Lawsuit alleges excessive force by police officers Farmington woman, 61, claims physical, emotional suffering by Laura Adelmann THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

The city of Farmington, Police Chief Brian Lindquist and three Farmington police officers have been named in a federal lawsuit that claims the officers used excessive force. The plaintiff, Barbara Menoch, 61, of Farmington, is seeking punitive damages and compensation in excess of $150,000 and reimbursement of attorney fees. According to the federal complaint filed Nov. 22, Farmington police officers Andy Bellows, Matthew Hendrickson and Casandra Johnson “assaulted and battered� Menoch when they entered the Farmington home she was living in on June 17, 2011. Menoch claims she was not informed of the reason the police entered her home, and that they kicked

and struck her “numerous times.� According to her attorney, Kenneth Udoibok, officers were dispatched to Menoch’s house to check on her welfare, after Menoch wrote a text message during a disagreement with family members in which she indicated that if she killed herself everyone would be happy. Shortly after that exchange, Udoibok said officers arrived, repeatedly asking Menoch if she knew why they were there; she kept telling them she didn’t know why they had come to her home. A supplement document completed by Hendrickson states that when he arrived, Bellows and Johnson were on the scene and Menoch was screaming and uncooperative. Udoibok said Menoch kept asking for an explanaSee Force, 11A

District 194 experiments with high-tech Lakeville South High School pilot program a hit with students

Council votes to outsource electrical inspections Vote lays off current in-house position, starts contract with outside party

by Aaron Vehling THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

There’s a certain bustle of activity in this classroom that far exceeds that of a typical, lecture-based environment. Students with open laptops use Google’s cloudbased Apps program to take a quiz. Lakeville South High School AP chemistry teacher Jason Just, also behind a computer, sees the results instantly. Afterward, students collaborate to figure out complex problems. Just interrupts occasionally to check in on them and to implore the teens to “check your Gmail� accounts for more information, announcements and other classroom materials. So when does he introduce new lessons to this spirited group of students learning college-level material? He records lectures and distributes them as video podcasts, which he said allows students to “attend� his lectures at flexible hours. “It was different at first,� said junior Cash Rodamaker, “but now I think it’s a lot more helpful.� This is called the “reverse classroom,� and it is part of a pilot program that Lakeville School District 194 has initiated as a gateway to a more connected, tech-savvy learning experience that district officials say will better prepare students for the postsecondary and working worlds.

AP chemistry teacher Jason Just checks real-time results of an online quiz his students take via Google Apps as part of a high-tech pilot program at Lakeville South High School. the School Board, Superintendent Lisa Snyder discussed a number of measures that would go into a comprehensive district technology plan, including improving Wifi access in school buildings, providing free cloud-based computing via Google (which Just and his class use for email and quizzes) and tailoring classes to the immediate learning styles of today’s students. Students nowadays are “collaborative learners,� Snyder said. In addition, they “like immediate answers.� Hence the real-time quizzes and cloud-based crowd-sourcing. “Our overall job as educators is to create conditions for learning to occur,� Snyder said. “The highest form of learning now is creating. We must

challenge our students to become these creators.� The district doesn’t want students to have to wait until a specific media center hour or until they get home to do such research, she said. Providing the tools to match learning styles is a must. “That’s the kind of learning environment we have to create for students,� she said. To ensure students are actually watching his lectures at home, Just checks their notes. One lesson Just teaches them is that “the most important thing you own is your time.� “If you choose to spend time learning something, you can watch the lecture at any time and take notes on that,� he said. But which is better: the traditional “lecture and

listen� or the reverse classroom?

As the 2012 budget vote approaches this month, the Lakeville City Council affirmed one part of its reduced expenditures: the outsourcing of electrical inspections. The council approved in a 4-1 vote Monday, Dec. 5, contracting for electrical inspection services with an outside party, effectively laying off the person serving an in-house role. The move toward contracting with Steven Kletschka, who currently does inspections for Faribault, Minn., will save

Learning effects That question nagged Just, too. So he conducted a scientific study to discover the answer. He compared a traditional lecture class with a high-tech pilot program class. The quantitative data (the numeric statistics) suggested that the difference was negligible. The students did not do better or worse. But that does not mean the students were unaffected. Just said when he asked students how they felt about the new method, they were quite supportive. “Ninety percent said they liked the reverse classroom better,� he said. Count Rodamaker was one of those students. See High-tech, 5A

the city about $77,000 over the next two years, Finance Director Dennis Feller said. Declining permit revenue and the need for trimming the budget led city staff and the council to explore this option. Council Member Matt Little was the dissenting vote, citing a concern about compromised customer service and public safety associated with the move. “This looks like savings,� Little said, “but it’s not necessarily savings.

Decision meant to send state a message: Don’t burden cities by Laura Adelmann THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

The Farmington City Council’s 2012 budget is meant to make a statement to Minnesota legislators: quit balancing the state’s budget on the backs of local government. On a 3-2 vote Dec. 5, the council passed a levy of $8,565,982, the same amount levied in 2011, and rejected a plan to decrease the levy by 1.65 percent. Instead, the council eliminated the $141,192 proposed levy cut and will use the money for a contingency fund. City Administrator David McKnight said on Tuesday that money may help

fill some of the funding gap that exists in 2013. The gap will occur because the council is using one-time fiscal disparities funds of $367,258 to give taxpayers relief in 2012. Council Member Christy Jo Fogarty suggested the city not cut property taxes and leave the city’s budget unchanged for 2012. “Cities can’t continue to make up for what the state does,� Fogarty said. She said that if the city maintains its 2011 levy, citizens will know 100 percent of their property tax increase is attributable to state actions. City Finance Director See Budget, 12A

Inspections/from 1A ter of whether one is biased toward the public or the private sector. “The heart of the issue is that Little will protect a public employee, even if it means taxpayers get the short end of the stick,� Bellows said in a phone interview after the meeting. Discussions have occurred occasionally throughout 2011 about the fate of in-house electrical inspection services. At a Feb. 28 work session, Director of Community and Economic Development David Olson said the initial reason the city got into the inspections business was to improve

ďż˝

  

“the level and quality of service.� Until 2004, the city contracted with the state for inspection services. The problem with that arrangement, Olson said at the time, was the precarious nature of dealing with a large agency such as that. “State inspectors would give a four- to eight-hour window during which a state inspector was expected to show up,� Olson said at that meeting. “Do-ityourselfers and homeowners were having to take off work to be at their house for the state to show up.� Once Lakeville took over inspections, permit seekers were able to sched-

ule appointments with city reception within a halfhour window. But that was during a high-point in development in the city, when permits were issued in the thousands. In 2004, the city earned $162,000 in revenue from electrical permits, which Olson said was a record year. Between 2005 and 2008, the revenues hovered between $110,000 and $120,000. After that revenues declined to $90,000 in 2009 and $72,000 in 2010. Olson said there are not exact numbers yet for 2011 (electrical permits are often included with other permits to ease the process

for customers), but he does not think this year will be a reduction from 2010. “Total permit values are up from last year,� he said. But as these revenues declined, and as the new City Council sought to give taxpayers a break, that $77,000 biennial savings was a necessary thing to pursue.

Changes Under the contract with Kletschka, the city would get 20 percent of the permit revenue. That 30-minute scheduling

window is gone. In its place, Kletschka will field appointment requests within a two-hour window. If residents are unhappy with the new inspector, Olson said in response to a question from Little, Kletschka is still accountable, just as was the previous in-house inspector. “Even though he would not be a city employee, he would still coordinate with the city,� Olson said. Council Member Colleen LaBeau agreed with the move to outsource. “Certainly our own staff could have applied

as contract staff as well,� she said. “I think we’ll get as good of inspections (with Kletschka).� Olson said rates would not rise. The current rate for residential electrical inspections, according to the city’s website, is $89.50 plus a state surcharge. The cost for commercial is a more fluid formula dependent on the job cost. The City Council will vote on the 2012 budget at its Dec. 19 meeting. Aaron Vehling is at aaron.vehling@ecm-inc.com and www. facebook.com/thisweeklive.

A Christmas for Christians – and Muslims by Aaron Vehling THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

We are in Advent season, the time when Christians prepare to celebrate the birth of our lord and savior Jesus Christ. It turns out some Muslims prepare for this, too. Khaled Elabdi, of Lakeville, is a Sufi Muslim. In his home, along with images of some key Sufist sheikhs, is a depiction honoring Christ. Elabdi said Sufis honor Jesus’ birth because they see him as a prophet of God. He even cited a reference to Jesus as a “messiah� in an English translation of the Quran. “Do I accept Jesus as my savior? I do, because I’m awaiting him,� Elabdi said. “Just as you are.� Elabdi will join the congregants of the Spirit of Joy church in Lakeville on Sunday, Dec. 11, at 9:30 a.m. to discuss Sufis and Christmas, in addition to the idea that – by God – people with different backgrounds can indeed get along. Everyone is welcome

to attend. “It’s a wonderful opportunity to build interfaith relations in Lakeville,� said the Rev. Jan Linn, Spirit of Joy co-pastor. “Lord knows the world needs the religions to get along.� Elabdi is originally from Morocco, a nation at the crossroads of European, Middle Eastern and African thought for more than a millennium. The concept of diverse people tolerating one another is not new to him. In his more than 20 years raising children in America with his wife, Theresa Kruser, Elabdi has at times served to translate the teachings of Sheikh Khaled Bentounes, the head of his global Sufi order, into books in English and French. His day job is as an ESL teacher at McGuire Middle School. To help someone like me understand what Sufism is, Elabdi quoted Bentounes. “If Islam is a body, then Sufism is the heart,� he said. That heart – that intimacy

Khaled Elabdi with God – goes beyond even the personal connections of prayer at the mosque. “There is that intimate prayer that gives you more strength,� he said. “That is when you and God share moments of intimacy. It will depend on your softness toward and knowledge of God – and his grace towards you.� Another possible way to put it: “Worship God as if you are in

Letters Needing a defense To the editor: A retired military officer recently defended his friend, U.S. Rep. John Kline, from a reader who disagrees with Kline’s inaccurate idea that government-run health care is more expensive and less efficient than private health care. The officer and Kline both ignored reports from

his presence, as if you are seeing him. Know that if you are not able to, know that he is.� More orthodox Muslims often disagree with the Sufis’ take on Islam. The celebration of Christmas is a source of befuddlement to them. But Elabdi sees celebrating Jesus as part of the deal. His family has a Christmas tree, and his in-laws will come over and eat and open gifts with his family. Those are cultural parts of the celebration, though. After all, the Christmas tree and gifts were not always part of the Christian calendar. Beyond that, the Sufis apply their theological approach to honoring Jesus. They see how far the season has gone from honoring Christ in favor of retail dominance. “The spirit of prayer is gone,� Elabdi said. “The spirit of prophecy is gone. It’s that spirit we want to revive. That’s what Sufism is all about: the spirt of all things.� Judaism, Christianity and Islam all share a common heritage going back to Abraham. Linn

said realizing this commonality – but also remembering to be decent to the non-Abrahamic religions – is a must. “The way to be in peace is to learn and respect one another,� Linn said. “We need to get along. It’ll make us a better place to live.� Elabdi sees his efforts to discuss Sufi Islam in an ecumenical sense as a way to heal a false wedge placed by those who would rather there be divisions. “Unfortunately, there are people who want Christians and Muslims to be separated,� he said, “but we are awaiting Christ’s return just like you guys are.� It is a nice thought for the season. What better gift than respect is there to give someone? Aaron Vehling is the Lakeville Editor for Thisweek Newspapers.

Guest Columnist the Government Accountability Office and the Congressional Budget Office that universal health care would save more than it costs. It seems a person’s military record doesn’t necessarily give him good judgment on important public questions. I wonder if the officer’s defense extends to Kline’s statement that private college education is more ef-

ficient and effective than public education. Higher default rates at private colleges are costing us all tax money. If Kline, who chairs the U.S. House Education Committee, refuses to take action to stop these financial abuses, no wonder he needs defense from his military friend. PAUL HOFFINGER Eagan

Toys for Tots a great way to give back by John Kline THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

Like many Minnesotans, I am a proud and grateful grandparent. Whether I am hunting and fishing with my grandkids or playing games and helping them with homework when my wife, Vicky, and I visit, we cherish the memories with all four family blessings. It seems like just yesterday when they, nestled on my lap, were bursting with unbridled excitement and enthusiasm on Christmas to tear off the gift wrapping and unveil the surprises that awaited them. But in no time at all, the annual opening of Legos, Tonka trucks, and Barbie dolls has given way to the sights and sounds of the latest electronic gadgets. Throughout our lives, most of us have captured the memorable vision of children still in their pajamas sprinting down the stairway to the Christmas tree to discover what gift-wrapped surprises awaited. Every child should be able to experience that memorable joy. In our household, the Christmas season provides an opportunity to reflect on our many blessings and celebrate what is most important to us: faith, family, friends, and the freedoms we enjoy. The holidays also give us an opportunity to reflect on our less fortunate neighbors and consider ways we can help ease their burdens. By now most – if not all – of us have been touched in some way by the economic challenges facing our nation. Across the country, unemployment has been too high for too long and Minnesotans are not immune to the downturn. The debate on how this happened and, more importantly, what to do to help our economy so job creators can do what they do best – create jobs – can be saved for another day. What cannot be ignored are the many Minnesota families who are trying to figure out how they can purchase gas and

groceries while still making their monthly mortgage payments – let alone a special gift for their child. As Christmas approaches, I ask that you join me in easing their minds. Founded in 1947, Toys for Tots began when Maj. Bill Hendricks and a group of Marine reservists in California collected and distributed more than 5,000 toys to needy children. Last year, Marines distributed more than 16.7 million toys to nearly 7.2 million children through the program. Many of the gifts Toys for Tots provides, such as books, games, and sports equipment, make a significant contribution to the educational, social, and recreational development of these children. If you would like to join me in supporting the Toys for Tots effort, please bring your unwrapped toys to one of numerous drop-off sites in the 2nd District. Staff Sgt. Michael Rice reports the Twin Cities warehouse in Eagan could use more toys, especially for boys and girls, ages 14-17. Please visit one of the following websites to find a drop-off site near you: • Dakota, Scott, and Carver counties – http://minneapolis-mn.toysfortots.org • Goodhue County – http://red-wingmn.toysfortots.org • Rice County – http://faribault-mn. toysfortots.org • Le Sueur County – http://mankatomn.toysfortots.org As a 25-year veteran of the Marine Corps, I have a fondness for the Toys for Tots initiative. As a grandpa, I do, too. Please join me and Vicky this Christmas season in doing what we can to help ensure a special Christmas morning for every child in Minnesota. John Kline, R-Lakeville, represents Minnesota’s 2nd Congressional District. He and his wife, Vicky, live in Lakeville. Columns reflect the opinion of the author.

Change is coming to Farmington schools. A new focus on individualized learning has the district’s new leadership proposing to revamp facility plans, increase technology and redesign classroom instructional methods. To introduce the public to future plans and gain feedback, the district will hold three roundtable meetings beginning Wednesday, Dec. 14, from 5 to 6:30 p.m. at Boeckman Middle School cafeteria. The other two meetings are slated from 7 to 8:30

But he is quick to say the old model was not worse or ineffective. It is just different. “I’ve taught straightup lecture classes for many years,� he said. “It’s effective in some ways and not in others.� LSHS Principal Scott Douglas said that based on his observations of the two pilot classes at his school (Just’s and an AP psychology course), students are taking a profound interest in the new model. “Kids who engage in educational technology engage in the learning process at a very high level that excites them,� he said.

p.m. Thursday, Dec. 15, in the Farmington High School commons and from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 20, at Meadowview Elementary in the cafetorium. Presentations will include district facility planning and budget options; attendees will discuss the plans at roundtable conversations led by district principals. Jim Skelly, Farmington Schools communications and marketing coordinator, said one of the biggest instructional changes districtwide will be an inverted classroom. Under this model, stu-

dents listen to a teacher’s instructions on an electronic device at home and work on problems and worksheets during class, so the teacher is available to answer questions. Some classes in the district are already involved in that kind of structure, but the district intends to introduce the inverted structure as a pilot program at every school, Skelly said. Because of the new focus on technology, the district earlier this year paused its plans for remodeling at several elementary schools. New Farmington FiSee Plans, 6A

The only reticence he said teachers have seen was reluctance among students to bring their own devices to school. “The students fear theft or damage to their devices,� he said. “That was an unexpected development.� The district provides some laptops for use during class. One of the key components in the district’s comprehensive technology plan is wireless infrastructure in all buildings, Snyder said in her presentation to the board. A cloud, network-based platform is impossible without it. LSHS was built less than 10 years ago, which means the district had the luxury to include advanced infrastructure in the plans. Other buildings would need retrofitting.

As a result, Douglas said the only cost to his school was staff development time. Timelines, costs and other details associated with the rollout of a comprehensive change in technology are forthcoming this month. The School Board will discuss the initiative, particularly the funding, at a study session on Tuesday, Dec. 13. “We envision an integration of digital tools, textbooks and resources,� Snyder said. “Instead of thinking about digital and print, we should move toward an environment of fully digital textbooks and resources.� Aaron Vehling is at aaron.vehling@ecm-inc.com and www. facebook.com/thisweeklive.

Grateful Farmington survivor pays it forward

Judge blocks child care union vote by T.W. Budig

Subway restaurant on Pilot Knob given life-saving device

ECM CAPITOL REPORTER

by Laura Adelmann THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

Most people don’t survive what Jim Glynn has been through, and he’s working on raising the odds for others. This summer, the Farmington resident suffered sudden cardiac arrest while sleeping. Sudden cardiac arrest causes unexpected loss of heart function, breathing and consciousness. It is the nation’s No. 1 killer. Thanks to the prompt actions of his family, the 911 operator and emergency responders, Glynn is one of the few sudden cardiac arrest survivors. At a recent survivors’ dinner sponsored by Allina’s Heart Safe Community Program, Glynn was presented with an automated external defibrillator, the same kind of machine used to save his life. Determining that Farmington’s northern area businesses have no access to an AED for emergency use, Glynn offered the machine to Don Schussler, owner of the Pilot Knob Subway restaurant, who obtained authorizations to have it placed at his business. Glynn said to survive a Plans/from 5A nance Director Carl Colmark has reviewed the plans in light of the new focus and will present recommendations to the board at its Monday, Dec. 12, meeting. More information about the district facilities will be

He said virtually anyone can use the AED device to take advantage of those first critical minutes. “It talks you through what you should do, even to the point that if you do something wrong, it corrects you,� Glynn said. He noted that a new method of performing cardiopulmonary resuscitation does not require mouth-tomouth contact. “I believe that held people back from getting involved,� Glynn said. Glynn presented Schussler with the AED during an informal event at the Subway restaurant

Monday, Dec. 5. Also attending the presentation was Katie Kuenzi, the first person to respond to Glynn’s emergency. “It was good to see her again,� Glynn said. “She’s my hero.� Glynn said he hopes the AED won’t be needed, but if someone else suffers a sudden cardiac arrest, it will save other lives. “I attribute my being here as a result of an AED, so having one accessible is very important,� Glynn said. “It will be interesting to see down the road if another success story is achieved.�

presented and discussed at the roundtable meetings. Those who attend will be offered a piece of homemade pie, baked by Superintendent Jay Haugen, and cookies made by School Board Chair Tera Lee. Another set of roundtable meetings will be held in

February, Skelly said. He noted the district intends to regularly hold such informal gatherings to keep in tune with the community and invite open communications.

Ramsey County District Court Judge Dale Lindman blocked on Monday, Dec. 5 a proposed child care unionization vote scheduled to be held within a few days. Democratic Gov. Mark Dayton by executive order recently put the election into motion. Opponents say the governor has no right, arguing such an action rightly belongs to the Legislature. In a statement, Dayton said he respected the court decision. “I am pleased the court was clear that I did not misuse my authority in issuing the executive order,� Dayton said. “I continue to believe that in a democracy, people should have rights to elections to determine their own destinies.� Dayton said he would meet with the state attorney general’s office to decide what steps should be taken next. The unionization vote would affect about 4,300 Minnesota at-home child care providers who accept statesubsidized children. Lisa Thompson, a St. Paul child care provider and provote activist, said she was “real surprised� by the restraining order because similar unionization votes had taken place successfully in other states. Thompson was critical of Republicans — Senate Republicans last week approved the filing of a friend of the court brief to support a lawsuit filed by a group of child care providers, including Becky Swanson of Lakeville, opposing the vote. Thompson said she did not believe Republicans had her best interests as a child care provider in mind. “There is no predetermined agenda,� Thompson said. When asked what a child care providers union would

push for if formed, she said the agenda would emerge from the members. One thing child care providers already share is a desire to be heard, Thompson said. Service Employees International Union Local 284 Executive Director Carol Nieters charged that on the eve of an important vote conservative corporate interests and their “lapdogs� in the Legislature threw a wrench into the wheels of democracy. “This sham lawsuit and their entire campaign of misinformation is just another example of the vicious attacks on working families by national corporate interests and the politicians who do their bidding,� she said. “From Ohio to Wisconsin and New Hampshire to Minnesota, the story is the same: they will stop at nothing to deny working people the right to form a union for a voice in our democracy.� The lawsuit was backed by Minnesota Majority, the Minnesota Free Market Institute and other groups. Pat Gentz, a Lakeville child care provider, said opponents of the child care unionization vote were “really pleased� with the court order. “The battle has still not been won yet,� said Gentz, noting that further legal action was possible. Gentz was not one of the parties in the suit. Annette Meeks, of the Freedom Foundation of Minnesota, said her group was pleased. “Today’s developments are great news for the scores of child care providers from across Minnesota who have worked tirelessly to preserve their independence and fight against a coercive and intrusive unionization scheme by the governor and labor unions,� she said in a statement. Senate Health and Human Services Committee Chair-

man David Hann, R-Eden Prairie, was pleased — you never know what a court might do, he said. Hann, who stood outside the Governor’s Office in protest the day Dayton formally announced his executive order, said he does not oppose unionization. If a group of child care providers wanted to call themselves a union, that’s up to them, he said. Hann opposes Dayton’s executive order, arguing the governor breached the separation of powers between the executive and legislative branches of government. Hann believes the Minnesota Senate would not approve holding a child care unionization election as proposed by the governor. “Just because they (issues) belong there (in the Legislature), doesn’t mean we should do them,� he said. Hann held open the possibility of a future committee hearing should Dayton advance legislation. Senate Majority Leader Amy Koch, R-Buffalo, also expressed satisfaction with the order. “The unionization of child care providers has been a longtime goal of AFSCME (American Federation of State, County, Municipal Employees) and SEIU and the governor’s attempt appears to be payoff for political support he received from those unions in the 2010 election,� Koch said in a statement. Lindman’s order allows for a further hearing on Jan. 17, 2012. Under Dayton’s executive order, state government agencies would formally acknowledge the bargaining powers of a child care union, should one have emerged from the vote, and negotiate with the union in good faith.

Basketball is a game of confidence, but for those playing varsity for the first time, it takes a few dribbles to develop it. With four seniors on the roster of the Farmington boys basketball team, the squad is heavy on youth and light on experience. It showed in the team’s first game, a 59-35 loss to Rochester John Marshall last week. The Tigers lost their second game to Rochester Century on Tuesday, 60-49, but coach Shane Wyandt felt a little better after the game. A big relief was the reduction in turnovers from 42 to 17 from game one to two. The Tigers cut Century’s lead to two points several times. “I thought for the most part we were playing hard and we were toe-to-toe with them, but we got worn down,” Wyandt said. “We’re a young bunch that’s very inexperienced, but to come back like that with an 8-0 run was pretty good.” Darren Beenken led the Tigers with 18 points. He’s one of the returning players with experience along with

Austin Bassett and Nick Varner. Wyandt plans to experiment with his starting lineup for a while depending on matchups and who is playing well. With a deep bench, he feels he can use a lot of players, which will help in getting the team some much-needed experience. “Even our older players haven’t played a lot of varsity. They’re learning just like our younger players,” Wyandt said. Other seniors include Alec Hogstad, Jake Hanson and Grant Blomster. “We have some pretty savvy young players,” Wyandt said. “They’re not arrogant, but they know they’re good. Once they get some experience I think we can be pretty good. “I can help with the confidence, but I can’t give it to them.” One thing they can’t change is their height. The Tigers won’t tower over too many teams this season, so they plan on playing an up-tempo game. “We were getting a little helter skelter on defense and taking some gambles,” Wyandt said of the Cen-

tury game.”You got to have that switch. We had guys force up some shots. You got to be able to turn that off. That will come. We’ll get there. ... Once they get it, they’ll know how to do it. It’s funny how that has a domino effect. Basketball is all about confidence. “We can do a lot of different things. We’re very aggressive. We’re showing glimpses of what we can be.” The Tigers play Friday night at Hastings. Next Friday, the team will play Zimmerman at Target Center in Minneapolis at 7 p.m. Tickets for the non-conference contest may be purchased at the Farmington High School athletic office or by contacting Wyandt. Admission is $15 and it comes with a ticket for the Minnesota Timberwolves or Lynx. Andy Rogers is at andy.rogers@ecm-inc.com. Photo by Andy Rogers

Hoops teams have high expectations this year North and South will play in different playoff sections by Andy Rogers THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS

While it won’t be a factor until March, the Lakeville North and Lakeville South boys basketball teams will be in different playoff sections this year. Last year’s Section 3-4A champion Lakeville South is moving to Section 2-4A with southwestern suburban schools such as Bloomington Jefferson, Kennedy, Prior Lake, Eden Prairie, Chanhassen and Shakopee. Lakeville North is going back to its old stomping ground in Section 1-4A against the Rochester schools along with Farmington, Hastings, Owatonna and Northfield. The Panthers played in the section for several years until 2007, winning the Section 1 title in 2004 and 2006. The team hasn’t returned to state since compiling a 1-4 record in Section 3-4A. “We are excited to be back,” Lakeville North head coach John Oxton said. “I feel we should have never left.”

The lawsuit seeks a trial by jury and claims unreasonable search and seizure, excessive force and illegal arrest and imprisonment. It also claims Menoch suffered physical pain, suffering and emotional trauma. The lawsuit also claims the department was negligent in addressing the incident when it was informed of the alleged misconduct.

Teresa Walters said changes in the market value homestead credit and tax capacity have contributed to property tax increases. Those changes have shifted much of the tax burden to commercial and nonhomestead properties. Under the final budget plan for 2012, taxes on the average market-value home of $193,000, which has decreased in value from $201,000 over the past year, will increase by 4.19 percent, Walters said. She said taxes on an average market-value commercial property of $746,900 will increase by about 13 percent. An average non-homestead property with a market value of $201,000 will rise by about 17 percent, according to Walters. Council members Julie May and Terry Donnelly cast the dissenting votes against the budget, citing concerns about the strain changes in the market value homestead credit puts on business and rental property owners. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to hit the commercial (properties) hard,â&#x20AC;? Donnelly said. May cited concerns that businesses would suffer further in an economy that is struggling. She urged the council to alleviate the burden placed on taxpayers. In an interview,

McKnight said the city will look at restructuring and budget reductions in 2013 to prepare for the potential loss of one-time fiscal disparity money used for 2012. The council decided to retain $162,500 in budget cuts that include reductions in mileage, training, repairs and utilities. The budget includes eliminating McKnightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s salary increase of $4,914 and $7,677 in estimated city management raises. Cuts of $16,723 are included in anticipated pay adjustments for other city staff. Despite the cuts, property taxes are increasing, and Fogarty placed blame on state government for putting cities in the position of raising taxes to make up for state cuts. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like what it does to our businesses, I hate what it does to our nonhomesteaded properties, but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s us not asking our taxpayers for a dime more,â&#x20AC;? Fogarty said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This shiftâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all from things outside of our control.â&#x20AC;? Farmington Mayor Todd Larson cast the swing vote, siding with Fogartyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proposal, which also includes $350,000 for seal coating roads. Fogarty had called sealcoating a â&#x20AC;&#x153;deal breakerâ&#x20AC;? for her, stating she would not support a budget that didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t include the road maintenance plan. Last year, the council cut

sealcoating from its budget, and Fogarty said she didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want the city to continue on the slippery slope of neglecting maintenance. Council Member Jason Bartholomay, who has repeatedly cited concerns about future planning, agreed with Fogarty. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If the state keeps doing this, and we keep lowering our taxes to compensate for them, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to be like weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got some suckers in Farmington, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to keep doing it,â&#x20AC;? Bartholomay said. Fogarty said the state has basically created a progressive tax system in the cities. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you own a higher-valued home or a non-homestead property, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not going to get the buy-down that the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s offering,â&#x20AC;? she said. May said itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a bad idea to direct citizens to the state for complaints about rising tax bills, but she added that organizational changes â&#x20AC;&#x153;are not a bad thingâ&#x20AC;? and the private sector has already been forced to do them. Donnelly said on Tuesday the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s action does send a message to the state, but worried about the cost of its delivery method. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s costing the taxpayers of Farmington $141,192 to send a message to legislators,â&#x20AC;? Donnelly said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not a fan of that.â&#x20AC;?
