Burnsville crime is up – but why? Aggravated assaults skyrocket; police also say adult foster homes are generating more crisis calls by John Gessner THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

The company — which operates 1,440 Big Lots stores nationwide and 88 Liquidation World stores in Canada — plans to open 38 more stores by Nov. 14, said Big Lots spokesperson Toni Fink.

Discount retailer’s ‘big’ expansion includes Eagan

An anomaly or the start of a trend? Police Chief Bob Hawkins isn’t sure why serious crime has spiked 8.7 percent in Burnsville this year after several years of decline. Particularly alarming, Hawkins said, is a 209 percent rise in aggravated assaults during the first half of 2011. Those are assaults involving significant injury or use of a weapon. Among other Part 1 crimes, rapes were up 63 percent in the first half of the year and commercial burglaries 166 percent, Hawkins reports.

Police are also dealing with a sharp increase in crisis-related calls fed by a growing number of unauthorized walk-aways by clients of adult foster care homes. City Council members are calling for stronger regulation of the homes and possibly fines for those with repeat problems.

Crime wave? Serious crime has fallen in Burnsville and nationally for several years, Hawkins said. He said he’s eager to talk to other police chiefs about their 2011 numbers. “Hopefully that was just an anomSee Crime, 6A

The nation’s largest closeout retailer recently chose Eagan as part of its latest expansion Big Lots opened a store Oct. 20 on 1284 Town Centre Dr. in Eagan. The 20,000 square-foot store is the third to open in Minnesota this year, and among 52 new stores nationwide. The company — which operates 1,440 Big Lots stores nationwide and 88 Liquidation World stores in Canada — plans to open 38 more stores by Nov. 14, said Big Lots spokesperson Toni Fink. Big Lots assistant manager D’Arcie Froelich said she believes Big Lots will complement other Town Centre businesses by offering items that have been discontinued. “People like to come in the store because it’s like a treasure hunt,” Froelich said. “They can find things here that no one else has.” By its very nature, though, once a discontinued item is gone, it’s gone for good. The closeout retailer has few direct competitors and Froelich said she believes Big Lots will face little competition in Eagan. “We’re not here to compete,” she said. “We are here to be a part of the Eagan economy.”

Burnsville man found guilty of murder

IN BRIEF Big Lots is located 1284 Town Centre Dr. in Eagan. A grand opening is set for 9 a.m. Oct. 28 at the store. The company hired 30 employees to work at the Eagan location. Big Lots differs from other discount retailers in that it sells nearly every kind of closeout, discontinued and overstock merchandise including clothing, home decor, furniture, electronics and nonperishable food. Though this business model works well for Big Lots and its consumers, it can present many challenges for manufacturers, said Lorman Lundsten, marketing professor and department chair at the University of St. Thomas. “It hurts manufacturers relationships with other retailers,” he said. Some retailers who pay full price feel they are being treated unfairly when they see Big Lots receiving discontinued merchandise at a significantly discounted price, Lundsten explained. Lundsten is also skeptical that Big Lots will complement its Eagan neighbors. “What you want for a shopping center is fairly similar eco-

Doseth said he Jonas Gerald didn’t see the shootGrice ing but heard gunshots as he ran for help. By the time Doseth returned, Grice had fled and Hartman was found lying in his own blood. The defense attempted to say that Doseth and Hartman attempted to trap Grice by closing doors to one of the car wash stalls, which triggered Grice, whom the court found suffered from paranoid schizophrenia, into shooting Hartman. “This was a shocking crime which senselessly took a life of a young man with a bright future,” said Dakota County Attorney Jim Backstrom in a news release. “The defendant had a history of mental illness and violence in his past and should never have been carrying a weapon.” Grice was originally charged with first-degree murder, which was dropped.

A Burnsville man was convicted on Wednesday of second-degree intentional murder after a Dakota County judge rejected his mental illness defense. Jonas Gerald Grice, 28, who pleaded guilty to the charge on Oct. 7, will appear for a sentencing hearing Jan. 4, 2012, after a pre-sentence investigation is completed. The sentencing guideline for intentional second-degree murder is between 29 and 40 years in prison. If the mental health defense would have been successful, Grice could have been sentenced to a state mental health facility. When Grice shot Anthony Hartman, 22, of Apple Valley, Grice claimed in his court trial defense that he was suffering from a mental illness to the extent that he did not know the nature of his actions or that they were wrong. During the trial, it was argued that Grice allegedly tried to pick a fight Tad Johnson is at editor.thisweek@ with Hartman’s friend, Bradley Dos- ecm-inc.com.

Other problem properties came before Country Village complex None reached same level of sanction as Country Village, whose owner has problem property in Shakopee by John Gessner THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

While one Burnsville apartment complex made headlines this month for mold, pests and disrepair, the city has a history of pressuring landlords to deal with problem properties. As buildings age, there may be more to come. After a disgusted City Council voted Oct. 18 to suspend the rental license for Country Village Apartments at 3809 Sibley Street, Fire Department officials hinted to reporters that

other properties are in their sights. The city isn’t naming names, Deputy City Manager Tom Hansen said. “Do we get complaints about other properties? Absolutely,” he said. “Are we looking at other properties? All the time. That’s what we’ve got a building inspections department for and a fire marshal for.” Millpond (now Willow Pond), Horizon Heights, Chancellor Manor, Connelly Estates (now Colonial Villa) and Charleswood

(now River Ridge) are examples of properties that have come under city scrutiny and been turned around, some under new ownership, Hansen said. “Every one of those we’ve just mentioned has turned around and become a success story,” he said. But none faced the level of sanction imposed on Country Village owner Lindahl Properties LP. The council action forbids any new rentals at the 138-unit complex for two months or until the complex is brought

up to city code. All rental licenses in Burnsville are up for renewal in December. City officials found dozens of property and fire code violations they packaged into 129 cases. Inspectors found 80 instances of mold and water damage; 98 instances of damaged doors, windows and tile, and holes in walls; 28 instances of faulty plumbing work and repairs; 28 instances of faulty electrical City of Burnsville photo work and repairs, as well as nonworking fans, air This photo, of mold growing in an occupied Country Village apartment, is one of dozens taken by Burnsville inspectors.

Arts center projected loss higher than last year’s by John Gessner THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

last year’s actual loss of $368,000, but an improvement over a $526,000 loss in 2009, the center’s first year of operation. “This could get better” before year’s end, BPAC Advisory Commission Chair Sal Mondelli told the City Council at an Oct. 25 work session. He noted that the center lost $75,000 in rental revenue for 2011 when School District 191 decided to close its Envision Academy arts magnet school. Otherwise, “We’ve done a very nice job of continuing to increase the revenue,” Mondelli said. BPAC officials are projecting a $366,000 loss in 2012.

Mondelli said the sale of naming rights for the facility or parts of it is being pursued, along with foundation grants. He and BPAC Executive Director Brian Luther were before the council to give a quarterly update on the city-owned venue. Luther began work three weeks ago after being hired by the center’s management firm, VenuWorks. The third BPAC director, Luther replaces Jon Elbaum, who left Aug. 31 to become executive director of the Troy Savings Bank Music Hall in Troy, N.Y.

Two Minneapolis men face felony robbery charges in connection with an alleged robbery outside a Burnsville hotel. Emmanuel Mohamed Robertson and Jeff Tyson, both 26, are charged with aiding and abetting simple robbery. The alleged incident occurred on Oct. 17. Police were called at about 10:40 p.m. to the Days Inn, 14331 Nicollet Court, where a hotel customer said he’d been robbed while standing outside. According to criminal complaints filed in Dakota County District Court, the customer said two men drove up while he was smoking a cigarette. One asked for directions and asked if he could use the man’s cell phone. After using the phone, the man pushed the customer to the ground, jumped on top of him and took the cash out of his left front pocket, the complaint said. When the man tried to get up, the assailant pushed him back down, the complaint said. During the incident, the customer heard one of the two men tell the other to “get the pistol,� the complaint said. The victim reported that the man in the passenger seat got into the driver’s seat, and the assailant got into the back seat before the vehicle left the scene. He was able to describe the men and the vehicle to police, who arrested the men. The victim identified Robertson as the assailant and Tyson as the man who drove off. The suspects had an amount of cash “consistent with the victim’s loss,� the complaint said. — John Gessner

As of Dec. 26, Mesaba Airlines headquarters will move from Eagan to Memphis, Tenn., along with an estimated 193 jobs that go with it, but other elements of the Delta regional carrier will remain. The announcement of the move was made in an Oct. 14 Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification letter to Eagan Mayor Mike Maguire. Of those who have lost their jobs, 35 people had accepted new jobs with Pinnacle as of Friday, according to Pinnacle spokesman Joe Williams. Williams said he expects more employees will be hired in other parts of the company by the end of the year. Headquarters employees had the opportunity to transfer to the Mesaba training center that will remain in Eagan. It is not known if the people working in Eagan will be able to transfer to Memphis. Of the estimated 600 jobs that will reportedly remain in Minnesota, they will be at the Eagan training facility, and Mesaba pilots and maintenance groups at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport. The headquarters, located at 1000 Blue Gentian

million in July 2010. Mesaba, which was founded in 1944 and went public in 1982, moved its headquarters from the Minneapolis/St. Paul Airport to Eagan in 2003. On April 24, 2007, Mesaba Airlines emerged from bankruptcy protection and was acquired by Northwest Airlines as a wholly owned subsidiary. Delta bought Northwest in 2008 and transferred employees to Atlanta. Mesaba is among several major employers to leave Eagan in recent years. Last year, Lockheed Martin announced it plans to close its headquarters in 2013. Delta Airlines closed the former Northwest Airlines headquarters in July. Maguire said he believes this trend is a reflection of current economic times — not the region. “It shouldn’t shake people’s confidence in Eagan or the metropolitan area,� he said. Maguire said the move will have little financial impact on the city and is confident a new tenant will be found for the property. Tad Johnson is at editor. thisweek@ecm-inc.com.

Since taking over the store, the couple have expanded the selection of local beers and wine, and began taking customer requests. The store also hosts regular wine and beer tasting on Fridays and Saturdays. Julie Chapman, a District 196 elementary education teacher, said she was eager to run a business in the city where she grew up. Though neither have owned a business before, Rob Chapman has a minor in business in addition to a bachelor of arts in exercise physiology from the University of Minnesota.

Shirley Jean Groves Age 70, died Saturday, October 22, 2011 peacefully at her home in Lakeville surrounded by family after a long and courageous battle with breast cancer. Shirley began life in Braggadocio, Missouri on November 30th, 1940. Born to a large, loving family, Shirley knew the meaning of resilience and the importance of love; values that would define her life as well as her passing. Shirley is preceded in death by her parents, George Ash and Rillie Ash-Mitchum, brothers Elmer, Alvie, Franklin, Cletus, and J.B. Ash as well as sisters Annie May and Margie Ann Ash. She is survived by her beloved siblings Opal Johnson (Taft, CA), Melvin Ash (Ruby) (Florissant, MO), Lula Hueppauff (Caruthersville, MO), and Freda Hite (St. Ann, MO). Shirley leaves behind her devoted husband of more than 51 years Thomas Alquire Groves, who was truly the great love of her life. She is survived also by sons Thomas, Jr. (Jacqueline) and Timothy (Heidi) Groves, daughter Kelly (Eric) Groves-Olson, grandchildren Sean Heath, Jennif er G r o v es , T a m a r a G r o v es , Amanda Groves, Amanda Gearty, Allison Groves, Fletcher Olson, Stella Olson, great-grandson Andrew Groves, sisters-in-law Virginia Ash, Edna Ash, Muriel Groves, Virginia Murray, Nina Breiner, cherished brother-in-law Larry Groves (Patti), and many beloved nieces and nephews. Of the lessons that can be drawn from Shirley's life, none will resonate more than the example she set in her death. She faced the end with unparalleled strength, uncompromising dignity, and a deep, unblinking faith that carried her confidently from this life to the next. She will be loved and missed by a community of family and friends that remains grateful for the impact she had on their lives. Shirley was laid to rest on Wednesday, October 26 at Lakewood Memorial Cemetery.

Opinion Thisweek Columnist Board was right on email decision, but went too far by Tad Johnson THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

I applaud the Farmington School Board for recently ending the practice of board members being able to respond to constituent email by copying each board member at the same time. The correspondence could be construed as violating the open meeting law, which says that no more than a quorum of board members can converse outside of public meetings regarding district business. I am confident that no intentional violations occurred in the past, but the board realized that perception is greater than reality and have ended the â&#x20AC;&#x153;reply allâ&#x20AC;? practice. They were also right when they cited that â&#x20AC;&#x153;reply allâ&#x20AC;? messages were problematic because such communication could further influence future votes on topics because a response might contain opinions of a colleague. I also agree with their assessment that when a constituent sends an email at the same time to all board members that a single response should be sent to that

constituent to fulfill their information request or saying something to the effect of: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thank you for your input. We will take your comments under advisement and address them at a future meeting.â&#x20AC;? I agree that the most accurate information should be shared with district residents, but the board in protecting information forgot about protecting the board membersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; right to express their opinions to the people who elected them. While I endorse most of their changes, the board went too far in how members will handle emails sent from a constituent to just one board member. Their solution was an agreement that board members would include the superintendent and/or the board chair on all responses to constituent questions by email. Including the board chair on such emails doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t remove the concern that a board member could potentially sway the opinion of another member (in this case only the chairperson) when included in responses to residents.

Including the superintendent on responses to constituent questions is fraught with problems, too. First, it turns the email response from a board member to a constituent into a public document because the communication is now between an elected official (a board member) and an appointed public official (superintendent). Those emails would now be subject to subpoena and public information requests. What if a constituent raises concerns that are personal or sensitive in nature or about the superintendentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s or board chairâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s performance? Under the agreement, the board member would be obligated to copy the superintendent or the board chair on the response when the constituent didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t prefer to send those comments to those people initially. The boardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s action could squelch criticism, constructive or otherwise, residents might want to forward to a board member regarding district leadership because they know it would be shared with that leadership. Copying messages to the superintendent and/or board chair

would violate the constituentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s trust that the email communication would remain confidential with a board member. As long as they are sharing accurate information, elected officials should be allowed to communicate with constituents freely, especially their own opinions on matters, regardless if other board members or district leadership agrees with them. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s democracy. The Farmington School Boardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s agreement would be like U.S. Rep. John Kline, R-Lakeville, agreeing to include Democratic President Barack Obama on all email responses to constituents. It would be similarly hard to imagine that the Burnsville City Manager Craig Ebeling and Mayor Elizabeth Kautz would have required the late Council Member Charlie Crichton to include them on email communications with constituents. Crichton was an outspoken critic of many council actions, such as the construction of the Burnsville Performing Arts Center. He was likely corresponding with many like-minded opponents of the PAC in his days on

the council. To include the mayor and city manager on such communication when people likely only wanted to communicate with Crichton would have violated a level of trust. My guess is that most district residents are not and will never be aware of the agreement among board members to include the superintendent or board chair on all responses. That is until they see that a board member responds to their email with a copy to the superintendent and/or the board. At that point, it could be a shock to the resident or incite a negative response. The board got several things right in their regulations regarding email, but I urge the board to revise their policy regarding email communication to allow board members to respond to constituentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; direct messages with a direct response with no other people copied.

Letters State can help businesses To the editor: Sen. Ted Daleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s letter in the Oct. 14 Thisweek paper told of visits to Eagan corporations. One statement in the letter was that state government takes away their incentive to grow and reinvest. As someone who

has managed a technology company for a number of years, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t understand what that general statement means. Shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t we stop selling lead toys to children, pouring mercury into our lakes, and shoddy financial system practices? The tech industry needs, first of all, talent, and the state should be playing a strong role in having

university and vocational schools educate talent. The welding company in his letter is surely having trouble finding welders if it is encountering the same lack of skilled workers that we and other companies in manufacturing are experiencing. Next, the state could help companies by keeping fixed costs down. The biggest of these is health

ďż˝ ďż˝ ďż˝   ďż˝ 

insurance. Ours doubled in the last five years. Did the life expectancy go from 80 to 160 years or are they curing twice as many diseases? We have to compete with Canada and Taiwan, among others, where this inflation is not occurring and the cost in this area is half or less. Daleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s position on this is that we should keep our constantly inflating health care method and do nothing about it. Another area where fixed costs have increased is the elimination of homestead credit on property taxes. This tax increase goes on people living in apartments and houses as well as the commercial buildings where they work. Daley and his party are directly responsible for this tax increase on both businesses and homeowners. Tech companies have to do real things for customers and the state has to do real things in higher education and other areas if they want to see these companies prosper. Minnesotaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s universities and vo-techs have been heavily damaged by politicians, especially in the last year. Borrowing money from K-12 schools to finance state government is also a terrible idea.

I congratulate Independent School District 196 for its recently announced progress in math and reading scores, and I am hopeful that scores in the more culturally and racially mixed classrooms will improve in the future. This is why I support Fay Coggshall as a member of the District 196 School Board. When elected, Coggshall plans to meet the changing face of our community with a more diverse workforce, one that reflects and is equipped to focus on the needs of our students. As the parent of former district students, Coggshall wants to protect our schools from the ups-and-downs of budget bargaining in government, by protecting our funding. Also, she plans to ensure a safe haven for all of our children to learn, safe from intimidation and harassment. We are a changing community, and Coggshall offers a new perspective in dealing with the issues and concerns that often arise with change. I feel that Fay Coggshall would be an ideal addition to the School Board in the Nov. 8 election.

election to the District 196 School Board. Duchscher has been a member of the School Board for over 11 years. During his tenure, Duchscher has worked hard in the areas of fiscal stability and curriculum excellence. From a fiscal standpoint, he is always looking for ways to save the taxpayers money. He pushed hard for five-year financial planning for the district as well as for the Budget Advisory Council. On the curriculum front, Duchscher has kept a focus on the core academics. As our recent state test scores have shown us, District 196 does a great job at educating our students. One other note is that Duchscher works in the commercial world and this has allowed him to bring his significant business skills into the education circle. He gives the district a unique perspective that otherwise the district would be lacking. Lastly, Duchscher represents everyone across this very large district. He travels to events all over this district and does a nice job in representing the entire districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s need. In short, please vote to re-elect Rob Duchscher for the District 196 School Board.

What issue do you think is most important to voters? Education funding is most important to voters. The state of Minnesota has fallen far short of its constitutionally-mandated duty to establish and make provisions to secure a general, uniform, thorough, and efficient system of public schools.

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important to bring a fresh perspective to the school board. We need experienced members, but we also need new ideas to meet new challenges. What issue do you think is most important to voters? District residents are concerned about meeting the needs of all of our students. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re concerned about more cuts to funding and programs that will diminish the quality of our districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s curriculum. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re concerned about meeting achievement goals, especially during these tough economic times. How do you intend to address these issues? Review of programs for maintaining an equitable distribution of funding must be part of our regular curriculum review process. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll protect education funding by building proactive, effective relationships with legislators. I support early childhood education as a means to closing the achievement gap by giving our kids a solid foundation.

African penguins (also known as black-footed or â&#x20AC;&#x153;jackassâ&#x20AC;? penguins) live on the South African coast, thousands of miles north of where most people assume penguins live. The waters are very cool year-round, but the air temps vary widely and can be very hot at times. The zoo plans to breed the penguins, which are endangered, as part of a Species Survival Plan.

As a result, we frequently requested mutual aid from neighboring agencies to help us handle the call load.â&#x20AC;? Like other city departments, police underwent budget cuts in 2009 and

2010. One strategy for dealing with the cuts, according to Hawkins, was reassigning the departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s three school youth-relations officers to traffic detail during the summer. Serious, Part 1 crimes are homicide, rape, robbery, aggravated assault, residential and commercial burglary, larceny/theft, auto theft and arson.

said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have had numerous complaints about living conditions with the apartments, including mold, significant leaks and damage, issues with window insulation, issues with appliances either not working or working improperly to the extent of putting the tenants at risk,â&#x20AC;? he said. The landlord has made â&#x20AC;&#x153;moderateâ&#x20AC;? improvements, Stahl said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To be fair, I would say it feels like a halfhearted effort at times. It feels like there are false promises given.â&#x20AC;? In Mankato, where Lindahl owns the six-story Mankato Towers Apartments, the city found mold and moisture in multiple apartments after responding to a complaint in August, said Jeff Bengtson, deputy fire director. The

conditioners, stoves and a refrigerator; and multiple instances of peeling paint, rotting wood and other exterior problems. Burnsville isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t alone. Lindahlâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hunterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ridge Apartments in Shakopee have been a major headache for that city. Owner Delores Lindahl was charged this spring with permitting a public nuisance, a misdemeanor, said Vince Stahl, the Shakopee police crime-free multihousing officer. She agreed to one year of probation with the condition she contract with a professional exterminator during that time, Stahl said. Bedbugs and numerous other problems have plagued the three-building, 128-unit complex, Stahl

Adult homes Walk-aways from adult foster homes have contributed to a 169 percent rise in â&#x20AC;&#x153;crisis-relatedâ&#x20AC;? police calls since 2008, Hawkins reports. Crisis calls have â&#x20AC;&#x153;ballooned in 2011, he said in an interview. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Over the past several months a number of adult foster care businesses have popped up throughout the city,â&#x20AC;? he wrote. Some clients of the

homes are mentally ill and/ or have severe brain injuries. Clients sometimes walk away without authorization, and some do it repeatedly, Hawkins said. Staffersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; calls for help wind up with the local police. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It eats up our resourcesâ&#x20AC;? looking for the clients, Mayor Elizabeth Kautz said at an Oct. 25 council work session. She also voiced concern about the concentration of adult foster homes within certain areas of Burnsville. There are 59 adult foster care licenses issued in town. To cut down on response time to the calls, police have asked staffers at the homes generating the most calls to report whether or not a â&#x20AC;&#x153;walkerâ&#x20AC;? poses a threat to others or to himself or herself. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We then respond accordingly,â&#x20AC;? Hawkins wrote. The homes donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t physically

restrain clients from leaving, he said. Council Member Dan Kealey suggested fining homes with repeat problems, like the city fines businesses with excessive false fire or burglary alarms. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great idea,â&#x20AC;? Hawkins replied. The councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s draft legislative agenda for next year calls on state lawmakers to regulate concentration of adult foster homes, provide adequate staffing and ensure that staffers are adequately trained for the level of clients they serve, City Manager Craig Ebeling said. Burnsville isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the only city with concerns. The Minnesota League of Cities is also seeking legislation, Council Member Mary Sherry said.

city issued an order for repair. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still ongoing, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nearly resolved,â&#x20AC;? Bengtson said. Lindahl also owns several rental buildings in Wayzata, said Don Johaneson, city building official. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have had very few problemsâ&#x20AC;? with them, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But generally, when we require something to be fixed, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fixed very quickly.â&#x20AC;?

will cooperate with them every step of the way.â&#x20AC;? In the case of Charleswood and Chancellor Manor, new buyers stepped in. Chancellor Manor was bought and rehabilitated by a nonprofit affordablehousing provider, with assistance from the Dakota County Community Development Agency. Charleswood, whose previous owner went into foreclosure, was bought by a firm specializing in distressed real estate and other assets. Now every unit is being upgraded. In some cases, the city has had success in coaxing improvements out of existing owners, Hansen said, noting that the former Millpond complex received â&#x20AC;&#x153;millions and millions of dollars of improvements.â&#x20AC;? In the case of Country Village and some others, three city departments â&#x20AC;&#x201D; police, fire and inspections â&#x20AC;&#x201D; have come together to apply pressure. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sometimes the drip, drip drip method of bringing more pressure to bearâ&#x20AC;? is the most effective, Hansen said. Many of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s apartment units predate sprinkling requirements, he noted. Apartments account for an â&#x20AC;&#x153;inordinateâ&#x20AC;? number of fires. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a large number of apartment units, over 8,000 in the city. Roughly a third of our residential units are rental units,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That carries with it a lot of challenges when theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re old. It requires more and more staff time. It requires staff time for fire inspectors, it requires staff time for building inspectors, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s getting more and more that way. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing their best to keep up.â&#x20AC;?

It takes money In the Country Village case and others, it comes down to money, Hansen said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It always comes back to that,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a very simple proposition. The Lindahls can rectify this situation by hiring some firms to go in there and do the necessary work. The city

Nexus of Halloween horrors Each year, Paul Chellsen transforms the yard outside his Apple Valley home into a haunted Halloween wonderland by Andrew Miller THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s that time of year â&#x20AC;&#x201C; things are about to get extra spooky on 136th Street Court in Apple Valley. Since 1992, Paul Chellsen has been scaring trick-ortreaters young and old with a haunted tour of his yard on Halloween night. Chellsen pulls out all the stops with his eerie seasonal display â&#x20AC;&#x201C; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s b r i m m i n g Paul with head- Chellsen stones, body parts, pitchfork-wielding ghouls. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a Halloween soundtrack playing in the background, and visitors are greeted at the gate by the menacing-looking Pennywise the Clown, one of several macabre lifesize dummies featured on the tour. Chellsen, frightfully attired, serves as tour guide. He enlists his own kids and their friends to help with the tours, and his wife, Kristina, becomes a fortune teller on Halloween night, entertaining guests before they enter the yard. Among the assortment of ghoulish characters visitors will encounter is Brad A. Werewolf Person. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was the original character in my yard,â&#x20AC;? Chellsen said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I used to drive around with him in the front seat before Halloween to freak

New this year is Demonica, a zombie that rises and falls from a pit-like depression in the yard. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Actually, this is my rain garden â&#x20AC;Ś but it can also double as a bloody pool for Demonica,â&#x20AC;? Chellsen said.

The display draws anywhere from 80 to 150 trick-or-treaters each year, Chellsen said. It takes about a day to set up, but he spends a few weeks tinkering with it to get just the right aura of eldritch horror. The public is welcome to check out Chellsenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Halloween display. The home is at 5690 136th St. Court.

Minneapolis South no match for Wildcats With 50-0 win, Eagan heads to Woodbury for Section 4-5A semifinal by Andy Rogers THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

When the Eagan football team wins, it wins big. As the No. 3 seed in Section 4-5A, Eagan made quick work of No. 6 Minneapolis South on Tuesday in the quarterfinals winning 50-0. The Wildcats led by three touchdowns in less than seven minutes of action thanks to two Michael Busch rushing touchdowns and a Cody Grovenstein 30-yard interception for a touchdown. By halftime, Eagan increased its total to 40-0. Busch ran for touchdowns of 15, 14, 2 and 8 yards. Winners of their last five of six games, the Wildcats have outscored opponents 205-14. “When we play well, we play really well,” Eagan coach Rick Sutton said. “We feel real confident about where we’re at.” The Wildcats lost their

first three games of the season to Lakeville South, top ranked Wayzata, and to rival Eastview, in a close overtime game. “It knocked us down,” quarterback Drew Bauer said. “We came out after with some big wins that gave us a boost of confidence.” Since then they’ve been on a run nearly beating Prior Lake and thumping Apple Valley, Bloomington Jefferson and Burnsville. “We lost to two quality opponents and lost two games where we made too many mistakes where we weren’t good enough to overcome them,” Sutton said. “We’ve really matured as a football team.” Perhaps its most impressive victory was beating Rosemount, the No. 1 seed in Section 3-5A, 28-7 on Oct. 19. Eagan racked up 202 yards rushing and 183 passing on a Rosemount defense that had given up less than

Eagan’s Michael Busch, No. 28, found plenty of room to run against Minneapolis South on Tuesday. 13 points per game. “You want to be at your best come playoff time and right now we’re playing our best football,” Sutton said. “It’s a game that obviously, district rivalry, a big game for these kids. We know these guys really well. But it was more about us and where we wanted to be at.” The team will play at No. 2 seed Woodbury at 7 p.m.

When the 2011 volleyball season opened, no one knew exactly how good the Eagan volleyball team was. They weren’t ranked in the top 10 in Class AAA by the coaches association, but there was cautious optimism surrounding the team. It turns out they are pretty good. The Wildcats went 22-4 during the regular season, won the Chaska tournament last weekend and finished tied for first in the South Suburban Conference. “It’s going better than I imagined it was going to be,” Eagan head coach Kathy Gillen said. It’s quite an improvement from a year ago when the program went 11-16. Gillen returned as the head coach following a threeyear break after leading Eagan to state titles in 1997, 1998, 2001 and 2003. “It’s just like the old days,” she said. “I’m tired. “This group of girls probably is my top four-five girls ever. They have neat personalities and they blend Photo by Rick Orndorf so well together. It’s been Apple Valley’s Matt Gilbertson, No. 7, makes a diving tackle of Bloomington Kennedy’s so much fun for me. It was James Ellis, No. 28, in the Section 3-5A quarterfinals on Tuesday. Apple Valley lost 28-0 a fabulous year. Hopefully, it’s not over yet.” ending its season with a 1-8 record.

With Gillen back and Taylr McNeil, an all-state player last year moving to town, the outlook improved. McNeil continued her dominance at the net with Eagan, and she has a solid group behind her, including Calleigh Steichen digging and Nicole Johnson setting. “There’s a lot of girls that step up at any different time,” Gillen said. “Taylr is a fabulous player and she has a lot of support.” Johnson has given the team a big boost from the setter spot. “She puts it right on,” Gillen said. “She will mix her stuff up enough and be deceptive. She can take a not-so-good-pass and get a pretty good set on it.” People really took notice when the Wildcats defeated Lakeville North, last year’s state champion and the No. 1 ranked team in the state at the time, by a score of 3-2 on Sept. 27. The Wildcats highlights also included wins over Apple Valley, Wayzata, Bloomington Jefferson, Centennial, Jackson County Central, Le SueurHenderson and Bethlehem Academy, all highly ranked programs.

Lightning, Irish clash set for Saturday Lightning edge Burnsville 14-7 in section quarterfinal by Andy Rogers THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

The Eastview football team will meet with Rosemount in yet another playoff game this Saturday. The two teams have played each other in the last three Section 3-5A final games. Rosemount won last year and in 2008. Eastview won in 2009. This time they will meet in the semifinals after Eastview defeated Burnsville 14-7 in the quarterfinals on Tuesday night. Eastview trailed 7-6 until the fourth quarter when Eric Krupke provided a spark with a 40-yard reception from quarterback Ryan Reger. Two plays later Krupke ran for a 3-yard touchdown with a little more than five minutes remaining. Keynon Phillips connected with Reger for the two-point conversion and the defense took over from there. Burnsville’s touchdown came in the first quarter off a 4-yard run by Jamond Bailey. Eastview answered in the second quarter when Reger con-

nected with Aaron Wesser for 5 yards, but the extra point was unsuccessful. Burnsville was held to 62 total yards, but the Blaze defense stifled several Eastview drives. It was a bit of a revenge game for Eastview, which lost to Burnsville 18 days prior, 36-29. Eastview coach Kelly Sherwin wasn’t surprised at Burnsville’s success against Eastview this season. His longtime assistant coach Tyler Krebs became the head coach at Burnsville this season. “He knows us better than anybody,” Sherwin said. “He knows the strength and weakness of our players. He knows what we’re going to try to do and, plus, he’s a good coach. He’s a worker guy. They’ll get it going. It’s not very fun playing him. I’d rather him be on our side.” The playoffs is a chance for Eastview to put the season in a more positive light. The team’s 3-5 record is below their expectations. “We’ve had a lot of ups

and downs,” Krupke said. “I think we should have been a lot better during the regular season, but I think this is our chance to come back and finish it.” The Lightning will get the chance to avenge another loss this weekend. Eastview will play at Rosemount in the section semifinal at 7 p.m. Saturday. Rosemount received the No. 1 seed and a first-round bye. The Irish started the season 3-0, but lost three of their next five games to Lakeville North, Lakeville South and Eagan, teams that are in different sections. Rosemount was undefeated against section opponents outscoring Bloomington Kennedy, Burnsville, Prior Lake, Apple Valley and Eastview by a combined 146-46. One of Rosemount’s closest games of the season was its 28-21 win against Eastview on Oct. 14. Nate LeMoine ran for 112 yards and two touchdowns and threw for 151 yards and two more touchdowns in the victory.

Eastview’s Keynon Phillips, No. 16, tries to break free from Burnsville’s Lucas Grossoehme, No. 48, in the Section 3-5A quarterfinals on Tuesday. Eastview won 14-7 to advance to the semifinal game at Rosemount at 7 p.m. Saturday. Turnovers played a big part with three Rosemount interceptions from Ben Sandoz, Micah Marshall and Jake O’Malley when Eastview was close to scoring. Eastview still had more first downs, passing yards and time of possession. “We know each other real well,” Sherwin said. “Both

teams respect each other. They do what they do and they do it well. We’re not what we were in the past. It will be interesting. We came up short. They made the plays, but I think our kids believe things can be different.” Andy Rogers is at andy.rogers@ecm-inc.com.

finals. Eagan was awarded the No. 2 seed ahead of No. 3 Lakeville North and behind No. 1 Lakeville South. All three teams have spent time ranked in the top three in Class AAA this season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all really good,â&#x20AC;? Gillen said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Even (No. 4 seed Bloomington) Jefferson, if they play well, they have a good chance. It comes down to who makes the most errors. Every team has the big hitters. I think we have a bit of an advantage with our setter, it certainly helps.â&#x20AC;? Eagan defeated North by two points in game five. South beat Eagan by three points in game five.

Volleyball/from 8A Gillen could sense the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s potential after the Chaska Tournament last weekend. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That was really the first time,â&#x20AC;? Gillen said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Even when we beat North I thought there was still so much we could improve on. This weekend it was one of those things where I thought theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re playing pretty well as a team right now.â&#x20AC;? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good feeling considering Eagan will begin Section 3AAA play as the No. 2 seed on Friday. The Wildcats will host the winner between Bloomington Kennedy and Simley at 7 p.m. Friday in the Section 3AAA quarter-

â&#x20AC;&#x153;If we play well, I love our chances,â&#x20AC;? Gillen said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sometimes I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have control over that with high school girls, but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what makes it fun. There are a lot of good teams out there.â&#x20AC;? Apple Valley has the No. 6 seed, Eastview No. 5, Burnsville No. 8 and Rosemount No. 9. They all played on Wednesday night in the first round. The top four seeds had a bye. The results were unavailable as of presstime. The section semifinals are scheduled Nov. 2 at the high seed and the final Nov. 5 at Simley High School.

Annie Young wants you to see what she feels. The Burnsville artist says the images in her paintings often come to her in dreams. Transferring those images to a canvas takes a special touch. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To me, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always about the feel,â&#x20AC;? said Young, who

lost her eyesight owing to complications from chemotherapy about 10 years ago. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have Annie Young to get my hands dirty â&#x20AC;&#x201C; I have to feel it through with my fingers.â&#x20AC;? Young, the featured art-

Annie Young is the featured artist at the Eastview Community Foundationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fourth annual Art Madness event, a fundraiser that includes a silent art auction showcasing the work of more than 75 artists ranging from professional artists to school children.

It was, at least initially, a form of therapy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I lost my sight, I just had this urge â&#x20AC;&#x201C; I had these images in my head that had to come out somehow,â&#x20AC;? she said.

IN BRIEF

For Young, who works primarily in acrylics, creating visual art presents some unique challenges. For one, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the color scheme. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s probably the greatest challenge â&#x20AC;&#x201C; I struggle with it,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most of my stuff is very basic colors, and thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so much layering.â&#x20AC;? Knowing when a painting is complete also can be tricky. She seeks input from friends and family â&#x20AC;&#x201C; relying

Young has work on display at Jo Joâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Rise & Wine in Burnsville and at the Box Gallery in Minneapolis. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s curated exhibits at Ring Mountain Creamery in Eagan, and regularly posts images of her paintings at annieyoungarts. blogspot.com. She balances her artistic endeavors with work and athletic pursuits. She works in marketing at the Burns-

ville Costco, and is a serious triathlete now training to compete in an Iron Man event. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s art, though, that provides her with an outlet unlike any other. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think that art in and of itself is meant to take people from where theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re at and move them forward,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think that when I paint Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m gifted with a vision to put on canvas. When people see it, I hope it will catapult them to a place of peace or joy.â&#x20AC;? Andrew Miller is at andrew. miller@ecm-inc.com.

The Rosemount girls tennis team placed fourth at the Class AA state tournament on Wednesday afternoon at the Baseline Tennis Center at the University of Minnesota.
