Eagan crash victim meets ‘heroes’ who rescued her Eagan woman was hit by wrong-way drunken driver on Highway 13 last November by Erin Johnson THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

It was a violent crash, a headon collision that folded the dashboard of Kelli Moberg’s car “like a piece of paper” and trapped her beneath it. She saw the other car only a moment before it hit her, just in time to brace herself for impact. The driver, who was legally drunk, had been traveling the wrong way on Highway 13 in Eagan, just north of Yankee Doodle Road. It was around 1 a.m. Nov. 14, and Moberg’s life was changed forever. Immediately after the impact she began assessing herself: She could wiggle her fingers and toes, so she wasn’t paralyzed. Her right eye wasn’t blind, just filled with blood that had trickled down from her forehead. Then she touched her head and realized that a third of her scalp had been ripped off. Her jaw was broken, her body riddled with fractures, and she was trapped inside her car. But she was alive. Moberg, an occupational therapist who works with children with traumatic injuries, was able to keep calm as rescuers arrived. When the first firefighters showed up to the scene, she said she felt instantly comforted. “I was so happy to see them,” the Eagan resident said. “I knew I was in the best hands possible and

I would be OK.” In all, 28 first responders worked on the crash – 18 firefighters, eight police officers, and two paramedics. By all accounts, it did not look good, Eagan Police Chief Jim McDonald said. He said one of the first responding police officers told him, “We were really worried about her.” It took about an hour to extricate her from her car, he said. “They had to cut the car in half,” he said. Moberg said she is eternally

grateful for the tireless work of rescuers that night. “(Firefighters) flawlessly removed me from my mangled car in a short amount of time, which I believe is a miracle, and they talked to me the entire time, which certainly helped me to remain calm,” she said. “The Eagan Fire Department and Police Department and Healtheast paramedic departments had excellent collaboration, and each was a vital link in saving my life.” Moberg, 32, was ultimately hospitalized for two months to repair See Heroes, 2A

Parents of students in District 196 want to see equitable reductions in athletics and activities by Jessica Harper THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

As the Rosemount-Apple Valley-Eagan School District faces looming budget cuts, residents say they worry about whether the district will treat extra-curricular activities equally and preserve core studies as they impose cuts. Residents who met in focus groups at Rosemount Middle School on March 8 said they favor the district’s proposed $3.5 million in budget cuts for next school year as long as cuts to sports and fine arts are examined equally. “We need to ensure there is more consistency in the funding to programs,” said Elaine Ste-

vens, a parent of a sixth-grader at Dakota Hills Middle School and a sophomore at Eagan High School. District officials are considering eliminating approximately 48 full-time equivalent positions, removing high school figure skating and increasing fees by $10 for all high school sports and fine arts. Several residents, including Stevens, said they were concerned some activities, such as band and ice skating, would be unfairly hit harder than others. “I will not be a happy camper if no one else has to make sacrifices,” said Cheryl Anderson, a parSee Cuts, 2A

Burnsville figure skater finishes first in France High school senior Kristin Kraimer competes on U.S. synchronized skating team that finishes first at French Cup by Jessica Harper THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

What do Nancy Kerrigan, Kristi Yamaguchi and Burnsville High School senior Kristin Kraimer have in common? They all represented the United States in world figure skating competitions. Kraimer had the rare opportunity last month to compete on the U.S. synchronized figure skating team which won the 2011 French Cup in Rouen, France. “It was a great accomplishment,” she said. “It’s

really cool to represent the whole country.” Kraimer said she swelled with pride as the U.S. flag was raised and the band began to play the national anthem. The team of 20, which is a member of the Braemar City of Lakes Figure Skating Club in Edina, competed against 11 other teams from eight countries. Kraimer has competed on the team since she was a second-grader. Over the years, Kraimer fell in love with the sport. “The added aspect of

synchronized skating makes it even more fun,” she said. “It’s a good way to build friendships.” Although she has competed several times in national competitions, this is her first time competing overseas. Kraimer’s team was able to compete in the French Cup by finishing among the top 10 teams last year at the national competition. In addition to the French Cup, Kraimer will compete from March 10-12 in the Synchronized Skating JuSee Skater, 11A

Telling the president how it is Burnsville CEO talks directly to Obama about challenges facing her business by Tad Johnson THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

In less than three months, Burnsville business owner Darlene Miller will be able to say she had a hand in developing a plan that will guide the country to economic recovery. At least that is what she and other members of President Obama’s Council on Jobs and Competitiveness hope to accomplish. Miller, the owner and CEO of Permac Industries, was one of a handful of people to speak directly to the president during an hour-long meeting Feb. 24 at the White House. During her time speaking to the group, which included the CEOs of General Electric, Southwest Airlines and Kodak, among others, Miller recounted her precision parts manufacturing firm’s “terrible” journey through the Great Recession. She told the president that her company, which makes parts used in space, medical and military industries, had to reduce its work force from 47 to 21, but she was pleased to report that number has re-

bounded to 38. “Probably the good news and the sad news is that we have become a lot leaner, and we can do a lot more with less people,” Miller told the council. She said the company would like to hire more people, but several barriers are in the way. Costs to operate the company are rising, including spending on equipment, raw materials, energy and medical care. “It is difficult to justify adding more people,” Miller said. Another barrier is that Permac Industries needs skilled employees to operate its complex and specialized machines. She said the business doesn’t have the time or funding to develop training like it did before. “We want to add business,” she said. “We have to add more skilled people. We do not find skilled labor to hire. They are not out there.” The president asked Miller if the company had sought to develop a training program with local technical colleges,

Permac Industries Inc. owner and CEO Darlene Miller told President Obama about the challenges facing her Burnsville company during the first meeting of the President’s Council on Jobs and Competitiveness in Washington, D.C. She is pictured here during a campaign event last year for Tom Emmer, who was the Republican candidate for governor. to which Miller responded that she had worked with colleges to identify programs. The challenge is that the equipment is very expensive and colleges don’t have the funding available to buy the machines. Miller said one option being explored is to host classes right at Permac.

ent of an Eagan High School senior. Staff cuts would include eliminating 26 middle school teaching positions, one parttime social work position, one school administrator position, six full-time equivalent district-level itinerant teacher positions, one full-time districtwide administrator, three FTE clerical positions, four FTE paraprofessional positions and four FTE positions from the facilities department. The middle school positions would be cut through restructuring made possible by the reduction in class periods, which was approved by the board in January. The district has already cut 152 jobs in the past two years as a result of limited state funding, District 196 Superintendent Jane Berenz said. The staff cuts for the 20112012 school year could be a combination of layoffs and attrition, said Tony Taschner, communications director for District 196. A recently approved incentive of $15,000 each for 74 teachers retiring early could prevent some layoffs since it resulted in a higher than average number of retirements, he said. All residents said they view

the job cuts as necessary due to the district’s current funding shortages. Apple Valley City Council Member Clint Hooppaw said he believes potential layoffs are simply a sign of the times, noting that private businesses face the same difficult decisions. Residents said they favor the district’s proposal to reduce transportation services, which would include increasing eligible service distances by one-half mile for all students. This change would not affect the district’s exemption for students living near busy streets, such as County Road 42 and Cedar Avenue, or transportation to magnet schools, which is paid with integration funding. A few district residents were in favor of increasing eligible service distances to two miles for all students, noting that it would help students exercise more. The district has resisted this in the past due to concerns about young students walking that distance. Leah Goldstein Moses, a parent of two Deerwood Elementary students, suggested that district officials should reach out to parents interested in forming volunteer crossing guard teams to help young students safely cross busy

roads. In addition to program, staff and transportation reductions, a $10 per day cut to substitute teachersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; pay implemented this school year will remain in place next school year. Becky Haage, a substitute teacher for District 196, said she felt district officials perceive the pay cut as â&#x20AC;&#x153;no big deal.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;That was a real slap in the face,â&#x20AC;? Haage said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;High school kids make more than us who went to college for four years.â&#x20AC;? Substitute teachers in District 196 earn $100 a day. Although District 196 will likely face cuts next school year, officials will be able to avoid cutting another $5 million by using federal education jobs funding that became available last year. Proposed budget adjustments for the 2011-12 school year will total $8.5 million, based on the assumption that state officials will cut education funding by 3.5 percent. This will be the third consecutive year the district will face budget reductions, which officials say are due to years of flat state funding combined with accounting shifts. The state has withheld $68 million in funding over the past two years, according to district officials. As a result, the district had to impose $10 million in budget adjustments for the 2008-09 school year and $15.3 million for the 201011 school year. When asked if they would favor a levy referendum next year to avoid future budget cuts, most residents in the focus groups said they would, but added that district officials would need to rework their message. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Too many people felt it was a threat (last November),â&#x20AC;? Hooppaw said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need to put a better message out there â&#x20AC;&#x201D; one that looks at the positive, not the negative.â&#x20AC;?

She also suffered a sprained ankle, knee ligament tear, mild concussion, and â&#x20AC;&#x153;many, many bruises.â&#x20AC;? She endured six surgeries and, unable to walk, required 24-hour care for weeks after she was released from the hospital. As she progressed in her recovery and began to walk again, Moberg knew she wanted to show her gratitude to those who rescued her. She wrote an impassioned letter to Eagan Fire Chief Mike Scott requesting a meeting with all of the first responders involved in her crash so she could thank them in person. On March 3, she got her wish. A gathering was arranged at the Eagan Police Department so she could meet them face-to-face. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re truly, in every sense of the word, my heroes,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If it werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t for them I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be here. I have an eternal gratitude to them.â&#x20AC;? Moberg had met nine of the firefighters at their annual banquet the week before, but said she was so choked up with emotion she could barely talk. At the March 3 gathering she was able to speak oneon-one with several of her rescuers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was absolutely wonderful to be able to meet them and hug them and thank them,â&#x20AC;? she said. It was also cathartic, she said: Hearing their memories of the crash helped her piece together the events of that night. Eagan firefighter David Ross said this was the first time he was able to meet someone heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d helped rescue. As one of the first firefighters on the scene, Ross held Mobergâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s head and neck throughout the rescue to stabilize her spine, comfort her, and keep her informed on what was hapE-mail Jessica Harper at: pening as crews worked to jessica.harper@ecm-inc.com free her from the car. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She was an extremely

Eagan Civic Arena brings roller-skate vibe to ice rink with Club Sk8

The Eagan Civic Arena is looking to jazz up its public skating hours with Club Sk8, a new approach to ice skating, featured Friday and Saturday nights. Offering ice time to the general public is what makes an ice rink a true civic arena, said Campus Facilities Manager Mark Vaughan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The problem is that public skating is boring,â&#x20AC;? he said. Often the most exciting part is changing directions, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People have fun, but we

needed to say, what makes it more fun?â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need to bring the roller skating atmosphere to ice skating.â&#x20AC;? Club Sk8, which debuts this weekend, aims to do exactly that. On Friday and Saturday nights, the bright white lights of the arena will be dimmed in favor of colorful, swirling LED theater lights and a disco ball. Music on a new sound system will come from a downloaded playlist and not the radio, so it will be commercial free. Future plans include adding a DJ, games, video

screens to play music videos, as well as a â&#x20AC;&#x153;Kid Kamâ&#x20AC;? to take pictures of skaters and put them up on the screen. Glow necklaces will also eventually be available for purchase. The Club Sk8 experience will cost $1 more than current public skating rates, making it $3 for students and $4 for adults. On some Saturdays, Club Sk8 will have a more familyfriendly atmosphere from 6 to 7:30 p.m., then a more teen-friendly atmosphere from 8:30 to 10 p.m. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inexpensive entertainment for families,

Vaughan said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This will be an affordable, air-conditioned event for families this summer,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s blazing hot and you need something to do, come to the rink.â&#x20AC;? Erin Johnson is at eagan. thisweek@ecm-inc.com.

A church that won its 2008 fight to relocate to a Burnsville industrial building has now lost its state tax exemption for that year. The Minnesota Supreme Court ruled March 2 that Crossroads Church failed to acquire the building before July 1, 2008. State law says that taxable property being transferred for a tax-exempt use must change hands before July 1 to gain exemption for that year. Minnesotaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s constitution exempts churches and church property from taxes. The Supreme Court affirmed a ruling by the Minnesota Tax Court that the transfer hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been timely and the church owed $51,918 in 2008 real estate taxes, as claimed by Dakota County. The church, located at 14300 W. Burnsville Parkway, said in a statement Wednesday that its attorneys will petition for a rehearing before the Supreme Court. The church has paid the tax. The Tax Court denied the churchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s request to not pay the two installments on the bill while before that court. Formerly located in Prior Lake, the growing church reached a three-party deal in early 2008 to buy the Mackin Book Co. building at 14300 W. Burnsville Parkway. The deal called for the church to buy the Mackin building; for Mackin to buy a nearby building from Gene Happe, owner of EFH Realty Advisors, in which

the Supreme Court ruling said. In April, the church gave a $10,000 earnest-money check to EFH, Heise and Heiseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s broker. EFH deposited the check in escrow in August. The closing date for the $4.5 million sale of the property was Sept. 8, the court said. The church contended that its â&#x20AC;&#x153;oral understandingâ&#x20AC;? with Heise and Heise was sufficient to transfer â&#x20AC;&#x153;equitable titleâ&#x20AC;? to the property. Equitable title is a â&#x20AC;&#x153;beneficial interestâ&#x20AC;? that gives the holder â&#x20AC;&#x153;the right to acquire formal legal title,â&#x20AC;? the court said. The court rejected the churchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s arguments, including claims of equitable title through timely payment of the $10,000 (which wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t deposited until August) and through the rezoning (which wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t completed until July 8).

Court says Crossroads hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t established ownership to relocate its growing business; and for EFH to buy the Crossroads building in Prior Lake. A divided City Council debated whether to allow the church on property zoned for office and industrial uses. Burnsville doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t allow churches in the I-3 zoning district. The council voted 3-2 in June 2008 to prepare documents changing the propertyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s planned unit development zoning to allow the church. On July 8 the council gave final approval to the PUD change and voided a redevelopment contract with Mackin that had required the building to remain a taxpaying commercial use. A draft purchase agreement between the church and Heise and Heise, owner of Mackin Book, wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t executed until Aug. 28, 2008, though it may have been â&#x20AC;&#x153;orally acceptedâ&#x20AC;? by the parties on March 15 and was drafted a week before,

Opinion Thisweek Columnist

How are we serving your community? by Larry Werner THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

A little over three years ago, I decided retirement wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t my thing and accepted a job managing Thisweek Newspapers and the Dakota County Tribune. If I had been interested in a relaxing, stress-free position after many years at the Star Tribune, I learned quickly that this wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t that kind of job. The newspaper business was not only being buffeted by the winds of the Great Recession but was dealing with its own challenges related to competition from the Internet for our readers and advertisers. We made changes to adjust â&#x20AC;&#x201C; discontinuing papers we had launched in Prior Lake and Savage, combining and redesigning six papers in Dakota County into three papers, with each serving two cities instead of one, and turning our Dakota County Tribune into a business weekly. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve also redesigned our web-

site, ThisweekLive.com, so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more interactive and more utilitarian. Change is a constant in our business, and we have to keep up with what our readers want so advertisers will use us to reach those readers. The changes weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve made over the past three years were informed by focus groups and other input from those who read our papers. So itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to ask you once more what youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like us to consider as we set priorities for continuing our mission as the leading news and advertising medium in Dakota County. We plan to sponsor six community conversations in coming months so we can listen before we leap to judgments about more changes. For many years, newspapers didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t spend time asking communities what they thought. Our subscription paper, the Dakota County Tribune, was started in 1884 and did just fine covering

news and selling advertising until it faced a new kind of competition in the 1970s. Instead of delivering weekly papers only to those who paid for subscriptions, publishers started delivering papers free to entire communities. So advertisers were able to reach virtually all residents rather than just those who paid for a subscription. The Clay family that owned the Tribune responded to that new competition by starting a free paper called Thisweek that was delivered to virtually all homes in Farmington, Lakeville, Burnsville, Eagan, Apple Valley and Rosemount. Thisweek succeeded as a free, total-market-circulation paper and was purchased from the Clays by ECM Publishers of Coon Rapids in 1999. As the 21st century dawned, our paper faced a new kind of competition from Internet sites where the advertising that supports the media was being sold for very little. We got into cyberspace

with our own website, which one recent survey showed is the leading community-news site in the metro area. However, virtually no news organization has figured out how to support a news company with low-priced website ads. And we hear from many of you that you prefer to read the news and ads from your community on good, old newsprint. But our news staff, under the leadership of Managing Editor Tad Johnson, is posting stories every day on ThisweekLive.com for those who prefer the timeliness of the web. Tuesday night, for example, our Lakeville editor, Aaron Vehling, and Jessica Harper, who covers two of our school districts, posted stories from school board meetings held that night in Rosemount and Lakeville. They have done complete reports on those meetings for todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s print edition. That print edition of Thisweek, by the way, was recently named the best free newspaper in the state by

the Minnesota Free Paper Association. I am very proud of the staff that produces our newspapers out of our offices in Burnsville. No news organization invests more than ECM in providing news and advertising in Dakota County. However, we can always improve. My e-mail is at the bottom of this column. Send me your thoughts on what you expect from Thisweek and the Dakota County Tribune. What do you like? How can we improve? Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll invite some of you to join us for a discussion of your communities and their relationship with a news organization thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been around for 127 years â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and counting. Larry Werner is editor and general manager of the Dakota County Tribune and Thisweek Newspapers. He can be reached at larry. werner@ecm-inc.com.

To the editor: A recent story detailed a delay in state approval for a contractor providing city services in Farmington. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not the only place where state involvement in local services is less than desirable. According to a March 3 state auditorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s report, 23 percent of citiesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; revenues came from local property taxes in the year 2000. Yet, nearly a decade later, in 2009, that percentage had increased to 37 percent of city revenues, a jump of 14 percent over the nine years. When adjustments are made for inflation, revenues from property taxes have increased 41 percent over the period, while revenues from local govern-

ment aids and other government sources decreased 25 percent. No wonder property owners are upset! For seniors on fixed incomes, in many cases, it amounts to having to choose between owning and eating. The auditorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s report makes it clear that cutting state aid to cities has a direct impact on property taxes. It helps explain why more than $1 billion in cuts to Local Government Aid resulted in a 70 percent increase in statewide property taxes under former Gov. Tim Pawlenty. That policy has continued under leaders from Pawlentyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s party in the state Legislature, and seniors are chafing. The previous governor kept reciting his â&#x20AC;&#x153;no new taxesâ&#x20AC;? creed, but delivered a $3 billion property tax increase to every homeowner,

stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s $5 billion deficit is the largest in its history. While Minnesotaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s job growth is performing better than the national average, the Great Recession still has left the state with a jobs deficit. There is one proposal that could help cut both deficits. Minnesotaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gaming industry wants to play a role in creating jobs and helping solve part of the short- and long-term budget problems. Running Aces Harness Park, one of two statelicensed and -regulated gaming facilities in Minnesota, is seeking permission from the Legislature to add slot machines to its card room, which already offers poker and blackjack. Permitting slots at the tracks only offers current customers an additional game. Permitting slot machines at the two race tracks helps create a fairer, more level playing field with Minnesotaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 18 tribal casinos. The race tracks would be able to offer the same video and slot machines currently offered at the tribal LEON THURMAN casinos. Tribal casinos will Burnsville still maintain their untaxed and unregulated status, as well as have more than 10 times the number of slot machines.

Middle-income Minnesotans canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford another tax increase. Republicans in the House of Representatives and Senate need to present their budget solution in time for Minnesotans to understand what their allcuts budget will mean for property tax bills, before these bills are presented to us for payment.

100 percent of the revenue would be available to Gov. Mark Dayton and the Legislature to help balance the budget and fund Minnesotaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s priorities. Within six months of legislative approval, gaming tax revenue would start flowing into the state. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a winning proposition. Slots at the tracks will create thousands of new jobs across the state and generate $400 million in new economic activity. It will help Minnesotaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hospitality and entertainment industry and provide a boost for the rural economy. New jobs, new tax revenue, new investment: It is Minnesotaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s budget jackpot. Some people have said this will solve all of Minnesotaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s problems. Others have said it will result in staggering losses at the tribal casinos. Neither claim is true, but one thing is certain: Permitting slots at the tracks is a winning proposition for Minnesota and should be part of a solution.

An Apple Valley man who posted his vehicle for sale on Craigslist last summer had no trouble finding a buyer, but the on-the-spot cash payment he received was in counterfeit $100 bills, police say. Corey Edward Clarence Follmer, 20, of Brooklyn Center, has been charged with theft by swindle, a felony, in connection with the June transaction. A recently filed Dakota County criminal complaint gives the following account: The vehicleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seller contacted Apple Valley police on June 11 to report a theft. He told police he had been selling a vehicle on Craigslist and had received a call earlier in the day from Follmer, who arranged to stop by his residence and test drive the vehicle. After the test drive, Follmer handed the seller an envelope with 22 $100 bills inside. A short time after the transaction the seller realized the money was fake and called police. In an interview with police, Follmer admitted using counterfeit bills for the purchase, the complaint said. â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Andrew Miller

Seven Eagles win state titles Eleven Apple Valley wrestlers place at state tournament by Andy Rogers THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

A little bit of everything happened to the Apple Valley Eagles wrestling team in the individual state tournament Saturday night. Senior Destin McCauley won his fifth state title, tying a state record. Junior Dakota Trom (125 pounds), senior Matt Kelliher (135) and junior Brandon Kingsley (140) won their third state titles. Seniors Jordan Kingsley (112) and Jake Waste (171) won their first Minnesota state titles along with seventh-grader Mark Hall (130). It wasn’t all gold for Apple Valley. Two wrestlers going for their second state title fell short. Sophomore Daniel Wowior (145) and senior Steven Keogh (160) finished second. Seth Gross (103) and Matt Heschel (189) earned bronze medals for their efforts.

McCauley will miss ‘family’ What started with a state title in seventh grade came full circle Saturday for McCauley. When it was all over, it hit him that this was his last match as an Eagle. “I’m done,” he said. “No more high school. It hit me right after the match.” He pinned Rosemount’s Adam Jackson in the final at 152 pounds to secure his fifth state title. “The whole season I was looking forward to this,” he said. “This is all I wanted.” Winning his fifth title will never compare to winning state as a seventhgrader, according to McCauley. “I was the underdog,”

McCauley said. “I was so excited about what I could accomplish.” McCauley is far from done with wrestling. He plans to wrestle for the University of Wisconsin, but before that he’s going to Colorado to train with the U.S. National team with hopes to vie in the 2012 Olympics. “A year from now, hopefully I’ll be wrestling people from all over the world,” he said. “I’m excited to see all the different kinds of styles out there.” He said he will never forget what Apple Valley wrestling meant to him. “It was a family to me,” McCauley said. “I have my own family, but this is my family during the winter, and I loved every minute of it.”

Three first-timers For the first-time Minnesota state champions, it was an eye-opening experience. “It was very nerve-racking,” Hall said. Hall, a seventh-grader, beat two juniors and a senior to win a state title, and it wasn’t easy. In the

semifinals against Forest Lake’s Ben Morgan, Hall trailed, 5-0, in the first period, fought off a pin, and muscled his way to an 8-6 overtime win. The crowd’s reaction, which favored his opponent in the first period, only inspired Hall. “The whole crowd erupted,” Hall said. “ I could feel the ground shake. It’s probably the worst situation you could be in. Once you’re out of that situation, it doesn’t matter anymore. No more nerves.” Hall has several varsity years left. He said he’d like several more state titles. “I want to get to the point where I’m unstoppable,” Hall said.

Three golds Prior to the state tournament, six wrestlers in Apple Valley history had earned three or more state titles. Trom, Kelliher and Brandon Kingsley made it nine. They are all close in weight, so they’ve had some of the best wrestling partners for years. “I have the chance to

compete with the best in the nation every day at practice,” Brandon Kingsley said. “All you practice with is state champion after state champion. You can’t beat that. “We’re all so competitive too. It’s constant striving to be at the top level.” This year’s seven state titles match Apple Valley’s total from last season. “They worked hard all year long,” head coach Jim Jackson said. “You got to give credit to the families. Championships are won in the offseason, and these guys worked all year long. They deserve it.”

No. 19 for the team

plain. “I think we went out there and did our best,” McCauley said. “You can’t have a perfect match every time, but it was close.” Of all the Eagles’ accomplishments this season, such as winning national tournaments like the Cheesehead Invitational and the Clash, the Minnesota state title meant something extra. “You got the crowd, you got the energy all around us,” senior Steven Keogh said. “This is my favorite tournament of the year.” Apple Valley defeated White Bear Lake, 65-12, in the quarterfinals and Prior Lake, 70-0, in the semifinals. Six points from the White Bear Lake match came from a forfeit. “It’s the greatest feeling to know that we’re the best team in Minnesota, especially after dominating like we did tonight,” Woiwor said. “We like reassuring everybody else we’re the No. 1 team in the state, in the nation.”

The Eagles won their sixth straight and 19th overall Class AAA state team title at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul on March 3. The team defeated St. Michael-Albertville, 61-6, in the finals with an almost flawless match. The only loss came at heavyweight class, in which the Eagles weren’t favored.

Wildcats claw their way to state by Andy Rogers THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

The Eagan boys hockey team earned the No. 4 seed at the Class AA state tournament this week. It is Eagan’s second trip to the state tournament in school history, with the first coming in 2006. Eagan played Thursday night at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul against Moorhead in the quarterfinals, after this edition went to press. To earn their bid, Eagan exacted some revenge against Apple Valley on March 3 in the Section 3AA final. In a repeat of last year’s final when lower-seeded Apple Valley upset Eagan for the right to play at state, this year it was Eagan’s turn. Kyle Bonstrom’s shot in the third period gave Eagan the 1-0 win. He was assisted

by Cullen Willox. The Wildcats defense was key in the victory, holding Apple Valley to 18 shots on goal. Apple Valley’s season ends with a 20-7-1 record. Two of the losses and the tie came against Eagan.

Burnsville

just two minutes, 29 seconds during the game, but the Hornets had a 3-2 advantage when time expired. Burnsville didn’t have as many chances as Edina. With just 17 shots on goal, the Blaze had to make sure every shot counted. Mike Dockry led Burnsville with a goal and an assist. Jace Childs had two assists, Eddie Wittchow one assist, and Jake Senta scored the other goal. Burnsville goalie Bodhi Engum had 28 saves in the loss. “He played his heart out,” Kivihalme said. “He’s given us a chance all year long.” The Blaze season ends with a 19-5-4 record and a South Suburban Conference title.

With hopes of making its ninth appearance at state and first since 2007, the Burnsville boys hockey team fell one goal short in the Section 2AA final March 2 at Mariucci Arena in Minneapolis. “They played their heart out,” Burnsville head coach Janne Kivihalme said. “We had some injuries, and we had to make some line changes. We had to take advantage of our opportunities, and we weren’t able to Andy Rogers is at put it home.” Edina held the lead for andy.rogers@ecm-inc.com.

Swimmers find their place at state Eagan’s Zack Bonifacio (left) finished in second place in the 50 freestyle at the state meet. Rob Miller was fifth and Griffin Voss seventh in the 100 butterfly. All three joined Zach Sundry to eighth-place in the 400 freestyle medley. The team came in eighth. For more photos and results from other area schools, go online at www.ThisweekLive.com.

came against Destin,” Jackson said. “I can’t really complain about that. It shows my hard work paid off.” Jackson defeated Willmar’s Coty Milhausen, 107, in the first round, in what turned out to be the closest match of the tournament for him. At one point he trailed. “I was thinking I don’t want to go home, waste a whole season working so hard and then lose,” Jackson said. He went on to beat White Bear Lake Area’s Cody Anderson, 7-1, and Cambridge-Isanti’s Cody Glines, 9-6, before facing McCauley.

In his first trip to the Class AAA state individual wrestling tournament, Rosemount’s Adam Jackson made it count. When it was all over, he had a silver medal around his neck and a smile from ear to ear on Saturday night at the Xcel Energy Center. “I felt coming into state that if I wrestled my best, I could finish quite high,” Jackson said. “I didn’t think coming into this season I could be a silver medalist.” Jackson lost to five-time state champion Destin McCauley from neighboring Apple Valley in the 152-pound final Saturday Rogers is at night. Jackson wasn’t sur- Andy andy.rogers@ecm-inc.com. prised. “My only three losses

Eagan math team runner-up in division Second-place showing earns team chance to vie at state March 14 by Jessica Harper THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

While much of the nation lags behind oher countries in math, one group of Eagan students is proving it can master a skill that is in high

demand. Eagan High Schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s math league recently finished second in its division, which will enable the team to advance to the state competition March 14 at Augsburg College in Minneapolis. This will be the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fifth year at state. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m very excited we did so well,â&#x20AC;? said Lars Johnson, an EHS senior who ranked

fourth in the leagueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s division. Johnson, who has been on the team for four years, said he has always loved studying math. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Like in life, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the journey to the answer that is fun, not the answer itself,â&#x20AC;? he said. Although many of the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s members are already math whizzes, the leagueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

rigorous testing will make students better prepared to compete in college and the global marketplace, said Martha Rietveld, EHS math league coach and math teacher. Each math league competition tests students, both individually and as a team, on advanced algebra, geometry, trigonometry and calculus. Johnson said he enjoys

the way these tests not only help him improve his math skills but also teaches problem-solving and teamwork. The league also helps students improve their study skills, which EHS junior Saurabh Mishra said will prepare him for his first year of college. The school joined the league in 1990 to boost interest in math and science

among students, Rietveld said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Students donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always want to say they are proud to be good at math,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This has stirred interest in the subject.â&#x20AC;? The team consists of 22 students in grades nine through 12. E-mail Jessica Harper at: jessica.harper@ecm-inc.com

Thisweekend Art Fete shines the spotlight on local artists Burnsville Visual Arts Societyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual exhibit runs through April 16 in the gallery of the PAC by Andrew Miller THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

Richard Mittelstadt says he anguished over which of his paintings to submit to Art Fete, the annual art show of the Burnsville Visual Arts Society. Each BVAS member is allowed to submit one work of art to the exhibit, and Mittelstadt found himself giving the eagle-eye to more than 70 of his own paintings to zero in on just the right one. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had one picked out, then I had second thoughts, then I asked my daughter,â&#x20AC;? said the retired Rosemount High School art teacher who now serves as BVAS trea-

surer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I value my daughterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s opinion.â&#x20AC;? Mittelstadt settled on â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cosmic Experience II,â&#x20AC;? an abstract work featuring psychedelic bursts of color. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a painting with an interesting history. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s actually a painting on top of another painting,â&#x20AC;? he explained. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I looked over that (first) painting, took it to my table, turned the music up and just started destroying it.â&#x20AC;? Not all BVAS members found themselves torturously ruminating over what to submit to Art Fete, which opened this week and runs through April 16 in the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Alchemy Art Up-cycledâ&#x20AC;? (left) by Nancye Williams of Burnsville and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cosmic Experience IIâ&#x20AC;? (above) by Richard Mittelstadt of Prior Lake are among the more than 70 works of art created by Burnsville Visual Arts Society members that are featured at Art Fete.

A bigger grant from the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council ($5,000 for Art Fete 2011, compared with $2,300 last year), allowed organizers to add Braille artist labels beside each work of art, a Braille book of artist statements, and an audio recording describing each piece which visitors can request when they enter the exhibit. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Overall, it makes the show more accessible to people with visual disability,â&#x20AC;? said Alejandra Pelinka, BVAS president and Art Fete chair. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our goal has always been to make it as accessible as possible to the community.â&#x20AC;? In addition to the community-friendly features, the additional grant money also allowed for bigger cash awards for the winning artists. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been able to double the amount given out for each award,â&#x20AC;? Pelinka said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s showing our support for the artists â&#x20AC;&#x201C; being an artist is not an easy profession, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not lucrative.â&#x20AC;? A first-place showing this year will garner about $150, compared with $75 last year, she explained. Most of the artwork at Art Fete is for sale, and can be purchased by contacting the Burnsville PAC at (952) 895-4685. More about Art Fete is at www.burnsvillepac.com.

THISWEEK March 11, 2011

Cornerstone/from 1A That same spirit lives on today with owners Daniel Mahowald and Warren D. Mosier. From the Burnsville Community Foundationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seasonal lighting to youth mentoring to arts organizations, they have supported many local causes. Some notables include the long-running Burnsville Fire Muster and the newer International Festival of Burnsville, held in Burnsvilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Heart of the City each year. At last count, Cornerstone is a member of four local chambers of commerce. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been fortunate in that our community has always embraced Cornerstone,â&#x20AC;? Mahowald said.

To the rescue Though Cornerstone Copy Center has worked with thousands of customers over the years, a few projects stand out. Possibly the most memorable of these was in the aftermath of the massive arson fire at Burnsville High School in 1994. Because so many documents in the school were smoke damaged, they had to be replaced. So Cornerstone copied thousands of documents from the high school and created new, smoke-free

Another reason is they help their customers get what they want. Mahowald describes it this way: â&#x20AC;&#x153;People know what outcome they want. And then we help them make it happen.â&#x20AC;? It seems their customers agree. A search of online reviews shows them all as positive. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an example from DexKnows.com: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Every time I use Cornerstone Copy I experience some of the best customer service in Burnsville. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m always very satisfied with the quality of work. Not only can they run my jobs on a color copier, but a press if need be. I will always recommend Cornerstone Copy Center.â&#x20AC;?

copies that could be used by teachers, staff and students. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The project was huge,â&#x20AC;? Mahowald said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They shipped the smoke-damaged documents to us in vans. For several months it seemed all we did was copy high school documents.â&#x20AC;? Given its 30-year history, one might think Cornerstoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first customer would be nothing more than a memory. But at Cornerstone Copy Center, customer loyalty is a key to its success. The first customer, Mary Sherry (currently a Burnsville City Council member), is still an active and loyal customer, according to Mahowald.

Success despite economy

the years. In 2004, it bought an Apple Valley-based offset printing company. This brought true offset press printing in-house to Cornerstone. And the Internet will be a big part of its future. This spring, the company will launch a new product that will enable customers to design their own personalized products, right on their computer. The service will be available online, so customers can access it anywhere in the world. Unlike other services, Cornerstone will offer free software for customers to install on their own computers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We feel this provides more convenience and security than a completely online product,â&#x20AC;? Mahowald said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With the software on their computer, customers can design their own photo books, calendars, greeting cards, even posters,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And they can do it without having to upload all their pictures to someone elseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website.â&#x20AC;? Once the customer is done designing a product, Cornerstone can print it, bind it and ship it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve tried to make a seamless and fun process for our customers,â&#x20AC;? Mahowald said.

The future Part of the future for this community-minded business involves efficiency. Because of the building design, the company could double in size in the current space. Cornerstone recently cut its energy usage by installing new lighting, via a program sponsored by the city of Burnsville. Another aspect of the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s future is to keep investing in technology that helps customers get what they want. While Cornerstone started by doing just copies, its capabilities have expanded over

Cornerstone Copy Center has managed to thrive throughout good and bad economic times. In fact, since 2001, when Mahowald and mosier bought the company, they have increased the business to three times its former size. One reason is their passion and knowledge of the business. Mahowald knows the business from the inside out, having a 24-year tenure at Cornerstone. And mosier is a degreed and experienced graphic designer, with 18 years under his belt.

to create jobs by addressing education, global trade and immigration, among other topics. In the next 90 days, Immelt wants council members to reach out to their contacts in the business world, reconvene and give very specific proposals to the president. The president welcomed that prospect, saying he wanted concrete deliverables from the group. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be very important for us to get ideas from people whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve actually â&#x20AC;&#x201C; are actually â&#x20AC;&#x201C; on the ground right now, trying to build your businesses and operate in an extraordinarily competitive world,â&#x20AC;? Obama said. Miller said she takes seriously the presidentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s commitment to working with the business community to put Americans back to work. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The agenda the president outlined during our conversations at the White House is one that Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s job creators can all get behind,â&#x20AC;? Miller said after she returned to Minnesota. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We agree in the need to encourage more American innovation, strengthen our education system to include skilled labor, and rebuild our infrastructure. Now we need to put words into action.â&#x20AC;?

Millerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s remarks were preceded and followed by comments from the CEOs of American Express and DuPont. The contrast in size of the companies did not go unnoticed by the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chairman, GE CEO Jeffrey Immelt. In outlining the councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s goals, he said the No. 1 point that will ensure this groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s success is that it is a diverse team representing large and small businesses from a wide range of sectors. Miller said it is important to have a company like Permac from a city like Burnsville represented on the council. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Permac represents the goals and values of many small businesses across the country,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are an innovative, hard-working company that puts its employees first. Having these beliefs on the council assures many of Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s small businesses that their voices are being heard by the president.â&#x20AC;? Miller said she is optimistic the council can offer suggestions and plans to the president that will put Americans back to work. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have universal agreement that we will have a laserlight focus on creating jobs,â&#x20AC;? Immelt said. He said the group will focus Tad Johnson is at tad.johnon practical and tactical ways son@ecm-inc.com.

Contractors desiring a hardcopy of the complete bidding documents may obtain them from the office of the City Clerk, Eagan, MN upon payment of $50.00. No money will be refunded to any person who obtains plans and specifications. Best Value Contracting Selection: This project is extensive, involving many affected property owners. Timing of the project is critical for the safety of the general public and to minimize disruption. In addition, the City has limited financial resources to commit to the project. Accordingly, the project must be accomplished with a minimum of interruption, on time, and without cost overruns. The City believes that only a contractor with good experience in constructing this kind of project is necessary. Two factors will be considered in the contractor selection process: price and performance. The process for the consideration of proposals for the award of this Project will take into account not only the Contract amount bid for construction items, but also the bidder's ability and performance on previous similar projects, within and outside the City of Eagan, and the bidder's availability of major equipment to perform this project. The evaluation criteria to be utilized will be the total proposal price divided by the aggregate average technical performance score, as determined by the technical evaluation committee. Mandatory Pre-Bid Meeting: A mandatory Pre-Bid Conference will be held at 10:30 A.M., C.D.S.T. at the Eagan Municipal Center at 3830 Pilot Knob Road on Tuesday, March 22, 2011 at 10:30 a.m. in the Eagan Room (2nd Floor). The purpose of the conference is to provide details and answer questions regarding the evaluation/selection criteria that will be used, along with bid price, to select a Contractor for contract award under the Best Value Contracting Authority. Failure to attend this meeting shall eliminate an absent bidder's bid submission from contract award consideration. Attendance at the conference will be recorded. Technical Proposal Deadline: Prospective Bidders' technical proposals must be received by 10:30 A.M. C.D.S.T., Monday, March 28, 2011 at the Eagan Municipal Center at 3830 Pilot Knob Road. Each bid proposal shall be accompanied by a bidder's bond naming the City of Eagan as obligee, a certified check payable to the Clerk of the City of Eagan or a cash deposit equal to at least five percent (5%) of the amount of the bid, which shall be forfeited to the City in the event that the bidder fails to enter into a contract. The City Council reserves the right to retain the deposits of the three lowest bidders for a period not to exceed forty-five (45) days after the date and time set for the opening of the bids. No bids may be withdrawn for a period of forty-five (45) days after the date and time set for the opening of bids. Payment for the work will be by cash or check. The City reserves the right to reject any and all bids and technical proposals, to waive irregularities and informalities therein and further reserves the right to award the contract to the best interests of the City.
