefits of living in the city of Apple Valley. The program was put on by city staff, Mayor Mary Hamann-Roland, the Apple Valley City Council, Police Chief Scott Johnson and School District 196 Superintendent Jane Berenz. Over 60 Realtors attended the well-planned program. DOUG WARDLOW Much to my surprise, District 38B state represen- early in the program the tative, Eagan mayor invited me to come forward. When she called my name I wondered what it was all about and hesitated to step forward. The mayor made nice comments about my longtime community service and promotion of the city of Apple Valley. Then City Manager Tom Lawell read a proclamation designating May 18, 2011, as William H. Tschohl Day  in Apple Valley. Needless to  say I was overwhelmed by this honor. It would be difficult to personally thank all those involved or to respond to the many telephone calls, emails and congratulatory cards I have received. The response to this recognition just reinforces the decision     ďż˝ ďż˝  we made in 1979 to move our family to Apple Valley and begin my 32-year career in real estate. As my wife, Nancy, and I have said many times, this was the best decision we could have made. We are fortunate to have such capable people at the city of Apple Valley looking out for our best interests. And with the leadership in District 196 it has made it much easier over the years to bring thousands of home  buyers to the city of Apple Valley.

Thank you, city of Apple Valley

There are many civic organizations you can join to continue to improve life in Apple Valley. I encourage everyone to become more involved as a supporter of the community. I have enjoyed my association with our St. Paul Association of Realtors, the Apple Valley Rotary Club, the Knights of Columbus, the Minnesota Valley In-Fisherman Club and the Boy Scouts of America. Thanks again for the great honor. It is easy to promote and enjoy such a great city. BILL TSCHOHL Apple Valley

Is the state moving forward? To the editor: To say the least, I was totally underwhelmed by Rep. Tara Mackâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s self-congratulatory letter (May 27) and revision of history in which she heaped platitudes on the Legislature for the nonsession which just came to a grinding â&#x20AC;Ś special session. Mack failed to mention that the GOP began with a promise to create jobs. Result: None. They did present a constitutional amendment barring gays from marrying (forget that we already have that law on the books). And photo IDs (cost to the state around $8 million) in a state which is revered nationally for the integrity of the vote. That one merely disenfranchises the elderly, students, and minorities to keep them from the polls. They pulled the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Shoot Firstâ&#x20AC;? bill at the last minute, in the face of opposition from every police and law enforcement agency. They stuck to the â&#x20AC;&#x153;no new taxesâ&#x20AC;? failed philosophy of Tim Pawlenty, who left us $5 billion in the hole, requiring additional property taxes (especially harm-

ful to those with fixed incomes) and â&#x20AC;&#x153;feesâ&#x20AC;? as well as a bunch of accounting gimmicks. (Their logic: If itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a fee, you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to count it.) They dance to the tune of those who already pay less taxes than the majority, and refuse to consider leveling the playing field. They are killing local government assistance, higher education funding, keeping thousands off the health care rolls, to mention a few, refuse to compromise with Gov. Mark Dayton even though he offered a substantial reduction in his original proposal. Next up â&#x20AC;&#x201C; kill the legacy amendment, ignore the infrastructure, forget the need to improve early childhood education, fill the emergency rooms with people without health care, and the beat goes on. Mack states, â&#x20AC;&#x153;as we move forward,â&#x20AC;? without the slightest realization that this Legislature is only interested in moving in reverse. How do you spell Mississippi?

Garage sale organizers urged to donate 5 percent To the editor: The first Saturday in June will once again bring us South River Hills Day. This 38-year tradition of 100 or more garage sales, art/craft sales, food booths and much more coincides for the first time ever with the Burnsville CommunityWide Garage Sale as a part of I Love Burnsville Week. When South River Hills Day was started the founders had the wisdom to ask all participants to donate at least 5 percent of their individual sales to a local school See Letter, 8A

Concert Series/from 4A Select School of Rock students who perform as the School of Rock Road Crew will kick off the series on June 19. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an auditioned School of Rock band, and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re fantastic,â&#x20AC;? said Mendis, who once sang professionally with the Detroit Opera Company. Her own band, Melody and the Dramatics â&#x20AC;&#x201D; which Mendis describes as a fusion of jazz, rock, Latin and soul â&#x20AC;&#x201D; takes the stage on July 10. Other performers include contemporary folk trio Lingua Luna, which Mendis said has a â&#x20AC;&#x153;newgrassâ&#x20AC;? vibe; Time Turners, an old-school country duo; jazz singer Alison Lund, who will be backed by indie-popsters the Queen of France; veteran Twin Cities jazz vocalist Lee Engele; and the grunge erainfluenced Space Hazards. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was really fun programming it because I love bringing out the local talent, creating just an eclectic fusion of different styles so thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something for everyone,â&#x20AC;? Mendis said. Organizers are seeking business sponsors for individual evenings. Sponsorships are $100 for businesses that participate in a Heart of the City e-marketing program and $150 for other businesses, Schlaefer said. Sponsors that signed on early are Milioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in the Heart of the City (also the licensed food vendor in Nicollet Commons Park) and Burnsville-based Pawn America. The money will go to the bands. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really pennies,â&#x20AC;? Mendis said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good exposure for the bands and really great for Burnsville to have live music.â&#x20AC;?

Machacek Niebuhr Letter/from 6A or charity. Over the years that little 5 percent has added up to over $100,000 donated here locally, primarily to William Byrne Elementary, Metcalf Junior High, B. Robert Lewis House and Kennelly House. This wonderful community event simply would not happen without the help of more than 40 volunteers who truly make South River Hills Day possible. Our local business sponsors, including long-standing supporters Cornerstone Copy Center and River Hills Automotive, and first-year sponsor Touch of Home Furnishings are also great examples of giving back to our Burnsville community. As co-chairs of this entirely volunteer-run event we offer a challenge to the 75 Community-Wide Garage Sale participants to follow the tradition of the South River Hills Day founders and donate at least 5 percent of your sales this year to a local charity or school. That would be a great way to â&#x20AC;&#x153;put our money where our mouth isâ&#x20AC;? and show just how much we all love Burnsville. See you on June 4, rain or shine.

Woman charged with prostitution, selling pot to undercover officer A 20-year-old woman faces drug and prostitution charges after her arrest in a Burnsville police prostitution sting.

posted on a website under the name â&#x20AC;&#x153;Kat.â&#x20AC;? She agreed to come to an apartment in Burnsville. The ad said she was â&#x20AC;&#x153;fourtwenty friendly,â&#x20AC;? which police say refers to using marijuana. Bloxson offered the officer both sexual services for

$175 and a baggie of marijuana for an agreed-upon price of $45, according to the criminal complaint. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s charged with a fifth-degree controlled-substance crime, a felony, and prostitution, a misdemeanor. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; John Gessner

Farmingtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Fogarty helps bridge the gap to dental care for the poor

by Laura Adelmann THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

Farmington City Council Member Christy Jo Fogarty needed political action before she could pursue her professional ambitions and fulfill her desire to help poor children receive dental care. Fogarty, a dental hygienist, said she grew concerned when she consistently saw the poor and uninsured delay dental care because they were unable to afford it. In most cases, pain would eventually force them into a dentistâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chair, but the severity of the problem and financial constraints reduced their options to pulling the tooth. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ultimately, that is not good dental health. I have a desire to help those people get basic dental care,â&#x20AC;? Fogarty said.

Fogarty, who is working on her capstone project of creating a framework for the Dental Therapy Association and graduates June 24, said she hopes to use her new skills to provide dental care for indigent children without insurance coverage. She said nationally, children miss 52 million hours of school as a direct result of needing medical attention for dental health issues. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That statistic has always stuck in my head. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s heartbreaking to think that a kid canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go to school because he canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get to a dentist to fix it,â&#x20AC;? Fogarty said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This might not be a silver bullet, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one more tool in the tool box to help these kids get more services.â&#x20AC;?

Thisweekend Eagan Market Fest kicks off June 8 Weekly event on Wednesdays at Central Park offers food, music, family fun by Andrew Miller THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

Eagan Market Fest returns this summer with an expanded schedule, additional concessions and a new pavilion. The weekly, city of Eagan-run event thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s part farmersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; market and part community festival will kick off its fifth season from 4 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, June 8, at the Eagan Festival Grounds at Central Park, 1501 Central Parkway. Each Wednesday throughout the summer, fest-goers can select from an array of fresh fruit, vegetables and produce, purchase dinner from one of three concession vendors and enjoy live music at the Eagan Rotary Band Shell. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wednesday nights at Central Park are a perfect night to get outdoors, take a walk and enjoy the food and entertainment at Market Fest,â&#x20AC;? said Juli Seydell

Johnson, Eagan Parks and Recreation director. In addition to food items, the event features a host of artisan products such as jewelry, woodcrafts and garden art. Each week also features art activities for kids sponsored by the Eagan Art House, as well as an outdoor games area for families with a beanbag toss, sack races and parachutes. To get kids into the spirit of the weekly concerts at the Eagan Rotary Band Shell, hula hoops and inflatable guitars â&#x20AC;&#x201C; for exuberant air-guitar theatrics â&#x20AC;&#x201C; will be provided. Theme nights return to this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s festival, including Classic Car Show & Oldies Music Night on June 22, which will feature Elvis tribute artist Art Kistler; Family Night on July 6 with a teen battle of the bands and concert by family act the Okee Dokee Brothers; and

Health and Wellness Night on July 27. A new promotion this year is Bike to the Market â&#x20AC;&#x201C; people who ride their bikes to Market Fest on June 8, 15, 22 or 29 will receive a $5 voucher good for purchasing produce at the event. The festival has seen continued growth since its inception a half decade ago when it had about a dozen regular vendors and drew about 3,000 people over the course of the summer. Organizers estimated last summerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s overall attendance at 28,000, and this summer more than 60 vendors registered. With food vendors, the focus is on local, said Kerry Phillips, coordinator of Eagan Market Fest â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a producersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; market,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everything is locally grown and produced, and all of our farms are local farms.â&#x20AC;? Opening night June 8

will include a bag giveaway at 4 p.m., seedlings and childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s book giveaways at 6:30 p.m., and an Arbor Day celebration and community planting from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Admission to Eagan Market Fest is free. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s festival runs June 8 to Sept. 28 for a total of 17 days â&#x20AC;&#x201C; five more than last year. The festival starts the summer season with some good karma â&#x20AC;&#x201C; at the end of last season it was listed as one of Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Favorite Farmers Markets by American Farmland Trust. Festgoers can help put Eagan Market Fest back on that list this year by voting at www.farmland.org/vote. More information is at www.cityofeagan.com/marketfest. Photo submitted

Above, Wayne and Gwen Olsen, whose son Daniel died while serving in 2007 in Operation Iraqi Freedom, presented a wreath to American Legion Commander Tom Mullon. At right, the Police and Fire Honor Color Guard participated in the event, which was organized by the Eagan American Legion and Eagan Lioness Club. The principal speaker was Sen. Ted Daley of Eagan.

BEYOND THE BOXSCORE

As a Section 3AAA semifinalist, the Burnsville baseball team is two wins from returning to the state tournament. After advancing to state last year, Blaze players didn’t know if they would have the chance again. With returning stars Matt Stemper, Dan Motl, Derek Johnson, Andy Lieser and Justin Threlkeld, the Blaze knew they could score. The challenge was to replace 14 wins from last year’s senior pitchers. Quinn Johnson and Brian Vanderwoude returned to the mound, but to rise to the top the team needed more than two strong arms. Most teams seek talent from their junior varsity squad, but Burnsville had a secret out on the links. Adam Lambrecht played traveling baseball during the summer, but his chosen varsity sport in the spring was golf. Lambrecht scored in the upper 70s in 2010 for the Blaze, but he found himself looking forward to summer baseball. “My velocity improved a lot over the winter,” Lambrecht said. “I played with most of the Target Field guys (Burnsville state tournament players) last summer. I get along real well with those guys. It’s been a

lot of fun.” He started his first game against Eagan on April 8, earning the win, and he’s been throwing strikes ever since. He’s compiled a 6-0 record with a 1.43 ERA and 38 strikeouts, leading the team in every category. He was named all conference and has made the Blaze more of a threat in 2011. The transformation is impressive because golf and baseball don’t have the same skill set. It’s not like making a transition from hockey to lacrosse or cross country to track. The fact that baseball is a team sport is attractive to Lambrecht. “You’re just alone on a golf course,” Lambrecht said. “Nothing compares to having teammates.” When golfers hit poor shots into the sand, all they can do is hang their heads and sigh while they mark it on the card. In baseball, if a pitch goes wild into the dirt, the catcher will back it up. It also helps when a team like the 2011 Blaze averages about nine runs per game. It’s a much more pleasant situation for Lambrecht who was admittedly too hard on himself on the golf course. “It’s just a recreational

weekend thing for me now,” Lambrecht said. “I’ve decided to shut down the competitive golf.” Count Burnsville coach Mick Scholl as a fan of Lambrecht’s decision. “He’s definitely a kid who can help us out,” Scholl said. “I’m certainly glad he chose our sport.” The Blaze came into the Section 3AAA playoffs as the No. 1 seed with a better record than a year ago. Lambrecht finished off the final inning of five in the 13-0 rout over Rosemount in the Section 3AAA quarterfinals on Monday. It only took the Blaze four innings to score 13 runs. Johnson earned the victory with four scoreless innings. Lieser (3-for-3, RBI and a triple), Stemper (home run, two RBI) and Motl (three runs scored, triple and two RBI) made sure the Blaze weren’t going to be eliminated. The loss ends Rosemount’s season. The first two rounds are single elimination, which isn’t everyone’s favorite format. “I don’t like it,” Scholl said. “It puts the kids in a tight spot, but it’s my job to help them relax.” The Blaze spent the pregame tailgating in the parking lot before the Rosemount game while trying to focus on the sun rather than fear of losing. “It’s about just having

Burnsville pitcher Kelsey Anderson struck out 21 batters when she went the distance in a 15-inning 2-1 loss to Bloomington Jefferson on Wednesday afternoon in the Class 3A section final in Eagan. The Blaze, previously undefeated in the section playoff, had a chance to redeem the loss and qualify for state by winning the second game, which started right after the loss Wednesday night after this edition went to press. In the first game, both teams scored in the 14th inning and Jefferson’s winning run came when a runner scored from first on a double into the outfield gap. At left, Danielle Wolk breaks from second base during the game. For an update and more photos, go online at www.ThisweekLive.com.

son. He threw in the team’s 4-1 win against Park of Cottage Grove on Monday for the first time in almost two months. A few more timely hits and Eastview would have felt more comfortable. “We got out of a couple tight spots,” Strey said. “We had a few double plays that got us out of a jam, but we left like 12 guys on base.” As the No. 2 seed, Eastview is a Section 3AAA semifinalist. The team will play No. 3 seed St. Thomas Academy on Friday at Alimagnet Field in Burnsville. The final four teams play in a double-elimination bracket. The winner advances to state. The other two teams are No. 5 seed Eagan and No. 1 Burnsville. Eagan defeated Apple Valley 6-5 on Monday. During the regular season Eastview swept Eagan and split with Burnsville. Eastview has made a habit of advancing to the final four in the past five years. The last time the Lightning had a sub-.500 record was in 2007, otherwise they have been a contender every year. “Anything can happen,” Strey said. “We have guys who know what it’s all about.” Getting through the final four has proved to be difficult. Eastview has never qualified for state. McDevitt joins an already potent pitching lineup with Alec Knop, Adam Moorse, Tom Jerle, and Austin Lindquist. The Lightning have given up more than three runs only five times this season. “The sky is the limit for us right now,” McDevitt said. “All of them are capable of getting the job done when it matters.” He’s just happy he can help instead of watching from the dugout.

When doctors told Eastview’s Ty McDevitt he wasn’t going to pitch this spring and probably not this summer, he didn’t believe them. He was diagnosed with scapular weakness in his shoulder in late April, which to most people meant his next pitch was going to be for the University of Minnesota as a freshman in college. His shoulder hurt, but the pain of not playing was worse. “It was almost like my shoulder was just floating there,” McDevitt said. “My first couple outings in April were interesting. There was probably less than 1 percent chance that I could come back, but I just stuck to the rehab program.” McDevitt didn’t want to leave Eastview High School without pitching again. He believes the Lightning have a chance at something special during the playoffs. “I really didn’t want to miss this,” McDevitt said. He didn’t need surgery, just hours and hours of rehab and rest. “It was a ridiculous amount of arm exercises,” McDevitt said. “It was about a month and a half of hardcore rehab.” With some consultation from Minnesota Twins doctor Dan Buss, McDevitt made what many would call a stunning recovery. “It’s pretty amazing,” Eastview head coach Tom Strey said. “It really is. He worked really hard. No one thought he was going to play this spring or even summer.” McDevitt didn’t wake up cured one day. He said he spent about five hours per day stretching, lifting weights and eventually pitching. It remains to be seen how effective he can be in Rogers is at what could be the last few Andy games of Eastview’s sea- andy.rogers@ecm-inc.com.

BHS seniors receive scholarships and awards

A rainy morning didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t dampen the second annual Hidden Valley Elementary all-student field trip to the McColl Pond Environmental Learning Center in Savage in May. Students and teachers took advantage of the 10-acre natural area to participate in several life and environmental science lessons, including learning about the food chain, macro-invertebrates, water plant identification, bird behavior, pollution and much more. All students toured the new center and learned about its green design and sustainable architecture.

Scholarships and awards were presented to students during the 2011 Senior Honors Recognition Ceremony at Burnsville High School on May 16. Seniors received scholarships from local civic organizations, businesses and individuals. In addition, 48 seniors reported that they will receive scholarships of $10,000 or more from colleges and universities they will attend next fall. Each academic department at the high school presented an outstanding senior award. Seniors also received specific awards for their achievements in academics, athletics and the arts.

Savage fifth-grader Terrence Montour was one of the stars of this springâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s regional and state Special Olympics swim meets. At regionals, Montour placed first in the 25-meter unassisted swim and went on to place third in the event at the state level. He also took home second place in the 15-meter unassisted swim at the regional level. Now that swimming season is over, Montour is on the track, competing in the long jump, 50-yard dash, and 100yard dash. In honor of their classmate, the student council is asking students, employees and families to donate a different coin denomination each day of the week: pennies on Monday, nickels on Tuesday, dimes on Wednesday, quarters on Thursday, and dollars on Friday. Any student who donates a dollar on Friday will receive special permission to wear a hat during school.

Under NO circumstance should you send any money in advance or give the client your checking, license ID, or credit card numbers. Also beware of ads that claim to guarantee loans regardless of credit and note that if a credit repair company does business only over the phone it is illegal to request any money before delivering its service.

Erickson/from 1A tivities, and the theme was hockey â&#x20AC;&#x201C; his favorite sport. Erickson said his best day ever was when the Anaheim Ducks won the 2007 Stanley Cup. Though Erickson doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t play the sport, he takes pleasure watching the game and serving as a DJ for the youth hockey team his younger brother, Ryan, plays on. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I love the opportunity to help my brother,â&#x20AC;? Erickson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Even though heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a freshman, my brother is like my best friend.â&#x20AC;? Ryan is not the only freshman Erickson has reached out to this past year. This fall, Erickson joined Eagan High Schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Link Crew, a group of upperclassmen who help incoming freshmen acclimate to the school. In addition to Link Crew, Erickson is a member of the high schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chess team where he has served as captain for two years. Erickson is also a member of the speech team, and has earned a letter in speech every year for the past four years. When heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not giving award-winning speeches, Erickson is sitting back playing video games or reading a comic book â&#x20AC;&#x201C; his favorites are Star Wars, Batman Beyond and Atomic Robo. But not everything in Ericksonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life is fun and games. He is also seriously preparing for his future. Earlier this year, Erickson received a four-year, full-tuition Regent Scholarship from Northwestern College, a private Christian liberal arts college in St. Paul. There he plans to major in communication. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a specific career plan yet,â&#x20AC;?

Best Value Contracting Selection: This project is extensive, involving many affected property owners. Timing of the project is critical for the safety of the general public and to minimize disruption. In addition, the City has limited financial resources to commit to the project. Accordingly, the project must be accomplished with a minimum of interruption, on time, and without cost overruns. The City believes that only a contractor with good experience in constructing this kind of project is necessary. Two factors will be considered in the contractor selection process: price and performance. The process for the consideration of proposals for the award of this Project will take into account not only the Contract amount bid for construction items, but also the bidder's ability and performance on previous similar projects, within and outside the City of Eagan, and the bidder's availability of major equipment to perform this project. The evaluation criteria to be utilized will be the total proposal price divided by the aggregate average technical performance score, as determined by the technical evaluation committee. Mandatory Pre-Bid Meeting: A mandatory Pre-Bid Conference will be held at 10:30 A.M., C.D.S.T. at the Eagan Municipal Center at 3830 Pilot Knob Road on Tuesday, June 7, 2011 in the Eagan Room (2nd Floor). The purpose of the conference is to provide details and answer questions regarding the evaluation/selection criteria that will be used, along with bid price, to select a Contractor for contract award under the Best Value Contracting Authority. Failure to attend this meeting shall eliminate an absent bidder's bid submission from contract award consideration. Attendance at the conference will be recorded. Technical Proposal Deadline: Prospective Bidders' technical proposals must be received by 10:30 A.M. C.D.S.T., Monday, June 13, 2011 at the Eagan Municipal Center at 3830 Pilot Knob Road. Each bid proposal shall be accompanied by a bidder's bond naming the City of Eagan as obligee, a certified check payable to the Clerk of the City of Eagan or a cash deposit equal to at least five percent (5%) of the amount of the bid, which shall be forfeited to the City in the event that the bidder fails to enter into a contract. The City Council reserves the right to retain the deposits of the three lowest bidders for a period not to exceed sixty (60) days after the date and time set for the opening of the bids. No bids may be withdrawn for a period of sixty (60) days after the date and time set for the opening of bids. Payment for the work will be by cash or check. The City reserves the right to reject any and all bids and technical proposals, to waive irregularities and informalities therein and further reserves the right to award the contract to the best interests of the City.

Council/from 1A linson, of 14745 Portland Ave., No. 218. Bruce Johnson, 2504 Crestmount Lane, added his fealty to Crichtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fiscal tightness (Johnson ran for state representative last in District 40A under the Constitution Party banner), as did Steven Atkins, 12316 Michelle Circle. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think you can spend yourself into prosperity,â&#x20AC;? said Atkins, who added that Crichton sometimes â&#x20AC;&#x153;went a little bit over on the zoning.â&#x20AC;? Johnson said the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s $20 million Performing Arts Center, which opened in 2009, is â&#x20AC;&#x153;probably the biggest thing in the community people are really concerned about.â&#x20AC;? The facility is losing â&#x20AC;&#x153;almost half a million dollarsâ&#x20AC;? a year, which is â&#x20AC;&#x153;atrociousâ&#x20AC;? and needs to be halved, Tomlinson said. The centerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s operating subsidy, which doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t include annual debt service, was $390,000 in 2010, according to a figure supplied by Deputy City Manager Tom Hansen. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an improvement over 2009, when the subsidy was $547,580, according to VenuWorks,

Yeboah/from 1A plained things to me like American culture,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She made things way, way easier. She was like a bridge.â&#x20AC;? He graduated from Burnsville High School in 2003 and earned his bachelorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s degree from the University of Minnesota. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s looking for lab work and volunteering one day a week in the pharmacy at Fairview Southdale Hospital. Yeboah said he may go to graduate school. For now, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s become a fixture in the Metcalf media center, where he recently worked with ELL student Kevin Reyes on algebra. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let you move on unless you specifically know what youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing,â&#x20AC;?

which runs the center. The center is part of what makes Burnsville a destination, according to Alberts. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People come for the Performing Arts Center, they come for meals or they come for shopping,â&#x20AC;? said Alberts, a 36-year resident who called for greater citizen engagement, better transportation in Burnsville and a â&#x20AC;&#x153;healthier community overallâ&#x20AC;? with greater walkability. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am Burnsville,â&#x20AC;? Alberts said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I did move here all the way from Eagan, so Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m familiar with Dakota County in general.â&#x20AC;? Candidates called for attracting business to improve the tax base and for attention to aging infrastructure. The city for years has been building an â&#x20AC;&#x153;infrastructure trust fund.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want to make sure Burnsville doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t turn into a city such as some that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d find in the northern suburbsâ&#x20AC;? that are â&#x20AC;&#x153;falling apart,â&#x20AC;? Hanson said. The city faces a â&#x20AC;&#x153;road-fix crisisâ&#x20AC;? in coming years, said Coughlin, who said some of the money spent on the arts center subsidy would have gone to roads. Raising taxes to fix roads â&#x20AC;&#x153;should not be on the table,â&#x20AC;?

said Reyes, 14. Yeboah is an all-purpose tutor for the ELL students. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He reads with you,â&#x20AC;? said 14-year-old Ibrahim Mahmoud. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always there if you get something wrong. ... He goes, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not OK, but I know you can do better â&#x20AC;&#x201D; stop slacking off.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;? The students know Yeboah was in their place once, which gives him â&#x20AC;&#x153;street cred,â&#x20AC;? Soderholm said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have survived without him this year,â&#x20AC;? Lindstrom said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have one particular boy this year whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in eighth grade. He really needed a boost.â&#x20AC;? Yeboah has â&#x20AC;&#x153;encouraged Calvin to where he really wants to try. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s changed him, totally.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the story over and over and over about

Coughlin said. Atkins said the city should consider â&#x20AC;&#x153;novelâ&#x20AC;? ways to raise money that donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hike taxes. Perhaps granting a single garbagehauling franchise could raise money to fix roads, he said. Atkins said his chief concerns are ensuring â&#x20AC;&#x153;upper-level job growthâ&#x20AC;? in Burnsville, maintaining infrastructure and renewing the â&#x20AC;&#x153;face of the retail business in Burnsville.â&#x20AC;? Burnsville should also review its emergency preparedness, Hanson said, citing recent disasters around the globe. Shane McCartney, 15151 Greenhaven Drive, No. 302, said Burnsville has opportunities in incubating â&#x20AC;&#x153;microbusinesses,â&#x20AC;? and called for greater use of social media and other means of promoting the city. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve heard me say, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s promote, promote, promote,â&#x20AC;? McCartney said. Filing for the special election closed May 27. Candidates wanting to withdraw from the race had until Wednesday at 5 p.m. John Gessner is at burnsville. thisweek@ecm-inc.com.

him,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a gem.â&#x20AC;? Yeboah won the Coskran Award in the alumni category. Student winners are BHS senior Trae Boldthen and junior Elizabeth Stradtherr. Both volunteer at Hidden Valley Elementary. Parent winners are Katie Iomazzo of Rahn Elementary and Christine Zrust of BHS. The community winner is Muriel Anderson, who volunteers at Sioux Trail Elementary. The employee winner is Kathy Silvers, a first-grade teacher at Vista View Elementary. John Gessner is at burnsville. thisweek@ecm-inc.com.
