After facing staunch opposition, Dakota County’s latest draft of its master plan for Lebanon Hills Regional Park received mixed reviews this week. The proposed plan, which was presented to the County Board on Nov. 12, includes 24.5 miles of unpaved trails, a new paved 6.5-mile connector trail that runs east and west and a 2-mile paved loop around Holland and McDonough lakes. The plan would keep all existing unpaved trails in Lebanon

The homeowners claimed harassment and selective enforcement by the city of Burnsville. The city claimed its actions against them were by-the-book measures to enforce city code. The homeowners won in court, but the city says it won’t be deterred in its efforts to safeguard the appearance of Burnsville neighborhoods. Criminal complaints accusing Scott and Mary Lundquist of two counts each of misdemeanor code violations were

dismissed Oct. 30 by Dakota County District Judge Arlene Perkkio. The complaints centered on the couple’s failure to properly screen or remove a yard-waste bin, an extension ladder and other items outside their home at 905 Kaymar Lane earlier this year. The city brought the charges after repeated warnings by a city inspector went unheeded. Perkkio ruled that the city’s use of zoning ordinances in the criminal case against the Lundquists was “overbroad and arbitrary.� The case comes at a time when Burnsville, at the City Council’s direction, is redoubling efforts to enforce code violations that officials say can diminish neighSee HOMEOWNERS, 11A

District 196 plans to build a new Early Learning and Adult Basic Education facility in Apple Valley has met resistance from residents. Plans call for a 54,076 square-foot, two-story building at 14445 Diamond Path near 144th Street that would house early childhood and adult education programs About 24 residents who live near the proposed site attended the Nov. 12 School Board meeting. Of those in attendance, a few expressed concerns about traffic and accused the district of leaving them in the dark. “We thought you were just looking at the lot to

see if it were feasible to use,� Apple Valley resident Steve Budnick said. “Now you’re digging. ... We’ve been blindsided.� Budnick said he is concerned 144th Street won’t be able to handle additional traffic that may be come with the project. Noting that the district began discussing the project in 2012, Board Member Rob Duchscher disagreed with residents’ contention that the district hasn’t been transparent. “We’ve done everything by the book and will try to help you feel easier about this project,� he said.

New developer plans hotel in the Heart of the City Previous developer pulls out by John Gessner SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

One developer’s exit hasn’t sunk prospects for a long-sought hotel in Burnsville’s Heart of the City. A new developer has stepped in to replace Akota Hospitality LLC, which pulled out of a proposed deal to buy 1.75 acres of city-owned property and build a Hilton Garden Inn. The new developer, NLD Holdings III LLC,

also plans to build a Hilton Garden Inn. The investor group has built hotels and retail centers in Minnesota and nationally, said Skip Nienhaus, Burnsville’s economic development coordinator. Under terms of a proposed purchase agreement and redevelopment contract with the city, the six-story, 100-unit hotel would include a restaurant, conference rooms, fitness center, indoor pool and 55 on-site parking stalls.

Current taxpayers would be on the hook for only a small portion of a proposed 5.4 percent increase in Burnsville’s city levy next year. The $1.49 million levy hike is covered mostly by the scheduled decertification of a County Road 42 tax-increment financing district. That will fully return properties in the district to the tax rolls, raising $1.14 million next year and covering 4.1 percent of the 5.4 percent. New construction will cover another $210,000, a 0.8 percent increase, leaving only $135,310 to come from existing tax base — a levy increase of 0.5 percent. Some City Council members were quick to point that out during a final budget overview at a Nov. 12 work session. Council action on the 2014 budget and levy is Dec. 3. “The good news is there’s a half-percent tax increase we’re voting on to existing taxpayers,� Council Member Dan Kealey said. “That’s great news,� added Mayor Elizabeth Kautz. City taxes on an average-valued home — valued at $184,600 in 2013 and $191,200 next year — would rise by an estimated $30, a 3.8 percent increase in the tax bill, according to the city. City taxes on $1 million in commercial property, whose average value has remained flat, would

fall by $85, a 0.6 percent decrease. Burnsville’s 5.4 percent levy is the highest proposed for 2014 among Dakota County cities. But without the 4 percent jump from the decertified TIF district, the remaining 1.4 percent increase would place Burnsville on the low end of the 11-city ranking, Financial Accounting Director Kelly Strey said. Most of the 5.4 percent increase would go to the city’s infrastructure trust fund, a reserve to help fund replacement and maintenance of streets, parks and other infrastructure. The council decided in 2009 to delay annual increases in the trust fund levy and pour all the funds from the 2013 TIF district certification into the fund. With the increase, taxes going to the infrastructure trust fund would total $3.1 million next year. The total levy of $28.99 million includes a $144,050 increase needed to maintain current city services and a $241,260 increase to replenish some funds that didn’t get increases during recent lean budget years. That sum includes a $50,000 tax increase, to $150,000, in a fund reserved for fighting what officials say is an inevitable infestation of emerald ash borer, a tree disease. A sizeable boost in taxes for the parks capital fund is tentatively scheduled for 2015. “For a long time, we have put parks in the wayback burner and did not fund the capital,� Kautz said. Now parks are in “desperate� need of rehabilitation, she said. Council members re-

viewed the status of several city funds, including the $356,000 youth center fund that supports the GARAGE teen center in Civic Center Park. The fund gets $74,000 in city funding annually, and its share of the city’s federal Community Development Block Grant funding is considered stable for the next five years. But other grants are ending, and new funding sources will have to be found or programs cut. “It is an unsustainable business model that has to change,� Kealey said. The city has long been working on a new youthcenter model that would include additional players, including the Boys and Girls Club, the Minnesota Valley YMCA, School District 191 and 360 Communities. The total proposed 2014 budget is around $85 million, compared with $80 million in 2013. The proposed budget includes a $35.6 million general fund and enterprise funds such as water/sanitary sewer.

Utility fees Proposed 2014 utility fee increases are 4.5 percent for water and sanitary sewer. No increases are proposed for stormwater, street lights or sidewalk snow plowing, though fee hikes are envisioned in future years.

Officials look to speed up bus transit in Eagan and take about 2 minutes off the 27-minute northbound trip and about 4 minutes off the 23-minute southbound trip. In the second option, the bus would stop in the center of the highway and riders would walk to and from the station on a skyway. The walk would be about 400 feet and 2.5 minutes each way. This option carries a larger price tag of $23 million, and would take about 4 minutes off the northbound trip and about 6 minutes off the southbound trip. A third option would build a ramp directly from northbound Cedar to the station but would only benefit northbound buses. Local officials from the Minnesota Department of Transportation, Dakota County and the Metropolitan Council are working together on a decision. “We hope to have a

Within six months of the launch the Cedar Avenue Red Line, officials are feeling the pressure to change the Eagan stop. Cedar Grove Station is part of the metro’s first limited-stop bus rapid transit service from Apple Valley to the Mall of America, and riders are frustrated by the slow stop. Buses must exit Highway 77 onto local streets to reach the station — located at 4035 Nicols Road — and then back-track to the highway. Officials knew the stop needed to be fixed but planned on doing so in the second phase of the $112 million project. Riders’ concerns have “made it a higher priority,� said Kristine Elwood, transit engineer for Dakota County. County officials are weighing whether to make

recommendation for a preferred option in the next few months,� Elwood said. Eagan city officials favored the location of the station in hopes it would spur development in the Cedar Grove Area, which is the site of a new outlet mall under construction. The Red Line connects to the Hiawatha light rail, the Blue Line, which terminates in downtown Minneapolis. Cedar Grove accounts for 18 percent of Red Line riders, and ridership from that station has slowly risen in recent years. Ridership from Cedar Grove has increased from 2,750 in 2008 to 5,750 in 2012. Average weekly ridership in September was 1,792. Weekly ridership is expected to soar in 2030 to between 11,250 to 19,200.

Opinion Northeast Burnsville crimes unsettling, but an anomaly by Eric Gieseke BURNSVILLE CHIEF OF POLICE

This week, our department – along with the Dakota County Attorney’s Office, Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension and a number of our partnering law enforcement agencies – met with a group of our residents and neighbors in Burnsville’s North River Hills area to discuss crime. As most of you know, this area has witnessed an unusual number of high-profile incidents in the past six months. Understandably so, these crimes have had an impact on the entire community. However, it has been specifically trying for the residents in this northeast section of Burnsville. For some, it has made them feel less secure. When people don’t feel safe in their community, it can be very unsettling – and quite frankly – very scary. I know this at both a personal and professional level. Growing up in Brooklyn Park, I woke up on more than one occasion in the middle of the night to a commotion outside of my bedroom window. Typically, the sounds were followed by a parade of red flashing police lights in front of

Guest Columnist

Eric Gieseke my neighbor’s (and best friend’s) house. Quite regularly, this would be followed by the officers physically escorting my friend’s father out of the house – after he had brutally beaten her mother. While these scenes were terrifying to me at such a young age, I took comfort in knowing that the police officers were there to help and to stop the violence. I was in awe of these officers who ran toward the calls for help, while the rest of us literally ran away. Despite those events of my childhood, my family maintained its deep roots in our community. We grew up, grew strong and broadened our perspective on life. I learned at an early age that terrible things can happen to very kind and gentle people without any significant explanations as to why. There is no doubt that those

early memories drew me to a law enforcement career. Nearly 25 years ago, my first call as a police officer brought me to Tamarack Lane in North River Hills. That area became my primary patrol area of choice for several years, and I have had a special connection to it and the people there ever since. To me, it is not much different from the neighborhood I grew up in. In fact, it is not much different from almost any suburban neighborhood spanning the metropolitan area. It is a great and stable place to live, filled with dedicated and committed residents, yet occasionally tested and challenged by reckless individuals who can create fear. Today, as police chief, I am still in awe of the Burnsville police officers who run toward the calls for help to protect our community each and every day. I have the utmost confidence and pride in these men and women who never back down, and never run away. That is the message I want to leave with our residents, families, friends, neighbors and businesses. The incidents we have experienced over the past six months are certainly not the standard –

they are an anomaly. Our 75 sworn officers and 18 civilian employees have been working hard, and will continue to work hard, to ensure that Burnsville remains a safe community. We are doing everything we can to help prevent crimes from happening – and putting criminals to justice when they do. However, we don’t do this alone. As a law enforcement agency, we work in partnership with other law enforcement professionals and members of the criminal justice system. We also work with you. We rely on the 60,000-plus eyes and ears of our community to report crimes and suspicious activities as they are occur. If you “See Something, Say Something,” and dial 9-1-1. Our community is not merely defined by any one reckless individual or any single event. We are, however, defined by our culture and history, our vision for the future and our joint commitment as a community to keep Burnsville safe. Eric Gieseke is chief of police in Burnsville.

Armful of Love’s true gift can transcend holidays by Anika Rychner SPECIAL TO SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

A woman recently interviewed to participate in 360 Communities Armful of Love, our holiday gift program that has been matching families in need with sponsors for over 40 years. With her 1-year-old baby at her side, she told us that her husband was a painter who found odd painting jobs to support the family, but with the cold weather and winter coming those jobs were becoming scarce. After completing the Armful of Love application, we explained that 360 Communities had many more programs that could help her family through difficult times. She was grateful to hear about the food shelf and we were quickly able to access enough diapers and wipes to get her through the rest of the week. When we gave them to her, the mother began to cry. She thanked us for the help and returned the next week for a 360 Communities assessment intake that connected her not only with food shelf services but with a wide variety of other programs and resources. This is just one example of how 360 Communities staff and volunteers en-

gage families to surround them with resources. Whether an individual or a family first engages with 360 Communities through a school, a hospital, child care, one of our domestic violence shelters, one of our five food shelves, or through Armful of Love, we are able to connect with them on a deeper level, many times uncovering other needs. Then the work of ensuring safe and healthy homes, promoting school success for their children, and ultimately encouraging self-sufficiency begins. Sometimes self-sufficiency can happen quickly when an individual or a family simply needs food or emergency services to bridge them through a difficult short-term period. In many cases, however, it takes more intensive support through multiple programs and resources to create a success story. This is where

360 Communities excels. By intervening early and often with families, we are able to make sure ensuing generations have a better chance at successful lives, free of food shelf dependency. According to Hunger Solutions, about 36 percent of Minnesota food shelf clients have at least one working adult in the home. For these folks, it’s not an unwillingness to work, it is low wages and reduced hours that make it difficult to achieve self-sufficiency. For others, there has been a job loss, a medical emergency, domestic violence, or a combination of barriers that place them in crisis. The reasons why people access food shelves are complex and varied, so it requires unique and innovative solutions to help them reach self-sustained success. With Armful of Love, 360 Communities makes it easy to access items like holiday gifts, clothing and food for families. By doing so, we invite a deeper conversation and build trust. Then we can provide far-reaching supports to help further stabilize any crisis and work with clients to achieve greater self-sufficiency. This year, Armful of Love staff and volunteers have already completed more than 1,100 interviews. Each one of these brief interviews for holiday gifts opens

the door to a meaningful conversation about barriers to success as well as an opportunity for a family to engage with 360 Communities. In one week alone, we had 22 Armful of Love families return for food and financial assistance intakes stemming from these interviews. The true gift of the Armful of Love program is the 360 Communities experience of support. When our partners in the community donate to a 360 Communities program, their donation dollars go much further to help a client because of the interconnectivity of our programs and resources. Eighty-two cents out of every dollar goes into direct service work. Our holistic approach ensures that every donation to our organization has far-reaching impacts designed to last for generations to come.

Identity theft for schools

the hook for it. But wait — there’s more. If the citizens don’t pay the loan back in the form of property taxes, they will have their homes seized. Families and their children will be turned out into the street. Do all those yes voters think this is Minnesota nice? Stealing from your neighbor should really be labeled a Minnesota vice. Besides the identity theft, the real crime is what we teach our children with these votes. We teach them that the don’t have to work hard to provide for their children. They just have to vote for stuff. That is the real education our children are receiving.

To the editor: I would like to report multiple instances of identify theft. You know, the crime where someone uses your information to take out loans, credit cards and other types of debt in your name. Last week, 7,998 Lakeville Area School District residents took out student loans (collectively known as a levy) in the names of all the people who didn’t vote for the HAL CRANMER loan. Now, all the people Lakeville who didn’t want the loan or voted against it are on

Vote helps all of District 194

CROP was a success

To the editor: All Lakeville Area School District residents should feel good about the vote supporting the school referendum on Nov. 5. I’m not in favor of blank checks for any category of government spending, but to me and many others I’ve spoken with, the district and the Lakeville School Board have worked hard to earn a reputation for exceptional financial stewardship. The vote for the levy matters to the whole community because a reputation for good schools, combined with recognized financial stewardship, will draw the sorts of families to Lakeville that we need in order to increase the tax base and raise the value of homes and properties. As a suburb, we compete with communities like Eden Prairie, Mahtomedi and others for families that care about where their kids go to school. I’ve personally spoken with people weighing those decisions. These families tend to increase economic vitality and social stability in their communities. It’s a virtuous economic cycle that shouldn’t be taken for granted. Some suburbs that haven’t gotten that mix right have suffered tremendously. The reputational risks were real for Lakeville after two failed levies in past years, and I woke up Nov. 6 feeling good about the community’s decision on this particular levy vote.

To the editor: I am writing to thank the communities of Burnsville, Apple Valley, Lakeville, and Savage for their enthusiastic response to the first annual South of the River CROP Hunger Walk on Oct. 13. CROP Hunger Walks are sponsored by Church World Service, an organization supported by some 35 American denominations. CROP Walk donations support the sustainable overseas relief projects of CWS and local food shelves. Our walk occurred within the cities of Burnsville and Savage. It was recognized with a proclamation by the city of Burnsville, and we received policing support from both Burnsville and Savage. Altogether, more than 200 walkers raised some $13,600, giving us the highest total for any CROP Hunger Walk in Minnesota in 2013. Twenty-five percent of that amount will be returned by CWS to 360 Communities and to the CAP Agency to benefit food shelves in Dakota and Scott counties. The Eagan and Lakeville Resource Centers was also present for our walk. We benefited from a $250 grant from the Southern Dakota-Scott County chapter of Thrivent Financial. We also received generous financial donations from many local businesses: Cub, Nelson’s Apple Farm, Rainbow, Sam’s Club, Target, Twin Cities Orthopedics, Valley Natural Foods, and Walmart. We were assisted on Walk Day by Boy Scout Troop 292 of Apple Valley and by Girl Scout Troop 12974 of Bloomington. The South of the River

Thankful to the community for supporting District 196 To the editor: Our children are the future and the education they receive is important in shaping their future. We are fortunate to live n School District 196, one of the state’s most desirable districts. We have some of the state’s best educators. Because of the levy referendum’s approval the district will be able to keep many fine teachers and continue to attract the best staff. Thanks to the voters, with pride, we can See LETTER, 5A


SUN THISWEEK - Burnsville - Eagan November 15, 2013 5A

Letters LETTER, from 4A continue to say we are the best place to live and raise a family. The levy referendum passed due largely to the dedicated efforts of Superintendent Jane Berenz and Jeff Solomon, district financial director. For close to four months, they were very busy meeting with residents, explaining the referendum and passing out materials. Berenz assisted UNITE 196, a group of more than 200 volunteers interested in continuing good education. The group was organized and led by Retno Saridewi, of Lakeville, and Charles McCready, of Apple Valley. A key member was Michael Groneberg, of Eagan. They organized the distribution of thousands of pages of literature and created UNITE196.org. Groneberg said our children need a world-class education to compete in the global economy. A group of 50 Key Communicators promoted the district and distributed materials. They will continue as an advisory group. Apple Valley was ranked 17th as one of the nation’s Best Places to Live by Money Magazine. This was possible through the city and schools’ reputation. Mayor Mary Hamman-Roland and Chamber of Commerce President Ed Kearney were very active in promoting the levy referendum’s passage. Please thank our superintendent, the fine people who run the district, School Board members and teachers who are dedi-

cated to serving us and our children. We are fortunate to enjoy the benefits of their service. What a great pleasure it has been to work with Berenz and the many groups that support District 196. When I was introduced to district staff members I discovered how much she is loved and respected. Thanks to the community, friends, neighbors, Realtors, business leaders, Rotary members, teachers and more who were with us in voting yes. BILL TSCHOHL Apple Valley Key Communicator

Veterans Day in Minnesota To the editor: On Monday, Nov. 11, we observed Veterans Day as both Minnesotans and Americans. It is a day we set aside each year to honor all of our veterans, living and dead. We honor all of those who have given dedicated and loyal service to their country so that as Minnesotans and Americans, we can live freely and safely in this great state and nation. This year, make sure that all veterans know that we appreciate the sacrifices they have made in their own lives in order to give us security in ours. In Minnesota, we celebrated and honored our veterans in a variety of ways. Throughout the state there were events at VFW posts, American Legion posts and other locations across the state. Some notable events in-

cluded: the Apple Valley High School’s fourth annual Veterans Day Recognition Assembly; the Hastings’ Minnesota Veterans Home Veterans Day program; the Veterans Day USA 5K at Como Park in St. Paul, which is in honor of military service members; and the Duluth Veterans Day March, in which members of the armed forces march through the city of Duluth following the same route every year since World War II. This Veterans Day we honored our family, our friends, and our neighbors. We thank all of the people who fought so that we didn’t have to. We honor their sacrifices, and we respect their bravery. I hope you took time on Monday, and every day, to say “thank you” to all who have served and to thank God for his continued blessings. SEN. DAN HALL R-Burnsville, District 56

Why ‘universal’ background checks won’t work To the editor: Thomas Craft, a candidate for the Democrat endorsement in the 2nd District, in a guest column used dated and inaccurate statistics to promote the expansion of background checks, through the FBI NICS process, to include all gun purchases. Craft claims 2 million NICS checks kept firearms from those who shouldn’t have them.

Per the FBI, in a typical year, 6 million NICS checks are done. Only 1.2 percent (73,000) of those transfers are initially denied. Out of 6 million checks 62 (.0009 percent) cases are referred for prosecution with 13 people found guilty. Those caught illegally trying to buy a firearm via the NICS system are virtually never prosecuted. That’s hardly a deterrent for criminals intent on illegally obtaining a firearm. Craft promotes a tired and inaccurate deception by depicting the “gun show/internet loophole” as some wide-open illegal gun bazaar. The truth is 98 percent of gun show and online firearm purchases are subject to NICS checks. The remaining 2 percent are private sales between individuals. According to the ATF, 73 percent of guns used in crimes are obtained through straw purchases and theft, not through private sales. According to the U.S. Department of Justice, 70.2 percent of released prisoners with the highest re-arrest rates are those that had already been imprisoned for possessing, using, or selling illegal weapons. Recently, at Nina’s Grill in Burnsville, the alleged shooter who killed another patron is a convicted felon with multiple robbery and gun charges. These criminals do not, nor will they be subject to a “universal” background check. He obtained his firearm illegally. Recent studies by PEW Research and the Department of Justice show over

the past 20 years, after the expiration of the ineffectual “assault weapon” ban and in a legislative climate that has been largely pro second amendment, gun homicide is down 39-49 percent and total violent crime is down 79 percent. Yet 72 percent of Americans think gun crime is the same or higher than 20 year ago. We want to see a further reduction in the plummeting rate of gun crime. Aggressively enforce current laws instead of looking the other way and stoprereleasing chronically recidivist criminals like the Nina’s Grill shooter back into society to re-offend. While expanding background checks sounds like “common sense,” it is ineffectual and simply political expedience to convince a constituency that something/anything is being done to curb gun violence.

Immigrants valuable assets to the economy

straightforward: • Immigrants are younger than native Minnesotans: They fill jobs vacated by retiring workers, and pay taxes that provide needed state and local revenues. • As consumers, immigrants in Minnesota have an estimated $659 billion in lifetime earnings and annual purchasing power of $5 billion. Immigration slows population decline in rural towns and struggling urban neighborhoods, and contributes to the growth of housing values. • Immigrants comprise 7 percent of the state’s population but 9 percent of the workforce. In six industry sectors and 17 occupations, both higher- and lower-skilled, immigrants comprise more than one quarter of the workforce. • Immigrants pay an estimated $793 million in state and local taxes annually. • Six percent of the state’s business owners are immigrants. • Through networks and cultural assets, immigrants strengthen Minnesota’s global connections and make the state more attractive to global investors, businesses and talent. Second District candidate Mike Obermueller agrees with the approach taken by the Chamber of Commerce. On the other hand, Kline throws immigrants out of his office and has them arrested. Who should you vote for?

To the editor: Our immigration system is broken, and U.S. Rep. John Kline, R-Burnsville, bears responsibility for not fixing it. Contrary to Mr. Kline, even the Minnesota Chamber of Commerce supports immigration reform, including a pathway to citizenship. The chamber recently released its report called the Economic Contributions of Immigrants in Min- RON GOLDSER nesota. Their rationale, Eagan quoted from the report, is

County assessor provides homestead property tax info All new property owners (or qualified relatives) who changed residences during the past year and use the residence for homestead purposes must apply for homestead status with their county assessor by Dec. 15. Property owners or qualified relatives – parent, step-parent,

child, step-child, grandparent, grandchild, brother, sister, uncle, aunt, nephew or niece, by blood or marriage – who want to classify property as homestead that was not classified as homestead in the past must apply with the Dakota County Assessor’s Office to receive homestead for property

taxes payable in 2014. Once the homestead classification has been granted, no further applications are necessary, unless requested by the county assessor. Only new applicants must file if they have not already done so. Application forms can be completed online by visiting www.

dakotacounty.us and searching homestead or calling Dakota County Assessing Services at 651-438-4200. Applications can also be completed in person at the Western Service Center, 14955 Galaxie Ave., Apple Valley. Property owners who sell their home, move or no longer qualify

for the homestead classification are required to notify the county assessor within 30 days of the homestead’s change in status. Failure to do so is punishable by recalculation of tax as non-homestead, in addition to a penalty equal to 100 percent of the homestead benefits.

Education Kindergarten, first grade enrollment numbers healthy District 191 predicts end to long enrollment slide by John Gessner SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

This year’s fall enrollment report in School District 191 shows more of the same — a racially and economically diverse district nearing the end of years of enrollment decline. But eye-catching blips emerged last year and this year — high kindergarten enrollments that began when the district became one of Minnesota’s first to offer free full-day kindergarten. The district’s Oct. 1 “seat count� shows kindergarten and first-grade enrollments outpacing all grade levels except 12. The count shows 804 kindergartners and 819 first-graders.

The high first-grade numbers show “we did retain a number of the students we pulled in last year,� Lisa Rider, executive director of business services, told the School Board Nov. 7. Kindergarten enrollment jumped in 2012-13 to a year-end 825 students, compared with only 699 the previous year. The year-end projection for 2013-14 is 802, and Rider is projecting kindergarten enrollment to stay at 800 or higher for several years to come. “Those are the biggest numbers we’ve had in 10 years,� Board Member Robert VandenBoom said of the boomlet in kindergarten and first grade. “That’s exciting.� The Oct. 1 count

shows 9,405 students in grades K-12, 73 fewer than last October and well below the 11,467 in 1999-2000. Year-end enrollment for 2013-14 is projected at 9,357. The district predicts the enrollment drain will end in 2014-15, with a year-end projection of 9,303 students followed by small increases in the ensuing years. The enrollment report includes comparisons with 2002-03 that show how much district demographics have changed. The district had 78 percent white students 11 years ago, compared with 53 percent today. Black and Hispanic students are the largest minority groups, at 22 percent and 15 percent, respectively.

Half of this year’s elementary students qualify for free or reduced-price school meals, compared with 21 percent in 200203. Thirty-seven percent of secondary students qualify this year, compared with 15 percent in 2002-03. The ethnicity and meal numbers “define what we are as a school district and some of the work we’ve been putting forward the last four or five years, and other work that we need to continue to do,� Board Member Ron Hill said. Rider said she doesn’t expect the number of free-or-reduced students to change much in coming years, based on the “life cycle� of the communities that comprise

the district.

More students leave than enter

captured 641 of those students, slightly more than half, in 2012-13. “Proximity, personal choice and perception� are factors that drive school choice, Superintendent Joe Gothard said. Convenience is likely a factor for many who leave, VandenBoom said, citing his own Eagan neighborhood. Some board members said they want more information about why those families choose other schools. “It would be interesting to see what the outenrollment ethnicity is,� Hill said. “I have some speculation on it.�

The report shows more district students crossing boundaries to attend school elsewhere than other students leaving their home districts to attend 191. That’s been the case each of the last five years, with the number of students leaving rising from 1,136 in 2011-12 to 1,252 in 2012-13. The number of outsiders entering the district has also risen, from 564 in 2011-12 to 622 in 201213.

District 196 enrollment expected to rise slightly by Jessica Harper SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

For the first time in nearly a decade, Rosemount-Apple ValleyEagan schools may see a slight uptick in enrollment next school year.

The increase is expected to encompass all levels, with district high schools seeing the greatest rise by Oct. 1, 2014. Enrollment in District 196 high schools is expected to reach 7,836 students, which is an increase of 75 students, or 0.97 percent.

Elementary school enrollment is projected to reach 11,653 students, which is an increase of 26 students (0.22 percent). Middle school enrollment is expected to increase by one student with a total enrollment of 5,996 students.

Kim Reis, student information supervisor for District 196, credits the recent turnaround to cyclical trends and a recent increase in housing developments within in the district. District officials determine enrollment pro-

jections by examining housing trends, existing enrollment numbers and census data. K-12 enrollment is expected to reach 26,040 next year. Total enrollment, which includes early childhood and adult basic education programs, is ex-

pected to increase by 24 students (0.10 percent). Enrollment in District 196 has fallen each year since 2006, but has slowly started to stabilize.

Janis Stoven, adult services coordinator for District 196 Community Education, was awarded the Regional Community Educator of Excellence Award at the Minnesota Community Education Association’s Annual Conference held Oct. 30 to Nov. 1 at the Earle Brown Center in Brooklyn Center. MCEA recognizes, thanks and celebrates the outstanding contributions made by practitioners and supporters of community education from across Minnesota. Stoven began her

journey with community education in 1986 when District 196 received a grant to investigate and initiate older adult programming. Through that grant, she started the Apple Valley Senior Group – which began with eight members and continues today with thousands of participants each year – and was hired to lead senior adult programming and partnerships. She also has led the district’s United Way campaign and Back to School Supplies project.

measures to help raise funds for science lab supplies, student workbooks, updated computers, improvement to the school’s library and after-school clubs. She has volunteered to swim with Mall of America’s SeaLife’s sharks on Give to the Max Day, Nov. 14. “The school could use an infusion of $62,000 for the items on our priority list and if we were allowed to partake in the dollars raised by the recent levy, we could meet our needs with less than 11 percent of our student population,� said LevyMaguire. The school has received a clean audit of its financials in each of its nine years of operation. It maintains a healthy fund balance which acts as a cushion against unanticipated expenditures, funding deficiencies and state aid holdbacks.

Scores show some narrowing of achievement gap by Howard Lestrud SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

National test results released Thursday, Nov. 7, revealed that Minnesota fourth-grade students recorded the best math scores in the country. These results were compiled by the National Assessment of Education Progress, otherwise known as The Nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Report Card. The report is the largest nationally representative continuing evaluation of the condition of education in the United States. It informs the public about what Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s students know and can do in various subject areas and compares achievement data among states and various student demographic groups. Gov. Mark Dayton and Minnesota Department of Education Commissioner Brenda Cassellius said at a Capitol press conference there was progress in narrowing Minnesotaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s achievement gap between white students and students of color. Dayton, in his first in public appearance since he had additional hip surgery two weeks ago, said Minnesota is making important progress in narrowing the achievement gap; â&#x20AC;&#x153;however, the need for continued improvement is clearly indicated.â&#x20AC;? Dayton said Minnesota African American fourth-graders scored fourth highest in the country in math. Minnesota was 22nd in 2011. In reading, Minnesota was 10th best in 2013, moving up from 22nd two years ago. The gaps

in reading between white students and African American and Spanish students were reduced by 10 test points, about a 25 percent improvement since 2009. Minnesota eighthgraders ranked fifth best in math and 11th best in reading, posting Minnesotaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best scores ever. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Those results tell me,â&#x20AC;? Dayton said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;that we have made some important progress; however, we still have much more work ahead of us.â&#x20AC;? Dayton said he believed that the new initiatives he proposed and the Legislature approved will show even more positive results in the years ahead. He thanked Minnesotans who approved almost 90 percent of the school referendums last Tuesday, a record high number. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That money, I can assure you, will be wellspent,â&#x20AC;? Dayton said. Cassellius pointed to several initiatives that contributed to this success, including significant investments in early education, the new â&#x20AC;&#x153;Read Well by Third Gradeâ&#x20AC;? law that includes a requirement for every district to create a literacy plan, Minnesotaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s waiver from the federal No Child Left Behind law, and more rigorous reading and math standards. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have always known we have great teachers,â&#x20AC;? Cassellius said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now we are building toolkits and taking the steps we need to make sure that every Minnesota child has what it takes to be successful. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have set real high standards the past 10

years, and each year it gets better and better.â&#x20AC;? Cassellius said Minnesota didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see as much progress at eighth grade. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We know we have had some difficult times the last 10 years, borrowing from schools, cutting programs and having higher class sizes but we have doubled down in our eighth-grade efforts, making sure kids can be better prepared,â&#x20AC;? Cassellius said. She emphasized those extra efforts, combined with leadership and great teaching, are the things that have made a great difference in showing progress. Cassellius said Minnesota saw its black-white gap cut in half where it used to be the seventh largest gap. Now, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the 13th largest gap. Cassellius said Minnesota still sees struggles with gaps in the eighth grade; â&#x20AC;&#x153;however, we know if we continue to work on our secondary program and to make sure we are teaching reading and making sure that all kids are reading well at third grade or earlier, our eighth-graders will achieve.â&#x20AC;? The achievement gap between white and African American eighthgraders in reading is the seventh largest in the nation, while in math the gap between those students is fourth largest. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are really encouraged by the data today,â&#x20AC;? Cassellius said. House Minority Leader Kurt Daudt, RCrown, speaking to media later, said Republicans are committed to improving the education of Minnesota students, and â&#x20AC;&#x153;we want to make

)UHH 9HLQ 6FUHHQLQJ

sure we put our students first.â&#x20AC;? Daudt pointed to policies enacted when Republicans ran the Legislature, such as focusing on third-graders reading at grade level. Daudt said Republican concerns are â&#x20AC;&#x153;by getting rid of the graduation standard tests and lowering accountability and lowering standards for Minnesota students, we arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t going to continue seeing improvement in education.â&#x20AC;?

Local man survived Nazi imprisonment to build legacy Sidney Manders dies of illness by Laura Adelmann SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Sidney Manders was 20 years old when his plane was shot down over Germany on Nov. 5, 1944. Seven of the 10-member crew he was with became prisoners of war near the end of Hitlerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rule over Germany, a devastating experience he talked little about before his unexpected death Oct. 27. Manders, 89, was a St. Paul native who joined the Air Force and was a gunner aboard the B-17 when it was struck by anti-aircraft fire, said crew mate Merlin Dyvig, 89, of Iowa. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The airplane caught

so much more about the Air Force than we did,â&#x20AC;? Dyvig said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They were trying to find out what the Americans were planning to do.â&#x20AC;? Manders endured many forms of torture, relying on his strong faith to survive; he returned to the states in April 1945, weighing just 90 pounds. He was awarded the Purple Heart and Bronze Star and overcame the physical pain and torturous treatment to prove wrong doctors who, son Terry Manders said, told him he would never walk again. Sidney Manders went on to start a gas station in St. Paul before founding Manders Diesel Repair, a successful Mack truck dealership in Lakeville. He and wife Dee, whom he had met on a blind date

after returning home and proposed to six months later, were married 64 years and raised four children: Dusty, Wendy, Terry and Jody. The family has pledged to keep his Mack dealership operating under the same principles of integrity, honor and honesty upon which Manders founded it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He taught us you work for what you get,â&#x20AC;? Terry Manders said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My first vehicle, I had to buy it. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d do anything for you, but he wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just give you things. â&#x20AC;Ś He taught us and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s how my kids are now, because of that good work ethic.â&#x20AC;? Terry Manders said his father was a man of his word whom customers knew always followed through with his promises, earning customersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; re-

spect, and ultimately, their friendship. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That is our reputation, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re still going strong,â&#x20AC;? Terry Manders said. Sorensen said her father was a strong Christian, a Minnesota Vikings fan and man who loved his family and cherished the times they spent together, especially at their lake home. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was the best father you could ever have,â&#x20AC;? Sorensen said. Manders died after breaking his hip and contracting pneumonia; services were held Friday, Nov. 1, at St. Johnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lutheran Church in Lakeville.

Neighbor saves home from fire Mark Keppel has a history of heroic actions by Laura Adelmann SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

A Lakeville manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s prompt actions saved his neighborâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home from almost certain destruction on Wednesday, Nov. 6. The incident started when a panicked teenage neighbor ran out of the Innsbrook Drive home next to Mark Keppel yelling that his house was on fire. Keppel sprang into action. As 911 was called, Keppel, 59, grabbed his fire extinguisher and ran into the home already so thick with smoke he said he had to duck down to breathe. Keppel saw flames had engulfed the stove and microwave and were melting the countertop. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The whole wall was on fire,â&#x20AC;? Keppel said. After extinguishing about half of the flames, Keppel said he had to step

out onto the deck to get some fresh air. He returned, located a wooden stick in the tracks to the sliding glass door and used it to open cupboards to extinguish flames inside. Within 10 minutes, Keppel had the fire out, just as Lakeville firefighters and first responders were arriving on the scene. Lakeville Fire Chief Mike Meyer credited Keppel for saving his neighborâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It would have been obviously a much worse scenario if he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t come in with an extinguisher,â&#x20AC;? Meyer said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It would have involved the whole kitchen.â&#x20AC;? He said the boy had been heating oil for french fries, left it unattended and returned to find it on fire. Meyer estimated the home suffered about

$10,000 in smoke damages. While he advised people to keep fire extinguishers close to the kitchen, and credited Keppel for saving the home, he added he does not suggest anyone enter a burning building. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I commend what he did,â&#x20AC;? Meyer said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He saved the neighborâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s house from further damage, but the flip side of that is you have to be careful when doing that kind of thing.â&#x20AC;? Betty Keppel said she was proud of her husbandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s actions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are not a lot of people who would literally run into a burning house to help someone,â&#x20AC;? she said. This was not the first time Mark Keppel has performed life-saving actions. Long ago, he also used a fire extinguisher to put out a fire in their own

home, and Betty Keppel said he performed the Heimlich maneuver on their 12-year-old daughter Madison when she was a year old to save her from choking on a coin. Two weeks later, he saved another toddler who was choking on a hot dog and had turned blue. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always been my hero,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just more of one.â&#x20AC;?

News Briefs Area man dies in Itasca County An Apple Valley man was killed and three people were seriously injured Nov. 8 in a two-vehicle collision in Itasca County. According to the Minnesota State Patrol, Aeron E. Hammargren, 38, was traveling west on Highway 2 at about 2:10 p.m. when an eastbound Ford Fusion lost control and crossed the center line; Hammargrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ford Mustang struck the side of the Fusion, left the

roadway and came to rest in the north ditch. Hammargren was pronounced dead, and his two passengers â&#x20AC;&#x201C; his son and daughter, 13-year-old Justis E. Hammargren and 12-year-old Choloe M. Hammargren, both of Apple Valley â&#x20AC;&#x201C; were transported to St. Maryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Medical Center in Duluth with serious injuries, the State Patrol said. The driver of the Ford Fusion â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Alice M.

Tree of Hope donations accepted in Lakeville Burnsville High School cast members rehearsed the fall musical, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Urinetown,â&#x20AC;? which opens Nov. 14 in the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s newly renovated Mraz Center for the Performing Arts. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Urinetownâ&#x20AC;? depicts a Gotham-like city, where a terrible water shortage caused by a 20-year drought has led to a government ban on private toilets. The wickedly greedy Mr. Cladwell rules a single monopolistic corporation, UGC, which charges the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s residents exorbitant prices to use public amenities. There enters young Bobby Strong, a lowly restroom attendant, who incites a massive uprising against the Cladwell empire, only to find love with Cladwellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s daughter, Hope. Directed by Randy Day, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Urinetownâ&#x20AC;? runs Nov. 14-16 and 21-23 at 7:30 p.m. and Nov. 17 at 3 p.m. Tickets are $10 for adults, $9 for seniors and $8 for students.

She enjoys the challenges of general dentistry including implant restorations, extractions, root canals, dentures and partials, children and cosmetic work. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My passion is to make people feel good about themselves, and what better way to do that then to give them conď&#x20AC; dence in their smile. A healthy mouth leads to more smiles and in turn conď&#x20AC; dence in your other daily activities.â&#x20AC;? Dr. Louieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s team includes an exceptional group of individuals who have worked together for the last 5-8 years. Her team works side by side to make your experience in the dental ofď&#x20AC; ce as pleasant as possible. The team wants to teach you how to take good care of your teeth to prevent unnecessary major dental work in the future. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Prevention is always the key to retaining your natural teeth as you age.â&#x20AC;? Being able to work in a multi-specialty practice group is important to Dr. Louie but so is her life outside the ofď&#x20AC; ce. She enjoys spending time with her husband Tom, sons Ethan and Grant and daughter Taylor Mei. Spending time with her family outdoors, gardening and reading round out her interests. Dr. Louie has seen areas of underserved populations where dental care is not readily available. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is fortunate that we have the opportunity to access preventative dental care. People should not fear going to the dentist. They should fear the outcome of not being able to go. My team offers a ď&#x20AC;&#x201A;exible schedule including evenings and Saturday hours.â&#x20AC;?

HOMEOWNERS, from 1A

borhood appeal. This spring, the city began a program of streetview, â&#x20AC;&#x153;proactiveâ&#x20AC;? inspections that over three years will canvass the entire city â&#x20AC;&#x201D; including all single-family, rental and business properties â&#x20AC;&#x201D; for code violations. The city also began a system of reinspection fees for repeat follow-up visits to properties with unremedied violations. At a stormy public hearing Sept. 3 several property owners â&#x20AC;&#x201D; including the Lundquists â&#x20AC;&#x201D; contested their fees. The Lundquistsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; three reinspection fees of $110, $110 and $180 were put on hold, pending the outcome of the criminal case, which the city initiated in June, Scott Lundquist said. An attorney who practices in Lakeville, Scott Lundquist represented the couple in court and filed for dismissal of the misdemeanor charges. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve lived in Burnsville since 1981. I basically grew up out there,â&#x20AC;? Lundquist said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was embarrassed by this whole event and very annoyed. It thought it was a classic example of government getting too in-

volved in our everyday life.â&#x20AC;? After losing in court, the city will review its ordinance provisions, enforcement procedures and communications with residents about code violations, City Attorney Joel Jamnik said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I will not recommend that we discontinue our enforcement procedures,â&#x20AC;? Jamnik said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We tell people that your (garbage or recycling bin) needs to be inside or screened from view. Most people can understand what that means.â&#x20AC;? Scott Lundquist said he never kept his yard-waste bin in the garage because â&#x20AC;&#x153;it stinks.â&#x20AC;? He said he kept it behind a shrub tree by the side of the house, but, at one point, it got blown out into the yard. It was first seen by a city inspector Jan. 30. The first letter, from inspector Ted Oakland, was sent to the Lundquists Feb. 1. A city court filing in the criminal case includes four letters sent to the couple. Three also cite outdoor storage of the extension ladder, which Lundquist said came from his motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s house after she moved, and other items, including a parts washer cited in one letter. He said he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t

have a place for the ladder in the garage (where it is now stored) and set it alongside the house next to a parked car. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you knew it was there, or if you looked at our house with binoculars, you could see this ladder,â&#x20AC;? Lundquist said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you knew it was there, you could probably keep picking it out.â&#x20AC;? The yard-waste bin was visible to the inspector from the street on some visits and not on others, said Lundquist, who continues to keep it outside. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At some point the letters got to the point of harassing us,â&#x20AC;? he said. The violations were cited during a period of multiple snowstorms, when fixing the problems would have been a challenge, Lundquist said. Plus, he and his wife were away from home much of the time, he said. Lundquist maintains the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s property-related ordinance provisions are sometimes contradictory and prone to selective use and interpretation. He says the ordinance provisions donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t give â&#x20AC;&#x153;fair warningâ&#x20AC;? of criminal violation. He and his wife were charged under two provi-

sions. One requires garbage and recycling containers kept outdoors to be screened from view by fencing, shrubs or other means of â&#x20AC;&#x153;opaque screening,â&#x20AC;? according to letters sent to the Lundquists by Oakland. The other prohibits exterior storage, with exceptions such as properly stored recreational vehicles and patio or lawn furniture, according to the letters. Burnsville property owners â&#x20AC;&#x153;store hoses outside, bins, balls, hockey nets, portable basketball hoops,â&#x20AC;? Lundquist said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All kinds of exterior storage goes on in the city of Burnsville.â&#x20AC;? The city itself â&#x20AC;&#x153;stores pallets, garbage bins, waste bins, covered and uncovered,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They store canoes outside at Lake Alimagnet and Lac Lavon.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Generally speaking,â&#x20AC;? said City Attorney Jamnik, â&#x20AC;&#x153;the specific governs the general. If you have a specific rule regarding garbage collection, that should be subject to interpretation or application even if you have something else that deals with outdoor storage.â&#x20AC;? Judge Perkkio ruled that city ordinance is â&#x20AC;&#x153;so indefinite as to encourage arbi-

trary and discriminatory enforcement.â&#x20AC;? She ruled that the â&#x20AC;&#x153;opaque screeningâ&#x20AC;? provision is â&#x20AC;&#x153;vague and contradicts other code sections.â&#x20AC;? She noted that Mary Lundquist provided photos of other properties, including city-owned properties, whose own noncompliance with city code shows â&#x20AC;&#x153;the inspectorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s arbitrary enforcement of the zoning code.â&#x20AC;? The city maintained that some of the photos came from zoning districts other than the one governing the Lundquistâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s property and that enforcement of code violations is a lengthy process with various stages. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The mere existence of unscreened waste containers in the city of Burnsville does not satisfy the defendantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s burden of proving that the enforcement of the code against the defendant is arbitrary and capricious,â&#x20AC;? said a city brief contesting the Lundquistsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; motion to dismiss the charges. Most homeowners who have been cited for improperly stored garbage or recycling bins understand and accept the action against them, Jamnik said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had the major-

ity of residents comply with that,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And if they havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t complied with it, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve received a notice from protective inspection services and worked with the code enforcement officers to figure out what would satisfy that standard. And it hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been a problem in 98 percent of cases.â&#x20AC;? Council Member Mary Sherry said complaints about neighborhood appearance were the ones she heard most when campaigning last summer for a second term. And complaints about unscreened garbage containers top the list, said Sherry, a vocal proponent of the crackdown on code violations. Putting the entire city on an inspection cycle ensures that â&#x20AC;&#x153;nobody is being singled out,â&#x20AC;? she said. The city will also inspect properties in response to specific complaints. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had far more people compliment the council and city staff for addressing the issue of deteriorating properties and appearance in this community than I have had complaints about the fact that we were enforcing these codes,â&#x20AC;? she said.

Lakeville veterinarian treats patients differently Cathy Lund blends East, West to help pets heal by Laura Adelmann SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Lakeville veterinarian Cathy Lund used to be suspicious when patients would show her a bag of herbs another practitioner prescribed for their pet. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was worried it might harm patients,â&#x20AC;? Lund said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Before I knew about these techniques, I assumed they were dangerous or didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t work.â&#x20AC;? Now, she prescribes pet patients Chinese herbs herself, having quit her job on staff at Southfork Animal Hospital (although she still rents space there) to open her own practice that blends Eastern and Western medicine to treat pets. Her interest in Eastern medicine was spurred after witnessing dramatic improvements humans experienced after visiting a holistic doctor. She said Eastern techniques have been successful in treating behavioral problems, and many people with allergies have found relief in the plantbased remedies provided by holistic practitioners whose treatment differs greatly from Western medicine.

Soldier gets Purple Heart â&#x20AC;&#x201C; at last Kenneth Tinsley was wounded in Vietnam in 1968 by Andrew Miller SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

It was a long time coming, but Kenneth Tinsley finally received his Purple Heart. More than four decades after he was wounded in a rocket attack in Vietnam while serving with the Armyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 1st Infantry Division, Tinsley was awarded the Purple Heart at a ceremony Monday at the Apple Valley American Legion. The Purple Heart is a combat decoration given to those wounded or killed while serving with the U.S. military. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This award represents true sacrifice and goes

to our most valiant warriors,â&#x20AC;? said Maj. Kristen Auge, deputy director of public affairs for the Minnesota National Guard, who served as master of ceremonies at the Monday presentation. As for the long delay between being wounded and receiving the combat decoration, Tinsley, of Apple Valley, attributed it to a simple oversight. Ten days after the April 1968 rocket attack, he left Vietnam because his tour of duty was complete, and understandably he was more focused on returning home than inquiring into the status of his Purple Heart.

There the matter stood until a few years ago, when a friend with a military organization encouraged Tinsley to fill out the paperwork to receive the award. The large crowd in attendance in the American Legion hall for the ceremony included Tinsleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wife, Karen, and more than a dozen of his extended family members. Presenting the award was Chuck Jones, Minnesota Department Commander for the Military Order of the Purple Heart. Email Andrew Miller at andrew.miller@ecm-inc.com.

SUN THISWEEK - Burnsville - Eagan November 15, 2013 13A

Sports Wildcats have flair for the dramatic Eagan holds off Delano for its first state volleyball championship in 10 years by Mike Shaughnessy SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Eagan’s volleyball players left Xcel Energy Center on Saturday night satisfied they had overcome every challenge they faced until there were no more to conquer. First, the Wildcats had to prove they were a legitimate state championship contender at the Eagle Invitational in September, a tournament that draws a flock of highly ranked teams. They won it for the first time in school history. Then they had to face Lakeville North in the Class 3A, Section 3 championship match after losing to North in the section final the last two years. Eagan beat the Panthers in four sets. In the state semifinals, they faced Eden Prairie, a team that had beaten then late in the regular season. Eagan won in four sets. Finally, the top-seeded Wildcats had to deal with upset-minded Delano, which pushed them to the limit in a five-set state final before they could claim the school’s first state volleyball championship trophy in 10 years. “The whole season, I had so much hope and faith in this team,” Eagan senior Kelly Madison said following the Wildcats’ 2513, 27-29, 26-24, 21-25, 15-12 victory in the Class 3A final. “When we got here, I definitely thought we were prepared for any situation.” After a shaky first game, Delano gave Eagan all sorts of trouble with its balance offense and wellplaced tips. “They were really good,” said Eagan senior Taylr McNeil, who had 36 kills and 20 digs in the championship match. “They served hard, played good defense. I was impressed.” Eagan capped a 30-2 season with three victories

In addition to winning tournaments in Shakopee, Apple Valley and Chaska, the Wildcats avenged both of their regular-season losses. After losing to Lakeville North in a South Suburban Conference match, the Wildcats beat the Panthers in four sets in the Section 3 final. Eden Prairie defeated Eagan late in the regular season but the Wildcats won the rematch 25-21, 19-25, 25-17, 25-13 in the Class 3A semifinals last Friday. Eagan coach Kathy Gillen-Melville, who has coached five Eagan teams to state championships, said this year’s squad showed remarkable composure in close matches. “It’s what they had to do,” she said. “Winning the Apple Valley tournament was important to us because we hadn’t done it before. But even if we didn’t win it, we had to show we could play well against teams we might see in the state tournament, if

we get there.” Ninth-grader Brie Orr had 20 kills, 39 assists and 15 digs in the championship match. Junior Madeline McNeil had 22 assists, 12 digs and seven kills. Madson made 25 digs and Callie Schapekahm had six kills, two solo blocks and five block assists. Taylr McNeil, Madison and Orr were named to the all-tournament team. For Taylr McNeil, Saturday’s events meant she was on state championship volleyball teams at two different schools, and with two different sisters as teammates. She played for Lakeville North’s 2010 state championship team that had her sister Kellie as the setter and for Eagan’s 2013 title team with Madeline as a starter. The McNeil family moved from Lakeville to Eagan before the 2011-12 school year, mainly to be closer to a family member who was ill, Taylr McNeil said. The three sisters didn’t play together on the same

Kellie McNeil is a redshirt sophomore at South Carolina after playing her freshman year at Minnesota. Taylr is expected to sign with South Carolina and Madeline has verbally committed there. All three could be on the Gamecocks’ roster in 2015-16, which would be Kellie’s senior year of eligibility. It was Taylr’s dream

Athletes sign on the dotted line this week Early signing period started Wednesday by Mike Shaughnessy SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

More than three dozen student-athletes from the Sun Thisweek coverage area were recognized by their high schools Wednesday, when the National Letter of Intent early signing period began. The early signing period runs through Nov. 20. The signing period for several other sports, including football and soccer, begins Feb. 5, 2014. Following is the list of signings from Burnsville, Eagan and Eastview high schools. The full list, which also includes Apple Valley, Lakeville North and Lakeville South, is online at sunthisweek.com.

were scheduled to sign with colleges Wednesday. Four of them are volleyball players – Greta Geist (who will go to Southwest State), Kacie Hagen (Minnesota, Crookston), Alyssa Muelken (Minnesota, Crookston) and Lauren Randall (University of Mary). Southwest State, Crookston and Mary all play in the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference. Vivian Hett, the 2013 state girls Nordic skiing runner-up, will ski at Northern Michigan University. Girls hockey players Emma Wittchow and Lindsey Coleman will continue their careers in Division I at Minnesota State, Mankato. Georgi Donchetz of the girls basketball team also will go to Division I at Valparaiso University. Alexis Dobrzynski, a state meet qualifier in girls swimming, will swim for the University of Indianapolis. Kallie LaValle,

Apple Valley High School boys basketball player Tyus Jones will put an end to years of speculation by announcing his college decision and National Letter of Intent signing at 3 p.m. Friday, Nov. 15, at the high school. The announcement will take place in the AVHS

gymnasium. The public is invited to attend; doors will open to students and the public at 2:30. Jahlil Okafor of Whitney Young High School in Chicago is expected to announce his choice at the same time Friday. That’s significant because Jones and Okafor have pledged to attend the same college. The two are longtime friends through AAU basketball and overseas trips with USA Basketball teams. Duke and Kansas ap-

Madeline McNeil’s serve struck the tape, toppled over the net and hit the floor before a Delano player could reach it. And then the emotions flowed from the Eagan bench. Relief, or elation? “Both of those, for sure,” Madison said. Email Mike Shaughnessy at mike.shaughnessy@ecminc.com.

Rosemount dominated the Section 3AA meet, winning the team championship by about 150 points. Eagan and Eastview placed fourth and sixth in the eight-team section. Eagan’s state qualifier is sophomore Deidree Voss, who took third in the 100 breaststroke in 1:08.25. Eastview junior Chelle Watkins was Section 3AA runner-up in diving with 377.25 points and will compete at state. The state Class AA meet begins Monday with diving preliminaries.

Officers, deputies are first line in violence prevention by Tad Johnson SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

When Rosemount Police Chief Eric Werner was a sergeant for the Burnsville Police Department, he was making a routine visit at an apartment complex in the city. There he met a woman whom he recalled he assisted months ago as a member of the Domestic Violence Response Unit when she was the victim of assault. She didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t remember him, but Werner was overwhelmed by the changes he saw. The woman had a wonderful apartment, her children were happy and growing due, in large part, because the woman was able to escape the abusive relationship with her husband. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s moments like this Werner and other officers focus on when battling domestic violence â&#x20AC;&#x201C; one of the most pervasive crimes in the south metro, Minnesota and the nation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That is why we are here â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to help others,â&#x20AC;? said Werner, who worked in Burnsville for 13 years before being hired as Rose-

Ann Holland, of Apple Valley, are among the statistics. Charges are pending in the death of Schunk, 20, whose body was found Monday, Sept. 30, in rural Rice County. Police believe the University of Minnesota student and Burnsville High School graduate was killed in Rosemount, where she was last seen Sept. 22. The Schunk family reported that police said they found her bloodstained jacket with puncture holes in it and a knife connected to the case. Schunk was with her ex-boyfriend, Anthony Lee Nelson, at closing time Sept. 22 outside Ninaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

Grill in Burnsville when Nelson allegedly shot a man to death. Authorities say she left the bar with Nelson and his current girlfriend, Ashley Marie Conrade, and they drove to her Rosemount townhome. Schunkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s family reported her missing Sept. 23. Roger Earl Holland, 36, has been charged with two counts of second-degree murder in connection with the death of his wife and their unborn child. Margorie Ann Holland, 37, was found March 7 by police lying at the bottom of a stairway in her apartment, according to the criminal complaint. Police and medical per-

collect physical evidence and witness statements immediately. Werner said itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s often the first priority on the scene to separate the victim from the alleged perpetrator and calm down both of the parties. Officers immediately start collecting evidence. Werner said they are trained to ask the right questions to support possible charges. With a typical 48-hour hold in jail for those arrested on probable cause, officers need to work quick to submit charges to the city or county attorneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office especially if they feel a suspectâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s release would further endanger a victim. Residents can best help in preventing domestic violence by calling police if they suspect abuse or indications that abuse could occur â&#x20AC;&#x201C; shouting, visible injuries or a personâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s change in emotional state.

Roger Holland told police he found her facedown on the floor and nonresponsive. He said he began CPR before calling 911 to report that his wife was in cardiac arrest. Jury selection for the case is underway. Opening statements and testimony for the trial will begin Monday, Dec. 2. The Oct. 8 shooting deaths of a married Rosemount couple, which was ruled a murder-suicide, were not included in yearto-date statistics.

The nonprofit agency also offers an array of victim support services, including court advocacy, sexual assault counseling, food assistance and much more. The swift, professional and compassionate response to the frequent reports of domestic assault â&#x20AC;&#x153;starts the process of how we create healthy families,â&#x20AC;? Werner said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is a lot of work with a lot of different people to prevent further violence and to undo what had been done,â&#x20AC;? Werner said. He said Dakota County is blessed to have the cooperation of 360 Communities, the Dakota County Attorneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office, the sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s department and other municipal police departments. That cooperation helps address what Werner said is the biggest concern in preventing domestic violence. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The arrest is a stopgap measure,â&#x20AC;? he said, because its doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t deal with the fact that boys who witness domestic vio-

lence are twice as likely to abuse their own partners and children when they become adults, according to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When children are involved, it is heartbreaking,â&#x20AC;? he said. Programs like those at 360 Communities and court services allow boys to access counseling services in an effort to end the cycle of violence. Werner said domestic violence response and prevention is a top priority for the department. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m proud of what we have in our organization to meet the challenges,â&#x20AC;? he said. Although the frequency of reports and the complexity of the response can make efforts to prevent domestic violence a huge challenge, Werner said people canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t focus solely on the statistics. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What would it be like if we did nothing?â&#x20AC;? Werner asked. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Getting the best outcome for families â&#x20AC;&#x201C; that is our measure for success.â&#x20AC;?

Although the situations vary from call to call, DART officers do their best to assist victims and refer them to services like Burnsville-based 360 Communities, which runs the Lewis House shelters for women and children who have been victims of domestic abuse in addition to offering an array of support services.

SUN THISWEEK - Burnsville - Eagan November 15, 2013 15A

ProAct recognizes Employers of the Year Four area companies were chosen by ProAct Inc., an Eagan-based nonprofit serving people with disabilities, for its Employer of the Year awards. Winning in the Business Partner category was Applied Power Products, a distributor of seals, hoses and power transmission products. Individuals from ProAct use glue and tape to assemble noise filters made from felt material. Applied Power Products

is based in Eagan, and has a production facility in Lakeville. Burnsville-based Apothecary Products was the winner in the Community Employment category. Over a three-year span, 57 people from ProAct have worked as crew members for Apothecary, packaging more than 500,000 items. Employer of the Year recognition for the Supported Employment cat-

egory went to the Potbelly Sandwich Shop in Eagan, which has employed ProAct’s Tim Nordstrom for more than five years. The fourth Employer of the Year award was given to the Subway restaurant located inside Eagan-based Thomson Reuters. The sandwich maker employs two individuals from ProAct and has gone above and beyond normal expectations for employee training.

they’ll lose their means of support. In a case where a son was arrested for attacking his mother and brother, Long and a detective had to call in backup after the mother and brother began attacking the police once they realized the officers were going to make an arrest, he said. While the majority of domestic violence homicides involve a man murdering a woman, and domestic incidents in general are commonly between a man and woman, domestic violence can occur in any type of relationship. The Brooklyn Center Police Department and DART are working to educate people of all cultures about resources related to domestic violence. “In some cultures, violence is expected, it’s almost acceptable,” said Brooklyn Center Police Department Cmdr. Tim Gannon. “The department is trying to let people know not to be afraid of police and have us come out and help.” Brooklyn Park police use the knock-and-talk program for high-risk cases. Officers and Domestic Violence Prevention Coordinator Jamie Olson will make unannounced visits to a house when they believe an assault may occur. “We try to do it as close to an assault as we can, and the goal is to provide the victim with information, possibly make arrests for future order violations and most importantly create a relationship with the victim to trust police in future,” Olson said. Every domestic-related case, whether assault or order-related violations, goes to Olson. Every case is scored with a recidivism test (likelihood of par-

ticular offender offending again), Ontario Domestic Assault Risk Assessment and a lethality assessment. Overall, domestic incidents tend to fluctuate from year to year, but an increase in reports of assaults isn’t necessarily a bad thing, according to Olson. “When we see an increase in numbers, it doesn’t necessarily mean there’s been an increase in violence,” Olson said. “It just means there has been an increase in reporting.” What happens behind closed doors between loved ones, family members and friends is hard to uncover and prevent. While law enforcement does its best to combat the problem, most cases of domestic violence are never reported to the police, according to the 1989 Violence in Marriage study. Even the amount of domestic homicides reported is up for interpretation. “It’s been a very tragic year, but this is just a small group of those who have suffered from domestic violence,” said Safia Khan Lovett, a program manager for the Minnesota Coalition for Battered Women. “There are thousands more that go unreported.” According to Olson, domestic violence is an issue that affects each and every community, whether it is acknowledged or not. “It doesn’t matter if it’s low income, high income, what race,” she said. “It’s something that’s part of every community.”

is to stop the problem and reduce repeat calls. “We let the abusers know that we won’t tolerate this behavior and do our best to help the victim get past the situation,” Paulson said. The incidents vary as much as the areas in which they occur and the socioeconomic groups they affect. In Edina, a suburb with an affluent reputation, domestic violence occurs as frequently as anywhere else but is less likely to be reported, according to Edina Police Chief Jeff Long. The community has less multifamily housing, meaning the domestic violence is occurring in single-family houses where it is not heard and reported like it would be in an apartment building, he said. Police also refer victims to Public Health agencies for services. State law is clear that police have to arrest the suspect in domestic abuse if he or she is causing injury to another person, Long said. “The law is there to protect victims,” he said. Domestic violence situations are precarious for both for officers and the people involved. “It’s an emotionally charged situation where people aren’t thinking rationally and can turn to knives, guns or their fists when police arrive,” Long said. Victims have a history of turning on officers when a family member is being arrested, Long said. In some cases, the victim is dependent on a spouse for financial support and realizes the arrest means

HOTEL, from 1A scheduled to vote on the agreement and contract Nov. 19, Nienhaus said. City officials have pined for a hotel on the final parcel of land known as the AAA property west of Nicollet Avenue. The hotel site is north of the city’s Performing Arts Center and Heart of the City parking deck. A hotel would boost business in the area and complement the arts center, helping it attract corporate bookings, backers say. “I think the Performing Arts Center has some attraction to developers” as well, Nienhaus said. Akota Hospitality reportedly couldn’t round up enough financing for the $503,600 land pur-

BUILDING, from 1A 30. A neighborhood meeting was held Aug. 22 at Dakota Ridge School, and notices were sent to immediate neighbors. One resident suggested creating an access to the new building from Diamond Path instead of 144th Street.

Other residents expressed concerns about property values and screening, while one

chase and construction of a $3.5 million hotel. The North Dakota-based hotel management firm missed the city’s Oct. 31 deadline for closing on the property. The Economic Development Authority approved the deal with Akota June 4. Terms of the new deal require NLD Holdings to close on the property by July 15, 2014, begin construction by July 31 and finish by June 30, 2015. Other terms are similar to those of the previous deal. The developer is required to build approximately 14 city-owned parking spaces on Travelers Trail, and the city is required to expand the parking deck. It will pay for that project through tax-increment financing funds, proceeds from the

woman insisted the district study whether crime would increase due to evening classes for the Adult Basic Education program. The district’s early childhood and adult learning programs are currently housed in two separate leased buildings on County Road 42 in Apple Valley and Rahn Road in Eagan. In preparation for their lease to expire in August 2014, district officials looked in late 2012 at the feasibility of moving the programs to a new building. Officials say the new center will better accommodate those programs and save money in the long term.

land sale, a county redevelopment grant and possibly a Metropolitan Council grant. The hotel parcel is part of a larger 6.25-acre parcel the city bought for $1.8 million in 2001. The arts center, parking deck and Mediterranean Cruise Cafe now occupy most of the land. The remaining parcel has carried a “For Sale” sign for about four years. The city has gotten inquiries from would-be developers, but most of their plans — including gas stations and fast-food restaurants — didn’t meet Heart of the City zoning standards.

Early design concepts, which were presented to the School Board on Tuesday, feature a brick exterior with metal panels and large windows to create interest. The design takes advantage of natural light and creates spaces for both small children and adults. The architectural designs were $370,000 under budget. The project is estimated to cost $13.5 million. Officials plan to accept construction bids in early January. Jessica Harper is at jessica. harper@ecm-inc.com or facebook.com/sunthisweek.

For someone with a background in finance, Mindy Mejia sure knows a lot about reptiles. The Apple Valley resident and credit manager with a Bloomington electronics firm was in London on business a few years ago when she came across a newspaper article about Komodo dragons and their peculiar ability to give birth without first mating â&#x20AC;&#x201C; essentially a â&#x20AC;&#x153;virgin birth.â&#x20AC;? With her interest piqued, Mejia began feverishly researching Komodo dragons, and that research, including visits to zoos around the United States, culminated in her

zookeeper and the Komodo dragon she cares for as scientific, religious and media forces converge on the zoo after the reptile produces eggs without ever having had a mate. Mejia will be discussing her reptile research at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 19, at the Robert Trail Library in Rosemount as part of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Meet the Authorâ&#x20AC;? series sponsored by the Rosemount Area Arts Council.

reptiles comes as a surprise to those who know her. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m actually not a reptile person â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m the kind of person who sees a garter snake and screams and runs away,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Dragon Keeperâ&#x20AC;? is available from online booksellers such as Barnes & Noble and Amazon.
