Breaking the cycle starts with admission of using violence

Nearly 40 people across the state have died due to domestic violence this year, more than double the number of similar incidents reported last year. This series will focus on levels of domestic violence, its psychological aspects and what can be done to help those abused behind closed doors. Next week the series will look at how to get help.

With a number of domestic violence-related deaths across Minnesota, people are left to wonder how it is possible relationships can become so violent and fatal. Because each case is different, the root of domestic violence remains unclear, and contributing factors include media messages and mental illness. A majority of the batterers have witnessed do-

mestic violence before, said Aaron Milgrom, the director of therapy at the Domestic Abuse Project. According to Tubman Family Crisis and Support Services, family violence happens in one in three families in the United States. Nearly 3.3 million children between the ages of 3-17 have experienced or witnessed some sort of abuse in their families. Many women experiencing domestic abuse

come from abusive families, and it takes an emotional toll on children who develop negative behaviors as a coping strategy, according to the Lee Carlson Center Domestic Abuse Program in Blaine. This makes breaking the cycle so critical, Milgrom said. His work at the Minneapolis-based nonprofit DAP has focused on men’s therapy and helping to change the behaviors of batterers.

Dakota County’s share of property taxes on the median-priced home of $192,400 (assuming a 2.3 percent increase in value) will drop by $11 in 2014 when compared to 2013’s amount of $567. That decrease is due, in large part, to the county’s projected 0.5 percent decrease in the 2014 levy amount ($128.5 million), which was hailed by Minnesota Revenue Commissioner Myron Frans at a press conference Monday

in Hastings. Frans and Dakota County commissioners said sales tax exemptions and an increase in state aid to cities and counties contributed to the county’s ability to hold the line on taxes. The county received $3.7 million more in County Government Aid in 2014, a 30 percent increase to $16.4 million. The sales tax exemption is expected to save the county $841,000. Frans presented County Board Chairwoman Kathleen Gaylord with a hammer – a symbol that the state gave local governments the tools to reduce taxes.

Shrink-wrapping Eagan’s Town Hall

City approves hotel contract Hilton Garden Inn slated for Heart of the City by John Gessner SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Eagan’s historic Town Hall was shrink-wrapped on Nov. 19 to maintain surviving portion of the building through the winter. The 1914 structure was damaged by a Sept. 8 fire that officials say was caused by arson. City officials plan to speak with the Eagan Historical Society regarding their priorities and goals, and display and storage space needs. A report will be given to the council detailing additional findings and recommendations in the first quarter of 2014. (Photo by Rick Orndorf)

A contract with a developer to buy city-owned land and build a 100room Hilton Garden Inn in the Heart of the City was approved Nov. 19 by the Burnsville Economic Development Authority. The City Council, meeting as the EDA, approved the contract with NLD Holdings III LLC, an investor group that has built hotels and retail centers in Minnesota and nationally. The contract requires NLD Holdings to pay $503,600 for 1.75 acres of city-owned land north of the Burnsville Performing Arts Center and the adjacent Heart of the City parking deck. The property sale must be closed by July 15, 2014, and the hotel completed by June 30, 2015. The city has long sought a hotel in the

Heart of the City, which officials say will help draw corporate events to the arts center and boost business in the area. “I’m thrilled,� Council Member and EDA President Dan Kealey said. The hotel will “greatly enhance our city in many ways, and the businesses around it.� In June the EDA approved a similar contract with Akota Hospitality LLC, but the company missed its Oct. 31 deadline for closing on the property and abandoned the deal. Bringing a hotel to the Heart of the City has been “quite a roller-coaster ride,� Council Member Mary Sherry said. The contract calls for the hotel to include a restaurant, conference rooms, a fitness center, an indoor pool and 55 onsite parking stalls. The contract requires the developer to build

about 14 city-owned parking spaces on Travelers Trail and requires the city to expand the parking deck. The new deck spaces would be available to anyone, including hotel patrons. 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.

Housing projects approved for two vacant parcels Previous proposals fizzled by John Gessner SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Housing projects for two vacant Burnsville properties where previous projects fizzled won City Council approval Nov. 19. A 43-lot townhome project was approved for 6.2 acres northeast of 122nd Street East and Parkwood Drive. And a senior housing co-op with up to 53 units was approved for the corner of Burnsville Parkway and 125th Street, next to the Uptown Landing Condominiums in the Heart of the City.

Townhomes The townhome property has gone through three owners. Toll Broth-

ers Inc. got council approval in 2005 for 68 condominium units. The company didn’t build the project and sold the land to McDevitt Homes, which won approval for 68 condo units. McDevitt built a fiveunit building and a private road through the site before the housing market crashed. The property is now owned by Minnwest Bank Central. The vacant lot has raised concerns among neighbors about maintenance, erosion and illegal dumping, a city staff report said. Minnwest won approval in 2011 for 55 townhomes but didn’t build the project. Its latest proposal, called River Valley Commons, came to the council in April. Council members asked that the front of the units be reoriented so they wouldn’t face 122nd Street. They also asked

for improvements to the building materials and external design. “I believe staff and the Planning Commission felt this was a great improvement,� City Planner Chris Slania said of the retooled proposal. “We have seen a lot of attempts to develop this site, and this is the best one I’ve seen yet,� Council Member Mary Sherry said. The units are “larger townhomes� of 2,100 square feet, with three bedrooms and a loft, said Brian Tutt of builder T/C Homes Inc. They’ll appeal to first-time home buyers and people leaving their single-family homes, he said.

Senior co-op The council, acting as the Economic Development Authority, approved a redevelopment contract with United Properties Residential

LLC to build an Applewood Pointe Senior Cooperative. The company has built seven Applewood senior co-ops in the Twin Cities, said Alex Hall of United Properties. “This has been on our radar screen, this area, for a couple years,� he said of the Burnsville site. The company recently won approval to build its third senior coop in Bloomington, he said. Nearby amenities such as the CVS Pharmacy, the Burnsville Performing Arts Center and other businesses make the location appealing for prospective buyers, Hall said. Original plans for the property called for two more 37-unit Uptown Landing condo buildings, but the developer went out of business after the first building, a city staff report said.

The site was sold to a second developer, who sold the condo units and then sold the remaining land to a third developer “who has been unsuccessful in developing the property,� the report said. The co-op will have 50 to 53 units ranging from 900 to 1,800 square feet, the report said. The average unit will be 1,450 square feet and sell for around $283,000. “The exterior will be designed to meet Heart of the City zoning code,� the report said. The average age of Applewood co-op residents is 70. Under terms of a HUD-insured master mortgage, buyers are limited to people 62 and older. Located in the Heart of the City tax-increment financing district, the project is eligible for about $1.1 million in TIF subsidies. But the district

expires in 2019, and the developer is likely to collect only $338,440, based on estimated value and taxes, according to the city. Land acquisition, construction and other costs bring the value of the project to $13.8 million, the report said. The land has $180,000 in delinquent taxes and $109,000 in delinquent special assessments. “United Properties will need to pay the delinquent taxes and assessments as the seller is not willing� and hasn’t been making payments, the report said. The redevelopment contract calls for land acquisition by July 1, 2014. Construction must begin by April 30, 2015, and be finished by April 30, 2016.

Eagan affordable housing development gains funding Construction set for summer 2014 by Jessica Harper SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

A planned affordable housing development in Eagan received much needed financial support this month from the Minnesota Housing Partnership. The Dakota County Community Development Agency recently received a $500,000 deferred loan for its Lakeshore Townhomes project in Eagan. The CDA won’t have

to repay the loan at this time unless it sells the property or changes the use. “This helps cover our financing gap and reduces the amount of our first mortgage payment, which helps us keep rent affordable,� said Kari Gill, deputy executive director of the CDA. The majority (approximately 70 percent) of the project is funded by federal tax credits. The development, which was approved by the City Council in May, includes a 50-unit townhome complex at 1319 Jurdy Road south of Moonshine Park adja-

cent to LeMay Lake. Lakeshore is the latest expansion of the CDA’s Family Townhome Project, which is designed for moderate-income families with children under age 18. Plans for the complex include three onebedroom units, 22 twobedroom units and 25 three-bedroom units, along with gazebo and a toddler playground area. Construction is set to begin next summer and officials expect the project will be complete by the following summer. The CDA currently operates 19 rental townhome complexes under

the program, which includes two developments in Eagan. A third is set to open in the summer of 2013 and plans for a fourth development are moving forward. Eagan has been a popular site for new workforce housing developments in recent years due to its available real estate and growing need, Gill said. “There is a need

throughout the county, especially in the northern portion,� Gill said. There are currently more than 1,000 families on a waiting list for the CDA’s Family Townhome Project. Lakeshore will likely be the CDA’s last affordable housing project in Eagan for a while, Gill said. CDA officials are now looking at Lakeville, Rosemount and

Farmington as potential sites. A coalition of organizations focused on homelessness and affordable housing, the Minnesota Housing Partnership has granted more than $54 million for affordable housing across the state. Jessica Harper is at jessica. harper@ecm-inc.com or facebook.com/sunthisweek.

Opinion

Education funding must be adequate, fair, accountable Financing the education of Minnesota’s kindergarten through grade 12 students takes nearly half of the state’s annual budget and by constitutional provision the funds must support a “uniform system” of public schools so that each student receives an “adequate” education. We believe more needs to be done to both insure that funding is adequate to accomplish our educational goals and that variances in funding address more uniform opportunities across districts and not advantages to some and not others. State and local school officials must also demonstrate accountability that programs are working to levels that show student success. The Minnesota Legislature has guaranteed each child basic aid of $5,302 this year and $5,806 in the following year, which includes a different per pupil weighting for next year. The actual per pupil percentage increase for both years is 1.5 percent. Not every child, however, is backed by an equal amount of money, in part because voters in some districts passed property tax levy referendums and some did not. The amount of this additional property tax levy per pupil varies district to district. We think too much of a Minnesota child’s education depends on local politics (sometimes national politics); local property tax wealth; local household income and ability to pay. We recommend

ECM Editorial reliance and access to these local voterapproved tax levies be reduced. Some districts also receive additional funds based on a high percentage of students from poverty and/or racially isolated schools. There is general agreement that students from poor families need more help to learn lessons. A specific goal is for all students to be reading thirdgrade material as they enter fourth grade. We think these funds are greatly needed if Minnesota is going to close the achievement gap between socioeconomic groups. During the last legislative session the Legislature approved funding for universal all-day/every-day kindergarten and increased funding for preschool education. We supported both provisions and believe this is a major step toward closing the achievement gap and raising the level of education for all students. In addition, districts that meet the poverty criteria can get integration aid and federal and state compensatory funding to close the achievement gap. This additional funding should also be continued. The Legislature increased special education funding by $40 million and set up a schedule of future payments. Since individual programs for children with learning disabilities by law must be funded, school districts last year spent $585 million of general operating funds to fund

special education. The underfunding of special education continues to detract from the adequacy of our total funding effort and needs to be addressed. We reduce or increase what we spend on education based on the economy. On the surface that seems to make sense. We delay payment to the schools to cover our state debt and cash flow, forcing schools to borrow on our behalf. That doesn’t make so much sense. We want long-range planning for the education of our students but we change the funding formulas and commitments every two years, reacting to everything but a long-range educational plan and specific expectations for success. We struggle to find balance between local control and state funding; between local funding and state expectations. Throw in federal funding and federal expectations and the blueprint for educational success starts to look like a Rube Goldberg design. Parents expect the programs that were available for their older child to be there for their younger child. If their neighbors pass a property tax provision, their programs will remain in place. If the levy is voted down, a child’s program is cut. If state revenues are up, the foundation formula can chase inflation. If state revenues are down, the formula lags behind. If a Legislature is anti-tax, the funding is challenged and programming is insecure. If the Legislature has too many initiatives,

funding for education suffers. If the new employee contract is affordable, programs stay in place. If a new contract exceeds revenue increases, class size goes up and programs change. So where in this system of funding is the reliability for Mom and Dad? Where in this system of funding are the assurances for each student? What is the core plan for the success of Minnesota’s schools and how financially committed are we to that plan? Some suggest the educational funding system is too complex. We would suggest the problem isn’t with complexity as much as with commitment. With commitment, however, must come accountability. We insist that accountability for expenditures be built into educational programs at the local, state and federal levels so that funds are spent to reach goals that can be measured to determine either their success or failure. Within the past few years a state study group recommended provisions for the funding of education. We think these recommendations represent a good start. We now need to revisit those recommendations in view of an educational plan and make a long-range commitment to funding that plan.

Thanksgiving has something for everyone, right or left by Dan Hall SPECIAL TO SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Thanksgiving is becoming a 21st century embarrassment. This holiday implies recognition of a higher power. It takes us out of the driver’s seat and portrays us as recipients, dependents. In a society where the political left can be slow to acknowledge God and the right can be slow to acknowledge dependency, Thanksgiving presents us an uncomfortable challenge. If you will bear with me through this contemporary indiscretion, this Thanksgiving message, I think we can all find enriching lessons from Thanksgiving writers past and present. In the spirit of the cornucopia, there is something for everyone. I have enjoyed, and recommend to you, four quick readings on Thanksgiving. Three of the readings can be found via a Google search using the names Belcher, Washington and Lincoln and the phrase “Thanksgiving Proclamation.” The fourth reading can be found by searching the title “Thanksgiving, All Too Un-Human.” The authorities issuing these proclama-

Guest Columnist

Dan Hall

tions range from a British colonial governor to American presidents to a modernday citizen. Though the authors differ in time and place, they share a remarkable number of themes. I would like to review those themes with you. Lincoln cautioned us to remember “bounties, which are so constantly enjoyed that we are prone to forget.” Four bounties for which our forefathers consistently gave thanks were peace, food, good government and civil/religious liberties. Washington gave particular thanks for our Constitution. How wonderful that some 200 years after our country’s founding we can still count these good things among our blessings. The left and the right can clash in their

regard for the country’s founders and the Constitution they created. People on the left wag their fingers at the homogenous, privileged group that wrote the Constitution. While our founders were not all that diverse in appearance, they were wise enough to build a system lasting 200-plus years — something that few of us will accomplish. The left and the right also sometimes clash on the role of civil/religious liberties. Increasingly, public policy and public institutions have banished religion to the interior of a sanctuary. Your deity and beliefs might differ from mine, so public policy defaults to the official position that there is no deity or that he makes no difference. (Note that this official stance is still a faith position in that it cannot be proven.) I suggested that the aforementioned Thanksgiving writers offer something for everyone: They offer humility. While the left is uncomfortable with our national heritage and religion in public life, it is quick to note that we are not perfect and that our country has done wrong. Lincoln

termed this condition “national perverseness and disobedience.” Along with Washington, the writers encourage citizens to humbly ask for pardon of “national and other transgressions.” The writers do not believe “my country right or wrong;” they believe in a higher standard. Finally, the writers encourage citizens to commit themselves to “undefiled religion” or “true religion.” What are these? Both terms refer to a passage from the Bible. Lincoln summarized with the phrase, “care for all those who have become widows, orphans, mourners or sufferers.” There you have it. Despite our inclination to be callous, Thanksgiving still offers 21st century America what we need. We need to remember we are blessed recipients, we are imperfect, and we need to care for others. A very happy Thanksgiving to all. Sen. Dan Hall is a Burnsville Republican who represents District 56, which covers Savage, much of Burnsville and part of Lakeville. Columns reflect the opinion of the author.

Letters Chamber president’s opinions exaggerated To the editor: In a recent guest column, the president of the Minnesota Chamber of Commerce paints a gloomy picture of our state’s economy, like he’s done in very similar editorials in various papers around the state. He apparently intends to discredit the idea of raising taxes on wealthier corporations and individuals. His memory is selective. Just over a year ago, Republicans claimed in campaign literature sent out by the Chamber, that it took only a year to “turn a $6 billion deficit into a $2 billion surplus.” We were expected to ignore the fact that the numbers were

suspect, disregard that it was borrowed money, to never mind they pawned future tobacco settlement receipts, and ignore the damaging cuts made to higher education and job development initiatives. We were asked to forget that the GOP produced a historic shutdown costing the state millions in wages, taxes collected and restart costs. So now, the Chamber president mentions some report from Minnesota Management and Budget he says shows tax collections are “negative and underperforming expectations” from July through September. Strangely he doesn���t mention any other specifics. He further avoids mentioning the upgrading of the state’s bond rating this past summer, a response to the Legislature’s passing a balanced,

funded budget. Earlier Republican shifts and gimmicks damaged Minnesota’s bond rating in 2011. This recent rating upgrade saves interest charges for state taxpayers. It also signals businesses that Minnesota is reliable, a good place to do business. Recent employment figures and Forbes’ high evaluation bear that out. The idea that somehow wealthier individuals and corporations should pay a lesser portion of their income than lower-income earners doesn’t hold water. Yet favoritism for the wealthy by Republican legislators created that exact inequality in years prior to this one. The Chamber and affiliate PACs spent hundreds of thousands to keep the Legislature in the hands of the GOP that brought us divisiveness, shutdown, disinvestment and scan-

If the minimum wage is to become $10 per hour but a worker only produces $7 per hour in products, the employer will probably not be able to stay in business. And if an employer should be so munificent and give $10 an hour why not be truly generous and make certain all employees receive at least $100,000 per year? Yet, we know that wages, like business taxes must all be passed on to the consumers. As the price of products and

services must increase in direct proportion to the costs of manufacturing, the wages of skilled workers must also increase leaving the least productive workers earning pay at their same relative entry level. It is good to be sympathetic to the status of the entry level worker but sheer folly to think that a free lunch really exists. I am glad that U.S. Rep. John Kline, R-Burnsville, understands all of the ramifications and unintended consequences of this campaign to increase the minimum wage. I trust that reason and logic will continue to govern his every vote. RICHARD IFFERT Eagan

Increase the minimum wage To the editor: A good case can be made for raising the minimum wage to $9.50 an hour just based on its effect on the velocity of money in the local community. But of course the state would also get the moral high ground. It’s a statement that says Minnesota values the labor of its peo-

ple. An estimated 93,000 people currently earn the minimum wage in Minnesota and are now paid at about $7.25 an hour (the federal minimum). Raising the minimum wage to $9.50 an hour would mean better wages for more than just the minimum wage workers. Nearly 360,000 Minnesotans would be affected. Among them would especially be women, people of color and youth. An increase to $9.50 an hour would only bring the annual wage for a full-time worker up to $19,760 annually – below the poverty level for a family of four in 2013 ($23,550). The higher minimum would be a step away from government dependency and an added incentive to work. Raising the minimum wage to $9.50 and hour is estimated to add more than $470 million in consumer-spending power to fuel Minnesota’s economy.  Contact your local state senator and representative to tell them to support an increase in the minimum wage.   JOHN LARVA Burnsville See LETTERS, 5A

Opinion Minnesotans lose in wake of new health care law by John Kline SPECIAL TO SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

The numbers are daunting. 140,000. That’s the number of people in Minnesota who already have been notified their health coverage will be canceled as a result of the president’s health care law, referred to by most including the president as “Obamacare.� For many Minnesotans a cancellation notice means more than the loss of an insurance policy; it means losing access to the trusted doctors, pediatricians, and nurses who care for their families. We all know how critical these relationships are, especially in difficult moments when a loved one is injured or ill. But for countless families, those relationships will soon be lost, all because Washington bureaucrats think they know best. In the more than three years since the president’s health care plan became law, I continually heard from constituents about the endless concerns they had with a law that has created 20,000 pages of regulations. Now, as the law is being implemented, I hear daily from Minnesotans who because of the new law, are seeing their rates skyrocket or are losing their health insurance plan altogether and being forced into government run health care where they can no longer

LETTERS, from 4A

What am I missing? To the editor: It seems almost every day we are hearing about how bad the Affordable Care Act is. We keep hearing about people losing the insurance they love or the prices are horrendous. It also appears that President Obama is being blamed for the whole mess. All these insurance policies that are disappearing do not meet the criteria for inclusion in the Affordable Care Act and so the insurance companies have discontinued them. As far as

Three years ago, he was diagnosed with lung disease and had a lung transplant. “While the lung transplant was successful and saved his life, he has had many complications since,� Linda explains. Her husband is 59 and was told they could keep this insurance until he was 65. Due to Obamacare, she said, her husband’s employer was dropping their coverage since he was disabled and retired. “This is devastating to us,� she told me. “I am very angry that we had to be cut from our policy because of Obamacare costs.� Kurt from Eagan is seeing his health care premiums rise $200 a month because of Obamacare. “I understand I am getting more coverage, but it is coverage that I don’t need or want,� he said. “I am perfectly capable of picking coverage

I know the president has had nothing to do with the cancellations other than desiring that the people will have descent coverage by setting a minimum acceptable standard of coverage. There are also many complaints about the cost of policies being offered and again the president is being blamed while it is the insurance companies who are setting the prices offered on the websites. Finally there are thousands of complaints about how difficult it is to get online and sign up for coverage. Again, I personally cannot see where the president is to blame since it was the GOP who failed to fund

Jim is a self-employed plumber in Inver Grove Heights. He is married with three children. His family was notified their health care plan was being dropped at the end of the year due to Obamacare mandates. Jim was notified the closest available plan for his family will increase in cost by 37 percent. “We are going to pay more and get less coverage,â€? Jim said. “We will be paying for services that we do not want or need. I still cannot believe that in America we are forced to comply (with) mandated health insurance or face a penalty.â€?

cans who like what they have. It didn’t have to put federal bureaucrats in charge of what procedure is covered and what medication is not. Washington’s goal should have been to fix what’s broken in our health care system while preserving what works – driving down costs without sacrificing quality. During debate of Obamacare, I joined many colleagues in support of a plan designed to reduce health care costs, and improve the quality of care – all at a price our country can afford. That plan would have allowed Americans who liked their health care coverage to keep it – a stark contrast to the law being implemented today. I will continue to fight for commonsense, patient-centered solutions rather than the president’s current big government approach to health care. “It infuriates us that the government can tell us what health care we have to go with, and that we will lose our coverage,� Diane of Rosemount said. “We are not in control of our own lives anymore.� John Kline is chairman of the House Education and the Workforce Committee.

Latest Lebanon Hills plan gets mixed reviews

After facing staunch opposition, Dakota Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s latest draft of its master plan for Lebanon Hills Regional Park received mixed reviews. 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 Hills the same, and would add six miles of unpaved trails. In total, the park would have 46 miles of unpaved trails. The plan envisions the paved trails would provide four-season recreation for bicyclists, walkers and skaters. In the latest draft, officials are considering closing the western loop around Holland and McDonough lakes in the winter to allow cross-country skiers to cross the trail. The latest draft also calls for a rocky beach to allow visitors to walk along the shore of Holland Lake as well as rustic cabins in

ural materials such as wood chips or environmentally sustainable materials for a paved trail. Dakota County Parks Director Steve Sullivan said the county found available resources were either ineffective or too expensive. Hedland and other members of Wilderness in the City, a group of more than 100 opponents, accused the county of ignoring the 2001 Master Plan. Sullivan said he believes the latest master plan is similar to the 2001 version and strikes a balance between recreation and preservation. He also noted that 67 percent of the park property was farmed for 120 years, and that the connector trail would follow these previously farmed areas to avoid disrupting environmentally sensitive portions of the park. Since 2001, the county has invested $5.2 million to preserve park natural resources and $3.7 million on developing recreational areas, Sullivan said Opponents also claim the paved trail will harm the environment and the aesthetics of the park. Noting that Lebanon Hills was recently named the best place to hike in the Twin Cities by Runners Magazine, Eagan resident Pat Cumming contended that a paved trail would hurt the parkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s popularity.

Open house set for parkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s master plan the public a chance to meet with staff, learn more about the plan and provide input in person. Comments may also be sent by email to planning@ co.dakota.mn.us, by mail to Dakota County Office of Planning, Attn.: Mary Jackson, 14955 Galaxie Ave., Apple Valley, MN 55124, or by filling out a comment card at the Lebanon Hills Visitor Center, 860 Cliff Road, Eagan.

A 60-day public review and comment period for Dakota Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lebanon Hills Regional Park Master Plan is open until Jan. 18, and the public is invited to weigh in on plan elements, including natural resource restoration projects, improved amenities and trail enhancements. An open house will be held from 5-7 p.m. Monday, Dec. 16, at the Dakota County Western Service Center, 14955 Galaxie Ave., Apple Valley, to give

Several residents said they worry about buckthorn in the parks and accuse the county of not doing enough to eradicate the invasive plant. Others expressed concerns about bikes on the trail becoming a hazard for walkers. While most opponents demanded the board drop the latest master plan proposal all together, one resident urged the board to find a compromise. A 1,842-acre park in Eagan and Apple Valley, Lebanon Hills is four times the size of the average park in the metro. The park currently has a campground, a beach and 19 miles of unpaved trails that are used by bicyclists, horseback riders and walkers. Less than a mile of paved walkways are near the visitor center. Lebanon Hills has had an influx of visitors which has increased to 544,000 in 2012.

camping areas. These improvements are estimated to cost $1.5 million per year over a 20-year period. Residents and advocates filled the board meeting room in West St. Paul to voice their concerns. Though there continues to be staunch opposition, a handful of people spoke in favor of the plan. Margo Imdieke-Cross of the Minnesota State Council on Disabilities said she believes the new paved trails would allow better access for people with disabilities. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This plan allows people with disabilities to access the park in a meaningful way,â&#x20AC;? said Imdieke-Cross, who uses a wheelchair. Eagan resident Jeff Sparks noted that improving access with paved trails is also important for the metroâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s aging population. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t walk on unpaved paths anymore,â&#x20AC;? the 67-year-old said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be more like me in the future.â&#x20AC;? Several residents contend that people with disabilities can access the park without paved trails. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I believe in access, but I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe asphalt trails through the heart of the park would achieve this,â&#x20AC;? said Laura Hedland, former chair of the 2001 Lebanon Hills Master Plan. Some residents suggested the county look into nat-

Meth still a problem in Dakota County Prosecutions up in recent years by Andy Rogers SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Attacking the methamphetamine trade is like a much more dangerous version of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;whack a moleâ&#x20AC;? carnival game. No matter how hard law enforcement hits the problem, it keeps popping up. Instead of homemade meth, which was the problemâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s origin in past years, a more potent form of the drug is coming from Mex-

ico. The most common drug prosecution in Dakota County is methamphetamine related. In 2012, there were 172 individuals charged with meth-related crimes, up from 156 in 2011. According to Dakota County Drug Task Force Cmdr. Dan Bianconi, the trend in 2013 has continued upward. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still far lower than it was in the early 2000s. In 2006 the Combat Methamphetamine Epidemic Act was enacted, requiring medicine with pseudoephedrine and ephedrine be put behind the counter

at drug stores, and domestic meth production has decreased in large numbers since. In 2004, there were 417 meth-related arrests in Dakota County, and it was more than 300 each year from 2004-2007. It reached a low in 2009 with 124 arrests and has hovered between 160-180 since. Local laboratories are now few and far between, but the problem hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t gone away. In recent years, meth has increased in both quantity and quality, according to Bianconi. The Department of Justice recently released a report stating purity has increased by more than 130 percent, while cost has decreased by 60-70 percent. The biggest reason, according to Bianconi, is due to the fact that the meth trade is now controlled by Mexican cartels. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It takes fewer people involved in the organization, which ultimately has made it cheaper,â&#x20AC;? Bianconi said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re flooding the market. If half their load gets stopped at the border, it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t matter. They have runners and distributors up here, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pennies to them. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re making a big profit. ... The presence of cartels are becoming more established here.â&#x20AC;? According to the Drug Enforcement Administration, as much as 80 percent of meth sold in the United State originates in Mexico, where there are more sophisticated and larger laboratories. According to the DEA,

Mexican meth targets urban and suburban areas with a larger client base, and Interstate 35 drives right through Dakota County, which is a direct access to the south. The now-defunct division of the Justice Department, the National Drug Intelligence Center, reported that Mexican criminal organizations, including seven major drug cartels, were operational in more than 1,000 cities in the United States. The Mexican Drug War has been a seven-year conflict between rival cartels and government officials with a death toll somewhere between 50,000 and 100,000, according to the Mexican government and human rights organizations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The cartels have been around for a long, long time, but the issue is the level of violence primarily in Mexico,â&#x20AC;? Dakota County Sheriff Dave Bellows said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The number of violent crimes have become more pronounced there, but the level of violence associated with narcotics is high anywhere.â&#x20AC;? With that in mind, the Dakota County Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s department has worked with the DEA as well as the Federal Bureau of Investigation in recent years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a countrywide problem,â&#x20AC;? Bianconi said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We might start with something in Dakota County, but the case will take you right down to Arizona or the Mexican border.â&#x20AC;? Dakota County has had members of Mexican drug cartels in their

cocaine and heroin all decreased from 2011 to 2012. Cocaine prosecutions dropped from 88 in 2011 to 50 in 2012. While meth remains the most prosecuted drug crime in the county, officials are also concerned about the rise in heroin use. Like meth, heroin is stronger and cheaper than it used to be. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s often imported from Afghanistan and Mexico. Dakota County Drug Take Back program aims to curb the use by addressing prescription drug abuse. Individuals can anonymously drop off unused prescription drugs at local police departments. Bellows said people often get addicted to leftover Vicodin and Percocet pain killers, which leads them to a low-cost alternative of heroin. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Years ago, ... heroin was 50 percent pure,â&#x20AC;? Bellows said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 90-95 percent.â&#x20AC;? While drug-related crimes make up 30-35 percent of arrests, many other offenses are directly related to controlled substances, according to Bellows. Individuals with violent offenses and burglary charges are often related to drugs and alcohol, whether someone is under the influence at the time or trying to sustain a habit. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To me, drugs are the Other crimes fuel that feed the fire of Meth-related crimes crime,â&#x20AC;? Bellows said. made up 44 percent of all drug prosecutions in Email Andy Rogers at Dakota County last year. andy.rogers@ecm-inc.com. Prosecution from marijuana, prescription drugs, jail, according to Bellows. Compared to other areas of Minnesota and the United States, the area is far from a hot spot. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dakota County still remains an extraordinarily safe place to live,â&#x20AC;? Bellows said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s here. I would never deny that. But I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to go overboard.â&#x20AC;? Meth still isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t easy to obtain. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If someone wants to go out and buy meth today, I bet you lunch they wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t find any by the end of the day,â&#x20AC;? Bianconi said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It would take some time, but once you get involved, they seem to find it.â&#x20AC;? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not specific to any demographic. Dakota County covers rural, suburban and more innercity areas, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;everywhere and in between,â&#x20AC;? Bianconi said. The Dakota County Drug Task Force consists of officers in the Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office as well as area communities coordinating together to combat illegal drug activity. Police use undercover officers and informants during investigation, but it often starts with a tip from the community. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The public generally knows whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going on next door,â&#x20AC;? Bianconi said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re the best judge of the neighborhood.â&#x20AC;?

Americans have too many clothes, says Sarah Vandelist, a 2011 Lakeville North High School graduate who founded a business that addresses her concerns about an over-abundance of secondhand clothing. The Macalester College junior makes and sells fleece-lined mittens made of recycled sweaters, a business that started by word-of-mouth after she had received a pair as a gift and decided to try making them herself. Others saw them, requested a pair for themselves or for gifts, and about 1,000 pairs of handmade mittens later, Vandelist this spring opened a production studio near her St. Paul college. Vandelist said her business helps address her concerns about the amount of discarded textiles that wind up in landfills. According to the nonprofit Council for Textile Recycling, the U.S. generates an average of 25 billion pounds of textiles annually, including clothing, accessories, footwear, towels, bedding and draperies. Vandelist, who said she

Education District 196 students earn $2.5 million in U of M credits During the 2012-13 school year, District 196 high school students who participated in the College in the Schools (CIS) program earned a combined 5,432 college credits valued at more than $2.5 million, according to a value statement released by the University of Minnesota in November. CIS is a program where students earn college credits taking advanced courses at their high school that are taught by their high school teachers. There were 1,299 CIS student registrations from the five District 196 high schools last school year, an increase of 86 over the previous year. Rosemount High had 426 registrations, Eagan High 438, Eastview High 282, Apple Valley High 123 and the School of Environmental Studies had 30. At the 2012-13 U of M tuition rate of $463.85 per credit, the 5,432 credits earned by District 196 students are valued at $2,519,639. The school district paid the university $188,355 ($145 per course) for the students to take these college-credit courses at their high schools last year. According to a survey of CIS alumni, 94 percent of respondents were successful in getting other colleges to recognize U of M credits earned through the CIS program.

Ex-Eastview star athlete charged in double homicide Police report: Mistaken identity leads to shooting by Farmington man, former Eastview student by Andy Rogers SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Former star athlete at Eastview High School Dijon Cordell Sanders, 22, who lives in Farmington, was charged with two

counts of second-degree murder in Minneapolis last week in connection with the deaths of two men in South Minneapolis last summer. Sanders was a senior at Eastview High School in 2009 when he was an allstate offensive lineman. He signed a letter of intent to play football for North Dakota State. He also had 58 career wins for the Eastview wrestling team. De’Von L. Burt, 18, and Keondray Q. Wilson,

20, were shot and killed while sitting in a car in the alley between 18th Avenue South and Cedar Avenue South in Minneapolis on Aug. 25. According to the police report, witnesses heard gunshots and saw two men running through the alley of the 2600 block of 18th Avenue South at 8:30 p.m. Aug. 25. One of the male descriptions matched that of Sanders. Sanders was also charged with two counts

of attempted second-degree murder as two women in the car were hit by bullets. They were treated at a local hospital and survived while the two men were pronounced dead at the scene. The surviving passengers said the four of them had gone shopping and ate dinner in Uptown and had pulled into the alley when the two men approached the car and fired 33 shots — 14 from a .40 caliber firearm and 19 from a 9

mm firearm. They later identified Sanders in photographs, according to the report. Another witness brought officers photographs of individuals they believed to be involved. The witness learned that Sanders went to that block with the intent to shoot another individual, who had previously been shot at. A casing from that scene matched the 9 mm casing recovered from the alley scene.

The other individual is still at large. Sanders is scheduled to appear in court Dec. 2. He is being held on $5 million bail. The maximum penalty for the charges is 120 years. Sanders, then an Apple Valley resident, was convicted of disorderly conduct in 2009 and felony robbery in 2010. Email Andy Rogers at andy.rogers@ecm-inc.com.

Dancers from Apple Valley school to appear in ‘Great Russian Nutcracker’ by Andrew Miller SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Students at Monique School of Dance are getting ready to share the stage with the Moscow Ballet Company. Twenty-four dancers from the Apple Valley dance school will be appearing in the professional ballet company’s “Great Russian Nutcracker” production, which runs Dec. 6-7 at the Orpheum Theatre in Minneapolis. The local dancers, ranging in age from 9 to 18, will be performing as the mice, snow maidens and butterflies in the show. They auditioned this fall in front of Moscow Ballet Company

ballerina Ekaterina Uksusnikova, Monique School of Dance owner Monique Kampa explained. “It was an hour, hour and a half audition at our studio, and afterwards (Uksusnikova) told us right away, ‘These are the girls,’ ” said Kampa. “Oh, the girls were crying – they were so excited.” The Monique dancers have been rehearsing weekly on Wednesday nights, with music provided by the Moscow Ballet Company. Full dress rehearsals with the Russian dance company are planned for early December. Kampa, a former ballerina with the Geneva Opera Company in Switzerland who’s been running Monique School of Dance since

1972, said the part in the “Great Russian Nutcracker” is one of many highlights for her school’s dancers over the years. The studio, which currently has about 250 students, has sent a contingent of dancers to the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York three times, beginning in 2001. They’re also regular participants in the St. Paul Winter Carnival parade. More about the Apple Valley dance school is at www.moniqueschoolofdance.com. Email Andrew Miller andrew.miller@ecm-inc.com.

Lakeville woman charged in baseball bat attack A Lakeville woman allegedly struck her husbandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s girlfriend with a baseball bat after running their vehicle off the road Nov. 12. Beatriz Angela Fernandez, 37, is charged with two counts of second-degree assault for the alleged bat attack. The victim suffered a temporal bone fracture and abrasions on her knees, feet and hip, the criminal complaint said. The attack occurred in the area of County Road 42 and Summit Ridge Circle in Burnsville, according

Frans said in a statement. â&#x20AC;&#x153;State and local leaders are working together to stop this decade-long trend.â&#x20AC;? Dakota County was among seven of Minnesotaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 87 counties to reduce levy amounts for 2014. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I applaud their efforts,â&#x20AC;? Frans said of those government units that lowered levies. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I plan to work with other cities and counties as they use these new property tax tools as part of developing our important partnership.â&#x20AC;? Thirteen counties had no change in their levy from 2013 to 2014 and seven more raised it by less than 1 percent. Whether or not those translate into property tax decreases for residents is dependent on factors such as home valuation and tax base. Dakota Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tax base grew by 4 percent, according to county finance director Matt Smith. The county is expected to increase its budget for operations and capital improvements about 14 percent from $292 million to

$333 million in 2014. This is 9.5 percent below the total 2010 budget of $368 million. The county notes that operating spending has been reduced by more than 15 percent since 2009. After recommending the addition of 20.7 fulltime equivalent positions in 2014, the county will still have reduced FTEs by 111.24, which accounts for an estimated $27 million reduction. Those new positions expected in 2014 include increases in 7.8 FTEs in Physical Development, 7.0 in Community Services and 2.5 in County Attorney. Other projects that are being funded in the 2014 budget include: â&#x20AC;˘ Remodeled libraries and the judicial center in Hastings. â&#x20AC;˘ Highway 13 and County Road 5 interchange work to be completed in Burnsville. â&#x20AC;˘ Implementation of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;No Wrong Doorâ&#x20AC;? Community Services program, which aims to broaden community points of access for county-supported services. Since 2009, the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s levy amount has increased 0.1 percent while the Consumer Price Index rose 8.9 percent. The county set the same levy amount as the previous

year in 2010 and 2012. For 2010, the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tax base fell by 4 percent, state aid was cut, 55 positions were projected to eliminated and salaries of top administrators was frozen. The 2011 levy was increased 0.8 percent to $129.4 million when the county portion of property taxes on the median value home was projected to decline by 50 cents as residential values dropped. For 2012, changes to the Market Value Homestead Credit were credited for 3 to 4 percent increases in the county portion of taxes for the median value home despite a flat levy. The 2013 levy was reduced to $129.1 million, which was projected to result in a $29.62 drop in property taxes on a median home. The six cities in the Sun Thisweek and Dakota County Tribune coverage area are projecting levy increases ranging from 1.5 to 5.7 percent, according to the various cities. For the city portion of property taxes, the increase from 2013 to 2014 for the average or median value home is expected to range from $10 to $30.

Domestic violence cuts across social and economic lines MURPHY NEWS SERVICE UNIVERSITY OF MINNESOTA

Since 2003, the number of domestic violence-related homicides have ranged from 18 to 41, and there is no way to predict what the numbers will be, said Safia Lovett, criminal justice program manager at Minnesota Coalition for Battered Women. There is no apparent age range or racial group that is affected more than another. Because of the variety and ABUSE, from 1A â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have motivational techniques that help engage them. â&#x20AC;Ś This could be the only place that they can talk about it.â&#x20AC;? The men must attend at least 23 group therapy sessions for completion. The program can be finished in about four months, but men can choose to stay for up to a year. Each session costs $5. Accountability and safety measures are in place, and participants could get dismissed for absences or not following guidelines. The men sign releases so partners can call for acknowledgement that they are attending the program.

Why violence? Violent behavior in a domestic relationship is most likely seen when a man feels like he is losing his significant other. It could be jealousy or awareness that she is trying to leave that triggers men to want to exert power, Milgrom said. While male batterers are usually trying to hold on to something, women batterers could become violent when they try to leave or get

inconsistency, Lovett said it is difficult to detect trends or predict where domestic violence will be in the future. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The only thing we can say for certain is that (at least) 60,000 women in Minnesota access services through domestic violence service programs, and statistically we know that only one in five report their violence and one in three are actually experiencing violence,â&#x20AC;? Lovett said.

Lovett advises the community to think of domestic violence as a public safety issue â&#x20AC;&#x201C; not a personal issue. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think we need to move away from thinking of domestic violence as something extreme that happens or only physical violence,â&#x20AC;? Lovett said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need to think about the whole spectrum of domestic violence, and as a community come together to talk about it and to tackle it.â&#x20AC;? It is up to the individual

in the relationship to define it as abusive or not, said Katie Eichele, director at the Aurora Center, an advocacy service located on the University of Minnesotaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Twin Cities campus. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the fear and alarm thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s assigned with arguments,â&#x20AC;? Eichele said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People can argue. People can get intense in their relationships. But if at some point someone is feeling in danger, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the red flag â&#x20AC;&#x201C; fear of your partner.â&#x20AC;?

Leaving an abusive relationship is often the most challenging task for the victim, Eichele said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It will take a person six to seven attempts to successfully leave an abusive relationship,â&#x20AC;? Eichele said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And the most dangerous time for women in their relationship is when theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re attempting to leave that relationship.â&#x20AC;? Defining a perpetrator is difficult because there is no specific characteristics

away from the relationship. Violence can increase after a couple gets married or if a partner is pregnant, Milgrom said, because â&#x20AC;&#x153;men see it as a threat for their attention.â&#x20AC;? Friends and co-workers of a batterer can be surprised to find out about domestic violence, especially if a man has good anger management at work but not at home. The attachment theory can help explain how people regard a partner in a relationship differently. Sometimes this vulnerability, attachment and shame can contribute to abuse, Milgrom said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A majority of men come from an unstable world,â&#x20AC;? he said. The absent father affects children. Girls sometimes try to fill this void with seductive relationships. Boys can go to different extremes, sometimes going into law enforcement or developing abusive patterns, Milgrom said. A majority of domestic violence cases are men battering women. Women can also be abusers, and there is an uptick in women committing violence on their

partners. Sometimes they might fight back and get charged, said Natalie Keifer, the domestic abuse coordinator at Lee Carlson Center. Keifer said part of this is that women who are being controlled and manipulated build up that fight or flight reaction. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shame about becoming abusive,â&#x20AC;? she said. There are few programs for these women batterers in the metro area. Keifer does some individual therapy sessions to address it. Eastside Neighborhood Services in Minneapolis is one of the organizations that offers a therapy program for women batterers.

abuse by either the victim or abuser, and even religious beliefs in the sanctity of marriage. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Embarrassment and shame comes along with it,â&#x20AC;? Keifer said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They blame themselves a lot of the time.â&#x20AC;? Emotional attachment is also a reason to stay. Usually, a woman has a lot of love for her partner, and she can hold on to the hope that it will change, Keifer said. Seeking help is difficult as well because often â&#x20AC;&#x153;the batterer will isolate the person,â&#x20AC;? Keifer explains, and â&#x20AC;&#x153;they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel like they can to go family or get help.â&#x20AC;?

Milgrom said one of the first steps in DAP is to break down the societal messages about power and male privilege. The messages say, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re superior and can control women,â&#x20AC;? Milgrom said. Boys also experience more â&#x20AC;&#x153;violent socializationâ&#x20AC;? growing up with societal standards of what boys should do. This is paired with hyper-sexualized images and representations of women that men are exposed to at a young age. The pornography culture is also damaging because it â&#x20AC;&#x153;creates a really fake intimacy,â&#x20AC;? Milgrom said, that also supports mainstream advertising and other negative images of women. Breaking down these messages is difficult, Milgrom said. But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a start. Anger then tends to become a vector or excuse for a man to â&#x20AC;&#x153;express violence and use power,â&#x20AC;? Milgrom said. Alcohol or depres-

or personality type, Eichele said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no profile for abusive people,â&#x20AC;?

Blazing Cats bag another championship CI Division team wins soccer title to go with softball trophy by Mike Shaughnessy SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

When he’s introduced before adapted soccer games, Stephen Friday takes the floor with a somersault, much like Ozzie Smith did in his heyday with the St. Louis Cardinals. When Smith did it before baseball games, it helped fire up the crowd. Does it have the same effect on Friday’s teammates? “Oh yeah, it does,” Friday said. “Every game.” Who’s to argue? Thanks in part to its somersaulting, athletic goalie, Burnsville/Farmington/ Lakeville won its first state adapted soccer championship, defeating Park Center 8-1 in the CI (cognitive impairments) Division championship game Saturday at Stillwater High School. The Blazing Cats won their second state adapted sports championship; the other was in softball last spring. Many of the adapted soccer players also were on the softball team, and Friday said that experience helped. “Just with teamwork. It brought us all together,” he said. The Blazing Cats rolled through a 14-0-1 season. The only game they didn’t win was a 4-4 tie against South Washington County in October. Burnsville/ Fa r m i n g t o n / L a kev i l l e didn’t get a chance for a rematch because Park Center beat South Washington

County 9-8 in overtime in the state semifinals. “I think the softball tournament experience helped because it helped the kids get used to playing in front of bigger crowds,” said Blazing Cats coach Shawn Tatge. “They might have been a little less nervous at the start of the tournament. “We came here and played North Suburban, Anoka-Hennepin and Park Center, three really good teams. For us to beat all three says something about these kids and the way they played.” The Blazing Cats’ three state opponents were a combined 27-3 entering the tournament. Brayan Estrada Martinez scored four goals in the championship game, giving him 11 for the tournament. Michael Burns, Logan Dougherty, Marshae Haley and Manny Desouza had one goal each. Friday had 19 saves, making a variety of scrambling stops and keeping Park Center off the scoreboard until the Blazing Cats had a six-goal lead. Dougherty and Estrada Martinez had two goals each in Burnsville/ Farmington/Lakeville’s 5-2 victory over AnokaHennepin in the semifinals Saturday. Burns scored once. The Blazing Cats beat North Suburban 12-3 in the opening round behind six goals from Dougherty and five from Estrada Martinez. Burns also scored for Burnsville/

Friday, Estrada Martinez and Burns were named to the all-tournament team. The Blazing Cats’ championship also helped them put memories of the 2012 state adapted soccer tournament farther in the past. Last year they went into the state tournament unbeaten and as the top seed from the South Division. Burnsville/Farmington/Lakeville lost in the semifinals and went on to finish third. Tatge has been a coach with the Burnsville/Farm-

ington/Lakeville adapted sports cooperative since it started eight years ago. Previously, the schools from those communities were part of the Dakota United program. It’s becoming easier to recruit students to the program, but there’s still work to do, he said. “I’d still like to have more numbers,” he said. “I’d like to have a (junior varsity) and two teams of 13-14 players. “We’ll have a lot of spots to fill next year. We lose a lot of seniors. We’ll lose Stephen, and we’ll

also lose Brayan Estrada Martinez, who’s one of the top offensive players I’ve ever seen in this sport. Those are two huge pieces, and who knows who will fill them next year. For now, we’ll savor what we’ve accomplished.” No one can deny the Blazing Cats have accomplished a lot. “I can say I was a state champion in two sports,” Friday said. “That means a lot to me.” Email Mike Shaughnessy at mike.shaughnessy@ecminc.com.

Dakota United comes close to toppling a dynasty Hawks lose by a goal in PI soccer final by Mike Shaughnessy SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

In all high school sports, but especially adapted sports, the opportunity to participate is supposed to take priority over wins and losses. “Tell that to my players,” Lorrie Buecksler said with a wry smile. Dakota United played in one of the most memorable championship games in the history of the state adapted soccer tournament, and Buecksler said the Hawks shouldn’t be ashamed about their runner-up finish. Still, she said, it’s difficult not to wonder how her players might be feeling if they had won. Dakota United, a cooperative that includes students from Apple Valley, Eagan, Eastview and Rosemount high schools, was close to ending Robbinsdale/Hopkins/Mound Westonka’s reign as state champions in the PI (physical impairments) Division. But the Robins scored two goals in the final three minutes for a 5-4 victory in Saturday’s championship game at Stillwater High School. It is the Robins’ sixth consecutive state title in soccer and 11th in a row in all PI Division sports (soccer, floor hockey and

Nicolay scored five of the Hawks’ goals, with Okke getting a goal and assist. Flores picked up two assists. Nicolay, Vervais and Meyer were named to the all-tournament team. Many of the Hawks are three-sport adapted athletes, and there could be more games to come against the Robins. In the 2012-13 school year Robbinsdale/Hopkins/Mound Westonka won state championships in soccer, floor hockey and softball, defeating Dakota United in the championship game in each sport. Buecksler, a School District 196 paraprofessional who was in her first season as Dakota United’s PI Division soccer head coach, said the team’s sense of unity impressed her as much as its ability and competitiveness. “When there were arguments among players, our older players always said, ‘Hey, we’re a family. We don’t do that,’” the coach said, adding that it should be no surprise that a team with that attitude was successful.

Senior forward Lindsey Coleman is having a torrid start for the Burnsville girls hockey team with 18 points in the Blaze’s first five games. Coleman, who recently signed to play for Minnesota State, Mankato, had three goals and three assists in Burnsville’s seasonopening 8-4 victory over Hastings and scored another hat trick in a 6-1 victory over Rosemount two days later. She has scored twice in each of Burnsville’s last three games and has 12 goals and six assists for the season. Burnsville is 3-2 overall after losing to Edina 7-2 on Tuesday night at Burnsville Ice Center. The game was to be a homecoming of sorts for Edina coach Laura Slominski, a former Blaze player. Slominski, however, is taking a one-year leave of absence after injuring her neck while playing hockey on Sept. 29. Dean Williamson is the Hornets’ interim coach. Briita Nelson (five goals, eight assists) and Paige Skaja (four goals, seven assists) are Burnsville’s second- and thirdleading scorers. The Coleman-Nelson-Skaja trio has scored all but four of the Blaze’s goals so far for new head coach Tracy Cassano, who returns to the South Suburban Conference after coaching the Chaska-Chanhassen coop team the last two seasons. Cassano previously was Rosemount’s head coach. Lauren Bench has played every minute in goal for Burnsville and has a 3.40 goals-against average through five games.

Eagan

The Wildcats will be looking for their first victory when they play at Park of Cottage Grove at 7:30 p.m. Thursday. Eagan was 0-3-1 after losing to Benilde-St. Margaret’s 8-2 on Tuesday night. BSM is ranked first in Class AA by Let’s Play Hockey. Eagan earned a 3-3 tie with No. 5 Edina on Nov. 14, overcoming a three-goal deficit. Brooke Madsen, Rachel Wall and Anna Krueger scored to highlight Eagan’s comeback. Krueger scored the game-tying goal with 1:21 left in the third period. Wall and Madsen led the Wildcats in goals with two each. Krueger was the team’s leading scorer with one goal and two assists. Katelyn Vrieze had a 3.75 goals-against average through four games. Eagan, under the direction of co-head coaches Kallie Cummings and Ryan St. Martin, will play Email Mike Shaughnessy at at Lakeville North at 3 mike.shaughnessy@ecm- p.m. Saturday in a matchup of schools that tied for inc.com. the South Suburban Conference championship last season.

Tyus Jones makes his call, is headed to Duke by Mike Shaughnessy SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

No one knows yet who will finish the 2013-14 season as No. 1 in men’s college basketball, but Duke likely nabbed the No. 1 preseason ranking for 2014-15. The Blue Devils’ prospects for next season became even brighter when two of the top four high school recruits in the class of 2014 – Apple Valley High School senior Tyus Jones and Jahlil Okafor of Chicago – announced Fri-

day afternoon they would sign with Duke. They made their announcements, one after the other, on a program broadcast nationally by ESPNU. Jones’ announcement also drew several hundred people to the AVHS gym. In signing with Duke, Jones and Okafor followed through on a pledge they made a couple of years ago at a USA Basketball tryout camp that they would attend the same college. They were teammates on a U.S. squad that won the Under-17 world cham-

pionship in 2012. “We had a final talk (Thursday) night,” Jones said. “We went back and forth, every day.” “We just tried to figure out what would be the best fit for both of us, where we could have an impact our freshman year,” Jones added. Duke and Kansas were believed to be the last two schools in the running for Jones and Okafor. Both also were considering Baylor, and Jones said saying no to Baylor was a little painful because he

has a cousin on the staff there (former Hopkins High School player Jared Nuness, who is Baylor’s director of player development). Minnesota was a longshot to get Jones, especially because Okafor was not considering the Gophers. Jones is the No. 4-ranked player by ESPN in the class of 2014 and the top-ranked point guard. Okafor, a 6-foot-11 center who plays for Whitney Young High School, is the overall top-ranked player. Needing to fight back

tears on several occasions Friday afternoon, Jones thanked his family as well as his teammates and coaches, both at AVHS and the Howard Pulley Panthers AAU team. He made the Apple Valley varsity team as an eighth-grader and became the Eagles’ starting point guard. He said he got his first recruiting letter from a college in the middle of his eighth-grade year. “That made me want to work hard and be the best I could be,” Jones said.

Eastview The Lightning is 1-2-1 in its first four games, with the highlight a 5-4 victory over Hastings on Nov. 12. Eastview trailed Hastings 2-0, 3-1 and 4-3 before taking the lead on Erica Geary’s power-play goal at 4:58 of the third period. It was Geary’s second goal of the game. Kellie McGahn had a goal and assist against Hastings, and Paige Suhsen also scored. Geary scored in a 3-1 loss to Hopkins on Nov. 14.

CRIME, from 1A

about the two hookah shops in northeast Burnsville. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to put anybody out of business.â&#x20AC;?

not forget that.â&#x20AC;? The fatal Sept. 22 shooting at Ninaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Grill and the related murder of 20-year-old Anarae Schunk, a Burnsville High School graduate who grew up in North River Hills, were fresh in peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s minds. Schunkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ex-boyfriend, 31-year-old Anthony Lee Nelson of Rosemount, faces first- and seconddegree murder charges for allegedly killing 23-yearold Palagor Obang Jobi of Savage at closing time outside Ninaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. Schunk was with Nelson at the bar, and Nelson is a stilluncharged suspect in her Sept. 22 murder in Rosemount. John Sleizer of Rosemount, a Schunk family friend, voiced frustration that Nelson, who has a long history of violent crime and incarceration, was allowed to post bail and walk free on Sept. 19 after he was charged in June with first-degree burglary. Schunk sought to meet with Nelson on Sept. 22 to recover money he owed her from when they

Other homicides Charges have yet to be filed in the other northeast Burnsville homicides. A 4-year-old boy was killed June 11 at his home at 31 Horizon Heights Road. Keyontay MillerPeterson died of complications from blunt force abdominal injuries, the Hennepin County medical examiner said. Police say the suspect is 24-year-old William Alphonso Warr, who had a protection order barring him from the residence. Warr was charged with violating the protection order, criminal property damage, fleeing a police officer, giving false information to police and driving after revocation. Warr, the boyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s boyfriend, pleaded guilty to all five counts and was sentenced July 17 to two years and two months in prison, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reported. An Aug. 13 shooting on the 2100 block of East 117th Street killed 23-year-old Abdifatah Ahmed Mahumod. He and another man were shot and driven from the scene by a woman who then stopped at the SuperAmerica station at 2250 Cliff Road in Eagan. Police found Mahumod dead in the vehicle.

2000, according to statistics supplied by Backstrom. Felonies bottomed out at 1,464 in 2010, rose to 1,714 in 2011 and dropped to 1,602 last year. But violent crimes in Dakota County â&#x20AC;&#x201D; ranging from murder to dangerous-weapons cases â&#x20AC;&#x201D; have risen from 646 in 2008 to 721 in 2012. Violent crimes jumped from 637 in 2011. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve increased annually since 2009, when there were 539. Domestic homicides are up across Minnesota, with 37 so far this year, Evans said. There were 18 all of last year, according to the Minnesota Coalition of Battered Women. Heroin-related crimes are on the rise in Minnesota, Evans said. In Dakota County, 35 to 42 percent of all crime is related to illegal drug use, Backstrom said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The heroin problem in Burnsville is an epidemic,â&#x20AC;? said resident Nancy Banyard, who said her information comes from her 20- and 23-year-old sons. A neighbor overdosed two years ago, Banyard said. She also expressed concerns over three group homes in her neighborhood and said she doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know the residents or why theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re there. Burnsville has changed much in the 20 years sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lived here, said Banyard, who called on police to do more to alert residents of neighborhood crime trends. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The amount of subsidized housing in Burnsville seems like it has increased tenfold,â&#x20AC;? said the former District 191 School Board member. Lifelong North River Hills resident Tony Boos asked whether growth of low-income housing over â&#x20AC;&#x153;15, 20 yearsâ&#x20AC;? has contributed to crime. Gieseke said he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have statistics to correlate subsidized housing and crime incidence. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everybody deserves a place to live,â&#x20AC;? the chief said.

Berenz. Absent: Chairperson Rob Duchscher. The Pledge of Allegiance was led by the Troop 235 Color Guard, comprised of students who attend Scott Highlands Middle School and Rosemount High School. Motion by Huusko, seconded by Coulson and carried, with six members voting in favor and no member voting in opposition, to approve the revised agenda. Berenz congratulated: â&#x20AC;˘ Members of the Rosemount High School Marching Band on finishing seventh at the Bands of America Super Regional Championships; â&#x20AC;˘ Jordan Kopfer, Eastview High School (EVHS), for taking third place in the state girlsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; singles tennis tournament; â&#x20AC;˘ EVHS boysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; soccer team on qualifying for state; â&#x20AC;˘ Football and volleyball teams, who are competing for spots at state tournaments; â&#x20AC;˘ Boysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and girlsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; state cross country participants, and â&#x20AC;˘ Students who performed at the Dakota Valley Choral Festival. Motion by Albright, seconded by Huusko and carried, with six members voting in favor and no member voting in opposition, to approve the following Consent items: Minutes of October 14, 2013 regular board meeting (Exhibit A1); Claims for October 9-22, 2013 (Exhibit B1); Electronic funds transfer schedule for October 5-18, 2013 (Exhibit B2); Schedule of investments for October 5-18, 2013 (Exhibit B3); Treasurerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Report for month ending September 30, 2013 (Exhibit B4); Contract with Telin Transportation Group, Inc. to a purchase one 12-18 passenger special education school bus for a total of $50,974 plus tax and license fees (Exhibit B5); Separations, leaves of absence and new staff (Exhibit C1); Set substitute and temporary employee additional teacher hour pay rate at $20 per hour (Exhibit C2); Set the adult and youth enrichment hourly wage rate range for District 196 licensed and classified employees at $10 to $26.28 effective October 29, 2013 (Exhibit C3); Agreement with the Minnesota State University, Mankato for clinical social work experience effective January 2, 2014 through January 1, 2017 (Exhibit D1); Agreement with Hiawatha Homecare for private duty nursing services for a student enrolled at the Early Childhood Learning Center from October 21, 2013 through August 1, 2014 (Exhibit D2), and Agreement with a teacher to secure an additional .125 FTE of services for a limited period of time for the remainder of the 2013-14 school year without the additional FTE becoming part of the teacherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s continuing contract (Exhibit D3). Bill Lauer, a partner at Malloy, Montague, Karnowski and Radosevich & Co., PA (MMKR), presented an overview of audit results for the Fiscal Year 2012-13 Audited Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (Exhibit E). Lauer explained the auditorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s role and summarized key financial results for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2013. Specifically, the report explained differences between the projected budget and the actual revenues and expenditures. The auditors gave the district a â&#x20AC;&#x153;cleanâ&#x20AC;? unmodified opinion, the highest opinion they are able to give, on basic financial statements. (Exhibit E). Lauer said on the Financial Statement Audit there was one deficiency in internal controls over cash receipts collected outside of the District Office business office and no compliance findings. He noted that with the implementation of FeePay, a comprehensive fee management system, the district has experienced a reduction of cash and checks collected at school site levels. Lauer reported the district received a clean opinion on federal award expenditures and no material weakness or compliance findings were identified in federal and state audits. For Student Activities, Lauer reported a clean opinion was received on receipts and disbursements. He shared compliance findings for internal controls and compliance reports citing the district records student activity receipts on a cash basis and controls are not in place to assure all receipts are recorded. During audit testing, one school had four of 36 receipts that lacked supporting documentation, three of 36 disbursements did not have two signatures on the check and one of 36 disbursements did not have an authorized check request. He reviewed fund balances, revenues and expenditures, and a 10-year history of the general fund. Lauer noted the districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cash flow was impacted negatively as a result of the percentage change in state aid being paid by June 30, the tax shift increase and the consequent short-term borrowing. Board members thanked finance employees and noted that although District 196 is considered an average-spending district in total, our district spends more than the state average on instruction. In summary, Lauer said the district general fund is in sound financial condition. The board is scheduled to act on the 2012-13 Audited Comprehensive Annual Financial Report at its next regular meeting. Director of Human Resources Tom Pederstuen highlighted terms from the two-year collective bargaining agreement with Rosemount-Apple Valley-Eagan (RAVE) Clerical Association (Exhibit F). On October 22, 2013, members of the bargaining unit ratified the agreement, which is effective July 1, 2013 through June 30, 2015 and terms include: â&#x20AC;˘ Increasing the salary schedules by 2 percent each year, plus an additional five cents in the second year; â&#x20AC;˘ Increasing the longevity schedules by 2 percent each year; â&#x20AC;˘ Increasing contributions to health insurance by 3 percent the first year and 3.75 percent the second year; â&#x20AC;˘ Increasing the annual contribution to the tax-deferred matching plan by $50 the first year and $55 the second year, and â&#x20AC;˘ Other minor language modifications.

Pederstuen noted the total cost of the contract is within the parameters set by the School Board and asked the board to approve the agreement. Albright announced he would be abstaining from the vote since his wife is covered by this contract. Motion by Huusko, seconded by Roseen and carried, with five members voting in favor, no member voting in opposition and Albright abstaining, to approve the agreement. Pederstuen highlighted terms from the two-year collective bargaining agreement with the Support Staff Association of Independent School District 196, representing custodial, grounds, maintenance and warehouse employees (Exhibit G). On October 17, 2013, members of the bargaining unit ratified the agreement, which is effective July 1, 2013 through June 30, 2015 and terms include: â&#x20AC;˘ Increasing the salary schedules by 2 percent each year; â&#x20AC;˘ Increasing the longevity schedules by 2 percent each year and an additional longevity step was added for employees with 8 or more years of service; â&#x20AC;˘ Increasing contributions to health insurance by 2 percent the first year and 4 percent the second year; â&#x20AC;˘ Increasing the annual contribution to the tax-deferred matching plan by $150 the first year and $105 the second year, and â&#x20AC;˘ Other minor language modifications. Pederstuen noted the total cost of the contract is within the parameters set by the School Board and asked the board to approve the agreement. Motion by Roseen, seconded by Huusko and carried, with six members voting in favor and no member voting in opposition, to approve the agreement. Albright reminded residents to vote on November 5 and announced election information is available on the districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website. Berenz commented on the School Board offices and levy referendum question that are on the November 5 ballot. Magnuson thanked members of Troop 235 for attending and commented on the role of the School Board. Motion by Schutte, seconded by Roseen and carried, with six members voting in favor and no member voting in opposition, to adjourn the meeting at 6:30 p.m. Published in Apple Valley, Lakeville, Burnsville/Eagan November 22, 2013 56357

It will take 25,000 volunteers and $1.1 million in donations, said Eric Elton, director of outreach at Prince of Peace Lutheran Church in Burnsville. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a very big undertaking,â&#x20AC;? Carr said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They just see it as a way of engaging community. And frankly, the timing couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be better given the recent disaster in the Philippines. We are in response mode to that.â&#x20AC;? Prince of Peace has packed more than 6 million meals for Feed My Starving Children in annual campaigns over the last six years, Elton said.

Honor Society. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s field trips from schools,â&#x20AC;? Elton said. The multichurch campaign will require 1,100 to 1,200 people for each of 23 two-hour shifts, he said. Organizers hope to find a single warehouse space of up to 80,000 square feet for the February event. Otherwise, two smaller spaces that have already been secured will suffice, Elton said. Churches committed to the project are Berean Baptist in Burnsville, Casa de Oracion in Apple Valley, Chapel Hill Baptist in Eagan, Christus Victor Lutheran in Apple Valley, Discover Church in Burnsville, Lily of The Valley in Apple Valley, Lord of Life Lutheran in Farmington, Prince of Peace Lutheran in Burnsville, Risen Savior Catholic in Burnsville, River Hills United Methodist in Burnsville, Shepherd of the Lake Lutheran in Prior Lake, South Suburban Evangelical Free in Apple Valley, St. John the Baptist Catholic in Savage, St. Thomas Becket Catholic in Eagan and Trinity Evangelical in Lakeville. Three more churches had been in contact with organizers but Elton said this week he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know if theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d committed. The group plans to have a Facebook page up by Thanksgiving, Elton said. Information about volunteering or donating can be found at the Feed My Starving Children website, www.fmsc.org.

its first meal shipments in 1994 to Rwanda, Haiti, Belarus and Paraguay. The organization pioneered what is now known as the MannaPack. The blend of soy, vegetables, rice and vitamins is packed into plastic bags and boiled in water to make a meal that provides a dayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nutrition, Elton said. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what volunteers will be packing in February. At Prince of Peace in recent years, packing shifts have taken on a festive air, with live music and interaction between the hairnet-clad volunteers. The church has attracted about 25,000 volunteers to the wintertime campaigns. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you do it and you actually know that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s making a difference for someone in the world, the tediousness is kind of forgotten,â&#x20AC;? Elton said, noting that most of the meals packed at Prince of Peace have been bound for Haiti. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re also working with people you might know or might not know, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great opportunity for conversation.â&#x20AC;? The multichurch campaign is also an ecumenical opportunity. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re really trying to learn how to do this massive thing together,â&#x20AC;? Elton said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What has been really fun is to see all the churches put their theologies and denominations aside and see people working for the common good.â&#x20AC;?

Buffalo dreams and maps of spiritual territory Burnsville author John Solenstenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new novel draws from Lakota myths by Andrew Miller SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Though itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s set in South Dakota, the inspiration for John Solenstenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s novel â&#x20AC;&#x153;Buffalo Grassâ&#x20AC;? came from his time in the Korean War. It was during his stint in the U.S. Army in Korea more than 60 years ago that Solensten struck up a friendship with John Good Thunder, a Lakota infantryman who gave the writer an insiderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s view of Native American life. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I got to know him and spent hours and hours talking with him about his life,â&#x20AC;? said Solensten, 84, a Burnsville resident and retired Concordia University English professor. The two soldiers were separated in Korea after Good Thunder lost part of his hand when a grenade exploded near him during combat. When the two reconnected back in Minnesota, Good Thunder was â&#x20AC;&#x153;pretty much a mess,â&#x20AC;? owing to heavy drinking. Solensten later learned, from a newspaper article, that his friend had hung himself in a Duluth jail. But the experiences Good Thunder shared

about Lakota life while in Korea served as the basis for Solenstenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s trilogy of novels starting with â&#x20AC;&#x153;Good Thunderâ&#x20AC;? in 1983 and followed by â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the Belly of the Horseâ&#x20AC;? in 2007. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Buffalo Grass,â&#x20AC;? published in August, follows a man who retires to a South Dakota ranch after losing his job on Wall Street. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a giant white buffalo on the property, and the manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dreams are haunted by the White Buffalo Calf woman of Lakota myth. Solensten, whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s published a total of five novels and scores of stories and poems, is the winner of the Minnesota Voices Award in the short story category and National Association of Writers & Writing Programs Award for novels. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s now completing work on a short-story collection titled â&#x20AC;&#x153;Madness, North Dakota: Stories from a Town on the Edge of Things.â&#x20AC;? The author describes the collection as 14 tales of eccentrics in â&#x20AC;&#x153;a town thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s barely surviving.â&#x20AC;? Solensten continues to write regularly, approach-

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Buffalo Grassâ&#x20AC;? is Burnsville author John Solenstenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s third novel set in South Dakota, a state he often refers to as his â&#x20AC;&#x153;spiritual territory.â&#x20AC;? (Photo submitted) ing the craft with a workmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mentality. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Writing is hard work â&#x20AC;&#x201C; nothing is romantic about it for me,â&#x20AC;? he said, who cites American authors Ambrose Bierce, Stephen Crane and Sherwood Anderson as some of his literary influences. The value of writing, and of literature, lies in the new horizons it opens, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We can only live one life â&#x20AC;&#x201C; in some ways thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a limitation,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But by participating in the lives of other people, we can move on to a deeper enjoyment of life.â&#x20AC;?

works School of Art in Burnsville. With the aim of representing a feminine view of the world, she and Tierney, who teaches at Brushworks, launched LaFeminine in November 2011 with a two-woman exhibit at the Burnsville PAC. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wanted to do something that would support women as artists and support women that really had something to say,â&#x20AC;? Schwartz said of launching the group. The groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s latest exhibit is subtitled â&#x20AC;&#x153;New Dreams, New Visions, New Directions,â&#x20AC;? and all three women involved selected works for the show that emphasized growth and evolution â&#x20AC;&#x201C; as artists

and, more generally, as people. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We all kind of agreed we were going to push each other in new directions and produce art beyond the scope of what we would normally do,â&#x20AC;? said Tierney. A third LaFeminine show is planned for the Burnsville Performing Arts Center gallery in 2015. â&#x20AC;&#x153;LaFeminine is a big idea â&#x20AC;&#x201C; how far it will go, we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know,â&#x20AC;? Schwartz said. More about â&#x20AC;&#x153;Metamorphosisâ&#x20AC;? is at www. burnsvillepac.com. Email Andrew Miller at andrew.miller@ecm-inc.com.
