Garofalo considers running for Harris’ seat as Dakota County commissioner Pledges to announce his decision by early 2012 by Laura Adelmann

State Rep. Patrick Garofalo, R-Farmington, said Tuesday he is considering running for Joe Harris’ open seat on the Dakota County Board of Commissioners in 2012. Harris, who was first elected to the County Board in 1981, recently announced he will not seek re-election next year. He said he made the an-

nouncement now so potential candidates could have a chance to consider whether to seek the open seat. Garofalo, who was first elected to the Minnesota House in 2006 and this year was chair of the Education Finance Committee, said several people have encouraged him to run for the office, but declined to name names. He said working as an elected official at the county level ap-

peals to him for several reasons. An advocate of local control, Garofalo said he likes the idea of maintaining a “laser-like focus� on the community where he lives. “At the state, you’re dictating policy for 87 counties and hundreds of school districts,� Garofalo said, referring to some state legislative actions as “top-down control.� In addition, he said he likes See Garofalo, 10A

In an effort to save money in the long run, the city of Farmington may raise its levy by $1.3 million in 2012. Farmington City Council members discussed the proposed increase at a July 27 budget workshop. With money raised, a fund would be established to pay

for routine road maintenance projects and capital expenditures, avoiding future tax spikes or adding to the city’s debt burden. “Right now, we have to bond for all that stuff and it’s costing us a fortune,� Farmington Mayor Todd Larson said on Tuesday. If approved, in 2012 the levy increase would boost property

taxes by $164 for an average property valued at $199,800, according to the city. By establishing the fund, the city would end its decadesold process of assessing property owners for street sealcoating projects, and the schedule of keeping them in good repair would continue uninterrupted.

I decided to write my memoir, “Supermom: A Postpartum Anxiety Survival Storyâ€? six months after my release from the behavioral health unit in an effort to better understand what made me, an overachieving mom, lose my mind. In the year it took to write my story, I discovered many things. It was the best journey in self-discovery I could have ever made. I discovered that panic ��

attacks had happened to me before, many years ago, and I didn’t know what they were. I also learned that the unexplained paralysis of my legs that I had after the birth of my second child was actually a form of anxiety, a psychological condition called Conversion Disorder, in which someone’s anxiety transpires into a physical ailment. Through my book-writing journey, I began to realize that there wasn’t a lot of information out there about postpartum anxiety, making it difficult for numerous health practitioners to recognize my condition. My focus in my memoir began to take on a new form – to bring light to new moms and clinicians that postpartum mood disorders don’t always transpire like the widely-recognized sad, crying

As I sat in the windowsill of my hospital room in the behavioral health unit, I looked outside at the world around me. I saw familiar streets, ordinary people going to visit loved ones, cars driving by, even the downtown Minneapolis skyline in the background. These were all familiar sights that I’d seen a million times before, but life from inside these four walls looked very different. Most of the time I couldn’t remember the simplest things – like how to brush my teeth, take a shower, or comb my hair. The outside world seemed foreign now. I had to think about it really hard to even remember that I had a baby. My engorged and infected breasts were the only hint of reality – the reSee Author, 3A

State Sen. Dave Thompson will not run for U.S. Senate State Sen. Dave Thompson, R-Lakeville, will not seek the Republican Party endorsement for U.S. Senate in 2012, according to a July 29 press release. “I was truly surprised and honored when my name surfaced as a possible 2012 U.S. Senate candidate,� Thompson said in the release. “Over the last several weeks many people have encouraged me to take this opportunity seriously.

ality that I had too abruptly quit nursing. I was in a different place at this time in my life – one that I wasn’t sure I’d ever escape. My psychiatrist labeled me Supermom. He said, “The higher up you are, the farther you have to fall.� He characterized me as the woman who juggles so many things that I can no longer keep all of the balls in the air. “Sooner or later something’s going to tip,� he said. I had a hard time believing him at the time, but now I think he was wise beyond his words. I used to run around and try to be the perfect mother, wife, entrepreneur, employee, daughter, friend, sister, housekeeper, neighbor, event planner – the list goes on and on. I still do try to be all of those things, although now I’m more aware of my actions. Well, one day, my Supermom cape broke and I could no longer fly. I remember going to a birthday party with my oldest son, Evan. It was for one of his preschool classmates. His mother had meticulously arranged for everyone to sew an owl costume. I couldn’t even figure out how to assemble the darn thing. One of the other moms said, “And there goes Jen, pulling out her Supermom cape again.� I wanted to be like her. I wanted to have the perfect craft for my kid’s party too. I tried to have a really great fifth birthday party for Evan. I rented a huge tiger jumper, but it rained. I had planned for the kids to plant flowers, but none of them were interested. Nonetheless, the party wasn’t up to my Supermom expectations. Now I know

prize! As part of my Supermom persona, I like to have everything meticulously planned out. I want to be in control. Always. I hate the feeling of not having control. There is nothing that scares me more. But it seems like there’s this strange thing called life that seems to get in the way. The stomach flu, a car accident, an asthma attack, bad weather, or postpartum anxiety that shakes up my system. Why can’t these things be scheduled on my smart phone like everything else? I don’t deal well with the unexpected. After my daughter’s birth, more and more stressors entered my life and I tried to hold it all together and stay in control, but I lost it. It’s hard to admit, but I totally lost it. Sometimes I feel like I’ll lose it again, but I’m working on that. When postpartum anxiety/panic/psychosis hit me after having my third child, it was totally unplanned, unexpected, and it shook up my world like nothing else imaginable. Today I consider myself a postpartum anxiety survivor, but have come to the realization that I may suffer from generalized anxiety disorder for a lifetime. I recently tried to go off of my anti-anxiety medicine that I was prescribed after my daughter’s birth, and I found myself angry, easily irritated and unable to cope. While I hate relying on pills, I’ve come to the realization that it beats the alternative. My mission now is to provide education and awareness to the postpartum community.

La Semana bridges cultures for adoptees by Aaron Vehling THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

What if you were the only person who looked like you? Odd question, especially for those without twins. But think of it this way: What if you were the only person of your ethnicity in your community? In the early 1980s, as more Minnesotans began adopting from abroad, many were confronted with this question. Their Minnesota-raised children were part of white families and mostly white communities, but looked decidedly different. Jeaneen Wilhelmi, who adopted two Colombian children in the early 1980s, recognized the importance of the adoptees having some interaction and a relationship with other Latino kids. So Wilhelmi and some partners started La Semana, a cultural camp aimed at bridging the gap between cultures of origin and adopted cultures. “We wanted kids to have companions who looked like them,� Wilhelmi told me over the phone last week. “We kept saying, ‘How do we keep these kids in connection with their heritage?’ � La Semana (which is Spanish

for “the week�) is a weeklong recreational and educational program that has been held at different sites around the Twin Cities in its multiple decades of existence. It celebrated its 30th anniversary this past week at All Saints Catholic Church and Lakeville South High School. “The camp taught me as a very young person to not be ashamed of my adoption story and eclectic-looking family,� said Anna Wilhelmi Plachizaca, Jeaneen’s daughter. She got started with the camp when she was very young, but she remembers that idea running through her head.a The camp started out with 45 kids, all pre-K through seventh grade. The bonds developed amid the classrooms, Latin musical performances, food tastings and cultural lessons held strong. “The core families would go on vacations with each other,� Wilhelmi Plachizaca said. “We were even in each other’s weddings.� The situation is a bit different now. There are nearly 400 kids in the program, adopted from a variety of Latin American countries. Also, there are more Latino immigrants in Minnesota in general, so it’s not so much a matter of

the adoptees being one of a few among a sea of white. It’s more about adopted children with a semicommon background getting in touch with their roots. “All adopted children have a sense of abandonment in their psyche,� Wilhelmi said. “Most kids yearn for something to connect them to who they are.� Talking with the Wilhelmis made me think of some of my personal experiences. Growing up, I had a couple friends who were adopted from Korea by white families. One of them said she did not even think of herself as nonwhite until some kids at school made fun of her for “looking Chinese.� Minnesota has the highest number of Korean adoptees per capita in the world, according to a 2010 MinnPost story on the topic. There are centers that provide cultural trips for adoptees who want to visit the city in Korea in which they were born, and sometimes even the orphanage from which they came. I actually spent some time in Korea about five years ago. I was an English teacher in a city of about 2 million people. Here, that would be a big city. There, it was more like a Mankato-sized city in relation to Seoul, the capital.

Letters Seniors project moves ahead To the editor: I write this with thanks for the successful process and approval to proceed and utilize the old police station as a center for the Lakeville seniors, historical society and the Yellow Ribbon group.

It has been evident throughout the entire process that a majority of the membership of all groups has been very supportive of the concept. Many who are able have volunteered their time, talent and resources. Thank you to council members Matt Little, Laurie Rieb and Karen Swecker for their support which allows the project to proceed.

I am sure all seniors will join with me in asking for the support of the entire City Council and mayor as the project moves forward. We would like nothing more than the unity of all for a successful project and center that the community will be proud of. WALLY POTTER Lakeville

While I would not dream to know what these adoptees in America feel like being a minority, my experience in Korea has heightened my empathy toward them. I was one of a very small population of white people in a very homogenous area. The result was that everywhere I went people would do at least one of the following: stare, laugh, approach me and give me advice or just engage in friendly conversation. But sometimes it was negative, especially when people would act as if I were part of some Barnumesque experiment in public relations. The funny part is this would often happen in my neighborhood’s ubiquitous American chain establishments, so perhaps I was feeding into somewhat of a cliche. That said, I hadn’t had McDonald’s in six months, so I was interested in a taste of home. I emerged from these incidents basically unscathed – again, I don’t want to give the impression that I’m offering an analogous experience here – but it allowed me the luxury of even a percentage of an experience walking in someone else’s shoes. What becomes of those kids who go through La Semana? Wil-

helmi Plachizaca said that the camp, and its sister organization Parents of Latin American Children, engage in a number of activities that “teach philanthropy at an early age.� For example, at Christmas the kids will send gifts to the orphanages they came from. “I think that shaped a lot of us into who we are in our careers now,� she said. “Several of us are now in social services. I think it just gave us one more opportunity that most 7- and 8-year-olds don’t have: giving back to something larger than themselves.� It is perhaps this that makes La Semana so inspiring: It takes the tough questions about race, adoption, the self and one’s heritage and answers them for kids by being honest with them. And that manifests as good, old-fashioned selfless behavior. In an age in which Americans often genuflect before the idea of instant gratification for the benefit of the self, I find this comforting.

Principles of the principals in Minnesota schools by Joe Nathan

gents professorâ€? at the University of Minnesota, has talked with educators at the K-12 as well as college/ university level. She also conducted research on the ‘practical ethics’ that faculty members use in their research settings. She suggested: • “Every time you make an on-the-spot decision, you have to ask yourself whether you are creating an opportunity for harm.â€? • “Be fair, particularly in allocating opportunities and credit. In fact, be generous. I hardly ever work alone, and it is very important that others with whom I work have the chance to participate fully and be given public commendation for what they do. This is as true of students in classes as people who work with me as assistants.â€? • “Never fudge ‘data’ or try for quick fixes. I have been a teacher-leader at the university as well as a scholar. It is always tempting to put the end first, but the consequences are always terrible – usually for other people. This applies to grading, to classes that are not going as well as I wanted, to students who may be stumbling – as well as to research projects.â€? • “Always put yourself in the other person’s shoes – whether a student, a colleague, or a person who is cooperating in a research project.â€? Along with suggestions above that others offered, John Beach, principal of Princeton’s North Elementary wrote, “I don’t know if this is a principle, but an appropriate sense of humor really goes a long way in creating a comfortable, easygoing environment.â€? We (including me) don’t always succeed at being open, honest, and generous, mixed with a sense of humor. But I found it useful to ask others about their guiding principles. What are yours?

THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

With all the talk about political principles, I decided to ask several Rosemount and Eagan area principals and higher education leaders about their personal priorities. John Wollersheim, principal at Rosemount high school, wrote: “Minnesota’s Public Schools are here to serve our students and our communities. As a school leader, every decision we make should be focused on doing what is best for our students and then community. District and school goals should be focused on this same interest.â€? Ben Lewis, principal at Century Junior High in Forest Lake, agreed and described some of the challenges of the “what’s best for students philosophy.â€? “I think the most often ethic I rely on is to do what is best for a student or students in the situation and its various constraints. The catch is the last part ‌ budget, time, external demands often limit the options. In addition there are several interpretations on ‘what is best for students’ in any given context.â€? Joshua Alexander, principal at McGuire Middle School in Lakeville, said: “As principal, I consider myself a servant leader to my students, parents, staff and the Lakeville community. Servant leadership is the willingness to do any task in the organization that needs to be done. I work hard in every capacity to ensure the Lakeville Schools are doing everything possible to help our students learn. My decisions are driven by the needs of children, and what is best for them. I am here for every child because every child can learn. Being a building principal is not just a job, it is my passion and honor.â€? Paulette Reikowski, Eagan High School principal, responded by saying it’s “certainly important to think about this as we go through our day. I use personal integrity and try to model that behavior (being true to myself and my standards at all times) and respect for others regardless of culture, background, age, race, or gender.â€? Karen Seashore, a widely respected “re-

said seniors were not a core service. He said Little is misrepresenting his position. In previous council meetings, Bellows brought up the idea of working with area churches, gyms and senior housing facilities to offer senior center programming. Little said this was evidence that Bellows did not see a senior center as an important part of Lakeville. Bellows said, though, that he never said he didn’t want any senior center. “My point was if we are overcrowded we have to continue to decentralize,� he said. “Seniors had a recognition dinner for volunteers at the (Lakeville Area) Arts Center, that’s an example. We can’t build a facility that will accommodate the future number of seniors involved. We’re going to have to decentralize at some point. We can do that without it costing money.� Bellows then took issue with Little’s approach to advocating for the project. “He’s politicizing and pandering to seniors,� Bellows said. “What he’s done is create an incredible division among the council.� Wally Potter, treasurer for the Lakeville Area Historical Society, was pleased with Monday night’s vote. “I’m excited to see the thing going ahead,� he said. “I’ve been working on it a long time.�

August 5, 2011 THISWEEK

Sports Darwitz returns to the south metro, this time as a coach Olympian, Gopher and Eagan Wildcat Natalie Darwitz will take over as girls hockey head coach at Lakeville South by Andy Rogers THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

It’s rare when a high school coach is asked for an autograph. But as one of the top women’s hockey players in U.S. history, Natalie Darwitz has signed more than she can remember. Darwitz, with a long list of accomplishments that includes an Olympic silver medal and the all-time scoring record at the University of Minnesota, was introduced as the new Lakeville South varsity head coach at Hasse Arena on Tuesday night to players, parents and fans. “It’s not every day you can introduce a coach of this caliber to your program,� Lakeville South athletic director Neil Strader said. “She’s the Michael Jordan of women’s hockey.� After the introduction speeches, Darwitz worked her way through the crowd and hesitated on the autograph question. “I saw a couple kids I thought who were going to ask,� Darwitz said. “I don’t know how I was going to react. I don’t know if a coach should give out autographs. I want to set the standard that I’m the coach.�

Autographs or not, Darwitz has the experience on and off the ice to merit the coaching opportunity. She was a member of the U.S. Women’s hockey team at age 15 and spent three of the past four years in the coaching ranks with Eagan High School and the University of Minnesota. She played at the U of M until 2005 and served as an assistant in 2008-09 and 2010-11. She was captain for the U.S. Women’s team in the 2010 Olympics. So why leave a full-time Division I assistant coach position for Lakeville South? “I’ve been on the road since I was 15 and that doesn’t suit me anymore,� Darwitz said. “I’ll be around for Thanksgiving and Christmas now. I’m getting at the age where family is important to me. “The rivals are 10-15 minutes away now. You don’t have to drive five hours into Wisconsin.� She admits it’s a risky move, but in the end, she wants to work with high school players. “It’s what’s in my heart,� Darwitz said. “People have their opinions on whether I’m doing the right thing. Now my passion is Lake-

ville South.� Darwitz plans on coaching her team to win, but as a high school coach, she realizes she’s also molding young lives. “Obviously I want to win a state championship, but I want to instill values into these girls,� Darwitz said. “We’re going to become better hockey players, but we’re also going to become better friends and better people.� That’s a big reason she was an attractive hire for Strader. “She can teach life skills to these kids,� Strader said. “She traveled the world and played hockey at the highest level ... She’s phenomenal with kids.� Lakeville approached Darwitz first. There were some family connections, so Strader didn’t think it would hurt to ask. “We knew we’d kick ourselves if we didn’t try,� Strader said. Darwitz listened. “I wasn’t really on the market,� Darwitz said. “No one really considered me. I’m at the U and I’m tied down. I told them I would think about it and I think that surprised them.� Other schools heard she might be available, but Lakeville South stood out.

the college level, but you get there sometimes they have a chip on their shoulder or they’re a little arrogant.� Her memories from playing at Eagan from 1996-2000 when she scored 487 points in 102 games kept coming back. “I cherish my high school hockey days,� Darwitz said. “There’s nothing like winning the Photo by Andy Rogers section tournament Lakeville South athletic director and going to state.� Neil Strader, left, introduced Natalie It helped that Darwitz as the new Lakeville South her high school girls hockey coach at Hasse Arena on coach was her dad Tuesday.

At the same time we’re competitive people. It’s going to be a fun night.� They’ll see each other on the ice first on Dec. 10 with Lakeville South as the host and again on Jan. 21, 2012, at Eagan. Coaching the Cougars won’t take as much time as the Gophers, so she plans on returning to school to become a teacher. She hopes to teach in the Lakeville district. “I see myself as a mainstay here as part of the community,� Darwitz said. The first order of business is putting together a coaching staff. She spent the past week saying goodbye to the Gophers, which she said was hard. “I’m ready for the next step in my life,� Darwitz said. “I’m really excited.� Andy Rogers is at andy.rogers@ecm-inc.com.

Farmington City Council members recently approved several cost-cutting measures that will save the city time and money. Over $122,000 will be saved during the next seven years by refinancing 2003 bond debt originally issued to build the law enforcement center and cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s central maintenance facility. Interest on the initial $3.74 million bond was be-

And, working as a county official, Garofalo said, would allow him more time with his family. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Legislature is not family-friendly,â&#x20AC;? he said, referring to late-night floor sessions. Garofalo said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll announce his decision by early next year. Dakota County commissioners also work some night meetings, but unless thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a major disaster,

tween 2.95 percent and 3.65 percent, according to Farmington Finance Director Teresa Walters. The refinanced bond interest rate is 1.8043 percent, and will be repaid over seven years, said the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bond consultant, J. Bruce Kimmel, senior financial adviser and vice president of Ehlers, a Roseville public finance company. Farmington City Council members unanimously voted for the refinancing

plan Aug. 1. In addition, the council in July decided to institute paperless meetings, saving the cost of paper, ink and city staff time to deliver council packets to elected officials. While the savings will equate to about $3,800 annually on paper, interim City Administrator Kevin Schorzman said at the July 18 meeting that most of those savings will be realized by staff not having to prepare and See Savings, 11A

they would likely never interfere with a good nightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sleep. If Garofalo does not seek a fourth term as the District 36B state representative, he said he would not endorse a successor. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The people of our district donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like elected officials to tell them what to do,â&#x20AC;? Garofalo said. Last week, Harris said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d spoken to two individuals interested in running for the open seat; he declined to identify them, but said one was a man and the other a woman. Harris has also said he

would not make an endorsement for the open District 1 seat. The district includes Coates, Farmington, Hampton, Hastings, Lakeville Precinct 13, Miesville, New Trier, Randolph, Vermillion and Northfield Precinct 3. It also includes the townships of Castle Rock, Douglas, Empire, Eureka, Greenvale, Hampton, Marshan, Nininger, Randolph, Ravenna, Sciota, Vermillion and Waterford.

not pursue a franchise fee tax to be added onto utility bills, a controversial option to fund sealcoating that was debated a few months ago. Some residents opposed franchise fees because taxes would be paid to an unelected, unaccountable entity and would not allow residents the option of a deduction, as is available by adding the costs to the levy. During that debate, city officials expressed concern that the city would still need to borrow money temporarily to pay immediate expenses incurred by sealcoating. Council members said they want to avoid the city taking on more debt and adding interest to the cost of such routine and expected projects. Previously, the city used what was its â&#x20AC;&#x153;road and

of interest on that debt,â&#x20AC;? Schorzman said on Tuesday. Farmington plans to pay a total of $4.56 million in interest and principal payments on its debt during 2012, but not all of that money will be derived from the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tax levy, according to Schorzman. The public will have several opportunities to learn about potential plans and options for the 2012 budget during the coming months. People will have opportunities to provide input throughout the process. By Sept. 15, the council will set its preliminary 2012 budget and maximum property tax levy. The amount can be reduced but not increased until the boardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s final adoption of the budget in December.

With the levy option, the fund would be more like a savings account and projects would be paid for up front. According to Finance Director Teresa Walters, the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s debt totals $38.3 million, more than four times Farmingtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s current budget of $8.56 million. At the workshop, interim City Administrator Kevin Schorzman noted the recent $2.4 million Walnut Street reconstruction project will cost the city $800,000 in interest payments (of 3.4 percent) over the next 15 years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not suggesting that cities can operate without incurring debt, but this is an example of the magnitude

Most council members first used iPads at the Aug. 1 meeting, helping each other to navigate the new electronic tools before and after the televised meeting. Purchased for $2,995, the iPads are city property and will be returned by council members at the end of their term in office.

Young actors take spotlight in â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Beauty and the Beast Jr.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s production runs Aug. 11-13 at Burnsville PAC by Andrew Miller THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

Matthew Loydâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s costume has plenty of flair but one small drawback. Cast as the singing, anthropomorphic clock Cogsworth in â&#x20AC;&#x153;Disneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Beauty and the Beast Jr.,â&#x20AC;? the 14-year-old Burnsville resident says his boxy, bulky costume â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which includes a giant key protruding from his back and a pendulum dangling from his chest â&#x20AC;&#x201C; took some getting used to, especially offstage. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The hardest thing is getting through doors,â&#x20AC;? he said. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all part of the learning process, though, for Loyd and the 50-some other young actors in the classic Disney musical, which will be presented Aug. 11-13 at the Burnsville Performing Arts Center. The show is being staged by The Playâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the Thing Productions, the company of Dayna Railton of Lakeville.

Railton says the goal of her shows is to give south-ofthe-river students a chance to get familiar with theater and all the challenges, and fun, that come with it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They learn focus, musicality, articulation, what kind of physicalities appeal to an audience, their position on stage and how it affects the entire show,â&#x20AC;? Railton said. Along with learning the nuts and bolts, â&#x20AC;&#x153;these are lifetime experiences theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll cherish their whole lives,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s magical.â&#x20AC;? The child cast and paid adult crew have been rehearsing four hours a day, five days a week for the past three weeks at Eagle Ridge Junior High in Savage, in anticipation of their move to the Burnsville venue next week. Railton said â&#x20AC;&#x153;Disneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Beauty and the Beast Jr.â&#x20AC;? is the biggest childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s theater project sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s undertaken since founding The

Playâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the Thing two and a half years ago. The show has a two-story set, elaborate costumes and professional props rented from Chanhassen Dinner Theater and other groups. The production will be presented on the main stage in the Burnsville arts centerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 1,000-seat proscenium theater. By childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s theater standards, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a massive auditorium to fill, but Railton said her production of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Annie Jr.â&#x20AC;? last summer at the same venue drew about 600 people per show. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what it is â&#x20AC;&#x201C; people come out in droves,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Disneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Beauty and the Beast Jr.â&#x20AC;? will be presented at 7 p.m. Aug. 11 and 13, and 1 p.m. Aug. 12. Tickets are $13 for adults, $11 for students and senior citizens, and are available at www. burnsvillepac.com.

The April Verch Band, a fiddle-driven Canadian roots-music trio, will be the headlining act at Eagan Market Fest on Wednesday, Aug. 10.
