Lakeville boy’s 911 call saved his grandmother

Farmington district has four superintendent candidates All are current superintendents in Minnesota by Tad Johnson

Four-year-old receives national honor for his command of an emergency situation by Aaron Vehling THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

Kieran O’Neill is only 4 years old, but he’s already saved a life. He was at home last September with his grandmother, Nancy, when he noticed she was struggling. It was a brief period of time during which his father had just left and his mother was almost home, but Kieran did not wait for them to seek help. Instead, he picked up the

phone, dialed 911 and implored the operator to send an EMT to his house. “My husband’s mom has had some health issues,� said Kieran’s mother, Kandace. “She had started feeling light-headed, nauseous and dizzy.� Kieran stayed with his grandmother for about five minutes before the Lakeville Police Department arrived, Kandace said. The grandmother was in the hospital for a few days,

Hot Sam’s owner Gladys Hood died in December 2010, but her spirit lives on in the store’s category-defying existence. An aging submarine, a replica of the Statue of Liberty, oversized chairs and scores of antiques, trinkets and mechanical contrivances abound at the store that has become equal parts amusement park, landmark and magical wonderland. Thisweek Editor Larry Werner writes about his own experience with Hood on Page 4A.

After months of fundraising, organizing and measurable excitement, the Harmon Killebrew Field at King Park is finally ready. The rubber-surfaced field is designed to allow disabled children to enjoy baseball without the challenges of grass and dirt. To top it off, the June 26 grand opening celebration will feature some special guests, including Nita Killebrew, wife of the late Twins star, for which the field is named.

Meeks hired as Steamboat Springs superintendent Farmingtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new superintendent likely to start in July THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

Farmington Schools Superintendent Brad Meeks has been hired as the superintendent of Steamboat Springs Schools in Colorado, according to media reports. Meeks, who resigned from Farmington Schools Feb. 28, was one of two finalists for the position, according to the Steamboat Today website. He was unanimously selected for the position by the board June 20, following a 10-minute meeting, the website story stated. Board members there indicated to the press that Meeks impressed them with his experience and confidence in leading the district.

Meeks has been Farmingtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s superintendent since August 2003 and oversaw the passage of a $111.8 million bond for construction of the Farmington High School. Under his tenure, the district also developed a facilities plan and concentrated on improving district technology. Farmington School Board Chair Tera Lee said she is happy for Meeks and is pleased with the four superintendent finalists the board is considering to replace him. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All four are amazing candidates, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m very, very pleased with the options we have here. The subcommittee did a great job bringing those four to us,â&#x20AC;? Lee said.

The candidates, announced Monday and interviewed this week, are Jay Haugen, Rick Linnell, Kelly Smith and Rod Thompson (see related story). â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m very happy for Dr. Meeks. I think this is a great opportunity for him. The timing is perfect for him and for us,â&#x20AC;? Lee said. She estimated Farmingtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new superintendent would begin mid-July, after Meeks is likely begin in the new position. Under his separation agreement, Meeks may continue leading in the district until Aug. 15.

Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve lost Gladys â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a true local character by Larry Werner THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve spent any time commuting north on I-35 from south of Lakeville, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve probably seen the submarine. It sits up there on the hillside near a sign for â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hot Samâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Antiques.â&#x20AC;? Word is that Gladys Hood, owner of Hot Samâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, was offered $5,000 for that old sub years ago, but she decided it was worth more to her as a magnet for attracting motorists to her business that is as much theme park as antique shop. That submarine drew me years ago off I-35 onto the frontage road and into the swampy, wooded Hot Samâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s complex, where I got to meet one of the areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s true characters. I decided to share some thoughts

about Gladys after seeing her obituary in our paper last week. She died at 84 on Dec. 21, and her son, Bobby, placed a notice in the paper for a memorial service on Sunday. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never been to Hot Samâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve missed an antique business unlike anything anywhere. If you never met Gladys, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll get a sense from her place how interesting she was. I wandered into Hot Samâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one day while I was exploring the possibility of going into the antique business. I had some space in a commercial building in downtown Lakeville, and I was looking for some mentoring. At the end of the long drive that ends at the log cabin where Gladys

lived among thousands of furniture and trinkets. He collectibles she bought and bought big things, like the sold, I got more mentoring 25-foot submarine, old taxthan I was seeking. is, planes and a replica of A small woman with the Statue of Liberty holddark hair and a big smile ing a globe light instead of told me to sit down, poured a torch. me a drink and told me her Gladys Hood After I arranged to take story.

When Gladys was there, she Bobby, her son and business dominated the conversation with partner, wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t so much into old her stories about her career driv-

When she was gone to one of those air shows in Red Wing or Oshkosh, Bobby would talk about his winter travels to places warm where he found biplanes and Donald Duck teeter-totters to bring home to Minnesota. Gladys is gone, but her eccentric personality lives on at the business her son will continue to operate. And if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always wanted a submarine for the backyard, maybe you can convince Bobby to part with it.

Seek dental care from any licensed provider To the editor: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Practitioners overstate case for practicing dentistryâ&#x20AC;? brought more information regarding the new mid-level provider, a dental therapist, but has still left the topic incomplete.

I too am a practicing dentist in a community health center that serves primarily underinsured and uninsured individuals consider it important to detail further information. It is good that the writer agrees that there is a shortage of dentists willing to treat low-income patients. If there is a shortage for whatever reason then action will be taken to rectify the situation. I testified on behalf of dentistry to the State House Health and Human Services committee this past March. I believe that eating properly and having the ability to effectively chew proper nutrition is important to health. Further validating the importance of dentistry is that research is showing a link between periodontal (gum) disease and diabetes, heart disease and pregnancy problems. This past May, the Minnesota Dental Association introduced legislation to the state Senate rescinding their earlier (2009) agreed position that dental therapists be allowed to have their own office under a

collaborating agreement with a dentist. The intent of the law is to allow midlevel providers to go to underserved areas and improve access. The Minnesota Dental Associationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s position would have hampered access. A few other points to consider regarding the writerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s viewpoint. Children do miss millions of hours nationally due to dental pain and infection. More importantly is the fact they are just plain suffering. In my practice 99 percent of my patients are low or no-income. By far the major reason they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seek dental care is due to a lack of insurance, finances or dental offices wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let them in. At the University of Minnesota the dental therapists are taught and graded to the same standard as the dental students. To answer the question posed by the writer: â&#x20AC;&#x153;So, come on, who do you really want to be doing work in your mouth?â&#x20AC;? For those that have run into the obstacles put forward by dentists the answer is: any

Impressed by hiring process so far To the editor: I want to take a moment to commend both the Farmington School Board and Farmington City Council for the processes they have established to bring forward new leadership to each respective organization. While we do not yet have a new superintendent or a city administrator both the board and council have attracted outstanding candidates on paper with the possibility of future success appearing likely. Both the board and council have taken the approach that public comment and input is important and this is highly commendable given the history in Farmington. I understand how critical it is for the board to hire a candidate who is ready to take Farmington students to the next level of academic achievement and provide support to our high quality teachers and administrative staff. I also know first-hand how critical it is to have a city administrator ready to partner with the council and the city as a whole to achieve their goals and future success. While the results of upcoming hiring decisions

will not likely be known for a year or more down the road, I am very excited about the new leadership and hope other Farmington and Lakeville residents will be as well. I am hopeful that these two new leaders will build strong community partnerships that will reap positive benefits for many years to come. STEVE WILSON Farmington Editorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s note: The writer is a former Farmington City Council member.

Stop stomping on other peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dreams

ally? Someone was bitter enough to turn in a friendly elderly man for enjoying his hobby and finding an excuse to socialize on the weekends? My mother just moved out of her rental house in Arizona because her neighbors noticed she had a lot of house guests and turned her in for running a bed and breakfast without a license. Her neighbor was forced to take down an arbor he made â&#x20AC;&#x201C; after obtaining explicit permission from his landlord and spending a lot of time and money â&#x20AC;&#x201C; because a single neighbor complained that they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like it. The Republicans tout themselves as a party that encompasses the libertarians, yet they continually head measures like the current vote to ban gay marriage, ask the public to accept reductions in civil liberty for their safety, and refuse to recognize the humanity or â&#x20AC;&#x153;inalienableâ&#x20AC;? rights of any non-USA citizens. The Democrats arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t much better with their proposals to censor media and insistence on gun control. We are digging our own graves. Everyone is wearing a choke collar and holding someone elseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leash. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re feeling a little claustrophobic like me, consider voting against the constitutional ban on gay marriage, even if you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a personal stake in the outcome.

To the editor: There is an old saying â&#x20AC;&#x153;Democracy is two wolves and a sheep voting on what to have for dinner.â&#x20AC;? This saying always comes to mind when I hear about proposed bans on gay marriage. Advocating for the acceptance of gay marriage is not my battle. My battle is trying to get people to take a step back and quit stomping on each otherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dreams. We are all in the minority sometimes. Last summer, I stopped at a house where a retired man was selling his woodworking crafts out on his lawn. We got to talking and he explained to me that he would like to do that every weekend, but canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t because a neighbor turned him in for violating a city ordinance about how many garage sales a house- MACIE KORTE hold can have per year.

Yet 360 is determined to keep at least one of its shelters open. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is life and death. Women die in abusive relationships,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are their safety net and are trying to keep those critical services open.â&#x20AC;? Meanwhile, vocational colleges such as Dakota County Technical College will remain open along with state universities. Whether public transit will continue to operate remains unclear. Legislators remain divided on the governorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proposal. Some would like to see more services shut down, others would like to see fewer. Ultimately, the courts will decide. Minnesota Attorney General Lori Swanson and several legislators have filed separate appeals in separate courts.

Obituaries

Happy Anniversary!

Under Daytonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proposal, the state Corrections and Human Services departments will remain open and provide most of their services. Although cash, food and housing assistance will continue to be distributed to low-income families, thousands of cash-strapped parents may be financially burdened by the shutdown. Daytonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plan does not provide child care subsidies for low-income families â&#x20AC;&#x201C; assistance that approximately 1,267 Dakota County families rely on. Organizations that provide safe havens for domestic abuse victims will also be left out in the cold. 360 Communities â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which relies on state funding for its two shelters for women and children who are domestic abuse victims â&#x20AC;&#x201C; will probably never see this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grant money, said Mary Ajax, president and CEO of the Burnsville nonprofit.

April Whittlef, daughter of Jess and Adine Whittlef, of Eagan, MN, and Jonathan Baden, son of Mike and Ginny Baden, of Eagan, MN, announce their engagement. April is a 2004 graduate of Eagan High School and a 2008 graduate of UW-River Falls. She is a teacher in the Bloomington School District. Jonathan is a 2002 graduate of Eagan High School. He is a supervisor at UPS. The couple is planning a summer wedding.

Commuters who drive along Highway 13 or Cedar Avenue in Dakota County likely wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see much road construction under way next month. Dakota County officials say they expect that a state government shutdown which could begin July 1 will stall most road work. Although the county may have the funds to work on projects like Cedar Avenue, it cannot continue without state inspectors. Commissioner Willis Branning said the county may be able to hire a private inspector to move Cedar Avenue work along, but work on the Hastings bridge will likely stop. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Things are going to be pretty slow around here,â&#x20AC;? Branning said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The outlook is not good for any county in the state.â&#x20AC;? During the last shutdown in 2005, county services were largely unaffected since the state passed portions of its budget, said Matt Smith, finance director for Dakota County.

Officials expect to be hit much harder this time around as legislators and Gov. Mark Dayton fail to agree on any budget proposals. Millions of dollars dedicated to public health, driverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s licenses and domestic abuse services may not come after July 1. Dakota County faces a heavy financial burden: $71 million of its budget is comprised of state and federal aid distributed through the state. This money supports approximately 289 jobs within the county. It is unclear which specific services will be affected by the shutdown, Smith said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a moving target,â&#x20AC;? he said. County officials will need to determine which services among those not specified by the state are essential. Those deemed nonessential will be temporarily cut off. The countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s goal is to comply with state law, and provide as many services as possible without imposing on taxpayers, Smith said.

Farmington Dew Days went on, despite rainy weather Donnelly: Event was â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;bigger and better than last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; by Laura Adelmann THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

Despite a rainy Saturday, Farmingtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dew Days celebration was â&#x20AC;&#x153;bigger and betterâ&#x20AC;? than last year, said event chair Darla Donnelly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We still had a lot of people walking around down here Saturday with umbrel-

las, and the rain quit after the parade started,â&#x20AC;? Donnelly said. Although the final figures werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t available by Tuesday, the event made more than the $8,200 Dew Days earned last year, according to Donnelly. Dave Fletten, of Farmington, a Dew Days pork chop vendor for 16 years, said Friday night crowds were hopping and it was â&#x20AC;&#x153;like the good olâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; days, like it used to be.â&#x20AC;? Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rains kept crowds away until later in the day and Sunday yielded a disappointing turnout, Fletten said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll bet not more than 50 people were there Sunday. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to open the doors and bring in dollars when thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just 50,â&#x20AC;? he said, but

added that his sales were up from last year. Fletten said he plans to suggest Dew Days end on Saturday, as do other community events, including Lakevilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pan-O-Prog. Farmington Libraryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s teen events, which included duct tape crafts and Guitar Hero, drew about 4,100 visitors through the doors from June 16-18, Donnelly said. She noted that the Segway vendor was constantly busy with riders, 37 teams competed in the bean bag tournament, over 80 cars were driven through the town during Cruise Night, and the beer garden was a money-maker for the Lions Club. The Miss Farmington Pageant kicked off the event, drawing a large crowd that

included other local pageant royalty, including the Minneapolis Aquatennial. For the first time, the Miss Farmington title winner, Emily Schearer, will be eligible to compete with other pageant winners for the Miss Queen of the Lakes title at the Minneapolis Aquatennial. Next year, Dew Days organizers are planning to continue the festivalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s traditional games, food, music and events, but may put a tent over the beer garden. They are also contemplating ways to draw more people to Sunday events. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have it the same weekend, though, so we stay consistent and people keep going to it,â&#x20AC;? Donnelly said. Laura Adelmann is at dceditor@frontiernet.net.

Posh Baby Boutique opens with no loans, aims to capitalize on cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s youth movement

by Stacy Ackerman SPECIAL TO THISWEEK

Posh Baby Boutique, which opened last month in downtown Lakeville, offers trendy baby items typically found in small shops north of the river. The boutique carries unique clothing from newborn to size six, gift items for new moms and babies along with maternity clothing. Owner Kate Stockman of Prior Lake had a fiveyear plan to open her dream business, but things fell into place so quickly that the boutique opened four years earlier than she had planned. Stockman was able to do something rarely done in small business â&#x20AC;&#x201C; open without any loans. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I saved my money,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I worked seven days a week with my goal in mind. Everything just kind of fell into place.â&#x20AC;?

Her sister, Lynn Pieper, a mother of two children, ages 9 and 11, manages the store on a day-to-day basis. Stockman hopes to make running the boutique a fulltime career in the near future. She generated the idea to open the boutique from her new mom friends.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I kept hearing about the demand from friends having babies,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They kept saying there isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t enough cute baby stuff.â&#x20AC;?

Under NO circumstance should you send any money in advance or give the client your checking, license ID, or credit card numbers. Also beware of ads that claim to guarantee loans regardless of credit and note that if a credit repair company does business only over the phone it is illegal to request any money before delivering its service.

Schermann said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everyone is doing a high degree of difficulty so you really have to find other ways to stand out.â&#x20AC;? The balance beam isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the most popular event among other gymnasts, but Schermann worked on it enough to make it enjoyable. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fun to be good at it,â&#x20AC;? Schermann said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve heard other girls say they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like it as much, but I like being up there on the beam.â&#x20AC;? Between the double flips and twisting dismounts, one of her more challenging and favorite moves is the gainer on the bars where she spins up, and performs a flyaway (backflip) half turn before catching the bar again. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s already been working on her routines in Minneapolis.

Schermann is focusing on building her strength and conditioning. Although gymnastics is a physically demanding sport, she has never had to deal with any serious injuries. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You are pulling your own body weight around all day long,â&#x20AC;? Schermann said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen girls take one step wrong and snap their Achilles (tendon). Thankfully all Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had are the typical sprained ankles and soreness. Nothing a little rest wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take care of.â&#x20AC;? At first she hopes to contribute her beam and floor talents this season with all-around being her long-term role. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This last season she has improved incredibly on vaulting and bars,â&#x20AC;? Stephenson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We also are thrilled to have Kylieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s teamwork and sportsmanship qualities added to our team. She will fit in nicely in all areas.â&#x20AC;?

The last high school football game for most of Minnesotaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recently graduated seniors was almost eight months ago. But a few select players will have one last chance to put on their old high school helmets at 7 p.m. Saturday at the 38th annual Minnesota High School All-Star Football Game at TCF Stadium in Minneapolis. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one last hurrah for everybody here,â&#x20AC;? Eastview safety Frank Veldman said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all done with high school.â&#x20AC;? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the last time the players will represent their high schools before they play in college or hang up their helmets for good. Many South Suburban Conference rivals have joined forces on the South All-Star squadâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lineup. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It might be a little step above just high school football,â&#x20AC;? Burnsville halfback CJ Smith said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re out there, the holes close a lot quicker.â&#x20AC;? Smith and Veldman have joined several recently graduated seniors this past week for two-a-day practices with a number of the top coaches in Minnesota on the South AllStar team. They are joined by Apple Valleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Tom Obarski, Rosemountâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Brandt Berghuis, Eaganâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jameson Parsons, and Lakeville Northâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Al Erickson and Bret Piekarski. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a an unthinkable sight for diehard fans watching Smith receive handoffs from former rival Eagan quarterback Parsons. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fun now that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on my team,â&#x20AC;? said Parsons, who is one of two quarterbacks on the South team. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all really great guys. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been such an honor to be here.â&#x20AC;? Veldman was Smithâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rival at Eastview, but this is just the beginning of calling one another teammates. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to be roommates together at North Dakota State University where they will both play football. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(The all-star game has) been kind of a prep for college,â&#x20AC;? Veldman said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most of us havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t done anything in a while. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been great.â&#x20AC;? Veldman is playing in the secondary with former rival Erickson from Lakeville North. Without years of building chemistry, the two will rely on trust. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all really good players out there,â&#x20AC;? Veldman said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all talented here. I trust everyone. The fact that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all here speaks for itself.â&#x20AC;? Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re well aware of each otherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s skill sets.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Frank, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more of a tackler guy and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m more of a coverage guy,â&#x20AC;? Erickson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re playing the game you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really like them, but now weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re hanging out and having fun.â&#x20AC;? For Lakeville North stars Piekarski and Erickson, this is their chance to close out their high school careers with a win. They both admitted they took last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seasonending loss to Lakeville South hard, so one more high school football game gives them a chance to go out winners. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a big deal for all of us to play one more time in front of our coaches and friends and have the chance to go out with a win,â&#x20AC;? Piekarski said. High school football meant a lot to the players, so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nice that just a few weeks after graduation they get to put that Panther helmet back on. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We learned a lot of discipline and lots of character playing high school footballâ&#x20AC;? Er-

ickson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really nothing like it. We built a lot of relationships that will last a long time.â&#x20AC;? Erickson, who will attend the University of Minnesota in the fall, doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t plan on playing football anymore. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to end my career without a loss to a team that I really donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like,â&#x20AC;? he said. Like any recently graduated senior, this summer is full of transitions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m just looking forward to moving on with my life, growing up a bit and getting bigger for college,â&#x20AC;? Veldman said. For the first time since 1979, the game will feature the North All-Stars versus the South All-Stars instead of Metro versus Outstate. Tickets will also be available at the TCF Bank Stadium gate on Saturday â&#x20AC;&#x201C; $12 for adults and $5 for students. Andy Rogers andy.rogers@ecm-inc.com.

Posh/from 7A chase more products, and still have money left over.â&#x20AC;? Establishing a baby boutique in downtown Lakeville seemed like a good idea, according to Stockman, because of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tremendous growth and prosperity. Lakevilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s population increased by nearly 30 percent in the past 10 years, according to new figures recently released by the Census Bureau. With a population of 55,954, Lakeville is the 16th largest city in the state. It was the 20th largest in 2000. Besides being a booming city, Lakeville is home to a

lot of young families. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Someoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always buying a baby gift. There are always babies being born,â&#x20AC;? Stockman said. Stockman was born and raised in Prior Lake, but she and her husband hope to raise their family in Lakeville. He currently works in Lakeville, and with their first child due in August, the couple hope to relocate soon. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I fell in love with the town,â&#x20AC;? Stockman said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lakeville is a growing community. There is so much more going on compared to our town.â&#x20AC;? Stockman has already

become a member of the Lakeville Area Chamber of Commerce and the Downtown Lakeville Business Association. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We can bring new ideas to the community,â&#x20AC;? she said. Jeanne Hutter, director of tourism for the Lakeville Area Chamber of Commerce, said her friend opened a similar business in Cleveland eight years ago, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and people told her a highend boutique wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t succeed.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;(My friend) has done so well that she opened two additional stores,â&#x20AC;? Hutter said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People want to buy a really nice baby gift. The Chamber

will do everything we can to make sure Posh Baby Boutique succeeds as well.â&#x20AC;? Judy Tschumper, executive director of the Downtown Lakeville Business Association, said Posh Baby Boutique will be an asset to the community and to downtown. Plans are to keep a local flair to the store by supporting local vendors and not hiring outside employees. They hope to eventually incorporate childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s story times for stay-at-homemoms during the week. Stockman and Pieper recently traveled to a trade show in Las Vegas to find the hottest baby trends. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We carry lots of lines and brands that are unavailable in Minnesota. We offer different and unique oneof-a-kind items not found at Target or Babies â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;R Us,â&#x20AC;? Stockman said. The store does not currently offer a baby registry, but may add one in the future. Stockman has had several requests for hosting baby showers, and they plan to do so as things settle down a bit. The boutique has opted out of selling its items online because they want to work one-on-one with each customer. Posh Baby Boutique is planning an official grand opening during Pan-O-Prog. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Things are really busy right now and we expect a busy summer,â&#x20AC;? Stockman said. Stacey Ackerman is a freelance writer from Lakeville. .

Candidates/from 1A compiled from local residents. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The news in the last six months scared some people away,â&#x20AC;? LaCroix said in reference to the departure of Superintendent Brad Meeks and some other top level administration officials. He said those conversations helped result in a large group of applicants. He said it is rare to have two metro area school superintendents in a finalist group for a metro area opening.

The candidates The Farmington School District provided some brief biographical data on the candidates and other information that follows was found from recent news reports. In June 2006, Haugen was selected as superintendent in District 197, which Thisweek Newspapers covered at the time. Prior to that, Haugen Kyle/from 1A ery, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure.â&#x20AC;? The ribbons will be available at Lakeville City Hall, Lakeville Liquor stores and the Central Maintenance Facility at 179th Street and Cedar Avenue. Branham asked the council and the audience in the chambers at the meeting to consider the great sacrifice and struggle our na-

was the superintendent of schools in Sleepy Eye, Minn., for 10 years. A former region coordinator for the Minnesota Department of Education, he also worked on curriculum and staff development for the Redwood River Education District, based in Redwood Falls, Minn., and was a teacher at North Dakota State University. Linnell also rose to his current position in 2006. The Pequot Lakes School Board voted in April of that year to offer the job to Linnell. Prior to his current post at the school district north of Brainerd, he was superintendent of the St. Clair School District for 10 years, one of which was as acting superintendent, according to news reports. His other experience includes serving as a high school and elementary principal and teacher in the Hawley school district for 14 years. Smith is superintendent

of the 1,400-student Belle Plaine district, which is on the southwest edge of the Twin Cities. He has been a superintendent for 18 years. Prior to that, he was an assistant superintendent/business manager, assistant principal/activity director, athletic director, coach and high school teacher. Thompson started in his current post on July 1, 2006, according to the Northeaster newspaper. Prior to that, Thompson was superintendent of the Greenway School District near Grand Rapids, Minn., for two years. Prior to becoming a superintendent, Thompson was a high school principal, assistant principal, teacher and coach. For more on the candidates and updates to this story, go online at www.

Branham said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;or about the sacrifices that a wife with two young sons must deal with as she holds a family together while sharing her husbandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s daily struggles, or try to imagine what parents go through

worrying, watching and helping as their son and his family rebuild their lives. â&#x20AC;Ś When you think about these things, you know that Kyle Malin, his wife Alicia, sons Calib and Cy, and parents Deb and Jon, are all heroes.â&#x20AC;?

He described his theater education at Carnegie Mellon as rigorous â&#x20AC;&#x201C; full of â&#x20AC;&#x153;allencompassing, 17-hour days, especially the first few years when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re expected to work on (production) crews.â&#x20AC;? Among his classmates at the school was Ethan Hawke. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He took a leave of absence to do this film called â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Dead Poets Society,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;? Jensen said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I ran into him and told him, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m happy for you, but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a pretty dumb name for a movie.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;? His career, like that of any actor, has had its ups and downs, he said. There have been the appearances on network TV shows such as â&#x20AC;&#x153;CSIâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Law and Order,â&#x20AC;? a host of off-Broadway acting parts

  ďż˝

And it was instructors such as Deborah Lysholm, currently the director/owner of Heartbeat Studios, who helped him cut his teeth as a performer. Lysholm choreographed the high schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual â&#x20AC;&#x153;Broadwayâ&#x20AC;? music and dance review in which Jensen appeared in 1986. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was just a very funny, very genuine, very talented student,â&#x20AC;? Lysholm said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I could see back then that he could have a career with it.â&#x20AC;? Jensen, who said he acted â&#x20AC;&#x153;in pretty much every playâ&#x20AC;? at the high school from 1986 to 1988, decided to pursue his dream of becoming a professional actor and enrolled at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh as an acting major.

Apple Valley High School graduate Erik Jensen now lives and works in New York City as an actor and writer. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s appearing in an upcoming episode of the sitcom â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Always Sunny in Philadelphiaâ&#x20AC;? and is working to have his graphic novel â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Reconcilersâ&#x20AC;? adapted into a Hollywood film.

 

 

Of all his film and TV roles, actor Erik Jensen says his favorite was playing Thurman Munson in the 2007 ESPN miniseries â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Bronx is Burning.â&#x20AC;? Portraying the burly AllStar Yankees catcher definitely had its perks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I got to gain 30 pounds for the part â&#x20AC;&#x201C; I got to eat six meals a day and drink three beers a night,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Then I got to play baseball for three months.â&#x20AC;? Another bonus of being cast in the eight-episode series about the â&#x20AC;&#x2122;77 Yankees was that it put Jensen in front of the camera with A-list actors such as Oliver Platt and John Turturro. He likened working with Turturro, who played Yankees manager Billy Martin, to being in the presence of a Rembrandt painting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a master. You watch him work and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re like, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Wow, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really good,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? said Jensen, a 1988 graduate of Apple Valley High School who now lives and works in New York City. Jensen will be returning to his former hometown next month to teach a two-day acting camp July 16-17 at Heartbeat Studios in Apple Valley. An actor whose film credits include the 2001 Martin Lawrence comedy â&#x20AC;&#x153;Black Knightâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Book of Shadows: Blair Witch II,â&#x20AC;? Jensen said he first caught the acting bug as a student at Apple Valley High School. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The middle school Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d been at in Minneapolis didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even have a theater,â&#x20AC;? Jensen said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I got to Apple Valley there was this tremendous energy in the theater and music departments. Not only were we acting in shows and filling the theater every performance, we were participating in an artistic community that we were told mattered.â&#x20AC;?

and the 20-some film credits. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also found success as a writer â&#x20AC;&#x201C; his play â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Exonerated,â&#x20AC;? co-written with wife Jessica Blank, ran off-Broadway for two years and starred Richard Dreyfuss and Susan Sarandon. But he admits thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also a good deal of drudgery involved in his chosen career path. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are these gaping periods of two to three months where you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have work,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My job has been basically to go out and job interview every day of my life. You get one out of 20 of â&#x20AC;&#x2122;em.â&#x20AC;? One objective of the Heartbeat Studios acting camp, Jensen said, is to give students some idea of what might lie in store if they decide to follow in his footsteps. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want them and their parents to know that deciding to do this doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to be a waiter for the rest of your life,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lots of avenues you can go down.â&#x20AC;?
