City’s apartment freeze unfrozen Burnsville council will entertain ‘luxury’ rental plan by John Gessner SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

An unwritten rule of Burnsville city politics that new apartment projects aren’t welcome here was shattered Tuesday when City Council members agreed to entertain plans for a 169-unit “luxury” building in the Heart of the City. Burnsville-based Chase Real Estate Inc. wants to build the four-story project on 2.5 acres at the northeast corner of Nicollet Avenue South and Travelers Trail. It would include 8,000 square feet of ground-floor retail. The property is part of the unfinished Nicollet Plaza development that includes Cub Foods and adjacent retailers, two fourstory buildings of condos

and retail, an office and bank, and 30 townhomes. Chase promises an “upscale” rental project with “high-end finishes” and “expansive amenities” that will appeal to young professionals as well as empty-nesters looking to ditch their single-family homes. “It’s really part of this renters-by-choice movement,” Joe McElwain, Chase development manager, said in introducing the plan at Tuesday’s council work session. The company has built 10 such projects in the last decade, including The Flats at Cedar Grove in Eagan and Hearthstone Apartments and Townhomes in Apple Valley, he said. Burnsville has been left out of the metro area’s recent apartment boom — partly because it has little bare land left, but also because developers couldn’t get a toe in the door.

Church project raises concerns Growing Berean Baptist’s plans include new auditorium by John Gessner SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

As many churches struggle with declining numbers, Berean Baptist in Burnsville reports that its worship attendance grew by nearly 30 percent in 2014 and 2015. Berean has expanded to include a Lakeville campus at Kenwood Trail Mid-

dle School and plans to open a third by next year, according to its website. But growth comes with headaches, including neighborhood objections to Berean’s plans to expand its home campus at 309 County Road 42 E. Both neighbors and church members spoke at a Jan. 9 public hearing before the Planning Commission on Berean’s plan for a 26,409-square-foot addition. The project includes a new 1,046seat worship space and auditorium, an expanded commons area, additional See CHURCH, 6A

Helping hand has lasting impact

District 196 board member says a first-impression of American kindness motivates him today by Tad Johnson SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

When a 19-year-old Sachin Isaacs arrived at the Amtrak train depot in Winona, Minnesota, in 1999, the two suitcases he had brought from India had been jostled around so much during the ride from Chicago that they had burst open and scattered his clothes. Isaacs admits that it was a pathetic sight, which was compounded when the emigrating college student’s ride didn’t show up and he didn’t have anyone else to call. After Isaacs sat at the station for about an hour as the clock neared midnight, the only other person there – the station master ready to close up

Former West executive gives Award shows $100,000 to city of Eagan Burnsville hotel’s Money to be turnaround complete used to restore town hall building

John Nasseff and his family are giving back to Eagan in a big way. The 92-year-old philanthropist and retired senior executive with West Publishing from St. Paul has donated $100,000 toward work on Eagan’s 1914 Town Hall. Nasseff was a senior executive when West Publishing, what is now Thomson Reuters, relocated from St. Paul to Eagan thanks in part to the help of the city administrator at the time Tom Hedges. The money will go toward what will be called the “Tom Hedges Plaza” near Eagan’s 1914 Town hall. Other funds will go toward displays within the

The city’s current administrator Dave Osberg said the city hasn’t been able to fully renovate the building since an arson in 2013 destroyed much of the building. “(Nasseff) heard the tragic situation about the old town hall wanted to help and wanted to find

a way to recognize someone who made a difference,” said Tom Walrath of Thomson Reuters. Walrath said this will ensure future generations know the history of Eagan. Nasseff and his wife, Helene Houle, wanted to See DONATION, 5A

Built in 1985, the old Holiday Inn Burnsville was a shiny new object in a fast-growing suburb, part of the County Road 42 commercial boom that followed Burnsville Center’s opening years earlier. “To get the banquet space and a restaurant and bar and all the amenities that make a hotel a full-service hotel was something the community very much wanted,” recalled former City Council Member and Mayor Dan McElroy. But the hotel, in a five-story, two-tone brick building overlooking the junction of interstates 35E and 35W, drifted into disrepair in the 2000s. Further buffeted by recession and low occupancy, Holiday Inn Burnsville was one of a number of Minnesota lodging properties

that eventually went back to the bank. In 2010 it became a reclamation project for new owner Blithe Hospitality Group, which had bought the old Super 8 Hotel in Lakeville and transformed it into Holiday Inn Lakeville and Rudy’s Redeye Grill. Six years and several million dollars later, Burnsville’s flagship hotel has completed its turnaround with high honors. Now the Best Western Premier Nicollet Inn, it’s been named 2016 Large Property of the Year by the Minnesota Lodging Association. “Customer care — that’s always been our differentiator, and that comes back to the people,” said Nathan Kremer, who came to Holiday Inn Burnsville as a bartender in 2002 and has been general manager See HOTEL, 10A

Eagan Police: Two teens charged in Northview Park robbery The Eagan Police Department has made two arrests in connection with a robbery Jan. 3 at Northview Park. Mohamed Bue Radwan, of St. Paul, was arrested Jan. 5 and charged with aggravated robbery in

the first degree, according to the Eagan Police Department. Another male from St. Paul was arrested and charged with the same crime. The police did not release the name of the 17-year-old male.

Investigators from the Eagan Police Department have identified a third suspect in this case but did not release the suspect’s identity. There is no reason to believe there is an ongoing threat to the public.

Officers initially responded to a report of juveniles who said they were robbed at gunpoint in a parking lot just northwest of Eagan High School and Dakota Hills Middle School. According to the Police

Department, two 15-yearold victims and a 16-yearold victim said they were involved in an attempted drug exchange when one of three suspects pointed a gun at them and demanded valuables. Eagan police spokes-

man Aaron Machtemes said the suspects came away with some items from the victims. An unidentified caller, not one of the victims, made the initial contact with police.

MASH baseball training facility relocates to Eagan by Andy Rogers SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

All that Minnesota MASH needs is a big warehouse full of weights, rowing machines, training tables, batting cages, baseball bats and squat racks. After five years in business and with a growing client base, the training facility needed more space, so the Minnesota MASH Baseball Club and MASH Performance facility moved into a new facility in Eagan last November. About a year ago, the owners felt they had outgrown their location in Burnsville, but a zoning issue inspired the move to Eagan. The owners said they would have needed to apply for a conditional use permit for the place they were looking at in Burnsville, which would have taken months to approve, so they decided to look elsewhere. Owners set up shop in Eagan within a building that already houses Gleasonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Gymnastics School and found no zoning issue for the gym. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think it all worked out better in the end,â&#x20AC;? said owner and founder Tom Buske. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a much larger location than the one in Burnsville, where they had three batting cages to

work with. In February the facility will open up another portion of the building, which includes five more batting cages, bringing them up to a total of nine. The new location off highways 77 and 13 at 2025 Silver Bell Road works well for their clients. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really easy for all our families to get to,â&#x20AC;? owner Steve McGuiggan said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a hotbed for baseball compared to the rest of the state. This area has some of the best talent.â&#x20AC;? The gym essentially houses two different businesses: a baseball club and a performance facility. The Minnesota MASH Baseball Club provides services for 10- to 18-year-old players as well as collegiate and professional baseball players. They have about 18 select baseball teams who play during the offseason. During the high school season, many MASH gym mates go on to play with their high school teams. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll go to games and thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like 18 guys who know each other between the two teams,â&#x20AC;? McGuiggan said. The elite 17-and-under team plays all over the country and features a number of Division 1

MASH has worked with several area baseball prospects who went on to play baseball at the collegiate level and Buske said they currently train professional baseball, soccer and hockey players. But a large part of their clientele is youth baseball players. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have players who just want to get better and make a traveling team and we have some high school players who want to get drafted,â&#x20AC;? Buske said. The MASH Performance side works with athletes as young as 12 to anyone in the general pop-

Experience Burnsville is guided a board of directors which includes Jenni Faulkner (city of Burnsville), Burnsville Mayor Elizabeth Kautz, Nathan Kremer (Best Western Premier Nicollet

Inn), Jeff LaFavre (IAG Commercial), Melissa Meyer (Burnsville Center), warren d. mosier (Cornerstone Copy Center), Suzi Ohlhues (UTC Aerospace Systems) and Peter Wright (Minnesota Zoo). Experience Burnsville is dedicated to promoting Burnsville as a vibrant destination of choice featuring a rich and diverse mix of culture, arts, shopping, accommodations, dining and attractions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tourism and hospitality in Burnsville plays an important role for both the hospitality industry as well as the Burnsville community,â&#x20AC;? said Kautz, chairperson of Experience Burnsville. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It contributes full-time and part-time employment for the citizens of our city, helps foster economic development and provides an enhanced quality of life for those who live, work and play here and the city of Burnsville takes great pride in the hospitality it shows its guests.â&#x20AC;?

The facility is also available for rent to baseball programs as well as softball and even soccer programs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We can fit the needs of the individual teams,â&#x20AC;? Buske said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the beauty of what we do here.â&#x20AC;? They have eight full-time staff including baseball coaches, and strength and conditioning coaches as well as an office manager. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They know more about hu-

man performance and baseball fundamentals than I would ever know,â&#x20AC;? Buske said. Premier Sports and Spine Center recently partnered with MASH Performance as well offering physical therapy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;MASH works with injury prevention, but if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not within our area of expertise, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll refer them to Premier,â&#x20AC;? Buske said. For more information, visit www.mashperformance.com or www.mnmash.com. Email Andy Rogers andy.rogers@ecm-inc.com.

Opinion

Session 2017: Our message to lawmakers Newspaper editorial boards across Minnesota must feel at times as if they are speaking to a brick wall when it comes to making recommendations to state lawmakers. And there is good reason for such feelings. Repeated recommendations to the Minnesota Legislature during and in the closing days of the 2016 session mostly fell on deaf ears. Repeated calls for a special session in the final six months of 2016 to take care of unfinished regular session business also fell on deaf ears. It is almost incomprehensible that lawmakers would go home without completing action on key subjects that included bonding, taxes and transportation. But yet they did after 11th-hour negotiations exploded in their faces, leaving no wiggle room for resolution. With those failures on the books, lawmakers were still unable to resolve their differences and meet in special session to take care of unfinished business.

ECM Editorial Even with the added pressure of a mutual desire by Republicans and Democrats to address a health insurance crisis, calls for a special session fell on deaf ears. Right now some 100,000 state residents face staggering health insurance premium increases on the individual market but are not eligible for federal subsidies. The past year was government dysfunction as its best, or worst, if you prefer. The opening of the 2017 session on Jan. 3 left many wondering if there would be a return to common sense governing or more of the same gridlock, 2016 style. The relationship between Gov. Mark Dayton and House Speaker Kurt Daudt, R-Crown, is cool at best. And with Republicans in control of both bodies of state government, more hard lines could be drawn. On the surface, that does not

bode well for a productive session. One bright spot, however, is the rise of Sen. Paul Gazelka, R-Nisswa, newly elected as Senate Majority Leader. Gazelka is a solid conservative but a man with a desire to compromise and make government function. He could be the needed bridge between Gov. Dayton and Speaker Daudt. His task will not be easy, but we believe he understands the role he may need to play. There is plenty of work to do in this session. Taking care of unfinished business from 2016 is at the top of the list. Crafting a new state budget will also spotlight differences between DFL and Republican philosophical positions on spending. Compromise on all parts will be necessary. If lawmakers make progress on tax relief, health insurance reform and transportation spending, the state’s projected $1.4 billion surplus will shrink. How to address funding levels for K-12 and higher education are important subjects that

must be debated. As an editorial board, we could set down a series of recommendations that we believe the Legislature should follow. That’s what we have done in the past. But faced with the prospect of speaking to the brick wall once again, we will delay editorial comments to a review of the actions lawmakers take in 2017. We do have one straightforward request as the session progresses. Get your work done and get your work done on time. No more 11th-hour decisions and cramming through bills which leave the public in the dark. Government in Minnesota will be best served if elected officials use the next five months to finish business on time and with the transparency that has been sadly missing. This is an opinion of the ECM Editorial Board. Sun Thisweek and the Dakota County Tribune are part of ECM Publishers Inc.

Letters Nobody wins To the editor: I was disgusted by the recent findings of the investigation of the University of Minnesota football team, even if only parts of it were accurate, and I am not saying that they weren’t. Whatever went on that night was disgusting and shameful for all parties involved. There are many questions that need answering from those in attendance and why Coach Tracy Claeys lack of leadership allowed the boycott. As for his poorly worded tweet (I do not believe it was meant in any way to say sexual violence isn’t an issue or this type of behavior is OK), he should have kept silent and dealt with the issue in-house. The tweet showed his poor leadership abilities and his losing control of his team. Had he not said anything, would we be up in arms that he was silent on the issue? Either way, the majority got their wish and he is gone. Was this handled well? No. To quote a former Gopher athlete: “Nobody wins in this scenario.” Sexual violence is wrong. What prompted me to write this letter is the self-righteous attitude expressed against the players (not the 10 charged, they can suffer whatever comes their way), coach

and administration. Joe Nathan’s recent columns made some valid points from a “jaded’ point of view. People heard athletes sexually assaulted a coed at a party, then the players boycotted the Holiday Bowl in support of their teammates (without all the facts and details), then read Claeys tweet, and rushed to judgment, never trying to find out what led to the boycott or what the tweet meant. We have an entire part of our population that read and saw only what they wanted and made their judgment on that alone. Most certainly the U of M Athletic Department has a long way to go to clean up its act, athletes should be held to a higher standard of behavior as well as the coaches and administrators. Claeys is gone, let’s let the school try and clean up this and all the other messes and hope this the end of the story. GARY NERKOCH Burnsville

HUH-

Make Minnesota great again To the editor: A discussion of greatness would have to include a good educational

system, one that enables all youngsters to gain the skills necessary either to merely survive or, on the other hand, thrive with a healthy income. Part of what gives access to such education may include decent treatment by the federal tax system, whatever their income. Many middle and upper income folks have access to deductions for medical expenses, education expenses for those who can afford to send their children to a private school, and capital gains deductions. Lower-income earners may find it more difficult to access deductions and exemptions on their tax forms. And there is the possibility of gaining breaks for some struggling parents. For instance, the Earned Income Tax Credit lifted more than 9 million Americans out of poverty in the last year on record, and some of them are children in the south metro area. Many middle-income people have tax breaks like home mortgage deductions, education deductions for those who can afford to send their kids to private schools, and capital gains deductions. Our members of Congress know how important it is to extend that program to cover all low income people, especially those who would otherwise be taxed into pov-

erty. Currently, single people, among others, don’t have access to many of the benefits wealthier folks have. Legislative plans to extend eligibility may provide some help. Extending EITC for childless workers would benefit 13 million hire-ons under the plan of Speaker of the House Paul Ryan and 16 million employees under the plan of U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown and U.S. Rep. Richard Neal, both Democrats. We should advocate with U.S. Rep. Jason Lewis, R-Woodbury, for an extension of the EITC that would benefit many residents of Dakota County.

Thank a mentor, be a mentor To the editor: Mr. Schaefer, Ruth H., Mary M. – important people in my youth who were there when I needed them. We can all think back to a time in our childhood when we depended on others for support while struggling with an important personal decision, needed a role model to provide guidance in new or uncertain situations, or simply wanted a friend to be at our side to share in the good times. January is National Mentoring Month. This month is set aside each year to spotlight the importance of mentors and the need for every child to have a caring adult in his or her life. NMM celebrates mentoring and the positive effect it can have on young lives, with the goals of raising awareness of mentoring in its various forms and to recruit mentors, especially in programs that have waiting lists of young people. I’m proud to serve as vice president on the board of Kids ‘n Kinship, a local nonprofit youth mentoring organization serving south-

ern Dakota County. We provide over 60 children, ages 5-16, primarily from single-parent homes, with the powerful opportunity to have an additional caring adult in their life through our mentor individuals, couples, or families. We continue to have a waiting list of great kids, however, and are always working to recruit more volunteer mentors. Visit our website at www. kidsnkinship.org, follow us on Facebook at facebook.com/kidsnkinship, or Twitter at twitter.com/ kidsnkinship to learn more about our vibrant organization. Through a Kids ‘n Kinship mentoring relationship, a child forms a long-term friendship with a caring adult, receives positive attention and experience with a variety of activities. They develop the sense of selfworth that is essential to successfully function in school, in healthy relationships, and, eventually, a job. Whether you choose to be a role model and friend to children in your own life or seek a more formal opportunity to connect, remember this month to honor those who served as a formal or informal mentor to you and consider the opportunity to pass the gift on to those in your own community. KARLA KOSEL Eagan

A time for reflection and thanks

which is celebrating 20 years of community impact. We also help with local high school scholarship programs, and community celebrations such as Leprechaun Days and Eagan Funfest. In 2016, we made considerable investments in natural gas facilities, both transmission pipelines and individual services. The past year marked the end of coal operations at Black Dog Plant in Burnsville as the plant was converted to natural gas as part of Xcel Energy’s plan to transition away from coal and reduce carbon emissions. Today we are working to transform our energy future and invest in lowcost wind energy while maintaining a safe, reliable and affordable electric system for customers. As the nation’s No. 1 utility wind energy provider, we’re proposing to add more wind energy by building new wind farms in Minnesota and North Dakota. We’re building on our industry-leading carbon reductions while delivering what our customers and communities want-cleaner, more renewable energy at an affordable price. We’re finding that wind energy is in some cases cheaper than natural gas, making it a great value for our customers. Sixty percent of our electricity will be carbon-free in 15 years. We see this achievement as a win for customers who want clean energy at a cost effective price. Next year we’ll continue to deliver reliable electricity, while ramping up our economic development throughout the region. We’re working with communities to identify and develop sites ready for business expansion that will create capital investment and local jobs. Thanks again, to everyone, from the businesses community to nonprofit organizations, from local government partners to friends and neighbors. I wish you all the best in 2017.

To the editor: I love living and working in Dakota County. In my role as Xcel Energy community relations manager, I get to work with customers and local officials to help solve issues and support the organizations that make this community a great place to live and work. Our employees pledged $3 million to the United Way for 2017, a figure matched by the company for a total of $5.7 million. We continue JAKE SEDLACEK our longtime support of Xcel Energy community Learning Buddies pro- relations manager, gram through DARTS,

tation of Eaganâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s history. Nasseff was inspired to help the city recover from the arson fire that mostly destroyed Eaganâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 1914 Town Hall about three years ago. Prior Lakeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Michael Duane Damron (aka Wade Duane Arvidson) pleaded guilty Oct. 14 to felony first-degree arson and burglary and was sentenced to seven years in prison and was ordered to pay more than $450,000 in restitution. Damronâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brother and co-defendant Wynn Donald Arvidson, 51, also of Prior Lake, pleaded guilty to felony first-degree arson. His sentencing is scheduled for later this

week. West Publishing moved part of its operations to St. Paul in the 1970s, according to Garrison, before moving its headquarters to Eagan in 1992. The Eagan City Council formally received the donation last week. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m extremely humbled,â&#x20AC;? Hedges said at the meeting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My family is very humbled. I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t expect to be back here again, not in this manner. John (Nasseff) did great things for the city of Eagan.â&#x20AC;? Email Andy Rogers at andy.rogers@ecm-inc.com.

6A January 13, 2017 SUN THISWEEK - Burnsville - Eagan

CHURCH, from 1A classrooms, expansion of the parking lot southwest of the church and a new parking lot to the west across Plymouth Avenue. Between the new worship center and the existing sanctuary, the church could seat up to 1,700, according to the city. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m all for expansion and I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great to see a community church grow,â&#x20AC;? said Paul Willson, 217 Geneva Blvd. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But this expansion looks like a megachurch, in my opinion.â&#x20AC;? Already, traffic from Sunday worship makes it difficult to get in and out of his neighborhood, said Willson, who lives at the corner of Geneva and Innsbrook Lane. The 17.6-acre church site includes three separate parcels west of County ISAACS, from 1A master cracked open local phone book, found seven Thorns, but no Mary. The worker started with the first Thorn on the list and called four more Thorns before finding Mary and her husband, Buzz, on the other end of the line. In the middle of the night, Mary and Buzz Thorn drove their pickup truck to the station, placed Isaacsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; two tattered bags in the back and ferried him off to the only dormitory that was open at the time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That one gesture has impacted me for a lifetime,â&#x20AC;? said Isaacs, the newest member of the Rosemount-Apple Valley-Eagan School Board. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know me. She picked me up at a very late hour and possibly influenced the trajectory of my life as a human being by that one act.â&#x20AC;? Isaacs was among one of the top newsmakers in Dakota County in 2016 as he won on Aug. 9 a seven-way race for a School Board seat, vacated when longtime Board Member Rob Duchscher moved out of the district in March. Isaacs, who was unable to gain a seat in 2015 against three incumbents, won the contest handily as he earned 28 percent of the vote. He outdistanced

Road 42 and south of 145th Street E. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s surrounded by single-family property to the north, west and south, and Good Shepherd Lutheran Church to the north. The church is zoned R1 single-family, which allows religious institutions as a conditional use. The expansion would require several changes to the churchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s conditional use permit, including allowing a 42-foot-high worship center in an R1 zone, which has a 30-foot maximum. The separate parking lot would require both a permit amendment and a zoning variance. A variance would be needed to allow more than three driveways at the church site, where six are proposed and five now exist, according to the city. When the church sent

more than 300 invitations for a neighborhood open house on the project in September, only one resident attended. When the city hosted a neighborhood meeting on Jan. 4 with church leaders and their development team, 17 residents showed up and voiced a long list of concerns. The meeting was a â&#x20AC;&#x153;major blowup,â&#x20AC;? said Bob Hilleque, 150 E. Travelers Trail, who said he started attending Berean in 1994 and that the church is about 60 years old. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just a wonderful place to be,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I hope that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll consider approving this.â&#x20AC;? The crowd swelled to a full house in the City Hall council chambers for the Planning Commission hearing. At staffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recommendation, the commission voted to table the ap-

plication to give the church and residents more time to discuss solutions to neighborhood concerns and a traffic study the church has conducted. Another neighborhood meeting, to be coordinated by city staff, is set for Tuesday, Jan. 17, at the church. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll take a place of worship in a community over the alternative any day,â&#x20AC;? Commissioner Ram Singh said. But, he added, â&#x20AC;&#x153;How much can we do in an R1 neighborhood? I support places of worship, but I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know.â&#x20AC;? The number of vehicles coming from the south to get to the church and safety of pedestrians and children is a key concern of neighbors. Other concerns have been directed at the extra parking and lighting and the loss of wooded areas to construction. With parking on both

sides of Plymouth Avenue, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m basically going to be driving through the parking lot of a churchâ&#x20AC;? to get home, said Mark Schroer, 14600 Plymouth Ave. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think for us, this is an issue of traffic, of parking, of size and scope,â&#x20AC;? said Damon Laliberte, 14609 Innsbrook Lane, who said he shares a property line with the church where the expansion would encroach. There is no planned buffer between the site and the nearest neighbors, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not talking about a church,â&#x20AC;? said Robert Breckner, 14725 Innsbrook Circle, who said the church has outgrown its site. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re talking about an events center that is a church.â&#x20AC;? The church has â&#x20AC;&#x153;done a lot of due diligenceâ&#x20AC;? and will have its traffic engineer at the Jan. 17

meeting, said Eric Rose, of Lakeville, who chairs Bereanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s building committee and is a member of the church elder board. The neighborhood objections on Jan. 4 â&#x20AC;&#x153;kind of threw us a curveball,â&#x20AC;? he said. But the church wants to work with neighbors on possible concessions both sides can live with, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We understand the concerns and we sympathize with the concerns of the residents,â&#x20AC;? Rose said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to try to do everything we can to be the best neighbor.â&#x20AC;? The church also expanded its building in 2000.

his closest competitor â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Wendy Brekken â&#x20AC;&#x201C; by 9 percentage points. He said the fact that he ran the previous year was a boost to his campaign as people were familiar with him during the second campaignâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s door-knocking phase. Among the reasons he said voters likely supported him were that he is the parent with school-age children, he represented a diverse perspective as a first-generation immigrant and he earned the endorsement of the teachers union â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Dakota County United Educators.

age of students receiving the free or reduced-price lunches. One district school reported a fourfold increase in such students in the past 10 years. Isaacs says that research shows that students facing food insecurity at home wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be ready to learn at school or continue the learning at home. He advocates for expansion of The Sheridan Story program, which can provide students in need with food to take home in a discrete manner using donated funds of $180 per year per student. The Minneapolis-based nonprofit started working with District 196 two years ago. It has identified 950 district students who are in need of the program. As of November, about 550 students had been sponsored. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is the solvable problem,â&#x20AC;? Isaacs said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With a little bit of support, we can help these kids out of that atmosphere and get them to focus on education.â&#x20AC;? Isaacs says the second way in which the district can close the achievement gap is to find more ways to provide homework help for minority students. Since parents are often addressing multiple issues such as extended work hours, multiple children at home, mealtime and

bedtime routines or a language barrier, homework can get lost in the shuffle. Isaacs said after-school homework help in the buildings and at home needs to be expanded. He said the one-to-one iPad initiative makes tools like Facebook and Skype more possible in linking students at home to homework helpers throughout the district. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These are the things we must do,â&#x20AC;? he said. That leads Isaacs into his third initiative, which is to increase community engagement. It starts with getting all parents involved in their childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s education and extends to making sure support staff and community members assist in creating a culture where learning is valued. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ultimately for the success of the kids, the key stakeholders need to be invested,â&#x20AC;? Isaacs said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the whole-child initiative, each stakeholder needs to do their part to help students attain the best life they can, achieve their goals and reach their potential. Learning doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t start and stop in the classrooms. It happens throughout (the day).â&#x20AC;? He said there are many retired people in the district who could serve as ideal homework helpers, and the recruitment of

volunteers needs to increase. Isaacs is taking to the coffee shops and other sites throughout the district to do his part in increasing community engagement. He encourages district residents to offer their views, suggestions or talk about their experiences with the district during his monthly listening sessions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These ideas will happen when there is more free-flowing dialogue,â&#x20AC;? Isaacs said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m ready to do my part to help catalyze this relationship to what it can be.â&#x20AC;? To find out where and when the sessions are held, district residents can go online to Isaacsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/SachinISD196.

cussions. His perspective of many times being the only minority in a classroom or even an entire town, as was the case in the small Wisconsin town he spent his college summers at, he says will result in better policymaking. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The robustness of the discussion will result in better outcomes for our children,â&#x20AC;? he said. When Isaacs was growing up in India, he was being groomed to work in the successful retail industry business that was owned by his father. But Isaacs said he wanted to do something different. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s when he embarked on his quest to become an American college student, where he landed at Winona State. The school had made the best scholarship offer, which he had to earn to keep by maintaining a high gradepoint average. In school, he met his future wife, earned a bachelorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s degree in business and went on to receive a Master of Business Administration from the University of St. Thomas. He said his view of numbers through the lens of economics will allow him to see the story behind the statistics and strategies

Key issues Now that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in office, Isaacs says he wants to address three key issues. He plans to focus on reducing the academic achievement gap between minority and white students, addressing food insecurity and improving community engagement. They are all interrelated, according to Isaacs. Statistics show that many students who are not achieving well in school are minorities receiving free or reduced-price lunches based on federal family income guidelines. Some of these students are coming to school hungry, as poverty in Dakota County has increased along with the percent-

ISAACS, from 6A to address problems. The senior product manager of clinical assessments at NCS Pearson is the only School Board member with children currently in district schools. His oldest daughter is a first-grade student at Glacier Hills Elementary School of Arts and Sciences and his youngest is still in preschool. He said this will also bring a different perspective as a parent whose children are on the receiving end of instruction. He also has the perspective of a parent who recently made the choice to move into District 196 because of

the schools. He said it was the districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s triple A philosophy of educating students wellrounded in the arts, athletic and academics that attracted them. To see the AAA in action, Isaacs is on a quest to spend a day in every district school in the 2016-17 calendar year. He had visited six out of 31 as of mid-December. He said so far heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been impressed with the learnercentered environment in the classrooms with a noncommoditized of imparting education that finds the best way for each student to learn. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of the things I

have seen is the personal investment,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have been deeply impressed at the personal accountability that our teachers take for each of their kids. â&#x20AC;Ś It shows the amount of depth of caring that educators have and the responsibility they feel in trying to make each one of our kids live up to their fullest potential.â&#x20AC;? Isaacs said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hoping the kinds of successful strategies and efforts being made by teachers become shared throughout the district. As one example he saw four English composition students working on a joint writing project where each student wrote a part of a

larger work. While each student had to write their own piece, that had to collaborate in real time using Google Docs to ensure the different pieces worked together as a whole. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This shows the students that critical thinking is a process and used not just in science or mathematics,â&#x20AC;? Isaacs said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Projects like this, this is excellence, this is a world-class education. â&#x20AC;Ś This gives our students global readiness to go out in the world with a competitive advantage.â&#x20AC;?

2017 Tips for realizing goals Get to the truth about in the year ahead dieting and weight loss The dawn of a new year represents a chance to start anew and set goals for the months ahead. New Yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s resolutions are often made to provide the motivation people need to improve their lives and make a new year as productive and happy as possible. While people who make New Yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s resolutions fully intend to realize those goals, few actually stick to the game plan. According to researchers at the University of Scranton, just 8 percent of people who make their New Yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s resolutions actually achieve those resolutions. While that might make it seem like the odds are against men and women who have resolved to improve their lives in the year ahead, the following tips can help adults realize their goals for the new year and beyond. - Emphasize time management. Hectic schedules can quickly derail resolutions. Many people want to eat healthier and exercise more but find their time is stretched pretty thin, which can make it difficult to get to the gym or prepare healthy meals at home. Finding ways to manage time more effectively can make it easier to stay committed to New Yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s resolutions. Right down your daily schedule and look for ways to free up time. If you routinely take an hour for lunch each day, use that time to exercise and eat at your desk when you return from your walk, workout or jog. Try to wake up 30 to 60 minutes earlier each morning to exercise, and make use of time before bed by preparing a healthy lunch for the following day. - Make your goals public. By publicly declaring your intention to improve your life, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re putting some positive pressure on yourself to fully commit to your goal. Friends and loved ones can be great sources of support, and once theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re aware of your efforts, you likely wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to let them down. Once you have decided on a resolution, post your short-term and long-term goals to your Facebook page or let your immediate family and closest friends know of your goals in person. Their encouragement can help you stay on track, and they may even offer to help you realize your goals.

- Keep track of your progress. Keep a resolutions journal or start a blog that allows you to write about your efforts. If your goal is to pay down debt, make a spreadsheet that tracks your progress. That spreadsheet might be more motivational than simply seeing a loan or credit card balance gradually reduce on your monthly statement. Writing about your trials and errors can help others and also provide a great way for you to explore your approach and tinker with it to ensure your ultimate success. - Expect setbacks. If realizing resolutions was easy, the success rate would be greater than 8 percent. Setbacks are inevitable, so donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t allow them to derail your efforts. Even if setbacks occur when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re well on your way to success, regroup and get back on track without getting down on yourself. - Reward yourself. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hesitate to reward yourself as you realize your short-term goals and draw closer to making your long-term goal a reality. For example, if weight loss is your goal and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve adhered to your diet and lost some weight, reward yourself with a favorite meal eaten in moderation. New Yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s resolutions may be difficult to realize, but a few simple strategies can help you achieve your goals and enjoy the fruits of your hard work.

Weight loss is a popular resolution come the new year. But in spite of that popularity, the resolution to lose weight is no small task. When resolving to lose weight, men and women will encounter an abundance of information about dieting and weight loss. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s difficult to know who to believe and to determine which plans will be effective. Research published by Shape magazine says nearly one in three young people embark on a new diet each month, but 45 percent give up after one week, and about half abandon their goals within a month. Data released in the Daily Mail in 2013 said that although one in seven (13 percent) women in the United Kingdom stick to a diet for 13 weeks or more, nearly one in five (19 percent) succumb to their favorite food cravings after a month. Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the magic formula for weight loss? Experts advise that there isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t any. Weight-loss strategies that require fad dieting or restrict certain foods may not produce long-term success. Rather, a lifestyle overhaul is often the most effective weight loss strategy. - Recognize that quick fixes do not work. Drastic weight loss approaches may produce immediate results, but such plans are not sustainable. Drastic plans include certain detoxes and cleanses; diets that eliminate all but a few foods; some prepackaged foods; and food-replacement strategies. Feelings of deprivation or boredom may make people following these diets unsuccessful in the long run. Losing weight means changing oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s food and exercise plans over the long haul. - Eat in regular intervals. Researchers at the National Weight Control Registry offer that spacing food evenly throughout the day is the key

sonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s body ages, his or her metabolism will change. Men and women should revisit their recommended caloric intake every few years. In addition, men and women can routinely revisit their exercise routines to determine the efficacy of those routines and alter their workouts to reflect the physical changes their bodies are going through as they age. A personâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first step before dieting or attempting to lose weight should be to consult their physician, who can help men and women achieve their weight loss goals in a way thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s healthy and easy to maintain for years to come.

Mega-invite attracts many of state’s top swim teams Eagan places 6th in top division by Mike Shaughnessy SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Eagan, Rosemount, Lakeville South, Farmington and Lakeville North competed in probably the largest high school boys swimming and diving meet of the season, the Maroon and Gold Invitational at the University of Minnesota Aquatic Center. Fifty-eight teams from Minnesota, Wisconsin and North Dakota competed in four divisions in Saturday’s meet. Rosemount and Lakeville South had the top finishes of the local teams, placing fifth in their divisions.

Gold Division Eagan, which placed third in the 2016 state Class AA meet, competed Saturday in the Gold Division, which included several of the state’s topranked teams. The Wildcats scored 222.5 points to place sixth of 16 teams.

Minnetonka dominated the meet, scoring 660.5 points, almost 180 more than second-place Eden Prairie. Scoring was similar to True Team meets but not exactly the same. In Saturday’s meet, the top 20 finishers in individual events scored points. Schools could put as many as three teams in each relay, with each school’s top two teams scoring points. Eagan’s best finish was a third place by junior Quenton Steffen in the 100-yard breaststroke. Steffen was clocked in 1 minute, 0.32 seconds. Senior Jasper Appleton had fourth places in the 50 and 100 freestyle races. Appleton was timed in 21.82 seconds in the 50 and 47.88 in the 100.

AV’s Steveson dominates wrestling tourney Apple Valley was missing a couple of starters because of injuries but still had enough to finish fourth at the Cheesehead Invitational in Kaukauna, Wisconsin, last weekend. Gable Steveson, ranked first nationally at 285 pounds, dominated his weight class and three other Eagles wrestlers finished in the top five. Montini Catholic, an Illinois school ranked 27th nationally by InterMat Wrestling, scored 527 points to win the tournament. Mount Carmel, Illinois, was second with 507. Twenty-sixth-ranked Kasson Mantorville (481), 33rd-ranked Apple Valley (467) and 24th-ranked Lockport Township of Il-

linois (457) completed the top five. Steveson, a two-time state high school championand two-time Cadet World champion, ran his record to 23-0 with five victories in the Cheesehead Invitational. He won all five matches by fall, and only one of his opponents made it to the second period. He was on the mat for less than seven minutes in the five matches. Steveson pinned Blaze Beltran of Pewaukee, Wisconsin, in 2:36 in the final. It was the first loss of the season for Beltran, who took a 21-0 record into the match.

World Junior champs Team USA went 7-0 in the International Ice Hockey Federation World Junior Championships that concluded last week in Montreal. The U.S. won its final two games in shootouts, defeating Russia 4-3 in the semifinals and Canada 5-4 in the gold medal game. Burnsville High School graduate and St. Cloud State University defenseman Jack Ahcan played in all seven Team USA games, scoring one point and earning a plus-3 rating. Lakeville native Jake Oettinger, a goalie at Boston University, made the U.S. roster but did not play. Burnsville native Brock Boeser, a sophomore at North Dakota, was named to the preliminary roster but withdrew after having wrist surgery.

Coaching futures Coaches changing addresses in the off-season is a fact of college football life, and in the coming weeks it could affect a couple of people with local ties. Matt Simon, an All-State and Academic All-State receiver at Farmington High School in the early 2000s, was receivers coach for the Western Michigan team that went 13-1 last season and played in the Cotton Bowl on Jan. 2. As anybody with even a passing interest in University of Minnesota football knows by now, Western Michigan head coach P.J. Fleck was named to the same position with the Gophers last week. What that means for Simon isn’t clear yet. As of Wednesday, Western Michigan had not announced a replacement for Fleck. A Detroit News story referred to Simon as possibly the top internal candidate for the head coaching job. But in a list of potential candidates published by MLive, a media group that includes eight Michigan daily newspapers, Simon wasn’t mentioned. Simon, 31, played college football at Northern Illinois; former Minnesota head coach Jerry Kill was Northern Illinois coach in Simon’s senior year. He coached at Northern Illinois, the University of St. Thomas, and Rutgers before joining the Western Michigan staff in 2014. He has been described as having a personality similar to Fleck’s, and drew praise from Fleck for his recruiting ability. Fleck has spots to fill on his Minnesota staff, although he told WCCO Radio he hoped to have that completed by Thursday. He has hired Kirk Ciarrocca as offensive coordinator and Ed Warinner as offensive line coach. Ciarrocca was Fleck’s offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at Western Michigan, while Warinner coached at Ohio State last season. It’s likely that Lakeville native Jay Johnson, the Gophers’ offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach in 2016, is moving on. Johnson was offensive coordinator the previous five years at Louisiana, one of five colleges where he’s held that job.

HOTEL, from 1A

RENTAL, from 1A

of the Best Western since 2013. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A hotelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of moving parts.â&#x20AC;? The award, for hotels of at least 100 rooms, honors outstanding service that exceeds customer expectations, industry leadership and community involvement, said McElroy, now the president and CEO of Hospitality Minnesota, which includes the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lodging, restaurant and resort and campground associations. The Burnsville hotel is one of two Best Westerns in Minnesota with the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Premierâ&#x20AC;? branding, which denotes the finest amenities and service among the chainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s three tiers of properties. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a pretty tall order in terms of things like bathroom amenities, granite countertops, the standards for shower and tub enclosures, the standards for televisions and carpeting and finishings and furniture,â&#x20AC;? McElroy said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think of another hotel in the south metro thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s at that level or that standard,â&#x20AC;? he said. The principals of Blithe Hospitality Group are Ron and Jamie Dahlen. Jamie was catering manager at the Holiday Inn Burnsville when she hired Kremer in 2002. He later married the Dahlensâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; youngest daughter, Jessica. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I lead with a sales foot and a customer service foot,â&#x20AC;? Kremer said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done everything within the building. I started off as a bartender. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been a bar manager. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been a server. We really strive to take care of people. And I think one of the keys to anything like that is (organizational) culture.â&#x20AC;? After Blithe bought the property, it was renamed the Nicollet Inn for about six months before a deal with Best Western was sealed, Kremer said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Those were the wild days,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But it was also that stuff that brought us closer together in the culture. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the stuff you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t describe to people. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got people here who will do anything for a customer or anything

council, it has â&#x20AC;&#x153;closed and locked and slammedâ&#x20AC;? the door on apartment proposals, Council Member Dan Kealey said. But times â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and the council â&#x20AC;&#x201D; have changed. Newly sworn-in members Dan Gustafson and Cara Schulz said while campaigning last year the city should rethink its development policies and goals. In particular, Gustafson â&#x20AC;&#x201D; who also served from 2005-2012 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; tried unsuccessfully in his second term to muster a council majority to entertain upscale rental projects. Kealey credited Gustafson with raising the issue six years ago and changing his opinion. At the time, they were opposed by Mayor Elizabeth Kautz and Council Members Bill Coughlin and Mary Sherry. Sherry didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seek reelection, and Kautz and Coughlin joined the others Tuesday in welcoming Chase to pursue its plans beyond the concept stage. Gustafson hinted a project was afoot in a post-election November interview in Sun Thisweek. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a landmark decision today,â&#x20AC;? Kealey said. Burnsville has been â&#x20AC;&#x153;missing in action in the new, amenity-rich product for the last 15 years,â&#x20AC;? he said. City policy is to pursue a housing mix of 70 percent owner-occupied and 30 percent rental. Burnsville is now at 35 percent rental, compared with 25 percent in neighboring Apple Valley, Coughlin said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a blanket statement of more rental,â&#x20AC;? Kealey said of the proapartment push. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was specifically introducing a product we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a high-end, amenity-rich rental.â&#x20AC;? Said Schulz: â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have no problem with people changing how they live, what they want, and we need to change with that; we need to be open to that.â&#x20AC;? Kautz and Coughlin added cautionary notes. Some Burnsville apartments called â&#x20AC;&#x153;luxuryâ&#x20AC;? when they were built in the 1970s fell victim to disinvestment as ownership changed

Nathan Kremer, general manager of the Best Western Premier Nicollet Inn, started working at the hotel in 2002 when it was the Holiday Inn Burnsville. (Photo by John Gessner) for me, because weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen the bottom. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen when we only had 15 people in the hotel. We saw what people said about the place.â&#x20AC;? Still â&#x20AC;&#x153;at the top of its gameâ&#x20AC;? in 2002 and 2003, the property spent subsequent years in decline, leaving many corporate clients â&#x20AC;&#x153;with a bad taste in their mouth over the Holiday Inn name here in town,â&#x20AC;? Kremer said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why we had a lot of work to do,â&#x20AC;? he said. The Premier upgrades included cutting the number of rooms from 144 to 131, increasing the number of suites from four to 15 and making the top level an â&#x20AC;&#x153;executive floorâ&#x20AC;? for higher-end clients. Holiday Innâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s old restaurant, the Dakota County Steakhouse, was refashioned as Morganâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on Nicollet, and later â&#x20AC;&#x201D; with a consultantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s advice â&#x20AC;&#x201D; as Morganâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Farm to Table, which buys from a group of Minnesota farmers. Morganâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Farm to Table won the Bite of Burnsvilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Choice Award in 2015 and 2016 and the Biteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2015 Chefâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Choice Award. It won Favorite Food Item at the Taste of Lakeville in 2015 and 2016. While many in the community know the restaurant, Kremer said the hotelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s overnight clientele is largely corporate, culled in part from big firms with operations in Burnsville, including UTC Aerospace Systems, Bosch Communication Systems and Fron-

tier Communications. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The numbers show that about 80 percent of our business is a Sundayto-Thursday stay,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And that 80 percent tells you itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a corporate clientele.â&#x20AC;? As a board member of Experience Burnsville (formerly the Convention and Visitors Bureau), Kremer is well-versed in the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s entire lodging market across nine properties, from his to the economypriced hotels on Burnsville Parkway west of I-35W. Overall, the city has modestly priced lodging, Kremer said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Burnsville, as a whole, has one of the lowest ADRs â&#x20AC;&#x201D; average daily rates â&#x20AC;&#x201D; of the whole Twin Cities,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But the reason we have that is because of the mix of hotels that we have. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what our differentiator is, too â&#x20AC;&#x201D; weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re the only full-service hotel.â&#x20AC;? Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proud of his hotelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ratings with sometimes unforgiving online reviewers. Users of Trip Advisor have made the Best Western Premier Nicollet Inn the fifth-rated hotel among 240 in the metro area and the 11th-rated in Minnesota, according to Kremer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Trip Advisor is the biggest review site out there right now,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve stayed in the top five over the six years weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been open is a testament to what weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing.â&#x20AC;?

hands, Kautz said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We shut down one because of health issues to the community that was living there,â&#x20AC;? she said, referring to Country Village Apartments, whose rental license the council temporarily revoked in 2012 and whose problems with mold, pests and disrepair prompted a new city regimen of multifamily inspections. Chase is proposing a â&#x20AC;&#x153;beautiful product,â&#x20AC;? but â&#x20AC;&#x153;new stuff becomes old stuff,â&#x20AC;? Coughlin said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the risk.â&#x20AC;? Still, times change, said Kautz, calling for re-examination of the 70-30 policy the council adopted in 2000. The Great Recession shifted attitudes about the â&#x20AC;&#x153;American Dream,â&#x20AC;? and a backlash against development density â&#x20AC;&#x201D; such as in the Heart of the City â&#x20AC;&#x201D; has subsided, she said. Some of Burnsvilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s single-family homes have been converted to rentals in recent years, contributing to the 35 percent figure, she said. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no legal way to ensure an apartment building â&#x20AC;&#x153;is kept to a high-end luxury standard,â&#x20AC;? and the city canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t require an owner or future owner to set aside money for upkeep or remodeling, said a city staff report. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Once constructed, the best tool to ensure the building and units are kept up is the city rental licensing program and property maintenance codes,â&#x20AC;? the report said. Gustafson and Kealey said bringing new product to market is a way to pressure owners of older buildings to invest in them. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t force them as the government to do that,â&#x20AC;? said Gustafson, adding that 70 percent of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s apartments donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t meet current fire codes, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but competitors can force them.â&#x20AC;? Kautz praised Chase, which owns and manages its rental projects, for its maintenance practices. Most of its renters are

young professionals and couples, single college graduates and empty-nesters, with an average age in the mid-30s, the company says. Households of renters 50 and older have seen a pronounced jump as norms have shifted away from ownership, the company says. The average household income at The Flats of Cedar Grove, which opened in 2014 and is 94 percent occupied, is $95,030. Rents range from $1,200 to $2,400. In Burnsville Chase is proposing 76 one-bedroom units, 42 one-bedroom units with den, 37 two-bedroom units, three two-bedroom units with den and 11 three-bedroom units. Units range from 630 square feet to 1,400, with an average size of 916. Proposed amenities include a landscaped courtyard with a pool and fire pit, work-from-home spaces, a conference room, a fitness center, and a yoga studio and barre wall. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The amenities are larger. People get out of their units,â&#x20AC;? McElwain said. The project is proposed on land originally approved for 129 owner-occupied condominium units as part of the Nicollet Plaza planned unit development. The development contract will need to be amended to reflect the changes. The council must also approve sale of the property from KSH Development to Chase. The plan exceeds density standards for the Heart of the City. The proposal calls for 67 units per acre, compared with a maximum 57 under the areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s zoning standards. The condo plan called for 52 units per acre. Chase hopes to open the building in early fall of 2018. John Gessner can be reached at (952) 846-2031 or email john.gessner@ecm-inc.com.

She was born in Emporia, KS, and was raised in Manhattan, KS where she received her early education. Her father taught Agriculture classes at Manhattan High School, and she accompanied him and students to 4-H fairs all over the country. She became an expert judge of all farm animals including chickens, goats, cows, hogs, and horses. She developed a keen eye for animal structure and conformation. Before she was 12 years old, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d been to all 48 states continental U.S. Barbara was an accomplished cellist and played with the Manhattan Symphony Orchestra and the Kansas State University Orchestra.

SUN THISWEEK - Burnsville - Eagan January 13, 2017 15A

Thisweekend Story of cycling champion revisited in brothersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; book â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Major Taylorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; co-author to speak Jan. 17 at Robert Trail Library by Andrew Miller SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Though heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no longer a household name, Marshall â&#x20AC;&#x153;Majorâ&#x20AC;? Taylor was among the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most popular athletes in his heyday more than a century ago. Two Twin Cities area brothers, Conrad Kerber and Terry Kerber, have chronicled the life of the champion cyclist â&#x20AC;&#x201D; including the African-American athleteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s many encounters with discrimination in the predominantly white sport â&#x20AC;&#x201D; in their book â&#x20AC;&#x153;Major Taylor.â&#x20AC;? Terry Kerber is set to speak at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 17, at Rosemountâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Robert Trail Library as part of the ongoing â&#x20AC;&#x153;Meet the Authorâ&#x20AC;? series presented by the Rosemount Area Arts Council. Admission is free to the talk. He spoke with this newspaper recently about the genesis of the book and why he and his brother found the story of Taylor so compel-

ling. Q: Why was the story of Major Taylor one you wanted to tell? A: We Terry Kerber wanted to tell the Major Taylor story because when we delved into his history and that of early bicycle racing in general, 18901910, we couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe how much money those athletes made and how popular the sport was. It was a regular occurrence to have 30,000-50,000 fans pay to watch Taylor race. As early as 1899, when Taylor was only 21 years old, he was turning down more money for three months than Ty Cobb made in baseball 16 years later. In the years 1903-1904 Taylor made between $40,000 and $50,000. To put this in context, Babe Ruth did not sign a $20,000 contract until 1920. We were fascinated to

ed learn Taylor turned ms down enormous sums of money because as n a devout Christian n he refused to race on Sundays. Q: You co-au-h thored the book with your brother, Con-rad. How did you divide up the research and writing? A: My brother did most of the writing and I did most of the research. Since much of the content came to us from France and Germany, we had to have that material translated into English before we could even read it. It was quite a process, taking over five years to complete. Q: You and your brother are both senior partners at a Twin Cities investment firm. How did you come to write a book about a sports great of yesteryear?

A: Conrad and I both enjoy cycling, history and writing. One day while searching online for an antique bicycle I saw a sound-bite article on Taylor and shared

it with Conrad. We were both h hooked and obs sessed with how t story never this h the radar hit i the genre of in a all-time greatest a athlete stories. W hope to see We a major motion pi picture made on hi life someday his â&#x20AC;&#x201D; he certainly de deserves to be be better known. Q: Was com competitive cyclin considerably cling dif different in Major Tay Taylorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s era than it is today, in terms of equipment, trac or speeds? tracks, A: Competitive cycl during Taycycling lorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s era was a different sport. What feren comes to mind to most people is the Tour de France or long-distance, multi-day races with teams competing. In Taylorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s day, the sport was track racing on out-

door or indoor velodromes, which were found in most major cities worldwide. Taylor and the other cyclists were famous sprinters â&#x20AC;&#x201D; which meant short races from a half-mile to two miles in length. Traveling at 40plus mph on steeply banked tracks was fast, dangerous and deadly. Between 1890 and 1927 at least 47 racers were killed on velodrome tracks and many others seriously wounded and no longer able to earn their livelihood. Because Taylor was AfricanAmerican, there was much animosity toward him and his competitors often threatened his life â&#x20AC;&#x201D; literally. Q: Do you have any other book projects in the works? A: No other books in the works â&#x20AC;&#x201D; it would be very hard to find another subject as interesting as the life of Major Taylor. Email Andrew Miller at andrew.miller@ecm-inc.com.

Spotlight on classical Indian dance Local student among performers in â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Ritu-The Seasonsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; by Andrew Miller SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

An Eastview High School student is among a select group of talented young dancers who will be showcasing classical Indian dance at a performance later this month in St. Paul. Vibha Mavanji, an Apple Valley resident and 10th-grader at Eastview, is set to perform in â&#x20AC;&#x153;RituThe Seasonsâ&#x20AC;? on Jan. 28 at the Anne Simley Theater at Hamline University in St. Paul. Mavanji has been training in Indian classical dance for 11 years, since age 4. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The first aspect of the art that drew me in was the costume,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;While traveling in India, I visited quite a few relatives who were dancers themselves. One had a large portrait with this spectacular costume. At that moment, I knew I had to pursue the art just to wear that. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Over time my motivation gravitated from the costume to a passion for the art itself.â&#x20AC;?

Vibha Mavanji and other cast members went through three rounds of auditions for â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ritu-The Seasons.â&#x20AC;? The show, winner of a Knight Foundation grant, is presented by St. Paul-based Kala Vandanam Dance Company. (Photo submitted) â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ritu-The Seasons,â&#x20AC;? winner of a Knight Foundation grant, is a production by St. Paul-based Kala Vandanam Dance Company, where Mavanji has been training under instructor Suchitra Sairam for seven years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Vibha is a technically vibrant dancer, and is quite fearless in her expressional dance,â&#x20AC;? Sairam said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She has a palpable passion and reverence for the art, which shows both in her practice and performance.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ritu-The Seasonsâ&#x20AC;?

spotlights south Indian classical dance, and is inspired by the writing of 4th-century Sanskrit poet Kalidasa as well as Vivaldiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 18th-century work â&#x20AC;&#x153;Le Quattro Stagioni,â&#x20AC;? with the aim of evoking the beauty of each of the six Indian seasons through dance. Sairam said one goal of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ritu-The Seasonsâ&#x20AC;? is to give the cast of young dancers, ranging in age from 13 to 18, exposure to all aspects of staging a performance â&#x20AC;&#x201D; including production, fundraising
