District, seven Lakeville schools School board backs parents, miss state ‘No Child’ targets district gives enrollment update Proficiency levels increase or remain steady, but district having difficulty keeping up with accelerating goals by Derrick Williams THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

Lakeville’s students and their teachers are improving. In many cases, significantly. Almost across the board, Lakeville’s students increased their proficiency in reading, math and science on the Minnesota Comprehensive Assessment-II, a state mandated test required of Minneso-

keeping up with ever accelerating targets set forth in the federal No Child Left Behind Act. As a result, the Lakeville Area Public School District, as well as seven of its schools, failed to make Adequate Yearly Progress. “We recognize we have some growth to make,� said Jason Molesky, Lakeville’s assessment and accountability coordinator. “But I See Lakeville, 5A

The Farmington School Board heard an enrollment update at the Monday, Aug. 9, board meeting held at Boeckman Middle School. Linda Goers, the district’s human resources director, reported that initial enrollment numbers at the elementary level were down by 82 students, and total student body enrollment was at 3,219, down from an earlier projection of 3,301.

and elementary principals plan to talk again Aug. 16 to look the numbers at each grade level, said Christine Weymouth, assistant superintendent who

was sitting in for Superintendent Brad Meeks at the meeting. “I want to say to parents that we are going to do our very best in balancing and placing FTEs where they need the attention,� Weymouth said. The district is still receiving in-district elementary transfers after parents finalize daycare plans for children, said Goers. “I am confident and the principals are confident and they watch out for you and your concerns See Farmington, 5A

In a mirror of the DFL gubernatorial race, primary voters on Aug. 10 repudiated a party endorsee, this time in the south metro. Former state representative Shelley Madore received 19,973 votes over Dan Powers’ 16,522, a 10 percent margin. “I am very pleased and grateful,� Madore said in a phone interview Wednesday morning. “Voters saw a real challenger for (U.S. Rep.) John Kline.� Shelley The DFL Party establishment ofMadore ficially endorsed Powers at its convention in Duluth in April. He was unreachable by the time this story went to press. “I think Dan ran a competitive race,� Madore said. “Now it is time for us to focus on John Kline.� Madore will challenge Kline this November for his seat in the Second Congressional District, which encompasses most of the south metro.

Where’s the beef? Madore said she will continue her 35 Cent Tour, which is designed to showcase the effects on the district of Kline’s “no pork stance.� For every federal tax dollar, she said, Dakota County only sees 35 cents on the dollar compared to an average of 77 cents in other Minnesota Congressional districts. She said that might be perceived as protecting our tax dollars from being wasted. “In reality,� she said during the primary campaign, “Mr. Kline has refused to request federal tax dollars for important community projects, even when asked by our trusted county, city and school leaders.� Troy Young, communications director for John Kline, issued a statement on behalf of the congressman. “Kline remains committed to listening to his constituents and restoring the values of limited government, personal responsibility and economic freedom that open the door to opportunity and prosperity,� Young said.

More workforce, affordable housing comes to Lakeville Forty countyLAKEVILLE subsidized rental units The CDA specializes in finished near Airlake providing housing services for low- and moderate-inIndustrial Park by Derrick Williams THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

Lakeville generally isn’t synonymous with workforce housing. The median home value in Lakeville is estimated by the city at $233,700. But Lakeville is also home to the metro’s largest industrial complex south of the river, and Airlake Industrial Park has more than 4,000 blue collar workers, many of whom call Lakeville home. That’s why the Dakota County Community Development Agency has put a large focus on Lakeville.

come households, according to Sara Swenson, assistant director of administration for the CDA. And Swenson said that this month the CDA is putting the finishing touches on 40 rental townhouse units in a development called Meadowlark. Swenson said the families moving into the rental units, located along 210th Street, right across the road from Airlake, will pay less because their rent is partially subsidized through tax credits, grants and other money the CDA receives. Swenson said a twobedroom unit in Meadow-

lark goes for $625 a month. Similar sized two-bedroom apartments go for $968 around the area, Swenson said. “It’s quite a difference in price and allows families affordable rent so they can save for other things, like reliable transportation or a down payment on their own house,� Swenson said. But families who apply for CDA housing can have a combined income of $45,360 or less to qualify, Swenson said. “We’ve seen people come in who have lost jobs and unfortunately have foreclosed on their homes,� Swenson said. “They come to us for help. And we’re seeing more people come through our doors than ever before.� Lakeville is now home

Meadowlark, a 40-unit affordable housing development along 210th Street in Lakeville, is almost finished. The Dakota County Community Development Agency project will offer one-, two- and three-bedroom rental townhouses to families in need of affordable housing. The development is the fourth such CDA neighborhood in Lakeville. to four CDA developments that offer affordable rental housing – the most in the county, Swenson said.

along with Meadowlark, give the CDA 139 rental units in Lakeville. There are only 552 CDArun units across the county, Swenson said.

“It’s important to have that kind of housing available in Lakeville,� she said. “It’s growing and will be home to a lot of people in the coming years.� Meadowlark has been years in the making, according to Lakeville’s economic development director, David Olson. The site was a former dump, and before the CDA could build, the site needed to be cleaned up, he said. “It’s a great project,� Olson said. “For one, it cleaned up and redeveloped an old dump site, which wasn’t likely to be done privately. And two, it’s the type of housing that workers from the industrial park can benefit from.� Olson said the purchase See Housing, 17A

and they appreciate and care about you,â&#x20AC;? said Weymouth, addressing parents who sat in the audience. A few elementary grade levels are being closely monitored at North Trail, Farmington Elementary and Riverview, Weymouth said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;From my perspective, we are watching all these classes with great concern,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Weymouth said. Each year at the start of school there are â&#x20AC;&#x153;no shows,â&#x20AC;? or students that the district was planning to see return to a certain grade that do not, Goers explained. The natural tendency is for parents to overlook the need to let a school district know when they move out of the district or a neighborhood, Goers said.

Board feedback When a few Farmington parents asked for specific numbers for each grade level at the five elementary

buildings, they were not given the information. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I understand that things change, but very frankly, it is starting to look like we are starting to hide something,â&#x20AC;? said John Kampf, Farmington school board member. Most school board members were in agreement that the elementary grade numbers at each building should be released, except for board chair Bob Heman, who was reluctant. After the meeting, the specific grade level breakdown and number of students in each class from kindergarten through fifth grade in each of the five elementary buildings was given or e-mailed to parents. Roz Pautzke, director of administrative services, said enrollment projections are based on July 30 enrollment information. The enrollment data is merely a snapshot and should not be construed as actual enrollment for the school year. Teacher classroom as-

signment letters were slated to be mailed out to parents on Friday, Aug. 13, but may be delayed until later in the day Aug. 16.

   

        

           

   

    

â&#x20AC;˘ Lightning struck the district office during the Tuesday, Aug. 10, School Board meeting, knocking out the live broadcast. The meeting was taped and it can be viewed in its entirety on Channel 22 during the normal air times for the meeting. â&#x20AC;˘ Tony Massaros, the districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s director of administrative services, said enrollment for the 20102011 school year are only nine students off projections. There are currently 11,025 students enrolled district wide, compared with the 11,034 projection made last year. â&#x20AC;˘ With building maintenance bids coming in more than $2.25 million under projections, the School Board authorized eight new projects, totalling $1.8 million to be completed. Many of the projects were planned for upcoming years and include boiler replacement at JFK Elementary School and chiller repair at Lakeville North High School.

also think this speaks very well to the work our teachers and our learners are doing in the classroom.â&#x20AC;? AYP is a measuring stick used to determine proficiency standards that public schools and districts must meet under requirements of the 2003 federal No Child Left Behind Act. Missing AYP this year, was the Lakeville Area School District as a whole, as well as Crystal Lake Elementary, Christina Huddleston Elementary, Oak Hills Elementary, Orchard Lake Elementary, Century Middle, and Kenwood Trial Middle schools, and the Area Learning Center missed one or more AYP targets. Whether or not a school makes AYP is based almost entirely on student scores on the MCA-II, which were given to students in grades three-eight, 10 and 11 in the 2009-10 school year. Each grade that takes the test is then broken into nine subgroups â&#x20AC;&#x201D; all students, American Indian/ Alaskan Native, Asian/ Pacific Islander, Hispanic, black, white, limited English proficiency, special education and free and reduced priced lunch. Each

subgroup is then measured in four areas â&#x20AC;&#x201D; participation in taking the test; classroom attendance; MCA-II scores; and graduation rate. Each building is then analyzed, and if any of the subgroups misses a target, that school misses AYP. Statewide, only about half of Minnesota schools, some 1,066, made AYP this year while 1,048 didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It keeps getting harder,â&#x20AC;? Molesky said of AYP targets. The goal of the federal law is to have 100 percent of all schools achieving AYP by 2014. A school not making AYP can trigger a whole list of penalties, from forcing schools to offer private tutoring, replacing the staff and even sending kids elsewhere. This is the second year the district as a whole missed AYP, and as a result, the district will set aside more money for professional development, supplemental educational services. Also missing for the second year is Crystal Lake Elementary School, meaning parents of students will get a letter offering their students a chance to leave the school. The building will also

Opinion Thisweek Columnist It takes a few good leaders to raise a village by Larry Werner THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

Fifteen years ago this month, I married into a family that remembers Lakeville as the small town that served the surrounding townships of farm families. The family I married into was the LeRoy Zweber family, which operated a dairy farm on land that is now Heritage Links Golf Club in Credit River Township. By the time I started courting LeRoy’s daughter, Ann, dementia had claimed LeRoy’s personality, and he died in an Apple Valley nursing home less than a year after Ann and I were married – a year before his farm opened to golfers who now chase balls where cows used to feed on alfalfa. After moving from north of the river so Ann and I could be closer to her widowed mother and the golf course, I learned that Lakeville wasn’t the sprawling, suburban place it had always been in

my mind. It was, indeed, a fast-growing suburb, but one that grew from a village built by civic leaders who are now passing from the scene. Last month, we told you about the death of Don McGuire, the longtime superintendent of schools in Lakeville. It was Don who gave my late fatherin-law a job managing buildings and grounds for the school district when LeRoy decided there was a better way to make a living than milking cows. In April, Lakeville editor Derrick Williams wrote about the death of Jerry Enggren, who had operated the local grocery store and owned much of the downtown with his brother, John, and other family members. It was Jerry Enggren who recruited Ann and her sisters to work the checkout counter at Enggren’s Market when they were going to Lakeville schools. Last week, the life of “the other Jerry” – Jerry Erickson – was cel-

ebrated by the community after he gave in to several years of declining health on Friday, July 30. Jerry Erickson, like Jerry Enggren and Don McGuire, worked to make Lakeville the special place it is. Erickson, along with Enggren and many others, created the annual summer festival known as Pan-O-Prog. As it happens, my wife was a school representative with Erickson on the first Pan-O-Prog committee in 1966. Jerry moved to Lakeville in 1963 to open Erickson Drug, the downtown pharmacy he ran with his wife, Martha, for many years before selling it so he could spend more time fishing and working with his son, Scott, at the Ben Franklin store, which Jerry also started. He was a charter member of the Lakeville Area Chamber of Commerce and a founder of the local youth baseball program. Erickson, Enggren and McGuire were not only leaders in the business and civic communities but also

patriarchs of local families whose names are synonymous with the city’s history. Community life doesn’t just happen. It is nurtured by people like Enggren, McGuire and Erickson. It is built by families that include these three families and others with names like Kohlnhofer, Friedges, Speiker and, yes, Zweber. Mary Ajax, the CEO of the magnificent social-service agency now known as 360 Communities, surprised me when she made the comment that she is the fourth generation in her family to live in Burnsville. This summer, Eagan is celebrating its 150th anniversary as a community. From downtown Minneapolis, where I worked for many years, and from Edina, where I lived for many years, it was easy to look at so-called “outer-ring suburbs” as bedroom communities without history, charm or personality. All it took was a few months

living south of the river for me to discover that these places are great places to live, work and play because of people named Enggren, Erickson and McGuire. In last week’s Thisweek newspaper, Eagan editor Erin Johnson wrote a touching tribute to Terry Davis, a longtime city volunteer and community activist who died of pancreatic cancer just a week after the illness was diagnosed. His work with the city’s parks and on environmental issues helped make Eagan the place it is. Dakota County is rich with people who make the south metro a better place. It’s an honor for me to be managing the newspapers that have told you the stories of their accomplishments and, sadly, their passing. Larry Werner is editor and general manager of Thisweek Newspapers and the Dakota County Tribune. He is at larry.werner@ecm-inc.com.

Letters Compromise, cooperation made this country great

works, they need to moderate, compromise and cooperate. That is what worked in the past and made this country great.

To the editor: Jerry Ewing’s letter criticizes Larry Werner’s assertion in his July 2 column (“A moderate Republican reminds us of better days”). Ewing advocates “no compromises.” This is one year after the murder of Dr. Tiller in his church by another “no compromise, I am right” zealot named Scott Roeder. The “no compromise, no new taxes” Gov. Pawlenty has been gumming up our Minnesota government for years. These attitudes are identical to the ones the Taliban practices, although our country is trying, by war, to reform them. Before we incur trillions in national debt to reform others, shouldn’t we first work hard to clear our own country of all the misrepresentation and narrow-minded intolerance? President Reagan invented the evasive guise that “government is the problem” and introduced “trickle-down Reaganomics” with small government and big tax cuts. If any of this would have worked it would have been adapted long before Reagan and be part of our lives today. However, what really happened was the biggest government expansion in history, a 40 percent increase of military spending, an increase of the national debt from 700 billion to 3 trillion, the 1987 stock market crash and the saving and loan crisis, just to name a few — together with the biggest tax increases to pay for Reagan’s yarn. If once was not enough, the same ideas under Bush produced an even bigger disaster. The Republicans still have not come up with any better solutions; instead they are poisoning minds and are pitching the same old guise a third time. Until Republicans have a new solution that positively

Stretching the truth To the editor: Wow. First we hear from Republican Tom Emmer, wannabe governor, that waiters and waitresses make $100,000 a year and, therefore, don’t need minimum wage protection. Then, after his source, the one restaurant owner he interviewed, says he got his facts wrong, Emmer admits the misstatement and suggests we instead “exempt” the first $20,000 of their wages. Flip and flop. Closer to home we have Diane Anderson, Republican candidate for House 38A, claiming that she has more legislative experience than our current state representative, DFLer Sandy Masin. Anderson claims her “legislative” experience as a community volunteer (actually, she’s a registered lobbyist, registration #3783) is greater than Masin’s as a legislator. Masin is a representative who has actually drafted, introduced and secured passage of important jobs, budget and government reform legislation, and has helped pass dozens of other bills, including the long needed transportation funding law (which Anderson has said she would have opposed) and the I-35W bridge collapse victims relief fund. In fact, Masin has authored or co-sponsored 120 pieces of legislation in the last four years. It is hard to make sense of the candidate’s claim. But I guess when you have no real legislative experience and your credentials are thinner than August ice on Blackhawk Lake, there isn’t much else to do than make things up. Anderson, like Emmer, must think she can say anything and most voters won’t know the difference. If you prefer honest and

thoughtful representation, it’s Masin all the way. And that’s no lie. STAN HORNBECK JR. Eagan

Quist the right person to fill Pariseau’s shoes To the editor: Steve Quist of Farmington is running for the state Senate in District 36, which includes Farmington. He is the DFLendorsed candidate, but I think he will appeal to Independents and Republicans as well. Sen. Pat Pariseau, our District 36 state senator, has retired, meaning we should all look carefully at the two candidates running for her seat. Quist is not your typical candidate. First of all, he’s an accountant for a large nonprofit organization. As such, he’s a believer in fiscal responsibility, accountability and transparency. Second, the local DFL asked him to run. He didn’t enter the race to gain personal power. He’s a family man who wants to see Minnesota back on solid financial ground as his three boys grow up. He’s a proponent of strong public education and against taxpayer-funded vouchers for private schools. He’s an outdoors lover who wants to maintain clean air and water to make sure we don’t lose habitat for fishermen and hunters. He’s an ardent supporter of our veterans and the benefits they receive, and he encourages everyone to seek out a World War II veteran and hear some personal history while they are still among us. He’s a genuine guy who cares about others. Quist is an open-minded, no-nonsense leader who keeps his blinders off and really listens to both sides of an argument. We would be lucky to have him represent Senate District 36. ERIK STARKMAN Farmington

Guest column

We need to be watching out for each other by Mary Ajax 360 COMMUNITIES

I grew up in Burnsville in the 1950s, while it was still a rural community. Back then kids played outside all day and evening organizing their own games without parents or coaches. There was an informal neighborhood watch—moms and dads nearby keeping an eye on them. My mom and her sister lived along Highway 13 and regularly warned each other when they saw strangers along the road. Though we should always be alert for danger from strangers, we are at far greater risk of being harmed from someone we know, neighbors, friends, even family members. I know this firsthand.  For many years, in a house, in our neighborhood, one family after another was involved in crime. The police were called many times for domestic violence, drugs, child abuse and neglect.   My son, who was in grade school, wouldn’t cross the street to walk to school because he was afraid to get close to that house. If he was afraid, think about the innocent children in that house and the fear in which they lived.  How could they go to school each day ready to learn?  What were they learning about family love and relationships?  In my own circle of acquaintances, five people have died as the result of domestic violence. These were people I had met through my children’s day care and sports teams. All five met death at the hands of an intimate partner: a current or former spouse or a person they had been dat-

ing. And this sad tally does not include the people I have known in my 35-year of my career working on domestic violence. The National Network to End Domestic Violence (NNEDV) survey reported that, on one day – September 15, 2009 – “local domestic violence programs across the United States provided life-saving services to 65,321 adults and children.” On that same day NNEDV’s survey also recorded that 2 women miscarried as a result of domestic violence, 7 babies were born to mothers living in shelters, 4 women were murdered by their intimate partners and 7 children were killed by their fathers in domestic violence homicides.” Domestic violence touches all of us regardless of race, age, religion and income. I know many adults who are deeply concerned for their grandchildren, daughters, sisters, nieces and nephews. At the root of violence in our community is violence in our homes. If we want violence to stop in our communities, we have got to stop violence in our homes and neighborhoods. The cost to each of us and society is too great to ignore it. In their Cost of Violence in the U.S., 2007, report, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention cited 16,800 homicides and $2.2 million (medically treated) injuries due to intimate partner violence annually, which costs $37 billion. These personal and fi-

nancial costs, to our communities are too great. The first steps in reducing them are the conversations we should be having with our children and the behavior we need to be modeling for them. We know that crime isn’t just about strangers. We cannot ignore the astounding numbers of crimes committed by people the victim knows. Many neighborhoods recently celebrated neighborhood watch groups; Night to Unite or National Night Out events. Building neighborhood relationships is a vital first step in preventing domestic violence, and preventing such problems is a key part of developing a healthy neighborhood. What are you and yours doing to nurture neighborhood relationships and build community safety? 360 Communities believes that every individual can share in leadership, and every community can achieve a healthy future. Together with engaged citizens and community leaders, we identify opportunities to build stronger, safer, self-sustaining communities. Mary Ajax is the President and CEO of 360 Communities, formerly known as Community Action Council. Mary serves on the Fairview Minnesota Valley Care System Board of Trustees, is a past president of the Burnsville Rotary Club, and a past chair of the United Way Council of Agency Executives.

Censured judge sails through primary vote

                       

Clark to challenge Blakely for seat by Laura Adelmann THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

ed for using his position to refer clients to his personal divorce attorney to get a $64,000 discount on his legal bill. Clark said he never intended to run for a judicial seat, but was compelled to run in an effort to restore integrity and respect to the position. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As a judge, I promise to not let my personal interests interfere with my decisions,â&#x20AC;? Clark states in his campaign materials.

Blakely has emphasized his service as a naval officer and told the Red Wing Republican Eagle that his suspension from the bench was due to â&#x20AC;&#x153;unintended misconduct.â&#x20AC;? According to the newspaper, he urged voters to consider the judgement of the Justices who ordered his reinstatement.

  

A Dakota County Jail inmate doubled the number of felony charges against him when he allegedly snapped off a sprinkler head in his cell Aug. 4. The action triggered a fire alarm and response from the Hastings Fire Department, said Dakota County Sheriff Dave Bellows. Abdiaziz Osman, 27, of Edina was charged with

felony property damage for the incident, which flooded the cell and hallway, causing about $1,500 in damages and response time. According to the complaint, Osman was alone in his cell when the alarm was triggered, and firefighters determined the sprinkler head had been snapped off. Initially Osman told officers he had been hearing voices in his head, but upon further questioning, he re-

fused to speak about the incident without a lawyer present. Osman had been arrested July 29 for allegedly distracting clerks at the Holiday Gas Station in Eagan while some of the four others heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d entered the store with allegedly grabbed a box containing cartons of cigarettes, worth over $1,000. Bellows said similar incidents have happened before in the jail.

Dakota County takes ownership of dam Costly upgrades needed, but future profit expected by Laura Adelmann THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

prove more profitable than the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s investments, which have recently taken a beating in this economic climate. The dam and power plant are located in the Cannon River in Cannon Falls near Randolph Township. Dakota County officials are concerned about keeping the dam maintained to protect downstream developments. Fiscal implications and estimates will be further discussed as county commissioners continue discussions regarding the 2011 budget.

THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

In the only contested Dakota County commissioner race to go to a primary, District 4 incumbent Nancy Schouweiler earned 53 percent of the 4,236 votes cast. In Novemberâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s general election, the 11-year incumbent will face challenger Bill Klein, who received 1,424 votes and earned a 34 percent tally in the primary. Candidate Linda Apfel was eliminated from the race with 567 votes cast. There are clear differences between the two remaining candidates. Klein, 62, has been an Inver Grove Heights City Council member for 18 years. He is opposed to a plan to bring light rail to the Robert Street corridor, calling LRT not cost-effective, and promoting the need for roads as a priority. In addition, Klein has criticized commissioners making trips to Washing-

ton, D.C., or going on conferences, and emphasizes the need for fiscal responsibility in these tough economic times. Schouweiler, 53, who

Dakota County will fully own a dam and hydroelectric plant that was for decades jointly owned with Goodhue County. On Tuesday, Dakota County commissioners authorized the $1 purchase of Goodhue Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interest in the Lake Byllesby Dam and power plant, but predicted costly upgrades in the near future. According to the county, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission is requiring upgrades estimated to cost between $2.4 million and $4.8 million. Under the agreement, Dakota County is respon-

sible for all long-term maintenance of the dam and plant, but is also to receive all future revenue from selling power produced at the plant. While the exact figures were not public because a lawsuit is under way with dam operator North American Hydro Holdings Inc. regarding an unpaid lease agreement, County Administrator Brandt Richardson said the deal is good for the county. He said the county has closely analyzed costs and revenues and predicted power sales increases will trump operating costs in the future. Richardson added the plant revenues will likely

Thisweekend Burnsville brings the jazz Art and All That Jazz Festival returns to Nicollet Commons Park THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Art and All That Jazz Festival in Burnsvilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Nicollet Commons Park will be easy on the pocketbook. Now in its seventh year, the outdoor music festival on Saturday, Aug. 21, is a free-admission event. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We wanted to make it accessible to everybody,â&#x20AC;? festival chair Nigel Linden said of the decision to nix the $5 cover that was charged in past years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The parkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be completely open â&#x20AC;&#x201C; no barriers, people can come and go as they please.â&#x20AC;? What hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t changed at Art and All That Jazz is the lineup of top-notch jazz acts of both local and national renown. The live music kicks off at noon with the Jack Brass Band, a New Orleans-style brass band, and runs continuously into the evening, with Latin jazz guitarist Jesse Cook headlining at 8 p.m. Also on the bill are Steve Clarke and the Working Stiffs, the Penguins, and Lao Tizer with Karen Briggs and Chieli

Minucci. Organizers have added a covered stage this year, meaning that a little rain wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t put the kibosh on the festival â&#x20AC;&#x201C; as it did in 2007 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and performers can play through a drizzle without fear of equipment damage. Eighteen art vendors, each of whom had to pass a jury-selection process to be admitted to the festival, will be selling paintings, jewelry, sculptures and other fine-art items in tents along Nicollet Avenue, which will be closed to traffic at 134th Street. Festival-goers will have plenty of options to sate their hunger and slake their thirst, with about a dozen food vendors offering everything from turkey legs and corn on the cob to gyro salads and baklava. There will be a full bar. New this year is an instrument â&#x20AC;&#x153;petting zoo,â&#x20AC;? hosted by CDLC Preschool, with keyboards, percussion instruments and guitars for children to try out. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The kids can just come in and bang away â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the idea is just to get kids interested

Gardeners harvest first crop from community garden

by Kara Hildreth THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Growing healthful foods and a healthy communityâ&#x20AC;? is the motto for the new Farmington Area Community Garden. Gardeners gathered with baskets in hand to pick juicy, robust tomatoes, zucchini, peppers and green beans at the community gardenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s open house harvest Wednesday, Aug. 4. In full bloom, the community garden is thriving in a large, fenced-in garden space divided into 10 garden plots planted behind Meadowview Elementary in Farmington. This spring, new and veteran gardeners sowed seeds and built new connections with neighbors. The hope is that the garden will serve as a place to teach people how to garden and make healthful food choices. Since the garden is planted behind an elementary school, community program coordinator Barb Pierce said it will be a great place for teachers to take students on a walking field trip. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We will have a potato harvest in the fall and it will serve as a place for the kids to be learning about gardening and plant growth,â&#x20AC;? Pierce said. Working as a part of the school districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wellness program, Pierce said District 192 residents can rent a garden plot next spring. Gardeners come together to labor over planting, weeding, watering and harvesting. Gardeners learn new skills such as patience and determination as they wait until flowers bloom and veggies ripen, said Aaron Tinklenberg, district communications specialist. The community garden as a whole serves as a learning tool for inexperienced gardeners and those who sport a green thumb. The garden got its start after the Farmington School District received a $4,800 grant from Blue Cross Blue Shield and the Minnesota Department of Healthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Statewide Improvement Program (SHIP). â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is an affordable way for families who do not have access to a garden,â&#x20AC;? said Jodi Pire, community health specialist for Dakota County. Planning started last year and the planting took place in spring after volunteers installed a short fence with a gate to keep critters out. Then a shed was installed to store tools, and compost was brought in to amend the sandy soil. Community gardens have

â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is an affordable way for families who do not have access to a garden,â&#x20AC;? said Jodi Pire, community health specialist for Dakota County, who said more than 600 Dakota County residents are participating in nine community gardens in the county.

Aaron Tinklenberg, district communications specialist, helped harvest the first crop of vegetables at the Farmington Area Community Garden open house, alongside other gardeners on Wednesday, Aug. 4, in the garden planted behind Meadowview Elementary. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our goal is to connect residents throughout the community and educate students and residents about healthful food options and provide fresh produce to families in need,â&#x20AC;? Tinklenberg said.

Pierce said. Another partner is Smart Choices, a school-based initiative working to improve Dakota County school districts that is learning ways to improve healthful food choices in schools. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Over 600 Dakota County residents are participating in nine community gardens, and that is a cool statistic because 83 percent of those people are first-time community gardeners,â&#x20AC;? Pire said. Tended by food shelf vol-

etable plants in the spring. Dakota Electric in Farmington donated wood chips to line pathways between garden plots. Bachmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cedar Acres in Farmington gave a discount on landscaping perennials such as deep burgundy barberry bushes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I worked with Paul Gerten, who donated all the plants, and he was very generous,â&#x20AC;? Dargis said. District 192 residents can inquire about next yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s garden plots by calling (651) 460-3203 or visiting www. farmington.k12.mn.us/garden. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are hoping to get more volunteer involvement from the community next year,â&#x20AC;? Pierce said. Next spring the garden space will double in size to offer 20 plots that each measure 6 feet by 20 feet. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am surprised by how big the plants have got with the hot, wet summer â&#x20AC;&#x201C; everything is huge,â&#x20AC;? said Dargis. District 192 residents can sign up for a garden plot at Farmingtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Community Expo in January. During planting, weeding, watering, fertilizing and harvest, the garden site acts as a way to connect neighbors who have similar interests, Dargis said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is just another example of a good building project and it is a nice, collaborative effort that connects the city, the school district and 360 Communities,â&#x20AC;? said Dargis.

unteers, one garden plot is dedicated to growing produce that is donated to the Farmington 360 Communities Food Shelf. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is great to have it as a community resource and it is fun to be able to come together to get fresh produce that can be given away to the local food shelf,â&#x20AC;? Pierce said. Lisa Dargis, coordinator for Farmington Farmersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Market and city representative who served on the planning committee, said she worked to solicit donations of tools, supplies and plants from local businesses. The local businesses that helped sprout the community garden and get it off the ground include Pellicci Ace Hardware in Farmington, which donated garden tools.

THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

Farmington parents questioned why the Farmington School District could not release information about updated elementary grade enrollment at this weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Farmington School Board meeting. Tera Lee, a Farmington parent of four children, asked the school board why she and other parents could not access elementary grade enrollment numbers at each of five elementary buildings in the open forum during the Monday, Aug. 9, school board meeting held in the Little Theater at Boeckman Middle School. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is very frustrating for the school district to withhold information from the parents because we all care a great deal about our schools, and all we were asking with this request was to stay informed,â&#x20AC;? said Lee, who said she is seriously considering a run for a seat on the Farmington School Board. Elementary principals and administrators met Aug. 3 to discuss current enrollment numbers. Lee requested the information be shared with parents. Farmington School Board Chair Bob Heman forwarded Leeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s e-mail request to the administration, which responded by saying a few internal staffing adjustments were being made to address enrollment issues in some buildings. The administration reported elementary principals were in the process of informing affected staff of changes. The administra-

tion said the public would not be receiving the status report prior to staff being informed. The administration also said further staffing adjustments would be made, if necessary. Deciding to inquire about projected enrollment and elementary class sizes from neighboring school districts by telephone, Lee said: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Each one of them freely gave me their class size numbers with no reservations.â&#x20AC;? Understanding there is a continual flux in student enrollment during August and the total student enrollment is not known at each elementary building, Lee questioned why the administration would not release the information to parents. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Have we moved from being an informed and engaged community to the category of being an enemy who should be kept in the dark?â&#x20AC;? Lee said. At a previous school board meeting, parents said six additional elementary teachers were needed to cover all the â&#x20AC;&#x153;bubbles,â&#x20AC;? or larger elementary classes, that were projected for second grade and other grades. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were also assured somewhat strongly that we would have the money

in August to hire all the teachers we needed,â&#x20AC;? Lee said. Kim Dahlberg, parent of a North Trail second-grader and a middle school seventh-grader, voiced concern about high projected class sizes of 30 to 32 students in second grade. After the May 24 school board meeting, Dahlberg said she has been patient and understanding of how the administration and principals were closely watching higher class sizes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have been waiting and counting on the administration to ensure proper and adequate funds,â&#x20AC;? to fix larger class sizes, Dahlberg said. After being told she could not be given enrollment numbers for her school building, Dahlberg said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;We do have options to move our students to districts that provide a successful learning environment like District 196 and 194 where there are 24 to 25 students enrolled at the second-grade level.â&#x20AC;? Dahlberg asked the school board to ensure a 1.00 FTE (full-time equivalent) teacher be added at North Trail Elementary and to look at other higher class numbers at the five elementary schools.

High â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;bubblesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Elementary grade levels projected to have larger class sizes in the fall are: Second grade at North Trail Elementary with about 120 students, which could mean 31 students in a class. Second grade at MeadSee 192, 17A

Madore/from 1A

A scrappy battle Though the DFL did not endorse her, Madore was endorsed by several teachersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; unions, the National Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Political Caucus and the Minnesota Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Political Caucus. Both Powers, of Burnsville, and Madore, of Apple Valley, had been having trouble fundraising. Powers had raised nearly $82,000, according to the Federal Election Commission.

Housing/from 1A and clean-up of the site was almost totally funded by grants from the state and Metropolitan Council. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The city worked with the CDA and assisted in finding the site,â&#x20AC;? Olson said. But other than some block grant dollars, the city didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t spend anything to help the

192/from 12A owview Elementary with an estimated enrollment of 109 students, which could mean up to 28 students in a class. Second grade at Akin Road Elementary that currently sits at about 108 students with up to 27 or 28 students in a class. Second grade at Farmington Elementary with about 111 students that means classes could run

Some of that money is from the DFL (as an endorsee) and several thousand of that is from a loan to his own campaign. Madore raised just over $42,000, none of which is from Political Action Committees (PACs), she said. Those numbers are quite low compared to the $1.13 million Kline has in his war chest. Kline has been re-elected by as much as 40 percent every two years since he defeated Bill Luther in 2002.

Madore said she is not intimidated. She is dedicated to building a better Minnesota, she said, echoing DFL candidate for governor Mark Dayton. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Voters today want to hear how they will be able to keep their house and job,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Right now, (Kline) has not delivered that.â&#x20AC;? E-mail Aaron Vehling at aaron. vehling@ecm-inc.com.

CDA clean up the site. Swenson said the CDA manages and leases the 18 developments they have across Dakota County, but theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re actually owned by private investors. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Investors purchase tax credits and provide around 60 percent of the equity to build,â&#x20AC;? Swenson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The other money comes from

grants, philanthropic sources and other programs.â&#x20AC;? Swenson said US Bank is the primary investor for Meadowlark. For more information about the CDA, visit www. dakotacda.org.

with 28 or 29 students. Fifth grade at Farmington Elementary that has about 96 students and could mean class sizes are as high as 32 students. After much discussion, the Farmington School Board members asked the administration to release all the grade level information to parents. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was very happy that school board members went to bat for us last night,â&#x20AC;? Lee said, except for

board chair Bob Heman, who preferred waiting to release the building enrollment information. More elementary enrollment information will be shared with parents at an enrollment update given at the next school board meeting on Monday, Aug. 23, and prior to the first day of school on Tuesday, Sept. 7.

New conference will feature top-flight talent by Andy Rogers THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

It may still seem like the middle of summer, but fall practice will begin on Monday and we are less than two weeks away from the first game of the newly minted South Suburban Conference. While there are a few tennis tournaments, by my calculations the first varsity competition between two South Suburban Conference teams will be on Aug. 26 with girls tennis. The South Suburban Conference will feature mostly former Lake Conference teams, swapping Eden Prairie, Chaska and Chanhassen for Prior Lake. While most of the schools in the conference are familiar, the competition should be as strong as ever.

PRESSBOX Looking back to the fall season last year, taking away the omnipresent Eden Prairie, South Suburban programs still filled the state tournament brackets. Eastview and Lakeville North football both qualified for the state tournament. Burnsville volleyball finished third at the state tournament. Apple Valley was the state champion in boys soccer and looks like a favorite again this season. Lakeville North and Eagan both had representation at the girls state soccer tournament. Both Lakeville girls swimming programs fin-

ished in the top 10 at state. Rosemount made an exciting appearance at the state girls tennis tournament as well, and the Burnsville boys were third at state in cross country. Don’t count out Prior Lake as some cute, little addition either. The girls cross country program is one of the best in the state, finishing second last season. The volleyball team went 23-5, and the girls soccer team was the Missota Conference champion. I covered Prior Lake sports in the Missota Conference for a few years. The competition isn’t nearly as strong as the Lake Conference and there aren’t as many top-class schools. For instance, Farmington and Prior Lake were the only schools to compete in Class 5A for football. But they’re

a determined bunch to the west and they’re not going to shy away from anyone. The same teams might not get back to the state tournament like they did in 2009, but one of their fellow conference competitors will almost certainly get there. They can change the name of the conference, but every season, every sport will feature some of the best athletes in Minnesota.

Ouch!

Eagan Patriots 2-2 at regionals The American Legion baseball team from Eagan held their own at the Great Lakes Regional tournament in Mattoon, Ill., last weekend. Eagan went 2-2, defeating La Crosse, Wis., 12-5, and Tuscarawas County, Ohio, 12-1. The losses came against Terre Haute, Ind., 7-1, and Moline, Ill., 8-7. Neal Kunik, Matt Lichty, JD Dorgan and Louis LaChapelle each batted above .400. LaChapelle and Dorgan each had nine hits and Litchty had seven RBIs. Garrison Harris threw eight shutout innings and Neal Kunik struck out 11 in 8.2 innings.

North Dakota State University’s Zach Vraa broke his collar bone Sunday. The freshman wide receiver watched Monday’s practice with his arm in a sling. Vraa was Minnesota’s Mr. Football in his senior high school season. He is one of the top athletes to Rogers is at come out of Rosemount Andy andy.rogers@ecm-inc.com. High School ever.

Dakota County Gun Club tries to attract youths, women by Andy Rogers THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

With a new compound bow, Joshua Policarpio needed a place to try it out four years ago. He wanted to pursue his hobby of archery, but the city is a difficult place to practice. He discovered that the Dakota County Gun Club gives out free instruction the first and third Saturday in June, July and August. They provided free instruction on the proper use of .22-caliber rifles, shotguns and archery equipment. All ammunition is free and he received one-on-one training with certified firearm safety instructors. “I was intimidated by a rifle at first,” Policarpio said.

“I wanted to try something new.” He discovered the instructors were effective helping beginners as well as people who wanted to refine their technique. Four years later, Policarpio tries to go out at least five of the six sessions every summer, shooting targets and traps. One of the Dakota County Gun Club’s goals is to educate people on handling a rifle and how to do so safely. “What we emphasize if a youngster goes over to a friend’s house and shows them a gun – we teach youngsters how to handle that situation,” Dakota County Gun Club’s Bruce Vogelgesang said. “It’s not there to play with. We show them the ba-

sics, like never point the barrel at anything. It may never come up in their life, but it’s very important.” The Dakota County Gun Club has sponsored free sessions for youths and women for the past five years when they noticed a void in the area for gun safety programs. The next event is scheduled for 10 a.m.-2 p.m. for youths and 3-7 p.m. for women on Aug. 21. Everything is free for the participants, including the use of the firearms, ear protection and the ammunition, thanks to donations from vendors. Last weekend there were about 36 youths new to the sport along with a few regulars. The women’s session is free

University of Minnesota. It’s located south of Dakota County Technical College at 17501 Station Trail in Rosemount. The club works closely with the Department of Natural Resources. “They love this because this is part of what the DNR is all about,” Vogelgesang said. “They want to expand shooting as a sport. It’s going to help them with the kids and the outdoors.” The club currently has a membership which is capped at 450 members with a twoyear waiting list. Andy Rogers is at andy.rogers@ecm-inc.com.

for females age 16 and older. At the sessions, about 80 to 90 percent of the women have never picked up a firearm before. “Their husbands might have a gun around or they do target shooting,” Vogelgesang said. “They want to know if it’s going to scare them or not. It hasn’t really been available for the ladies. We anticipate more than 150 ladies out there.” The ladies session will have a number of different firearms on hand for testing. They’ll have Sharps rifles, buffalo guns, musket loaders, pistols, revolvers, shotguns, and AR-15 rifles. The Dakota County Gun Club has an 88-acre range in Rosemount leased from the

Youth sports crowd many families’ schedules all summer long, but it’s almost always worth it. Teams will play almost 70 games over the summer with tournaments just about every weekend. It takes some dedicated families, coaches and athletes to have all that fun every year. “I just enjoy working with kids,” Lakeville fastpitch coach Mel Simon said. “They keep me young and you can tell they appreciate it.” He coached his second oldest daughter this season with the Lakeville Invasion 14U that won the USSSA World Series in July. He works full time while spending the last 13 summers as a volunteer coach. “June through July is very busy,” Simon said. With his daughter on the team and one helping him coach, he spends more time with his family than many fathers. “I always say, if they want to work and put in the time, I’ll be there,” Simon said about coaching his daughters. Out-of-state tournaments turn into family vacations for many youth teams. “I have had some of my players with me for four years and it is very rewarding to see them develop into great little soccer players and even better people,” Dakota REV coach Tim

Thompson said. “I have watched some of these kids grow up right before my eyes. “To put that much work into something and have it end with a state championship is so rewarding. The feeling is indescribable.” There are many volunteer coaches who are mainly parents who volunteer their time all summer, while a number of the top teams hire top coaches. There are more than 1000 youth summer programs in the south metro and several have reached some high marks this summer.

National champ in Lakeville

“They have no ego. They just go out and play. “ In intense heat and humidity, the girls played nearly flawless softball to bring home the first 14U National Title home to Lakeville. Megan Lilliencrantz received the Tournament MVP Award and Kylie Stober received the Tournament Outstanding Pitcher Award.

Rebels win state Dakota Rev Rebels U14 girls soccer team won the 2010 state championship this summer at the Classic 2 skill level finishing with a record of 61-9-5. The girls won the Blaine Breakout, Rev-It-Up, Tonka Spash and the Rochester Invitational. The biggest highlight was winning the state tournament. Dakota REV Girls U11 Riptide also won a state title and two of REV’s premier teams won their league. Dakota REV teams play in the Rosemount dome and local school gyms all winter long and their season runs from May to late July with players from Rosemount, Eagan, Apple Valley, Burnsville and Lakeville. The Rebels earned 83.3 percent of their points (three for a win and one for a tie) this season, which means than can move up to C1, a higher level, in 2011.

Simon coached the Lakeville Invasion 14U, a club team with the Lakeville Fastpitch Softball Association, along with assistants Bob Harris and Eric Nelson, who won the USSSA World Series national softball tournament in July. The team includes two girls who played varsity softball last spring and three in junior varsity. The rest played either sophomore or freshmen softball, while one chose to participate in track. They played in two different leagues this summer, the Elite League and the Minnesota Fastpitch ASA league. Andy Rogers is at “One thing about this andy.rogers@ecm-inc.com. group is that they’ve very balanced,” Simon said.

During the Aug. 2 City Council meeting, city planner Daryl Morey said the restaurant will be open in the fall. Pizza Ranch will take over two storefronts in the strip mall adjacent to HOM Furniture.
