Five Lakeville teens arrested for hate crimes, damages Slurs such as ‘white power’ were spray-painted on a car, other property by suspects tracked down by police by Aaron Vehling THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

Tyra Jaramillo (left), Erin Lunz, Pieper Walton and Heidi Lambrecht are all smiles anticipating Tuesday’s start of the new school year, as announced on the Robert Boeckman Middle School sign in Farmington. As Yearbook Committee members, the eighth-graders also plan to be busily documenting it. Parent Martha Jaramillo said she is looking forward to school starting “so the kids have something to do and are tired at night.”

The Lakeville Police Department arrested five Lakeville teens last week for a series of racist vandalism acts they allegedly perpetrated on an African-American woman and her family. After a few incidents, police were able to track down the teens, all of whom confessed to their involvement in the crimes. “We will pursue charges to the fullest extent of law,” Police Chief Tom Vonhof said. Because they involve juveniles, the cases will be sent to the Dakota County Attorney’s Office.

‘Bias crimes’ At about 1 a.m. on Aug. 18, Vonhof said, police re-

ceived a call that there was racist graffiti and damage to a vehicle at a Lakeville townhome. There were no witnesses and police did not see any suspects. According to KARE 11, the graffiti on the car, the garage door and the walls inside the garage said “white power.” The woman, named Tanesha, told KARE 11 she moved in May to Lakeville from north Minneapolis to seek a better environment for her eight children. Her neighbors have been welcoming, she told the television station. To help her kids become acclimated with Lakeville she changed her hours at a medical device company. A few nights after the Aug. 18 incident, Tanesha called police again. She

reported that a vehicle drove by the house slowly with its passengers yelling racial obscenities at her. She did not get a license number, but she did offer a rough description of the vehicle: It was a dark-colored minivan. Lakeville police officers, who, Vonhof said, pursue crimes like this intensely, were able to locate the minivan within 24 hours. “They thought that because of the nature of the crime, (the vehicle) must be relatively close by,” Vonhof said. “Obviously, in this type of crime we really went after this.” When the officers tracked down each of the five teens, all of them confessed to their involveSee Teens, 7A

Yellow Ribbon adds McKnight takes reins of familiar territory Farmington city budget one of McKnight’s top priorities clout to Heritage Center project by Laura Adelmann THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

Facility will be central location for veterans organization’s services by Aaron Vehling THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

As the plans for the Heritage Center became more concrete last spring, it appeared that the participating parties would be the Senior Center and the Lakeville Area Historical Society. During these discussions, though, a parallel dialogue was taking place among members of the Lakeville Yellow Ribbon organization. “We were looking for a central spot to run some programs,” said Lindy Kes, who was among the original members of the group. The Yellow Ribbon organization entered talks with the other two parties and the new partnership was born. Yellow Ribbon offered to sponsor the commercial kitchen for the new Heritage Center, which will occupy space on Holyoke Avenue, across from City Hall, that used to serve as Lakeville’s police station. The estimated contribution is about $27,000, which Kes said the group can raise now that the City Council voted last month to officially approve the project. Tom Hilla, who was active duty in the Navy from 2001-2009, is also part of Yellow Ribbon. He sees his organization’s participation as the essential third peg, combining three organizations that all relate to each other in beneficial ways. Some of the programming Yellow Ribbon wants to provide, such as helping veterans reenter civilian life and access services available to See Heritage Center, 7A

As far as anyone at City Hall can recall, David McKnight is Farmington’s first homegrown city administrator, a role he was just getting used to during his first day on the job Monday, Aug. 29. His first actions included meetings with administrative staff and organizing his desk. “I got in at eight, and we did normal first-day stuff,” McKnight said. But, McKnight is already mindful of the important work ahead. His priority projects this week are to become familiar with the city’s budget details and to prepare information packets for the Farmington City Council’s Sept. 6 meeting. In the next few weeks, he plans to discuss with Farmington City Council members their goals for the 2012 budget, then determine how staff can provide what is needed to meet those goals. Recently, council members discussed passing a budget that includes a debt-reduction plan. The plan would raise property taxes eight times in the next 12 years, using the funds to reduce, then eliminate, $38.3 million of debt over the next few decades. The plan

Owning a home and holding a good job that pays well enough to afford it all are among the cornerstones of the American Dream. But what happens when a person loses those? The home, the one that was to bring equity and house a family, enters foreclosure. The job, the source of income behind all of this, dissipates into the ethers of recession.

turbing case,” said Dakota County Attorney James Backstrom, “the likes of which we simply haven’t seen before.” Backstrom said his office has dealt with parents under stress and a threat to their children, “but it is rare for someone to pack up and leave the state like this.” Unemployed architect Cross, in a letter to his son, cited this dissolution of the American

Dream as the motive behind his decision to leave his son. According to court reports, the letter to his son read: “If this paper is wet it’s because I am crying so bad. You know your dad loves you more than anything.

Sometimes the obliteration of a certain way of life can push people to extremes of desperation, as apparently was the case with Steven Alexander Cross, 60, of Lakeville, who was Steven arrested Monday after- Cross noon in Cambria, Calif., on charges that he abandoned his 11-year-old son with a neighbor in Lakeville and fled town. “This is an unusual and dis-

ington City Council member, said he plans to learn more about the plan, but added that debt reduction is “always good.” “The council has to come to a decision on how to do it,” McKnight said. City Council members are

considering the debt reduction plan as part of its 2012 budget process and have not passed it yet, although a majority of council members have indicated preliminary support for the plan during budget workshops. Other priorities on his schedule this week were to meet staff working in locations outside of City Hall, such as police officers and maintenance workers, and to begin establishing relationships with business members, school district officials and city residents. McKnight, a lifelong citizen of Farmington and Farmington High School graduate, already has many relationships and contacts in the city. In June, when he was unanimously selected as the next city administrator by the council, McKnight’s local connections and his heart for his hometown were some of the qualities that set him apart from other applicants. McKnight’s extensive experience was likewise an important factor in the decision. During an interview, McKnight expressed his eagerness to work in the city where he grew up; at the time, he was the administrator of Mendota Heights, a position he had held since November 2009.

About 30 parents attended meetings on class size issue by Laura Adelmann THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

!"#$#%!

New Farmington Schools Superintendent Jay Haugen discussed class-size concerns with parents during two Aug. 25 meetings. This one drew a dozen district parents and was held at Farmington Elementary School; about 20 parents attended a later meeting at Meadowview Elementary. mer teacher, suggested that instead of pulling students out classrooms for accelerated or remedial work, a district she worked in used team-teaching and block scheduling to address needs. Under block scheduling, students have fewer classes for longer periods of time. She said it was more efficient and allowed studentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; questions to be answered. The students were divided academically, so those who were ready to go ahead could excel and others who needed more time had the opportunity to grasp the concepts before moving on. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ultimately, when I say we have to solve it ourselves, these are the kinds of things weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to have to do,â&#x20AC;? Haugen said. While new students increase the districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s perpupil funding, Haugen emphasized caution.

He said one-time federal funding is drying up, and he expects the district to have a $700,000 budget deficit next year. Haugen added that if the district hires more teachers this year, the cost will add to the deficit next year. He added that he expects no help from the state, calling its budget situation that led to a shutdown earlier this year â&#x20AC;&#x153;a fiscal mess,â&#x20AC;? and referred to the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recent budget-balancing plan as kicking multiple cans down the road. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They borrowed $2.4 billion from schools in this state. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the only reason they have a balanced budget,â&#x20AC;? Haugen said. At both meetings, worried parents cited concerns over student achievement and test scores, offering to volunteer in the classroom. See Haugen, 6A

At two public meetings Aug. 25, new Farmington Schools Superintendent Jay Haugen told district parents concerned about class size it will take team effort to solve the problems. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have to work together, because weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not going to get help,â&#x20AC;? Haugen said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If we want to make sure our students stay in relatively small learning groups, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to have to do it with us right here.â&#x20AC;? The districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s latest projections show it will have 214 students more than planned when school begins Sept. 6, a change that pushes some class sizes past limits allowed under district policy. According to the district, some middle school and high school classes would include 35 students and some elementary school classes are in the high 20s; a few are estimated at 29. Exact student numbers arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t known because district residents are more likely to inform schools when students are coming rather than going; actual class sizes wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be known until school starts Sept. 6. To address high class sizes, the district has one additional full-time-equivalent position left to be assigned. Consideration is being given to creating two halftime teaching positions at the schools with the highest class sizes. The teachers would help during core classes such as science, reading and math. Other ideas are for students to be divided into smaller groups. One parent at the first meeting offered an solution that Haugen told the second group of parents he was going to pursue.

Opinion Thisweek Columnists

Crime is not our first (or second) priority Larry Werner THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

On todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s front page, Lakeville Editor Aaron Vehling recounts the sad story of a troubled man who left a note for his 11-yearold son that Dad was overwhelmed and was leaving town. That story, covered extensively by virtually all of the metro and community media, has provoked a discussion in our newsroom about the role crime news should play at Thisweek Newspapers. What obligation do we have to tell you about all the terrible things that go on in Dakota County? As the news staff will point out, I am the one who is asking why we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get a particular crime story first. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m the one who sends links daily to our community editors for crime stories other media have. But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time for a confession: In my 42 years as a journalist, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never liked crime news. Early in my career, while

working the night shift at a newspaper in Louisville, Ky., I was sent to the scene of a murder. The body was gone from the inner-city apartment where the murder had taken place, and so were the police. But the apartment door was open, and I went in. As I looked at the blood on the carpet and reflected on the fact that someone had died a violent death here, a man walked in. He was the father of the murder suspect. I could sense his anguish that his boy had done something evil. That encounter has never left me over 40 years of writing about crime and assigning reporters to crime stories. Behind those stories are family breakdowns, mental illness, chemical dependency and economic desperation. Consider this comment posted on ThisweekLive.com after Aaron reported the story of the abandoned Lakeville boy: â&#x20AC;&#x153;So the police and authorities are looking for a destitute man

who left his son so they can prosecute him and throw him in jail, further traumatizing the kid.â&#x20AC;? It was one of three comments posted by readers who said it is clearly wrong for Steven Cross to have left his son, but â&#x20AC;&#x153;the mediaâ&#x20AC;? should consider the economic circumstances that lead people to do bad things. Life isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t as simple as crime headlines suggest. Every week we write about parents abusing children, friendly gatherings turning violent when someone drinks too much, marital disputes escalating into assaults. Not only are we covering these stories, but so are the TV stations and metro papers that have discovered Dakota County and want to find news here. We canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ignore the ugly things that happen in Lakeville, Burnsville, Eagan, Farmington, Rosemount and Apple Valley. But we have to be careful we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t present you with a distorted picture of life in our cities. A former editor of mine said

it was his goal to publish a front page that gave a fair summary of what was happening in the community. If we spend too much time covering crime, we might not be reflecting daily life as itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s being lived. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Honors pile high for leader in field of developmental disability,â&#x20AC;? read a headline in last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Thisweek Burnsville-Eagan. John Gessner, our Burnsville editor, told the story of Colleen Wieck, a local resident who has spent 30 years as executive director of the Governorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Council on Developmental Disabilities. Jessica Harper, our Eagan editor, told you about Kristen Capel, who will become the first female lead pastor of Easter Lutheran Church. And Aaron Vehling wrote a nice profile of retiring Lakeville City Engineer Keith Nelson. Those are stories we enjoy writing more than the stories about crime. They are stories that more accurately reflect life here than stories about bad things

happening to Dakota County people. Tad Johnson, our managing editor, said crime news is his third priority. First is government news, which includes what our city councils and school boards do. Second is the broad category of â&#x20AC;&#x153;human interest,â&#x20AC;? which includes stories about the people, places and events that constitute the fabric of community life. Third, he said, is crime. We canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ignore it, but we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t plan to let it dominate our front pages or our website. If we do, Thisweek will be acting more like a visitor to the community than a neighbor. And we like being neighbors, as this newspaper company has been since 1884.

With welfare of kids at stake, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ignore bullying by Don Heinzman THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

As opening of school approaches, parents should heed the warning that students are being bullied by other students physically, verbally and on social media. Despite school policies on bullying, some students, particularly gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transgenders, are being bullied. Worsening the problem is cyberbullying, done by students anonymously over social media and outside school hours. Parents need to get involved and tell their students bullying is wrong and warn they will not back them if they are bullies.

According to Dakota County Attorney Jim Backstrom, who lectures on the dangers of bullying, 80 percent of parents in society donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see bullying as a concern. Backstrom says that bullying is an early form of aggressive, violent behavior and points out that 60 percent of bullies have a criminal record by the time they are 20. Parents also need to be concerned because their children could be the ones bullied. Backstrom says that 75 percent of kids at one point in their lives have been bullied. He also tells parents that as many as 160,000 children miss school every day in America for fear of being

bullied. Parents generally regard bullying as something natural, preferring to let it be a boys-will-be-boys and girls-will-be-girls matter. Some parents even suggest that if their child is picked on, the child should strike back. Backstrom says this is bad advice and only irritates the bully. Parents also are advised not to take lightly their childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s complaint about getting bullied in school. They immediately should listen to their child, assure their support and contact school authorities and alert them to the problem. Delaying and brushing off the complaint will only cause the victim to withdraw, which could lead to

  

                

    ďż˝ 

    

            �  ��  �                         

other problems, including suicide. Parents first should notify the classroom teacher and expect results. If they fail to get cooperation, Backstrom says, parents should take the matter all the way up to the school superintendent and the school board, if necessary. School officials are telling staff that bullying and harassment of students will not be tolerated. Guided by official school policies, the bullies eventually could be expelled from school. Backstrom says he has found that school officials want to stop any bullying and protect the safety of all children. Regarding cyberspace bullying on social media, parents of a bul-

lied student should go to the parents of anyone bullying online. Furthermore, Backstrom said if their children are harassed and threatened they should report it to the police, because harassment, stalking and terroristic threats are against state law. Parents must take the bullying of their child seriously and act on the matter immediately, because their childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s welfare is at stake.

Letters So why not get that American flag back out and fly it proudly daily like we should? Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a U.S. Air Force handicapped/disabled veteran and would love to be able to fly the American flag along with the Air Force flag every day if I could. However, the building where I live doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t allow it, but it does have a flagpole and a flag flying every day proudly. I would like to thank those who fly a flag and keep it up. Thanks again for flying proudly Old Glory and may we continue to do so. God bless each and every one and the United States of America.

A suggestion for smokers

Where are the flags?

To the editor: While driving 150 miles around the metro area each day on my job, I notice that smokers have their windows rolled down some and their cigarettes hanging out the windows. Cigarettes are expensive. Smokers should realize they would get more value out of their purchase if they would close the window and get all the more smoke and nicotine captured in their lungs. Then their cigarette smoke wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t float back to my car, which is behind them at the stop light. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to breathe their smoke.

To the editor: Something has been bothering me for a while with many of the residents in Farmington and in the surrounding area. What bothers me is back on 9/11 you couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t find an American flag to buy within 50 miles, most likely because everybody bought one and they were flying them proudly. I think that is great, and I personally thank them for doing it. Now here it is 2011, and when I get around town I hardly see any of those flags flying so proudly anymore. What, are we not still at war? We still have young men and women fighting DOUG TAUBE over there, and some have Farmington not made it home safely, sorry to say.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our community is wonderful, and donations always seem to come when the need is the greatest,â&#x20AC;? she said in an email, mentioning that local gardeners donate fresh produce. Mayorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cup event coordinator Denny Barlau said many Dakota County residents are relying on food shelves to help feed their families in this struggling economy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I deal with all the food agencies, and thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of proud people out there who have lost their jobs and they canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford to feed their families without using the food shelves,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m on such a mission.

Larson added the Race for Hunger is a unique, fun way to fund raise. A few weeks ago he and others in the race took some trial runs around the track. Mayors and elected officials showed their competitive spirit in videos that can be viewed by clicking on â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Mayorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cupâ&#x20AC;? tab at www.clickclubusa.com.

Lee said, adding that the board is working to figure out the best way to manage without setting the district up to make it worse next year. Haugen told parents Farmington is in better shape than other metro districts, where class sizes of 35 to 37 are not unusual.

Still, he said, in Farmington creative ways are needed to divide students into smaller groups. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We all agree that our class sizes are too large. We need to have students learning in smaller groups,â&#x20AC;? he said, promising more information and meetings about the topic in the future.

But for a returned veteran who is no longer active duty, â&#x20AC;&#x153;they canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get back on base,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So this is an opportunity to serve those additional vets.

For example, Hilla said people will help deployed sol-

tively rare in Lakeville. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very unusual,â&#x20AC;? Vonhof said, adding that these types of crimes have a particularly noxious character. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It really affects the whole community: The victimization, threatening and intimidating aspect of it.â&#x20AC;? It was to combat such intolerance that the Peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Fair in Lakeville was formed more than a decade ago, said, Renee Brekken, enrichment & marketing manager for Lakeville Community Education. She serves on the Peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Fair Committee.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reflective of the Lakeville community by any means,â&#x20AC;? Brekken said of the crimes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Still, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very sad.â&#x20AC;? Tanesha told KARE 11 that the events have instilled profound levels of fear in her family. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They stripped me of my sense of comfort,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now we have to keep the lights on, keep every door locked and keep the children indoors.â&#x20AC;?

diersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; spouses with essential chores such as cooking and cleaning. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But with the Veterans Center weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to attract younger members and families of people being deployed,â&#x20AC;? Hilla said. This means bringing Veterans Administration representatives to a central place to teach classes on how to purchase a home, or even offer some computers with helpful websites bookmarked for those who have no Internet access at home. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some vets donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get the right answers on how to use their benefits,â&#x20AC;? Hill said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know how to take advantage of the benefits theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve earned

by serving their country.â&#x20AC;? Hill even talked about the possibility of hosting Skype sessions between family members at home and their loved ones deployed abroad. The project kickoff event is 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 10, at the Heritage Center site. The city intends for the project to be complete by fall 2012.

Young Tiger soccer team aiming to stay above .500 Boys soccer team has high expectations for 2011 by Andy Rogers THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

The Farmington girls soccer team has finished with a record above .500 for the past two seasons, and players would like to see that continue. Ashley Kimmell leads the list of returning players. She’s already scored five goals in the team’s first three games. She’s joined by Kelli Harstad and Rachel Beck along with several underclassmen. “We are very young,” coach Rob Carpentier said. “We will have at least 10 sophomores and freshmen seeing significant minutes, including between the pipes.” He praised the team’s overall speed and footskills and hopes the team builds chemistry as the season progresses. The girls opened with a 6-0 win against Faribault. At the Prior Lake tournament last weekend, the girls defeated Waconia 3-1 but lost to Prior Lake 1-0. On Tuesday, the girls lost 2-0 to Apple Valley.

Tigers boys A strong senior class should make for a competitive season for the Farmington boys soccer team in 2011. It could use one. The Tigers have 14 victories in the past three years without breaking the .500 barrier. Keeper Chad Stivers, who was one of the save leaders in the state in 2010, should keep the team in just about every game. “He racked up the saves last year and can be credited for making our six wins possible and for keeping our games close by stopping some pretty tough shots last year,” head coach Julian Buss said.

Lakeville South athletic events rescheduled due to poor field conditions by Andy Rogers THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

kickoff event as well as the boys soccer alumni game last week, school officials decided to sod the field on Friday. “It was obvious to us our summer field prep was not successful,” Lakeville South athletic director Neil Strader said. “It was not safe for athletes. In order to give our field the opportunity to grow back, we’ll need two to three weeks to create some sort of root base to play on.” Lower-level events do not change from their original time or location. The following varsity level games will be played at a different location:

Several athletic events for the next two weeks will be played at different locations because the Lakeville South stadium field has been deemed unplayable for varsity events. Out of concern for the safety of the players, games have been moved to Lakeville North High School. The stadium field at Lakeville South is scheduled to reopen Sept. 16.

Soccer: Panthers eye return trip to state tourney Lakeville North boys soccer shooting for more goals in 2011 by Andy Rogers THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

The Lakeville North boys soccer team had one of the most exciting finishes for any team in the state last season. The team won the Section 1AA title by beating Lakeville South 1-0 and went on to beat Bloomington Jefferson in a shootout in the state quarterfinals before giving eventual state champion Apple Valley a serious run in the semifinals. The Panthers return a healthy portion of that lineup, including goalkeeper Connor Revsbeck, leading scorer Tyler David and leading defender Colton Enderson. Revsbeck was a big rea-

son for the success last year, allowing less than a goal per game, including eight shutouts. “Connor is one of the top goalkeepers I have ever coached or watched play at this level,” head coach Pete Tyma said. “He should be considered for all-state and I hope some colleges are watching him. He has the frame and intelligence to play at a very high level with success.” But Tyma is tempering the enthusiasm just a bit. “We have a lot of work ahead of us to get there and with our competitive section,” Tyma said, “it is really too early to anticipate anything.” The trouble last year was

scoring and it’s not going to get any easier with one of their leaders, Torbjorn Morkeberg, now graduated. The Panthers will look to Rami Benitez and Joey Decklever to score more goals along with Ahmad Essawy and Alex Amborn. “The players are definitely excited but focused,” Tyma said. “Last year, we had no expectations of going as far as we did. This year, I sense a dedication to getting back to where we ended last year from the players.” The Panthers got a look at some Section 1AA opponents early with a 1-0 win over Rochester Mayo and a tie with Farmington 0-0 last See Soccer, 9A

Cougar volleyball sets expectations high as ever Loaded lineup looking for a breakthrough in 2011 by Andy Rogers THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

With nine returning varsity players for the Cougars volleyball team, Lakeville South coach Jennifer Nelson has an ultimate goal of playing at the state tournament. “We have very high hopes this year for our returning squad,” Nelson said. So far things have gone as planned. The girls have defeated Northfield, Rochester Century and Visitation, along with a 3-1 victory against Chaska on Tuesday. One reason for the success is the fact that several

of the girls are talented enough they already have plans to play at college. Middle blocker Monica Turner (University of Minnesota-Duluth) and outside hitter McKell Anderson (Southwest Minnesota State) have been starting on the team since they have been freshmen and were both all-conference selections last season with McKell earning South’s first all-state award. Middle blocker Kaitlin VanWinkle (University of Minnesota-Moorhead) is a returning all-conference honorable mention selection in the middle. Setters

Allie Mosser and Jazzmyn Tingelhoff are ready to direct the offense. “The goal is to stay healthy and have fun,” Nelson said. “With this group of seniors, we would like to end with the best year yet.” Defensive specialist Elle Roesner is back from a late- season knee injury. She joins outside hitter Jessica Saba and middle blocker Megan Heimerman on the list of experienced varsity players. They’ll get some reinforcement from the middle school ranks. Jade Tingelhoff was pulled up to the See Volleyball, 9A

Lakeville South’s Mikayla Jacobson, No. 10, heads the ball against Owatonna on Tuesday at the Lakeville North stadium. The teams tied 1-1. All varsity games scheduled to be played in the Lakeville South stadium until Sept. 16 will be played at either Lakeville North or the respective visitors. Lakeville South qualified for state for the sixth time in five years in 2010 and aim to return again. Rival Lakeville North improved to 2-0 on Tuesday, besting Rochester John Marshall 7-0.

‘Unselfish’ Panther girls soccer team seeks state berth Lakeville North girls’ sights set on winning section by Andy Rogers THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

probably score a lot of goals individually, but her assists are higher than the goals. She does the difficult work to make sure there is a goal. She’s very unselfish.” Goalkeeper Alexis Joyce, who is one of the top hockey players in the state, will be ready when the shots come. The Panthers have done everything as a group. Linde has asked every player to defend and asks the defenders to play forward. “We can cut out counter attacks really well,” Linde said. “With a small roster, every single player understands they’re going to play a large part of the game.” “We want to do as well as we can in the South Suburban Conference, but we’d like to be healthy and moving well for that first section game,” Linde said. “To play in the state tournament, I like their chances.”

The Lakeville North girls soccer team played perhaps as well as any team could during its first two games of the season. The girls defeated North St. Paul 6-1 and Rochester John Marshall 7-0. Their opponents took just two shots on goal in each game. “I would say they’ve been about as good as a soccer team can get at this age,” coach Josh Linde said. The dominant theme so far has been unselfishness. No one has scored more than one goal per game. “They’re wonderfully skilled individuals and exceptionally unselfish,” Linde said. Senior captains Gracia Bonesho, Taylor Brownrigg and Solena CavalliSinger lead a veteran lineup along with junior Simone Kolander. “(Kolander) is the one that gets a lot of attention because she’s a dyRogers is at namic player,” Linde said. Andy “A player like her would andy.rogers@ecm-inc.com.


THISWEEK September 2, 2011

Soccer/from 8A weekend. Against Rochester Century on Tuesday, the Panthers won 2-0.

Lakeville South Coming off a 9-10-2 season where the Lakeville South boys soccer team played in the Section 1AA final, the Cougars would like to build off their strong finish. Several of the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top players have returned to the field, including Sid Smith, Jaco Seibert, Cody RainVolleyball/from 8A varsity roster late last season and she should make an impact on the right side. Tingelhoff trained with the USA Volleyball team at the 14â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s level in the offseason. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She will mostly be hitting for South, but also is a high level setter looking to both set/hit in the future,â&#x20AC;? Nelson said. The girls have a bit of a break now before they play at the Aerie Challenge next weekend at Apple Valley.

Lakeville North Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been eight months since Lakeville North won the state volleyball tournament and much has happened.

ford, Marcus Vievering, Andrew Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Rielly, Jordan Stotlz and Ian Bird. As a group, the goal is to control the middle and attack from multiple positions, while keeping a tight mark on defense. Coach Peter Benson said he would like to see consistent improvement leading up to a section championship. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have many players with a lot of varsity experience,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Benson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We also have a strong group of senior leaders who are posi-

tive role models.â&#x20AC;? The offense might take a few kicks to get moving after losing both forwards and the top backups to graduation. So far itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been mixed. The Cougars managed a 4-0 victory against Rochester John Marshall in the season opener, but tied with Rochester Mayo 0-0 last weekend. On Tuesday, the boys won 1-0 against Owatonna.

First, longtime head coach Milan Mader has retired and assistant Doug Bergman stepped down. Kellie McNeil, considered the top setter in the country, graduated and now plays for the University of Minnesota. Her sister, Taylr McNeil, who also committed to the Gophers, moved to Eagan. Quite the change for a team looking to make another run, but several athletes and coaches were ready to step in. New head coach Steve Willingham has taken over a team loaded with talent. Seniors Kelly Nizzari, Nicole Latzig and Jessica Wolff along with all-state sophomore Alyssa Goehner and Abby Monson have re-

grouped with another powerful lineup. Put Goehner in the â&#x20AC;&#x153;weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be fineâ&#x20AC;? camp. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m excited to show everyone we were never based off one player or two or three,â&#x20AC;? Goehner said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the whole team. If we bond together and have fun, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll do great.â&#x20AC;? The Panthers defeated Bethlehem Academy, traditionally one of the top teams in Minnesota, 3-0 on Tuesday. Next weekend the girls will head to southwestern Minnesota for the first of many prestigious volleyball tournaments in Marshall.

Lindell Roy, Allan age 88 of Apple Valley, went to his eternal rest and Master on Aug. 19, 2011. He is preceded in death by his parents, Gustav and Alfrida Lindell; survived by his loving wife of 64 years, Elaine; children, Robert (Delphina Souza), Charlotte (Rick) Green, Barb (Bob) Behan, Richard (Janice Anderson) and Ralph (Mona Selim) Lindell; 10 grandchildren and 1 great granddaughter. Allan will be deeply missed by his family and friends. Allan (yes he went by his middle name) was born March 17, 1923 , in St. Paul, MN. He was the only child of Alfrida Charlotta (nee: Berglund) and Bror Gustav Lindell, immigrant Swedes that came to America to escape the terrible famine that gripped Sweden. Allan worked for the railroad for over 30 years, interrupted only by his military service in the U.S. Army during WWII. Early in his career he saw the railroad transitioning from steam locomotives to diesel electric locomotives, so he took the initiative to take home study courses in electronics from DeVry Institute. As his career progressed he moved his family roughly every 6 years, going to St. Paul, MN, westward to Staples, MN, up to East Grand Forks, MN, then southward to Moorhead, MN, then back to Staples, and finally over to Superior, WI, where he retired as the foreman of Locomotives. Allan loved fishing (he even made time for some fishing on his honeymoon), canoeing, camping, family vacations and reunions, bowling, and doing home improvements. He sang in the church choir, was active in Gideonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bible Society, but most of all he loved his wife and family. A special thank you to the Centennial House Staff in Apple Valley, the St. Jude Hospice Program and the pastoral care staff at Grace Lutheran Church. Funeral Services will be held 11 AM on Thursday (8/25) at Grace Lutheran Church, 7800 Co. Rd. 42., Apple Valley with visitation on Wednesday from 5-8pm at the White Funeral Ho me , 1 4 5 6 0 Pennock Ave., Apple Valley (952 432 2001) also 1 hr prior to Service at Church.

September 2, 2011 THISWEEK

Times/from 1A In addition to the loss of his home and a lack of income, Cross also faced about $25,000 in judgments against him, according to court records.

Abandonment On the morning of July 18, Cross was gone and his son was â&#x20AC;&#x201C; note in hand and crying â&#x20AC;&#x201C; was at the doorstep of neighbors John and Joanne Pahl, who called the Lakeville Police Department a couple hours later when it was clear that Cross was really gone. The Pahls declined to offer Thisweek any comment on the case. Crossâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s son had letters to the Pahls as well. In them,

Cross asked the family to take guardianship of his son. With $1,000 in his pocket, Cross was driving westward toward San Luis Obispo County on the Central Coast of California, about four hours south of San Francisco and threeand-a-half-hours north of Los Angeles. Lakeville Police scoured his computer and learned he had reservations at a hotel in Morro Bay for Aug. 1. Crossâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision to leave surprised his son and the Pahls, according to the criminal complaint. He never discussed this with the Pahls nor did his son detect any indication his father would leave him.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Depressedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; The pristine views of the Pacific along historic Highway 1, the ever-pleasant weather and golf courses such as Pebble Beach, not to mention a wealth of highquality universities, draw people from all over to the area Cross was staying. Efforts by police to track Cross via his credit cards and bank accounts led nowhere. There was no activity on any accounts. About a week after he left, in a library in Carmelby-the-Sea, a city whose mayor was once Clint Eastwood, Cross sent an ex-girlfriend an email in which he outlined his despair. By this point he was sleeping on the streets:

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had to walk away from (his son). So awful the house is gone â&#x20AC;Ś I drove to Carmel with nothing. I sleep on the street â&#x20AC;Ś â&#x20AC;&#x153;Please call (Crossâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s son) and see if he picks up his cellphone at this number please if so send me a message I probably only have a couple days â&#x20AC;Ś No one I called would help me â&#x20AC;Ś I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what to do.

You know I love you too. Please if he answers write me a note.â&#x20AC;? Lakeville Police Chief Tom Vonhof told Thisweek Newspapers last week that he had notified law enforcement agencies in the area that Cross was at-large. He added that there was a high probability Cross was destitute at this point. It turned out that though he was nearing the realm of the destitute, reports indicate that Cross had gotten a job at a local deli. He told KSBY, a San Luis Obispo-area TV station, that he got the job to

set up a college fund for his son. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want him to remember his dad as homeless,â&#x20AC;? he said. On the way to his shift on Monday, Aug. 29, Crossâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s minivan â&#x20AC;&#x201C; adorned with Minnesota plates â&#x20AC;&#x201C; garnered the attention of a sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s deputy. This led to Crossâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s arrest and subsequent booking into county jail. Court records showed that Cross was judged to be the father of the boy, according to the criminal complaint for the case. The court awarded him sole legal and physical custody in 2001. The mother was largely not involved. She was awarded visitation rights, but they were suspended in 2002 after a year in which she apparently did not exercise her right to see the boy. According to news reports, the mother contacted the Dakota County Attorneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office Wednesday morning, but her involvement in the case is unknown. Cross will face a judge in California, Backstrom said, but his office will engage in the extradition process to bring Cross back here. Backstrom said that his office is pressing extradition, despite the offenseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gross misdemeanor classification, because of â&#x20AC;&#x153;the extremely serious nature of this case.â&#x20AC;? Once he appears in court, Backstrom said, Cross can waive extradition to Minnesota, which means a Dakota County deputy goes out to See Times, 15A

California to retrieve him. This would take about a week at most. If Cross contests the extradition, then both Gov. Mark Dayton and California Governor Jerry Brown must get involved by signing off on the extradition. This process, which also involves the attorneys general offices of each state could take 90 days. It appears the latter option is unlikely, because Cross told KSBY that he intends to fight the charges once he returns to Minnesota. Backstrom thinks Crossâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s McKnight/from 1A From 2001 to 2009, he worked as the Dodge County administrator, and McKnight was Redwood County coordinator in 2000 and 2001. He also was a program analyst for Minnesota Counties Insurance Trust and worked as special projects coordinator in Goodhue County. McKnight replaces former City Administrator Peter Herlofsky, whose last day was May 31. For the two months between city leaders, Farmington City Engineer Kevin Schorzman served as city administrator, working with staff and council members on numerous issues, including city budget plans. Schorzman worked extensively on the proposed debt reduction plan before becoming interim city administrator. Farmington Mayor Todd Larson said Schorzman has done an â&#x20AC;&#x153;awesomeâ&#x20AC;? job in leading the city. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fabulous to work with. His communication ability is just super. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no wondering where heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s coming from,â&#x20AC;? Larson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think he made it easy for David to just to step right in.â&#x20AC;? Council Member Jason Bartholomay, who also chairs the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Economic Development Authority, said Schorzman helped to improve communication, and worked hard to ensure City Council members had a clear understanding of all issues.

return is pivotal for the son, too. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important to have (Crossâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s) input in the child protection proceedings,â&#x20AC;? Backstrom said. Backstrom said: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our primary concern is for the welfare of this boy.â&#x20AC;? The boy is currently in the custody of Dakota County child protection services. He was placed immediately into a temporary foster home with subsequent temporary placement with a relative, Backstrom said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A permanent replacement will hopefully be made within six months,â&#x20AC;? he said.

Under Minnesota law, a gross misdemeanor can mean up to a year in jail and $1,000 fine. Dakota County offers services for those undergoing economic stresses such as foreclosures. The Dakota County Community Development Agency provides free foreclosure counseling to help homeowners who are in or nearing foreclosure with referrals to additional resources and, in some cases, financial assistance. Aaron Vehling is at aaron. vehling@ecm-inc.com and www. facebook.com/thisweeklive.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s three qualities a leader must exemplify to build trust: competence, connection and character. Kevin has all three of these, and I think thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been so successful in bringing us from where we were in the process to where we are now. We trusted him,â&#x20AC;? Bartholomay said. Larson added that he is excited that McKnight is on the job, and met with him first thing Monday morning to briefly discuss city issues. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just told him that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m happy he was there, and letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

get to work,â&#x20AC;? Larson said. Bartholomay agreed, noting the passion he sees McKnight has about his hometown and desire for the city to thrive despite a rough economy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I believe in the next two to five years, people are going to see a drastic difference in Farmington, because when you have the right leaders in place, it equals success and thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no stopping it,â&#x20AC;? Bartholomay said.
