Attendance at center functions rose 11 percent, from 110,425 to 123,030. And the operating deficit, which management and city officials have been trying to slash since the center’s difficult opening years, plunged 37 percent — from $253,465 to $160,115. “Everything focuses on all of these numbers being better and better,� Mayor Elizabeth Kautz said.

Tickets are still available for the 8 a.m. Tuesday, Feb. 25, Exceptional Businesswomen Recognition Event, at Lost Spur Golf & Event Center in Eagan. People can purchase the $25 tickets by going to SunThisweek. com and clicking on the Exceptional Businesswomen link. Attendees can purchase tickets on the day of the event, but should RSVP by calling Callie Rendall 952-392-6808 by noon Feb. 24.

The arrows keep pointing in the right directions for the Burnsville Performing Arts Center, whose 2013 financial performance has center officials and City Council members smiling. Attendance and revenue were up, while the city-subsidized operating deficit fell sharply. “I’m never going to stop showing this chart,� Sal Mondelli, chair of the center’s citizen advisory commission, told the council Feb. 18. “I think it’s a testament to hang-

A pair of restaurateurs with their fingerprints all over the metro dining and bar scene are opening their latest venture at Burnsville Center. Business partners Linda Young and Charlie Burrows will open their fourth location of Luckyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 13 Pub in the former El Azteca space across from Applebeeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. A late May opening is planned, Burrows said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We wanted to be in Burnsville, and it just worked out thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s where we ended up in Burnsville,â&#x20AC;? he said of the mall location, which will include an outdoor patio. Burger and beer choices are abundant at Luckyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 13, as patrons of its locations in Mendota, Bloomington, Plymouth and Fargo, N.D., know. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I call it â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;American pub,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Burrows said in an interview. Business partners for nearly 20 years, he and

Young met while working for Champps. Young was part of a team that opened the Burnsville Champps location for former owner Dean Vlahos. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I love this city, and I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be a great opportunity for us,â&#x20AC;? Young told the City Council Feb. 3, when the council approved the liquor license for Luckyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 13. The 230-seat restaurant will employ about 100 people, Burrows said. Young grew up in the restaurant business. Her parents worked at the old Parker House on Highway 13 in Mendota. Her father, Axel, did maintenance and her mother, Janette, ran the kitchen, Burrows said. His and Youngâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first venture was Axelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s River Grill, which they launched in the Parker House building after the restaurant had closed, Burrows said. The Axelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s family of restaurants grew to include locations of Axelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bonfire, including one in Eagan, and Rudyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Redeye Grill.

Young and Burrows sold Alexâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and Bonfire to Nath Cos. in 2007. They still own the Rudyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Redeye Grill in Rosemount and Me & Julio, a Mexican and American restaurant in Hastings, Burrows said. The partners had already started planning their first Luckyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s before they sold Axelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and Bonfire, Burrows said. They razed a â&#x20AC;&#x153;grungy old barâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the former Mendota Saloon, a block from the first Axelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and built a handsome brick building. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always been about quality service, quality food, quality environment,â&#x20AC;? Burrows said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Those are the things weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re always chasing.â&#x20AC;? Young said Luckyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s is a â&#x20AC;&#x153;family restaurant.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fun,â&#x20AC;? she told the council. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our food is all cooked from scratch. Everything is homemade.â&#x20AC;? John Gessner can be reached at 952-846-2031 or email john.gessner@ecm-inc.com.

Perspectives offered by women in business Panel discussion aims to highlight successes and challenges by Tad Johnson SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

For the first time in the five years of the Exceptional Businesswomen awards program, people attending the recognition event will hear directly from the winners. In the past, the event has featured a guest speaker and remarks by the winners on video, but this year a panel discussion will highlight the successes, challenges and insights faced by these women. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is something that grew out of comments from past attendees who wanted to hear more from the winners,â&#x20AC;? said Krista Jech, marketing manager for ECM Publishers Inc., which is organizing the event through Sun Thisweek and Dakota County Tribune. With a wide range of working experiences, the women are expected to offer perspectives that will likely complement the stories about them that appeared in the newspaperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Feb. 20 special section. The section appears in select editions of Sun Thisweek and the Dakota County Tribune and is posted online at the Exceptional Businesswomen link at SunThisweek.com. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are very excited to have this panel discus-

Jech said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We expect the winners to talk about the challenges they met along the way, some of those related to womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s changing roles in the workplace.â&#x20AC;? The variety of stories is expected to be revealing, as the panel includes Audrey Aronoson Johnson, who was among the first class of women to be accepted in the HarvardRadcliffe School of Business for Women program in 1959, and Linda Radue, who was among one of the

few women in the vehicle sales business when she started six years ago. Though Johnson is above the typical retirement age, she continues to work with the Lakevillebased property management business Johnson Companies, and Radue is one of Volkswagenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top salespersons in the state and country. The panel will also include perspectives from small business and industry with honorees Karen DeVaughn of Life Well-

ness Center, which offers chiropractic care in Lakeville and Eagan, and Karen Wentworth of Lakeville-based Hobo Inc., which primarily makes chemicals for the car wash and agricultural industries. Innovative Office Solutions co-founder and CEO Jennifer Smith will talk about her journey to build a small company into one of the most prominent office product suppliers in the country. Roz Peterson will talk

about how she balances her business and civic interests as broker for Cerron Commercial Properties, a member of the Lakeville Area School Board, active volunteer with area chambers and political candidate. Kari Mitchell of Rosemount-based Charity Events of Minnesota will offer her perspective from the nonprofit world as sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s raised millions of dollars over the years to fund research and other services for those affected by such fatal diseases as cancer and AIDS. Other award winners this year are Diane Lindo and Lara Kelley of the Minnesota School of Beauty and Stacey Marmolejo, of Eagan-based Rock Mammas. The panel discussion will be moderated by Catherine Byers Breet, a 2013 Exceptional Businesswomen honoree, who is chief stripe changer at ARBEZ Inc., a company she founded that coaches job seekers to find their true callings. Breet, an Eagan resident for 12 years, is a motivational speaker, developer of the Dream Job Workshop Series and has led countless discussions like the one expected Tuesday. She has encouraged people to tap into their

thoughts about the perfect career through individual sessions, workshops and the Easter Job Transitions Group at Easter Lutheran Church in Eagan. Her goal is to help people find a career to thrive in and truly be happy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most people spend their lives stifling that roar, trying to fit into other peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plans,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Every single one of us has something special to offer this world, and when we finally acknowledge our unique gifts, and give ourselves permission to be great, we can change the world.â&#x20AC;? Breet has gone through career transitions on her own. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spent time as a summer camp counselor, tour guide, flight attendant and sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s traveled the world. For nine years she worked as a corporate recruiter and â&#x20AC;&#x153;headhunter,â&#x20AC;? but felt the urge to go out on her own. In 2006 she launched ARBEZ, which provides tools, customized training and solutions for career counselors, corporations, higher education and organizations. ARBEZ, zebra spelled backward, believes people can change their stripes. Email Tad Johnson at tad.johnson@ecm-inc.com.

Eagan man gets six months in drug deal-turned-robbery An Eagan man will spend six months in jail for his role in a drug dealturned-robbery. Joey James Brown, 20, was sentenced on Feb. 4 to 180 days in jail with credit for 3 days served. Upon his release, Brown will serve seven yearsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; probation. Brown and another Eagan man, Paul Earnest McWilliams Jr., 20, robbed a man at gunpoint and assaulted him after

agreeing to sell the victim marijuana. The two men, and possibly another accomplice, forced the victim into a car and drove to a bank where they had him withdraw $300. The men dropped the victim off at the apartment parking lot where they met, and he called police. Brown was charged in August 2012 and convicted in October 2013 of first-

degree aggravated robbery, second-degree assault with a dangerous weapon and felony kidnaping. A charge of kidnapping to commit great bodily harm was dismissed. McWilliams pleaded guilty in September 2012 and was sentenced in March 2013 to three years in prison. No arrests were made in connection to a possible third accomplice. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Jessica Harper

4A February 21, 2014 SUN THISWEEK - Burnsville - Eagan

Opinion

Use state bonding dollars wisely If you had a billion dollars to spend on any public project within Minnesota, what would you choose? Would you spend $5 million to build a new security fence around the Shakopee prison, $500,000 for “pre-design” design, to improve and renovate historic Fort Snelling or $10 million to preserve public housing for low-income families? Should $20 million go to Minneapolis to spruce up the Nicollet Mall? Or maybe $7 million for the sculpture garden, to help the spoon get its shine back? How about $37 million for the Mayo Civic Center in Rochester, $800,000 to restore the Carnegie Library in Bemidji, $5 million for an Asian carp barrier in Coon Rapids, or $3.1 million for a bike trail in Becker County? These are all real projects submitted to the state department of finance to be included in the 2014 bonding bill. Traditionally in Minnesota, the oddnumbered year is budget time for state lawmakers. They approve a two-year budget that covers revenues, expenses and all of the costs needed to keep our government running. The even-numbered year – here we are, 2014 – is a bonding year. Bonding is a government word for borrowing money. Minnesotans borrow money to buy a car, a boat or a snowmobile. It’s the same

ECM Editorial thing. We take out a mortgage to buy a house or frivolously max out credit cards at 22 percent interest on things we don’t need. Government can do the same – spend wisely, spend foolishly or choose to not spend at all. The most recent state revenue report was quite good. The state is showing a surplus and might actually have a few extra million that can be put away for a rainy day. So now, back to the question: Where would you spend a billion dollars? Would you pick only projects within 10 miles of your home, so you personally could benefit? Would you concentrate all of the spending in the Twin Cities? Would you want to spread out the money, so everyone from Cambridge to Caledonia, from Lakeville to Little Falls, from Bloomington to Baudette, got a piece of the pie? Would you place priority on projects that enhanced the safety of our residents? Or would you pick the projects based on entertainment and recreation? Would you favor dull but necessary projects such as correcting waste-water discharge

issues? Or might you pick $8 million to build an arts center? Our state’s leaders will soon have to answer those questions. The initial “wish list” included over $4 billion in project requests. Gov. Mark Dayton wanted to narrow the list to about $1 billion and his official recommendation came in just under that at $986 million. As the 2014 legislative session approaches, the structure and composition of the project list will be a huge topic. Legislative leaders will bring at least two, if not four versions of the spending list into the debate. House Republicans will not have the same list as House Democrats. Senate Republicans and Democrats will differ from each other. All four groups may have lists totally different from the governor’s. This is indeed a topic where each Minnesotan should send a message to his or her legislator, suggesting priorities and specific needs. Is $1 billion about the right total? Or is it way too much? Should we borrow half that? Maybe you think we should go all out right now, while interest rates are low, and borrow a couple of extra billion dollars to fix dilapidated and dangerous rural bridges? As an editorial board, we support one project whole-hardheartedly: Our

incredibly beautiful State Capitol building, designed by renowned architect Cass Gilbert, needs to be fully reconstructed and renovated so the building stands glorious and strong generations from now. We urge lawmakers to continue their bipartisan support and approve the $126 million needed to preserve our Capitol. As for the many other worthy projects, we would offer these suggestions: Projects that benefit the whole state should have priority over local-only requests. Public safety needs to be high on the list – for example, bridges that are dangerous should be repaired or replaced. Be practical, placing “needs” over “wants.” Can we afford to enhance an art center before we fix rotting walls at a state prison? Finally, be frugal over fanciful. Our state and nation’s economy is still in recovery, we still see ups and downs in financial markets. Job growth continues, but yet many are unemployed. How should we spend a billion dollars? Wisely. This is an opinion from the ECM Publishers Editorial Board. Sun Thisweek and the Dakota County Tribune are part of ECM Publishers.

Education columnist inspires changes by Don Heinzman SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Joe Nathan’s weekly columns published by this newspaper are making a difference, potentially helping save families of college-bound students millions of dollars while helping improve public schools. ECM Publishers is proud to publish Nathan’s columns. His messages are shaking up content on state and school district websites, getting out information that state law requires schools to distribute. Nathan, director of the Center for School Change and author of two books, is a former award-winning Minnesota public school teacher, administrator and PTA president. He’s a frequent commentator on local and national radio and television. He helped write the Post-Secondary Enrollment Options legislation, which enables sophomores, juniors and seniors to take college courses while they are in high school. High school students can earn a year of college credit, or more, thus saving on costly college tuition. Nathan is determined that the Minnesota Department of Education and school superintendents obey the law and provide complete information for 10th graders who are eligible to take these college classes for the first time. While monitoring the Department of Education website, Nathan saw incomplete information about the 10th-grade career and technical PSEO option that the Legislature approved in 2012. He wrote about it in his column and contacted Education Commissioner Brenda Cassellius, who directed that more complete information be provided on the

state’s website. Earlier she had encouraged school superintendents to provide information about dual-credit courses by March 1, as required by state law. What vital information about postsecondary options is revealed in these changes? • Low-income families can get funds from the state to pay for their child’s transportation to take PSEO courses at four-year universities and two-year community or technical schools. • Tenth-graders who have passed the state’s eighth-grade reading test are eligible to take a free career and technical college course. If they earn a C grade or better on their first semester course, they can take additional classes in the second semester. • Some PSEO courses also are online. Contact the Department of Education with questions about dual-credit courses. The department’s Web page with PSEO information is at bit.ly/1nubZ1H. To Cassellius’ credit, after reading Nathan’s concerns about lack of updated information on the department website, she had it changed. Nathan monitored 61 websites, mostly in ECM’s reader area, and noticed many of them, too, had incomplete information about PSEO opportunities for 10th graders. He contacted school district

superintendents before he wrote his column. Some said they didn’t know their website information was incomplete and thanked him for the alert. Last month, Nathan also looked at more than 25 Minnesota two-year college websites and found that almost half did not mention the 10th-grade career tech option. He contacted Minnesota State Colleges and Universities Chancellor Steve Rosenstone. Again, to Rosenstone’s credit, updates were completed. Nathan regrets there is such a disconnect between the time laws are passed and when complete information about the law is put on school district websites. Nathan says he is determined to spread the word about dual-credit courses, including Advanced Placement, College in the Schools and PSEO, because research shows students who take these classes can save thousands of dollars and are almost twice as likely to graduate from some form of higher education. On another front, Nathan is pressuring the Minnesota Department of Education, Minnesota Office of Higher Education and administrators of Minnesota public colleges and universities to obey the state law and release the figures for how many Minnesota students from each public high school are taking remedial courses in college. State law requires the Department of Education and the public post-secondary groups to work together to produce an annual report on this. But despite the requirement that there be a yearly, public report, no study has been produced since 2011. He continues to ask the department and Office of Higher Education, which apparently has taken over for the public

university officials, about the study. This report is important because the state’s educators need to know how many public high school graduates are taking remedial courses so they can change strategies to reduce that number. Parents also should be concerned because they might be paying the costs for their students to take these remedial courses taught in college. They also can compare remediation rates for various high schools. Nathan cites research showing that nationally only 25 percent of students who have to take remedial courses in two-year colleges earn an associate degree in eight years. He says that, according to the Minnesota Office of Higher Education, 22 percent of full-time, newly enrolled students graduate, on average, from Minnesota state public colleges and universities system members in four years, compared to the 48 percent who graduate in six years, in part because they had to take remedial courses and had problems with post-secondary education costs. Nathan’s agenda going forward as he writes columns is to have more students graduate from high school, have fewer high school students need to take remedial courses in college and boost the rate of one-, two- or four-year college graduates. ECM Publishers is pleased to partner with Nathan as he writes well-documented columns that get results and improve the quality of education of students.

Letters 2014 session a chance to grow economy To the editor: The 2014 legislative session is just around the corner, with activity picking up at the Capitol. In the 2013 session we balanced the budget and made historic investments in education — all-day kindergarten, early childhood, and college tuition freeze — and job creation. With no budget crisis to resolve

and an $825 million surplus, the focus shifts to reform and continuing to grow our economy. As many of you are aware, I’m chief authoring legislation to repeal the warehouse tax. This is an issue that has drawn broad bipartisan support and it’s my hope that by working together, we can repeal this tax before it impacts the bottom line for Minnesota businesses. It’s also important that we maintain a structur-

ally and honestly balanced budget — which is a top priority for Minnesotans. If the current projected surplus holds, we will be able to repeal the tax in a fiscally responsible manner. This session I’m supporting an increase in the state’s minimum wage. Last session I voted for a House bill raising the minimum wage in increments to $9.50 for large employers and $8.50 for small employers.

Most of the people on public assistance programs have jobs and are getting paid the minimum wage, with many of them in the service, health care, and retail industries. By increasing the minimum wage, these families will have more money in their pockets and can hopefully get off public assistance, saving the state money. Today, Minnesotans working the minimum wage are earning less in inflation-adjusted dollars than minimum wage workers in 1974. We have to ensure that hard work pays for all Minnesotans. With a growing economy, stable budget, and investments made for our future, Minnesota is on the right track and continuing to move forward, but we know we have more work to do. I look forward to continuing that work when the 2014 session begins on Feb. 25.

As always, please feel free to contact me with any comments, questions, or ideas. Thank you for the honor of being your voice at the State Capitol. Rep. Laurie Halverson DFL-Eagan, District 51B

Private sector vs. government To the editor: I have been thinking about the guest column by state Sen. Dan Hall, RBurnsville, from the Feb. 7 edition. I cannot get it out of my mind. Surprisingly, I happen to agree that the private sector probably could offer service more efficiently than the government, unfortunately facts just do not support the concept of private sector handling it. Look at health insurance. As long as insurance companies are involved, our health

care costs will continue soaring. Insurance companies are more concerned with profits (even the so called nonprofit companies) must make a profit. The bulk of the spending by insurance companies are the lobbyists, advertising and political contributions. I look at the fiasco of the reduced price school lunches and am appalled. Where are the private sector and private citizens stepping in and making sure no student goes without a hot lunch? Who could believe schools are actually grabbing food away from these students and tossing it in the trash? There are so many programs where private citizens could be stepping in and lending a helping hand. Certainly they are out there but not at a level that would put even See LETTERS, 5A

DEBORAH MATHIOWETZ Eagan

Make Dodd Road safe To the editor: I travel the stretch of Dodd Road where Alyssa Ettl died in a car accident often, probably two of three times per week. Once in a while, I take my freshman daughter to school at Lakeville North in the morning. More frequently, I take my sixth-grade son (and a teammate or two of his) to and from basketball practice at the school. Long before Dec. 4, 2013, the many times Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve traveled that road, I thought of the danger â&#x20AC;&#x201C; going around that curve, the 55 mph speed limit, no shoulder, slippery conditions. This paper has printed a number of my letters, most of which were rewritten over and over in an effort to make my point clear in as little words as possible. But this time, the words come so easily. I think of my daughter and all of her friends. And I think of my son and his friends. So many of whom Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m watching grow up, have coached in flag football, basketball and baseball. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve become close with many of their parents. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been such a joy watching them grow up together and I know anybody with kids in any extra-curricular activities can relate. My daughter stood in the enormously long line the night of Alyssaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wake at All Saints Church. She cried her eyes out the day of the tragedy. She still has a simple drawing entitled â&#x20AC;&#x153;AE â&#x20AC;&#x201C; trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understandingâ&#x20AC;? taped to our refrigerator in our kitchen.

About saving face To the editor: The Dakota County Board took action to adjust the process for the Lebanon Hills Regional Park Master Plan, leading to the appearance of concern for citizens and the park. During the boardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s discussion at its Feb. 11 meeting, not one single commissioner mentioned that perhaps this plan does not meet citizens expectations. Not one comment regarding residentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; concerns over this planâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s violation of the 2001 plan. No discussion over concerns regarding the cost of ongoing maintenance for all this development through a valued natural park. No discussion that the vast majority of public comments received during the past year have been opposed to this development plan. Instead, the commissionersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; discussion focused on the negative perception people have of them. It focused on how to erase the black mark earned by this County Board. It focused on how strict of guidelines should be placed on a potential citizen group. In other words, it focused on how to repair their image â&#x20AC;Ś and still develop regional bike trails through the park. Their discussion was disappointing. Their action taken was about saving face above all else.

Under a newly revised district policy, Lakeville school nurses may deny parentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; requests to give their K-5 children nonprescription pain relief if a nurse deems it is medically unnecessary, inappropriate or could cause the student harm. District Superintendent Lisa Snyder said there is no other policy in the district that allows a district employee to override a parentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision or request. District Special Education Director Renae Ouillette said it would be a rare instance that a school nurse would take such an action. She said she expected a nurseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s denial would be out of concern that giving the medication would harm the child. Ouillette said a nurse may deny a parentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s request to provide a student aspirin if a parent was disregarding the childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bigger, chronic health concerns or suffering a mental condition like Munchausen syndrome by proxy, where a caregiver makes up or causes illnesses or injury to their child. The districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s policy previously required a doctorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s note to give chil-

dren over-the-counter drugs like aspirin, which concerned School Board Member Michelle Volk when the board first reviewed proposed policy revisions at its Jan. 28 meeting. She said parents should not have to spend money or a doctorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to get a prescription signed for a nurse to give over-thecounter medication if a student has a headache. Her questions prompted a Policy Advisory Committee review, which noted an Attorney General office ruling for another school district regarding medications. The ruling concluded nurses can give medications without a physician order, and it also gave school nurses ultimate decisionmaking ability above parents regarding medication decisions. Ouillette said because no prescription is required, the nurses are ultimately responsible under their licensure for distributing the medication, verses a prescription medication, which leaves a doctor as the responsible party under their licensing. She added the district will create procedures nurses would follow before denying a parentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s request to dispense the child

a nonprescription pain reliever. The process would likely require the nurse to contact her, Ouillette said, and there would be multiple discussions with parents to address the nursesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; concerns. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want people to realize that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on the extreme,â&#x20AC;? Ouillette said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a protection for us. That we have the right to protect that child if we feel something is really not right. If that child is showing signs of possibly liver failure or something, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to say weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to do something.â&#x20AC;?

6A February 21, 2014 SUN THISWEEK - Burnsville - Eagan

Tim Leslie to run for Dakota County sheriff One week after Dakota County Sheriff Dave Bellows said he would not seek re-election, the man he endorsed to be his replacement said he would seek the elected office this fall. Chief Deputy Tim Leslie made the announcement Tuesday in a release. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When my mentor, Dakota County Sheriff Dave Bellows, announced he would not seek another term,â&#x20AC;? Leslie said in the release, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I started contemplating what Dakota County needs in its next sheriff; a proven leader, someone with extensive experience, a personal connection with Dakota County, and someone who

Tim Leslie will relentlessly safeguard taxpayer dollars.â&#x20AC;? As chief deputy, Leslie oversees many of the dayto-day operations of the

sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office and works closely with law enforcement agencies throughout Dakota County. Bellows called Leslie â&#x20AC;&#x153;instrumental in the operation and strategic planning in the sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tim Leslie is well respected in the law enforcement community and his experience and leadership has been invaluable to me and the citizens of Dakota County,â&#x20AC;? Bellows said in the release. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I considered where I have been and all the remarkable things weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve accomplished the past almost four years, and what all we have yet to do, I realized I was ready to meet this challenge and

be the next Dakota County sheriff,â&#x20AC;? Leslie said. Leslieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s law enforcement career spans more than 30 years having worked in and with state and federal agencies, serving as an assistant commissioner of the Minnesota Department of Public Safety, where he led and managed the divisions of the BCA, State Patrol, State Fire Marshall and Homeland Security and Emergency Management among others. Leslie spent 20-plus years with the St. Paul Police Department. He worked his way from patrol and street crimes to SWAT commander and senior commander of the

Eastern District. He handled multiple assignments including communications, K-9, narcotics and vice. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have had the opportunity to work closely with Tim Leslie since he became our countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chief deputy sheriff in 2010, and I can tell you that he has the experience and skills needed to be the next Dakota County sheriff,â&#x20AC;? Dakota County Attorney Jim Backstrom said in the release. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He is an outstanding leader and manager who is highly respected by his law enforcement colleagues throughout Minnesota. Tim Leslie cares deeply about protecting public safety and he will

be an excellent sheriff.â&#x20AC;? Other people listed as supporters in Leslieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s release included former Dakota County Sheriff Don Gudmundson, former Lakeville Police Chief Tom Vonhof, and current Police Chiefs Brian Lindquist (Farmington), Eric Werner (Rosemount) and Eric Gieseke (Burnsville). Leslie and his wife, Julie, have lived in Dakota County for nearly 30 years. He is a past member of the West St. Paul-Mendota Heights-Eagan School Board and a youth sports coach. His campaign website is at http://timleslieforsheriff.com.

Friends of Alyssa Ettl carry on her vision Lakeville North studentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; book drive yields outpouring of support by Laura Adelmann SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

about $1,200 to fund a scholarship being established in Ettlâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name. Riley Mostaert, a Lakeville North junior, got the second of the light blue T-shirts (Ettlâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s favorite color) at the event. She said she and Ettl played basketball together, and she wears them during warm-ups. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wanted another one because I wear it so much,â&#x20AC;? she said. Lakeville North junior Karly Smrekar said demand for the clothing and bracelets memorializing Ettl have been so strong they only have a few items left from the second reorder. Bussler said the volunteers are considering carrying on the book drive in the future for different schools. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m very happy with the turnout and want to thank everyone for the involvement,â&#x20AC;? Bussler said in an email. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It meant so much to everyone involved that it was successful and that we could work with the community of Lakeville to give back. The reception was awesome, and it makes me very interested and excited to see where we can go from here.â&#x20AC;?

In a tangible display of compassion, tribute and honor, the Lakeville community responded so thoroughly to a book drive in the memory of Alyssa Ettl that its outpouring more than quadrupled organizersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; goals. Ettl, a compassionate and selfless 16-year-old whose Dec. 4 fatal car crash shook the community, had before her death shared with friends her desire to hold a book drive for elementary students in need. In her honor, about 15 of Ettlâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s friends recently carried out her plans by holding a two-week book drive. Their stated goal was to gather 1,000 new and used elementarylevel books to donate to Andersen United Community School in Minneapolis. The effort brought in far more than anticipated: 4,550 new and used books, according to Ettlâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s friend and one of the book drive organizers, Lakeville North junior Caleb Bussler. To culminate the drive, organizers held a Feb. 12 community event at Lakeville North, featuring music, entertainment and food, where they also sold T-shirts, bracelets, Laura Adelmann is at laura.adelcar stickers and raffle tickets, raising mann@ecm-inc.com.

SUN THISWEEK - Burnsville - Eagan February 21, 2014 7A

Diving into life Lakeville Rotary President Jim Christian will present on historic Lake Superior shipwreck at scuba show by Laura Adelmann SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

All that separated Lakeville financial planner Jim Christian from a mass of hungry sharks was a rope. The avid scuba diver was geared up and ready with his underwater camera when a mass of fish heads were dumped in the water and started attracting sharks. As instructed, the group of about 20 divers stayed behind the rope as the giant monsters swam and fed just above their heads, some close enough to Christian to bump his camera. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was wigged out,â&#x20AC;? Christian said of the dive he decided to take last year in the Figi Islands after recommendations and reassurance from other divers who had gone before him. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do it again,â&#x20AC;? he said. Christian, 50, said he

is glad to have had the experience, but prefers safer diving activities like annual ones held to clean local lakes and sight-seeing dives in the Great Lakes. An avid diver since age 18, he and other divers have found cellphones, fishing roads, boots, salt and pepper shakers and even punch bowls during cleanups. They compete to see who can find the most unusual items. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You name it, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s down there,â&#x20AC;? he said. Christian will be one of many featured speakers during the Upper Midwest Scuba and Adventure Travel Show, Feb. 21-22 at the Minneapolis Boulevard Hotel, 2200 Freeway Blvd., Brooklyn Center. The Lakeville Rotary president and 1981 Burnsville High School graduate is presenting â&#x20AC;&#x153;Life Lessons from the Shipwreck Edmund Fitzgerald,â&#x20AC;? a multimedia presentation of information he has

compiled through 14 years of research, attending the Gales of November in Duluth and conducting personal interviews with individuals with first-hand knowledge of the ship, captain and company of the Edmund Fitzgerald. His talk will include reasons why the ship sank and lessons that can be learned from the sinking that took the lives of 29 men. The event serves as a fundraiser for the Great Lakes Shipwreck Preservation Society and will include professional divers, shipwreck hunters, photographers and educators sharing stories and photos of their unique diving trips that have included the Philippines, Galapagos Islands and the Yucatan jungle. For more information, go to www.umsatshow. org. Jim Christian will be one of several featured speakers during the Upper Midwest Scuba Laura Adelmann is at laura. and Adventure Travel Show this weekend. The Lakeville Rotary president swims with adelmann@ecm-inc.com. sharks and dives into the Great Lakes for sight-seeing.

Elko Speedway is set to open a drive-in movie theater, tentatively named â&#x20AC;&#x153;Champions Drive-Inâ&#x20AC;? and expected to open Friday, June 6. The Elko New Market property is the perfect site for such a project, said Elko Speedway owner Tom Ryan. He said there is plenty of room for the 720 park-

ing spaces he is planning to cluster around a natural amphitheater that exists there now. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We will have high sides on the east and west and there are pretty much solid trees to the south,â&#x20AC;? Ryan said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The screen will be in a bowl facing directly north.â&#x20AC;? No need for old-fashioned speakers; the audience will use radios to tune in the movieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sound track. Planned is a lineup of family-friendly movies

on a 116-foot-wide and 46-foot-tall screen he purchased from Cottage View Drive-In, which closed in 2012. Restrooms and concessions will be available at the trackâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s current facilities, and Ryan also plans to install temporary restroom facilities and a concession stand near the projection room, slated to be constructed this spring. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got some work to do this spring,â&#x20AC;? Ryan said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;May is going to be

extremely busy for us, getting things ready to roll. We have a screen and projection booth we have to build. The screen weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got is amazing,â&#x20AC;? He expects the movies to be open every weeknight through August, then reduce to three nights per week when school opens in fall and spring. Plans are to run a feature film following the Saturday night races, with both events available through one ticket price.

Seniors

The area is also slated for development of a medical clinic in 2014 and a bank in 2015. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We think this is a good way to bring people in to look at the community,â&#x20AC;? Ryan said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We think this is definitely going to be kind of a little gem for the city, the county and the region.â&#x20AC;?

At the Capitol

Minimum wage debate resurfaces Republican leaders discuss outlook for minimum wage, surplus, education, MNsure by Howard Lestrud SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

State Senate Minority Leader David Hann, R-Eden Prairie, said he will â&#x20AC;&#x153;go out on a limbâ&#x20AC;? and say there will be a minimum wage increase during the next session of the Minnesota Legislature, which opens Tuesday, Feb. 25. Hann and House Minority Leader Kurt Daudt, R-Crown, met with ECM Editorial Board in Coon Rapids Feb. 14 to preview the session. The minimum wage issue will likely be a hot topic between Democrats, who control both houses of the Legislature, and Republicans. The current state minimum wage rate is $6.15 an hour. During the 2013 regular session, the Senate voted approved an increase to $7.75 an hour and the House approved a $9.50 an hour rate to go in place by 2015. The full Legislature failed to pass a minimum wage bill. Hann hinted that Republicans will favor an increase to the federal minimum wage of $7.25 an hour. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That makes sense and should not be too damaging,â&#x20AC;? Hann said. Hann and Daudt said they both have concerns about too high of a minimum wage not solving a poverty issue or improving the economy. An increase in the minimum wage could have an

The session opens Tuesday, Feb. 25. (Photo by Howard Lestrud) adverse effect on nursing homes and could cause some to go out of business, Hann speculated. He said if the minimum wage is raised and nursing home workersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; wages go up, the state should fund this cost. He said other businesses in the state will raise prices and sacrifice benefit plans to accommodate the minimum wage hike. Both Hann and Daudt said they believe the D e m o c r at - c o n t ro l l e d Legislature will go higher than $7.25 an hour. Gov. Mark Dayton has said he favors an increase closer to $9.50 an hour. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is a pseudo issue, a distraction and a cynical, political playâ&#x20AC;? of the Democrats, Hann said.

Regarding the estimated $1.1 billion budget surplus, Hann and Daudt said surplus monies should be returned to the taxpayers. Hann said a package of tax relief could be put together to account for half of the surplus. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We should also talk about permanent tax relief,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s have spending in line with what the economy can reasonably generate.â&#x20AC;? The Republicans are pushing for a repeal of all three business-tobusiness taxes, which amounts to more than $300 million. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We hope to work with the other side to gain a full repeal of all three,â&#x20AC;? Hann said.

Two of the three business-to-business taxes, those on business equipment and repair and on purchases of telecommunications equipment, went into effect July 1, 2013. The tax on commercial warehousing services is not due to go into effect until April 2014. Two groups, the United for Jobs Coalition and Minnesota Chamber of Commerce, are strongly pushing for the business taxes repeal. A petition of signatures from more than 350 businesses and associations was presented to Dayton last August, asking for a full repeal of the three taxes. Republicans attempted the repeal in September 2013 during a special session but were

foiled by Democrats. Daudt said the reason a surplus exists today is because Republicans, when in control, erased the deficit without raising taxes. The focus of Republicans, Daudt said, is on what families want and need. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Business taxes have made it more difficult,â&#x20AC;? he said. Minnesota must â&#x20AC;&#x153;look out for our families.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think the Democrats are going to have a difficult time taking the surplus and saying they want to spend it,â&#x20AC;? Daudt said. This session will mark the passage of a bonding bill, and Republicans have offered support of a bill no more than $1 billion. Restoration of the state Capitol was in a small bonding bill passed last year. Education will once again be on the docket, and Daudt said the Legislature must look at changing technology and at the way students are educated. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The way kids learn in the world is different from what they learn in the classroom,â&#x20AC;? he said. Hann and Daudt said more education reforms are needed to improve education. He said the Legislature has approved an increase in education funding to more than 31 percent in the last two years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We think education is our future,â&#x20AC;? Hann said.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Are we doing as well as we should be?â&#x20AC;? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a structure problem, he said, transferred from the Legislature to Washington, D.C. Hann said it is imperative that the parents become engaged in improving education. Local people and school officials must be trusted to make the right decisions, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Democrats want to manage for everyone,â&#x20AC;? Hann said. The two minority leaders also guaranteed that significant discussion will be directed toward what Hann calls â&#x20AC;&#x153;the MNsure debacle.â&#x20AC;? The leaders call for better solutions and say Republicans will continue to be at the negotiating table to offer solutions like they did in the past. Hann said maybe onehalf of the Republican members wanted to do things to make MNsure work, but their ideas were rejected from the start. The call is for more oversight, he said. Many other issues will be debated by the Legislature in this session and likely will include discussion on campaign finance reform, transportation proposals and a proposal to eliminate publishing of city and county legal notices in newspapers.

DUCATIONAL XCELLENCE

Spotlight on Education â&#x20AC;&#x153;Imagine Your Futureâ&#x20AC;?

Textbooks versus E-books? Advice for college students As every semester begins, college students research online, trying to find the best deals on textbooks. According to CollegeBoard, college students spend an average of $1,200 per year on textbooks. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no secret that expenses are high for students pursuing higher education and many young adults are constantly seeking ways to save money. Better Business Bureau of Minnesota and North Da-

kota reminds students etextbooks are an option to consider. Many publishing companies have begun to offer textbooks in an e-textbook format, made for computers, tablets and e-readers, at a lower price than the hardcover texts found in campus bookstores. So why arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t more students opting for a tablet instead of carrying around multiple textbooks? There are some advantages

and disadvantages to using a tablet or e-reader rather than traditional textbooks, and the BBB suggests that students should consider them all before making the decision to switch up their study tools. Reasons students should consider e-textbooks: â&#x20AC;˘ E-textbooks are significantly less expensive than their hard-copy counterparts. However, you have to factor in the cost of the tab-

Looking for a private school? Once youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve made the decision to send your son or daughter to a private school, you need to choose which school it will be. There are a myriad of education styles available today, and the choices are varied and interesting. In addition to the type of school, the choice of school is just as important. So, how SHOULD you go about choosing a school for yourself and/or your child? The choice you ultimately make can have a big impact in many ways. Here are some important qualities to look for in selecting a school that meets your specific needs. Does the school offer a full range of activities â&#x20AC;&#x201C; sports, drama, music and student activities? For high schools, are the college entrance test scores above average? How many students go on to college? What is the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s graduation rate? Read the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mission statement. If itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a faith-based school, read and understand its beliefs and principles. You should agree with their statement

of faith or values. Private schools will include their educational philosophy and beliefs throughout their curriculum. More intangible but very important is the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s atmosphere. Will your student feel comfortable in the community and personality of the school? Every private school has a distinct atmosphere that is unique to that school. Visit the school for a day and have your child go to classes so they can experience the student life. When you walk in the door, is the school pleasant and clean? You want to know that every effort is being undertaken to keep the facility as sanitary as possible. Talk to the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s instructors and make some notes. Ask them some hard questions: How do they handle discipline problems? What do they expect from each student? How do they promote good behavior? Do they act like the role models that they are? Watch how the instructors interact with students.

Are they happy to be there? Do they treat each person as an important part of the class, or focus on â&#x20AC;&#x153;high-achieverâ&#x20AC;? students? Are they respectful of the students, or do they simply demand obedience? These things will help you see a clear picture of the school. Finally, look at the students. Do they seem to be engaged in the process? Are they interested or bored? Are they happy? Ultimately you will have to deal with the financial issue. This is very important. Ask the school to provide you with its costs upfront. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t set yourself up for disappointment. Make sure there are no surprises in this area. Finding the best school for your needs isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a matter of luck. If you do your homework before choosing a school, you will find that there are differences in each school. Information will make you an informed buyer, and will provide your best opportunity for achieving the educational goals you have set for yourself and/ or your child.

let or reader itself, ranging anywhere from $80 to $300, depending on the model you choose. So youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll want to make sure that the savings will be worth the investment in the end. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re an incoming freshman or sophomore, chances are the investment is worth it, but if you have only a semester or two of school left and are planning to purchase the ereader solely for academic purposes, you may want to just stick to traditional textbooks. â&#x20AC;˘ Imagine all of your heavy textbooks compacted into one, lightweight device. This not only takes the strain off of your back, but also makes it a lot easier to do homework anywhere. Also, you have all of your textbooks in one spot,

which is definitely a convenience. â&#x20AC;˘ Most tablets operate off of Wi-Fi and can be used for many things besides just reading e-books. Reasons some students might stick with traditional textbooks: â&#x20AC;˘ With most textbooks, you may be able to sell them back to the bookstore or online at the end of the semester, giving you at least some of your cash back. Keep in mind that you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t re-sell e-textbooks. â&#x20AC;˘ Tablets and e-readers may actually hinder study habits for those used to learning from physical textbooks. Some people might find it more difficult to annotate and take notes with e-textbook formats. Students that use e-textbooks

may choose to continue taking notes on paper. â&#x20AC;˘ Not all textbooks are available in all formats. Some editions may only be available as standard textbooks. If you choose to opt for a tablet or an e-reader, you will also want to do some research to find out which model is the best fit for you. Read consumer reviews and make sure you understand the features that each tablet offers. If you already own an ereader or a tablet, you may want to experiment with one e-textbook, to see how â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and if â&#x20AC;&#x201C; that works for you.

In response to community concerns, the focus of Lakevilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first School Road Task Force has broadened to include a second phase: pedestrian safety around schools. City Administrator Steve Mielke said residents have raised concerns about how students access schools by foot and bike, and at its Feb. 18 meeting City Council members voted to establish the ninemember task force and approved its expanded focus. Council first authorized establishing the School Road Task Force at its Jan. 28 work session, with focus on the prioritization of school road improvement projects, a challenge as there are many needs but limited funds. Mielke clarified the task force will not actually prioritize road projects, but will provide policy direction for officials to consider in decision-making. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Elected officials (for the school district, city and county) have to make those difficult prioritization decisions,â&#x20AC;? Mielke said, noting there will be a collaborative approach in the effort. He said pedestrian issues will be addressed in a second phase, noting they are more complex and require more time. Establishment of the School Road Task Force is in response to the Dec. 4 Dodd Boulevard car crash that killed 16-year-old Alyssa Ettl as she traveled to school. Her death devastated the community, and a Sun Thisweek investigation has raised questions about how county road upgrades have been prioritized. The section of Dodd Boulevard (County Road 9) near Lakeville North High School where Ettl died has been identified for safety improvements for years, but delayed awaiting development to fund it while other Lakeville road projects have been forwarded, some leapfrogging development. County Road 50 is another high-priority safety concern as it is the only access to Kenwood Trail Middle School. Officials had accelerated improvements for that road, but after the fatal accident, and renewed safety concerns arose about Dodd Boulevard near LNHS, Mayor Matt Little proposed formation of the School Road Safety Task Force, Officials want the task

force to provide criteria to help them this spring update plans that prioritize road projects and identify funding. Little said he will appoint members to expedite the process. Two task force members will be district residents. Little said he will seek a community member with a public safety background and a high school student to fill those positions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Since Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been elected to the council in 2010, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve made a commitment to try to get students involved,â&#x20AC;? Little said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the place they grew up, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the place we want them to move back to, so I want them to be involved in everything we do.â&#x20AC;? Little said Lakeville North High School senior Cody Jones was â&#x20AC;&#x153;excellentâ&#x20AC;? as a member of the Envision Lakeville Task Force, and he has asked Jones for recommendations of a potential student member. The mayor said he is also considering appointing a community member recommended by Alyssa Ettlâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s father, Matt Ettl. Little said Matt Ettl will not himself be on the task force, but will be actively involved in the process. Task force membership will also include representatives from the city, Dakota County and school districts 194, 192 and 196. Littleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s task force member recommendations are expected by weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s end for City Council review, but will not be revealed publicly until the councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Feb. 24 work session.

Pedestrian concerns Lakeville residentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; concerns to city officials about student safety while biking or walking to school prompted the city to charge the task force with reviewing trail access and potential improvements along city and county roads. Mielke said some areas of concern are 210th Street near Lakeville South High School and McGuire Middle School. A parent emailed him Tuesday sounding an alarm about her childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s school where congestion has compelled parents to park off-site to pick up their children who cross busy roads to get to them. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need to make sure that those are looked at,â&#x20AC;? Mielke said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I foresee See SAFETY, 13A

SAFETY, from 12A that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to have to look at every school site individually â&#x20AC;Ś and talk about what are the issues there.â&#x20AC;? He said it will be â&#x20AC;&#x153;a lot of workâ&#x20AC;? to identify those issues and devise policies to improve them. City Council Member Colleen LaBeau has also suggested reducing the number of trails being built in the city so money saved on maintenance costs could be used for road improvements near schools. Council Member Kerrin Swecker reiterated her concerns that the process is being rushed to meet the Capital Improvement Plans update timeline; she repeatedly questioned if there was enough time to meet the CIP deadlines and asked for the process to be slowed to allow thorough review of the issues. Mielke said that by prioritizing, the task force will be able to meet CIP deadlines. He said it is his goal that the CIP road projects be identified by this spring, and would be comfortable adding trail and bike projects at a later date to give the task force and officials more time for review. The task force is expected to meet every three to four weeks for

six months, although Mielke said it may need more time to complete its work. Council Member Doug Anderson said he supports the collaborative effort being established with the city, county and all three school districts that serve Lakeville students to address school safety. Little agreed, calling the process of elected officials reviewing plans, then passing along to another elected body for their review â&#x20AC;&#x153;pingpong.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;We canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do that anymore,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Here, we all sit down together and figure this out, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the best way to do it, and then we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to have this same conversation next year about whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the next priority. We already have this blueprint for five or 10 years, and I think the community is much better served that way.â&#x20AC;? He also described the significance of forming the task force to address student safety. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so important,â&#x20AC;? Little said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This provides the blueprint for how we keep kids safe for the next five to 10 years.â&#x20AC;? Laura Adelmann is at laura.adelmann@ecm-inc.com.

Hett is state runner-up in back-to-back years Burnsville girls, Eagan boys both fourth in state Nordic team meet by Mike Shaughnessy SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Burnsville senior Vivian Hett finished her high school Nordic skiing career with a second consecutive state runner-up finish. Hett finished about six seconds behind Irondale senior Mattie Watts – a teammate of Hett’s on the U.S. junior national squad – at the Feb. 13 state pursuit race at Giants Ridge in Biwabik. Additionally, Hett helped lead Burnsville to fourth place in the girls team competition, won by Wayzata for the second consecutive year. Eastview qualified for state and placed seventh. Eagan finished fourth in the boys team competition, and Wildcats senior Josh Podpeskar was ninth in the pursuit race. Hett skied in the state meet six times, beginning in 2009 when she finished 109th as a seventh-grader. She was ranked first in the state for most of the 201314 season but was expected to be pushed at state by skiers such as Watts and Wayzata’s Alayna Sonnesyn, who were fifth and sixth at state last season. Watts skied to a 23-second lead in the 5-kilometer freestyle portion of the race. Hett had the fastest time of 18 minutes, 38.9 seconds on the 5K classic leg and cut 17 seconds off Watts’ lead, but she could not overtake the Irondale skier. Watts’ overall time was 37:14.6 to Hett’s

37:20.9. Sonnesyn was third, 45 seconds behind Hett. Eighth-grader Kelly Koch was Burnsville’s No. 2 skier at state, finishing 28th in 41:05.6. Also skiing at state for the Blaze were senior Tori Felton (43rd, 42:01.9), junior Jordan Horner (53rd, 42:38.9), ninth-grader Krista Holmstrom (56th, 42:43.8), junior Jane Koch (85th, 44:14.0) and junior Mari Belina (91st, 44:28.4). Eastview sophomore Margie Freed was sixth in the girls pursuit race in 38:10.9, an improvement of 31 places over her finish in the 2013 state meet. Senior Kaley Hedberg was 74th in 43:38.3, sophomore Annika Martell finished 82nd in 43:58.4 and sophomore Kylie Kraemer finished 87th in 44:14.9. Sophomore Sydney Hedberg finished 95th in 44:53.4. Junior Laura Herland (47:46.5) and sophomore Elena Dawson (48:29.1) finished 118th and 119th. Lakeville South senior Carley Endersbe (102nd, 45:29.3) and Lakeville North junior Molly Wilson (112th, 46:40.2) competed individually at state after qualifying through the Section 1 meet. Eagan finished 36 points behind state champion Forest Lake in the boys team competition but was only seven points out of second place. Eagan finished seventh in the 2013 state meet. Podpeskar was ninth in pursuit in 33:35.3 after finishing 57th at state a year ago. A South Suburban Conference skier, Bloomington Jefferson sophomore Zak Ketterson, won the individual title.

Burnsville scores 6 goals in last two periods against Eastview by Mike Shaughnessy SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Just when it appeared as if the first team to 10 goals would win the Section 3AA championship, Burnsville made a change that helped send the Blaze to the state girls hockey tournament. After trailing Eastview by two goals after one period, Burnsville roared back with three in the second and three more in the third to win 7-4 in the section final Feb. 12 in Inver Grove Heights. “The first period wasn’t our best,” Burnsville coach Tracy Cassano said in an understatement; the Blaze fell behind 3-1 after one. “We had to get back to what we do well, but we did switch a couple of our line matchups. “We asked (junior forward) Maddie Dockry to be a defensive warrior, and she was. We told her to cover (Eastview scoring leader) Natalie Snodgrass. She took on that challenge and did a great job.” Eastview, meanwhile, never could contain the Burnsville senior trio of Lindsey Coleman, Briita Nelson and Paige Skaja, who were first, second and tied for third in South Suburban Conference scoring. The top line was on the ice for all seven Burnsville goals. Coleman scored four of them, including one at 1:23 of the third period that gave the Blaze its first lead at 5-4. Burnsville (21-7) will play in the state tournament for the first time since 2010. The Blaze will

It was a particularly bitter defeat for Eastview (18-9-1), which lost in the Section 3AA championship game for the fourth time in six years and still is waiting for its first trip to state. The Lightning took the lead 1:08 into the game on Erika Geary’s goal. Burnsville tied it less than four minutes later, but goals by Snodgrass and Kellie McGahn put Eastview up by two. The offensive spigot dried up for Eastview after that, save for a power-play goal by Liz Palmi in the second period that gave her team a 4-3 lead. Coleman, who has 63 points on 32 goals and 31 assists, tied the game again during a power play in the final minute of the second period when a loose puck slid over to her and she scored from about 10 feet out. Early in the third period Coleman skated into the slot and converted on a wrist shot for what proved to be the game-winner. Briita Nelson, who also had four assists, scored on a backhand with 3:03 left. Coleman’s fourth goal was into an empty net with one minute remaining.

(Photo by Mike Shaughnessy) Skaja and senior defender Emma Wittchow also scored for the Blaze. After a shaky first period, goalie Lauren Bench stopped 10 of 11 Eastview shots over the final two. After the first period, Cassano said her message to the team was “just relax. We knew it wasn’t a good period, but if we get pucks deep and get in front of the net we’ll be

fine because we know we have girls who can score.” Cassano is the Blaze’s third head coach in three years. Bruce Anderson, who was behind the bench for Burnsville’s last state tournament appearance four years ago, retired after the 2011-12 season. Garnet Asmundson coached for one year and See HOCKEY, 16A

Eagan resident and Cretin-Derham Hall senior Keillen O’Brien, Eastview ninth-grader Luke Doolittle and Eagan senior Sally Anderson were among the top10 finishers at the state high school Alpine skiing meet Wednesday in Biwabik. Lakeville North also qualified for the girls team competition and placed sixth in the meet at Giants Ridge. O’Brien, who had to sit out of high school skiing as a junior after transferring from St. Thomas Academy, had the fastest time (32.44 seconds) on the second of two runs. That brought his total time to 1 minute, 7.22 seconds. He was 0.25 seconds behind the winner, Louis Nguyen of Chanhassen. Dolittle also made it into the top 10, placing 10th in 1:13.62. Apple Valley sophomore Robert Hapke, one of three Eagles skiers to qualify for state individually, placed 15th in 1:13.86. Eagles senior Liam Tyler was 46th in 1:23.71. Croix Turner, a junior, was 67th in 1:46.47. Burnsville junior Jon Garbe, appearing at state for the second consecutive year, placed 51st in 1:28.02. Garbe was in 80th place after the first run but had the 25th fastest time on the second run. The Blaze’s Jack Lindsay stood in 10th place after his first run but did not complete his second run. Lakeville North’s Matt Xi was disqualified on his second run. Eagan sophomore Tommy Anderson was

in position to make a push for the individual championship when he finished his first run in 34.53, one-tenth of a second behind Nguyen. Anderson missed a gate on his second run and had to climb back up the hill, costing him a massive amount of time and dropping him to 64th place. He finished fifth in the 2013 state meet.

16A February 21, 2014 SUN THISWEEK - Burnsville - Eagan

HOCKEY, from 15A is now an administrator in the Fertile-Beltrami school district. Cassano led Rosemount to the 2011 Section 3AA championship but was bumped from her teaching position in School District 196 (Apple Valley-Eagan-Rosemount) and had to get another job. She found a position in Chaska and coached the Chaska/Chanhassen girls hockey team for two years. But with three children age 3 or younger, Cassano said she needed to be closer to her home in Dakota County if she was to continue coaching. In addition to landing the coaching job in Burnsville, she has returned to District 196, replacing a teacher who retired. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I knew from coaching at Rosemount that Burnsville was always one of our toughest opponents,â&#x20AC;? Cassano said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know that much about the players when I took the job, but I know now Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m so fortunate to have an opportunity to coach this team.â&#x20AC;?

Notes â&#x20AC;˘ Burnsville had two victories added to its record last week and Eastview received one more. Both schools played Achiever Academy, a private school that reached the Section 4A championship game before withdrawing from the playoffs amid allegations that the team used ineligible players. Achiever Academyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 21 victories and one tie were changed into forfeits. Burnsville played Achiever Academy twice during the regular season, tying the Aces 2-2 on Dec. 26 and losing 5-4 on Jan. 7. Eastview lost to Achiever Academy 7-4 in its season opener. Achiever Academy also had to forfeit a regular-season game it won against South Suburban Conference champion Lakeville North.

Notebook: Boys hockey playoffs start this week Burnsville seeded second in 2AA; Eagan is No. 4 in 3AA by Mike Shaughnessy SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

South Suburban Conference champion Lakeville North and Missota Conference winner Farmington are the top two seeds in the Section 1AA boys hockey tournament that starts Thursday. Meanwhile, Burnsville will again try to knock off Edina in Section 2AA. The Blaze is seeded second in the section while the Hornets got the No. 1 seed. In Section 3AA, Cretin-Derham Hall is the top seed with defending champion Eastview the No. 2 seed. Lakeville North (20-4-1), seeking a third consecutive trip to the state tournament, plays Dodge County (9-13-3) in a section quarterfinal game at 7 p.m. Thursday at Ames Arena. North had a 19game unbeaten streak before losing to Prior Lake 1-0 in its final regular-season game. In other Section 1AA quarterfinal action, Farmington (21-3-1) takes on Rochester John Marshall (8-15-2) at Schmitz-Maki Arena. The Tigers, who hold the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s longest current winning streak at 16 games, played John Marshall in their season opener and won 4-3. Despite its 8-17 record, Lakeville South drew the No. 3 seed in Section 1AA and plays sixthseeded Rochester Century (12-

12-1) Thursday night at Hasse Arena. The Lakeville North-Dodge County winner will play Rochester Mayo or Owatonna in the semifinals at 2 p.m. Saturday at Rochester Rec Center. The other semifinal at 8 p.m. will have the Farmington-John Marshall winner playing the Lakeville SouthCentury winner. The section final is Feb. 27, also in Rochester. Burnsville (18-6-1), the South Suburban Conference runnerup, plays Shakopee (9-15-1) in a Section 2AA quarterfinal game at Burnsville Ice Center, with the winner playing Bloomington Jefferson or Holy Angels in the semifinals Saturday. The section final is 8 p.m. Feb. 26 at Mariucci Arena. Burnsville and Edina have played in the Section 2AA final the last three years, with Edina winning each time. The Blaze and Hornets split two regular-season games in 2013-14. Cretin-Derham Hall (16-6-3) received the top seed in Section 3AA, which features four teams with at least 15 victories. The Raiders will play host to Rosemount (7-16-2) or Apple Valley (5-20) in a quarterfinal game at 7 p.m. Thursday. The Irish and Eagles met in a first-round game Tuesday night. Eastview (18-6-1) plays host to Woodbury (8-17) or Park of Cottage Grove (3-21-1) in another Thursday quarterfinal game. Eagan (15-9-1) will be at home against East Ridge (9-15-1). No. 3-seeded St. Thomas

Academy is making its Class AA playoff debut after winning the last three Class A state tournaments. If Eastview wins its quarterfinal game, it could face STA (18-6-1) in the semifinals at 8 p.m. Saturday at the Warner Coliseum on the state fairgrounds. The Eagan-East Ridge winner will play Cretin-Derham Hall, Rosemount or Apple Valley in the 6 p.m. semifinal. The Section 3AA championship game will be 7 p.m. Feb. 27 in one of the last games to be played at the Coliseum, which will not have hockey games after this season.

Goehner to â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Uâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Alyssa Goehner verbally committed to the Marquette University volleyball team before her sophomore season of high school and signed with the Golden Eagles last November. But now the Lakeville North High School senior is going to Minnesota after being released from her Marquette commitment. Goehner sought her release from Marquette after the coach who recruited her, Bond Shymansky, left the school Jan. 31 to become head coach at Iowa. Goehner visited Minnesota and Iowa before verbally committing to Minnesota on Tuesday. An outside hitter, Goehner helped Lakeville North win state Class 3A championships in 2010 and 2012. The Panthers were state runners-up in 2011. She was the prepvolleyball.com sophomore player of the year in 2011 and ju-

nior player of the year in 2012.

Three-for-one deal Jack, Nick and Ryan Poehling, brothers who play for the Lakeville North boys hockey team, simultaneously announced on their Twitter accounts last week they have verbally committed to St. Cloud State University. Jack and Nick are juniors and Ryan is a ninth-grader. Going into the Section 1AA playoffs Jack Poehling led the Panthers in scoring with 45 points, Nick was second with 35 and Ryan was fourth with 27. Former Lakeville North goalie Charlie Lindgren now plays at St. Cloud State and former Panthers forward Blake Winiecki, now playing for the Waterloo Black Hawks of the United States Hockey League, committed to SCSU last fall.

First loss for Lightning There are no more undefeated teams in Class 4A girls basketball after Bloomington Kennedy defeated Eastview 73-60 on Feb. 14. Eastview (21-1) still has the best record in the class; the Lightning is the only team in the division with just one loss. The Lightning went into this week 13-1 in South Suburban Conference play, one game ahead of Kennedy. Junior guard Madison Guebert scored 28 points and senior guard Kari Opatz scored 11 for Eastview in the Kennedy game. Email Mike Shaughnessy at mike.shaughnessy@ecm-inc.com.

Apple Valley wins SSC boys hoops championship by Mike Shaughnessy SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Apple Valley and Lakeville North played a game that was nothing like their previous meeting â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but probably a lot like the ones they will have in the coming weeks. In a game with playoff pace, playoff intensity and a playoff-type overflow crowd at the Lakeville North gym, Apple Valley survived 59-56 in overtime to win its second consecutive South Suburban Conference championship.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;This was a great test,â&#x20AC;? said Apple Valley senior forward Dennis Austin, whose steal with about 15 seconds remaining in overtime might well have prevented a second overtime. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We know weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to have games like this in the playoffs. We have a lot of young guys on our team, and they needed to see how these games are going to go and how theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to be officiated.â&#x20AC;? No. 1-ranked Apple Valley, 24-1 overall, is 17-0 in the South Suburban with one regular-season

  

            

      

  

game remaining Friday at home against Rosemount. Before Tuesday, all of the Eaglesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; conference victories were by 13 points or more, including a 102-74 win over Lakeville North on Jan. 14. The Panthers (20-5, 15-2) would have tied for the conference lead with a victory over Apple Valley. With the game tied 47-47, the Panthers held the ball for the final two minutes of the second half â&#x20AC;&#x201C; something rarely seen in a regular-season game â&#x20AC;&#x201C; so they could take a lastsecond shot. Tyler Flackâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shot bounced off the rim and the ball went out of bounds, leaving about six

seconds for Apple Valley to attempt its own gamewinning shot. Tyus Jonesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; pull-up jumper from 12 feet rattled out and the game went to overtime. Apple Valley scored the first eight points of overtime but North scrambled back and was within two points at 56-54 with 21.7 seconds left. The Panthersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; J.P. Macura drove toward the basket but was cut off and tried to kick the ball out to teammate Alex Reiland. Austin got in the way to deflect the pass and recover the ball. He was fouled and made two free throws, finally giving the Eagles a chance to breathe easily.

       

Austin said his teammates defended the play so well that he could look to get into a passing lane. He saw Reiland out of the corner of his eye and moved between him and Macura. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When (Macura) went up, he was off-balance,â&#x20AC;? Austin said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was going to have to throw it somewhere, and he threw it to me.â&#x20AC;? Lakeville North coach John Oxton said he was pleased with his teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s defensive effort against Apple Valley, which scored at least 70 points in each of its previous 24 games and has had 100 or more points six times.

It has held down costs of the interchange project while also containing redevelopment costs for property owners — “who can now redevelop their land and are ready to attract new businesses to locate there,” Kautz said. The city’s unemployment rate is 4 percent, below the state and national rates, Kautz said, adding that 35 new businesses came to town last year. Fairview Ridges Hospital is in the midst of a vast expansion that will bring new and expanded services to a 130,000-square-foot medical office building and 23,000-square-foot hospital expansion and includes a 500-stall parking ramp and skyway, she said. In the Heart of the City, a development group plans to build a Hilton Garden Inn north of the Performing Arts Center parking deck, and an Applewood Pointe senior housing cooperative will be built at Burnsville Parkway, Kautz said. The city is also working with expansion-minded Abdallah Candies, a longtime Burnsville business, to keep it here, she said. The city held the 2014 property-tax increase for existing taxpayers to 0.5 percent, “putting us toward the very bottom of comparable tax increases in Dakota County,” Kautz said. Expiration of a taxincrement financing district for land near County Road 42 pumped $1.1 million into city coffers — money that will be spent on road upkeep, Kautz said. The city will spend $10 million this year rebuilding six miles of aging city streets, she said.

ing of 20-year-old Anarae Schunk in Rosemount. “This, along with a handful of other violent crimes in a short period of time, left many of asking ‘Why?’ and ‘How?’ ” Kautz said. The crimes were “anomalies in our quiet community,” where the violent crime rate has fallen annually since 1995 and fell 2 percent from 2012 to 2013, she said. Police responded to the violence with “community gatherings to discuss public safety,” Kautz said. Meanwhile, emergency medical service calls continue to rise with an aging population, and fire calls rose in the last year, too, she said. But apartment fires, “an ever-present problem in the past, are down significantly, thanks to our Fire Department’s public education, and Code Enforcement, and their efforts,” Kautz said. The city launched a “proactive property maintenance program” last year in response to aging housing and “multiple substandard rental complexes,” she said. “In the first year of the program, more than 6,000 properties were inspected,” and nearly 80 percent of property owners notified of problems quickly fixed them, Kautz said. The program is funded by inspection and licensing fees, she said. Last year the city identified 40 acres of unbuildable property in the southern portion of the Minnesota River Quadrant west of Interstate 35W and south of Highway 13, Kautz said. Through a public-private arrangement involving dirt excavated for the Highway 13-County Road 5 interchange project, a third of the substandard soils in the 40 acres were replaced, and another third will be replaced by the end of this year, Kautz John Gessner can be reached said. at (952) 846-2031 or email “By the end of 2014, we john.gessner@ecm-inc.com. EXCHANGES, from 1A

A series of acquisitions left him working for Hewlett-Packard. Tired of the travel involved while trying to raise a family, Zouzouambe, 41, started his own business seven years ago. Past clients have included Landis and Gyr, an electricity-metering company for whom he worked on “smart metering” software projects, said Zouzouambe, who has three sons, ages 7, 12 and 13. He was already under contract with CieloStar when the company launched its health exchange product. “They’re really two distinctive products,” both of which he developed, Zouzouambe said. “The exchange was a brand new product that was built from scratch about a year ago. And then once the employer purchases the plan on the exchange, that information is sent to a separate product that I was originally hired by CieloStar to develop. That product is then used for the enrollment of the employees.” CieloStar collects a percentage of the insurance premiums paid through the exchange by employers and employees, Zouzouambe said. “I wouldn’t know how much of the premium they are getting,” he said. “But in terms of interest and where health care is headed, they’re definitely in a good spot.” It’s not a bad spot for a software architect, either. “I’ve been in various industries,” Zouzouambe said. “From the standpoint of the actual business or revenue, it’s not really a big difference. The big excitement is the scale of the work, the outreach of the work that we’re doing now.”

plans on the exchanges. CieloStar began working on the project after passage of the Affordable Care Act, whose public exchanges cater primarily to individuals, not businesses. In the past year Zouzouambe has designed exchanges for state chambers in North Carolina, Oklahoma, Ohio and Kentucky, and for Aambe, a Native American-owned national services and marketing company. So far, so good, Zouzouambe reports. “And in fairness to MNsure or HealthCare. gov, we don’t have hundreds of thousands of people hitting our websites simultaneously,” he said. “I’m not saying if they do we won’t have issues, but we definitely are not dealing with that kind of scale.” Zouzouambe said his business is now consumed by the exchange project, which he believes — with CieloStar’s aggressive marketing — will catch on in many more states. He employs two subcontractors and has part-time secretarial help from his wife, Ruth. Zouzouambe’s office is on West County Road 42 in Burnsville, minutes from his home near Buck Hill. Born and raised in the Central African country of Cameroon, Zouzouambe has lived in Minnesota since 1997. He met his wife, who is from Silver Bay, Minn., when she was a Peace Corps schoolteacher in Cameroon and he was studying math at the University of Yaounde. Zouzouambe attended the KRS Computer and Business School in Bloomington and was hired by consulting firm Rainier Technology, which spe- John Gessner can be reached cialized in designing Mi- at (952) 846-2031 or email crosoft software packages. john.gessner@ecm-inc.com.

CENTER, from 1A

and raising even more money from facility rentals, the centerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chief revenue source. The 2013 showing is a far cry from 2009, when the facility â&#x20AC;&#x201D; built by the city for $20 million and vigorously opposed by some residents â&#x20AC;&#x201D; posted a first-year operating deficit of $547,855, according to VenuWorks, the centerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s management firm. The deficit fell to was $399,615 in 2010 and $275,715 in 2011. Revenue has nearly doubled since 2009. The center will get another boost this year when a $1 million naming-rights deal kicks in. Burnsville-based Ames

Construction Inc. reached a deal in August to pay the city $100,000 a year for 10 years. The center will be renamed the Ames Center, with new exterior signs and a public dedication sometime in the coming months. Mondelli said VenuWorks wants to use possibly 20 percent of the annual payments to boost the centerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;angel fund,â&#x20AC;? which allows management to pursue several of its own bookings rather than just waiting for promoters to call. Kautz said the original intent of selling naming rights was to raise revenue to pare the operating

deficit. But a successful run of angel fund shows can also further that same goal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We think growing the angel fund is really, really key,â&#x20AC;? Mondelli said. The 2014 business plan calls for raising the fund to $100,000 by the end of 2018 through corporate sponsorships and naming-rights revenue. Executive Director Brian Luther said the fund now has $72,000, some of which is already tied up in upcoming shows. Seven angel fund shows are planned this year, he said. The plan sets forth other goals, which include increasing the number of concerts from 28 in 2013

to 30 in 2014, increasing the number of events in the upper lobby from 75 to 85, increasing the number of events in the main theater from 148 to 153 and increasing the number of events in the black box theater from 123 to 125. The goals are among the performance measures the city added last year through a new threeyear contract with VenuWorks, which has managed the center since it opened. The goals arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t contractual but will help the city judge the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work, Mondelli said. The council also approved the 2014 work plan for the centerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ad-

visory commission. The plan includes regular review of the performance measures by the full commission. The plan calls for three subcommittees to work on publicizing the center in the community and gauging customer satisfaction, increasing business engagement in the center through facility rentals and donations, and exploring revenue enhancements. The full commission will also cut back its meeting schedule from every two months to quarterly.

He prefers medica-

tion to be laboratory tested and labeled to identify its contents, ensuring each dose is the same. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good thing,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Do we want people to grow meds in their backyard and sell them?â&#x20AC;? Medicinal drugs approved for use in the United States are not determined by the voting population, he explained, noting that residents of states that permit the use of medical marijuana have abuse and dependence rates nearly double that of other states. He said another myth is that the legality of alcohol and tobacco strengthen the case for legal marijuana. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Alcohol and tobacco are the last examples that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d ever want to use,â&#x20AC;? he said. The use of alcohol and tobacco are much higher than marijuana in part because theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re legal

products. Legalizing the use of marijuana will create another industry that capitalizes upon the small percent that are addictive users. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That is the reason Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m against legalizing marijuana,â&#x20AC;? he said. Industries built around addictive behavior â&#x20AC;&#x153;do not make money from people who causally, safely, occasionally use their product or engage in what theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re selling,â&#x20AC;? he said. The important consumers are the 15 percent of the users who consume 90 percent of what the industry manufactures, he said. The 85 percent of consumers who heed the â&#x20AC;&#x153;enjoy responsiblyâ&#x20AC;? warnings: â&#x20AC;&#x153;They donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t care about you.â&#x20AC;? Those industries target children through the flavors, packaging or marketing of their products, Sabet noted. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not going to have the lifelong customer unless you start them ear-

ly,â&#x20AC;? he said. A benefit to prohibition is that it keeps the price of products artificially high. Studies show that when a product is legalized, the price collapses and more people will use it, according to Sabet. The argument that legalizing marijuana will eliminate the underground market isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t entirely true, Sabet said, as there will be a demand for marijuana by underage users and regulations and restrictions on the legal product will turn users to the black market for unregulated products, he explained. The push toward legalizing marijuana â&#x20AC;&#x153;is about creating the next tobacco industry,â&#x20AC;? according to Sabet. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Will marijuana become the new big tobacco?â&#x20AC;? Sabet and former U.S. Rep. Patrick Kennedy formed Project Smart Approaches to Marijuana a year ago.

The nonprofitâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s objectives are to inform public policy with the science of todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s marijuana, to have conversations about reducing the unintended consequences of current marijuana policies, to prevent the establishment of â&#x20AC;&#x153;big marijuanaâ&#x20AC;? that would market marijuana to children, and to promote research on marijuana in order to obtain FDA-approved, pharmacy-dispensed, cannabisbased medications. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Are you on the side of the American Medical Association, or the industry that wants to make a lot of money?â&#x20AC;? he asked. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Focus on the data and the science.â&#x20AC;?

program which requires teams to build large robots that compete in sporting like events. The team consists of about 50 students who work on specific elements in smaller groups. Hoping to give more students, particularly

younger students, a hands-on experience, Eaganâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s program leaders decided in 2011 to establish an FTC team, which is open to younger students who build smaller robots. Having smaller robots enables students to work in smaller teams

and take on a larger role individually, Davies said. Eighth-graders Brandon Dykes and Charlie Worner said this handson experience is why they joined the programâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Blue Nova team. The program was open to students in eighth and

ninth grade in its first two years, but due to its popularity, program leaders decided to include seventh-graders, he said.

The center also bested its 2013 budgeted numbers in revenue ($1.17 million vs. $1.1 million), expenses ($1.33 million vs. $1.38 million) and operating deficit ($160,115 vs. $275,995), according to the annual report. Food and beverage sales grossed $210,400 last year, compared with $148,735 in 2012 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a $66,600 increase in revenue and a $39,800 increase in profits, the report said. The council voted Feb. 18 to approve the centerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2014 business plan, which includes goals for boosting the number of events

SUN THISWEEK - Burnsville - Eagan February 21, 2014 23A

Thisweekend Celtic folk-rock band in Lakeville

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Two Deer,â&#x20AC;? one of 13 images featured in Courtney Reintsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Moving Skinâ&#x20AC;? exhibit, was photographed at Taxidermy Unlimited in Burnsville. (Photo submitted)

The art of mounted animals Local photographerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Moving Skinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; exhibit focuses on taxidermy by Andrew Miller SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

For her new photo exhibit, Courtney Reints turned her artistâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gaze on stuffed animals â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not talking about teddy bears. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Moving Skin,â&#x20AC;? which opened Feb. 15 at CO Exhibitions in Minneapolis, marks the first solo gallery show for Reints, a 2009 graduate of Apple Valleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s School of Environmental Studies who went on to major in photography at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design. The exhibit, and its focus on taxidermy, grew out of a college project around the theme of â&#x20AC;&#x153;the expressive body.â&#x20AC;? While many of the other students focused on people â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and especially dancers â&#x20AC;&#x201D; as their subject matter, Reints found inspiration in mounted bucks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of my family is from South Dakota, so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something I grew up around â&#x20AC;&#x201D; we have a lot of hunters in our family,â&#x20AC;? said Reints, 22, who photographed the 13 images featured in â&#x20AC;&#x153;Moving Skinâ&#x20AC;? at sites throughout Minnesota, including a particularly fruitful photo shoot at Taxidermy Unlimited in Burnsville. No appointment was necessary, she recalled. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just walked in to Taxidermy Unlimited and asked if I could photograph,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The owner Marv (Gaston) was a great guy to talk to, and he let me photograph throughout the building.â&#x20AC;?

Courtney Reints Reints, who works as a production manager at The Lab digital printing studio in Minneapolis, produced â&#x20AC;&#x153;Moving Skinâ&#x20AC;? with an artist initiative grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board. She brought an artistâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s eye, and a philosophical bent, to the taxidermied animals that served as her subjects. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Seized during natureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s docile moments, taxidermy can resurrect an animalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s form as a symbol of achievement, the ultimate document of a huntâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fortune,â&#x20AC;? she said in an artistâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s statement posted on the CO Exhi-

bitions website. â&#x20AC;&#x153;An authentic record of antler, feather and flesh. These inert fragments reveal the evocatively raw and elegantly beautiful nature of nature.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Moving Skinâ&#x20AC;? runs through March 7 at CO Exhibitions located at 1101 Stinson Blvd. in northeast Minneapolis. Admission is free, and all the photos are available for purchase. More about the exhibit is at burlesquedesign.com/temp/ coexhibitions.
