James and Virginia Clardy found their dream home in 1956, on 2.5 acres at 1116 Circle High Drive in rural Burnsville Township. Trouble followed immediately. The Clardys had their driveway blocked repeatedly with dirt and debris. They heard neighbors threaten to burn their house. One night there were guns, said Cathy Clardy Patterson, one of the couple’s six children. Despite the indignities that came with being Burnsville’s first AfricanAmerican family, James and Virginia never regret-

Virginia Clardy, a pioneering African-American resident of Burnsville, was also a nurse, a political activist and a die-hard Minnesota Vikings fan. (Submitted photo) ted it, Clardy Patterson said. “My parents grew up in an era where the central

belief was that the reason for prejudice and racial animus was just a lack of exposure,” she said. “They

were part of a movement throughout the nation of integrationists, which basically said that if we integrated neighborhoods, people will then learn that we’re all the same. “And although they moved here for better schools, that was only part of the reason they moved here, because they believed they had a civic obligation to be part of that movement. They thought that it was a step to make this a more perfect union.” Virginia lived in the house until last November, when she went to Scottsdale, Ariz., to be with Cathy. Virginia died July 20 in Scottsdale at age 95. She was a nurse, a state health official, a political activist, a world traveler and a mother of six college graduates, some with advanced degrees. Mourners at Virginia’s

funeral in St. Paul Aug. 9 included fellow co-founders of Grace United Methodist Church in Burnsville, which opened in 1962. “She was just so lively,” Clardy Patterson said. “But even more important than that, Mother was a gift to anybody whose life she walked into. It didn’t matter what your station in life was. It didn’t matter what your age was. Mother engaged you wherever you were.” Born Virginia Mae Price on Dec. 16, 1917, she was raised in Kansas City, Mo., where she graduated from high school with honors and was elected homecoming queen. She became a registered nurse in 1940 and worked with a program fighting communicable diseases that took her to Arkansas, See CLARDY, 18A

One man is dead and another injured after an early-morning shooting Tuesday in Burnsville, police said. It occurred at around 2 a.m. on the 2100 block of East 117th Street, police Sgt. Rory Bochniak said. Police identified the dead man as 23-year-old Abdifatah Ahmed Mahumod. A woman with the two men drove them to the SuperAmerica at Cliff and Slater roads in Eagan, seeking help. Eagan police responded, and when

they found the shooting had occurred in Burnsville, contacted Burnsville police, Bochniak said. Burnsville police found one man dead in the vehicle and the other injured, Bochniak said. Police withheld the injured man’s identity. “We have no suspects,” Bochniak said Tuesday morning. Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Christi Carpenter at 952-895-4592. — John Gessner

It doesn’t take much to elicit opinions about cable service in Burnsville. An online city survey in March drew responses from 592 people — a healthy number, according to Sue Buske, a consultant working on a cable needs assessment in Burnsville. The survey showed mixed feelings about cable provider Comcast, with which the city is negotiating a new 15-year cable franchise agreement. The assessment is part of a review of Comcast’s service the city will use in negotiations. Comcast and

Naming rights — and the revenue that goes with them — have proved an elusive catch for the Burnsville Performing Arts Center, which the city opened in 2009. But a deal is finally at hand, involving a storied local company with a rich philanthropic history. The city and Burnsville-based Ames Construction Inc. hope to soon announce a formal agreement granting Ames the naming rights, the city announced Monday. City Council members celebrated the news at their Tuesday work session, deflecting credit to Mayor Elizabeth Kautz. She personally cultivated the deal with principals of the family-owned company, colleagues said. Council Member Mary

Sherry credited the mayor’s “persistence and graciousness.” “Very few companies could afford to do it, and they really did step up,” Council Member Bill Coughlin said. “What a wonderful name that will be attached to the BPAC.” The tentative agreement calls for Ames’ name to grace the arts and event center, which includes a 1,014-seat main theater, a black box theater, meeting spaces and an art gallery. City officials remain tight-lipped about what kind of money might be involved. Terms of the deal will be solidified this fall, the city said. An old marketing brochure from Friends of the Burnsville Performing Arts Center may or may not offer a clue. The nonprofit, which has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for the center in cash, labor and equipment, was at one time peddling full naming rights

a predecessor company have held the franchise since January 2000. The company is seeking renewal, which by federal law obligates the city to enter a three-year negotiation. The next step in the review is a public hearing on cable service to be held at the Aug. 20 City Council meeting. It begins at 6:30 p.m. at City Hall, 100 Civic Center Parkway. Some folks don’t have much love for their capable provider, suggested the online survey and a series of focus groups that drew 67 people. A third or more of subscribers rated Comcast as “poor” or “very poor” in three areas: cable rates (75.9 percent), ease of getting a customer-service rep on the phone (36.1 See CABLE, 18A

Eastview High grad served as high school diplomat by Jessica Harper SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

At age 17, one Eagan teen has already gotten a taste of what it’s like to be a U.S. diplomat in a foreign land. Eastview High School grad Emily Jewell spent three weeks in Japan last month as part of the U.S. High School Diplomats program, a nonprofit organization that aims to expose U.S. and Japanese students to one another’s culture with the goal of creating international understanding. “I had never been abroad before,” Jewell said. “That was very excit-

“I didn’t think it would be so Westernized,” she said. Jewell said she was amazed by Japan’s fascination and love for American actors. Her first stop was Tokyo where Jewell and her fellow diplomats met with top officials at various corporate sponsors and at the U.S. Embassy. Meeting U.S. Ambassador John Roos was among Jewell’s favorite aspects of the trip. “He’s totally down to earth and really wanted to pass down his knowledge,” she said. Then it was off to Kyoto where they visited ancient temples, and on to Kobe where they stayed with host families. Jewell said she felt at See DIPLOMAT, 19A

Eagan officials consider 2.7 percent tax levy increase Most homeowners may pay slightly more in property taxes in 2014 due, in part, to rising home values by Jessica Harper SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Eagan residents could see a small increase in the city’s portion of their property taxes next year due to rising home values and a potential increase in the city tax levy. City officials are considering a 2.7 percent increase in the city’s payable 2014 tax levy – a move that would enable them to meet the rising cost of health care and pay for a 1.8 percent wage increase. This would bring the total tax levy to $29.08 million. The City Council weighed in on the proposed preliminary tax levy during its special meeting Aug. 13. Most homeowners will see the city’s portion of their property taxes increase slightly in 2014 due to rising home values, said Tom Pepper, Eagan’s chief financial officer. The average home value is expected to climb from $220,252 in 2013 to $225,289 in 2014. Under this scenario, the owner of an average-valued home can expect to pay about

$22 more in the city’s portion of property taxes in 2014. This estimate is prior to the state’s market value exclusion, which offers homeowners an exclusion that lowers their taxable market value. If a home value remains the same in 2014, the homeowner will likely pay the same in the city’s portion of property taxes. The rise in property values marks the first increase since 2009, and is expected to continue to climb in the years to come, Pepper said. Though homeowners may see a small increase next year, property taxes in Eagan have historically been lower than those in many neighboring cities. In 2013, for instance, the owner of a $220,252 Burnsville home paid $140 more toward the city’s portion of property taxes in Burnsville than the owner of the same valued property in Eagan, according to a 2013 state auditor’s report.

including a 12 percent increase in health care costs. Of the $1.05 million increase in expenditures, $659,600 were due to the rise in health insurance premiums and a 1.8 percent wage increase. Police sergeants, maintenance and clerical workers are expected to receive a 1 percent increase in January and another 1 percent raise in July. The police officers union has not yet settled on a wage agreement. In addition to the pay increases, the proposed budget contains a few new positions. The police department is proposing a full-time crime analyst/ computer forensic examiner position beginning in September. The department previously had the position but eliminated it in 2008 when the existing employee resigned. The fire department proposed replacing its existing three-person eighthour duty crew with two two-person 10-hour duty crews. Rising costs Although city officials Eagan’s proposed levy are looking to raise wages increase would help the this year, most city emcity cover rising expenses, ployees have experienced

Burnsville tax hike estimated at 5.7 percent Most is ‘fresh money’ by John Gessner SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

A 2014 city levy increase of 5.7 percent, most of which won’t hit current taxpayers, is expected when the Burnsville City Council adopts its maximum levy Sept. 3. Most of the increase — 4 percent — comes from scheduled decertification of a tax-increment financing district, which will return some properties along County Road 42 to the tax rolls. The council has long planned to use that $1.1 million to replenish the city’s infrastructure trust fund, which is dedicated to replacing and repairing aging streets and parks. The remaining 1.7 percent increase is slated for maintaining current

city service levels, feeding other project funds and contributing $50,000 to an ongoing effort to combat emerald ash borer. The total proposed levy increase is $1.56 million. The council can approve a lower but not a higher amount when it adopts its 2014 budget and levy Dec. 3. Of the $1.56 million, only 0.8 percent, or $211,041, comes from existing taxpayers. Taxes from new construction account for a similar amount. Most of the 5.7 percent levy hike is “fresh money,� Council Member Dan Kealey said at an Aug. 13 work session, where council members agreed on the amount. The total proposed levy is $29.07 million. City taxes on an average-valued Burnsville home ($191,200) would rise by 3.8 percent, or $30,

next year. The increase assumes a 3.6 percent rise in home value — the city average — from 2013 to 2014. Taxes on $1 million in commercial property are projected to fall by 0.6 percent, or $56. Average commercial valuations in Burnsville have remained flat. Officials worried in June about levy limits newly imposed by the 2013 Legislature and whether the city’s planned tax hike would exceed its limit. New information from the state Department of Revenue shows Burnsville’s limit to be $1 million higher than originally calculated, according to the city. Even at 5.7 percent, the city is 0.6 percent below its limit. John Gessner can be reached at 952-846-2031 or email john.gessner@ecm-inc.com.

pay freezes in the past several years with the exception of several union groups that had previously negotiated pay raises. Since 2009, the city has reduced staff positions by about 5 percent – from 243 full-time equivalent positions to 232.3 in 2012, Pepper said. In addition to personnel expenses, the city incurred an additional $83,000 in expenditures for elections and $249,600 in building inspection expenses related to Paragon Outlet and other developments. The inspection expenses are completely covered by additional revenues paid by the developers. The city’s increased expenses will be partially offset by a projected savings of $130,000 due to a sales tax exemption recently passed by the Legislature. Under the proposed budget, the city’s general fund expenditures are expected to increase 3.7 percent to $29.92 million in 2014. There are no fee increases proposed. The proposed general fund balance is $13.9 million, which is 46.5 percent

of Eagan’s proposed 2014 general fund budget and slightly above the city’s target of between 40 and 45 percent. This money is used for operating capital to ensure the city has enough cash flow. Mayor Mike Maguire said he believes city officials should consider drawing down the fund balance to the target range to avoid raising the tax levy. Several metro cities will receive Local Government Aid for the first time in decades, enabling them to lower their tax levy, but Eagan won’t be among them. It must, however, abide by the same 3 percent levy limit as those who do receive LGA – a rule that Maguire took issue with at Tuesday’s meeting. “Even though we won’t go near the limit anyway, those levy limits shouldn’t be applied to cities like ours,� Maguire said. Eagan’s proposed tax levy is $45,000 under the state limit. 2014 likely won’t be the only year city officials consider raising the tax levy. Pepper predicts Ea-

gan’s budget will grow to an estimated $30.8 million in 2015 and would require a 3.6 percent increase in the tax levy, putting it at $23.59 million. Although city officials are considering an increase in the levy, Eagan has a history of keeping a tight rein on its spending compared with similarsized communities. In 2011, Eagan spent $721 per capita, while nearby Burnsville spent $827, according to the latest state auditor’s report. Of similar sized cities, only Plymouth and Blaine spent less per capita than Eagan at $719 and $635, respectively. The preliminary levy is just a benchmark and must be approved by Sept. 16. A truth and taxation hearing will be held in December prior to the certification of a final payable 2014 property tax levy. The final levy can be lower than the preliminary but not higher.

Incumbents face one challenger in District 196 race Angrimson wants higher teacher pay Incumbents in the Rosemount-Apple ValleyEagan School Board race will face only one challenger this November. Apple Valley resident Craig Angrimson filed for candidacy this week along with incumbents Art Coulson, Gary Huusko and Mike Roseen. The four contenders will face off for three four-year term seats on the District 196 School Board. “It’s something I’ve wanted to do all my life,� Angrimson, 57, said. “The community has given me so much. I felt it was time to give back.� He added that he hopes to provide a new perspective to the board. The father of a 16-yearold Eastview High School junior, Angrimson said he believes District 196 is a strong school district but

could improve in some areas. Specifically, Angrimson said he hopes to push for pay increases for district teachers. “The teachers in 196 are great, but I think they aren’t taken care of the way they should be,� he said. Angrimson noted that district teachers incurred pay freezes for several years, and commended Superintendent Jane Berenz for accepting a freeze along with them. If elected, Angrimson said he will work to ensure teachers receive equitable wages. Angrimson said he believes his experience as president of the Local 35 International Union of Operating Engineers will provide an edge in negotiating with educator

unions. An increased tax levy referendum is one of the ways Angrimson said he believes the district can provide pay increases to teachers. Angrimson said he supports the district’s $30 million levy referendum, which will also be on the ballot in November. He said he would support a higher increase than the $10 million that would be added to $20 million in levy renewals. An Apple Valley resident for 21 years, Angrimson said it was District 196’s reputation that brought him to the community. “It’s rated high in education and arts, and it seems every year it has a (Minnesota) teacher of the year,� he said. — Jessica Harper

Opinion Honoring a broader array of students’ skills by Joe Nathan SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Powerful, personal and passionate. That’s how I’d describe more than 20 responses to a column I wrote recommending a “second opinion” in medicine and education. All over Minnesota, and the U.S., people described themselves or their children as benefiting from a second view. Here are a few examples and what this can mean for schools. Bill wrote: “My son was the kind of good-with-your-hands-bad-at-academics kid you describe. … Adopted at age 7, (he) is a carpenter, and the smartest guy with his hands I know.” Karen, now an internationally recognized college professor recalled: “My third-grade teacher told my mother that I wasn’t college material! Amazing.” Thomas explained, “I was in shop class in seventh grade and couldn’t plane a piece of wood straight while other kids I thought were dumb were making incredible inlaid chessboards. The teacher took me aside one day and said, ‘Even though you’re not so good

Sun Thisweek Columnist

Joe Nathan at this, you are good at the things that are important for being a success in life.’… I’ve (spent) a good portion of my career … advocating for the kids in shop class who made the great chessboards!” Matthew wrote: “Cursive was a major problem with my teachers – not because of the product, but because of how I held my pencil. I had fluid, excellent writing, but my grip was ‘wrong.’ This resulted in calls home in second grade and a recommendation to be in the ‘Cursive Club,’ … a remedial cursive session in place of recess one day a week, in fifth grade. “My parents thought it was ridiculous, so they (and I) ignored it. … I have unique, clear, elegant cursive (and I only write in cursive) that has served me well. Years ago … I made a font of

a print version of my handwriting. It’s been downloaded over 400,000 times. “In addition, I was recommended to go to speech therapy when I was about 12. Turned out my teeth had to be adjusted a bit. I had two removed. By 15 or so I was in great shape. I love public speaking, it’s one of my favorite things.” Tom, a newspaper editor, recalled: “As for shop class, I was a C student there, too. I did much better in more classical studies like history, English and math. In some ways, I wish it were otherwise. When something goes wrong on the home front, I often say to my wife, ‘Call the man,’ instead of trying to fix it myself.” Gary, a veteran educator, believes, “one size does not fit all, or even most. Ideally, every student would have an Individual Education Plan. … Each student has his or her unique interests, skills, learning styles, and personalities. … As kids … we knew that we were better at some things than others and other kids were better than we were at other things.” Gary recommended Ken Robinson’s illustrated lecture on changing schools (www.youtube.com/

watch?v=zDZFcDGpL4U). Rosanne, formerly a Florida principal, responded: “The more alternatives we have for our students, the more success stories we’ll have. … Given the right school environment, all students can succeed.” Wayne, a veteran award-winning educator, wisely concluded: “A serious shortcoming of conventional schooling is that nonacademic students (not good at reading and/or math) are treated as poor or failures. That takes an enormous toll on a student’s sense of self when, in fact, the student may be strong in nonacademic areas. In schools, those areas just don’t count for much – a tragedy. … When will we learn and act upon the fact that not all students learn the same? Or that schools need to recognize, prize and reward many kinds of learning? To do otherwise continues an inhumane aspect of schooling.” Joe Nathan, formerly a Minnesota Public School teacher and administrator, directs the Center for School Change. Reactions welcome, joe@centerforschoolchange.org. Columns reflect the opinion of the author.

Letters Obermueller has proactive approach To the editor: It seems that thin skin is not reserved to incumbents. After a letter criticizing U.S. Rep. John Kline, R-Burnsville, for an after-the-fact remedy to help corporations gain candidates for precious slots in their tables of organization, defenders of the incumbent used their best defense, a sharp offense, in attacks against a possible opponent in 2014, Mike Obermueller. One letter criticized Obermueller’s candidacy by citing two of his former supporters who are now also running against Kline. These candidacies show the vulnerability of the incumbent. People are lining up to oppose him. Mr. Kline’s strategy for an improved economy is a job and career fair, the main beneficiaries of which may be the corporations who took many applications. Obermueller’s strategy involves funding preschool education and enacting promised funding for special education, steps the incumbent has so far rejected, even in his role as chair of the House Committee on Education and the Workforce. I think this illustrates a basic difference between Obermueller and the incumbent. Obermueller

works for a solution that empowers young people, well before they are damaged by an economy Kline has helped to create. Kline seeks symbolic solutions like job fairs, more likely to help corporations than the wide expanse of people who are unemployed and underemployed themselves, even in an improving economy. NANCY HALL Burnsville

Kline should be a leader To the editor: I am writing to ask U.S. Rep. John Kline to recognize the reality and urgency of the climate crisis and work to pass legislation that supports curbing greenhouse gas emissions. Did he have a chance to read the New York Times or Star Tribune (Aug. 6) article by former EPA administrators Ruckelshaus, Thomas, Reilly and Whitman? These Republicans correctly state that “there is no longer any credible scientific debate about the basic facts” and “the costs of inaction are undeniable.” Kline’s leadership in Congress could be pivotal to building support for a market-based approach that does not grow government, returns all revenue to households, does not rely on costly

subsidies, and does not have government pick the winners and losers. According to the former EPA administrators “a market-based approach, like a carbon tax, would be the best path to reducing greenhouse-gas emissions.” Conservatives such as Bob Inglis, George Schultz, Art Laffer and Kevin Hassett have also endorsed this approach.

Kline’s student loan stunt To the editor: Our Federal Reserve lends our tax money to banks at 0.5 percent over prime. Shouldn’t our tax money be lent to our kids, the students, at the same rate we give to banks? However, U.S. Rep. John Kline, R-Burnsville, makes laws to give our tax money first to the banks at the low rate and then allow these banks to lend this money to our kids at 4-8 percent over prime. Consequently student loans rates will double, while the banks profit again at taxpayer expense. Students in other countries don’t need loans because their government makes their education free. They value educating engineers or doctors. However, Kline only promotes the free education to learn how

to be a solider and make war. We listen to him and ended up with the fox in charge of the hen house. Now we are paying for letting Kline pull the wool over our eyes. Think, how an honest representative working for us in Washington would help us. JOE NIEDERMAYR Lakeville

Cities unlikely to see property tax relief

right. Many communities around Minnesota receive local government aid (LGA) and could use those increased payments to lower their overall levy. Unfortunately, our communities do not receive LGA. That means that there’s no new government money coming in that would allow the cities of Apple Valley, Rosemount and Coates to lower their property tax levies. In fact, it was decided at Monday night’s school board meeting that the Apple Valley-EaganRosemount School District will be asking taxpayers for $10 million per year – which works out to about $184 for the owner of a $225,000 home, the average for the School District. If passed, that would mean a property tax increase for residents in our area. I hope this clears up the issue for you.

To the editor: I’ve received a number of questions this summer about property taxes. There has been a lot of talk this summer about property taxes, and with it comes some confusion about what it would mean for our area. Despite claims that property taxes are going down, it’s unlikely that homeowners in Apple Valley, Rosemount and Coates are going to see any relief on their property tax statements. The DFL majority is claiming that increas- Anna Wills ing government aid to State representative, Dislocal cities and counties trict 57B qualifies as property tax relief. In a sense, they are

Crime Man, woman accused of robbing, assaulting man at Eagan hotel by Jessica Harper SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Two people face felony charges after allegedly assaulting, imprisoning and robbing a man at an Eagan hotel. Nathan Scott Hayden of South St. Paul and Jennifer Marlene Anderson of Eagan were charged Aug. 8 with first-degree aggravated robbery for their role in the alleged attack. Hayden was also charged with false imprisonment and terroristic threats, both felonies. According to the criminal complaint, Hayden, 35, walked into the alleged victim’s hotel room through a door that was ajar at about midnight on July 9 and demanded money and guns. The alleged victim recognized Hayden, who had spoken to him outside the hotel a day earlier. Hayden approached the alleged victim just as he ended a phone call about an impending divorce and told the man he should feel good about himself because he has nice things like the

new truck he just purchased. Hayden then followed the man into his hotel Jennifer room and Anderson continued to comment on the man’s nice things. The man is an avid gun collector and had several gun cases inside his room and truck. Hayden mentioned he was staying in the next room and asked if the alleged victim would pay for his room for another night. The man declined, and Hayden eventually left. About a minute after Hayden barged into the room, three other men allegedly entered to assist Hayden in the robbery. One of the men lifted the man’s shirt to check for concealed weapons and then searched his pockets. The alleged victim told the men he was scared, and they told him he was “(expletive) too much,” and to “mellow out.” Hayden then allegedly grabbed the man, held a

knife to his throat and told him, “ Yo u ’ r e going to die, boy.” One of the other men Nathan allegedly Hayden held another knife to the man’s neck and pushed him onto the bed where he was repeatedly punched in his side, according to the complaint. For the next hour and a half to two hours, the men attempted to get money from the alleged victim. The man only had about $26 in cash. Hayden allegedly held a knife to the man’s neck and made him get onto his laptop to attempt to transfer money from his account to Hayden’s. When the man told Hayden he didn’t have any money in his account, Hayden allegedly made the man pull up his account to show him the balance. While Hayden attempted to get money, the other three men ransacked the man’s hotel room, the complaint said.

Suspecting the alleged victim was stalling, all four men became upset, hit him repeatedly and told him he would die and that his family would die if he called police, the complaint said. At one point Hayden allegedly demanded that the man transfer money from his wife’s account, but by that time, the transfer time had expired and he was locked out of the account. Giving up on the money transfer, the men loaded the alleged victim’s cellphone, gun supplies, gun optics and other property into his truck. Hayden then took the keys, title and other documentation for the truck and left in the vehicle with the other three men. Once they left, the man reported the robbery to police, who arrived a short time later. The man told them a woman named Jen or Jennifer stayed with Hayden in the room next to his, and had also asked him to pay for her room. A police investigation determined that An-

derson, 40, had stayed in the room with Hayden. The alleged victim, who identified Anderson in a police lineup, said he believes Anderson set up the robbery. He said he saw her enter his room, take his personal property and act as a lookout during the alleged robbery. During an interview with police, Anderson, who was in jail for an unrelated charge, admitted that Hayden came by her room and told her the alleged victim owed him money, according to the complaint. She also told police Hayden came to the hotel with three other men and she left with them in the alleged victim’s truck. The alleged victim’s vehicle was found parked outside a St. Paul residence and was taken by police as evidence. Banking documents and fingerprints inside the vehicle led police to Hayden, who was also identified by the alleged victim in a police lineup. Hayden was arrested on Aug. 6 and while being driven to jail alleged-

ly said Anderson called him and while he was helping her with something, three other men robbed the alleged victim, stole the man’s truck and made Hayden drive. Hayden said he went to a St. Paul residence where they unloaded the ammunition and parked the vehicle. If convicted, Hayden and Anderson could face up to 20 years in prison for the robbery charge. Hayden could face up to three years in prison if convicted of false imprisonment and up to five years if convicted of terroristic threats. Hayden has previously been convicted of second degree-assault and terroristic threats. Anderson has numerous drug convictions between 2002 and 2012. Police are investigating the other three men involved in the alleged robbery. Jessica Harper is at jess i c a . h a r p e r @ e c m - i n c. com or facebook.com/ sunthisweek.

Woman gets six months for stealing from Eagan employer by Jessica Harper SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

A woman received about six months in jail for stealing nearly $80,000 from her former Eagan employer. Dawn Westphal, 43, formerly of Rosemount, was sentenced in Dakota County District Court on Aug. 12 to 180 days in jail and 10 years of probation

for stealing the funds while working as an office manager at an Eagan telecommunications company. District Judge Jerome Abrams also ordered Westphal to pay $88,391 in restitution. Westphal, now living in Minot, N.D., pleaded guilty on May 28 to five counts of theft by swindle. Four other counts were dismissed.

Westphal told police she stole $79,945 from her employer from February 2006 to January 2011 because she couldn’t make the mortgage payments on her home after becoming divorced in 2005. She admitted that she took the money by writing checks to herself and depositing them into her personal account. Westphal then falsified the business’

ledger. Westphal told police she was too proud to ask for help and knew subconsciously she would never pay back the funds. She said she wanted to take full responsibility for the theft. After she resigned from the company, irregularities were found in the business’ bank accounts that Westphal was responsible for

managing and it was determined that some funds were deposited into Westphal’s personal bank account. When the business sent Westphal a demand for payment, she responded with a check for about $8,550 and stated that she would attempt to reimburse the remaining amount at a rate of $1,100 per month, according to

the criminal complaint. Westphal further stated that if they are not able to agree to the terms, she will “turn myself in to the authorities.” Eagan police were contacted by the business in May 2011. Jessica Harper is at jessica. harper@ecm-inc.com or facebook.com/sunthisweek.

A frozen fruit bar to change the world Growing student-run business moves to Lakeville by Kristina Ericksen SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

St. Olaf senior Erik Brust is reluctant to call himself a CEO. “I guess that’s the title I’d give myself,” he said. Brust is studying economics at St. Olaf College, though much of his learning has been taking place outside of the classroom. In addition to being a fulltime student, the young CEO also runs a frozen fruit bar business called JonnyPops. JonnyPops are all-natural frozen fruit bars with a change-the-world mentality. Unlike most frozen fruit bars, JonnyPops are locally-made, are free of any dyes or preservatives and are made predominantly of fruit. The gourmet fruit bars come in four flavors: Summer Strawberry, Merry Mountain Berry, Coconut Pineapple Paradise and Choco-Latte. In keeping with the company’s “a better pop for a better world” philosophy, JonnyPops inscribe inspirational messages on each popsicle stick to leave customers with a positive take away. JonnyPops are the brainchild of Mahtomedi High School graduate Brust and was founded during his first year at St. Olaf when he and a few friends got to talk-

ing about entrepreneurial ideas. Brust had a desire to start a natural-foods company, an idea he thought up with his cousin Jonathan “Jonny” Jeffrey. The cousins’ dream never materialized; Jonathan, who had a full ride at Duke University, died unexpectedly from a drug overdose six months after they wrote up their business plan together. He was only 21 years old. Brust founded JonnyPops, named in remembrance of his cousin, with Ole friends Connor Wray, of Eagan; Andrew Sather, and James Marshall during their first year at school. Together they experimented with ingredients in a blender and worked with a gourmet chef to fine-tune their recipes. By their sophomore year, they were supplying frozen fruit pops to St. Olaf’s coffee shop and Hogan Brothers’ Acoustic Café in Northfield. With raving reviews and support from the community, the co-founders worked on JonnyPops throughout the school year, putting in 30-40 hours per week while balancing school work and extracurriculars. “It’s definitely a challenge many don’t have,” co-founder Marshall said. “But we’re happy to have it.”

Fortunately for its founders, JonnyPops’ busiest season is summer. All four have been working full-time the past few months and have even hired staff members to help with the growing demand.

Moving on up Since business has boomed over the past two years, JonnyPops outgrew its original Northfield location. As of this summer it operates out of Lakeville. The move allows for better accessibility to the metro area and will also be closer to home for the 20 and 21-year-olds next summer. After they graduate, all four plan to work for the company full time. Their goal is to be able to make a living off of JonnyPops. “We’re all on board and want to continue growing with the company,” Marshall said. “We all love it.” While working with three best friends may sound like a risky business move, Brust finds the partnership beneficial. “We’re all really good friends so we already had that built-in trust when we began,” Brust said. “We knew that we’d have our friendship and business relationships. They have to be separate.” Brust says the com-

Co-founder and vice president of production Andrew Sather shows a Summer Strawberry, the best-selling flavor of JonnyPops, an all-natural frozen fruit bar created by four St. Olaf students. Only a few years old, the company has already moved to a bigger space in Lakeville. JonnyPops was founded by Eric Brust and friends in memory of his late cousin Jonathan “Jonny” Jeffrey. (Photo submitted) pany has become more organized and streamlined in the past year. They’ve also narrowed their focus, hoping to expand into local co-ops and high-end grocery stores come April. Recently they’ve began selling JonnyPops in California and Alaska. The young CEO has his eyes set on the Midwest for the next expansion. For Brust, it’s also a way to remember Jonathan. “It’s a dedication to my cousin,” Brust said. “We want to help kids who are battling drug addiction.”

Fulfilling their promise to make the world better one fruit bar at a time, JonnyPops donates a portion of proceeds to the Hazelden Foundation, an addiction treatment center where Jonathan received help. It’s a chance for Brust to bring some positivity to the loss of his cousin. “We’re a feel-good company,” Brust said. “We get to see people at their best, when they’re enjoying a JonnyPop. No one’s ever mad eating ice cream.” JonnyPops are available in more than 300 lo-

cations, including Holiday gas stations, local businesses around the metro area, as well as at the Minnesota Zoo, Cascade Bay Aquatic Center and Apple Valley Aquatic Center. JonnyPops also frequents many seasonal venues such as farmers markets, the Minneapolis lakes and various summer festivals. Bars cost about $3.

Stolen Montana SUV recovered after cross-country journey A stolen SUV logged some long miles before it was located by Apple Valley police last week. The vehicle – a beige 2006 Lincoln Navigator – traveled more than 1,000 miles in just over a day’s time. Reported stolen Aug. 7 in Helena, Mont., it was

tracked down the following day near McAndrews Road and Galaxie Avenue in Apple Valley. According to Apple Valley police, an employee of a gas station at County Road 42 and Johnny Cake Ridge Road called 911 on Aug. 8 to report that a man driving an SUV had

pumped gas and drove off without paying. A patrol officer located the vehicle a short time later on McAndrews Road, but the driver of the SUV fled, leading police on a chase through Apple Valley, Eagan, Burnsville and Bloomington. During the chase in

Bloomington, police lost sight of the vehicle, and the SUV was later found abandoned on the 8700 block of Dupont Avenue. No damage to the vehicle was reported. While the suspect – a 25-year-old Worthington, Minn., man – managed to evade arrest in the police

chase, he was later arrested in Bloomington on an unrelated warrant. According to Montana-based KXLH news, the Lincoln Navigator was reported stolen Aug. 7 by a woman who’d parked it on the street near her place of employment in Helena. She had locked the vehicle,

but the keys to the SUV were stolen out of her purse sometime during the work day, she told police. On Monday, Apple Valley police were making arrangements for the owner to pick up the recovered SUV. —Andrew Miller

Community harvest Partnership Garden at SES brings community together

by Andrew Miller SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

There are good things growing at the Partnership Garden in Apple Valley, and it’s about more than just food. Created in 2010 and located on the School of Environmental Studies campus, the garden is as much about building community as it is about growing vegetables, according to Pat Schoenecker, one of the garden’s founders. “Our goal is to serve as an inspiration and to educate,� Schoenecker said. “The idea all along has been to inspire people that gardening is interesting.� The all-organic garden saw its first growing season in 2011. Circular in shape, it features 17 individual “keyhole� plots surrounded by taller field crops, which are tended to by everyone involved. There’s a beehive on the periphery of the garden, maintained by Pinewood Elementary Principal Cris Town, which helps with pollination. And high school students from the School of Environmental Studies have lent a hand as well – the trellis, cement bird bath and rainwater barrel were all installed by students at the school working on their senior service projects. After getting the garden up and running, the core group hosted a tour for School District 196 principals with the idea of inspiring them to start gardens at their schools, and Highland Elementary has since started its own garden. The gardeners have also hosted a hands-

On Aug. 10, a public open house offered gardeners a chance to showcase what they’ve got growing. Kale chips and savory quinoa salad – made with kale and quinoa grown in the garden – were on offer for guests to sample. Brent Iliof, who’s maintained a plot in the garden since its inception, took a soil sample and tended to the variety of peppers in his keyhole plot during the open house. “I’ve got six different types of peppers – a pepper in every color, basi-

cally,� he said. “It’s fun because you can experiment. This place definitely beats going to the grocery store.� The group, which donates part of its harvest to local food shelves, is always seeking new gardeners and volunteers. Partnership Garden participants meet the second Thursday of each month, 7-8:30 p.m., at Shepherd of the Valley Lutheran Church, 12650 Johnny Cake Ridge Road.

Lakeville sends state letter of intent for Q-Comp teacher pay system School Board review still needed by Laura Adelmann SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

The Lakeville School District has mailed a letter of intent to the Minnesota Department of Education to apply for the state’s teacher pay-for-performance system. An analysis by the Pioneer Press newspaper in March found that 99 percent of the 10,000 educators participating in “Quality Compensation” (Q-Comp) received bonuses in 2012. Metro teachers in districts using Q-Comp received an average $1,864 in bonuses, that paper reported in March. Superintendent Lisa Snyder wrote in an administrative newsletter to district administration that she and Education Minnesota-Lakeville President Don Sinner have signed the letter of intent for QComp. She said the district intends to reconvene a committee to review and update a previous plan that was never implemented in the district. She added that the district “will not formally bring this to the board un-

District Communications Director Linda Swanson said the letter the district sent is not public until it has been approved by the School Board. Board Member Terry Lind said the district rejected implementing QComp when it was created in 2005 to tie teacher compensation to student achievement. “At that time the Legislature wasn’t going to put any money into it,” he said. Board Chair Roz Peterson said the proposal is in its infancy and would require stakeholder involvement and board approval to be implemented. She said the district is “clearly financially strapped” and Q-Comp may be a creative way to compensate effective teachers in the classroom. “I do think the public appreciates performance and tie it to pay when it comes to public employees,” she said. “The board is always open to looking at new ways of doing things and see if they make sense.”

According to a Department of Education template of the letter of intent, the district must indicate an amount of money to set aside for staff development during the transition year to develop an alternative teacher professional pay system.

Farmington police chase ends with three damaged police cars SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

The Farmington Police Department participated in its own demolition derby of sorts last week while chasing a suspect along Highway 3. Patrick Christopher Armstrong, 28, of Rosemount, led police on a chase that resulted in damage to three Farmington police cars on Aug. 6. According to the police report, Armstrong called officers in Farmington stating that he was in his vehicle in Rambling River Park and he had a gun, knife and sword. He said he wanted four squad cars to show up and he was going to force officers to kill him when they arrived. He also warned he was a large man and would be combative. “He made claims of being armed and suicidal,” Farmington Police Chief Brian Lindquist said. “It obviously gave us quite a bit of concern because parks tend to be a place where there are lots of young people.” When officers ar-

rived at the park, they found Armstrong in an eastern parking lot and dispatch made attempts to contact him again. “He made some rather disparaging comments about hurting police and himself,” Lindquist said. “We tried to close down roads around him before he went mobile.” But before they were able to surround him, Armstrong fled northbound on Highway 3, swerving in and out of traffic. Police officers conducted pursuit intervention techniques, where police used their own vehicles to strike Armstrong’s car, which eventually forced the vehicle off the road near Empire Township. Three police cars made contact with Armstrong’s vehicle. The first marked police vehicle forced the suspect’s car to do a 360-degree turn and the second car suffered front-end damage while attempting to push the suspect’s car off the road. The third car suffered damage to its passenger side. Armstrong exited his vehicle, but refused to comply with officers’ orders. Officers discharged their stun guns

three times before incapacitating Armstrong and he was taken into custody. “There were no injuries to police or himself,” Lindquist said. “It was just a bad day for property.” A search of Armstrong’s car revealed a folding knife in the passenger seat, a knife in the glove box, a small sword in the trunk and an opened bottle of whiskey in the front passenger door. The department didn’t charge him with an alcohol-related offense. The police report did not mention finding a gun. He was charged with fleeing a peace officer and obstructing the legal process, both felonies, which carry a maximum combined sentence of eight years in custody and/or a $15,000 fine. Two of the vehicles are expected to be repaired, but Lindquist said, “I haven’t heard back from insurance, but considering the damage and how much the car is worth, there’s a high probability it will be totaled.” Email Andy Rogers at andy.rogers@ecm-inc. com.

Dakota County Fair Bull incident tests police Explorers by Andy Rogers SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

It was a relatively busy evening at the Dakota County Fair on Aug. 7 with people chomping down on corn dogs, mingling among the livestock and seeing who won the blue ribbons. But the mood was about to turn from joy to chaos quickly. Fairgoer Keith Haskell was chatting with officers at the Dakota County Sheriff’s Office booth when they heard a call come out over the radio about a bull on the move. “Everyone raised an eyebrow immediately and stood still for just a second,� Haskell said. There are cattle all over the fairgrounds, but the grandstand entertainment that night was a rodeo. Haskell works as an addiction counselor and program director with Reformers Unanimous Institutional, but he’s spent more than a decade working with fire and rescue and as an EMT. He ran toward the chaos to see if he could help. He watched as the loose bull ran north on the fairgrounds toward the FurEver Wild exhibit. Seconds later police Explorers, members of a program for teens exploring a career in law enforcement, yelled to everyone to move out of the way as the bull returned and started heading south. Haskell’s attention went toward a woman face down in a pool of blood near the scooter rental building.

Rosemount’s Gage Litzner, a captain in the Explorers program, was one of the first responders to the scene of a woman trampled by a loose bull at the Dakota County Fair last week. (Photo submitted) “She had hurt her head School graduate and Ex- and were part of the lines of and there was a pool of plorer Gage Litzner, 18, had communication. blood three to four feet perhaps the most critical They were as active as across,� Haskell said. “We role as the one stabilizing anyone during the recovery heard there were multiple Goggins’ head until she was after the bull injured eight injuries, but this was prior- airlifted away. fairgoers. ity No. 1 and Life Flight was Explorers are not li“They didn’t panic,� said already being dispatched.� censed police officers, but Dakota County Detective Haskell’s wife, Kathleen, uniformed youths and Dawanna Witt, who runs gathered members of the young adults ages 15-20 the Explorer program. “If police Explorers to form who go through months of they were afraid, I don’t a perimeter while one of law enforcement training. think anyone noticed it.

When the bull got loose, planned event – complete Grove’s Barbara Goggins. Explorers helped contain chaos. People were hurt. But Recent Rosemount High the crowd and direct traffic they relied on their training

and remained calm.� But not everyone had an experience like Litzner. He was watching out for some fence jumpers when he heard the call of a loose bull. He saw Goggins get trampled and was one of the first to the scene. “I was holding the spine still and keeping her wounds from bleeding as much as I could,� Litzner said. “All my training came to mind.� Goggins was conscious, but confused. She knew a bull ran into her. “She got the date right and she knew she was from Cottage Grove, but she got the president wrong,� Haskell said. “As time progressed, she grew a little more concerned.� Litzner has been with the Explorers program since he was 15. He’s a captain in the program, the highest rank. He’s planned on going into law enforcement since he was young and will start his second semester of law enforcement studies this fall at Inver Hills Community College. The education he’s received with the Explorers has been critical. “I just tuned out all the people around me,� Litzner said. “I’ve never been through anything quite like this. It’s definitely a different incident.� Litzner knew stabilizing the injured woman’s head was critical, and he was there until she was put into the ambulance. “You don’t trade off the head,� Haskell said. “There’s no need to switch.

Even when the medics get here, he had the head. He was the one leading the way, and he was perfect. Even with all the training in the world, some people freeze that first time.� It was an unprecedented situation for the first responders. Haskell has been involved with fatal car crashes and fires along with two tornadoes but he’s never been in a situation where the chaos was spread out within a 400-yard area. “There were guys in the department I was talking to who had never been a part of anything like that,� Haskell said. “The injuries were so spread out. It was frantic, but I was impressed. I was impressed on how fast everything was set up. It was like 60 seconds and they had just about everything figured out.� Goggins was airlifted to Hennepin County Medical Center in Minneapolis and upgraded to satisfactory condition late last week. Dakota County Sheriff Explorer program participants spend 10-20 hours a week working with police departments, fire departments and emergency medical personnel. The fair also had Explorer posts from Eagan, Apple Valley and South St. Paul. “These kids really want to get into law enforcement, and this was proof that the training we do is working,� Witt said.

Loose bull injureds fairgoers, deputy Deputy fires contact rounds into animal by Andy Rogers SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

A sense of panic ran through the Dakota County Fairgrounds on Wednesday night when an event put on by a Princeton-based bull riding company turned dangerous. During a Bulls and Barrels event at the Dakota County Fair, at approximately 8:24 p.m. Aug. 7, a bull named Red 43 broke through its pen and ran into a crowd of fair at-

tendees, injuring eight bystanders and a county deputy. Barbara Goggins of Cottage Grove was airlifted to Hennepin County Medical Center in Minneapolis with a head injury. By late last week, Goggins was upgraded to satisfactory condition. One of the injured was Dakota County Deputy Matthew Regis, who fired two shots at the bull at close range in an attempt to stop Red 43 before being trampled. “He was doing his job,” Dakota County Sheriff Dave Bellows said. “I thought he demonstrated a lot of courage. But

we found a 2,000 pound animal didn’t respond to gun shots as much as we hoped.” Red 43 left his pen near the grandstand and headed to the north gate, where Regis confronted the bull in a large, open area while officers created a line between the bull and the fairgoers. Red 43 then went back south. “The deputy acted accordingly,” Bellows said. “I support what he did. That’s his job, to stop the bull from injuring other people. The way he describes it, it was contact rounds. The gun was touching the bull’s hide

when he fired. There was no chance for an errant round.” Regis suffered a sprained ankle. He was later treated and released from Fairview Ridges Hospital in Burnsville. Paramedics on the scene tended to the other eight individuals. After about 10 to 15 minutes, rodeo staff regained control of the bull. “Ten, 15 minutes can feel like an eternity if he gets into the wrong area,” Bellows said. Rodeo staff received cheers from the crowd as they corralled Red 43 back into his pen.

“It was probably one of the busiest Wednesday nights I’ve ever seen,” Bellows said. “The potential for any large scale injuries were avoided. He was close to the main road and there were so many people. I feel it was very fortunate.” The incident happened during an event by Rice Bull Riding Co., which hails from Princeton. The bull was owned by Gold Medal Cattle Company in Wisconsin. According to the Gold Medal Cattle Company, the bull was euthanized the next day. The fair wasn’t the same after the incident. “It was a topic of con-

versation for everybody,” fair board member Chris Wright said. “It’s really sad that it did happen. We feel bad for the people that got injured. I’m glad it wasn’t more serious than it was, but it did affect the whole fair.” When asked if the fair was planning on scheduling a rodeo again in the future, Wright said “It’s still up for discussion. Generally after the fair we’ll all get together to recap. I would not be opposed to doing another rodeo.” Email Andy Rogers at andy.rogers@ecm-inc.com.

Derby attendance up a bit too much Derby crowded, concert not as much by Andy Rogers SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Whether to invite the rodeo back to the Dakota County Fair grandstand next year isn’t the only item up for discussion for 2014. The demolition derby on Friday and Saturday

nights was packed. Maybe a little too packed. “It got crowded,” fair board member and grandstand director Chris Wright said. “We’re going to look into our ticket sales to get a little more information, but we’re going to have to adjust the ticket numbers. We just won’t be able to sell as many. It was too much stress for everybody. We want to have a good experience in the grandstand.”

The demolition derby used to be five days, but this year it was down to two nights and one Sunday matinee. When the derby began at 7 p.m., lines were long. By the time many spectators entered the grandstand, it was hard to find a group of seats together. “There were more seats up higher in the grandstand, but unless you walked up there, you didn’t know about it,”

Wright said. “The world has changed a little bit, too. I guess people don’t want to sit as close to strangers.” Earlier in the week, the Love and Theft concert went off without a hitch on Aug. 7, but fair officials admitted they would have liked to see more people in attendance. “I thought more people might come out, but it was a good learning experience to find out how concerts

are run,” Wright said. It was the first live concert of its size in the grandstand at the Dakota County Fair. Despite the lower than expected attendance, she said the fair will probably hold more concerts in the future. Wright also said the new donkey races on Aug. 5 were a hit, and the tractor pull on Aug. 6 had the largest crowd in a long time, despite rain in the

forecast. During a rodeo on Aug. 6, a bull escaped its pen and injured eight fairgoers including a Dakota County deputy before it was captured by rodeo officials. Fair officials are reviewing whether to hold another rodeo in the future. Email Andy Rogers at andy.rogers@ecm-inc.com.

Welcome to the ‘sudsburbs’ Metro area brewers draft plans to quench thirsts of craft beer drinkers by T.W. Budig SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Across the suburbs the alchemy of malt, barley, hops, yeast and water is producing liquid gold. Craft beer is being brewed in Minnetonka, St. Louis Park, Brooklyn Center, Roseville, Lino Lakes, with breweries planned in other suburbs. In Stillwater, Lift Bridge – the first brewery in the city since Prohibition, the company claims – produces craft beer for the St. Croix Valley. “They’re popping up like crazy,” Michael Agnew, an adjunct professor at the University of Minnesota, who teaches a craft beer course, said of craft breweries in Minnesota. In a sense, the growth of small breweries is as much a leap back as forward. A century or so ago, small breweries dotted Minnesota. Little Falls had Little Falls Brewing. Pine City boasted Buselmeyer Brewery. Sauk Centre had Ahrentz & Co. Caledonia was home to the Philip Wagner brewery, and the P. Schebach brewery, according to Manfred Friedrich and Donald Bull’s Register of United States Breweries 1876 to 1976. According to the Department of Public Safety, currently the state has 62 licensed malt beverage manufacturers. Six are large breweries – such as Surly Brewing Company in Brooklyn Center, rolling out about 20,000 barrels of beer last year – with 37 small breweries and 19 retail brew pubs.

Variety offered The number of small breweries has shot up. Between 2010 and 2012, DPS issued 26 small brewery licenses. Surly Brewing Company President Omar Ansari recalled a different brewing scene seven years ago when Surly began brewing. “We were only the second production brewery in the Twin Cities,” Ansari said. Agnew and others view the growth of the craft brewing industry as reflecting the maturation of the American palate. “You’re talking about an almost infinite number of variations,” Dan Schwarz, CEO, owner, of Lift Bridge Brewery in Stillwater, said of flavors achievable through shadings of ingredients, duration of brewing and other factors. The Brewers Association, representing the craft brewing industry, defines more than 100 kinds of beer.

Surly Brewing Company President Omar Ansari talks about the Brooklyn Center brewery. Surly pushed for a change in state law that would permit breweries like Surly to sell beer at the brewery. The so-called Surly bill was signed into law in 2011. (Photo by T.W. Budig) “They’re making millions and millions of barrels of beer, and it all tastes the same,” Zac Carpenter, owner and cofounder of Bad Weather Brewing Company in Minnetonka, said of big brewer brands. “Whereas with small craft brewers, you’re buying flavor.” Not that all craft brewers are dismissive of big brewers. As technicians, they admire the ability of big brewers to produce beer at different breweries with consistent tastes. Jason Schoneman, of Steel Toe Brewing in St. Louis Park, with a smile, described bigbrand beers as “ethanol delivery systems.” There is a time and place for all beers, he added. “On a really hot day when you’re out working, that might be the right time to have one of those beers,” Schoneman said, noting the lower alcohol level compared to some craft beers. But while admiring technical expertise, craft beer brewers, often former home brewers, leave a sense they’d rather be reaching for something unique. “I don’t know how many Budweisers I’ve drank over the last five years,” Schwarz said when asked. “Not many,” he said. As might be expected in a growing market, individual craft brewers have different stories and different strategies.

Surly expands Brooklyn Center’s Surly Brewing is currently the fourth largest brewer in Minnesota, according to the Minneapolis/ St. Paul Business Journal. And they may stay in fourth for awhile, Ansari said. Cold Spring Brewing Company, ranked third, brews about 75,000 barrels of beer per year.

But Surly is on the move. The company recently released the drawings of its proposed $20 million destination brewery to be built in the Prospect Park neighborhood of Minneapolis. “Hopefully, come late fall, we’ll be pushing some dirt around,” Ansari said. Once built, the destination brewery, which will a have restaurant and be a stage for events, will also allow Surly to brew more beer. “It will probably double our production off the bat. And then we can keep growing from there,” Ansari said. Surly will keep its Brooklyn Center facility. But its tap house, where patrons can drink the beer, will be in Minneapolis. Minnesota recently made taprooms legal; the so-called Surly bill was signed into law in 2011. Like other craft breweries, it’s pounding rock and roll, not oompah music, that serves as the sound track at Surly. The brewery itself – with its stainless steel tanks producing year-round beers like Furious, Bender, CynicAle and Hell, a beer the company insists Ansari’s German mother will drink – is hot and humid in the summer. And active. The company has 25 employees and a certain edge. Its name, Surly, describes a beer lover unable to find a good beer, Ansari explained, smiling.

Steel Toe

at about 35 restaurants and a dozen or so liquor stores in the metro area. “They’re all selling very well,” Schoneman said of beers like Provider Ale, Rainmaker Double Red Ale and Size 7, the brewery’s top seller. “With Steel Toe, it’s all about the quality – keep the quality of the beer really, really high,” Schoneman said. A native of Iowa, one of the things Schoneman likes about brewing is the process. Although the analytic equipment on a table in the brewery is reminiscent of a high school chemistry lab, testing by taste and aroma are still the best analysis in brewing, Schoneman said. A former toolmaker, Schoneman home brewed for a number of years before considering starting his own brewery. Thirsting for more expertise, he attended a brewing academy, then accepted brewing jobs in Montana and Oregon. “It took 10 years from the idea to actually going for it,” Schoneman said. For a time, he did everything himself. “Oh man, it was brutal,” he said, smiling, of starting the brewery. “It still is.” The name of the brewery, Steel Toe, refers to the workingman. He’s worn steel-toed boots the majority of his working life, Schoneman said. “They represent hard work and the rewards that hopefully go along with it,” he said. Steel Toe also has a taproom. “Our taproom is busy. We get a lot of people who come here and try our beer,” Schoneman said. “It’s fantastic.”

gan brewing late winter. Carpenter, of Farmington, head brewer, along with business manager Joe Giambruno, has an arrangement with Lucid Brewing and Badger Hill Brewing that has all three using the same facility in Minnetonka. “This isn’t a permanent solution for anybody here,” Carpenter said. Beyond a certain metrological accuracy for Minnesota, the brewery’s name, Bad Weather, evokes a business model. “Bad Weather Brewing is focusing on the seasonality of beer,” Carpenter said. “That’s a big focus for us.” Windvane, a red ale, is the brewery’s flagship beer. Ominous – warming from the inside out, boasts the brewery – is a winter seasonal, with other offerings rounding out the seasonal brewing cycle. The brewery likes melding different beer styles into their beers, Carpenter said. Currently, draft Bad Weather beer is available in about 50 bars and restaurants in Minneapolis and St. Paul. The company looks to begin bottling in a few months. “We’re not too far out into the outskirts yet,” Carpenter said of the suburban market. For now, Carpenter looks to Facebook, Twitter, beer festivals and word of mouth, as forms of advertising. “No. 1, you need to make good beer,” Carpenter said of achieving success. “That’s absolute No. 1.” Carpenter, a graduate of the American Brewer’s Guild, formerly worked in finance and banking.

3,400 barrels of beer last year, but is on pace this year to produce as much as 6,000 barrels. “It’s a big jump,” Schwarz said. “We invested in some new equipment this year. And that’s really moved us forward quite a bit,” he said. Lift Bridge, which is located off Highway 36 in a newer, industrial area, has a spacious taproom. “It’s really an opportunity to sit down with the customer and talk to them about your beers,” Schwarz said. “I think that’s where the largest value lies,” he said. Over its five years of business, Lift Bridge has seen its distribution increase from seven accounts to being available at more than 1,000 locations. Farm Girl, a pale golden ale, is the brewery’s flagship beer and its most popular. But its menu of beers is extensive. Indeed, one beer, an English-Style barleywine ale, The Commander, is aged in bourbon barrels. One driving factor behind the growth of craft brewing, Schwarz believes, is the community nature of local beer. “It’s a focal point, a place where people can come together,” he said. Schwarz is upbeat about the future. “I think we’re going to continue to grow for awhile. It’s hard to see an end to the growth at this point,” he said of Lift Bridge.

Market good Agnew, too, is bullish. A new generation of beer drinkers picked up their first mug of beer at a time when unique beers were available. They expect it. “Nationally, we have a great reputation,” Agnew said of craft beer quality in Minnesota. According to the Brewers Association, craft brewers sold an estimated 13.2 million barrels of beer in 2012, almost 2 million more than the year before. Nationally, the craft-brewing share of beer sales was 6.5 percent by volume, about 10 percent by dollar. Ansari, citing the market share, sees opportunity. Perhaps not limitless, but big. “When you walk into a bar, there are so many tap handles. When you walk into a liquor store, there’s only so much cooler space,” Ansari said. “(But) if you’re brewing good beer, you’re always growing,” he said. “I just don’t see people who drink craft beer going back to drinking Budweiser,” Ansari said. “Once you start drinking it, it’s hard to go back.”

Over at Steel Toe, Schoneman, of St. Louis Park, is guiding his brewery along a more gradual track. “And that’s by design. I’m in no hurry to grow,” Schoneman said. Email T.W.

Sports Historic season sends Cobras to World Series Burnsville will play for American Legion national title by Mike Shaughnessy SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Burnsville won the Central Plains Regional American Legion baseball tournament on Monday but – for now – has been denied a triumphant return home. “We’re still in Fargo,” Cobras coach Greg Nesbitt said Tuesday, referring to the North Dakota city where the regional tournament was held. “If you win the regional, they don’t let you leave.” The American Legion arranged for regional champions to fly this week from the sites of their regional tournaments to North Carolina. For Burnsville, that meant boarding a flight from Fargo at 5:45 a.m. Wednesday. The American Legion World Series begins Friday in Shelby, N.C., with Burnsville playing Great Lakes Regional champion Napoleon, Ohio, at 8:30 a.m. The national tournament runs through Tuesday, Aug. 20. All games will be available via online streaming on ESPN3. For the Cobras, it could mean almost two weeks on the road. Few if any of the players and coaches expected to be away from home that long. “We had to take one man to the clothing store (Tuesday) to get him something for the flight,” Nesbitt said. “Our parents have been great to us. They’ve been doing laundry. They even did my laundry, which is something I really appreciated.” A little laundry duty might have been a small price for watching a part of Burnsville baseball history. This is the first Cobras team to reach an American Legion regional, let alone the World Series. It’s also the first Minnesota Third District team to get there. Until this year, the Third District team that came closest was the Apple Valley 76ers, who were second in

a regional in 2007. Burnsville (35-10) clinched its place in the national tournament with a 15-5 victory over Omaha (Neb.) Westside on Monday in a game shortened to seven innings because of the 10-run rule. In their previous four games at the regional, the Cobras displayed solid pitching, timely hitting and a knack for forcing opponents into mistakes. In the championship game they sprayed the ball all over Jack Williams Stadium, finishing with 20 hits (19 of them singles) in seven innings. Tyler Hanson, the regional tournament MVP, was 5-for-5 with three runs and two RBI in the championship game. He batted .563 for the tournament and had two pitching victories. Eric Watters and Camden Traetow had three hits each in the championship game. Tyler Hill was 2-for4 with two RBI. Aaron Rozek pitched the first six innings and earned the victory. At one point, Burnsville led 15-0 in the championship game. “In some of our earlier (regional) games, it took until the second or third time through the lineup before we felt comfortable at the plate,” Nesbitt said. “(Monday), everything fell in.” Zach Smith pitched a complete game and Joe Keller’s two-run double keyed a Burnsville rally as the Cobras defeated defending regional champion Omaha Creighton Prep 7-3 on Aug. 11. Cooper Maas had a two-run double and Hanson pitched a complete game as Burnsville beat Carroll County, Iowa, 4-3 on Aug. 10. On Aug. 9, Burnsville rallied to beat Eden Prairie 5-4 in a winners’ bracket game. The Cobras, who trailed 4-1 in the eighth inning, scored three of their final four runs on wild pitches, including Smith’s game-winning run in the bottom of the ninth. Eden Prairie defeated Burnsville twice in the Minnesota state tournament. “The biggest play of

Burnsville’s Bo Hellquist swings at a pitch during the state American Legion baseball tournament. The Cobras finished second in the state tourney, first in the Great Plains Regional and will play in the American Legion World Series for the first time. (Photo by Rick Orndorf) the whole tournament for us was Cooper Maas covering home plate when Luke Lind of Eden Prairie tried to score on a wild pitch in the eighth inning,” Nesbitt said. “If he scores, it makes it that much tougher for us to come back.” Getting over the hurdle of beating Eden Prairie helped the Cobras believe they had a real chance to win the tournament, the coach said. Now the Cobras will try to take that confidence – and several loads of clean laundry – to North Carolina. Although it’s the first American Legion World Series appearance for Burnsville, Nesbitt said Cobras players told him they played against players from other World Seriesqualifying communities at younger age levels.

Minnesota has had five American Legion World Series champions since 1943, including three in the last 14 years. Eden Prairie won the national title in 2011. Not surprisingly, Eden Prairie coach Scott Hackett was one of the first people Nesbitt called after Burnsville won the regional championship. Hackett gave him a lot of sound advice about the logistics of playing in the World Series, Nesbitt said. “The first three calls I made after we won were to my parents, my girlfriend and Scott Hackett,” Nesbitt said. “And I was on the phone with Scott the longest.” Email Mike Shaughnessy at The Burnsville Cobras’ Camden Traetow (22) congratumike.shaughnessy@ecm- lates Tyler Hill after Hill scored a run in the state American Legion tournament.

Notebook: Jones schedules visits

Baylor, Kentucky, Kansas, Duke on itinerary

Blaze walks for hunger

by Mike Shaughnessy SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Apple Valley High School boys basketball star Tyus Jones made an unofficial visit to the University of Minnesota on Tuesday and set a schedule for official visits to four other colleges he is considering. On Tuesday, he announced on his Twitter account (@Tyusjones06) that he would make official visits to Baylor (Aug. 30-Sept. 1), Kentucky (Sept. 27-29), Kansas (Oct. 18-20) and Duke (Oct. 2527). Student-athletes are allowed a maximum of five official visits, meaning Jones could add one to his schedule. He also is considering Michigan State and Ohio State. Jones was not expected to include Minnesota on his list of official visits because he’s already a fairly frequent visitor to the campus. Unless he commits before taking all of

his visits, it appears unlikely he will announce a decision much before Nov. 13, the start of the early National Letter of Intent signing period for basketball.

Season openers High school soccer and volleyball teams can play their first matches Thursday, Aug. 22. Defending state boys Class AA soccer champion Eastview will be in action that day with a 7 p.m. match at Roseville. Perennial boys soccer power Apple Valley plays Owatonna at 7 p.m. at Johnny Cake Ridge Stadium. Farmington will play host to Rosemount in a 5 p.m. non-conference game between teams that will be conference rivals beginning in fall 2014, when Farmington is scheduled to join the South Suburban. Eastview’s girls soccer team, a state tournament qualifier the last two years, takes on Cretin-Derham Hall at 7 p.m. at home.

Town ball playoffs Eagan and Savage are among the 16 teams still

alive in the state Class B men’s amateur baseball tournament. Both will be in Super Section tournaments this weekend. Eagan and Savage emerged from a regional tourney that included the other two members of the Cannon Valley League – Burnsville and Lakeville. The Eagan Bandits, who have a number of former Eagan High School players, go to a Super Section tournament in Austin beginning Friday. The Bandits will play the Austin Greyhounds at 6 p.m., followed by Dundas vs. Duluth at 8:30. Two of those four teams will advance to the state tournament. Super Section tournaments are doubleelimination. The Savage Outlaws, who have a heavy concentration of Burnsville High School alumni on their roster, will play Red Wing at 8:30 p.m. Friday in a Super Section tourney in Marshall. Cold Spring and Mankato are the other two teams playing in Marshall, which will send two teams to state.

Staten Island and Detroit. After returning to Kansas City to work as a public health nurse, Virginia came to the University of Minnesota for further studies. She married James Clardy of Minneapolis, who made a career as director of administrative services for the Minneapolis post office. As the couple had children, they sought to leave Minneapolis for better schools, Clardy Patterson said. They’d narrowed their choice to Edina or Burnsville. Burnsville was the sentimental favorite because of her father’s boyhood memories of hunting deer in the area, she said. The Clardys bought their brand-new home from the chief carpenter of the neighborhood developer, who suddenly decided to sell, Clardy Patterson said. The developer himself didn’t seem likely to sell to a black couple. He was “actually the ringleader for trying to keep us out of the neighborhood,” Clardy Patterson said, adding that their lender threw up another barrier by requiring an outlandish 45 percent down payment. A group of neighbors, led by the developer, had the house condemned for sitting below the surface of the road, Clardy Patterson said. Her parents got the condemnation order lifted. Then the developer had a bulldozer come by every day to block the driveway with dirt and debris. The Clardys obtained a ceaseand-desist order. “So then our neighbors threatened to burn down our house,” said Clardy Patterson, 56. “There were verbal threats. And then one night they came over with guns.” James, an Army veteran, had his own gun — a Luger pistol, a World War II keepsake, which he fired into the air. “He said, ‘I fought to

They do have authority over customer service and can pursue more than the minimum levels prescribed in federal law, she said. More than half of the subscribers in the online survey and focus groups were “very” or “somewhat” satisfied with Comcast’s overall performance, Buske reported. But 86 percent of openended comments about Comcast’s service were negative. Dissatisfaction with the company is “a little higher ... than I’ve seen in some places,” said Buske, who consults for multiple cities. One of her key findings was that nearly half of subscribers get most of their programming information from Comcast’s on-screen guide. But Burnsville’s public, educational and government access channels aren’t included in the onscreen guide, Buske said. They should be added, she said. She also called for local access channels to have high-definition, closedcaptioning and video-ondemand capability. Comcast also needs to upgrade Burnsville Community Television equipment in the Burnsville City Hall council chambers and in the production truck Burnsville shares with Eagan, Buske said. Most of BCTV’s equipment was purchased in 2009 and is in good to excellent shape, she reported.

Racial incidents, verbal and physical, followed the children to school. They attended Lakeville schools — Orchard Lake Elementary and the then-combined junior and senior high. “My parents always had a rule that if one of us gets attacked, the rest of us had better not come home unless we stood up for the other one,” Clardy Patterson said. Virginia challenged the school district over “The Story of Little Black Sambo,” an 1899 children’s book later criticized for racial slurs and symbols. Her request that the book be removed from school bookshelves was denied. “Her view wasn’t that you necessarily won every case, but that you stood up,” Clardy Patterson said. The Clardys also encountered people of good will in the community and saw attitudes change, she

Each kid had to do a weekly report on a current event.” Clardy Patterson got her fill of “Texaco presents Metropolitan Opera” broadcasts on public radio. “We had to listen to that every Saturday, and then she gave us a test afterwards,” she said. “I swore when I grew up and could afford a car, I would never buy Texaco gas.” Virginia, who stayed

Wendell Anderson’s advisor on drug and alcohol abuse. Virginia finished her career as the nursing consultant to Minnesota’s state hospitals. “My mother was very politically active,” a trait she encouraged in her children, Clardy Patterson said. “She held a number of positions in the DFL Party. She worked on a number of races. In fact, Hubert Humphrey (the late senator and vice president) dubbed her the ‘Queen Bee of Burnsville’ because he said she could organize anything.” Virginia, whose husband died in 1999, loved gardening, canning and healthy eating.

AMES, from 1A for $1.5 million. The Ames deal is yet another step toward better financial health for the center, which was predicted to post annual operating losses but has cut them in recent years. Operating losses totaled $285,747 in 2012, compared with $304,853 in 2011, according to the city. And the city negotiated revenue-enhancement incentives in its new contract with VenuWorks, the centerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s management company. Ames officials have â&#x20AC;&#x153;seen that the Performing Arts Center has done well,â&#x20AC;? Kautz said.

The companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vast portfolio of projects ranges from the airport in Denver, Colo., to the Crosstown/Interstate 35W interchange and the Highway 13/County Road 5 interchange in Burnsville. Naming rights aside, the company has already â&#x20AC;&#x153;made very significant contributions to the construction of the Burnsville Performing Arts Center,â&#x20AC;? according to a December 2012 council proclamation designating an Ames Construction Week in Burnsville to honor the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 50th anniversary. In addition to donating to the arts center, Ames donated the bronze sculpture on the north side of Burnsville Parkway that features a workman and Jewell underwent a lengthy vetting process to participate in the program, which included an online application, teacher recommendation and interview. She was among 40 students who were selected in 2012 to participate in a 10-day cultural exchange program at Princeton University, where she took advanced classes on Japanese language and culture. Each U.S. student was paired with a Japanese roommate who was preparing to serve as a high school diplomat in the United States. Half of the U.S. students, including Jewell, received a full scholarship, which paid for the trip to Japan. Jewell said her experience in Japan taught her how similar every culture is to one another and the importance of connecting to those across the globe. She plans to study engineering at the University of Wisconsin-Madison this fall, and said she hopes to study abroad in Europe.

Unlike in American culture, though, Jewell said she wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t quite prepared for the amount of walking everyone does in Japan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I remember theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d say, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Oh, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s under 10 miles, we can walk,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Not many people here would do that.â&#x20AC;? She said she also admires that the Japanese rely more on public transportation than on cars. Jewell said she was most inspired by a survivor of the Hiroshima bombing in 1945, whom she met in Tokyo. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You learn about it from a textbook,â&#x20AC;?

Narrowing down Robert Street options Of the seven initial alternatives developed to improve transit between downtown St. Paul and Dakota County communities, three have been approved to move forward for further study. At its meeting July 25, the Robert Street Transitway Alternatives Analysis Steering Committee â&#x20AC;&#x201C; comprised of county and city elected officials and representatives from the Metropolitan Council and MnDOT â&#x20AC;&#x201C; selected the following alternatives: â&#x20AC;˘ A Robert Street alignment between downtown St. Paul and Mendota Road in West St. Paul that will evaluate arterial bus

rapid transit â&#x20AC;˘ A Robert Street alignment between downtown St. Paul and Mendota Road in West St. Paul that will evaluate streetcar â&#x20AC;˘ A Highway 52 alignment from downtown St. Paul to Inver Grove Heights using highway bus rapid transit A detailed study of the alternatives will take place through the fall and will include a review of potential service plans, ridership, cost estimates, traffic analyses, land use and environmental concerns. Final results on the three alternatives will be available and presented at public meetings in early 2014.

Scriven said he was in the chase vehicle, which follows the riders and Dustin contains a Rahier first aid kit and cellphone for emergencies; the group also included nurses and emergency medical technicians. He said an emergency medical technician witnessed the crash and was at Rahierâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s side within a minute of the accident. Rahier was awake but then lost consciousness at the scene, Scriven said. Historical Society members are devastated by the loss, and Scriven said they will be meeting to determine whether to continue holding the fundraiser or to make changes to it. Two minor accidents have happened to riders participating in the event in the past: one rider lost the sole of his shoe when his motorcycle slipped on loose gravel and another rider broke an ankle. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m still trying to comprehend this,â&#x20AC;? Scriven said, fighting tears. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is something thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to live with me for the rest of my life. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the saddest thing Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever been around.â&#x20AC;? A celebration of Rahierâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life was held Wednesday, Aug. 14, at White Funeral Home in Lakeville.

A Lakeville man died just days before his birthday, after an Aug. 10 motorcycle accident on Highway 50 and Holt Avenue. Dustin Rahier, 38, was in eastbound traffic popping wheelies on a Kawasaki motorcycle when vehicles in front of him slowed down, causing him to brake hard and roll, according to the Minnesota State Patrol. The State Patrol reported Rahier suffered a serious injury in the crash, and a White Funeral Home obituary reported he died that day. Rahier was taking part in the Northfield Historical Societyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sixth annual Outlaw Run fundraiser. The event starts with a reenactment of the attempted bank robbery in Northfield committed by gangs led by Jesse and Frank James and the Younger brothers on Sept. 7, 1876. The robbery ended with two gang members and two townspeople dead; the Younger brothers were eventually captured, but the James brothers escaped. Outlaw Run motorcyclists explore southern Minnesota as the gangs did before the attempted robbery. Northfield Historical Society Executive Director Hayes Scriven said the accident happened just as the group of about 230 motorcyclists were leaving a New Trier restaurant, Laura Adelmann is at laura. the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first stop on adelmann@ecm-inc.com.

In addition to the three alternatives, a potential service extension from the Robert Street alignment and Highway 52 alignment into central Dakota County will be studied to assess possible service and capital improvements for limited stop service. The Robert Street Transitway Alternatives Analysis is a joint local and federal planning effort conducted by the Dakota County Regional Railroad Authority and the Ramsey County Regional Railroad Authority.

Lakeville veteran honored for service at home Patrick Sweany selected for Veteransâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Voices Award by Laura Adelmann SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

A Lakeville man is one of 25 veterans statewide selected for Minnesotaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inaugural Veteransâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Voices Award, which recognizes veterans who have made exceptional contributions in the community. Former U.S. Army Sgt. Patrick Sweany was selected for the award by the Minnesota Humanities Center for his work as an Allina paramedic in the south metro. Veteransâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Voices spokeswoman Nancy Davis-Ortiz said the organizationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s goal for the award recipients, all veterans of recent wars, is to go on to interviews and speaking events and to serve as mentors to others. Sweany was nominated for the award by his former paramedic partner, retired Col. John Gritz of Eagan, who described him as a â&#x20AC;&#x153;humble, quiet professional who has served his nation and community well.â&#x20AC;? Sweany volunteered for the Army Reserves in 1998 to train as a mental health specialist and graduated from Inver Hills Community College in emergency medicine before earning his national certification as a paramedic and starting with Allina in 2002. He immediately volunteered for active duty at the start of the Iraq War in 2003. He served as a combat stress counselor and as an armed medic voluntarily accompanied convoys that sometimes came under enemy fire. Sweany also flew out to help hard-hit units serving in Iraq, counseling soldiers who had been under ambush, who had lost soldiers and team members and who were deploying back to combat. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would talk with them and help them process the event so they could get out on the line quicker and complete the mission,â&#x20AC;? Sweany said. His ability to help people in high-stress situations has benefited the community since Sweany was honorably discharged in 2004. He is one of only three on-call tactical EMS paramedics selected to join the Bloomington and airport police SWAT teams. He receives specialized national training as a tactical medical operator to help during the most serious high-risk situations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He is called on week-

Patrick Sweany ly for crisis emergencies, high-risk arrests and hostage situations to concurrently treat perpetrators, victims and team members in a consistently superb manner,â&#x20AC;? Gritz wrote. In an interview, Gritz said Sweany has â&#x20AC;&#x153;tremendous capabilityâ&#x20AC;? to deescalate people in stressful situations like serious car accidents, hostage situations, high-risk warrant searches or medical crises. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great clinician,â&#x20AC;? Gritz said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He is the complete medic.â&#x20AC;? Sweany has volunteered to train other paramedics and is also part of the Allina EMS Bike Team that provides rapid response at special events and promotes bike safety and fitness. Gritz described Sweany as â&#x20AC;&#x153;an up-front citizensoldier-police professional with an enduring, respected ethic of lifesaving to young and old of all colors and creeds,â&#x20AC;? and said he â&#x20AC;&#x153;is deeply appreciated for his courage, work ethic, high medical standards and community service.â&#x20AC;? Sweany said he was â&#x20AC;&#x153;surprised and honoredâ&#x20AC;? when he learned he had been selected as one of the awardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inaugural recipients. He said he loves working as a tactical paramedic because he enjoys helping people, and the job stays exciting because every call has an unknown element to it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I enjoy it so much,â&#x20AC;? Sweany said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t call myself an adrenaline junkie, but thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always loved about going into the unknown.â&#x20AC;? Sweany and the other winners will be honored with at a ceremony on Wednesday, Sept. 11, at the Minnesota Humanities Center, 987 Ivy Ave. E., St. Paul.

Third suspect eludes police after massive search by Laura Adelmann SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Lakeville police officers arrested two burglary suspects Friday, Aug. 9, near downtown Lakeville, but a third potential suspect remains at large after an extensive search that included a State Patrol helicopter and K-9 units. Marquis Marvin Mitchell and Lamario Darell Isiakpere, both 19 and residents of Burnsville, are in jail and charged with firstdegree burglary in the incident, which started after a Lakeville police officer noticed a residenceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s garage and service door open at around 4 a.m. The officer woke up the owners of the home on 211th Street, who quickly realized they had been robbed. Police Chief Tom Vonhof said a tracking application on the homeownersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; missing iPad led police to a vehicle about three blocks away on Hytrail Circle. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As soon as the police showed up and activated their lights, two people

bailed from the car,â&#x20AC;? Vonhof said. Police say they found Mitchell and Isiakpere after about a half-hour search, and also discovered in the vehicle more stolen property from another Lakeville home. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They went to that house and awoke them,â&#x20AC;? Vonhof said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even know they had been burglarized.â&#x20AC;? About an hour after the arrests, another Lakeville resident reported a suspicious person hiding in some bushes in the same area. Police set up a six-block perimeter, closing roads and asking residents to stay inside. All Lakeville officers responded, bringing in K-9 units and reinforcements from Farmington, Bloomington and the State Patrol, which employed its helicopter to assist searchers in the area of 210th Street and Dodd Boulevard. Vonhof said officers several times spotted the suspect â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a 6-foot black male, 150 pounds, wearing dark clothing and a

light-colored baseball cap â&#x20AC;&#x201D; from several residential yards away. But the suspect was not caught and eventually darted into a wooded area along the railroad tracks by 210th Street. The search ended at around 12:30 p.m. Friday. Lakeville detectives are working to determine the identity of the third person. Anyone with additional information is asked to contact the Lakeville police at 952-985-2800. Vonhof credited officers for their work at discovering the burglaries before they were reported, getting the suspects into custody and recovering all items that were missing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This was a great piece of police work by our officers,â&#x20AC;? Vonhof said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is one of those things that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the suspicion of officers that led to arrests and the recovery of missing items before they were even reported.â&#x20AC;?

It’s Beethoven’s opera of revolution and liberation, retold with secret agents, covert operations and undercover antics – plus some reggae music thrown in for good measure. Feel free to bring a picnic dinner. Twin Cities-based theater group Mixed Precipitation is bringing back its hugely popular Picnic Operetta tour for a fifth season, and will be staging “Agent Fidelio” at community gardens and other public venues this month and next. A south-of-the-river performance of “Agent Fidelio” is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 18, at Caponi Art Park in Eagan. Beethoven’s opera “Fidelio,” first staged in 1805, tells the story of a woman who disguises herself as a prison guard to rescue her husband from death in a political prison. Mixed Precipitation’s comic take on the opera features Beethoven’s soaring arias and choruses, mixed with the reggae of Jimmy Cliff and other audio idiosyncrasies. The event is the final show in Caponi’s Summer Performance Series,

which kicked off June 23 with a concert by the Minnesota Sinfonia and has offered theater, music and dance on Sunday evenings throughout the summer. Admission to “Agent Fidelio” is free with a $5 suggested donation. Guests are encouraged to

bring lawn chairs or a blanket to spread on the grassy slopes of Caponi’s Theater in the Woods outdoor amphitheater. More about the performance is at www.caponiartpark.org. —Andrew Miller
