Eagan irked by Comcast fees City Council grills cable provider on charges, ‘lack of transparency’ by Jessica Harper SUN THISWEEK

A rate increase and new digital adaptor requirements imposed by Comcast have created confusion and concern among Eagan city officials and residents. The Philadelphia telecommunications company has sent letters to customers in the past few months announcing major changes that include new fees and a requirement for basic cable subscribers to obtain a Digital Transport Adapter, a small box that allows programming to be viewed by decrypting digital signals. City officials quickly became inundated with calls from Eagan Comcast customers who were concerned and confused about the fees, prompting city officials to add the item onto its Feb. 19 council agenda. “Residents became unsure who needed an adapt-

er, who would be charged and whether those charges were justified,” said Diane Miller, Eagan’s assistant city administrator. Prior to the beginning of this year, Comcast digital cable subscribers required a DTA, a box about the size of two smart phones stacked on top of one another that decrypts digital signals to be viewed on a television. The most basic level of this tier is the digital starter service, which includes about 100 digital channels and OnDemand services. Subscribers of Comcast’s digital service were provided up to three free outlets, which provide cable service to additional televisions. Beginning Jan. 1, the company charged $1.99 per additional outlet. There is no added charge for the subscriber’s main television. Mike Logan, director of government affairs for Comcast, explained the company imposed these new fees to match the competition, which he said See COMCAST, 20A

Hospital expansion is biggest to date by John Gessner SUN THISWEEK

Fairview Ridges Hospital in Burnsville is planning a $60 million expansion, the largest since it opened in 1984. The hospital isn’t adding beds; it’s still licensed for 150, said Fairview Ridges President Beth Krehbiel.

Much of the expansion focuses on ambulatory care without overnight hospital stays — the future of health care, she said. “We’re working to create spaces that are more convenient for patients at a lower cost,” Krehbiel said. See HOSPITAL, 20A

No ‘third-rate’ rental housing, mayor declares Kautz also praises Ebeling in wide-ranging speech by John Gessner SUN THISWEEK

Burnsville won’t tolerate “third-rate” rental properties, Mayor Elizabeth Kautz declared Feb. 20 in a wideranging State of the City speech that covered topics from coming road projects to business climate. The seven-term mayor, who was re-elected last November, said it’s “no secret” that Burnsville has abundant rental housing and some properties with “unacceptable” living conditions caused by poor main-

tenance. Without naming troubled Country Village Apartments — whose rental license the city revoked and then reinstated last year after improvements were finally made under threat of penalty — Kautz touted the city’s updated rental licensing ordinance. Regulations that took effect Jan. 1 require that each rental unit be inspected once every three years and common areas of rental complexes be inspected annually. Rental-property

owners will fund the inspections through inspection and licensing fees. “We believe this new program sends a very strong signal to rental-property owners that Burnsville will not tolerate substandard properties and that we will move quickly to address any violations,” the mayor said in her address, held at the city’s Performing Arts Center and sponsored by the Burnsville Chamber of Commerce. She touted the city’s elite Aaa bond rating and 2012

surveys showing that 75 percent of residents and 92 percent of business say the city is on the “right track.” Burnsville’s 2013 tax rate, Kautz said, is fourth-lowest among Dakota County cities. Despite a “lethargic” national economy in 2012, Burnsville attracted 47 new businesses last year, nine more than it lost, Kautz said. They include Walmart, CVS Pharmacy and ShopJimmy.com, which is leasing 289,000 square feet in the vast former Our Own Hardware building.

After finishing his cigarette, he allegedly told one of the girls he came the mall looking for sex, and offered her $200 to have sex with him. “At this point the females told the defendant no and walked away,” the complaint said. The officer found Mobin based on the description the girls gave. He initially denied speaking to any girls, but later admitted he likes to come to the mall because “I get to see pretty females,” the complaint said.

The officer then contacted the girls and showed them Mobin, whom they identified as the man who offered them $200 for sex, the complaint said. Mobin was charged last year with soliciting prostitution for an 18-year-old pregnant woman who said he was the father. She and Mobin were arrested at the Prime Rate Motel in January 2011 after a police officer posing as a john answered an escort ad on Backpage.com. Originally charged with three counts of solicitation and one count of domestic

assault by strangulation, Mobin pleaded guilty to one count of solicitation, according to the latest criminal complaint against him. Burnsville police responded to the ad, in which the woman appeared to be pregnant and under the influence of illegal drugs, out of concern for her safety, according to the complaint in that case.

Opinion Our Capitol reporters, columnists provide bigger-picture coverage by Larry Werner SUN THISWEEK

On Monday mornings, at a coffee shop in Mounds View, Tim Budig, Howard Lestrud and I meet to discuss their plans for the week ahead. Tim and Howard represent the commitment of ECM Publishers to provide more than strictly local news in our 51 newspapers. When I started reading ECM’s Thisweek Newspapers after moving to Lakeville from Edina in 1999, I was struck by a byline for a “Capitol reporter” in this paper that was mostly about happenings in the community. That wasn’t the kind of byline I was accustomed to seeing in the Edina Sun Current, the weekly paper I had read for many years. Now, however, state Capitol news is in our Edina newspaper and the other Sun papers ECM acquired a year ago. And on all our news websites, in a section called At The Capitol, you’ll find the reporting of Budig and Lestrud. Not too many years after ECM was founded by Elmer Andersen, a former businessman, legislator and governor, our newspapers named a Capitol correspon-

Sun Thisweek Columnist

Larry Werner dent to cover the happenings at the Legislature and state agencies. Budig, a Wisconsin native and former reporter at ABC Newspapers in Coon Rapids, has been that Capitol correspondent for almost 15 years. Tim is a writing machine — a guy who might crank out 10 stories a week on what our legislators are doing. However, after the Sun acquisition in December of 2011, he found himself covering state news for about 30 more newspapers serving many more communities. Recently, we gave Tim some help. Howard Lestrud, a longtime ECM editor and manager, agreed to take on the new position as political editor and is now working with Tim in St. Paul. Tim and Howard have been meeting with legisla-

tors and state officials to develop stories about government as the legislative session continues. Howard also has been co-chair of the ECM Editorial Board, another creation of our late founder, whose son, Julian Andersen, is our current CEO. Julian’s father took great pleasure in writing editorials and felt that it’s important for newspapers to take stands on public issues. So about once a month, you’ll find editorials in your local newspaper that might deal with anything from education policy to political races to the national farm bill. Also appearing on our editorial pages are columns by Don Heinzman, who has worked as an editor and manager with ECM almost since the company was founded. Don serves with Howard, Julian, President Marge Winkelman, several of our editors and two citizen members on the editorial board that meets monthly to develop positions on issues. Another regular ECM columnist is Joe Nathan, who is executive director of the Center for School Change. Joe, a former public school teacher and education-policy expert, provides his views on Minne-

sota education. Some of you might wonder why the local weekly newspaper and website are devoting resources to covering news that crosses the boundaries of your municipalities and counties. It’s because a renaissance man named Andersen decided his newspapers would provide more than what has come to be known as “hyperlocal” news — the activities of city councils, school boards and sports teams. He wanted you to get information about the state he served as a legislator and governor. It would be less expensive to forgo that kind of big-picture coverage and stick with strictly local news. One of the reasons I enjoy working for ECM is because the company’s mission goes beyond reporting local news and selling local ads. In his autobiography, Elmer Andersen wrote this about his commitment to news: “I was not in the newspaper business to make money. I was in it for the mission.” Larry Werner is director of news for ECM Publishers. He is at larry.werner@ ecm-inc.com. Columns reflect the opinion of the author.

Bush Foundation seeking person to help practical visionaries in education by Joe Nathan SUN THISWEEK

This week I thought about people like Wayne Pikal, Ramona de Rosales, Doug and Dee Thomas, Eric and Ella Mahmoud and Keith Lester. The support given to foundations helped these “practical visionaries” carry out their (very good) ideas. This issue comes up, in part, because the Minnesota-based Bush Foundation is seeking a new education director to help identify and support innovation throughout Minnesota, North and South Dakota. Here are what some foundations have done in education in addition to some information about Bush. • Blandin Foundation empowered educators to set up new, research-based programs. Recently I mentioned a threehour/day program in Little Falls High School, taught by Wayne Pikal, a biology teacher, an English and social studies teacher. Students read and wrote about the Mississippi, and tested river quality of the water. Blandin Foundation helped start this. • With help from various foundations, Brooklyn Center Superintendent Keith Lester brought together district and so-

Sun Thisweek Columnist

Joe Nathan cial service agencies in the district’s middle and high school building. This helps provide better service for students and families. • Ford Foundation helped create Head Start, an early childhood program that works both with low-income families and their children. Not all early childhood programs are equally effective. But some of them have helped produce progress with children that have lasted decades after children participated. • Minnesota Initiative Funds helped establish “School-Based Entrepreneurship” programs in Greater Minnesota, such as the hardware store in Rothsay run by high school students. This attracted attention from the Wall Street Journal and National Inquirer. • Annenberg and Gates Foundation helped Doug and Dee Thomas start the

nationally known Minnesota New Country (charter) School in Henderson. A majority of the school’s board of directors are teachers working in the school: an example of true teacher empowerment. MNCS uses a project approach and has refined a “Hope Survey” to measure whether students are learning goalsetting and persistence. • Cargill and other foundations helped Eric and Ella Mahmoud establish Harvest Prep. They’ve received national attention for success in closing achievement gaps between white and African American students. • Frey, Travelers and St. Paul foundations helped Center for School Change bring together district and charter schools to increase the number of high school students taking challenging, college level classes. Other foundations mentioned here have also helped the Center for School Change. • Target supported meetings convened by educators like Bondo Nyembwe, Ramona de Rosales, Kerry Felt and Catherine Rich to help parents understand how to select books for their young children, and gave them a book to read with their children.

• 3M supports Project Lead the Way to help promote stronger Science, Technology, Engineering and Math skills. • Bush provides yearlong fellowships to help people implement ideas. That brings us back to Bush Foundation. Using funds earned from 3M, Archibald and Edyth Bush created the foundation. The foundation’s 2011 annual report says it donated $29.6 million, of which 41 percent, about $12 million, was in education. Its overall education goal over the next decade is to “increase by 50 percent the number of students in Minnesota, North Dakota and South Dakota, from pre-kindergarten through college, who are on track to earn a degree after high school, and eliminate disparities among diverse student groups.” Wise foundations look not only for good ideas, but also for people who can carry them out.

To the editor: I admire the leadership Gov. Mark Dayton is showing in proposing needed money for Minnesota’s schools, transportation, and our families, particularly those who are most at risk in a recovering economy. I agree that the prospect of a balanced state budget in which individuals and businesses with greater resources are able to pay a tax rate more like what the rest of us pay, is a step in the right direction. I think his proposals have been criticized by political opponents because it’s their job to find fault with what he says, particularly because his ideas will likely succeed. I predict the restoration of economic demand in our state’s economy will appeal to the common sense of voters. The values he works for – dignity without favor, the right of working Minnesotans to associate and bargain collectively, and the preparation of our young people to do well in international competition – are proven and effective. As citizens, we need to listen respectfully to opinions which run counter to our own to maintain a civil discourse. BETTY FEDDE Eagan

New rules aim to improve lawmaking To the editor: One of the messages that Minnesotans sent in November was that they want an open Legislature where they can participate in the process. I,

along with my DFL and some of my Republican colleagues, heard that message loud and clear. That’s why we crafted new rules that promote greater transparency for the public and more effective governance in the legislative process. Passing these rules was an arduous task. Debate lasted until 2:30 a.m. Feb. 12, Tuesday morning. There was more than nine hours of debate. But it was worth it. As I said in a floor speech at 1:30 a.m., “These rules will improve our work product, improve transparency, and provide greater accountability to the public and greater opportunities for public input.” Some of the key changes are: • All legislators – both DFL and Republican – must pre-file amendments at least 24 hours before a bill is to be voted on the House floor. • The Rules Committee is allowed to set a cutoff date for introduction of new bills toward the end of session. • Second-degree amendment must be relevant to the underlying primary amendment and may not introduce a new subject or add a new purpose. • The speaker or the majority to refer a bill to Rules Committee or the committee of jurisdiction for corrections. These rules are designed to provide guidelines for and bring structure to the work that we do. They set greater expectations on both the majority party and the minority party. The rules apply to all of us. We have a lot of work to do this session. Lawmakers of both parties must come to ensure that

our Legislature runs efficiently and in a manner that makes it assessable to those people we work for. WILL MORGAN House District 56B representative Burnsville-Lakeville

Wills already showing bipartisan effort To the editor: Time after time during the 2012 campaign we heard candidates say they wanted to go to St. Paul and Washington, D.C., to end the gridlock, work across the aisle, and get things done. But all too often, those words ring hollow when they are elected, and the usual partisanship continues. That’s why I was proud see state Rep. Anna Wills, R-Apple Valley, standing alongside DFL Sen. Chuck Wiger and DFL Secretary of State Mark Ritchie announcing bipartisan legislation that would give businesses tax credits for hiring veterans. The bill has a number of GOP and DFL co-sponsors in the Senate and the House, and has the support of a number of veteran advocacy groups. It’s also the first bill to be chief authored by Wills, who was elected to her first term in 2012. It’s refreshing to see Wills turn her words into actions by working across the aisle on issues that all Minnesotans can agree on. We need more of this bipartisan attitude in the Legislature.

Michelle Beck has moved her bridal shop, Bridal Accents Couture, to Burnsville’s Heart of the City.

Bridalwear shop opens in the Heart of the City New location a fresh start for Bridal Accents Couture by John Gessner SUN THISWEEK

Always drawn to fashion and design, Michelle Beck has spent a lifetime working toward her goal of being a shopkeeper. It extended from her make-believe games as a girl growing up in Burnsville to a six-year stint with Nordstrom, learning the ropes of fashion retail. Today Beck owns Bridal Accents Couture, the Savage shop she bought in 2009 and moved to Burnsville’s Heart of the City in late December 2012. Seeking a space more centrally located for a regional clientele, Beck purchased 5,600 square feet of suite space on the first floor of the Park Crest on Nicollet condominium building. Located at 12501 Nicollet Ave., the bridal shop is next to Jo Jo’s Rise and Wine and includes the space once occupied by the Double Dip ice cream shop. It’s the only commercial-storefront bridal shop in Burnsville, said Beck, who held a grand opening earlier this month. “I like the location and I wanted to freshen the brand and be brand new, and have a little more space as well,� she said. A 1992 graduate of The Academy of Holy Angels, Beck studied

fashion merchandising and management at the University of WisconsinStout. She began her career at Nordstrom at the Mall of America, first as an intern and then as a full-time employee. She was hired as assistant manager of accessories after college, and within a few months had been promoted to manager of the store’s Savvy department, which handles women’s designer labels. “I ultimately wanted more of a small boutique setting where I could make a lot of the decisions with regard to marketing and buying,� Beck said. In 1999, after having her first child, Beck was hired as a part-time sales associate at Bridal Accents Couture, which had outfitted her and her sister’s double wedding in 1997. “Ten bridesmaids, 10 groomsmen, two brides,� said Beck, who now lives in Lakeville with husband Adam and their children, 13-year-old Morgan and 9-year-old Luke. “My mother got her gown there.� She became manager and buyer at Bridal Accents Couture, which was located in a cluster of wedding-related shops on West County Road 42 known as the Bridal Retreat. Bridal Accents Couture owner Sonja Bom-

hoff eventually relocated to Texas, said Beck, who bought the business in 2009 from a subsequent owner. The Bridal Retreat eventually dissolved as businesses came and went, but one of the businesses — Kim’s Tailoring, owned by Angela Kim — followed Beck to Burnsville and rents space from her at Park Crest on Nicollet. “Our brides don’t have to use her, but most do,� Beck said. “She’s very talented.� Bridal Accents Couture offers brides selections from 14 designers, Beck said. It carries rental tuxes from two suppliers. The trend in bridalwear is toward lace and neckline variations, said Beck, who travels annually to an industry show in New York. Strapless gowns are losing some steam. “Certainly the royal wedding had an influence on that,� she said. The store employs eight people, including sales and marketing manager Aubrie Hansen.

Eagan tech business sees first female CEO Mord is first woman to own Guaranteed Business Systems’ in company’s 27-year history by Jessica Harper SUN THISWEEK

For the first time in 27 years, the person calling the shots at Guaranteed Business Systems in Eagan is a woman. After serving as the company’s controller for 14 years, Melanie Mord, 47, decided to take over the small tech support company in 2011 as CEO. This isn’t Mord’s first time being her own boss. She and husband, John, owned another small business over the past 20 years. The couple purchased their first business — a flower shop — in 1994 in their hometown of Baudette, Minn., near the Canadian border. Four years later, the couple sold the business to move their family to Eagan. “We decided we wanted to move to a bigger area where there’s more oppor-

tunities for our children,” Mord said. Today, Mord continues to work along side John, 48, who serves as CIO and president of Guaranteed Business Systems. The couple said they enjoy working as a team. “We get along well and work off each other’s strengths,” Mord said. Mord’s desire to own her own business has roots in her childhood. As a young girl she would help at the Black Duck Hotel, which her family owned. Like Mord, John’s family owned a small business in Baudette called Howard Soil. “Growing up in a family business helped us define what customer service is,” John said. In 1998 Mord was hired by GBS as a controller – a role that had her overseeing the company’s accounting and marketing.

That year, John, who has a bachelor’s degree in business from Bemidji State University, was hired as a sales manager. The couple weren’t exactly computer geeks and knew little of the emerging technology. “It was like going to the moon back then,” Mord said. Both were fast learners and now know all the ins and outs of the industry.

petition from online businesses as customers cut back their IT budgets. Yet GBS has held its own, which Mord said is due to the company’s strong relationship with its large client base. To date, GBS, which has four employees, remains profitable, Mord said. The industry is rapidly changing and Mord said she strives to keep up with the latest technology. Recently, GBS added IP surveillance and Wi-Fi set up to its list of services as well as bundling options. As she looks to the next few years, Mord said she plans to continue to increase the company’s offerings and build upon its customer base.

Guaranteed Business Systems was founded in 1986 and assists small businesses with purchasing, configuring and implementing new technology. The company’s CEO stepped down two years ago, and Mord jumped at the chance to become the Jessica Harper is at jessica. company’s first female harper@ecm-inc.com or owner. facebook.com/sunthisweek.

Some males are forced into jobs as roofers, others made to sell magazine subscriptions door-to-door, he said. Bandemere recounted the 2007 bust of a large human trafficking ring that smuggled women and girls from abroad. Traffickers took their passports, forced them to work in brothels located all over the Twin Cities where men were charged $40 for 15 minutes.

found bloodied sheets but had done nothing. Bandemere encouraged everyone to be aware and alert authorities if they suspect trafficking is occurring. Patrick Lambertz with Men Against The Trafficking of Others said his organization is developing the first-ever curriculum for men to help decrease the demand for trafficking. He said the program will emphasize the need for men to build an authentic support community, and is seeking leaders to launch the program this spring. He plans to develop global banners to display at sporting events, where trafficking often occurs, that will include names of men who stand against modern-day slavery. “There are men who oppose human trafficking,” he said. “There are men who stand against victimization.” Shelly Duce, 46, of Burnsville said the event

The fact that this is going on right under our noses, at Mall of America and the place we frequent,” she said. “You always think about it happening in other countries.” For more information, subscribe to the Hosanna Trafficking Justice newsletter at http://eepurl.com/ nWYef.

Secondary schools may cut deans Lakeville elementary principals propose combining first, second grades by Laura Adelmann SUN THISWEEK

In an effort to reach $3.5 million in budget cuts, Lakeville Schools Superintendent Lisa Snyder has proposed eliminating deans next year at secondary schools for a savings of $450,000. The proposal would change Lakeville’s longstanding principal-dean model to the more traditional principal-associate principal model with counselors and/or specialassignment teachers to work with administration. Snyder said parents and secondary students have appreciated the dean model because they have been able to interface with one person at the schools, but it is not financially sustainable. Also proposed is for one activities director to oversee both Lakeville North and Lakeville South high schools, a sav-

ings of $130,000. Proposed for the elementary level is the elimination of learning specialists, classroom guidance positions and one counselor. The other three elementary counselors would be moved to the middle schools. Elementary principals have opposed those changes and instead have suggested combining all first and second grades district-wide. Snyder reported to the board they are studying the proposal’s feasibility and cost-savings potential. School Board Member Bob Erickson suggested at a Feb. 19 workshop that the middle school activities director could also serve at the high school level. He also suggested the associate principal model could allow them to serve a dual role as dean at the high schools.

Other proposals are to restructure to combine Digital Learning with the Technology Department and eliminate an administrator for a $130,000 savings; reduce district office support staff, a communications specialist position and cut special education services by $100,000 as the need for them is soon to decline. Snyder has also suggested the district sell some property and put an estimated $200,000 income from a non-refundable down payment although the property has not been listed and there has not been an offer. School Board Member Jim Skelly said cuts have a domino effect and asked for more details about the proposals before the board is asked to make budget decisions, expected to occur in March. He said most of the proposals avoid increasing

fees by incorporating administrative restructuring and the use of technology to protect the classroom. “We know we’re at the top of the heap for class sizes in the metro area,” Snyder said. “We really wanted to try to come up with reduction ideas or restructuring or redesign ideas that would not impact class size further.” The first draft proposal totals $3.3 million in cuts, leaving another $200,000 in reductions to be identified. “This is a work in progress,” Snyder said. The School Board will further discuss budget options at a 5 p.m. Feb. 26 work session.

Burnsville lawmaker seeks to tighten payout disclosure law Rep. Pam Myhra, RBurnsville, introduced legislation Feb. 14 to clarify the 2012 law she chiefauthored requiring more transparency for public employee separation agreements. The new legislation comes on the heels of a $64,590 payment made earlier this month to Henry Sibley High School Principal Robin Percival. The payment was part of a separation agreement with the West St. Paul-Mendota Heights-Eagan School District. The district has refused to fully explain why Percival resigned or why the payment was made, according to press reports. Myhra’s original legislation was in response to controversy in the Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School District over a $255,000 payout to Tania Chance, the district’s former hu-

Musician charged with felony assault by Jessica Harper SUN THISWEEK

An Eagan blues musician is facing felony charges for allegedly strangling his girlfriend during a dispute over music on the radio. Bernard Allison, 47, was charged on Feb. 13 in Dakota County District Court with felony domestic assault by strangulation and misdemeanor domestic assault. The criminal complaint, which lists a Lakeville address for Allison, states that he began arguing about music on the radio Feb. 11 with his girlfriend with whom he shared an Eagan apartment. Allison then allegedly began choking her for about a minute until a third person intervened. After the incident, the woman went into the bathroom to shower and heard

When the neighbor arrived, the woman left the bathroom and Allison began to yell at her and pull her hair, according to the complaint. The woman went to the neighbor’s apartment and called police. When officers arrived, they found a broken glass picture frame and red marks on the woman’s neck. In an interview with police, Allison allegedly admitted choking the woman during a dispute

Education District 191 teachers share research Approximately 70 teachers in Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School District 191, who have been researching the use of instructional technology in their classrooms this year, will share their results in a public session that begins at 4 p.m. on Thursday, March 7, in the Senior Campus, upper level, Diamondhead Education Center, 200 W.

The research is part of Improving Student Achievement Through Technology (ISATT), a major districtwide initiative to determine which technologies provide the most benefit and how best to use them.

Area Briefs Community identity project seeks artist qualifications Eagan Parks and Recreation recently completed a two-year community survey process titled “Art ‌ Be a Part.â€? The city is now seeking to display either permanent or temporary public art to represent Eagan’s community identity. Survey results showed a high interest in the concept of art and nature. Eagan holds a strong value of open space and public parks and trails. The community also expressed a desire to experience art where they are. In other words, they don’t necessarily want art to be a destination, but something that is part of their everyday life. The project should reflect this community feedback. Site: City of Eagan park outdoor space. The specific location will be determined upon review of artist submissions. Budget: Up to $5,000. Finalists will be paid $200 for proposal development. Eligibility: Applicants must reside in Minnesota. Submission requirements: Interested artists should submit the following materials: • A letter of interest of 500 words maximum, with contact information, artistic approach, and perceived value of participation on program. • Up to 10 images of work samples with descriptions of each. • Resume. One or two pages.

All applications will receive an email acknowledgement within three days of receipt. Submission materials must be received by 4:30 p.m. Friday, March 15. Send all materials to the attention of: Julie Andersen, Eagan Parks & Recreation, 3830 Pilot Knob Road, Eagan, MN 55122.

Fundraiser builds unity at Orchard Lake school by Laura Adelmann SUN THISWEEK

A student-council planned and promoted fundraiser has helped build bonds at a Lakeville elementary school. Four Orchard Lake Elementary students, the youngest in first grade, visited each classroom to talk about trips to the school nurse, highs and lows, needle pricks and the pumps attached to most of them. Their stories of living with type 1 diabetes, previously called juvenile diabetes, moved students to contribute their pennies, dimes and quarters to raise $1,000 for the Minnesota Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. Student council members dubbed their four-day initiative “Dimes 2 Dollars for Diabetes,” and matched their fundraising efforts with an educational campaign to help raise awareness and understanding about what it is like for their four classmates who live with the disease. Presenter Ellie Shaskey,

her parents immediately learned how to give her the insulin shots she would need for the rest of her life. “For the longest time, I never knew if she was high or low,” Betsy said. “I was constantly saying, ‘Are you OK?’ When she’s out of my sight, it’s very hard and scary for me.” Ellie does not let her illness stop her from enjoying sports like basketball and track, and said the hardest part of living with T1D is when her parents have to come to sleepovers to administer the day’s last injection. T1D occurs suddenly, has no cure and is not contagious. Most of the diabetic students at OLE carry a machine that automatically pumps the insulin into their system through a port that is changed every third day. Ellie still uses needles, but plans to also get a pump. OLE Student Council advisor Carol Metz said the fundraiser has helped build unity among the students and a greater un-

derstanding of their classmates’ struggles. “They were almost overly kind to them,” Metz said. “They had a whole new appreciation for what these kids go through. They were very impressed with their stories, and have a new respect for them.” She said one little girl was so moved, she donated every penny in her piggy bank, and recently saw another student helping a first-grader struggling to get his snowsuit over his pump. Some of the students may walk with Ellie at the Feb. 23 JDRF’s Juvenile Diabetes Walk at the Mall of America, and a representative of the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation will thank students at a March 1 assembly.

Belzer’s dealership shifts into expansion mode by Laura Adelmann SUN THISWEEK

Jeff Belzer’s Chevrolet, Dodge, Kia dealership is wrapping up final touches of an estimated $4 million expansion that was planned for about three years.

the elements. “People are able to take a look at the vehicle inside, and make sure there are no defects,” said Gary Lange, Belzer’s general sales manager. Amenities at the dealership include upgraded bathrooms, new desks and customer lounges with computers, expanded parking and fresh interior design elements. “We have a bigger show floor, and more cars are inside,” Lange said. Belzer’s is the largest volume Chevrolet, Dodge, Kia dealership in the Upper Midwest, Lange said, and sells more than 300 vehicles per month.

Lange said the dealership has about 150 employees and keeps close to 1,000 new and used vehicles on the lot situated within Belzer’s 40-acre parcel. “Our owner is looking into additional franchises,” Lange said. “We definitely have the property.” He added that sales are on an upward trajectory in the auto industry, and the forecast is sunny as more people who have kept vehicles longer than normal are now looking to upgrade. Another factor boosting the industry is the addition of lower payment options with longer-term

financing established in recent years in response to a challenging economy overall. Lange said those options, pent-up need and the new lineup of vehicles adds up to an industry expectation of a brisk spring. “The March 9 auto show at the Minneapolis Convention Center is the spring kickoff for the selling season,” Lange said. “And everyone says there is going to be record crowds.” Laura Adelmann is at laura.adelmann@ecm-inc. com or facebook.com/sunthisweek.

Sisters team up for Next Act After closing of quilt business, siblings open furniture and home decor shop by Andrew Miller SUN THISWEEK

Patti Peltz didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t give herself much of a vacation between the closing of her quilt business and the opening of her furniture and home decor shop. Peltz, whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d run the quilt store Fabric Town in Apple Valleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Time Square Shopping Center for about nine years, shuttered that business in July with plans to open Next Act just a few doors down. While Next Act didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t officially open until October, work began immediately, Peltz recounted. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The day Fabric Town closed, I was inside Fabric Town painting furniture

for Next Act,â&#x20AC;? she said. Peltz has a partner in the new business â&#x20AC;&#x201C; her sister, Nancy Donahue. Donahue is the businessâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; owner and Peltz is the manager, but they share in the painting duties, which has the siblings refurbishing old furniture in the rear of the shop. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been logging long hours since Next Actâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s opening in the fall. Though the store is open for business four days a week â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Thursday through Sunday â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the siblings say theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been working seven-day weeks as they paint their inventory. Much of that inventory is acquired by Donahue

on what she calls â&#x20AC;&#x153;search and rescueâ&#x20AC;? missions â&#x20AC;&#x201C; visits to auctions, estate sales and other places where old furniture can be picked up on the cheap. The sisters tout Next Act as a â&#x20AC;&#x153;greenâ&#x20AC;? business, selling environmentally friendly furniture paint and offering weekly workshops to teach others to â&#x20AC;&#x153;go green.â&#x20AC;? Plus thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a recycling element at the root of the business, Peltz said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We take previously loved furniture and refinish, refurbish and repurpose things that may have ended up in our landfills,â&#x20AC;? she said. Next Act is located at

7635 148th St. W. and its day. hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. More about the busiThursday and Friday; 10 ness is at www.nextact2. a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday; com. and noon to 4 p.m. Sun-

Sisters Nancy Donahue, left, and Patti Peltz opened their furniture and home decor shop Next Act in Apple Valleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Time Square Shopping Center last fall. Peltz formerly ran Fabric Town, a now-shuttered quilting store located a few doors down from Next Act. TEACHERS, from 1A would keep it together this long,â&#x20AC;? Walters said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m really proud that not only have we managed to keep the program happening, but it has grown and it has received continuous community support.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Class Actsâ&#x20AC;? has become a District 191 institution, raising a total of $222,000 in scholarship funds for graduating seniors at the districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s high school and alternative high school. Last year, 10 scholarships of $1,000 each were awarded. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We generally have one or two sold-out performances each year, and the and the staff deserves that,â&#x20AC;? Walters said. Nearly 150 teachers are involved in this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s production. Preparation begins in the fall. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pretend that this is absolutely high art,â&#x20AC;?

Walters said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;However, there are some extremely talented people, extremely talented musicians and vocalists. I would begin to name them, but I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to leave anybody out. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And students love it because they enjoy seeing their teachers in a unique environment outside the classroom. They enjoy seeing their teachers courageously make fools of themselves, and everyone has a good time.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Class Actsâ&#x20AC;? is a staff morale-booster, bringing together teachers from across a large school district, Walters said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a beautiful thing,â&#x20AC;? said Walters, who has also been busy directing the high schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s winter production of Shakespeareâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Taming of the Shrew.â&#x20AC;? He credits the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Class Actsâ&#x20AC;? co-chairs â&#x20AC;&#x201D; school psychologist Holly Schultz and Metcalf Junior High

teacher Lucretia Jeffers â&#x20AC;&#x201D; with doing much of the heavy lifting on this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s show. Teachers will sing, play instruments, act in skits, tell jokes and dance. A flash mob, a rapper and special effects are promised. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The theme of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;GO BIG or GO HOME!â&#x20AC;&#x2122; encapsulates the idea that for the 25th anniversary, we are pulling out all the stops for the biggest show yet,â&#x20AC;?

Sports Blaze’s Hett second at state Nordic meet by Mike Shaughnessy SUN THISWEEK

Burnsville junior Vivian Hett didn’t win the state Nordic skiing championship, but she’s not about to complain. “It was a lot better than I thought,” she said of her second-place finish last week at Giants Ridge in Biwabik. “I was going for top five and hoping to improve over last year.” She has skied at state every year since seventh grade, and her finish and time have improved each season. She also helped Burnsville to seventh place in the girls team competition at the state meet Thursday at Giants Ridge. Hett’s combined time for the 5-kilometer freestyle and 5K classic race was 34 minutes, 21 seconds. Hett, who finished eighth in the 2012 state meet, was third after the freestyle leg of Thursday’s race. She was able to pass Roseville senior

Nicolette Reker on the classic leg but not Duluth East senior Anna Kubek, who went on to win in 33:58.9. “I passed (Reker) at about 2.5 kilometers” of the classic leg, Hett said. “The conditions were so fast, and I knew it would be hard to catch (Kubek). I could hardly even see her.” Kubek, a senior, did not compete during the high school Nordic season in 2011-12 because of commitments to the U.S. junior biathlon team. Hett said her technique in both disciplines – freestyle and classic – has steadily improved, and twice-weekly 6:15 a.m. weightlifting sessions have been a big help, too. She will compete in the U.S. Ski Association Junior Nationals beginning March 7 in Fairbanks, Alaska. Burnsville coach Chris Harvey, also one of the Midwest Junior National

Team coaches, said Hett is capable of top-10 finishes at that meet even though she will move up an age division to 16-17 J1. Hett also will go into next season as one of the favorites for the state high school individual championship. Two Burnsville skiers – Kathy Klungness in 1980 and Sharmila Ahmed in 2011 – have won state individual titles. “I’ve known Sharmila for a long time, and Sharmila and my sister (Erica Hett, a senior at Gustavus Adolphus College) are close friends,” Hett said. “What I learned from Sharmila was to have fun and never give up. She missed almost all of her junior season because of an injury then came back and won the state championship her senior year.” Burnsville dropped one place from its 2012 state girls team finish despite scoring 313 points, 31 more

than last year. Wayzata won the state team title with 365, three more than defending champion Duluth East. Harvey said the Blaze was initially disappointed about its finish before looking at the numbers more closely. “Our second, third and fourth skiers all moved up about 20 places from last year,” the coach said. “I think the state meet was more competitive this year. Last year the teams were more spread out, but this year the top teams were more closely bunched.” Jordan Horner was Burnsville’s second finisher at the state race, placing 52nd in 38:11.5. Sophomore Jane Koch (74th, 39:08.4), junior Tori Felton (85th, 39:48.1), senior Kjerstin Narvesen (93rd, 40:29), junior Krista Bain (100th, 40:53.4) and eighthgrader Krista Holmstrom (111th, 42:26.2) also skied for Burnsville.

With six of the top seven skiers returning next year, Burnsville’s expectations will be on the rise. “To win, it usually takes four skiers finishing in the top 25,” Harvey said. “A realistic goal for us would be to get on the (awards) podium in third place. To do that, we’ll have to have four skiers in the top 50.”

Nordic notes One other South Suburban Conference skier finished in the top 10 of the girls race – Eagan senior Sonja Hedblom, who was 10th in 35:35.5. Other local competitors in the girls state meet included Eastview ninthgrader Margie Freed, who finished 37th in 37:08.8 and Eagan senior Roxanne Holt, 50th in 37:50.6. Eden Prairie won the boys team championship with 378 points, 20 more than runner-up Ely. Eagan was seventh with 304.

Nicholas Acton, a senior, was the Wildcats’ top finisher, placing 18th in 31:22.8. Joshua Podpeskar, a junior, was 57th in 32:52.8. Also skiing for Eagan were junior Jacob Edmond (87th, 33:58.6), senior Ryan Larson (88th, 33:59.1), junior Brady Mavetz (108th, 36:36.1), eighth-grader Patrick Acton (112th, 36:39.7) and sophomore Christopher Acton (115th, 37:47.8). Two Apple Valley boys also skied in the state meet. Junior Rhett Carlson was 102nd in 35:13.1 and sophomore Grant Udelhofen finished 104th in 35:19. Hopkins senior Jakob Ellingson was the boys individual champion in 29:24.4, finishing 1.2 seconds ahead of Eden Prairie senior Thomas Bye. Bloomington Jefferson freshman Zak Ketterson was the top finisher from the South Suburban Conference, taking third in 29:49.7.

Wildcats patch things together, return to state Eagan girls hockey players show they’re survivors by Mike Shaughnessy SUN THISWEEK

Going back to the state girls hockey tournament had been Eagan’s goal all year, but at the start of the season nobody could be sure if that was realistic. Sure, the Wildcats had some dynamic players, including senior Megan Wolfe, who went on to be a Ms. Hockey award candidate. But they also had a lot of uncertainty. There was a new coaching staff and the Wildcats needed to find another starting goalie to replace a player who had transferred. The Wildcats woke up Jan. 1 to find themselves barely above .500 at 8-7. In 2013 they located their equilibrium, won 10 of their next 13 games and finished tied for the South Suburban Conference championship. The Section 3AA playoffs brought more rocky moments for the Wildcats, but they showed they are survivors. After defeating Rosemount, Hastings and Eastview in the section tourney, Eagan is back in the state tournament for the second year in a row and the eighth time overall. Eagan went two-andout at state last year, something the team does not want to repeat. “We don’t want it to turn out like last year,” when the Wildcats lost

both of their state Class AA tournament games, senior forward Kelsey Walsh said. “This time our goal is to win our first game (at state) and go from there.” The Wildcats (18-9-1), unseeded at state, played third-seeded Hill-Murray (19-5-4) in a Class AA quarterfinal game Thursday, after this edition went to press. For more information about that game, visit www.sunthisweek. com. After Eagan defeated Eastview 6-4 in the section championship game last week in Inver Grove Heights, coach Tom Younghans went into the locker room and, with tongue firmly in cheek, announced a 5 p.m. practice the next day. They could laugh now. At the beginning of the season, Younghans sensed a little tension. Despite his hockey credentials – including more than 400 NHL games played, most of them with the Minnesota North Stars – the firstyear Eagan head coach said he saw that he needed to earn the players’ trust. Longtime Eagan coach Scott Darwitz resigned unexpectedly late last summer and joined the staff at Lakeville South, where his daughter – former Eagan star Natalie Darwitz – is head coach. Eagan had to scramble to conduct a coaching search

Eagan’s Tommy Anderson fifth at state alpine by Mike Shaughnessy SUN THISWEEK

Eagan ninth-grader Tommy Anderson finished fifth in the state boys Alpine skiing meet Feb. 13 at Giants Ridge Ski Area. He had the secondhighest finish of any South Suburban Conference skier in the boys or girls competition. Anderson had a two-run time of 1 minute, 15.51 seconds. Anderson had the fifth-best time on each of the two runs. The fastest South Suburban skier in the meet was Bloomington Jefferson’s Michael Murray, who won the boys state championship in 1:13.67, about half a second faster than Jack McNeil of Blake. Anderson, who won the Section 4 individual championship Feb. 6, finished 11th in the 2012 state meet. Burnsville senior Tom Flickinger was 32nd in 1:21.79, an improvement of nine places over his 2012 state finish. Flickinger’s teammate, sopho-

more Jon Garbe, was 62nd in 1:30.42. Apple Valley ninthgrader Robert Hapke finished 32nd in 1:22.70. Eagan junior Sally Anderson placed in the top 10 in the girls state meet, finishing ninth in 1:19.29. She was .16 behind Amanda Larson of Lakeville South, who placed eighth and was the top South Suburban Conference finisher in the girls meet. Anderson placed 21st at state last year. She won the Section 4 individual championship last week, finishing half a second ahead of Elizabeth Koprucki of East Ridge. Koprucki won the state championship Wednesday with a combined time of 1:15.52. Burnsville junior Liz Drusch also qualified for the state girls meet and finished 40th in 1:27.72.

and settled on Younghans. “I think we have a great staff, but we knew there would be some bumps along the way,” Younghans said. “I could tell that they really liked Scott, but the girls have been really receptive to what I’ve had to say. And I think I’ve responded to some of the things they’ve asked me to do as the coach.” “I think now we’re all pretty comfortable with each other,” Walsh said. Nothing came easily for Eagan in the section tournament. The Wildcats fell behind eighthseeded Rosemount 3-0 in their quarterfinal game but came back to win 5-4 in overtime. In the semifinals, they trailed Hastings 1-0 after two periods before winning 3-1. They grabbed a 3-0 first-period lead against Eastview, only to see the Lightning tie the game by the 9:08 mark of the second period. “A 3-0 lead is one of the hardest leads to play with,” said Younghans, who was forced to call a timeout after Eastview tied the game. “But we’ve also been in a lot of close games, and I think our kids know how to win in a tough spot.” Wolfe scored on a breakaway 59 seconds after Eastview’s tying goal to put Eagan back in front and complete a hat trick. Rachel Wall scored in the

Kendra Callister and Emily Goff also scored for Eagan in the section title game, and Shelby Williams had three assists. The Wildcats didn’t go into the state tournament as the favorites, but af-

ter this season they aren’t likely to see anything that will catch them off-guard. Mike Shaughnessy is at mike.shaughnessy@ecm-inc. com or facebook.com/sunthisweek.

Notebook: Eastview pins down academic title

It was the last gymnastics meet at home com or facebook.com/sun- for Torres, a senior who will compete in track and field at thisweek. Hillsdale College in Michigan next year.

The state high school wrestling tournament isn’t until next week, but several champions already have been identified. Eastview won the Class AAA academic title for the second consecutive year and the third time in the last four years. The Lightning had a 3.74 team gradepoint average. Blue Earth (Class A) and New London-Spicer (Class AA) also won state academic titles. Both are repeat champions as well. The Minnesota Wrestling Coaches Association awards academic team championships. Teams take the top 10 GPAs from their 19-wrestler section rosters in applying for the award. Eagan, Lakeville North and Rosemount earned gold plaques for team GPAs of 3.50 or higher. Apple Valley and Farmington received silver plaques for team GPAs of 3.0 to 3.49. According to the coaches association, 21 of the 24 teams that qualified for the state tournament earned

a gold or silver plaque for academic performance.

One step forward, one back Eastview waited several weeks for a chance to pull even with Bloomington Kennedy in South Suburban Conference girls basketball. The Lightning got that chance and took advantage of it, only to fall back again a few days later. Eastview defeated No. 1-ranked Bloomington Kennedy 66-46 on Feb. 15, avenging a 57-49 loss to the Eagles on Jan. 2 and temporarily tying them for first place in the league. On Tuesday night, however, Lakeville South upset Eastview 58-53 while Kennedy beat Bloomington Jefferson 73-25. That put Kennedy one game in front of Eastview in the South Suburban with one game remaining. Sophomore guard Madison Guebert scored 24 points and senior forward Tyra Johnson had 17 in Eastview’s victory over Kennedy last week. No See NOTEBOOK, 14A

JUNIOR APPLE VALLEY HIGH SCHOOL Rhett Carlson has represented Apple Valley High School as a member of the ISD 196 Nordic Ski team for five years. This season, he qualified for his second consecutive trip to the state meet held at Giantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ridge. In addition to two trips to state, Rhett also qualified for junior nationals as a sophomore. That event was held in Utah at the site of the 2002 Olympics venue, Soldier Hollow. His best finish came in his last freestyle competition where he finished 3rd on his team and 15th overall. AWARDS & ACCOMPLISHMENTS: 2012 and 2013 State Tournament Participant 2012 Junior Nationals Competitor

FRESHMAN EASTVIEW HIGH SCHOOL Margie Freed joined the Eastview High School Girls Nordic Ski team this year as a freshman and immediately made an impact. An extremely hard-working skier who improved tremendously as the season progressed, her efforts in practice spurred a young EVHS team to set high goals for themselves and put in the work necessary to achieve at this level. Margieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s regular season results were stellar with her finishing among the top 5-6 skiers at each South Suburban Conference (SSC) meet. Entering the post-season, big things were expected from Margie and she came through with flying colors leading the Eastview Girls team, on which 6 of 7 varsity skiers are freshmen, to a 2nd place finish in the SSC Pursuit Championships and a similar finish (2nd place by 6-points) in the Section â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 1 Meet. Qualifying for the State Championships, a relatively rare occurrence for a freshman, Margie finished in 37th place with excellent races in both freestyle and classic techniques. Though the high school season is over, Margie will continue training for the National Junior Olympics to be held in Fairbanks Alaska in mid-March where she will be a member of the strong Midwest team. AWARDS & ACCOMPLISHMENTS: South Suburban Conference: All Conference - 5th place pursuit (4th pl. classic / 6th pl. freestyle) Section â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 1 Championships: 4th place pursuit (5th pl. classic/4th pl. freestyle) MSHSL Nordic Championships: 37th place pursuit (35th freestyle/40th pl. classic) Junior Olympics: Earned position on Midwest Team for National Junior Olympics to be held in Fairbanks Alaska in March 2013 MSHSL Cross Country Championships: 35th place

Congratulations to this weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s highlighted athletes! Each will receive a $10 Gift Certificate to Paragon Odyssey 15 in Burnsville, courtesy of Paragon Odyssey 15 and Sun Thisweek.

Bill may eliminate statute of limitations in child sex cases

ABUSE, from 1A ful and supportive, others did not believe her, lost evidence or warned her against “pushing John’s buttons.” In 2002 Tester initiated a divorce, and Block tried to protect Mikayla from his escalating rage and violence as custody issues arose. “John would fight with me, yell obscenities and give me orders in front of Mikayla during visitation exchanges,” she said. Their custody evaluator recommended a “communication notebook” that Block called “a terrible idea” that put Mikayla in the middle of their conflicts. “I was so relieved when I’d pick Mikayla up from his house and she’d run to my car,” Block said. “I was in constant fear he was going to harm all of us, or her in front of me.” Despite thick records documenting the years of abuse, restraining orders and violations of those orders and threats, Tester was allowed unsupervised visitation with Mikayla. “His abusive behavior didn’t affect the custody parenting-time decisions,” Block said. “It was clear to me the violence we’d endured had no impact upon the court.” During visits, Block said Tester told Mikayla her mom was going to die and that bombs hit apartment buildings like the one they lived in; he stalked and harassed Block with Mikayla in tow. Tester called Block from the car on Sept. 4, 2004, telling her he was “sorry,” then he coached Mikayla to tell her mom they were in a new car and going on a journey. Block sensed there was something wrong, but police said Tester had not done anything that indicated a need for action. “I was always told to document and report things,” Block said. “But most of the people I dealt with ignored

Traumatized victims of childhood sexual abuse should not be walled off from seeking justice against predators by a fleeting statute of limitation, advocates of legislation argue. “Should I apologize for my own self, protecting me,” James Keenan, a victim of childhood sexual abuse, said of missing the current legal window. Currently, childhood sexual abuse victims must file suit against predators or institutions within six years of becoming adults – age 24, explained bill authors Rep. Steve Simon, DFLSt. Louis Park, and Sen. Ron Latz, DFL-St. Louis Park. The two attorneys, who describe their legislation as simple and straightforward, argue the nature of childhood sexual abuse can make meeting a six-year window an impossibility. Their legislation would eliminate the existing statute of limitations and allow victims of childhood sexual abuse to file suit at any time. “I didn’t become aware of my abuse until adulthood,” said Keenan, of Savage, who as an altar boy was abused by a priest but saw his lawsuit dismissed by the state Supreme Court on the grounds the statue of limitations had run

cross to escape legal actions, advocates said. Under the bill, this will change, Latz argued. “Delay is not a safe harbor for these institutions,” Latz, chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee, said. Bills dealing with the statute of limitations and sexual abuse litigation have been proposed before. Simon and Latz view their legislation as superior for its simplicity. Not that filing a suit regarding actions that took place many years or even decades ago is easy. It isn’t, Simon said. But it belongs in the courts. “This should be in the hands of judges and juries to decide,” Simon said. Should the lawmakers’ legislation find success, Keenan, for one, isn’t automatically going back to court. A journey through the legal system isn’t fun, he said. “It was hard on myself. It was hard on my wife. It was hard on my kids,” said Keenan, who filed suit at age 39 for abuse committed when he was 13 to 15 years old. Just before leaving for the State Capitol on Wednesday, Feb. 13, his wife, Keenan said, asked if he would again go to court. “‘Honey, we’d have to talk a lot about it,’” he said.

SUN THISWEEK - Burnsville - Eagan February 22, 2013 19A

Thisweekend ‘Casablanca’ opens Classic Film Night series Rosemount Area Arts Council event is March 8 at Steeple Center by Andrew Miller SUN THISWEEK

Don’t be surprised if you see a few Humphrey Bogart lookalikes ambling about downtown Rosemount in a few weeks. For its screening of “Casablanca” on March 8 at the city’s Steeple Center, the Rosemount Area Arts Council is encouraging guests to dress in “Casablanca”-inspired attire. The iconic white suit worn by Humphrey Bogart, Ingrid Bergman’s khaki blazer, Sydney Greenstreet’s fez – just some of the wardrobe options classic film enthusiasts will have at their disposal. “I know of three people

who have already bought white suits, and two guys who went to Goodwill and bought trenchcoats,” said Ted Hammond, a Rosemount Area Arts Council board member who’s chairing the event. Hammond emphasized that “Casablanca” attire is encouraged but optional at the screening, which is the first in the arts council’s Classic Film Night series. The arts council is billing Classic Movie Night as a “date night”-type activity, and has partnered with Rudy’s Red Eye Grill in Rosemount, which will offer dinner discounts to filmgoers the night of the “Casablanca” event. The screening will include a “Casablanca” trivia contest, and a concession stand featuring popcorn that producers hope will conjure the taste and smell theater-goers would have experienced

at the premiere of “Casablanca” back in 1942. “We’re doing real popcorn with real butter – we researched how they make the popcorn at the Lagoon theater in Minneapolis,” Hammond said. While the arts council has envisioned Classic Film Night as an ongoing series, additional screenings have yet to be finalized. After “Casablanca,” the next film event will probably be held in the summer or fall, Hammond said. Tickets for “Casa- Guests at the March 8 screening of “Casablanca” are encouraged to come dressed as blanca” are $5 and can be Humphrey Bogart, Ingrid Bergman or other characters from the iconic 1942 film. pruchased at the Steeple Center, 14375 S.

20A February 22, 2013 SUN THISWEEK - Burnsville - Eagan

COMCAST, from 1A often charges between $6 and $7 for additional outlets. Previously subscribers of basic cable, which typically includes about 20 channels, were not required to have a DTA to view programming. That will change in March when Comcast converts all its cable services to digital. Of Comcast’s 15,000 subscribers in Eagan, 3,000 have basic cable to date, Logan said. The conversion will free bandwidth and provide improved service, he said. Some residents expressed concern about losing HD quality provided by their television by connecting to a DTA. Logan admitted the DTA will provide standard quality only, not HD. Comcast will offer basic cable subscribers up to three free outlets, but Eagan residents and city officials worry how long the free deal will last. “The question is whether basic customers will be charged for it, which can be difficult for these people, particularly those on a fixed income,” HOSPITAL, from 1A Plans call for a 130,000-square-foot medical office building in back of the hospital, behind the emergency entrance, and a 40,000-squarefoot hospital expansion. Eventually, the hospital’s main entrance will likely be shifted from the north side of the building to the south, hospital officials say. The new five-story building will have a skyway connection to the hospital. A three-level, 400-stall parking ramp is also planned. Ground-breaking is planned for this spring.

said Bryan Grogan, attorney from Moss and Barnett, which represents Eagan in communication issues. Logan assured residents and the council that Comcast has no intentions at this time to charge basic cable subscribers for the additional outlets.

Transparency issues At the Tuesday meeting, City Council members grilled Comcast representatives about the changes and criticized the company for having a lack of transparency and poor communication with its customers. “It feels like Comcast is very well versed with language when it is in front of our communications attorney or the FCC, but it is conveniently confusing when selling to its customers,” Mayor Mike Maguire said. Grogan pointed out that at least one version of the letters sent to customers stated the $1.99 fee applied to each DTA box, but company representatives say the fee is for each outlet. Logan admitted the About half of the expansion is expected to be finished by the end of next year, according to the city. “This is certainly the biggest expansion in the history of the hospital,” Krehbiel said in an interview. “We’ve done lots of expansions and adding on.” This one is more strategic than past additions that added basic capacity, she said. The City Council approved measures Feb. 19 that set the stage for the expansion. The development plans will go before the council on March 19, Krehbiel said. The Feb. 19 actions also involve land owned

letters created confusion, but clarified the fee is applied to additional outlets and applies only to digital cable subscribers. “There was some wording that was poorly worded,” he said. Council members further criticized Comcast for being unclear about rates by failing to include additional fees such as 911, franchise and others in their quotes. “What I’d like to see is increased transparency,” Council Member Paul Bakken said. “Then people can make informed decisions in a free market.” Logan argued that although the company isn’t always clear in its language, it is transparent about its rates and fees. Eagan residents and council members also expressed disappointment in Comcast’s customer service. “I’ve been a customer for at least a decade and I have never associated Comcast with customer service excellence,” Maguire said. Logan insisted Comcast strives to adhere to high standards and improve its customer ser-

Eagan officials plan to send a letter to the FCC and local Congressional leaders expressing their concern with what they perceive to be Comcast’s lack of transparency and poor customer service, as well as their concerns about the inconsistency in allowing some cities such as Inver Grove Heights to regulate cable providers but not others due to subscriber percentages.
