Longtime Lakeville administrator to retire this year Terry Lind served as teacher, principal at several schools in district since 1968 by Aaron Vehling THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

On a sunny day recently, the venerable Lake Marion sparkled with delicate reflectivity as a comforting breeze shot over its surface and across the street toward Lakeview Elementary School. As the school year comes to a close, Lakeview’s students showed tangible excitement about their upcoming summer vacation. Teachers are poised to tie up loose ends and spend some precious remaining days with the energetic youths who so define their lives. But amid that hustle and bustle, a bit of sadness punctuates: Terry Lind, principal of Lakeview and former leader of several other elementary schools in the district, is retiring after 43 years in Lakeville. “I work with a lot of great people here,” Lind

said. “They’re excellent teachers and staff.” Lind’s influence as a teacher and a principal stretches generations. “I have the grandchildren of kids I’d had when I was a teacher,” he said. “I know probably 20 percent of the parents here (at Lakeview) were students of mine 20 years ago.”

An interrupted start The Rochester-raised Lind first stepped foot in Lakeville in 1968. To say it was a different city – and school district – back then is no hyperbole. “When I started, there were only three buildings,” Lind said. “There was half of JFK Elementary, Orchard Lake Elementary and the junior-senior high school, now known as McGuire Middle School.” That tight-knit environment meant Lind had “every kid in seventh grade, so

Farmington’s Fogarty helps bridge the gap to dental care for the poor Fogarty new graduate in state’s first class of dental therapists by Laura Adelmann THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

Farmington Boy Scouts and their leaders saluted the flag as several Farmington High School band members, including senior Bryan Hyde-Olson, played “Taps.”

Farmington City Council Member Christy Jo Fogarty needed political action before she could pursue her professional ambitions and fulfill her desire to help poor children receive dental care. Fogarty, a dental hygienist, said she grew concerned when she consistently saw the poor and uninsured delay dental care because they were unable to afford it. In most cases, pain would eventually force them into a dentist’s chair, but the severity of the problem and financial constraints reduced their options to pulling the tooth. “Ultimately, that is not good dental health. I have a desire to help those people get basic dental care,” Fogarty said. She was also interested in growing professionally, but as a City Council member, active volunteer, wife and

Potential state government shutdown leads to temporary borrowing by Aaron Vehling THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

Budget battles at the Capitol are spilling over into the Lakeville school district. “The state is shorting us on property taxes,” Mark Klett, director of business services, told the school board at a recent meeting. Combine that with the potential for a government shutdown, and what exists is a caustic concoction for those who have to run a school district. Typically, Klett said, the state distributes money from property taxes to the school districts in May and into June. Recent years, however, have been different. In order to balance the state books, the state has withheld the money until July and August. But a shutdown would come at the exact time the deficits from that arrangement would occur. The result is that the district needs to open up a line of credit to cover that temporary shortfall and also sell

some aid anticipation certificates to cover longer-term scenarios. For the line of credit, the needs are very temporary, Klett said. The period of borrowing would be about seven to 10 days. “It could be we need that money for a short period of time to pay bills on June 28 and payroll on June 30,” Klett said. “This is new territory for us.” If the state government does close its doors on June 30, Klett said, the line of credit could be used to pay district employees who receive paychecks over 12 months (and thus June), which most opt to do. Under the terms of the temporary line of credit, the advance cannot exceed 95 percent of the district’s average operating expenditures per month in the previous fiscal year (or about $8.8 million). In addition, the loan has to be repaid within 45 days of its advancement with an interest rate not to exceed 2.95 percent. In the broader picture, the district will also sell $9 million in general obligation aid anticipation certificates

of indebtedness on June 14. This would serve the district’s cash flow needs for the remaining deficit period should a state shutdown occur. The district would receive the money on July 7, repay any of the short-term borrowing it had to do with the line of credit and use the balance for cashflow needs, Klett said. The district gets to use the money for 14 months, well into next school year. But when the state pays back what it borrowed from the schools, the aid anticipation can then be paid back, Klett said in a recent interview. At the meeting, the school board and administrators were frustrated about the prospect of having to borrow money to cover what they are owed; but the apparent inevitability of legislative dysfunction seems to have yielded some lamentations. “This is a position I don’t like being in,” Board Member Kathy Lewis said. “This is something of concern to me.” Aaron Vehling is at aaron. vehling@ecm-inc.com.

John Elder, 64, along with a team of riders will conclude the May 26-June 9 Christian Elder Memorial 900-mile bike ride, which has a goal to raise $30,000 for Kids ’n Kinship, with a carnival-like celebration from 11 a.m. to noon June 11 at Merchants Bank, 7300 147th St. W., Apple Valley. The event includes entertainment, appearances by local dignitaries and plenty of refreshments. This is the sixth consecutive year Elder has organized the ride, which trails like a pinwheel through Iowa, stopping in Des Moines, Waterloo, Cedar Rapids and Clinton. “Kids ’n Kinship is such a wonderful, worthwhile organization,� Elder said. “It makes our pedaling easier knowing that we are doing something that will directly benefit the children in our own communities.� Kids ’n Kinship Director Jan Belmore said the money raised by the ride is critical to continue programming. It was started in response to the organization losing a major source of funding at the time. The 39-year-old local nonprofit matches youths ages 5-16 with volunteer mentors who make a oneyear commitment to the program, which serves Apple Valley, Burnsville, Eagan, Farmington, Lakeville and Rosemount. Currently, 65 youths are on the waiting list for mentors. The ride is named in honor of John and wife Sherry’s son who died unexpectedly in 2007. To donate, go online to www.CEM900.com and click Donate Now. The website includes a Road Diary and a progress tracker on Facebook. Donations may be sent by mail to Kids ’n Kinship, 14870 Granada Ave. No. 127, Apple Valley, MN 55124. Checks should be made payable to “Charity Ride for Kids ’n Kinship.� For more information, go online to www.kidsnkinship.org.

Kids ’n Kinship pair meet milestones – graduation from mentorship program and high school Dante Lundstrom and John Elder are familiar with bumpy roads. Lundstrom, a Rosemount High School senior, and Elder, a Bloomington man currently trekking 900 miles on his bicycle to raise money for Apple Valleybased Kids ’n Kinship, have shared a unique bond these past six years. Kids ’n Kinship paired the two when Lundstrom was 12 years old and his mother, LaDawn Lundstrom, thought her son could benefit from having an adult male role model in his life. “I couldn’t have asked for a better mentor than John,� Dante Lundstrom said last week. As Lundstrom has turned 18 and is preparing for graduation day on Saturday, the official weekly Kids ’n Kinship meetings with his mentor have ended, but the two remain close friends. The time they have spent together helped Lundstrom stay positive when times were tough. “He’s been there,� Lundstrom said of Elder. “I went through a lot in the last few years.

At a special meeting set for 7 a.m. Friday, the Farmington School Board is expected to award a construction contract for previously approved remodeling work at Dodge Middle School. The meeting was held after this issue of Thisweek went to press, but District Finance Director Jeff Priess recommended the contract be awarded to the low bidder on the project, Ebert Construction, with a base bid of $498,400. Seven other bids were received for the work, ranging in price from $524,465 to $551,400. The work will involve remodeling an administrative office area and security upgrades. Those security upgrades are an important aspect of the project, said Jim Skelly, district communications and marketing coordinator. “It is creating a more secure entry for the building,� Skelly said. “Currently, the office staff in there can’t see from their desks when people come in. So, right now, you can just walk into that building, and people have to move away from their desks to see where you went.� Funding for the project is to be derived from $18.5 million left from a bond referendum, approved by voters for, among other things, construction of a sixth elementary school in the district. According to district information distributed at the time, the school was expected to serve 750 students. However, since then, development and housing growth stagnated and the Farmington School Board has determined the project is not needed. Instead, the board directed the funds to be utilized for maintenance of buildings and technology upgrades in the district.

It makes a good bio for someone who aspires to become the leader of a country where, we are proud of saying, even a poor kid can become president.

And therein lies the big question I have about the guy. How did he get from there to where he is? How did a poor, Polish, Catholic kid become a conservative, evangelical Christian champion of cutting the taxes that pay for services so important to those living in the circumstances Pawlenty escaped? I know people change. But I find it curious that a guy can change that much. I grew up in circumstances not that different from those of our former governor. We lived in the blue-collar town of Bay City, Mich., where my father changed tires and oil on trucks for a small freight hauler. My five siblings and I were raised Catholic because my Polish mother took charge of things spiritual, and

my German-Lutheran father brought home the bacon. Actually, he was able to save on bacon by raising vegetables, chickens and rabbits on our four acres just outside of town. Harold Werner was proud of the money he saved by feeding his family home-grown produce, chicken and, yes, rabbit prepared a dozen different ways by Mom. “Some weeks, all we have to buy is milk and day-old bread,� he would boast to relatives who complained about their grocery bills. We were poor, but, as people raised similarly like to say, we didn’t know we were poor. I didn’t know how poor we were until the day I got a copy of my father’s W-2 so I could apply for a college loan. I’ll never get over the shock of learning

that my father raised six kids on $7,000 a year. One of my father’s proudest days was when he attended my commencement ceremony at Michigan State University. I, like our former governor, was the first member of my family to earn a college degree. Circumstances like those shaped me and the way I look at life. Despite recurring doubts and questions, I’ve remained Catholic, and I still head for northeast Minneapolis to get my Polish sausage for Christmas and Easter. (“Holy rope,� my dad called it.) Having drifted over the years into management jobs and entrepreneurial ventures, I’ve seen threats to business from toopowerful unions and zealous government regulators.

But there are some aspects of who I was that will always be. The most significant is the empathy I feel for those who haven’t escaped poverty, as Gov. Pawlenty and I have. And despite his tough talk about cutting government services so important to those most vulnerable, I hope our former governor will think about where he came from and how privileged he is to be where he stands today. In other words, I hope there is still some of that South St. Paul boy in the man from Eagan. Larry Werner is editor and general manager of the Dakota County Tribune and Thisweek Newspapers.

Letters Camaraderie, competence To the editor: There seems to be room for all in a positive argument. We should politely agree, recognize competence, yet limit personal contentiousness. In the matter of a potential new setting for the Lakeville Senior Center and the Lakeville Historical Society to the city-owned, unoccupied police station, the voice of the contentious seems to be coming through. Some city council members have chosen to become “penny-wise and poundfoolish.� They don’t seem to recognize the history of Lakeville’s development. They see only their own agenda of today. Having lived, observed and participated for over 35 years in Lakeville, I sense that ours has become a city of magnificent parks, schools, athletic associations and city services because we have had competent elected leaders who shared a purpose.

A marvelous city staff researched and led us to the very best of our nation. The many elected leaders recognized the diversity of population and they represented all the people. Their personal agendas were limited. As one of more than 150 seniors at an information meeting last week at the Lakeville Area Arts Center, the audience had a felt need to be recognized as a part of the general population. The city is what it is today thanks to the camaraderie, mutuality and consistent broad support for programs by these people. Through the years, referendums were passed and taxes paid for roads, police, fire services, schools and parks. In contrast to the hundreds of millions of dollars spent over the years on buildings and projects in Lakeville, it is time to cease the nit-picking of the $300,000 cost for the centers’ relocation and proceed with camaraderie, recognition of the value of our extremely competent city staff and address a common interest. Let us move ahead

together to build our city, with an eye out for those who brought us thus far. Please join me in letting council members know that you wish for the center to move forward. We are today, thanks to camaraderie, competence, mutuality and consistent broad support a city of concern – a city of hope and recognition for all age groups. Thank you for your support. KENT O. STEVER Lakeville

Get the facts straight To the editor: It pains me to no end to have your board (ECM editorial, May 27) outright lie to your readers as to what the state budget proposal is. It is actually $2 billion more than the last budget. First of all, it is no surprise that you take the position that you do. It is always contraire to what the truth actually is.

poll take the governor’s side. They only know what they are told by a very slanted newspaper, which I might suggest is similar to your newspaper. The facts are this. The overall tax rates are the same as 2010. While it has long been a part of the left’s strategy to play “class warfare,� the idea of pitting all Minnesotans against the wealthy among us is truly a socialist agenda. Something that has no place in America. 1. K-12 actually increases funding by $465 million over the previous budget. 2. Health and human services actually have an 8 percent increase. 3. Higher education has $2.5 billion coverage. It caps tuition, increases funding for need-based grants, protecting work study programs, increasing funding for needbased state grants, protects work study programs, and holds child care assistance grants harmless. 4. Transportation. Actually appropriates $4.54 billion for roads and public safety, and transit. Services to the elderly and disabled have been protected, and greater Minnesota will actually receive a slight increase. This budget requires the Met Council to use their reserves for bus operations and fund transfer authority, as required by the 2009 Legislature. It also increases local road funding by $120 million. Rather than report the Democrat agenda, it would be nice to truly have the news reported accurately.

systems. At 9:15 a.m. on that day, my father and brother were traveling in a small car which was broadsided by a 30-foot freight truck. The truck was going 55 mph through a stop sign. In the blink of an eye, my family members were killed. Through Scott County I learned that: The truck driver was charged with careless driving, which is a misdemeanor, the truck driver had no illegal drugs in his system but had prescription drug(s) in his system, which is not illegal, and it’s the same sentence for killing two people as one, if they’re in the same car. Minnesota state law sentencing for careless driving is a maximum of 90 days in jail and/or a $1,000 fine no matter how many people are killed in the one car. I wonder why the sentence isn’t greater if more than one person dies? The truck driver’s court hearing, trial and sentencing took place three days before the one-year anniversary of their deaths. The truck driver was sentenced to: 15 days out of the 90-day maximum time in jail, 15 days of sentence to serve, he got one year of probation, his driver’s license was revoked for a short time and he received a fine of $300 with an $80 surcharge out of the maximum fine of $1,000. Recently I’ve seen on television and in the newspaper stories about pedestrians and bicyclists being killed by vehicles. The state might also charge those vehicle drivers with careless driving. Judges and attorneys remind me that MIKE STEIN the drivers do not set out that Lakeville day to kill someone, it was an accident. I regularly go through the intersection where my father To the editor: and brother were killed.

Some letter writers are just pushing agendas To the editor: Regarding the newspaper’s “space dilemma� – Mark Bellile really put his finger on this one and as a teacher, adjunct professor and businessman I concur with all of his points. As for those letters by Emily Samsel and Veronica Walter, “they just don’t get it� with two extremely long letters which show their ignorance of the education problem while most of the rest of us had predicted years ago the dilemma we now face. I have invited everyone in this area to come to my office, view my credentials and have a solid discussion of what we need to do to run a more efficient educational system, which has become a top priority in many states and cities. Nobody shows up or even phones, so I am left with the impression a lot of letter writers are just pushing agendas. They really aren’t looking for solutions. FRANKLIN WICKER Lakeville

nese did not have the cache it does now among those studying foreign languages. So when Lind would take his wife to Chinese restaurants, he said, he would try to impress her by ordering in the native tongue. “I’d try to order,� he said with a laugh, “but they spoke Cantonese (the version of Chinese they speak in Hong Kong and southern China).�

PCs and principals In the early 1980s, as personal computing technology became more ubiquitous, Lind studied for his media specialist licensure. He would now be able to stay on the forefront of that technology in the district’s libraries. “I wanted to get my career going and license in that area,� he said. In 1984, he went to Orchard Lake Elementary to run its library. “Computers were so simple then,� Lind said. “You could basically play Pong on them. It was unbelievable – the green screens.� Technology improved and soon library catalogs and educational programming such as Oregon Trail came to rule the day. While he enjoyed his position, an inquiry from an inspirational principal instilled in Lind the will to lead. In the late 80s, while Lind was at Orchard Lake, then-principal Bob Indihar approached him and

           

  

       

asked him if he had ever considered becoming an administrator. “I said, ‘Oh yeah.’ He had to leave Orchard Lake to open up Crystal Lake Elementary and so I took over for him,� Lind said. The late Indihar, a beloved member of the district, was a huge influence on him, Lind said. That kicked off a passion. Lind acquired a principal licensure. At that point, the Lakeville school district was expanding rapidly, opening up a new elementary school every couple years. Lind became the district’s de facto roving principal. Lind credits his early experience as a teacher to his success as a principal. “All that experience working with people paid off,� he said. In 1990, Lind opened Lake Marion Elementary. In 1992, he headed up Christina Huddleston Elementary while the regular principal for that school opened up Cherry View Elementary. By 1994, he started landing gigs with more roots. That year he became principal of JFK Elementary. He came to Lakeview in 1999. So what does it mean to be in a district for four decades and lead several elementary schools? “I know the district well,� Lind said, adding that he has a lot of experience with the different communities all over Lakeville.

Reections and plans Lind has enjoyed the principalship immensely, but he sometimes does miss being a teacher. “I miss the closeness I developed with the kids,â€? he said. “I had only 150 kids or so, but now have 600.â€? He is now not able to get to know each student as well, “but I still get to know them somewhat.â€? But what he enjoys about his leadership role is the ability to enact change and help formulate policy. “One of the benefits is working with the staff to make education better for kids,â€? Lind said. “As long as you show best practices and research, you can go ahead with it.â€? The biggest challenge has been maintaining services the community is accustomed to during a period of diminishing funding, he said. “We have a staff that’s very innovative,â€? Lind said, “so we’re actually doing more with less.â€? In retirement, Lind has a slew of plans, including restoring Ham radios, spending time at his cabin on Woman Lake north of Brainerd and maintaining a presence in the community. “I’m going to do all those projects I haven’t done for years and years,â€? Lind said, adding that he will miss Lakeview. “Lakeview is a little community of its own.â€? Aaron Vehling is at aaron.vehling@ecm-inc.com and www. facebook.com/thisweeklive.

A Lakeville man faces a felony terroristic threats charge after his alleged involvement in an altercation at the home of his former girlfriend. According to the criminal complaint, Michael Allan Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Connor, 22, visited the residence of his former girlfriend and mother to his children. When he encountered another man in the house he allegedly threatened him with a knife, ordering him with profane words to leave the premises. According to the complaint: On March 27, a woman awoke to hear her ex-boyfriend yelling at her. They are no longer together and so the noise surprised her. Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Connor called her a â&#x20AC;&#x153;slutâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;whoreâ&#x20AC;? and

then chased the womanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s current boyfriend out the door. She told Lakeville police officers that Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Connor threw a soda-filled glass at her during the dispute. Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Connor would visit the house occasionally to visit their children. The woman told police she believed Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Connor was able to access her home because the week prior she had given him a garage door opener, though he never returned it. When the woman went to the garage to call 911, Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Connor met her there and pushed her into a chair. She dropped the phone, so the 911 operator had to call her back. She continued talking with the operator as Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Connor ran to a car driven by his grandfather. Police called the current

Thisweekend Eagan Market Fest kicks off June 8 Weekly event on Wednesdays at Central Park offers food, music, family fun by Andrew Miller THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

Eagan Market Fest returns this summer with an expanded schedule, additional concessions and a new pavilion. The weekly, city of Eagan-run event thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s part farmersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; market and part community festival will kick off its fifth season from 4 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, June 8, at the Eagan Festival Grounds at Central Park, 1501 Central Parkway. Each Wednesday throughout the summer, fest-goers can select from an array of fresh fruit, vegetables and produce, purchase dinner from one of three concession vendors and enjoy live music at the Eagan Rotary Band Shell. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wednesday nights at Central Park are a perfect night to get outdoors, take a walk and enjoy the food and entertainment at Market Fest,â&#x20AC;? said Juli Seydell

Johnson, Eagan Parks and Recreation director. In addition to food items, the event features a host of artisan products such as jewelry, woodcrafts and garden art. Each week also features art activities for kids sponsored by the Eagan Art House, as well as an outdoor games area for families with a beanbag toss, sack races and parachutes. To get kids into the spirit of the weekly concerts at the Eagan Rotary Band Shell, hula hoops and inflatable guitars â&#x20AC;&#x201C; for exuberant air-guitar theatrics â&#x20AC;&#x201C; will be provided. Theme nights return to this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s festival, including Classic Car Show & Oldies Music Night on June 22, which will feature Elvis tribute artist Art Kistler; Family Night on July 6 with a teen battle of the bands and concert by family act the Okee Dokee Brothers; and

Health and Wellness Night on July 27. A new promotion this year is Bike to the Market â&#x20AC;&#x201C; people who ride their bikes to Market Fest on June 8, 15, 22 or 29 will receive a $5 voucher good for purchasing produce at the event. The festival has seen continued growth since its inception a half decade ago when it had about a dozen regular vendors and drew about 3,000 people over the course of the summer. Organizers estimated last summerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s overall attendance at 28,000, and this summer more than 60 vendors registered. With food vendors, the focus is on local, said Kerry Phillips, coordinator of Eagan Market Fest â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a producersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; market,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everything is locally grown and produced, and all of our farms are local farms.â&#x20AC;? Opening night June 8

will include a bag giveaway at 4 p.m., seedlings and childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s book giveaways at 6:30 p.m., and an Arbor Day celebration and community planting from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Admission to Eagan Market Fest is free. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s festival runs June 8 to Sept. 28 for a total of 17 days â&#x20AC;&#x201C; five more than last year. The festival starts the summer season with some good karma â&#x20AC;&#x201C; at the end of last season it was listed as one of Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Favorite Farmers Markets by American Farmland Trust. Festgoers can help put Eagan Market Fest back on that list this year by voting at www.farmland.org/vote. More information is at www.cityofeagan.com/marketfest. Photo submitted

means a lot, especially when you have had someone walk out on you.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s amazing what a mentor can do in a young personâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life and, in turn, what the young person can do for you,â&#x20AC;? Elder said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need a lot of experience to have a significant impact on a young personâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life.â&#x20AC;? While Elder has imparted some of lifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lessons to Lundstrom, much of their time together is about having fun. The two have shared countless hours on the racquetball court, boating around area lakes, playing cribbage and engaging in friendly competitions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In racquetball, he has shown me that the sport is as much about skill as it is athletics,â&#x20AC;? Lundstrom said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am starting to catch up to him. We pretty much break about even.â&#x20AC;? Lundstrom has proven himself a quick learner when it comes to other games. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He taught me how to play cribbage,â&#x20AC;? Lundstrom said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now sometimes I school him, or he will school me.â&#x20AC;? One activity that Lundstrom wants no part of is Elderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bicycling obsession. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I once went on a 40mile bike ride with him,â&#x20AC;? Lundstrom said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That was

bad.â&#x20AC;? Lundstrom says Elder rides about 60 miles a day in training for the Christian Elder Memorial 900 from May 26 to June 11 (see sidebar). â&#x20AC;&#x153;John is a role model not just to a youth, but also to other role models,â&#x20AC;? Kids â&#x20AC;&#x2122;n Kinship Director Jan Belmore said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The mentors in our program admire him; people in the community see him as someone who has taken enormous steps to support something he believes in. John and his team have inspired so many others to volunteer.â&#x20AC;?

Moving on

Tennessee, are musically inclined. Lundstrom has been playing the drums since he was a toddler, but the interest turned serious when he attended Scott Highlands Middle School â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the family previously lived in Apple Valley and Burnsville. He has played in concert bands since that time and joined the high schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s powerhouse marching band with his 30-pound tenor drum his sophomore and junior years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Playing in the marching band is more physically demanding on you,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You are moving at 200 beats per minute. Our marching band is elite and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had some great musicians in it.â&#x20AC;? The band is a perennial state champion and is consistently pushing its performance in more challenging directions. When Lundstrom takes to the field at the high schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Irish Stadium on Saturday, he wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be lugging his tenor drum this time. Instead, he will don a cap and gown. While his Kids â&#x20AC;&#x2122;n Kinship mentor will be somewhere around Des Moines, Iowa, on the back of his bike, Lundstrom knows he will be there in his heart.

After graduation, the road for Lundstrom will take him to Inver Hills Community College. He then plans to transfer to the University of Tennessee to study music and business â&#x20AC;&#x201C; or, more accurately, the music business. While the area is known as a hotbed for bluegrass and country music, Lundstromâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s musical tastes trend more toward rhythm-andblues and hip-hop. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would rather produce the music or mix it,â&#x20AC;? Lundstrom said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hopefully, I get good enough that I could become a session artist, too.â&#x20AC;?

Anti-drug/violence poster winners announced

These two homes are now official Farmington Heritage landmarks, having been designated as such by the Farmington City Council on May 16. The American Foursquare-style houses are located on Third Street in downtown Farmington.

Two Farmington homes are now historical landmarks by Laura Adelmann THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

Bruce and Ann Jensen, self-described â&#x20AC;&#x153;history tourists,â&#x20AC;? no longer have to leave home to enjoy one of Farmingtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s official Farmington Heritage landmarks. The Farmington City Council on May 16 declared the Jensensâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; home at 708 Third St., and a neighboring house at 621 Third St., two of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cultural heritage landmarks. As a result, both properties will be preserved and major changes to the property that could affect the homeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s historical character must be approved by the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Heritage Preservation Committee. Ann Jensen said she and her husband are excited to live in an officially designated historical landmark, noting that Farmingtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s abundance of historical buildings lured them to move to the city from Apple Valley 10 years ago. Both houses in the program reflect historic styles and were built between 1890 and 1920, a boom time in Farmingtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s development. During that period, the village of Farmingtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s population more than dou-

bled, according to a July 2010 Heritage Landmark Planning report prepared by preservation planning consultant Robert C. Vogel. In it, Vogel explained people moved into cities and towns from rural areas as commercial agriculture expanded. Across the United States, many homes were built in the â&#x20AC;&#x153;American Foursquareâ&#x20AC;? architectural style which the landmarks represent; plans for that style of home could even be bought in kits from Sears for under $2,000. The Jensensâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; home, built in 1918, was owned by the Maloney family for most of its history, according to Ann Jensen. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The last Maloney to live here was Eva, and she sold it to the people we bought it from,â&#x20AC;? she said. The other home declared a cultural landmark was built in 1910 and is owned by Greg and Julayne Miller. Both houses are spacious and boxy, and feature a large front porch. The owners of a bungalow located at 719 Third St. and built in 1920 had planned to enter the program, but withdrew their application before the meet-

ing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They want to think about it a little more before moving forward,â&#x20AC;? said Tony Wippler, assistant city planner. At the meeting, Vogel said historically designated properties generally rise in value. He added that although the designation stays with the property even if owners change, the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s preservation standards donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t impair a homeownerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ability to paint or make minor improvements. The commission would allow for upgrades and interior paint changes, concentrating on major issues that would result in a loss of historical character. Vogel said property owners who enter the program like it because it reflects a pride of place. For the Jensens, the designation speaks to how the city celebrates and treasures its past. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We like that Farmington does this,â&#x20AC;? Ann Jensen said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a real sense of history here.â&#x20AC;? Laura Adelmann is at laura. adelmann@ecm-inc.com.

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.

Photo by Rick Orndorf

Farmington catcher Danielle Muelken fields a bunt amidst heavy Tiger traffic in front of home plate for the putout. Coming in as the No. 4 seed, Farmington defeated No. 5 Northfield 3-2 in the first round of playoffs May 25. In the next round, No. 1 seed Hastings shut out the Tigers 5-0 to send Farmington to the losers’ bracket where they lost to Rochester Mayo 5-4, ending the team’s season. It was the first time Farmington lost two games in a row since the Lakeville North tournament on May 7. The Tigers went 7-7 in the Missota Conference and 10-10 overall in the regular season, which got the team a first-round bye and a home game in the playoffs.

whole body of room for error. Everyone has a specific pre-jump routine whether it’s listening to music or private meditation. For Pieri, she’s always in pre-jump routine. “Most of the time I let my emotions pump me up,” she said. “I am always excited to jump and run, even days in advance.” She finished second at state last season when she cleared 5 feet, 5 inches. She has a new personal record of 5-feet-6 this season. Her goal is to eventually clear 5-feet10, with on eye on an even 6 feet, which would be a state record. Her support system at South will go a long way in getting her there. She has some of the best jumpers in the state with her at every meet such as Kaitlin VanWinkle, Shaina Burns, Allison Mosser and Caraline Slattery, “My teammates and I all get along really well,” she said. “We also help each other on what we need to work on even when coach (John) Brand isn’t there.” Pieri is competing at the Section 1AA meet Saturday with her teammates at her home course at Lakeville South. The state meet is scheduled for June 10-11 at Hamline University in St. Paul.

As one of the best young track athletes in Minnesota, Lakeville South freshman Morgan Pieri has cleared several mental hurdles in the past two years. The South Suburban Conference champion in the high jump may be just a freshman, but Pieri has been competing long enough that she doesn’t notice her foes are often three years older than she is. “I’m very comfortable around seniors,” she said. “I don’t really think about age. I have always been around older athletes.” While she also competes in the long jump and 100-meter dash, the high jump is her favorite event, especially after coming home with the silver medal at state last year as an eighth-grader. High jumping is unique among track and field events. While many people know what it’s like to run, jump and throw, high jumping looks almost impossible to the novice. It takes a long, measured stride backed by speed, power and intense focus. “I normally take deep breaths and imagine myself clearing the bar,” Pieri said. “I also stare at the bar for at least 30 seconds.” Form is probably the most difficult aspect to master.
