Burnsville grad presumed dead after river mishap by John Gessner SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Lauren Li, a 2011 Burnsville High School graduate who co-captained the school’s Blazettes dance team, is presumed dead after falling into the icy Chicago River shortly after midnight on Monday, Jan. 13. Police suspended their search for the 21-year-old Burnsville woman on Tuesday, the Chicago Tribune reported. Li was traveling to New Jersey with friends from the University of Minnesota when they stopped in Chicago, said her friend and former Blazettes co-captain, Rachel Hassler. Li’s friend Ken Hoang, 26, was reportedly taking photos from the riverwalk when his phone dropped onto the ice. He

slipped and fell into the water trying to retrieve the phone. Li fell into the river while trying to help Hoang. Another friend, Quoc-Viet Phan Hoang, also fell in but survived, the Tribune reported. Ken Hoang died shortly after professional rescuers pulled his body from the water, according to the Tribune. “It’s crazy to me that she passed because of her intense bravery,� Hassler said in an interview. “It’s nothing out of the ordinary for her. She always wanted to help others. It’s just so sad. So many people will miss her. She made everyone feel like they were best friends with her.� An excellent student in high school, Li was pursuing a degree in pharmacology at the university, Hassler said. Dance and school were “a huge part of her life.� Lauren Li was one of four co-captains of the Burnsville She was a senior honor roll student in High School Blazettes in 2010-11.

The trip between Apple Valley and the Mall of America on the Cedar Avenue Red Line is expected to become a little faster and more direct by 2015. On Jan. 7, the Regional Railroad Authority approved a recommendation to build a new stop in the center median of Cedar Avenue in Eagan. From the stop, riders will be able to take a 300-foot enclosed climatecontrolled walkway over Highway 77 that will connect to the existing Cedar Grove transit station. Commuters have been frustrated by the slow Ea-

gan stop since its opening last year. Presently buses must exit Highway 77 onto local streets to reach the station — located at 4035 Nicols Road — and then backtrack to the highway. Officials initially planned to fix the stop in the second phase of the $112 million project, but riders prompted them to act sooner. After examining several options, county officials decided the $14.6 million stop would provide the greatest time savings at the lowest cost, said Kristine Elwood, transit engineer for Dakota County.

2014 will be an eventful year for Dakota County Commissioner Liz Workman of Burnsville. The newly elected County Board chair will serve as the board’s top officer at the same time work is substantially completed on a $40 million interchange project at Highway 13 and County Road 5. Pleased to finally see work on a project she pushed for years as a Burnsville City Council member, Workman is also candid about the traffic hassles it will create for a second straight construction season. “That was 10, 12 years in the making,� Workman said of the project, which will run Highway 13 beneath County Road 5, eliminating the signalized crossing and a major bottleneck on the heavily traveled state highway. “It’s really gratifying to see 5 and 13 where it is right now. Even though, if you drive through it, I’m sure you’re going to cuss your way through it. This year, 2014, I would avoid it, if at all possible. It’s going to be worse than it was last year.�

Other developments on tap for the county this year include board action on the Liz controverWorkman sial Lebanon Hills Regional Park master plan and some library renovations, Workman said. A former Burnsville Parks and Natural Resources commissioner, Workman was first elected to the City Council in 1996 and served through 2008, when she won election to the County Board. Workman was re-elected in 2012 to the District 5 board seat, which her predecessor, Mike Turner, held for two decades. “Obviously, the people of Burnsville like the job that Mike did,� said Workman, 58. She served as vicechair last year and let it be known she was interested in serving as the 2014 chair. The seven-member board unanimously elected Workman Jan. 7. She replaces outgoing Chair Kathleen Gaylord of South St. Paul. CommisSee WORKMAN, 8A

Playwrights keep it real BHS senior to debut one of her many works at Metcalf by John Gessner SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Katherine Carman must have greasepaint in her blood. She has designed theater sets, applied makeup to actors, costumed casts and dabbled in sound, lights and assistant directing.

ed Metcalf in eighth and ninth grade and has stuck around as a volunteer in the school’s drama program, isn’t the only playwright in the house.

Thomson Reuters to lay off 184 workers in Eagan Officials at Thomson Reuters Corp. have said the New York-based company will lay off 184 employees in March at its legal publishing business in Eagan. The cuts are a part of the financial data and media companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision announced in October to eliminate 3,000 jobs companywide, which accounts for 5 percent of Thomson Reuterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s global workforce, said Scott Augustin, spokesperson for the Ea-

gan operations. In October, Thomson Reuters declined to say how the Eagan campus would be affected, but officials did say the bulk of the cuts would be in the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s finance and risk business, which is based in London. Thomson Reuters also stated most of the notifications would occur in the fourth quarter of 2013. In December, the company announced that layoffs would include Eagan,

but declined to say how many jobs would be affected. Officials did say the cuts would be in management information systems. Thomson Reuters employs 7,000 workers in Eagan, which serves as the headquarters for its legal business. Augustin declined to say whether there will be additional layoffs or how far along the company is with its companywide layoffs. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Jessica Harper

Schmid new board chair in 191 by John Gessner SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Jim Schmid was elected the 2014 chair of the Burnsville-Eagan-Savage District 191 School Board Jan. 9. He was elected unanimously by the seven-member board at its annual organization meeting. Schmid, a Burnsville resident elected to the board in 2010, had been serving as vice chair. His board term expires at the end of this year. He replaces the 2013 chair, Sandy Sweep, whose leadership was praised by fellow Board Member Ron Hill.

Sweep â&#x20AC;&#x153;has acted as the face of our school districtâ&#x20AC;? during a year when the board hired a new superintendent, Joe Gothard, Hill said. The board elected Bob VandenBoom vice chair, DeeDee Currier clerk and Abigail Alt treasurer. Board members voted to set their monthly salaries at $500, which theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been since January 2008, with a traditional extra $50 monthly stipend for the chair because of added duties of the office.

Student performance committee

board voted to add a standing board committee called the Student Performance and Achievement Committee. Gothard recommended forming the committee, whose three chair-appointed members will work with Assistant Superintendent Cindy Amoroso and the districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Teaching and Learning Team on curriculum, instruction and testing issues. The committee will meet monthly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This really gets at the nuts and bolts of what weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all about,â&#x20AC;? Hill said.

A former Eagan insurance agent accused of filing and profiting from fake insurance policies pleaded guilty on Jan. 7 to theft by swindle. Dewitt Alonzo Davison, 32, received $32,088.78 in commission for numerous fake insurance applications he filed between Sept. 3, 2010, and

Oct. 17, 2010. Company officials became suspicious upon noticing Davison used the same bank account numbers to pay for the policies. In January 2011, the company contacted the Minnesota Department of Commerce, whose investigation revealed Davison used either fictitious

or relativesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; names on the fake applications. Davison told investigators he was â&#x20AC;&#x153;having money issuesâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;got in over his head.â&#x20AC;?

Board votes 5-1 to speed up Dodd upgrade Lakeville mayor, School Board chair set special meeting regarding road by Laura Adelmann SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

A month after a Lakeville North High School student died in a crash on Dodd Boulevard, Lakeville School Board members passed a resolution 5-1 on Jan. 14 requesting Dakota County and the city of Lakeville â&#x20AC;&#x153;place a high priorityâ&#x20AC;? on upgrading Dodd Boulevard from 185th Street to 194th Street. School Board Chair Roz Peterson said she and Mayor Matt Little will meet next week to discuss safety concerns about the road, which is one of two access points into the Lakeville North High School student parking lot. School Board Member Judy Keliher was the lone vote against the resolution, citing concerns that proper procedures were not followed by the School Board in bringing the issue forward. The resolution states the improvements on Dodd Boulevard near the Lakeville North High School should be prioritized to address the roadâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;ever increasing volume of traffic and longstanding serious traffic safety issues.â&#x20AC;? It was reported last week in this newspaper that Dakota County has planned but delayed upgrades to Dodd Boulevard for years while spending on road projects in less populated areas. A $9 million two-year upgrade to Dodd Boulevard in rural Eureka Township is slated to begin this spring. According to state and local police records, dozens of accidents have

occurred on Dodd Boulevard near Lakeville North in the last five years, and two Lakeville North students have died on the stretch since 2004. Lakeville North junior Alyssa Ettl, 16, died on the road on her way to school on Dec. 4 after the vehicle she was driving skidded on slush and was broadsided by oncoming traffic. Lakeville police Officer Rick Bussler was one of the officers who responded to Ettlâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s crash scene. He described working fatal crashes on the job as â&#x20AC;&#x153;heartbreaking,â&#x20AC;? and said many times he does not feel safe driving on that segment of Dodd Boulevard where Ettl died. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Looking at that roadway, it seems to kind of scream thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s some structural things not quite right with it,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got a steep grade. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s narrow and has no shoulders. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a tough road to maneuver on, and many times I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel comfortable driving on that roadway for work and personal time.â&#x20AC;? He said last winter he nearly lost control of his car while driving southbound on that stretch. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one mile,â&#x20AC;? Bussler said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All they need to do is somehow cut that hill down and widen it out.â&#x20AC;? The School Board resolution asks the county and city to improve the road segment sooner than 2018, as current plans now indicate. Because the stretch is a county road, Dakota County is lead in prioritizing road improvements, but works with cities to set priorities as they fund 45 percent of the work under a funding mechanism unique to Dakota County statewide. Improvements to the road segment originally appeared in plans in 2006, slated for construction in 2010 but have been delayed as development waned. Meanwhile, housing

development up the road from Lakeville North continues to be forwarded. The Lakeville Planning Commission on Jan. 9 unanimously recommended City Council approval of a preliminary plat for a 62 single-family home development just north of the high school. In the School Board resolution, it is noted development could exacerbate traffic problems on the segment of Dodd Boulevard near Lakeville North. The 34.5-acre development, dubbed Summerlyn North, is located on the south side of 190th Street near Dodd Boulevard, the intersection where Lakeville police reports state Ettlâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s accident occurred. More developments are also planned or occurring in the area, including the 155-lot Crescent Ridge housing development. Lakeville Planning Commission Member Karl Drotning cited concerns at the meeting that the city is planning development near roads that are not prepared for the increased traffic they bring. In an interview, Drotning said the city has reached the tipping point, and no more developments should go forward until there is some action to address that portion of Dodd Boulevard. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think there should be a commitment by the city on the front end to accelerate Dodd reconstruction by working with the county in whatever means necessary,â&#x20AC;? he said. Drotning also noted the â&#x20AC;&#x153;chicken and eggâ&#x20AC;? situation the city and county are in regarding road improvement decisions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need development to help pay for infrastructure, yet development drives infrastructure and the need for it,â&#x20AC;? Drotning said. Through development of a west side portion

of that section of Dodd Boulevard, the city has escrowed $184,000 for road improvements; the other side is not developed. Purchasing right of way is a big expense, City Administrator Steve Mielke has said. School Board Member Bob Erickson said he plans to propose the School Board consider a resolution that the district donate right of way it owns on the west side of Dodd Boulevard at 185th Street, where Century Middle School athletic fields are located. That action could cut substantial costs and allow the possibility of the road improvement work being moved up in county and city plans. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If the board determines it prudent to donate now, the only right of way the county doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have on the west side of Dodd is a single family home,â&#x20AC;? Erickson said.

Complications Increasing the traffic concerns regarding the Dodd Boulevard stretch are the road improvements planned for nearby 190th Street, a two-lane unpaved rural road slated for some upgrades related to the Summerlyn North development. The work will be privately funded through the development, according to the city. Lakeville city staff have proposed several options for improvements for the 190th Street and Holyoke Avenue intersection, east of the Dodd Boulevard segment of road near Lakeville North. Options included build-

ing a roundabout or a â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tâ&#x20AC;? intersection. Those proposals were slated for City Council approval in December, but delayed when City Council Member Colleen LaBeau, daughter of Summerlyn North developer Jim Stanton who owns threefourths of the property north of the Dodd Boulevard stretch, questioned the proposal. She said property owner Loren Schweich had indicated he did not want a roundabout, contrary to what city staff reported in their conversations with landowners. Staff just met with all property owners this week, so no council action has been taken on the issue. According to the School Board resolution, the portion of Dodd Boulevard near the high school has not been upgraded in design since it was paved in 1923. It also notes the road was built in 1853. The resolution details numerous safety issues with the curved, two-lane mile stretch of road, including the structural concerns and its 55 mph speed limit, the highest in the area. After Ettlâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s death, Dakota County added the section to an area it had requested the state to study for potential changes in the speed limit. Erickson said he wrote the resolution and showed it to Dakota County officials prior to the board considering it to get their feedback and said the county had no problem with it. He said he also discussed the resolution with

city officials before the School Board vote. Keliher said a third student died on that portion of Dodd Boulevard in 1999 and she has â&#x20AC;&#x153;the same concerns that everybody has about (the road),â&#x20AC;? but voted against the resolution because she thought the process was wrong. She said she would prefer the entire School Board discuss the issue with Dakota County and the city before voting on a resolution so it was â&#x20AC;&#x153;truly representative of our voice.â&#x20AC;? School Board Member Jim Skelly said the School Board respects the position of the city and county, and wants to work collaboratively with them, but felt the resolution provides advocacy and clarity from the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s perspective. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a defined community need in my mind that impacts student safety,â&#x20AC;? Skelly said. Peterson said the board did discuss the issue during the meeting and called the resolution â&#x20AC;&#x153;very benign.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;The reason why we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a special meeting about it is there were people here, obviously, who are concerned about school safety,â&#x20AC;? Peterson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to raise awareness. Dakota County has a lot of different priorities, and we have two of them: County Road 50 and Dodd. If you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say something, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to get just shoved underneath the rug. We want to be proactive.â&#x20AC;? Laura Adelmann is at laura.

Opinion Good news for public education in 2013 The year 2013 brought good news for education. The Minnesota Legislature approved additional funds for early childhood education and for all-day kindergarten. Eighty-six percent of local school levies were approved. Money borrowed from school districts during poor economic times have been repaid. The ECM Editorial Board, in a series of editorials last year, advocated these actions among others. ECM member newspapers keyed news coverage to major education issues: State funding, local funding and innovative classroom approaches. Editorials also urged our state’s educational leaders to: • Establish accountability to ensure the extra funds allocated to young children will be used effectively and fairly. • Urge federal and state governments to live up to their promises of special education funding. • Support and expand credit options for high school students, through dual credit opportunities and other programs. • Support and expand vocational opportunities to help close the gap between students’ skills and employment opportunities. • Maintain a singular focus on the need to ensure that all children are reading at grade level when they start fourth grade. We shared test scores that were hard to digest. In Minnesota, 63 percent of

ECM Editorial all fourth-graders were not proficient in reading. Of black children, 88 percent were not proficient. Experts agree that children need to be reading at or above grade level by the end of the third grade or face a distinct possibility of spending their remaining educational years at a disadvantage. We also shared this sobering fact: Minnesota tied for 29th in the country for graduation of students who entered high school in 2007 and should have graduated in the 2010-11 school year. Minnesota’s overall graduation rate was 77 percent. Some progress has been reported. The annual study of kindergarten readiness by the Minnesota Department of Education showed that Minnesota children entering kindergarten are better prepared. Seventy-three percent of children were determined to be ready for kindergarten, up from 60 percent in 2010. A child who is ready for kindergarten is considered on track to meet the achievement targets on the third-grade Minnesota Comprehensive Assessments, the MDE says. The 2013 Adequate Yearly Progress report says our graduation rate remained about 77 percent overall. However, that same report says 72 percent of Minnesota children are scoring “proficient” in

math; 68 percent are proficient in reading — definite improvement. The National Assessment of Educational Progress showed some narrowing of the achievement gap in its 2013 report. By putting extra funds into education for young children, the intent is these dismal achievement numbers will improve. Parents, educators and taxpayers need to watch those dollars — are they being spent in ways that will foster educational progress from preschool through Grade 3? We need to learn from schools that are succeeding. reports, for example, that English language learners and black students at Glacier Hills Elementary School in District 196 placed No. 5 and No. 6 in the state, respectively, on proficiency tests. Ten schools in Burnsville-EaganSavage District 191 made one-year gains in closing the achievement gap between white and minority students, according to state data. Nine of the district’s 15 schools increased their ratings on Minnesota’s broad measurement of school performance, called the Multiple Measurements Rating. Students at Sheridan Elementary School in Richfield gained 17 percentage points over the past year in overall proficiency. Students of color at Champlin Park High School, Apple Valley High School and Coon Rapids High School are in the state’s top 10 for overall proficiency. We need to learn what these

schools are doing right. Other major topics will arise in 2014 and beyond. Major overhauls of education financing will be discussed in the Legislature. Teacher accountability is another huge topic. How do we maintain a quality educational system and how do we keep teachers accountable? These issues will also be part of the next round of teacher contract negotiations, a process that could be very contentious. This editorial concludes our year-long commitment to raising and analyzing education issues. We are pleased with the accomplishments of the past year, but we urge diligence and emphasis continue to foster basic skills among the young, to offer specialized help to all students as needed and to expand alternative choices for high school and post-secondary students. We will continue to comment on education issues important to our communities. Our state has many challenges ahead, including a changing ethnic demographic and an aging population. Our economy is showing growth but still has issues. Our future will be brighter with a welleducated and proficient base of young people entering the workforce.

Lebanon Hills development plan – a stakeholder’s view by James E. Jenkins SPECIAL TO SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

What makes a great park? I guess this question depends on who you ask. In 2001 that question was asked and was answered in a new Lebanon Hills Regional Park Master Plan created by many hours of input by a stakeholders task force consisting of 13 park users and 13 representatives from affected surrounding municipalities. This plan was adopted by the Dakota County commissioners in 2001. The overarching vision of this plan was to create a balance between ecological preservation/ rehabilitation, including water management, development to support the natural environment and new land acquisition. The vision also included primary emphasis on the fact that this park is unique and is not planned to provide all activities for all citizens. It is to be preserved

Guest Columnist as a natural experience and should be maintained in a natural condition with only the necessary facilities to support this natural environment. When the commissioners adopted the 2001 plan, they were solidly in favor of this vision. They must know that their current plan is not consistent with this vision. The vision, intent and details of the 2001 Master Plan have clearly been violated and the new development plan is rapidly moving in an entirely different direction. It is now being planned to be a park that is all things to all people. The so called “public input” process has reinforced the vision of the 2001 plan. The vast majority of the public input comments have been dramatically in favor of maintaining & rehabilitating the natural environment and are against the hard

surface trail / hubs coming to the park and the hard surface trail penetrating through the center of the park. Yet the new development plan ignores that input. Most people do not realize the impact of the cut and fill, damage to the vegetation, additional water runoff and erosion, and the ongoing maintenance cost that these new trails will cause The Dakota County Parks Department and commissioners claim that this new direction is consistent with the 2001 plan. How can that be? How can they think that the stakeholders task force would have developed a plan that allowed this much latitude for hard development? What is their motivation? It seems to me it would have been a much more honest approach, if the commissioners would simply have said: “Look, we have changed our minds and our vision for the park. We think it should be a great park, by a revised definition and not a unique park. It should

be for everyone and all activities.” Would most of the stakeholders agree? No, but at least it would be a straightforward position by the county and we could continue trying to move the emphasis back to the natural vision and intent of the majority of the park users. I hope that the county commissioners will rethink their position and honor the intent of the 2001 Master Plan. Too many parks nationally have already been ruined by over development, destroying the very reason users loved them. As a county we have the opportunity to be unique and preserve this 2000-acre gem in our community to be enjoyed for future generations. I hope we take advantage of this opportunity, make a bold decision and do what’s right. James E. Jenkins, of Apple Valley, was a member of the 2001 Lebanon Hills Regional Park Stakeholders Task Force. Columns reflect the opinion of the author.

To the editor: It’s no surprise that Mike Obermueller leads the race for representing the 2nd Congressional District of Minnesota (Public Policy Polling, Oct. 21-22, 2013). The recent poll showed him running ahead of the incumbent, and with good reason. Obermueller has his eye on what we need in Minnesota and our country. He has the savvy to support the education of all young people, so they can perform well in life. His leadership in funding early education can save our country billions in remedial services in the future. Mike also extends the hand of cooperation across the aisle. He has the old fashioned idea that people should not be blocked from working to-

gether just because they come from different parties. He seems to come from the belief that this kind of collaboration can actually be a source of progress for people. Unlike some incumbents, he also seems to believe saving tax money need not favor one tax bracket over another. Large numbers of people in the 2nd District have begun to see the value of supporting key projects like education and family stability, and Mike has supported those key projects solidly and reliably. He advocates cutting government waste in subsidies for those who are already rich, and keeping more of our hard-earned dollars at home. Mike Obermueller is recognized as a dependable, forward-thinking citizen, just the kind we need to represent us in Congress. PAUL HOFFINGER Eagan

LETTERS, from 4A on land homesteaded by the Diffleys who immigrated here from Ireland in the 1850s. My father, Tom Sterns, served on the park board that set aside Lebanon Hills as wild park land for future generations. My grandfather (James Diffley) and mother (Rosemary Sterns, who still resides in Eagan) and their neighbors grew up swimming in the â&#x20AC;&#x153;swimming holes,â&#x20AC;? hiking, snowmobiling, fishing and ice fishing and generally using this land as their unofficial â&#x20AC;&#x153;parks and recreation areaâ&#x20AC;? growing up. It is a gift that I can bring my children to experience a taste of â&#x20AC;&#x153;old Eagan.â&#x20AC;? I hope one day my grandchildren will be able to have wild, natureimmersion experiences on this gorgeous, unadulterated land. As a marketing professional with particular experience in visitor/tourism related marketing, I have often been surprised that Lebanon Hills is not marketed more as a premier winter sports and wilderness destination to folks in the surrounding areas. Perhaps more investment in unique visitor marketing is a better strategy than paving a trail through it if increased use is the goal. When my friends and I come to Eagan two to three times per week during the winter from St. Paul to ski we almost always eat nearby in Eagan restaurants, buy gas, etc. thereby bringing money into the local economy. Thank you County Commissioners for preserving this true Dakota County treasure for future generations. Many ideas in the current proposed plan are worthy but running a paved path through the middle of the woods and impacting the grading, foliage, and trail crossings seems like a poor decision. Once this is done it cannot be undone. Regarding accessibility, please remember that there is almost zero accessibility for preserved, wild places now â&#x20AC;Ś this (along with rare jewels like the Grand Canyon and the Boundary Waters) is one, beautiful exception. Please reconsider these plans and find alternative routes from the campgrounds to the beach area. KATIE STERNS St. Paul, former Eagan resident

Support for 360 needed more than ever To the editor: This past Christmas 1,100 families were adopted through the Armful of Love program of 360 Communities. Thanks to everyone who stepped forward to provide this needed support and helped to make the Christmas of these families more joyful. Apple Valley Rotary raised $4,900 from members to help 10 families with 40 children. The need, however, has not gone away and the winter months are the most difficult time for these families. They need help paying for rent, utilities, car repair and financial assistance in addition to a shortage of food. Your support is needed more than ever. Rotary of Apple Valley with 48 members requests that their members bring in food or monetary donations on the first Wednesday of each month when they meet. The members under the leadership of David Kingsbury recognize the need for their support. David has indicated the club will be stepping up their efforts. During the winter months expenses rise with increased heating costs. More people are seen to be out of work at this time of year. Many who are accessing food shelves are people who worked for the same company for over 10 years and have now lost their jobs. 360 Communities in Burnsville is trying to help these families with

their basic needs. By supporting 360 Communities we change lives and help to strengthen communities. The need is great and I am confident that everyone will find a way during the next few months to support 360 Communities. The address is 501 E. Highway 13, Suite 102, Burnsville, MN 55337; phone 952985-5300; and website You can make a difference. Remember that a great need can happen to any of us. 360 Communities is there for all of us.

Thanks for helping out To the editor: My name is Charlie Trombley and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a sophomore in Boy Scout Troop 446 in Eagan. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m currently working on the Citizenship in the Community Merit Badge and needed to interview someone from the Public Works Department about snow plowing and road conditions. Mr. Russ Matthys answered my email and gave very detailed responses to my questions regarding snow removal. I know that with the snow and ice this is a very busy time of year for them and I really appreciate him taking the time out of his schedule to personally respond to my email. CHARLIE TROMBLEY Eagan

Pseudo science denies climate change To the editor: In Kevin McCarneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jan. 10 letter he spread pseudo science, the kind not spread by scientists. This data that he says that â&#x20AC;&#x153;is inâ&#x20AC;? is spread through disinformation campaigns funded by the Koch Bothers and their American Legislative Exchange Council-based groups that hide behind Americantitled entities to promote perceived patriotism. I had to laugh when he described the green money going to scientists and the elites. Anyone paying attention might see the exact opposite. Snow and cold weather can be part of climate change. Learn the science. Please take with a grain of salt and little else the dismissive stance toward science that Mr. McCarney touts. There are many great resources to choose from, but first I would listen to the respected scientists, 97 percent of whom believe that our growing climate crisis is something we the people have helped create and we the people can and must do something about. For the health of your children and theirs and your community, please act to create a better world for all of us. DEBORAH NELSON Lakeville

Listen, react to public input To the editor: County Commissioner Tom Egan said in his Dec. 26 opinion piece he welcomes input regarding the Lebanon Hills Regional Park trail plan, but is he paying attention to that input presented thus far? Citizens who attended the Dec. 16 open house did not come with â&#x20AC;&#x153;their own predispositionâ&#x20AC;? as Mr. Egan implies. Rather, they were residents and constituents who are educated about the plan to build a paved trail through the middle of the park. They chose to attend the event, ask questions and provide input. Mr. Egan simply does not like the tough questions that are being raised, because it gets in the way of the development of their plan. Mr. Egan is right, there have been a lot of negative comments. An overwhelming majority of those comments have op-

posed this development and were received well before the meeting on Dec. 16. The common theme of the comments, is the county should place an emphasis on restoration and preservation of this natural space. This was the conclusion in the 2001 plan. Unfortunately this ecological stewardship has not happened and monies for it, were shifted to other priorities. Our elected officials seem intent on pursuing a destructive development policy in Lebanon Hills without support to do so from their constituents. At present, Dakota County views the heartfelt opinions of its residents as an obstacle to their illconceived plans. There is a lot at stake here. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s get it right Dakota County. Please focus on the comments and react appropriately to them instead of your own agendas.

To the editor: Our planetâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s climate is changing. The decisions we make today will have a tremendous impact on the future of our children. Scientists are now as sure that we are largely responsible for our rapidly changing climate as they are that cigarettes cause cancer. We can ignore the peerreviewed science and listen to the deniers who spread the same false claims that have been discredited time and time again or we stand up and demand change. It may seem easier, and more secure to keep the status quo, but it is a false security. To do nothing dooms our children to an increase in the intensity and frequency of extreme weather events, floods, droughts, famine, poor air and water quality, ecosystem shifts and mass extinctions. The good news is there are solutions that can prevent the worst-case climate scenarios. We can transition to clean, sustainable, renewable energy resources and improve the efficiency of our homes, transportation systems and industry. The immediate health benefits of reducing our reliance on fossil fuels would save us billions! A 2009 National Academy of Sciences study quotes $120 billion a year in damages from burning fossil fuels and this was largely due to increased health care costs. There are many groups working on solutions. One quickly growing, nonprofit, grassroots advocacy organization focused on national policies to address climate change is the Citizens Climate Lobby. The Citizens Climate Lobby will hold its first Regional Conference entitled Climate Change: Local Impacts, National Action on Jan. 24-26 at Macalester College. I sincerely hope local residents will join us. VEDA KANITZ Lakeville

Carman also designed the set for â&#x20AC;&#x153;Five Women in the Same Dress,â&#x20AC;? one of three one-acts Burnsville High is presenting this year, but most of her theater experience has been at Metcalf. She said she designed most of the programâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s theater sets over the last five years, which included her time as a student

there. Even after leaving ninth grade, she kept showing up and offering to help. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I tried to get rid of her,â&#x20AC;? Orth said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I failed, miserably and beautifully.â&#x20AC;? Carman said her â&#x20AC;&#x153;love of the programâ&#x20AC;? remains an irresistible draw. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something special about the theater program here that just separates it, I guess, from anything else Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been a part of,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Metcalf Drama Experienceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; for a reason.â&#x20AC;?

work on,â&#x20AC;? said Carman, the daughter of Tom and Marilyn Carman of Burnsville. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But I try to portray to them and remind them that I think schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important, how you treat people matters more than a lot of things, and that happiness comes from how you live your life, not what you have.â&#x20AC;? Orth said Metcalf â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s drama program â&#x20AC;&#x153;has blossomed a great deal in the last three years, in large part due to Katherineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s involvement and contributions.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;If this is a family, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the big sister,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And in the end, they look up to her very much, and they crave her attention and praise.

Even though they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always like her when sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s telling them what to do, even though they know sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s right. I feel like sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s developing proteges.â&#x20AC;? Her own plays, she said, can be heavy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Suicide. Bullying to an extreme level. Peer pressure. Parenting,â&#x20AC;? she said, naming some topics she has dramatized in writing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Masksâ&#x20AC;? has â&#x20AC;&#x153;tones of heavyâ&#x20AC;? but a lighter touch than her other works, she said. The main character, Josie, the new girl in school, finds herself navigating peer pressure and social hierarchy, all the while carrying secrets to hide. The character

wears a series of evolving masks throughout the show. The story is â&#x20AC;&#x153;about her journey to see if she decides to be herself or to just play the games that kind of go on in junior high,â&#x20AC;? Carman said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It gets at the concept of whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s popular isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always right, and whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s right isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always popular, which is an expression I learned in elementary school from one of my teachers,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always stuck with me as a reminder.â&#x20AC;? Orthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Spectatorsâ&#x20AC;? is more of a â&#x20AC;&#x153;dramedy,â&#x20AC;? he said, built around a losing high school football team, a homecoming game and the motivations of the people watching

from the stands. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One-acts arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t intended to give the whole story,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t give you the whole back story. We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tie it up in a nice, neat bow at the end. And you have a few things to wonder about in between.â&#x20AC;? The performances at Metcalf start at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday, with 1 p.m. matinee performances on Saturday. The Evening of One Acts at Burnsville High School will be presented Jan. 23, 24 and 25 at 7 p.m. John Gessner can be reached at 952-846-2031 or email

populations in the metro, and the population is increasing. Last July, an Eagan resident reported to police that a pet dog, a 15-pound miniature schnauzer, had been killed by a coyote. Red fox numbers in the metro seem to be increasing, as well, said Connie LaFond, a state licensed rehabilitator in Maple Plain specializing in fox. The wildlife center works with LaFond, who has large outdoor pens, in treating animals. Within the metro, there are about 30 state licensed wildlife rehabilitators, some specializing in â&#x20AC;&#x153;healthy orphansâ&#x20AC;? and others songbirds, while some with more expanded clienteles help with rehabbing wildlife. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It needs to be done. And somebody has to do it,â&#x20AC;? said Vici Nass, a wildlife rehabilitator in East Bethel. The bigheartedness of rehabilitators can be seen not only in their willingness to spend time, but often their own money in rehabilitating wildlife, she said. Back at the wildlife center, on a late December morning, Dr. Agnes

home range. The couple who had rescued the bobcat, present at the release, burst into tears. Many of the animals brought to the center have been injured in collisions with windows, cars or other urban objects. Nearly all of the turtles, for instance, have been run over by cars. Pets can inflict grievous injury to wildlife, too. When asked what people can do to help wildlife, Jenni recommended keeping cats indoors. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cats are brutal hunters,â&#x20AC;? he said. Based on his personal observations, Jenni believes the populations of some species in urban areas are increasing. These are the so-called â&#x20AC;&#x153;camp followers,â&#x20AC;? or species that find niches among human activity. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A raccoon would rather live in South Minneapolis than in any woods in the country, I bet,â&#x20AC;? Jenni said. Not all of the camp followers are equally welcomed. According to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, coyotes, as resourceful predators and scavengers, have established

They can arrive at the rehabilitation center curled in boxes, sometimes borne by children awestruck by what theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve discovered in the yard. The Wildlife Rehabilitation Center welcomes nearly all wildlife â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a snapping turtle with cracked shell, a swan with injured wing â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and in 2013 alone, some 9,000 animals were treated at the wildlife center, located in Roseville. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll give a mouse as much attention as we will a trumpeter swan, if thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what it takes,â&#x20AC;? said Philip Jenni, the centerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s executive director. The center, while preserving wildlife, is perhaps also preserving a basic part of humanity. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know (if) thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s too many people who think thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not enough compassion in the world,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And really saving a squirrel is as much about that as anything else.â&#x20AC;? Founded at the University of Minnesota in 1979 as a student club in the Veterinary College, the wildlife center now has a year-round staff and an $800,000 annual budget. In summertime, the busy season, scores of college interns and volunteers swell its ranks. Wildlife comes to the center from throughout Minnesota. Some of the larger animals treated are trumpeter swans, but center staff one morning arrived to find an injured deer, struck near St. Cloud, awaiting treatment in the backseat of a car. Half of the wildlife treated at the center eventually are released. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are actually quite proud of that,â&#x20AC;? Jenni said of survival rates. In one memorable release, a bobcat, found injured along a roadside in Hubbard County, was sent racing back into its

She spoke of some of the swans at the center â&#x20AC;&#x201C; one having been injured in a â&#x20AC;&#x153;crash landingâ&#x20AC;? in a driveway â&#x20AC;&#x201C; of being almost ready for release. The center has treated about 180 different species of animals. In one room, in several tubs, snapping turtles and painted turtles, with a variety of cracks and fissures in their shells, awaited their release day. A number of bats recently have been brought to the center, dislodged from Christmas decorations stored in the attics,

Jenni said. In one room songbirds and woodpeckers flitted about in an aviary. In another room, a wild turkey seemed on the mend. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Just about anything that walks or crawls flies or swims in the state of Minnesota, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve probably had at one time or another,â&#x20AC;? Jenni said. The centerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s funding comes from individual donors â&#x20AC;&#x201D; about 12,000 during the past three years, Jenni said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I like that broad base. I think it makes us more accountable to our donors,â&#x20AC;? he said. Tim Budig is at

Police: Samâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Club cashier caught pocketing cash An Eagan woman accused of pocketing more than $2,500 in cash while working as a cashier at the Apple Valley Samâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Club was charged with a felony last week in district court. Michelle L. Kitowski, 32, allegedly stole amounts ranging from $100 to $1,060 in five separate incidents at the wholesale store located at 14940 Florence Trail between Nov. 11 and Nov. 20 of last year. According to the criminal complaint, Samâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Club contacted police following an internal investigation into the thefts. After noticing a cash shortage, the storeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s asset protection manager reviewed video footage of Kitowskiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shifts in which she was

seen concealing money in her vest pocket. In a statement Kitowski provided to police in which she admitted stealing from her cashierâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s till, Kitowski explained that if a customer paid with a large bill, she would give the customer their change but pocket the bill. The reason she stole the money, she told the police investigator, was to pay for a family memberâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s prescription medicine and â&#x20AC;&#x153;to pay for things around the house,â&#x20AC;? the complaint said. If convicted of the felony theft charge, Kitowski faces a maximum sentence of five years in prison and a fine of $10,000. â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Andrew Miller

Lakeville North band sweeps Gator Bowl Band earns eight first-place trophies, named best overall by Laura Adelmann SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Lakeville Northâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s marching band arrived home with a bounty of hardware. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got trophies all over the place,â&#x20AC;? said Lakeville North marching band teacher Nathan Earp. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never won this many at once.â&#x20AC;? The band swept a competition from marching bands around the country during a trip to the Florida Gator Bowl Dec. 27-Jan. 6 and earned so many first place trophies that LNHS Activities Director Russ Reetz called their achievements â&#x20AC;&#x153;one of the most successful trips in Lakeville school history.â&#x20AC;? The LNSH band members were awarded four first-place trophies for outstanding music, outstanding marching, outstanding general effect and outstanding drum majors during the parade portion of the competition. Sweeping those four categories earned Lakeville North the added title of best 3A marching band overall. The bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s winning streak continued during the Gator Bowl Field Show competition, which WORKMAN, from 1A sioner Tom Egan of Eagan will serve as vice-chair. The board closed out 2013 by reducing the county levy 0.6 percent. Dakota was one of seven Minnesota counties to reduce levy amounts for 2014, which drew praise from state Revenue Commissioner Myron Frans. The county levy is $128.5 million, with a total budget of $333 million for operations and capital improvements. The county has cut spending on operations by more than 15 percent since 2009.

Workman said. Operational efficiencies and attrition in more than 100 full-time employee positions account for the lower spending, Workman said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We did not lay off people in the sense that other businesses had toâ&#x20AC;? during the economic downturn, she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That was an early retirement program.â&#x20AC;? The county was also a player in building and opening the Cedar Avenue




Red Line bus rapid transit system in 2013. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve just got one more little thing to take care of, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the Cedar Grove Park and Rideâ&#x20AC;? in Eagan, Workman said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in the midst of coming up with a plan.â&#x20AC;? The countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lebanon Hills master plan calls for a new, 6.5-mile paved connector trail running east and west and a 2-mile paved loop around Holland and McDonough lakes. Many nearby residents and park activists oppose the paved trails. Workman said she thinks a majority of commissioners support the paved trails, and said the board has taken extra steps to hear from citizens. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We actually halted our process so we can get more input,â&#x20AC;? Workman said. Some people â&#x20AC;&#x201D; from the elderly and handicapped to mothers pulling their children in a wagon â&#x20AC;&#x201D; canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t use the park without paved trails, Workman said. The master plan also increases the number of unpaved trail miles, she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So no oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s losing anything. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no loss,â&#x20AC;? Workman said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And there is a need, because in my opinion, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a certain population of the county


who canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t use that park, who canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t enjoy it.â&#x20AC;? The location of the paved trail segments â&#x20AC;&#x201D; whether some will run through the heart of the park â&#x20AC;&#x201D; â&#x20AC;&#x153;can be discussed,â&#x20AC;? Workman said. 2014 will bring muchneeded library renovations at Inver Glenn in Inver Grove Heights and the Farmington Library, Workman said. The city of Farmington is letting the county house part of its library operation at City Hall while the library building, an old grocery store, is renovated outside and inside, she said. And the big project for 2014 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the 13-5 interchange â&#x20AC;&#x201D; will formally open in 2015, Workman said. While last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s construction focused on surrounding roads, this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s will focus on the interchange itself. Dakota County is the lead agency on a project with state, federal, city and county funding. The new interchange will greatly improve safety, Workman said. But first, disruption: â&#x20AC;&#x153;I tell people I would avoid it if you can.â&#x20AC;? John Gessner can be reached at (952) 846-2031 or email

Sports Just like the old neighborhood Three area boys hockey teams play outside at TCF Bank Stadium by Tad Johnson SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Memories of young boys zipping around the neighborhood ice rink materialized Saturday as Eastview, Eagan and Lakeville South played in the High School Hockey Faceoff at TCF Bank Stadium. While the boys were able to relive a sliver of their youth during the outdoor games, only Eastview emerged with a key win as it edged rival Eagan in overtime. “The experience was a very positive one for our players,” Lakeville South coach Kurt Weber said. “I think it says it all that, when we arrived and walked down the tunnel to go look at the rink, every player’s cellphone went up and pictures were being tweeted, texted, emailed, snap-chatted all over the world.” Weber said the players felt very fortunate to get the opportunity, since outdoor games have gained momentum from high profile contests in the NHL and college ranks. “It was a very fun experience for our players to play in such a neat venue,” Eagan coach Mike Taylor said. “The rink was very nice and the ice was good.” Taylor said he would like to see two or three such events organized each year, but on a limited basis, so the outdoor

(Photo by Jason Olson) games remain special. “I definitely think more outdoor games should be organized,” Weber said. “It is a very positive experience for the players, lifelong memorizes and for the game of high school hockey in Minnesota.” While South lost 6-4 to Bloomington Jefferson, in the Faceoff’s final game under the lights, John Snodgrass found the net at the 6-minute, 51-second mark of overtime to send the Lightning to a win over the Wildcats.

er goals. The first gave Eastview a 1-0 lead when Snodgrass and Keith Muehlbauer connected with Mitchell Cerrato, who scored at the 2:37 mark of the first period. Eagan retaliated with a power-play goal from Kyle Stebbing at the 8:50 mark. Assists were credited to Jack Jenson and Tommy Muck. Jenson pulled the Wildcats into the lead with an unassisted, short-handed goal at the 4:39 mark of the second period. Snodgrass fed Pierce Erickson for the game-ty-

ing goal at the 9:37 mark of the second. Both goalies were stout throughout the game, but especially in the third when they stopped everything that came their way. Eastview’s Zachary Driscoll turned away 39 of Eagan’s 41 shots on goal, while Andrew Lindgren had 26 saves. More photos from the High School Hockey Faceoff are at SunThisweek. com.

Panthers’ Cooper has 0.80 goals-against average by Mike Shaughnessy SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

For a reason Lakeville North is threatening to pull away in South Suburban Conference girls hockey, look no farther than the Panthers’ net, where junior Abby Cooper is holding opponents to a fraction of a goal per game. It’s been a comforting feeling for the Panthers to know if they score one goal they could very well still win, and if they score two they more than likely will win. “Yeah, I didn’t expect things would go quite this well,” said Cooper, whose goals-against average of 0.80 leads the state. “It’s my first year as the starter. But we’re playing well as a team, we have good chemistry and the defense is playing really well in front of me.” After beating Eagan 4-0 on Jan. 9, North was 8-0-2 in the conference and 123-2 overall. The Panthers, ranked seventh in Class AA by Let’s Play Hockey, had a four-point lead in the conference over their closest pursuers, Lakeville South and Burnsville. Lakeville North outscored opponents 47-5 in its first 10 South Suburban games. Only four

teams have scored more than one goal in a game against North, and all of those were non-conference opponents. “It starts in the defensive zone for us,” North coach Buck Kochevar said. “We have solid ‘D,’ and they have the green light to take the puck into the offensive zone when they see an opportunity. Abby’s playing great, and with a lot of confidence. And her teammates have confidence in her.” Although the Panthers suffered a blow early in the season when sisters Christi and Brianna Vetter left the team – Christi Vetter was North’s second leading scorer last season – they still have been able to put together a dangerous top line. “Our other two lines play very solid,” Kochevar said. “They don’t allow the other team many chances when they’re on the ice.” They didn’t on Jan. 9 against Eagan, which managed only 18 shots on goal in a home-ice loss. The Wildcats (8-9-1 overall), a state tournament qualifier last season, are fighting back after a rough start that saw them win two of their first nine games. But they lost both of their games against North this season by 4-0 scores.

SUN THISWEEK - Burnsville - Eagan January 17, 2014 11A

LI, from 1A the universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s College of Biological Sciences, the Tribune reported. Li co-captained the Blazettes in 2010-11, her senior year, along with Hassler, Hannah Blankush and Kaitlin Osgood. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She was a strong leader, a very talented dancer,â&#x20AC;? Anna Abbe, the assistant varsity coach that year and current Blazettes head coach, said in an interview. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Her love for her team and her sport showed every time she took the floor.â&#x20AC;? She was funny, excited about life, got along with everyone on the team and was an uplifting presence during practices, Abbe said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whatever she does, she does 100 percent. She worked hard at dance, she worked hard at her academics,â&#x20AC;? Abbe said, adding that Li was involved in STOP, from 1A The center median stop is expected to cut at least 10 minutes off an hour-long round-trip commute. Eagan city officials welcome the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fix to the Eagan station. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The MVTA would have preferred off ramps to a station but the enhanced center option is

a Chinese dance program away from school. Hassler said she saw Li recently at the Target store in Burnsville and at the South Suburban Conference dance finals. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She literally was the one person probably in the entire world that was always happy,â&#x20AC;? said Hassler, who attends the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She cared so much for the Blazette team and was the hardest-working. She had the most contagious laugh. She was the loudest one on the team and the most helpful one.â&#x20AC;? Liâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s father, Ben, who traveled to Chicago after the accident, told the Tribune his daughter â&#x20AC;&#x153;was very happy in her 21 years because we never pushed her and she achieved many things.â&#x20AC;? In September Li began volunteering at a Minneapolis-area home care and

hospice clinic, where she that Hoang drowned and reported. at (952) 846-2031 or email provided companionship that alcohol contributed and played piano for pa- to his death, the Tribune John Gessner can be reached tients and their families, the Tribune reported. The paper cited Chi-          cago police reports stating that Ken Hoang had climbed over a railing onto the ice to retrieve his cellphone and fell into the water. Li then dropped down onto the ice to try to rescue him. When she yelled out for help, Phan Hoang also stepped onto the ice and fell in. Phan Hoang, who was expected to be released from the hospital Wednesday, issued a statement, the Tribune reported. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I lost two good friends,â&#x20AC;? it said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not easy seeing your friend drift away and having one die in your arms. I have never felt so helpless in my life.â&#x20AC;? The Cook County medical examinerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office ruled

less costly and a better option for Red Line passengers,â&#x20AC;? said Eagan City Council Member Gary Hansen, who is also chair of the Minnesota Valley Transit Authority. Hansen and Eagan Mayor Mike Maguire were representatives on the policy advisory committee that examined the various options.

Working with Metro Transit, county officials have an ambitious schedule in which preliminary engineering and final design would be completed this year and construction would begin in 2015.

SUN THISWEEK - Burnsville - Eagan January 17, 2014 15A


There was no shortage of eye-catching sci-fi costumery at the Star Wars Extravaganza held Saturday, Jan. 11, at the Steeple Center in Rosemount. Hosted by the Rosemount Area Arts Council and the Robert Trail Library, the event included a kids costume exhibition and family photo opportunities with characters from the 501st Legion, a volunteer group of characters from the popular George Lucas film series thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s set a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away. Far left: Princess Leia was well represented at the event, with Robert Trail childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s librarian Kathy Kleckner, left, and Tamara Scott of Rosemount coming dressed as the sciencefictional princess;. Top: Characters from the 501st Legion in attendance included Imperial Stormtroopers and even a Tusken Raider. Near left: Kids were encouraged to come dressed in costume and have their photos taken with Darth Maul and other 501st Legion actors. (Photos by Andrew Miller)

Young actor adapts to the jungle

Eighteen-year-old Landon Franke is cast as the titular ape-man and Claire Vietti, 15, plays Jane in Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Castle Theaterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s production of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tarzan.â&#x20AC;? The musical runs Jan. 17-26 at the Lakeville Area Arts Center. (Photo submitted)

Farmington HS 12th-grader cast as lead in â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Tarzanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

In his first leading role, Landon Franke finds himself swinging from vine to vine. The Farmington High School 12th-grader plays the bare-chested title character in Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Castle Theaterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s production of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tarzan,â&#x20AC;? which runs this month at the Lakeville Area Arts Center. The part requires a good deal of physical exertion, and the high-energy Franke, adorned in a dreadlock wig and loin cloth in the show, is up to the challenge of playing the jungle-dwelling apeman. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quite an experience because thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of movement â&#x20AC;&#x201C; swinging on vines, handstands, cartwheels, somersaults,â&#x20AC;? he explained. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s actually really fun.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tarzan,â&#x20AC;? adapted from the Broadway musical of the same name, is Frankeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fourth show with Dakota County-based Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Castle Theater. Joining

him in the 130-member cast are some familiar faces â&#x20AC;&#x201C; his dad, Curtis, is cast as an ape, and his twin siblings Ramsey and Brielle, both 15, play baby Tarzanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mother and father. The family has been preparing for their parts in the show together, Franke said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll sit in the living room and read lines together,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And over Christmas we took a road trip to Duluth and threw in the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Tarzanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; CD â&#x20AC;&#x201C; we rocked out to â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Tarzanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; in the car.â&#x20AC;? Franke got his start in theater his freshman year at Farmington High School with a part in â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Idiotâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Guide to High School.â&#x20AC;? He took to theater immediately and has regularly appeared in shows at the school, most recently the fall 2012 production of â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Music Man.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I got to high school and found theater, it was like, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Hey, this is for me,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;? he said, adding that he hopes to continue acting next year when he be-
