Metro transit budget cuts could mean reduced transit in Lakeville Once funding would be restored routes could be restarted by Aaron Vehling THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

When it comes to discussions about the Legislature right now, most of it centers on the current state government shutdown. There are calls to come to a compromise to pass the budget and get the state moving again. But what can be overlooked is the content

of that budget. Should it pass, the budget includes a 20 percent cut in funding to Metro Transit that could possibly eliminate all its bus routes to Lakeville, according to proposals the Met Council presented at a recent public meeting. The $109 million reduction would hit some of the

center cities’ busiest bus routes, too, but the typical scenario maps indicate Lakeville would be cut off from the system. “We’re trying not to be route-specific in the absence of a specific proposal or recommendation,� said Metro Transit spokeswoman Bonnie Kollodge. “But we’re also saying everything is on

the table. A 25 percent reduction in service is huge.� About 131 of Metro Transit’s 146 routes would experience elimination or some level of reduction, Kollodge said. This comes on the heels of Metro Transit’s highest ridership year in decades. In addition, Lakeville’s Kenrick Avenue park-and-

Is your legislator still collecting a paycheck? More are choosing to get paid during shutdown than not by Erin Johnson THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

Some Minnesota lawmakers have declined their July paychecks, but more have continued to receive payment even as the state remains shut down for the foreseeable future. Gov. Mark Dayton announced June 18 that he would refuse pay during the shutdown, and some lo-

Help District 194 choose a new leader

 

�� 

School Board requests community input in hiring process by Aaron Vehling THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

The Lakeville school district is inviting the community to help it interview its two superintendent candidates next week. Bob Laney, currently an assistant superintendent with the St. Louis Park School District, will be available from 5 to 5:45 p.m., at the Lakeville South High School lecture room Wednesday, July 20. Lisa Snyder, the current superintendent of the school district in Merrill, Wis., will be available from 5 to 5:45 p.m., at the Lakeville South High School lecture room Thursday, July 21. On Tuesday afternoon, July 12, the Lakeville School Board identified Laney and Snyder from a pool of five finalists, who were isolated the day before from an even larger

Bob Laney Lisa Snyder pool of 29 candidates. Laney has been a candidate for superintendent positions in other districts at least a couple times in 2011. He was a candidate for the Shakopee leadership role in June and sought the top job in Stillwater (against the likes of former Farmington superintendent Brad Meeks, who did not get that position either) in March. Toni Johns of School Exec Connect, Lakevilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s search firm, said at the school board meeting on Monday night Laney had demonstrated a skillful ability to manage budget cuts and tough transitions

St. Louis Park over the past few years. Snyder has been at her current job since 2009. She previously has worked in various administration and teaching capacities in the Holmen and Sparta school districts in Wisconsin and the Winona school district in Minnesota, according to a press release from the Merrill school district that was issued when she was hired there. Snyder received her doctorate in education from the University of Minnesota and her master and bachelor of science degrees from Winona State University. School board members had commented that they were highly impressed with both candidates. On July 21, the board will select the new superintendent.

Former Lakeville superintendent Gary Amoroso finished up nine years with the district on July 1 to accept a position as executive director of the Minnesota Association of School Administrators.

Board retains pay cuts, but adds back stipend pay THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

The Farmington School Board voted July 11 to reinstate stipends to board members for attending certain meetings. Board members will again receive a $30 stipend for each negotiation meeting, retreat and nonregularly scheduled meeting attended. If those meetings last beyond the initial three hours, board members will then begin to be paid $30 per hour to attend. The stipend pay will not be retroactive, but will be implemented immediately. During the past two meetings, Board Members Julie Singewald and Julie McKnight have argued

for the boardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s full pay and the stipends to be reinstated, In January, they were the only votes opposing eliminating the stipends and cutting the board chairpersonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s salary from $5,250 to $4,500 and other board membersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; pay from $4,200 to $3,600. Under the revised resolution, those reduced salaries will remain in place. Singewald said board members put in a lot of time beyond televised meetings, and previously stated she has used 76 hours of unpaid time from work to attend board meetings this year. Board Member Tim Burke voted against reinstating stipends. He said taking pay cuts

��           

is symbolic of the boardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s willingness to lead by example in tough economic times. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re talking about the sentiment that goes with taking a little less for ourselves,â&#x20AC;? Burke said. But McKnight said district staff may have received the wrong message after the earlier vote, because employees began to worry they would also be asked to take pay cuts. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nobody has ever come up to me and said you get paid too much. The comment has always been the exact opposite no matter what the salaries have been,â&#x20AC;? McKnight said.

Opinion ECM Editorial Discretion advised on state constitutional amendments One of the few things resolved by the 2011 Minnesota Legislature is to propose a constitutional amendment to the voters that would limit valid marriages to only those between a man and a woman. While this was the only proposed amendment approved so far by the current Legislature, it has under consideration another 20 or so proposed constitutional amendments for the 2012 general election ballot. The Legislature was able to finalize the decision to place the marriage amendment on the general election ballot in large part because our state constitution affords the governor no role in amending the constitution. Amendments require a simple majority of each house of the Legislature, and then an affirmative vote of a majority of Minnesota voters voting at the general election in which the proposed amendment is on the ballot.

Amending Minnesotaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s constitution is relatively easy compared with amending the U.S. Constitution, which requires approval of two-thirds of each house of Congress and then approval of threefourths of the state legislatures. The U.S. Constitution has been amended only 27 times since it was adopted in 1789, 222 years ago. The first 10 of those 27 amendments comprise the Bill of Rights and were all ratified in 1789. In the last 220 years the U.S. Constitution has been amended only 17 times. Of the thousands of proposed amendments considered by Congress over the past 222 years, only 33 have received the required twothirds support of each house of Congress, and but 27 of those were ratified by the requisite three-fourths of state legislatures. On the other hand, in the 153 years that Minnesotaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s constitution has existed, it has been amended 121 times. Over that period the Legislature has proposed

213 amendments, and the voters have rejected 92 of them, an approval rate of 56.8 percent. The rates of approval and acceptance of proposed Minnesota constitutional amendments have varied over the years, in part due to a subtle but significant change, made many years ago, in the standard for votes necessary to approve a proposed amendment. In the first 40 years of statehood, Minnesota voters approved 48 of the 66 proposed amendments, an approval rate of 73 percent. The original state constitution merely required an affirmative vote of those voting on the proposal â&#x20AC;&#x201D; more â&#x20AC;&#x153;yesâ&#x20AC;? votes than â&#x20AC;&#x153;noâ&#x20AC;? votes. In 1898, desiring to make it more challenging to pass constitutional amendments, the Legislature proposed a constitutional amendment to change the standard for adoption of a proposed constitutional amendment from an affirmative vote of a majority of those voting on the question to

an affirmative vote of those voting in that election. With 70,000 voting â&#x20AC;&#x153;yesâ&#x20AC;? and 33,000 voting â&#x20AC;&#x153;noâ&#x20AC;? on this proposed amendment, the Minnesota Constitution was amended. Ironically, with 253,000 people voting in that election, and 150,000 not voting on the proposed amendment, it would have been well short of the votes necessary had it been held to its own standard. Since 1898 the approval rate for constitutional amendments has dropped to about 50 percent, and the standard adopted in 1898 is still a part of our constitution. In more recent years the approval rate for proposed amendments has been very high. Since 1980, 18 proposed constitutional amendments have been on the ballot, and the voters have adopted 17 of them. Politicians, academicians and editorial writers will debate what is appropriate to include in our constitution, and whether and

for what it should be amended. But it is clear that the plebiscite afforded citizens in the amendment process for our Minnesota Constitution is one that provides that all voices can have a say and all voters will have an impact, whether they intend to or not. While the Minnesota Constitution allows voters to override the executive branchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision, history suggests legislators should be cautious about overusing the amendment process. Voters should study the issues carefully, and use discretion in amending the state constitution. Future legislators might consider changing the Minnesota Constitution so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s at least as difficult to amend as the U.S. Constitution.

Thisweek Columnist Summer is time for us to celebrate community Larry Werner THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

Last Saturday was another one of those hot, humid days for the annual Pan-O-Prog parade in downtown Lakeville. Festival officials brag that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s never rained on the parade over its 45 years. But for those of us walking in the parade as representatives of Thisweek and the Dakota County Tribune, sunny skies mean a test of whether weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re fit enough to survive the heat during this mile-long march of 135 floats, bands and other entries. As I handed out Thisweek note pads while trying to keep up with the truck carrying our banners, a guy shouted from the crowd, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Why is the young guy driving the truck?â&#x20AC;? That young guy, Jade Harper, husband of education reporter Jessica Harper, was driving because it was his truck. And the

old guy wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t driving because I love walking in the parade, even though it is a fitness challenge. Tad Johnson, our managing editor, loves a parade also. And even though he was on baby-sitting duty with his 16-month-old daughter, Eleanor, he was there handing out note pads while pushing a stroller along Holyoke Avenue. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s summer, and that means itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time for the newspaper staff to join in community celebrations. We do it because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fun, and because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what the staff of a community newspaper should be doing. During almost 40 years working for daily newspapers, I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t once asked to march in a parade. But a local newspaper is expected to be closer to local people and local events. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no better time for us to do that than summer. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be handing out note pads on July 30 at the Leprechaun Days

parade in downtown Rosemount. We are sponsors of Eaganâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Marketfest, which attracts thousands of our neighbors on Wednesday evenings to the Community Center grounds for music, food and a farmers market. In September, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be calling bingo numbers at Burnsvilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Fire Muster. We were at Apple Valleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Freedom Days and Farmingtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dew Days. Each spring as our â&#x20AC;&#x153;promotion committeeâ&#x20AC;? gathers to set up a schedule for festival participation, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tempting to say weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all too busy to give up weekends and evenings for festivals. And since we give our papers away, rather than sell them, is it really necessary to spend time and money on promotion? Yes. Community journalism is more than publishing weekly papers and posting stories on Thisweeklive. com. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about building community by keeping people informed and being part of the events that

bring our neighbors together. My late mother-in-law, Helen Zweber, raised six kids on a farm near Lakeville before moving into town with her husband, LeRoy. One of her grandest days came several years after LeRoy died. Helen and her grammar-school beau, Bob White, had married shortly before Pan-O-Prog. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll never forget the joy they got riding a golf cart in the parade with a â&#x20AC;&#x153;Just Marriedâ&#x20AC;? sign on the back. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s that kind of small-town summer fun that makes these festivals irresistible to an aging newspaper guy who probably should have been driving the truck, rather than running behind. Maybe next year. Larry Werner is editor and general manager of the Dakota County Tribune and Thisweek Newspapers. He can be reached at larry. werner@ecm-inc.com.

Letters Letter about gas tax was meant in jest

IRA tax reform to reduce U.S. debt

To the editor: Last week, I wrote about a proposal about a variable tax to keep gas at $4/gallon. It was not intended to be taken seriously, but rather as a extreme example intended to start a conversation of good ideas to reduce the U.S.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dependency on oil. HARLEY HORSAGER Lakeville

To the editor: The Investment Company Institute estimates that in 2010 a total of $4.7 trillion was invested in IRA accounts. Approximately $1 trillion of this amount is due to the U.S. government when IRA distributions are made during retirement. Current policy requires that savers who have a standard IRA account (taxable) and want to convert it to a Roth IRA account (nontaxable) pay the standard U.S. income tax rate on

their combined income and converted money. Conversion may also trigger an Alternative Minimum Tax if the amount to be converted is large. This heavy tax discourages standard IRA to Roth IRA conversions. The taxman thus must wait 20 to 30 years to get all of tax owed as the retiree slowly withdraws funds from their standard IRA account. If IRA savers were allowed to voluntarily convert a standard IRA to a Roth IRA but pay their conversion tax at a lower rate (say capital gains rate) with no AMT trigger, then many more savers would

Meanwhile private contractors canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do business with the government, public employees are without work, and vulnerable families and individuals are without needed assistance. Fortunately most cults come to an end and unless Republican legislators canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t realistically and reasonably compromise for the good of their constituents their cult will surely be dismantled after the November 2012 election.

The savers could covert their standard IRA to a Roth IRA and get the taxman out of their retirement accounts while the U.S. government would unlock tax revenue tied up in standard IRAs to pay down the U.S. debt. Please contact Rep. John Kline and our two Minnesota senators and urge them to pass legislation that would allow standard IRA to Roth IRA conversions at a reduced tax rate so that the U.S. government can unlock this tax revenue to pay down the U.S. debt.

Veteransâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; memorial planned for Rambling River Park A rendering indicates how the veteransâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; memorial area may be laid out in Rambling River Park.

by Laura Adelmann THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

By next summer, local organizers hope to begin development of a public memorial to Farmingtonarea soldiers who died in service to this country. Preliminary designs for the monument, to be located at Rambling River Park, show a granite tablet wall engraved with the names of fallen servicemen and women from the Farmington area, beneath the words: â&#x20AC;&#x153;All gave some, some gave all.â&#x20AC;? Topping the tablet is a blue granite sculpture of a folded American flag with the stars showing. An American flag is planned to flank one side of the monument and the POW/MIA flag is to fly on the other. In front of the veteransâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; memorial, a full-size statue of a saluting soldier wearing a helmet and backpack is planned. The memorial wall is designed to be expandable in the future. Former City Council Member Leon Orr is leading a group of veterans working on the project,

which they hope will cost $200,000 or less. Orr said many nearby communities, including Lakeville and Northfield, have built memorials, and people have talked for years about having one in Farmington. A few years ago, the city added a memorial to its master plan for Rambling River Park. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are people from the Farmington area who unfortunately have in the past, and some who will in the future, give their lives while serving the military. â&#x20AC;Ś This (memorial) is simply to forever and ever recognize what they did,â&#x20AC;? Orr said. He said the monument will also include pavers that people can purchase to engrave the names of those

who have served in the military but did not die in service; another granite tablet will list the names of major donors to the project. To raise money for the project, the group will hold its first fundraiser on July 28 from 4 to 8 p.m. at the Tamarack Ridge Shopping Center, 20700 Chippendale Ave. (Highway 3). The event is free, but donations for the project will be taken. Attractions that day, organized by Tamarack Ridge businesses, include a block party with live music from local musician Ben Aaron, a bouncy house, K-9 demonstration, face painting, the National Guard rock climbing wall and the Farmington Fire Department smoke house.

Free ice cream and snocones will be given away and a raffle will be held to win a pair of Minnesota Twins tickets. Orr invited anyone interested in helping with the memorial project to attend one of the meetings, held at 7 p.m. on the third Tuesday of every month at the Farmington VFW. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need to be a veteran to be involved. We just need people who are interested in seeing this take place,â&#x20AC;? Orr said. Organizers discussed plans for the memorial at the 6 p.m. Farmington Parks and Recreation Advisory Commission meeting Wednesday at City Hall. Laura Adelmann is at laura. adelmann@ecm-inc.com.

Route 467, which travels from the park-and-ride to downtown Minneapolis, had 600 users each weekday. Its average following its September 2009 opening was about 300 but soon doubled. So what would happen to that facility if the route were eliminated, albeit temporarily? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really care to speculate, but we have had to give that some consideration,â&#x20AC;? Kollodge said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We would have to arrange to protect any idled facilities. We would, on a caseby-case basis, see if there were other options for use of the facilities, such as â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;park-and-pool.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;? Once funds became available, the route and the park-and-ride would be restored as soon as possible.

A balance The tension between commuter/express routes (such as those that originate in the suburbs and travel directly to downtown Minneapolis) and local routes, which serve points around Minneapolis and St. Paul, is one source of the problem with Metro Transitâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attempt to address less funding from the state. Metro Transit operates buses, light rail, commuter rail, paratransit and dial-a-ride on a budget of about $375 million a year. Because most of its transit services are centered on buses, those routes will take the brunt of the cuts, according to public meeting material from Metro Transit. As noted earlier, most of the routes would be affected somewhat. Here is a sample of the result of the 20 percent cut: â&#x20AC;˘ Lower performing routes eliminated. â&#x20AC;˘ Some high ridership routes eliminated, including most U of M routes; riders shift to local service. â&#x20AC;˘ Park-and-ride could see two different outcomes: an elimination of all such service, or retaining high-ridership service to major park-and-ride markets while making deeper cuts to â&#x20AC;&#x153;localâ&#x20AC;? or city and inner-ring suburban service. One thing to note is that this is not set in stone at this point. A budget has not been passed by the time Thisweek went to press Wednesday, July 13.

Not permanent State Rep. Mary Liz Holberg of Lakeville is the chair of the Houseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ways and Means committee, which deals specifically with how the Legislature spends money. She said the cut in Met-

ro Transit funding would be for the current biennium. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why in the bill you see the general fund number bouncing back in the next biennium,â&#x20AC;? Holberg said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a way to get it done, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not pretty.â&#x20AC;? She added that there is money available from the half-cent sales tax that five of the seven metro counties levy in order to fund transit. Instead of the County Transit Improvement Board planning

for the proposed Southwest Light Rail line from downtown to Minneapolis to Eden Prairie, she said, the tens of millions could be used to help buffer Metro Transit during the next two years. The current response to the budget cuts is not final, but Kollodge said Metro Transit prepared the route maps so â&#x20AC;&#x153;people arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t caught off guard by the possible implications.â&#x20AC;? A more concrete proposal will be developed following August public

hearings. The plan would be implemented in August, Kollodge said. Though, as with most things state-related at this point, Kollodge said â&#x20AC;&#x153;a budget resolution could influence our budget planning.â&#x20AC;?

Kaitlyn Rosenbush was crowned Miss Lakeville 2011, and Alexis Friesen and Jaycee Nelson were crowned Lakevilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first and second Princesses, at the Miss Lakeville 2011 Scholarship Pageant at Lakeville South on July 6. The pageant consisted of four competition events, beginning with a private interview with the judging panel the morning of the pageant, and three events at the evening competition itself. Rosenbush said her duties as Miss Lakeville exposed her to more of Pan-O-Prog than she had seen in years past. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We just showed up at every Pan-O-Prog event and did something different everywhere we went. â&#x20AC;Ś We got to announce floats at the parade, we were in the parade, and we got to be at the kiddie parade just saying hi to kids,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever been to every single Pan-O-Prog event. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so much fun.â&#x20AC;? Rosenbush will be a freshman at North Central University this fall. She was sponsored by the Kohlnhofer Insurance Agency,

Lakevilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s First Princess 2011 is Alexis Friesen, who was sponsored by the Life Wellness Center. This fall she will be a sophomore at the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities, studying genetics and Spanish. As First Princess, she won a $1,000 scholarship. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One thing that I think people donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t understand is that the Miss Lakeville pageant is not just a beauty pageant, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a scholarship program, and all of us that were crowned were awarded scholarships to help us in our higher education,â&#x20AC;? she said. Friesen talked about her and her fellow Lakeville royaltyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s duty as ambassadors for the city. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We go out to other cities and coronations and parades, and really represent Lakeville in multiple com-

she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lakevilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s such a great place, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m so happy to call this place home.â&#x20AC;? At the pageant, contestants had to begin with a personal introduction of themselves and their sponsors to the audience, and then participated in an â&#x20AC;&#x153;All About Meâ&#x20AC;? event, in which they put together an outfit and explained to the audience why it described them. The pageant ended with an evening gown competition, for which contestants were judged based on comportment, grace and their response to a live interview question. The competition is meant to encourage â&#x20AC;&#x153;personal and professional growth,â&#x20AC;? according to the pageant website. Pan-O-Prog means something different to each of the members of royalty, but Rosenbush summed it up well. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about) tradition,â&#x20AC;? Rosenbush said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re unique and we love to celebrate that and where weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve come from.â&#x20AC;?

As Princesses, Nelson and Friesen â&#x20AC;&#x153;are Miss Lakevilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sidekicks. â&#x20AC;Ś We just tag along, the three of us as royalty, and attend Pan-O-Prog events,â&#x20AC;? Nelson said. During the audience interview portion of the pageant, Nelson was asked to explain Pan-O-Prog to someone who has never before attended. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just told them that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a really great community celebration, a great way to bring Lakeville together,â&#x20AC;? she said. In her duties as Second Princess, Nelson enjoyed meeting community members. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My favorite part about being a princess would have to be just seeing all the little kids and meeting all the people in our community,â&#x20AC;?

Sports Shutdown blues got you down? Go outside Although the state parks are closed, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plenty of outdoor adventure left in summer by Andy Rogers THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

BEYOND THE BOXSCORE

The Minnesota state shutdown doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t immediately affect my job. Meaning I still have one. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t buy lottery tickets or play the ponies. I purchased a fishing license on opening day. It does affect my friends directly. My friend Matt Boyer from Eagan works for the state in St. Paul. Believing that all the shutdown talk was posturing, he never seemed too concerned. He still feels the same way. After a two-week vacation he came home to a pink slip and decided to extend his vacation. We always pride ourselves on being spontaneous. After a five-minute planning phone call and an abbreviated work week, I was headed to the North Shore for an impromptu backpacking adventure. The Superior Hiking Trail isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t run by any state pro-

gram. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s run by a non-profit agency with several volunteers. The trail begins in Duluth and ends at the Canadian border 277 miles away with 82 campsites along the way. It takes at least three weeks to complete. We set aside three days. We didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t exactly need the government to hike the Superior Hiking Trail. There was no reservation or permit to hike the trail. No one knew what we were up to except for our wives. We came across several likeminded vacationers who, unlike the legislators in St. Paul, all got along. On the way, we crossed paths with Split Rock Lighthouse, Gooseberry Falls and Temperance River state parks, all technically closed. People parked on the highway shoulders to hike and swim

anyway. The buildings were locked and there were no rangers available for questions, but Minnesotans werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t going to let that hinder their vacations. We filled our water bottles from Lake Superior and trusted the instincts passed down from Lewis and Clark. While camping at Split Rock Lighthouse State Park and Gooseberry Falls is unavailable, sites along the Superior Hiking Trail are free to use by anyone. These arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the drive up your RV type. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re about four miles from any parking lot and the electricity comes from the batteries you bring with. You could share your site with any variety of people. We ran into groups that had a 6:30 p.m. bed time and others who planned on doing 150 miles in four days with nothing but a hammock and chocolate bars. If you go, three things you must have: bug spray, water and comfortable hiking boots.

The rest are luxuries. You carry everything with you: sleeping bags, tents, tuna fish, peanut butter, long sleeve shirts for 90 degree days, etc. Five extra pounds could seriously dampen your excitement when the sun is at its peak. And you really start to notice the lack of breezes in Minnesota. The variety in trail elevation allows for a few spectacular views of cliffs and waterfalls. The swampy lowlands promote wildflowers as flies which seem to enjoy the smell of insect repellent. Unless they use a different ruler on the north shore of Lake Superior, plan on about a mile an hour. We did 30 miles in about 48 hours. After all that fresh air it was nice to be inside for a while and drink up the air conditioning. Driving north of Duluth might not be in your unemployment budget, but there are several hikes in Dakota

The Superior Hiking Trail is free and open during the government shutdown. County open to the public. Lebanon Hills in Eagan has miles to wander. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a county park, so hike away. Outdoor activity is prescribed for almost everyone suffering from the blues. The south metro has a park seem-

ingly within a mile of every house. For more information about the Superior Hiking Trail visit www.shta.org. Andy Rogers is at andy.rogers@ecm-inc.com.

Lundinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hockey journey comes home Apple Valley High School alumnus, Lakeville resident signs with Minnesota Wild by Andy Rogers THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

The Minnesota Wild felt like they signed a steady, veteran defender when they acquired four-year NHL pro Mike Lundin last weekend. The 2003 Apple Valley High School graduate felt at home, finally. After graduating, he played for the University of Maine, where he caught the eye of the Tampa Bay Lightning, which selected him 104th in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft. He played within the Tampa Bay organization for 224 games the past four seasons, including the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most recent run to the Eastern Conference finals. The Lightningâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s season ended when one goal in game seven favored the Boston Bruins, which went on to win the Stanley Cup. Following the game, Lundin was a free agent. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nice to be paid to play hockey and skate in the NHL, but being a free agent is tough on the nerves. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a little bit of a crazy summer with free agency not knowing where youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re able to play,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Wild were always in the

picture. You have to factor in opportunity and money and who wants you. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot to take in. You listen to teams that donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want you or donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like your game. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tough. When it ends up you get to play for your home team itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good way to end it.â&#x20AC;? It was always a dream of his to play for the Wild, but with 30 teams in the NHL it was not up to him. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It seemed like a long shot,â&#x20AC;? Lundin said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My friends were always asking: â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;When are the Wild going to sign you?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Once I heard they were interested, I thought it would be amazing if it worked out.â&#x20AC;? He hopes his playoff experience will rub off on the Wild, which hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been to the playoffs since 2008. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to explain how intense it is,â&#x20AC;? Lundin said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That first game out there is so fast and intense. I thought, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see how they can keep this up. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all going to be injured in a few weeks.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;? Lundin is used to being one of the younger players on defense, but with the Wild heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s older than about half of his teammates.

Cougar dance team Lakeville North pancake breakfast football camp July 23 starts July 25 There will be a pancake breakfast to raise money for the fall dance season hosted by the Lakeville South dance team from 8-10 a.m. on July 23 at Applebeeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, 1840 Kenrick Ave., in Lakeville. Each meal is $5. People will be served by the Cougar dancers and have the opportunity to purchase a gift basket.

The Lakeville North football staff is sponsoring summer football camp for athletes entering third through 12th grade July 25-28. The camp for grades three to six will run from 1-4 p.m. July 25-28. The cost is $90. Grades seven and eight run from 1- 4 p.m. on July 25-28. Equipment checkout is at 9 a.m. in the Lakeville North High School parking lot. The cost is $90. Grades nine-12 will go from 9 a.m.-noon on July 25-

     

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a new role for me,â&#x20AC;? Lundin said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I always felt like a younger guy.â&#x20AC;? Lundinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s numbers donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stand out on the stat sheet, but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s OK for defenders. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m steady, solid,â&#x20AC;? Lundin said when asked what Wild fans can expect. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t put up a ton of points or been real offensive at the high level. Hopefully I can contribute and help other guys score.â&#x20AC;? For Lundin fans, it will be much more fun to watch him play this year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I always made a point to watch him play,â&#x20AC;? Apple Valley head coach Jerry Hayes said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As much as I hated watching the Lighting jersey with the Eastview connection I always made a point to go when they were in tow. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nice now I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to block off one particular day. I can go to a lot of games now.â&#x20AC;? Hayes had an idea that he had something special when Lundin stepped on the ice almost 10 years ago. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was so dominant and such a great skater,â&#x20AC;? Hayes said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He used to play 42 out of 48 minutes and just take a breather. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know if I ever saw a high school player play 28. The cost is $40. Anyone who has not picked up equipment (grades nine-12) must pick up equipment at 7:15 a.m. on July 25. Varsity players received equipment at the beginning of the summer, and ninth and 10th grade players who have been lifting at school during the summer will receive their equipment at 10 a.m. on July 20. The camps will be held at Lakeville North High School.

The Lakeville Pan-O-Prog fourmile runners watched rain clouds cover Lake Marion at the start of their race, but the rain held off for most of the races on July 9. The menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s four-mile winner was Matt Volz, at right, with a time of 21 minutes, 18 seconds. The womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s four-mile winner was Elizabeth Yetzer, far right, with a time of 23:04. For more photos from the race, go online to www.ThisweekLive.com.

If anything, his level of pride and excitement to play for Minnesota may be unmatched by anyone on the team. Though he is much traveled, he has always maintained an address in the south metro having been born in Burnsville and raised in Apple Valley. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Just the experience of high school hockey in Minnesota is something,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really know it until you go out into the world and see other guys who havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t had that.â&#x20AC;?

a 6 percent spending increase, noted District 37A Rep. Tara Mack of Apple Valley, who is serving her second term in the House of Representatives. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We expect the state to receive 6 percent more in revenue without raising taxes in the upcoming biennium, and that should be enough to support state government priorities,â&#x20AC;? Mack said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Families and businesses everywhere are making do with flat or reduced incomes in this economy, and government must acknowledge todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s realities as well.â&#x20AC;? Freshman Rep. Doug Wardlow of Eagan places the blame for the shutdown squarely on Daytonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shoulders, and urges the governor to call a special session and pass a lights-on bill. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I hope he will change his mind, because the shutdown is totally unnecessary and unwarranted,â&#x20AC;? said Wardlow, who represents District 38B. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The governor has not made a case for additional revenue,â&#x20AC;? Wardlow said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I cannot support a tax increase, especially in difficult economic times like these.â&#x20AC;? Gerlach rejects contentions that Republicans arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t willing to compromise with Dayton.

year contract that may be extended by Feb. 1. His salary is prorated to $158,654 this year because of the later start date. Haugenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s contract includes 30 vacation days annually, and he can accrue and cash out a maximum of 60 vacation days upon separation from the district. At the end of his contract, Haugen can be paid up to 200 days of accrued paid sick leave. Annually, Haugen will receive $1,500 in his flex spending account for medical and dental expenses not covered in the districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s insurance plan. The district will contribute $3,000 per contract year to Haugenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s post-retirement health care savings plan and match Haugenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s contributions to his 403(b) deferred compensation plan up to $8,500 each contract year. Farmington School Board members expressed thanks to those who helped during the superintendent search and interview process and indicated they were eager to begin working with Haugen. Board Member Tim Burke, who noted the contract negotiations took just minutes, said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Every time I get the chance to talk to (Haugen), Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m more and more certain that we made the best possible choice we could.â&#x20AC;?

He said he is working on such a long-range group developing a 21st century tax policy. Now the battle has turned political with both sides blaming each other, which Bills said doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help negotiations or Minnesotans. Bills said he wished the Republicansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; budget had been approved by the governor. One idea that Bills called his â&#x20AC;&#x153;favoriteâ&#x20AC;? compromise was Dayton accepting the Republicansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; budget in exchange for Dayton being granted all or most of his bonding bill. Bills said this could have avoided another negotiation round in the 2012 session, which primarily focuses on the bonding bill. The statewide influx of Republican freshmen from the 2010 election, which swept the DFL delegations in Eagan and Burnsville out of office, has changed the dynamic of the 2011 Legislature â&#x20AC;&#x153;somewhat,â&#x20AC;? according to Thompson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Many of us come from a business background, an entrepreneurial background,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That being said, many folks have tried to draw a division and make it sound like freshmen versus experienced members,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have not experienced that.â&#x20AC;?

human services. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve met his budget numbers on six or seven omnibus spending bills,â&#x20AC;? Gerlach said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There have been enormous compromises.â&#x20AC;? The Republicansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; $34.2 billion represents revenue announced in a February forecast that was slightly more upbeat than the previous forecast. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I personally would prefer to be spending less than $34 billion,â&#x20AC;? said Thompson, the Lakeville senator. He agreed to the higher figure â&#x20AC;&#x153;in the interest of caucus unity,â&#x20AC;? Thompson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t intend to go beyond that.â&#x20AC;? District 36B Rep. Pat Garofalo of Farmington, who is chair of the state Houseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s education finance committee, said at a Lakeville Area Chamber of Commerce legislative forum Wednesday that he would be open to gambling revenue. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m always willing to support a racino,â&#x20AC;? Garofalo said, adding that such a facility could â&#x20AC;&#x153;grow the economyâ&#x20AC;? in addition to providing revenue. Rep. Kurt Bills, who represents District 37B, agreed that racino could be a way to add revenue to the state budget. He said the main reason budget stalemates have been so common recently is that people are focused too much on short-term fixes and not developing 20-year solutions.

Shutdown could take beer away Products to be taken off shelves because of inability to renew brand registration THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

As if closed state parks and a shuttered lottery werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t enough, now the state shutdown will affect what kind of beer you can drink. MillerCoors, maker of scores of brands that go beyond those suggested in its name, will lose its right to sell products in Minnesota because it did not renew its brand label registration before the state shutdown on June 30. Under state statute, brewers must renew those registrations, pertaining to each label on a beer brand, every three years. Lakeville City Administrator Steve Mielke said the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s liquor operations will be affected but not to a great extent, despite MillerCoorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; pervasive product

line. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most likely people will just switch beer brands,â&#x20AC;? he said. If people opt out of switching brands and forgo beer altogether, then sales could be affected, he said. Lakevilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Liquor Operations Director Brenda Visnovec said she received a call from MillerCoors on Wednesday, July 13, indicating that the company would be sending people to Lakevilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s municipal liquor stores to remove product. Visnovec, who has served in her role for 29 years, said a major beer distributor having to pull its entire product line because of a shutdown is unprecedented. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nothing like this has ever happened,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think of anything similar.â&#x20AC;? Reports in regional me-

dia indicate that MillerCoors did indeed turn in its registration before the shutdown, but experienced some problems. Initially, it paid too much (Visnovec said the cost is about $30 per brand). Then when the company submitted its corrected registration check on June 27 nothing happened. Visnovec said MillerCoors had planned this past week to argue its case before a judge. The problem might not stop with MillerCoors. Visnovec said Anheuser-Busch, maker of Budweiser, Michelob and Busch (and more), could face the same problem in October. MillerCoorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; beer offerings include Blue Moon, Miller, Coors, Molson, Fosters and Mickeyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s products. Visnovec said that res-

taurants and bars could lose their ability to sell all liquor if they do not have the opportunity to renew their â&#x20AC;&#x153;buyerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s card,â&#x20AC;? which the state requires businesses to have to purchase liquor. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some of them didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t realize you need both a liquor license and buyerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s card,â&#x20AC;? she said. Retailers such as Lakeville Liquors also need one. Visnovec said the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s card expires on Dec. 31. Mielke said on Wednesday, July 13, that the MillerCoors products could be pulled off the Lakeville Liquors shelves by the weekend. By the time Thisweek went to press on that same day, the issue had not been resolved. Aaron Vehling is at aaron.vehling@ecm-inc.com and www. facebook.com/thisweeklive.
