Costs, predecent cited for rejection Navigating Cedar of Little donation Avenue will be a Council member had pledged half his salary to help pay for police position

challenge

by Aaron Vehling THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

One Lakeville City Council member’s good intentions have created some rifts. To help pay for a police records tech position through 2011, Council Member Matt Little pledged half his annual council salary, which amounts to more than $4,300. That promise, which the City Council rejected in a 3-2 vote on Monday, April 4, has served to become a lightning rod in the debate over budget reductions. In order for the City Council to accept a donation, at least four out of the five members must vote in favor. Council Member Colleen Ratzlaff LaBeau and Mayor Mark Bellows were the dissenting votes. Both said that accepting a council member’s donation to

Bellows LaBeau fund a position sets a bad precedent. Little, who was visibly shocked by the deci- Little sion, said after the meeting he was disappointed Bellows and Ratzlaff LaBeau “put divisive politics before the citizens.” “I’ve never been given such a hard time for donating money to something,” Little countered during the meeting. Bellows told Thisweek on Tuesday, April 5, that alSee Little, 10A

Construction work for a BRT line began this week Photo by Rick Orndorf

Dakota County and the Metropolitan Council have begun construction along Cedar Avenue in Apple Valley and Lakeville to accommodate the forthcoming bus rapid transit (BRT) line that will run along the corridor and connect with the Hiawatha Light Rail line at the Mall of American Transit Center. by Aaron Vehling THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

Short-term troubles for long-term gains. This is a mantra that pervades travel along Cedar Avenue in Apple Valley and Lakeville. Dakota County kicked off two years of construction for the new bus rapid transit (BRT) line along the street last Monday, April 4.

The initial phase of construction starts at 155th Street in Apple Valley and ends at Dodd Boulevard in Lakeville, said County Engineer Mark Krebsbach. Crews will widen Cedar to create lanes dedicated to bus and emergency vehicles. The idea, Krebsbach said, is that buses will be able to circumvent traffic. Hence the “rapid” in BRT.

During the construction, cars will use the inner lanes while the outer lanes are worked on and vice versa, Krebsbach said. In 2012, the county will so the same thing with the northern end of the project area in Apple Valley from 155th Street to 138th Street, which is just before Cedar becomes a freeway. Finally, in 2013, “we’ll

be back for any final paving that might be needed,” he said. Turf establishment and landscaping work will ensue. The process of moving the utilities from along Cedar (where the wider lanes will end up) started last fall, Krebsbach said, but had to be delayed because of early and excessive snowfall.

Crystal Lake boundary change recommendations announced Plan seeks to ensure neighbors attend the same schools by Aaron Vehling THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

Students currently attending the soon-to-be-closed Crystal Lake Elementary in Lakeville could attend neighboring Christina Huddleston, Oak Hills and Orchard Lake elementary schools if the School Board approves the changes later this month. The Lakeville school district’s Attendance Area Adjustment Task Force presented the announcement at an April 5 Board study session. Over the course of March and into early April, the task force considered five parameters and several other factors to determine the destination schools for Crystal Lake Elementary’s 447 students. In March, the School Board voted to close Crystal Lake and repurpose the

Crystal Lake Principal Bill Mack said he cares deeply for

the future of the children under his purview. He learned of the Task Force’s recommendation Wednesday, April 6, and his first response to it was that it “looked logical,” he said. The plan stems from those aforementioned parameters: • Minimize disruption to students families in all grades; • Avoid the creation of a “racially identifiable school”; • Utilize natural boundaries and keep neighborhoods together; • Minimize the number of students moving from a “fee zone” to a “no fee zone” (in terms of bus transport); • Utilize building capacities to create a sustainable and efficient plan for the schools. The gist is that the Task Force sought to ensure that the idea of neighborhood See Boundary, 3A

Longtime fire chief Barry Christensen dies at 67 For 22 years, volunteer chief guided Lakeville department from single station to three stations with 75 firefighters by Aaron Vehling THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

When Barry Christensen, Lakeville’s longestserving fire chief, began his tenure in 1978, the city had one fire station and 35 firefighters. When he left the volunteer position in 2000, the city had three stations with 75 firefighters. “He was one of the finest fire chiefs to ever serve the fire service,” said Bob Erickson, a former Lakeville city administrator and close friend of the former fire chief.

The men all shared one major thing in common: They were all raising girls. “We had a goofy arrangement where we’d perform the YMCA (dance) at each of the girls’ weddings,” Oelkers told Thisweek. “It got pretty stupid, I’ll tell you.” Oelkers and Christensen shared something else in common: They both worked in some form of aviation, albeit in different sides, and were both interested in trains.

Christensen was a dispatcher for Northwest Airlines, and Oelkers was a manager in the airways facilities department of the Federal Aviation Administration. Both worked at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport. “A lot of the time federal employees don’t get along with airline employees,” Oelkers said, but for the two neighbors, friends and train aficionados, getting along was not an issue.

ISD 194 plans aggressive leadership search Lakeville School Board wants to act fast to find new superintendent by Aaron Vehling THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

the best possible candidate in a national pool of candidates â&#x20AC;&#x201C; requires a degree of time commitment and sophistication that the Board could not do alone. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They are networked so differently than we would ever be,â&#x20AC;? Keliher said. The board members generally agreed that the district deserves the best, most-qualified leadership and to attract someone of that caliber requires an outside firm. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The confidentiality of a search firm helps attract superintendent candidates,â&#x20AC;? said Board Member Jim Skelly. In addition, said Board Member Kathy Lewis, a search firm can offer a

certain level of objectivity and expertise in the screening process. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think there is nothing less than finding the best we possibly can,â&#x20AC;? she said. Board Member Bob Erickson said that the district should not entrust compensation negotiations to the search firm. Volk agreed, saying the firm should focus on the attributes and criteria the board desires in a candidate.

termine two or three firms to ask to make presentations before the board. Firms on the list were recommended by Sandy Gundlach, director of school board services with the Minnesota School Board Association. Gundlach said the average superintendent search process takes between three and six months to complete. To help identify quality candidates, the board also plans to meet to define the districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s goals and direction.

schools remained intact and that the redistribution of kids would result in an integrated arrangement that would pass the test of time. Class sizes will remain manageable because of each of the three receiving schoolsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; excess space. Middle and high school boundaries will remain intact, said Lake Marion Elementary Principal John Braun, who presented the Task Forceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plan to the Board. In addition, the recommendation minimizes the number of elementary schools sending students to multiple middle schools. Braun said that in order to maintain those natural boundaries, the Task Force combined the Districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s data on students and Dakota Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s GIS data to create sophisticated maps. That allowed for considerations of â&#x20AC;&#x153;roads and geographic features to keep the neighborhoods together,â&#x20AC;? Braun said. Another concern was keeping an even distribution of white and non-white

students in the three receiving elementary schools. Because District 194 is â&#x20AC;&#x153;racially isolated,â&#x20AC;? Braun said, the Task Force had to ensure there was not a 20-percent difference between the percentages of white and non-white students in a school and the districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s average of 14 percent. The result is that, at the high end, about 20 percent of the students enrolled at Orchard Lake would be

Singewald said. To guide the search process, the board agreed to hire a consultant. Five search firms were selected to submit written proposals for the job by April 20: Springsted Associates; School Exec Connect; BKB Associates, ADM Group and Kenneth LaCroix.

Farmington School Board members decided at a March 30 workshop to focus on finding a permanent superintendent rather than seeking an interim district leader. Their decision was influenced by the resignations of the districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s finance director and human resources director. Both district leaders resigned days after learning Superintendent Brad Meeks had agreed to leave the district; his contract requires him to leave on or before

Aug. 31. Board members agreed that filling those additional vacated positions should be a decision for the new superintendent. For some candidates, the unusual opportunity to build that leadership team may be the key thing that makes them want to apply to the district, Board Member Julie Singewald said. But, if the right superintendent candidate isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t found, board members agreed they might have to hire an interim in that position, and rely on that person to fill those other key leader-

District 192 seeks replacement for Brad Meeks by Laura Adelmann

              

   

Amid a climate of change in the Lakeville school district, the School Board wants to make its superintendent search process as aggressive and thorough as possible. Board members agreed at an April 5 study session to set a path toward approving a contract with a superintendent search firm by May 10. That date is contingent on the Board meeting on April 13 to determine search criteria that would be included in a request for proposal (RFP). The new superintendent would start, ideally, by Aug. 1, at least

according to the aspirations of some of the School Board Members. Others even suggested aiming for a July 1 deadline. Outgoing Superintendent Gary Amoroso announced on March 15 he was leaving the district effective July 1 for a position as head of the Minnesota Association of School Administrators. Vice Chair Michelle Volk said she had heard from community members who wondered why the board could not just conduct a search on its own.

Opinion Guest Columnist Sexual assault can happen to teens; know how to prevent it by Ann Sheridan SPECIAL TO THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

All traces lost. Where did she go? So innocent and free. The world has consumed her. She has bought into their lies. Searching for love and happiness, She has been beaten and broken. There are too many defeats. Life weighs heavily on her shoulders. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hanging on by just a thread. He slithered upon her. Temptation engulfs her. She danced with the devil. He seduced her with his darkness. His words are laced with lies. The poison burns her throat. Pleasure in the shadows. What has she done? All innocence lost. Where did she go? Where is her dignity? Where is her self-worth? Snatched away from her in the night. He delights in what he has stolen. She canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel. Disappointment, hurt, fear, anger. The tears wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t come. Where did she go? All traces lost.

This poem was recently written by a 17-year-old victim of sexual assault, who graciously allowed me to share it with you. It is heart-wrenching in its sincerity and desperation, and it serves as an honest glimpse into the emotional, mental and physical struggles of a teen affected by sexual violence. But my teenager isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t at risk of sexual assault. Studies say that one in four girls and one in six boys will have been sexually abused by the time theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re 18. Perhaps more troubling is that the perpetrator is almost always somebody the victim knows â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a boyfriend, a family member. I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think of the last time I worked with a victim who was assaulted by a stranger. What we see most of the time with teens is that they went to a party, started drinking and things went a little too far. She said â&#x20AC;&#x153;noâ&#x20AC;? but because they were drinking and flirting, the teenage boy thinks that she wants to

have sex, even though sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s saying â&#x20AC;&#x153;no.â&#x20AC;? My teenager doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t drink, so I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to worry about her. Sexual assault doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always involve alcohol and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not always at parties. Sometimes itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in a car, or after school at a parentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; home when theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re away. There is no typical victim. They come from every income level, every race. They have parents who are home all the time and parents who are not home very often. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re active in sports or theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re interested in acting or music. It can happen to any teenager, at any time of the day. What can I do to help prevent sexual assault? There needs to be more education in schools, especially with boys, around â&#x20AC;&#x153;What does â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;noâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; mean?â&#x20AC;? and how alcohol can lead to poor decisions. Teenage girls need to make â&#x20AC;&#x153;noâ&#x20AC;? very clear. Just because theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re flirting with boys or kissing them, that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t automatically mean they want to have sex. A lot of parents donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want their kids to talk about this, be-

cause of course their kids arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t having sex. People donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe it exists in their house. But open communication is key. Talk about different situations: â&#x20AC;&#x153;If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re at a party and you feel unsafe, even if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been drinking, you can count on me to pick you up.â&#x20AC;? You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to say that drinking is okay, but whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worse â&#x20AC;&#x201C; drinking or sexual assault? How will I know if my teenager has been sexually abused? For girls who have been victimized, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s amazing what they go through. They might run away. They might alienate their friends. Their grades will go down, because the assault consumes every minute of their day, and for them to get through school is difficult. All the time, we see victims blaming themselves. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll come in to join a support group and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re still trying to figure out if theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re to blame or not. Did I wear clothes that were too revealing? Did I come on too strong? Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re questioning a lot of what they did, when really itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the offenderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fault. How can I support my teenager

if I suspect he or she has been a victim? Encourage them to get counseling. Check out support groups, such as those we offer at 360 Communities. Talk to them about reporting the incident. A lot of teenagers donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to report this because theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re drinking when it happens. But almost all the time, police officers could care less about the alcohol. Above all, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pressure your child. Giving him or her the power to decide what they want to do, whether or not to report the incident, is huge. Ann Sheridan is director of Violence Prevention at 360 Communities and she is responsible for direct supervision of advocates at Lewis House in Eagan and in Hastings, including sexual assault services. Sheridan also develops the training curriculum to ensure services to victims of domestic violence and sexual assault are tailored to meet individual needs.

Letters No to Walmart To the editor: Recently it was announced that Walmart will be building a store in Lakeville. Since then itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been interesting talking with friends and neighbors about this project. I havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t come across one person who thinks this is positive for the area, particularly given the location at County Road 70 and Interstate 35. Can you imagine what a mess the traffic is going to be there, especially when the Lakeville theater is showing some of the summer or holiday blockbusters? The reaction to this announcement is totally different than when the news was released a few years ago that Target was building the SuperTarget off of 185th Street. Pretty much everybody was happy that Target was moving into the area. I understand, given the economy, cuts to local government, etc., the city is in need of new business coming to Lakeville. However, like the controversial Brunswick bowling center off County Road 46, this location should not be utilized for a sprawling Walmart store. (Obviously itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s too late, but the bowling center probably shouldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been built in the area near County Road 70 and I-35, as it fits more with the current dining and entertainment theme of the theater and Harryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s restaurant). Since Lakeville supposedly beat out Farmington for this wonderful opportunity to have Walmart set up shop here, wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t it make more sense to build it somewhere along the Cedar Avenue corridor? On top of this it looks like

Walmart is also going to build another megastore in Burnsville on I-35 just 10 miles down the road. Do we really need two Walmarts that close to each other? What a wonderful introduction to Lakeville as visitors drive up I-35 from the south. The entrance to Lakeville will feature a Walmart on one side and a truck stop on the other. What a great way to showcase our community. I really hope the city will reconsider the placement of this store. Regardless, I plan to never set foot in it, as I will continue to frequent Target, a Minnesota-based company that has contributed greatly to the state for many years. TOM ANDREWS Lakeville

Draconian budget cuts need to stop To the editor: Last week, state Sen. Dave Thompson, R-Lakeville, posted this comment on his Facebook account: â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am amazed how the myth lives on that Republicans are the protectors of corporate America, while Democrats try to stop corporate excesses and look out for the little guy.â&#x20AC;? Is Sen. Thompson being serious? He and the Republicans keep voting to take away funding for program after program that benefit working people, people with disabilities, kids and Minnesotaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seniors, and they refuse to increase taxes on the richest 5 percent of Minnesotans like Gov. Mark Dayton wants to do. And he says it is a myth

that Republicans protect the rich and Democrats watch out for the little guy? Give me a break! When are people going to wake up and realize that Republicans keep supporting draconian bill after draconian bill? It has got to change. Republicans keep offering these piecemeal budget fixes: cutting Meals on Wheels, cutting transit funding, cutting education, cutting, cutting, cutting â&#x20AC;&#x201C; with no big plan to fix the budget. Dayton has put out a budget bill. Thompson and Republicans keep trying this piecemeal budget fix approach â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m assuming because they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a big plan. It seems to me the thing Republicans should do is disagree with the governor, put out their own budget plan and start working from there. But I guess Republicans think little cuts here and there to vulnerable Minnesotans are easier for us to digest than for Republicans to digest the richest Minnesotans paying their fair share. So we cut Meals on Wheels â&#x20AC;Ś To what extent are Republicans willing to go to protect the rich at our expense?

the way he acts and everything about him so great that she wishes he was the president scares me to death. He is a person who admits to smoking cocaine, physically abuses women and videotaped his children being taken from his house by child protection workers for the whole world to see. Perhaps Ms. Henderson should spend less time social networking and more time in the real world. Does Hitler ring a bell? He didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t conform to the social norms, either. He got a whole country behind him and killed 8 mil-

lion innocent people. He was just doing his own thing and was very comfortable doing it. It scares me that this younger generation holds these celebrities in such high regard. What has Sheen contributed to society that qualifies him to run our country? If you want to admire someone, how about all the men and women who leave their families to fight the crazy dictators of the world; they too are just doing their own thing. Do you want to follow them, too? I am sorry, but I am not

so proud of this hometown girl. I can only wonder what she is learning in that public relations class at the U of M. It is OK for Ms. Henderson to be herself, and to think outside the box, but she should be careful about whom she chooses to follow. People thought Jim Jones was great, too, and look what happened to them. Harsh, yes, but perhaps Ms. Henderson should think before she speaks next time. JULIE PAUR Lakeville

The Farmington girls have a number of all-around athletes who will lead the way in the sprints, relays and throwing events this year, including Jordan Bridges, Erin Hickey, Alyssa Parco, Nadia Lorencz and Jessica Arey. Several girls have state tournament experience. Parco was seventh in the 300-meter hurdles at state last year and Norencz was 17th in the long jump. Hickey, Kiminski and Parco were part of the 4x200 relay that finished seventh in state last year. Hickey was about a foot away from qualifying for state in the long jump They would all like another shot. “We look to be deep on the track and in some of our field events with many new and young athletes who are hungry and challenging for spots in events,” head coach Thomas Hart said. “Our

There are a few events where the Tigers will trot out inexperienced underclassmen, particularly field events. “But we have great kids who will give us their best,” Hart said. “We hope to be near the top and challenge at every meet we attend.”

Farmington’s Erin Hickey prepares to hand off the baton during the Class AA state meet last June.

It will be tough to replace the points Logan Hussung, who won the state discus title, gave the Tigers last season. “We lost a good group of seniors that were talented and led the team well,” coach Brian Helmstetter said.

Several other athletes has since graduated, leaving Farmington with a bit of a rebuilding project, but the seniors are up to it. “We have many questions right now, but a lot of young

They’ll join fellow seniors Tyler Becket, Justice Detzel, Zach Wyatt and CJ Record on the track and field this spring. A few younger athletes such as Jake Rudeen and Tyler Lerbakken will help fill the roster out. “When the young talent will step into their roles on varsity, the question isn’t if they step up, it is when and how many of them will step up,” Helmstetter said.

Distance and throwing a definite plus for Panthers by Andy Rogers THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

The Lakeville North girls track team has fielded several top distance runners and throwers through the years. In fact, alumnae still hold the Minnesota records in the 1600- and 3200-meter runs (both Elizabeth Yetzer in 2005) as well as the shot put (Liz Podominick in 2002). So it’s no surprise the strengths of the 2011 version of the Panthers are the distance and throwing events. Emma Johnson and Taylor Perkins run the 1600 and 3200 faster than most, while Michelle Ferguson hopes to lap a few girls in the middle distance events. Emma Erickson and Jenny Svobodny were all-state honorees last year in the discus and shot put, respectively. McKenzie Hoelmenn rounds out a potent discus and shot put lineup. But there are several other events that feature Panthers looking for some high marks. The sprint lineup is locked and loaded with Angie Anyaogu, Rachel Banham and Nicole Naajtes,

who were part of the fifthplace 4x100 relay last year at state. Panthers should also get a few points from their jumpers. Max Leake, Kalyn Caterina and Katie Dillie are all capable of jumping more than five feet high. A few newcomers have turned some heads already in the indoor competition, particularly in the middle distance and hurdling events, including Saiji Lowery, Michaela Prechuck and Alexa Trakalo. “We have some talented young athletes that will complement our veteran crew,” head coach Todd Endersbe said. “The young athletes need to be competitive when called upon.” The Panthers will host the Lakeville North Mega Meet on April 15 where 15 schools are scheduled to attend.

ning crews around. “With Sam Bach, Ben Saxton and Joey Brenner, they could prove to be tough this spring,” Endersbe said.

Jeffery Quinlan is the team’s top sprinter and Stuart Joyce plans to continue hopping hurdles for North. Joyce was sixth last year in the 300 intermediate hurdles in Section 1AA in just his first year of track In the field department, Jake Weber leads the way as one of the top throwers in the conference.

Ever since the school opened, the Lakeville South track and field teams have been competitive and 2011 won’t be any different. With another army of distance runners, high jumpers, hurdlers and throwers, the girls track and field team is looking like another contender. “If the girls on our team can stay healthy, our team has the potential to have a very successful season,” head coach Andrew Hilliard said. Cougar fans are jumping with excitement to see what happens this year in the field events. “We’re lucky to have one of the strongest high jumping groups in the state,” Hilliard said. “Morgan Pieri, Shaina Burns, Calyssa Johnson, and Caraline Slattery all cleared 5 feet, 2

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 s illegal to request any money before delivering its service.

Search/from 1A Brenda Wendlandt, will likely review them in a private meeting, then forward the most promising ones to other council members. Although the council members have not had a chance to formally discuss traits they will value in a new administrator, Larson

said he wants to find an experienced, high-energy person with a track record of economic development. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want someone thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be bouncing off the walls a little bit. â&#x20AC;Ś I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want someone whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just going to be sitting back in their chair,â&#x20AC;? Larson said. At the end of Mondayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s short council meeting, Lar-

son and Council Member Jason Bartholomay publicly thanked Herlofsky for his approximately five years of service to the city and noted several of his accomplishments. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was a really big part in stabilizing the city. When he came â&#x20AC;Ś we were in the midst of a fight with the school board, and it seemed

like weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d go through administrators about once a year or even more often than that,â&#x20AC;? Larson said. Bartholomay complimented him as well, adding, â&#x20AC;&#x153;For the residents, contrary to what youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re reading in the papers, our city isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t going to fall apart. I think everything is going to work out fine.â&#x20AC;?

He described Herlofsky as a â&#x20AC;&#x153;nice and wonderful person.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think he wants to take some time and enjoy life a little bit. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worked very hard for a lot of years,â&#x20AC;? he said. Council Member Christy Jo Fogarty did not make any comment and Council Members Julie May and

9A

Terry Donnelly were not present. Herlofsky, 66, did not respond to the comments, but warned residents their tap water may act differently because the city is conducting hydrant flushing. Laura Adelmann is at news. thisweek@ecm-inc.com.

April 8, 2011 THISWEEK

Little/from 1A lowing an elected official to donate to specific city services is akin to the type of â&#x20AC;&#x153;pork barrelâ&#x20AC;? spending one would see in Washington, D.C. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He has the opportunity to donate to the general fund,â&#x20AC;? Bellows said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but there canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be strings attached to it.â&#x20AC;? Ratzlaff LaBeau had a similar justification for opposing the donation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an incredibly generous thing,â&#x20AC;? she told Little at the meeting, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but I do not want to support establishing the giving of dollars and dictating where it goes.â&#x20AC;? Council Member Kerrin Swecker, along with Laurie Rieb, voted to accept the donation.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not excited about funding the position,â&#x20AC;? Swecker said at the meeting, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but I have a hard time not taking a donation.â&#x20AC;? She said she did not see it setting a precedent. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think a lot of people will be running forward, funding positions,â&#x20AC;? she said. Little has said he wanted to earmark the money because there is no guarantee the money would find its way to the police position from the general fund.

More than a donation Bellows said the debate over the donation obscures a more important matter: That amid an economic and political climate that is centered on reining in spend-

ing, the donation actually increases expenditures. Littleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s donation would not cover the total cost of the position for the five months of 2011 that would be required. The city would need to cover more than $23,000 of the total expense. Discussions originally centered on using liquor funds for that amount, but most council members and the City staff opposed paying for full-time personnel from that fund. So, because the bulk of the police records tech funding would come from the general fund, that amount would reduce the nearly $160,000 in cuts the council already made to the 2011 budget. Bellows said the council

has made modest cuts, at best, and so adding spending to the general fund is not keeping with the spirit of the times. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The city administrator (Steve Mielke), at the direction of the previous council, had instructed all department heads that there would be no new positions hired in 2011,â&#x20AC;? Bellows said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That is because of the budget constraints.â&#x20AC;? When the council voted in favor of those cuts at its March 21 meeting, it also voted to budget for a new position. â&#x20AC;&#x153;By including it in the budget, they (council members) have in essence funded the position,â&#x20AC;? Mielke said. So does the donation rejection mean the city will

fund the position entirely? Not exactly. The council will discuss the next step regarding the position at its next work session later this month. The preliminary 2012 budget included the records tech position, but Littleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s donation would have allowed for a few extra months of transcription relief for patrol officers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t approved funding for the position because it included Mattâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s donation,â&#x20AC;? Bellows said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We no longer have that, so we have to go back and revisit the entire idea of even bringing on the position.â&#x20AC;?

Policing strategies

policy contributions since his swearing-in earlier this year â&#x20AC;&#x201C; centered on bolstering and supporting public safety in Lakeville. He has said that the police records tech position would keep the police on the streets, instead of behind a desk doing reports. The City Council eliminated the position in 2008 as part of a round of budget cuts. Police Chief Thomas Vonhof has requested the reinstatement of the position, Bellows said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to have a discussion on that,â&#x20AC;? Bellows said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think there might be technological solutions that need to be considered.â&#x20AC;?

Thisweekend Dancers present a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Journey in Motionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Performances set April 13, 14 at the Burnsville PAC by Andrew Miller THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

Dance students at Envision Academy of the Arts are bringing what theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve learned, and what theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve created, out of the studio and onto the main stage of the Burnsville Performing Arts Center this month. The Burnsville arts magnet will present â&#x20AC;&#x153;Journey in Motionâ&#x20AC;? April 13-14. The showâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s title is loaded with meaning for students and staff at the fledgling arts academy in the Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School District, said Envision dance director Jill Patterson. The academy, which opened last school year, enables students to take music, dance and theater classes at the Performing Arts Center and all other courses at Burnsville High School.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s called â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Journey in Motionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; because this school is on a journey of becoming what we want it to be, and the students are on a journey of becoming preprofessional dancers,â&#x20AC;? Patterson said. The performances will feature student works created in Choreography and Improvisation class, and a piece set to music written by Envisionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s orchestra students. Another dance on the bill at â&#x20AC;&#x153;Journey in Motionâ&#x20AC;? is titled â&#x20AC;&#x153;Big Noise,â&#x20AC;? which was choreographed by Twin Cities-based professional dance company Eclectic Edge Ensemble, whose members worked with Envision students this past month through a Metropolitan Regional Arts Council grant. Dancers from the Youth Dance Ensemble of

Burnsville are also featured. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Journey in Motionâ&#x20AC;? is one of several performance opportunities this year for Envisionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dance students. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done one other show on the Burnsville PAC main stage, have held dance demos for students at Gideon Pond and Rahn elementary schools, and are collaborating with Ballet Royale Minnesota for a production of â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Wizard of Ozâ&#x20AC;? in May. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They invited us to be the flying monkeys,â&#x20AC;? said Patterson. Tickets for â&#x20AC;&#x153;Journey in Motion,â&#x20AC;? which starts at 7 p.m. both nights and is open to the public, are $8 for adults and $5 for students.

THISWEEK April 8, 2011

in Red Wing, the men would gather to discuss trains and even assemble an elaborate model train setup to entertain kids during Christmas, Oelkers said. Why are two airline guys interested in trains? Christensenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s father was a train engineer, Oelkers said, and Oelkers himself got interested in trains as his grandson developed an affinity for them. Christensen was also an excellent cook, Oelkers said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;His deck kind of faced our house. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be out there all the time with that grill going,â&#x20AC;? Oelkers said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was persecution living next to him. His last day The food smelled so good.â&#x20AC;? Oelkers said he and ChrisErickson first met Christensen were supposed to have tensen in 1989, when he starttheir usual Tuesday breakfast. ed his job as Lakevilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s city â&#x20AC;&#x153;He called me at 7:30, administrator. which was our normal â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;conâ&#x20AC;&#x153;His greatest strength was Cedar /from 1A

Still moving Krebsbach said the biggest challenge for the County is that it must conduct all this roadwork with traffic still moving on Cedar. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need to keep traffic moving and traffic signals operating at all times,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Intersections, especially with signals, are very challenging.â&#x20AC;? Shutting down the road entirely is not an option. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s too much volume and too many business accesses to close the road down,â&#x20AC;? he said. The County has not demarcated any official detours or suggested any alternate

routes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve tried to be very forthcoming about (informing people about) construction,â&#x20AC;? Krebsbach said, noting signs have been up for weeks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It will take people a week or two to learn a route that works best for them.â&#x20AC;?

BRT, more than a bus BRT differs from standard or express bus routes in that special buses travel along dedicated rights-of-way, akin to a light rail. This allows for quicker transit times. Also like light rail, BRT features regular but shorter intervals of buses. Just show up and ride. The buses are equipped with a device that allows

nectingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; time,â&#x20AC;? Oelkers said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He said he couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make it because he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel good.â&#x20AC;? But something was not right, Oelkers said, and Mary Christensen, Barryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wife, knew it. So she called Oelkers to ask for his wife, Judy, who was a retired nurse. Christensen was lightheaded and said he was going to faint. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I went over to catch him,â&#x20AC;? Oelkers said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;His color was changing. It was obvious things were crashing.â&#x20AC;? Thinking back on the years he has known Christensen, Erickson had high-praise for his friendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s character and integrity. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There was not a single day in our time together that I even questioned anything that he did,â&#x20AC;? Erickson said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;because I knew everything he would do would be in the best interest of the community.â&#x20AC;? Christensen is preceded

in death by his parents. He is survived by his loving wife of 43 years, Mary (Grundman) Christensen; children, Christina (Jim) Puncochar and Melissa (Bret) Lorenson; grandchildren, Eric, Alex and Lauren Puncochar, Jake and Anna Lorenson; brother, Dean (Marcia) Christensen. Also by many loving relatives and friends. Mass of Christian Burial is at 1:30 p.m. on Saturday April 9, at Church of the Risen Savior, 1501 Co. Rd. 42, Burnsville, with visitation from 4-8 p.m. Friday, April 8, at White Funeral Home, 20134 Kenwood Trail, and one hour prior to Mass at church. Interment will be at All Saints Cemetery, Lakeville. In lieu of flowers, memorials preferred.

I felt the light of heaven it was shining down on me, I heard His voice, He called my name â&#x20AC;&#x153;my child, come follow Me:â&#x20AC;? There is no pain, there is no hurt nor sadness anywhere, In heaven there is joy and love and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be waiting there: For on the day I left this earth I felt your many tears, And now I watch you from above and keep you very near; It hurts to be apart from me, but be patient for the day, When we meet again in love and peace when you too come this way.
