Fall uncovers more coyotes in Eagan by Jessica Harper THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

While relaxing in her Eagan home last Sunday, Deb Aune noticed an unusual “peeping Tom� peering into her window. The trespasser was a coyote standing a few feet away from her home on Blackhawk Lake. “That’s a little close,� Aune said. “It was the closest I’ve seen them. They usually don’t get within 20 feet.� Incidents like these tend to go up each November as foliage drops and the canines are more visible, according to the city’s website. Sightings also increase in February during mating season. Coyote sightings have increased since 2000 and have since leveled off, said Karen Grimm, Eagan animal control officer.

This is due, in part, to Eagan’s expansion near wildlife areas. Many sections of Eagan like Blackhawk Lake are close to the Minnesota River, Lebanon Hills and Fort Snelling State Park, where coyotes, turkeys, eagles, vultures and owls roam free. Several coyote packs live around the Blackhawk area and near Lone Oak Road and Highway 13, Grimm said. Coyote sightings Coyotes range in size from are up as fall 25 to 40 pounds, and their natuuncovers them from ral prey includes birds and small their wooded habitat. mammals such as mice and rabThe wild canines bits. rarely attack humans They are opportunistic animals but have killed cats and will go after small pets. and small dogs.

Aune said she doesn’t mind coyotes and believes they come with the territory of living on the city outskirts. “They haven’t bothered us,� she said. “... When you have a wooded yard, you get the animals.� Animal Control urges residents to report a time and location when spotting coyotes to help the agency keep track of them. The agency has so far received 20 calls this fall, which is about average, Grimm said. Email Jessica Harper jessica.harper@ecm-inc.com

Personal trainer is pushups guru Scott Sutherlin releases ‘The Push-Up Bible’ by Andrew Miller THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

For Scott Sutherlin, it all started in the weight room at Apple Valley High School. The 1990 Apple Valley grad says he was a full-on “iron junkie� back then, logging long hours amid the barbells and dumbbells to strengthen up for football

and wrestling. Under the tutelage of weight room manager Bud Bjornaraa, a former Minnesota Vikings strength coach, Sutherlin set three state powerlifting records in his age category, and took an independent-study weight training class that led to his certification as a personal trainer at age 18.

Now a personal trainer at Olympus 24 in Rosemount, he says his approach to fitness has evolved over the years. He’s dropped the “iron junkie� mentality and become a proponent of bodyweight exercises ideal for building muscle and burning fat – situps, pushups, pullups. See Sutherlin, 10A

Burnsville High School seniors Sam Hanson and Nick Skrogstad are bound together by Boy Scouts and marching band and a friendship that’s lasted since third grade. The best pals aren’t entirely alike. Hanson is 6-foot-4, Skrogstad 5-foot-9. Skrogstad plans to study welding and metal fabrication at Dunwoody Institute. Hanson is considering computer engineering and drafting at Normandale or the Art Institutes International Minnesota. And they might not have reached the apex of Boy Scouting together if Skrogstad hadn’t prodded his friend to stick with the organization. “At first it started out with encouragement from my parents and Nick here,� Hanson said. “Probably the first or second year it occurred to me that this is something that should be important,

Members of Troop 471, which meets at Prince of Peace Lutheran Church, the pair joined the approximately 2 percent of members who have earned Boy Scouting’s highest honor since 1911.

Just months after studying the issue, Eagan is one step closer to having a major telecommunications hub. Private investors plan to develop a 138,000-squarefoot data center called Connextion along Yankee Doodle Road west of Pilot Knob. Plans don’t include the Lockheed Martin property. “This is a significant strategy of the city to keep jobs here and grow jobs,� said Tom Garrison, city spokesman and liaison to the task force that studied the issue. A task force comprised of representatives from some of Eagan’s largest companies along with city and chamber of commerce officials has been studying Eagan’s broadband challenges since 2005. The center, which will be owned and operated by North Carolina firm Five 9s Digital, will provide

off-site data storage and disaster recovery options for telecommunications and Internet service providers as well as local and regional companies. It will build upon an already fiber-optic-rich environment in Eagan and will be the first multitenant, LEED-certified facility of its kind. Minnesota currently has only one major data center, located in Minneapolis, which funnels all telecommunications systems in the state. This presents some challenges that were recognized in a 2009 report by the Minnesota Ultra High Speed Broadband Task Force. Security was among them. If a natural disaster were to strike, the entire system could be in jeopardy. Building a second major data center will create additional security for telecommunication systems, Garrison said.

The project is estimated to cost between $75 million and $100 million to construct the facility, obtain tenants and install its critical equipment – all of which will be privately funded. If the City Council approves it, the project will be completed in 2012. Minneapolis telecommunications firm XO Communications has expressed interest in being one of the first fiber service providers in Connextion. The Eagan area stands to attract additional data center users due to the Upper Midwest’s cool climate and relatively low risk of natural disasters, Garrison said. Five 9s Digital representatives could not be reached for comment in time for publication. Email Jessica Harper at: jessica.harper@ecm-inc. com

Burnsville Road projects push budget up, but city taxes are coming down by John Gessner THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

Burnsville’s proposed city budget would rise from $81 million to $88 million next year, mainly because of two extra-large road projects, according to the city. But total city taxes would fall by 3.6 percent in 2012, thanks to a change in state tax law. The city’s $33.6 million general operating fund would remain “essentially flat� next year, and 1.5 jobs would be cut, City Council members were told at a Nov.

15 budget work session. A public open house on the budget and levy will be held from 4 to 6 p.m. Dec. 1 at City Hall. Council adoption is scheduled for Dec. 6. The road projects boosting the budget numbers are the long-planned Highway 13/County Road 5 interchange upgrade and the extension of 12th Avenue through an unused portion of Black Dog Park. That project will improve emergency access to Xcel Energy’s Black Dog power plant and take heavy truck traffic

off neighborhood streets during Minnesota River flooding. The city is contributing $6.3 million to the $40 million 13/5 project. The 12th Avenue project is estimated at $5.5 million. The city has been negotiating with Xcel to assess the entire cost to the company. The city also plans to assess Xcel for the $590,000 cost of replacing the west bridge on Black Dog Road. The proposed 2012 levy, totaling $26.86 million, holds the line on new taxes to $209,110 – a 0.8 percent

$100,000, after contributions to the fund were slashed in recent years. Spending initiatives also include continuation of an annual $50,000 set-aside to prepare for an emerald ash borer infestation. Officials say the infestation and need to remove and replace diseased trees are inevitable. Job cuts planned for next year would claim a full-time position at the GARAGE teen center and a half-time licensing and elections coordinator. Budget and levy information are posted on the city’s website, www.burnsville.org.

$202,000 (which reflects a 2.7 percent drop in value from 2011 to 2012) would have a decrease in city taxes of about $100, according to the city. But lower city taxes could be offset for homeowners who received the market value credit, which will no longer be paid. City taxes on $1 million in commercial/industrial property would fall by about $120. There are a few new spending initiatives for next year. The city plans to spend $157,000 to retain two police officer positions that had been funded by an expiring federal grant. The city plans to boost its parks capital fund by

That program was eliminated by the Legislature last year. Burnsville officials say the program was underfunded for years, requiring it and some other cities to shoulder the cost of the state-mandated tax credit. Subtracting the 0.8 percent tax increase from the 4.4 percent decrease in taxes previously levied to fund the tax credit leaves a total levy decrease of 3.6 percent.

Parents now have another preschool option in Eagan. Faith in Christ Fellowship, a nondenominational Christian church, opened SonShine Preschool in October for children ages 3 to 5. “We wanted to come to Eagan to support the community and we felt a preschool would be one good way to do that,� said the Rev. Kathy Swanson, church pastor. Families do not have to be members of the congregation to enroll their children in the preschool located inside the church at 670 Diffley Road. Church officials had hoped to open the school earlier in the year but were delayed by the state government shutdown. The faith-based preschool is open from 9 a.m. to noon Monday through Friday. Parents can choose from several options that enable them to send their children either two days or three days a week. Instruction combines play and structured learning

erwise recipients must be referred by a social worker. The clothing and food shelf will be open from 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 19. The church is also accepting donations for its Thanksgiving baskets,

which will be donated to M.O.M.S. (Making Our Moms Successful), a nonprofit in Burnsville. To donate to either cause call (651) 717-5184. Email Jessica Harper at: jessica.harper@ecm-inc.com

Faith Nachtigal, 5, identifies letters on a book for her teacher Judy Hein at SonShine Preschool in Eagan. that teaches basic academic skills as well as social skills. “We offer a really good program,� said Karri Nachtigal, director of the school. In addition to its standard preschool setting, SonShine offers a Just 5’s class that focuses on kindergarten readiness and a just 3’s class that helps 3-year-olds adjust to a classroom setting. Only one child is enrolled at SonShine to date, but Nachtigal said she believes enrollment will pick up as more people hear about the school.

Once enrollment picks up, Nachtigal plans to keep the child-teacher ratio low at 7-to-1. An open house will be held Dec. 6 for families interested in learning more about the school.

Opinion Guest Columnist Vista View shouldn’t be judged by test scores alone by David Limberg SPECIAL TO THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

Recently, Vista View Elementary School in Burnsville was highlighted in this paper for not meeting Adequate Yearly Progress under guidelines of the No Child Left Behind law. While it is true that Vista View has failed to meet some of the subgroup testing standards specified in this arcane law, the Vista View School community exceeds more important standards of building a high quality learning environment for the students of Vista View. Vista View is a school where the entire staff is engaged with all of the students. The teachers of all grades and topics, the principal, Dr. Susan Risius, and the incredible office staff know the students by name and their families.

This focus on the whole child based in genuine care and cultivation is not found in a failing school. Walking through the halls of Vista View on any school day you can see students’ science, language, math, and art projects displayed proudly for the entire community. Encouraging guidance posters and signs tout important life concepts like responsibility, caring, and character. Photo collages of students both past and present show students of different races and cultures together playing, posing, and working together. Parent volunteers frequent classrooms, the lunchroom, and hallways to assist teachers in class sizes that are too large. To help encourage and recognize positive

behavior, a Tiger mascot roams the halls recognizing students who demonstrate “ROAR� (Respectful, On task, Achieving, and Responsible) behaviors throughout the school. The principal, teachers, staff, and parents volunteer their time to come together in positive and purposeful ways to create a learning culture that serves all the students in a respectful manner. I have attended various Vista View events like Math Night, Literacy Night, the Extravaganza, field day, school dances, Veterans Day celebration, Vista View Open House, and many other outside-of-the-classroom events. Community spirit is in full display with families, teachers, and most importantly students coming together to continue learning through these outside-the-class-

room educational forums. Two of my children attend Vista View and they are having a wonderful educational experience. Their teachers have been positive role models for each of them. They know my child’s strengths and weaknesses, set high academic and behavior expectations for them, and foster a positive learning environment in every sense of the term. Having high academic benchmarks is important and standardized testing is a component of those benchmarks. Vista View is not perfect, but no school, no business, no organization (i.e., U.S. Congress) is. However, judging the overall performance of a learning community based on test scores alone takes too narrow a perspective of Vista View.

I encourage anyone to spend a day or even an hour at Vista View Elementary. You will come away with a strong sense of a positive community that cannot be improved by getting rid of the principal or reorganizing the staff as suggested by NCLB. These draconian measures will not lead to improved test scores or a better learning environment for my children or other students attending Vista View. They will only deter, delay, and damage a great school striving to get better among many great schools in the Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School District. David Limberg is a Burnsville resident with two children who attend Vista View Elementary School. Columns reflect the opinion of the author.

Keep off-year school levy elections in place by Don Heinzman THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

Despite opposition from some Republican leaders, the majority of voters in Minnesota school districts approved 80 percent of the school operating levy elections on Tuesday, Nov. 8. That’s the best approval rate of these special levies since 1997. All but one of the renewal of existing levies were approved as voters reacted to the need for funds that could have resulted in fewer teachers and higher class sizes. A 10-year, $10 million (estimated) annual levy was renewed in the Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School District with about 67 percent approval. Republican state Rep. Patrick Garofalo, House Education Finance Committee chairman, who was one who raised questions

about the need for such levies, intends to introduce a bill so that school districts could not hold operating levy elections during the off-year voting. The Farmington representative reasons that if they were held during presidential elections, for example, more people would vote and defeat them. He says the light voter turnout (10 percent of registered voters) proves his point about not having enough people involved in decisions that will cost taxpayers millions of dollars. Garofalo chastises local school districts for conducting off-year elections that are less transparent and involve fewer people in the election process. Off-year elections, however,

are more transparent and open because the school’s message does not get lost in the clutter of messages as in the presidential elections. It’s also not the school districts’ fault that voters are too lazy to cast ballots in odd years. As for the timing of the operating levy elections, Garofalo says school officials now can use the mailed ballot to conduct an operating levy election and his bill would not change that. It seems odd that Garofalo, who belongs to the party that advocates for local control, would institute a law that takes control away from school districts that may be in desperate need of immediate funding provided by the flexibility of having an off-year election. Changing the law banning offyear elections should be resisted.

Moreover, renewing operating levies should be done by elected school boards just as cities and counties and even states can approve tax levies without a vote. Elected school boards are just as capable of deciding needed revenues as city council members and county commissioners. Who knows better the need for revenues than the elected officials who keep saying run the schools like a business? While the Legislature has frozen the per-pupil aid on the formula for the last several years, it did provide $650 million more for this biennium, more than enough to pay the borrowing costs during the delayed payments of $2 billion to the schools. Part of that $650 million wisely went to help fund special education and closing the gap between what the

state pays and what local taxpayers have to subsidize. While other departments were cut, the Legislature funded education for the biennium at $14 billion. During this severe economic downturn, funding education is crucial for having an equitable and effective K-12 education system. Now is not the time to prevent local school districts from having off-year operating levy elections when the quality of the students’ education is at stake.

Letters Unsportsmanlike conduct To the editor: Last week’s sectional girls volleyball playoffs between Lakeville North and Eagan left me absolutely aghast. My neighbor and I attended to cheer on the Eagan Wildcats. The behavior of the “host� team and its supporters left me wondering where the sportsmanship went.

All gender issues aside, sportsmanship, according to Random House Dictionary of the English Language, assumes a level of fairness, courtesy and sportsmanlike conduct, specifically “one who exhibits qualities especially esteemed in those who engage in sports.� But I didn’t see much of that. Rather, the behavior I witnessed from the “host� team was name-calling and intimi-

dation. Host warm-ups went into “overtime,� which cut short Eagan’s warm-up time. Several supporters of the host team yelled defamations at Eagan’s team and its supporters. The word “hate� was used frequently. It’s time to call it what it is: bullying. With so many anti-bullying measures being taken in our schools, one might hope that it would

extend to school-sponsored sports as well. Time for all schools/teams to check out their codes of conduct, right? One last thought: Lakeville North was the home team of record. By definition, aren’t “hosts� supposed to be welcoming? MARILYN JOHNSON Eagan

Get involved with meal packing To the editor: I am involved with a community event that is called South Metro Meal Packing (a subsidiary of Feed My Starving Children). It is in its inaugural year, and we have great expectations for the results. Local folks may be familiar with Feed My Starving Children and even may have helped in previous campaigns. The South Metro Meal Packing event is taking

 

 ďż˝ 

place Feb. 7, 2012. Each meal packed costs only 24 cents, and each volunteer generally packs 200 meals per shift worked. There are many volunteers who are willing to pack for free, but the funds to pay for the food costs ($48 per person) come up short. This pay-as-you-go discourages many volunteers from helping to pack the meals. In order to keep the momentum going for the African kids and other worldwide children who may be starving, local businesses and churches in the south metro area are being rallied to sponsor those who have little funds available to help. I am helping with this sponsorship. The facilities only for the packing are being donated by Prince of Peace Lutheran Church and are being donated because the church is having its own event following the South Metro Meal Packing Community Rally. By blending them together the

costs can be kept minimal, with more food ending up in those starving children’s tummies. Please seek help of monies and even packing participation from your Rotaries and other business acquaintances who may be willing to contribute. So far I have had good reception from local businesses and churches that are willing to help sponsor those unable to bring money for their packing efforts. Many of the businesses and churches are offering their $48 per participant and packers on top of additional funds. If your heart is touched by this effort, please contact Gary Orris at (952) 607-8157 or garyorris1@gmail.com, or me at rsjoquist@burnsvilletoyota.com or (952) 435-8200.

Lightning fall to Eden Prairie 3-1 in state final by Andy Rogers THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

The Eastview boys soccer team trailed opponents for only more than a few minutes all season, going 21 straight games undefeated before its 3-1 loss in the Class AA state final on Nov. 3. The Lightning found themselves in an odd position trailing 1-0 for more than 75 minutes against Eden Prairie at the Metrodome in Minneapolis. As Eastview’s shots went wide or directly at the Eden Prairie keeper, and Lightning players’ anxiety grew stronger as the clock ticked away. After Eden Prairie tallied its first goal in the first four minutes of play, the

Eagles played as many as six defenders and swarmed Eastview’s leading scorer Mathew Gweh every time he got near the ball. “They used their depth to their advantage,” Eastview coach Scott Gustafson said. “We thought we could take advantage of some of their substitutions, but there really wasn’t much of a drop off.” Gweh scored an unassisted goal for Eastview 20 yards out with less than a minute remaining, but the team already trailed 3-0. Coming off a hardfought 2-0 victory over Minneapolis Southwest in the state semifinal Nov. 1, Gustafson noticed some lethargy in the legs of his players.

“The boys gave it their all, but I don’t know how much left they had in the tank,” Gustafson said. Frustration set in during the second half. Lightning players committed 17 fouls and two players were given yellow card warnings. Eastview was out shot 17-7, but keeper Sam Ruelas made a number of key saves. His status was in doubt prior to the game because he was hit in the head during the semifinals. He was checked out by two doctors for 40 minutes on the day before the final and he was cleared to play by Minnesota State High School League officials prior to the match. “It’s unfortunate we didn’t put him in a better

They battled for each other for 22 games. Unfortunately for one of those games we came up short and it happened to be the last one.” He praised the Eastview fans who spent the after-

noon singing and cheering even when the outcome was settled. School officials estimated there were 1,400 Eastview students in attendance, the most for any state final team. Ruelas, Gweh, Mike Bonderud and Joe Karam were named to the 2011 Class AA Minnesota State Boys Soccer all-tournament team. Eastview finishes its season with a 20-1-1 record.

Swimmers anxious to dive in at state meet by Andy Rogers THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

Several girls have a goal of coming home with a medal around their neck and a new personal record after the Class AA state girls swimming and diving meet this weekend at the Aquatic Center at the University of Minnesota. Girls have been preparing for the meet by tapering their workouts over the past few weeks. “They will load up on the carbs, get good sleep at night and on the day of competition will shave down and put on their racing suits,” Eagan head coach Steve VanDyne said. It’s the time to do their best. The Aquatic Center is

one of the fastest pools in the country. “Pools vary in how they were made,” VanDyne said. “The depth of a pool matters, where the jets are to circulate the water all make a difference.” The gutter system and depth help reduce and control waves. “In high school the girls always want to swim at the U, so they work very hard to get this opportunity,” Rosemount coach Tami Carlson said. People take advantage of the water’s physics by going all out. The training is done. Now it’s all execution. Rosemount won the Section 3AA title Nov. 11 with Woodbury in second, 16.5

points behind the Irish. “We knew the meet was going to be very close and there was no room for errors,” Carlson said. “After the 200 free relay it looked like we could lose the meet by a point or so but then our breast, back and 400 free relay really pulled it together and knew they had to have their best swims to get back in first place for our section.” The Irish ended with 32 out of 35 events finishing in the top 16. Seven individual events and all three relays qualified for state. Eagan finished in third with four events and two relays qualifying for state. “Everyone improved on times both in prelims

and finals,” VanDyne said. “Eagan had one of the best tapers of all the teams in our section.” Area qualifiers include: Rosemount: 200 medley relay; 200 freestyle relay; 400 freestyle relay; Megan Wenman, 200 freestyle, 100 freestyle; Beth Wenman, 200 IM, 100 backstroke; Olivia Johnston, 100 breaststroke; Claire Tolan, 500 freestyle; Elyse Griffith, 100 backstroke. Eagan: 200 medley relay; 200 freestyle relay; Nicole Stevens, 200 IM, 100 breaststroke; Abby Zenner, 50 freestyle; MacKenzie Heller, 100 butterfly. Burnsville: 200 medley relay, 400 freestyle relay; Anna Elling, 200 IM, 100

butterfly; Teresa DiGregorio, 100 butterfly, 100 breaststroke; Angela Le, 100 butterfly, 100 backstroke. Eastview: 200 medley relay; 200 freestyle relay; Michelle Watkins, diving; McKenzie Hanegraaf, diving; Kristin Podratz, 100 butterfly. Apple Valley: 200 medley relay; Delaney McDonald, 200 IM, 100 breaststroke; Katherine Wright, 50 freestyle, 100 backstroke; Stephanie Bierman, 100 freestyle.

Eagan author chronicles state hockey tournament Fun facts and trivia from 67 years of boys hockey fill Jim Hoey’s book ‘Puck Heaven’ by Andy Rogers THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

BEYOND THE BOXSCORE

One thing Jim Hoey likes to do is talk hockey. He found himself coming across so many fascinating stories and lore, that he figured he may as well compile them. A retired teacher living in Eagan, Hoey has spent the past few years enjoying his new line of work, writing about sports. His recently released “Puck Heaven,” a book of trivia about the Minnesota state boys hockey tournament, chronicles some of the more fascinating nuggets stretching back to 1945. He answers the question of what team scored in overtime and still lost? Who coached two different teams in the same tournament? What school has played for a state championship seven times and never won? He even touches on high school hockey history from the south metro. Few people will ever forget the 1996 semifinal game between Apple Valley and Duluth East – a game that broke

all kinds of records. Any time a state tournament game goes into overtime, announcers are quick to remind people that the game can last five overtimes, like it did in 1996. “It was the longest game ever and the best game I’ve ever seen,” Hoey said. “It was just incredible Apple Valley came back to win the state title the next day.” He reminisces about the days of Mark Osiecki and his father, Tom, coaching Burnsville to two state titles in 1985 and 1986. One of his more interesting facts comes from Farmington, where Hoey was a teacher. Amber Hegland had an assist in the Class A consolation tournament in 1994 as the only girl to ever score a point in the boys state tournament. There’s also a little insight into why things are the way they are today. Back in the days of the Tier 1 and

Tier 2 tournament in the early 1990s, Rosemount won one game all season, but advanced to state. “It was controversial back in the day,” Hoey said. “Coaches would rank the top eight teams in each section and the other teams would play in Tier II. The problem was you would have really large schools in there with bad years. You win three games and you get to state. Two years later they switched to Class A and AA based on enrollment.” As a lover of writing, history and high school hockey, “Puck Heaven” was an pleasant book for him to write. He grew up on the Iron Range where he played, coached and watched high school state tournaments. Few high school state tournaments draw the kind of attention and general fan interest as the state hockey tournament. Even if your hometown team isn’t involved, fans bus in from every corner of the state to watch. The general attendance total since 1945 is

more than 5 million. There’s plenty of material; at least 294 pages worth of trivia. To research the book, he acquired the programs from all the state tournaments, read newspaper accounts and acquired information from the Minnesota State High School League. His favorite sources were people who experienced the state high school hockey tournament. “At lot of it was just by talking to people,” Hoey said. “I spent a lot of time debunking myths. If you change something, people aren’t happy. I think it’s pretty accurate. In some cases you get contradictory information. Sometimes the information gets mixed up like trying to figure out which brother scored a goal. The report would just list his first initial, but there were two brothers with the same letter in their first name.” Common problems for sports journalists, but he would know. He used to work for the Rosemount Town Pages. Hoey enjoyed talking

to many former hockey coaches, players and fans the most. “It’s just so enjoyable to meet some of these people and talking about their experience,” Hoey said. He spent last winter researching, verifying sources and broadening people’s perspectives while typing away. “I’d wake up and all of a sudden the sun is down,” Hoey said. “It was a lot of fun.” He also wrote “Minnesota Twins Trivia” published in 2010, in time for the opening of Target Field in Minneapolis. He hopes to write more. While people can purchase the book at local stores, Hoey would prefer phone calls at (651) 9947870 or email at ajehoey@ comcast.net. He likes to talk hockey and you just might get an autographed copy. He will be at the Eagan Barnes & Noble from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Dec. 17. Andy Rogers is at andy.rogers@ecm-inc.com.

Last season, a bumper crop of south metro girls hockey players went on to lace up their skates with Division I teams. With those girls now in college, it has left the South Suburban Conference open for new cultivation of hockey talent.

Burnsville The Blaze went through some tough stretches last year with three, four-game losing streaks. It was a minor letdown after winning the Class AA state consolation title the year before. The good news is Burnsville has most of its team back, including Jenny Maloney, Alexa Pearson and Paige Skaja. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are stronger at every position this year,â&#x20AC;? coach Bruce Anderson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I challenged the girls to come back stronger, faster and just plain better than they were at the end of last season. They are.â&#x20AC;? They are a young team and they are having fun. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to be at our best when we go into the playoffs,â&#x20AC;? Anderson said.

Eagan The Wildcats have consistently been one of the top teams in the south metro since girls hockey became a varsity sport. It appears that isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t going to change any time soon. Megan Wolfe leads a hungry Wildcat team as one of the top junior forwards in the state. She has Shelby Williams with her on the top line along with newcomer Brooke Madsen. Defenders Kendra Callister and Megan Juricko will provide a strong presence at the blue line. Goalie

Emma May will try to keep the puck on the offensive side. The Wildcats lost eight seniors due to graduation last season, but they feel like they should be contenders come February. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We might have some growing pains early but hope to peak when it matters,â&#x20AC;? co-head coach Jeff Kolehmainen said. During the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first game of the season against Henry Sibley on Saturday, the team broke a 1-1 tie after the first period with a huge effort from the veteran players. Wolfe ended with a hat trick and five points for a 6-1 win.

Apple Valley As one of the emerging teams in the South Suburban Conference, Apple Valley has high expectations for 2011-12 after netting six wins last season. With 14 letter winners returning, it looks like the Eagles will keep moving up with a deep and mature roster. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We surely wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t every game, but should be able to compete with any team this year if we are prepared, execute and compete,â&#x20AC;? head coach Don Erdall said. Erica Power, Rachel Goodman, Hailey Sampson and Liz Hermes have laced up the skates for another season hoping to climb up the conference standings. The line of Hermes (three goals, one assist), Goodman (two goals, four assists) and Power (two goals, four assists) have combined for 15 points after two games this season. Six other returning forwards combine to comprise a mature offensive core that looks poised to score many goals. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We roll three lines that are all capable of scoring

goals and also play solid, fundamental defense,â&#x20AC;? Erdall said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The defensive core goes very deep, and our goaltender looks ready to have a breakout year.â&#x20AC;? Sampson begins her first year as the top goalie. So far she has a .908 save percentage. The defensive core is led by Brenna Smith and Bailey Hagert. After winning nine games in the past two years, the team still needs to believe it can win. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Winning breeds confidence, and right now we are very confident,â&#x20AC;? Erdall said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s how these girls react after a loss that will be the true measuring stick of how good we really are.â&#x20AC;?

Eastview Eastview fell one game short of qualifying for the Class AA state tournament last year, losing to Rosemount in the Section 3AA final. Courtney Kukowski, Delaney McKay and Taylor Feinhage are back hoping to win one more in 2012. Andy Rogers is at andy.rogers@ecm-inc.com.

for anything better,â&#x20AC;? Kamarainen said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was in heaven.â&#x20AC;? The Eagan resident and former human resources director for a Fortune 100 company opened the after-school theater program for children in grades K-8 this summer. The company is an extension of a program Kamarainen offered a few years back at Eaganâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pinewood Elementary, where her daughters attend school. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It hit me â&#x20AC;&#x201C; why donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t we have a drama program in elementary schools?â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I asked to start an after-school drama program at Pinewood, and within three days 80 kids had signed up, with a waiting list of 40.â&#x20AC;? The success of that first foray into childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s theater prompted her to offer the program at other area elementaries, and it soon snowballed into its current manifestation at the former Eagan church. Staffed by about a half-dozen Twin Cities theater professionals, it offers classes focusing on

acting basics, culminating in formal performances at the end of each monthslong session. The theater bug runs in Kamarainenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s family. Her initial inspiration for starting the childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s company came from a visit a few years ago with her great uncle, the Rev. James Cashman, a former high school drama teacher in White Plains, N.Y., and now an Onamia, Minn., resident. His pupils included Alan Alda and Jon Voight. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theater was my first love, and he reignited my love of drama,â&#x20AC;? said Kamarainen, who first got involved in theater in high school and college. When the Young Actors Theater Companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s current session ends in early December, Kamarainen plans to offer workshops on topics such as special-effects makeup and simulated combat, prior to the start of the full spring session which starts in late January. The company offers open enrollment, with

District 196 officials look to streamline fee payments online Holiday pancake by Jessica Harper THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

The Rosemount-Apple Valley-Eagan School Board is considering a proposal to streamline fee payments online. At the Nov. 14 board meeting, Finance Director Jeff Solomon recommended the district enter into a contract with TIES Fee Pay to provide an online payment system for all the districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fees. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We would benefit from better internal controls,â&#x20AC;? Solomon said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We would also experience efficiency for our customers.â&#x20AC;? The system would provide a one-stop shopping site for families to pay various district fees such as for athletics, community education and lunch. If approved, the system could

be ready within a year, Solomon said. District officials have been exploring online payment options since December. The district is â&#x20AC;&#x153;ahead of the market and ahead of the game,â&#x20AC;? Solomon said. Under the new system, the district would absorb credit card fees, which are currently passed to the user. TIES proposed a 3.89 percent transaction fee per payment. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Personally, I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great we do this,â&#x20AC;? said Board Member Rob Duchscher, adding that he is concerned about the district absorbing credit card fees. He suggested the district look to raise fees if the credit card fees become too costly. If the School Board adopts

the proposed system, fees would remain the same in the first year. District officials will examine cost factors the following year to determine whether to raise fees, Solomon said. The system would reduce the number of cash and check transactions made in District 196. Internal control compliance â&#x20AC;&#x201C; having cash and checks floating around the district â&#x20AC;&#x201C; was noted as a deficiency in the districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s audit report. Auditor Bill Lauter recommended at an October workshop that the school district limit the use of cash to improve controls. Email Jessica Harper jessica.harper@ecm-inc.com

Sutherlin/from 1A That shift in focus is evident in his recently released DVD, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The PushUp Bible,â&#x20AC;? which features Sutherlin demonstrating 50some bodyweight exercises, among them the â&#x20AC;&#x153;handstand pushupâ&#x20AC;? and the ominoussounding â&#x20AC;&#x153;impossible push-

Irish flair for book fair at Barnes & Noble

Thomas appointed to state integration task force District 196 Integration and Equity Coordinator Scott Thomas was one of six people appointed by Minnesota Commissioner of Education Brenda Casselius to serve on

NAMI parent training slated on Dec. 6

Formation of the task force was part of the final education bill that was passed during the 2011 special session in July. The task force held its first meeting Nov. 15.

Shamrock School of Irish Dance will host a book fair beginning at 9 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 19, at Barnes & Noble, 1291 Promenade Place, Eagan. There will be dance demonstrations from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Information: (651) 683-1955.

The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) of Minnesota will hold a free Parent Training Class from 6 to 8 p.m. on Dec. 6 in the Lone Oak Room at Eagan Community Center, 1501 Central Parkway, Eagan. The topic will be â&#x20AC;&#x153;Helping Students Succeed.â&#x20AC;? Child care is available for ages 4 to 14. To register, contact Suzette at (651) 645-2948, ext. 102.

Support group for families The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) of Minnesota sponsors free support groups for families who have a relative with a mental illness. Led by trained facilitators who also have a family member with mental illness, the support groups help families develop better coping skills and find strength through sharing their experiences. A family support group meets at 7 p.m. on the fourth Monday of the month at Advent United Methodist Church, 3945 Lexington Ave. S., Eagan. For information, call Connie at (952) 432-9278.

up.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Push-Up Bibleâ&#x20AC;? is the first in what Sutherlin plans to be a series of fitness DVDs. His goal is to turn his fitness expertise into a cottage industry of sorts â&#x20AC;&#x201C; akin to that of Jillian Michaels, the acid-tongued celebrity personal trainer featured on NBCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Biggest Loser.â&#x20AC;?

But heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not planning on modeling his persona after that of Michaels. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She seems to have one tool in her toolbox, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s yelling. You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t build a long-term program based on negativity and screaming,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sometimes you have to know when to hug â&#x20AC;&#x2122;em and hold â&#x20AC;&#x2122;em and

give â&#x20AC;&#x2122;em a pat on the back.â&#x20AC;? With his classes at Olympus 24 and the fitness boot camp he leads, Sutherlin said the focus is on positivity and teamwork. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of my talents beyond fitness is motivating and inspiring,â&#x20AC;? the Eagan resident said. Sutherlin also has au-

thored a book, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sit-Ups Suck!â&#x20AC;?, slated for release next year. And heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s started planning his second DVD, a fitness video geared to seniors. It doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a title yet, but he refers to it as â&#x20AC;&#x153;My Motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s DVDâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a reference to his momâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s insistence that he make a workout program for her.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like, you need to make me a DVD so I can work out all winter,â&#x20AC;? he said with a laugh. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Push-Up Bibleâ&#x20AC;? is available through his website, scottsutherlinfitness. com.

stad chose Troop 471 from among the four troops in Burnsville. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He had found the troop, and he was the reason I joined that troop,â&#x20AC;? Hanson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I hate to admit it, but I probably wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have joined that troop, or any other troop for that matter, if it hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been for him.â&#x20AC;? They credit Scoutmaster

Dave Somar with boosting Troop 471â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ranks from about a dozen active members to 50 or 60. The boysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; fathers are assistant scoutmasters. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are one of the highest producers of Eagle Scouts in the state of Minnesota,â&#x20AC;? Hanson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Another deal our troop is known for is we have the 2 millionth Eagle scout in our troop â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Anthony Thomas,â&#x20AC;? who earned the distinction in 2010, Hanson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He has brought a lot of great attention to our troop.â&#x20AC;? Still, the transition be-

tween Cub Scouting and Boy Scouting and the first year or two with the older boys is a time when a number of them fall away. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For the most part, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just a time issue. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m facing that right now with a lot of things,â&#x20AC;? said Skrogstad, a marching band percussionist and drumline member who is also on Burnsville Highâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Nordic ski team, shoots competitively with a Boy Scout rifle team in Richfield and runs his own yard-care and snowblowing business. Competing for Hansonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time are marching band (he plays trombone and tuba), theater (heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the assistant

sound technician for all the high schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s productions) and Hosanna Lutheran Church in Lakeville, where heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a volunteer working in social media and audio visuals. Scouting is still â&#x20AC;&#x153;well worth your time. Boundary Waters sums it up,â&#x20AC;? Skrogstad said, recalling a stormcrossed outing two summers ago. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We got stuck on an island for 24 hours,â&#x20AC;? Hanson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great time to play get-to-know-you,â&#x20AC;? his friend added. Their respective Eagle Scout projects will leave small but lasting marks on

the community. Hanson led a team that built a bench and a wall of 30 shelving units where skiers can store their stuff at the Terrace Oaks Park chalet in Burnsville. Skrogstad led a team that built an arbor at Ebenezer Ridges in Burnsville. It includes a cobblestone patio and steps leading to the parking lot of Prince of Peace. He dedicated the project to his late grandparents, Eva and Tom Deanovic, who lived at Ebenezer Ridge Pointe Apartments.

Lighting the way for youth Eagan businessman shares success with inner-city students by Jessica Harper THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

Eagan businessman Peter Honsa considers himself quite fortunate. He has a thriving company, a loving wife, six grown children and 21 grandchildren.

Yet to be completely fulfilled, the 73-year-old founder of Honsa Lighting felt he needed to reach out to those less fortunate than himself. For the past few months, Honsa has worked to make

a difference in the lives of inner-city children. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rewarding to give children background and exposure to opportunities they are not exposed to at home,â&#x20AC;? said Honsa, who See Honsa, 15A

Honsa/from 14A

Agenda

he worked for was sold, Honsa decided to leave the field to pursue a career in sales. Honsa served as national sales manager for GTE/ Sylvania, a Danvers, Mass., lighting company, for three decades. Then in 1989, he purchased a Minneapolis distributorship and founded Honsa Lighting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I decided I wanted to control my own future,â&#x20AC;? Honsa said. He moved the company to Eagan in 1991 and has since turned it into a family affair with his son, Peter Honsa Jr., who helps oversee the business and its 12 employees. While many companies have crumbled under the weight of the recession, Honsa Lighting has continued to thrive. The company generates between $3 million and $5 million in annual revenue and has consistently remained profitable. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing very well with the economy,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lighting is something ev-

eryone needs consistently.â&#x20AC;? Honsa credits his success to the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ability to diversify. Honsa Lighting carries a vast array of lighting fixtures and bulbs which it sells to numerous industries. Honsa took his students to one of his largest clients, Lifetime Fitness, to learn about energy-efficient lighting, which the health club uses at all its locations nationwide. Patrick Pineda, an eighth-grader at Risen Christ, said he was most fascinated by the fact that Honsa provides all the clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lighting except tanning bed lights. The company refuses to carry ultraviolet lights due to the potential health risks they pose. Lessons like these are among the most rewarding aspects of the program, Honsa said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If they take away just one little bit of knowledge, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a victory,â&#x20AC;? he said.

is among a dozen corporate executives who mentor students at Risen Christ School in Minneapolisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Powderhorn Park. The majority of students at the K-8 Catholic school come from low-income families who have little education. Of its 333 students, 95 percent qualify for free and reduced price lunch. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of our studentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; parents havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t graduated high school so this truly broadens horizons for atrisk kids,â&#x20AC;? said Fran Rusciano Murane, director of advancement and program manager for Risen Christ School. Honsaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work is part of Risen Christâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Imagine the Possibilities program, which is aimed at teaching seventh- and eighth-graders about different career paths. The program â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which is funded in part by an innercity education grant from the GHR Foundation â&#x20AC;&#x201C; was created last year to teach atrisk students about different careers and industries.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;This provides opportunities and hope,â&#x20AC;? Rusciano Murane said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You have to have both to succeed.â&#x20AC;? Imagine the Possibilities was named Program of the Year last year by the Minnesota Independent School Foundation. Though none of Honsaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s students hope to join the lighting industry, he has inspired many of them to think about their future. Eighth-grader Janessa Bijorgo hopes to become a lawyer, while Patrick Pineda strives to become an archeologist. Though several students have a career in mind, Honsa reminds them to be prepared to change their goals over time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most people change careers several times over their lifetime,â&#x20AC;? he said during one of their field trips. Honsa changed paths himself. As a young man, he strived to be a mortician and earned a degree in mortuary science from the University of Minnesota. But when the mortuary

Education Wind power energizes District 196 students Cedar Park fifth-graders studying wind energy, to build turbines this spring by Tad Johnson THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

About 100 Cedar Park fifth-graders stood with necks craned looking on in wonderment as the new wind turbine in Rosemount was activated last month. The sight of the 426-foottall structure will propel the studentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; research into wind energy as they build their own turbines this spring. Cathy Kindem, a K-5 science specialist at the math and science magnet school in Apple Valley, said the opportunity to interact with University of Minnesota scientists and students during the event at UMore Park is something you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t learn in books. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They were impressed first by the size,â&#x20AC;? Kindem

said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They were excited and enjoyed talking with the engineers and scientists.â&#x20AC;? The university paid for the fifth-graders to be bussed to the event, which included information stations staffed by U of M researchers affiliated with the Eolos Wind Research Station. One of the stations included a kit of a mini wind turbine, the likes of which the students will build this school year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Their enthusiasm was high,â&#x20AC;? Kindem said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They are looking forward to building their own wind turbines.â&#x20AC;? National Rural Electric Association grant funding will help cover the costs of the kits, which are being supplied by Pittsburg, Kan.-

based Pitsco. Great River Energy has provided the curriculum, which will be supplemented by sessions led by employees of Farmington-based Dakota Electric. The students have studied simple machines, but have a great â&#x20AC;&#x153;curiosity and wonderment how to construct somethingâ&#x20AC;? as large as the 2.5 megawatt turbine. Students will test how different blade shapes and configuration generate different levels of velocity and energy using kilowatt monitors. She said having a real wind turbine that is part of a nationwide research project is invaluable for keeping â&#x20AC;&#x153;genuine interest in the project.â&#x20AC;? The students will be able to access research find-

Kindem said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Students enjoy being part of a citizen sci-

ence project.â&#x20AC;? The studentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; study of wind energy is one in a series on renewable and nonrenewable resources that they have explored. Other areas have

included solar and water energy. Tad Johnson is at editor. thisweek@ecm-inc.com.

Students take center stage Valley Middle School students present â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Charlotteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Webâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; by Andrew Miller THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

Critical acclaim comes early for drama club members at Valley Middle School. Those who participated in the clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s production last spring, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Beauty and the Beast,â&#x20AC;? got their first taste of being on the receiving end of a standing ovation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pretty much every night we got a standing ovation â&#x20AC;&#x201C; it was awesome,â&#x20AC;? said seventhgrader Brooke Lewis. Lewis is back for more drama-club glory this year. Cast as kind-hearted farm girl Fern, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s among more than 100 Valley Middle School students involved as actors, tech crew members and backstage helpers in the clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s latest production,

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Charlotteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Web.â&#x20AC;? Nearly two months of after-school rehearsals in the Valley Middle School cafeteria â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which also serves as their performance hall â&#x20AC;&#x201C; culminate this week in stagings of the classic E.B. White story about a pig named Wilbur who is saved from being slaughtered by an intelligent spider named Charlotte. For the student actors, the club aims to build skills applicable to theater and beyond. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I love acting and the whole experience of being on stage. And it looks great on college applications,â&#x20AC;? said seventh-grader Claire Doty, whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cast as the spider in â&#x20AC;&#x153;Charlotteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Web.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;It helps you speak better â&#x20AC;&#x201C; better articulation, better

emotion and better volume,â&#x20AC;? added seventh-grader Ethan Elumba, who plays the lovable pig Wilbur in the show. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Plus itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great way to boost up your self-confidence. When youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in a play you feel like youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re part of something special.â&#x20AC;? School District 196 helps cover some of the cost, but much of the bill for each production is up to the club, with concessions sold during performances helping to pay for props, costumes, sound equipment, spotlights and other essentials. Students vary their rehearsal time depending on the part they play, up to 72 hours by the end of the performance run. And itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not just the actors putting in the

                      

hard work. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some of our crews worked almost as many hours to help the show behind the scenes,â&#x20AC;? said assistant director Jenni Hibberd, a Spanish

teacher at the school. All the hard work comes to fruition this week, with a 7 p.m. performance on Friday, Nov. 18. Tickets are $5 for adults and $3 for students

and senior citizens; children under 5 get in free. Andrew Miller is at andrew. miller@ecm-inc.com.
