A decade later, memories of 9/11 remain fresh for local officials Some Dakota County clergy, firefighters provided relief at Ground Zero by Laura Adelmann THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

After the second plane exploded into the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001, then-Dakota County Commissioner Mike Turner grimaced and said it was the start of World War III. County commissioners, staff and others had gathered around a television outside an Apple Valley conference room where they were meeting, staring somberly in disbelief as America was attacked on her own soil. National news anchors changed initial reports that a plane may have accidentally crashed into the North Trade Center Tower, the first struck, and began reporting America was under attack. Shattering glass, explosions, flames, screams, panic, sirens, bodies, horror and collapse all played out for the world to witness. “My blood ran cold,�

rsaid Dakota County Sheriff Dave Bellows, who at ty the time was chief deputy nand driving to work, listening to radio news reports. ut “I was thinking about he the number of people in the he World Trade Center and the ho thousands of people who would be killed,� Bellowss said. “You can’t print what I was thinking,� said Davee y Gisch, Dakota County emergency preparedness coordinator and a Vietnam War veteran, gs who described his feelings of anger, frustration and revenge. “I know it doesn’t sound right, but if you hit me, I’m going to hit you back,� Gisch said. Later that day, thenPresident George W. Bush said: “Freedom itself was attacked this morning by a faceless coward. And freedom will be defended.� Like so many Americans, several Dakota County

leaders said they wound up watching their television sets for most of the day, looking on in horror as eventually two more crashes would happen that day, one at the Pentagon and another in a barren Pennsylvania field after brave passengers stormed the cockpit and foiled hijackers’ plans to fly the plane into the White

Cuts in Lakeville aside, preliminary tax levy calls for slight increase Reduction in general fund spending offset by changes in state law by Aaron Vehling THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

Welcome back

Lakeville’s preliminary tax levy for 2012 calls for an increase somewhere just below one percent. The city has budgeted for a $118,000 decrease in general fund spending, as well as a $185,000 reduction in debt related to fire station number four and a $325,000 drop in equipment certificates. But a change in state law during this year’s legislative session is going to cause some confusion. Previously, a tax-reducing device called the Market Value Homestead Credit (MVHC) was used to give homeowners exactly what it sounds like: a credit on property taxes paid to the

city government. The state would then, in theory, pay the difference to the city. However, in practice, Lakeville had not seen any money from the state for the credit shortfall in the past several years and so it levied for that difference. This amounted to about $789,000 last year. The legislature, in a bid to cut spending, replaced the MVHC with a credit that reduces the value of a property directly. What it means for Lakeville, said City Administrator Steve Mielke, is that the city does not have to levy for that $789,000 this year. This adds to the other reductions in the levy to come out to about $660,000 in overall

reduction of the levy (when increases in street improvment bonds are taken into Mielke account). The problem is that the end result is that some people will see property tax increases. This is because the city’s levy to cover that MVHC was spread across the board, but the credits from the state are not. Some homeowners could see credits of varying degrees and some could see none. So despite more than a half-million dollars in the reduction of the overall See Lakeville, 13A

the city hopes to avoid adding to the city’s debt, which now totals about $38 million. Council members Jason Bartholomay, Christy Jo Fogarty and Mayor Todd Larson agreed they don’t like raising taxes, but support the plan because the city needs to tackle its debt problem before it becomes worse. Bartholomay said he heard at a League of Minnesota Cities event that many cities could be facing bankruptcy by 2016 if they don’t take action. Fogarty said it’s never See Farmington, 14A �

Farmington property taxes are going up in 2012. That much is certain, but the exact increase amount is open to change. The Farmington City Council voted 3-2 to set the 2012 preliminary levy at $9.5 million during its Sept. 6 meeting. However, even council members who voted for the $10.4 million preliminary general fund budget were calling for more discussion and possible budget changes. As passed, property taxes on the average value

$190,200 homestead property will increase by $84 in 2012. Farmington businesses and rental properties will have bigger tax increases because of a formulation change in the state’s Market Value Homestead Credit. Under those changes and with the city’s preliminary levy, taxes on non-homestead properties valued at $190,200 will rise by $288 next year. The increase is partially driven by the city’s plan to fund major projects, like road work, in cash instead of issuing bonds. By paying costs up-front,

The former police station on Holyoke Avenue in Lakeville will begin the process this fall of becoming the Heritage Center, a place that will house a new senior center, the Lakeville Area Historical Society and Lakeville Beyond the Yellow Ribbon.

Heritage Center kickoff this weekend Attendees can tour the site, see concept plans for building by Aaron Vehling THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

This Saturday could provide an informative time for those looking to learn more about the forthcoming Lakeville Heritage Center. The kickoff event, which takes place from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., will feature tours of the site as it stands (it was mothballed after the police department moved out of it in 2008 into a new space further north). There will be opportunities to view concept plans and experience fellowship over brats, root beer and cookies. The former dispatch area, jail cells, offices and patrol rooms will be transformed into spaces that include a coffee bar, weight room, exercise room, game and multipurpose rooms and a large kitchen area. During daytime hours, seniors will use the facility, but evening and weekend hours will be shared with Beyond the Yellow Ribbon and the Lakeville Area Historical Society. In addition, Beyond the Yellow Ribbon will have

designated office, storage and resource center space; the historical society will have designated display areas along with office and work space. The kickoff event will also feature a program that talks about donations that have already been made, in addition to some more information about how

  

people can help raise money toward the repurposing of the 17,000-square-foot building. The new facility is expected to open by November 2012. Aaron Vehling is at aaron.vehling@ecm-inc.com and www.facebook.com/ thisweeklive.

Opinion Thisweek Columnist An awful day that scared and changed us all Larry Werner THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

Autumn is my favorite time of year. It feels so good when summer’s heat and humidity give way to the kind of sunny, dry days we’ve been enjoying this past week. I recall Sept. 11, 2001, as one of those beautiful fall days that I began in my condo just north of downtown Lakeville. By the time I left home that day, the weather seemed like a cruel joke that contrasted with the horrible reality I had watched on television and revisited in replays of the terrorist attacks. Having heard a radio report about the first terrorist-flown plane hitting the World Trade Center, I turned on the TV in time to watch, along with millions of other viewers, the second tower struck, and the rest of my day was haunted by that image and the fears that preoccupied us all. On today’s front page, Laura Adelmann, one of our veteran reporters, writes about what local leaders remember about that day

and the days that followed 9/11. She writes about the fear and the anger, but also about the good works of Dakota County people who, like most of us, will always remember where we were and will never be quite the same because of that day. I remember leaving my home to check in at a golf shop my wife and I owned on Lakeville’s main street, Holyoke Avenue. Our store manager hadn’t heard about the attacks. While telling him the shocking news, my daughter called from her workplace in St. Louis Park. Thinking I was at my office in downtown Minneapolis, she expressed concern that planes might be crashing into buildings there. After assuring her I was safe, I went to a meeting of the Downtown Lakeville Business Association in the Wells Fargo bank building. There, Christine Mondus, the DLBA’s executive director, told us she had just heard from her husband, a Northwest Airlines pilot,

that the rumor among pilots was that terrorists had hijacked many more planes than the four that had crashed, and those planes were going to be hitting other targets. Later in the day, I stopped in at Heritage Links Golf Club, the family business built on the farm near Lakeville where my wife and her siblings had grown up. Our golf pro told me that the son of a regular customer was on the plane that crashed in Pennsylvania. That customer was Tom Burnett Sr., whose son, Tom Jr., fought the terrorists who apparently had hoped to crash that plane into the Capitol or the White House. And then there was that evening at home with Ann and our son, Zack, who was 10 at the time. We dealt with the conflict so many of us remember of not being able to turn off the television and not wanting to see, or let our children see, another rerun of the planes crashing and people running through the streets of New York.

I must confess that during the days that followed, I had great difficulty feeling anything but anger toward those who had done this to us. That anger overwhelmed the fear and definitely crowded out feelings of tolerance and empathy for those who hated America so much they had killed thousands of us. While attending college in the 1960s, I was influenced by the anti-war and civil rights movements and the activists and songwriters who argued peace and love were the answer. In my dorm room, I played the records of the ’60s troubadours, including Peter Paul and Mary. But those peaceful thoughts were replaced on that fall day in 2001 by a desire for revenge against an enemy we still hadn’t identified. By that Sunday, my emotions were a mess. In our church, which has a strong social-justice mission, the music director led us in a Peter Paul and Mary song I had never heard until that day. Over the last 10 years, we have sung it many times in church, and

every time I hear it, I’m reminded of that week 10 years ago. And I’m reminded that while there is no way the attacks of 9/11 should go unpunished, we share this planet with people who see the world differently from the way we do. Through tears that Sunday, I felt my anger ebbing as the congregation sang “The Song of Peace,� which concludes with these lyrics: My country’s skies are bluer than the ocean And sunlight beams on clover leaf and pine But other lands have sunlight too and clover And skies are everywhere as blue as mine O hear my prayer, O God of all the nations A song of peace for their lands and for mine.

Guest Columnist Ten years after 9/11 we are safer, yet must win the fight by Joe Repya SPECIAL TO THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

Tuesday, Sept. 11, 2001, started as most days do. I had just left a Rotary breakfast and stopped for gas for my car. The gas station had a television on showing the fire in the first Trade Center tower in New York City. As I was paying I watched the second plane hit the second tower. I realized this was no accident and that America was under attack. My wife was about to take off from the Minneapolis airport on a business trip to Memphis, Tenn. I called her cell phone numerous times but received no answer. Once I was home my wife called and said all air-

planes were grounded. I told her, for her safety, that she needed to quickly get away from the airport, that the nation was under attack and to come home immediately. By the time she arrived home she was in tears, and our lives and the lives of many were about to change forever. We watched the rest of 9/11 unfold together on television. That evening as we listened to President George W. Bush address the nation from the White House, I told Deb that I would be calling the U.S. Army the next day to volunteer to return to active duty.

I had originally retired from the U.S. Army after 28 years of service in 1998 and had served in combat in Vietnam and Desert Storm. Voluntary retiree recall had occurred in every war since World War I. Within the first month after 9/11, over 12,000 retired U.S. Army veterans would volunteer to return. I was one of only 350 retirees recalled to service. Assigned to the 101st Airborne Division at Fort Campbell, Ky., in October 2004, I served as the senior liaison officer to the Multi National Corps Headquarters in Baghdad, Iraq, in 2005. I returned to Minnesota and entered retired status in September 2006. The entire experience was worth it. We learned that

Americans are willing to step forward and fight for their nation in its hour of need. As a nation we learned that our shores were no longer safe from attack by violent people dedicated to bringing death and destruction because they opposed our freedoms and our way of life. I’m grateful for our young people who serve in our all-volunteer military. They come from the entire spectrum of society, are well educated and are totally committed to defeating the threat against America and Western civilization that al-Qaida and radical jihadists pose. The real heroes of this War on Terror are those who sacrificed their lives and the families who remained at home and worried every minute for the safety of their loved ones. As soldiers, we know our jobs and the risks that accompany serving in com-

bat. We know not all soldiers will return home, yet we are willing to take on the mission to spread freedom throughout the world and protect our way of life here at home. All this begs the question: Are we safer today than before Sept. 11, 2001? Yes, we are. We are fighting a war with an enemy who hides in the shadows, attacks unarmed civilians and will use any weapon they get their hands on to destroy America. We have taken the fight to al-Qaida since 9/11, Navy Seals have killed Osama bin Laden, and we have killed or captured numerous members of al-Qaida’s top leadership. Although it has taken 10 years, we continue to hunt down and bring to justice some of these fanatics who would destroy Western civilization. Yes, our nation has

made some mistakes along the way in how it conducted the war. Unfortunately, war never goes exactly as planned. This is especially true when we fight it in a “politically correct manner� while our enemy fights by no rules at all. Still, our record isn’t bad when you consider that it took 18 years to find Ted Kaczynski, the “Unabomber,� here in America. The fight must continue until fanatic organizations like al-Qaida are defeated, and terrorist nations who support and protect them like Iran and Pakistan are forced to stop. Based on our enemy’s zeal, we have no choice but to continue the fight and win! Joe Repya is a retired lieutenant colonel in the U.S. Army and a resident of Eagan.

To the editor: I read with interest the recent story about Steven Cross, the man who abandoned his 11-year-old son. I’m 38 now and have never had children of my own, but my father abandoned me, my four siblings, and my mother in 1981. Coincidentally, there was a prolonged economic recession during that period. My father was also despairing, desperate, and severely depressed. Rather than leaving the state, however, he committed suicide. Money and employment weren’t the only issues that plagued him; he worked for the same employer for 16 years, but he had recently been demoted due to his department being automated. He didn’t leave a note so everything that was on his mind will never be known. Having life-long problems with depression myself, the excerpts from Cross’s letters sounded somewhat familiar. I’ve known for years that my own father loved us, and probably, in his irrational state of mind, believed that we’d be better off without him. And truthfully, I rarely use the term “abandoned� when referring to my father’s suicide. I know that hopelessness and despair can cause a sane man to do something he’d never otherwise consider. I hope that Steven Cross will not have to serve jail time; rather when the punishment is imposed it comes down to some type of supervised probation and classes on stress management, as well as some type of help for mental health issues. In this case, it doesn’t seem right to put a father in jail for one year for abandoning his child. The end result is the same: a child without a father. It would be better to consider saner alternatives when this apparent first-time offender is

As construction continues in Apple Valley and Lakeville toward a fall 2012 opening of the $112 million Cedar Avenue bus rapid transit line, it appears there may be trouble getting buses. Metropolitan Council Regional Administrator Pat Born, citing $52 million in that organization’s recent budget reductions, wrote to Dakota County Regional Railroad Authority Chair Will Branning that “the (Met) Council will be making some permanent service adjustments to balance the budget.� “This means that the Council does not have funding available to expand services� in the 2012-2013 biennium, Born wrote. After more than a decade of work, and the construction finally coming to fruition this year, it comes down to $1 million, which is the Met Council’s share of the Cedar Avenue line’s $2 million subsidy. The Counties Transit Improvement Board (CTIB), which governs how a quarter-cent sales

tax is spent on transit, would cover the rest. Met Council spokesperson Meredith Salsbery said the Council is “not yet assuming a delay of service� on Cedar. The Council was “just being prudent� about the unresolved funding gap,� Salsbery said. There were plans to purchase buses now for the new station-to-station service along Cedar, which will open in 2012. It can take more than a year to receive the special light rail-style buses once they are ordered. The Minnesota Valley Transit Authority (MVTA) will operate the service, which the Met Council and Dakota County are working on jointly to fund and construct. Robin Selvig, MVTA spokesperson, said meetings are ongoing to address the funding. Selvig said the MVTA is still working on the station-to-station environmental assessment. The organization is also working on a finding of no significant impact (FONSI) . “Nothing could happen in terms of ordering buses until all this stuff got im-

proved and finalized,� she said. Salsbery emphasized that the meetings to discuss the funding gap will occur in the coming weeks and not months. The Met Council and Dakota County will meet in late September to look at funding options, said county engineer/transportation director Mark Krebsbach, who is leading the BRT project. Current construction on the bus shoulder along Cedar Avenue will continue, he said. “Those will be utilized by express buses,� Krebsbach said. So even without BRT-style buses, those shoulders will still get plenty of use, he added. Construction geared toward station-to-station BRT service is slated to start early next year, Krebsbach said. But while isolating funding by then may be feasible, there still is a need to solve this sooner than later. “We need to get out in front of the vehicles because of the delivery time (for newly ordered buses),� he said. As for those funding options, Krebsbach said at this point “anything is on the table. There are no preferred or identified solutions yet. We’re looking at any potential source.� In his letter to Branning, Born wrote that for the Met Council to come up with the $1 million right now, the organization would have to cut existing services by $1 million per year: “Such action would be inconsistent with our priority of preserving existing transit services.� Aaron Vehling is at aaron.vehling@ecm-inc.com and www. facebook.com/thisweeklive.

Benefit set for mom who suffered stroke At 33, Celeste Ask is fighting to walk, talk

ďż˝ 

by Laura Adelmann THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

Celeste Ask, a 33-year-old Farmington mother of two, didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel well when she arrived late to work June 6. Unable to get a doctor appointment, her symptoms, which included facial numbness and a headache, rapidly increased. After about a half-hour at work, she fumbled with her phone, unable to dial, then suddenly collapsed out of a chair and became very sick. Doctors at the Burnsville Ridges Hospital discovered her brain was bleeding and rushed her by ambulance to the University of Minnesota Hospital where she underwent surgery to remove portions of her skull after doctors attempted to drain fluid on her brain. Doctors feared Celeste wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make it through the night, and she was in a coma for about a week. She awakened from the coma but was unable to move or talk. After weeks of slow recovery, Celeste is going through grueling physical therapy, and in July endured another major surgery to replace pieces of her skull. Since August, Celeste has returned home and is continuing in outpatient rehabilitation, said friends Jess Hauser, Alyssa Olsen and Amy Lock. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Celeste is progressing every day. She is working very hard to re-learn as much as she can and is a fighter. She is determined to be as â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;normalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; as possible. She is left with many challenges, which include learning to walk, talk, read and write. She needs her walker to walk short distances and needs to use a wheelchair to go longer distance. She does not have feeling on her entire right side,â&#x20AC;? the women stated in an email. Celeste, who was described as fun, energetic and spirited, is retaining her optimism and determined to continue working to overcome her physical challenges and

Her husband, Andy Ask, has taken primary responsibility for their sons, Jonah, 5, and Isaac, 8. Once a coach for her sonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sports teams, Celeste can no longer cook for her family as she once did and must rely on others for help with providing food and transportation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Celeste is already extremely grateful for all everyone has done for her and her family. Due to the fact she will not be able to work for some time, there are everyday expenses that this will help with in addition to medical bills,â&#x20AC;? her friends wrote. A fundraising benefit will be held from 4 to 8 p.m. Sept. 17 at the Rosemount VFW, 2625 120th St. W. The event will feature music by Black Water Alley, Minnesota Vikings cheerleaders, food, a silent auction and raffle drawing. To donate a silent auction item, call (651) 470-0825 or (612) 270-9948.

She contacted her family, then spent the day at the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s emergency headquarters, the Apple Valley Police Department, working with other officials on plans to protect local schools and other high priority areas in the community. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This was probably the most powerful experience of my lifetime that I can remember,â&#x20AC;? Hamann-Roland said. In the days that followed, the Apple Valley Fire Department sold T-shirts, raising $60,000 that was presented to firefighters in New York. Rev.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Terrorists do not represent Islamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Area Muslims offer a reminder that not all are Al-Qaida by Aaron Vehling THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

Bahgat Elsagher was in Reno, Nev., last month gazing at scores of classic cars from the first half of the 1900s. Amid the hustle and bustle of the car show, Elsagher, of Burnsville, found a bunch a fake money strewn about. He decided to take a couple bills off the ground to trick his wife, Brenda, into thinking he had given up his ban on gambling. Then Elsagher said his wife noticed something troubling about what was printed on the novelty cash. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The statements were all about Islam,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It said â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Muslims are terroristsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and that the Islamic religion is nothing but a regime of war.â&#x20AC;? It was not long after the attacks of Sept. 11 that American Muslims began to experience discrimination and even an occasional hate crime. The sting of the day was ripe on everyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s minds and moments of racism and related violence began to show. To quell this, then-President George W. Bush went to a mosque and declared Islam a religion of peace. He asked Americans to refrain from equating all Muslims with the zealots who populated the ranks of al-Qaida and other terrorist organizations. Bush dampened the anger toward all Muslims by including them in the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Usâ&#x20AC;? category and leaving terrorists and terrorist-harboring nations in the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Themâ&#x20AC;? category.

Increased hate In the past few years, as the economy has tanked and political polarization has increased, it seems the pendulum has swung. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some people either donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t understand or donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to understand that there is a differenceâ&#x20AC;? between terrorists who purport to be Muslim and your average Muslim, said Amin Kader, an Augsburg professor who helped start the Burnsville Mosque and related Islamic Institute of Minnesota on Highway 13. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what we were dealing with,â&#x20AC;?

However, these themes are where people often get the idea that all types of Islam are given to extreme strictures such as the oppression of women. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of people say we force women to wear a hijab (head covering),â&#x20AC;?

Local response Several Dakota County first responders had direct contact with the devastation those attacks caused innocent Americans. On Sept. 23, the Volls were transferred to New York to counsel workers and volunteers; Don was stationed at Ground Zero and Cory ministered in the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s morgue. Don said watching the work on TV was nothing like being there in person, and described his first reaction to the massive destruction as â&#x20AC;&#x153;utter shock.â&#x20AC;? His most vivid memories include the temporary morgue that was established at Ground Zero. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Any time they had body parts to transfer to the permanent morgue, they would have a police motorcycle escort. They would go several blocks. â&#x20AC;Ś It was almost a funeral procession,â&#x20AC;? he said.

Lakeville North football thumps Eastview 42-17 by Andy Rogers THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

The Lakeville North football team leaned on its defense to get its seven wins last year. The Panthers allowed 14.4 points per game, second lowest in the South Suburban Conference, in 2010. This year, the Panthers are hoping to take over that No. 1 spot in defense, but they may not need to rely on it as much if their season opener is any indication. Lakeville North defeated Eastview, 42-17, thanks to an offense led by quarterback Trey Heid who threw for 224 yards. Last season,

the Panthers averaged 16.8 points per game. “This one is on the offensive line,” Heid said. “I barely got touched in the backfield and the receivers made me look good tonight.” The Panthers haven’t scored that many points since September 2009 during a game against Bloomington Jefferson. Eastview hasn’t given up that many points since 2005. Head coach Brian Vossen had plenty of praise for the offense. “Our receivers, Charlie Hayes, Joel Oxton, Ben Blake, they don’t get nervous,” he said. “They know how to compete. And the offensive line, it all comes from coach Jason Albrecht. He instills a lot of toughness to those guys.

Heid’s experience showed in his second year starting. “I feel like as an offense we’re a lot more improved than we were last year,” Heid said. “We returned the most guys out of any other team in the conference, I think.” The Panthers felt they were being overlooked during preseason, so to win big against No. 8 Eastview felt even better. “This was a statement game for us,” Vossen said. “It’s not going to be the last one. We’ve got a long way to go.” The Panthers’ ground game was in full force with Brandon Morgan, who ran for 83 yards and scored twice off short runs. Lakeville North will travel to Apple Valley, a team with three wins in the past

Farmington Farmington’s losing streak from last year followed the team into the season opener last week with a 35-28 loss to Rochester Mayo. The Tigers led 21-7 at halftime, but Mayo rallied to win. There were some positives from the loss for a team that went 1-8 last season. Quarterback Darren Beenken showed progression throwing for 225 yards and four touchdowns. He was helped by Nathan Graham who caught six balls for 112 yards. The Tigers will travel to Red Wing on Friday to play the only team they beat last year. The Wingers were winless in 2010, but the team won its opener against Austin 19-9.

One of the preseason favorites, Lakeville South made the prognosticators look good with a 35-21 win over Eagan on opening night Sept. 2. Mitch Leidner threw for 184 yards and a touchdown and ran for two more. The Cougars also found themselves a running back in Chris Moore who had 115 yards and a touchdown. Lakeville South will make the trip to Eastview – a team looking to regroup on Friday. Eastview holds a 3-2 advantage over Lakeville South. The two teams didn’t Andy Rogers is at play each other last year, but andy.rogers@ecm-inc.com. in 2009 Lakeville South won

State boys soccer semifinal rematch ends in a tie

two years, on Friday. The last time Apple Valley beat Lakeville North was in 2006, but the Eagles will have extra motivation because the school is celebrating the 25th anniversary of its 1986 state championship team.

It’s impossible to be completely happy after a tie game, but that’s soccer. In a rematch of last year’s Class AA state semifinal game, Lakeville North and Apple Valley came to a 0-0 tie after 90 minutes of play. While it was disappointing for both teams, they both could pull off positives from the experience. In the 2010 Class AA state tournament, Apple Valley won the semifinal game against Lakeville North 2-1 last November and went on to win the state title. The game was as close a match as any team had given the Eagles during their two-season undefeated streak. “We hoped we could come out with a victory after what happened last year,” Lakeville North coach Pete Tyma said. “But (Apple Valley) al-

ways reloads. We knew that. They’re always going to be tough. “We had opportunities to win and they had their chances. It would have been fun to win, but at the same time this is Apple Valley.” Lakeville North is the last South Suburban Conference team to defeat Apple Valley, which happened back in 2007. “This was a big game for us,” Lakeville North defensemen Colten Enderson said. “We weren’t completely ready. We’re dissapointed, but we could see them again.” Last year’s Eagles team was dominated by seniors, meaning almost no one is back. Connor Flanagan and Derek Smith, who watched from the sidelines, have now taken on the leadership roles. The team’s 48-game winning streak came to an end on Aug. 29 in a 2-1 loss to Holy Family Catholic. “It was going to happen some day,” Apple Valley head coach Chuck Scanlon said. “We didn’t have the refinement we needed. It takes a while to develop. It doesn’t happen

overnight. “There was going to be a time where we had to start over and this is it.” They still plan on winning as many games as possible and going back to state. What the Eagles lack in varsity experience, they make up for in pride and determination. “We’re getting better every day,” Scanlon said. “We’re finding the right combinations and getting a feel for the attack. We’re excited. We just have to have a little more confidence and work together a Photo by Rick Orndorf little more.” Lakeville North’s Alex Amborn, No. 7, tries to take control Lakeville North hasn’t against Apple Valley on Tuesday. The game ended in a 0-0 tie. lost a game yet, but the players know there’s a long way to go before they can confidently feel they can return to state. “I think the guys have the mentality we need,” Tyma said. “We have plenty of time to get this straightened out. We’re just trying to stay healthy and get into a groove. We learned the section tournament is a whole different beast. You use the regular season to get better.” Photo by Rick Orndorf Andy Rogers is at Lakeville North’s David Sand, No. 21, fights for the ball andy.rogers@ecm-inc.com. against Apple Valley’s Sean Lang, No. 4, in Tuesday’s rematch of the Class AA state semifinals from 2010.

Tiger soccer teams on a tear by Andy Rogers THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

Both Farmington boys and girls soccer teams are off to promising starts to their 2011 seasons. The boys team went 4-01 during its first five games of the season with convincing wins against Hastings, Rochester John Marshall and Rochester Mayo. The Tigers also tied with Lakeville North, the defending Section 1AA champions, and defeated Rosemount 2-1. A big reason for Farmington’s early-season suc-

cess is its defense. Goal keeper Chad Stivers allowed just one goal in the first five games with a save percentage of .975 percent. On offense, the senior duo of Cole Landwehr (three goals, three assists) and Brandon Scott (five goals) have proved to be a force. With the Missota Conference schedule looming, Farmington is the only team without a loss after four games.

seen several positives in its first two weeks of play, opening with a 3-3 record. The girls have defeated Faribault, Waconia and Rochester John Marshall and none of their losses have been by more than two goals. Ashley Kimmell has been a big reason for the Tigers’ success, scoring eight goals and two assists already. Kenya Macias has emerged as well with three goals and four assists.

Cougars sweep the Dakota County Classic by Andy Rogers THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

Cash Rodamaker finished 10th, Jake Schneeman 11th, Wade Durham 15th and Noah Hanson 20th. The girls had six runners place in the top 20. Kaytlyn Larson (second), Annie Brekken (fifth) and Megan Kilbride (sixth) finished the race before anyone from Simely, Apple valley, Forest Lake, Hastings, New Prague, Farmington or Eastview came across.

No team was better than either the Lakeville South boys or girls cross country teams at the Dakota County Classic on Sept. 2 at Eagan. The boys won the nineteam race, holding off an Apple Valley team by 14 points thanks to having five runners finish in the top 20.

Kline meets with local school district officials Private meeting was closed to the public by Laura Adelmann THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

About 35 school superintendents and metro education leaders met with U.S. Rep. John Kline behind closed doors at Farmington High School on Thursday, Aug. 25 to discuss educational issues. Kline, chair of the U.S. House Education and Workforce Committee, was seeking input from local officials about changes they would like to see as the committee works to reauthorize federal educa-

tion laws, according to Klineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s communications director Troy Young. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A good deal of the discussion centered around how to improve the way schools and teachers are held accountable for student performance,â&#x20AC;? Young said in an email. He added that the meeting was closed to the public to create â&#x20AC;&#x153;good, open dialogueâ&#x20AC;? among the officials. Kline has worked to revamp No Child Left Behind, part of the federal Elementary and Secondary Education Act, to allow for more flexibility and local control in schools.

Farmington Schools Superintendent Jay Haugen said Klineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s position was supported by the district leaders who attended the meeting. He added that several school representatives favored allowing the federal government to work more through the states to provide assistance and resources. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With No Child Left Behind, it circumvented the state and school boards and has gone straight to the schools.â&#x20AC;? Haugen said, noting how the federal government labels schools as â&#x20AC;&#x153;failingâ&#x20AC;? and institutes sanctions if they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t meet federally set goals and

standards. Three bills passed by Klineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s committee earlier this year would reform elementary and secondary education law to allow districts more autonomy in decision-making. Young said those bills will be heard on the House floor this week; there is not a Senate companion to any of the bills. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Educators attending the roundtable were particularly interested in what would happen to the outdated No Child Left Behind accountability structure, and the congressman talked with them about some of the ideas he hoped to incorporate in legislation that

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.

THISWEEK September 9, 2011

Community shred event organized

2012 levy, the net effect is that â&#x20AC;&#x153;the actual (increase in) taxes paid will be somewhere less than one percent,â&#x20AC;? Mielke said. The City Council voted 3-1 (with Council Member Colleen Ratzlaff LaBeau voting no and Council Member Laurie Rieb absent) to approve this preliminary levy at its meeting Tuesday night, Sept. 6. LaBeau said she opposed voting for even the preliminary levy because it did not have the 5 percent decrease in spending for which local businesses called; or even zero percent increase for that matter. Mayor Mark Bellows also did not like the budget. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As presented now, I would not be voting in favor of it,â&#x20AC;? he said at the meeting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But we do have opportunities to make reductions.â&#x20AC;? The other council members present - Kerrin Swecker and Matt Little agreed to entertain cuts in the coming months. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think there are items that need to be changed,â&#x20AC;? Little said. The Council will certify a final levy in December. It can reduce the current preliminary levy, but it cannot increase it then. In the meantime, the city is holding a series of public meetings to discuss the budget. To view the budget, go to the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website at http://www.ci.lakeville. mn.us/. The City Council will discuss the budget at its work sessions on Sept. 26, Oct. 24 and Nov. 28. In addition, there are open houses at the Water Treatment Facility on Oct. 5 and Nov. 9. The Truth in Taxation meeting is on Dec. 5. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a preliminary levy,â&#x20AC;? Bellows said at the meeting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We can make adjustments downward.â&#x20AC;?

US Federal Credit Union will hold a free Shred Day for the community from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 10. Individuals are invited to bring up to two boxes of documents to the US Federal branch locations at 1400 Riverwood Drive, Burnsville, and 7644

a good time to raise taxes, but if the council doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do some planning, the city will have greater problems in the future. Finance Director Teresa Walters said Farmington taxpayers are paying millions more for projects by bonding for projects. The city anticipates paying $1.4 million in interest in 2012, she said. Council members Terry Donnelly and Julie May expressed concerns about residents who are already struggling in a tough economy. They said although the plan is a well thought-out way to address the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s debt issues, they suggested doing it with a less-aggressive plan to keep citizens from experiencing significant tax increases. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I understand the rationale, but the timingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not good,â&#x20AC;? Donnelly said, calling the proposed tax increases â&#x20AC;&#x153;huge.â&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x153;This plan doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pay off our current debt faster, it just eliminates future debt,â&#x20AC;? he said. Unlike individuals who pay off debt with early extra payments, cities can only repay bonds at certain times, explained City Engineer Kevin Schorzman. Donnelly said the city is already on the high end of taxes, and with the planâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s call for more tax hikes, Farmington taxes will become too high for people to manage. May also expressed reservations, stating that many Farmington families are struggling, noting the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s number of foreclosures. She said there are people who are one notice away from losing everything. May advocated for spending cuts and adding efficiencies in city operations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These are very scary times,â&#x20AC;? she said. Larson emphasized that the city is seeking public input about the budget and proposed plan. He said several public open houses are planned and the council will continue to discuss and work on various budget options until its final adoption in December. Under state law, cities can reduce the preliminary levy set in the fall but cannot increase it. Larson said that none of the council members like the preliminary levy numbers and he hopes it will be reduced. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a lot of work to be done,â&#x20AC;? he said.

In apparent gratitude, the New York firefighters later sent the Apple Valley Fire Department a piece of a girder from the towers; it is framed and is on display at City Hall. Memories of that day are still vivid for Voll, who listened to rescuers and victimsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; families, many of whom were still in shock that their spouses went to work in the morning and never came home. Many grappled with how to explain it to their children. Voll described his work as a sounding board, allowing them to vent and supporting

them in their despair. Families across America grappled with similar issues. Farmington Mayor Todd Larson remembers his then 6-year-old daughter expressing fear that terrorists would fly planes into more buildings. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We told her the truth: We didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know,â&#x20AC;? Larson said, adding that their children werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t allowed to watch TV as news coverage of the attack was constant. Minnesota Sen. Dave Thompson, R-Lakeville, remembers a surge of emotions as he watched the news reports of the attack. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I stayed up until 3 a.m. watching until I could force myself to go to bed,â&#x20AC;? Thompson said. Of all the images during the news coverage, which went on for weeks, he was most affected by witnessing

the victimsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; families grief and despair. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The people wailing around the site of the destruction with pictures of relatives, saying, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Have you seen this person?

Thisweekend Something strange in the neighborhood Author of haunted-house memoir featured at Rosemount library Annie Wilder says she could tell the house was haunted the very first time she stepped inside. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You felt like somebody was watching you, sort of a prickly feeling in the back of the neck,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There was this very heavy, very gloomy energy and it felt like there was somebody right behind you.â&#x20AC;? The bad vibes didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t deter Wilder, an historicpreservation enthusiast, from buying the Victorianstyle home built in the late 1800s, and she moved in with her two teenage children in 1994. Wilderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s book, â&#x20AC;&#x153;House of Spirits and Whispers,â&#x20AC;? published in 2005, is her account of the familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s experiences with paranormal phenomena in the

The event is free and open to the public. Hastings home. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The first really dramatic proof to me there was a spirit here was, just a week or so after we moved in, I woke up and could hear a womanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s voice,â&#x20AC;? Wilder recounted. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There was this distortion to it â&#x20AC;&#x201C; it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t as bad as the Charlie Brown teacher voice, but it didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sound human.â&#x20AC;? The discarnate voice was followed by thunderous, apocalyptic crashing and pounding in the walls â&#x20AC;&#x201C; sounds which her children said they hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t heard when questioned the

next morning. Since that first clamorous late-night encounter, others in the house have reported hearing whispers, smelling phantom odors such as tobacco and perfume, and having run-ins with spirit entities, including an ominous humanoid being with oily skin and a long black coat Wilder has dubbed Dark Man. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a pretty interesting place to live,â&#x20AC;? she said. Wilder says sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s never seriously considered selling the home because of the spirit activity.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;People are responsible for the energy they project, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m pretty good at projecting a lot of positive energy,â&#x20AC;? said Wilder. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I feel like my job now is to be a good caretaker for the house.â&#x20AC;? In fact, Wilder is so at ease with the eldritch elements at the residence that she regularly hosts Haunted Tea Parties there, and has discussed her experiences in several TV and newspaper stories. After publishing her second book in 2009 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; â&#x20AC;&#x153;Spirits Out of Time,â&#x20AC;? a collection of family ghost stories she culled from genealogy books and relativesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; old letters â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Wilder is now looking forward to publication of her third book, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Trucker Ghost Stories,â&#x20AC;? slated for release next year.
