Farmington’s Fogarty will run for County Board by Laura Adelmann THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

After serving nine years on the Farmington City Council, Christy Jo Fogarty announced Wednesday that she will run for a seat on the Dakota County Board of Commissioners. Fogarty is seeking to fill the seat held for 32 years by Joe Harris, who earlier this year announced he will not seek re-election. “Joe leaves very big shoes to fill,� Fogarty said in a news release. “He has done a great job for Dakota County, and I think I can bring some of the same strengths to the office.� Fogarty, a 12-year Farmington resident, was a mem-

Aging sewer pipes chip into Farmington budget Clay sewer lines wearing out after decades of use

City to study reducing developers’ park fees Current rate deemed too high considering market conditions by Aaron Vehling THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

During boom times, Lakeville seemed to be adding new neighborhoods every couple weeks. The city provided a healthy dose of parks for all those new families. To pay for those amenities, the city used “park dedication fees,� charged to the developer to assist in the construction of parks. When a company built a development, the city assessed a fee for each lot.

A drive or walk around Lakeville reveals numerous parks constructed with such funding. But we live in a different era now; if someone builds a house there’s no guarantee buyers will come. To boot, land prices have dropped. As part of an overall vote on a parks, trails and open spaces plan update, the Lakeville City Council voted this week to reassess the amount of those See Fees, 5A

Farmington Patriotic Day draws crowd About 1,200 turn out to honor military members ďż˝ 

by Laura Adelmann THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

A crowd of about 1,200 turned out for Farmington’s Patriotic Day celebration Oct. 3 at Farmington High School. The annual event included patriotic music and tributes to service men and women and those who lost their lives in the line of duty. Speakers included Betty Wall Strohfus, a Faribault native who loved to fly, and was first in line when the Army Air Force opened a women’s program in 1942. Strohfus was one of about 1,000 women pilots who flew during World War II. The event’s main speaker was Dick Carroll, 91, a World War II veteran who was forced to bail out from his plane while on a bombing run in Budapest, Hungary. Carroll was shot in the

Two cars were among the valuables destroyed in a Nov. 4 fire that ripped through a Farmington home, located on Upper 183rd Street West. Powers said the garage and much of the first level were destroyed in the fire. Also burned was a car parked inside the garage and another in the driveway. The Davis’s basement suffered extensive water damage from water used to extinguish the blaze.

Powers said the cause of the fire was a cigarette Mark Davis had smoked and disposed of in the garage trash can before taking a shower. Powers estimated total losses to be $250,000, including contents of the home. “Smoking material is still

very probably one of the top five causes of fire in Minnesota,� Powers said. “People need to be sure they handle them right. If smoking, they should not dispose of them in the garbage can.� Laura Adelmann is at laura. adelmann@ecm-inc.com.

A Farmington couple safely escaped a Nov. 4 fire that destroyed their home and cars. Homeowner Mark Davis had just taken a shower when he heard crackling sounds and discovered a raging fire in his garage. Davis quickly alerted 911, woke his wife, Kerrie, and safely led her out of their burning home. Farmington firefighters responded within seven minutes to Davis’s 6:40 a.m. call, and found the fire raging through the upper levels of the home, located on the 5900 block of Upper 183rd Street West, Farmington Fire Marshal John Powers said. With assistance from Lakeville, Farmington firefighters had the fire under control within 30 minutes.

According to the complaint: Farmington police were called to Gisch’s home at the 4800 block of 189th Street West on reports of an unresponsive female on May 6. Police said they found Gisch’s wife, Katryna, in a car in the garage and pronounced dead at the scene. Neighbors told police that three children also lived in the home, and they searched inside the home to check for others who may be in need of medical attention. Nobody was in need of medical attention, but police discovered a marijuana growing operation in the basement. Marijuana plants, grow lights and growing equipment was located in two rooms and several marijuana plants were hanging from the ceiling of a crawl space to dry.

Lakeville men arrested for alleged drug possession Homeowner, roommate deny knowledge of oxycodone THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

Two Lakeville men were arrested on Nov. 4 for the alleged possession of a collection of drugs at their home on Kenwood Trail. The homeowner, Sun Leader Glows-Brightly, 73, and tenant Laron Alex Schmidtke, 20, were charged with possession of marijuana and oxycodone found around the home. According to the criminal complaint: Lakeville police officers entered the residence at 8:25 a.m. Nov. 4 with a search warrant. During the search, they found a number of drugs and paraphernalia in rooms throughout the house. Among the items police found in the house were marijuana, needles, a glass pipe, a spoon and tin with alleged trace amounts of controlled substances on them and a spoon that contained trace amounts of oxycodone. In an interview with an officer from the Dakota County Drug Task Force, GlowsBrightly admitted to being a resident and owner of the

property. He said he rented a room to Schmidtke. He denied any of the drugs in the home belonged to him. Schmidtke told the officer a different story. He said the marijuana belonged to both men, but denied any knowledge of any of the other drug items found throughout the home. The Drug Task Force employed the help of the St. Paul Police Department’s Crime Lab to determine the nature of some of the substances. Each man faces two felony drug charges for marijuana and oxycodone. Each charge carries with it as much as five years imprisonment and a $10,000 fine.

Crime of cleanliness? Suspect charged in serial vacuum theft Crime doesn’t pay – nor should it help subsidize your carpet cleaning. An Apple Valley man allegedly responsible for a string of vacuum cleaner thefts at a local Target store has been charged with a felony in Dakota County District Court. The criminal complaint filed Nov. 1 alleges that William L. Peck, 45, stole three vacuum cleaners on three separate occasions from the SuperTarget at 18275 Kenrick Ave. in Lakeville between December 2010 and May 2011. The store’s loss prevention staff contacted Lake-

ville police in June to report three incidents in which Peck was seen on surveillance video selecting a vacuum cleaner, placing it in a cart and then simply walking out of the store without paying. The total value of the three vacuum cleaners was $1,207, the complaint said. If convicted, Peck faces a maximum penalty of five years in prison and a $10,000 fine for the one count of felony theft. According to police, Peck was recently convicted of stealing a vacuum cleaner from a Target store in Edina. —Andrew Miller

plastic bags with marijuana were found in a cooler in the garage. Two more gallon-size plastic bags containing marijuana were found in a blue bag on a garage shelf. The St. Paul Crime Laboratory determined the marijuana weighed two pounds and eight ounces. Officers also allege Gisch employed his minor child to assist in the cultivation of marijuana, trimming, watering and re-potting the plants. The complaint states that Gisch instructed the child how to grow and sell marijuana, and told the child it was “necessary for him/her to learn and participate in the cultivation of the plants and to understand how the business worked.� The minor stated that Gisch sold only to a few people and that his marijuana was high quality.

Vikings/from 1A status report. State Reps. Diane Anderson, R-Eagan; Pam Myrha, R-Burnsville; and Mary Liz Holberg, R-Lakeville, attended the event. Bagley thanked all three for working with them on the stadium issue. When Holberg was asked afterward if she supported public financing for a Vikings stadium she said she would need to see a bill to make such a decision. She compared the stadium discussion to working on a thousand-piece 3D puzzle, except putting together a puzzle “would be a lot more fun,� she said. Dayton was more direct in his rhetoric. “They’re our team,� said Dayton of the Vikings. They want to remain in Minnesota, “but they need a new stadium to do it.� Besides keeping the Vikings in Minnesota, Dayton argues that building a new stadium would create thousands of private sector construction jobs – he’s “mystified� lawmakers fail to make this connection, he explained – in addition to offering a means for remedying urban blight and in the case of Arden Hills, clean up a contaminated Fees/from 1A park dedication fees. The total plan is not to exceed $25,000 (paid out of park dedication fees). The park dedication fees study is scheduled to be completed by January. Developer Jim Stanton, who develops property all over the metro as principal of Shamrock Development, wrote a letter recently to the city asking that the $176,000 in park dedication fees from his most recent Crescent Ridge project be put into an escrow fund until the city reviews its park dedication rates. “I think we are very aware that land prices have plummeted and development has substantially slowed,� Stanton wrote. He added that the current fee of $4,747 per lot would amount to about 33 percent of the land cost for him. State law and city code govern fee rates, suggesting 10 percent as a reasonable fee percentage. “As you can see,� he wrote, “such fees are prohibitive.� Stanton, who is also

area. Bagley cited such economic impact factors in support of the Arden Hills proposal. He said the Vikings generated $21 million in taxes in 2010. Since the Vikings have been playing in the Metrodome, the team has accounted for $186 million in taxes going to the state. He also argued that the Vikings are a regional draw with 40 percent of gameday attendees coming from outside the metro area and 20 percent from other states. Owner Zygi Wilf, who was slated to speak on Tuesday, has proposed to give the third largest owner contribution in NFL history – $420 million of the proposed $600 million. Dayton charged that lawmakers, unwilling to vote on a stadium, were putting their jobs as legislators ahead of thousands of needed jobs that a big construction project would bring. Dayton, as in the past, would not say which of the stadium proposals, Arden Hills or ones in downtown Minneapolis, he favors. A stadium could be built without using any state general fund taxpayer dollars, Dayton said. Dayton indicated a pref-

erence for the use of pulltab dollars, but did not rule out racino, a sales tax on sports memorabilia, or most other potential funding sources. But he did indicate that he did not favor the use of Legacy Amendment dollars for stadium financing. Letting the Vikings stadium issue slip into the regular legislative session in January will serve only to dilute it, Dayton argued. The stadium issue would then be in “limbo� even longer, he said. Dayton did not specifically mention the names of lawmakers whom he perceives as playing games. “If the shoe fits, wear it,� he said. An email from House Speaker Kurt Zellers, RMaple Grove, to Republican lawmakers that came to light last week indicated the speaker had decided against a special session, though Dayton said Zellers had never indicated that to him. “It’s time for the leaders of the Legislature to show some leadership,� Dayton said.

the father of City Council Member Colleen LaBeau, asked that if the fees are reduced because of the study that he be reimbursed the difference between current and any future reduced rate, according to city documents. LaBeau said that the current fee rate was set when land went for $150,000. Now that it’s at $18,000 to $30,000, it is just too expensive. Her vote on the Crescent Ridge project at an October meeting sparked cries of a conflict of interest in certain circles. Some alleged that she was trying to save her father money on park dedication with a vote. Alas, that was not the case. Immediately following that meeting, LaBeau told City Administrator Steve Mielke she made a mistake voting and intended to abstain from voting on her father’s project. LaBeau abstained from an additional vote on the Crescent Ridge project at the Nov. 7 meeting. City Attorney Roger Knutson has said that there is no conflict of interest

because LaBeau is an independent person who does not live with her father. “I haven’t lived with him since I was one,� LaBeau said. In addition to the park dedication fees study, consultant The Planning Company will complete the city’s five-year update of the Lakeville parks, trails and open spaces plan. The update includes a look at current issues and policies, a social profile based on Census data, land use planning and coordination and a park facilities inventory, among other things. These updates are standard practice. Parks and Recreation Director Steve Michaud said the city has updated its plan every five years since the 1970s. Dan Licht of The Planning Company has completed the last three updates.

November 11, 2011 THISWEEK

Opinion Thisweek Columnist

Entertainment is worth public support Larry Werner THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

As the guy who is lucky enough to manage the largest news organization south of the river, I get to attend a lot of meetings all over Dakota County. Among those I attended this past week were two that dealt with public funding of entertainment. Beyond that basic similarity, they were very different meetings. But they got me to thinking about the role entertainment plays in the quality of our lives. The first meeting, on Monday, consisted of a dozen volunteers who make up the steering committee for the Dakota County Regional Arts Collaborative. It was held at the Steeple Center, Rosemountâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s arts center, which was built in the old St. Joseph Catholic Church. The second meeting, on Tuesday, was a lively lunch for several hundred at the Holiday Inn & Suites in Lakeville. There, members of the Lakeville and Burnsville chambers of commerce cheered employees, players and cheerleaders of the Minnesota Vikings. At both meetings, there was discussion of public funding for

the entertainment industry. The arts collaborative is a year-old organization put together by LaDonna Boyd, economic development director for Farmington-based Dakota Electric. Boyd pulled arts folks together a year ago to talk about coordinating and promoting the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s arts organizations and artists. This soft-spoken, but hardcharging, businesswoman has long believed that the arts contribute not only to our enjoyment but to economic development. The organizational meeting of the collaborative a year ago drew about 70 people who represent arts groups in the county. The first annual meeting of the collaborative could draw 100 people to the Lakeville Area Arts Center from 1 to 3 p.m. on Nov. 16. At Mondayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s meeting of the steering committee, the members, who represent the arts from Eagan to Lakeville and from Hastings to Burnsville, talked about the need for funding. At the annual meeting, the committee will set a date for electing a board of directors, which will then adopt bylaws. That kind of structure is need-

ed, Boyd said, if the collaborative hopes to get a few thousand dollars from the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Legacy Fund, which awards grants from sales-tax receipts for environmental and cultural activities. At this point, the collaborative is using a Legacy grant of $1,500 for its organizational activities, which have included focus groups on what county arts groups want from a collaborative. Michael Bateson, a marketing representative with Charter Communications who also is an actor, said artists such as he need support from a county-wide arts group. Others described artists, arts centers and arts groups as small businesses in a growing industry that deserves public support. Bateson leaned over during the meeting to tell me nearly 200 attended his one-man Mark Twain show in Lakeville last month. The next day, at the Holiday Inn, Vikings executive Lester Bagley told the chamber members the football team provides entertainment for millions of fans and generates millions of dollars for the state and its business community. He introduced cheerleaders, Viking radio voice Paul Allen

and players Michael Jenkins and Brian Robison as part of a campaign to get $600 million in public money to build a new stadium for the team. Bagley showed a slick video that suggests a new stadium is not an arena for the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wealthy owners and multimillionaire athletes, but a monument to the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 50-year history. At my table, some local business executives expressed concerns about spending millions on a stadium but admitted they do love their Vikings and hope they can give the Packers their first loss in Green Bay on Monday night. I, too, bleed purple, which is no small admission for a guy who grew up in Michigan watching the Detroit Lions. But I understand that while I am home watching Christian Ponder connect with Michael Jenkins on Sunday afternoon, others prefer listening to chamber music or attending art exhibits. Whether itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sports or sculpture, our lives are enriched by art and entertainment. And these cultural pursuits deserve public support. But can we afford what the Vikings want?

Mary Liz Holberg, the state representative from Lakeville, was surrounded by reporters and photographers after the Vikings lunch. Would she support a stadium bill? She wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t comment until there is one, said the Republican chair of the House Ways and Means Committee. After the metro media moved away, I asked her why no one is talking about adding seats to TCF Bank Stadium so the Vikings can play in a lovely new stadium at the U. I was encouraged to hear her say that such a proposal is being drafted in St. Paul. As a supporter of the arts and a Viking fan, I think the county arts collaborative deserves more than $1,500 in public funding â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and the Vikings deserve something less than $600 million. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hope our lawmakers can find a way to keep the Vikings with a sensible stadium plan and that the Vikings beat the Packers on Monday.

Letters Get Ready for â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Give to the Max Dayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; To the editor: In the next week, your email in box will probably be filled with requests to â&#x20AC;&#x153;Give To The Maxâ&#x20AC;? on Nov. 16. Last year, $10 million was raised for Minnesota nonprofits by 42,624 online donors during this annual day of charitable giving. So how will you decide where to give your hardearned dollars? Might be a time to prioritize your giving habits. Some families let their kids help decide what charities they would like to support as a way of teaching them about the value of sharing with those who are less fortunate. Cheerful Givers, which provides birthday gifts for kids in Minnesota who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get to celebrate their birthday, is just one example of several thousand nonprofits who need your help (www.cheerfulgivers. org). To encourage donations

throughout the day, an individual donor will be randomly chosen every hour by GiveMN.org to win a â&#x20AC;&#x153;Golden Ticket.â&#x20AC;? An additional $1,000 will be given to the charity that received the original donation, and one name will be randomly drawn to win a $10,000 golden ticket. Local musician, Tim Mahoney, has written a song to be unveiled on this day whose title sums it all up â&#x20AC;&#x201C; â&#x20AC;&#x153;Just Give.â&#x20AC;? KAREN KITCHEL President Cheerful Givers Eagan

Farmington teacher remembered

cards especially were a daily reminder for our mother of how many people cared and loved her. We would also like to acknowledge the support given by St. Michaelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Catholic Church, the Farmington School District, family and many friends at the time of her passing. The flowers and cards/memorials were greatly appreciated. A memorial contribution to the school district is planned in memory of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nurse Noodles.â&#x20AC;? The students made her daily routine the most enjoyable. With our sincerest gratitude. KATIE WANGEN QUENZER and EMILY WANGEN SHERMAN and families

If you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pay dollar one into the system, you havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t earned your vote. You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get a say as to who that system employs and what decisions are made. The simple reason being that if you put any amount of skin in the game, you question and respect how that money is being used. If you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, you cannot really be as genuinely concerned. Therefore, why would you get a say? And please donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t argue that there are other forms of taxes than just income. With all the government credits available today, most people who pay $0 in

income taxes also receive a net check back each year, covering their sales and property tax expenditures. This country was built on self-sufficiency, not nanny state principles. Self-sufficiency is what made the USA the greatest country on Earth, and it is self-sufficiency that must prevail. Would anybody disagree with the sentiment that sparked a revolution? Would anybody disagree that legitimate taxpayers are being treated in the same way today? MARK BELLILE Lakeville

Minnesota has a rich choral tradition that resonates throughout high school and college auditoriums and church steeples across the state. While students have a chance to explore a broad repertoire, after their college graduations often their soaring voices canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be heard singing much more than hymns on Sundays. The 100-member Minnesota Valley Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Chorale plans to change all that. Founded by longtime District 196 vocal music teacher Judy Sagen, the chorale will stage its inaugural performances this weekend at two Apple Valley churches. While the group is steeped in Minnesotaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s choral tradition, the women hope to start a tradition of their own. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to introduce audiences to the power and beauty of the womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s repertoire,â&#x20AC;? Sagen said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We believe in the performance of creative and challenging music that entertains, inspires and affirms with a spirit of friendship and hope.â&#x20AC;? Rehearsals for the upcoming performances, which will be in conjunction with the 9-year-old Minnesota Valley Menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Chorale, started in August.

Deputies investigating death find marijuana plants by Laura Adelmann THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

A Farmington man has been charged with possession and intent to distribute marijuana that was allegedly discovered by Dakota County Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s deputies investigating his wifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s death on Aug. 31. Keith Glen Doan, 52, was charged Oct. 28 with a felony and a gross misdemeanor for possessing marijuana, marijuana seeds and paraphernalia, and growing marijuana that prosecutors allege he intended to sell. Dakota County Sher-

iffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office Capt. Jim Rogers said deputies found the marijuana on a dresser in the bedroom where Doanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wife Marlane, 41, had died of natural causes. Her body had been discovered by the coupleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s children, one an adult, who called 911. Marijuana plants were also found in the bedroom. The Dakota County Drug Task Force was called, and Doan allegedly told investigators he had marijuana plants in an outbuilding on the property. The Dakota County

criminal complaint stated Doan said he had planted the marijuana months earlier and harvested about 11 plants Aug. 22. Rogers said the marijuana was drying in the building. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was pretty forthright about what we found,â&#x20AC;? Rogers said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a difficult time to be asking him questions.â&#x20AC;? If convicted, Doan faces a maximum five years and a $10,000 fine.

Many have cited the tough economy, the financial struggles of limited and fixed incomes and the lack of good-paying jobs. Schorzman has responded that the need for repairs and maintenance is a necessity, and building a cash reserve for projects will save taxpayers millions in interest payments. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a crappy time to be talking about this,â&#x20AC;? Schorzman said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But the reality is this: As long as the sewer functions, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a beautiful thing. When it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, nobody will care anything about anything else that we do at the city other than that I want my toilet to flush and I want this sewage out of my basement.â&#x20AC;? The third and final budget open house is Nov. 14 from 6 to 8 p.m. at City Hall. Farmington City Council members will use information gleaned during the open houses to discuss the budget at a 6:30 p.m. Nov. 15 public workshop at City Hall. The final 2012 budget and levy will be passed in December.

ment on individual personnel matters. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in a strong, healthy financial position now because weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got the staffing level that we can sustain and support,â&#x20AC;? said Ajax, who began work 37 years ago for the human-service agency formerly called Community Action Council. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have eliminated a whole level of services and flattened our organization,â&#x20AC;? Ajax said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are putting all of our dollars into direct services at a time when the needs of the community have also increased incredibly.â&#x20AC;? Adjusting levels is nothing new for the 40-year-old agency, Ajax said Friday. 360 Communities had a

year-end deficit in 2010 of $580,540, according to the state attorney generalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office. Revenue totaled $3.37 million, with expenses of $3.95 million. The deficit figure is skewed because it reflects only nine months of revenue after the agency switched to a new fiscal year, Ajax said. For the newly begun 2011-12 fiscal year, Oct. 1 to Sept. 31, 360 Communities has budgeted $4.3 million, Ajax said. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s compared with $4.8 million back in 2007, even though the needs of the Dakota County communities 360 serves have grown, Ajax said. The $700,000 in United Way funding that 360 got in 2007 has shrunk to $230,000 today, she said. County and state fund-

The Dakota County Board of Commissioners is seeking qualified applicants for expiring terms and mid-term vacancies on the following citizen advisory committees: â&#x20AC;˘ Dakota - Scott Workforce Investment Board; â&#x20AC;˘ Community Correc-

ing have been cut, Ajax said. The only stable source of funding has been contributions from citizens and businesses, she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need the community now more than ever when the needs are great,â&#x20AC;? she said, noting that 360 gets about 40 percent of its contributions from October through December. Konat started in his new position on Oct. 17 as CEO of DARTS, a West St. Paul-based nonprofit that addresses transportation and other needs for the aging population.



cluding roads and water lines, is a priority for city officials, but funding is a challenge. To extend the life of the clay sewer lines, the city has installed liners and performed repairs as necessary, but eventually the sewer lines will need to be replaced. Replacing old clay sewer lines with modern, strong, smooth plastic pipes costs about $300,000 to $350,000 per mile, according to Schorzman. Total reconstruction projects, which involve city sewer, water and roads, costs about $700,000 per mile. For years, Farmington has funded maintenance and repair of its infrastructure, including sewer lines and roads, through assessments and bonding to avoid raising property taxes. Farmingtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s current bond debt is $38.6 million, and its 2012 General Fund operating revenues are expected to be $10.8 million. In comparison, in neighboring Rosemount, which is similar in population to Farmington but includes a bigger commercial/industrial tax base, the city expects

a 2012 General Fund of $10.5 million. That cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s debt will total $21.5 million at the end of 2011, said Rosemount Finance Director Jeff May. Farmington city officials have raised concerns about continuing to bond for projects, and have introduced a controversial plan to raise taxes to build a cash account for anticipated project costs like sewer and roads. Also proposed for funds are parks and trails, fire, police, computers and equipment and building maintenance. The plan is entirely funded with incremental property tax increases for every year through 2023, except in 2013, 2017, 2019 and 2021. If followed, by 2023 average-value homestead property taxes would rise $251 more than in 2011. For the average value commercial property, taxes would be $495 higher in 2023 than in 2011. A chart from Farmington shows citizens will save about $11.7 million in interest with the plan than if funded without adding the levy. During two city open house meetings about the proposed plan, citizens have spoken against the plan.

Panthers qualify for state Lakeville North football will play Cretin-Derham Hall in state quarterfinal game Friday by Andy Rogers THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

The Lakeville North football team will make its third state tournament appearance in five years at 5 p.m. Friday at the Metrodome in the Class 5A state quarterfinals. The Panthers will take on the Cretin Derham-Hall Raiders, who possess one of the top offenses in all of Minnesota, averaging more than 35 points per game. But they haven’t faced a team like Lakeville North, which hasn’t given up more than 14 points in a game all season. “We know they’re 10-0 and we’re 10-0,” junior defensive back Zach Creighton said. “They have good players and we have good players. It’s going to be a battle from start to finish.” Cretin-Derham Hall may not be a familiar team to Lakeville North, but the Panthers have some old scouting material to go on for Friday’s game. In 2007 Lakeville North met the Raiders in the Class 5A state quarterfinal with completely different rosters but similar coaching styles. “Like our coach says, that year (Cretin-Derham

Hall) was better than they are this year and we are better than we were that year,” junior linebacker Mitch Johnson said. In 2007, Cretin-Derham Hall featured Michael Floyd, who is now one of the top college receivers while playing at Notre Dame, along with several other Division I recruits. Lakeville North lost the game 26-18. Four years later the teams will meet again. Last week, Cretin-Derham Hall defeated Eagan 31-12 in the section 3-5A final owing to a heavy dose of James Onwualu, who ran for 220 yards. Eagan missed several tackles, which sprung a lot of big plays, and the Panthers took notice. “If we shut down the run and tackle well, I think we’ll be fine,” Johnson said. The Raiders like to run, averaging 232 yards per game, but they’re not afraid to pass either. “We’ve played teams that can run and stopped them, and teams that can pass and we’ve stopped the pass,” junior defensive end Karl Finkel said. “We’re

not the biggest team, but I like to think we’re one of the fastest and strongest.” Playing in the South Suburban Conference, the Panthers feel battle-tested after games against the likes of Rosemount, Lakeville South, Eastview and Prior Lake, but the Raiders bring something new to the table. “We really haven’t played a team like Cretin,” Johnson said. “They’re a new style. They’re good all around.” The coaches and players spent several hours watching tape of previous Raider games, just like every other game. “We know what they’re going to run out of certain formations,” Johnson said. To get to the state tournament, Lakeville North defeated Owatonna 26-7 on Nov. 4, but the players didn’t feel like it was their best effort. “We definitely could have improved on some things,” Johnson said. “We knew that they were a good team, but there was definitely some things we had to work on because we have to play our best football to beat Cretin this week.”

Lakeville North defeated Lakeville South 25-20, 17-25, 25-22, 22-25, 15-13 in a match of wild momentum swings and hard hits on both sides in the Section 1AAA final Nov. 5 at Simley High School. “I don’t know whether to cry or to freak out,” Lakeville North’s Alyssa Goehner said. “I think it’s going to hit me soon. Two years in a row, it can’t get better than that.” It was back and forth the entire evening. Even in the final game, neither team took more than a 1-point lead until the Panthers pulled ahead 12-10, but the Cougars tied it after a timeout. “It was a crazy game,” Panther head coach Steve Willingham said. “Our team was really steady. During a timeout, whether we were up by four or down by four they were the same. They really understand they don’t have to play any different.” Goehner, who was named to the Class AAA All Tournament team last

year, had 20 kills during the contest against South, but the Cougars found a way to block her several times. Nicole Latzig had 15 kills and helped swing the momentum back on Lakeville North’s side. “I got stuffed a lot,” Goehner said. “You just have to trust people around you.” Lakeville North won the state title last season with several of the same players such as Latzig, Goehner, Abby Monson, Kelly Nizzari, Laura Larson and Jessica Wolff. “They understand what to expect and the logistics of it,” Willingham said. “They understand how hard it is to just get there.” Lakeville South was the top seed and the No. 1 ranked team in Class AAA coming into the game. The only team to defeat the senior-heavy Cougars was Lakeville North. “They’re a great team,” Willingham said. “It’s too bad. They deserve to be (at state) too. ... It was pick your poison with Monica Turner and McKell Anderson out there. We tried to adjust our blocking a little, but they’re just so good.” While Lakeville North came into the season ranked No. 1 in Class AAA, the Panthers slid down the charts with losses to Eagan, Blaine, Bloomington Jef-

ferson, Marshall and Shakopee. In the final weeks, everything seemed to come together. “We knew we had to be a team,” Goehner said. “You can’t rely on just one person. We just have to play as one.” The girls avenged an early-season loss to Eagan in the section semifinals as they swept the Wildcats 3-0 in perhaps their strongest showing yet. “We were so hyped up about it,” Goehner said. “We were looking forward to that match for like two weeks. Every practice was good. We knew we were going to win.” The Class AAA state tournament began Thursday at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul when North played Bemidji. The Panthers were awarded the No. 2 seed behind No. 1 Blaine. “I think it’s going to be easier for us because we’ve been there, but at the same time there are very good teams there,” Monson said. “The first few points we’ll probably be nervous, but knowing that we have players who have been there before will help.” Visit www.ThisweekLive.com for updates.

Lakeville North’s Chloee Sagmoe, No. 106, and Riley Broughten, No. 107, run at the Class AA meet last weekend in Northfield. The team finished in 14th place, nine points behind Prior Lake. Taylor Perkins finished 38th, Emma Johnson 58th, Haley Eskierka 109th, Hannah Evers 132nd, Sagmoe 138th, Broughten 141st and Elle Severson 151st.

Thisweek Newspapers, the Dakota County Tribune and ECM Specialty Publications, the largest news organization in Dakota County, will move its operation from Burnsville to Apple Valley next year after construction of its new, secondfloor space at the Shops on Galaxie is complete. After months of consideration and review of several potential locations throughout Dakota County, the Apple Valley space emerged because of its central location in the county, access to support services and the chance to design the space to the operationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s needs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our employees like the idea of working in an area that is surrounded by restaurants, shopping, and much more,â&#x20AC;? Larry Werner, Thisweek and the Tribuneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s general manager, said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We did not take lightly our decision to move from Burnsville, which has been a very supportive community through the years.â&#x20AC;?
