Race for Hunger raises little money for food shelves Large overhead, lack of ticket sales cited for reasons behind losses by Aaron Vehling and Tad Johnson THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

Local city officials and some media members racing cars against each other sounds like a fun way to raise money for local food shelves. But the Sept. 9 Race for Hunger at Raceway Park in Shakopee drew a small crowd and raised a small fraction of what attendees and participants anticipated. Rosemount Mayor Bill

Droste, Apple Valley Council Member John Bergman, Eagan Council Member Meg Tilley, Lakeville Mayor Mark Bellows and Burnsville Council Member Dan Kealey participated in the event, which lost money for organizer, Click Club USA. Dennis Barlau, president of Click Club USA, said that after the $10,000 to rent the race track and about $1,200 to print the tickets, about “$700 is as close as we can come� to donating to food shelves run by 360

Heritage Center divides Lakeville City Council

Communities, Neighbors Inc. and the Emergency Foodshelf Network. The event sold 788 tickets, Barlau said, and, in a letter to Thisweek, he wrote that “$1.00 of each ticket sold will go to the designated food shelf organizations.� His company lost about $5,000 on the event, he said. “I would have been much better off handing them a check out of my pocket for $5,000,� Barlau said in an interview.

It was not the first time the Race for Hunger was unable to distribute money to food shelves. A June race with Scott County mayors broke even, Barlau said, leaving nothing for the charitable cause. “We booked it on the night of Scott County graduation(s),� he said, “so everyone bought tickets but no one showed up.� Barlau said that when participants signed up for the recent race with Dakota County officials, he told

them that if each of the 20 city participants sold 100 tickets the event would raise $10,000 for the food shelves. “Our food shelves are in such bad shape,� he said. “I wanted to do something to help.� Mike Hellendrung, the general manager of Raceway Park, said the $10,000 cost Barlau paid was “for renting (for the event) and bringing out corporate sponsors to drive cars on different occasions.� “Corporate sponsors

came out a couple days after the race night and drove cars,� he said.

Participants Barlau said much of the reason for the losses of the Sept. 9 race stems from circumstance. He said a couple of the participating mayors were involved in emergencies that kept them from participating. He also said Lakeville Council Member Matt Little, who was originally supSee Race, 3A

Mayor accuses Senior Center leader of lying, calls for special meeting by Aaron Vehling THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

The Heritage Center project became a wedge issue again at Monday night’s Lakeville City Council meeting. Mayor Mark Bellows, upon voting against approval of a contract with Wold Architects, accused Senior Center Coordinator Linda Walter of lying about the project. The contract was for engineering and design work at the former police station on Holyoke Avenue. “I’m embarrassed by the process,� Bellows said. “The issue for me is I feel like we were lied to by a staff member. I don’t think there were ramifications for that.�

He added that he had talked to City Administrator Steve Mielke “about it a couple of Bellows times� and did not want to set a precedent among the staff that “this behavior can continue.� Bellows declined to identify Walter initially, but City Attorney Roger Knutson said state law required Bellows to identify the staff member in question if he planned to call a special meeting to discuss her. That was Bellows’ intent. He also indicated he See Lying, 13A

Larson reconsiders debt Lakeville superintendent reduction plan in Farmington discusses school reform Open houses set for citizen input regarding budget proposal THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

Farmington Mayor Todd Larson is reconsidering his full support of the city’s debt reduction plan. Citing citizens’ concerns about multiple property tax increases the plan would create, Larson told Thisweek Newspapers he will propose an alternative that will likely reduce the 2012 preliminary levy by $400,000 and replace it with bonding for the street rehabilitiation fund. For months, Larson has

sided with City Council members Christy Jo Fogarty and Jason Bartholomay in promoting a city plan that builds a cash account to fund major projects like road work to avoid adding to the city’s $38 million bond debt. To avoid incurring more debt, annual property tax increases are required in all but four years through 2023. Next year, if unchanged, Farmington’s $9.5 million preliminary levy adds $84 onto 2012 tax bills

for homestead property with an average value of $190,200. Farmington businesses and rental properties at the same average value would have a $288 increase next year. Since voting for the preliminary levy Sept. 6, Larson said he heard from citizens who have had salaries cut, are struggling financially and oppose an increase. Larson said he has spoken with City AdministraSee Debt, 13A

Lakeville schools Superintendent Lisa Snyder stood before the audience of Chamber of Commerce members at the Chart House on Sept. 21 for the first time as leader of the district. Snyder, hired in part to be a reformer, declared to those eating lunch at the annual State of the Schools speech that while the district has done a great many wonderful things, there is a lot of room for improvement. She said the focus for the school year consists of four main points: academic achievement, community connectedness, fiscal responsibility and a highquality workforce. As she has discussed since her job interview two months ago, Snyder emphasized the need to bring the students into 21st century learning through technology. Digital learning was increasingly the norm in Wisconsin, where she was previously a superintendent, and she said it is becoming more important in the modern

Lakeville Superintendent Lisa Snyder gave the annual State of the Schools speech to Lakeville Area Chamber of Commerce members at the Chart House on Sept. 21. era. Building off this is the idea of personalized student learning. “For the last 100 years schools have worked on a ‘deficit model,’� Snyder said. “You didn’t choose your careers based on what you were bad at.� Through digital tools, Snyder said students will have a greater ability to achieve at their own pace. She posed the questions: “What if we didn’t have

grade levels? What if a child could progress based on their own needs?� This also relates to another area of improvement she identified: the large achievement gap between students of different backgrounds. A chart showed white and Asian kids on the ascent, while black and Latino children were falling behind. Snyder said that while See Changes, 14A

soon. Tom Compton, the marketing and communications specialist for 360 Communities, said: “He told me he took a loss. I don’t think we are going to see anything.� The donation of $1,800 worth of food was something with which Compton was not familiar. As of Sept. 20, he said he knew nothing about that. There had been communication problems with 360 Communities since Compton took over for a previous marketing and communications staff member, Baulau said. Barlau said he worked with one employee to start, but when the employee left the position, the successor didn’t know anything about the Race for Hunger. 360 Communities was supposed to sell 50 tickets, Barlau said. “I’m trying to do what I can for the food shelves,� he said. “They need the help.

posed to represent Lakeville, pulled out at the last minute, and, therefore, Bellows did not have the time to sell 100 tickets. Barlau also said he got sick this year, which reduced his ability to market the events. Little withdrew from the race on Sept. 2, citing a scheduling conflict. Little, who helped start the Lakeville Resource Center food shelf in downtown Lakeville, recently decided to go public with what he said were his concerns about the event. “There was a lack of transparency,� he said. “I was actually pretty excited to race originally.� Little said there was no indication that Click Club USA was a for-profit company. So when he requested a receipt for his donations from Barlau, Little said he learned of the company’s status. He said in addition to the lack of disclosure about the for-profit nature of the organizer and his inability to acquire a receipt, he did not see any specific indication of where the money would go. “There were a lot of red flags,� he said. Burnsville City Council Member Dan Kealey raced in the Sept. 9 event. He said he had not heard any official word about total revenues or expenses. “I’m disappointed it didn’t draw enough people� to benefit the food shelves, he said. “If organizers are able to do it again next year, they should advertise it more in advance.� Kealey also said Click Club USA should focus on signing up more volunteers and negotiating a better track rate. “You would think the track would donate at least something,� he said. Rosemount Mayor Bill Droste was another participant in the event. Barlau disclosed to Droste that the first Scott County Race for Hunger was unable to do-

nate to foodshelves. Droste said he still decided to participate, thinking that if “they can get their act together, they can make some money.� Droste said he would have had more confidence in the event if he would have been presented with a goal that was needed to cover the event’s expenses. A few things had Droste low key about promoting it and selling tickets. Among them were that the original date had to be changed, that tickets were provided without much instruction and that they weren’t numbered. “The organization structure somewhat had me concerned,� he said. “The first thing that made me nervous was the tickets were not numbered.� After he was told that the event would give an estimated $700 to foodshelves, Droste said: “It is disappointing if that is what it is.� Droste said he committed about five hours to the event. “I know for a fact that people will strongly support food shelves,� Droste said. “You want to make sure it is credible if you are going to be involved.� And having an elected officials involved in selling tickets leads people to believe that there is a good vetting of the fundraiser, according to Droste.

Future plans Barlau told Thisweek that he plans to hold five races next year. “Next month I’m negotiating a new deal with Raceway,� he said, adding that he wants to add to his roster of corporate sponsors that includes Dick’s Sanitation of Lakeville and Pawn America. As for the lack of success with these events, Barlau said they are large undertakings and that he is “still learning.� He said his intentions were honorable. Barlau said he also plans to move the event from Fridays to Saturdays. Overall, he remains optimistic for future races. “We have 14 mayors lined up for next year,� he said, adding that he has fielded calls from mayors who were left out from the earlier races who want to race next year.

While Barlau’s letter to Thisweek stated that $1 per ticket sold would go to foodshelves, Barlau said on the phone and on Click Club USA’s web site that “$9.00 worth of food will be donated to the food shelves for each ticket purchase.� When asked about that, Barlau said that would happen after he sold 1,000 tickets. Barlau clarified the phrase, “worth of food,� saying that the money donated translated to a greater value in food for food shelves per dollar. He said he would be presenting a check worth $1,800 in food Click Club USA coordito each of the food shelves nates an estimated 400 “cou-

Opinion Thisweek Columnist Congratulations to area students, educators on reading progress by Joe Nathan THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

Standardized test results released last week show Farmington and Lakeville students made progress in reading, and still have work to do in math. While standardized tests are only one of many important ways to measure student and school progress, this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s results provide valuable information. The best news is in reading. The percentage of Lakeville district students who reached the â&#x20AC;&#x153;proficiencyâ&#x20AC;? level, as measured by Minnesotaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Comprehensive Assessment, increased from 81 percent in 2009-10 to 87 percent last spring. In Farmington, it increased from 79 to 80 percent. Statewide, the percentage of students passing the reading test in-

creased from 72 to 75 percent. (Thanks to Joan Arbisi Little for her statistical analysis of MDE data.) Progress in reading is a real tribute to Minnesotaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s students, educators and families. These are very challenging times. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to list the array of economic problems, and partisan political battles. Way too many people are unemployed, or under-employed. Yet, despite all this, educators and families helped a growing percentage of young people reach proficiency in reading. Congratulations! Scores were down grades 3-8 in math in Farmington, Lakeville and across the state. Minnesota Department of Education offi-

cials said this is due, as noted in a press release, â&#x20AC;&#x153;in large part to a new assessment designed to measure studentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grasp of more difficult content.â&#x20AC;? In a press release, Education Commissioner Brenda Cassellius explained: â&#x20AC;&#x153;This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s test will set a baseline for us to measure our improvement over the next several years. Just as we have with 11th-grade math scores and grades 3-8 MCA II reading scores, we believe weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll continue to see gains in student mastery of the new rigorous standards.â&#x20AC;? Statewide the percentage of students passing the math test declined from 66 percent to 57 percent. However, the percentage of 11th-graders passing the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s math test increased from 43 to 48 percent. So at both elementary and high school level, more work

is needed. Complete results are available not only for districts,but also for individual schools, and even for specific grade levels in schools. You can find them on the Minnesota Department of Education website, education.state.mn.us When purchasing a car most of us donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just look at one factor, whether itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gas mileage, safety rating, ranking in various consumer magazines, special features, etc. The same is true in judging a school. Yes, we ought to look at the test scores. We should look at whether a growing percentage of students are passing the statewide tests. But we also should be looking at factors like safety, attendance, and how families, students and

graduates feel about the school. Families may also have other criteria, such as what clubs, sports and other curricular programs are available at the school. This isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a plea for passivity. The tests help identify both progress, and the need for considerably more work in math. But I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important to provide a full, fair picture. These results do show progress in reading, a critical area. Thanks to families, educators and students for helping make this happen. Joe Nathan, former public school teacher, administrator, PTA president, parent of three public school graduates now directs the Center for School Change at Macalester College.

Early in the summer, Japanese beetles stripped my birch and apple trees of their leaves. Today, as I watch the maple and linden trees in the yard turn color, it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem right that the other trees were robbed of a summer of nourishment as they head into the fall and winter seasons. The old saying is â&#x20AC;&#x153;life is not fair,â&#x20AC;? right? But imagine if these were children we were talking about, and instead of leaves, they were deprived of a quality education and other basic necessities that would help them flourish into strong, vibrant and successful adults. Would we simply shrug our shoulders and say: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Life is not fair?â&#x20AC;? When a child does not have their basic needs met, the road to success in school and life becomes an uncertain and bumpy one. The larger community also pays a price.  Consider these statistics: â&#x20AC;˘ Children born into the highest income areas in the Twin Cities live eight years longer than those born into the poorest communities, according to a Wilder Research study from October 2010. â&#x20AC;˘ The most educated in the Twin Cities area can expect to live five years longer than the least educated, according to the same study. â&#x20AC;˘ High school dropouts earn $260,000 less over a lifetime than high school graduates and pay $60,000 less in taxes, according to an October 2005 study by Cecilia Rouse of Princeton University. At 360 Communities, we believe that children who are born into poverty do not have to live out these statistics. We believe a person is a person, no matter where you come from, who your parents are, or how much money you make. All children should have the right to health, education, safety and prosperity. As a new school year begins in these difficult economic times, many families are anxious. Keeping children fed, sheltered, clothed and safe can seem daunting when faced with so many other challenges.  For some parents, school success for their children may feel like a pipe dream. This is why 360 Communitiesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Partners

For Success has family support workers  in 25 schools from seven school districts in Minnesotaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dakota and Scott counties. These family support workers  identify students who are struggling in school and work with families to put students on a path to greater school success. By engaging families and helping them map out realistic learning goals for the school year, family support workers empower them to break the cycle of poverty and achieve self-sustained success. They provide families the support, tools and resources to secure a healthier, more prosperous and fulfilling life together. An added benefit to the Partners For Success work is that teachers can spend less time addressing non-academic issues and more time focusing on what they do best: teaching. In Independent School District 197, Partners For Success worked with 628 individuals in eight schools during the 20102011 school year, improving communication between home and school, stabilizing student attendance, improving student behavior and connecting families with tangible, financial and informational resources. District 197 Interim Superintendent Tom Nelson says a successful school experience comes down to support. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t achieve success without complete support surrounding the student â&#x20AC;&#x201C; from the family, from the school and from the community,â&#x20AC;? says Nelson, â&#x20AC;&#x153;360 Communities helps provide that support. Otherwise, left to chance, student success often just doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t happen.â&#x20AC;? Leaving the success of our students to chance is not an option. We need these children to reach their potential in order to secure a brighter future for them and for the community surrounding them. While it is true that life is not fair, success should be every childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s for the taking.

Bower went from stewardess to Air Force lieutenant colonel by Laura Adelmann THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

A Farmington girl with small-town roots became a woman who lived many bigtime adventures. Dorothy Bower, born Dorothy McHugh in 1916, would become a glamorous world traveler, with a career that included nurse, stewardess and Air Force lieutenant colonel, all in an age when women rarely undertook such pursuits. Remembered by her niece and goddaughter Joni Ryan as adventurous, generous and fun-loving, Dorothy died peacefully Aug. 8 in Texas at age 94 after suffering from deteriorating health in recent years. Dorothy grew up in the well-known McHugh family, the daughter of Hank McHugh, a businessman who ran a meat market that in 1945 became home to Gerster Jewelers; Hankâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brother, Bill McHugh, was once mayor of Farmington.

ing degree and worked at St. Maryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hospital in Minneapolis before following her Aunt Geneviveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s suggestion to apply to become a stewardess at American Airlines. It was a career path that promised excitement for those who met the kind of stringent standards that today would result in a class action lawsuit. Applicants had to be outgoing, young, single, pretty, slim female nurses who also met certain height requirements. Dorothy passed the test for the stewardess position, given at the glamorous Del Prado Hotel in Chicago. It was a location that hinted at the life of excitement she would lead. Dorothy was then flown to Flushing, N.Y., for a final interview with stewardess trainer Hazel Brooks and Newton Wilson, then supervisor of all American Airlines stewardesses. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When she was hired, it was a big deal in FarmingSee Bower, 12A

Were you aware Mark Twain has a Twitter account? Though he died in 1910, you can find quotes from the venerated American humorist at Twitter.com/Mark_Twain_ Live. The one-liners on the site are posted by Twain scholar and impersonator Michael Bateson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think Twain would have embraced Twitter, and I think he would have made fun of it,â&#x20AC;? said Bateson, whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been publicly performing as Twain â&#x20AC;&#x201C; complete with white suit, wig and Missouri drawl â&#x20AC;&#x201C; for about 10 years. Bateson will be bringing his act, â&#x20AC;&#x153;An Afternoon with Mark Twain,â&#x20AC;? to Rosemountâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Steeple Center on Sept. 29, and to the Lakeville Area Arts Center on Nov. 6. A Twain fan since childhood, Bateson brings an encyclopedic knowledge of the authorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life and work to his shows, which are brimming with humorous anecdotes and biographical details. His impressive cache of Twain lore becomes evident near the end of the performances when he opens it up to questions from the audience â&#x20AC;&#x201C; staying in character unless heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s absolutely stumped by a query. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know the answer â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been very fortunate, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only been a couple of times â&#x20AC;&#x201C; I will step out of character and let them know I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll get their name and number and get back to them with the answer.â&#x20AC;? To stump Bateson, though, you really have to dig deep into the minutiae. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Once, I was asked by a lady if he spoke at his motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s funeral,â&#x20AC;? Bateson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had to be perfectly candid, in all my reading I never found a reference to him giving the eulogy at his motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s funeral.â&#x20AC;? It turns out Twain did not give the eulogy at the funeral, Bateson discovered after researching the matter at home, and sent the woman an email with the news. Bateson, a Cannon Falls resident who works in advertising sales with Charter Media in Rosemount, said the continuing appeal of Twainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s oeuvre has to do with its time-

No let down for Lakeville football by Andy Rogers THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

Panthers are the highest scoring team in the conference, averaging 38 points per game, the Irish have the best defense, allowing just 6.3 points per game. The Cougars had their biggest win of the season, defeating Apple Valley 45-6 last week. The last and only other time Lakeville South started the season 3-0, the Cougars went on to play in the 2006 Prep Bowl against Eden Prairie. Lakeville South will head to Bloomington Jefferson on Friday. The Jaguars are off to a 1-2 start and they���ve scored just seven points in their last two games.

Both Lakeville North and Lakeville South football teams are off to one of their best starts in school history with both teams sitting happy with 3-0 records. It’s the first time both teams have been undefeated at the same time after three games since Lakeville South opened. The Panthers got there with a 27-14 victory against nonconference Edina last Friday. This is the second year in a row the Panthers have started 3-0.

Soccer is a relatively new varsity sport for Farmington, and it has had its share of growing pains. But this year’s senior class has grown up with soccer and it shows. “I can tell you this is the best start I have seen in the past three years,” Farmington boys coach Julian Buss said. “Farmington soccer has improved to the point that we should be competitive with Missota Conference schools and Section 1AA schools. “We are playing tough against schools that have a tradition of excellence and success with boys soccer.” The boys team has a star player on defense, offense, midfield and in goal. Keeper Chad Stivers has five shutouts with help from defender Sam Leske. “Sam and Chad, along with our defense, has been doing a good job keeping the ball out of the net,” Buss said. Midfielder Brandon Scott and forward Cole Landwehr both have eight goals. The Tigers figured they had something going early on with a 0-0 tie against Lakeville North, last year’s Section 1AA champion. A few weeks later, the Tigers notched a 1-0 win over Northfield, which has outplayed the Tigers several times in the past. The Tigers thumped Chanhassen on Tuesday, 7-1. It should help secure some home games in the Section 1AA tournament and inches them closer to a first ever Missota Conference title. “I think that Shakopee

looks tough and may be the team to beat now that we have played Northfield,” Buss said. “You never know. Last year we lost to Chanhassen in overtime by one goal but beat Chaska by one. Anything can happen so we will just try to play good soccer and see what comes of it.”

Kelli Harstad has also stepped up this season. “She doesn’t show up much in the stat line but she influences every game,” Carpentier said. “When we do well it’s because the team feeds off her. … When we are struggling, she lifts the team on her shoulders.”

Girls soccer

Swimming

The girls team is relying on several young players as it is without forward Kenya Macias who is out with an injury. Coach Rob Carpentier hopes Macias will be back for playoffs. Until then he’d like to avoid the kind of game they had on Tuesday against Chanhassen. “We lost to a team we shouldn’t have been close to,” Carpentier said. “This is the problem with a young team; they are still learning what it takes to be successful game in and game out.” The six-win Tigers were on a three-game winning streak, but the 2-1 loss to Chanhassen was frustrating. “This is by far the most talented team (Farmington) has ever had but because of their youth, their effort waxes and wanes,” Carpentier said. “Last year’s squad, for instance, didn’t have the across the board talent of this squad, but I knew the effort we’d give every time out. These girls have to get to that level.” Defenses are concentrating their efforts on stopping leading scorer Ashley Kimmell, whose goal scoring has dropped off with the increased attention. “She has natural speed and a cannon of a right foot.”

The Farmington girls swim team won the Bloomington Kennedy Invitational last weekend for the second straight year. “The team has raised its level of work in practices and it’s showing through in performances,” Tiger head coach Jen Marshall said. “All of this should make for a very successful championship season.” The girls swam away from Red Wing; Eau Claire North, Wis.; Minneapolis South and the host Kennedy taking home first in eight of the meet’s 12 events. Kaitlyn O’Reilly and Zoe Avestruz were each part of four winning events. “Captains Abby Haugen, Sarah O’Reilly and Victoria Resch have been doing a great job of leading the team,” Marshall said. “Additionally, we’ve got a solid group of freshmen and sophomores who are swimming very fast.” The girls are heading to North Dakota this weekend for a multi-state meet. The dual they’re looking most forward to is against Northfield, the reigning conference champions, on Sept. 29. Andy Rogers is at andy.rogers@ecm-inc.com.

There are only a handful of undefeated soccer teams in Minnesota, and the Lakeville North girls team is one of them. Armed with a group of talented soccer players, coach Josh Linde knew he had something special, he just didn’t know how it would all fit. The girls play with three different club teams in the summer: Minnesota Thunder, Dakota Rev and Lakeville. There was potential for negative chemistry and ball hogging. “I told them there can’t be any drama and they have to keep getting better everyday,” Linde said. “As a coach I’m just trying to get out of the way and to let the talent shine and to make sure they’re truly a team.” When Linde sat down with the girls to ask them all their goal for the season they all said “to go to state.” “I let them say it out loud in front of everybody,” Linde said. “They were all the same. Maybe they do it a certain way on their club team, and here we might do it slightly different. We felt like we put the roster that all the players would be participants. “If we want to go to state we’re going to have to do it together.” Their tactic is to attack as a team and defend as a team. During the Panthers’ first few games, the girls

were putting up five-plus goals regularly and no one had more than one goal. “To be able to score in many different ways. It shows me that we don’t need a hero,” Linde said. If there is a hero, it’s Simone Kolander, but she’s embraced the group effort. As the team’s leading scorer as a freshmen and sophomore, the junior leads the team with almost 20 assists. “She’s doing the work to get the goal for the team instead for herself,” Linde said. “We’re hoping that’s the ethos this team can take on.” With the South Suburban Conference part of the schedule underway, the competition has only gotten stronger. The Panthers will travel to another contender – Eagan – on Tuesday and host Burnsville a week laster. “I would like to see they can identify when they do need to get the ball out of danger and use their teammates,” Linde said. “Many times in those games when the teams are pretty even it’s about who focuses for the whole game. They need to show themselves they can do that as teammates.”

Lakeville South The Cougars are another team planning on being a contender come playoff time, but they’ve got a problem. “You’ve got to score to win,” head coach Dan Flood said. “We’re just not See Soccer, 14A

ton,â&#x20AC;? Joni said. Her achievement made the news. A March 8, 1940, Dakota County Tribune article said Dorothy was one of 12 offered a position out of the 80 girls who passed examination. The article called Dorothy â&#x20AC;&#x153;perhaps â&#x20AC;Ś the only young lady in this community who has become an air stewardess.â&#x20AC;? Dorothy would come to refer to this part of her life journey as her â&#x20AC;&#x153;white glove days,â&#x20AC;? reflecting that required part of her uniform. They were also days of 1940s-era glamor, as she moved to Manhattan and frequented hot spots including the 21 Club, the Stork Club, and Toots Shors. She hobnobbed with celebrities such as Joe DiMaggio, Marilyn Monroe, and Jackie Gleason, traveling the world and sharing tales of her adventures with her family at home in Farmington. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When we were kids, she was like this glamorous aunt who came once or twice per year to visit. We really looked forward to her visits. She would take us girls shopping in downtown Minneapolis. None of us ever went there,â&#x20AC;? Joni said. In 1952, Dorothy was recruited to join the Air Force Nursing Corps. She trained at the Air University at MaxwellGunter Air Force Base in Alabama, reviewing surgical and medical procedures that included emergency and survival training.

Upon earning her flight nurse wings, Dorothy embarked upon a 20-year career as a U.S. Air Force nurse and officer. She cared for wounded soldiers, working as a flight nurse in both the Korean and Vietnam wars. Dorothy assisted in evacuations. She delivered a baby during one of the flights; on another, she pulled a tooth. She retired in 1972, having reached the rank of lieutenant colonel, and lived in Florida with her husband, Col. Woodfin Sullivan. Throughout the years, Dorothy maintained close relationships with her family, and in 1987 took Joni and her sister, Judi Hawkins of Burnsville, on a monthlong European vacation. At 77, Dorothy still wore her signature high heeled shoes and an impeccable dress, taking the women on shopping excursions by traveling from town to town on trains, her four luggage bags growing heavier as purchases mounted. Despite the difficulty it took to drag the bags up and down trains, it took a lot of persuading from Joni and Judi before Dorothy finally relented and agreed to purchase a pair of flat shoes for the trip. Dorothy moved to San Antonio after Sullivanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s death, and in 1993 married Col. James Bower, who died in 2001. She stayed in San Antonio, and eventually discovered love again with Gen. Tom Whitehouse, her neighbor and boyfriend, now 96 years old.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;They went out dancing and had wonderful dinners; they just had a ball. The two of them were inseparable,â&#x20AC;? Joni said. Although she never had her own children, throughout her life Dorothy lavished love and gifts upon her nieces and nephews. In the summers, she invited them to Florida for long visits, where Joni and Judiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brothers, Tom and Jerry Ryan, then in elementary school, learned to dive and waterski. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sometimes they would come back and go right down again,â&#x20AC;? Joni said. Dorothy was remembered as elegant, generous, glamorous, always sporting the latest chic fashions, but constantly thinking of others. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She was so fun living, always game for whatever. â&#x20AC;Ś I always felt like she truly cared about us,â&#x20AC;? Judi said. Dorothy was preceded in death by her parents, Hank and Kathleen McHugh; a brother, James McHugh; sister, Mary Ann McCall; and two husbands. She is survived by her longtime companion, Gen. Thomas Whitehouse; sisters, June Murphy, Kathleen Ryan Tousignant, and Helen Fischer. A well-attended memorial service was held in San Antonio on Aug. 12 for her many friends there. A funeral was held at St. Michaelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Catholic Church in Farmington on Sept. 7. Interment will be at Arlington National Cemetery at a later date.

11 years on the council, he followed the typical council understanding: That once a majority approved of something by vote, the entire council would unite and support a project. He indicated that the Heritage Center would have to be an exception and that it felt as if the project was â&#x20AC;&#x153;shoved up our butts.â&#x20AC;? The Heritage Center project will include a senior center, offices for the Lakeville Yellow Ribbon organization and will be the new home for the Lakeville Area Historical Society. Walter declined to comment on the accusations. Mielke also declined to comment, citing the confidential nature of personnel matters.

wanted the council to conduct a performance review of City Administrator Steve Mielke, separately. Council Member Colleen Ratzlaff LaBeau also voted against approving the $58,000 engineering and design contract, but did not voice a similar complaint. She said she was concerned about certain clauses in the contract, including those relating to reimbursable expenses and the duties of the project and construction managers. The 3-2 vote is the typical council split in regard to the Heritage Center project. Council Members Laurie Rieb, Kerrin Swecker and Matt Little were the three affirmative votes. Little disagreed with Bellows. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just want to say I stand behind staff 100 percent,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Certainly the allegation of lies is Aaron Vehling is at aaron.vehpretty hefty without any ling@ecm-inc.com and www. evidence at all.â&#x20AC;? facebook.com/thisweeklive.

He said he is scared to read the city is planning to raise taxes when incomes are plummeting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think the majority of the people are at the top where thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no more to give,â&#x20AC;? Ristow said. Farmington council members urged citizens to attend the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s budget open house meetings to provide feedback and ideas about the city budget. The meetings will be held 4 to 6 p.m. Monday, Oct. 10; 5 to 7 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 25 and 6 to 8 p.m. Monday, Nov. 14. The meetings will take place at Farmington City Hall, 430 Third St.

If Larson stays this course, he would provide the vote needed to side with council members Julie May and Terry Donnelly, who have opposed the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plan because of its tax increases. Larson didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t support completely scrapping the plan, but talked about a scaled back version. After the meeting, Larson told Thisweek he intends to support reducing the preliminary budget, calling the debt reduction plan a â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cadillac versionâ&#x20AC;? that he expected would be reduced. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The budget will not be going up as much as the preliminary number.

Benefit set for Farmington woman A benefit will be held for Farmington resident Linda Santa Cruz from 5 to 9 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 27, at Royal Cliff Event Center, 2280 Cliff Road, Eagan.

The event will include a mostaccioli and meatball dinner, live auction and raffle.

Proceeds will help the Santa Cruz family with medical and household bills. Tickets are $15 in advance or $20 at the door for adults and $7.50 for ages 4-10. Children 3 and younger are free. A â&#x20AC;&#x153;Linda Santa Cruz Benefit Fundâ&#x20AC;? has been established at Wells Fargo Bank. Contributions can be made at any Wells Fargo bank or online at www.wepay.com/donate/109404.

Snyder said it is easier to determine where the students are going â&#x20AC;&#x201C; home school, open enrollment, charter schools â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but it takes time and analysis to determine the reasons why. The elementary school numbers â&#x20AC;&#x153;are a concern,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If this holds up, the whole system declines.â&#x20AC;? So far, Snyder has received positive feedback from community members and district employees alike. She reached out to the audience members, comprised mostly of Lakeville business leaders, to be active participants in the reform process. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need your help,â&#x20AC;? she said.

the percentage of students of color is low, they should not be allowed to fall behind. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These are kids,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Just because their scores are averaged in (with everyone else) doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean they do not exist.â&#x20AC;? In terms of fiscal matters, Director of Business Services Mark Klett was on hand to discuss an issue of concern: declining enrollment. The elementary schools are down 99 students so far and the middle schools are down 27, Klett said. High school enrollment is up 24. State funding is tied to enrollment.
