Advocacy services work to combat, prevent domestic violence by Natalie Conrad SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Domestic violence and abuse are difficult problems to solve, but there is hope. Before or after law enforcement steps in, a variety of advocacy services are available to help victims break free of domestic violence, whether their needs are physical, emotional, financial, legal or otherwise. Burnsville-based 360 Communities has operated Lewis House shelters for women and children who have been victims of domestic violence since 1979. The shelters have helped more than 65,000 survivors over that time.

Survivor encourages victims to seek help to end abusive relationships by K.T. Bernhagen SPECIAL TO SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Nearly 40 people across the state have lost their lives to domestic violence this year, more than double the number of similar incidents reported last year. This series is focusing on levels of domestic violence, its psychological aspects and what can be done to help those abused behind closed doors. This is Part 3, which looks at local resources. A follow-up story to the series will run in a future edition. More than 2,500 women and children are supported annually at the sites in Eagan and Hastings – that’s nearly seven victims per day. “Once you start seeing those red flags, you should call an advocate,� Ann Sheridan, director of violence prevention for 360 Communities, said of 360’s trained volunteers and professionals who have prevented countless cases where violence would have escalated with-

out intervention. Among the first steps is finding housing. Lewis House offers temporary housing for victims and advocates who help give them a safe and affordable place to live. They also help coordinate retrieval of belongings or going back to their home. While food shelf services are offered, 360 Communities also tends to the See ABUSE, 17A

Shout out to grandparents

I am a domestic abuse survivor. I would not be where I am today if it wasn’t for the amazing people surrounding me. I was able to grow resilience because of the love and support I received from my friends, family and community. Speaking out about abuse is my way of giving back and expressing gratitude after escaping my abusive marriage. Love can be healthy, or love can be dysfunctional and dangerous. Love is not controlling. Love is not shame or blame. Abuse and control are not love. Adrenaline can trick you into thinking it’s love, but it’s not. I was in an abusive re-

lationship for 13 years. While I was in it, I thought I was in love. It wasn’t until I got out that I was able to see clearly what my life had become. There was never a frontal attack that I would have recognized as abuse. It was just a continuous stream of actions and words disguised as jokes. Jane Gilgun, a professor with the University of Minnesota’s College of Education and Human Development, calls it “kidding on the square,� which is putting someone down while presenting it as a joke. My example is a situation where my young daughter was sitting on the couch with her father. He looked into the kitchen at me and said, “Look at your mom. She’s so beautiful, she’s so hot. Too bad

Sometimes wearing union T-shirts, School District 191 teachers are signaling frustration over the pace of negotiations on a new two-year contract. All 750 members of the Burnsville Education Association were asked to wear their “United 2.0� shirts to work on Tuesday, Nov. 26, the day contract talks went to mediation. Negotiators for the Burnsville-Eagan-Savage district filed for nonbinding talks with a state-appointed mediator after six meetings with union nego-

tiators. BEA President Bob Nystrom said it’s “unusual� for either side to file for mediation that quickly. “That was at the end of October and the sides have not met since, though we have kept our calendars open and asked that we do meet,� Nystrom said Nov. 22. He didn’t rule out the possibility that a settlement could be reached at the first mediation session, which occurred the day this edition went to press. Chief district negotiator Stacey Sovine didn’t return phone calls. Salary is the sticking point, Nystrom said. “I can assure you that See CONTRACT, 18A

Volunteer trio gives one last year to Armful of Love Holiday gift program serving 1,100 families by John Gessner SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Bill McReaken served in the Navy Supply Corps and worked as a vehicle fleet manager for the old ConTel phone company. These days, the 70-yearold Burnsville resident is field general of the dropoff and pickup depot for the annual Armful of Love holiday gift program. McReaken calculates per-family storage space for the clothes and toys sponsors buy needy families. He knows the aisle width between storage rows. “You should see him with his blue 3M tape,� said Kathryn Archambault, volunteer and community relations coordinator for Burnsville-based nonprofit 360 Communities, which has run Armful of Love for some four decades. “What he can do with a ruler and 3M tape amazes me, let me tell

Man accused of stealing from vulnerable adult An Eagan man is accused of taking thousands of dollars from a vulnerable adult in his care. Muhannah Samir Kakish, 40, was charged on Nov. 6 in Dakota County District Court with felony financial exploitation of a vulnerable adult and gross misdemeanor financial exploitation of a vulnerable adult. According to the criminal complaint, Kakish had guardianship over a man who was living in adult foster care and was responsible for managing the man’s money. Instead of paying the man’s rent and personal expenses between Aug. 1, 2011, and Feb. 8, 2012, Kakish allegedly withdrew large sums of cash from the man’s account to gamble. Kakish was the only person with access to the account, and also transferred money from the victim’s account to his own. By October 2011 the bank closed the man’s ac-

count, which had a negative balance of $8,000. Upset he wasn’t receiving money for his personal care, the victim reported Kakish to Dakota County Social Services workers who called police. In an interview with police on March 19, 2012, Kakish allegedly admitted to withdrawing money from the victim’s account at casinos when his own accounts reached their daily limits. After taking the money, Kakish would transfer money into the victim’s account. Kakish admitted to falling behind on the victim’s rent payments and other expenses, but couldn’t explain why there were money transfers from the victim’s account into his own. If convicted, Kakish could face up to five years in prison for the felony count and up to one year in jail for the gross misdemeanor count. — Jessica Harper

An unruly crowd, a gun – and then chaos Man charged in incident outside now-closed Spoon restaurant by Andrew Miller SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Apple Valley’s Spoon restaurant has closed, but a chaotic scene that transpired there late one night last year has resulted in criminal charges for a Brooklyn Center man. Davonte M. Lynn, 20, was charged in district court Nov. 12 with felony terroristic threats for allegedly pointing a gun at a crowd in the parking lot of the Asian fusion restaurant at 14871 Granada Ave. According to the criminal complaint, Apple Valley police were called to the restaurant around 2 a.m. Oct. 27, 2012, on a report of 20 to 30 people fighting in the parking lot. Upon arrival, officers were asked by restaurant employees to assist with the out-of-control crowd, and police subsequently ordered everyone to leave the parking area, which was covered with debris, empty bottles, jewelry, glasses and other items. As the crowd began to disperse, two women approached police to report that a man – matching Lynn’s description – had pulled out a gun during the commotion in the parking lot and pointed it at the crowd before boarding a party bus. As the women were giving their account, other officers on the scene pulled Lynn off the party bus because he was yelling threats “to shoot people� out the party bus window, the complaint said.

Security personnel at Spoon confirmed the gunpointing allegation, reporting that the suspect “pointed the handgun toward several people in the crowd and then lunged forward twice,� causing people to flee in panic, according to the complaint. Though police located Lynn on the party bus, they did not locate the gun he allegedly possessed. If convicted, Lynn faces up to five years in prison and a fine of $10,000. The incident involving Lynn was among the host of police incidents and fire code violations on record when the Apple Valley City Council voted to deny renewal of Spoon’s liquor license in January of this year. Apple Valley police Chief Jon Rechtzigel told the City Council that since May of 2011 police had responded to at least eight incidents that occurred during “hip hop� and nightclub-type events at Spoon. During one call to the restaurant, police observed unlicensed “security guards� carrying loaded handguns while consuming alcohol. Additionally, Apple Valley Fire Chief Nealon Thompson noted a total of 27 fire code violations at Spoon in a two-year period. Spoon owners Kav Theng and Van Ngo sold the assets to the business last summer. Fiesta Mexican Cuisine now operates out of the former Spoon space on Granada Avenue.

Congratulations, concerns about school referendum victories by Joe Nathan SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Congratulations to the many parents, community members and educators who produced a record approval rate of local district referendums. This was a huge amount of work, especially in an economy that is challenging for many Minnesotans. According to the Minnesota School Boards Association, 51 of 59 operating levies were approved. That’s 86.4 percent, higher than any other year since the association began keeping records in 1980. Moreover, 23 of 26 requests for buildings or other capital expenses were approved – an 88 percent approval rating. “We presented this referendum as a choice for our community and are pleased with the increased voter turnout compared to similar previous elections,” RosemountApple Valley-Eagan Superintendent Jane Berenz responded. “We are thankful that two-thirds of participating voters chose to increase the community’s investment in our schools in order to maintain the quality programs that have and continue to make Rosemount-Apple Valley-Eagan a school district of choice.” She said that without the additional $10 million per year that the new levy will provide, the district would have had to cut the budget again by increasing class sizes and eliminating programs like fifth-grade band and ninth-grade B-team sports. “(Those) are key components of our district’s Triple A philosophy of providing students a variety of opportunities in academics, the arts and athletics,” she said. “The vast majority of people will ad-

Joe Nathan mit the value that a well-respected school district adds to a community and to individual property values,” she wrote. “In this election, a strong majority (67 percent) said they are willing to pay more to maintain what we have in District 196.” Similar support was shown for the Lakeville Area School District when nearly the same percentage of yes votes gave the district an additional $5.6 million a year for 10 years. During the decade since the district has gone without new levy money, it has cut programs like arts, fifth-grade band and high school industrial technology. Based on board priorities, the new funds will stabilize the budget, maintain programs and introduce science, math, technology and engineering opportunities. Other districts experienced similar success on Election Day. Mounds View schools’ $11.5 million annual amount will keep class sizes at the current levels and maintain current programs. Osseo’s $9 million per year for 10 years will help retain current class sizes, extracurricular activities, and longer bus routes. A second $5 million is slated for technology. “Voters understood the need and de-

termined that they supported the work we are doing to get improved student achievement results,” Superintendent Kate Maguire wrote. “Voters appreciated that the School Board listened deeply to community feedback last spring and took the $3.1 million in cuts for this current school year in places that had the least impact on direct classroom instruction.” Bloomington school will get an infusion of $6 million a year for 10 years for safety and security measures to better prepare, protect and respond to future school emergencies, and for educational technology to transform learning, and to engage and empower personalized learning experiences for all students. Hopkins schools will receive $3.1 million annually for 10 years for general operations and passed a capital projects levy for improvements to security, food service, technology and curriculum. Orono schools will use levy funds to expand world language program and improvements STEM education and college and career readiness services. However – and I mean no disrespect to all who worked hard and successfully to win approval for additional funds – I think it’s a mistake for the U.S. to be an outlier among nations in our reliance on local property taxes. The widely respected Organization of Economic Cooperation and Development reports that about 27 percent of education funding comes from local sources in the European and Asian countries it works with, while in the U.S. it’s 53 percent. This year’s victories add to inequities in funding that 2013 Minnesota legislators

were trying to discourage when they approved hundreds of millions of additional dollars to public education. For example, according to the Minnesota School Boards Association, here are varying additional amounts per pupil that some districts now have available to spend, based on approved operating levies: Hopkins, $2,319.43; Osseo, $1,989.29; Orono, $1,861.71; Stillwater, $1,536.47; Rosemount-Apple ValleyEagan, $1,485.95; Mounds View, $1,024; Little Falls, $948.11; Lakeville, $540; and Braham, $275.32. Greg Abbott, Minnesota School Boards Association communications director, pointed out that these figures do not necessarily reflect all previously approved levies. Trying to equalize opportunities, Minnesota’s 2013 Legislature approved, for example, more than $100 million to pay for all-day kindergarten in every district and charter public schools. Legislators did not want this research-based program potentially dependent on whether local taxpayers approved funding for it. Resolving these dilemmas is the subject for another day. Many Minnesotans said “yes” to more money and better facilities for public schools. That’s a strong affirmation, especially in troubled times.

Fifty years after President Kennedy’s death, youth never restored by Howard Lestrud SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

The heartbeat of the United States skipped a beat Nov. 22, 1963, when our 35th President John F. Kennedy at age 46 was assassinated on the streets of Dallas, Texas. It has been 50 years and that heartbeat of our nation has never been the same. We lost not only a sense of youth on that day, but also a sense of innocence. Many of our nation’s populous was not around 50 years ago but those of us who were have tried to keep the memory of a popular world leader alive. Even every president since, and there have been nine of them, have tried to capture some of that charisma presented by Kennedy, his young wife and their two children. The 50th anniversary of the assassination was not a celebration. It was a remembrance of memories we have of Kennedy and of the events surrounding the assassination. In the past few weeks, we have read about Kennedy’s administration and his assassination through books, magazines, newspapers and social media. Because of the beginning of Kennedy’s Technicolor presidency, we have been able to recall our memories very easily. Those of us who remember the four days beginning Nov. 22, 1963, recall

Sun Thisweek Columnist

Howard Lestrud where we were and what we were doing. Our younger generation, of course, remembers where and what as it relates to the terrorist attacks in New York City and Washington, D.C. on Sept. 11, 2001. Kennedy only served 1,000 days and his administration suffered some early defeats including the Bay of Pigs in Cuba. His administration received some honorable grades as it dealt with the Cuban Missile Crisis in October 1963 and as it handled civil unrest in the southern United States. On Aug. 5, 1963, during Kennedy’s presidency after more than eight years of difficult negotiations, the United States, the United Kingdom, and the Soviet Union signed the Limited Nuclear Test Ban Treaty. President Lyndon Johnson also spiked Kennedy’s achievements by pushing through key civil rights legislation in 1964. We were robbed of our future when an itinerant loner and loser, Lee Harvey Oswald, killed our president. The al-

leged assassin was also shot and killed by someone who could fit Oswald’s psychological makeup. Questions remain about Kennedy’s death and fingers point to conspiracy with more than 60 percent of the population believing Oswald did not act alone. Many conspiracy theories exist but none have produced convincing evidence.

The spirit of John F. Kennedy still lives but our country has not been the same. We have a country that is still seeking a way to live and laugh together. Howard Lestrud is ECM Publishers political editor. Email him at howard.lestrud@ ecm-inc.com. Columns reflect the opinion of the author.

Letters Supports park trail plan To the editor: As an avid user of Lebanon Hills Regional Park, I strongly support the proposed changes to the park. I am an avid user of Lebanon Hills – I hike and run the trails, mountain bike and ski. I feel very fortunate to be able to benefit from all the park has to offer. It really is a gem. I support the proposed changes because believe we need some more bikefriendly options. Eagan is not a very bike-able community. Although there are bike paths along the

major corridors and the power line trail, all of these trails are very hilly and not accessible to everyone who wishes to bike throughout Eagan. I have watched the use of the mountain bike trail grow with recent changes Dakota County Parks has made – improvement of the parking lot and more family friendly trail options. It has been fun to see so many more users of the mountain bike trail. I believe the proposed trail changes can only benefit users of the park as well as increase access to all areas of the park. I trust Dakota County Parks to make wise deci-

sions. I believe this master plan was with given great thought and that Dakota County Parks will continue to value the true nature of the park. VALERIE DOSLAND Eagan

where donors will direct their dollars. Because of technical difficulties, it took some real dedication and patience for some people to make a donation. However, that didn’t stop generous Minnesotans from giving more than $17 million to their favorite charities. From those who serve and are served by all of these great nonprofits, a sincere thank you for giving both your funds and your time.

savings for business

To the editor: As Minnesota’s economy continues to show signs of strength and growth, employers throughout our state are set to benefit from a new tax cut starting Jan. 1, 2014. Earlier this year during the 2013 legislative session, state lawmakers approved a cut to unemployment insurance taxes

paid by for-profit employers. The result is over $346 million in savings for Minnesota businesses over the next two years. It’s exactly the kind of financial jolt that will help keep our economy healthy and growing over the coming years. Unemployment insurance taxes paid by businesses support a trust fund that provides temporary jobless benefits to workers who are laid off. During the recent recession, that trust fund went into a deficit because of larger demand for unemployment insurance benefits. In order to make up for the shortfall and make sure laid off workers could still receive income to pay their mortgage, put food on the table, and support their families, Minnesota raised the unemployment insurance tax rate and borrowed funds from the federal government. With our state’s economy now on the upswing and new claims for unemployment insurance benefits down to their lowest level in about a decade,

the trust fund is no longer running a deficit. In fact, the fund now has ample reserves, which is why we were able to reduce employers’ tax rates in the coming year. We’re already hearing stories from businesses like Thor Construction Company, a Fridley-based firm that expects to save $500 annually per worker thanks to the tax cut. This is great news that Democrats, Republicans, and independents can all celebrate. It’s another positive sign that Minnesota’s economy is headed in the right direction – like a few months ago when we learned our state recovered all the jobs lost during the Great Recession. We certainly have more work to do to create good jobs that allow Minnesotans to provide for themselves and their families, but this is another step towards progress and greater prosperity for the middle class.

Speeches, songs, history at JFK event Dallas commemoration Nov. 22 honored 50th anniversary of presidentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s assassination the Presidential Medal of Freedom, quoted from Kennedyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s speeches and remembered him as a brilliant orator whose words inspired a generation to improve society. â&#x20AC;&#x153;His words changed lives, changed history,â&#x20AC;? McCullough said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He talked of all that needed to be done, or so much that mattered: equal opportunity, unity of purpose, education, the life of mind and spirit, art, poetry, service to oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s country, the courage to move forward into the future, the cause of peace on earth. ... He was ambitious to make it a better world, and so were we.â&#x20AC;? The event was staged in Dealey Plaza with a large JFK banner held high from a crane tower. Rawlings asked for a moment of silence at 12:30 p.m., the time President Kennedy was shot 50 years ago. Bells then tolled throughout the city. Music was performed by the 60-member U.S. Naval Academy Menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Glee Club. Bishop Kevin J. Farrell of the Catholic Diocese of Dallas gave the opening invocation, and prayers were also offered by the Rev. Zan W. Holmes Jr., pastor emeritus of the St. Lukeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Community United Methodist Church of Dallas. Many who did not have tickets to attend the event watched it on large LED video screens throughout Dallas. The event also served as a lesson for younger Americans on the presidentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s legacy. The entire eighth-grade class at Kennedy-Curry Middle School in Dallas attended the memorial after taking part in an essay-writing contest about the legacy of the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 35th president.

For a moment Friday, Nov. 22, time returned to 50 years ago on Nov. 22, 1963. More than 5,000 people witnessed a solemn 50th anniversary program in Dealey Plaza to celebrate the life, legacy and leadership of President John F. Kennedy, the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 35th president. Kennedy was gunned down on the streets of Dallas by an alleged assassin perched on the sixth floor of the former Texas School Book Depository Building overlooking Dealey Plaza. Many question the theory that a lone gunman, Lee Harvey Oswald, was the only person behind the shooting. Those embracing the lone gunman theory and those supporting conspiracy theories were out in numbers on the streets of Dallas last week to espouse their theories and to learn more.

IP, minor parties eye 2014 Third-party candidates face challenges, yet polls reveal votersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; interest in options by T.W. Budig SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Independence Party Chairman Mark Jenkins has those moments. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yes, some days I think thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing,â&#x20AC;? Jenkins said of running into walls. If he thought the party were a dead end, Jenkins said he wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be working hard to advance it. It might be thought the time is ripe for third parties. A Gallup poll in October showed 60 percent of Americans believed Democrats and Republicans do such a bad job that a third party is needed. A more recent Gallup poll showed Congressâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; approval rating at 9 percent, the lowest recorded by Gallup in 39 years. In a YouTube video, Jenkins implores voters not to stay out of politics because politics â&#x20AC;&#x153;sucksâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a condition he attributes to them staying out. He hopes that involvement translates into support for third paries, but he said a â&#x20AC;&#x153;disconnectâ&#x20AC;? exists between voter angst and willingness to support third parties. According to the IP Partyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website, all six leadership positions for the partyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2nd Congressional District committee are vacant. Political scientists, too, see challenges for third parties. Larry Jacobs, political science professor at the University of Minnesota Humphrey School of Public Affairs, said while many people donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like Republicans or Democrats, two-thirds of Americans have psychological attachments to them. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Research shows that even folks who claim they are independent usually end up supporting the party they â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;leanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; towards,â&#x20AC;? Jacobs wrote in an email. The â&#x20AC;&#x153;rules of the gameâ&#x20AC;? favor established parties, he said. The U.S. Supreme Court believes a two-party political system fosters stability, the court tending to favor the major

in each county and at least 5 percent statewide. Recognized minor parties are the Grassroots Party â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a single-issue party focusing on legalization of marijuana â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and Libertarian Party. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hopefully, there will be four major parties (in future years),â&#x20AC;? Libertarian State Party Chairman David Arvidson said. The Libertarian Party â&#x20AC;&#x201C; if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a Democrat and fiscal conservative, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a libertarian, Arvidson insists â&#x20AC;&#x201C; looks to field 10 candidates for Minnesota House in 2014. As minor-party candidates, these candidates need to gather 500 signatures over a set time period in filing for office, a process not required of major party candidates. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(Republicans and Democrats) have the power. They can do what they want,â&#x20AC;? Arvidson said. Arvidson views attempts at moving the state primary forward as a cloaked means of forcing minorparty candidates to gather signatures in the cold of winter instead of the spring.

parties, Jacobs said. Hamline University Department of Political Science professor David Schultz sees other pitfalls. For one thing, Schultz views third-party candidates bedeviled by a â&#x20AC;&#x153;spoilerâ&#x20AC;? dynamic. That is, people are reluctant to vote for them because theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doubtful the candidates can win. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re worried about their â&#x20AC;&#x153;worst fear,â&#x20AC;? that some other candidate they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like will slip in. Schultz views third parties as cyclical, tied to booms and busts in the economy. The unemployment rate in Minnesota in November 1998, when former Reform Party gubernatorial candidate Jesse Ventura shocked the world, was 2.8 percent, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. State revenue coffers were bulging. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jesse had a confluence of things going at the same time,â&#x20AC;? Schultz said of the big personality and former governor. There are currently three major parties in Minnesota, the Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party, the Republican Party of Minnesota and IP. Major-party status is conferred, in part, on a party candidate winning votes

$50 refund from the state. The public subsidy payment is partially available to minor-party candidates, according to a Minnesota Campaign Finance and Public Disclosure Board official. Third-party candidates can struggle in raising campaign donations, Arvidson said. This is shortsighted on the part of voters, he argues. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Your children are going to win,â&#x20AC;? Arvidson said of backing Libertarian Party candidates. Like the Libertarians, the IP will be fielding a slate of candidates in 2014. Jenkins anticipates about a dozen, including gubernatorial and U.S. Senate candidates. Former IP officials warned him, Jenkins said, that statewide candidates tend to be pragmatic, not announcing until the snow falls. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen snowflakes â&#x20AC;&#x201C; get out there,â&#x20AC;? Jenkins urged potential IP candidates. One criticism of the IP, Jenkins said, is that it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stand for anything. The party has been embracing certain issues, he said, and looks to the issue-driven millennial generation for potential IP votes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We definitely need to get people in (elective) office. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no question about that,â&#x20AC;? Jenkins said. Political movements come and go, Schultz explained. He credits the Tea Party with a successful transition from a popular movement to a force within the Republican Party. The Occupy Wall Street movement failed to make such a transition, he said. No one is talking about Occupy Wall Street anymore, he added. The Green Party did not respond to a request for comment.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Charting the Futureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; MnSCU forecasts changes for higher education access. â&#x20AC;˘ Certify student competencies and accelerate degree completion through credit for prior learning and competency-based credit and degrees. â&#x20AC;˘ Expand the use of technology to deliver high-quality online courses as well as technology-enhanced instruction, student services and individualized learning and advising. â&#x20AC;˘ Deliver comprehensive workplace solutions to build employee skills and solve real-world problems for communities and businesses across the state. â&#x20AC;˘ Redesign financial and administrative models to reward collaboration, drive efficiencies and strengthen access to an extraordinary education for all Minnesotans. Rosenstone is expected to talk about implementing the recommendations when appearing before the trustees in January. A number of trustees voiced their approval of the report. One spoke of Charting the Future as giving the permission to change. Vice Chair Thomas Renier called the report an â&#x20AC;&#x153;exceptional piece of work.â&#x20AC;? Rosenstone stressed it was part of an ongoing process. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The work is beginning â&#x20AC;&#x201D; this is not the conclusion,â&#x20AC;? he said. Higher education cannot continue the â&#x20AC;&#x153;fantasyâ&#x20AC;? that higher education funding will remain the same, and educators cannot ignore options, he said.

Minnesota State Colleges and Universities Board of Trustees on Thursday, Nov. 20, adopted a set of recommendations aimed at fostering student success, better use of technology and more collaboration among the systemâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 54 campuses. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We cannot walk away from our responsibility to think critically about the future,â&#x20AC;? MnSCU Chancellor Steven Rosenstone said prior to trustees adopting the recommendations. Rosenstone â&#x20AC;&#x201C; who was installed as chancellor in October 2011 and has spoken forcefully about higher education reform â&#x20AC;&#x201C; last fall instructed three workgroups, composed of MnSCU officials and students, to explore ways the system could better contribute to the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s prosperity. MnSCU officials heralded the perceived doggedness and thoroughness of the process â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 5,400 faculty and students participating in 108 feedback sessions across the state, according to MnSCU. But â&#x20AC;&#x153;Charting the Futureâ&#x20AC;? is controversial. The Inter Faculty Organization, representing 4,000 faculty at seven Minnesota state universities, earlier this year called draft recommendations a move toward â&#x20AC;&#x153;Soviet-style management,â&#x20AC;? according to media reports. St. Cloud State University President Earl Potter, Normandale Community College President Joe Opatz and other MnSCU officials, appealing to the trustees, argued the purpose of the initiative was not

to wrestle control away. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a tough idea to put your arms around,â&#x20AC;? Potter said of grasping the essence of Charting the Future. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The last draft probably had too many answers in it,â&#x20AC;? he said. Still, some of his peers remain nervous, Potter believes. Trustees, too, described the recommendations as tempered. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is not a power grab for centralization,â&#x20AC;? Trustee Margaret Anderson Kelliher said. But in a press release, the Inter Faculty Organization, while saying it embraces the values and commitment inherent in Charting the Future, states the report seems to pit local autonomy and decentralization against collaboration and collective power. Further, the report â&#x20AC;&#x153;implicitlyâ&#x20AC;? endorses a onesize-fits-all model, the IFO contends. Yet it also portrays the â&#x20AC;&#x153;coreâ&#x20AC;? of Charting the Future as solid. The six recommendations are: â&#x20AC;˘ Dramatically increase the success of all learners, especially those in diverse populations. â&#x20AC;˘ Develop collabora- Tim Budig is at tim.butive academic planning dig@ecm-inc.com. that advances affectability, transferability and

Charter files federal lawsuit against Lakeville City Council tables issue to seek resolution by Laura Adelmann SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Current Lakeville Charter cable customers could be on the hook for years of back fees the city says itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s owed. Charter Communications has filed a federal lawsuit against the city of Lakeville disputing the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s findings that the company violated its franchise agreement and owes Lakeville $565,928. The companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lawsuit demands a jury decide the case. Lakeville officials earlier this year asserted Charter should have been charging customers 50 cents per subscriber for educational and government fee and turning it over to the city for the past 15 years. At first, the city claimed Charter owed almost $1 million in back fees, but has since determined it can legally recoup only six years of unpaid fees at 6 percent interest rate to total $565,928. Charter officials claim the city relieved the company of charging the EG fee in 1999, and never asked for the money before, despite two audits since signing the franchise agreement

in November 1998. Charter has been charging customers the 50 cents per-subscriber EG fee since August, and according to a Nov. 18 letter from Charter to City Administrator Steve Mielke, will raise its rates in January. In the letter, LeeAnn Herrera, Charterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s government relations director, stated the company is increasing its rates to â&#x20AC;&#x153;reflect cost changes in the marketplace.â&#x20AC;? Charterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s broadcast TV surcharge will increase from $2.15 to $3.50, and most services, including limited basic and expanded service, will increase by $1; Latino View will rise from $5 to $6.99 per month. Repeated past negotiations by the city and Charter officials have failed to result in a settlement, and a public hearing before the City Council was held Nov. 4. Both sides presented their case, and the council directed staff to develop findings of fact that the company was in material breach of its franchise contract, which specifies Charter is to pay the EG fee to the city. The City Council was scheduled to pass a reso-

lution approving those findings of fact Nov. 18, but tabled action on it. Mielke said in a closed-door session, the council chose to delay action for two weeks to allow additional time for negotiations with Charter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Both sides would like to see the issue settled out of court, but there are differences between the two parties,â&#x20AC;? Mielke wrote in an email to the newspaper. He said he, Mayor Matt Little and city attorneys met with Charter on Nov. 22, but the two sides did not reach a settlement. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If we cannot agree to a solution, the council will decide whether to proceed with the findings and decision,â&#x20AC;? Mielke stated. The franchise contract expired Nov. 1 but in October, the City Council extended it to June 1, 2014, to allow time to resolve the issue. The issue is scheduled to return for City Council review at its Dec. 2 meeting. Laura Adelmann is at laura.adelmann@ecm-inc. com.

Lakeville soldier receives grant Money given as thanks for service by Laura Adelmann SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

A Lakeville soldier is one of three servicemen to receive a $500 grant from the Minnesotans Military Appreciation Fund as thanks for his service. Army Spc. Josh Lane, 24, was presented with a $500 grant at the Nov. 16 Minnesota Timberwolves game from the fund. The fund is a statewide fundraising initiative by the citizens of Min-

nesotans for Minnesota Military, a nonprofit corporation formed to raise money to provide cash grants to military members from Minnesota. Lane said he served four years active duty and was stationed with the 95th Engineer Company in Hawaii where he did training for his job as a combat engineer. He said the most difficult part of being in the military was being away from his family â&#x20AC;&#x201C; his par-

ents Shirley Fors and David Lane and five siblings. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was stressful and worrisome for them to have me deployed,â&#x20AC;? Lane said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They were relieved and thankful I made it home safe.â&#x20AC;? Military members recognized with the grant also received a Timberwolves jersey at the game.

Teachers bring their lessons to Minnesota Capitol by T.W. Budig SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Bring a group of elite teachers to a legislative committee and things can get passionate. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What an answer,â&#x20AC;? Senate Education Committee Chairman Chuck Wiger, DFL-Maplewood, uttered after Lee-Ann Stephens of the St. Louis Park School District, 2006 Teacher of the Year, lit up the room with her forceful depiction of life as a black educator. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exhausting. But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what I do every day,â&#x20AC;? Stephens said of climbing the educational ranks and yet being followed while shopping. To discuss race â&#x20AC;&#x201C; something the students at St. Louis Park High School do daily, Stephens said â&#x20AC;&#x201C; people need to â&#x20AC;&#x153;get on the other side of fear.â&#x20AC;? And her students are the â&#x20AC;&#x153;myth busters,â&#x20AC;? she said. Stephens was one of six former Teachers of the Year appearing before the

The Senate Education committee invited a group of Teachers of the Year award winners, including Lee-Ann Stephens (2006 winner) of St. Louis Park High School, to a hearing to gain their insights. (Photo by T.W. Budig) Senate Committee Nov. 14. The award-winning educators discussed and analyzed many issues. Stillwater elementary

teacher Derek Olson spoke of teacher evaluations. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a myth, he said, that teachers donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to be evaluated. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not afraid, he said.

Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the point, though, of evaluating teachers and gathering data if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not used to advance education, he said. Evaluations should in-

volve more than weeding out bad teachers, he said; it should produce better ones. Edina High School English teacher Jackie Roehl defended the common core curriculum in her discipline, bringing in social issues relevant to students. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a need for it, Roehl explained. Only about 5 percent of high school students are aware of the Dakota War of 1862, though the battle ground was the very land on which Edina High School was built, she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The death of literature isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t happening because of common core,â&#x20AC;? Roehl said. The achievement gap, the academic lagging of student of color behind white students, loomed over the discussion. The gap exists, Stephens said, and the idea that it simply reflects an unalterable reality is merely a washing of hands of the issue. Stephens spoke of the soft bigotry of low

expectations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The achievement gap begins at birth,â&#x20AC;? said Winona teacher Katy Smith, who works in early childhood education. Sen. Dan Hall, RBurnsville, questioned whether focusing on the gap and the interplay of academic, race and culture helped sustain it. Stephens disagreed. People are created equal, St. Paul teacher Ryan Vernosh said, not treated equal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is no one silver bullet,â&#x20AC;? he said of solving the achievement gap. There is urgency, though. By 2020, 74 percent of all jobs will require post-secondary education. Minorities constitute the growing population of Minnesota, he explained, yet in terms of college readiness, these students lag behind their peers. Email T.W. Budig at tim.budig@ecm-inc.com.

State is finding funding for freeways I-94, I-694, Highway 610 among projects to receive funding

next year when the Legislature reconvenes in February. Besides Bachmann, other lawmakers along the I-94 corridor expressed delight with the new funding. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This expansion comes after years of work by many strong, local leaders who advocated on behalf of hardworking families and business owners of the northwest suburbs who need a freeway that meets their real needs,â&#x20AC;? Rep. Joyce Peppin, RRogers, said. Rep. David FitzSimmons, R-Albertville, also expressed satisfaction. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m thrilled that the Department of Transportation is now recognizing that expanding I-94 between Rogers and St. Michael is critical for the economic and safety needs of our state,â&#x20AC;? he said. According to the I-94 Coalition â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which includes freeway corridor cities such as Maple Grove, Dayton, Rogers, St. Michael, Albertville, Monticello and others â&#x20AC;&#x201C; more than 1,500 businesses operate near the I-94 corridor between the metro and St. Cloud. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is an excellent start,â&#x20AC;?

Baack said. Starting next year, the plan should begin to take shape. Democratic Gov. Mark Dayton and Minnesota Department of Transportation Commissioner Charlie Zelle announced Thursday, Nov. 14, that 10 projects were selected to receive funding under Corridors of Commerce, a new program designed to pry open bottlenecks and better speed freight traffic along highway corridors. Dayton described the projects, to be funded by $300 million in trunk highway bonding, as a taste of what could come should Minnesotans rally around transportation funding.

Foreclosures plummet in Farmington Housing market looking strong by Andy Rogers SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

At the epicenter of the recession in the mid-2000s were foreclosures, but more than six years later, the list is growing shorter. In 2012, there were 223 foreclosures in Farmington. In 2013 from January to October, there have been 62, according to the Dakota County Community Development Agen-

cy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a significant improvement,â&#x20AC;? Dakota County Commissioner Mike Slavik said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People are getting back into building. Countywide, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going down, but Farmington has done much better this year.â&#x20AC;? Farmington isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the only city that has seen decreases. In Dakota County, from January to October, foreclosures decreased from 1,525 in 2012 to 820 in 2013. Notice of Pendency

numbers, which are filed by mortgage company attorneys to start the formal foreclosure process, are also down. From January to October 2012, there were 2,365. In 2013, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s down to 1,294. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s speculation, but based on the cases we see, we do know many existing clients are going back to work,â&#x20AC;? Dakota County Community Development Agency home ownership specialist Kwame OwusuAcheampong said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;More than 50 percent initially

came to us because they fell behind due to loss of income or reduction of income. Now theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re making enough to make the payments.â&#x20AC;? Increasing residential values have inspired homeowners to keep their homes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We hear them say they want to stay in the home because the value has gone up,â&#x20AC;? Owusu-Acheampong said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It makes more economic sense now to stay in the home.â&#x20AC;? Other reasons people

had for falling behind in payments were because they were struggling with their specific loan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Subprime mortgages were giving some people hardship,â&#x20AC;? Owusu-Acheampong said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most of the people we see now have fairly good terms.â&#x20AC;? The CDA anticipates foreclosure notices will continue to decrease. The foreclosure epidemic infected Dakota County in 2007 and peaked in 2010. The CDA offers free mortgage

counseling for individuals struggling with their payments. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Even though the foreclosure situation is getting better, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re here with foreclosure counseling,â&#x20AC;? homeownership specialist Shannon Gerving said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re struggling or have questions with the process, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re here.â&#x20AC;?

A Thanksgiving surprise for those in need Anonymous Lakeville couple donate $1,400 to help struggling families SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Multiple Lakeville families had a happier Thanksgiving after an anonymous couple donated $1,400 worth of Cub Foods gift cards to local schools to distribute to financially struggling families. The couple sent a $100 card to each of the 14 schools in the Lakeville School District with

a Nov. 16 letter that quoted Bible verses and expressed their desire to help others. They asked that the Cub Foods gift cards be given to a student â&#x20AC;&#x153;whose family is struggling financially so they will have a nice Thanksgiving meal.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some families fall through the cracks and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get the assistance they need,â&#x20AC;? the letter stated. Bible verses cited in

the letter sent to principals were Psalm 145:1415 and 1 John 3:17: â&#x20AC;&#x153;If someone has enough money to live well and sees a brother or sister in need but shows no compassion â&#x20AC;&#x201D; how can Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s love be in that person?â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Lord has blessed us and we want to pass on that blessing to others,â&#x20AC;? the letter stated, signed by â&#x20AC;&#x153;A Lakeville couple.â&#x20AC;? Lakeville School District spokeswoman Linda

Swanson said she cannot recall a similar donation in the 23 years she has worked in the district. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It warms my heart,â&#x20AC;? Swanson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It makes me know there are people out there who are generous and loving, and I hope they are getting a really good feeling out of this.â&#x20AC;? She said Orchard Lake Elementary Principal Marilynn Smith was the first to notify others of

the generous donation by posting a copy of the letter on Facebook. Other school officials replied they received an identical letter and gift card. As of last week, Smithâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s post had 287 â&#x20AC;&#x153;likes,â&#x20AC;? and there were 14 comments praising the Lakeville coupleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s action. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That is so sweet and thoughtful,â&#x20AC;? wrote Clare Rambo Jordan. Fred Scott stated,

â&#x20AC;&#x153;That makes me wanna cry.â&#x20AC;? Swanson said each school was distributing the funds in various ways, including one school that divided it into four $25 gift cards. She said the biggest problem is that they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know who to thank. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What a good problem to have,â&#x20AC;? Swanson said.

Waste Management of Wisconsin/Minnesota announced the completion of a compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling station in Burnsville. The site will initially convert 22 trucks from diesel to CNG, and will gradually convert the entire Burnsville fleet to CNG over the next several years. As an alternative to diesel, CNG is a more environmentally friendly fuel, significantly reducing truck emissions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Once again, the city of Burnsville can be proud of the progressive nature of our business community,â&#x20AC;? said Mayor Elizabeth Kautz. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Waste Management has historically shown strong leadership as stewards of the environment with their investment in environmentally friendly technology, like compressed natural gas.â&#x20AC;? Considered one of the cleanest alternative fuels available for heavy-duty trucks in the transporta-

tion industry, compressed natural gas fuel reduces nitrogen oxide emissions by up to 50 percent compared with diesel and reduces greenhouse gas emissions by more than 21 percent. Nationally, Waste Management is making a significant financial investment in natural gas trucks and infrastructure, having hit a milestone this year of 50 fueling stations, and developing new fueling stations each year. The company will continue to transition its fleet with the purchase of new CNG trucks, at a cost of more than $300,000 per truck. In addition to reduced emissions, CNG trucks are also quieter and lighter weight. The Burnsville site is the second CNG fueling station built by Waste Management in the last two years. Due to space limitations, the Burnsville site is not open to the general public.

There will be a performance by the North Star Brass Quintet from the 34th Infantry Division

Band and a video showcasing the efforts of the past five years. The event is free. There is no need to RSVP. The Farmington Yellow Ribbon committee has 25 members who meet once a month along with about 300 volunteers and student chapter at the high school. The group holds monthly veteran dinners at 6 p.m. on first Monday of every month September through May at a rotating location among 18 area churches and Dakota Electric. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We try to make sure weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve connected with every military veteran in the community,â&#x20AC;? Kuyper said. They also have a team of volunteers who help military families with a variety of tasks such as moving, snow shoveling, lawn care and house cleaning. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Initially it was to help families with deployed members, but we support veterans of any age,â&#x20AC;? Kuyper said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It has really helped our community come together.â&#x20AC;? The Farmington Police Department also informs

the committee if thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a military veteran in crisis. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve found help for a homeless veteran before,â&#x20AC;? Kuyper said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help financially, but we can connect them with resources. There hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been a request we havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t met.â&#x20AC;? The program is getting national attention. Last F e b r u a r y, Kuyper went to Washington, D.C., to visit with first lady Michelle Obama. â&#x20AC;&#x153;First lady Michelle Obama and her team want to get something started across the country,â&#x20AC;? Kuyper said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s become the national model for grassroots support for the military. It really was this group in Farmington that got it started and it was the success that got it started in the state.â&#x20AC;? It all started in Farmington about five years ago when Gov. Tim Pawlenty proclaimed Farmington to be the first Yellow Ribbon community. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a phenomenal five years,â&#x20AC;? Kuyper said.

TIES honors School District 191 educators Melanie Bryant and Jeff Hammer from Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School District 191 have been named TIES 2013 Exceptional Teachers and will be honored during the TIES Education Technology Conference in December. They are among teachers selected for modeling best practices in using technology in their class-

rooms to engage students in learning. School districts participating in the TIES Exceptional Teachers award program are members of TIES, an education technology consortium of 48 Minnesota school districts. Bryant, who teaches fourth grade at Sky Oaks Elementary School in Burnsville, has always

been fascinated with technology and likes learning more about it. She weaves technology into everything. The class tweets with Twitter and uses Facebook and YouTube. Her students use iPads for math facts, learning games and creating Thinking Maps. Bryant uses technology to get students excited and

engaged in their learning. She also uses technology as a tool for parent engagement as she connects with families through social media and sends text messages for quick reminders. She uses technology to collaborate with other teachers and shares work through Google Docs. Hammer, a science

teacher, is a technology leader at Eagle Ridge Junior High School in Savage who shares his expertise with colleagues, according to Principal Don Leake. Hammer was one of four teachers at the school to participate in the districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s instructional technology action research program. His project focused on how the use

of Google accounts and electronic devices can keep students motivated and engaged. He also secured funding to purchase Chromebooks for his and other classrooms at the school. His students regularly partner to work on online quizzes, to submit documents through Google, and other online projects.

Blaze skaters go toe-to-toe with Hill-Murray Borchardt and Boeser among hockey team’s returnees by Mike Shaughnessy SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Burnsville boys hockey suffered a blow when two of the Blaze’s top players chose to join Junior A teams this season. But no one is going to hold a pity party for the Blaze, and as it turns out Burnsville probably doesn’t need one. In its first game of the 2012-13 season, the Blaze went toe-to-toe with HillMurray, state Class AA runner-up the last two seasons. Hill-Murray won 5-3 on Nov. 21 at Burnsville Ice Center. Neither team had more than a one-goal lead until the Pioneers scored an empty-netter in the final minute. “It was a good effort. I liked how our kids competed,” Burnsville coach Janne Kivihalme said. “We had some problems systematically, but they showed a good work ethic.” Burnsville showed off some depth in the HillMurray game, skating three lines and six defensemen consistently against a quality opponent. Two of the Blaze’s top

returnees, Cole Borchardt and Brock Boeser, played on the same line against Hill-Murray with sophomore Eric Otto. Last year Borchardt had 44 points in 28 games for a Burnsville team that reached the Section 2AA final before losing to eventual state champion Edina. Boeser, a junior who played on the U.S. Select 17 team last summer and has committed to Wisconsin, had 34 points in 19 games. Other returning forwards include seniors Anthony Rikberg (19 points last season) and Nick DiGregorio (10 points). Kivihalme said Otto, a sophomore, didn’t look out of place skating with Borchardt and Boeser. Burnsville also could get help from exchange student Petr Havluj, a senior from the Czech Republic. “He was a pleasant surprise for us at our tryouts,” Kivihalme said of Havluj. “Now it’s just a matter of adjusting to the North American style. He has a big body and can be physical, so I don’t think it’s going to be an issue for him.” Senior forward Dylan Weigel had a goal and assist in the Hill-Murray game. Borchardt and DiGregorio also scored. Sam Dockry, a senior,

Seniors Sam Kersten and Nick St. Aubin, junior Jack Ahcan and sophomores Nolan Sawchuck and Sam Rossini also will see time on the blue line. Goalies Dyllan Lubbesmeyer and Matt Berger, both juniors, came

into the season with little varsity experience. Lubbesmeyer got the start against Hill-Murray and made 23 saves. Kivihalme said Berger also will get some starts as the coaches decide how to split up the playing time. The departures of seniors Tyler Sheehy and

Local swimmers shine at state

Teemu Kivihalme, the Burnsville coach’s son, to U.S. Hockey League teams created opportunities for other players, and so far they seem to be capitalizing. But there’s a lot of work ahead, Janne Kivihalme said. The Blaze played host to Rosemount on Tuesday

and will play at Lakeville North at 3 p.m. Saturday. “We still need to improve in all three areas,” Janne Kivihalme said, referring to offense, defense, and specialty situations. Email Mike Shaughnessy at mike.shaughnessy@ecminc.com.

Eagles expect tough opposition to help them AV girls skaters lose 5 in a row against ranked teams by Mike Shaughnessy SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Angela Le (above) of Burnsville and Deidree Voss (right) of Eagan were among the competitors at last week’s state Class AA girls swimming and diving meet at the University of Minnesota. Le, a sophomore, scored 30 of Burnsville’s 36 points at state by finishing third in the 100-yard butterfly and fifth in the 100 backstroke. Le also teamed with Alexis Dobrzynski, Sarah Jacobson and Sidney Christopherson to finish 14th in the 400 freestyle relay. Voss, Eagan’s lone state qualifier, did not advance to the finals in the 100 breaststroke. Eastview’s Chelle Watkins finished 15th in diving. (Photos by Rick Orndorf)

TAGS South takes third at state qualifier The TAGS South Level 4 team placed third and the Level 5 team placed fifth in the state qualifier at Legacy Gymnastics on Nov. 17. The Level 4 team scored 107.625. The team placed second on the uneven bars, led by Jaden Rivera of Lakeville who placed second (9.425). Maren Sundberg of Eagan and Kajsa Thrawl of Eagan tied for third place (9.4). Ella Hillis of Lakeville took third on the balance beam (9.0). Kailey Tomzak of Eagan and Athena Zahn of Apple Valley took second (8.75) and third (8.65), respectively. Tomzak placed first (9.2) on the floor exercise. Sundberg and Lauren

Foyt of Rosemount both earned 9.05 to round out the top three team scores. Sundberg placed second on vault (8.875). Tomzak was third in her age group with an 8.425 and Rivera was eighth with an 8.4. In the all-around, Sundberg finished in third (35.775) and Thrawl fourth (35.3). Tomzak received a 35.175 for second place in her age group. Other local competitors for TAGS South Level 4 were: Emily Renn and Carys Sundberg of Eagan; Ashtyn Gagner and Mia Richards of Farmington; Madison Zoellner of Lakeville; and Avery Doman, Alexa Erzar, Jaeleigh Eklund and Taylor McLean of Rosemount.

The Level 5 team garnered a score of 107.475 for fifth place. Cecilia Gerlach of Prior Lake earned the team’s highest score on floor exercise and second place with 9.275. Kailey Renn of Eagan earned an 8.975 while Hannah Maccarone of Eagan received an 8.725, earning fourth place in her age group. Gerlach and Isabela Krulich of Eagan went 1-2 on the vault with scores of 9.175 and 9.1, respectively. Ailey Kuehn of Eagan earned a 9.0 for second place in her age group. Kuehn placed second on the uneven bars (9.2), followed by Gerlach (9.1) in third. Renn finished with an 8.9 for sixth place. Gerlach led the team

to a third-place finish on the balance beam with her event-winning score of 9.1. Renn finished in a sixth-place tie with an 8.55. Both Krulich and Kuehn scored 8.375 for eighth and third places in their respective age groups. Kuehn won the allaround with 35.1. Gerlach was second at 36.65. Renn finished in eighth place with 35.025. Also competing for TAGS South in Level 5 were Olivia Gore of Lakeville, Keegan Messner of Rosemount, and Madison Nguyen of Farmington. The Level 4 and 5 teams next compete at the Peppermint Twist Invitational on Dec. 8.

Apple Valley’s girls hockey record isn’t pretty – the Eagles lost their first five games. A closer look reveals that all five of those games were on the road against ranked teams. For that reason, coach Don Erdall said he isn’t worried about the slow start. He did add that the Eagles are looking forward to finally playing at home at 2 p.m. Saturday against fourth-ranked Hopkins. “We have some returning players, so we decided to go out and play the best schedule we could,” Erdall said. “Until it’s February and it’s one-and-done, we won’t worry too much about wins and losses.” Some of the scores are one-sided, but the games weren’t blowouts from the start. In an 8-2 loss to defending Class AA champion Minnetonka, the Eagles trailed 2-1 midway through the second period. They led 1-0 after one period against Wayzata before the roof fell in and Wayzata won 101. They trailed defending Class A champion Blake by one goal in the third period before the Bears scored four times in the final eight minutes of their 8-3 victory. Last week Apple Valley took 19th-ranked Bloomington Jefferson/ Kennedy to overtime and outshot its opponent 10-3 in the extra session. But the Bloomington team won 5-4 on a goal with 48 seconds remaining. “Playing these games has given our girls a

glimpse of what they need to do to be able to play with those teams,” Erdall said. “And one thing we need to do is stay out of the penalty box. We’ve been taking too many penalties.” A lack of depth hasn’t helped the Eagles. They have 24 players in the program and are skating 11 players in junior varsity games. Also, one of their top players, junior forward Rachel Goodman, has yet to appear in a game because of a back injury. Erdall said Goodman could return in early December but won’t be rushed. Senior forwards Erica Power, Jennifer Thomsen and Katie Larsen return from a 2012-13 Apple Valley team that was 16-11, the program’s best record in close to a decade. Erdall said Power, who had a hat trick in the game against Bloomington, is a highly skilled player. The coach described Thomsen as a hard worker who inspires teammates. Junior MacKenzie Ess has played well at forward after moving up from defense this season, Erdall said. One reason the coaches made that change is the Eagles are solid on the blue line with seniors Meg Thelen, Bailey Hagert, Alexis Smrekar and Alex Daggett. Eighth-grader Sophia Leong also is seeing regular ice time on defense. “I’ve never seen a 13-year-old who was that advanced,” Erdall said. “She still has a long way to go, but I believe she will be one of the best players in Minnesota sometime in the next five years.”

MPCA likely to take lead on UMore cleanup State agency says Army Corps and U of M will pay for it by Tad Johnson SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

It appears that the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency will investigate and clean up contamination at UMore Park in Rosemount and hold the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the University of Minnesota responsible for paying for it. The corps and the university have until Dec. 19 to submit information prior to the MPCA issuing a Request for Response Action to conduct the investigations and clean up under its guidance, according to a Nov. 5 letter. The corps and the university had the opportunity to enter into a cooperative cleanup agreement, but the corps maintains it is not a â&#x20AC;&#x153;responsible partyâ&#x20AC;? for the contamination left behind from the former World War II munitions plant â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Gopher Ordnance Works. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We continue in our belief that the United States has fulfilled any obligations it may have with respect to the propSURVIVOR, from 1A I hate everything else about her.â&#x20AC;? Is this a joke or a slam? Behavior like this eats away your self-esteem and makes you doubt yourself. My abuser used this type of behavior to get to me in a roundabout way, then he would turn it back on me, telling me that I was too sensitive or too emotional, which continued the pattern of self-doubt. Everything that went wrong in our relationship was always my fault. My life became a game of trying to be two steps ahead of him. Because of

erty,â&#x20AC;? wrote Stanley E. Tracey, assistant district counsel for the Omaha, Neb.-based corps, which handles cleanup efforts for the Department of Defense and includes Minnesota, in a June letter to the MPCA. U of M General Counsel William Donohue said on Friday the university, which the MPCA says is the other responsible party, since other contamination is believed to be from former tenants the university contracted with and the university itself, would participate a cleanup agreement only if the corps participates. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We will meet with the PCA,â&#x20AC;? Donohue said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our goal is to deal with the environmental concerns in a responsible way.â&#x20AC;? In a June 26 letter, the MPCA wrote it is willing to initiate court proceedings and impose fines under state law to clean up the site and recover costs, but welcomed collaboration on the part of the corps and university. The corps said the terms of the land transfer in 1948 removed it from responsibility for any residual contamination. Donohue said that the corpsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; past practice with

regard to cleanup of such sites, including its participation in UMore studies up until 2006, shows it should participate in the cleanup related to the former munitions plant. About 20 years ago, the corps assisted the state of West Virginia in providing about $100 million in funding for the cleanup of contamination as a result of a munitions plant similar to Gopher Ordnance Works, according to Donohue. Donohue said the corps has told him they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have funds to commit to a project. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is a big piece of property in Dakota County,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The people in the city of Rosemount and Dakota County want it used.â&#x20AC;? It is not known how much it could cost to assess and remediate the property. The cost of the remedial investigation of UMore East was approximately $1 million, according to Donohue. A 2012 Patch news report said a comprehensive site analysis could cost between $8 million and $10 million, citing Dakota County environmental officials. Some possible avenues for funding would the For-

merly Used Defense Sites program or the Defense Environmental Restoration Account, which are allocated by Congress to address Department of Defense responsibilities, according to Tracey. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If the other parties wish to bring claims against the United States, they are free to do so,â&#x20AC;? Tracey wrote. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Depending the nature of the claim, it may be addressed using funds other than DERA.â&#x20AC;? Kathryn Sather, MPCA Remediation Division director, said the last time the MPCA had to take similar steps to compel a remedial action was prior to the 2007 cleanup of 3M company sites in the eastern Twin Cities. 3M acknowledged in an annual report that it set aside $117 million for potential environmental liability stemming from perfluorochemicals, according to a Minnesota Public Radio report. For a portion of 3Mâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work, about 2 acres of soil, 18 feet deep, was removed to a specially prepared section of the SKB Landfill in Rosemount. The portion of UMore land that has the highest degree of scrutiny is the Superfund area that is about 10 acres mostly

east of Babcock Avenue and north of 155th Street. This area is not part of the mining area Dakota Aggregates is conducting to the west. According to the Remedial Investigation Report for UMore East in 2011, the areas with the greatest environmental impacts appear to be consistent with historical Department of Defense operations, Donohue wrote in a July letter. Other sources of contamination are the university, which disposed of chemical wastes in the Burn Pit site, and from tenants the university contracted with that used the site for disposal of lead, copper and polychlorinate biphenyls, or PCBs, for about 20 years starting in the 1960s, according to the Environmental Protection Agencyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fourth five-year review of the site, which was completed in June 2012. Remediation work to protect human health has been completed on the site in recent decades, according to the EPA. The university has posted signs on some segments of the property due to the presence of potential physical hazardous and identified substances, according to

the Alternative Urban Areawide Review. The AUAR stated that Rosemount and Empire Township will require that any of these remaining physical hazards be addressed prior to redevelopment. The U of Mâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s three redevelopment scenarios, which could ensue in the next 20 to 30 years, show the land in question being used for residential, open space or industrial uses. Donohue said any cleanup would be done in conjunction with development. The EPAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s review said three areas need to be evaluated and have appropriate cleanup with regard to PCBs and other contaminants for it to be protective of human health and the environment in the long term. The EPAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s five-year reviews, the next one due in 2017, will continue to be required because hazardous substances, pollutants and contaminants are above levels that allow for unlimited use and unrestricted exposure. Reports regarding the site can be found at www. umorepark.umn.edu/ planning/index.htm.

that, I unknowingly became the buffer between him and the world. I was exhausted because I was living two lives: his and mine. I thought it was love. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. What I thought was love was nothing more than adrenaline, guilt and fear. Emotional and psychological abuse does not leave the telltale marks of physical abuse, but they are just as damaging. Violence often begins with emotional abuse and threats, and then moves to physical abuse. Fiftypercent of all women will experience physical vio-

lence in an intimate relationship. Many will never be physically abused until the last time. My ex was an emotional abuser. He used words and acts to make me feel worthless and powerless. He attacked my self-esteem and sought out my strongest qualities and tried to destroy them. He stalked me and used physical size to intimidate me. He also used money to control and scare, leaving my children and I without funds and almost homeless. His lies, gambling and abuse came to a head in 2007. I told him he needed to seek help for his

behavior. When he realized he may be losing me, he became erratic and threatening. Please remember: If you think you are in an abusive relationship, the most dangerous time is when you decide to leave. I turned to the community for support. First, I called the police. The Eden Prairie Police Department suggested that I go to Bloomington-based Cornerstone domestic abuse crisis program for help. I did. Cornerstone helped me get my order for protection. The order didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean that he was going to go away, but it

gave me an opportunity to define my safety needs and created a foundation for me to get out. Over the last six years, my order has been amended â&#x20AC;&#x201C; because he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t follow it. Held up by the Court of Appeals â&#x20AC;&#x201C; because he appealed it. Reissued every year â&#x20AC;&#x201C; because he violated it. Last year, the order for protection against my abuser was extended for 10 more years. There is no stereotypical abused person. You cannot recognize us by the color of our skin, the economic background we

came from, the clothes we wear or our gender. Domestic abuse can happen to anyone. If you think you or someone you know is in an abusive situation, there is help. There are people and programs designed to help and protect. Cornerstone also lists red flags and myths on its website. I was helped by both Cornerstone and the Domestic Abuse Project of Minneapolis.

SUN THISWEEK - Burnsville - Eagan November 29, 2013 17A

ABUSE, from 1A emotional side. Support groups meet regularly for both women and children who have been victims of abuse. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It can happen to anyone, but it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think people donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to believe it. There are a lot of abusive people out there.â&#x20AC;? The nonprofit is equipped to intervene and support families and victims by obtaining an order for protection, navigating the court system, setting up medical examinations, sorting out employment options and much more. 360 Communities trains advocates to help sexual assault survivors and provides support and services to family members and friends of sexual assault victims. They partner with schools, faith communities, service organizations and businesses to raise awareness about teen dating violence, bullying, date or acquaintance rape, sexual assault and harassment, and the effects and prevalence of domestic violence. Advocates teach students about peacemaking and conflict resolution, help them develop skills that stop violence before it starts and talk to boys about valuing and respecting women and girls.

First steps Partnerships between law enforcement and domestic violence advocacy agencies provide a holistic approach for helping victims, according to Monique Drier, a Twin Cities police departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s community liaison. Drier said a holistic approach in domestic violence cases can include visits by law enforcement to a victimâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home to determine the severity of the situation and reviews of the needs of both the victim and the offender, Drier said. While offenders face legal consequences for their actions, they need help to not repeat those actions in the future. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a holistic approach, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like sending someone to treatment with no help,â&#x20AC;? Drier said. Nancy Halverson, Hennepin County Department of Community Corrections supervisor, said offenders must complete domestic violence counseling based on the level of crime they commit. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We find if offenders complete their domestic violence counseling, they are statistically less likely to re-offend,â&#x20AC;? Halverson said. Project P.E.A.C.E. domestic violence advocate Tracy Becker said there is in an increase in the number of orders for protection filed by people with the help of advocates this year. The number of homicides related to domestic violence this year, 37, is one reason more people are requesting orders for protection, Becker said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People are taking that extra step to make sure that they are safe,â&#x20AC;? she said.

Always on-call Day One Minnesota Domestic Violence Crisis Line, a statewide program of Bloomington-based Cornerstone Advocacy Service, provides a 24hour help source. The Day One organization was founded in 1995, inspired by the stories told by survivors of domestic violence who reported making between eight to 15 phone calls to reach safety. The crisis line â&#x20AC;&#x201C; developed through a partnership between Allina Health System Foundation, the Twin Cities United Way and Minnesota battered womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shelters â&#x20AC;&#x201C; connects callers directly to their local advocacy service by using the callerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s area code. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are a lot of other programs that have a hotline that connects

to advocacy services, but not one that connects them directly,â&#x20AC;? Day One manager Colleen Schmitt said. If the victims are seeking shelter, advocates can use the Day One website to check for beds available at shelters in real time. This ensures victims get to a safe place as soon as possible and are connected to the resources they need immediately. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So victims only have to talk to one person who can provide the resources they need,â&#x20AC;? Schmitt said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no middle man. The advocacy service can then place a threeway call to an advocate at the shelter to reserve a space.â&#x20AC;? Since its inception, Day One has expanded its network to include nearly 60 domestic violence and sexual assault programs throughout the Minnesota area. Opening the Door, an initiative of Day One, improves access to services for variety of cultures, including immigrants and members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender communities. The organization has also recently been working to reach those who are deaf or hard of hearing. Day One also oversees the Minnesota Alliance for Family and Animal Safety. The alliance aims to reach victims of domestic abuse who are 50 and older and provide shelter for abused animals. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We get about 12,000 calls a year, and 2,000 are about finding shelter,â&#x20AC;? Schmitt said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The rest are about getting help. Every time, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re reaching out.â&#x20AC;? The Day One crisis number is 866-223-1111.

Preventing violence Domestic violence profoundly affects not only the lives of the victim and the perpetrator but also the children who have witnessed the abuse and have been victims. According to Cornerstone, children who have witnessed abuse learn that to get what they want, violence works. The advocacy service works toward ending generational cycles of violence and abuse by teaching children about appropriate, healthy relationship skills through Preventing Abuse and Violence through Education. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For domestic violence especially, we want

to make sure they understand power and if theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re using it to hurt someone,â&#x20AC;? said Barton Erickson, a school-based prevention coordinator. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Also recognizing the use of gender or feminine terms is key.â&#x20AC;? PAVE is in 17 schools in the Cornerstone service area. PAVE educators start in elementary schools to educate young children on family violence, self-esteem and healthy communication. In junior high, PAVE educators focus on agerelated issues around family abuse and violence in the schools. Educators not only focus on classroom presentations but work with students, both individually and in group settings, on family abuse issues, healthy relationships, anger management, communication skills at home and in school, bullying and harassment. In high school, PAVE educators focus on dating abuse and violence in the home, peer relationships and violence prevention in school. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For their first relationship ever, learning whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s healthy is really important,â&#x20AC;? Erickson said. Fairview Hospitals is a referral for more extreme cases, typically when significant mental health or substance abuse problems arise. Domestic violence between parents or relatives is commonly at the root of a studentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s behavior problems, especially relationship issues, and PAVE educators are prepared to contact child protection services. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Growing up is an extremely confusing place to be when parents both love and hurt each other,â&#x20AC;? Erickson said. PAVE educators aim to reach students through a variety of platforms of new media and technology. Erickson said their ultimate goal is to make things relevant and tangible and to make change.

Say something As a bystander, domestic violence can be difficult to ascertain. There are many signs and red flags. The biggest sign is controlling and manipulative behavior, according to Jamie Olson, the domestic violence prevention coordinator at a Twin Cities police department. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Abusers use power and control over victims, which does not limit itself to physical control,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s getting children

involved, physical, emotional and financial. Every abuser uses different tools to put power and control over the victim.â&#x20AC;? Once signs of domestic violence have been observed involving family or friends, the most important thing is to be non-judgemental, according to Bob Olson at Cornerstone. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Take the time to educate yourself about the dynamics of domestic violence,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s OK to approach them and ask if theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re OK.â&#x20AC;? Friends or loved ones of a victim or someone they think may need help are also encouraged to contact their local advocacy service or, more importantly, the police. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you see or hear something, call the police,â&#x20AC;? Becker said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s surprising to me how many people will hear domestic violence happen but not say something or call the police. If you hear abuse occur ... call 911.â&#x20AC;? Neighbors or family members of a person who they know or think is being abused can call 360â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s confidential line at 952985-5300. Until provisions are taken or a safety plan is drafted, it may actually be safer for victims to stay in the relationship. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When they leave is the most dangerous time,â&#x20AC;? Schmitt said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We can work with them prior to leaving, develop safety plans on how to continue and take control.â&#x20AC;? Picking up the phone and asking for help is the first step â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and it is not an easy one. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It takes a lot of courage to pick up the phone and make that call,â&#x20AC;? Schmitt said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It really is a process. They just need to know there is help in the community.â&#x20AC;? Domestic violence simply isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like other crimes, Jamie Olson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If someone steals your purse or robs you or burglarizes your home, you have no issues pursuing charges or cooperating with police, but when the person that assaults you is a spouse, a child, a parent, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s someone you share a relationship with, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not stranger,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important to understand that situation the victim is in. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a crime with a personal relationship attached to it.â&#x20AC;? Community editors Tad Johnson, Paul Groessel, Matt Hankey and Katy Zillmer also contributed to this article.

better numbers than in August when the two sides first met, Nystrom said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We believe thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s money there,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If we look in the past five years or so, the fund balance of the district has grown each year. We believe the district has the money to give us a fair and competitive settlement.â&#x20AC;?

The â&#x20AC;&#x153;United 2.0â&#x20AC;? shirts are a new version of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Unitedâ&#x20AC;? shirts teachers wore toward the end of the last contract negotiations. The union asked members to wear them Nov. 26 and may do so on other days, Nystrom said.

teer coordinators through experience and persistence. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I used to joke that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re the three that arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t smart enough to go home,â&#x20AC;? Bill said. He began coordinating gift storage 14 years ago, after his predecessor got married and moved away. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And it just kind of grew from there,â&#x20AC;? Bill said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We got bigger and bigger and I was taking care of more and more gifts, and then I finally took over the data end of it because I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t getting good data to help me figure out where to put everything.â&#x20AC;?

The storage space, where sponsors deliver gifts one week and families pick them up the next, is crucial. Armful has occupied a variety of spaces in the south metro area, from the old Lakeville jail to its current location â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the old Farmers Insurance space in the KrausAnderson building at 609 W. Travelers Trail in Burnsville. With 12,000 square feet, it accommodates gift storage for 1,100 families, up from the 940 Armful did last year in a smaller space in the same building. During his tenure, the program has served up to

1,500 families, Bill said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to have 10 square feet for every family,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That would be six square feet of storage space and the other four square feet are part of the aisle that serves it. It really works out that I generally get around 5 to 7 square feet per family.â&#x20AC;? Interviewing prospective families begins in October at 360 Communities headquarters. By that time, organizers must know how many incomequalified families they can accept. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still a bigger need than we can handle out there,â&#x20AC;? Mathwig said,

and unserved families who apply to Armful are referred to other agencies. The program has a supplemental gift room for items that sponsors may have missed or left off a familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wish list. The three volunteer coordinators are always willing to hunt for supplemental gifts, have them wrapped and add them to a package, Archambault said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Since working with them the last two years, I have noticed that there is so much that they do behind the scenes that nobody every realizes,â&#x20AC;? she said.

By the time pickup is finished on Dec. 15, about 245 volunteers â&#x20AC;&#x201D; 45 at 360 Communities and some 200 at the warehouse â&#x20AC;&#x201D; will have been involved, Bill said. Next year at this time, he and his wife would rather be traveling or relaxing. And Mathwig said she has two more grandchildren on the way. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I used to be a hunter,â&#x20AC;? Bill said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d still like to be. But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been eight years since Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been out in the woods.â&#x20AC;?

Michael Bolton

Singer finds new audience with YouTube hit Michael Bolton concert Dec. 3 at Burnsville Performing Arts Center by Andrew Miller SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Michael Bolton has won multiple Grammy Awards, packed arenas and sold millions of albums worldwide. But it was two days spent with The Lonely Island comedy troupe in 2011 thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s given the superstar singerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s career a mark of success unique to the digital age: YouTube sensation. First aired on â&#x20AC;&#x153;Saturday Night Live,â&#x20AC;? the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jack Sparrowâ&#x20AC;? video Bolton recorded with The Lonely

Islandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Andy Samberg, Jorma Taccone and Akiva Shaffer soon went viral on YouTube, and now has more than 116 million views. The clip proved so popular that Bolton, whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s set to take the stage of the Burnsville Performing Arts Center on Dec. 3, has incorporated an abridged version of the song into his live shows. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nobody could have guessed the enormity of it,â&#x20AC;? Bolton said by phone Monday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lonely Island is so much fun to work with,

Recorded in two days in 2011 and first aired on Saturday Night Live, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jack Sparrowâ&#x20AC;? has more than 116 million views on The Lonely Islandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s YouTube channel. but it almost feels like youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not working. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re just trying to do funny things. They were long, 17hour days (of shooting the clip), but everybody was laughing the entire time.â&#x20AC;? The possibility of a followup video to â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jack Sparrowâ&#x20AC;? has been discussed by Bolton and the three Lonely Island comics, but Bolton said theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not going to rush it.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to hurry up and throw something together because of the success â&#x20AC;&#x201C; that would be a mistake,â&#x20AC;? said Bolton. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to take us time to devise that, to agree upon it, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to take a sponsor.â&#x20AC;? And while â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jack Sparrowâ&#x20AC;? has helped to expose Bolton to a new audience, guests at his Burnsville concert next month can

expect to hear hits such as â&#x20AC;&#x153;When a Man Loves a Womanâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;How Can We Be Loversâ&#x20AC;? that helped him earn multiplatinum status. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I do a verse and a chorus (of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jack Sparrowâ&#x20AC;?) on tour, only because the people kept screaming for it,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You have to bring the greatest hits â&#x20AC;&#x201C; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a relationship with the audience that requires some

responsibility.â&#x20AC;? Tickets for Boltonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Burnsville concert are available through the arts centerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website. The Burnsville venue is offering 50 percent off the purchase two tickets or more on Black Friday; details are at www.burnsvillepac. com/black-friday.html.
