Wing wolfing, well wishing Slain officer brought home for burial Apple Valley native remembered as kind-hearted cop, dedicated mom by Andrew Miller SUN THISWEEK
Heather Watkins Hirsch wants people to remember the kind and intensely driven person her sister was. Her sister, Kathryn “Michelle” Walters, knew she wanted to be a police officer even before her freshman year at Apple Valley High School, and when as an adult she signed on with the Metropolitan Police Department in Las Vegas, she brought a big heart to the job. Once, Watkins Hirsch recalled, Michelle was involved in the arrest of a woman accused of stealing milk. When the woman told her she needed the milk to feed her kids, Michelle drove off in her squad car, returning a short time later with a supply of milk for the woman she’d purchased with her own money. “That’s just who she was,” said Watkins Hirsch, of Savage. “She wore her heart on her sleeve. She was the most giving per-

Former video store to house pet clinic Lexington Pet Clinic to move to 2,400 square-foot building in April by Jessica Harper SUN THISWEEK
After only six months on the market, the former Video Update property in Eagan will soon have a new tenant — one that will cater to residents’ fourlegged friends. Lexington Pet Clinic in Eagan plans to move in April to the 2,400 squarefoot building at 1095 Diffley Road. The building is twice the size of the clinic’s current facility on Lexington Avenue, which will allow the growing business to expand its services to include grooming and dogtraining classes. “Our clients have been asking about these ser-

Editor’s note: This story is the second installment in a Sun Thisweek series on human trafficking that began last week. All the stories are at www.SunThisweek. com. by Laura Adelmann SUN THISWEEK
Minnesota is leading the way nationally to establish a program to rescue juvenile sex trafficking victims. State law was changed in 2011 to recognize teens sold for sex as victims, but a lack of options has often left them grouped with criminals. Beaten or brainwashed into pimp loyalty, most teen sex trafficking victims police rescue would run from shelters, said police Sgt. John Bandemer of the St. Paul Human Trafficking Task Force. To be kept safe, the young victims police encounter usually end up in juvenile detention. New legislation being carried by Sen. Sandy Pappas, DFL-St. Paul, and Rep. Susan Allen, DFL-Minneapolis, would establish the nation’s first comprehensive statewide network to provide secure shelter and targeted, culturally appropriate services to juvenile sex trafficking victims. Based on the Minnesota Public Safety Office of Justice report “No Wrong Door: A Comprehensive Approach to Safe
Harbor for Sexually Exploited Youth,” released in January, the $13.5 million bill would establish a connected structure of services, resources and a safe-house escape system that could break bonds and change lives. The bill designates funds for construction or remodeling to provide safe shelters and resources. It provides training programs for workers such as health care providers and hotel staffers who may encounter sexually exploited children but not recognize the signs of control and bravado or fear and misplaced loyalty. “One of the problems is that these girls don’t often see themselves as victims,” said Patty Wetterling, Sexual Violence Prevention Program director at the Minnesota Department of Health. “It’s ‘My boyfriend, my boyfriend takes care of me.’ They don’t see … it’s just part of the sickness of the whole setup.” Human bodies provide traffickers with a constant revenue stream, said Suzanne Koepplinger, executive director of the Minnesota Indian Women’s Resource Center. She said selling child rape is more profitable to the manipulative and abusive traffickers than dealing drugs that can only be sold once. The bill creates a national model for a coordinated response system to help minor girls escape the sex slavery system that

His fate remains unknown. is ruthlessly controlled and can traffic them around the world. “In some trafficking circles, there’s organized crime, there’s international organized networks involved; in some, it’s local gangs,” Koepplinger said. “Sometimes, it’s families.” Bandemer said the system has gone online and is everywhere, from small towns to large cities, including cities in Dakota County. Lewd online ads entice johns with headlines like “2 beautifull (sic) ladys (sic) in Apple Valley” stating “both want to play,” and “Katy KaBoom!” announcing she was “back in Eagan.” Her ad included a disclaimer that stated “Any $ exchanged is for time & companionship only.

PROGRAM, from 2A victims and four traffickers were arrested, including one trafficker who escaped detection by using a stolen Illinois driver’s license of a trucker he resembled. Although someone appeared in court and pleaded guilty to the prostitution charge, Lakeville police investigated and requested the plea be vacated. Trafficking victims included women from Apple Valley, Minnetonka, Byron and Shakopee. Under the legislation, a full-time statewide human trafficking director would oversee and coordinate the system from the Department of Health. Six regional specialists, two in the metro area, and 14 outreach workers, all funded through grants, would coordinate the local response to help trafficking victims. The model is also a result of Minnesota’s 2011 Safe Harbor for Sexually Exploited Youth Law, which in part requires a first-time diversion by 2014 for any 16- or 17-year-old who has been exploited by prostitution. It is a victim-centered response championed by local officials, including Dakota County Attorney James Backstrom, who supported passage of the Safe Harbor Act. “If we recognize that children who have been prostituted or who have prostituted themselves are actually victims of sexual exploitation and abuse,
not offenders of delinquent acts, we can help them,” Backstrom wrote to legislators in March 2011. The new bill defines how that promised help could happen. Jeff Bauer, chief lobbyist for the Safe Harbor Act, said regional specialists would know of local shelters and how to get victims there or determine if they should be relocated for safety reasons. He said outreach workers would be placed in existing organizations across the state “to make sure we’re reaching every child that we possibly can.” Bauer added that a 2012 cost-benefit study conducted by University of Minnesota researchers determined the state will save $34 for every dollar invested in the No Wrong Door model, primarily in the areas of public health and corrections. “If you’re only concerned about Minnesota’s budget, this is still a really smart investment,” he told advocates gathered at Dakota County’s Northern Service Center Feb. 4 for a Minnesota Human Trafficking Task Force meeting, adding that he hoped he’d have support for the proposal on moral grounds alone.

St. Paul man sentenced to nearly 14 years in Eagan prostitution bust by Jessica Harper SUN THISWEEK
A St. Paul man will spend nearly 14 years in prison for assisting in the prostitution of two teenage girls at an Eagan hotel. Giorgio Jovan Baymon, 25, was sentenced in Ramsey County District Court on Jan. 31 to 166 months in prison. He received credit for 134 days served. Baymon pleaded guilty Oct. 5 to promotion of prostitution of minors. As part of his plea deal, Baymon testified against his codefendant, Brandon Barnes. According to the criminal complaint, Baymon posted a listing on Backpage.com with explicit photographs and cell phone numbers of two girls, ages 16 and
17. After Baymon told the g i r l s about t h e i r ad on BackGiorgio page. Baymon c o m , men began visiting an Eagan hotel room for sex in exchange for money. Police arrested the two men while tracking the girls, one of whom was a runaway. The girls told police Baymon and Barnes forced them into prostitution. Baymon has several previous convictions including second-degree assault with a dangerous weapon in 2008 and felony domestic assault in 2010.
Barnes pleaded guilty Jan. 14 to promoting prostitution of minors. His sentencing hearing is March 1. Both men were initially charged with engaging in sex trafficking of minors, and two counts of promoting prostitution of minors. An Elko man was also arrested for meeting the girls for sex at the hotel after responding to the online ad. Mickey Albert Cupkie, 36, pleaded guilty in September to four counts of engaging in prostitution with a minor. Cupkie is scheduled to be sentenced Feb. 28 in Ramsey County District Court.

inal complaint, Zieper drilled a hole in a tissue box cover and placed his cell phone inside to record a 15-year-old relative undress before taking a shower. The girl noticed a light coming from the box and found the phone inside. She noticed the phone was running a mobile ap-
plication that allowed live video to stream to a personal computer. The following day, the girl reported the incident to her mother, who then called police. Zieper’s sentencing hearing is April 9 in Hastings. —Jessica Harper

Opinion Law enforcement, school officials vigilant about security by Don Heinzman SUN THISWEEK
Sheriffs in the Twin Cities metropolitan area believe children in schools are as safe as possible, and plans are in place if they are called to a major disturbance. Most high schools and middle schools have armed police officers either in or nearby. Only on occasion do they go to an elementary school. Since the mass murders at Columbine High School in Colorado, every officer in their first year of training takes point-of-entry drills and how to confront a shooter. They are taught to go into the building immediately and confront the shooter. Calls from school officials about a student entering school with a weapon are rare. Dakota County Sheriff Dave Bellows said several years ago, a student walked into Hasting High School with a gun, but fortunately it jammed. He says the response to that call was excellent and officers poured into that building. In Anoka County, right after the Sandy Hook Elementary School shoot-
Sun Thisweek Columnist
ing, two students made threats and both were suspended, said Sheriff James Stuart. Sheriffs said that students go through a lockdown drill four times a year, and officers are there to observe some of the drills. School boards undoubtedly will discuss more safety measures during their upcoming meetings, but I don’t expect much to change except for the possible placement of cameras. As for arming local school personnel, a principal in the Elk River district says he hasn’t come to that point, although he and teachers recently have discussed other safety measures. An elementary principal in the Anoka-Hennepin district says arming school staff would do more harm than
good. An elementary school principal from the Burnsville district asks if the public really wants to spend money for metal detectors and armed guards. He doesn’t want to see that. The principals I spoke to said that in their experience, no one has tried to enter the building brandishing a weapon; no one has threatened them physically. After the Sandy Hook shooting, some parents in Burnsville called and wanted to know how safe the school was. They were assured a crisis plan is in place. Students didn’t talk much about the Sandy Hook shooting, and teachers were directed not to discuss it, unless students brought it up. The principal in the Anoka-Hennepin district said she and her staff reflected on the Sandy Hook shooting and made one change so that all personnel in the building know how to access the intercom system. Teachers confront anyone in the building to make sure they have a pass and that they have signed in. They are uncomfortable doing it, but they do it.
The local police and fire personnel are quick to respond to any calls. Periodically, a police officer stops by the elementary school. In some schools, police liaison officers are close by. In one Burnsville elementary school, the principal said all entrances are locked except the front door leading to a foyer where a second set of doors are locked, except one leading directly to the principal’s office. Teachers with two-way radios monitor the playgrounds during recess. They also have access to the intercom system in their rooms. Principals say they always think about safety when students are in the building. Said one, when you don’t think about it, you probably should stop being the principal.

With strong options through Minnesota, state’s charter law ranked No. 1 by Joe Nathan CENTER FOR SCHOOL CHANGE
Minnesota educators, students, parents and policy-makers received another honor last week: The National Alliance for Public Charter Schools ranked our state’s charter law as No. 1 in the country. Thanks to a strong law, suburban and rural, as well as urban Minnesota families have high quality options, including district and charter schools. Most Minnesota families continue using district public schools. But research by our Center for School Change found that over the last decade, the number of Minnesota students enrolled in charters increased by almost 30,000, while the number of students attending district schools declined by more than 40,000 students. Whether their preference is a Montessori elementary, or junior-senior high, a classical academy that teaches Latin, an arts-focused high school, a project-based school promoting “hands-on” learning, Chinese immersion, or an online school, Minnesota’s charter law has helped create new options for families throughout the state. Gov. Mark Dayton and Education
Sun Thisweek Columnist
Commissioner Brenda Cassellius have wisely recommended that districts and charters spend more time learning from each other, and less time debating which is better, district or charter public schools. Both kinds of public schools vary widely. Here are examples of what Minnesota’s charter law has helped produce: Minnesota New Country in Henderson offers a “project-based” hands-on approach that attracts seventh through 12th graders from more than 30 miles. Ridgeway in southeastern Minnesota offers families with elementary students the opportunity to keep students with the same teacher for two years. Eagle Ridge Academy, a K-12 charter in Eden Prairie, isn’t necessarily “better” or “worse” than the district schools. It provides a “classical” edu-
cation for families, as well as a single building to which families can send all their children, if they choose to do so. The Main Street School of Performing Arts in Hopkins offers a smaller, more arts-focused option to larger suburban high schools. Some students and families prefer the larger high school, some prefer a small, more focused school. Partnership Academy in Richfield works with mostly Spanish-speaking students and families, once again, in a smaller setting than area public schools. Trio/Wolf Creek, Edvisions Off Campus, and Minnesota Virtual High School provide online learning programs for families throughout the state. Northern Lake Academy and Lakes International Charters in Forest Lake are different from Forest Lake Public Schools. The district also has just received an award from the University of Minnesota’s Humphrey School for its collaboration with charters. Minnesota is learning that district and charter public schools, like colleges and universities, can simultaneously compete and cooperate. It’s not one or
the other. It can be both. Our Center runs several programs in which district and charter leaders and teachers are learning with and from each other. While pleased that Minnesota’s ranked No. 1, Al Fan, director of the Minnesota-based Charter School Partners, commented, “We must do a better job of utilizing the charter model to create great schools for all Minnesota kids.” Eugene Piccolo, executive director of the Minnesota Association of Charter Schools, said: “Our law is a dynamic document that we work to refine as the charter school movement evolves, and strives to achieve the purposes and goals of public charter schools.” His organization provides a list and map, plus other information about charters at www.mncharterschools.org/directories.

To the editor: Recent letters have given interesting responses to proposals from the governor, and to information from the fiscal analyst for the Minnesota House of Representatives who was at a public meeting recently with several legislators. A letter from one reader suggests the meeting was slanted because there were suggestions to increase some programs rather than specific proposals to cut spending. Likewise, a letter from a Republican legislator accuses the governor of proposing tax increases on “the wealthiest 2 percent” which she says will hurt 92 percent of businesses in the state, and would therefore damage employment in Minnesota. But while the fiscal analyst confirms increases in state tax receipts over time, he also showed that taxes have declined over the same time as a percentage of the state’s economy. Many of us would have thought this tax decline should result in a stronger economy. But, while Minnesota has not seen unemployment as high as in many states, we are still hurt by a damaging recession, unlike when taxes were a higher per-
centage of the economy, the state’s total product of goods and services. I challenge the idea that reduced taxes always and inevitably help the economy. I agree with economists about our public schools. I suggest we might need increased spending on our schools to benefit our future economy. Rather than a knee-jerk mistrust of government spending, I encourage solid economic analysis of potential benefits from public spending. We hear too much about how it is bad, and too little about how it can really make a positive difference. PAUL HOFFINGER Eagan
Tax increases hurt economy, family budgets
revenue came in last year so most of the school shift was paid off. We need to give credit to our Republican legislators for paying off most of the school shift. According to Bill Marx, the chief fiscal analyst for the Minnesota House of Representatives, our state spent $35.2 billion over the last two years. Marx is nonpartisan and works for both political parties. This includes the $1.3 billion used to repay the entire accounting shift from the 2011 budget plus part of the previous accounting shift for the schools. I believe Dayton and the DFL legislature should keep spending at the same level as in the 2011 budget. There is no need to raise taxes when estimated revenue for this budget is $600 million higher than revenue from the last two years. Any tax reform should be designed to cut taxes and not to raise more money for government to spend. Now is the time to contact your legislators and the governor to tell them we do not want our taxes raised. We need to stop these tax increases which are going to hurt Minnesota’s economy and hurt our family budgets.
To the editor: The governor has been talking about a state budget shortfall over the next two years between estimated revenue of $35.8 billion and projected spending of $36.9 billion, according to Minnesota’s current tax rates. Gov. Mark Dayton’s budget plan is to significantly raise our taxes to cover the $1.1 billion difference. Minnesota’s economy really improved in the two years the Republi- NICK PARIS cans were in control of Burnsville the Legislature. Extra

Access points in the planned development at 1310 Cliff Road will need to be moved east to comply with Dakota County regulations. Because of these changes, a new traffic study will be done. The county plat commission last week approved the revised access plans for the single-family housing development called Dakota Path. The plat commission, which consists of county staff, suggested the change in the traffic plans. The developmentâ€™s access from Cliff Road will need to be moved 400 feet east of the existing access to Parkview to meet county guidelines. â€œThe spacing guidelines are meant to provide safe and efficient access, while still providing adequate mobility of traffic through that corridor,â€? Eagan City Engineer John Gorder said. The City Council was expected to vote Jan. 5 on developer Hunter Emersonâ€™s proposal to rezone the 80-acre property and build 177 homes south of Cliff Road between Pilot Knob Road and Lexington Avenue. But the councilâ€™s vote is

An Eagan man faces felony charges for threatening to kill a utility worker for having her radio too loud. Daniel Thomas Drobac, 32, was charged by the Dakota County Attorney on Jan. 22 with felony terroristic threats. According to the criminal complaint, Drobac threatened to kill a woman working on a utility box because her radio was loudly relating information about a previous nightâ€™s basketball game, which he had recorded and was watching on television. The woman called 911, and when officers arrived they found a kitchen knife in the snow about 10 feet from the womanâ€™s tent set up around the utility box. Officers allegedly noticed marks in the snow indicating the knife skidded across the top of the snow from the direction of Drobacâ€™s home. Drobac was arrested. During a police interview, Drobac said he was watching a Gophers basketball game that he recorded the previous evening. He allegedly said he became upset when he heard the womanâ€™s radio because she was listening to a station that was discussing the outcome of the game he was watching. Drobac admitted to yelling out his window but said he believed he just told her to turn the radio off and denied throwing a knife out his home. He allegedly admitted
to owning a knife set that matched the knife in the snow. Officers allegedly found a block of knifes in Drobacâ€™s home that matched the knife outside.
Drobac has no prior criminal history. Jessica Harper is at jessica. email@example.com or facebook.com/sunthisweek.

Burnsville seeks public comment on cableservices Franchise renewal process under way by John Gessner SUN THISWEEK
If you’re a cable subscriber in Burnsville, or someone who helps produce local programming, would you like to see high school sports and City Council meetings in high definition? Folks have a chance to weigh in on such topics as the city negotiates a new franchise agreement with cable giant Comcast. The city has begun a three-year review of the agreement, which Comcast wants to renew before it expires in January 2015. The city is using consultants to study Comcast’s compliance with technical and financial requirements of the agreement. Officials also want to hear from anyone who has
an interest in cable services and the local-content channels provided under the agreement. The city is holding a series of six focus groups Feb. 26, 27 and 28, each targeted to a specific community sector – from K-12 schools to businesses and civic groups. “We’re trying to get some community input,” said Marty Doll, Burnsville’s communications coordinator. “That’s really the looking-forward piece.” High-def local channels and specific local programming information for the on-screen cable guides are two ideas City Hall staffers have discussed, Doll said. The city is “very openminded to any ideas,” he said.
Under the franchise agreement, Comcast – the third company to hold the 15-year franchise approved in 2000 – provides six channels for public, education and government (PEG) programming. Subscribers pay a $1.89 PEG fee, which by law must be used for PEG programming and equipment. It raised about $300,000 in 2011. Among the six channels in Burnsville, one is for city government, two are for public use and three are for local school districts 191, 194 and 196, Doll said. Comcast also provides “dark fiber” to link government and educational facilities for video and data services. Once touted as a grassroots democratizing me-
Bill seeks to punish data privacy breaches Lakeville legislator among those backing bil lby T.W. Budig SUN THISWEEK
Rep. Sarah Anderson said she could meet someone in a coffee shop and not know he or she was the one who wrongfully obtained her personal information. “Unfortunately, I was one of the 5,000 people in the state of Minnesota,” said Anderson, R-Plymouth, of the improper access to Minnesota Driver and Vehicle Services records by a former Department of Natural Resourc-
es employee. Disgusted by repeated examples of public employees violating data privacy law, a group of lawmakers, including Rep. Mary Liz Holberg, RLakeville, a legislator with expertise in data privacy, is pursuing legislation to stop the abuse. “We’re really, really tired of it,” said Holberg, speaking at a Capitol press conference Jan. 23. Holberg and Sen. Scott Dibble, DFL-Minneapolis, have drafted legislation taking a number of steps
not only to punish public employees wrongfully accessing the state database but to spread “sunshine” and greater scrutiny on cases where it occurs. Under the legislation, a public employee who acquires or accesses private data in a manner not explicitly allowed by law could be found guilty of a gross misdemeanor if the action occurs repeatedly. In cases of accessing multiple data subjects, they could be found guilty if they do it once. “I think it will take a
dium, cable has been eclipsed to some extent by the Internet revolution. But local content remains important to people, Doll said, pointing to the enduring popularity of cable-televised Burnsville City Council meetings (which are also streamed live on the city’s website). “Believe me, if something happens and meetings don’t go out live, if we have a technical issue, we almost always hear about it,” Doll said. “There are people out there watching them.” Burnsville and Eagan held a joint cable franchise beginning in the 1980s, but the cities split in 2008 and now have separate franchises and separate community television operations.
The cities are collaborating on some parts of the technical and financial review, Doll said. According to Comcast, Burnsville has 13,949 cable subscribers, or 48.7 percent of homes that could receive cable. Here’s a schedule of focus-group meetings in Burnsville: • Local government departments, agencies and boards – Tuesday, Feb. 26, 9:30 to 11:30 a.m., City Hall council chambers. • Arts, culture, music and heritage organizations – Tuesday, Feb. 26, 2:30 to 4:30 p.m., City Hall council chambers. • Health and human services, seniors – Wednesday, Feb. 27, 9:30 to 11:30 a.m., Diamondhead Education Center, Classroom B.
• K-12 schools, teachers, staff, parents – Wednesday, Feb. 27, 4 to 6 p.m., Burnsville High School, Lecture Hall C-180. • Nonprofit, community and faith-based organizations – Thursday, Feb. 28, 1 to 3 p.m., Diamondhead Education Center, Classroom B-104. • Business, civic and neighborhood organizations – Thursday, Feb. 28, 6 to 8 p.m., City Hall council chambers. Participants are asked to RSVP by Feb. 22. Sign up online at www.burnsville.org/cablefranchise or call (952) 895-4402.
change of culture,” Holberg said. Beyond possible penalties, Holberg and Dibble’s legislation requires state agencies in which data practices violations occur to publish a report on the facts and findings of investigation. This must at least include a description of the data accessed or acquired, the number of individuals whose data was accessed or acquired, the name or names of responsible parties and the final disposition of any disciplinary action. In cases where no disciplinary action took place, the reasons must be given. Holberg believes the “good actors,” the government officials who honor and follow data privacy
law, support stronger actions against public-employee data-privacy abusers. They don’t want their agency sporting black eyes, Holberg said. Government agencies often want more access to information. But if they can’t protect the data they have, granting greater latitude becomes problematic, Holberg explained. “The time is right,” Holberg said, adding that she expects data privacy legislation to pass the Legislature this year. The public, when it learns more of the scope of data privacy abuse, will take concerns to lawmakers, Holberg believes. “This is not the end of it,” she said. As for the DNR incident, it’s her understanding that the case was uncovered by an investigation looking into a different matter, Holberg explained. Most of the 5,000 residents whose data was wrongfully accessed were women, she said. “Maybe there were some (men),” Holberg said.
According to media reports, the DNR is sending notification letters to the 5,000 people whose data has been compromised. The DVS information accessed included names, addresses, photos, and other information. Local government officials may have had their awareness of the data privacy abuse problem heightened, Holberg explained, by the big money settlements individuals have won in recent cases. It’s just frustrating that cases of public employees wrongly accessing private data continue to occur, Holberg said. Holberg expressed puzzlement over the laggardness of the government in protecting its own data. This legislation is not an attempt to limit the rightful access of information by law enforcement officials, she said. Undercover law enforcement officials are given great protections in state data privacy law.

Lexington Pet Clinic in Eagan plans to move in April from 4250 Lexington Ave. S. to the former Video Update building at 1095 Diffley Road. The 2,400 square-foot building will enable the clinic to grow and expand its services. STORE, from 1A er, who specializes in exotic animals, treats an array of pets including ferrets, guinea pigs, pet chickens and even fish. When she’s not at the Eagan clinic, Kizer cares MICHELLE, from 1A were killed Jan. 21 in their Boulder City, Nev., home at the hands of Hans Walters, Michelle’s husband and Max’s father. According to the police account of the incident, Hans Walters, a Las Vegas police lieutenant, fatally shot his 46-year-old wife and their child and set fire to the home before turning the gun on himself. Many questions remain as to what triggered the grisly incident and the truth may never be known, Watkins Hirsch said. In the aftermath of the deaths, Watkins Hirsch took exception to news accounts merely referring to her sister as a “victim” in the incident, because her sister was so much more to everyone who knew her. Growing up in Apple Valley, Watkins Hirsch recalled, Michelle had her sights set on a career in law enforcement at an early age. While attending
for creatures at the Sea Life Aquarium (formerly known as Underwater World) at the Mall of America. The Eagan City Council approved a planned development amendment for the site on Feb. 5,
which will enable to clinic to move forward with its plans.
Apple Valley High School, Michelle did ride-alongs with Apple Valley patrol officers to get an inside look at life on the beat. The ride-alongs were arranged by her father, Mike Watkins, an Apple Valley firefighter who was friends with many on the city’s police force. After high school – Michelle graduated from AVHS in 1984 – she served a stint in the Army before enrolling in the police academy in Las Vegas. After signing on with Las Vegas police, she appeared multiple times on the TV show “Cops” – even making an appearance on the “Cops: Too Hot for TV” special – but some of her proudest moments came as a community volunteer, Watkins Hirsch said. Michelle spent more than 10 years volunteering with child cancer groups, helping to run two Las Vegas summer camps for child cancer patients. As
a counselor at one camp, she was known as “Wonder Woman,” donning the attire of the female superhero for the amusement of campers. She gave up police work to focus on family life following the birth of Max. Born in February 2007, Max would have celebrated his sixth birthday on Saturday, Feb. 9. Following the memorial service Feb. 1, Michelle and Max were buried at Resurrection Cemetery in Mendota Heights. The mother and son were interned near the burial plots of Michelle’s parents, Mike and Elizabeth. “The one positive thing from all of this is they were buried next to my mom and dad,” Watkins Hirsch said.
The Minnesota Valley Transit Authority board of directors elected officers for 2013 at its organizational meeting on Jan. 30. Gary Hansen, Eagan City Council member, was re-elected chair. Hansen also serves as chair of the Suburban Transit Authority, a group of suburban transit providers including MVTA, SouthWest Transit, Plymouth Metrolink, Maple Grove Transit and Prior Lake Laker Lines/ Shakopee Transit (operat-
ing jointly as the BlueXpress). Clint Hooppaw, Apple Valley City Council member, was elected vice chair; Jane Victorey, Savage City Council member, was reelected secretary/treasurer. Other members of the board include Dakota County Commissioner Liz Workman, Burnsville City Council Member Dan Kealey, Rosemount Mayor William Droste, and Scott County Commissioner Jon Ulrich. The MVTA board also
adopted its meeting calendar for 2013. Meetings will take place at 4:30 p.m. on the fourth Wednesday of each month at the Burnsville Bus Garage, 11550 Rupp Drive, Burnsville, with the following exceptions: fifth Wednesday, Jan. 30; fifth Wednesday, July 31; and fifth Wednesday, Oct. 30.

Lakeville South opens district’s first in-school food shelf by Laura Adelmann
BRING FUN TO YOUR WORKOUT!
Lakeville South High School Administrator DeAnn Haugland always stashed snacks at her desk for students she knew were not getting enough food at home. “For the last eight years, she bought food like granola bars … and paid for it out of her own pocket,” said Lakeville South Athletic Director Neil Strader. Haugland’s days of helping fill that need on her own are over thanks to the efforts of Lakeville South High School junior Margaret Gadek, whose proposal for an unprecedented in-school food shelf became a reality at Lakeville South in December. “I knew there was a need,” Gadek said, who recruited her friend Maggie Murphy, also a junior, to help with the project. “I saw how passionate she was about it,” Murphy said. Strader helped the students coordinate the school’s first food drive in November that over two weeks brought in about 1,500 food items. “Mr. (Bob) Curry’s classes brought in over 900 food items,” Gadek said. “And we got hundreds of items from other classrooms.”

Lakeville South High School Activities Director Neil Strader, school counselor Lisa Hansen and juniors Maggie Murphy and Margaret Gadek stand in front of the district’s first in-school food shelf. Located inside Lakeville South High School, the food shelf is open to any needy family with children in District 194. The school’s food shelf opened in December, and over 400 items have been given to students and their families, said Lakeville South school counselor Lisa Hansen, who has volunteered to link needy students to the resource. Gadek said she became aware of the local need for food while volunteering for local food shelves and 360 Communities. “Sometimes, families just need food for a few weeks to tide them over,” she said. Some grocery store gift
cards were also donated for families to purchase milk, meat and produce. There are no eligibility requirements and any needy family with a child in the district can use the food shelf, locked in a private area inside Lakeville South High School. Strader said he is encouraging Lakeville South student athletes to get involved, because the project embodies the service-above-self values he promotes. “I want this to be a built-in part of our school
and culture, to help others,” Strader said. Students can access the food shelf weekdays by contacting Hansen at (952) 232-3333 or email@example.com. The Food Pantry is also open by appointment for parents from 6:30 and 7:15 a.m. or between 3 and 3:30 p.m.

Farmington youth egg council toward chickens by Jennifer Chick SUN THISWEEK
A small group of determined youth have moved Farmington one step closer to having chickens within its city limits. Teens Annabelle and Stefan Randow, Mya Tsukino, and Lerew Kaas presented their case to the council while supporters filled the meeting room seats, waving signs and wearing T-shirts to support their cause. Following their thoughtful and detailed arguments, the Farmington City Council voted unanimously to send the item back to the Planning Commission for discussion. Annabelle Randow dispelled common myths about noisy, smelly chickens that attract pests and predators. She said chickens love to eat pests of all kinds and dogs and cats usually leave chickens alone. “Raising chickens is a great way to teach kids to be responsible,” she said. “It also teaches them where food, like eggs, comes from. Changing the world, one chicken at a time.” Tsukino talked about the poor conditions when chickens are usually raised on commercial operations. Instead, the group is advocating residents only be allowed to keep one to six chickens and no roosters
in their backyards. “I believe backyard chickens will move Farmington forward,” she said. Stefan Randow listed many other nearby communities which are already allowing chickens: Anoka, Bloomington, Burnsville, Duluth, Eagan, Fridley, Maplewood, Minneapolis, New Brighton, New Hope, Northfield, Oakdale, Ramsey, Rosemount, Roseville, St. Paul, Shoreview and Stillwater. “We are surrounded by towns who allow chickens,” he said. “It would give many people and kids the ability to fully grasp the real meaning of respect and responsibility. Chickens will teach kids a life of sustainability. To live a sustainable lifestyle, you must produce much of what you consume yourself.” Kaas is a 4-H member who would like to raise chickens to show at the county fair. “Backyard chickens have a bad reputation to some people and this is unfair,” he said. “People think that having chickens next door to them will bring the value of their homes down.” Instead, urban chicken owners often treat their chickens like family pets, building them compact and creative chicken coops. He said there have been no complaints in towns that have already al-

lowed backyard chickens. “They are better looking than your neighbor’s dog house, wouldn’t you say?” he asked the council as he showed chicken coop examples. “And if I can come over and pet your dogs, you can come over and pet my chickens.” “We are not giving up until Farmington can at least give this a try,” he concluded. Council Member Douglas Bonar supports the idea. He was on the Planning Commission two years ago when it unanimously voted to send the issue to the council for approval. At that time, the council did not approve the idea. Council Member Jason Bartholomay also would like to see the Planning Commission and council reconsider the idea. He said there are families in Farmington who already have chickens in their backyards, and he would have never known if someone had not told him. Council Member Terry Donnelly voted no on the issue last time, but he is considering a change in his vote. He appreciated the group’s presentation and wants to see the Planning Commission discuss the idea again. Council Member Christy Jo Fogarty found it interesting there have been no complaints in nearby cities, but for the idea to

get her full support, she said the rules might have to be more restrictive than what the youth are originally proposing. Mayor Todd Larson would also like to see more restrictions to begin with, such as a one-year trial and that chickens only be allowed in R1 zones first, lots larger than 10,000 square feet. In other business, the council revised its business development grant programming to allow funds to also be available for new businesses moving into the city. The council also approved a one-time transfer of $320,000 from the general fund to the ice arena fund to eliminate a negative balance. With changes in operation and expenses, Finance Director Robin Hanson feels the ice arena fund has the opportunity to break even after the deficit has been cleared up.

Sports Wildcats win several medals at section Nordic meet Boys team wins section for third-straight season; Hedblom wins girls race by Andy Rogers SUN THISWEEK
The Eagan Nordic ski teams had plenty to be happy about on Tuesday at Valleywood Golf Course in Apple Valley. The Eagan boys team won the Section 1 Nordic title with almost a perfect score, while Sonja Hedblom won the girls race about an hour later. The boys team, along with Hedblom and teammate Roxy Holt, who finished fifth, will compete at the state Nordic meet on Thursday at Giants Ridge in Biwabik. In the section boys race, Nick Acton won the section pursuit title beating teammate Josh Podpeskar, who was second by more than 40 seconds. “I went all out,” Nick Acton said. “Having this fresh powder has been great. I was pretty tired after that first race, but this is the big one. I didn’t want to hold anything back.” Jacob Edmond wasn’t far behind, sliding in at fourth with Ryan Larson on his tail at fifth.
Teammates Patrick Acton (17th), Brady Mavitz (18th) and Chris Acton (25th) followed a few minutes later. Last year Eagan finished seventh at state and in 2011 the boys were fifth. Nick Acton said the team is hoping for a topfour finish at state next week and individually he’s aiming for a top five. He put in extra work during the offseason lifting weights and running. “I did a lot of roller skiing and really watch what I eat,” Nick Acton said. “This is the big one (as a senior).

Burnsville’s Vivian Hett will ski at the state high school Nordic meet for the fifth year in a row. Her team’s on a bit of a streak, too. Led by Hett, who won the individual pursuit championship by more than two minutes, the Blaze won the Section 3 team title for the second year in a row. Burnsville was 15 points ahead of runner-up St. Paul Highland Park in the section meet Tuesday at Theodore Wirth Park. The Blaze will try to improve on last year’s sixthplace finish when it skis at the state meet Feb. 14 at Giants Ridge near Biwabik. Seventy-five girls competed in the girls section race, and all seven of Burnsville’s skiers finished in the top 16. Hett had a combined time of 34 minutes, 45 seconds in the pursuit race, which consists of a 5-kilometer classic leg and a 5K freestyle leg. She had the fastest time on each of the two legs. Highland Park skiers placed second and third, with Burnsville’s Jordan Horner coming in fourth at 38:13. The Blaze salted away the team championship when Jane Koch (40:14), Kjerstin Narvesen (41:20) and Krista Bain (41:25) finished seventh through ninth.

Lightning girls come close Entering the Section 1 meet, the girls race was wide open between Lakeville North, Eastview and Winona/Cotter.

DANCE, from 1A May 21. There will be a $10 cover charge. Patrick and his band will perform from 7 to 10 p.m. Ballroom dance lessons will be available from 6-7 p.m. for a fee. With the generous size of the Skateville floor, Patrick hopes to bring in up to 10 instructors, giving dancers an à la carte of lessons — from beginner to advanced and waltz to foxtrot. If the ballroom series is successful, Patrick and Adams plan to resume it in September. Either way, they’ll take the summer off because Skateville isn’t air-conditioned. “There’s really no place like (Skateville) in the whole Twin Cities, and nobody’s really doing something like this,” Patrick said. “I thought, ‘It’s so BAR, from 1A attract a more mixed-age crowd than Primetime pulled in and repair the spotty reputation some people still have of the place. “So far, we’ve had very good luck with everybody,” said co-owner Chad True, 42, of Burnsville. “The crowds we’re looking for are those we set out to get. We just need more of them.” They’ve added country bands to the mix and recently opened for lunch in an effort to broaden High Five’s appeal. True’s partners – childhood friends who graduated together from Apple Valley High School – are CHOIR, from 1A

testing his vocal chops in public nine years ago at the Nye’s Polonaise Room piano bar in Minneapolis. He’s recorded three CDs, two with the 10-piece Blue Eyes Band he formed in 2009. Patrick and the band performed a Valentine’s Day show last year at the Burnsville Performing Arts Center. “We do Sinatra, Dean Martin, Bobby Darin, Nat King Cole, Tony Bennett. And a lot of Michael Buble,” the modern-day Canadian singer, Patrick said. “But we’re now starting to do our own originals, and they’re being received quite well.” Between his band gigs — including a residency at the Eagles Club in south Minneapolis the first Friday of the month — and solo shows at senior living facilities, Patrick said he performs two or three
times a week. If the ballroom series is successful, Patrick hopes to bring in other bands. The Twin Cities has a healthy big band scene, “and I have my eye on a couple of them.” He also hopes to bring in high school jazz bands to take the stage when his Blue Eyes Band takes a break. The Hill-Marry jazz band is scheduled for April 16, courtesy of a Blue Eyes Band member who teaches at the Maplewood school. More information on the Feb. 19 debut and Patrick’s other upcoming shows is at timpatrickmusic.com.
Rob Trewick of Farmington, Patrick Mooney of Apple Valley and Brett Anderson of Prior Lake. Before buying the bar, they’d meet there and sometimes talk about how they’d run the place if they were in charge. “Me and the other three owners – I’m 50 percent and the other three make up the other 50 percent – we were regulars here for happy hour. ... We never saw the kind of shenanigans going on at night. We loved the place,” True said. To manage High Five the partners hired 26-year-old Dave Sperling of Burnsville, who had worked at Primetime since it opened in October 2005 and managed it for the last
year and a half. Sperling said he had hoped to make changes at Primetime and broaden its clientele, but its “stigma” and reputation as a hardrock bar made that impossible. “He knows this business,” True said, “and he has contacts with the right groups and promoters. He was the first thing we solidified when we got the OK, that he would manage.” The establishment – previously owned by Rich Povlitzki, who had a falling-out with the building’s management, True said – is larger than the stripmall storefront might suggest. Covering nearly 15,000
square feet, it has a top capacity of 900 for concerts, True said. “Best sound and lights south of the river, definitely,” True said. The club sold out for a Jan. 19 appearance by Seattle hard rockers Candlebox. It drew about 700 for a touring Garth Brooks tribute band and about 700 to a mixed martial arts fight, Sperling said. True said High Five tries to book one country band and one rock band per weekend. Primetime’s all-rock, all-the-time persona – and some of its extreme drink specials – helped cement its reputation, according to True and Sperling. “I did witness a couple
of those evenings,” said True, who has worked in retail management, property management and information technology, and is now a part-time leasing agent and caretaker at the Provence Apartments in Burnsville, where he lives with his wife and their two children. “We didn’t want that kind of thing. I wanted a place where a 35-yearold couple wouldn’t be afraid to come out and enjoy a good country show.” The new owners have made improvements, including enlarging the dance floor, recarpeting, brightening up the lighting and raising a section of the floor that sports eight pool tables, restaurant seating and arcade games.
“We’ve got an original Frogger over there and a Ms. Pac-Man,” Sperling said. “It’s a retro arcade.” True readily admits that police were at Primetime “more than they should have been” and that the old reputation is hard to shake. “That establishment died,” Sperling said. “That era is over. And this is the beginning of something completely new and different.”
students across the district in fifth through seventh grade. In its first year, the program consists of 80 students. They recently performed excerpts from “Newsies the Musical” on Feb. 3 at Eastview High School; the Broadway musical is based on the New York City newsboys strike in 1899. Jim Cox said he hopes
the program will encourage students to love music and be a part of the creative process in a noncompetitive way. “I think competitions are great but it’s equally profound when those competitors can work together for a common goal,” he said. Leading up to the concert last weekend, students
trained for two hours at a time the three previous Sundays. The performance at Eastview concluded the program for the year. At each practice they learn choreography, vocals and work with 10 high school students who serve as mentors. Black Hawk sixthgraders Nellie Benton and Kirsten Akey said they en-
joy learning from the older students. Benton said she likes that the show choir provides an opportunity to meet students from other schools who are within her age group. Both girls have been involved in area dance and choir programs and said their love for music pushed them to join the show choir.

Hi, I’m Kiki! I sure hope the rest of my life goes better than it has been lately. I am a sweet, loveable and pretty girl who has had it pretty tough. I am 12 years old and had a home for a long time. Then my family let me out of the house and I got lost. I was out on my own with no claws for months until I found my way back home, only to ﬁnd I had been replaced by a younger cat! We did not get along and my family decided to keep the youngster and took me to the clinic to be put to sleep. Thank goodness the folks at the clinic knew me and what a sweet girl I was and thought I deserved better so they contacted Last Hope to try to ﬁnd me a good home. I’m a calm, quiet girl and a real people cat. I love to snuggle up next to you and will jump into your lap for pets when I get to know you a little. I am a delight to be around, and really want someone to love who will love me back. I am healthy, vaccinated, spayed, microchipped and declawed. I have many good years ahead of me. Would you let me share them with you? For more information contact foster mom Judy at 952-492-2331 or weidtje@gmail. com. Adoption fee $50. All our cats and dogs are spayed/neutered unless too young. See all of them at www.last-hope.org or come to the Apple Valley adoption day from 11-3 this Saturday at Petco to see all our cats and dogs looking for homes.

Thisweekend ‘Hollywood’ comes to Burnsville Chameleon Theatre’s new comedy opens Feb. 15 Hollywood history is getting condensed in a major way in Chameleon Theatre Circle’s latest production, “Completely Hollywood (abridged).” The show, which opens next Friday (Feb. 15) at the Burnsville Performing Arts Center, will see four actors from the local theater group delivering a rapid-fire comedic blitz through 187 films and 100 years of Tinseltown history. “Completely Hol-
lywood” is directed by Phil Gonzales – who also served as director of Chameleon’s popular “Reefer Madness” musical in November 2009 – and the four-actor cast features Holly Brimhall, Megan Farve, Gina Hamilton and Marlo Miller. The run of the show Feb. 15-24 includes one performance with audio description for visually impaired theatergoers (Feb. 17) and one with ASL interpretation (Feb.
22). A discussion with the cast and crew will follow the Feb. 22 performance. Tickets are $20 for adults, $17 for students and seniors, and are available in person at the arts center’s box office and through Ticketmaster at 800-982-2787 or Ticketmaster.com.
