Lakeville North speaker to inspire classmates More than 870 to get diplomas at Lakeville’s graduation

by Derrick Williams THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

It shouldn’t come as a surprise that the captain of Lakeville North High School’s speech team would want to be the student speaker at graduation. But Alexis Friesen needed some convincing. “My friends convinced me I’d be good at it, so I thought I’d give it a try,� she said. “I think I can be inspiring and represent the class.� So on June 11, when Lakeville North’s class of 2010 celebrates its commencement ceremony, Friesen, 18, will be the student-selected speaker offering words of wisdom and poking fun at herself. “I’ll certainly try to be funny,� Friesen said. “But I’ll also have a message that we’ll have all these wonderful memories from school, and we have to keep them in our heart, but at the same time, we have to focus forward.� And forward for Friesen means going to the University of Minnesota’s Twin Cities campus to study to be a pediatrician. “Or teaching. I love kids,� she said. “During the summers I’m a fulltime nanny.� She’s also been active

Farmers’ market open early this year Weekly downtown event starts for the summer season series June 24 by Kara Hildreth THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

Opening two weeks earlier than its inaugural year, the Downtown Farmington Farmers’ Market will be able to sell early spring berries and vegetables during its second season. The market will be open from 3 to 7 p.m. Thursdays beginning June 24 until Sept. 16 at 109 Spruce St., behind city hall and near the library. “If we start in July, it is

FARMINGTON too late for berries,� said Lisa Dargis, coordinator of the market, which also offers local baked goods and handmade crafts. The market has received good reviews from vendors. “I thought the Farmington farmers’ market was really good because I expected the turnout to be half of what it was, but I sold more in Farmington than in Eagan that is six

times the size,� said Aaron Brand, owner of a Farmington dairy farm and an apple orchard. Brand plans to sell apples, raspberries, honey, farm fresh eggs, along with

apple cider, chips, pies and crisps. Last year, attendance was high on opening night when city staff gave away 200 free Chico Bags in 20 minutes, Dargis said. Besides opening two weeks earlier, city staff surveyed residents to gather feedback on what they wanted to see added. “What we heard most from people in our survey last year was that they See Market, 20A

Former PTO treasurer charged with theft Stolen money has been returned to Oak Hills PTO by Derrick Williams THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

The former treasurer of a Lakeville elementary school’s parent-teacher organization has been charged with theft after allegedly taking thousands from the group’s coffers. Lisa Bostic Miller, 45, who formerly served as the treasurer of the PTO at Oak Hills Elementary, has been charged with two counts of felony theft and two counts of misdemeanor theft. All told, Miller transferred $45,500 of PTO funds to her family’s checking account over the course of a number of years, the charges allege. The money has been paid back, but it wasn’t until she

LAKEVILLE became aware of a police investigation, according to the Dakota County Attorney’s Office. The case first made news last fall when PTO members discovered the group’s checking account had just $66 left in it when it was supposed to have had more than $15,000. Lakeville Police were notified and an investigation quickly ensued. Between May and September of 2009, records show the Oak Hills PTO’s bank account was raided to purchase season tickets for University of Minnesota football games, salon treatSee Theft, 7A

City will plant new trees New advisory board will review future tree removal by Kara Hildreth THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

New maple and linden trees will be planted in yards or boulevards in one downtown Farmington neighborhood after many mature trees were removed as part of the Walnut Street reconstruction project. After discussing the recent controversial tree removal at a workshop Tuesday, June 1, the council agreed that trees needed to be replaced and a Tree City USA advisory board be created. The board would include city staff and community residents who would review road construction projects that involve potential tree removal, according to City Engineer Kevin Schorzman. The board’s creation and review process will be incorporated into a revised ordinance that must be approved by the Planning See Trees, 7A

FARMINGTON ISSUE HISTORY At a recent council meeting, many neighbors protested the removal of 21 boulevard trees on both sides of a block of Fifth Street in downtown Farmington. The tree removal was part of the city’s Walnut Street reconstruction project to replace aged and deteriorated sewer, water main and pavement. Trees were marked at 7 a.m. April 7 and by 8:30 a.m. the trees were removed, to the residents’ shock. The city sent a notice to residents April 2 that generally mentioned tree removal would be necessary, but did not specify which trees would be removed.

Local legislators talk about session to Lakeville chamber Budget is biggest topic of 2010 state legislative session by Derrick Williams THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

Missed opportunity. Disappointing. It could have been worse. Such were the messages from local elected leaders following the 2010 state legislative session that wrapped up May 17. Rep. Mary Liz Holberg, R-Lakeville; Rep. Patrick Garofalo, R-Farmington, and Sen. Pat Pariseau, RFarmington, talked about the session during a Lakeville Area Chamber of Commerce luncheon at Brackett’s Crossing Country Club on June 1. Garofalo said the handling of the state’s multi-billion budget deficit was disappointing. “We just kicked the can down the road,� he said. Garofalo said without some kind of revenue increase, he can’t imagine what the 2012-13 budget will look General 952-894-1111 Distribution 952-846-2070 Display Advertising 952-846-2011 Classified Advertising 952-846-2000

DAKOTA COUNTY like. “I have to be honest even if it’s not popular,� he said. Holberg said the session was a missed opportunity to enact structural reductions to the budget. “The unallotment lawsuit sort of caused a tail-spin, but the reality is that a majority of the cuts were approved on a one-time basis this year,� Holberg said. “The cuts aren’t permanent so the spending bounces back next year.� She also said the budget deal was something of a “get out of Dodge strategy.� “With the elections coming and most people looking ahead to the governor jumping into the presidential race, this is what kind of came out of that,� Holberg said. For Lakeville Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Todd Bornhauser,

the session was a win for the business community, even if it didn’t result in a lot getting accomplished. “There wasn’t a lot of activity and that is beneficial,� he said. “When the session began, there was talk of $4 billion in new taxes, many of which would have targeted business. That didn’t happen and that’s good for business.� The three legislators talked about racinos and Vikings stadiums in addition to the budget. Garofalo also touched on another disappointment he had from the session, the failure to enact education reform and walking away from applying for more than $300 million in federal Race to the Top funds. “The (teachers) unions are in opposition to reform, and so we walked away,� Garofalo said. “That was a disappointment. Reform is supported on a bipartisan basis

She was particularly proud of the expansion of the Ignition Interlock Program aimed at reducing repeat DWI offenses. An ignition interlock

device prevents a car from starting unless a driver passes a Breathalyzer test. “This makes the roads safer,� Holberg said. “It’s proven to reduce repeat offenders.� The bill expanded upon Minnesota’s existing pilot program – DWI offenders could choose to either drive

Lakeville

  City is new, but it’s getting old, staff says   

by Derrick Williams THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

On one hand, Lakeville is still one of the fastest growing communities in the metro area. On the other, it’s starting to feel some aches and pains, officials say. “Our city is starting to age,� City Administrator Steve Mielke told staff and City Council members at a work session on May 24. The point of the meeting was to discuss a first draft of the city’s 2011-15 Capital Improvement Plan which focuses on rehabbing or replacing some of Lakeville’s roads, trails and buildings. Finance Director Dennis Feller said the city would maximize non-tax revenues to pay for the nearly $119 million in projects over the five years, including trans-

fers from the general fund, state and federal grants and Municipal State Aid Street Funds. But Feller said that doesn’t spare the tax levy from an increase in 2012 and beyond. According to the plan, the tax levy for the Capital Improvement projects would be more than $7.8 million by 2015, a $1.5 million increase over the $6.2 million being doled out for projects in 2011. Council member Kerrin Swecker expressed concern over the potential tax increase. “This is considerable,� Swecker said. “My concern: what residents will think of that.� Mielke said because of the economic conditions of the past couple years, cities, including Lakeville, have pushed maintenance projects down the road. “We can’t continue to do that,� he said. “Our trail systems, our road systems are in need of maintenance.�

Included in the plan is a docket of projects Mielke said the council would prioritize and make independent decisions on. The projects range from road and intersection improvements, to trail and park maintenance, and even building and water and sewer line work. Among the road projects discussed was an extension of Kenrick Avenue from 175th Street to 181st Street. The project would provide a connection between the Best Buy- and Target-anchored Timbercrest commercial district with the business and commercial area along County Road 50 at Interstate 35. Another major road project, a re-configuring of Dodd Road, would begin in 2012 and turn it into a four-lane divided highway between 183rd Street and Hayes Avenue. A roundabout would also be installed at Dodd and Highview Avenue. The plan also calls for

the city to rehab more than 90 miles of trails around the city, and expand and complete the loop around Lake Marion. The City Council will likely discuss the Capital Improvement Plan again in a work session before it goes before the group for a vote later in the year.

Group seeking more centralized location by Derrick Williams THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

360 Communities, formerly known as Community Action Council, has announced the closing of its Lakeville Neighborhood Resource Center in downtown Lakeville effective June 21, when its lease ends. According to 360 Communities Director of Development Laurie Rieb, the community group is looking for a new, more centrally located site for its center. “The current location is on the southern end of our service area, and we’re looking for the perfect location that’s more centrally located for our donors, volunteers

 

and families we serve,� Rieb said. The current location at 20730 Holyoke Ave. also has a food shelf, which will close. Messiah Lutheran Church, part of the 360 Communities network of food shelves at 16725 Highview Ave., will extend its hours, and will now be accepting donations and providing basic needs, according to the group. Matt Little, a 360 Communities volunteer and Lakeville resident, said he and a group of citizens will also be opening a food shelf in the Lakeville downtown area to help with demand. “A staggering 3,000 people utilized the resources at the current (downtown) location in 2009,� Little said. “There will only be a dedicated group of individuals

working free of charge to assist people during their times of economic hardship.� Rieb said the hope is to keep the Neighborhood Resource Center in Lakeville if a suitable location is found. According to a press release, 360 Communities will continue to serve the community through Partners For Success Family Support Workers located in Lakeville and Farmington-area schools, its network of other food shelves, and its staff in the Lakeville Police Department. Rieb said she will continue to maintain an office in Lakeville. Visit 360Communities. org for more information or call (952) 985-5300.

Opinion Thisweek Columnist I like coffee shops and polite political discourse by Larry Werner THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

I’ve mentioned in this space a time or two that a couple of my favorite lunch spots are Mainstreet Coffee Cafe in downtown Lakeville and Jo Jo’s Rise & Wine in Burnsville’s Heart of the City. These businesses have much in common – independent coffee shops by day and wine bars at night, ownership by women with entrepreneurial passion and salads that meet my criteria for rabbit food with a twist. When I walk into Jo Jo’s, the friendly workers get to work on my cranberry walnut salad with chicken, and at Mainstreet, the staff knows I want the Buffalo chicken salad with cashews. But these places offer me more than good food: They are places where you’re likely to encounter local movers and shakers having civil conversation about civic life.

In other words, you can find something at these establishments that is in short supply these days. A few weeks back, while enjoying my salad at Mainstreet, Dave Thompson stopped by my table to exchange a few thoughts about his upcoming race for state Senate. Thompson, a lawyer and former conservative radio host, said it’s nice he and I can be friends even if we disagree on many things political. Dave, a Republican, said he’s heard nice things about Steve Quist, a Farmington Democrat who will be running against Thompson for the District 36 senate seat. That kind of comment is in stark contrast to the name-calling and conspiracy-theorizing that is passed off as political dialogue these days. Which leads me to our annual attempt at civility known as elec-

tion letters. With the filing deadline last Tuesday and the primary Aug. 10, Managing Editor Tad Johnson is bracing himself for the usual blitz of letters from the supporters of candidates. For years, Tad has attempted to enforce the letters policy that sets a 350-word maximum and a deadline of 4 p.m. Tuesday for the Friday edition. The policy, which appears under the “Opinion” button on ThisweekLive.com, includes other criteria, such as a priority for letters by those who haven’t already submitted letters in support of a candidate. We don’t want the letters columns dominated by the same campaign supporters. Included in the policy is this single line that addresses the issue of civility: “Do not submit letters with libelous information or personal attacks.” In the current political environment, it’s sometimes hard to find commentaries that don’t in-

clude personal attacks. Our policy, by the way, does state that while we must limit the number of letters we print in the paper, we will attempt to publish “all suitable letters online.” In fact, our website is a great place for those coffee-shop conversations between people with different views. We have recently redesigned ThisweekLive.com. Our web editor, Dawn Igoe, has made the site much easier to navigate for readers and contributors. Dawn decided to use software called Wordpress, which was originally designed for blogging – the electronic conversations that are part of the Internet. At the bottom of each article or letter is a box that allows you to “leave a comment.” Since we launched the new website in April, many more readers are leaving comments than was the case on the old ThisweekLive. And, I’m happy to report, our page views are up

significantly. The other day, I was watching News Hour on PBS. The nightly news program had a report on a discussion about whether the Internet and cable news have contributed to intelligent discussion of issues or turned the discussion into a paintball fight. One of the experts took the position that any discussion of issues, even nasty uninformed discussion, is contributing to the democratic process. It’s a valid point. But at Thisweek Newspapers, we hope the conversation during the upcoming political season is more suitable to a coffee shop than a bar room. The candidates have all filed. Let the discussion begin. Larry Werner is editor and general manager of Thisweek Newspapers and the Dakota County Tribune. He is at larry.werner@ecm-inc. com.

Letters Schools raise money to pay for technology To the editor: A special event May 14 had each of Lakeville’s middle schools combining their mile-run in physical education with the run-athon fundraiser Tech Trek. All proceeds are going directly to purchase new technology for the schools. As the PTO coordinator for this event at McGuire Middle School, I wanted to pass on my heartfelt thanks to the MMS students, families, and staff for helping to create a wonderful event. Family and friends of McGuire raised more than $10,000. There were dozens of parent volunteers and staff members who went above and beyond in planning and operating the event and the students were so great cheering on their classmates. It was a terrific event and a great success for our first time. During the planning stages, I was asked a number of times why this fundraiser was important. After all, there all already many computers within the school. District funds for technology have been frozen for quite a few years, with no new technology being added. However, the demand for newer computers has increased consistently, both as existing computers age, and as more state testing via computers is required. This last item is ironic given the lack of state and district technology funding. Most importantly is that students use these machines every day, in all facets of their education, sometimes in classes where you’d least

expect. The most up to date computers are in the school labs, but these labs have been fully booked since late April through to the end of school in June by teachers and classes scrambling for their turn during regular class time. There are computers in each student team area, but they are many years old and only basic functions can be performed. We as a community could have chosen to do nothing, but I am proud that these middle schools and their families chose instead to make a difference. One small step, but that is how a journey begins. With sincere thanks to all who participated. CHRISTINE PRESTON McGuire Middle School parent and PTO member

Reflecting heat To the editor: Concrete driveways and light-colored roofs reflect a lot of heat into the atmosphere. According to Ernest Orlando Berkley National Laboratory’s 1,000 square feet of white roof replacing a black one reduces CO2 emissions by 10 tons (www. c l i m at e c h a n g e. c a . g ov / events/2008_conference/ presentations/2008-09-09/ Hashem_Akbari.pdf.) With the melting of the polar icecaps, which reflect a lot of sunlight, we must do something to make up for the loss. Replacing dark, asphalt driveways with light colored surfaces like concrete and dark shingles with light shingles would make a significant reduction in heat absorbed. HARLEY HORSAGER Lakeville

Study finds Kline’s no earmark stance is good for state To the editor: A new Harvard Business School study shows how John Kline’s “no earmark” policy benefits Minnesota. The authors of the study were shocked to find that in the years following a congressman’s ascendancy to the chairmanship of a powerful committee, the average firm in his state cut back capital expenditures by roughly 15 percent, according to their working paper, “Do Powerful Politicians Cause Corporate Downsizing?” The study found that although the average state experiences a 40 to 50 percent increase in earmark spending if its senator becomes chair of one of the top-three congressional committees, the average firm in his state cuts back capital expenditures by about 15 percent in the following year. Employment and sales growth are also affected, as corporations scale back employment growth by 3-15 percent, and sales growth falls by up to 15 percent. In other words, government spending adversely affects private sector economic activity. That’s where jobs come from, as well as tax revenue. Kline has stood firm in his opposition to earmarks, while his political opponents have tried to paint this policy as bad for Minnesotans. This new Harvard Business School study reveals that a “no earmark” policy is good for Minnesota’s economy. CAROL S. COOPER Farmington

Thisweek Columnist Farmington, Lakeville seniors score much better than state average by Joe Nathan THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

Congratulations to Farmington and Lakeville students, educators and families. Ben Kusch, Farmington High School principal, told me that the school will graduate approximately 385 students. Only one student won’t graduate because of not passing the state’s reading test, and all seniors passed the state’s writing test. Lakeville North principal Marne Berkvam reported that the school has 444 graduates, with all seniors passing the state’s writing test and only one failing to pass the reading test. Scott Douglas, Lakeville South principal, says the school will graduate 437 students. Only one student won’t graduate because of not passing the state’s writing exam, and just one didn’t pass the reading test. This is considerably better than the state’s average – about 7 percent of Minnesota’s seniors, or 5,000 students, have not yet passed the reading test. About 3 percent, about 1,900, have not passed Minnesota’s writing test. So several thousand students won’t graduate this spring, at least in part because they haven’t passed Minnesota’s reading and/or writing tests. Those figures were released last week by the Minnesota Department of Education. I checked with about 20 Minnesota districts to find out how their students fared. • Anoka-Hennepin estimated that about 4.5 percent of its students will not graduate, in part because they have not passed one or both of these tests. About 3,000 will graduate. • At the PACT Charter located in Ramsey, all of the seniors passed. Fortynine students are graduating. • Northwest Passage Charter in Coon Rapids has 27 students graduating. James Steckart, the school’s director told me “our

school is a little different. Most of the students are graduating after their cohorts (because) they typically come to the school one to two years behind their peers in credits, as well as not passing the required tests.” • All 82 of Caledonia’s seniors passed the tests. • In Cambridge, 355 students are graduating, one won’t because of the writing test, and four won’t because of the reading test. • All 260 seniors at Rogers High School passed the test, as did the 32 graduates at Spectrum, a charter public school in Elk River. Should we even have required tests? Part of the answer to that comes from a question about how you feel about the driver’s license exam. Doesn’t it make sense to have some required level of knowledge to drive a car? How about passing a state’s bar exam? Shouldn’t attorneys be required to show they know certain things before they are allowed to practice law? In each case, I think the answer is yes. It may take some of us longer. People learn at different rates. Some people are better test takers than others. Some of us may have to take the driver’s test, or the bar exam several times. Passing such tests doesn’t mean we will be perfect drivers or attorneys. But it does mean we have some knowledge that the state recognizes as important and valuable. Clearly, that’s true for Farmington and Lakeville graduates. So to them, and to the families and educators who helped the young people gain their knowledge: Well done! Your accomplishments are worth celebrating. Joe Nathan, a former public school teacher and administrator, directs the Center for School Change, Humphrey Institute, University of Minnesota.

She also teaches Sunday school. Her work ethic comes from her parents, Angela Koloski and Greg Friesen, and her nine siblings, Alyssa, Nick, Matthew, Ryan, Brandon, Serena, Derek, Michael and Hannah. While active in many things, speech is Friesen’s love. “I’ve always loved performing and being in front of crowds,� she said. “Speech was a perfect fit.� So much so, she became a state champion, winning in a new category called great speeches. Friesen also says her choir trip to France was one Trees/from 1A Commission before City Council approval. “It was a good meeting as far as the outcomes,� said Sheri Speckan, a Fifth Street resident. “At least they are doing what they should do,� Speckan said. “We got what we wanted – the city agrees to plant trees and to make sure this does not happen again,� Speckan said. The loss of the mature trees that were estimated to have stood for more than 40 years is still hard to accept, Speckan said, but the new trees will be welcome. “That is what people look for when they come

Theft/from 1A

– we try not to think about it,� she said. “Half of my friends are staying here, the other half are going elsewhere. So we talk about the beach, or bonfires and the cabin.� For her fellow seniors, and the future ones at North, Friesen does have some advice. “Don’t be afraid to do what you want to do,� she said. “It’s cliche, but don’t let things hold you back because we all have the ability to do what we want.� Friesen wants to make a difference in people’s lives, so pediatrics, or if that doesn’t work out, being a teacher, is her plan. Friesen points to Julie Cutshall and Jennifer Baese

as two teachers who have inspired her. “They taught me to be confident even if you have to fake it, and have given me an ability to carry myself in a positive way,� Friesen said. “They have helped me become a better leader, student and person.� Friesen said she’ll miss the inclusive nature of North and the friends she’ll inevitably fall out of touch with. “There are so many ways to get involved and that inclusiveness also fosters individual talents,� Friesen said. “It’s a great school and this has been a wonderful time.�

into the downtown area; big trees and the aesthetic appeal,� Speckan said. The estimated cost to replace trees is $6,513 or $167 per tree. Trees removed on Walnut, Spruce and Fourth, Fifth, Sixth and Seventh streets will be considered for new tree planting. In future weeks, a city staff person will visit homeowners to find out if residents have a tree preference and location in either the boulevard or the yard, according to Schorzman. After further research, it was discovered that Spruce Street and not Walnut Street is the boulevard tree route in this area, Schorz-

man said. Resident Tim Dougherty said he was concerned about creating uniformity after learning that residents have the choice of location. The city will pay attention to uniformity, but also wants to create a good mix of trees, Schorzman said, in order to avoid a disease that could wipe out a single species. After the new trees are thriving, Dougherty said perhaps a neighborhood block party will be planned at the end of summer. “It was the right thing to do in this day and age,� Dougherty said. Speckan said she and

her husband, Eric, and neighbors feel better with the decisions made this week at city hall. “I was amazed at how many people in the community came up to talk about the trees because so many people were interested in it,� Speckan said.

card linked to the group’s account during the period when a number of “suspicious transactions� occurred. She also requested the PTO’s annual financial audit, scheduled for last May, be postponed, the document said. Miller, who has a degree in accounting and an MBA, worked for more than 20 years in the bank-

ing industry before losing her job in October 2008, shortly before the thefts began, according to the Dakota County Attorney’s Office. Miller made her first court appearance on June 1. Her next court appearance will be June 21. E-mail Derrick Williams at: lakeville.thisweek@ecm-inc.com

After a courageous battle with lung cancer Charles “Charlie� A. Ziemer passed away on May 25, 2010, surrounded by family. Charlie’s enthusiasm for life inspired those around him, and was endeared by all who knew him. Charlie was born on March 4, 1931 in Winona, Minnesota. On June 28, 1948, he married Inez M. Beach in LaCrosse, Wisconsin. The couple made their home in Dakota, Minnesota until moving to Goodview, Minnesota in 1964. In 1967, due to transfer of work territory they relocated to Sioux City, Iowa until 1975, at which time they returned to Minnesota, first living in Eagan, and later building a new home in Rosemount and remained there until they retired in 1998. Since 1998, they have split their time between their summer home in Rochester, Minnesota and their winter home in Phoenix, Arizona. Charlie started working for the Milwaukee Railroad on February 14, 1949, and continued to work on the railroad for the next 44 years. In his years on the railroad, he had worked the entire western rail system between Chicago, IL and Tacoma, WA, first as a laborer for the maintenance way then as the foreman for the department beginning in 1955. His welding career with the railroad span many miles of rail for the Milwaukee Road, Soo Line, and the Canadian Pacific railways. After retiring from the railroad, he worked summers for Kaufman Lawn and Tree Service of Rosemount, welding and maintaining all of the equipment until the fall of l998 when he and his wife sold their home in Rosemount and headed south for the winters. He enjoyed spending time with family and friends. He also enjoyed country music, anything to do with railroads, and camping. He is going to be missed by all who know and loved him. He was a great husband, father, grandfather, and great-grandfather, and friend. We all loved him. He will be deeply missed by his wife of nearly 62 years, Inez; five children, Patricia Ziemer (John Johnson) of Rochester, Minnesota, Raymond Ziemer of La Crosse, Wisconsin, Cheryl (James) Knutson of Mazeppa, Minnesota, Robert Ziemer of Inver Grove Heights, Minnesota, and Bradley “Buck� Ziemer (special friend Deborah Burns) of Surprise, Arizona; five grandchildren, Amy (Cory) Packman, J e s s i c a ( M a n u e l ) Knutson-Deleon, Sara Knutson, Shannon Ziemer, and Charles G. Ziemer; step-grandchild, Tami (Matt) Soens; great grandchild, Cameron Deleon; step great grandchildren, Isabella Soens, and Greta Soens. Two half-sisters, Irene Thompson of LaCrescent, Minnesota, and Anita Calhoun of Winona, Minnesota. He was preceded in death by his mother, Florence, and step-father, Emil Roemer. There will be a memorial service on Sunday, June 6, 2010, at 2:00 p.m. at the Riverside United Methodist Church in Dakota, Minnesota with Pastor Mary Keen officiating. Friends and family may visit one hour prior to the service on Sunday at the church. A family service for interment of his ashes at the Hiler Cemetery, Nodine, Minnesota will be at a later date.

Thisweekend School honors its ‘Legacy’

Some Rosemount High School students who performed in this year’s OnStage production will be part of the school’s first Performing Arts Legacy Gala on Friday, June 18.

Rosemount High School to stage show with past, present, future students by Tad Johnson THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

Legacy. We all leave one. A legacy can shine bright like the glow of a spotlight on an otherwise dark stage. The spotlights will shine on many of Rosemount High S c h o o l ’s past, present and future stars in the arts when Steve tribute is Boehlke paid to the school’s legacy with a special performance Friday, June 18. The first Rosemount High School Performing Arts Legacy Gala will feature a night of song, dance acting and the honoring of the first Legacy Award. Steve Boehlke, longtime Rosemount High School choir teacher, was selected as the Performing Arts Hall of Fame award’s first recipient. Before the tribute is offered to Boehlke, Rosemount High School students past, present and future will offer a range of performances from instrumental music to acting. The 90-minute show will include pieces from thirdthrough eighth-grade students participating in the week-long Vocalmotion music camp and music and theatrical selections from those who have long since graduated. Proceeds from the show

IN BRIEF The Rosemount High School Performing Arts Legacy Gala will be at 7 p.m. Friday, June 18 in the school’s Performing Arts Center. Tickets are $10 and went on sale to the general public Thursday, June 3, through the RHS school web site at www.district196.org/ rhs/theaterarts, or by calling the box office at (651) 423–7540.

An interview with Boehlke and Steve Albaugh can be seen in the Video Archive at www.ThisweekLive.com. will go to the school’s recently-established Performing Arts Foundation, which aims to raise money to purchase items, such as its initial goal for an auditorium soundboard. “At RHS we have an incredible amount of pride in our past,� said Steve Albaugh, choir director. “Many other high schools in the area have established athletic halls of fame. We thought what a neat way to make a statement about how important the arts are at the school and in the community in establishing this.� Albaugh, one of the many organizers of the show, said a major challenge

has been deciding what to include in the first performance. Once word spread that the show would include former students, Albaugh said they started getting many phone calls and e-mails from people asking how they could help. He said even though some may not get a chance to perform this year, there will be many more shows to stage in future years. “We felt in thinking about a word that encompasses Rosemount High School and the arts and the word was legacy,� Albaugh said. “This is not a one year shot.� He said it will be important for the Vocalmotion students to see how they can grow in their performance skill by watching the high school students and in Photo by Rick Orndorf turn for the graduating The Rosemount High School Performing Arts Legacy Gala on Friday, June 18 seniors to see that their will include a performance my members of the school’s dance company. “role in the arts community doesn’t stop when they walk across the stage and receive their diplomas.� “The arts plays a vital role in the life of our Vocalmotion, open ceive instruction from RHS week of June 14-18.

Caponi Art Park’s outdoor theater celebrates 10th anniversary

Lakeville Art Festival earns state grant

This summer marks the 10th anniversary of outdoor concerts in Caponi Art Park’s Theater in the Woods. Work on the Theater in the Woods began in 1998 after the “Storm of the Century� hit the area, blowing down hundreds of trees in the future amphitheater site. It took an entire season to remove the damaged trees and two more seasons to shape the grounds and build the stage. The Theater in the Woods was built with a minimal budget, a Bobcat and by hand, one block at a time. In spite of all the work that went into creating the amphitheater, many say it still looks untouched as though it always has been this way. Family-friendly activities are scheduled throughout the summer to celebrate and mark this milestone. Ring Mountain Creamery will sell ice cream at each event. The Summer Performance Series will bring regional and local artists to the park. All concerts begin at 6:30 p.m. in the Theater in the Woods and a $4 per

The Builders Association of the Twin Cities has contracted with Keystone Report, a local research firm, to maintain a database with information about new residential construction permits around the metropolitan area. After a builder has picked up the permit from a city, Keystone Report compiles and updates weekly residential housing permits by city for 70 percent of the metropolitan-area municipalities in the greater 13-county region. Planned units are the total number of housing units planned to be built under the permits issued (one permits is issued per building which may include more than one housing unit). Permit value does not include the land/lot costs.

May continued the recent positive trend for residential permit statistics. Mayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s permits, units and value showed strong gains over May of 2009, while year-to-date figures also were substantially higher than a year ago. According to statistics compiled by the Keystone Report for the Builders Association of the Twin Cities, there were 324 permits pulled for a total of 482 units during the month of May, 2010.

Year-to-date, permits rose by 182 percent, units by 166 percent, and value by 162 percent . One 77-unit project in Minneapolis helped boost multi-family homes up to 38 percent of the total units. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Indicators look very promising,â&#x20AC;? said Builders Association of the Twin Cities 2010 President Gary Aulik. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mortgage interest rates have dropped to near alltime lows, and the Minneapolis Realtors Association has reported rising home sales

prices for several months. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These factors, coupled with a dropping unemployment rate will hopefully offset the expected drop in sales due to ending of the federal stimulus tax credits.â&#x20AC;? Aulik said. Minneapolis led the metro in building activity for the month with 82 units permitted. Blaine followed with 33 units, Maple Grove had 30 units permitted, followed by Shakopee with 29 and Hudson, Wis., with 27.

Lakeville South speaker reprises role by Derrick Williams THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

Believe it or not, Adam Kunkel is actually prepared for the moment heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll stand in front of his fellow seniors and deliver a speech to all of Lakeville Southâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s graduates and their proud families. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s done it before. In elementary school, Kunkel, 18, delivered a speech to his fellow sixthgrade graduates from Lakeview Elementary School. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I killed it. I knew I wanted to do it again,â&#x20AC;? Kunkel joked. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The teachers and some parents said theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d see me again when I was a senior.â&#x20AC;? No kidding. And on June 11, when Lakeville South High Schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s class of 2010 receives its diplomas, Kunkel hopes to be the one offering a light-hearted look at the journey from childhood to adulthood. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been thinking about the speech in the back of my mind for years,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For me, I wanted to give the message, to get in front of everyone and say something about this journey. I know almost all these kids and I wanted to be the one to sum it all up.â&#x20AC;? Kunkel joked he was the type who paid too much attention to girls when he was younger, but as the school years ticked away, he found his groove as a student. That transition also led to a good lesson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wish I had been more involved early, and less involved later,â&#x20AC;? he said of his high school career. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I kind

Wish I had balanced that better.â&#x20AC;? Kunkel is active in speech and is also a member of the National Honor Society and Buddies Club at South. The youngest of four

boys to his parents Rod and Rita â&#x20AC;&#x201C; his brothers are Tony, Kevin and Thomas â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Kunkel said it was one of his brothers who got him hooked on speech. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I played football in ninth grade and it was clear I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t cut out for that,â&#x20AC;? Kunkel joked. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I knew I wanted to do an activity, and my brother was in speech. I knew I could be

good at it.â&#x20AC;? By his junior and senior years, Kunkel was doing creative expression, which he said is like a theatrical stand-up routine, and original oratory. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I liked that because I was going back to back in different rooms and making (people) laugh, and then talking about something I cared about,â&#x20AC;? Kunkel said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was just a wonderful experience.â&#x20AC;? Kunkel will be headed to

St. Johnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s University where heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll study engineering or teaching, he said. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll also coach speech at a local high school. With college on the doorstep, Kunkel said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll miss the lack of responsibility that comes with high school. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Things still seem young and innocent,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Once you move on, everyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an adult.â&#x20AC;? In the meantime, for the students who will still be in school next year, Kunkel has some advice. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Have fun. High school can be so serious for kids who are super involved. They spend all their time on homework and work â&#x20AC;&#x201C; I was one of them â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be over soon and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll never get it back,â&#x20AC;? he said. In his time at South, Kunkel said, English teacher Lisa King and chemistry teacher Jarrett Sommers had an impact on him. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Both seem like theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re having so much fun and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re both positive role models,â&#x20AC;? Kunkel said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I admired that. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a reason why Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m thinking about teaching.â&#x20AC;? Teaching or not, Kunkel, not surprisingly, said his dream job is to be a motivational speaker. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In fairness, I wanted to do that way before the student speaker thing,â&#x20AC;? he joked. But before that, he plans to spend some quality time with his friends before college, and take a trip to the Boundary Waters with some of them. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want it to be a great summer,â&#x20AC;? Kunkel said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll look back at it and this whole experience and have great memories.â&#x20AC;?

Dakota County Local governments increase amount spent on legislative lobbying by Laura Adelmann THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

In 2009, local governments continued a three-year upward trend of spending on lobbyists. According to reports filed with the Minnesota state auditor, local governments spent $8.8 million on lobbying activities in 2009, an increase of $329,592, or 3.9 percent, over the amount spent on lobbying services in 2008. Dakota County, either as the county or its Regional Rail Authority, reported spending $190,666 on lobbying.

The amount includes contracted lobbyists, staff who LOBBYING COSTS lobby, and association dues Local cities reportpayments, a portion of which ed spending a total of are paid to lobbyists on the $112,828 in association countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s behalf. dues to lobbyists and According to the report, lobbying contract fees: Dakota County was one of Eagan $32,785 the 78 governments that paid Burnsville $22,522 over $100,000 to hire or conLakeville $22,122 tract with lobbyists. Apple Valley $21,843 The city of Minneapolis Rosemount $ 7,080 led that list, reporting it spent Farmington $ 6,476 more than $400,000 for lobbyists. Dakota County paid $188,545, respectively, for $122,414 for its own lobby- similar services. ists while Ramsey and Anoka Of Dakota County cities, counties spent $137,206 and

Eagan led contract/association dues spending, reporting $32,785 spent on lobbying. Burnsville came in second of the Dakota County cities, reporting a total of $22,522 spent for lobbying through association fees. Lakeville and Apple Valley, with similar populations of 50,000 to 54,000 and both anticipating major transportation changes with the Cedar Avenue Bus Rapid Transit project, each spent around $22,000 for lobbying through association fees in 2009. Rosemount and Farmington, also with similar

populations of about 19,000 to 22,750, spent $7,080 and $6,476 respectively for lobbying, also through association dues. Local school districts also reported their lobbyist spending, but did not include payments to professional associations that lobby on behalf of specific professional occupations within local governments, including Education Minnesota. The report states that the Rosemount-Apple ValleyEagan School District spent $28,540 on lobbying, while ISD 191, Burnsville-Eagan-

Savage, spent $14,282. Farmington and Lakeville school districts each reported less than $5,000 on lobbying. In the report, State Auditor Rebecca Otto noted the operation and funding of local governments can be greatly affected by decisions made by the state Legislature, and called it understandable that local governments would want representation during the legislative process.

a $63,000 discount on his divorce attorney bill, is being challenged. Dakota County Assistant Attorney Larry Clark and Stephen Allen Baker, a Lakeville attorney, both filed for the seat. Laura Adelmann is at laura. adelmann@ecm-inc.com.

Rock, country come to Kelley Park Local trio 4 Degrees of Freedom opens summer concert series June 11 by Andrew Miller

IN BRIEF

THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

Confusion is common at 4 Degrees of Freedom concerts. For audience members, it can sometimes seem like theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re seeing double. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have to make a conscious effort to wear different clothes because it can get confusing for people,â&#x20AC;? said Travis Laurent, who fronts the rock/ country trio with his identical twin brother, Kalin. 4 Degrees of Freedom kicks off the free, summerlong Music in Kelley Park concert series with a performance at 6 p.m. Friday, June 11. The series hosted by the Apple Valley Arts Foundation features a different band each week along with local food vendors in the park at Fortino

The Music in Kelley Park concert series opens Friday, June 11, with a 6 to 9 p.m. concert by 4 Degrees of Freedom. Hosted by the Apple Valley Arts Foundation in the park at Fortino and 152nd streets near Enjoy! restaurant in Apple Valley, the free Friday-night concerts run through Aug. 13 and feature local food vendors; a full schedule is at www.applevalleyarts.org. and 152nd streets. 4 Degrees of Freedom â&#x20AC;&#x201C; formed in 2000 while the Laurent brothers and drummer Dan Shaw were

students at Lakeville High School â&#x20AC;&#x201C; are regulars of the south-metro music scene, logging shows at Rudyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Redeye Grill in Lakeville and Majors Sports Cafe and Rascals Bar and Grill in Apple Valley. Travis is a physics teacher at Apple Valley High School, while Kalin teaches physics at Lakeville South; both sing and play guitar in the band. Shaw runs a catering business, Lunchtime, in Burnsville. Originally called Blue Thunder, the band changed its name when its members realized the moniker didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make any sense. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thunder doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a color,â&#x20AC;? said Travis, explaining that â&#x20AC;&#x153;four de-

grees of freedom,â&#x20AC;? a physics term, jibes with the brothersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; background in science. Specializing in classic rock and country, the band covers tunes by the Beatles, Creedence Clearwater Revival and Garth Brooks, and performs original music. Not limited to rock venues and outdoor festivals, the trio also plays weddings, private parties and, occasionally, nursing homes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s taken us all over,â&#x20AC;? Travis said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My brother and I met a 108-year-old lady one time. She told us stories about Eleanor Roosevelt.â&#x20AC;? Photo submitted

driving to goal,â&#x20AC;? Leavell said. Lakeville was down 6-5 at halftime, but Leavell wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t worried. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was just anxious for the girls to get their momentum,â&#x20AC;? Leavell said. In the second half Lakeville regrouped, shuffled its lineup and scored 13 more goals. The team took on Bloomington Kennedy in the Section 3 final on Thursday. The results were unavailable at press time. The state girls lacrosse tournament is scheduled for June 9 at Chanhassen and June 11 at Mounds View. Andy Rogers is at andy.rogers@ecm-inc.com.

This season has easily been the best one in history for the Lakeville girls lacrosse team. The girls qualified for the Section 3 finals after defeating Eagan/Rosemount 18-10 on Tuesday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They are having so much fun this year that I think pure determination â&#x20AC;Ś is driving them on,â&#x20AC;? coach Kate Leavell said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to reach milestones that Lakeville hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t in the past and our eyes are set on getting into that state final, one game at a time.â&#x20AC;? The only loss during the regular season was to Eden Prairie. Otherwise Lakeville has been domi-

nant thanks to a balanced lineup. Against Eagan/Rosemount, senior captain Olivia Perry scored eight goals and freshman Hannah Koloski helped out with a hat trick. Danica Cutshall helped out with two goals and three assists. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With several players literally limping down the field from season injuries, the girls really dug deep to pull out the win,â&#x20AC;? Leavell said Abbie Ness, Emily Engelheart, and Kacie Waagbo each had a goal and two assists. Although Lakeville won 18-10, the outcome wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t apparent in the first half. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The girls had a really hard time finding their rhythm and just werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t
