This map shows the area along Flagstaff Avenue in Lakeville where the city will install speed signs and restripe the lanes in order to slow down traffic through a residential neighborhood along one of the South Metro’s main thoroughfares.

This past week has been a good one for bacteria and a bad one for those who want to get in some highquality beach time. City crews discovered the presence of coliform bacteria in waters at Antlers Park and Valley Lake beaches. The city subsequently closed both beaches, opening Antlers only after tests came back July 27 suggesting the bacteria levels subsided. When this edition went to press, Valley Lake Park beach remained closed. During some routine tests, Lakeville’s Parks and Recreation Department discovered on July 21 an excessive presence of coliform bacteria in the swimming areas at both those beaches, said Lakeville Parks and Recreation Director Steve Michaud. On July 22, the city closed both beaches pending more positive test results. Michaud said the city conducts these tests every two weeks.

After submitting tests from Wednesday, July 20, and receiving those tests from the lab Thursday evening, Michaud decided to close both beaches. The causes of coliform proliferation are many, but Michaud said that recent conditions have made it easy for the bacteria to thrive: several days of hot weather, excessive precipitation (a recent 5-inch onslaught of rain) and the presence of legions of Canada geese (or, more notably, the birds’ droppings). Michaud said that a few years ago one of Lakeville’s beaches had tested positive for the same bacteria but there were no reports of sickness. He said this time around he has not received any complaints either. Coliform bacteria, commonly referred to as “e. coli,” can cause ear infections and viral and bacterial gastroenteritis.

Lakeville Senior Center vote coming Monday First of many votes will approve planning and construction schedule, but it could mean more THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

What might seem like a minor, routine work session item never is when it comes to the forthcoming move of both the Lakeville Senior Center and Lakeville Area Historical Society (LAHS) into the old police station on Holyoke Avenue. When the council and staff met at a July 25 work session to talk about the construction schedule, they had to switch venues to the council chambers to accommodate dozens of seniors who attended to show their support for the project. One man told Thisweek that he will keep coming – and encourage others to keep attending meetings – to show the city council a sustained support for the project. The city council will vote at its Aug. 1 meeting to approve the planning and construction schedule for the project. It sounds like a formality, but uncertainties abound.

Will it happen? Parks and Recreation Director Steve Michaud, Senior Center Coordinator Linda Walter and LAHS treasurer Wally Potter are leading both groups’ transitions from outdated individual sites to what will be a repurposed site across the street from city hall. The council, in a 3-2 affirmation (there has been no official vote yet), has directed

sary,� Mielke said. He pointed out several council actions that will need to take place, including approving contractors and plans and specifications this September and in January 2012, authorizing the sale of the current senior center site this fall and approving purchase agreements when that sale occurs. When Thisweek asked Potter if this approach has him concerned that the project could fall through at some point, he said he did not think so. He said he could not imagine the council progressing past certain benchmarks only to reverse itself. Council Member Kerrin Swecker said the schedule was comprehensive and “looks very feasible.� Council Member Colleen Ratzlaff LaBeau asked Michaud if he had a financial package put together. “That’s usually first before you go into a lot of this,� she said. She then asked about membership dues. Does Michaud know how much he can raise dues to help pay for

city staff to get started on the process. Instead, votes will occur as the process progresses. Monday’s vote on the schedule will be the first trip down that road. Michaud said he his crew are looking to “move forward.� “We’re trying not to waste any time,� he said. To achieve an October 2012 grand opening, a lot has to happen between now and then. They need to hire architects and construction managers by this September, according to the schedule discussed at the meeting. Designing and zoning phases, the sale of the existing senior center site and fundraising all have to happen at various points between this fall and the next. Procurement of grants also has to occur. Because there has not been a vote that explicitely spells out council support (even if it is only a plurality), some questions remain. City Administrator Steve Mielke has cleared up some of the confusion. “We will attempt to formalize all steps when neces-

operation of the senior center before seniors begin to drop out? “We know the threshold based on the (senior center) survey,� Michaud said. He added that his team is working on the operating budget, which the council could review. Michaud also said he is working on fundraising plans. Perhaps the biggest uncertainty is that the council is not unified in its support of the current plan.

Ratzlaff LaBeau and Mayor Mark Bellows think the project is short-sighted and does not plan for the decades to come when what defines “senior programming� will be far different from what it is today, not to mention the sheer number of seniors. They see the sale of the former police station as way to raise a couple million dollars to pay down some of the city’s $85 million in debt. Council Members Matt Little, Laurie Rieb and

Swecker are the bloc that has been the impetus for the current proposed project to move forward and become a reality.

Opinion Thisweek Columnist

The fair is a chance to savor local history Larry Werner THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

A few years back, I missed my 45th high school reunion in my hometown of Bay City, Mich. It wasn’t a big deal, since I had missed every other reunion except for the 10th. But I found myself wishing I had attended the 45th because of where it was held – at the Bay County Fairgrounds. Growing up in a town about the size of cities we serve with our Thisweek papers, I considered the county fair the highlight of summer. We didn’t have a lot of money, but Mom and Dad always came up with a few bucks for us to blow on rides and food that were as irresistible as they were bad for the stomach.

I’ll never forget the year I blew my fair funds trying to win a prize knocking over those darn milk bottles. I never told my parents I had nothing left for food or rides. Over the years, county fairs have struggled against increasing urbanization and other entertainment options. But next week, the Dakota County Fair will once again attract to Farmington thousands who still enjoy this annual patchwork quilt of activities ranging from livestock exhibits to business promotion to entertainment. Tad Johnson, our managing editor, and Farmington Editor Laura Adelmann have compiled stories and schedules of events for today’s paper and special fair section. The question for the folks run-

ning the fair is how long will this tradition continue in Dakota County. We’ve reported on budget cuts by the fair board that have forced reduction in staff. But the fair continues to offer a double helping of nostalgia at the fairgrounds. The nostalgia comes from the old-fashioned entertainment on the midway and in the barns, buildings and food booths. And it comes from a magnificent jewel known as Dakota City. If you’ve never visited Dakota City, go to the fair, even if your stomach can no longer tolerate the food and rides. This historic village consists of buildings from the 1800s and early 1900s that were moved from all over the county to this five-acre museum. It’s a great place to learn and reminisce about local life back then.

When my son, Zack, was young, he was fascinated by the way heat was used to bend metal in the blacksmith shop, where volunteers demonstrate that ancient craft. I know those visits had something to do with Zack deciding to become a welder. And my boring lectures about the good old days of journalism in the Dakota City newspaper office probably convinced him he didn’t want to follow in Dad’s professional footsteps. For those who love history, as I do, there is no better place than Dakota City. And during the fair, you’ll be able to enjoy almost nonstop entertainment under the tent or on the bandstand in Dakota City. And if that’s not enough culture for you, there will be artists painting at easels scattered throughout the

village. A lot has been written recently about people young and old becoming addicted to video games, smartphones and other products of our technological age. I recommend you turn off the big screen and cell phones next week for a day of old-fashioned family entertainment in Farmington. Let me know if it doesn’t make you feel for a while that those good, old days were, indeed, good. And let me know if you succeed in knocking down those milk bottles.

Letters Thanks to medical team To the editor: On June 24, at approximately 4:45 a.m., my wife Joanne woke up and noticed I was not breathing. My son, Doug, was visiting from Phoenix and was asleep in the adjacent bedroom. My wife awakened Doug and 911 was called. The 911 operator instructed Doug in CPR. Within minutes, two Farmington police officers, Sgt. Gary Rutherford and Officer Andy Bellows, were here and used a defibrillator to restart my heart. The Allina Hospital Ambulance medical emergency crew arrived shortly after the police and took over the situation.

I was transported to the ER at Fairview Ridges Hospital in Burnsville where I was attended by University of Minnesota Physicians Heart Team. I was unaware for 3 and a 1/2 days of the happenings. I now have a pacemaker/defibrillator and a week after my ordeal I’m home and doing well. Thanks to the 911 operator, Rutherford and Bellows, the ambulance crew, and all the great staff, nurses and doctors of U of M Physicians Heart Team at Fairview Ridges Hospital in Burnsville and Southdale. Note: I was told less than 5 percent survive what happened to me on June 24. My family and I want to thank everyone who helped me, prayed for me and for the

excellent care I received. We have a medical emergency team that responds quickly and professionally. Thank you. JIM GLYNN Farmington

To the editor: I have lived in Lakeville for the past 39 years and have always been proud of our community spirit and involvement. However, I was embarrassed to see the pitiful turnout at Lakeville’s Relay for Life on Friday evening. It is an opportunity to honor those who have lost their battle with cancer and to support those still fighting. There were 18 survivors registered and less than 200 people in attendance. In a community the size of ours, where we turn out in large numbers for parades and sporting events, couldn’t we do the same for our cancer survivors and those still struggling with the disease? I felt sad for the many volunteers who had worked many hours to put this event together. My thanks to all who sponsored, donated, at-

Even some adults have been unable to resist the lure of the new 17-foottall slide at Christian Life School in Farmington. The slide is attached to a nearly 27-foot-tall playground structure, the tallest one in the southern metro and one of only five that tall in Minnesota. Manufactured by Little Tykes Commercial, the SkyBuilders play system is part of Christian Lifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new 10,000-square-foot

The new playground at Christian Life School features several play structures, one that soars about three stories tall and features a nearly 17-foot-tall slide. playground, purchased and installed entirely by dedicated volunteers. At 11 a.m. on Saturday, July 30, the school will hold a ribbon cutting for the playground and to kick off Life Fest, a free public event that lasts until 3 p.m. and includes inflatables, childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s games, a car show, a remote-control airplane show and a free lunch. Over the past three years, volunteers donated their time, talent and money to make many needed improvements at the school, including the installation of a new gym floor, a complete renovation of the high school and the development of

its outdoor campus. In addition to the playground, other outside improvements at the school and church include varsity soccer fields, baseball and softball diamonds, a sand volleyball court, walking paths, additional parking and landscaping. Also included in the project is a pavilion area featuring picnic tables and concessions. Improvements were planned in phases to allow time for fundraising, but despite a challenging economy, volunteers stepped forward to raise about $250,000 for the outdoor campus in the last four months, said Christian Life School Ad-

ministrator Darin Kindle. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been incredible,â&#x20AC;? said Kindle, who is also an associate pastor at Christian Life Church. The playground alone was a $100,000 investment, and donations readily came in. Each was a sign to Kindle that Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hand was in the project. He said some school members who donated came forward in tears, and said they felt God was leading them to help financially with the project; children brought in coins and eagerly held fundraisers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People said I really feel like God is asking me to do this. To a certain extent, you have to put it in terms of miraculous,â&#x20AC;? he said. It took 30 volunteers more than 850 hours to assemble the playground; they started by spreading four semi truckloads of engineered wood fiber on the ground to ensure the required safe playing area that is 12 inches deep. For two weeks, the volunteers assembled and installed the large colorful play pieces under the supervision of certified Little Tykes assembly representatives, transforming the property purchased in the late 1970s. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The varsity sports fields have been needed for a long time,â&#x20AC;? Kindle said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These are tremendous improvements that will enhance the campus and programs for all students.â&#x20AC;?

cause it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t handle misdemeanors and forwarded the report to the city of Farmington. That investigation ended June 27 when attorney Sean McCarthy â&#x20AC;&#x153;concluded there was insufficient evidence of criminal conduct to support a conviction beyond a reasonable doubt.â&#x20AC;? The city had hired McCarthy, a Hastings attorney, to obtain an unbiased review of the report to determine if charges were warranted. McCarthy concluded Burkeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s conduct alleged in the report could be viewed as unpleasant or abrasive, but it does not indicate beyond a reasonable doubt that a crime was committed. McCarthy also cited concerns about the motives of the complaining parties because of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;sharply divided political nature of those involved.â&#x20AC;? In addition, the attorney stated that if the parties wanted a definitive legal answer if data practices laws were violated, there are cheaper, faster ways to do so. He suggested seeking a civil data practices advisory opinion through the Department of Administration or an expedited complaint filed with the Office of Administrative Hearings. McCarthy also said those methods would minimize politics involved in the issue. McCarthyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bill to the city for reviewing the report was $546.30; Farmington School District spent about $20,000 regarding the investigation. Burke called the investigation â&#x20AC;&#x153;a jokeâ&#x20AC;? and an expensive â&#x20AC;?waste of timeâ&#x20AC;? and was critical of the board members who voted to pursue it. He said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s prepared to take the matter as far as he has to in order to get his legal fees reimbursed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m willing to take this as far as the rest of the board wants to take it,â&#x20AC;?

Thisweekend The lighter side of the golden years The new Expressions comedy â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;A Month of Sundaysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; offers nursing-home humor for audiences of all ages by Andrew Miller THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

â&#x20AC;&#x153;A Month of Sundaysâ&#x20AC;? is in the tradition of charming, family-friendly comedies Lakeville community theater group Expressions has been presenting since its inception a few years ago. You might say this oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;family friendlyâ&#x20AC;? listing comes with an asterisk, though. The show which opens Aug. 5 at the Lakeville Area Arts Center does have a few bits of risque dialogue, owing to the cantankerous, say-whatever-comes-tomind nature of its elderly

protagonist Cooper (played by Larry Waterman). â&#x20AC;&#x153;He does his best to be adorable, even when heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s being lecherous,â&#x20AC;? said director Andy Wilkins. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It does have a couple of adult moments, but the most PG-13 it gets is when the nurse calls Cooper â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;sex-crazed.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;A Month of Sundaysâ&#x20AC;? derives its humor in large part from what Wilkins calls Cooperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;steadfast determination to maintain his status as a crotchety old manâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; flirting with the nurse and cleaning lady in his nursing home, giving his daughter and son-in-law a

Sports Lakeville North Legion team earns a spot at state by Andy Rogers THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

The Lakeville North American Legion baseball team wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the favorite to qualify for the state tournament this weekend. With a 13-11 record going into the Third District tournament last week, Lakeville North woke up and won five of six to qualify for state. Lakeville North came into the playoffs as the No. 13 seed, needing to win a play-in game to earn a spot on the bracket. The next three games, Lakeville North played perhaps its best stretch of the season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We just started hitting the ball really well,â&#x20AC;? coach Jared Simon said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It started in Edina the week before. There were four, five games there where we put up 10 runs or more. Our bats really just woke up there.â&#x20AC;?

Lakeville North defeated Lakeville South 12-0, Chanhassen 10-0 and Eagan 10-5 before losing to Burnsville in the semifinals. In the losersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; bracket, Lakeville North defeated Northfield 4-2 before reaching the runner-up game versus East Ridge. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We knew weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re good,â&#x20AC;? Simon said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We came out of probably the best sub-district in the state. It was a tough road, but we split with Burnsville and played Eastview tough and those are the best teams here. We knew if we played well we could definitely make it.â&#x20AC;? Both Eastview and Burnsville will join Lakeville North at state. Lakeville North defeated East Ridge 9-4 to qualify for the state tournament in Eden Prairie this weekend. Lakeville North was down by three runs early due to a few un-

fortunate errors, but pitchers AJ Moore and Joel Klinkhammer held steady while the bats continued their wild swings. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The guys really got on each other in the dugout and after that we were fine,â&#x20AC;? Simon said. The awakening of the bats is almost roster-wide with TJ Evanson, Gordon Kappers, Evan Cordell, Alex Hanneman and Adam Alexander leading the charge. Lakeville North will play Albert Lea at 10 p.m. Friday at the Round Lake Stadium in Eden Prairie. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a double-elimination tournament. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re pretty pumped,â&#x20AC;? Simon said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I took this group to regionals â&#x20AC;Ś in Kansas last year. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re hoping we can go as far again.â&#x20AC;? Andy Rogers is andy.rogers@ecm-inc.com.

Cosmos victorious at USA Cup by Andy Rogers THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

At the largest amateur soccer tournament in the Western Hemisphere, the Valley United Cosmos, featuring several top south metro players, notched a big win last weekend at the National Sports Center in Blaine. Valley United defeated one of the top teams in Schwanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s USA Cup history, Swedenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Rudbeckianska, in the U19 Puma Cup finals, which is the top level of play. Rudbeckianska has won four of six division titles stretching back to 2006. At the 56th minute, midfielder Maxwell Rindels from Bloomington followed the ball off a rebound and headed it through the goalieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s legs for the win. Valley United had lost a player to a second yellow card in the second half, but goalie Tim VanBeck kept the Swedish team scoreless.

Beating the Swedes was a little bit sweeter because the Cosmos lost to them last year at the USA Cup at U18. The Cosmos played several international teams leading up to the finals. In pool play the boys tied with a Mexico City team, Centro Universitario, and defeated PSA Crossfire from Plymouth and the St. Paul Blackhawks. Valley United ended up second in the pool behind Mexico because of goals scored. In the quarterfinals, Valley United jumped on Eagan Armada Azul early and kept piling it on for a 4-1 win. In the semifinals, Valley United edged out John Hampton from England 1-0 in a rain-shortened game. The biggest plus of playing at the USA Cup is the national competition. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tournament featured 942 teams from 20 states and 17 countries.

Valley Unitedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s strategy is to make its opponent adjust to them instead of the other way around. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always played a more direct style of play,â&#x20AC;? head coach Scott Johnson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our purpose is to score goals and make other teams adjust to us and have them change.â&#x20AC;? Players often watch European and Latin American soccer on television, so theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re aware of different styles throughout the world. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The international base is growing up with it and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still building in this country,â&#x20AC;? Johnson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see it as in-depth in this country. There are so many alternatives. â&#x20AC;? The core of the group has been together since U9 coached by both Johnson and Mark Obarski. Players come from several south metro cities, but the majority is the same group that helped Apple Valley High School win back-to-

back state titles in 2009 and 2010. Players such as David Rosenthal, Cory Winkler, Stephen Johnson, Kyle Webb, Simon Goettl, Tim Ness and Dan Schumacher combined forces for one last run at the USA Cup. They couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do it alone. Rosemountâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Brandon Wolf, Eastviewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s J.J. Zieminski and Lakeville Northâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Torbjorn Morkeberg and Colton and Mac Enderson, along with players from Bloomington, rounded out the lineup for Valley United. It was the last run for most of the players in amateur soccer. The majority of the players will begin college practice in a few weeks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Every single player has gone on to college,â&#x20AC;? Johnson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To me thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the bigger success story.â&#x20AC;?

Determining the value of their service or product is advised by this publication. In order to avoid misunderstandings, some advertisers do not offer employment but rather supply the readers with manuals, directories and other materials designed to help their clients establish mail order selling and other businesses at home. 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. All funds are based in US dollars. Toll free numbers may or may not reach Canada.

Snyder/from 1A thrilledâ&#x20AC;? by the boardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision. Not only because of the prospect of the position but because she will be able to be closer to her family. As she answered questions at the forum from audience members and during her final interview with the board, Snyder addressed a number of systemic issues. Snyder said that technology is not the key in every solution but it can go a long way. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need digital resources, digital problem solvers and digital solutions,â&#x20AC;? she said. Some of this comes down to policy issues. Bans on smartphones, for example, are aimed toward making policy for 1 percent of a population. That other 99 percent could benefit from more innovative implementa-

tion of technology. Another example, she said, was public meetings. Part of being a collaborative institution is being available to the public. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just say â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Come to a meeting on Thursday night.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; It doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always work for everybody,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need to think more innovatively about how to connect with people.â&#x20AC;? Skype, Facebook, blogs and others offer alternate ways of including the community in decisionmaking, she said. Beyond administrative uses, Snyder also believes in using technology for educational purposes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We live in a digital, global society,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They need to be able to go to (college) feeling comfortable utilizing digital tools.â&#x20AC;?

choose a candidate by July 22 and then spend this past week in contract negotiations. The intended start date is basically as soon as possible. Contract negotiations are closed to the public, but the resulting contract becomes available to the public once an agreement is made. One clause not to expect from Snyderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s contract is a severance payment. Former superintendent Gary Amoroso, whose decadelong tenure concluded July 1, received nearly $90,000, which proved controversial and which district-hired superintendent search firm School Exec Connect recommended not including in a future superintendent contract.

boring counties to reduce speed by as much as 15 percent. The lane narrowing, Petree said, has been proven to reduce speeds by at least two miles per hour on average. City council member consensus was in favor of this plan, which will cost about $31,000 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the signage will cost $27,000 and the restriping of the project area will cost $4,000. Petreeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s report indicates that to achieve the most effectiveness, the city would need to install four such signs â&#x20AC;&#x201C; two each on the northbound and southbound sides of Gerdine Path in the area in question. Money for the project would come from contingency funds out of the general fund, Petree said.

traffic on Flagstaff. He brought something else to the table â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a background in civil engineering, the branch of that field of study that trains people for positions such as city engineer. He had engineer-quality design suggestions, whether in the form of traffic-calming ideas or drawings. Actually, at that June 6 meeting, it was Johnson who proposed the idea of the driver feedback signs. He also suggested â&#x20AC;&#x153;bump-outs,â&#x20AC;? which are actual protusions of curbs into the road, but the paint-based lane-narrowing measures were deemed more feasible. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a unique situation,â&#x20AC;? Petree said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Collector roads in Lakeville donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t generally have driveways on them, especially in the newer parts of town.â&#x20AC;?

Mayor Mark Bellows, who also works with the police as a chaplain, agreed that Flagstaff traffic speeds have been excessive. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a perennial,â&#x20AC;? he said at that meeting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was on Flagstaff last night and we stopped a vehicle doing 77 in a 45.â&#x20AC;? Johnson and his neighbors will not have to worry as much now. After meeting with Johnson, Operations & Maintenance Director Chris Petree and city staff recommended at a Monday, July 25, council work session that the city council approve driver feedback signs and re-striping of fog lines to make the lanes narrower. The signs are equipped with a speed detector and display, so drivers will know How to advocate just how fast they are going When Johnson came to through Johnsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s neigh- that June 6 meeting, he did Aaron Vehling is at aaron.vehborhood.
