Economic recovery is a phrase passed through mouths of newscasters, politicians and even your neighbors, but what does it really mean? With so many mixed messages, it is hard to break through the clutter of statistics. Overall, analysts predict a period of recovery in the coming years. But how do people in Dakota County know that economic recovery is really happening?

about half of Dakota County residents still feel they will face the same financial situation in the coming year, according to the 2013 Dakota County Resident Survey.

A state-imposed limit on next year’s tax hikes in Minnesota cities has Burnsville officials scrambling to meet their 2014 tax and spending plans. City Council members are particularly concerned about capturing $1.1 million in taxes set to begin flowing into city coffers with expiration of a taxincrement financing district along County Road 42. Council members have long planned to use the money to replenish Burnsville’s infrastructure trust fund, a reserve to help pay for maintenance and repair of aging streets, bridges and parks. The windfall from the expired TIF district offered a chance to rebuild the fund, which has been eroded by minimal contributions during recent lean budget years, council members say. But tightened levy limits passed this spring by the state Legislature limit Burnsville to only a 3 percent levy increase, totaling $708,918. That’s far less than the 6.9 percent, $1.89 million

boost officials say they need in 2014. The money is earmarked for the infrastructure fund, maintaining city services at their current levels and building other reserves. There may be ways around the problem without large cuts in planned taxes and spending. Money could be raised through the city’s debt service and Economic Development Authority levies. Those are exempt from state levy limits, Financial Accounting Director Kelly Strey told the council at its June 4 work session. Leaning harder on the debt service levy would mean issuing more debt for capital projects, which City Manager Heather Johnston described as manageable. The city could increase the amount of debt it repays through the levy, freeing up other funds. “I could live with that,” Council Member Mary Sherry said. The city could also tap its general fund emergency reserve, which stands at about $3 million. Only $2 million is needed in the reserve, council members have said. Frustrated by the levy limits, council members

Lady Katherine closes after mold discovered in studio Piccolo’s Pizzeria appears closed in same mall by Jessica Harper SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Pole dancing fitness studio, Lady Katherine, has closed its Eagan location after mold was discovered in the space at 4178 Pilot Knob Road. The mold issues, which were caused by ice damage last winter, have since been remedied by the owner, said Jon Hohenstein, Eagan community development director. Katherine Fossler, owner of Lady Katherine, has since consolidated the Eagan studio with the Hud-

son, Wis., location. Fossler opened the Eagan location in December 2011 to provide the unique fitness classes south of the river. She said she is looking to reopen the second location in either northern Eagan, Mendota Heights or Inver Grove Heights by this fall. “This has given me an opportunity to move where I wanted to initially,” she said. “Now there’s a lot more choices.” Lady Katherine isn’t the only business that appears to have closed re-

School levy amount debated by Laura Adelmann SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

competition from neighboring school districts, some that provide iPads to every student. Some board members have also expressed concern about the economy and have cautioned against raising taxes beyond the tested tax tolerance level. School Board Member Michelle Volk said she would not vote for any levy that went beyond what research said voters would approve, and she balked at an option in new legislation that allows school boards to switch $300 per pupil of voter-approved levy to a board-approved levy. The switch would allow the board to renew that amount of levy without voter approval. “I would never vote for anything that I’m automatically making a decision for my voters,” Volk said. Ehlers financial adviser Greg Crowe said switching the $300 per pupil levy that voters already approved to one that the board could renew on its own would not be as much of a philosophical shift as it would be if voters had not already approved it and the board decided to override their decision. Volk disagreed. “With all this information I got, it did not change my mind to go and switch $300 to board-approved,” she said. “So if that comes up on an agenda or whatever, there isn’t any rationale for me to change my mind on that principle.” The board requested Superintendent Lisa Snyder provide them with options, costs and more concrete numbers to consider regarding the levy at a 1 p.m. June 28 workshop. The School Board has not made any final decision regarding the levy amount.

Legislative changes may allow Lakeville Schools to reap more funding from about the same amount of an operating levy, according to new analysis reviewed by the School Board on June 18. The revelation led the board to conclude it may be able to both restore and rebuild some school programs with one operating levy question, instead of two as it had been considering. A preliminary analysis shows a new net operating levy could generate more money by taxing residents the same amount based on legislative funding formula changes. According to preliminary estimates by Ehlers, a levy of about $148 on an average $230,000 value home that would have raised about $325 per pupil could generate around $500 per pupil based on legislative changes. A $148 levy amount is projected to be approved by voters, according to Springsted’s research commissioned by the district. Springsted measured the voters’ tax tolerance at $168 on a $230,000 value home. School Board members have spent hours in the past two weeks debating what levy amount they should seek from voters in November, how to ask and the number of questions they should pose. They said parents are conveying concerns about large class sizes, program cuts that include fifth-grade band and art; board members are also concerned about the growing demand for more science, technology, engineering and mathematics in schools. Concerns have been raised about declining Laura Adelmann is at laura. enrollment in Lakeville adelmann@ecm-inc.com. schools, in part driven by

Lakeville community members rally for levy ‘Unite for 194’ group forms by Laura Adelmann SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

A group of Lakeville parents is working to grow support for passage of a levy referendum in the Lakeville Area School District. Unite for 194 formed about a month ago when Lakeville parent of four Sigrid Iversen, former challenger for state Rep. Pat Garofalo’s seat in 2010, called a meeting with friends and acquaintances interested in schools and interested to lead for change. Iversen said parents are frustrated that a new operating levy has not passed in Lakeville for 10 years as three new levy questions have been rejected by voters while two levies were renewed in 2007 and 2010. Over that time, class sizes have grown, fees increased, programs have been slashed and teachers laid off. “Lakeville has suffered from the cuts they’ve made as compared to some of the neighboring schools around them,” Iversen said. Her daughter Johanna Iversen, 17, has open enrolled out of Lakeville to Eagan High School where Sigrid Iversen is a social studies teacher. They made the move, in part, because Johanna wanted more options. “Johanna knew there were more opportunities in Eagan,” Iversen said. Iversen’s other three children are enrolled in Lakeville schools, where she said they have been affected by the funding reductions. Her daughter Isabella Iversen has complained about crowded science labs and less individualized instruction from busy teachers. “When a teacher has

Lakeville community members have formed “Unite for 194,” to help campaign for passage of a levy. Members include Sally Costa, Sigrid Iversen, Andrew Weesner, Amy Willingham and Kelly Barke. (Photo by Laura Adelmann) to manage that many students, I think it’s challenging when kids have individual questions,” Iversen said. The elimination of middle school “houses” also concerns Iversen, who said her son Erik Iversen has had “amazing” teachers who have “tried to work around” the formerly collaborative system, but have found it less effective. “The teachers have done an amazing job,” Iversen said, “but the kids would be more positively affected if they could still use the house method.” Parent Amy Willingham, also a member of Unite for 194, shares the concerns about how the funding has affected students in Lakeville classrooms. Willingham, wife of Lake Marion Elementary physical education teacher Steve Willingham, said their two youngest children have never had a dedicated teacher for art class in school. “The classroom teach-

school district drives up the value of your home and neighborhood,” he said. Romo said some of his friends just moved to Edina because they were frustrated with class sizes and cuts in band, music and art. “They stated that since their kids are not athletes, what are they supposed to do,” Romo wrote. Unite for 194 members have advocated that the Lakeville School Board “go big or go home,” and ask voters for a large operating levy amount that would reduce class sizes and restore programs. School Board members have debated levy amounts ranging from $300 per pupil to $600 per pupil, and hired Springsted to help evaluate a levy question’s likelihood of success. The results showed 58.7 percent of those surveyed would pass a levy that increases taxes another $168 annually for an average value home of $230,000. Sigrid Iversen said the group will support and rally behind any amount the School Board determines. “This is about making our community attractive to bring children in,” she said. “And about making our kids more well-rounded and their potential as adults more well-rounded. Lakeville’s always had a reputation for good schools, and that’s not the case now.”

ers have absorbed some of that art curriculum,” Amy Willingham said. “But it’s not nearly the same as it was for my first daughter.” Their daughter, Leah Willingham, will be a third-grader and likely have a class of 35 students, up from about 28 this year. Amy Willingham said she is concerned there are many children in the district receiving a lower quality eduction than in years past. “We can pick up where our kids may be lacking, and we are wiling to pay for extra curriculum,” Amy Willingham said. “But there are many people in Lakeville who either can’t or won’t be able do to that.

Minnesota teacher is a remarkable resource for families by Joe Nathan SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Judy Galbraith, a former Farmington and west suburban public school teacher, has been a remarkable resource for families and students for 30 years. As the summer starts, I don’t know of a better family activity than checking out the hundreds of books her company, Free Spirit, has published and selecting several to read. Her books have helped children and families with babies through teenage years. Free Spirit spokesperson Anastasia Scott told me that since its founding in 1983, Free Spirit has published about 400 titles and sold “just under 13 million copies so far.” Their books, mostly written by educators, have won many awards from parent and professional groups. (Learn more at www.freespirit.com.) This began in 1976 when Galbraith started teaching for Farmington Public Schools. The district asked her to start a program for gifted and talented students. Several years later she was hired by Intermediate District 287, a consortium of 12 school districts that serves students

from Eden Prairie to Brooklyn Center, St. Louis Park to Westonka. Galbraith looked, but couldn’t find a book that would help gifted young students deal with challenges they faced. So, she wrote one, “Gifted Kids Survival Guide.” That’s gone through several editions and sold about 280,000 copies. Some of her books are for younger children. “Teeth are not for Biting” and “Hands are Not for Hitting” each have sold more than 200,000 copies. Free Spirit’s most popular book is “What Kids Need to Succeed.” Co-authored by Galbraith and the late Peter Benson of Search Institute. It has sold about 655,000 copies. Some Free Spirit books are geared to students with special needs and/or their

families, and educators who work with them. Some of them have been written by parents or students, such as “How to Talk to an Autistic Kid,” written by a 14-year-old. One of my favorites was a book for students about people who succeeded despite some form of disability. That includes the man who did not read well, but founded Kinko’s Duplicating. Another example is the scientist who was the model for a character in the movie “Jurassic Park.” One of Free Spirit’s strengths is that it keeps up with, and sometimes anticipates, trends in society. It has published a popular book by a retired judge on cyberbullying. Galbraith told me that the book helps young people understand “where your rights end and consequences begin.” Free Spirit also published what may be the first survival guide for gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and questioning youths. “We were very frank,” Galbraith said. “We’ve received hundreds of letters from youngsters responding, sometimes agree-

ing, sometimes asking for additional help and guidance.” Another of my favorites is the “Kids Guide to Social Action,” written by Utah teacher Barbara Lewis. Because the book is so popular, it’s been updated and includes an array of projects students did to help their communities and learn important academic skills. Galbraith “reads every word before we publish it, surveys readers” and “welcomes ideas for books from parents, educators and kids.” Her website includes video interviews with authors, such as the award winning Nancy Carlson. Our children loved her books. When I’ve surveyed educators about advice for families over the summer, the single most frequent suggestion is read to and with your children. Free Spirit is a great asset for families wanting to follow that wise advice. Joe Nathan, formerly a Minnesota public school teacher and administrator, directs the Center for School Change.

Letters Education excellence restored To the editor: When I am greeted by 40 young faces in a classroom each day as a teacher, I feel challenged. I’m moved to thank the editors at ECM papers for their recent comments. Public education is the most important investment we can make in our economy. We want the lives of all our young people to turn out well, and investments by our state in reduced class sizes and student excellence are fulfilled in both young people’s success and a flourishing economy. Members of the state Legislature must be saluted for valuing this excellence. The Tax Incidence Study at the Minnesota Department of Revenue shows well-off Minnesotans have been paying a lower tax rate than those of us in lower income brackets. Lawmakers took this into account in passing higher rates for earners of higher incomes, and the result was the ability to invest in educational opportunities for younger Minnesotans. I salute State Sens. Jim Carlson of Burnsville and Eagan and Greg Clausen of Apple Valley and Rosemount for their commitment to excellence. I thank State Reps. Sandra Masin, Laurie Halverson, and Will Morgan for their leadership for our future. This will help Minnesota back toward a leadership position among the states. LARRY KOENCK Eagan

et. We think of bullying as a physical action, but it can be verbal, cyber, and just being mean. Using words, leaders of a possible hierarchy of clique can manipulate others to bully. Bullying can rip pieces of a person apart, but by being kind we can put those pieces back and make that person almost whole. Even so, the person who was bullied will still have those memories and scars of what happened. By being kind to others and preventing bullying we are able to achieve world peace and never bully again.

I also think it is a waste of money to add paved trails and then keep them clear all winter. We don’t even keep all the sidewalks clear in the cities around the park.

serve our access to the outdoors. We bought a stroller with large tires and used unpaved trails portaging him over impassible areas. When he no longer fit a device designed for a toddler, he moved to a wheelchair. About the time Zach outgrew his stroller, we relocated to Minnesota. We’d previously lived in several metropolitan areas and traveled extensively to large U.S. cities where we regularly used paved trails. I was shocked to find few natural areas with accessible paths and many neighborhoods lack sidewalks. Minnesota has a great number of trails but only a few are accessible. I know more than eight families who need and want paved trails. Eight group homes serving disabled Dakota County residents are a few miles from my Apple Valley home. Those with disabilities are from all walks of life. They are young adults and elderly veterans who have served our country, a grandmother who suffered a stroke, a child who fell from a shopping cart or bike, survivors of motor vehicle accidents, a mother with MS, a father with ALS, those born with disability and many more. Diane Pavlak’s assertion paved trails would “ruin the park” is laughable. In 2008, we discovered a family and national treasure in Yellowstone National Park. We are discussing our third trip to Yellowstone. Why? Yellowstone is the most accessible natural spot we’ve found. Each visit, able-bodied families have outnumbered us. I doubt these enjoying Yellowstone would say it was “ruined.” The group opposing the proposed trails in

To the editor: A June 7 letter from a Burnsville woman mistakenly believes that Obamacare will keep people from dying. I disagree and have studied this monstrosity since it came online. Here are a few “facts”: • Minnesota and other states that have signed onto this train wreck are responsible for its implementation, which will be extremely expensive, and all taxpayers will pick up the costs. • Running state exchanges will be an administrative nightmare, requiring a complicated set of rules, mandates, databases and interfaces to establish eligibility, facilitate purchases and medical treatment given. • There are broad, often incoherent statutory requirements and hundreds of new federal regulations, some not written. Many doctors are already “opting out” or retiring rather than cope with these complications. • President Obama lied about so many facets of this monstrosity. He said insurance costs would not increase, and they already have. The report which details this can be found by visiting FixHealthCarePolicy.com or by reading the CBO’s brief, “Medicaid Expansion Will Become More Costly to States and to Taxpayers.” This will make a “broken system” worse. • Gov. Mark Dayton should have joined six other governors who said “no” to this largest tax expansion in history. (There will still be 30 million people without health care, and, God forbid, if the immigration reform bill passes, this number will triple in no time.) Minnesota’s income tax will be one of the highest behind California, Hawaii, and Oregon. And we have to put up with long, difficult winters. I suggest we all move to a better climate and to a state with no tax on income, such as Florida. How any intelligent person can ignore the cover up of the Benghazi

murders; the botched “fast and furious” gun-running in Mexico, which killed hundreds; the intimidation and targeting by the IRS; the millions spent on parties; lavish hotels by government employees (on our dollars); the waste and corruption throughout government, it boggles my mind. And what about the secretive, numerous and improper; unlawful executive orders? This regime is ignoring our rule of law. ALICE KREITZ Eagan

Parents should read with their children To the editor: ECM’s recent editorial on a formula for education success offers a misguided and fatal solution. To get kids to at least grade-level reading by third grade, ECM actually advocates that others do the job that parents refuse to do. This never works. Having the gall to relegate parents as mere “partners in their child’s educational experience,” ECM proposes continued subrogation of children to public schools, volunteer groups, and nonprofits. But this is precisely what the cause of the vicious circle of illiteracy has been: uninvolved parents and inefficient allocation of resources used by disinterested third parties. This model therefore cannot be the solution. It is not about collecting more funds but rather advocating the reversal of the self-centered decisions that parents make to not read with their children daily. How can it be that parents don’t read with their own children? Are they both “too busy” with sports, shopping, Facebook, and TV? Nowadays it should be easy for parents and their kids to sit and enjoy an online story together, cuddle up with a Kindle, or even read something called a “library book.” Overburdened parents can acquire affordable reading software and games that kids can do on their own. While public schools can help children in severe cases, the responsibility before third grade must lie squarely on the parent. But what a joy to have it. Sitting down with one’s own child, enjoying a snack, and talking and reading together is a blessing and responsibility that will alleviate illiteracy. KELLY WING Wyoming

Lakeville businesses raise taxing concerns Legislators address Lakeville Chamber members

by Laura Adelmann SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

State Rep. Will Morgan was in the minority at the Lakeville Chamber of Commerce’s June 13 legislative luncheon. The Democrat from Burnsville was flanked by his frustrated Republican colleagues on a panel before a roomful of Lakeville-area business representatives who posed pointed questions and conveyed concerns about the billions in new taxes on income, businesses and tobacco and the government growth that came out of the 2013 legislative session. State Sen. Dave Thompson, R-Lakeville, said raising $2.1 billion in taxes over the next two years hurts everybody. He said the business-tobusiness warehousing and storage tax (slated for April 2014) will raise costs of everyday items including gasoline and groceries. “I was actually shocked it happened,” Thompson said. “I really didn’t believe there would be that level of overreach.” He said the tax will force warehousing businesses in Duluth, East Grand Forks and Moorhead to move across the border. State Rep. Pat Garofalo, R-Farmington, agreed, calling North Dakota’s

Dave Thompson reviewed the results of the 2013 session with Lakeville Chamber of Commerce members at a May 16 luncheon. (Photo submitted) oil boom devastating to Moorhead because the neighboring state is using its economic expansion of energy to lower taxes. He said three states that tried the warehousing tax repealed it within one year because it was “so destructive.” State Rep. Mary Liz Holberg, R-Lakeville, shared their concerns that the taxes could drive away businesses and jobs that they provide. “We’ve seen no other state in the country take this approach with this wide-ranging increase,”

she said. “Time will tell whether we can survive this or not.” Morgan defended the new taxes, describing how the funding helps provide the things that make Minnesota a good place to live. He said Democratic legislators made a commitment to the environment, early learning, expanding all-day kindergarten and freezing tuition to assist hurting middle-class families. “Nobody has ever come to Minnesota because it was a low-tax state,” Morgan said. “They haven’t

come here for the weather. They’ve come here for the things Minnesota has to provide: a well-educated workforce, good arts community and great outdoors.” Garofalo questioned how forcing independent child care owners into a union, raising the minimum wage and pegging it to inflation helps the business climate or makes the state a desirable place to live. He said Democrats’ theory that spending now eventually pays for itself by producing an educated

and productive workforce does not work, as exemplified by similar legislation in Illinois, California and Rhode Island. Holberg said she is hearing from business owners, including bankers, insurance brokers, attorneys and accountants, who have numerous clients who are trying to find ways to “get out of Minnesota.” “That makes me really nervous,” Holberg said. “I’ve never heard that before.” In an email to supporters, Holberg said the state’s budget beginning July 1 spends nearly $40 billion and includes a fourth tier income tax that she said is aimed at small business owners and makes Minnesota’s income tax rate the second highest in the nation for comparative income. Mark Bloomquist, Little Ceasars Pizza business owner, received applause when he said increasing the minimum wage to $9.50 will kill many businesses. “Twenty percent of my employees will be out of a job,” Bloomquist said. “Because I operate my business on a percent of sales, and that percent can’t change or I’m not going to make any money.” Minnesota’s minimum wage is $6.15 per hour, but most workers at least earn

the federal minimum rate of $7.25 per hour. House Democrats were seeking to increase the minimum wage to $9.50 per hour by 2015, which would make it the highest in the nation, while Senate Democrats were backing an increase to $7.75 an hour. At an impasse, the legislation died, but the debate is expected to be picked up again next year. Business owners challenged legislators to define the business-friendly legislation they will author next session. Morgan encouraged those gathered to provide input to help him address excessive regulations next session to help businesses cut through “pointless red tape.” “Gov. Dayton has said this next session should be the un-session,” Morgan said. Thompson, who has announced he is considering running for governor, said businesses need less regulation and lower tax rates and sales tax rates. “You create a friendly business environment by minimizing taxation, regulation and duplicative things, government bureaucracy,” he said.

Mark Weber dies after three-year cancer battle Rosemount man became an inspiration for people around the world by Tad Johnson SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

A Rosemount man who was the inspiration for legions of people around the world to live life to the fullest died Thursday afternoon, June 13, at his home. Mark Weber, a retired Minnesota Army National Guard lieutenant colonel, became a highly sought-after speaker and accomplished author after he was diagnosed with Stage 4 inoperable neuroendocrine cancer in July 2010 at age 38. Due to his honest and often humorous approach to talking about his cancer, he accepted speaking engagements seemingly whenever he was asked. In his final months, he addressed Army officer graduates at West Point, students at Rosemount High School and veterans and their loved ones at Fort Snelling National Cemetery in St. Paul. The family said on his CaringBridge site that Weber, 41, died surrounded by family at 4:14 p.m. “Mark’s wish to die at home, embraced by love, and a view of his beloved garden was granted to him,” they wrote. The Minnesota National Guard said in a statement that it extended its heartfelt condolences to his family, friends, military colleagues and the countless lives that he touched throughout his courageous battle with cancer. “Mark was an accomplished military leader and devoted husband and father,” the statement said. “He will be missed by all who he encountered, and those of us who had the honor of serving with him in the military are privileged to have known him.” Weber was a regular visitor to Rosemount High School, where his son Matthew attends. Assistant Principal Kim Budde said Weber had an amazing ability to

tell stories and to captivate his audience. “It didn’t matter if there were 1,000 students before him or 40 faculty members, he had you laughing and crying at the same time,” she said. “The students were incredibly captivated, you could hear a pin drop in the gym with 1,000 students. He received standing ovations every time he spoke.” He was interviewed by many media outlets, including a couple of sessions with The Power Trip morning show on KFAN-radio, Minnesota Public Radio and the ABC network show “The View.” A visitation is planned for 4-8 p.m. Thursday, June 20, at Easter Lutheran Church, 4545 Pilot Knob Road, Eagan, as well as one hour prior to the funeral service, which will be held at 10 a.m. Friday, June 21, at Shepherd of the Valley Lutheran Church, 12650 Johnny Cake Ridge Road, Apple Valley. Interment will be at Fort Snelling National Cemetery. Memorials are preferred in lieu of flowers. Weber is survived by his wife, Kristin, and sons Matthew and twins Noah and Joshua.

Cancer diagnosis Weber’s diagnosis came after he underwent a standard medical exam required for his deployment as the military assistant to the incoming Afghanistan minister of the interior. It was a position that the top U.S. commander in Afghanistan, Gen. David Petraeus, personally selected Weber to serve. The exam revealed that Weber, who said he was feeling weak and had lost a few pounds, had a low hemoglobin level. Weber pushed for another test, an endoscopy, and then a CT scan revealed tumors on his liver. “It was just, bam. To get asked by the most powerful and popular

Then, you’re told two weeks later you’re going to die,” he said at the time. “It was beyond a thunderbolt. ... It was like I got woken up from a dream come true by electrocution.” The surgery to remove the cancer was unsuccessful. Weber said when he received his diagnosis he started organizing his letters and journals when he thought he would only have months to live. The result was the selfpublished book “Tell My Sons,” which was released Dec. 7, 2012, to critical and popular acclaim. It was picked up by Random House and re-released in 2013. He wrote the book over the course of about six weeks. He said at the time that his collaborator was dumbfounded that he could do it. “There’s just something about doing what others say cannot be

Kristin Weber with the Minnesota Superior Civilian Service Award. Since Weber worked as public affairs officer for the Joint Chiefs, Dempsey was familiar with Weber’s work. “I’ve been around Mark Weber a lot in some incredibly difficult circumstances,” Dempsey said during the ceremony, “and it was not only what he got done but how he got it done.” He said Weber was one of the finest leaders he’s been around and always put himself second to that of the mission and others around him. In true Mark Weber fashion, he put himself second when it was his turn to speak. “I will focus on one and only one person,” Weber said pausing during his remarks, “a woman who has stood with me every step of the way for the past 18 years, my wife and my closest friend, Kristin. She is my hero. “True strength is about getting things done despite tears and external obstacles,” Weber said, “and you, Kristin Coughlin, epitomize the

definition of the word of strength. By the soldier’s standard for uncommon valor and bravery under mind-crushing conditions, you are a hero in every sense of the word.” After his diagnosis, Weber started Operation True Grit, a nonprofit dedicated to raising awareness in the fight against cancer. “I used to hear flattery when people told me how much our story inspired them or moved them to action,” Weber had said. “Now I see it as my responsibility, and to do so with respect, objectivity and humility. It’s a wonderful feeling to see such goodness come from such misery, and why wouldn’t it be considering what I did in the Army? My mission as a leader is to instill purpose, motivation, and direction. Instead of doing that with Army personnel, equipment, and strategy, I’m doing it with my community.”

done,” he said then. “Even I can’t believe I pulled it off.” The book borrows its title from the song “Tell My Father” from the musical production of “The Civil War.” The song, which recounts the message a dying Union soldier wanted to have related to his father, was sung by Weber and his son Matthew at the Army’s 75th Birthday Celebration in June 2012 at the Minnesota History Center where Weber was the keynote speaker. During his speaking engagements, Weber often attempted to impart that he was no “superman,” but that anyone can battle cancer and accomplish what he has.

District 196 spends higher percentage of funds on classroom instruction In fiscal year 2012, the Rosemount-Apple Valley-Eagan Public Schools had slightly higher total general fund operating expenditures per pupil than the averages for school districts in the state and metro area and lower than the average of the state’s 10 largest districts, according to statewide data on school district expenditures. Each year, the Minnesota Department of Education compiles financial data for all of the nearly 350 operating school districts in the state. Comparable expenditure data for FY 2012 shows that District 196 spent less per pupil than

the averages for the state, metro area and 10 largest districts in five of the 10 expenditure categories, including district-level administration, where District 196 spent $81 per pupil less than the average of the 48 metro-area school districts. Conversely, District 196 spent almost $500 more per pupil on regular instruction compared to the state and metro averages.

The Lakeville School Board will reinstate its personnel committee to help keep public employee contract negotiations private. A rotation of three School Board members will be on the committee, which in part is expected to hash out non-union contracts with executive cabinet members before coming to the full board for discussion and/or a vote. Personnel issues may also be discussed by the full board in a closed session. Board Chair Roz Peterson said the board has always had a personnel committee, but it was dismantled along with a few other ones to allow more input from all board members. She said the arrangement worked fine until recently when they started having to negotiate employee contracts publicly. “We started to have more of these issues that became difficult,” Peter- Laura Adelmann is at son said. “Because it’s laura.adelmann@ecm-inc. people’s lives obviously, com. and having to really sort

of negotiate in public I thought wasn’t necessarily good.” News reports have detailed the board’s efforts to change some school employee contract benefits from defined benefit to defined contribution to end what have been six-figure payouts of accumulated benefits. Under a defined contribution plan, employees receive an annual contribution from the district to a health savings account instead of receiving payouts for accumulated unused sick time. School Board Member Jim Skelly was the only member who argued against the reestablishment of the committee. “I have no interest in the personnel committee,” Skelly said. “I was happy when it went away, and I’ve been satisfied for the most part in the way it has worked.” The issue was discussed in a June 14 School Board retreat as an added agenda item and will be voted on at the June 25 meeting.

jobless peak of 7.5 percent in 2009. Yet it still remains below its pre-recession 2007 level. Vilsack has hope for even better numbers on the horizon. Through the end of 2013, a statewide 1.4 percent increase in employment is expected. To understand the economic state of Dakota County, the metro area must be taken into account. Half of Dakota County residents work within the county, with 15 percent working in Eagan, 8 percent in Burnsville, 5 percent in Apple Valley, 4 percent in Lakeville, 3 percent in Farmington, and 2 percent in Rosemount. The other half of local residents make their way across county lines every day for work. Employment in the metro area pulls 10 percent of Dakota County commuters to Minneapolis, 14 percent to St. Paul, and 8 percent to Bloomington, according to the 2013 Dakota County Resident Survey. Every work day, the population of Minneapolis grows by 100,000 and St. Paul by almost 40,000, while Lakeville and Apple Valley lose almost 30,000 workers.

People may bring their earnings home at night, but they may be buying their morning coffee, eating lunch and running errands at places near their work. Because residents cross county lines to work and spend their money, the economic well-being of Dakota County cannot be examined independently. The mutual relationship between local residents and their commute downtown has boosted Dakota County’s economy. Analysts agree that Dakota County’s proximity to the Twin Cities is one reason its employment has fared better than other counties. Burnsville Economic Development Director Skip Nienhaus cites the city’s accessibility to the metro area as a reason for lower unemployment rates, in addition to the area’s local business diversity. A wider range of work options including restaurants and retail create more opportunities, in comparison with other counties comprised mostly of agricultural and recreational businesses. Dan McElroy, president of Hospitality Minnesota and previous mayor and state legislator from Burnsville, agrees

with Nienhaus. “The recession impacts people differently, though Dakota County has fared slightly better than the statewide average,� McElroy said.

FECKE, from 1A

taught for seven years in her home state before moving with husband Bob to Minnesota, where he took a job with Toro in Bloomington. Fecke started as a parent volunteer at Edward Neill Elementary before being hired there as a longterm substitute teacher in 1982. She was hired full time at Vista View Elementary in 1984. Fecke has also taught at Rahn Elementary and in Chaska for a year. She’s been an assistant principal at Hid-

den Valley Elementary and was interim principal of Vista View in 2002-03 before being appointed Sky Oaks principal in July 2004. Teaching — the ability to influence a child for an entire school year — is an “honor,� Fecke said. Being a principal ups the ante, but without the direct control a teacher can exert on the classroom, Fecke said. “As a principal, you don’t always see those immediate results of your decision-making,� she said. “That, I think, weighs heavily. ... It makes you not take things facetiously. You just don’t have the luxury of saying, ‘Well, I can come back and fix it.’ You don’t always know.� Fecke says the Sky Oaks staff has made measurable progress in closing achievement gaps among the district’s most diverse student body. According to state Department of Education figures from February, Sky Oaks had 221 black students (African immigrants and African-American), 215 Hispanic students and 174 white students. “Our kids are making progress,� Fecke said. “It shows on our math assessments. We don’t have our MCA scores yet (for the recently completed school year). But we know we’re making progress and we know we’re closing the gap, and we know there’s a gap and we’re mindful and respectful of it. We change our strategies to meet the needs of the kids we have.� Education has benefitted from a greater emphasis on assessments, Fecke believes. “We’re into diagnosing, and that has really changed in my career,� she said.

that’s been at the forefront of the district’s social and demographic change. “I can get real weepy about it,� Fecke said. “I can honestly say I’ve never met a parent, ever, who does not want the best for their child. There’s where the responsibility comes, because you’re entrusted with these wonderful little people. Oh, my goodness — you better bring your ‘A’ game.� The Illinois native

On the rise Business in Dakota County also appears to be on the rise. The health care sector, often seen as recessionproof, is expected to continue expanding. One in 10 jobs in Dakota County are in this sector. Dakota County is also home to many construction and manufacturing jobs. These sectors make up 15 percent of jobs within the county. These too are expected to rise. However, they have not surpassed their pre-recession levels of employment. Throughout the past year, Minnesota has gained more than 50,000 jobs. While the state has typically fared better than others throughout the recession, the past few months of job growth have fallen below the national average. A cold and wet spring has dampened business growth, especially for entertainment, outdoor activities, and seasonal shopping. Overall, the extended winter this year slowed business for construction,

leisure and hospitality, and local government, according to DEED.

Road to recovery The idea of economic recovery is not just an aspiration but a real possibility for Dakota County. Economic recovery is not simply an equation but a sum of parts including employment rates, weather impacts, business sector growth, location and diverse opportunities. Although Dakota County lost almost 600 employers and 4,067 jobs from 2007 to 2012, unemployment rates are at a five-year low and businesses are slowly growing, according to the Metropolitan Council. This past year the weather hurt economic recovery, but Dakota County’s proximity to Minneapolis and St. Paul and the county’s diverse business community have been key to its survival. Although Dakota County has not recovered to its pre-recession levels, local analysts agree that the numbers add up to a positive future. Sarah Allen can be reached at dc.intern@ecm-inc.com. Kristina Ericksen can be reached at av.intern@ecminc.com.

Sky Oaks — labeled a “racially identifiable� school by the Department of Education — has received extra funding through compensatory aid given to high-poverty schools in Minnesota. At Sky Oaks, 73 percent of students this year were eligible for free or discounted meals. “There are incredible financial supports provided outside of the regular supports, because we have students who have needs,� Fecke said. “We’ve been able to hire reading interventionists and math interventionists. We talk about ‘targeted instruction.’ That (compensatory aid) is one more way we’re able to support that specific instruction to meet student needs.� Closing the achievement gap is a “slow, steady climb,� said Fecke, a mother of two and grandmother of three who lives in Lakeville. “We’re reflecting what’s happening across the country,� she said. “But like everywhere else, you plan, you do things strategically, and you get the results.�

New principal Sky Oaks’ newly hired principal is Drew Goeldner, who begins July 1. He was principal of Rice Lake Middle School in Wisconsin. Goeldner began his teaching career in District 191 as a substitute. He has been a teacher, math coordinator and curriculum coach in St. Paul Public Schools and principal of Haugen Elementary in Rice Lake.

10A June 21, 2013 SUN THISWEEK - Burnsville - Eagan

BUDGET, from 1A directed Johnston to assemble a plan to stay within them without slashing planned spending and city services. “Stay the course,” Mayor Elizabeth Kautz said. Burnsville has typically kept its annual tax increases well below levy limits set by state lawmakers. This year, the D e m o c r at - c o n t ro l l e d Legislature imposed the 3 percent limit while also

increasing Local Government Aid. Burnsville, one of many suburbs that hasn’t qualified for LGA in years, will get about $86,000 in 2014. “Good lord. Buy a police car with that,” Sherry said dismissively. A total of $557,083 is needed next year to fund wage and benefit increases and maintain city services, officials say. Another $1.34 million in new taxes is earmarked for the infrastructure fund ($1.1 million), the emerald

ash borer fund ($50,000), the street-maintenance capital fund ($10,581), the parks capital fund ($45,000), the equipment and vehicles and information technology funds ($110,677) and the Economic Development Authority operations fund ($25,000). The city has skimped on its contributions to those funds, which has to stop, Sherry said. “Ever since I’ve been on the council we’ve been delaying or reducing

funding. And I’m very, very concerned. ... I think we’ve pushed the envelope about as far as it can go on delaying, particularly when it comes to our infrastructure, our roads and our parks, absolutely.” More delays would lead to tax spikes in future years, Kautz said. “I would further add, not only would it take a spike, but in the meantime the city would get terribly run down in the process, and I do not want that

to be happening on my watch,” Sherry said. Raising $1.89 million entirely through a 6.9 percent tax hike would increase taxes on a medianvalued home ($184,600 in 2013 and $191,200 in 2014) by $40 a year, according to the city. Taxes on $1 million in commercial property would rise by $64 a year. Johnston will deliver her funding plan for the $1.89 million at the council’s Aug. 13 work session. The council will certify

a maximum tax levy on Sept. 3. Final budget and levy approval are scheduled for Dec. 3. Information on 2014 budget planning is at the city’s website, www.burnsville.org. The city is planning an online budget “open house,” with video. John Gessner can be reached at (952) 846-2031 or email john.gessner@ecm-inc.com.

I’m back in the > swim of things. I was speaking to my swim team when an intense pain in my chest spread throughout my entire body. I knew something was wrong—but I never imagined at my age that I could have a life-threatening aortic dissection in my heart. Emergency heart surgery saved my life. I’m so thankful I went to Fairview Ridges Hospital. + Chris, Fairview Ridges Hospital patient and Eagan High School swim coach

SUN THISWEEK - Burnsville - Eagan June 21, 2013 13A

SEWING, from 1A provides baby supplies for new mothers in need. Only a year old, the sewing group is the brainchild of 18-year-old Eagan resident Kjerstin Narvesen, who set out to bridge generations for a common good â&#x20AC;&#x201D; an effort that recently earned her a Girl Scout Gold Award, the organizationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s highest honor. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wanted to let seniors know they are important to the community by providing a meaningful activity for them,â&#x20AC;? Narvesen said. To earn the Gold Award, Narvesen was required to spend at least 80 hours planning and imple-

menting a project that innovatively addressed a need in the community. Girl Scouts in grades 10â&#x20AC;&#x201C;12 must fulfill leadership, career exploration and community service requirements to be eligible for the award. Narvesenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s project not only provides goods for children in need but also instills a sense of pride and purpose in the women at The Rivers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It makes us feel good and feel like we are needed because we are contributing like we used to,â&#x20AC;? resident Marjorie Quiggle said. Narvesen formed the group in July 2012 after coordinating with Bundles of Love and The Riversâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;

directors. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our residents enjoy sewing and giving back to the community, so this was a great addition,â&#x20AC;? assistant activities director Jean Torje said. Torje added that the group has had a â&#x20AC;&#x153;huge turnoutâ&#x20AC;? since its creation. Narvesen joins the women each week as they make washcloths, burp cloths, baby clothes and blankets out of donated fabric, patterns and thread. Narvesen graduated from Burnsville High School this month and plans to hand the program to Community of Joy Churchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Women Ministry this fall when she beings her freshman year at

North Dakota State University. Roseanne Eastling, a Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ministry member at the Burnsville church, said her group, which has already begun to assist with the program, enjoys working with residents at The Rivers and welcomes the opportunity to help young women in need. Narvesen said she hopes more charitable sewing groups will be created in the future at other senior living facilities. Jessica Harper is at jessica. harper@ecm-inc.com or facebook.com/sunthisweek.

Lightning dethroned in final seconds Eden Prairie prevails 9-8 in state boys lacrosse final by Mike Shaughnessy SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Eastview kept taking Eden Prairie’s best shots and coming back – until Eden Prairie’s final shot left the Lightning with no time to come back. The Lightning held on gamely to its dream of winning back-to-back state boys lacrosse championships before a goal by Eden Prairie freshman J.D. Spielman with 12.4 seconds remaining gave the Eagles a 9-8 victory in the title game Saturday night at Chanhassen High School. Eastview never led in the game but on four occasions came back to tie it. The last tie was 8-8, after goals by Michael Stillings and Ryan McNamara 34 seconds apart brought the Lightning back even with 5 minutes, 18 seconds to play. “When it was 8-8 and we had the ball, I was pumped,” McNamara said. “I thought we were going to be able to do it. But they made a great play at the end.” Eden Prairie was awarded possession with 2:45 remaining after Eastview’s Brett Schweiger fired a shot wide of the Eagles’ goal. After calling timeout with 2:27 left, Eden Prairie held the ball until Nic Bentz found Spielman open on the back side of the formation for a close-range shot. Eastview was able to

get it to Tanner Hamill for a last-second shot, but the Eden Prairie defense blocked it. It was the first victory for Eden Prairie (18-0) in five appearances in the state championship game. Eastview (14-4), which defeated Eden Prairie 10-4 in last year’s state final, dubbed this season as “The Return.” The Lightning indeed made it back to the state tournament, although it didn’t get the outcome it sought. “We lost a lot of players from last year’s team,” McNamara said. “But we also had a sophomore goalie step up and some junior defensemen step up. We definitely thought we had a chance to win the state tournament again.” Slow starts were a theme for Eastview, which scored only two first-quarter goals in its three state tournament games. The Lightning was able to recover and beat Orono (105) and Champlin Park (106) in the first two rounds as the defense locked down on the opponent. “It’s all about backside support and on-theball defense,” coach Tim Roche said following the semifinal victory over Champlin Park. “When we’re doing those well, we know we’re on our game. We’re very good when we can see what’s in front of us.” The Lightning never did completely recover from its slow start against Eden Prairie. The Eagles scored the first three goals of the championship game before the Lightning’s Mitch Beattie put his team on the scoreboard with 2:01 remaining in the first

Keeping pace at state tough for Wildcats Eagan golfers place sixth in Class AAA by Mike Shaughnessy

Eastview hires Reiff to lead volleyball program

SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

The state tournament is much more competitive than anything most high school golfers will see all season. That wasn’t exactly a surprise to the Eagan girls team, which finished sixth in the Class AAA tourney last week. Eagan was coming off a season-best team score of 341 in the final round of the Section 3AAA tournament at Bunker Hills Golf Club in Coon Rapids. The state meet was held at the same course June 11-12. If Eagan had matched its low score of the season each of the two days at state, it would have finished fifth. It would have taken another major drop in scores for the Wildcats to contend for the championship, won by Edina with a two-day score of 644. Eagan shot 347 the first day but struggled the second day, coming in with 361 for a 708 total. A weather delay in the second round, which pushed back the girls tee times 90 minutes, probably didn’t do anything good for the Wildcats’ nerves. Wildcats senior Mallory Drenttel overcame a rough start to tie for 26th place individually. Drenttel shot 46 on her first nine holes, but came back with 38 on her second nine for an 84. She shot 83 in the second round. Shelby Braun, also a senior, had 85-89–174 to tie for 45th. Senior Erin Klucas had 84-94–178 and tied for 54th. Also competing for the Wildcats at state were eighth-grader Molly Ploetz (tie for 71st, 94-95– 189), sophomore Karli Simon (76th, 98-96–194) and junior Ina San Jose

Opatz improves by 10 Eastview junior Kari Opatz shot 77 in the second round – a 10-stroke improvement over her first round – to earn a tie for 19th at state. Opatz’s 36-hole total of 164 was six strokes lower than her score at the 2012 state meet,

where she tied for 24th. She qualified for this year’s tournament by winning the Section 3AAA individual championship. Opatz’s teammate, junior Madi Roe, shot 82-88–170 to tie for 40th place. That was a 20-stroke improvement over her finish at state in

2012.

Summer doesn’t mean an end to sports activity at local high schools, as several of them have coaching vacancies to fill for the 2013-14 school year. Eastview has filled its volleyball head coaching position, hiring Ted Reiff, who was head coach at BenildeSt. Margaret’s the last three years. Reiff takes over for Becky Egan, who was named head coach at Hamline University in March. Before coaching at BSM, Reiff was head coach at Holy Angels for eight years. He previously coached at the University of Wisconsin, Augsburg College, Minnesota State, Mankato, Prior Lake and Lake Crystal-Wellcome Memorial high schools. He also has coached in several club programs, including Northern Lights Volleyball and M1 Volleyball. “I couldn’t be more excited to become a member of the Eastview community and to step into the head coaching role of Eastview volleyball,” Reiff said in a news release from the school. “This is one of the premier volleyball programs in Minnesota and I look forward to taking the baton from coach Egan.” Burnsville High School is seeking a softball coach for the second consecutive year after declining to renew the contract of Aaron Vail, who coached the Blaze to a 9-10 record last season. Vail, who announced on his Twitter account that he would not be back at Burnsville, said the news took him by surprise. His previous coaching stops included North St. Paul High School and Dakota County Technical College.

Nationals

Balance Nationals track and field meet last weekend in Greensboro, N.C. Anderson placed 11th in the girls 5,000-meter race in 17 minutes, 12.53 seconds and was 19th in the 2-mile run in 10:52.46. She is scheduled to run the 5,000 in the USA Track and Field Junior Championships this weekend in Des Moines, Iowa. Earlier this month Anderson placed second in the 3,200 meters and eighth in the 1,600 at the state Class AA meet at Hamline University. She will go to the University of Minnesota in the fall and compete in cross country and track.

Baseball In Minnesota, there’s little if any downtime between the end of the high school baseball season and the beginning of the American Legion season. This weekend the Burnsville Cobras will hold their annual Snake Pit Invitational at Alimagnet Park. Burnsville will play Blue Springs, Mo., at 7:30 p.m. Friday. On Saturday, the Cobras will play Andover at 9 a.m. and Eden Prairie at 7:30 p.m. The final round of the tournament will be Sunday. The Cobras have to do without Tyler Hanson and Cooper Maas for at least part of the weekend because they will play in the Minnesota High School All-Star Series on Friday and Saturday in Chaska. The Cobras consist of most of the 2013 Burnsville High School baseball team, which finished second in the Section 3AAA tournament, plus college players and BHS alumni Bo Hellquist and Tyler Hill. Burnsville was ranked second in this week’s state American Legion baseball poll.

Blaze lacrosse 1-2 at state tourney Linder lowers time, raises her profile

Burnsville falls to Armstrong in consolation final

Eagan resident is two-time state champ in 400 dash

by Mike Shaughnessy SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Burnsville’s first trip to the state girls lacrosse tournament ended with a weather-delayed 14-12 loss to Robbinsdale Armstrong in the consolation championship game. Saturday’s game at Chaska High School was to conclude at about the time Lakeville North and Blake were warming up for the championship game at Chanhassen High. But thunderstorms rolled through the area, delaying play at both sites. The championship game and consolation final ended up taking place at about the same time. On the subject of time, that’s a commodity that ran short for Burnsville in the consolation final. The Blaze, which trailed 12-7 with 10 minutes, 31 seconds left, scored five of the game’s last seven goals. Goals by Bailey Childs and Madison Maas put Burnsville ahead 2-0 just 2:32 into the game. Armstrong scored six goals in the next 9:03 – three by Mari Verbeten – to take a lead it would not give up. The Blaze cut Armstrong’s lead to two goals on five occasions but could not get closer. Junior midfielder Lindsey Coleman led Burnsville with three goals and four assists, scoring on the only three shots she took.

After a 16-12 loss to Lakeville North in the state quarterfinals, Burnsville defeated Champlin Park 11-9 in the consolation semifinals June 13. Coleman and Childs each scored three goals for the Blaze, with each completing her hat trick after Champlin Park tied the game 9-9 with nine minutes remaining. Emily Skogseth had a goal and assist, and Samantha Vikstrom had two assists. Lakeville North became the first South Sub-

LACROSSE, from 14A with the goal that tied the game 8-8. The Lightning didn’t have an answer for the last-minute goal by Spielman, one of two sons of Minnesota Vikings general manager Rick Spielman who play lacrosse for Eden Prairie. Saturday’s game was the third state final for Eastview, which was runner-up in 2009. The Lightning was trying to become the fifth

urban Conference team to reach the state championship game when it defeated No. 1-seeded Eden Prairie 13-12 in overtime in the semifinal round. Blake defeated North 1412 to earn its fourth consecutive state championship. Coleman, who had eight goals and five assists in three games at state, was named to the all-tournament team. Burnsville (15-3) closed its most successful season, which included a regular-season victory over Lakeville North and second-place finish in the South Suburban Conference. The Blaze’s only

school to win two consecutive championships; the last to do it was Benilde-St. Margaret’s in 2009-10. McNamara and Hamill, who each scored seven goals in the state tournament, were named to the alltournament team, as was Beattie, who had four goals and three assists in three games. McNamara, who scored 52 goals this season, including 12 in the Section 3 championship game, will follow the Lightning from a distance

regular-season loss was by one goal to SSC champion Lakeville South. The girls lacrosse team graduated five seniors – Maas, defender Joelle Strand, midfielder Alexa Pearson, attacker Tiana Khamvongsa and goalie Jaclyn Hinz. Coleman, Childs, Nelson, Skogseth, Vikstrom and Wittchow are among the players who will be back next season as Burnsville tries to reach the state tournament again.

Like most people who compete on the track, Megan Linder has a favorite race – but it’s not the one at which she has had the most success. Linder prefers the shorter sprints, the 100and 200-meter races, as do many fans. As for the 400 – where she’s a back-to-back state Class AA girls champion – that’s a little more like work. “My favorite is the 200 because it’s that last (sprint) race of the night, and it’s a lot easier than the four,” Linder said. “The 400 is absolutely draining, mentally and physically.” But Linder also is a pragmatist, and the Eagan resident and Cretin-Derham Hall junior realizes the 400 is the key to her track and field future. “I think (the 400) is what I’m doing in college,” she said. Linder won the 400 in 55.62 seconds at the state meet June 8 at Hamline University, about ninetenths of a second faster than her winning time in 2012. It’s also her personal record in the event; her previous PR was the day before in the state preliminaries. She needed to be faster because her first-place time from last year would have been good for fifth place this year. “I think last year there was a little less pressure,” she said. “I thought, ‘Maybe I can do it. Just give your best, no matter what happens.’ “This year there was more pressure because I was expected to win. I just kept saying, ‘I believe I can do it.’ ” After winning the state championship in the 400 in 2012, Linder increased her

weight training in the offseason. She said she was concerned the bad weather that plagued most spring sports in April and May would set her back. “It was hard missing all of those easy, non-pressure meets (early in the season) because they help you build momentum for the end of the season,” Linder said. Once she got back to the state meet, Linder said she had a good idea of how to prepare. “I just focused on really being relaxed,” she said. “A lot of people at the state level are tense and nervous, and it affects your running form. “I don’t focus on anyone else because in the end that doesn’t get you where you need to be. I focus on what I need to hit to get where I want to be.” In the 200, Linder’s favorite race, she finished fourth at state in 25.26. Osseo senior Phillis Webb won in 24.83. Three sprinters with Eagan ties finished almost in a dead heat in the 200 final. Eagan ninth-grader Maddie Gourley was third, .002 ahead of Linder. Eagan junior Emerald Egwim was fifth, .01 behind Linder. Linder was seventh in the 100 in 12.56 but was only .02 from finishing third. She scored 21 of Cretin-Derham Hall’s 30 points. After taking a week off from training, Linder planned to be back at it this week. She is scheduled to compete in the USA Track and Field National Junior Olympic Championships in North Carolina in July. Linder said she would like to run track at a school in California or the southern United States. And next season? “I think I’m just going to try to get some more PRs next year,” she said.

John Caughlan recalls water rising through the floorboards of his truck as he drove through floodwaters to the promontory where he shot this image. “There’s not much that deters me” from a photo shoot, he said. (Photo submitted)

For festival’s featured artist, photography is an adventure Nature photographer John Caughlan revels in extreme weather by Andrew Miller SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

John Caughlan’s approach to photography is part Ansel Adams and part Indiana Jones. Caughlan has braved torrential rains, blizzards and floods in his quest to capture nature’s most beautiful vistas.

Impending severe weather conditions? Count him in. “If there’s a really big blizzard coming, I’ll aim right for the middle of the blizzard,” he said. “There’s nothing that will hinder me.” Caughlan, of St. Cloud, is the featured artist at this year’s Eagan Art Festival,

which runs June 29-30 in the city’s Central Park. At the festival he’ll have on offer an array of nature photographs he’s taken on his many excursions hiking and camping on Minnesota’s North Shore. Caughlan, who works as a cook by day, started shooting photos about 10 years ago. He’s published

two coffee table books of his photography, including “Split Rock Lighthouse: A Photographer’s Perspective.” Along with nature photos he’s also fond of rural imagery – old barns, tractors and pickup trucks. “My wife and I both grew up in small towns, and I kind of like the old,

John Caughlan, pictured with his wife Missy, specializes in nature photographs, many of which he’s taken on his many hiking and camping excursions on Minnesota’s North Shore. (Photo submitted) antique-y look of stuff,” he said. He distributes his work under the name Superior Photographs – a nod to Lake Superior and the Superior Hiking Trail, the setting of much of his

work. Samples of Caughlan’s work are available on his website, www.superiorphotographs.com. Email Andrew Miller at andrew.miller@ecm-inc.com.
